The California Legislative Black Caucus stands in strong support of Governor Newsom
8/18/2021 8:05:37 PM

SACRAMENTO—The California Legislative Black Caucus strongly opposes the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom and urges all Californians to say “NO” to this unwarranted, ill-advised, and costly recall election. During a global health and economic crisis, proponents of the recall choose to waste more than $200 million tax-payer dollars on this baseless campaign, blaming the Governor for their losses, when in fact, his efforts have been squarely focused on protecting the health of all Californians. The language used in the recall position is reminiscent of the hateful...

Winds are...

8/18/2021 7:52:50 PM

By Dave Collins   HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)—A new use-of-force training program that will be required for all police officers in Connecticut will emphasize “moral courage,” empathy and de-escalation in an effort to reduce fatal shootings and other violent acts by officers. Officials believe it is one of the first use-of-force training programs in the country to be mandated across an entire state. Most police departments provide their own such training to officers based on state laws, which can result in patchworks of different standards and...

First St. have been researching its history, digging into its influence on the Bloomington community and...

What's all these gadgets for?
8/18/2021 6:12:57 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Without any hesitation, I will gladly admit that I am on the short side when it comes to gadgets. For me, most of them do not make any sense at all. Instead, I like things simple and easy. As for the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, she is obsessed with gadgets. She loves them almost as much as I love Apple Fritters. I've gone into her "Craft Room" and noticed all the gadgets neatly placed where they belong. Unfortunately, I could not tell you the identification of any of them. I am gadgets-illiterate while she is...

8/18/2021 5:56:22 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   As students start a new school year, this is a chance to honor the legacy of a group of schools that educated hundreds of thousands of Black children. From 1913 to 1932, nearly 5,000 “Rosenwald schools” were built in 15 states, mostly in rural Southern communities. These schools were built specifically to educate Black children, and by 1928 one in three rural Black schoolchildren in the South attended a Rosenwald school. Their history, and the remaining school buildings themselves, are now being reclaimed...
