The Humane Society went to social media to find this guy a home. But, Don Flowers says they want to make sure Rami goes to the right home, avoiding adopters who may want to exploit him based on his one-of-a-kind look. Flowers said they’ll have “a pretty tough test for people that are wanting this dog Humane Society workers say not to let that tough pit bull exterior fool you. Rami is terrified of the kittens at the shelter. The Humane Society says Rami will be available for adoption next week.

A Day In The Life of A Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Deputy Paramedic
 
02:23
Last time WVUA brought you a day in the life of a Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Deputy, this time we show you what its like to be a Deputy Paramedic. The Sheriff's Office rolled out their first ever medical unit team in 2012. Although, the main priority these men and women have are to aid in medical emergencies, they are deputies first and paramedics second. Deputy Paramedic Richard Black has been with the office for 4 years. He says, the medical unit has been great for communities such as Brookwood, - "the most important aspect of the medical unit at the Sheriff's Office is that we're in the more rural areas and can offer more advanced care while waiting on ambulance services to arrive." - Richard Black Deputy Paramedics work very closely with surrounding agencies such as EMT's, EMS, and the VFD. In the end they all have one common goal, to provide the best possible care to the public. Chief Deputy Byron Waid with the Sheriff's Office has had a huge part in putting this unit together. For Waid "its been gratifying," to see this program grow. He also says, the men and women who are apart of this unit have understood the mission of the program and that's to get care to people in rural areas.

"Dixieland Delight" can be heard around Tuscaloosa on any given day but especially on game days. Some would say it is now even "tradition" to play it on home games but as of the 2015 football season the infamous "Dixieland Delight" song was no more. The song was banned from Bryant-Denny Stadium due to complaints some students were chanting phrases that could be considered offensive while the song was playing. UA senior Jon Adams started a petition online to bring it back for this weeks Iron Bowl. He says, "players get really pumped up when we sing this song, the crowd gets really pumped, I mean I can't think of any bigger advantage we can give the team as a crowd if we were able to sing this song and you know get the whole crowd hype and just really get Bryant-Denny rockin for the Iron Bowl." UA student Andrew Cerincky says, "as a sophomore who hasn't experienced the song and all the hype in the stadium to Dixieland Delight I'd like to hear it and experience that." As of this evening the petition has 6,032 signatures and Adams encourages everyone to head over to change.org to sign it.

Alumni Russ Daniel says, he's "really impressed, they've done a really nice job not only the exterior itself, it seems to be pretty functional and we were commenting on the outfield wall, how its clear and its just beautiful." University of Alabama Junior, Sarah Guzman is impressed with the kids playground. Alumni would also like to see the new stadium bring in a bigger fan-base. "I would like for it to bring out more fans especially for the big weekend series and for that to promote a home-field advantage and for that to turn into wins that would be the ultimate." -Daniel While everyone is excited for a new beginning, some will never forget the old Joe, "It was a beautiful stadium, it's a shame we couldn't keep it and be able to use it as a practice facility or something like that." -Skip Cannon Overall, The new Joe accommodates all ages, and fans believe it will develop its own charm.
