A YMCA's decision to cancel news channels has the local Y talking

The buzz around the Door County YMCA is about another Y's drastic decision. The Stevens Point YMCA has blocked cable news channels from TV sets in the workout rooms.  That decision came early this month after one member berated another over a cable news program.  Door County YMCA President and CEO Tom Beernsten says such behavior hasn't happened in Sturgeon Bay.  He says, however, Door County Y staff are always watching out for inappropriate language and actions.



Some private health clubs in Minnesota faced similar problems with heated discussions between members because of what was on TV.  So they've also blocked only the all-news channels at their businesses.
