    Justice Clarke @ 4th & Baker Presents: WB - Interview with Lillianne Ama Crane

    in Poetry

    Bio (Lillianne Ama Crane):

    My name is Lillianne Ama Crane. I was born in Memphis Tennessee, raised in the mountains of NC during a time when drugs and prostitution were considered normal & suits and ties were something I only saw on one of the 2 television channels we could view via our 18 inch, copper antenna equipped T.V. In other words, I grew up in the streets and poor! I would be lying if I said my childhood were bad because it wasn't. I was the only child being sheltered by hippies, drunks, hustlers, pimps, whores... And they all had their different charms.  Even though I spent the majority of my youth wandering in the forest and communing with imaginary friends or "ghosts..." I was never lonely. I took the memories with me into adulthood.  I am a poet and an author. I published my first book, "Sweet Dreams of Josephine," in 2011. It was about a lady who turns herself into a madame and runs away from her tyrannical international drug dealer husband, following in the footsteps of her idol- Cocaine queen, Griselda Blanco. This was the first in the series and the second book, "Curse of the Blood Diamond", will come out soon. I live my life based on the principal that I don't have to be a product of my environment. Aside from writing, I am a quality engineer for an automotive corporation and a small business owner for a janitorial franchise. My passion is words... I love the written arts. Words can build things up, as well as tear them down. They can enchantment,  charm, & even enslave. My goal is to master the written arts. With a little love and willpower, I have faith that somewhere, somebody will fall in love with the words I choose to convey a message or tell a story- and that maybe, I can help someone see past the harsh reality of life and into world that we can create for ourselves.

    How Miami snowed the Feds in the 1980s with "cocaine running round the bay"

    in History

    Jon is flabberghasted by the fact that the drug war in Miami was so intense in the early 1980s that even Ronald Reagan was advised not to enter the city of Miami at ALL.  The early 1980s was brought on by a borderless situation where drug lords overran local civil authority in Mexico, Colombia and other Central American states.  1 in every 4 people who died in Colombia died by drug related offenses.  It didn't help that by the mid 1980s, Nicaragua and El Salvador was infiltrated by the CIA who were training rebels to fight the powers that be.  This probably irritated drug lords more that America had their hand in the cookie jar.  Jon goes into the dynamics of the drug trade in Florida, not necessarily the government underpinnings.

    There is a 10 minute vignette on the high school scene at McDonalds in Duluth.

    in Spirituality

    Rev Sheila Blanco-Pedrosa, Sr Pastor of Harmony Metaphysical Church, is a clairvoyant medium, with formal training initially under Bishop Hazel Burns, emeritus, a minister with the Rose of Sharon Spiritualist Church in Tampa, FL. She completed her training, at Harmony, under the guidance of Rev Donna Jean Guerra, Emeritus.

    A spiritual Truth-seeker/practitioner; Rev Sheila, as she is fondly called, has the ability to engage her audience and exudes an energy on the pulpit that often leads people into a  rediscovered sense of self-worth, peace of mind, serious (and sometimes not so serious) life change and laughter.

    Using laughter and encouraging her parishioners to be “thinking “Metaphysicians/Lightworkers, Rev Sheila presents spiritual concepts in a practical format, making them relevant to modern day thinking.

    Harmony Metaphysical Church is a multi-denominational spiritual center, and regardless of the spiritual/religious path you have traveled (past or present) Rev Sheila encourages you not to “throw out the baby with the bath water”, as you expand your spiritual consciousness. 

    Change your thinking and change your life!

    Playing to Win At the Broadband Ballot Box

    in Internet

    State laws mandating these public-owned broadband networks get voter approval through referendum campaigns used to mean near-certain death for any project. Kiss those days goodbye! Meet the winners who have turned the tide. 

    November 4, EIGHT towns and counties all passed ballot initiatives to return the authority to pursue broadband to their constituents. With 70% or more of the vote. Predominately Democrat or Republican didn’t matter. How did they do that!? Representatives of Boulder, Rio Blanco, San Miguel, Yuma County and other communities give us the scoop on how they pulled off these big wins.

    We’re going to find out:

    Are the political winds blowing heavily community broadband’s way?
    At the local level, is broadband now a bipartisan issue?
    What tactics were effective getting these referenda passed?
    What happened to the giant telcos and cable companies?
    What comes next for these communities?
    Will there be a flood of communities rolling out their own ballot initiatives?
