Erma Laws offered inspiration, love

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Ethiopia. As a teacher at Bruce Elementary, and other schools before that, Mrs. Laws had certainly encountered other families in similarly difficult situations. But something about the Abraham family, formerly of Eritrea, tugged at her heart. She taught their son Hani in the second grade, and from there, the Abraham family became her own. "She befriended me and my family, and kind of took us under her wing since we'd just moved to... (The Commercial Appeal)

Heart & Soul: the hyphenated culture of African-American Native-Americans - Open Democracy

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
And thus was New Orleans founded below sea level, on a practical joke perpetrated by scorned women.  Indian women, whom he had first ignored on Mardi Gras Day. Fast-forward some century and a half.  Abraham Lincoln has issued his Emancipation Proclamation, and in doing so has declared the end of slavery.  Knowing that it could be years, or quite possibly never, before the Union troops arrived in New Orleans to enforce the law, thousands of slaves fled from their masters to hide in the swamps surrounding the city. These swamps were inhabited by the same, ever-friendly Indian tribes who had remained happily ensconced on the land even after the arrival of French, then Spanish, then American settlers.  The tribes were more than happy to take in the runaway slaves, help them house and feed themselves, and integrate them into the daily lives of their own people. Jim Gabour invites you to visit his Carnival marching krewe, La société du saint Anne. Jim's New Orleans novel Unimportant People is available via Kindle. And this is where one theory, and the one I feel most likely, originates about the origins of the Mardi Gras Indians.  Because, when a few years later these same slaves re-entered the Union-occupied city that they had once called home, the only form of democracy under which they had personally lived was that of the loose governance of the Indian tribes.  Thus they formed their own gangs/tribes, and consolidated their neighborhoods, rallying around central focal points like bars or grocery stores, as their core. And annually they celebrated their tribe’s survival by costuming, and masking, and fighting each other for territorial expansion, on the one day a year that African-Americans were allowed to wear a mask of any sort:  Mardi Gras Day. Many of the tribes started in Treme, America’s oldest African-American neighborhood. The area received its namesake from one Claude Treme, a model hat maker and real estate developer who migrated from Saugivny in Burgundy, France, and settled in New Orleans in 1783. Treme owned only a small portion of the area that bore his name and was in possession of that for just a decade. But in the 1800s, free persons of color (“gens de couleur”) and eventually those African slaves who either obtained, bought or bargained for their freedom were able to acquire and own property in Treme.  And then in the late 1860s came the freed slaves, and the Indians.  There are hundreds of examples of 18th and early 19th century ownership of large and small land areas in Faubourg Treme by free people of color. The ability to acquire, purchase and own real property during an era when America was still immersed in slavery and its aftereffects was remarkable, and only in New Orleans did this occur with any regularity and consistency. By the late nineteenth century these neighborhoods were flooded with tribes of “Indians”, specifically African-American Native Americans, again all running on the same day between bars, in an annual ritual to establish dominance and territory. Another century passes.  The violence, the carrying of weapons and annual Ash Wednesday Indian mortality lists began to disappear from mid-twentieth century newspaper obituaries.  The Mardi Gras Indians, and we, have arrived at 2012.  Things are different these days.  Now the chiefs try to outdance and outdress one another.   The guns they carry are toys covered in sequins, calling back the memory of the Bad Days as forever gone. Sylvester Francis, the curator of the minuscule Backstreet Cultural Museum, is a self-appointed chronicler of the evolution of the Downtown Indian costume, or “suit”. The Indians now have...

Betty Ligon: One last column and a last tidbit - El Paso Inc.

Sat, Jan 7, 2012
The symphony is in the middle of selecting a new conductor, something I have watched closely since the days of Willam Kirschke, Abraham Chavez, Gurer Aykal and Sarah Ioannides. So it is with deep personal distress that I have had to miss one of the tryout conductors. One will be named to lead the El Paso Symphony Orchestra starting next season. Where will I put interesting tidbits like the one I just received in a Christmas card from our last HP editor Georgiana Vines? She had attended the Knoxville Symphony with Zuill Bailey as soloist. Said she enjoyed a visit with Zuill and his fiancé Nina! That was news to me! She said he was a hit in his concert and that he did an encore on Saturday but that she attended the Friday concert. Well, I just snuck that one in. Time to sign off. Watch for me in the monthly Southwest Senior section. I'll be there writing Back in the Day. Adios. To reach arts columnist Betty Ligon, e-mail, call (915) 833-8750, or send mail to 300 Shadow Mountain, Apt. 1109, El Paso TX 79912-4016. © 2012 El Paso Inc.. All rights reserved.

Norman Krim, Who Championed the Transistor, Dies at 98

Wed, Dec 21, 2011
They were also a precursor to the transistor hearing aid his team later developed. Norman Bernard Krim was born in Manhattan on June 3, 1913, one of four children of Abraham and Ida Krim. His father owned several luncheonettes. By the age of 12, he was tinkering with the refrigerator motor in his home. After graduating from George Washington High School at 16, he was accepted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where in his junior year he built an “electrical brain” that, according to newspaper articles at the time, seemed to be able to make childlike choices, deciding whether it preferred beets or spinach, for example. “He considered it a carnival act,” Mr. Michalak said. Raytheon hired Mr. Krim after his graduation in 1934, at 50 cents an hour. By the time he left the company in 1961, he was vice president of the semiconductor divisions. Mr. Krim’s wife of 52 years, the former Beatrice Barron, died in 1994. Beside his son Robert, he is survived by another son, Arthur, and four grandchildren. Another son, Donald, a leading film distributor, died in May. After leaving Raytheon, Mr. Krim bought two electronics stores in Boston called RadioShack. By the time he sold the business to the Tandy Corporation two years later, it had seven stores; today the chain has about 7,300. Mr. Krim was a marketing consultant to Raytheon and several other companies until 1997. (New York Times)

Albany feels the pain of war - Albany Times Union

Thu, Dec 15, 2011
As 1861 came to a close, the citizens of Albany reflected on a year that had witnessed the political ascension of Abraham Lincoln, the eruption of the Civil War and the defeat of the once-confident Union army at Bull Run and Ball's Bluff. The United States was a nation at war, with scant promise of easy reconciliation. In the damp and dreary camps surrounding the nation's Capitol in Washington, Northern soldiers counted the days until their enlistments expired or did what they could to bolster sagging spirits.

Bert Schneider, Producer of ‘Easy Rider,’ Dies at 78

Tue, Dec 13, 2011
Monkees through a druggy haze. It flopped but is now considered an intriguing period piece. Berton J. Schneider was born on May 5, 1933, the second of three sons of Abraham Schneider, an accountant who later rose to the chairmanship of Columbia Pictures, and the former Ida Briskin. He grew up in New Rochelle, N.Y., and attended Cornell University. Mr. Schneider married four times, divorced three times and was widowed once. The actress Candice Bergen was among the women with whom he was romantically linked. In addition to his daughter and a son, Jeffrey Schneider, both from his first marriage, to the former Judith Feinberg, he is survived by four grandchildren. It was during that early marriage when, working in New York for Columbia, Mr. Schneider, along with Mr. Rafelson, came up with the idea for “The Monkees.” “I was into the American dream,” Mr. Schneider told Peter Biskind, the author of “Easy Riders, Raging Bulls: How the Sex-Drugs-and-Rock ‘n Roll Generation Saved Hollywood,” revealing his less than rebellious early adulthood. “I pushed my political instincts into the background. I wanted a family, career, money, the whole bit.” Then he moved to Los Angeles. (New York Times)

Confederate soldiers remembered by descendants -

Sun, Dec 4, 2011
Sprott contends slavery didn’t become a major issue until the second year of the Civil War, and came after the bloody battle of Antietam in September 1862. “Abraham Lincoln knew that the European powers were on the verge of recognizing the South as a sovereign nation.” He said the issue of slavery helped move the British and French away from recognizing the South. Although the cemeteries of West Texas and the Panhandle have markers for Confederate soldiers who lived to old age after the war, it doesn’t mean they ever forgot their time of combat, or seeing the dead and wounded. The men who fought were not just shadowy figures in a far-off war that never happened. There was real grief, real loss suffered on the battlefield. It is the same for every war, and no one has captured it more vividly than World War II correspondent Ernie Pyle. In his account of the death of Capt. Waskow, he wrote of men who grieved for the loss of a valiant officer. “I was at the foot of the mule trail the night they brought Capt. Waskow’s body down. The moon was nearly full at the time, and you could see far up the trail, and even part way across the valley below ... We went out into the road. Four mules stood there, in the moonlight, in the road where the trail came down off the mountain. The soldiers who led them stood there waiting. ‘This one is Capt. Waskow,’ one of them said quietly ... It was hard to tell officers from men in the half light, for all were bearded and grimy dirty. “The man looked down into the dead captain’s face, and then he spoke directly to him, as though he were alive. He said, ‘I’m sorry, old man.” “Then a soldier came and stood beside the officer, and bent over, and he too spoke to his dead captain, not in a whisper but awfully tenderly, and he said, ‘I sure am sorry, sir.” The Civil War veterans who fought for the South were like that, too. Alonzo J. Aven, who served until he was discharged on May 8, 1865, in Macon, Miss., and later lived in Lubbock County, left an eye-witness account of a death on the battlefield. It is recorded in Dickson’s “Stories on Stone.” “The first battle I was in was at Grenada on the banks of the Yellabusha River. We had only one company, and there were only 50 or 60 of our company, and 400 or 500 Northern soldiers. The battle lasted about an hour with the river between us. We cut the cable to the pontoon bridge while the river was bank full. The Northern soldiers could not cross, hence they retreated.” Aven wrote of a later confrontation, “The next battle was at Succatonchi Bridge in Mississippi where Bill Forrest, a brother of Gen. Forrest, was killed. “I saw Bill Forrest not later than two minutes after he was shot, and saw his brother, Gen. Bedford Forrest, get off his horse on the battlefield and kiss his brother, and then got on his horse and rode away.” The modern-day Sons of the Confederacy now continue the memory of the men before them with a line from “Dixie,” their song of the South: “Old times there are not forgotten.” To comment on this story: • 766-8711 • 766-8706 ...
