About Herman Cain
HERMAN'S YOUTH AND THE AMERICAN DREAM  Herman Cain grew up in Atlanta, Georgia with loving parents and little else. His father worked three jobs—as a janitor, a barber and a chauffeur—and his mother was a domestic worker. Even though these jobs required hard work and little glamour, his parents knew this life was better than the dirt farms upon which they grew up. They also knew that this hard work was the key to achieving their American Dreams.  Herman’s parents had two dreams. First, they wanted to own their own house. Secondly, they wanted both of their children to graduate from college. During the segregation era in the Deep South, these aspirations might have seemed lofty, but they knew that if they kept their faith in God, faith in themselves and faith in the greatest country on the Earth, they could achieve.  The first dream was realized in a modest brick house on Albert Street in Atlanta, Georgia. After years of saving from his many jobs, Herman’s father surprised the whole family, even his wife, by purchasing a home for their family. The second dream was realized when Herman graduated from Morehouse College with a degree in mathematics in 1967. His brother, Thurman, would go on to graduate from Morris Brown College.  Inspired by the work ethic and character of his parents, Herman continued his education by earning his Master’s degree in computer science from Purdue University while working full-time developing fire control systems for ships and fighter planes for the Department of the Navy. Though Herman enjoyed using his talents as a civilian employee for the Navy, he gravitated towards the culture of business.  BUSINESS MAN, ADVOCATE, PATRIOT  HERMAN'S CORPORATE SUCCESSES  Herman returned to his home of Atlanta to begin working as a computer systems analyst for the Coca-Cola Company. After considerable success at Coca-Cola, he moved to the Pillsbury Company. Within a short period of time, Herman rose to position of Vice President. Although the comforts of a corner office on the 31st floor of a majestic corporate building seemed satisfying, Herman knew that he needed a challenge.  He became the regional vice president of Pillsbury’s Burger King division. This meant starting from the “ground up,” dodging grease fires and broiling hamburgers. Herman was assigned to lead a low performing region of 450 of their restaurants. Within three years, it became the best performing region in the company.  Energized by overcoming the many obstacles of his job at Burger King, Herman took on the biggest challenge of his career. He accepted the call to become the President and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a company that was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. In just 14 months, Herman returned Godfather’s to profitability and he led his management team to a buyout of the company.  His professional successes garnered the respect and admiration of industry peers who named him the President of the National Restaurant Association. Under Herman’s administration, the group grew significantly and began to lobby for the interests of America’s restaurateurs and small business owners.  In 1994, as head of the National Restaurant Association, he had the opportunity to speak with President Clinton during a nationally televised town hall meeting. Here, Herman challenged the President regarding the impact on businesses if his health care overhaul proposal were passed. President Clinton attempted to assure him and the millions of viewers watching at home that his legislation would not harm American business owners and their employees.  Herman was skeptical. “Quite honestly Mr. President, your calculations are incorrect,” he said. “In the competitive marketplace, it simply doesn’t work that way.” His words echoed across America, and Newsweek named Herman Cain the primary saboteur of Hillarycare.  Through these and other appearances on behalf of the National Restaurant Association, Herman began working with business leaders across all sectors of the American economy. This led to his acceptance of a position on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, and he was subsequently elected their chairman. In this role, he analyzed economic conditions in the region and notified the Federal Reserve of how their policies should respond.  After coming in an impressive 2nd in his 2004 bid for the United States Senate in Georgia, Herman soon became the host of his own radio talk show, “The Herman Cain Show,” on Atlanta’s WSB 95.5 FM/AM 750.  Today, as a former Republican candidate for the Presidency, and as the CEO of the newly formed Cain’s Solutions Revolution, he is still a very active and outspoken voice for conservative issues. He serves as a regular contributor on several broadcast networks and as a keynote speaker at conferences and events around the nation. Earlier this year, Mr. Cain began the next phase of his life’s journey, taking over for nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Neal Boortz, upon his retirement.  Herman has established the all-new “Cain Media Division” of THE New Voice, Inc. which is sure to provide yet another set of twists and turns to an already colorful career.  Despite the many professional commitments of his life, Herman continues to enjoy most the time spent with family and friends. As his children got married and had their own children, he knew that he had an extraordinary obligation to do what he could to make this a safe and prosperous nation for them. The paramount joys in his life are his wife, Gloria, his children and his four grandchildren, the youngest of which was born on New Year’s Day 2012.   Newly launched: HermanCain.com

  • Police said a burglar broke into a local nail salon and got away with cash.Channel 2's Audrey Washington was in Gainesville where police said the man scoped out the shop for one specific reason.Police said the burglar targeted the salon because he knows the nail techs get tipped with cash. They said it's the same reason they want him off the streets before he hits another nail shop.Surveillance video obtained by Washington showed the man walk into the back door of the nail studio and spa inside the Lakeshore Mall before 8 a.m.'Somebody come in through the back door like you see in the video,' the business owner told Washington, 'He just randomly picked it and (was) lucky to get in.'

'Not fair for us or anybody or business owners,' the salon owner told Washington.Sgt. Kevin Holbrook, with the Gainesville Police Department, told Washington, 'He did not hit any other businesses in the mall.

Meanwhile police are warning other nail salon owners in the area. 'If you do cash business, if you have employees that receive cash tips, do not keep large amounts of cash in your store,' Holbrook said.The salon owner said he added extra security to his back door and as for the suspect, police believe he lives in the area. Anyone with information is asked to give Gainesville police a call.
  • The Latest on the ongoing investigations into Russia meddling in the 2016 election (all times local): 8:30 a.m. White House aide Kellyanne Conway says it's only fair to expose any potential conflicts of interest of investigators helping Robert Mueller examine Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump campaign. Conway tells Fox News' 'Fox & Friends' that members of Mueller's team have contributed to Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in the past. She says: 'It's relevant that people know what the motivations are. That is not an attack on the team. That is what's fair is fair.'

  • America is gearing up for a spectacular celestial event, a total solar eclipse, on Aug. 21, 2017. A total solar eclipse occurs somewhere in the world about every 18 months, but for the moon and the sun to align perfectly to create a total solar eclipse in the United States is rare. The last total solar eclipse that was visible in the contiguous United States was back on Feb. 26, 1979.  QUIZ: How much do you know about solar eclipses? Jason Heaton, The Director of Astronomy at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery in Dayton, says this eclipse is being termed the Great American Eclipse. 'It's visible in America, all the way from the west coast to the east coast,' said Heaton. In the Miami Valley. Ohio area, the eclipse will begin shortly after one o'clock in the afternoon on Aug. 21. It will take the moon almost three hours to cross the face of the sun, from one side to the other.  WATCH: When will the solar eclipse be visible in your community? During the eclipse it will get darker, cooler and shadows on the ground will look strange and animals may act very strangely too.  Many cities across America will see a total eclipse, but our area will only have a partial eclipse. Almost 90 percent of the sun will be eclipsed by the moon. The last total solar eclipse that passed over the Miami Valley was more than a thousand years ago.  THINGS TO KNOW: 7 things about the rare total solar eclipse in August Unlike a lunar eclipse, the solar eclipse cannot be watched with the naked eye. It must be viewed safely with special filters or eclipse glasses. Even a sliver of the sun, is too bright for our eyes. Looking at the sun for long periods of time can damage your eyes. Even during an eclipse when only part of the sun is visible, it can be harmful to watch. In fact, Optometrist Dr. James Bierly says it may be even more dangerous to look at the sun during an eclipse.  'A lot of time during solar eclipses because of what we call the light spectrum going away, the pupil will dilate on its own, and then you are getting more UV radiation or UV light that is coming in and could cause damage,' Dr. Bierly said. RELATED: Where are the best places in the country to see the Great American Eclipse? Eclipse 2017 facts: A solar eclipse is when the moon moves in front of the sun. The solar eclipse happens on Monday, Aug. 21. It will start in the northwest United States, and end in the southeast United States. This hasn't happened to this scale since 1918. Solar eclipses happen fairly often, but they are not total, meaning some parts of the sun are still visible. Partial eclipse starts near Seattle, Wash. at 12:08 p.m.

  • The city of Atlanta's economic development authority will have to wait and see if it will be granted premium seating at the new Falcons stadium. Invest Atlanta asked the city's ethics board to overturn a previous ruling and allow the authority free, premium seating at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.The seats would be used to attract business, but the group argues it has essentially paid for the seats through bond financing.Channel 2's Nicole Carr learned about the request this week, ahead of Thursday night's ethics board meeting.The board heard Invest Atlanta's formal request then, but a source told Carr that Invest Atlanta's recent letter outlined its 'intent to include premium seating in the contract for the new stadium for economic development purposes.' TRENDING STORIES: Woman shot outside Starbucks in Cobb County Police: Burglar thought he cut security wires, still caught on camera 10-year-old girl hit, killed while walking to store On Thursday afternoon, Invest Atlanta forwarded Carr its letter to the ethics board. The seven-page letter outlines the $200 million investment the city of Atlanta has made in the Atlanta Falcons and the stadium. The authority argues that's the payment for the seats.[READ: Invest Atlanta's letter to ethics board]Invest Atlanta is largely responsible for recruiting, retaining and attracting business, both internationally and nationally.'We all respectfully request you all rescind the 2013 advisory opinion and issue a new one,' Rosalind Rubens Newell, with Invest Atlanta, asked the board Thursday. '(It will) showcase the city to the businesses we are trying to attract here.' But local watchdog groups say allowing Invest Atlanta such a request could lay the groundwork for bribery.'Greasing some folks with some tickets or gifts or things like that can happen in this situation,' said William Perry, with Georgia Ethics Watchdogs. 'They should be especially diligent when it comes to economic development.'Perry was a part of the watchdog group that argued against Invest Atlanta's request in 2013. At that time, the independent ethics board ruled the group ineligible for free tickets, citing Section 2-816 of the Atlanta City Code. The code states:(a) No contract or lease with the city may require passes, tickets or gratuities to be given to officials or employees or permit reduced fees to be paid by officials or employees. The contracting party shall not provide gratuities or prerequisites to any official or employee in connection with execution of or performance under the contract or lease.The code was a result of what was happening prior to 1997, during then-Mayor Bill Campbell's tenure. The ruling states that, at that time, 'members of the Atlanta City Council received free tickets to sports and entertainment events, often as a part of a city contract.'The ruling is correct,' Perry said. 'This is something of value. They shouldn't get it.'On Thursday, Invest Atlanta initially declined to comment on the request ahead of the ethics board meeting. The request letter detailing its stance was sent shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday.'These are gifts and they're being used to bribe either public officials or the ones that they're courting,' Perry said, 'and with those little gifts could come bigger problems later.
