8:45 Open For Business with Ken McLean from Prestige Senior Living Arbor Place. www.PrestigeCanHelp.com
Ken and Bill talk about ways to communicate better with people suffering from memory or cognitive decline.
-If a loved one is living with cognitive decline, it’s important they retain a sense of value and belonging in their relationships.
-A critical way of encouraging that is ensuring they remain part of conversations and social events, but with that comes adjustments for loved ones.
-Among the things you can do to help ensure someone with cognitive decline remains included in conversations and gatherings:
- Minimize distractions in their company
When you’re having a conversation, turn off the TV, radio or any music that may be playing and allow the focus to be on the conversation.
- Don’t interrupt or finish a thought
As someone is telling a story, they may grasp for details or repeat themselves. Allow them space to do so – interrupting them or jumping in to finish their story can be discouraging and make them reluctant to try again in the future.
- Ask direct questions
People with cognitive decline can struggle with open-ended questions. For instance, asking ‘What would you like to do today?’ forces them to consider options and try to come to a decision. Instead, ask “Would you like to go for a walk?” or offer another activity they enjoy. Yes or no questions help direct their focus.
- Stay upbeat
It can be difficult watching a loved one struggle to remember names, details or shared memories. That said, they’ll be able to pick up on any sadness, frustration or negativity through your facial expressions and body language. Always try to focus on the positive.
- Recognize when a break would be welcome
If you sense frustration creeping in, change the topic in conversation, or suggest a different activity – maybe a walk or a change of location. You can even just lean in for a hug or take their hand for support.
-At Prestige Senior Living Arbor Place, we have resources available to help you and your loved one through the journey of cognitive decline, and our team is here to help.
– At our website, you can download a free guide that covers a wide variety of topics related to cognitive health, including information about the different stages of memory loss, advice for those living with cognitive decline and their caregivers, tips on tending to mental health, cognitive assessments, memory games and much more.

6:20 CHEF JET TILA, Co-Host of the Halloween Cookie Challenge Monday nights on FOOD NETWORK.
Tila grew up in his family’s restaurant kitchens and markets in Los Angeles, home to the world’s largest Thai population outside of Thailand. As a boy, he spent time learning the ancient traditions of Asian cuisine from his Cantonese grandmother and working in the famed Bangkok Market, which opened in 1972, and Royal Thai restaurant, which opened in 1978. “I call it birth luck,” he says. “I was born into the ‘first family’ of Thai food in Los Angeles. My parents came here separately in 1966 and went on to open the first restaurants and grocery stores in this country and I was the kid doing homework in the back corner of the restaurant.”
Tila’s current and future projects promise to bring him and his culinary skills to more prominence. He is currently working with the Compass Group to open Modern Asian Kitchen, a fast-casual Pan-Asian concept with locations nationwide, and is branching out on his own to open Kuma Snowcream, a shaved-ice concept launching in Las Vegas in spring 2013-the product of which he says is “like fresh, powdered snow, but that is creamy and tastes like ice cream.” “At this point, I am interested in creating concepts, not just one-offs,” he says. “I am and always will be a chef, but I am also always interested in new ways to combine cooking, business, and communication, since I enjoy all of them as much as I enjoy teaching people about where I come from through my food.” Tila currently lives in Los Angeles with wife, Allison, their two children, as well as two dogs.

8:15 Prof. John Ellis – More on John: www.encounterbooks.com/authors/john-m-ellis/
John M. Ellis, a professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz, recounted 50 years of frustration in his 2020 book, “The Breakdown of Higher Education: How It Happened, the Damage It Does, and What Can Be Done.” Ellis declared that “campuses are now miserable caricatures of what they once were” and called for repression as the answer. He demanded “the removal of radical activists who politicize classrooms” and urged state legislatures to “investigate and then cancel funding for departments that are found to be hopelessly corrupted.” When colleges and universities have so willfully ignored the purposes for which their independence was granted and have corrupted themselves beyond their ability to self-repair, only outside intervention can restore them to the purpose for which they were created.

Here’s an article illustrating what Prof. Ellis says you can’t let the “Woke” get away with…the claim that pulling back on woke violates academic freedom.

6:35 China Analyst/Tech Advisor Scott Spacek, author of the thriller China Hand
Rumors of Chairman Xi Coup? We discuss that and more.
Scott Spacek, author of China Hand. Originally from Cleveland, Scott Spacek has lived in China for most of the last two decades, working as a technology executive and advisor to leading corporations and governmental organizations. He attended Harvard University and speaks Mandarin Chinese. Teaching at an elite university in Beijing after college provided revealing details for CHINA HAND, his first novel.
INSPIRED BY ACTUAL EVENTS: When a high-ranking Chinese general wants to defect to the US, the CIA tries to recruit a recent Harvard grad teaching at a Beijing university to exfiltrate the man’s daughter – a treacherous operation that could shape the balance of power for decades.
The whole debacle was classified and buried. Until now.
It’s 1998, and China’s political and military leaders are torn by ideological divisions. Amid these seething rivalries, Andrew Callahan arrives in Beijing fresh out of Harvard, planning to spend an adventurous year studying Mandarin and teaching at the renowned International Affairs University. The IAU is known as a training ground for diplomats and spies. But Andrew has no idea that his budding relationship with the attractive and self-assured dean’s assistant, Lily Jiang, will also entangle him in a conspiratorial web of worldwide proportions.
A CIA officer approaches Andrew and informs him that Lily’s father is a top Chinese general caught in a power struggle. The general wants to defect but won’t do so without his wife and daughter. Even more shocking is that the Agency needs Andrew’s assistance for Lily to evade round-the-clock surveillance and escape to the US.
If Andrew agrees, he’ll face lethal odds against China’s ruthless security services to help pull off one of the greatest intelligence coups in American history. If he refuses, it could cost Lily and her family their lives.
Set against the backdrop of a beautiful culture at a turbulent time, China Hand is the story of a reluctant spy and a mission whose deadly consequences continue to reverberate today.

The City of Phoenix
By Dennis Powers
The first resident of what later became Phoenix was Samuel Colver, who in 1851 took out a donation land claim. He built a cabin on what is presently Highway 99 in Phoenix. With the discovery of gold in Jacksonville, miners and settlers came into the Rogue Valley in numbers, including around where Colver had his land. In 1854, he laid out the town, which was known then as Gasburg.
As the story goes, numbers of young bachelors were in the town and working at the local flour mill, but with very few young, marriageable women. Kate Clayton was helping to cook for the men at the mill and had different admirers. She was about twenty years old, but had a remarkable ability to carry on different conversations with her smitten men, while she was cooking at the same time. Owing to her skills at conversation and not missing an order, she received the nickname of “Gassy Kate.” When the men were deciding on the name for the town, the men came to naming it after Kate as “Gasburg.”
The owner of the grist mill was Sylvester Wait, who was also an agent for the Phoenix Insurance Company of Hartford, Connecticut. When the post office was established at the mill in 1857, he took the large metal, insurance-company plate and attached it to the front of his building as the name of the post office. Although it took time for the residents to stop calling the town as Gasburg, it eventually took the name of the post office of Phoenix.
When the railroad came through in 1884, Phoenix was on the line and a possible nominee for the county seat. Nearby Medford won the nod and became the county seat and largest city in Jackson County. The city of Phoenix was incorporated in 1910 when the area’s Orchard Boom was taking place.
Phoenix was and still is centrally located in being close to Medford. Residents lived in homes built over time and commuted to jobs that changed from lumbering, orchards, and agriculture to technology, medical, tourism, and more service oriented. It still retains the charm of those yesteryears.

11:10 Ken Cuccinelli Senior Fellow at Center for Renewing America and Former Department of Homeland Security Deputy Secretary.
What does immigration in the national interest look like? Ask Ken Cuccinelli, who served first as the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and then as the acting deputy secretary for the Department of Homeland Security 7 during the Trump administration. In this capacity, one of Ken’s guiding principles was that “America’s immigration system is first and foremost, for the benefit of America.”
During his tenure, Ken oversaw changes to enhance protections for American workers and the American public, including reforms to the public charge rule, tightening of foreign guest worker programs, more robust naturalizations standards and improvements to the adjustment of status process.

New York Times Censors Dick Morris Book on Trump
The New York Times’ bestsellers list appears to be censoring Newsmax host Dick Morris and his new bestseller, The Return: Trump’s Big 2024 Comeback. “The Return” is topping several bestseller lists, including Amazon, Publisher’s Weekly, and others, but is nowhere to be found on the Times’ nonfiction list. Based on retail sales compiled by Bookscan for the week of Aug. 28, “The Return” should be No. 4 on the Times’ list. [more…]
Trump Docs Could Be Used Against FBI in 2023
By Dick Morris
My top predictions about the Mar-a-Lago documents:
- U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon’s decision to grant the Trump team’s special master request will be sustained, after the DOJ appeal.
- There won’t be enough incriminating documents to formally indict Trump in a grand-jury setting.
- The Republicans will claim the majority in the House and Senate chambers for the upcoming midterm elections (Nov. 8).
- Starting as early as January 2023, House GOP investigators will put the FBI and DOJ under further scrutiny, in terms of explaining or justifying the FBI’s Aug. 8 raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, along with the House hearings on the Jan. 6, 2021 unrest at the Capitol.
The Mar-a-Lago documents will be Exhibits A, B, and C in the case against the FBI. Regarding the document dispute, Morris believes Trump’s legal team has a strong case of historical precedent on their side – due to the wide-ranging scope of the Presidential Records Act. [more…]
Dick’s #1 bestselling book, The Return: Trump’s Big 2024 Comeback.

The City of Rogue River
By Dennis Powers
The town owes its start to a card shark named Davis “Coyote” Evans, who built cabins and a ferry in 1851 to cross the Rogue River near where Evans Creek poured into the Rogue. A swinging footbridge was later built for prospectors to cross at “Tailholt” for the gold on Evans Creek.
As the story goes, if miners couldn’t pay the toll to cross the river, they crossed by pulling their horse into the river, then grabbing its tail to hold on as it swam across. Thus, the name given to the tiny settlement was Tailholt. Some feel that the name meant more than crossing the Rogue. “Tailholt” could also mean, to some, that the settlers had found a tough life, but it was more dangerous to let go, having made a “tail-hold” there: A tailholt was better than no holt at all.’”
Building a home and store of boards milled on Evans Creek in the early 1870s, John Woods picked the location at Tailholt. This was not only where people and mail were dropped off for the prospectors working Evans Creek, but also where folks crossed the Rogue for the other side. Although it wasn’t an official stage stop, Woods kept an extra team of horses for the stage line.
As the industrious Woods ran his general store and added a post office, people stayed at the location. Establishing the post office in his home in 1876 as the town’s first postmaster, he named the town as Woodville. When the Oregon & California Railroad came there, set up a station stop, the next stop being Gold Hill, Woodville gained in importance in 1884.
With nearby Medford and undergoing the early-1900s Orchard Boom, the first bridge to allow wagons, buggies, and teams to cross to the other side was constructed in 1909. The residents then decided in 1912 a new name would be better and voted for its incorporation as the City of Rogue River.
Mr. H.B. Taylor in 1910 bought John Wood’s place. Tearing down the old structure, he replaced it with a new one named the Waldorf Rooms Hotel. The hotel was a popular place for not only the “drummers” (the salesmen traveling over the railroad line), but for tourists and passers-by, alike.
As sawmills and farming gave way to tourism and commuting for work, the Rogue River Rooster Crow started up in 1953 to publicize the city. Since that time, its National Rooster Crow Championship has been held on the last Saturday in June. The three-day festival kicks off on Friday with a dinner at the Rogue River Community Center and ends on Sunday with an antique and “sporty” car show.
A five-minute drive from its downtown, Orin Palmerton had operated a plant and tree nursery with many domestic and exotic trees that eventually became the property of the city. Rogue River maintains this beautiful setting with Evans Creek on one side as part of its park system. Palmerton Park is an arboretum (a place for the study and exhibit of trees) with 96 distinct tree specimens, including pines from Japan, cedars from the Mediterranean, and large coastal redwoods native to the Pacific Northwest.
Buildings and brides were replaced. For example, the Waldorf became the Walling Old Inn after World War II; Gulf Oil bought the Inn in 1967, tore it down, and built a service station. Located in the Hatch House constructed in 1909, the Woodville Museum in Rogue River opened in 1986 with numerous, interesting exhibits about the town’s life. The bridge over the river was replaced in 1950, and then again in 2006. This project attracted national attention, as the designers employed a “slow slide” to move the 550-ton, 300-foot long bridge into its final position.
Located some 20 miles northwest of Medford on I-5, it has survived the Rogue River floods of 1955 and 1964. Over 100 years later, the city of Rogue River is still known for its fishing, rafting, and beautiful scenery along the river, not to mention its history and future.
