Pro-gun billboard controversy

Tuesday, Apr, 30 2013

A pro-gun billboard in Colorado has some American Indians angered.

Here is a look at what's at the center of the story.

We don't know exactly who paid for it to be put up because they want it that way.

We do know some native Americans want it taken down.

More during the Tuesday PhilCast.

It's Monday and that means time for stories from the weekend. Among mine:

--A visit from the 'furnace guy' spells a tough decision on "Old Blue"

--A flat tire on a bike ride leads to the "Walk of Shame"

--A classic movie on a Saturday night

--Spring fever leads to my giant burning pile on Sunday.

Talk to you this afternoon...

T-Ball Shooting

Friday, Apr, 26 2013

Ah yes, the time-honored tradition of young boys and their dads bonding over some T-ball out on the old diamond.

Did I forget to mention the shooting?

You read right. Shooting.

One of the stories I'll be talking about on the Friday PhilCast involves a T-ball game and a couple of dads who get into an argument about the game. (Isn't that bad enough right there? Really? An argument over your kid's little league T-ball?)

I'm not sure what the kids were doing while these two idiots were setting a great example in front of them. But at some point one of the dads pulls out a gun and starts shooting.

As Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story on the PhilCast.

Supporting good kids in our community

Thursday, Apr, 25 2013

You hear so many stories about young people going down the wrong path in life. That's why I try to support organizations that help kids stay on the right path...organizations like the Makaroff Youth Ballet.

Here's the gang that was in-studio with me on the Wednesday show.

Left to right:
Mallory Garrison, Rebecca Fitton and the 'boss' Linda Drezdzon.

We talked about their upcoming spring concert event on the first weekend in May.

CLICK HERE for more info about that event and the organization.

I admire the kids' dedication and told them so during our interview. They work hard and we should support their efforts when we can.

Getting back in the game

Wednesday, Apr, 24 2013

This week I had the opportunity to be given a complete tour of the dazzling Orthopedic & Sports Institute of the Fox Valley.

The facility is even more impressive inside than its beautiful outside. OSI is one of our newest partners at WHBY, and it was with great interest that I did the walk-through, checking out everything from the rehab areas to the patient rooms and operating areas that look more like a boutique hotel than a medical facility.

My great interest of course comes from the fact that shortly after Thanksgiving in 2000 I underwent total hip replacement surgery after an old tennis injury had robbed me of my active lifestyle. Now, after over 27,000 miles on a bike, that hip and I are going strong! But like any part, sooner or later it will wear out and I'll need a little refresher. I think when that time comes I'll be here.

Today at 3:30-ish we will visit with OSI's CEO who will have more info about a seminar they are holding there on Thursday evening. Aches. Pains. Replacements? Joint injury? Rehab. Whatever it is....get your life back the way you want it to be again. I never had a regret about my hip replacement.

Heck, come out to the seminar just to get a tour of this very impressive place.
