In 2008, Al was voted "Best AM Radio Personality" by City Pages readers. Prior to his time in the Twin Cities, All hosted a synidcated talk show ont he Business Radio Network.
Al and his wife Kathy return to Fort Collins after living here in the 1970s. Together, they have two sons, and just recently had their first grandson!
Al and Kathy love to ski, but Al's passion is flying. As a private pilot, he says there are few things better than greasing a landing. "You don't need anyone else in the plane to tell you how good it was. You just know," says Al.
9-year old Tyler Weaver is a voracious reader. In fact, he's won the "Dig into Reading" contest at the Hudson Falls Public Library the past five years. This year he read 63 books from June 24 to August 3rd. Everybody is happy for little Tyler, except for the library's Director, Marie Gandron. She wants to disqualify him so he can't compete any more. She says other kids quit because they can't keep up with him.
What kind of message is the library director sending? Is Tyler being punished for succeeding? Why not name the contest after him and make his accomplishments the goal for other students to reach? Rather than making success a negative, why not accentuate the positive?
