The LuLac Edition #766, Mar. 26th, 2009










PHOTO INDEX: THE TALKERS OF WILK WITH BLOG EDITOR, SUE HENRY, STEVE CORBETT, NANCY KMAN AND KEVIN LYNN, ANN LOKUTA AND COUNTY COMMISSIONER STEVE URBAN.

NOT SO FAST.........

Deposed (notice I didn't say disgraced) former Judge Ann Lokuta got some good news Wednesday. The state Supreme Court halted an election to fill the judicial seat of Lokuta, who was bounced from the bench last year by the state Court of Judicial Discipline. The Supreme Court also ordered the discipline court to consider reopening Lokuta’s case because three of the witnesses testifying against her have pleaded guilty in an ongoing federal corruption probe at the courthouse. They are of course Judges Ciavarella and Conahan along with William Sharkey who was the Court administrator. These three stooges in effect railroaded Lokuta and denied her a pension and a career. Lokuta told WYOU TV that she was grateful "for the support she got from everyday people." With this news, there is a good possibility Lokuta can get her job back. The ruling has already reinstated her pay. In an ironic twist, the ruling came on the same day that disgraced (notice I didn't use the word deposed) Judge Mark
Ciavarella asked for money back from the state because he has not yet been sentanced in court. This is a made for TV movie in the making.

WHO'S ON PLAN?

Who says American workers can't get decent health care? Hey, come to Luzerne County and just volunteer and you'll get health care! Michael Buffer reports in the Citizen's Voice that recently departed Prison board members Wister Yuhas and Robert Payne were covered by First Priority Health. Seems like no one knew it until the county benefits administrator told them they were going off the plan on April 1st. Minority Commissioner Steve Urban wants to know what county official put them on and why? Urban asked the questions when looking into reducing health care costs with a “health care audit” to verify that beneficiaries and their dependents are entitled to coverage. The county pays $12,000 per county employee for health care coverage. Yuhas was on the family plan while Payne was on a single plan. The quote of the day comes from County manager Doug Pape who said, “As far as we know, no one else is getting benefits that shouldn’t be". The thing that bothers me and other taxpayers, some who are struggling to pay their health care premiums is the "as far as we know" comment. Home Rule is looking soooooooo good just about now!

Still defend Annie from Dupont. You are the epitomy of a left leaning socialist who is encumbered by your own class warfare philosophies. You, sir, are a bum! And Lokuta is a bum mette.

so 10 hours every day of uninformed arrogance from Kevin Lynn. Pollyanna naivety from Nacy Kman (hopefully she will show a little of her great legs) condescension from Sue Henry and gravely voiced unintelligible garbage from Steve Corbett isn't enough? They are going to cut 1 hour of the most entertaining talk show host they have so the 4 of them can repeat what they have said all day long?
I can see them appearing on WVIA it exposes them to more of an audience, and from the lack of facebook activity and all of 70 some friends, on their page, they don't have much of an audience so they need the reach, but to have the hour on the air is repetitive, redundancy that isn't wanted or needed.
Let's try to guess the audience. Yonki, Dick I mean Duke from Dallas, Walter G, Carl Romanelli...

I SEE WE TOOK OUR BITTER PILLS TODAY. I WAS NOT THERE TONIGHT BECAUSE OF A PREVIOUS ENCOUNTER. I WAS THE MAIN SPEAKER FOR THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF THE CHRONICALLY SILLY ANNUAL DINNER IN ARCHBALD. A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL. I DID TAPE THE SHOW AND THOUGHT THYE GROUP FROM WILK DID VERY WELL. BUT I'M SURE YOU'LL DISAGREE.

Hey, diss Nancy and Kevin and the gang all you want. They do a good job. I just got back from the Arena and saw that Rippon kid skating. He was tremendous, he did things with his legs that I saw no skater do. When Kevin and Nancy interviewed him, I thought "big deal". But watching him was like watching someone you know is going to be a big star. Nancy and kevin brought him to my attention and like many of their program segments, it was worthwhile and informative. I will catch the rebroadcast of the show on 44 but I know the crew from WILK will not disappoint, just like young Mr. Rippon.

Must be something to see how Kevin and Corbett get their egos into one building at the same time! They seem to think news happens to bring us Lynn and Steve. Fact is, the majority of the local population never have and never will tune into WILK. They just arent as important as they like to think they are and neither are their opinions! And now back to the music.

One of the stories Nancy and Kevin covered was the cell phone controversey in Wyoming County. Saw the kid with her mom going to court and she looked like Palin's oldest daughter. The kids should not be charged like the DA wants them to but where are the parents letting girls do this. Pajama slumber party my ass. But again, Nancy and Kevin brought a great take on this issue.

"I DID TAPE THE SHOW AND THOUGHT THYE GROUP FROM WILK DID VERY WELL. BUT I'M SURE YOU'LL DISAGREE."

I don't disagree, my point was that they didn't have to air it on the radio.... I watched a little of it, I would have watched it anyway, but they bump Savage's show for every little thing. Again, they did not offer anything new. Their comments are the same all day every day. I understand expansion of the audience by them going on WVIA, but it was not, is not necessary to simulcast it on WILK..... They offer nothing new at least Savage offers entertainment, while none of the 4 are anything near entertaining, they are talk show hosts in the 72nd market with a very limited fan base, let us listen to someone who has the talent to be aired nationally...... and their facebook friendship list is abysmal, it shows the lack of any real following, other than the same callers day in and day out.

Caught the WVIA special, has Kevin Lynn really gotten as fat as it appears. Holy crap! Mr. former professional tennis player which even though he played the satellites I guess is technically correct. But the way he attacks Rush Limbauh for his weight, this guy doesn't have room to talk.

 
At 11:29 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Who is Savage? What is WILK? I understand they program Rush Limbo
and thats enough reason for me to avoid them entirely. Didnt they used to hav a loudmouth named Williams who thought he was relevant too? WILK is to local radio what the Abington Journal is to local news. Corbett couldnt get a job at a newspaper, Lynn has found his last refuge and Ms Henry never belonged on the airwaves in the first place!

Nice photo David, but I can not believe that is the same Kevin Lynn who insults Rush Limbaugh about his weight problem. Kev is carrying around one serious paunch. I saw them on television and I could not believe what a hypocrite he is. He is always extolling the virtues of the golden rule, perhaps he should follow it, or at least trim down that gut if you are going to insult someone else. Those that live in glass houses.

LET ME ADDRESS THIS NOW.TO: 6:52AM AND 11:59AM: WE ALL AGE. WE ALL THICKEN. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ME AND THE REST OF THE WORLD WAS I THICKENED AT 10 AND KEPT AI IT. KEVIN LYNN IS NOT FAT! THE GUY IS IN GOOD SHAPE, HE HAS A PERSONAL CHARM THAT STILL LEAVES WOMEN BREATHLESS AND IS A GOOD LOOKING GUY WHO CAN STILL DO TV, HIS SELF DEPRACATING HUMOR "A FACE FOR RADIO" NOTWITHSTANDING. LET'S FOCUS ON WHAT HE SAYS AND WHAT HE CONTRIBUTES THAN WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE. REMEMBER, TV ADDS POUNDS AND WHEN YOU DON'T WEAR A TIE, YOU LOOK WIDER. WITH MY WOMANIZING PAST, IF I HAD A TENTH OF KEVIN'S LOOKS, PAST OR PRESENT, I'D BE DEAD FROM EXHAUSTION!
AS FOR 11:29AM, SAYING SUE HENRY NEVER BELONGED ON THE AIRWAVES, LET'S SEE...YOU'D HAVE TO DEBATE TWO TV STATIONS, A 6 YEAR RUN AT WILK AS WELL AS A FEW AP BROADCAST AWARDS THROUGH THE YEARS TO VALIDATE YOUR POSITION. SHE'S THERE AND WE'RE NOT. THERE'S A REASON FOR THAT. AS FOR CORBETT, HIS JOURANLISM RECORD SPEAKS FOR ITSELF! AND AS FOR THE ABINGTON JOURNAL..BILL SCRANTON JUNIOR WON MORE THAN HIS FAIR SHARE OF AWARDS FOR THAT NEWSPAPER TOO. GOT ANY AWARDS FROM THE PRESS? I DON'T, DO YOU?

Kevin's appearance is fair game. He has taken shots at others appearances on his show. He consistently calls Limbaugh fat and I worked on your friend Dr. Leonardi's campaign (that is how I found your blog) and Kevin took some shots at him about supposedly dying his hair. So what is fair is fair.
And as far as getting heavier as you get older have you seen the good doctor lately. In the last year he has aged chronologically, but he looks about 10 years younger and fitter, so you can drop that aging excuse crap! You have a legit reason, Kevin, well Kevin has beefed up I have seen him in person and as far as good looking, please, he got women because he was on t.v..

I WAS ON TV IN THE MID 70s ON WVIA TV AND ALL I GOT WERE COME ONS FROM OLD LADIES IN BABUSHKAS!

because that is all who watched WVIA back then, come to think of it that is probably all who watches it now... LOL!

p.s.
Just curious, have you seen Dr. Leonardi? The guy is a freak of nature.

the issue of weight.
MY DAD USED TO HAVE A SAYING, "ENJOY YOUR FOOD BECAUSE YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO EAT SOMEDAY". AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST THE RAMBLINGS OF A MAN WHO GREW UP AS THE OLDEST CHILD OF IMMIGRANTS AND WHO LIVED DURING THE DEPRESSION. BUT I LATER FOUND OUT THAT IT WAS BECAUSE HE SAW SO MANY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES DIE OF CANCER. WHEN I WAS DIAGNOSED LAST SUMMER, I THOUGHT ABOUT THAT COMMENT A LOT. I WAS LUCKY, IT WAS CAUGHT IN TIME AND I HAD NO NEED FOR AN ACCESSORY. I SAW PEOPLE ON MY FLOOR WITHY FEEDING TUBES AND THOSE WHO HAD AN INABILITY TO ENJOY EVEN A HARD CANDY. WHILE I WAS MORBIDLY OBESE AND THE CANCER WAS A WEIGHT LOSS BLESSING, I STILL THINK OF MY FATHER'S SAYING. AND AS I AGE, I DON'T JUDGE PEOPLE ON HOW THEY LOOK BUT RATHER ON WHAT THEY CONTRIBUTE. HAVING A BODY BEAUTIFUL IS FINE BUT IF YOU DO IT AT THYE SACRIFICE OF GIVING UP THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE, LIKE A COLD BEER OR A LOADED UP DOG AT THE BALLPARK, WHAT'S THE POINT? AND YES, I'VE SEEN DR. LEONARDI AND HAVE COMPLIMENTED HIM ON HIS GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT. HE ALSO HAS NOT LOST THE ABILITY TO ENJOY GOOD FOOD WHILE ON HIS FITNESS PROGRAM. BUT LET'S KEEP ON MINDS ON WHAT PEOPLE SAY AND ADD TO THE DISCUSSION.

SORRY BUT THE WVIA TV AND FM AUDIENCE IS QUITE LARGE AND SOPHISTICATED.

17 Responses so far! Is that a record? Its still from a select small group made up of people who listen to WILK and/or follow LULAC.
Rush Limbaugh is a fat pig. Kevin is correct regardless of his own condition. Be careful, David, it sounds like you are getting a "man
crush" on the guy.

A reader but not a listener.

I like the overnights on WILK. Conspiracy theories, UFOs and tapes that played backwards say wierd things! Its the same in the daytime to me. I prefer listening late at night.

NOPE, JUST DEFENDING HIS RIGHT TO GROW GRACEFULLY OLD AND BROADCAST HIS OPINIONS.

 
At 5:08 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Just the right to grow old thats all that matters to those of us past their peak but hangin on and tryin to be productive. In the end Wilk for x number of hours per day allows local citizens the opportunity to air their opinions on the airwaves and that is a good thing.

 
At 9:02 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

so david is it okay that kevin lynn belittles others because of their appearance? like another poster said, kevin's appearance is fair game because of his words and actions. you can defend him all you want, but he is getting heavier and he has no right to critize others about their weigh. kevin rarely sticks to issues, he often runs down others, especially when he is losing a debate

 
At 1:29 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

If Kevin wouldnt stand next to Nancy he would look a lot thinner!
TV does add pounds, thats a fact.
Personal appearance should be off limits with the exception of Rush
who should never be forgiven for calling Michael Fox a faker! Take a fistful of pain killers and lead the GOP on into complete disaster fatso! I personally am a Mugwump.

 
At 6:06 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

one thing about the micheal j fox incident, fox admitted later on that he did not take his medication to make his tremors appear worse while he was testifying. so rush was in a way correct, the michael j fox, to emphasize his point, manipulated his meds for effect.
and kevin is porkin up... the camera may add 10, so explain the other 20 pounds... besides look at that gut....
