Bobby Rush. Is this the same Bobby Rush that I remember from the 1960's ?

Bobby Rush Is an American Politician and represents what Americans despise most in our politicians.

Bobby Rush is a Democratic Member of Congress who represents the First District of Illinois, which includes roughly half of Chicago's South Side. Nearly two-thirds of the residents of this district are African American, as is Rush.

Member of the Progressive Caucus In 1968, went AWOL from the U.S. Army .

In 1969, served six months in jail for an illegal weapons conviction. Advocates reparations for African Americans. Co-founded the gangster-ridden Illinois branch of the Black Panther Party (BPP), renowned for intimidating local business people into making "donations" to Panther "charities.

In 1992 the socialist magazine In These Times would praise Rush, who was, by then, a fledgling congressional candidate, as someone who "has continued to support progressive policies and has never disavowed his Panther past."

We need new politicians D&R

In my own opinion, these little insights on life in Maybell demonstrate the pride this author has for the community. Sort of makes my feel like I was actually there .

Keep up the good work Kathy.....

GreyStone 5 years, 10 months ago on Water plant fix on the way

Where did this city find an engineering outfit that hade no idea that this river has a high and low level? This seems to be a very basic, simple concept: then the mayor seems to think these same engineering ding bats know more about the plant than the people who actually run the darn thing. Are these engineers aware that it gets cold and snows in Craig in the winter ? I Wonder. Looks like this water plant will produce more headaches for this city in the future.

GreyStone 5 years, 11 months ago on City, DOW discuss controlling Craig's deer population

What will the black bear living at Loudy Simpson eat if we move the deer out of town? There are several mountain lions that might move to town for the fat Craig deer. My hunting dogs have picked up lion and bear track South of Craig, along the river and North from Black Mountain back toward town. This bear or one of these cats will eventually make a kill in town: then listen to the whining.

slipknot ,. What a novel way of thinking: looking out for our pets by keeping them out of the mouth of predators. New comers to the West might not know that a Coyote , Fox, Mountain Lion, Skunk and Bob Cat, will take a wandering pet for Food.
