Rob's Journal

Thursday, December 13, 2001... It's hard to believe that another year is almost over. I remember when we were wondering if the world was going to stop on its axis as we approached 2000, then 2001. It's been unusually warm here in central North Carolina, with a drought until the past few days, when we have gotten some much-needed rainfall. The promise of a cold period beginning Sat may invite more feelings of the approaching Christmas season. For now, I get in my holiday mood by watching the Yule movies and television specials. A few more days to go and the first semester is over. This has been a positive experience for me; one that I won't soon forget. I had worked with learning disabled students at South Rowan, when some would take my theatre classes from time to time, but this is the first time I have had the challenge of teaching them English. Final exams are coming up next week, and then we are home for 2 weeks or so, returning to a new semester and new classes, on Jan 3rd. On a completely different note, on the way home a few weeks ago, I had the radio dial on scan, and discovered a conservative, 61-year-old, African-American radio host by the name of Ken Hamblin (sp). Brother Hamblin, as he is called by many, has been the voice of conservatism in Denver for 7 years. Locally, he is heard on WLXN AM 1440 in Lexington, beginning at 3 in the afternoon, ET. Due to the weakness of the station's signal, I can usually only hear the first hour of what I imagine is a two-hour broadcast. He impresses me with his knowledge, and insight. Going into work in the morning, it has to be Bob and Sherri. Bob Lacey and Sherri Lynch, that is. Originating from nearby 107.9 in Charlotte, this duo is heard on 60 stations around the country. The chemistry between the two makes the program easy to listen to, and there's something about hearing " Bob and Sherri.. Good Morning" that has an air of sincerity to it. Yes, with the hour drive to and from North Rowan, my time is spent with the radio. These days, I'm more inclined to talk radio than music. With 12 days until Christmas, and the cards yet to be mailed, I thank you for being with me here at David Roberson . Com.
