Memo to EPA- Who's Protecting our Kids (And Yours Too)? - By Deirdre Imus, October 17, 2018 - As someone who has advocated for the health of children and our planet for more than two decades, I was disheartened to learn earlier this month that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) put Dr. Ruth Etzel, a pediatric epidemiologist and director of its Office of Children’s Health Protection, on “administrative leave.” This comes just a few months after the EPA decided to dissolve a program dedicated specifically to studying the effects of pollution and chemicals on children’s health. It is a one-two punch to the gut.

Exclusive Interview: Deirdre Imus Is on a Mission to Save Our Kids and Remove Toxins - Alpha Rising spent time with Deirdre Imus and got an exclusive tour of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in NJ.

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

Methylation Diet and Lifestyle by Dr. Kara Fitzgerald & Romilly Hodges, MS, CNS - The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

Imus Ranch Foundation 

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

Kinky Friedman

Kinky Friedman has performed with Bob Dylan, traveled with Led Zeppelin on their private plane, and partied with John Belushi, Robin Williams, Don Imus, Lowell George, Levon Helm, Eric Clapton, Iggy Pop, Mike Bloomfield, and Dennis Hopper. When his cocaine habit nearly killed him, he returned to Texas and wrote 30 books, including 18 detective novels, as well as memoirs with Willie Nelson and Billy Bob Thornton. More than 547,000 Texans voted for him when he ran for governor in 2006, and friends Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffet, and Lyle Lovett helped with fundraisers.

Kinky Friedman is a true Renaissance man, and in EVERYTHING’S BIGGER IN TEXAS: The Life and Times of Kinky Friedman (Backbeat Books Hardcover, November 2017, $29.99), biographer Mary Lou Sullivan provides an intimate look at Richard “Kinky” Friedman culled from hours of candid, in-depth interviews with the Kinkster, his friends, and his associates.

Kinky was a child chess prodigy, a camp counselor, and a Red Cross-certified swimming instructor. In the 60s, he picketed segregated businesses while in college and served in the Peace Corps in Borneo. A singer/songwriter/satirist who called his country band the Texas Jewboys, Kinky was the “first full-blooded Jew” to play the Grand Ole Opry and put on the only show in Austin City Limits’ history deemed too offensive to air.

He’s been a columnist, politician, entrepreneur (Kinkajou Records, Kinky Friedman’s Private Stock Politically Correct Salsa and Dip, Kinky Friedman Cigars, Man in Black Tequila), and animal activist who co-founded the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, a no-kill shelter in Texas. Never one to let age define him, at 70, Kinky released his first studio album in thirty-nine years and toured the country to promote it on his Resurrected Tour.

On November 15th, Kinky and his biographer, Mary Lou Sullivan, will go on the road for the “Everything’s Bigger in Texas” book and music tour.

Tour dates are as follows:
November 4th – Texas Book Festival - Austin
November 15th - The Townsend - Austin
November 16th - The Mucky Duck - Houston
November 17th - Poor David’s Pub - Dallas
November 18th - McCabe’s Guitar Store - Los Angeles
