and their daytime telephone number. THANXXX! Don.

News of the Weird: It’s time now for Officer Don’s Police Blotter, a service of
“Holmes Security Systems…If you’re paying more than $18.95 for monitoring you’re
paying too much.” Wait A Minute Mr. Robber -- Don't I Know You? In Erie,
Pennsylvania, a man who was robbed of his jacket, cell phone, keys and $300 was
left with the strange feeling that one of his two muggers looked awfully familiar.
That would be because they went to school together about 15 years ago. Police
arrested 30-year-old Anthony Williams after the victim pulled out some old
yearbooks and figured out they both attended Central Career and Technical School
in the mid-1990s.

There's an old postal carrier's motto that says something about neither rain, nor
sleet, nor snow, nor hail will prevent the mail from being delivered. Notice it doesn't
say anything about being three times the legal limit. In Boynton Beach, Florida, 29-
year-old mail carrier Kevin Crocilla was found slumped over the wheel of his mail
truck. Someone called police thinking there was a medical problem or perhaps he
was dead. No medical problem and no -- not dead. Just very, very drunk. When
police asked him to step outside of his truck, he stumbled and had trouble
completing a sobriety test because he couldn't keep his eyes open or his head
straight. He blew a .264 on the Breathalyzer test -- over three times the legal limit
allowed while driving -- and police charged him with driving under the influence.

It's an order of road rage -- with ranch dressing on the side. Tiffany M. Wallace is
pleading guilty to ramming her pickup into a car, then throwing ranch dressing at it.
The 18-year-old entered her plea in an Iowa courtroom this week as part of a deal
with prosecutors. Wallace is to be sentenced Dec. 11 on a charge of aggravated
battery. The Idaho Statesman reports the driver of the other car told police he was
cut off twice by Wallace. He says she also threw coins and plastic containers of
ranch dressing at his car. The victim adds that Wallace rammed her truck into his
car at least three times in a parking lot..

In Pembrey, England, Tony and Aimee West went all out for their wedding cake.
They paid $500 bucks for what was supposed to be a three tier sponge cake
decorated with white and dark chocolate icing and flowers. But just four hours
before the evening reception was due to start Aimee discovered the cake company
had forgotten to bake the cake. Aimee said, "They admitted their mistake and said,
'Don't worry, we'll get you a cake'. They turned up that evening and the cake was
put on a table for all to see." All seemed to be well until the couple cut into the cake
and took their first bites together. Turns out the "cake" was no cake at all. Just a
bunch of Styrofoam covered with icing. Both bride and groom began choking -- an
experience Aimee said was terribly embarrassing! So they took Creative Cakes to
small claims court and were awarded $600 compensation. Karen Williams, who runs
Creative Cakes said, "I explained I would be delivering an artificial cake - they are
quite common at weddings these days.

Welcome to today’s “WKML Don Chase Secret 2 Success,” a service of Bible Alive
Ministries. Dr. Ralph Richardson, teacher.
Our motto is “Expect Great Things To Happen.”
Today’s question is “who do you ask?”
If you need medical advice, you find a doctor, nurse or pharmacist, right?
What about financial advice? A banker, a financial planner might be an idea.
What if you win that lottery?
What about goal-setting? Who do you ask? Simple. Find a successful person and
ask them. You may be surprised to find how eager they are to help.
Do whatever it takes to move you closer to reaching your dreams and goals.
Our motto is “Expect Great Things To Happen.”

This week marks National Truck Driver Appreciation Week
A soldier opened fire at a U.S. Army base in Fort Hood, Texas, yesterday,
unleashing a stream of gunfire that left 12 people dead and 31 wounded.
Authorities killed the gunman, and apprehended two other soldiers suspected in
what appears to be the worst mass shooting at a U.S. military base. The shooting
began about 1:30pm Lt. Gen. Bob Cone said at a news conference. He said all the
casualties took place at the base's Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers who
are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening. "It's a
terrible tragedy. It's stunning," Cone said.

Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker talked life and football with wounded
soldiers on Fort Bragg. The former NFL running back out of the University of
Georgia teased one Longhorns fan, telling him to be proud because "Texas got a
good (marching) band." But Walker - who has struggled with multiple personalities
- had a serious message for the troops as well. "A lot of times things don't go
right," Walker said. "And there's no shame in admitting you have a problem."

Life hasn't always been easy for 4-year-old Bryce Tory, a Simi Valley youngster
born with a congenital heart defect. Bryce is all smiles. He learned his ultimate
wish, he will get to meet his favorite professional race car driver Sunday, Dale
Earnhardt Jr. The wish was granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Tri-
Counties.. Yesterday, the family was given a police and firefighter escort as they
left their home for the airport. Once in Texas, they will catch a helicopter ride to
the racetrack to meet NASCAR driver Earnhardt Jr.

AJ Allmendinger makes his Ford Racing debut this weekend at Texas Motor
Speedway. The Richard Petty Motorsports driver will race the remaining three races
of the 2009 season in a Ford Fusion. Race fans will recognize the familiar "Petty
Blue" and red paint scheme on #44 for the rest of the season.

The pressure is on in the #48 pit. To win this year's points championship, Jimmie
Johnson needs to finish 10th or better in the three remaining races.

The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup is down to three races to go and this
weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort
Worth for 500 miles on Sunday. Flag-to-flag coverage of the Dickies 500 begins at
on the BIG 957 WKML.

A woman in South Korea who tried to pass the written exam for a driver’s license
finally succeeded on her 950th attempt. The woman began taking the test in April
2005. She would take the test nearly every day, and each time she was told she
flunked. Cha Sa-soon, 68, spent more than $4,200 in application fees, but until now
had failed to score the minimum 60 out of a possible 100 points needed to get her
license. She finally passed on Wednesday, scoring 60.

The two pilots of a Northwest Airlines flight who overshot the Minneapolis airport by
150 miles and then had their licenses revoked are appealing the revocations with
the National Transportation Safety Board. An NTSB spokesman said that “there is
no argument or defense” included in the appeals. A hearing before an
administrative judge usually occurs within 120 days of an appeal filing. Last week,
government regulators revoked the licenses of Tim Cheney and Richard Cole. The
pair said they lost their bearings during an October 21st flight while discussing
company policy and using their laptops. They were 35,000 feet over Wisconsin
when a flight attendant alerted them that they needed to hit the brakes and turn
the plane around. The incident nearly got them blown out of the sky because
officials on the ground were unable to raise them on their radio. Fighter jets at two
locations were ready to scramble and intercept the plane.

It looks like Microsoft may have redeemed itself after bombing with Windows Vista.
The company’s new-generation Windows 7 operating system hit the ground
running, with U.S. sales in its opening days blasting past those of its predecessor,
according to NPD Group. Sales of Windows 7 in the days following its October 22nd
release were 234% higher than those posted by Vista when it was released. It
appears Microsoft learned a lesson after Vista bombed – and often crashed. The
newest version has been getting rave reviews from analysts, thanks in large part to
Microsoft’s working closely with computer makers, users and software developers
while creating Windows 7. Among the new features is a redesigned taskbar for
launching programs and switching windows, enhanced ability to share files with
other PCs, improved photo and video editing software and the ability to stream
digital music or video to other devices. Windows 7 also features Microsoft’s latest
Web browser, Internet Explorer 8.

New York City will host a ticker-tape parade and ceremony in honor of the World
Series champion New York Yankees. The parade, scheduled for today, will begin on
Broadway at Battery Place at 11 a.m. The Yankees beat the Phillies 4-2 in the
series. Fans had waited nine years since the team’s previous World Series title, a
Subway Series against crosstown rivals, the Mets, in 2000.

WKML Country Notes 11/6
Brooks & Dunn --- Brooks and Dunn have been rocking it on the road for 20 years
and now die-hard fans can rock it B-and-D style with the new Toyota Midnight Rider
Tundra Tailgater. The one-of-a-kind pick-up was created in celebration of the duo's
farewell tour next year. It features a pull-out grill and cooler with a cooking area,
keg tap, ice chest and infrared barbecue, as well as a 42-inch flat screen T-V and a
sound system. It also includes a customized Brooks and Dunn license plate, silver
"western" engraved door handle surrounds and black leather seats. Additional
information and photos of the prototype are available at

Covington, Bucky --- Happy Birthday to Bucky Covington, who turns 32 on Sunday.
He doesn't have any memories of his and brother Rocky's original birth day, but his
dad sure does. Bucky tells us, "My dad told me, the nurse comes up and goes, 'Well
sir, what would you like to have? A boy or girl?' He goes, 'Well, honestly, I've got a
little girl. A little boy would be great!' She goes, 'Well, congratulations! You have
two of them.”

Johnson, Jamie --- Jamey Johnson was the surprise musical guest at Matthew
McConaughey's 40th birthday party this week. Apparently, McConaughey is a big
fan of the Alabama country boy. Matthew blogged on his MySpace page, "My
family, closest friends and I celebrated last night with a surprise performance by
one of my favorite artists, Jamey Johnson... There were some epic stories told, lot
of laughs and definitely some roasting.”
--- Jamey is back to his regular tour dates now with a show tonight in Tacoma,
Keith, Toby --- Look for Toby Keith's daughter Krystal to start a recording career in
the near future. Toby tells us that while he doesn't get called on very much to write
for other artists, he'll start collaborating with Krystal -- who graduated from
Oklahoma University this past May -- on songs for her debut album "real soon.

Pickler, Kellie --- Look for petite Kellie Pickler to be wielding a hammer in Sunday
night's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Kellie says it's much more emotional to
be a part of the show than it is to watch it on T-V, but it got even more personal
when she met the family. She tells us, "After you talk to them and you really get to
see who they are and what they're about, you just become so much more attached
to them and you just really want to make this home the best it can be.” Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition airs Sunday night at 8:00 p-m [ET] on A-B-C.

Osmond, Marie --- Marie Osmond is embroiled in a court battle with a former
manager who is demanding $88,000 in commission after she fired him. Osmond’s
legal team claims P. Karl Engemann, who managed the star for 35 years, was let go
on October 23rd for allegedly acting “in an inappropriate, improper manner and
breaching his fiduciary duty to Marie.” Engemann, whose daughter Shawn is
married to TV host Larry King, filed a lawsuit alleging he helped set up Marie’s
lucrative Las Vegas shows with her brother Donny. Engemann filed a demand for
arbitration on October 27th.

Owen, Jake --- Don't forget to visit as Jake Owen hosts the countdown to
country music's biggest night -- the C-M-A Awards. The video segments began
Wednesday and are posted nightly. Jake, who is nominated for New Artist and will
present at the C-M-A Awards, takes viewers on a virtual tour of Nashville and its
hotspots, and let's people into the behind-the-scenes activities. The segments air
through November 12th.

Rogers, Kenny --- Kenny Rogers will once again embark on his annual Christmas
tour, starting November 27th in Bossier City, Louisiana and wrapping up on
December 23rd in Westbury, New York. Joining Kenny for the holiday festivities will
be Rebecca Lynn Howard.

Underwood, Carrie --- Being a vegetarian and keeping a food journal aren't the only
things Carrie Underwood does to keep fit. She tells Parade, "If I can get on a bike
or the treadmill for 30 minutes, I think better, I speak better -- I'm a happier
person. Regular exercise helps me sleep, too." Carrie's personal fitness goal -- "If
I'm 80 and I have abs, I'll be happy.” Watch for Carrie to be showing off her great
body in as many as nine dazzling dresses during Wednesday's C-M-A Awards, airing
at 8:00 p-m [ET] on A-B-C.
Yearwood, Trisha --- Trisha Yearwood's next cookbook, Home Cooking With Trisha
Yearwood, will hit stores April 6th. Co-written with her mother Gwen and sister
Beth Yearwood Bernard, the book includes 125 new recipes they solicited from
aunts, uncles and cousins. Trisha tells us, "We said we weren't going to put
anything in the book that we didn't make. So we've spent the last few months
testing 125 recipes and eating a lot. It's been really good.” New dishes in the book
include Garth's Breakfast Bowl, Cowboy Lasagna and Grandma Yearwood's Coconut
Cake. Check out a picture of the book's cover can be seen on Trisha's MySpace
