Frivolous Sunday news:
At last, a question to the Answer Man in the Belleville News-Democrat that caught our eye.
"How old is KSDK meteorologist, Cindy Preszler?"
Some years back she came to Collinsville's Italian Fest and did her weather forecast from the corner of Main and Seminary. What I remember most was working the souvenir stand and getting a t-shirt ready for the Fest chairman to present to her. One of Preszler's staff persons told us that she needed the smallest size we had as she "is very very tiny."
Dale has often mentioned how well she uses her hands and body language when she describes the weather maps. So, we've been somewhat curious about her.
The BND's Answer Man, Roger Schlueter did some investigative journalism and determined that the best evidence for Preszler's age points to 49.
49! I'd never have guessed anything near that. But yearbooks don't lie.
