Charnice Milton was a bookworm, her father said.

She read incessantly, educating herself not only to become an outstanding journalist, but a civic-minded individual who enjoyed life, he said.

Now, thanks to her father, Kenneth McClenton, officials at We Act Radio and others, the new Charnice A. Milton Community Bookstore has started accepting book donations. On Saturday, May 27, a kickoff event is planned in honor of the slain journalist who died after being shot two years ago as she waited for a bus in Southeast.

“My daughter would be absolutely astonished, thankful and gratified to know that there’s a bookstore named in her honor,” McClenton said as he prepared to attend a news conference to announce the new bookstore. “She spent much of her life reading in book stores and libraries. She had great passion for reading so she would love for individuals to be able to share her great love and great gift.”

D.C. Court of Appeals deals a setback to Barry Farm redevelopment

Urban Marketing Group Staff



The D.C. Court of Appeals on Thursday vacated an order issued by the District’s Zoning Commission that approved the redevelopment of Barry Farm, a key public housing complex near the Anacostia Metro station.

The decision hands a victory to citizens who oppose the project and throws a roadblock into plans by the city to transform the Southeast D.C. enclave into a mixed-income community with rentals and townhomes.

In an opinion issued Thursday, Chief Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby vacated the D.C. Zoning Commission 2014 order that approved a first-stage Planned Unit Development for the Barry Farm project and remanded the case back to the commission for further proceedings.

“We conclude that the Commission did not fully address all contested issues as required by the zoning and redevelopment regulatory scheme,” the order read. “We vacate the Commission’s order and remand this case for further proceedings as discussed in this decision.”
