Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
I love a good inspirational story. "On These Courts" by Wayne Drash is exactly that.
It's the story of how an NBA star and Memphis native came back to his old neighborhood and helped his childhood friend, changing the lives of kids in the process.
Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway is a beloved figure in Memphis. He was a rock star basketball player at the University of Memphis, and went on to have an NBA career.
Wayne B. Drash has written this amazing story, that, in my opinion, should be a movie.
Read an excerpt of the book here. See the website for it here.
But don't stop there. Go see Wayne and Penny tonight (Wednesday, May 8) at the University Center on the U of M campus tonight at 6:00.
Then read more of Wayne's fantastic writing. One of my favorite pieces is the one he did on a family affected by the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings. Read it here.
You can also hear my segment on Wayne Drash here:
Aria Ottmueller is flying blind. Literally.
She's a pole vaulter who's legally blind, and she has made the state championships in Arizona.
Get the story.
The story of the three women found in a Cleveland house after disappearing 10 years ago has everyone talking.
And one of the things they're talking about is Charles Ramsey. He's the guy who is being called a hero for freeing Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.
His interview with a reporter for WEWS is getting a lot of attention. See it here.
