Show Notes for Friday August 23, 2019

Tody we talk with Stephen Kendrick. The new film from the Kendrick brothers, OVERCOMER, releases TODAY. Their last film, WAR ROOM, made national news for weeks after its release when it surprised Hollywood by becoming the #1 movie in theaters in its second week.

Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth… until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey.

Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with OVERCOMER, their newest feature following FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the #1 box-office hit, WAR ROOM. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson.

Opening nationwide on August 23, OVERCOMER dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question: what do you allow to define you?

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A Florida Man used a front-end loader to dump a bucket of dirt on the vehicle his girlfriend drove to a meeting with him. Cops charge that 20-year-old Hunter Mills met last Thursday with the woman on a road adjacent to Phil-dirt Inc., an Okaloosa County excavation firm that sells top soil and assorted landscaping materials. After the woman arrived at the meeting site in a white 2010 Cadillac, Mills “approached in a front-end loader with a load of dirt in the bucket.” According to investigators, when Mills’s girlfriend “refused to answer a question,” he proceeded to commit a felony. “The defendant dumped the dirt on the driver side half of the vehicle, causing scratches to the top, hood, and trunk,” reported cops, who added that, “The window was down during the incident, which caused dirt to fill up the air vents, center console, and power windows.” Mills reportedly confessed to the dirt dump, claiming that he “did this in an attempt to get the woman to leave him alone.” That explanation did not stop sheriff’s deputies from arresting Mills on a felony criminal mischief charge.(

A Fort Myers, Florida woman who pulled a foot-long alligator from her pants during a traffic stop in Charlotte County in May and had more than forty turtles in a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles backpack pleaded no contest to multiple charges Wednesday in Charlotte County. 26-year-old Ariel Michelle Marchan-Le Quire was a passenger in a pickup pulled over for failure to stop for a stop sign on Oil Well Road in Charlotte County. The driver of the 2013 Silverado told deputies that he and Marchan-Le Quire had been trying to collect frogs and snakes from a nearby underpass. When deputies searched the truck, they found forty-two striped mud turtles and a softshell turtle in the cartoon character backpack at Marchan-Le Quire's feet. She pulled the gator from her pants when deputies asked if there was anything else in the truck. She was found guilty by the court on all counts and sentenced to twenty-four months’ probation. She will also have to complete 200 community service hours and make a $500 donation to the FWC's Wildlife Alert Fund. (
