The Local Take on WCLK

On the Saturday, March 25 edition of The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I'll speak with Louis Elrod of Better Georgia about HB 515. The bill will redraw district lines in Henry County where the lines were just redrawn two years ago. 

Concerned citizens can contact their representatives up until the end of the month to voice your concerns about this action.  As some of you may know, former Obama administration Attorney General, Eric Holder has spoken out about this new effort of redistricting.

The Local Take: Real Dads Read

Feb 25, 2017

This week on The Local Take we speak with Kenneth Braswell from Fathers Incorporated about their new initiative REAL DADS READ. Research shows that when fathers participate in their children's education, helping with homework, their grades and test scores increase. Fathers play a critical role in the development of  literacy when they model the importance of reading and sharing stories.  

Braswell points out that we have mp3 children living with 8-Track parents and that technology can be challenging.  

This week on The Local Take I speak with actors Tracy Bonner and Re, both appearing in the new True Colors Theatre Company production of EXIT STRATEGY.

The play speaks directly to the closing of schools and the impact not only on the teachers and students but on the community as a whole. The playwright, Ike Holter, was writing about school closings in Chicago, but this is happening to schools all over the country.
