Did you hear the Good News this week? 

Tuesday night, The 200 Club of Savannah presented its annual Valor Awards.The 200 Club recognized firefighters Christopher Lamb and Justin Goldberg, who pulled the same woman out of the Savannah River in separate incidents.

They also honored Georgia State Trooper Kelvin Carswell, who helped capture an armed suspect following a shootout.

So when is going to jail good news? It is when you're going there to adopt a dog. 

Operation New Hope takes dogs from the humane society and lets Chatham County Jail inmates train them for four weeks. At the end of training families are invited to come out and adopt one of the dogs. 

The dogs trained in this class were adopted out in less than an hour. And finally this week, the story of a 9 year old who's living a dream. Turner Birthisel, a third grader at Savannah's Country Day,  was cast this week in one of the leading roles in the Broadway touring company of Newsies.

Birthisel will spend the next six months travelling around the country and taking center stage.
