TO: Reno-Sparks NAACP members and friends

Three obituaries turned into four on a transcendent Sunday.

Rest in Peace, Elder William Moon (1932-2017)
We have just been informed of the passing of Elder William Moon, 85. The former Branch president left this plane on Sunday, June 25, after a short illness. His family says that he passed away peacefully at his Reno home. Bill Moon served two years as President of NAACP Reno-Sparks Branch No. 1112 in 1991-92. His wife, Jane Moon, is the longtime branch scholarship committee chair and has served as branch treasurer and secretary. Both are NAACP life members and sit on
the Branch executive committee.

Mr. and Mrs. Moon were awarded the Reno-Sparks NAACP Dedication and Service Award at the 2015 Freedom Fund Banquet.

His memorial service will be conducted at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 8, 2017, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Reno North Stake, 2505 Kings Row, 89503. William Moon was an lder in the LDS Church. Visitation is scheduled from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. PDT Friday, July 8, at Walton's Funeral Home, 875 W. 2nd Street, Reno. Remembrances may be posted at WaltonsFuneralHomes.com/

Among his numerous civic activities, he was named to the Reno Planning Commission in 1980 and for many years served on and chaired the City of Reno Civil Service Commission. In 2013 he was given the Humanitarian Award at the Interfaith Community Memorial Service.

Please monitor this website for additional information as it becomes available. Our sincere condolences go out to his wife and family.

            UPDATED 7-6-2017 — REMEMBERING BILL MOON, THE MAN AND THE LIFE

On June 26, some Branch members tried to be in two places at once.

Rest in Peace, Ernest W. Mack, 1957-2017
The homegoing celebration of Ernest W. Mack, 59, took place at Greater Light Christian Center, 2400 W. 7th St., Reno, NV 89503. Visitation was at 9:00a.m., service at 10:00. Mr. Mack was the brother of Reno-Sparks NAACP Executive Committee Member Bertha Mullins, a longtime branch mainstay. Here is Mr. Mack's official obituary.

Rest in Peace, Jordan Keith Buggs, 1996-2017
Also at 10:00 a.m., Little Flower Church at Kietzke and Plumb Lanes, Reno 89502, hosted the memorial of Jordan Keith Buggs, 21. His mother, Jenny Martinez, is a friend of the Branch and sits on that same Reno Civil Service Commission once chaired with distinction by Elder Moon. Here is the young man's official obituary.

And finally at a time of finalities,

WE STAND ON HIS SHOULDERS

Eddie B. Scott, 1928-2017

Branch Executive Committee Member Rev. William C. Webb will conduct Mr. Scott's memorial service at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 30, 2017, at Reno's Second Baptist Church, 1265 Montello Street, 89512. A reception will be held at the church immediately thereafter. Private inurnment will be conducted at Mountain View, 435 Stoker, Reno, NV 89503. Here is the formal obituary of one man who re-made Nevada law and practice at a time when civil rights advocacy could cost your life.
Just added:
Historic photo of the signing into law of the landmark 1961 Nevada Civil Rights Act.

Update: From Barbwire by Barbano in the 7-5-2017 Sparks Tribune: Eddie Scott was remembered last Friday at Reno's Second Baptist Church. The highlight came in remarks by veteran newsman Ed Pearce, asked by Scott himself to say a few words. Pearce's entire text will be posted at RenoSparksNAACP.org/

Requiescant in pace.

Words of Wisdom—>


    "America fought the Civil War to end forced, unpaid labor and this country still suffers from the bitter after-effects." —
Mike Pilcher, President, Northern Nevada Central Labor Council/AFL-CIO

    "We discovered fossil fuels which allowed us to replace slavery with fossil fuels. That's what China and India and other countries want to do now. But if they do it the way we did, we're all going down together." — Environmentalist Bill McKibben, former head of NASA's Goddard Institute of Space Studies, Rolling Stone Magazine, 12 Jan. 2017

 

    "You can say there's no such thing as slavery, we're all citizens. But if we're all citizens, then we have a task to do to make sure that that, too, is not a joke. If some citizens live in houses and others live on the street, the Civil War is still going on. It's still to be fought and regrettably, it can still be lost."
— Dr. Barbara Fields featured on Ken Burns' The Civil War miniseries, PBS 1990

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
Most law enforcement officials at NAACP Tri-State Conference oppose gun show purchase background checks
Barbwire by Barbano / Expanded from the 9-20-2016 Sparks Tribune



NAACP endorses closing gun show background check loophole

Reno, Nev. (8 Sept. 2016) — At its regularly scheduled monthly meeting, the Reno-Sparks NAACP unanimously endorsed passage of statewide Question One on the November ballot. The measure would require background checks on all firearm purchases made at the state's many gun shows.

The Branch allowed fair presentation of both sides of the issue. At its overflowing Police and Guns Forum on July 14, Washoe County Sheriff Chuck Allen presented the pro-gun/anti-background check point of view. Most of those voting on Sept. 8 were present in July.

The members were informed that the national NAACP platform on criminal justice calls for universal background checks (1, 2), and that the Nevada balloting addresses only a portion of gun sales.

Question One is not be confused with Washoe County's Question WC-1 which would raise sales taxes for school construction and maintenance. WC-1 would apply solely to Reno-Sparks-Washoe K-12 schools, where the background checks question applies statewide.

Opposition to cutting phone service to the poor and elderly
Public Utilities Commission of Nevada Docket No. 16-03021

As it has been trying in other states, AT&T wants to remove itself as telephone provider of last resort, reasoning that wireless Internet will serve everyone. Not so. Many rural residents, lower income people and senior citizens have no cel-phone or wireless web service. Cable TV-based phone service goes down when cable goes down and thus crashes 911. This proposal will make the low-income LIFELINE RATE a thing of the past. Enabling legislation was lobbied under the radar in the 2013 Nevada Legislative Session. I move that the Branch oppose removing AT&T as provider of last resort and support repeal of Assembly Bill 486 of the 2013 Legislative Session.

— Passed unanimously at the general membership of the Reno-Sparks NAACP on May 12, 2016.

This victory to expand and protect voter enfranchisement regardless of income is thus very welcome news.
