Bookcover

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — Goal Driven Women by author Yales Smith is a book that was written for women who need inspiration, motivation, and transformation in their lives. Recently released, the book, according to Smith, was an honor to write because women have played a very pivotal part in all of his successful accomplishments.

Smith comments, “By writing this book, I would like to say thank you to all of the wonderful women in the world. Without these goal driven women in the world, the world would be in turmoil.”

The book tells a story about women from a man’s perspective, and Smith firmly believes that it will be inspiring for both women and men. He comments, “This is a book primarily written for women however; men will gain a great deal of knowledge as well. Sometimes in life there are things that need to be said, and often times they have to be written in a book. This happens to be one of those occasions.

Smith is giving away a chance for readers to win $1,000, if they can be the first one to crack the code within the book. In addition, a portion of all proceeds from book sales will go to support breast cancer awareness.

POPSICLE GOES TO CHURCH: EXCITING NEW STORYBOOK TEACHES CHILDREN ABOUT FAITH AND BELIEVING IN GOD

— With faith forming an important part of her own life, writer Cristal Baker shares her wisdom with others, in her new children’s book. —


Bookcover

Bridgeport, CT (BlackNews.com) — Pre-schoolers and young children now have a new way to learn about faith, thanks to a book release by Cristal Baker. The Connecticut-based writer is proud to announce the release of Popsicle Goes to Church, a storybook with faith and God at its heart. The book takes readers on a journey with a friendly five year-old girl. As with any good story, there’s a twist – her faith, determination and love of her sick puppy gets her into a bit of a pickle.

“Don’t worry, everything turns out well in the end,” says Baker, herself a committed Christian and strong follower of God’s word. She continues, “However, along the way, children will have a compelling opportunity to learn about faith and the importance of believing in God. It’s important that the idea of faith isn’t allowed to dwindle as time progresses. Therefore, I have attempted to re-connect with young children in a fun and engaging way.”

Critics praise Baker and her work for its efforts in re-instituting children with the Christian faith. As the author explains, her love of children wouldn’t exist had God not blessed her with their gift. “Every child is special and every child is valuable. Therefore, it’s vitally important that no child is denied the opportunity to explore faith, Christianity and ultimately, the existence of God,” she concludes.

Popsicle Goes To Church is available now from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Tolling Texans


A series on the growth of toll roads and lanes around the state.

Nearly 11 years ago, Gov. Rick Perry offered a vision for Texas that was covered in toll roads.

At a news conference in Austin, Perry delivered the first of hundreds of pitches for the Trans-Texas Corridor, a 4,000-mile network of privately operated toll roads, railroad tracks and utility lines that would stretch across the state. The projected timeline for the project: roughly 50 years. The price tag: $175 billion.

Texas Democrats See Path to Medicaid Expansion

by Becca Aaronson December 3, 2012

Despite Gov. Rick Perry’s firm opposition to a key tenet of federal health reform — expanding the state’s Medicaid program for those with low incomes — Texas Democrats remain optimistic that the 2013 legislative session can yield a deal that brings in billions in additional federal dollars.

It will be a tough sell: No Republican lawmakers have gone on record supporting the Medicaid expansion, which would add an estimated 1.8 million Texans onto the joint state-federal health plan by 2022.

But state Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, said fiscal conservatives have an incentive to reach an agreement “because the alternative is going to cost us much more economically and dig a much deeper hole in our budget.”
