One last call just doesn't seem to cut it. Well, some incredible surveillance tape tops our look across country.

Wednesday, 1:30 in the morning, this SUV plows1 in front of a Massachusetts liquor store. The driver gets out, apparently2 looking to wet his whistle. He couldn't reach the bottle so he ends up just taking off, and later caught in a DUI arrest. Oh, yes, up until this point, by the way, he was well respected in the community. His name, Dr. Joseph Grillo.

I feel very badly about what happened and you know, plan to take suitable action.

Animal control officers in Boise, Idaho took suitable action when they heard about a Jack4 Russell terrier caught in a tight spot, like a drainage pipe for some 19 hours. His name, Eddie. You can actually hear the one-year old pooch whimpering during the entire rescue process. But all's well that ends well. Eddie is now free and his owner ecstatic.

And from Inglewood, Florida, necessity is the mother of all inventions. Since Brian David was injured in a traffic accident decades ago, he found conventional wheelchairs to be a real pain. So he made his own type of transportation, something akin3 to a motorized gurney. He called it an IGMA, short for "it gets me around." Could be a prototype as Brian is thinking about building more to help injured service men and women.

Well, there are so many amazing stories within the ranks of our military, but none quite like Army Captain Scotty Smiley. He's a decorated Army ranger5, a family man and a thrill seeker.

Check out Scotty sky diving and now catching6 waves in Hawaii, climbing Mount Rainier. A pretty amazing young man, isn't he? Well, the amazing factor just gets bigger. Captain Scott Smiley is blind.

The Army's first active blind duty officer ever and he's living life to the fullest. A car bomb in Mosul, Iraq, almost killed him. A bomb went off just yards away landing him in the hospital and cost him his sight.

He writes about it in his book "Hope Unseen" and I sure hope that you'll take a chance to read it.
