Since its inception in the early 1980s, the Gulfport Historical Society has yet to appoint a black member to serve on one of its boards.

That’s until last month, when Marissa Stewart-Dix joined eight other members of the Gulfport Historical Society’s board of trustees. GHS operates the Gulfport History Museum and the Gulfport Arts Center soon to reopen.

She is president of the Gulfport Kiwanis Club, creator of the first official June 19 celebration in Gulfport, social worker at Gulfport Elementary, and a transplant to West Virginia.

“Being from West Virginia, a mostly white state, I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time I’ve been a first; it comes naturally to me,” Stewart-Dix said. “I’m used to being in spaces where I’m the only person who looks like me.”

The GAC [2726 54th St. S.] is across Chase Park from the Gulfport History Museum (5301 28th Ave. S.) and will offer art classes, programs and events. Stewart-Dix hopes to steer the center toward programming for Gulfport’s younger generation.


I’m used to being in spaces where I’m the only person who looks like me.


“My flaw is looking through the lens of community for kids,” Stewart-Dix said.

As a board member, Dix looks forward to the potential to provide GAC scholarship opportunities, summer art camps, and long-term foundation programs for children.

“Gulfport Elementary is a Title 1 school, and I see a lot of families that don’t live in Gulfport, but they come here to have fun, they have their birthday parties on the beach…I hope some families from areas like Childs Park will benefit from our programming,” she added.

Stewart-Dix moved to Gulfport in 2017, after visiting GeckoFest.

“I thought to myself, I’ll move here when I retire,” Stewart-Dix said.

Shortly after her visit, she took a permanent trip across the country.

Stewart-Dix holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from West Virginia University and worked in Charleston, West Virginia as a social worker for a housing complex for over 55 years. She may be a busy woman with a bundle of titles, but the Gulfport resident is keen to enjoy her Florida home as much as she can.

“I spend a lot of time on the beach, especially in the summer,” Stewart-Dix said. “I am a certified spin instructor and love spending time with my dog.”

The other eight members of the GAC Board of Directors include Berkeley Grimball, Amanda Hagood, Amanda Hersem, David Kanter, Jim Thaler, Michelle Lee, Cathy Salustri Loper and Nicole Spence. Dix sits on the steering committee to reopen the Arts Center, which has a tentative reopening date this fall. GHS is currently fundraising to prepare for a proper reopening.

Miles Rapoport

In our book, “100% Democracy: The Case for Universal Voting,” EJ Dionne and I argue that voting should be a mandatory civic duty for every American citizen.

Universal suffrage could be enacted at the federal level or, more likely, by states or municipalities. If passed, it would significantly increase voter turnout; make the electorate voting a complete reflection of our population; making government more responsive to everyone; improve the nature of our political campaigns; and lessen our toxic bias, at least to some extent.

Universal suffrage has not been seriously discussed in this country, but it is not a new or radical idea. First, the system is used in 26 democratic countries around the world, including Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Greece, Luxembourg, Peru and Uruguay. Processes and practices vary; Australia is probably the best example for us. Compulsory participation has been in place since 1924, almost 100 years. It is a widely accepted part of the country’s democratic process, and there have been no serious attempts to repeal it.

People also read…

The Australian Electoral Commission – a non-partisan, well-funded and professional agency – is working hard to register voters and conduct vigorous public education about the upcoming elections, as do political parties and civil society organisations. Citizens are well aware of the upcoming elections and their responsibility to vote.

Last December, 96.3% of Australians were registered, and in the 2019 election (figures are yet to be released for the last election in May), 91.9% of registered voters voted. It is important to note that Australians are not required to vote for any candidate; blank ballots and ballots with comments or cartoons, called “donkey ballots”, are acceptable.

After the election, the lists are reviewed and those who do not vote receive a notice asking why. Almost any reason is accepted, but if there is no response from the non-voter after two attempts, a fine of $20 in Australian currency ($15 in the United States) is imposed. Less than 1% of potential voters were fined; requirement is an integral part of civic culture.

And speaking of culture, elections are held on Saturdays and are festive in nature, with “democracy sausage” stands ubiquitous at nearly every polling station.

For another reason, closer to home, that voting as a civic duty isn’t a radical idea, consider jury service. Everyone is required to serve on juries under civic responsibility. This has been the case for over 100 years, and we accept it as entirely reasonable, even though we may wince when the summons comes.

We believe the same reasoning applies to voting: we want, or should want, that the public policies that affect our lives, and the choices of who will be in power to make them, be made by all of us, fully represented. And universal suffrage will bring us that.

There are also other advantages. We think the nature of campaigns would change for the better. Right now, the “currency of the kingdom” in campaigns is to transform your base and, in the worst case scenario, reduce your opposition’s participation.

If everyone is going to vote, then everyone is listening all the time, and parties and campaigns will have to talk to everyone and have to convince a real majority that their ideas are the best. This will help reduce our toxic and growing polarization.

Evidence also shows that in countries where voting is universal, policies that help reduce inequality enjoy stronger government support, and in our view, this would be a significant benefit.

Universal suffrage is an idea that can advance American democracy toward our stated ideals of a fully inclusive democracy. We’re pushing the idea of ​​“100% democracy” as a North Star goal, and we can’t wait to get the conversation started.

Miles Rapoport is co-author, with EJ Dionne, of “100% Democracy: The Case for Universal Voting”. He is a Senior Fellow in American Democracy at the Ash Center at the Harvard Kennedy School. He wrote this for InsideSources.com.

City of Jefferson

Dear Editor,

The murder of 19 helpless children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas is beyond comprehension. It’s fundamentally wrong, and no amount of lamentation against our absolute Second Amendment rights, Mr. Biden, will stop this kind of carnage.

When did school shootings, other mass shootings, or mowing down pedestrians with cars become commonplace? These are phenomena I had never heard of growing up in the late 50s, 60s and 70s.

We had a long gun sitting in the corner of almost every room in our country house. We only had latches on our screen doors and never closed our doors at night. We were taught to respect our parents and our teachers and to respect the use of firearms. Most if not all the children I knew had both parents living with them. And even though some had hard lives, there was a respect for authority. If there were breaches in this regard, there was a consequence quickly applied.

Many teenagers carried their guns on racks in the back window of their vans, and no one was afraid they would use them to kill someone. They would park their trucks on school property without question or suspicion.

Something has changed in our country and our society, and it is not the weapons that have changed. We have pushed prayer and Bible reading out of our schools because a certain ungodly sector of society has found it offensive and has spoken out against such teachings of justice, obedience and responsibility.

The federal government, under President LBJ’s social programs to support single mothers only if they remained single, has been another linchpin in destroying the family and demoralizing society. Fatherless homes are responsible for instability, insecurity and anarchy. The family foundation has been eroded by those who want chaos and violence in our society because lawlessness causes people to look for someone to control and stop the violence. Voila, the one world government!

Who bought the expensive guns and ammunition for Salvador Ramos? What did law enforcement know about the shooter? What prompted him to act on a school where no resource officer was present? False flag in order to push more gun control measures? Evil knows no bounds.

By Alexis Rae Baker

Dear Lexis,

I have a family member who considers herself an activist. She attends political rallies, marches on behalf of those she considers oppressed, and supports the “little guy” in any way she can. I admire her wanting to make the world a better place, and I applaud her attempts to fix what she sees as wrong, but she and I often butt heads.

You see, she believes she has the truth. She believes that her path is the right one and that everyone who lives differently is either dense, stupid or stubborn.

Despite the difficulty of having dinner with her, I love her and want to keep her in my life. No advice?

~ Appalled in Maytown

Dear Dissed,

Continuing with the theme of the month, the answer must have something to do with acceptance and tolerance. These are pretty ironic topics to me because most people who tout acceptance and tolerance are very intolerant of people who disagree with their point of view.

In recent years, many topics have been discussed in the public sector. The most recent trend seems to revolve around abortion. All of these topics, whether racial, sexual, or biological, tend to be trigger points for people on either side of the argument. You have your vehement pro-lifers and your die-hard pro-choicers, for example.

And while I think it’s good to have a healthy discussion about these sensitive topics, we often come to a point where both sides think they’re okay and, as a result, don’t listen to the other side anymore. They become intolerant of the other person’s point of view. This is where the problems start.

People tend to be unshakable in their belief structures, especially when talking about sensitive topics. This is mainly because these topics are so rarely discussed. When people feel insecure, they tend to show their strength. We do this because when we had no answers in the past, we were humiliated (thank you, school and peer pressure). It’s not okay for us to say “I don’t know” or “I’ll have to think about it” at this point, so we all tend to pick a side and then hide behind our shields. In other words, we stop listening.

It’s a dead-end storyline and usually on a topic that doesn’t necessarily impact the people discussing the issue. Choose to be pro, and people will attack you for it. Choose to be against it, people will attack you for it. Choose to abstain, people will attack you for it. And why? Because none of them are sure of the correct answer. Or worse, they think they have the right answer.

This is a problem I have faced many times. Several family members believe they know how I should live my life (I’m sure none of you know what that is). As an entrepreneur, it can be horribly damaging for me to live like everyone else, but that doesn’t stop people from telling me that I’m living my life badly.

If we took this scenario and made it two political groups, you would end up with those who fight for freedom and those who fight for security. Different people would choose sides based on what is most important to them. But can one be free without some form of security? Where can you feel safe if there is no escape or sense of freedom?

In each scenario, the answer we seek almost always lies somewhere between the two extremes. Many people believe that there is only one right path, but from my point of view there are several. There is no “one size fits all” answer that will work for everyone. Part of the beauty of this world is that we differ from each other. We’ll never agree on everything, and we wouldn’t want to either.

There is value in every perspective if you are willing to take the time to seek it out, and only by taking the time to understand the other side do we have a chance to make lasting changes in the world. If you want a more tolerant world (and you want to continue your relationship with your parent), start by acknowledging that someone else has a right to disagree with you and may have information that you do not have.

Dear Editor,

How to watch a society destroy itself:

Again this week, violence raged in a community in America. He has become so regular that we are almost numb to the constant news about him.

For some reason, the shooting of these 19 kids really hit home. Watching the news, my eyes watered. I know that feeling, you say goodbye, thinking you’ll see your kid again later, and poof, they’re gone forever. I’ve also experienced the flip side of expecting a parent to get advice and direction, but they’re no longer part of your life. We are all gonna die; Unfortunately, many people fail to achieve their dreams.

Massacre and destruction of life in Uvalde hit home. I don’t know why, but it occurred to me. The argument that guns don’t kill people is boring like the argument that it makes me sick. I said that when there was a series of reckless terrorist attacks in Europe using trucks, cars or knives, the destruction would have been worse if firearms had been available as they are here.

Let’s examine this argument. Dangerous, mentally ill and disenfranchised people commit these horrors. They need help; first, they have to recognize that they need it, then they have to seek it out, and finally, they have to be able to afford it. This is the central problem; no facilities are available here, and the government does not help its citizens. It is not profitable. Psychiatric hospitals have been closed, raising the critical issue of socialized medicine or affordable alternatives; there isn’t, which means it will continue next week and the week after. That’s not the heart of the matter, it’s just one of the reasons we keep going down this path.

Not only do we live in this violence, but children also kill children, what does this say about our society? The future is being destroyed; if we can’t keep our children safe, there’s nothing left.

Do we need 393 million weapons here? Should we make them as easy to get as a box of cereal? What really struck me was that I heard, “We had just done an active fire exercise; children know what to do. What! It’s part of the school curriculum. Are you serious? No one finds this strange. We are not in a war zone, or maybe we are? The fact that it is part of the education system and considered normal speaks volumes.

How did we come here? Why don’t people parade in the street, as if it were Viet Nam? People and children are dying, and the news cycle will continue until the next incident; when is it enough?

I watch a once great country crumble from within. We are either right or left; more center; the truth is a matter of opinion, not the truth, and let’s not protect our children. The decline of the Great American Empire is upon us; Either we wake up and find a way to fix ourselves, or we continue on this path to become useless. It’s yours. Each of you make a difference or just sit on the sidelines and watch.

Sincerely,

Michael Shane, Malibu

The following contains spoilers for Shadow War: Omega #1, on sale now at DC Comics.

dark crisis is just around the corner and the Grande Noirceur is more than prepared. In Justice League #75, he used the Dark Army, a collection of DC’s vilest villains subservient to his will, to slay Earth’s greatest heroes. As they remained in the dead remains of the ancient multiverse, Black Adam escaped and warned the people of Earth of the impending threat. The remaining heroes believe the dark army is out there, waiting to strike. Unfortunately, Shadow War has just revealed that the Dark Army is already on Earth.


With the end of this crossing between Deathstroke Inc., Batman and robin came the subtle revelation that the dark army had gained a new member – and a powerful one at that. After Talia killed Slade Wilson in the last issue, her Secret Society of Villains used a Lazarus Pit to resurrect him in the final pages of Shadow War: Omega #1 (by Joshua Williamson, Steven Segovia, Mike Henderson, Howard Porter, Hi-Fi and Troy Peteri). However, something went very wrong.

RELATED: [SPOILER] Came Back Bad – What’s Going On With The Lazarus Pit?

The pit turned from the usual bright green to a dark, ominous muck. When Slade emerged, alive, but not fully healed. Moreover, he had changed his mind about prevention dark crisis and instead wanted nothing more than to kill everyone. This situation may be familiar to fans who have followed the various comics paving the way for dark crisis. Darkseid also wanted to prevent this latest catastrophic event, but fell victim to the Great Darkness and became an unwitting part of his Dark Army. All signs point to the same happening here, with Deathstroke being the newest addition to the group.


Although he may seem like the least powerful member of the Dark Army, he is far more valuable than most other members. Thanks to his new position as the self-proclaimed “King of Villains” and the Secret Society of Villains’ loyalty to him, the Great Dark has the entire Society at his disposal. There is no need to send the Dark Army to Earth to eradicate the remaining heroes. The Dark Army is already on Earth and ready to wage all-out war.

This puts the heroes at a disadvantage. They believe the dark army is miles away and they have plenty of time to prepare and regroup. Black Adam knows who was in the Dark Army when he fought him and told everyone, but none of them know about this latest twist. dark crisis is already on their doorstep, and they are about to suffer major casualties from an unexpected attack.


RELATED: Now That Batman’s Shadow War Is Over, What’s Next?

Along with putting an unexpected twist on the upcoming event, Deathstroke and the inclusion of the Secret Society ground the force of evil. Until now, the dark army consisted of heavy hitters and literal cosmic gods. Darkseid, Doomsday, and Ares all turned out to be members. Even members of the Quintessence, including the likes of the Spectre, have been resurrected to serve the purpose of the Great Darkness. So far, the whole conflict has been cosmic. The less powerful Secret Society C-list villains are more of a street-level threat. Thanks to this, the dark army seems like a much more tangible and real threat.


All in all, this surprising twist involving Deathstroke and his Secret Society, who were all out to oppose the Great Darkness, is a great addition to dark crisis. It plays off the main villain’s manipulative ways and shows just how deep the influence of the Great Darkness runs.

Trinity Health Michigan joins
American Cancer Society Get tested Initiative

The national effort seeks to develop
practices to increase screening and reduce cancer disparities

CANTON, Michigan (June 2, 2022) – Trinity Health Michigan announced that it has joined with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to improve lung cancer screening rates as part of the national program Get tested initiative. This is the second year of the initiative and more than 150 facilities across the country are participating to pilot quality improvement processes and interventions to deliver cancer screening appropriately, safely and equitably. .

“Early detection and identification of lung cancer can have a significant impact on a patient’s prognosis and allows us to intervene before a cancer spreads,” said Kumari Adams, MD, medical director of thoracic oncology at Trinity Health St. Joseph. Thank you Ann Arbor. “Many patients have delayed their cancer screenings during the pandemic. We want to make sure they know it’s safe to get tested. Please get screened for lung cancer if you are eligible. It could save your life.

While the world has focused on the fight against COVID-19 for more than two years, cancer has not taken a break. Many Americans continued to suspend preventative health measures, including cancer screenings, resulting in later condition diagnoses. In response, ACS created Get tested Quality improvement projects to support health systems with quality improvement tools and evidence-based interventions to improve testing rates.

“Our partnership with Trinity Health Michigan is critical to addressing significant gaps and delays in cancer screening,” said Kathy Goss, PhD, regional vice president of cancer control at the American Cancer Society. “Ultimately, our goal is to save more lives both by preventing cancer and by detecting cancers earlier when they are easier to treat.”

Success for the Get tested the initiative includes minimizing the effects of the pandemic on breast, cervical, lung and colorectal cancer screening; address disparities and reduce barriers to testing exacerbated by the pandemic; create learning communities to foster the sharing of best practices; and execute sustainable, sustainable and meaningful processes.
