    The School To Prison Pipeline In America

    in Moms and Family

     It is unconscionable but true the arrest rate in America has gone down but the prison incarceration rate has exponentially gone up! The inner city needless to say has the greatest percentages and people of color are disproportionately affected. Public awareness is necessary for us to make the changes and the will to put forth the effort will require love and courage. The data is undeniable the question is do we have the will to address it.

    Gair Maxwell - The Voice Of Maritime Wrestling

    in Wrestling

    Fans of wrestling in the Maritime provinces of Canada will remember Gair Maxwell as the long-time host and play-by-play man for Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling.  Always in his trademark tuxedo with red bowtie, Maxwell verbally tied together the action in the ring during the golden era of Maritime Wrestling having called the matches of such superstars as Leo Burke, No Class Bobby Bass, Killer Karl Krupp, The Cuban Assassin, Rotten Ron Starr and countless others. 


    Always entertaining and engaging, Gair was always quick-witted on the microphone, which came in handy when he was dealing with the likes of mouthpieces Bass & Brown sitting beside him weekly for commentary.  Never one to shy away from the tongue-in-cheek fun the heels would poke at him, Gair was beloved by Maritime wrestling fans and was the soundtrack to many Saturday afternoon and evenings when AGPW would air on ATV.


    These days, Gair Maxwell is a very successful motivational speaker and author.  He has delivered over 1,000 keynotes,
    seminars and workshops all over North America to many different audiences.  He's spoken at TedTalks in Moncton.  Gair's book, Nuts, Bolt & a Few Loose Screws is formatted as a composition of essays and short stories that connect the dots when it comes to building brands that stick.


    It is indeed an honor and a privlege for Jeff & Bobby to welcome Mr. Gair Maxwell, the voice of Maritime Wrestling to Pure Class on our next show. 


    Please join us for what is sure to be an unforgettable show with the voice we all know and love.
