Keeler Show Notes for Thursday, August 7th, 2014
Videos of the Day:
- Bill is on a new cholesterol medication and there may be some side effects, but not as bad as the other one.
- The judge finally made a ruling yesterday on the Zecca/Vescera case and they have been removed from the DEM line on the Ballot.
- Golf Karts in Little Falls will happen with an asterisk. We discuss the story of Golf Karts on the street. Insurance would definitely be needed.
- Kristine talks about the insurance for petty cabs.
- We discuss foods that you can’t get anywhere else and mayonnaise.
- We have a lengthy discussion about Mayonnaise.
- A man in Florida was so upset when he got pulled over and ticketed and he called 911 because the cop was taking too long.
- Beautiful next couple days expected, probably the best 4 days we’ve had all year. We do talk about the unpredictability of the weather right now.
- A man got pulled over by a cop and he was not happy. The cop kept him waiting for one hour while the police officer was writing him a ticket. The reason he called 911 was because he had to wait that long. He was arrested for misuse of 911.
Ray Stagich – The Weather Channel
- We make Ray mad this morning by saying the weather is unpredictability. Ray is celebrating his 15th year of marriage today.
- Ray explains the process of predicting showers and thunderstorms and the percentage of rainfall.
- Zecca and Vescera are appealing a State Supreme Court decision removing them from the DEM ballot.
- Ultimately the judge is saying ignorance of the law is not a good excuse. The fact that the BOE told them 500, doesn’t change the fact that they needed 708.
- We talk about the Taliban media contact.
Gordy Ackerman and Mark Verri
- We discuss with them their mission to put Golf Carts on to the streets.

- He talked about how his petitions were challenged, but they were upheld.
- He talks about why he should be the Assemblyman and he talks about his campaign strategy and it doesn’t involve Claudia.
- Sheriff Farber talks about what motivated him to run for this Assembly seat.
- We talk about the debate and why Farber doesn’t want one.
The Mayonnaise Taste Test
- Can Bill, Jeff, and Kristine tell the difference between Hellman’s Mayo and WalMart Great Value Mayo.
- From the moment they tasted both, all three knew exactly which one was which and which was better. That begs the question, is the $1 saving worth it?
Emerson Mish – CNY Summer Shootout
- Before we talk to Emerson we talk to Martin about road work and rumble strips on the road.
- We also speak with Stefan about his stolen bike he gives us an update. His mom stopped by a garage sale and she picked up a bike for $30 that looked a little similar to his old one.
- After his bike was stolen, a police officer gave him $50 and he talks about using 30 of it for the bike and the rest back to the officer to help someone else in need.

Continuing with Frank Vescera and Jim Zecca

- The question that someone asks is who paid for their attorneys.
