THE DARRYL WORLEY CANCER TREATMENT CENTER BREAKS GROUND IN SAVANNAH, TN  ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3
Country Singer's Dream of Cancer Treatment Center
Moves to Next Phase
 
Nashville, TN, February 23, 2010... Platinum-selling country artist Darryl Worley's vision and dream of one day opening a cancer treatment center in his hometown is finally coming true. On Wednesday, March 3 at 10:00 a.m. CT, the groundbreaking ceremony of The Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center is set to take place in Savannah, TN.
Darryl WorleyIn 2005, Worley and representatives of Hardin Medical Center and Hardin County Community and Healthcare Foundation joined forces to put a plan into action to open The Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center, which will now afford both radiation and chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients. The building will be located on the campus of Hardin Medical Center and is envisioned to allow cancer patients to receive therapy without the long drives currently required of many who need these treatments.
 
"It's been our dream to build this cancer treatment center here in Hardin County for several years now, and the people of Hardin County and the West Tennessee area have done a lot to help make this dream a reality," states Worley. "We have a really high cancer rate in our general area and all of our lives have been affected by the dreaded disease, so there is a lot of passion in this for everyone."
 
"Having the capability to provide additional therapies here in Hardin County will save so many hours of traveling for patients," says Hardin Medical Center CEO, Charlotte Burns. "I know it is this human side of combating cancer that has touched Darryl's heart so deeply."
 
Worley, who lost both of his grandfathers and one of his aunts to cancer, knows all too well the emotional and physical tolls it takes when a loved one has the disease.  "I know what it cost when they had to go out of town for treatment. I don't want anyone else having to make those trips, adding to what they are already going through," Worley says.
 
After his loss, Worley knew he was in a unique position to put his vision to help others into action. "Both my mom's dad and my dad's dad died with cancer. One of them would not even try to make the long, back and forth, out-of-town trips for radiation therapy," Worley explains. "People just shouldn't have to go through that kind of stuff, and I'm excited to know this center will help so many. This is going to be an emotional day for us all when we break ground. It's been a long time coming."
 
The Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center has received a guaranteed maximum price of $2.0 million for construction of the building. The Hardin County Community and Healthcare Foundation, Inc. has taken on a mission of raising the construction costs, already raising over $1.6 million to date through donations and pledges. Of the money already raised, the singer's own charity, The Darryl Worley Foundation, has made a $600,000 donation to the cause.
 
"No one is exempt from this disease," Worley says. "Although a cure has not yet been found, we must do what we can to treat cancer patients with the technology available to us."
 
The treatment center has hopes of opening its doors by early 2011. In the meantime, Worley will continue his fundraising efforts through his annual Tennessee River Run event where proceeds also benefit charities such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Donations to The Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center can be sent to Hardin Medical Center, 935 Wayne Road, Savannah, TN 38372.

Funeral Arrangements Set For Craig Morgan's Son Jerry

Jerry Michael Hardy Greer is the son of Craig and Karen Greer. He was 19 years old on the day of his going home. Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room. He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve. He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words, and in our hearts.

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

They call her..The Bare Naked Bandit..29 yr Old Lee Grace Doherty

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
