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...

Remembering the Rosenwald schools
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...

8/11/2021 4:23:37 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “I worry in regards to child obesity…diabetes, cholesterol, and all of those things, but personally I worry more about the children than myself.” “My kids—they’re the ones that I worry about eating right or making sure everything is good.” Most parents know the worry of trying to make sure their children are eating well and getting the right balance of the healthy foods they need to grow and thrive. Those universal worries become even harder for families who are...

Temptation is oh so tempting
8/11/2021 4:14:08 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   At the beginning of the week, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage informed me that she and some of her friends would be going thrift store shopping on Thursday. “Now,” she said, “you will have to take care of your lunch. You think you can do that?” I was smiling so hard on the inside I could hardly keep it from my face. Thursday morning, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said, “Do you remember what’s going to happen today?” Did I remember? How in the world could I ever forget? I...

What election? California Democrats worry over recall apathy
8/5/2021 5:50:16 PM

By Kathleen Ronayne and Michael R. Blood   SACRAMENTO (AP)—California Gov. Gavin Newsom has a simple way to beat back the recall election that could force him out of his job: Get Democrats to vote. But it may not be as easy as it sounds. Democratic registration almost doubles that of Republicans in the state, but party leaders are alarmed because Republicans appear more eager to vote, which is backed up by polling. Some Democrats might not be paying attention because they are convinced Newsom is headed toward an easy victory. The kind of voter Newsom needs to...

After court victories, Michael Jackson estate eyes revival
8/5/2021 5:44:53 PM

By Andrew Dalton   BEVERLY HILLS (AP)—Michael Jackson's musical legacy never left, but a kind of comeback is coming. With a series of court victories that bring the end to serious legal crises, with a Broadway show beginning and a Cirque du Soleil show returning after a long pandemic pause, the Jackson business is on the upswing 12 years after the pop superstar's death. Very recently, things looked grim. The 2019 HBO documentary “ Leaving Neverland “ raised child molestation allegations anew. The once-dead lawsuits brought by the two men...
