After an unusual six-week lapse in executions in the USA since a botched effort in Oklahoma on April 29, two men could face lethal-injection deaths in Georgia and Missouri Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. Should the execution of Marcus Wellons go forward at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday in Georgia, it would be that state's first lethal injection using a drug not federally approved. That's the result of a scramble by Georgia and other states in recent months to obtain drugs necessary for executions.
A man who jumped off a commercial fishing boat on a dare off the coast of Marin County last week is probably reconsidering his actions after the U.S. Coast Guard issued him a hefty ticket for the offense. The man, who was not identified, was aboard the charter fishing vessel Bass Tub off of Muir Beach on June 22 when his friends dared him to jump into the frigid waters, a Coast Guard spokesman said. He did and was quickly retrieved by the boat’s crew uninjured, the Coast Guard said. The dip did not come cheap, however, as the Coast Guard, who do not take such things lightly, promptly issued the man a ticket to the tune of $5,000, officials said.
2015 is the year of the selfie. Michelle Obama made that loud and clear Wednesday when she announced that the White House is lifting its ban on cameras and social media during public tours. However, video cameras—action camcorders, cameras with detachable lenses, tablets, tripods, monopods and camera sticks—are still banned. Flash photography and live-streaming are prohibited. The announcement came after Michelle, honorary president of the Girl Scouts, hosted an overnight camp out on the White House lawn.

A federal judge says Alabama counties must abide by court decisions allowing gay marriage. District Judge Callie Granade issued an order Wednesday updating a previous ruling in favor of same-sex marriage in Alabama. Granade says state probate judges can't discriminate against gay couples because the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled gay marriage is legal everywhere. But her order doesn't affect counties that have stopped issuing all marriage licenses. The judge had put previous decisions on hold to allow time for the justices to rule.
