Best Buy Promises To Release Findings Of Inquiry Into Former CEO

I mentioned on my show today that former Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn resigned under suspicious circumstances.  There was talk that Dunn, who is married, was having a relationship with a 29-year-old woman who worked for the company.  However, as this article points out, there has to be more to this story because of the legal experts the company has hired to investigate his behavior.

Neighborhood Volunteer Charged With Murder In Trayvon Martin Case

George Zimmerman is behind bars for the death of Trayvon Martin and he may very well be there for the rest of his life if he is indeed found guilty of this crime.  This is such a high profile case, I can't imagine a location where jurors won't have awareness and  opinions going in.  I have a feeling this will be going on for some time.  At the very least I think it will be good for that community to hear all the evidence.

How closely have you followed this case?  Enough to have an opinion you'd care to share on the guilt of George Zimmerman?

Tax Deadline Day Can Be Deadly On US Roads

This is your last full week to get those taxes done.  I'd get them done now and then maybe stay off the road!  Since April 15th falls on a Sunday, you do get a little extra time as taxes need to be postmarked by midnight at April 16th.  It's a very stressful time for many who wait until the last minute for various reasons.  This stress leads to a hurried run to the post office that, as it turns out, leads to an increase in road fatalities at tax time.  Well, this report should make the stress of filing taxes even better!  Don't panic, if you aren't done yet you have time.

Veteran Newsman Mike Wallace Dead At 93

The show '60 Minutes' was always iconic for me growing up.  I spent weekends with my dad and Saturdays were always full of things like going to movies, hitting the baseball around, shooting hoops, or just wandering around the woods and gardens at my Grandpas house.  Sunday meant watching football with my dad and his famous hamburgers, that he made week after week in the same black skillet which I don't believe was ever washed.  Whenever I heard the opening to '60 Minutes' it wasn't great for news to me.  It meant the weekend fun was over, dad would bring me home soon as school awaited on Monday.

NFL Shows Off New Line Of Uniforms By Nike

When the new NFL season begins, teams will all have new uniforms as Nike has taken over production.  As you will read, the Seattle Seahawks used this opportunity change the overall look to their uniforms.  However, for most teams the changes not very noticeable.  The Vikings and Packers will look much as they did last year, although the fit and feel to the players is said to be improved.  I'm sure the teams are looking forward to fans wanting to own the new jerseys however.

Ticks Season Is Coming: They’ll Bug You This Spring

The weather hasn't been great lately, but it was enjoyable to have a record setting March across the Northland.  The good news was the warmth and sunshine.  The bad news was an early allergy season and now, an early tick season.

We are well trained in the area to be aware of ticks and the health risks they can cause if not found in a timely manner.  My mother suffered from Lyme Disease and

I remember when I was a kid in junior high and I thought Madonna was so hot (her and Susanna Hoffs from 'The Bangles').  She was provocative dressing in black fishnet outfits with lots of wristbands and big sunglasses.  Looking back and comparing her with what stars wear today, she looks Amish.

Coroner Says Whitney Houston Died From Drowning, But Cocaine And Heart Disease Contributed

Whitney always said she was her own worst enemy.  Sad that it could've been prevented had she been able to take control of her vices.  You'd hope it would send a message to young stars who are on this path, but history has proven otherwise.

 
Whitney Houston died from drowning in a hotel bathtub, but coroner's officials said Thursday that heart disease and chronic cocaine use were contributing factors to the singer's death.

Sean Payton Of New Orleans Saints Banned One Year For Bounties

Sean Payton's ban was only the beginning of the punishment.  I expected severe penalties for The New Orleans Saints for paying bounties to hurt players, but this is even more severe than I imagined.  That said, I think they fully deserve it all, especially since they first tried to cover it up before admitting what was going on.  What do you think of the punishment?

 
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton was suspended without pay for the 2012 season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was banned indefinitely on Wednesday because the team's players were paid bounties for big hits on opponents from 2009-11.
