SHACS Info: The Origin of Black History The precursor to Black History Month was created in 1926 in the United States, when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of *** Life and History announced the second week of February to be *** History Week." This week was chosen because it coincided with the birthday of Abraham Lincoln on February 12 and of Frederick Douglass on February 14, both of which dates Black communities had celebrated together since the late 19th century. From the event's initial phase, primary emphasis was placed on encouraging the coordinated teaching of the history of American blacks in the nation's public schools. The first *** History Week was met with a lukewarm response, gaining the cooperation of the Departments of Education of the states of North Carolina, Delaware, and West Virginia as well as the city school administrations of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Despite this far from universal acceptance, the event was nevertheless regarded by Woodson a ...

A Marine who disappeared from a military camp in Iraq a decade ago and eventually turned 聽up with family in Lebanon was charged Friday with desertion and other charges, a U.S. Marines official said. Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun, an Arabic interpreter from Utah who disappeared in Fallouja in June 2004, was charged under a general court-martial with desertion, destruction of government property, larceny and wrongful appropriation, said Marine Corps spokesman Lt. Col. Cliff Gilmore. The 34-year-old has deserted twice, officials say -- the first time in Fallouja and again in 2005 when he was scheduled to appear in court on desertion charges. Hassoun turned himself in to authorities this summer and was transferred to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina to face court-martial. A week after Hassoun disappeared from Fallouja, he appeared in a hostage video. A group identifying itself as Islamic Response claimed to be holding him and threatened to behead him unless detainees in U.S. custody in Iraq were released. A month l ...

NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS UNDER ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER 1. HISTORIC ENFORCEMENT OF CIVIL RIGHTS LAWS A. VOTING RIGHTS: Since the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in the Shelby County case that struck down the preclearance system that barred certain states from enacting restrictive voting laws, Holder has sued Texas and North Carolina over those states’ voter laws under an innovative interpretation of what remains of the Voting Rights Act. The Department also filed briefs in lawsuits against similarly restrictive laws in both Ohio and Wisconsin. And Holder has worked with Congress on the bipartisan legislative proposal to restore the Voting Rights Act. B. CURBING RACIAL PROFILING: Under Holder, the Department is expanding its policy banning the use of race in federal law enforcement investigations. The new policy also prohibits the use of other characteristics such as ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation, and applies the restriction to national security investigations as well as standard criminal ...

The Fitzsimon File: Seven under-recognized bad decisions by the General Assembly By Chris Fitzsimon Most of the heated debate this fall about the decisions made by the folks in charge of the General Assembly for the last few years has focused on a handful of big issues, funding cuts to public schools, new restrictions on abortion services, lower benefits for unemployed workers, the refusal to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, the rush to allow fracking for natural gas in North Carolina, and tax cuts that primarily benefited the wealthy and large corporations. Those were all big and controversial decisions that understandably garnered the biggest headlines when they were made and continue to dominate most of the discussion about the new, hard right direction in Raleigh. But there were also host of other, less publicized decisions made by the General Assembly and Governor Pat McCrory that directly affect people’s daily lives that have almost been forgotten in the blur of campaign commercials ...

On this day (September 23) in 1926, John Coltrane was born in Hamlet, North Carolina. John William Coltrane, also known as "Trane" (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967), was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and was later at the forefront of free jazz. He organized at least fifty recording sessions as a leader during his career, and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, notably with trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. As his career progressed, Coltrane and his music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. His second wife was pianist Alice Coltrane and their son Ravi Coltrane is also a saxophonist. Coltrane influenced innumerable musicians, and remains one of the most significant saxophonists in music history. He received many posthumous awards and recognitions, including canonization by the African Orthodox Church as Saint John William Coltrane and a special Pu ...

BORN THIS DAY: September 23, 1926 in Hamlet, North Carolina USA, saxophonist and composer, John Coltrane! "Trane" was born at home, and his first music lessons came at home from his father who played several instruments. Sadly, when John Coltrane was only twelve years old, Coltrane's aunt, grandparents, and father all died within a few months of each other. And he was raised by his mother and a close cousin. In June of 1943, they moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he began to study music in school. Two years later, Coltrane was playing gigs in cocktail lounges around the city. A stint in the Navy at the end of World War II led to Trane's playing regularly as a bandleader on the Hawaiian Naval base, although he had not enlisted as a musician. In fact in July of 1946, Coltrane's first recordings were made at an informal session in Hawaii with Navy musicians. The next month, in August 1946, Coltrane was discharged from the Navy and returned to Philadelphia, where he "plunged into the heady exc ...

Got busy and didn't Gratitize yesterday. Sorry, Universe (read: Deborah Cowles Spera)... 1) I am grateful for CoolTown. I wasn't born or raised here, but I'm glad we found each other. Since I landed, I left--over and over--expecting to settle somewhere else. I'm settled, now. Twenty minutes or less from just about anything I could want. I really love this whole joint. 2) I'm grateful for Western North Carolina, my "second home". It's in my blood. When I get back--especially if Cousin Kay Ledbetter Willis lets me sleep in "Granny's" room--I feel my ancestors watching and welcoming. I sleep like a baby. 3) I'm grateful for the decade I spent, off and on, in L.A. We never quite hit it off, me & the town, but I loved every second I got to spend on back-lots and movie sets and TV studios. There's nothing cooler (In. The.

September 21-27 is Banned Book Week so here is a little factoid. The top three states in 2013 by numbers of books challenged to have them removed from teaching and bookstores are North Carolina, Oregon, and that bastion of Tea Party ignorance, Texas, which retains its number one standing by a wide margin. Reasons for wanting various books banned ranged from sexual situations, language, to dissenting religious and political views. Books ranged from modern fiction and non-fiction to classics such as the Herman Hesse book Siddhartha.

Legendary jazz saxophonist and composer John Coltrane was born on this date in 1926. The Hamlet, North Carolina, native began playing the clarinet in a community band at the age of 13 and switched to the alto saxophone during his final year of high school. In 1945, he was drafted into the U.S. Navy, eventually serving most of his two-year term with a Navy band stationed in Hawaii. In 1947, he switched to the tenor saxophone and toured with alto saxophonist Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson. He joined the trumpeter Miles Davis's group in 1955, beginning an important phase of his career. During the periods he spent with Davis, Coltrane gained an international reputation as a tenor saxophonist. His high notes had an intense, emotional quality, and his melodies were extremely ornate and usually played without vibrato. After leaving Davis’s quintet, Coltrane formed his own quartet and began playing both the soprano and the tenor saxophone. During the early 1960s, Coltrane and drummer Elvin Jones developed a highly .. ...

Apple Pay Tips To New Era Of Fully Digitized Money The new iPhone 6 all by itself is a pedestrian mobile phone. Nice looking, a big upgrade over the iPhone 5, but it has nothing that Android phone users have not seen or been enjoying for a few years. The new Apple AAPL -0.82% Pay system though is quite interesting and it is too early to make snap judgments on whether it is important or not. There was some pretty good commentary and insights around the web on this subject that I want to share with you. (Disclosure: I own Apple shares). The overall theme is that the way you pay for things is about to change again. The first major change in our parents’ lifetimes was the development of the credit card. The first major change in my lifetime was the development of the debit card and ATMs, which I first used as a student at Duke University in the late 1970s, as North Carolina banks were pioneers. The next big change was the development of online banking and online bill pay. And after that came non-bank onlin ...

Born in Caroleen, North Carolina in 1902, studio photographer Herbert Lee Waters supplemented his income from 1936 to 1942 by traveling across North Carolina and parts of Virginia, Tennessee, and South Carolina to film the people of small communities. He collaborated with local movie theaters to screen his films, which he called Movies of Local People. As a filmmaker, Waters produced 252 films across 118 communities. The H. Lee Waters Film Collection dates from 1936 to 2005 and primarily comprises 16 mm black and white reversal original motion picture films created by Waters during the filming of the Movies of Local People series. This is part 1 of a movie filmed in Cliffside, NC in 1937:

THIS ONE IS MENTAL FO REAL ! SMDH Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer head-butted his wife and broke her nose after she refused to have sex with him, and punched her in the face the next day, police revealed today. The details surfaced in a law enforcement report a day after Dwyer was arrested on aggravated assault charges and deactivated from all team activities. He spent a night in jail and made a brief court appearance before being released early Thursday. Dwyer, 25, was arrested Wednesday for investigation in two altercations that occurred on July 21 and 22 at his Phoenix residence, just days before the Cardinals reported to training camp. His wife, 27-year-old Kayla Tobin Dwyer, left the state after the incidents, but came forward a week ago after Dwyer apparently sent suicidal text messages including a photo of a knife. In the first encounter, police say Dwyer attempted to kiss and undress his wife, but she refused. Someone who heard the argument reported the assault to police, who showed ...

WWII FIGHTER ACE - GEORGE "RATSY" PREDDY 26.83 (25 + 4 SHARED) - TOP P-51 ACE Major George Preddy was a WWII ace with 26.83 kills ranking him as the top P-51 Mustang ace of World War II and sixth on the list of all-time highest scoring American aces. George Preddy was on his way to becoming the leading ace in Europe when tragedy struck. General John C. Meyer, who was the fourth ranking American ace in the ETO (European Theater of Operations) and Preddy's squadron commander for more than a year, wrote: "I have never met a man of... such intense desire to excel. George Preddy was the complete fighter pilot." Preddy grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina. Before the war, he was a barnstormer pilot. In 1940, he made 3 attempts to join the US Navy and was rejected each time because of physical problems. Dejected, he returned to barnstorming. During the summer of 1940, he tried to join the USAAF and passed all the tests. He was told that he would have to wait for an opening. Meanwhile, Preddy joined up with the ...

Today, with 44 days left till I retire from the Coast Guard, my 20 Years a Coastie is abput something that has been around since the 90's, but really grew its wings and took off based on a particular moment while I was stationed at Air Station Houston in 2001-2005. This is gonna hit on somthing that most of my fellow Aviators know all about, though few know the humble etymological origins from whence it started. Outside of the Coast Guard, I would say only a handful of you spouses are aware of this, and almost no civilians have been privy to it. Until now. I am referring to one of the un-official slogans of Aviation and one of the markings of the H-65 aircraft, as well as Hanger Decks around the Gulf Coast, nay, the entire Nation. I refer, of course, to "Nacho Sux". Now anyone who knows me knows that I have an affinity for humor. I love making fun of others, and enjoy when that gets turned back on me.

North Carolina here we come. Packed like the Beverly hillbilly's
I’ve spent last few days in western North Carolina (I assure you I’m not contemplating a presidential run – I’m way too short, too old, and too outspoken for that – but I’m interested in understanding better what’s happening in "red" America). Most of the self-described Republicans I’ve met here are commonsensical and decent. But most Republicans in the state legislature are rabid Tea Partiers who have gerrymandered districts to minimize Democratic (and often minority) influence, erected barriers to voting, refused to expand Medicaid to the working class even though the federal government will pay for 100 percent of it for the first three years (and 90 percent thereafter), cut education funding, and enacted radical anti-abortion legislation. Out-of-state funds are flowing in to support them, largely from Koch-related organizations. At one college here I came across an historian of Weimar Germany who said the parallels are striking. “When people are economically stressed, they’ll follo ...
So I have a super cool story. I am down in Raleigh, North Carolina, and last evening was getting a ride back to my hotel when I saw this guy on the sidewalk waiting to cross the street that seemed so familiar. I was wondering why he looked so familiar, and I said to the guy driving me to my hotel "I swear that guy was at Gary Con, because I remember how much I thought he looked like the spitting image of a local gaming buddy." The guy waiting to cross the street turns around, and his back proudly sports a shirt with the words Gary Con IV. And because I am terrible with names, I roll down the window and lean half way out the window to shout "Hey Gary Con!" Sir Gary Con shirt turns, spots me, totally recognizes me too, and we have as much of a conversation as can be had from a car window until the traffic light turned green. Sorry I can't remember your name, Mr. Matt Look-a-like. I am horrible at names. But I thought the whole instance was really awesome. Go Gary Con comrads!!

Friends, would you believe that I apparently upset a bunch of Liberals...As most of you know I found a photo of Senator Kay Hagan (D) of North Carolina having a bad hair & make up day and posted it on my face book. This photo was not doctored up in anyway it was her. I posted it with the caption do you really want to return this to the US Senate, being that she has voted for anything that Obama wanted 96% of the time and yes she was the swing vote in ObamaCare. For some unknown reason face book apparently took the photo off my face book page leaving the photo blank and the comments still there. Oh, I forgot that the National Democratic Party is pouring MILLIONS of DOLLARS into her campaign, thinking if she is not elected they will loose control of the US Senate, thereby taking all the power away from Obama. Therefore everyone in North Carolina needs to vote for Thom Tillis to fill this most important position come November 4, 2014. It looks as if Hagan & the Democratic Party are running scared, lets give ...

Pine Log Pine log was one of the largest and most complete plantations inColumbus County. The deed shows the purchase of 925 acres lying on the west side of Whiteville in 1854. The purchase was made by Matthew and Bythel Watkins from the State of North Carolina for 5 cents and acre. Names on the adjoining lades were of relatives or other early settlers. Pine Log branch was dammed and a complex set of flood-control dams built up as far as Smyrna to control the water. Two mills were constructed on the dam, one for corn and the other for wheat. A large General Merchandise store was built near the railroad. Mr Chester Watkins operated the store for many years. It carried a large line of groceries, hardward, and dry goods. Much of his business was in trading for farm produce. The present home was built in 1880, making it 134 years old, and is basically unchanged except for routine modernizations. The barns were built by Mr Chester on east west line and by Miss Hattie on North South line. The barns and sheds co ...

For all the locals...a note from Joel about the proposed Dominion Pipeline through Augusta County... This is acute for people in our locality, but has broad applications for similar tensions around the country. Dominion (sounds ominous, no?) is a large energy development company in Virginia (Old Dominion) proposing to install a 42 inch high pressure gas line from West Virginia fracking fields down to North Carolina and out to Yorktown (a major seaport). Initially, the proposed route went through Polyface Farm, but has now been changed to a couple miles north. The route is in flux as things develop. I've gone to a couple of public meetings, been interviewed by the media for my take on the proposal, and generally tried to gather as much information as I can on the project. It's a $4 billion multi-year deal. All around our area folks are planting "No Pipeline" signs. Polyface has not joined in the mob antagonism and here is why. To allay fears that we've joined the mega-power mongers, Dominion has acte ...

Hagan Ducks Top Senate Debate After “Defensive” First Debate, Hagan Stiff-Arms Top State Media Outlets Raleigh, NC – Just days after many media observers called Thom Tillis the winner of their first debate, Senator Kay Hagan has announced she’s ducking another major debate sponsored by three of the state’s biggest media outlets. Senator Hagan is now refusing to take part in the Time Warner Cable News-Charlotte Observer-Raleigh N&O forum set for October 21. Time Warner Cable News has called Hagan’s decision to not debate “surprising,” while Tillis has made clear he still plans to participate. Watch the report from Time Warner Cable News “It’s clear that Senator Hagan simply cannot defend her record of voting with President Obama 95 percent of the time and consistently putting his liberal agenda ahead of North Carolina,” said North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Claude Pope. “Instead of standing before the people of North Carolina and debating the issues, she’s choosing to hide ...

“In the Summer of 1781 an Army intended by the United States to stop [British General Jeffrey] Cornwallis' approach from the South moved up from North Carolina to end the British control of so much of eastern Virginia. But British regulars and the Loyalist partisans in several battles along the Dismal Swamp hurled the American Army out of Virginia. The high point of the Virginia campaign was the capture of Richmond, the new State capital far in the west, by the British regulars and the Black and poor white partisans. The State Governor, Thomas Jefferson, fled without defending his city, a flight that was considered ignominious by many, then and now. It appeared that Virginia was to fall to the combined British-Loyalist forces even as the deep South had.” “General Cornwallis was approaching from the south with his army, accompanied by hundreds of Black guerrillas. It is reported that by the time they reached the Dismal Swamp region the latter numbered two thousand, "Pillaging and plundering," success ...
