The 13-year-old boy was excited Wednesday, because he was finally old enough to stay home alone. However, the day didn’t go as planned. He usually wears hearing aids but didn’t have them in as he napped, so he didn’t hear the home’s smoke alarms
“My dog licked my face and woke me up,” Lamb said. “I woke up and the entire house was covered with smoke and we ran out in the backyard.”
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper will submit signatures on Tuesday to put a measure that would split California in six separate states.
According to the “Six Californias” plan, each of the six states would have its own government and own collection of elected officials, including congressional representatives.
Much of the Bay Area, including Santa Cruz and Monterey, would become the state of Silicon Valley under the proposal. The northernmost counties would become Jefferson; some North Bay counties would become part of North California, an area that stretches through Sacramento to the Sierra; Stockton, Fresno and Bakersfield would be among Central California’s largest cities; Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara would end up in West California; and San Diego would become the major city in South California.
What are your thoughts? Should we divide Indiana into different states?

Harry Potter, although, aging, is back in a new short story by JK Rowling.
The 1,500-word story, published on the writer’s Pottermore website, describes the now 33-year-old Harry as having “threads of silver” in his black hair.
A fictional gossip column written by Harry Potter journalist Rita Skeeter in the Daily Prophet says he continues to wear his glasses that she says are ‘better suited to a style-deficient 12-year-old’.
Skeeter writes: “One always hesitates to invade the privacy of young people, but the fact is that anyone closely connected with Harry Potter reaps the benefits and must pay the penalty of public interest.”
The fictional gossip column says Ron Weasley, has aged less well with his ginger hair “thinning slightly”. His wife Hermione, Harry’s wife Ginny, and their children all feature in the story. Ron entered into employment within the Ministry of Magic alongside Harry but left two years later and suggests he could even have a mental illness. [!!!!!]
Rowling also gives fans a hint of Harry’s new life by describing a mysterious cut over his cheekbone which signifies his work as an Auror.
