John A. Williams: Rethinking The Committee Person Cause In Philadelphia by Van Stone (267) 293-9201.

John A. Williams: Rethinking The Committee Person Cause In Philadelphia by Van Stone  (267) 293-9201.

John A. Williams, Committeeman, Democratic 32nd 
Ward in the 24th District

The main job of a committee person is to boost voter registration and to get registered voters to call attention to the ward’s endorsed candidate. Political offices are supposed to have much direct effect on helping voter’s lives.

Help is here.  John A. Williams and a Philadelphia Pennsylvania community have pitched in to help Philadelphia become a better city. Williams ran for the seat of City Committee person and the community voted him in on Primary Election Day 2014.    

John A. Williams won his run for Committee Person in the state of Pennsylvania election 2014.

Committeeman Williams became a Committee person partner with another elected official, the Committee Person Patricia A. Thomas to help leaders build up family in the neighborhood.  And John wants to work as a problem solver for the growth of the city especially in the 5th district where City Council President Darrell L. Clarke is representative. This includes North Central Philadelphia and Strawberry Mansion as well.

John A. Williams serves Philadelphia’s residents as a Committeeman of the Democratic 32nd Ward in the 24th District; he has been a Block Captain for over 30 years in North Philadelphia’s 1900 block of 31st street.

In fact, John A. Williams, often called "Johnny" or the "Mayor of 31st Street" by his good friends, is dedicated to the role of deterring blight and graffiti, random-crime, and unhealthy snacking. And he wants to help winning heroes and charity in the community.  Van Stone Productions (VSP) is one of the charities Johnny wants to help.  Partly because of this he will establish his own brand of restaurants.

Cooperation is also the name of John’s goal when serving, as he takes turns scanning through the neighborhood for virtually anything salvageable. But faced with serious threats in the form of neighborhood loss, degradation, lack of block captains’ support, children’s sports, trainings, and play areas, Williams keys in on the fact that the city as a whole still needs all the help it can get.

As the Philadelphia Front Page News sees it, John A. Williams, and others have the power to raise awareness to the threats facing endangered neighborhoods and the natural environment, helping us make the city of Philly a better place.

Archdiocese Of Philadelphia To Announce Fate Of 46 Parishes This Weekend

Archdiocese Of Philadelphia To Announce Fate Of 46 Parishes This Weekend

(file photo)

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Archdiocese of Philadelphia will decide the fate of 46 parishes this weekend. Whether they will merge with another parish, have no change in structure with a plan for future sustainability, or be tagged for further study. It’s the third, large round of evaluations under the Pastoral Planning Initiative.

Thirty-one parishes have closed since the process began in 2010, with 46 parishes being reviewed in this round of evaluations, which started in September. Kenneth Gavin is a spokesman for the Archdiocese, and he says the process is based on many factors.

“Every aspect of parish life. From sacramental activity, number of baptisms in a parish, number of funerals, number of marriages, looking at the number of registered parishoners, registered households. Looking at financial condition of parishes,” Gavin said.

Maya Angelou, celebrated poet and author, dies

Maya Angelou, celebrated poet and author, dies 

AP Photo
FILE - In this March 4, 2008 file photo, American poet and noevlist Maya Angelou smiles during an interview with The Associated Press in New York. Angelou has died, Wake Forest University said Wednesday, May 28, 2014. She was 86.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Maya Angelou's story awed millions. A childhood victim of rape, she broke through silence and shame to tell her tale in one of the most widely read memoirs of the 20th century. A black woman born into poverty and segregation, she recited the most popular presidential inaugural poem in history.

"I'm not modest," she told The Associated Press in 2013. "I have no modesty. Modesty is a learned behavior. But I do pray for humility, because humility comes from the inside out."

Angelou, a renaissance woman and cultural pioneer, died Wednesday at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She was 86.

"She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being. She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace," said her son, Guy B. Johnson.

Tall and regal, with a deep, majestic voice, she was unforgettable whether encountered in person, through sound or the printed word. She was an actress, singer and dancer in the 1950s and 1960s and made a brave and sensational debut as an author in 1969 with "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," which became standard (and occasionally censored) reading and made Angelou one of the first black women to enjoy mainstream literary success.

"Caged Bird" was the start of a multipart autobiography that continued through the decades and captured a life of hopeless obscurity and triumphant, kaleidoscopic fame.

The world was watching in 1993 when she read her cautiously hopeful "On the Pulse of Morning" at President Bill Clinton's first inauguration. Her confident performance openly delighted Clinton and made publishing history by making a poem a best-seller. For President George W. Bush, she read another poem, "Amazing Peace," at the 2005 Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the White House. Presidents honored her in return with a National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country's highest civilian honor. In 2013, she received an honorary National Book Award.

She called herself a poet, in love with the "sound of language," "the music in language," as she explained to the AP in 2013. But she lived so many lives. She was a wonder to Toni Morrison, who marveled at Angelou's freedom from inhibition, her willingness to celebrate her own achievements. She was a mentor to Oprah Winfrey, whom she befriended when Winfrey was still a local television reporter, and often appeared on her friend's talk show program. She mastered several languages and published not just poetry but advice books, cookbooks and children's stories. She wrote music, plays and screenplays, received an Emmy nomination for her acting in "Roots," and never lost her passion for dance, the art she considered closest to poetry.

"The line of the dancer: If you watch (Mikhail) Baryshnikov and you see that line, that's what the poet tries for. The poet tries for the line, the balance," she told The Associated Press in 2008, shortly before her 80th birthday.

Her very name was a reinvention. Angelou was born Marguerite Johnson in St. Louis and raised in Stamps, Arkansas, and San Francisco, moving back and forth between her parents and her grandmother. She was smart and fresh to the point of danger, packed off by her family to California after sassing a white store clerk in Arkansas. Other times, she didn't speak at all: At age 7, she was raped by her mother's boyfriend and didn't talk for years. She learned by reading, and listening.

"I loved the poetry that was sung in the black church: `Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt's land,'" she told the AP. "It just seemed to me the most wonderful way of talking. And `Deep River.' Ooh! Even now it can catch me. And then I started reading, really reading, at about 7 1/2, because a woman in my town took me to the library, a black school library. ... And I read every book, even if I didn't understand it."

At age 9, she was writing poetry. By 17, she was a single mother. In her early 20s, she danced at a strip joint, ran a brothel, got married and then divorced. But by her mid-20s, she was performing at the Purple Onion in San Francisco, where she shared billing with another future star, Phyllis Diller. She also spent a few days with Billie Holiday, who was kind enough to sing a lullaby to Angelou's son, surly enough to heckle her off the stage and astute enough to tell her: "You're going to be famous. But it won't be for singing."

After renaming herself Maya Angelou for the stage ("Maya" was a childhood nickname, "Angelou" a variation of her husband's name), she toured in "Porgy and Bess" and Jean Genet's "The Blacks" and danced with Alvin Ailey. She worked as a coordinator for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and lived for years in Egypt and Ghana, where she met Nelson Mandela, a longtime friend; and Malcolm X, to whom she remained close until his assassination, in 1965. Three years later, she was helping King organize the Poor People's March in Memphis, Tennessee, where the civil rights leader was slain on Angelou's 40th birthday.

"Every year, on that day, Coretta and I would send each other flowers," Angelou said of King's widow, Coretta Scott King, who died in 2006.

Angelou was little known outside the theatrical community until "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," which might not have happened if writer James Baldwin hadn't persuaded Angelou, still grieving over King's death, to attend a party at the home of Jules Feiffer, a cartoonist and writer. Feiffer was so taken by Angelou that he mentioned her to Random House editor Bob Loomis, who persuaded her to write a book by daring her into it, saying that it was "nearly impossible to write autobiography as literature."

"Well, maybe I will try it," Angelou responded. "I don't know how it will turn out. But I can try."

Angelou's musical style was clear in a passage about boxing great Joe Louis' defeat in 1936 against German fighter Max Schmeling:

"My race groaned," she wrote. "It was our people falling. It was another lynching, yet another Black man hanging on a tree. One more woman ambushed and raped. A Black boy whipped and maimed. It was hounds on the trail of a man running through slimy swamps. ... If Joe lost we were back in slavery and beyond help."

Angelou's memoir was occasionally attacked, for seemingly opposite reasons. In a 1999 essay in Harper's, author Francine Prose criticized "Caged Bird" as "manipulative" melodrama. Meanwhile, Angelou's passages about her rape and teen pregnancy have made the book a perennial on the American Library Association's list of works that draw complaints from parents and educators.

"`I thought that it was a mild book. There's no profanity," Angelou told the AP. "It speaks about surviving, and it really doesn't make ogres of many people. I was shocked to find there were people who really wanted it banned, and I still believe people who are against the book have never read the book."

Angelou appeared on several TV programs, notably the groundbreaking 1977 miniseries "Roots." She was nominated for a Tony Award in 1973 for her appearance in the play "Look Away." She directed the film "Down in the Delta," about a drug-wrecked woman who returns to the home of her ancestors in the Mississippi Delta. She won three Grammys for her spoken-word albums and in 2013 received an honorary National Book Award for her contributions to the literary community.

Back in the 1960s, Malcolm X had written to Angelou and praised her for her ability to communicate so directly, with her "feet firmly rooted on the ground." In 2002, Angelou communicated in an unexpected way when she launched a line of greeting cards with industry giant Hallmark. Angelou admitted she was cool to the idea at first. Then she went to Loomis, her editor at Random House, who was concerned the project would "trivialize" Angelou, whom called "the people's poet."

"And then I thought about it. And I thought, if I'm the people's poet, then I ought to be in the people's hands - and I hope in their hearts. So I thought, `Hmm, I'll do it.'"

She had been a professor of American studies at Wake Forest University since 1982. She was also a member of the board of trustees for Bennett College, a private school for black women in Greensboro. Angelou hosted a weekly satellite radio show for XM's "Oprah & Friends" channel.

She remained so close to the Clintons that in 2008 she supported Hillary Rodham Clinton's candidacy over the ultimately successful run of the country's first black president, Barack Obama. But a few days before Obama's inauguration, she was clearly overjoyed. She told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette she would be watching it on television "somewhere between crying and praying and being grateful and laughing when I see faces I know."

Active on the lecture circuit, she gave commencement speeches and addressed academic and corporate events across the country. Angelou received dozens of honorary degrees, and several elementary schools were named for her.

Ben Franklin Bridge.
CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Commuters between southern New Jersey and Philadelphia are in for a rough summer.

Work on the tracks and electrical systems on the PATCO Speedline will mean a less frequent schedule for the train line used by 40,000 per day and closed car lanes on the Ben Franklin Bridge, which carries trains — and 100,000 cars daily — over the D River,

“I have no choice but to catch the train because the parking is horrible and expensive over there,” Juanita King, who works as a scheduler at Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Hospital, said before she hopped on her train recently at Camden’s Ferry Avenue Station, a popular place for park-and-ride customers from Camden and Gloucester counties.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It may be a tough sell in Harrisburg, but City Council is hoping to convince state lawmakers to sign on to their revised school bailout plan.

At issue is whether $120 million in sales tax revenue should go entirely to the schools, or split in later years with the city workers pension fund. Some council members, like Curtis Jones, want the split — and Jones believes Harrisburg will agree.

“I’m a dreamer, and I’m an optimistic,” Jones says. “I have the faith that they won’t leave our children in the lurch.”

3-Year-Old Boy’s HEAD Found at Convicted Cannibal’s Home

Police in Pakistan have made a grisly discovery, finding the severed head of a three-year-old boy at the home of two men previously convicted of cannibalism.
After police were notified of an alarming smell coming from the house, police found the young boy’s head and arrested 35-year-old Mohammad Arif. Police are still on the lookout for his 30-year-old brother Mohammad Farman.
Both brothers had been convicted of cannibalism and sent to two years in prison before they were released just last year. According to authorities, they two had dug up over 100 corpses at a local cemetery and ate them.
Ameer Abdullah, the chief of the local police force, says “Residents informed police after a stench emanated from the house of the two brothers. We raided the house on Monday morning and found the head of a young boy. We have arrested one of the brothers, Mohammad Arif, and are conducting raids for the arrest of the other brother.”
Police are also looking at local cemeteries to see if any other grave sites have been disturbed.
Fakhar Bhatti, who discovered the corpse of a 24-year-old woman at the brothers’ home a few years ago, says “In the middle of the room, I saw a cooking pot which was half full of meat curry. Nearby was a wooden board, a butcher’s axe, and a large kitchen knife. Bits of fat clung to the board and the blade of the axe. It still gives me the creeps; they had chopped off one of her legs below the knee, and the other near the shin. The rest of the body was intact. The curry was made from those parts.”

Van Stone’s Philadelphia Front Page News Launches the New Online Newspaper: Delco County Front Page News at

Van Stone’s Philadelphia Front Page News Launches the New Online Newspaper: Delco County Front Page News at 

Over the last 15 years, two-thirds of the population in the Philadelphia, Pa area county has read the Philadelphia Front Page News (FPN) located online at  Popular opinion is that people who live in large counties like Philly are usually habitual readers of internet newspapers. These opinions lead the FPN to expand its web site to a second site in 2012 at and now a third at

Two years, later Hundreds of readers demanded the original publisher of the Phila. Front Page News, Van Stone, to create a newspaper primarily for and about the residents of the Delaware County pa area.  In 2014, during the month of May, Many fans of the FPN are now trying to envision the newspaper of the future as the lead source for news coverage serving both Philly and Delaware County.

So yesterday, Van Stone has announced that he launched his redesigned website POWER WVSR, a gathering place for all Delco County citizens to share stories, youth sports videos, ideas and innovations related to county transformation and community effort to be proactive. The radio station website will share its content with the new Delaware County Front Page News.

Non-profit-powered and community-driven, the site will showcase community driven, leaders of the community-generated stories about what moves hearts and minds to take action to improve the way we share both Philadelphia County and Delaware County.

The new site will feature news, both text and video, from some of Delco County’s politicians and community activist who deeply care about children.  And as reporting style goes the Delco County Front Page News will support community service leader’s impactful work in areas like transportation, education, health, public space, safety, food, business.

Remarkably, the FPN stories has always included guaranteed breaking news and local stories from reliable sources strengthening social media and helping to end harassment and abuses in Delaware County, Pa.  
Van Stone’s desire to fight a health crisis, family court crisis, gentrification crisis, troubled youth crisis, middle class crisis in Delaware County has long been successful through tough news reporting.

By launching another newspaper online about day to day countywide youth sports competition, and the drive to improve on the interactivities of Darby, Yeadon, Lansdowne, East Lansdowne, Upper Darby and the Southwest and West Philadelphia areas, to name a few, the internet news becomes a household name.  

“Many of the townships and boroughs in Delco County hope to see plans to build new community meeting places for their youth and children in partnership with the residents of Philadelphia’s largest thriving neighborhoods could gain some more steam if their news was published more often,” says Stone. “Delaware County is just too large for its residents to have to rely on maybe one or a possible well known newspaper to report the news.”

Most importantly, the new will focus on the story that all positive parents and children can learn from to make the urban way of life more vibrant, inclusive, and news making. Readers will continue to submit a story or inspiration from their city or county at

The Delco County Front Page News is excited about how leaders who commit to cross county activities such as youth football, basketball, baseball, boxing, flag football, and yes, even martial arts passions and projects will be written about with the help of both the Philly and Delco County neighbors.

Look for the names of the local community leaders and political activist in the Delco County Front Page News, as well as photos of the children they teach and reach helping cities and counties of our present and future to belong all together. This is Van Stone’s Delco County Front Page News’ opportunity to contribute to a global community of city dwellers, urban entrepreneurs, community organizers, minority dreamers and doers.

The new website has been well established as a fine media form that produces local, county, state, national and most recently international news. 

“Groundbreaking and winning ideas happen because leaders stay focused on sharing concepts, designs, and resources to spark dedication to all news worldwide,” says Stone.
