Raynetta Mobley founded successful braiding salon 12 years ago -

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
You left there with a feeling of being exalted by people who cared about you." Ms. Mobley came from an entrepreneurial family. A sister Drucella runs a hair products business, her brother Milton a barber shop. "Raynetta was a real inspiration to a whole host of young entrepreneurs I would send her way, and use her as an example of what you can accomplish with drive and ambition," said former Deputy Mayor Goliath Davis. • • • Ms. Mobley was born in Barwick, Ga., and moved to St. Petersburg with her family at age 5. She graduated from Gibbs High School, then worked at Allstate Insurance for 25 years. In the mid 1990s, she ran an African-American art gallery, then closed that in 2000 to open Simply Natural. "She started the shop when braiding salons were thriving," Woodard said. Friends thought of her as a counselor. A favorite expression: "Go for it, you can do it." She ran an African booth for the St. Petersburg International Folk Fair, was active in Unity Temple Church and spoke to community groups. Ms. Mobley kept a journal filled with inspiration, said Rosa Newton, her sister. When doctors diagnosed her with late-stage breast cancer in January, she stayed upbeat. As she weakened, even the prospect of death seemed to inspire her. "She would say, 'A lot of people are going to get healed from this,' ...

Rangers rally past Astros with 7-run 6th inning - Lexington Herald Leader

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Andrus had an RBI single in the seventh to make it 8-1. After Lee's two-run single in the eighth, Yorvit Torrealba's added run-scoring grounder in the bottom of the inning. NOTES: Rangers OF Josh Hamilton was back with the team on Sunday but remained out of the lineup while still recuperating from an intestinal virus that required a stay in the hospital. He is expected to play Monday in the first game of the Rangers' three-game series at San Diego, though manager Ron Washington said his status is day-to-day. ... Houston relievers had not allowed an inherited runner to score this season, stranding 16 before Cruz scored in the sixth. ... Houston pitching coach Doug Brocail was ejected in the top of the ninth inning - with his team batting - after charging out of the dugout to argue with home-plate umpire Dale Scott. ... Washington said RHP Neftali Feliz (sprained right elbow) is expected to begin a long-toss routine on Monday. The team will re-evaluate his status after a couple of weeks. ... Washington said the team has not determined how to use the rotation spot filled by rookie Justin Grimm on Saturday, which next comes up on Friday. There are a few options available, including calling up Roy Oswalt from Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers rally but come up short, 11-7 to Rockies - Lexington Herald Leader

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Trying to give the kid the opportunity to be involved in the decision," Tracy said. "He had done very well, and you know something, I gave him that rope and a little bit more. I gave him Josh Hamilton, I gave him Adrian Beltre, I gave him Michael Young, and the inning was still going." Outman allowed five runs and eight hits with three strikeouts and a walk. He threw 92 pitches. Cruz, who had a solo shot an inning earlier off Outman, hit the first pitch from reliever Adam Ottavino over the center field wall for a three-run homer. "I give him Nelson Cruz and he hits the ball in the bullpen off that kid, then personally for me, I've done it wrong," Tracy said. "But I tried to get him that fifth inning, really, really hard." NOTES: Left-hander Matt Harrison, 5-0 with a 1.43 ERA his last six starts, goes for Texas in the finale. Righty Alex White (2-5) starts for Colorado, four days after allowing five earned runs in 3 2-3 innings at Philadelphia. ... Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre was charged with an error in the second on Nelson's hard-hit liner, even though it was obvious that Beltre lost sight of the ball in a background filled with white T-shirts.

Harrison gets 10th win, Rangers beat Rockies 4-2 - Lexington Herald Leader

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Martin made his third start and played his fourth game this season since getting recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on June 15 when Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton was hospitalized with an intestinal virus. Martin signed a $15.5 million, five-year contract in May 2011, and played in eight games for the Rangers over the final month of the regular season. He was hitting .344 in 31 games at Round Rock before getting called up this month. Nelson Cruz had a leadoff walk in the second before No. 9 batter Martin doubled off the right-center field wall. Martin scored on a double by Elvis Andrus, who finished with three hits and walked once. There were two outs again in the third when Martin pulled a two-run triple into the right-field corner for a 4-0 lead. The Rockies have gone 17 games since a starting pitcher won a game for them. They are halfway through the first time through the rotation since manager Jim Tracy's decision a week ago to go to a four-man rotation. Jeremy Guthrie, the starter whose unexpected struggles led to Tracy trying four starters, pitched 3 1-3 scoreless innings in relief of White. NOTES: The Rangers surpassed 1.5 million in attendance with their franchise-record 22nd sellout of the season. ... Texas LHP Derek Holland threw a 48-pitch bullpen session and the team said he could progress to a rehab assignment soon. He has been out nearly three weeks because of shoulder fatigue. ... Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre has one less error and Tigers 2B Chris Nelson has another double. There was a scoring change from Saturday, when Beltre was initially charged with an error after he obviously lost sight of Nelson's hard liner that went into left field. ... Nelson (swollen ankle) didn't play Sunday.

Hillman Curtis, a Pioneer in Web Design, Dies at 51

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Web design. He was beginning to gain wider notice in his last years for his films, including a 2008 series of short documentaries about designers and artists like Milton Glaser, Paula Scher and Stefan Sagmeister, and a 2010 feature-length film, “Ride, Rise, Roar,” chronicling a concert tour by David Byrne and Brian Eno. He once explained his penchant for reinventing himself in an interview. “I originally went to school for creative writing and film,” he said. “I then spent 10 years pursuing music, and, after failing at that, I did various random jobs. I got into design out of desperation — I didn’t want to wait tables or pound nails.” David Hillman Curtis was born on Feb. 24, 1961, in the La Jolla section of San Diego. He and two sisters were raised by his mother and stepfather, Susan and Paul Zimmerman, both high school teachers. As a student at San Francisco State University, Mr. Curtis formed a rock group, later known as the Green Things, which toured for almost a decade and produced one album for MCA Records before disbanding. Mr. Curtis learned about art and design drawing posters and fliers for his band. After it broke up he took night classes in Photoshop, he told interviewers. By then, already in his 30s, he had landed a few part-time design jobs before being hired for a low-level position at Macromedia, where he worked his way up to art director. Besides his wife and mother, Mr. Curtis is survived by a son, Jasper, a daughter, Tess, and his sisters, Madeleine Curtis and Rebecca Curtis-Cassacia. Long after designing his last Web site, Mr. Curtis remained an important presence in the imagination of Web designers. And professional online journals, which referred to him as “the Michael Jordan of Web design” and “the Grandmaster of Flash,” remained fascinated by his decision to give it all up. “It seems like you had it made,” an interviewer said recently on the Web magazine the 99%. “Why did you move on?” Mr. Curtis answered that he had always wanted to make films and had accomplished his goals as a designer. He detailed those goals in a 2002 interview: “The reason for designing new media is simple — to subtly and quietly change the world.” ... (New York Times)

Trip to family cemetery well worth the wait - Richmond Daily News

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
When still a small boy, his parents removed to Lincoln County, Kentucky, and here Joseph grew up, working on his father’s farm. He was married in the month of October, 1829, to Miss Mary Ann Hamilton, daughter of Thomas Hamilton, Esq., now deceased. They became the parents of sixteen children, ten sons and six daughters, fourteen of them, nine sons and five daughters, still survive. In October, 1833, Mr. Pettus left Kentucky and came to Ray County, Missouri, settling one and a half miles southeast of Elkhorn, in the then almost unbroken wilderness, where he had entered three hundred and sixty acres of land. He afterward bought eighty acres more, making in all four hundred and forty acres of rich land. Here he lived until the time of his death, 1857. He was occupied with his business, and took no active part in politics. In religion, both himself and his wife were what have been termed Kellyites. Mr. Pettus’ remains were interred upon his farm. He was successful with his business, because he was industrious and economical. All that he acquired of wealth he made by his own indomitable pluck, perseverance, and unremitting labor. His efforts were accredited their due measure of approbation, and he was greatly respected by his neighbors.”There are many other members of the Pettus family buried here along with several other family names. I have not pieced it all together yet, so we don’t know if they are all related or if the Pettus family was just nice enough to let their neighbors be buried there, too.After a little more research, I found Walter Hamilton Pettus and Sarah E. Pettus who were buried there, but were not listed on the cemetery records. When I looked up their death certificates, their place of burial simply said, “Our Home place” for Sarah and “On Family Farm” for Walter.I found their obituaries in the old newspapers and confirmed they were buried at the Pettus Cemetery.The Richmond Missourian had this report on Aug 14, 1930: “W.H. Pettus, 95, a native of Ray County, passed away at his home near Orrick at 11:15 last night after a long illness. He was born May 18, 1835 at the Pettus homestead near Elkhorn, the son of Joseph and Mary Hamilton Pettus. The father a native of Virginia, entered the tract of 440 acres in 1833. W.H. Pettus’ early life was spent on the farm, and he continued his agriculture pursuit throughout his life. He was united in marriage with Sally Vaughn of Ray County in 1867. One child born to their union, died at the age of eight months. Mr. Pettus is survived by a brother, Marion Pettus of Richmond, and a sister, Mrs. W.N. Meredith of Nashville, Tenn. He was a member of the Richmond lodge No. 57, A.F.& A.M. and was active in the lodge earlier in life. Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock from the home north east of Orrick. Burial will be in the Pettis family Cemetery.”His wife Sally was not as lucky with her obituary. On Dec. 23, 1926, the column “News From Orrick” only gave a short story about her. “Two pioneers of Southwest Ray County passed away Sunday and Monday morning. Andy Dunbar and Mrs. Walt Pettus. Mrs. Pettus had be...
