Are women's standards too low?


By Brandyss Howard
bhoward@miamitimesonline.com
In a conversation I had with one of my
associates, I was told that when it comes to
men, my standards are set too high. At
first, I took it as a compliment; to me it
meant that I was being viewed as a woman
who refuses to settle. Then my mind began
to wonder if I stood out simply because the
majority of other women merely have their
standards set too low.
Like the old saying goes, if you don't
stand for something, you'll fall for any-
thing. There is nothing wrong with having
strong opinions and expectations for the
direction of your life. The decision not to


associate yourself with certain people or
situations doesn't necessarily mean you're
conceited; it actually gains you respect.
Others will recognize that you simply
draw a fine line between what's cool and
what's unacceptable.
I've been told that males are often intim-
idated by a strong woman. The chick danc-
ing in the club with all her a** out will be
approached more than the fully-clothed
sister having drinks at the bar. Dudes feel
like it's less work they have to put in, plus
it decreases the chance that their advances
will be rejected. They end up gravitating to
the 'get- em-girl' while secretly admiring
the more respectable woman from a far.

Blacks Must Control Their Own Destiny


20 The Miami Taimes, SepLRLUA J.1., ~


Reverend Dr. Joreatha M.
Capers has just finished cele-
bration her first year at
Ebenezer United Methodist
Church, but before that cele-
bration dissolved, it was time
for the celebration of 108 years
of Ebenezer's existence.
Dr. Capers and committee
members kicked-off the cele-
bration Sunday, August 6, with
everyone contributing $108
and wearing white including
the youth who joined the mass
choir for the first Sunday serv-
ice.
Other special days included
Memorial Sunday; T-Shirt
Sunday, with the wearing of
purple and gold; the
Smorgasbord Africana Festival;
and the actual church anniver-
sary with the mass and youth
choirs providing the music.
Kudos go out to committee
members Bertha Martin,
Pernella Burke, Jill Bethel,
Valarie Thomas, David
Smith, T. Ellene Martin-
Major, Samuel "Chase"
Williams, Eloise S. Johnson,
John Thomas, Alvin W.
Roberts, Harold Francis, Jr.
Alvin Bullard, Marva Hill,


Pauline Thompson, Willie M.
Gibson and Betty Bullard.
Ebenezer UMC would not be
standing with much dignity if it
were not for the pioneer fami-
lies of the Smiths, Martins,
Francises, Halls, Hills,
Thompsons, Perrys,
Thomases Bradley, Whyms,
Vereens, Bullards and
Barkletts.
Under the pastorate of Dr.
Capers, the members vow to
become more dedicated in love,
camaraderie, holiness and
finances. With those commit-
ments, a new Ebenezer has
emerged. It begins with a full
choir each first and third
Sunday for 7:30 and 11 a.m.
services, while David Smith
conducts Praise and Worship
under Jill Bethel, worship
minister.
Burke announced The
Concert Chorale of Bethune-
Cookman College is performing
Sunday, September 17, at the
11 a.m. service. This means
alumni should bring a check
for $100, $200 or more to pres-
ent. Some of those include
Gloria Weatherington, Audley
Coakley, John Williams,


Gwen LaVan, Mary Hortan,
Willie Jackson, Dr. Shelia
Long, Alvilda "Tree" Green
and the Davis Family.


A special salute goes out to
Dr. Morris Johnson, professor
at Miami-Dade North, for his
annual expedition to Ghana,
Kenya, South Africa,
Bostwana, etc. He outdid him-
self by organizing a trip to Los
Angeles, CA., Fiji Island,
Sydney and Australia.
Travelers on this educational
trip included Mary Simmons,
Dorothy Haggins, Marilyn
Randell, Barry Taylor, Betty
Spence, Juanita Kelly,
Francis Moore, Trevor
Thomas, Carolyn Frazier,
Minnie Cox, Paulette Panoo,
John Banks, Leonora Walkes,
Islynmay Thomas, Shirley
Ramsay and Janniet
Morrison.
The trip began in Ft.
Lauderdale as the big "17" flew
on American Air Lines to Los
Angeles, CA. for two days.
There, they went on a tour in
Beverly Hills, shopped, looked
at the movie stars' homes and
observed the walk of fame.
From there, they flew to Nadi,
Fiji on the Qantas
Airways/Pacific Air Ways and
lived on the beach overlooking
the blue-green ocean where
they saw train loads of the
islands main source, sugar
cane, four or mores times a
day. They also took the time to
visit Suva, the capital, a muse-


um and the garden of sleeping
giants. They saw exotic flowers
and experienced feeding the
birds, which ate out of their
hands without fear.
After leaving Fiji, the tourists
ended up at the Holiday Inn.
They visited the opera house,
China Town, The Rock,
Aquarium, Blue Mountain, the
legend of the three sisters and
dined in the highest restaurant
overlooking the city. In Miami,
they would've eaten steak,
chicken, shrimp or lobster, but
in Australia, they dined on
praws, rock oysters, ostrich,
kangaroo, octopus and more.
One of the highlights of the
trip was seeing the USA
Basketball Team play the
Sydney Kings with Dwyane
Wade and others winning 99 to
86. Simmons indicated that
the players were happy to see
them in the stands. They even
gave them an American wave.
All of the tourists brought nice
gifts back, including Simmons
who brought back an
Australian thermometer for her
friends.


Dorothy Cooper is credited
for starting the Henderson
Family Reunion in her home
in 1959. Since its beginning,
the family has gotten together
every other year in Ft.
Lauderdale, West Palm Beach
and Miami.
This year it was at Arcola
Lakes Park. Michael
Williams headed the planning


Congratulations to Sharon
Heath, who is alumni of the
year. She represents her Alma
Mater, Florida Memorial
University.
Naomi Allen-Adams and her
daughter Sceiva Adams-
Holland send a big hello to rel-
atives, old-time friends and
classmates. They both now live
in Tuskegee, Alabama.
Get well wishes to all of you,
from all of us. Kevin Meares,
Mae Hamilton-Clear, Sue
Francis, Gayle Sweeting-Gee,
Chester Fair, Freddie "Jabbo"
Johnson, Celestine Hepburn-
Brown, Alma Brown and

Willie "Slim" Jackson is to
Arcola Lakes Park what
Richard Williams is to Venus
and Serena Williams. His forte'
is tennis to anyone who wants
to learn for free and when he's
not hitting the ball, he's singing
with the Singing Angels or
chatting with the gang under
the "Tree of Knowledge."
Now that his two sons are at
Bethune Cookman on tennis
scholarships, Jackson is lone-
some and uses his time to
groom others. One of whom is
Victoria Williams at Dade
Christian, whose mother,
Vivian Copeland, a member of
Copeland construction, real
estate, etc., spends her time
transporting her four kids to
activities such as tennis to pre-
pare them for productive
careers.
Copeland indicated how
pleased she is with her chil-
dren, especially Victoria, who
will be a tennis star in due
time. It was evident of her ath-
letic prowess as she played
with Clyde Stevens, Dr. Phillip
Dawkins, U of M professor,
Kathy Williams and Charlene
Thompson in singles and
mixed doubles. Remember this
future star.

Is a woman who refuses to

settle deemed intimidating?


STANDARDS
continued from 1C
Men often find it difficult to
differentiate a strong-willed
woman from a narcissistic one..
Although they may stray, men
truly do appreciate a woman
who sticks to her morals. It's a
sign that she is able to make
her own decisions and will


adamantly stick by her word.
There is nothing wrong with
holding your nose up in the air;
it enables you to smell the BS
from a mile away. Remember, a
man that doesn't find your
strength appealing isn't on
your level anyway. Don't con-
form to the standards of others,
just make people respect your
'gangsta.'

Future Goals
The main future goal I
would love to accomplish
is to send one kid to col-
lege every year on behalf
of my company. From my
company's perspective, I
want to expand opening
up one or two more stu-
dios, so I can have more
people involved.

Owners
Nick and Lunia Decius

Products/Services
We are a full photography
studio. We range from
baby portraits and school
photos to weddings, high
school sports, etc.

Why did you start this
business and how has it
grown?
When I first came to this
country, I was a dish-
washer. I envisioned
myself doing something
better than what I was. I
decided to go school to
learn photography. When
I finished, I noticed the
need for a photo studio in
the Black community. I
started as a family por-
trait studio, but now we
have over fifty schools'
contracts and we are a
full service studio.

What were some of the
obstacles you faced and
how did you overcome
them?
Getting funds to get the
business going was one of
the biggest obstacles.
There weren't any studios
that serviced the young
people so when I wanted
to offer my services to the
schools, I encountered a
problem with some of the
bigger companies that


didn't want me to have a
chance to compete. As
time passed, there were
principals in place that
really pushed to give me
the opportunity to help
the kids out. I worked
hard and budgeted my
money to get to the point I
am now.

What were some of your


Nick Decius


past experiences and
how did you overcome
them?
One of the most crucial
experiences I encountered
was losing all of my
equipment because every-
one was going digital. I
had a lot of equipment
that wasn't able to com-
pete with the other com-
panies. I learned I had to
always stay updated to
what people want. Also,
the Bible says the more
you give the more you
receive. I learned to
always be nice to the
client and let them know
you care for them and
that you're there for
them. We are all family.

Where did you get the
name of your business
and does it have any sig-
nificant meaning?
In 1985, I opened up my
business with the name of
"Quality Photos Studios."
I wanted to let people
know I was doing quality
work. In 1987, when I
wanted to go corporate
with the business, the
lawyer told me that
another company had the
name already. I just
decided to use my name
and that's how I have
"Nick's Photo Studio."

1. Project Mission: The mission of the 2007 MIA Passenger Terminal
Survey consultant will be to assist the Miami-Dade Aviation Department in
detailing passengers' opinions, viewpoints and attitudes on MIA terminal
facilities and services. The survey will also identify the demographic profile,
spending habits and travel patterns of MIA passengers.

vide statistically valid data that can be used to draw conclusions regarding
the demographic profile of MIA passengers, the quality of service being
delivered to such passengers, and the improvements necessary to enhance
the level of customer service. The survey must provide distinct data by
date, time of day and airport location.
Therefore, the survey will be conducted throughout the day, on weekdays
and weekends. The study will be halted however, should an irregular con-
dition (for example a hurricane or labor strike) occur at the airport that threat-
ens to skew the data and the subsequent results. The same should apply to
calendared national holidays for the same reasons.
One survey per year will be conducted for three consecutive years. This sur-
vey should be conducted during mid April preferably between April 15 and
May 15 for each of the three consecutive years. Every year the consultant
will be required to combine the new results to the results of the previous year
in order to produce a comprehensive report that will help the County deter-
mine recurring trends, evaluate and compare results in order to establish an
accurate passenger profile.
Consultant will generate databases, pie charts, informative graphics and
other pertinent information that will directly relate to the attitudes of passen-
gers in the terminal area.
The survey attitudinal ratings shall be compared to other major airport hubs.
Major airport hubs means airports that are comparable in volume and traffic.
Comparison should be included in a chart in the final report provided to the
Aviation Department.
Sample Size:
The sample size and composition must be sufficient to draw reliable conclu-
sions from the results associated with specific airport locations, facilities and
significant categories of passengers. As a result, proponent should assume
a sample size of 2,750 people for each survey. The sample composition for
each survey shall include:
* Two thousand (2,000) departing passengers (250 per concourse)
* Five hundred (500) arriving. international passengers
* Two hundred and fifty (250) meeters and greeters
Further segmentation of the sample size amongst domestic versus interna-
tional, and connecting versus origin and destination,,w.ill-be determined dur-
ing the survey design. -

Advertisement for DBE Goal for Plan Annual Update
Department of Transportation 49 CFR Part 26
ESTABLISHMENT OF OVERALL DBE GOAL
FOR MDAD FOR FISCAL YEAR 2007
The Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) is prepar-
ing to establish an overall goal for participation by
Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in MDAD projects
for Fiscal Year 2007 (October 1, 2006 through
September 30, 2007). MDAD invites comments from
small, minorities and women, businesses, general con-
tractor groups, community organizations, and other offi-
cials or organizations which may have information con-
cerning the availability of disadvantaged and non-disad-
vantaged businesses, 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 partici-
pation DBE firms would have in MDAD projects if there
were no discrimination against them.
MDAD is proposing an overall goal of 16.0% for partici-
pation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in MDAD
projects for fiscal year 2007, based on information cur-
rently available. The rationale for this goal and support-
ing information will be available for public inspection for
30 days from the publication of this notice at MDAD's
Minority Affairs Office located at 4200 N.W. 36th Street,
Building 5-A, 3rd Floor, Miami, Florida 33122, Monday
through Friday from 8:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M.
MDAD and the U.S. Department of Transportation will
accept comments on the DBE goal for 45 days from the
date of this advertisement. The DBE Program Plan may
be reviewed at MDAD's Minority Affairs Office at the
address above and a copy of its Annual Update Report
may be obtained by calling (305) 876-7971.
