In Brief: Willis donates his ski resort

Bruce Willis says he is willing to give away his central Idaho ski resort to a non-profit making organisation.

The Hollywood star (below) has already put his lavish home in nearby Hailey, Idaho, on the market -- listed at $15m -- along with his local bar and nightclub -- listed at $4m.

Now the actor says he is willing to give the Soldier Mountain ski area to the right non-profit group.

Willis, best known for the Die Hard series and Sixth Sense, has owned the ski area since the late 1990s.



Aaron Dunne

In the edition of the Evening Herald on April 3, 2012 we published a court report indicating that an Aaron Dunne of Hawthorn Terrace, Drogheda, Co Louth, was charged with possession with intent to supply €6.5m of drugs.

The article carried a photograph of another person also named Mr Aaron Dunne of Latchford Close, Clonee, Dublin 15.

The Herald wish to make clear that the Aaron Dunne pictured was not charged with any offence.

We wish to apologise unreservedly for any hurt, embarrassment and anxiety caused to Mr Dunne and his family.



Health alert on club drug

Many people who use the club drug ketamine -- known as 'special K' -- may risk abdominal pain, bladder control problems and other urinary tract issues.

A study has found that of 1,285 young adults who said they'd abused ketamine in the past year, 27pc had developed urinary tract symptoms.

In clubs, ketamine is snorted or sometimes injected, with users saying it creates feelings of euphoria and being "out of your body".



Burger King sorry to Blige

Burger King is apologising to singer Mary J Blige and her fans for releasing an ad that sparked a backlash.

The clip featured Blige soulfully singing about the fast-food chain's new chicken snack wraps.

It immediately went viral after some in the black community said it was stereotypical.
