This Weekend on A Firm Foundation for life,  N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts after several days in NYC,  broadcast live from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.   Our feature guest on the program,  Anthony Gardner,  the senior V.P. for Government and Community Affairs,  lost his older brother Harvey on that fateful day,  and after spending time and sharing with Anthony we are dedicating this weekend’s program to Harvey’s memory.   This has been an unforgettable experience for Jackie and I,   and we encourage any of you that haven’t been here to New York to make the trip sometime in the near future.

The program begins Saturday at 9:00 am.  and this Sunday for the first time,  the program will be re-broadcast at 7:00 am.,  something to tune to before church.  1370 WSPD, streamed live at:  or remotely with the I-Heart radio media app on your I-phone.

Are you taking drugs?

On this first Saturday in October N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts welcome Wood County Commissioner Dr. Ted Bowlus to the program for a frank and honest assessment of the drug crisis going on locally,   Ohio ranks worst in the Country.   One of Dr. Bowlus’s campaign issues was about this topic.  Dr. Bowlus has served as past president of the Wood County Board of Health, Behavioral Connections,  St. Charles Mercy Hospital and Bay Park Hospital, National Alliance for Mental Illness.   Dr. Bowlus is passionate about this topic,  and even though N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts are not doctors,  they have extensive background on drugs, addictions, and mental health issues.   This Saturday’s program promises to be informative, Rick and Jackie,  and Dr. Bowlus are all problem solvers and don’t like to fail!

The program begins at 9:00 am.  locally on 1370 WSPD,  streamed across the world at:  <>  or remotely with the I-Heart radio app on your I-phone.
