Hi there and welcome to my radio show blog. I'm glad you are here and hope you will find something useful.

I'm a 72 year old radio broadcaster who found great peace in his old age in the forgiveness that Jesus Christ offers to sinners.

When I was working at a radio station in Fort Dodge, Iowa, God was kind enough and merciful enough to draw me back into fellowship with Him. I had drifted so far away from God I'm sure some thought there was no hope for me. Thank God Jesus came to seek and save those who are lost.

One day when I was driving back to Missouri to spend a weekend there at my home, I saw a sign on a farm pasture North of Indianola. It said "Prepare to meet thy God." I was 62 years old at the time and thinking of my mortality, and decided to try and get things right with God. Of course, I learned, only Jesus makes us right with God. But that sign was God's love sign in life to me to come to Him.

God showed me that Christ took the punishment for all my sins. Nothing I could do could make me right before God. As a matter of fact He showed me my own righteousness was as filthy rags and useless. Only He could save me and make me acceptable in His presence by clothing me with the righteousness of Christ.

November 19, 2006 was the day God led me to pray and put faith in what Jesus Christ had done on the Cross as my only hope for salvation. He was God's sacrifice for my sins. He alone could make me acceptable before God the Father.

So here I am today sharing this Good News with you. Do you need forgiveness of sins? Go to Jesus. Do you need your broken heart to be healed? Go to Jesus. Are you held prisoner by certain sins? Go to Jesus and He will set you free. He has done it for me and I know He will do it for you.

Rich's Joke Of The Day:

The drill sergeant making his morning announcements to a group of newcomers in a training camp, stated: "Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good news Private Peters will be setting the pace on our morning run.”

With this the platoon was overjoyed, as Private Peters was overweight and terribly slow. But then the drill sergeant finished his statement: "Now for the bad news. Private Peters will be driving a truck."

Rich's Crazy News Story Of The Day:
A pair of German artists are allowing visitors to their Web site to vote on whether or not they will use a guillotine to behead a sheep. The two Berlin artists created a fully functioning guillotine and pictured it on their Web site alongside its possible victim, a live sheep. The artists said their "experiment" is a "reflection on our society" and "represents the current state of democracy." Authorities said the pair could face animal cruelty charges if they harm the sheep.

The Wacky World of Crime With Officer Hancock's police blotter:

An employee, who works at the Columbus, Ohio water-treatment plant, was walking near a local river when he stepped on a shoe that appeared to be full and had a bone visibly sticking out of it. When police took a closer look at the shoe, they found it was full of sticks and dirt, and the bone appeared to be from a steak, not a human skeleton.

This is Officer Hancock. Be careful. There are a lot of wackos out there!

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!

What did the dairy cow order when she got to the drive-thru window at McDonalds? Nothing - she just wanted a little attention. That's what Sandy Winn says was the reason her cow, Darcy, wandered from her pen and ended up at takeout window of the fast-food restaurant near Brush, Colorado. Winn said that Darcy is a good cow until she's bored - and then she goes looking for attention. The cow didn't get a burger and was taken home.
