Exploring the world of women who play full contact sports.

For the premier episode of KBOO's "Citizen's Sports Report," we will explore the social dynamics of women who play full contact sports.  Are certains sports "made" for one gender, but not the other?  Why do some see Roller Derby as a "woman's sport," and American Football seen as a "man's sport?" 

During this episode we take a trip to Oaks Park to attend a Rose City Roller Derby Bout.  We will hear what the players, fans, and one of co-founders have to say on this issue.  We also posed these questions to three players from the Portland Fighting Fillies, one of Portland's all female, semi-pro, full contact football teams.

The Case of the Angola 3

Angola 3Herman Wallace & Albert Woodfox, who spent nearly 36 years in solitary and are still serving life sentences in Angola for the alleged murder of Brent Miller, a white correctional officer, in 1972; and Robert Wilkerson, who like Herman and Albert, was targeted for his activism, and then freed in 2001 after 29 years in solitary.

Nov. 25, 2004 The Kansas City Star: MARK MORRIS  

"A 61-year-old peace activist was sentenced to fifty one months in prison Wednesday for threatening federal officials and pouring red paint and cranberry juice on a federal courthouse security station."

"Helen Woodson previously served 20 years in federal prison for a 1984 incident in which she and three others used a jackhammer to chip the concrete cover of a nuclear missile silo."

"Three days after her 1993 release from prison in the Whiteman silo protest, Woodson walked into an Illinois bank and used an unloaded! starter pistol to get $25,000 from a teller."

"According to press reports, she piled the money on the floor, burned it and told witnesses: “Money is evil. You don't believe in God; you only worship money.”

 
 
 

Alvaro Luna Hernandez

program date: 
Thu, 04/23/2009

Sheriff Jack McDaniel of Alpine, Texas, On July 18, 1996 arrived to arrest Alvaro at his home on a trumped up charge of aggravated robbery  When the unarmed Alvaro questioned the sheriff's action, the officer drew his weapon. Before he could shoot, Alvaro disarmed him and fled. (At the trial for robbery, Alvaro represented himself and had the charge dismissed.). No warrant for the arrest had been issued.

Later after the trial decision, without identifying themselves, police began shooting indiscriminately at the house, cars parked in front and at the public streetlights.  At a new trial, witnesses explained, that the police shooting resembled a "war zone."  Alvaro returned fire in self-defense and never shot or injured anyone.  Alvaro dialed 911 (emergency) and notified other officials that police were firing at him and others would not allow them to surrender.

Alvaro was convicted of "threatening" the sheriff, but acquitted on the charge of shooting Sgt. Hines on June 29, 1997.  He received a 50-year sentence. His case is currently on appeal.

Since this statement was written, Merle Austin Africa joined the ancestors. She died in prison, March 13, 1998.

Revolution is not a word but an application, it is not war but peace, it does not weaken it strengthens, revolution does not cause separation it generates togetherness, ... revolution is an activity, a generating force that continues generating, continues activating, continues togetherness, solidarity will never be realized so long as geography is imperative, solidarity is unity, without unity you can 't have revolution, ... revolution is organization just as solidarity is togetherness,... the word people should be a symbol of identity which should unite people and dispel war but to call everybody a person and go to war against people is to say that people are compelled to conflict makin peace hopeless and everything people are striving to make, to have, to be, ... if we expect to accomplish the defeat of oppression, we are going to have to understand the power of assertion.

Oak's Rose. The story behind Ethan's 3rd LP.

Sun, 03/15/2009

From a PICA Press Release...  Oaks is acclaimed ambient electronic experimentalist Ethan Rose’s third full-length, following on the 2006 release Ceiling Songs and the 2007 release, Spinning Pieces. Ethan’s music was also featured in Gus Van Sant’s latest film, Paranoid Park. Ethan explains Oaks as follows: “Over the past year I’ve been coming out to the Oaks Park Roller Rink to play and record the Wurlitzer Theater Organ that is located there. The organ dates from the 1920s and was originally housed in the Broadway Theater in downtown Portland where it was used to accompany silent films. It is currently played and maintained by Keith Fortune who has been involved with the organ and the rink for the past fifteen years. I’ve had the privilege of assisting Keith with organ repairs, which has deepened my appreciation of the instrument. Musically speaking, my primary interest with this organ has been to bring its antiquated sounds into a modern context, essentially treating it with the same sense of sonic reinterpretation that I have brought to my previous works.” 

Ethan Rose’s work reflects his interests in old technologies, new sounds, and the restless exploration of musical form. Over the past ten years he has released recordings, scored films, performed internationally, created sound installations, and worked with a variety of collaborators. Drawing from his interests in musique concrete, chance operations and American minimalism, Ethan creates shifting sound environments that merge the old with the new.  His music is electronic in nature but maintains an organic quality because of his exclusive use of acoustic sound sources. Much of his recent work has centered around instruments from eras long past, including music boxes, player pianos, and carillons. However, he is interested in pulling new sounds and ideas out of these antiquated devices rather than treating them with a sense of preservation. By bringing a carefully detailed sense of arrangement to his music, Ethan’s pieces transport the close listener to a warm and unusual place.
