Gerard Jean-Juste

dies in Miami at 62

The Haitian community mourns

the lost of a well-known priest
By Sandra J.,Charite .- .
schante @meamitimesonline.com
The South Florida Hai-
tian community have beep
saddened by the death
of Haitian Roman Catho-
lic priest, Gerard Jean-
Juste.
"His spirit was obvious
that he was God sent.
We have to continue his
legacy to provide equality
for all people," said City of .
Miami Michelle Spence-
Jones.
Jean-Juste, 62, died of
a stroke last week in Mi- GERARD JEAN-JUSTE
ami.
"Father Jean-Juste devoted his life to fight injustice, pov-
erty and he was a voice for the voiceless. His legacy will con-
tinue with generations yet unborn," said North Miami City
Clerk Alix Desulme.
Born in Cavaillon, Haiti, Jean-Juste traveled to Canada
to study to become a priest. In the 1970s, he was the first
Haitian ordained in the United States at a special ceremony
at the Church of St. Avila in Brooklyn, N.Y. where he served
as a deacon.
Jean-Juste continued his studies while working at the Ca

CORAL PLACE

Rent hikes, hidden fees

Resident refuses to leave

despite the added fees
BV Tariq Osborne
rosborne @miamitimesodine.com
Edna Addison was skeptical when she first saw her new
eighth floor apartment in the new Coral Place apartment build-
ing on Northwest 54* Street.
"It seemed so small at first," said Addison, "but once I moved
my furniture in and set it up, I loved it. My daughter convinced
me. She explained to me that they're not building sideways any-
more, these days they're building up.",
The apartment building was designed for those aged 55 and
above. Most of the residents are on a fixed income.
Addison signed a one-year lease in December, in which she
agreed to pay $632 per month in rent for a one-bedroom apart-
ment. This price is advertised on the building's web site as well-
Addison's rental payments in the past six months have aver-
aged at least $90 more.
Addison expected no additional fees. She did not ask for
a washing machine or dryer in her apartment, but she has
both-to the tune of $45 a month. She has asked to have them
removed, but says she was told that they cannot be removed

don't make a right. Torturing--
and that's what it is--torthring
anyone is strong the way I see it.
Besides, you could do that and
then find out maybe later that
there was another way to get
what you needed.

DUANE LOCKHARDT, 40
Vendor, Miami

No, it's not
acceptable .
Not even to
save some-
one else's life.
Would you like C
to be tortured?
I'd probably
tell you any-
thing if I were
being tortured. Most people
would confess to anything or tell
you anything to get you to stop.
There's no way of knowing what-
ever information you get is the
truth so you might be torturing
someone for no reason.

nation you need to save lives,
and not getting that information's
going to cost lives, then you've got
to get it out of them. It's not a real
pleasantthingbuttheyshouldn't
have been involved iri that kind of
stuff to be in that situation.

TAMEIKA STEPHENS, 20
Student, Liberty City

No, you can
call it enhanced
or whatever, but
that's still tor-
ture. I feel that '
they have the y .
right to speak
whenever they
feel like it. They
should get reg-
ular trials and go to jail if they're
criminals, but not be tortured for
information. You don't even know
if they have any information any-
way. Definitely not.
ADRIEL JONES, 19
Student, Miami


Yes, it's all =
acceptable if -'
you're trying to ;
save peoples'
lives. It's im-
portant not to .
go too Sir, but
it's more im-
portant to stop '
them from killing and harming
people. If there were information
that could have prevented some-
one you knew from getting hurt or
killed, I think you'd do whatever
you had to do to get it.


No. Whatever
youcallitthat's
torture and this
is America. 's
We should be
above that kind F
of stuff. When .
you talk about
torture, you're
putting us on the level of commu-
nists. They were good for that. We
are the United States. We should
have a higher standard.


DENELL GADSON, 21

saving lives. .

have any oth-

of time, I think
so. I really think
it depends on

month. Edmonds says she
has sought help, and was told
that there was little that could
be done for her because the
building is privately owned.
"But even if it's not privately
owned it's not fair to break
the lease," she said. "These
people are charging us un-
necessarily; they just do what
they want to do."
"How can people pay that?"
she asked. "We're supposed
to be on a fixed income." Ed-
monds is, currently seeking
Section 8. She fears she may
have to leave the building.
Despite the rent increase,
Addison is digging in.
"I'm not moving," she. said
going into a list of her loca-
tion's virtues. "The place is


egnvenient for me. My doctor
is just down the road. I have
my Miami-Dade bus card I'm
right across from the bus stop.
If I want to go to Burger King
or Popeye's or something, I
can walk over there. When
I got my social security last
year, I saved it to move into
this apartment. So I'm stay-
ing," she said.
Addison recalls first con-
peiving the idea of getting an
apartment there. "We were at
the Martin Luther King day
parade route, and I told my


April 27, Addison's new base,
rent will be $662. This will
bring her total to $747 per
month after fees.
"They told me they had to
keep raising the rent because
of the convenience of the
area," she said. "But this was
the last building to go up. This
area was updated before they
even started building."
Addison has voiced her con-
cerns to the building's altaff,.
to little effect.
"The person in the offices
. asked 'you don't have anybody
to help you?"', she alleges.
"But I don't have anybody to
help me, I live alone. My kids
have their own lives to live,
they can't send me their mon-
ey, and I don't want t6 burden


my family with anything like
this," she said.
Evelyn Edmonds also signed
a one-year lease last Decem-
ber. In an interview with The
Miami Times, she voiced simi-
lar complaints.
"They told us all kind of lies,
and after you get in there, it
all changed," she said. Ed-
monds was told that they
could remoire the washing
machine and dryer from her
apartment, but only after the
lease is up. "But if they can
raise my rent, why can't they
take out the machine?" asked
Edmonds.
Like Addison, Edmonds is
on a fixed income, and the
rent increase and fees force
her to stretch her budget each


sister, I'm gonna get one of
those apartments, and I want
the highest floor they've got."
Addison's apartment is in-
deed on the building's eighth
and highest floor. She still
admires the view. "But now I
feel bad about this," she says.
"They got us in, there, and
then they're doing this here.
You read one thing, and then
when you move in it's some-
thing different. It's sad."
Coral Place's management
did not respond to repeated
calls for comment.


CORAL PLACE
continued from 1A

because the building would
have no place to store them.
Another bill, her cable fee, is
not optional either. The ca-
ble was pre-installed, com-
ing from a satellite dish on
the roof of the building. This
means that were she to dis-
connect, her television would
enot work at all. .
The hidden fees are not the
worst of the situation, accord-
ing to Addison. Beginning on
June 1 her base rent is to be
increased as well. The rent
hike comes six-months into a
One-year lease.
According to a letter ad-
dressed to Addison and dated


FLIGHTLINE
continued from 1A

Flightline's four partners, ac-
cuses Southwell of deliberately
misrepresenting the issue.
"We withheld payment from
the county Robinson said.
"But there. are two separate
leases. Southwell is talking
about our 15 undeveloped
acres. We were being charged
approximately $6,000 per
month on that land, then they
turned around and transferred
the land to AA Acquisitions,
giving them the right to devel
op on land that was promised
to us."
Robinson says the land for
which the county is attempting
to charge Flightline is paved
over, and too close to the run-
ways to be developed. "Why
should I pay for something
that I can't develop?" asked
Robinson in an interview. Rob-
inson claims that this is part
ofa larger strategy to drain the
company of financial resources
before litigation. -
"The courity never had any
intention of negotiating with
us," said Robinson "Had we
continued paying, we'd have
paid in excess of $200,000 by
now and still not been able to
develop anything."
Robinson claims this is not
the first time his company has
been given the runaround from
Miami Dade County. "We went


through this same exercise once
before, back June 2007," said
Robinson. In June of 2007, we
gave the county a check for ap-
proximately $34,000. We had
withheld payment for nearly
six months. The County told
us that we would have a devel-
opment lease within a month.
According to Robinson, the
lease has still not material-
ized.
"Where we are right now in
this building;, we are current
in our lease," said Robinson.
"They just don't want us out
here. Remember, I'm a former
City Manager, so I know what
it's like when bureaucrats
start lying," he said.
Commissioner; Jordan
claims that the company's al-
leged delinquency places her
in a difficult situation where
negotiations are concerned.
"It puts them ih a whole dif-
ferent category," -she said.
"We're not supposed to nego-
tiate anything. When they get
to that point, we're supposed
to start formal procedures."
Southwell denies any charg-
es that Opa-Locka Flight-
line has been discriminated
against. "The notion that any-
body's being treated unfairly
here is simply false," he said.
"I'm perplexed by it of course
because the people at this air-
port have worked very hard to
help them. The two principles
on this case, myself and Greg


Owens [Director of Real Estate
Management] are Black, so I
don't see how you can make
that charge." Owens could not
be reached for comment.
Southwell says the firm's
delinquency, in fact, has given
Flightline a de-facto advan-
tage. ,
"The challenge for us; and
the one rule of the airport, is
to make sure that there's a
level playing field for all of the
tenants. When you have ten--
ants who are paying environ-
mental insurance and paying
rent, it is difficult for them to
succeed against tenants that
are not," he said.
He continued, "Now there
are a number of tenants com-
plaining of favoritism, includ-
ing one from the .justice de-
partment. We have a number
of Hispanic tenants complain-
ing that they are being dis-
criminated against."
Jordan says that despite
these factors, she would like
to aid Opa-Locka Flightline,
but that the major issue is the
management's intractability.
"If they show any willingness
at all, if they'd just give me a
call, I'd be more than willing
to expedite it. But there isn't
much I can do unless they
take the initiative and say
'this is what we want to do.'
So far they refuse to do it,"
she said. "I'd bring AA Acqui-
sitions, County Aviation, and


Flightline to the table together,
and I'd be willing to stay there
until we came up with some~
thing solid. But they have to
be reasonable and show some
willingness."
AA Acquisitions holds the
lease to the land where Flight-
line sits.
Eric Greenwald, Executive
Vice President of AA Acqui-
sitions said that despite the
pending litigation, AA Acqui-
sitions would still be willing
to work with Flightline toward
an amicable resolution. '
Now, before I can sit down
with them or AA or anyone,"
Jordan continued, "I need
to get legal clearance. I'd be
working hard to try to keep
them orit there. I absolutely
prefer to keep them out there
if at all possible."
Both Jordan and South-
well say they regret that the
issue has come to litigation.
"Using the bully pulpit of the
media, a law firm and activist
groups doesn't get you where
you want to go, what it does is
throw a whole bunch of other
hurdles that you don't need
to have in front of you," said
Jordan.
Southwell expressed similar
sentiments. "Much of how it
plays out depends upon the
.actions of Flightline," he said.
"I say that because I know
that we have done all we can
to help them."

Broward County Schools teach-
er, Jannette Thompson-Irwin, was
named the 2009 Florida School-
Related Employee of the Year last
month by the State Board of Edu-
cation and Education Commission-
er Dr. Eric J. Smith. Thompson-Ir-
win received the award for her ex-
ceptional work at Pompano Beach
Middle School, where she serves
not only as Confidential Office
Manger, but also serves as nurse,
counselor and community liaison,
Thompson-Irwin was chosen as
Broward's Non-Instructional $'in-
ployee of the Year in December. As
Florida School-Related Employee of
the Year, she was awarded $1,000
check from the Department of Edu-
cation.
According to Pompano Beach
Middle School Principal Sonja Bra-


ziel, "Mrs. Thompson-Irwin is not
only the office manager. She is a
nurse when students need medi-
cine and a counselor when anyone
needs a listening ear. She is en-
deared by the entire staff for her
ability to successfully organize, co-
ordinate and motivate others. She
extends herself to our school com-
munity with warmth and compas-
sion that is noticed by everyone."
Thompson-Irwin, who has spent
the past 14 years at Pompano
Beach Middle School, provides a
wealth of services that exceed her
given responsibilities. She exer-
cises an empathetic and accommo-
dating demeanor when interacting
with students, parents, teachers
and school staff and, as a result,
has been her school's Employee of
the Year for the last three years.

marry a girl from a lower class family, police reported Sun-
day.
* After unsuccessfully petitioning his father for two years to
marry thq girl, the man heated up a knife and sliced off his

The young man came from a prominent family in the
southern Egyptian province of Qena, one of Egypt's poorest

ancient Egyptian ruins of Luxor.

GM bankruptcy problem for UAW


active workers and being the fi-
duciary of the multibilliohidol-
lar VEBA could create ten-
sion. "If you own a large portion
of a company, dbes this affect
your ability to strike or your de-
sire to strike?" Chaison asked.
"Do you look at your members'
compensation as a labor cost?
It's a totally different perspec-
tive."
In 1995, the UAW, United
Steelworkers and Internation-
al Association of Machinists
announced their intention to
merge. But the complex issues
involved proved too difficult,
. and it never happened.
Leo Gerard, president of the
steelworkers union, said he still
would be open to such a deal. "I
was for it then, and I would be
for it now."


$1BILLIONASSETS
'I'he UAW did not answer a
request for comment.
If the UAW has taken hits, it
still has major resources, in-
cluding a skilled staff and as-
sets of more than $1 billion,
according to its 2008 federal
report.
It also has potent allies in
the Obama administration to
help soften the harshest de-
mands of management and
bondholders in restructur-
ing.
It also has members that
understand the situation,
Chaison said. "That's critical-
ly important. You can't claim
that concessions are being
foisted on them by a company
that's really doing well. Those
days are over.".


Lose o members ma cause merger7


A new reality looms for UAW
in GM bankruptcy .
By John Gallagher, Detroit
Free Press
Facing declining membership
and ever more demands forecon
sessions, the UAW may need to
merge with another union to re-
main viable, according to labor
relations experts.
From a peak of 1.5 trillion
members in the late 1970s,
UAW membership dropped to
431,000 at the ,end of 2008.
And there continue to be major
job cuts this year.
"A responsible union leader
would at least have to 'explore
the idea of merger with another
union," said Richard -Block, a


professor of labor relations at
Michigan State University. .
Merger or not, the uilion will
have to evolve after General Mo-
. tors' (GM) restructuring.
PROTECTOR OF RETIREES
Gary Chaison, professor ofin-
dustrial relations at Clark Uni-
versity in Worcester, Mass., said
UAW retirees will gain influence.
Under the GM recovery plan,.a
union-run retiree health care
trust fund, known as a VEBA
would own /a big chunk of G
stock. "Essentially, the UAW
has gone from being a bargain-
ing agent to being a protector of
retirees.',
That dual role representing

Whether they were the min-
ister, who preached at the fu-
neral; a mother who buried
her son; or a woman who sat
on her couch )watching the
evening news to hear about
the latest violence that oc-
curred in Miami's urban
streets; they were there to
share their voice.
Organized by W.A.I.V.V.E.,
Zion Hope Missionary Baptist
Church, located in Allapat-
tah, filled up on May 23 with
women who were tired of the
senseless violence that had
invaded the Miami streets
leaving bullet holes and
young dead bodies,
"If I have to march to Wash-
ington then'I will to get these
guns off the streets," said
Tangela Graham, a mother
whose son was a victim to
violence.
Derrick Gloster, Graham's
son, was one of the two boys
that was shot and killed in
the January massive shoot-


ing in Liberty City.
Gloster was Graham's.only
son.
"I don't want to see another
dead child," said Graham.
Irma Williams too agreed.
Willliams's nephew, Rod,
was killed in 2007 and his
body laid in a dumpster for
days. decomposing. The lost
of her nephew scarred her but
motivated Williams to change
her life after battling a drug
addiction. She is now two-
years and two-months clean
but without her nephew who
she was given to care for after
the death of her sister.
"Rod was a good boy. 1VIoth-
ers cannot continue bury-
ing their sons for senseless
things," she said-
Though it seemed easy to
point the blame on the guns,
the women believed that par-
enting skills was needed to
help raise the young men.
Graham said that she
wished that someone had
taught her how to be a par-
ent.
Queen Brown believed that
the lack of parenting skills is

the cause overwhelming vio-
lence in the community that
has led to the death of many
young men,
"My son died because of an-
Other kid," she said.
Brown's son, Eviton, 24,
was shot and killed when the


car he was sitting in was pep-
pered with bullets. The former
Miami Norland High School
star athlete had enrolled at
Florida A8sM University.
"Our kids are watching
'us," said Brown. "It's about
parenting. Family is a basic


training and institution that
teaches you how to go into
the word."
Though she agreed with
Graham's walk to Wash-
ington, she added, "Before
we bring President Barack
Obama to Miami, our house


needs to be in order."
Brown continued, "We have
to be concerned with all of out
children not just the ones we
birth. We need to do a com-
munity assessment before we
go to Washington or do any-
thing."

Don't sit and sulR because
nothing appears to be happen-
ing. Don't remain wallowing in
your pity party because your
sister in Sunday School class
was tapped by the Pastor to be-
gin a new ministry. Don't get
discouraged because your fel-
low student in Seminary was
just selected as Pastor of a mega
church, and you are still serving
as the Youth Pastor of a small
congregation. Tarry means to
wait, and keep waiting, and
Habakuk must have taken his
advice because in chapter 3,
though nothing seemed to be
happening for him, Habakuk
said that he would still delight
in the Lord, who was the joy of
his salvation. Keep waiting on
the Lord.


tire nation of people. Just as
God could have decided to not
allow Queen Esther to be kid-
napped, and held against her
will, He could have intervened
in Joseph's kidnapping as well,
But the momentary discomfort
of these two allowed millions of
lives to be saved. They were in
the perfect place to accomplish
a great task.
Psalm 1: 3 says that a righ-
teoxis, obedient person stands
firm waiting for fruit to be
yielded in its season. Every-
thing has a season. King Solo-
mon wrote about this in Eccle-
siastes 3. Every activity has a
season. No human is a child
forever. No child will spent
their entire life in elementary
school. A seed will not remain


a seed forever. Either it will
grow into a plant or tree, or it
will die. Even if you have been
expecting something to take
place, and you have been spiri-
tually pregnant so long that
you feel you are way overdue,
hold on. Things can change
for you in an instant. Be ready
to receive all that God has for
you. God told the prophet Ha-
bakkuk 2:2-3 to, "write the vi-
sion" down. Have you written
your vision down where you
can pray about it and keep it
before you?
Then God told Habakuk that
'though the vision may tarry, it
will surely come to pass.' He
also said that the person with
the vision should run with it.
To run means to keep moving.


received favor from his jailers
and was placed in a prominent
position yes, in jail. After Jo-
seph interpreted a vision of the
king, he was given a high posi-
tion in the king's court.
Again because of the favor
of God and man, Joseph used
this position to save a nation of
people, including his own fami-
ly. It didn't happen right away.
He served a heathen employee;
he languished in a heathen
jail. But he persevered. He did
not give up. He continued to
serve God, and he prayed for,
and served man. God could
have exalted and promoted
Joseph while he was at home
with his adoring father. But
Joseph would not have been, in
a position there to serve an en-


eleven older brothers, Joseph
was sold by them to mercantile
traders. Joseph spent years as
first a slave, then a pnsoner.
But the Bible tells us that as
a slave, Joseph stood on the
principles of God. He refused
to sleep with his boss's wife
when she attempted to seduce
him. This landed him in pris-
on, and while there he contin-
ued to pray and serve God. He


Last week I wrote about vi-
sions that seem to be taking
a long time to come to pass. I
wrote about Queen Esther, who
'trained' for years before being
plucked up by God to save a
nation of people. I also want to
remind you of Joseph.
Joseph was the favored son
of the patriarch of his time of
the nation of Israel. However,

Black women are nearly three
times as likely as white women to
have a vitamin D deficiency, which
is linked with an increased risk
of the vaginal infection bacterial
vaginosis, according to a study
published in the June issueof the
Journal of Nutrition, the New Yoric
Times reports. Black tromen pos-
sibly have lower levels of vitamin
D because the higher amount of
pigment in their skin prevents the
body from absorbing the vitamin.
For the study, researchers led
by Lisa Bodnar, an assistant pro-
fessor of epidemiology at the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh, examined
209 white pregnant women and
260 Black pregnant women at a
Pitt.sburgh clinic. The study found
that majority of the women had
low levels of vitamin D. Women
whose vitamin D levels were 50
nanomoles or less had a 26 per-
cent increased.risk of BV, while
women whose vitamin levels were
less than 20 nanomoles had a 65
percent increased risk of the in~
fecTtt n.study found nearly 52
percent of Black women had the
infection, compared with 27 per-
cent of white women.
The study also found that 93
percent of women with BV had
low vitamin D levels and that BV
prevalence decreased as vitamin
levels increased.
In addition, although Black
women were more expected to
have BV, white women who had
low levels of vitamin D were as
likely to have the infection as

Black women. Poor diets and
obesity also contributed to a vi-
tamin deficiency. Bodnar noted
that Black women lare less likely
than white womeil to meet di-
etary recommendations for vi-
tamin D. Bodnar recommended
that wornen discuss their level of
vitamin D with their physicians
and that pregnant women take a
prenatal vitamin, which typically


includes vitamin D.
According to the Pittsburgh
Post-Gazette, Bodnar's research
team has received NIH funding
to conduct a study of whether
vitamin D deficiency in women
increases the risk of poor birth
outcomes and whether high in-
fant mortality among Blacks can
be attributed to factors such as
obesity.

refugees, fighting against dis-
crimination by local govern-
ment and immigration laws.
"He was always a voice to
the people," said Rev. Fr. Regi
nam a chNot e me

t1e Haiti. "He was a fighter for
the cause of justice who kept
his commitment to be on the
side of the people who were in
need."
His fight for equality also
brought criticism.
Jean-Juste received much
criticism from the archdiocese
of Miami for holding funeral
services for Haitians who had
lost their life at sea while try-
ing to get to the land of oppor-

tuB throughouttimeJean-
Juste remained faithful to his
homeland. .
He returned to Haiti in 1991
in the midst of the divisive
politics that resulted in the
ousting of the newly-elected
President Jean-Bertrand Aris-
tide. Jean-Juste went into
hiding until the reemergence
of Aristide into office in 1994.
He continued his work at the
Church of Ste. Claire where
he managed a soup kitchen
to the feed the less. fortunate
individuals.
Aristide was ousted again
in 2004 and Jean-Juste was
later arrested twice facing
charges in connection to the
death of a journalist, Jacques
Roche.
The charges was later
dropped but he was held on
lesser charges that involved
weapons possession and
criminal conspiracy.
He was diagnosed with leu~
kemia in 2005 and was re-


leased from prison in 2006 to
begin treatment at a Miami
hospital. -
Rev. Jean-Mary, who has
knew Jean-Juste for over 15
years, recalls Jean-Juste vis-
its to the prominently Haitian
church.
"When I came to Miami, I
was impressed of the commit-
ment of Jean Juste," he said.
"When he was town, he greet-
ed us ,and prayed with the
congregation. He understood
the spirit of brotherhood with-
m in the community."
He continued, "His spirit will
live on in the Haitian commu-
nity and in Haiti. People feel
that they lost a brother or a
prophet.
Known for being an advo-
cate for Haitians in the United.
States, Jean-Juste leaves a
lasting legacy.
"I feel so blessed to have
known him. I am just realizing
how h II amyingo hwe Innoa

these giants," said
Community Activist and At"
tourney Karen Andre.
State Sen. Frederica Wil-
son, who first met the notable
priest in the early 80's, de-
fined^ Jean-Juste as being a
"fighter" and an "unparalleled
crusader."
"He was a leader whose loss
will be felt. forever and whose
shoes can never be filled," she
said.

DoM DD OUC'ommis one
following statement about
Jean-Juste: "The death of the
Reverend Gerard Jean-Juste
has left our Haitian commu-
nity beset with grief. I had
the pleasure of knowing and
working with Reverehd Jean-
Juste in his quest to fight for
the rights of Haitian nation-
als looking for a better life in
the United States and helping
the poor here in Miami. Never
have I met a man so dedicated
to upholding our basic human
rights and being a voice for
many who had none."
Jean-Ju#te funeral will be
held at the Notre Dame d'Haiti
Catholic Church, located at
130 N. E. 62nd St. in Little
Haiti, at 11 a.m., Saturday,
June 6.

these 'knuckle heads,"' said
Jackson in an interview last
week.
He added, "I was excited
to see the excitement in the
young men who were dressed
in (heir white shirts and ties

the lack of news coverage for
young men who were mak-
ing a mark in their commu-
nity."

and never give up to

It was an evening filled with
excitement, soft music, and
an opportunity to observe
the extravaganza involved in
the serving of the meal with
pompous music.


Founder of the 5000 Role
Models of Excellency Project,
State Sen. Frederica S. Wilson,
was overwhelmed with tears last
month, each tuned she faced
her graduating Role Models to
address them for completing the
program. And, of course, they
spent a morning at the Miami-
Dade School Board building in
a program: "Apprentice to Work
Day", where Superintendent of
Schools Alberto Carvalho chal-
lenged them, along with moti-
vational speaker and television
Star, Lt. Joseph Schillaci. Last
Friday, at Adrienne Arsht Cen-
ter for the Performing Arts, the
graduates were given some pow-
erful words by Robert Jack-
son. The motivational speaker
and author, "No More Excuses:
Black Men Stand Upl"
Producer Pamela Jones,
stage manager Melody Delasic-
ey, and other staff members
transformed the room into a
palace likened to that of The
Academy. Life-sized red and
black ties were mounted on
the wall; reserved setting was
roped off for the 48 Role Models
of Excellence, while Pam and
Melody interchanged between
the line of march on the outside
and the comfort of the parents
that filled the program room.
Wilson began the program
in tears as she briefly indicat-
ed how much she is going to
miss her young boys and before
bringing on her emeee, Attorney
James Swain. She informed the
Role Models ofa surprise which
would be given at the end of the
program.
Swain introduced the second
emcee, Vernon Martin, who is
the director of Student Activi-
ties at Florida Memorial Univer-
sity.
During the program, Wil-
son was called up to.present a
plaque to the erncees and James


Farnngton, who
contributes to the
scholarship fund
annualiv. Followed
by Bishop Joseph
E. Watson, pastor
of United Christian Fellowship
Ministries, gave the invocation.
Cafidia Stuart, a studelit at
Miami High School,.sang "Hero"
to the delight of staff, students
from Miami High and her fa-
ther. She received a standing
ovation for the timely rendition,
followed by Wilbert "Tee" Hol-
loway brought greetings from
the School Board and Keith
Butler, from the Of-
fice of Miami-Dade
Mayor Carlos Alvarez.
A presentation of the
honor cords was done
and arithor Rev. Abra- -
ham Thomas sang "If I
Could Help Spmebody,
Than My Living Will
Not Be In Vain". Ev- WILS
eryone was touched.by
the words he substi-
tuted for the graduates. .
Everyone was on the edge of
their seats whed Wilson took
to the microphone to introduce
the keynote speaker and former
miming back with the Minne-
sota Vikings, Robert Jackson.
He stirred up the crowd before
getting into his recent published
book and received several ap-
plauses for his comments, es-
pecially, challenging the young
men not to become illegal phar-
macies in the neighborhood and
disobey their parents, while liv-
ing in their homes. He alluded
to his single parent mother and
. the some of the illegal things he
did to against his mother's will.
He concluded by telling the
young men he did not straight-
en his live out until he got to
Western Kentucky.

clouded the hit, "The Thrill is
Gone."
As King walked off stage,
Domino greeted him with a
hug.
"It's good to see you my
friend," King told Domino. "Did
you bring ine some gumbo?"
The concert ran more than
four hours and included per-
formances by Chuck Berry,
WyclefJean, Keb' Mo' and Ju-
nior Brown. Comedian-actor
Tracy Morgan, best known
for his work on the TV shows
"Saturday Night Live" and "30
Rock," also performed.
Proceeds from the event
are earmarked for "Operation
Kids," a program run through
Saints quarterback Drew
Brees' foundation to improve
the city's parks and schools.
Brees attended the concert
with wife, Brittany, and doz-
ens of the couple's closest
friends and family. All got to
meet Domino.
Domino has been living in
Harvey since Katrina struck
in 2005, flooding his home


in the Lower 9th Ward neigh-
borhood..Still, Domino enjoys
visiting his publishing house,
an extension of his old home.
The studio is a classic shot-
gun double built in the 1930s
that was rebuilt after Katrina.
It is one of a few refurbished
structures in the neighbor-
hood, which still has blocks of
abandoned homes and over-
grown lots.
Brees said he was grateful


such pioneering musicians
could help his foundation reach
its goal of raising $1.8 mil-
lion in two years to rebuild the
city's parks, schools and play
spaces the things needed to
bring families back to New Or-
leans.
"These guys are legends,"
Brees said. "They helped de-
fine an era and build a musi-
cal genre. They're the fathers of
blues and rock and roll."


.-: I~


many wondered if he'd show
up for "The Domino Effect,"
his namesake concert that
raises funds to help rebuild
schools and playgrounds
damaged by Hurricane Ka-
trina in 2005.
Sure enough, the 81-year-
old did show up. He smiled
and greeted the fans from his
private suite overlooking the
New Orleans Ai-ena to more
than 3,000 cheering people
who attended Saturday's
concert to see two of his old
friends perform Little Rich-
ard and B.B. King. Domino
is an icon in New Orleans,
known nearly as much for his
reclusiveness as for hits like
"Blueberry Hill" and "Ain't
That a Shame." He was never
scheduled to perform at the
benefit that is named after
the city's most famous musi-
cian. .
Little Richard, at the piano
in a sparkly white suite, deliv-


Between songs, he recalled
the New Orleans and Domino.
Richard's breakout hit- "Tutti
Frutti" was recorded at Co-
signo Matassa's sti.xdio in New
Orleans in 1955.
"I was right here," Richard
said, playing the piano as he
talked. "I was right here."
Richard said he remem-
bered being on the road with
Domino, who always longed to
be back home. Then Richard
broke into song: "Every night
about this time, I go to sleep
to keep from cryin'."
While on stage, Richard ivas

into the Louisiana Music Hall
of Fame. He said he was sur-

Domino and Richard met
backstage, where the meti
hugged, inade small talk and
posed for pictures. Richarcl's
handlers handed out free in-
spirational pamphlets to fans
during the concert, and back-


stage, he asked Domino and
others to pray with him.
"Bless this life," Richard
prayed, his head bowed, "and

The Miami Timies


MIAMI, FLORIDA, JUNE-3-9, 2009


The National Society for Minorities in Ag-
riculture, Natural Resources and Related
Sciences (MANRRS) has recently elected
Verian Thomas, Ph.D., as its national
president-elect in 2010. The membership
of MANRRS is comprised of students and
professionals .in approximately 40 chap-
ters that represent more than 50 academic
institutions in 29 states.
Thomas is the director of the Division of
Agricultural Sciences in the College of En-
gineering Sciences, Technology and Agri-
culture (CESTA) at Florida A&M University
(FAMU). During her tenure on campus,
Thomas has provided leadership that has
been active in the development of academic
programs in CESTA over the past decade.
Her educational background includes
earning her B.S. degree in chemistry from
Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada;
the M.S. degree in chemistry from the Uni-
versity of Michigan and her Ph.D. degree
in food science from the Leeds University,
England. Through her role as a member of
the faculty and an administrator, Thomas
has been actively involved in the profes-
sional development of her students. Cur-
rently, she serves as advisor for the MAN-
RRS chapter at FAMU.
"MANRRS is indeed my favorite profes-


signal society because I have witnessed
-firsthand the great impact it has 011 the
professional development of students at
Florida A&M University and other univer-
sities across the country," said Thomas. "I
look forward to serving in a leadership ca-
pacity for this organization as it continues
to train minority students to be competi-
tive and successful in a global economy."
Her presidency adds a double dose of ex-
posure for Florida A&M University, which
will serve as one of the host institutions for
the 2010 National MANRRS Conference at
Walt Disney in Orlando, Florida next year.
"As a conference host, Florida A&M Uni-
versity has an ideal opportunity to high-
light the excellent service that has been
given to minority students for generations
through its outstanding academic pro-
grams, research initiatives and extension
activities," said Thomas. "Orlando is the
ideal site to give recognition and fanfare
to both FAMU and MANRRS, sirice both
organizations continue to work diligently
to promote the academic and professional
advancement of minorities in the fields of
agriculture, natural resources and related
sciences."
