Justice Scores A Point In Missouri Federal!

On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, the Senate confirmed Ronnie White as a U.S. District Court judge for the Eastern District of Missouri with judicial commission following the next day. His long overdue confirmation arrives 15 years after his first nomination was defeated by a slim margin party-line vote in 1999.

White’s career is one marked by a deep devotion to public servitude. After earning a law degree from the University of Missouri in 1983, he worked as a public defender in St. Louis and as an attorney for a number of government offices. He also served as a representative in the Missouri House of Representatives for six years. In 1994, White was appointed judge of the Eastern District of the Missouri Court of Appeals, and one year later, he was appointed to the Supreme Court of Missouri. In 2003, White became the first African-American Chief Justice, serving in that capacity until 2005.

White is a man highly regarded in the community and his ascension to the U.S. District Court judgeship marks a momentous occasion. On behalf of the Jefferson City NAACP, we congratulate the Honorable Judge Ronnie White.

Jefferson City protesters demand end to racial prejudice

Jefferson City protesters demand end to racial prejudice: The shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson and subsequent demonstrations brought out dozens of marchers in the state capital Monday evening.

Breakfast is the best thing you can do for a child - Invite one to the 2017 NAACP MLK Freedom Fund Dinner!

Why You Should Eat a Healthy Breakfast
  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Breakfast provides you with the energy and nutrients that lead to increased concentration in the classroom.
  • Studies show that breakfast can be important in maintaining a healthy body weight.
  • Hunger sets in long before it's time for lunch, but because it's not convenient to eat properly, many people who have not eaten breakfast snack on foods that are high in fat and sugar.
  • People who skip breakfast are unlikely to make up their daily requirement for some vitamins and minerals that a simple breakfast would have provided.
  • Breakfast provides energy for the activities during the morning and helps to prevent that mid-morning slump.
Tips on Eating a Quick and Healthy Breakfast
  • Pick 2-3 foods, including at least one from each of the following food groups:
    -bread and grain (i.e.cereal, toast, muffin)
    -milk and milk product (i.e. low-fat yogurt, low-fat milk)
    -fruit or vegetable group (i.e bananas, apples, carrots)
  • Pick up portable breakfast items when at the grocery store. You should buy foods like fruit, low-fat yogurt, whole grain breakfast bars, or granola bars for those mornings when you have to eat breakfast on the go.
  • Replace or accompany that morning cup of coffee with a glass of orange juice or milk.
  • Make an omelette! You can shorten preparation time by chopping up your vegetables ahead of time.
  • Get up 15 minutes earlier.  You can fix and consume a healthy breakfast in 15 minutes or less.
  • Plan ahead to eat breakfast.  This means you should decide what you are going to eat for breakfast before the next morning.   You can save time by putting out the box of cereal or cutting up some fruit the night before.
