Re: “This summer, homelessness is everyone's problem

To truly understand the problem is to experience it. Homelessness is an exhausting, hopeless, frightening abyss, and until you know what it's like, you really have no idea wtf you're even talking about.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

Here's an idea, KRCC: do a "wish you were here" segment on the unsolved cold blooded murder of your former employee Jocelyn Sandberg -- or is she already out of sight, out of mind? How quickly some of you people forget.

Re: “This summer, homelessness is everyone's problem

This town is truly a "great place to be homeless".... All the handouts do help a majority of the homeless in their efforts to get off our streets. Unfortunately, those freebies also enable a sizeable minority of the homeless who are jerks, bums, and derelicts to hang out in our community. We have lots of folks like this in our city but we do not actively support them in this way of life - why should we do so with homeless folks? Some agencies (not in our town) get to know their clientele and if they are not interested in changing their lifestyle, are OK with saying "Sorry, no more for now". This can be done with love and respect on both sides. I believe part of this problem is that "helping the homeless" has become an established industry here. We have a growing number of CEOs, vice-presidents, supervisors, and directors who have an interest in the status quo. The local industry has evolved into a grant-funded, slow moving Leviathan. Homelessness has a number of causes, and most of those causes have been place since the 1970s. It'll become interesting when sufficient citizens start saying "enough". I've been involved with several of the major providers since 1972 (helped start several of then, actually). I'd like to think we have learned a few tricks since those days. One thing I have learned is that endless handouts do not help everyone. I would hope we would examine other community's successes and try them here. Again, we are dealing with a Leviathan......

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

As the pub media landscape changes and is increasingly threatened by online / on demand content, unique locally produced material is what will keep stations viable. Many of the most successful affiliates (critically and financially) have been leaders in this way.

As to the commentary re: value of WWWH with a $10,000 budget... That's tiny! Expect a show like this American life to be well into the six figures. In my opinion it WWWH show (or similar creative local content) deserves more. If we don't support folks with 'New York kind of money' just be ready to be listening and watching and reading content produced in New York and LA.

News like this makes it hard to justify my regular support of local media.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

So you drive around with a microphone and mix it down with "Audition", Jake's fave, ... How's that ten grand? This should be a wake up call to kids that want to tell a story for five hundred bux! Every KRCC listener has preferences. I turn off Keillor. Dance revo has no taste and is from elsewhere. Youth is right, give it back to the kids! These board members and directors are just local socialites that are so "artsy"(puke!) KEPC seems more real(if they had the BBC...OH MY ...HEAVENLY!)
Noel just droned anyway...sounded too indistinguishable from Jake, now there's a kid with some sense! Don't let the big city kill ya, Noel...oh yeah, that's why you came crawling back.

Re: “Strawberry Fields in Cheyenne Cañon is on the table for a swap with The Broadmoor

My mother had been diagnosed of Hepatitis B disease 3 years ago. She had been using the interferon therapy (Peg-interferon + Ribavirin) which adversely affected her hemoglobin level as she is also thalassemic (a side effect of using the interferon therapy). Luckily after stopping the treatment.

I read a book by HEALTH MED LAB about natural cures and he recommends these two things as a natural cure for HEPATITIS disease,Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and Crocodile Protein Peptide. You can Google both of these to get more info. Also, need to do the cleanses,colon, liver, kidney, galbladder. Eat organic foods to get the toxins out of your body so your body can overcome the disease itself.This is important. I am not promoting his book, but I feel it is a must read if you want information on how to beat this awful disease. My mother is now HEPATITIS Negative with his help, Anyway, his email : ( ) God bless and good luck!

Re: “This summer, homelessness is everyone's problem

Those hooligans in manitou paralyzed a kid with a severe beating on the bandstand. Then, they set up a pink Floyd cover band on the bloodstains. Hey manitards, put down the bong and go to the spa building, encircle them, hold hands and sing "We shall overcome" until they leave.

Tell the bishop to move the soup kitchen to the CENTER of town, Austin bluffs and academy.

Re: “This summer, homelessness is everyone's problem

I keep feeding them downtown, but they won't leave! This is on the Catholics. Move the soup kitchen. Require every recipient to register with a photo id. Mark every breadbag "MH" or "ESM". So what if it's fascist, the id REQUIRED to eat will scare most of them off. Cox is overunderthinking. It's hot, I ain't walking far to eat or poop. It's just food acquisition, get a bottle, poop and pass out.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

I know this is an Indy site, but after the exhaustive coverage of the Strberry Fields problem, I still lacked understanding UNTIL WWWWH enlightened me. I told Beary that local content was the future of KRCC. I know Noel is really full of himself, and probably demanded NY kind of money. He deserves it! Noel is gone, KRCC will follow. I guess you guys should eat some humble pie. Give the station back to the students, but keep GT! Let's face it, you guys got news on a loop. I have to stop what I'm doing to change the station because I already heard that story last hour. Pushing Noel to the internet will enhance it, while KRCC dies. I love my old school radio! BRICKHOUSE!

What a misleading headline. Poor journalism that reflects on the rest of your content.

Re: “This summer, homelessness is everyone's problem

It would be interesting to know the real cause behind this explosion of the homeless problem. It cannot be the economy, as we are being told the jobless rate is only 5%. Could it be that the myriad of homeless programs and ample civilian generosity themselves are to blame?

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

It doesn't cost more to produce, as the article states. This American Life costs way more. 6k is what krcc pays to get it on the air. Read better next time.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

Sorry but WWWH was a terrible show. The fact that it cost more to produce than This American Life, one of the most popular shows on NPR, is appalling.

Re: “Police State

Oh. Guess what happens to an injured man at Memorial Hospital emergency room if said man speaks the truth and says cops did it. Within minutes said injured man who can barely walk is escorted off of hospital property by two obese/stupid beyond repair "security guards". Even before a doctor has seen the results of Xrays and CATscans! Under oathe i speak the truth concerning these matters.

Heil Hitler! Gimme a bier, bitte.

Re: “Police State

They are following orders same as the Waffen SS were. Of course, following orders is no official excuse for war crimes anymore than they are for cops beating people up rather than arresting them.
But, yeah. Ever since Phil Long died and the Jay Cimino types took over our beloved city, if you aren't a crooked car dealer, judge, lawyer, minister, etc., your days are numbered. Only those who look the other way or are too frightened out of their minds to actually come forward are allowed to stick around. Might as well get out of Dodge if you are honest. Ain't that right, officer Petzo. Hope i never see you, Petzo, without you hiding behind your badge with backup moments away. Ruptured spleen, throat punch, mean looking sunglasses worn even at night mashed into your big thick head await you otherwise. Freaking NAZI.
