Show Notes for Thursday May 3, 2018


Dear John,

I heard you mention that you're very different from each other and you've been together for a long time. I need your help. I'm dating a young lady that likes the finer things in life. I'm not a wealthy guy and I'm afraid that I'm not going to be able to provide for her. I love her so much and she tells me that she loves me too. Our friends keep asking when we're going to get married, but this is the reason I have not asked her yet. I'm trying to better myself so I can afford to buy her nicer things, but I wonder if that's the right thing to do. She was raised to like brand names and new things. I was raised to not look at brands, but wear things for comfort. Do you think there's any chance of us making this work? Any advice?

Signed – BrokeBoyfriend.

24-year-old Kiana Wallace of Ohio used someone else’s urine for a drug test and wound up failing the test anyway. Wallace was sentenced to 18 months in prison, in eastern Ohio’s Belmont County, after submitting a borrowed urine sample that tested positive for drugs. Wallace pleaded guilty earlier this month to attempted tampering with evidence. Judge Frank Fregiato called the failed urine swap “bizarre” and told Wallace he wouldn’t allow her to make a mockery of the drug and alcohol testing system. Records show Wallace was sentenced to six months in jail followed by probation in January 2017 for drug possession. Wallace’s public defender declined to comment. (

“Work spouse” relationships often start out innocently: Coworkers grab lunch, share inside jokes, commiserate. Sometimes, though, they go too far. How do you know if you’ve gone too far with your work spouse? You’ve crossed the line if you’re hiding any aspect of your relationship from your spouse, meeting after work for social rather than work situations, start moving your conversations from business to personal topics, and specifically if you start complaining about your real spouse.

A California man who was halfway through serving his sentence escaped the jail. He was captured less than an hour later. Police say Marc Schwartz scaled a tall fence capped with coils of razor wire at the detention center

Some Hilton Head drivers are asking why there's a chicken crossing Point Comfort Road. In this case, he wants them to slow down so the neighborhood children are safe. Every day, Logan Cambron suits up in white feathers, rubber feet, and a chicken head and starts his shift with a sign and radar gun. "We were out here in the rain, in this hot suit, for two and a half hours yesterday stopping cars," Cambron said. The 'chicken man' has lived on Point Comfort Road in Hilton Head for 25 years and says he's sick of drivers speeding down his street. "We've got over a dozen kids down this side of the neighborhood," he said. "I'll stand out here with the radar gun, and if somebody's doing more than 3-4 miles an hour over the speed limit, I walk out in the road and make them slow down." Cambron says the suit makes people laugh instead of getting angry, but its inspiration is not very funny. "We have pet chickens and they like to go across the street to the neighbor's house because the neighbor feeds them," he said. "One would cross the street and she got hit and run by a truck." Robert Clark and his kids live across from Cambron. "There's a curve right before our driveway that really makes it dangerous," Clark said, "Because our kids like to play, they like to be here and be in the neighborhood." The town says the 30 miles per hour speed limit is standard on a state residential road. "I can't invest the time to do another thorough speed limit study when I don't feel conditions have changed, depreciated, since the last time," said Darrin Shoemaker, the town's Traffic and Transportation Engineer. "But I suggested to the neighborhood that they could request one of the state." But this chicken says he keeps getting the runaround. "The town told us to talk to the state, the state told us to talk to the town," Cambron said. The town and sheriff's office put up a "Your Speed" sign for a couple weeks in January and it's back up this week. But the chicken man says he'll be out there until something is done. "I'm gonna make them slow down," Cambron said, "I'm not gonna let a kid get hurt under my watch here."

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
A man was arrested in Knoxville earlier this week for allegedly pulling a gun on a man and impersonating a police officer. Kevin Knight, 41, faces charges of impersonating a licensed professional, aggravated assault and misdemeanor possession of a handgun while under the influence. A police report says just before midnight Tuesday night, the alleged victim said he had just left Greene Military, 7215 Kingston Pike, and approached his vehicle when Knight walked up, pulled out a black handgun, chambered a round, and opened the victim's car door. The report says Knight demanded to know if the victim was doing drugs and claimed to be a police officer. After a brief argument, Knight ran inside Greene Military and locked the door. When officers arrived, they ordered Knight to come outside. They said he smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and red eyes. He said he did not pull out a gun, but had pepper spray instead. Officers searched the store and found the gun in question on a shelf in the back stock room, which Knight had access to, as well as a Tennessee Highway Patrol badge. Knight is being held on $24,000 bond.
