Jack Baker

March 21, 1950 ~ January 29, 2024

Jack A. Baker, 73, of Morrisville NY, passed away on January 29, 2024. He was born on March 21, 1950, in Plattsburgh NY, the son of Sanford and Viola Baker. He cherished his wife, Sharon Baker, and his family with more love than anyone could ever give. He had a big family growing up of three brothers and three sisters. Jack married Sharon in 1971 and grew their family with three sons; Chad Baker married to Holly Baker, Corey Baker, and Derick Baker married to Vanessa Baker. He loved his beautiful grandchildren; Felix Baker, Jaiden Baker, Cheyenne Baker, and Jaxon Baker, along with his Great-granddaughter, Pearl Mlasgar-Baker. He was his family’s best friend, biggest supporter, and heart and soul. He taught his sons and grandchildren to love with their whole hearts because he loved with his whole heart. He will forever be the brightest soul in the entire universe, and he will be greatly missed. He will have an eye on his family forever and he will keep them from getting misled on all of their great journeys in their lifetime. https://www.paulfuneralhome.net/obituary/Jack-Baker

White supremacist convicted of killing Medgar Evers

“On February 5, 1994, white supremacist Byron De La Beckwith is convicted in the murder of African American civil rights leader Medgar Evers, over 30 years after the crime occurred. Evers was gunned down in the driveway of his Jackson, Mississippi, home on June 12, 1963, while his wife, Myrlie, and the couple’s three small children were inside. Medgar Wiley Evers was born July 2, 1925, near Decatur, Mississippi, and served in the U.S. Army during World War II. After fighting for his country, he returned home to experience discrimination in the racially divided South, with its separate public facilities and services for Black and white people. Evers graduated from Alcorn College in 1952 and began organizing local chapters of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). In 1954, after being rejected for admission to then-segregated University of Mississippi Law School, he became part of an NAACP campaign to desegregate the school.”

AROUND TOWN:

“WATERVILLE, N.Y. — If you’re a fan of high school basketball, you may have already discovered one of the best venues to visit in the area for great action in Waterville High School. And if you’ve been to a boys home game this season, odds are you’ve noticed something special, just off the “bass line” – the players aren’t the only ones focusing on the score. Waterville fifth and sixth-grade students participate in the Positivity Project Pep Band, and they frequent the boy’s home games to help rally their beloved Eagles to victory…and they love every minute of it.”
