    The Potential of Music Festivals to Build Community

    in Non-Profit

    When Gallup and the Knight Foundation set out to answer the question “What attaches people to their communities?” they found that the key reasons cited by residents for loving their cities were entertainment and social offerings, how welcoming the city is and its aesthetics — in other words, the arts and culture.  That finding was not news to Alderman Michael Scott, Jr., or his wife Natashee.  The couple have been patrons of the arts for years.  In an effort to build community and make North Lawndale a destination for arts and entertainment, the Scotts started the annual Westside Musical Festival, which will run again on August 20 2016.


    Join Natashee and Michael Scott, Jr. as they share lessons learned in developing the festival. We will discuss ways the Westside Music Festival is being used to build community; develop a sense of place for North Lawndale and to spur economic development and tourism.

    Premier Broadcast - What are we and how can we help?

    in Entrepreneur

    Facing life at 50 with less than $100K in the bank is not an uncommon thing and the average is around $87,000.00.  We followed our heritage and invested in cds, stocks, 401Ks and IRS that are making less that they ever have.  


    I started to research what other options are out there.  The stumbliing block for most of us is that most financial institutions want a minumum of $10,000.00 or more to start building your portfolio.  For years I thouroughly believed this and let my money get exhauted and rott in 401Ks.  


    What I have found is that there are many ways to start with as little as $25 dollars and these avenues have varying risk but even least risky investment is making 13% and above.  In my case I took a bit riskier approach and have reaped 150% gains.  I know this sounds like many folks out there trying to steal your money but I am an average Joe and it does work.  


    Having the confidence to take that first step and dip the toe in the water paralized me for over 30 years.  Now that I jumped in I can really say "the water's better than fine".  Setting up multiple streams based on my palate for risk has allowed me to support my self without working for 9 months, produced enough revenue to invest in other avenues and even buy a small marketing franchise.


    Within the next three years I hope to totally become social security free.  And of course I want to share this with those that want a path or a roadmap.  It is not hard and I will help all I can as I now do not feel as chained to an existance of working for others.

    "The Slave Across the Street" - Sex Trafficking

    in Parents

    Today our guest is Theresa Flores, who was offered a ride home by a fellow classmate when she was 15 years old living in an upper middle class suburb. The boy's raping her escalated to her becoming sex trafficked. Within a few weeks she was entrenched in the industry still living at home. She tried her best to continue living a "normal" life. Coming from a devout catholic family, and religious herself she was unable to share her experience with her family or anyone else.


    Theresa Flores LSW, MS
    Human Trafficking Survivor, Best Selling Author, Victim’s Advocate, Founder of S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution)

    Ms. Flores has been a licensed Social Worker for over twenty years. She received a Master’s in Counseling Education from University of Dayton and a Bachelor’s of Social Work from Ball State University. Ms. Flores was appointed to the Ohio Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Commission in 2009 and has testified before the Ohio House and Senate in supports of Human Trafficking Legislation. Her efforts were a major part of the success of these bills being passed into laws. In January 2012 at the State of the State Address, Ms. Flores received The Courage Award from Ohio Governor Kasich for her work in human trafficking. She also has received the 2013 Christian Service Award, the highest award given by the University of Dayton’s Alumni Association for her work with SOAP.

    Episode 532: Christian/Political commentary on the news and current events!!!

    in Politics Conservative

    Liberals and progressives are very good at framing an argument so it tugs at peoples heart strings. Case in point, Child poverty in America. Progressives rarely call it just good old fashioned poverty, where everyone in the family is affected, that would not pull at your heart strings and cause you to look for a central government solution. So they cherry pick stories with the narrative about child poverty and the stats that are associated with them. They never look and see if there are other studies and stories that contradict their narrative.


    It's like a story I read in this months Spiritual Sword, about the man who would shoot at something then draw a bulls-eye around it. When you go into research anything with a preconceived outcome, that is exactly what your doing!!! You pick whatever topic is near and dear to a liberal/progressive's heart and more times then not they shoot first then draw a bulls-eye around it and call it settled fact!!!

    We Are Bringing Up Our Kids In The Klu Klux Klan

    in Entertainment

    HARRISON, AR—When six former Confederate officers gathered in the winter of 1865 to establish a private social club, none of them could have dreamed that their small group would one day grow into America’s preeminent white nationalist organization, one that embodies the values of faith, family, and community that have always been the bedrock of this great country.


    But today, the order of the Ku Klux Klan has become so much more than just a  small club of devoted white Americans. The modern KKK has evolved past its humble beginnings into a thriving coalition of the country’s brightest and boldest, a swelling army of individuals dedicated to preserving and celebrating white culture. And with its membership rolls growing on a daily basis, no one can deny that the KKK is back on top, fully in charge, and looking confidently toward the future.
