REAL TALK based on US Sentencing Commission DRUGS MINUS 2 & RETROACTIVITY
Recently the School Ethics Commission released several advisory opinions which impact the designation of which board members can participate in labor negotiations, as well as in personnel matters. In addition, are there volunteer activities board members may need to shy away from? Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these and other important issues with Joanne Restivo, acting executive director of the School Ethics Commission, and Robert Bender and Mark Finkelstein, commission members.

In Baltimore in 1910, a black Yale law school graduate purchased a home in a previously all-white neighborhood,The Baltimore city government reacted by restricting African Americans to designated blocks. Explaining the policy, Baltimore’s mayor proclaimed, “Blacks should be quarantined in isolated slums in order to reduce the incidence of civil disturbance, to prevent the spread of communicable disease into the nearby White neighborhoods, and to protect property values among the White majority.”Thus began a century of federal, state, and local policies to quarantine Baltimore’s black population in isolated slums—policies that continue to the present day.In 1968, following hundreds of similar riots nationwide, a commission appointed by President Lyndon Johnson concluded that “[o]ur nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “[s]egregation and poverty have created in the racial ghetto a destructive environment totally unknown to most white Americans.” The Kerner Commission (headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner) added that “[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”When the Kerner Commission blamed “white society” and “white institutions,” it employed euphemisms to avoid naming the culprits everyone knew at the time. It was not a vague white society that created ghettos but government—federal, state, and local.In 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court found ordinances like Baltimore’s 1910 segregation rule unconstitutional, not because they abridged African Americans’ rights to live where they could afford, but because they restricted the property rights of (white) homeowners to sell to whomever.

Critically acclaimed author Kathryn Casey delivers a riveting account of the brutal murders of young women in the I-45/Texas Killing Fields
Over a three-decade span, more than twenty women—many teenagers—died mysteriously in the small towns bordering Interstate 45, a fifty-mile stretch of highway running from Houston to Galveston. The victims were strangled, shot, or savagely beaten. Six met their demise in pairs. They had one thing in common: being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The day she vanished, Colette Wilson waited for her mother after band practice. Best friends Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson loved to surf and were last seen hitchhiking. Laura Kate Smither dreamed of becoming a ballerina and disappeared just weeks before her thirteenth birthday.
In this harrowing true crime exposition, award-winning journalist Kathryn Casey tracks these tragic cases, investigates the evidence, interviews the suspects, and pulls back the cloak of secrecy in search of elusive answers.

Together, we can bridge 'gaps' and build 'hedges' here on earth from the heavenly dimension. Join us in an effort to do more than talk about problems or pretend they don't exist! Jesus is still the answer to the pressing conditions and critical world affairs we all face - so lets 'BE' His Body!
Specific Episode: The Commission is Greater than the Committed Part 3
In this episode, Rocky takes another look at the scope of the Commission Jesus Called His followers to fulfill. We are first called BY the Lord, then TO the Lord and finally FOR the Lord. His "Great Commission" encompasses all those elements - which is why He entrusts His own Name to the Church. Rocky makes the case for committing to what has been committed to you. As great as Jesus is, its the least we can do!
We have two options as we look around and see the darkness overwhelming our nation. We can sit back and wait for destruction or we can rise up and confront the darkness. If we decide to stand, and having done all to stand, we must contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints. If we choose this day to serve the Lord our God, we must submit ourselves unto His way, His methods and His agency. This battle cannot be won if we continue to fight according the commnadments and traditions of men. To continue this work of the flesh will only aid our enemies in the destruction of the Church, the family and our nation.
In this episode of Standing Firm, we will discuss where to begin in this call for reformation. Tune in this Friday at 12:00 pm eastern time as we call the saints of God to man their battle stations.
We will also announce a new project from Covenant Commission and Reformed Church of the Holy Trinity. Coming this October — RP15. For more information visit www.reformedconference.com
