The year was 2019 when we were hit with a deadly virus, Coronavirus - COVID-19. This virus shut down everything and caused us to look at the way we did things.

Then came the Delta Variant in 2021, which slowed us down more. By July 2021, it had been detected in all 50 states including Washington, D.C. However, the Omicron Variant quickly followed. Both are variants of the Coronavirus. We have begun to get back to some normality, but we are still slowly moving around.

After shutting down the magazine in 2020, we began reprinting the magazine in 2021 with three issues. This was due to a lack of community and church activities.

I’m happy to announce that we will be printing the magazine monthly in 2022, beginning with this issue. It is my prayer that this new virus, Omicron, will not lead to another shutdown.

Re-starting can be rough, but, re-start we must. With the re-start, we will be making some changes.

  • First, our color scheme will reflect the colors of a different HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) each month. This issue reflects the colors of Howard University.
  • Secondly, the price of the magazine will be $3.00 per issue. For group subscriptions, please see the inserted renewal form. Please return this form along with your payment as soon as possible.
  • Thirdly, we are still looking for individuals to report news from their community.
  • Fourth, we plan to announce the venue for our 2022 Daps Awards in March.
  • Fifth, we will be accepting nominations for the pastor, educator, student, ministry, and businesses of the month in March 2022. These nominees will be considered for a Daps of The Year award and will appear in the magazine and on our website. Each nominee must meet the Daps Awards criteria. The criteria can be found on our website at: Send your nomination to or mail to AHERN, 7845 Stagecoach Road, Whitesburg, TN 37891-9112. Be sure to include a picture.

Finally, I want to thank each board member for their hard work in making the 2021 Daps Awards a success, THANK YOU.
