Who are we letting teach and coach our kids? Radio discussion coming Wednesday

 WPEG-FM (97.9) morning radio personality "No Limit" Larry Mims will host a panel discussion at 6:45 a.m. Wednesday morning (3/21) entitled "Who are you letting teach your kids?"

Mims is concerned with the kinds of advice young people are getting from some coaches and teachers. Joining Mims will be a Barbara Hudson, a local teacher, and Ed Addie, who is president of the AAU Queen City Athletic Association and head coach at Kennedy Charter School.

"It's about how we are dealing with people's kids," Mims said. "We want to help show people the right way to do things. Some of the coaches out there are teaching kids to cheat to get ahead. We thought coach Addie and Mrs. Hudson were good examples of people who do things the right way."
