Panhandle Live for Oct. 1, 2012
by Hans Fogle,posted Oct 1 2012 11:41AM
Welcome back! Glad to be back at the blog this morning. We've been making some changes on the program, mainly with timing! We now begin every weekday at 9:00am. That makes for a busy schedule but still full of good information!
This morning Jerry Mayhew stopped by to talk about the impact of the Patient protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) or Obamacare. He said that the consequences of some parts of that legislation may make affordable care a bit difficult. Still, it sounds like there is light at the end of the tunnel.
We spoke with Linda McQuaid about Apolloween! The haunted theater kicks off October 5th and runs for six scarey nights! There's also more seasonal fun and some events for those who may not like Halloween. Check it out on their website and in the interview.
Tina Combs gave us the big run down for October and even into November with the Chamber of Commerce. The Community Showcase is coming up next month, along with the chamber's annual dinner. Get the complete listing online.
And we spoke with Marshall DeMeritt from Fargo Insurance. He kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness month this morning. Fargo locations are again collection bras for the third annual Bras for a Cause event to raise money for local Relay for Life Events. You can learn more at their site and by visiting their offices.
