    NFL Star Biggest Loser Contestant Scott Mitchell

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Scott Mitchell.


    Scott Mitchell was a standout athlete growing up, excelling in football and setting the course for his impressive career in the NFL. He was born in Salt Lake City and grew up in Springville, Utah with three older sisters. After attending the University of Utah, Mitchell played 12 seasons in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. He was drafted in the fourth round by the Dolphins and backed up Pittsburgh-born Hall of Famer Dan Marino. In 2010, Mitchell was inducted into the University of Utah Hall of Fame.


    Mitchell's biggest motivation for going on the show THE BIGGEST LOSER was seeing his dad die of obesity-related causes early this year, causing personal concerns that he could be headed down the same path if he did not choose to change his lifestyle.  At 46 years old and 366 pounds, Mitchell has sleep apnea and high blood pressure. Weight has been an issue for Scott since he was about 35, mainly due to a busy life and poor diet. As a devoted and loving father, and with five kids ranging in age from 11 to 21, he wants to be sure he will be there for his family, a decision which made him ready to embrace a healthy lifestyle. When he loses the weight, Mitchell says he wants to look amazing in clothes and be physically active.

    Pete Thomas of Biggest Loser - Sticking to Your Fitness Goals

    in Fitness

    Sharon McRill, Owner of The Betty Brigade, will be talking with Pete Thomas from The Biggest Loser about sticking to your fitness goals.


    In November 2005, Pete Thomas walked away from the finale of NBC’s The Biggest Loser a winner - and a loser. He won $100,000 for losing the most weight of all the contestants that season. What he lostwas 185 pounds in only nine short months – most of which he lost at home after being “voted off” by the other contestants.


    At his largest, Thomas tipped the scales at over 416lbs. As a child, Pete never learned about nutrition and exercise due to his transient lifestyle – a result of his mother’s serious mental illness. As a young child, he was left alone or with his younger sister— forced to find food wherever he could. Both Pete and his sister were put into foster care.

    Free Range Parenting in Montgomery County

    in News

    Long before the Meitivs of Silver Spring clashed with Montgomery County over their young children’s walk home from a park, parents across the county were at odds with authorities over similar questions: How much supervision do our children need and when are they truly at risk? 


    The free range parenting movement has caused parents across the country to unite in similar fashion and protest what they consider the heavy hand of government creeping itself into how parents choose to responsibly parent their children. How much is too much government interference in parenting? How can authorities work with parents who adopt free range parenting? What conversations about free range parenting need to occur between families and the authorities? 


    On a new episode of A Miner Detail brought to you by the Change Montgomery County radio network, host Ryan Miner will dissect the free range parenting movement and facilitate a discussion about how parents choose to responsibly parent their children. 


    Listen LIVE on Wednesday, April 22 at 9:00 p.m. on BlogTalkRadio.com/AMinerDetail to a new episode of A Miner Detail!

    Relay for Life in Montgomery County

    in News

    Relay For Life is an overnight community fundraising event, coordinated by the American Cancer Society. 


    Communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too many. Teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times. Relayers also provide a carnival atmosphere that is fun for whole families, a Survivor's Luncheon, and a closing event of lighted luminaries to honor those affected by the disease. Relay events are fun, informational, and inspiring!


    This week on a new episode of A Miner Detail, host Ryan Miner will interview individuals and team organizers in Montgomery County who will participate in Relay for Life events spread throughout the county. In the second half of the show, Ryan will host individuals on the show from Montgomery County impacted by the Relay for Life events.

    The Biggest Loser

    in Politics

    I am not referencing the television program wherein the winner is the one that lost the most weight.  However, there was a big loser as a result of the incident in Ferguson, MO that I believe needs attention.  Further, there is a lesson to be learned here that is not receiving the attention that it deserves.  Please join me and call with your worldview now also toll-free 888-773-4496.  Look forward to hearing from you.
