Program Title Program Topic Duration Segment Type Airdate Time Duration Source Civic Affairs Joy in Our Town #600 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 07/01/08 4:30 AM Rachael Miller welcomes Senator Emmanuel Jones. Senator Jones talks about the need for tax reform in the State of Georgia. Nearly 21 billion dollars funds health care, prisons and education. As a result, it is their goal to make sure that none of the basic services are cut. It is challenging as a state legislature to decide what to cut in order to provide funding for other important areas such as trauma care. With the passing of his recent Senate Bill 52, he is pleased to know that voters will be able to decide the shift of power within their county CEO seat within DeKalb County. He believes that tax reform will become another hot topic in next year’s legislative session. Joy in Our Town #601 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 07/07/2008 11:30 AM 07/08/2008 4:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Georgia State Senator Kasim Reed (District 35) to discuss the high school dropout rate and issues of importance within our legislature. He states that education is not being fully funded in GA. 55% of all high school students are dropping out of school. He states that society should not want the young people to lose the quality of life that comes with education. There is a 15.5 billion dollar impact on Georgia’s economy dues to a lack of unprepared work force. Some of the youth resort to crime due to a lack of education. He states that High school class coaches are needed. Students need strong parental involvement which ranks #1 on the list. 1 out of 2 children will not complete high school. Joy in Our Town #602-1 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 07/18/2008 1:00 PM 07/19/2008 4:30AM 07/21/2008 11:30AM 07/22/2008 4:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Georgia State Senator, Vincent Fort. Senator Fort states that Georgia is one of the top five states in the country for foreclosure. Resources must be in place to help families who are facing foreclosure. Many of the Adjustable Rate Mortgage loans will experience a percentage rate reset/increase in the fall and winter. This will cause families to experience an increase in payments which has been the driving force behind many homeowners having the inability to pay. Senator Fort states that what congress does is important as they must put good programs in place. He suggests that families NOT put off seeking help. Since Georgia is a fast foreclosure state, it is a good idea to get help early. Joy in Our Town #604 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 08/01/2008 1:00 PM 08/02/2008 4:30AM 08/04/2008 11:30AM 08/05/2008 4:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Georgia State Senator Nan Orrock to discuss issues in the community. Senator Orrock states that the current foreclosure crisis affects everyone. The entire community feels the burden when homes loose their value. Georgia ranks within the top 10 states in the nation for the highest foreclosure. She states that zip codes within her district are among the highest impacted my mortgage fraud. On August 31, 2008, Bill 531 will go into effect to help homeowners. Currently, Georgia has one of the weakest homeowner protections against scam artists. Many of them make promises that they don’t keep. In an effort to stop cohesion of appraisers laws are being enacted to stop appraisers from giving incorrect appraisals in shady dealings.

CEO Jones states that a home can foreclose within 37 days. The foreclosure crisis is not in just affecting one particular income or ethnic group. Anyone can face foreclosure. High home ownership equals high foreclosure rates. Some solutions offered are resources to financial leadership seminars to teach the community about finances. Offering services to first time home buyers reduces the rate of the number of people caught in the foreclosure proceedings. He also warns against predatory lenders who prey on providing bad loans to the credit challenged consumer. Joy in Our Town #608 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 09/05/2008 1:00 PM 09/06/2008 4:30AM 09/08/2008 11:30AM 09/09/2008 4:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Georgia State Agriculture Commissioner, Tommy Irvin to talk about food recalls. He states that Georgia at one time did not have the ability to test food safely. Now he can assure citizens of the State of Georgia and those eating food from the state are consuming safe food. He talks about the recent tomato recalls. Many were afraid to eat tomatoes after the recent recalls but he puts viewers at ease by assuring them to look for Georgia grown labels on each their fruit and vegetables. He states that his office is also responsible for regulating gasoline in Georgia and inspecting octane levels. Economy Joy in Our Town #602-1 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 07/18/2008 1:00 PM 07/19/2008 4:30AM 07/21/2008 11:30AM 07/22/2008 4:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Scott Scredon with Consumer Credit Counseling Services to discuss assistance available to families facing foreclosure. Mr. Scredon states that the Hope Hotline is assisting families nationwide and within the community to avoid foreclosure. The national toll free number is open 24-hours a day. Currently, Georgia laws do not protect the consumer. In Georgia a foreclosure can take place within 45 days. Hundreds of thousands of homeowners who are in the same situation can call for counseling or make an appointment to review their budget and expenses. People should refrain from spending money on excessive items. Bankruptcy should be the last resort. He states that over 850,000 calls for financial counseling are received on average each year.

Mr. Brennan states that foreclosure rescue scams have been a big problem in the midst of the foreclosure crisis. Seven to eight thousand foreclosures take place each month in Georgia. The crisis began when loan companies began issuing loans to people with less than perfect credit. Since the early 1990’s lending to homebuyers regardless of their ability to pay initiated the ever increasing problems with subprime mortgage loans. Unfortunately, foreclosure rescue scams have added to the problem when homeowners turn to companies who promise to help only to take advantage of them by taking their money and offering no solutions to resolving their delinquent payment status. To help seniors in this thigh economy, reverse mortgages are an option. This helps seniors to access their equity without having to repay the loan.

Mr. Metcalfe states that many families are struggling from living from paycheck to paycheck. Angel food ministry provides a menu with high protein each month. The food is offered nationally and throughout the community. Currently, over 37 million families across the nation are not getting enough food for their family to eat. The shortage is due to economic stress, loss of income, job cuts and the price of food increasing. Angel Food reaches over 2.5 million people per month. The food box includes meat, vegetables, milk and eggs. Food boxes are available at host sites on a monthly basis, to help the working poor endure the rising cost of food and have alternatives to provide good nutritious food for their family.

She states that many seniors have homes and don’t want to live alone. With the economy changing and the number of foreclosures area residents are looking for options for affordable housing. Through the HouseMate match program, singles who need a home a being matched with seniors who need a roommate. Ms. Zadoff states that this is an ideal situation as they provide criminal background checks so that homeowners do not have to worry about who they are allowing to reside in their home. This program is helping many to save money and to get on their feet financially by obtaining a room to rent in a safe environment.

He states that for the first time in Food Bank history that the shelves on the food back are low. The changes in the economy are being felt as the need for food is increasing as food prices increase. Many families they assist are labeled as the working poor and are in need of food. He states that many of the people who need food are working families who are feeling the pinch of higher gasoline prices, higher food prices and are in need of a helping hand. Mr. Boling hopes that the community will get involved with food drives to help during this food shortage. Many food pantries and ministries depend on the food bank to feed members of their congregation and families in the community requesting aid and support. 700 Club CBN NewsWatch 1:00:00 9:00 REC PA/O/E 09/16/2008 3:00 PM #091608 Erick Stakelbeck, CBN News Reporter WASHINGTON - World markets plunged again today after the worst day on Wall Street since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Investors are worried who will be the next victim of the credit crisis and they're wondering just how long it will last. As Wall Street goes, so goes the world's markets. With several of America's financial giants either gone or teetering on the brink, stock markets from Asia to Europe are feeling the strain. Markets took a dive Tuesday in Hong Kong, Japan and Britain -- while countries like Australia and India flooded money markets with cash. All want to avoid the troubles that have stunned Wall Street. The demise of Lehman Brothers and buyout of Merrill Lynch sent shockwaves among investors Monday. News that leading companies like AIG and Washington Mutual were also struggling added to the sense of uncertainty -- with investors even fleeing stable companies like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. The chaos caused the Dow to plunge 504 points -- the sixth worst point drop ever. The world's largest insurance company -- AIG -- may be next on the chopping block. But don't look for the federal government to bail the company out. After stepping in on behalf of Bear Stearns Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the government made it clear it wouldn't save Lehman Brothers or Merrill - and it's now leaving Wall Street to clean up its own mess. Pat Robertson, CBN Host, talks with Dennis Gartman, financial expert and author of The Gartman Letter about the market plunge and the seriousness of the problem. No one wants to lend money to anyone else. AIG’s loans were irresponsibly made and if corrected 18 months ago it would be easier today. The “netting affect” is the problem. The ability to borrow money will be more difficult. The economic slow down is a bit more unmanageable. Crime Joy in Our Town #601 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 07/07/2008 11:30 AM 07/08/2008 4:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Angelina Washington, Miss Georgia American Queen and Jessica Hanninton, Miss Teen Georgia American Queen. As winners of these pageants, both of them have platforms to educate the community on domestic violence issues surrounding teens. Ms. Washington states that there are three types of abuse: physical, sexual and psychological. It is important to inform teens about abusive relationships and date rape. Some of the warning signs surrounding abuse include: threats, throwing, verbal rudeness and psychological abuse. Women caught in the snare of abuse are often afraid to leave due to finances, fear and no support from family or friends. Stopping the cycle of abuse is imperative especially when kids see parents as abusive. Anyone with questions about breaking free from an abusive relationship should call 1-800-33HAVEN.

Identity theft is the nation’s fastest growing crime. Through newly implemented laws such as the Credit Freeze consumers are able to lock their credit report to stop potential predators who are looking to rob one’s identity. Identity Theft occurs when someone takes someone else’s name and personal information as their own. By placing a Credit Freeze on your report, no one can open credit fraudulently as a pin number can only unlock your credit file with all three reporting agencies such as: Equifax, Trans Union and Experian. Consumers can protect themselves from this crime by paying $3.00 per credit reporting agency. This is also recommended for children who have also been victims of Identity Theft when other use their Social Security number. Joy in Our Town #606 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 08/15/2008 1:00 PM 08/16/2008 4:30AM 08/18/2008 11:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Nancy Chandler, CEO for the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy. Ms. Chandler states that 1 out of 4 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18 and less than 10% will tell someone they were abused. 1 out of every 6 boys are sexually abused. In 90% of the cases the child knows the abuser less than 7% of children are hurt or abused by a stranger. Abused children are interviewed by on tape so they only have to tell their story once for legal proceedings. Parents can also receive training entitled 7 steps for protecting your child. Joy in Our Town #609 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 09/12/2008 1:00 PM 09/13/2008 4:30AM 09/15/2008 11:30AM 09/16/2008 4:30AM Rachael Miller welcomes Special Agent, Terry Sosebee with the GBI Identity Theft Unit. Agent Sosebee states that the GBI has the authority to investigate Identity Theft. Identity Theft is the nation’s fastest growing crime. To help combat the problems associated with identifying identity thieves a new investigative unit opened in July 1, 2008. The unit currently serves the State of Georgia. He discusses the problems associated with the crime and how consumers can protect themselves from becoming the next victim.

He states that his unit helps to locate missing adults and children. The GBI has several units that partner with local law enforcement that issues Amber Alerts and Levi Calls to alert the public. An amber Alert is a rapid response alerting the community that that a child has been abducted. The GBI works with the Georgia Association of Broadcasters to get information out to locate missing children. Mattie’s Call on the other hand, helps local law enforcement with the location of missing elder adult with Dementia or other types of cognitive impairments. Several units provide help to local and state law enforcement for the safety of Georgia citizens. Youth Joy in Our Town #600 28:30 13:00 L PA/O/E 07/01/08 4:30 AM Rachael Miller welcomes Michele Ozumba, President and CEO of the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and Ashely Buffington a resident at the House of Dawn for pregnant and new mothers. Ms. Ozumba states that one out of five teenage girls in Georgia will become pregnant before the age of twenty totaling 21,000 pregnancies per year in Georgia. One out of every four teenagers who become pregnant will have a second child. Georgia currently ranks the highest for repeat teen births in the country. She encourages parents to talk to their kids early and create a relationship where kids can come to their parents and talk about peer pressures. Ashley states that becoming pregnant as a teenager was difficult and if she had it to do all over again she would have waited.

Pastor Brown states that over the years temptations have not changed. Drugs, sex and violence are more prevalent now on television, in the movies, on the Internet, through cell phones and on IPODS. There are 3 areas that make peer pressure more threatening such as: technology, the breakdown of the family and lack of communication. Families with school aged children should have Internet connections in places that are well traveled. Parents should make it a practice to put cell phones away at bed time. Kids often start experimenting at 8years old when most of them gain exposure to pornography. Parents must know it is not the 20th century. They must talk to their children and encourage them to postpone sex until marriage and prepare them with refusal skills.

Ms. Stevenson states that teaching children how to overcome peer pressure is important especially as preparations are being made for back to school. Teaching kids how to overcome peer pressure and combat some of the images teens are facing is important. Overcoming bullying, sex, drugs, alcohol gang violence are some of the massages that families learn in these theatrical productions. Melvin states that as a 14-year old actor, today’s youth need to hear these messages from other kids their age. He states that it makes a difference when they are not just hearing about overcoming peer pressure from their parents.

Statistics indicate that 1 out of every three girls are abused before the age of 18 and 1 out of every 5 boys are subjected to incest and molestation. To help families with answers, therapy and breaking the cycle of abuse help is available. By dealing with feelings such as anger, rejection and shame, women and men are overcoming the guilt that their abuse was their fault.

John McCain and Barack Obama shaking hands, in public, as the presumptive presidential nominees of their respective parties. The two appeared together at Saddleback Church in the Santa Ana Foothills to bare their soul -- at least a little bit. The two Presidential candidates quizzed by Warren each had an hour to answer the same questions. And in this church setting you knew the question about Christianity was coming. Warren has been criticized by some conservatives for not focusing more on abortion and gay marriage. But he didn't shy away from asking those questions. For Obama, sitting in front of a few thousand relatively conservative Evangelicals didn't make for the most comfortable setting. This forum gave voters a good idea at the candidates' differences. Still, Obama is breaking new ground for Democrats in his attempt to woo the Christian voting block. It is an active outreach designed to appeal across the faith spectrum. Will it work? Former Congressman J.C. Watts sees both sides. "I think we have to use discernment in seeing through what could possibly be the politics of it but I don't fault any party for reaching out to any demographics with their ideals and their ideas and with their plans," Watts said. 700 Club CBN NewsWatch 1:00:00 6:00 REC PA/O/E 08/20/2008 3:00 PM #082008 David Brody, CNB News Sr. National Correspondent WASHINGTON - One week from the Democratic convention and Barack Obama finds himself answering for a vote he made back in the Illinois state Senate. It centers on a bill called the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. The National Right to Life committee says Obama is misleading Americans over he opposed the bill and Obama told CBN News the pro-life group is lying. The Born Alive Infant Protection Act would have required medical attention for infants born alive during an attempted abortion. Obama voted against it more than once. Why? Obama says to protect Roe v. Wade and keep abortion legal. But even most abortion rights supporters say Roe wasn't at risk. In a statement to CBN News, the Obama campaign wouldn't address the charge that he has misrepresented his position on this bill. They don't believe it's necessary since there were multiple versions of the bill at different times. Instead they told CBN News "The suggestion that Obama - the proud father of two little girls - and others who opposed these bills supported infanticide is deeply offensive and insulting. The bills Senator Obama voted against in Illinois were crafted to undermine Roe v. Wade or pre-existing Illinois state law." Meanwhile, while the Obama campaign concedes that the language of the federal bill and the Illinois bill are the same, the implications would have been far different in each case. And so they say this is not so cut and dried. Plus they say Illinois state law already had language in place protecting infants born alive. 700 Club CBN NewsWatch 1:00:00 7:00 REC PA/O/E 09/19/2008 3:00 PM #091908 David Brody, CBN News reports: Before the conventions, white women supported Obama 50-42 percent. Now, there is a 20 point swing in favor of McCain. Enthusiasm is building too. Before Palin, only 12 percent were enthusiastic about McCain becoming president. Now it's 34 percent. In Ohio this week, she finished her speech and some people left while McCain was still talking. At rallies like the one near Youngstown Ohio you'll hear a lot of talk on the stage from Palin about her reformer image and maverick spirit, but the talk in the crowd is much different. It's a talk about her faith. Rev. Paul Riley and his wife Helen sat down exclusively with CBN News. As then pastor of Wasilla Assembly of God Church, he baptized 12-year-old Sarah in a lake not too far from town. The media has tried to dig deep into Palin's faith. Some critics take shots at her Pentecostal upbringing when they hear about people speaking in tongues or receiving the "gifts of the Holy Spirit." A Washington post cartoonist recently went as far as to suggest McCain was using Palin to communicate with God, but that God called it gibberish. Faith isn't the only subject under the spotlight. Questions, even from some conservatives, have come up about whether she's experienced enough to be Vice-President. And perhaps one of the most emotional issues comes down to family. Even some of her supporters wonder how a mother of five will be able to handle the role when she has an infant with Downs Syndrome and a 17-year-old who is pregnant. Those two examples may endear her to the pro-life movement, but bring up the important role of a mother.

But if they experienced the Christian co-housing community out in Bremerton, Wash., their main reaction might be one of envy. Because this "intentional neighborhood" is a beautiful mix of spacious town homes and open nature -- wide green spaces and cozy places. Bartimaeus Community is made up of mostly middle and upper middle class Christians who'd had it with the distant, cut-off way many Americans live. One thing members agreed to: work days to keep up the grounds around their clusters of town homes, and some common meals. But co-housing as a general lifestyle is having somewhat of a boom in the U.S. Some 113 co-housing projects already exist and 111 more are on their way. It seems not just Christians are having that urge to break out of the isolation represented by single-families cut off from one another in stand-alone homes. Sometimes, though, the mixing and the closeness can get a little too close. There have been clashes over such intensely personal choices. Communal idealist Guy admitted even he's had to face reality since moving into Bart Community.

It is a safety measure to know that your firewall or antivirus is solid. When shopping online always look for sites that you are familiar with and make sure that the BBB symbol is on the page. Before disclosing credit card information always make sure that the lock symbol and the “s” in front of the http in the web browser. Be cautious of pop-up boxes as they may contain viruses or spyware. Other potential hazards include responding to follow ups that ask you for additional information, people or companies that are fishing for your personal or credit card information and avoid giving any security codes over the phone. The state of GA has no law for return of exchange policies. It is the consumer’s responsibility to learn the return policy for companies you do business with. In today’s economy with many companies going out of business, gift cards do carry a risk. Consumers can end up stuck with unused gift cards. When buying a gift card, Mr. Elsberry suggests purchasing the ones that offer premiums or incentives. Consumers who are having problems with companies should contact the company first before calling the BBB. Once information is reported to the BBB it remains a permanent file on the consumer and the business.
