I live in a 100 year old home in Erieville. My favorite hobby is work on that old house and it keeps me busy. This year, I put on a new porch floor and fixed the siding outside and put in a new floor upstairs. It was too much for me to tackle, but usually I try and do my own work with some help from friends and family. I am a single Mom with three beautiful children. They are all country music fans. I have been in radio for many years and in fact, my mother was a radio personality. I guess that is where I get it from. I get a real kick out of doing charity work and attend many of the events here in CNY. I would have to say that the CMA win was the high point in my career. It just doesn't get any better than that and it is thanks to you who listen to us and support us each and every morning. It wouldn't have happened without you. In my mind, it was a win for Central New York. I love working with Tom Owens. We have quickly become best friends.

There's more controversy surrounding Zero Dark Thirty, the film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. The film, which won one minor award at The Oscars on Sunday night, begins with t he voices of September 11th victims as they made their final phone calls. The only problem, the filmmakers apparently didn't ask their families if they could use those recordings in the film.
Mary Fetchet, whose son Brad worked on the 89th floor of the World Trade Centers South Tower, considers those taped words of her son a treasure, but was not amused when she learned that they were used in the film. Fetchet said, "My first thought was, "Isn't anything sacred anymore?"
The film's distributor, Sony, and studio, Annapurna Pictures, say the film is meant to be a "tribute"to the victims of 9/11 and that they 'initiated contact with a number of family memers of the 9/11 attacks" prior to the films release.
Some of the survivors of 9/11 victims hear in the film are asking for an apology and wanted the fimakers to donate to September 11th charities, but the filmmakers said they've already decided to donate some of the films profits to the national 9/11 Memorial Museum.
Are you serious?????? You should not have used the calls period. - Becky
