Great show, Tariq!
THE I-4 DEAD ZONE “There’s an eerie secret beneath the Highway…”
Halfway between Daytona and Orlando is a quarter-mile section of Interstate-four known to locals as the “Dead Zone.” This short span of asphalt, located in Seminole county, at the south end of the interstate bridge across the St. Johns River, has become legendary for its high number of traffic accidents. Depending on sources, there have been an estimated 1,048 to 1,740 car crashes at this location since the highway was opened in 1963 with a significant number involving fatalities. Florida State Highway Department records show that in just a 24-month period, beginning in 1995, there were 44 accidents which injured 65 motorists. State officials blamed traffic congestion for the unusual high number of crashes, but others attribute the cause to something a bit more sinister. To understand the basis for I-4 Dead Zone legend, we need to take a time-trip back in local history.Prior to 1880, this area was an untamed wilderness cut by a rutted, sand road leading to a hand-operated river ferry. In 1870, it was part of a large grant owned by Henry Sanford, head of the Florida Land and Colonization Company.
In 1886, a small railroad station was built and the area was platted into ten-acre parcels in a scheme to start a Roman Catholic colony called St. Joseph’s colony. Sanford believed that he could unload some real estate by attracting German immigrants to this colony. He appointed a Catholic priest, Felix Swembergh, to oversee the settlement. However, according to Central Florida historian, Christine Kinlaw-Best, colonization efforts ended after only four immigrant families settled there. “St. Joseph’s never got off to a good start,” said Kinlaw-Best. “In 1887, an outbreak of yellow fever wiped out four members of one immigrant family. Fearing that the fever was contagious, the bodies were buried in the woods north of the railroad. Father Swembergh was then called to Tampa to minister to victims of a yellow fever epidemic there, but he never made it back to St. Joseph’s Colony. Three days after arriving in Tampa, he succumbed to the fever, and with his death also went the information about the St. Joseph’s graves.”
The origin of the graves had long since been lost, but local tradition said the burials were a “Dutch family who had died from the fever.” Obviously, early yarn spinners had misinterpreted “Dutch” for “Deutsch,” meaning German. According to traditional accounts, Mr. Hawkins leased his land to other farmers and warned them about tampering with the little burial plot. One farmer tried to remove the rusty, wire fence from around the graves and on the same day, his house burned down. In the early 1950s, a small boy tried to dig up one of the graves and the next night he was killed by a drunk driver who was never identified or apprehended. Weird things also happened in the Hawkins’ home, which sat at the edge of the field. Allegedly, the Hawkins’ home burned down after Mr. Hawkins removed the nearly rotted wooden markers.
After Mrs. Hawkins blamed the fire on the graves, Mr. Hawkins quickly replaced the markers. When they built a new house, they were plagued with episodes of unexplained activity involving children’s toys. A small child’s rocker would rock by itself and toys would roll around as if pushed by unseen hands. With all the weird shenanigans, the Hawkins field became locally known as the “Field of the Dead” This was oral folk history until 1999 when an old brochure for the St. Joseph’s Colony was found by historian Christine Kinlaw-Best. This discovery sent her on a quest that ultimately exposed the ill-fated St. Joseph’s colony and its connections with the four graves.
In 1959, the Hawkins farm was purchased by the government for constructing Interstate-four. During surveying for the right-of-way, the four, nameless graves were marked for relocation, however they were never moved. In September 1960, fill dirt was dumped on the graves to elevate the new highway. This is where history gets weird. At this same instant, hurricane Donna was slamming into South Florida. Rated as one of Florida’s most powerful hurricanes of recent times, Donna plowed her way across the tip of Florida aiming for the Gulf of Mexico. Then, on the very day that the graves were covered with fill dirt, Donna changed her direction near Tampa and headed northeast across the peninsula. Strangely enough, her deadly path paralleled the surveyed route of the new highway. The big storm’s eye passed over the graves at midnight on September 10, 1960. Donna’s fury, the worst experienced in Central Florida in generations, interrupted highway construction for nearly a month.
On the day that Interstate-four was opened to traffic, a tractor-trailer truck hauling a load of frozen shrimp became
I Think she needs a place to live.
Another good show. I particularly like the way you checked the women who had a problem with you asking about the background of the father of the unfortunate child who was killed by the gator in Orlando Florida. I thought it was interesting of you to correlate the energy and karma in Orlando to the Trayvon Martin murder. Whether that is right or wrong that is some food for thought. When you said how racist think about helping or speaking out on some injustice being applied to black folks, but actually take action on things as they relate negatively upon another white person, I felt that. You sure articulated that in an appropriate fashion. Because we need to let our so call white friends know the power they have under a white supremacy driven system that blacks don't have. So hopefully more of our so call white friends will play their part in bringing about the justice for all their forefather's wrote into the Constitution that is suppose to govern our society. Not that we are waiting on it, but it's our answer to combat their what do you think about the O.J. trial bull shit question. As if they expect us all to agree with police and prosecutorial misconduct. Or to agree with double jeopardy being ok for a black man as long as they can create the proper distance for us to not accept the man as human.
Next your Thot Stare and non-verbal communication is slightly over most of not only your audience's head( who many are very intelligent and wise) but most of society in general. If there were more people on the level of over-standing the non-verbal and subliminal messages often used there wouldn't be so much need for folks to purchase my books "Win Anyway", Knock the devil out", and "The Ultimate Master of life" book and online certification program coming very soon.
Keep up the good work as it lightens a lot of our loads. And know we will soon be returning the favor so your diligent work is not done in vain.
That white cop in Florida used a combination of the Donald Sterling and Terry Bollea defense. He can't be racist because he has sex with a black woman. And Black people made him do it through rap music.
If people remember, that SAE fraternity tried the same trick when they got busted doing their racist chant. Even though that chant was almost a 100 years old, that alleged wife-beater Bill O'Reilly blamed rap music. And sure enough, a suspected negro bed wench and a black pastor were right there to back up the racist fraternity.
Somehow the only power Black people have is to force white people to scream out nigger.
I keep saying this but when someone gets busted for being anti-semitic, you never see a jew behind him at a press conference. Mel Gibson and that fashion designer Galliano were on their own. Not one jew in the entertainment and fashion industry has gone on record to support either one. And Whoopi Goldberg does not count.
And you people know why. I wouldn't stand with one of my non-black "friends" in that circumstance. If I don't use slurs. They don't either. That should be the standard. Not this lowest common denominator slumming these dirty whites like to use.
MLK warned about the white moderates, liberals and progressives in his Letters from a Birmingham Jail. Malcolm X warned about the same group. ""Mike" from the ustream is a classic example of this.
Actually, come to think of it, if people look up the history of this website, I think that same Mike posted a few times and went at it with a few people. Yeah. I think Mike posted here a few times. The talking points were similar, I have black friends. etc.
And there is a Mike who posts how "down" he is on Tariq's YouTube and how the problem is economics and not white supremacy.
Holler if you hear me. If you remember "Mike" from the comments section on this site and YouTube. He definitely had the vibe of the white who turns on you in second the minute you put a toe off of the plantation.
Interesting that JetBlue and Mark Cuban can allocate real money and real resources to support a specific group in Orlando after that tragedy but Black people are shamed into never demanding anything specific because we should just get over it and what about black-on-black crime.
Black people need to understand that we are 100% on our own with no allies, just adversaries. Specific legislation and funding goes to white women, latinos, jews, natives and gays. But when it comes to Black people, the system of white supremacy just knows how to identify us for punishment.
Reading up on Cuban's donation to the LGBT community in Dallas, I don't see any of their leaders trying to share any of that wealth with the Black community. Part of the gay agenda must have been to deny the existence of a gay agenda because those people sure have figured out how to get legislative and economic resources in less than one generation. I don't see anyone in pop or political culture doing anything similar for all of the prison and police abuses Black people are suffering. I don't think the Black people in Flint, MI got anything close to this attention. Damn.
yo whats up they call me dj too fly and pretty much i have weekly radio hiphop show where i play exclusive rare real hiphop music most people never heard before from artist from the past to the present so checkout this week show
I thought your network (which i consider a part of mine, and mine yours) should watch this clip from Ali to the very end. Of course Ali was also a man of action, and he said a lot more than this, so I would encourage everyone to pull up more Ali speeches on Youtube.
This was an epic show, the thot stare is real. When I get them now, I avoid the casters like the plague. This one thot/bad luck female oral skills made me bust so hard, I immediately passed out... and gave her five dollars when I finally woke up! Tariq is right, that chick made me trick, and that never happens -- even before I listened to the show or read the books...
She was the one I told yawl about that died of pancreatic cancer after her husband found out their four year old daughter wasn't his
Classic show. Thought it'd be wack about Curry but that was funny and insightful. Peace.
Obviously I believe in energy in the scientific sense, not sure if I do in the Karmic sense though.
If it were real white people, who have committed more atrocities than all races combined and multiplied would not be in the prosperous positions they are in.
The club shooting in Orlando was almost exclusively melanated people... Latino melanated people (who were likely anti-black) but melanated people nonetheless, not whites.
Also, if it were bad Karma what happens to Zimmerman? If anything he seems to be the luckiest, most untouchable mother f*cker on Earth.
Those are some good points. But you have to not underestimate the power of the opposite of good. Evil is in power for the moment. And the moment may seem like forever but don't ever get it twisted. The world is in constant motion. Evil can't prevent the world from turning. So I'm not sure I would necessarily just call it karma. But what goes up must come down, it's a universal law. And since time is a manmade concept it appears to be taking longer than it actually is. Stay tuned ! Good will eventually replace evil and return to ruling for eternity... once the manmade sand in the hour glass runs out.
