    Climate Ride for National Parks

    in Environment

    John Garder (pictured on far right) and Natalie Levine (center picture) from the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), call in to chat with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith, during the 2015 Climate Ride California North Coast. On the NPCA team, John and Natalie talk about the ride, and the climate change issues facing our National Park system.

    Climate Ride California is more than a bike trip – it’s an inspiring journey with like-minded people who are united by their passion for sustainability, renewable energy, and bicycles - the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation. Since 1919, the nonpartisan National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) has been the leading voice of the American people in protecting and enhancing our National Park System’s most significant lands and landmarks.

    This interview originally aired on May 18, 2015 as part of Big Blend Radio's Vacation Station Travel Radio Expo, that broadcasted live from Yerington Inn, in western Nevada.

    Lugnuts and Horsepower

    in Sports

    The best weekend of racing has passed, and what a celebration it was.  Dustin Parks and Patti Rodisch try to break down all that happened.  It started with the Indianapolis 500, as former NASCAR and F1 star Juan Pablo Montoya brought Penske back to victory lane at Indy, his second win in the grand race.


    To cap off the night, the long 600-mile marathon at Charlotte saw the victory come down to a critical stop, and who had enough fuel to make it to the finish.  It would be Carl Edwards seeing his first Charlotte win, his first with Joe Gibbs, and a sweep of Cup competition for JGR in the last two weeks at NASCAR's home track.


    In all of this, the newest list of inductees to the NASCAR Hall of Fame were announced, with a few surprises that both made the cut, while others were left to wait again.


    Finally, a look ahead to the Monster Mile, and the triple-header at Dover.  Tune in to hear it all.

    Activism - You CAN Make a Difference - Joyce E. Barrie

    in Lifestyle

    Did you know that most activism is brought about by ordinary people?  Rosa Parks, at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement, was an ordinary person. Edmund Burke said it best - "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing".  I would include good women as well.  Burke also said that "no one could make a greater mistake than he (I add she) could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little."  


    Now, more than ever, the world needs good people to rise together to protest the injustices of gender discrimination, racial discrimination, discrimination against gays and lesbians, and other forms of discrimination.  


    If you have something you believe in strongly, if you have some cause that you want to support, become an activist and lend your voice to changing the world, one person and one positive action at a time.

    IoUC: Online Civility with Peggy Parks

    in Technology

    You have probably heard of "haters" or "trolls" or "cyber-bullies."  Where did they come from?  Why do they attack?  Has the digital world of social media and mobile created a new underground culture of bad behaviour?  Join Deb and Tom as they converse with Peggy Parks, a leading civility expert form the Parks Image Group, Inc. (www.theparksimagegroup.com) about the lack of civil behaviour online and what we can do to make the Internet a safer place to express ourselves and disagree in a respectful manner with those who we do not share the same perspective.  Respecting boundaries, taking responsibility for our own online comments and conduct, and setting a good example for others are some of the topics we will hit on during the interview.


    About Peggy: Peggy Parks has the opportunity to see people in business settings as well as social ones. A key element in her observations is noticing how people treat each other. That’s how she discovered a lack of civility in the world and decided to do her part to change that.  As the Southeast’s leading Civility Expert, Peggy views good manners, the ability to listen to learn and to appreciate other viewpoints as key elements for civility. And a person who practices civility actually polishes their personal image.  Featured in numerous publications, radio and TV, Peggy is pleased to count UPS, Southern Company and The Coca-Cola Company among her clients. Peggy can be reached at Peggy@TheParksImageGroup.com or 404/266-3858.
