Betty Waldhauer suffered a stroke on October 22 and was in Abbott-Northwestern Hospital for a few days. Our annual BUUF Holiday Pot Luck dinner will be held Sunday, December 8 at noon at the home of Carolyn Grieve, 514 Buffalo Run Road.
At noon, I gave up my Santa business and am referring my clientele to Santa John Marshall of Monticello.
I casually stopped at General Rental in Monticello two weeks ago, where I had purchased my first Santa outfit. The Celebration of Life will be held at the Peterson-Grimsmo Chapel in Monticello today from 5 to 8 p.m. After the service, he told me that he and friends often rode motorcycles to Lame Deer Reservation. After a couple of false starts because of bad weather, 14 hardy folk made it to help on Sunday, October 27. I want to thank: Richard Dean, Dick and Carolyn Grieve, the Muellerleile family, Dave Boyer, Rosalie Darden, Luke and Louise Markve, Erin Walsh, Duncan and Sally Fowler.
So everyone knows, every time I have contacted the Buffalo MNDOT maintenance station, they are profusely grateful for our efforts. Dorothy began her long life in Minneapolis as Dorothy Falk, delightedly discovered the First Unitarian Society at age 11 with her parents, earned her teaching certificate, taught girls Physical Education at Central High School (Minneapolis), enjoyed decades of marriage with Bill Hawker (who taught boys Physical Education), moved with him to their retirement home on the shore of Lake Pulaski, was an active member of the BUUF for many years, moved to Park Terrace when needed, and after a recent stroke died at Park View Care Center on October 6 at the age of 103. Luke then introduced attorney John Markve (son of Luke and Louise) who gave us valuable information about wills, probate, estates, and charitable giving.
The women of the BUUF have been meeting the third Thursday of each month for lunch and conversation.
You can make your involvement in the BUUF more interesting and informative by serving on one of these committees.
This article, taken from the UUA Interconnections folks, was submitted by Bill Weir, the BUUFa€™s Denominational Affairs Committee chair.
People join Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations for personal reasons a€“ to find something that is missing in their lives, whether thata€™s a community of like-minded souls or spirituality.
In many congregations, this committee consists of one, or at most two, long-time members who labor diligently to interest others in the work of the MidAmerica District and the denomination.
At the UU church of Berkeley in Kensington, CA (572 members), Kathy Owens says support from the ministers helps boost denominational affairs. Janis Elliot, moderator at First Unitarian in Portland, OR (1013 members), favors infusing denominational awareness into other committees, rather than creating a separate committee.
The committee puts articles in the newsletter, uses the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) website to keep track of programs and services, shows the video from General Assembly, encourages new people to attend GA (with a budget line item that helps pay expenses), and brings denominational leaders to speak at church to help members feel connected. Having a thriving denominational affairs committee a€?has increased the congregationa€™s sense of being connected to a larger movement,a€? says Rev.
We welcome everyone to our group, whatever your race, ethnic origin, religious perspective, sexual orientation, political philosophy, or economic condition.
Terry Martin, who is one of the authors of The Guide to Gouldian Finches, provides us with a better understanding of the coloring and genetics of the Gouldian Finch. 13Luke Markve will lead the meeting on the topic, a€?Knife Sharpening and Healthy Eating.a€? Bring dull knives!
This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” substantiates the viability of the sweat equity investment made through labor and cultural contributions by Cotton Pickers and other Plantation Workers. The following evening, Friday November 13, the “Cotton Pickers Ball” shall be held at 7:00pm, in da’ House of Khafre, located at 300 Main Street, Indianola. He was delighted that I had offered to pray for him, so with his permission,A I reached over and laid my hands on him. All are encouraged to attend both events in costume attire worn in the cotton fields, such as “overalls and straw hats, etc.”The 1st Annual Historical Narrative Competition enhances this year’s Symposium. In fact, if someone claims to be a child of God but continues in a life of sin, it is more thanA likely that he was never genuinely born again in the first place. Mississippi Delta high school seniors and MVSU students will compete for a trophy and gift card provided by Khafre, Inc and Lost Pizza, Company. I have joined together with several other very wealthy businessmen, and as a team, weA travel the world over to find worthy organizations and evangelical works that need money to advanceA the Kingdom of God. Terry was kind enough to schedule time from his veterinary practice to respond to my genetic questions.A Dr. You see, the Bible makes it clear thatA it is simplyA impossible for a bona fide child of God to continue in a life of sin! All projects must be delivered to the MVSU Social Sciences office “T” by 5:00pm November 5th, (or call organizers to arrange for pick up).
But I know enough about chemistry to know that a chemical by itself may be poisonous but not poisonous when in a compound with other chemicals. But when agathos becomes the word agathusune, it means goodness in the sense ofA beingA good to someone. This word was used to portrayA a person who is generous, big-hearted, liberal, and charitableA with his finances. For instance, if you change the gene affected lutien transformation into astaxantine, you get a yellow head.
It could be that this individual has come close to the Kingdom of God and has even tasted the powers of it.
But the fact that he has continued uninterrupted in the practice of sin shows that he has never become a real child of God.
Professor, Public Policy, MVSU; Dr Alpha Diarra, National Cotton Spokesman of Mali, West Africa. In addition to the offerings that were received for His ministry, Luke 8:3A tells us that a group of very wealthy women also financially supported His ministry. Just as the sperm of a human father carries the DNA of that father, Goda€™s seed a€”A the Word of God a€” carries the life and nature of God within it.
Thus, He set an example for us to be concerned for and involved in the meeting of basic human needs as we are able to do so.A This tells me that acting in a€?goodnessa€? is a character feature of the nature of God.
Luke mentioned this aspect of Jesusa€™ nature in Acts 10:38 right along with His supernatural healing power, sounding the signal that God is just as interested in helping the poor and needy with financial assistance as He is in supernaturally healing their bodies. This means the day you got saved, that divine seed came rushing into your spirit, carrying theA life and nature of God within it to give you a new nature.
The truth is, helping to meet the physical needs of other people is an act of a€?goodnessa€? that Jesus did and still longs to do through His people.A So when the Bible tells us that one of the fruits of the Spirit is a€?goodness,a€? God is letting us know that He wants us to be selfless, using our resources to help change peoplea€™s living conditions for the better. The wild gene for the ino locus has a role in helping produce melanin pigments in the body.
Local storyteller Helen Sims will pay tribute to “the Spirit of Mama Lula.” Hollandale folk artist Dorothy Hoskins will showcase recent multi-media work on Cotton Pickin’ and Sharecropping in the American South.
This is absolutely contrary to the flesh, which would consume every spare dollar on itself.
The exact site of action has not been determined, but when dysfunctional it can result in the Lutino colour morph, an individual that is unable to produce either type of melanin in significant quantities.A The Lutino therefore has a disfunctioning gene for the ino locus.
However, in this verse it conveys the idea ofA a person who is faithful, reliable, loyal, and steadfast. But as each gene has very long DNA sequences, it is possible for it to be altered in different ways. The day that Goda€™s divine seed was planted inA you, that seed transported the very nature of God Himself into your spirit, with the full expectationA that His very life and nature would be reproduced on the inside of you. It picturesA a person who is devoted, trustworthy, dependable, dedicated, constant, and unwavering. Some of those ways will produce the same result in the end (when the DNA is transcribed into a protein based gene product) but sometimes the function is altered in different ways.A Some loci that produce colours morphs only ever mutate in one way - the Cinnamon locus behaves like that. This is also why you felt so badly about sin that previouslyA didna€™t bother you at all and why you became so driven to possess a holy life. This is also the wordA pistis, which tells us that it is mandatory for this fruit of the Spirit to be found in leaders.
But you should be aware that the story of Chicken Little is notA  a "fable character." While he did say "The sky is falling" quite a bit, this was only because he had difficulty making contact the his agent provocateur whose actual physical appearance had changed over the years. His born-again spirit will grieve and sorrow if sins are committed, because such actions violate the new nature that has been implanted in his spirit. The University is driven by its commitment to excellence in teaching, learning, service, and research--a commitment resulting in a learner-centered environment that prepares critical thinkers, exceptional communicators, and service-oriented, engaged, and productive citizens. The specific coloring of a Lutino is not a definite one and the term Lutino is simply an avicultural term which does not indicate a specific mutation.
If a person continues in sin as though nothing happened inside him, then nothing is probably exactly what did happen! MVSU is fundamentally committed to positively affecting the quality of life and creating extraordinary educational opportunities for the Mississippi Delta and beyond. KHAFRE, Inc. A Lutino, or an unlimited number of other red or black eyed albinistic Gouldian, is proven by the bird having been born from two Green Bodied Gouldians. Are you selfish and self-seeking, consuming every spare dollar on yourself and never showing concern for the needs of those around you? As to whether it should be called a Lutino depends on how the viewer sees the degree of clear yellow coloring on the back, the degree of white coloring on the breast and the degree of red in the red or black eyes. Therefore, if a Gouldian, which is named a Lutino, will be left to different opinions as to whether or not it should be called a Lutino.
If a person who claims to be born again continues uninterruptedA in habitual sin, we can take it as a strong indicator that he has probably never really beenA born again. If the answer is yes to either of these latter questions, doesna€™t this indicate that you arena€™t allowing the Holy Spirit to do His work in you? This person may have come close to the Kingdom of God; he may have even learned theA lingo of the saints.

Honoring the legacy of  “grandmamma-nem” in a university setting gives artistic and academic license to the pursuit of gaining more scholarship and international acceptance, of the contributions and sweat equity made by the people who picked cotton throughout the American South,” said Professor C.Sade Turnipseed, Executive Director of Khafre, Inc. As I explained before albinism is the scientific classification of a group of mutations, whereas albino and lutino are avicultural terms for specific colours."A Dr. The great preacher, Charles Finney, once remarked that most people who attend church are probablyA not born again. It doesn't matter what your heritage is or whether you are still in high school or old enough for Medicare. As part of Khafre, Inc’s historic preservation efforts, a permanent marker will be placed on the MVSU campus in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta, and those who worked the repurposed cotton plantation for higher learning, MVSU.The Symposium is free admission.
I am convicted by this, Lord, and Ia€™m asking You to helpA me shift my focus from myself to those who are around me.
When asked why he believed this, Finney remarked that it was impossible for true children of God to live in blatantA sin as many believers do. In addition toA believing for my own needs to be met, I also believe for the financial resources to help meetA the needs of others. Khafre, Inc is all about building monumental programs that allow reflection, reconnection, and renewal. It is my opinion that many of the definitions and classifications set out in aviculture and in the scientific community need redefining to be applicable to the pigmentation of avian species.
Because he has been a€?born of God,a€? he is so inwardly changed that it affects himA outwardly.
This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. By that I do not mean they need major changes, but they need expanding or contracting in different circumstances to ensure they are useful definitions for avian species. Petersburg Collede digital arts program is filled with both talented professors and students. The agency and resistance of these narratives will also reflect on the subtle and continuing impact of cotton on life in the Delta and throughout the South. Are you even aware of the needs of the poor and needy in your neighborhood, city, or world?A 2. The one-day event concludes with a good old fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball and Ancestral Celebration” at da’ House of Khafre located at 300 Main St. What can you do right now to start a€?doing gooda€? to people near you who have serious basic needs? Can you give them an offering, take them to the grocery store, or fill up their car with gas? Since phaeomelanin granules are already smaller than eumelanin granules they will be the first victims of the action of the SL ino gene and will be very hard to find even under an electron microscope. It could be possible that the wb locus is involved but it wouldn't surprise me if it is not the case. The presence of very small amounts of eumelanin in avian SL albinism is very well demonstrated in fowls, quails and Budgerigars.


They show ghost barring in their plumage especially those areas where there is eumelanin in the cortex.
If heA had truly been saved, he wouldna€™t have been able to continue living a consistent life of sin.
In your story on stadium horns, you called them vuvuzwelas, what is that funny looking symbol after the photo credits. However, dark feathering appears when the European Ino is bred to Green Gouldians, and another "fix" is needed by breeding it to the Pastel Green and Pastel Blue genes.
If you make a mistake about yourA spiritual condition, it is a mistake you will regret for all of eternity. A The history of Gouldian Inos, A from a world wide perspective, has beenA  posted on this web site with a list of references.
If these questions disturb you, take theA time to let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart and tell you the truth. Many people will have an eternalA destiny in hell because they couldna€™t bear the thought of publicly admitting they werena€™t saved.
It was stated that perhaps the Belgian Ino was an allele of SL Ino, similar to the *pearly* budgerigars. By 2009, the demand in Europe for European Inos had fallen and the price also dropped dramatically. Julianne Malveaux; and, introduction by award-winning poet Chinaka Hodge the volume offers a balanced view of what our children face day-to-day, on the streets of America. By 2010, some European Ino breeders had lost interest due to the fact that the Ino looked too much like a Pastel Green Gouldian.A Belgian and German breeders have had some success with breeding the European Ino. The image can be used freely, subject to some restrictive terms in the license, including crediting the photographer. Over two hundred years ago, the Akan Nation (West Africa) established the Adinkra Symbols to visually communicate a system of living for African people to observe and learn. International breeders of European Inos are hoping to get a "crossover" gene, which will allow for true Red and Yellow head coloring. Amazingly, just as with other inspired and spiritual writings, drawings, etc., the symbols are beautiful design concepts with meanings still relevant today.
Sometimes the Peales Parrot Finch, with a Red Head, is included in the albinistic mix in an attempt to produce Red Headed European Inos. They bring clarity and resolve to the question, “What do we (the village) have to do to show support and love for each other and ultimately save ourselves and one another?” The experiences of today’s youth culture demonstrate a fundamental disconnect, to most people of previous generations.
However, the hybrid breeding method has circulated among European and international breeders since 2003. His divine seed is reproducing Goda€™s life in me so that every day I am thinking more like God, acting more likeA God, and possessing less tolerance for any sin that might still be active in my life.
The young writers selected for this publication masterfully describe the challenge in dealing with today’s world. It looks to me like he called on Curtis LeMay, Colonel Clearwater - and then realizing he had made a mistake - schluffed it into Colonel Kilgore. Some international breeders have been concerned as to the affect that the European Ino will have on the Gouldian gene pool. Have you ever known someone who claimed to be born again, but you never witnessed any changes in his lifestyle, behavior, attitudes, or actions? Because, it offers tribute to the “original” mother and her instinctual knowing of the spiritual paths that her children (all children) must take to find their way out of harm's way. If you know someone who claims to be a child of God but whose life continues uninterrupted in a lifestyle of sin, what does this persona€™s unchanged life indicate to you now?A 3. Revealed, in this collection of writings are a wonderful array of short stories, poems and proverbs that present a familial insight born by the great liberator of liberators, Harriet Tubman! The albinisticA mix causes weakness, whichA results in the loss of juveniles and adult birds.
Why dona€™t you write down some of the biggest changes that have taken place since you were born again?

Unfortunately, for most of his contemporaries (colleagues, family of friends) they never received the accolades, appreciation, or respect for their life-long work as cotton-pickers in the American South.
David Matthews, MS Congressman Bennie Thompson, MS Senator Thad Cochran, National Parks Director Dr Jon Jarvis, Mr.
Theodore Turnipseed, Sr., and millions of others understand the importance of sharing, and erecting a statue and National Park dedicated to the countless field workers of the American South. Though unrecognized and unappreciated, these people worked from sun up to sun down tilling, planting, chopping, picking and spinning cotton, in the blazing hot sun … This and many other horrifying conditions of the historic Mississippi Delta evoked the music we call “the Blues.”On May 21, 2014, during the last year of his life Mr.
King accepted our call to become the “Honorary Chair” of Khafre, Inc, a Mississippi-based 501(3) not-for-profit organization. Maya Angelou as the Honorary Chair of the Cotton Pickers of America and the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project. The plan is to build a thirty-foot high monument on twenty acres of cotton land along Highway 61, just outside the historic Black town Mound Bayou, MS.
This is a historically rare opportunity to transform many lives in the Delta and engage conversations about race and social inequities in America. Sade Turnipseed is the Executive Director of Khafre, Inc and teaches American History at Mississippi Valley State University, in Itta Bena, the birthplace of Mr. This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilts Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values.
No one has ever “officially” said “thank you” to the people in the American South, who literally tilled the way to the economic greatness for many countries and regions around the world. Somewhere along the way the respect and honor for their hard-earned sweat-equity investment in the wealth of others was lost and buried in the bloodstained, tear-soaked soils of the American South. Something “monumental,” needs to happen…like a National Park named the “Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center” along the Blues Highway 61. Here's a photo of American school children using the original Bellamy salute:A I think the photo speaks for itself. Once the Monument is installed, the organizers’ plan is to turn it over to the federal government for the protection and honor that only this country can provide.
Colonel Clearwater Dear Colonel Clearwater: What do you think about the Egyptian revolution? It shall serve as a permanent reminder and ever-present sign of respect for those whose hope for a brighter day wore thin, while working from kin to kain’t (can’t see in the morning to can’t see at night).The world must be reminded of the work ethic held by the people in the South…in most instances it was an honorable legacy … the tragedy is they were never properly compensated, nor thanked. Fundamentalists, in any religion, are usually a reaction to what the followers perceive as injustice. It could be possible that the wb locus is involved but it wouldn't surprise me if it is not the case. King, (aka: The King of the Blues) will join the effort to build a National Monument in the Mississippi Delta. This doesn't mean Egyptian society and culture will necessarily change; it is still their culture and values.
But in the long run any thing they make of it will be for their benefit (and not the benefit of the United States).
King understands, as do all members of the Khafre, Inc family, that a healing will come through recognition and a true recounting of the history of cotton and its impact in the South.In September, 2009, Khafre, Inc, based in Indianola, Mississippi, embarked upon a journey designed to thank the sons and daughters of the South who helped, albeit it without accolades, fanfare, or even recognition, build the cotton empire that fueled the American economy for nearly two centuries. The impetus for the project: Cotton Pickers of America and Sharecroppers Interpretative Center (hereafter referred to as the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex) is the need to thank those who toiled in the Delta soil for generations without the pay, appreciation, or the dignity they deserved.
The Cotton Pickers Monument Complex would not only help heal wounds that have festered for decades, but would also help to empower the generations of family members who have been negatively impacted by this unfortunate era in American history. This is truly a historic endeavor that has the rare opportunity of actually transforming lives, communities, and the conversations about race in America and throughout the world.           These deeply held convictions of education and empowerment are keys to improving the quality of life for all within the Delta. They have helped to catapult Khafre into numerous projects, which are all connected to the vision and mission of this value-driven and movement-oriented organization that is designed to provide historical, health related, and cultural education and outreach to the communities of the Mississippi Delta.
Khafre has already helped young people successfully publish literature, prepare for careers in the television and radio broadcast industry, produce staged events and engage in healthy behaviors through diet and exercise, all with the assistance of grant dollars and strategic partnerships.The crowning work of Khafre remains the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex, a dream, which is coming closer to fruition, day by day, because of the unprecedented support of Mr. We have also received Congressional acknowledgment and endorsement from United States Congressmen, Bennie Thompson and Danny Davis, official endorsements from United States Senators, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, and expressed support from Dr John Jarvis, National Parks Director. Carroll Van West and Rebecca Conard from Middle Tennessee State University’s History Department, along with the ongoing partnership with Mississippi Valley State University, has proven a significant benefit to our overall project.
We are now ready to raise the $26 million dollars to make the Cotton Pickers Monument complex a reality. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming your partnership in the building of this long overdue and much needed monument.It is time!Most sincerely,C. Not by rampeling down the side of the building like Tom Cruise, but by sliding in with a tourist visa when it was not open to tourists.
The goal is to obtain as much first-hand information as possible relating to the development of America’s Cotton Kingdom (aka the Delta).In the aftermaths of completing the academic study for a Doctorate in Public History at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Professor C. Turnipseed’s theory that perceptions of sharecropping, tenant farming, etc, will be altered in ways that are beneficial to the legacy of the American South when the memory of elders are shared. Clearwater: Republicans are betting that your readers don't care - that after all you did to beat them in 2006 and 2008, you're going to sit this one out.
So they're whipping up their base by blocking help to unemployed workers, blocking summer jobs for teens, apologizing to the big companies that gave us the spill in the Gulf, and doing anything else they can do to stop progress. The monument site is envisioned to become a National Park; and thereby “the place” for memory and community sharing in the Mississippi Delta, for educational, economic development, and international tourism purposes.
King and former honorary chair Dr Maya Angelou who are determined to improve the legacy and social-economic status of Mississippi Delta residents. Yes, that Rand Paul, who says freedom means a private business can discriminate against African-Americans, and that President Obama holding polluters accountable for the mess in the Gulf is "un-American." And he's not alone. The purpose of the organization is to provide educational, lifestyle and cultural programs, build monuments and memorials to honor, celebrate, and recognize the rich and complex history of the Mississippi Delta and to positively impact the quality of life of those living in the Delta, especially the disproportionately poor African American community. One candidate calls Social Security "horrible policy," while another has said that Americans will turn to "Second Amendment remedies" against Democrats.
There is no documented official acknowledgment of the people who tilled the path to America’s greatness. Somewhere along the way buried in the tear-soaked soils of the American South, the respect and honor for their hard-earned investment was lost. The Cotton Pickers of America Monument, Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and Cotton Kingdom Trail make the case for building a National Park that offers a small token of appreciation for their tireless uncompensated work.
In New Hampshire, Paul Hodes is running neck-and-neck with his Republican opponent to take this seat for the Democrats. Sade Turnipseed is the founder of Khafre, Inc., which has developed the Cotton Pickers of America Monument, the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and the Cotton Kingdom Historical Trail, among many other projects. We've just started to turn our country around, passing healthcare reform, working to hold the big banks accountable for the Wall Street meltdown, pushing legislation to address climate change and end our addiction to oil.
King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center in Indianola and the former cultural arts director for the Mississippi Action for Community Education--MACE (producers of the MS Delta Blues and Heritage Festival) in Greenville. The GOP is betting big that saying "no" and blocking progress is a path to success in November.What bet will you make? Turnipseed is the recipient of several community service and arts advocacy awards, and she was an independent candidate for mayor of the city of Indianola in 2013.
For the past eight years Turnipseed was the host of “Delta Renaissance,” a cultural arts talk show focusing on the arts, education, and political issues in the Mississippi Delta. I think the Republicans should adopt as their emblem the condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political stance. A condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others. Winter Building Wednesday, June 18: Former Secretary of State Dick Molpus talks about his experience during the Philadelphia civil rights murders of 1964. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, Last week, my friend and colleague, Congressman Anthony Weiner, did something very good, and very gutsy. Weiner's report showed that this firm, which sells gold coins, rips off its customers while benefiting directly from Beck's Chicken Little lunacy about the economy. Wednesday, July 2: Filmmaker Wilma Mosley-Clopton will show and discuss her new film, "Did Johnny Come Marching Home?" about people of African descent who fought to free themselves in the Civil War. Every time Beck screams that there is an impending Obama-led government takeover of the economy and your savings aren't safe, he's making a sales pitch for this sleazy advertiser.
You see, Beck's ratings have recently crashed, and most of his reputable advertisers have deserted him. Now that he's been exposed, Beck has spent the last week using his big media platform to attack and undermine Weiner - he even set up an attack website designed to damage Weiner's political standing. This collusion between big media, conservative commentators, and quack economics is a scam, but it is powerful if it remains unopposed. And we need to support people like Weiner, who have the guts to go after right-wing lunacy at the source.
Wednesday, September 25: Author Robert Blade will talk about his book, "Tupelo Man," a biography of George McLean. Consider his statement: "I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site.
I whole-heartedly agree with the editor that the African American community has proven to the world an uncanny, though unreciprocated, ability to be forgiving of past deeds of injustice, brutality and cruelty at the voting polls, and socially in their community service groups, churches and everyday lives.
This point should not be lost on the fact that many of those injustices happened here, in Indianola, Mississippi, to some amazingly strong and resilient individuals like Fannie Lou Hamer and all those who came before her.


That oil disaster must be stopped, and a way must be found."I am not the original author of that sensible thought, but it has been my favorite definition of faith for a while. But, I can’t help but wonder why the White community isn’t reciprocating and showing the same confidence and trust in racial relations?As Smith indicates, the incumbent received “between 32 and 37% of the votes in the three wards with large Black majorities, despite going up against two black opponents, with strong followings.
That’s impressive for a white candidate in a city and region with a history of racially divided politics.” I agree. While we have no way of certainty for moving past them, working to find a pathway that takes us beyond our doubts is the best option in my view.
When we examine the voter polls in the wards that are predominately African American, reflected is a general evenness for all candidates, be they Black or White. The same, however, cannot be said about the two wards that reflect the primarily White community.
I submit to you the following:In wards I, and II, which are the two wards with the largest white population of voters, we see results that reflect an uncompromising resistance to acceptance and change.
With an overall total of 952 votes cast: 732 went to the White candidate and 220 for the two Blacks, combined)…check that! Surely, it cannot be left up to one segment of the community, and not the other.I truly wish Smith had stressed this very critical point, instead of throwing shade on the outcome of a campaign I have yet to wage.
And for the record, as a citizen, it is my right to be afforded the opportunity to run a fair and unbiased race for mayor, without subtle suggestions that it is a waste of my time, as inferred in his editorial. But, then again maybe he knows more than I about how citizens of wards I and II will ultimately vote. And to also trust that the leaders of this community will look out for their best interest, politically, economically and socially.
After all we live in a community that is 84% African American with a poverty rate that is fast approaching 40% and a public school system that is in deplorable condition, both physically and academically, even under the watchful eye of the government, yet there is no outrage…from either the White side, or the Black side of town. And, I have never believed it was necessary to wait until political season to demonstrate my commitment to the people in my community. If, by chance I am truly embraced by all members of all wards of this city, I believe people will witness an amazing transformation in a relatively short period of time. It’s “almost” like magic…I predict things will begin to unfold in a substantive way like the neighborhoods will brighten, crime decreases and the impoverished mindset disappears.
And I am passionate enough to find the tools to help remedy the concerns that create stagnation and distrust.
Please remember, we are a people who come from a very long tradition of women who made a way out of no way.My overall ambition and hope for this city is to develop a strategic plan that enables a steady stream of culturally enriched projects that insures economic development for the future growth and safety in this city. So programs that not only engage everyone, but present real opportunities for career enhancements and social activities are critical. Then how come Congress starts each session with a prayer and the president is sworn in on a Bible? King Museum that I visualized and administered) Thanks Carver Randle, Sr for that wonderful quote. Wants to KnowDear Wants to Know, As I said in an earlier reply, our countrys laws and structure are not based on the God of the Bible and the Ten Commandments, as Sarah Palin and others claim. I just wish he read my bio, or googled me, before publishing doubts about my abilities for success. For the past three years, I have been sitting relatively quietly completing the doctorate in history. Now, I am ready to shake up this town with some bold ideas and ever increasing standards for excellence. So most of us do not work on Sunday and some businesses are not open for business on Sunday. I look forward to being a significant force in this community, by helping the White community too recognize the benefits of building relationships that they can trust in leadership positions.
We MUST work together to improve our community—by encouraging EVERYONE to clean on our streets, bayou, parks, etc. We have some huge unmet challenges here in Indianola, and how YOU decide to vote On December 10, 2013, is vital to our success. So we have a religious custom of not working on Sunday and a secular custom of watching football on Sunday. The Constitution states that the president must take an oath, but it does not mention anything about a Bible.
Also, please be sure to come to this year's event in your overalls, or cotton pickin' clothes. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I understand you answer, but you say customs and traditions.
The event is the impetus that gave rise to the “Remigration Home from Chicago to Mississippi” cultural movement organized by music promoters Gus Redmond and Robert Terrell.
Wants to Know MoreDear Wants to Know More, It is important to realize the difference between a custom and a tradition.
Legendary blues and gospel performers Otis Clay, Syl Johnson and Marshal Thompson (founder and lead singer of the ChiLites); along with promoter Gus Redmond will lead the way back home to Mississippi in an effort to support the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project in the historical Cotton Kingdom AKA the Mississippi Delta.
It is a custom at my house that every year we watch football on Thanksgiving Day after we eat. A tradition is a ceremony invented for the purpose of commemorating some historical event or to develop a sense of binding in a community or religious group.
Thanksgiving Day is a tradition in America that serves the purpose of reminding us of what we have from God for which to be thankful and is loosely based on the first harvest feast of the Pilgrims to celebrate their first year of survival in the New World. Though the Ball is a “Black Tie Affair” Overalls or other “cotton pickin” attire are encouraged and expected.“I am so pleased that we have partnered with Khafre to host an event of this magnitude,” said Dr. It is a tradition; a ceremony we use to create a common bond among Americans by commemorating our heritage. The discussions and historical presentations will reflect cutting-edge research, innovative practices and foundational values. When Congress meets, the first thing that happens is that the designated speaker calls the group together. Additionally, two noted scholars from Mali’s Cotton Manufacturing and Distribution will present via Skype.MVSU participants in the program include Dr. John Jones, interim provost.As part of the celebration, Khafre plans to erect a permanent marker on the site in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta and in commemoration of the significance of this historical event.
Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I have just seen a video about an organization called the Council on Foreign Relations. This organization has members who were past Presidents and past Secretary of States of the United States, plus leaders in the fields of finance, industry, and other important positions in society. This will be a day of stimulating discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. The spokesman on the video has concluded that this organization must be a part of world conspiracy to take over the world and put the entire world under a one-world socialist government and I agree with him. The two-day event concludes with a good-old-fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball,” on October 18, 2013. This year Khafre, Inc in conjunction with Mississippi Valley State University shall organize the USA’s premier interdisciplinary professional meeting on cotton, sharecropping, and its cultural significance. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an organization of foreign policy experts, people concerned with international trade, prominent historians and writers, as well as others who are involved with foreign policy and international affairs.
The deadline is September 6, 2013.Plan to join us in Itta Bena, Mississippi!This is your chance to catch up with old friends and colleagues at The Valley, make important new contacts, discuss the latest in cultural management, stay current with research findings in the historic preservation field, and connect with people who share your core values.
The CFR hold speaking events with question-and-answer periods which are usually televised on CSpan or other cable stations. The speakers are usually world leaders, historians, writers, or others involved in international affairs. Some of the speakers have included such figures as Nelson Mandela, George Soros, Thomas Friedman, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Ronald Reagan. We invite all community-based experts in any field to become a part of the challenge to address issues of: unemployment, entrepreneurship, illiteracy, poor self-esteem, teen pregnancy, obesity, hopelessness, communication skills, journalism and creative writing, etc. The journal, which I have subscribed to and read for over 25 years (plus you can buy it at the newsstands in Borders or Barnes and Noble) provides a forum for contrasting views and opinions regarding issues affecting foreign policy. Some people have made a nice living scarring others with conspiracy theories about the CFR. My advice to you is to go to the store, buy and read their journal, watch their events on CSpan, and be wary of people who wish to sell you on the idea that other people are out to get you.
Situated on the bayou waterfront at 103 and 105 Main Street, in historic downtown Indianola, da' House is the place where folks come together in the spirit of unity and love for Mississippi Delta culture, particularly its blues, spirituals and teacakes! Colonel Clearwater________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Dear Colonel Clearwater: Cancel my subscription to your liberal rage. And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. On the historical Wall of Fame are signatures by musicians from Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria, Norway, Belguim, China, Japan, France, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire and Mississippi, of course. We must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of this earth." Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1984 Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater: Liberals? Beginning Friday, June 1, 2012, at 7 pm, the folks at da' House will be carrying on in grand teacake style, until Sunday June 3rd, around midnight. Celebrating da love that is shared all around the world for da Delta music, art and culture. The 2nd Anniversary Celebration is dedicated to Deltas own David Honeyboy Edward, David Lee Durham, David Thompson and Mississippi Slim. These legendary bluesmen have recently joined the ancestors and will be honored by several local artists and civic leaders: Mickey Rogers, Dr. I realize that there is collateral damage in war, but this is no less than cold-blooded genocide. These artists and many others will perform on da historical Front Porch stage where the legendary bluesman Sam Chatmons music room door is gracefully hinged.
The door, the traditional quilts, the African art, the sweet smell of Soul Food and the Delta cotton provide a rural sophistication and ambiance that is reminicient of the culture and folk art once owned and coveted by grandmamma-nem. Indeed, it is "The home for artful giving, music and songs," as Chicago-based Blues promoter Lynn Orman Weiss described da' House on her most recent visit to the Delta.
And, since da' House is located at the epicenter of the Cotton Kingdom, visitors can expect that authentic soothing, and often times healing, Mississippi Delta experience to be dosed up in abundantly royal fashion, every time they come to da' House! Co-owners Robert Terrell and C.Sade Turnipseed extend a personal and heartfelt invitation for everyone to come on out to da House and help celebrate two-years of Delta art, music and culture. She is also the first African-American female president to lead a Mississippi public university. Since assuming her position on January 1, 2009, she has launched The Valley Renaissance, the institutions five-year strategic plan, which is pictorially depicted by the African Adinkra symbol of a Sankofa a bird that flies with his head facingbackwards as he advances forward without getting off track. Grammy-winning blues musician David "Honeyboy" Edwards, believed to be the oldest surviving Delta bluesman and whose roots stretched back to blues legend Robert Johnson, died early Monday, Aug. Maya Angelou agreed to graciously lend her name to the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project that is in development, in the Mississippi Delta. C.Sade Turnipseed, Founder of the Monument project and Executive Director of Khafre, Inc, recently made the announcement in a community meeting held at da House of Khafre, in Indianola.
They were shooting at insurgents who, upon later investigation, turned out to be civilians. By saying the soldiers were shooting civilans implies that they knew they were shooting civiliansj. Our teams collective effort honors the sacrifices made by millions of Americans and purposefully gives dignity back to the legacy of those who spent their entire lives working, tirelessly to build this country.Dr. The real guilty party are those who convinced the American public that this war was necessary and just. Smith Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University, joins a long and growing list of American citizens, who have also expressed the desire to support this project and demonstrate their respect and gratitude to every man, woman and child that picked cotton and were never thanked, nor properly compensated as enslaved workers or as sharecroppers, throughout the American south.The Khafre, Inc team is composed of a governing Board of Directors, a Steering Committee, a Board of Advisors and several political and community leaders that include faculty members from the History Department at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). The governing Board selected world-renowned monument designer, Ed Dwight, to develop the thirty-foot statue and sculptural park.
It offers educational workshops, seminars and conferences for the entire community that celebrate Mississippis culture and its contributions to world history, including music, cuisine, writing, andotherartistic expressions. Can you tell me how the "Smallest of the World's Leading Newspapers" managed to scoop "Florida's Best Newspaper?" Pedro TechadorDear Pedro, Always nice to hear from one of the Techadors.This was a WikiLeak scoop. Turnipseed is also the host of Delta Renaissance, the number one cultural arts television talk show in the Delta, which airs weekly on WABG-TV, WABG-Radio and Delta Fox-10 television networks.Plans are also underway to incorporate the completed work into the National Parks Services, to insure prosperity and proper maintenance of the Monument.

These are on-going cultural appreciation classes presented for the first time in the Delta, by Khafre, Inc (a Mississippi-based non-profit organization).Sato, who was born and raised in Japan, will introduce to American audiences his interpretation of Mississippi Delta Blues and perform on one of his traditional instruments called a Samisen.
Palin:Your statement reminds me of what Republican Congressman, Devin Nunes said during the health care vote. And now you are bringing the ghosts back into this chamber." There is no polite way to get around this. Tea Party Patriots are morons when it comes to history, economics, and how to run a society. Much like the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan after World War I, the Tea Party Patriots are people who believe they have lost their privileged status in American society and wish to thwart others hopes for the American dream. Unfortunately, or fortunately (depending on which editor yells loudest) President Obama considers Wall Street, the banks, the Republicans in congress, and those with tea party policies as necessary players in the solution when they are, in fact, part of the problem.
Both the Senior Citizens' Right to Work Act and the Family Medical Leave Act were passed this way.
