    COMMON CORE W/MEG NORRIS PLUS A LOOK INSIDE THE REAL CUBA

    in Lifestyle

    Here at North Florida Writer Live we’re sure that the topic for Wednesday night is, at best, confusing to understand.  But we’re fortunate to have our frequent guest, Meg Norris of Opt Out Georgia, bring us some exciting news about what is going on in Georgia to push for legislation to dramatically change the Common Core disaster that we see all over this great land.  Meg also informed me about a businessman who has great knowledge of the real Cuba, Alex Gimenez, who will tell us about the plight of the poor Cuban people.  An American by birth born to parents of Cuban and Argentinian descent, he is concerned about what we don’t know about Cuba.  While we are opening doors and lifting the embargo against Cuba per the President’s executive actions, the Cuban people are living under an internal embargo courtesy of the Castro regime.  The poor citizens basically own nothing and serve as serfs for the state.  In the words of the late and great Paul Harvey, Alex brings “the rest of the story”.


    Alex is the father of two grown children and he is also very concerned about the educational system here in America and in his hometown of Atlanta.  So we’ll also get his take on Common Core and what a good businessman with international experience, not a crony-capitalist as a lapdog to the state, thinks about the process and what should be done about it.


    It should be a great discussion.  The show goes live Wednesday night at 7.  You won’t want to miss this one.  See you then.

    The Tampa Natives Show

    in Culture

    The Tampa Natives Show broadcast is a fond look back at growing in Tampa Florida when things were much more simple, the "Good Ole Days".


    Your hosts will discuss Tampa's unique history involving the Cuban, the Spanish and the Sicilian immigrant and the development of the cigar industry. Few cities in the US can match our story for its diversity and its culture.  From Vicente Martinez Ybor and Jose Marti to Lou Piniella and Tony LaRussa, Tampa's history is replete with color and style.


    Join your hosts brothers Chick and Mario Núñez for a funfilled 90 minute retrospective account like none you've heard before.  Each Saturday at 10:30 am (Tampa time), these two 4th generation Tampa Natives will share their stories.  You see, it's one thing to "know" the history, it's quite another to have lived it.    They will take your calls and keep you entertained.  Say hello to the newest podcast sensations you've never heard from before.


    Laugh till your stomachs hurt, cause your Saturday mornings never felt so good.  Grab your coffee (or your cafe con leche if you prefer) and come along for the ride.
