- Ex-Border Patrol Agents expose politicians helping cartels in the United States. I'd say that takes some guts. Well done men!
- Kimberly Linberger Vaughn records a touching tribute to her late husband Aaron, who died aboard Extortion 17 on August 6, 2011.
- Rock Hill-area veteran whose golf cart was stolen got a new ride. 92-year-old World War II combat veteran J.C. Green, for the first time in his life accepted a gift, a brand new custom golf cart. The gift (worth $4800) was paid for by donations from people who were outraged that somebody stole Green's golf cart, which he used to get around his property southeast of Rock Hill. Thank you Mr. Green for your service and once again it shows that Americans do show their love for their veterans.
- OK, it's somewhat hypocritical, but there was a good outcome. Burglars in Southern California apparently had a change of heart after stealing from a nonprofit organization. The very next day, they returned the items and left an apology letter, NBC Los Angeles reported. The thieves broke into the San Bernardino County Sexual Assault Services on July 31, taking several computer towers and monitors along with a laptop. As police talked to suspects, informing them of what the organization did, apparently someone's conscience bothered them and the next morning all items were returned to the organization with a note attached.
- At 18 years old, Gabrielle Turnquest passed Britain's bar exams and plans to return to America and practice law in the fashion industry.

- Robert and Doris Moody, nearly 95 and 94 years old, respectively, have been married for 73 years (they met in elementary school). Doris Moody recently told local Mississippi news station WLOX that eating pancakes together every day has long brought happiness to the pair. Ah! Another story of people who may have had problems in their marriage, but decided to fix them rather than throw the marriage away. We all could learn something from them. Congratulations on 73 years! 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro
- Gage Driskell, an 11-year-old Idaho boy who is battling brain cancer, had the best birthday last month thanks to an unexpected group of friends. His one wish this year was to ride a motorcycle, and when local biker legend Dwight Murphy heard that, he rallied 75 members of the Treasure Valley biking community to help make the wish come true. A most excellent gesture Mr. Murphy!
- 14-year-old named Joe, who was diagnosed with brain cancer when he was five years old, and now nine years later, he's become beloved member of the Stony Brook University Football Team. Though Joe doesn't play the sport, he was "adopted" by the team through the nonprofit Friends of Jaclyn, and he was eventually elected captain -- a title he's held for three years and counting.
- Abortion facility ordered closed in Ohio, could become 43rd abortion clinic to close in 2013.
Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me. Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men. For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD. They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and behold. Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah. They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city. Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear? But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision. Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence. The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies. Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield. For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak. Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah. And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city. Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied. But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.
