The biggest industry in Ohio & in Wood County

Over $100 billion in Ohio, do you know what it is? Farming and agribusiness, salt of the Earth, right here in Ohio. This Saturday on A Firm Foundation for Life, we are pleased to be joined live on the program, the new Executive Vice-President of the Ohio Farm Bureau, Adam Sharp. Stepping in to fill the shoes of legendary Jack Fisher, Adam Sharp’s roots are on the family farm, in Fairfield County. As members of the Farm Bureau now for nearly 10 years we have watched first hand as our Farm Bureau has been pro-active in such matters animal rights, water issues, farm labor issues, pesticide and fertilizer application regulations, mineral and easement rights in rural areas, and just about any other challenge facing our family farmers.
Tune into A Firm Foundation for Life on our new home in Toledo, 1370 WSPD also on 92.9 fm. beginning at 9:00 am. The broadcast is streamed live on

Breast Cancer Awareness

Thursday, October 20th, 2016
It’s getting late into grass growing season!
     A Firm Foundation for Life this Saturday will focus on Breast Cancer Awareness month,  October 1 thru 31.  Many of the fund raising events are over,  so this Saturday N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts will welcome again to the program one of the world’s foremost experts on cancer and the treatment of cancer Dr. Robert Lavey, cancer radiologist specialist and medical director of the Maurer Family Cancer Center at Wood County Hospital.  Dr. Lavey came to us via, USF, via, USC, via, UCLA, via Stanford.  Dr. Lavey has been the principle director of 12 internationally conducted clinical trials.   Dr. Lavey has written over 40 scientific articles and 20 chapters in textbooks.  Our favorite Dr. Lavey quote is when someone asks him when we are going to find a cure for cancer his answer is always, “we are curing cancer everyday”!
     This Saturday beginning at 9:00 am.  it’s the whole program with Dr. Lavey.  Tune into  1370 AM  WSPD, also on 92.9 fm,  also streamed live at:  <>  or I-Heart radio.
      Yesterday Rick sowed grass at the new construction site 601 Jacqueline Place,  probably the last time this year for grass sowing and just ahead of today’s soaking rain.  A picture is attached,  also a picture of R &  J with their new broadcast engineer Josh Kelly inside the WSPD studio at I-Heart Media in downtown Toledo.
