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.

BABY JESUS-GPS

FRANKLIN, Ind. (AP) -- Baby Jesus is going high-tech. A statue of the Christ child is getting a GPS tracking device. New York-based BrickHouse Security is donating several GPS monitors to the Indiana Masonic Home in Franklin. Along with Jesus, other Nativity figures will be fitted with the tracking devices. The baby Jesus was stolen earlier this month from a Nativity scene and returned four days later. A spokesman for BrickHouse Security says the tracking services are offered to a number of churches and non-profits for free. The company tells The Indianapolis Star the small tracking device will text or email an alert if the figurine is moved.

TROOPS-HOLIDAY HOMECOMING

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Army Chief Warrant Officer Duane Sandbothe is trying to keep a Christmas secret. He returned home yesterday from deployment to Afghanistan. He hopes to make his homecoming a Christmas surprise for his 8-year-old son. Sandbothe says his boy is to ask Santa Claus to get dad home by Christmas. Sandbothe says he plans to lie low for a week. Sandbothe is among 61 citizen-soldiers of the Georgia National Guard coming back from a 10-month deployment.

RED KETTLE-CASH DONATION

MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) -- Someone is dropping more than spare change into the Salvation Army's Red Kettles. Crisp $100 bills were donated at a number of Cocoa Beach, Florida, area locations, totaling nearly 10-grand. Salvation Army officials tell Florida Today they believe the money came from the same person. Amounts in each kettle ranged from $500 to $1,000.

CHRISTIE-COWBOYS

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jersey guy Chris Christie will be showing more Cowboys love this weekend. The New Jersey governor has never been shy about rooting for the Dallas Cowboys. But his fan devotion has come under fire again, after Christie was seen high-fiving Cowboys owner Jerry Jones during last Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Christie tells Philadelphia sports radio station 94WIP he'll be sitting in Jones' box again this coming Sunday, when Dallas hosts the Indianapolis Colts. Christie says he won't change his team loyalty just to score some political points.
