Why Are Expanded Background Checks for Potential Gun Owners a Bad Thing?

This has been a very difficult week in light of the bombs at the Boston Marathon, the explosion at the fertilizer plant in Waco, TX. and yesterday's defeat in the Senate of a bill that would have expanded background checks to purchase a gun and banned the sale of some semi-automatic weapons like military assault weapons. My question to the Senate is, what's wrong with expanded background checks?

Evansville Law Enforcement and the EVSC Announce Choose Not to Lose – A New Program to Help Kids Make Better Choices

As any parent is well aware, our kids sometimes do not make the best choices, especially at the high school level. Some of their decisions are made based on anything from bullying to peer pressure or just out of the need to fit in. A new program was launched on Monday to help kids make better, more positive choices as they move forward.

My Son Roars as Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant Makes Amazing Alley-Oop During Pacers vs Thunder NBA Game

On Friday, my kids traveled to Indy to watch the Indianapolis Pacers play the Oklahoma City Thunder. Being born and raised in Indiana, you would think that they were Pacers fans. But NO! They LOVE the OKC Thunder, especially Kevin Durant. So, when Russell Westbrook set Kevin Durant up for an EPIC alley-oop, my oldest son could not contain his excitement.:-)

New Hampshire Schools Ban Dodgeball to Curb Bullying

When you were in school, chances are dodgeball was as big a part of your life as it was in mine.

Does the Word Easter Mean Religion?

It is Good Friday and Leslie and I got into a spirited discussion with listeners this morning about a story out of Washington State with regard to using the word 'Easter' with eggs, candy and egg hunts. Officials in Edmonds, Wash. issued a directive that Easter egg hunts will be known only as egg hunts and the city's candy-fest needs to be more inclusive of other faiths.

The Easter Bunny Has Been Spotted in the Tri-State

On the show this morning, we had a lengthy discussion about Easter. It involved everything from Easter candy to a debate on whether to take the word 'Easter' out of egg hunts. Which, by the way, got VERY heated. I will address THAT over the weekend. :-) Any way, I mentioned that I had actually seen the Easter Bunny hopping around in downtown Evansville hiding his eggs. A listener has ALSO seen the furry little guy, but he wasn't hopping around. He even took a picture.

Two-Year-Old Lock Picking, Pillow Stealing Bandit Busted on Video

This is one of the funniest 'kid' videos I have ever seen. Anyone who has kids knows that kids want what they want when they want it. However, sometimes the little tykes have to be pretty creative to get what they want without being seen. When my daughter, Emily was a toddler, I could never figure out how, after nap-time, I would find her playing on the floor and NOT in her crib...it took some time, but I figured her little scheme.

What If Your Friends Acted Like Pets? Cat Friend vs Dog Friend Video is Hilarious

My son shared a video with me over the weekend. The video is a human spin on dog and cat behavior. If your friends were your pets, how would they act? Interesting and a VERY funny thought. But he also thought it was SO funny because the dog reminded him of his dogs, Oscar and Tony, and my cat Emmy. LMAO! TOO FUNNY! And TOO true!
