On PowerTalk with Lorraine Jacques-White we had an outstanding show, a few guest stopped by the studio to give insight on issues and also lend a helping hand. Parents from Booker T. Washington High School in southwest Atlanta, stopped by the studio to raise funds for new band uniforms. They were very worried and concern about the mold and raw sewage issue at the school, and the mold coating the band uniforms and what also appears to be raw sewage seeping from the floor.

“It was muddy, it was red and the stench was horrific,” said Valerie Williams, a graduate of the school.”This is an environmental safety hazard. It’s a hazard,” Williams said.

Atlanta Schools Associate Superintendent Steve Smith told Viteri the mold has been a huge problem this year due to heavy rains. The school has addressed the issue but the district also addressed the sewage but will need to find a permanent fix since it could become a recurring problem with more rain.

Needless to say an amazing individual came to the studio to promote his new play Neighbors’ From Hell and over heard the parents from Booker T. Washington mold and sewage issue, an amazing and generous person Tyler Perry himself decided to give the family $3,000 to cover the expense for their brand new band uniforms. Blessed Grateful and Thankful they were for him to have done such a great deed without any hesitation.

In other news Jason a 35-Year-Old Veteran On Food Stamps.

“I turned 35 less than a week ago. My first job was maintenance work at a public pool when I was 17. I worked 40 hours a week while I was in college. I’ve never gone longer than six months without employment in my life and I just spent the last three years in the military, one of which consisted of a combat tour of Afghanistan.

Oh, and I’m now on food stamps. Since June, as a matter of fact. Why am I on food stamps?

I didn’t risk my life in Afghanistan so I could come back and watch people go hungry in America. I certainly didn’t risk it so I could come back and go hungry.
Anyone who genuinely supports cutting food stamps is not an intellectual or an ideologue — they’re a bully. And nobody likes a bully. Except other bullies.
It’s time for regular Americans to stand up to these bullies. Not cower in the corner, ashamed of needing help. Because if there’s one thing life has taught me, it’s that you never know when you’ll be the one in need.” stated Jason
