SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
We all have experiences in our past where we wish we hadn't said or done something. Occasionally, that experience has been so traumatizing that we fear we might never recover from it. Many of us go through life carrying around guilt and shame from the past, so much so that it affects every choice that we make. We hold on to secrets because we are sure that, if someone found out, we might never be able to look that person in the face again. We fear that we would never get a second chance.
In this episode, you will hear my interview with the former governor of New Jersey, James McGreevey on the subject of, Second Chances – Recovering From and Learning to Thrive after Seemingly Ruinous Situations.
You may remember Governor McGreevey from his 2004 national press conference where he resigned from office and announced to the world "My truth is that I am a gay American." You may also have read his book, The Confession, where he literally laid bare his soul for all of the world to disect.
It has been nearly 10 years since that pronouncement and much has changed since then, both for him personally and in the world in general. He is now the Executive Director of the Jersey City Employment & Training Program and has been instrumental in creating a city run program focused on assisting former inmates on returning to society. He has found a way to move through the past use his experiences to serve a population that often gets overlooked in our society, women who are addicts, and ex convicts who are coming out of the penal system and trying to make it in mainstream society.
It was a facinating conversation and nothing was off limits. And my hope is that his experiences, and the work he does today, can show us, that no matter what we've done in the past, there are second chances in life and that we can recover and live happy and fulfilling lives.

No Hannah Montana
for Disgraced Governor
Did former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey try to bribe his way backstage a Hannah Montana concert? Yes, says WZAP Radio host Zachary Sang, who happened upon the disgraced pol at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., last year – and whose tale is recounted in the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column.
“I was at a Hannah Montana concert and [McGreevey] was trying to bribe the security guard to let him [backstage],” the student at Wayne Valley High School in nearby Wayne, N.J. – tells Dr. Blogstein’s Radio Happy Hour host Dr. Blogstein on this week’s edition of the show.
“They wouldn’t let him in, though. I carry my tape recorder with me everywhere I go where I think people are going to be around. So when he was done talking to the security guard by the door, I inched my way in, put my recorder in his face and started asking questions. I asked him why he was at a Hannah Montana concert and he just said that his daughter was there somewhere. But I didn’t see [her] anywhere," adds Zach, 15, who documented the interview on tape and later wrote about it in his school newspaper.
Jim, whose 2006 memoir, The Confession, chronicles the rise and falls of his political career, resigned from office in 2004 after admitting he’d “engaged in an adult consensual affair with another man.”
September is National Recovery Month. Join us for a special “Live From Trenton” broadcast as we discuss the work being done by the Governor’s Council on Alcohol and Drug Addiction in NJ by putting the spotlight on the Council’s 22 Annual Summit at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick.
We will speak with two of the principals participating in this event as we explore the important work being done to help individuals overcome addiction and educate others on the available resources for prevention.
Our guests will include former NJ Governor James McGreevey. He works with the women of the Integrity House Program at the Hudson County Correctional Center. McGreevey presently guides and directs the Integrity House initiative's spiritual counseling as well as works with the women upon discharge to secure mentoring; a continued commitment to principles of recovery; and, reintegration into the Hudson County community.
We will also talk with Benjamin John Chin, a keynote speaker at the event. Now 25 years old, Chin has been in recovery since age 19. He is currently a senior at Rutgers University majoring in Public Health and Linguistics, and plans to pursue a law degree with his sights set on influencing domestic health policy in the near future. All of Ben’s involvement on campus contributed to his development as a leader making it possible for him to become a founding member of the non-profit organization Young People in Recovery, which is a grassroots advocacy organization that mobilizes the voice of young people in recovery from addiction.
The Governor’s Council on Alcohol and Drug Addiction executes three core functions: policy and planning; public awareness and education; and, the administration of the Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Program.

FLORIDIANS CALL TO ACTION - NO MORE TOLLS! SIGN PETITION TODAY!
Guest: Chris Wills -No More Tolls - Florida Constitutional Amendment - Petition
Join the effort to give Floridians the power to vote on tolls! www.NoMoreTolls.us
Roads that have existed for decades without tolls, are having tolls added to them across Florida in communities including Miami-Dade, Tampa, Jacksonville and Orlando.
By 2020, Florida will have spent well over $6 BILLION to impose tolls on working families across the state, instead of investing those dollars into other long-term solutions to our transportation issues. [SOURCE: http://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/op-ed/article18800652.html#/tabPane=tabs-b0710947-1-1]
There is NO state-wide legal cap on tolls. Without a cap, tolling authorities could charge $20, $30 or even $40 for tolls. Like FB https://www.facebook.com/events/776157685838004/
Toll Abuse is Nationwide!
Guest: Bob Ahlers - "Pain at the Toll Plaza"
Bob Ahlers. In 2000, Bob joined a New Jersey ad-hoc committee called Citizens Against Tolls, or CAT, whose goal was the elimination of tolls on the New Jersey Garden State Parkway. In 2001, the elimination of tolls became a gubernatorial campaign issue when Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler announced that if elected, he would eliminate Parkway tolls in nine months. His opponent, Woodbridge Mayor James McGreevey, responded by also promising to eliminate Parkway tolls. McGreevey won the election but quickly reneged on his pledge and actually added tolls on the Parkway. Bobahlers@optonline.net
Senator McGreevey had hired an Israeli man who wasn't qualified for the job he was hired for. Though he was qualified for the job that McGreevey had in mind. This prompted a serious scandal that forced Senator McGreevey to resign and publicly admit that he's a homosexual. Though his wife was angry, the threesome with a male coworker before they go involved should have been a clue that something was wrong.
