    Guns Within Reach

    On January 21, a tragic shooting of a young innocent child occurred. A 5-year-old Missouri boy shot and killed his 9-month-old baby brother in the morning after grabbing a gun from a shelf built into the headboard of a bed in his grandfather’s home.
    According to a press release from the Nodaway County Sheriff’s office, the baby was reportedly shot in the head in what appears to be an accidental shooting.  The 5 year old claimed that the gun was just lying out and that he was just playing around.

    Watch the Snow!

    Pennsylvania is one of the top states to get a great amount of snow. As every driver knows, snow can be extremely dangerous to drive in. On January 7th, 2015, there was an 18-car pileup on Interstate 80 near Clarion, PA. The awful snowstorm left drivers with little visibility. This car pileup led to two deaths and at least a dozen injured; there were nine trucks, several tractor-trailers, and nine cars involved in this chain-reaction car accident.
    Clarion County Coroner, Terry Schaffer, said “It was carnage, there was metal everywhere. There were bustled axles, trucks totaled. One tanker truck didn’t have any wheels on it.” The two people, whose names were not released, that died actually…

    Trials for Ebola Vaccine

    Oxford University scientists have started trials for an Ebola vaccine. The first seventy-two volunteers,who are healthy individuals, have received the initial dose of this new vaccine. Researchers are hoping that receiving this medicine will stop Ebola in its tracks. Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies have developed the vaccine with Bavarian Nordic. Starting May, the company will make two million vaccinations and start large scale trials later this year.

Johnson and Johnson, the company that owns Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies, has now started two more experimental drugs. These medicines will also prevent Ebola from…

    Dog Photos for Anthony

    A 16-year-old boy named Anthony Lyons was diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is undergoing chemotherapy at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
