FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
AARON TIPPIN HELPS PUT TRUCKER
‘BACK ON THE ROAD’
Country Singer Teams with Arrow Truck Sales in Annual Giveaway
 
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (APRIL 8, 2010)—One-time truck driver and an all-time country great, Aaron Tippin helped select the winner ofthe third annual Arrow’s “Back on the Road”campaign.  Presented by Volvo Trucks North America, “Back on the Road” is an initiative created in the wake of the downturned economy and awards one deserving driver a new 18-wheeler that, in turn, provides them the opportunity to get back to the road and stay on course.
 
Tippin has participated in the selection process for the past two years.
 
“Being a former trucker, Aaron threw his full support behind this worthwhile cause through the use of his voice, music and image, and has insisted on being involved in the actual selection process of our ‘Back on the Road’ winners,” saidLane Bartram, Marketing Manager for Arrow Truck Sales.  “It’s heartening to find people like Aaron in the music and entertainment business who are willing to become actively and emotionally involved in an effort to help change someone’s life for the better.”
 
After being nominated by his teenage daughter Savannah, Robert Snyder of Dunnellon, Fla. was selected as the winner.  As the sole provider for his family, Snyder was hit particularly hard when the economy nosedived.  Diesel prices soared, job opportunities became scarce, and Snyder’s 14-year-old truck, with more than 1.5 million miles on the odometer, was one breakdown away to leaving him unemployed.
 
Snyder says winning “Back on the Road” is ‘a dream come true.’ In addition to winning a one-year lease on a 2007 VNL670 tractor donated by Volvo Trucks, he signed a one-year work agreement with Heartland Express and will receive monthly $500 fuel cards courtesy of Pilot Travel Centers, along with other prizes.
 
“Driving is my life and I know receiving the Volvo from Volvo Trucks North America and job with Heartland will help me provide my family with the life they deserve,” Snyder said.  “I am blessed to have this opportunity to represent Arrow Truck Sales and all the great companies who have joined in this campaign to make life better for hardworking people like me.”
 
“It’s a tough time for everyone and I believe the truckers carry a good portion of the burden,” Tippin added. “America thrives on the trucking industry and the hard working men and women who bring goods to our grocery stores and front doors.  It does my heart good to be involved in an event, and an association such as this, to keep these folks on the road; working to not only provide for their families, but all of us.”

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. 
Jerry was preceded in death by grandfather William Edward Horn, grandmother Betty Sue Crockett and cousin Brant Keith Kelley.

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…
