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 Saturday nights, and on the Eddie and Tracy Show at 5pm on Fridays. 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!
Former Highlands High teacher Andrea Connors was sentenced today by Judge Stine in Campbell County Circuit Court after having pled guilty in June to one count of Sexual Abuse. Here is the low-down from your favorite legal analyst...ME!!
It was all hush hush today as the family of Andrea Connors huddled around her, waiting for her case to be called. When Judge Stine called Andrea's case, a shaken and visibly upset Andrea tearily stated her name and date of birth upon request. Prior to today, Andrea had met with the Campbell County Probation Department and provided them with information in order to prepare her Pre-Sentence Investigative Report. The Judge reviewed the PSI, letters from family and friends of Andrea, inlcuding a letter from former Cincinnati Police Chief Tom Streicher and letters from the victim's family. The defense argued for straight probation and no active jail time. Michelle Snodgrass, Campbell County Commonwealth Attorney, argued for 18 months to serve in the Kentucky Department of Corrections.
The Judge asked the same question we have all been asking: "WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE YOU THINKING?" The defense attempted to answer that question stating that Andrea had been diagnosed with depression/anxiety and that she expressed a great deal of remorse for her actions. Not surprisingly, her remorse began as soon as she was caught!! Earlier in the case, I was quite surprised when Andrea, seemingly out of nowhere, pled guilty, straight up to the crime she was indicted for. At the time, I opined that the Commonwealth must have a "smoking gun" and today that gun was revealed and it was a BIG GUN.
Andrea didn't just have a lapse in judgment or make a one time mistake as her friends tried to explain to the Judge in their letters pleading for leniency, OH NO!! This wasn't a one time event, this was a relationship with sex all over Campbell County, including her classroom, Andrea's parents house and a state park. REALLY??? Why would you take your underage lover to your parents house?? Well I guess since Andrea couldn't take him home since her HUSBAND and two children were there, Andrea's parents house seemed like a good alternative. Perhaps Andrea should have contacted Stacy Schuler's realtor and rented her condo by the hour.
I make light of this but in reality it really isn't that funny... as Michelle Snodgrass said while making her argument, this is no "Atta Boy" kind of situation. The victim in this case has been hospitalized 4 times for his own medical issues as a result of ANDREA'S ILLEGAL CONDUCT... I wonder if the victim had been hospitalized for physical injuries sustained as result of ANDREA's criminal activity if she would have been sentenced more harshly...
People suck..YES...it's true!!...The population is full of self-absorbed, jerks who care more about money and sex than anything else. And then there are dog people. You know the kind, they slow down if a lost dog is in the road and faithfully walk their 4 legged friends on a daily basis swinging their poop bags with pride...I am a dog person!! My parents raised me with a healthly appreciation for all animals, especially dogs. In fact, without my dog Corey, I would never have met my husband. Corey is a Brittany Spaniel I adopted from a family who could no longer care for him...long story short...no matter how many times he ran through the shock field, he was never deterred... and so I called a fencing company, they built the fence, and a year later I married the fence company's owner.
So a few years later...along came our son and with him we decided he needed his own dog. All boys need a dog! My husband, having always wanted a Rottweiler, contacted a breeder in Warren County and right around our son turning six weeks old, we picked up our six week old Rottweiler and named him Ziggy. Most people thought we were sadists, a new baby and a new puppy?? And yes, the first few months were rough...but then there were times like this...simply amazing!! and this takes me to, drum roll please.....
LISA'S LAB OF THE WEEK!! I volunteer for Cincinnati Lab Rescue!! And from now on I will try my best on a weekly basis to update this blog with a Lab that needs a forever home.

I'll be at St. Pius X Summer Festival tonight at 6pm! You can find me beating the heat in the dunking booth! Bikini or wet t-shirt?! I can't decide. Either way, it will be hot. Of course, with this weather, everything is hot! In fact, I never thought I'd be so happy making a public appearance in a dunking booth. With my luck, in weather like this, I usually agree to something ridiculously hot like working the grill. Not this time though! I lucked out! Come out and see me. St. Pius X is in Edgewood, KY on Dudley Road. It's a great festival. Tons of kids rides, beer, charitable gaming, and, well, me!
Lots more going on but it seems like all anyone can talk about it the weather. The Reds have two more games before the All-Star break (see, I'm trying to pay attention to sports)! They went on a skid for a bit but won yesterday. Our starting pitchers have been doing great for a change but now our relief pitchers are falling apart. Typical Cincinnati sports luck! Why can't this town ever get a team that fires on all cylinders?! Look at that, a car analogy while talking sports... I'll get the hang of this guy's stuff yet and then the rest of the boys at this station are in trouble!
World Choir Games are all the buzz too. I know the WCG have taken a lot of ribbing from other on-air personalities at this station. OK, so there aren't any actual "games" and it's really not a sport so maybe they shouldn't have called them "games" but grow up boys. I don't care if Scott Sloan can find a hotel room or not. I've been downtown and there's people all over the place, speaking all sorts of foreign languages. That's certainly not normal for this town, so I'm sure we've got a lot of visitors/tourists. So tease 'em all ya want but any tourism we can bring to the Queen City has to be good for business. Maybe if they can attract a couple more of these type things, then City Council can forget that stupid property tax increase idea!
