Patrick Grace of Publishers Place joined Jean Dean today and various topics were discussed such as last night's hearing in the House of Delegates chamber at the Legislature chaired by Delegate Don Perdue concerning water safety. It was well attended and at least fifty people spoke to the issue.
Journalist Dave Peyton was Jean's guest today. They discussed the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King and whether or not its fulfillment or any part of it has been realized. The charges rendered against New Jersey Governor Chris Christie by Hoboken Mayor Zimmer were detailed. Her complaint was that her city did not receive Hurricane Sandy funds because of her reluctance to support a specific NJ project. Hoboken received $72 million in Federal funds.
Jean was joined by co-host Alex Hackney and their first guest was Bruce Marquis, Executive Director of the Paramount Arts Center. A newcomer to Ashland Bruce spoke of upcoming events at the PAC and plans for family and educational outreach.
Bos and Dotty Johnson joined Jean today and the legalization of marijuana for entertainment use as recently enacted in Colorado drew comments as to whether or not such use can predictably lead to the use of "harder" drugs such as heroin and cocaine. Alcohol was also brought into the conversation. A bill to be introduced in the West Virginia House (Legislature) by Delegate Don Perdue, D-Wayne County requiring a prescription for the purchase of pseudoephedrine (cold decongestants) by prescription only rather than OTC was also debated.
Paul Swann and Jack Bogaczyk speak with Marshall football coach Doc Holiday about winning the Military Bowl and the future of the Thundering Herd Program. Jerry Briggs, San Antonio Express-News, joins the program to preview the men's basketball match-up between UTSA and Marshall on Thursday.
Dr. Joe Wyatt and Tri-State Viewpoint host Jean Dean discussed the likelihood of the long term unemployment compensation enactment being approved in the House of Representatives following its approval by the Senate. Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates' new book, a very critical publication of President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, received comment from Joe and Jean as did the latest actions taken in various States which, in effect, make it very difficult for a woman to receive a legal abortion in spite of the Roe vs. Wade decision. This may become a very important issue in the 2014 mid-term elections.
