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.

PUT UP A FIGHT!
THE THIEF COMES TO STEAL YOUR JOY, YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR SPOUSE, YOUR MONEY, YOUR LIFE! PUT UP A FIGHT!!
John 10:10 (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
AS A CHILD OF GOD, THE ENEMY WILL ATTEMPT TO CHALLENGE YOUR RIGHT TO THE ABUNDANT LIFE CHRIST DIED FOR YOU TO HAVE BUT YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO OVERCOME HIM. EVERY BATTLE YOU FACE IS CONQUERABLE! GOD WILL NOT LET ANY CHALLENGE COME TO YOU THAT YOU CANNOT WIN!
1 Corinthians 10:13The Message (MSG)
13 No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; He’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.
RESIST, PERSIST, PUT UP A FIGHT!! YOU HAVE ALREADY WON BY CHRIST JESUS!

For the past 26 years, the Bathroom Readers’ Institute has led the movement to stand up for those who sit down and read in the bathroom (and everywhere else, for that matter).
Throne-room bibliophiles have cause for celebration: the 26th edition of Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader® releases this fall, and more than ever, this one promises to be Perpetually Pleasing.
Uncle John’s Perpetually Pleasing Bathroom Reader may be the best collection yet of the world's weirdest and most fascinating facts and stories. Not bad, in a series that has sold more than 15 million copies since its debut in 1988.
"I'm quite proud of Perpetually Pleasing,” says Gordon “Uncle John” Javna, publisher of Portable Press. “It's full of everything that our readers love about this series: humor, history, trivia, and a lot of weird stuff."

Denis Waitley was the VERY FIRST Self Improvement author I followed. I bought "Psychology of Winning" and it helped set my path in the right direction. Today's show I am sharing part of a LIVE talk he gave several years ago. Denis Waitley's theories on human potential have made him one of America's most sought-after speakers and best-selling audiocassette program authors. Denis honed his understanding of leadership, discipline and motivation at an early age as a Naval Academy graduate. This background and advanced studies have served him well in his long career as a motivational researcher, counselor, consultant and speaker.
Denis has worked with groups as diverse as medical researchers, top executives, returning POWs and Olympic athletes. The focus of his work has always been on helping people bring out the best in themselves and their organizations.
He is the author of many best selling books, including The Psychology of Winning, Being the Best, Seeds of Greatness, and The New Dynamics of Winning. He is also the author of the best-selling audiocassette programs: The Psychology of Winning, The Inner Winner, The New Dynamics of Winning, Being the Best and The Psychology of Human Motivation. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
