                         ugene Cornelius and his wife of three years welcomed a baby boy into the world on Saturday morning. The couple had been planning to have children since they moved into their plush Ashwaubenon home on wood lane some two and one half years ago. The Cornelius couple who fit right in immediately after moving into the upscale neighborhood are friends with all the neighbors and are on a first name basis with all of them. After learning of the birth, it became clear to many of the neighbors just what Eugene AKA "Blackie" was dong up so late in the garage every night. The neighbor next to the garage : "I wondered what he was building in that garage every night, I'm sure now it was a crib for his son."

The baby arrived on Saturday morning and the couple has named him Lawson Michael Lee Cornelius. At the time of his birth he weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz. and was 21 inches long.

Cornelius had worked for Triangle distributing until the pregnancy began but

then became a news reporter for WTMJ TV in Milwaukee after seeing what it costs to have and raise a child. Cornelius says that it costs more to work in the largest city in Wisconsin but the pay makes up for it and then some. Side benefits account for a constant supply of beer from the many stories he does on breweries. Cornelius says that he is somewhat disappointed that the broadcasts do not reach the Green Bay area where his family can see them but hopes that some day he might get good enough to get a job at a Green Bay station.

With printing issues resolved hopefully by the end of this week, Brandon Pickett says that calendars could be delivered as early as the beginning of next week after finishing the printing over the next weekend.

Pickett says that everything was on schedule for a Christmas eve delivery if the printing had not gone bad during production. Cartridges supplying toner for the printer ran out and the replacement cartridges were bad when installed. The supplier is taking them back this week and supplying a different make of cartridge as the previous ones had a history of being defective according to the printer representative. Every effort will be made to get a calendar to everyone on the list by the end of next week.

Most people may not be affected by this story but there are a couple of things you should know if you are receiving signals over the air. First off the digital transition is set to go off as scheduled on February 17th and if you are still receiving the analog broadcasts and have not purchased a converter or a digital TV you are going to go dark on the 18th. There is still time to purchase equipment to make your analog set keep going after the transition.

Up to this point a UHF antenna was all you needed to receive all the digital channels in Green Bay. That will all change on February 18th, most people don't know that Ch 11 is changing frequencies on the 18th and if you are receiving the Fox affiliate off the air now you will be required to reprogram your receiver to receive digital Ch11 on it's new home, Ch 11. Right now 11 is broadcasting digitally on UHF Ch 51. The station is moving their digital signal back to it's original frequency on Ch 11. This is the only station which is doing so therefore you will still need your VHF antenna to receive it. All the other Green Bay stations will remain on their new UHF channel assignments.  That's all the news that is news, see ya.
