Is teacher-student sex on the rise? Or has it always been like this and social media is just making it more visible? And are unions protecting teachers who do? Kyle Olsen from EAGNews.org discusses this serious issue affecting our children and what we can do about it.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

I encourage you to listen to these candidates and make an educated choice when you enter the poll booth.
A few days ago we had Glynn Willis "In the Pickle Barrel". Wednesday, October 29th his opponent local Attorney and Civic Leader George Jebaily will sharing the same mic. This is a good time to find out more about Mr. Jebaily and his vision for the City of Florence. All I can say about these two gentleman is I am glad I live in the County of Florence not the City of Florence. As far as local elections go, this will be a tough choice for the local citizens. We really need to find out what the differences are in these two men.
October is Domestic Abuse Month. We have addressed this issue from many different angles. On this day we will have Debbie Singletary of Pepper Spray, Stun Guns, Whistles and More! Anyone one to guess the topic? All joking aside. South Carolina, where I hang my shingle and lay my head is the leader in Domestic Abuse and Death of Women By Significant Other statistics. Isn't this something to make you proud? We have looked at the cause, results and decisions made (and not made) surrounding this topic. We are now going to look at personal protection and prevention.
These topics and more* will fill our morning visit "In the Pickle Barrel" at 8AM-10AM EST.
*Hint: We just might talk about the marriage of Governor candidates Tom Ervin and Vincent Sheheen. Just in case you have not heard, Ervin has "thrown in the towel" for a wedding dress. Yes, that is tacky. What a darling couple. Got to give equal time to Governor Nikki Haley.

Liberate Yourself.”D. Demond King lives by these words, and he is passionate about spreading the message. A native of Richmond, he knows firsthand what is needed to overcome the crime, drugs, and violence on the streets of this East Bay city because he has lived it.
Recognizing his own level of self-neglect, he changed his mindset and his lifestyle, focusing on finding his purpose and defining the influence he would have over his own life.In 2011, he co-founded the Redemption Center, a socio-economic and personal development organization that promotes social enterprise while advocating for social equality.“The thing about redemption is that when it’s genuine, it always translates into service,” said King, reflecting on his personal road of self-recovery and redemption.He says it is through random acts of kindness, simply doing things for others without expectation of something in return..
