One of the most helpless feelings in the world is being told your child has a congenital heart defect, will need surgery and will have a lifetime of follow-up appointments and untold future procedures. Some parents have great difficulty dealing with this kind of stress, all parents suffer post-traumatic stress syndrome after they hand their children over to a surgeon without knowing if they'll ever see their children alive again. It takes a really special parent to survive that trauma and then to turn that angst into a vehicle to help others. Our interview with Lori M. Jones will cover her involvement as a congenital heart defect advocate and an author of a book to help others in the CHD community. Join us as we find out what inspired her to reach out to help others, what her greatest challenge was in writing her book and what new projects she has on the horizon.
Lissa Warren’s father needed a retirement companion while his wife and daughter were at work. Enter Ting, a seven-pound Korat who changed his life, and the life of the family. All kittens are mischievous, but Ting “the cat grenade” was real trouble. She was also smart, endearing, and the soul of the Warren family.
In late 2008, Lissa’s father died of a heart attack. The images from that night still haunt her—especially the EKG readout ending in one long, devastating em dash. Less than a year later, Lissa and her mother stared at another EKG readout, this time for Ting. A living feline extension of the man they missed so much—the man they had tried, but failed, to save—she was diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition. The only option was to have a human pacemaker implanted in the cat—a procedure even the best animal hospital in Boston hadn’t performed in a decade. Thus they began a medical odyssey on behalf of the little gray cat who had been her father’s shadow—a journey that would prepare one of them for her own serious diagnosis. A gorgeously written memoir about grief, hope, and how pets both complicate and enrich our lives, The Good Luck Cat is a testament to the power of the human—and the feline—spirit.

Monday's Thomas Loop Radio Show features Jeff Eggleston.
Jeff's Bio from jeffreyeggleston.com -
A consistent performer and adroit racer, Jeffrey Eggleston has established himself among the nation’s brightest marathoners. He has been a fixture on U.S. national teams, running the marathon at the 2011 and 2013 World Championships, and the 2011 Pan-American Games.
Few athletes could make claim to a more quixotic journey into marathoning élite than Eggleston. After a brief and lackluster collegiate running career at the University of Virginia, Jeffrey quickly emerged as a top 10 finisher on the U.S. road racing scene. In 2009, Eggleston, sponsorless at the time, took a gamble and moved himself to Flagstaff, AZ.
Under the tutelage of Dr. Jack Daniels, he turned his attention to the marathon and made a successful, albeit quiet start to his marathoning career in 2010: debuting in 2:14 and then finishing 2nd place at the U.S. Championships.
In 2011, Jeffrey made his presence widely known by winning the Pittsburgh Marathon in spectacular fashion. Brought in by race organizers as a pacemaker for 18 miles, he finished the assignment and proceeded to hammer away from the leaders to a commanding victory. A month later, he lowered his best to 2:13 and would go on to represent the U.S. at the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea.This led to his selection to the 2013 World Championship Team, where he went on to lead the U.S. in Moscow with a commendable 13th place finish.
Is President Obama's CIA Pick John Brennan a devout Muslim? Also Kenyan Presidential Candidates promised to use "Obamacare RFID" on the people of Kenya. The Vatican may pick Canada Cardinal Marc Ouellet as the next Pope as a French Canadian. Also The Vatican Announced that Pope Benedict XVI has a pace maker and surgery was done 3 months ago. The Media has given President Obama a thumps up for his "State of the Union Address". Christopher Dorner was found dead and his remains charred in the cabin in the woods of San Bernardino County. Also North Korea and Iran are now partners in Nuclear Missile programs. Theologian Paul Begley of Indiana will discuss these and other current news events along with bible prophecy and the powerful Word of God.
Former FBI agent Ryan Hardy is brought on board as a consultant when the serial killer he arrested many years before, Joe Carroll, escapes from prison killing several guards in the process. Although Hardy caught him, he paid a heavy price. He was stabbed in the heart and lives courtesy of a pacemaker. He's also on a disability pension. Carroll was an English professor with a fondness for the works of Edgar Allen Poe. Now that he's out, Hardy is certain he will go after Sarah Fuller, his last victim who managed to survive the attack. He's correct but they realize too

According to the Carolina Peacemaker weekly newspaper, thirty-nine officers of color filed an EEOC Federal Discrimination lawsuit against the Greensboro North Caroline Police Department. The Coalition of Concerned Citizens believes that Assistant Police Chief Dwight Crott is recommending the officers for termination as a retaliatory measure. We have received reports that three officers that complained about misconduct have been terminated for non-criminal “administrative charges.” The Carolina Pacemaker reports Captain Charles Cherry was placed on administrative duty last month after assisting several of his subordinates with the filing of grievances.
The Coalition of Concerned Citizens is calling for an outside investigation of the Police Department by an independent citizen board with subpoena powers or by the Unites States Justice Department.
On Thursday September 2, 2010, we will discuss these allegation of misconduct by Greensboro Police Officials. The police officer complainants have been invited to join in the discussion.
