Truck drivers have been saying for years that, "We need more truck parking" but it seems that it took an article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to get the much needed attention of the general public.
Join us with our special guest Dave Della Maggiore, a 20 year veteran driver as he shares his interview by WSJ journalist Betsy Morris from the report entitled: Too Many Trucks,Too Little Parking. Dave will also share his thoughts about the trip with WSJ photographers and his encounter with a tired trucker at a truck stop in Clines Corners, New Mexico.
Dave and fiancée, Robin, run their active Facebook group, Give Truckers Room, educating drivers of passenger vehicles how to drive safely around semi trucks.
Also joining us will be Nicholas Carretta, President and CEO of UltraShipTMS which specializes in transportation and technology solutions. UltraShipTMS quickly responded to the WSJ article and addressed the serious parking shortage in their own article, “Use YMS to Combat Truck Parking Crisis" which stated:
"Keeping drivers off of public streets, freeway ramps and vulnerable, remote parking places like abandoned lots is a laudable goal. It is also one that logistics as an industry is going to be forced to address."
Mr. Carretta will discuss the UltraYMS tool, allowing the logistics sector to take an active and responsible part in the truck parking shortage solution.
With the shortage of safe and secure parking for our nation's truck drivers back in the news, join us as we discuss the dangers drivers face every day because of the lack of safe truck parking availability.
Who is responsible for putting drivers at added risk? Where are the most difficult areas to find truck parking? How are regulations adding to the already dangerous parking situations? Who doesn't want to see more available truck parking?
Our guests include Hope Rivenburg of Jason's Law, Desiree Wood of Real Women in Trucking and our special guests, Ashley Boeglin and David Clark, wife and father-in-law of Michael Boeglin.
We will also review some startling results of the 2013 National Truck Parking Survey led by Hope and the detailed data analysis performed by Ms. Wood.
Join us for this very important broadcast.

On the brink of potential disaster that could interfere with the food distribution system, growing your own food is now essential. It is time in the northern hemisphere for selecting the non-GMO heirloom seeds, and for preparing to feed the soil for an organic garden. Plan to save food and seeds for the future. You can grow sprouts, lettuce and other crops indoors in winter, even build a greenhouse.
If we are to survive economic collapse, earth changes, social changes, public poisons and the implementation of tyranny and Agenda 21, cooperative preparedness in a community support system is crucial.

HELLO FAMILY: I'M REDOING THE SHOW IT WAS ALL CUT OFF!
Water in Toledo, Ohio, and surrounding areas remained officially undrinkable Sunday evening, more than 36 hours after a do-not-drink order went into place for 500,000 people.
Water at a Toledo treatment plant tested positive for a toxin on Saturday, leading the governor to declare a state of emergency in three counties, state officials told the Los Angeles Times.
UPDATE: Toledo's mayor lifts ban
At a Sunday morning news conference, Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins said more results from new tests on the water would be available around noon. "This is not over yet," he said.
But noon came and went with no test results. In the evening, the Toledo Blade and other local media reported that Collins had announced that the test results would not be available until 10 p.m. local time at the earliest. A few hours later, the test results were pushed back until "at least 1:15 a.m.," a Blade reporter tweeted.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich declared a state of emergency for residents of Lucas, Wood and Fulton counties early Saturday after two water samples from a Toledo treatment plant tested positive for microcystin, a toxin possibly caused by an algae bloom in Lake Erie.
Carol Hester, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, told The Times on Sunday morning that water samples from the Collins Water Treatment Plant is still waiting for some of the results.

UpFront: The Watchman n Warrior look at World Events and Prophecy in this time of the biblical scan of these last days.
On our Second hour and Third hour is an extended teaching on Held in Contempt of the Lord's Court of Justice Pt2. We will begin with 2 Peter 2 and look at those false prophets and teachers who bring in damnable heresies, making merchandise of those who hear them. There is no shortage of covetousness in America, nor of those in religion who feel the need to polish this.
The trouble we face is a lack of belief in a God that will judge all men. We blame God, turning against God because of reasons that in our little mind make it okay. The truth is, America will be judged. The people in this land will be judged, and the judgment will begin at the house of God.

n Colorado Springs, 700 children currently reside in a shortage of 200 foster homes. Foster parents are not employed to care for the children in their home; they volunteer.
Reimbursement payments cover a portion of housing, food and clothing costs, but many foster parents use their own funds to give the children the same clothes or opportunities as their biologic children.
Foster parents are overwhelmed. They must regularly keep in contact with the court and the system that oversees the welfare of each child. They not only feed and shelter children, but they ensure regular contact with their biological families, take children to therapies, court appointments, and doctor appointments. They desire to provide stability, nurture and a sense of community for each child. If there is more than one child in foster care in the family, the burden is multiplied. Foster parents often run out of personal resources or time to provide more than just the basics.
Foster parents find it difficult to persist. Some foster care agencies in Colorado Springs lose 30-50% of family foster homes each year. It is difficult work, with little incentive or reward. People who foster are increasingly isolated and frustrated. Those who hang in there are amazingly committed – but there are far too few of them.
If foster parents were to get a little help and support from their community, they would be able to continue to fulfill this important need. If extra hands could help share in all the tasks and duties, more time would be available for the foster parents to create the stable, nurturing, enriched environments in their homes that promote healing.
That is where Fostering Hope comes in. We provide those supports to foster families, so they can persist in doing the difficult task of fostering children who have challenging needs.
