Little Alan Madden to Be Remembered This Sunday Night

It was the morning of January 11, 1981 and 5-year-old Alan Madden awakened to what unfortunately would be the final day of his life. What happened to this little defenseless boy goes beyond description.

Could Sledding Down South Park Hill Come To an End?

It looks like another one of my favorite pastimes of my youth may be disappearing in this country. I was watching the news on FOX-TV during lunch today at a local restaurant when they featured a story about some 9 states that have some sort of ordinance prohibiting sleigh riding down hills in public places. Illinois and Iowa were two of the nine states listed. This is apparently based upon the cities being liable for any injuries during the sledding activity.

You Won’t Believe How Many Porta Potties Were in Times Square!

As I watched the ball come down at Times Square in New York City I couldn't help but think about a few questions regarding what is available to the million plus people who were gathered there on New Year’s Eve. So I did a little research on the celebration in New York City. The main question that came to my mind, after looking at the throng of people gathered there, was how many porta potties did they have to set up?

It’s the End of 2014, Where Did the Year Go?

Happy New Year! Where did the year go? I cannot believe we are celebrating a new year arriving already. Wasn't it just March and the St. Patrick's Parade? Wasn't it just Gus Macker time in May? Wasn't it just July with fireworks going off at the Quincy Gems game? Wasn't it just the last Blues in the District time in September? Wasn't it just Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas? Where does time go?

Guess What ‘Auld Lang Syne’ Means

At midnight (EST) tonight when the ball drops in Time Square in New York, millions around the world will sing Auld Lang Syne.  I have heard the song countless times and had no idea what those three words even meant. They actually mean "old long ago".

Thank You for Making ‘Load the Lobby’ a Huge Success

No child should ever awake on Christmas morning without a gift. With that in mind, I came up with an idea 6 years ago called "Load the Lobby". Basically, it was an empty floor in our station lobby that needed to be filled with toys for the less fortunate kids in the area. I had no idea how many toys we would collect that first year but even if we collected 10 toys it was worth it.
