Groby Pedroni was among 40 dogs rescued from a hoarder in Southern California

It was just another day in a quiet Los Angeles suburb when a horrifying discovery was made.  One of the neighbors had just lost her house. The interior was absolutely destroyed and smelled of filth and decay. Among the wreckage were 40 dogs, sick, unkempt, and fearful.  One of those unfortunate puppies is Groby Pedroni, born without front legs.  He is a pretty special dog, very good with children, and since being rescued, Groby has been outfitted with his own set of wheels!

123 year old man tells his secrets of longevity

123-year-old Carmelo Flores, a Bolivian indigenous farmer, attributes his longevity to quinoa grains, riverside mushrooms and around-the-clock chewing of coca leaves.   He lives in Frasquia, a 4,000-meter high hamlet, and takes daily walks in shoes made of recycled tires, but spends most of his time laying on a blanket outside his straw-roofed hut, watching village life go by.  There are plans to award him the title of "Living Heritage of Humanity" on August 26.

Student sinks half court shot to win free tuition

With College tuition going up every year, any kind of financial support is greatly appreciated.  Ball State University offers one Freshman every year a chance to win free tuition for their first year…The only catch is that they have to make a near-impossible half-court basketball shot!  The University has been doing this for a few years now, but nobody has successfully made the shot.  Markus Burden now has 11,084 (which is how much his tuition is) reasons to be excited now after he became the first student to sink the half-court shot!  An emotional Burton called his mother to tell her the exciting news, as she was equally pleased.  The whole crowd went crazy when he sunk the shot…take a look! J

 

 

Have a great day, and let the good news be yours,

Make-A-Wish helps 8 year old becomes NFL Coach for a day

Cam Newton, quarterback for the Carolina Panthers asked for his coaches autograph after practice on August 6th.  Coach Jack Bolton got the chance to be the Carolina Panthers honorary coach for the day.  I forgot to mention…Coach Jack Bolton is only 8-years-old! 

 

Jack Bolton has spinal muscular atrophy, but that’s never deterred him from having the dream to be an NFL coach.  On this day, through the Make-A-Wish foundation, Coach Jack finally got his opportunity to be on the sidelines of an NFL team. 

 

 

Steve Smith, the Panthers wide receiver even went over to the 8-year-old coach and asked him if he could get the quarterbacks to throw more passes his way!   The star coach even had a touching speech that he read to the team before practice started.  He let the team know that he’d be “looking for mistakes when I’m on the field watching you guys”! 

 

Hopefully the Panthers listen to Coach Bolton’s advice and use it towards winning some games this year!

 

 

Have a great day, and let the good news be yours,

Jeremy
