  • IN THE BEGINNING: Massed for the start of Race for the Cure.

Huge crowd this morning at Race for the Cure. Tuneful throngs are gathering at the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena-West Helena. They say there's a football game in Alabama.

At our house, we'll celebrate the birthday of Shem Ngwira, a young man from Malawi, come to Little Rock to prepare for a life in public service at the Clinton School.

If you have anything to add, here's the place.

ALSO: I've received word from two lawyers and news is also appearing on Facebook about the death of Circuit Judge L.T. Simes of Helena-West Helena, who was undergoing cancer treatment. Some knew him as the singing judge for his participation in gospel groups. He was on hand with gospel albums on Cherry Street at the Blues Fest I attended a few years back.
