La Crosse, WI, United States / KICKS 106.3

A Virginia shoe store lost mostly shoes designed for the right foot over the course of two break-ins this summer. Clean Soles operator Rob Wickham says his store was raided by two people July 20 and by one person Aug. 25. He lost shirts, hoodies, a jacket and one complete sneaker pair, but the weird thing is that the thieves took 13 right shoes. Wickham says he typically keeps right shoes on display, and figures the thieves were in too big a hurry to think this one through. A Roanoke County police spokesperson says one 17 year old has been charged in the July burglary. Police have also released video of the Aug. 25 burglary, and we have it. Source: wric.com

Bishop Charles H. Ellis III, who officiated Aretha Franklin’s funeral last Friday has apologized to Ariana Grande for groping her and making jokes about her name. Following Ariana’s powerful performance of the late soul singer’s 1967 classic, “You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman,” the bishop went in for a hug. While it was meant to be innocent, cameras quickly caught his arm go around just above her waist with his fingers pressed on the side of her breast. The internet quickly responded to the gesture and accused Ellis of groping the singer. “It would never be my intention to touch any woman’s breast,” he said after the ceremony. “Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar but again, I apologize.” But that’s not all! The bishop was also sorry about making a joke about seeing Ariana’s last name in the program and thinking it was a new item on the Taco Bell menu. “I personally and sincerely apologize to Ariana and to her fans and to the whole Hispanic community,” Ellis said.

OK, parents, have you heard of “wasping?” Well, you should know what it is: The term and trend are new, seeming to have originated in Ohio, where police have found people using insect killer to get high. Yes, wasp killer. It is used by crystallizing wasp killer and combining it with meth, according to law enforcement officials. So far, three people were hospitalized after ingesting the dangerous mix. And across the country, chemists, first responders and law enforcement are worried that since the trend has hit the internet, more people will try it. Which is why we’re here to remind people what wasp killer is intended for: killing insects! Side effects of ingesting insect killer alone include seizures, possible paralysis, and in extreme cases, death. And it’s important to note, there’s no antidote for ingesting insect killer.
