SHE STOOD UP BY SITTING DOWN
Rosa Parks became
the first woman to lie in honor in the Rotunda, sharing the tribute given to Abraham
Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and other national leaders. Capitol Police estimated the crowd at
more than 30,000 but some participants said it was far bigger.
Parks was a 42-year-old tailor's
assistant at a Montgomery, Ala., department store when she was arrested and fined $10 plus
$4 in court costs. That triggered a 381-day boycott of the bus system led by a 26-year-old
minister, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
The U.S. Supreme
Court ruled in December 1956 that segregated seats on city buses were unconstitutional,
giving momentum to the battle against laws that separated the races in public
accommodations and businesses throughout the South.
Parks' act exposed
her and her husband, Raymond, to harassment and death threats, and they lost their jobs in
Montgomery. They moved to Detroit with Rosa Parks' mother, Leona McCauley, in 1957.
Rosa Parks held a
series of low-paying jobs before U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr. hired her in 1965 to work in
his Detroit office. Conyers, speaking during the Washington memorial service, recalled a
1990 visit to Detroit by Nelson Mandela.
The former South
African president led the crowd in a chant of Parks' name, "which made us realize
that this is an international phenomenon that we celebrate," Conyers said. "Rosa
Parks is worldwide."

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- August
19, 2009 -- Tom Head, 76, almost had to scratch his head after hooking a huge catfish on
the Ocmulgee River near Warner Robins.
Head pulled in a
103-lbs catfish earlier this week. The fish was more than 57 inches long and greater than
41 inches in girth. The head itself was almost 16 inches wide, according to the Georgia
Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Division. Head used a live bream on a
tuna hook when this flathead was caught.
A representative for
the DNR said Head used a method called jug fishing to reel in the big catch.
But because a jug line is not considered sport tackle, the fish is not eligible for state
record status, even though it beats the current state record by 20 pounds, the
representative said. Bush hooks, trot lines, jugs, baskets, and nets, while popular
methods of fishing, are not considered sporting tackle, said the DNR.
Flathead catfish are
a non-native fish to the Ocmulgee River. The Ocmulgee River flows from the Piedmont region
of Georgia below Lake Jackson to Macon, then winds southeast through the upper coastal
plain where it joins the Altamaha River east of Lumber City. It is considered a great
river for canoeing and fishing.
