A contract employee for the FAA started a fire at the Air Route Traffic Control Center outside Chicago on Friday that grounded or rerouted thousands of flights on Friday. The disruption lasted into the weekend.
Authorities were alerted to a problem when a family member told them about a Facebook post the contractor had made. "Take a hard look in the mirror, I have. And this why I'm about to take out ZAU and my life." ZAU refers to the control center.
Looks like we’re going to have to start demanding that air traffic controllers pass through TSA checkpoints just to get into work.
It’s a new season at Saturday Night Live, and the trending commentary is not good for last Saturday’s season premiere.
In it, the writers and actors “spoofed” the ongoing problems the National Football League has been having with its players. Players like Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and their ilk have all been in the news, both on and off the field, and none of it is good.
The skit involved football players introducing themselves, and instead of saying the name of the school they attended – which is the norm – they recited charges against them.
Not a lot funny there. But check it out for yourself. See if you don't agree...
I hosted a Big Brother day out at Maylath's Farm in Sugarloaf on Saturday. What a fun day! Maylath's is a family run farm nestled in the beautiful Conyngham Valley just 30 minutes from Wilkes-Barre. And the farm has everything you'd want for you & the kids to celebrate Fall:
*Corn Maze *Hay Ride
*Cow Train Ride
*Delicious Farm Fresh Cider
*The BEST Sweet Corn I ever tasted!
This is my cool little, Keeshaun from Pittston.
Can you guess which one of us has never been on a hayride?
The search is on for the Great Pumpkin.
We found it!
Pumpkin slingshot = awesome!!!
Big thanks to Chris Maylath and the rest of the staff at Maylath's Farm for a fun day.
And as always, if you really want to have an impact on a young kid like Keeshaun, volunteer to be a Big Brother or Big Sister today. There is a WAY TOO LONG list of kids waiting to be matched. In fact, 270 kids are still in need of a Big. That Big could be YOU!!!
Ever wonder what NBA players do with their downtime?
Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder plays NBA video games on his PlayStation. On The Tonight Show this week, he told Jimmy Fallon he's really good at it. In fact, he and some of his friends have summerlong tournaments.
Except for his brother, who gets too intense and might break Kevin's TV.
Oh, and by the way, Kevin doesn't play as himself. That would be "kinda arrogant." So instead, he plays as LeBron James.
And in case you missed it, Kevin is this year's cover model for NBA2K15. Check out the trailer for it. Yes, a trailer, for a video game...
