A Tuscaloosa County man has been accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend's estranged husband.Victim Jeffrey Neil Grant, 41, was at his estranged wife's home in the 6500 block of Jenean Street in Cottondale for their daughter's 11th birthday party late Saturday, said Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit commander Capt. Loyd Baker. William Robert Mitchell, 27, arrived at his girlfriend's house around 9 p.m. and wanted to know whose truck was in the driveway, he said. Mitchell slapped the woman and pushed her to the ground when she told him to leave, Baker said. He then forced his way inside and began throwing items around as he retrieved his clothes and a gun, Baker said.
Grant called the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office to report Mitchell, Baker said. The men then argued before Mitchell shot Grant in the chest, he said. Mitchell left the house and later called the Sheriff's Office to report that he had shot someone, he said. He was charged with murder and third-degree assault/domestic violence. Grant died shortly after his arrival at DCH Regional Medical Center.

Head injuries are more likely in high school football than college football.
Thursday 09-06-2012 4:15pm CT
Catastrophic football head injuries are rare, but they may be more than three times as common in high school football players than college athletes, a new study shows.
Catastrophic head injuries, which include bleeding or swelling in the brain, can be fatal.
Even if football head injuries aren't severe, players with head injuries should stay out of the game, note the researchers, who included Barry Boden, MD, of The Orthopedic Centre in Rockville, Md.
"Coaches, athletes, parents, athletic trainers, and all medical personnel need to be educated to never allow an athlete to continue playing football with ongoing neurologic symptoms," write Boden and colleagues.
Coaches also "need too continue educating players to avoid hitting with the head," the researchers write in July's edition of The American Journal of Sports Medicine.
Football Head Injuries Studied
Boden's team reviewed 94 cases of severe head injuries sustained by high school football players and college football players between 1989 and 2002.
All but two of those cases occurred in high school athletes.
The cases, which were reported to the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research, included eight players who died from their head injuries and 46 athletes who suffered permanent paralysis, memory loss, seizures, or other permanent injuries.
The head injuries typically happened when the athlete's head hit another player's head, other body part, or the ground during a tackle. Head injuries were more common during games than during practices.
Based on the number of high school and college football players -- including the vast majority who don't get severe head injuries -- the researchers estimate that catastrophic head injuries are 3.28 times more common in high school football players than in college players.

Everyday things that can help you lose weight
Monday 07-23-2012 3:07pm CT
Adults in the United States are just not getting enough physical activity, period. We are getting bigger and bigger - here's 5 tips that could help.
- Don't use elevators or escalators; instead, take the stairs. Start with one such substitution a day, and build up slowly. So you work on the 50th floor? Ride up to 48 and walk up from there. Careful, though -- walking down stairs can be hard on your knees. Walk up, but ride down.
- Stop circling parking lots and fighting for the closest spot. Park a little bit farther away from the office or mall, and walk. You'll not only increase fitness, you'll decrease stress.
- If you take the bus or subway, get off one or two stops early and walk the rest of the way.
- Vacuum more often, change the sheets more often, mop the floor more often. These get your heart pumping, which means they are excellent calorie burners.
- It's summertime! Get outside! Cut your grass, weedeat or spray around your house for bugs.

Danielle Murphree, (pictured in the middle) the 23-year-old nurse from Tuscaloosa, Ala. She tells Zap2it her strategy is stay under the radar at first.
"I'm going to lay low, I'm not going to get a target on my back the first couple weeks even though I am very competitive ... I'm going to not show all my cards or any of that until nine, 10 people are left and then I'm going to show my more strategic side," says Danielle.
She also says she's going to play a stand-up game and not lose her morals.
"I will definitely play as honorably as I can. I've got people back home, my job, my nieces watching me. I'm going to try to be as good of a person as I can on the show," says Danielle. "If I give somebody my word, I'm going to stick by it. Whether that comes back to bite me, if it's a bad decision, that's my own fault."
Danielle also tells us she's not going to fake a showmance. If she has a real connection with someone, then she's open to a romance, though. And she also does not plan to tell the houseguests she's a nurse. She's going to say she's a kindergarten teacher.
As far as what makes her unique from other or past contestants, Danielle says, "I don't know if it's that I'm too real, or too open. I'm very bubbly and energetic ... I'm very outgoing, I'll say what's on my mind."
