someone creates changes.
Relatives, friends and neigh-
bors are supportive at the time of
a death, during the wake and

thoughtful expressions. After the.

PLANO, Texas-- An African American church, in a pre-
dominantly white side of town, filed a religious discrimina-
tion lawsuit today against the Wichita County Appraisal
In the lawsuit, the Full Gospel Powerhouse Church of
' God in Christ accuses the appraisal district of violating the
Constitution by denying them tax exempt status on property,
while granting it to other churches in the same geographical
area and under the same circumstances.
"Full Gospel Powerhouse Church is suffering unequal
treatment," said Hiram Sasser, director of litigation for
Liberty Legal Institute. "It is shameful that the appraisal dis-
trict is trying to tax this church out of existence."
Shortly after the Full Gospel Powerhouse Church moved
to their new location, the church sanctuary burnt down.
During the last three years while the church has not had a
building on the property, they had been required by the
appraisal district to pay taxes on the land, despite their tax-
"The church burned, and they tried to rebuild. Right
when they had the money to rebuild for themselves, the tax
collector swooped down and grabbed it," Sasser said.
Other churches in the area have not been penalized

"There's Always Something

Stage Aurora's CROWNS Is Marvelous!
"Our crowns have already been bought and paid for.
All we have to do is wear them." -James Baldwin
The ladies, including my Jacksonville Links sisters
attending Stage Aurora's CROWNS production last
weekend were dressed for the occasion! And you have
one last chance to see the production this weekend
August 26-28, 2005 at FCCJ's Ezekial Bryant
Auditorium on the Northside. This is a must see! Get
those fabulous hats out! Or go sans your chapeau. But
go! You'll be so delighted!
With a stage backdrop adorned with a miscellany of
fabulous hats, in association with The Jacksonville
Chapter, Links, Inc. and WZAZ 1408 Gospel, the
Stage Aurora Theatrical Company put on a fabulous per-
formance last weekend with their CROWNS production!
It was in old-fashioned hand clapping, fan waving and
singing time! It was 'church' on stage and in the audi-
ence. The entire cast was wonderful! I can't say enough
about the brilliance of Stage Aurora's Director Darryl

book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry,
gives witness to churchwomen and their hats. The musi-
cal also provides a historical perspective on the roots of
African women and their head adorning. The CROWNS
book authors were absolutely correct when they wrote,
"Countless black women would rather attend church
naked than hatless. For these women, a church hat, flam-
boyant as it may be, is no mere fashion accessory; it's a
cherished African American custom, one observed with
boundless passion by black women of various religious
denominations. A woman's hat speaks long before its
wearer utters a word. It's what Ms. Deirdre Guion calls
'hattitude'....There's a little more strut in your carriage
when you wear a nice hat. There's something special
about you." If a hat says a lot about a person, it says even
more about a people-the customs they observe, the sym-
bols they prize, and the fashions they fashion."
The musical captures the essence of the book beauti-
fully. In 1998, photographer Michael Cunningham was
stirred to photograph African American women in their
stunning church hats. Mr. Cunningham engaged many
enthusiastic women. Later Craig Marberry convinced
Cunningham that oral histories should accompany the
portraits. Published in 2000, the book CROWNS was a
smashing success and Ms. Regina Taylor wrote a stage
adaptation of the book.
The Jacksonville production is superb!
Stanton High School's Class of 1933 Celebrates
The members of Stanton High School's Class of 1933
are examples of 'living life to the fullest." The very spry
seniors celebrated their 73rd class reunion at the
American Beach Villa of Michael and Florida Star
reporter Mrs. Marsha Dean Phelts. Classmate Ms.
Ruth Stewart of Houston, TX called her classmates dur-
ing the reunion at American Beach.
The reunion is always a family affair of classmates
with their children, grandchildren and great grandchil-
dren having fabulous inter-generatiorial fun and the 1933.
class members are already planning for the 74th in 2006!
They are such a beautiful testimony of life!
Footnote from last week: Ms. Kelly Martin, Esq.
who was featured in one of the photos in the' Brooks-
Smith wedding segment was the flower girl in Dr.
Geraldine Williams Smith's (mother of the bride) wed-
ding. Ms. Martin and her mother also featured in last
week's photo are cousins of Dr. Smith and the bride. In
addition to being cousins, the new Mrs. Brooks and Ms.
Martin are good friends.
It is indeed a small world as Ms. Martin and my older
son were classmates from grade school through Bishop
Kenny High School graduation. I recall so well that Ms.
Martin, Esq. was a Spelling Bee champion during both
her grade school and high school years.

Silly Talk Sad Results
1. Jacksonville city government vs Citizens.
For years city government representatives have told its citizens that the
toxic ash is OK, not to worry, we have studied it and it is OK. Well now
reality comes crashing in to events and the city's representatives are
offering the citizens $75 million in damages and will clean up the ash sites.
This is certainly not a prudent use of your tax dollars by the city's
representatives. All the citizens wanted from the beginning was a safe
place to live and enjoy life. The city's representatives failed them.
The city's representatives should have never put the citizens in harms way of
2. Jacksonville Jaguars is primarily a business.
They are having a problem selling their product. Facts are these: the
stadium is too large for the market (they just realized this and covered
seats), their performance is below the enthusiastic level that draws a
crowd of ticket buyers. These are business problems.
Does the team collectively purchase the tickets not sold and donate
them? No.- They black-out the coverage of the "product," their
Well, realizing this is a business, do you suppose other businesses will
follow suit? Will Sears close their doors because sales are down? Will
Gate close its stations because business is down? I doubt it.
Only in the business of the GAME of FOOTBALL will this practice be followed.
3.Truth in Government.
There is a comparison between the Lottery and Incentives.
Both promised great things for the state. Both failed.
When the Lottery was "sold" to the state, it was promised that all funds of
the lottery would be in addition to the budgeted public school funds.
Well, that was a lie. Every year since lottery came to Florida the
budgeted amount for public schools has dropped.
Incentives are said to be "a MUST" to bring business to Jacksonville. That
too is a lie.
We have given millions in incentives and received pennies in return.
If a business cannot afford to relocate to Jacksonville without
incentives they are insolvent. We do not want them.

Double Celebration: 60 Years of Marriage for
Parents, 40 Years in the Ministry for Husband
SAVANNAH, Ga. -
Mrs. Susie King of
served as host Saturday to
approximately 350 guests
as she honored her par-
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Morris
(Eliza) Shell for their 60th
Wedding Anniversary. All
of the couple's five chil-
dren attended the grand
occasion. Mr. Shell is an
Elder in the Garden City
Congregation where he
and his wife have served
as members for fifty
years.But, the anniversary
of King's parents was just
a part of the celebration.
Her husband, Elder Larry
King, Circuit Overseer for
Louisiana experienced a
big surprise. His wife
decided to combine her
parents' wedding anniver-
sary with her husband's
40th anniversary commit-
ment to God and the
church as a Jehovah
The occasion truly sur-
prised Larry. The event
was held in Pooler,
Georgia, ten miles from
Savannah. Unaware of the
surprise, Larry casually
appeared at the hotel
wearing a cap and sneak-
ers to visit his in-laws
prior to what he thought
was a planned anniversary
celebration that he antici-
pated would be held later
in the evening. But that
was not the case, because
more than 300 Jehovah
Witness members and
about twenty-five of his
family members were
there waiting to greet
him, including his three
living aunts, his deceased
father's only sister and his
deceased mother's only
two sisters. He was aston-
ished that his wife could
pull off such a spectacular
surprise that brought
guests from across the U.
S. to share in celebrating
Brother King's family
presented him with a
plaque and many other
gifts. He received praises
from his in-laws and
members of his faith. Mr.
& Mrs. Shell were also
presented a gift from
Larry's family as well as
gifts from their children
and relatives in addition
to their church family and
friends. It was truly a

GRAND THEFT-On Sunday, August 21, 2005 at 1:15
a.m. a police officer was dispatched to Wal-Mart Store,
located at 8808 Beach Blvd. in reference to a theft. Upon
arrival, police officer met with a 53 year old female (vic-
tim), who stated that she walked to her car after shopping
inside the Super Wal-Mart Store. She told the police offi-
cer that a 20-year-old male (suspect) approached her next
to her car and asked her if she was interested in selling
her car. The suspect told her his name was "Kendrick."
The suspect then told her that she had a "Spider" in her
hair. As she was shaking her head attempting to remove
a fictitious spider from her hair, the suspect grabbed her
purse from the hood of her car. The suspect then jumped
into his car and fled out of the parking lot with her purse.
The victim positively identified the suspect from a photo
spread. The police officer obtained an arrest Warrant for
the suspect's arrest. The suspect was arrested, transport-
ed to jail, and charged with a felony.

,timi), and a 27-year-old male (suspect) who advised that
both of them were engaged in a physical confrontation.
The suspect and victim had scratches and blood on their
faces. The victim advised that she had injuries from a
week ago. However she also said that her boyfriend had
hit her in the face and chest. The police officer observed
that the phone had been pulled from the wall and the
entire apartment turned over. Both the behaviors of the
victim and suspect lead the police officer to believe that
neither party would separate and there was a likelihood
of continued violence. The police officer was unable to
determine the primary aggressor in this incident. The vic-
tim and suspect have a one-year-old child together who
was present during this incident. The police officer left

his hands inside a cable television box on the outside of
building "F" at the above location. The police officer
then walked up behind the suspect and illuminated him
with his flashlight. The suspect became startled and
dropped two of the cable filters on the ground. The police
officer had the suspect sit on the ground. As the suspect
sat on the ground he dropped a knife from his hands. The
officer put handcuffs on the suspect. The police officer
asked the suspect what he was doing. He replied that a
friend lived in one of the apartments complex. The offi-
cer asked the suspect why was he in the cable box. He
replied that he is a handy man, and uses the parts to
repair stuff. He then admitted to stealing the cable tele-
vision services. At that time the police officer placed the
suspect under arrest. A search of the suspect revealed two
cable filters, and two cable connectors. A marijuana
"roach", and a metal crack pipe was found in his right
front pocket. The listed property was placed in the prop-
erty room. The suspect was read his rights, arrested,
transported to jail, and charged with a misdemeanor.

ducted a traffic stop on a 1999 green Honda. Upon mak-
ing contact with the 26-year-old female driver (suspect),
the police officer, asked for her driver's license. The sus-
pect stated that she did not have her Florida driver's
license with her. A check through NCIC/FCIC revealed
the following: License suspended indefinite for failure to
pay 12 traffic fines from 7/14/03 to 3/17/05. The suspect

it has been over between them for some time now. She
also told the officer that she has an injunction for protec-
tion against him, and that she is pressing charges against
him for destroying her apartment on 8/17/05. The suspect

ber he was calling from. There was no listed account res-
idence for his number. The police officer advised her to
