The Cheese Dip!

Thursday, Sep, 26 2013

Sorry--but it's one of the new names for the sagging of the Leo Frigo bridge in Green Bay!

What a cruddy break for Green Bay area commuters for the next weeks or months. Already strapped with considerable construction on 41, now you get whacked with no access over the river on 43.  That will just further clog 172 and every West/East city street that has a bridge over the Fox.

I have to admit that I've never enjoyed driving over that bridge, especially when it's stormy or windy!  It can sway more than Foster Brooks on the Dean Martin roast!!!

Big floods

Monday, Sep, 16 2013

We've had our issues with Mother Nature this summer, now it's sadly a tragic week in and around Denver, Colorado.  I was in the area for a family reunion this past weekend, and saw it in person.

Massive flooding from steady downpours quickly raised rivers to levels they haven't seen in decades, or even ever. Numerous dead, thousands of structures destroyed, hundreds still missing or cut off from the rest of the world due to communications out and roads gone.  One reporter overstated the devastation a bit by saying it was "biblical", but one could understand her comments once you witnessed it up close.

Good time to count our blessings.

Hey--two quick contests to keep an eye out for:

1.  Sign up and play the WHBY Football Pickem contest, where you can pick the Pro games every week and maybe win fabulous prizes--and compete against me, too!  It's up at whby.com right now...

And,

2. I will be starting a quick on-air contest on WHBY soon, where you could win a free round of golf for you and your spouse(or a friend) to Fox Valley Golf Club in Kaukauna!  Includes golf, cart for two and the Friday fish fry at the Fox for two as well!  And, you will be joining me and my wife Shelly for the golf and dinner!  I know, there's always a hitch, right?!!!  Keep listening for details.
