It was supposed to be a positive teaching moment for the 37 youths and their adult chaperones scheduled to attend the play, “To Kill A Mockingbird”, at the Jewish Community center in Overland Park Sunday afternoon. Instead, members of the Youth Council and ACT-SO members of the Johnson County branch of the NAACP learned a harsh lesson that won’t go away.
Sometimes it takes a miracle to erase the religious and racial hatred some in society still carry towards Jews and African Americans.
Sunday was a dark day for Kansas City. Three individuals were murdered at the hands of a white Supremacist at two different location with Jewish ties. One of those killed was a 14-year-old high school student at the Blue Valley High school  who was an aspiring singer. William Lewis Corporon, 69, grandfather of Reat Griffin Underwood, were both gunned down in the parking lot of the Jewish Community center. The other victim, Terri LaManno, was visiting her mother at the Village Shalom home, but was murdered outside the senior facility. She was at the facility to visit her mother
The suspect, Frazier Glenn Cross — aka F. Glenn Miller, a 73-year-old white male from Aurora, Mo., has a long history of religious and racial hatred. In 1987, federal agents found Miller and three men in an Ozark mobile home filled with hand grenades, automatic weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Miller tried unsuccessfully to run for U.S. House in 2006 and the U.S. Senate in 2010. Miller founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina. He was the group’s “grand dragon” but he was sued for operating an illegal paramilitary group using intimidation tactics against blacks in North Carolina. Miller also founded another White Supremacist group, the White Patriot Party.

Former School Board candidate Joseph Jackson has filed an ethics complaint over a mailer that hit voters’ mailboxes right before the School Board elections on April 8.
Jackson filed his complaint after he lost the election by a margin of 2 to 1 to Ms. Melissa Robinson for the Sub-district 4 seat that he held for the past four years. He did not win one precinct.
“The flyer was character assassination and played a major role in the outcome of the 4th sub-district election,” he said.
“It was very hard for me to see resident after resident walk to the polls carrying this flyer with a big X marked across the flyer,” Jackson said.
“Anyone that knows me will tell you I have two passions — children and neighborhoods. I have been a tireless advocate from the moment I was elected to the school board.  I fought to ensure that special needs children were not moved from Delano to East annex when the building had problems that would be harmful to students with special needs.
