    No More Excuses for Not Having Strong Bones

    in Health

    Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon this Saturday, June 27, at 9:00 a.m. as we discuss "How to Have Beautiful Bones without Hormones." You have no more excuses for not having strong bones.


    Call into the studio with your questions and/or comments: 347-945-7433 or visit www.pihradio.net.


    Did you know that currently, forty-four million people in the U.S. have mild osteopenia, or thinning bones, and 10 million men and women have full-blown osteoporosis. 


    While it is true that women are more susceptible to this condition than men, you might be surprised to learn that one out of every four American men over sixty-five will suffer a broken bone in his lifetime because of osteoporosis, and one third of all men over seventy-five currently have osteoporosis.


    Osteoporosis is a killer. At the very least, it can be a crippler. When your bones become too weak or brittle to handle the stresses of everyday life, they begin to break down internally and then to just plain break, often when you least expect it.  There you are, walking down a sidewalk in February, you slip and fall on a patch of snow-covered ice, and wham, you've fractured your arm and have to flag down a neighbor to help you back into the house.


    Tune in to learn more.

    Hey Mr. Officer, There Are Way Too Many Darkies In Our Cement Pond!

    in Current Events

    This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will discuss the police brutality targeted at black teens attending a pool party in a predominately white Dallas, TX suburb. You've probably already seen the disturbing video footage of a white police officer throwing an unarmed teenage girl to the sidewalk and ground and then placing his knee in her back as he holds her to the ground. When concern blacks come to her aid, he immediately draws his gun and aims it at them, ready to shoot. The officer was placed on administrative leave and thankfully no teens were shot or killed by these savage men in blue. What do you think? Call in and express yourself here on The Fruit!

    A CONVERSATION WITH ERNEST AND JOE GALLO

    in News

    A CONVERSATION WITH ERNEST AND JOE GALLO


    What if Mayor Sabatino had borrowed $15 million?


    As I assumed the office of Mayor there were unresolved issues that had to be dealt with.  A significant issue was whether or not the city of Modesto was going to contribute $15 million to the new performing arts center. Ironically the vote to contribute the money was to have been taken a few weeks before my election.


    I contacted the city's director of finance and asked him if he could get $15 million. he replied that it was possible but said Mayor you will not like the balloon payment.


    Even though the county had already committed to their $15 million, because they were able to sell the tobacco tax money that was coming to the County, I decided that I could not commit to $15 million we did not have.


    I invited Ernest and Joe Gallo to the Mayor's office for lunch. I informed Ernest Gallo that the city simply did not have the money. He replied why am I not surprised. I then asked him if he wanted me to tell Marie Gallo and he replied, no, I will tell her myself. I have always felt that Ernest Gallo was truly not surprised at the city's financial condition and was satisfied with my decision.


    Later the council did commit to sidewalk and street improvements around the center.


    Today the County subsidizes the Gallo performing arts for $1.2 million a year. The council’s decision not to participate was met with widespread resentment but I can take satisfaction in the fact that the city of Modesto does not face the burden of a $1.2 million subsidy.

    Sisters Chat on the Stovall & Hoggard Communications Network

    in Current Events

    Sisters Chat is back and have we got a great show planned for you! Over the last several months, there have been several high-profile police incidents involving the death of young black men including the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the 45-year-old homeless man killed by LAPD last month, the death of Eric Garner who died as a result of police using a choke hold, and most recently, the forceful arrest of UVA student Martese Johnson who was left beaten and bloodied on the sidewalk outside a bar near campus. These are only a few of the recent violent confrontations between black males and police. 


    The deaths of these men, the call for investigations and seemingly no one being held accountable for the taking of innocent lives, a new battle cry has arisen in the continue fight for justice and equal civil rights. The battle cry, "Black Lives Matter," has been heard in rallies from California to New York City and many cities in between. 


    The Sisters Chat panel will talk about the "Black Lives Matter" movement, what it means to our communities and if there will be a new crop of black leaders that emerge from this new threat. 


    Join us on Wed., April 15 at 6 p.m. for Sisters Chat only on Stovall & Hoggard Communications Network on blogtalk radio. Call to join the conversation at 1-914-338-1541.
