“This is gangsters, guns and drugs. I don't think it gets much scarier than this,'' said Assistant District Attorney Mary Ellen Karst in asking for the maximum prison term for Rumont TeKay, age 18, a high ranking member of a notorious street organization out of Chicago.
Like many of his peers, Rumont took to the street life at the impressionable age of 10 years old. After his initiation, he quickly climbed the ranks within the organization and became one of its largest distributors in the cocaine trade by age 18. Eight months after his eighteenth birthday, Rumont was convicted of the largest cocaine bust in the county’s history and received a minimum mandatory 35 year sentence, as a first time offender.
While his back was against the wall and hope was bleak, he found solace in the elements of another writer's storylines. His inspiration flared and Rumont TeKay put his mighty pen to paper and hasn’t let up since. Through it all, he has learned that hope never dies just as long as one breathes life into it. After six years of appeals and twelve years spent behind bars, Rumont has been released and is now on a mission to expose the atrocities dealt in the land he calls home.
An ambitious young woman, born, bread, and raised in Dallas, TX, we introduce to you M’Hogany. From a very young age, she’s put thoughts to paper and let her creative side roam free. “I wasn’t like most girls keeping journals or diaries. Whatever I thought, I put to paper.” With a few poems suggested for publishing in her early childhood, she decided to pursue other venues of artistry. “Music is my life. I eat, sleep, and breathe all things musical. You can catch me singing almost anywhere.” As she embarks on the road of literature, she delves back into writing putting it all on paper. Expect future works from this young writer and keep an ear at the ready as she embarks on her musical and literal endeavors.

In this episode of The Red Light Sports Ramble; presented by The Red Light Sports Network, Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec will talk about the Green Bay Packers traveling to New Orleans, to take on the Saints. The Packers enter the game on a four game winning streak, and a 5-2 record. The Saints are coming off a last quarter collapse, that saw them lose to the Detroit Lions. The good news for the Saints (2-4), they are 2-0 at home. When you look at Offense, the Saints are ranked 2nd in both total offense and passing (437 and 314 yards, respectively). The Green Bay Packers are ranked 25th, in total offense, and 20th, in passing offense. These stats could be a bit misleading, because you have to take into account that the offense was in cruise control for much of the fourth quarters, against the Vikings and Panthers. On Defense, the Saints are ranked 12th, in yards allowed. The Packers are right behind them at 14th. The biggest difference may be in passing yards allowed, the Packers are ranked 6th, allowing only 214.9 yards per game. The Saints have struggled stopping the pass, allowing 270.5 yards per game. Stopping the run has been a problem for both teams, particulary the Packers. However, in recent weeks they have imporved but statistically, they are still giving up 147.9 yards per game. Listen to the show to see what the keys to the game are. Fasten your seat belts and put your foot on the gas, we are previewing the Packers vs. Saints, on Sunday Night Football.
