    The Dangers of FKT Ultra Trail Running

    in Sports

    For those out of the running jargon loop, an F.K.T. is the acronym for a “fastest known time” event. Generally orchestrated by a few brace souls who develop an event never run before to establish a record.  Running a trail race that has never been attempted comes with a great deal of risk. Getting lost, being in inaccessible terrain for extended periods is very dangerous and not for the meek.  Join us as we invite Charlie Engle back to share the exploits of his and Nickademus Hollon’s attempt at the Sea to Sea Ultra F.K.T. project, an Ultra trail running event of over 140 miles of unforgiving terrain.www.naturalrunningnetwork.com

    The Coal Miner

    in Politics

    The nation pledged to the coal miners’ union in 1946 that, in exchange for their dangerous but critical work, miners’ pensions and health care would always be secure. Letting the UMWA pension fund collapse would be foolhardy as well as inhumane, costing taxpayers more in the long run while also endangering the government’s Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.But the UMWA endorsed McConnell’s Democratic opponent in 2014; non-union coal companies, such as Joe Craft’s Alliance Resource Partners, are thought to oppose the measure.In this season of giving, McConnell naturally wants to thank Craft for the millions of dollars he’s given Republican candidates and committees. But McConnell should find a way that does not deprive retired miners and their widows of benefits they were promised and earned..kentucky.com Lexington Herald Leader

    Guardian talk with Brad

    in Military

    JENNIFER ORN I have lived all over the country. I was born in MN and due to my father’s job (Federal Bureau of Prison’s) we moved around a lot. Virginia, California, Alabama, Pennsylvania and Tennessee are all on the list. When I was approximately 16, we ended up back in MN. I’ve also briefly lived in TX and OK as an adult. I received a softball scholarship out of high school to a DII school in MN. After being there for one semester, I realized it wasn’t for me. So, I enlisted in the MN Air National Guard. After completing AF basic training I completed the AF Security Forces Academy. A few months after completing all of my training I returned to my home station in St. Paul, MN. I was then sent to Desert Warfare Training with others from my unit and ultimately deployed for 6 months to Saudi Arabia.After I returned home, I continued my college education. I received my A.S. in Law enforcement and got hired on with a local police department (WI). I attended the WI State Law Enforcement Academy and I worked at that department for a little over 3 years. I ended up leaving that department to pursue a few other things. I ultimately ended up at another department in central MN. After being at this department for almost 2 years, I decided to resign.I am currently a professional dog trainer and animal behavior specialist. I attended a dog training school in TX and will be starting an internship at a dog training facility in another part of TX. I have already started my LLC (Liberty K9 LLC), and am just waiting to return home to get that going full swing.I have 3 awesome dogs, a wonderful boyfriend.

    Who's Talking to Black Folks This Campaign Season???

    in News

    Black family. Election season is upon us and as candidate after candidate jockey for or presumed voting power one thing remains evident, the politicians of today aren't speaking to us! They talk at us. They talk over us but none are talking TO us. We are being told what to believe, who to trust, who to vote for, what is priority in our lives and what is not. We are not being asked directly what matters to us and being provided an answer with accountability measures in place. 

    Hillary Clinton, wife of what many blacks like to deem the First black president Bill Clinton, is making a second run for the presidential seat. The same woman who's brother sits on the board of the VCS Mining Company currently attempting to extract Haiti's gold deposits but has no mining experience. Black family, listen closely. If Haiti is sitting on gold and oil deposits why is a foreign, American/European extension on our family's land stealing their resources? Black woman. We know how much you love to look your best. Imagine you're in the shower or in bed and a guest you opened your doors to ends up stealing all your jewelry and accessories while at the same time leaving a meal on the table for you. How would you react? 
    Hillary Clinton, the same woman that supported Bill destroying Black and Brown families all across America with the 3 strikes rule. They admitted that the policy was detrimental to our communities. They admitted the errors in the implementation of that policy. 


    The same woman, who's husband convinced the Haitian people to stop growing their own rice and to purchase rice imports as an alternative. Again, after the fact, they admitted it was the wrong decision to force the Haitian people to make. Democrats in general are killing the Black community seducing us into being dependent on government assistance and subsidies instead of encouraging self sufficiency and independence.

    Carter G. Woodson and the History of Black History Month

    in Culture

    Carter Godwin Woodson (Dec. 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In Feb. 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.

    Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson.[5] His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.


    Coming from a large, poor family, Carter could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, Carter went to Fayette County to earn a living as a miner in the coal fields. He was able to devote only a few months each year to his schooling.


    In 1895, at the age of 20, Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than two years.From 1897 to 1900, Woodson taught at Winona in Fayette County. In 1900 he was selected as the principal of Douglass High School. He earned his Bachelor of Literature degree from Berea College in Kentucky in 1903 by taking classes part-time between 1901 and 1903.
