St. Louis is known around the world for its collection of free attractions, fine cuisine, blues music and nightlife. Once the nation's fourth-largest city, it has hosted the 1904 World's Fair and Olympics, was home to ragtime composer Scott Joplin, and was the city where Dred Scott filed his landmark lawsuit for freedom. Indeed, St. Louis once stood as the gateway to the vast, unsettled American West. Today, it continues to be a city of cultural crossroads, mixing food, music and shopping for a personality all its own.

The KandiGirlz.........Tak writen by Benita Arceneaux Edited by Keith Baker

St. Louis can claim its fame for being the birthplace and home of many flourishing, long lived performing artists, athletes, and philanthropists/civil rights leaders. Some of the names originating from St Louis include: Nelly, Maya Angelo, Redd Foxx, Josephine Baker, Ozzie Smith, and many, many, others. Soon, the new household name that will resonate as St Louis-born, hall of famers, is that of two sensationally charismatic, dynamically entertaining, naturally comedic, and infinitely beautiful, Hip Hop Artists with a Pop Flare, fondly known as the “The Kandi Girlz”. The beautiful young ladies that comprise the “Kandi Girlz” happens to be St Louis born sisters, Diamond Thompson (Doll Face), 18 years old, and Sade Thompson (Nakahara), 17 yearsSade old. Thompson happens to(Nakahara), be St Louis17 born years old.

Diamond, at the age of 10, captured her mother’s attention with her love of performing by being a part of a group called “Bebe’s Kids.” This short-lived stent was the catalyst that leads to their mother’s (Valerie Clark) brainchild idea of adding Diamond’s two sisters (Sade & Brittany) as Diamond’s backup singers and dancers. As this venture began to grow, it lead to the entire sister group wanting to write their own songs and sing as well. Later, what originated as a 3-member group decreased in size to what you see before you now, a sister duo. The oldest of the group, Brittany, decid ed to leave the entertainment world

king the world by storm decided to leave the entertainment world to pursue her personal goals. i

Kandi Girlz Known As A Quadruple Threat Now attending High School in Houston, Tx, these musically talented young ladies are becoming well known all over the Mid-West for being a quadruple threat. From “walking the runway” as models, to writing music, to giving a flawless live stage performance, to their spontaneous comedic timing, The Kandi Girlz are trailblazing their way to stardom, catching the eyes of some of the music industries’ toughest leaders. Their beauty was the first thing noticed, but as more information was revealed about these jewels, it was discovered that no only are they beautiful and talented, but they are smart, ingenious, and have the ability to operate any studio equipment placed in front of them. They are the risk takers of today.

The Birth of The Kandi Girlz As their passion for music and entertaining continued to grow, Valerie, their mother and manager, was even more inclined to take the career of her daughters seriously and they officially became a group in 2008, “The Kandi Girlz.”

They released their first song, Step Up In Da Club, in 2009 and it received a lot of attention via YouTube both with comments and views. The song was such a hit that it caught the attention of DJ Sno who validated the talent these young ladies have by producing their second single Make Em Clap, released in 2010. Make Em Clap has been receiving heavy radio play in the mid-West, and allowed the girls to do an interview on the p1 radio station 104.1

In The Press As we fast-forward, to the year 2012, 2 years later, with two hit songs becoming internet sensations under their belt, The Kandi Girlz have been featured with major artists on Coast-2-Coast mixtapes hosted by Short Dawg, Eric Sermon, and followed by one of the biggest names in the Hip Hop arena, Kendrick Lamar. Going strong in 2013, The Kandi Girlz were featured on Kendrick Lamar's Various Artist Mixtape at #14 along with Ti, Andre 3000, Big Boi, Kendrick Lamar, and Ludacris being in the top 10. The Kandi Girlz keep good company and their talent goes well beyond them. Destined for Fame, with beauty, charisma, charm, and voices, “The Top” is their only stop. From New York, to Miami, to California, to Atlanta, to Houston, The Kandi Girlz have been featured in many music magazines such as NME Music Magazine, Vocab Magazine, Blended Entertainment, Six Twelve Magazine, and The HipHop Diaries, just to name a few.

They have been featured in St Louis’ local newspapers such as St.Louis Metro Sentinel, the St.Louis Post Dispatch, and The Saint Louis Argus. Also spotlighted in several both online and television type interviews such as In The Lights TV, Great Day Houston TV, Spot On Long Island, Urban Heaven Interview, and on the Houston Urban

They can also be found performing at Schools in Houston, TX such as Madison High School and Hastings High School, and a variety of different concert arenas. As we fast-forward again to 2014, only a quarter into the year, The Kandi Girlz, have already opened for a Roy Jones Jr. Event in Lake Charles, LA; performed for several high schools, and at one of the top event planning centers in Houston, TOC’s. They have made 2 Television appearances, and several radio shows, and the feature of several magazines and newsletters, like Soon the Kandi Girlz will be adding the title of philanthropists to their repertoire as they have been requested to help raise funds at many charity concerts for children in need, cancer victims, as well as cleaning up some of the violent, crime riddled urban neighborhoods. ~~They helped to raise funds for cancer patients and elevate cancer awareness as they performed for the “Fashion for Hope, 2013” sponsored by Tiffany’s-Touch out of Houston, TX. ~~They were later requested to return to their home, St Louis, MO, and performed at the mayor-indorsed event “Put Down The Guns and Pick Up Your Sons” held in July 2013. ~~They helped feed over 2,000 children, and pass out toys for the Demetrius Johnson Foundation, Christmas 2012.

Coming to a theater near you The Expendables 3 So its almost time for another action flick staring those old guys again. They are back and bigger than life with a host of new baddies and goodies to fight. We still have the usual Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Jet Li, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger but they have added some new people like Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes and Kesley Grammer. Did I forget to mention former Olympian Ronda Rousey, stunt performer and actor Glen Powell and boxer Victor Ortiz. Well there are many more surprise in this action flick but you will have to wait till August to see the full cast. So how many expendabales do it take to kill a bad guy...just wait and see.

Ok so to set this up...a beautiful girl is out, gets druged and ends up with a gut full of experimental drugs. That's what this action filled movie is starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman. After Lucy(Played by Johansson) has a rough altercation with her captors, the contents of the drugs in her stomach gets ruptured causing her to gain extrodinary powers. Freeman, being the authority on such matters of the mind has to help her understand whats going on with her. This has all the makings of a good movie and I can't wait to see it.

Judge Joe Brown Ironically Goes to Jail Rant Lifestyle | By Joelle Marie Posted: March 25, 2014

Growing up I loved watching the court shows. Judge Judy is great, and there were many others including Judge Joe Brown. I was also great at arguing so in my head I won every case. But Judge Joe Brown has been arrested. Yes, JUDGE Joe Brown. Ironic, yes. Surprised? Nah. n Memphis , Tenn., Judge Brown created a lot of noise in a court and was sentenced to five days in jail. This isn’t the first outburst by the judge, just the first I’ve heard of that was not in his own courtroom. This is not what he wants on

Y T I R B E L E C S W NE source- Shelby County Sheriff Office

in his own courtroom. This is not what he wants on his record while he running for the District Attorney’s Office. Oh boy.

The Judge’s Facebook was turned to a Martin Luther King Jr. picture, and he was compared to MLK as fighting for rights. TMZ obtained a recording where Judge Brown calls the court a “sorry operation” and there is also a “Free Judge Joe Brown” Facebook page. Already?! Man these guys are quick!

All of this happened during a child support hearing. I wonder exactly what was going on that outraged the judge so. KOMONEWS.COM reported that the Chief Magistrate, Dan Michael, said Brown was yelling and repeatedly, challenging Horne’s authority and even addressing his comments to a crowd of people inside the courtroom.

66- year-old Brown’s TV show was cancelled just last year after running over 10 years. The judge had a great run on television and is one of the many celebrities you would never have expected to be arrested, especially in his own workplace!
