Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning since 2007. I grew up on ‘The Range’ and I’ve made the Twin Ports my home for over the last decade. It’s a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love to hunt, fish, and hang out in our great outdoors. I also love my job! It’s great to be able to connect with everybody in the Northland every morning and have a few laughs together. I’ve lived in many different parts of the Midwest, but nothing is as great as right here!

Security Cameras Should Be Installed To Deter Crime At Northland Playgrounds

It's just really sad that I've come to the conclusion that I can't let my 9 year old go to the park down the block alone anymore.  It's just not a safe place.  It's been vandalized several times, there are rumors of teenagers selling drugs, shady adults hang out smoking, and needles occasionally are found.  It makes me sick.

Could The Popular Acid Reducer Omeprazole Be Killing Me?

Well this just plain sucks.  I've been taking over the counter Omeprazole for about two years now to treat regularly occurring heartburn.  It was a miracle when I found it, because it's the only antacid that really did the trick for me.  Now this week, a study has come out saying that it increases my risk for an early death.  Usually I brush these "studies" off, but this was kind of alarming.

Cedarcide All Natural Bug Spray Review

The mosquitoes were pretty bad last weekend.  We were at the cabin in Northern Minnesota, so it's pretty much always bad.  Every trip up I pick up a can of family bug spray, usually with the less amount of DEET to apply to the kids.  I usually get a higher concentrated DEET bug spray for the adults.  We usually get quite a few bug bites anyway.   This time we tried something all natural to see how it would work.  It's called Cedarcide.

Igloo Sportsman Contour Cooler Review

We went to the cabin for the 4th of July for a long weekend, and it was clear I was going to need another smaller cooler for the trip.  At Menards, I found this Igloo Sportsman Contour Cooler, which appeared to be a good size.  It was on sale for $19.97, so I thought I would give it a try.
