COUNTRY NOTES:
Chesney, Kenny --- Kenny Chesney has scored his 21st No. 1 single with
“Somewhere With You,” from his current album “Hemingway‟s Whiskey.” The album
debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Country Album Chart and has
already yielded the chart topping song “The Boys of Fall.” Kenny will be seen on
ESPN with a new football documentary, about former University of Tennessee
quarterback Condredge Holloway. “The Color Orange: The Condredge Holloway
Story” will air February 20th. Kenny launches his “Goin‟ Coastal” tour in West Palm
Beach, Florida, on March 17th. With only 12 tour dates on sale, Chesney has
already sold more than 400,000 tickets, putting him well on track to surpassing
another one million tickets sold in a touring year. It would be his ninth year to
achieve that feat.

Evans, Sara --- Sara Evans has released her second novel, “Softly and Tenderly.”
The new book follows Evans‟ debut offering “The Sweet By and By,” which hit
bookstores last year. According to a statement on Evans‟ official website, the book
follows the life of Jade, a successful business owner who is faced with tough life
decisions after she finds out about her husband‟s illegitimate child.

Gentry, Teddy --- After several years off the road, Teddy Gentry of Alabama hits
the stage again, this time with his new band Rockit City. His concert series starts
January 21st in Nashville. The event celebrates Teddy‟s 59th Birthday, his official
birthday is January 22nd. Gentry has divided his time between raising his SouthPoll
cattle breed in his hometown of Ft. Payne, Alabama, and songwriting and producing
in Nashville. This spring, he plans to introduce a compilation of 12 new artists and
12 new songs.

McEntire, Reba --- Reba McEntire's spring fashion line is now available at Dillard's.
The collection is in the Missy department and includes T-shirts, jeans, slacks, skirts,
jackets and boots.

New Wii Game --- Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley and Miranda Lambert are among
the stars whose songs are featured on Country Dance -- a new game for the
Nintendo Wii. You use the Wii rmote to replicate on-screen dance moves, and new
songs and rewards are unlocked as your progress through the game. Here's a
sampling of some of the songs featured:
Carrie Underwood - "Cowboy Casanova"
Brad Paisley - "Water"
Sugarland - "Stuck Like Glue"
Trace Adkins - "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk"
Zac Brown Band - "Chicken Fried"
Rascal Flatts - "Life Is a Highway"
Blake Shelton - "All About Tonight"
Miranda Lambert - "White Liar"
Johnny Cash - "Ring of Fire"
Country Dance will be released this spring.

Perry, The Band --- The Band Perry aren't afraid to face their fears, much like in
their first number-one hit, "If I Die Young." Siblings Kimberly and Neil Perry say
taking risks and refusing to give up has helped them get where they are. Kimberly
says, "We may not be a lot of things, but we're intrepid." And Neil adds, "We're
hard-headed.

Shelton, Blake --- Blake Shelton says his number-one hit "Home" breathed new life
into his career.
-He was voted class clown in high school.
-He plans to marry Miranda Lambert this spring.
-Blake broke a Hudson Lake, Oklahoma fishing record when he reeled in a 40-
pound spoonbill.
-Sawyer Brown's show in his hometown was the first concert he ever saw.

St. Jude --- Randy Owen, Ronnie Dunn, Justin Moore, The Band Perry and Jake
Owen were some of the country acts appearing at St. Jude Children‟s Research
Hospital in Memphis last week to help officially kick-off the annual Country Cares
for St. Jude Kids radiothon season. More than 30 artists including The JaneDear
girls, The Grascals, Walker Hayes, Joey & Rory, Steve Holy, Josh Kelley and Eli
Young toured the hospital to meet with patients and help raise awareness for St.
Jude, a children‟s cancer hospital. This year, more than 800 artists, label
representatives, radio station personnel and executives continued the Country
Care‟s legacy by attending the event at St. Jude. Now in its 22nd year, Country
Cares has raised more than $385 million for St. Jude since it began in 1989. It was
founded by Randy Owen.

Sugarland --- Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland wouldn't mind if some
of their music ended up in a movie someday. For that matter, they wouldn't mind if
they themselves landed on a popular TV show. Jennifer says, "I want to be on Glee.
Wouldn't that be fun?" She also says she'd love to see the characters on Sesame
Street do a version of "Stuck Like Glue."

Swift, Taylor --- We're used to hearing Taylor Swift rake people over the coals in
her songs, but with her newest single, "Back to December," she takes a different
direction. Taylor explains that the song is a belated apology to someone she may
not have treated so well. Gossip mags speculate that the song is about former beau
Taylor Lautner.
Underwood, Carrie --- Carrie Underwood wasn't comfortable writing songs yet when
she was making her first album. She tells a Buffalo radio station she was afraid of
coming up with ideas that sounded stupid. But now, she says, "I say stupid stuff all
the time and it's O.K." Before winning American Idol, Carrie never tried her hand
at songwriting. "I never thought I'd be using it. So I never really tried, but it's
definitely something I enjoy."

Urban, Keith --- Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman kept a pretty big secret from
reporters at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards: they're the proud parents of a new
baby girl! Born December 28 at Nashville's Centennial Women's Hospital, newborn
Faith Margaret Kidman Urban joins the couple's 2-year-old biological daughter,
Sunday Rose. Though she was born via surrogate, Faith Margaret is Urban and
Kidman's biological daughter. "Our family is truly blessed, and just so thankful, to
have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret," Kidman, 43, and Urban, also 43,
tell UsMagazine.com in a statement.
--- Ever wonder how Keith Urban came to name his fan club Monkeyville? He didn't
-- they named themselves that. Several years ago, Keith asked a designer to come
up with a non-language logo to stand for what he did. He asked that it be tribal,
musical and fun. The result was a jubilant guitar-playing monkey that fans loved so
much they adopted it as their own -- and thus Monkeyville was born.

WEIRD NEWS:
Police in Missoula, Montana, say a man was apparently so distracted by loud music
that he didn‟t notice a freight train moving toward him before it struck his car just
behind the driver‟s door. Officials said the man‟s car was badly damaged in the
crash early Sunday, but the driver was not injured. No alcohol or drugs were
involved. Police said the driver will be cited for failing to stop at a railroad signal.

The editors of CardRatings.com have announced their take on the worst and best
credit cards of last year. Topping the list of the bad ones is the First Premier
MasterCard with an astonishing 79.99 percent A.P.R. The short-lived prepaid debit
card-- endorsed by the Kardashians by the way -- was cited as being the most
hated card. Also on the bad list were Best Buy's Reward Zone MasterCard, which
CardRatings.com said had little disclosure of details, and the Applied Bank
Unsecured Visa Gold Card, which was cited as the most expensive way to rebuild
credit. The Applied Bank card offered no grace period, meaning that interest begins
accruing on your purchase the moment you swipe your card, not three or four
weeks later as most credit cards do. But there are some good ones out there. The
best Cash Back Credit Card: Blue Cash from American Express. The best Airline
Credit Card: Blue Sky from American Express. The best Reward Points Credit Card:
Chase Sapphire Card. And the award for best customer service went to American
Express.

There's no more pay phone in the country courthouse in Mitchell, South Dakota.
That's because officials figured out it was costing the county about $70 bucks per
call! County Maintenance Supervisor Mark Ruml told the Davison County
Commission that he'd never seen anyone use the phone in more than three years
and money to pay for it was coming out of his budget. It cost the county $763 a
year to have the phone and records showed only 11 calls were placed on the phone
in all of 2010. So the county commission actually had a vote and decided it had to
go. (Sioux City Journal)

OFFICER DON'S POLICE BLOTTER:
It‟s time now for Officer Don‟s Police Blotter, 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.”

The Drug Enforcement Administration of Rockland, New York has some 'splainin' to
do! David McKay lives with his wife, their 13-year-old daughter, brother-in-law and
two dogs at their home on Sharon Drive. Last Thursday afternoon, police officers
barged into their home with weapons drawn and pointed guns at the family. The
officers began screaming for someone named Michael McKay and when David tried
to explain that no one named Michael lived at the house, police pulled him outside
his home in his underwear in the freezing cold. They also yanked his eighth-grade
daughter out of her bed at gunpoint. The girl later vomited, fainted and had an
asthma attack and had to be rushed to the hospital. The police had the wrong
house. John P. Gilbride, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement
Administration, has now issued a statement apologizing to the family and clearing
their name.

Worst Substitute Teacher Ever!
In Sarasota, Florida, we may have found the worst substitute teacher ever. When
55-year-old William Amory couldn't figure out how to use the ActivBoard in the
second grade classroom at Booker Elementary School he became enraged. When
students tried to help him, he allegedly attacked them. He punched one 7-year-old
boy twice in the stomach -- so hard the kid vomited. He punched another 8-year-
old boy so hard he had to go to the hospital for a chest bruise. And he pushed
another girl so hard she fell back in her chair. Amory was arrested and charged with
three counts of child abuse, all felonies. (Herald Tribune)

From the International File in Cologne, Germany, two unidentified crooks had big
plans for breaking into an office. They got into the building just fine and were
headed up to the office they had targeted when the elevator got stuck. They tried
to pry open the door, with one of the bozos injuring his hand in the process. After it
became obvious that they weren't going anywhere, they did the only logical thing.
They used the phone in the elevator to call for help. And by this time, they had
abandoned any plans for trying to make up an elaborate story as to why they were
in the building on the weekend. They simply told the operator the truth. That they
were in the building planning to rob an office when the elevator jammed. Police
appreciated their honesty but arrested them anyway.

Cops busted an Illinois man after he called a pizza parlor and tried three different
credit cards to pay for a delivery -- all of which were stolen! The folks at Edwardo's
Pizza in the Chicago suburb of Skokie alerted cops, who showed up at William
Peppers' home with $51 worth of food -- and a warrant for his arrest. He was
charged with felony forgery ... and probably didn't get the free two-liter bottle of
soda, either.

A corrections officer in Florida was arrested for trying to smuggle eight grams of
marijuana to a prisoner -- who promised to give him a bottle of tequila in return.
James Jones hid the weed inside a sandwich he was bringing to inmate Travis
Cottrell, and was charged with drug possession and introduction of contraband.

Chicago police arrested a man accused of punching a female parking officer in the
face for writing him a ticket. Police said Hasan Perryman was charged with one
count of felony aggravated battery of a government employee after he allegedly
repeatedly punched a Traffic Management Authority employee in the face January
14th while she was issuing him a ticket. Perryman fled but was arrested a short
time later. The TMA worker was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police in Lowell, Massachusetts, said a man posing as a valet stole a car from a
woman in labor after she arrived at the emergency room. Police said the woman
drove herself to Lowell General Hospital at about 3 a.m. Friday and a man wearing
what appeared to be a uniform shirt approached her, identified himself as the
hospital‟s valet and offered to park her car. One problem – the hospital doesn‟t
have a valet. The car was found abandoned Saturday.

Police said a Jersey City woman had a beer bottle smashed over her head by
another woman during an argument over a clothes dryer at a Laundromat Sunday
night. Officers responding to Junction Laundromat shortly before 8 p.m. found the
21-year-old victim bleeding from the head and lying on the floor beside a puddle of
blood. A witness told police that during the argument over the dryer, another
woman hit the victim over the head with a 12-ounce Corona beer bottle before
running away. The victim was taken to a hospital and police are looking for the beer
bottle-wielding woman.

A St. Petersburg, Florida, woman was arrested Saturday night for battery on an
unusual victim. Stephanie Six, 29, was leaving a bar around 3 a.m. when the police
on horses showed up in an effort to control the crowds in downtown St. Petersburg.
Six had reportedly slapped one of the horses in the nose as the police confronted
her to leave the downtown area. Six said she was waiting for friends when the
horse came up real fast. “I put my hand up into his face as a reaction,” said Six.
Officials said Six slapped the horse and pushed off of it with her other hand. Six
was arrested and charged with battery on a police horse.

taken to a hospital after breathing problems during a shoot for his next appearance
on "CSI," a representative told E! News. He suffered an allergic reaction and
needed treatment at nearby Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank,
Calif., according to the report. But he was released soon after his doctor declared
him fine. "He is fine," his rep told E! "All is well." Bieber was also present at the
Golden Globes on Sunday. By this time, you'd think Justin would be immune to
Bieber Fever. (Billboard)
-School districts nationwide are trying out video cameras as a way to deter drivers
from passing buses that are loading or unloading children.
Districts in Dallas County, Texas, Montgomery and Frederick counties in Maryland

CELEBRITY NEWS:
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' condition continues to improve. In fact, she
could leave the Tucson hospital within days or weeks if she continues to improve
from the near-fatal gunshot to her head, her doctors said yesterday. She also
continues to show positive signs. Her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, told doctors
that she smiled at him, which suggests a higher level of awareness. Yesterday, she
spent the day recovering from surgery to repair her right eye socket, damaged in
the shooting, with titanium metal mesh. Her right eye remains swollen as it
continues to heal, but her left eye was undamaged in the attack.

Sandra Bullock has put a persistent rumor to rest. At Sunday's Golden Globes, she
declared, "[Ryan Reynolds] is not my lover." Sandy explained that her Proposal co-
star is "just an amazing friend...but I don't get his loving after dark."

Mila Kunis might have looked like a million bucks at Sunday's Golden Globes, but
her beauty treatment actually cost her seven-grand. Mila, who was nominated for
Best Supporting Actress, reportedly got a facial that contained rubies and
diamonds. The gems allegedly provide antioxidants and a lustrous sheen.

Fresh off his split from Taylor Swift, Jake Gyllenhaal was on the arm of another
singer at Sunday's Golden Globes. His date was Jenny Lewis, frontwoman of the
band Rilo Kiley and one of his exes. They dated back in 2001.

Ricky Gervais says he “probably won‟t” serve as host of the Golden Globes again
after insulting numerous stars at the latest ceremony. During the Sunday event,
Gervais poked fun at Charlie Sheen, Robert Downey Jr., Angelina Jolie and Johnny
Depp‟s movie, “The Tourist,” two unnamed famous Scientologists and the
Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which presents the Globes. Gervais said the
HFPA invited him to return as host for the 2011 prize presentation before he was
even finished presiding over the 2010 edition of the show. However, as of Sunday
night he hadn‟t been asked to return for the 2012 awards ceremony. “That‟s
ominous, isn‟t it?” Gervais mused. “So I probably won‟t be here next year.”

„Bubble Ball‟ Now Top Free App Game
A free app written by a Spanish Fork, Utah, 14-year-old is the No. 1 game on
iTunes, dethroning “Angry Bird Seasons.” “Bubble Ball,” by eighth-grader Robert
Nay, became the App Store‟s top free game last week. Nay spent more than a
month using Ansca Mobile‟s Corona SDK to write 4,000 lines of code for the
physics-based game, also available for Android. The goal of the game is to guide a
pink ball across several levels with other objects and gravity. “Bubble Ball” was
released December 29th. The game has been downloaded 2 million times in the last
two weeks and had the potential to bring in at least $2 million if it wasn‟t free –
enough to pay for Nay to attend Brigham Young University, the school he wants to
attend, 113 times. The game he knocked out of the top spot, “Angry Birds,” was
developed by a team of professionals in Helsinki.

CAREERS:
Jobs That Pay $100 – Or More – Per Hour
Tired of working for peanuts? How would you like to make $100 an hour – or
better? Al Lee, the director of quantitative analysis at PayScale.com, says the
median hourly wage in the U.S. is $16 an hour, so earning $100 an hour would be
more than six times what the average worker makes. Lee says the three easiest
ways to get a $100 an hour job are becoming a doctor, becoming a CEO of a large
company, or managing other people‟s money. But if you don‟t have the time or the
means to get a medical degree, there are a few exceptions for those with special
talents. Here are a few jobs that pay big money:
-Underwater Welder: You can make $900 to $1,200 a day, working extreme hours
(30 days at sea with 12-hour shifts) in extreme conditions.
-Anesthesiologist: The mean hourly wage is $101.80.
-Commercial Pilot: The top 10% of commercial pilots earn an average of $120 an
hour. However, most pilots don‟t have high annual salary because that‟s the rate
for flight hours and they‟re not in the air 40 hours a week. FAA regulations limit
flying time to a max of 100 hours a month or 1,000 hours a year.
-Tattoo Artist: The top 10% of tattoo artists earn on average $130 an hour but, like
pilots, they‟re not working 40 hours a week at that rate. They usually negotiate a
price per tattoo with the client.
-Arbitrator: The top 10% earn $130 an hour on average.
-Orthodontist: The mean hourly wage is $99.13 an hour, which means probably half
of the profession earns $100 or more an hour.
-Freelance Photographer: Most freelance photographers earn $13 to $50 an hour
but the top 10% on average, earn $100 an hour.
-Interior Designer: The top 10% of interior designers earn, on average, $100 an
hour. Those who can provide architectural, engineering and other specialized
services in addition to design tend to earn top dollar.
-Hand Model: “Parts” models, selected for their extraordinary hands, feet, torso or
other body parts to model products tend to earn about $100 an hour.
-Life Coach: Life coaches on average earn $100 to $150 an hour. Executive and
corporate coaches tend to earn the most.
-Massage Therapist: Massage therapists can make $100 an hour or more; the
highest earners are in private practice. The average is $45 an hour.
-Political Speechwriter: Political speechwriters earn $100 an hour, according to
“Career Opportunities in Writing,” a book by Allan Taylor, James Robert Parish and
Brad Schreiber. But you have to log several years in a congressman‟s office or
other political office.

EXTRAS:

-90% of cell phone users ignore their incoming calls, and the calls that are most
frequently ignored are the ones that come from loved ones -- not strangers or work
colleagues, All Headline News reports of a study from Britain's University of Salford.
The top 10 reasons for not answering a cell phone:
1-Did not hear the ring
2-Driving
3-Feeding a pet
4-Unable to speak
5-Busy in the bathroom
6-Can't find the cell phone
7-In a meeting
8-Didn't recognize the number
9-Not in the mood to answer
10-Others might overhear
-Ladies, if you want him to notice you, wear red. The color red makes men feel
more amorous toward women, according to a study by two University of Rochester
psychologists. The study found that men are unaware of the role that color plays in
their attraction to a woman. While red has long been associated with love -- from
red hearts on Valentine's Day to notorious red-light districts, this is the first study
to scientifically document the effects of color on behavior in the context of
relationships.
