Raines Grads To Fly Like Eagles In Super Bowl

;, ft By Ron Williams

F Jacksonville natives Brian Dawkins and Lito
Sheppard had similar dreams as kids.
SE Both were active in sports and wanted to one day
play in the National Basketball Association (NBA).
"I dreamed of playing in the NBA," said Sheppard
who played on the 1997 Class 4A State Championship
team at Raines High and twice earned All-America
honors at the University of Florida.
"I dreamed of being in the NBA finals shooting the
last shot at the buzzer," said Dawkins who helped lead
Raines to 30 consecutive football wins eventually earn-
-ing him a scholarship to play at Clemson University.
The dream of playing in the NBA's big game never
came true. But on Sunday, February 6, the former

Philadelphia Eagles starting cornerback Lito Sheppard and starting free safety Brian Dawkins say the coaching and Raines Vikings athletes will play in professional foot-
mentoring they received at Jacksonville's Raines High School helped pave the way for successful collegiate and ball 's biggest game--Super Bowl XXXIX--along with
professional careers in football. The dynamic duo and their Philadelphia teammates will play in Super Bowl XXXIX their Philadelphia Eagles teammates.

When one meets
Officer Ken Jefferson, the
warmth and sincerity
stands out. He is sincere
as a police officer and in
his duties as a public
information officer. Ken
is the first African
American in Jacksonville
to hold that position. But,
that is just one of his first.
The FBI has honored


him, even though he has
never been an agent.
The FBI honors only
one person in a state for

Strengthening Our Roots

During Super Bowl

There was great joy on A. Phillip Randolph when
the business owners and residents in the area learned
that the Super Bowl was coming to Jacksonville and
such could lead to great opportunity for growth and
development.
The buildings were painted, the streets received a
beautiful make over with bricks in the concrete, the
park was cleaned and the fence was painted.
So, if customers want to get a good meal and
patronize their own, they should check with Buster's
located at 818 A. Phillip Randolph Boulevard.
He is the fourth generation living and working in
the area, said Alvin "Buster" Mitchell. According to
Mr. Mitchell, the area where his Restaurant sits is
"holy ground" as it is the first area where blacks set-
tled. It was originally called "Oakland." For those
who want to have a quick carry out meal or just relax,
they can sit down stairs. If they want to feel romantic

He has been with the
Jacksonville Sheriffs
Office for 19 years.
His interest in becom-
ing a policeman was
sparked when he was in
fifth grade and an officer
came to his school and
talked with them about
the role of being a police
officer. Ken made up his
mind at that time, that that
was his chosen career and
immediately became a

He has moved through

His greatest joy how-
ever, is when he witnessed
a vehicle land in the river

four young ladies to safe-

thought about the risk, he
only thought about saving
their lives. He felt so
blessed that God was with

President George Bush has
campaigned hard on, fixing the
Social Security "crisis" by pri-
vatizing a portion of the funds
(nearly $2 trillion) available in
the trust fund, making them
available for eligible citizens
to set up private accounts they
could use in the stock market
to grow their retirement bene-
fit. He alatims people espe-
cially baby boomers by say-
ing that by 2018; Social
Security will be running on
worthless IOUs and for some-
one born today, Social
Security will not be there for
them by 2042. But both of
these fuel the big lie that the
program is in crisis, .
First off, the truth of the
status of Social Security has
been researched by the
General Accounting Office
and the Congressional Budget
office. They find that the
Social Security Trust Fund has
a surplus now and that by
2018, it will have $5.3 trillion
in assets. But by that date,-
there will not be enough work-
ers contributing from the pay-
roll taxes to the Trust Fund to
sustain disbursements from
the current account, so money
will begin to be taken from the
Trust Fund to cover the dis-
bursements. Even under this
circumstance, the GAO finds
that Social Security will be
solvent until 2042, and the
CBO says 2052.
Also, the Social Security

trustees, a group of people
who administer the Trust
Fund, say that even after
2052, the system if nothing
is done by then will be able
to pay out benefits at 80 per-
cent of the normal rate So,
given the worst case of doing
nothing and sailing along as
we are right now, Social
Security will not become
insolvent far into this century.
What is needed is the moder-
ate fix that Congress occa-
sionally does to the program,
not a sledgehammer approach.
What is going on with the
Bush administration claiming.
that Social Security needs a
fix right now is a massive con
game, because four years
could pass and there would be
still be more than enough time
to do something to develop a
moderate fix. The crisis mode
is only justified by using the
rule of "who benefits?" If you
follow the money, who bene-
fits will be Wall Street firms
and thousands of other invest-
ment houses and banking
establishments that will man-
age the millions of new
accounts. In short, this \\ill be,
another boon to the folks who ;.
paid nearly $600 million for
the Bush 2004 election \ ictor
and another $40. million for
his recent inaugural expenses
with the income some of them
have gained from the Iraq War
cash cow.

The Social Security

Con Game
By. Ron Walters, NNPA Columnist


sell the program by saying
that since Blacks benefit from
Social Security less than oth-
ers, because they don't live as
long, they should welcome
the private retirement
accounts that enable them to
grow their benefit. This is
true, since the average of a
Black male in Washington,
D.C,, for example, is 59 and
the early retirement age is 62,
it means that half of Black
men in DC will not live long
enough to collect.
Nearing the end of my
career, I am financially secure
and knowledgeable about the
stock market, but that didn't
help when it took a massive
tumble several years ago,
from which I am just now
recovering along with every-
body else. I could hedge some
of my losses, but imagine
someone who is unfamiliar
with the stock market and
makes mistakes in either the
size or placement of invest-
ments, and who suffer big
losses as a result. Who is
going to give them their
money back? George Bush
isn't.
Nevertheless, Bush met
with a group of Black conser-
vatives at the White House on
January 25 and asked them to
help sell the program. Press
reports indicate that Robert
Woodson of the Center for
Neighborhood Enterprise
came out of the meeting rarin'
to go, and some Black minis-
ters who were there and had
benefited from the faith-based
money, also bought in. They
have little choice, as I have
constantly tried to say.
On January 26, Bush met
with the Congressional Black


Caucus to continue to push his
Social Security privatization
cdn game. At this writing, I'm
wondering who will go for it.
The CBC has their own agen-
da, but it has been blunted
somewhat by the strategy of
the Bush White House of
meeting with Black conserva-
tives first. The amazing thing
is that national press reports
have handled these two meet-
ings as though the two groups
going in to meet with the pres-
ident were equal in their rep-
resentation of Black America.
No reporter has indicated that
even though Bush set up a
meeting with Black conserva-
tives to buffer a meeting with
the CBC, the agenda of the
first meeting has marginal
support in the Black commu-
nity.
That is the point. An-out-
standing study, "The Social
Security Privatization Crisis,"
by Maya Rockeymore, Vice
President of the Congressional
Black Caucus Foundation
(www.cbcfinc.org), points out
that the Bush proposals would
harm the Black community in
a number of significant ways.
But as we can see with the
arrangements of the two meet-
ings, what matters is the Bush
agenda, not the Black agenda
and I will stand corrected if
that is not the case. ore about
the CBC meeting later.

"Living It Up Ebony Fashion Fair"
The Times Union Performing Arts Center was filled with
First Coast fashion enthusiasts for the Gamma Rho
Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority's annual
Ebony Fashion Fair Show. The very popular annual event,
which benefits the programs of the sorority's local chap-
ter, showcased the 'Living It Up' theme of the 47th show.
As Mrs. Eunice Johnson Ebony's Producer & Director
states: "Ornamentation and lavish jewelry are in. Plain
suits and simple dresses must be fixed up, styled up and
livened up with beautiful gemstone brooches, extravagant
belts, stylish hats and large sized-earrings, necklaces and
bracelets."
The magnificent designs were marvelous! The magnif-
icent models excited the audience throughout the perform-
ance with the latest fashions! And this year's cast of mod-
els included Gamma Rho Omega-Alpha Kappa Alpha
Sorority member Mrs. Grace Monroe's granddaughter,
Ms. Channon Monroe also an Alpha Kappa Alpha mem-
ber. The full-figured model is the daughter of Robert
'Bobbie' Monroe. This is Ms. Monroe's first year with the
show and her very proud Dad hosted a reception follow-
ing the First Coast Ebony show.
After forty- seven years the show continues having
great appeal! The audience expected a great show and they
were not disappointed!

Sheppard and Dawkins have contrasting views on
playing in the Super Bowl in their hometown.
"It is great. You never imagine, let alone playing in
the NFL, but playing in the Super Bowl in your home
town. I mean, this is like a once in a lifetime chance.
I'm just trying to take it all in and appreciate it," said
Sheppard who was named to his Pro Bowl in his first
year as starter with the Eagles.
Dawkins, a four time Pro Bowler who was named
1 st Team all-Pro by the Associated Press and the Eagles
Defensive MVP, was a little more reserved.
"You would think I would be jumping for joy and
leaping around, but I'm not. I'm more so excited about
playing in the game period. There's been people who
have been to the game watching me from my family
and people have watched me on television. So this is
the same thing. The difference is that we're playing for
the ultimate prize. The ultimate prize is what gets me
jacked up."
Dawkins, the leader of Philadelphia's defense, is
considered the best safety playing professional football
today. The 6-0, 210 pound 9 year pro finished the
Eagles' 2004 season second in interceptions (4) and
tackles (95). Since being drafted in the second round of
the 1996 draft, Dawkins has played in 125 games for
the Eagles more than any player on the roster.
Dawkins' intensity in preparing for games has
earned him the nickname "Idiot Man" from his team-
mates. "It's just a calm controlled chaos that I get into,"
he said.
"When I reach the threshold of the field and I walk
out that last door to the field, I'm just ready. I am ready
for whatever. I know that anything and everything on
that field I think I can do. I can run with anybody. I can
bring the wood to anybody. I'm going to make some
sacks. So I'm so excited that when I touch that field,
there's going to be a lot of excitement and a lot of fun
is going to be had."
Sheppard, the 5-10, 194 pound cornerback has been
in the NFL for three years. He was the Eagles first
round selection in 2002 and signed a lucrative five-year
contract extension on November 6, 2004.
Sheppard, known as "Lethal" during his career at
Raines, led the Eagles in interceptions with five andfin-
ished the season tied third in interceptions in the NFC.
He is the fourth Eagle and first since Eric Allen (four in


1993) to return two interceptions for a touchdown in a
single season. Sheppard ranks fourth in franchise his-
tory in interception yardage in a season (172).
"It's been an unbelievable year. I've been blessed
in a lot of ways this year as far as personal accolades
and as well as this team. We've come so far and
worked so hard to come to this point. They say hard
work pays off and it's just starting to pay off for this
organization," said Sheppard.
Sheppard's entire family graduated from Raines as
m"a did some of Dawkins' fam-
ily including his wife
Connie.
Another Raines gradu-
ate, Harold Carmichael is
also a part of the Eagles
organization. Carmichael,
Director of Player
Programs for the Eagles,
Swas an All-Pro wide
receiver for Philadelphia
who caught 79 career
Harold Carmichael touchdown passes and once
held the NFL record of 127 consecutive games
All three men speak proudly and fondly of their
Alma Mater. Dawkins says Jacksonville has produced
a lot of athletic talent, not just at Raines. But he agreed
that the success he Sheppard, Carmichael and others
achieved was nurtured at Raines.
,"At Raines we've had our share of good coaches
there. We've had our share of great teachers there to
help us with our bo9k work and to prepare us for what
its going to be like when we reach college so we're not
so far removed that we can't adjust when we get to col-
lege," explained Dawkins.
As far as the Super Bowl is concerned, Sheppard
said, "It's going to be a great game. Like they say, it's
the two best teams in football. They (Patriots) have a
great team and we have a great team."
"It feels great," said Dawkins. "That's an understate-
ment to finally say we're here. I think the thing we all
(Eagles) want to make people understand is that we're
not here to give a good showing...to give the Patriots a
good run for their money... We're excited to be here.
But we anticipate going out and having success and
winning."

St. John's River Seen


As 'Unique' Aspect Of


Super Bowl XXXIX


The St. John's River as seen from Riverwalk in down-
town Jacksonville


The St. Johns River, a
federal waterway, runs
alongside Alltel Stadium
and right through the heart
of downtown Jacksonville,
posing what some say are
"unprecedented" safety con-
cerns for Super Bowl
XXXIX because all boats -
from jet skis to cruise ships -
have to be checked and


rechecked.
NFL vice president for
security Milt Ahlerich
downplayed the impact the
river had on the NFL's secu-
rity plan for the big game.
Ahlerich called the St.
John's River "a unique
aspect of this Super Bowl."
"We are very pleased
with what we have seen


here," Ahlerich said. "We
have complete confidence
our fans, our teams, our
employees will be safe not
just at the game but at the
many other events."
Although Ahlerich and
Jacksonville Sheriff John
Rutherford said the three-
pronged approach to Super
Bowl security via land, air
and sea was the first of its
kind, they also said it was
merely an additional part of
a detailed security plan.
Jet skis are being banned
on the river, largely because
of the cruise ships.
Certain private boats,
whose owners won permits
in a lottery, are allowed on
the river.
Coast Guard divers are
regularly inspecting the bot-
tom of the ships, plus keep-
ing other boats a safe dis-
tance away.


Governor Bush, First Lady Announce Black

History Month Essay Contest Winners
'What Impact Has An African American Educator
From Florida Had On My Life' Served As Theme


TALLAHASSEE--
Governor Jeb Bush and First
Lady Columba Bush
announced the winners of
the fourth annual Black
History Month essay contest
for K-12 students during
their annual Black History
Month reception.
The reception at the
Governor's mansion marks
the beginning of a month-
long celebration honoring
the contributions African
Americans have made
throughout Florida's history.
Students' essays were
focused on the theme, "What
Impact Has an African
American Educator from
Florida Had on My Life."
During the reception,
Governor Bush also
announced a month-long
schedule of events designed
to pay tribute to African-
American history and cul-
ture in Florida.
"Columba and I are
proud to join Floridians in
celebrating the contributions
of Florida's African-
American educators. Florida
continues to see rising stu-
dent achievement, with the
greatest learning gains
among minority students,"
said Governor Bush. "The
more than 4,500 essays sub-
mitted for this contest are a
testament to the important
role Florida teachers play in
bettering the lives of our
children. I applaud the thou-
sands of educators who ded-
icate their lives to give
Florida students the tools
needed for a successful
future."
Jonathan Green is a cele-
brated painter of the
Southern experience, whose
work has been exhibited
both nationally and interna-
tionally.
His paintings chronicle
the oral history and vibrant
lives of his extended family
and neighbors from the rural
African American commu-
nity of his childhood in
V


South Carolina. Mrs. Bush
personally selected pieces
from the collection includ-
ing, The River, Gulla' Wash
and Fishing from the Shore.
Winners were selected in
each of three categories: ele-
mentary school (grades K-
5), middle school (grades 6-
8) and high school (grades
9-12).
The contest essays were
judged on the student's
inspirational and personal
content that shared how an
African American educator
impacted their life. The win-
ners of this year's Black
History Month essay contest
are: Denzel Pleasant,
Elementary School; Ariel
Alexis Thompson, Middle
School; and Khaleah Ann
Evelyn, High School.
Students were awarded a
four-year tuition scholarship
sponsored by the Florida
Prepaid College Foundation,
and a Hewlett Packard com-
puter, courtesy of Hayes
Computer Systems. The
scholarships can be used at
any Florida community col-
lege, college or university,
providing students meet the
admission requirements.
The Florida Prepaid College
Foundation has committed
to offering the scholarships
annually at Governor Bush
and First Lady's Black
History Month Reception.
Denzel Pleasant, 7, of
West Palm Beach, is a sec-
ond-grade student at Timber
Trace Elementary School.
He is a straight "A" student.
In his free time, Denzel
enjoys reading Junie B.
Jones books, playing video
games and spending time
with his family.
Ariel Alexis Thompson,
13, of Tampa, is an eighth-
grade student at Villa
Madonna School in Tampa.
In her free time, she enjoys
singing and visiting her

16, of Homestead, is an
eleventh grade student at
Homestead High School.
Khaleah is an honors stu-
dent, and currently serves as
her school's Student Council
Junior Vice President and
Mayor of the City of
Homestead Mayor's Youth
Council. She is also a mem-
ber of the Aerospace Magnet
program and enjoys volun-
teering as a reading mentor
with the Teen Trendsetter
Reading Mentor program.
She plans to attend either the
University of Florida or
Florida State University.
Khaleah plans to triple-
major in International
Business, Global Studies
and Political Science.
The Governor and First
Lady were joined at the
reception by Lt. Governor
Toni Jennings; Secretary
John Agwunobi, Florida
Department of Health;
members of the Florida
Conference of Black State
Legislators; Stanley Tate,
Chairman of the Florida
Prepaid College Foundation,
and more than 300 commu-
nity, business and education
leaders.
"Florida education pio-
neers, Mary McLeod
Bethune, Harry T. Moore
and James Weldon Johnson
are just a few examples of
the many African-
Americans who have made
significant contributions to
Florida's History," said
Representative Arthenia
Joyner, Tampa. "Florida is
filled with a host of extreme-
ly talented and dedicated
educators, who are shaping
our future leaders and
preparing them for excel-
lence both in and out of the
classroom. It 'warms my
heart to see the incredible
level of respect and appreci-
ation so many of our state's
youth have for their teach-
ers."

Eagles Fans Desperate To Get To The Big Game
PHILADELPHIA The word out of the City of
Brotherly Love is that several championship-deprived
Philadelphians are so desperate to get down to Jacksonville,
Fla.for the Super Bowl XXXIX on February 6 that they're
borrowing against their homes to pay for the tickets.
Mortgage bankers in Philadelphia and southern New
Jersey say that Eagles fans have been inquiring about refi-
nancing mortgages, or taking out home equity loans or home
equity credit lines, to pay for what O'Donoghue calls "the
chance of a lifetime." Eric Reeber, a mortgage banker in
Mount Laurel, N.J., said his office has gotten at least a dozen
calls from Eagles fans looking for some quick cash. He said
two couples have already been approved and were scheduled
to close on their loans. (He said they were too embarrassed
to talk publicly about their borrowing.)
**********
Philadelhia Daily News Top Editor Stepping Down
Zachary Stalberg, longtime editor of the Philadelphia
Daily News, abruptly announced his retirement, drawing
gasps and cries from the newsroom staff. He will be suc-
ceeded by Managing Editor Michael Days. Stalberg, 57,
said his last day will be Feb. 11.
'Stalberg, a native Philadelphian, has been with the Daily
News for 34 years. In his more than 20 years as editor, the
tabloid won Pulitzer Prizes in 1985 and 1992 and was a
finalist in 1990. Under,Stalberg's leadership, the newspaper
increased its role in identifying and promoting solutions'to
big-city problems including blight, school safety, public
transit and urban planning.

s wants the special envoy to
AT teams were dis-
Salso help resolve rebel con-
ying. He was arrested
ing. He was arrested flicts in two of the hardest
hit countries, Indonesia and
Sri Lanka, Eckhard said.
This could give Clinton a
chance to use his political
skills to mediate in an upris-
ing of separatist rebels fight-
ing for independence since
1976 in Indonesia's Aceh
province as well as the con-
Sflict in Sri Lanka where
Tamil Tiger rebels have been
S fighting for a separate
^ homeland since 1983.
Soon after the disaster,
President Bush named
Clinton and his father, for-
Smer President George H.W.
Bush, to head a nationwide
"c private fund-raising effort to
3 help countries devastated by
D the tsunamis across the
2 Indian Ocean to Africa. The
disaster killed more than
157,000 people and dis-
placed millions in 11 coun-
tries.


Superior Court Judge Says He Was Misquoted
BOSTON, Mass.--Superior Court Judge Ernest Murphy,
suing the Boston Herald for libel testified Monday that he
never told lawyers to tell a 14-year-old rape victim to "get
over it." The Herald reported that Judge Murphy made the
statement in 2002 during a closed meeting with lawyers.
The paper quoted Murphy as saying "Tell her to get over
it" in a series of stories portraying the judge as lenient toward
defendants. Murphy called that notion "absolutely prepos-
terous" saying he expressed.concern for the girl, and asked
if counseling'was available for her, and was told it was not.
"Then I said, 'That's a terrible shame,"' he testified.
Murphy also angrily denied that he derided a 79-year-old
robbery victim in an unrelated case, saying the comments he
made-- also in a private conference with lawyers-- were
"ripped from context" when they later appeared in the
Herald. After the stories came out, Murphy received hate
mail and death threats.


The U.N. diplomat,
speaking on condition of
anonymity, said the appoint-
ment of Clinton as Annan's
top envoy for the rehabilita-
tion of tsunami-devastated
countries would expand on
the former president's cur-
rent efforts to raise money in
the United States.
The two ex-presidents
have been traveling through-
out the country raising funds
and Bush said last week they
hope to go to the tsunami-
ravaged Indian Ocean'
region to illustrate the need
for continued donations
from Americans. He didn't
say when.

either elected or appointed
public officials, two were
members of the clergy, one
was a civic/community
activist and one was a busi-
ness advocate.
Perhaps even more inter-
esting, it appears that the
most direct way to be recog-
nized as an African
American leader is to be
either an elected official (27
persons) or an appointed
government official (9 per-
sons)

A study whose results were
reported in the New England
Journal of Medcine indicates
that funeral directors have been
very helpful in dealing with fam-
ilies suffering grievous loss of a
child due to disease. Most of the
families expressed very positive
feelings toward the funeral
director for the services rendered'
during the bereavement. The
authors conclude that the funeral
directors' experience with grief
reactions make them skilled in
offering solace to grieving fami-
lies.
This role as cunselor/com-
forter may be more important
than ever before.

The increasing isolation of
people in our society and the
fractionalization of the family
often make the needs of the
bereaved very acute.
The modem funeral director
is aware of and sensitive to these
needs. Often, because of fre-
quent experience, working with
grieving families, the director
can make an invaluable contri-
bution meeting these needs.

that division; he discovered
that 70 percent of all of the
employees were white males.
There were 300 white males,
less than 10 women, less than
five Hispanics and even less
Asians.
There were approximately
60 African Americans so he
had a lot of work to do. He
was able to get corporations
to sponsor persons he referred
to as "under-represented" if
they met the department's cri-
teria. The department now
has other programs that he
feels will increase the diversi-
ty. Sheriff Rutherford has
established a program for
Community Service Officers.
They wear the yellow
shirts and can work with traf-
fic and parking tickets. To get
into the program, one must be
18 years of age with a high
school diploma. They get a
five-year contract and the
department will pay for their
higher education by reimburs-
ing them for all classes taken.
Jefferson finds joy in
doing good. He has served in
several positions, including
with the at-risk-youth
between 9 and 12 years of
age. He was so pleased with
his achievements helping
youth in the DEFY (Drug
Education for Youth) program
and because of his success in.
that program, he received the
FBI award.
Ken graduated from
Ribault High School and
attended college at FCCJ and
Liberty University. He enjoys
playing basketball, T-ball
with his son, and reading. To
Ken, "it is a pleasure coming
to work everyday, to a job you
really enjoy." Ken loves his
job, he loves his people.
When you talk with most
media personnel, they will
agree, "Ken is superb and
Jacksonville is fortunate in
having an officer like Ken
whose goal is to make
Jacksonville safe and
diverse."

The countdown to Super Bowl 39 is all about two teams:
the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots fight-
ing over the elusive pigskin. That's true! But the Super
Bowl is also about an entire week of festivities and parties.
And that means we all need a Super Bowl LOOK. -!
With more than 20 years as a stylist, Gloria Watson of
Kharriss Beauty Salon says, "for this occasion every one
wants to feel like a celebrity. These are a few hairstyles to
consider. I think you should look classy but natural. A care- .-.
free, low maintenance hair style, such as a straw set, a soft
up do, a jazzy style waved with a bun, a soft flip, or a wrap."
Watson goes on to say that adding color will enhance
most of these styles. Remember your hair makes a statement for you. Your hairstyle must
feel comfortable and must be one that will compliment you and your attire.
On the subject of what to wear during the week of Super Bowl XXXIX, that depends
on your fashion personality. Karen Landry of HR Resources, Inc. is a long time image
and management consultant.

,I .


Landry says if you have the lean, slim hourglass or straight body type, and you want
to sport your menswear look on a gorgeous feminine body, several designers hae itob-
duced sporty sweat suits. The fashionable colors, and figure enhancing complimentary
colors accentuate your body type.










The usual casual outfit may include high fashion jeans. Add your favorite cashmere
sweater, a fitted denim jacket or sport your favorite team's shirt. Add a simple or bold
necklace or belt. Dress up your casual look by including an after-five top with your jeans
and denim jacket. Add a fun element (especially if it is cold) rabbit fir trim to your boots
or gloves. A word of caution, don't wear the stilettos if you are not used to walking long.
distances in high heels.










By night, the Super Bowl parties should bring out your dramatic sophistication, ele-
gance, and glamour. You want to look for interesting plunging lines, flair tail skirts and
dresses. Simply black is always classic and sultry. Landry ends by saying "making a
fashion statement at any affair is accomplished by selecting an outfit that fits comfort-
ably with your own personal style, and fits comfortably on your body.
And one final note, Super Bowl fashions don't have to break the bank. You'll need
funds for all the paraphernalia and memorabilia you'll be able to find when thousands of
people converge on Jacksonville. Zelma Fitzpatrick Hughes says Hidden Secrets on
McDuffAvenue i a must find. Looking and feeling good may go.a long wa\. but all of
North Florida will need an armful of PATIENCE and KINDNESS as we share our homes
and city with the world.

2 Gallon-size zip lock plastic bags.
Your favorite barbecue sauce.
3-gallon container of LouAna Peanut Oil.
LouAna Cajun Marinade.
28-quart Masterbuilt Turk 'N Surf electric deep fryer.

Use an Indoor Electric Fryer
You can cook your Cajun Fried Baby Back Ribs right in your kitchen using a Masterbuilt electric
fryer. Be sure to keep children and pets away, wear your oven mitts and be careful working around
the hot oil.
Marinating and Frying
Pour LouAna Peanut Oil in the electric fryer, reaching the fill line and heat to 375 degrees F.
Peanut oil has a terrific nutty flavor and is best suited for frying. It sears the outside of the ribs
quickly, sealing in the flavor of the marinade while keeping the ribs moist.
Now, mix LouAna Cajun Marinade according to directions. Place 4 rib racks in a zip lock bag.
Add eight ounces (1/2 cup) of LouAna Cajun Marinade. Shake the bag until ribs are coated with
marinade. Repeat process and refrigerate marinated ribs for up to four hours.
Remove ribs from bag and drain on a perforated rack over a cookie sheet. Place up to 3 racks of the
marinated ribs in a fryer basket in a circular fashion.
Slowly lower basket of ribs into oil and cook for 18-20 minutes. Use a deep fry thermometer to
make sure you're frying at a constant 350 degrees F. Never allow the temperature to climb above
that.
Remove basket from fryer. Drain ribs for a few minutes and cut into individual servings. Place ribs


in a bowl. Toss with your favorite barbecue sauce. Serve and enjoy
Nutritional Comparison Fried vs. Grilled Baby Back Ribs
Some people think cooking in all that hot oil means greasy food. Not true. In fact, according to
Menu Doctor Owner Karen Schroeder, a food technologist who does nutritional analysis for major
restaurants, an eight-ounce serving of Cajun Fried Baby Back Ribs (with bone) using LouAna
Peanut Oil & Marinade has 33 grams of fat and 410 calories. By comparison, an eight-ounce
serving of Grilled Baby Back Ribs (with bone) has 31 grams of fat and 390 calories.
"We found that the oil absorbed into the Cajun Fried Baby Back Ribs is minimal," says Schroeder.
"We were vey pleased with it."

MEMORIAL
In Loving
Memory
Of My Wife













OLLIE STEWART
March 29, 1952-
February 1. 2003
You've gone first and I
remain to walk the road
alone, I'll live in memories
garden dear, with happy
days we've known.

In spring I wait for roses *
red, when faded,
the lilacs blue.
In early fall when
brown leaves fall, I'll
catch a glimpse ofyou.

I'll hear your voice, I'll
see your smile, though
blindly I may fumble. The
memory of your helping
hand will buoy
me on with hope.

I want to know each step
you take, so I may take the
same. For someday down
that lonely road you'll
hear me call your name.

We love and miss you:
Husband, Kenneth
Stewart; Three Sons,
Kenneth Lamar, Shawn
Antoine and Christian
James Stewart; Daughter,
Brenda Ruth Stewart and
11 grand children.

(Please see
The Florida-Times Union
Sfor additional information)

Marvyene's greatest sur-
prise was the appearance of
her sister, Dr. Johnnetta
BItsch Cole at the grand
birthday celebration in the
Willie Mae Ashley
Auditorium of the Peck
Center on Saturday night,
January 29 in downtown
Fernandina Beach. Johnny
Robinson's Smooth Jazz
Band played and the Beach
Lady sang "Summer Time."
Besides the gracious
Beach Lady the feature at
her three birthday celebra-
tions was the viewing of
Erica McCarthy's documen-
tary film titled, "The Beach
Lady. McCarthy's docu-
mentary portrays


Marvyene's


struggle to arrest the
encroachment of mega
development and take over
on American Beach.
McCarthy is a young
Caucasian girl, who has
tastefully and succinctly
illustrated The Beach Lady's
causes and missions.
Those who missed "The
Beach Lady" can see it at the
Jacksonville Film Festival in
May.


' Dennis Stewart aka "Mr.
Natural artistically created a
birthday cake in the shape of
the once 60 foot American
Beach Dune dubbed Nana.
Mr. 'Natural's creation was
most delicious.
Culinary arts students
from the Fernandina Beach
High School supplied deli-
cious dainty party foods.
On Sunday night the cel-
ebration was held at the


Racquet Club of the Amelia
Island Plantation where
Marvyene entertained well
wishers with a beautiful
dance of the butterfly as
Tony Hamilton of St. Croix
in the Virgin Islands
crooned creative melodies.
Beach Lady's charming
escort was Alvin R. Dollar
of Atlanta. The Monday
night finale at the Ritz
Carlton on Amelia Island


was splendid. Phil Scanlan,
event planner and chairman
of the Birthday Celebration
escorted The Beach Lady.
In attendance were her
cousin Thelma Lewis, Janet
Rutherford Johnson and a
plethora of Jacksonville's
Black Blue Lists. Olurun
Burkes and Frances Bradley
provided African ethnic
entertainment.

SUPER McNabb Heaps Praise On 'Big O";



By Ron W Brady Suns Comparisons To Joe

I _- .i ,g -


Throughout my 26 year career as a jouralist--especial-
ly as a sports writer-- I have had some pretty choice assign-
ments. I have covered high school chamiponship games,
college bowl games, and even .semi-professional sports
events. I have covered the Jacksonville Jaguars since their
arrival in the National Football League.
But nothing beats the assignment to cover the Super
Bowl! And what's more, nothing beats covering the Big
Game in my own backyard. When the New England Patriots
kickoff against the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl
XXXIX in Alltel Stadium on Sunday, February 6, I will be
there with pen and pad ready to work.
On Tuesday, February 1, I was one of over 3,000 sports
journalists who converged on Alltel for Super Bowl Media
Day. It was a day for the media to get up front and personal
with coaches and players vying for the coveted Lombardi
Trophy and bragging rights as the best team in professional
football for at least a year.
I now present to you some super notes I gathered during
a super day.
BIG FASHION STATEMENTS-Philadelphia Eagles
linebacker Ike Reese (#58,
6-2, 222 pounds) made a
splash in his designer tinted
glasses during media day.
Does he look like Eddie
Murphy or what? PETA
(People For The Ethical
Treatment Of Animals) was
no where to be found as
Tampa Bay Bucanneers
defensive end Simeon Rice
moved about at Alltel
Stadium. Rice (6-5, 268
pounds, standing behind Reese in photo) was ready for the
chilly confines of Alltel wearing a white and grey chincilla
fur jacket. Rice, a former high,school teammate of Eagles
quarterback Donovan McNabb, was on assignment for NFL
Network.
INTERNATIONAL FLAVOR-The NFL provided
Super XXXIX credentials journalist spanning the globe. I
had a chance to chat with
Joe Satomi of Japan with
-1 .NTV International
Corporation (A U.S.
Subsidiary of Nippon TV
Network Corp). Satomi
called Raines High School
Athletic Director Doug
White to arrange an oppor-
tunity for his crew to do a
feature on Raines graduate
and Eagles player Brian
Dawkin's gift to the
Vikings athletic depart-
ment. Satomi and his crew are shown here finalizing logis-
tic information.
IN THE HOUSE!-It was refreshing to see an impressive
contingent African-American journalist and sports show
hosts in the
place at Alltel.
Moving about .... .
my appointed
rounds I
caught a
glimpse of
Beasley Reese
(second from
left), a former
NFL player with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and a current
television sports anchor and ESPN Sports Center anchor,
Stuart Scott (right). Reese was wearing credentials for
KYW-TV of Philadelphia. I also saw former Denver
Broncos runningback Terrell Davis working with the NFL
Network and former NFL offensive linesman big Bubba
Parris now with ESPN.
THE DILLON FACTOR-The one player in Super Bowl
XXXIX who may be most deserving of a championship ring
is New England Patriots running back Corey Dillon. For
years, Dillon was the bright
spot on a woeful Cincinnati
Bungles (Bengals) football
team. After becoming per-
S sona non grata for the
'F~y Bengals, Dillon moved on to
greener pastures with the the
.Pats. Dillon is glad to be on a
winning.team, but memories
of the Bengals still leaves a
bad taste in his mouth. "The one thing that really irritated
me was when they said I was a cancer to the team. That kind
of ruffled me a little bit, because for a guy who went out
there for seven years and put his heart and soul out on that
field and at the end of the day be looked upon as I'm the rea-
son why we're not succeeding, that just rubbed me the
wrong way. I didn't really appreciate that. I'm a competi-
tor. I like to win...I wanted to win that bad so if at times my
behavior might have been sporadic, well hey I was pissed
ff. I wanted to jvin. Now I'm getting thaopportunity."

and logo of Super Bowl XXXIX as well as the logos of the New England Patirots and Philadelphia Eagles. Super

By Ron Williams

When it comes to his
performance on the. field in
the heat of the game,
Philadelphia Eagles
Donovan McNabb makes
sure he gives credit where
credit is due.
During Media day at
Super Bowl XXXIX he took
the opportunity to heap
praise on his offensive line,
a group of beefy comrades
he calls "Meet The
Blockers".
"I like to promote my
offensive line starting with
Hank Fraely better known as
"Honey Bun," our left. guard
is Artis Hicks, our left tack-
le is Trey Thomas, right
guard Jermaine Mayberry,
and right tackle is John
Runyon."
For McNabb, it's an up
front and personal affair
with his O-line off and on
the field.
Every Wednesday and
Thursday he spends time
after practice with his center
(Fraely) and tight end (L.J.
Smith.)
McNabb goes over vari-
ous calls and schemes as
well as different fronts the
offense will face come game
time.
"Every year I have an
offensive dinner. I have all
of the offensive guys and
give them presents. Last-
year for the Pro Bowl, I gave
them watches. But also for
the dinner I gave them some
mini-computers."
Side stepping the talk
about his offensive for a
moment, McNabb focused
on what it would take for the
Eagles to win the Lombardi
Trophy in the Super Bowl.
"Elimnate turnovers. It's
going to take us to go out
and establish the tempo
early on the offensive side
and make sure we control
ball, control the clock, and
control the game," said
McNabb.
He also gave respect to
the New England Patriots.
"They are the champi-


ons. They've won two
Super Bowls. There's a rea-
son why they're talked
about. We respect them like
they respect us. When it
comes Sunday we've just
got to play football...""This
is the ultimate stage,"
assured McNabb

'. .' Brad y
speaks
with an
,4*" air of
Vapprecia-
tion and
A.a pappre-
hension
whenever
Tom Brady someone
mentions
his name in comparison with San Fransico 49er great Joe
Montana.
"It's a great compliment. He was was the best of all time.
Everybody knows about Joe Montana and what he did.
Whenever I hear comparisons I sometimes go 'wow that's
really neat' and sometimes I go 'wow they're really full of
it'," said Brady who is aiming for his third Super Bowl ring
against the Philadelphia Eagles.
When he hears the talk about comparisons to Joe, Brady
shuns the comparisons admitting that Montana was on a dif-
ferent level.
"This is my fifth year and hopefully there are many more
games to play, but I don't think comparisons at this time
mean much to me. Maybe at the end of my career that
would be a neat thing to happen.," said Brady.
As far as Super XXXIX is concerned Brady said, "I am
trying not to go out there and waste a lot of energy doing
things I really don't need to be doing this week, probably
what I did that first year and what I did last year. I think this
year is going to be quite a bit different in that for me this
week is not for fun. It's for playing the game. It's come to
work and try to win a football game."

Texas Woman Accused

Of Giving Sherry Enema

LAKE JACKSON, Texas A woman has been indict-
ed on negligent homicide charges for allegedly giving
her husband a sherry enema that killed him.
Michael Warner, 58, died last May after the enema
caused his blood-alcohol level to rise to .47 percent.
"That's extremely high," Detective Lt. Robert Turner
said. "You're either going to be in the hospital or the
funeral home with that much alcohol."
Tammy Warner, 42, was indicted last week.
Turner said Michael Warner was an alcoholic who
could not swallow liquor because of ulcers and heart-
burn.
"He was told that he could not drink alcohol or that
he would die, according to the people that we inter-
viewed," Turner said. "We are going to prove that she
gave him the sherry and that she knew that he wasn't
supposed to have any and that it could be detrimental to
his health, and that she gave it to him anyway."
Tammy Warner was released on $30,000 bail. Her
attorney did not immediately return a call Thursday..


Cremated Remains

Found In Rental Home

LOUISVILLE, Ky. The cremated remains of six
people were found in the basement of a rental home
where the tenant was being evicted, officials said.
The ashes were found in boxes as workers removed
belongings from the ,house, said Dr. Ron Holmes,
Jefferson County coroner.
The owner of the home, in western Louisville, called
the coroner's office seeking advice on what to do with
the boxes, Holmes said, because he wanted to make sure
that the remains were handled respectfully. The owner
declined comment Tuesday night.
The tenant apparently' once worked at a funeral
home, Holmes said. But why 'the remains were in his
basement is unclear. "This is bizarre," the coroner said.
The ashes are stored in six separate boxes, each
labeled with a name, Holmes said. He would not release
any of the names.
Holmes said he took the remains to a crematorium,
which confirmed that they are human ashes. The coroner
said he and workers at the crematorium opened one of
the boxes and found a metal tag that is typically marked
and kept with the ashes. The tag indicated that the body
had been cremated in 1995, Holmes said.
The other boxes have not been opened, he said.
Holmes said he and some of his deputies intended to go
through coroner's records Wednesday to see whether
they have any information on the people whose names
are listed on the boxes. They would like to be able to
notify next of kin, Holmes said.
Holmes said he would meet with police authorities
Wednesday to see what they can determine about why
the ashes were in the tenant's possession.

Sandalwood Student Impresses Pros

At Super Bowl XXXIX Media Day


Marvin Sapp got a taste
-3 of the
media

S- s ur -

t h e
Super
Marvin Sapp Bowl.
During Media Day for
Super Bowl XXXIX at
Alltel Stadium on
February 1, Sapp was
among the 3,000 or more
sports- journalists on hand
to interview players of the
Phildelphia Eagles' and
New England Patriots
who will battle for the cov-
eted Super Bowl champi-
onship title. .'
Sapp, a senior at
Jacksonville s
Sandalwood High School,
had the opportunity of a
lifetime in covering Super
Bowl events for
NFLHS.com and SUPER-
BOWL.com during Super
Bowl Week in his home-
town.
Sapp, the second
cousin of Oakland Raiders
defensive tackle Warren
Sapp, was assigned to give
a report from Super Bowl
XXXIX Media Day, at
Media Day, a highly antic-
ipated Super Bowl player
availability session.'
Sapp's: story was post-
ed on NFLHS.com and
SUPERBOWL.com. on
Tuesday evening.
At the spot where
Jacksonville native and
Philadelphia Eagle Pro
Bowl player Lito
Sheppard sat during Media


Day, Sapp was poised and
ready to ask a question.
Several seasoned
sports writers jockied their
way into the session over-
shadowing Sapp's ques-
tioning.
Florida Star Sports
.Editor Ron Williams
advised Sapp to boldly
jump in with his question-
ing.
Sapp then told
Sheppard that he planned
to play collegiately at the
University of South
Carolina under coach
Steve Spurrier who also
coached Sheppard at the
University of Florida.
Shepprad was
impressed with Sapp and
gave him encouraging
words and advice.
Sapp also drew a smile
from All Pro Brian
Dawkins, a Raines High
School graduate like fel-
low teammate Sheppard.
SDawkins advised Sapp
on the things he should do
to prepare himself for a
collegiate and professional
career. A middle line-
backer at Sandalwood,
Sapp made 144 tackles as
a senior with the Saints.
He led Sandalwood to
the Class 6C regional
final, where they lost to
Apopka High School,
Warren Sapp's alma mater.
As a junior at Bolles
High School in 2003,
Marvin Sapp earned
Florida Times-Union

Year honors. For the sec-
ond consecutive year,
NFLHS.com served as the


internet home of the

On February 2, all five
teams participated in a
round-robin style tourna-
ment, with the top two
teams facing off for the
championship at Skinner-
Barco Stadium at the
Bolles School on Saturday,
February, 5.
All other teams will
play out the remaining
spots in earlier round-
robin action that day. The
Global Junior
Championships have been
held at the past eight Super
Bowls.

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known for its fearless
approach to reality-based subjects!

Dear Deanna:
Last year, I learned I had a sister from where my dad cheat-
ed on my mother. I had to go without things because he never
had any extra money. I was shortchanged because he was
secretly paying child support my mother didn't know about. As
an adult, I stopped dealing with him because I felt he was so
wrong for having a baby out of wedlock. How do I heal?
Randy (San Bernardino, CA)

Dear Randy:
Start by reaching out to your father and share your feelings and explain why you kicked
him to the curb. Once that's done, put it in prayer, hope for the best and keep it moving. As
for you-become committed to being a manly role model for your mother, your sister and.
any woman you deal with. Don't make the same mistake your dad made---remember real
men don't make babies unless they're married.

Dear Deanna!
Me and my partner were dealing drugs but when we got caught, the police claim I had
the dope. My partner threw the crack out of the window and we tried to run. The police say
they found it in my pocket. My homeboy testified against me and now I'm doing all these
years. It's killing me.
Big G Central Corrections Facility (McCloud, OK)

1 Dear Big G.: '
Thank God those officers didn't shoot you in the back as you were running. If you were


dealing with dope you deserved to be caught and punished. When it comes to drugs, your
flesh and blood will turn on you in a second if they can get out of the drama. Since police
brutality has been on the rise, patrol cars have cameras and your incident should have been
recorded. Drop to your knees in prayer and use your jail time to think and plan to be a bet-
ter person when you're released.

Dear Deanna!
My girlfriend's attractive, nicely shaped and has a great personality. I don't understand
vhy she wears so much weave. Her natural hair is nice and long but she still glues, sews and
patches all that fake hair in her head and I can't stand it. She said she's tired of me complain-
ing about it. How.can it make it clear that I want her weave less?
James (Chicago, IL)

Dear James:
Men often complain about hair weave because they can't run their fingers through it. If
the weave looks nice and can fool somebody you have nothing to gripe about. You don't
need to make anything clear except the.compliments when the weave looks good, and if it
looks bad to you, hand over the cash for the beauty salon. Leave the issue alone, because like
the hair weave, you're an accessory that can be replaced.
