Legal Veterans Institute: Helping Those Who Sacrificed For Us – Meet Antoinette Balta

"You don't have to serve in the military to be a patriot. There's no shortage of ways to give back in this country. We're blessed so why not pay it forward." - Antoinette Balta Veterans sacrifice so much for this country. And when we think about helping them, it’s usually about blankets. Or providing shelter. Or food. We hardly ever think about the legal challenges they face. But Antoinette did. She saw a need. A growing need for legal services that needed a response. Someone needed to step up. And so she did. Now Antoinette and the other attorneys at the Veterans Legal Institute now represent those who sacrifice so much for us. She embodies the type of guest we love to have on this podcast. That is someone who believes in purpose over profit. Listen and Subscribe via iTunes Listen & Subscribe via Stitcher [...]

Wait, I think I see something.  No, that's last month's issue. You grab another beer, thinking that if you wait long enough ... it will arrive. People around you laugh.  Life is good.  But you're wondering, seriously thinking "When is BeerPaper going to arrive?"  It's become a bit of a ritual.  A monthly routine.  Grab a beer.  Read the newest edition. Just then, a tall gentlemen walks in.  Ball cap on his head.  A stack of newly minted newspapers in his hand.  He cuts the strap, releasing the newspapers to the world. You grab your copy of BeerPaper.  You can almost feel the heat from printing press.  It smells so new.  And feels just right. [...]

Having that Difficult Conversation with your Elderly Parents – Meet Helen Dolas

"Music in combination with the other arts transforms individuals. It's the bridge that allows our students to have personal expression and connect with other people." - Helen Dolas It's easy for most of us.  Get dressed in the morning.  Grab coffee.  Drive to work. But for some of us, we're trapped in our bodies.  Or trapped in our heads.  And the simplest activity requires help. Autism.  Down Syndrome.  Cerebral Palsy. But Helen Dolas has found a way to reach these people.  To let them express themselves through music.  And art. Art is not limited to only those with high IQ's.  Or to those with all their limbs.  Or full mobility. Art is for everyone.  Art is expression.  Art is community. Maria, one of the people that Able Arts helped, would like to say something to you. Four years ago, this wasn't possible.  Maria has Cerebral Palsy.  She can only move [...]
