    Running for Public Office

    in Business

    On April 4 my guest will be Ken Biberaj.  Ken, the Chairman of the Board of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, was born in New York City, a first generation American after his parents emigrated from Albania in 1968. He received his Bachelor’s in political science at American University, his Master’s in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School and a JD from New York Law School.


    Since 2005, he has served as an executive at his family’s real estate company. The firm is active in Manhattan and the Bronx and also owns and operates the iconic Russian Tea Room.  His work in real estate includes investment sales and retail brokerage. On the brokerage side, Ken has carved out a niche advising restaurants and small businesses on their expansion around the City. At the Russian Tea Room, he oversaw the restoration and reopening of the restaurant in 2006 and continues to handle public relations and business development.


    As part of his role with The Russian Tea Room, Ken has become an advocate for the hospitality industry. He sits on the Restaurant Committee for NYC & Company and also on the Local Leadership Council of Business Forward. This activism in support of small businesses and the hospitality sector motivated Ken to run for City Council on the Upper West Side in 2013.


    His campaign focused on bringing new energy and a fresh perspective to the Council, with a particular commitment to advocate for the small and medium size businesses that make our City so unique. His presence on the political scene was quickly recognized. He was recognized by City & State Magazine as a “40 under 40” upcoming political leader. Moreover, he received endorsements from the Small Business Coalition, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, Governor David Paterson, the League of Conservation Voters and the League of Independent Theaters.

    in Politics

    While the talk at the coffee shops was all about the weather the upcoming election is beginning to pick up some interest . John Accardo now a republican has announced his intentions to run for mayor of the city Niagara Falls.


    Tom Stevenson has announced his intentions to run for town Council in the Town of Wheatfield. Tom, also a republican has been involved in politics for a long time. He is a former chairman of the city of Niagara Falls Republican committee.


    The Niagara Gazette reported that Hamister has secured a $3.85 million grant through Empire State Development and is applying for $4.2 million in project savings, $2.9 million of which will come from property tax abatement. Some $4.2 million will come from company equity. Of the project's total cost, $31.2 million will be eligible for sales tax exemptions.


    The Buffalo news reported on the Hotel Niagara. Owner Harry Stinson told the IDA that the downtown Niagara Falls hotel, which is to be renovated for a 2016 reopening, will rent rooms for student use, as part of a policy to “rent blocks of rooms to various groups for extended periods of time.” But they will continue to be hotel rooms, he said in a letter to the IDA. The college is to have a five-year lease on rooms for about 150 students.

    The Buffalo news also reported on a meeting held Tuesday night (2/12/15) at the Niagara Falls Public Library on the potential future for the YMCA building on Portage Road as the new home of the Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission.
    More than 100 people packed the auditorium of the Niagara Falls Public Library to hear from representatives of the mission, YMCA Buffalo Niagara and others about what’s being proposed.


    One person that is gearing up for sure for this year's elections is our guest today Vince Sandonato. Vince is the chairman of the Niagara Falls Republican committee.

    Packers Therapy Episode 233: Chris and Dave Gaze Into Their Balls of Crystal

    in Football

    The boys get ready for the regular season by examining the pathology report on the Green Bay Packers roster, looking ahead to the season opener at Seattle, and venturing some predictions about what the upcoming season might hold by reopening The Packers Therapy Hotel and Casino betting lines.


    Posting its first show in 2005, Packers Therapy is the longest-running Packers podcast on the Internet. Hosts Chris and Dave began the show as a way of capturing the spirited chats the two co-workers had about the team around the office. The two have no pretense about being experts: they are just two opinionated shareholders  who love the team, follow it closely, but don't always see the Packers fortunes eye to eye.


    The guys encourage comments and questions via their Twitter feed @PackersTherapy and read and respond to as many as they can during each show.


    Packers Therapy  is a part of the Packers Talk Radio Network, serving up enough weekly podcasts to satisfy the most fervent of Packer fans.

    The Holly Wood Show Episode #55 Sticking MY Finger In The Crocodile's Eye

    in Music

    TOP NEWS COMING TO YOU LIVE ON THE HOLLYWOOD SHOW TONIGHT


    Sticking MY Finger In The Crocodile's Eye


    Certainly public safety requires police forces of well-trained officers ready to put their lives on the line for the people they serve. It also requires that the people who pay for and rightfully expect to be protected by the police have well-founded confidence in them, and that confidence requires in turn that the public has an opportunity to discover and challenge bad or outmoded police policies, practices and attitudes.
     


    Less than a week has passed since the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, and even less time since the killing of 26-year-old Ezell Ford, so it is simply not yet possible to say with certainty whether police in each case followed their training and policy.


    But a basic fact of life in Ferguson is undeniable:


     


    Los Angeles is high on the list of cities with long histories of police abuses, especially in African American neighborhoods. Those include a number of deadly encounters between officers and mentally disturbed people that could have been avoided...


     


    That's still not enough, though. Even if it turns out that policy and procedure were scrupulously followed in the Ford shooting, it is hard to believe that police cannot refine their encounters with unarmed citizens to avoid the use of deadly force — and to avoid reopening wounds that have barely begun to heal here and remain raw elsewhere.
