Good Morning East Tennessee!

Lately the news has been the same old bad news so I thought I'd let you know that ...

In Jacksonville a 9 year old girl got 4 toddlers and a month-old-baby out of a burning building.

In New York a woman was getting her hair done at a local salon when someone decided to rob the salon at gun point. The woman getting her hair done was Feris Jones (a New York Police Officer with an incredible aim.) Feris shot the gun out of the robber's hand, stopped the attempted robbery, and the suspect was arrested.

Gold mining is still big business in the US. Last year $1 billion worth of gold was pulled out of one Nevada mine.

A woman in Detroit started a charity making dresses from pillow cases for little girls. The result was: 100,000 dresses (all hand made) pouring in from all 50 states.

Have a great day!
