“We are disheartened that the Governor has allowed political retribution to stand as a substitute for reasoned policymaking and respect for the rule of law. The Legislature passed this bill [Sen. Sub. HB 2338] to punish the Supreme Court for upholding the Kansas Constitution and ensuring that Kansas children have equitable access to a world-class education. Despite hearing from hundreds of Kansans urging him to veto this extreme measure, the Governor has once again chosen politics over protecting the best interests of our state.” -- Ryan Wright, Executive Director of Kansans for Fair Courts

ERROL JOHNSON: ‘I LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN SPRINGING AN UPSET AFTER I’VE BEEN TOLD: ‘YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE!’’
Since Nobby Nobbs sadly pulled down the shutters on his legendary 'Loser's Limited' gym in Aston four years ago, Wednesbury grafter Errol Johnson has inherited the mantle as 'Ace Face' on the Midland fight scene.
A decent amateur during his school years, the 44 year old Great Barr born, resident of West Bromwich has held licences as a trainer-second, manager, matchmaker and promoter, making him just about as qualified as anyone to comment on boxing in Britain today.
Ahead of the biggest promotion in the Black Country for years – Friday evening's 'Double Trouble' dual British title sell-out at Walsall Town Hall, live on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546) – boxing writer Glynn Evans hunted Errol down to discuss his career and how the fight game is faring in the Midlands.
When did you first become interested in boxing? What fuelled the fascination?
The boxing started when I was ten. As a kid I was actually a decent footballer. I had a trial at Doncaster Rovers and was supposed to join West Brom as an apprentice at the same time as David Burrows who went on to star for Liverpool. But I'd become more interested in the boxing and ended up playing semi-pro instead.
I first went to the Wednesbury boxing gym just for extra training, to help me with the football. But I sparred the very first night, shaped up pretty well and got hooked. My dad Terry, who'd also been a footballer, took on the matchmaking role at the club.
What is your recollection of your own ring career?
Between the ages of eleven and sixteen and a half, I had 57 amateur contests for the Wednesbury ABC and won about 40. I was a complete boxer (as opposed to a puncher or brawler) and once got to a Midland schoolboy final.
Back then, you'd box the same kid several times and I had mini-series with the likes of (future Commonwealth light-welter challenger) Shaun Cogan and (decent pro) Dean Hiscox. My last fight was against Rob McCracken (ex WBC middleweight challenger and current Team GB performance director). He stopped me. Immediately after, I needed a nose operation which put me out for six months and I never boxed again. Every time I sparred after it kept bruising up.
How did you become involved in coaching?
While I was sidelined, quite a few new young kids started up at the gym. Initially, I'd show 'em the basics then I started cornering 'em. Within three and a half months, I had a (Class A) British schoolboy champion, Andrew Lester, who went on to win about five national titles. I was only 17 when I led his corner.
I really got into the coaching and had about a dozen good kids quite quickly. Though I was still training, I just stopped competing myself. Over a 15 year period in the amateurs I coached 39 national junior champions and had 11 internationals at all different levels.
I never coached a senior ABA champion - which was a regret - but I was getting closer every year. Jimmy Gould got to the final one year (1998) but lost to Nigel Wright and three others got to the national semis.
To what extent were you aware of the Black Country's rich boxing heritage as you were growing up?
I wasn't, if I'm truthful. I only ever went to one pro show, a Midland Area light-heavyweight title fight between Roy Skeldon and John Foreman at Dudley Town Hall (September 1990) and that was only cos I'd arranged to meet someone.
I'd watch the superfights, your Haglers and Leonards but, them apart, I didn't even watch a lot of boxing on the TV. I still don't, unless it's a fighter that I know down the line could affect one of my fighters. Obviously I tune into the very big fights but I've certainly never been what you'd call an anorak.
I learnt most of what I know from Reg Steele who used to run the Midland ABA coaching courses. He trained Pat Cowdell as an amateur at the Warley ABC and also trained Richie Woodhall until he died. It was Reg who made Richie what he was.
What persuaded you to give the pro game a try?
There were a couple of things. One time, I had Lee Woodley (AKA Young Mutley) in the Midland ABAs against Jamie Scanlon. Jamie had lost his (medical) card so Mutley should've gone through. We consented to Mutley boxing him anyway in a non championship bout but they gave the decision to Scanlon and he progressed through the ABAs. There was a huge hoo-ha about it.
Around the same time, I had three very dubious majority decisions go against me the same night and I'd just had enough. Dad, who was making the matches, wasn't well so I decided to take a few of the lads pro. I knew they were good enough.
For the first few years, we were using any gym, then we rented a place but lost that. Eight years ago, myself and Bob Plant bought our present place in Wednesbury. At our prime, we had 25 pros using our gym but now I'd say there's around 15. A few are real novices. I also manage a few from other gyms.
Bob was an amateur boxer at the Wednesbury club when I was a kid and then helped me out with the coaching. He's a real good boxing man, a top cutsman and a good craic.
Who are the leading fighters that you've been involved with over the years? Who was the best?
I've had (ex British welterweight champion Young) Mutley. I handled (ex British, Commonwealth and WBU cruiser king) Rob Norton towards the end of his career and Marcus Portman fought for the British title. Today, I've got Martin Gethin and Jason Welborn who are both fighting for British titles on Friday.
Over the years, I've had plenty of Area level champions but we seldom get the quality kids at our gym. The elite amateurs go elsewhere and most of ours, we groom from scratch. We're always up against it.
Our gym sort of inherited a lot of Nobby Nobbs' journeymen when he packed up a few years back and I helped 'em out as best I could. There's been other lads like Portman and Jimmy Beech who were good kids but couldn't sell tickets so I'd have to send 'em out on the road.
I was reluctant to do that because I'm naturally competitive, I want to be a winner. I don't enjoy that side but I have to say the kids are absolutely fantastic lads, great to be around.
I think Mutley was probably the best I've had but he didn't do as well as he should've. He was a quality boxer with a real nasty streak but no one really saw the best of him. He was very much a confidence fighter.
His upset over Michael Jennings to win the British title made him believe but his mind was never the same after he got stopped and lost his belt to Kevin Anderson. He'd been boxing fantastically well that night and couldn't work out how he got beat. He lost his edge after that.
If you think he was difficult to interview (Mutley was notoriously monosyllabic), you should've tried training him! He had no pattern to his life. He had all the physical attributes but, to get to the very top, you've also got to be mentally strong.
You've held licences as a trainer-second, matchmaker, manager and promoter. How did that come about? Which role is most enjoyable?
I got a manager's licence as soon as I was able and, though Dave Bradley held the promoter's licence, I was always doing most of the work and matchmaking for his shows, before I started running myself.
I was very lucky. Dad was the best matchmaker I've known. He knew every amateur going. He can't quite get to grips with the pros and the need to build your fighter up and gain experience against the journeymen. He always loved the 50-50 fights!
I probably enjoy coaching best. Because I work full time for the council as a finance manager in rent arrears, I don't get as much time to do it as I'd like. I'm confident that I've the ability to coach kids to win titles.
What is the high spot of your career thus far?
Muttley outpointing Michael Jennings to win the British title. I love nothing more than springing an upset when I'm told: 'You've got no chance'. Max Maxwell was supposed to be going places but two of mine, Rob Kenney and Tony Randell, both upset him in Midland Area title fights. That's what I get my buzz from.
My first few years in the pros were a real battle because nothing was given to us. To make my shows work, my kids had to box for peanuts to hopefully get a win that might get them a decent title chance down the line.
And the low spot?
There's not specifically been one but it really gets on your nerves when a kid who's been slogging his balls off in the gym gets blatantly robbed.
Two or three times I've lost quite a bit when I'm promoting. When you've been in the game as long as I have, you know that's going to happen. I try not to let it hassle me but it really gets the missus down!
I always make sure to keep a good bit aside whenever I make a bit of profit. Trouble is, I really love the kids I'm involved with. They're so down to earth. Most work full time so don't have it easy with the boxing. I like to give 'em a chance, if I can.
As you're involved in pro boxing from grassroots right through to championship level, few are better placed to comment on the sport's present state. In your opinion, is it healthy, both in the Midlands and nationwide?
The game's doing quite well locally. There's still plenty of interest and talent. Birmingham's stronger than it's been for a bit. There's a lot of different gyms. As well as me, (ex pro) Shaun Cooper has a gym in the Black Country, Paul Gough has a gym over Dudley way where Ryan Aston and others train. Jon Pegg has an active stable in Birmingham City Centre and Frankie Gavin is back training with Tom Chaney in Hall Green.
There's only Jon Pegg and myself running shows though. One year I did 17 in tandem with PJ (Rowson) but last year I think I did six. There's good local fighters such as Gavin, Macklin, Kal Yafai, Don Broadhurst...
Nationally, the game's no worse than when I first entered the pros 13 years ago. However, because of the competition from other sports, not to mention the rise in 'unlicensed' and White Collar (boxing), it's crucially we don't make a mess of the game internally.
There was a TV boom then but lately Sky are doing there best to kill it by going with just one promoter. Competition is healthy. It's not good for the game to try to kill all the others down. Thankfully, Frank has got BoxNation and (Mick) Hennessy is doing a bit with Channel Five.
What changes could be made to make the sport even better? What is needed to help boxing in Brum and the Black Country thrive again?
Like everyone else, I'd like to see the biggest fights made because a lot have gone by the wayside. I'd particularly love to see our top middleweights - Macklin, Barker and Murray - have a crack at each other. That's what's needed to keep the public interest high.
For the West Midlands to thrive we need our top stars to be based here. Too often they go elsewhere. Manchester was dead before Ricky Hatton, but he transformed it not just for himself but for the likes of Anthony Farnell, Michael Gomez, Jamie Moore and Thomas McDonagh.
Presently, there's no major venue in the Black Country where the fan base is strongest. There's not really been a major promotion in Birmingham, featuring a local draw at a really big venue since the riot involving Rob McCracken's fans at the NEC (September 1994).
Three of your fighters, Jason Welborn, Martin Gethin and Chris Keane are involved in championship fights next week. Tell us a little bit about each and why you think they could be triumphant?
It's been very stressful but I'm really looking forward to it and if I can get one result out of my two British title challengers, I'll be delighted.
Frankie Gavin against Jason Welborn might not mean a lot outside the West Midlands but here the interest is massive; a quality boxer against a pure fighter who's risen from nothing.
People are giving Jason no chance against Frankie Gavin but I don't see it that way. Course he's a massive underdog. I've known Frankie since he was about 11 and, defensively, he doesn't really have any flaws. Jason can't match Frankie for technical talent but nobody can.
But, unlike in the amateurs, skill doesn't always come out on top in 12 round championship fights. Look at the problems that Nick Blackwell gave Billy Joe Saunders recently. Unlike Jason, Frankie's not a big welterweight and, though he places his shots well, he can't punch. He doesn't knock anybody out.
Jason grew up sparring adults and is phenomenally strong; physically and mentally. He doesn't come to play, he comes to destroy! Yes, he's still learning but he can bang a little bit. Every shot he throws, you know about.
To stand a chance he needs to box at a high pace, draw Frankie into a brawl, similar to how Curtis Woodhouse did. We have to make Frankie feel uncomfortable, test his preparation, see how he copes with sustained pressure.
Jason's an outsider, we know that, but I'd be very surprised if Gethin doesn't win from the way he's been looking in the gym. Martin's a very laidback kid who's usually the worst sparrer in the world because he doesn't let his shots go. You never know how seriously he's taking it. When he fought in Vegas, it meant nothing to him. For (stablemate) Dean Harrison it was the best thing ever!
But in prep for this he's right on top of his game. He's a very tough lad from a very tough family. He can take a tremendous shot and could go 20 rounds; shame is, it takes him five to wake up! He can also box and has a good boxing brain.
For several years he boxed with injuries but they discovered one kidney was bigger than the other and they've addressed it. Though he's 29, he's still improving every year.
Ben Murphy is a very good brawler but, unless there's a cut, he definitely doesn't have the power to stop Martin Gethin and he'll have to take some heavy whacks himself as he tries to get inside. If Gethin gets beat, it'll be because he allowed himself to get outhustled. If he uses his brain and shows his quality, I see him winning quite comfortably.
Shane McPhilbin over 10 rounds (for the vacant English cruiserweight title) is a big step up for Chris Keane but I believe he could win the British title easily. Sometimes it takes a good whack to wake him up but he can really bang and, for a big lad, has a very good boxing brain. He just needs more experience and hopefully we've taken this at the right time. Shane's a tough, seasoned kid but only knows one way to fight.
From a personal point, what are your remaining ambitions in the sport?
To produce as many champs as I can. I'd love to develop a proper world champion. Champions mean far more to me than money.
I don't want to get my face on the tele and I never went into boxing to earn money. If money motivated me, I'd not have done 15 years with the amateurs.I'm still paying off my gym and over the past 20 years I've probably lost money to boxing rather than earned it.
It's been hard sometimes but I love the laughs, the craic, the camaraderie. It's just addictive.
Surgical update for Ryan Wright: still working away at detangling that mess of a spinal cord, but at this point there won't be a need for fusion (tentative news, so it could change). But, so far, looking about as good as we could hope for.
Subject: Is Obama Ripping Off the Mask?
July 17, 2012
Is Obama Ripping Off the Mask?
By James Lewis
American candidates for president have a predictable trajectory. They begin
by telling the party troops that they are really coming from the
honest-to-gosh right or left, and then they move steadily toward the great
fuzzy middle, so that by election time they end up sounding like Tweedle-Dum
But Obama has been going off the standard script -- most recently by
attacking capitalism in radical terms. Namely, "If you've got a business --
you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
Democratic senators are reportedly "horrified" by Obama's behavior.
Last week, an Obama surrogate was accusing Mitt Romney of being a felon.
This is a new low in presidential hardball politics -- at least since LBJ
accused Barry Goldwater of wanting to explode nuclear weapons on little girls
Ben Shapiro of Breitbart reports the following Obama transcript:
Is any of this (use of tax havens) actually illegal?
It appears not, but it's impossible to know for sure because Romney refuses
to release enough information to let people make their own judgments.
... Last time I checked, ... there is a presumption of innocence[.] But Obama
needs no evidence. He just needs innuendo.
"And when did you stop beating your wife?" to quote the old legal joke. But
this is not a joke.
If Breitbart is right, the Obama campaign is actually raising money in China
-- quite possibly from non-U.S. citizens, since its controls are lax. Not a
legal move, even if it's ignored by the Federal Election Commission.
The Obama campaign may be committing felonies while accusing others of being
felons. Hardball politics isn't new, but crazy hardball tends to be
self-defeating. It reflects rage and desperation rather than cold
calculations. Obama now seems to be playing crazy ball.
In 2008, Obama ran as a messianic figure, come to bring peace and love to
earth. But in 2012 he is tearing off the mask bequeathed by Saul Alinsky and
his other radical left mentors.
I think there might be two reasons. First, Obama really is an ideological
radical -- there's no honest doubt about it anymore, given his expressed
anti-capitalist and anti-constitutionalist views, his solid phalanx of
radical associates throughout life, and his repeated assault on everyday
Americans. And while Obama is the most convincing liar since Bill Clinton, he
has essentially given up on hiding his radicalism.
That is hugely important.
A second reason why Obama seems to be wandering off script is his genuine
rage and anger toward those who dissent from his radical orthodoxy. Early in
his administration, Obama gave one of those televised White House seminars on
the economy. Congressman Paul Ryan was there, and instead of listening
obediently, the way Republicans are supposed to, he presented a clear and
articulate argument against federal overspending. Obama was caught
unprepared, and right there on live TV, he suddenly looked enraged. That
used-car salesman smile was gone. For a moment, we could see the man behind
the Carteresque grin. He didn't look kind and compassionate.
You can bet that Vladimir Putin and Hu Jin Tao played and replayed that clip
over and over again to see the real Obama. All the novice KGB thugs are being
trained on this one.
(Look at this photo of Obama's soulmate, Elizabeth Warren, and you can see
the identical rage.)
The Daily Kos loves this collectivist Obama stuff. But the Kosovars are
already in his back pocket. Why is Obama echoing the mad-dog left three and a
half months before November?
One reason could be money. The Great O is far behind his money-raising record
from 2007 and 2008. But in 2008, Obama kept his real feelings for the private
delight of behind-the-scene fund-raisers.
Right now Obama's denial of business achievements is on the White House
website (above). Americans who don't hate business (70-80 percent) are not
comfortable with those words. If the people in the Romney campaign are smart,
they'll run that one over and over toward November. Add a few occupistas
running wild in business districts around the country, and they will add
Obama's smiling endorsement of those idealistic kids, just to hammer the
point home. Obama is his own worst enemy.
In emotional terms, Obama and Warren are "leaking" their real feelings while
trying to cover them up. Popular narcissists can be devastatingly nice and
charming, until they run into opposition. Then their real feelings leak out.
In his heart of hearts, President O is always enraged at the American people
-- those bitter clingers -- but this time it's personal. Gone is the smiling
messiah, and in his place we see a persecutory personality, a real
witch-hunter who may lose the election but won't pass up a chance to scourge
this country with the whip of righteousness, to tell us what he really
thinks. Under the smiling mask, Obama is Rev. Jerry Wright.
By Labor Day, when all the football fans and SUV moms take their eyes of the
TV, they will see it, too.
If Obama doesn't hammer his rage and anger home to the voters, Romney should
do it for him. This is self-destructive strategy. You don't end a campaign by
ranting at the voters.
Obama is not a conventional politician. For sure, he loves the trappings, Air
Force One, the chance to finally lord it over other people. But Obama is
dyed-in-the-wool ideologue. In the last four years he's changed everything
except his deeply embedded beliefs. America is still the real enemy.
Obama has become Jimmy Carter, who's gotten more and more stuck in trying to
justify his catastrophic policies from 30 years ago.
Jimmy Carter is still trying to be president. Emotionally, he can't come to
terms with his defeat in 1978. That's why he can't leave the public stage, or
stop defending his defeatist policies toward the most hardened enemies of
If Obama is defeated in this election, chances are that he will become
another Jimmy Carter -- a "bitter clinger" if ever there was one.
The left has always thought long-term. Radical leftism is a utopian ideology,
not a normal American political party. The left wants to turn America
upside-down -- the original meaning of "revolution," from Copernicus' book on
the rotation (revolving) of the earth
So far, America is still rightside-up, but Obama won't stop if he is
defeated. On the contrary. To keep his stuck beliefs intact, Obama will have
to redouble his missionary efforts.
If that happens, Obama the "bitter clinger" will haunt the Democratic Party
'til the end of his days.
Which would be a kind of poetic justice.
(Obama image by Otto Veblin)

He has brought us inner strength by watching how brave he has been through all his surgical ordeals.He makes us laugh with his sense of humor an his friendly always inclusive persona like a breath of sunshine in a dark room. His charitable ways,one time making my wife pull over to help a homeless woman on US 19. He ended up buying her a water and a cake an he gave her the change from his 20 dollar bill,like his Uncle John,doing what would please God first an not himself. Rhino has been blessed to have been guided,mentored an been given words of encouragement by some wonderful people in his life. His Grandpa Hogan, Father Wright,Titi Cookie, Coach Marty, Dr. Beck & his staff an the many team mates & parents that gave an continue to give support to Rhino as he strives to beat this disease.

Just 16 abstentions are needed to give Boehner the boot. May the bottom of the fiscal cliff be the last thing he (figuratively) sees. Boehner needs 218 votes to become Speaker again. Seeing as there are 233 House Republicans next Congress, and assuming no Democrats would vote for Boehner as Speaker, if 16 conservative Republicans abstain from voting, Boehner wouldn’t regain the Speakership.
