Think on These Things: Part III

Finally, brethren, ... whatsoever things are of good report; ifthere be any virtue, and if there

By the time you read this article, my first radio talk show will be history, and I pray all of you benefited to some degree. So, I've decided to dedicate this column - my maiden voyage into the world of broadcasting flying solo - to my guests and generous sponsors.

My first guest, John Best, chief executive officer of Capitol Entertainment Services (CES), told us about his childhood, he imparted to listeners how he got the idea to start a transportation company - that specializes in bus tours - and how he acquired a fleet of buses.

In my health segment, listeners heard from Dr. Lareece Long, Ph.D., who hails from Florida. She wears many hats - as a wellness practitioner and as a colon hydro therapist instructor just to name a few. You'll be hearing more from her in the future.

Adrienne Terrell Washington, a D.C. political commentator, who has appeared on programs such as WRC's "Reporter's Notebook" and "The D.C. Politics Hour" of the Kojo Nnamdi Show on WAMU-FM, will put politics into perspective for listeners in the Washington metropolitan area each week. Although situations appear grim these days, we can all learn an invaluable lesson by being cognizant of the choices we make regarding our elected officials and the possible repercussions.

However, I'm most excited about the health tips! I've just confirmed Dr. Richard Merrill, M.D., the last doctor who cared for my late mother Fannie. This Fri., June 15, he will discuss diabetes and how the disease affects the kidneys.

Dr. Merrill opened the Kidney Center in 1995. It's a private, single physician office in Greenville, N.C. In addition to directing care at the center, Dr. Merrill provides treatment to patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).

CES is a bus touring company which offers a variety of guided sightseeing tours of the nation's capital. Their "African-American Heritage Tour of Washington, D.C." and "Duke Ellington Neighborhood Tours" have been designated as official White House Millennium American Pathways 2000 Tours.

Tour groups enjoy the many interesting and informative American history facts provided during the "National Monument and Memorial Tour." Student groups experience exciting and fascinating exhibits on the "Education Tour" during school trips. Hotel guests and other visitors can take regularly scheduled "Washington, D.C. Sightseeing Tours" from selected hotels and other locations. All tours are conducted by professional tour guides.

Jack H. Olender & Associates has evolved into a medical malpractice and personal injury powerhouse. Lawyers at the firm are consistently recognized by their peers for exemplary legal efforts on behalf of the injured.

Mr. Olender's tireless efforts to hold accountable those who cause injuries have helped countless medical malpractice and personal injury victims obtain fair compensation. He has been dubbed the "King of Malpractice." He's considered one of the most well-respected medical malpractice lawyers in the country.

In 1976, Mr. Olender won the country's first multi-million dollar obstetric medical malpractice verdict on behalf of a baby girl who suffered brain damage due to substandard medical care during delivery.

Since then, the firm has won - through verdict or settlement - awards of more than $1 million each in more than 200 cases.

The Law Offices of Alton Lewis and Shelore A.C. Williams specialize in wills and probate law. If you or someone in your family needs legal services in the probate field, give Mr. Lewis and Ms. Williams a call.

But it all started with The Washington Informer newspaper. Publisher Denise Rolark Barnes afforded me a rare opportunity. It all started here in the Religious Column. I can't thank Mrs. Barnes enough. Thank God for each and every one of you!
