    Grenadine Islands under the sea

    in Travel

    The Grenadines are a haven for scuba divers, some of the world’s most spectacular aquatic scenery and much more.  Our first stop takes us to Bequia (pronounced Beck-way), the largest of the Grenadines.  Fresh from a dive at Devils Table with her dive buddy Cathy Sachs of Dive Bequia, Tonya and Cathy will recount their dive and why Bequia offers an unusual diving experience.  Cathy will also share how this island has changed her life. Then we’ll visit Bequia’s Park Bay, home to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, where a native retired skin-diving fisherman affectionately known as “Brother King”, has spent  more than a decade of his life to helping to conserve the endangered hawksbill turtle.  Brother King and his helpers monitor the beaches and nests here to protect mother turtles from poachers.  They also care for the baby hatchlings in the sanctuary during the turtles’ vulnerable years of life. Many of the hatchlings are released into a protective area just south of Bequia called Tobago Cays—our next stop.  Lesroy Noel is the Park Ranger for the Tobago Cays Marine Park which lies in the southern Grenadines.  The area comprises of five isles bordered by a giant horseshoe reef and teems with wildlife and wild sea turtles.  Finally, we’ll travel just a short distance by boat to the private Palm Island where we’ll catch up with the island’s resident artist and (retired) medical professional Dr. Patrick Chevallier.  Patrick is one of the world’s premiere undersea artists and his character is as charming and colorful as his artwork.

    Salute to the Tuskegee Airmen of the Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Despite adversity and limited opportunities, African Americans have played a significant role in US military history over the past 300 years. They were denied military leadership roles and skilled training because many believed they lacked qualifications for combat duty. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the US military. Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure that resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen.


    The military selected Tuskegee Institute to train pilots because of its commitment to aeronautical training. Tuskegee had the facilities, and engineering and technical instructors, and climate for year-round flying. The first Civilian Pilot Training Program students completed their instruction in May 1940. The Tuskegee program was then expanded and became the center for African-American aviation during World War II.


    The Tuskegee Airmen overcame segregation and prejudice to become one of the most highly respected fighter groups of World War II. They proved conclusively that African Americans could fly and maintain sophisticated combat aircraft. The Tuskegee Airmen’s achievements, together with the men and women who supported them, paved the way for full integration of the US military. 


    Nov. 6, 1998, President Clinton approved Public Law 105-355, which established the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, to commemorate and interpret the heroic actions of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. The site contains a museum and interpretive programs at Moton Field and a national center.


    Salute to the sons of the US Virgin Islands: Henry E. Rohlsen and Herbert Heywood, The Tuskegee in Paradise, and to the newsletter about them of the same name.

    Indycar's Simona de Silvestro, Catholicism history and Panther conservation

    in Travel

    On today’s show World Footprints explores the plight of the endangered Panther, we chat with one of the rising IZOD Indycar stars Simona de Silvestro, and we also view Catholicism through the lens with Father Robert Barron.  As a special bonus, we added some sound bytes and interviews from the DC Stop Modern Slavery walk to end human trafficking.


    Panthers once roamed the entire southeastern United States; from Florida to South Carolina and Louisiana.  However, the panther was added to the Endangered Species List in 1967 and today the remaining population is isolated in South Florida.   The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is at the forefront of the Panther conservation efforts and Park Ranger Sandy Mickey from the Florida Panther & Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuges joins us today to talk about some of these initiatives. 


    Then, we enjoyed a chat with one of the IZOD Indycar series rising stars, Simona de Silvestro.  Simona is one of a handful of female Indycar racers and she is one of the most prominent racecar drivers on the track.   She is the first woman in Atlantic Series history to have earned the most wins and pole positions, and the IZOD Indycar Rising Star Award.  Finally, we will talk to Father Robert Barron, the Francis Cardinal George Professor of Faith and Culture at Mundelein Seminary and a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, about his PBS series Catholicism. This documentary illustrates the history and treasures of a global religion shared by more than one billion people around the world by exploring art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of the Catholic tradition.

    Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris

    in News

    Oren M. Levin-Waldman, Ph.D., Professor, Graduate School for Public Affairs and Administration at The Metropolitan College of New York, has just written "Minimum Wage Supporters Need to Learn How to Socialize Conflict" which dissects the famous work by political scientist E.E. Schattsschneider work in "The Semisovereign People," which describes two sides to a conflict, those involved, the actors, and those sitting on the sidelines, the spectators. We'll learn the role each plays in the dynamic of life, politics, and, yes, the minimum wage. Enjoy an hour that reveals much in the palatable approach expressed by the professor who opens the hour this Wednesday, July 29, 2015 @ 10am


    Dan Murphy, Editor-in-Chief of the Rising Media Group attends the program at 11am. The issues tend to revolve about the City of Yonkers. Join in the mix.


    Rubén Díaz Jr., President, The Borough of the Bronx, attendd the program day at 11:30am. Scheduled to appear for over a week's time, we today learned the New York State Department of Labor revealed increased job numbers continuing a steady drop in the borough's unemployment rate. We'll learn what it has taken to turn the borough around. While prospects for continuing investment in The Bronx are strong, the likely Puerto Rico's Municipal Bond meltdown is analogous to that of Greece. The default deadline is this Saturday, August 1, 2015. At issue is whether the $70 billion debt could affect The Bronx, New York City, and many Caribbean Islands. Is Puerto Rico too big to fail? We'll find out what the ramifications may be.


    Send get well wishes to John Wiles, P. O. Box 3186, Pinehurst, NC 28374. He and wife Laurie Bogart Wiles anchor our weekly Thursday opening segment "Driving Me Crazy."
