With the increase of gas prices, many
South 1'loridians have found alternate
ways of commuting across town without
spending money on gas. Tri-rail alone
has exceeded over 10,000 passengers a
day and the numbers continue to grow.
Miami-Dade County Commissioners
will vote in June whether or not to raise
transit fares by 33 percent.
If approved, the base fare for trains
and buses would increase to $2. In
addition, monthly passes would go up
from $75 to $100 and there would be no
more free rides on the downtown Metro
mover. Senior citizens, who usually ride
free, would have to pay a reduced fare.
Currently about one-third of all Transit
passengers are riding for free.
Alan James, a Liberty City resident,

no other means of
transportation. "I
don't make enough
to be paying for extra
bus fare."
"I don't think that it
is fair. We commute
everyday and many
JORDAN of us can't even make
ends meet. They are
saying that it is all about the gas prices.
No, they are taking money from the poor
people. They know exactly what they
are doing in county and stuffing all that
money in their pocket," said Dawud
Muhammad, an avid rider of Miami-
Dade transit.

Let the countdown begin.
*The math along with much
of the conventional wisdom
- says that Barack Obama
could wrap up the Democratic
presidential nomination by next
Wednesday. After adding a handful
of superdelegates over the long
holiday weekend, Obama has 1,978
delegates 49 from the 2,026
currently required to clinch and
198 ahead of Hillary Clinton.
That needed number could
change after Saturday, when the
Democratic National Committee's
rules committee could finally
decide the fate of the disputed votes
and delegates from the Florida and
Michigan primaries. But there
are only 86 pledged delegates left
up for grabs -- 55 in Puerto Rico
on Sunday, and 31 combined in
Montana and South Dakota a week
from today in the final primaries.

With the proportional allocation
of delegates, Obama is likely to
win enough to reach 2,026. And
Obama's campaign and supporters
expect that even if the threshold
changes after Saturday, soon


after the last primaries, enough
superdelegates will declare for him
to put him over the top.
Clinton, however, shows no signs
of giving up. She is campaigning

CRA's opportunity

to stand up
he City of Miami has the opportunity to demonstrate its
support for Overtown's cultural heritage by conveying
a lot on the North side of the historic Lyric Theater, the
plaza, to the Black Achieves History and Research Foundation
of South Florida, Inc. Located Northwest Block# 36 and
adjacent to the front sidewalk of the historic Lyric Theater, the
lot requested is owned by the CRA.
It is not Block #36, which is still in litigation. The lot
requested is one of the three that comprise the plaza. It lies
immediately at the front door to the historic Lyric Theater. The
Black Archives owns the property of this CRA lot. Numerous
times the CRA has expressed its intent to convey the lot.
Several years ago at the opening of the Lyric's new Welcome
Center, Gallery and the Lobby there were several occasions
when heavy rains flooded the area immediately outside the
front door of the theater including the CRA's lot. It was at that
time that the CRA discussed plans to provide proper drainage
and convey the lot to the Black Archives. The drainage was
completed, but the land still has not been conveyed. Through
the Miami-Dade County General Obligation Bond (GOB), the
Black Archives has limited funds and immediate deadlines to
use that lot as a part of the third phase of the expansion. The
expansion is needed to help make the theater operational.
Under the leadership of the City of Miami 9RA Chair, the
CRA Board has the opportunity to stand up for Overtown's
cultural heritage by calling a special meeting of the CRA
Board for these purposes: 1) authorizing the CRA Executive
Director to issue a letter confirming the CRAs commitment to
transfer a warranty deed for the lot to the Black Archives and
2) authorizing the CRA Executive Director to issue an RFP for
the disposition of the lot.
We encourage City Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones,
District 5, to take immediate action so that the historic Lyric
Theater Miami's oldest theater and the pride and the joy of the
community can become operational--once again.

OPINION


5A THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 28-JUNE 5, 2008


In 2004-2005, Florida ranked
45 out of 50 in spending per
capital per student, which placed
us behind more impoverished
states like Georgia. Now, thanks
to the Republican Leglislature
and Republican Governor Crist,
we are dead last we now rank
50th in the country in spending
per student. Rudy Crew and
superintendents across the State
are reeling from the decisions by
our Governor and Leglislature
that led to a reduction in funding
to the Miami Dade County Public
Schools by $284 million. Bishop
Curry correctly pointed out that
it is not Rudy Crew or the School
Board's fault but the Governor
and Leglislature. Bishop Curry
in one of the most rousing
speeches that I have heard in
my life led a NAACP fact finding
meeting that revealed that while
we are cutting spending for
schools, we are spending $300
million funding new prisons,
and we spend $60 million
administering the FCAT exam.
Because of the FCAT exam, we
now have a 50% graduation
rate. Senator Fredericka
Wilson pointed out during the
meeting that many students
can circumvent the ,FCAT by
taking ACT or SAT exams and
thereby graduate. Tee Holloway
statement resonated with me,
"we are forgetting that the most
important thing is to educate
our children." This point hit
a nerve for me. I don't care if
you are black, white, brow n or
green, conservative, liberal,
radical, born again, 'atheist, or
Moslem most sane, mammals
care about their offspring, and
we must insure that they receive
a good education..
The NAACP is leading an
effort to push the Governor to
find money for education. They
want a special session to be
called and for the leglislature to
go back and fund schools. We
feed to remind Governor Crist
that while he was campaigning
for Governor that he promised to
increase funding for education
when he was running for office,
and promised that education
would be untouched when he
and Speaker Mar.co Rubio were
cutting taxes. Well, they must
not have been very good at math
or they don't know the difference
between a plus sign and a
negative sign, because taking
away $284 million dollars is


not helping our jI
struggling school I
system. Since
2004, the public
school system has continued to
receive less funding than the
year before. It is amazing that
Superintendent Crew despite a
declining budget can increase
the reading and math scores of
our children.
Some might argue that
.they don't want to pay higher
taxes. No one wants to pay
higher taxes, but as one of my
clients at school system pointed
out. It cost $288 per summer
session for a child. The summer
sessions are being cut this year.
Now, people who got back $300
in taxes will have the pleasure
of paying $200 per week to send
their children to private camps
during the summer. Weigh $300
in tax rebate versus $2,400 for
summer camp fees. I would
rather pay the tax and save
$2,100 on summer camps. Oh,
yes, let's not forget that juvenile
justice programs are being cut,
funding for pregnant woman,
'funding for elderly, funding
for colleges, bright future
scholarships, and subsidies for
adoption. Our Republicans fight
against abortion, but then cut
funding for pregnant teens and
funding for families that want to
adopt. Is that a mixed message
or are they just being two face.
While our property taxes
went down a little. We will pay
more hidden taxes such as tolls;
parking, airplane ticket taxes,
court'filing fees, and tuition at
state colleges, to just name a
few hidden taxes.
I strongly urge everyone to join
the NAACP in its fight to save
our schools. We need smaller
class sizes, we need reading
coaches, school psychologists
and our teachers and other
school system employees need
raises to help keep up with
the cost of inflation (gas alone
can destroy a tight household
budget). We can pass on the
cost by developing a progressive
tax system that taxes the rich,
and eases the burden on the
middle class and poor. For
instance, raise the tax on
luxury items like Rolex watches,
private jets and luxury yachts.
Increase the intangible tax for
the stocks and bonds, increase
tax on casinos, cigarettes and
alcohol.

Presidential candidate Barack Obama committed a boo
boo calling the city of Sunrise 'Sunshine,' but the over-
flowing crowd of 16,000 at the arena got the message
loud and clear. His 39-minute speech was frequently
interrupted with load cheers and applause.

So many lies have been told about fixing the affordable
housing mess that no one was surprised last week when
Donald LaVoy, who is leading the federal governments'
takeover of the Miami-Dade Housing Agency said the
waiting list had tripled to nearly 100,000. Stay tuned.

The Mardi Gras and Gulfstream Racetrack casinos in
Broward County are complaining of unfair treatment
because the Seminole Tribe's Hard Rock Casino on
Friday will offer the largest poker tournament in Florida
history and they can't do the same because of state law.
The tribe has several advantages over the other casinos,
including the right to operate 24 hour a day, which draws
more serious players and allows it to hold multiplayer
tournaments for larger stakes. Stay tuned.
********
Miami City Commissioners and their underlings continue
to pull shady deals that make us all look bad to the
world. How about the latest deal to lease waterfront land
in Bicentennial Park to the Miami Sports & Exhibition
Authority.

Talk about the nerve! Former City Attorney Jorge
Fernandez, who sued the city in a bid to receive a near
$275,000 severance package despite being busted over
misuse of his expense account. Many think he should go
to jail.

Miami Beach police have reported 130 arrests during
the Urban Beach Weekend, but most accounts say that the
'Goodwill Ambassadors' a group of Black Miami, Miami
Beach and Miami-Dade County government employees -
who served as 'liaisons' for visitors as well as police, was
the key to an enjoyable weekend.

living member present.
A large number of dedicated alumni members
and friends of the Overtown school were on
hand for the beginning of the 50th Reunion
Celebration that culminates on July 12-15
with a trip to Las Vegas.
Maude Newbold presided over the program
and Rev. Shedrick Gilbert, William Thompson
and Leotha Sands-Harrell gave class
reflections. Greeting were extended from

Evelyn Langlieb Greer, School
Board Member.
The board also voted
Thursday to reduce the school
board attorney's office budget
by 19 percent and funding
to schools by $23.4 million
in 2008-09. The measure
removed the position as


second media specialist in
high schools throughout
the district, and the third
media specialist and library
specialist in middle and high
schools. They also reduced
extra-curricular spending in
middle and high schools by 10
percent, saving an estimated
$1 million.
"There is nothing we can
cut that will not cut people's


salaries. We are required by
State law to adopt a balanced
budget no borrowing like the
federal government and this
meeting just postponed the
pain. I felt that it was more
responsible to give people
notice and time to find new
jobs or make arrangements,
but emotions prevailed over
reality," said Evelyn Langlieb
Greer, School Board Member.

Do you feel that Carlos Alvarez has been a good mayor

for Miami-Dade and should he be reelected?


KEVIN SANDS, 47
City of Miami employee, Miami

Too many I
Hispanics m
are taking
over. They
are pushing
minorities out
of the way.
Whites are
also standing
in the background. Things
are getting worse. Personally,
I would prefer a Caucasian or
a Black person as mayor of
Miami- Dade.

TODD FITZGERALD-COLE, 43
Social Worker, Liberty City

People might ,
call me a
traitor or an
Uncle Tom but
I think that
Mayor Alvarez
is doing a good
job. I don't
think that I
can do a better job myself. He
is doing the best he can with
the little resources that he has
available to him. If another


African-American is willing
to step up and taken on the
position as Mayor then okay but
I feel that he is the right mayor
at this time.

TIFFANIE EDWARDS, 23
LPN, Miami

If he's
not doing
anything,
why should
we re-elect
him? People -
have needs K
that need to
be met in this -
community.

JENELLE MORLEY, 44
Business Owner, Liberty City

The Cubans
get everything
out of Mayor
Alvarez, what
has he done
in the Black
community?
If he is not
responsible
for restructuring the" Miami-
Dade schools then we need to

she also wrote about history.
"I am running for all those
women in their 90s who've told
me they were born before women
could vote, and they want to live
to see a woman in the White
House. For all the women who
are energized for the first time,
and voting for the first time. For
the little girls -- and little boys --


whose parents
lift them onto

As the first female candidate in
this position; I believe I have
a responsibility to finish this
race."


elect the person who decided to
reconstruct the various Miami-
Dade schools.


BARBARA, 45
Miami-Dade School Employee, Liberty City


We need
to choose
someone else
for mayor or
the Spanish i

a mayor that

ED SULLIVAN,
59
Retired, Miami


I am ready to
leave Miami. I
wish someone
had told me
that Miami
was going to end up like this.
Mayor Alvarez has done nothing
for Miami. There is nothing left
in this city for Black people.

9A THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 28-JUNE 3, 2008


BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


Baptist Ministers Council Meets With Carlos J. Martinez,


Miami-Dade Public Defender Elect


Carlos J. Martinez, Miami-Dade
Public Defender Elect & President Gaston Smith


Carlos Martinez, State Representative Dorothy Bendross-Mindingall
and President Gaston Smith


The Baptist Ministers Council of
Greater Miami and Vicinity, Inc.
sponsored a Pastoral Roundtable
Breakfast at Friendship Missionary
Baptist Church and had as a Special(
Guest, Carlos J. Martinez, Miami-
Dade Public Defender Elect. This
effort was spear-headed by Council
President, Reverend Dr. Gaston E.
Smith who also serves as Senior
Pastor of Friendship Missionary


Baptist Church.


There were


approximately 40 local Pastors and
other community leaders who were
present as Mr. Martinez shared
his, plans for improving the Public
Defender's office. Those Pastors and
community leaders also were given
the opportunity to ask questions of
Mr. Martinez with regard to some
of their concerns with the Public
Defenders Office.
The meeting was a great success
as we were able to have a meeting of


the minds between the community
and the public defender's office.
The community is always going to
reap the benefits in a profound way
whenever leaders from the public
sector and private sector begin to
work towards a common goal.
One very positive outcome from
the meeting was that the meeting
attendees were afforded an
opportunity to hear first hand from
Mr. Martinez, which allowed them


to discover that he, was definitely a
man of integrity. All in all, everyone
from both sides of the gathering left
with a positive perception of what
can be expected from the public
defenders office in the future.
The Baptist Ministers Council of
Greater Miami and Vicinity, Inc.
meets every Wednesday at 10 a.m.
at Jordan Grove Missionary Baptist
Church which is located at 5946
NW 12th Avenue.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


SEMITI MAIME MAY 28-JUNE 5 2 8


BL I2IL TmH MIV I Il.J, MimU IufnL. E ,


Why did this happen to me?


I was speaking to a friend
the other day that has been
having some serious marital
problems the past few months.
Understandably, she has been
very distraught, and during our
conversation, she expressed a
multitude of emotions hurt,
anger, despair, confusion and
humiliation. The separation has
left her financially destitute, and
the daughter that she shares
with -her husband also is hurt
and confused. My friend asked


me a question that I have heard
many times, and I am sure that
many of you have been asked
as well -"why did this happen
to me? Why did God do this to
me?"
I felt such an overwhelming
sense of compassion for my
friend. It was not just because
she was my friend, but because
she was a soul who was deeply
in pain. I told her that God is
not responsible for the decisions
of man. He does not force man


to act a certain way. We were
all created with a free will. God,
who is mighty and able to do
anything that He chooses, did
not even intervene in Adam and
Eve's choice to disobey Him and
listen to the lies of the enemy.
He allowed them, as He still does
today, to operate in their own
free will. We are responsible for
our own decisions, both good
and bad.
God did not force my friends'
husband make the decisions that
He made to end his' marriage.
God did not make him act
horribly to his wife and child,
nor make my friend respond in
the way that she did. They each
made their own decisions to act
as they did, but God does allow
things to happen for reasons of
His own. I told my friend that


we should never think that we
will not be subject to trials and
tribulations no matter how
strong we are in the Lord. In
fact, in his letter to the Church,
the Apostle Peter wrote in I Peter
4:12 19, that we should expect
these things to happen to us.
I also told my friend that this
particular trial did something
that her luxurious lifestyle and
extravagant living had not done
for her it brought her closer to
Jesus Christ. She did not have
a relationship with Him prior to
the separation. Oh, she spoke
about God occasionally, and
admitted that she believed that
He did exist (so do satan and
his demons, by the way), but
she never expressed a desire to
become close to Him, or to serve
and worship Him. But she, like


so many others, knew Who to cry
out to when the going got tough.
What is so sad and unfortunate
is that we wait until we are in
dire consequences to call out to
a loving and merciful God Who
wants to be a part of every thing
that concerns us good or bad.
This difficult situation also
gave my friend a chance to take a
good look at her life, and herself.
Are there things that are not
quite pleasing to a righteous
God? Are there changes that
need to take place in her life?
Not changes to please man,
but to please God. One thing
about losing everything is that
it gives you an opportunity to
start over just you and the-
'Lord. There is no one to take
credit for your success, or scorn
you because of your failures. It

is an opportunity to start life
anew and afresh with Jesus as
the guide each and every st ep
of the way.
I am not even hinting that
God wants bad and devastating
events to happen in your life so
that you can run to Him. I am
saying that we' live in a wicked
and perverse world, and at some
point, we will all suffer trials
and tribulations. I am saying
that we can use this opportunity
to become intimate, or renew
a relationship, with Jesus
Christ, our Savior. I am also
saying that this also presents
a wonderful expression of faith
and encouragement when we
can turn to someone else and
help to pull them out of their sad
state when you testify as to how
great and merciful is our God.

year-after-year the second-
hand recognition we label as
Father's Day. Granted, Mother's
Day is not an easy act to follow
which is all the more reason
why families need to put more
planning and creativity into
Father's Day. Fathers usually
do not speak out about this
injustice because they do not
want to deny their mothers,
their sisters, aunts and wives
the honor they are deserving
of on Mother's Day. Therefore,
the burden is on the children to
ensure the fathers in their lives
are properly recognized. After
all, it took an egg and a sperm
to get you here. As great as Mom
is, she had some help creating
you. Are you grateful for the life
that has been given to you? If
so, honor the two people that
God chose to give you that life.
The first commandment with
a promise is Exodus 20:12...
Honour thy father and thy
mother that thy days may be
long upon the land which the
Lord thy God giveth thee. Study
this scripture out and meditate
on it and see where the Spirit
leads you.
Ceramic ashtrays, ties and
socks were very sentimental
gifts to your father when you
were in grade school. You
are older now and have more
resources and you can afford to
do better. Think about the list
you produced on your birthday
and at Christmas. Some of us
literally asked for the world and
didn't give a second thought as
to how our parents got it. Would
you have been happy to receive
a slinky or building blocks year

The first step is


always the hardest


Sylvia Mitchell-Sanders
Miami Times Writer
... es. ..e The year 2008 was crowned the year of
new beginnings. This slogan inspired many
of us to take inventory of our eating habits
and sedentary lifestyles. Just looking at how
much work had to be done caused some of
us to settle deeper into our recliners and ask
the question... "What's the use? I've already
- i g bl bI a 'w Iwasted too much time so why bother?"
Negative affirmations are what got us into this
o l a l shape and we need to capture and discipline
those thoughts. Replace negative thought
Sa -a...... patterns with: I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me; I am well able
to overcome. Remember, the first step is always
the hardest but you have the victory in Christ
Jesus.
It is never too late to make a new beginning;
0 each morning is filled with brand new mercies
and opportunities to start over. Each morning
is our new beginning. God still loves us in
the morning even after what we did the night
before. God's mercies do not run out or come
to an end (for where sin abounded, grace
abounded all the more). Morning is the time
of day that we should make the most use
of. We are fresh and well rested from a good
night's sleep, so get up earl'. You've heard
that the early bird gets the worm, well that
doesn't happen if 3 ou sleep until 10'O'clock.
....- 2Corinthians 6:2 is a reminder that today,


We are fresh and well rested from a good

night's sleep, so get up early. You've heard
that the early bird gets the worm, well that
doesn't happen if you sleep until 10 o'clock.
right now, is the acceptable time. We are
149 days into the New Year with 217 days
remaining. I don't know when you gave up
on your New Year's commitment and stopped
exercising, but you can begin again. There's
no shame in that. Renewing our minds can
be a lifetime process; a series of stop-and-go;
a series of taking one step forward then one
step back until we get it settled in our spirit
that we're going to really change and then it
is reflected on the outside as well as on the
inside. With the power of Jesus in your life all
things can become new and you can break
through from the bondage of old things that
are sucking the life right out of you. God is
not constrained by time it does not have to
be January 1st for Him to start a new thing in
you.
A brisk 30-minute walk will begin to reap
compounded benefits in your life. The benefits
of walking do not end when you take off
your sneakers. Frequent walkers are more
energetic, agile, have greater coordination and

IFOOTILOOSIE AN ID FANCY IFIRIEJE


Sylvia Mitchell-Sanders
Miami Times Writer
With summer almost here, our footwear is
an important part of our total look. The best
looking pair of sandals loses their appeal if
the feet in the shoes are poorly kept. During
the cooler months our ugly little secrets are
safely tucked away in socks, boots, and cozy
house shoes. It is now time for the pool and
beaches and we realize how much our feet were
neglected. Following are a few pedicure safety
observations that you should be aware of as
you get your feet back into shape.
Eyeball the salon before you commit to the
service.
In general, is the establishment clean and
orderly? A salon should be well lighted, shining
and inviting. The floors should not be cluttered

and there should be adequate space between
technician work stations. Look at the faces of
the customers that are being served. Do they
appear to be satisfied and relaxed or does it
appear they are frustrated from waiting. Are
the technicians' professional and do they speak
your language just in case you have a question.
Just as you would check the bathroom in
a restaurant, do the same in a salon. The
condition of the bathroom can speak volumes
about the personal habits of management and
employees. Equipment, towels, and instruments
should be disinfected; while items that cannot


be disinfected should be disposed of after each
client.
Are licenses and inspection reports posted?
Nail technicians are specialists in the practice
of cosmetology and are required to be licensed
under Chapter 477 of The Florida Regulation
of Professions and Occupations Cosmetology.
Consumers place their health at risk by
allowing a friend to administer their pedicure.
Licensed technicians are trained to look over
and check your feet and ask health questions
before beginning the service. Diabetics, as a
rule, should see their Podiatrist for all required
service to their feet since this population tends
to have poor circulation and sensation in their
legs and feet. Should they receive a knick or
wound during a pedicure they would heal slower
and any minor cut, irritation or wound can

three weeks remaining before
Father's Day. Take this time to
study your Dad. What does he
like to do, what sports does he
like, what does he read, what
is his profession, how does
he relax, what is his clothing
style, what kind of music does
he enjoy. Fathers Day is not
as commercialized as Mothers
Day but that does not deter you
from celebrating and honoring
your father.
We do not have to take our cue
from the market place or society
in order to know what we need to
do. Especially in our community,
there is a need to support, uplift
and encourage' all our brothers.
In the 21st century, all homes


do not have the traditional
family structure. Some of us are
in blended families. Whatever
the case may be, honor the
father figure in your life
whether that is a stepfather,
uncle, big brother, godfather,
etc. And, Moms, be gracious
enough to allow your children
the opportunity to express
their love and affection to
their father without making
the child feel guilty for doing
so.
This is not a contest between
mothers and fathers. When
children are taught to honor
their earthly parents they are
more receptive to honoring
and obeying their heavenly
father. Purpose in your heart
to make this an exceptional
Fathers Day.

Proper foot care crucial to diabetics

result in very serious problems
for diabetics.
Inspections are an important
business standard. In
salons or any other business
establishment, a successful
inspection indicates that the
facility has met the strict
requirements of a monitoring
authority that conforms to
various local, state, and federal
laws. Inspections help to ensure
the safety of the consumer.
Get ready to put your best
foot forward this summer and


when old man winter returns
take better care of your feet
by keeping them moisturized
because the winter weather and
taking hot baths and showers
deplete the skin's natural oils.
Exfoliate the old skin cells
away so that new skin cells can
come to the surface. Just like
the tires on our car, our feet
take a beating. A peacock is a
very beautiful creature with its
colorful and spectacular array
of feathers but because it has
ugly feet the rest of its beauty
is lost. Your feet, this summer,
can be the highlight of your
wardrobe.

the benefits walking has on
controlling cholesterol, blood
pressure, and high blood sugar.
Another benefit of walking
will be the new circle of friends
established as you come to know
people that walk the same path
as you do and these friends can
operate as a support system so
you don't have to walk alone or
they can call if you find yourself
backsliding. Our bodies were
designed to be active. After all,


God placed Adam in the Garden
of Eden to dress it and to keep it
- tilling and cultivating required,
physical activity. He didn't place
us on a couch and put a remote
in our hands but that's where
many of us have ended up.
2Corinthians 6:2 proclaims that
"now is the day of salvation."
Our life is our day and we can
only live it one day at a time, so
let's get busy and not waste any
of our day time.

In Your Life
For only $65, you may let Dad and the world know how much you love, respect and appreciate him!
You may also send Fathers Day greetings to your grandpa, brother, godfather, uncle
.. anyone who's like a father to you. Remember to bring in your color photograph.

Friends were sadden to
hear of the death of Lucille
Dorsett-Glass, one of the
star Basketball players for
Dorsey High School along
with Marian Pinder, and


at Ebenezer United Methodist
Church.
Minister Dr. Green
transformed the atmosphere
into an Oprah Winfry television
show with a roving camera and
Dr. Capers coming in on cue in
a stunning suit with a hat to
compliment her appearance.
This was preceded by William
0. Francis, emcee, who came
in from the back of the church
announcing the event, while Dr.
Richard J. Strachan played a
fanfare to fill the auditorium,
Alice Hanna, Betty Bullard,
and Rena Green presented
everyone with a rose stem.
The scene then focused on
the show host who cued in
the honoree, while The Tribute
was played and Dr. Capers
took her seat on the dais and
Alvin Bullard opened with a
prayer and Francis introduced
the MDC Honor Guard who
presented colors, followed
by Pernella Burke reading
a Proclamation from Mayor
Carlos Alvarez declaring May
17 as Dr. Capers Day.
Dr. Green continued the
telecast by allowing people from
the audience to ask questions of
the honoree and she responded
in a shy manner, but she was
articulate in her delivery. A call
came in which was amplified
to the audience from Rebecca
White, author, Spiritual
Metamorphose in Washington
D.C. The technical hook-up
brought a huge applause from
the excited audience.
More excitement came
from other participants, the
incomparable David Smith,
who sang the honoree's favorite
hymn: Amazing Grace in
preparation for the Life of Pastor
Capers. Patricia Bryant sang
and Norma Sank appeared
holding Baby Capers, followed
by Zabhrya Tillman, Adrian
Thomas, and Arlene Beckon
closing out with a brief life of
the honoree preparing a chart.

8D THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 28-JUNE 3, 2008 BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


Salon introduces innovative hair treatment


If you thought cocktails
were only good for drinking,
guess again. Earlier
this month, Mahaqni
Sophisticated Looks
introduced the Mahaqni
Coctail, an innovative new
hair treatment composed
entirely of natural products
to help treat and restore
damaged hair.
Developed by Mahaqni
Founder Felicia Brown,
the coctails are just one
component of the "Fight
Against Hair Loss" campaign
launched by Mahaqni SL
in an effort to curb the
staggering epidemic that
over 20 million women


h ~


I hrt~ L.~I ~


across the country suffer
from.
"There are so many
women who are losing their
hair daily and don't know
what to do about it. I think
it's time we took control and
got a grip on how to save
our hair. That's how I came
up with the coctails," Brown
remarked.
Brown also said the
coctails are beneficial
to women of all colors
and creeds because each
treatment is custom brewed
in the salon to fit the client's
particular need right before
their eyes.
What's more is, because

the ingredients consist
entirely of all natural
fruits, vegetables, oils, and
greases, customers can get
recipes for the coctails to
make and apply at home.
The only appliance they'll
need is a blender.
"Any woman that's
interested in reversing or
preventing hair loss should
use our coctails. They're
not just a gimmick, they
really work. It's a way to
experience the beauty of
natural hair growth," Brown
promised.
But you don't have to
take her word for it. On
Friday, May 23rd, Brown


.. ?~ ~


and her staff gave out free
coctails to demonstrate the
treatment's effectiveness at
the Mahaqni Salon located
at 3503 NE 2nd Avenue in
Miami.
As for those who missed it
this time around, they will
be holding similar events in
the future. They invite those
who are curious to come
out and have a cocktail with
them, promising that it will
be like nothing your hair
has ever tasted before.
For more information
about Mahaqni SL and
their new cocktail treatment,
please call Felicia Brown at
