     September has been designated National Emergency Preparedness
month, a month set aside to remind residents of personal responsibility
in the event of an emergency.   Those emergencies could include
severe weather, summer or winter,  fires or hazardous material spills,
forcing people from their homes or businesses.
     Outagamie county Emergency Management Interim Director
Christina Muller recommends residents develop plans of action in
case a plan has to be implemented.
     That includes communication among family members, emergency kits
of personal necessities, and what to do if an emergency strikes.
     Muller discusses plans in an Assignment Fox Cities, in the process
of being produced.  Although September is designated as a preparedness
month, the same rationale applies year-round.

     Toward the end of last year's Green Bay Packers season, I produced an
Assignment Fox Cities on Outagamie County Judge John Des Jardins
being a member of the "chain gang." 
     Well, the judge is at it again, I believe for his 14th season, when the
Packers take-on the Kansas City Chiefs at Lambeau Field tonight.
     If you heard the story online in January, you may have found it interesting,
humorous, and perhaps would like to hear it again.  If you haven't  heard
the judge's account of what it's like working the sidelines of Packers'
home games, it's posted on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault
and Assignment Fox Cities.
     The judge is short in stature.  What's it like standing among the
"giants" of the NFL?    Get the inside story from the judge.

Assignment Fox Cities

Tuesday, Aug, 19 2014

   All of us are or should be aware of Amber Alert, issued when a child is
missing or abducted.  Now we have Silver Alert, activated when an adult
wanders off.
   The Wisconsin legislature approved the Silver Alert program in April,
Governor Scott Walker signed the measure on August 1st.
   In our current Assignment Fox Cities program, Kim Kinner, executive
director of the Alzheimer's Association of Greater Wisconsin Chapter,
details the Silver Alert program.   For one thing, have a current photo
of your loved one so police and others, searching, can identify them
if they wander off.
    You'll find the program on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault.
It's good information in case you need it.

Assignment Fox Cities

     Dozens of cities across America are planning to hold Walk Like MADD
events in late September.  Among them is Appleton, the first time the event
will be held here.
     This 5K walk is  a  fund-raiser so Mothers Against Drunk Driving in
Wisconsin can continue its work.  
     Andrew and Melissa Collins of Appleton are helping to organize the
event, held at Fox Cities Stadium.   Andrew has a vested interest in making
sure the walk is a success;  he was hit by a drunken driver in 2007 while
living in Delaware.
     Walk Like MADD Appleton 2014 is the subject of an Assignment Fox
Cities, heard on WHBY Tuesday, August 12th, at 6:45 a.m., 12:45 p.m.
and 5:45 p.m.   It will appear on our website too, whby.com, under Audio
Vault and Assignment Fox Cities.
     You can enter the walk online at Walk Like MADD/Appleton.

Assignment Fox Cities

Tuesday, Aug, 5 2014

     Arnie Nettekoven spent 30 years on the Appleton police department, starting
in 1960.   Since retiring in 1990, Nettekoven still does police work of sorts.   He's
the custodian of the agency's museum, housed in the lower level of the police
department.
     When you visit the museum you'll witness how officers performed their duties
for many decades.   You'll see weapons police used in protecting communities,
the uniforms they wore, an old police "call box" found on many street corners,
a hand-held radar detector, and a polygraph machine.
     Nettekoven is proud of a number of items housed there, including lots of police
badges and patches, plus an extradition order signed by then-New York Governor
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, ordering a suspect's return to Appleton.
     You'll find the story on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault and Assignment
Fox Cities.  You'll also find photos of the items on our website under photo galleries.
     Police offer tours of the museum.  Just call ahead.
