WSGW OnLine and App Poll: Difficult American History


(Charlie Rood)   I’m thinking David Crosby was in a drug induced, alcohol stupor, and relating back to his prison days when he made this comment.

David Crosby Says Ted Nugent ‘Not Good Enough’ for Rock Hall

Ted belongs.   Enough said.


Ian Kinsler of our Detroit Tigers, talking about umpire, Angel Hernandez:   “I don’t know how, for as many years he’s been in the league, that he can be that bad. He needs to reevaluate his career choice, he really does. Bottom line.”

You don’t have to read between the lines there!


Here’s an eclipse story we never thought of:

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (AP) _ A Pennsylvania school district says children won’t be let outside for recess during the August 21 solar eclipse because of the potential harm to students who look at the sun. The Cumberland Valley School District sent a letter to parents saying the decision was made after consulting the district’s physician.  The letter says district officials recognize that the opportunity to view an eclipse is rare, but the safety of students is more important.  NASA officials recommend viewing the eclipse through specially-made glasses to prevent eye damage.

Good reminder to everyone to safely view the eclipse!
