End-of-the-year teacher gifts are a wonderful way to thank someone who has spent time molding your child, our future leaders, and have influenced a growing generation of thinkers. Year after year, I'd have my kids write a thank you note to their teacher, highlighting some of their favorite class memories, adding a gift card for the movies or something fun for their summer vacation. Some year's letters were better than others, as some teachers were a better fit than others. Still, regardless of the personality differences, I always found the teachers in my kids upbringing to be genuine about education, and in growing young minds. They were always on task, and lead well by the Principal, with rules in place that allowed progression, support and structure. I hope you can say that about the schools in you area. I hope you can say that about your radio station, too.

CPSC Summer Safety Tips
- When cooking outdoors with a gas grill, check the air tubes that lead into the burner for any blockage from insects, spiders, or food grease. Check grill hoses for cracking, brittleness, holes, and leaks. Make sure there are no sharp bends in the hose or tubing. If you ever detect a leak, immediately turn off the gas at the tank and don't attempt to light the grill until the leak is fixed. Newer grills and propane tanks have improved safety devices to prevent gas leaks.
- Make sure your home playground is safe. Falls cause 60 percent of playground injuries, so having a safe surface is critical. Concrete, asphalt or packed dirt surfaces are too hard. Use at least 9 inches of wood chips or mulch.
- Use softer-than standard baseballs, safety-release bases and batting helmets with face guards to reduce baseball-related injuries to children.
