After years of refusing to replace the name Washington Redskins a change appears to be in the offing. Indeed, the Cleveland Indians have also said they aim to replace their team's name. All of this comes as the Black Lives Matter protests filled the streets in the wake of the death of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer and a renewed effort to take down old Confederate monuments. Glenn Aparicio Parry is author of a new book entitled, "Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again" which looks at American democracy through the traditions of Native Americans.

A local boy from Parkside High now has a chance to play with the Cleveland Indians.

Hunter Parsons could follow his dream after he was drafted by the ball club in the 40th round in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.

But the Salisbury right-handed pitcher had been planning on playing at the University of Maryland.

He must decide what to do by next month.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Parsons is just the latest in a number of other local names that include K.J Trader of Delmar and Daniel Cropper who was drafted out of college.
