The reason I got into radio was to make a difference. I'm personally involved with many local organizations, as well as the hundreds we work with through the station. Here are just a few of the groups I spend more time helping:
University of Iowa Children's Hospital, CMN, and Dance Marathon
The ARC of East Central Iowa
Knights of Columbus
Marion Youth Baseball
I enjoy coaching baseball, playing tennis, kickboxing, listening to music, playing board games with my kids, riding rollercoasters and taking long walks on the beach.
My favorite teams that I follow:
· Minnesota Vikings Football
· Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
· Univ of North Dakota Fighting Sioux Hockey
· Linn Mar Lions
· Iowa Hawkeyes
· Minnesota Twins & Cincinnati Reds Baseball
The area golf courses are open and thousands of area golfers are hitting the links, some like myself hacking more than others. I probaly walk more than most other golfers since I play the CP (cart Path) of R to R (Rough to Rough) game, with my ball ending up more often on the other edge of the fairway or OB than right down the center. Occassionally I use a cart, but some of the courses require you to stay on the cart path, which means I have to walk even further and slow down the foresome behind me. Thanks to Bubba Watson, one of the new hot-shots on tour, they are developing a new hover-craft cart which will allow golfer to take the cart on the course and it will not damage the fairways or greens. And it can even go over water hazards , which will help many a golfer find their ball. Check out the video.Not sure how long it will be before a course around here gets one.
