WIKY Morning Show Nov. 7th

** It was a special Election Extortion Breakfast on the show this morning, as we welcomed Republican candidate Lloyd Winnecke and Democratic candidate Rick Davis to cook for some free last-minute air-time before tomorrow's election.

Lloyd brought in a breafast casserole loaded with pork products, plus the "Lloyd Winnecke - Donut Bank Breakfast Cake."

Rick brought in his mother-in-law's famous coffee cake, homemade by her.  Rick insists she's one heck of a baker!

Both dishes were big hits throughout the building and we had a blast with both Lloyd and Rick and we thank them for both being such good sports to come in and have some fun with us.  Of course, the visit wouldn't be complete without the photo op at the end.  Polls are open tomorrow from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.  DJB and I urge you to get out and cast your vote tomorrow!  If you're not sure where polling places are located, the info is on the front page of our website.

 

** Daylight Savings Time Ended over the weekend.....did you remember to set your clocks back?  Apparently, some people have a bit of a problem with remembering which direction to go!

Back when we were little kids learning about Daylight Saving Time, most of us got the "spring forward, fall back" thing down pretty easily: Set the clock forward in the spring, back in the fall.

So I feel bad for these people who clearly DIDN'T learn that . . . or spaced out when it was time to use it.

According to a new survey, 11% of people changed their clocks the wrong direction yesterday. They were supposed to "fall back" and set the clock BACKWARDS an hour. Instead, they set it forward an hour.

The survey also found that 27% of people have been either early or late for an appointment at some point in their life because of the time change.


** As of this morning, there still was no verdict in the Conrad Murray trial.
