Stacy K joined us by phone recently on CenterStage Minnesota celebrating the release of her new single "Feels Good," the first release off her upcoming album this fall. Stacy talked about her positive feelings coming into recovery from alcohol and the joy of having a daughter. She's hoping to release a couple more songs this summer before releasing the whole album in the fall and supporting it with a Minnesota tour.

In the latest meeting of the breakfast minds, Marian Barcus joined Heidi and John for a breakfast of Greek yogurt, blueberries, and fresh ground decaf coffee. Marian spends much of the summer at the fishing camp north of Deer River, but invited John and Heidi to her park model trailer in Arizona any time. If they arrive mid-morning, she'll have a granola bar to share with them. Hear the whole conversation by clicking below.

This morning we had the great honor to talk with a Special Olympian from Grand Rapids.  He'll be competing in 50 and 100 meter dash, 4x4 relay and shotput. 

Lou Ferreri is a mixed media visual artist whose 120 piece show is currently on display at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji.  His exhibit, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible" is an extensive collection of intricate, elaborate doodles created on the editorial sections of the New York Times.  Twenty five of those works have an accompanying essay gifting the viewer with even more depth, context and understanding to those associated pieces.  All of the works are cholk full of a unique balance of symbolism and relatable images as well as whimsy and gravity.  The twenty five with accompanying writings are collected and displayed in the book, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible."

New advances in medicine also tend to come with a hefty dose of hype. Yes, some new cancer drugs in the hot field of precision medicine have worked remarkably well for some patients. But while many patients clamor for them, they aren't currently effective for the vast majority of cancers.
