“The Commitment to “multiculturalism” that has now taken over K-12 education in America has been a godsend for Muslims anxious to use school and textbooks to proselytize for Islam. Worried about appearing insufficiently “tolerant” and “inclusive,” too many public schools and individual teachers have succumbed to an organized campaign by U.S.-based Islamic organizations and their primary benefactor, Saudi Arabia, to […]

This September 13th celebrates the creation of the Fortune Cookie. What a great cookie. A little slip of paper inside of it brings you good luck, a whimsical saying, or a philosophical thought. (we favor good luck…we can use all we can get). It’s pretty clear that the Fortune Cookie did not originate in China. Rather, it was invented in […]

Good morning, it’s Tuesday, September 12, 2017. Six years ago today, as I was driving my youngest brother to Reagan National Airport, the drivers were honking at each other, cutting each other off in traffic, and using bad language as they negotiated the overcrowded roadways around the nation’s capital. In other words, they were doing what many Americans do on […]

Socialism: For Your Benefit — or Theirs?

on September 12, 2019, 6:00 AM / in History, Opinion

By William Jasper Socialism’s dirty secret: It’s not a share-the-wealth scheme, and it’s not enacted for your benefit. It’s a control-your-wealth and control-you scam.

In 2007, In an effort to make the city of Jackson the best it can be, LANA, Lambuth Area Neighborhood Association, started preparing for a long term relationship with the city of Jackson. Scott Parish sent this to me as the City Councilman and I wholly approved of the work he and his staff are proposing. There were sub committees proposed that fall under Government Affairs for LANA. Though Lambuth College’s Public Relations Director and I don’t agree that two of them should be in this category I think they must begin here to be fostered and grown. We can discuss more about that later.
1) CERT
Train and prepare for disaster response.

2) City Code Relations
a) collect resident complaints of property code violations
b) monitor violations and resolved violations
c) report possible violations and resolutions
d) maintain database of property owners
e) maintain database of reported violations

3) Friendship (the Meet and Greet guys)
a) welcome new residents into LANA
b) provide new and existing residents with information of how to become involved with LANA
c) make available and distribute specific information that is additional to the LANA newsletter
d) maintain a working relationship with LANA Communications Committee to improve involvement among LANA residents

4) Community Improvement ( the “I’m glad you are my mayor. What have you done for me lately?” guys)
Some of the projects were here
a) petition for sidewalk repairs and additions
b) petition to have streets blocked that should not be pass through
c) find support for area wide Wi Fi
d) Work with TVA on “green power incentives”
e) petition for additional signage as needed (children playing, stop signs, traffic lights)
f) undertake other large scale projects that would contribute to LANA being a safer, cleaner, more family oriented community.

By 2010 none of these programs were still on the burners of LANA, directorship had changed.
