Redd (pastor of the St. James CME Church [now, 2009, the Florida Tax Watch headquarters on Bronough Street]) protested segregated seating on Tallahassee city buses by sitting in the middle instead of at the back of the bus. This action ended a boycott of nearly seven months, brought on by the arrest of two FAMU women students for sitting beside a white woman. As a result of the boycott, 21 members of the Inter Civic Council were convicted on charges of operating an illegal transportation system set up as a car pool without a franchise.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, FL- The Charlotte Engineering and Aerospace Institute had an experimental Acey Ducey P-70 aircraft donated by a retiring pilot at the Punta Gorda airport.

Several of the students in the program with guidance from Instructor Stephen Nowell helped in the movement of the donated aircraft from the North hangars to the South hangars. They had to remove the wings and transport the aircraft by trailer to the new hangar. The move was a success and so was the learning experience!
