ABCCountry Music Hall of Famer Emmylou Harris hits the stage with the stars of ABC’s Nashville this weekend in Music City. Clare BowenChris Carmack and more will play a benefit Saturday night at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley, as part of the annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival.

Money raised goes to Bonaparte’s Retreat, a nonprofit Emmylou founded in 2004 after the death of her beloved pup Bonaparte. Its mission is to rescue shelter dogs and adopt them into forever homes.

“Bonaparte had this really friendly demeanor, loved people, [was] very sociable, loved other animals. Once you have the experience of having a dog on the road with you, you don’t realize how lonely you’ve been without one. So he went everywhere with me. He was my constant companion for 10 years,” she reminisces.

The name “Bonaparte’s Retreat” is also a tip of the hat to the song that was a huge hit for Pee Wee KingKay Starr and Glen Campbell. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. CT on Saturday. You can find out more about Emmylou’s cause online at BonapartesRetreat.org.

Three charged following GEAR UP probe

PLATTE, S.D. (AP) — Attorney General Marty Jackley says three people have been charged in an investigation into a college readiness program that began after the deaths of a family of five at their home in Platte.

Jackley filed criminal complaints against 58 year old Daniel Guericke of White Lake, 43 year old Stephanie Hubers of Geddes, and 42 year old Stacy Lee Phelps of Rapid City. They’re charged with felonies for misconduct in the GEAR UP program.

All three have been released on bond.

Jackley earlier said his investigation had confirmed that the family’s patriarch, Scott Westerhuis, had killed his wife and four children with a shotgun before setting the family home ablaze and then shooting himself.

Westerhuis was business manager for Mid-Central Educational Cooperative, which managed the GEAR UP program that sought to improve college readiness of Native Americans.

Jackley says the investigation suggests Westerhuis and his wife conspired to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars and likely over $1 million.
