The governor of North Carolina Governor says helping the most vulnerable people after a power station was attacked is his top priority. Nearly 40-thousand customers are still without power after what Governor Roy Cooper called a "criminal attack" on substations in Moore County. Duke Power says outages could continue into Wednesday or Thursday after police say electrical equipment was shot at Saturday night.        The man who shot Lady Gaga's dog walker and stole her French bulldogs is going away for a long time. After Monday's no contest plea in Los Angeles, James Howard Jackson was immediately sentenced to 21 years in prison. The dog walker survived the shooting and the dogs were eventually recovered.        A New York Congressman wants legislation to regulate cryptocurrency exchanges. It comes just weeks after F-T-X collapsed. The bills would prevent exchanges from lending customers money without their consent.        The two students who survived the murder of four University of Idaho students have released their first statements since the attack. Bethany Funke and Dylan Mortensen wrote statements that were read by a youth pastor about their dead friends. The two were asleep when the killings happened.        You have more time to get the Real ID necessary to board flights or enter federal facilities. The Department of Homeland Security announced the Real ID deadline will be pushed back from May 3rd of next year to May 7th, 2025. DHS said the extension is necessary to address the lingering impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.        A lawsuit is being filed by Taylor Swift fans against Live Nation over the mishandling of the pop star's ticket sales for her upcoming tour. More than a dozen "Swifties" filed the complaint in a Los Angeles court against the ticket company after getting booted offline. They cited a breach of contract, intentional misrepresentation, fraud, antitrust and unfair competition.
