Dr. Mark Newton, who is the chief of ER at Doctors Hospital, will be with us at 6:10 and 7:40 to talk about swine flu. We're seeing more cases of it locally in McDuffie and Aiken counties, so Dr. Newton will address some of the concerns and questions about it.
Thursday is the official end (the 88th day) of 88.3 WAFJ's 88 Days of Summer. We're giving away a GIANT stack of CD's, so listen at 7:10 to find out how to win.
We wanted to talk to someone from the Centers for Disease Control concerning the new wave of swine flu. Apparently, they're overwhelmed with interview requests and passed along a website instead. So, this may answer your questions about swine flu: http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/qa.htm.

Renee Clark of North Augusta correctly guessed that the Cheapie of the Week is Uncle Ben's Country Inn Rice (6 ounce box). It is on sale as a "Buy 1, Get 1 Free" special at Publix (through Tuesday 8/25), so you get 2 boxes for $1.49. Use the printable $1 off 2 products coupon to get two boxes of rice for $.49 plus tax.
