The toast man used to work in politics but now works for the power.

And when you look at how there is now a large, gaping hole In this region of the country. That has been expelled from the major league minor league system. When Major League Baseball announced the reorganization, officials said one of the aims was to cut down on travel times between games and also ensure the facilities are up to date.

Fresh update on "charleston west virginia" discussed on City Lights
"And about seven years ago, I was reading a biography of Julius Erving, who, if you don't know, it's a 70 Sixers. Player, former 76 years player and in it, he recounted a time when he was a young man and had a serious knee injury. And it was in a hip to ankle cast and you could do nothing but lay on the couch and watch television. And one day he sees Elgin Baylor playing and it something it gives him in an epiphany. Really, and he begins to mentally rehearse how he will one day play back the game of basketball, based on The modeling that he sees before him in Elgin Baylor, the this above the rim type of play, and he delights in the artistry and the creativity s So when I'm reading, that is about it for a thank you come. That's interesting. I know. I know a little bit about Bella. Look around a little bit more. So I listen to audio recordings. I watched a lot of videotape. Read books, magazines, older sports magazines and just built up a mountain of information about his early life. And then, of course, his his action in 1959 when he boycotted the game, and Charleston, West Virginia. Protest racial discrimination. So it came along slowly as most of these things do, But it was ah, wonderful, a story that really need to be told for young people. Would you talk about how you used the story of Elgin Baylor's life to correspond with milestones in the civil rights movement? Sure, I mean his action on January 16th 1959, where his Minneapolis Lakers, he was the 1st 1st Year player. He was a rookie NBA player, and in those days, the MBA only had 18. And it was You know, fascinating to imagine the kind of travel lives and they had much much different than today and they didn't really have a big fan base. But it was really the star of the team. But he was turned away at the hotel when they got to West Virginia and also turned away at restaurants and That was enough, he said. You know, I'm they can't just let me out of a cage like an animal to play the game and not treat me like a human being the rest of the time. And this was it was important in the book as I'm writing a text to make sure that it was Clear than other things that off the court outside of that fled Ext. Rosa Parks, the Wichita, Kansas, who counter sit ins and protests. Be desegregation of schools in the South. Um it's important to the young people know the context of what was happening and at the same time and that this You know, this was part of ah, larger movement of athletes and non athletes. But he was really the first pro athlete to stage a boycott. So all the modern day you know, protests and boycotts and kneeling at games that you see today really echoes back to this towel to Baylor sitting out the game in West Virginia. Yeah, Frank. Your dedication in the book reads to all the Children who love basketball as much as I love painting. You are illustrations are wonderful. And I love the picture where Elgin is airborne and part of the text reads. In one smooth move like a plane taking off, he would leap higher entire and higher. Has pulled by some invisible wire. Would you describe the picture you created for that? Wow, the pages describing it is we're talking about the way we have to go back to the crime page. And that is a page of the group of young individuals coming together and they're debating so I would call this the great debate. In this debate, going back and forth about bragging about who's better and Newsday's and who can do that? And who could do this and out of the blue? If you look for the back up, you're back. You see. Tells you he's doing a little cross over and coming up coming up approaching this. This group of draggers and trash talk is you know you have to try to talk trash. You just have to, and so instead of participating He proved them all wrong. It goes over everyone and goes over the gossip. He was over the nation's flies through the air. And he does this wonderful finger roll, and he just drops off gently into the hoop. And you have the background. You have the sun that is back and it's a silly way. He's trying to have a little bit of that basketball hoop in the background, and he's just showing above everyone, and that's just making sure that he and I believe this picture shows that he was different then. Even on the court. You would see in it. You mean that I participated in all that work? You all that back and forth, John. Of course you're gonna do it while you're on the court. But off the court, it doesn't make any sense is to prove who you are. On the court. I think that's what this picture shows. You also have a son behind. Timid it. Has a halo effect, almost like an angel. Oh, yes. Yes, And there's way to use the cinema playing up for that, And I believe it's for the fathers and sons and the people behind us that we're we're walking ahead of what I tapped Palate. We're all working while using what we grew up with from. We always were using our background, our family back on our heritage, not talents that were brought up. My talent came from my mother and my grandfather worked for artists. And so when you put your son in the background says, you're moving forward. We're moving forward, and that's what I feel like It's dust. Beautiful. Throughout the book, We see examples of Elgin Baylor's quiet dignity was he as Humble in real life. Yes, I think he was and is yes, he did. He did not. He liked to have his play. Speak for him. And it wasn't that he couldn't be chatty. I mean, if you read the interviews with his fellow players when they were traveling and whatnot, he was He was very talkative in a storyteller, but you know, on on the court, he preferred to let his play speak for him, and he really a shoud any sort of anyone making a big deal about how he could play and what he could do. I mean, even when you watch the film reels when he's being interviewed after he retired, and they they have. They're interviewing Elgin Baylor as he's watching his own film reels, and they're saying, Wow, look at what you could do. He will just say when Well, you know, they were probably other people do these things, But I don't know. You know, I just that just just what came to me at the time, So he's He's extremely He's very As we say in the book, it was it felt spontaneous to him and he was just a wonderful player, wonderful artist on the court, and I do think he continues to be humble..
Into the Corn
"Was on a local pleasure flight in my belong to cruise air heading from Twin County airport in hills village Virginia to South West Virginia. My friend Daniel Student pilot was in the right seat. I was the pilot in command. I plan to take off from runway one niner and make a large sweeping right turn to return to the airport. I anticipated flight of fifteen to thirty minutes. Maximum approximately five to seven miles from the airport. I was arguing back to the field at about one thousand five hundred or one thousand seven hundred feet. Ag L. in accrues configuration climbing gently. When I felt a sensation similar to driving over a rumble strip on a highway without much discernible noise change. The engine suddenly backed off to idle with a mild shuddering sensation. The propeller continued to windmill. My initial reaction was to raise the nose and verify that the throttle and mixture were forward. They were still in a gentle. Climb as I- decelerated to approximately best glide speed verified the mags on both and then left and then right individually switched field tanks applied carburetor. Heat verify the landing gear and flaps full up and re trimmed the nose judge the distance to the airport boundary and stated that we needed to have a fielder to picked out in case. The glide. Didn't look good after we stabilized. I quickly determined that we were not within a glide of the airport property and selected a field planted in corn. We had seen just behind the right wing. My reasoning was that was a long ridge of an otherwise very steep hill surrounded by other inhospitable hillsides. And all the pastures had relatively close fences and had visible obstacles rocks included and cattle. I also reason that the corn would help dissipate energy. I briefly experimented with the hand fuel. Pump starter mixture and throttle hoping for at least partial power with zero engine response. Daniel remained calm and very helpful. I initiated a brisk turn to the right which put us on a slightly high angling left base leg. I told Daniel my intentions and once I assured we were clear of the power transmission lines and towers. I confirmed we were configured for a full flap gear up landing and went left to right in the cockpit turning off any potential hazards to our landing including mags. Throttle and mixture fallout master. Switch off. I told Daniel to verify. The cabin door was ajar. At which point he asked about the wheels and I stated it would be an intentional gear up to avoid nosing over just above the corn. I realized my plan to touch down just as the field settled slightly into a bowl. The seaplane technique for water landings and swells was off and I actually went into the corn tassels seconds past that point dragging the tail the descent through the approximately six foot high corn was very noisy and short lived as it provided rapid deceleration as anticipated and we impacted knows high wings level very firmly and stopped almost immediately. Skewing about thirty to forty degrees left just as we stopped even with my experience. Flying from aircraft carriers that touchdown and deceleration is at least tied for the most violent arrest. Moment I have experienced my inertial real lap belts and shoulder harnesses. Were wonderful as soon as we stop moving. I checked on Daniel and told him firmly to get out of the airplane. He did so eagerly as he exited. I handed possibly through the first aid kit at him and followed immediately once clear. We tried to confirm that neither of US was hurt. We remain somewhat away from the aircraft and then got closer to inspect it. I did not see or smell fuel oil. Smoke or flame and so from the wing. I confirm that I had the airplane and IT systems turned off and looked for my cell phone. It was later found in the corn stubble. About twelve feet from the cockpit. Apparently having broken free of its Yo colder an exited through the lower right corner of the windshield we set out through the corn downhill. In the general direction of the nearest road. I estimate are not so straight path to the first cattle fence and subsequently cow path to have covered what is actually only about one quarter mile while walking we both called family members to inform them of our experience and that we were okay. I also arrange to have picked up roadside. We encountered the landowner at the bottom of the hill and informed him how we got there he had no idea. I called the Flight Standards District Office at Charleston West Virginia and left a message and then tried to Richmond. Virginia physio with a similar lack of success. My wife then took me to the Galax Virginia hospital because of increasing lower back discomfort while in the waiting room at the emergency room I was successful reporting the event to a flight service station operator at one. Eight hundred W X brief. Who told me that his computer entries were in fact passed into the government system and that I had therefore notified the FAA. We later discovered that the crankshaft had broken cleanly into it. Shut down all the accessories. Fuel pump mags oil pump. The instant the rear third had stopped rotating that put us in a glider with a big speed break in just one or three skipped heartbeats. I don't count the successful outcome of this. Or my previous four aviation bumps in the night to military to civilian as a result of any exceptional pilot skills on my part but gleefully acknowledged that I had many good and thorough civilian and military instructors over the years who hammered the need for constant practice and self instruction into my piloting. The result is that when something goes wrong. There's no need to think about it simply. React to all the training scenarios and execute the sequence of corrective action. You've already created. It's worked well for
