Corey Thornton Likes "The Teachers Desk" delivers hope to the children in need.

WNYShares has a vision to encourage and work along side schools and local community organizations by providing funding and materials for programs that fall within the mission of WNYShares.

These groups can in turn designate their own limited funds for critical needs within their organizations.

WNYShares was conceived from a burden on the hearts of two men, Fred Caserta and his friend John Mika. Fred Caserta, the founder of Kingdom Bound Ministries, has gone home to be with the Lord, but the vision continues to grow.

Corey Thornton "A Prom queen was bullied and the prank backfires"!

Whitney Kropp told WNEM-TV she felt betrayed after some of her classmates at West Branch’s Ogemaw Heights High School suggested that her selection announced this month at the 800-student school was a joke. She said she had been picked on in the past, but it intensified afterward.

As word spread, however, community members rallied behind the sophomore. She’s expected appear at Friday’s homecoming football game. And The Detroit News reports businesses will buy her dinner, take her photo, fix her hair and nails, and dress her in a gown, shoes and a tiara for Saturday’s dance.

Whitney’s mother Bernice Kropp said the support has helped make a bad situation right in the community about 140 miles northwest of Detroit.”This was something that was really awful, could have ended awful, and because so many people came together, it just turned right around,” she said.

Jamie Kline, 35, started a Facebook support page, which drew hundreds of messages of encouragement. Shannon Champagne, 28, and another beauty salon worker offered their services and asked other businesses to do the same. And Donny Winter, an Ogemaw Heights graduate, made a YouTube video to show his support.

”Bullying cannot be resolved by silence, it has to be resolved by actually stating what’s happening and actually saying it’s wrong,” Winter said.

What is bullying?
Bullying can be shoving, pushing, hitting or spitting. It can be name-calling, picking on, making fun of, laughing at or excluding someone. Lately, bullying has spread to the internet. Cyber-bullying can involve writing messages or sending pictures on-line that are hurtful to another.
Bullying can be defined as being exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students (Olweus, 1993). There are three key components to all bullying situations.
1. There is always a power differential between the bully and the victim
that is acquired through physical size, strength or status.

2. There is intent to harm; the child who is bullied is put in the
position of oppression by the child who bullies.

3. Finally, bullying is a repeated rather than singular event.

Corey Thornton Detecting the signs of bullying!

City officials are taking a stand to put a stop to bullying.

During a weekend rally at Lake Eola, they hoped to prevent the tragedies seen around the country with children taking their own lives, after being victims of bullies.

For some, the issue is personal, because they’ve also been bullied.

Experts said in half of the cases where someone intervenes, the bullying stops.

Rick Moore, a parent of a child who experienced bullying and pastor as a local church, offered advice to participants in a live chat with News 13.

”Ask your child questions about bullying. Do they know what to do? Do they know what not to do? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Early detection is critical,” wrote Moore.

Others shared stories of how they dealt with bullies as a child themself or for their own children.

”@ Rick, my son did tell his teacher the first time. They separated the two and figured the problem solved… As for your other post, I wholeheartedly agree with martha. Most bullies feel bad or inadequate about themselves again most likely learned at home. It does seem to start younger and younger,” wrote Julie.


Corey Thornton A father who threatened his daughter's bullies.

James Jones had had enough of his daughter’s bullies.

He made national headlines when he got onto his 13-year-old daughter’s bus and threatened the students who had been picking on her. He was also arrested for the incident.

But Jones is now ready to rally the community against bullies.

Jones has organized a march against bullies, to be held next month in Sanford at his daughter’s school, Sunshine State School of Leadership.

”A year ago I’m fighting for my life. I could have been in jail to this day,” Jones told News 13 Friday. ”But right now we’ve had this opportunity to promote against bullying we’re on the verge of a big breakthrough, I think.”

Jones never went to jail. He recieved probation, a fine, and was required to taked an anger management and victim awareness class.

Jones and his daughter Chatari have spoken at national anti-bullying events, and on national television since the incident. He has recieved help from parents all over the world who sympathized with his situation.

The October 7th walk will go from the Sunshine State School of Leadership to Seminole County school board headquarters.
