Black Supporter of the Confederate Flag Killed In Car Accident
Anthony Hervey, a black male who was a popular and well-known supporter of the confederate flag was killed in a motor vehicle accident on Sunday.
The Mississippi Highway patrol is investigating the car wreck.
Hervey, 49, was in the Ford Explorer with Arlene Barnum, 60, of Stuart, Okla when the car went off the road and flipped over.
The crash was directly after their departure from the pro-Confederate flag event in Birmingham, Ala.
Hervey, author of “Why I Wave the Confederate Flag, Written by a Black Man, has drawn attention everywhere for his efforts to preserve the confederate flag. He was often seen and pictured wearing the flag or waving it on the Oxford Square.
The surviving passenger, Mrs. Barnum said the accident occurred after Mr. Hervey swerved to avoid another vehicle that had pulled alongside them. The other car, she said, first pulled up on the driver’s side. Mr. Hervey yelled something to the passengers in the other car, she said and then “sped up to get away.”
The car then drove around to the passenger side of the Ford Explorer, Mrs. Barnum said, and the S.U.V. veered into a ditch on the opposite side of the road. When Mr. Hervey steered the Explorer back up on the road, the S.U.V. began spinning and rolled over multiple times before landing on the highway’s right side.
When Barnum tried to talk to Hervey, both fastened with seatbelts, she said he did not respond after the car was done flipping.
After being transported to Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford, she learned Mr. Hervey had died. Mrs. Barnum suffered cuts and a fractured left foot.
Both Hervey and Barnum had relatives who were Confederate soldiers. She stated, ““I don’t like it when black people attack me on this,” she said. “I think it’s an attack on my Southern heritage.”

One of the Two Twin Brothers Accused of Murder is Dismissed
Just about two months has passed since a teenager was brutally beaten and stabbed by two twin brothers in early June.
Trenton Nelson, the victim, was chased down by a North Clinton Ave pawn shop on June 2nd and was stabbed to death. The two who were accused of the murder were Juan Mojena and his twin brother Darvis Mojena. The grand jury indicted them on charges of 2nd degree murder June 15th.
It has been seven weeks since the teen was killed. He was only 16.
Now, one of the teens accused of murdering his classmate has had their murder charges dropped until further notice.
Stacy Kelly, the mother of the victim, was not in court on Monday for the first time since her son’s death.
She predicted that they were going to drop the charges for Juan Mojena.
“It seemed like the lawyer was really trying to push for this, and that they’re only trying to drag this out,” said Kelly.
Kelly and her family are going through a rough time awaiting the justice that deserves to be served for their beloved 16 year old who was killed by his former classmates and friends.
“How do you try to piece your life back together and then have to re-live it all over in January, That’s the hard part,” Kelly said.
The two brothers will remain in jail on no bail and will be back in court August 3rd.

I’m really nervous about starting school this year! I’ve never been out of Rochester and I’m going to school in Louisiana! I’m scared of leaving my family and being on my own. I basically have to start over my whole life! Do you think I should still go?
Dear Fresh Meat,
I know it’s going to be tough leaving your friends and family behind in order for you to exceed in life. Think of it this way though, you’re leaving for a good reason: To better your life, and outgrow the fear of starting brand new.
In life you never know the obstacles you may face at some points, you just have to be prepared. Life doesn’t come with instructions on how your suppose to live it! It’s not going to be easy but, in the end I guarantee you, it will pay off!
With technology now a days, despite being thousands of miles away from home, your family and friends are just a phone call away! Facetime them in the morning or before you go to bed, or even through the day just so you don’t feel like their completely out of their lives. Plus, the experience alone is going to be unimaginable!
The different scenery, the opportunity out there, even the new people you are going to encounter is going to be crazy! Who knows you might even find your soul mate or someone who values the same things in life as you do.
Life is all about taking risks and stepping outside of your comfort zone. Sometimes the best memories in life are the ones that come unexpected, or barely given any thought. You must see the world at every possible angle. You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity and just live with maybe’s or what-ifs the rest of your life. At least if you give it a chance to see the outcome, you can never tell yourself you failed.

Hello Rochester, this is Nurse Bowick. Have we got something to talk about? Oh Yeah! A new study finds women who used certain antidepressant medications could be more likely to have babies born with rare birth defects, such as intestines growing outside of the baby’s body, heart defects, missing parts of the brain and skull. The study indicated increased risks with Paxil and Prozac use. Ladies please don’t stop taking your antidepressant medication before taking a closer look at this study.
Although more women than men get Depression, it is important that both men and women understand how Depression affects the family unit. Depression is a serious medical illness with mood, cognitive, and physical symptoms. It is associated with higher rates of chronic disease, increased health care utilization, and impaired functioning. Women suffering with Depression may have difficulty with her daily life for weeks at a time. She may feel sad most of the time, find no enjoyment in family, friends, hobbies, or have problems working, sleeping, and eating.
The first step to getting the right treatment is to visit a health care or www.health-canada-pharmacy.com/antidepressants.html mental health professional. Typically assessments and lab tests are done to rule out other conditions that may have the same symptoms as depression. A thorough health history completed. The healthcare provider should ask if there is a history of depression in your family. Treatment option may include therapy and medication.
Medications used to treat Depression are called Antidepressants. Over time they may work well. However, these medications can have side effects. If you are pregnant or planning to be pregnant please talk to your healthcare provider about the risks and benefits to you and your baby. Antidepressants may pose a greater risk at certain times during the pregnancy. But not taking your medication could also pose a risk to mom and baby. Each woman’s individual situation should determine whether she can safely take antidepressants while pregnant.
My brother recently started dating one of the girls I hated the most in high school. This chick always had a problem with me and for some odd reason my brother thought it would be a good idea to date her. My brother really seems to like her but when he’s not around she still likes to make slick comments. How should I handle this situation?
Sick of this chick
Dear Sick of this Chick,
That doesn’t seem like a very bright move on your brother’s behalf, but then again boys will be boys. Do you even know what could have caused the conflict between you two? If not I would suggest having a sit down with either just her or both of them just incase things get a little heated between the two of you.
Grab some lunch and try to recall the first instances that put you both in the position you are in now. Understanding each other will be the first step into making things right. First make sure he’s even serious about her before you even confront the problem. “High school drama” is not worth a single breath especially, when the two of you have already graduated. Also if its just a fling, you shouldn’t have to try to fix anything she will be gone in no time. Like you said, if it’s a serious relationship you both are going to have to come to the terms with the fact that she is his significant other and you are his blood family. So neither of you two will be leaving any time soon! Whatever happened in the high school years should be a thing of the past by now, there shouldn’t be a reason you guys can’t resolve the problem.
If she so happens to be nasty and doesn’t want to talk at all don’t worry about it. Keep in mind one day she’s going to want your advice, considering no one knows a guy better than his mother or sister. Now if that’s too much effort and you don’t feel like it is even worth the headache- Kill her with kindness and a smile every time she sees you!
