Jim Paratore was instrumental in getting this show on the air. He believed in Ellen when no one else did. Over the summer, Jim passed away from a heart attack, and Ellen wanted to dedicate Season 10 to him. Watch everything that happened on Ellen's premiere show, this Monday, September 10th!

I missed a week of your show, and now I don't know how to enter your contest. Here is why I have to give it a try. My husband and I have things planned out so that he can retire. He is 67 now and still working but we don't know for how long. He is 6' tall and down to 160... lbs. He is a school cop that went trough the Police Academy in Alexandria, LA and was told he was the oldest man to graduate. Then he took classes to become a school cop. He has one single goal and that is to make his school as safe as possible. So far he has made it but needs one more thing to get. He is trying to get a fence that is higher around the school. As it is now someone could reach over the fence and grab a kid and be gone. He has made many changes at school and a lot of older people are set in their way and say, "Well it never would happen here." Finally people started listening to him and it started with the school board president. He was at the school and my husband ask him if he could show him something. They went outside and Larry show him where there was not any kind of fence where the little kids played. Larry told him, " I have shown this to you so now it is on your shoulders." The next day they had one put in. Now if they could just get higher fences as he says "I have done my job. We are one of the safest schools in the state." Oh dang, forget the mattress and help please help with the fence.
