Max Armstrong talks about obesity, lack of hay and people sickened at Milwaukee Buck's party. (audio)

Did you happen to catch that report that said obesity is more of a rural problem than an urban one? This came from the British Journal Nature. It says rural residents tend to have lower income and less access to gyms and that healthy food costs more.

One producer in northern Illinois reported that supplies of old crop hay are gone. Hay fields are barely 10 inches tall in northern Illinois. He’s had 8 inches of rain this month.

A group of people are claiming their drinks were drugged at a Milwaukee Buck’s party. A woman told TV station she drank two Moscow Mules over a two-hour period and she started seeing double. She said her friend experienced the same thing. Altogether, a half dozen people were sickened.

Officials at Mason High School in Ohio held focus group meetings over a year and determined school will no longer recognize valedictorian and salutatorian. It’s said the move will allow students to explore more opportunities of interest to them.
