A little about me, I was born in Duluth. My Grandpa Irv got me started in radio showing me reel to reel and I used to make shows with my sister for him to listen to. That's when the bug hit me. I wanted to talk on the radio. He used to play old broadcasts of Philadelphia Radio for me to listen to. I started in radio in 1996 doing overnights and eventually moved up to mornings. I enjoy music, both listening and writing it. My Favorite artists are Van Halen, Michael W. Smith, Def Leppard, Evanescense, Garth Brooks, Gary Allan, Sara Evans, Kellie Pickler, The Beatles.....ok, I could go on and on here, basically, I like good music no matter what it is. My favorite movies are, ‘The Crow’, ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Stealing Home’, and ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’. My favorite color is Black; my fav food is mac and cheese with turkey burger in it. I like anything paranormal, got a story? Send it to me.

Handicapped parking signs allow people who need it, a closer parking spot to a store or business.

Then I heard Wounded Warriors created a purple sign that you could put in place of your handicapped sign to allow a space for a Vet.

Superior Weightlifter Brandon Moe Is Going Back To State Competitions

Brandon Moe would be a dangerous man if they let him do everything he wanted to. Everything I've seen him do he takes head on and conquers it. He is a Black Belt, he is a many time Gold Medalist at the State Olympic competitions for weight lifting. I haven't known Brandon to ever fail at anything. That is because he is willing to try, and teaches me lessons every day I know him.
