Garth Shows in Ireland MAY Not Happen!!!!

The cancellation of the five Garth Brooks concerts in Croke Park will see the Dublin publicans lose out on up to €15m in revenue, according to the Vintners Association. A decision will be made by Tuesday as to whether any of the planned concerts concerts will go ahead. The Licensed Vintners Association (LVA) has urged Dublin City Manager Eoin Keegan to reverse his decision not to allow two of the proposed five gigs to go ahead. Brooks, meanwhile, has given an "all five concerts or nothing" ultimatum. The LVA has said that Dublin “simply cannot afford” for the sell-out gigs not to go ahead. “This is still a very difficult economy for every business in the city and the Garth Brooks concerts promised a hugely significant financial boost for pubs and for the wider hospitality industry,” O’Keeffe, Chief Executive of the LVA said. “It is simply unbelievable that the City Manager who oversees a penal Commercial Rates and Water Charge regime for businesses in the City took the decision to cancel concerts that could help us afford the high charge regime.” The LVA said it is “appalled” by the turn of events and estimates that the loss of the five concerts could cost Dublin pubs as much as €15 million. O’Keeffe also added that in addition to publicans, the lost business was also bad news for the Exchequer who would stand to benefit from the sales boost through the concert series. “The City Manager should indicate early this week that he will reverse his decision and grant a licence for each of the five proposed concerts.”

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…
