PUBLISHER’S NOTE What I am most excited about in this issue is it features the first male model to grace the cover, GQ Kenny Lane. If I could give advice to anyone in the fashion industry it would be to follow your dream and know that the fashion and entertainment world will always have a door of opportunity open to you; but you must have the courage to find it and walk through it. Every model needs to stay true to themselves, find out what their unique qualities are; and showcase them through whatever social media app that you choose. It’s Instagram today, but it will be something else tomorrow. So, as long as you’re being authentic to who you are and showcasing your talents on whatever piece of technology that’s hot, then you’re good. I chose to celebrate Black History month and International Women’s Month, to honor the legacy and a pioneer in the fashion industry, Dr. Ophelia DeVore-Mitchell, who paved the way for many black women and men in the fashion and entertainment industry. Black history month is a special time for me, a time to celebrate my heritage, and show homage to others who have paved the way; as they struggled to achieve the American dream.

THE EPITOME OF A SECOND CHANCE Country music artist, Denaro Cook a 43-year-old resident of Little Rock, Arkansas developed his love and passion for music while serving 18 years in prison. He had spent half of his life incarcerated.

Denaro has been a free man for seven years, he is the epitome of a second chance. He has obtained his Class A CDL license and is employed by the city of Little Rock as a truck driver for sanitation department. He is the founder of a non-profit organization “Ones Who Have Overcome” (OWHO), and he is the CEO of a book publishing company/multi-media (Cookbook Publications). Denaro is also a motivational speaker and the host of a YouTube show, “Prison Chronicles” there you will find raw and uncut episodes of real ex-cons, real prison stories. Real Life! Ex-inmates come together, not to talk about the reform and rehab part of prison, but the REAL LIFE, behind the walls of prison life. The show allows people to speak their truth and dispel the lies and misconceptions people have about life in prison. It’s not what you see on television. These men and women are still human beings and deserve to be treated as such. These stories not only give them a release, but it also helps others who don’t yet dare to speak out. It’s therapeutic in many ways.” The seventeen episodes of Prison Chronicles have been over three thousand times since the first video podcast aired. Denaro is a true inspiration and testimony, that history does not define your destiny. He served 18 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He lives without regrets, because he understands that prison wasn’t made for him, but prison was what ultimately made him the man he is today. He lives by a code and a standard, his motto is: “I don’t have to watch where I’m going as long as I know where I’ve already been.”

His music is fun, high octane, and literally for the entire family. His music and videos can be viewed on YouTube. Such as: “I Wanna Run,” “I Love Country,” “Just Kick It,” “I can’t Dance,” and “Everything “featuring Deshawn Harris, a tribute to The Arkansas Razorbacks.

A LOOK AT HISTORY On January 1, 2015, Dorothy A. Cooper became the FIRST and ONLY female (to date) to be sworn in to the office of Mayor of her hometown, Turrell, Arkansas. In fact, the day, also placed her in African American History as the FIRST and ONLY African American female to serve as Mayor of the great town. During Cooper’s four-year term served, she brought over $2,750,000.00 in grants and funding to her diminishing community. This made her the first Mayor to ever bring in such an amount in grants for the area, and within the four-year period. The funds were used to replace a 10-year issue of water shutting off to the entire community with a 5000-gallon pneumatic tank and generator. Funding also, went toward overlaying badly worn-out streets that had not been repaired in over 32 years. Sewer pond issues were repaired with no supplies, building money, or land to begin with. In November 2015, Cooper fought hard to get the first ever, City of Turrell Community Library opened in the town. The library still stands across from the Post Office on Barton Street. She also fought to receive funding for the first Community Park for the City of Turrell, which was built in September of 2017.

Cooper contributes her humble hard work of bringing change to her dying community to her obedience to God. Though placed under some very strenuous conditions that she lived through; she stayed the course with God’s guidance and brought the necessary changes needed. Cooper unsuccessfully ran for the seat of Mayor in Turrell, Arkansas, two other times. She ran unsuccessfully for the Arkansas State Senate seat of the district twice and the seat of Justice of the Peace of the District twice. Due to her dedication she remains an advocate for the city of Turrell Arkansas.

It has been said, Turrell became a much better place during Cooper’s term. Despite of receiving a salary of $12,000.00 annually for almost 3 years. During Cooper’s term the town saw a drop in crime, hunger diminished as free food giveaways increased. Employment increased for citizens, the air quality improved because the focus was clearly on knocking down tall grass and cleaning filled ditches of trash and debris.

When voted in as President of the Arkansas Black Mayors Association by members in September 2017, it made her the FIRST and ONLY Mayor (male or female) to serve in the capacity in the history of Crittenden County, Arkansas. She also served on the Board, prior, as Treasurer. Her faithful service to both seats gained recognition from the Capitol of Little Rock, Arkansas. She was asked to speak before several committees on the needs of all small towns in the state of Arkansas. The outcome of these meeting resulted in receiving large sums of grant funding for repairs to the water issues in these communities. Reportedly, Turrell is in line to receive $1 million dollars for building a new water tower. In 2015, she obtained an Honorary Doctorate in Philosophy. She is a certified Human Rights Consultant and certified Book Publisher where she has published nine (9) books of her own. The publications can be found on She is the CEO of her nonprofit, Whole Body Outreach ministries,, where focus is on feeding, clothing, job placement and housing for the homeless.

AFFAIRS OF THE HEART Protect Your Ticker

By Cherry Odom, BSN, RN-retired “I love you with all my heart,” and “My heart is broken,” are examples of the emotions we attribute to our hearts. The real function of the heart is to pump blood throughout your body carrying life-giving oxygen and nutrients, then removing carbon dioxide and waste. Healthy habits help protect your heart from diseases and events, like heart attacks, which may be debilitating or deadly. Taking small steps in adopting the following guidelines can make a big difference in your health.

Eat healthy foods. Avoid processed foods and focus on lean protein, fruits and vegetables. Decrease intake of sugar and salt. Use cooking oils, such as olive, corn, canola or vegetable, which contain lower saturated fats.

Drink water, avoid sugary liquids, and limit alcohol intake. To make water tastier, add herbs, such as mint, or slices of fruit. Move more. Get at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week. That is 30 minutes for five days. Activity may be broken into brief time slots throughout the day.

Schedule health screenings. Blood pressure and cholesterol levels should generally be checked annually or more frequently, as recommended by your healthcare provider. Take medications as prescribed for you. If you experience side effects, talk with your healthcare provider about finding another medication. Have dental cleanings and exams on a regular basis. Brush and floss your teeth every day. Gum disease can cause serious heart problems. Quit smoking. Eliminate tobacco or tobacco products and vaping. Avoid second-hand smoke.

For more information, check out the following links from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Heart Association and the Mayo Clinic.

GREEN vegetables and fruits are tasty, low in calories, and extremely healthy for our bodies. The benefits of incorporating greens into our daily diet include: ·regulating the immune system ·providing magnesium which reduces fatigue ·Vitamin C for iron absorption in the body ·calcium to strengthen our bones ·maintaining a youthful appearance…greens are anti- aging agents!

When I started eating more plant-based meals three years ago, I started slowly with salads and became more adventurous with omelets, smoothies, and soups. I now even juice veggies, such as celery and cucumber, for a cool, refreshing drink!
