We’re approaching two starkly different annual events here in Evansville, the YMCA Half Marathon and the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival.

This week’s segment is about on extremes in health and fitness. As you’ll hear in today’s interviews, there appears to be a growing interest in high-intensity, nearly punishing exercise.

First, we’ll take a trip to a Cross fit gym, or “box” as they’re called, to hear about a workout that’s gaining speed, here and around the world.

City Council votes 9-0 in favor of Convention Hotel

Oct 1, 2013

  The downtown convention hotel subsidy saga has finally come to a theatrical finale.

Last night, City Council members unanimously voted in favor of the plan, and their tone was unusually light-hearted.

From the very start of last-night’s meeting, the mood was optimistic across all sides of the room, a far cry from earlier City Council meetings.

City Council President Connie Robinson opened the meeting with laughter, saying "this is a night of democracy."

And Councilman Jonathan Weaver’s vote was no ordinary “aye”, but a "hell yeah."
