Kacey Jones April 27, 1950 – September 1, 2016, performing her song "Donald Trump's Hair"


Singer-Comedian Kacey Jones Dead at 66

By Stephen L. Betts
2 hours ago

Recording artist, songwriter, humorist and record producer Kacey Jones, who waged a nearly three-year battle with cancer through an entirely holistic approach, succumbed to the illness Thursday afternoon while in hospice care in Nashville. She was 66.

Born Gail Zeiler in Gilroy, California, her music career began at an independent label in the San Francisco Bay area. She relocated to Nashville in 1986 after a song she co-wrote, "I'm the One Mama Warned You About," became a Top 10 country hit for Mickey Gilley a year earlier. Also in 1986, Jones formed the comical country trio Ethel and the Shameless Hussies with friends Valerie Hunt and Becki Fogle. The trio recorded their sole album, Born to Burn in 1988 on the MCA label, with famed producer Jimmy Bowen. In addition to having her songs recorded by artists ranging from Cledus T. Judd to David Allan Coe, her successful solo career, which included releases on Curb Records, yielded nearly a dozen albums showcasing her singular gift for hilarity in song. From 1997's Men Are Some of My Favorite People, to later releases on her own IGO Records, which included the 2009 comedy-chart-topping Donald Trump's Hair, she remained a comic force, aiming her genius lyrics at numerous targets.

In 1999, Jones produced Pearls in the Snow: The Songs of Kinky Friedman, a tribute to the Texas musician-author which featured Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett, Dwight Yoakam, Delbert McClinton, Guy Clark and more. The album went to Number One on the Americana chart. In 2006, her Kacey Jones Sings Mickey Newbury was a poignant tribute to her influential songwriter friend, with an accompanying video for Newbury's "San Francisco Mabel Joy," featuring appearances from singer-actors Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Payne. As the founder of two music publishing firms, she earned platinum and gold records with cuts by Ray Stevens and John Michael Montgomery. In addition to IGO Records, she formed the Kinkajou label with Friedman.

Jones was a frequent guest on WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour and A Prairie Home Companion, while she also contributed original songs to the stage and screen. She penned tracks for the 2000 comedy cult hit, Sordid Lives, and for Nipples to the Wind, a play for which she also served as music supervisor. She was designated as Official Songstress of the Sweet Potato Queens, a 75,000-member organization with its origins in the series of best-selling books by Mississippi author Jill Conner Browne.


Cross gently, Kacey...

He just said that Hermine, albeit weakened by that time, could park itself off the Northeast coast for up to 72 hrs, and could potentially give NY, NJ, Delaware a FOOT of rain. That would translate into VERY serious flooding over Labor Day weekend.

Police: Ithaca student fatally stabbed in 'large fight' at Cornell


(CNN)One Ithaca College student was killed and another was injured after being stabbed during a "large fight" on the nearby Cornell University campus early Sunday in Ithaca, New York, officials from both schools said.

Cornell University Police were called to the intersection in front of Olin Hall, which houses Cornell's school of chemical and biomolecular engineering, just before 2 a.m. There, they found two men had been stabbed, according to a police news release.
Police say the fight broke out after a student-organized event at Cornell, according to a statement from Ithaca College.


First responders treated the victims, and police recovered the weapon used, the news release said. Efforts to obtain information on the suspect are ongoing, police said.
One victim was sent to a local hospital for treatment of "serious injuries," while the other was flown to Upstate Medical Center, a regional trauma center, to be treated for several stab wounds.


WW2 Fighter Ace/Biloxi Mayor Jerry O'Keefe dies at 93


Former Biloxi, Mississippi, Mayor Jerry O'Keefe, who received the Congressional Gold Medal for his service as a fighter pilot in World War II, died Tuesday. He was 93.

A granddaughter, Justice O'Keefe Duhon, told The Associated Press that he died early Tuesday.

As a young Marine pilot, O'Keefe shot down seven Japanese airplanes, The Sun-Herald reported


In 1976, he revoked a parade permit the Ku Klux Klan had secured. Klan members wound up being arrested, City Hall was vandalized and a cross was burned on O'Keefe's front lawn.


He also was a major donor to community causes, including the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, partially named in his honor. He raised millions of dollars for the museum and for other charities.

The gold medal, the highest honor bestowed by Congress, was presented to him in June 2015.

First on CNN: Feds investigate Manafort firm as part of Ukraine probe

Source: CNN.com

Washington (CNN)FBI and Justice Department prosecutors are conducting an investigation into possible US ties to alleged corruption of the former pro-Russian president of Ukraine, including the work of Paul Manafort's firm, according to multiple US law enforcement officials.

The investigation is broad and is looking into whether US companies and the financial system were used to aid alleged corruption by the party of former president Viktor Yanukovych.

Manafort, who resigned as chairman of Donald Trump's campaign Friday, has not been the focus of the probe, according to the law enforcement officials. The investigation is ongoing and prosecutors haven't ruled anything out, the officials said.


Anti-corruption investigators in Ukraine have alleged Yanukovych and members of his party ran a corrupt regime. He fled to Russia following a public uprising in 2014.

The FBI, Justice Department and Manafort declined to comment. A Washington attorney who represents Manafort and Yanukovych didn't respond to a request for comment.
