Assignment America


Sorry, voting is now closed. The winning story will be revealed Monday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on the CBS Evening News. And tune in to catch Steve Hartman's report on Friday.

Steve could investigate what has to be one of the longest-running poker games in the country: eight guys, 50 years. They're such diehards that when one of them had to go into an assisted-living facility recently, they just moved the game there.

Or, Cuong Ly had 10 pet koi fish at his Chinese restaurant. He says they were good luck - until the government confiscated them. Why were they taken? And after seven months, why is he now getting them back? Send Steve to find out.

Here's a viewer-suggested story. Barbara Sandven of New London, Minn., says we should check out America's coldest, most isolated senior center. It's in the middle of a frozen lake in northernmost Minnesota. Don't forget your heating pad!
