Got Your Ticket? - 06/18/14

  Fox 17 is giving away this year's St. Jude Dream Home to some lucky winner live on the air Sunday night.  There are still tickets available.  We're hoping they don't last long. 
  This is the tenth year for the Dream Home campaign in Nashville and thank to so many of you, Nashville is the number one campaign in the country having raised more than 13-million dollars to date.  By Sunday night we hope to drive that number to about 14-point-5-million dollars.
  It takes nearly 2-million dollars a day to keep St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in operation.  The amazing thing is families never get a bill.  St. Jude does the work, you and your child focus on getting better.
  This hospital does amazing research and then gives the information to any hospital in the world free of charge to help children.  I believe they are doing God's work.  $100 dollars will buy your ticket.  The easiest way is to go to www.dreamhome.org and buy yours.  I'll join Stacy Case and Erika Kurre in the live broadcast Sunday night.  I hope you can help and watch the show.

POLICE CHIEF DELIVERS OWN BABY

DENVER (AP) -- Police officers have been known to deliver babies in the line of duty. But in this case, a Colorado police chief delivered a baby in the role of both police chief and father. The Denver Post reports Eagle, Colorado police chief Joey Staufer was able to help bring his own daughter into the world -- after dialing 911 for help from a highway off-ramp. A dispatcher on the other end walked the chief through the process. Eventually, emergency responders arrived and took mom and daughter to the hospital. The newborn is doing well.

BIG BEN - TARDY

LONDON (AP) -- Chicago had a hit decades ago with the song "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is." That's Chicago, the band, not the city. Now it appears London may be asking the same question. That's London, the city. Seems that when Brits cast an eye toward Big Ben for the correct time, the big clock may be leading them wrong. People who keep track of such things report the famous clock at Britain's Parliament building has recently been off. Not by a lot though -- an estimated six seconds. Not enough to blame for a late arrival, but enough for people to take notice.

SNAKES HEADED TO VT. SANCTUARY

NORTH CLARENDON, Vt. (AP) -- Snakes on a sanctuary? It's true -- but it's hardly worthy of a Hollywood movie. Two giant snakes have been rescued by a Vermont man and turned over to game wardens. The slithery creatures are now going to be spending their days at a snake sanctuary in Massachusetts. The snakes are reticulated pythons -- and the largest of the two is between 17 and 18 feet long -- and weighs about 220 pounds. The "runt" of the two is "just" 15 feet long, and tips the scales at "only" 150 pounds. The Vermont snake collector says he got the reptiles from a New York man who decided he couldn't keep them. And since the Vermont men didn't have the permits to keep them, he contacted state game officials.
