July 3rd cookout at Super One Foods in Marquette, MI on Friday, July 3rd, 2015Friday, July 3rd, 2015 Super One Foods, Marquette, MI – It was time to celebrate at Super One Foods in Marquette, MI! The Fourth of July was nearly upon us when Major Discount and Bill Tibor were at Super One Marquette for their annual July 3rd cookout. You could find everything you ever wanted for your ideal cookout at Super One Foods, and The Major, joined by Bill Tibor, was there to bring all of the fun to you live!

The tables outside of Super One Foods were filled with the best meat, thanks to the amazing meat department at Super One, which could be smelled cooking for miles around. The smell of cooking steak and brats drew people in from all over, including the returning Adam Carpenter, host of the Adam Carpenter Outdoor Show.

Besides all the select meat, USDA steaks, and brats available, there was a great selection of fresh produce, and there were even icy cold beverages to help keep everyone cool! They have fresh sweet corn, fresh fruit, and only the freshest steaks for your 4th of July! They even donated the proceeds from the cookout to the Janzen House in Marquette, which helps fight homelessness in our area!

Super One Foods in Marquette is your one stop shop for everything this Fourth of July! Stop by and pick up something from their amazing store! They have a selection of 23 different kinds of brats for you to choose, so everyone can find something they like!

We hope you had an amazing time with Bill and The Major, and a special thanks goes out to Super One Foods and Great Lakes Radio! Without them, none of this would have been possible!

Snowflake Review

Friday evening I had the privilege of  attending the one man performance of “Snowflake”. Gayle LaJoye was spectacular in portraying his character of a once, local known individual. Gayle’s pantomime performance  kept our attention riveted towards the stage waiting for the next antic.

This play surely contained every quality description  that the press release said it would present plus so much more. I have never seen a stage play before and I would definitely go see this performance again. If you missed it you owe it to yourself to find out where the next performance  will be and go see it. You won’t be disappointed, I wasn’t.

Thanks to the Munising Bay Arts Association and the Harger family for bringing this classic here to our town. george

Yesterday and today we ran an interview with Kelly and Kathy. Kelly runs a rescue shelter for small dogs and Kathy is the new manager of the Alger Animal Shelter. These ladies were involved in a recent rescue of over 350 dogs from a puppy mill gone real bad.

Some of the animals died, others were weak, malnourished, and diseased. They were infested with every parasite you can think of and some you can’t.  Some of the rescued dogs were brought up here for placement in good homes. We discussed what can be done about these mills which are just breeding nightmare, and how to get involved.

Please,  if you missed this interview,  look it up on the interview archives and listen to what these ladies had to say. Thank you. george

Today I played an interview with Ruth Snyder of the Lions Club here in Munising.

If you missed it, you can go to the interview archives and play it. She is always a delightful personality to interview and very compassionate about the Lions club. george

George in the Morning

Senator Tom Casperson talked with me on my show this morning, discussing several topics. During my interview with Senator Casperson I learned the following:

1. The budget is not cast in stone yet, so the resident unit officer (RUO) and perimeter response vehicle (PRV) are still on hold even though the Department of Corrections (DOC) has pulled them they can still be brought back. It is important write your senator and the Governor and let them know how you feel.

2. We learned a lot about how the DNR just took it upon themselves to destroy the businesses of the hog farmers who were promoting hog hunting in Michigan on fenced in ranches. He also told us how the DNR deceived the public by using Texas as an  example of how the pigs destroyed the land.  Texas brought in the pigs and turned them loose. in Michigan they were managed on fenced in farms.

3.  We heard how the schools have turned their focus totally on getting young people ready for college, when in fact, not everybody does well in college. We have taken the trades out of education and left those talented youth high and dry with no place to go or training to market.

The interview will be in the archives soon if you missed our program. george

There will be a supervised prescription med disposal available on April 20th  and 21st from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  at the Senior Center, located on  208 Superior Street in Munising.

If you have unused medication either prescription or over the counter, you can dispose of them for free. This  controlled disposal is intended to change older habits of dumping them in the toilet or placing them in private garbage because they will eventually end up in our public water supply.

It is spring cleaning time so let’s clean our medicine chest out. Also the Lions will be collecting used glasses and hearing aids.  If you are a senior citizen, you can get free transportation from ALTRAN.

Thanks for your cooperation george

Ruth Snyder from the Munising Lion’s Club talked about the drug collection disposal with George in the Morning. You can listen to their discussion from our archive HERE.

This week we have Munising Weslyan Church with Pastor Rob Tripp. his message is titled “Consider Jesus. I am sure that you will fid this an insightful and inspiring, thought provoking message.

God bless and see ya back on 1400 at 7 am Monday morning.

This morning I was surprised by Jason Allen, who is the State Director of Veteran Affairs in Michigan.

Michigan Office

We discussed the returning female vets, who now number 17% of our total vets coming home. It is Jason’s goal to make our vets aware of the benefits due them as Michigan is still behind all the other states and the 2 territories in the utilization of these benefits.



Hope you enjoyed this live interview. george
