The Daily Brief




(Click Here for the Central Calendar)




(Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger)

High pressure to our east will make for a generally sunny day. Heat and moisture will be an issue. Some passing impulses of energy by the mid-afternoon could produce a popup thunderstorm. High temperature near 90. Winds south at 5-11 mph. Rainfall between .1-.25" with higher amounts where storms occur.




I'd like to thank my boss, Glenn Ruhe, and the housing custodians for my send off and generous gift. Glenn is an outstanding boss who deserves recognition for the fantastic job he does. I will miss each one of my co-workers; they are a bunch of good people who work hard to maintain Kutztown dormitories in great condition. My 17 years have seen many changes at Kutztown. I wish my co-workers the best. Thank you all.
