Sean and Loleda Moman were returning from a family vacation when an accident changed their lives forever. Instead of retreating, however, they decided to keep moving foward and have raised a wonderful family while making in impact at Allegheny Center Alliance Church on the North Side of Pittsburgh. Today Sean and Loleda join co-hosts Karla and John to talk about their journey and faith that has made them worthy of the title, "urban heroes."
We are restarting our blog-radio show, "Heroes of Katrina." Several years ago, we hosted the show under the generous support of Bonnie Kaye ("Books of Excellence"), who provided support for our efforts.
We are now restarting the show under a thematic of "Ten Years After." What are the heroes written about in the book, "Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin'" doing now? How have their lives changed. What is new and interesting for them?
All these questions are important, as Katrina changed many lives in many ways...As always we provide this show to exhibit a perspective of the resiliency of the human spirit.
As the winds of Katrina blew, lives were changed. People did what they had to do...and their stories reflect the power of human and perseverance and spirit.
What better than ten years later do we explore lives affected and re-equlibrated and re-reflected.
Please join us for an inspirational and reflective discussion on the human spirit as reflected by the changes of lives.
Vincent’s Italian Cuisine was founded in 1989 by native New Orleanian Vincent Catalanotto. From a large, close Sicilian family, Vincent grew up eating wonderful food prepared by his parents who were both great cooks. Vincent learned to love and appreciate food at an early age, and then spent most of his life working in the service industry, fueling his passion for the restaurant business while allowing him to hone his innate ability to create fabulous meals and to make people happy.
Vincent opened the first of his successful neighborhood restaurants in 1989. The “little Italian place on the side street” quickly became Metairie’s hidden jewel. Vincent developed a menu that showcases the finest and freshest ingredients available (in fact, there are no walk-in coolers or freezers at Vincent’s - produce, seafood, meats and cheeses are delivered fresh daily!)
Vincent opened a new restaurant in 1997 on St. Charles Avenue near the Riverbend, much to the delight of the Uptown community, which has since embraced Vincent’s Italian Cuisine as their favorite neighborhood restaurant.
The Vincent’s restaurants endured the ravages of Katrina and bounced back in excellence. Today they are considered the best Italian restaurants in New Orleans…and some claim the best Italian restaurants in the country. We love the abiance and hospitality.
Gretchen and I have discovered Vincent’s and it has become a home away from home…Vincent greets us by name, and takes care of us as if we were part of the family…We enjoy the hospitality at minimum, on biweekly basis.
Tonight is a rebroadcast of the show Bonnie did Sunday featuring Cary and Gretchen...After the show...we will entertain calls for discussion...
Join us for stimulating conversation!

Ever wondered how you juggle being a local superhero and a parent? Ever wondered how the kids of these caped crusaders feel, watching their parents walk out the door into the dangerous night? Ever wondered about the people who don superhero costumes and visit childrens' hospitals, and the impact they have on the lives of the patients who they visit?
Well, wonder no more, as Rock and Spectre take you on a journey back in time, to hear from the people who matter most: The Kids! We'll have interviews with the children of Real Life Superheroes, we'll be chatting to people who actively work to inspire kids in their communities to live a heroic life, and we'll be talking to those people who donate their time to make the lives of sick children that little bit brighter.
Got a tale you'd like to share with us? Dial in or log on and join us in the chatroom!
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.
Karla and John continue with their interviews of the 2015 class of Urban Heroes with their interview of Pastors George and Sandra Russell. The Russells have been married for 54 years and pastors at Temple of God Church in Washington, PA for 27 years. Today the Russells join our co-hosts to talk about life, marriage, raising children and ministry. During the show, one of their children will call in to talk about her parents and their work. Once you listen, you will know why they were nominated and chosen for the latest class of Urban Heroes.
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.
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.
In John 8:1-11, Jesus has intervened on behalf of the woman, allegedly caught in the act of adultery. Jesus is determined to gain the victory. Jesus, as her intercessor, has attempted to appeal to the reasoning of the scribes and Pharisees as it concerned the actual legal language of the Mosiac Law. Jesus stooped on the ground in a position of humility but with a determination to reveal the sins of the scribes and Pharisees. Lastly, Jesus attempted to appeal to the conscience of the crowd of scribes and Pharisees with the ultimate result of gaining the woman's freedom.
When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise. For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute. 99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed. In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.
St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.
As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).
After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated. Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.
For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people. The community is still re-building 10 years later.
During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.
Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.
Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet. We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".
Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.
