Will the 50 recent arrests in Overtown change the

situation on drug the streets?


WILLIE ABNER, 69
Business Supervisor, Liberty City
I don't be-
lieve so. They'll
still be a lot of
drugs on the
street. They're .
gonna get out
and do the
same thing
again. They
won't try to get
a job, they don't want to work.
Those people live that way be-
cause from .the time they're
kids, it's all they know.
TONY BROOKS, 51
Retired, Miami
It's hard to
say. The drugs ,;
they seized .
might be off w.r
the streets, '
but maybe - .
the people will
just get out get


more and do it again. I don't re-
ally know the statistics or any-
thing like that, but that's what
it seems like. So really you can't
be sure.
DEE WILLIAMS, 29
.Car Wash Attendantr, Miami
I think so
and I think
it was a good
idea. Less
drugs should
help stop the
killing and L
violence and
all that. It's a
shame what's
going on out here, and I think
the busts will help improve the
situation on the streets.
PAT HENRYGRANT, 46
Entrepreneur, Liberty City
It won't do a thing. They have
to get the drugs where they
come in. The cops need to be


aiming for the
top people.
The guys they
busted; other
people will
just take their' '
place. If you --
really want to
change any-
thing, you
have to get the bosses.
PATRICK AUGUSTIN, 37
Entrepreneur, Little Haiti
Those little
busts aren't
going to stop
a.n y thing.
If you want f .
to stop the .-
drugs, tell
them to close
the airport
down. And
give them
another option. If they want
them to stop selling drugs for
good, they need to create some


real jobs.
ERIC REDDING, 24
Car Wash Attendant, Miami
It's not going to change any-
thing. This is Miami, One place
stops, five
more places
open up. The
way to stop
it is to start
giving those
people they
arrest a sec-
ond chance.
Take me for
example, I just got out, and can't
find any job. But if I go and sell
drugs, I'm wrong. Putting more
people into the system is part of
the problem.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


Marchers show their shared Haitian pride at Miami Edison Senior High School's Flag Day on Monday. -MiamiTimes photo/Tariq Osborne


Students remember those who lost their lives


FLAG DAY
continued from 1A

third annual Haitian Pride
march. More than 300 stu-
dents marched and danced
their way from the high school,
down Northwest 62nd Street.
Then swung around to pick up
some of the younger students
from Edison Middle School
and proceeded to the statue of
Toussaint-Louverture on the


corner of North Miami Avenue
and Northwest 62nd Street,
where Wilson Louis and Pastor
Eddy Gervais, of Community
Christian Church, 311 NE 78th
Street, gave a brief address.
"It's a day of celebration,"
said Louis, 25, who organized
the event, "but it's also bitter-
sweet."
Louis was referring to the
nine Haitians who died in a
suspected failed smuggling at-


tempt last week in the waters
off Boynton Beach. His address
included a moment of silence in
their memory.
The high spirits of the chil-
dren could not be reigned in
however, and Gervais, 37, found
this inspiring. "It's good to see
the kids out here now, and it's
good for the older Haitians to
see the kids celebrating their
heritage" he said. "It was a lot
different when we were grow-


ing up. I graduated from Miami
Edison Sr. Iigh School's class
of 1990, and before that, when I
was in middle school, I remem-
ber that sometimes, we had to
run home."
"The sad thing' is that we
were being chased by African-
Americans," Gervais continued.
"There used to be animosity
between the two groups. Back
then people used to be terrified
that their Black friends would


find out they were Haitian. So
today symbolizes a big break-
through for us," he said.
The revelers clearly agreed.
Despite the fact that the march
was advertised primarily at Edi-
son High School, it was very ev-
ident that news of it had spread
quickly through the Haitian
community. Vendors turned
out to sell their wares, and
neighbors came out mingle and
enjoy traditional Haitian food


from the vendors. Cars deco-
rated with Haitian flags drove
by beeping their horns.
Wathsou Eustache, a
16-year-old sophomore who
was in attendance found the
display of solidarity hearten-
ing, and decided on a whim to
join the marchers. "I was just at
the school when it started," he
said. "When Haitians are being
represented, I like to take part.
It really means a lot," he said.


OVERTOWN
A man was shot dead just be-
fore 11 p.m. at 240 Northwest
21"t -Street. A police spokes-,
man said officers found what
appeared to be AK-47 rounds
within the area. Investigators
are looking for a white Ford
Taurus seen leaving the area
at the time of the shooting.

ALLAPATTAH
Around 5:06 a.m. Saturday,
an off-duty sergeant heard
shots in the area of Northwest
22nd Avenue and Northwest
35th Street. The officer saw a
vehicle .fleeing the area and
followed the car. The sergeant
eventually stopped the car and
arrested the driver. The driver
had opened fire on another
car because he had an ongo-
ing dispute over a girl with a
man inside. The two victims
were taken to a local hospital
and are expected to live.

NORTH MIAMI
Ricardo Geffrey, 31 was
shot dead in the lobby of a
North Miami apartment build-
ing Sunday with one bullet in
his chest, according to police.
The shooting took place near
14425 Northeast Sixth Ave-
nue around 1 a.m. Police said
Geffrey's killer shot him once
near the heart. Investigators
found one semiautomatic pis-

Tate elected PULSE new president
By Tariq Osborne
tosborne@miamnitimesonline.conm i m l Ijk


Rev. Anthony Tate of New Res-
urrection Community Church in
Liberty City was named president
of prominent local civil rights or-
ganization, People United to Lead
the Struggle for Equality (PULSE)
during its 28th annual convention
held on Saturday, May 16.
"I've always been a leader," said
Tate. It's been God's anoint-
ing in my life, and the clout that
the PULSE organization has will
make me more effective, it will
give me a bit more leverage in
dealing with those in authority."
Tate and many others par-
ticipated in the convention that
took place at Faith Community
Baptist Church, combining such
mundane aspects as financial
reports with performances from
local dance troupes and choirs.
The event drew such prominent
local figures as State Sen. Dan
Gelber.
PULSE was incorporated in
September of 1981. Today, PULSE
is comprised of 39 churches and
civic groups from throughout Mi-
ami-Dade County.
Tate's first aim is to raise
PULSE's profile among the
young.


Outgoing PULSE President Rev. Richard R Dunn II (left) and Executive Director Nathaniel
Wilcox (middle) congratulate Rev. Anthony Tate, as newly elected president of PULSE.


"This organization," he said,
"should be a household name
in the low-to-moderate income
community. I was raised in this
community, I graduated from
Miami Jackson Sr. High school;
class of 1977, so I know that
community and its needs and
concerns."
Rev. Richard Dunn II, the out-
going president, said that one of
the biggest challenges one faces
as president of PULSE lies in
motivating people.
"Sometimes the very people we
him to assist don't understand
what's at stake for them," he


said. "That's always a challenge
for civil rights organizations."
Dunn also took a moment to
express his confidence in Tate's
leadership. "The presidency is
in great hands," he said. "[Tate]
is a fighter, and he's committed.
I know he won't give up, but he
will have to motivate people to
do for themselves and to fight
for themselves. It's just one of
the challenges of the job," he
said.
Nathaniel Wilcox has been
executive director of PULSE for
nearly 18 years, and outlined
some of the organization's gen-


-Miami Times photos/Tariq Osborne
eral goals.
"PULSE, as an organization,
committed to putting the spot-
light 'on injustices, whether
they are in a system, or commit-
ted by an individual," he said.
Wilcox cited perhaps PULSE's
most famous case, which oc-
curred in November of 2006,
when then Florida State Rep.
Ralph Arza used a racial slur in
reference to then-superinten-
dent Rudy Crew. According to
Wilcox, PULSE was one of the
organizations that took lead on
the issue, eventually resulting
in Arza's retirement.


MDPD recognizes Officer of the Month


The Miami-Dade Police De-
partment (MDPD) is pleased to
annouiice that Intracoastal Dis-
trict Officer Bissainthe Pierre
was given the depart-
mental Exceptional
Service Award and se-
lected Distinguished
Officer of the Month for
May.
Pierre has been a
member of the depart-
ment since August
2006. His quick think-
ing led to a series of PIE
apprehension of sub-
jects in 2008.
Since completing the Intrac-
oastal District's Field Training
and Evaluation Program (FTEP)


in 2008, Pierre has clearly stood
out in his statistical productiv-
ity. He carried out 551 assigned
calls for service, issued 552 traf-
fic citations, gave 74
verbal warnings and
wrote 326 field inter-
view reports. He also
made 16 felony, 52 mis-
demeanor, 10 traffic ar-
rests and had 10 felony
subject apprehensions.
Pierre has appre-
hended numerous resi-
RE dential burglars, ve-
hicle burglars and auto
theft subjects.
The Department believes that
Pierre exemplifies the highest
standards of patrol officer.


Trial tainted by ethical concerns


FREE
continued from 1A

to be a hung jury if she had
been allowed to stay on.
The jury, which began de-
liberations on April 27 after a
two-month trial, was interrupt-
ed twice the first time after a
sick juror had to be replaced,
and the second time after the
judge removed recalcitrant Ju-
ror No. 4. The jury convened


anew May 5, wrapping up on
the sixth day of deliberations.
But the jury foreman's notes
to the judge -- along with Ju-
ror No. 4's response -- raise
questions about whether the
dismissed woman was actu-
ally refusing to deliberate. The
case was about an FBI sting
operation that tested the ter-
rorist intentions of a group of
inner-city Black men and one
Hispanic.

Toney: Funds allocated to Liberty City now "up for grabs"


ZONES
continued from 1A

south to Northwest 79t Street
to the north, and
from Northwest 27th
Avenue in the west
to North Miami Av-
enue 'in the east.
All of the program's
resources were
originally slated for
this territory. Now
they will be "up for
grabs" according to
Toney.
State Rep. James
Bush III of District BU!
109 agreed with
Toney on this point. In a letter
to Bullard on April 24, Bush,
whose district also includes
Liberty City, wrote,, "The
removal of the geographic
boundaries subjects the pilot
project to several additional
layers of political debate as to
which community will receive
the benefit of these dollars
and leaves the project vulner-
able to a power struggle."
County Commissioner Au-
drey Edmohson, in whose
district the original funds
would have been applied, de-
clined to comment. "I did not
have a chance to thoroughly
read the new bill," she said.
A second change is that the
existing board has been re-
moved.
"When they created the
amendment, they stripped
people off the board," said
Toney.
The original board was
comprised of representatives
from zone area organizations
like Carrie P. Meek Entrepre-
neurial Center, the African


Heritage Cultural Arts Cen-
ter, Parent Teacher Associa-
tion presidents and local high
schools' Student Government
' Association presidents.
Bullard's lan-
guage would re-
place the current
board with Miami-
Dade County Com-
missioners.
"There's a lot less
community leader-
ship now, a lot less
organic leadership.
A lot of the organi-
zations with posi-
SH III tions on the board
already had a man-
date to serve Liber-
ty City, and they've
only reserved a few
spots for residents,"
said Toney. "This
effectively takes
the project from
the community and
further delays the
zone's potential
positive impact on
children," she said. BULL
Additionally, the
new bill renames
the project'(to the Magic City
Children's Cooperative), and'
relocates its headquarters
from the Belafonte Tacolcy
Center, 6161 Northwest Ninth
Avenue, into The Department
of Children and Families,
which Toney believes, attach-
es an unnecessary and nega-
tive stigma to the program.
When asked about the name
change, Toney says she knew
that it had to happen and in-
deed should have happened
sooner.
"The Harlem Children's'
Zone contacted us in the 2007


session, said Toney. They
wrote letters to us because
they have a trademark on the
name. We did know that that
issue was one that needed
to be addressed. In 2008, it
could have been changed be-
fore it was re-submitted, but
it was not."
The bill to which the lan-
guage has been attached
(Senate bill 1276) was origi-
nally sponsored by Rep. Nick
Thompson, R-Fort Myers,
and passed 37-0 on April 28.
The House voted 113-1 on
an amended companion bill
April 27.
State Rep. James Bush III
was the sole dis-
senting vote.
The bill was writ-
ten in response to
the case of a three-
year-old Cape Coral
boy who was fatally
beaten by his moth-
er's boyfriend two
years -ago. It would
give grandparents
ARD and other caregiv-
ers a greater say
in court proceed-
ings involving a child's care.
It would also give potential
foster and adoptive families
the ability to review case files
before they take the children
into their homes. For these

reasons, ,the bill is unlikely
to see a veto,, though Toney
would like to see that hap-
pen.
Bullard was unavailable to
comment, but in writing, has
defended the changes, tak-
ing-the position' that the $3.6
million would .have been re-
turned to general funds oth-
erwise.

FMU program diverts Black males from a prison path


Study shows Miami-Dade graduation

rate increased 10 percentage points


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite @miamitimesonline.com

Patricia LaSane is the mother
of twin boys.
As her sons were getting old-
er, LaSane, an educator of Mi-
ami-Dade Public Schools was
aware of the peer pressure that
young Black men were facing.
Although her sons were good
kids, LaSane and her husband
sought help to keep her kids on
a positive path.
"I was looking for a positive
entity for my children and out-
side help," she said.
With the help of a good friend,
LaSane was introduced to the
Black Male College Explorers
Program at Florida Memorial
University.
Throughout time, LaSane has
seen the "program reinforced
what we try to teach them at
home."
Her son, Ryan, runs track for
the university and her other


son, Bryan, is a counselor in
-the program.
"My sons have grown spiritu-
ally and emotionally as men.
They also matured in their
ways of reason," she said.
Black Male College Explor-
ers Program is an at-risk inter-
vention program intended for
young Black males.
The program targets middle
school or high school Black
males who are in grades 7th
-12th, have a history of behav-
ioral or disciplinary problems,
a desire to pursue a college ed-
ucation, have a interest in the
program or those who are in-
volved in a situation/problem
that makes them likely to be at
at-risk.
BMCE and a host of commu-
nity leaders monitor the stu-
dents throughout the school
year and provide a six weeks
learning opportunity as well as
engaging in the residential col-
lege life, during the summer.


High school and college in-
structors are available to teach
the young men in subjects that
include english, reading, social
studies, computer science, and
mathematics.
The goal of the program is to
help young Black men graduate
from high school. The gradua-
tion rate in Miami-Dade County
climbed more than 10 percent-
age points between 1995 and
2005; according to a recent ana-
tional -report.
So far, over 500 students,
from the program, have gradu-
ated high school and 98 percent
of the students have matricu-
lated to a college or university.
In light of the spree of'vio-
lence highlighted on the night-
ly news involving young Black
males throughout the County,
Kareem Coney, program di-
rector of the BMCE, remains
driven in helping the young
Black males and he is optimis-
tic about the future graduates
of the program.
"It is a reality and it's hap-
pening," said Coney. But he
notes, "One thing that we are
lacking is male role models and


emwm amoemm 0 0 00a -e m 4 mmbamNo- t 1





41 ~- --saw w 4L'-


a lack of opportunity."


BMEC offers opportunity and


mentorship with an array of
activities that include: person-
al developmental and planning
seminars, college orientation,
mentorship, motivational ac-
tivities and career exploration.
Coney believes that the pro-
gram exposes students to a
possibility of greatness which
he believes makes the program
a success.
"When they see something
great, they tend to gravitate to-
wards it," he said.
The increase of parental par-
ticipation also helps improve
the program. Currently, over
40 percent of parents are ac-
tively involved in BMCE.

9B THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 20-26, 2009


RI AICKS MTIST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY I


Do not forget who God is


What a state our country is
inI I know that some accuse
those who make that state-
ment to be causing a panic
among the people. However, it
is not causing panic by point-
ing out that unemployment is
at an all-time high. 'It is not
causing a panic by pointing
out that here in South Florida,


salaries are among the lowest
in the nation, yet housing ex-
penses are among the highest
in this country. Also, Florida
and Nevada have more fore-
closures than any of the other
states in this country. That's
not causing panic, those are
facts. Many Americans have
had to dip into retirement


funds just to pay the mortgage
and to buy groceries. Again,
these are facts.
But inciting panic would
mean believing that this situ-
ation is hopeless. Inciting
panic would mean believing
that there is nothing that can
be done to remedy the situ-
ation. Some believe that the
problems in this country are
a result of a sinful, disobedi-
ent nation. Even with that
belief, there is still no reason
for panic or feelings of despair.
2 Chronicles 7: 13 15 leave
no doubt that it still isn't over
until God says it's over. This
should be great news for the
believers. These verses should


make us start a revival! God
is saying, yes, He Who is God
and Lord of all, can surely al-
low famine, or a plague, or
any disaster that He chooses
to allow, but those of us who
are called by His name can
change these plans by hum-
bling ourselves, seeking His
face, and turning from our
wicked ways (repenting), and
praying, praying, praying
God has promised that
He will hear the prayers of
a people who have repented
and sought Him with humble
hearts. So many people. are
asking where is God? They
are asking where He is when
an entire town is flooded out,


wildfires are destroying neigh-
borhoods, and corruption and
greed is common place. My
answer to. that is the same
one that I gave after 9/11,
when so many asked that
same question. God was in
the same place on September
11 as He was on September
10, and on September 12. He
is the same God, and in the
same place as He was when
He spoke to the Israelites the
words in 2 Chronicles. He is
on His throne. He is still our
Sovereign Ruler. He is still
the Exalted Orie, and King of
all Kings, and the Lord of all
Lords. He was then, still is,
and will always be, All Mighty


and All Powerful! Don't de-
spair, dear friends. When we
look and act as if it's all over,
how can the world think oth-
erwise? Yes, I know many be-
lievers are also facing hard
trials such as unemployment,
foreclosure and failing mar-
riages. Read those verses in
2 Chronicles again and again
until it is strong in your spirit.
God has done and will contin-
ue to do His part, but we need
to do ours.
If you believe that you have
been lax in your duties as one
who is called by His name,
just ask Him for forgiveness
and get busy! We've got some
serious praying to do!

tirelessly along with the captains and age groups to
bring this day to fruition.

Capt. Barrington Irving visits Toussaint L'Ouverture Elementary


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com
Hundreds of students from
Toussaint L'Ouverture Ele-
mentary School in Little Haiti
welcomed Capt. Barrington
Irving at their annual Career
Day held in the school's caf-
eteria on May 13.
Irving encouraged the stu-
dents to stay focused on
their education and become
more advanced in the fields
of math and sciences which
are two tools that he says
has helped him in his jour-
ney around the world.
"I had to do my homework
and learn more about math
and science," he said. He con-
tinued, "I am not successful
because I am a brainiac but
I am an ordinary person who
lived my dreams."
At 23, Irving made histo-
ry by becoming the young-
est and first Black pilot to


fly solo around the world in
2007 with a plane costing al-
most $600,000.
The Jamaican born and
Miami Northwestern alum-
ni turned down a football
scholarship to the Univer-
sity of Florida to pursue a
career in aviation.
Last fall, after sixty stu-
dents who participated in
a 10-week "Build and Soar
Program" built a Zenith XL
aircraft called Inspiration
II, Irving test flied the plane
around the Opa-locka Air-
port.
The 26-year-old says he
has no regrets. Traveling
to Egypt, Greece and Sau-
dia Arabia, tasting the fin-
est cuisines throughout the
world, obtaining national
recognition and being intro-
duced to some of the most
notable people in America;
Irving believes he is living his
dream.


During the annual Career Day, Capt. Barrington Irving shares
his journey around the world with the students at Toussaint
L'Ouverture Elementary School on March 13.

From the desk of
Commissioner Dorrin D.
Rolle, he indicated that he has
worked diligently to improve
the quality of life ,in District
2 in spite of tough times.' It
can't be said any other way:
Times are rough. We are facing
one of the worst recessions
this country has seen in
years, and, .of course, South
Floridians are feeling the brunt
of the situation. He is aware
of the 'high unemployment
rate, foreclosures and the
many more issues everyone is
facing.
Yet, on the other side of
the coin, his administration
continues to: provide book
bags to the students, assist
seniors to claim tax dollars
at New Jerusalem Primitive.
Baptist Church, provide health
fairs to make the District
more aware of the Florida
Health Care Access Program
and -the annual Peppermint
Ball for senior citizens to
wear their formal attire and
enjoy themselves dancing and
dining.
Also, Rolle has helped the
youth in the flag football
as well as the sixth annual
Willis McGahee Tournament
featuring NFL players that took
the time to set up seminars
for football training and the
eighth annual .Rolle Bowl won
by The Gwen Cherry Bulls over
the Northwest Boys Falcons.

Kelly Rowland:
Bravo, may have said auf
wiedersehen to Project Runway
but it returns to the world of
fashion world with its latest
offering, The Fashion Show
(tonight, 10 p.m. ET).
The concept: Young designers
will compete to market and sell
their own lines. But, in a twist,
members of the studio audience
vote each week, determining,
who will continue on in the
competition. And the ultimate
winner will be determined by
home audiences after a live
season finale.
"I think what makes The
Fashion Show so unique is that
it's the people's decision, and not
only that but it's a real show for
real people," Kelly Rowland, who
cohosts the competition along
with designer Isaac Mizrahi and
Fern Mallis, says on a recent
conference call. (Malis is the


Fashion show is a 'Real Show for Real People'


creator of New York Fashion
Week and a familiar figure to
Project Runway viewers.) "This
is coming from the consumer's
point of view what they like,
how it fits, how creative it is."
"The real truth is that no
matter how fabulous any
fashion show is, it doesn't
matter if people don't wear and
buy the clothes," Mallis says.
Working with a cast of 15
up and coming designers
on creating marketable and
relatable designs was an eye-
opener, and, at times, trying
challenge for the judges.
"I learned a great deal from
hearing what the public had
to say about clothes," Mizrahi
says. "Sometimes Kelly, Fern
and I would say, 'Oh, this is
going to be in the Top 20 and
then we'd be shocked when it
wasn't."


"One of the most difficult parts
for me [is] when you're standing
in a room with designers who
are clearly making mistakes and
there's nothing you're allowed
to say until the end," Mizrahi
continues.
"Yeah, he wanted to help them


the whole time," Rowland adds.
"And Kelly wanted to say, like,
'I wouldn't wear that on a bet,'"
Mizrahi says. "Or 'I love that.'
And she couldn't."
Each week, the designers will
compete in a mini-challenge
and then continue on to an
elimination challenge which will
feature a specific task -- and a
guest judge. (Celebrity judges
include designers Charlotte
Ronson, Elie TahariandVivienne
Tam.) Their designs will be then
be judged by a studio audience
following a runway show where
someone will be eliminated. -
"The whole live audience
part of it, I feel like made it so
dramatic," Mizrahi says. "There
was Kelly reading things to
these contestants, like '60% 'of
the audience thinks that your
dress looks like the inside of a
wig.'"

Former investment banker teaches students in Miami-Dade on how to manage their money


Al Reynolds: From Star to FMU professor


By Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com
Four days a week, Al Reyn-
olds finds himself in a classroom
at Florida Memorial University
teaching courses -in leadership
and personal finance.
Reynolds, a former investment
banker, says the opportunity fell
on his lap two years ago from a
friend who was also a professor at
FMU.
"My mother was a teacher. I
enjoy teaching in the classroom
especially in an area that I love,"
he said. "Besides, it is important
that I give back to the community


by teaching at a historically Black
college that is 130-years-old."
It's a huge transition for the Vir-
ginia native and once husband to
former co-host of the ABC week-"
day morning talk show, The View,
Star Jones.
Being married to Jones, Reyn-
olds was constantly in the public
eye.
Jones and Reynolds held a
much-publicized wedding Saint
Bartholomew's Church in New
York City with almost 500 people
in attendance in 2004.
But after the controversial di-
vorce last year, Reynolds says
that he never considered himself


a celebrity.
"I never embraced the title.. I feel
like I am just like everybody," he
said.
Since the divorce, Reynolds has
had little conversation with his,
wife.
Reynolds said that he was still
married to Jones when he started
teaching at FMU which gave him
no preferential treatment on the
campus.
His visit to Miami turned into a
stay.
"I love the weather in South
Florida," said Reynolds.
In his spare time, Reynolds
loves to visit the sandy beaches


of South Florida but his passion
remains in numbers and helping
the young people of today.
He is the -foundery and CEO of
the Champion Advisors, a non-
profit financial education and
literacy organization. Reynolds
holds seminars and expos on
how individuals can expand their
wealth and offer strategies that
teach people to maintain financial
and personal success.
Reynolds previously was a Se-
nior Financial and Relationship
Advisor with Merrill Lynch, where
he worked within the Company's
Global Private Client Group.

L.S. retail sales drop in April


County Commissioner

provides summer jobs

Miami-Dade Commissioner Audrey M. Edrmon-
son and South Florida Workforce are joining forces
to offer students the opportunity to register with the
South Florida Workforce for information on job pros-
pects. The event will take place at the Joseph Caleb
Center, 5400 NW 22 Avenue, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.,
on Thursday, May 21.
Interested youth can attend the drive and submit
their information in the South Florida Workforce da-
tabase on site. If they are eligible for employment,
applicants will be contacted by the South Florida
Workforce and matched with a potential employer.
The ideal candidate is between 14-24 years of age,
is a resident of Miami-Dade or Monroe counties, is
a citizen or eligible to work in the United States, and
qualifies as low income.
'"We have so many young people in our commu-
nity who are trying to find employment to get them
through school, help their families, or just get by in
this tough economy," said Commissioner Edmonson.
"I commend the South Florida Workforce for provid-
ing these young men and women with a tremendous
opportunity for the summer."
For more information, contact Commissioner Ed-
monson's office at 305-636-2331, or visit www.south-
fioridaworkforce.com.


Black unemployment

climbs up to percent
The nation's unemployment rate soared from 8.5
percent to 8.9 percent last month the highest jobless
rate since 1983. However, the burden of lost jobs fell
primarily upon Blacks. The Black unemployment rate
jumped from 13.3 percent in March to 15 percent in
April.
At the same time, joblessness among whites showed
only a modest increase rising from 7.9 percent to 8.0
percent and the Hispanic unemployment picture actually
improved. In March 11.4 percent of those looking for
jobs could not find them. However, in April, Hispanic
unemployment fell slightly to 11.3 percent.
Overall, 539,000 Americans lost jobs last month. The
increase brought total unemployment to1 13.7 million
people. The Labor Department's Bureau of Labor
Statistics also reported virtually no increase in weekly
earnings. In March, the average person earned $614.20
a week. In April that figure rose to $614.53 a week.
High levels of poverty coupled with high rates of
unemployment show that the impact of recession on
those communities are not temporary but will be felt for
years to come.
Black men have the highest unemployment rate at
17.3 percent followed closely by Latino men at 12.9
percent. The unemployment rate for Black families
is more than double the rate of white families (8.0
percent compared to 3.3 percent). And among single
women heads of households, Black women have an
unemployment rate of 11.7 percent, followed by Latino
women at 8.7 percent.

Reynolds says fiscal

literacy is crucial

TEACH
continued from 5D
There, he handled over $350 million in client
assets and net worth and was accountable for
all aspects of client development, financial plan-
ning and investing. Reynolds also managed and
organized Financial Education seminars that
discussed vital issues that included Financial
Planning, Valuation and Asset Protection. Dur-
ing his tenure as a Marketing Manager with War-
ner-Lambert, Inc., Reynolds built and initiated
the consumer education programs explaining the
Warner-Lambert's health and wellness initiatives
on behalf of the Black and Hispanic communi-
ties.
Additionally, he is a board member of Hale
House in N.Y. and The Champion Charitable
Fund.
Believing it is crucial for the next generation,
Reynolds continues to educate young people
on financial literacy. He has traveled to several
,schools in Miami-Dade as well as Jacksonville
educating young people on money management
especially during a recession that has caused
layoffs and companies to shut down throughout
the country.
Learning about money was not an opportunity
given to Reynolds as youth so he believes that
ybung people will benefit.
"I lived a very meager childhood," he said. "No
one taught us how to manage our money when
we were in high school."
A long road from the celebrity spotlight but he
admits that he has moved on and is looking for-
ward to a positive future.
"I want do some financial commentary. Hope-
fully, I will have a family and raise a 'Little Al,"
he said jokingly.

Local parents successfully complete computer program


Fifty families whose
sons participate in
Miami Dade County
Public Schools' 5000
Role Models of Excel-
lence, spearheaded
by State Sen. Freder-
ica Wilson, graduated
from the months of
computer training at


Mt. Calvary Mission-
ary Baptist Church
in Liberty City on
Thursday.
The parents were
trained by school of-
ficials and received
help of their Role
Model sons.
In addition to the


parents receiving a
graduation ceremony
that featured, special
guest by newly-elect-
ed North Miami City
Clerk Alix Desulme,
actress JoMarie Pay-
ton and Role Model
Lt. Joseph Schillaci,
graduates also re-


ceived a Dell desk-
top computer, printer
and a variety of soft-
ware.
Rhonda Orr was
one of the recipients.
"I am so proud and
grateful of the oppor-
tunity to be a part of
this program," she


said.
Living in a society of
digital divide, Payton
encouraged the par-
ents to take advan-
tage of the resources
available online that
can help them and
their children which
include taking class-


es and using the tu-
torial programs.
"You can do so
much with a comput-
er," she said.
During the course
of the program, the
parents took an in-
ternet safety course
called "Parental Por-


tal" which gives them
parental access to
various internet sites
on their computer.
* Though there are
benefits to the inter-
net, Schillaci, who
has starred on televi-
sion series, The First
48, reminded parents


of the possible dan-
gers of the internet
that they should be
aware of.
"You have to moni-
tor your children and'
know exactly what
they are doing on-
line," he said. "This is
our next generation."
