HomeTown Competitiveness is a Come-Back / Give-Back approach to rural community building. HomeTown Competitiveness started in 2002 with a simple goal: Help rural communities build upon the assets they already have. Milan Wall, Co-Director of the Heartland Center will help you understand the concept behind HTC and give a couple of examples of communities that have seen a positive impact.
The founders of the program knew that rural communities already have everything they need to be successful. 10 years after its inception, the benefits of HTC can be seen across the country as small communities are attracting new residents and becoming competitive in the global economy.
Reading is fundamental to function in today's society, but now, too many adults in America and especially in Louisiana cannot read well enough to understand the instructions on a medicine bottle. Complete job or rental applications without help. Louisiana is 44th in the ranking of United States of America education achievement. Louisiana hasn’t made much progress in the past seven years in a national assessment of educational achievement. The most damning are Fs in academic achievement and academic achievement for low-income and minority students in its 2014 report. Superintendent of Education John White said Louisiana has always had an “F “in academic performance in the Chamber’s assessment. Louisiana also received failing grades in return on investment, postsecondary and workforce readiness and international competitiveness. “What’s damning is we got a D in truth in advertising,” White said. “It says that when we call kids basic, it doesn’t mean our kids score as high as those in other states. It points out that we have low expectations. One of the problems is schools have not expected outstanding achievements from high school students for decades.”
This week, Thursday Night Thunder with host Adam Sinclair (@faborplumbs) and co-host Mykkal Mulalley (@Mykkal61) gaze into the future of auto racing with the drivers of Panoz Delta Wing, Katherine Legge and Sean Rayhall. Katherine Legge and Andy Meyrick return for a third year to compete for Panoz DeltaWing Racing in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship. They are joined by Georgia native Sean Rayhall who proved his driving prowess behind the wheel of the coupe at the recent IMSA Daytona Test.
Legge and Rayhall will campaign the full season with Meyrick joining for the endurance events.
The 2016 season looks set to be an exciting one for Panoz DeltaWing Racing. With the new name comes an impressive new livery reminiscent of the legendary Panoz ‘Spirit of America’ LMP1 Roadster S 14 years ago which continues to be a fan favorite to this day. This new livery represents Panoz continued focus as a U.S.-based designer and manufacturer of exclusive luxury sports cars with a truly successful motorsports heritage.
Panoz DeltaWing Racing returns this year with one goal in mind: To consistently demonstrate the coupe’s competitiveness and be on the podium. The team enters 2016 following strong performances where they were up front and on-pace with the leaders in several of the late-season races including Lone Star Le Mans and Petit Le Mans.

Clete Bulach- Leading Authority on Educational Policy, Reform and Global Competitiveness will be joining us "In the Pickle Barrel" to discuss is there a difference between school violence and cop brutality? Topics in the recent news about a school resource officer taking down a female student points to the typical overreaction by police. An experienced officer at least twice the size of the student decided that the best way to deal with her quiet, nonviolent refusal to give up a cellphone and leave the room was to grab her by the neck, flip her over her desk, and drag her along the floor. Was this an overreaction? Is this the big issue that is plaguing our society? Why does it continue to happen?

Rock The Boat
Conflict is a natural part of any intimate relationship. Yet most couples either avoid it or try to smooth over their differences. This results in at least one partner compromising their integrity—and stunting their own growth. Gritty, often irreverent, and always practical, author Resmaa Manakem of Rock the Boat challenges couples not to flee from conflicts, because the emotional stalemate that conflicts produce creates an opportunity for profound transformation. This transformation affirms each partner’s individuality while forging a more mature intimacy, a greater trust, and a deeper bond.
Rock the Boat challenges the idea that conflict between partners is unhealthy or something to avoid. Instead, it encourages both people to stand by what they need and who they are—but to do so with compassion rather than competitiveness or vengefulness. This is the purpose of an intimate relationship: to create an atmosphere where both people learn to grow up and mature in their relationship by appreciating each other’s individual needs in a caring and mature way."
