  • Take That Pup to Work Today!

    I think having (well behaved) dogs at work with us would make all workers happy and more productive. Today is the day to try it out, It's Take Your Dog to Work Day... If not today, maybe ask the boss for next year! We have a couple of pups at home who are always up for an adventure, I am sure Happy (our smaller white Jack Russell mix from the LAPP shelter) would want the mic! Check out today's festivities..

  • Timing Was Perfect For The Prize Eliminator Winner

    All the Prize Eliminator contestants who eliminated a prize probably had something else on the list that they wanted to win. For Larry Carriker, that something else was $1,000 in groceries. Larry eliminated the Vegas trip from the final four remaining prizes, because he had just moved here from Nevada and in hopes the $1,000 in groceries would be the last remaining prize. Why? He did not say so at the time he eliminated Vegas, but is was partly because he was purchasing a new refrigerator/freezer he needed to stock. As fate would have it, the $1,000 in groceries was the last prize standing. Oddly enough, Larry's name was drawn as the winner! Larry is a happy and lucky man!

  • Could you Sell Your Video Game Collection for $100,000+?

    A gentlemen who's family needs the money, is selling his huge collection of video games. Very kind of him, I am sure he has sentimental attachment to them! Compare his collection to yours...http://www.gamegavel.com/item.cgi?show_item=958029

  • D-Day Was 70 years ago Today

    I can't imagine the feelings going through the minds our troops and their leaders 70 years ago today...the waiting, the hope that this effort would turn the tide, the strong possibility they would die. The invasion marked the beginning of the end for Hitler's army, as General Eisenhower called for "nothing except full victory". Germany surrendered less than a year later. Thank you to Bob Rogers my old friend from church, to Sam Seminoff, and Firrest Adams all Kansans who were there.

  • Led Zeppelin getting sued over "Stairway To Heaven"

    I have never been one to think Jimmy Page plagiarized the song but click the link, listen and make up your own mind.

  • Senator Dole Says Some Republicans Are Too Far to the Right

    Senator Dole said yesterday at WSU that he felt is was time he made some stops around the state and say "thank you". I think we all know that we should thank him. Senator Dole is clearly feeling the effects of aging, but his mind is still sharp as a razor at nearly 91 years of age. Among the things he said:

  • Great Job on DOC, Let's All Support!

    The wonderful aviation history of Wichita is, in large part ,the story of building superfortresses that defeated our foes and intimidated any potential foes. "Doc" is one of those. Congratulations to Tony Mazzolini, the Wichita Aero Club and all who have worked tirelessly to refurbish, "Doc" a B-29 Superfortress that languished in the California desert, having been used by the Navy for target practice. It should fly by the end of the year! See more about DOC, http://www.b-29doc.com/

  • What song is stuck in your head right now?

    It usually happens to me first thing in the morning, or sometime mid-afternoon. A song is stuck in my head for no particular reason. And it won't be the song I just heard on the radio or a song that was in the background of a t.v. commercial. Sometimes I will try and retrace my thought process and figure out where this song entered into my subconcious. This morning the song "Touch and Go" from The Cars was in my head. Why? Dunno....

  • Here Are the Top Five Businesses Fox Listeners Want Here

    The votes are in and here they are! Let's try and woo them to our hometown! We sure must love to eat, as 4 out of 5 are restaurant's!

  • Insane intersection!!!

    People are always complaining about drivers in Wichita, about how no one seems to pay attention to the rules and of the road. On a normal day things are bad enough right? How about when the traffic lights are out at an intersection?? Some drivers don't seem to know what to do if they don't have a traffic light to tell them what to do. Try putting those people in a car at this intersection!

  • My parents turned me on to Led Zeppelin

    Looking back on it, I can imagine my parents going into the local record store in the fall of 1969 and saying to the clerk: "We have two boys 11 and 12 years old and they love rock and roll music, what would you suggest?"

  • SO, The Year I Bet on The Derby Winner Was a Fluke?

    I could not have been less accurate in my Kentucky Derby predictions! I am thrilled though that the odds on favorite, California Chrome won. So nice to see your average Joes bring a winner to the Derby...especially when California'Chrome's mama was so overlooked. Love these self-proclaimed "Dumb Asses" who own "Chrome" and turned down 6-million for a 51% interest in him. They are guys you'd want to have a beer with. I also really hope California Chrome wins the triple crown. I see movie rights looming if he does. I hope he then lives out his life at stud! The Preakness is on May 17th and lots of people will be cheering for this little guy!

  • I think Wildcat Red Has A Chance

    So growing up, "Derby Day" was a big event at our house. All four of us in the family would pick a horse and if someone got it right, they had bragging rights for a year. This year I am going with Wildcat Red for obvious reasons...a horse with even the most remote tie to K-State should win! Uhh..right...well I am picking him as well as Danza, Candy Boy, Ride on Curlin and Wicked Strong. Surely one of my horses will win!

  • It's National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

    If you can afford a pet, please consider adopting today! Phil and I love LAPP, Lifeline Animal Placement and Protection. It is just a very basic shelter with out much in terms of ambiance, but it is place where pets are safe until the day they are adopted. Please make their wait for a forever home short. It makes room for another life to be saved. There is a good selection at LAPP most days. About every Saturday they are out with pets available for adoption. Look for them at Petsmart and Petco stores from noon to 3. Look for them on Facebook, LAPP!
