Where Were You?

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

13 Years Post 911

September 11, 2014

Deana and I began the morning show today with a moment of silence for the nearly 3,000 victims of the September 11th attacks. This number includes the 347 firefighters that were killed in the process of carrying out rescue efforts. More than 1100 victims in Manhattan still remain unidentified to this day. In my 16… 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

Hollywood Funny Lady Dies at 81

September 4, 2014

I just found out that Joan Rivers didn’t quite make it through her ordeal like we thought this morning. She seemed to have so much life for being 81 years old. I wasn’t a huge fan, I didn’t watch her show, I remember some of her hysterical one liners and her shock value comedy. I… read more

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

September 3, 2014

As I was score checking this morning at 6:20A.M.–prior to our sports report with Tom Fitzsimmons–I suddenly developed a hankering for a stadium hot dog, a cold beer and a Bay Area trip. I haven’t been to a single professional baseball game this year, and the last time I took my daughter was 2012. Hoping… read more

Texting Parents

September 3, 2014

One of my favorite things to do when I’m bored is to check out the sites where I find texting fails by parents. What’s even better are the funny ones because the parents are clever. Sometimes I think I’m awful mother for saying some of the things that I say to my kids- all in… read more

The Circus Is Coming!

September 2, 2014

This is a great week to pay particular attention to the seven o’clock hour on the morning buzz. Sue Legate joined Deana and I on the phone this morning to talk about Legacy Production’s upcoming string of “Barefoot In The Park” performances at the Nevada Theater beginning this weekend. We wrapped Tuesday’s show up by… read more

August 29, 2014

The Labor Day weekend is just about upon us, so remember to have a good time and use common sense. The coming three day weekend will bring with it the usual over indulgence of food, alcohol and other party favors. DUI check points will be set up throughout the county until midnight on Monday, so… read more

Labor Day on Star 94FM

August 28, 2014

I really had the feeling this morning was going to be the day we awarded our Galaxy Club winning key tag holder $183. Once again, the nine minute and thirty second window passed without a call. It would be great to reward a listener before the Labor Day weekend. Be listening tomorrow around 7:45A.M. for… read more

Community Involvement

August 26, 2014

This is the most caring community I’ve ever know. We hear about a child who is sick, someone inevitably puts together a fundraiser. We need to build a homeless shelter, the community pulls together to make it happen. We have literally thousands of non-profit groups between Grass Valley and Nevada City doing good for others…. read more

Back To The FM Tomorrow

August 26, 2014

For those who may have noticed (all three of you), I’ve been absent from the Morning Buzz for the past couple of days. This was due to the fact that I have been filling in for Tom Fitzsimmons, on our sister station, while he’s been away on vacation. Thanks to Eric Gould for getting down… read more

Students Invent NailPolish to Detect Date Rape Drug

August 25, 2014

I read an article today about some very smart boys at North Carolina State University who are working on a nail polish that will detect the date rape drug in drinks by discreetly dipping their finger in their drinks to test them. These boys are brilliant and were raised right! Check out the story with… read more

I Can Shower Again!

August 25, 2014

My weekend was interesting. It began Friday night with my daughter and I completing the Ice Bucket Challenge for A.L.S. Thanks again to Deana for that; it was actually quite refreshing. I just might start dumping a bucket of cold water over my head every Friday night, until Winter of course. Saturday, the drains in… read more

Ice Bucket Double Whammy!

August 22, 2014

I got tagged! The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Ice Bucket Challenge was issued to me last night by my morning show co-host (and former friend) Deana Martinez. Yesterday my 12-year-old daughter London was challenged by a classmate. So, at some point today before the 24 hour time period expires, the two of us will handle our… read more

I Was Called Out

August 21, 2014

I was scrolling through my facebook page last night and came across this young guy who was called out to do the ice bucket challenge. It turned out that he is all too familiar with the disease as his grandmother had died from it, his mother is currently struggling with it, and he, himself has… read more

Trying Out Healthier Living

August 20, 2014

So in the last 4 years, I have had my gallbladder removed, gone through a divorce, started smoking again (after quitting for 10 years) quit again and gained probably 40 lbs. in the process.  I feel like a slug, I have no energy at all- and really would like to get healthy again. I’m not… read more
