CLEVELAND,Ohio- Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson (pictured) is poised to name a replacement for press secretary Andrea V. Taylor (pictured), who is resigning from the post she has held since 2007, effective Jan 1,  to return to her hometown of Detroit to work in the private sector, a spokesperson for the mayor told reporters.


The mayor is at the end of a second four-year-term and has said that he will seek reelection next year. He has not publicly named a replacement for Taylor, who is Black, though he has no Blacks in the appointed positions of law director, safety director, chief of police, chief prosecutor, EMS commissioner, chief of staff and CEO of the majority Black and impoverished Cleveland Municipal School District.

 

Jackson,66, is the third Black mayor of the largely Black major metropolitan city of Cleveland, which has roughly 400,000 people, a 2010 U.S. Census Report reveals.

By Kathy Wray Coleman, Publisher and Editor-n-Chief

WASHINGTON, D.C.- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been hospitalized with a blood clot in her head near her brain following a concussion she got after a faint spell last month.

 

Doctors said that it did not result in a stroke or a neurological problem.


A former U.S. senator representing New York who lost the Democratic primary in 2008 to current president Barack Obama and the wife of former president Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, 65, is the most admired woman in the world by some polls.


Doctors for the nation's highest ranking female federal official and the most prominent member of the president's cabinet said the blood clot was found following a routine MRI and that Secretary of State Clinton, who is being treated with blood thinners, will likely make a full recovery with release from the hospital shortly. (Editor's update: Mrs. Clinton has since been discharged from the hospital, White House press officials announced).


Hillary Clinton is stepping down as secretary of state after four years in the job with Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry nominated by the president to replace her.

Black NRA members to guest on Art McKoy Radio Show, WERE 1490 AM following Connecticut shootings, Omens Motorcycle Club to hold vigil for shooting victims, Dec 23, State Rep. Patmon pushes bills for metal detectors in schools, locks required on guns

CLEVELAND,Ohio- Community activists will discuss gun violence and gun control measures during a segment today, Dec. 23 at 5 pm on the Art McKoy University of Common Sense Show on WERE 1490 AM Talk Radio in Cleveland, a Radio One news station. The show call in phone number is 216-578-1490.

Guests for the show are Black NRA members, including Community Activist Donna Walker Brown.

At 7 pm after the show airs Walker Brown, a motorcycle club member who says she will run for Cleveland mayor next year, said that the Omens Motorcycle Club, based in the Buckeye-Woodland area on Cleveland's predominantly Black east side, will hold a vigil in front of the radio station building at Radio One, that also houses WZAK 93.1 FM,   2510 St. Clair Ave. in Cleveland. The candlelight vigil, said Walker Brown, is to remember the 20 Connecticut first graders at Sandy Hook Elementary School and six educators gunned down at the school last week by suspected shooter Adam Lanza, who then turned the gun on himself.

The shootings have reignited the national debate on gun violence and gun control.

McKoy (pictured in hat), like many Cleveland area community activists, is for gun control and is against the policies of the National Rifle Association, He says he welcomes the community discussion around the controversial issue.

Meanwhile, Ohio State Rep. Bill Patmon (pictured (D-10), a Cleveland Democrat, has introduced a  bill in the Ohio State Legislature around metal detectors in schools to protect public school children in Ohio and wants a state law with criminal penalties for parents and guardians that do not have locks on guns that get into the hands of children only to result in avoidable shooting tragedies of innocent children and other people.

"These bills are designed to protect the children in Ohio as we as state legislators are required to do," said Patmon, a junior state representative and former city council member of Ward 8 who lost a bid for mayor in 2009 against current Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.

In the wake of the deadly Connecticut shootings, the NRA has called for teachers from across the nation to have a gun for protection in every public school classroom, a radical posture by most standards but not a surprise coming from the conservative gun toting group.
