(Photo by Saul Perez)The job description for a janitor at R.L. Paschal High School generally includes mopping floors and clearing the cafeteria of lunch trash, but one janitor at the school is also known to students as a mentor and truant officer.Charles “Slick” Williams has been at Paschal for 18 years.During any passing period when students grab snacks and dart between classes, they’ll hear his voice booming in the hallways, “What’s up son! Get on to class now; you’re going to be late. I don’t need you getting in trouble today.”School officials, students and alumni said Williams has dedicated his life to making sure the students at Paschal have somebody they can look up to and lean on for help when they need it.“I see him in the hallway when the tardy bell has rung,” said Stephanie Lewis-Boatner, an administrator at Paschal. “He talks in that military voice, and he’ll say, ‘Sir, what are you doing out here you need to get to class.’ He’s funny, but he’s authoritative and the kids respect him.”Williams grew up in Fort Worth’s Como neighborhood. When he retired from the Navy, he returned and went to work at Paschal.He said being in the Navy molded him as a leader who could inspire others to be leaders.“Most of all, the Navy helped me appreciate every color and nationality in the good ‘ol U.S.A.,” he said. “No matter where you go, you represent your country proudly, and most of all you represent your home-front, your family [and] that last name that God gave you.”Williams said the principal who hired him recognized his leadership and mentorship could benefit students.“I think she liked the way I interviewed,” he said.Lewis-Boatner, an administrator at Paschal for 14 years, said Williams is drawn to students he thinks are on the wrong path in school.“He’s like a father figure,” she said. “He just carries himself that way. Some kids even look for him when they need something. He’s just there for faculty, students and staff.”Moses Gomez, who graduated from Paschal in 2012, said Williams was a mentor for him personally.“There were days when I just wanted to give up on school and just skip class,” Gomez said. “But Slick was always there to keep me going.”Gomez studies at Tarrant County College and works as the accountant clerk and hospitality services coordinator at Bass Hall. While at Paschal, Gomez said he could always count on Williams to encourage students without judging them.“He just genuinely wanted the best for you and wanted you to make something out of your life,” Gomez said.Williams said students named him “Slick” in part because he always manages to be around.“I used to walk up on the students doing something they have no business doing,” Williams said. “One kid said, ‘Man you so slick!’ And from then on, I just told them to call me ‘Slick.’”Williams said students like Gomez motivate him to keep serving the students of Paschal as a leader and mentor.Each year when students graduate, he said he hates to see them go but is proud of them.“My memories of them graduating are the best because they’re on their way, and they have made it to the point where they go on to different universities,” he said. “They are representing their families very well.”Williams said that he plans to spend the rest of his career at Paschal until he retires a couple of years from now.“Knowing me I’ll probably still be doing the same thing: mentoring,” Williams said. “I’ll probably still walk around in different areas and just talk to folks. That’s me; I’m just a people person.” Saul Perez Saul Perezhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/saul-perez/ Facebook Saul Perezhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/saul-perez/ Linkedin Saul Perezhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/saul-perez/ Men’s basketball routs Alabama State Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Men’s basketball continues win streak + posts Men’s basketball claims Global Sports Classic championship Men’s basketball dominates season opener Saul Perezhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/saul-perez/ ReddIt Twitter Previous articleStudy sanctuaries on campus, in Fort WorthNext articleUpcoming construction on Bluebonnet Circle Saul Perez RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Twitterlast_img read more

GOATS AND GOVERNORS: Flowers pens tell-all novel about his time in government

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration MESSENGER PHOTO/COURTNEY PATTERSON“Of Goats and Governors, Six Decades of Alabama Political Stories” by Steve Flowers, popular political columnist and commentator, is now available for sale. The book is a guide to Alabama’s colorful political history. Book signings for Flowers will be from 5 until 7 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy. Two book signings are set for Sept. 11, from noon until 2 p.m. at the Troy Public Library and from 3 until 5 p.m. at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge.“Of Goats and Governors, Six Decades of Alabama Political Stories” a memoir by popular political columnist and commentator Steve Flowers was released today by New South Books, Inc.Flowers is Alabama’s most watched and read political columnist and commentator. His column on Alabama politics appears weekly in 66 Alabama newspapers, therefore, cultivating fertile ground for his peephole into Alabama’s fascinating political history.“Few states have as fascinating a political history as Alabama, especially in the post-World War II era,” Flowers said. “I was fortunate to have rubbed elbows with some of the most interesting figures in 20th century American government and politics.” By Jaine Treadwell Published 4:00 am Saturday, August 1, 2015 Book Nook to reopen When George C. Wallace was elected to his first term as governor of Alabama, Bassett introduced Flowers as “my little page and best buddy who’s going to follow me in the House.”Fast forward to 1982. At age 30, Flowers was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives and he didn’t just represent Pike County; he represented Wallace’s district as well – quite an honor for the young representative, who became a part of Alabama’s political history,“Alabama has a extremely colorful political history,” Flowers said. “Alabama politics is rich enough that George C. Wallace and ‘Big Jim’ Folsom stories alone could fill a book. Bill Baxley, Howell Heflin, Albert Brewer, Jere Beasley, McDowell Lee, John Patterson, even ‘Shorty’ Price all make for good stories and good reading. And there are a lot of others.”Most of the stories in “Of Goats and Governors” are told from Flowers’ own recollections. Others are retellings of stories that were told to him. Some of the stories were told specifically for the book and some by sons of the governors.Flowers shares stories about Miss Mittie, the little lady who sat in the corner at the State House, not saying much but knowing all that went on all over the capitol building.“She knew everything from how a legislator voted on a bill to what he had for dinner,” Flowers said, laughing.A lot of the stories are about politicians from all across the state but some are straight out of Pike County.“One of the best races in Pike County was the classic race for probate judge in 1958 between Ben Reeves and Gardner Bassett,” Flowers said. “Ben Reeves was unbeatable. He was a political genius. He knew the numbers. He knew where the votes were and who the votes were. He once said he didn’t care what people thought about him as long as he got 51 percent of the votes.”Flowers didn’t skirt round the fact that votes were often bought and sold and how that played into the election process. He talks about campaigning from the “stump” and how entertainers such as Minnie Pearl helped politicians into office. He talks about the times when politicians took to the streets to shake hands and kiss babies all for the sake of a vote.“Those are the bygone days of politics,” he said. “The South has provided the country with the most colorful characters in political history and Alabama has had more than its share. I wrote the memoir because I wanted their stories to be told because they are stories worth telling now and far on down the road. These politicians were a different breed. The old-time politicians are gone but their stories are a huge part of the legacy of the South. They need to be told.”Flowers served in the Alabama House of Representatives from 1982-1998. During his 16-year tenure, he recorded a perfect attendance record. His House colleagues honored him as Outstanding Freshman member in 1982, Most Ethical member in 1988 and Most Outstanding member in 1992.In addition to his weekly column, Flowers serves as the political analyst for the University of Alabama radio and television network. His weekly radio commentary for the university is listened to statewide on Alabama Public Radio. He is also the political analyst for WAKA/the Alabama News Network in Montgomery. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day But it didn’t just happen that Flowers was at the capitol. He was there as the little buddy of Bassett who had realized his passion for politics and was grooming him for the political arena.“I grew up on Maple Street in Troy and, back then, a lot of prominent men lived on North Three Notch, Orange and Maple Streets,” Flowers said. “Even as young boy I had a keen interest in politics. I guess I was born that way. State Representative Gardner Bassett and Pike County Probate Judge Ben Reeves both realized my passion for politics and took an interest in me.”Flowers said Reeves was his mentor but he and Bassett developed a close personal relationship.“Mr. Gardner would let me go with him down to the Riverside Café on The Square in Troy and listen to men talk politics,” Flowers said. “He’d take me on road trips that had to do with politics. We’d take off in his Chrysler New Yorker and we’d be going down the highway at 70 miles per hour. Curly Long, the state trooper everybody feared, would just wave us on by. That’s when I first realized how important politicians are.” You Might Like CIRCUS FUN: Cirque Millenia brings the ‘Circus of the Future’ to Troy MESSENGER PHOTO/COURTNEY PATTERSONCirque Millennia, “The Circus of the Future,” performed at the Pike County Cattleman’s Complex Thursday night.

It was interesting to hear their views.”The 51st Electric Cooperative Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. included “everything in Washington,” Strother said. Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) The purpose of the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour is for the students to learn how the government operates and to see the impact electric cooperatives have on the legislative process.Strother and Grice were first selected to attend the Alabama Electric Cooperatives’ Youth Tour in Montgomery based on the essays they submitted.In researching and writing the essays, they both were impressed by how people in the rural areas worked together to bring electricity to their communities.

Accounting principles simply won’t work for human capital

first_imgHRconsultant Paul Kearns has accused the Accounting for People Task Force oftrying to measure the impact of people on performance using accountingtechniques.Kearnsis concerned that the methods the taskforce is suggesting to measure humancapital management (HCM) will not work.”Theproblem is that they [the taskforce members] are barking up the wrong tree.They are trying to use accounting principles to measure things that weren’t meantto be measured using those principles.”Thetaskforce’s consultation document does acknowledge that there are realdifferences in opinion over the best way to measure HCM.Itstates: “Some writers place greater weight on factors such as fairtreatment, job security, scope for employee development, and design of jobs topromote autonomy and challenge. Others stress the role of worker flexibility,performance management and the use of incentive payments.”Butit identifies an emerging consensus between leading researchers that there is”compelling evidence for linkage between strong people management andperformance”.HoweverKearns, director at consultancy PWL, is worried the taskforce is usingtechniques that are out of step with the profession.MostHR professionals, he said, aren’t using HCM and are not up to speed with thelanguage and practices.”Thetaskforce is a bit ahead of itself. HR people are doing HR, not HCM,” hesaid.Hesaid he is concerned that the measures are too simplistic and the taskforce’smethodology is questionable. Related posts:No related photos.

Indices of body condition and body composition in female Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella)

first_imgAn attempt was made to develop simple, inexpensive, rapid means of determining body composition in Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella). Measurements of total body water (TBW) and total body lipid (TBL), obtained by hydrogen isotope dilution, were compared to the results of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and morphometric indices of body condition in 52 adult females. TBW was weakly correlated with BIA measurements of resistance (v= -0.30, P < 0.03). Conductor volume (length2/resistance) was more highly correlated with TBW(r= 0.75, P < 0.0001) and the inclusion of mass into the predictive equation improved the correlation further (r= 0.95, P < 0.0001). A body condition index (mass/length) previously used in pinniped studies was positively correlated to TBL (r= 0.77, P < 0.0001) validating its use as a relative index of condition. However, body mass alone was highly correlated to TBW (r= 0.94, P < 0.0001) and appears to provide a simple, rapid means of estimating body composition in adult females. This technique may also be applicable to juvenile male Antarctic fur seals.last_img read more

Clarendon sit-in students claim victory

first_imgThe Bodleian sit-in protest has been hailed a victory by student demonstrators, even though University authorities have refused to confirm their agreement to demands made during the sit-in.Nearly 100 students occupied the Bodleian’s Clarendon Building last week in protest at Israeli actions in Gaza. They called on Oxford University to “release a statement in support of the rights of Palestinians” as well as divestment from arms suppliers to Israel. They also demanded 5 fully-funded scholarships to Palestinian students.University Vice-Chancellor John Hood criticised the student occupation of the Clarendon building in a letter released on Wednesday. He said the Bodleian barricade “caused disruption and inconvenience to fellow students and other members of the University” and added, “unlawful action of this kind cannot be condoned.” He also did not condemn Israel’s actions.The Senior Proctor also avoided expressing outright disapproval of Israeli actions in his response to the demands. He, however, promised to raise in Council the concerns regarding possible University investments in arms manufacturers. He also said it was regrettable that “many civilian casualties occurred in educational establishments.”He stated, “the occupation of University property or facilities, and disruption of the activities of the University are offences.” He added that sections of the criminal law may also apply to the protesters’ actions. However, he added that he was prepared to recommend a “relatively lenient course of action,” given the peaceful nature of the protest.The Oxford Students in Solidarity with Gaza movement that occupied the building welcomed these letters, although some have accused the University of going back on agreements made during the negations last week.Spokeswoman Amy Gilligan said, “whereas we welcome the Senior Proctor’s statement and view it as a positive step in upholding the University’s commitment to universal human rights, it is our view that the University should take a stronger stance condemning the horrendous attacks on Palestinian students and educational institutions.” She went on to state that the group “insists that the promised steps be pursued and applied in full.”Juliette Harkin of St Anthony’s College, one of the individuals responsible for organising the occupation, stated that the outcome was “definitely a victory on many levels,” not least for the way that it had opened dialogue on the situation in Gaza.She commented, “to have a uni like Oxford talking about these issues and promising to take things forward – this is quite an achievement.”In response to claims that the University should not take a political stance on the issue, she said, “we don’t need to talk about pro-Israel or pro-Palestine, we are just talking about justice.”Other protesters expressed disappointment with the response of the proctors, with some arguing that they had failed to execute agreements made during the negotiations.James Norrie of the Oxford Radical Forum stated, “we do feel they have fallen short of what they agreed in negotiations.”Other groups have attacked the demonstration as a whole.Presidents the Jewish Society, Rafi Cohen and Rachel Romain, issued a joint statement declaring, “we feel that it is a shame that parts of the student body have prioritised the pursuance of short term political goals over the pro-active alleviation of the suffering of all people.”Some students have also spoken out against the protesters’ behaviour. A St. Antony’s student stated that the “protests are not aimed at dialogue, they’re the opposite, they’re silencing moderate in the face of extreme.”A Christ Church first year called the actions of the protesters “the epitome of detached, academic self-righteousness.” They said, “the students don’t want to solve anything, but just want to feel good, self-righteous about our cause.”last_img read more

first_imgWhen moe. gets into a groove, there’s just no telling how far or wide they’re going to take it.

Eleven years later, their 12-song, 2-set appearance still sends shivers down our spines.The show started off innocently enough, with a power-packed “Plane Crash” to get the boat-side festivities rolling. The energetic opener blurred into “Punchline”, before fun jams on “Shoot First” and “Tambourine” punctuated the middle of the opening set. They closed out with an extended take on “32 Things,” setting the stage for a jam-heavy second frame.Set two started innocently enough with a great “Yodelittle” out of the gate, taking the tune into exploratory waters for a full 26-minute jam! moe. then found their way into a jam on “Time Ed”, before returning to their groovy tune “George.” The set was far from over, as extended takes on “The Road,” “Happy Hour Hero” and “Seat Of My Pants” brought the full on rage to the Cruise! With a finale of “Blue Jean Pizza” for the encore, moe. thoroughly rocked the boat during their 2007 performance.Fortunately, thanks to taper ed v, we can listen to the full show.
