CultureCow: Celebrate Juneteenth with *sigh* the Perfect Movie for the Moment

by Devin McCue, Sumner Newscow — Happy Friday. And happy Juneteenth!  If you’re just now finding out about Juneteenth, I promise you that you aren’t alone, but I also promise you it’s not your job to tell everyone you know.  This has been a holiday for literally over 100 years and the reason it isn’t a federal holiday and celebrated nationally is due to systemic racism.  So, do your part and instead of telling everyone, you know about the “new” holiday you just found out about, donate to your local chapter of Black Lives Matter or a similar cause.

Just in time for the moment in history we’re all living through, one of the best American filmmakers of all time, Spike Lee, dropped his newest joint on Netflix this week called Da 5 Bloods.  Da 5 Bloods follows a group of Black Vietnam veterans as they return to the country for the first time since their deployment to recover the body of their fallen Sergeant (squad leader? Whatever arbitrary rank the Army gave him) with an ulterior plan set in motion all those years ago.  What follows is one of Spike’s best outings in character study since Malcolm X.  The plot is fairly straight-forward without ever being predictable, but what truly shines about this movie is amazing writing that manages to flesh out each member of the bloods, led by an Oscar-deserving performance by Delroy Lindo

City clarifies the recent amendment to refuse collection

Sumner Newscow report — The following is a note of clarification from Director of Public Works Jeremy Jones on the new amendment recently passed by the Wellington City Council:


On June 16, 2020 the Wellington City Council passed Ordinance No. 4273, amending Section 38-550 of the City Code in regards to refuse collection in residential areas.  The focus of the amendment was to require that trash placed in containers that are larger than 45 gallons be in bags.

I believe the early reporting of this information may have caused some misunderstanding.  It is important to note that neither the City Council nor City staff made recommendations that our customers purchase smaller containers.  The intent is quite the opposite.  Bagged trash will be picked up by sanitation crews and eliminate the need for customers to purchase smaller containers.
