Hugh Grant offering reward for WWII vet's lost medals

Actor Hugh Grant is offering a $1,100 reward for the return of a blind British World War II veterans medals after the 95-year-old man lost them at a service station.

>> Read more trending news

D-Day veteran Alfred Barlow landed on Sword Beach on June 6, 1944. Barlow, who was a corporal when Allied forces attacked the French coast, attended this year’s Memorial in Normandy, the Manchester Evening News reported.

However, Barlow lost his medals at the service station near Walsall during his return to his home in Stockport on June 8.

Barlow released images of the lost medals -- the 1939-1945 Star, the France and Germany Star, the 1939-1945 War Medal and the Palestine Medal -- through the Blind Veterans UK charity.

Grant tweeted his support, including a contact number and said that anonymity would be guaranteed, the Evening News reported.

Barlow said the incident was “very distressing.”

“These medals are worth very little to sell but to me they are priceless,” he told the Evening News. “I had intended to pass all of my medals on to my grandson, which makes it even more upsetting.”

Barlow turns 96 on Sunday and said the medals’ return would be a great birthday gift, Fox News reported.

'Flower man' steals the show at Wisconsin wedding

Traditional weddings usually include a flower girl and a ring bearer. But nuptials last week in Wisconsin included a flower man -- and he did his job so well, he nearly stole the attention from the bride.

>> Read more trending news

Andria Farthing got married in Madison on June 17. For her flower girl, she chose her 28-year-old cousin, Patrick Casey. The two relatives were close as children and once served as flower girl and ring bearer at a  1994 wedding, the Huffington Post reported.

When Farthing chose members of the wedding party, she chose Casey to toss the flower petals. And Casey did not disappoint, using the same flower basket his cousin used at that wedding 23 years ago. Casey then walked down the aisle at the outdoor ceremony and then stopped to pull petals out of his pocket, which he scattered gracefully amid laughter.

“A good marriage includes a lot of laughing,” Casey told the Huffington Post. “So what’s wrong with a bit of fun at your wedding with someone you both love and who loves you both?

“I think there was some skepticism, but after, many people complimented me on being funny while not crossing the line.”

2 arrested in 30-person brawl after N.Y. high school graduation

A high school graduation ceremony in upstate New York ended with a brawl that injured one police officer and led to the arrest of two teenagers, the Albany Times Union reported.

The brawl outside Watervliet High School in suburban Albany on Thursday night required four police agencies to respond before it was under control, police said.

Police arrested 18-year-old Damion M. Walker and an unidentified teen boy, the Times Union reported. Both are charged with misdemeanor obstructing governmental administration.

Watervliet Police Chief Mark Spain told the Times Union that authorities "have no idea" what sparked the fight,  which involved more than 30 people brawling in the parking lot.

Nebraska mom begs thieves to return Porsche tires used for memorial

A Nebraska woman is making an appeal to thieves who stole the Porsche tires she had built as a memorial to her late son.

>> Read more trending news

Angel Pike and her son Ben built the memorial in April to honor Mike Pike, who died in his sleep four years ago, KETV reported. 

The stone in Pike’s front yard in Omaha reads “Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.”

The chain reference is ironic since all that is left of the memorial are the chains that connected the tires, Pike told KETV.

The memorial is even more poignant now since Ben drowned earlier this month in nearby Lake Cunningham.

“I miss my boys so much and I just feel like our little chain is broken,” Angel Pike told KETV.  “We built this memorial and we had (Mike’s) Porsche rims and tires around two that didn’t have any (rims), and so I planted plants in here.”

The memorial became a sanctuary, but that was shattered one week after Ben’s death after thieves struck.

“I was just numb,” Angel Pike said. “I just yelled and said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’ you know. You take one son, then you took my other son and now you took my memorial.”

Pike filed a report with Omaha police, but she said she would simply like the tires returned, no questions asked.

“I just want my memorial back so I can build on it for Ben, too,” she told KETV. “Just bring my memorial back.”

Human toe stolen from Yukon bar returned, with apology

There’s good news afoot -- the toe stolen from the Downtown Hotel Sourdough Saloon in the Yukon has been returned to its rightful owner, along with a letter of apology.

>> Read more trending news

“We’re happy as clams about it,” Sue Taylor told the Alaska Dispatch News.Taylor is a “toe captain” at the bar in Dawson City.

The mummified human toe that disappeared early Sunday is used as a bizarre garnish for the saloon’s signature drink, the Sourtoe Cocktail.

In a news release, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said it quickly zeroed in a suspect and tried to contact him. But on Tuesday, the alleged subject telephoned the RCMP office in Dawson City and told authorities he had mailed the toe to the hotel. It was received Thursday.

“Located inside the package was an apology letter, as well as the stolen toe,” the RCMP statement said. “At the time that the package was opened, the toe was believed to be in good condition.”

The RCMP said charges were not expected to be filed.

That’s certainly toe-riffic news for the alleged thief.

Michael Jordan fan has crying LeBron James tattooed on leg

Kalen Gilleese concedes that LeBron James is one of pro basketball’s greatest players, but he still believes that the Cleveland Cavaliers’ star is not in the class of Hall of Famer Michael Jordan, his favorite player.

>> Read more trending news

So after the Cavs were beaten in the NBA Finals by the Golden State Warriors, Gilleese, who already sports a body full of tattoos, added a crying LeBron James face to his right calf.

“I think LeBron is in the top five of all time, but he’s not Jordan,” the Salt Lake City resident told ESPN. “I just get ticked off by everyone saying that. And I absolutely hate how LeBron flops.”

Gilleese said he bugged his friend, tattoo artist Preston Schooley, to do the tattoo for the last two months.

“After the Warriors won, I convinced him to do it on me,” Gilleese told ESPN.

“He likes to be a troll, and this does the trick,” Schooley told ESPN.

Gilleese said that whether people like or despise James, they are impressed by Schooley’s intricate work.

“I’ve heard from a lot of people that have seen it,” Gilleese told ESPN. “No matter what they think, they end by appreciating how well done it is.”

TV crew's SUV stolen while they filmed story about crime

A television news crew in New Mexico, gathering footage for a story about crime, became part of the story Friday when a thief stole the station’s SUV, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

>> Read more trending news

KOB news director Michelle Donaldson said her crew was filming in downtown Albuquerque and watched as the vehicle was stolen. The story the crew was shooting footage for was about recent concerns about crime and safety.

“I have a rule, that you can never be the lead of your own newscast, Donaldson said. “So this violates that rule.”

The news crew recovered the SUV within a half hour without help from police by following the vehicle’s GPS tracking device, Donaldson told the Journal.

“We went to that location and recovered our own stolen vehicle,” she said.

Colorado fire department honors 5-year-old who saved mom’s life

A 5-year-old Colorado boy was made an honorary member of his local fire department Wednesday after he dialed 911 when his mother needed medical attention, the Journal-Advocate reported.

>> Read more trending news

Xander Carpenter was given a special tour of the Sterling Fire Department, was given his own special uniform for the inspection,  took a ride in Tower 18 and also helped put out a simulated fire with a hose, the newspaper reported. He also was named the department’s honorary firefighter for the month of July.

In May, Carpenter’s mother, Kari Nelson, returned home after working out at the gym, the Journal-Advocate reported. She then decided to mow the lawn, but the 38-year-old woman passed out from dehydration and low blood sugar.

Carpenter then grabbed his mother’s cell phone and dialed 911.

“It was impressive that Xander, being 5 years old, remembered to call 911 when he recognized that someone in his family needed help,” fire department Lt. Brett Dowis said.

Nelson was treated at the scene, and Dowis finished mowing the lawn, the Journal-Advocate reported.

California woman finds frog in her salad

A California woman found an unpleasant addition to her salad earlier this month, as she uncovered a dead frog nestled inside the lettuce.

>> Read more trending news

Shawna Cepeda was dining at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse in West Covina and noticed her salad had a bitter taste, according to a Yelp review she posted on June 13. She began stirring the salad and found the frog.

“I see something kind of rolled up. I was like, ‘this doesn’t look right,’ so I passed it to my husband,” Cepeda told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. “I asked, ‘Is that a piece of lettuce?’ Then he looked and daughter looked and he was like, ‘it’s a frickin’ frog.’”

Cepeda said she told the restaurant manager, who offered to pay for her meal but made the family pay for their drinks, KTLA reported.

“I just found a frog in my food from a place that doesn’t even carry frog and I still gotta pay for my drinks?” Cepeda wrote in her Yelp review.

Cepeda said she later received a $50 gift card from the restaurant’s corporate office.

An inspector from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health visited the restaurant on June 19 and found no health code violations, the Valley Tribune reported.

In an email  to the Valley Tribune on Thursday, Greg Levin, the chief financial officer for BJ’s said the company had launched an internal investigation to “ensure that nothing like this happens in the future.”

Cepeda updated her Yelp post on Thursday, writing that she still feels “really sick.”

“BJ’s has responded to my review and thank you,” she wrote. “But I’m disappointed that it took over a week to respond even after they had been responding to other reviews that were posted after mine.”

Second couple comes forward saying they were duped by wedding planner

More victims of a wedding planner accused of duping a bride out of thousands of dollars are coming forward with similar allegations.

Melissa and Nick’s wedding plans started with a bad feeling.

The couple did not want to give their last name.

"It was honestly a blessing from God that, like, I saw the red flags immediately at the tasting. I was like, ‘This is not going to work out,’” Melissa said.

The engaged couple hired Angel Jones with Angel's Dream Events to plan the most important day of their lives.

But the first time they met with Jones, Melissa said the wedding planner acted unprofessional by insulting the vendors and her choice of decorations.

"I left there crying,” Melissa said.

She fired Jones the day after hiring her, expecting to get back $1,000 they paid up front.

She said the contract they signed offered a refund up until 21 days before the wedding, but Melissa and Nick never saw that money again.

"I'm glad somebody finally spoke out," Melissa said.

She contacted Channel 9 after hearing the story about the Wilsons, who said Jones took $17,000 from them and left them with nothing three days before the event.

"I think we all probably would agree that we want her to go to jail,” said Melissa.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating.

The website and Facebook page for Angel's Dream Events were recently taken down, and her phone number was disconnected.

Photos show shocked mother after breaking 50-year family history of baby girls

A Columbus, Georgia, mother’s look of surprise after delivering her second child was caught on camera, and images of her expression are amusing the internet.

Today reported that Dara Crouch, and her husband, Eric, 30, chose to keep the gender of her newborn a secret. Already a mother to 3-year-old daughter Neyland, the labor and delivery nurse didn’t know until April 25 that she broke a 50-year family history of baby girls.

“I just knew I was having a girl,” Crouch, 29, told Today.com.

As it turns out, Crouch delivered a boy.

Her surprised reaction was caught by her friend and photographer Neely Ker-Fox. The images were posted on Ker-Fox’s Facebook page

“All of our reactions were genuine that she thought it was a girl,”  Ker-Fox told ABC News. “We all saw that very vulnerable moment and we started crying when we heard it was a boy.”

“I look kind of crazy in them, but I think they’re great," Crouch told ABC News. “We have something to look back on; had we not had a photographer in the room, we would've never seen that.”

The boy was a long time coming, according to Crouch, but that wasn’t why she was so surprised.

“The last boy that we know was born on my side of the family is 50 years ago, but quite honestly, it has little to do with the shock in the picture. I really just thought it was a girl, I really did. We already had a girl and I guess I kind of saw us as ‘girl parents.’”

Now 7 weeks old, Liam is “doing great,” Crouch says.

“He loves to eat and watch his big sister play … and he loves to smile at his daddy.”

Ker-Fox told CBS News that of the 100-plus births she’s photographed in six years, this one is extra special.

“Never have I had a mom look directly into my camera,” she said. “It was such an unexpected photo to grab for me. Her face was genuine shock, which melted into pure and instantaneous love for her son.”

Camerota asked Conway specifically what President Trump’s White House is doing to prevent Russian interference and hacking in American politics.

Each time Camerota asked a question, Conway did not respond directly.

Conway accused CNN of pushing a narrative before saying “you’ve asked me the same question three times now and I’m answering it.”

“Kellyanne, you’re not answering it,” Camerota shot back.

“He’s the president of the United States,” Conway said again of Trump.

“And what’s he doing?” Camerota asked again, still in search of an answer.

Camerota continued to press Conway for an answer.

“What action is the White House doing to stop Russian interference in elections?” Camerota asked again.

Conway answered again telling Camerota that Trump expressed “his resistance towards any type of outside interference.”

Murphy said she was out for the first time with her newborn daughter, 4-day-old Katherine, and was nervous.

Murphy said she brought her newborn inside with her to Market Basket and then returned to the car when Katherine fell asleep. She said that she ran back inside for two or three minutes to buy some baby formula.

“I went (in and) I bought it,” Murphy said. “(I) came right out and this lady just starts screaming at me.”

According to WFXT meteorologists, the outside temperature was 84 degrees at the time.

Murphy said she didn’t want to wake her newborn.

“I thought, ‘OK, if I run in and run out...’ It was one of those things where she's gotta eat because I have nothing left for her and that's when everything happened and I'm like, oh my God,” Murphy said.

Katherine was taken to the hospital to be checked out. Her mother said he is fine.

The baby is currently in custody of DCF. No charges have been filed.

The suspects drove away from the restaurant in a cream or tan Cadillac Escalade with tag number REU8495. Officials said they headed north on Highway 144.

WDRB reported that the act began with a regular visitor. ABC News reported that her meal was about $6.

“(The customer) saw a dad in the van behind her,” Hunter Hostetler, an employee at the McDonald’s location, told WDRB. “He had, like, four kids in the car. He had a bunch of happy meals, two Quarter Pounders, a Big Mac meal and some other stuff. She was like, ‘I'm going to pay for the father behind me, and I want you to tell him Happy Father's Day.’”

The father’s order was $36.

In turn, that father paid for the order in the two cars behind him, and from 8:30 to midnight, 167 cars total continued to pay it forward.

“It was very heartwarming,” Hostetler, 19, told ABC News. “The last customer who came through even asked if there was another car and I said, ‘Ma’am, I’m sorry, you’re our last customer for the night. We’re closing.’”

ABC News reported that some customers were a few dollars short when paying it forward, but Hostetler and his co-worker, Jessica Wells, chipped in to pay the difference.

Hostetler noted that many customers paid it forward without regard for the cost of the orders behind them.

Frank Ward, the owner of the McDonald’s location, responded to what he called an “act of kindness” with a statement to ABC News: “McDonald’s believes in supporting the local communities in which we operate. I was proud to experience the Scottsburg community come together in this act of kindness under the Golden Arches.”

FBI to police in Texas: Bigfoot is ‘most wanted fugitive’

Round Rock, Texas, Police Chief Allen Banks has received a special message from the Federal Bureau of Investigation: the Hairy Man seen galavanting around the Round Rock trails is a “most wanted fugitive.”

>> Read more trending news

According to the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, which has been keeping residents abreast of recent Bigfoot sightings, Round Rock’s top police official got an email from the FBI stating it has added Bigfoot to the “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” List.

The Bureau is offering a reward of up to $500,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of the giant, hair-covered being, according to the Parks and Rec Department.

Bigfoot was last seen on the Brushy Creek Regional Trail and made “loud, demonic-like howl sounds,” according to the FBI most-wanted poster.

Recently, some Round Rock teens and other area families have shared videos of their search for the enormous quadruped.

According to the recently released FBI poster, Bigfoot is a “menace to wildlife” and is accused of “destruction of government property” and “terrorism of campers.”

The creature is allegedly “armed and dangerous,” according to the FBI message received by police.

But is the Round Rock Hairy Man really that ferocious and ill-willed? So far, there has been no evidence of destruction or vandalism by the big man on the trails. Not even any food or sign of a campsite has been found. Just a few oversized footprints in the mud are the only evidence left behind by the beast.

The Hairy Man seems to be abiding by the “Leave No Trace” camping principles: respect wildlife, take out what you bring in, and leave what you find.

So is this creature Round Rock’s Hairy Man legend of yore come to life? Is it Bigfoot? Sasquatch? Or is it just Harry trying to find his Hendersons?
