If you have yet to hear of this new business in town (which has the capability to go nationwide…), look them up on the web:  I have another commitment tomorrow morning and so I will replay the interview with Steve Bisbie and Derek Six (the originators and primary officers at Cogster) on the show this week.  It was a rousing interview that received rave reviews and dealt with an issue near and dear to my heart. 

Why do you love State College?  There are likely many reasons but one frequently mentioned includes the locally owned Mom & Pop businesses which make our life so much better.  Many complain about the big box stores that appear to be moving State College toward a “Plank Road, Altoona” image.  Many of these complainers keep those big box stores in business without similar allocations of their monies to the businesses who return the vast majority of your sales dollars to the local community.  Want a way to put your money where your mouth is?  Tune in tomorrow to find out how.

And a special thanks to JoeBa – Joe Batista used to lead the Icers to victory.  He now writes a blog amongst other things.  His note earlier this week was one of the few that even indicated the fateful day in history known as “Pearl Harbor Day” we celebrated this past Monday.  Most of us would love to believe the world is filled with people like you and me: simply going about our day, taking care of business and relaxing at home for a few hours before jumping in for a peaceful night’s rest.  It just ain’t so.  Whether it’s Dec 7th or Sept 11th – we need to be mindful of the position we hold in the world.  Like it or not, we are the guardians of the free world.  If we fail to recognize our need to fill that role and be vigilant toward those who would depose us, tomorrow might be another fateful day.  Thanks Joe for reminding us of the tragic events of that December day which are barely a memory to so many.
