He was Boston's education City Councilor. Then when John Connolly stepped down to run for mayor, his heart and head stayed with schools. Even after he lost that race, he rebounded to a new focus, one he calls his mission.
He founded the 1647 organization (its website has no real content yet).He has his vision, has begun staffing up, and has a pilot underway involving students, parents and teachers. He is off tweaking the schools one kid at a time.
Connolly joins us to explain how intensive home visits by teachers find out how each student learns best and what the parents and teachers can do to foster that.
The nascent project gets some funding from Chris Gabrieli and his National Center on Time & Learning. For his part, Connolly is serious as ever. He has turned down offers from law first and others and he swears he won't run for any office. He’ll tell us what results he's seen, how the system works and what his aims are.

Listen in to the audio of our children's book which is a metaphor of a real life story of love, friendship, perseverance and everlasting bonds. Juba Kali narrates and Denise Thompson stars as Tori the caterpillar/butterfly.
The video entitled, “French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl” is an animation for the first book collaboration between Cary and Gretchen. The (as-of-yet) unreleased DVD also features Allie Moffet as Lebeau, the Corgi, from the Lower 9th Ward, Steven Wilson who holds the role of Kendall, the mighty owl from the Pacific North West, who guides these friends, and Juba Kali who performed magnificently as the narrator. A heartwarming story loved by children and adults…

Denise is an accomplished actress, salon owner and hair artist, wonderful mother and all around talented woman with a glowing heart and inspirational philosopher on the beauty of daily life.

Every Sunday at 6:30 PM EST, Dr. Lord Grantham Taylor, Hughes J.d., L.c.m.D., Ph.D. (Grantham), explores the 1930 Geneva Convention International bankruptcy and its contemporary effects on our society. He also analyses the necessity of his four foundation bankruptcy platform planks of health, sovereignty, solvency, and afianchetto. These planks include talking about bankruptcy money issues, e.g., Federal Reserve exemption account accessable fees which help those in need along with detailed information regarding all currency.
Grantham, having been a contracts expert for many years is presently a retired trust lawyer with his family as the eminent Bauer-Rothschild clan that gleans his Lordship as one Baron von Bauer-Rothschild. That credibility and his Self-Realization experience in India many years ago displays his particular brand of intelligently illuminating yet glib presentation. Along with his journalist "side-kick" Gabriella Foster, they bring a fun atmosphere to seemingly lugubrious salient subjects effecting our world today. Come join this "dynamic duo" and learn about important information necessary in negotiating our way in a venue of confusion at times. Clear and cogent insightfulness genuinely will enable many to free themselves from the political ignorance around them. Much of this ignorance remains the problems of not knowing the Uniform Commercial code (UCc) and its lawful presence in the international courts. We know that the courts remain mostly in denial of the UCc. Grantham explains rightfully so as of the bankruptcy embarrassment and potential handgun revolution concern. He adds that provocative positions are unnecessary and working together gathering wisdom instead of adversarialism. Again, join this perfect recumbentibus team extrapolating a more powerfully pithy political posture found nowhere else.

This week on Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After, We are honored and pleased to have Bonnie Kaye come on the show as a host to interview Gretchen and I. Bonnie was the original patron of the Heroes of Katrina show we did several years ago. Without her support, wisdom, advise, and encouragement, the show would likely have never been, nor would be, now.
Cary met Bonnie through her efforts to support literally hundreds of independent authors who faced significant losses in revenue due to the fraudulant practices of Airleaf Publishing. Over the years she has become a close friend to both Cary and Gretchen.
We are excited to have Bonnie on as a host...this show brings us back around to where we started in 2010. So please join us Wednesday evening for a show where Cary and Gretchen give their "Then and Now" account and discuss new and upcoming projects with Bonnie Kaye.
Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years after: Bonnie Kaye: Our Children and Heroine
Tuesday, March 3rd at 8:00 pm, EST, 7:00 pm, CST, 6:00 pm, MST, and 5:00 pm, PST.

Since Hurricane Katrina, the onslaught of heroine into St. Bernard Parish has increased to nearly epidemic proportions. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that in 2009, the drug induced death rate in Louisiana was higher than the national average. For the 2004 - 2008 time period, St. Bernard Parish in Louisiana had the 5th highest rate of drug poisoning deaths in the country, at 48 deaths per 100,000 population.
Our guest, Bonnie Kaye, lost her daughter to heroine. Bonnie’s grieving began years before her daughter Jennifer stuck a needle in her arm for one last high.
“My daughter was dying for a long period of time,” Kaye, an Oxford Circle resident, said recently. “You are dying for a long time before the actual death comes.”
Kaye shares the heartbreaking story of her daughter’s overdose death in 2002 with her new book Jennifer Needle in Her Arm: Healing from the Hell of My Daughter’s Addiction.
Writing is familiar territory for Kaye, a relationship counselor and author of eight books who also operates the Northeast GED Center, in Philadelphia. But that experience, as well as the passage of 12 years, didn’t make her latest book any easier to write.
Please join us for a compelling and emotional look at an American tragedy.
