Diverse candidates vie for North Miami mayor's seat


By Jenna Farmer
U/Miami News Service

Based on election outcomes
next week, the City of North '
Miami may have its second
Haitian-American mayor, its
first Jamaican-American may-
or or its first Cuban-American
mayor. Voters also could opt to
return former mayor, an Anglo,
to office.
The mayor's race, along with
two council seats and the city


clerk, will be de-
*cided in the city's
general election -
May 12. Resi-
dents will be--
gin casting their
votes as early as
May 7 for early DESPINOSSE
voting, which
ends May 9.
Haitian Americans account
'for half of the six mayoral candi-
dates. They are insurance agent
Sidney Charles, who lost his bid


for a city council
seat in 1993; cur-
rent Councilman
Jacques Des-
pinosse, who was
first elected to
North Miami City
Council in 2001 CHARLES
and has served
two terms on the council; and
lawyer Andre Pierre, a former
chairman of the Greater North
Miami Chamber of Commerce.
At one time there were four


Haitian-Ameri-
can candidates
in the crowded -
race. Josaphat
"Joe" Celestin,
North Miami's
first Haitian-
American mayor, HILTON
had officially an-
nounced his candidacy for this
year's election, but dropped out
before the filing deadline, say-
ing there were too many people
in the mayor's race.


Celestin was
elected in 2001,
beating out post-
al worker Arthur
"Duke" Sorey,
who was the first
Black ever elected
to the City Coun- PIERRE
cil in 1995. Ce-
lestin served two terms, which
ended in 2005.
Non-Haitian candidates in-
clude Beverly Hilton, originally
from Jamaica, the owner of a,


pre-K and an after-school pro-
gram in North Miami. Gustavo
Cuervo-Rubio III is Cuban-

Ruth Whyms a mother to all

By Sandra J. Charite a
scharite@miamitimesonline.com


The 700 block of Northwest 48th
Street in Allapattah has special
home where the doors are always
open.
Every Friday, the house is
packed with over 50 kids who
spend the weekend and are picked
up by their parents on Sunday af-
ternoon.
The four-bedroom house, has
been a home to 24 people seeking
a family and love.
"Everyone here shows you love
and the door is always wide open,"
said Kelsey Whyms in a Miami
Times interview on Tuesday.
A philosophy in which Ruth
Whyms and her family have held
on to for the past 50 years.
Nicknamed "Baby Ruth," Whyms,
84, has been a mother to not only
her six sons: Alexander Jr., 60,
deceased; Sterling, 61, deceased;
Dwight, 61; Andrew, 59; Kelsey,
57; and Kevin 56, but to the 100
other kids who walk through her
door in Allapattah.
Paulette, Whyms' daughter-in-
law, recalls, "I usually drop off
my kids to her house on Friday so
one weekend I didn't drop them off
but she came to get the kids any-
ways. She asked me, 'Why didn't
you drop off my grandbabies' and
I told her that I thought she was
tired but she said, I am not tired.
Now, give me my grandbabies."
Throughout the years, Whyms
has helped to raise over 40 grand-
kids and great grandkids.
But she didn't do it alone.

Businesses and wealthy


form shrewd battle lines
By Kevin McCoy


President Obama's plan to crack down
on off-shore tax shelters that benefit U.S.
corporations and wealthy individuals sets
the stage for an unusually direct Washing-
ton battle with high political and financial'
stakes, opponents and supporters said
Monday.
Obama had barely finished outlining
the plan when Republicans and business
groups signaled that blocking the proposal
would be a top priority.
Making good on Obama's campaign
pledges of tax fairness, the administration
predicted its plan would raise more than
$210 billion in new revenue in the next 10
years by:

OPINION


BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


7A THF MIAMI TIMES. MAY 6-12. 2009


Rise in FCAT scores should

have come sooner
he first of the 2009 FCAT scores have arrived, and
Sfor many Miami-Dade schools, they are encourag-
ing. Countywide, the percentage of fourth and eighth
grade students who scored a 4.0 or above on the writing
portion of the FCAT has continued its three-year trend of
steady increase.
Most of our local high schools have maintained or im-
proved upon the scores of previous years. Miami Central
High School led the way, improving its score by nine points.
Miami Carol City High School improved by eight points. All
of this is splendid news for the graduating class of 2011. But
it means little for this year's senior class of 2009, or any of
the poorly-educated classes before it.
Let us make no mistake; our children did not just become
intelligent. They were always ready to learn. What happened
is that we suddenly made their education a priority. This
step was far too long in coming. It should not have taken the
threat of closure for us to demand results from our schools.
We owe our youth an apology.
For years, sub-standard education has been the norm in
our community, and we have allowed it. Miami-Dade Super-
intendent of Schools Alberto Carvalho spoke to packed au-
ditoriums when the topic of closing the schools was raised,
but PTA meetings go unattended as parents apparently be-
lieve that they have better things to do.
The impression this leaves, is that we care only that our
schools remain open, and not necessarily that they remain
or functional. As tragic a loss as a high school or two would
be to our community, perhaps it is time we' accepted that
high schools are not social clubs. It is, to be certain, a won-
derful feeling to watch a son or daughter cross the same
stage we did and receive a diploma, but perhaps it is time we
begin taking more ppde in what our children have learned
than we do in where they learned it.
This school year will decide the fate of Miamhi Edison Se-
nior High school. Students at the school have produced
consistently 'low test scores. The early signs are not good.'
Florida Department of Education figures show that the per-
centage of students earning at least 4.0 (of a possible 6.0) on
the writing portion of the FCAT declined from 69 percent in
,200$ to47, percent in 2009.
If the school is forced to close, the community will, be fu-
rious. Parents .willblame teachers, for fail ing. to, reach;, stu-
dents. Teachers will blame administrators for failing to
update curriculum. Administrators will blame parents for
failing to take an interest, who will in turn lecture their chil-
dren for failing to apply themselves. Everyone will be right,
but we all will have failed.

Is Miami going broke?
|he current edition of the Biscayne Times claims that
the City of Miami is going broke because of the bloat-
ed salaries of its employees. The city itself is pretty
amazing and goes on 'to say that it is only a small part if
the financial problems the city will encounter in the coming
months and years.
A revealing city-to-city comparison is Miami and Atlanta.
In terms of population, Atlanta (519,000) is substantially
bigger than Miami (404,000), but the two cities are very
close when it comes to cost of living and wage levels. Despite
the need to serve 115,000 more residents, Atlanta has just
500 more city workers than Miami -- 4500 vs. 4000. Plus
the City of Atlanta is responsible for running Hartsfield In-
ternational Airport, which is big and busy and comparable
to Miami International Airport. But down here, the county
operates the airport, not the city.
Somehow Atlanta manages to get everything done with just
six city employees who make $200,000 per year or more.
Here are more of the nurfibers revealed in the article, Mi-
ami has 97 employees earning more than $200,000 a year,
81 are members of Fire and Rescue, eight are Fire Chiefs
and four are Police Chiefs. Four thousand employees earn
the average compensation of more than $100,000 per year.
Eighty percent of the city's budget is used to cover salaries.
Maybe Mayor Manny Diaz should take a good look at these
figures.

Everyone is wondering why the government is so intended on
winning the Liberty City Six "terrorism" trial. After three years,
three trials and millions of dollars down the drain, nobody seems
to believe these unsophisticated young men ever had any intent to
blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago and our local FBI office. The
truth is. the Arab con men took advantage of some untested and
inexperienced FBI agents.

One of the most unproductive legislative sessions in our state's
history has just been closed and Florida taxpayers have little to
show for their efforts. Look for about $2 billion in new taxes on
everything and everybody smokers, property owners, drivers,
park-goers, sportsmen, university students and customers of
state-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp.

Blacks have more genetic variation than anyone else on Earth,
according to a new study that helps narrow the location where
humans first evolved, probably near the South Africa-Namibia
border.
The largest study of African genetics ever undertaken also found
that nearly three-fourths of Blacks can trace their ancestry to
West Africa

Everglades restoration will get a boost from about $96 million in
federal stimulus funds coming to Florida for the work. The money
is part of about $250 million coming to Florida through stimulus
funds for civil works projects, including about $6 million to shore
up the aging dike around Lake Okeechobee. Environmentalists
said the funds will help get Everglades restoration back on track.

Now that 67-year-old Jacob Zuma is about to become president,
the question is: Who will be First Lady? And Second Lady? And
will there be a Third Lady?
Mr. Zuma, who led the African National Congress party to an
overwhelming victory in last week's elections, is a onetime goatherd
who enthusiastically embraces his Zulu roots. That means, for
the first time, an avowed polygamist will be occupying the Cape
Dutch-style presidential. palace in Pretoria. Mr. Zuma has been
married four times and currently has two wives and one fiance
waiting in the wings.

The Pew Research revealed almost one-fourth of voters in last
November's election were minorities, the most diverse election ever,
fueled by high turnout from black women and a growing Hispanic
population, an independent research group found.











BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


4A THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 6-12, 2009


Another town hall meeting to discuss failing schools


FCAT
continued from 1A

Edison Senior High school,
which, since last November, has
faced the threat of closure due
to consistently low test scores.
School officials declined to com-
ment, but Florida Department
of Education figures show that
the percent of students earning
at least 4.0 (of a possible 6.0) on
the writing portion of the FCAT
declined from 69 percent in
2008 to 47 percent in 2009.
Miami-Dade Superintendent
of Schools Alberto Carvalho
is unlikely to make any deci-
sion until the FCAT scores for
Reading, Math, and Science are
released next month, accord-
ing to Antonio D. Cotarelo, a
spokesperson for Miami-Dade
Schools.
Ms. Gisela Feild, an adminis-
trative director for Miami-Dade
County Public Schools agreed.
"We don't know what it will
mean, but it's important to re-
member that writiirng is one of


eight components, one eighth of
the school grade," she said. "This
is not any indication of what will
happen to the school."
"The school grades come out
in July," Feild said.
In any case, the Coalition of
Concerned Teachers hopes to be
prepared. The organization will
be hosting a town-hall meeting,
in which they will address some
of the issues affecting the fail-
ing schools.
Ceresta Smith, one of the
meeting's organizers, has
taught at Miami Norland High
School for less than a year, but
she previously taught at Dr. Mi-
chael M. Krop High School since
it opened 11 years ago. The dif-,
ferences, she says, are stark.
"I was asked to come here to
serve as a reading coach. And
when I got here, leaving an A
school and entering an F school,
it became very clear to me why
this school is an F school," she
said.
Such schools that include:
Miami Central Senior High, Mi-


atyi Edison Senior High, Liberty
ity Elementary and Holmes
Elementary, all face closure
for their lack of their improve-
ment.
"The children that attend
these schools are receiving
a very un-equal education,"
Smith continued. "The curricu-
lum that they mandate could
not really educate an eighth
grader, and they're asking us to
use these textual materials and
this curriculum to educate high
school students," she said.
Smith cited other problems,
such as novice administrators
and teachers, and lack of re-
srurces as well.
!"For example, a lot of the re-
mediation programs have com-
puter components. Well, we
don't have the number of com-
puters or labs needed to make
it happen," she said.
The town-hall meeting, sched-
uled to take place at Miami
Jackson Senior High School au-
ditorium, 1751 NW 36th Street,
starting at 7 p.m., May 8. The


meeting, moderated by Jim De-
fede of CBS4, and WFTL's "The
Jim Defede Show, and include
Dr. Joy DeGruy, author of "Post
Traumatic Slave Syndrome,"
will address these issues and
a panel will also include local
teachers, who Smith says are
often left out of the dialogue.
"Generally the regular class-
room teacher is not in the di-
alogue," said Smith. "When
you're talking about education
or curriculum reform, it's done
on the legislative level, with
our elected officials, and on the
administrative level, with our
principals, but the every day
teacher who is sitting in the
classroom is excluded. We're
the community that is closest
to the students, but we're never
really used as a resource," she
said.
The Department of Educa-
tion will release the 2009 Flor-
ida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT) Reading and
Mathematics Retake results on
Thursday, May 7.


Whyms continues to have an open door policy


WHYMS
continued from 1A

At 18, she married Alexander
Whyms. Immediately after, Al-
exander went to the army but
returned years later to his wife.
The separation made their mar-
riage stronger as they built their
home in Allapattah and raised
their children.
The Whyms' carried an "open
house" tradition of letting peo-
ple in for food, shelter, clothing,
or some place to stay. Through-
out the years, they have adopt-
ed hundreds of kids.
Paulette, who considers her-
self one of the adopted children,
said that Ruth Whyms never let
any of the kids who stayed with
her miss a Sunday service at
the Ebenezer United Methodist
Church.
Whyms was a house worker


in Miami Beach while her hus-
band worked for Internatidnal
Longshoremen's Association
Local 1416 for 40 years.
The two were married for 66
years but Alexander passed
away last month.
"I miss him," said Whyms.
"From the day he came from the
service, he loved me and showed
it. His strength and his love for
me is where my strength comes
, from."
Renowned motivation speak-
er Les Brown, another one of
Whyms adopted children, con-
siders himself to have been
lucky. Brown was close with
the family after meeting their
oldest son, Alexander Jr., in the
second grade. He believes that
without their investment in him
that he wouldn't be the man
that he is today.
He defines Alexander Sr. as


the "father that I never had"
and says that Whyms made a
severe impact in his life.
S"She is like my second moth-
er. She is very driven and deter-
mined with a passion for life,"
said Brown.
When'his best friend and men-
tor, Alexander Jr., died in 2002,
Brown was distraught but he
said that Whyms mothered him
by encouraging and strength-
ening him to keep going.
"When her son died, she told
me that you live on. She taught
me the value of having faith and
being unstoppable. She lives
her faith," said Brown.
Known f6r being straight for-
ward, Whyms has also influ-
enced the life of Freda Whyms-
Jones who was previously mar-
ried to her son, Kevin, but Jones
visits,Whyms frequently.
"I am a lady today because of


her," said Jones. "She taught
me how to love and forgive."
Surprisingly, Whyms says her
sons' obedience made her par-,
enting easier.,
"I showed them love and I still
do," she said.
Kelsey agreed.
"It was always about doing
the right thing and she nev-
er backed us up when we did
wrong," he said.
At 84, Whyms has no regrets
but she continues to give love
to anyone who walks through
the doors at 729 Northwest 48th
Street.
"Words can't explain. It is an
overwhelming feeling to hear
others who have experienced
'729' talk about how grateful to
have stepped foot in this house,"
said Kelsey.
Happy Mother's Day, Ruth
Whyms.


Candidate's arrest charges remain quiet during elections


SEAT
continued from 1A

on their ethnicities but on their
priorities if elected to
office.
This election will
mark a political turn-
ing point, Despinosse
said. Whether he wins
or loses, the mayoral
race is his last.
"With this election,
I'm done. I close this
page," said Despinosse WOL
who also is the execu-
tive director for the
Haitian American Citizenship
and Voter Education Center in
Little Haiti.
"I have done everything I can
for the Haitian community," he
said.
Charles, 54, says his political
connections in the Democrat
and Republican parties also
will help him bring resources
to the city. Charles is a member


of several city boards, includ-
ing the Mayor's Economic Task
Force. He also served was a vice
president of the Haitian Ameri-
can Democratic Club as
well as vice chairman of
the Republican Party of
Dade County.
Last week, however,
Charles admitted that
he had been arrested
four times
since 1999 -
twice on drug-
AND related charg-
es and twice


on charges of
lewd and lascivious
behavior. In each case,
including the most re-
cent arrest in 2004 for
cocaine possession, the
charges were dropped.


CUERVO-


The recent revelation of
Charles'. arrest record so far has
not become a campaign issue
that his opponents have used
against him. And it is his politi-


cal and community record that
shows his capabilities to run a
city, Charles said.
"Working with both sides of
the political equation, you real-
ize that it is not about political
parties, it is about being effective
and knowing and understanding

Former Haitian schoolteacher runs for North Miami City Clerk


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com

It was just three years ago that
Alix Desulme was walking down
the aisles of Biscayne Elemen-
tary in North Miami as an Esol
(English for speakers of other;
languages) teacher. .
Today, Desulme, 31, is trying
to fill bigger shows as he takes
the leap for North Miami City
Clerk.
"I am a public servant at first.
I want to serve the people," said
Desulme who is no stranger to
politics.
Desulme previously ran for the
councilman for District 3, eight
years ago, but he was defeated
by current Councilman Jacques
Despinosse who is now seeking
North Miami mayoral seat.
In Desulme's second attempt


for the council seat in District
4, he ran against Marie Erlande
Steril but again was defeated by
65 votes.
Desulme was not upset nor
dismayed because he said the
elections helped him gain city-
wide exposure.
This election,, he planned on
running for a council seat again
but opted for the City Clerk po-
sition, which will be vacated by
Frank Wolland who is also seek-,
ing a mayoral position.
However, Desulme's win as
City Clerk will make him the
first Haitian City Clerk of North
Miami which is a long-awaited
journey for the Haitian native.
At the age 'of six, Desulme,
traveled to New York from HaitiL
to be with his family. His family
later relocated to North Miami
and Desulme attended North


t
I
.,-q~


ALIX DESULME


Miami Middle and High School.
Desulme was determined to be


successful. After graduation, he
matriculated to St. Thomas Uni-
versity to pursue a bachelor of
arts in Organizational Leader-
ship and Business in 2002. He
continued on to receive his mas-
ters degree in Exceptional Stu-
dent Education/ ESOL in 2004.
This fall, Desulme will complete
the Specialist in Educational
Leadership program at Florida
Atlantic University.
He has been the President/
CEO of the marketing and pub-
lic relations firm, Alix Desulme'
& Associates (ADA), Incorporat-
ed, since 2001. He was a teacher
at Biscayne Gardens Elemen-
tary School from 2004-06. Even
in his busy schedule, Desulmel
finds time to be an active mem-
ber of the 5000 Role Models of
Excellence Project.
So far, he has been endorsed


by several people within the
community that include Florida
State Representatives: Ronald
Brise, Oscar Braynon, Dwight
M. Bullard, James Bush III;
Florida State Senator Frederica
S. Wilson; Village of El Portal
Mayor Joyce Davis; Miami-
Dade County Public Schools
Board Member Wilbert "Tee"
Holloway; City of North Miami
Beach Councilman John Patrick
Julien; United Teachers of Dade
(UTD) Secretary/Treasurer Fre-
drick Ingram; and City of Miami
Gardens Councilman Oliver G.
Gilbert.
Davis described Desulme
as, "a rising star on the local
scene."
"Since meeting Alix I have
watched him grow into the type
of person that would well serve
his community. He has my full


support," she said in a state-
ment.
Wilson said, "Alix is a leader
who will fight for what is right for
all the residents in North Miami.
Alix will always put the interest
of the resident first, he will be a
strong voice for the voiceless."
With a week away from elec-
tions, Desulme clinches for a
win but his opponent, Carol
Besade-Preger, also desires the
City Clerk seat.
The 56-year-old has been a
North Miami resident for 47
years. Besade-Preger is a real
estate broker and a retired busi-
ness owner but she is new to the
political field.
"Running for City Clerk is a
natural evolution for me," she
said in statement.

Miami-Dade students rewarded


for completing Success Academy


By Tariq Osborne
tosborne@@miamitimesonline.com


Hard work paid off for stu-
dents at Holmes Elementary, lo-'
cated in Liberty City, who were,
a total of $9,980 for their partic-
ipation in "Success Academy,"
a program in which elementary
school students were paid $10
to attend weekend ard holiday
courses for extra tutoring.
The program is in its first year
and designed to improve scho-
lastic: performance on state ex-
anis.
"This is the signature initia-
tive that I'm most proud of be-
cause it relies on the expertise
of teachers, on involvement of
the community, and the, partici-
pation of students," said Miami-
Dade Superintendent 'Alberto
Carvalho in a Miami Times in-
terview.
Carvalho, appointed last Sep-
tember, proposed the program's
initiative to faculty, parents and
students last November at a spe-
cial town hall meeting, designed
to discuss the failing schools in
the district that would face clo-
sure if they did not improve.
These schools include: Holmes
Elementary School, Liberty City
Elementary' School, Miami Cen-
tral Senior High and Miami Edi-
son Senior High, and Elemen-
tary.
Ca-rvalho said at that meet-
ing, "I am designating these
four schools as my personal re-
sponsibility."
With that the journey began
to improving the school in the
midst of financial budget woes.
Carvalho's teaching back-
ground as a science teacher as
Miami Jackson Senior High was
evident, as he adeptly held the
attention of the students in the
school library on Friday.
In his remarks, he praised the
students for forgoing weekend
pleasures in favor of studying.
"We promised you that for ev-
ery day that you came to school
instead of watching Saturday-
morning cartoons, you'd get
$10. Today we keep our prom-
ise," he said, adding "A lot of
you showed up every single
Saturday!"
Michael Boyeaux, 10, was one
of those students who did not
consider his Saturdays such a
great price to pay.
"I didn't mind [coming on Sat-
urdays] really, I actually, love
school," he said. The fourth-
grader says that the extra help
improved his schoolwork, say-
ing that one of the most impor-


tant things he learned during
the program was to double-
check his work. "Sometimes I'd
find a lot of mistakes," he said.
i. Natalia Rosado, 9, a third-:
grader who loves math also
agreed with Michael.
"I will do it again next year
because its fun, and I think
it's better because you're doing
something else than watching
TV and" playing," she said. "My,
teacher said my work is better
too," she added.
In addition to the $9,980
earned by students, which goes
into savings accounts the chil-
dren opened at the beginning of
the program, Success Academy
has resulted in $35,000 in ad-
ditional teacher pay -over the
same period.
Nadine Liberty has been
teaching for 20 years and cur-
rently teaches science to third,
fourth, and fifth-graders. She
says the additional pay was,
not her incentive for participat-.
ing in the program. Working on
Saturday was not an imposi-
tiorl for her, as she already tu-
tored on those days.
Liberty told the Miami Times
of her methodology in reaching.


the students. "I did labs," she
said. "Every mornirig I would
cook for them; chocolate chip
pancakes and eggs (because
it's a chemical reaction). Word
spread and more and more!
Lame. Liberty concedes that,
the money incentive likely
urged students to attend, but
believes that it was the hands
on labs that excited her stu-
dents.
Liberty taught three classes
per Saturday over the course
of the program. Each lab lasted
for an hour and fifteen min-
utes, which .gave her ample
time to conduct a lab, and then
discuss it with the children af-
terwards," she said.
The Success Academy pro-
gram was conducted at Holmes
Elementary School at Liberty
City Elementary school, and
at Corporate Academy. Liber-
ty City Elementary received a
check for $7,590, and Corpo-
rate Academy received one for
$12,450. Corporate Academy
students, being in high school,
received $30 per session.
."This was an experiment,"
said Carvalho, "and the experi-
ment worked."

Between midnight and 12:30,
p.m. on April 27, a wallet, credit
cards and passport were stolen
from a 1997 Honda Accord in the
15100 block of Northwest 29th
Avenue. The stolen items were
valued at $52.
Between midnight and 1:45

a d tailed budget proposal set
for release this week, would
address imbalances in "a tax
code that says you should pay
lowey taxes if you create a job
in Bangalore, India, than if
you create one in Buffalo, New
York."
Congressional Republicans
agreed- with the crackdown on
tax evasion, but they said the
plan would unfairly double-tax
U.S. multinational companies
by forcing them to pay levies
to both Washington, and for-
eign countries -- without the
current deferral that cushions
the impact. Other multination-
als don't face such payrrients,
they said.
"I cannot endorse a plan that
gives preferential treatment to
foreign companies at the ex-

sional Democrats 'in backing
most of the plan. *He offered
no prospect of easAy approval,
cautioning that study is need-
ed to gauge the U.S. business
impact.
Such hesitance may signal
that even Democraticd control
of Congress won't ensure the
plan's approval, said Marty
Regalia, chief economist of the
U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The business group wants
members of both parties to op-
pose the plan.
Kenneth Kies, managing di-
rector of the Federal Policy
Group, a tax lobbying firm
in Washington, predicted the
plan's fate would hinge on
whether Congress believes it
helps or hurts U.S. jobs. One
of the White House's selling
points, said Kies, whose firm
represents U.S. multinationals
skeptical of the plan, is that
the package would raise feder-
al income. "Last time I checked
... 'I need the revenue' was not
a tax policy argument," he
said. .


.* Cigarettes and five dollars
in quarters were stolen after
someone broke a window and
unlocked a door at the M&M
Food Mart in. the 15800 block of
Northwest 27th Avenue at 5:15

were valued at $200.
A laptop computer, $10,000,
a passport and a check for
$10,000 were stolen from an un-
locked house in the 4500 block
of Northwest 185th Street. The
theft took place between 7:30
a.m. and 7 p.m. pn April 17. The
laptop and passport were valued
at $2,001.
A camera and $2,000 were
stolen from a 2004 Chevrolet
Express van in the 4700 block
of Northwest 165th Street. Be-
tween 12:45 and 2:45 p.m. on
April 17, the thief entered by
prying a door open. Damage was
estimated at $300.

12-hour walk to raise funds for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life April 25.

Commissioner Jordan's Relay For Life team
helps raise funding for cancer research


They walked all of Friday
night and into the early next
morning, all in the name of a
cure for cancer. Miami-Dade
County Commissioner Bar-
bara J. Jordan and her team,
including several football
players from the University
of Miarrii, participated in the
American Cancer Society's
Relay For Life on April 24,
along with twenty-five other
teams, collectively raising ap-
proximately $36,000 for can-
cer research. Coach Randy
Shannon and Hurricanes
Adewale Ojomo, Ryan Hill,
Courtney Harris, Graig Coo-
per, Gavin Hardin, Richard
Gordon, Marcus Forston and
Jake Wieclaw were on site for
the opening/survivor ceremo-
ny while Commissioner Jor-


dan and her staff, took turns
walking around a track for 12
hours at the Miami Job Corps
Center in Miami Gardens in
order to raise the funds.
The Relay For Life, is a
fundraiser in which teams
of participants camp out at
a local high school, park, or
fairground and take turns
walking or running around a
track or path. Each team is
asked to have a representa-
tive on the track at all times
during the event, with relays
going on overnight up to 24
hours.
With cancer affecting one
in every three people, the re-
lay serves as a reminder of
those currently fighting or
who have lost their battles
with cancer, and message of


hope that the disease will one
day be eliminated.
"I am extremely grateful for
the enthusiasm and dedication
of our Hurricane football play-
ers who assisted with setting
up the event and made sure
we raised as much as we could
for the American Cancer Soci-
ety," said Commissioner Jor-
dan. "The more we participate
in raising public awareness of
cancer, the better chance we
have of early detection, pre-
vention, and finding a cure."
This year, UM head football
coach Randy Shannon, his
staff, and the entire team sup-
ported the relay, also donat-
ing two autographed footballs
that were raffled off during
the event for cancer research
funds.

Accepting God's plans for your children


Mother's Day is this Sun-
day. Have you purchased
your Mother's Day cards and
gifts yet? Even if your mother
or grandmother is no longer
alive, you must have someone
in your life that has been a
mother figure for you. It might
be an aunt or sister or even a
friend. What about your Pas-
tor or Pastor's wife or one of
the sisters or mothers in the
church? Of course, the Bible
speaks of many mothers in the
Bible. There is Sarah, Tamar


(who bore twin sons from Ju-
dah), Rebecca, Lois, Eunice,
and many more. We know of
course, about Mary, the moth-
er of Jesus.
I remember hearing a state-
ment years ago by Pastor John
Hagee about Mary that I have
never forgotten. It was, and
still is, quite meaningful and
thought provoking for me.
Pastor Hagee said that
Mary's reaction to Jesus being
arrested, beaten, and crucified
should have proven above any-


thing else that He was indeed,
God's Son. Mary was the one
human being who knew with-
out a doubt that Jesus was the
Son of God. She knew that He
was not conceived by the seed
of a natural man. She knew
that she was a virgin, and had
no sexual relations with any
man. She knew that she had
been impregnated with the seed
of the Holy Spirit. When her
precious Son was beaten un-
mercifully, and later hung on
a cross, the instrument of His
death, Mary was present. She
looked upon her child in bro-
kenness, hurt and pain. How-
ever, nowhere in scripture does
it say that Mary ever attempted
to stop this murder by admit-
ting that Jesus was really not
whom He proclaimed to be.
What mother would stand
quietly through these horren-


dous scourging and not admit
that her Son was really Jo-
seph's son to stop these beat-
ings? What mother would
just stand helplessly at the foot
of the cross to which her son
was being nailed and not stop
this horror by admitting that
he was not incarnate, but as
human as her other children?
The very fact that Mary did
not try to stop the execution of
her Son speaks volumes. She
knew that He truly was the
Son of God. He was whom He
claimed to be. Would not Mary
cry out to anyone who would
listen, the truth if the truth
could save his life? If the truth
was that He was not the Son
of God, I think that she would
have admitted it to prevent His
death.
Mary set an example for those
of us who are mothers today.


We should never intervene or
interfere with God's plans for
our children. No matter how
painful it seems to be for our
children, or how miserable
they seem to be, we must trust
that God, our Heavenly, per-
fect Father, truly does know
what is best. We cannot rush
to their rescue in an attempt
to fix' everything that happens
in their lives. Just as earthly
mothers must sometimes ad-
minister discipline, so must
our Heavenly Father. Unlike
earthly mothers, His discipline
is always for our best. A good
mother trusts a good God with
her children, knowing that He
loves them even more than we
are capable of loving them be-
cause His love is perfect, and
we are loving, but nonetheless
infallible human beings.
Mothers, I urge you today, to


be the very best mother that
you can by entrusting your
children (no matter what their
age) to God. Children (no mat-
ter what your age), I encour-
age you to remember that your
mother is not perfect, and
though she might have made
mistakes, and may continue
to do so, you are still required
of God to honor that mother. I
know that some mothers are
abusive. I know that not all
mothers want the best for their
children. Some mothers are so
bound by addictions, and bad
choices that they are unable to
make good decisions regarding
their children. Nonetheless, we
are required by God to honor
our mothers be the good, bad
or even absent. Honor them
with respect. Honor them with
sincere prayer.
Happy Mother's Day Ladies!!

Today marks a year since
you have been gone from our
physical presence. However,
you remain in our hearts and
thoughts forever.
There are times when we sit
and recollect and our hearts
'grow heavy and our eyes fill
with tears, but in the end we
laugh with just the thought of
your beautiful smile.
What it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know. May
God continue to bless and em-
brace you each passing day.
And may you have everlasting
peace of mind to know you are
remembered with lots of love.
May you and the angels con-
tinue to prance around GOD's
happy throne until we cross
each other's path again.
Love always, your Mother,
Husband, Children, Sisters
and Brothers


One year ago, exactly
on Mother's Day, the Lord
decided to call you on home
to glory. It has been a long
and rough year for the family.
We miss you so dearly and
our hearts are still heavy from
your sudden departure.
We know the Lord only takes
the best, and that He did. Our
S peace is found in knowing
that you are now on the other
side of pain fears and tears.
We.can still see you so clearly,
.we hear your laugh, see your
smile and feel your spirit in
our midst and in our hearts.
A phenomenal woman we
lost, but the Lord knows best
and heaven was ready to fAll-
another place in its beautiful
garden. Your ministry, your
faith, your strength and the
essence ofyou lives on through
all the lives you touched.
Rest in peace, for we know
your soul is rejoicing with the
Lord.
We miss and love you
MAR always!
Your family and friends

The event, which is a

of music in District 1," said
Commissioner Jordan, visionary
of the series. "As we are all
navigating our way through
these very challenging times,
it is my hope that this evening
of music and the many other
artistic programs we produce in
the future will lift the spirits of
those who attend." -

It was Mardi Gras
time at the Sigma Alpha
Chapter of Omega Psi
Phi Fraternity :on Sat-
urday, April 25. And,
of course, two hours
before starting time,'
Harold Braynon was
tying up loose ends
on the outside by put-

signs, two tents, tables
and chairs on the parking lot
for the guests who wanted to
enjoy their evening under the
stars and amidst the pleasant
breeze.
Further, on the inside,
in the main ballroom
were Theron Clark,
Henry Mingo and a few
lamplighters putting on
center pieces on the ta-
bles and arranging the
chairs a distance from
15-huge speakers to be M(

Handfield assisted with the re-
freshments for the guests in the
lounge, while William "Bill"
Diggs, chairman and president
of the Miami-Dade Chamber of
'Commerce, monitored the en-
tire operation for his approval.
He was pleased to observe the
ballroom upstairs that was the
Hip-hop room; the main ball-
room for the oldyy goldies" and
the lounge set aside for the jazz
lovers.
The crowd came early and
the traffic on the inside kept
moving from room to room until
10 p.m. when the guests began


to settle down, finding the most
enjoyable room.- More then 500
people showed up for Mardi
Gras and food and drinks were
available for their tasting, as
well as dancing, listening, and
fraternizing. There were Omega
Men from Ft. Lauderdale, Rich-
mond Heights, along with, their
wives, sweethearts, and signifi-
cant others dressed for the oc-
casion, especially the Florida
Memorial Uiniversity. students.
Based on Diggs' evaluation,
Mardi Gras 2009 is a sure bet
for 2010 at the Omega Activity
Center. Sig Al, the sponsoring
group, did not go in the hole for
first time in many a year. Other
groups, check it out for your

HOW TO PLAN GOOD TIMES WITH

THE ONES YOU LOVE

Family Reunion Fun in Miami


So you're planning your family's next
reunion? Florida has many great locations
in which to reunite with your loved ones,
Beautiful beaches and pristine waterways extend
north to south and east to west. If you have been
selected .to host your next family reunion,
VISITFLORIDA.com/reunions is the perfect
resource for you. VISIT FLORIDA provides
family reunion planners with videos, photos, online
how-to-guides, experts and much more to help
guide you through the reunion planning process.

If you're a first-time family reunion planner, or
even if you've planned reunions before, you're
not alone. Begin the planning process as early
as possible and be sure to include activities for
the kids like a visit to Jungle Island, an 18.6-acre
theme park that is home to more than 3,000 exotic
animals and 500 species of plants. Take the kids to
see animal stage shows, one-of-a-kind interactive
aviaries, and jungle trails. Be sure to also stop
by the nearby Miami Children's Museum. The
museum, is perfect for a younger audience and
features interactive exhibits including a miniature
supermarket, a television news studio, a cruise
ship and a giant sandcastle slide.

VISIT FLORIDA has a long list of ideas and hints
to help every family reunion planner ensure an
authentic Miami experieAce. Learn where to go to
try some Caribbean infused conch or a good place
to grab a Cuban sandwich. There's also the Black
Heritage Trail Guide which lists a multitude of
cultural and historical sites to visit, including the
historic Coconut Grove, the first black community
established in South Florida.

Now an up-and-coming neighborhood, Coconut
Grove along with Key Biscayne and Sunny Isles
all house family-friendly attractions like Miami


Seaquarium where the 1960s hit television show
Flipper was filmed. The family can spend some
time learning about the rest of the animal kingdom
at Miami's Metrozoo, the only zoo in the United
States located in a subtropical climate. The 27-
acre exhibit features jaguars, anacondas, giant
river otters and stingray touch tanks.

Hit South Beach and have a family picnic filled
with food off the grill, sand sporting activities,
jet skiing and parasailing, or try your hand at
group scuba diving. Head to Key Biscayne's
Crandon Beach Park where there's a carousel
and playground for younger children, or take the
family over to see a professional football, baseball
or basketball game.

Miami isn't short on public access to golf courses
either. You can take to the green at public golf
courses like Miami-Dade's lush and beautiful par
72 Crandon Park Golf Course.

From shopping boutiques on Ocean Avenue to
one of Miami's most historic sites, Coral Gables'
Venetian Pool, there's plenty to see and do.
Venetian Pool is a public freshwater pool formed
from an old coral-rock quarry. It's fed 820,000
gallons of spring water daily and is considered
one of the world's most unique and breathtaking
municipal swimming pools.

There's so much family fun across the state, and
no matter where you decide to hold your family
gathering, VISIT FLORIDA, the Sunshine State's
official source for travel planning, can help make
any reunion-from the planning stage to the
actual vacation-fun, exciting and enjoyable
for the whole family. Get started online at

The stakes are high in a grim economy


In case you haven't
noticed, the level
of hateful language
against Black people
has risen within, re-
cent months. ,'- ,'
Also, purchases of
guns and ammuni-
tion have increased
during that same pe-
riod. Talk show hosts
are taking more
liberties with their
acid-tAongued,h ven-
'om-laced, political
rhetoric, and we are
seeing more. sense-
less acts of violence
across this nation
everyday.
Both symbolically
and substantively,
images of what is yet
tor come are before
our very eyes every-
day; yes, the stakes
have been raised to
new heights. Have.
you been paying at-%
tention?
On the economic
front, things are get-
ting worse. Have you
checked out the un-
employment rates in
various states across
the country? They
are as high as 17 per-
cent in some of coun-
ties in Ohio, where I
live. That means, as
we all know, that the
unemployment rate
for Black people is
double and in some
areas even quadruple
that of the national
average.
Housing, jobs,
business growth,
economic exclusion,
and economic apart-
heid are all very pres-


a -

*an-
fto -~mma401


ent in today's world.
It's almost to the
point of dog-eat-dog
at this point, espe-
cially when it comes
to economics, and
you know what that
means: The big dog
eats first and the big
dog eats the most.
As Nelson Rivers of
the National NAACP
says, "We need a big
dog, but to have a big
dog we have to feed
the dog we have."
That's exactly
what's happening in
our economy. The
big dogs are being
fed while the rest of
us look on salivating
with envy. Banks are
being bailed out. Au-
tomobile companies
are being rescued
from the brink of di-
saster.
War financiers are
still busy making
money. Politicians
,are fat and happy.
with their cushy
salaries and pension
plans. College bas-
ketball coaches over.
'$30 million contracts
while- the college
players can't even get
a free lunch.
Symbolically, the
lowest tactics are be-
ing used to divide and
conquer the masses.
Fox News against
MSNBC News, with
anchors who are to-
tally engrossed in po-
litical claptrap. Parti-
san politics abound,
Obama's olive branch
to the Republicans
notwithstanding.

edge of a violation of this Ordinance shall report such violation to the State
Attorney and/or may file a complaint with the Ethics Commission. Bidders or
Proposers should reference the actual Ordinance for further clarification.
