REPUBLIC NASHVILLE Dir./Promotion LOIS LEWIS-WHITE is making international headlines, stemming from a perfume fiasco that happened during a radio promo trip to DENVER for the ELI YOUNG BAND on MARCH 8th.

Additionally, they made a copy of LEWIS-WHITEs ID, shut down the security lane for an hour, and called in bomb experts to investigate the perfume.A PHOENIX news affiliate caught wind of the story and interviewed LOIS about her experience. The video has since made its way around the globe, even making headlines in the UNITED KINGDOM, YESTERDAY (3/17). Check out the full story here.

OK, that may be a bit of a stretch but cops say wild packs of Chihuahuas are causing quite a problem.
Animal control workers in Maricopa County, Arizona, say they took over 6,000 calls from the Maryvale section of Phoenix complaining about abandoned Chihuahuas.
"We compared the number of calls we got in 2013 from that area to similar areas in town, and the calls from Maryvale were three times higher than surrounding areas," Melissa Gable told ABC 15 in Phoenix. “Part of it is these animals aren’t spayed or neutered, so they’re out looking for a mate and are having babies, which also contributes to the problem,” she continued.
Another problem is what to do once they round up the little critters. Most of the cities rescue facilities can’t take any new dogs because of overcrowding there and in their foster homes.
However, residents want something done. They say packs of 8-12 of the hounds have been chasing their kids on the way to school.
Officials are still working on a plan to deal with the dogs. And no, making a run for the border isn’t one of them.
