OAK PARK, Ill – To some, boxing is a brutal sport. To pugilistic purists, it’s the “sweet science.” For one local aspiring fighter, the ring offers a refuge from a devastating disorder that he deals with on a daily basis.

The Golden Gloves on Saturday will be J.P D’Amico’s first big fight in the ring, but he’s been fighting a much tougher opponent his whole life.

The 20-year-old Oak Park native is trying to beat a severe case of Tourette’s Syndrome through boxing.

“I’ve had vocal tics, I’ve had slight eye movements, that my eyes vibrate,” he said. “Huge twitches, where I pop my arm out really fast and hard,” he said. “Things hurt. I couldn’t walk straight because of the eye moving


ELIZABETH, N.J. — Six New Jersey co-workers pooled their resources on a Mega-Millions lottery ticket, when one of them claimed a huge jackpot, the others got mad and got lawyers.

Five former friends and construction company co-workers want Lopes to fork over $4-million dollars after taxes for each of them. The men claim that the $24-million jackpot belongs to all of them, they say that the tickets were bought for the entire group.

Lopes’ attorney argues that Lopes also bought a personal ticket — the winning ticket.

One member of the group, Candido Silva Sr., came to tears on the witness stand. Silva told the court that the group shared an “all for one and one for all mentality” and


Inside the bag, the two kittens struggled in darkness—confused, weakened and afraid. Their littermates had been horribly mangled by the traffic on the rural Iowa highway, and it seemed the next car barreling down the road would seal their fate as well.

But when fate did intervene, it came not in the form of a speeding car, but a courageous dog named Reagan. The floppy-eared pooch snatched a bag of cat food out of the road, and dragged it all the way home.

The Huffington Post reports that Reagan whined until her owner opened the bag. There she found the two kittens, crying and trying to free themselves from the web of gore. Horrified, she called the Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary.


Miley Cyrus came under fire yet again this week for a controversial tweet that some dullard critics deemed anti-Christian.

Okay, let me get my worthless two-cents in here. These so-called critics usually bitch about anything but fail to talk about their own miserable lives, the torment they cause to their own children, their sexless nights, contradictive lifestyles, mindless rants, sometimes even worse than mine. Many of them have failed their test in life, (whatever that means) and they cannot stand to talk about their low scholastic scores, low IQ's and their miserable daily neanderthal existence. These pathetic screamers attempt to put down bright, talented young women, anyone who does


Only Greg Cook's beloved dog Coco was home when a tornado tore through his home in Limestone County, Ala.

Cook rushed home after the winds had stopped to find his house and 50 others destroyed. While homes can be repaired, it was his chocolate Labrador that he feared he'd lost forever.

But like the rainbow at the end of the storm, there was some good news when Cook was reunited with Coco, who managed to survive the Category-5 tornado.

According to, Cook sifted through the debris and crawled through a window to find his dog soaking wet and shaking in a hallway.

"It was just such a relief, I was so happy to see him," said Cook, who was in tears when they were reunited.


Parents learned their 3-year-old daughter was missing when they saw a news broadcast reporting she'd been found in a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant.

Employees of the Bel Air, Md. pizzeria discovered the girl, Harmony, was by herself when she told a worker that she was thirsty at 8 p.m on Sunday. The manager called police after searching the premises for a parent or guardian. Harford County Sheriff's deputies waited with Harmony in the restaurant until 9:30 p.m., but no one showed up to get her, according to a press release from the department.

Harmony arrived at the restaurant with a large group of four adults and 10 children. The pizza party broke up around 8 p.m., but apparently none o


Rep. John Fleming (R-LA)Republican House Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana has made himself the target of online ridicule after confusing a spoof article about Planned Parenthood as a factual news report, according to Politico.

An article posted to the Onion’s website on May 18, 2011 is headlined, “Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex.” Of course, as millions of readers already know, the Onion is a satirical news organization, which makes up fake parody stories about real people, places and things.

The fictitious article opens with the obviously made-up lead sentence: “Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday the grand opening of its long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex, a sprawli


Wheeler’s police profile page ( German Shepherd rescued from a New York State animal shelter has gone on to become one of the state’s top crime fighting dogs.

Known as Sgt. Harry J. Wheeler, the K-9 star who has helped find six bodies in police investigations was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn as an abandoned pup eight years ago, according to Petside. Wheeler was rescued by Liz Keller, who works for the Glen Wild Animal Rescue. Petside writes that when Keller noticed Wheeler’s keen perception and protective nature, she thought he would make a good police dog. He then went through a 20-week training course with the New York State Police canine division, and he se


Courtney gave what seemed to be a sincere apology on last night's show of The Bachelor.

But the key question during a particularly lively episode of The Women Tell All, was the gripe fest that routinely airs just before The Bachelor season finale.

Oh sure, we got to hear grandma’s girl Brittney call yappy Samantha Levey a Chihuahua and watch all of the women shoot daggers — again — at interloper Shawntel Newton and hear Samantha call Blakeley Shea a bully, but those were just snacks.

For the main course, Chris Harrison served up Courtney Robertson on a platter to the other women.

The vitriol goes deeper than just the fact that Courtney is the one we’ll likely see become engaged


Dorothea Taylor, 85, defended her husband from an angry moose by grabbing a shovel to beat off the crazed animal in Alaska.

The couple were out walking their dogs when the mammal ran down a hill and launched a ferocious attack on her husband George Murphy, 82.

When she heard the barks of her dogs, Mrs Taylor ran to the boot of her pick-up truck where she grabbed a shovel to warn off the angry moose.

Her husband described his wife’s actions as ‘heroic’ after she repeatedly hit the moose over the head with the shovel to save him from a vicious stamping. The retired engineer told Anchorage Daily News: ‘He spotted me and he started to come right after me. So I was trying to get to th
