    Entrepreneur Steve Zielinski of Crazy Steve’s Pickles & Salsa

    in Radio

    Pickles have a long history going back to 2400 BC. Aristotle thought that cured cucumbers had healing properties, and Julius Caesar fed pickles to his men as he believed that they offered physical and spiritual strength. Cleopatra believed her beauty came from eating large amounts of pickles. Ever wonder who brought  pickling to the New World? Shout out to Christopher Columbus who grew cucumbers in order to pickle them. In the 1500s, the area which is now New York City had the largest group of Dutch commercial picklers. Americans as a whole eat more than 2.5 million pounds of pickles, and dill pickles are twice as popular as sweet pickles. What do you do when your garden blesses you with an abundance of cucumbers? Steve Zielinski shared his cucumber crop with friends, family, and co-workers, but discovered everyone had their limit on the crunchy cukes. So when life gives you lemons, or in this case cucumbers, you make pickles. And in July of 2009 Crazy Steve's Pickles & Salsa was born. Steve’s products are found in 25+ stores and have been sold nationwide. Varieties include Black Bean & Corn Salsa, Green Smokin Salsa, Mesquite Fire Roasted Salsa, Shot Over the Rim Spicy Bloody Mary Mix, Badass Barnacle Bloody Mary Mix, Cajun Cukes, and Let the Sunshine Pickles. Products are gluten free, vegan friendly, low sodium, natural ingredients, and feature unique flavors. Crazy Steve's Foundation aims to make the world a better place by donating to charities in education, the environment, health, human services, community development, international causes, and arts and culture. Steve has another mission—he’s running for NJ State Assembly’s 12th District in the Green Party. After the interview, please check After Hours with Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    American Sovereignty Radio: Highlight Rachel Blasingame

    in Politics

    Rachel Blasingame was 16 years old when she was killed by a drunk driver on a Mesquite, TX freeway, May 30, 2003. Since that day, she has continued to make an important impact on many lives, and in many ways.

    Rachel was involved with the Shattered Dreams program. She wanted to be part of persuading students not to drink and drive.  It was ironic that an intoxicated driver took part in ending her life.

    Rachel was a straight A, National Honor Society student. She shared her talents through her appreciation of music and theater. Rachel read her bible under the covers at night and made notes in it from cover to cover.  She read until the pages fell out and she had to laminate the outside pages.


    Her true talent, however, was realized through her selfless desire to help other people.


    Her spirit of giving included participating at Special Olympics, homeless shelters, and in children's libraries.

    This year marks the 12th Annual Rachel Blasingame Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament. It will be held at Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Rockwall, Texas on Monday, June 1, 2015.


    The Rachel Blasingame Scholarship Fund <~(Please Donate) assists deserving High School Seniors in meeting tuition requirements at Abilene Christian University where Rachel was headed. These efforts have raised over $160,000 and assisted 142 freshman. Her spirit continues to live on by fulfilling college dreams for others.


    Join us as we discuss Rachel's story with her mom, Julie Blasingame.

    Recruiting with Coach Emerson Martin and Players2Pros Crew!!!

    in Sports

    Oklahoma recruit Jean Delance said he withdrew his commitment to coach Bob Stoops after seeing a video that showed fraternity members at the school chanting racist remarks.


    "Very uneducated people. I wouldn't want my son or child to go there or to anywhere like that," Delance told CBS 11 in Dallas-Fort Worth on Monday. "It was just very disturbing to me. I didn't like it."


    Oklahoma Fraternity with the racist comments. We will discuss with Coach Emerson Martin and the crew tonight. 


     


    Delance, a four-star offensive lineman who is ranked No. 272 on the ESPN Junior 300, committed to the Sooners in November and visited Norman with his mother, Altavian, last weekend.


    But when they returned to their home in Mesquite, Texas, the video, in which members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon also indicated that African-Americans would never be admitted to the fraternity, prompted them to rethink the commitment.


    "I've had family history in racial issues, inequality," Altavian Delance told CBS 11. "Jean knows these things are serious to us."


    Oklahoma president David Boren reacted swiftly Tuesday, expelling two students he says have been identified as leading the chant.

    Cresent Hardy Congressional Candidate For NV will be on September 15, 2014 1PM

    in News

     Born and raised in Mesquite, Nevada, Cresent Hardy has always worked hard to not only take care of himself and his family, but to give back to his community.  His commitment to public service is clear – he has served as the Mesquite Public Works Director, a member of the Virgin Valley Water District, as a member of the Mesquite City Council, and has served two terms in the Nevada State Assembly.  Cresent Hardy brings over two decades of distinguished public service experience to his campaign for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District.


    A fifth-generation resident of Mesquite – his grandfather was the first baby born in the town – Hardy knows the importance of building a strong, safe community for families.  He and his wife, Peri, have been married for 32 years, and are the parents of four wonderful children.


    Cresent is proud to have helped in the Golf Fore Kids fundraising program, which has raised over $165,000 for needy children in Southern Nevada in only four short years.  Hardy is also active in his church and community organizations such as Junior Livestock, 4H, and veterans groups.


    Growing up in a farming community taught Cresent the value of hard work at a young age. Working with cattle, horses, and pigs on his father’s ranch as a young man instilled a valuable work ethic that he applies each and every day as a businessman.  As a small business owner, Cresent Hardy knows what it takes to create jobs, make payroll, and meet a budget…something we desperately need more of in Washington!


    The value of a hard day’s work and being self-reliant helped him to succeed in his career as a licensed contractor and small business owner.

    TRUE DETECTIVE-Gary Sweet

    in Entertainment

    For years David Elliot Penton stalked elementary schools and playgrounds looking for young girls from low-income neighborhoods to abduct, rape and murder. He thought of them as "throwaway kids"-hardly missed, and soon forgotten, except by those who loved them. He was every parent's worst nightmare. The bogeyman they warned their children about ... the fiend who lurked outside bedroom windows.


    Christi Meeks disappeared during a game of hide-and-seek outside her mother's Mesquite apartment complex in January 1985 and was found dead less than three months later in Lake Texoma.
    Christie Proctor's body was found in a south Plano field in April 1988, more than two years after the fourth-grader was last seen walking from her North Dallas apartment to a friend's house. And Roxann Reyes was snatched from an alley while playing outside her Garland apartment in November 1987.


    This story focuses on the work of a team of police detectives, starting with Garland Police Detective Gary Sweet, who picked up the cases of the three missing girls after they'd gone cold.


    In 1996, years after the murders, he found the girls' files and information on suspect David Elliot Penton. "For some reason, out of all the stuff that was in those two boxes, I pulled out a file and started reading about him," Sweet said.


    Penton was in jail in Ohio for killing 9-year-old Nydra Ross. What followed was a series of fateful twists — from reviewing old tips, to conducting new interviews and gathering information shared by Penton's cellmates. By 2003, Sweet and the team had enough to indict Penton. TRUE DETECTIVE-From The Detective's Perspective-Gary Sweet
