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!

DAVID LETTERMAN-CAPITOL GYROCOPTER

NEW YORK (AP) -- David Letterman will soon retire. But he's not letting a juicy target like the U.S. Capitol gyrocopter landing go unnoticed. Last night, on CBS' "Late Show," Letterman did the Top 10 "questions to ask yourself before landing a gyrocopter on the United States Capitol lawn." Here are a few examples:

No. 8, "Should I do this during Secret Service happy hour?"

No. 2, "Should I land somewhere unguarded, like the White House?"

And No. 1, "Will I be the only person who actually did something in Washington today?"

AIR PUMP THEFTS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some New York City crooks are getting pumped. The NYPD reports they're looking for two suspects in a string of air pump thefts from gas stations in Brooklyn and Queens. Seventeen such incidents have been reported since late December, the latest being earlier this month. Investigators report the pump bandits attach tow chains to snatch the coin-operated air pumps. The pumps can hold up to a few thousand bucks worth of change apiece.

MARIJUANA-BIKE TIRES

DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) -- Two Arizona teens are in trouble -- after federal officers say they tried smuggling pot hidden in bike tires. Customs and Border Patrol Enforcement officers report finding a total of seven pounds of marijuana inside the tires. A drug-sniffing dog alerted customs officers as a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl crossed the border. The bikes were seized. The teens have been turned over to Homeland Security investigators.

CELLMATES-HOLE-DIGGING CHARGES

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- It's no Shawshank Redemption. Two men are charged with digging a hole in a cinderblock cell wall in a western Pennsylvania jail. They didn't get very far. Somerset County Jail Warden Gregory Briggs says the hole was only about four inches wide. Joseph Lee Bockes and Billy Ray Naill now face charges that include institutional vandalism. Authorities didn't file attempted escape charges because the hole was so small. The Somerset Daily American first reported the story.
