FOREST PARK, Ga. -

(AP) - A Georgia family is in mourning after their babysitter's dog killed their 5-month-old child.
  
Clayton County Police Sgt. Ashanti Marbury says the German Shepherd mauled Paige George on Tuesday at a home in Forest Park, south of Atlanta.
  
WSB-TV reports the family says the dog has been around the baby since she was born. Terika George, Paige's mother, says she's been constantly crying and that she apologized to her baby "because I always take you with me."
  
According to police, a babysitter - a longtime family friend - told police he put the baby down to sleep and then he fell asleep in another room. Around 3 a.m. Wednesday, someone reported the dog had killed the baby.
  
Police said no charges have been filed. The dog has been euthanized.

    Spokane business owner fed up with feces, unwanted surprise at work

    Thursday, June 21 2018 2:32 AM EDT2018-06-21 06:32:06 GMT

    A Spokane business owner says enough is enough after finding human feces in front of her doorstep three days in a row. The incidences happened at Neat Old Stuff located at 3rd and Bernard. The shop's owner, CP Phare, has been in the same location for the last decade and says suspicious activity has ramped up in the last year, but nothing like what's been happening over the last few days. "There's like surprise packages usually two-to-three times a week,"

    AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. - A new study released Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that perfluoroalkyl substances or PFAS, are more dangerous at lower levels than previously thought. The 852-page study was suppressed by the Trump administration because of the "public relations nightmare" it might cause.  High levels of these chemicals, which are found in firefighting foam, were detected in the Airway Heights drinking water system last year.
