Groundhog Day gone wrong: Some of the worst moments in the holiday’s history

"There's a pretty good track record of some epic ground. How groundhog day fails. yeah Some of the worst moments in history. Not only for the whistle pig itself. But for its handlers. Pretty controversial moments over the years. It was back on february. second twenty fourteen. You remember this. don't you mayor. Bill de blasio. New york flinched as the handler placed. Chuck in his arms. How much would would with chuck chuck chuck chuck would causing the groundhog to fall to the ground now. The groundhog was actually a female stand in for chuck named charlotte and sadly well passed away several days later. Oh yes but circling the wagons. You had the staten island zoo coming out and saying that it appeared unlikely that the groundhogs death was related to the fall. And that's their story and they're sticking to it now unfortunately back in two thousand sixteen. Stonewall jackson was a groundhog never made to a ceremony on he actually passed away. On the eve of the holiday jackson's death resulted in the cancellation of groundhog day. Ceremonies ending a streak of more than twenty years of predictions at the space farms. Zoo m museum in sussex new jersey and then there was chuck tyson on february. Second of two thousand fifteen. You had mayor jonathan freud. His name of wisconsin. Well let's say. He got a little unwanted attention from jimmy. The groundhog as jimmy chuck tyson. The groundhog bit. The mayor's left ear. that left a mark. Yeah apparently The mayor leaned in to hear jimmy's prediction and got a little nibble instead. Now at first the mayor said there would be an early spring that he was mistaken. I hear too well as jimmy took a chunk out of his ear. Jimmy actually as did punxsutawney phil. This morning predicted six more weeks of winter february. Second two thousand nine. Staten island chuck. Well he bit then mayor michael bloomberg the bite happened just before chuck made his prediction as the mayor reached into the groundhogs cottage. The groundhog has palatial digs and tried to coax him out with some of his favorite sa k s.'s. Can't say i can't say the word because well my little Rudy is sleeping until he hears that word and then he would allow can get very demanding. Apparently chuck's handler swertz said about bloombert's struggle with the rodent while they were trying to lure him out with corn but i guess he was having none of it and then there was twenty sixteen. You had ed the groundhog from turtle back zoo in west orange new jersey. Apparently this large and go up the overslept. And he missed the ceremony. So otis otis. The hedgehog had to fill in apparently the warm weather change to ed's hibernation pattern which caused him to oversleep this according to county officials. So happy groundhog day. Twenty twenty one to which you say. How can you tell. Yeah i hear you. Twenty twenty Groundhog day every day seemingly. So again my suggestion to you this morning. Take it or leave it Why not just flip the script a little bit. Maybe do something a little bit different today. Albeit suggestion is yeah. You want to make sure that you do it

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

Well, size is definitely on your side seating for eight passengers, and so has some cargo space behind that third row seats instead of a V eight. Like a lot of the competitors have it has a twin turbo V six. So maybe a save a little bit more at the gas pump and what kind of Silage, by the way I did about 19.5, 19.8 miles per gallon for my week was expecting a little bit more but not bags. I did do a big chunk of highway driving for the time that I had it. This is gonna cost you. Definitely so big SUVs are not cheap. And if you want one loaded with leather and cooled and he had seats, you're looking at about $70,000. We're talking about one of the bigger vehicles on the road. What are the other positives? Well, definitely. It's very big and very large for families, but it was pretty easy to drive. It didn't quite drive as big That really is especially in the parking lot turned pretty tight and the tighter spaces, But you have to know a little bit wider than other vehicles out there. What piece of technology stood out to you? The most. The radar guided cruise control is one of the better ones on the market. Right now, it's a lot smoother than some of them that so her key and jerky like you get in some others, So it works out very well in the parking system that it has to, so it'll park itself and help you get out of that parking spot, too. It's nice and tight spaces. You would need that tech to get in there comfortably. What's on the Other side of the ledger here, not so great about this expedition all the size. It's very big. If you haven't driven a large vehicle, it takes a little bit of getting used to. Maybe the fuel economy wasn't quite as good as it could have been, And I think it's rain of being like the best large SUV is probably up. There's a new Chevy and GMC coming out, which is the king of the crop. 2021. They're coming out. So I think that Ford needs to get out there and sell and maybe a little bit of a refresh here in the next year or two before the covert recession. We knew that pickup trucks and big vehicles like this. They were selling because gas wasn't that bad. Wasn't that expensive? What's happening now? Is this going to be out of fashion? Well, trucks are selling just a cz. Well as they were before, and I think of a couple of months where they couldn't be making these vehicles they could be in high demand.

"Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Some of those monuments have been toppled by protesters. Others have been taken down now by the city. All this action as well as violent standoffs between police and protesters has been captured by the camera of Regina Boone. She's a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press, a black newspaper in the city. Her parents started in the 19 nineties and she joins us now. Good morning. Hi. Good morning. Thanks for having me Lulu. It's great to have you from your time in and around Richmond these days. What's the mood? It's intense. It has an exhaustive sort of feel to it. But then there's empowerment. There's exhilaration, then mixed, also with anger mixed with determination, so I can't just say one word. It's a mixed bad of emotions. I can say that it's fully alive and ready. These monuments coming down. Could you tell me what that signifies in your view? As a person who was raised in a household with my mom and my dad, Raymond Boone and Jean Boone, who Started the paper that I work for the Richmond free Press. Monuments have always been a part of our conversations since I was a child, growing up the early part of my life in Richmond that they were symbols of hate and symbols of white supremacy. So I've always looked at these statues as being quite evil on DH always heard in my household that they needed to come down. You have been out documenting these protests seeing this moment? Can you tell me about some of the people that you've been photographing and what you've experienced while you've been doing that Sure. I also just want to be clear that it's not just me photographing for our newspaper. I'm doing it along with my colleague Sandra Sellers who's been at the Richmond free Press for more than 20 years, and what we see are people who are angry for feta wanting change right now. Missing Children come out, and we love to photograph Children because we hope that when they see themselves whether it's on social media or in our newspaper that They see where they are in history. And one day later in life, they can see that they were a part of this change. So we're seeing a mixed group of people black white Latino next Asian Americans out on the streets together, and this kind of is a rare scene in Richmond. But I'm meeting people like I met a Richmond public school music teacher, and she had her cello out in front of the Robert E. Lee statue, and she's out there playing this classical music that just springs Chills to your bones, and she has a slide show of words explaining the pain she has felt as a black woman. And so as we see her as I saw her, and I locked her in with my camera I felt her pain. I could identify with it, Richie now Yeah. Is there a different kind of responsibility? Or is there a different Karan's that you look at this through Because you are working for a black newspaper in the city and because you are a black woman? So, Yeah, I definitely think so. I think there is a responsibility that we have as black women document in this movement because you know, oftentimes. Our stories are told by other people. Other people who don't look like us. Other people who are not breathing this story every day. Our narrative is oftentimes controlled by people. Who just don't get it and I get it. Sandra gets it. Our newsroom gets it. This is not a new story for us. People are finally catching up to what my dad was always preaching and always fighting for. You know, we've been saying this all along. It's our history. You return to Richmond from a very impressive career to work at the paper he founded serving the black community. You were gone for 17 years. What is being able to document this mean for you? I mean, it's really personal. You know, some days I'm out there and I'm actually brought to tears because I'm thinking about my father and I'm thinking about What he fought for every day, and I'm thinking how as a child as a teenager, sometimes I didn't fully get his anger. He just wanted a better world for blacks, but for everyone On DH. It breaks my heart that he's not here. But on the other hand, he prepared me for this moment. And I believe there are no coincidences that the timing for me coming thiss was meant to be. And he's what keeps me going. He's what keeps so many in Richmond going, I think because they knew his passion. He taught me everything that I know in terms of How to stand strong and how to document these moments and why it's so important to be on the front lines. Regina Boone is a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press. Thank you very much. Thank you so much..

You could start a right now so let me ask you a question. I'm just going to get to the point here. Okay just get right into it. How do you view the world? Happy People view the world differently than can I say unhappy people. How do you view the world you can have every single day? Go Party or you. Positively person where it's just nothing but positively and it's not working out for you see you think it should be like this but you look at their and it's not that way and that in your every single day if I push more positively in the world is going to be that way and I think that might be true as well too long haul on that one I have to say is a challenge out there right now but but but yeah. It's we have to have that. Are you grow person? Do you do say everything's run. A non optimistic person fee will about negative person. How do you view the world I will tell you this people are generally happy have really rewire themself? Say See the world as it is and I've had this skill set in my brain for a long time and I do believe it's a skill set because I was confused back in the day and I think alert a skill set to see the world for what it is and still Kinda do capacity to see differently to make differently than that. We're longtime a long time ago when I when I decided to come out of high school if you knew me in high school when I grew up in a little town in Manassas Virginia High School called Stonewall Jackson. If you knew me back then you knew that there was one thing that Scott was going to do. He was going to be a big time. Radio Dj that was it was fun. Man Let's have some fun. Listen the radio listen big time radio. Dj guys the DC area big radio station code WPRO. See The goodguys. I call them. I said one day. I'm going to be that good guy. W PG see the change format before. I had the chance to get there but I was. I went onto be good guide other places all over the country. I realized something once it got work in the real world. Man People are pretty unhappy they are. It's like I'd go. So what are you? You're wearing t-shirts you're eating pizza. Give it away t shirts and other people you having a good time talking on the phone and why you unhappy. You don't have a real job. I don't understand this. Look at the sales of the radio stations in all kinds of money. I said why are YOU UNHAPPY? And it took me a few years to get to the point of going. Well I guess some people just that way because I was never that way but it was a shocker. Back in the beginning I so I have to look at the world differently because evidently this is not gonNa go away. Have you noticed that you can move away from people in the world? You can move away from anybody you've ever known he come back ten years later and they're still unhappy or is still putting their unhappiness on you. They may be happy themselves. But they're making you unhappy right but when you find those folks who see the world differently who understand what the world really truly is. They hold a bit of a dual capacity. They can see the world exactly as it is and yet had that place in their mind where they can reframe decide. Let's make this place better. I think it's hard to do. I do pretty naturally these days. It's the only thing I really truly understand. So how do they see the world? It's rose colored glasses right. They went down to the Walmart bottom suburbs at a rose colored glasses in a works. Maybe the amber wins worked. The Blue blockers remember those. I don't think so I think just have a better way. So if you WANNA see the world we're a happy person sees the world and you may already know if you already. Are that kind of person. See if this works for you see if this is what you're already doing if you're not listened closely and this might be a big challenge for you because I'm GonNa tell you you're gonNA get out of bed tomorrow morning so I'm going to do this. I'M GONNA go see the world who a happy person does and it's GonNa be Kinda hard to really have to be committed to it ready first off happy people like you're GonNa be our right now except that life brings problems it does. You're going to get rain yard just when you don't need it. It's going to snow just when you don't want it. Gave you a flat tire right minute. Middle that snowstorm archerd. So it's going to happen when you least expect it. Something's going to happen so happy. People kind of accept that now. I'm going to tell you I don't know that happy. People always go. Whoa look at that a problem. I think they probably go just kind of deal with it at all. I say most everything that we run into our life is self inflicted and it is a privilege it is. I was driving a Porsche through the mountains. One TIME COMING DOWN DENVER INTO DENVER out of a Frisco Colorado racing the airport really cool car and I got a flat tire I was running late and he was about twenty five degrees. I don't know what to do. Started to grow a little bit and then I was looking around with Iraqi balanced. Kinda hard to do that about that time. Construction work on the side of the road came up and said I can help you with that. I couldn't get man. It was drowned. Fancy car is in the mountains the Rocky Mountains Colorado. I was going to go take an airplane. Ride still remember to this day. You saw it a little bit differently. You don't ever to happy. People they recognize. That problems are a privilege just like that driving. The Mountains Porsche comes with being alive. It truly is a privileged one day. You won't have that privilege so life is going to bring a problem and it's a privilege of being alive is why you got that problem. Happy People do get frustrated but they don't give up you see. They realized that while we don't want them and we try to do everything we can. Make sure we don't have problems in our life. Problems are normal. They're going to happen from time to time. Just when you least expect it. Happy People know that they also know that. They need to accept responsibility for solving. Those problems are just hoping they go away. Not just hoping somebody else will take care of it but actually solving those issues this problems that come into your life because they're going to be there anyway and if you had the ability to solve them personally. I believe that's a privilege because a lot of folks don't have that mindset if you literally can say well this is not what anybody else wants to change. Make better I nor do I. I'd rather not but I have the skill set and I had the right attitude. Let me go fix it. Happy People also deal with anything like threads throws at them they do you do to you very much the same. If you're not completely happy in your world but really happy people just say here comes and then they go sleep and they try to sleep the best they can and then they get up and they do it all over again and probably say just like I do. Let's see what happens today.

"I don't know that northern will be able to survive this kind of scandal because it's probably won't be the only thing that comes up. Right. And you're saying it may be a touch point for a lot more questions that reveal other things. Dealing with just this. When you when you look it is not as if doing a bad thing is anyway, mitigated or fixed by how long ago, but different politicians of different ages have talked about growing in Evelyn in certain ways. How bad is it that one thousand nine hundred eighty four too many people does not seem like a time where that photo makes any sense, even though it would be bad in anytime. Yeah. I mean, this is not this is not ancient history. You know, a lot of us were actually alive at this point in the eighties. But you have to remember. And this is I think something that Americans tend to wanna forget, you know, in one thousand nine hundred three nine hundred eighty four the dukes of hazzard was still on had a car called the general Lee that kids were still playing with on the playground. So to a certain extent Northland's behavior really may not have been out of the mainstream for people in the military out of the mainstream for people of his aides at that time that doesn't mean it's appropriate. He can say he's learned his lesson. I don't know that the state of Virginia voters will be that forgiving and more importantly, it's only if this is a one time thing if this opens up a door to discussions about other behavior. He's engaging.

"Over these things should deliberate carefully about what to do with on my suggestion it would be their certain statues such as should be trashed there is no case for having a statue of jefferson davis the incompetent president of the confederacy or roger tawny got two statues in the state of merrill not a confederate but one of the most execrable figures from the history of the civil war and i think you know a roberty lee is is a different proposition and the way i look at it is we want to be clear in this goes to some of the the history of the statute of the statues than that uh and symbols kelly refer to that were not in any way valorising or glorifying or a manta sizing or printing up the cause of the confederacy we don't want to do that we do because this was an american tragedy and they are americans fighting on both sides we do want to memorialize the sacrifice and some cases the valor of the other side that was different desperately mistaken but they're still americans so that's why i will take these statues of li i put them in cemeteries i put them in battlefield i think the city commission in baltimore had a a really a good proposal on the statute they had of stonewall jackson and roberty lee the statute was of their last meeting and chancer bill that statute should go to the chance to reveal a battlefield to me that be entirely appropriate and i do one thing i think trump is completely right about there is a slippery slope here and were so inflamed there such a moral panic over over statues immemorial so you had do have people on the left talking about taking down a commemorations and markers and ways to honor men like george washington and thomas jefferson and and that would be a shame.
