In Case You Missed It: San Diego Good News for Sunday, Feb. 3

Five 'good news' stories from the previous week

To help make sure you stay informed, each Sunday we'll revisit five stories from the previous week and capsulize them in this digest with the most recent updates.

Today's collection highlights some of the positive news events that happened this week. 

1. Couple Thanks 'Hero' Postal Carrier for Rescuing Them From Fiery Wreck

A North County mail carrier is being called a hero after he pulled two people from their burning car after a serious accident. The crash victims have since learned that a postal carrier came to their rescue. He cut them both out of their seatbelts and pulled the couple from the burning car."I will never be able to repay him. He saved my life definitely," one victim said. Watch how they are hoping to repay his kindness.

NBC 7's Dave Summers spoke to a couple rescued from a burning car by a mail carrier on the job.

2. Local Students Take on 'Great Kindness Challenge' 

It was a special week-long event in hundreds of San Diego-area schools this week but did you know only three schools in Carlsbad participated when the Great Kindness Challenge began eight years ago in San Diego? 

One North County elementary school is taking on a kindness challenge for a very unique reward. NBC 7's Audra Stafford has more.

3. Dad and Soccer star Landon Donovan Participates in First Practice with San Diego Sockers

Landon Donovan's comeback is on, as the American soccer star completed his first practice as a member of the San Diego Sockers. Donovan said he "feels like a kid again," as he works to make his indoors soccer debut during the Sockers MASL game.

4. You Are Beautiful

This story can be summed up in three words: You Are Beautiful.

The phrase is now hanging on the side of the Apple Tree Supermarket in Ocean Beach thanks to Stephanie La Bue Robles.

“Even though we’re a small town, we have a big heart,” said Robles. “It’s for everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, what you’re doing, you are beautiful.”

There’s a lot more to the story behind those words, and it begins a decade and a half ago.

A push to get "You Are Beautiful" Signs in each state across the U.S. makes its way to San Diego. NBC 7's Greg Bledsoe heads to "Your Corner" to find out what makes these signs so special.

5. Afternoon Showers Bring Evening Rainbows

Thursday evening may have been a nightmare of a commute home for most of us but the storm that drenched the region left behind a very beautiful sight. 

We received image after image from our followers on social media and NBC 7 viewers who had captured a rainbow or even a double rainbow in the skies over San Diego. Take a look at the images and thanks for sharing! 

Have a great week!
