7 year Old Takes Six Bullets for
Mother from Angry Boyfriend
DETROIT Two weeks after
Alexis Goggins, a 7-year-old Detroit
girl, jumped in front of a gunman
crying, "Don't hurt my mother," she
lay in a Michigan hospital fighting
for her life.
The alleged gunman, 29-year-old
Calvin Tillie, fired anyway, sending ,
six bullets from his 9 mm handgun '
into Alexis' body, blinding her in
one eye. He hurt her mother, Seliethia Parker, as he intended anyway.
One of the bullets tore through her chest and barely missed an artery;
another grazed her face. Parker is doing fine. Alexis is a different story.
Tillie, Parker's ex-convict former boyfriend, has been arrested and
charged with two counts of assault with intent to commit murder. If con-
victed, he could get life.
Tillie, whom Parker met earlier this year, was apparently angry that she
had called off the relationship after three months. He kidnapped the
youngster, her mother and friend at gunpoint and the shootout happened
when they stopped for gas.
When police arrived on the scene, they found Alexis curled beneath
the steering wheel in a pool of blood. Tillie was arrested at the scene.

Indiana Rep. Julia Carson

Succumbs to Lung Cancer
INDIANAPOLIS Rep. Julia Carson, who rose
from a childhood of poverty and segregation to
become the first black and first woman to represent
Indianapolis in Congress, died last weekend. She was
69.
E,- i Carson died of lung cancer at her home, where she
had spent the past several weeks, family spokes-
woman Vanessa Summers said.
Carson had persevered through major heart surgery and years of health
problems before revealing her lung cancer last month, saying she would
not seek election in 2008 to a seventh term. Carson had been away from
Washington since late September, when she was hospitalized with a leg
infection.

Wis. Man Graduates College at 87
MILWAUKEE-A 50-year gap in his higher education didn't stop
Clarence Garrett. After returning to college in spring of 2006 as a full-
time student, Garrett completed course work at the University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee and was awarded his bachelor's degree at com-
mencement ceremonies Sunday -- at the age of 87.
"We are not sure if Clarence Garrett is the oldest to ever graduate from
UWM, but we do know that there had not been a graduate for some time
who was born when the president was Woodrow Wilson," Chancellor
Carlos Santiago said.
On hand were Garrett's wife, Mary, his children and grandchildren.
He was chosen to lead the graduates from the College of Letters and
Science into the U.S. Cellular Arena, and he earned a standing ovation
when awarded his degree.
The Baltimore native served as a civilian at a U.S. Navy facility in
Virginia before World War II. Once the war began, Garrett, who is black,
served with the segregated Army in Europe.
He later settled in Milwaukee and took courses at the college that later
became UWM, but he gave up college to raise a family.
"After all my children went to college ... I said, 'Why shouldn't I?'"
Garrett said. "And I have loved it ever since."

Black Farmers May

Get Boost in Farm Bill
WASHINGTON -- The farm bill approved by the U.S. Senate last week
moved Congress a step closer to reopening a landmark discrimination
case against the Agriculture Department.
Like its companion bill in the House of Representatives, the Senate
measure would give thousands of black farmers another chance at seek-
ing compensation over claims that they were denied loans or other crop
subsidies because of their race.
In April 1999, the federal government settled a class action lawsuit
from black farmers who claimed they were systematically denied loans
and other government aid from local USDA offices. Using a review
process that required a lower standard of proof than a civil suit, the
department agreed to pay US$50,000 plus tax benefits to farmers who
could show they faced discrimination.
About two-thirds of the nearly 22,500 farmers who filed claims were
awarded damages, and the government has paid almost US$1 billion in
compensation.
But about 74,000 claims were never heard because farmers missed an
October 1999 deadline. The pending legislation would allow those
claimants to file entirely new lawsuits or to seek expedited payments of
US$50,000 under similar conditions as in the original settlement.
Critics have charged that farmers had plenty of time to win claims
under the original settlement that the U.S. Department of Agriculture
agreed to in 1999. Reopening the matter now could cost several billion
dollars and reward questionable claimants who may not have suffered
losses, they argue.

Jax Journey
to Confront

Crime Wave
In an effort to halt the ever
increasing rise of crime in
Jacksonville, making the north
Florida city number one in the
state, Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton has initiated Jacksonville
Journey, Take A Step, a compre-
hensive, citywide anti-crime initia-
tive. He is joined in spearheading
the campaign by businessman John
Rood and former State Senator
Betty Holzendorf and a host of
other community leaders.
The campaign is dubbed as a
three-fold approach to fighting
crime that includes law enforce-
ment but also focuses on preven-
tion and targeted intervention,
including rehabilitation and re-
entry programs. Cont. on page 3

Can Lightening



Strike Twice?
Obama 08' Mirrors Clinton 92' Campaign


The fact that the former president
is utilizing a page from the same
Republican playbook used against
him 15 years ago underscores the
threat Obama poses to the candida-
cy of Clinton's ife. Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton of Ne%' York.
Clinton %%as 42 in 19'S. four
years younger than Obama is now.
Already one of the nation's longest
ser mg governors, Clinton accom-
plished little between 19S8 and
1992 that added to his depth of
experience other than \ inning a
filfh term as Arkansas governor
while promising not to seek the


presidency before his term
expired.
He broke that promise.
As a first-time presidential candi-
date, Clinton cast himself as an
"agent of change" in troubled
times, and faced criticism from
Republicans about his south and
inexperience.
Obama finds himself in the same
boat, this time. Clinton is manning
the torpedoes.

are most strongly for him, they say

Pass and Play event. Andrea Siracusa Photo


The Jacksonville Jaguars are doing
good things on and off the field. The
team, potentially headed towards
their first play off seat in nearly a
decade is also showing love for those
who appreciate the season most -
kids.
Jaguar Marcus Stroud may be hav-
ing a rough season with game sus-
pensions followed by a season end-
ing injury, but that hasn't stopped the
NFL veteran and friends from giving
back during the holiday season.
Joined by several of his teeam-
mates, Stroud and company hosted
their 2nd Annual Marcus Stroud Pass
and Play event for local youth.
Over 90 children enjoyed an unfor-
gettable shopping experience last
week when the six Jacksonville
Jaguars players joined in holiday
shopping at a local Wal-Mart.
As part of the 2nd Annual Marcus
Stroud Pass and Play event, children
from Boys & Girls Clubs of
Northeast Florida, Police Athletic
League, Pathways Academy, Kernan
Middle School and the Clara White
Mission took a tour of the
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium and
enjoyed shopping
The annual event, which is coordi-
nated by the Marcus Stroud
Foundation, allows members from
the chosen charities to shop with
$100 for gifts for themselves and a
least one other person.

Obama Campaign 08'
Continued from front
"all these experienced people
because they have been through the
wars of the '90s and they made
enough decisions and enough calls
that they made a few mistakes. And
what we want is somebody who
started running for president a year
after he became senator because
he's fresh, he's new, he's never
made a mistake, and he has massive
political skills. And we're willing to
risk it,'" Clinton said on a recent
national news show.
He also called Obama an "enor-
mous talent".
"Is it more important to have
somebody who is basically by his
very nature a compelling, incredi-
bly attractive, highly intelligent
symbol of transformation, or is it
more (important) to have somebody
who also would symbolize change
by being the first woman president,
but has actually done incredible
numbers of things to change other
people's lives," he said of his wife.
Critics initiate a fair case to make
that Obama is not ready for the
presidency.
Less than four years removed
from serving in state Senate,
Obama can't point to more than a
decade in the governor's office as
could Clinton. He wasn't a war
hero, as was a young presidential
candidate from another era, John F.
Kennedy. And he didn't serve first
as vice president, as did the 40-
something Teddy Roosevelt.
Even his admirers in Springfield
have their doubts about Obama.
"The unknown is the administra-
tive and foreign policy experience,"
said Sen. Kirk Dillard, a
Republican who supports Obama.
Obama knows that he's asking vot-
ers to take a leap of faith.
"... People have to feel comfort-
able that, 'You know what? This
guy can handle the job,'" he was
quoted last summer. "It's a stretch
for them because I haven't been on
the national scene for long and
haven't gone through the conven-
tional paths that we traditionally
draw for our presidents, so they've
got to stretch a little bit during a


period where there's a lot of stuff
going on internationally, right?"
He said at the time his challenge
was to define experience as some-
thing more than service in
Washington or a state capital. He
needed voters to take the full meas-
ure of his life, his judgment and his
style, Obama said, because if the
race turns into a battle of resumes,
he loses.
It should be no surprise that
Obama was ready to respond to the
former president's criticism.
"'The same old experience is irrel-
evant. You can have the right kind
of experience or the wrong kind of
experience. And mine is rooted in
the real lives of real people, and it
will bring real results if we have the
courage to change.'" said Obama in
response.
"And that was Bill Clinton in
1992."

Nikki Giovanni Tells FAMU

Graduates Never to Give Up


k - "I - .- -- - -- -
FAMU President James H. Ammons presents Nikki Giovanni with an hon-
orary doctorate of humane letters at FAMU's commencement exercises.
Keynote speaker, renowned poet Nikki Giovanni, told FAMU students
a heartfelt story about a football game between FAMU and Virginia Tech.
"By halftime, the score was 47-0 in favor of Virginia Tech," said
Giovanni. "However, every time the FAMU quarterback had the ball, he
kept playing," said Giovanni.
The next Tuesday after the game in her class, Giovanni asked members
of the football team who did they think was the best player at the Saturday

player was FAMU's quarterback.
"He knew the odds were against him but he keep giving it his all," said
Giovanni. "After the game, he left the field with his head held high. You
too must remember to do your best and hold your head up high. Never
give up."

"Looks like they are just making
up a time to meet some more," said
Jaquelyn Haynes whose nephew
was shot on his front porch.
"How is anyone that doesn't even
live in the so-called community
(both black and white) going to
solve it's problem- especially the
biggest problem?" she asks in refer-
ence to crime and some of the big
names on board.
Haynes is not alone in wondering
the effectiveness of the initiative.
Elder citizen Odessa Loveland has
complained about ongoing drug use
and sales in her District 8 neighbor-
hood for years, cries she feels fell
on deaf ears.
"It gets better, then it gets worse -
but it always stays bad," remarks
Loveland, now in her 80s. It was
leaving her front yard of more than
30 years recently where she stepped
on a hyperdermic needle.
"I've seen this neighborhood get
worse and worse. When they
afford it, people move away and
just leave the rest of us to rot with
the waste. Nobody that pays taxes
should have to live like this in fear."
The City's solution calls for a
mega meeting of the minds that
includes individuals and leaders of
organizations that have worked for
the betterment in a collective brain-
child. They have guidelines given
through a white paper that is to be
followed to institute actions to
make Jacksonville a better place.

Pansu 4 Ms.Pprrv's Free Pres


All I Want for Christmas Is...


Let's see here, all I want for
Christmas is my two front teeth and
that Rolls Royce Phantom that I see
all of the rappers displaying in their
music videos. Well, come to think
of it that's really not my style so I
should probably focus on a few
things that will actually benefit the
community.
And since I already have my two
front teeth, I really need to revise
my Christmas list or stop hanging
out with pre-kindergarten children.
Like many of us I feel very blessed
to simply be living another year,
and also appreciate the numerous
blessings bestowed upon my
friends and family. This is the sea-
son that we concentrate on giving
thanks, love and appreciation.
I am looking forward to the birth
of my third child any day now. It's
amazing I went from one child to
three in a little over a year. Please
pray for my sanity.
OK, enough with the sappy stuff;
I need to figure out what to put on
my Christmas list. I have always
been one who doesn't ask for much;
in fact I enjoy giving more than
receiving. But don't we all say that.
However, 'tis the season,' so I have
compiled a list of things I want for
Christmas.
Although this great holiday is
only a week away, Santa still has
plenty of time to "Hook a brother
up."
The first item on my list this year
is peace on earth. Yeah, I know
that it is not a very original wish,


but when our American brothers
and sisters are dying in Iraq every-
day one gains a new appreciation
for peace.
Within the first few months of
the war in Iraq we had more
American deaths than the entire
Gulf War, and the death tolls con-
tinue to mount. It's almost 2008 and
Iraq is still not a stable country.
One has to question if Iraq and
oil/gas prices would have been bet-
ter if we never invaded the country.
Unfortunately for our soldiers, I
still don't see an exit strategy any-
where. And for the families of our
military men and women currently
serving this holiday season proba-
bly will not be as enjoyable.
The second item on my list
would be a drastic reduction in
murder and crime in our city. Of
course, I would love to ask for a
total elimination of murder and
crime, but one must be realistic.
I will say that something has to
change if we are truly going to have
any success fighting crime. But
progress involves risk. And as
Moms Mabley once said, "If you
always do what you always did,
you will always get what you
always got."
I believe that we have to get back
to community policing and getting
more officers out of cars and into
neighborhoods interacting with cit-
izens and criminals. If we build
better relationships in the neighbor-
hoods we can empower our citizens
to cooperate with law enforcement


and fight crime together.
Yeah, I know it sounds too sim-
ple and philosophical to work, but
we will not know until we get offi-
cers out of cars and aggressively
interacting with citizens.
On the other side the social
side, we have to figure out a way to
change the mentality of our urban
youth. There is a sense of hopeless-
ness that many have that must be
dealt with before our communities
can change for the better. The great
educator, Benjamin Mays, said,
"The tragedy in life doesn't lie in
not reaching your goal. The tragedy
lies in having no goal to reach."
And that quotes gets to the heart.
Not enough of our youth have
goals because they are not being
properly educated and not enough
black men are taking responsibility
for raising their children.
While some may think that the
murder rate is simply an African
American issue those with good
sense or even common sense
should know that while many of
these murders happen in the core
city they affect the entire
Jacksonville metropolitan area.
Again, the issue is not race, but
economics. Throughout history
there has been a strong correlation
between violent crime and poverty.
Many of the recent murders have
involved black-on-black crime, but
the homicides have spilled over
into predominately white commu-
nities as well.
Let's see, my third Christmas


wish falls back into the realm of
"feel good" gifts, and is probably
more important to me than the first
two because I feel that no child
should ever wake up on Christmas
Day without gifts and a hot meal. I
believe that it is very important for
children to be happy on the birth-
day of Christ.
The reason we give gifts on
Christmas is because when Jesus
was born many wise men, disciples
and common folks took gifts to him
on his day of birth, and that is why
ensuring that children receive gifts
is so important to me.
Minister Howard Thurman once
said, "If we love a child, and the
child senses that we low him, he
will get a concept of love that all
subsequent hatred in the world will
never be able to destroy." So help
out organizations like Toys for
Tots, the Salvation Army, our local
churches and others who make sure
that our children receive gifts and
love this holiday season.
I have a lot more political, social
and of course personal items on my
list, but I will hold on to them in
hopes that Santa recognizes that I
have been a good boy this year. I
just had a thought Santa Clause
has to be a liberal, no conservative
would waste their time delivering
toys to needy children all night.
Merry Christmas to all and I
hope that you are well during this
holiday season.

Poll, Reggie Fullwood


The Prison System: Faith in Isolation


by Bishop Council Nedd
I have never served time behind
bars. As a priest, however, I have
made my fair share of prison visi-
tations. If there is one thing I have
learned from these visits, it is that
there are diverse personalities
among the incarcerated.
From my experience, there are
some prisoners you are secretly
happy to see locked away from
society. There are those who did
wrong and are simply serving their
sentences. Others cause you to
wonder what miscarriage of justice
occurred to land such a timid soul
into such a hostile and unforgiving
place. And, while I have not seen it
personally, I have heard from my
prison chaplain colleagues about
meeting the glance of someone
who is pure evil.
There are also those who are "on
fire for the Lord" who want to be
a beacon of something better and
greater for all who share his prison
home.
What would happen if all these
people of faith were removed from
the general prison population and
placed them in a separate facility?
This is a new trend in the American
penal system: faith-based prison
dorms or prisons exclusively serv-
ing a pious population.
Lawtey Correctional Institute in
Raiford, Florida, for example, was
created in 2003 as the first faith-
based prison. While a belief in
God in not a prerequisite, 26 reli-
gions were represented among the
initial population of the medium-
security facility. Local religious
volunteers teach inmates about
things such as good parenting and


anger management in the evenings.
At first consideration, religious
restitution seems like a wonderful
.idea. Wardens and prison guards
all talk about the-dramatic drop in
drug use, fights and rape at these
facilities. Additionally, prisoners
are free to practice their faith with-
out the fear and the distractions
incumbent in regular prison life.
But my mind immediately goes
to St. Paul, who spent a fair amount
of time in prison. Through it all, he
never stopped working to bring
people to Christ.
As St. Paul and other early
Christians spread their faith, the
Romans tried to stop them.
Executions of these missionaries
created the martyrs who promoted
their faith more through their ulti-
mate sacrifice. To counter this
unintended situation, the Romans
resorted to torture and maiming -
creating those known as the con-
fessors. The martyrs and confes-
sors are no more, but their legend
and legacy lived on much longer
than their actual missionary work.
Wardens and guards who say
there is a less volatile environment
in the faith-based prisons will also
tell you that the prisoners who are
being placed in these segregated
environs are the ones who had a
calming effect on the general pop-
ulation before their transfer.
Whisking them away as if the rap-
ture occurred is not the answer. It
may be safe. It may be easy for the
guards who get those assignments.
But professed Christians in prison
are being called to a very different
ministry, much like the confessors
and martyrs of the past.


Two federal prison chaplains I
know further tell me that the
Christianity flourishing in prisons
is a very immature Christianity. It
tends to be a mile wide and a foot
deep. It often begins with a mim-
icking of what is seen on television
and heard on radio, and then it
digresses like a game of telephone
- with no one knowing what the
original source actually said or
intended to convey. Having
answers to questions about faith
and others to guide people having
crises and trials of faith is the only
way to bring people to a more
evolved level of faith hence the
need for modem-day confessors.
Also, removing Christians and


others of faith from prisons is
removing the witness. Imprisoned
Christians in particular can have a
profound effect on those around
them. We need look no further
than the thief on the cross. While
most Christians are not called to a
monastic life or life as a hermit,
there are some who receive a gen-
uine calling.
Christianity has never been easy,
and prison shouldn't be. So prison
is the last place from which we
should be extracting faith.

and the Northeast for the Episcopal Missionary
Church, is the honorary chairman of In God We

Why Aren't

Blacks Interested

in Buying American


. -. The American economy is declining. Are you a
part of this problem, or its solution?
In a Capitol Hill briefing, the head of the nation's oldest black business
organization said his National Business League (NBL) is addressing the
problem with a focus on "creating more well-paying jobs for African
Americans". NBL President W. Ronald Evans says that the solution is:
"For America to secure economic prosperity now as well as in ten and fifty
years in the future, we must restore and protect our manufacturing and
technology foundation. Manufacturing and technology serve as the cata-
lysts for all other sectors of the economy. American manufacturing and
technology must be restored."
"As we've lost manufacturing and technology industries, too many
African American have moved from well-paying jobs with good benefits at
high tech automobile manufacturing plants to working minimum wage
jobs," said Evans as he introduced an initiative between the NBL and the
American Organization for Restoring Jobs (AORJ), a consortium of busi-
ness and advocacy leaders to promote the preservation and restoration of
the America's manufacturing base for both the economy and employment
for more African-Americans.
The NBL action is worthwhile. Since the end of World War II, manufac-
turing jobs, particularly in the automotive industry, have been an important
source of %\ell-pa% ing jobs for African Americans. Since blacks first went
into the factories. in the early 1900s, millions of African Americans have
attained middle-class lifestyles and many families are in their fourth gen-
eration directly due to auto industry wages. As recent as 1979, 2.1 percent
of African American %workers were employed in automotive manufacturing.
But. b. 2004. the numbers had fallen to 1.3 percent. In manufacturing in
general, African American employment has fallen from 23.9 percent of all
workers to 10.6 percent.
The NBL/ AORJ alliance needs consumers' and legislators' assistance
toward their goals. Stating "it is time to turn this whole issue around." the
NBL and AORJ have asked that Congressional hearings be held on this
issue. But, the groups may get grips from many black consumers on the
issue. The "Bu\ American" initiatives the alliance is promoting maf tall
on deft ears among African American car buyers. Black Americans spend
$100 billion each year on vehicle purchases 56.8 percent on "foreign
cars".
"When am I actually purchasing a vehicle made in America?" is a ques-
tion African American buyers can ask the consortium. Across the nation's
showrooms, Honda's best sellers come from plants in Ohio while Ford
imports many of its cars from Mexico. Toyota has a plant in Texas. BMW
is in Alabama and Chrysler brought in cars from Europe. Factuall, the Big
Three still have more domestic content defined as made in the United
States or Canada on average than their foreign-owned competitors MNan)
African Americans consumers don't care about the domestic content of a
car or where it was assembled.
But, the Level Field Institute, an organization formed by former UAW
members, encourages buyers to consider the domestic content and eco-
nomic impact of purchasing a car. Even when deciding between a Honda
and a Volkswagen people should make more sophisticated choices. Honda
makes cars in Ohio and Alabama out of parts produced in this country VW
imports all of its cars. Buying a Honda supports nearly 2.4 more U.S. jobs
per car than a VW. Black, as well as white, consumers need to note that
buying a car made by Ford, GM or Chrysler, on balance, is puts more
money into the American economy than buying "a foreign vehicle".
Much of African Americans' fate into the future is in our own hands. The
NBL/AORJ is seeking to build values and attitudes toward buL mg cars
made by American corporations to keep more dollars and jobs in America.
Evans says he's interested in hearing from African American consumers,
businesspeople and legislators about how to: Create manufacturing jobs;
promote technical training programs and institutions among more African-
American communities and more grants and contracts with government
agencies and corporations for HBCU (Historically Black colleges and
Universities) institutions.

Words Without Action Are Just Words we would be, how truly


by James Clingman
Speaking of acting upon words is a
serious notion. I often quote famous
Black people, as I am sure most of
us do. We refer to their writings and
their speeches, citing their words of
wisdom and deriving inspiration
from their knowledge. I recently
thought about how we often recite
the words of famous Black people
after they have passed away. It's sad
to think that so many of our fore-
bears said so many important and
enlightening things that we failed to
heed or even repeat until long after
they died.
I hope my words are not merely
quoted and used to simply stir the
emotions now or after I have left
this earth. Too often we let opportu-
nity slip away because we fail to act
upon information when we receive

it; we'd rather wait and use the
words to temporarily satisfy and
soothe our pains.
Let's look at some examples. In the
past two or three decades, the
phrase "By any means necessary"
has been used millions of times by
our brothers and sisters. Had we fol-
lowed some of Malcolm's words at
the time he was saying them, imag-
ine where we would be today. Still
many Black men and women quote
him and use his words to stir the
emotions, but few are willing to
incorporate the words into their
daily lives. How many of us are
willing to have economic empower-
ment by any means necessary?
Marcus Garvey is another brother
who is quoted quite often. How
many of us actually live by his
words? How about Mary McLeod

Bethune? She told us what to do
economically before she died, and
we just love to hear her words today.
Have we turned her words into
action? Martin Delany, T. Thomas

Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, and
many more have told us what we
must do for ourselves in order to
have a strong economic foundation.
Are we following the principles
they espoused?
As we face our collective eco-

one of two ways: As a speeding
train about to run over us or as a
train we are about to board and take
a nice long trip. What's it going to
be? If we had followed a few of the
words our mothers and fathers
uttered when they walked this earth,
I shudder to think how powerful we


rich we would be, not
only financially but in most other
ways as well. Additionally, since we
are talking about that train, we cer-
tainly would not have to worry
about it running us down we'd
own it!

Horace Sudduth, admonished us:
"Economic freedom is the greatest

The local alumni associations of
EWC, FAMU and Hampton
University ended the year on a joy-
ous note with a round of Christmas
Socials. Attendees enjoyed food,
fellowship, festive decorations and
fond remembrances with class-
mates.
But the graduates of these educa-
tional institutions cited the parties
as more than just holiday celebra-
tions these events offered opportu-
nities for alumni to do something
positive for Historically Black
Colleges and Universities
(HBCUs).
According to Ken Reddick, who
graduated in 1972 and holds local
and regional positions with the
Hampton Alumni Association, giv-
ing back to his alma mater is one of
the "reasons for the season."
"Hampton offered so much to my
wife and me," said Reddick.
"Events like our Christmas party
allow us to connect with other grad-
uates and current students and focus
on preserving the university's great
legacy."
Godfrey Jenkins, the current
president of FAMU's JRE Lee
Alumni Chapter and a member of
the Class of 1965, said he and other
rattlers gather together for a number
of events throughout the year, but
the Christmas social is really spe-
cial. He noted, "We have a lot of
fun, with an emphasis on fundrais-
ing and getting others excited about
the school and what we are trying to
accomplish. Earlier this year, we
gave $8,000 to deserving students.
At tonight's party alone, thanks to


Mia Jones' pledge, we raised
$2,200 to provide additional schol-
arships and give back to FAMU."
There was record attendance at
the EWC Alumni Association
December meeting and social.
Attendees received a special mes-
sage from the College's president,
Claudette Williams, about the
importance of graduates. She stat-
ed, "I can't succeed without the help
of the alumni." Encouraged by her
words and those of the alumni lead-
ership, members raised $2,866 for
Edward Waters. Ruby George, a
newly pinned lifetime member and
1982 grad, urged, "I challenge
everyone here to bring at least five
new members to the next alumni
meeting. It's important that we all
get involved."
The success of these alumni
associations is hardly new. Since
its formation in 1951, the
Jacksonville Hampton Alumni Club
has been actively recruiting stu-
dents and providing scholarships.
Joyce Lawson, a 1952 graduate,
stated, "I started attending alumni
meetings before I graduated. We
now have a number of events
throughout the year that include
hosting the Hampton Choir, the
Annual Beach Party, movie trips
and more. These strengthen the
bond already established between
Hamptonians. We also involve cur-
rent students and their parents to
help them develop that great
warmth we feel for our beloved
institution."

Chapter can trace its inception back

ber of the Class of 1999, said
FAMU embraced her as an under-
graduate. As a result, she looks
forward to the activities that allow
her to connect with other Rattlers. <
Members meet quarterly for a !
Social and the Rattler Grub Club
and host the annual reception for
high school seniors that will attend
FAMU following graduation.
The alumni association for
Edward Waters College, formed in
the 1960s, has experienced a resur-
gence. Members can now enjoy the
biannual national convention and
participate in local Homecoming
activities like the Spirit Breakfast.
EWC Alumni Association
Membership Chair Carl Johnson, .--. i.
who graduated in 1970, stated,
"Our Christmas event allowed us to
inform others of all the exciting '
events we have planned for the
coming year, like the first 'I Love
EWC Alumni Ball' in February. We
can get our alums encouraged and
ready for 2008. This is our chance
to help preserve the College for
future generations."' i '-.4,-C

PLEDGE TO THE REDI) BLACK AND GREEN FIIAG
WE PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE RED, BLACK, AND GREEN, OUR
FLAG, THE SYMBOL OF OUR ETERNAL STRUGGLE, AND TO THE LAND
WE MUST OBTAIN; ONE NATION OF BLACK PEOPLE, WITH ONE GOD OF
US ALL, TOTALLY UNITED IN THE STRUGGLE, FOR BLACK LOVE, BLACK
FREEDOM, AND BLACK SELF-DETERMINATION.


Origins of tl
Red is for the Blood. Black is the
Black People. Green is for the Land.
Red, Black and Green are the oldest
national colors known to man. They are
used as the flag of the Black Liberation
Movement in America today, but actually
go back to the Zinj Empires of ancient
Africa, which existed thousands of years
before Rome, Greece, France, England or
America.
The Red, or the blood, stands as the top
of all things. We lost our land through
blood; and we cannot gain it except
through blood. We must redeem our lives
through the blood. Without the shedding
of blood there can be no redemption of
this race. However, the bloodshed and sor-
row will not last always. The Red signifi-
cantly stands in our flag as a reminder of
the truth of history, and that men must
gain and keep their liberty, even at the risk
of bloodshed.
The Black is in the middle. The Black
man in this hemisphere has yet to obtain
land which is represented by the Green.
The acquisition of land is the highest and
noblest aspiration for the Black man on
this continent, since without land there
can be no freedom, justice, independence,
or equality.
The colors were resurrected by the Hon.
Marcus Garvey, Father of African
Nationalism, as the symbol of the strug-
gling sons and daughters of Africa, wher-
ever they may be. Since the 1950's, when

the independence struggle began to reap
fruit, the Red, Black and Green have been
plainly adopted by Libya, Kenya and
Afghanistan. Other African States have
included the colors Black and Red, com-
bined with yellow or white.
The colors were established in 1920 as
the banner of the Universal Negro
Improvement Association, and adopted as
the symbol of Africans in America at the
convention of the Negro People's of the
World. It is a symbol of the devotion of
African people to the liberation of the
African Continent, and the establishment

S. ,


of a Nation in Africa ruled by descendents
of slaves from the Western World.
In addition, with the formation of the
Republic of News Africa, it has become
the symbol of devotion for African people
in America to establish an independent
African nation on the North American
Continent.
Thus, the colors were not chosen at any
limited convention of Black persons; but,
have been, in centuries past, and are now
the emblem of true Black hope and pride,
as embodied in all theories of Pan-
Africanism and Black Nationalism.

-Begin using the
greeting "Habari
Gani" and the response "Nzuri Kwanzaa,
Nguzo Saba". Note, the response changes
on the first day of Kwanzaa to Umoja, on
the second day to Kujichagulia, etc.
A week of fasting, from sunrise to sunset,
to cleanse the body, discipline the mind and
uplift the spirit is suggested.
December 24 Gather and arrange
Kwanzaa symbols and any other decora-
tions. Arrange the symbols on a low table
or on the floor.
- Spread the Mkeka (straw mat).
- Place the Kinara (candleholder) in the cen-
ter of the Mkeka.
- Place the Muhindi (ears of corn) on either


MKEKA (M-kay-cah) The
ti. Mkeka is a straw mat on which all
the other items are placed. It is a
traditional item and therefore sym-
bolizes tradition as the foundation
S -.- on which all else rests.
_-- b.. KINARA (Kee-nah-rah) The
"'I Kinara is a candle-holder which
holds seven candles and represents
the original stalk from which we all sprang. For it is tra-
ditionally said that the First-Born is like a stalk of corn
which produces corn, which in turn
becomes stalk, which reproduces in the
same manner so that there is no ending
to us.
MSHUMAA (Mee-shoo-maah) The
seven candles represent the Seven
Principles (Nguzo Saba) on which the
First-Bom sat up our society in order
that our people would get the maximum
from it. They are Umoja (Unity); '"
Kujichagulia (Self-Determination);
Ujima (Collective Work and
Responsibility); Ujamaa (Cooperative ", L
Economics); Nia (Purpose); Kuumba -:
(Creativity), and Imani (Faith).
MUHINDI (Moo-heen-dee) The ear of corn repre-
sents the offspring or product (the children) of the stalk
(the father of the house). It signifies the ability or poten-
tial of the offspring, themselves, to become stalks (par-
ents), and thus produce their offspring -- a process
*.-: which goes on indefinitely,
and insures the immortality
of the Nation. To illustrate
this, we use as many ears of
corn as we have children
which again signifies the
i. -number of potential stalks
(parents). Every house has


side of the Mkeka. There should one ear of
corn for each child in the family.
- Creatively place the Zawadi (gifts),
Kikombe Cha Umoja (unity cup), Tambiko
(water and soil) and a basket of Mazao fruit
on the Mkeka.
- Hang up a Bendera Ya Taifa (flag of the
Black Nation). It should be facing the east.
- Place Mishumaa Saba (seven candles) in
the Kinara. Remember the Mishumaa
should be red, black and green. Use any
creative combination you desire. For exam-
ple, three red, three green and one black; or
two red, two green and three black, etc.
Begin using the greeting "Habari Gani"
and the response "Nzuri Kwanzaa, Nguzo
Saba." Note: the response changes on the
first day of Kwanzaa to "Umoja;" on the
second day to "Kujichagulia," etc.
December 26 On the first day of
Kwanzaa, the Mtume (leader or minister)
calls the family together. When everyone is
present, the Mtume greet them, "Habari
Gani," and the family responds "Umoja."
Thus, the Kwanzaa celebration begins. The
celebration is conducted in the following
order, substituting each principle for the
response on its respective day.
- A member of the family (all standing)
offers prayer.
Harambee (let's pull together) is a call for


at least one ear of corn; for there is always the potential
even if it has not yet been realized.
KIKOMBE CHA UMOJA (Kee-coam-bay chah-oo-
moe-jah) The Unity Cup symbolizes the first principle
of Kwanzaa. It is used to pour the libation for our ances-
tors; and each member of the immediate family or
extended family drinks from it in a reinforcing gesture
of honor, praise, collective work and commitment to
continue the struggle began by our ancestors.
ZAWADI (Sah-wah-dee) The presents (gifts) repre-
sent 1) the fruits of the labor of the parents, and 2) the
rewards of the seeds sown by the
children. Parents must commit their
children to goodness which to us is
beauty. We must commit them to
good acts, good thoughts, good
grades, etc., for the coming year and
reward them according to how well
they live up to their commitments.
Goodness, again, is beauty and beau-
ty is that which promises happiness
to the family and community. For all
acts, thoughts and values are invalid
if they do not in some way benefit
..- .:"the community.
KARAMU The feast symbolizes
the high festive celebration that brings the community
together to exchange and to give thanks to the Creator
for their accomplishments during the year. It is held on
the night of December 31 and includes food, drink,
music, dance, conversation, laughter and ceremony.
Secondary Symbols of Kwanzaa
NGUZO SABA (En-GOO-zoh Sah-BAH) -
Symbolizes the seven principles of Kwanzaa which
were developed by Maulana Ron Karenga. The Nguzo
Saba are social principles dealing with ways for us to
relate to each other and rebuild our lives in our own
images.
BENDERA YA TAIFA The flag of Black


unity and collective work and struggle of
the family.
Each member raises his/her right arm with
an open hand; then pulls the arm down,
closing the hand into a fist.
- Harambee is done in sets of seven in
honor and reinforcement of Nguzo Saba.
- Zawadi (gifts) are played down and spiri-
tual and social rejuvenation is played up.
Hand made gifts are strongly encouraged
over commercial purchases. Items related
to black heritage or items that have special
meaning and will help the person through
the next year are encouraged. The gifts
should be reflective of a commitment to
education and the riches of our cultural her-
itage and a sign of the struggle for liberation
for black people. The gifts can be fruits
shared each night by members. The gifts
can be given to children in one of two ways:
One gift can be given each day to enforce
the principle of that day.
All gifts can be given on December 31st
during Karamu (feast).
December 31 The Karamu (feast) is
held and includes food, music, dance, etc.
Harambee.
Closing prayer.
The Kwanzaa song can be repeated as
often as is wished for the elevation of the
spirits.


Nationalism symbolizes the struggle of Liberation. The
Red represents the blood of our ancestors; Black is for
the collective color of all Black people, and Green
reminds us of the land, life and new ideas we must con-
tinue to strive to obtain.
TAMBIKO Symbolizes the libation by which honor
is given in a special way to our ancestors and a call to
carry out the struggle and the work they began. It clear-
ly symbolizes the recognition of and respect for the con-
tributions of those before us, our history and the models
it offers us to emulate.
HARAMBEE Symbolizes a call to unity and col-
lective work and struggle. The word means Let's pull
together!

Wha As KWANZAA?


Created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga, Kwanzaa is based on harvest festivals traditionally practiced throughout Africa. Kwanzaa
brings families and communities together to celebrate the "fruits" of their year's labors, to give thanks (asante), to evaluate
-- their achievements and contributions to the family and community and to lay plans and set goals for the year ahead.
The holiday name Kwanzaa comes from the East African Swahili word Kwanzaa, meaning "the first."
SMatundeya Kwanzaa is a Swahili phrase meaning "the first fruits". The extra "a" in the Kwanzaa holiday
name gives the word seven letters, one letter for each of the seven principles in the Kwanzaa value system.
Kwanzaa is the only celebration of its kind and encourages people of African descent to turn to their
own culture and value systems. The Kwanzaa celebration knows no religious barriers and is now
celebrated by more than 18 million people around the globe.
Kwanzaa is not intended to be a "Black Christmas" but signifies "Black Holy" Days.
Traditionally, among people everyone gathered together to celebrate the harvesting of the first
.. crops and give collective efforts that had made the community prosperous. The celebration is also
a time to renew and strengthen communal ties that enable us to make progress. It is an African
celebration that reflects our traditional way of life that our western experience has made strange
to us. It mixes traditional, communal, social and economic system with our present situation and
our present needs. Kwanzaa is the time we set aside to mentally, physically and spiritually prepare
ourselves for continued progress.
The holiday is celebrated from December 26th through January 1st. Each day of Kwanzaa rep-
resents one of the "Nguzo Saba" or Seven Principles.
As a Kwanzaa celebrant, you should try to live the principle for that day. When asked
"Habarigani? (Swahili for what's happening or what's the news) we should respond with the princi-
pie that corresponds to the day.
Black, red and green are the colors of Kwanzaa. Black is for the color of our people. Red is
*for our continuing struggle, and green is for the lush, rolling hills of Africa. Green also is the
color for hope, represented by African American children.
On the last day of Kwanzaa there is always a gigantic Karamu (feast) where everyone
Springs what they have grown as their feast contribution. This reminds everyone that the
B community is no greater than the efforts of the individuals that comprise it.
," ,Kwanzaa addresses self-esteem: one is called to celebrate cur-rent efforts, as well
as, past glories, prepare for the future, as well as, triumph over yesterday's injus-
tices. Kwanzaa is affirmation: a way of saying, "Yes, African Americans are peo-
ple of history, of the present, and of the future. Kwanzaa is motivation to African
Dr. Maulauna Karenga, Founder of Kwanzaa American people to "Keep on Keeping on."





Preparing Mentally for Kwanzaa


By Conrad Worrill
It is estimated that more than 18 million African
Americans participate in some sort of Kwanzaa event. In
the wake of the rising African-Centered Education
Movement in America, it is important that every segment of
the black community begin preparing for the Kwanzaa sea-
son. In order for this to occur, parents, teachers, principals,
ministers, business people and community activists must
begin preparation immediately.
The first question that should be asked in preparation for
the Kwanzaa season is, "What is Kwanzaaa and why is it so
important for African American people?"
In the 1960s, the Black Power explosion shook up America
and successfully began dismantling the legal system of
racial segregation in the south. However, many blacks felt
there was a deeper meaning to the ideas of freedom, justice
and equality that had not been advocated by the Civil Rights
Movement. The call for Black Power by Congressman
Adam Clayton Powell, Kwame Toure (Stokely
Carmichael), and others gave a new impetus for the Black
Liberation Movement in America.
When the smoke cleared from the watts rebellion in 1965,
an organization emerged in the Los Angeles area called


"UA." Its leader, Maulana Karenga, Ph.D., became a noted
spokesman for the independence, liberation and the acqui-
sition of power for African American people.
After intense study of African cultural traditions, Karenga
established the only nationally celebrated, indigenous, non-
heroic black holiday in the United States the holiday he
called Kwanzaa.
The concept of Kwanzaa was, as Karenga established it,
derived from the African custom of celebrating the harvest
season. He explains, "the origin of Kwanzaa on the African
continent is the agricultural celebration called the "first
fruits" and, to a lesser degree, the full or general harvest cel-
ebrations. It is from these first fruit celebrations that
Kwanzaa gets its name from the Swahili phrase "Matunda
Ya Kwanza."
Karenga further notes, "The first fruit celebrations are
Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith), recorded in African
history as far back as Egypt and Nubia and appearing in
ancient and modem times in other classical African civi-
lizations such as Ashantiland and Yourabland."
Karenga created Kwanzaa to introduce black people to
new values, which, if practiced, would give us a set of pri-
orities and lead us to our liberation and a higher level of


human life. That is the major reason that all African
American people should celebrate Kwanzaa.
The concept of Kwanzaa strikes at the root of the African-
Centered Education Movement in this country. It provides
a forum for us as a people to define ourselves in the context
of our own experiences.
Kwanzaa is celebrated Dec. 26th Jan. 1st, and each day
is dedicated to the concept of Nguzo Saba (the Seven
Principles of Blackness). They are: December 26-Umoja
(Unity); December 27-Kujichagulia (Self-determination);
December 28-Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility);
December 29-Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics); December
30-Nia (Purpose); January 1-Imani (Faith).
Kwanzaa is a celebration that gives African people in
America a re-affirmation of our greatness and the possibili-
ties for continued growth. It is a holiday season for us that
gives us a chance with our families and loved ones for the
prospects and future of black liberation. It gives our chil-
dren positive reinforcement for what we must continue to
fight for as a people.
If you are not familiar with Kwanzaa, purchase and read
Maulana Karenga's book, The African American Holiday of
Kwanzaa.

The Tri-parish Churches,
Crucifixion, Holy Rosary and St.
Pius Catholic Churches, Father
Jason Trull, Pastor and the
Multicultural Ministry, Black
Commission of the Diocese of St.
Augustine recently joined forces to
sponsor a Holiday Health Fair for
the Brentwood community. Not
only did the Fair come complete
with health information and tests,
but with prizes and presents as well
Over one hundred participants
visited the Health Fair from the
neighborhood and beyond. They
received health and safety litera-
ture, asked experts health related
questions, took part in physical
activities, received screenings and


were treated to healthy snacks of
fruit juice and granola bars after
visiting the sixteen booths.
As a token of the holiday spirit,
each participant received a small
wrapped gift from the parishioners.
As an extra incentive, participants
had "passports" stamped at each
visited booth that allowed them to
take part in drawings for large
prizes such as bicycles, gift cards
and toys.
Entertainment throughout the 10
a.m. 2 p.m. mid day event was
provided by the Crucifixion adult
choir and youth handbell choir who
sang and rang familiar Christmas
carols. Judging from the smiles on
the faces, the free event was
enjoyed just as much by the givers
as the receivers.


Student volunteers included Diamond Gillard, Zdari Lee, Chandra
Lee, Selina Judd, Monique Jacobs, Brioni Lee and Brockni Lee.

The Jacksonville Local
Organizing Committee Inc.,for the
Millions More Movement assisted
by the teachers and staff of Eugene
Butler Middle School and the Black
Educators for Justice and Coalition
for Concerned Citizens combined
to give the young brothers at
Eugene Butler Middle School 'Free
Hair Cuts'. The theme for the free
event held last week was "Reading
With Style is a Key To Success As


We Strive To End The Violence ".
The image that one perceives and
thinks of themself is a driving inner
force that means so much to young
men. With that premise in mind
JLOC's James Muhammad got the
support of the organizations and
the six barbers to donate their off
duty time for the youth .
"It was refreshing to all of us there
to look into the faces of these young
brothers after their hair cut was


completed." Said Bro. Andre X.
"We could see readily the almost
instant change in each of the 35 of
them, high self esteem ."
A positive self image is a key
ingredient to produce change. If

More Movement visit our website

Why Do Christian Men Cheat Part II
Picking up where we left off last week with ordained spiritual advisor professional therapist Dr. Sabrina Black,
we will continue with the reasons of why infidelity still happens in Christian households.


4. SAME REASON AS
OTHER MEN
What in the world does that
mean? He would cheat for any of
the twelve listed reasons and more.
A brother like this needs help;
God's, yours, and mine. Every man
needs to be responsible for his own
actions and not follow or fall for
the things of this world. He needs
personal accountability. God for-
bid that he is led astray because he
believes that any of these 12 rea-
sons are acceptable.
5. PRESSURES OF WORK
Pending deadlines, meeting quo-
tas, high expectations, limited
resources, and the fear of downsiz-
ing, outsourcing, and layoffs lead
to extreme pressure. Computer
access provides numerous outlets
for anonymous relationships. Sex
has become the drug of choice to
relieve the pressures of the eight-
to six- hour workday. Aware of
stress and anxiety, companies pro-
vide counseling, gyms, training,
workshops, and counseling to help.
6. SEXUALLY EXPLICIT
MATERIAL ALL AROUND
THEM
We are bombarded night and day
with sexual materials. Some men
actually seek out additional erotic
stimulation. Although it is within
our control to eliminate much of
the sexually explicit material,
Matthew 26:41 tells us to "Watch
and pray so that you will not fall
into temptation. The spirit is will-
ing, but the body is weak." We
need to be mindful to see no evil,
hear no evil, and speak no evil.
Men need to guard every gate
through which sex may enter.
7. WOMEN MAKE IT EASY
FOR THEM
Is this really an excuse? It is also
easy to fall off a cliff, but I do not
see many men falling. A man can-
not do anything about their wife's
physical appearance, choice of
clothing, and or willingness to
indulge his sexual fantasy, but this
should not change a man's charac-


ter. He can exercise self-control
and flee a dangerous liaison. Every
man has the wherewithal in God to
remove himself from temptation.
8. THEY WANT THEIR
CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
For many men a polyamorous
life is the stuff of which fantasies
are made. But no Christian woman
is going to agree to an open rela-
tionship of three, unless it is the
two of them plus God. When a man
loves a woman the way that God
intends, that will take all of his
energy and attention. There will
not be room for two women; that is
a nightmare not a fantasy.
9. BOREDOM
Sexual excitement, stimulation,
and the desire to overcome bore-
dom has been cited as a reason that


more sex, sexual variety, and satis-
fying sexual curiosity leads men to
cheat. A client once told me that
the missionary position is for mis-
sionaries and that men want
women who live this side of the
free world not those who lay
straight. Sex on Saturdays, special
occasions, or every other week has
become routine for some men. But
just as these same men can create
an atmosphere of romance some-
where else, they can light a fire to
rekindle love at home as well.
Next week the series will con-
tinue with the final three reasons
why Christian men cheat. We
will start the year with a new
beginning and examine how cou-
ples can recover when faced with
infidelity.

Remembering Ike: r ,Music legend both
GIII~me erili IkeC. reviled and revered


Many Americans didn't know
much of Ike Turner until after his
image was immortalized on screen
by Laurence Fishburne in the criti-
cally acclaimed, "What's Love Got
to Do With It". As the battering hus-
band of Tina Turner, it was easy to
forget his contributions to the great
musical style
known
as


R & B.
The infamous
musician died last week at age 76.
His legacy left an indelible mark on
the music world as a guitarist, song-
writer, bandleader and Grammy-
winning Rock and Roll Hall of
Famer. He even has a star on the St.


Louis Walk of Fame.
East St. Louis was his home and
musical stomping ground early in
his career, where he hooked up with
his scorching hot protegee, Annie
Mae Bullock, who later became
half of the Ike and Tina Turner
Revue. Those lucky enough to see
them in their prime were witnessing
genius and highly explosive
chemistry.
Ike's deeper-than-
deep bass voice,
se.x. bass guitar
lines and ultra-
cool onstage
presence
were the
perfect
foil for
Tina, a
40,000-
volt bolt
of dancing,
screaming
k energy.
Together
S rfhe\ became one
of rock 'n' roll's
greatest duos, scoring
ith classics including "A
Fool in Lo~e," "It's Gonna
Work Out Fine," "Nutbush City
Limits" and their cover of
Creedence Clearwater Revival's
"Proud Mary."
Ike Turner, a Mississippi native,
is the creator of what is arguably
rock 'n' roll's first song: "Rocket


88," recorded in 1951 in Memphis,
Tenn., with his Kings of Rhythm
band. Chess Records, however,
credited the song to its lead singer:
Jackie Brenston and His Delta Cats.
But for some, Ike's musical gifts
were overshadowed by his ugly
side as a wife-beater. Years of
domestic abuse came to light after
depictions of his relationship with
Tina surfaced first in her 1986
biography "I, Tina" and later in the
1993 movie "What's Love Got to
Do With It."
Once it was revealed that his hits
weren't only on the charts, he was
demonized for the rest of his life.
Ike Turner's name became a punch
line, albeit an unfunny one. Turner's
personal history recently prompted
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay to
reject the idea of an Ike Turner Day.
Turner had been scheduled to
headline the Big Muddy Blues
Festival on Laclede's Landing on
that date. But after Slay had his say
in July, Turner called in sick. Some
assumed he was paying St. Louis
back for Slay's snub, but emphyse-
ma was taking its toll on the singer.
"People have been taking my per-
sonal life and gotten it mixed up
with my contributions to music," an
ailing Turner told the Post-Dispatch
in a story published July 29. "If you
take just one part of anybody's life
and magnify it, you will come up
with something.
"I don't think my personal life is


the world's business. I'm not
defending my personal life. My per-
sonal life was what it was," said
Turner, who at the time of his death
was married to Missouri native
Jeanette Bazzell Turner, a woman
Ike Turner once joked was "white,
but she cooks black."
Ike Tuner news kept coming this
year. Before the flap with Slay,
which made international head-
lines, Turner was arrested in May
- and quickly released on a
drug warrant that had been issued
and recalled in 1989.
Asked whether he physically


abused Tina Turner, he said:
"I'm not saying one way or the
other. I'm just telling you how dom-
inant I was and inconsiderate I was,
embarrassing her with all the other
girls, all this crap I did. A lot of it
was wrong. But it was done.
"All I can say, and I would only
say this to her, is I'm sorry. I don't
owe nobody else that."
The movie "What's Love Got to
Do With It" devastated his career,
costing him gigs and endorsements,
Turner said. Everything in the
movie was played out to an
extreme, he said, and he was never
the man portrayed on screen.
Turner, who has had a serious
drug problem over the years, said
he signed a contract while under the
influence and accepted a mere
$45,000, giving the film's producers
the right to portray him any way
they wanted.
"I have nothing to prove to
nobody but myself. And whatever it
took to make what I am today, I
love me today."

It's official
After weeks of unconfirmed
reports and months of speculation,
it has been confirmed that Terrence
Howard will, indeed, lead the cast


of the all-black version of 'Cat on a
Hot Tin Roof,' when it makes it way
to Broadway at the top of next year.
Production spokesperson Joe
Trentacosta confirmed that the


Academy Award nominated star of
'Hustle & Flow' will take on the role
of Brick in the newest revival of
Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer prize
winning play.
Hunky rapper LL Cool J and neo-
thespian Anthony Mackie were
reportedly considered for the role.
However, Howard, who is build-
ing up a steady portfolio of acting
credits, will make his official
Broadway debut with the meaty
role -- as an alcoholic husband to
the larger than life lead character
Maggie "the CAT."
The Philadelphia native, who stars
in 'Perfect Holiday' which opens
this week, will joining Tony Award
winners James Earl Jones, Phylicia
Rashad and in the Anika Noni
Rose, Debbie Allen-helmed pro-
duction set to being performances
on Feb. 12 at the Broadhurst
Theatre.This show, presented by by
Front Row Productions and pro-
duced by Stephen C. Byrd, marks
the first African American pro-
duction approved by Williams'
estate for the Broadway stage, after
four previous turns.
Tickets go on sale for 'Cat on a Hot
Tin Roof on Dec. 29.

ALICIA KEYES TO PLAY LENA HORNE
It's official. Singer Alicia Keys will play Lena .:
Horne in a movie on the music legend and not
Janet Jackson as was rumoured earlier.
Talk show host Oprah Winfrey, who has taken
over the project, wanted Keys in the lead role,
pagesix.com reports. She said: "We're going to *
start filming next year.
And, we've got Alicia." The casting seems to be
making sense since Keys and Horne share a lot in H k :
common. Both were from New York and became
famous quickly. Keys is a spokesperson for sev-
eral AIDS organizations, and Home was heavily
involved in the civil rights movement.
Horne, 90, has been deeply involved in the casting process and had
asked Jackson to remove herself from the project after the Super Bowl
controversy where the pop star exposed her breast during a performance
and claimed it was wardrobe malfunction.
JAY Z TO OPEN HOTEL IN MAHATTAN
Jay-Z is venturing into Donald Trump
S -_ territory with the announced launch of his
new J-Hotel chain in Manhattan.
The Def Jam president has secured a
S. development site in Chelsea to build the
.150,000 square-foot luxury hotel that will
S t serve as the flagship for a planned expan-
sion into other cities.
The site was purchased by Jay-Z partners Charles Blaichman of CB
Developers and Abram Shnay, along with son Scott Shnay, of SK
Development Group in two separate transactions the acquisition of the
base site for $51 million, followed by the acquisition of the air rights for
$15.4 million, totaling $66.4 million.
The J-Hotel will be located in the gallery district between 10th and 11th
avenues at 510 W. 22nd St., also known as 511 W. 21st St.
LARRY HOLMES TO JOIN HALL OF FAME
Larry Holmes received the ultimate validation Tuesday when he took his
place in the International Boxing Hall of Fame, joining 11 others fighters
and ring personalities in the class of 2008.
He will be enshrined on June 8 as the longest reign-
ing world heavyweight champion in boxing history,
holding the title for nearly seven years (1978-85).
Holmes' 20 successful heavyweight title defenses
were surpassed by only Joe Louis with 25. He was on
the verge of tying Rocky Marciano's perfect 49-0
mark when he was upset by Michael Spinks for his
first loss.
"I think there were some people who shortchanged
me ... not the fans," Holmes said. "Sometimes the
critics try to make you think you are less than what you are."
The 2008 inductees, chosen by members of the Boxing Writers
Association and a panel of international boxing historians, also includes
junior welterweight champion Eddie Perkins; late Middleweight Holman
Williams; Middleweights Len Harvey and Frank Klaus and welterweight
Harry Lewis in the old-timer category, and 19th-century Irish heavy-
weight Dan Donnelly in the pioneer class.

7 Foods You Never Want to Eat

There will always be those fattening foods that are easy to make, easy to get, and easy to crave. You
think "OK, I know this is bad but it can't be that bad!" Think again. Here are the top seven foods you
should never ever feed your family or yourself!


1. Doughnuts
It's hard to resist
WV., the smell of a
' Krispy Kreme
doughnut, which
is why I never
step foot in the
store. Doughnuts are fried chock-
full of sugar and white flour and
loads of trans fat.
According to Krispy Kreme's
Web site, an average 3.5 oz. sugar
doughnut weighs in with about 400
calories and contains few other
nutrients besides fat. These sugary
treats may satisfy your craving but
it won't satisfy your hunger as most
of the calories come from fat.
"Eating a lot of refined sugar con-
tributes to blood sugar 'swings' or
extreme fluctuations," says nutri-
tionist Susan Burke.

A


V% -- .


2. Cheeseburger with fries. The
age-old classic may be delicious but
think twice before sinking your
teeth into that Big Mac. The satu-
rated fat found in cheese burgers
has been linked to heart attacks,
strokes and some types of cancer.
"In fact, fast-food portions are
gargantuan, almost double the calo-
ries per meal compared to 20 years
ago," Susan says. "Twenty years
ago the average fast-food cheese-
burger had about 300 calories.
Today's BK Whopper with cheese
has 720. To burn the excess 420
calories, you'd have to run for 40
minutes. For example, in 1985 a
medium French fry had 240 calo-
ries, 2.4 ounces. Today's 'medium'
is 6.9 ounces and 610 calories.
"This fast-food meal of cheese-
burger and fries has way too many,
calories and fat grams, not to meitf-
tion grams of saturated fat, trans fat'
and cholesterol and sodium."
Let's break down this meal. First,
take the white-flour bun (refined
carbohydrates), then add some
processed cheese (saturated fat and
trans fat, plus lots of additives and
preservatives) and then top off with
fried red meat (cholesterol and sat-
urated fats). And let's not forget
about the condiments such as the
always fattening mayonnaise.
3. Fried Chicken and Chicken
Nuggets. With the
recent class-action
lawsuit between
SThe Center for
Science in the
Public
Interest
(CSPI) and
KFC, the
health risks
posed by
fried foods
are becoming
more public.
The CSPI is
suing the food
chain for their use of
cooking oil containing
unhealthy trans fats. The lawsuit
seeks to order KFC to use other
types of cooking oils and to inform


customers how much trans fats
KFC's food contains.
Foods cooked in highly heated
oils (most notably partially hydro-
genated oil) have been known to
cause cancer, weight gain and other
serious health risks if ingested reg-
ularly. One Extra Crispy Chicken
Breast from KFC has around 420
calories and eight grams of saturat-
ed fat. So unless you want to super
size yourself, it's best to make a
clean break with fried foods.


puffed, dyed and
sweetened..
Most kids' cere- ,;
als are so highly -:'- a
processed they no I.
longer look like
the grains they
were originally
made from. A
healthy alternative p. ,
is oatmeal.
Although, if you are buying pre-
packaged oatmeal make sure to
check the label and see how much
sugar it contains, you might be sur-
prised.


"A little sugar isn't a problem but
when the first ingredient on the box
is sugar, then watch out," she said.
"There is no fruit in Froot Loops.
But the unsweetened original
Cheerios or Rice Krispies are fine,
and you can sweeten them naturally
with blueberries and strawberries."
6. Processed Meats. What falls
under the category of processed
meats? Hot dogs, sausage, jerky,
bacon, certain lunch meats and
meats used in canned soup prod-
ucts. Almost all processed meats
have sodium nitrite added as a pre-
servative.
A recent study conducted at the


University of Hawaii found that
sodium nitrite can act as "a precur-
sor to highly carcinogenic
nitrosamines -- potent cancer-caus-
ing chemicals that accelerate the
formation and growth of cancer
cells throughout the body." So elim-
inate these meats from your diet
before they eliminate you!
7. Canned Soup. Sometimes
regarded as a healthy food, soups
can be very deceiving. You must
stay on your guard because many
canned soups have high levels of
trans fats, sodium and artificial
preservatives such as MSG. Just one
serving (which is roughly one cup)
can have almost 1,000 milligrams
of salt. Also, steer clear of soups
that are cream-based, they can be
high in calories and fat.
It is important to read food labels
from back to front. Ignore the
health claims, and instead focus on
the ingredients and serving size.
Watch out for hydrogenated fat
(trans fat) and sodium. If you're
buying bread to go with you soup,
the first ingredient should be whole
grain -- either whole wheat, rye or
other grain. If it just says 'wheat
bread,' that doesn't mean whole
wheat.

12 Must Do Hair Tips

Just in Time for Christmas


In light of the holidays...I decid-
ed to do something special.
You've heard the Carroll the
Twelve Days of Christmas, well
here are Dyrinda's must have 12
hair care tips. Enjoy.
On the Twelfth day of
Christmas my true love gave to
me: Moisturizer. It is so impor-
tant to keep hair of African ances-
try moisturized. I can't stress that
enough. It can help prevent
breakage and give you a nice
healthy sheen to your hair. There
are plenty of oils and creams on
the market so pick the best one
for your hair type.
On the eleventh day of Christmas
my true love gave to me: A
healthy scalp. You don't have to
suffer through embarrassing dan-
druff. I suggest lightly scratching
your scalp to pull up the dandruff.
Then apply natural oils such as


On the seventh day of Christmas
my true love gave to me: A trim.
That's right less can create more.
Trimming those split ends can
help your hair grow. Most people
can get away with trimming
about a half inch to an inch every
four to six months. If you are
using a lot of heat on your hair
you may have to trim more often.
On the sixth day of Christmas
my true love gave to me: Good
hair care appliances... or shall I
say appliances that are at the right
setting. Again be careful, exces-
sive heat is not good for your hair,
it can also lead to split ends and
breakage.

Quick Holiday
- If you know you're going out for
a dinner or to a cocktail party that
night, have a good breakfast and a
simple bowl of soup or a salad for
lunch as long as you don't overeat
in the evening you'll feel like you
can treat yourself a little.
- Don't skip meals; you'll be rav-
enous by dinner and ready to
overeat.
Drink a few glasses of water
before a cocktail party, you'll be full
and less likely to fill up on high
calorie cocktail food the trick to
is to keep portions small
- During this busy time of the year


Health Tips
we get less sleep than we need and
some of us feel a slump in the late,
schedule your day so you are out
and running errands or shopping at
this time just 10 minutes of brisk
walking can give you up to two
hours of increased energy.
- If you are lacking sleep depart-
ment steer clear of high fat foods,
which make you feel sluggish.
- Stay hydrated; even slight dehy-
dration can lower blood volume,
which forces the heart to pump
harder to keep blood circulating.
Water (preferably) will help you
fight off fatigue

4. Packaged Lunches. Sure they
are convenient and easy, but boy are
they unhealthy! These kid-market-
ed lunches are loaded with saturat-
ed fat and sodium. They usually
contain highly processed meats and
cheeses, white flour crackers and
sugary treats. Lunchables get two-
thirds of their calories from fat and
sugar. And they provide lopsided
nutrition since they contain no
fruits or vegetables.
"They insidiously promote obesi-
ty by making kids think that lunch
normally comes in a cellophane-
wrapped box," Susan says. "Parents
are promoting their children's obe-
sity by buying these items. They're
expensive, too. Pack a sandwich
and save dollars and health."
5. Sugary Cereal. Not all cereals
are created equally. And
while your kids
might beg for the

prise cereals, it
is a safe bet they
