Safe Waters and 'Savings Sunday'
Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Summer in coastal Virginia means time spent along the water, but a little-known bacteria that thrives in brackish, coastal waters could put you and your family at risk. Today's guest host, Joe Flanagan, will learn about the risks posed by Vibrio vulnificus, a bacteria found in areas with a mixture of fresh and saltwater, such as at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay — that thrives in warmer temperatures. We'll hear a first-hand account from one Chesapeake Bay waterman that nearly lost his life to Vibriosis! And later, the original "frugal chick," Laura Oliver drops in with her favorite opportunities for big summer savings!

Today's Guests:
Dr. Wirt Cross - Surgeon at Riverside Surgical Specialists
Doug Jenkins, Sr - Local waterman that overcame Vibriosis
Laura Oliver - Coupon blogger
