Miss America crowngoes to Brooklyn woman
LAS VEGAS — A woman who grewup in Alabama and moved to New York City is the new Miss America,winningthe title after tap dancing to a JamesBrown tune,deftly dealing with a ques-tion about guns,and raising the issue of child sexual abuse in her contestant plat-form.In addition to dancing to “Get Up Off of That Thing,23-year-old MalloryHagan strutted down the runway duringthe Las Vegas pageant Saturday night inan asymmetrical white gown anddonned a revealing black string bikini.She won a $50,000 college scholar-ship and a year as an instant celebrityand role model to many girls as shedefeated Miss South Carolina AliRogers,who took second,and MissOklahoma Alicia Clifton,who finishedthird.She told The Associated Press in aninterview after her win that it was hermother who encouraged her to tackle theissue of child sex abuse in her platform— the issue she will promote during herreign.She said that sexual abuse had “rip-pled through”her family,touching hermother,aunt,grandmother and cousins.Her mother had trouble at first convinc-ing others of the trauma she had faced.“That kind of sent her into a whirl-wind of anxiety and depression. So as ateen I lost my mom kind of for a coupleyears,she said. “She was dealing withher own issues,and that’s something thatnow as an adult I understand,but then Icertainly did not.”During an interview backstage,Hagan’s mother Mandy Moore wipedtears away as she spoke.“It’s very overwhelming,”she said.“It’s all hitting me so fast.”Hagan said she will work to makechild abuse education mandatory in all50 states.“It’s something I can hopefullychange for the next generation,”shesaid.Hagan left her native Alabama forNew York at 18 with less than $1,000 inher pocket. She tried for the Miss NewYork title in 2010 and 2011 before win-ning last year.She studied communications at theFashion Institute of Technology and hasbeen living in the Park Slope neighbor-hood of Brooklyn.Hagan,who aspires to be a global cos-metic company executive,ends a longdry spell for New York in the competi-tion. The previous winner from that statewas actress Vanessa Williams,whobecame the first black winner when shetook the crown in 1984. Hagan is thefirst Brooklyn-dweller to claim the title.During the show,she survived the cutsas the contestants competed in swimsuit,evening wear,and talent events.In the final moments of the contest,“Good Morning America”weathermanSam Champion asked her if schoolsshould hire armed guards in the wake of the Newtown,Conn. shooting.“I don’t think the proper way to fightviolence is with violence,”she replied.“I think the proper way is to educatepeople on guns and the ways we can usethem properly. We can lock them up,wecan have gun safety classes,we can havea longer waiting period.”

remont,Calif.; Fremont Streets in SanFrancisco and Las Vegas,Nev.;Fremont Bridge,Portland,Ore.; JohnC. Fremont Hospital,Mariposa,Calif.;Fremont Senior High School as well asnumerous other schools,streets in otherstates; etc. can be found attributed to John C.Fremont.Born out of wedlock in Savannah,Ga. in1813,into a society that shunned bastardssocially,Fremont nevertheless was able to riseabove these social barriers and carve a namefor himself in the pursuit of explorations thatrose above this social disaster. In fact,being abastard may have influenced his developmentmore than he would acknowledge and createdthe drive for self-attainment that few otherexplorers achieved. The 1840s were a time of crisis in America. The president and Congresswanted California for Americans but theMexicans still controlled it. Much animosityand anger was generated between the twocountries and Fremont was in the center of many diplomatic situations and many timeshe added tension for wrong reasons. Hisactions were controversial,contradictory andimpetuous.Many said he was too ambitious in his drivefor success,he had too much self-justificationin many decisions he made,and that he had apassive-aggressive behavior. Many of hissuperiors either loved him or hated him due tohis actions.In 1849,Fremont married Jessie Benton,daughter of Sen. Hart Benton from Missouri.Sen. Benton favored and preached the conceptof “Manifest Destiny.The United Statesshould rule and own all of the land betweenthe Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It is our des-tiny,he said. With Sen. Benton’s help,moneywas appropriated for a national survey of theOregon Trail (1842),the Oregon Territory
