Don. News of the Weird: A 23-year-old woman was arrested after a scuffle with a 13-year-old boy in a wheelchair at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas. Mikka Shardai Cline was charged with injury to a child in connection with the struggle over a soccer ball on Tuesday night. The boy’s uncle told police that he was trying to retrieve the ball, which he had bought for the boy, from a bush on hospital grounds. The woman and her sister were also trying to get the ball. Police said the woman tried to grab the ball and swung her fist toward the boy, who had a pre-surgical medical halo screwed into his skull. It wasn’t clear whether she was deliberately trying to hit the boy or trying to knock the ball from his lap. Police said the woman’s first swing missed, but her second struck the boy’s halo, causing him pain. The woman was being held in jail on $1,500 bail. Authorities in Cincinnati have labeled Bennie Crabtree the most-arrested man in the county. Records show he has been arrested 146 times since 1998, when Hamilton County’s record-keeping system was updated. Veteran police officers said he was arrested many more times in the decades before that. Crabtree’s record includes criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct and theft. Police say he steals food and intrudes in places such as the University of Cincinnati, hospitals and businesses. He’s never done anything serious enough to be sent to prison. Because of jail overcrowding, he’s now often released hours after arrest. Police say the 61-year-old man has lived mostly on the streets and has some mental problems. A social worker says Crabtree is just lonely. Every wedding day is special, but Adam and Julie Hatfield of La Crosse, Wisconsin will have some extra special memories about the day they said "I do!" The bride and groom were in La Crosse's Riverside Park posing for photos just before the ceremony, when they heard a man yelling "Allie! Allie!" They turned to see a man looking over the wall at the Mississippi River below. Then he jumped in. The man's daughter had apparently fallen into the river and he was attempting to save her. That's when Adam sprung into action, jumped over the wall and got down near the water where the man was treading water with the girl in his arms. With the help of the photographer, he pulled both to safety. Adam shook hands with the man but never did learn his name as he had to rush off to the wedding. Later, the best man incorporated the rescue into his toast, coining the phrase "save a life, get a wife." (Winona Daily News) 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.” In Fort Myers, Florida, 21-year-old Yunet Linares went into the McDonald's where her mother happens to work and ordered some food. However, apparently they got her order wrong and when Yunet went to complain to employee William Russell an argument ensued and Yunet slapped Russell in the face! Russell then grabbed Yunet and pushed her against the wall in self-defense. Her mother, Maria Figueredo, then got in on the action and attacked Russell from behind, hitting him in the head. Police then got there and arrested Ms. Linares. Amazingly her mother was not arrested because police say she didn't see the initial slap and thought she was coming to the aid of her daughter. And by the way -- would you like fries with that? (Naples News) Welcome to today’s “WKML Don Chase Secret 2 Success,” a service of Bible Alive Ministries. Dr. Ralph Richardson, teacher.

When does school begin --- Traditional school year classes in Cumberland, Robeson, Bladen, Sampson, Columbus, Hoke & Scotland Counties begin August 25. Harnett County schools begin Wednesday, August 26. Residents of Gates Four learned yesterday that they soon may become part of the City of Fayetteville. A Cumberland County Superior Court judge cleared the way for annexation. DuPont announced that it will expand its Fayetteville Works plant with a $55 million investment to make components in solar panels. The plant is one of two chosen for DuPont's $120 million initiative to boost production of its Tedlar film products. The films are used in the protective backsheets of photovoltaic solar panels. These panels convert light into electric power. In major league baseball, the Braves beat the Mets 3-2. Memphis will be forced to vacate its NCAA-record 38-victory, Final Four season of 2007-08 under former coach John Calipari and serve three years' probation because of NCAA rules violations, the NCAA Committee on Infractions announced Thursday. The NCAA in May accused Memphis of several major infractions under Calipari, including a fraudulent SAT score by a player, later revealed to be Derrick Rose, and providing close to $1,700 in free travel to Rose's brother, Reggie. In NASCAR, Rusty Wallace Racing says they will make a significant 2010 announcement of Friday afternoon at Bristol Motor Speedway concerning its 2010 NASCAR racing programs. The most exciting ride in Kings Dominion's 35-year history will debut in the spring of 2010, as the amusement park introduces a mammoth 5,100-foot long steel Giga-coaster. Intimidator 305 takes it name from one of stock car racing's most beloved and tenacious drivers, Dale Earnhardt, "the Intimidator" along with the height of the coaster's lift hill, 305 feet. Intimidator 305, only the second Giga-coaster ever built in North America, will be the tallest and fastest roller coaster of its type on the East Coast. Richard Petty Motorsports driver Elliott Sadler and the #19 Stanley Dodge now have a million more reasons to win the Aug. 22 race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Primary sponsor Stanley will make a $1 million donation to Children's Miracle Network if Sadler wins. Let’s go racing at Bristol for the Sharpie 500. Coverage begins at 6:30 Saturday night.

High School Football begins tonight: Cape Fear plays Hoke County Douglas Byrd takes on South View Fairmont at Grays Creek Jack Britt plays East Wake Pine Forest at Lumberton Purnell Swett & E.E. Smith Scotland County & 71st Westover at Terry Sanford The popular cash-for-clunkers program will end Monday night. While the program has tremendously boosted the auto industry's sagging sales, the slow gears of government in getting those 45-hundred-dollar checks out has given many dealerships the squeeze. The federal government estimates that some 700-thousand new cars have moved off the lots as a result of the program, which started at the beginning of July. Lydia was evicted on last night's Big Brother. But before we got the news: --- There was some dirty talk. Natalie and Lydia compared notes on their hookups with the now-evicted meatheaded Jessie, who has been dubbed "Mister Pectacular." Kevin reminded the girls that Jessie's hooking up with them was just a strategy to gain their trust. We also found out that Natalie has a boyfriend back home who watches the show. Wonder how he liked her hookup with meathead. --- There was some plotting. Natalie, Lydia and Kevin hatched a plan to turn Jeff and household-head Jordan against Russell. The ruse, that Russell was overheard plotting to evict Jeff next week, may actually work despite Kevin's bad acting. --- But we learn that Kevin's acting didn't work at the eviction. Russell, Michele and Jeff cast the deciding votes to evict Lydia. Kevin voted to kick out Natalie. Michael Jackson will have wait a little longer to be laid to rest. Papa Joe Jackson says Michael's burial is being postponed two days. Joe tells T-M-Z that the family needs to get some things in order before Jacko can be buried. The pop icon is now expected to be buried on August 31st. He was set to be laid to rest on August 29th, which would have been his 51st birthday. There's also been a change in plans for the Jackson movie This Is It. The behind-the-scenes look at the performer's doomed 50-date concert tour will be released for a limited, two-week engagement worldwide, according to TheWrap-dot-com. It's also been bumped up two days and will come out on October 28 th. A South African runner's gender is coming under question after she posted the fastest time of the year in winning the women's 800 meters at the world track and field championships in Berlin, Germany. Caster Semenya posted a time of one-minute, 55-seconds -- finishing two seconds ahead of the defending world champion. But Semenya's physique at 18 has raised eyebrows that she could genetically be a man. While she was defended by her coach and her father, the International Association of Athletic Federations director of communications, Nick Davies, called the incident "a medical issue. It's not an issue of cheating.” --- Meanwhile, Jamaica's Usain Bolt, who no one is accusing of being a woman, yesterday set another world record in the men's 200 meter, shaving 11-hundredths of a second off the world record he held -- coming in at 19-point-19 seconds. Johnny Depp and Halle Berry have been named the sexiest stars alive and George Clooney the Most Distinguished Looking Gentleman in a new poll by Parade magazine.

(R) Swine Flu Survival Kit: As the U.S. prepares for a possible second wave of the swine flu, as well as for the annual seasonal flu, a new report from Consumer Reports helps households prepare for, prevent, and treat flu symptoms safely and effectively, including recommendations for what to pack in an emergency kit for a flu outbreak. The report is available in the September 2009 issue of Consumer Reports and online at www.ConsumerReportsHealth.org. In case the second wave of swine flu is severe enough to warrant home confinement, consumers should pack an emergency kit in advance. Here’s what you’ll need: ·A two-week supply of food and water. ·Fever reducers, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen. ·Cough and cold medications containing chlorpheniramine, diphenhydramine, oxymetazoline and pseudoephedrine. Lozenges with dyclonine, glycerin or honey can help ease symptoms as well. ·Electrolyte drinks such as Gatorade or Powerade to keep you hydrated. ·Hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to kill viruses when soap and water aren’t available. ·Surgical masks with an FDA rating of at least N-95 to help prevent spreading the flu. Masks need to be replaced often and disposed of after use. ·For all emergencies, Consumer Reports recommends packing at least three days’ worth of nonperishable food; at least one gallon of water per person, per day; a first-aid kit that includes any prescription or over-the-counter medications your family might need; as well as antihistamines for allergic reactions, pain relievers, stomach and anti-diarrhea remedies, and antacids. The government is currently preparing a vaccine against the swine flu that will likely be recommended for school-age children and other high-risk individuals, such as pregnant women, those with chronic illness, and those who live or work with infants, preschoolers or older adults. In the meantime, Consumer Reports recommends that everyone – especially high-risk people – get vaccinated against seasonal flu before December. WKML Country Notes 08/21 Chesney, Kenny --- Susan Mazer claims Kenny Chesney snatched her camera’s memory card as she was taking pictures during a concert in Foxborough, Massachusetts. “(Chesney) was like a person in front of me and he reached down, grabs the camera, shuts it, goes down the walkway and throws it on the stage,” Mazer told Boston’s WCVB-TV. She said the camera was returned, but the memory card, containing photos from her family vacation, was missing. Although video cameras are banned at Gillette Stadium, the concert’s venue, Mazer insists that she was only taking still pictures of last Saturday’s show. Currington, Billy --- Before Billy Currington's performance on the Late Show With David Letterman, Dave compared Billy's hit, "People Are Crazy," to Michaelangelo's famous David sculpture. "When I first heard it, it reminded me of the time when I first saw Michaelangelo's David... This song is absolute perfection. You're not going to do any better than this song right here. And if I were the people running country music, I would shut it down now.” Houser, Randy --- Randy Houser has a huge fan in Reba McEntire. She's Twittered about how much she loves his music and even mentioned him in her video chat with her fans. "The latest album I have downloaded is Randy Houser. If you haven't gotten his album, it's incredible." Randy is getting set to hit the road with his buddy Jamey Johnson on the C-M-T this fall. Jewel --- Jewel has announced her fall tour schedule, which kicks off October 27th in Baltimore. Tonight she's in her home state of Alaska for a show at the Atwood Concert Hall in Anchorage. Lady Antebellum --- Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott documented her first love in the band's song "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," and even though the relationship didn't last, she has a nice memory when she sings it. She tells Detroit's Free Press, "It's the kid in me, but with the accordion, all I can think of is the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp. --- Hillary, Charles and Dave join Miranda Lambert and Kenny Chesney for a show in Detroit tomorrow (Saturday) night. Lambert, Miranda --- Miranda Lambert channels an unexpected performer when she takes the stage every night -- Beyonce. Ran tells us, "I copy everything she does besides dancing because I'm pretty white. I'm not even ashamed of it, because everyone great took from someone else great." She got to see the R-and-B superstar in Dallas last month and met her backstage. In her blog, Miranda writes, "She was so nice and very soft spoke. I think I said like 100 words in one minute though. We had a blast and the show was unbelievable.” --- Look for Miranda to pull out her own bootylicious moves when she opens for Kenny Chesney tomorrow night in Detroit. McEntire, Reba --- Reba McEntire did a video chat on YouTube this week and answered fans questions about her new album, her most embarrassing moment, her favorite artists and whether she'd ever do Dancing With the Stars, among other things. She said Dancing With the Stars would be out of the question because it's too much work; she loves Randy Houser and Taylor Swift; and her most embarrassing moment had her crawling off the stage in the dark. "We were supposed to do our last song and the lights go off and then we go off stage. As I was shuffling off stage, my feet hung onto the monitor and fell over the monitor and crawled off stage and ripped my britches.” Pets & Country Stars --- Country stars are always talking about their pets. Nowadays artists Tweet about their cats and dogs, but some have even put their pets on their album covers. --- Probably the most famous dog in country music is Dierks Bentley's dog Jake, who appears on the cover of his debut album. Jake is known to be very protective of the family's baby, Evie Bentley, even biting guests who get too close. Dierks also has a beagle-mutt named George. --- Kellie Pickler basically owns a small zoo, with a Chihuahua named Moo Moo, a cat named Pickles, a snake and a Lab. Her sister Courtney recently adopted her Marmoset monkey, Ella. Kellie says it became challenging to take care of Ella because she couldn't travel. --- Taylor Swift likes to show off her cat Indi, including her in multiple MySpace videos and even Tweeting about her. --- Carrie Underwood's Rat Terrier, Ace, just became famous. He's featured in the video for her hit "All-American Girl." Carrie is known to take Ace everywhere and bring a suitcase full of toys on the road. Pickler, Kellie --- Kellie Pickler's love for shoes has inspired her to support Soles for Souls by encouraging fans to bring new or gently used shoes to a shoe drive prior to her August 27th appearance with Taylor Swift at New York's Madison Square Garden. Kellie says, "I love shoes, but they are more than just a fashion statement, they are a necessity and not everyone has access to them because of financial reasons or natural disaster. Whatever the situation, Soles for Souls is there to help and I'm glad to lend my support.” Rascal Flatts --- Rascal Flatts is the largest-selling and top-grossing group in Country music history and Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Act in all genres with more venue attendance records than any other country act. To sweeten their success, Rascal Flatts has just sold their 4 millionth concert ticket in four years. The recently accumulated concert ticket sales include their two sold-out stadium shows in Chicago and Columbus this summer. Meanwhile, their album “Unstoppable” has been certified platinum. The CD is the group’s fourth consecutive studio album to open at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200. This brings their career album sales to a staggering 20 million in just this decade alone. The band has also amassed 10.5 million digital downloads. The “Rascal Flatts Unstoppable American Living Tour” runs through October. Rucker, Darius --- Darius Rucker celebrated selling over a million albums of his country debut Learn to Live at a party Nashville's swanky Sambuca restaurant. Darius told us he never expected this album to do so well. "I thought we made a special record, but I know the business; there's a lot of great records that get made that no one's ever heard. I know how hard it is to have a million-selling record." Darius is currently in the studio working on his follow-up C-D. Swift, Taylor --- Taylor Swift’s “Fearless” has earned 14 gold and platinum certifications around the world. The album is approaching quadruple-platinum status in the U.S. alone and has been certified triple-platinum in Australia and Canada, as well as platinum in Singapore, New Zealand, Ireland, Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan. Gold certifications come from the United Kingdom, Norway, South Africa, Hong Kong and the Philippines. Swift will perform this weekend in Chelmsford, England. She’s also scheduled to perform at Wembley Arena in London on November 23rd. Twain, Shania --- There's been much speculation about Shania Twain's birthday surprise to her fans. Though she doesn't reveal what it is, she has released a video tease from her home in Switzerland inviting fans to visit the site on her 44th birthday to learn more. She says, "You've been really wonderful. Thank you so much. So on August 28th, if you click onto my site you'll see the little gift I have for you on my birthday." People-dot-com reports that the surprise is not new music, but is possibly a video travelogue of where she's been over the last year.
