Thursday-Friday/February 5th-6th “NEWS”! An email that reminds me just how fragile life is each day, & a video that will inspire you to never feel sorry about your lot in life again! “BUZZ” Michael Phelps suspended, loses endorsement deal, & Etta James rips Beyonce! “PHOTO GALLERY” (2004) Supermodel Elaine Mellencamp Revlon Run/Walk Photo-Op!
I CAN’T EVEN DESCRIBE IT, EXCEPT TO SAY IT’S ALMOST LIKE FAMILY. YOU KNOW A LOT ABOUT ME, AND OVER THE YEARS I START TO FIND OUT A LOT ABOUT YOU.
I RECEIVED AN EMAIL LAST NIGHT THAT I HAD LOST ANOTHER “FAMILY” MEMBER IN TENNESSEE. HIS NAME WAS DOUG HOOKER. HE HAD SENT COUNTLESS EMAILS TO ME THIS PAST YEAR, SOMETIMES JUST COMMENTS, OTHER TIMES INFORMATION, AND STILL OTHERS WITH SOME OF THE FUNNY JOKES, PICTURES OR VIDEOS MAKING THE ROUNDS ON THE INTERNET. YOU CAN FIND THEM IN THE “TALKBACK” SECTION OF THIS WEBSITE.
IT HIT ME LIKE A TON OF BRICKS WHEN I READ HIS DAUGHTER’S EMAIL BELOW.
I wanted to let you know that my dad passed away on Monday, Feb 2nd from what we think to be a pulmonary embolism. Dad was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension about 2 years ago and a combination of a weak heart and it, finally got him. But, I know that dad is in Heaven… that is my comfort. He doesn’t have to suffer any more. My dad was a great man and I loved him dearly and as I told him many times throughout his life, “My life will not be the same without you.” Doug Hooker, my dad, was a very special man who defined what love was to me.
You may not have known this, but you made his last days on earth better. I would go and visit him and he’d have KEARTH on in the office on the internet. Listening to you and the station gave him great comfort.
I was actually in LA back in July on a business trip and later discovered that I was only about 5 miles from KEARTH. But, while I was out there, I called dad on the telephone and let him listen to you on the radio (direct feed). He thought that was great!
Thank you very much for always being so attentive to Dad’s emails, etc. in the last few months. He talked about you often and he considered you a friend even though he never met you face-to-face.
If you would like to leave a message on the message board, please go to the funeral home’s website at http://www.ralphbuckner.com/serviceinfo.php. Also, there are some great photos of my dad so that you can put a face to a name. (There’s also one of him in his DJ days)!
Thank you for your time. I know you are a busy person, but I wanted to let you know.
Julie Hooker Moses
LIKE I SAID ABOVE: “FAMILY”……
ENJOY HEAVEN DOUG! YOU EARNED IT!

I PROMISE YOU THE NEXT TIME YOU’RE FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF OR GETTING DOWN ABOUT YOUR STATION IN LIFE, IT WILL ALL BE PUT IN PERSPECTIVE IF YOU’VE SEEN THIS!

MICHAEL PHELPS SUSPENDED AND LOSES KELLOGG’S ENDORSEMENT DEAL!
A couple days after Michael Phelps apologized for being photographed with a marijuana pipe, Kellogg’s says it has dropped the 14-time Olympic gold medalist as a spokesman. “We originally built the relationship with Michael, as well as the other Olympic athletes, to support our association with the U.S. Olympic team,” a rep for the Battle Creek, Michigan based company said Thursday, and the swimmer’s recent behavior is “not consistent with the image of Kellogg.” Their contract with Phelps is set to expire at the end of this month. At press time, the 23-year-old also has a sponsorship deal with Subway, which has declined comment.
Also Thursday, USA Swimming, the sport’s governing body in the U.S., suspended Phelps from competition for three months. “This is not a situation where any anti-doping rule was violated, but we decided to send a strong message to Michael because he disappointed so many people, particularly the hundreds of thousands of USA Swimming member kids who look up to him as a role model and a hero,” the federation said in a statement. “Michael has voluntarily accepted this reprimand and has committed to earn back our trust.”

AND ONE FINAL LAUGH FOR TODAY
An older lady gets pulled over for speeding…
Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Officer: Ma’am, you were speeding.
Older Woman: Oh, I see.
Officer: Can I see your license please?
Older Woman: I’d give it to you but I don’t have one.
Officer: Don’t have one?
Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.
Officer: I see..Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.
Older Woman: I can’t do that.
Officer: Why not?
Older Woman: I stole this car
Officer: Stole it?
Older Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.
Officer: You what?
Older Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see
The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up.
Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
Officer 2: Ma’am, could you step out of your vehicle please! The woman steps out of her vehicle.
Older woman: Is there a problem sir?
Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.
Older Woman: Murdered the owner?
Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.
The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.
Officer 2: Is this your car, ma’am?
Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers.
The officer is quite stunned.
Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.
The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.
The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.
Officer 2: Thank you ma’am, one of my officers told me you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.
Older Woman: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too!!!!
