  • Local Boy Scout gives back to rescue shelterLocal Boy Scout gives back to rescue shelter

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- It was for his Eagle Scout project, but Carson Mades decided he would do something for the four-legged variety. "My mother would really like to see dogs around Huntsville get adopted that don't have homes, and so this project would encourage more people to adopt pets from a shelter," he explained. Carson, with some help from the other Boy Scouts of Troop 364, got together and constructed ten raised dog beds to donate to A New Leash On Life. "I hope that the dog beds will improve the sanitary conditions because they're easier to clean, and the dogs will have more comfort. So that will make their stay here more enjoyable," he explained. Donations for the non-profit are always appreciated, but especially around the holidays. A New Leash On Life rescues hundreds of dogs from all across North Alabama. "Every little bit that comes in helps to serve those dogs, dog food, dog beds. You know things that we aren't normally able to afford," explained Wendy Brightwell. The mother of an Eagle Scout herself, Brightwell said this particular donation is a special treat. "We are very fortunate in that we have quite a few people that come up to us and say, what can we do for you.  So when the Boy Scouts step up to do things like this it feels really good." For more information on A New Leash On Life, their adoptable animals, and how you can help out, you can visit their website here.

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) An Alabama sheriff says two bodies found over the weekend in a rural area are believed to be an Atlanta-based rapper and his cousin, a music promoter. Both had been missing for several days. Rapper Edward Reeves, known as Bambino Gold; and Kendrick Stokes, known as Skooly Kee Da Tooly, were reported missing Nov. 7. The Montgomery Advertiser reports that the bodies were found in separate locations in Macon County, in eastern Alabama. Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson tells Al.com that both men were homicide victims, and that the bodies were found not far from roadways about three to four miles apart. Brunson said that a passer-by discovered the first body Friday evening. A deputy discovered the second body during a search of the area before dawn Saturday.

  • AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young dies at 64AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young dies at 64

    Watch Video (CNN) — AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young has died after battling dementia for several years, the band announced Saturday. He was 64. Young died at home with his family at this bedside, the band said in a statement. Young, along with his brother Angus, founded the legendary rock band in 1975 in Australia. “Renowned for his musical prowess Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many,” the statement said. “From the outset, he knew what he wanted to achieve and, along with his younger brother, took to the world stage giving their all at every show. Nothing less would do for their fans.” Young played rhythm guitar to Angus’ lead, and his driving riffs and mop-top hair were signatures of the band’s sound and image for decades. Angus Young, in a separate statement added that Malcolm took “great pride in all that he endeavored.” “His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed,” he wrote. “As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever.” Young left AC/DC in 2014 after the band said he had been struggling with an undisclosed ailment, later revealed to be dementia. He was replaced by his nephew, Stevie Young, for the band’s world tour in 2015. “He was older than me — I always looked up to him,” Angus Young said of his brother in an interview last year with Rolling Stone Magazine, saying he was “always one to battle through.” “He would look at me in times of crisis and go, ‘We’ll just go in and do some work. We’ll sit and write some songs,'” he said. “He had that drive, and I feel obligated to keep it going, maybe because I was there in the beginning with him.” Rock and roll royalty AC/DC was inducted in 2003 into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which described its sound as “scorched-earth, metallic hard rock which has rarely deviated from a template of headbanging-inducing guitar riffs, flashy drums and banshee-yell vocals.” “In the process, AC/DC have carved out a niche somewhere between hard rock and heavy metal that’s been an inspiration to aspiring musicians — and given us crank-up-the-volume radio staples ‘Back In Black,’ ‘Highway to Hell’ and ‘You Shook Me All Night Long,'” the hall of fame notes on its website. The band is also one of the best-selling in music history, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, having sold more than 70 million albums in the US. The band’s original lead singer, Bon Scott, died in 1980. He was replaced by Brian Johnson. Young’s fellow musicians, as well as rock n’ roll fans, voiced their condolences Saturday on Twitter. “RIP Malcolm Young,” wrote singer-songwriter Ryan Adams. “He was the founding member of AC/DC & the engine that roared behind the most powerful band in the world.” Guitarist Eddie Van Halen said “it is a sad day in rock and roll.” AC/DC plans to create a memorial website at which fans can send messages to Malcolm Young’s survivors, including his wife, O’Linda; children, Cara and Ross; son-in-law, Josh; three grandchildren; and his sister and brother. The family asked that in lieu of flowers, fans donate to The Salvation Army.

  • Japanese rail company sincerely apologizes after train leaves 20 seconds earlyJapanese rail company sincerely apologizes after train leaves 20 seconds early

    TOKYO – The Tsukuba Express was scheduled to depart Tokyo for Tsukuba at 9:44:40. Instead, it left at 9:44:20. If you’re thinking, “the horror!” then you’ll be glad to hear that management for the Japanese rail company has formally apologized for the train’s 20-seconds-early departure. “The crew did not sufficiently check the departure time and performed the departure operation,” it said in an official statement and “sincere” apology that led to bemusement on the internet. “I once had an Israeli bus driver laugh at me after he closed the door on my hips and drove off with my legs hanging out of the bus. I am so envious of Japan right now,” one person tweeted. The BBC reports that it’s “rare” for trains in Japan to be off-schedule, and another tweet highlights that fact, noting, “Have been on a train in Japan where I heard an apology for the train running one minute late.” The statement notes that there were no official customer complaints lodged about the early departure from a station just north of Tokyo, but apologizes if any customers missed the train by 20 seconds and were forced to wait for the next one—four minutes later, reports Bloomberg. Yahoo News UK notes that Japan’s trains are “among the most reliable in the world,” offering a mournful comparison to Britain, where “commuters are only too acquainted with the daily frustration of late trains on the way to work.” And the New York Daily News notes things aren’t much better in that newspaper’s fair city, where subway delays collectively add up to 34,900 hours on the average weekday. The Japanese company’s apology “is exactly what Japan is about,” sums up one Twitter user.

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- The "Shop Alabama for the Holidays" statewide tour came to Huntsville on Friday. The effort encourages shoppers to spend their holiday dollars right here at home. "We're here encouraging people to shop Alabama," said Melissa Warnke, the Manager of Communications and Engagement at The Alabama Retail Association. "To support our wonderful retailers who make our community a vibrant place," she added. The Alabama Retail Association celebrated the start of the campaign in Huntsville at Harrison Brothers Hardware.

  • Women for Moore speak out at campaign event in support of the Republican Senate Candidate despite sexual misconduct allegationsWomen for Moore speak out at campaign event in support of the Republican Senate Candidate despite sexual misconduct allegations

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - 30 women stood on the steps of the Capitol in Montgomery. Seven women spoke of their personal relationships with Roy Moore, all of which they claim were respectful and professional. They say they don`t recognize the man being portrayed in the national spotlight- and want to set the record straight. "This is a he said, she said situation, some of which are 40 years old that cannot be proven or dis-proven in the time remaining before the election," says Anne Eubank, Moore Supporter. The women; some former colleagues, church members, even family friends all believe the allegations made against Moore were false. "I truly believe truth will come out, and will show Moore is being falsely accused just like Joseph in the Bible," said Gina Boggs, on behalf of Suzelle Josie. "I have found his character to be only one thing: and that is Godly." Supporter Janet Porter says what is happening to Moore is a sure sign of hypocrisy especially with Minnesota Democratic Senator Al Franken facing accusations of sexual harassment. "Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, they`re not calling for him to step down," said Porter. Some say the target on Moore`s back is because he is feared by the GOP. "We have a candidate that has walked through the fire, not just in this election cycle but over the years as he`s campaigned, for statewide races for the Supreme Court of Alabama, twice! And none of this has come out. Ladies and Gentlemen you`re looking at Mitch McConnell`s playbook for the next several years. If there is a candidate he cannot control this is what will happen," said Amy Kramer. At the end of the news conference, a reporter asked the women if any of them knew Moore during the time period of the alleged allegations against him. "Not that we`re aware of," reporters were told. Since the allegations surfaced two weeks ago Moore says the emails and messages have been overwhelming. "For the record, it`s about 90% positive, with the negative being out of state," Moore continued to say, "To the people of Alabama, thank you for being smarter than they think you are." She took aim again at the media, specifically the publication that broke the initial story. "The Washington Post has called everyone I have ever known for the last 40 years. They have called everyone my husband has ever known for the last 40 years," Moore accused. Moore claims The Washington Post,  Human Rights Campaign, the DNC and the Washington Establishment targeted President Trump's campaign and have recently been "going after" the Moores. She says this has created a D.C. distraction. "Have you noticed anyone talking about Russia? I`d say to the President now is the time to get some things done in Congress," said Moore. Moore says no matter what anyone says about them they plan to fight. "So let me set the record straight. Even after all of the attacks against me, against my family, against the foundation and now against my husband. He will not step down."

  • Alabama’s Secretary of State: “Crossover Voters will not be prosecuted”Alabama’s Secretary of State: “Crossover Voters will not be prosecuted”

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- For months now we have been wondering what will happen to the 674 people identified by the Alabama Secretary of State's office as potential crossover voters. Friday afternoon, we finally got the answer. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill has confirmed that none of those voters will be prosecuted. Over 600 voters were accused of illegally attempting to vote in the Republican Senate runoff on September 26 after casting ballots in the Democratic Senate primary on August 15. “Those individuals will be investigated, indicted, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Merrill told WHNT News 19 one day after the runoff between Luther Strange and Roy Moore. Merrill still maintains that message on crossover voting but with an additional caveat. He says, "If it is indeed necessary, we are going to recommend prosecution, and we are so thankful this was not the case in this instance.” The Secretary of State said that after consulting with all 40 probate judges in the counties affected by crossover voting, none of them recommended further action. “They indicated to us that was not warranted and not necessary and we're very excited to hear that news," says Merrill. Merrill still considers this exercise a success even if it is just to set an example. “That’s why it’s so important to keep the names of the people who were actually identified as crossover voters,” he emphasized. Madison Democratic Chairman, Tom Ryan, has been one of Merrill's harshest critics. “I guess I’ll have to throw away that plaque that says 'Secretary of Voter Suppression' that I had all made up for Secretary Merrill, but who knows, it may come back,” Ryan said. Ryan's concern is not with the concept of the law itself. in fact, he suggests it should go a step forward and require all voters to declare their party affiliation. “Independents shouldn’t be allowed to vote in a Republican Primary or a Democratic Primary," Ryan added. Ryan says it is the penalty that he's against. Even though the law doesn't include a punishment clause, Merrill's office says it should fall under felony election fraud. “Class C felony up to 10 years is way overkill,” Ryan remarked. Ryan is hopeful the Alabama Legislature will amend the crossover voting law to lessen the penalty. Merrill has said many times that he will whole-heartedly execute any law the legislature passes into law.

  • Governor Kay Ivey says she still intends to vote for Roy MooreGovernor Kay Ivey says she still intends to vote for Roy Moore

    (CNN) -- Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said Friday she plans to vote for Republican Roy Moore in the state's Senate special election on December 12. Speaking with reporters in Alabama, Ivey said she has "no reason to disbelieve" the women who have accused Moore of sexual abuse. "I certainly have no reason to disbelieve any of them. The timing is a little curious, but at the same time, I have no reason to disbelieve them," Ivey said. Still, she said, she'll vote for Moore. "I will cast my ballot on December the 12, and I do believe that the nominee of the party is the one I'll vote for," Ivey said. "I believe in the Republican Party and what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions," Ivey said. "And so that's what I plan to do, is vote for the Republican nominee, Roy Moore." Asked if she is proud to vote for Moore, Ivey didn't directly address the twice-ousted former state Supreme Court chief justice. "Every Alabamian has a right and duty to vote -- to determine who their US Senate person's going to be from Alabama. And yes, I'm proud to vote and hope every Alabamian will be proud to cast their vote," Ivey said. Her answer comes a day after she dodged CNN's questions at the Republican Governors' Association meeting in Austin, Texas, about whether she still intends to vote for Moore. There, she would only commit to keeping the special election date on December 12, despite national Republicans' efforts to find a way to move the election or get Moore off the ballot. "The election will be December the 12, and I will cast my ballot," she said.
