LOADING UP THE BLOG WITH A BIG PILE OF INFO!

LOVIN' THE KEWEENAW BREWING COMPANY!

So, this is one of those days where the blog loads up fast and furious.  Lots of community information and plenty of discussion points.  From a chat with a candidate for congress to a special event combining blues music and Cajun food all to help a good cause, this blog is certainly full of it!  Of course, so is the show!  HA!

OK!  That joke was bad, but I’m sure you had at least a brief snicker!

Oh yeah!  Be sure to check out the KBC “Name the Brew” page here on the blog for the latest on the tour to name the new KBC brew!  We’re headed to the UpFront & Company next.  See you all there!


CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE DAN BENISHEK STOPS BY.

CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE DR. DAN BENISHEK.

Dr. Dan Benishek joined us this morning to discuss his run for the 1-st Congressional District as a first-time politician.  Benishek, who is running as a Republican, is a general surgeon from Crystal Falls who is running for the seat being vacated by long time Congressman Bart Stupak.  Stupak recently announced he was not going to run for re-election after this current term.  Benishek, who declared his candidacy prior to Stupak making his announcement, says he is the right person for job for a multitude reasons including his lack of political experience.  To listen to the interview from the show, please click “HERE“.  For more on Dan Benishek and his campaign, please click “HERE“.


SO, YOU WANNA SMOKE ONE UP?

MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN MICHIGAN.

Attorney Brian Bloch, with the Lake Superior Legal Center in Marquette, visited our show to discuss legal issues connected to the recently-enacted Medical Marijuana Law in Michigan.  While the law has the potential to benefit those who are truly and genuinely ill and wish to use marijuana to ease chronic pain, Bloch feels the language of the law is overly nebulous and has too many unanswered legal questions attached to it.  He joined us to let us know that he is one of the few attorneys in town willing to discuss the law in depth with clients and would be available, through the Lake Superior Legal Center, to answer questions from the public as best as he could.  To listen to the interview with Brian, please click “HERE“.
