SORT BY Relevancy
SEC. OF STATE John "Vietnam" Kerry has been busy this week, trying to convince members of the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees as well as House Foreign Affairs members why Obama's plan to "halt" Iran's nuclear weapons is a "good deal."
And both leaders in the House and Senate are getting hammered by conservatives for their flaccid responses to issues that matter. As reported by David Limbaugh "While President Obama accelerates his increasingly radical agenda, the GOP, despite its congressional majority, can barely muster an objection, let alone block his momentum."
Tonight - the backstories to those and more with Capitol Hill insider Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst, the first woman to have been elected US Secretary to the Senate.
It’s a special all new Wednesday edition of Red Maryland Radio tonight at 8 PM on the Red Maryland Network.
On tonight’s show:
We'll again try to interview 5th District Congressional Candidate Sam Faddis;
We'll discuss Dan Rodricks and Barry Rasocvar's latest temper tantrums at Governor Hogan on transportation issues;
Is the way we make use the internet making it harder to target voters on the internet? We discuss;
And can "Hipster Christianity" save Christendom? You probably know the answer to that, but we'll talk about it anyway.
All that and more is why you can’t afford to miss an episode of Red Maryland Radio tonight at 8 PM on the Red Maryland Network…….and don’t forget that you can subscribe to all Red Maryland Network programming on iTunes and on Stitcher.
Withrow too late to abstain
Supervisor Terry Withrow is too late to abstain on the vote to support the downtown Modesto community benefit district.
He has already voted by investing $1000 in the NEW CITY CLUB, which is a group that organized and created the community benefit district.
The new city club will have its own boundaries, its own police force, it’s own rules and regulations, and will eventually have access to $1 million a year, in assessments on property owners.
After the district is approved and taxes are collected Withrow’s $1000 contribution will be returned.
Other club members will also have their money returned by taxpayers in the district.
Although the County and the city do not pay taxes on our buildings, they have agreed that they will voluntarily give tax payers money to the new city club.
Public properties will also be allowed to vote for the new city club, giving those in favor of the new city, a 15% head start in the vote.
Property owners are being asked to vote a second ballot because of a “technical error” with the first ballot.
We don’t know what was wrong with the first ballot,, we do know that Chamber of Commerce Pres. Dave Gianelli is making phone calls seeking support for the new city.
Finally, deputy city manager Brent Sinclair was asked for a list of the members of the new city club and their contribution. (INVESTMENTS)
Sinclair claimed that he needed 14 days to provide that information.
Waller County Sheriff officials said they believe Bland died in her cell the morning of July 13, from asphyxiation with a trash bag, three days after she was pulled over for not using her turn signal and then arrested for allegedly assaulting an officer.
The Harris County medical examiner ruled her death a suicide. But Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis said the 28-year-old’s death would be treated “just as it would be a murder investigation.”
“There are many questions that are being raised here in Waller County,” Mathis said. “It needs to be a thorough and exhaustive review.”
Most of those questions and conspiracy theories were dispelled on July 28, when prosecutors released video of Bland walking through the jail and posing for her mugshot during the booking process:
Before the video was released, the strongest evidence was Bland’s voicemail to a Texas friend, LeVaughn Mosley, from her cell. In the voicemail posted by WLS-TV, Bland said, “how did switching lanes with no signal turn into all of this?”
The Washington Nationals dropped the series opener with the Miami Marlins in Miami. Fish starter Jose Fernandez improved to (15-0) in 23 career starts in Miami (an MLB record). The Nats acquired Phillies' closer Jonathan Papelbon before tonight's game... We'll talk about it all.
BBA Live! is the flagship podcast of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance. Listen in as AC Wayne is joined by Ricky Keeler of Yanks Go Yard and District On Deck (Nats). Tonight's guest is Shawn Anderson of the Hall of the Very Good. As always, we'll go around the league and discuss the most interesting matchups and the latest MLB storylines.
Join Rheana Piegols, Michael Handley and our guest Robert Miklos for a full night of progressive politics tonight on Eyes Wide Open! Robert Miklos is a former Democratic member of the Texas House of Representatives, representing District 101 from 2009 to 2011 when Republicans redistricted his residence outside of HD101 in 2011. Robert ran in the 2012 election for his new 107 district, but lost because 107 was specifically gerrymandered to defeat him.
Our topics include: Why do progressives and democrats not vote, particularly for mid-terms? Are they not attract to (or put off by) the Democratic Party's messaging? Is the Democratic Party's issue focus too narrowly targeting "interest group" issues such as abortion, "black lives matter," immigration, LGBT rights, etc. rather than a wide focus which includes all of these issues in A way that unites us? Should the Democratic Party also add progressive-populist income/economic opportunity/equality issues to their platform? Is Bernie Sanders good or bad for attracting more people to vote Democratic in 2016?
The Washington Nationals scored four runs on Atlanta Braves' starter Shelby Miller in the first and cruised to a 6-1 win in the series opener in Turner Field. Jordan Zimmermann put together a dominant outings for the second time in a week against the Nats' NL East rivals.

Today we will interview Becca Cruz and Travis Duncan about the C21 Library in Colorado Spings, Colorado. The recently opened C21 Library expands the definition of what a library is, by sharing items and providing services that go far beyond traditional public libraries. It is a kind of evolving experiment of what a library can be.

IBM toxic pool defies cleanup
TOM WILBER, Special to the Press & Sun-Bulletin 1:37 p.m. EDT April 5, 2015
A remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site where at least 1,500 people still work may take years to find.

The contaminated hot spot lies under an area the size of eight village blocks.
Situated over and near the source area, and blocking access to cleanup, are dozens of buildings.
To date, nearly 70,000 gallons of solvent %u2014 more than 40 tons %u2014 have been pumped from the ground.
ENDICOTT – After 35 years, IBM Corp. contractors have stanched the flow of industrial solvents into a commercial and residential district in the heart of the village, but they have yet to find a solution for the source of the problem at the company's former flagship manufacturing plant.
Officials recently reported that efforts to intercept and remove the subterranean flow of hazardous chemicals coming from the industrial complex — now owned by Huron Real Estate Associates — have been successful. Consequently, health risks to a nearby neighborhood have been eliminated.
Yet they have no remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site, where at least 1,500 people still work. Full story: http://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/local/2015/04/05/ibm-tce-issues/25302109/
