Great-Grandmother Gets Tree Branch Removed from Home

Last night I heard the devastating news of a elderly blind woman, who’s home had been struck by a large tree branch couldn’t afford to get it repaired. The 68-year-old great-grandmother is blind and is not capable to get around well, but heard the rumble as the tree came crashing down on her home in Southwest Atlanta. Mrs. Carolyn Tucker couldn’t afford the $2,000 to have the tree removed because she did not have home insurance. Imagine the rainy weather coming in and the cold front of the Fall season blowing into the home. Many people heard this heartbreaking story and a tree company, Don’s Tree Service, decided to donate their service to Mrs. Tucker. She is very grateful for the service they donated.

Congratulations Jasmine Hilton

Recognizing a well-known senior of Frederick Douglass High School, Jasmine Hilton will be making her debut across the stage Saturday at the Atlanta Civic Center as well as 200+ seniors.

Since her childhood, Jasmine has been in love with music. From the soothing sounds of Jazz or the rhythmical lyrics of Hip-Hop, music has always been a favorite pass time. Since the age of 12, she has also played the clarinet with Douglass High marching band. Under the construction of her favorite band director, Mr. Moody, Jasmine has learned the field of music through early and late practices to the annual Honda Battle of the Bands.

Saturday will end the chapter of high school, but will open the door to a collegiate start. Jasmine has been excepted into Savannah State University and the University of West Georgia, where she plans to attend UWG and study Psychology and Environmental Science.

As your elder cousin, I am very proud of you. You’ve accomplished so much and there is much more in store for the future. I know you will stay on the right track, work hard, and make me proud to see you walk across the college stage in 2015!

Shots Fired at Capital Homes Reunion

The annual Capital Homes Day Reunion turned chaotic when shots were fired leaving six injured including a one-year-old.

This day is meant for all the fallen victims of the Capital Homes community whom were killed by violent actions. The message stands clear that violence is not the key to solving problems, but I assume no one received the message. Two men began to argue while one of the men reached for his firearm. He was told to put down the gun when three unidentified cars pulled up and began to fire shots. Six people are considered injured including a one-year-old child who was shot in the foot. He is placed at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in critical conditions.

I just want to know when will men become men? Just fight, dap each other, and move on! Praying for the victims who were shot and trampled at the event and remember to always play it safe!

Spelman Class of 2011 Encouraged By Michelle Obama

Today, the women of Spelman College turned the tassel and received their degrees. The almost 10,000 crowd of proud parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles were not only there to watch the commencement march, but to also seek a glimpse at First Lady Michelle Obama. Looking around the crowd, someone point actress Phylicia Rashad at the commencement. The First Lady was welcomed with an uproar of applause and graced the crowd with a beautiful smile. Although I was not there I know the message will live on to the graduates and crowd as many of us will be graduating in 2012.

First lady Michelle Obama, right, reacts to the uproar of applause before giving her commencement speech.

Atlanta: Home or Foe?

The capital, the lime-life, the South’s Hollywood: Atlanta, GA. In a city where tomorrow’s new face could make millions on billboards or pan-handle on the corner of Five Points. Coming from a place where fashion rules and attitudes clash, being accustomed to “the city” only brings what? A check? Lunch at Beni’s? “Pulling up”? The life is fun for moments, but who really wants to stay here forever? Let’s get real and make money! The kind where you can receive a tax deductible. Hey, it’s an option.

I’ve had some of the best and worst days here in Atlanta, but it’s time to move along and become serious about life. The nightlife will always be there, while success waits for no one!
