We've got a lot of news stories to talk about on today's show everyone. I received some very sad news on Monday as a good friend and work colleague of mine Butch Notter passed away Sunday night. A guy I've worked with for the last 15 years Butch was a guy who taught me a lot and I will miss him. This makes me realize that we spend more time with our colleagues at work than we do with our family at home. It also opens my eyes to the fact that we are here for only a limited time and that we need to live life to the fullest each and every day.
