Thank you! Now let's get real. - 07/03/14

Today was an interesting day.  A local radio station, 94.9 The Game2, had a "morning beauties" contest.  I ended up winning.  I couldn't bring myself to ask people to vote for me, but I know my family rallied people far and wide for support.  Lots of our local viewers stepped up too.  For that, I'm really grateful especially being the "new girl" in Nashville TV town.  Thanks for the love and support to Big Joe, Chase and Greg at 94.9.  Thanks to our viewers.  Thanks to my family and friends.  Thanks to my team here at FOX17.

The contest was all in good fun, but my goal was to make something good come from it so I'm donating CPR kits to local schools that need them.  The sponsor of the contest, Sister's Whimzy is also making a donation - which is great!
 
However, the contest made me think about the way people see beauty.  Tomorrow morning, I'm going to post a picture of myself without makeup.  That's nothing new - the #nomakeupselfie trend has been around.  There's just more to beauty than what people see in a picture that involves hair and makeup. 

See you in the morning, make-up free!

STOLEN AMBULANCE

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- An Indiana man went for a joy ride in a new set of hot wheels: a stolen ambulance. But his adventure came to an end when police spotted his flashy ride a few miles away from Community East Hospital Tuesday morning after he crashed through a fence onto a golf course. City emergency medical services spokesman Carl Rochelle tells The Indianapolis Star the ambulance crew was inside the hospital when the man swiped the vehicle. He was arrested and the ambulance had some front-end damage.

ANIMALS-BLESSING

NEW YORK (AP) -- Bless the father, the son and the pet companions. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan has blessed three dozen homeless pets and their rescuers. CBS New York says the Tuesday event outside St. Patrick's Cathedral marked the start of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Volunteers and workers from the Mayor's Alliance for New York City Animals and the Humane Society brought the dogs, cats and a rabbit for prayers.

SPOKANE BUGS

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Some insects are bugging the residents of Spokane, Washington more than usual. Master Gardener horticulture coordinator Tim Kohlauff tells KHQ the gnats swarm this time of year because they're looking to mate. He says they'll land on an ash tree, which he describes as a big singles bar for bugs. Then they'll lay eggs in the bark. But the insects will bug off when it turns cold.

SHOPLIFTING-DRUG CHARGES

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Police in Dover, Delaware who responded to a shoplifting complaint got a two-for-one deal after arresting two people on drug charges. Police say they saw a woman trying to hide something under the seat of her car when they arrived at a Wawa convenience store Friday evening. After searching the vehicle, they found 43 bags of heroin and drug paraphernalia. Twenty-eight-year-old Jamie Hawkins and 53-year-old David Foulk were charged with drug and conspiracy offenses.
