The battle to claim a City Council seat in Long Beach's 7th District continued this week as candidate Mike Donelon, who trailed front-runner Tonia Reyes Uranga by just seven votes, announced he is seeking a recount. Uranga held a 29-vote lead on election night June 7, but after the City Clerk's office counted some provisional ballots and late absentee votes Friday, Uranga led Donelon, 2,926 to 2,919. Donelon announced plans to seek a recount after the City Council certified the results Tuesday.

On a recent steamy Saturday evening, 11 members of Deborah Rae Wright's book club — black, white, Indian and Jewish women — gathered in her meticulously restored Craftsman home on the rundown west side of the Mississippi capital. The topic was 1960s-era Jackson and "The Help," the hit movie set here. As cicadas chirped and wine flowed, sensitive personal stories of the segregationist era and more recent racial affronts poured forth, and anger and frustration bubbled up. Lee Harper, a 51-year-old African American restaurant owner, recalled how her mother worked as a maid for white employers from sunup to sundown, six days a week, and hated every minute of it. "I cried a lot in the movie, mostly because I thought of her," said Harper.
