***Today’s Topics***


- Cable as we know it will be changing. HBO is the first one to do it, but it may start to become a regular thing. You can individually order HBO alone, without having cable.

- Before we get to Scott, we talk about the store in a Buffalo Mall that has engraved in the tile, "Wide Right" and "No Goal." They had to know they'd get some grief and press. Right now they have a rug covering it, but now they have to re-tile it. Their intentions weren't to ruffle feathers.

- Now to Scott:

- Scott is the owner of the Ice Cream Factory in Chadwicks! He now has a location open at the Sangertown Square Mall. Scott thinks this is crazy how much publicity they're getting.

- Scott talks about the decision to move to the mall. A lot of this decision stems from customer demands.

- The Hobika Law Firm is putting up $500 to the person who guesses the one who will lose the most weight and by how much.
