The former estate of Michael Jackson, Neverland Ranch, is being prepared for sale according to this article.
Thomas Barrack Jr. of Colony Capital LLC discusses the estate.
“We’ve really just been custodians of an irreplaceable estate and are proud to say we’ve restored it to the original elegance Michael first envisioned,” Barrack said. “We are now considering putting it up for sale.”
They also interviewed a broker associate, Thomas LePley, to get an idea of value on the property. “I’d say it’s worth $35 million to $50 million, depending on what they do with it. Barrack has cleaned it up and returned it to perfect condition. It had been neglected.”

Scary moments for a passenger traveling down a highway in Massachusetts.

The photo above shows an ax that flew out of the back of a truck traveling on Rte. 95 in Topsfield, Massachusetts. The State police posted the photo to their Facebook page with this caption below.

"These motorists, whom we are not identifying, endured a very frightening moment shortly before 11 a.m. today as they were driving on Route 95 southbound in Topsfield. A landscaper driving a dump truck in front of them had failed to properly secure an axe, which flew off the truck and struck the windshield of the car behind it. Thankfully, the axe only went halfway through the windshield. The passenger who is partially seen in the photo was shaken up (who wouldn't be?) but not injured."

They also reminded motorists to secure all belongings safely.

A video has surfaced of Tim McGraw performing in Atlanta over the weekend that appears to show the performer slapping a fan.
A rep for McGraw stated in an interview to Billboard "at the end of the night during the encore, Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn't let go as he was moving through the crowd. He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing), and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show. He didn't know who had grabbed him and was trying to keep his pants from being torn."
