JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville has been
selected as the Top Up & Coming Area for 2006, by
New York real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran.
Corcoran's picks will air during a special segment on
ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday,
"From the beach to the river, from golf to football
and from libraries and museums to theaters and con-
cert halls, Jacksonville has something to offer every-
one," said Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton. "We are
thrilled with this recognition and delighted that others
are noticing what a treasure we have here in Northeast
Florida: Jacksonville is one of the most livable and
beautiful cities in the world."
The top areas were chosen based on nine months of
intensive research, said Corcoran. Locations were
researched and compared based on desirability, new
developments, average home prices and percentage of
increase over the past 2 years. Corcoran then looked
at what made these areas so special, focusing on their
potential for growth and overall popularity. *
"We're thrilled to be recognized nationally as a
region on the rise with an unparalleled quality of life
and ongoing success in business development," said

Should a judge with a
long, clear and consistent
record of ruling against dis-
crimination victims be given
an opportunity.to have the
last word on civil rights laws
that impact the entire nation?
Should a judge who objects
to the cases establishing the
well-settled principle of one-
person, one-vote be placed in
a position to affect the voting
rights of millions of African
Americans throughout the
country? Should a judge who
boasted of membership in an

deciding vote that determines
whether affirmative action

Sandra Day O'Connor on the
U.S. Supreme Court. The
answers led the National
Urban League last week to
unequivocally oppose the
The National Urban

sion after a careful and
exhaustive review of Judge
Alito's record, judicial phi-
losophy, and professional
qualifications. Our examina-

tion reveals that, throughout
his career, Judge Alito has
demonstrated an insensitivity
to the fundamental principles
of civil rights and consistent-
ly interpreted the
Constitution and laws in a
manner that undermines
equality opportunity and
social justice. If elevated to
the Supreme Court, he is
likely to shift the Court even
further away from its role as

Our study found that
Judge Alito, throughout his
career, has vigorously
opposed affirmative action,
other civil .rights remedies
that protect millions of
Americans from discrimina-
tion to such a degree that it
seems to thwart his ability to
fairly apply our civil rights
laws. In case after case,
Judge Alito has ruled against
discrimination victims, crim-
inal defendants, and others
who turned to his court for
redress of wrongs. In fact,
not once, in 15 years, has
Judge Alito written a majori-
ty opinion in favor of an
African American alleging
discrimination. He has
demonstrated an unwavering
adherence to a rigid ideology
but seems to lack any under-
standing of how discrimina-

tion impacts real people and
why civil rights remedies
have been and remain neces-
Our report also reveals
that Judge Alito's opposition
to these fundamental princi-
ples is deeprooted and long-
standing. For example, Judge
Alito has expressed great
pride about his days as a ful-
Ion player in the Reagan
attack on affirmative action,
boasting in a 1985 job appli-
cation of his involvement in
cases in which the
Administration argued "that
racial and ethnic quotas
should not be allowed."
However, during his tenure,
Alito did not fight against
illegal quotas. Instead, he
actively worked to dismantle
legal affirmative action and
curtail the ability of the
courts to remedy discrimina-
tion against African
Americans, women and oth-
Among other things,
Alito helped write a Supreme
Court brief that included
some of the more bizarre and
misguided arguments we've
seen against affirmative
action. For example, in urg-
ing the Court to invalidate a
Michigan school policy that
allowed white teachers to be
laid off first in order to pro-
tect the jobs of black teach-
ers, he argued that affirma-
tive action was tantamount to
slavery because, he wrote, "it
may still advance some and
suppress others not as indi-
viduals but because of the
color of their skin." He also
surmised, "Henry Aaron
would not be regarded as the
all-time home run king, and
he would not have been a
model for youth, if the fences
had been moved in whenever
he came to the plate."
Judge Alito has been
nominated to succeed Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor, who
often was the all-important
"swing" vote on the Court in
civil rights cases. Although
clearly a conservative with
whom we often disagreed,
Justice O'Connor was a fair
and open-minded judge who
decided cases without a
unshakeable political ideolo-
gy. She was frequently the
deciding vote in decisions
affecting civil rights and in
many cases made the differ-
ence between maintaining
important civil rights protec-
tions and losing them alto-
gether. Justice O'Connor's
successor will have the
power to drastically tip the
balance of the Court from
conservative-leaning body to
a far right institution that
would tear down long-stand-
ing and fundamental civil
rights protections. Judge
Alito's stated opposition to
reasonable and established
civil rights remedies and vot-
ing rights protections, and
his consistent record of rul-
ing against victims of dis-
crimination make it likely
that he would do just that.
His record makes him
unsuitable for the U.S.

Tips For Families In
Children are simply smaller'
versions of adults. They know
stuff. They understand their
world and thbe think their own
thoughts. They have linle hearts
that get broken. Be kind to them
and speak to them respectfully
on all topics, especially death. If
you do they will feel comfort-
able coming to you in times of
trouble. If you don't, they'll be
forced to o elsewhere.
I Like you, children will
remember their first death, be it
a pet or a family member. They,
like you, will remember the
darndest details, really surpris-
ing things. So while chaos

Dealing \\ith Death
know\ it's okay to feel sad, con-
fused, and maybe a little help-'
less. Adults know loved ones
live in our hearts forever, but
that's something that must be
explained to a child. Nicely.
Death is part of life. It's
natural and has great order.
Treat it as such and children
will understand. Empower
them with language and allow
them their own thoughts. Make
them safe in their feelings and
they will love you for it.

Matthew W. Gilbert's 8th Grand Reunion
The Matthew W. Gilbert planners knew that they had
outgrown the previous Grand Reunion sites. Little did they
know that moving to the Hyatt Regency Hotel would also
be filled to capacity as in previous years. "We may have to
move this annual event to the Veteran's Memorial Coliseum
next year", stated Grand Reunion chair James Daniels.

who were there from 1952-1970. It is each year an extraor-

tour and relax as they boarded Carnival Cruise Lines 'Fun
Ship" Celebration. The five- day cruise to the Eastern
Caribbean included ports in Key West and Nassau with
embarkation from Jacksonville's Dames Point. The shore
excursions were equally enjoyable as the activities on
board; many enjoyed key lime pie and conch salad while
exploring the streets and restaurants in Key West. In
Nassau, many ventured over to Paradise Island while others
toured and shopped at the straw market.
Former Stantonians that traveled to Jacksonville to

Growth Hormone, Obesity Can Trigger Sleep Apnea In Some Kids
GAINESVILLE, Fla. --
SGrowth hormone helps hun-
Sdreds of children with a rare
-disorder that causes them to
gorge on food, but for some,
starting treatment can wors-
en a dangerous nighttime
University of Florida
researchers have found.
Sleep apnea disrupts
breathing during sleep and is
common among morbidly
obese children, including
those with Prader-Willi syn-
drome, a disease that com-
;-pels them to eat nonstop.
Researchers say that uncov-
ering how to treat obesity
and related problems in chil-
dren genetically wired to be
overweight could help them
better battle childhood obe-
sity in general.
Growth hormone has
shown to be one of the most
effective ways to treat chil-
dren and adults with Prader-
Willi. But UF researchers
found that starting treat-
Sments can worsen or trigger
sleep apnea in obese chil-
dren exposed to colds,
potentially leading to death,
according to findings pub-
lished online recently in The
Journal of Clinical
"Every kid we studied
had abnormal sleep at the
beginning, before growth
hormone," said Dr. Jennifer
Miller, a UF assistant pro-
fessor of pediatrics and the
study's lead author. "On
growth hormone, most of
them got better but not all of
them. The ones that got
worse tended to be school
age. Some of them were just
entering school and then
they were coming home
The researchers urge
doctors to monitor patients'
sleep before and during
treatment for signs of
obstructive sleep apnea,
such as loud snoring or
abnormal daytime sleepi-
ness. Sleep studies are rec-
ommended for all obese
children, not just those with
Prader-Willi, Miller added.
Prader-Willi syndrome is
caused by a rare chromoso-
mal defect and occurs in
only one of every 12,000 to
15,000 people, according to
the Prader-Willi Syndrome
Association. Children and
adults with the disease have
mental impairment, poor
muscle tone and appetites so
insatiable their parents often
have to lock up food. Many
patients become morbidly

approved in the United
States to treat Prader-Willi
in 2000, but several children
with the disease died after

All died in their sleep and

To understand the problem,
UF researchers decided to

However, upon completion of the interview, and further investigation, it was
determined that Mr. Bronner had no involvement and the warrant was withdrawn.
Mr. Bronner will not be implicated in any manner to illegal criminal activities and
said he is glad that he is a God serving deacon with Jesus always on his side.

One ninth grade health textbook tells students that "test-

the conclusion that ro\\ ing up means rejecting the \al-

from thousands of schools joined with hundreds of
organizations across America in celebrating sexual puri-
ty. The Da\ of Purity quickly spread to several foreign
countries. A list of some of the supporting organizations
is posted at Da1 OfPurirt.org.
More than 3 million American teenagers are infected

million teenagers become pregnant each year.
Twenty percent of the 1.3 million abortions per-

FAFSA 101: What Students Need To Know
(NAPSI)-How can you find out if you're eligible for
financial aid? In a word: FAFSA.
ASK THE EXPERT
The first step to financing a college education begins
with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or
FAFSA. Students must complete the FAFSA, which is
available through high school guidance offices, local
libraries or online at www.fafsa.ed.gov, and submit it
anytime after January 1 for the year in which a student is
applying for aid.
"Paying for college may not be as hard as families ini-
tially think," says Niartha Holler, spokesperson for Sallie
Mae, a leading "paying-for-college" company. "Planning
and meeting deadlines are key to the process, so college-.
bound students should complete their FAFSA before due
dates to increase their chances of getting free money to
pay for college."
Every high school graduate \ith a Social Security-
Number is entitled to free or inexpensive money, includ-
ing scholarships, grants and low-interest student loans, to
fund a college education. "Financial aid can be need-
based or merit-based," notes Holler. Even if families
think they do not qualify for financial aid, they should
still apply. she says. '
For information on the FAFSA, as well as on other
college-related resources, students and parents can visit
w-\\.CollegeAns\\er.com. The site offers a checklist to
help families gather documents needed to complete the
FAFSA, including information on income, investments
and taxes. It also provides access to a database contain-
ing more than 2.4 million scholarships worth over $15
billion in funds. In addition, users can find interacti\ve
calculators to estimate what a family may be expected to
contribute toward the cost of college.

The acting bug bit-Justin when he was seven. His
parents enrolled him into a drama group sponsored by
their church. The acting coach immediately spotted
Justin's potential. "He urged us to get an agent." said
That advice led the Martins to Joy Pur is. a children's
agent who had discovered Dakota Fanning and Kyle
Massey among other.famed child actors.
Purvis signed up Justin and proceeded to book him
for regional commercials and theater. But Purnis felt
Justin was destined for Hollv~\ood.
"This was a big step. and my husband and I prayed
for guidance." said Mrs. Martin. Ultimately. they took
Justin to Los Angeles in 2004 for pilot season, a five
month-period (January to May) when television produc-
ers look for fresh faces for the ne\\ TV season.
The competition is fierce as hundreds of thousands
of talented children and adults gather in LA to \ie for
Justin, who had an astonishing high call-back rate;
earned a part in one episode each in "The Bernie Mac
Show" and-"Malcolm in the Middle."
He also played Boris Kodjoe's son in the movie
"Doing Hard Time" and was featured in a national com-
mercial for Mercedes Benz.
In 2005. Justin and his mother returned to LA for
pilot season. In addition to getting a part in TV shows
"Judging Amy" and Nickelodeon's "Drake & Josh." and
a Bounty Paper Towel commercial, he caught the eye of
Disney talent scouts who invited Justin to audition for
the role of Young Simba.
Justin had seen the show in LA and several months
before his audition, his mother had taken him backstage
at the New Amsterdam
Theatre \\here "The Lion King" is currently playing
in New\ York City. "Justin stood on the stage and
announced to the empty theater. 'I'm going to be
Simba."" Mrs. Martin recalled.
In the end. Justin's confidence and talent convinced
casting agents for "The Lion King" to offer Justin the
coveted Broad\\ay role.

King Award Recipient Helped
To Keep Dr. King's Dream Alive
The Honorable Joseph W. Hatchett
2006 Martin Luther King. Jr.
Humanitarian Award Honoree
A diverse audience of Jacksonville residents attended the
Martin Luther King, Jr., Humanitarian Award and Concert

The celebration, featuring the renown Ritz Chamber
Players, was held in remembrance of the late Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr.
The Honorable Joseph W. Hatchett, a National Bar
Association Hall of Fame inductee, received the Martin
Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian award.
Hatchett, Florida's 65th Justice, was born in Clearwater,
Florida in 1932. Though Justice Hatchett's family was poor -
- his mother a maid, and his father a fruit picker-- he still
leaped the hurdles raised by racial segregation and fulfilled
his dream of becoming a lawyer.
This was no small task. The year was 1956 and Florida
still lived under the rule of Jim Crow.
As a black man, Hatchett was not eligible to enter
Florida's white law schools, so he instead won admission to
prestigious Howard University law school in Washington
When Hatchett graduated from Howard in 1959, he still
faced one final challenge-- the Florida Bar Exam..That year
the two-and-a-half-day exam was to be given at the Dupont
Plaza Hotel in Miami, which refused accommodations for
Hatchett had to stay in a black hotel quite some distance
away. Despite these hurdles, he was appointed an Assistant
United States Attorney in Jacksonville.
From 1971 until 1975, he served as a U.S. Magistrate for
the Middle District of Florida. In 1975. he was appointed by
Governor Reubin Askew to fill a vacancy on the Florida
Supreme Court-- the first black ever to serve there.
In 1976, .Hatchett achieved yet another first: Despite
racially-charged opposition, he became the first African-
American elected to statewide office in Florida and the
South %\hen voters returned him to the Court. Then in 1979,
Hatchett became the first black man appointed to the federal
appeals court for the Deep South.

The holidays are over and I no longer have a need for my
boyfriend. We dated during the summer but as the New Year
rolled in I realized I don't want to be with him. The problem
is the fact he gave me some expensive gifts that I don't feel I
should return. He's selfish and I know he'll want the gifts
back if I dump him. How can I end this relationship but keep
Tee (Oklahoma City, OK)
You're very rude and don't have the right to discard this man like a dust cloth. You
were with this man long enough to build respect even if the relationship needs to end. You
need to close the relationship with decency and give him the courtesy of knowing why. If
he wants the gifts back, you should return them to avoid conflict. Besides, there's nothing
too expensive that you can't work hard and buy for yourself.
I'm in a serious relationship with a prisoner. I visit him weekly and now he wants to
get married. I love him and want to be with him but I'm scared. I've never been married
and would prefer to wait for him when he gets out in 7 years. He thinks we should marry
now for benefits and income tax purposes but I don't see it that way. I don't want to lose
him but I don't want to marry him now just to keep him. What do I do?
Anonymous (Riverside, CA)
You need your head examined if you don't get it. He placed his desires for financial
gain on the table in plain view. It would be more acceptable if he professed faith, love and
devotion but he didn't. You need to wake up and see how crazy it is to worry about losing
someone who can't do anything for you but talk and write letters. If the love is so strong,
he'll wait for 7 years because he's not going anywhere no time soon.
I love going to church but I'm losing my faith. Everything in my life is going wrong at
the same time. I lost my job, my girlfriend and my desire to enjoy life. I was drinking
heavy for a while and my friends left me. Now that I'm down on my luck everyone has
disappeared. How do I get myself together during a time like this because I'm really com-
ing apart. Where.do I start?
Neal (Memphis, TN)
When the enemy attacks he seeks to kill and destroy. During periods of distress, lack
of hope and the good times, you need to pray and lean on your faith like there's no tomor-
row. This is a time of life revelation and cleansing so you can trust in God as He prepares
you for a new season of blessings. At least you know who your friends are so that when
you're back on your feet you can leave them in the cold.

Celebrating Dr. King Through Serving
"If you want to be important-wonderful. If you want
to be recognized-wonderful: If you want to be great-
wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among
you shall be your servant. That's a new definition of
greatness. And this morning, the thing that I like about it:
by giving that definition of greatness, it means that
everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.
You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You
don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to
serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don't have to
know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second the-
ory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a
soul generated by love."
These well-known words are from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s sermon "The
Drum Major Instinct," delivered at Ebenezer Baptist Church on February 4, 1968.
In his sermon, Dr. King was explaining that we all start out with the ingrained
instinct to be "drum majors:" everyone wants to be important, to be first, to lead the
parade. Watch a group of children try to form a line, and right away you'll see this
instinct in action. But too many people never outgrow this instinct, Dr. King said,
and by constantly struggling to be the best and most important or wealthiest or best-
educated we forget one of the Gospels' and life's largest truths: the real path to great-
ness is through service.
It's a key lesson to remember, and it's also a key piece of what we should be
teaching our children about Dr. King. Many of them have just studied Dr. King's life
in school in the days leading up to Dr. King's birthday, and many young people have
learned to see Dr. King as a history book hero-a larger-than-life, mythical figure.
But it's crucial for them to understand Dr. King wasn't a superhuman with magical
powers. They need to be reminded he was a real person, just like all of the other min-
isters, parents, and neighbors in the community, and like the all of the familiar adults
in their lives today.
I first heard Dr. King speak in person at a Spelman College chapel service dur-
ing my senior year in college. Dr. King was just 31 but he had already gained a
national reputation during the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott five years earli-
er. He became a mentor and friend. Although I do remember him as.a great leader
and a hero, I also remember him as someone able to admit how often he was afraid
and unsure about his next step. But faith prevailed over fear, uncertainty, fatigue,
and sometimes depression. It was his human vulnerability and ability to rise above
it that I most remember. He was an ordinary man who made history because he was
willing to stand up and serve and make a difference in extraordinary ways as did the
legion of other civil rights s/heroes in the 1950s and 1960s. We need to teach our
children every day that they can and must make a difference, too. "Everybody can
be great, because everybody can serve."
Towards the end of his sermon on "The Drum Major Instinct," Dr. King told the
congregation that like many people, he sometimes thought about his own death and
funeral. He said when the day came; he didn't want people to talk about his Nobel
Prize or his degrees or hundreds of awards.-The first thing he:\\ anted someone to
say about him was "that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to give his life serving oth-
ers." Dr. King didn't know just how soon that day would come. He was assassinat-
ed two months to the day after giving that sermon. But a recording of "The Drum
Major Instinct" was played at his funeral, and many people think of the moving
words in Dr. King's voice as his own eulogy. He knew how he \%%anted to be remem-
bered. "If I Can Help Somebody Along the Way" was his favorite song.
That is why Americans are now urged to celebrate the holiday honoring Dr. King
as "a day on, not a day off," and to use his birthday to come together for conmmuni-
ty service and action. But we shouldn't wait for the holiday to come back around to
remember and honor him this way. We can honor Dr. King's legacy best bjr serving
every day and standing together to build a movement to realize Dr. King's dream -
America's dream." : :, :

hope that he's given his
props." Michael Wilson
Pickett, the singer's son, told
WRC-TV in Washington
after his death.
Pickett -- known as the
"Wicked Pickett"-- became
a star with his soulful hits in
the 1960s. "In the Midnight

the Billboard pop charts in

Pickett was defined by
his raspy voice and passion-
ate delivery. But the

greatest success. In 1965. he
linked with legendary soul
producer Jerry Wexler at the
equally legendary soul label

and recorded one of his
greatest hits, "In the
Midnight Hour," for Atlantic
Records. A string of hits fol-
lowed, including "634-

and "Mustang Sally." His
sensuous soul was in sharp
contrast to the genteel soul
songs of his Detroit counter-.
parts at Motown Records.
Roger Friedman, a jour-

documentary on soul greats,
"Only the Strong Survive,"

it was over, it was reported
to authorities and the minis-
ter was arrested.
Rev Alexie KellyAt his hearing, he was
sentenced to six months jail time and three years probation.
His probation required him to avoid contact with the girl.
The girl's mother and members of the church felt their
pastor would be able to handle his probation and pleaded
with the court to allow him to come back to lead them.
After the relationship was disclosed, several churches
invited Rev. Kelly and his wife to speak at their programs or
services and according to his members, he continued his
work to help build the church and their congregation
It was learned that the pastor had not totally avoided the
teenager during a counseling session in addition to not main-
taining the court's curfews. Kelly was therefore arrested.

do something self-nurturing
The idea of being social isn't
very appealing on Thursday,
and Friday and Saturday are/
stay-at-home days as :well. In
dealing with others on Sunday,
be as flexible as possible.
Leo (July 23 August
22) To figure put, what's
going on in the garden, some-
times you have to
uproot everything ...- *
and take a look at I
the soil. Monday I
.and Tuesday, the
situation below the surface is '
finally getting some of your
attention. Sound boring?,
Perhaps. But Wednesday and
Thursday are the exact opposite
of.boring -- the are fiery, fun,
with-the-top-down sort. of days,
wonderful days, and Sunday
finds you babbling excitedly
about the future.
Aquarius (January 20
- February 18) The thoughts
you have about your career at
the start of the week
are good thoughts w
to be having,
healthy thoughts to
curiosity, and intel-
lectual curiosity --
*' obviously -- is what
has led to the
advances that the modem
world is built on in terms of sci-
ence, philosophy and the arts.
You're a genius! Sadly, some
forces (probably in the family
realm) are going to prevent you
from making good on your
genius .Wednesday and
Thursday, but Friday and
Saturday are open to your cre-
ative whims. And Sunday, an
experimental mood guides your
day, so be open to anything.
Libra (September 23 -
Money makes the
world go 'round,
they say, and it's
certainly all you
can think about on Monday and
Tuesday. Not that you're think-
ing like a greedy person, you're
just thinking. What are things
worth? What do you want to do
with your money? These ques-
tions deserve as much consid-
eration as you're willing to
invest in them -- maybe a con-
versation along these lines
would interest a friend on
Wednesday or Thursday.
Friday and Saturday find you a
bit down about something in
your past, but a jolt of romance
on Sunday brings you very
much back to the present.
Scorpio (October 24 -
November 21) Rebirth and
key themes at the
beginning of the
week. The old
leaves are. being
replaced by new ones (at least
metaphorically, since it's still
the middle of winter). You feel
more connected to your friends
and they feel more connected
to you, as will be obvious on
Wednesday and, well, every
day after that this week. You
find yourself doing things you
wouldn't normally do on your
own on Thursday. On Friday
and Saturday everyone you
know is simply in a great mood
-- these are rare,, wonderful
times. Problems at home or
with your family might arise
Sunday, be open-minded.
22 -December 21) It's okay
to be moody on
Tuesday. Try not to .
be moody: around
other people. if you
can help it, but don't beat your-
self up for your feelings. And.
besides. by Wdnesday, every-
thing will go. on the;upswing
and stay that way. Thursday
will be':a jovial da\. 'too.-
Bringing your lunch to work on
Friday is a smart idea -- as the
:week winds to a close, strate-
gies for financial shrewdness
figure into your thoughts -- and
Saturday, even though you
want to go shopping, rot doing
so is: a much. better plan.
Communication and create\ ity
22 January 19'You have a
decision to make on Monday or
STuesday, and you
'I ; have tons of friends
,' % who can ihelp'you
make it. Rely on
them more than you usually
might (after all, you've sur-
round yourself with smart peo-
ple; they know of what they
speak). Certain things might
not seem possible on
Wednesday or Thursday, but
they are possible -- so long as
you persevere and don't opt. out
(emotionally) too early on. On
the other hand, keep your emo-
tions in check and as separate,
as possible from tasks at hand.
Friday and Saturday are truly
Do they have your best inter-
ests at heart? No sense getting
paranoid, but pay attention this
week -- especially on
Wednesday and Thursday.
Friday has you so surrounded
by friends that there's very little
chance anyone would be able
to sneak up on you, and
Saturday (an easy day) and
Sunday (an intellectually stim-
ulating day) offer a lot. in the
way of pleasure.

DUI Driver Turned Himself
In For Manslaughter Charges
On January 12. 2006, Charles Edward Patterson went
to the Bay Street Police Department and turned himself
in:for an accident he was involved in on December 4,
Patterson was driving a 1995 Chevrolet Subuiban on
Firestone Road and attempted to make a left turn onto
Wheat Road when he -impacted a Ford Taurus where
Nora Katherine Gilbert, who was eight months pregnant
was a passenger. ,
Mhs. Gilbert was the front seat passenger'of the Ford.
Even though an eight month fetus is viable, it too died as
a result of the injuries received in the crash. Patterson
had been drinking and the cause of the accident was con-
tributed to him because he failed to give the right of way
to the driver of the Ford.

be having. You are an ambi-
tious, goal-oriented person,
and while this sometimes pro-
duces stress in your life, in the
long run you will have some-
thing to show for it. Try to.
relieve some of this stress on
Wednesday or Thursday with a
social activity, or better yet
several social activities. Friday
and Saturday will return you to
the business of keeping your
head down and getting things
done. But Sunday? You haven't
felt more brilliant (or, more
attractive) in a while.

Governor Ed Rendell
signed an execution war-
rant last week clearing
the way for the execution
of Philly rapper

Roney on March 9.
Roney was convicted of
first-degree murder in
the shooting death of
police officer Lauretha
Vaird, the first female
police officer of the
department to die in the
line of duty. Rony was
part of a botched bank
robbery that included fel-
low rapper Warren
"Steady B" McGlone and
a third, accomplice. Rony
was a member of the
Hilltop Hustlers who help
put Philly rappers on the
map with their 80's hit
Robinson Peete and hus-
band Rodney Peete, for-
mer NFL quarterback and
current host of the "Best

Tristan & Isolde (20th
Century Fox Pictures)
stars James Franco,
Sophia Myles, Rufus
Sewell and David Patrick
O'Hara. The fable of
Tristan and Isolde is. a
myth from the dark ages
of England which took
place after the fall of the
Roman Empire around the
fifth century AD. Little is
known about that time
period because no records
were kept. In reality, after
the Romans left, the
English tribes and all of
greater Europe slipped
backwards into total bar-
The Romans brought
to the area culture and civ-
ilization that they them-
selves had been taught by
the wise black African
Coptic Priests -from
Kemet (later known' as
Egypt, a name given to it
by the invading Greeks).
Between 500 and 700 AD
i.e., during the dark ages,
It wasn't until the black
Moors invaded Europe
around 705 AD that civi-
lization was restored to
Of course Hollyweird
won't give you those
facts! If you need, check
out the Moors at your
local Afro-centric book-
store and read the facts for
yourself. Now back to our
film. James Franco was a
very likeable Tristan. The
ladies (those into his type)
will swoon over him. He
masterfully displayed a
perfect mix of bravery,
warrior skills, charm, sen-
sitivity, and sexiness
throughout the entire film.
I see superstar sex symbol
written all over him!
Sophia Myles equally

She spun the audience
