This is a show that you can not miss. Imagine subjecting yourself and your children to someone for assistance and spiritual reasons. Now imagine that person you trusted to take advantage of you, as well as hold you and your children hostage for 10 years. Now imagine being rescued, your oppressor being sent to prison for life, and you rise from your pain and began teaching others how to prevent the same situation happening to them or overcoming their pain if they have been through the same situation. This is just a piece of the story that our guest Laura Cowan went through. Tune in as she joins Mr. Yancey live in the studio to talk about her story, how she survived and overcame and how you can do the same. Then stay tuned for "What's Going On in Your Ward?" featuring Ward 5 Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland. She let you know about any upcoming events, developments and concerns. You can call in with your questions and comments at (914)338-0665.
The run for the available City Council seats are just a few months away and the most contested seat is the 1st Ward seat held by Rev. Staton who is not running for re-election as far as we know!!!! As it stands right now there are five (count em five ) candidates in the running for the first ward... Manny Martinez, Veronica Ovalles, Mike Jackson, Alveria Spencer and maybe, just maybe Bernard Jones.... The second ward is a hot seat that is up for grabs also with Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman, Shahin Kalique, Eddie Gonzalez with the push seeming to go towards Kailique dispite some controversy regarding his background and (rumors) of his million-dollar bus company operating some-what illegaly. Then there is the Council President spot that is up in the air.... With 4th Ward Councilwoman Ruby Cotton and 3rd Ward Councilman Bill McKoy who by the way is the Council Elder Statesman knocking on the door.. With no real oppisition the Freeholder seats look to be going in the direction to Hector Lora, John Barlett and Sandi Lazzara as I beleive they should be.. With possibly more names to come as we get closer to November.... Petitions are due very soon and if you don't have enough then your out!!!!!!
Encouraging and Inspirational Words of Wisdom, Spirit and Life. "Father’s Honored & Father’s Remembered" Quoting the Honorable City Councilwoman from Jacksonville, Florida Glorious Johnson (R), “the church and the community must work together to address our crisis of death and destruction”. Many have prayed for change, but what contributions besides prayer have they offered. In St. Matthew 6:5 it states, ”and when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily, I say unto you, they have their reward”. What reward will we all receive in the years to come if we remain divided and hypocrites in the Word of God. We fathers have a guide, we have a word of truth and power, all we need to do is follow it. St. Luke 2:49, “we all must be about our fathers business,” united in a common cause to save our children and not allow another possible generation to be lost. Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington State, first proposed the idea of a "Father's Day" in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart. William Smart, a Civil War veteran, was widowed when his wife (Mrs. Dodd's mother) died in childbirth with their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington State. It was after Mrs. Dodd became an adult that she realized the strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent. In 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day.

Where can muslims get $5 million for praying in public? The Empire State Building. But they weren't trying to turn it into a mosque or anything, What would be the point of that?.
Doing What's Right:
Haiti and the Red Cross. 500 million dollars to build 6 homes?
Join us this evening from 7pm–8pm for another episode of Real Talk Radio. We are going to discuss what we as Individuals and a Community can do culturally to elevate ourselves that no form of Racism can stop.
Also joining us will be East Orange's 1st Ward Councilwoman Andrea McPhatter and former Councilman of Hillside, NJ and current NJ State Assembly Candidate Jorge Batista... both of whom are running in a June 2nd primary.
Our Broadcast today will be live at the Protest March at Parking Lot 1. We are at the corner of Washington and Front Streets, with Councilwoman Goosby, and many others standing for what is right. The Developers are planning to break ground beginning here in this parking area, and many residents are coming out to speak out against it. The Overcrowded schools with 60 students per class, and the imposition of a new 336 unit apartment building a block away will only detract from the education of our students. Join us live on the phone at 10:30 am 718-305-6322 or click on and hear the voices of those in protest.(blogtalkradio.com /don-durant)
Our Broadcast - Part 2 of this issue is all about the Available apartments, laying dormant in the Village of Hempstead. Councilwoman, Dorothy Goosby, pointed out in meetings,a nd in public speeches the empty buildings and facilities already available; Henry St. Homes, Linden Knolls, Main Street Apartments, as well as an empty apartment building across from Stop and Shop, next to Wells Fargo Bank on Fulton. The Mayor of the Village has stated that the new buildings being developed over 5000 units, are designed for young couples, studios and single bedroom apartments, with no provision made for additonal children who will attend the Over crowded Hempstead schools. The schools now hold more than 60 students per class and a single new building being planned for Washington and Front Streets, will be composed of more than 336 units. There are more than 15 buildings laying dormant now, in the Village with no tenants. Most public parking lots are being absorbed, for new buildings, leaving no access to parking for residents, shoppers and workers; or even for Helen Keller, Churches, such as Miracle temple, St. Georges and the Spanish Counseling Center. Hempstead is the 37th most populated community in New york State.
