We welcomed our good friend Jimmy Lefler on the WIKY Morning Show today to chat about the second annual 100 Men Who Cook event August 25 at the Centre. It's brought to you by Old National Bank and this year the proceeds benefit Gilda's Club of Evansville. What's 100 Men Who Cook? Just what you'd think: 100 business and civic leaders get together and each cooks a dish and spends a lot of time and effort presenting it in a spectacular fashion. Diane's husband Jeff Thompson, WIKY's own Mark Elliott and me are among the 100 men. Your ticket price gets you into
We talked about Ruth's House Ice Tea Stand today on the show and I wanted to give you all the details. Get the info here, then you can go out and grab a special Ruth's House brew of Ice Tea!
Mark Elliott – program director of WIKY Radio here. Yesterday, a listener (Angie Walker Leslie) posted on the WIKY Facebook page about a news story. I won’t recap the story here, as it was tragic and very personal for Ms. Leslie. (Click here for a link to the story in the Local News section of this site.) However, in that post there were some claims about the news story that were not true. We debated removing the post but thought it best to reply in the comments, which we did.
There are plenty of people upset about the local fireworks bans this year due to the weather conditions. It’s perfectly understandable, too. Some folks just can’t celebrate Independence Day properly without cutting loose a few bottle rockets or Roman candles. But for me, it’s been a lifetime ban on fireworks so I’m not so upset. My cousin Mike, a number of years my senior, threw a firecracker into a ditch when he was a kid, a rock flew out and yes, he actually PUT HIS EYE OUT! He’s had a glass eye ever since.
