In the early months of 2011, Lisa contacted 700 WLW regarding the possibility of becoming a legal analyst. Over the next several months, Lisa came on-air as a guest for all of the talented full-time hosts. Lisa's witty and thought provoking analysis of current legal issues made her a preferred guest. In the fall of 2011, Lisa requested her own show and 700 WLW ran a contest called "Talk Show Idol." While it was a close race, Lisa came out on top!
Lisa's on-air schedule varies but you can usually hear her on Sunday afternoons. During the rest of the week, Lisa is a licensed and practicing attorney in Ohio and Kentucky. Like her website says, Lisa is a fearless, savvy, and aggressive attorney dedicated to defending victims of wrongful prosecution.
As the only female host on 700 WLW, she is the minority. Often teased, Lisa plays up the fact that she is the only girl in the locker room. Questions?? Email Lisa!
Last week, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that the Pentagon changed its long standing policy against women in combat roles. The branches have until mid-May to come up with a plan on how to implement these changes. The signed directive will open front-line posts to the approximately 200,000 women now serving in the active duty military. Prior the signing of the directive, women were precluded from specialities such as armor, artillery and infantry since 1994.
GOOD IDEA? I don't think so...
Don't get me wrong, I am all for women serving in whatever capacity they desire in the military. HOWEVER, I am firmly against any social expirement that would undermine any aspect of our military's effectiveness. In no way am I saying that my opinion is a reflection on a female military member's courage, fitness or ability to do the job. Rather, it is more a reflection of how our country views women. Do you really believe for one minute if a female military member is captured, tortured, mutiliated, AND all of this is broadcasted via the web, our country wouldn't demand we send in Seal Team Six to rescue her?? Until our country devalues women's lives to the same level we do our male counterparts we are simply placing a LARGE TARGET on every woman who wants to serve on the front lines.
Harsh? Yes, but that is reality.
Yesterday, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones had a good idea, he proposed school districts hire retired police officers to serve as substitute teachers. Before I went to law school, I worked as a substitute teacher for Campbell County Schools for about six months. The hours and pay were great and the system worked flawlessly with an automated system calling my cell phone the night before my services were in need with a specific assignment I could accept or reject. I do not think I needed any special training to be a substitute teacher (I am not sure if that has changed) all Campbell County required was proof of my Bachelor's Degree, background check and signing off on a review of the substitute teacher handbook. Interestingly, I do not think the handbook had a section on sexual relationships with students, however, as somebody with common sense, moral decency and appropriate taste in men, this was NOT an issue for me.
So I did a little digging and it looks like in Butler County and Warren County in order to be a substitute teacher you must have the following credentials:
1. Bachelor's Degree (ability to apply for Ohio Department of Substitute License)
2. Valid Teaching Credential Issued by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE)
So how much do sub's get paid? Well that depends on the school...currently the rates are:
Fairfield - $75.00/day
Hamilton - $85.00/day
Monroe - $80.00/day
Lakota - $75.00/day
The rates can increase depending on the duration of the assignment. Would former officers/deputies be willing to accept these assignments for this amount of money? HELL YES...the officers/deputies would be able to accept retirment pay, substitute teacher pay and be eligible for the State Teacher Retirment System. Anyone else want to double skinny dip? NICE...
And besides nothing helps restore the virility of a retired cop like scaring a teenager with his gun. I'm ALL FOR IT!
