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.
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.
We're back! After a month off the air, Mrs. Barbara Moore and City On A Hill is back. We will take a lookk at 2014 in review of what has been some of the highlights of the year. We will speak about what is ahead and hope that you along with us will be encouraged and emboldened to fight for America's future being played out in the minds of children. It is not a fight we want but unfortunately this is what happens when free p eople forget that the price of their freedom is vigilance. There being informed is most important as the other sides uses lack of information or access to the truth as a prime tool. Funny how things do not change--it worked in the garden of Eden and it still works today. Join us as together we can make a difference.

This morning we have a returning guest, Mr. Lou Giovanetti.
Lou is a Bronx-bred New Yorker and THE Beach Cities’ bel canto.
He is a Broadway stage, screen, TV actor and Big Band front man and loves singing the Great American Songbook and jazz classics that instantly connect and move people. Lou is inspired by Sinatra and Bennett and leans on the legacy of the great Jazz-era musicians and song stylists and celebrates them with fresh arrangements and modern twists.
As he has for the last several years, Lou headlined the annual Pier Plaza New Year’s Eve Celebration last week.
In addition, Lou recently soft-opened his namesake restaurant, Lou’s on the Hill, and is currently ramping up for the Grand Opening later this month.
The kitchen will be helmed by Executive Chef Eric Mickle and the inventive modern-meets-rustic menu features Italian cuisine inspired by California's seasonal bounty and local purveyors.
Crudo plates, house cured charcuterie, handmade pastas, artisanal cheeses, wood-fired pizza, delectable desserts, select Italian and Californian wines, craft cocktails, small plates, big flavor and sharable entrees are all created and paired for your tasting pleasure.
Chef Mickle, a San Diego native, honed his culinary skills and operations savvy opening restaurants in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Singapore working for legendary chefs and the food world's leading lights including Michael Mina, Mario Batali and most recently, Gordon Ramsey, before taking the reins at Lou's.
The 4500 square foot space offers a private dining room for special occasions, fully tech equipped with a wide screen for every occasion.
Lou has been a busy guy and this morning, we’ll spend the hour catching up with him.
