Wild Bill McKubby 10am - 2pm







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!

Making of Tyler Farr's "Redneck Crazy"

Tyler Farr called on some very special friends to help him with his video for "Redneck Crazy" -- namely Lee Brice, Colt Ford and Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson.

 

Tyler, who met Willie several years ago at an outdoor show, texted him to ask if he'd be in the clip.

"You Will Be Made To Care" By Erick W Erickson
"You Will Be Made To Care."  By Erick W Erickson

 

You will be made to care about gay marriage. You may think it does not affect you or will not affect you or you can support it and leave well enough alone, but you cannot. The secular left and aggressive gay rights activists will not allow you to.

 
You must either fully embrace it or be shunned. You may think it does not affect your marriage, your life, or anything else, but you will be made to care — you will not be allowed to accept that others can disagree on the issue due to their orthodox faith. The slow march toward the destruction of the marital institution now picks up pace with Anthony Kennedy’s decision in Windsor. What is, at its heart, a tax case, became a vehicle for Kennedy to declare malicious intent on the preservation of marriage.
 
That’s clear from the decision. In the 90′s, the Defense of Marriage Act was enacted to preserve and recognize the traditional marital structure that the United States had had since its founding. But Anthony Kennedy declared that the purpose was ill will toward gays — ignoring that activists were seeking to upend the order of things as they had been.
 
This decision will be used to advance on the states. A muddled equal protection message will be used to force accommodations some are not willing to make and some cannot make because of their religion.
 
Luckily, we have been given time to erect firewalls. The Court’s decision leaves in place the portion of DOMA that allows states to refuse recognition to gay marriages performed in other states. That will fall in the next few years. Once that happens, there will be an even messier culture war designed to treat traditionalism as a noxious notion of a bygone era — the equivalent of Jim Crow.
 
Right now, while the left still denies that is the intention, the right should act. They should start codifying protections for religious institutions — from churches to schools. Those protections should include protections for the tax exempt status of organizations that refuse to recognize gay marriage and protections for Christian schools that do not want to treat gay marriage as an acceptable alternative to normal.
 
As I noted some time ago, gay marriage and religion are not compatible. “The left cannot take marriage out of government because for so long it has been government through which marriages were legitimized to the public and the left must also use government to silence those, particularly the religious, who refuse to play along.”
 
The gay rights movement has been very, very successful. But they have failed on the religious front. So the religious front cannot be accommodated. It must be made to yield.
 
There is one bright spot for Christians in America, though it will not appear so. Christianity in America has become soft. Persecution of the faithful will strengthen it as it has done for centuries. It will happen. We best prepare.
 
You will be made to care.

Georgia Man Paralyzed after saving drowning girl

A good Samaritan has been left paralyzed after he dove into a swift-moving creek to save a 4-year-old girl who was being swept away.
 
Even though Michael Patterson is being hailed as a hero, he has no insurance to cover what will be thousands of dollars in health care costs and rehabilitation.
 
“I was terrified, that’s it. I mean it’s my daughter,” said Carlissa Jones, talking about seeing her 4-year-old daughter Javea being swept away down Euharlee Creek along the Silver Comet trail.
 
Carlissa Jones says it was the worst moment of her life, seeing her daughter scream for help.
 
“She’s underwater. All you can see is the top of her head. She was not making any noise. All I could see was her head,” Carlissa Jones said.
 
Michael Patterson, a father himself, saw it happen and heard Javea’s screams. Jones said he dove in to help.
 
“He jumped in head first and after I grabbed her, I looked back and he was floating on top of the water,” Jones said. 
 
Though the water in the river was moving fast, the stream bed was very shallow and rocky. Patterson broke his neck the moment he hit the water.
 
Patterson’s 9-year-old son saw it all happen.
 
Davis went back to the river and spoke to Peyton Janotee who saw the drama unfold and Patterson’s son in a panic.
 
“And he goes, ‘Daddy are you OK? Are you OK, Daddy?’” Janotee said.
 
And he wouldn’t wake up. The ambulance came and they tried to do CPR. Patterson was rushed to Redmond Medical Center in Rome. He is in intensive care, paralyzed from the chest down.
 
Though he’s been told about his paralysis, Patterson’s mother, Vicki Jones, told Davis her son still has not fully grasped how badly he is hurt.
 
“I just want to wake up from this nightmare.” Vicki Jones said.
 
Patterson is a Sheetrock hanger. He had just started a new contracting job so he does not have health insurance.
 
His father is also hospitalized, dying of cancer. His mother, Vicki Jones, told Davis she doesn’t know where to turn.
 
“Pray and pray, and have a lot of faith. That’s all I can do,” Vicki Jones said.
 
She hopes somehow a fund will be set up to help with her son’s medical bills.
 
This is the second time in two weeks Michael Patterson has jumped in to save a life. He and another man pulled the driver of a tanker truck to safety after his rig was hit and burst into flames.
 
Vicki Jones said that how her son has always been.
 
“He said he did what he thought, what he hoped anyone else would have done for him. That’s not a very common thing anymore, for anyone to care about someone they don’t know,” Vicki Jones said.
 
Javea Jones said she is still scared but unhurt. Her mother, heartsick about Michael Patterson’s injuries, is still very thankful for his bravery.
 
“He’s a hero and an angel,” Vicki Jones told Davis.

Donations can also be made to the Mike Patterson Donation Fund, care of River City Bank, 228 N. 2nd Ave. SW, Rome, Ga. 30165.
 
A Facebook page also has been set up with updates on Patterson’s condition. CLICK HERE
