I've talked before about the education you can get just by listening to the various Talk Backs we have on KHMO on a given day. Today is a good example.

In the 8 o'clock hour, Will Mitchell will be in from Mitch's Appliance Repair. Mitch has many years of experience in appliance repair, and will clue us in on things we can look out for to keep from having to call him. Then, Allen Ballard stops by from Speedee Print. He'll fill us in on all the printing services he offers. And, we might cover some Ralls County history, as well.

Then, at 9, Melissa Hamilton from Rustic Oak Riverview Dining at Sawyer's Creek will be in. They're open for the season, and you know the food will be good and the view will be spectacular. We'll stay on the property next, as Jeanne Youngwirth checks in from Sawyer's Creek Family Fun Park. They've got some special events coming up, along with all the usual stuff, from bumper boats to mini-golf to the wine shop to the sandwich shop to the laser adventure, etc., etc.

Then, you can hang around to listen to the Cardinals sweep the Reds at 10:40.
