Join us on Monday, April 27, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. for a very special interview with the retiring Chief of the Tampa Police Department. Jane Castor’s decisive leadership is evident in all aspects of her 31 year career. She was elected the first
female president of a police academy class and 26 years later, she became the first woman to lead the
Tampa Police Department. Chief Castor has redefined community policing in her hometown and driven
down the crime rate with her innovative approach to fighting crime.
Over the course of her career, Chief Jane Castor built a reputation for working side by side with
residents, community leaders, business owners and neighboring law enforcement agencies to reduce
crime and improve the quality of life in Tampa. Those community partnerships are the foundation of
TPD’s dynamic crime reduction strategy, “Focus on Four.” Since its induction in 2003, the plan has
reduced violent and property crime by 70%.
Jane’s strong leadership style is balanced with her efforts to help Tampa’s most disadvantaged children.She recently opened the doors of a multi-million dollar gymnasium for the Police Athletic League. The new facility is now serving more than 300 at-risk children. The department also opened a brand new safe haven for children called the RICH House. It’s the second of its kind offering a safe environment for children to thrive and for parents to connect with social services. Chief Castor’s commitment to at-risk kids is exemplified in her new Young Adult Police Academy. It targets kids on the verge of becoming involved in crime.
Join us as we say farewell to Chief Jane Castor and commend her for serving the City of Tampa and it's diverse communities with distinction.
Kids and adults of all ages will soon be able to explore the nature surrounding Los Alamos, the Pajarito Plateau, the Jemez Mountains and Bandelier National Monument with the new facility that PEEC (Pajarito Environmental Education Center) is moving into.

Justice Clarke Live @ 4th & Baker: On The Sound Board - Interview with Joe DaVerbal Minddancer and Brett Riplak
Short bio about Joe DaVerbal Minddancer:
I am Joe DaVerbal Minddancer. I've always had a way with words just never thought about writing them down. The arts were and still are my passion. So why now, why do I write poetry. I was a bit shy in my youth and very quiet, not one to express my thoughts. Being able to "Rap" (as we called it) was key. My natural shyness had me at a disadvantage. I would sit for hours browsing the world book encyclopedia searching for nothing, seieing everything. The birth of eclectic thinking. My speech was filled with one liners blessed with a quick wit and an eye for detail I used my verbal prowess to conquer love. Yet writing, never took the forefront. I found my way onlne in 2005, years after many before me and 5 years after that I wrote my first poem online.
Short bio about Brett Riplak:
Riplak is an emcee based out of Iowa. The meaning of the name is Rest In Peace Lynn Ann Kremer, in memory of his mother who passed away when he was 12. Lynn's life was taken by her best friend's 22, in cold blood. Riplak was very close to her. After she passed his friends left as well. Family was there but he still felt alone at this time. He began writing to deal with what was trapped in his head. The violent thoughts would come out on paper in attempts to stop himself from acting them out. He began singing/screaming in hardcore bands in high school. The bands never seemed to stay together.
The years went by and Riplak began meeting many people all over the U.S. Travelling to do shows almost every weekend. Making an impact on people with his personal rhymes. Music is the number one love of his life and it shows.
