Charlotte, NC Author Publishes New Book











Charlotte, NC (Vocus/PRWEB) April 02, 2011

Soul Like a River, a new book by J.B. Morton, has been released by RoseDog Books.

“It’s a good read.”-Wendy Williams, Syndicated television and radio host.

“A treat for lovers of fiction.”- RAWSISTAZ REVIEWERS

“Make note of the name and make sure to digest this important work. His is a new, refreshing literary voice.”- Curtis Bunn, Founder, National Book Club Conference

The time is 1959, and the winds of change rip through the bucolic river town of Jordan, South Carolina. On the cusp of the civil rights movement in America, ethnic tensions reach a boiling point within a cauldron of clashing ideologies and faiths. A devout family—one intimately connected to the land—awaits the homecoming of the eldest son from up North. He has been away at the seminary for some six years. In a highly anticipated event, he arrives home with none other than the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., himself.

In the tumultuous weekend that follows, the mighty King electrifies Jordan, the gospel of freedom and, to some, integration upon his lips. But amidst the larger social conflict, another contrasting mindset intervenes, that embodied by the fiery young protagonist, Jimmy. A product of the mean streets of an urban ghetto, the precocious intruder is steeped in the militant ethos of Malcolm X. His worldview amounts to a bombshell within this isolated, genteel community, a potent source of moral confusion that will wreak havoc, threatening to rip little Jordan asunder. Once provoked, he vows to commit murder. Further, it is only a matter of time before he drops the cultural dynamite seething inside of him, coarsely asserting to his young country companions that the framed, blue-eyed, golden-haired “savior” looming with halo above Big Mama’s supper table is nothing of the sort, but rather just another “white man’s trick.”

Soul Like a River is a 284-page paperback with a retail price of $ 28.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-8165-3. Rose Dog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania published it.

Keystone Resort Pioneer Bill Bergman to be Inducted Into Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame 2012

Keystone Resort Pioneer Bill Bergman to be Inducted Into Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame 2012











Keystone Resort, Colorado

Keystone, CO (PRWEB) February 18, 2012

Bill Bergman will be inducted to the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame this October as a true ‘pioneer’ of the ski industry and one of the founders of Keystone Resort over 40 years ago.

Bergman worked closely with Max Dercum, who had the original dream of what Keystone Resort could become. Bergman possessed the business skills in their partnership and eventually partnered up with an investor- a dog food producer, named Ralston Purina, and turned the resort dream into reality. Bergman has been credited as the individual who transformed skiing into a corporate enterprise and laid down some of the practices and business templates that are still used at ski resorts across the world today. He was also Keystone Resort’s first president and the Bergman Bowl area was later named after him in honor of his contributions to the business.

The Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame induction event will take place this fall on October 26, 2012 at the Omni Resort in Broomfield, CO, where five new members will be honored.

Canine Celebrity Survivors of Michael Vick’s Dog Fighting Operation Sign Books, Greet Public in Pacifica, CA

Canine Celebrity Survivors of Michael Vick’s Dog Fighting Operation Sign Books, Greet Public in Pacifica, CA











The cover boy – Jonny Justice – will be greeting fans at Annabee’s this Saturday January 21, from 1-4pm.


Pacifica, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2012

Bay Area dog fans will have an opportunity to meet three dogs who survived Michael Vick’s dog fighting operation on Saturday, January 21, from 1-4pm. Dogs Jonny Justice, Teddles and Uba will be offering paw print autographs, friendly licks and photos in celebration of the launch of Melissa McDaniel’s third and newest book in The Photo Book Projects series, titled: “Pit Bulls & Pit Bull Type Dogs – 82 Dogs the Media Doesn’t Want You to Meet.”

The event is a fundraiser for BADRAP, the Oakland-based non-profit that participated in the landmark animal welfare case through the evaluation, rescue and recovery of Vick’s former dogs. BADRAP brought 13 of the dogs back to the SF bay area after a federal judge in Virginia cleared their release. All of the dogs – including Jonny, Teddles and Uba – have been adopted by local families. Each dog has earned his Canine Good Citizen Certification and Jonny went on to become a therapy dog, helping learning disabled children find the confidence to read.

Philadelphia-based portrait photographer Melissa McDaniel first spent time around pit bulls when she volunteered to photograph dogs at her local shelter several years ago. “I admit I was a little hesitant around these dogs at first since I had never spent much time around them and I believed the negative media hype. However, after the third or fourth pit bull type dog I photographed wanted nothing more than to wag his tail and lick my face, I quickly realized that the media has it all wrong.”

To create her latest book, McDaniel toured the US for six months, traveling 12,550 miles to photograph 82 pit bull or pit bull type dogs. She said, “Ever since I decided to create a series of photo books on dogs, I knew I would be devoting an entire book to pit bulls. You only have to visit your local shelter to understand why.”

BADRAP Director Donna Reynolds noted, “Watching Melissa work with the dogs was fascinating. She drew out their joyful natures and just poured their personalities into her photographs. These photos can probably do more to help the public see the souls of these dogs than just about anything we could ever hope to say or do!”

The event is Saturday, January 21 from 1-4pm at AnnaBee’s in the Pedro Point Shopping Center at Linda Mar Beach. Suggested donation five dollars. Directions to AnnaBee’s

Renowned Cornell Veterinarian Endorses Dog-Wa Liquid Pet Supplement to Create a Well-Balanced Diet

Renowned Cornell Veterinarian Endorses Dog-Wa Liquid Pet Supplement to Create a Well-Balanced Diet










Las Vegas and Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 13, 2008

Dog-Wa, a liquid concentrate that provides dogs with essential vitamins and nutrients from leafy greens needed to create a well-balanced diet, has been endorsed by Dr. Jane Leon, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, a distinguished graduate of Cornell Veterinary School of Medicine and well-known author and national radio and television personality.

In addition to her role as the Dog-Wa brand spokesperson, Dr. Jane Leon will be authoring a monthly column on the Dog-Wa website focusing on dog health, nutrition, digestion, holistic wellness, supplements, herbs, and diet.

“Dogs require micronutrients in their diet, but most pet owners are not able to satisfy their pets’ needs for those micronutrients found in greens,” Dr. Leon explained. “Dog-Wa is an excellent way to complement a dog’s diet to maximize ideal nutrition,” she added.

Dr. Leon is an expert in animal care, medicine, and surgery. She is currently a director on the board of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Central Florida, based in Orlando, Florida. Previously, she was on staff at the Omaha Vaccine Company, providing pet-related advice and information. She hosted “Ask the Veterinarian,” a daily television series on America’s Health Network and Fox’s Health Network. Dr. Leon has written three books, and is a contributing author for Canine Medicine and Disease Prevention, published by Animal Health Publications. Her efforts to improve the health of all animals include studying at the Los Angeles Zoo and at Woods Hole Marine Biology Laboratory.

“We are honored that Dr. Jane Leon has recommended Dog-Wa as an effective supplement providing the benefits of whole leafy greens in a dog’s diet,” said Matt Israel, founder and co-owner of Dog-Wa. “Her well-respected guidance in the complex world of veterinary medicine has helped thousands of concerned pet owners make safe and healthy decisions about caring for their animals.”

Recently, the U.S. Government updated its standards for pet nutrition for the first time in 23 years, and even the American Kennel Club agrees that leafy greens are an essential part of a dog’s healthy, well-balanced diet.

About Dog-Wa

A liquid concentrate of fresh peppermint and parsley, Dog-Wa provides dogs with essential vitamins and nutrients needed for a well-balanced diet. The fresh herbs aid digestion, soothe the stomach, freshen breath, and discourage gas. Nutrients in the herbs have been known to promote a shinier coat, stronger bones and teeth, healthier gums, and overall well-being. Adding Dog-Wa to water or mixing it into food daily offers the most effective solution to maintaining a dog’s optimum holistic good health. The cold-pressed, pesticide-free parsley and peppermint are holistically balanced and rich in Vitamins A and C, phytonutrients, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. There are no synthetic vitamin or mineral supplements, no alcohol, artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. Dog-Wa is available through specialty pet suppliers and select web-based retailers such as http://www.inthecompanyofdogs.com and http://www.healthypets.com. Please visit: http://www.dog-wa.com.
