DeSantis Asks Capitol Officials to Replace Confederate General Statue

first_imgFlorida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday asked U.S. Capitol officials to remove a statue of a Confederate general that has been part of the state’s display for nearly 100 years.DeSantis’ letter to the Capitol’s architect seeks to replace Edmund Kirby Smith’s statue with another honoring educator and civil rights pioneer Mary McLeod Bethune. It reads, “Dr. McLeod Bethune’s statue will represent the best of who we are as Floridians to visitors from around the world in our nation’s Capitol. Her legacy endures and will continue to inspire future generations.”The McLeod Bethune statue is expected to be on display in 2020.The Florida Legislature approved the statue switch last year. Soon after, the Lake County Historical Society agreed to take the Smith statue upon its removal from the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall Collection.McLeod Bethune will be the first black American to be honored in the Statuary Hall Collection, which includes two representatives from each of the 50 states.Smith was among 12 statues of former Confederate soldiers or politicians in the hall. His statue has been there since 1922.Efforts to replace it started following the shootings of nine people in 2015 at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, by a white supremacist. A reevaluation of Confederate memorials around the country has taken place since then.In 2016, lawmakers approved replacing the Smith statue and organized a panel to recommend a replacement.Bethune was one of three famous Floridians, with the others being environmental author Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Publix founder George Jenkins, that were recommended to the 2017 Legislature.Bethune emerged as the panel’s choice last year.last_img read more

Quips shut down Washington in showdown of undefeated AA teams

first_imgAliquippa (13-0) Head Coach Mike Zmijanac doesn’t keep track of career milestones. He admitted as much prior to the start of the WPIAL Championship Trophy presentation ceremony.The pleasant and unseasonably warm temperatures that gave the east coast a feeling of summer in late November might have caused some Washington (12-1) players to believe that they really had a chance to upset the Quips. ELUDES DEFENDER—Terry Swanson of Aliquippa eludes a Washington defender in the Quips 34-7 win, Swanson rushed for 206 yards. The WPIAL’s leading rusher junior Shai “Shy” McKenzie, entered the game with 2,689 yards and 42 touchdowns, but the Quips held him to only 33 yards on 18 carries. It was Aliquippa’s junior Terry Swanson who stole the show by rushing for 206 yards, including a 60 yards touchdown to lead the Quips to a 34-7 victory.The best–kept secret in football isn’t one anymore, other than perhaps if you see Swanson out of uniform.Swanson and Dravon Henry are the only set of teammates in the WPIAL to have rushed for more than 1,000 yards.Aliquippa won a record 15th WPIAL football championship. The Quips are a Class A school that plays up in classification to Class AA. The two best area teams are Aliquippa and Clairton. It would make for a dream matchup. Will they ever face one another?“We had a deal to play Clairton at the beginning of the 2012 season,” said defensive coach Greg Gill. “But, the WPIAL would not approve of the game. I hope someone can make that game happen and the Bears will find out what Aliquippa is all about.”last_img read more

State Representative Chris Reykdal Takes a Stand on Legislative Pay

first_imgFacebook621Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Washington House DemocratsState Representative Chris Reykdal (D-Tumwater) is donating the difference between his cost of living increase and other state workers to charity.State Representative Chris Reykdal (D-Tumwater) announced that he will donate to charity any cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) provided to Legislators in excess of the COLA provided to teachers, state employees, long-term care workers, and other state collectively bargained agreements.“I deeply respect the individual decision each lawmaker will make regarding their COLA,” Reykdal said. “These are friends and fellow public servants. They often live away from their families and their communities for several months in order to serve in our citizen legislature.“There are 147 passionate and deserving legislators that serve, but speaking only for myself and as a former classroom teacher, I think it is inappropriate to accept any percentage greater than what our teachers, state employees, and other public servants receive for a COLA.”In 1986, the voters of Washington adopted a constitutional amendment taking away the salary setting authority of the Legislature. Instead, The Washington Citizens’ Commission on Salaries for Elected Officials is tasked with setting salaries of legislators, statewide office holders, and judges.The independent commission approved an 11.2% COLA for legislators over two years.“It’s good policy to have a citizens’ commission doing this. Legislators should not set their own salaries,” Reykdal said. “But, after six years of frozen pay for our educators and state employees that choose a life of public service, they should be first in line now that the economy is recovering.”Reykdal will donate the difference between the Legislature’s COLA (expected to be 8% beginning in September) and the COLA provided to teachers, state employees, and other bargaining groups as determined in the final operating budget to the Children’s Fund Charity.“This fund reimburses teachers who spend money out of their own pockets to buy meals, jackets, shoes, glasses, and other necessities for their students,” Reykdal said. “Educators are heroes who deserve substantially more compensation than we currently provide. They should not have to be on our state’s social safety net at the same time.”“At this point we are working hard to get our teachers and public employees a 3% COLA in the first year. If that holds, I will donate the difference, 5% of my legislative salary, to the Children’s Fund Charity. And I will continue to do so in perpetuity until teachers and state employees achieve 11.2% COLAs.”last_img read more
