Capt. Richard Phillips is in Grand Rapids today.

Phillips was captain of the MV Maersk Alabama during its hijacking by Somali pirates in April 2009; and his heroics were chronicled in the Oscar-nominated 2013 film "Captain Phillips" starring Tom Hanks.

Hawaii Kings Tour: Fore! [Video]

Just another day in paradise, or rather, Hawaii.

I am currently on a 13-day group tour with about three dozen 100.5 The River listeners, trekking across Hawaii with YMT Vacations. We are staying on Maui.

On Thursday, we hit the links at Royal Kāʻanapali Golf Club. I golfed a round with Bob and Jane Czerew, Char and Skip Tomkins and Tom Brechtimg.

Then, we had a wonderful dinner and show at the Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel , where we're staying in Kāʻanapali.

Today, we head for the Big Island, Hawai'i, and Kona.
