Today is Thursday, June 17
This morning there are some storms moving across the area. Nothing too bad - but there is some lightning and heavy rain. And according to Brian's blog you might see more pop-up storms throughout the day.
That may not be the best of news for organizers getting ready for the big Cape Girardeau Regional Air Festival - but this weekend looks like it'll be dry and very hot. Speaking of the air festival this morning at some point between 6:30 and 7 we will be giving away a final pair of tickets. All you have to do is wait till we show you the screen with the phone number and be the 12th caller to win!
And if you haven't seen it yet - take a moment to check out John Dissauer's Blue Angel ride.
Bad news thought this morning for a pilot in Mayfield. He was taking his flight test - with FAA observers watching - when he crashed on landing. The pilot was injured but listed in fair conditional at a local hospital.
On The Breakfast Show this morning we are still covering the horrible discovery of 2 children found dead in a hot car in Portageville. This investigation is ongoing and we'll be working to bring you updates throughout the day.
We also have happier news this morning - around 6:20 this morning Arnold Wyrick takes us to Journey Farms in Marion where they are taking time to teach local kids the fundamentals of taking care of horses. It's a pretty cool story that'll leave you smiling this morning.
Looking ahead - today is the day when BP CEO Tony Hayward will go before a House panel in Washington, D.C. There is a pretty good chance you will be able to watch it as it happens on our LIVE news stream.
I hope you are able to have a great day - and remember to wear sunscreen!
