Our April Print Issue features a profile on Patrice Williams, a Corcoran track start known as “The Silent Bullet.”
The issue also reflects on the contributions of our late board member John A. Young, who passed away at the end of February. He joined the board shortly after our initial launch party in 2010 and was an active member supporting our community newspaper.
Also in the issue read a special guest column by youth from Pretty Girls Rock about bullying, hear updates on expansion plans for the Mary Nelson Youth Center and get to know Syracuse Grows and Syracuse Community Geography.
The April print issue will be out this weekend or you can download a full pdf here.
Probably inspired by three parallel verses in the Bible (Matthew 12:25, Mark 3:24-25 and Luke 11:17), the English political philosopher Thomas Hobbes wrote back in 1651, “A kingdom divided in itself cannot stand.”
In the South Side community of Pioneer Homes, the question is whether a neighborhood divided cannot stand. It has been partitioned for 47 years out of its 74 years of existence. It’s still standing, but this might change soon, at least for its buildings that are immediately adjacent to the Interstate 81 expressway.
The Stand is sad to share that board member John A. Young passed away Feb. 27.
I first met John four years ago at The Stand’s launch party before our very first print issue came out. He was enthusiastic about our community newspaper project and eager to be a part of it. John quickly joined our board in 2010 and began to bring ideas and outreach to the project.
John was a U.S. Army veteran, honorably serving his country for 26 years, and served as a photojournalist at the Pentagon. His journalism experience and photography skills played a major role in his efforts at the paper. He was eager to share story ideas and provide photography tips at our annual photo walks.
