Congressman Kendrick B.
Meek (D-FL), Congresswoman
Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY) and
Congresswoman Donna F.
Edwards (D-MD) held a press
conference at Miami Execu-
tive Aviation at the Opa-locka
Airport on Saturday following
their visit to Haiti.
Meek led this congressional
delegation trip as they tray-


eled to devastated parts in the
island of Haiti. Haiti has been
hit by four consecutive hurri-
canes: Fay, Gustav, Hanna and
Ike within the past five weeks,
killing over 500 people and
leaving thousands displaced.
"All of us need to ban togeth-
er to help Haiti," said City of
Miami Commissioner Michelle
Spence-Jones.
Meek described Haiti's dev-
astation as the epitome of Hur-
ricane Katrina, a 2005 storm


that ripped through the Gulf
Coast killing over 1,800 people
and leaving thousands home-
less.
While in Haiti, the group
toured the streets of Gonaives
where several bridges had col-
lapsed, roads washed out and
the streets are filled with mud.
"People are slowly recovering
and living in shelters. Schools
remain closed until October 6,"
said Meek.

School board wins, Crew is out


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com

On Friday, former science
teacher at Miami Jackson Se-
nior High, Alberto Carvalho,
accepted the position as Mi-
ami-Dade Superintendent of,
schools. A position previously
held by Dr. Rudy Crew. Friday
also marked Crew's last day
on the job so Miami-Dade says
farewell.

HOLLOWAY SAYS KEEP CREW
School board member Dr.
Wilbert "Tee" Holloway said
that he was in favor of keep-
ing Crew as superintendent.
Crew's performance as a su-
perintendent, Holloway says,
"I would give him an A. My
grading would be based on
what he was brought here to
do which was address the ed-
ucational problems affecting


the children in Miami-Dade.
Crew reached a point in which
he was clearly received as a
threat of challenge, as an in-
dividual rather than
an educator. 7The
separation was not
the result of educa-
tional leadership."
Holloway insisted
that he did want
Crew for his leader-
ship in the school
system. He felt that
Crew had a desire
to focus on the comrn- RUDY
munity and develop Former SuF
relationships with of S&
the parents of the
students in Miami-Dade. Hol-
loway says that the board is
moving forward with new lead-
ership and he expects the new
superintendent to be impartial
and focused on the opportuni-
ties for the board to grow. He

believes that the lasting result
should be that the children in
Miami-Dade benefit. Overall,
this is a learning experience
says Holloway but
there will be a shift
when it comes to vot-
ing on the board.
Last week, after
months of heated de-
bates, school board
members Chairman
Agustin Barrera, Per-
la Tabares Hantman,
Solomon Stinson,
;REW Martin Karp and Hol-
rintendent loway voted to buy

Rev. Douglas Cook celebrates 40th anniversary


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com

Rev. Douglas Cook has
come a long way since his
arrival to Miami, at 17, and
being a mechanic for the
railroad station. Today, Cook
is celebrating 40 years of
preaching at Jordan Groove
Missionary Baptist Church in,
Liberty City.
"He is probably the nicest
gentlemen that I have ever
met. He has never been in the
limelight. He was always in

there to show his support,"
said Bishop Victor T. Curry of
New Birth Baptist Cathedral of
Faith International. Curry, who
has known Cook since 1984,
remembers when his ministry
was at Miami Northwestern
Senior High that it was Cook
who opened his doors and
allowed him to use his facility
to host events.

Palin a contrast in -
contradictions
The Republicans finally allowed Palin to face an """
interviewer, Charlie Gibson of ABC. She was frank
and honest in a very political way. Meaning, she did not answer,
could not answer or would not give a straight answer. She believes
in less government spending, less taxes and cutting government
waste. She lives her beliefs. She cut personal property taxes, cut
business taxes, but raised the sales tax by 2%.
She believes in no earmarks. She is a Washington outsider, not tied
to Lobbyist. As Mayor of Wasilla, she paid $30,000 to a Washington
Lobbyist, because "Alaska is far away from Washington." She does
not believe in earmarks, but as Governor, she got $155 million in
earmarks, approximately $231 per person. In contrast, Illinois
received only $22 per person.
Her fiscal policies remind me of President Bush. He entered
the government with a government surplus and strong economy.
He cut some taxes. He is leaving with a recession turning into a
depression and a huge deficit. Sarah Palin entered Wasilla, a debt ,
free City. She cut some taxes, raised some taxes and in- her wake
Wasilla has millions in debt.A
ALAN GREENSPAN PREDICTS

Lynch is bought in a fire sale and several major banks are tottering.

Monetary Fund for an assessment. Alan Greenspan predicts that
there is a 50% chance of us getting a recession. Is he senile?
Please shake him up from his rocking chair and tell him that we
are in a recession and facing a financial crisis like 1929's Great
Depression.
Mr. Greenspan was lauded for his great control of the economy.
But what most people don't realize is that it was his lack of control
over the housing market that caused our financial melt down. The
Federal Reserve could have regulated the mortgage industry and
barred interest only loans, variable loans and the other gimmicks
that got people in trouble. Greenspan should have recognized that
somebody making $11 per hour could not afford a $250,000 house
that was once worth only $80,000. As an Indian Finance Minister
stated on the U.S., even a child knows that you do not lend money
to people who cannot afford to pay it back. Mr. Greenspan's
policies or lack of policies caused our financial meltdown.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


4A THE MIAMI TIMES, SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2008


Rev. Cook says that he


is losing the battle for


youth in the church


COOK
continued from 1A

the word of God since the age
of 15, when he gave his life to
the Lord in his hometown of
Sylvania, Georgia. He is the
tenth boy of a family of seven-
teen children.
Besides ministering the word
behind the pulpit every Sun-
day, Cook distribute meals
on Wednesdays throughout
the community, participates
in the Street Ministry every
Friday and Saturday from 10
p.m. to 3 a.m., where he and
church members witness to
residents on the streets. And,
on every other Sunday of the
month, Cook and the church
choir walk down 59 Street,
between 12 and 14 avenues,
singing and preaching to resi-
dents on the street.
"My mission is to teach
God's work and return peo-
ple back to the church," said
Cook.
Certainly the times have
changed for Cook. One of his
greatest challenges is holding
the church together. He says
that he has to keep his con-
gregation moving in the right
direction, with his mission
being to save souls.
In addition to that, Cook


says that parents have lost
control of their children, this
has caused many young peo-
ple to fall prey to the world-
ly influences such as drugs,
gang violence, and sex. "Young
people have faded away from
the congregation." The youth
now consist of 35-40 teenag-
ers, in a church that at one
time was filled with young
people. Regardless, he con-
tinues to mentor the young
people that are there with
God's principles.
Cook advises preachers to,
"Be fun and steadfast in the
word of God. Be about God's
business and not letting any-
one change the agenda that
God has placed for them."
His congregation of 500
members consist of people
from Brownsville, Miami Gar-
dens, Opa-locka, North Mi-
ami, Overtown and even Bro-
ward County. Cook's services
usually range from one to two
hours depending on however
God desires to move.
Even through the economic
crisis with people losing their
homes and the increase of
gas prices, Cook says that his
members are not abandoning
their faith. According to Cook,
prayer service and bible study
has doubled because people


are realizing that they need
God more than ever.
Throughout the years, Cook
has performed baptisms, wed-
dings, and funeral services
for members in his congrega-
tion. "I am getting to the place
where I am a little bit tired of


preaching. It is hard because
I love to do it so much." .
Bishop Curry will host an
anniversary service on Sep-
tember 19 at the New Birth
Baptist Cathedral of Faith In-
ternational, in honor of Rev.
Douglas Cook.


Members of Congress return from their visit to Haiti


HAITI
continued from 1A

leaders late Saturday that before
the hurricanes hit, the island
was working on its infrastruc-
ture. Now, the country needs
food and water. She describes
the island as a "humanitarian
disaster" and predicts that the
country will soon face a food
shortage. With collapsed bridges
and flooded streets, access to
desolate areas on the island are
very hard to reach. Earlier this
year, Haiti faced a food crisis
that led many of the people to
make a meal out of mud which
was called mud pies.
"I am very concerned that
there will be an uprising over
food. Plantains have gone up 40
percent and rice has increased
by 50 percent," said Meek.
Clarke also said that kids will
be needing uniforms to go back
to school because most of their


Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-MD) and Con-
gressman Kendrick Meek (D-FL) meet with Haiti's Prime Minister Michele Pierre-Louis to

clothes were swept away in the
storm.
The fight for Temporary Pro-
tected Status (TPS) for Haiti
continued because Haiti is un-
able to take anymore people on
the island, says Meek. The TPS
allows Haitian immigrants who
are already in the United States


'to stay and work for a limited
time. There is an estimated
275,170 Haitians who are cur-
rently residing in South Florida.
With the flooding and rivers
filled with clay and dead ani-
mals, Miami-Dade Commission-
er Barbara Jordan addressed
her concerns for the children in


Do you feel that ex-felons should be given a second chance
to become productive citizens as it relates to restoring their
voting rights and getting a job?


DON RUFF, 70
Retired, Miami

I have been
around for a
very long time.
I think that
some of the ex-
felons deserve
a second
chance and
some of them
don't. You have a lot of people
who leave prison with the same
mentality to commit the same
crime and get locked up again.
The older ones get a little wiser
while incarcerated and seek
change, after they are released,
but the younger ones seem to
get caught up in the same old
mess.

DAJUAN LEE, 28
Maintenance Man, Overtown

I think that
ex-felons do
deserve a
second chance.
Everyone was
wondering
why the voter
turnout was
so low in the
primary election. Well, a lot of
people could not vote because
they had previously been in
prison. It is hard for people who
are trying to change. People make
mistakes but everyone holds the


mistakes on their heads. I don't
want to work at Burger King but
I have no choice because of my
background.

WILLIAM W. COLLINS, 64
Retired, Liberty City

If they have
paid for their
mistakes then
why shouldn't
they be given
a second
chance?
Everyone
m a k e s
mistakes but it shouldn't be
a lifetime sentence. Human
rights should never be taken
away from anyone. Ex-felons
should be educated on how
to stay out of jail. Those who
continue doing the same things
after rehabilitation then the
system should create some type
of alternative program to help
them get on the right path.

TRENT TELLFOR, 38
Entrepreneur, Miami Lakes

I am an ex-
felon and a
changedman.
I own my own
business.
I decided
to change
when I got
out of prison


realizing that I had a family with
kids so I could not go back to my
old ways. I wanted a better life
for myself so I believe that ex-
felons deserve a second chance.


TINA EDWARDS, 22
Entrepreneur, Miami Lakes

Everybody ;

They paid
their debt to

that they can

ARNETTE O'NEIL, 36
Disabled, Liberty City


Ex-felons -
deserve a
second chance
especially
thosethatwent
out and made -
one mistake.
God gave us a
second chance
and sent his
son, Jesus. I don't think that
rehabilitation is working in our
prisons. The government should
spend more money educating
felons instead of storing them in
warehouses.


Haiti and their health in light of
the contaminated waters. Clarke
assured Jordan that 80 percent
of the children have been vacci-
nated for measles. Hygiene and
medical supplies are being air
dropped in many of the needed
areas.
Edwards and Clarke both say
that they have a huge number of
Haitians that make up the pop-
ulation in their districts so this
crisis is very important to them.
"The importance of giving re-
lief to this country is right now.
I am looking forward to getting
back to Washington. Our job is
to talk to our colleagues and let
them know the damage that we
were able to survey during our
visit to Haiti. We know that there
is a lot that needs to be done,"
said Congresswoman Edwards.
"Enough letters have been
written and enough speeches
have been given. Now is the time
[to act]," said Meek.


School boss departs,


new leadership arrives


CREW
continued from 1A

health and disability benefits
for two years.
Crew came to Miami in 2004
to lead the nation's fourth larg-
est school district. During this
time, Crew was able to trans-
form the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test (FCAT)
scores and increase more "A"
performing schools throughout
the district. This year, he was,
named as 2008 National Super-
intendent of the Year.

ANA RIVAS LOGAN SAYS
PART WITH CREW
Logan, who often criticized
Crew for the overspending of
the district funds, said it was
time to part ways with him.
A supporter of Crew, Hollo-
way said that Crew's downfall
as a superintendent was his
failure to develop relationships
with the people who were con-
tinually "threatening him." He
understood that they were un-
able to reach an agreement as
a board but he wonders why
another road was not taken in-
stead of Crew's exit.

MARTA PEREZ SAYS
BUDGET CRISIS NOT
CREW'S FAULT
Perez says that Crew should
not have spent money that the
board did not have and his lack
of honesty with the board was
a problem. She was not in favor
of keeping Crew as superinten-
dent but she does not blame
the budget woes on Crew.
"When it comes to the budget
crisis, the board takes a good
part of the blame. The board
said yes to everything that
Crew said. The board should
have been. responsible for do-
ing their homework and saying
yes, to the things that could
have been affordable, and no,
to the things that we could not
afford."
"What we have seen in the
last couple months are pro-
grams that affect our students
are being cut. When the school
coughs, the county gets a cold.
What we do with our employees
impact the county," said Perez.
"I am ready for a fresh start but
I am very concerned about the
way the new superintendent
was chosen. There should have


been an open process with all
the candidates who met the
qualifications for the superin-
tendent position."
Karen Aronowitz, president
of United Teachers of Dade
(UTD), says that she was not
anticipating Crew's depar-
ture. Throughout the summer
months, UTD and the school
board held several meetings
to come to a compromise after
Miami-Dade teachers were de-
nied their promised raises but
no solution was made between
the two parties. Frustrated
with the school board's lack of
cooperation, UTD requested to
bring in a special magistrate
who would offer a resolution
to their dilemma. UTD and the
school board were scheduled
to meet Monday afternoon but
the school district postpone the
meeting. Both parties will meet
on Monday, November 3.
Through it all, Aronowitz
does not place the blame of
the failed teacher's raises on
Crew's lap because she says
that she signed a contract with
the school board and her total
commitment has been making
sure that the teacher's con-
tracts are being recognized.

ATTORNEY H.T. SMITH SAYS
"Dr. [Rudy] Crew was recruit-
ed to be an innovated leader. He
did not come to Miami to stay.
Test scores have increased.
The Parent Academy is now a
nationwide program. The fair-
minded people of Miami-Dade
will remember Crew's legacy
was powerful and made a posi-
tive difference into the lives of
the children in the schools,"
said Attorney H.T. Smith, who
is currently representing Crew.
Smith says that job offers are
coming in for Crew and he is
currently talking to various
employers.

SOLOMON E. STINSON
SAYS NOTHING
The Miami Times attempted to
contact school board member
Solomon E. Stinson repeatedly,
but he never returned any of
our calls.

MOVING FORWARD
Today our children's educa-
tional future is in the hands of
our new Miami-Dade School Su-
perintendent Alberto Cavalho.

to consider, which targeted ev-
erything other than cutting
of jobs and programs. "No cuts
in the school level." Cavalho
says that he will be looking at
cutting overtime hours and the
purchase of new equipment
I throughout the district but
he is preparing for November
1o when Tallahassee may cut an
o additional 30 to 80 million dol-
lars.
With the release of the 2008
school grades this summer,
b' community leaders were con-
' cerned with the directional
plan on how to improve many
of the area schools: Miami
Central Senior High, Miami
Norland Senior High, Miami
Carol City High, North Miami
Senior High and Miami Edison
High, who all consistently re-
ceive F's.
Cavalho said that he would
not abandon the children in
the Black community. Al-
though the grades are im-
portant, he said that he does
not want the performance
,, grades to become a "scarlet
,letter" to the low-performing
schools. Cavalho says that the


Seated L-R, Rev. Vincent Davis, pastor of New Providence, vice president of Baptist Minister
Council, Miami-Dade Superintendent of Schools, Alberto Cavalho, Rev. Gaston Smith, Rep.
Dorothy Bendross-Mindingall and Rev. Alphonso Jackson.


school year has begun so he
will be monitoring the schools
who are not low-performing
schools throughout the year.
He informed the leaders the
he would address the failing
schools to the school board at
the special board meeting on
Wednesday.
Sitting in a room filled with
pastors, Cavalho associates
the classroom with the church
saying that those are two plac-
es in which the community
unites. "The zone [schooling] is
gone but the children are still
in the zone. My work will begin
in the school and end in the


school. Public education is the
closest you can get to doing
God's work," said Cavalho.
"When they took religion out
of school, they forgot to put
something in its place as a
moral compass," said Caval-
ho. He said that he would re-
search the board rules to see if
a Bible elective could be put in
Miami-Dade schools.
Rep. Dorothy Bendross-
Mindingall (D-FL 109) asked
Cavalho if he would be inter-
ested in participating in the
Magic City Children's Zone
that was signed into law by
Governor Charlie Crist in


June. A project designed to
help the children in the inner
city, a pilot to the successful
Harlem Children's Zone which
provided educational, cultural
and social programs for un-
privileged children.
Cavalho says that he will be
traveling to Haiti on next week
to witness the devastation left
from the storms. "Giving love
abroad needs to be matched
with the love of the commu-
nity."
He also agreed to hold quar-
terly meetings with communi-
ty leaders in the offices of The
Miami Times.


Holidays Bridge Club meets in Raleigh


The Miami Holidays spent
an exiting weekend in Raleigh,
North Carolina at the 38th
Holidays, Inc. National Bridge
Club Annual Concourse. The
theme "Nothing could be finer
than to be in Carolina" suited
the fun filled weekend which
kicked off with a "pig out" feast
consisting of chipped pork,
pulled pork, fried fish, chicken
and a variety of other soul
dishes.
Holiday Carolyn Blake made
her debut as a member of the
executive board as national
treasurer of the Holidays, Inc.
The traditional luncheon gave
way to the ladies dressing in their
beautiful outfits which include
hats, bags, and gloves. The
guest speaker was Dr. Dainne
Broardly Suber, president of
St. Augustine's College. We
all participated in the bridge
tournament, unfortunately, no
one from the Miami Holidays
won a top prize. However,


Holiday Victoria Williams did
receive a recognition prize.
Some of the other activities
included a dinner dance,
social bridge and the farewell
breakfast. Prior to the breakfast,
a memorial service was held
in remembrance of Holidays
and Labordays (husbands
of Holidays) who died after
Concourse 2007 and prior to
this Concourse. Our own Jesse
McCrary was memorialized at
this service.
Sunday morning we were
anxious to get back to Miami
in anticipation of the upcoming
hurricanes. In attendance were
Carolyn Blake and Robert Blake;
Regina Frazier and Ronald
Frazier; Linda Kearson and Ivey
Kearson; Holiday Ruth Williams
and Richard Williams; and
Holidays Joan Floyd, Mattye
Jones, Margaret McCrary,
Shirley McKoy, Shelain Welters,
Victoria Williams and Vandra
Woolfolk.

County commissioners are
locked in a stalemate over
whether they should hire
someone new to run the day-
to-day operations of Broward
government or give the job to the
longtime deputy administrator.
Interviews with the three
finalists forcountyadministrator
Thursday did nothing to bridge
the divide that has been
developing for months. While
some commissioners argue
Bertha Henry would bring
stability because of her eight
years in the No. 2 post, others
say they want an outsider who
would bring new energy to
county government.
Henry's two rivals for the job
are Susanne Torriente, Miami-


Dade's chief assistant county
manager, and Lee Trotter, a
deputy county administrator
in Cleveland. Torriente
garnered the most attention
as an alternative to Henry, but
commissioners left Trotter in
the mix as well and plan to re-
interview the three next week.
Henry touted herself as a
skilled money manager who can
work through the cuts needed
because of property tax relief
and the declining real estate
market. She also said she has
tried to reinvigorate the county
staff during the year she has
spent as interim administrator
after Pam Brangaccio's abrupt
departure.
"The past couple years have


BERTHA HENRY
been tumultuous, and I think
what county government needs
most of all is to settle down
and be stable," Commissioner


Ilene Lieberman said in urging
Henry's selection.
Henry's critics on the
commission, including Mayor
Lois Wexler, said she has been
slow to respond to management
problems at Fort Lauderdale-
Hollywood International Airport
and to a series of critical
audits.
"I'd like to have someone who has
a sense of immediacy, someone
who everyone respects and brings
out people's best," Commissioner
John Rodstrom said.
Torriente has been the No.
2 person in Miami-Dade since
2003. Trotter has been the deputy
administrator for infrastructure
and development in Ohio's
Cuyahoga County since 1998.

Miami-Dade's Transit Cuts

Are Just Plain Cruel




















Miami-Dade residents are hurting, as our economy remains in a tail spin. And it's only
going to get worse for residents if County Manager George Burgess gets his way.
Hundreds of thousands of residents rely on the Miami-Dade transit system. But it's becoming a severe
hardship for many to get to and from work every day. George Burgess has made massive, devastating cuts
to our public transit system more than six million miles of bus routes, drastic reductions to Metrorail and
Metromover, and far fewer bus stops and shelters.
Worse, Burgess wants even more cuts.
The result will be devastating and cruel to workers who will have to wait even longer in the pouring
rain or broiling sun for a bus.

Contact County Manager George Burgess g
@. f 305-375-3601 or manager@miamidade.gov.


Deserve His Cruelty.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


1AR THF MIAMI TIMF SFPTFMRFR 17-723 7008


The Lord will rescue you


This week I will continue
sharing the story of Jonah and
the fish as told in the Book of
Jonah. We know that Jonah
was instructed by God to warn
the people of Nineveh about His
coming judgment. The people
of Nineveh were very cruel and
vicious. Jonah, however, re-
fused to obey God and ran from


him. He eventually landed in
the belly of a fish where he re-
pented of his disobedience, and
praised himself out of this situ-
ation.
God did not let him off the
hook. He gave him a second
chance to act in obedience. This
time Jonah obeyed the com-
mand of the Lord and warned


the people. This heathen nation
did what some Christians do
not always do when they hear
the Word of the Lord. They be-
lieved the prophet, and they re-
pented. The king declared that
everyone would repent. What
I want to point out is that the
king commanded that the peo-
ple pray earnestly.
He did not tell them to get to-
gether and have a little prayer
meeting, but to pray earnestly.
He also commanded them to
turn from their evil ways. This
is true repentance not just be-
ing sorry, but to repent means to
turn away to change. He even
commanded that the animals


wear sackcloth and ashes. He
was serious about this thing!
We know what happened next.
God heard their cries of repen-
tance. He saw that they did as
they said that they would, and
put away their evil ways. He
changed His mind, and did not
destroy this nation. What does
that mean to us? God is still a
God of mercy. God still forgives
us when we ask Him to do so.
I also want to share something
very important. Jonah ran be-
cause he did not want these
people to be saved. He wanted
them to be destroyed because
of their cruelty. Jonah did not
feel that they deserved God's


mercy. Do you know someone
like that? The older brother in
the parable of the Prodigal Son
was angry when his younger
brother returned home. He was
angry that though the younger
son spent all of his money, and
left the family, their father still
forgave his son, and took him
back in his position as an heir.
Today, there are many commit-
ted Christians who stand firm
when they are beat down and
beat up by the enemy. They
do not blame God or others for
their plight. They stay focused
on God's great love for them and
stand firm on His Word and His
promises.

There are others who sway
back and forth, praising God
one day, and angry with Him
the next. They leave the com-
fort of His loving arms to chase
worldly desires. When they are
lured into compromising situ-
ations, and get caught in the
traps of the enemy, then they
run back to God. God forgives
them, and blesses them, and
the one who has been faithful is
envious. I know that this hurts,
but trust God to know what is
best for each of us. Continue
to stay strong, faithful soldier.
Continue to make disciples and
show compassion. God has not
forgotten you either.

Pioneer Don

Haskins dies at 78

The Associated Press

The glow from Don Haskins'
greatest triumph was mostly a
memory when Disney decided
to take another look. Then came
the movie "Glory Road" and a
whole new generation learned
what Bob Knight already knew
about his old friend's career -
and legacy.
"Don got more out of his teams
and players than any coach who
has ever coached college bas-
ketball," Knight said.
Haskins, the Hall of Fame
coach credited with helping
break color barriers in college
sports in 1966 when he used
five black starters to win a na-
tional basketball title for Texas
Western, died Sunday. He was
78.
Dr. Dwayne Aboud, Haskins'
physician, told reporters Sun-
day that Haskins had been suf-
fering from congestive heart
failure and died at home about
4:30 p.m. He was surrounded
by friends and relatives, Aboud
said.

2C THE MIAMI TIMES, SEPTEMBER 17-23, 20081


Like Pro Player Stadium draw-
ing a record-breaking crowd
to witness the Miami Dolphins
playing the New York Jets, last
Sunday, the practice field at
Miami Northwestern High, last
Saturday, drew over 3000 par-
ents, former alumni band mem-
bers, band directors from West
Palm Beach, Broward and Dade
counties to witness the Florida
A & M Marching Rattlers warm-
up before playing the actual
half-time show on Sunday.
A display of orange and green
permeated the area as the four
chartered buses rolled on cam-
pus and the supporters jockeyed
for a close-up spot to revere in
the sound, musicianship, and
movement of the drills. Many
graduating seniors from Miami
Northwestern waited to audi-
tion to be accepted for the year
of 2009.
Dr. Julien White, head band
director, took to the mic and
thanked Mr. Bolden, band di-
rector for the Bulls for allowing
the practice session, along with
the introduction of Dr. Shelby
Chipman, assistant from Mi-
ami Central, Anthony Simons,
assistant from Miami Norland,
and Shelly James, while giv-
ing a shout out to Norman Cox,
alumni and former member of
the Marching 100 back in the
day.
One of the most excited par-
ents was Tayloria McPhee,
whose son, Darryl, is a fresh-
man in the FAMU band, while
others parents represented Brit-
ney Johnson, Lakay Johnson,
Phillip Farrar, Lorren Farrar,
Anthony Johnson, Howard
Smart and Annesha Johnson
that came from Miami Norland
under Simons.
Bolden boasted of his future
Rattlers, as Jehette Pierre,
Kyisha Penn, Glenda Latti-
more, Jordan Strapp, Randal
Louis and Antonio Smith,

and Raynal Sands, daughter

apple of her grandmother eyes).
May you both enjoy your reign
before you head off to college
next year. Janell Gilbert-Hall

tabulated the scores, Shara-

asked why she participated,
she replied "because I wanted
to have the same experiences

participants bragged about
Therefore, I practiced etiquette
skills, spoke eloquently and
being the winner, I can brag!"

The retired brothers showed
up enmass for the first meet-
ing after a three-month hiatus
and Baljean Smith, chairper-
son, asked them to practice si-

speak with permission from
the chair. They nodded their
approval and destroyed "si-
lence."
Since Elston Davis was
absent, Oscar Jesse accept-
ed the request to record the

Johnny Stepherson alluded
to the many brothers that died
during the summer, especially

BLACKS N1 UST CONTRoi- THEIR OWN DESTINY







BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


4C THE MIAMI TIMES, SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2008


Bold and sassy 'Judge Karen' brings daytime drama to court


There's a new court order with
the premiere of Sony Pictures
Television's nationally syndi-
cated court show, Judge Karen,
September 8. Judge Karen will
feature a dynamic judge who is
new to daytime television, and
it will introduce fresh and in-
novative elements never before
seen in the court genre.
Presiding over the new syn-
dicated TV show is Judge Kar-
enMills-Francis who is known
for her burgundy robe, feisty
personality, bright blonde hair
and compassionate heart. A
native of Miami, she is a razor-
sharp, no-nonsense jurist who
is smart and tough, yet sen-
sitive to all. Her priority is to
keep the courtroom experience
realistic as she uses her intel-
ligence, determination, and
sense of humor to deliver jus-


tice every day.
She features several ground-
breaking elements that distin-
guish it from the competition
and that keep the courtroom
experience true to life: Unlike
other court shows Judge Karen
allows her litigants to cross-ex-
amine their witnesses. At times,
this questioning can turn con-
tentious and the conversations
can dramatically affect the case
outcome.
At the end of each episode is
a segment called "Ask Judge
Karen" in which viewers who
have sent videos to the judge get
their legal questions answered
on the air. In this unique au-
dience interaction segment,:
Judge Karen addresses view-
ers' legal queries directly and
answers them in accessible
layman's terms.


Judge Karen Mills-Francis is a graduate of Bowdoin College,
and the law school of the University of Florida, Gainesville.


The contemporary decor of
the her courtroom features
technological advances as well
as vibrant and illuminating col-
ors. Judge Karen's bench and
each litigant's desk willcontain
a telestrator a device popu-
lar among NFL broadcasters,
cable news networks and mod-
ern courtrooms which allows
a user to draw over images,
highlighting and focusing in on
the object or scene in question.
This tool will allow her to clear-
ly refer to the physical evidence
and make for more lively and
incisive testimony.
"I'm like the mother everyone
should have had," says Judge
Karen. "My show is represen-
tative of a real courtroom, and
the people who come before me
are held responsible for their
actions."


"Judge Karen cares about
the integrity of her courtroom
first and foremost," says Rich
Goldman, executive producer,
Sony Pictures Television. "She
believes in authenticity, and
audiences respond tothat just
as much as they enjoy her hu-
mor and her home-spun wis-
dom. "Born and raised in Mi-
.ami, she was elected twice as
Miami-Dade County Judge,
only the second Black woman
ever to serve in that position.
She is a respected advocate
for disadvantaged youth and
victims of domestic violence,
advocating that lawyers act as
guardians for children in fami-
lies where domestic violence
occurs. She has volunteered as
a foster parent herself, repeat-
edly opening her home to those
in need.

EGAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING EXPRESSIONS OF


INTEREST-FOUR DEVELOPMENT SITES AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
PROJECT NO. EOI-01-08
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY
MIAMI, FLORIDA
The Miami-Dade Aviation Department is announcing the availability of the above referenced Expressions of Interest document (EOI),
which can be obtained by visiting our Website at:
www.miami-airport.com/html/business.opportunities.html (in order to view the full EOI document, please select "Advertisements"
link at the bottom of the Business Opportunities page and then select the respective project).
INVESTMENT SITES: Miami-Dade County's Aviation Department (MDAD) is soliciting responses to the Expressions of Interest (EOI)
from developers/investors for the development of four investment sites at Miami International Airport (MIA).
The four investment sites are located in areas adjacent to MIA's Central Boulevard which is the main public entranceway to the Terminal
Building. These investment sites are:
1) Area "A," commonly known as "Central Base," is a 25 +/- acre site. If an investor/developer chooses, the site may be
subdivided into an 8+/- acre parcel that currently consists of a surface parking area; if this option is chosen, the
investor/developer will not have any future development rights to the remaining 17 acres. MDAD is not mandating what
type of development should go on this site; however, preliminary feedback from interested parties indicates that a
conference center hotel may be ideal for this site. Also, MDAD will not consider any proposals regarding fixed-based
operations (FBO) for this site.
2) Area "B" is an 8 +/- acre site adjacent to NW 20 Street and is designated for the development of a new retail service plaza.
3) Area "C" is the designated new hotel site and is comprised of a 3 +1- acre area that straddles the access lanes to the
parking garages (the "New Hotel Site").
4) Area "D" is the existing in-terminal hotel located at Concourse "E". The hotel has undergone several renovations; however,
extensive renovations are still required including meeting Miami-Dade County Building codes compliance. Currently, Area
D is the existing 252-room, in-terminal MIA Hotel site that may also include three floors of adjoining office space currently
occupied by MDAD.
All other applicable rules, procedures, regulations applicable to privately-funded projects on airport properties will apply. See Exhibit D
of the EOI document for the applicable lobbying rules.
