Goodie Award Wednesday

One Good Deed

Good Morning Mother Lode!

Time to recognize good deed here at home with the KKBN Goodie Award.   Brought to you week by JS WEST Ace Hardware.   Congratulations to Terry Ayres!  Terry was nominated by for his good deed of service to his community!  Read the letter below.

Terry has been a volunteer firefighter for  the Tuolumne County Fire Department, Station 57 for 15 years. He is very dedicated and in 15 years of service has missed very few fire call or medical emergency.
Terry Works for Kamps Propane in Merced during the day commuting two hours to work each direction, but as soon as he is home he is totally dedicated to his volunteer work and can spend up to 8 hours fighting fire before going home, taking a shower and commuting back to work.
I feel that if anyone deserves volunteer of the week, Terry Ayres does.

If you know someone deserving of the KKBN Goodie Of The Week Award, nominate them today!  Send us an email telling why the should win.  Please include a phone number.  Thanks and Congratulation again to this week’s KKBN Goodie of The Week Terry Ayres.

Two Questions, Two Links


Two things are probably on your mind this morning due the inclement weather.  Traffic and Schools.  How will the roads be?  Will the kids be going to school?  That of course leads to other questions.

If the schools are delayed, how will I get them to school?

Will my kids bus be running?

Will I be late for work?

Should I even go to work today?

Should I call in?

Do I need chains?

I don’t have a four wheel drive, do I know someone that can swing by and pick me up?

What should I wear?

Should I take my lunch?

Is Big Joe really that good looking?

Okay, you get the point.  To help you this morning with all those questions…with the exception of the last one of course.  Here are two links to start your day.

School Delays


Hard Freeze Tuesday!

Good Morning Mother Lode!

Yesterday was one of the worst days for weather and traffic issues in the Mother Lode in years!  But it looks like we’re in store for more ” fun” this morning with an overnight hard freeze.  If it was wet yesterday, it’s ice this morning.  Join us live at 5am this morning for KKBN Information Updates and the Latest in school delays and closures.

Here’s a quick video on yesterday’s storm from our friends at Go Gold Country.
