50th anniversary d day
As we enjoy the bright days of summer, we should take time to reflect on two important anniversaries. Fifty years ago, this summer, America and the world watched one of the most iconic moments of the Civil Rights Movement unfold. And it was ninety-five years ago that Texas took a large step forward for women. Both anniversaries concern a right we as Texans hold dear: the right to vote, through which we express our desires and priorities as citizens. In 1964, scores of young people, black and white, energized with a spirit of racial justice converged on the state of Mississippi. They had journeyed there to help register African-Americans to vote. That season of heroism and insurmountable determination became known as the Freedom Summer. Only a small fraction of eligible African-Americans in the state were registered.

Memphis, Tennessee, was the perfect home for my father, Paul Peterson, who’d been an Elvis Presley fan ever since age 10, when the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll shook those hips and changed music history with “Heartbreak Hotel” in 1956. But a new job opportunity in Bloomington, Illinois, led him to pack his bags and leave Graceland behind on Aug. 16, 1977. My dad didn’t know his moving day would become a day of musical tragedy. Driving his 1973 Chevy Camaro, he was en route to rent a U-Haul when the first announcements hit the … [Read more...] about The return of the King: Elvis experts weigh in on the 50th anniversary of his ‘Comeback’
Ahmed Elbenni Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 11:00 p.m. UTC Aug 9, 2018 In the 32 years he's served on the Wisconsin State Fair Police's mounted patrol unit, Joe Volz has seen a lot. There was the time Volz and his horse Montana chased a purse snatcher out of the fairgrounds, across Greenfield Avenue and into the alleyways – "he'd go through the backyards; I'd go through the backyards" – until the suspect finally surrendered. Then there were the racially charged mob attacks in 2011. Mostly, though, Volz and Montana, at 19 years the longest serving horse in the unit, have met many, many people. This year is no different. "Can anyone get kicked by one of these things?" one woman asked, gingerly stroking Montana's head. "Yes, they can. I've seen it," Volz affirmed. "People fly. They fly without wings." "You've got a nice job," another woman gushed. "Why is that?" quipped Volz. "I've got to brush him, I've got to feed him … for a … [Read more...] about State Fair’s mounted patrol enjoys 50th anniversary even as it looks to uncertain future
