Dan + Shay headline Wright-Patt Appreciation night at the Fraze Pavilion

Country Music Stars Dan + Shay will headline the second Wright-Patt Appreciation

Night at the Fraze Pavilion Sept. 14 to honor our local Airmen with an incredible night of music and celebration.

Last year, 4,000 local Airmen filled the Fraze Pavilion for Wright-Patt Appreciation Night at the Fraze, an exciting concert in celebration of their service to our country. This year, our community will once again come together to honor our military with another amazing concert. The concert will be one of many events in the Dayton Region that week, and gives the region an opportunity to show support for the region’s military community. Other events occurring that week include Life Cycle Industry Days (LCID), Wright-Patt Appreciation Night and Concert, and the U.S. Air Force Marathon.

"The City of Kettering is honored to join forces with our regional partners again this year to celebrate the men and women who serve our country," said Kettering Vice-Mayor Rob Scott. "We are proud to host the Wright-Patt night at the Fraze event recognizing our Hometown Heroes." The concert is made possible through the generous support of sponsors include Montgomery County, Heidelberg Distributing Company, JobsOhio, Kettering Health Network, Premier Health, The Big Hoopla, Lockheed Martin, SelectTech Service Corp, the University of Dayton, and K99.1FM.

“Montgomery County salutes our military men and women and we are proud to honor and celebrate them and their families through Wright-Patt Appreciation Night,” said Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman. “We are incredibly grateful for the sacrifices they make each and every day to protect all of us here and abroad.”

Up to 4,000 tickets will be donated to Airmen and their families as well as other Wright-Patt military personnel through the base. Wright-Patt Night at the Fraze will feature a military vocalist singing the National Anthem.

"The support our Airmen receive from the Hometown Heroes Program and the entire community throughout the Miami Valley provides an opportunity for our Airmen to attend and participate in various events -- from baseball games to Broadway shows to concerts, which enhance Airmen's morale and welfare," said Col. David Anzaldua, vice commander, 88th Air Base Wing. “Delivering a bright, polished sound that owes as much to contemporary pop as anything in the classic country handbook, Dan + Shay is the country singing and songwriting duo of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney,” Billboard Magazine wrote. The duo has had two platinum singles and one gold, and has been nominated for numerous awards. Their hits include “19 You + Me,” “Nothin’

Like You,” and “From the Ground Up.” Their most recent album is “Obsessed.”

Photo: Tour de France cyclist shares shocking photo of veiny legs

People across the world marvel at athletes’ physiques and rightfully so. They train months, even years, to get in great shape.

However, what people don’t always see is the grueling effect it has on the body. Polish cyclist Pawel Poljanski changed that this week when he shared a picture of his veiny, muscular legs on Instagram

Poljanski, who is competing in the Tour de France, captioned his photo: “After sixteen stages I think my legs look (a) little tired.”

In just 21 hours, the photo garnered more than 22,000 likes on Instagram and hundreds of comments. 

The image was also shared on Twitter, where users expressed awe and disgust.

Air Force Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro receives Pat Tillman Award at 2017 ESPYs

During the 2017 ESPY Awards Wednesday night, comedian and television host Jon Stewart presented U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro with the Pat Tillman Award for service. 

>> Read more trending news 

Del Toro was severely injured while on tour in Afghanistan in 2005 when his military truck drove over a bomb. Del Toro lost most of his fingers and more than 80 percent of his body was severely burned. He went into a coma for three months and was given a 15 percent chance of survival. When he awoke from the coma, he was told he likely wouldn’t be able to breathe or walk again on his own. 

Del Toro not only did both, he also used sports as rehabilitation, later competing in the Invictus Games, a sports competition for wounded service members. In 2014, he won a silver medal in powerlifting, and in 2016, he won gold in the shot put.

He was awarded Wednesday for his perseverance, military service and athletic pursuits, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“He found a way not just to survive against the odds, but to thrive. He is a study in strength, tenacity, bravery and service,” Stewart said, calling Del Toro “a soldier who has gone through pain and struggling you would not believe just to survive and be here tonight.”

Del Toro said he was honored and humbled to receive the award. 

“Receiving this award is still strange for me. I don’t see myself as someone special,” he said at the awards show. “Thank you for letting this guy who just had a bad day at work feel like someone special tonight.”

Del Toro talked about what it felt like to be tapped for the award last month.  

“I’m humbled for even being considered for this prestigious award named after Pat Tillman, a man I admire, but to actually receive this honor is unbelievable,” Del Toro said in a statement. “When I heard that Pat Tillman gave up a career in the NFL to serve his country after the 911 attacks, it gave me so much pride to call him a brother in arms. He truly is a shining example of Service Before Self. To Mrs. Tillman and the Pat Tillman Foundation, I give you my pledge that I’ll always try to live up to the true meaning of the Pat Tillman Award for Service in everything I do, and to represent his spirit to the best of my ability.”

Del Toro still serves in the military as an Air Force technician.

Pat Tillman, a former NFL player, left the league in 2002 to enlist in the Army after the Sept. 11 attacks. He was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.

U.S. Quidditch Cup, based on Harry Potter books, headed to Texas in 2018

Harry Potter fans, rejoice! The U.S. Quidditch Cup is headed to the Sports Capital of Texas next year.

The organization announced the news earlier this week, revealing that the event will be held April 14-15 at the Round Rock Multipurpose Complex.

“We are honored to host the players, families and fans in Round Rock for the U.S. Quidditch Cup in April 2018,” Round Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Nancy Yawn said in a release. “How exciting that the year of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter, the Sports Capital of Texas gets to announce that the magical, competitive Quidditch national championships will be held here!”

U.S. Quidditch announced finalists for the location of the cup in May, which included Lubbock, Round Rock and Wichita Falls. The finalists were selected based on bids, which were evaluated on location of the bid, the quality of facilities, the amount of financial support and the level of community support, according to the release. Round Rock beat out the others mainly because of the ample room of its facility, it says. 

Though Round Rock has yet to start its own official team, the Austin area is home to two national championship winning teams: Texas Quidditch and Texas Cavalry. In the 2016-17 season, Texas had more teams registered with USQ than any other single state in the league, according to U.S. Quidditch. 

The Quidditch tournament, which first came to life in 2005, is a real-world adaptation of the game Harry Potter and his friends played in the popular book series. The magical sport involves two teams who “fly on brooms,” competing to score the most goals. It can be described as a cross between rugby, basketball and dodge ball.
