ANOTHER PACKED MARQUETTE COUNTY WEEK IN THE BOOKS!

Whew!  What a week!  From politics to medical marijuana, Boy Scout celebrations to brain tumor and cancer benefits, ham radios to Northern Michigan University updates, school bond and millage elections to YMCA visits, it was all in there!  Wow!  We do more in one week on Mark and Walt in the Morning than many other “community oriented” morning shows do all month!  HA!  We love it!

But enough of this self-serving clap trap, here a few more Marquette County community interviews and updates for your perusal and consideration.

ENJOY!


ISHPEMING SCHOOL DISTRICT REGROUPS AFTER ELECTION RESULTS.

ROBERT BERTUCCI.

Following a defeat of a school bond proposal that would have allowed the Ishpeming Public Schools to re-do and expand the Birchview School building and get out of the C.L. Phelps building, we spoke with the Ishpeming Schools’ business manager Robert Bertucci to find out what is next for the school district to do to adjust their budgets and address a 400-thousand dollar shortfall for next year.  To listen to the complete interview with Robert Bertucci, please click “HERE“.

UPPER PENINSULA BRAIN TUMOR CENTER UPDATE.

DR. ROBERT WINN and DR. RICHARD ROVIN.

Dr. Richard Rovin, Neurosurgeon at Marquette General Health Systems and Dr. Robert Winn, Professor of Biology at Northern Michigan University joined us to discuss the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center, a collaborative effort between the two institutions to increase training of students and the effective treatment of brain tumors in patients from Upper Michigan.  To listen to select highlights of the interview with Dr.’s Rovin and Winn, please take a moment and click “HERE“.


NORTHERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY END OF SEMESTER UPDATE.

NMU PRESIDENT DR. LES WONG.

Northern Michigan University President Dr. Les Wong visited our studios to give us a semester wrap-up along with a look ahead for the summer and the next year and a half or so for Northern.  Avoiding the usual blather about budget cuts, Dr. Wong outlined plans for changes in programs and facilities at NMU and what may be some of the strongest enrollment numbers for not only the fall, but the summer semester and the rest of the year.  Wong says the positive numbers bode well for the rest of  year and for the students and the University.  To listen to Dr. Wong’s morning show interview, please click “HERE“.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYBODY!!


CHEERS!
