really does matter what you put into your body including music, and this
music is something that is absolutely beneficial to the soul. I was absolutely astonished and so very pleased when I first heard the brand new CD Red Beaten Path by Steve Rushingwind! My ears were delighted with the upbeat sounds and overall complete musical talent. Not only that, but the artist really lives up to and far beyond the talent of today. The blending of the flute with all sorts of beats as well as vocals really blew away others in this style of music. Rushingwind gives his listeners some of the best Native American flute music in the world. It is not only relaxing music but it is music that lights a fire for the soul. The sounds are amazing and Steve really knows how to groove, let me tell you! The music that this brand new CD is pumping out is NOT for the crowd of listeners that just want to sit back and relax, this music is for EVERYONE! The vocals blow you away with the energy that flows from the tech savvy beats! I just can not get enough of Red Beaten Path.
* I was given the CD Red Beaten Path by Steve Rushingwind for an honest review.
All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated for them. FIVE IS THE HIGHEST AMOUNT OF STARS FOR REVIEW PURPOSES.
Many of Granville County’s Native American families came to the county from Virginia to escape the intrusions of the British colony. The Bass,Evans, and Anderson families are just several examples of coastal Algonquian speaking peoples that followed this route. The Kersey family is no exception, and has roots in Surry County, VA among the Weyanoke, an Algonquian speaking people who allied and moved in with Nottoway and Tuscarora on their reservations. In this blog post I will trace the Kersey family from the Surry Co, VA area to Granville Co, NC.
Lumbee scholar J. Cedric Woods published an essay titled, “Lumbee Origins: The Weyanoke-Kersey Connection” in support of the Lumbee Tribe’s federal recognition bid. The full text of the essay can be found here and here (pdf format). The tribal origins of the Kersey family are relevant to the Lumbees because the tribe’s Lowry/Lowrie family of Robeson County, NC…

So what does this mean?
For those of you how haven’t been following this issue let me start with what this case was about.
When the Affordable Care Act was originally written, the thought was that all of the states would manage their own exchanges. In reality that is not what happened. There are currently 34 states who do not operate their own exchanges and rely on the federal exchange to provide coverage to their constituents.
Those who have been challenging the Affordable Care Act found a part of the law that would have completely undermined the intent of the Affordable Care Act. The part of the law that they challenged was that it was written that subsidies are only available to those who enrolled in a state exchange. According to them, those in the 34 states who enrolled in plans through the marketplace would not be eligible for the…

WATCH: A hundred wood bison were flown into Shageluk, Alaska to help re-establish the species. Lauren Maxwell reports.
PORTAGE, Alaska – The first of 100 wood bison aimed at re-establishing a species that went extinct more than a century ago in Alaska were flown Sunday to a rural village.
Thirty 30 juveniles age 2 or younger were loaded into specially designed “bison boxes,” and trucked from the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage to Anchorage. They made a one-hour flight to Shageluk and arrived at about 1 p.m.
In several weeks, after 70 more wood bison reach Shageluk, and after they’ve become acclimated, they will be released as a group into the Inoko Flats, one of the areas of Alaska where wood bison once roamed.
Mike Miller, director of the conservation center, which has housed animals imported from Canada since 2008, said restoring an animal to its native habitat is…

In 2014, there were 36 seizures of fentanyl in Calgary – and this year, police have already made 13 fentanyl seizures.
The largest fentanyl seizure in Calgary in 2015 was made on February 2nd, when investigators found 11,597 pills.

TULSA, Okla. – The slow start to America’s tornado season came to a violent end Wednesday, when tornadoes raked the city of Tulsa during its evening rush hour, killing one person and injuring others.
Tulsa County Sheriff’s Capt. Billy McKelvey said one person was killed in a mobile home park near that was nearly destroyed Wednesday amid severe weather.
