In Awe - 06/23/14

  I'm just in awe of how generous our Fox 17 viewers are.  Thank you so very much for once again supporting the St. Jude Dream Home campaign.  Thank you for helping raise $1.4 million dollars for children who are fighting for their lives.
  Each year, I'm amazed at the outpouring of support for the Dream Home project.  Your donations of $100 per ticket top that list of course.  Then there's the builder who donates the house.  This year, that generous builder was Signature Homes.  However, the builder couldn't do it without all the vendors and suppliers who donate everything from the bones of the house all the way up to the last light fixture.  We're talking cabinets, faucets, flooring, brick, drywall and more.   Some of these sponsors are Brizo, Brentwood Cabinets, KCS Construction, Sun Splash, Shaw Floors, Darrell Waltrip Automotive, American Signature Furniture, Monkey Bar Garage Storage Systems, Alley Cassety Company, Acme Brick, and Trane just to name a few.
   This project proves year after year that when everybody gives a little, the children win big.
  Here's the complete list of winners. Chris & Donna Lloyd of Murfreesboro won the St. Jude Dream Home. 19 others won some great prizes. They're listed at this link:

Thank you once again for your generous support this year and for continuing to make Nashville the largest Dream Home campaign in the country.  Hugs!

LOCO MOCO RECORD

HONOLULU (AP) -- Mix rice, hamburger, eggs and gravy -- and you get loco moco. It's a favorite in Hawaii. Now, the organizers of Honolulu's annual Rice Festival are claiming a loco moco Guinness World Record. The massive bowl weighed in at 1,126 pounds. It contained 600 pounds of rice, 200 pounds of ground beef, 300 scrambled eggs and 200 pounds of gravy. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the food was donated to charity to help feed the homeless.

NAKED MAN

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- He was naked. He was shouting. And he was in the Wisconsin state Capitol's rotunda. State officials are trying to figure out how the naked guy got into the Capitol yesterday afternoon. A Capitol Police officer quickly led him away. Officials say the man was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and lewd and lascivious behavior.

MIAMI-WING PROMOTION

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- University of Miami students are winging it. Fans of the Hurricanes got free chicken wings, thanks to Miami's 22-10 victory over Duke this weekend. Miami cooked up a promotion with Buffalo Wild Wings for the Duke game. Students could get one free wing for every punt by the Blue Devils. Well, Duke punted nine times. The restaurant threw in an extra wing to round it up to regular 10-wing serving. Five-thousand wings were given out Sunday and the promotion was to continue yesterday. Wings for 500 costs about 5,600 bucks.

FRUIT FLIES-WASPS

HONOLULU (AP) -- It could be bug versus bug in Hawaii. The University of Hawaii wants permission to use a tiny wasp to attack medflies. The Mediterranean fruit flies cause millions of dollars in crop damage. The gnat-size wasp is from Kenya and researchers say it won't sting humans. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the state ag department is taking public comment on the proposed wasp release through October 23.
