This show's topic will include two parts. The first will be an account, given to us by a member of a Northern Virginia Native American Tribe. The historian for the tribe shared a close encounter that lasted for three weeks. He was a young man when it happened, but the details of the account are still fresh in his mind.
The second half of the podcast will focus on Sasquatch stories of interactions as documented by Native Americans, and the types of interactions we are having today. The similiarities are there...
Please join us at 8pm EST this Tuesday.

Please join me Wednesday night at 7pm EST, as I recount Sasquatch sightings in Maine dating back to 1872, along with the recent sightings, which are as recent as February of 2014.
We will also talk about the recent aggression that black bears have shown in the past few years in New Jersey, how it is possibly due to increased pressure and human population growth, and how recent Sasquatch encounters might bear the same characteristics.
As always, thank you for tuning in. This is going to be a great program!

Communities Digital News offers another lively hour of conversation featuring our writers, editors and guests. This week the recent Cantor loss and Cochran win shines a light on the GOP voter dilemna.
Also, a New York Federal Appeals court asked an atheist group to "better explain" how the "Ground Zero Cross" creates anguish to non-Christians and offer evidence as to why it should not be included in the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
Finally, where are we at legally with the Immigration saga? Will this, after Obamacare, the IRS, NSA and Fast & Furious Scandals, be the President's Waterloo?
Finding common ground to stand on with all the issues thrown our way!
On a fateful day over a decade ago, two commercial airline flights were hijacked by terrorists and flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York City. Two days after the buildings fell on 9/11, as the dust and ash cleared and as torn and mangled bodies were pulled from the rubble, a worker at the site named Frank Silecchia discovered a peculiar object amidst the ruins.
The object was a 17-foot cross formed from two steel beams used in the construction of the World Trade Center. This cross became a symbol of hope in the days and weeks following the devastation of 9/11. It was one of the few parts of the towers that had not crumbled to bits or been incinerated and turned to ash as a result of the fiery explosions that accompanied the attacks.
As the cleanup effort continued around Ground Zero, this cross was placed on a pedestal on a plaza near the site of the attacks. Many people felt that its survival was providential, and it became a place where people prayed and left notes and messages of hope.
The Ground Zero Cross became the subject of much debate when plans for a September 11 Memorial Museum were put in motion. Several groups did not want the Christian symbol of the cross included in the memorial. However, in March 2013, a U.S. Court ruled that the Ground Zero Cross could be displayed as a part of the memorial. This week, the September 11 Memorial Museum opened in New York City, and the Ground Zero Cross is at the center of an underground gallery along with other monumental artifacts that survived the attacks.
Why is the symbol of the cross so powerful?

National Day of Protest in Ferguson: CD Witherspoon on the Ground following the murder of Mike Brown by Officer Daren Wilson.
Today Join The Rowdy one and Johm as they duscuss what can best be summed up as an apparent lack of common sense in America. From the appointment of an Ebola Czar to the CDC looking like complete bafoons on one hand and the ragiging debate over white privilege in America it seems that everyone has lost their minds. As evidenced in the fact that Rick's home state is in the news yet again for another set of murders!
