Jesus as a homeless man? Check out the controversy over a new statue installed outside a church in North Carolina. It has neighbors and church leaders debating its message and whether it's appropriate. Look for this story at noon, and you can see the statue now HERE.

Also today, a homeowner turns the table on a contractor she accused of fraud: she bought the web rights to his name!

Plus, doctors use 3-D printing technology to create an exact replica of the heart of a toddler in need of surgery. Medical experts say the case shows how this type of technology can actually save lives.
