This morning on the WROK Morning Show, we were joined by our pal Mark Grote, who happens to be 1/3 of the best baseball broadcasting team on radio. Mark, along with the great Pat Hughes and former Cub & all-star Ron Coomer have brought you every single game this season on WROK--and they're ready for the playoffs. Are you?
It seems that the combination of food, drink, music, friends, and a cool & eclectic vibe is really working for the Rockford City Market, the weekly Friday get-together in Downtown Rockford that just finished its May through September run.
With the images of gun violence, panic, injury, and death at the forefront of everyone's mind yesterday, the Rockford City Council has approved the purchase of the ShotSpotter Flex, a gunfire detection and location analyzer system.
I've heard people make the argument that schools should be teaching students life skills like balancing a checkbook, paying bills, or creating/maintaining a savings program. I tend to agree, and seeing where our state ranks among "financially savvy" states justifies that feeling for me.
If plowing, shoveling, and scraping off your own property during a winter snowstorm is not enough for you, and you'd love nothing more than plow, shovel, and scrape your way through Northern Illinois this winter--get in touch with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). They're looking for help.
One of the good things to come out of all the horrific weather that Texas and Florida recently endured is the fact that thousands of lost and/or abandoned dogs and cats are being adopted into new homes around the country at a record rate. If you're looking to add a four-legged friend to your family, please consider a rescue animal. You'll be doing a world of good--and you'll avoid a potential scam.
