New 911 Operator Helps Save Her Father The First Day On The Job

Crystal Morrow’s first day as a DeKalb County 911 operator proved to be the ultimate test after the months of training she spent preparing for the job.

Then, just four hours into her day, she picked up a call from what seemed like a very familiar voice. “I heard her voice, and I saw her name pop up on the screen. I was like, ‘Wait.

Former Employee of Newark Mayoral Candidate Accused of Setting Opposing Campaign’s Bus on Fire

The race to permanently replace Cory Booker as mayor of Newark has gotten a little crazy: Right now, former Newark city council head Luis Quintana is finishing out the term that Booker left when he became New Jersey’s junior Senator, but he isn’t trying to hold onto the seat after the scheduled election on May 13. Two Democrats — activist Ras Baraka and attorney Shavar Jeffries — are running against each other for the office. In mid-February, a surveillance camera caught a man setting fire to an empty Baraka campaign bus and, for good measure, pouring sugar in the gas tank. Read more.
