Family discovers child missing on morning news

and a chance to clear her name at the same

and other family her parenting capabilitie
members rushed to
the police station to
claim little Maurice
Alexander Green,
3. Offord said the little boy was at a relative's
home when he apparently wandered off by him-
self early Tuesday morning.
An unidentified 'good Samaritan' found the
toddler walking down the street and attempted
to locate his family by knocking on doors at an
apartment complex near Northwest Second

Avenue and 24th Street. The man reportedly
asked a resident of the complex to keep the lit-

being identified, as he has an outstanding war-
rant for his arrest.

cousin Melvinia McClain said that when she

Offord said as soon as she learned of her
son's disappearance, she "grabbed his birth
certificate, social security card and a picture"
of herself and Maurice to prove that she was
his mother. After reviewing her identification,
Offord said Miami Police presented her with a
five page police report that documented what
they said was her extensive criminal record.
Except, according to Offord, she is not the per-

Offord was actually relieved to learn the rea-

ment. The hair stylist said, "Luckily they had a

stole her identity and used her name as an
alias as she committed criminal activities.

Black judges should


know better

Here we go again. Another Black judge is facing
opposition from a Hispanic who understands the
power of a name. Anything goes in Miami elections,
so this common ploy is not surprising.

What is surprising is that Black judges have not learned
better. The Black community should not only hear from
Black judges at election time. They should know their faces
and hear about their agendas way before they are faced with
deciding whether to keep them on the bench or not.

Blacks' disproportionate representation in all aspects of
the court system from dependency to criminal make it
imperative to elect qualified Black judges who are commit-
ted to the fair and equitable distribution of justice.

Ideally, voters should be responsible for obtaining the
information they need to make good decisions. Realistically,
everyone knows how seldom that happens.

Most voters actually want to have the information they
need to determine who the better candidate is, they just do
not want to have to get it for themselves. Once elected,
Black judges must do more to retain their seats.

Judges must be careful about taking a public stand on
legal issues; however, they can promote their accomplish-
ments and share with voters who they are and why they
should be allowed to serve.

This is not to say that simply because a judge is Black
that they should get a free pass from the Black community.
Voters should be checking out how all judges rule and
determine which jurists are committed to the fair and equi-
table distribution of justice. As late writer Zora Neale
Hurston said, "all our skin folk aint our kin folk." We need
only look to Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas for evi-
dence to support her theory.

AIDS ignorance
Acquitted! After a South African judge pronounced
That rape trial verdict this week, the man in the
ock, one of the country's most popular politicians,
broke into a broad grin and, later, some traditional Zulu vic-
tory chants. But it was no cause for the country to cele-
brate. Quite the opposite.

Jacob Zuma, 64, deputy leader of the ruling African
National Congress and former deputy president, has done
deep harm to the cause of AIDS prevention and efforts for
women's equality.

During his trial, at which he was accused of raping a-31-
year-old HIV-positive woman, he admitted having unpro-
tected sex with his accuser but said he "took a shower"
afterwards to diminish the risk of infection.

That scientifically outrageous statement one that caused
AIDS hotlines to jam with callers asking whether this was
an effective HIV-prevention method was particularly irre-
sponsible for a man who once headed the country's official
anti-AIDS campaign.

South Africa has long been known for an inspiring leader,
Nelson Mandela, who led the country out of apartheid with
dignity. Zuma's following, particularly outside urban areas,
gives him great influence. Too bad he's using it so irrespon-
sibly.

Twenty-five years after the HIV virus was discovered,
South Africa has the largest number of people with HIV in
the world: as many as 6.2 million out of 45 million. A chief
reason is that until 2002, President Thabo Mbeki denied
HIV caused AIDS and refused to make treatment available.
A campaign by Mandela, by then in retirement, helped force
him to back down. But by then HIV infections had explod-
ed.

Zuma's second outrage was he said he had felt obliged to
have sex with his accuser for "cultural" reasons: She was at
his house in a skirt that, he said, indicated she wanted sex
- and Zulu tradition dictated that he oblige.

South Africa is progressive on women's rights in its con-
stitution. Reality is different. Only about one in nine rapes
is reported. Attitudes such as Zuma's are partly to blame.
During the trial, his accuser was given police protection;
she now might have to flee South Africa in fear of her life.

In the quarter-century of the AIDS plague, the best pre-
vention and treatment methods have become well-known.
They include leadership and education. Zuma who still
faces a corruption trial in July and might not survive polit-
ically (he belatedly apologized Tuesday for having unpro-
tected sex) has provided neither. USA Today.

take some responsibility and
let's help each other lay every-

we fight like hell against the
covert genocide in this country
and reclaim our pride, our
strength and our honor. Yes, I
said genocide. It is nothing
new; if you want to destroy a
people you take out the male.
It is written, even in the Bible.
Exodus one versus 15 through
18 details a direct order to
commit genocide. From the
New Living Translation, "Then
Pharaoh, the king of Egypt,
gave this order to the Hebrew
midwives, Shiphrah and Puah:


When you help the Hebrew
women give birth, kill all the
boys as soon as they are born.
Allow only the baby girls to
live. But because the midwives
feared God, they refused to
obey the king and allowed the
boys to live, too. Then the king
called for the midwives. "Why
have you done this?" he
demanded. "Why have you
allowed the boys to live?"
There has to be a full court
press starting in our homes
and in our churches to restore
and rebuild the Black man.
But, I believe it is up to the
brothers to do the reclaiming.
Therefore, I stand and ask you
to stand in a blatant move
called, "operation, let's go get
'em.' I want pastors to return
to the streets to pull up the
brothers there. I want brothers
who've left the drug and hustle
game to start a productive,
successful business to pull
another brother up. I want
every brother to commit to
going to get another brother
and help him stand.
So let's start there, 'opera-
tion, let's go get 'em.' The King
raises a warrior, -the warrior
raises another and the village
is protected and endures.

Eddie Murphy had a movie
out several years ago, The
Distinguished Gentlemen,
where he played a shyster who
used the fact that he had the
same name as, a well-known,
white politician to win a seat
as a U.S. Congressman.
In effect, Eddie Murphy's
character used his name to
confuse voters and win an
election. In a movie, the situ-
ation was quite hilarious.
Eddie Murphy quickly became
caught up in the high stakes
lobbying game and suc-
cumbed to the pressures of
having his vote bought. In the
end, he discovered his con-
science and worked to help
protect his constituents. In
other words, it had a beautiful
Hollywood ending.
It is said that art imitates
life. Can candidates win elec-
tions based solely on their
name? In Miamii-Dade
Coutyv. tlic answer seems to
be yes. It Ias long be en the
adage that when voters know
nothing about a candidate,
they simply pick the candidate
with the most appealing name.
Consequently. Hispanies
vote for individuals with
Ilispanic surnames. Jewish
voters vole for cnidt(ldates with
Jewish stirmiiailes and Black


and white voters tend to vote
for candidates with Anglo-
Saxon names. A well-respect-
ed Black Judge lost the Black
vote in a judicial election,
because his last name was
"Chavies" and Black voters
thought he was Hispanic. As
Hispanics constitute 60 per-
cent of the population, many
politicians are obviously pan-
dering to those voters.
In the last election, a Black
candidate used his grand-
mothers name "Camacho" in
order to lure Hispanic voters.
This caused some outrage
among Black lawyers, and he
was not endorsed by the
Wilkie Ferguson Bar
Association. Nevertheless,
Judge Peter Adrien won the
election, some believe in part
due to his appeal to Hispanic
voters and the endorsement of
Joe Carollo. Adrien's opponent
was Judge Harnage, who ruled
against Joe Carollo in his
divorce case.
The danger of ethnic name
voting is that good candidates
lose because they do not have
a "winning last name" and not
because they are not qualified.
Many lawyers are upset
because Judge Shirlyon

Courthouse wags are saying that South Florida won't have
enough jails if officials continue to arrest felons and suspect-
ed criminals who are not U.S. citizens. Illegal airlines who are
convicted felons or are wanted for murder, sexual battery on
a child, drug trafficking and domestic violence are being tar-
geted. Stay tuned.

Miami city officials have another embarassing problem on
their crowded plate. City Commissioner Johnny Winton got
drunk in a bar at the airport and beat up a couple of police
officers after he became annoyed when his flight to Houston
was delayed because of bad weather.

Most lobbyists in Florida are running scared since they lost
their battle to derail our tough view disclosure law where they
must turn in once confidential information on how much
they get paid by their clients. Look for a lot of raised eyebrows
if the truth is revealed.

Floridians are rejoicing over the resounding defeat for
Florida Power & Light after the Public Service Commission on
Monday cut $554 million from FPL's request for $1.7 million
in storm surcharges. After the sorry performance our areas
received after Katrina and Wilma most residents feel we need
to take a much closer look at our franchise utilities. Stay
tuned.

Some folk are wondering if residents of our area are getting
a heavy dose of bad luck. While recovering from hurricane
Wilma and looking forward to a bountiful summer tourist
season we are now hit by a series of alligator attacks that are
making many afraid to go near the water.

For the upcoming 2008 presidential election, do you think there is
a chance that a Black or a woman will become the next president
of the United States? If so, who?

has never
been one -. -.
and I just can't see it happen-
ing. I think it's a possibility
that if there would be a
woman president that Hilary
Clinton might be a good can-
didate. The reality is there
isn't going to be a Black pres-
ident. The reason why is
because our leaders aren't
really doing anything to put
us in that position."
ESTER SUMMERS
"I think
in the

will but
not this

can get so
far in the

but we
won't have

be there long. I think our

for us to have a Black presi-

she did a lot for Blacks and

people who I think would be
good candidates are South
Central, California
Congresswoman, Maxine
Waters and Shiela Jackson
from Texas because they are
very strong Black women who
aren't afraid to stand up to
Bush or anyone else. I'm so
disappointed in the
Democrats sitting on their
butts and knees not doing
anything. I think there is a
50% chance of a Black presi-
dent being elected because of
the status of Bush. I believe
Hilary would be a strong can-
didate too because she has a
proven track record."
LIUQURIA BROWN
"There is
no chance.
It would be
hard to
believe
that a
Black manr
or woman
become
the next
president
in 2008. If there was a chance
of a woman president though,
I believe Hilary Clinton can do
it because she and her hus-
band did a lot for Black peo-
ple when Bill [Clinton] was
the president. I think it can


be a Black president but not
anytime soon. Not in this life-
time."
ROBERT REVERE
"It will
never hap-
pen. Not in
the 2008
election or i
anytime in
the future.
The reason
I say that is
because the
only time
you see the
Black leaders like Reverend Al
Sharpton or Reverend Jesse
Jackson is when controversy is
stirring around. I think if there
was a woman president she
would be a white one because
that's just [how] things work in
these times. I'll vote for any
Democrat though as long as
their last name isn't Bush."
GREG ALLEN
"There is a
real slim
chance we
can have a
Black presi-
dent. Life is
too crazy
these days
for that to
happen.
These days
are -similar --
to back in the days when slavery
existed except for they just don't
have the chains and whips. The
world is not ready for a Black
president primarily because the
white people won't allow it. Our
Black leaders don't show up
when there is a cause and our
people don't stick together. That
is why we only have a small
chance of that happening."

driver-side door of a 1998 Dodge Ram in the rear parking
lot at the restaurant Mia Cucina, located at 20385

6,000 troups to guard Mexican border


Bush between rock and hard place


WASHINGTON President
Bush called Monday night for a
one-year deployment of up to
6,000 National Guard troops at
the U.S.-Mexico border, saying
that "for decades, the United
States has not been in com-
plete control of its borders."


Though he repeated his call
for a program to allow undocu-
mented immigrants to work
temporarily in the USA, Bush
used a televised address from
the Oval Office to emphasize
new border security proposals,

include many of the estimated
12 million illegal immigrants
already in the USA.
"All elements of this problem
must be addressed together or
none of them will be solved at
all," Bush said during the 17-
minute speech.
The National Guard deploy-
ment is designed to assist the
Border Patrol with intelligence
analysis, surveillance and
other support activities, Bush
said. He said that Guard units
would not conduct "direct law
enforcement activities," such
as arresting illegal immigrants.
Senate Democratic leader
Harry Reid of Nevada ques-
tioned the plan's effectiveness.
He said the National. Guard is
already stretched by Iraq and
natural disasters.
House Republicans pushed
through an immigration bill
last year that was devoted to
border enforcement and had no
provisions for temporary work-
ers. The Senate failed to pass a
bill earlier this year.

Duke haunted by
rape allegations
By Mike Baker
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) A grand
jury meeting Monday could
consider additional indict-
ments stemming from allega-
tions'made by a stripper who
says she was raped and beaten
by three men at a Duke
University lacrosse party. Two
players already have been
charged with rape, kidnapping
and sexual assault and
Prosecutor Mike Nifong has
said he hoped to charge a third
person.
Defense attorneys have
insisted all the players are
innocent, pointing to DNA
tests they said found no
Match between the 46 players
tested and the accuser. The
*dancer, a 27-year-old Black
student at nearby North
Carolina Central University,
has told police she was raped
-and beaten by three white
men.
On Sunday, thousands of
students celebrated their
graduation at Duke, where
University Provost Peter Lange
blamed the "sad events and
relentless media coverage" of
the case for tarnishing the
school's image.
Some graduates at com-
mencement had jersey num-
bers of indicted sophomore
lacrosse players Reade
Seligmann of. Essex Fells,
N.J., and Collin Finnerty of
Garden City, N.Y. written on
their mortarboard caps.
Seligmann is scheduled to,
appear in court on Thursday.
There were 11 seniors on the
Duke men's lacrosse roster,
but it wasn't clear if they were
among those at Sunday's cer-
emony.
The rape allegations led
Duke to cancel the lacrosse
team's season and accept the
resignation of Coach Mike
Pressler. Duke President
Richard Brodhead also initiat-
ed a series of internal investi-
gations, one of which conclud-
ed administrators were slow to
react to the scandal in part
because of initial doubts about
the accuser's credibility.


Neighbor saves

FIRE
continued from 1A
and pointed to smoke coming
from a second story window.
The girls' pregnant mother and
their father were in the crowd.
The girls' father ran up the
stairs with Williams and
unlocked the apartment door.
Published reports indicate
that .the girls were in a locked
bedroom. Williams and the
father had to kick the bedroom
door in to gain entry.
Neighbors who spoke confi-
dentially speculated that the
parents had no child care for
the children and left them alone
while the mother worked at an
unidentified business nearby.

Congressman says he won't resign il
c?1, -, ''J 11 11w^T T~


Rep. William J. Jefferson (D-
La.) said Monday that lie will
not resign in the face of a fed-
err;' investigation that. has net-
ted vwo guilty pleas from people
who implicated him in a
bribery scheme.
"I would take full responsibil-
ily lor any crime that I commit-
ted. ii that were the case. But I
will not plead guilty to some-
tiling I did not do, no matter
how things are made to look
and no matter the risk," said
Jefferson, who is in his eighth
term.
He took no questions and
denied rumors that he was
announcing his resignation.
"Far from it," ie said, "I have
come to declare, among other


things, mly continued intention
to serve."
He said tie guilty pleas,
made in federal court in
Virginia, came from friends
who succumbed to enormous
pressure from the federal gov-
ernment.
In January, former Jefferson
aide Brett Pfeffer pleaded guilty
to bribery-related charges.
Vernon Jackson, chief execu-
tive of iGate Inc., a Louisville
telecommunications firm,
pleaded guilty May 3 to bribery,
admitting he paid more than
$400,000 to Jefferson and his
family members in exchange
for the congressman's help
obtaining business deals in
Nigeria, Ghana and Cameroon.

Luncheon held to induct Lilies of the Valley


By Brandyss Howard
Miami Times Writer

According to its mission
statement, "Lily of the Valley is
a program to help District 5's
homeless women gain the skills
and inspiration necessary to
strengthen and sustain them-
selves into a positive new life."
To that end, the women are
provided free housing lor a year
and a variety of services
including yoga classes, coun-
seling, employment assistance
and mentoring.
On May 12, Commissioner
Michelle Spence-Jones and
Congresswoman Carrie P.
Meek celebrated the introduc-
tion of the Lily of the Valley
.program and honored women
of the Lotus House at their
location on 217 NW 15th
Street.
Twelve prominent women;
Cirabel Olsen, Julie Grimes,
Brenda Riggins, Nifretta
Thomas, Aletha Player, Rosario
Kennedy, Erica Wright, Illeana
Hernandez Acosta, Ruby
Adams, Carol Ann' Taylor,
Nicole Wyle and Suzan
McDowell were inducted into
the meentoring program for
homeless women in Lotus
House and Summerville in
District 5. The honorees were
recognized for their profession-
al excellence and commitment
to empower women in the com-
munity with a pinning ceremo-
ny.
After their initiation, the
inductees presented each
woman of the Lotus House with
a personal gift and a few words
of encouragement. Acceptance
into the program required a
pledge of dedication to mentor
and a devotion of love and time
to assist the women during
their transitional period into a
more productive lifestyle.
The Lotus house provides
transitional housing for home-
less women. It is a newly reno-
vated apartment complex that
houses up to thirty women.
Camillus House started the
Summerville residence pro-
gram in April 2001 to offer per-
manent, affordable housing for
47 families. A total of 126 beds
are provided in a campus-style
facility including efficiencies
and one, two and three bed-
room units.
Congressman Meek greeted
the congregation by saying
"these are real women who
have a purpose and are doing
things." She personally
thanked Constance Collins, the
Lilies of the Valley president,
for the Lotus House and said it
has been an honor and a privi-
lege to be part of such a won-
derful organization.
Commissioner Spence-Jones
formed the program in partner-
ship with Camillus House, the
Commission on the Status of
Women, Burger King
Corporation and the Carrie P.
Meek Foundation. She said it
was touching to see people who
didn't look like us that wanted
to change the conditions of
Overtown. Constance Collins is
white.
Spence-Jones said she ini-
tially didn't know anything
about the organization, but
read a published article about
it and decided to drive by the
location. Tears formed in her
eyes as she recalled how she
felt when she first walked in
the facility. "I felt the presence
of God," Spence-Jones said.
Spence-Jones said the white
walls may serve as a subliminal
message to keep the area
clean. Officials and inductees
wore shades of white and
cream in accordance with tihe
interior of the Lotus House.
The ceremony was followed
by a presentation of donations,
including a $50,000 check pre-
sented to Collins from the City
of Miami.

Opa-locka wants to fight crime with 'Shotspotter'
By Jarrell Douse where gunshots were fired. Shotspotter's sensors to regis- measures 4.2. While shopping
Miami Times Writer The system is comprised of a ter the location of shots fired. around for tools to fight crime,


During recent months, crime
in Opa-locka has snuffed out
tlie lives of several of its youth-
ful residents. The death of five
year-old Melanise Malone,
Johnny Lee Henderson Jr., 19
and more recently, Sharika
Wilson, 19, and Antwan Jones,
30, have become the casualties
of innocent by standing or
intentional aim.
In effort to curb the city's pre-
occupation with street gun-
play, Opa-locka's police Chief
James Barry Wright is looking
at unconventional alternatives.
To announce a new aspect of
his crime reduction strategy,
Wright held a press conference
at Opa-locka City Hall to intro-
duce the tentative implementa-
tion of the Shotspotter, a device
that gauges the impact of a
firearm's discharge.
Every firearm has an acoustic
fingerprint, according to Scott
Manderville, representative of
the Santa Clara, California-
based manufacturer. As he
demonstrated how the system
operates, Manderville explained
that The Shotspotter is
designed to tell dispatchers and
police officers the location from


three-layered function. Layer
one is worn by officers
equipped with a ,GPS tracking
monitor to determine the posi-
tion of officers and military per-
sonnel when en
route to the loca-
tion of fired
shots.
Layer two,
according to
Wright, is to be
integrated into :
patrol car laptop .,'
computers to
expedite the offi-
cers' arrival on *<
the scene of the
suspected gun-
fire. Layer three,'
the most. intri-
cate and incon-
spicuous is an
environmentally
safe device that
sits on top of
buildings to
specifically listen Chief James
for gunshots
using multiple acoustic trian-
gulations used to detect gun-
shot activity.
Friday's presentation demon-
strated that it takes approxi-
mately five seconds for the


Manderville added that multi-
ple gunshots can be detected
with the use of firearms of .22
calibers or greater magnitude.
Concerns about firecrackers
being mistaken
for gunfire were
also addressed.
Manderville said
in order for fire-
crackers to alert
the sensors, the
explosive must
have a mini-
mum M-80
potency.
The manufac-
S turer asserts
that the system
is equipped to
specifically rec-
ognize that a
firearm has
been dis-
charged. When
it does, a com-
puterized mes-
Barry Wright sage is sent to
the dispatcher
who then informs policemen of
the vicinity of the gunfire.
The Shotspotter system costs
approximately $366,000 for the
starter kit, which covers up to
two square miles. Opa-locka


ending the funding ior Lneir
implementation is also neces-
sary. The department is report-
edly looking for grants and
other funding sources to pay for
the new technology.
Wright is pleased that 2005
saw a 13 percent decrease in
crime in Opa-locka, however,
the department is looking to
put an even greater dent in the
city's illicit activity. To that
end, the city is looking to hire
seven new officers by the end of
the month to increase the
number of officers patrolling
the area.
Other cities riddled with
crime have adopted the use of
the Shotspotter system as part
of their preventative arsenal.
Gary, Indiana; Charleston,
South Carolina; Washington
D.C. and Glendale, Arizona
have implemented the program
to combat crime.
Chief Wright said the City of
Opa-locka's mission is to make
arrests in criminal activities
and to communicate to the
public that the police depart-
ment is doing all that can be
done to ensure community and
commuter safety within the
city.

iA i.'anc; wa"s so incensed by
my l, ',lioi .ha( parents
take o day year to play
hookv \vi ll'th :- children that
she decc:i- d to can(:cel her sub-
scripilion (o our newspaper.
While I i r aspect her opinion and
her decision to sever ties with
us, i ociie--e she is missing the
"fore-st i.; thde trees."
The ~::.oky suggestion was
one o-f sev"n that I included in
a ivMa" i" article "Seven tips for
more meaningful mothering."
The reader and I agree thal
education is important. Where
we disagree is Ihat all of our
children's education occurs ii;
a classroom.n
Years ago I g-rappled with the
decision co take my two small-
er chilciren out of school for a
couple ot days to accompany
me on a trip to see my brother
and his family in Virginia. I
consulted lmy daughter's
teacher. planning to secure my
child's school work in advance
so that she could complete it
while we were away. What the
teacher said surprised me, very
pleasantly.
Mrs. Kocur told me that what
Steplanie couid learn first-
hand while visiting Virginia
would greatly exceed whatever


is a good thing
she had in her lesson plans for
the two clays in question. Our
conversation on the impor-
tance of children being exposed
to learning opportunities out-
side of the classroom was one
of the best we ever had. We
agreed that in addition to
Stephanie completing the
school assignments, she would
also write a report on her trip.
A parent who believes that
the all education occurs in a
classroom and that the school
system is solely responsible for
educating his/her children is
doing them a grave disservice.
Parents who are concerned
with their child merely showing
up to school everyday send
their child the message that
quantity exceeds quality. What
children do while they're in
school is far more important
than their receipt of a perfect
attendance award.
Some children grow up to be
adults still searching for recog-
nition for merely showing up. I
don't understand adults who
wrack up so many sick and
vacation days that their
employer must force them to
take time off. All work and no
play is unhealthy, literally.
People who work too much


have higher
stress levels.
And a person
with a higher
level of stress is
more likely to
suffer a heart


attack or stroke.
As a mother, I am obligated
to teach my children, through
example, the importance of
balance. They know that my
husband and I expect them to
do well academically and to be
on their best behavior. They
also know that having fun and
knowing when to take a break
are also respected.
It was during one of our
hooky days that Stephanie and
I taught each other a valuable
lesson about surrender. As we
braced ourselves for a particu.I
larly -big incoming wave, my
then nine-year girl told me
"Ma, you have to'be one with
the wave!"
Our post-wave discussion
was about metaphors and how
being "one with the wave
could help navigate some of
life's challenges. We talked
about how sometimes instead
of fighting a problem, becoming
still enough to learn the lesson
in the problem is a more effec--
tive approach.
No, dear reader, all education
does not happen in the class-
room.

New book shows

how to forgive
NASHVILLE, TN
(BlackNews.com) How many
of us have a need to truly let go
and forgive the person who
brought us into this world?
What would this world look like
if we all decided to forgive one
another, including ourselves? Is
there a better gift to offer than
forgiveness? Has forgiving your
Mom been difficult in the past?
The first step in the process
of letting go of stuff and for-
giving is to acknowledge that
you have stuff that keeps you
from forgiving. One must first
take inventory of that stuff,
according to Darren L.
Johnson, author of Letting Go
of Stuf: Powerful Secrets To
Simplify Your Life. Taking
inventory will help you to
bring about acceptance of the
stuff in your life, which can
lead you to the path of forgive-
ness.
Forgiveness is part of what
lies between acknowledging
and accepting the stuff in
your life.

Park.


Bishop John Wilson


Yes, I have a zeal!

Yes, I have a zeal! It's from
the Lord's house and it is eat-
ing me up.
I apply Psalm 69:9, when I
read where a 14 year old Black
child was murdered and a new
wave of HIV may lurk around
the corner.
I look for a solution for some
of these facts. I believe Miami
has a lot of churches. They are
all over the city and county.
Lets get busy and pray to our
God. I know God has the
answer. Will you join me,
Miami, in prayer for our coun-
try. I am ready now.
Don't forget the mourning
bench and the tarrying room.

Miami Beach Police murder Black twin babies.

White Officers Eric Garcia
and Makin Pomeres said to
three Black men Maurice i
Laurent and others you need
to get your ass off the beach.
They replied I thought we were
free to go where we want to
(see Blackcode.com). Then
they were assaulted and 6 14-( 5:4
arrested for no reason in front
of witnesses, Symonette and
others. After the arrest the
young black man said "officer
you know I didn't hit that
policeman". Officer Pomeres
answered and said "I know
you didn't hit the officer, but I
must back up my partner
(Garcia)." Witness Symonette and others heard Pomeres. Officer Garcia seeing his partner was
overheard by witnesses, got upset and arrested witness Symonette to stop him from being a
witness. By following him one block across the street threatening to fight him and he said "you
think you have rights? The only rights you have, is the right to remain silent. Calling him nig-
ger several times. He went as far as to say if you do not like what I called you do something
about. Trying to upset Symonette to force him to violently resist, but Symonette wouldn't.
This is white Miami Beach Police brutality, (not all Miami Beach Policemen are bad). Maurice
Laurent has been jailed since January 21, 2006 on false charges of assaulting an officer. He
has lost his job, home, his aunt became very ill, and his pregnant girlfriend. Tausha Vialvia,
was so scared and upset that she had a miscarriage and lost her baby twins = Miami Beach
Police murderers! Isa. 61:1 open the prison houses.

Talking without
By Brandyss Howard
Miami Times Writer
Non-verbal communication is one of the
strongest forms of personal expression.
Have you ever found yourself going
through more faces in a day than a plastic
surgeon? The shrugs, sighs and smirks we
unconsciously display often say more than
we intend. People can read you like a book
when you wear your emotions on your
sleeves.
Sometimes things are better left unsaid,
but make sure your face doesn't do the
talking for you. I've learned that if you are
a very transparent person, the different
feelings you go through in a day speak
louder than any scream released in a state
of frustration. We must learn to relax our
face muscles as it takes more to frown than
it does to smile.
It has not been uncommon for people to


moving your lips
look at me and automatically ask "what's
the matter?" or "is something wrong?" If
others took notice, then I obviously failed
at concealing my feelings.
It's like that non-verbal cue card you
were given in school displaying pictures of
the same 'persona' going through different
emotions. Our teachers challenged us to
guess each mood to learn their distinc-
tions. If we are taught to recognize these
'faces' in our adolescence, what makes it
any different in a church, work or other
professional setting?
Take heed to the fact that you are often
being 'studied' and the way others per-
ceive you may impact the way you are
treated. A first impression is a lasting
impression; just make sure it isn't made
before you have the chance to open your
mouth.
As the song says, "It's written all over
your face, you don't have to say a word."


Pretty dark-skinned girl


Compliments without adjectives


By Brandyss Howard
Miami Times Writer
When I was younger, I did-
n't understand the impor-
tance of embracing the
imperfections and differ-
ences in my appearance
compared to others. My skin
was either too dark or my
hair wasn't long enough.
I found myself asking my
mother for a perm before I
was even old enough to
know the effects it could
have on my hair. Constant
teasing from classmates just
added to the low self-esteem
issues that plagued me for
many years. I found myself
looking at bleaching creams
and hair extensions as a
means of identifying with
what society considered
beautiful.
Born and raised in New
York, I was surrounded by a


melting pot of peo-
ple, yet still felt that
maybe if I was a lit-
tle taller, a little
lighter or had a 'bet-
ter' texture of hair, I
too would be beauti-
ful.
I once aspired to
model, but reality
set in as I flipped Ho
through magazines
and was unable to find a
woman that I could identify
with. Iman, Beverly Johnson
and Grace Jones were the
only dark-skinned women
who stuck out to me as I
flipped through the pages of
Ebony, Jet, and Essence.
As years passed and I
became older, I learned that I
wasn't just a New Yorker, but
one whose family is of
Bahamian descent. In my
travels to Miami every year, I
saw more people who looked


like me who took pride in
their appearance.
I also noticed more sistahs
with curves and
darker pigments in
the media, which
allowed me to accept
my complexion and
feel comfortable in
my own skin. I felt
better about myself
on the inside and
learned how to dis-
ward play that radiance on
the outside. I carried
my head high, pushed my
shoulders back and
embraced the way God made
me.
When I moved to the South
permanently, I would hear
people say, "What up Black?"
or "You a pretty dark-
skinned girl." I'could care
less for the first statement as
I found it a bit ignorant, but
would usually thank some-
one for the latter.
I then thought to myself, "

Beauty identified by unique shades


PRETTY
continued from 1C

Why do I have to be a pretty
dark-skinned girl?" Why could-
n't I just be a pretty girl? You
don't usually hear someone
identify a shade when compli-
menting a light-skinned
woman.
Why is it necessary to attach
an adjective when referring to
the facial structure of our dark-
er sistahs. One could insinuate
that women of my complexion
are not usually found attrac-
tive.
Are we still that far behind
that we continue to live by 'light
is right, black is wack' or the
brown paper bag method? The
thing that I love about Black
people is that our beauty is
found in all different shades.

Malcolm X Remembered
"By any means necessary'"
May 19, 1925 Feb. 21, 1965
Malcolm X was born
Malcolm Little on May 19 in
Omaha, NE. Malcolm's
father, Earl, a Baptist minis-
ter and follower of the teach-
ings of Marcus Garvey, was
run out of town and the fam-
ily moved to Lansing, MI.
Earl Little was thrown in


front of a street car and
killed when Malcolm was six
years old. Malcolm dropped
out of school after the eighth
grade and started running
the streets in Detroit,
Boston and Harlem as a
pimp, drug dealer and a
thief.
At age 21, he was arrested
and sentenced to ten years
in the state prison. While in
prison, Malcolm began
studying the teachings of
Elijah Muhammad. In 1952,
he was released and moved
to Michigan with his oldest
brother, who was a Muslim.
He would later meet
Muhammad at the Nation of
Islam headquarters in
Chicago and he was given
the name 'X' to replace his
slave name of Little.
Malcolm became a
spokesman for more than 12
years and traveled all over
the country. He not only
attracted new members, but
gave many Blacks the ideol-


ogy of Black pride and that
"Black is beautiful."
Elijah Muhammad sus-
pended Malcolm X for 90
days after making comments
about the JFK assassina-
tion. Malcolm left the Nation
of Islam and formed his own
group called Muslim
Mosque, Inc. in Harlem. He
started the Organization of
Afro American Unity in
Europe, Africa and the
United States. Malcolm
made a pilgrimage to Mecca
and converted to Orthodox
Islam and changed his name
to El Hajj-Malik Shabazz
and renounced Elijah
Muhammad and his teach-
ings. On returning to the
states, he embraced a more
humanistic and global view
of the 'Black problem' in
America and the world.
Several attempts were made
on his life after turning away
from the Nation of Islam. He
received threatening calls,
hate mail and house bomb-
ings. On February 21, 1965,
Malik El Shabazz, was shot
by three men from the
Nation of Islam at the
Audubon Ballroom in
Harlem.

Secret to being pre tu at prom


ENHANCE YOUR BEAUTY AT PROM BY KNOWING WHAT WORKS FOR YOU


What to wear to prom is one of
the hardest decisions a girl has
to make. She will have to choose













mp



1\~ L\\


the perfect dress that fits her
personality. Below are some tips
on finding the perfect dress for
you:

DOWNSIZE MY HIPS!
Look for: A full-skirted ball
gown or any gown that draws
the focus upward (see picture
4). With this style, eyes will be
off your hips and on your slen-
der waist.
Skip: Sheaths and other
superfitted styles, or V-necks,
which lead the eye downward.
GIVE ME SOME CURVES!
Look for: A fitted style like:a
sheath (picture 2), since so
many girls would kill for a
superslim figure, consider
showing yours off in If you
want to look a little more volup-
tuous, try an A-line style (pic-
ture 1). It'll show off your slen-
der frame while also creating
the illusion of curviness with a
fuller skirt.
Skip: Strapless and halter
styles if your collarbone and
shoulders are on the bony side,
they'll make you look even skin-
nier.

FLATTEN OUT MY TUMMY!
Look for: Empire-waist gowns.
They will give you a long, slim
look (picture 3) or try a corset-
style bodice, which will shrink
your waistline while emphasiz-
ing your bust.
Skip: Princess-cut gowns (pic-
ture 1), basque waists and
sheaths (picture 2), which will


draw attention to your midsec-
tion. Other no-nos: sashes and
horizontal stripes.


HIDE MY HEAVY ARMS!
Look for: Short sleeves, off-the
shoulder necklines or see-
through lace sleeves. They will
all camouflage upper arms that
aren't super shapely. Look for a
dress that has a sweetheart
neckline, which will draw atten-
tion to your bust instead of your
arms.
Skip: Sleeveless, strapless and
spaghetti-strap dresses. If you
have your heart set on a strap-
less style, look for a dress that
comes with a wrap (or find one
that goes with your gown).
HELP ME LOOK TALLER!
Look for: Sheaths (picture 2)
and A-lines (picture 1). These
make petites look sweet. It's best
to keep it simple and these sil-
houettes will help you add some
length.
Skip: Big ball gowns (picture
4) if you're on the small side, too
much dress will look over-
whelming.


MINIMIZE MY BIG BOOTY!
Look for: A strapless ball gown
or any other full-skirted style


(like the ball gown in picture 4).
It will camouflage your rear.
Look for a corset-style or other
type of fitted bodice.
Skip: Sheath styles (picture 2)
or anything made with mega-
clingy material.

Bio: "I will begin a new jour-
ney after I graduate from high
school" says LaShantavia. Her
hobbies include writing, read-
ing and shopping. She has a
passion for competing in
essay competitions and has
recently placed first in the
United Teachers of Dade
Black History month essay
contest. When thinking about
LaShantavia and her abilities
as a student, the one thing
that keeps coming to mind is
her aforementioned diligence.
She possesses outstanding
leadership qualities. Her per-
formance at school and in
extracurricular activities is
remarkable. LaShantavia's
ability to work with peers is
another trait that will bode
well for her as she moves on to
the next level. For four years
she worked collaboratively
with the members of the VICA
Skills USA club and served as
parliamentarian in her junior
year. She also ran for Vice
President her senior year.
LaShantavia is an executive
officer for the Ladies of


Essence Club and a member
of the Yearbook Club. In addi-
tion to LaShantavia's many
contributions in school, she
serves as a tutor at a local
after school program in her
community and has complet-
ed over 1500 community serv-
ice hours. Recently,
LaShantavia was accepted
into Johnson & Wales
University's college of busi-
ness and will be attending
there this fall. She has
received many scholarships
including two from Johnson &
Wales and the Horatio Alger
Leadership Scholarship. Her
aim in life is to become a
Crime Scene Investigator
while building a career in
business administration and
real estate. Many would say
LaShantavia is undoubtedly
the type of student that has
potential for great success at
the next level. Her natural
'abilities combined with her
work ethic and ability to
evolve 'a'cademicaly' y and
socially will someday grant
her the key to success.

and like a lot of kids born since the early '80s, was
initially into his parents' favorites but eventually
fell under the spell of hip-hop. Around the time he
reached puberty, he discovered his singing voice.
Within a couple years, he had a recording contract
with Jive and was lined up with several production
and songwriting heavyweights (Jermaine Dupri,
Bryan-Michael Cox, Dre & Vidal, Sean Garrett and
Storch) for his first album, released in November
of 2005. His current hit single is Yo excuse me
miss is currently at the top of the charts. He has
also guest starred on sitcoms like UPN's One on
One.With this success, he is sure to be around for
a while and possibly seen in movies in the near
future.

A bakery to help everyone

Year Established
March 2005

Owner
Antella Townsend-Jones

Number of full-time/part-
time employees
three full-time/ six part-
time

Products/Services
We offer breakfast and
lunch sandwiches, soup,
assorted breads, coffee,
espresso and cappuccino.
We have french, latin, neo-
soul and southern style
desserts. We also make
cakes and pies from
grandma's recipes to ele-
gant wedding, birthday
and specialty cakes.

Future goals
My husband Vernon and I
have a vision to expand
the business into a fran-
chised conglomerate and
to eventually house my
corporate headquarters in
a larger building like the
old Entermann's Bakery
that was located on 62nd
Street and NW 32nd
Avenue. Antella's ...will
become known across the
globe and our products will
be in every major grocery
chain nationally and inter-
nationally. I would like to
see my bakery impact our
community by employing
people that society consid-
ers as outcast and does
not want to help. Felons,
homeless and recovering
drug users and alcoholics
all fall under that category.
My goal is use my business
to help as many people as I
can so they can get back
into mainstream society.

Why did you start this
business and how has it
grown?
I believe in my spiritual
leader. I love God. I have
been baking out of my
home for quite a while but
was unsure of what I want-
ed to do. I prayed on what
to do and everywhere I
turned I received the same
responses. I decided to
open my business and I
have had an overwhelming
response. My first busi-
ness project was providing
the desserts for
Commissioner Spence
Jones' campaign in 2005.
Since then, I have had the
chance to do work with
Alonzo Mourning, Magic
Johnson and many other
high profile clients. God
gave me a gift and I want to
use it to better the king-
dom.


Owner


Who does your business
best serve and why?
Logistically, the Liberty
City, Allapattah, Buena
Vista and Little Haiti areas
are my main targets.
However, it is my desire to
serve the morning and
evening commuters in the
tri-county area and even-
tually the globe as a result
of e-commerce.

What obstacles have you
faced and how did you
overcome them?
The biggest obstacles we
have faced are people not
knowing we are here and
us moving into an area
that was on the decline
economically. However, we
have overcome those prob-
lems because the more
people we serve [help us]
overcome those chal-
lenges. We hope that our
presence will help to revive
and illuminate this once
booming area with the
ingenuity and support of
Commissioner Michelle
Spence-Jones. We are a
work in progress. I want to
let people know we are
here to serve them.

How have your past expe-
riences helped meet the
needs of your clients?
I still hold a full-time job
as a litigation assistant in
a major law firm here in
Miami-Dade County and
due to my formal training,
it lends me organizational
skills to run a successful
business. Due to the
expert training and exten-
sive experience of our pas-
try chef, Juan 'Cheech'
Corporan, we are able to
provide a plethora of items
for our customers and
clients.

Where did you get the
name of your business
and does it have any sig-
nificant meaning?
The name of the company
is my first name. My moth-
er's college roommate at
what was then Florida
Memorial College St.
Augustine, gave her the
name. I learned my name
means light. I feel blessed
to have the name Antella
because Antella's Fine
Baked Goods is here to
illuminate 7th Avenue.


Haitian job fair tremendous success


Over 40 participating employers offered career
and training opportunities for the community


Miami-Dade Transit, along
with 47 privately-owned com-
panies, such as Murton
Roofing and Home Depot,
were part of the prospective
employers that participated in
the Haitian Labor Day Job
Fair recently held at the Notre
Dame D'Haiti Catholic
Church in Little Haiti. Miami-
Dade County Mayor Carlos
Alvarez and South Florida
Workforce hosted the event
which drew in hundreds of
Little Haiti residents.
"The purpose of this job fair
is to reach out to the Haitian-


Americanl community with
employment opportunities
that will help improve their
lives and for employers to
have a chance to find quali-
fied candidates to fill the
available positions in their
companies," said Mayor
Alvarez.
Miami-Dade Transit was a
key player in the fair, not only
as a co-sponsor, but as a par-
ticipating vendor offering
great employment opportuni-
ties through its bus operator
and mechanic trainee pro-
grams, which started in late


April of this year.
"We are glad to be able to
offer members of this commu-
nity the opportunity to join
our transit family under our
bus operator and mechanic
trainee programs, made possi-
ble thanks to the People's
Transportation Plan," said


Miami-Dade Transit Director
Roosevelt Bradley.

ESTABLISHMENT OF DBE GOAL FOR MIA
SOUTH TERMINAL DUAL TAXIWAY PROJECT
No. MDAD #K150A
FOR FISCAL YEAR 2006
The Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) is preparing to establish a DBE goal for
participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises for the Dual Taxi Way Construction
project at Miami International Airport for Fiscal Year 2006 (October 1, 2005 through
September 30, 2006). MDAD invites comments from minorities, small businesses,
women's and general contractor groups, community organizations, and other officials or
organizations which may have information concerning the availability of disadvantaged
and non-disadvantaged business, the effects of discrimination on opportunities for DBEs,
and what might constitute a "level playing field for participation of DBEs in MDAD
projects. A "level playing field" is defined, as the amount of participation DBE firms would
have in MDAD projects if there were no discrimination against them.
MDAD is proposing a DBE goal for participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises
for MIA South Terminal Dual Taxi Way construction project of sixteen (16.0%) percent,
based on information currently available. The rationale for this goal and supporting
information may be requested from the MDAD Minority Affairs Office by calling 305-876-

How to
stop internet
identity theft
Part Three
While some of the most advanced
security software uses "heuristics" a
method that relies on looking at the actu-
al behavior of malicious code to deter-
mine whether it might be attempting to
create a viral infection the mainstay
of any antivirus application is its data-
base of signature files. An out-of-date
database can weaken your security soft-
ware's protective barrier and make it
much easier for thieves to steal your
identity. So it is imperative that your
security software always uses the most
recent signature files available from your
security vendor.
Of course, your software might want to
update itself right when you're in the mid-
dle of doing something on your PC that
SJ requires most of your processor's power.
And you might be tempted to click the
delay button. But when the software
prompts you to update, resist the urge to
postpone it. The more current your soft-
ware is, the less likely it will be that you
have to cancel your credit cards as a
result of identity theft.
It is also important to learn about the
settings for your security software's
S update features. Some programs will let
you choose a time interval for regular
updates. Other programs provide an
option to do it automatically. In most
mainstream security software, these set-
tings are relatively easy to find.
In much the same way that the soft-
ware gives you the ability to schedule
software updates, most popular security
packages give you the ability to schedule
complete system scans for intruders.
While these scans often slow the respon-,
siveness of other programs that you
might be running at the time, you should
avoid the temptation to cancel a scan just
because it is inconvenient. Also, it is very
important to scan your computer regular-
ly. Having the ability to detect and
remove harmful viruses and spyware that
can steal your identity is worthless if
your software does not run frequently
enough to keep you protected.

USE A LITTLE LINK LOGIC
As a routine safe-computing practice
that can help avoid many kinds of identi-
ty-stealing scams, you should always
enter a Web site's URL in a new browser
window. For example, if an e-mail claim-
ing to be from your bank asks you to log
in to verify your password or account
information, resist the temptation to click
on the link in the e-mail itself, regardless
of how authentic the message might
appear.
Do not be fooled by these common
tricks. One of the most effective methods
that phishers use is to send an e-mail
that looks exactly like the one you would
get from your bank, service provider, or
just about any kind of company that has
your sensitive financial information. While
these pieces of e-mail might look legiti-
mate, they secretly hide fake URLs and
potentially malicious script in the HTML
source code.
Here is one example of the kind of
messages designed to steal your account
information: "This e-mail is a reminder
that your eBay account information is sus-
pended. To avoid any interruption to your
service, including the ability to log on to
your eBay account, please update your
credit or debit card information by clicking
here and submitting our form." While the
text might sound completely authentic and
the e-mail might look perfectly legitimate,
replete with eBay graphics, resist the
temptation to follow the instructions.
In many cases, the actual link in the
HTML code will be different from the URL
displayed in the e-mail. In other words,
even if the piece of e-mail looks legitimate
and a link in it claims to take you to a
familiar and legitimate URL, the underly-
ing source might send you to an impos-
tor Web page that looks exactly like
eBay, but is designed to steal your per-
sonal information or bank account num-
ber. However, if you copy and paste the
included link into a new browser window
- or if you simply type the URL into
that window yourself you can avoid
this kind of trickery altogether.
Also consider installing a respected
browser toolbar to help protect you from
known fraudulent Web sites. One such
product is offered for free by Internet
service provider Earthlink. The toolbar is
called ScamBlocker and works by alert-
ing you before you visit a page that is on
Earthlink's list of known phishing sites.
There are many such toolbars on the
market some free, others not that
all do essentially the same thing. It is
likely that, eventually, all browsers will
have this technology built right in.

Little Haiti has job fair


JOB
'"continued from 5D

November 2002. The availability of
''new jobs is vital to boost the local
economy overall, Bradley added.
'' According to Mayor Alvarez, job
"fairs not only offer gainful employ-
ment to residents who are unem-
ployed, but they are a great place
')for those seeking job advancement
bor a career change.
> A great number of Little Haiti's
'residents. such as Mr. Jean Jean-
1'ouis, took advantage of the job


opportunities presented at the fair.
For him, this was a golden oppor-
tunity since he was already look-
ing for a better job.
"Even though right now I am
self-employed, I would like to have
a better job with benefits and a
higher pay," said Jean-Louis as he
walked out of the Transit booth
with a bus operator application
package.
Under the bus operator and
mechanic programs offered by
Transit, candidates hired receive
paid training and great benefits.

Responsibility, which set guide-
lines for the zone.
Many in the adult entertainment
industry opposed the plan, calling
it a step toward banning online
sexual content.
Larry Flynt, publisher of Hustler
magazine, wrote in comments to
ICANN that the plan is "an inher-
ently dangerous idea with no real
purpose. Only if it becomes a tool
of censorship will it achieve its
goal of preventing access to adult
content by minors, and if it falls
short of that goal, what reason for
it was there for it in the first
place?"
"This will create an electronic
ghetto easily targeted by lawmak-
ers who want to put adult websites
out of business and attempt to do
this by enacting laws to make
business difficult," said a com-
ment filed with ICANN by someone
identified only as "Romeo."
"If the move to .xxx is proposed
to be voluntary, then how can it
possibly succeed in what is pur-
ported to be its main goal pro-


tecting kids from inappropriate
materials?." wrote Chase Reyes of
the website ChasingBooty.com.
"One could choose to participate
in the segregation, or not, and
those that choose not to will have
an advantage that leads me to
believe very few will volunteer for
the move to .xxx."
Among those supporting the
plan was an individual identified
as John K, who wrote, "I find the
.xxx concept to be socially respon-
sible and helpful to all but illegal
child pornographers."
ICM Registry had no immediate
comment. Last year, the group
stated that it would manage the
domain "specifically for adult ori-
ented websites willing to adhere to
a set of industry best practices."
This, ICM contended would "help
protect children from exposure to
online pornography and also have
a positive impact on online adult
entertainment through voluntary
efforts of the industry."
The United States asked ICANN
last year to postpone the new top-
level domain, citing an "unprece-
dented" level of protests, including
some 6,000 letters and e-mails.
