Morning Mix Show Notes 12/31
It's the last Morning Mix with Pete and Jen of 2010. Here's what you missed:
Some notable weddings of 2010 included Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart who tied the knot June 15 at the Governor's Mansion in New Mexico with the Governor Bill Richardson himself performing the ceremony. July 10 singer Carrie Underwood married Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher at the Ritz Carlton in Georgia. And October 23 Katy Perry and Russel Brand married in an elaborate ceremony in India.
We also named the Top Five Celebrity Stories of 2010. They included Betty White experiencing a major career rebirth starting with that brilliant Snickers ad that aired during the Super Bowl. Jay Leno took The Tonight Show back from Conan O'Brien after just three months. I'm sure Conan was the guy you saw laughing all the way to the bank after NBC paid him a reported $45 million dollars to just go away. And Jesse James ruined Sandra Bullock's year. Accolade upon accolade was piled on to Sandra in the early part of 2010 and during every acceptance speech she praised her husband for "having her back", meanwhile he was going behind her back and cheating on Sandra with a tattooed white supremacist. Sandra probably got the last laugh, though as she was throwing his crap out the upstairs window, adopting a baby she named Louis and proving that inner strength is more important than outer beauty.
We also looked back on the Top Local Stories of 2010 that affected us right here in our community. Making the list was SCSU's budget woes and the threat of cutting several programs including football; the record tornado season; the Great Minnesota Air Show, which was likely the largest event ever to be put on in Central Minnesota bringing 70 thousand plus people to St. Cloud. And coming in at number one was what happened on June 30. Stearns County officials, the FBI, BCA, earth movers and several K9 teams descended on the Rassier farm near St. Joseph that day digging up and hauling away several truckloads of soil and other items from the property. Law enforcement stated that new technology had lead to possible new breaks in the Jacob Wetterling case. Close analysis of the dirt and items ultimately turned up no new information. Jacob was abducted in the fall of 1989. No arrests have ever been made in the case.
So there you have it. The Mix 94.9 Year In Review. I, along with Peter would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for listening to Mix 94.9 and we wish you all the best for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011.
