Kate & Kurt 2011 The Year in Review

Kate & Kurt 2011

Well as 2011 comes to an end I just want to say thank you to everyone that contributed to the Kate & Kurt show. I never thought it would last this long, but I look forward to 2012 as the show is going to keep improving. I would like to thank Chris Paradiso for making this all possible but I would especially like to thank my very special friend, Kate Pisciotta who dedicates countless hours every week to filming, editing, and coming up with ideas for the show and maintaining the MyStaffordSprings website anf Facebook pages. Check out the amazing video below that she put together highlighting our shows from 2011. Enjoy and we’ll see you next year!


Kate & Kurt Glenville Edition

This week’s show had Kate and I hiking through the woods with Dr. Dutton on Furnace Avenue near Glenville pond. We got a great history lesson and got drenched in the process. More Stafford trivia, the weather with Tocka, Dance Break with Hillary, and all your local news. Also, a shout out to my friend Craig Jabobsen and his wife Lisa on the 20th wedding anniversary. Check it out below.

This week Rick Casagrande was gracious enough to invite me up to Casagrande Motorsports to check out there new Limited Late Model car that will be racing at Stafford Motor Speedway this season. I caught up with Cory Casagrande while I was up there and he answered a few questions for me. I also stopped by Bosco’s Market & Deli to get a sponsor’s perspective on things. Local business owners should seriously consider sponsoring a local driver here in Stafford.

Life Insurance



Is your family properly protected against your untimely death? It is not a pleasant subject but it is a necessary one to discuss. Everybody’s situation is different, people have different family types, mortgages, assets, income, or just different philosophies and preferences. In some cases life insurance can even be used as an investment vehicle. What my job is, and I do it well, is to sit down with each individual or family and work with them to figure out what’s in their best interest. Consultations are always FREE. Please give me a call, it would be my pleasure to sit down with and help you find a way, that fits in your budget, to give you the peace of mind of knowing your loved ones will be taken care of in the event of an untimely death. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you…Kurt (860)458-9366
