By CAITLIN R. KING, Associated Press Caitlin R. King, Associated Press – 54 mins ago

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – More than 700,000 people in Africa are drinking clean water today thanks to multi-platinum Christian band Jars of Clay.

The group recently met their goal of providing clean water to 1,000 African communities through the organization they founded, Blood:Water Mission, and its 1,000 Wells Project.

They're celebrating the milestone with a benefit concert at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on May 10.

"When we started out, it was kind of a lofty goal," lead singer Dan Haseltine said in a recent interview.

Over five years, they ended up raising nearly $7 million for water and sanitation projects as well as hygiene training, and they made multiple trips to Africa to see the progress firsthand.

What they found is that life with clean, accessible water is much different. Women and children no longer have to walk miles a day to draw water from a dirty source or deal with the stomach aches, skin diseases and diarrhea that comes with it.

Keyboardist Charlie Lowell described one woman who proudly showed off her smooth hands, saying they used to be dry and shriveled, but now she feels like a woman again.

"It is about health, and it is about sanitation and clean water, but just under that there's this human dignity piece," Lowell said.

The band members emphasize that water projects are all led by locals, usually the women, who decide what type of water source their village needs and how to implement it.

To raise money, the band relies largely on creative grass roots efforts.

"It's community driven in the U.S. as much as it's community driven in Africa," Haseltine said.

The band tells people that $1 can provide clean water for an African for a year. Their fans have organized read-a-thons, car washes and prom fashion shows, growing and selling tomatoes and setting up "Lemon:Aid" stands to get donations.

Haseltine even challenged people this Halloween to donate $1 for every Justin Bieber costume they saw.

Efforts like these inspired the song "Small Rebellions," the first track on Jars of Clay's latest album, "The Shelter."

Guitarist Stephen Mason said the album reflects a lot of the journey they've been on with Blood:Water, because it builds upon the idea of community and needing each other.

The band members aren't sure what their next big goal in Africa will be, but there's a feeling they've just scratched the surface.

"We may add a zero to that, make it 10,000 wells or go for another 1,000," said Mason. "The challenge with Blood:Water and with Jars is to continue to dream big about what we can do to make the world a better place, and we'll see where that story leads us next."

Tickets for the Well:Done Celebration go on sale Saturday.

Jars of Clay has sold more than 6 million albums, won three Grammys and had 17 No. 1 hits, including their breakout song, "Flood."

Jim Morrison Is Candidate for Pardon in ’69 Arrest
By DAVE ITZKOFF
Published: November 16, 2010

* “This is the strangest life I’ve ever known,” Jim Morrison sang on one of the hits he recorded with the Doors, but his afterlife continues to astound, too.

Associated Press

Jim Morrison, lead singer of the Doors, may be given a posthumous pardon in Florida.

Comment Post a Comment

On Tuesday, Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida said he would officially submit Morrison’s name to his state’s clemency board as a candidate to be pardoned for two convictions the rock star received after some outrageous behavior at a 1969 concert in Miami.

“I’ve decided that today,” Mr. Crist said Tuesday in a telephone interview. “I’ve decided to do it, for the pure and simple reason that I just think it’s the right thing to do. In some ways it seems like a tragic conclusion to a young man’s life to have maybe this be a lasting legacy, where we’re not even sure that it actually occurred. The more that I’ve read about the case and the more I get briefed on it, the more convinced I am that maybe an injustice has been done here.”

After a raucous performance by the Doors at the Dinner Key Auditorium on March 1, 1969, where witnesses said they saw a drunken Morrison expose himself, the singer was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, a felony, as well as several misdemeanors. In a 1970 trial, Morrison was convicted on charges of profanity and indecent exposure, both misdemeanors, and fined $500 and sentenced to six months in jail. But he never served the time; he was appealing the conviction when he died in Paris in 1971 at the age of 27.

Mr. Crist, a Republican-turned-independent who lost his bid for a Senate seat this month and whose term as governor expires in January, seemed to side with many Doors fans in explaining his decision to seek a pardon for Morrison. As the singer’s supporters have long argued, Mr. Crist said no documentary evidence presented at the singer’s trial showed Morrison exposing himself, and he expressed regret that Morrison had died before he could present his appeal. (Mr. Crist also noted that both he and Morrison attended Florida State University.)

“My heart bleeds for he and his family that this may not have even ever happened, yet it’s unfortunately currently part of his record,” Mr. Crist said.

A pardon for Morrison would still have to be approved by members of the Florida Board of Executive Clemency, whose four-member roster includes Mr. Crist. Its final meeting before Mr. Crist’s term expires is scheduled for Dec. 9, the day after what would have been Morrison’s 67th birthday.

Who’s a Joker? Steve Miller to Teach at U.S.C.

By DAVE ITZKOFF, The New York Times

Up until now, we’d always believed that Steve Miller’s rhyming of Texas, “facts is,” justice and taxes in “Take the Money and Run” was the most surprising turn he’d taken in his pop-music career. But the man who some call the Space Cowboy, others describe as the Gangster of Love, and still others simply call Maurice may have outdone himself by becoming an instructor at the University of Southern California.

On Thursday, the university’s Thornton School of Music said that Mr. Miller, the guitarist and front man of the Steve Miller Band, will serve as an artist in residence starting in the current term. In that capacity, he will present master classes for undergraduates enrolled in its popular-music and music-industry programs, and lead seminars on tour planning and record production as well as workshops on more specific topics like guitar tone. (Dude, ask him how he got that wah-wah sound on “The Joker”!)

I can't believe the Carrivick Sisters are still languishing on the LRC. What seems to be the problem?

I enjoyed hearing those sweet girls on BBC4. The interview starts at 35:45.
