Knottsville Boy Sells T-Shirts for St. Jude

Gavin Howard has become a staple of the annual WBKR/Poole's Pharmacy Care St. Jude Radiothon.  His involvement started a couple of years ago when Jaclyn and I got a call during the event and were told that Gavin wanted to stop the studio and donate all of his birthday money to the kids of St. Jude.  Well, that tradition continues and last year Gavin donated over $300!  And this year, the Knottsville youngster plans to donate even more money because he is selling t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies!

“Lone Survivor” Movie Trailer [VIDEO]

Chad and I had the honor of hearing Marcus Luttrell speak during one of our trips to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. No, Marcus isn't a child with cancer, nor does he have one. Marcus, a US Navy SEAL, is the only survivor of Operation Red Wing. Neither of us will ever forget being on the edge of our seats, listening to him tell the horrifying story of that day and the days following.

Lone Survivor is an upcoming movie about Operation Red Wing. I encourage you to watch this trailer and to learn more about Marcus. He is a true American hero and I will always be grateful for Marcus and other men and women of our great military who protect us by sacrificing themselves.

Lightning Storm Hits Tri-State [Photos]

Remember the old disco song "Knock On Wood?"  Well, it was like "thunder and lightning" last night in parts of the tri-state as random severe thunderstorms blew in.  They brought with them some very impressive lightning and some of my Facebook friends were outside with their phones and cameras aimed at the sky to capture some "electric" moments.  And some of them did.  Check this out!
