Crew members said they spotted the abnormally thin, weak dog on Sunnyside Drive and called the Lake County Office of Animal Services for help, WFTV-TV reported.

The dog was taken to the Lake County Animal Shelter, where she weighed in at 22 pounds.

Pit Sisters, a Jacksonville-based rescue agency, ensured that the dog received emergency care.

"I know we have a great group of employees, but this week, I found out we have a couple of heroes," Lori Koontz, the division's manager, said in a statement.

The dog, who has been nicknamed "Glory," is eating, drinking and slowly regaining strength.

  • The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) is investigating a suspicious death in Pawnee County. The Pawnee County Sheriff's Office asked for help from OSBI after human remains were found in a burned residence in the 54000 block of South 36520 Road in Cleveland. Firefighters were called to the house on June 6. The human remains were found in the debris on Thursday.  Deputies say they’re not ruling it a homicide, but the death is suspicious. The Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiners will now determine the cause of death. Investigators haven’t released the name.
  • The pursuit of a shooting with intent to kill suspect took a surprising twist when the suspect fell off of a bridge and tumbled to the ground some thirty feet below. The Tulsa police department released video of the incident this week. TPD says it happened April 30th of this year on the north leg of the inner dispersal loop downtown. The suspect, identified as Damico Taylor, is seen hanging from the bridge in video from an officer's bodycam. The officer commands him to “get on the ground,” and at that point Taylor either slips, or deliberately drops, to the ground below. When the officer gets to him, he doesn't pull a weapon - rather, he pulls out rubber gloves and begins assessing the suspect's condition. As of this writing, no charges have been filed yet in the case. Police say Taylor suffered multiple injuries, but will recover.

  • NBC News and the Democratic National Committee unveiled the lineups for the first two night debate in late June, setting the stage for the first group face off of the large Democratic field for 2020, with three top candidates getting paired together on the second night. The first night - Wednesday June 26 - features Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), while former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigeg, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) are grouped together on Thursday. Here are the lineups as announced Friday by NBC News, which is hosting this first debate in Miami. The lineup means that four of the top five candidates - in terms of overall polling right now among Democrats - will be in the second debate, with Warren the only one of those leaders going on Wednesday.
  • With lawmakers in both parties criticizing remarks by President Donald Trump in which he said he would not automatically reject offers of foreign election help, the head of the Federal Election Committee went on Mr. Trump's favorite social media platform Thursday night to clearly state that such a move 'has been considered unacceptable since the beginning of our nation.' “Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office,” said Federal Elections Commission chair Ellen Weintraub.  “It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election,” Weintraub said in a statement on Twitter. Without mentioning the President directly, the FEC chief directly addressed one of his comments in an interview earlier this week with ABC News. “Any political campaign that receives an offer of a prohibited donation from a foreign source should report that to the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Weintraub said, echoing calls by the FBI Director last month, and directly contradicting the President's statements from earlier this week. “Everybody in the country should be totally appalled by what the President said,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday. “This one borders on so totally unethical that he doesn’t even realize it,” she added, as the President took flak from members of both parties. “I think it's a mistake,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters on Capitol Hill.  “I don't want to send a signal to encourage this.”
  • Margaret Hunter, indicted along with her husband Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) for the alleged misuse of over $250,000 in campaign money, plead guilty on Thursday to federal corruption charges, raising the possibility that she could testify in any trial involving the GOP lawmaker. The Hunters were indicted in August of 2018 over the use of campaign money for personal expenses, as federal prosecutors detailed how credit cards for the Congressman's campaign were used for family vacations, hotel rooms, dinners, and a variety of personal home expenses. Under her agreement with federal prosecutors, Margaret Hunter plead guilty to 'knowingly and willfully' converting campaign funds to personal use; the original indictment against the Hunters said the husband and wife 'knowingly conspired with each other.' Mrs. Hunter did not speak to reporters, allowing her lawyer Thomas McNamara to read a statement outside the court house, after she entered her plea agreement. The guilty plea raised even more questions about Hunter's future in the Congress; Republican leaders have refused to allow Hunter to serve on any committees while he is under indictment, leaving him with little in the way of official responsibilities, other than voting and constituent services. Hunter is one of two GOP lawmakers currently serving in Congress who are facing federal indictments.  Rep. Chris Collins R-NY is awaiting trial on charges related to insider trading. The charges against the Hunters were highly detailed, showing that they funneled campaign money to their own personal use for vacations, hotels, dinners - and a wide variety of domestic items, including groceries, payments for a dance competition, video games, school lunches for their children, dental work, dog food, utility bills, and even private school tuition. The plea agreement also included details of how the Hunters used campaign money to fly their family's pet rabbit around the country. Hunter's reaction came in a written statement, as he again denounced his prosecution. “It was politically motivated at the beginning, it remains politically motivated now,” Hunter said. Rep. Hunter's next scheduled court date is July 1.
  • A day after Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) voted with Democrats on a U.S. House panel to hold the Attorney General and the Secretary of Commerce in contempt of Congress, one of President Trump's sons stepped up the attacks on the Michigan Republican, making clear a strong desire to get rid of the GOP lawmaker in the 2020 elections. 'I hear Michigan is beautiful during primary season,' tweeted Donald Trump Jr., on Thursday morning, citing a poll in Amash's district in Western Michigan, which showed him trailing a primary challenger. Amash responded by quoting from an email by Trump Jr. about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting, involving an offer of dirt on the campaign of Hillary Clinton. In a tweet, Amash said, “if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer” - which was exactly Trump Jr.'s response on June 3, 2016 to an email which offered “documents and information that would incriminate Hillary.” Earlier this week, Amash resigned from the conservative House Freedom Caucus, as the top Republican in the House made clear that Amash's call for impeachment proceedings against President Trump was not welcome. 'Justin Amash can determine his own future, but I think in a philosophical basis, he’s probably in a different place than the majority of all of us,' said Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). After Amash raised questions about how Attorney General William Barr had handled the Mueller Report, President Trump had called Amash a 'loser.' Amash defended his decision to join with Democrats in the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday to find Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt, in a dispute over documents about the Trump Administration's efforts to put a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. 'Both Democratic and Republican attorneys general are capable of being in contempt of Congress,' Amash said, as he defended voting for contempt proceedings as well against Attorney General Eric Holder under President Obama. Amash is the only Republican lawmaker in the House who has called for the start of impeachment proceedings against President Trump, arguing that questions concerning possible obstruction of justice deserve further scrutiny by the Congress. Amash argues there is too much partisanship, which keeps lawmakers and politicians from honestly dealing with major issues before America. 'The two-party system is hurting America,' Amash tweeted this week. First elected in the Tea Party wave election of 2010, Amash has already drawn two GOP challengers in his district. The Michigan primary elections don't take place until August 4, 2020.
  • After a budget surplus in April, the deficit numbers went south for the federal government in May, as the Treasury Department reported Wednesday that Uncle Sam ran a deficit of $207 billion last month, pushing the overall deficit in 2019 to $738.6 billion, over $200 billion higher than the same point a year ago. While some of the increase was due to a shift in the timing of certain federal government payments which made the monthly shortfall larger, the Trump Administration is still forecasting a yearly deficit of almost $1.1 trillion for 2019, up from $779 billion for all of 2018. Revenues are up $50 billion so far this year, with $20 billion of that increase coming from the collection of extra tariffs levied by the Trump Administration; individual income tax receipts are up, while corporate tax collections are down. Spending is up by $257 billion so far in 2019, with the main increases coming in Social Security, Medicare, the VA, Defense and interest on the debt. So far in 2019, $269 billion has gone to pay interest on the debt, as higher interest rates have increased that figure even more in 2019, costing the feds $40 billion in May alone, as the national debt is now over $22 trillion. The announcement of the latest monthly deficit numbers was greeted with almost total silence from Capitol Hill, where concern about the fiscal situation of the United States has seemingly evaporated in the last two years, especially among many GOP lawmakers. 'Congress can and should do better for the American people, and this is a necessary first step to reining in our $22 trillion national debt,' said Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), who has been a lonely voice among Republicans in demanding budget cuts and changes in the budget process in Congress. Perdue unveiled legislation on Tuesday to reform how lawmakers deal with the budget, focusing on ways to make the Congressional budget process actually function. Perdue's plan involves changing the federal government's fiscal year to match the regular calendar year, and penalizing lawmakers by docking their pay if they can't finish their work on the yearly spending bills by December 31 of each year. Here are the federal deficits for the last ten years, including the estimated deficit for Fiscal Year 2019, which ends on September 30: 2009 - $1.41 trillion 2010 - $1.29 trillion 2011 - $1.299 trillion 2012 - $1.076 trillion 2013 - $679.8 billion 2014 - $484.8 billion 2015 - $441.9 billion 2016 - $584.6 billion 2017 - $665.4 billion 2018 - $779.1 billion 2019 - $1.091 trillion (estimated) The current projection from the Trump Administration is for four straight years of deficits over $1 trillion, equaling the record set under President Obama.
