ELECTION


ROLLE AND BRUTUS IN CLOSE RACE


Special to The Times

The candidates in County Commission Districts
2 differ sharply in background and campaign
funds raised. Some challengers appear to be
favored more by interests outside of the district,
yet, the races are important to showing how sin-
gle-member districting works despite outside
money and media preferences. Neither candidate
has provided a vision of the future as a reason to
vote. The winner of the race can serve for a full
four year term until 2010.

... Brutus hopes to take advantage
of his Haitian heritage, but has said
he is "running as an American, not
as a member of any one group ...


DISTRICT


3 COMMISSION RACE TIGHT


EDMONSON McELROY
... Edmonson served five years
on the El Portal Village Council
before being elected Mayor ...


Special to The Times

Barbara Carey-Shuler was so
entrenched and popular in the District
3 Commission seat that anyone who
came after would have opponents.
Unlike the race in Districts 2 and 4,
there appears to be almost ro personal
comments about the political or activist
service of the opponent. The winner of
the race can serve for two years, the
end of the term Carey-Shulei-r won in
2004.

Developer jailed in housing scandal


Rivero building luxury estate with stolen money


Whenrr State attorney
Katherine Rundle promised
jail time to every crooked
developer involved in the dis-
graceful Miami-Dade Housing
Agency scandal, many people
thought she was just blowing
smoke. Now it seems Rundle
meant every word she uttered.
Oscar Rivero, the kingpin
developer at the center of the
scandal, was arrested


Saturday on charges he spent
at least $736,000 in public
money meant for affordable
housing for the poor of this
community.
The money was supposed to
pay for 54 houses for the low-
income elderly in Little
Havana.
But 14 days after the
Miami-Dade Housing Agency
cut Rivero a check for


$806,000 in
November
2004, he
wired the
bulk of the
money to a
title company
to buy his
3 6 0 0 -
RIVERO square-foot
house in cash, according to
an arrest warrant signed by
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge
Stan Blake.


Prosecutors charged Rivero,
a 36-year-old lawyer and civic
leader, with two first-degree
felonies: grand theft and com-
mitting an organized scheme
to defraud. If convicted, he
would serve a minimum of 21
months in state prison.

Ft. Lauderdale resident is 112 years young


A man born in Haiti
in 1895 who now lives
in Lauderdale Lakes is
one of the oldest living
person in this century.
Vilsaint Uilaint was
honored by family and
friends on Sunday in
celebration of his
112th birthday. VIL
The birthday boy was born
in Jean Rabel, Haiti, where he
grew up and farmed until the
age of about 95, when he
came to America and settled
down with his daughter in
Fort Lauderdale. Though his
passport says he was born on.


Aug. 13, 1895, family
members say it was

He's nearly blind, but that
doesn't seem to stop him.


"My dad is still strong," said
his daughter, Hermantilde

The fight for affordable


housing continues

By Brandyss Howard
bhloward(cmiamitimesonline corn

The 14-point plan of action proposed by community organizations
and endorsed by Archbishop Favalora has been submitted to the
County Commission for review. These points were comprehensive and
drawn from the demands of those directly affected by the housing cri-
sis exacerbated by actions of those who took advantage of affordable
housing funds.
"Since the House of Lies was released, we've seen some level of
response to the corruption, but not to the housing crisis," said Sushma
Sheth, Miami Workers Center's Communication Director.
The plan has been forwarded to the County Manager and will be---

Times recommend best

among candidates

Tuesday's vote may be one of the most important to
the future of the state and community in many
years. The Miami Times analyzed the candidates
and issues that can improve the plight of those most in
need of public service. Races in which candidates did not
campaign for Black votes received less attention and
sometimes no endorsement.

THE MIAMI TIMES RECOMMENDS:
Democratic Primary
U. S. Representative District 17: Kendrick Meek is by
far the best and most prepared of the candidates.

Governor: Democrat: Rod Smith
Rod Smith's 1966 profile in courage in integrating his
high school is consistent with his record of support for
Black community issues as State Attorney and Senator.
Because of issues he has supported, such as restoration of
rights for ex-felons, as Governor he can push for them to
be passed into law. His opponent's disgraceful and unre-
pentant vote to compensate two Black men who had been
victims of a racist justice system is not balanced by any
sensitivity shown to Black community issues during his
almost 20 years of political office, despite Black support-
ers who defend his Pitts-Lee history.

Attorney General: Democrat: Walter "Skip" Campbell
Senator Campbell has been one of the most progressive
legislators on issues related to the Black community.

State Representative District 108: Eddie Lewis
The Miami Times received interest from only one candi-
date that provided us sufficient information on which to
make an informed recommendation.

State Representative District 104: Jacqui Colyer
Activist and educator Colyer has proven prepared and
assertive in representing those issues and people on
whose behalf she has acted. The incumbent is a nice and
intelligent person who understands the need for all Black
residents to work together without tribal divisions.
However, she has not been able to produce what the com-
munity needs at the state level.

County Commission District 2: Dorrin Rolle
Although the present housing crisis has illuminated
areas where the incumbent must improve his efforts as he
has done in social and economic development areas, Rolle
is still a better choice than his opponent, who focused
rhost of iiseanmpaign efforts in the Haitian community
until recently.

County Commission District 3: Audrey Edmonson
During her short time as a Commissioner, Edmonson
has proven her continued commitment to the best inter-
ests and results for her various constituencies. She is by
far the superior pubic servant Her opponent is a commit-
ted activist, but the community needs people who under-
stand the procedures and process where our government
benefits are distributed.

Miami-Dade School Board-District 2: Solomon Stinson
Sol Stinson is easily the candidate with the best support
from the Superintendent, the most in depth understand-
ing of the school system as well as the procedures and
process that control how our children will be educated. If
Stinson had on staff someone with Reaves' education,
assertiveness and courage, District 2 would be best
served.

County Question: Raise for the Commission: Yes
The present housing scandal and the many other areas
where county government has not served well should be
separated from the governmental issue of whether
Commissioners, who have not had a raise since the coun-
ty began, should be adequately paid. Passing this issue
would allow the county to stop adding benefits packages to
compensate for not paying adequate compensation for the
60 plus hours per week job.

Affordable housing: The system is failing us


I was on the waiting list for
public housing for five years.
Low-Income Families Fighting
Together (LIFFT) fought in 2004
to get people off of the waiting
list and make MDHA fill the
vacancies in public housing.
I now live in Liberty Square's


public housing projects, also
known as the Pork n' Beans
and am now a member of
LIFFT. I enjoy living in my place
with my three boys. It is our
home.
We are in a housing State of
Emergency. The mayor needs to


address this emergency now.
The money the developers and
MDHA stole was meant for peo-
ple like me who need housing.
It should be returned imme-
diately and be used to build
housing for those people who
were kicked out of Scott Carver


homes. The vacancies should
be filled and more housing
should be created.
This system is failing us.,We
want action.

Samantha Wadley,
member of LIFFT

Blacks Must Control Their Own Destiny


2A The Miami Times Au 6














Blacks Must Control Their Own Destiny


OPINION
The Miami Times, August 30-September 5, 2006 3A


Judge McWhorter's chal-
lenger had her husband file a
lawsuit against Judge
McWhorter in an attempt to
disqualify Judge McWhorter
in the upcoming election.
Judge McWhorter's defense
team was led by Joseph
Geller and Peggy Fisher with
support from John Kozyak,
Tucker Ronzetti, Ramon
Abadin, Tiffany Britton and
Reginald Clyne. Joe Geller
and Peggy Fisher filed a
motion to dismiss, which was
granted with prejudice by the
Honorable Thomas Barkdull,
III, a judge in Palm Beach
County. The scurrilous
attempt to knock Judge
McWhorter off the ballot has
failed. The voters can now
rightfully determine the out-
come of this important judi-
cial election, which pits a sea-
soned, honest and experi-
enced judge against a candi-
date who changes her name
for the election in order to
obtain the Hispanic vote. Do
not hesitate to vote for Judge
McWhorter.

County Manager
Cleaning Up
County Manager Burgess
should be commended for his
quiet, yet determined role in
cleaning up the County. He
tackled Water and Sewer, the
Housing Agency and now the
individuals who issue con-
tractor licenses. He did not
make a huge fanfare and just
quietly gathered the facts and
removed those he believed
were involved in the wrongdo-
ing. While some may be won-
dering what is going on at the
County with one scandal after
the next and would like to
point the finger at the County
Manager for allowing these
things to happen on his
watch, I would argue that he
is not allowing corruption,
inefficiency and fraud to take
place on his watch and is
forcefully cleaning house. His
actions may step on some,
toes, but he is not covering
up the wrongdoing. He is
demoting and firing those


involved. His actions take
guts and integrity.

Salaries For Commissioners
The present commission
needs some major reforms.
Commissioners should not be
employed by companies that
do business with the County -
it is a clear conflict of Interest.
However, it is impossible for a
person of working years (20 to
65) to be a commissioner on
the salary of $6,000 per year
and hold a full-time job. Let's
be real, being a commissioner
is a full-time job. You have
meetings during the day and
have to attend community
events in the evening and on
weekends. It is a 70-80 hour
per week job. How does one
work 70-80 hours per week
and hold a full-time, paying
job that requires at least 40
hours per week. It is physical-
ly impossible. There simply
are not enough hours in the
day.
The result is commission-
ers get jobs with entities that
allow them to be a full-time
commissioner and not be
required to work a full-time
job. One of the reasons for
giving a commissioner such
leeway is the obvious benefit
of getting contracts and
funding from the County. A
commissioner working for
the company, even if he/she
recuses him or herself from
the vote is going to work very
hard to make sure that funds
.go to the company that
employs him or her. This-cre-
ates the obvious conflict.
One way to end this conflict
is to give commissioners
salaries that will allow them
to earn a living while serving
their constituents full-time.
It is time to follow the exam-
ple of Broward and Palm
Beach County and pay our
commissioners a full-time
salary. After they get a full-
time salary, commissioners
should be prohibited from
working for any company
that receives funding directly
or indirectly from the
County.

We seem to be hearing conflicting stories from fired
district inspector general Herbert Cousins and Miami-
Dade Superintendent Rudy Crew on the offer to wear a
wire story.
Crew said he never offered to wear a wire as part of a
federal investigation, but that the FBI had asked him to.
Stay tuned.

A lot of people feel the local officials are getting a bit
paranoid about storms, since Hurricane Wilma put a
hurting on us last year. Better safe than sorry, but
maybe we need to do a better job of forecasting move-
ment.

Reports are saying the suspects in the alleged plot to blow
up U.S. passenger jets over the Atlantic "were not prepared
to strike immediately." That runs counter to what officials
said at the time of the Aug. 10 arrests, when they warned
the attacks might have been days away. Do you think Tony
Blair put this caper on to help his friend George scare us
into staying in Iraq? Stay tuned.

Many say that political watchers and campaigners are
upset with lobbyist Robefit Levy for advising his judicial
candidates to avoid spending money in Black media and
then created a so called 'African American slate' that exclud-
ed Black judge Karen Mills Francis?

People are shaking their heads and talking about last week's
Miami Times report of how Klu Klux Klan members showed
more knowledge of Black History than some Blacks. KKK
members showed up for an event in Harper's Ferry, W. Va.
marking the 100th anniversary of the first American meeting
of the Niagara Movement, which lead to the founding of the
NAACP and other civil right activities. Of course they wanted
to disrupt the event, but at least they showed up for a Black
History event.
*******
People are talking about
why one candidate in a com-
mission race has not paid
child support for almost two
years while loaning money to
his campaign to seek a $6,000
yearly office.

A lot of people are voicing
amazement about the presi-
dent of the Democratic Black
Caucus' defense of guberato-
rial candidate Jim Davis' vote
against compensating Pitts
and Lee who had been wrong-
ly sentenced to death because
of North Florida racism.

Employees are complaining
that Opa-locka "consultant"
0 Carla Barksdale, who has
received $150,000 in fees
since July of last year, is the
real city manager "without
portfolio." Commissioners
seem not to know of her sta-
tus, even as her bills keep
piling up.

Edmonson and McElroy vie for District 3 seat


RACE
continued from 1A
Incumbent Audrey
Edmonson, an educator, was
appointed to replace
Commissioner Carey-Shuler
based upon the recommenda-
tion of Carey-Shuler after her
December resignation.
Edmonson served five years
on the El Portal Village
Council before being elected
Mayor by her colleagues and
then by the residents in 2004.
Because she has served only
since Carey-Shuler's resigna-
tion, Edmonson has not been
on the County Commission
long enough to pick up ene-
mies or to take action on
enough strong or controver-


sial issues that one can hon-
estly conclude that she has
been a good or bad
Commissioner.
The issues that have upset
most about county govern-
ment, the housing scandal,
lack of affordable housing,
taxes and unresponsive serv-
ices, can impact Edmonson's
candidacy, although to do so
would be disingenuous. Still,
except for the fundraising
advantage and endorsement
that are shared by most
incumbents, no great vision
for the future of District 3 has
been expressed.
Bess McElroy began to look
better as a challenger once
Howard Gary's surprising last
minute candidacy was filed.


Although Gary's past over-
shadowed her, his recent
involuntary withdrawal
resulted in more attention to
"the other candidate." She
was already known by those
who have worked with her in
activist organizations such as
the NAACP, where she served
as second vice president and
People United To Lead the
Struggle for Equality (PULSE),
where she served as President.
McElroy has stated that her
retired status will allow her to
be a full-time Commissioner.
She also argues that her
activism on behalf of those
who have been underserved
by the government shows she
is most able to solve the prob-
lems of the lack of affordable


Who will be the victor in District 2?

because of the housing agency

while the challengers attempt

commission actions from his
position as CEO of the JESCA
social services organization.
The non-Black media has
focused on how challenger
Phillip Brutus would evidence
political clout for the Haitian
community. Brutus hopes to
take advantage of his Haitian
heritage, but has said he is
"running as an American, not
as a member of any one
group," Little has been ana-
lyzed about his six years as a
state representative, which
shows little in the ability to
obtain results in a political
body.
Representative Brutus
appears to campaign primari-
ly on not being Rolle, but
presents little about what he
did in the legislature, where
he was rated among the bot-


torr tier of effective House
Representatives. The "Haitian
vote Haitian" message in
some Haitian radio messages
does not help Brutus to
expand his perspective of
public service.
Anthony Dawkins' surprise
entry into the campaign was
alleged to have been a plot by
Brutus to divide the non-
Haitian Black vote so Brutus
could win without a runoff.
Both Brutus and Dawkins
vehemently deny this.
Dawkins, who had earlier
made revitalization of 18th
Avenue the effort of his non-
profit group, apparently
abandoned that present effort
in order to seek an office
where he could do more for a
broader district. His rationale
for being elected appears to
be that Rolle is responsible
for the dismal Hope IV resi-
dents' removal project. Unlike
the other two candidates,
Dawkins has not served in
any elected or appointed gov-
ernment position.


housing and other needs.
Howard Gary is on the ballot
even though a vote for him will
not count. Gary's claim that
he was a voter in Miami-Dade
county and not Broward was
found to be untrue by the
Miami-Dade's Inspector
General, who was seeking a
judge's order removing him
from the ballot when Gary
resigned, as surprisingly as
his candidacy. Gary had
claimed he resided in his one-
bedroom condo in Miami and
not in his multi-bedroom
house in Hollywood.

The truth behind Davis' Pitts-Lee vote M I "Copyrighted Material


By Rashad Shaheed
Special to the Times

Gubernatorial candidate Jim
Davis continues to say that he did
not "hear enough evidence" to
compensate two Black men,
Freddie Pitts and Wilbur Lee, for
over 12 years of imprisonment,
including nine and one-half on
death role for a crime they did not
commit.
He initially stated his reasons in
last week's televised candidate
debate and he reiterated his
rationale before a group of Black
supporters this past Sunday. He
has not received, nor has he
asked, any forgiveness from the
two men who lost the prime of
their lives and their family during
their incarceration.
Former legislator and Davis fel-
low committee member, James
Burke, who sponsored the com-
pensation bill that was defeated
by Davis' vote, told The Miami
Times that the evidence presented
included the confession of the
"Boo Adams," a white man who
actually committed the Port St.
Joe murders and then committed
a similar murder in Fort
Lauderdale. His confession was
not allowed by a white north
Florida judge and county sheriff
who told Ft. Lauderdale authori-
Lies that "We already got two nig-


gers for that." Pitts-Lee compensa-
tion attorney, Ron Lieberman of
Miami, said, "The evidence pre-
sented before Davis' 1990 com-
mittee was the same evidence


norioa uemocratic gunerna-
torial hopefuls State Sen. Rod
Smith, left, and U.S. Rep. Jim
Davis pose for a photo before
the start of their first televised
debate, Aug. 23. -AP Photo

Governor Askew and the Cabinet
had when they pardoned Freddie
and Wilbert. It was the same evi-
dence that resulted in a bill's suc-
cessful vote out of committee in
past years. We used the very same
evidence before another claims
committee and the full legislature
when they voted Pitts and Lee a
million dollars compensation."
The amount of the compensa-
tion was an indication of the bla-
tant racist circumstances that
resulted from the arrest and death


sentence, which occurred on
August 28, 1963, as Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr, was giving his "I
Have a Dream" speech at the
March on Washington.
Pitts was a 27-year-old soldier
and Lee, who had only met Pitts
socially, was a married laborer.
Pitts lost his career and youth,
while Lee, several years older, lost
his wife, family and job. Lee
signed a confession after being
beaten and having his wife's life
threatened. No physical evidence
linked either to the crime.
Lee is concerned that even now
'Davis is acting like George Bush
by not admitting a mistake. Burke
remembered that the reason
Davis and a fellow legislator, Peter
Wallace, voted no was to prevent a
controversial vote by another
young white legislator, Bob
Trammel, who represented the
North Florida area and who did
not want to aggravate the white or
Black voters in the district.
. The legislator told The Times,
"This was a lynching that would
have been successful, if not for
South Florida lawyers Maurice
Rosen, Phil Hubbart and Irwin
Block. It may be easy for Jim
Davis and his supporters to
respond politically, but too many
Black people were lynched
because of such bad decisions."

State Attorney Rundle keeps promise


SCANDAL
continued from 1A

more charges are likely. They
are also tracking deals struck
by other affordable-housing
developers, several with ties to
Rivero.
Rivero surrendered to law
enforcement agents late
Saturday at the Miami-Dade
Public Corruption
Investigations Bureau, where
he arrived in a black Mercedes
C240 and was immediately
searched and cuffed. He was
then taken to the Turner
Guilford Knight Correctional
Center, where he is being held
on $1 million bail, with the
special condition that he prove
the money used to post bail
was not obtained fraudulently.
Rivero has so far returned


$1.5 million of the public's
money, including the money
that was supposed to go to the
Little Havana affordable hous-
ing project. Prosecutors, how-
ever, say the return of public
money does not absolve fraud-
ulent acts.
The case against Rivero will
be prosecuted by Richard
Scruggs, special assistant to
the state attorney for public
corruption.
Rivero's companies received
almost $1.7 million from the
Housing Agency for projects
now scrapped. Though he held
on to the cash for years, the
county only recently filed suit
to recoup the money.

$530, 000 FROM CITY
Rivero's projects also
received $530,000 from the


city of Miami and, $750,000
for the county-funded, non-
profit MDHA Development
Corp., run by Rivero's busi-
ness partner and longtime
friend.
In four years, he' has not
built a single house for the
poor.
Instead, Rivero started buy-
ing a series of personal prop-
erties and an office for more
than $4.9 million
That house is about a mile
from an 11,000-square-foot
estate that Rivero and his wife
have been building in the High
Pines neighborhood wedged
between Coral Gables and
South Miami. The house
comes with an elevator, bil-
liard room, wine cellar, four-
car garage, pool, spa and
fountain.

acted on by the County
Commission. The coalition
asked that five of the fourteen
resolutions should be
endorsed expeditiously since
residents need immediate
action. These points are as fol-
lows:
1. Fill all public housing
vacancies.
2. Create local voucher for
housing assistance.
3. Rebuild 850 homes that
were lost in the Scott Carver
community.
4. Build new affordable
housing units that were lost
due to hurricanes and condo
conversions, starting with the
area of Crosswinds that has
been vacant for several years.
5. Independent overseers
support to insure accountabil-
ity for construction.
Since the Archbishop's
endorsement, organizations
such as STAND, the NAACP,
the Laborers Union and the
Firefighters Association have
joined the coalition.
The Catholic Church still
remains very involved and
vocal as they are trying to
bring in other clergy to support
the efforts of the coalition. "I

family that includes hundreds
of children, grandchildren and
great-grandchildren. But he's
likely finished with women.
"I don't need a wife right
now," he said. "I don't have my
eyesight to see her."
Vilsaint attributes his
longevity to one thing: his faith
in God.
"You have to learn respect for
the Lord," he said. "Otherwise,
you won't live very long."

the housing disaster, yet the
community still remains out-
raged and overwhelmed," said
Sheth.
According to the Miami
Worker's Center, the Miami-
Dade County Commission is in
the process of approving their
budget, including funds allo-
.cations to affordable housing
for the upcoming .year. "They
have approximately $6 billion


to play with; Bottom line, there
is plenty of money and it's time
for them to give back funds
that were stolen to support
housing programs," said
Sheth.
On September 7, the MDCC
will conduct its first budget
hearing. The coalition will host
a march at 4 p.m. in front of
the Clark building to voice
their opinions before it is
approved.

This week, I am finishing up
the topic of Judas in our lives. If
you read the previous two weeks
columns, you know that I
shared last week about a prob-
lem that I was having with two
young women. This week, I

mind as someone to pray for.
Though their behavior was
somewhat irritating to me, it
was not to such a degree that I
would have been too attentive to
it. But because my friends, the
Judases, regularly and continu-
ously brought tales to me about
them and vice versa, they
became someone whom I paid
attention to.
The attention made me seek
my Father and eventually
caused me to pray for these two
women fervently and continu-
ously. Though there seemed to
be no change during our meet-
ing, seeds were planted in the
spirit that bloomed and grew
and produced more fruit.
As time went on, the Holy
Spirit captured their hearts and
melted them. Gone were those

because I realized that I went to
the Lord about them because I
was offended by what they were
saying about me. When the
Lord spoke to me and I looked at
my motives, I had to acknowl-
edge that as a Christian, I
should not be so concerned
about my feelings as much as I
should be concerned about
someone's salvation. So my
friends the Judases helped me
to put my responsibilities as a
minister and disciple of Christ
in perspective.
As I have said the past two
weeks, surely all blood bought
children of God have had, or still
have, at least one Judas in their

have made you better, not bitter.
If you are bitter and still har-
boring a grudge, then you have
not allowed the Lord to work
things out for you. Let it go and
let God. If you have recognized
that Judas has helped to fulfill
God's plans and purpose for
you, then say "Praise God and
thank you Judas!" You might
even want to send Judas a
thank you card or a little note of
appreciation.
And remember, there is
absolutely nothing that hap-
pens in any of our lives that God
is not aware of or does not allow
to happen. Instead of becoming
angry or depressed with yourself
and your Judas, ask God what
He is trying to reveal to you
about you or about Him. Get
better, don't be bitter!

How can we make your ride better?


Scustom e Addiiomnally, as we make adjust-
Scustomers ments to mutes with the lowest
ridership, we balance these
adjustments by enhancing the
service of our highly used moutes.
I also had a chance to talk to
Gtuadvs Alonzo, who has been
riding the rail and bus systems
fbr eight years. Ms. Alonzo told
ime she uses the rail and the
Meroimover on her way to work
every day. She said Metmrail
needy to improve its service fre-
quenc and the train catr seats
need to be cleaner
I explained to Ms. Alonzo that
Metrorail service has improved
its frequency from 15 minutes to
10 minutes during weekday mid-
day hour, anul that service dur-
ing peak hours is every six min-
utes. I also told her that the seats
will be replaced with easy-to-
r Roosevelt Bradley on maintain vinyl cushions.

So fat; I am encouraged by ing to you, our riders, not only to

...- /q MIAMI,


Miami-Dade Transit Directo
Metrorail with frequent rider
inner loop to accommodate addi-
tional riders. The additional cars
began circulating Friday, August
25. In addition, I have asked that
all Metromover car doors be
checked more frequently to make
sure that they fiction properly.
While riding Metroinovei; Mt:
Kaskev introduced me to another
frequent transit rider, Ms.
Roberia Neway. She told me she
uses Metrmmover to go to work at
the Miami Dade College Wolfson
Campus, that our services have
always been efficient, and that
she has never been late to work
using transit.


Gas prices are on the rise, and
so is the demand for public trans-
portation. To hear what cus-
tomers are saying firsthand and
. to identify what service improve-
ments are needed, Miami-Dade
Transit Director Roosevelt
Bradley and his senior staff are
riding buses and trains.
On Monday, August 21,
Bradley rode on Metrorail with
frequent transit rider Sid Kaskey
at Kaskey's request. During their
commute from the South Miami
Metrorail station to downtown
Miami, Bradley and Kaskey
spoke about overcrowding in
Metromover cars and the mal-
functioning of the car doors,
among other things.
I explained to Mri Kaskey that
all of our 12 original
Metromnover cars have met their
20-year life expectancy. In addi-
tion, mover ridership has
increased by more than 86 per-
cent since the People's
Transportation Plan was
approved by voters in 2002. WTo
satisfy this increasing demand,
Meinmovier cars are spending
longer periods of time in service,
thus increasing wear and tear.
PresentlV; we are in the process
of purchasing new cars while
stepping up efforts to maintain
the existing fleet in good condi-
tion. I have also ordered our staff
to have two-car trains ci(rulat-
ing during rush hours on the


Transit Director rides witl

KEITH FERGUSON


08/03/62 09/05/05

Just a few words in respect for
my friend; who gave me uplif-
tance and encouragement even
to the end.
He showed me life is hard and
taught me how to stand tall;
He told me it's better to stum-
ble and get up than to get
knocked down and fall.
He led me on paths that gave
me knowledge and wisdom; plus
showed me that I could still live
right, no matter what I've done.
He focused on me understand-
ing that life is hard as a rock;
and though you may possess
many keys, there's still an un-
breakable lock. i
He taught me that sometimes
love hurts and friends alon't
agree;
He showed me that when you
love, you do so unconditionally .

No matter where you are, how
you feel, or where you're at;
When you've loved, there is
love... my friend taught me that.
So wherever you are, my
friend, as one year has turned to
another;
Just know your lessons are not
lost in your death, lovingly your
little brother
Sincerely your family.

Hi everyone, well what's going on? I
hope your heart stays strong. Please
don't lose focus because Tookie is gone.
We must continue to watch the others
grow we cannot let death hit us with a
terrible blow.
You all know Tookie which is my son.
As we sit here crying for Tookie we all
know he went out having fun.
As I know my life will
never be the same, I
will give all the money
back just to know my
son left with no pain.
As my son was riding
through the streets,
Tookie knew his go cart
could not be beat. So
why don't we just pic-
ture Tookie for a while,
as Tookie left for heav-
en he looked back with
a big smile.
Even though Tookie
left without saying
goodbye, God wants us
to know he is with the
Most High.
As I write this poemaac
the pain that pierces Isaac H
my heart comes too (Toc
near. I hope you all can
understand a father's 9/4/90-
tear.
A tear which I can't explain, I just
pray to God he left without pain.
The best memory of all is when I was
watching Tookie play football
And when we see Tookie get that fum-
bled ball we'd say "run Tookie run," as
we'd watch him make a touchdown we
said, "boy our son is having fun."
So Michelle, please don't cry, because
you know Tookie is watching us from
the sky. I know this will be real, real
painful for a while, but we have to
remember our son with a smile. Yes I
know I'm hurting and in this place
alone, but you can bet my son's death

will surely keep me strong.
Out of all this I try to take it with all
my might. You can best believe my son's
death will make me do right. Well, as I
miss my son on that football field, I
hope the police find the one by whom
my son was killed.
Now when I think about my son and
my watery eyes get filled, I have to take
a high blood pressure
pill. Even though I will
never be the same
knowing my son will
never play another foot-
ball game. I know when
my son took his last
ride, for some reason I
know God was by His
side.
Now I don't want my
son's death to be in
vain, that's why it's an
honor to give up the
game.
As I leave this place
and go to church to get
saved, I will always visit
my son and parents'
cks, III grave.
My son, my son as
kic) you sit in heaven with
your grandparents
2/16/05 keeping you warm, tell
them to read your
father's first poem. When I learned of
your death it went straight to my nerve,
now I know there is no more Isaac the
third. But as I am close to ending this
poem I want us to stop for a while and
think of Tookie with a smile. As I go
through this storm, it's a damn shame
it took my son's death to write my first
poem. I will end this by saying "sleep
well my son," because 'I know where
you're at you are definitely having fun.


Daddy will always love you!

The third annual Trick Luvs Da Kids Back to School Family Fun Fest took place at Virrick Park in
Coconut Grove from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.


MIAMI'S OWN TRICK DADDY GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY


On Saturday, July 29, platinum rapper
Trick Daddy held the third annual Trick
Luvs Da Kids Back to School Family Fun
Fest. The event took place at Virrick Park
in Coconut Grove from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
There were free activities, food and music.
Trick Luvs Da Kids Foundation, Trick
Daddy's not-for-profit organization,
teamed up with the Florida Marlins,
Williamsons Cadillac and 103.5 The Beat
for a fun filled day for students before the
2006-07 school year begins. More than
700 students participated, each of them
taking home a backpack filled with school
supplies.
Every year the foundation organizes a
back to school supplies giveaway as a
means to encourage students for the new
school year. "I want to encourage these
children to do their best in school," said
Trick Daddy.
The students involved in this fest were
prescreened underprivileged children in
the Homestead migrant homeless shelter
and The Boys and Girls Club of Coconut
Grove. "It is important for me to help the
children in my community," said Trick
Daddy.
Trick Daddy's friend and fellow rapper
Pitbull also made a guest appearance.
"I'm privileged to be a part of this event. It
takes a little to make a world of differ-
ence," Pitbull said. "With a little help,
these children have a promising future
ahead of them."
Through his foundation, Trick Daddy
has not only helped children in Miami,
but he has also helped children who were
misplaced by Hurricane Katrina. "I enjoy
giving back to the children. These kids
will one day be our leaders," said the rap-

Insecurity


shows


weakness

By Brandyss Howard
bhoward(i)miamitimesonline.com
It's human nature to doubt
yourself at one point or anoth-
er. The only certain things in
life are death and time. We
often find ourselves question-
ing decisions in our past, espe-
cially the ones that have left
emotional damage. Those of us
who still have open wounds
tend to be more cautious about
future decisions and are reluc-
tant to putfaith into anything
or anyone, even ourselves.
Sometimes our minds play
tricks on us and we feel that
expecting the worst prevents us
from being disappointed. We
have to allow ourselves to let
loose and roll with the punch-
es. Life is a mystery and the
only person that can give you
complete assurance is God.
Spending time worrying and
stressing over something
another person may be saying
or doing only takes away from
your personal strength.
There is nothing wrong with
trusting your instincts. Most of
the time, your gut feeling
turns out to be the correct
one. However, if you consis-
tently carry emotions of uncer-
tainty, you separate yourself
from progress, spiritual growth
and the ability to love.
Several relationships have
been broken due to insecurity
issues. Men do not want to be
with a woman who is constant-
ly questioning their actions
and motives. If a woman sus-
pects her mate of cheating and
shows that she's insecure
without proof, she runs the
risk of losing him.
Most men get turned off by a
woman who lacks confidence.
Shifting your internal insecuri-
ties to external ones in your
relationship places your mate
under a microscope and even-
tually poisons the trust factor.
When you make the decision
to trust someone, you have to
stick with it. But first, you
have to trust yourself.
Insecurity shows weakness.
Never let anyone else make
you feel insecure. Individuals
who try to make you feel bad
about yourself usually do so
because they feel bad about
themselves. Developing self-
reliance gives you the strength
to disregard negative energy
from others.
'Misery loves company, so the
minute you feel someone trying
to lower your self-esteem, tune
them out. Hold your head high
and remember that they are
paying you attention because
an insecure person feels
threatened by one who mani-
fests self-confidence.

a great actor.
Even though Payton rose as a
headliner in California, she
never forgot her roots. She made
many trips back home and built
a palatial home for her mother,
who never wanted to leave her
roots. Pryor was elevated from
drama teacher to director of
many plays presented at Miami-
Dade Community College.
Payton returned to Miami
recently to facilitate an Urban
Theater and Entertainment
Awards ceremony at FMU's Lou
Rawls Performing Arts Center in
Miami Gardens. While there,
she presided over the workshop
founded by Julia Brown and Ed
Haynes, founder/CEO of
Community Builders and JEBA.
Payton took the time to pres-
ent the Unsung Hero Award to I
Pryor, her former drama I
teacher. The act is from an old
adage: "What goes around
comes around." He helped her
prepare for her career and she
reciprocated by recognizing him
with top honor. Others receiving
awards included Sandrell
Rivers, Grown Folks Night Out,
Gerald McBride, Ricky,
DeRae's Gospel World and
Larry Leon Hamlin, the
Drummer Award.
Presently, Payton is back on
the set working on new material
and Pryor is strategizing with
Pat and Shirley on another out-
standing play to be presented at
the M Ensemble.

Kudos go out Dr. John
Johnson II, principal,
Cooperative Charter School and
former Deputy Superintendent of
Dade County Schools, staff and
students for a successful first
week of school. There was perfect
attendance and all of the stu-
dents came attired in their school
uniform with backpacks and par-
ents tugging at their arms. The
first to arrive was Anthony
Boatwright, Jr. followed by
Selena Buttress. Both of them
were directed to the cafeteria for a


hot breakfast prepared by
Ferguson Catering.
The whole concept was a vision
of Dr. Richard J. Strachan to
give back his years of experience
as a scholar, musician, choreog-
rapher, author, motivational
speaker, an active leader and
more. He vows that those boys
and girls minds will be developed
to conquer any challenge facing
them.
So, visit the Zeta Community
Center, 1743 N.W. 54th Street,
and observe those students arriv-
ing for the Charter School, in ses-
sion from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and
the tutorial program from 3 p.m.
to 6 p.m. Parents, you must
enroll your child in this full-day
program for "FREE" where they'll
receive a breakfast, lunch and
two snacks before they are picked
up.
For more information please
call 305-693-2541 and ask for
Dr. Johnson or 'call Dr.
Strachan at 305-691-3209.

Side effects of the Morning After Pill


The morning-after pill is used like


candy in college
By Jasmine Williams
Miami Times Intern

With the start of a new semes-
ter and college students return-
ing to their classrooms it no
surprise that parties are follow-
ing right behind them. College
students are interacting in
these social gathering with each
new day. They are becoming
exposed to a world of alcohol,
drugs and sex. However most
become so infatuated with the
parties, they become immune to
the risks that are associated
with drinking, smoking and
having sexual Intercourse.
This is especially true for teen
-girls who find themselves get-
ting into bed with a complete
stranger and waking up the
next day with the realization of
what happened the night
before. They are confused on
what to do to rectify their mis-
take. This in turn sometimes
leads them to the Morning After
Pill. Yet they may not really
know the risks of taking such a
pill?
Emergency contraception
(EC), [also known as Emergency
Birth Control (EBC), the morn-
ing-after pill or postcoital con-
traception] refers to measures,
that if taken after sex, may pre-
vent a pregnancy. They are an
oral drug containing high doses
of the same hormones found in
regular oral contraceptive pills,


dorm rooms
which, when taken after unpro-
tected sexual Intercourse, may
prevent pregnancy from occur-
ring.
The "morning-after pill" is
licensed for use up to 72 hours
after sexual intercourse. Unlike
chemical abortion, emergency
contraception does not end
pregnancies and will not harm
a developing embryo.
Misconceptions of the EC are
that it cannot be recommended
as the main means of birth con-
trol because it is not as effective
as any ongoing method of con-
traception. It also does not pro-
tect against sexually-transmit-
ted infections.
However, it is used by some
as a back-up when other means
of contraception have failed. For
example, if a woman has forgot-
ten to take a birth control pill or
when a condom is torn during
sex, the morning-after pill may
be taken. It is also a first line of
treatment for victims of sexual
assault.
The most common side effect
of emergency contraception
pills are nausea, abdominal
pain, fatigue, headache, dizzi-
ness, vomiting and breast ten-
derness. These side effects are
normally resolved within 24
hours. The rate of these effects
occurring is less for progestin-
only pills when compared to
combined pills.
Also common is temporary

disruption of the menstrual
cycle, which may manifest as
early or late periods, spotting or
breakthrough-bleeding and
(less commonly) missed peri-
ods. The primary mechanism of
EC is delaying ovulation.
Menstruation occurs on average
14 days after ovulation, so a
delayed ovulation will result in
a delayed menstruation.
Suppression of ovulation may
cause anovulatory bleeding,
'which could manifest as an
early period.


On August 24, the Food and
Drug Administration approved
the morning-after pill for use
without a prescription in the
United States, but only for
women over 18 with proof of ID.,
Girls aged 17 and under must
have a doctor's note in order to
receive the morning-after pill.
Just as it is with birth control,
the decision to take EC is a per-
sonal one. Just be sure to get
all of the facts and consult with
a doctor before seeking a pre-
scription for these pills.


What happens when dad's not around


By Brandi Gibson
Part Iof R

Growing up without a Daddy
means I attended my friends'
"Sweet 16" parties, but there
won't be one for me Mom can't
afford it. Growing without a Dad
means I could only imagine the
sweet embarrassed look on his
(my dad's) face at the mall
check out counter as he fum-
bles for a credit card to purchase
new bras and panties for me for
back to school. It means I was
jealous of those girls who came to
"Drivers Ed," who already knew
how to drive. "Daddy taught me,"
they'd say.
Growing up without a Dad
means there's no one to embar-
rass me by scaring the hell out of
my prom date. There's no one to
put my prom date through a
third degree interrogation. "Boy -
who are your folks? What are
your grades like? Do you intend
to go to college? How much
money you got on you? And final-
ly to administer the coup de
grace of all embarrassment:
"Have my baby back here direct-
ly after the prom no after par-
ties no hotel rooms no parking
in secluded areas you hear mel
Don't let me have to come looking
for you young man," my Dad
would have said if he were here.
And, just before you get out of
the door My Daddy would have
pulled that new "gadgety camera
thing" from under the seat cush-
ion and posed us for a dozen
snaps. Then he would snap pic-
tures of us every step of the way
- out the door, down the side-
walk, to the curb until we got in
the car and departed. That's
what my Daddy would have done
- if he were there.
My Mentor told me about an
incident with his niece. Let's just
call her Brenda for the sake of
privacy. He and his wife had just


come back to Village West from a
career in the military. His niece
was living in their home with his
mother. His mom was older and
not really equipped anymore to
keep up with a teenager. His
niece's mother was around, but
really not that engaged in her life
- she worked long hours to help
provide for Brenda.
Her father, let's call him Ben,
my mentor's brother, was incar-
cerated. When Ben learned that
his brother was coming home to
stay he asked him to intercede
in Brenda's life. My Mentor
quickly instituted rules and set
new boundaries of behavior for
his niece. She didn't like the
rules and boundaries she had


been pretty much running
unchecked before my mentor's
arrival. But after some months,
she settled into the fact that she
had to now live up to new expec-
tations. Her grades improved.
Her conduct improved. And she
settled into a routine of helping
with household chores.
As .reward for being the new
and improved Brenda, my men-
tor granted her the privilege of
limited, daylight dating. It was
learned early on that part of
Brenda's previous conduct prob-
lems in school stemmed from
her puppy-love crush on Tim.
She pulled his hair, threw spit-
balls at, him and passed bad
notes to him throughout the


entire class period. Needless to
say this,,did not make her very
popular with the teachers whose
class"esithiy shared that she
inter i p.- ...
The minute she was granted
limited dating privileges, like
Sadie Hawkins, she invited Tim
to the movies. He said OK and
set the date for the following
Saturday at 11 a.m. Brenda
went about the rest of the week
dutifully doing her homework,
chores around the house and
endearing herself to all of her
teachers.
Saturday arrived. Brenda was
dressed, sitting and waiting on
the front porch by 10 a.m. 11,
12, 1 p.m. passed. My mentor
looks up from a UM game to see
his niece still sitting, still wait-
ing. "Wasn't he supposed to be
here at eleven?" he asked. "Don't
worry about it Uncle. It's OK,"
she responded. To this my men-
tor said, "It's not OK. Come on
get in the truck. Where does this
guy live?"
They drove to "Golden Gates."
Fate just happened to put Tim in
the path of my mentor. There he
was as bold as day walking
with a friend. "Hey young man!
Didn't you make a date with my
niece? If you don't want to go out
with my niece, that's your right,
but if you make a date with her,
you will have the common cour-
tesy to..."
He scared the young man to
death. Tim learned from a man
how to be a man and his niece
learned to expect/demand
respect from her relationships.
Just as a side note, that incident
took place when they were in
junior high. They dated all
through high school and mar-
ried just before completing their
Associate Degrees together.
What my mentor did for his
niece is what I'd want my Dad to
do for me if he were here.

Are you sinking deeper into an ocean full of turmoil? Are you
swimming toward an unknown location? Are you fishing for
answers with unknown solutions? Are you floating towards obliv-
ion? Well I'm here to keep you afloat. With my honest and trust-
worthy advice you'll be able to get a grasp on any troubling situa-
tion sailing towards you. So e-mail me atjazz4advice@yahoo.com
with any unanswered questions, pressing concerns and important
information you wish to share with me.


Dear Jazz,
Ever since I was a little girl I noticed
my breasts were a lot bigger than other
girls. While other girls were getting their
training bras, I would be wearing a C cup.
It always made me self-conscious espe-
cially when the boys would tease and call
me names. So when I turned seventeen I
decided I wanted a breast reduction. I
had researched it thoroughly and knew
that if I wanted a normal life I had to get
this procedure. However my mother told
me that she wouldn't sign off for it. So I
forged her signature and went to this
real cheap place one of my friends told
me about. After the surgery I didn't feel
anything and the surgeon said it was
because I was still on the anesthetics.
Well a couple of days later my breast
began to hurt immensely. So I decided to
go see the surgeon again, but when I did
the building was boarded up and said out
of business. I was scared so I ran home
and snatched off the bandages he told
me to keep wrapped around my breasts.
When I looked in the mirror I was
shocked to see that they were totally
messed up. One was bigger than the
other, they were bruised and had cuts all
over them and they looked uneven. I
started- screaming and crying because
they looked horrible. When I told my
mother, she was disappointed in me and
took me to see a real surgeon. Even
though he was able to fix them a little, I
didn't feel comfortable in my body any-
more. I regretted the decision I made
and wished that I had accepted the body
I was born with. So why is it that we girls
can't love ourselves? Why do we need to
change anything on our bodies to fit in?

Dear Reader,
When we are little everything about us


is perfect according to our parents.
However, as we age we begin to notice
the differences between ourselves and
the other children around us. We take
notice to the popular and cool ones and
wonder why we can't be like them. As we
enter adulthood, we are shown a world
where the beautiful people get every-
thing they want. So we figure if we
change something about ourselves then
we can be just like them. However, if we
do change what's on the outside we will
still be the same in the inside. We will
still have the mentality that we still
aren't perfect enough. But that's where
we are wrong; what makes you special
is the person inside. If you were to let
that person out more, people would see
that you're one of a kind. So maybe the
beautiful girl gets noticed first but she
may not always hold their attention.
That's where you step in and show them
that you have just as much to offer as
she does. Looks will fade, but the person
you are inside will always remain. We
have to realize that everyone is given a
special talent or gift that makes them
unique and there are people out there
who will accept it and cherish it. What
we have to do is stop holding back,
because we are afraid to stand out. We
have to stop reading those beauty mag-
azines that say what is beautiful and
what is not. What may be ugly to them is
pretty to someone else. If we are ever
going to be able to change people in this
superficial world, we have to show them
that their opinion of us is not important.
It is okay to stand out in a crowd and be
yourself because being a leader is
always better than following someone
else. Let's stop hiding behind the 'beau-
tiful people' and show the world there is
more to life than looks.


Five tips to pay for college without loans

1. CHECK WITH EMPLOYERS
Your parents' employer may also offer financial assistance. Be
sure to check with human resources or the personnel depart-
ment to see if such programs exist at either your company or that
of your parents.

2. CIVIC ORGANIZATIONS
If you have a parent that belongs to a fraternity or sorority
there is a good chance you may be eligible to apply for a schol-
arship offered by that organization. Churches, faith based and
civic organizations also offer educational assistance in the form
of grants and scholarships.

3. SCHOLARSHIP BOOKS/WEBSITES
Each year billions of dollars go unclaimed in scholarships and
grants. Don't be afraid to apply for several scholarships. You may
get the award because no one else applied. Don't overlook any
scholarship because several small awards can add up and assist
in paying for your post-secondary education, which is soaring
each year. Websites that allow users to search for scholarships
include: www.collegeboard.com, www.fastweb.com and
www.finaid.com. Each year Kaplan and Peterson's publish books
with a list of scholarships. You can check your local library or
bookstores for availability.

4. MILITARY
If you have a parent who is disabled as a result of military serv-
ice, you may be eligible to receive educational assistance from the
Veterans Administration. Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)
programs for the armed forces offer generous scholarships that
can pay for room and board, tuition, books and provide a month-
ly stipend in return for a service commitment.

5. FINANCIAL AID OFFICE
Check the financial aid office of the school you are applying to
or attending for information on free money sources for college. In
some cases donors make gifts to colleges and universities to pro-
vide scholarships for students attending a particular school.
Some of these scholarships may only be advertised through
financial aid offices, so check to make sure you aren't missing
out on financial aid you are eligible for.


__ was born and raised in Queens, New York. His mother was an actress
involved with the theater, so at a very young age he became a touring world trav-
eler. He then picked up acting for himself and at the age of thirteen was starring
in Cymbeline (Shakespeare in the Park). He soon found himself an agent and his
first role in a film. By the age of 15 he had starred in many independent films and
guest-starred on television shows like Third Watch and Law and Order. At the age
of 18 he starred in his breakthrough role in the movie Holes (2003) as the charac-
ter "Squid." He loves acting and writing and calls it "the only thing he wants to or
sees himself doing." He is currently filming Spinning into Butter, which will be
released later this year.

Who does your business
best serve and why?
It best serves anyone that
would like to visually pres-
ent a project.

What were some of your
past experiences that
helped you meet the need


and


Future goals
My long term future goal
with this business is to win
an Oscar for directing and
writing a film. My short
term goal is to increase
sales so that I can have a
bigger budget for my future
projects.

Why did you start this
business and how has it
grown?
First of all, I always had a
love for what I do. I started
this business because
there weren't too many
people in the business of
production. The business
has grown from our prod-
uct being seen by only us
to our products being seen
all over the United States
and Canada.
What were some of the
obstacles you faced and
how did you overcome
them?
Trying to get the funds for
the equipment as well as
finding the right equipment
to do the projects was an
obstacle. Also, lacking the
knowledge of how to use
the equipment was a big
obstacle. I overcame those

When I first started, I real-
ly didn't know how to do
much. I just had the pas-

are my experiences. Every
time I did a project, I
noticed what I could do
better. Therefore, me learn-
ing how. to be better at
what I do it helps meet my
clients needs.
Where did you get the
name of your business
and does it have any sig-

I got the name of the busi-

was born in and gained all
of my experiences. When
people hear the name
'Miami Films,' they will
know where the project
came from and what ,this
city is all about.

The slave mentality still oppresses our people


SLAVE
continued from 6D
say, but sadly, 90% of
Black folks feel the
same way when
speaking about safety.
Money: It appears
that the slave masters
still control how we
make and spend our
money. From the out-
side it looks like we're
in control, but that's
on the physical plane.
Mentally, deeply hid-
den where nobody can
see, there lies the real
controller . the slave
master of oppression.
The same things that
keep us in material
darkness are the same
things that lead us
away from spiritual
light. A person can
never gain true free-
dom from material
possessions, but I


guess that's easier for
a rich man to compre-
hend then it is for a
poor man. It is very
difficult for a person to
obtain wealth and use
it correctly for the bet-
terment of mankind
without spiritual
understanding and
being enlightened. A
fool will never prosper
for long, in a matter of
time his dues will
catch up to him.
My job is to lead you
toward the light and
out of darkness. In
order to accomplish
that goal, it is manda-
tory that you all begin
:to study. The best
material that mankind
can possibly read and
study can never be
found in a book store.
Why? Because the
best thing that we
could ever study is


Frazier moves up in OBC

FRAZIER
continued from 5D

Development and Special Projects after serving
as the organization's Director of Business
Development. Frazier also served as the OBC's
Ticket Sales Manager for six years and has been
with the organization eight years overall.
Frazier, 30, has been instrumental in the orga-
nization's implementation of the acclaimed
Orange Bowl Youth Football League (OBYFL) as
well as the introduction to several new Orange
Bowl Festival events and marketing campaigns
since his tenure began in 1998. Among the mar-
keting concepts introduced during Frazier's
employment was the bowl-related "Patch" pro-
gram, which invigorated the bowl industry's
ability to market their individual trademark in
new and innovative ways.
Entering his ninth year at the OBC, Frazier,
a North Miami Beach Senior High School and
University of Miami graduate, will oversee the
organization's business development initia-
tives, major revenue generating initiatives and
strategic plans regarding the organizations
short and long-term business development
goals. He will also be the driving force in con-
tinuing the prosperity of the OBYFL as it enters
its eighth season in 2006.
Recently, Frazier managed the OBC's efforts
in business development, merchandise and
licensing, youth sports, pre-game and half-
time shows at the FedEx Orange Bowl. Prior
to his recent role as Director of Business
Development, Frazier served as the organi-
zation's Ticket Sales Manager from
September 2000 through April 2005. His
first interaction at the OBC came in
September 1998 when he served as a
Volunteer Assistant in the marketing
department. His hard work and dedication
did not go unnoticed as he was tapped as
the next Marketing and Promotions
Assistantship in June 1999.
Frazier graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor
of Business Administration from the
University of Miami, with a Major in Finance
and Minor Sports Management. He and his
girlfriend, Catelyn, have a son, Marcellus,
and reside in Aventura.

then that we will be
able to recognize and
get rid of all unwel-

want to know what

Two friends, One dream

Friends dream is close
to coming true

By Terrell Clayton
tclayton@miamitimesonline.comrn
They are two friends on two different teams witlr


one dream. Martin
Wright and Antwan
Easterling have been
close friends since the
first grade. Both play-
ers are at the top of
their separate teams,
but plan on playing for
the same college
together next year.
Martin Wright is a
star defensive end for
Booker T. Washington,
who won the most
improved tight end
award at the University
of Miami camp held by
Head Coach Larry
Coker. Antwan
Easterling, is an excep-
tional running back for
Northwestern. He runs
the 40 yard dash in 4.4
seconds and is a top
prospect as he slices
through defenses in
hopes of being the top
running back in the
state's history.
These two studs can-
not play against each
other for the State's
championship because
of the division class,
but luckily there has
been a classic between
their two schools that
allows them to play
against each other in a
preseason battle. For
the past two years,
Easterling's Bulls were
victorious over
Wright's Tornadoes.

Students wrap up Jordan's summer

internship program


For the second year,
Commissioner Barbara J.
Jordan was able to help 23

opportunity to work and build
partnerships with some of the
district's prominent business
leaders.

storytelling and playing board
games with the patients. They
also learned the significance
of teamwork through activi-
ties at Miami Metro Zoo.

. The exposure to professionals, different
work environments and to various job assign-
ments will place these students ahead of their peer
group when it's ,time to enter the job market .. "
Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan


At the start of the intern-
ships, the students participat-
ed in a two-day orientation
which taught them business
etiquette and the importance
of team work within a corpora-
tion. The ten-week program
reached far beyond the job site
and enabled students to
acquire knowledge on the
importance of giving back to
the community.
They volunteered at the
Florida Club Care Center
where they assisted in the


the job market," said
Commissioner Jordan.
More than a dozen busi-
nesses located within District
One participated in the pro-
gram, in industries ranging
from hospitality to govern-
ment. Those businesses
included: Calder Race
Course; Civil CADD
Engineering; Comcast;
Dolphin Stadium; Dozier &

district, provided Wal-Mart

youngsters' knowledge of the
real world of work. All the
components of the program
will help the student develop
self-confidence and make
wise career and life choices."

Game of the


By Terrell Clayton
tclayton@miamitimesonline.com

The Carol City Chiefs and
Northwestern Bulls was the
most anticipated game of last
week. As all classes ended, the
football teams and fans were
fired up. Cheerleaders,
majorettes and band members
all had their routines down,
while students, parents, alum-
ni and fans of South Florida
high schools bought tickets for
Saturday's game, which took
place at the FlU South campus.
This game was expected to be
a big one as bragging rights
were once again at stake. As
game time approached, the
parking lot quickly filled. It was
high school football in typical
Miami fashion; Girls fashioned


themselves with Bulls and _d
Chiefs body paint and styl-
ish clothing while guys
were in the parking lot jam-
ming to their car radios.
Other spectators stood in
the parking lot while ven-
dors sold shoes and
clothes.
After kick-off
Northwestern made ay
quick statement jump-
ing ahead 21-0 in the s
first quarter. TheJ
Chiefs seemed lost
at the beginning,
but made a brief
comeback: The Bulls quickly
answered as they racked up
points. "We had to answer
because the momentum was
swinging. After they scored
again, I told my team that this
is a whole new ball game. We


MVeek: Bulls versusChiefs


Running
ll back Antwain
Easterling helped hiss
team answer as he carried
his team and Carol City defend-
ers on his back on the way to
the end zone. Easterling wasn't
the only Bull that contributed.
Northwestern's Junior
Quarterback Jacory Harris also


piled up big yards as he picked
apart the Chiefs defense
through three quarters. "I feel
good; I have to do better
though. Right now this is just
one game. We got to beat
Edison next week," Harris said.
He humbled himself
as he gave the entire
team credit. "I can't do
it without my offense,
my offensive line and the whole
team. They have to be behind
me," said Harris. They were
indeed behind their quarter-
back as proven by the final
score: Northwestern 50, Carol
City 13.
The only miscommunication
for the Bulls during the entire
night occurred with replacing
their starters and getting in the
second and third string play-
ers. As the game clock wound-


ed down, Northwestern's crowd
sang their school fight song
while holding up the Bulls
sign.
The game's final score
seemed to be a statement
towards Northwestern's pre-
dicted championship season.
However, Smith downplayed


the idea. "We got to take these
games one at a time. Anything
can happen throughout the
season. We have to stay
healthy," Smith said.
Anything can happen. That's
why the teams play the game.
It just seemed like Carol City
didn't show up to this one.
