This Morning — America’s First News with Gordon Deal

  • The latest on the rescue and recovery efforts from Hurricane Ian…as the big storm worked its way across Florida and up the East Coast…
  • Also, soaring energy prices driven in part by the war in Ukraine could get more complicated for the U-S. Hear the effect of a looming recession in Europe…
  • And the latest phrase for the workplace: productivity paranoia…

7:10am: Katrina Mouery, Co-Executive Director, Sunbury Branch, Greater Susquehanna Valley YMCA, will be back with a ‘fall check-in’ on the many things happening at the Y. Believe it not, we’ll cover the upcoming holiday coat drive and the search for coats, and maybe a donation or two for the cause. They will mention the upcoming 5K, their fall/winter swim lessons, the YMCA Art Center update, and of course, the mission and work at the GSVYMCA. I’ll ask about the worker shortage again.

7:40am: Doug Bertanzetti, Executive Director, SUMMIT Early Learning, with an update on the mission and work of SUMMIT Early Learning, the challenges they’ve faced lately, the huge scope of their work and success. We’ll discuss their upcoming ‘Touch a Truck’ event (This Saturday, Oct. 8, 11am Middleburg, in the bus loop between the high school and the elementary school). We’ll discuss what SUMMIT is and what they are not, and we’ll learn about their unmet needs.

8:30am to 10:00am: Open phones.  Mark wants to keep the nation politically divided…so that we have good On The Mark arguments.
