When you watch a sporting event, most people wouldn’t pay attention to the turf, or the field the game is played on. Meet Amy Fouty the athletic turf manager at Michigan State. After hearing hear story and what goes into maintaining the field at Spartan stadium, you will never watch a game againw without noticing the beautiful green grass that cushions the feet of every athlete that steps on it. Amy is an extraordinary woman, and this week’s WCSX “Woman Who Rocks”.
Spartan Stadium features a 120 by 53-yard patch of Kentucky Bluegrass, mowed to 7/8th inch. Even with Mother Nature constantly scolding Michigan with harsh winters and unpredictable weather, Amy and her staff make sure the field is primed for Spartans’ seven home games per year and occasional other events, including scrimmages.
Amy is passionate about every single blade of grass on the field, and very proud of Michigan State as an agricultural institution. She is inspirational, and her passion for her job and her colleagues is apparent. Listen to her story and you will hear why she rocks!
In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter from Turning Point Macomb. This week we talk about how Halloween and how some of us may think it is the greatest holiday ever, for some little kids, it’s plain terrfiying. So what do you do when your kid hates Halloween? Also, October is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”, a tattoo artist in Canada is helping women feel like women again with an amazing procedure.
Cyndy and I also discuss how more and more salons are banning children around the world. Some women think the idea is great, while others think it’s horrible.
