The Madison Times – 2/28/2013

Happy Thursday!

Lots of great stuff in The Madison Times this week…

  • The walking revolution is set to begin on March 10. Thousands of girls and women across the country will walk 100 minutes in solidarity on that date starting exactly at 3:30 p.m. to commemorate 100 years since the passing of Harriet Tubman. We talk to Marilyn Ruffin, one of the organizers of the Madison Tubman Walkers.
  • Haywood Simmons, a former Wisconsin Badger and NFL football player, has turned his passion for sports, nutrition, fitness, and personal improvement into a lifetime calling. We sit down with him at his gym – Phitness Plus – to talk about nutrition, health, and closing the gaps.
  • Terri Strong has been voted Delta of the Year for the Madison Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. We have a photo and the story.
  • In a Parks’ Place editorial, I talk about how the school board “race” highlights the tremendous disconnect between the two Madisons. It gets pretty deep.
Other stories:

  • Some students have become ‘numb’ to violence
  • Trayvon Martin case: One year later
  • The University of Wisconsin-Extension has created a new resource to help shape future leaders — The Center for Inclusive and Engaged Leadership
