The 2015 edition of the St. Louis Cardinals Caravan took place at the Mabee Sports Complex at Hannibal-LaGrange University on Monday. Cardinals players Pete Kozma, Dean Anna, Stephen Piscotty, Nick Greenwood, and former player Al Hrabosky were in attendance, along with broadcaster Chris Hrabe.
We're coming up on Polar Plunge season, when lunatics brave citizens will raise money for Special Olympics by jumping in -- sometimes taking a swim in -- a frozen lake. These events are always successful, and participants and teams look forward to plunging each year. If the thought of jumping in a lake that had to be ice picked moments before sounds just a little odd to you, wait until you hear what Quincy Police Chief Rob Copley is planning to do...for the second year in a row!
We got to know Jared Keim a couple years ago, after his American Idol experience, but before he joined the group Restless Road. Jared performed at our first ever Out on the Town at the Town & Country Inn and Suites in Quincy and did a great job. It's been a lot of fun for us to watch his career progress. Last summer, he became the newest member of Restless Road, a pop/country trio that became well-known from competing on 'The X-Factor.' They opened for Demi Lovato in October, and this morning they appeared on 'Emotional Mojo' on WeTV. The interview is now online for those that might have missed it.
In 2013 I finally made my first visit to the "new" Busch Stadium...which opened in 2006. Better late than never? I had a great time, and it looks like I'm not the only one that enjoyed the ballpark. Stadium Journey Magazine, which covers stadiums and venues for pretty much every single sport imaginable, has published its list of best stadium experiences, and in the Top 3 for Major League Baseball is Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
I recently wrote a story about former Quincy Mall stores. I had no idea that within a few weeks, we'd be adding a huge name to that list. Both WGEM and KHQA are reporting that the J.C. Penney store inside Quincy Mall will close on April 4.
During the pro football season, we asked listeners to participate in the $10,000 Pro Football Pick ‘em Challenge. At the end of the season, Janet Nichols ended up being the contestant in the Quincy/Hannibal area that had the best overall record. Janet now has a chance to win $1000, or even $10,000!
