Lost and found! Miss Nevada to have crown

clipped from today.msnbc.msn.com

Unbeknownst to pageant organizers, a volunteer misplaced the headdress

An apologetic volunteer, not a thief, was to blame for the disappearance of the $400 crown, which turned up late Friday afternoon at a Reno alteration shop, said pageant organizer Teresa Benitez-Thompson.

Unbeknownst to pageant organizers, the volunteer misplaced the crown in a small box that accompanied other boxes and hanging bags of clothes to the business Thursday.

“The volunteer is so embarrassed. She loves the pageant and couldn’t be any more apologetic,” she said. “We sincerely thought an unauthorized person had the crown. Our belief in mankind has been affirmed with its discovery.”

“I was so nervous we wouldn’t have a crown, and I didn’t get any sleep last night,” said Benitez-Thompson, Miss America pageant director for the state and Miss Nevada 2002. “But we have our crown and couldn’t be happier.”

Twelve women will vie for the title.

It’s so good too, to eat, think of all the different options you have, you have cheese, you have milk, you have yogurt, you have ice cream, all of these different dairy products and they’re so good for you,” said Stam.

Tattle: Miss New Jersey rises from the Ashleys

IF YOU WANT your daughter to be named Miss New Jersey, there’s one clear path to success: Name her some variation of Ashley.


Ashley Shaffer, 22, of Millstone Township, won the title Saturday night at the Ocean City Music Pier.


First runner-up was Ashleigh Udalovas, 21, of Millville.


Last year’s winner was Ashley Fairfield, of Egg Harbor.


Ashley S. will now compete in the Miss America Pageant, scheduled for Jan. 30 in Las Vegas, something so sacrilegious to Atlantic City that New Jersey shouldn’t even send a contestant in protest.


“I have no idea what’s going on right now,” she said, shaking. “I’m going to Miss America! I can’t believe it!”
