    Since Hurricane Katrina, the onslaught of heroine into St. Bernard Parish has increased to nearly epidemic proportions.  The Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that in 2009, the drug induced death rate in Louisiana was higher than the national average.  For the 2004 - 2008 time period, St. Bernard Parish in Louisiana had the 5th highest rate of drug poisoning deaths in the country, at 48 deaths per 100,000 population.
    Our guest, Bonnie Kaye, lost her daughter to heroine.  Bon­nie’s griev­ing began years be­fore her daugh­ter Jen­nifer stuck a needle in her arm for one last high.
    “My daugh­ter was dy­ing for a long peri­od of time,” Kaye, an Ox­ford Circle res­id­ent, said re­cently. “You are dy­ing for a long time be­fore the ac­tu­al death comes.” 
    Kaye shares the heart­break­ing story of her daugh­ter’s over­dose death in 2002 with her new book Jen­nifer Needle in Her Arm: Heal­ing from the Hell of My Daugh­ter’s Ad­dic­tion.
    Writ­ing is fa­mil­i­ar ter­rit­ory for Kaye, a re­la­tion­ship coun­selor and au­thor of eight books who also op­er­ates the North­east GED Cen­ter, in Philadelphia.  But that ex­per­i­ence, as well as the pas­sage of 12 years, didn’t make her latest book any easi­er to write. 
    Please join us for a compelling and emotional look at an American tragedy.

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After: The Adventures of Lily Duke

    in Writing

    In the first weeks after Katrina, New Orleans and the Gulf Coast lay in ruins.  The infrastructure of the entire area had been literally eliminated.


    Lily Duke an independent film producer had moved to the New Orleans about 5 weeks prior to Katrina.  When the storm came she evacuated to Mobile, AL.  From the time of her evacuation she had a calling from destiny and knew she could make a difference.


    A couple days after Katrina, she returned to New Orleans but was told by Louisiana State Police border guards, that to be allowed through, she needed documentation that she was a First Responder in some official capacity.   Through her military connections, she learned of the Church of Christ and became an official First Responder.


    Through her resourcefulness, Lily ended up running a food and supply camp on Algiers Point the Mardi Gras World complex.


    Lily has been on the show before and is coming back to give her perspective on the changes since Katrina and the impact her experiences have had on her live since the storm and after.


    Please join us for an inspirational 2 hours on Thursday evening, February 5th at 8:00 pm EST, 7:00 pm CST, 6:00 pm MST, and 5:00 pm PST, for what should be an inspirational and amazing show.

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After - Mardi Gras Then and Now with Vince Vance

    in Books

    Six months after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans celebrated Mardi Gras. The celebration in 2006 was as lively as ever, but smaller. There were four fewer days, six fewer carnival krewes and every parade had to use the same route......BUT laissez les bons temps rouler.....even history's most devastating natural disaster could not destroy the spirit of our community captured in the background photo of the world's largest and best free party. Join us during the height of the season as we chat about Mardi Gras immediately post-Katrina and then ten years later. Only in NOLA!!!  Also, we have Valentines coming up on Saturday of next week...and nothing could be more appropriate than a show integrating Valentines Day with Mardis Gras fanfare.


    This evening we have Vince Vance joining Cary and Gretchen the Wonder Girl for a reflective evening of looking at Mardi Gras and Valentines Day.  We will be discussing the relationship between the two celebrations and sharing much of Vance's music...Join us for some fun!

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After - Cary and Gretchen, with Bonnie Kaye

    in Books

    This week on Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After, We are honored and pleased to have Bonnie Kaye come on the show as a host to interview Gretchen and I.  Bonnie was the original patron of the Heroes of Katrina show we did several years ago.  Without her support, wisdom, advise, and encouragement, the show would likely have never been, nor would be, now.


    Cary met Bonnie through her efforts to support literally hundreds of independent authors who faced significant losses in revenue due to the fraudulant practices of Airleaf Publishing.  Over the years she has become a close friend to both Cary and Gretchen.


    We are excited to have Bonnie on as a host...this show brings us back around to where we started in 2010.  So please join us Wednesday evening for a show where Cary and Gretchen give their "Then and Now" account and discuss new and upcoming projects with Bonnie Kaye.

    Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After /The St Bernard Parish Fire Department

    in Writing

    When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise.  For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute.  99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed.  In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.


    St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.


    As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).


    After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated.  Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.


    For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people.  The community is still re-building 10 years later.


    During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.


    Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.


    Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet.  We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".


    Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.
