Flint Non-profit Agencies Feel Wrath Of IRS

More than 250 nonprofit organizations in our community have had their tax exempt status revoked by the IRS for a failure to file annual reports for three years in a row. The local groups include athletic boosters, ministries, and other charitable groups. It could cost you money too, because donations to these groups are no longer able to be used for a tax deduction.

Each month, HSLC will purchase thousands of pounds of food from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, and distribute it on a first-come, first-served basis.

When The Weatherball Is Red…

It's a good feeling to see the Weather Ball in Downtown Flint more red than blue these days.  After those record-breaking temperatures we had this past Sunday, the summer traditions in and around Flint don't seem as far away as they did when we were shoveling snow just a few weeks ago.

When we were at Back to the Bricks last summer, I noticed how much Downtown Flint has come back to life.  The beauty is returning with new buildings, new restaurants, renovations, (we won't mention the Genesee Towers), and the good ol' Weather Ball.

Flint-Area People Enjoy Game-Show Success [VIDEOS]

Since it's April Fools' Day, I thought I'd share something that happened last year on April 1st.  Davison resident, and longtime Cars 108 listener, Becky Jiminez, (a.k.a. "Pat") hit it big on "The Price Is Right".  If you didn't get a chance to see it, it's fun to watch, and the video is after the jump.

The other video is something my kids caught on the Game Show Network.  A Flint man, and student at U of M Flint, Chad Mosher, appeared on "Million Dollar Password" in 2008.  I don't remember this getting any publicity when it happened, (maybe I was living in a cave?) so here it is.

Game shows, and Wife Swap - the new future of Flint!
