ANTIFA AT STURGIS

NOT ONE OF THEIR SMARTEST MOVES

A protester was arrested after kicking at a biker during the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally in western South Dakota, the police chief said Sunday.

Chief Geody Vandewater said a small group of protesters was gathered on Sturgis’ Main Street on Saturday,

When one of the demonstrators kicked the motorcycle as it passed by.

The crowd began swarming toward the protesters, and Vandewater said police escorted the demonstrators to a safe spot.

“It was a little chaotic for a bit,” the chief told The Associated Press.

He said among other things,

The protesters were demonstrating against Republican Gov. Kristi Noem’s decision not to shut down South Dakota,

During the coronavirus pandemic and that the Sturgis rally was being held during the pandemic.

The protester — a man from Rapid City, South Dakota — was arrested for disorderly conduct, Vandewater said.

No one was hurt.

A Los Angeles County church wins legal fight to hold indoor services

COURT RULES: CHURCH SERVICES ALLOWED

A Los Angeles County church can hold indoor services if attendees wear masks and stay at least six feet apart, a judge has ruled.

Superior Court Judge Gregory W. Alarcon issued his decision Friday after hearing arguments in Los Angeles County.

The county asked for a temporary restraining order against Grace Community Church in Sun Valley.

The church and county filed dueling lawsuits this week over health orders requiring that houses of worship not hold indoor services during the coronavirus crisis.

Grace Community Church and Pastor John MacArthur brought a complaint Wednesday,

It was against Gov. Gavin Newsom, Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra, Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles County health officials,

alleging they have shown unconstitutional favoritism in the enforcement of coronavirus regulations to the detriment of churches.

COURT RULES: CHURCH SERVICES ALLOWED

“I am very grateful the court has allowed us to meet inside and we are happy for a few weeks to comply and respect what the judge has asked of us because he is allowing is to meet,” MacArthur said.

“This vindicates our desire to stay open and serve our people.

This also gives us an opportunity to show that we are not trying to be rebellious or unreasonable,

But that we will stand firm to protect our church against unreasonable, unconstitutional restrictions.”

The county’s lawsuit against the church asked that MacArthur and his staff be ordered to abide by health orders,

And not conduct indoor, in-person worship and that they require those attending outdoor services to wear masks and stay at least six feet apart.

The county issued a statement regarding its suit Thursday,

Saying it filed its legal action “reluctantly” and “after working with the church for several weeks in hopes of gaining voluntary compliance with the health officer orders,

Which allow for religious services to be held outdoors in order to slow the spread of a deadly and highly contagious virus.”

But church attorney Charles LiMandri said previously that it is unconstitutional for Newsom,

And the state to discriminate against churches by treating them less favorably than other organizations,

And activities that are not protected by the 1st Amendment.

He said this is especially so when the government “has given free rein to protesters,

And is not similarly restricting marijuana dispensaries, large retail outlets and factories and abortion providers.”

DAWG SAYS:

I NEVER DID UNDERSTAND WHY CHURCHES NOT ALLOWED WHEN SO MANY OTHER THINGS ARE.

CHURCH IS VERY ESSENTIAL TO MANY PEOPLE.

A Civil War Battle Once Took Place In The Small Town Of Volcano In Northern California

California isn’t exactly the first place you think of regarding Civil War history.

After all, the West was pretty far removed from the war taking place between the North and South.

However, it turns out there’s one Northern California town that played a small but notable role in the war.

In fact, it was the location of an actual Civil War battle!

This piece of small town lore is a story that locals love to tell visitors since it’s not a very well-known tidbit of information,

Yet it perfectly encapsulates the rich history of this charming town.

ADVENTUROUS FUN IN NOR CAL SMALL TOWN

Visitors who take the time to get to know this delightful town will likely hear the story of how Volcano was once the site of a Civil War battle.

This unlikely story is more than just an interesting tidbit. It’s a piece of town lore that has come to define this unique community.

Back in 1860, Volcano was actually considered a “large city”.

Due to a steady population streaming in and the wealth that the Mother Lode brought,

Volcano became the place of many of California’s firsts.

The first private law school, astronomical observatory, theater group, and circulating library originated here.

CIVIL WAR SENTIMENTS WERE STRONG

At the time, Federal and Confederate support was pretty divided in California.

Many of the state’s newest inhabitants proudly represented the views of their former homes,

Both North and South. Volcano was no different.

As a rip-roaring gold town, Volcano began sending gold over to the North.

Approximately $98 million to be exact!

However, it soon became evident that Southern sympathizers planned to start capturing gold shipments and using it for their own cause.

As a result, a small troop of Union militia called the Volcano Blues got their hands on a 6-pound, smooth-bore cannon for protection.

The old brass cannon was shipped to Sacramento and brought to Volcano in a hearse during the night.

The Volcano Blues didn’t know much about artillery, but this wouldn’t matter.

When the Rebels started marching down the street to intercept the gold,

The Blues unveiled the cannon and effectively warded them off.

No shots were fired, making this one of the shortest and least bloodiest Civil War battles in history.

The cannon still holds a special place in the hearts of Volcano locals.

In fact, it would be fired on holidays and during community celebrations until the end of World War II.

The cannon is officially out-of-commission today, but you can still see it for yourself in a shed near Union Square.

This Civil War battle may have lacked drama and bloodshed, but it’s still a treasured tibit of Northern California history.

Passed down for generations and told enthusiastically to any visitor who’s willing to listen,

It’s a fascinating, and humorous, piece of Volcano lore.

ALSO IT IS JUST A COUPLE MILES FROM DAFFODIL HILL A SIDE OF A MOUNTAIN FULL OF FLOWERS.

VIRGINIA MAYOR CALLS KAMALA HARRIS “AUNT JEMIMA”

The idiot mayor of a small town in Virginia is being urged to resign,

Following a Facebook post in which he claimed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden “just announced Aunt Jemima” as his running mate.

Luray Mayor Barry Presgraves made the comment last weekend,

And has since faced a bitter backlash from the Luray Town Council as well as other residents who characterized his post as racist.

Presgraves has since taken down his post and on Monday apologized at a town council meeting.

“I understand what I posted on social media was wrong, offensive and unbecoming,” Presgraves said.

Reading from a prepared statement he added, “I also want to make a direct apology to all people of color and women.

Passing off demeaning and worn out racial stereotypes as humor isn’t funny.”

DIPSHDIOT OF THE DAY BARRY PRESGRAVES

Luray Council Member Leah Pence believes his apology isn’t enough and has sent Presgraves a letter asking him to step down.

“Barry – I am writing to strongly urge you to resign over a racist comment you made on Facebook,” the letter states.

“The comment you posted has a type of humor that [has] not been appropriate or funny in my lifetime or yours.”

Residents in the 5,000-person town also…….
