Constitution Training Class with Michael Badnarik Saturday August 14

On Saturday, August 14, 2021 the River Cities' Reader is hosting a US Constitution training class taught by my good friend Michael Badnarik. In these current times, more and more people are paying attention to local, state and federal government behavior. And, more and more people are realizing that it is the we the people's responsibility to hold government accountable. Our elected government officials and sworn peace officers have all taken an oath to uphold the US Constitution. How can the people hold its government accountable if they don't know and understand the Constitution? Michael Badnarik's Constitution classes are entertaining and enlightening while one learns the Liberty philosophy and how property rights are to be protected via the Constitution.

Winston Wilson, Number 41, was one cool guy

When my brother and I were youngsters, we nailed a coffee can on the bedroom wall and practiced shooting a small plastic orange pumpkin (our "pretend" basketball) into the can. We also cut off the sleeves to our T-shirts and wrote the number "41" on the front and back with crayons, and wore these as our basketball jerseys. Why, you might ask? Well, we wanted to be just like our favorite player on the 1960-61 Darlington ball team . . . Winston Wilson.

Butch remembers good ol' freshman initiation

Ah yes . . . you made it to high school . . . the big time . . . and now you are a "grown-up teenager." But wait . . . hold on . . . you forgot one little thing. You are not a full-fledged high school student until you go through freshman initiation. That was a fact of life at Darlington High School in the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s. The members of the senior class, the "Masters," drew names from members of the freshman class, who became the "Slaves" for Freshman Initiation Day. Those terms would likely not be politically correct in today's world. Each freshman was then provided with instructions as to what to wear to school that day and what skit or routine he had to perform in front of the entire student body in the gym.

Butch thankful for one of his favorite teachers

My fifth-grade class at Darlington was quite exciting, to say the least. Our teacher lost control of the class early on, so all of the students, including myself, decided we would have a "fun time!" Clay was thrown on the ceiling, spit wads were shot through straws, tacks were placed on seats, rubber bands sailed through the air, and students hid in the cloak room. One boy's thumb was stapled, another boy had a tack stuck in the top of his head, and a very mischievous boy pulled the cord of the wall clock . . . with the clock striking the teacher on the noggin! General mayhem prevailed.
