ENVISION THIS: Combining the best practices from history and around the world to create a modern, rural micropolis in Central Maine, USA
Our guest, Tracy Gayton of Dover Foxcroft, Maine, envisions The Piscataquis Village Project as such a settlement “evolving organically and growing incrementally” and, so far, he has raised over 1/5 of the $2 million required funds to get it started.
The Piscataquis Village Project “was founded to establish the first compact, car free village in the United States...Though our project will not construct buildings, we will draft the street plan and simple design code, based on the best of traditional practices, that will guide the build-out of the site. Attached, durable and fire resistant buildings, no taller than a walkable height, will front on narrow streets, with continuous arcaded sidewalks offering shelter for the elderly and mobility challenged. Buildings will be arranged to create plazas, serving as markets and democratic meeting places for all classes of people, and will surround interior courtyards for more private space. All destinations will be within convenient walking distance, with vehicles garaged at the village perimeter. 375 acres of garden space, sufficiently sized for each household to raise a significant amount of food, will encompass the developed zone…The green belt, other than the area designated for vehicle parking, would also be a zone for allotment gardens, small scale agriculture, playing fields, outdoor recreation and park-like green space.
Is the Piscataquis Village Project a promising way to combine the resilient, equitable, and Earth-friendly qualities essential for a sustainable future with the best of rural and village lifestyles of the past? Let’s question and listen to its planner, Tracy Gayton, to find out.
The state of the education system, whether it's public or charter, is in serious need of help. For this reason we are replaying this show again to raise awareness of a few of the issues going on in charter schools. Kicking off the show is "Style Avenue" with Arielle. She will get you up to date on what's going on in the fashion world whether it's on the runway, at an event or on the streets. Then tune in as Mr. Yancey discusses "What's going on in charter schools?". Regardless of whether it's public, private or charter schools, our students deserve a nurturing, stable learning environment. Unfortunately, that is not the case in some schools that are suppose to be an alternative to public schools. What are your thoughts about this?

Helping High School students athletes to get considered for and accepted at colleges and universities is our Mission. We offer parents, coaches, schools, business community and anyone else that influences the life of a student athlete, the tools and resources they need to advance their academic and athletic pursuits.
BEYOND FINDING THE RIGHT SCHOOL
Student athletes not only want to get into a college or university, they also are looking for scholarship opportunities. Identifying student athletes that are capable of garnering scholarship opportunities isn't simple. In an arena of just over 7 million High School students athletes only 2% of those students will receive some level of scholarship.
In this competitive arena MYP2P is the first and only social network that brings coaches, players and pros together to help kids reach their goals and realize their dreams. We will work tirelessly to help make the connections and foster the athletic excellence that's required to get recognized by Colleges, Universities, Scouts and Coaches.
A great show hosted by a great teacher, who has been enlightening students (and adults) for over 30 years.
Join this lively discussion of how our schools work, the down-side of unions, administrators, and progressives, and how common core is indoctrination.
Georgia rap legend Sonny Spoon is an extremely diverse artist with many talents. Born and raised in the city of Macon, Sonny Spoon has worked diligently to make a name for himself and put his city on the map. His career began at the tender age of 14 when he started performing at local talent shows and gaining the confidence of his peers and elders as a creative story teller through music. His lyrics reflect the pain of young black males being raised in the deep south and the trials they endure while seeking to maintain a positive perspective and become successful. No stranger to the streets, Sonny’s music truly imitates the life he lives.
As an independent artist Sonny has recorded a total of nine albums and has collaborated with hip hop heavy weights such as T.I., Cee-lo Green, Field Mob, 8-Ball & MJG, Bun-B and Young Jeezy. He is also globally known for his hit single "The Dirty Bird," written for the Atlanta Falcons during their Super Bowl run in 1998. His new album Back to Work was released in 2011.
Sonny Spoon was well on his way to stardom when his career was suddenly derailed because of his incarceration for narcotics and weapons possession in 2003. Upon his release from the federal prison system, Sonny Spoon has been on a mission to ensure that other young people are aware of the consequences of bad decision making. He has worked diligently with public schools, non-profit organizations and many independent agencies that would allow him to share his testimony as a deterrent for at risk youth.
