We're Still chasing The Wrong Dragon

Everyday we're hearing about the ' opioid epidemic'. The blame game, most often, wants to demonize physicians for prescribing pain medication. Physicians are no more to blame for heroin deaths than gay men for the 'aids epidemic' ,or Blacks for the 'crack epidemic' . I realize I'll make no friends ...

Pete's Parade

Last week, legendary area broadcaster, Pete Gabriel was in studio with his lovely wife,Sandy! I had the best time with them both....and,of course, learned a lot. We talked about Pete's journey to Youngstown, and to WKBN radio Sandy(after some initial reluctance to chat) really opened up about what it was ...

"Louie, I'm Losing My Mind..."

I have a friend who tells me that his brain is no longer his ally . He tells me that he knows he's 'losing it', yet no one around him wants to believe it. His memory is fading...he gets "lost in time" and fears for the future, the near future. ...

"My Mom is Dying. If You Pray, Please Pray for Her..."

I received this from  a  friend: "My mom is dying. If you pray, please pray for my mom..." -from a friend my age. We always think of how awful it is when young people lose their parents.  Someone loses mom when they were 6...someone loses their dad just before high ...

The Democrats and Republicans Win AGAIN or The 1st Gentleman of the United States of America

Today, I spoke with a dear friend who said, "When Hillary wins, Bill will be First Gentleman !"   Former president, William Jefferson Clinton, came to 'our community' recently  - now, let's be honest, what's the first thing we think of when we hear Bill's name:   Infidelity? The disappearing cigar? ...

Donnie Died... No More Walk and Talks

Untitled document I attempted to post a blog a few days ago - only the title posted: 151,600 People Die Every Day...  Recently, I had stopped by a shoppe that I frequent and heard that a friend of mine, Donnie, was ill. I called him, no answer...texted him: Are you ...
