She loved doing that and she loved her dog, Fluffy, but she couldn’t stand a cat rubbin’ on her legs. Mama was real pa’ticlar. She didn’t want to go out to eat and seldom did. She wouldn’t touch a bite of food at family reunions unless she knew who cooked it — and many times if she did know who cooked it.Late in life Mama got a “little ol’ job” working at Green’s Antiques. Her wish was to be a teacher but she didn’t have the opportunity. She would have been a good one.Some days, I would go down to the antique shop and have dinner with her. “Today, we’re going to be pioneer women,” I’d say and set the dinner table at an old plank table. Or “today, we’re going to be high society” and I’d set the table with fine china from the shop.” Those were great dinners together.At the heritage center in Clio last Saturday, I stepped in the room dedicated to Dr. Stroud Jackson and memories of Mama came flooding back. He was Mama’s doctor. His office in Clio was always packed and you’d have to wait all day in hopes of “Miss Ruth” calling you back to see the doctor. I’d beg Mama, “let’s go.” But Mama said all she needed to do was see Dr. Jackson’s face and she’d be better.Mama got sick in May 1994 but Dr. Jackson had died. I kept thinking, if only Mama could see his face … maybe she would get better.To borrow a quote from Lewis Grizzard, “Hug your mama today.” I sure wish I could hug mine. Mama died on January 14, 1995. The next day would have been her birthday. Not a day has gone by since that I haven’t thought about Mama, haven’t spoken her name.Mama had a way of saying things, doing things that ingrained her in my memory forever.

Her favorite Bible verse was “spared the rod and spoil the child” and she didn’t spare the rod or the keen switch that lived on top of our refrigerator.Mama’s yeast rolls, her banana puddin’ and her sweet potato custard top anything I’ve ever eaten. I cherish the days when she would call me and say she’d cooked a pot of dumplin’s. We would sit at the kitchen table, eat dumplin’s and chicken livers and watch “As the World Turns.” Some of the most special times in my life were spent in the kitchen with Mama. She would wash and I would dry.  She never had a dishwasher. Neither have I. Something magical happens when one washes and one dries. By The Penny Hoarder Next UpMy first memory of Mama is of her singing in the kitchen in the early morning hours – “What a friend we have in Jesus …” Then, I would hear her teakettle whistle and smell the coffee as she poured it in “her” cup.And, all those Saturday nights I sat at her knees playing paper dolls while we listened to the Grand Ol’ Opry from the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. Many nights, Mama and I would walk up to the school auditorium to the all-night singing. The Happy Rhythm Boys and the Tadlocks were our favorites. We’d clap until our hands stung but we never got tired of listening.

Alleged Charlottesville car attacker may claim self-defense, lawyer suggests

first_imgAlbemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail(CHARLOTESVILLE, Va.) — The man who faces charges for ramming his car into a crowd during the infamous white nationalist rally that rocked Charlottesville in 2017 may claim that he did so in self-defense.Attorney John Hill told the jury pool that evidence will show James Alex Fields “thought he was acting in self-defense.”The revelation came as lawyers in Virginia are working to pick the jury that will hear the case against Fields, who faces a first-degree murder charge for killing counter-protester Heather Heyer in the incident. He also faces eight other charges relating to injuries and one relating to fleeing the scene of an accident.The 10 charges he is facing in this upcoming trial in the Charlottesville City Circuit Court are separate from the 30 federal charges he faces that relate to hate crimes. One of those federal charges is eligible for the death penalty.Fields, 21, entered a not guilty plea to the federal charges in August. Attempts by ABC News to reach Fields’ attorney were not immediately successful.The Charlottesville City Circuit Court has blocked off until Wednesday to complete jury selection and the trial can begin as soon as the jury is picked, according to Brian Wheeler, a spokesperson for the City of Charlottesville.Local newspaper The Daily Progress reports that there are 360 people in the pool of potential jurors — which it describes as the largest in recent memory.When the charges were announced, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that the federal indictments “should send a clear message to every would-be criminal in America that we aggressively prosecute violent crimes of hate that threaten the core principles of our nation.”In the case description by the U.S. Attorney’s office of the Western District of Virginia, Fields is described as having social media accounts in which he “expressed and promoted his belief that white people are superior to other races and peoples; expressed support of the social and racial policies of Adolf Hitler and Nazi-era Germany, including the Holocaust, and espoused violence against African Americans, Jewish people and members of other racial, ethnic and Religious groups he perceived to be non-white.”According to the federal indictment unsealed in late June, Fields drove from his home in Ohio to attend the “Unite the Right” rally at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, which featured white supremacist leaders, and that he joined in “chants promoting or expressing white supremacist and other anti-Semitic and racist views.”After local authorities declared the rally an “unlawful assembly” and dispersed participants, Fields, according to the indictment, returned to his car and drove to where the counter-demonstration was occurring on Fourth Street in downtown Charlottesville. Protesters were chanting and carrying signs promoting equality and denouncing racial and other forms of discrimination. With no vehicle behind him, Fields slowly reversed his vehicle to the top of a hill, according to the indictment.“Fields then rapidly accelerated, ran through a stop sign and across a raised pedestrian mall, and drove directly into the crowd, striking numerous individuals, killing Heather Heyer, and injuring many others,” the indictment alleges. “Field’s vehicle stopped only when it struck another vehicle … He then rapidly reversed his vehicle and fled the scene.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
