John Harry in the Mornings on Y106.5!

Saturdays 9am - 2pm 

 It’s pretty cool to be doing mornings on the station where I first got started in radio!  I graduated from UW-Stevens Point in 2009, not sure how since I spent most of my time here at Y106.5.  Since my first go-round with Y106.5 I’ve worked radio in Minneapolis, Duluth, Madison, and Alaska(long story).  I love the Packers, Brewers, and Badgers.  When I’m not on the radio you’ll find me out on the lakes and rivers of Central WI or sitting at one of my favorite watering holes tipping back one of Wisconsin’s fine brewery products.  Hang out with me every morning from 6-10 on Today’s Best Country 106.5!

  • Woman Lights Roommate on Fire Because He Threw Out Her Spaghetti and Meatballs

    Clearwater police have arrested a woman they say doused her roommate with nail polish remover and set him on fire. Around 2:30 a.m., 33-year-old Melissa Dawn Sellers got into an argument with 42-year-old Carlos Ortiz Jr. at a home on the 300 block of Gunn Avenue. The two had been drinking, and Sellers doused Ortiz's upper body with nail polish remover and ignited with him a lighter or cigarette, police said.

    According to Ortiz's friend and witness, Ines Causevic, Sellers was angry at Ortiz because he had thrown out her spaghetti and meatballs. "She was setting little objects on fire, then that turned into pouring nail polish remover all over him, and then all of a sudden, the lighter sparked and he lit on fire," said Causevic. Causevic said she threw water on Ortiz and tore his shirt off, trying to put out the fire. "When he got up, his face was like melting off, it was pink and sore," said Causevic. "His lips were burning." Ortiz was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition with burns to his face, chest and shoulders.

    Sellers left the scene before police arrived, but returned later from her stepfather's home nearby and was arrested, police said. She was charged with aggravated battery. In an earlier news release, police said Sellers had been charged with attempted murder due to the extent of Ortiz's injuries.

    Neighbors and friends of Ortiz said they are sickened by the incident. They said Ortiz was a good guy who helped people out and let Sellers move in because she had been evicted. "That's my friend and I can't imagine such a horrible thing, because he didn't deserve that," said Katherine Muds. "He would never hurt anybody." Sellers has prior arrests for battery and robbery.

  • Candy Corn. Deep Fried.

    There is nothing natural or healthy about candy corn. Need proof? Well, the ingredients include sugar, corn syrup, confectioner's glaze, and dextrose ... as well as yellow #6 and red #3. Not quite an organic spinach salad there. Read More
  • Turn your Ice Machine into a Candy Dispenser!

    We can all agree that frozen candy totally tops frozen water. Deric Peace submitted an image of his candy-filled ice maker to Reddit on Tuesday, which quickly got him upvoted to the front page of the website. Today he delivered with a video of his sugary, modified freezer in action. The idea is so simple and amazing that we'll even forgive Peace for the vertical video. Just don't forget to shut off your ice maker.
