Less than two hours before the deadline, the U-S House and Senate approved a plan to reopen the government and extend the debt ceiling - but for how long?  We will have the latest on the vote and tell you when the country will face new deadlines in the coming weeks.

Plus, it's being called the salute seen around the world.  See the picture that's going viral of a ranger stationed at Fort Benning, after he was severely injured in Afghanistan.

And when you think about breast cancer awareness month you usually think pink – but hundreds of men also die from breast cancer every year.  Tonight you'll meet a local woman who lost her father to breast cancer.
