CLEVELAND, Ohio-Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Pinkey Carr, a lead attorney in the Anthony Sowell Capital Murder trial who won for the State of Ohio on 82 of 83 counts against the since convicted serial killer, edged Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Lynn McLauglin Murray, who was appointed to the bench in Jan by outgoing Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland, to win a seat on that court in a close election Tuesday evening. And Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Angela Stokes, won too, trouncing nearest opponent Ed Wade and sending a clear message to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Ohio's Largest newspaper, since it unsuccessfully opted to take on Cleveland's old Black political guard and the Stokes name, obviously to no avail.

Cleveland NAACP Executive Director Stanley Miller has resigned after serving six years in the post, and amid controversy from a Black contractors group that says that Miller and Cleveland NAACP President George Forbes have done in struggling Black contractors by not speaking up about a dearth of minority contractors on the lucrative Medical Mart Project, though the major-metropolitan City of Cleveland is majority Black and roughly 67 percent minority.

Miller played his departure as a new opportunity to lead Cleveland's struggling Marcus Garvey Charter School of some 175 students, but others say he resigned under pressure and because of ongoing conflict with Forbes, including a scathing letter last week from Norman Edwards, executive director of The Black Contractors Group, a letter sent to Forbes and Miller that was copied to community leaders, Gov. John Kasich and U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown.
