Run the river with the playgirl model & other tidbits

The man who sent Playgirl magazine into bankruptcy after he "posed nude" for them. Is having his annual Tennesse river run this weekend in Savannah, Tn. Country singer Daryl Worley has been hosting this event for a few years now and it brings in a lot of tax revenue to Hardin County, Tn every September. Country singer Sara Evans appears to be settling into her new life in Mountain Brook, Al as the wife of legendary Alabama QB Jay Barker. I recently spoke to Mr Barker at a dinner a few weeks ago. You want meet a nicer former football star than him. His marriage ended pretty badly just like Evans did. His ex wife was having an affair on him with a tennis instructor from the Mountain Brook country club. While Im on the subject of news out of Birmingham. Birmingham City Council President Carol Smitherman was forced into a run off next month by newcomer Sheila Tyson. This race is huge for Mrs Smitherman in more ways than one. Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford goes on trial early next month in Tuscaloosa on corruption charges. Its widely expected he'll be convicted in this trial. If that were to happen. The Birmingham City Council President would automatically assume control as Mayor upon the conviction of the current Mayor. I know the rule of thumb is to go against the incumbent when their forced into a runoff. I could be wrong on this but I think Mrs Smitherman will be the exception to the rule in this case. She is not mentioned in any of the corruption charges facing current Birmingham officials and given her and her husbands name id in the city. I think she'll pull it out in the end next month and win a new four year term. Although if she were to lose and Langford goes down then look for chaos to break out on the City Council next month.
