WKML Country Notes 10/22
Cyrus, Billy Ray --- Billy Ray Cyrus, who's a member of the Parents Television
Council Advisory Board, is opposed to the organization's statement regarding that
racy Glee photo shoot for GQ magazine. The PTC has called the images "borderline
pedophilia." A source tells TMZ that Billy Ray believes the board is spending more
time attacking people than promoting family television. Billy Ray also butted heads
with the PTC over daughter Miley's video for "Who Owns My Heart."

Cyrus, Miley --- Miley Cyrus's relationship with on-again, off-again beau Liam
Hensworth is on again in a big way. In fact, sources say they're planning to walk
down the aisle. A pal of Miley's tells the National Enquirer, "[Her dad] is all for the
wedding...once she turns 18. He thinks the world of Liam and sees a lot of himself
in him. They're both extremely protective of Miley, and they both have her best
interests at heart." The friend says a spring wedding is in the works.

Hill. Faith --- Here are Faith Hill's picks for the weekend's NFL games.
Buffalo at Baltimore - Baltimore
Washington at Chicago - Washington
Cincinnati at Atlanta - Atlanta
Philadelphia at Tennessee - Tennessee
Pittsburgh at Miami - Pittsburgh
St. Louis at Tampa Bay - St. Louis
Cleveland at New Orleans - New Orleans
Jacksonville at Kansas City - Kansas City
San Francisco at Carolina - Carolina
Arizona at Seattle - Arizona
Oakland at Denver - Denver
New England at San Diego - New England
Minnesota at Green Bay - Minnesota
New York Giants at Dallas - New York

Keith, Toby --- Toby Keith has strong thoughts about bullying. “Yeah, bullying is
bad, but in my generation, my father wouldn‟t allow that to happen,” he told CNN.
“My father would say, „Do whatever you have to do to shut it down, you know.
Fight.‟ We would fight the bully. If you let the guy bully you every day at school, it‟s
going to continue to go. So it‟s better to take that ass-whooping the first day and
get it over with, and then they usually leave you alone.” Toby says that is advice
he‟s lived by throughout his life.

Lady Antebellum --- Lady Antebellum returned to the scene of their worst gig ever
on Wednesday, and things went much better this time around. Earlier this week, we
told you how when they were just starting out, they'd performed at a gas station on
the first day of deer season in Milwaukee. This time, more than a thousand people
showed up for their mini-concert, according to the Associated Press, erasing the
memories of that debacle.

McGraw, Tim --- Here are Tim McGraw's picks for the weekend's college football
Alabama at Tennessee - Alabama
South Carolina at Vanderbilt - South Carolina
Louisiana-Monroe at Middle Tennessee - MTSU
Tennessee Tech at TSU - TSU
LSU at Auburn - Auburn
Georgia Tech at Clemson - Clemson
Georgia at Kentucky - Kentucky
Wisconsin at Iowa - Iowa
Oklahoma at Missouri - Oklahoma
Nebraska at Oklahoma - Nebraska

Otto, James --- James Otto has been busy promoting his newest album, Shake
What God Gave You, so his time at home with new baby Ava is extra special. He
tells Nashville's Tennessean, "There are obviously incredibly cute moments. There
are more moments when you want to pull your hair out. It's like, 'I just changed
your diaper. Why is there more poop in this one? Where is all this coming from?'"
--- James will be far from the dirty diapers when he performs tonight in Estero,

Rucker, Darius --- Darius Rucker didn't rest on his laurels after the success of his
debut country album, Learn to Love. He says of his new release, Charleston, South
Carolina 1966, "This is the make-or-break record for me having a country career."
So far, so good -- the first single, "Come Back Song," is in the Top 5.

Sugarland --- The Country Music Association has announced that Sugarland's
Jennifer Nettles will host the CMA Country Christmas TV special. She says, "I love
the holidays, and as my first time hosting a show, I'm sure it will be full of laughs
and surprises for myself and for the folks watching." Kellie Pickler has also joined
the performance lineup. CMA Country Christmas airs on November 29th on ABC.

Swift, Taylor --- Taylor Swift doesn't talk about her personal life in interviews, but
in a webchat this summer, she confirmed that her upcoming album, Speak Now,
includes a lot about it. She adds that potential suitors should realize by now that
she's going to write songs about them. In the next issue of People she says, "This is
album number-three, so I figure these people have had fair warning."
--- Taylor Swift promoted next week's release of Speak Now to her British fans with
a live performance on BBC Radio's Great British Songbook. In addition to an
acoustic version of her hit single "Mine," she and two members of her band covered
Coldplay's "Viva La Vida."

Vassar, Phil --- Phil Vassar, born in Lynchburg, Virginia, moved to Nashville in
-Vassar has written chart-topping hits for Alan Jackson (“Right On the Money”), Tim
McGraw (“For A Little While”) and Jo Dee Messina (“I‟m Alright” and “Bye Bye”).
-His self-titled 2000 debut yielded the No. 1 single “Just Another Day in Paradise”
as well as the Top 10 hits “Carlene,” “Rose Bouquet,” “Six-Pack Summer” and
“That‟s When I Love You.”
-Vassar released “Shaken Not Stirred” in 2004. He released his “Greatest Hits, Vol.
1” in 2006.
-Vassar signed to Universal South Records in March 2007. His first single for the
label, “This Is My Life,” was released in mid-2007. The album “Prayer Of A Common
Man” appeared in 2008 and also housed the singles “Love Is a Beautiful Thing,” “I
Would,” and the title track.
-One week after “Prayer Of A Common Man” fell from the charts, Vassar charted his
18th single, “Bobbi with an I.” Released in April 2009, it was followed by
“Everywhere I Go.” Both songs are from his fifth album, “Traveling Circus,” which
came out last December. Vassar is currently touring behind the album.
-Phil Vassar will headline the second annual New Year‟s Eve “Bash on Broadway” in
downtown Nashville on December 31st.

Wayne, Jimmy --- Happy Birthday wishes to Jimmy Wayne, who celebrates his 38th
today. Before hiking from Nashville to Phoenix, Arizona this year to raise awareness
for homeless teens, he said one of the hardest things he's ever done is making it in
country music. But Jimmy has faced overcome numerous challenges, including his
own homelessness.

News of the Weird:
Guinness World Records has confirmed that a massive pumpkin grown in Wisconsin
is officially the world‟s heaviest. The gourd grown this year by Chris Stevens of New
Richmond tips the scales at 1,810.5 pounds, 85 pounds heavier than the previous
record, a 1,725-pound pumpkin grown last year in Ohio. Stevens‟ pumpkin has a
circumference of 186.5 inches, or more than 15 feet. When turned on its side, the
pumpkin is more than waist-high. Stevens said his secret is a precise mixture of
sunshine, rain, cow manure, fish emulsion and seaweed.

A California woman who befriended a homeless woman and let her sleep in her car
told police she didn‟t know where to turn when the woman died unexpectedly – so
she drive the body around for months along with a box of baking soda to cover up
the smell. Officers with the Costa Mesa police found the unidentified body Monday
after getting a call about a car blocking a driveway. When officers arrived, they
noticed a nasty odor and saw a leg poking out from behind a blanket and some
clothes. The partially mummified body consisted mostly of skin and bones and
weighed about 30 pounds. An autopsy showed no signs of foul play but police are
still investigating the car‟s driver. The woman had been dead for 10 months when
police found her.

An Eaton County, Michigan, couple claims they found a frozen frog in a package of
frozen vegetables. Marty Hoffman said she freaked when she found the amphibian
October 13th as she was preparing veggies for the family dog, who needs a special
diet because of allergies. After photographing the frog and sealing up the vegetable
bag, Marty‟s husband, Tim, called the Detroit office of the FDA, but received no
response. So he called the local newspaper to report the amphibian find. The paper
contacted the store, Meijer, who apologized and issued a recall. The Hoffmans say
they don‟t want any money, they just want to make other veggie lovers aware.

Legal services at one Manchester, Connecticut, firm can be as easy driving up to a
window and never getting out of the car. The Kocian Law Group has opened a
drive-thru office in a building that once housed a former Kenny Rogers Roasters
restaurant. Attorney Nick Kocian said clients can use the drive-thru to drop off and
pick up documents. A paralegal works the window, handing out documents and
answering questions. Consultations and meetings with lawyers will still be
scheduled for inside the office.

It‟s time now for Officer Don‟s Police Blotter:
A 26-year-old Joliet, Illinois, man was arrested after he impersonated a police
officer at a local McDonald's in order to get a discount on a hamburger. Andrew P.
Berkos displayed a piece of paper with a Department of Defense seal on it as proof
of his position. The employees didn't buy it and called the real cops. Berkos was
charged with impersonating a police officer.

Police in Marion, South Carolina, say a 10-year-old boy took a city work truck used
by the fire department on a joy ride through town. Officials said fire crews were
busy unloading a white pickup truck when the boy jumped in and took off. The kid
“was going up and down the street and headed home.” Along the way, he hit a
power pole, but was not hurt. He was eventually stopped by his mother not far
from their home. The boy was taken to juvenile hall and later released.

A Fort Pierce, Florida, man was arrested after he threw a corn dog covered in
mustard at his live-in girlfriend. 48-year-old Tommie Lee Mckeliver apparently got
angry at his girlfriend and threw a paper plate containing the corn dog into her
chest. He was charged with assault.

A Charlotte, North Carolina, teen who was kicked out of his high school for bringing
an exploding pen to school claims that he brought the device to use it as a prank.
The 16-year-old had been kicked out of previous high schools due to discipline
problems. The pen explosion injured one student and set off a huge investigation.
Quote of the day comes from the teen's grandmother: "I know he likes to
experiment with science things ... I guess that's what got him in trouble."

A man using a fake gun in a San Fernando Valley stickup was beaten to a pulp with
the prop weapon when the would-be victim took it from him. Police said the
attempted robbery suspect was whacked so bad he had to be hospitalized.

Police say an armed robber gave back everything he stole from a homeless man
after learning he lived at a shelter. Larry Sanderson, 22, was outside the York
Rescue Mission on Wednesday night when a man flashed the handle of a revolver
and told him to empty his pockets. Sanderson turned over his wallet, cell phone,
MP3 player and cigarettes. When the robber asked Sanderson if that was all he had,
Sanderson explained he lived at the shelter. Police say the robber replied, “I can
respect that,” and then returned the man‟s property and walked away.

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.”
Jamie Smith, Deputy Fire Chief, Elizabethtown Fire Department writes, Good
morning Don. A few things I have learned that I tell people daily are
"happiness is a choice. You have to decide to be happy yet there will always be
something or someone trying to ruin it for you. You must decide to not
let that negative person or thing ruin your life for you. All it takes is a slight
negative gesture to ruin someone‟s day and I don‟t know about you but
I love a positive atmosphere. Another one is “think of life as a football game. You
can either sit on the sidelines and let life pass you by or you can get on the field
and play ball and make great things happen in your life." That‟s just a few. THANK
YOU Jamie for those AWESOME Secrets 2 Success. Like Jamie, you may have a
Secret 2 Success. Please send it to me.
Our motto is “Expect Great Things To Happen.”
That‟s your “WKML Don Chase Secret 2 Success,” a service of Bible Alive Ministries.

BASEBALL --- The Phillies aren't going that easily. On the brink of elimination last
night, Philadelphia beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2 in Game 5 of the National
League Championship Series. Phils ace Roy Halladay didn't pitch his best game,
but it was good enough to hold the Giants to two runs over six innings.
Offensively, the Phillies scored three runs in a wacky third inning that included a
Halladay bunt that appeared to be a foul ball, but was called fair, and Shane
Victorino's hard-hit grounder, which ricocheted off Aubrey Huff's glove into center
field, allowing two runs to score. The two teams will meet again in Game 6 on
Saturday with the Giants up three games to two.

The Rangers and Yankees meet in Game 6 of the American League Championship
Series tonight in Texas with the Rangers up 3-2.

NASCAR --- What is going on at George Gillett's Richard Petty Motorsports? The
assembly line from Roush Fenway Racing and Roush Yates engines has stopped
running to RPM. Engines have been picked up, cars have been repossessed, and
sources on both sides -- RPM and RFR -- say no cars will be delivered beyond
Martinsville this weekend. On Thursday morning, crewmen at RPM were told they
may not have jobs after the race at Martinsville Speedway this weekend. Neither
Petty team CEO Foster Gillett nor team Vice President Robbie Loomis could be
reached for comment. Sources say that a number of Richard Petty Motorsports
employees who had planned to join Kasey Kahne at Red Bull Racing next year were
told my management yesterday that their services are no longer required, effective
Kasey Kahne was released from Richard Petty Motorsports on Wednesday night,
clearing the way for him to join Red Bull Racing for the final five races of the

Reports that Marcos Ambrose would come to Richard Petty Motorsports to get an
early start on his 2011 contact are premature, according to Tad Geschickter,
Ambrose's current owner at JTG/Daugherty Racing.

Victory Junction announced that it will feature a public open house in conjunction
with Randleman's NASCAR Days on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 10:00am-4:00pm.
Headlining the day's festivities is a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:30pm honoring the
grand opening of Dale Jr.'s Corral and Amphitheatre, with special guests Dale
Earnhardt Jr. and members of the Earnhardt and Petty families.

You'll need multiple TVs to keep up with all the great college football games
tomorrow. Conference competition is in full swing!
-First an update on Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand, who was injured in
Saturday's game against Army and is paralyzed. Eric underwent surgery over the
weekend and remains sedated, according to Scarlet Knights coach Greg
Schiano says they'll release updates as his condition changes.
-The battle of the undefeateds -- number-six LSU is at number-four Auburn
Saturday afternoon. LSU plays two quarterbacks, but they'll have to keep War
Eagle's QB Cam Newton off the field. This will be LSU's toughest game this season.
-Nebraska won't be seeing red when they face-off with Oklahoma State Saturday
afternoon. The Cowboys are undefeated in the Big 12 and have home-field
advantage, but don't underestimate the Huskers' freshman quarterback, Taylor
-It's a classic rivalry in Knoxville, Tennessee when Alabama goes up against the
Vols Saturday evening. Alabama's unexpected hit two weeks ago from South
Carolina showed a weak defense, so it's all about keeping Mark Ingram, Trent
Richardson and Julio Jones on the field for the Tide to take a victory.
-Ready for some old-school Big Ten football? Wisconsin is at Iowa Saturday
afternoon. The Badgers' offensive line is one of the largest in college football, and
Wisky is riding high after beating Ohio State last weekend. But don't count the
Hawkeyes out -- they slaughtered Penn State last weekend.
-It's been 12 years since Missouri beat Oklahoma, but with a banner season well
under way and the Sooners' perch at number-one rather precarious, this could be
their year. Both teams are undefeated, and both have strong defensive lines and
quick-strike offenses.

The Apprentice --- On last night's episode of The Apprentice...
-The teams were challenged to create a pedicab tour. They had to get their
licenses, design a tour, sell it -- and even do some pedaling. Kelly was the project
manager for the women. Anand was manager for the men.
-The men came up with the idea of turning the rides into Roman chariots. David
was the holdout. The women donned skimpy outfits and tried to pitch "babes on
bikes" to Wall Street bankers.
-The women made $320. The men made $950. Anand won a meeting with Chuck
Davis, CEO of Fandango.
-In the board room, Donald Trump faulted Kelly for the location choice, and told
her, "You're fired."

TMZ caught Lindsay Lohan leaving the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage,
California last night in preparation for her court appointment this morning. Li-Lo is
scheduled to face the judge this morning at 8:30. It's possible she'll be heading
back to jail.

Mel Gibson's comeback is over before it started. The troubled star was set to make
a cameo in The Hangover 2, but it's been axed after the cast objected to including
mad Mel in the film, despite the fact the studio gave Gibson the green light.
Director Todd Phillips told People, "I thought Mel would have been great in the
movie. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately
did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew."

Now that boyfriend Eric Johnson has finalized his divorce, In Touch Weekly reports
that Jessica Simpson is making plans for a wedding. The mag quotes a friend of
the former NFL player as saying he's "started shopping for an engagement ring,
since he's going to propose over Christmas -- if he can wait that long." A rep for
Jess brushed off the report, telling Gossip Cop "they are not rushing into anything."

Reese Witherspoon's publicist is denying reports that she and her boyfriend-agent
Jim Toth are engaged.

Conan O'Brien has announced his first-week guests for his new TBS show, debuting
November 8th. Seth Rogen and Jack White will appear on the first show with the

FREEDOM OF SPEECH --- Conservatives are lashing out at National Public Radio for
firing news analyst Juan Williams for saying he's nervous when flying alongside
Muslims. Williams made the comment on Fox News alongside Bill O'Rielly, who
created a controversy with somewhat similar remarks about Muslims during a guest
appearance on The View. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich is so up in
arms about the situation he's called for congress to investigate NPR and says it
should "consider cutting off their money." Gingrich called the termination of
Williams "an act of total censorship."

Finding Felons In Your Family --- According to, one in eight
Americans has a felon in their family tree. If you‟re curious whether any of your
ancestors did time for a crime, has posted a collection of nearly
75,000 records of prisoners from the nation‟s most infamous U.S. penitentiaries,
including McNeil Island, Alcatraz and Leavenworth, among others. The prison record
collection spans 1875 to 1963 and even includes photo ID cards of nearly 3,500
inmates who did time in McNeil Island. If your ancestor served time at one of these
institutions, they could easily have rubbed elbows with some of America‟s well-
known criminals also found in the collection, including Al Capone and Robert
Stroud, known as “The Birdman of Alcatraz.” This collection also reveals other
notable facts about our nation‟s criminal past, including:
-Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Mississippi and Oklahoma top the list of “worst-
behaved” states. The “best-behaved” states include Maine, Minnesota, North
Dakota, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
-Some of the most common offenses perpetrated by the inmates included bank and
postal robbery, which were most common in maximum-security facilities. Mail
fraud, IRS law violations and counterfeiting topped offenses of those in medium-
security facilities.
-From the late 1870s through the mid 1900s, if you committed a felony your
chances of going to the slammer were about 1 in 10, surprisingly comparable to
-The average length of sentence that an inmate served was nearly 2 1/2 years.
