    Residents speak out about CATCH and KILL event on Moosehead Lake in Maine

    in Sports

    There is an upcoming event this Sunday June 14th on Moosehead Lake in Maine that is a Catch event only for smallmouth bass and perch, They are calling this event the Invasive Species Fishing Derby.. We will be talking to Corey Vose who is the president of the Man vs. Bass Maine Trail  a few other residents  and avid bass anglers about their thoughts on this event in their state..


    It's unfortunate that the organizers of this event are closed minded to the reality of what Bass fishing brings into this state. Just this year, there was a report that came out stating that bass fishing was the #1 revenue driver for fishing in Maine. To my friends from Maine and afar, remember that Moosehead Lake, Maine does not want your hard earned money. - This was posted by Moosehead Lake News & Information Facebook page...

    BIA’s position on the INA 212 Waiver for lawful permanent residents who adjusted

    in Legal

    BIA’s position on the INA 212 Waiver for lawful permanent residents


    In a recent decision, Matter of J-H-J-, 26 I & N Dec. 563 (BIA 2015), the Board of Immigration Appeals held, An alien who adjusted status in the United States, and who has not entered as a lawful permanent resident, is not barred from establishing eligibility for a waiver of inadmissibility under section 212(h) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1182(h) (2012), as a result of an aggravated felony conviction. Matter of E.W. Rodriguez, 25 I&N Dec. 784 (BIA 2012), and Matter of Koljenovic, 25 I&N Dec. 219 (BIA 2010), withdrawn.


    When Congress amended the immigration laws a few years ago, it disallowed green card holder the ability to cancel deportation if that person committed an aggravated felony. For a number of years now, the various federal circuit courts of appeals struggled with the issue of whether a person who adjusted status in the US is still eligible for a discretionary waiver after committing an aggravated felony.  Most circuits (2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 7th, 9th, 10, & 11th). The 8th circuit said no, Roberts v. Holder. The 1st circuit has not decided that issue. The BIA in a minor holding said that since most circuits (9 out of 11 said yes it have to create uniformity through the country. If you consular processed for your green card, no waiver is available for an aggravated felony.

We are at the corner of Washington and Front Streets, with Councilwoman Goosby, and many others standing for what is right.  The Developers are planning to break ground beginning here in this parking area, and many residents are coming out to speak out against it. The Overcrowded schools with 60 students per class, and the imposition of a new 336 unit apartment building a block away will only detract from the education of our students.  Join us live on the phone at 10:30 am 718-305-6322  or click on and hear the voices of those in protest.(blogtalkradio.com /don-durant)

    Veronica Hemphill-Nichols Discusses Fruit Belt Parking & Buffalo Gentrification

    in Current Events

    Downtown residents of Buffalo are feeling pushed-out more and more over the past few years, and most of this has to do with an initiative launched years ago that has little or nothing to do with them, but affects where they currently live and the future of Buffalo, NY.


    What is taking place stands to be part of Buffalo's version of Gentrification called UB 2020 that is eating away at the rights of the immediate black community affecting it-also known as the Fruit Belt-and the latest issue regarding it is the practice of suburban employees who work downtown taking parking spaces in front of homes of residents. A bill that would create a parking permit system is currently having trouble going through.


    Chris will once again interview Veronica Nichols who has been fighting for the residents of the Fruit Belt (where she resides) and nearby McCarley Gardens for the past several years.


    According to a report by WGRZ TV: "The proposal would allow a program to be established along the most heavily impacted streets, including sections of Maple, Mulberry, Locust, Carlton and High streets. Residents would be issued permits to park and 20 percent of the spaces would still be available for non-residential parking.


    Two On Your Side has obtained a document showing that CSEA does not support a permit program because employees have limited places to park.


    Currently, 3,100 employees work at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and only 1,600 spaces are available. In the next five years, 17,000 people are expected to work at the medical campus."

    We Love Pet Therapy-Emotional Support & Service Animals

    in Pets

    About Pet Therapy


    A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.


    The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.


    In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.

    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Business

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama
