John
On Tuesday morning, October 20, one of your guests talked about finding the recipes from Mavrakos candy company and I'm thinking he said that they are now making the candies. I've searched the channels website and can not find anything about the interview. I absolutely loved their candy and if it's once again being made, I'd like to know what company it is that's making it and where they are located.

Thanks so much
Judy

When we went into Iraq John was telling us during the news that Jane Fonda had said that the Iraquis may not welcome us. Few of us care what Jane Fonda may be thinking. This appears to have been a poor attempt to manipulate public opinion, not news. Thousands have lost their lives in this war. We desirve the real story.

Hi John. I met you a few months back at the Bel-Clair fairgrounds and you are
as nice in person as you are on T.V. I really love watching Fox 2 News in the
Morning and all the people that bring it to us. I do have difficulty understanding
the repetitive nature of the broadcast. Especially when you say a segment is
coming up next and 15 minutes and a commercial later, I still haven't
seen it. I would expect you to lead off with the subject after saying
"coming up next" and that is rarely the case. Keep up the good work and
I will continue to faithfully watch every morning and please work on improving the timing of the "coming up next" segments.

Thanks

Morning John, My Wife and I were watching Fox 2 news this a.m. and were touched by your story pertaining to Adults without banking accounts in the St. Louis metropolitan area. As indicated on the show there are 31% of all African Americans in this area without banking account vs. 1.1% White Americans. This totally illustrates there is a lack of knowledge and/or trust with the banking system for the African American community. In addition my wife and I feel that it was totally disrespectful for you to blatantly dissassociate yourself from the St. Louis African American people when you referred to them as "These People". Yes there are many folks/families in this area who don't own a banking account. But what are we doing to uplift the community as opposed to reporting that there is a problem. Vice Chairman of FDIC Martin Gruenberg said it best that there will be consequences for all when the overall wellbeing of people are affected.

Your are one of the FEW guys in ST Louis TV that rarely mis-pronounces a word. It's Plantar Wart, not Plantar's. It's singular my brother. I know you'd want to know!

Have a great Christmas John, always watching!

I guess I will pick you to get this off my chest! Now Fox2 is going to add another hour, until 10 am. Wow, have you ever played back your news cast from 5am until 9am and then again at noon, and what the heck lets add the 5pm till 6:30pm and the 9pm till 10:30pm. Just pay close attention to the repetition, a person could repeat it word for word! I have to say back in the day channel 2 was my only station, now just to not hear the same news items over and over, I have to go to CBS from 7am to 9am. Nothing repeated there. So keep repeating yourselves and more folks will get bored and go to other stations as well.

John, you are the only reason I watch Fox 2 News. You always report a little extra. I am so glad you left Channel 5 years ago for Channel 2.

If you ever leave St Louis or die, I will move to Indianapolis and sell wristwatches or something stupid to symbolize a waste of time Hoosier existence.

Love you Man! Chilt
