A personal note to you:
I'd like to thank you for visiting my blog page. I search for content that's entertaing and informative. Radio is evolving before your ear's - and now before your eyes! After a long radio career away from Chicago I feel so blessed to have come full circle, back where it all began... here at V-103.
Plenty of people talk the talk - but Mother Betty Price in Englewood has walked the walk. Every week for nearly 25 years Mrs. Price has managed to feed 5-thousand folks a month!
Feed, Clothe, and Help the Needy (FCHN) www.fchnprogram.com has never turned down a family or individual that needed food or clothing. She and her husband Deacon Price lost their home "twice" to keep the doors open. Help them if you're able http://www.fchnprogram.com/ Also, if you know of others who are quietly doing great things in the community please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a voicemail at 312 540-2386.
I love quotes from all people, it could be Dr. Felder at New Faith in Matteson someone like Ghandi. Although the one that always seems to stop me in my tracks is this one:
"Lots of people want to ride with you in the Limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the Limo breaks down."

During an interview with The Daily Beast, Freeman criticized Republicans for their tactics and believe the political party has damaged its reputation.

One of Hollywood’s most revered said this week that the recent government shutdown had less to do with Republican objection to liberal policy or reluctance to incur more debt, and more to do with anti-Obama sentiment that rose to the level of racism. During an interview on CNN, actor and director Robert Redford first expressed sympathy for President Obama: “I think he’s a good man. I think he’s an intelligent man, a compassionate man who can’t function in that environment.” SEE ALSO: New congressional fight emerges; GOP braces for battle on sequesters He then spoke of the partisan atmosphere on Capitol Hill — finding fault especially with those on the right. “It’s so divided now with the people that are so narrow and so limited that they would take us back into the past,” Mr. Redford said, as United Press International reported. “And I was trying to figure out, why are these people behaving so stupidly? Why are they behaving so horribly that it’s crippling our whole country? Mr. Redford, 77, then answered his own question. “I think it has to do with fear. I think it’s a group of people that are so afraid of change, and they’re so narrow-minded that some people — when they see change coming — get so threatened by change, they get angry and they get terrorized and then they get vicious. I think that’s who these people are. They’re so afraid of change that they’re behaving miserably,” he said, as UPI reported. And then he dropped the “r-word,” alleging racism. Mr. Redford said, UPI reported: “There is a body of congressional people that wants to paralyze the system. I think what sits underneath it, unfortunately, is there’s probably some racism involved, which is really awful. I think just the idea of giving credit to this president, giving him credit for anything, is abhorrent to them so they’ll go against it. … They’re representing their own self-interests, which is very narrow and in some cases bigoted.” Mr. Redford was on CNN to promote his new movie, but talk quickly strayed into the political arena.

NBC is yanking two low-rated series — a remake of Ironside and sitcom Welcome to the Family — and set premiere dates for Community and a Chicago Fire police spinoff. Cult favorite Community returns Jan. 2, in its former Thursday at 8 ET/PT time slot, bumping Parks and Recreation to 8:30. (Parks will be pre-empted until then by repeats and specials, except for two pairs of back-to-back episodes on Nov. 14 and 21.) Chicago PD, a spinoff of Chicago Fire starring Jason Beghe, Jon Seda and Sophia Bush, will premiere Jan. 8 (Wednesdays at 10 ET/PT) in Ironside's time slot, which after next week's episode will be filled by Dateline NBC, SNL and other specials. Ironside is averaging just 6 million viewers, and is the oldest-skewing new show on network TV this fall. Welcome to the Family claimed just 2.7 million And Parks is drawing a low 3.9 million, and is incompatible with the rest of NBC's Thursday comedy lineup, consisting of broader (if only slightly more popular) series led by Michael J. Fox and Sean Hayes.
Adrian Peterson only recently learned he was the father of a 2-year-old boy in South Dakota ... and met him for the first time Thursday ... while the boy was on life support, TMZ has learned. Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us ... roughly 2-3 months ago, the mother of the child had a paternity test done with an ex she suspected to be the father, in an effort to collect child support from him. But the test turned up negative, so the woman went to Adrian ... with whom she had a sexual encounter several years ago. We're told ... when Adrian was first informed about the matter, he didn't question the possibility he was the dad -- but rather asked how he could help the situation. Sources tell us ... a few weeks ago, A.P. started to plan a trip to South Dakota to meet the child for the first time and he was supposed to fly out later this month. But when he heard the news about the attack on the 2-year-old, Peterson dropped everything and jetted over to Sioux Falls as soon as he could. We're told Adrian met the child for the first time while the boy was on life support.Multiple sources tell us ... Adrian has been very involved since the tragedy and was the one pushing the have the child's organs donated to other people in need of a transplant. As for the suspect, Joey Patterson, we're told Adrian has never met the guy. We reached out to Adrian and the mother of the child for comment -- so far, no word back from either side.
