THE WEEKEND IS JUST ABOUT HERE, and I've got a few ideas to make it a fun one...

THIS SATURDAY AT LOCK 3 PARK in downtown Akron, various local police departments will compete in a K-9 Challenge.  Police K-9 units will compete in Olympic style events.  This starts at 10am, but from 9am to 11am, $5 will get you in to a pancake breakfast with all proceeds going to the Akron K-9 unit.

TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT, The Funny Stop Comedy Club in Cuyahoga Falls presents headliner Thomas Dale.  Tonight is WKDD night with your host Keith Kennedy.  On Friday and Saturday, two shows each night at 8pm and 10:30pm.  Get information at www.funnystop.com.

JOHNNY CASH FANS WILL LOVE "Ring Of Fire", a live show featuring the music of the Man In Black.  This show runs through May 25 at the Actors Summit at Greystone Hall in downtown Akron.  Info is available at www.actorssummit.org.

MEANWHILE, THE ADULT COMEDY "Don't Dress For Dinner" will close this Sunday at The Weathervane Playhouse in the valley.  Tickets and information at www.weathervaneplayhouse.com.

FINALLY, THE CLEVELAND INDIANS ARE HOME this weekend for a three series with the Oakland Athletics at Progressive Field.  Get tickets at the gate (plenty available) or on line at www.indians.com

JOIN ME TOMORROW MORNING AT 9am on 640 WHLO.  Stay Dry...JIM
