It’s all about the family. Sure, that’s pretty close to the Family Channel’s marketing line, but it’s just a major truth. One that WFTS Promotion Manager KARLENE BALL is acting upon. She and her hubby and little one are going to move back to her neck of the woods…the NE. It’s just too far down I-95 from there to Tampa. So if you’re in upstate NY or Mass….and looking for a talented and super promo pro, she’s your lady. Can’t wait to see how it all works out, but I’m betting on it being Well Dunne!
Yes, her Promo Manager job at WTFS is open.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers (who really need a brush up in grammar vis a vis their name imo) has put together a list of the best places to live and work, naming New York City #1, with Toronto #2, Chicago #5 and Houston #10. Obviously, humidity didn’t play a role in this survey.
But they left out GRAND RAPIDS. MI which is fighting back from making another list…one not so flattering. If you don’t know the story about how this AMAZING video came about, then click here and learn how a group effort + a focused goal + creative + talented camera people and producers can make a difference beyond belief.
Think About This: "Not to forgive is to be imprisoned by the past, by old grievances that do not permit life to proceed with new business. Not to forgive is to yield oneself to another’s control… to be locked into a sequence of act and response, of outrage and revenge, tit for tat, escalating always. The present is endlessly overwhelmed and devoured by the past. Forgiveness frees the forgiver. It extracts the forgiver from someone else’s nightmare." ~ Lance Morrow
