About
This traditional, end-of-summer event began more than 40 years ago when WEBN treated the tri-state to a fireworks show in honor of the radio station’s 10th anniversary. The party, held annually at Sawyer Point on Sunday of Labor Day weekend, has grown into an all-day affair with music, food and family fun and entertainment all day. On both sides of the river, nearly a half-million people view the choreographed Rozzi’s Fireworks show while listening to the soundtrack on WEBN (102.7 FM) starting just after 9pm and lasting for about 30 minutes.

It’s a rainy and gloomy day here in and around the Ohio Valley. Any picnics today will be on the inside. Started my day off with a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with an Egg Sunnyside Up and side of the New and Improved (and it is) Jennie – O Turkey Bacon. Also had a cup of steaming hot Bigelow Green Tea along with the morning papers. Rainy on the outside and cozy on the inside! Happy Labor Day All!

Healthy Tips for Hot Dogs and Hamburgers

Another great article from the Diabetic Living On Line web site! You can read the entire article by clicking the link at the bottom of the post. Enjoy and have a great Labor Day Weekend!

Healthy Tips for Hot Dogs and Hamburgers

By Hope S. Warshaw, R.D., CDE; Photos by Scott Little
Yes, you can eat hot dogs and hamburgers on your diabetic diet. Just follow a few tips and tricks, and start enjoying these barbecue favorites guilt-free.

Social Staples

During the warmer months, your social calendar is likely to be sprinkled with cookouts, visits to street fairs, or pool parties where the grill is a-sizzle. And the main course, of course, is hot dogs, sausages, or hamburgers.

“Nothing tastes better than a hot dog downed during an inning of baseball or a brat at the Polish polka festival,” says Patti Urbanski, M.Ed., R.D., CDE, a dietitian and diabetes educator at the Duluth Family Practice Center in Minnesota who also has type 1 diabetes. Fortunately, you can relish these rituals without ruining your diabetes meal plan.

Where’s the Beef?

Hamburger meat, by government standards, is fresh or frozen ground beef without anything else added and can contain no more than 30 percent fat by weight. At the supermarket, hamburger meat is labeled with its percentage of lean meat and percentage of fat, such as 80/20 or 93/7. Not so at a friend’s barbecue or a ballpark grill. Here are some good rules of thumb:

— A 3-ounce serving of cooked meat is just right — there’s no need to pile on extra patties or order a large burger unless you share.

— Get your hamburgers cooked how you like them (as long as the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F for safety) because the fat content doesn’t differ much based on doneness.

— Spread condiments gingerly, but feel free to use a generous amount of this low-calorie flavor enhancer: mustard……

Featuring Cincinnati Bell WEBN Fireworks September 2, 2012 at Cincinnati’s beautiful Riverfront. Sawyer Point & Yeatman’s Cove at Bicentennial Commons.

P&G Riverfest at Sawyer Point opens at noon and runs until approximately 11 p.m. on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.

This year it’s September 2nd, 2012. Fireworks begin at 9:05 PM.
P&G Riverfest is Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky‘s big boom, the end of summer blowout that concludes with one of the largest fireworks displays in the Midwest – the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks.

This signature Cincinnati event began more than 30 years ago when WEBN treated the tri-state to a fireworks show in honor of the radio station’s 10th anniversary. The party at Sawyer Point, held annually on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, has grown into an all-day affair with music, food and family fun and entertainment all day (Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point is a no-alcohol zone for Riverfest).

Nearly a half-million people attend on both sides of the river. Highlights: the Ohio/Kentucky shout-off just before the fireworks, and WEBN’s soundtrack, choreographed with Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks.

WEBN Fireworks Train – 2012

Take a train ride from the Norwood Eagles Lodge to the riverfront and back to view the Cincinnati Bell WEBN Fireworks! Avoid all of the traffic and arrive in style with the LM&M Railroad for a night of fun!

Seating with the LM&M Railroad will be in one of our high capacity commuter coaches. Tickets are also availble for the Luxury or Dining Cars through the Cincinnati Dinner Train. These tickets will be for a second train leaving from a nearby location, and will follow the same route to the riverfront. Please view the Cincinnati Dinner Train website for additional information and to purchase tickets.
