Myrick didnt speak any words, but instead began to sing "Every Praise." Though the kidnapper cursed at him and told him to shut up, the little boy kept singing, and continued for about three hours until the kidnapper let him out of the car.

Myrick ran to a nearby home and asked the resident to call his guardian.

According to FOX News the boy has now met "Every Praise" gospel singer Hezekiah Walker, and that the two sang the song together. Police have no leads on the suspect, FOX News reports, but they hope a sketch they have released will generate tips.

A Teachable Moment - 06/06/13

   Saving You Money isn't just a segment I do on TV.  It's really the way my family lives.  I remember as a little girl my parents saying, "Why pay full price if you don't have to?"  The truth is, you don't!  It's so much fun to score a deal, to wait for the mark downs, to strategize the sales. A few years ago when I started Stacy's Saving You Money segment, I interviewed some expert coupon mamas.  They taught me everything I needed to know about coupon stacking, BOGO deals and sales cycles.  I'll admit, I've fallen off the coupon wagon for a few weeks at a time here and there.  After all, it's hard to work full time, raise two kids, be a wife, manage a home, do community service, take care of pets, garden, exercise, volunteer at school/church and find the time for all that scissor cutting and filing.  For the most part though, we stick with the strategy.
    This brings me to the teachable moment.  The other night, we were going to go out to eat.  This isn't something we do all that often.  Before we left, my husband said, "Where's the Clipper magazine or the ValuPak or the coupon binder?"  He wanted to see which coupons we had for which restaurants BEFORE we made a decision about where we were going to eat.  My daughter wanted to go to Five Guys (which we love Five Guys,) however we did not have a coupon for Five Guys on this particular night.  We did have a coupon for Culver's, another burger joint that was offering a BOGO on burgers and a BOGO on icecream.  We'd basically pay half.  My daughter made her case at which point we countered with the coupon argument.  Then she says, "Why do we always have to have a coupon?"  My husband and I both rushed to answer, "Because money doesn't grow on trees."  "Because we want you to understand the value of a dollar."  "Because if we spend less tonight, we'll have more for later."  "Because we're the parents, we make the rules."  And finally the question she couldn't answer and the one that hushed her.... "Why pay full price if you don't have to?"
   Now I realize we may be old fashioned.  We make our children fold towels and empty the dishwasher.  They also help water the plants and take care of the pets (sort of.) In return, they earn $2 a week.  Through this process, they have learned how precious those dollars are and how they can really add up.  Yes, they get paid for their work, but they really get paid with the satisfaction of a job well done and the tangible contribution they make day in and day out. It would be a lot easier and less confrontational to do everything for them and to let them choose the restaurant regardless of coupons, but we would be doing them a disservice.  This way, when they're ready to spread their wings and leave our cheap nest, they'll have real strategies that will last a life time and hopefully they'll never pay full price when they don't have to.

PANTIES SALE-ARREST

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Wanna buy some panties? Memphis police have busted a man suspected of selling stolen undies at a bus station. According to officers, 53-year-old Joe Milam was peddling panties swiped from Victoria's Secret. Officers tell the Commercial Appeal some of the unmentionables still had price tags and anti-theft devices attached. Police say the panty peddler tried putting up a fight. Officers say he had 59 pairs of panties. He now faces theft and other charges.

PLAZA HOTEL-BIKE RACK

NEW YORK (AP) -- It's the swanky Plaza hotel versus New York's bike share program. Lawyers for the Plaza have gone to court with their claim the area across the street is no place for a large bike rack. The Plaza wants the Citi Bike rack removed from the landmark Grand Army Plaza and fountain. The Plaza says the 147-foot-long bike station is an "eyesore" and creates traffic jams. But lawyers for the city say the bike rack is in an ideal spot, across from Central Park.

NYC WATERFRONT-POOL

NEW YORK (AP) -- Take a dip in the East River? Backers of the floating Plus Pool say they're serious about the idea. The plan calls for an Olympic-sized pool with cruise-ship like decking. It would be anchored off Brooklyn. The designers say their floating pool would be made from a material that filters river water to make it safe for swimming. Project co-founder Archie Coates says the goal is to "change the way New Yorkers see the river by giving them a chance to swim in it." The design still has to be approved by a host of agencies, from the city to the Coast Guard. The pool boosters say it could be ready for swimming as soon as 2016.

JAIL TOILETS-HOOKS

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -- It's jailhouse fishing. And you might be surprised at what's being caught. Authorities at a western Kentucky jail are using fish hooks in the toilet pipes. The idea is to stop inmates at the Daviess (DAY'-vees) County Detention Center from clogging up the plumbing. Prisoners try flushing everything from jeans to blankets. Jailer David Osborne says the fish hooks allow jail workers to pull out the foreign objects. Osborne tells a local paper (Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer) he guesses the prisoners flush for fun because they're bored.
