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!

ELECTIONS BOARD-FLAG FLAP

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Oops! The stars go on top. Voters in the District of Columbia have gotten their election guide. But the DC flag graphic on the cover is upside-down. The nation's capital has a flag with three stars on top and three stripes on the bottom. Yesterday, a spokeswoman for the D.C. Board of Elections said the seeming goof was deliberate, meant to cut through voter apathy. Later, the Washington Post reported Board of Elections officials told the city council the flag flip was a mistake.

4-MINUTE ARREST

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Pockets overflowing with cash might seem like good thing. But not if you're a bank robber. A suspect was busted just four minutes after a Wells Fargo branch in Spokane, Washington, was robbed. Officer Shane Phillips was working an extra-duty security detail. He noticed a man walking past him with money falling out of his pockets and Phillips had just heard a radio call about the bank stickup. A police spokeswoman says Phillips detained the suspect and called for back up. Police say 37-year-old Jerrod Bestrom was booked into the county jail for investigation of first-degree robbery.

RAFT-A-PALOOZA

LACONIA, N.H. (AP) -- It's not a lunch date but a launch date. A New England group says it has set a new Guinness World Record for the simultaneous launch of 396 canoes and kayaks. It all happened in less than 15 seconds and was organized by the New Hampshire Lakes Association. The record attempt was part of LakeFest 2014: Raft-a-Palooza in August. The festival is a fundraiser for the group, which works to protect lakes and their watersheds.

DRUGS IN M&MS BAG

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- Those aren't M-and-M's. Two New Mexico women are charged with trying to smuggle drugs into an Albuquerque jail. Authorities say a guard saw the women stash a bag of M-and-M's behind an ATM in the lobby of the Metropolitan Detention Center. Officials say the candy wrapper held heroin, pot, tobacco, and other contraband. The women were arrested.
