  • Why Are Nibs So Hard to Find?

    I have been looking for cherry NIBS for my husband for part of his Valentine's Day gift. You can find Twizzler's cherry, even bit sized Twizzler's in cherry, everywhere but NIBS are available only at a few truck stops....I don't mind travelling to a truck stop if someone knows of a specfic one that carries Cherry NIBS. Please let me know at

  • Katherine Webb Is Now a "Star"?

    AJ McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb was unknown until she was seen on National TV cheering on her boyfriend . Now ABC wants to feature her in a "Celebrity Diving" reality show along with stars like Ndamukong Suh, Keisha Knight-Pulliam. Show premieres March 19th. Will you watch?

  • So Now I Am Going With The 49ers

    It's been difficult attaching myself to team in the big game, as I was a fan of Denver and KC was in no way a possibility for post-season play, and then of Atlanta for the sake of Tony I am going for SF, frankly because I think they will win and it is time a West coast team won. Any comments?

  • I So Want Tony Gonzalez to Win

    See it's not about the Atlanta Falcons for me...its about Tony Gonzalez. Usually the Big game is no big deal for me, because the teams I have any allegiance to are never in the Championship game. However, I think a great deal of Tony I am cheering for Atlanta...if you have your windows open you just might hear me!

  • Was T'eo Embarrassed to Admit He was Duped?

    Manti T'eo says he thought he was having a significant relationship with a woman on line for years, but never met her. Then he says he believed she died on the same day as his grandmother. Seems like he was very trusting and able to "smell a rat". Maybe he was indeed a victim in this and did figure it out, but by then he felt he was in too deep to pull the plug on the story. I feel for him if that is the case. It appears he was forced to come clean when a journalist noted he could find no obituary for the girlfriend. It will be interesting to see what comes out when the person who apparently created the twitter account for the non-existent girlfriend makes a statement today. I suspect I will have harsh feelings for that person. What a manipulator! Phil and I will have more on this!

  • Do You Ever Wonder, What If?

    There was a time when I was fearless, never doubting that my choices were the right ones. Now, as I reflect on some past decisions I wonder about the "road not taken". Does anyone else do this? Let me know at

  • Even a Duchess Can't Always Get What she wants

  • Cleanthony Don't Leave Us

    Okay, maybe it's selfish, but I would hate to think of Cleanthony Early taking off for the NBA and not being back at WSU next year. Sure he could complete his education later, sure he risks a career-ending injury if he continues college ball, but watching him last night on TV in the round house was pure joy! Thanks, Cleanthony!

  • So, What is the Big Problem with making Barrier's a Restaurant?

    City Council has told residents in the vicinity of Douglas and Oliver that they will not prevent the old Barrier's Jewelry building from becoming a restaurant. Residents were concerned about traffic, noise, trash, etc. It seems those would already be something of a problem in that already commercial area. Can't imagine a restaurant would make it that much worse. Your thoughts? email me at

  • Does is Make You Mad when you still see Christmas Trees up on Jan. 12th?

    Sooo, my friend from New Jersey is coming to visit this weekend. She has a small house and rarely puts up a tree for Christmas. I want to have a belated Christmas celebration with her and I have a present for her that I think she will love! Do I dare leave up the tree in our living room through Sunday? To make matters worse, there are outside decorations on the porch that correlate with the tree in the window. Will I become one of "those" neighbors if I wait until next Monday to take it all down? Let me know at! Thanks!

  • I am hoping the Big Game features the Packers and the Broncos

    I think Peyton has been just absolutely marvelous in Denver and I admire Aaron why not have it a Green Bay/Denver game?

  • He Had to Have Felt the Pressure..

    I know Collin Klein is pretty unflappable, but when 25,000 K-State fans showed up at a stadium Pep Rally yesterday, he must have been thinking, "Wow, I'd hate to let these people down". Klein is a leader and leaders surely feel the heat...even if they don't show it. Good luck Cats! Let's increase our bowl record to 7-9.

  • RIP World's fastest Gunslinger

    As a "shootist" myself, I really find this guy amazing. Bob Munden passed away last month. Here he is in his prime.~ Jan

  • The Mayan Calendar Cake Apparently Worked

    Big Thanks to Carolyn Myers of Leon for creating a masterful Mayan Calendar cake and to her son, Dale for being a great friend to the Fox in encouraging his mom to make the cake. Dale supplied her with the picture of the calendar! We all ate the cake and apparently thwarted the coming of the end of the world today...Whew! the Fox listeners and staff are exhausted by this effort. Phil and I will be taking a week off...hope to have you back with us on the second. Meanwhile, let's all be nice to each other. Hope your holidays are happy!~ Jan

  • Cars4Christmas

    Big thank you to everyone who participated in Cars4Christmas! We were able to provide 5 people with reliable transporation thanks to folks who were willing to donate their gently used cars. They will all get a tax break and the recipients will all get a boost in life. The family of a young woman, Jessica, who donated a car were at the event this morning at Collision Specialists Car Star. They reported they had done their research and Cars4Christmas/Cars4Heros was the best choice among charities taking cars! The car they donated went to a woman who does peer support for the mentally ill. The donating family was thrilled, the recepient was thrilled and we were just happy to be a part of it. If we get more cars...the Cars4Christmas organization will award more cars in the coming months...not just at Christmas.

  • These Injuries are Killing Me

    So the Shocker men are playing their hearts out..and their hands out too! Carl Hall, our leading scorer, has a finger injury that will require surgery...he's out for at least a month. Evan Wessel has a hand injury that may require surgery...Eheime Orupke is barely back from an injury...lucky we're pretty deep Go Chadrack and Jake and DO NOT damage your hands!

  • One Spark Can Start A Fire

    Turns out the man with the truck covered in Christmas lights has a philanthropy called One Spark. He calls the lights on his vehicle "The Lights of Love and Kindness". He hands out packets of cards that encourage people to do an act of kindness and then hand them one of the cards that tells the person who received your act of kindness to do the same for someone else. Check out his website: Merry Christmas~Jan

  • "Christmas Light" Truck Update

    We talked with attorney Chris Pate from Case, Moses, Zimmerman and Martin yesterday about the truck with all the Christmas lights. He looked up the ordinance for which the owner of the truck with all the Christmas lights was cited. Mr. Pate says, if he changed the lights to clear he probably would not be in violation. The idea is to prevent his vehicle from being mistaken for a police vehicle. I get not sticking a light bar or a strobe light on your car, but if someone mistakes this for a police vehicle better check him/her for DUI.

  • Really, A Ticket for Christmas lights?

    So, if you put non-blinking Christmas lights all over your vehicle at Christmas, and I do mean all over your vehicle, is anyone really going to mistake your truck for a cop car? Apparently so, according to the officer who wrote local Philanthropist, Dave Hill a tickets this past weekend. We will see what the lawyers from Case, Moses, ZImmerman and Martin have to say about it. Seems pretty harsh to me. People don't pull over for the real thing. I doubt they'd be inconvenienced by pulling over for this guy!

  • How Many Hours does it take?

    Each year I vow to get all my Christmas decorating, inside and out, done in one day. It never happens. I am on about the 9th hour of decorating...spread over several days... and I imagine I have about 4 more to do..not including any party giving stuff....Anybody get theirs done really quickly? Any good secrets gals or guys on getting the lights or the tree up and down? Email me at jharrison@1045thefox.
