Small-town girl's big dream comes true: the release of her first single. Cheyenne (Adams) Parmley calls it "surreal." "It's something that I always wanted to do, but I always felt like it was just a dream." The 25-year-old Monticello, Ky., mother of two credits her mother, Katina, for her success. "It was a dream of hers first," Cheyenne said. "My whole family was very musical, so they always pushed me to do musical things." At Somerset (Ky.) High School, Cheyenne, Class of 2013, took choir under a cousin, Heather Massey Foister. At 16, Cheyenne auditioned for "The Voice," NBC's singing competition. "I made it through open casting and got a call back," she told the Commonwealth Journal. "I made it through the audition rounds before TV; I went home on the second round." Eventually, she married Blake Parmley[Roscoe "Ross" Allen, Andrew, Roscoe Samuel, Andrew "Jiff," Miles R., Garner, John, Giles, Hiel, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, John, John] and started a family. "I've been a stay-at-home mom for five years now," she said. "Music became more of a hobby." She's always kept recording equipment around -- "I have a mini studio in my room" -- and would upload her in-home performances to YouTube and Instagram. It was on the latter site that her take on "Shallow" was spotted by a representative with Off the Row Studio in Franklin, Tenn. "It has a breakout-artist program where they give you a discount as an up-and-coming artist to record there," she said. "It was kind of a different experience because of COVID. We each had big windows where we could see each other, but we never got to be in the same room with each other. I was in the studio, the engineer was in one room, the band was in one room, and the producer was in another room. Everybody could hear each other through headphones, but we never came in contact. But it was a super-fun experience." The recording took place over a single weekend with two songs -- one written by Melba Montgomery (who sang with George Jones) and Stephony Smith (who wrote "Big Star" and "It's Your Love") -- that was given to her by the studio. Called "I Can't Stay Away From You," the single dropped on all major music platforms. "I searched my own name at least 20 times [that day]!" In recording, Parmley got to perform with Grammy-winning instrumentalist Mark Prentice, guitarist Danny Parks and producer P.T. Houston. Another single Cheyenne recorded, "Grace and Grit," was co-written by the singer herself. "I've been sitting on the song since high school. I had the first verse and chorus; (the studio) had a staff writer help me finish." The second recording should be released in a couple of months, said Parmley. Fans can follow her on Instagram or Facebook.

  • Kris Parmelee, left, the Indianapolis community activist is among those circulating a petition seeking emergency measures to stop the surging violence across the city. That petition, created by the North Shadeland Alliance, got hundreds of signatures in less than 24 hours. Four people were recently shot, two of them fatally, in a business parking lot near 75th and Shadeland. A month earlier, Malik Parks, 23, was killed after being ambushed at an apartment complex near the same intersection. And the high-profile killing of a Subway employee along Shadeland last year also remains unsolved. "Of course we’re concerned about crime in our area, but we can’t stop the bleeding in our little section of town. It is a citywide problem," said Kris. The petition calls for the city to purchase a gunshot detection system, to authorize emergency resources for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, and ending low or no bail for repeat violent offenders. "It is literally a revolving door. It is not a figure of speech. It is a revolving door of criminals right now," she said. Court records show one of the men killed in the Shadeland double homicide was released on bond following a weapons charge less than three weeks before he was shot to death.

This time of the year, Houston chef Mark Parmley, whose work has included El Big Bad and The Capitol at St. Germaine, would be preparing for a summer of work at Anglers Lodge in Alaska where he'd work with some of the best seafood in the world -- and he'd bring some of that wealth back to his hometown. But the same day that gig fell through, James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Shepherd of Underbelly Hospitality called to line him up with the owners of South Fork Lodge, the Swan Valley, Ida., retreat late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel and fly fishing guide Oliver White purchased in 2020. Undoubtedly, Mark's years of experience preparing freshly catch at fishing lodges helped him land the job. But a good word from Shepherd, who'd appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in 2019 to demonstrate his signature Korean Braised Goat and Dumplings, didn't hurt. Host and guest had hit it off well enough that Shepherd learned about the job and recommended Mark who traveled to Los Angeles to interview for the job with Kimmel. " 'I appreciate finally meeting you and getting some time to talk about the future! Thank you for the opportunity señor and the lift home,' @jimmykimmel," Mark posted on one of his social media pages. Located in east Idaho just south of Yellowstone State Park and a 35-minute drive from the Wyoming border, South Fork Lodge is marketed for its world-class fly fishing. The adjacent Snake River is home to several types of trout, such as Yellowstone cutthroat, rainbow and brown. In addition to the onsite restaurant, other services and features include guided boat trips, a fully stocked fly fishing shop, hosted overnight camping in the canyon and rooms ranging from cabins to The River House, which can accommodate eight. Three meals a day are included, as is an open bar (except for premium selections). Out-of-staters will likely fly into Idaho Falls Regional Airport, which is 35 miles distant, or Jackson, Wyo. Shuttle service from either is available and flights to both airports typically connect through Salt Lake City or Denver. A two-day, three-night stay is $2,695 per person.

Perry Township trustees approved a contract with an engineering firm in their effort to save the 1835 mansion built by Dr. Jehiel "Hiel" Parmly [1799-1873; Eleazar, Jehiel, Stephen, Stephen, John, John] from erosion by Lake Erie's waves. The township purchased the home in 2002, but officials have not found a developer willing to buy and restore the dilapidated house at the end of Perry Park Road. In December 2020, the township was awarded $200,000 for the shoreline improvement project as part of the new Ohio capital budget bill. State Rep. Jamie Callender, R-Concord Township, helped secure that funding, said township Administrator Karen Sundy. As a starting point for the project, trustees entered into a $32,200 contract in March with KS Associates of Elyria to design an erosion-control plan, assist the township with seeking bids from contractors, and possibly provide construction supervision, Sundy said. The township will use a portion of its allocation from the capital bill to pay KS Associates. Sundy said the project likely will involve grading and sloping the bluff at a gentler angle and installation of armor stone to absorb and dissipate the power of Lake Erie's waves. William Lorimer bought the brick federal-style home in 1918, and developed the property into Camp Roosevelt for Boys. His son, Bill, purchased the camp from his father in 1946 and sold the mansion and 20 acres of surrounding land to Perry Township for $840,000 in 2002. The deal included allowing him to remain in the home until his death, in 2012.

Guess what everyone’s wearing at Little Theatre's "Masked Ball" in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Well if climbers need oxygen as they approach the summit of Mt. Everest, and stagecoach robbers don’t want to be recognized and hazmat cleaners need protection from biohazards -- they’d all be wearing masks! That’s who theatergoers met -- along with military snipers, body shop techs and birdwatchers -- in six one-act plays, all written by local playwright David Parmelee [Charles Melvin, Charles Tourot, Edmund James, Charles B., Asahel, Charles, Hezekiah, Joel, John, John]. While the Dec. 12 opener was streamed over Facebook and the Little Theatre's YouTube channel, 25 people were permitted to attend each performance at the theater that weekend. "We were able to give our audience social distance. We decided to put them in every third row, every third seat," David told the Times Leader, recalling a Zoom conversation he had with the theater's board members. "But what about the actors? We had to think about their safety." David said he first thought there was no way to put on a play with actors standing far apart and/or wearing masks. "What kind of play would that be?" His wife and fellow thespian Toni Jo Parmelee, came up with the solution. "Hardly looking up from her crossword puzzle," David remembered, she suggested plays in which masks would be a natural part of the costuming. "In about 10 minutes we had 10 scenarios," he said. "Deep-sea divers seemed too hard to pull off, but others were remarkably accessible." So he came up with six plots. Among them: an uncle teaching his nephew the ins and outs of robbing stagecoaches in the Wild West; a celebrity client hires a mountaineering guide to help her summit Mt. Everest; a military sniper who has a secret to reveal. The one-acts "ended up being pretty quirky, and a little bit dark. That's part of what living with COVID-19 for eight months does. They're about people at a distance, people who have a gulf or emotional chasm between them." (Photo credit: Angel Berlane Mulcahy / On My Cue Photography and Productions)
