    in Politics

    In this segment of the Vince Anello Show, Niagara Falls city Council Chair Andy Touma discusses issues and challenges facing the city. He stated that the issue of the frozen water lines in various parts of the city especially on 72nd St. will be addressed before the end of construction season.


    In his remarks he pointed to the issue of the city's finances and that something needs to be done to address the high rate of increase of the cost of city operations.


    I stated that there should be a public forum of the public officials who have the authority to appoint members of the Niagara Falls water board which include the governor, our senator, our assemblyman, mayor of the city Niagara Falls and the Council chair of the city Niagara Falls. Also, at the forum, the five members of the Niagara Falls water board should be present. Chairman Touma stated that he liked the idea and that he would try to move forward.

    Andre Controversa Presents: Same Sex Marriage: Did SCOTUS Overreach?

    in Politics Conservative

    All,


    This is Andre Traversa, host of the Andre Controversa show at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, also linked at www.libertarianrepublican.net.


    Tonight's topic will be the SCOTUS same sex marriage ruling, with four guests weighing in on the issue.


    As usual, conservatives were more willing to go on the air than liberals, but I did manage to get one moderate/liberal voice to join our panel discussion.


    His name is Christopher Hale, and he is with Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good.


    They have what they call a more "nuanced," approach to the ruling.


    Also joining us is Travis Webber, religious freedom specialist at the Family Research Council, who will share his concerns about the ruling's potential impact on religious liberty.


    The legal angle will come from Ken Connelly, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom.


    And last but not least, we will be jointed by the brilliant economics professor Jennifer Roback Morse, founder of the Ruth Institute, who will make her case for a libertarian defense of heterosexual marriage.


    The show begins at 9-00 p.m. CT, and we're set up to run for two hours; but we may end the show early; I just don't want to be cut off the air right after the first 60 minutes.


    I may add a few surprise guests at the last minute as well.


    Please feel free to call in at 914-803-4350, and tune in at 9-00 p.m. Ct for another exercise in Controversa controversy.


    Talk to you later,


    Andre¬

    My guest this week is Donna Saunders. She is a doctor twice over: in Clinical Psychology and in Ministry. Her primary focus is, not surprisingly, children and the community. She is co-founder and CEO of Guide Community Health Services. Its focus is preventative and aimed more at children in an attempt to reverse some of the disparity in health caused by economic and social issues these families face. 


    Dr. Saunders has done a lot of work exploring the connection between spirituality, and physical and social health. She has lectured on the topic, including for the Family Research Council, the Department of Health and Human Services, Howard University Graduate School of Education, and many other organizations.


    We will also touch very briefly on her views on the most recent SCOTUS decision.
