May 15, 2005

Hi All,

Seems like the weekend just got here and it's nearly gone! The older I get, the faster time flies by and the slower I get.. somehow, that just doesn't seem fair. Wouldn't it be great if we could be like "Orkins" (Mork from Ork)? They were born old and got younger as they got wiser! Now that's what I call a great plan! ThinkingSmileFace.gif (2007 bytes)

On with the news...

Vince Koehler Obituary - Funeral and Visitation Times

Vincent D Koehler Sr.
November 23, 1939 - May 11, 2005

Vince Koehler, at the age of 65 peacefully passed away on May 11, 2005 while at home with his wife and family. Vince waged a battle against cancer for the past two years, and defied the odds through a courageous will to live and the prayers of many.

The visitation will be at McGilley funeral home on 123rd and State Line on Sunday from 3:00 - 6:00. The funeral will be at St. Agnes Catholic Church of Roeland Park at 51st and Mission Road at 11:00 AM on Monday.

In 1992 when Vince suffered from cardiac arrest, a courageous young man by the name of Jason Warrick found Vince and performed CPR to keep him alive. Police officer Mike Ember aided Jason. The family is forever grateful for the time we've had to experience Vince's life journey through 2005 where fourteen grandchildren got to know and fall in love with their grandpa.

Vince went to Visitation Grade School, Rockhurst High School, Rockhurst College, and UMKC where he earned his MBA. Always striving to be the best in his career, Vince was recognized for his unbelievable work as a member of the Ambassador Club at B.F. Ascher Company, and the Presidents Club of ADP.

Vince was a member of the Knights of Columbus John Roe Council, Breakfast at 8:00 Club, Sertoma Club, Honorary Directors of Rockhurst College, Tribe of Mic-O-Say, Science Fiction Club, KC Film Society, and KC Film Critics Circle. Vince served on the school board of St. Agnes and Scout Cub Master 1977 - 1986 where he was awarded the Pelican, a Catholic adult leader award.

Vince's passion for movies and the arts was incredible. His passion was lived out as a movie critic where he served as a co-producer of Entertainment Spectrum a show on American Cablevision, and with the Johnson County Gazette where he wrote weekly columns that included reviews of movies, theater, restaurants, and travel. Even though Vince was severely ill, he wrote his column up to the last hours of his life and the columns can also be found on his website at www.entertainmentspectrum.com
Vince will always be remembered for his cartoons that are mailed out each Christmas season that framed his beloved family and friends within a movie set where his imagination could describe his love for everyone.

Vince was proceeded in death by his Mother and Father Dr. William and Olive Koehler, his brother Jack Koehler, his sisters Mary Katherine Elwell and Betty Kopp, and his wife's parents Gerald and Rosetta Altman.

Survivors include: His beloved wife Marieann Koehler who was the love of his life. Vince and Marieann were inseparable and the love between them could be seen in their actions to serve each other and in the sparkle of each of their eyes when their eyes met. His brother Dr. William Koehler Jr., his uncle Deacon George Kopp who basically acted as his father after his own dad's death at age 5, daughter Gerry McGraw and husband Chris, daughter Mary Kay Mitchell and husband John, son Vince Jr. and wife Brenda, son Paul and wife Renee, son John and fiancé Kimberly Miller. Grandchildren Jeff, Michael, Danny, Mark, Alex, Reagan, Mallie, Bailey, Alicia, Brittney, Abigail, John, Natalie and Lucia.

The family suggests donations to the following:

PRECIOUS LORD
WITH LOVE TO VINCE KOEHLER

Last night we received word (See family letter below) of the passing on of a wonderful loving and generous man. He was full of life and wonder and loved helping others and did just that until his departure.He is now home with his maker and looking down on all with a happy heart.

Note: Asking nothing in return, Vince loved devoting part of his life promoting tons of rising country music artist and many others in the entertainment world. Visit his site at
http://www.entertainmentspectrum.com/index/music/522/countrycornernewsapril2005.html  

We will miss you Vince
With Love and Prayers
Joe Tinoco, Tamra Holden and Fans and Staff.
Below is Letter from Vince's Loving Family


Family & Friends:

We are sad to let you know that Vince passed away around 2:20 PM on May 11, 2005. In his last days, his breathing was labored. We are happy that he is peaceful and in a better place.

As usual, today he had a nice breakfast and enjoyed homemade waffles. He always enjoyed his food. I felt as long as he liked to eat he would make it longer.

Well God had other ideas. He is at peace and resting after worrying so much about his health. We know that Vince is in the best hands now and blessed with Gods Heavenly Grace.

He left me in good hands and always took such good care of me. He was always such a gentle and kind person. He was able to accomplish anything he wanted to do even if everyone said he couldn't.

Even this morning while I was having my checkup at the doctor he had our daughter taking dictation of his thoughts for the country corner section article for the next issue of the Johnson's County Gazette newspaper. The article he worked on this morning is posted on his website: http://www.entertainmentspectrum.com/index/music/522/countrycornernewsapril2005.html  

The family plans on continuing Vince's website. My son, John, who ran his website will keep it up to-date. http://www.entertainmentspectrum.com

Our niece Marilynn and nephew Jay were visiting with Vince when he peacefully looked up and passed away to be with our Lord.

Thanks for everyone's thoughts and prayers during this time. He really appreciated it and we felt your prayers.

I will update everyone on the funeral arrangements when I know them tomorrow.

God Bless,

Marieann

Jaci Rae

I officially made it to best seller status Wednesday!

JaciRae.jpg (8009 bytes)Hi everyone, I just wanted to share the news with you. I officially made it to best seller status yesterday and so I am officially a best seller on the national charts! Unbelievable!

It's an incredible thing and thank you to every one of you who stood by me, held my hand as we waited with baited breath and watched as I went from out of 10 million books on sale this week from 107 thousand to 19 thousand then to #19 and then on to Best seller author status (too many numbers to count)!

VoiceAmerica also has just asked me to do a 13 weeks series on their network, so if you aren't able to hear my live on Thursday nights because it's family time or whatever you will be able to as it will be a Wed show during the afternoon and it's broadcast and syndicated to over 10 million people. It's quite an honor! I haven't signed the contracts yet, but lawyers are looking over them and my team is talking to me about my time (I am over extended as it is)

But even if I say no (don't think so yet), you can hear me live on my weekly show every Thursday night. Get about 55 thousand listeners but 3.7 million a month.

At any rate. I just wanted to say thank you all my family and friends who helped spur me on! You are the greatest and I share this victory with you! It's yours as well! Gotta go, there is a big party about to happen and I have to go! Many blessings. Me :-)

Jaci has officially become a Best Seller! Check her website: www.jacirae.com for further details on Jaci's appearances on radio, television, concerts and book store appearances throughout the U.S as well as reading her critically acclaimed articles.

Jaci's books have received rave reviews in such premier newspapers as The Washington Post and The Tennessean. Jaci's music and books are available at many retail establishments across the US, including Barnes and Noble, Sam Goody, Borders, Tower Records and more. You can also enjoy Jaci's music, one song at a time by downloading from iTunes or any of the other download sites!

Ernie Ashworth, Grand Ole Opry Star This is a great CD! The first 2 songs are Terrific. All in all its a great CD and it should do well for her.

Richard Leiby of The Washington Post has this to say about Winning Points With The Woman In Your Life One Touchdown At A Time. Country songbird Jaci Rae's latest book, Winning Points With The Woman In Your Life One Touchdown At A Time, is sure to drive football loving men right into their end zones! The award-winning singer's 10th book tackles the subject of improving romantic relationships. Cleverly using football plays, scrimmage strategies and tactical maneuvers as analogies, she shows the male reader how to score big points with their woman.

Chris Allen, Big Kat Morning Show, KTCO, Big Kat 98.9 Jaci Rae does her finest work to date...these are the songs that formed her, no wonder why there is so much heart and soul in them.

Raymond Phillips, Country Harvest Radio, Australia Can't Push a River" is truly a first class product, something Jaci can really be proud of from the first to the last track. It has made my task hard to choose which one should be used first for airplay. Definitely marked for regular rotation on Country Harvest. CONGRATULATIONS on "Can't Push a River".

AshleyRobertson.jpg (8074 bytes)Born on the 3rd of March in 1984 in Winnipeg, Ashley Robertson is already being praised as the new Shania Twain and LeAnn Rimes. She learned to play the piano at only 6 years and then took lessons for guitar, dobro, m6-mandolin and banjo. She found her passion for country music by listening to such great stars as Patsy Cline, Johnny Horton, Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn. From 1993 to 1997 Ashley worked as a TV reporter for Craig Media’s popular show MTN Kids Pulse News in Manitoba. Ashley Robertson then was admitted as a member to the Manitoba Country Music Association (MCMA) in 2000, followed by appearances at various Songwriters Nights. As her talent was recognized and a good chance to advance as far as to the range of the top ten artists was reckoned Ashley Robertson was encouraged to resettle at
Nashville, TN by the MCMA.

Hardly relocated in Nashville appearances at "The Boardwalk", "The Broken Spoke", "The Gibson Blue Grass Showcase", "The Bluebird Café" as well as Florida's "Sunshine Opry" und "Catfish Johnny's" followed.

At this time hit producer Allen Frizzell spotted he and did not hesitate for a single minute to contract her. Allen Frizzell by the way comes from the same family of musicians as David Frizzell. Ashley Robertson’s album then was arranged and recorded at the Hilltop Studios in Nashville.

Ashley, who in the meantime became a member of the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) and the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN) is presently studying marketing, piano, banjo, guitar and sound engineering at Nashville’s renowned Belmont University.

On her current album "Ashley Robertson" she presents her no. 1 hits "But He", which she wrote herself, "Little League Tryouts" and "Living in Misery". The album also contains the first-class video to "Living in
Misery".

EXPLAINING THE MONKEY.

I recently wrote a little story titled “The Monkey in the Corner”.
* For reference, I am placing it at the bottom of this page.

Like life itself, the tale lacks a good ending and has hardly any plot. This goes against the rules of good fiction.

In our ignorance, Misty and I got some good laughs out of it, before we realized it was flawed.

The bulk of the trouble was caused by the appearance of a monkey in what was meant to be a serious commentary on psychiatry. I’m sorry about it, and, by way of atonement, I will admit this: It wasn’t my fault.

That monkey had no business in this story, and I’m not sure how he got there. He does seem familiar. I think he’s from a monkey story I wrote some time back. I let him stay in because he didn’t have any lines, but I won’t make that mistake again.

Then again... sometimes in life we just need a monkey.

Jack Blanchard


* THE MONKEY IN THE CORNER.

The patient, Mr. Blanchard, droned on from the psychiatrists couch: “...the voice in my mind keeps repeating things. It’s very annoying... and sometimes it gets on a song... always a song I hate...It just...”

Doctor Barney popped out of his semi doze: “You hear voices in your head?”

“Oh, not schizophrenic voices”, said the patient. “Just my normal internal monologue.”

“Yeah, right. Normal”, thought the shrink, in his own thought voice, which was being sarcastic.

That’s when the good doctor saw the monkey in the corner.

At first it looked like a shadow from the potted palmetto, but then he saw that it was clearly a monkey,
and it was looking back at him.

Mr. Blanchard was still rambling away in that whiny monotone that made psychiatrists demand the big bucks, but Dr. Barney’s attention was on the new wildlife that had somehow gotten into his office.
His own inner voice was busy: “Could I be hallucinating? Do doctors do that? Should I call Animal Control or check myself into the squirrel college?”

The monkey rolled back his lips and tossed the doctor a grotesque grin.

The doctor said to the patient, “Mr. Blanchard, I want you to sit up now. That’s it. Sit straight up and look around the room. Now, tell me what you see”

“Well,” said the patient, “I see a nice, well-decorated office, and a beautiful sunny day through the window.
I get it! You’re absolutely right! I should be happy! I can CHOOSE to be happy! I can turn my back on petty annoyances, hold my head up high, and take my rightful place in society! Thank you, doc. You’re a genius!
I guess I won’t be coming back.” And he left, closing the door behind him. Dr. Barney and the monkey both looked at the door.

Mrs. Finch, the receptionist, noting that the patient was leaving before the hour was up said, “Is everything all right, Mr. Blanchard?”

He said, “I didn’t mention the monkey.”
She said, “Thank you.”

ANN-MARITA CLAIMS THE TOP SPOT

ann-marita.jpg (12365 bytes)Australia’s Ann-Marita has gone all the way to Number 1 on the Australia International Country Music Chart! She is also Number 20 on the Worldwide Mainstream Most Played "Major & Indie" Artists Chart. Both charts are compiled from small to medium market stations by Gary Bradshaw.

Ann-Marita has her own style of country. While she grew up listening to Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Kenny Rogers, her influence by other musical styles, like rock and blues, color the sound that is so unique you instantly know it’s her.

Ann-Marita describes her debut CD as being about “growing up, and having to do it a little faster than expected. It’s about heartbreak, survival and finding your place in the world … When someone tells me that they were moved by one of my songs, …I know that I’ve hit the mark.” Ann-Marita wrote all of the songs for her self-titled debut album, released in June 2004.

Ann-Marita has already traveled around the world, going to school and performing. She was born and raised on a farm in the Norwegian mountains. She then spent many years living in a small mining community north of the Arctic Circle. At fifteen, she spent a year living in Iowa, as a foreign exchange student. This was followed by Gothenburg, Sweden, where she landed a two-year contract as the lead vocalist in an international show band performing on cruise ships in northern Europe. Ann-Marita landed in Australia in 2003.

Ann-Marita’s appears on the cover of the April edition of Blazing Boots and is featured in Country Music Capital News, Australia’s top country music magazine. She has also appeared in several magazines and websites, including the Inside Connection, Smother.net, and CountryReview.com. Ann-Marita is about to return to the studio to begin recording her sophomore album.

For more information on Ann-Marita, please contact Laura at wildfirepublicity@comcast.net or 615-825-0019. Photos, her CD, Face in the Crowd MP3, and interviews available to radio and the media by request.

SKYLA SPENCER’S DEBUT ALBUM YOU SAID YOU’D CALL ME

Skyla SpencerSkyla Spencer, an aspiring country music artist, shut down her dance studio, packed up her belongings, and moved from West Virginia to Music City two and a half years ago. Well on her way to being country’s next big star, Skyla is making a mark overseas and here in the United States. Some of her past releases have topped such charts as Indie World, Inside Country, Indie Tracker, and also charting on ECMA, Power Source Indie Chart, and the New Music Weekly Chart.

Skyla Spencer’s debut album, You Said You’d Call Me, is slated for release in June. Her next single, “You Said You’d Call Me,” will be hitting radio in June or July. Skyla says: ‘“You said You’d Call Me” was a blast to record! I feel many people will be able to relate to this song - both women and men". When asked how she describes her music, Skyla replies “My music is fun, energetic, & up-lifting. I love a sense of humor, and that shows through on some of my songs. I also enjoy writing ballads. Some of the songs on this album are from real life experiences, but it’s through these experiences, either good or bad, that I have become stronger. My first album is dedicated to the people I have lost in my life and to the troops who sacrifice so much for us.” The album features a song titled “If I Were Rain” that is a special dedication to the troops. It explains how, in the tough times that we are facing, the one thing that we can do is to pray for one another. “If I ! Were Rain” will be hitting Christian radio in July, and country radio in the fall.

Skyla Spencer showcased at CRS 2004, and has been an active participant in Fan Fair/CMA Music Fest for the last three years. This year, Skyla will be showcasing on the CCMA stage on June 8th, where she will be performing two original songs from her debut album. Skyla is scheduled to be at the Convention Center during the CMA Fest on Friday, June 10th and on Sunday, June 12th; more dates and times to come. She will also be appearing at the Texas Troubadour Theater for a meet-in-greet on Friday June 10th. Fans may also catch a glimpse of Skyla on the billboard next to the Ryman from May 15th-June 15th.

NEW FEATURES ADDED TO ANGRY COUNTRY

AngryCountry is preparing a new service that reaches out to music fans and helps promote artists at the same time. In preparation for its scheduled launch in July, Angry Country is seeking updated artist bios and digital photos (photos must be large enough for fans to print at home or use as a computer desktop image.)

Visitors to Angry Country come to the site looking for country newcomers as well as the current chart-toppers. All country music related genres are covered on the site, including bluegrass, Texas country, and Christian Country. Angry Country is currently seeking more new artists to review and promote. They are accepting materials for contests and other promotions for the summer and fall months.

The name “Angry Country” comes from the less common interpretation of the word: sharp; keen; stimulated. Enraged by the lack of real news and updates on country music artists, Angry Country decided to create a public forum for that information to be gathered and distributed. While the website was created out of frustration, the anger, in the traditional sense of the word, has subsided a bit as they've begun to learn how Nashville works. But their attitude and focus remains the same: Great music should always be heard. Angry Country is not impressed by an artist's ranking on the charts, or their power in the industry. It's about the music. If the music is great, they want to hear it; and they want their readers to know it's out there!

AngryCountry is currently scheduling interviews and accepting showcase invitations for the 2005 CMA Music Festival aka Fan Fair. Press kits are being accepted at 1205 Rose Lynn Lane, Birmingham, AL 35215-5907. Advertisers can contact Michael Allison at 205-853-0584.
