SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah beauty pageant winner charged last week with tossing homemade "bottle bombs" from a vehicle said she is relinquishing her crown.

Kendra McKenzie Gill, 18, called the Aug. 2 incident a "stupid mistake" and said she wanted to turn over her Miss Riverton title before pageant officials stripped her of it

Gill and three friends — John Patrick Reagh, Shanna Marie Smith and Bryce Christopher Stone, all 18 — were charged Friday with four felony counts of possession of an explosive device. They're accused of driving around town and throwing homemade bombs.

She's a beauty pageant babe, so I'm guessing nobody was suspicious when she was out shopping for duct tape, silcone and cotton. 


Gill topped a slate of nine beauty contestants in June in the Salt Lake City suburb, showing off years of piano training with a Scott Joplin number and taking home a $2,000 scholarship.

Contestants in the pageant — which is a preliminary of the Miss Utah and Miss America competitions — are required to sign a contract certifying they have not been convicted of a crime and don't have criminal charges pending against them. Pageant officials can revoke a title if a contestant is criminally charged during her reign.

The bad news for her:  She is no longer eligible to compete in the upcoming Miss Utah pageant.  The good news for her:  She IS now eligible to compete in the next Miss Baghdad Pageant.

If you are a big Duck Dynasty fan like me, then this will come as no surprise, JACK! If you haven't seen the show yet, give it a try. I thought it was going to be really stupid - and let's face it - it is! BUT... it is hilarious to watch! I must say, that after just a few episodes, I am hooked.

Ok, ok... back to the original reason for this post. Willie and the rest of the Robertson crew are finally getting their wish. They will be featured on Clint Bowyer's car for the Watkins Glen race. Clint will be in the no. 15 Peak "Duck Dynasty" Toyota. Even though Willie lost the camo limo race to Clint in an earlier episode of the show, it looks like the boys will get some track time anyway.


You can catch all the action this Sunday , August 11 at 2PM. The "CHEEZ-IT 355 AT THE GLEN" live from Watkins Glen International / Watkins Glen, NY on ESPN.

And check out the new season premiere of Duck Dynasty, Wednesday, August 14th, at 10PM on A&E.

Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles has gone solo! But... don't worry if you are a Sugarland fan because they are not breaking up. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush
say that they are still a country duo. Both Jennifer and Kristian have been working on solo projects recently, which included a solo release from Kristian back in March.

Jennifer Nettles' first solo song off of her new album is called 'That Girl.' Take a listen below...

Dateline:  Beaverton, Oregon....(....nice name for a town, Beaverton. I'm guessing it's difficult to tell someone you're from Beaverton while keeping a straight face).....Twenty-two year old Derrick Mosley needed some quick cash and decided to get it the easy way......steal it.  His plan was to hold up a store.  First, he had to decide what kind of store he wanted to hold up  "I know", he said, "How about a gun store.  Everybody's buying guns these days.  A gun store is probably loaded down with cash.  Yes, a gun store is definitely the wisest choice."

Next, if you're going to hold up a store, you need a weapon.  Mosley didn't have a weapon.  Well, he did have a baseball bat. That's better than nothing, isn't it.  I guess the idea here was to enter the store with a bat, smash one of the display cases, grab a gun from the case and use it to carry through with the hold-up.  WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG WITH THAT PLAN!!???

So, on Thursday afternoon, Mosley walks into Discount Gun Sales with his Louieville Slugger, announces that it's a hold-up and smashes a display case, reaches inside and grabs himself a gun.  Unfortunately for him, it's a display gun and it's not loaded.  Even more unfortunate for him, the manager on duty is carrying a gun and it IS loaded.  The manager drew his gun, ordered Mosley to drop is bat and lay down on the floor and stay there while 911 was called.  Mosley was being held at the Washington County, Oregon, jail, with bond set at $250,000, the sheriff's department said. He was charged with first degree robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.

So, Monte Carlo has a $50 million jewel thief.  We have this guy.


What a dope!  WHAT A BIG DOPE!!!!!
