Turning the Tide: The Preservation of America

Today's show focused on a couple of different areas, Rep. Ken Sumsion's run for the governor of Utah, and Janie Johnson's book Don't Take My Lemonade Stand.

I had the opportunity to really explore Rep. Sumsion's stand on public land use, education, and making Utah a business friendly environment.

“My number one priority as Governor will be to fund education in Utah by gaining access to the trillions of dollars worth of oil and minerals buried beneath our public lands,” said Sumsion. “I am passionate about this fight that would make Utah a leader in energy production, create jobs for Utahns, and benefit all of our children’s education.

Then I had a delightful 30 minutes with author, Janie Johnson. Her book Don't Take My Lemonade Stand drew praise from industry giants such as:

"If kids had read this book a generation ago, we would be in the mess we're in today." Steve Forbes, Forbes Magazine

"Often the best education for youngsters comes outside the classroom, especially when learning the foundational precepts America rests on. This may be a book for children, but their parents can benefit from it as well." Ambassador John Bolton, FoxNews Contributor

In looking around at the circumstances so many find themselves in today, a faint memory begins to coalesce in mind once again. During the Great Depression my ancestors survived those lean years by selling tamales in a roadside stand in Southern California. That recipe has been handed down throughout the years, as has a number of wonderful recipes from my mother’s side of the family. As times grow tougher in America, people are becoming much more creative in finding legal, moral and ethical ways to make money. Well, to be honest, many are finding dishonest ways as well, but we’re not going to focus on those.  Read More

If you’ve ever been a fan of the Sherlock Holmes novels, you know Holmes’ arch nemesis is James Moriarty. In my very humble opinion, Robert Downey Jr. is the best Sherlock Holmes in the history of Hollywood, albeit rather manic in this latest adventure.

Professor James Moriarty has an evil plan which ultimately will make him the richest man in the world if he can pull it off. There is only one man, slightly crazy, standing in his way, Sherlock Holmes. And although Dr. Watson finally marries the woman of his dreams, he is soon embroiled in Holmes’ battle with Moriarty before the honeymoon even gets off the ground. Read More
