How well do your mem-
bers of Congress protect
children? Once again, that's
the question answered by
the Children's Defense
Fund Action Council's
Congressional Scorecard. In
this newly-released report,
individual Senators and
Representatives and, state
delegations were given non-
partisan rankings based on
their votes in Congress dur-
ing 2004 on legislation
affecting children's lives.
Some Members of
Congress received strong.
marks for standing for chil-
dren-and some are failing
This is the most danger-
ous time for children in
America since the
Children's Defense Fund
began, and we need to know
which of our leaders are.
voting to protect children
and which are voting to
leave children behind. We
can't be persuaded just by
compassionate words. We
need to look at actions and
votes, far too many of
which are profoundly unjust
to children, the poorest age
Group of Americans. This
year, it is more important
than ever that our members
of Congress are held
accountable for their
actions. In the next weeks
or months U.S. Senators
and Representatives will be
casting critical votes on a
national budget that threat-
ens to make permanent tax
cuts that lavish massive tax
breaks on the rich while
imposing budget caps, cuts,
freezes, and block grants on
programs for poor children
and families including
Medicaid, the State
Children's Health Insurance
Program (SCHIP), and
Head Start. America's chil-
dren and families did not
create the deficit and should
not have to pay for it with
their very'lives,-health care,
education, nutrition, and
safety. The crucial frame-
work of.laws that protects
millions of our most vulner-
able children 'is at risk, and
our children are depending
on iMembers of Congress to
be their champions. You
should let our lMembers
hear .from you that they
should vote no on the pend-
ing budget resolution.
Sixteen Senators and
113 Representatives rarely,
if ever, voted in the best
interests of children in
2004. They had scores
under 10 percent; 74
received a zero. The ratings
were based on how mem-
bers voted on 12 key meas-
ures and whether they co-
sponsored the Act to Leave
No Child Behind, the com-
prehensive bi-partisan leg-
islation reflecting CDF
Action Council's mission
and incorporating policies
to truly honor those words.

the worst voting record for
children was Wyoming,
with just 5 percent, fol-
lowed by Idaho, Oklahoma,
Utah, New Hampshire,
Colorado, Alaska, Kansas,
Georgia, and Alabama.
On the other hand, there
were Senators and
Representatives who con-
sistently voted to protect
children. Eight Senators
and 43 Representatives
received a perfect score.
The state delegation with
Sthe best record was Hawaii,
leading with 94 percent,
followed by Massachusetts
and Rhode Island (which
tied for second), Vermont,
North Dakota, Maryland,
Maine, Delaware, New
York, and Oregon.
We should thank these
members of Congress
whose rankings were high.
It's also critical that mem-
bers of Congress who voted
against children know how
dissatisfied we are with
their records and know we
will hold them accountable
for doing better in the conm-
ing year. Every Senator and
Representative needs to
know that the most impor-
tant vote they will make
about the lives of children
will be on the tax and budg-
et choices this year. They
must not vote to extend or
expand tax cuts for million-
aires and billionaires on the
backs of our children.
We are privileged in this
country to have the right to
vote and elect leaders we
trust to make decisions that
reflect our values and best
interests. Too many of our
elected leaders make choic-
es that hurt children, whose
needs must be a priority in
the Congress, the White
House, and our nation. We
urge you to review the 2004
Children's Defense Fund
Scorecard carefully and
judge for yourself whether
your Senators and
Representatives *are living
up to the values and stan-
dards of a nation built on a
'professed creed of justice
for all. This year, more than
ever, every American needs
to be educated about the
actions of the people we

Towers, Jr., Esq. for his lifetime of service to the commu-
Judith A. M. Smith, DM Volunteer Jacksonville's
President and Chief Executive Officer said "Our Celebration
of Service affords us an opportunity to express tremendous
appreciation on behalf of our entire community for our
incredible volunteers and the work that they do to make life
better for all our citizens. The individuals and groups hon-
ored for their service at our Celebration represent only the
tip of the iceberg in Northeast Florida volunteering. Our
local volunteer rate of 64% substantially exceeds the nation-
al. average of 28.8%. I suggest that this statistic reflects
something very special about our community."
"It's easy to overlook the importance of volunteers
because they rarely sing their own praises; yet they change
so many lives," said Robert K. Goodwin, president and
chief executive officer of the Points of Light Foundation
'Thank you!' to the selfless men, women, and young people
who embody the American spirit of caring for one another."
Goodwin noted that according to Bureau of Labor Statistics'
latest study on volunteers, over 64 million Americans volun-
teered their time nearly 29 percent of the population.
National Volunteer Week began in 1974, when the late
President Richard Nixon signed an executive order estab-
lishing the Week as an annual celebration of volunteering.
Every president since has signed a proclamation promoting
the Week. Additionally, governors, mayors, and other elect-
ed officials make public statements and sign proclamations
in support of National Volunteer Week.
With a mission to inspire, connect, engage and support
volunteers who make a difference in our community
Volunteer Jacksonville's is committed to ensuring that vol-
unteer service is meaningful and effective. Since 1973,
Volunteer Jacksonville has pursued its vision of a communi-
ty committed to volunteer service that makes a difference.

Traveling Exhibit Examines African
American Hair And Culture
On April 15, 2005, African American Beauty: A Journey
Through Time, a one-of-a-kind traveling exhibit sponsored
by Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural, opened at the Armour
J. Blackburn University Center at Howard University. in
Washington, D.C. The exhibit offers a rare look into and
examination of African American hair care since the 1700s.
Co-sponsored by the National Council of Negro Women and
the National Beauty Culturists' League, the exhibit will be
open to the public until April 30, 2005. "For centuries
African American hair care has been a source of curiosity,
challenge and inspiration," said A'Lelia Bundles, host of the
national unveiling of African American Beauty: A Journey
Through Time and great-great-granddaughter of Madam C.J.
Walker, a daughter of former slaves and self-made mil-
lionaire who revolutionized the hair care and cosmetics
industry for African American women early in the 20th cen-
tury. African American Beauty: A Journey Through Time
showcases rare African American hair care artifacts, memo-
rabilia and photographs, reveals plantation beauty practices,
and celebrates major figures in African American hair care
history, including Madam C.J. Walker and Madam Annie
The exhibit is especially useful in explaining the evolu-
tion of beauty salons and barbershops and the development
of African American hair care products. Exhibit items,
including a selection of archival photographs, are from the
personal collection of African American hair expert Dr.
Willie Morrow and reference portions of his book and film
"400 Years Without A Comb." Dr. Morrow owns over 100
hair-related patents, has written more than 20 books on the
subject of African American beauty and is credited with the
commercialization of the first American afro pic comb.
"Hair and history are intertwined for African Americans like
they are for no other people," said Cheryl Morrow, exhibit
spokesperson, historian and daughter of Dr. Morrow.
"African American Beauty: A Journey Through Time exam-
ines the social, political and cultural influences that shape
the relationships that many African Americans have with
their hair, as well as hair trends -- including braids, relaxers
and natural styles -- that began in African American commu-
nities but are now widely popular throughout the United
States and abroad."

Not All Blacks Were Slaves
(PRWEB) April 16, 2005 -- The Garifuna came to Belize
from the Bay Islands of Honduras on '19th November 1802.
They are the result of the intermingling of African slaves,
Carib Indians and some Europeans. Garifuna dominate the
southern towns of Punta Gorda and Dangriga as well as the
villages of Seine Bight, Hopkins, Georgetown and Barranco.
Some Garifuna are also residing in Belize City and
In the early 1800s, the Garifuna, descendants of Carib
peoples of the Lesser Antilles and of Africans who had
escaped from slavery, arrived in the settlement. The Garifuna
had resisted British and French colonialism in the Lesser
Antilles until they were defeated by the British in 1796.
After putting down a violent Garifuna rebellion on Saint
Vincent, the British moved between 1,700 and 5,000 of the
Garifuna across the Caribbean to the Bay Islands (present-
day Islas de la Bahia) off the north coast of Honduras.
http://www.seiriebight.com/news.htm explains: The original
name by which the Caribs were known, Galibi, was corrupt-
ed by the Spanish to Canibal and is the origin of the English
word cannibal; Extremely warlike and ferocious. The Carib
language was spoken only by the men, while the women
spoke Arawak. This was so because Arawak women, cap-
tured in raids, were taken as wives by the Carib men.
Though commonly referred to as "Garifuna", the people
are properly called "Garinagu" and the culture and language
are "Garifina". The Garinagu are recent arrivals to Belize,
settling the southern coast of Belize in the early 19th centu-
ry. The epic story of the Garinagu begins in the early 1600's
on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent. In 1635, two Spanish
ships can ing Nigerian slaves floundered and sank off the
coast of St. Vincent. The. slaves that survived and swam
ashore found shelter in the existing Carib Indian settlements.
Over the next century and a half, the two peoples intermixed,
intermarried and eventually fused into a single culture, the
Black Caribs or Garinagu. They were never slaves. Read

Cardinal Ratzinger was European was less important than
his conservative views. "We would have hoped for someone

"It is a daunting position to have been called to and we

would be elected.
Archbishop Tutu, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who
helped galvanise international opinion against racist
apartheid rule in South Africa, told Reuters last week an
African or Latin American Pope would reflect the growth of
Catholicism in the developing world.
He also said he hoped Pope Benedict would lift the
Church's ban on condoms, viewed by many African govern-
ments and health experts as one of the best ways to halt the.

Ee-De: Mr. Up & Down, New Smooth Vocalist
by Rych McCain
NME Records out of Atlanta, Georgia has introduced a new, hand-
some, crooning sensation that is attracting massive amounts of atten-
tion from excited ladies everywhere. He is singer Ee-De aka Mr. Up
& Down. The Wilson, North Carolina native's name is Eric Danell.
While he was in high school, Ee-De joined a vocal group but had no
intentions of doing anything professional with music. It was only after
doing a couple of gigs as a solo act that the demand for his services
became such, he threw his hat in the music ring for real.
During this period, he was also an outstanding basketball player .
and turned down several athletic scholarship offers to pursue a singing
career. Ee-De reminisces, "I'm from a small town, Wilson, North -
Carolina, but there are a lot of big hearts there. I went to the schools
there and my teachers kept me motivated. My father is a singing
Pastor, I'm a "PK," (preacher's kid), so music has been involved in my
family and myself, my whole life. Music pretty much chose me. There
was no negotiation. I started out playing sports i.e., basketball and
baseball which I became real fond of, but my junior year in high
school, the music just started over powering everything in my life.
First, I went to New York, tried that for a little minute. You know I'm
a country boy and they be running wild out there."
He continues, "As a teenager, I got to experienced that and came
back to North Carolina. Then I moved to Los Angeles and stayed for Ee-Deaka Eric Dane (Photo2005 Andre B
Murray/A Bern Agency Photo)
about three years. That was my first time stepping out by myself. I met
a lot of people and learned how to move,around and maneuver-ar6und the studio, little tricks with the mic and
tricks with the board and all that."
While Ee-De was in LA, he hooked up with some producers called the "Platinum Brothers," They made a two
song demo. The Platinum Brothers relocated to Atlanta and' Ee-De followed. They then completed an entire
album and Ee-De was signed to NME Records after a showcase where their reps were present. His debut single
has been release "Let's Get To It," and is in heavy rotation on BET. Ee-De is already being compared to the likes
of Marvin Gaye and Al Green when it comes to weaving silky smooth vocals to woo and place women under a
delirious hypnotic state of sexual fantasy.
When asked to personally describe his music, Ee-De responds, "It's soulful, addictive, sexy, passionate, so you
kind of know where I'm going with this. Also it's a lot of energy in it. There's something up, there for the streets,
corporate people, men and women, so it's a full stack." In referring to his new album he says, "I put a lot of time
into it. I wrote and co-wrote everything on this album. I didn't produce, but in the near future it's coming."
When asked to describe the musical atmosphere in Atlanta where he lives, Ee-De is upbeat. "The Krunk is
very commercial right now. There is a lot more talent than what is out in the forefront. The Krunk thing is doin'
its thing, but the R&B scene, the alternative, the rock, the pop.and all of that. Atlanta is becoming the next Mecca
for music. It's a beautiful place to be right now."
On stage, Ee-De performs with a live band or to tacks depending on the situation. In describing his on stage
show he sits up, "It's energetic man, but at the same time it's soulful, a little laid back. I like to take miy show
through all of the emotional changes just like my album. It ain't you just sitting there looking at me dance or what-
ever. I'm going to break it down, then I'm going to pick you back up, then bring you half way. I want to please
everybody sitting in those chairs."
With his silky smooth music, charm and good looks, Ee-De is well on his way to accomplishing his mission.

Rapper Earl Simmons aka DMX should consider a
career as a Demolition Derby driver. According to New
York City police, the rapper was arrested over the weekend
and charged with driving with a suspended license and
released, after he hit a car that slammed into a police cruis-
er on the Major Deegan Expressway. Two police officers
were treated for minor injuries. Simmons was slapped in
the pokie last year for weapon and drug possession and
criminal impersonation following an attempt to steal a car
then crashing into another vehicle through a parking lot
gate at New York's Kennedy Airport.
Whitney's hubby Bobby Brown was a "no-show," in a
Massachusetts court regarding his non-payment of child
support for his two children living in the Boston area. Sean
"P Diddy" Combs left his deal with Universal Music for
one with Warner Music who will market and distribute
Bad Boy's new releases at a money guzzling 50% share.

azine. Meanwhile, two ex-employees i.e., former Editor-
In-Chief Kim Osario and former VP Michelle Joyce have
filled gender discrimination suits against the magazine.
The Source co-owner David Mays denies the allegations
sighting that neither woman raised those issues while
employed at The Source and added that Osario had sex
with a number of high profile rappers during her tenure.
The Amityville Horror (MGM Pictures and
Dimension Films), opened up number one at the box
office over the weekend. This is scariest movie I've seen in
over 20 years! If you don't have the heart and guts to have
the daylights frightened out of you and you are the type to
have nightmares behind movies, stay away from this one!
It stars Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George as George and
Kathy Lutz, the real-life couple who claimed their newly
purchased home in Amityville, Long Island, New York was
haunted so badly that the demons and spirits drove them to
desperately vacate the premises in a rush after spending
only 28 days in the house.
The real-life house did have a true horrific past. On
November 13, 1974, Ronald "Butch" DeFeo went
through the house in the middle of the night and shot every
member of his family to death while they slept. A year later
the Lutz's moved in and ended up fleeing for their lives
with the events that happened to them or so they claim. In
1977 Jay Anson wrote and released a book titled The
Amityville Horror. The current owners, of the house say the
only disturbances they have experienced are the hordes of
curious lookie-loos who drive by, convinced that the house

Gunman Puts Car
'Out Of Its Misery'
LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA, Fla. A man with car
trouble is in trouble after shooting five rounds into the hood,
of his Chrysler '!to put my car. out of its misery." John
McGivney, 64, shot his 1994 LeBaron with a .380-caliber
semiautomatic, Broward County sheriffs deputies said.
\\hen the property manager at.his apartment complex
asked what he was. doing, McGivney said, "I'm putting my
car out of its misery."
He tucked his gun in a pocket and went back inside. He
was arrested Friday on a misdemeanor charge of discharging
a firearm in public. He posted $100 bail Saturday.
McGivney said the car has been giving him trouble for
years arid had "outlived its usefulness.".He called the shoot-
ing "dumb" and worries he will be evicted. But he doesn't
regret it. "I think every guy in the universe has wanted to do
it," McGivney told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "It was
worth every damn minute in that jail."
L.A. Attorney Moonlights
As A Porn Film Star
LOS ANGELES Crimiinal defense attorney Ronald S.
Miller does more than file his briefs--he also takes them off.'
Miller has spent daN s in fi-ont of a judge and nights'in front
of a camera as Don Holly\vood-- porn star.
Miller,'56, who has performed in more than 90 films in
the past seven years, tells his clients about his night job and
says he has had no trouble balancing the two 'careers. His
wife, a former, accountant, is also a porn star.
"My whole life, I've been one of those people who sees
the wet paint sign and has to go up' and touch it to see if it's
wet," said Miller, who is currently working on 30 to 40
cases. "I want to experience everything, try everything."
Ethics expert and attorney Arthur Margolis said Miller
isn't breaking any rules moonlighting as a porn actor.
"There isn't anything more unethical about that than
being 'an actor or a novelist or somebody who sells frozen
yogurt," Margolis said. "The only thing you have to be care-
ful of, as you would in any other industry, is you don't do
anything criminal or unethical in the sense of dishonesty."

Jaguars Have 21st Overall
Pick In 2005 NFL Draft
The 2005 NFL Rookie Draft begins Saturday, April 23
and the Jacksonville Jaguars could fill one of several needs
on offensive line, pick a wide receiver or maybe even tight
end with the 21st overall pick.
Jacksonville is also looking for another cornerback after
releasing starter Dewayne Washington and backup Juran
Bolden. "Outside of quarterback and defensive tackle, we
feel like there isn't a position on the team that we wouldn't
want to make more competitive," coach Jack Del Rio said
The offensive is the most logical choice. Starting left
tackle Mike Pearson is still recovering from reconstructive
knee surgery and entering the final year of his contract. The
Jaguars would be able to get some insurance by drafting
Oklahoma's Jamaal Brown or Washington's Khalif Barnes
with the 21st pick.
Or they could go another direction on offence. Wide
receiver Jimmy Smith turned 36 in February and 2004- first-
round pick Reggie Williams was a disappointing rookie. The
ninth overall selection a year ago, Williams caught just 27
passes for 268 yards'despite starting every game.
Two other positions, tight end and running back, also
might be addressed, but not likely in the first round.
Starting tight end Kyle Brady, used primarily as a run-
blocker last season, turned 33 in January. And promising sec-
ond-year pro George Wrighster missed most of the year with
a bulging disk in his back that required surgery.
