    Springfield, Mo – (4/19/17) Jack Flaherty may be the eighth ranked prospect in the St. Louis Cardinals system, but in Springfield he’s locked in as the number one starter. Heading into Monday’s game the Springfield Cardinals had lost three of the first four games of their home stand, and were sitting at a mediocre 5-5 record. They did what teams do when they have a rough patch: They hand the ball to their ace and trust him to stop the bleeding.

    FoxNews.com - (4/19/17) Netflix isn't too worried about competition from fellow streaming services.  The company's CEO said Netflix's biggest competition is actually sleep. "You know, think about it, when you watch a show from Netflix and you get addicted to it, you stay up late at night. We’re competing with sleep, on the margin. And so, it’s a very large pool of time," Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said during an earnings call, according to The Guardian.

    I joined the FOX 5 team in September of 2012 as the start of a budding news and weather team. Weather has been my passion from the age of 5 when I witnessed a tornado touch down not far from my home in Colorado Springs. Since then, I have always been fascinated with forecasting, weather patterns, and especially extreme weather, and understanding why it happens.
