Looking for a home: Jimmy, an adorable Lab mix/border collie, is two years old. He is a smart guy and needs a buddy who will take the time to get to know him. Jimmy is a shy guy and likes slower movement. We suspect he was abused at one time. He is very sweet and has adjusted to routines very well. If you need a walking partner, look no further; Jimmy is waiting to stroll with you.

Nevada officials are pressing toward the state's first execution in 11 years, naming the state's top psychiatrist as interim replacement for the anesthesiologist who resigned last week after signing off on a lethal injection plan. Jordan Smith, of the state attorney general's office, told a judge Monday, Nov. 6, 2017, in Las Vegas that Dr. Leon Ravin has replaced Dr. John DiMuro as the state's top doctor. That makes Ravin the medical official with primary responsibility for next week's scheduled execution of twice-convicted murderer Dozier. (AP Photo/Ken Ritter, File)

The tattoo reads “I’m Alive” with a ribbon to honor Nevada Army National Guard 1st Sgt. Charleston Hartfield, who died in the shooting. Her best friend, Joanna Lovejoy, who Janoss said took a bullet for her, will get a similar tattoo next to her gunshot wound on her knee after her wound heals. Janoss was one of thousands in attendance at the concert. Fifty-eight people were killed when Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay before killing himself.
