A BUSY, YET FUN, TUESDAY MORNING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!! MARK AND WALT!!

Another morning of all kinds of stuff going on on the big show, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.  We always find it to be more fun when we are full up with things to talk about.

From the latest adventures of the Negaunee Miners as they head downstate to Petoskey to continue on in the State Basketball Playoffs, to a chat with State Senator Tom Casperson, to a conversation with one of the speakers at Northern Michigan University who is visiting through the week.

Wow!  That’s busy!  Just the way we like it!

 

A CONVERSATION WITH SENATOR TOM CASPERSON.

MI STATE SENATOR TOM CASPERSON

State Senator Tom Casperson called in to the show recently and discussed the current budget situation in Lansing and the plans put forth by the Snyder Administration.  Senator Casperson said that while he is in agreement with a majority of the plan, there are a few issues he has with it.

He also weighed in with his early impressions of the Governor Rick Snyder era and how it seems to be going so far.  Senator Casperson also talked about how receptive Governor Snyder is to listening to him about ideas and how they impact the Upper Peninsula.
