By now you have probably heard the story of Karen Klein, the school bus monitor from New York...poor lady! (Check out her interview with The Today Show above for the latest!) What would you do if those were your kids bullying their school bus monitor? I would smack my son or daughter across their mouth if I ever caught them disrespecting someone like that! (Which is probably why I shouldn't have kids!) What do you think the appropriate punishment should be?
Let us know your opinion of Facebook!
Today I am feeling so sore from sand volleyball! I think my age or it could be my overall outta shapeness is catching up with me! However, I can't complain cause things got bloody last night! Check out my teammate/friend's battlewound from last night's game! OUCH! Her forehead had to be glued together in the ER! I avoided injury by being a klutz and tripping outta the way as my two teammates heads smashed into each other diving for a ball! YIKES!
Have you ever gotten any crazy injuries playing sports as an adult? Share your stories/pics on our Facebook page!!!
Did you catch Duets last night? Kelly Clarkson's team had a rough night to say the least! Both of her team members ended up in the bottom two and were forced to sing for their lives! In the end, the judges picked Jason Farol over Jordan Meredith... what'd you think? One things for sure, next week starts the live shows and who knows what will happen!
Also debuting last night, Life's A Tripp On Lifetime. Did you catch it? Turns out no one did! The new reality show that follows Bristol Palin's life in LA brought in less than a million viewers! (Good maybe they'll stop airing commercials for it during my Lifetime Sunday nights!)
Got an opinion? We'd love to hear it on Facebook!
This is my favorite time of year.. Summer Fest Season! Already, kicked it off last weekend with my first trip to the Corn Roast in Crown Point and the Portage Township Summerfest! This weekend is stacked with great events as well:
CROWN POINTS HOMETOWN FESTIVAL DAYS CONTINUES THIS WEEKEND
On Friday, the festivities fire up again with the newly combined three-day Taste of the Region and the 38th annual Arts and Crafts Festival around the Old Lake County Courthouse.

At 6 p.m. Friday, the Marriage Mill Celebration on the courthouse east steps pays homage to Crown Point’s unique position as the place to tie the knot from 1915 to 1940. With no blood tests or waiting periods required, celebs from Rudolph Valentino to Ronald Reagan were among those 175,000 couples who flocked to the city to say “I do."

Summer seems to be the buzzword around the studio today! How are you enjoying the crazy heat?!?!? I almost passed out in the heat during our sand volleyball game yesterday in Whiting Park! (Go Center Slammers! First Win Of Season!)
Anyway, got me thinking how great it is I work in A/C! Have you ever had those summer jobs that were just miserable? Yesterday, I went to eat at the restaurant I used to work at during highschool and college summers and couldn't think of a bad memory! I still enjoy going there to eat and catching up with some of my old co-workers! Maybe you have good experiences too?
Let's talk about your best/worst summer jobs on our Facebook Page!
