5 counties in Michigan: Police to stop, drug test drivers

This to me, is a real stretch of the law.
You're in a hurry, late for work and now must worry about the police stopping you to check for drugs?
Unreal!

Re: Taking pet into Canada

I too, have heard the Pitbull stuff, or actually read in my research. It's an American Fox Hound. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Foxhound Basically quiet, but the hound part...if se sees a squirrel or a rabbit. Also, dog food must be unopened, from what I've read. Thank you both for responses.

Taking pet into Canada

Question. Taking a dog into Canada then back to US. Going to Vet to have shots, paperwork, etc. Someone at Vet said I need paperwork to get pet back into US. True?

Re: What is your view on social media?

None of it. I guess you gotta be social.

Not everyone out there is your "friend." Too, do people have really, really low self esteem? If ...

One stopset per hour. The new norm?

Been noticing the stations that only stop once an hour for commercials. Examples I can site: KQCH 94.1 at night, WMID 1340 all the time. If, when, I listen to certain (mostly smaller markets) I will notice psa's, promos and more psa's. Can't sell? No sales folks? Was surprised to see, in the comment...

Meanwhile, Amazon and Sears struck a deal last week. Sears stock went up 20% one day, though went down next day but it's like giving blood to someone on life support.

Re: 106.3 in Esky

Now that 102.5 the Moose gets downgraded to 60kw, would it make sense to have the 3 Country FMs as 96-7 102-5 106-3 Maverick" or "Maverick Country" and a simulcast? There seems to be an overlap on the three. Is 96.7 on yet? Haven't been on in a few months right after rebranding from Yooper to Maveri...

Re: LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

Sears at one time had 3,500 stores. Now 695. K-Mart had over 2000 stores once and is now at 600-ish. I guess one can look at companies put out of business by K-Mart/Sears. Zayre comes to mind for me. Still, this company is hemorrhaging bad! I personally thought it was sad when last August in Sault S...

I always laugh when the media reports it as "JC Penny" while showing the correct "JC Penney" signage. Houghton's JC Penney is in its final days. Marquette's closed a year ago or so. Escanaba at Delta Mall is toast. Sears in Milwaukee Southridge now added to closing list. Kohls earlier (in May) annou...
