Welcome to another weekend, we hope yours is off to a great start! We started ours by celebrating some birthdays, learning about a great effort to protect children, preparing for Ferguson Day and hearing about “The Martian”.
The birthday list includes the man behind the Twist, one of the world’s great guitar players and a Hall of Fame pitcher who spent some time with the Cardinals. You can hear the list here.
Talk about turning tragedy into hope. Marc Klaas lost his 12-year-old daughter Polly in a kidnapping and murder in 1993. Since then his Klaas Kids Foundation has been helping parents protect their own children. The Foundation is making its annual stop in the St. Louis area Saturday at the Kirkwood Police Station, from 10am-2pm. You can learn all about it here. For more on the Klaas Kids Foundation, click here.
Also Saturday is Ferguson Day. The city of Ferguson and Lindenwood University are teaming up to provide fun for kids and educational and job opportunities for adults. Mayor James Knowles tells us all about it here.
The new Matt Damon movie “Martian” is getting a lot of attention. Find out if Harry Hamm liked it by clicking here.
On Sunday, we’ll talk to WGU Missouri’s Chancellor about a scholarship program for women wanting to pursue an IT degree and find out if funding cuts will hurt Missouri’s endangered species.
Thanks for checking in. We’ll talk to you Sunday!
