Tim McGraw Amazes a Military Family..gives a house!

courtesy WTSP Tampa, Florida -- It'll be a big concert Saturday night at Raymond James Stadium, as country stars Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw perform together. But first McGraw wanted to give back: he's helping give away 25 mortgage-free homes on every stop of his tour to wounded veterans. We spoke to the family whose lives are now changed forever. "I had a crush injury to my face, my left eye socket, third degree burns on my hands, two collapsed lungs, traumatic brain injury, bi-polar disorder..." Domenic DeLucia is describing the sacrifice to his country after a roadside bomb blew apart his Humvee while deployed in Iraq. Once back in the U.S., his disability made supporting his family difficult. Things were tough, so his wife Christina took a shot at a miracle. "I found out about the program through the Wounded Warrior Wives on Facebook and said they were giving away one thousand mortgage-free homes." Christina applied to Operation Homefront and was shocked when she got the call that the DeLucia family was being given a mortgage-free home in Orlando, sponsored by Chase Bank. It's the bank's way to give back to the men and women who have fought for their country, but there was an added twist: country music superstar Tim McGraw was part of the program. "For a soldier to come home and have a home mortgage free, a place where he can have his family, a place that's safe and he can go out a look for a job and have a home is a great thing," McGraw explains. The big surprise for the Delucia family is that McGraw will completely furnish their new Orlando house. Now, the family can breathe a little easier, and new memories can begin. "It's like winning the lottery, it really is," Domenic says. He has four children and this will give them all a better life. Not only is Domenic amazed by the help, he has always been a huge Tim McGraw fan.

Funeral Arrangements Set For Craig Morgan's Son Jerry

Jerry Michael Hardy Greer is the son of Craig and Karen Greer. He was 19 years old on the day of his going home. Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room. He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve. He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words, and in our hearts.

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

They call her..The Bare Naked Bandit..29 yr Old Lee Grace Doherty

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
