Dave Mack fell in love with radio at an early age, and after 30 years the affair continues. His radio career has taken him to some great cities but his home has been in Alabama since 1994. Dave was introduced to Alabama in a unique way while attending church at Goshen United Methodist Church on Palm Sunday 1994 when a tornado hit the church killing more than 20 and injuring many more, including Dave. Having an up close and personal experience with Severe weather, Dave has provided long form severe weather coverage on several stations and is involved with public speaking about severe weather preparedness. Dave Mack has lived a unique life that includes stand up comedy as well as hosting his own regional television show, and most recently added "Feature Film Actor" to his resume having co-starred in the feature film "Prodigal". Dave is scheduled to star in two additional feature films in 2012. Dave and his wife LaDonna (a lifelong Alabama resident) have 4 children and multiple pets including Dave's special friend....his chihuahua "Tanner".
Ohio families receiving food stamps could get an unwelcome surprise come January: $50 less every month in assistance.
For the 869,000 households enrolled in the program for the poorest Ohioans, that could amount to about $520 million annually out of the grocery budgets.
Because of the way the federal government calculates utility expenses for people receiving the benefit, a mild winter nationwide last year, and a lower price for natural gas, many families could experience a significant cut in aid, those familiar with the program say.
Recipients should get a letter from the state Department of Job and Family Services this month explaining the change, said Ben Johnson, a spokesman for the agency.
