Since Hurricane Katrina, the onslaught of heroine into St. Bernard Parish has increased to nearly epidemic proportions. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that in 2009, the drug induced death rate in Louisiana was higher than the national average. For the 2004 - 2008 time period, St. Bernard Parish in Louisiana had the 5th highest rate of drug poisoning deaths in the country, at 48 deaths per 100,000 population.
Our guest, Bonnie Kaye, lost her daughter to heroine. Bonnie’s grieving began years before her daughter Jennifer stuck a needle in her arm for one last high.
“My daughter was dying for a long period of time,” Kaye, an Oxford Circle resident, said recently. “You are dying for a long time before the actual death comes.”
Kaye shares the heartbreaking story of her daughter’s overdose death in 2002 with her new book Jennifer Needle in Her Arm: Healing from the Hell of My Daughter’s Addiction.
Writing is familiar territory for Kaye, a relationship counselor and author of eight books who also operates the Northeast GED Center, in Philadelphia. But that experience, as well as the passage of 12 years, didn’t make her latest book any easier to write.
Please join us for a compelling and emotional look at an American tragedy.

In an effort to stay warm, BAMS will welcome Clay Chalkville football coach Jerry Hood to the program at 7:30 to talk about his team, and we will also welcome Tom Canterbury, play-by-play man for the Tide's softball team, at 8:30 to give us an update on how that season is progressing. Inbetween, we will have plenty of time for our beloved callers, and a chance for all three hosts to expound upon other happenings at the Capstone over the past week. The action starts at 7 with Cary Clark, Drew DeArmond and Thomas Watts. Be there or be Auburn.
Listen in to the audio of our children's book which is a metaphor of a real life story of love, friendship, perseverance and everlasting bonds. Juba Kali narrates and Denise Thompson stars as Tori the caterpillar/butterfly.
The video entitled, “French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl” is an animation for the first book collaboration between Cary and Gretchen. The (as-of-yet) unreleased DVD also features Allie Moffet as Lebeau, the Corgi, from the Lower 9th Ward, Steven Wilson who holds the role of Kendall, the mighty owl from the Pacific North West, who guides these friends, and Juba Kali who performed magnificently as the narrator. A heartwarming story loved by children and adults…
Our guest, following the audio, will be Ms. Denise Thompson and she will share the tale of her thoughts and feelings on bringing the character of Tori to life. Denise is an accomplished actress, salon owner and hair artist, wonderful mother and all around talented woman with a glowing heart and inspirational philosopher on the beauty of daily life. We have extended invites to Allie, Steven, Juba, and Caroline (The book’s illustrator) to call in and join the conversation. You won't want to miss this show.
This week on Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After, We are honored and pleased to have Bonnie Kaye come on the show as a host to interview Gretchen and I. Bonnie was the original patron of the Heroes of Katrina show we did several years ago. Without her support, wisdom, advise, and encouragement, the show would likely have never been, nor would be, now.
Cary met Bonnie through her efforts to support literally hundreds of independent authors who faced significant losses in revenue due to the fraudulant practices of Airleaf Publishing. Over the years she has become a close friend to both Cary and Gretchen.
We are excited to have Bonnie on as a host...this show brings us back around to where we started in 2010. So please join us Wednesday evening for a show where Cary and Gretchen give their "Then and Now" account and discuss new and upcoming projects with Bonnie Kaye.
There is no break from football, and BAMS appreciates every second of it. There is always something going on that the Crimson Tide football team is heavily involved in. This week, numerous former Tide players will showcase their talents in Indianapolis for numerous NFL franchises. The Combine is only one part of the pre-draft process, but it is an important one. We'll break down what to expect, as well as what has already happened with Jimmy Stein and Marq Burnett on the show this evening. The action kicks off at 7 with Cary Clark, Drew DeArmond and Thomas Watts. Be there or be Auburn.
Andrea Nelson, from the Clover Agency, joins Joe to discuss recent news events that you probably won't hear anywhere else. Tune in, you'll be surprised at some of the weird news stories and what passes for news nowadays!
Cary Quashen, from ACTION Family Counseling, talks about today's marijuana and it's affects on teens. It's not the same MJ as it was a few years ago...
As always... Joe deals with the topics his PIP's have sent him (that's his "Politically Incorrect Posse"). Tune in! Call in! Pick a topic and run with 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!
Cary, NC – It is possible to create a dynamic relationship and experience the full impact of healthy love, but it does require a commitment to partner, share similar values, self awareness, open, honest communication, and of course intimacy.
Linda Anders is the founder of www.keepingitwarm.com, a life and relationship coaching practice. She helps her clients discern what is missing for them personally, and what they need, want and desire so they can feel empowered, listen to learn and communicate more effectively and interact authentically.
"Relationship coaching is not just about the relationships we have with our partners, family or friends, but also the relationship we have with ourselves," says Linda. "It’s about you and how you can manifest what you desire for yourself so you can be fully ‘present’ with others and deeply self aware of how you interact."
Whether you are single and looking for love, currently in a relationship, married, separated or divorced, co-creating fulfilling relationships is about becoming more conscious of what you value and why, understanding what you need, then filling up your own "tank" so you can be available to love and be loved. A significant relationship is a dance in partnership that involves compromise, new agreements and healthy boundaries.
"Our thoughts control the energy flow within and around us." says Linda. "It’s always been my intention to marry these two distinct coaching models together and serve my clients to the best of my ability. As a coach I have to walk the talk and do my own personal work in order to stay clear and balanced in my own life and relationships."

There's a small dead period for football. Signing Day is done, and spring practice hasn't started yet. BAMS suffers from no such dead period woes, though. We'll be joined by Coach Quinneville to talk a bit of Bama Hockey, and we will be breaking down a bit of Crimson Tide Baseball with Roger Myers ahead of that season starting. The action starts at 7 with Cary Clark, Drew DeArmond and Thomas Watts. Be there or be Auburn.
Six months after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans celebrated Mardi Gras. The celebration in 2006 was as lively as ever, but smaller. There were four fewer days, six fewer carnival krewes and every parade had to use the same route......BUT laissez les bons temps rouler.....even history's most devastating natural disaster could not destroy the spirit of our community captured in the background photo of the world's largest and best free party. Join us during the height of the season as we chat about Mardi Gras immediately post-Katrina and then ten years later. Only in NOLA!!! Also, we have Valentines coming up on Saturday of next week...and nothing could be more appropriate than a show integrating Valentines Day with Mardis Gras fanfare.
This evening we have Vince Vance joining Cary and Gretchen the Wonder Girl for a reflective evening of looking at Mardi Gras and Valentines Day. We will be discussing the relationship between the two celebrations and sharing much of Vance's music...Join us for some fun!
In the first weeks after Katrina, New Orleans and the Gulf Coast lay in ruins. The infrastructure of the entire area had been literally eliminated.
Lily Duke an independent film producer had moved to the New Orleans about 5 weeks prior to Katrina. When the storm came she evacuated to Mobile, AL. From the time of her evacuation she had a calling from destiny and knew she could make a difference.
A couple days after Katrina, she returned to New Orleans but was told by Louisiana State Police border guards, that to be allowed through, she needed documentation that she was a First Responder in some official capacity. Through her military connections, she learned of the Church of Christ and became an official First Responder.
Through her resourcefulness, Lily ended up running a food and supply camp on Algiers Point the Mardi Gras World complex.
Lily has been on the show before and is coming back to give her perspective on the changes since Katrina and the impact her experiences have had on her live since the storm and after.
Please join us for an inspirational 2 hours on Thursday evening, February 5th at 8:00 pm EST, 7:00 pm CST, 6:00 pm MST, and 5:00 pm PST, for what should be an inspirational and amazing show.
