I Had the Best Weekend!

September 29, 2014

Well, as anticipated, I had a really great weekend! My son and I went to the dinner/dance for the Auburn Airshow. It was a lot of fun and the food was fantastic. I learned that my son is very interested in becoming a pilot. The dinner/dance ended early and we ended up doing karaoke with… read more

Rain…Rain…DON’T… Go Away!!

September 25, 2014

As I looked out the studio window this morning between song sets, it was a welcomed sight to see water flowing down East Main Street for the first time in months. As you know, the state drought–coupled with a disastrous fire season–has left a number of our favorite recreational spots in bad condition. Fire crews… read more

A Breath Of Fresh Air…Please.

September 24, 2014

As I pulled into the KNCO parking lot Wednesday morning at 5:20, the smoke from the King Fire wasn’t as bad as Tuesday. Schools that had closed their doors were back in session. And then, at about 6:30A.M., the haze returned. The smell of burnt landscape fills the radio station lobby with every open and… read more

Smoky, Smoky

September 23, 2014

There is a ton of smoke in the air and it is terrible! I hope it goes away soon! They say that it’s coming from the King Fire and the good news is that it’s 35% contained as of this moment and I heard talk of rain for Thursday, so I’m praying that that happens… read more

Unhealthy Air This Weekend

September 19, 2014

Before I take off today, I wanted to remind everyone that health advisories are still in effect for Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Plumas and El Dorado counties. The King fire, which continues to burn east of Placerville, has sent smoke as far as southern Idaho. The fire remains just 10 percent contained and is approaching 80,000… read more

What is it with Boys?

September 19, 2014

My son recently completely transformed from a boy to a young man- and it seemed to have happened overnight. Or at least over the summer. I watched him play football last night and was amazed that he was the same kid from last year. He’s much taller, slimmer and seems to have more confidence. And… read more

Loving This Rain!

September 18, 2014

Fall is my favorite time of the year and this morning it feels like it’s coming and I am SO happy! Unfortunately it’s only going to stick around today, so I’ll enjoy it while I can. I would love to see it stick around for a little while longer and help out with the fire… read more

Time For A Rain Dance

September 17, 2014

We received both good, and bad, fire-related news this morning prior to going on the air on Star 94FM. Firefighters were able to get a stranglehold on the Dog Bar fire overnight, and were in mop up stages by 6A.M. this morning with 90 percent containment. The fire crews did a great job managing the… read more

More Smoke : No Relief Anytime Soon

September 16, 2014

As I pulled into the KNCO parking lot this morning at 5:20A.M., it was obvious that today was going to be best spent in doors. There are currently 11 fires burning throughout the state of California. From south of Los Angeles to the Oregon boarder, these blazes continue to be fueled by drought conditions and… read more

Smoke from two local fires burning within 70 miles of one another is blanketing Grass Valley and surrounding communities today. The more serious fire, which is being called the Pollock Pines fire, is now being aided by winds and continues to present challenges to area firefighters. Burning approximately 15 miles East of Placerville, the Pollock… read more

September 12, 2014

I remember where I was on that September day….. I was living in Hawaii on Schofield Barracks- the Army base on Oahu. My husband was in the Army and it was 5 AM when the second plane hit the tower. The phone rang and I stumbled for the phone, with my brother on the other… read more

Maroon V’s New Album V

September 10, 2014

I got it! And I am sooooo excited! Greg, knowing I’m a huge fan- got it for me. I have to admit, I was not a huge fan of Overexposed- there were a couple of good songs on it, but I was not a fan of the rest of it. It was too poppy and… read more

Summer Is Slipping Away

September 9, 2014

A clear cut indication Fall is approaching happened to me on Sunday when the propane tank for my barbeque spit out its final vapors and died five minutes into some cheeseburgers. Here we are, already into the final two weeks of Summer. I’m getting mixed feelings from co-workers and friends concerning the arrival of Autumn… read more

The NFL : Why Do I Torture Myself?

September 8, 2014

It was a strange week one in the NFL. Being a devout fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, I often wonder why I torture myself like I do. I can only thank my daughter and wife for putting up with me during eagles games. At halftime on Sunday, my eagles were losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars… read more
