    Ohio's Cedar Point Amusement Park & Perry's Victory Memorial

    in Travel

    On today's World Footprints radio show we will take flight across America with pilot Field Morey as he prepares for his Capital Air Tour.  Field and fellow pilot Conrad Teitell are embarking on an adventurous flight in a small aircraft to all the state capitals in the United States lower 48 plus Alaska in only two weeks.  The pilots plan to raise awareness about the importance of smaller airports to the tourism industry and to provide a virtual geography lesson to school children across America. We will also enjoy some time in middle America; namely Ohio, as we enjoy a walk through the roller coaster capital of the world--Cedar Point.  This Sandusky landmark is a place that holds special memories for us because every childhood summer was spent daring ourselves to ride the latest roller coaster.  This visit was no different because the Park's Bryan Edwards led us to an old favorite--The Blue Streak; and we enjoyed soaring through the air on the newest giant--The Gatekeeper.  Enjoy exploring the "best amusement park in the world" with us. Finally, one of the decisive battles in the War of 1812 took place in Lake Erie's Put-In-Bay where Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry captured the British squadron and raised the now famous "Don't Give Up The Ship" flag on board the US Brig Niagara.  National Park Ranger Marianne Duvendack takes us on a tour around the International Peace Monument and shares more about Ohio's role in the War of 1812.

    Progressive Conversation

    in Politics Progressive

    Hosts Andrea Miller and Rev. Terence Dicks are joined by Mississippi activist Kelly Jacobs. Topic of conversation is legalization of marijuana, release of non-violent drug offenders and expungement of records.


    Kelly Jacobs, 56, is a community organizer/activist and a 21 year resident of Hernando, Mississippi, who has registered voters, rescued injured or orphaned wildlife, helped candidates canvass, keeps honeybees, taught free after school world geography & chess to children, represented Mississippi at the last 3 DNC Conventions as an elected delegate, and protested the warS. Kelly has lived in California, New Mexico, Colombia, Nevada, Nicaragua, Hawaii, Brazil and Germany before moving to Mississippi with her wonderful husband and 2 sons.


    Currently Kelly is the author and sponsor of Mississippi's state wide Ballot Initiative 48, which asks Mississippians if they want to amend the State Constitution so that Marijuana is regulated like alcohol and the Governor is required to pardon non violent cannabis crimes.


    The MS SOS issued the #Bi48 petition and it has one year (until 12/29/15) to collect 21,443 certified signatures only from registered voters of Mississippi, in 5 different areas.  If even one area fails to collect that minimum number of certified signatures, the entire initiative fails. The deadline for all ballot initiatives to get onto the 2016 ballot is October 2, 2015, if #Bi48 needs more time (only until 12/29/15 deadline) to collect all of the certified signatures, it can get onto the 2017 ballot. Currently 9,205 signatures have been certified, an additional 6,126 signatures were rejected by the MS Circuit Clerks. More volunteers, publicity and of course donations are needed.
