ST. LOUIS COUNTY - A local theater franchise has canceled plans to show a new documentary about race in St. Louis County. According to Riverfront Times, Wehrenberg Theaters has decided not show the film "Spanish Lake" at local theaters when it's released this year. The film chronicles the decline of the North St. Louis County town, "Spanish Lake," situated just 8 miles from Ferguson, MO. Ferguson is the city currently experiencing daily protest since August 9, 2014 when Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18 year old Michael Brown. Many believe the decline of both Ferguson and "Spanish Lake" are due to redlining by the county government.
The film's Facebook page posted the following statement:
SPANISH LAKE was planned to come back to St. Louis theaters on September 5th. However, Wehrenberg Theatres has decided to cancel the screenings due to the recent developments in Ferguson. We respect their decision and are sensitive to the tensions in the area, but we are disappointed because we believe the message of the film is more important than ever before.
In this second episode, Sacerdotus continues to speak on the decision by the New York St. Patrick's day parade to allow a LGBT group to march in its 2015 parade. The decision is controversial because the LGBT have been banned for decades from marching under their own banner. More is added to this controversy due to the fact that Cardinal Dolan was made the Grand Marshal and he accepted. This brought upon him a lot of criticism by some Catholic bloggers and other Catholic reactionaries.
We journey to the island of St. Vincent to explore ancient places and the history of a proud people few know anything about. Our first stop is to the Botanical Gardens of St. Vincent, the oldest such garden of its type in the Western Hemisphere, and we are joined by historian Dr. Edgar Adams for a look into some of the events and experiences that have defined his life and the history of St. Vincent.
Then we travel to Fort Charlotte where we meet Augustine Sutherland, a decendant of one of St. Vincent's indigeneous ethnic groups, the Garafuna. Fort Charlotte was built by the British (1793-1806), not to defend against a naval attack but as an inland defense against attacks from the Garafuna, Kalinago and the French. This in evidenced by the fact that the cannons of Fort Charlotte face inland. Augustine shares some of the tragic history his ancestors faced here and some of the challenges he faced growing up as a Garafuna on St. Vincent.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not set any such standards, acknowledging that “it is difficult to establish a relationship between a person’s THC blood or plasma concentration and performance impairing effects.” The research that has been done generally shows the effects of marijuana to act as a relaxant. While alcohol has a direct influence on violent behavior, marijuana does not increase the odds of any type of aggression, Several experts said they were surprised by the notation of impairment in the toxicology report because of complicating factors in measuring the drug. It is unclear whether the drug tests were performed on whole blood or plasma, which can produce different results from the same sample. The concentration of the drug in plasma will measure about twice as high as the concentration in whole blood, said Alfred Staubus of the Ohio State University College of Pharmacy.ST Louis Post
Was Mike Brown's autopsy report and Officer Darren Wilson's account of what happened August 9 when he fatally wounded Mike Brown leaked to test the gauge of the Ferguson protesters. Some on social media sites are saying rumors are circulating around Ferguson that Officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted and that is why these leaks are occurring ahead of the formal announcement. Many believe these are attempts to assassinate Mike Brown's character and justify Officer Wilson's actions. With protesters believing Mike Brown was killed execution style, and the grand jury possibly not indicting Officer Darren Wilson, is this the calm before the storm.
We will also look at an Ebola testing lab recently being placed in St. Louis,was this a coincidence or by design to scare the Ferguson protesters away.
