Barack Obama Boulevard is a Newly Named Street

Barack Obama Boulevard is the new addition to San Jose’s Streets. The announcement recently made by Mayor Liccardo who was joined by Vice Mayor Chappie Jones, members of the Barack Obama Boulevard Committee. 

Barack Obama Boulevard Proposal

The Barack Obama Boulevard Committee and aided by Mayor Liccardo and Vice Mayor Jones originated a proposal to rename portions of Bird Avenue, South Montgomery Street, South Autumn Street, and North Autumn Street to Barack Obama Boulevard. It was unanimously approving at a recent council meeting. In fact, renaming this prominent portion of San Jose’s street will honor the service, leadership, and legacy of the 44th President.

Former President’s Legacy

In fact, different messages to each of us are what the legacy of President Barack Obama to the millions of children, a promise of America’s limitless possibility, to those with greying hair, a symbol of progress along the big arc from the nation’s history of racial injustice, said Mayor Liccardo.

Moreover, Barack Obama represented a model of leadership that rose above the petty politics of the moment. This is from my own first meeting with the then-Senator. He lifted the gaze of an entire nation in its most bleak moments. In fact, we hope that his legacy will inspire future generation as he has inspired our own. The many community members have urged that we name this street.

A Pioneer and Great Leader

Former President Obama’s accomplishments are well renowned. So the renaming celebrates these valuable assets he gave to grateful Americans during his tenure in the White House. It included universal health, climate action, marriage equality, and economic inclusion. Did this all through leading by example, President Obama, through his measured, principled, and inspiring leadership. Serving a reminder to residents that there is hope in these trying times is the symbol of San Jose’s new boulevard.

Former President Barack Obama’s Leadership and Service to All

The leader of our city, today, in San Jose, does join with the community. With one voice, to recognize President Barack Obama for his amazing leadership and beyond capable service to all. Therefore, working together for the betterment of all is important, said Hellen Sims, Barack Obama Blvd Committee Chairperson. I’m also today thinking of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., when he said ‘Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere.’

Disturbing Murder-Suicide of San Jose Mother and Her Two Sons

SAN JOSE, CA –
Police in San Jose are probing the scene of a troubling murder-suicide involving a mother and her two young boys.

Local officers were dispatched to the location around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday. They had been alerted to a report of a suicide on the 5300 block of Dent Avenue in San Jose.

Once at the location, officers discovered an adult female and two young male children deceased in the apartment.  Homicide detectives have been busy since examining the crime scene.

Later that evening, near 10:30, the detectives officially announced they were treating the incident as a double murder-suicide. According to officials, the adult female was a mother who murdered her 4 year-old and 7 year-old sons before then ending her own life.

Detectives spotted no signs of trauma on the boys and early speculation suggests she may have used poison to kill them.

Stunned Neighborhood

Neighbor Maria Flores said, “Very lovable mother to the kids, so this is a shock.”

According to neighbors, the children lived in the apartment with both their parents. Reportedly the father had been away for several days only to return to find the two boys on a bed, and the mother deceased. Neighbors then say the father raced outside screaming for help. He grabbed the first person he laid eyes on.

Neighbor Wendy Vejar said, “I was asking what was going on and that’s when he ended up telling me that his kids were dead and the wife hanged, I don’t know, in the bathroom?

Another neighbor reportedly called the police after hearing the cries of children that he portrayed as “horrifying.”

Neighbors went on to say that the mother had recently lost her job at a nail salon and hadn’t worked since. They also noted the husband was unemployed too.

Based on conversations with the neighbors police believe the couple was suffering through marital problems.

The couple lived in the apartment complex for about three years, and their boys were always playing with the other kids. They were real fixtures among that community and it will be a struggle for everyone there to come to terms with the tragedy.
