Batman has the Joker, Superman has Lex Luthor, Mario has Bowser, and Melia has Johnny. I think I will from here on call him Johnny the Conquerer. Johnny the Conquerer has done what many have not been able to do...he beat Melia, not once...or even twice. Nope, Johnny the Conquerer has beaten Melia FIVE times!! Now, considering that we have only been playing the game for eight or so months, and you have to wait 30 days to win again, Johnny the Conquerer is setting a blistering pace. At this point, I almost believe that hearing his voice on the air gets Melia's nerves going. Now, if only we could get Johnny the Conquerer to teach a workshop or something to help others get the win as well. Melia does a fantastic job playing You Can't Beat Melia each day. It must be a task to go into a contest blind and have the pressure of trying to win every day, but Melia does it wonderfully....unless Johnny the Conquerer is on the line. So kudos Johnny the Conquerer, you sir win again.

A state audit has discovered $300,000 in city funds missing in Casey, where a fire last summer destroyed City Hall and city financial records. The city's longtime clerk was fired last year and the audit says she told investigators she'd taken money that wasn't hers.

Well, so much for a daily update on the Iowa State Fair. It was a fun time as always, even though it rained during the performance of Restless Heart we had a great time!! We ran to the front of the stage just as it started to rain. Great Show!! I could tell the guys were having fun too.

I always enjoy meeting listeners at the fair and this year they got to be stars on KIX 101.1. It was fun recording them and I can hardly wait to hear them on the air. There is a lot of talent in Iowa!!

No blog about the Iowa State Fair would be complete without mentioning the food...I had my staples of Hoppy's on the Hill Lemonade and those yummy cinniesmith cinnamon rolls. My son said I didn't bring enough home for him. I tryed the salt water taffy and loved it. I had my traditional Hot Beef Sundae from the Beef Producers Tent and Pork sandwich from the Pork Producers tent, a Greek gero, cheese curds and a strawberry smoothie complete with a take home glass.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our KIX 101.1 State Fair Studios and I'll be hearing you soon on KIX 101.1!

Good Morning Kix Country!

Yesterday's events in Virginia had a large impact on us here at Kix 101.1. We were shocked and saddened by the news. As a result, social media was rather dark yesterday. In response to that, we have decided to lighten your timeline on Facebook today. We are sharing all kinds of positive stories throughout the morning. To read and share the love please check out our Facebook page Iowa's Best Country Kix 101.1!
