MARTINA MCBRIDE FANS RAISE OVER $22,000 TO FIGHT BREAST CANCER



Nashville, TN (The Martina McBride Fan Club) Oct 27, 2011 - Martina McBride
Fan Club members inspired by her current release, "I'm Gonna Love You Through It",
gathered in Nashville, TN, on Oct 15 to walk for the cause of breast cancer research.

Fan club members from around the country united during the months of August and
September to train and walk in The American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against
Breast Cancer 5 Mile Walk", which happened at L.P. Field. They were joined by breast
cancer survivors from the video for Martina's song, which is about a young woman newly
diagnosed with breast cancer. Some 18,000 were estimated to have participated in the walk.

Members of the team included Taira Baughman, from Mt. Juliet, TN, who is a breast cancer
survivor and mother of four children. The team was organized and led by captains Sheila Jones
and Amy Schmidlein and by Martina McBride Fan Club Director, Tracy Weaver.

The team exceeded their fundraising goal of $11,111.11, in honor of McBride's newly released
album entitled "Eleven". John and Martina McBride in turn matched the team's effort.
The team raised a grand total of $22,383.19 to help The American Cancer Society's breast cancer
research programs and services.

In honor of the team's effort to reach their fundraising goal, three team members, including one
woman, shaved their heads to show unity with those suffering from cancer. The team can be

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 The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time.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…

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…
