**It’s wedding season and we spent some time talking about brides, grooms, and unusual weddings –
Topping the news –
A 53-year-old woman named Tammy Lee Hinton got married on Saturday in Jackson, Michigan (--about 40 miles west of Ann Arbor. We don't know the groom's name.) The ceremony went off without a hitch. The reception . . . not-so-much.
Tammy Lee was wanted on a 3-year-old felony warrant for identity theft, but her trail had gone cold, and investigators thought she'd moved to Florida.
Then they got a decent tip that she'd be in town to get married on Saturday. They debated whether or not to bust her on her wedding day . . . AT her wedding . . . and ultimately decided it was the only way to make sure they nailed her.
So around 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, they headed to the church, waited for the ceremony to end, then went inside and confronted her.
Tammy acted surprised, and the cops even let her pose for photographs and take care of stuff inside the church. But they still arrested her . . . took her to jail . . . booked her . . . and took a mugshot.
They even gave her the option of changing her clothes, but Tammy declined. She even kept her veil on for the mugshot. Classic. The whole process only took 25 minutes, and her husband picked her up.
Then she failed to appear in court on Monday, so they hauled her back in yesterday.
The cops took some heat for making the bust right after the vows, but according to Public Safety Officer Rick Gillespie, quote, "We can't ignore it when we have good information . . . We had to do what we had to do." We agree!
(--Here's Tammy Lee's mugshot.)
We chatted about a couple a few years ago who got married in zero gravity. How? They rented the zero-g “vomit comet,” the aircraft that simulates zero gravity effect in space. It cost ‘em $60,000 to rent the plane for the ceremony!
**Dangerous heat is the order of the day this week. We talked about the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat stroke is worse and heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke.
What is heat exhaustion?
Heat exhaustion happens when your body gets too hot. It can be caused by physical exercise or hot weather. You may experience:
· Heavy sweating
· Feeling weak and/or confused
· Fast heartbeat
· Dark-colored urine, which indicates dehydration
Symptoms of heatstroke
· High fever (104°F or higher)
· Severe headache
· Dizziness and feeling light-headed
· A flushed or red appearance to the skin
· Lack of sweating
· Muscle weakness or cramps
· Fast heartbeat
· Fast breathing
· Feeling confused, anxious or disoriented
Heatstroke is when the internal temperature of the body reaches 104°F. It can happen when your body gets too hot during strenuous exercise or when exposed to very hot temperatures, or it can happen after heat exhaustion isn't properly treated. Heatstroke is much more serious than heat exhaustion. Heatstroke can cause damage to your organs and brain. In extreme cases, it can kill you.
**A debate has raged for years over elevator etiquette and we discussed it on the WIKY Morning Show. Here’s the article Diane found –
When men and women on an elevator are getting off on the same floor . . . who gets out first? You might think this important, raging debate has been settled, but some etiquette experts online disagree.
Obviously, the traditional 'ladies first' rule dates back to before elevators were invented. So if you're riding an elevator at work, letting women off first could imply that you're not treating your female coworkers as equals.
And if the elevator is crowded, it's a lot faster to unload the car based on how close you are to the door. That's more efficient in a work environment, and makes everyone happier. Stepping aside to be chivalrous just slows things down.
Plus, what if there are women behind you AND in front of you?
The experts are split on the topic. The etiquette expert Emily Post has set the standard for 140 years, but her website sides with the modern, practical viewpoint that the person closest to the door should be the first to exit.
Meanwhile, the website ElevatorRules.com went online six years ago, and they take a traditional approach: Ladies first, unless the man is blocking the door and has to exit first to make room.
