New Beginnings Sexual Assault Support Services is a 24 hour crisis center to the seven-county GRADD area. They also provide free counseling for any survivor of sexual violence including child sexual abuse and free educational prevention programs for all ages.

New Beginnings is in search of volunteers. You could be the source of strength for a sexual assault victim in need. They are looking for help with a range of duties to assist both the victims and the organization. No experience is necessary, but they will provide all the training needed.

Chad And Jaclyn’s Ice Bucket Challenge [VIDEO]

We've all seen the videos by now... millions of people dumping buckets of ice water on their heads, participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge. I'm sure that some of you have too. ALS is a nasty disease. If you've never been affected by it, consider yourself lucky. My friend Amy's Dad passed away from ALS and she challenged Chad and myself to help spread awareness about ALS. Without blinking, I accepted for both of us naturally, ha!

So, without further ado... this one's for you Larry!

The Heath Bar and Marshmallow Blizzard from Dairy Queen [Video]

Miracle Treat Day is coming up TODAY at Dairy Queen!  And we are celebrating with this tasty blast from the past!  Last year, I was broadcasting live during Miracle Treat Day at the Dairy Queen on New Hartford Road in Owensboro, where we served up over 200 Blizzards in two hours!  It was CRAZY, but we managed to raise a good chunk of money for the Children's Miracle Network.  While I was there, I took some time to introduce the Dairy Queen staff to my favorite Blizzard flavor and combination.  And I talked a couple of the gals into showing you how it's made.  Ladies and Gents, I proudly present (in case you missed it in 2013) The Heath Bar and Marshmallow Blizzard from Dairy Queen!

Bowl For The Cure is coming up next Thursday and Friday and our WBKR team just got our t-shirts for the event. Naturally, we couldn't just let them sit there until our game next week, right?!? Ha! So... Fashion Show Friday quickly began!
