Man who shot congressman was living in van, called a loner

in

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — The gunman who wounded a top Republican congressman and several others during an early morning baseball practice had apparently been living out a white cargo van for months and was frequently seen working on a computer at a nearby YMCA, where he kept mostly to himself.
James T. Hodgkinson shot House Rep. Steve Scalise on Wednesday before he was fatally shot by police who had been guarding the House majority whip on the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball field, officials said.

Juneteenth remains unique

Time travel to any point in history and try to find a significant amount of time where the average African American did not face some sort of hardship. That would be extremely difficult to do.

Addressing the summer slump

If all goes according to plan, two Lincoln Parish schools will use an alternate calendar school year as early as June 2018 to combat against the “summer slump.”
