Scheduled Guests

Jeffrey Hollender (Seventh Generation)

Jeffrey Hollender is a leading authority on corporate responsibility, sustainability and social equity. More than twenty years ago, he co-founded Seventh Generation and went on to build the fledgling company into a leading natural product brand known for its authenticity, transparency, and progressive business practices. Today, as an social entrepreneur, author, speaker, consultant, and activist, Jeffrey’s mission is to inspire and provoke business leaders to think differently about the role they and their companies play in society. Along the way, he’s working to drive systemic change that makes it easier for businesses to become radically more sustainable, transparent and responsible. Jeffrey’s passion for changing the negative impact that industry has on the environment and society is evident in each of his six books, including 2010′sThe Responsibility Revolution: How the Next Generation of Businesses Will Win. At the same time, Hollender has been helping millions of Americans make green and ethical product choices, beginning with his bestselling title, How to Make the World a Better Place, a Beginner’s guide. His most recent book, Planet Home: Conscious Choices for Cleaning & Greening the World You Care About Most guides consumers through the dizzying array of decisions they make each day, helping them understand which choices matter most and which have hidden repercussions. A born entrepreneur, Jeffrey’s first business ventures were in the field of education and publishing: the Skills Exchange in Toronto and Network for Learning in New York City. In 1985, after selling Network for Learning to Warner Publishing, a division of Warner Communications (now Time Warner), he was appointed president of the renamed firm, Warner Audio Publishing. In 1988, he acquired Renew America, a mail order catalog of green products, which eventually became Seventh Generation. His record of sustainable achievements and thought leadership is unparalleled in the business world. Jeffrey is an Adjunct Professor for sustainability and social entrepreneurship at New York University; co-chair of Greenpeace US; a board member of Practice Green Health; Healthcare Without Harm; and Verité, a leading international workers’ rights organization. He is also the co-founder of the American Sustainable Business Council, a coalition of 200,000 business leaders committed to changing the rules of business. He divides his time between Charlotte, VT, and New York City.

Dreaming: Omar Mateen's Love Letter To His Son....if only.... 


lisa’s blog

Lisa is presently writing her first book, “9/11 Healed Me: Finding the Silver Linings from Traumatic Events,” which will be published in 2017.

coming soon: 

the below is from Jacqueline Adair  who will be in-studio, Friday, w/Dario Hunter:

She must be stopped! Her behavior as the presiding officer of the board is both undemocratic and uninformed!
1st: she unilaterally declared that after each Board committee report no questions from board members would be allowed. She continued by saying that if board members had questions with the report, we would have to meet that committee chair after the meeting in the hall or privately contact that person by phone or email with any questions!
I challenged her on the point of the meetings and reports, including questions are public and any and all conversations about board issues must be conducted in public at our meetings.
Dario Hunter stated that this action borders on a violation of the open meetings law. No legal!
Board president Kimble went on to say that policy gives her the authority to stop other Board members from asking questions during or after committee reports.
Hunter followed by asking which policy she was referring to. Ms. Kimble responded by saying she didn't know but would check and get back to him! She then asked staff member J. Hatchner, policy specialist, about such a policy. Ms. Hatchner replied that she was not aware of one!
At some point during the volatile discussion, it was reported by people in the audience that board "President " called me a "BITCH". I did not, could not hear her because of where my seat is located compared to where she sits!
Her co-conspirator, Vice President Mike Murphy sits next to her. I am sure he heard her. Perhaps other board members as well!
I was and am appalled about the derogatory word used in a professional setting and used by a person who will challenge my use of the word "screwed" when speaking about an organization which we have hired, over the years, to the tune of $200 thousand plus dollars yearly and has among other things,
set up a STEM school at YSU in direct competition with the district's STEM school. There are other issues with this group too numerous to mention here.
As stated above, after the meeting concluded, a person from the audience approached me , apologizing about Pres. Kimble's comment. I was shocked but not surprised! She continues to stretch the limits of civility and government. She has and continues to function on a very limited knowledge of
government( unable to understand that no one person of an elected body has the singular authority to do any of the things she has done, from setting up an office in the Board building to ordering the Supt. and his employees around! Unfortunately, several of the other board members fail to operate from a knowledge base and blindly support any and all ridiculous things that she says or does. i.e "her" office, and name calling, "BITCH", interrupting me and only me to keep me from speaking. I have presented all of these things, except the "BITCH" comment before the body with no response and no action!
Ms. Kimble and the other three or four board members continue to do a disservice to the children and tax payers of the district. They have spent more time arguing with me in an effort to silence me than conducting the business of the district! In the two and a half years since I have been on the Board, very little if any discussion about the failing academics of the district have been presented at our meetings and now we have been completely taken over by the state.
This board has failed in its obligations and responsibilities to properly guide the district, academically and fiscally!
Community, where are you? Your voice and actions must be heard and expressed. This malfeasance and nonfeasance must end, if we are to save our children!
Come to board meetings! See for yourself! Express yourselves!
Be the change agent!
Remember, democracy is not a spectator sport!

Jackie Adair
Elected member
