LIVE: Jury Reaches Verdict

LIVE: Jury Reaches Verdict


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!

SUPER BOWL-MEDIA DAY MOMENTS

PHOENIX (AP) -- If the Super Bowl is the show -- then Media Day has to be the sideshow. Media Day has the reputation for wild and whacky questions. In 2008, Mexican TV personality Ines Gomez Mont showed up in a white bridal gown and asked Tom Brady to marry her. The Patriots quarterback politely declined the proposal. But did Gomez Mont put a hex on Brady? The Patriots lost to the New York Giants to ruin their perfect season. They lost again to the Giants in the Super Bowl four years later. A today's Media Day, many of the questions surely will be about deflated footballs. But perhaps there will be a wacky twist.

SUPER BOWL-SECURITY

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Some big hitters are going to the Super Bowl -- and we're not talking linebackers. Black Hawk helicopters and truck-sized X-ray machines will be put to use to help secure the big game Sunday. U.S. Customs and Border Protection showed off some of their heavy metal yesterday. The X-ray machines are mobile and the size of a large truck. They're usually on the U.S.-Mexico border, scanning for contraband and explosives. The Black Hawks and other copters will be the eyes in the sky. The big choppers will also be used to enforce the no-fly zone in the area around the University of Phoenix Stadium.

FACEBOOK POST-JAIL

MINERAL WELLS, Texas (AP) -- There are somethings you might not want to boast about on Facebook. Authorities in North Texas report busting 22-year-old Eddie Smith, after he posted on Facebook that he had more than a dozen warrants out for his arrest. Detective Nick Wells tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram a concerned citizen saw the post and notified authorities. Wells says Smith was wanted on 14 city warrants. They ranged from traffic tickets to petty theft and totaled more than $1,200 in fines. A judge has ordered Smith to serve 51 days in jail.

ARMED ROBBERY-WALLET E0850

MONROE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Don't you just hate it when you leave your wallet at a gas station? Police in Monroe Township, Michigan, charge a young bandit left his wallet behind during a stickup. Authorities say 19-year-old Cody Wilson forgot his wallet on a counter, after initially asking to buy cigarettes. According to police, another suspect pulled a gun and the two demanded money. They took the loot, but left the wallet. The Monroe News reports Wilson and 20-year-old Derek Beach were arraigned yesterday on armed robbery charges.
