You might remember your WSGW Morning Team Show brought this situation to your attention, and once again, the power of the WSGW Morning Team to get things done is proven with this update…..

Krispy Kreme has reached an agreement with a Minnesota college student who drove to Iowa every weekend to buy hundreds of doughnuts to resell them in the Twin Cities area.

The company said in a statement Monday that Jayson Gonzalez of Champlin can now work with Krispy Kreme as an independent operator. The deal also includes a 500-dozen doughnut donation when he starts up again.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the 21-year-old Gonzalez also announced the deal on his Facebook page, adding that he’s “pumped” to continue his business.

Last week, Krispy Kreme told Gonzalez to stop the resell venture because it created a liability for the company.

The confectionary giant said in its statement Monday that the “temporary stoppage” was to ensure product quality and regulatory compliance.

 

Your WSGW Morning Team Show take on this was Krispy Kreme was not going to look good from a public relations standpoint and would be better served by using this as a marketing campaign.

Where was the most unusual location for a ballot cast on Tuesday?!?!

NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) – An election official in Pennsylvania didn’t think anything of the absentee ballot application until he saw the out-of-this-world voting location.

The New Castle News reports that the application to Lawrence County’s voter services department listed the location as “International Space Station, low Earth orbit.“   Director Ed Allison says his reaction was “What?“   But then he found out that astronaut Andrew “Drew“ Morgan, currently on the space station, has an address in Neshannock Township and is a registered voter in the county.

County IT director Rick DiBello set up a secure email and password and a fillable PDF file that Morgan received, filled it out and sent back.

DiBello says he thought “that is pretty cool.“ And Allison calls it “very, very cool“, and he adds: “This is the future.“

What musical artist has just become only the 5th ever to achieve Top 40 Hits in the last four decades?!?!

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Kenny G has achieved a rare Billboard chart record in an unexpected way.

He has become only the fifth act to achieve a top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in each of the last four decades.    It’s because he’s one of the featured artists on the Kanye West song “Use This Gospel,” which is number 37 this week.

The other four acts who have achieved this milestone are Michael Jackson, Madonna, U2, and “Weird” Al Yankovic.

Should Government Mandate You to Wear a Bicycle Helmet?

DETROIT (AP)  – A government agency is recommending that all 50 states enact laws requiring bicyclists to wear helmets to stem an increase in bicycle deaths on U.S. roadways.   The recommendation was among several issued by the National Transportation Safety Board after a hearing Tuesday on bicycle safety.

The agency says 857 bicyclists died in crashes with motor vehicles in the U.S. last year, a 6.3% increase over 2017.   Bicycle deaths rose even though total road deaths fell 2.4%.

The NTSB also found that improved road designs to separate bicycle and vehicle traffic, and making bicyclists more visible through clothing, lights and technology would reduce the number of cyclist deaths.

NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt says if changes aren’t made, more bicyclists will die.
