Steve Allen is our guest tonight. On January 8, 2008, Stephenville gained national media attention when dozens of residents reported observations of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Several residents described the crafts as the size of a football field, while others said they were nearly a mile long, similar to the historic Arizona mass sighting of March 13, 1997. Some observers reported military aircraft pursuing the objects. CNN's Larry King covered the news story in the days following the incident, and according to Steve Allen, a private pilot who witnessed the UFO, the object was travelling at a high rate of speed which supposedly reached 3,000 feet in the air. Allen said it was "About a half a mile wide and about a mile long. It was humongous, whatever it was". (wikipedia) The History Channel show UFO Hunters featured a story about the UFO sightings. "In mid January, 2008 reports of a mass UFO sighting over Stephenville, Texas began to make national news. Much like the Phoenix Lights Case of 1997, the mysterious lights appearing in the Texas sky were seen by multiple witnesses including police officers. However, much of the interest was created by the proximity of the sightings to President Bush’s Texas ranch. Although the military initially stated that there were no jets flying in the area that night, they later recanted and stated that a training flight of 10 fighters was actually in the skies. The incident inspired one of the largest MUFON investigations to date and yielded radar information that is considered by many to confirm that an unknown object was flying over Texas. The incident was featured in a number of national news stories and by several television shows". (M. Lauck) The full report of this case is at http://www.ufocasebook.com/pdf/mufonstephenvilleradarreport.pdf
Born and raised in Mesquite, Nevada, Cresent Hardy has always worked hard to not only take care of himself and his family, but to give back to his community. His commitment to public service is clear – he has served as the Mesquite Public Works Director, a member of the Virgin Valley Water District, as a member of the Mesquite City Council, and has served two terms in the Nevada State Assembly. Cresent Hardy brings over two decades of distinguished public service experience to his campaign for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District.
A fifth-generation resident of Mesquite – his grandfather was the first baby born in the town – Hardy knows the importance of building a strong, safe community for families. He and his wife, Peri, have been married for 32 years, and are the parents of four wonderful children.
Cresent is proud to have helped in the Golf Fore Kids fundraising program, which has raised over $165,000 for needy children in Southern Nevada in only four short years. Hardy is also active in his church and community organizations such as Junior Livestock, 4H, and veterans groups.
Growing up in a farming community taught Cresent the value of hard work at a young age. Working with cattle, horses, and pigs on his father’s ranch as a young man instilled a valuable work ethic that he applies each and every day as a businessman. As a small business owner, Cresent Hardy knows what it takes to create jobs, make payroll, and meet a budget…something we desperately need more of in Washington!
The value of a hard day’s work and being self-reliant helped him to succeed in his career as a licensed contractor and small business owner.
John Bernard is the CEO/Founder of Bernard Wood Working www.bernardwoodworking.com. He began training in the trade at the ripe old age of eight, by his father's side in a small shop in their family basement. His father took on ‘side jobs’ to supplement his income as a Vocational School Teacher in the Everett school system, teaching cabinetmaking.
Throughout his school years Mr. Bernards worked as both a cabinetmaker's and carpenter’s helper. He learned everything from Architectural design, draftsmanship, framing and furniture making. It was still customary in the 1960’s and early 1970’s for a carpenter to know the whole of the trade. Specialization had not taken root yet.
After an initial 4 year enlistment in the United States Marine Corps, John returned home to pursue a degree in Management Information Systems and to re-engage in the trade. By 1979 he had established a construction business in Wilmington Massachusetts and worked to build a customer base and portfolio of work that included custom home design and construction as well as custom cabinetmaking and casework working throughout the north shore area with occasional jobs out of state.
In 1987, John and family moved to Maine where they currently live and work. John still works alternately in the residential construction market designing and building individual homes as well as the commercial millwork industry.
Throughout these years John remained in the United States Marine Corps reserve and served in the Gulf War, retiring in 2003. The Bernard family is active in the local church and works with the youth group there throughout the year. The whole family has worked to make the business work as they enjoy the peace and quiet of life in the rural setting of the Western Mountain Region of Maine.

It's almost a given that after truly studying the relationship between the Asian proprietors have with the Black community that there has existed a tension that was born out of a definite disrespect.
This sense of disrespect was doled out in abundance to the very people to whom the Asian businessman has profited greatly from.
Sure, the answer is for those who are treated as scum to build their own economic system in order to uplift themselves up and away from depending on anyone who considers them not to be worthy of respect.
But in many cases this attitude from the Asian business people who get their riches from what is garnered from Black support has only increased because they seem to feel that no matter how Blacks are treated by them that they will still bring their hard earned money to them each and every time.
Not only is this arrogance displayed to the consumer, but it is also inflicted on those who actually work for them to help them get to that envied place of financial freedom that has been the benchmark of the American Dream.
Most Asians who have rooted their businesses in the Black community know that many are waking up to the condescending attitude of these people and have begun to back away from bringing their dollars to support them when they can do business with their own people.
.......because the bottom line is how many of these Asians bring THEIR money to support Black businesses?
Everyone supports their own, but the modern day Black man and woman seems to be so caught up in the mental delusion that everyone will support them back the way that they've always brought their money to others.
Listen to this very real situation and understand why the time is NOW to WAKE UP!
Support Your Own!
Hell! They do!
