We started the days today with two friends from St Tammany Parish Hospital, Amanda Paxton and Deborah Berger. Deborah wanted to remind everyone about Heart Month in February and was full of all kinds of good info about heart health. Also, tomorrow is Wear Red Day for building awareness for heart health for the ladies. You can hear the interview here…
Up next was State Treasurer John Kennedy. We always enjoy our conversations with him and he had plenty to say about wasteful spending in the state and the plan being put forward by Gov Edwards. You can find out more about him here on his website… State Treasurer Website. The interview is below…
Today’s Person We Have Never Talked To Before…
…Was Kamron Rayborn, a student at Southeastern. Kamron is a sophomore and wants to be a nurse. She had to be willing to share her nickname with us and she had two: Kammie-Sue and Kameronie. Mom is Jill, Dad is Skipper, and her brother is Reed, but she calls him Reedie Beedie. Kamron is looking forward to a big weekend at parades in NOLA and wanted to give a shout out to her buddy Ariel. Thanks to Kamron and now she can never be A Person We Have Never Talked To Before…
