Country singer-musician Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood made a special dream come true in October for a girl with spina bifida. Before a concert they spent one-on-one time with Nicole Small, who calls Brooks her “life long idol”.

“I was so surprised about how long I was allowed to spend with him,” she wrote on SharedAbilities.com. “I just thought it would be something along the lines of saying hi, getting a picture and maybe an autograph.”

”Yes, all of those took place, but on a personal level! He really got to know me and I shared with him my two favorite songs that are sung by him.” Halfway through the show, the singer announced, “This next song is for a powerful girl name

A UK conservationist who raised a pair of Western lowland gorillas in Kent, England went looking for them eleven years after they were reintroduced into the wild of Gabon, West Africa. He wondered if the pair would recognize him or his daughter, Tansy, who was just a child when she last played with the animals.

For the past 15 years the Aspinall foundation has been reintroducing captive gorillas back into the wild on their million acres of jungle in West Africa. But would these now-wild gorillas recognize Damian Aspinall or the girl who had grown up?

Damian and Tansy were thrilled when, after many hours of calling out to Djalta and Bimms from a boat on the river, they both appeared and

Two bodies believed to belong to Miss Honduras 2014 and her sister have been found buried near the spa where they disappeared six days ago, the Honduras National Police director said Wednesday.

Sabillon said Sofia's boyfriend, Plutarco Ruiz, confessed to killing the sisters and led authorities to the bodies buried in a river bank in a mountainous area of Santa Barbara, about 240 miles (400 kilometers) west of Tegucigalpa.

According to Police Director Ramon Sabillion, a heated argument occurred on November 13 between Ruiz and Trinidad. Police say that Ruiz pulled out a gun, firing first at his girlfriend and then at Alvarado as she ran away, hitting her twice in the back.

This feline was overlooked because of his unusual appearance, but now he's in a happy home with a family that finds his quirky features all the more lovable.

Monty, a rescue cat from Copenhagen, Denmark, was born with chromosomal abnormalities that resulted in the absence of a nasal bridge. Because of his nontraditional face, the feline spent a long time living at an animal shelter, and wasn't considered by many prospective pet owners until August of last year when Mikala Fuglesang, 30, spotted the cat on the shelter website, and showed the animal to her boyfriend, Michael Bjørn.

In Texas last month, emergency responders witnessed the touching animal loyalty that perhaps only a dog can exemplify.

A Mason County ambulance was transporting an 85-year-old rancher to the hospital, when 20 miles into their journey EMS technician Tanner Brown said a driver flagged them down and told them there was a dog hanging onto the side of the vehicle.

The San Angelo Times reports that Buddy, a small Beagle mix, had “hitched a ride on the small side step of the ambulance to be with his owner, JR Nicholson.”

A 2-year-old girl who went missing last week has been found, and though she's a bit dirty from playing outside, she's otherwise unscathed.

Officers found Brooklyn Lynn Lilly in the woods just after noon Thursday, nearly 24 hours after her family reported her missing. Brooklyn was last seen playing outside her home in Tawas City, Michigan, before she disappeared the day before.

After a cold night with no leads, a K-9 unit came across Brooklyn the next day, reports WJBK, and she was in surprisingly high spirits.

"It was a rough night, but the moment that she was found was something special," Jeffery Seyfried, assistant fire chief for the Tawas City Fire Department, recalled to MLive.

One unexpected phone call helped get this man's furry friend back.

More than seven years ago, Mike Nuanes' Shih Tzu puppy Jordan went missing. The dog disappeared from Nuanes' Denver, Colorado, home, and he did not expect to see the pooch again, but last month Nuanes' girlfriend answered a call from the Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta saying they had found the pup, according to KUSA.

Chadwick Banks, 43, is scheduled to die at 6 p.m. at Florida State Prison in Starke for the 1992 slaying of Melody Cooper, who was found on her knees naked from the waist down and her body slumped on her bed at a Gadsden County home. The body of her mother, Cassandra Banks, was nearby.

Banks, who was 21 at the time, is serving a life sentence for his wife's murder. It would be the 20th execution carried out since Gov. Rick Scott took office in 2011, one fewer than under Jeb Bush, who presided over the most executions since capital punishment was reinstated in the state in 1979. Bush was governor for two terms, while Scott, who was re-elected last week, is finishing his first.

AUGUSTA, Maine —The state medical examiner's office says a 15-year-old from Glenburn died last month of "asphyxia due to compression of the neck".

Kyle Dube, 20, of Orono, has been charged with the murder of Nichole Cable.

Her body was found in a wooded area in Glenburn on May 20 after she was reported missing on May 12.

Detective Thomas Pickering of the state police said in an affidavit that Dube pretended to be another person on Facebook to contact Cable and she agreed to meet with him on May 12 to get marijuana. He jumped out of bushes and put duct tape on her before loading her in his father's pickup truck.

But when he took her from the truck, she was dead, the affidavit said

NEWBERG, Oregon - On July 26th, 1947, downtown Newberg, Oregon was alive with people running around enjoying a hometown parade, waiting for the next colorful float to pass.

It was Saturday and Elizabeth McBroom enjoyed the crowd as she strolled down First street where a Pearl Lager Beer clock declared a quarter after 2. The thermometer outside Dr. Bump's office next to the Francis theater had climbed to 86 degrees.

Hundreds watched as float riders laughed and children shouted, excitement thick as pantry molasses. It was a good day, a good time. The war had ended two years ago and Newberg had settled back to its prewar days of community fun and tradition.

Elizabeth stopped to look
