DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom OpinionBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceYesterday I attended my third Apopka Martin Luther King Jr. Parade as Managing Editor of The Apopka Voice.  Once again it was an exciting, entertaining and inspiring event. The weather was absolutely perfect, and the parade entrees were engaging.However what I enjoy most about this parade is the close proximity the entrees have to the audience, and how they, in some cases, literally live on the parade route and walk out of their homes on to their lawns to watch. The path goes down Marvin C. Zanders Avenue south past MA Board Street and Michael Gladden Boulevard, then turns right on 13th Street and finishes at the John Bridges Center.Instead of a “Main Street” venue, the parade winds through the community. There are houses on both sides of the street. Neighbors barbecue together, drink beer and socialize along the route. The street is narrow, and the spectators can interact with those in the parade.It’s like a massive block party right in the heart of South Apopka.Spending the afternoon in this community with its people, watching the parade, and celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. King almost always leaves me with warm feelings about the South Apopka community, and questions about MLK and his world-changing movement.And this year is no different.Last year in my MLK Parade column I asked a question: What would Dr. King think about South Apopka if he were alive today?And now, two days after the parade, I’m still struggling and wrestling with this notion:What would America think about Martin Luther King Jr. if he were alive today?We assume, of course, that he would be revered at any period in our history, but in today’s climate would that be true?Would his message and approach work today? Would MLK survive the current tone in Washington DC? Would he be pilloried by Facebook attacks? Would his words unite us as a nation in today’s climate, or further divide? Or would he be exactly what is needed?At the time of his death, King was a self-avowed democratic socialist who called for massive spending in the inner cities and was in the process of organizing a “poor people’s march” into Washington. He was vocally against the Vietnam War at a time when it was unpopular to do so, and he had detractors on both sides of the political aisle, as well as within his own movement.Would America, in its current political state, sincerely rally behind a democratic socialist, anti-war activist who called for the government to spend MORE money on large population centers like New York City, Chicago, and Detroit and who did not have solid support in Congress, the White House, or even in some cases among his own movement? Or would America in 2018 write him off as an opportunistic political ideologue?However radical King’s viewpoints were in the 60’s, his approach was always that of a “moderate militant”. He was in complete opposition to violent tactics and actually was in favor of negotiating when many of his supporters wanted faster progress.King argued that racism in America meant the United States was not living up to its own ideals. At the very core of the Declaration of Independence and thus at the center of American life was the belief that “all men are created equal.”King did not want to challenge, let alone replace, ideals of freedom and equality. He wanted America to better embody them. He argued that the civil rights movement was just the latest in a long American tradition that was both grounded in those ideals and sought to make them more authenticIf a civil rights leader scolded America by telling us to live up to our own ideals, what would our reaction be?King’s resistance was also strictly nonviolent. Following the model of civil resistance developed by Mahatma Gandhi, the leader of Indian independence, King argued for nonviolence within the terms of his own Christian faith. King said that by responding to injustice with civility and to violence with nonviolence, the resister was fulfilling “the Christian doctrine of love your neighbor as yourself and love your enemies.”  This was the love that Jesus epitomized, and which his followers were called to emulate.The Jim Crow system of racial segregation rested on the idea that African-Americans were inferior to whites. By rigidly adhering to the high road, the actions of protesters proved that that entire system was based on a falsehood. Indeed, if anything, actions on both sides demonstrated the opposite. King’s non-violent approach disproved the premise.The fundamental purpose of resistance was to effect political change and that meant operating within existing political institutions, and it also often required compromise.For example, at the 1964 Democratic National Convention, a crisis developed when the newly created and integrated “Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party” demanded they be recognized and seated instead of the all-white “official” Mississippi delegation. They argued they were the truly democratic representatives of the state as they were the product of procedures fair and open to all.Party leaders worked out a compromise that allowed the Mississippi delegation to remain. King accepted this compromise, but many advocates condemned it as an illegitimate accommodation to racism.King believed it was slow progress, and one year later, President Lyndon B. Johnson, rarely a supporter of Dr. King, signed the Voting Rights Act which ensured voting rights for all African-Americans and brought federal control over elections in the South.In reality, there is no way to know what America would think about Dr. King’s message and approach. The bigger question might be who could possibly take on that massive responsibility?Movements with the impact of Dr. King’s rarely find a clear-cut leader to take their place.No one took Jesus’ place. He had disciples and apostles who advanced his message, but in the end, there was never a leader like the original. The Christian movement fragmented into hundreds of people spreading its message of loving your neighbor, serving, blessing and feeding the poor until it reached thousands, and then hundreds of thousands and now millions.King is similar in that there was never a clear-cut leader that took his place. It is seen in hundreds of people who advance and remember his legacy. There have been civil rights leaders to emerge, but none to rival King. His message too is fragmented and shared with hundreds and then thousands and now millions, but specifically here in Apopka I watched them pass by me at the MLK Parade.Among King’s thousand points of light are Grand Marshals Bertha McGraw, Carroll Grimando, Griselda Payne. They are South Apopka Ministerial Alliance President Hezekiah Bradford. They are Pleasant View Baptist Church, the Apopka High School Marching Band, the Wekiva Girls Basketball team, the Apopka Progressive Club, St. Paul AME Church, the Apopka Farmworkers Association, Solomon Ladge #53, Davis Chapter #36 OES Love Circle #9, Citronella Court #93 Heroines of Jericho, Shafi Court #25 DOS, Roland A. Baker Lodge #2, Trailmasters, Delta Sigma Theta OAC DST, the Channel Wright Foundation, New Hope Youth Department, Phillis Wheatley PTA, the Beehive Lodge #779, Florida Hospital Apopka, Community Health Centers, Notre Dame Americorps, Hope Community Center, Temple of Faith Church, Temple of Faith Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and the Fountain of Life Church.I’m sure there were many others, but that’s who passed by me on the parade trail, and who made me smile and believe that Dr. King’s legacy lives on in these children, people, and organizations.A special thank you to Pastor Hezekiah Bradford and the South Apopka Ministerial Alliance for putting on this inspiring parade and for keeping Martin Luther King’s message close to our hearts every year. I know how hard you fight to fund and organize it.And thank you to the people of South Apopka for your warmth, your rich history and for your hospitality and patience while spectators walk right through your front yards and you simply smile and say hello.I’m looking forward to next year already.

Ditching the Plow, Reviving the Soil

first_img SHARE Ditching the Plow, Reviving the Soil By Gary Truitt – Jan 3, 2018 Ditching the Plow, Reviving the SoilDavid MontgomeryThe plow is at the heart of farming. Yet more and more farmers are finding a different approach can be good for the soil and good for their bottom line. David Montgomery is a geologist at the University of Washington and he says the plow has, over time, caused a good deal of damage to the environment, ”Long term reliance on the plow has not only degraded organic soil matter but has resulted in the loss of soil off some very large portions of land around the world.” He admits the plow has had some benefits in weed reduction and increased yields but feels long term the negatives outweigh the positives.Yet the damage is not irreversible. Montgomery told HAT he has visited farmers around the world where farmers are rebuilding their soil health, ”There was a simple set of principles being used by the farmers I visited who were successful in improving their soil, ditch the plow, use cover crops, and growing a greater diversity of crops.” He added the farmers who were able to improve their soil health saw increases in productivity and profitability, “They reduced their cost of diesel, fertilizer, and pesticide. They were more profitable than their more conventional neighbors.”David MontgomeryMontgomery, is not advocating a non-technical approach to agriculture but combining technology and ecology in a way that is productive and profitable, “In our modern world we need a small number of farmers feeding a large number of people and for that we need technology. It is a matter of getting modern technology in line with anchent wisdom. The common element is building soil health.” He said it all starts with looking at farming in a new way. A way that considers the environment as well as economics.Mongonery has published a new book “Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life. It is described as a s a good-news environment story. The new book weaves a travelogue with history and science to tell of visits to farms in North and South Dakota, site of the famous Dust Bowl, as well as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Africa and Costa Rica. These farmers use technology ranging from hand-powered machetes to enormous modern no-till seeding machines. Seeing approaches that worked in very different situations, Montgomery sought out the common ground for building fertile soil as a consequence of farming.

US – #WeeklyAddress: May 7-13: Trump suggests revoking press credentials over negative coverage

first_img Organisation May 14, 2018 US – #WeeklyAddress: May 7-13: Trump suggests revoking press credentials over negative coverage News RSF_en June 3, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on United States Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says to go further United StatesAmericas News Help by sharing this information United StatesAmericas Trump suggests revoking press credentials over negative coverage In a May 9 tweet, President Donald Trump suggested revoking the press credentials of “corrupt” media outlets that report on him negatively, calling such reporting “Fake.”Later that day, Yahoo News White House Correspondent Hunter Walter asked Trump during a cabinet meeting if he would ban the press from the White House, to which he did not respond. During a press briefing that afternoon, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked, in reference to Trump’s tweet, if that was a line that the Press Secretary would be willing to cross. Sanders responded: “We’re very committed to a free press. And I think that we demonstrate that every single day, not only by me being up here and taking your questions as I’m doing right now.” She then later stated that it was “an outrageous claim” to suggest this administration does not promote freedom of the press.The White House Correspondents’ Association reacted to the president’s tweet, stating: “A free press must be able to report on the good, the bad, the momentous and the mundane, without fear or favor. And a president preventing a free and independent press from covering the workings of our republic would be an unconscionable assault on the First Amendment.”After NBC News released an article that claimed Trump called for an increase in the US nuclear arsenal, the president suggested in an October tweet that media licenses should be challenged if they report false information. Similarly, multiple news outlets were banned in February 2017 from an off-camera White House press gaggle, to which only a handpicked group of reporters—mostly from outlets that have covered Trump favorably—were invited.Bill O’Reilly discusses wanting to choke Jim AcostaFormer Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said during a speech at a party on May 6 that he would like to choke CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who was not in the audience. First reported on May 7, O’Reilly told a crowd that included White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, “I would love just to get my big hands around Jim Acosta’s neck.” The party was in celebration of the new United States Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grinnell. The next day, O’Reilly revealed during his online show, called “No Spin News” a conversation he had with Sanders at the private celebration, in which he volunteered to accompany her at press briefings. “And if somebody gets out of line I will tell them exactly what I think of their behavior,” he had said. During her time as press secretary, Sanders and Acosta have had a tumultuous relationship. According to the US Press Freedom Tracker, of which Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is a part, eight journalists have so far been physically attacked in the US in 2018. The most recent attack reported by the Press Freedom Tracker occurred last month when ABC7 Eyewitness News reporter Tim Fleischer was punched in the face while covering a story in Queens, New York.New Secretary of State takes no questions from press during first press conferenceNewly-appointed State Secretary Mike Pompeo didn’t take questions from reporters during his first press conference on May 7. The presser was held to allow Pompeo to discuss modernizing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), security concerns, and drug trafficking. During Pompeo’s confirmation hearing last month, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker asked him his stance on press freedom. Booker said, “You’re going to engage with the press. Be open, be transparent, allow a robust engagement,” to which Pompeo responded: “It is my every intention, yes.” Prior to his dismissal, former State Secretary Rex Tillerson often limited press access; he held press conferences that only included foreign media outlets and invited only one reporter on his first trip to Asia in March 2017.FCC’s ruling to end net neutrality will go into effect next monthOn May 9, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced Obama-era net neutrality rules will expire on June 11. The new rules could allow Internet providers to block, slow down, or discriminate against online content. In December, the FCC voted 3-2 to repeal protections that had been adopted under President Obama. Eliminating net neutrality could negatively impact the free flow of information and the plurality of voices online. Some 22 states have sued the FCC to try and stop these new rules from taking effect, and the Senate is expected to vote to prevent the repeal of net neutrality this week.

Lasting faith: Pleasant Hill M.B. celebrates 156th anniversary

first_img Book Nook to reopen Mildred Wilson Jones gave the history of “the church on the little dirt road.”“Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church has withstood the test of time,” Jones said. “Pleasant Hill had its beginning with our people who sat on the back row of Springfield Baptist Church and those who stood outside below the windows to listen to the Word of God.”Jones said the early members were eager for the sweetness of the gospel and began to hold their own worship services under a brush arbor in a clearing on the fringe of the wood. In time, permission was granted for a Missionary Baptist church to be formed. The church building was later constructed on property that had been purchased for the sum of $75. Email the author “Today is a time for us to kneel and pray in the old-timey way,” said Michelle Griffin, mistress of ceremonies. The anniversary celebration recalled the former pastors and deacons of the historic Missionary Baptist church and the Pleasant Hill Pioneers who continue to provide a strong foundation for the church that has provided spiritual nourishment for its members for more than a century and a half.“Things may not have come when we wanted them but they have come right on time,” said the Rev.
