George Golubovskis recently made national and international news when he ran as a write-in candidate for mayor in Traverse City.

In this special edition of IN FOCUS, Kimberli and Anthony get the rest of the story from an articulate, thoughtful man who will likely shatter nearly every stereotype you've ever had about someone who is homeless.

A Carbon Tax Gaining Steam -This edition of iCR features two volunteers from the local chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby. Elizabeth Dell and Maura Brennan. The CCL is a national effort with chapters growing in number across Michigan, aimed at creating the political atmosphere and support for a revenue neutral carbon tax. Taxing carbon use is an effective method of reducing carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels. Our reliance on fossil fuel is diminished by a tax and the tax revenues are redistributed equally as rebates to individuals, much like an income tax refund. If carbon emissions are not brought under control our planet will continue to warm up and the climate will be forced to change dramatically.

This discussion is with Jim Crowfoot, Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan. Professor Crowfoot has developed a credit course open to most incoming UM students regardless of major. In his class Jim Crowfoot seeks to guide students towards development of their own spiritual connection to the natural world around them. So many incoming students, he finds, suffer from a very real 'nature deficit'. Without a spiritual connection to nature the meaning of "eco-social communities", so important to Resilience thinking, is lost. Human communities are still fundamentally rooted in the natural world and the eco-system services it provides.

I. NATIONAL SPEAKER DR. SCOTT LIVELY (www.defendthefamily.com) gives his personal testimony – starting with 15 years of alcohol and drug addition, living on the streets across America; moving on miraculously to become first a Christian and then a pro-family activist, lawyer and pastor – teaching on the homosexual activists’ agenda in 30 countries of the world, including 1 year speaking to government officials in 50 cities throughout Russia. Shares part 1 of 2 parts about the Secular History of the Gay Rights Movement, up to Alfred Kinsey, the Father of the Sexual Revolution. Dr. Lively argues that: This entire culture war that we are dealing with comes down to a conflict of TWO WORLD VIEWS ABOUT SEXUALITY: (#1) On the one hand is the worldview that says SEX BELONGS INSIDE OF MARRIAGE; it’s not allowed outside of marriage; and that SOCIETY HAS AN OBLIGATION TO DISCOURAGE SEX OUTSIDE OF (TRADITIONAL) MARRIAGE. (#2) The alternative to that is having ANYTHING GOES SEXUALITY – CALLED ‘SEXUAL FREEDOM. [Follow along with extensive SHOW #1 NOTES at www.TCFamily.org.] II. LOCAL NORTHWEST MICHIGAN SPEAKER BILL WIESNER (www.TCFamily.org) shares for 2.5 minutes at the beginning about the 9 Conference hours video taped of Dr. Lively, which will all be shown over the coming months; includes street pictures (and sound tracks) of the 4x8 Truth Academy about Homosexuality sign downtown at the 2013 Film Festival for 20 hours, where we passed out over 700 of Dr. Lively’s FACT SHEET ON UGANDA AND HOMOSEXUALITY to movie-goers, written in response to the blatant misinformation shown in the 2013 Traverse City Film Festival movie entitled God Loves Uganda. Read Dr. Lively’s response to the movie at www.TCFamily.org.
