Bellamy Brothers Vow to Aid New Zealand Earthquake Victims

  Country Duo Teams with New Zealand Red Cross
  
Nashville, Tenn - (March 16, 2011) -  In the midst of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami coverage, most of the attention has been deferred from the February 22nd earthquake in New Zealand.  And while the devastation in Japan weighs heavy on the hearts and minds of the world, the second-largest city in New Zealand is left in ruins with many lives lost and others left without homes. The 6.3 magnitude tremor was the second major earthquake to hit the city of Christchurch, New Zealand in five months.

Country music's brotherly duo the Bellamy Brothers have teamed with the New Zealand Red Cross and Judy Seale International to raise support for earthquake victims through donations for a live auction, to be held from May 1st through May 10th on www.trademe.co.nz .  A smaller auction will be held on eBay.  All proceeds go to the New Zealand Red Cross.  Any contribution, large or small, will help accomodate quake victims.

“We are excited to help get the word out about the celebrity auction for the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake victims," says David Bellamy.  "Our hearts also go out to the folks in Japan and we hope to assemble a similar benefit for them in the very near future."

Please address all charitable donations to:

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.
Jerry is survived by his parents Craig and Karen Greer; his sister Marisa Davis, niece Bailey and nephew Jameson; his sister Alexandra Beaird, her husband Ryan and nephew Cruze; his brother Kyle Greer and his fiancé Chelsea Rogers; and his brother Wyat…

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…
