Pro-Flag Supporters Rally in the South

Pro Confederate flag rallyThe controversy over the Confederate flag hit the streets in the Bay area Friday night. Hundreds of supporters donned the flag in the Drive for Pride from Brandon to Tampa and back.

The group rallying for the stars and bars had a few bumps in the ride. During the route, divers had one accident, got 2 tickets, and met some opposition, while driving home their beliefs.

Supporters decked out more than 300 cars with the Confederate flag, they say as a symbol of their southern pride.

Supreme Court strikes down 'vague' part of career criminal law

supreme courtThe Supreme Court on Friday struck down part of a federal law that is intended to keep people convicted of repeated violent crimes in prison longer.

The court sided with defendant Samuel James Johnson, who pleaded guilty to federal weapons charges in 2012. Johnson was sentenced to 15 years in prison — five more years than he otherwise would have gotten — because of his prior convictions. According to federal authorities, Johnson is a white supremacist who formed the Aryan Liberation Movement. He was arrested in 2012 for taking part in a plan to attack the government, minorities and others, the government said.


A Confederate on every corner

A Confedeerate on every cornerOn the edge of campus at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill stands a statue of a young man. Facing north, he leans slightly forward, grasping a musket. Known by students as “Silent Sam,” he depicts a Confederate soldier, one of dozens of UNC students who signed up to fight for the South during the Civil War. Julian Carr, one such student turned veteran, spoke at the monument’s dedication ceremony in 1913.

“The present generation, I am persuaded, scarcely takes note of what the Confederate soldier meant to the welfare of the Anglo Saxon race during the four years immediately succeeding the war,” he said, “when the facts are, that their courage and steadfastness saved the very life of the Anglo Saxon race in the South.”


Battle over grassland electrical lines looms in Nebraska

Nebraska electric linesDevyn Ballagh never planned to do anything else but keep on ranching.

“When you own something, you take pride in it,” the 29-year-old Ballagh said. “Just knowing that you’re a fifth-generation rancher, and knowing you’re the fifth generation in your family to take care of this land, you feel a lot of responsibility for it.”

To be a Ballagh in the Nebraska Sandhills is to be tied to the land. Devyn’s family has lived and worked on the same property for 130 years, and they have no plans to leave anytime soon. But the land itself could change if one of Nebraska’s electric companies has its way — and that doesn’t sit well with the Ballaghs.
