  • For those of you who don't know....

    Tuesday morning we heard about someone who means a great deal to a lot of people. Jim Clairmont had a heart attack after coming out of a NAC meeting. He underwent triple bypass surgery yesterday morning and is now breathing on his own. His family and The Boyz would appreciate any support in prayers that you could give.

    Thank you...

      Thanks, Sticky, for the information. Jim is also a fine powwow mc and has helped mc several powwows over on Rosebud. I'm glad he could have the surgery and is recovering. He and his family will be in my prayers. Wopila.

        Has anyone heard how Jim is doing? He was supposed to MC a dance this past weekend and the family received notice of his health. Was wondering if anyone has any new info that could be passed to those of us outside the immediate family.

                Ok, so my husband is Yankton Sioux. He was born in Marty, SD on 04 FEB 1987. He was adopted when he was 4 yrs old (by these ridiculously crazy white ppl) who tell me they tried so hard to keep him in his heritage but there is zero evidence of that and they give little information about his family who...

                by OneidaDreamer
                The reason I'm posting this article is this: Bill OI'Reilly is a very public persona. I myself don't agree with a word of of Bill's. I think he's quite a powerful buffoon though. I feel he is racist in the utmost. I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has and or will when it suits him.
