On this episode of Discover Janesville with Yuri Rashkin:


Jaysen Jorgensen is a mild-mannered insurance agent by day, and a community booster by night.  Actually, Jaysen is a community booster 24 hours a day.  He stopped by the Janesville Community Radio studio to talk about the different projects where he is involved, working to make Janesville a better place to work and play.  Jaysen also shared his experience being tased for a good cause at 2013 National Night Out celebration, why he rides for causes and why he believes the goals of Project 16:49 can be achieved.


Melissa Atkins Wardy stopped by the studio to talk about her website, book and business centered on helping parents embrace the unique gender nature of their child.  What began as a business selling t-shirts that promote girls in science and medicine, Melissa is now running a popular blog called "Pigtail Pals and Ballcap Buddies" and has written a book called "Redefining Girly".


Our resident expert Dan Hartung, stopped in to talk about what it takes to get noticed on Facebook, and how having more fans can cause a Facebook page to become less visible.  Following our discussion on the pitfalls of the social media behemoth, we discussed the economic outlook in Janesville, and what closure of JC Penney means.  We concluded our conversation by talking about a sad streak of violence and crime that made local, national and international news in recent days, and what may be some of its root causes.  

Be in the know.  Discover Janesville.
