Show Notes for Thursday November 15, 2018


Dear John,

I have three girls. My two older daughters are already graduated, but my youngest is only a sophmore. She's not a fan of school. Her grades have never been the greatest, but this year they are down right horrible. She feels like one teacher is singeling her out and being harder on her than she needs to be. My daughter has this same teacher for two different subjects and she's failing both of them. In the beginning of the year I didn't think much of it because she was struggling with her other classes too... lately she's buckled down and gotten the other grades up, but these two are still failing. My daughter's best friend told me she thinks the teacher has some kind of personal issue with my daughter. I asked the girls if they knew why she would have something against my daughter, but they didn't know what that would be. Should I contact the school or do you think that would make it even worse?

A Virginia drug-dealing mother was sentenced to ten days in jail after pleading guilty to giving her three children marijuana. 28-year-old Stephanie N. Hamrick pleaded guilty on Tuesday to three felony charges of child neglect after Staunton police say she repeatedly provided marijuana to her children, ages 7, 11, and 14. According to reports, Hamrick was arrested in June after one of her children told police she was dealing pot. Prosecutors say they were provided videos, photographs, and text messages as evidence of the marijuana use by one of Hamrick’s children. Police also found four cellphones, a digital scale, and a small amount of marijuana when Hamrick was arrested. She was also charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Hamrick reached a deal with prosecutors which resulted in ten days in jail and four years’ probation in exchange for a guilty plea. Her lawyer, Eric Swortzel, says Hamrick doesn’t have custody of her children. He says she didn’t provide a reason for giving her children marijuana. (

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day


Auroral (uh-ROHR-ul)
-Of or like the dawn.
-Pertaining to the aurora borealis or aurora australis.

From the Latin aurĊra meaning "dawn; dawn goddess; east." It entered English in the mid-1500s.

Used in a sentence:
"There was not in all that vanished October one day that did not come in with auroral splendour and go out attended by a fair galaxy of evening stars—not a day when there were not golden lights in the wide pastures and purple hazes in the ripened distances."
~Lucy Maud Montgomery, The Golden Road, 1913

WEIRD NEWS:Brought to you by (use promo code RADIO to save 10%)A commercial fisherman who faked his death to avoid incarceration for a sexual assault has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison. Federal prosecutors say the Coast Guard spent $384,261 searching for 35-year-old Ryan Meganack after his girlfriend, who was part of the scheme, reported him missing off Port Graham. In 2016 Meganack faced state charges of sexually assaulting an incapacitated woman. Investigators determined he swamped his skiff, returned to Port Graham on another boat, and hid out near his mother’s home. He planned to flee Alaska when the search ended. The plan went awry when Meganack’s girlfriend confessed to his grieving parents that Meganack was not dead. U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason ordered Meganack to serve 15 months in prison consecutive to his 15-year state sentence. (

MOMENT OF DUH:Firefighters in central Florida had to rescue a man who climbed down a 30-foot deep well, undertaking the adventure allegedly because he wanted “to say he did it.” Scott Smoak, battalion chief with the Volusia County Fire Department, stated that unfortunately for the unidentified man, he did not have the strength to climb back out and had to call for help. He said the man climbed down late Tuesday night and it took a technical rescue team trained to work in confined spaces until about 2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning to pull him out. Smoak said it had been quite a while since they had to rescue someone from a well – and urged people who come across wells to avoid repeat scenarios. “When you come across an open shaft of any kind that goes down into the well, stay away from it,” he said.
