Our Comcast Business Class win lunch for your office contest continues and over the past month, we've had winners from all over the Midstate. First, faithful WLAC listener Micah Phillips from Benchmark Realty in Franklin bought some chinese food for his office with his winnings!
Micah said no one wanted their picture taken so he sent a photo of the grub...
Next, I had the opportunity to meet Brian Werner from the Tennessee Lottery, another Comcast Business Class win lunch for your office winner. Brian gave me an awesome tour of the Lottery headquarters but didn't have tips on how to win the Lottery!! ;)
A couple of weeks back, Kimbery Beasley of New Life International in Madison was our lucky winner. Kimberly says New Life is a non-profit organization that is involved in a number of things and I got to tour their office as well...
Finally, I got to meet the wacky crew at Certified Pain Specialists in Gallatin! Tamara Gentry is an avid WLAC listener and this gang is soon to go out to lunch on us!
Don't forget that you could be one of our next winners. To nominate your office to win a $100 AMEX gift card, just email your name, office name and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org to win lunch from Comcast Business Class and WLAC!!
U.S. researchers say that the taste of beer - whether it contains alcohol or not - makes us want to drink more. To find this, researchers from the Indiana University School of Medicine scanned the brains of volunteers as they tasted beer a very small amount of beer, and again as they tasted Gatorade. They found that when participants drank beer their brain scan showed significantly more dopamine activity compared to when they drank the Gatorade. Dopamine is a feel-good chemical the brain releases in its reward centers.

(Nashville, TN) -- If you've waited until the last minute to file your taxes, that last minute has arrived.
Today is the deadline to file income taxes with the IRS and state of Tennessee, or ask for an extension. IRS officials say choosing to file electronically is still the best step someone can take to make sure their return is accurate and complete. Those who insist on filing a paper return are reminded to check their numbers carefully, especially when it comes to ID numbers like Social Security.
If you've heard me on the air the past couple of days, you may have noticed I sound like I'm speaking with my fingers plugging my nose. No, it's just springtime allergies kicking my butt! It doesn't seem to matter what I take, the sneezing and sniffling just gets worse. To kick off the spring season, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America released a list of the top 100 U.S. allergy capitals. On that list, three Tennessee cities came in the top 10: Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga. Surprisingly, Nashville entered the list at a relatively low 34. Please pass the tissue...
Spring is here which means it's time to blow the dust off my bike, fill the tires with air and lube up the chain. If you are a bicycle enthusiast like me, check this out.
The American Diabetes Association is challenging riders to be part of the movement to Stop Diabetes by participating in their annual Tour de Cure®, a cycling event to raise funds to help fight diabetes. The Red Riders stop will roll through Franklin on May 18.
This year, more than 65,000 cyclists nationwide are expected to participate in the Tour de Cure with all funds raised supporting the prevention and cure of those affected by diabetes. Individuals and teams composed of co-workers, family and friends are taking the ride of their life and helping raise funds to change the future of diabetes for the nearly 26 million Americans with the disease.
