Public School system in a time when teachers took an active role as alternate parents to those
entrusted to them daily: El-R took her first creative writing class in an After-School program
under the tutelage of Mrs. Leila BoNey. During the program, this Author's natural flair for writing
became immediately apparent to the program director thus a friendship/mentorship identity was

with a keen level of detail, which many people who have struggled through life's journey can
relate. A Poet who expresses a lifetime of observation, harmony through conflict, and ultimately
self acceptance: This openly gay author utilizes words, artistic talents, as well as photography
to lay out graphic depictions of the ups and downs of moving through society. El-R's newest

Today is as good a day as any to let you get to know even more about me. Music is one of the more personal things in a person's life, a lot of times you can tell much about a person based on the music they listen to. Since I'm new to this place, and you, my wonderful listeners, don't know me super well yet, I am going to use today's episode to play lots of songs I like for various reasons. I may talk about them and reveal what specifically I like about them, and how I feel about the lyrics, etc., from time to time but it's really going to be an opportunity for you to just chill and kick back and listen to some tunes you may not have heard before, or may not have heard in a while.
Paterson N.J. is on the verge of making a statement with the Mayoral Race like no other, there are more candidates in this race than there are starters for the Eastside High School Basketball Team.
The City Council Race is hot and getting hotter with old and new faces, old ideas and new ideas.
Andre Sayegh is still trying to buy this election and Joey Torres is planning his next big city funded payday and Jeff Jones is still confused about what a Mayor is supposed to do in office.
Donna Nelson-Ivy is putting up a hell of a campaign and Dave Gilmore is standing his ground..
Aslon Goow Sr. is making good on his word, being visible in the community and it is plain to see that his written plan has given some imitators an idea...
Passaic County Civic League is rising to the top and Mr. Charles Primus with The Pulse is beating a little slower without Lynda Gallashaw.
Tonight we will bring you all the goings on and share somethings you may not know about.
Our special guest tonight will be City Council Candidate Bernard M. Jones.
Mr. Brent Nation will give us the skinny on the P-Town sound-off.
With the passing of Ruben "Hurricane" Carter, WOL Radio Network sends prayers and condolences to the family.
in The Bible
Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.
Daniel 11:25 Also he shall stir up his power, and his courage against the King of the South with a great army, and the King of the South shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army: but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast and practice against him. 1599 Geneva Bible
