A Smile is Contagious No Matter What It’s On, Even on Mulch Man!

Each and every day I'm on the air, I always end my broadcast with a reminder for you to "keep wearing that smile because it's contagious, you know."  It's true!  One of my nicknames here at the station is "Smilin' Dave" because I smile a lot to spread a positive vibe to everyone I meet or see.  It's small but it's powerful.  So every day when I drive home and see this face smiling at me, it reminds me to continue doing what I'm doing.  (He may not be smiling, but I like to think he is!)

Sky Zone Trampoline Park Coming to Evansville

The trampoline in our back yard provides hours of bouncing fun for Emily and Elliot.  Elliot bounces simply to bounce around.  Emily does that too, but she also practices her cheers and tumbling.  We all realize that bouncing on a trampoline is lots of fun, but it’s also great exercise for the muscles and cardiovascular system.  And as great as it is to have one of these, it doesn’t compare to what’s coming for Evansville area residents – a Sky Zone Trampoline Park.

Severe Weather Season Window Has Just Opened for Evansville and Tri-State

It seems that living in the Evansville and Tri-State area means severe weather can strike at any time on any day of any month.  However, when the beginning of April rolls around, you know that the severe weather season window is opening with storms likely to follow.  Bada-bing, bada-boom, today is April 2 and the severe weather threat is rearing its ugly head, with severe weather as a possibility tomorrow.  That's why, as I was driving through Chandler, this contraption caught my eye.

Birds of a Feather Get Shot Together – if They’re Turkeys

It's just about wild turkey hunting time in the Tri-State, and just like the lyrics that are sung in "Chevy Van," by Sammy Johns, "...and that's all right with me!"  Sorry, but I don't like wild turkeys.  They are, in my mind, just like deer - a nuisance.  They wander around aimlessly with no real purpose, running onto rural roadways and causing automobile accidents.  They spread ticks and lice, too.  So, I say, let the hunting games begin!

Tons of Peanut Butter Get Dumped in Landfill

It turned into a sticky situation and I'm glad it didn't happen in Evansville.  About 25 tons of peanut butter that was okay for anyone to eat was purposefully dumped into a landfill in Clovis, New Mexico.  Why?  That's a little complicated.
