MATTRESS MACK ISSUES A STATEMENT AND SAYS HE’S NOT TALKING ANY MORE!

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS – THE FIRE RULED AN ARSON?

STATEMENT BY JIM “MATTRESS MACK” MCINGVALE
ON THE INVESTIGATION INTO LAST WEEK’S GALLERY FURNITURE FIRE


Linda and I were informed yesterday by investigators from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Houston Fire Department’s Arson Division that they have discovered evidence that last Thursday night’s fire at Gallery Furniture’s I-45 warehouse was not accidental.

Now that an official investigation has been opened, we have no comment on the matter except to ask any individual with any information that might assist investigators to call 1-888-ATF-FIRE or Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS.

Linda and I also want to thank the brave men and women of the Houston Fire Department for their courageous efforts to save our store last week, as well as the thousands of Houstonians and fellow Texans who have expressed your support and encouragement for the Gallery Furniture family since then. Your kind words and prayers have kept us going through this challenging time.

Make no mistake: Gallery Furniture is strong, stable and excited about our future. We will overcome this hardship so we can continue serving our loyal customers.

YOLANDA ADAMS MISSING FROM PRAISE RADIO!

DID TWO POWERFUL WOMEN PART WAYS OR IS IT JUST A TEMPORARY THING?

The Insite is hearing rumblings from the Houston offices of Radio One.

Sources claim Grammy award winning gospel singer and morning show host Yolanda Adams has disappeared from the building.

Adams serves as an on air personality for Praise radio. Those close to the company say she vanished about a week ago after disagreeing with Radio One owner Cathy Hughes.

Hughes has been very vocal in her position against HR 848. It would be legislation out of Washington that would require radio stations to pay artists for airing their songs.

As many of you know Adams is a recording artist and would benefit from this act. However, the religious entertainer is also an employee in the radio industry.

Those who are familiar with the rift say Adams stood up as an artist and disagreed with Hughes who owns nearly 60 urban radio stations around the country.

Since taking her position Adams hasn’t been heard ‘live’ on the air.

The Insite is placing calls to officials with Radio One to see if we can get a response. Keep reading to get your update!

UPDATE: Officials with Radio One Houston would not comment about the case. However, a reliable source tells the Insite Yolanda Adams still works for the company but she’s not on the air for now!
