[WIOD] REDLANDS, Calif. (AP) A father who spotted his missing 4-year-old daughter naked, yelling for him and banging on a window inside a neighbor’s apartment stormed the home and rescued the girl, Redlands police said Tuesday. Terence Giberson, 52, lives in the same apartment complex as the girl and her father. He was booked for investigation of kidnapping and child molestation, said Carl Baker, public information officer for the Redlands Police Department. Bail was set at $500,000.

The girl had been playing with friends outside her own apartment around 7:30 p.m. Monday, Baker said. When her father couldn’t find her, he went looking. He found her sippy cup near Giberson’s apartment, then saw his daughter in the window, Baker said. After crashing into the apartment, he found his daughter and Giberson naked, grabbed her and ran out to call police, Baker said. Baker applauded the father for using restraint. “He did what he needed to do to help his daughter and he let the police do their job,” he said.

Pretty safe to say that we can skip the 2nd Annual Dad of the Year Award. There’s no one that’s going to be more deserving than this Redlands Dad. I have to admit though, I was really shocked to read that Giberson was still alive at the end of the story. (more…)

Still plenty of time to get your vote in for Dad of the Year. So far, it looks like Fire Poker Father is running away with it. I’m not going to lie, that surprises me a little. I thought Dead or Alive Dad was a shoe-in. Just goes to show you, you just can’t predict these things. If you haven’t voted, do so now. Hell, if you have voted, go for it again.

Well, Father’s Day is just around the corner and you know what that means. Time for us to hand out our first annual Dad of the Year Award. All of these fathers are heroes in their own right. They are what we should all aspire to be as patriarchs. I can only hope to one day be half the dad these dudes are. Congratulations on a job well done, and may the best dad win.

Like. A. Boss. I think we’ll add this guy to the Dad of the Year competition. It’s not all guns and retribution killings all the time. Sometimes you need a feel good story in there too.

I was at a Mets game in 2008, maybe 2009 I don’t remember… I do remember it was April 13th though, a Friday. I had never had an opportunity to catch a foul ball in my life, until that day. (more…)
