    Melissa Mickelson Live

    in Military

    Join us this week as we welcome country music singer songwriter, Melissa Mickelson. Barbara Mandrell's classic tune "I Was Country (When Country Wasn't Cool)" pretty much sums up Melissa Mickelson. Before settling in Oregon, Melissa grew up as an Air Force brat, moving between bases in Oklahoma and Texas. Her best memories as a kid was when the family would listen to the vinyls of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. For as long as she can remember she found herself singing in her hairbrush and dreaming of being on the stage in the bright lights. Today, with the release of her self titled EP she is realizing that dream. The 4 song EP is her first attempt at studio recording and has received strong praise from the veteran Nashville musicians she was fortunate to work with. Melissa has been on a meteoric rise with her live performances, burning up the Northwest's honky tonks and bars. In the last year she has exposed thousands of people to her blend of traditional country, blues and rock and roll. Melissa's fun, high energy performances make her a fan favorite at the premier dance halls in the Portland area. Her determination and work ethic is second to none and she is on a mission to carve out her own niche in a highly competitive market. We will talk to Melissa about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Melissa Mickelson at http://www.melissamickelson.net/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with Melissa during the show (718) 766-4193. If you would like to participate in the live chat during the show, you must sign up on the show site first and then log in during the show. Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.

    KELLY O'CONNELL AM 1450: Dona Ana County Battle

    in Politics

    Much like the larger national political struggle, there is a battle raging for the soul of Dona Ana County & related Democrat Party. Sheriff Enrique Kiki Vigil ran on a platform of cleaning up corruption. Little did Billy “Golden Earing” Garrett and Wayne “Rhode Scholar” Handcock realize that the County Commission would be straight in his bulls-eye. And yet they dismissed and failed to take seriously Kiki at their peril.


    Kiki has repeatedly poked the County Commissioners in the eye over disagreements over their style. Kiki complained about lack of funding for the sheriff’s office, freedom of speech in meetings, misleading he and staff and the public over budget proposals, control of Dona Ana Correctional after jailer’s Chris Barella’s arrest, and now over suspending his staff because of complaints.


    Kiki has fought back with what he claims is the only tool left in his arsenal -- the court system -- both state and federal. He first filed a Federal case claiming the County Commision and Golden Earing Garrett repressed his first amendment rights to free expression.


     


    The tit-for-tat came to a head when Kiki arrested diminutive jailer Chris Barela over embezzlement and bringing a rifle into the jail. Kiki then took over the jail, which lasted about 3 hours. Ready to pounce on Kiki was the County manager Julia Junkyard Brown and attorney Nelson Goodin who filed a restraining order with Judge Arrietta with an attached emergency hearing. A defiant and transparently aggravated Julia Brown then delivered the coup de grace on live TV, slamming the TRO down on a live mic in front of a startled KIKI. Then she did the diva walk off shuffle.


    More occured when Kiki decided to strike back again...

    Green Bay Packers report card 2015 - Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

    in Sports

    The Green Bay Packers entered the season with high expectations, and the wide receiver corp was one of the strengths. However, Jordy Nelson tore his ACL, in the preseason. This meant that someone would need to step up and take over the role as the go to guy. The logical choice was Randall Cobb, but early in the season it was Aaron Rodgers looking for James Jones. Jones picked up were he left off before leaving in free agency. As the season went on, Jones cooled off and was not much of an impact in the playoffs. DeVante Adams entered his second year with high expectations after a spectacular post-season in 2014. He was riddled by nagging injuries and ended the  year with 50 catches, but only one touchdown. After re-signing with the Packers, Randall Cobb was suppose to be a perfect compliment to Nelson. With Nelson gone, Cobb struggled to get open and never got on the same page with Rodgers. Cobb ended the season as the top receiver with 79 catches for 829 yards. The Packers drafted Ty Montgomery and as he saw his role increase his season ended with injury. Montgomery put in the work in practice and was earning praise from the veteran Nelson. Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis had a hard time finding the field but were forced into action during the playoffs due to numerous injuries. 


    Andrew Quarless and Richard Rodgers were the top two tight ends. Rodgers may have saved the season with his hail mary catch, but did not give the Packers a dominant presence at tight end. He finished the year with a modest 58 catches and tied Jones for the team lead with eight touchdowns. Quarless had his season end early due to injury.
