Welcome to the "Producer's Corner" where you'll find news and notes from Morning Show Producer Scott Fitzgerald.
You’ve put answering it thinking there’s still plenty of time. Now you’re at the point where you have to find a solution. This is Scott Fitzgerald and what am I talking about? How are we going to pay for Christmas this year.
For those serving on active duty in the military (even you DoD civilian contractors) I may have the solution. A Navy Federal gorewards credit card. With a Navy Federal GoRewards credit card you earn points for travel, gift cards or even merchandise (which means more Christmas presents for this year or even next). But here’s what separates Navy Federal from the others. If you sign on now and spend $1,000 Navy Federal Credit Union will GIVE you 15,000 additional points!
For those serving our military why Navy Federal? Because they’ve been serving the military for 80 years now and have amassed over 4 million members (to include yours truly). Any member of ANY branch is eligible for membership, but you have to join while on active duty.
You can visit navyfederal.org or (for our neighbors near Ft. Knox) you can visit the local branch NEAR Ft. Knox at 137 E. Lincoln Trail Boulevard in Radcliff/
Navy Federal is financially solid and Federally insured by the NCUA.

New Strain of Norovirus - the Winter Vomiting Bug - on the Rise. A new norovirus strain was detected last year in Australia and has reached the United States. Although the flu is on everyone’s minds this season, the winter vomiting bug, or the norovirus, is making its rounds. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the norovirus causes about 70,000 hospitalizations and 800 deaths each year, mostly in young children and the elderly. Some of the virus' common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach pains. The CDC points out that the norovirus is often referred to as the stomach flu, but it is unrelated to influenza. So far, there have not been any reports of the norovirus in Londonderry, according to Londonderry Health Director Richard Canuel. A new norovirus strain, GII.4 Sydney, was detected last year in Australia. The strain hit the U.K. and sickened over a million people. It has now reached the United States and this new strain appears to be taking over. Of norovirus cases reported from September to December, 54 percent have been identified as GII.4 Sydney, according to recently released data. How difficult is this new strain of norovirus to control? What are the best ways to prevent it? What should you do if ou have it? Family Practitioner at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Dr. Jelani Ingram joins Tony and Cindi.
President Barack Obama says "now is the time" to fix broken immigration laws. And he says Congress is showing "a genuine desire to get this done soon." The President applauded a rare show of bipartisanship between the White House and Senate lawmakers on basic plans for putting millions of illegal immigrants on a pathway to citizenship and tightening security at the borders. But mindful of previous immigrations efforts that have failed, Obama warned that the debate would become more difficult as it gets closer to a conclusion. Both the White House and Senate proposals still lack key details. And potential roadblocks are already emerging, even before a Senate measure can be debated, approved and sent to the Republican-controlled House where opposition is likely to be stronger. Is the President's plan a viable one? With Tony is Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies and the author of "How Barack Obama is Transforming America Through Immigration" Mark Krikorian
