It doesn't belong in anyone's backyard. It belongs in a properly zoned area.

Operating the food pantry is definitely not the right thing to be doing in this residential neighborhood. Expanding it is even more ridiculous. Residents of the neighborhood deserve whatever privacy they can garner. This is just wrongheaded on the part of Madonna House. No matter how much good they are doing, they need to focus on their original mission of helping young mothers, and the homeless. Food…

Welcome Week festivities at Hannibal-LaGrange University this year will include a concert by Jason “Propaganda” Petty on Wednesday, August 27 at 7 pm. The event is cosponsored by WGCA. Doors open at 6:30 pm and tickets are now on sale. Prices are $10 for general admission, and $6 each for HLGU students and youth groups of 10 or more. To purchase tickets, contact Richard Medina, Student Activities Director at 636.699.9350, or via email at rmedina@hlg.edu.

Propaganda is described as dynamic, soulful, experimental, and clever, all focused on the heart of a person. With an uncompromising message intertwined with hot rhythms and beats, Los Angeles based Propaganda lyrically puts together potent relevant music that reaches across the spectrum of youth and pop culture. Bringing with him years of classroom teaching and community service experience, he is eloquently bold in the message of each song and never shies away from a strong poetic element in his music. His subject matter ranges from staying accountable to God as well as standing up boldly for one's faith both in word and in one's life.

Opening up for and performing with such groups as De La Soul, The Visionaries, Lightheaded, Ahmad & 4th Avenue Jones, and LA Symphony, and touring with none other than the Blastmaster KRS ONE, Propaganda is no stranger to live shows. Music lovers all over the country proclaim, after a Propaganda show, "He sounds like no one else out there. Nobody performs like him! His sound and style is completely his own!" Propaganda is highly respected in the LA underground scene, a familiar face in places like A Mic and Dim Lights, and the famous collective called Foundation. He is also one of the main topics of chat rooms on many Hip-Hop related sites. "Props" has gained a national and international following which has landed him in London, on Cameroon television and radio, and in Nigeria to name a few. After years of training and being the youngest member of the Los Angeles based mega crew The Tunnel Rats, he now boasts full-length albums, two feature films, countless cameo appearances and a chance to write with and perform with KRS One.

From aggressive Battle raps over Norma Jean, Face to Face and Static Lullaby guitar licks, to smooth introspective soul rhythms, to the head nodding beats and rhymes California is known for, Propaganda is the total package. He is not simply gossip and rumors. He is the truth.

The opening act will be performed by St. Louis based Christian rapper Da MAC featuring local artists Foday Mashburn and Tony Meza.

For more information about this event, contact Richard Medina, Student Activities Director at 636.699.9350, or via email at rmedina@hlg.edu.

Hannibal-LaGrange University is a four-year Christian university fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and prides itself in its traditional and nontraditional educational experience in a distinctively Christian environment.
