...check out the work of Amy Wiegsmoen (sp?) on the afternoon show with steve fowler. amy did great job for her first 2.5 hours of radio. amy's a homemaker from hammond and she knows a lot about local stuff so why not give her a shot? we look to hire the local region guy, er, gal. bill baker on vacation for a couple days.
...i played in american cancer society outing today at sand creek. councilman dan repay, bp's tom keilman, and the economic development guru matt reardon from seh. four-under, yikes. lost to sober high school kids again. sand creek's clubhouse and pool and grounds all top-notch for rich people types. castles all over the course.
...great job by nipsco's mark maasel on raising more than $50,000 to fight cancer.
...maasel - "we feel we had an excellent turnout and our corporate sponsors really came through. we sent out the smart cart so we could provide a little fun and a little education about cancer at the same time.
