Boston Bombing
There are times that require people to step out of their comfort zone, to step up for justice, tolerance and moderation. We know going in that the repercussions of taking action will draw a rain of accusations and attacks from the forces we are confronting. We do it anyway. We do it because it must be done. Founded in 2006, the Clarion Project (formerly Clarion Fund Inc) is an independently funded, non-profit organization dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamic extremism while providing a platform for the voices of moderation and promoting grassroots activism. Clarion’s award-winning movies have been seen by over 50 million people. They grapple with issues such as religious persecution, human rights, women’s rights, the dangers of a nuclear Iran and what the concept of jihad means for the West. Our dynamic website, viewed by over 450,000 people in 2012, covers breaking news and provides commentary on relevant issues. The Clarion Project draws together Middle East experts, scholars, human rights activists and Muslims to promote tolerance and moderation and challenge extremism. Podcast of the interview Download:

Ryan O'reilly

Ryan O'reilly


Bio Page Writing, Music, and the Outdoors I took to books at an early age and can still remember my father reading J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit to me at bedtime. When I could read on my own, my mother brought home books from the library for my siblings and me. She tells me, that I would look at the covers and say “not interested”, but if she left them on my night stand I couldn’t help, but devour them—the genres and titles didn’t seem to matter. Growing up the oldest of five children outside the city of Chicago, our house was always teeming with activity—so it may be no wonder that I enjoyed staying up late to read when things were quiet. There was always something transcendent about disappearing into another world while the rest of the house slept. Books taught me so much about myself and the world around. I also loved to draw and write. I can remember creating little stories and illustrations with my cousin on rolls of newspaper run-off my Grandmother obtained for us when we stayed with her. As I got older, I tried my hand at poetry and short works of prose. I was able to get some poetry published in my high school literary magazine and later I had a work published online on a website dedicated to original Chicago artwork: Site of Big Shoulders (http://sobs.org/poetry/oreilly/index.html). In school, I pursued a degree in English literature and learned how to critique, and more importantly, how to be critiqued. During college I spent a semester living in Italy and found great inspiration walking among the statutes and paintings of the masters I learned about in school. The opportunity to physically touch and feel the palpable genius of the old craftsman from the ancient and medieval worlds was an unparalleled experience. Sometime in the early 2000’s I got involved with managing a local hard rock band called: I Decline (www.ideclineband.com) which took up most of my free time for the next few years. The experience collaborating with old friends and being on the local music scene with fellow artists served as a sort of creative outlet and taught me how to share an artistic vision. To this day, music remains a large part of my life and I find that most of my writing is done with headphones on! When the band went on hiatus, I found myself with a glut of free time and boatload of left over energy without any direction. At this time, I decided to pursue my other passion the natural word. Having backpacked through some of America’s great national and state parks, I wanted to try my hand at the art of hunting wild game. With the guidance of an experienced family member, a few books, and hours of practice on the archery range, I was able to harvest my first whitetail deer by bow and arrow in the dark north woods of the Midwest. The experience of directly connecting with the earth and the cycles of life and death gave me a new perspective and inspired me to get back into writing. Rediscovering my voice, I resurrected my muse and joined a local writing group of published authors called the Southland Scribes. Here, I began to take my craft seriously and learned to focus on the mechanics of writing and the discipline of the process. After a couple more hiatuses I came full circle to my original passion, the written word, I now spend my free time outlining, editing, researching, and writing stories. Trying to find characters, situations, and plots that intrigue me, and hopefully strike a chord with others. My three passions: writing, music, and the outdoors drive my creative works. Music inspires the rhythm and language of my narrative and the natural world always seems to intrude in from the background to interact in interesting ways with my characters. I’ve crossed through a few different genres trying to find my voice but mostly dwell in fantasy, science fiction, and literary fiction. A few authors who have inspired me are: J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Frank Herbert, Richard Adams, J.K. Rowling, Douglas Adams and William Shakespeare. Podcast of the interview Download:

Sandy from TDC Games

Sandy from TDC Games


TOPIC-
Company History Formed in 1984 by Chicago writers Larry Balsamo and Sandra Bergeson, TDC Games, Inc. has established a reputation for creating innovative board games with a zany twist. TDC’s games have become known not only for their marketability, but also for a noticeably wry sense of humor that runs throughout line. Currently servicing over 4,000 retailers both large and small throughout the United States and Canada, TDC products are also distributed throughout the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Although most game and puzzle concepts are developed within the company, successful licensing arrangement have also been arranged with the NFL, NASCAR, Fox Television, ABC-Touchstone Television, Major League Baseball. Precious Moments and Where's Waldo and Campbell's Soup among many others.

SANDY BERGESON, Creative Director Sandy Bergeson is a true virtuoso of the arts. She is a former member of the Chicago Lyric Opera and New York City Opera companies and has had a starring role in an Off-Broadway musical. Marriage, children and settling down to the Chicago suburbs led her to a creative association with Larry Balsamo at Hey Wires Singing Telegrams. Sandy churned out custom lyrics with Balsamo, while also performing the zany personalized messages to everyone from grease monkeys to the President of the United States. She also was a theater critic on the radio and an entertainment writer for Copley Newspapers, while writing the I Hate to Diet Dictionary in between. In 1984, she mentioned to Balsamo that an adult version of trivia might be a good idea. The rest is history... and TDC GAMES. The creative combination of Bergeson and Balsamo has accounted for the majority of TDC’s product success rate. Says Bergeson, who also found the time to pick up a Master’s Degree along the way, "We probably qualify as America’s most obscure successful writing team."

Susan Offer Szafir


More than 400,000 people in the United States undergo kidney dialysis. If you or a member of your family are one of them, then the prospect of a regular appointment with a dialysis machine may seem like the end of life itself. But that reaction couldn't be more wrong. In Dialysis Without Fear, psychiatrist and dialysis patient Dr. Daniel Offer joins with his wife, Marjorie Kaiz Offer, and daughter, Susan Offer Szafir, to reveal how life can be lived--and lived well--on dialysis. Drawing on his long medical career and more than seven years of personal experience with dialysis, Dr. Offer dispels many misconceptions surrounding this treatment, explaining how you can adapt to the new diet, travel, work and continue to partake in life's joys and celebrations. But the fears and hardships can be quite real, and Dr. Offer brings his years as a psychiatrist to bear as he provides practical advice on how patients can overcome them. Walking through each step of dialysis, he explains different types of treatment, examines the pros and cons of a transplant, and discusses side effects. Since dialysis affects the entire family, Dr. Offer and his coauthors also provide realistic insights into how relatives can cope and thrive together, sharing the humor, courage, and triumphs of real families who have successfully faced the challenges of dialysis. The result is an inspiring, practical guide that will help you and your family learn to overcome the difficulties of dialysis, live without fear, and enjoy every day.

Judge Jackson

Judge Jackson


If you’re a living, breathing rock and roll diehard with a pulse just about anywhere across this great country of ours—no one embodies that drive, determination and lifestyle better than JUDGE JACKSON, whose balls-to-the-wall classic take on a noble tradition is the soundtrack to your life. For more than a decade, through four albums, a thousand shows (celebrating that milestone, appropriately enough, at the 27th Laughlin River Run), and shows with Gov’t Mule, Doobie Bros., Cheap Trick, Buckcherry, Army of Anyone, UFO and Joe Bonamassa, among others, this hard-driving quartet’s music can be heard on a variety of TV shows, including the Super Bowl, NHL and NBA playoffs, as well as NASCAR. With their fifth album, Drive, JUDGE JACKSON have put all that road work to good use, with an eclectic collection that doesn’t just show off their patented hard rock rave-ups on songs like the title track, “Just Because,” “Radio” and “Letting Go,” but demonstrates the band’s roots in funk-blues (“The End”), acoustic folk (“Me Then You”) and even country-twang (“Meant to Be”). Produced, engineered and mixed once more by frequent collaborator John Hiler [Stephen Stills, Willie Dixon, Smashing Pumpkins], Drive wears JUDGE JACKSON’s passion for music and the camaraderie of rock on its sleeve. From guitarist Lee Jackson’s slashing power chords, J.J. Garcia’s pounding drums and Brian James’ bass rumble of “Just Because,” as singer Todd McTavish relates the tale of a stripper “who does what she does/just because it pays the rent,” and the revved-up joys of home in “The River” to the Black Sabbath-meets AC/DC gnarly guitar pyrotechnics of “Radio,” about the thrill of hearing your record on the air, to the Guns N’ Roses flair of “Letting Go,” with its vow of “letting go to what I’ve left behind,” Judge Jackson remain true to their rock and roll beliefs. The roots of JUDGE JACKSON can be traced back to 1995, when vocalist/lyricist McTavish, who came to town from Canada, where he once played in a band that featured Shania Twain as back-up vocalist, joined up with guitarist/songwriter Jackson in L.A. to tirelessly play the town’s club circuit, where they steadily built a devoted local following. By 1998, the band released its debut album, followed shortly thereafter by a second CD, 8068. Drummer Garcia joined the group shortly after the release of JUDGE JACKSON’s third CD, One Diamond, which marked the band’s multimedia breakthrough, with “Amazing” receiving airplay on more than 30 stations across the U.S., while “Times Been Changing” was featured on NBC’s popular comedy My Name Is Earl. Still another track, “King,” is now the theme to the Speed Channel NASCAR program, Victory Lane, viewed by more than a million fans every Sunday. From the band’s self-titled fourth album, released in March, 2007, “Lift the Bottle” and “Rock N’ Roll” have been featured on several Fox Sports Network promos and programs. In addition, the group wrote and recorded a brand-new song, “Get Busy,” for Fox Sports’ college football telecasts. And while they’ve been the best-kept secret on the L.A. rock scene, JUDGE JACKSON is starting to get some recognition. The group’s last album was named “Best CD of the Year” in the 5th Annual All Access Magazine Awards. Since then, the group has added bassist Brian James, formerly of The Rocking Scoundrels and Stone, to replace longtime member Ryan Rogers. On his rare time away from JUDGE JACKSON, the band’s songwriter McTavish has been collaborating with other artists, including Motley Crue’s Mick Mars. Drive offers conclusive proof JUDGE JACKSON still has their eye on the prize, with a powerful set of songs that runs the gamut from the joys of friendship (the Journey-meets-The Who anthem, “Pickin’ Me Up), the road (“Drive”), home (“The River”), traveling music (“Radio”) and falling in love (“Head Over Heels”) to the sorrows of regret (“Me Then You” “Meant to Be,” with a gorgeous duet featuring Julia Henry) and breaking up (“Letting Go,” “The End”), expressed as only a rock band knows how—with soaring vocals, churning guitars, and a rhythm section that punches you in the gut. The album is the perfect accompaniment to the warm weather, which, come to think of it, means 12 months a year in sunny SoCal. “I drink too much/I like to cuss/Always good at getting down and dirty/And having fun/In that summer sun/Chasing girls that are all so purdy,” sings McTavish, and you couldn’t come up with a better description of the way listening to JUDGE JACKSON’s music makes you feel. It’s rock and roll the way it’s meant to be.

Karen Godfrey

KNEA President Karen Godfrey After spending her childhood years in Anchorage, Alaska, Karen Godfrey first came to the Midwest to attend the University of Kansas. She graduated in 1980 as valedictorian for the School of Education with a double major in language arts and French. She started her career in Kansas by taking a position at Logan Junior High School in the Seaman District in Topeka and has remained a loyal Midwesterner ever since. She taught a combination of seventh and ninth grade English and French classes at Logan until she moved to the Freshmen Center at Seaman High School where she taught language arts. She has also had a variety of supplemental positions from cheerleader sponsor to National Junior Honor Society sponsor to her most recent roles as volleyball and track coach. Karen has continuously added to her teaching skills and knowledge. She completed a master's degree in language arts education at K. U. in 1988. In 2002, she earned National Board Certification in Early Adolescence/English Language Arts and just successfully completed the renewal process to extend her master teacher’s certificate until 2022. Karen extends her service to the profession beyond her district. She has presented workshops and served on NCA teams in other districts. She also serves as a National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education examiner. She has frequently been a part of Kansas State Board of Education advisory groups and task forces, from the Quality Performance Advisory Council to the Professional Standards Advisory Board. Her most recent role was on the Kansas Education Commission. Her true passion, though, is Kansas NEA work. When she first started teaching, she thought perhaps she could just be a great teacher in the microcosm she created in her classroom. However, she soon became involved in association work, first helping re-establish her local association at Seaman. She quickly realized the need for educational leaders in the forefront working to make Kansas an even better place to teach and learn. Karen then led her local in various roles as chief negotiator, president and UniServ representative. Her first state level work was as an Instructional Advocacy Commissioner. Since then, she has served in several capacities including becoming KNEA Secretary-Treasurer in 2006 and Vice President in 2009. She relishes being an advocate for great public schools for every child. Karen is fortunate that her husband, who is also an educator and long-time member, understands and appreciates the dedication she gives to KNEA. They live outside of Topeka in the country and find time to enjoy their mutual pastimes of outdoor sports, home improvement and antiquing. They also manage occasionally to slip back to Alaska to visit family in Anchorage and Juneau. Podcast of the interview Download:

Cherry Blue Storms

Cherry Blue Storms


Shortly after Glen Laughlin returned to Los Angeles from the Stukas Over Disneyland tour as second guitarist/keyboardist with punk rock legends The Dickies he was involved in a motor vehicle accident on the way to the studio. His left hand was crushed, seemingly ending his career as a musician. As we know, the story didn’t quite end there. With his hand still in a cast, Laughlin formed The Skin Trade. Seven months later The Skin Trade played their first show, featuring Laughlin on lead vocals and two-fingered bass. He later rejoined The Dickies as bassist and then as guitarist for several years. He also began to use the many non-standard tunings he developed as a result of his hand injury. Following The Dickies’ Idjit Savant tour, Laughlin purchased part of the studio where “Idjit” was recorded. Since then, in addition to The Cherry Bluestorms, he has produced The Dickies, movie star Heather Graham, tracks for CSI: Las Vegas and indie artists Neil Ormandy, Reuben “Big Reub” Vigil and The Reloaders, The Ben Gunn Society, and The Greatcoats. He has also performed with David Swanson (The Pop), Buffalo Springfield Again (featuring Dewey Martin), legendary songwriter P.F. Sloan and seminal New Wave band The Furys. Having landed a development deal with A&M Records which led to collaborations with recording world luminaries Chris Lord-Alge, Mike Clink and with engineer, Jon Ingoldsby (Madonna, K.D. Lang), Deborah Gee placed several songs from her debut solo album “Portal” in TV and films. She was looking for a collaborator for her next venture. After meeting Glen at a coffeehouse and discovering their mutual love for ‘60’s guitar-based melodic rock, the two began working on what was to become The Cherry Bluestorms’ debut album, Transit of Venus. TOV was noted as one of the top 100 indie albums of 2007 by International Pop Overthrow’s David Bash. TOV has been critically praised by L.A.

They are currently a three-piece (formerly four), consisting of a guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist, bassist, and a drummer. Tera Melos play a brand of music characterized by quickly alternating rhythmic patterns, start-stop dynamics, improvisation, two-handed tapping on the guitar, extended open-ended bridges, and the use of effect pedals and samplers.
