  • Lester On Fire With Deadline Near, Bears Go To Camp, NFC North Preview: Vikings

    in Sports

    The Cubs took 2 out of 3 against the Rockies, thanks to a dominant performance on the mound from Jon Lester.  As they head to Milwaukee for a 4 game series vs the Brewers, their bats and bullpen still need help.  With the trade deadline one day away, other teams are making moves while the Cubs stand pat. 


    The Bears began training camp today hoping to build on the chemistry that old teammates and new built during minicamps and OTAs.  Can John Fox unite this ragtag group and bring them back to Soldier Field ready to surprise the NFL?


    Tonight I'll also begin taking a closer look at the NFC North rivals, starting with the Minnesota Vikings.  What can we expect from the purple and gold in 2015?

    Israel preparing for the coming of her Messiah

    in Religion

    Soon the world will enter the period of time described in Daniel as "a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation." A time when humanity will find itself under the rule of a one world government with a wicked tyrant at its helm. A tyrant who the Bible teaches will be controlled by the devil himself. God’s judgment will fall in a fashion and intensity never known to man before.


    True, born again Christians are not under the wrath of God. They have obeyed His Word and accepted the gift of salvation for their sins through the blood atonement of Jesus Christ.  The reason for the Rapture of the Bride of Jesus is that the Bridegroom returns to take His Bride to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.

    The Dr. Pat Show - Talk Radio To Thrive By!

    in Spirituality

    Voices of Women with Host Kris Steinnes. Sonya Lea shares her powerful new memoir .Wondering Who You Are.  In the twenty-third year of their marriage, Sonya Lea’s husband, Richard, went in for surgery to treat a rare appendix cancer. When he came out, he had no recollection of their life together: how they met, their wedding day, the births of their two children. All of it was gone, along with the rockier parts of their past—her drinking, his anger. Richard could now hardly speak, emote, or create memories from moment to moment. Who he was wasn't.Wondering Who You Are braids the story of Sonya and Richard’s relationship, those memories that he could no longer conjure, together with his fateful days in the hospital—the near-death experience and eventual traumatic brain injury. It follows the couple through his recovery as they struggle with his treatment, and through a marriage no longer grounded on decades of shared experience. As they build a fresh life together, as Richard develops a new personality, Sonya is forced to question her own assumptions, beliefs and desires, her place in the marriage and her way of being in the world. With radical candor and honesty, Sonya Lea has written a memoir that is both a powerful look at perseverance in the face of trauma and a surprising exploration into what lies beyond our fragile identities.

    Got Me Like Tyler Hansbruhhhh

    in Basketball

    Rich Cho once again ripped Doug and David out of their vacation to talk about the Hornets seemingly endless offseason. The Hornets added a fifth big that will be familiar to some local fans, all too familiar for some that aren't fans of Carolina Blue. Former Pacer, Raptor and yes...Tarheel...Tyler Hansbrough trades it all in for teal and purple but questions swirl around the 15th man on the roster. Does he make up for the loss of Bismack Biyombo? Is this just a stunt to put fans in the seats?


    PLUS we discuss who has the most to lose and most to gain when training camp starts in late September. And we announce what we'll be up to in August while we take another on-air break.


    Make sure to subscribe to us on iTunes and have full episodes, stingers and more downloaded automatically (we wouldn't mind a five-star review either.)

    THE AUTHORS WORDS on the World Of Ink Network

    in Books

    JD Holiday talks with the author Debbie Roppolo. She is the author of many short stories including being published in Chicken Soup for the Coffee Lover's Soul, and Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul.  Klutzin’Around the Christmas Tree was the title for an anthology. In 2011 Debbie published her first children's book, Amelia Frump and her Peanut Butter Loving, Overactive Imagination which she patterned the character "Amelia" after her own childhood. In 2013, Amelia Frump...is Cooking Up a Peanut Butter Storm won second place in the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards. Her book, He's My Brother focuses on how siblings sometimes feel alone after a diagnosis of autism.


    After Debbie's son, Joseph was diagnosed with autism, she felt the need to raise awareness about the disorder and become an advocate through her writing. Doing research and conversations with her older son Jonathan, she discovered that siblings sometimes feel alone after a diagnosis of autism. There is little focus on their thoughts and emotions, and they are are forced to cope alone.


    He's My Brother was written with the intent of bringing awareness to this situation in addition to supplying information about autism.
