Peter Dreier: Sanford and Its Sons: From Jackie Robinson to Trayvon Martin
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
I don't know if any of the reporters covering George Zimmerman's trial saw the film 42, but if they had they would have learned something about the racist history of Sanford, Florida, where a six-person jury (five of them white) yesterday acquitted Zimmerman of the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. The film, which came out earlier this year to coincide with the opening of the Major League Baseball season, recounts Jackie Robinson's experience breaking the sport's color barrier. Robinson's brief visit to Sanford is one of the film's most dramatic moments. After signing Robinson to a contract, Brooklyn Dodgers president Branch Rickey assigned him to Montreal Royals, its top minor league team, for the 1946 season. Rickey figured that Robinson would face less overt racism in Montreal than in most other minor league cities. But he also knew that the Dodgers and the Royals had their spring training camp in Daytona Beach and their pre-training camp (wher ...

Consumer: Low cost fun for all this summer if you just plan
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
School is out and consumer reporter Sophie Hazan looks at how you can entertain the family on a budget. it was not what any of us wanted to hear when news broke that we had nose-dived as a nation into a ‘double dip’ recession. But today, the reality is going to hit home for thousands of families in charge of the kids as day one of the long summer break begins. In a bid to ease the burden, Consumerwatch has taken a closer look at what’s on in and around Yorkshire for FREE. And we have spoken to Natasha Rachel Smith, consumer affairs editor at TopCashBack – an online discount website that earns you money each time you use it to buy deals.

Guiseley police worker jailed for letting mum, 82, starve to death
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
A CIVILIAN police worker from Leeds who allowed her mother to starve to death in “almost indescribable squalor” has been jailed for 30 months. Angela Pearson, 53, of Guiseley, was convicted by a jury of the manslaughter of Eileen Pearson, 82, by gross negligence. The West Yorkshire Police employee failed to provide adequate food, nourishment and care to her mother and failed to summon timely medical help before she drove her dead body to hospital last May. Bed-ridden Mrs Pearson died from a combination of malnutrition and infected bed sores, Preston Crown Court heard. When police visited their home in Fairway they found the property was uninhabitable and in extreme squalor. The rooms were piled high with a mixture of discarded possessions, soiled clothes, soiled nappies, food waste, bottles filed with urine, human waste and decaying rubbish. Pearson argued that she had “no idea” her mother was going to die and she had not breached her duty of care but a jury ruled otherwise. Sen ...

Tom Healy: Fulbright Scholars: Sharing the World Through Storytelling
Huffington Post - over 4 years
This past spring I was in a place called Chellah, in the hills on the outskirts of the city of Rabat, overlooking the Bou Regreg River, which opens out into the Atlantic Ocean in the distance. Chellah is the site of an ancient Roman port town called Sala Colonia, founded in about the year 40. The Romans abandoned the city less than 100 years later and then, sometime in the 14th century, a Moroccan sultan built on top of it. He built a mosque and a huge minaret, a school and royal tombs. But what you actually notice first about Chellah are its inhabitants. Hundreds of cats wander the paths and lie in the shade. And then there's the air force: huge storks perched in gigantic nests of sticks and branches that they weave together on the top of the minaret and telephone poles and the Roman columns. It's a site Dr. Seuss or Tim Burton or the writers of One Thousand and One Nights might have conjured up. It's definitely a place for storytelling. I'll never forget walking dow ...

Judge: Missouri man twice convicted in neighbor's 1990 slaying victim of 'manifest injustice'
Fox News - almost 5 years
A Missouri judge ruled Tuesday that a man twice convicted in the 1990 slaying of a local farm wife was the victim of "a manifest injustice" and that no jury would have convicted him had investigators done their jobs. Boone County Circuit Judge Gary Oxenhandler, who was appointed by the Missouri Supreme Court to review the case, said prosecutors failed to turn over key evidence to Mark Woodworth's lawyers and overlooked numerous conflicts of interest among prosecutors, a judge and law enforcement. Woodworth was 16 when his neighbor, Cathy Robertson, was fatally shot as she slept in her rural home in Chillicothe, a farming community 90 miles north of Kansas City. He was charged nearly three years later, with prosecutors basing their case on a single fingerprint found on an ammunition box inside Robertson's shed and a common manufacturing defect in his father's handgun. Woodworth, whose father farmed with Robertson's husband, was sentenced t ...

    In late November, she rode a float in the 2007 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, following previous Miss USA titleholders since Susie Castillo in 2003.
    More Details Hide Details
    In August 2007, Mexican tourism officials apologized for the behavior of the audience and said that Smith is welcome back in Mexico any time.
    More Details Hide Details During her first week as Miss USA, Smith made a number of media appearances, such as The Today Show and Late Show with David Letterman, where she presented a "top ten" list entitled "Top Ten Things I Can Say Now That I'm Miss USA". She was also a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show where she talked about her experience working as an intern. As Miss USA, Smith twice had the opportunity to ring the opening bell at the American Stock Exchange, first on April 24, and then on June 7 with Miss Universe Riyo Mori. In early June, Smith travelled to Kenya to volunteer for Project Sunshine. On returning to the United States, she was present at an event at the White House celebrating Black Music month, where she introduced President George W. Bush to the audience. She then travelled to Chicago to attend the CONCACAF Gold Cup final between Mexico and the United States, which led to further discussion in the media over the treatment she received from the Mexican audience at Miss Universe.
    As Miss USA, Smith represented the United States in the Miss Universe 2007 pageant held in Mexico City, Mexico, on May 28, 2007.
    More Details Hide Details She arrived in Mexico on May 1, and along with the 77 other delegates participated in weeks of events, rehearsals and preliminary competitions prior to the final telecast. On May 20, Smith competed in the national costume competition dressed as Elvis Presley, a costume which reflected her home state of Tennessee. During her appearance she was loudly booed by the Mexican crowd, who were seen giving Smith the thumbs-down sign. After competing in the preliminary competition, Smith made the top 15 during the pageant finals, where she placed sixth in swimsuit and advanced to the top ten. During the evening gown competition, Smith slipped and fell down before quickly getting back onto her feet. She was able to remain composed as she finished her walk, and placed fifth out of the ten delegates despite the fall. Smith was again booed by the Mexican crowd after she was announced as part of the top five while the local representative from Mexico was not. This continued as Smith answered her final question, finishing by thanking the crowd in Spanish, which finally made the crowd cheer. She eventually placed fourth runner-up, equaling the placement of her predecessor Tara Conner at Miss Universe 2006. The booing and jeering during the pageant was a repeat of a similar incident during Miss Universe 1993, also held in Mexico City, when Miss USA Kenya Moore was loudly booed. The audience reaction was attributed to political issues between the two nations.
