Say hi! - 05/06/14

The past couple of days, I've met some of our viewers in person for the first time; at a fundraiser Sunday and a baseball game Monday. 
What I appreciate the most is 1.) their willingness to say hello and 2.) their honesty.
They've been honest about the fact that they really liked the "old show" with Kelly and Nick.  They were hesitant to give us a shot (both the new format and the new people) but now say they're glad they stuck around and like waking up with us.
It's hard when part of your routine changes - I totally understand.
I'm feeling so grateful for the hard work we're putting in - and for the relationships coming out of it.
Thanks for spending your mornings with us and the next time we're out, don't be afraid to say hi!

CALIFORNIA DROUGHT-MEDICAL MARIJUANA

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- It's a unique argument against growing pot in California -- it's a waste of water. Sacramento County supervisors are standing by their decision to label outdoor marijuana growing as a waste of H-2-Oh during the drought. The Sacramento Bee reports growers could face fines of up to $500 per day. Pro pot advocates say the weed growers are being unfairly singled out and the board should focus on larger water users.

RUNAWAY ROULETTE BALL-LAWSUIT

HANOVER, Md. (AP) -- Leander Stocks is suing a Maryland casino over a roulette ball. Stocks says he was hit by a wayward roulette ball just above his left eye in December of 2013. Now, he's seeking a total of $300,000 for negligence and battery from the Maryland Live casino. Stocks suit says after the ball hit him, an employee squeezed drops into his eyes without permission. Stocks says he become disoriented and hit his head against a wood door, knocking him unconscious. According to online court records, a federal judge has denied a request from the casino to toss out the case.

METH IN TRUNK

GLOCESTER, R.I. (AP) -- It's not your usual meth lab. Authorities in Glocester, Rhode Island, charge Kevin Lewis was cooking meth in the trunk of his car. Police say they stopped Lewis for an active warrant and noticed stuff in the back seat used in the production of the illegal drug. When they popped the trunk, officers say there was a batch of meth cooking inside. Lewis appeared in federal court yesterday on charges of manufacturing and possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.

MAKER'S MARK-LAWSUIT

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- You can raise a toast to Maker's Mark, after the distillery won a round in federal court. A California judge has tossed out a suit charging that Maker's Mark claim of being handmade bourbon amounts to false advertising. The judge ruled that a reasonable consumer would understand that the distilling process would involve equipment and automation. The judge noted the label on the red-wax sealed bottle clearly describes the process and points consumers to its website. A lawyer for the plaintiffs (Safora Nowrouzi and Travis Williams) says they're reviewing the judge's decision.
