Callers are calling Tom on WNIR now, wanting to talk about something they saw on the news, and he keeps refusing to talk about itk, and bleeping them out. What new story is he avoiding? Just curious.

Ericson (real name Thomas Nagel) will not talk about his daughters animal shelter being shut down for inhumane living conditions. Heather Nagel is commander and chief of the" non profit " Heaven Can Wait rescue mission. She critcized the Akron Animal Shelter for years and is obviously no better than them.Her non profit status allows her to take donations from idiots and then, she can spend up to 97% of the money on herself. Tom Ericson has been very vocal about the Mayor Don recall vote and claims this "attack" on his daughters house is politically motivated.
He'll probably claim that the deputy mayors broke into Heaven Can Wait and they were the ones that shit all over the place. But don't worry. Warner mendenhal is Heathers attorney. With his political saaxy in costing Akron Over $200,000 in a useless recall, he should be able to get Heather off with only 20 years in prison.
I think she should be charged with cruelty and fraud as well as probably tax evasion.
Claiming to rescue animals and letting them live in filth is really a scummy thing to do.
Bet people feel good about donating now !

you can copy and paste this to see that H.Nagel is in a foreclosure.
Wonder if she'll use Heaven Can Wait money to get out of it.

I hope the animals that were taken from the house find good homes. Remember, this is all about helpless animals.

The house was filthy, officials said feces covered the floors and the animals had feces matted in their fur. They had been trying to inspect the house for more than a hear and Tom's daughter's "rescue" organization refused to let them in! They had to get a warrant and when they did, the condemned the rotting pile of garbage and immediately removed over 100 animals that HEATHER was abusing.
This is Tom Erickson's daughter, the women he praised weekly on his show. Now, he can't handle the heat and refuses to talk about it. What a yellow-belly coward he is. Face the music Tom, or get your pansy ass off the air. You can talk trash about all kinds of people you think you are better than, while your daughter throws dogs and cats into a den of feces, maggots, and garbage.
Look at these pics of the disgusting house Tom's daughter abused animals in"

Listen to an official talk of the horrific conditions:

You should be ashamed of yourself Tom and be man enough to admit you were wrong about your daughter and apologize to your listeners for supporting a group that abuses animals.

Listen to Heather lie her ass off.

City trash cans? Why then Heather was there waste all over the house and all over the animals? Why was the house condemned if you fixed all the issues? Heather is a liar and a pig. She should never be allowed to care fo an animal again and should be thrown in jail.

thank god we couldn't smell that basement! Gross. Of course, if people would fix their animals there would be no need for shelters. If you can't afford $50 spay/neuter you can't afford an animal. Last week it was a story about a man who started w/just a couple of cats and ended up w/ 50. The pound may charge more but the animal is spayed before you take it home

We've gone into homes like this over and over in Canton. Years ago I put together a study looking at the dangers of animal hoarding. Every single time these people think they are doing the animals a world of good and they are completely convinced that they are right and that the animals are living in healthy conditions. Thanks for posting the pictures TEHNB...reminds me of the case we had two years ago with one of our "home" animal shelters. You may remember the raid at a Stark Co. Farm where both defendants nearly went to jail because of the public health conditions?

It's a shame that Tom doesn't want to talk about this issue. I guess it's OK when you're daughter is on the air talking and selling her charity to the masses....but when the crap hits the fan, yep, censorship.

Someone on another message board commented that Tom and his daughter have probably been advised by legal counsel not to publicly comment about this right now. I was not listening, but read that he mentioned several times that he wished he could, but could not.

That said, I don't want to lose sight of the fact that the person(s) running the shelter had good intentions, but as happens frequently in these situations, they got in over their heads. Most of these shelters run solely on donations, and in this economy, they probably don't get as much now as they once did. It's a shame, because I truly believe they are trying to do the right thing with the animals, but in the end, it doesn't turn out that way. It's a shame that the animals suffer, and a bigger shame that some will wind up euthanized anyway. As someone else mentioned previously, if people would spay/neuter their pets, this wouldn't be such a huge problem.
