Mary Beth's BIO
Although Mary Beth grew up in Detroit, it is Toledo that feels like home, especially since she and her husband, Terry, are raising their family here. Their children, Tara, Derek and Cullin were all born here and are all in school now. With grade school, high school and college tuitions all looming, it's no wonder Mary Beth looks forward to many more years working on 101.5 the River. "Miles to go before I sleep!"
Rick Woodell was born and raised in Macon, Georgia, attended the community college there and eventually the University of Georgia before embarking on a 38 year broadcasting career. Rick has worked in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Texas and been a part of the programming of radio stations in Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado and California.
Before moving to Toledo, Rick was a highly rated morning show host in Greenville, South Carolina for 15 years and was co-host of "Talk of the Town," a 30 minute television travel show for Charter Communications that covered Georgia, North and South Carolina. Rick and his wife Carla moved to Toledo so he could rekindle his love for morning radio.
Rick and Carla have 4 "kids." One is Siamese...Cyan, 6 pounds of furry fury, Grayson, a loveable Gray stray from the Humane society, Frank a mini Dachshund rescue and the latest addition, Bill Blitzen, a rescued Greyhound.. Rick's son, Alex, graduated college in South Carolina and is continuing his education at the Medical College of South Carolina-Charleston.
Rick's continued love for charity work and civic pride keeps him active in the community.
"We've been here for over 7 years now. As Carla and I continue to travel the area, we're amazed at the eagerness of people to welcome us Southerners. We feel like actual Mid- westerners now! We really feel at home."
Not being a golfer, Rick doesn't really understand all the hoopla, but Mary Beth knows all too well about the sport. Here are some suggestions from Rick to Mary Beth to take home!

Repurposing Ideas: 5 New Uses For Golf Balls
You can use the brightly colored golf balls (like the ones from the a miniature golf course) to fill a vase or hurricane lamp. It's a great way to add some color to a dull room's decor. And don't worry, you can always take them out easily the next time you feel like swinging the golf club.
A bunch of golf balls, a hot glue gun and some random crafting accessories can provide hours of fun for kids to make golf ball animals. Here are some instructions on how to make a dog that resembles a beloved comic strip critter, but the sky is the limit if you are a more creative-minded type.
GOLF BALL SNOWMEN
With the holidays rapidly approaching, you can make some snowman ornaments with white golf balls. Just glue them together, either two or three high. Decorate their coal faces with a magic marker and you can add small accessories with fabric scraps like a hat or scarf for some winter fun. You can also add personalized touches depending on the recipient, including a small surfboard or baseball bat.
EMERGENCY SINK PLUG
Can't find the plug? You can block the drain of most household sinks with a golf ball because the drain pipe is usually the same diameter. Just place the golf ball in your drain and it will hold the water back. (But first make sure the drain is smaller than the ball; you don't want to explain to a plumber why there is a golf ball stuck in your drain!)
Madigan Made took a bunch of golf balls, an old frame and some metallic spray paint to make this really cool wall art. The combination of the shininess and the texture of the sporting goods make an interesting statement piece.
