WIKY Morning Show Re-Cap June 28th

WIKY Morning Show June 28, 2011

**We heard from a number of listeners who had this happen either to them or a family member – while using their debit card at a gas pump, instead of the traditional $1 hold, some stations are now putting a $ 75, $100, or we’ve heard, up to a $200 hold on your card causing all kinds of problems when trying to use the card later.  But there’s a simple way to beat it – if you have any concerns about too big a hold on your debit, either use the credit option or pump and pay inside, the cardholder will only be charged for the amount purchased.

** It's High School and College Reunion season again, and we explored 1 Minute Inside a Woman's Head to see just how she feels about it! Listen to the audio clip here:

**No matter how picky you think you are when it comes to dating, you can't possibly compare to this guy.  Gilbert Herrick of Rochester, New York has spent his entire life searching for the right woman to lock him down, and he's finally discovered her at AGE 99. 

 Gilbert lives in a nursing home, where he spotted some hand-painted china and asked who made it.  The staff introduced him to the artist, an 86-year-old resident named Virginia Hartman.  They started talking.  And after almost ten decades, Virginia was finally the one who tamed Gilbert. 

 Of course, he still resisted getting married . . . he just wanted to shack up with Virginia.  But when they asked the nursing home if they could share a room, they were told only married couples can do that. 

 Virginia ended up proposing to Gilbert . . . that's right . . . and he accepted.  While Gilbert has never been married, this is Virginia's second time.  Her previous husband died 25 years ago. 

 They were married earlier this month in front of family, friends, and the staff. 

 Here’s a snapshot of the happy couple –

**Some food for thought - yesterday, a story made international news when TSA agents had a 95-year-old woman remove her adult diaper so they could examine it and clear it through security.  The most common response was:  They've hit a new low. 

 And we're not saying it's right to make elderly women remove their Depends.  But, for what it's worth, adult diapers really should NOT get a free pass through security.  Just last month, in New York, a woman arrived at JFK International Airport.  Customs agents found her acting suspicious and searched her.  She was wearing an adult diaper.  This woman's age wasn't released. 

 When they examined the adult diaper, they found it loaded with herion she was trying to smuggle.  So, when the TSA screeners in Florida felt the adult diaper on the 95-year-old woman, there wasn't a GUARANTEE it was going to be clear.  And while 95-year-old women don't fit the terrorist profile . . . what if they hadn't searched her and the worst had happened? 

 **The Los Angeles Dodgers have filed for bankruptcy.  But it doesn’t look like Don Mattingly will be renting a U-Haul anytime soon for a trip back to Evansville.  Read more here –

** Newsweek magazine has lit a firestorm of controversy over their current cover story about what would-have- been the late Princess Diana's 50th Birthday.  The cover is a photoshopped "computer aged" Diana alongside Kate Middleton and is causing quite the negative reaction.  The cover is below, along with a link to Newsweek Editor Tina Brown's story on what Diana's life would like today if she hadn't died in 1997.

**"Men's Health” magazine just ranked the 100 laziest cities in the U.S. by . . . and Lexington, Kentucky was named THE laziest city in the country.

The rankings are based on exercise rates, the percentage of households that watch more than 15 hours of TV a week and buy more than 11 video games a year, and the death rates from sitting-related diseases like deep-vein thrombosis. 

 Lexington finished in last place at 100.  It's just lazier than Indianapolis in 99th place . . . Other cities around here making the list – Nashville 93, Ft. Wayne 85, Louisville 81, and St. Louis 63.  

 On the other end of the list, Seattle was named the least lazy city in the U.S.  It just beat out San Francisco . . . Oakland . . . Washington, D.C. . . . and Salt Lake City.
