Here a Crazy Story from the Army Times.
A hunting trip took a terrible turn Saturday when a bear that had been shot by two soldiers fell from a ridge and struck one of the men.
Specialist William McCormick, 28, and Pfc. Zachary Tennyson, 19, were on a recreational hunting trip in the area of Carter Lake, Alaska, about 100 miles south of Anchorage, when the incident occurred, according to KTVA.
Both soldiers are members of the 25th Infantry Division’s 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), based out of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
Dispatchers were reportedly notified of the accident through a beacon signal from a Garmin inReach satellite communication device.
The situation was dire by the time help arrived.
“The pair were hunting in the area and shot a bear above them on a ridge,” authorities told KTVA. “The bear rolled down the slope dislodging rocks in the process. [McCormick] was injured when he was struck by both a rock and the bear.”
With the help of Alaska state troopers and personnel from two fire departments, McCormick was carried to a helicopter to be medically evacuated, the report said.
From there, he was flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, where he has reportedly been listed as sustaining “life-threatening injuries.”
A spokesman from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game told KTVA that it was a black bear that had fallen from the ridge just above the two soldiers' position.
Tennyson was not hurt in the accident.

Texas country music star Zane Williams comes to Abilene Tx. May 18th at Homer's Bar and Music Venue in support of his latest album Bringin’ Country Back. More than a catchphrase, “Bringin’ Country Back” is a rallying cry for a return to authenticity and substance in mainstream country music, and a fitting title for his sixth studio album.
“I think of country music as poetry for the common man,” Zane says reflectively. “The stories that draw you in, the simple truth stated in a way you wish you could’ve said…there’s an honesty to country music that totally grabbed me the first time I heard it.”
Born right here Abilene, TX, to a pair of college professors, Zane was moved as a child first to Kentucky, then West Virginia, and then California as his parents pursued their academic careers. While he enjoyed singing harmony in church and composing his own instrumental pieces on the family piano, it wasn’t until he turned sixteen and got the car keys (and control of the radio inside) that he had his first transformative experience with country music.
“I’m flipping stations and I land on Bob Kingsley’s Country Countdown one Sunday morning after church, and I hear this guy Garth Brooks singing “The Dance.” I had just broken up with my first girlfriend, and that song wrecked me; it cut right through me like no song ever had.” Not long after, his parents bought him a used guitar as a reward for good test scores, and Zane began trying his hand at writing his own songs"
Zane will also be playing with Ankana Grace, Matt Austin, The Phantom Hill Band. All Ages Show and $15. You can get tickets early at this link! https://www.homersabilene.com/events/zane-willams

· In a commencement speech at Duke University yesterday, Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook told graduates to be "fearless" like the women in the #MeToo movement and the high school students from Parkland, Florida, who both stood up to rally the masses in a quest to change the world for the better. Some three decades after he graduated from Duke's Fuqua School of Business, Cook returned to the Durham, North Carolina, campus bent on inspiring a new generation to reject the status quo and "and dare to think different." He cited recent examples of people who have been driven to confront the powerful standing in the way of change.
· Donald Trump praised his incredible mom in a heartfelt Mother's Day video, but the president made no mention of the First Lady and mother-of-one, Melania Trump. “This Sunday is one of the most important days of the year. It's a special opportunity to thank all of the mothers and grandmothers in our lives,” Trump said at the start of the video. Trump's mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, was Scottish-born and emigrated to New York in 1930. She found work as a domestic worker before marrying Trump's father, Fred Trump Sr., in 1936. MacLeod passed away in August 2000.

Dozens of homes have been destroyed and hundreds of people forced to evacuate in the past 10 days.

The airline recently revamped the refreshment offering on some of its services saying it was part of streamlining.

For those wanting a Bloody Mary, a pre-mixed can of Mr. And Mrs. T Bloody Mary is offered instead.

But the firm said yesterday that he had quit the day before, the New York Times reported. “After recognizing that this work is all consuming and is lasting longer than initially anticipated, Rudy has determined it is best for him to resign,” said the law firm’s chairman, Richard Rosenbaum.

· Cambridge Analytica, the data firm at the center of the Facebook privacy scandal, is shutting down.

The White House attorney had been one of the Trump lawyers pushing the president to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller.
