How To Celebrate Father's Day - 06/12/14

  Father's Day is coming up on Sunday.  Some of you may be thinking about what to do for dad.  I know every family is different but I'm not much on gifts just to be getting something.  There's a reason they call days like this Hallmark holidays. 
  I love it when my kids make me a card or color a picture for me.  Cookies or a box cake they put the icing on.  When it comes to stuff, if dad really wants it, he either already has it or has decided it's not the right time.
  Tell your dad you love him.  Tell him you appreciate what he does for you and your family, the sacrifices he makes so you guys can have things, go places and do things.  That's what good dad's do.  You dad would probably think it was pretty neat if you said let's take a walk, told him thank you and gave him a hug.  Doesn't cost a dime but in his mind, moments like that are priceless.  Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- How to satisfy a woman isn't the sort of lesson a dorm director should be teaching. That's the view of officials at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The school is giving a scolding to Jude Legiste, a full-time university employee who runs Drake Hall. But officials tell the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that what Legiste did isn't a firing offense. Last month, he sent a graphic email with sex tips to students in the dorm. It contained an article by a female lawyer from New Zealand offering suggestions on stimulating women. Legiste tells The Associated Press he was trying to start a conversation about how to treat women but delivered the message in an "inappropriate fashion."


DENVER (AP) -- Some pot smokers in Colorado are getting out of joint -- over pesticides in their legal weed. Two pot users have sued the legal marijuana store LivWell over the use of a fungicide called Eagle 20 EW. The chemical can be dangerous when heated and can't be used on tobacco. Lawyers say it's the first product liability claim in the nation involving the legal marijuana industry. LivWell lawyer Dean Heizer says the nine-shop chain no longer uses Eagle 20 EW. Heizer adds no consumer illnesses have been linked to marijuana pesticides in Colorado or any other state.

Dairy Goat Business

PETERSBURG, Alaska (AP) -- Victor Nelson and his wife, Tabitha, are milking an idea. They're bringing goat's milk to southeast Alaska. Fresh dairy products are a rarity in the area. KFSK-FM reports the couple is supplying raw milk from their goats to people in Petersburg. The Nelsons started with just a pair of goats. Now, they have 30. Raw milk carries the risk of disease and is heavily regulated in the state. The Nelsons say they inform their customers about the risks. One customer adds the goat's milk makes nice, frothy lattes.
