April Fool's Day is an informal day filled with jokes and pranks played on people. Over the last several years Y101 has pulled a couple of pranks that are quite memorable, but one of the best pranks ever was conducted by the British Broadcasting Company (BBC).
Ozzie Smith started campaigning for it weeks ago but I said it a year ago…opening day in baseball should be a national holiday in America. The 2014 season begins this weekend (with the exception of the two games already played between the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks last weekend in Australia) and thousands of Americans and Canadians will be heading through the turnstiles into ballparks.
With the advent of the 2014 baseball season upon us, the Batting Cage bug has hit me. The bug to go to the batting cage and smash some baseballs around is attacking me like I would a fastball. The bad news is that the Quincy Park District’s Batting Cage is closed. The good news is that it will open for the season on Friday, April 11 at 3:30pm. The countdown is on.
A year ago I wrote a scathing blog criticizing the government for cancelling all of the Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels performances in 2013. Well, after a year off due to government cutbacks, the Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels are resuming their high flying acrobatic shows all over the United States this year.
Advocacy Network for Children is teaming with the Adams County State’s Attorney Victim/Witness Program to honor April as Child Abuse Awareness & Prevention Month and National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
The Sister City Commission announced at their monthly meeting that they will host the Germanfest on Saturday, May 31 in South Park. According to Mecki Kosin, the festival will come back in its original form, with food, drink and music.
Former Quincy University Hawks basketball coach Steve Hawkins will be on the sidelines today guiding his Western Michigan Broncos against the highly touted Syracuse University Orangemen in the second round of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. The game can be seen this afternoon locally on KHQA-TV with a 2:45pm scheduled start time.
Today marks the first day of spring or the day that the Vernal Equinox occurs. After the long winter we just endured, it couldn't come soon enough. The word Vernal means “occurring in spring” and the word Equinox means “equal night”.
What's happening next to the Coach House Restaurant at 24th and Broadway in Quincy? If you have driven in the alley behind the Y101 Radio Studios between Broadway and Spring Streets you probably have noticed the demolition of a building just east of the Coach House.
Mother Nature wasn't nice this morning for the Kelly's Fun Run/Walk for the Quincy YWCA as snowy and windy conditions prevailed. Despite those elements, a great turnout made the trek through the streets of Quincy Sunday morning. Once Kevin Reed fired off the cannon hundreds of runners and walkers took off.
