Liberty City closes another chapter, as Charter School closes


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite@mniamitimesonline.comn

After 12 years of operation,
the Miami-Dade School Board
has decided to close the door
on the first charter school in
Florida. With a load of financial
debt, the school board has
called it quits on the Liberty
City Charter School. The road
will come to an end at the
end of the school year. "The
school district has taken over
the operation of the school,"
says Principal Katrina Wilson-


Davis.
The Liberty City Charter
School opened in 1996 with its
two founders, Jeb Bush and T.
Willard Fair. Katrina Wilson-
Davis was chosen principal
of the school. The opening of
Liberty City school brought
in the media and attention
from across the country. Since
then, over 22,000 students
have attended charter schools
in the state of Florida. Shortly
after the school was opened,
Bush was elected as Governor
of Florida while T. Willard Fair


KATRINA WILSON-DAVIS
Principal


was appointed to the Florida
Department of Education.
Unfortunately, throughout
the years, as Bush took
responsibility as Governor his
connection to Liberty gradually
disappeared.
Now the school is closed
and over 200 students must
find another school to attend
in a community. that has few
options. "This community

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


A 2 THE MIAMI TIMES MARCH 19-25 20 8


Racial discrimination

in housing
his topic is so old it has become a trite expression. But
the plea for the elimination of racial discrimination
in housing came up again last week by a committee
in Europe that has a global commitment to combat racial
discrimination.

The committee's report charged the United States to do
more to remedy the persistent effects of racial discrimination.
Congress, the president and the candidates vying to replace
him should take heed and renew their commitment to
decent housing for all Americans.

The committee had some good things to say about
California's Housing Element law as a national model and
a step toward remedying discrimination. The law, which
is similar to a Florida law, requires cities and counties to
plan for affordable housing rather than just building luxury
condos and.exclusive gated communities. Due to the legacy
of slavery and divisive Jim Crow laws and "redlining," racial
minorities are overrepresented among those with housing
challenges. Accordingly, such plans can help ensure that
these families can overcome generations of discriminatory
housing practices.

Congressman Alcee Hastings is a member of this
committee, and he passes on this suggestion: Congress, the
administration, state and local governments and the public
all have a role in achieving the treaty's goal of ending racial
discrimination and eradicating its pernicious legacy.

Let's take the committee's advice and work together to
make the promise of equal opportunity for all real in this
country by first ensuring that we all have a safe, affordable
place to call home.

Forget the "Old

Folks at Home"
Congratulations to Jacksonville Democrat Tony Hill
for his efforts to retire the outdated Way Down
Upon the Suwannee River as our state song and
brickbacks to the Republican majority who seem to want to
keep it.

The bill breezed through the House with unanimous
support of the Tourism and Trade Committee, but has met
with opposition and reluctance by a Senate Committee.
Some senators are basing their opposition on tradition of
the Stephen Foster tune adopted by the state in 1935, but
the song has been controversial in recent years for its racial
undertones. Gov. Charlie Crist refused to play the song
during his inauguration because of lyrics that include the
word darkiess."

Senator Hill was right in saying that the song is dated
and does not reflect the current day Florida. Last year, Hill
approached the Florida Music Educators' Association to
host a state-wide song writing contest to generate entries for
a new state song. Jan Hinton, a music teacher at Broward
County's Pinecrest Middle School, won with her song Where
the Sawgrass meets the Sky. Hinton beat out 243 entries.

Crime out of control
R-esidents are becoming alarmed about the recent crime
wave that has taken over our community. Almost daily,
we read about daylight robberies and violent killings that
make us wonder what is the reason behind this sudden wave of
lawlessness that seems to be threatening our way of life here.
On Wednesday, two women were killed in a double homicide
inside a Little Havana townhouse. On Saturday morning in Liberty
City, three men were killed and one critically wounded in a drive-
by shooting at Northwest 79t Street and 22nd Avenue. These are
just two of the atrocities that this community has had to live with
recently, and we see little evidence of any relief in sight.
Our police are doing their job, and the community must do its
part in helping us get a handle on this lawless upsurge.

OPINION


BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


3A THE MIAMI TIMES, MARCH 19-25, 2008


BREINALDCLYN


Steward of our own media


I am plagiarizing Bishop
Curry's radio show, so let me
apologize up front. But he played
the full sermon of Reverend
Jeremiah Wright's that has been
making the media rounds. I can't
hear WMBM in my office, so I
literally pulled over and listened
to the sermon of Obama's Pastor.
I quite frankly hate the press,
when I learn how distorted the
sermon has become by playing
a snippet and not giving the
full content. Let me. rephrase
- I hate the mainstream press.
Thank God for Black media that
can allow thinking Black people
the opportunity to hear the full
story.
The sermon has to be listened
to in its entirety and I don't want
to destroy it by only giving you
an excerpt. The context of the
sermon is after the 9-11 attacks,
and the Pastor draws parallels
to the desire for vengeance that
Americans were feeling to the
same desires of vengeances
that the Jews were feeling after
Jerusalem was sacked.
The Pastor tells us it is a time
for self-evaluation are you
right with God. Are you right
with your family and neighbors?
Have you told people close to
you that you love them. What a
terrible thought that is.
He goes on to state that it is
a time for social transformation.
That this country has abused
the Native Americans, Africans,
bombed and killed innocent
children and women in Iraq,
Vietnam, Grenada, Panama,
Korea and that now people we
have attacked are bombing us
back. It may not be what we
want to hear, it may not fit with
our glorified self-image, but
it is true. He did not invent
this idea but extracted it from
a White male U.S. Ambassador
who spoke on Fox News about
Iraq.
Reverend Wright quotes
Malcolm X who said one day
the chickens will come home to
roost. It means that our foreign
policies of hatred, racism, and
destruction are going to come
back to us. He was not preaching
hatred and racism, but rather

speaking against
it and speaking for
Christian Love.
Ihavemanywhite
Christian friends
who keep telling
me that Barack Obama is not a
Christian, because he does not
attend a Christian Church. I am
now wondering if that is a code
word for Black church.( I always
find it amusing when a mortal
determines who is a Christian
and who is not.) I heard the full
sermon and that preacher was
speaking the Word. Maybe not
the Word that White American
wants to hear, but definitely the
Word that people need to hear.
When Barack Obama first
began to run, Black America
was not behind him. He was
half African and half white. He
was too educated. After South
Carolina, when the race card
was pulled on Barack Obama
- the veil over the eyes of Black
America was lifted. The beloved
Bill Clinton, our "first Black
President" was actually a white
man from Arkansas. Barack
Obama, the dark tinted Senator
from Illinois, became an African
American.
My feelings during this election
have changed. I was happy that
a Black man was running, but
did not give him much of a
chance. I liked Bill Clinton, but
felt that Hilary Clinton was too
cold. The Clintons get nasty
when they lose and seem to
want to win at any cost. Barack
Obamna despite the shovels
of junk thrown his way has
maintained his dignity and I am
now an ardent supporter of the
one candidate who might be able
to radically change this country
for the good. The Black political
elite still support the Clintons,
but the people support Barack
Obama, and I am hoping that
people will win. The Obama
movement is much like the Civil
Rights Movement, where the
people led, and the leadership
pushed for the status quo. Many
of those "leaders" were replaced
by new leaders who represented
the hearts and souls of their
constituents.

Julie Bru, who served as deputy to former Miami City
Attorney Jorge Fernandez was given the job permanently
last week by the City Commission. She won the job on a 3-2
vote, but only after serious questioning from Commissioner
Michelle Spence-Jones who criticized Bru for not
speaking out against Fernandez's wrongdoings before his
resignation.

The federal government has given us the bad news
that the South Florida inflation rate is the highest of 14
metropolitan areas tracked. If you have visited a gas pump
or a grocery store lately, you already know that and you
might as well get ready for more price increases.

Residents of Wynnwood in the Little Haiti area of the City
of Miami are calling it other names because of plans for a
new recreational building at rundown Roberto Clement6
Park that has been closed for three years. City Manager,
Pete Hernandez and Capital Improvement Director, Ola
Aluko are refusing to include a library and swimming
pool, but Tony Romano and. the Miami Workers Center
have given the City 30 days to find the extra million needed
for the improvements. Stayed tuned.


Everybody is wondering what happened to those big name
entertainers who were no-shows on Sunday at the world
famous Calle Ocho Street Festival. The stage at 17th Avenue
failed to produce big-name acts such as Rihanna, Eldar,
Chaka Khan (who was at Jazz in the Gardens), Herbie
Hancock, Buster Poindexter, and Harry Connick, Jr.


Officials of the ill-fated Miami-Dade Empowerment Trust
have copped a plea and cut a deal with the county. CEO
Audra Wallace and his top aide Rodney Carey will get a
6-month consulting contract while commissioners try to
figure out how the Trust managed to waste most of the $63
million they were supposed to help poor people with. Stay
tuned.


Local residents are hoping that the Liberty City Charter
School will find a way out of its financial problems brought
on by a legal battle that the school lost to a previous
landlord. We hope the school board gives them a bit more
time. Where is Jeb Bush when we need him most?

The 3rd Annual Jazz in the Gardens


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.coin

Last weekend, the box office
made over $10,000,000 in
movies and Calle Ocho came
to town to share the Hispanic
culture but over 4,000 people
gathered at Dolphins Stadium
in Miami Gardens. No one
came to watch the Dolphins
lose another game but they


event which brought many
celebrities on one stage
included legendary Chaka
Khan, George Duke, Nancy
Wilson, and the O'Jays with
new artists such as Alegbra,
Chrisette Michele, Elin and
Anthony David. Stanley
Clarke, Mike Phillips, Jean
Caze, and Jessie Jones gave
a riveting performance with
their soft jazz sounds. Wyclef

gathered for the two-day
event, the 3rd Annual Jazz in
the Gardens.
With the scorching heat,
fans scattered through the
outdoor park to hear the
sounds of their favorite tunes
by their favorite artist. The


Jean, who was one of the
featured artist, performance
was cut short because he
exceeded his time on stage
but he continued to entertain
the crowd with his music.
On Sunday afternoon, the
calmly collective Motown


artist KEM engaged in a
church service with the crowd
by having praise and worship.
Nancy Wilson captivated the
audience when she dedicated
a touching performance to
her husband. Gifted fifteen
year-old Patrick "PJ" Bartley
astonished the crowd with
his smooth assortments with
the saxophone. The poignant
Anthony David brought
Valentine's Day in March by
serenading the crowd with
a song called "Words" from
his upcoming album and
India Arie's, "Part of my Life".
Chrisette Michele reminded us
of the essence of Billie Holiday.
With her caramel skin, Michele
appeased the crowd with
the stylish vibration of jazz
music. Michele said, "I really
love coming to South Florida.
I love vacationing here. It is
a pleasure for me to be able
to share a stage -with such
amazing talent."
Local resident, Tarlonda
Tripplet said, "I love the Jazz
Festival. I love the new artists
that were featured in this
event. There was so much
diversity of talent that made
the show come to life. The new
artists like Chrisette Michele
and Algebra, they are going to
go far because they are really
good."
The festival also brought to
the stadium local celebrities
that included Jawan Strader
of CBS 4, Karen Vaughn and
Freddie Cruz from the Hot
105 radio. Michael Baisden
of the Michael Baisden Show
stopped by to greet the Barack
Obama fans. Mayor Shirley
Gibson of Miami Gardens
guaranteed the audience that
the Jazz in the Gardens would
be a continual event in the
City of Miami Gardens and
she looked forward to doing
more events like these in the
upcoming future.

Senate rules out sagging baggy pants


BAGGY
continued from 1A

schools to enforce the 'no
sagging of the pants' in the
classrooms and bringing
punishment to those students
who do not abide by the
rules. The purpose of the
law is to show the kids the
model of dressing for success
and dressing for where you
are going. "They have sadly
adopted a fad that will hinder
their chances of getting a
good job. The children of our
society have increasingly been
hindered by this sort of attire
and it has been silent. People
have spoken of it in whispers.
I agree, it is long overdue. We
thought this "trend" or "fad"
would go away. says Bullard.

needs to be addressed now if
not for this generation but for


the generation that is coming
behind us.
Opa Locka was one of the
first cities in the U.S. to
outlaw sagging of pants. Other
states such as Louisiana and
Georgia have tried to enforce
the bill but their attempts
have failed. Although many
might wonder why should the
school and the lawmakers
get involved when clearly it is
the parents responsibility to
monitor their kids wardrobe
but with the disappearance
of a two-parent household
within the U.S., many parents
are not there to monitor their
kids wardrobe' for school.
"We have an obligation, as
leaders and social engineers,
to call to the attention of all
of our constituents any issue
that will affect their ability to
become productive citizens in
society," says Bullard.


Liberty City Charter School closes


SCHOOL
continued from 1A

brilliant individuals who can
conquer the world with their
knowledge. Within the past 12
years of being here, I learned
that Black people really do
care about there kids but it
is unfortunate that the few
schools in our communities
are being demolished," says
Wilson-Davis.
With such a benevolent
spirit, Wilson-Davis quotes, "It
is sad that the school is closing


down and I am heartbroken
but I must continue to trust
God. I was not sent to this
school _but I was lead to this
school. I grew up in this
community and it has been a
great opportunity to be able
to serve here. As I told the
parents of the students in the
meeting last night, I have met
some of the greatest people
in the world while working
here. Whatever God desires to
do with the school, students,
and myself; well, it is all in his
hands."

Senator Bullard and
Senator Gary Siplin have been
ridiculed for the bill. Many
have disagreed with the bill
stating that our focus should
be on more important issues
within the economy such
as lack of j6bs, gas prices,
foreclosure, and the threat of
a possible recession.

Boca housing agency slammed for near-riot over applications


By Luis F. Perez
The fallout from the near
riot outside the Boca Raton
Housing Authority's office
started Thursday.
The U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban
Development suggested the
authority redo its application
process for subsidized housing.
The City Council wants
authority representatives to
appear before it. And angry calls
from advocates poured in.
The authority decided
late Tuesday to change the
procedure for 600 applications
to get on a waiting list for


subsidized housing. A public
notice said the housing agency
would give out applications
starting 9 a.m. Wednesday.
But hundreds of people
started camping out the night
before at the office on Glades
Road Boca Raton police
called Judith Aigen, authority
executive director, to the office
around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday as
the crowd grew, and she decided
to give out the applications
then.
Hundreds more came to
the office hoping to get an
application. When housing
officials announced that they
only had applications left for


the disabled, the crowd grew
unruly. Police in riot gear
stepped in.
HUD understands why Aigen
made the decision, but is
concerned it wasn't fair, said
Armando Fana, field director for
HUD's Miami office. The people
who followed instructions had
almost no chance.
The authority also had told
applicants that they would
accept the first 200 starting
9 a.m. Thursday. That, too,
changed after the unrest.
Authority officials decided
to accept all applications
no matter when they were
returned.

Relay for life at MDC North Campus


The American Cancer Society will celebrate its Rally
for Life in Northwest Dade March 28-29


The American Cancer Society
will celebrate its Relay For Life
in northwest Miami-Dade March
28 29. Relay For Life is a
celebration of life in honor of
those touched by cancer. Relay
For Life also raises funds for
the American Cancer Society's
programs of research, education,
advocacy, and service- programs
that can reduce cancer deaths
and cancer incidence, and
improve the quality of life for
those touched by cancer.


Relay For Life is a true
community event where people
of all ages and from all walks
of life come together for a
common cause. We walk,
jog, or run relay style around
the tracks or pathways at
school or community football
fields, fairgrounds, and parks
for eighteen hours. Friends,
relatives, local businesses,
hospitals, schools, faith based
organizations, service clubs and
other organizations organize


teams of 10-15 people. Each
team member is asked to raise
a minimum of $100 before the
event.
Food, fun, and camaraderie
are part of the Relay For Life
experience. There is the opening
ceremony and first lap called
our "victory lap." We cheer on
our local cancer survivors, our
friends, family, and co-workers
who have survived cancer.
There is also a more solemn
aspect of the event during the
Luminaria ceremony. This is
an emotional candle lighting
ceremony to honor those who
have survived cancer and to


remember those who have not.
This powerful ceremony ties
participants personally to the
cause of fighting cancer. Relay
For Life is about a community
taking up the fight.
Relay For Life it's all about
providing Hope for the future,
Progress towards a cure, and
Answers to cancer questions.
One community, one mission,
one fight!
For more information about
Relay For Life or how to become
involved, please contact Mae
Whitehead at the American
Cancer Society at 305-779-2860
or Mae.Whitehead@Cancer.org

Is Juanita Bynum reunited

with husband Thomas Weeks?


Thomas Weeks III recently pleaded guilty to assault charges for beating his wife and
a hotel parking lot. He was sentenced to community service and anger management
classes. According to EURweb, his wife Juanita Bynum said: "When I saw him [in
court], it reminded me of the first time we got married. No one tells you what to do


with all of the love you feel for the person."

BL.ACK.S MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


14B THE MIAMI TIMES, MARCH 19-25, 2008


He died so we can have everlasting life


Resurrection Day will be
celebrated in a few days. I
love celebrating holidays, and
birthdays, and special events
- but I love best to celebrate
those holidays that are done
in remembrance of my Savior,
Jesus Christ Christmas
and Easter. In preparation of
a message that I shared last
week, I searched for information
on crucifixion. Over the years,
I have read many excerpts and
articles about this cruel and


inhuman punishment. I have
even written of some of the details
of crucifixion in this column in
prior years. The reason is not
to offend or upset anyone, but
we need to understand the great
sacrifice that our Lord made
so that we could live free of the
bondage of sin.
He did not simply tilt His
head to one side and expel all
of His breath and died. He
suffered a horrible ordeal. The
Romans were a very cruel race


of people. They loved killing
for sport. Perhaps some of you
remember the movie that was
released a few years ago about
a soldier who was captured,
enslaved and commanded to
fight various warriors for the
entertainment of the Romans.
This was not just a movie
depicting a completely fictional
storyline. Romans did kill for
sport regularly. This was a part
of their lifestyle. Crucifixion
was not a new or rare method
of death during Jesus' time.
He was not the first man to be
crucified by the Romans, nor
was He the last. However, none
of the others who were crucified
set us free from the ravages
and evil clutch of the enemy in
our lives except Jesus.


Everything about Jesus'
death was scriptural and
prophetic. Even the beatings
He endured were foretold by
the Old Testament prophets.
Read all of Isaiah 53, but
particularly verse 5 where
Isaiah relates that Jesus
would be pierced (by the
Roman soldiers to confirm
that He was dead); and beaten
and whipped. There are many
accounts by prophets in the
Old Testament that describes
events that happened to
Jesus at His arrest, during
His beating and journey to
the hill called Golgatha and
His subsequent death. Jesus
could not simply have been
killed by an arrow or sword.
He also could not die as a


result of His beating. He had
to die according to the way
that it was prophesied many
hundreds of years before His
birth. And yes, He had to die
so that we could live. Romans
6:23 states that "the wages of
sin are death." If Jesus had
not died, we would have had
to.
The bottom line is that death
had to occur for us to have an
opportunity to live eternally.
Just as Jesus had to die, we
must also die to our old lifestyles
and habits that kept us from
a right, intimate relationship
with Him. Paul tells us in
2 Corinthians 5:17 that we
must become new creatures if
we are in Christ, and the old
must pass away. That means


that old anger must die so that
forgiveness can live. Hurt and
offense must die so that joy can
live. Compassion cannot live
in us unless selfishness and
self-centerdness dies. We will
never know peace unless fear
and doubt dies. According
to God's Word, idolatry and
witchcraft is rebellion so they
must die so that obedience
to the Will of God many live.
Hatred, bigotry and prejudice
must die so that love may live.
As you celebrate the newness
of spring, and especially the
Resurrection of Jesus Christ,
do not resurrect your past
pain and guilt. Let that die
so that Jesus Christ may live
abundantly in you.
Happy Resurrection Day!

Quick action for stroke victims s


STROKE IDENTIFICATION
During a BBQ, a friend
stumbled and took a little fall.
She assured everyone that she
was fine (they offered to call
paramedics). She said she
had just tripped over a brick
because of her new shoes. They
got her cleaned up and gave
her a new plate of food. While
she appeared a bit shaken up,
Ingrid went about enjoying
herself the rest of the evening.
Ingrid's husband called later
telling everyone that his wife
had been taken to the hospital.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


...... .. .. .

ByD.Rcard ara0


Lona Brown Mathis,
president, National
Association of Negro Business
and Professional Women's
Club, and membership took
the time to recognize some
phenomenal women by the
South Florida Club. It was a
unique program held at the
Kazah Shrine Temple, Opa-
locka, last Saturday, in a
brunch atmosphere with over
100 persons in attendance.
As the guests arrived during
the morning shower, they were
excited to hear the Psi Phi
Band providing the kinds of
music that took their minds
off of the inclement weather
out side.
When everyone became
settled, Mathis took to the
mic and graciously indulged
everyone with her
skill of reciting poetry
with words describing
her feelings, her early
childhood, and her
many cousins just
before introducing
Cupidine D. Dean as
mistress of ceremony.
Dean listed many ANG
phenomenal women
in her opening, as
each selectee was escorted
to the head table while the
band played music of "pomp
and circumstance" to create
a majestic atmosphere. The
honorees included Leona
Cooper, representing Catholic
Ministries; Nancy Dawkins,
community activist; Julie
Edwards, executive director,
Community Action Agency;
Arnett Hepburn, outstanding


citizen; Doris Lee,
fraternal leader; z
Robin Moncur,
Miss Bethune
Cookmen U
alumni queen and
,active community
person; Iris
Fletcher, founder, LBS
Handicap Agency; and Dr.
Gwendolyn Robinson,
president, Gamma
Gamma Chapter of
Sigma Gamma Rho,
Inc.
Others on the
program included
Shirley Worthy, Doris
Grant, Jennifer Lewis
whose presentation
of Maya Angelou's PINi
Phenomenal Woman
brought a standing ovation.
She was one of the
best, while Martha
Day and Angela
Dawkins presented
the trophies to the
honorees and each one
responded eloquently
and appreciatively.
Some of the men in
ELOU attendance included
Mr. Worthy who filled
the room with his
melodious voice as he sang,
The Impossible Dream, Dr.
Herman Dorsett was joined
by Herman Dorsett, Jr. and
grandson, Deacon Franklin
Clark blessed the food, and
Howard Porter took pictures.
Other females included
Kathleen Thurston, Regina
Francois, Leona Baker,
Margaret Cruz, Evalia
Francis, Alice Harrell,


Ramona Lewis, Arthurine
Jackson, Alyce Martin, Helen
McGuire, Luticha
Perpall, Alice Sidney,
Gloria Starks, Naomi
Smith and Robin
Mathis who closed out
the program with her
words of wisdom.


If you ever visit the FA


I City of Miami Springs,
the name of Glenn Hammond
Curtiss and his mansion are
well known. Sowell known until
the Curtiss Mansion Board Of
Directors celebrated
his accomplishment
as 'The Henry Ford
of Aviation' from his
being credited with 400
patents, 500 inventions
and gave South Florida:
Miami Springs, Hialeah
and Opa-locka. One of
KNEY the dignitaries invited
was our own Dr. Enid
C. Pinkney, a former Dade
Heritage President and founder
of the African-American
Committee, Church of the
Open Door, and Historicial
Hampton House, Inc. She was
invited by JoEllen M. Phillips,
president.
Pinkney arrived in time to
join the electric slide dance,
along with the electric slide
dancers, Mrs. Jimmy Harrell,
Lee Johnson, and Arnold
Knight that led the line.
They were joined by JoEllen
M. Phillips, president, Carol
Foster, vice president, Susan
Stinson, secretary, and Ruth
Jones, treasurer.
At the end of the dance,
Phillips introduced the guest
speaker, Dr. Paul George,
followed by auction leader, Buzz
Fleischman, who raised several
thousand dollars, including


I


auctioning off a Heat basketball
for $300 with signatures of all
of the recent players,
and a diamond stone for
$700.
Pinkney really
enjoyed herself and she
represented us well.
She was also proud of
the band, especially
the members that she
AIR knows quite
well. It was a
successful night via the
auction, camaraderie,
good music, and plans -
by the corporation to
continue the process. .


Speaking of Dr.
Enid C. Pinkney,
she joined Rev. Dr. R.
Joaquin Willis, pastor and
committee members to provide
the community with another
celebration of Amistad Sunday
service, last Sunday, with
Rev. Art Cribbs, pastor, San
Marino, Congregational United
Church of Christ, Los Angeles,

be recognized, Andrea Pratt,
Talladega College; Gala Brown
Munnings, Fisk University, Dr.

you to succeed in life. We are
very sure your dearly beloved
Parents and Grand Parents
want only the very best for
you! Please read this portion
of my column and keep this
with you at all times or in your
bedroom on your dresser.
No one has more pride in
your accomplishments than
the older generation. But I
am not going to tell the older
generation how bright you are,
nor am I going to say we have
made a mess of things and
you the younger ones are
the hope of mankind. I would
like to reverse that process.
Some of the most remarkable
people today are your parents
and grand parents. I think
you will agree. Let me tell you
about them. Your Parents and
grand parents (1919-1969)
have increased your life
expectancy almost fifty (50%)
percent by the work they all
put in, who while cutting
the work day by a third have
more than double per capital
output. They are the ones who
have given you a healthier
world then they found and
because of this you don't
have to fear epidemic of flu,
diphtheria, typhus, small
pox. scarlet fever, measles or
mumps. These remarkable
people lived through history's


Murphy: 'Mel B tricked me into having a baby'


Eddie Murphy has revealed
the real reason he doesn't
want to have anything to
do with his 11-month-old
daughter Angel by Spice Girl
Mel B because he believes
she trapped him into having
a baby.
The Nutty Professor star
claimed 32-year-old Mel
insisted she was on birth
control, and revealed they
only had sex three times,
according to a US report.
"What was supposed to be
a casual relationship ended
with her having his baby
and taking him to court for
millions," a source told The
National Enquirer.
Tricked: Eddie Murphy has
spoken out to slam former
girlfriend Mel B, who he claims
tricked him into having a
baby, which is why he will not


EDDIE MURPHY
see their daughter Angel
Although Eddie accepts that
Angel is his daughter, he has
said that he won't see the little
girl, because he doesn't want
to set eyes on Mel.
A source said: "He says he
will have to wait until Angel is
older before he can get to know
her without any interference
from her mother."
Secrets behind the couple's


MELANIE BROWN
doomed three-month fling
have been revealed in legal
papers in which Eddie, 46,
states that Mel allegedly asked
him for a millionn house, plus
living expenses for 18 years in
exchange for her silence while
she was pregnant.
But Eddie baulked at the
demands and it is claimed he
has since refused to see the
baby and the Spice Girl.

Many knew what it was to be
poor, what it was to be hungry
and cold. And because of this
they were determined that
it would not happen to you,
that you would have a better
life. You would have food to


eat, milk to drink, vitamins
to nourish you, a warm home,
better schools and more
opportunities to succeed
than they did. Because. they
gave you the best, you are the
tallest, healthiest, brightest
and probably best looking


generation to inhabit the
land. And because they were
materialistic, you work fewer
hours, learn more, have more
leisure time, travel to more
distant places and have more
of a chance to follow your life
ambitions.

young professionals experience
socially, professionally and
civically.

courses they offer as well as
the major exhibits and cultural


programs that make up the
library's rich history.

jams and his 5 year marriage
to actress Halle Berry. Benet
recently released his studio
album, Hurricane, which is a
musical composition of Benet's
life in the past five years. His
latest album can also be seen
as a dedication of love and
respect for his daughter India,

same name.

On Saturday, March 1,
Commissioner Barbara J.
Jordan lent a hand to more
than 100 District 1 residents
in search of ways to save
their homes from mortgage
foreclosure or other financial
counsel. The commissioner
hosted a free foreclosure
seminar at North Dade
Regional Library, offering
advice from financial
experts on measures to avoid
foreclosure, homeowners'
legal rights and warning
signs of mortgage fraud.
Residents had the
opportunity to get one-on-
one counseling sessions
with financial counselors
and representatives from
Washington Mutual, Housing
and Urban Development
(HUD), Miami-Dade County
Tax Collector and Consumer
Service Department,
Millennium Group World,
and Mayor's Mortgage
Fraud Task Force. The
resources provided by these
financial institutions gave
residents the tools needed to
mitigate with their lenders
- a valuable asset when
mortgages nationwide falling
into foreclosure shot up to a
record high of 0.83 percent


Judith Ayers of HUD speaks to homeowners at a free foreclosure prevention seminar
hosted by Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan on Saturday, March 1 at the North Dade
Regional Library in Miami Gardens. Ayers was among several financial experts and


representatives from major lending agencies who offered
foreclosures and other personal finance issues.


at the end of last year,
according to the Mortgage
Bankers Association.
"I believe that the residents
left feeling encouraged by


the information they were
provided. Each resident
was given the opportunity
to speak personally with the
credit counselors, lawyers,


advice on mortgage rights,

and lenders, allowing them
to find practical solutions
to their mortgage and
credit problems," said
Commissioner Jordan.

Who Cares



What Black People Think



Anyway?

If you think nobody gives a damn what Black people think, think again.Some
people care a lot. Especially when they need something from you.
Take corporations.They want you to buy their products. And banks care
whether you're going to give them your money. Politicians.They care what you
think when they're looking for your vote.And TV and radio stations hope you
will pay attention to their shows.
The point is, all these people want something from you. And when people
want something from you,you have got power over them.We should learn to
use that power wisely to make the changes we need to make.
Give your money,your votes and your loyalty to people who deserve it.
People who are going to give you something in return. People who are doing
the most for the Black community.
Who cares what Black people think? A lot of people do.
The Miami Times is about the business of communication. Communicating to
you the power you have and letting you know how you can use it. For instance,
right now there are 32 million Black people in this country and last year we
earned more than 400 billion dollars.


That's clout.
