WKOK Sunrise with Mark Lawrence Monday, June 5, 2023:

This Morning — America’s First News with Gordon Deal:

  • Some doom-and-gloomers are warning about falling birthrates in the U-S and around the world. But at least one economist says there’s no need to panic…
  • Also, as your college grad embarks on a new career, we’ll have things moms and dads should and should NOT do to help the cause…
  • And protecting yourself against the gut-punch of an online travel scam…

7:10am: Dr. Lenaire Ahlum, Founder, Executive Project Director, Susquehanna Valley Community Education Project, and Dr. Carl Jensen, SVCEP Board Member,  on the status and progress of the new community college in The Valley, how they know community colleges work for rural areas, how affordable, accessible and relevant the SVCEP will be?   We’ll ask about Dr. Jensen’s background, lots of questions about the upcoming Business Leaders Forum regarding the Susquehanna Valley Community College Business Plan, topics included and the status of the Nursing Assistant Training and Competency Program.  www.newcommunitycollege.org

7:40am: Joannah McGregor and Paula Christy, founding members of UCANN, on what they are doing on the noise abatement front, why this is still a new idea around here, and how there are already existing laws to prevent illegal modifications to exhaust systems. We’ll talk why police don’t enforce the laws, and why mayor’s and councils aren’t concerned. We’ll ask why the noise problem is significantly worse and why it matters that we have quiet communities.

8:30am to 10:00am: Joe was outside and saw an actual rainbow. He had a fit!
