Miranda Raises Big Bucks for the Dogs

MIRANDA LAMBERT RAISED OVER $600,000 FOR 7TH ANNUAL “CAUSE FOR THE PAWS” EVENT BENEFITTING MUTTNATION FOUNDATION
MUTTNATION FOUNDATION’S FIRST OWNED AND OPERATED SHELTER, “REDEMPTION RANCH” TO OPEN NOVEMBER 22ND IN OKLAHOMA LOS ANGELES, CA --- Grammy® winner and dog ‘mother’ to seven rescue dogs, Miranda Lambert, has donated proceeds from her show at the Route 91 Harvest Festival to her 7th annual charity event, “Cause for the Paws,” to benefit her beloved MuttNation Foundation. The event brought in a total of $628,148, which is put to good use in helping furry friends all across the country. “I always have a great time in Vegas, but being able to save dogs along the way was probably the best,” Miranda said. “Getting to do what I love and help the cause that’s closest to my heart, and do it in Vegas; it doesn’t get any better. With the money raised, I am looking forward to seeing lots of dogs find loving forever homes through adoption.” The Route 91 Harvest Festival was held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on October 3rd, 4th and 5th, and featured fellow superstar headliners, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean. This year's “Cause for the Paws” event included a sold out VIP cocktail party; complete with a live and silent auction with items from Blake Shelton, Miranda, Live Nation and MGM Resorts (which raised more than $60,000). There was also an online eBay auction. MNF co-founder, Bev Lambert explains, “Miranda and I were a bit apprehensive about moving the 7th Annual Cause For The Paws from our homes states of Texas and Oklahoma into Las Vegas. As our long time sponsors signed on in record time and the tickets for the 1st Harvest Festival began to sell out we started to feel like this year may indeed be worthy of the name - Lucky 7! We stand amazed at the support that her fans, friends and sponsors continue to show as they join hands with us to help shelter pets across the US. We both continue our pledge to be watchful over every penny donated.” The money raised from “Cause for the Paws” will be used for a variety of initiatives throughout the coming year including to finish work on and fund Redemption Ranch, the first MuttNation Foundation owned and operated shelter, which will be opening in Tishomingo, OK on November 22nd. In addition, on Sunday, October 26th starting at noon MuttNation Foundation will partner with the Humane Society of Tulsa to host their FIRST Muttoberfest (at 6232 E. 60th Street in Tulsa, OK). Over 100 dogs and cats (all of whom have been vaccinated, tested and spayed and neutered) rescued by MuttNation Foundation will be available for adoption. MNF will also be continuing their very successful Mutts Across America: 50 States/50 Shelters initiative. Operating under the premise that fans, friends, colleagues and benefactors across the US have sown into MuttNation Foundation, last year they selected a shelter in each of the 50 states to lend a financial hand and will do so again this year. They will also continue their support for Pets Fur People (petsfurpeople.org), which is the former home of Miranda’s first shelter pet, Delilah, and the start of Cause For The Paws in Tyler, TX. MuttNation Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization and all contributions are 100% tax deductible; it has raised over $1.5 M the past seven years. To donate please visit: www.MuttNationFoundation.com. Miranda and her mother, Bev, make every effort to ensure that your hard-earned dollars are going to spay and neuter efforts, medical treatments, adoptions, preventions, transportation, legislative changes, and education. By contributing, you are making a difference to end animal cruelty, neglect, and homelessness.

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…
