Show Notes for Thursday, October 07, 2021


Dear John,

I live in an apartment with paper thin walls. My neighbor and I work opposite shifts. Usually that's a good thing. When he's home I'm at work and vice versa. Lately his schedule changed slightly and he's home when I'm trying to sleep and I'm home when he's trying to sleep. Not sure how a few hours shifted in his schedule could cause so much frustration, but it has. He's been really grumpy towards me lately and I'm not too happy with him. As I'm trying to sleep, I hear his TV on super loud. When he's trying to sleep, I'm as quiet as I can be, but apparently my microwave dings too loud because he mentioned that last week.

Up until now, we have always gotten along really well. I'm hoping we get used to the new schedule soon and things get better, but until then. Do you have advice on how I can better deal with a loud and often angry neighbor?

Signed – Tippy Toes

A Little Rock woman on parole from a 2015 conviction for felony driving while intoxicated was arrested again on a felony DWI charge, her sixth within 10 years, after calls involving multiple incidents in Hot Springs. 41-year-old Tammy Haynes Russell was taken into custody shortly after 8:00 p.m. and charged with a felony count of DWI, sixth offense, punishable by up to 20 years in prison, and a misdemeanor count of driving on a suspended license. Russell was also cited for driving left of center and driving a vehicle without registration. Russell, who was set to appear Friday in Garland County District Court, remained in custody Sunday in lieu of a $7,500 bond and a parole hold with an alcohol monitor required before she can be released. The affidavit notes Russell was charged with a sixth offense of DWI within 10 years, having been previously arrested for DWI on Oct. 25, 2011; Dec. 14, 2011; April 14, 2015; Sept. 12, 2020; and April 1, 2021. According to court records, Russell was convicted of felony DWI on Oct. 19, 2015, in Hot Spring County Circuit Court and sentenced to 12 years in prison, but was later paroled. (

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

New plans to develop a massive telescope on the moon could offer us more insight into the universe than ever before, even creating the possibility of space travel. Last year, NASA put aside $500,000 for research into the Lunar Crater Radio Telescope (LCRT), with the goal of eventually using robots to build the telescope on the far side of the moon. It would be placed in a 100 meter wide crater and could cost between $1 billion and $5 billion. Why not just build it here? Well, the Earth's ionosphere means that down here we are prevented from observing radio waves longer than 10 meters. Being able to see longer waves could offer new insight into mysterious dark matter and dark energy that make up the universe. We know the universe is made out of only 4 percent matter, and 95 percent of the universe is dark matter and dark energy, and we understand nothing about it. The plans are some way away from coming to fruition. Two expensive space crafts would be needed to set the telescope up, and only one has ever successfully landed on the far side of the moon.

We all know how music has a significant impact on our day-to-day lives. Aside from being an enjoyable past time, music is therapeutic. It would be a very sad and boring world without music. So it’s really no surprise that an Australian study found that people who go to concerts and music festivals tend to be happier people. The study “showed a connection between people’s happiness levels and whether or not they attend music events.”

New documents reveal that a Seattle driving school sold fake passing grades for hundreds of dollars to at least 2,000 applicants. In some cases, the fraudulent tests sold for thousands of dollars. The details were described in a Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) audit report conducted by the agency's Transportation Services Fraud and Investigations Unit in May. DOL auditors found the school's instructors sold the passing grades for as much as $2,000 to $4,000, according to the records, with the time frame of the alleged violations happening between 2017 to June 2021. DOL investigators also found the school sold the passing grades to applicants who never took tests at all, and in some cases, did not know basic driving rules. Steve Wong, the former owner of the school, voluntarily closed his business following the findings in the May to June audit, according to the DOL. The DOL said Wong no longer has a license to operate a driving school in the state. The DOL also asked Wong for a list of who purchased the passing grades. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

When shoplifting, it is best to wear nondescript clothing so as to make as little an impression as possible on any prospective witnesses. Which is to say you should not don a Rob Gronkowski football jersey when boosting watches from a Walmart in the Tampa Bay area. Police charge that 41-year-old Joel Lewis swiped two watches (worth $39.76) from a Walmart in Largo on Saturday afternoon. A store employee provided cops with a description of the suspect “to include the ‘Gronkowski’ jersey he was wearing.” Lewis, who was hiding in a bush near Walmart, was apprehended within minutes of the theft. Still in his Gronkowski jersey, Lewis was collared after a short foot chase. He reportedly confessed to stealing the watches and “apologized for his actions.” Lewis, charged with theft and resisting, is being held in the Pinellas County jail on $2150 bond. At the time of his arrest, Lewis was free on $2,500 bond in a pending felony battery case (he was arrested on September 20th for allegedly striking his girlfriend during an argument). Lewis’s lengthy rap sheet includes multiple felony convictions and state prison terms. (
