deployed soldier fighting to regain house
Apr. 24, 2014 7:23 am

Sgt. Michael Sharkey was deployed to Afghanistan 2 years ago and left a friend to watch over his house.  Mrs. Sharkey was in Hawaii  as that's where Sharkey is stationed so there's no one living in the house.  Apparently the friend made an agreement with a couple of unsavory individuals.  She let them live in the house while they fixed it up.  Unfortunately the couple now refuses to leave.  They've changed the locks and it appears that the sheriff's department can't do anything about it.  soldier wants squatters out


murder tattoo
Apr. 23, 2014 8:04 am

Jeffrey Chapman decided at one point in his life that it was a good idea to get a mirror image of "murder" tattooed on his neck.  He's rethinking that bad decision now and wants to get it removed.  Should be an easy task but not for an inmate facing a murder charge.  In Kansas only a licensed tattoo artist in a licensed facility can do tattoos and the sheriff isn't willing to transport a murder suspect to a tattoo parlor.  Chapman's defense team believes the tattoo may sway the jury's opinion of him.  There's a definition of ironic!  bad tattoo


It's always good to have a 6-pack in a fight.
Apr. 22, 2014 7:54 am

I'm not talking about the kind of muscles that form a 6-pack; I'm talking about beer.  Two men discovered that a woman was being attacked by a pit bull terrier.  It was chewing on her face and attacking viciously.  Justin Innes tried to break the dog's grasp but was unable to do so.  He asked his son, Jacob for one of the beers from the 6-pack and used it to hit the dog.  Jacob then joined in with the other 5 beers.  They managed to free the 90-year old woman who is now hospitalized in critical condition.  6-pack defeats dog


Nessie, is that you?
Apr. 21, 2014 7:03 am

Apple Maps is getting a lot of publicity.  Why?  Because the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club has claimed that one of their photos reveals the presence of Nessie.  The picture shows a mysterious white blob under the waters of Loch Ness.  It shows what appears to be a pair of flippers at it's side.  Is this the proof that Nessie exists?


Cat lands on it's feet
Apr. 20, 2014 8:12 am

When firefighters broke a window on the third floor of a burning building, they were surprised to see a cat jump, land on it's feet, and run away.  Most cats do land on their feet but not always from that high.  I guess this feline has used up one of it's nine lives.  Cat survives


Honoring Savannah
Apr. 19, 2014 8:09 am

A grieving father will never have the "stolen moments" with his daughter.  Savannah passed away in her sleep at the age of 2.  Larry Carroll wants to give one of those moments to another little girl and her family so he's started raising money to make that happen.  stolen moments


Star Wars
Apr. 18, 2014 8:06 am

Has the filming of the new Star Wars movie begun?  What some are calling "set pictures," have surfaced from a remote area of the Abu Dhabi desert.  No one in the area claims to know anything about it but some Star Wars bloggers are speculating about what the large mechanical pieces are.  Could the large grey disc be the foot of an "At-At?"  Star Wars VII



trash or treasure
Apr. 18, 2014 5:52 am

A man working at a recycling plant found a safe that had been discarded.  He decided to open it; jokingly thinking that there might be a million dollars inside.  What he found was considerably less but still a lot of money; $16,000.  His first thought was to keep it and take his wife on a nice vacation but decided to find the owner and return the cash. cash in dump 


sound canon
Apr. 17, 2014 5:33 am

Driving through construction zones in Missouri just got scary.  Sound canons will be fired at speeders to let them know they're going too fast.  It will give off a deafening sound but opponents are claiming that it could cause more problems than it hopes to solve.  slowing traffic

This is a very adorable video of a dog and a baby tiger playing.  They're the best of friends.  dog/tiger


wallet returned
Apr. 15, 2014 5:46 am

When Christhian Reyes lost his wallet, he didn't expect to get it back the way it was returned.  A good samaritan added $20 and a note to the wallet before returning it to Christhian's school.  The note asks Christhian to pay it forward some day and do something nice for someone else.  Christhian plans to do just that.  returned wallet

Boston Strong Ducks
Apr. 14, 2014 4:51 am

Rubber ducks have helped cheer up children at Sandy Hook and now they're being used to help people remember and "pay it forward" in honor of the Boston Marathon tragedy.  Lori Tosches loved to cheer on the runners from the starting line of the marathon.  But after the bombings, she wanted to do more.  She started a facebook page and scattered ducks around the start line with the page address on them. 

That started a series of random acts of kindness all over the world.  She started out by footing the bill for the ducks but now charges $5 each with part of the money going to the Boston victims.  Recipients of the ducks have been sending pictures to show how they have paid it forward with the Boston Strong Ducks.  On April 20, 2014, Lori will once again be at the starting line with ducks in tow.  Boston Strong Ducks

cloned pooch
Apr. 13, 2014 7:43 am

There's a place in South Korea that will clone your pet for a mere $100,000.  A contest in the UK gave one lucky person the chance to make that happen at no charge.  Rebecca Smith won and got a tiny replica of her beloved wiener pooch, Winnie.  Mini Winnie was born on March 30.  Winnie


Corvettes
Apr. 12, 2014 7:38 am

All 8 of the Corvettes that plunged into a sinkhole have been rescued.  Workers could see that the damage to each car got worse as they pulled them out.  The final car looks like a pile of thin aluminum.  General Motors has vowed to restore each of the cars but this last one is going to take a lot more work.  Corvettes


Archie
Apr. 11, 2014 5:10 am

This summer, comic book fans will say goodbye to Archie.  The comic books won't be done--just the character.  Archie will die saving a friend.  The episode isn't even out yet and fans are screaming "NOOOOO."  Archie dies


Rascal Flatts
Apr. 10, 2014 5:06 am

Rascal Flatts admits to lip-synching at the ACM Awards and they apologized for it immediately.  Gary LeVox, lead singer, lost his voice before the telecast and couldn't back out so this is what they came up with.  But apparently they weren't very good at it.  They claim they won't be doing that again.  lip-synching


hot wedding
Apr. 9, 2014 5:18 am

A couple was married and then everything got hot.  They had just said "I do" and were heading out of the venue when the the justice of the peace noticed smoke and an odd smell.  The building was on fire.  Luckily everyone got out safely.  The building didn't fare too well; it will have to be demolished.  That's definitely a hot start to their life together.  hot end to wedding


best April Fool's joke
Apr. 8, 2014 7:14 am

A Professor had a rule that if a phone rang in class, it had to be answered on speaker.  The class decided to pull a prank on the professor by having a phone ring and on the other end would be a man claiming to be from a pregnancy center confirming that the girl's pregnancy test is positive.  The girl said that she already knew what she was going to name the baby...first name "April" and middle name "Fools." He did end up laughing along with the class when the joke was revealed but he has since changed his policy. April Fools joke 


E-cigarettes
Apr. 7, 2014 8:20 am

E-cigarettes are becoming popular as an alternative to smoking.  While I applaud anything that will get people to stop smoking, I'm not real sure that this is the answer.  I have found that the vapor still affects my asthma so I can't be near anyone smoking an e-cigarette.  Now the CDC says that there are increases in the number of calls coming in about nicotine poisoning from the nicotine liquid.  Even children are getting into the stuff.  A person can start to feel sick within minutes of being exposed to the liquid.  e-cigs


Cat sleeps in couch
Apr. 6, 2014 2:07 pm

The owners of the cat and the couch didn't realize that the cat had crawled in to take a nap.  They partially dismantled the couch and donated it to a London thrift store.  It was purchased and taken home.  The new owners heard a meow coming from inside the couch and did the only thing they could to save the cat--tore apart their couch.  The cat spent 5 days trapped in the couch and has been returned to it's owner.  trapped cat
