If the Junk Food Tax Kicks In, They’re Comin’ Here First

If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times: "Make healthier food cheaper, and this country will start to lose weight." You know what I'm talking about, don't you? The least expensive food at the supermarket, the food toward which a majority of Americans are gravitating in this less-than-ideal economy, is also the least healthy food on the shelves. It's a dual-edged sword.

WBKR Studios Quickly Becoming Wildlife Refuge [VIDEO]

Do you remember Marlin Perkins? He was the host of that great old wildlife program Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. Back in the day, he was "animal planet" before "Animal Planet" was cool. Long before. Well, here lately I've begun to think ol' Marlin's ghost haunts the WBKR studios. And that's thanks in large part to the increasing number of creatures that are populating our grounds. The latest addition? How about a bat living under our carport?

WBKR Goes Bowling For The Cure This Week!

Owensboro's Bowl for the Cure is this Thursday and Friday and you what that means!  Dave Spencer, Jaclyn Graves, Steve Horn and I are going to be lacing up our bowling shoes and hitting Diamond Lanes South.  Owensboro's version of Bowl For The Cure has been expanding over the past couple of years and this year's edition is no different!  There are sessions at 5:30pm and 7:30pm on Thursday and Friday and they are FULL!  In fact, WBKR has THREE teams this year and we are all very excited to lace up our shoes and roll some strikes (well, hypothetically speaking!)

Black Widow Maintains WBKR’s Other “Web” Site [VIDEO]

Last night, I returned to the WBKR studios to retrieve a power strip that I had used at a live broadcast location. As I approached the back door, I looked down and noticed this little guy, well, gal dangling from a web constructed between the lower part of the door and the outside wall. Upon further inspection, I noticed the chilling and tell-tale red hourglass mark on its belly.

Fight Cancer And ROCK IT WITH RYLAN!

February is one my favorite times of the year here at WBKR.  That's when we get to rally your support to help raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.  For 26 hours over two days, we ask the tri-state to join us in the fight against childhood cancer.  We introduce you various families who have had to hear those words, "Your child has cancer."  Well, I'm quite sad to report that, last month, Jared Daugherty, a former member of the WBKR family, had to hear those words, "Your child has cancer."

As Cities Expand, Wildlife Proliferates

You can sure tell when a city's limits are expanding. And, no, I'm not talking about the obvious signs like the actual retail and dining establishments cropping up at a breakneck pace. No I'm talking about...roadkill. Yep, it's a pretty grim indicator, but an indicator nonetheless, as far as I'm concerned. In fact, I'm seeing more and more wildlife within the city and county limits than I have ever seen before--the WBKR parking lot included.
