I was born & raised in Marysville, Washington (the other Marysville). I am the son of teacher parents so education was pretty important in my family. I graduated with a B.S. degree in Organizational & Mass Communications from Eastern Washington University (after a lengthy battle over a typing compentency test, which I eventually won). When I got to college I asked someone who had the best parties and they told me to try the Radio & Television Department. So I got a job on the campus station and it turns out the guy was right, I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.
I'd like to know what you are up too. Send me an e-mail about your favorite things to do, fun websites you've found, funny stories or gossip you may have heard and things that you and your friends and co-workers are talking about (I can always use the material). Thanks for listening and thanks for stopping by my page. By the way if you have any thoughts about stuff you'd like to see here, send me an e-mail. - Manley

WEIRD LAWS IN THE UNITED STATES
No plumber's crack
Remember that sagging-pants trend that caught on among young men a few years back? In Flint, MI, that can land you in jail. In 2008, Flint Chief of Police David Dicks began implementing a law to arrest those caught with the fashion style. Wearing pants below the butt is punishable by 93 days to a year in jail and fines of up to $500. The American Civil Liberties Union criticized the law, saying it violated people's rights to free expression. (Ever time I saw somebody wearing their pants like this I always said, "there ought to be a law" and now there is.)
