Hi everyone, it's Wild Bill I have been in Country Radio for the past 12 years. I've worked up and down the dial all over the country from South Dakota, Vermont, Michigan, Indiana to Minnesota. I've worked mornings on Z-94 back in 2004 and then took a morning show job in Columbus GA in 2005. I worked for Country station WKCN and stayed there for 2 years. I married my lovely wife Marilyn just over the Georgia border. Marilyn is from a little town called Smith Station, Alabama. I also became good friends with Alan Dupriest in Columbus GA while working with him in radio. I did the unthinkable, I left the south and moved to Mankato Minnesota and worked for country station KYSM for 4 years. My daughter Emma Elizabeth was born in Minnesota in 2008 and she is the love of our lives. It sure is nice to be back home in Georgia being close to Family and friends. I look forward to meeting and reconnecting with all of you!
Interview with Tim Griffin from www.RedState.com

I had an excellent interview with Tim Griffin who's a lawyer from Virginia and a blog contributor to the conservative website RedState. We discussed the Obama Administration forcing all public pools in the country to install a very expensive handicap mechanical lift that will cost municipalities over 10-15 thousand dollars to install and maintain. If they don't they are fined upwards to 100,000 dollars. Read the article Tim Griffin posted on RedState called: "Obama allows your children to go swimming for one more summer"
I bet all the big hotel that can afford the handicap lift love this regulation. It forces all the small business sized hotel to close their pools which gives them more business. Smells like Crony Capitalism to me!
Listening to the one female caller that advocated shutting down all recreation centers rather than not having access for her family member was stunning. This is one of the most conservative areas in the country and to hear that from the lady blew me away. Last night I was discussing this with my wife. I'm afraid that some in "the disabled" community and their family members believe themselves to be a new political class and see this as a civil rights issue and believe they are being discriminated against. They equate themselves no differently than a black person being denied access to a public place. Democrats love this because it pits one group against another. Another thought I was thinking about. The Big Hotel chains Marriot, Hilton etc must love this regulation. It shuts down the little guys and sends business their way.
