Nationwide Screening of New Family Movie “TIMECRAFTERS The Treasure of Pirates Cove” December 6, 9, & 12

A pirate crew led by the dashing Geoffrey Pistol launches a daring mutiny, stealing away in the night. Captain Lynch awakes to find his first mate gone along with his precious treasure map and vows to chase the mutineers to the gates of Hades. As Pistol navigates a stolen vessel through a treacherous storm, a strange “Time Machine” mechanism below deck is activated and the ship disappears in a flash of swirling, blue energy. The bewildered crew awakes on the shore of the modern-day seaside town Pirate’s Cove, where they are mistaken for drunken actors. A group of four kids Josh, Brigitte, Chip and Hedge find the pirate’s treasure map and use high-tech gadgetry to decipher the clues on the ancient map while eluding their parents and some unsavory characters lurking in town. When the town’s wacky Mayor announces a plan to ditch the town’s pirate theme in lieu of a new “Dino-World” moniker the kids really need to find the lost treasure and save their town from the Mayor’s devious plans.

Article-a-Day #15: Smithsonian-The Unsolved Murder of Civil Rights Activist Harry Moore

It was late on Christmas night, 1951, but Harry and Harriette Moore had yet to open any gifts. Instead they had delayed the festivities in anticipation of the arrival of their younger daughter, Evangeline, who was taking a train home from Washington, D.C. to celebrate along with her sister and grandmother. The Moores had another cause for celebration: the day marked their 25th wedding anniversary, a testament to their unshakeable partnership. But that night in their quiet home on a citrus grove in rural Mims, Florida, the African American couple were fatal victims of a horrific terrorist attack at the hands of those who wanted to silence the Moores.

At 10:20 p.m., a blast ripped apart their bedroom, splintering the floorboards, ceiling and front porch. The explosion was so powerful that witness reported hearing it several miles away. Pamphlets pushing for voters’ rights floated out of the house and onto the street, remnants of a long fight for justice. Harry Moore had spent much of the last two decades earning the enmity of Florida’s white supremacists as he organized for equal pay, voter registration, and justice for murdered African Americans. And yet despite his immense sacrifice and the nation’s initial shock at his assassination, Moore’s name soon faded from the pantheon of Civil Rights martyrs.
