Entertainment was often what could be found on the radio and Woodrey’s family tuned to 700 WLW to listen to the Cincinnati Reds games. In all of his years, Woolrey had never been taken out to the ballgame.

  • Everyone knows what it is like to be afraid. We all have things that we are afraid of.  Some people are afraid of storms or spiders, and some people are terrified of snakes.  There are hidden fears that motivate us, too. Fear of failure causes many people to never start or even try anything that is not completely safe. Fear of rejection makes us afraid to do anything that could draw criticism or give someone a chance to laugh at us.
