Via thegrio.com: Austin, Texas city leaders are working to clean up their streets by changing street names of racist leaders and their efforts could extend to the city name itself.
Austin, which is the Texas state capital, was named after Stephen F. Austin, named as the “father of Texas” who supported slavery and said if slaves were freed, they would turn into “vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace.”
The committee argues that Stephen Austin “fought to defend slavery in spite of Mexico’s effort to ban it; believed slave labor indispensable to Texas to flourish in its production of sugar and cotton; believed that if slaves were emancipated they would turn into ‘vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace.”
Austin also believed that slaveowners should be compensated if their slaves were freed, the committee members said.
In a wide-ranging report, Austin’s Equity Office suggested the following name changes:
Littlefield Street, named for Confederate Army Major George Littlefield; Sneed Cove, named for Sebron Sneed, Confederate provost marshal; and Confederate Avenue, a street located in a historically Black neighborhood.
Also recommended was changing the name of the Stephen F. Austin Drive and Stephen Austin Recreation Center.
The group wants any Confederate markers removed throughout the city as well.
In compiling the list, chief equity officer Brion Oaks wrote that “nearly all monuments to the Confederacy and its leaders were erected without a true democratic process.
“People of color often had no voice and no opportunity to raise concerns about the city’s decision to honor Confederate leaders,” he continued. “This process not only calls attention to remediating symbols of the Confederacy in our city, but creates a new opportunity for us to rename these symbols in order to commemorate the current values and legacy of those we choose to honor in our community’s public spaces.”

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Rev. Vernon Johns. Johns was the pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, from 1947-1952 and preceded Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as pastor. Johns did not shy away from controversy and the plight of blacks in his city. After a series of abusive events by the Montgomery Police Department, Johns used his pulpit to speak out and try to organize the community.

But, one particular sermon he gave led to his arrest. A Black man running down the street was killed by a White man with a shotgun. The White man claimed that, “If he was running, he must have done something.” It was the second week of May in 1949. He put up on the church sign the title for the Sunday’s upcoming service, “It’s safe to murder Negroes.” Johns said during that sermon: “I just want to remind you what the clearest and simplest of these great Ten Commandments is: Thou shalt not kill. The Birmingham paper says that you have a better chance in 1948 of being murdered in Alabama than anywhere in the U.S. A lot of the people doing the killing are the police officers who should know the law as well as anybody.

But you know there is no justifiable homicide. God never spoke about justifiable homicide. He said Thou shalt not kill. He didn’t say thou shalt not kill, unless you’ve got an excuse. He didn’t say thou shalt not kill, unless you are a police officer. And he most assuredly did not say thou shalt not kill, unless you’re White.

I’ll tell you why it’s safe to murder Negroes. Because Negroes stand by and let it happen. Do you know what occurred to me as I watched that cross burning in front of the church? When the Klan burns a cross it’s a message. The next step is lynching.” Police arrested Johns in front of the congregation and he was charged with incitement for his remarks that Sunday.

Constructed in 1912, the tunnel runs under Hulsey Yard and has two lanes for traffic, as well as pedestrian walkways. The tunnel runs between DeKalb Avenue on the Inman Park side and Wylie Street on the Cabbagetown side. The tunnel also doubles as a message board, and is frequently updated with details for local events, such as concerts and festivals. Artist Amir Totem, who goes by Totem, began painting in the Krog Street Tunnel in 1995, when he says most of the artwork there was mere scrawlings or done by stencil. “There was no art in there. It was just like tags from people passing through from neighborhood to neighborhood,” Totem said. “It was never extravagant like it is now. There were no completed pieces or anything like that in there at that time.” Krog Street Tunnel is a continually evolving canvas updated by graffiti artists. The city of Atlanta is working to incorporate the tunnel into the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail extension. | “Krog Street Tunnel” by @eknightpaintings is currently being shown, at @brickworksgallery as part of a larger series entitled “Walking The ATL” . STOP BY THE GALLERY THIS WEEKEND, AND CHECK OUT THIS AMAZING WORK! AND MORE 💚

I had never lived in a small town.
I’m from the suburbs even though I like to tell people that I’m from the big city.
The back of my car has a bumper sticker from Frank’s Pizza on Main Street that says “I HEART H-TOWN”, although the heart is two pizza slices put together.
I worked in an ice cream shop first. Well, it was actually frozen custard but most people don’t know the difference so I choose to leave that part out.
I couldn’t stand the manager so I left as soon as I got the opportunity to work at a sandwich shop on the side of the highway.
I quit when I left for the small town.
I had turned eighteen seven days before this. I got my first tattoo seven days before this.
On my third day here, I went to the local dying mall to get my ears pierced for thirty-five dollars.
After five days here, I began working at a different sandwich shop.
I hated the place.
Well, not at first, you see. I was excited because I had income, but I started noticing things.
Like the fact that everyone here wears frowns. It’s as if it’s ingrained in them, even though it doesn’t need to be. Like the lucky watch that Richard, at the age of thirty-seven, hasn’t taken off in ten years except to shower.
I noticed that my coworker, Jeremy, at twenty-one years old, has never lived anywhere outside of this town. This twenty square mile town.
I noticed that Emily is nineteen years old and has four tattoos from her chest up that she got done in her ex-boyfriend’s uncle’s RV. She hates them.
I noticed that Cassandra has Schizophrenia that went undiagnosed, yet still lost her her last three jobs, soon to be four.
I noticed that Bobby, the clerk at the gas station on 6th Avenue, always smiles for his customers but is dealing with anger issues that he is trying to confront but just can’t for god knows what reason.
I noticed that my favorite customer, Joey, has become so accustomed to the idea that he’ll always work at the steel mill down the road that he’d stopped considering the fact that he was his high school valedictorian thirty years ago.

I noticed that everyone who comes here leaves, but everyone already here can’t.

And then I thought to myself, am I any different?

And 10 year old Tulip is the perfect canine companion to enjoy all that each season has to offer! Tulip is up for adoption in the New York City area and is searching for her human family. She is friendly with all people and animals and simply enjoys taking in the sights and sounds around her. Her age may suggest to some people that she is a bit "weathered," but for those who enjoy the wiser, calmer and more refined aspects of life, then 10 year old Tulip's age is simply a bonus.
@friendswithfourpaws wrote, "Tulip is 10 years old, weighs 8lbs and is looking for nothing more than a life to brighten with her sweet and beautiful spirit. She is leash, crate AND house trained but mainly she wants a hooman to adore and care for (and not move too fast- she's a lady enjoying the view!). She is a true classic who everyone will love!
Tulip is in excellent health. She has not a complaint about anyone- dog, cat or child! Who doesn’t need that in their life at springtime, and all year round?!? Inquire about Tulip today and your day will be brighter in moments!" To adopt Tulip, please email [email protected] to apply. Adopters must submit an application. (If you live in the NYC area, we invite to meet Tulip at a special senior-dogs-only adoption event hosted by @susiesseniordogs next Saturday, May 12th! The adoption event will take place from 12-2PM in Chelsea, Manhattan at the Farmer's Market located on the corner of 23rd Street & 9th avenue. All are welcome!)

This American Flag was made by Larry Allan Soll who told Taya he made it to “honor and remember the distinguished service of your late great husband, Chris”. We love this flag so much and all that it represents, not just in remembrance of Chris but for the honor of all military and first responders. •
Read the Larry’s story below: •
“On September 11, 2001, I watched the horrific events of that day of pure evil. It left me with a deep sense of sadness and overwhelming sympathy for all of those innocent victims and the first responders, both Fire and Police who made the ultimate sacrifice to save people trapped in the Twin Towers.
Shortly thereafter, I felt deeply compelled to do something to honor and remember these brave, courageous and selfless great Americans. I decided to make and dedicate these memorial U.S. flags. I donated them to the NYC Fire Museum, the NYC Police Museum, the firehouse Engine 54 /Ladder 4 at 8th avenue and 48th street in NYC. I also donated flags to the Cradle of Aviation Museum (Garden City, Long Island) and the Fraternal Order of Police Headquarters (Hicksville, NY). We must Never Forget these great people and their families who sacrifice all to save so many others.
God Bless Our Troops!
God Bless America!” #HonorChrisKyle

Two people are dead and another dozen injured after a lone gunman walked along Toronto’s busy Danforth Avenue on Sunday night, randomly shooting pedestrians before opening fire on crowded restaurants.
.
The 29-year-old shooter was found dead in a nearby alley after an exchange of gunfire with police, though it remains unclear if he died by suicide. His identity has not been released. The Special Investigation Unit is leading the case and has assigned six investigators and three forensic investigators.
.
Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders confirmed the man used a handgun, but refused to speculate on a motive. This mass shooting comes just three months after a random van attack in the city killed 10 people and injured 16 others.
.
“When we can provide more information we definitely will, but right now it’s important we don’t speculate,” the chief said late Sunday night as investigators combed the street, placing coffee cups over dozens of bullets and casings left on the ground.
.
Chief Saunders said a young woman died and that several more victims were gravely wounded. Monday morning SIU announced a second person had died, but did not release any further details. A young girl, described as being eight or nine years old, was in critical condition Sunday night. Others are being treated in hospital for various injuries.
.
The shooting spree lasted just minutes but spanned blocks, sparking terror across the busy Greektown neighbourhood around 10 p.m. Sunday as diners and patrons ran for cover, some initially mistaking the gunshots as fire crackers.

Philadelphia police are investigating a number of serious incidents following a violent night across the city that left one person dead.

The violence all started around early Thursday morning with a shooting in West Oak Lane, a deadly robbery and triple shooting in West Philadelphia, and a double shooting not far away.

A 23-year-old man was taken to the hospital after he was shot at 65th and Wyncote Streets in West Oak Lane. Police say the victim was shot in the chest and arm outside of his girlfriend's home just after 2 a.m.

A total of five people were shot in West Philadelphia overnight. Around 2:20 a.m. police say three men were struck by gunfire at 60th and Spruce Streets. All three were taken to the hospital and one of them remains in critical condition. The other two victims are in stable condition.

Not far away, two other men, including a 95-year-old victim, were shot through the front window of a home on the 5200 block of Rodman Street around 3 a.m.

Police say a suspect fired five shots through a front window of the home from the front porch. A 32-year-man was also injured in the shooting. Three other people, including a two-year-old child, were also in the home at the time of the incident but were not injured.
7 total men shot in Philly in four separate shootings between 12:24am&3:15am.

No arrests have been made in any of the incidents.

(near) OKLAHOMA CITY, OK: 10 year old Etta has so much life experience she could host her own podcast. This little ol' lady has a story to tell, but it's her perseverance that is most telling of her personality. Etta was once left abandoned on the side of the road and in rough shape. And she's all the more resilient because of her past. She's made her way into foster care, but there are too many other animals to share the love with. Etta deserves more one-on-one care and hopes to find her special someone soon. PLEASE SHARE! 🌟💛🌟💛 @petsandpeoplehumanesociet wrote, "Etta is a tiny 10 year old #Chihuahua who is very hard to get pictures of because of her happy tail always wagging! She was found beside a busy street, just sitting there. It appeared she had been dumped there. She was covered in fleas. No one ever came looking for her or posting anywhere that they lost her. Etta is now with a foster but is having to share the attention with many others dogs.
Etta is special needs and really needs a home and love of her own. She is fine with all the other dogs in her foster. She just needs a lap of her own. Etta requires two tiny shots of insulin a day because we discovered she is diabetic. But she takes it like a champ. This sweet baby is worth it! Also, due to the untreated diabetes before we got her, she has now lost her eyesight. She is learning to navigate with her nose and is doing very well now. She is so dependent on her nose that she seldom raises her head from the ground. :) Etta is doing great with potty training and uses the wee-pad or goes out to do her business when let outside. This girl will be a perfect buddy for someone!

We will adopt out of area but the family has to be willing to come and meet her. We do not ship our pets." Etta's adoption comes with a 6 month supply of #insulin. If you have any concerns with her #diabetes, please just ask!
To adopt Etta, please email [email protected] to apply!

Regrann from @iamtimthomas - (King) Tim Thomas Way🙏🏾 The street outside of the former Paterson Catholic High School has been designated as “Tim Thomas Way” in tribute to the retired basketball star.

Thomas, a native son of Paterson, graduated from the high school. He was rated as a top player and viewed as a future professional basketball stars while in high school. He was selected to the McDonald’s All-American team after averaging 25.3 points and 14.5 rebounds per game as a senior. Thomas played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for 13 years. He played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Clippers, and Dallas Mavericks.

The resolution designating the street in Thomas’ honor says he is “one of the best basketball players from New Jersey.” It also states, Thomas “never” forgot his hometown. He was a major donor to the former Paterson Catholic High School, the city’s recreation program, the Paterson AAU Basketball programs, and the Paterson Youth Football League.

Thomas’ contribution “exceeded $1 million,” says the resolution. He provided scholarships to local young people to attend private high school and college.

The city council last week approved the resolution designating 764 11th Avenue to also be known as “Tim Thomas Way.” Council members William McKoy and Kenneth Morris sponsored the measure. #PatersonNj #Nj #PatersonCatholic #Blessed - #regrann

“This New Yorker parked his wheelchair on a busy Fifth Avenue sidewalk. I watched him from across the street as he watched back,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Bridget Gleason. “Did he purposely position himself here for this moment? Did other people see him too? Out of all the shops in the city, he chose to sit in front of this advertisement of tall, thin model legs selling fashion and beauty — but the real beauty was the moment this man created in the city that never sleeps.”

“What a well-seen photograph. All those legs and a man at the base of the huge photograph in his wheelchair. Sardonic and all the people passing by, to boot, are also timed just right. Really excellent portrait and so many things to look at!” — @natgeo photographer Maggie Steber (@maggiesteber)

(19th teen shot to death in Philadelphia)
Crime scene tape, a shell casing circle and rubber gloves are all that remains at the the corner of Chew Avenue and Montana Street where 19-year-old Thomas Page was shot to death Thursday night. He is the 19th teen murdered in Philadelphia this year. "It's tragic for anybody's child to be killed—or anybody to be killed. it's distressing that this is happening to kids in this city," Homicide Captain John Ryan said.
Police say it was just after 9 p.m. Thursday night when two gunmen walked onto the 200 block of East Montana Street and opened fire on the teen right under a police camera mounted on the pole a few feet away. "He was out there with a friend, they were approached by a group of males, gunfire broke out," Captain Ryan explained.

Investigators say they recovered video of the homicide and the suspects who fired the fatal shots. Shell casing circles lead up an alleyway on this quiet Germantown block just off Chew Avenue. "It's not clear at this point whether it was a robbery or some other dispute that we're unaware of at this time," the captain explained.
The latest police statistics are staggering. 151 teens have been shot in the City of Philadelphia so far this year. 19 between the ages of 13 and 19 have died from their wounds. These are clearly dangerous times for young people in Philadelphia.
"They're not gonna have a chance to grow up," the captain added.

Police say there were a number of witnesses to the murder. There's a $20,000 reward for information leading to and arrest and conviction. A neighbor described Page as a good kid who was involved in the ROTC program at school.
Family members were unavailable for comment.

Why #Centralpark was created? .
.
Between 1821 and 1855, New York City nearly quadrupled in population. As the city expanded northward up Manhattan, people were drawn to the few existing open spaces, mainly cemeteries, to get away from the noise and chaotic life in the city. Since Central Park was not part of the original Commissioners' Plan of 1811, John Randel, Jr., surveyed the grounds. The only remaining surveying bolt from his survey is still visible; it is embedded in a rock just north of the present Dairy and the 65th Street Transverse, and south of Center Drive. The bolt marks the location where West 65th Street would have intersected Sixth Avenue.

No Christmas Tree and people ice skating at Rockefeller Center. No Saks 5th Avenue. No Central Park. No epic skyline or famous street corners. ⠀

Don’t get me wrong I flew to New York with the intention of taking all those photos, ideally under a fresh blanketing of snow. Instead I got freezing rain. In five days I walked 47 miles through what one friend described as the worst weather the city received all season. As I made my way through the streets “banger” images made less and less sense to me. It wasn’t what I was seeing, so why would I make an effort to take them? For “likes?” ⠀

Interestingly enough this would be the very topic of conversation over burgers at Peter Luger’s with @twheat and @samhorine. Two amazing photographers in their own right, and members of the original school that established the early look of Instagram. For over two hours we talked about “likes,” advertising to friends, and the echo chamber this platform has become. ⠀

For me what stood out most about New York was the people. The very first person I met was a woman from Argentina who didn’t speak a word of English. I gave her directions in bad Spanish. The second, a woman with a heavy Brooklyn accent, dropped wisdom when she said to me, “we never stop learning. Like a doctor.” Talked start-ups, venture capital, marketing and branding with Adrian G. of Keyo and Mark Davis of Interplay Ventures. Met
@thesailingcollective after a dinner put on by @flannerykk. Spent time with the young creatives at @plural_co. Chef @laurengerrie pointed me in the direction of all things delicious! My friend Dan, who I hadn’t seen in five years, waxed on about the Meyers-Briggs over beers. (I’m an INFJ for those that keep track.) Spent time with Christa Hall of @cityharvestnyc who spoke to me about food scarcity and the general lack of food education. Made it to a holiday market to support friends and the launching of their holistic skincare line @maisonskin. Rendezvoused with Dan of @alloyandgrit, and lastly said hi to my boys at @huckberry.
On and on it went. But like I said, I took no “banger” photos in New York. ⠀

Once again....the world and Black America are fooled by the “crafty ways” of the giant corporations that make their money off of “sheeple” and the #1 consumers in America......”African-Americans”. But how was we supposed to know? Well, we wouldn’t know if we believe everything we see on “TV Programming” which is controlled by the European Jews. This is a pretty well know fact.....Like if we say, Hinduism was started in India. Well, Black people supported the movie “Black Panther” which was brought to us by Marvel Studios and Universal Studios. If you do the research and digging....you will find that the CEO’s and/or founders of these entities are European Jews. Therefore the movie “Black Panther” made over 1 billion dollars....for the European Jewish people and their community. How much “Black Panther” revenue went to “Black Communities” in America or Black Schools or Black Businesses?
Stanley Martin Lieber aka “Stan Lee” founder of Marvel Comics was born on December 28, 1922 in Manhattan, New York City, in the apartment of his Romanian-born Jewish immigrant parents, Celia (née Solomon) and Jack Lieber, at the corner of West 98th Street and West End Avenue in Manhattan.

So Who Controls NIKE?
1. Philip H. Knight – Chairman of the Board of Directors

2. Mark Parker - President & CEO of NIKE, INC.

3. John Slusher – EVP, Global Sports Marketing

4. Eric Sprunk – COO

If you do the research and digging you will find.....where our “Black dollars” we give to Nike is going.....while tons of Black people are impoverished or are in Prison. It doesn’t matter if Nike give a Basketball player or a Football player a 1 Billion dollar contract. That “Black” Player....CANNOT use that money to “Empower” Black America. That goes against the rules and terms of agreements. Once you “Bend the Knee” to Massa and sign on the dotted line....you gotta keep the contract. This is why no major black filmmakers will touch or make a movie showing we are the Real Israelites (Jews) nor will our rich black millionaires/billionaires in America all come together to bring back “Black Wall Street” to every black community in America. The “System” will collapse.

Citizens are growing ill due to, what the media calls, a violent strain of the flu. Remedies existed. However, most of Blüdhaven's population couldn't afford them. Hospitals could hardly identify the illness—nobody was checking in.
What nobody bothered to mention: Plants, and animals grew sickly as well. Greens turn to grays and life turns to death. The city is dying.
Dick looks to the source of the death.
~
Residents on Bryant Avenue reported a rat problem. The city identified the source at the sewer drains on the block. So the city flushed them out with an absurd amount of water. Rather than drown, the rats overflowed onto the street. However, what the people of Bryant Ave. did not know was that the rats they saw were the only ones alive. The city then disposed of the rats by dumping them into the harbor. First rats, then fish. Humans followed. And finally, plants became infected.
~
Dick, equipped with an electric lantern and an air purifier over his lips, heads into the sewers of Bryant Ave. Trudging through the murky, gray waters of the underground, Nightwing discovers a monster slowly regenerating his body from their last fight.

It’s hard to explain. They see the news. They have seen the videos. The best we can do is keep the memories alive and continue to fight for our country. To stand up for ourselves. To be Inclusive. To be kind. To be strong. To be passionate. To work hard. To do the right thing. To be who we want to be. To never settle. To honor those who protect us. That’s what I tell my kids. I (Melissa) was in Toronto and 8 months pregnant and felt tremendous sadness and longed to be with my fellow New Yorkers. I used to take the path train under the World Train Center everyday to get to work @MSNBC in NJ and I took the train at 845am everyday. I felt lucky to be in Canada and also felt sick for my New Yorkers. I wanted to return to my city and couldn’t get back. I couldn’t get home. Where were you and what do you tell your children?

The object, however, turned out to be a metal pipe with a knob on it.

The shooting drew a tense, charged crowd of dozens to the streets of Crown Heights. The Police Department had encountered the man before and classified him as emotionally disturbed, and the shooting raised questions about what the officers at the scene knew about him.

Five officers — three of them in street clothes, two in uniform — were responding to three 911 calls about a man threatening people with a silver gun near the corner of Montgomery Street and Utica Avenue in Crown Heights, Terence A. Monahan, the chief of department, said at a news conference. A law enforcement official who listened to one of the calls said a woman was frantically reporting that a man was pointing a gun at people.

The police found a man who matched descriptions from the 911 callers, Chief Monahan said. “The suspect then took a two-handed shooting stance and pointed an object at the approaching officers,” Chief Monahan said.” (NY Times, BENJAMIN MUELLER and NATE SCHWEBER APRIL 4, 2018) Continued in comments.

1 - Harlem, New York: Dancers in artist Ebony Golden's “125th and Freedom” performance proceed down the thoroughfare. Part protest and part parade, the choreographed production along what is also known as 125th Street explores migration, gentrification, and emancipation in a society that, in King’s words, puts profits over people. Harlem has long been a hub of black art, life, and culture in America. On September 20, 1958 Dr. Martin Luther King was stabbed by Izola Ware Curry with a letter opener, nearly missing his heart, after a book signing at L.M. Blumstein’s department store, formerly located at 230 W. 125th St., near Seventh Ave. In 1984, 125th street was co-named after Dr. King from 1st Avenue to 12th Avenue.

2 - Memphis, Tennessee: The Wm. C Ellis & Sons Machine Shop, slated for redevelopment, at the corner of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Front Street. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. traveled to Memphis in support of striking African American city sanitation workers. The workers had staged a walkout on February 11, 1968, to protest unequal wages and working conditions imposed by then-mayor Henry Loeb. On April 3, 1968, Dr. King returned to Memphis to deliver what would be his last speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”, at the Mason Temple (Church of God in Christ Headquarters). On the following day, King was assassinated by James Earl Ray at the Lorraine Motel. On April 4, 2012, 44 years after his death, the city renamed a 1-mile stretch of Linden Avenue in his name.

I worked in the NYC diamond district on 48th and 5th on Tuesday September 11, 2001. My thoughts and feelings of that day, 17 years later, are as if only moments have passed. Standing, crying with many others on 5th Avenue that morning in the moments that we watched those beautiful buildings fall and innocent people die right there in front of our eyes. People were distraught and literally collapsing in the street. I don’t know that the absolute horror can be expressed in these words or on a screen. I only know what I saw that day and the days following. This vivacious city that I love, broken-hearted. I will never forget and we will always remember.
It took me most the day to just get this out.
Prayers and love to every human affected by the senseless acts of hate in this world. ✌️💙💙

As word travels fast in a small city and a good many of you have already heard the secret.... @laurafallsdown and I have officially signed a lease and will be opening a bar at 112 24th Street North called Queen’s Park, after one of our favorite cocktails, the Queen’s Park Swizzle. The concept is a Classic Cocktail bar with light bar snacks. We were waiting to officially announce it until everything was ready with our website and such, but we felt like it was time to go ahead and officially announce everything, so that we could tell as many people as possible, without them hearing about it from someone else. With that, I will be stepping away from my home of the last decade at Dave’s Pub, starting in the beginning of May. Not sure if I can explain how excited I am to be opening my own bar with my favorite person in the world. Thank you to everybody for supporting me throughout the years, as I have had the pleasure of growing and learning every angle of this business and seeing our wonderful city grow beyond my imagination. As I leave 5 Points South and the corner of 20th Street and Highland Avenue for the first time in 13 years, I look forward to doing my best to create a space for everyone to feel welcome in, on the North side of town. There are so many great bars in this city, and I hope to add onto the already extremely amazing cocktail revolution that has been happening all around this city for the last several years. Thank you all once again, and Laura and I look forward to welcoming you into our little space on the North Side,sometime soon.

Shortly after 1:00 pm, San Bernardino County Fire responded to reports of a vegetation fire near 21st Street and North Campus Avenue in the city of Upland. Smoke could be seen from as far away as the 15/60 interchange.
Initial units arrived to find half an acre of dense brush burning under power lines in a wash that borders the cities of Upland and Rancho Cucamonga. Under the influence of light winds, the fire was moving toward the north paralleling homes above the Colony community of Upland.
Due to the fire’s potential to threaten structures, a second alarm was assigned to reinforce initial attack resources. County Fire handcrews quickly arrived to augment the engine companies’ attack, and the fire was ultimately contained in just under an hour.

Thanks to the quick response, the fire was held to 1.7 acres with no damage to any structures and no injuries to civilians or firefighters.
Ten engines, three handcrews, four chief officers, and two investigators were assigned to the incident. County Fire received automatic aid from Rancho Cucamonga Fire District. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

In this instance, County Fire was able to keep this fire small due to early identification by 911 callers and an aggressive initial attack. As we enter into the warmer, drier months of the year, we encourage people to remain vigilant and report fires as quickly and safely as possible.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Rev. Vernon Johns. Johns was the pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, from 1947-1952 and preceded Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as pastor. Johns did not shy away from controversy and the plight of blacks in his city. After a series of abusive events by the Montgomery Police Department, Johns used his pulpit to speak out and try to organize the community.

But, one particular sermon he gave led to his arrest. A Black man running down the street was killed by a White man with a shotgun. The White man claimed that, “If he was running, he must have done something.” It was the second week of May in 1949. He put up on the church sign the title for the Sunday’s upcoming service, “It’s safe to murder Negroes.” Johns said during that sermon: “I just want to remind you what the clearest and simplest of these great Ten Commandments is: Thou shalt not kill. The Birmingham paper says that you have a better chance in 1948 of being murdered in Alabama than anywhere in the U.S. A lot of the people doing the killing are the police officers who should know the law as well as anybody.

But you know there is no justifiable homicide. God never spoke about justifiable homicide. He said Thou shalt not kill. He didn’t say thou shalt not kill, unless you’ve got an excuse. He didn’t say thou shalt not kill, unless you are a police officer. And he most assuredly did not say thou shalt not kill, unless you’re White.

I’ll tell you why it’s safe to murder Negroes. Because Negroes stand by and let it happen. Do you know what occurred to me as I watched that cross burning in front of the church? When the Klan burns a cross it’s a message. The next step is lynching.” Police arrested Johns in front of the congregation and he was charged with incitement for his remarks that Sunday.
