This morning Bayley Brown, KHUM's soon to be midday person is traveling across the country and will be here soon. She and her family spent the night in Green River Wyoming. There was this really cool mountain right behind the hotel and she set me a picture of it. Kind of reminds me of Close Encounters.
Cliff Berkowitz / Tuesday, Sept. 15 @ 9:23 a.m. / Medical Breakthrough
I recently hear about a new breakthrough aid for people who are red/green color deficient. They are glasses that create a spectral notch between red and green allowing the red and green cones in the eye to see the colors separately. And while it takes some time for the visual cortex to make sense of the new data it is getting, these new glasses have been effective for about 80% of those affected by this. My youngest son, Michael is red/green color deficient. I just received a pair of these glasses to try with him this weekend. And while he only noticed a slight improvement when he put them on, the difference was dramatic when he took them off 2 hours later.
I will be speaking with the co-founder of EnChroma, the company that makes these devices tomorrow morning in the 9am hour.

We also talked about the Eureka Natural Foods Waterfront Run and Walk coming up on the 27th.

Our newest member of the KHUM family continues her journey west. This morning she called from Kansas. They expect to cross into Colorado later today. The goal once again today is Denver. She and her folks didn't make it that far yesterday. I thought that was a rather lofty goal. Bayley pictured here earlier this morning in a field in Kansas with her dog, Leonidas.

Well Bayley and family are really moving! We just got a call from her from St. Louis, Missouri. They are stopping for lunch and hitting the road again. Bayley snapped a good picture of the Mississippi River as they crossed into St. Louis. Also a great pic of her dog Leonidas and her mom Beth. (Dad, Dusty not pictured here).

As Bayley Brown, KHUM's soon to be Midday person travels across the country with her folks and her faithful companion Leonidas (her dog), she has promised to call in with reports from the road. This morning she made it to the Illinois portion of Route 66. She said her goal is to make it all the way to Denver by tonight. That is ambitious goal. All of us here at KHUM wish her and her family the best as they wend their way across the country to Humboldt.
