Biographer Leo Honeycutt is with us on his birthday this morning to discuss the release of his upcoming biography Nice Guy Finishes First: The Clarke Williams Story. Leo's biography tells the story of how Clarke took over his parents Oak Ridge Telephone company after serving in WWII, and turned it into today's third largest network provider in the country: CenturyLink.

Suzanne Terrell, the former elections commissioner and U.S. Senate candidate, joins us as our second guest this morning. In 2002 Suzie lost to U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu in a December runoff, and today she talks with Jim about the need for more female politicians in Louisiana politics.

Also, here to follow up on Mark Ballard's article written in The Advocate concerning Bill Cassidy's lakefront home in Baton Rouge is local attorney and realtor Steve Myers. Steve closes out the show today with Jim to discuss property taxes, property tax exemptions, and much more.
