The July 27 traumatic
and sudden death of Arthur
E. Teele, Jr. took many by
surprise, but the attention
drawn around his fatal exit
was not surprising. For six
solid days the media net-
works focused on Teele's
tragic end. of life. Many
solely blame the news media
for sentencing and executing
Teele without due process in
the court of law. Teele was a
brilliant attorney who direct-

ice. Teele's presence was
powerful and commanding.
Teele, who spent most of his

both wearing a mask and
one was carrying a gun.
According to the victim, at
about 11:20 p.m., he
returned to his vehicle
from the restaurant and as
he unlocked the driver's
door, he saw the two males
approaching him while

She's Black, She's Female. Will

She Be A Brunswick First?


BRUNSWICK, Ga.-
To many of the 16,000
residents of Brunswick,
Elaine Brown is new to
the area and they are
questioning what made
her move to Brunswick.
For others, she is a dream
come true and truly wel-
comed as she came with
some Brunswick history.
She is related to the
Delany sisters, Sadie and
Bessie who were over
100 years of age when the
book, Having Our Say:
The Delany Sisters' First
100 Years was written.
For residents of
Brunswick who read the
book or saw the movie,
you perked with pride
when you learned that
Sadie's first teaching job
was in Brunswick. And
just that knowledge
alone, will help you to
understand when Elaine
Brown says, "I have
Brunswick roots, I have
Brunswick love, I have
Brunswick interest and I
am for the people of
Brunswick," she is seri-
ous.
Even though her
mother, who was a facto-
ry worker in the ghettos
of North Philadelphia,
raised Elaine, her father
was Dr. Horace Scott, a
prominent Philadelphia
physician. He and his
wife were. co-founders of
The Links, a prestigious
black American organiza-
tion.
So, when many hear
of her ties with the Black
Panther Party as the first

ident, Lawrence Summers.

Founded In April 1951 By Eric O. Simpson
First African American Inducted Into I
The Florida Press Hall Of Fame I


This month has brought
fresh, tragic evidence of the
fragility of human life. Most
of us needed no reminders.
Nonetheless, the horrible
killings in London and Egypt
and the continuing violence in
Iraq, Afghanistan and other
parts of the world have under-
scored how exposed the inno-
cent everywhere are to those
\\ho use ideology as an
excuse for murder.
These tragedies happened
across an ocean and half a
world away. Yet, their rever-
berations beat against our
front doorsteps, even affecting
the way we travel to and from
work.
Grief for those lost abroad,
and concerns about our own
safety now seem as palpable
as the heavy summer heat as
the National Urban League
undertakes its annual confer-
ence in Washington, D.C.
But those feelings are far
from debilitating. Instead, in
this the Urban League's nine-
ty-fifth year, these acts of vio-
lence ultimately remind me,
and the thousands who will
join us here, of what determi-
nation in ourselves and faith
in the future-in common
human decency-can achieve.
Ninety-five years ago
African Americans were
marooned in a vast sea of cru-
elty in America, especially in
the' South, where they were


subjected to a brutal reign of
economic intimidation and
murderous physical violence.
What that produced, how-
ever, was not dejection and
submission, but the great
movement, of people called
the Black Migrations-by
which millions of southern
blacks, unable to enjoy their
"inalienable rights" of citizen-
ship below the Mason-Dixon
Line, voted with their feet and
headed North and West.
The Urban League was
formed to help these black
migrants, most of whom had
come from the rural areas of
the South, adjust to the bewil-
dering demands of modem
urban living.
The measure of freedom
and fairness they found was
often not much better than in
the South. But in the differ-
ence between the. one place
and the other lay opportunity;
and African Americans seized
it with an unshakable faith
that led forty years ago to the
landmark civil rights and vot-
ing rights acts of the mid-
1960s.
What has happened to the
American political landscape
and America as a whole sipce
President Lyndon Johnson
signed the Voting Rights Act
on August 6, 1965 has justi-
fied their faith.
But the work the Voting
Rights Act initiated is far from

finished, as recent controver-
sies about voting irregularities
and discrepancies and com-
plaints of voter intimidation
have shown.
That's why it's imperati e
that Congress not wait for the
2007 deadline to approve an
extension of the Voting Rights
Act. They should do it now-
and strike another blow for
democracy .by legislating full
voting rights for the citizens
of our Nation's Capitol.
Washingtonians are entitled to'
a voting member of Congress,
two voting members of the
Senate, and' all the voting
privileges other Americans
have.
That's also why the Urban
League intends to vigorously
participate in the debate over
the fitness of Judge John
Roberts for the U.S. Supreme
Court, which has had an enor-
mous impact on America's
great movements for justice.
Before we make a judgment
about the President's nominee,
we want to know where Judge
Roberts stands on the rights
and freedoms for all
Americans: on voting rights,
on civil rights, on affirmative
action, and economic oppor-
tunity for all.
We want a Supreme Court
that respects the progress of
the past fifty years, and one
with an independent mind and
a compassionate heart. So we
must now exhaustively
review his writing, his deci-
sions, and whom he chose to
fight for as a lawyer. And we
expect the United States
Senate to do the same.
However, our energies are
not captured solely by

Washington. The work of our
one hundred-plus affiliates in
34 states and the District of
Columbia has kept us all too
aware that too many in
America still languish outside
the gates of opportunity.
Thus, we pledge to work
to achieve an opportunity
compact for America-a frame
of reference and action that
will devote more resources to
helping every willing
American gain a good job
with good wages; to increas-
ing the -prospects for every
American, especially African
Americans, to become home-
owners; to spurring business
ownership and entrepreneur-
ship among African
Americans; and to inspiring.
greater academic achievement
among African-American
youth.
This is our way of keeping
faith with the Urban League's
historic mission-now needed
more than ever in today's
global economy.
I also can't help but think
that our plan to help others
more actively embrace our
responsibilities as citizens of a
democracy is one way ordi-
nary Americans can effective-
ly and dramatically respond to
the threat of terrorism, too.
True, this isn't the 1950s
and 1960s, but today all
Americans should recognize
that in many ways we
Americans are still fighting
for our freedom and for the
advance of democracy and
decency-and that to do so
effectively and fearlessly we
need to keep faith in the
power of the faith of our fore-
mothers and forefathers.

"There's Always Something
Happening On The First Coast"
"An Evening With Mrs. Carol Mundy"
"When you're meant to collect, God will make it happen
and when you have purpose, you find fulfillment", stated
Mrs. Carol Mundy, collector extraordinaire recently when
the Jacksonville Beach Elementary Preservation Fund, Inc.
welcomed her to the beaches community for an evening of
sharing her work and a small portion of her extensive collec-
tion of African American photographs, manuscripts, artifacts
and memorabilia.
A member of the African American Genealogy Historical
Society in Orange County, Florida where she has served as
vice president arid founder of her own non-profit organiza-
tion, African American History Education and Culture
Society, Ms. Mundy spoke of her blessed calling to collect.
Listening to her one feels the calling she so passionately
describes. The collection has pictures from the African
Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church' s ministry during the
1900s, the Buffalo Soldiers and Billie Holiday, Miles Davis,
Quincy Jones, Joe Louis fights and black cowboy films. Ms.
Mundy shared that the Billie Holiday films have never been
shown and it has been necessary for her to be overly protec-
tive of her finds to prevent purported loss by technicians, etc.
The collection includes KKK memorabilia, which Ms.
Mundy explains as being very much a part of our African
American history.
The blessings for everyone is that Ms. Mundy wants to
share her collection and she wants to do this in an African
American setting. The collection includes newspapers dating
back to 1702 and the collection is extensive enough for sev-
eral museums to share exhibiting the collection. We learned
that there is an African American collectors database located
in New York City and that there is more to collecting than
just collecting as the items must be in a temperature con-
trolled environment to survive the elements. Ms. Mundy's
most valuable find is an Abolitionist's map of Africa (when
the colonization of Liberia was decided), lists of slaves and
their letters. Ms. Mundy has sagaciously developed a trust
that prevents the entire collection from being sold for one
hundred years following her death.
The Carol Mundy Collection is. the product of an avid
collector of African Americana who for thirteen years has
developed a collection which includes more than 4,000 arti-
facts and historical documents, states I'raci Sippel. The
evening with Ms. Carol Mundy was a soul inspiring evening
and the collection pieces she brought with her were so cap-
tivating. It was difficult to move from one piece to the other.
Let's hope that the First Coast is blessed with having at least
a portion of these treasures exhibited on a long-term basis!

"The Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.'s Regional Meeting"
The First Coast was 'the place' for the recent Eta Phi Beta
Sorority, Inc.'s 19th Biennial Southeastern Regional
Meeting. The theme for the meeting was "Eta Phi Beta
Women Providing Leadership and Services to Humanity"
with a pre-conference "Nu Style" activity featuring Mahalia
production's star Mrs. Alicia Carlyle, hat designer
Clarence Bryant and Ms. Rhonda Holt.
.Under the direction of Regional Director Mrs. Sharon
-Pritchett, the opening meeting began on Friday with greet-
ings from Eta Phi Beta's national president Mrs. Louise
Haskin Broadnax and Mayor John Peyton's designee
Chief 'Pete' Jackson.
The weekend activities included talent displays and the
Jacksonville chapter under the leadership of Mrs. Gloria
Torrence was the second place winner. At the Saturday
luncheon Mrs. JuCoby Peele gave a presentation on the
Clara White Mission and at the final public activity Ms.
Lucinda Campbell' of Miami was crowned 'Ms.
Southeastern Region'.
Eta Phi Beta was founded in 1942 to serve the needs of
African American business and professional women. The
eleven founders formed a sisterhood that would connect
Black women to each other professionally, provide a space
where they could express the highest standard of woman-
hood and share their gifts talents and skills with each other
and ultimately the world. There is also a Shad Club whose
members are husbands of active Eta Phi Beta Sorority mem-
bers.

that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hid-
den with Christ in God.

When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also
will be revealed with Him in glory.

Colossians 3:2-4 NASB

Coping with Death, Grief, and Loss Part II


Common Reactions to Loss:
Individuals experiencing grief from a
loss may choose a variety of ways of
expressing it, No two people will
respond to the same loss in the same
way. It is important to note that phas-
es of grief exist; however, they do not
depict a specific way to respond to
loss. Rather, stages of grief reflect a
variety of reactions that may surface
as an individual makes sense of how
this loss affects them. Experiencing
and accepting all feelings remains an
important part of the healing process.
Denial, numbness, and shock-
This serves to protect the individual
from experiencing the intensity of the
loss. Numbness is a normal reaction
to an immediate loss and should not
be confused with "lack of caring".
Denial and disbelief will dimin-
ish as the individual slowly acknowl-


edges the impact of this loss and
accompanying feelings.
Bargaining
At times, individuals may rumi-
nate about what could have been
done to prevent the loss. Individuals
can become preoccupied about ways
that things could have been better,
imagining all the things that will
never be. This reaction can provide
insight into the impact of the loss;
however, if not properly resolved,
intense feelings of remorse or guilt
may hinder the healing process.
Next Week: More
Common Reactions to Loss.

Teele conmuii~d t, in.i-I
politics. Teele made his exit
from the Democratic Partr in
the 1980 presidential election
of Ronald Reagan. He head-
ed the President-elect's
Transition Team. Reagan
immediately appointed Teele
chief of Li. S. Urban Nlass
Transportation
Administration. He is credit-
ed with bringing funding for
the elevated Miami-Dade
Metro Rail system and %with
providing federal funds for
the people mover in
Jacksonville. He alto
brought millions of dollars to
his alma mater Florida A &
M University as well as
transportation funds to
Tallahassee and other cities
nationwide.
After his stint at the
nation's capitol Teele
returned to Miami rather
than Tallahassee. Miami was
a lucrative market where Art
Teele wielded power for the
past two decades. He cham-
pioned the cause of the
Haitians and sought funding
for the revitalization of
Miami's Liberty City and,
Overtown communities. In
short time Arthur Teele, Jr.
would become ,the biggest
powerbroker in Miami. In a
1990 .election he unseated
his friend Barbara
McCollough Carey (of
Fernandina) in, a battle for
Dade County Commission.
His colleagues on. the
Commission twice elected&
him to serve as" chairman of
the Dade County
Commission. In 1997 he
was elected to the Miami
City Commission. Teele was
at the head of Miami's
Community Redevelopment
Agency. By 2001 Teele's fall
from grace was in the mak-
ing. Governor Jeb Bush sus-
pended Teele from the
Miami City Commission last
September (2004) for threat-
ening a police officer. The
U. S. Department of Justice
on July 14, 2005 indicted


him with multiple charges
of conspiracy. moneN
laundering, mail fraud and
\ ire fraud. The broadcast
and print media of Miami
had a holidaN and a feed-
ing frenzy. The personal
attacks on Teele proved to
be too much. Art ended
the media frenzy in prime
time at 6:00 p.m. in the
lobby of The Miami
Herald Newspaper. As he
la\ d\ing from a self
inflicted gunshot wound in
his mouth, Teele had the
strength and the presence
to remove the tubes that
paramedics tried to insert
to prolong his life that lay
shattered. Within hours of
his death, Miami Herald
columnist, Jim DeFede
was fired when the Herald
learned that DeFede had
secretly recorded a con-
versation with Teele
moments before the sui-
cide.
Miami building con-
tractori Raynard Williams
(Fernandina native) feels
that Teele snapped under
the tremendous pressures
mounting against him
daily. In the span of. a
year's time the invincible
Commissioner found that
the power he once wielded
had grinded to an end.
Teele's many supporters
and loyal friends remem-
ber him for his signature
as a faithful servant.
'Miami's former
Congresswoman Carrie
Meek a Tallahassee native
was with Teele the day of
his suicide and saw the
strangest expression
upon his face. U.S.
Rep. Alcee Hastings
states, "My heart goes out
to Art Teele's family. I
hope that all of us in South
Florida who benefited
from the good he did will
focus on the positives. He
was more than how he
died."


FAMU Professor Dr. C. U. Smith
and former student,
Congresswoman Corrine
Brown pay last respects at
funeral of their colleague and
friend, Arthur E. Teele, Jr.

I4,


Florida State Senator Al
Lawson, former State Senator
Betty Holzendorf and
Representative Curtis
Richardson sharing fond memo-
ries of Art Teele.
Congresswoman Corrine
Brown a classmate and Jong-
time friend of Art Teele finds
Teele's suicide a tragic means of
dealing with the charges levied'
against him. Brown says, "His
legacy may well be written
from \ary ing viewpoints yet I
remind -,ou that in all things,
the good that men and women
do, will in the eyes of those
who really care, outlive and
outshine all other utterances."
Final rites for former U. S.
Army Captain Arthur Earle
Teele, Jr., who was awarded
two bronze stars and the Purple
Heart for his services in
Vietnam were held Monday,,
August 1, 2005 at the Bethel
A.M.E. .Church in Tallahassee.
On a rain filled day, thousands
of mourners paid their last vis-
its to Art Teele at the memorial
and funeral services.

Brown continued from A-1
will be in Brunswick
Saturday for her fundrais-
ing banquet, will share
breakfast with citizens and
preach Sunday morning at
one of Brunswick's
churches-not for money
but because he believes in
what Elaine Brown. is
advocating for the home
of the Geechee people.
There are 7,000 regis-
tered voters in Brunswick.
Elaine hopes to get many
more registered to vote
before November when
the election for mayor will,
be held. Presently many of
the residents feel their
vote will not make a dif-
ference. Elaine says that
"when" she wins, they will
see a difference. Elaine
Green is running as a
Green Party candidate
even though the election is
non-partisan.
The city is small but
there is much wealth in the
towns surrounding it such
as Sea Island,. which has
one of the highest per ,
capital assets in the United
States. Presently, Atlanta,
Georgia 'is known as
America's Black Mecca.
Elaine Brown says that
this will change when she
becomes the first black
and the first female mayor
of Brunswick, Georgia.

federal Government Must International Civil Rights Walk
jo More To Combat Lupus. g,,. I. _-__I


By Congressman Kendrick B. Meek

It has been almost 40
f years since the Food and
Drug Administration has
approved a drug specifically
Acc n t th to treat lupus.
Lupas is a pirotot pical
autoimmune disease that
causes inflaminmation and tio-
sue damage to virtually an.
organ system in the body.
Kendrick Meek including the skin, joints and
ital organs such as the heart, lungs, kidneys and brain.
According to the Lupus Foundation of America, lupus
effects 1:5 to 2 million Americans and this disease dispro-
ortionately affects women of color. An estimated 1.5 to 2
millionn Americans are affected by the disease.
I recently introduced the Lupus Research, Education,
awareness, Communication, and Healthcare (REACH)
amendmentss of 2005, which will enhance federal biomed-
Pal research on lupus, increase public awareness, and
provee public and professional education about lupus. The
upus Reach Amendments build on legislation introduced
'y my mother and predecessor in Congress, former U.S.
:ep. Carrie P. Meek.
Experts estimate that of those who have lupus, one out of
ive is on disability. A large percentage of those with lupus
ire undiagnosed because it is one of the most unrecognized
diseases in the country. I realize this is of particular impor-.
ance to minority populations because lupus disproportion-i
tely affects blacks, Hispanics, Asians and other ethnic
minorities. They are two to three times more likely to have
upus than are whites.
The bipartisan legislation I have introduced will promote
collaborationn within the National Institutes of Health to
,nhance research to identify the causes of lupus, develop
nore effective treatments and hopefully find a cure, improve
upus data collection and epidemiology, and expand public
awareness and professional education programs aimed at
-eaching individuals who are at the greatest risk for lupus.
Kendrick Meek is a Member of Congress representing
northern Miami-Dade and southern Broward Counties. He
'is a member of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee
and the House Select Committee on Homeland Security.

The footsteps of
President Jimmy Carter,
Justice Thurgood Marshall,
and Rosa Parks were
embedded into the
International Civil Rights
Walk of Fame in 2004 when
the now famed civil rights
monument was created.
The International Civil
Rights Walk of Fame recog-
nizes those brave warriors of
justice who sacrificed and
struggled to make equality a
reality for all.
It is expected to enhance
the historic value, of this
geographic area, enrich the
cultural heritage, and aug-
mnent tourist attractions.
The shoes used to create
the footsteps will also be on
dsiplay during the unveiling
program.
"This is a lasting memo-
rial to those whose contribu-
tions were testaments to the
fact that human progress is
neither automatic nor
inevitable," said Xerona
Clayon, founder and execu-
tive producer of the
renowned Trumpet Awards
and a civil rights icon in her


own right. She.'is credited
with birthing the idea for the
International Walk of Fame.
Each year more foot sol-
diers will be added to the
Walk of Fame. There are
hundreds of additional
spaces designated for future
placements of worthy foot-
steps.
"We are looking forward
to buidling a monument to
the civil rights struggle that


Xernona Clayton
depicts every step taken
toward the goal of justice
and the tireless e\ertions
and passionate concern of
these dedicated individuals,"
added Ms. Clayton.
The Trumpet Awards
Foundation, Inc., producers
of the Annual Trumpet
Wards will salute the life
and works of Ms. Clayton.
Following the induction
of the honorees into the
Walk of Fame, Ms. Clayton
will be celebrated at a
"Diamond Year Birthday
Celebration" on Saturday,
August 27, at the Omni
Hotel at CNN Center.

Oren Williams: Young Actor-Athlete Developing His Game!
by Rych McCain
I have been featuring a CBS-TV movie where he
young actors from my per- portrayed Oscar winner .- ..
sonal family of Rych's Louis Gossett, Jr's grand- 9.. .., ..
spiritually adopted, hand- son.-------- ,
1 '-7


picked, child actors and
this week's feature is a
continuance from that very
special group. OREN
WILLIAMS is a gifted
teen actor-athlete whose
latest role is that of Keith
Ellis in the new Martin
Lawrence\, movie
REBOUND. William's
character is a ball-hogging
showboat who clashes
with coach Roy
McCormick (Lawrence).
Williams' first job was
a Broadway Department
Store ad at nine months
old. He became a child
model for the famed Ford
Modeling Agency.
Assignments for Sears,
Warner Bros., Tommy
Hilfiger, Macy's, Bugle
Boy, Mercedes-Benz and
others followed. Then the
national commercials
came including
McDonalds, Dunkin'
Donuts, Kinko's,
Montgomery Wards,
Addidas and a slew of oth-
ers. Williams' mom and
dad are actors and at two
years old, he was taught to
begin reading scripts. By
five, he had guest starred
on the NBC hit series
"ER." This led to other
roles i.e., SC-FI's
"Sliders," CBS's "City of
Angels", "The Amanda
Show" for Nickelodeon,
"Any Day Now" for
Lifetime and "For Your
Love," on the WB and
"For The Love of Olivia,"


Williams impressive
performance as Raymond,
Dr. Wilkes' (Rocky Carroll)
asthmatic son, on CBS's
"Chicago Hope" earned
him a Young Artist Award
nomination for Best
Supporting Young Actor in
a Prime Time Drama. On
the big silver screen,
Williams starred as
LisaRaye's son Jamal, in
Ice Cube's The Player's
Club. He has also appeared
in the movies Kingdom,
Come with Whoopi
Goldberg and Jada Pinket-
Smith and Ride or Die with
Duane Martin and Vivica A.
Fox. In Clifford: The Movie,
Williams was the voice of
Charley starring with the
late John Ritter.
Williams currently has a
three-picture contract deal
with 20th Century Fox
Pictures. The first of which
is the new Martin Lawrence
film Rebound. In real life
Williams is an actual bas-
ketball player. He has won
over 40 trophies and has
competed in the Junior
Olympics of the Amateur.
Athletic Union. He hopes to
play in the NBA in the
future. Did the children on
the film's team actually
play sports as well?
"They just cast them,"
said Williams. "They didn't
make sure they could play
basketball at all, so they
were really bad."
The cast did go through
a two-week camp to learn


Oren Willi'ams (Photo 2005 Andre'B. Murray/A Bern Agency Photo)


the fundamentals of the
game and conditioning.
Did the actors really
have to be in shape for the
filming? Williams lights up
with this answer, Yeah,
and if you get it wrong, they
make you do push ups. You
could tell the people who
were out of shape because
after two takes, the) were
really tired. That gym was
so hot, they had to bring in
three air conditioners, but
they couldn't use them on
the takes. But they cooled
us off because they had to
sprit sweat on us so it made
us look like we were wet
from the game, so it cooled
us off a little bit toward the.
takes but it really was hot in
that gym."
What was it like work-
ing with Martin Lawrence?
"He's wild and crazy
when the cameras are
turned on," said Williams,
"but he's a pretty cool and
normal guy when the cam-
eras are off."
And it had to be a kick to
be the on screen son of foxy
Wendy Raquel Robinson.


Williams has an upbeat
response to that as well,
"Wendy was great. My
mom would come to the
set and Wendy would say
to her "I'm his mom for a
few weeks," so she was
like a real motn and she
was pretty cool to work
with."
Being in the biz all of
his life, does he feel he's
having a normal child-
hood? Williams ponders
this one.
"It's not like a 'normal:
normal childhood." he
responded, "but I'm not
going to go crazy. I think
I'%e had a pretty normal
childhood. I still get to go
out side and play \with my
friends everyday and I go
to basketball practice."
He plays for the San
Fernando Jaguars and they
travel around to different
tournaments. Williams has
a younger brother Zachar.,
who is also an actor as
%well. You %\ill meet him in
an upcoming feature soon.

Wassup in Hollywood
By Rych McCain
The street dance battles that originated in South Central
Los Angeles with TOMMY THE CLOWN and his clown
dancers vs. the Krump dancers who were born from Tommy's
clown dancers, has spread world wide. Now everybody and
his momma are jumping on the bandwagon (like I predicted),
as a result of the film RIZE, that featured Tommy The Clown
and his movement. A prime example is that Atlantic Records
and The Jump Off, are presenting the Missy Elliott UK
STREET DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS.
Like their U.S., counterparts, the clown and Krump
"INNOVATORS"; the U.K., "IMMITATORS" will have B-
Boy pairs and crew street dance battles. Check out
www.jumpofftv. I told you all in my Tommy The Clown fea-
ture this would happen.
You all be on the look out for a dope and dynamic rapper
hailing out of my hometown, Omaha, Nebraska. His name is
SCRYBE (pronounced Scribe). My young home has a
unique bumpin' style and material that is definitely on its X\ a\
to blowing' up! He'll be in LA next month so expect a
photo/interview feature.
Happy birthday to one of Rych's special show-biz chil-
dren, Khamani Griffin, (August 1). He's 7. Happy birthday to
one of Andre' and Rych's favorite actresses, super tine
Meagan Good, (August 8). She's 24.
STEALTH; (Columbia Pictures), starring Josh Lucas,
Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx. Obviously, this film was shot
prior to the entire Oscar hoopla surrounding Jamie Foxx\'s
stellar performance in Ray. In fact, I interviewed Jessica Biel
for her role in Blade III and we discussed Stealth. Foxx w as
clearly not the headline star in this ensemble cast. Columbia
pictures is utilizing sound promo/marketing sense in capital-
izing on Foxx's Oscar status in pushing him out front to attract
Sie\ers to the theater.
The basic premise of this film centers around three special
elite test fighter pilots who made the grade to participate in a
top secret mission w ith an unmanned combat aerial vehicle
called EDI. Linfortunatel\. EDI goes \wild after being struck
b\ lightning whichh changed its programming. The three
human pilots ha'e to stop EDI before it starts world "ar Ill.
This film might be history making! \\ien ou are a black
person siting in that dark theater. \ou know the brotha sista
character is going to die somewhere in the film if some d\ ing
has to be done This ma\ be the first film here the brotha
w\ho dies get the star billing in the film's promotion.
Lisuall\. the black actor actress is just part of the cast and
their death is just part of the regular action. I know' m. gi\ ing
that part of the film a" a\ rinued man\ of \ou reading this
re iew off, but the observation had to be made. On the posi-
tive side, Stealih \as a pretty good film except for pilot kara
Wade (Jessica Bieli ejecting o\er North Korea and success-
full\ escaping through the North side Korean DMZ. No \%a\
that could e\er happen in real life.

height of the .. I
week, you have
little time for

nice rest. Take time out this
weekend just to pamper
yourself.
TAURUS (April 20 to

about this week.
You don't have to answer
rudeness in a like manner.
Rise above this and prove
you're the better person.
LEO (July 23 to

What you want
isn't always what .[ .
you need. Take
some time to get your prior-
ities in order. In the long run,

Bronson Announces Arrest

Of Two Men For Smuggling

Pot In Seafood Shipment

TALLAHASSEE--Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
announced the arrest of two South Florida Men who
allegedly tried to smuggle nearly 200 pounds of marijua-
na out of Florida in a refrigerated truck hauling seafood
to the New York-area.
Officers of Bronson's Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement arrested the pair at the department's north-
bound Interdiction Station along Interstate Highway 95,.
near Jacksonville, on Sunday, July 31 when a. routine
inspection of the"mixed seafood shipment revealed 13
boxes of marijuana interspersed with boxes of seafood.
Charged with trafficking in excess of 25 pounds of
marijuana--a first degree felony--were driver, Alejandro
Martin Ponce, 42, and co-driver Jose L. Ortega, 37,
Ponce and Ortega, who have previous 'criminal records,
were booked into the Nassau County Jail.
Authorities say the drugs have a street value of near-
ly $400,000. "Our officers are constantly vigilant at
Florida's borders, and these arrests underscore the value
of their efforts," Bronson said.
The Commisioner credited the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and the Nassau County Sheriff's
Department for their assistance-in the case.
The arrests caps a busy two years at the department's
22 interdiction stations, where officers during that peri-
od have recovered more than $8 million in narcotics,
stolen goods and contraband at the locations, including a
$4 million cocaine seizure, $600,000 in stolen medi-
cines, 60 stolen large-screen televisions and a truckload
of pilfered computer chassis.

Nineteen-year-old
Woody Cantrell of Palatka

Clay County Court for the
March 16, 2005 purse
snatching and battery of an

Cantrell and co-defen-

Drawdy's prosecution is
still pending. The 79-year-

injury and has still not fully
recovered. The ten year


prison i sentence given, to

scores how seriously the judge, Sheriff Beseler and Clay
County detectives take violent crimes committed against
the elderly, says Mary Justino of the CCSQ.

Fayson, Regina Guinyard, Gary Christopher, Beatrice Emanuel Thomas, Penny Emanuel
Fuiches, and Sadie Guinyard. Former swimmers and former residents in the community par-
ticipate each year.
The swimmers reminisced about the days when Guinyard was managing supervisor for
the pool, keeping services available for youths in areas of sports. Benjamin Polk remem-
beres utilizing the services of Jefferson Street during the 1950's. Polk, better known as
"Skindiver", was a regular at the pool with his scuba diving gear for underwater swimming.
Today, at age 82 Polk was back to enjoy another Guinyard Invitational.
Emrette Groomes and wife Monika enjoyed the event. He received a Lifetime
Achievement Award fgr outstanding achievement as an entrepreneur. Groomes was the first
coach for Stanton High School's Swim Team and was a former lifeguard at the Jefferson
Pool. He and Guinyard have been long time personal friends.
Judge Brian Davis competed and won First and Second Place medals in his events. He
presented Guinyard with a letter of appreciation from Mayor John Peyton, thanking him for
his dedication and commitment to the community as a positive leader.
Paul Mack Johnson, in town from Houston, Texas, watched her cousin Jasmin Sanders
compete. Pamela Nicholson and Harriet Sanders, Jasmin's mother, were elated as Jasmin
won several First Place medals in her age bracket events.
Julius Christopher, Gary Christopher, Brian Davis, and Reggie Benyard excited the
crowd while competing against Lynn Goshay, Bill Rivers, Horatio Brown, and Willie Roy
Thomas.
The crowd remained on the edge of their seats as the new Seahorses and the Jaguars med-
ley relay teams competed. Reggie Benyard, Alphonso Parker, Warren Thomas, and Lynn
Goshay won the medley relay. Willie Cromity won the Senior Men's Backstroke, an event
he wins easily each year. Reginald Tribune, Jovan Tribune, Zhan Bennett, Guinyard's grand-
sons, won several medals.
Timothy Reed came from California and proved he still has what it takes to compete. He
helped his team during the relay race and participated in diving demonstrations also featur-
ing Lynn Goshay. The Senior Men's Breaststroke was won by Bill Rivers who also accept-
ed the posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award for his brother Bobby River who was an
original Seahorse'swimmer and major supporter of the team.
Horatio Brown competed for his brother the late Butch Brown who was also an original
Seahorse swimmer. Planning is underway for the 2006 event. Interested persons should

Shaq Resigns With Heat For A Hot $100 Million
Three-time NBA champion Shaquille O'Neal re-signed with
the Miami Heat remaining the NBA's most dominant big man.
O'Neal signed a five-year contract worth a reported $100 million.
At age 33, O'Neal opted out of his previous contract -- which '
had one year left valued at $30.6 million -- to sign the new one,
the Miami Herald reported. By agreeing to a contract worth $20
million a year, O'Neal has given the Heat some room to operate
under the league's luxury tax and surround him with quality play-
ers, the Herald reported.
He has averaged 26.7 points and 12 rebounds over the course
of his 13-year career. He finished second in the MVP voting last Shaquille O'Neal
season. Last season, the 7ft linch, 325-pound center's first
year in Miami after being traded by the Los Angeles Lakers, O'Neal averaged 22.9 points
and 10.4 rebounds.
