Ken Hayes

Hello, thanks for visiting my page! I've been here at B105 since 2007, and I've been a part of the Northland my whole life! I was born and raised on the Iron Range, and I've hopped around a few different parts of the country before returning to the Twin Ports where I call home. I love being close to the woods and the lakes where I can fish and hunt, and I think this is a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love doing the Breakfast Club each morning with my co-host Cathy, and I thank you for waking up with us!

Today is an important date for voting in Superior.  It's not just the Wisconsin Primary, but locally there is also a referendum vote for improving the Superior School District facilities.  Of course, it will be an increased property tax, and some people oppose more taxes on a year where as residents we have already had added garbage and recycling fees added from our city.  As with any voting decision, being informed is very important.  So, I urge you to read up on what the proposed referendum is about and make your decision from there.

The Walking Dead ‘Last Day On Earth’ Might Be The Last Episode I Watch

The season 6 finale of TWD left us on a cliffhanger, as was promised.  But I have a problem with the way they did it and the use of cliffhangers all season long.  In fact, when the credits rolled I, I rolled my eyes not believing that they've done it again.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Don’t Last As Long As They Should

Compact fluorescent light bulbs have replaced our old favorite incandescent bulbs.  They are suppose to save energy, last 5 to 8 times longer, and save money in the long run.   They cost more to purchase, but the thought is that if the bulb lasts longer and uses less energy, it will be worth it.   Well I've replaced far too many cfl's in a short period of time to make any of this true.
