COUNTRY MUSIC NEWS: #1 Country Album --- Thanks to a nice performance and multiple nominations at the ACM Awards, Jason Aldean's My Kinda Party is once again the nation's number- one country album. It sold 23,000 copies last week, according to the latest SoundScan figures. Zac Brown Band's You Get What You Give also stays at number-two, but with a 29 percent increase over last week. Taylor Swift's Speak Now jumps up a notch to number-three after her fun performance of "Mean" at the ACMs. Lady Antebellum's Need You Now also moves up a spot to number-four, and Sara Evans's Stronger follows suit, going from number-six to number-five. Grascals --- The Grascals are celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show with their newest album, Dance 'Til Your Stockings Are Hot and Ravelin'. The musical tribute includes such classic front porch pickin' songs as "Dooley," "Stay All Night" and the original jingle, "Mayberry's Finest." Dance 'Til Your Stockings Are Hot and Ravelin' is available on iTunes, and videos for a number of the tracks are already on YouTube. Lewis, Leona --- Could British songstress Leona Lewis be the next pop star to cross over into country music? She writes on Twitter, "I love a good country song. I hope I get to go to Nashville one day and just write with the amazing songwriters there and ride some quarter horses." Lynn, Loretta --- Happy Birthday to the original "Coal Miner's Daughter," Loretta Lynn, who turns 76 today. Loretta continues to influence a generation of entertainers while still stretching her own creative wings. She is planning to release a follow-up to the popular 2004 album Van Lear Rose, produced by Jack White from The White Stripes. McEntire, Reba --- Reba McEntire, who just wrapped up a year of touring with George Strait, is ready for a vacation. She says this summer she's looking forward going to the South Pacific and doing nothing by relaxing. She tells us, "I find a shade tree and my book and I just chill." Parton, Dolly --- Dolly Parton thinks her hit "I Will Always Love You" would make a great wedding song for Prince William and Kate Middleton. On the British TV show Lorriane, Dolly said, "Elton John could play for me and I could sing the song -- he could sing a duet with me. I'm sure he was probably invited. I wasn't invited." Pickler, Kellie --- Kellie Pickler is working hard on her next album, and she's taking her time to be sure it balances her artistic ambitions with commercial appeal. She tells the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, "I want to go in and cut the most country, backwoods -- some dirty country music. But I've got a lot of people to answer to, and I've got to make certain people happy." Rascal Flatts --- Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts is adjusting to first-time fatherhood just fine. But he did have a moment when they were leaving the hospital when he had his doubts. He says, "I just wanted to say to the nurses, 'Are you sure about this? I don't think either one of us is trained to do this." Four month-old Madeline Leigh is the spitting image of her father. Jay's wife Ali says, "My sister calls her Jayline!" Twain, Shania --- Shania Twain's alleged stalker, Dr. John Palumbo, will stay in police custody at least until tomorrow following a bail hearing in Canadian court yesterday. Palumbo, who was arrested at last month's Juno Awards for violating a restraining order, is charged with criminal harassment and failing to abide by a court order. NEWS OF THE WEIRD: A truck spilled 30 gallons of used cooking oil onto the streets of Cranston, Rhode Island, leaving the city smelling like French fries. Cranston Deputy Fire Chief Keith Newman said the oil was held in 5-gallon containers, which fell off the truck in different spots around the city. Newman said his clothes smelled like fries when he got back to the fire station. While most people will tell you the cops should spend more time going after murderers and thieves instead of drivers with a broken headlight, motorists in the southwest Ohio town of Hamilton have nothing but good things to say about their police chief. Hundreds of drivers are off the hook for more than 900 speeding tickets automatically issued by one of those mobile police cameras. The camera had been stationed in a park in Hamilton on April 2nd at the same time a youth soccer tournament, the Mid-American Soccer Classic, was being held. Chief Neil Ferdelman said he canceled the tickets because of the tournament, which he says drew many out-of-towners who were unaware the camera was being used. The tournament‘s director says there would have been consequences for next year‘s event in Hamilton had the chief decided to pursue the tickets. At $95 each, the 900 tickets would have totaled more than $86,000. The chief says 70 of the tickets were mailed. Those motorists have been sent letters telling them, never mind.

A man was arrested after hiding inside a Wichita, Kansas, Walgreens store until it closed ... so he could steal a case of Bud Light. Police showed up at the Walgreens after a burglar alarm was tripped at the store. When they got there they found a 25-year-old man lurking nearby with a case of beer. He reportedly told officers he decided to hide inside the store because employees refused to sell him the brewskis. The only problem with his brilliant plan was that he tripped the burglar alarm on the way out. A Florida mom was arrested and charged with DUI after she crashed her SUV into a mailbox, a traffic sign, and some bushes ... on the way to pick up her kids from daycare. According to reports, 38-year-old Lisa Finley could not stand on her own and kept falling asleep in the police car. When asked where she was headed, Finley said she thought she was on her way to pick up her 2-year-old and 4-year-old from daycare. If you‘re going to steal a car you might not want to ask the cops for help with gas. Officers in West Fargo, North Dakota, busted a young man who wanted a gas voucher. Assistant Chief Mike Reitan said the 19-year-old showed up at a police station looking a gas voucher. The department works with a local charity to provide help with gas in emergencies. The suspect told police he had to get to funeral in Wisconsin. Reitan said the car the young man was driving had been reported stolen. Officers arrested him and it doesn‘t look like he‘ll make it to the funeral. Police in Coral Springs, Florida, said a female motorist officers were trying to pull over for having faulty brake lights decided she need some food instead. An officer attempted to pull over 64-year-old Roberta Spen Monday afternoon, but the woman pulled into a McDonald‘s drive-thru and ordered lunch. Officer Courtney Vassell pulled up next to Spen‘s vehicle and told the woman to pull into a parking spot. Instead, Spen received her food and took off with Officer Vassell in hot pursuit. Spen finally pulled over but refused to roll down her window and provide Vassell with her license and proof of insurance, even after being told she would be arrested if she didn‘t. Instead, Spen sped off again, leading Vassell on another chase. She was finally boxed in by several other patrol cars at a red light. In one last attempt to break loose, Spen allegedly threw her vehicle into reverse and tried to squeeze between two cop cars, but that didn‘t work either. She was once again boxed in, and once again refused to roll down her windows. Officers had no choice but to break window and physically remove her from the vehicle as she was trying to wash down her burger. She was arrested on a variety of charges. No word if she got to finish her lunch. Welcome to today‘s Don Chase Secret 2 Success, a service of Bible Alive Ministries. Dr. Ralph Richardson, teacher.

After deliberating since Friday, the jurors found that Bonds had been evasive in front of a grand jury, but couldn't agree on the three counts of perjury. After the verdict was read, one juror, a 60-year-old engineer who identified himself only as Steve, said the players that testified at the trial about their own drug use were "true heroes. I believe there is one man who just couldn't do it because of who he is." Major League Baseball's all-time hits leader Pete Rose turns 70 today. "Charlie Hustle" played 24 seasons in the majors for the Reds, Phillies and Expos. On September 11th 1985, Rose broke Ty Cobb's all-time hits record. In 1989, Rose was banned for life from Major League Baseball for betting on games and is ineligible for induction into the Hall of Fame. KOBE BRYANT: Fined $100,000 for Anti-Gay Slur Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 for yelling an anti-gay slur at a referee during Tuesday's Lakers-Spurs game. In a statement, NBA Commissioner David Stern said, "Kobe Bryant's comment during [Tuesday] night's game was offensive and inexcusable. While I'm fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated." Kobe issued a statement saying his comment "should not be taken literally" and "the words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone." The Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization working to achieve equality for gays and lesbians, initially said his apology didn't go far enough, but applauded the NBA fine. Kobe later made a phone call to HRC President Joe Solmonese, who applauded Kobe for his "swift apology" and said they had "a very sincere conversation in which he expressed his heartfelt regret." NASCAR: Sunday at 12noon, it's the Aarons 499 from Talladega Superspeedway.

EXTRAS: On this day in 1912, the Titanic -- on its maiden voyage from England to New York City -- struck an iceberg and sank, killing more than 15-hundred people. There were 706 survivors. ASLEEP ON THE JOB: Was Biden Napping During Obama's Speech? Vice President Biden was caught napping or in deep thought while President Obama spoke to the nation yesterday about his plan to cut the deficit. And Biden apparently wasn't alone -- a woman seated directly behind the vice president also appeared to snooze or at least close her eyes. Possible Republican 2012 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee had another take. During a guest spot on Glenn Beck's Fox News show, Huckabee said Biden wasn't sleeping, he was praying. "He was praying that nobody will find out just how disingenuous they are about actually cutting the expenses and hoping and praying that the American people don't catch on to the games that they're trying to hoist upon us." TSA CONTROVERSY: Criticized For Frisking a 6-Year-Old The controversy surrounding the Transportation Security Administration's pat- downs of air passengers is back, and this time the uproar is over an agent giving an enhanced pat-down to a six-year-old girl. Sensing something wasn't right, the child's mother, Selena Drexel, asked her husband to videotape the pat-down, which occurred last weekend when the family was in the New Orleans airport before catching a flight home to Kentucky. After video of the incident went viral, TSA again came under under attack for their aggressive security tactics. Representative Jason Chaffetz called the incident "another example of the mistreatment of an innocent American at the hands of TSA." Freaky Things People Try To Check In At The Airport The Virgin Atlantic blog recently sent out a request to staffers working the check-in desks at the airline‘s various global destinations. They wanted to know about the strangest items that passengers have tried to have stowed in the cargo hold. From a giant wheel of cheese to a car engine, the survey revealed that passengers are willing to try and check in just about anything you can imagine, as demonstrated by the lady who had her family carry her unwrapped, unpackaged bath tub to the counter at JFK. Other items include: -A pet tarantula hidden in a passenger‘s coat at JFK airport. -A dead cow wrapped in plastic at JFK airport. -A bag of cutlery previously stolen from a Virgin Atlantic flight at the Delhi airport. -A bag of sand and seawater by a couple who fell in love on the island of Grenada and wanted a memento of the place where they met. -A bag of soil and coconut trees at Grenada airport. What Are You Going To Do With Your Tax Refund? With little just a few days are left to file taxes, and the average expected return around $3,000, many consumers are still torn on how they‘ll use their refunds. A new survey from Experian revealed that while the majority of Americans plan to save at least half of their refund, nearly one in three intend to blow it all. With the average consumer owing more than $4,000 in bankcard debt at the end of December, larger sums of money, such as tax refunds, are a great opportunity for consumers to make significant progress toward achieving their financial goals, which can include paying off credit card debt or buying a home. Other highlights: -Of the portion of their refunds that Americans plan to save, 52% are planning to build up their savings. Aother 16% will take a vacation. -A few Americans are making sensible spending decisions. Of the 51% who plan on spending a portion of their tax refund, 32% will pay living expenses and 19% will pay down credit card debt. Top-Selling Celebrity Perfumes Celebrity fragrances are more popular than ever. Just this year we‘ve seen scents launched by Katy Perry, Fergie, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian. The top 10 best- selling celebrity perfumes from 2010 brought in $215 million in the U.S., according to Euromonitor International. But which celebrity sells the most? That would be the late Elizabeth Taylor‘s White Diamonds, according to Forbes‘ list of the top-selling celebrity perfumes. The Top 10 Best-Selling Celebrity Perfumes: White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor $54 million Driven Derek Jeter $27 million Heat Beyoncé Knowles $21 million Unforgivable Sean ―P. Diddy‖ Combs $18 million NYC Sarah Jessica Parker $18 million Fancy Jessica Simpson $18 million Harajuku Lovers Gwen Stefani $18 million Usher for Men Usher $16 million Glow Jennifer Lopez $12 million In Bloom Reese Witherspoon $12 million Does ‗Idol‘ Hate Fat People? Former ―American Idol‖ judge Simon Cowell once made a comment about a contestant‘s weight, and now apparently the size of audience members is also an issue. Ashley Kauffman, a 19-year-old ―Idol‖ studio audience member, claims that she was kept from taking a front row seat at a recent taping because a male studio employee told her that she was too fat. Kaufman says that she was kept from sitting with friends, who all arrived early to the show and were promised excellent seats. But a spokesperson for FremantleMedia, which produces the show, has shot down Kauffman‘s claim, insisting that it is ―simply untrue.‖ The company says that despite what Kauffman said, she did not sit alone or in the back of the theater. In fact, she was seated in a row that included a VIP guest of judge Steven Tyler ―just four rows behind their friends, directly in camera shot, in some of the best seats in the house.‖ Cowell once quipped that the stage would need to be widened for former contestant Mandisa, who has since lost more than 100 pounds. How To Be A Super Couponer There‘s shopping, bargain shopping and then there‘s extreme couponing – a breed of savvy shopping that goes beyond just clipping coupons. It has gotten so popular that extreme couponing now has its own reality show! TLC‘s new reality series ―Extreme Couponing‖ follows shoppers as they plan and plot their way to extreme savings. Each episode introduces viewers to America‘s most extreme ―super couponers,‖ who demonstrate their shopping skills and share why they are so driven to grab the deals. ShopSmart magazine offers these ―Super Couponers‘ Top Tips‖: -Check your grocery store‘s policy: Some stores will double and even triple coupons on an item (usually up to a certain amount, typically 99 cents, max). But sometimes that‘s only on certain days of the week, so find out ahead of time and plan your shopping accordingly. -Save your coupons for when items are on sale: Plan ahead using weekly sales flyers to match deals with available coupons. But also take your entire coupon file to the store with you; many stores don‘t advertise all deals. -Take inventory mid-month: Many coupons expire at the beginning or end of the month, so take time in the middle of each month to see what coupons in your stash need to be used ASAP. -Track price cycles: Items usually go on sale at regular intervals. Keep a log of the price of items you buy most often, so that you know how much they usually cost, when they will likely go on sale, and when a sale is really a good deal. -Watch closely during checkout: Cashiers sometimes neglect to properly scan all coupons and store-loyalty cards. And if you accidently picked up the wrong product size, you could end up wasting a coupon. -Don‘t automatically reach for store brands: ShopSmart‘s tests over the years have shown that store brands are often just as good if not better in quality than national brands. But with the right combination of sale price and coupon savings, a national brand might actually be cheaper. -―Stack‖ coupons to maximize your savings: Some stores include additional coupons in their weekly circulars and in the e-mail newsletters sent to loyalty-card holders. You can use a store coupon on top of a manufacturer‘s coupon for even more savings. -Shop at stores that accept competitors‘ coupons: Strange as it may seem, some stores do so; after all, they want your business! Make one of them your go-to spot and take other stores‘ exclusive coupons with you when you shop. Sign up for loyalty cards at all of the stores in your area to get insider deals. -Use coupons on trial sizes: Unless a coupon stipulates that you can‘t, using a coupon to buy trial sizes of items could make them free. -Don‘t toss those expired coupons: Your store may still accept them – don‘t be afraid to ask. Turn Off The TV And Tune Into Physical Activity Kaiser Permanente is promoting active living with the kick off of Screen Free Week, April 18-24. The goal of the Screen Free initiative is to challenge children and families to turn off their televisions, video games, and significantly limit time online during the week by replacing sedentary behaviors with physical activities that promote better health. Obesity among children is an epidemic in the United States. Obese children are at increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other obesity-related health problems. According to The Kaiser Family Foundation, children aged 8-18 now spend more than 7.5 hours per day consuming media in some capacity with the explosion of smartphones, tablets, increased use of laptops, etc. — an increase of one hour per day since the report five years ago. These figures do not include time spent texting. Approximately 70% of children also have a TV in the bedroom. Beyond Screen Free Week April 18-24, parents are strongly encouraged to put limits on all forms of screen time year- round: -Turn off the TV during meals to encourage family conversation and interaction. -Keep TVs out of children‘s bedrooms. -Create ―screen-free‖ days on the family calendar. -Replace screen time with physical activity like walking, playing sports, or other active games. Active play time develops mental, physical, and social skills. -The maximum amount recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics is 2 hours of television each day for children over age two. TV is not recommended at all for children under age two. -Do not use TV time as a reward.
