Parmalee for Free at Miami Valley Gaming

 K99.1FM and Miami Valley Gaming are proud to present PARMALEE for FREE on Tuesday, September 20th in The Grandstands at MVG (Just off I-75 at Exit 29). This is an all ages FREE show- all you have to do is show up! Doors open at 6:30pm and the show will start around 7:30pm.

More about Parmalee:

From this tiny town that’s home to a gas station, two blinking yellow lights, and a small tin- roofed barn dubbed Studio B, country rockers Parmalee launched their long journey to Nashville. The near-fatal robbery Parmalee experienced after a show would have destroyed most bands. But brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox and longtime friend Josh McSwain didn’t call it quits. Instead it reinforced their intense motivation and dedication to one another and to their determination to succeed.   Each obstacle that delayed Parmalee’s arrival to Nashville was an extra mile that allowed the groundbreaking sounds of artists like Jason Aldean and Eric Church to pave the way for the worlds of country radio and Parmalee’s brand of country music to meet at the perfect crossroad.  Parmalee’s country rock sound has its roots in the bluegrass, traditional country, southern rock and blues covers the guys grew up hearing their families play.

As 'Sully' premieres, passengers of Flight 1549 remain grateful

The movie "Sully" premieres in theaters nationwide Friday night, and the heroic emergency landing has special meaning for Charlotte.

Many of those on board during the "miracle on the Hudson" were headed home to Charlotte that day eight years ago when 155 passengers stood ankle deep in freezing water, perched on the wings of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 as it floated in the Hudson River.

"I get chills every time I watch this," passenger Vicki Barnhardt said as she watched the movie trailer.

Barnhardt said she's not really sure she even wants to see the movie, because she's not sure how she'll react.

"I was thinking I was going to die and I'd never see my children," Barnhardt said. "You know, those are the things that certainly bring back emotions, which I suspect may happen, or those thoughts and feelings will come back as I watch the movie."

The movie, which stars Tom Hanks, focuses on the pilot, Chesley  "Sully" Sullenberger, who managed to land Flight 1549 safely on the Hudson after bird strikes took out both engines seconds after takeoff.

Passenger Ben Bostic said he can't help but remember the uncertainty he felt that day.

"There was a lot of stuff running through my mind," Bostic said. "That was the most terrifying part of the ordeal. Like, not knowing."

For Bostic, and many others on the plane, the years after "the miracle on the Hudson" have been marked by deep gratitude for second chances at life.

Jim Whitaker is a Charlotte architect who boarded Flight 1549 as a last-minute standby passenger. 

"You realize how thankful you are that, 'Well, I'm alive. My family's still here. I still have my faith,'" Whitaker said.

Whitaker's story includes more than his own survival. Just before impact he clutched to his chest the infant son of the panicked woman sitting next to him.

"Of all the people on that plane, the smallest, most defenseless, the one that needed the most help was the little bitty baby sitting next to me," Whitaker said.

Flight 1549 has left its passengers feeling both blessed and, like the plane itself, scarred, but also changed.

"I take more risks now, I think," Bostic said. "I'm more open to doing a lot of things because you never know how long I've got to be here."

As for Sully, the passengers agreed without hesitation that his actions were heroic and that he, not they, deserves the spotlight of a Hollywood movie.

Flight 1549's lasting legacy may rest most profoundly in the hearts of its survivors.

 "No matter what happens, whether it's this event or anything else, I don't want something to stop me from living the life that I'm meant to live," Barnhardt said.

A New Hampshire beach will be topless this weekend

Go Topless Day is headed to Hampton Beach for a second year.

Beachgoers will be topless all day Sunday, according to the event’s Facebook page.

>> Read more trending stories

The event will take place in more than 300 cities across the country as part of the “Free the Nipple” movement. Participants aim to exercise their “legal rights, celebrate, and to raise awareness about the double standard that says men's nipples are normal and safe and women's are obscene and dangerous.” New Hampshire is a topfree state, meaning it's legal to go topless at any time. 

Last year, dozens of women took part at Hampton Beach, despite the rainy and cold weather.

On Sunday, the weather at the beach is expected to be mostly sunny with temperatures in the low 80s, according to Chief Meteorologist Kevin Lemanowicz.

For more information on the event, visit the Go Topless Day Hampton Beach Facebook page.

 

Coach strips to underwear to protest Olympic wrestling match

It's common for emotions to run high during the final seconds of any Olympic event. Sometimes, outcomes are contested.

But one man undressed Sunday afternoon as he contested the final scoring of a wrestling match.

In the 65kg freestyle wrestling bronze medal match, Uzbekistan’s Ikhtiyor Navaruzov beat Mongolia’s Mandakhnaran Ganzorig 8-7 in a match that ended in controversy and two Mongolian coaches taking off their clothes at the Olympic venue.

In the final seconds of the match, Ganzorig led by one and began dancing to celebrate his imminent medal. That celebration didn't last long.

According to The Associated Press, Uzbekistan challenged the scoring. Officials awarded Navaruzov a penalty point, which also gave him the bronze medal because tie matches are decided by the wrestler who last scored a point. 

Then began the unlikely turn of events.

Two Mongolian coaches stormed the mat in protest and began angrily shedding their clothes, with one getting all the way down to his blue briefs while the crowd chanted "Mongolia! Mongolia!"

That led to match officials awarding yet another penalty point.

Police eventually escorted the coaches from the mat.

What makes an Olympic swimming pool 'fast'?

The oldest Olympic swimming records are from the 2008 games in Beijing. Setting new record times has become a bit of a trend since then.

Yes, these are some of the most capable swimmers on the planet. But experts think the pools themselves might have something to do with it, too.

"It's by far the fastest pool in the world. And when I say fast, I'm talking about deep water," NBC's Rowdy Gaines told NPR in 2008.

>> Read more trending stories  

Since the Beijing games, all the Olympic pools have been 3 meters deep, the recommended Olympic depth set by swimming's world governing body.

By accident or by design, it's deep enough that the waves the swimmers generate don't rebound off the bottom, so the water at the surface stays calmer.

Lane lines, unoccupied buffer lanes on either side and special gutters along the edges of the pool all help reduce the effect waves and turbulence have on the swimmers.

And the benefit would seem to be in the numbers. During the Rio Olympics, swimmers set more than 10 new world or Olympic records.
