This week’s edition of the radio show, All Things Moore County,features special guests from our community who are committed to giving back to others in Moore County. Organized by Ken Rahal, host Bill Sahadi’s guests are as follows:

Bill Smith of Bill Smith Ford talks about this years edition of Project Santa to help supply bicycles to needy children in Moore County. Project Santa was the dream of Earl Wright. Earl’s time, resources & energy have lifted Project Santa into one of the most meaningful Christmas morning events in Moore County. The bikes are distributed on Christmas morning. The most needed bikes are those for the small children, and time is of the essence to get them donated in time so that the conditioning and repairs can be made in time for Christmas.

Marsae Stone of the Northern Moore Family Resource Center is also on hand to talk about the very good & important work her organization does for the youth in Robbins and North Moore County including the Robbins Childrens Christmas Gift Drive, the warm blanket project and the after school program to support children in their education. The Northern Moore Family Resource Center is located at P.O. Box 190, Robbins, N.C. 27325 and donations can be sent to this address.

Bob Klug of Pinehurst Area Realty & Exec. Director of The First Tee of the Sandhills, Bill Baker, share the great success of last week’s fundraiser, Bucket List, for the First Tee of the Sandhills. This mentoring program, which uses golf as a ‘hook’, is a great mentoring program for our County’s youth that instills discipline, confidence and self esteem in our growing children of many ages.

Life coach, Veronica Karaman, talks about a special event she is planning on Dec. 2nd at Penick
Village, from 1:00 – 6:00 p.m., “Creating Shots of Joy Workshop”. Her workshop is an effort to offer people a chance to leap over the emotional landminds of dealing with holiday stress or family member stress.

at this time of the year it truly is a season for giving back.

Habitat for Humanity & Family Promise – A Hand Up… not a Hand Out

Habitat for HumanityAffordable housing issues Moore County residents face is the topic of discussion on All Things Moore County hosted by Bill Sahadi on local radio station WEEB 990 AM. Local activists Ken Rahall, Karen Hieronymous, Family Promise Executive Director Susan Bellew, Habitat for Humanity of the NC Sandhills Executive Director Elizabeth Cox and future Habitat homeowner Victoria Lopez talk about the issues of homelessness and lack of affordable housing for most low-income families.
After a divorce, Victoria Lopez, mother of six, found her family homeless and in need of the support and assistance of many agencies for the first time. She discusses the impact of these changes and her family’s desire for a hand-up, not a hand-out.
The show presents programs available for homeless families, those in need of repairs to remain in their homes and those families who would qualify for home ownership through programs like Habitat.

“Mark! My Words:How to Discover the Joy of Music, the Delight of Language, and the Pride of Achievement in the Age of Trash Talk and MTV.”

Mark Evans Ph.D. discusses his new book. Dr. Evans is a composer, conductor, pianist, and organist with multifaceted background in music, writing, broadcasting and education. In “Mark! My Words,” he explores our nation’s cultural crisis: classical music, jazz, film scores, and the masterpieces of musical theater are in danger of fading into an undeserved oblivion. Students are emerging from school unfamiliar with our nation’s musical heritage. This crisis extends not only to music, but also to an ignorance of good books, art, theater, and films. It is exacerbated by our vanishing history, a decline in language, and a pervasive celebrity culture. Mark! My Words offers a solution through Cultural Conservation and details what we can do as a society and what you can do as an individual to embark on an exciting journey of discovery that can truly impact your daily life. ( Mary-Katherine Johnston, an honor student, member of the National Honor Society and student of music at Pinecrest High School joins Mark and host Bill Sahadi to add her generations perspective to this compelling dialogue.
