    I started not to comment on this thread, because as a southerner a lot of us feel that everyone else in the country already assumes we are racist because we sound like we do. No joke, as much as I run my mouth I'm hesitant to comment when the discussion turns to race, but reading some of these replies I really feel I need to clear the air on some things... First, and don't take this the wrong way, but a lot of y'all are just ignorant. And yes, Lavender, that includes you. That's not an insult, it's just the truth. How many shades of brown people do y'all have up there? You probably see about as many blacks as I see Amish. You never, EVER, make any remark regarding a black person that could be in any way construed as to be referencing a primate. EVER. End of story. I'm sure being compared to a female dog in heat offends you, and being a man I cannot relate to how that word brings up the years of persecution and degradation of your people, but have you ever seen a black person be called a monkey? In person? I have. Someone with your vocabulary is not capable of that kind of violence. Believe me, I'm as politically incorrect as anyone, but even I will admit some cases are worse than others. Redneck? Seriously? Even if you called me a redneck with the most evil of intent, my response would be "Dayum right you effing Yankee". I think everyone north of VA should be banned from having any input into discussions about race. Y'all like to tell us what we should say, or tell non-white people how they should feel about what we said, but you know what? The majority of "em live down here. Why? Because we're friendly. And it's effing cold up there in February

    Buck Moon My Big Ol' Butt!

    That's right, I haven't had a good in a while, so here we go... Do y'all get this crap up there? Some vapid, skinny, pasty white bubble headed weather girl telling you the name for the current full moon? Seems like it's every month now. Sure, I've heard of the Harvest Moon and a Blue Moon, but the straw that broke the camel's back for me was the Super Blood Wolf Moon a few months back. WTF??? When did this become a thing? When did we come up with some back to nature, touchy feely name for every friggin full moon throughout the year? And last night our local bubblehead says "It's also known as the Thunder Moon because of all the thunderstorms we have in July " WHAT??? What about the thunderstorms in April, May, June, and August you dumb She then goes on to explain how the name comes from the Native Americans. Ok, right, so I'm to believe that each of the over 500 tribes sent a delegate to a meeting somewhere, presumably in a desert with a sufficient supply of peyote, where they took a vote and said "Hmmm, July. Buck Moon", but Whines Like Bi*ch wanted Thunder Moon, so just to shut him up they made it the alternate. My big ol' butt Just keep drinking your Starbucks, driving your hybrids, and finding uses for pot with no THC. Leave the Moon alone

    On the lighter side....

    Good grief!!! Only in Falls Creek , Pa.🙄. So, I pulled into the gas station just a few minutes ago and when I was walking in to pay, I noticed one of our finest officers parked on the side of the building. He was watching this woman who was smoking while pumping gas. I saw her too ...I was thinking this lady is CRAZY!! But anyway, I went inside and all of a sudden I heard a commotion ...I heard somebody screaming. I looked out the door and the woman's arm was on fire!!! She was swinging her arm & running around like crazy!! I saw the officer who had just put the lady on the ground and was putting the fire out with his coffee!! Then, he cuffed her and threw her in the back of his patrol car....Yes, that’s right! The lady who had just caught on fire was getting locked up!!... I was thinking "What kind of person smokes WHILE PUMPING GAS and thinks nothing's gonna happen?!" Just dumb! So being the inquisitive person that I am....I saw the officer standing by my car so I asked him, "What did she do?" He looked me dead in the face and said, “WAVING A FIREARM!” Now, which of my friends actually read this to the end? I'd love to know? Copy, paste, and see who you can get with this joke! Change it to your city though. - Have a Good Day FB 🥰

    Brandi, Deryk, & Faith’s Wedding Day

    I finally got to meet Bon and Spawn of Bon (Brandi) for the Wedding reception on Saturday. I had a good time DJing the reception and I'd like to say thank you to their family for being so kind. I was so glad to be apart of their special day. Their little peanut "Faith" is such an angel. (God Bless Her)

    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    Here is the article that was about Faith and the Daisy Award winner Nikole Kessler. This was when Faith Marie was 3 months old. Yes, I’m late with it. ********************************************************************** We are truly privileged to congratulate our most recent DAISY Foundation winner: Nikole Kessler, RN, of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at PH DuBois. Nikole helped to care for infant Faith Marie Spicher, who was born with Trisomy 18. Many babies born with this chromosomal condition do not live beyond their first few days or weeks of life. Faith, however, grew strong enough in the NICU that she was able to be discharged and go home with her parents. This week, Faith turned 3 months old. We are honored to share the beautiful words of Faith’s mother, Brandi, who describes the experience and how Nikole went above and beyond in caring for Faith during her time in the NICU: “Faith Marie Spicher was born on Jan. 15, 2019. She was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, incompatible with life. We knew that Faith would be cared for at the NICU after she was born due to her diagnosis. What we didn’t know was how much she would be loved and cared for by the staff. Faith was placed on a ventilator by Jan. 17, 2019, due to episodes of apnea, and had more wires, tubes and monitors than could be imagined. It was hard to deal with; it was difficult to see our baby going through so much. But what wasn’t difficult to see was the compassion and love she received from the nurses and also the huge impact that this small life had on them as well as us. We will never forget the NICU nurses and all the memories we had with them. They will always be a part of our family and we are forever grateful for them. Nikole Kessler cared for Faith through the best times and hardest times. She laughed with us, celebrated with us and even cried with us. She was able to look past all the wires and tubes and only saw Faith. You could see a connection growing between the two. She not only took care of Faith as a nurse, she cared for Faith as if she were her own. She wasn’t afraid of Faith’s condition, as a matter of fact she took it on as a challenge; Faith would beat the odds and be her “feisty spice.” She made sure that Faith received the best care and all the snuggles she could give. Nikole walked with us hand in hand through Faith’s entire journey in the NICU. On Jan. 19, 2019, Deryk and I had to make a heartbreaking decision to discontinue the ventilator. We couldn’t have our baby live on a vent for the rest of her days. Nikole stayed with us, even off duty, through that difficult time. She took a turn holding her and cried right with us as we thought Faith’s time here on Earth was over. Nikole even handmade a wooden plaque for this day, “Too Beautiful for Earth, Faith.” As the minutes turned to hours and Faith amazed us all with desire to live, breathing on her own, Nikole shared in our tears as they turned from heartache to tears of joy and hope. The following day, Nikole checked on Faith as soon as she came into the NICU to make sure she made it through the night. She kept us updated through her entire shift and shared in our joy and relief as she continued to report that Faith’s vitals were stable and she was not having any episodes of apnea. Nikole made sure we didn’t miss any special moments. She carried the camera in her pocket and was quick to capture every significant second – the first time we fed our baby through her og tube, her first outfit, first bath. She filled two photo books and ran the printer out of paper just so we had every memory of the beginning and, what we thought, would be the end of Faith’s life. Nikole continued to be there for Faith even on her days off of work. She made the trip into the hospital and spent hours with Faith just to hold her. Finally, the day came when Deryk and I were able to take Faith home and Nikole was there to do her discharge. There wasn’t a dry eye in the NICU, especially Nikole’s. She even escorted Faith out of the hospital just so she could soak up every last moment with her. To this day, Nikole continues to be a part of Faith’s life, keeping up with her and all of her firsts and celebrating with us every time Faith defies the odds. Nikole is more than the NICU nurse that cared for our baby, she is part of our family and we know Nikole will forever be a part of her life as long as Faith is with us on this earth.” Please join us in thanking Nikole. We are so proud of her heartfelt dedication to caring for our littlest patients! Follow the link to read the very touching words Brandi wrote about the other members of Faith’s NICU nursing team as she said she wanted to recognize each person that was there fighting for Faith, caring for her and, most of all, loving her! http://bit.ly/Baby-Faiths-Story

    Mom Beaten Up By Son's Bully

    I saw this on the local news last night and got pi**ed off all over again. To see it down here you know it's a national story now, and of course they are trying to tie it to Trump. I'm so sick of people finding scapegoats for their own fears and prejudices. I'm from the south, God knows I've seen some backwards ass racists down here, but I've read on this very board "blacks don't belong in punxsy ". I'm not pointing a finger at you guys, this problem is everywhere. 7th graders don't learn this behavior from Trump, the MSM, or any other demon you want to blame it on. They learn it from their family, their friends, their community. I'm just as against illegal immigration as any of you, but when kids see ANY Mexican and say they belong behind a wall, they learned that attitude somewhere. Most of these Mexicans are here legally, all of the ones I know are, and you know what? They work harder than us, they have stronger family values than us, they pray harder than us, and more of them can pass a drug test. I've known 50 or so Mexicans over the last 25 years, and have only known one who was divorced. I'm not saying they are better than us, but I am sick to death of the prejudice, and I'm sick to death of the media blaming it on "the current administration" Look in the mirror

    And people think that the reason the DuBois area will never move forward or progress is because of water rates and consolidation. It's disappointing to read some of these comments.

    I remember when my son was in 7th grade a black kid called him a cracker in gym class because he accidently got him with the volleyball. My son responded with "ritz or gold fish?" He didn't get offended or throw a fit or report it to anyone. Just kind of made a jab back at him. I dont think he called him a cracker again.

The guys all stopped what they were doing & watched the trucker get out of the truck. They were all ready to run over & unload the truck ..... till the trucker turned around!! He had a beard!! 😂🤣😂 Really nice guy!!

    I guess some would call it Blonde it was actually Honey Mix. Which is a light Honey Blonde, Platinum Blonde and a Light Ash Blonde Mix. I think I rocked that wig. Although I broke a heel running from Johnny Law and I have to see the doctor and have an Ultrasound on my left testicle. Darn things were just bouncing around there as I was running. Being old I think I kicked that left one with my knee a few times as it hangs a bit lower than the right. I am thankful for ice packs though. Boy the lengths I will go for a joke. I even googled wig colors

    Grandpa's Living In the Backyard

    I love the idea of these little houses. It's coming back in style! Heck, the Amish have done it for years with their older family members. It's called a Dawdi house. Lord willing, of course, but when I get older, I would love to think of living in my own smaller house so that I could still be on my own with my family nearby. Perfect solution. I believe Sandy Township recently approved this for a family. Hopefully we will have many more if this works out.

    Here is a different spin from the Chicago Sun Times: Gov. Pritzker’s wrong to give Confederate Railroad the boot Government should pick its battles wisely and rarely when curbing free expression, and it was the Pritzker administration that booked the band in the first place. By CST Editorial Board Jul 10, 2019, 3:15pm CDT Yes, the Confederate flag offends us, as it should offend all Americans who understand its full symbolism. Maybe the flag is about Southern pride. Maybe it’s about that good ol’ rebel spirit. But it is every bit or more about the South’s historic defense of slavery, Jim Crow segregation, white citizens’ councils, the Ku Klux Klan, American fascism, white supremacy, white nationalism and everyday off-the-rack bigotry. Try as they might, apologists for the flag will never get around it. As Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Thursday, “The Confederate flag is a symbol of not just slavery, but of treason against the United States.” Why, then, are we writing today to criticize Pritzker for banning Confederate Railroad, a country rock band that uses the Confederate flag, from performing at a state fair? Because government should pick its battles wisely and rarely when curbing free expression, even free expression paid for by the taxpayer. And it was the Pritzker administration that booked Confederate Railroad in the first place. The Illinois Department of Agriculture, working with its new local fair manager, Josh Gross, announced the entire lineup for the Du Quoin State Fair weeks ago — on June 17. It scheduled Confederate Railroad to play on a Tuesday, Aug. 27. The time to take a pass on a band like Confederate Railroad was back then. It would have been entirely reasonable for state officials to decline to book the band just because of the art on the band’s album cover, which includes a small Confederate flag. We wish they had. But for Pritzker to reach down from his heights now, after all the contracts have been signed, and cancel the booking for this one band strikes us as excessive government involvement in matters of free expression. It is not strictly censorship. Nobody is saying Confederate Railroad can’t play wherever it can land a gig. The state’s just not going to book the band. But it feels to us like a poorly thought-out violation of the spirit of free speech, our nation’s most sacred principle, given that the band was hired before it was given the boot. Government, at all levels, must always take the broadest and most tolerant stance with respect to free expression. We would have preferred that the Department of Agriculture had not booked Confederate Railroad to begin with. We also would have understood had the department chosen not to book Snoop Dogg to perform at the state fair in Springfield on Aug. 16. Many Illinois residents are offended by the cover art of Snoop Dogg’s latest album — a depiction of the rapper standing over a corpse toe-tagged with President Donald Trump’s name. Confederate Railroad was booked. A contract was signed. Out of an abundance of respect for the spirit of free expression, Pritzker should have let the band play. And let’s hope the governor’s administration thinks it all through more carefully when booking state fair acts next year. Send letters to letters@suntimes.com.

    Before this turns into the usual "my side good, your side bad" thread, yes, kids watch TV, yes, certain channels are biased. News stories didn't beat that woman up. I don't want to hear that any more than I wanted to hear Obama was to blame for Ferguson.

    This saddens me. I think she was a good woman and really stood by her man and family. She was a bit eccentric, but I admire her for being herself. There is a lot to be said for that. I also feel she was a true Christian woman. She had her faults like all of us, but I think she truly lived her faith. From what I observed, any how.

    My son is biracial, he's 16 years old. Multiple times over the last few days he has been called a Ni**er while doing nothing but walking down the street (DuBois). The comments were yelled out car windows by ADULTS!! While it does not bother him, the fact that he has to endure that makes me sick. You have no idea how freely that word is also thrown around by kids his age. Who teaches their children to be so vial? Don't tell me my kid just needs to throw punches because that's how things were handled back in the day. You see he's far from a "sissy" and has no problem defending himself but the local police consider that assault. I hear so much talk about how awful kids are these days.....with what I see from adults lately, it's no wonder. And don't tell me it's just words and he should deal with it because let me tell you something if I ever am with him when something like that gets said...God have mercy on that person's soul cause I will gladly take an assault charge to knock such vial and disgusting words back into someone's mouth.
