Making Friends With Black People
Comedian, Author Nick Adams was in Jacksonville
Thursday, autographing his book at Books-A-Millions.
But Wednesday night he stopped by Florida Star to
record for IMPACT radio show at WCGL-AM 1360. The
32-year-old, even though a comic, is giving his best to
get people of different races to seriously try to become
friends. His formula is to not try to be like the other guy,
just be you. Adams said that black men and women
have lived through four hundred years of slavery,
oppression, murder, and watching white college stu-
dents try to dance. His desire is to help readers avoid
,potential racial pitfalls and successfully make the tran-
sition from white to "aiight" in his first book. The book
is funny, its astute" said Booklist. Buy it!

Stories from Katrina's Children
Marian Wright Edelman
President and Founder of the Children's Defense Fund
RON WILLIAMS, SR.
BETTY ASQUE DAVIS
As a dusty haze settles
over her trailer, Judy sits alone
on the wooden steps outside
her door. She's taking a break
while her 11-month-old
granddaughter, Myan, sleeps.
The child has been sick with a
respiratory ailment made
worse by the dust that comes
through the trailer's vents. It's
hard for Myan to sleep as
noisy children with few places
to play run between trailer
rows. Judy has no car and she
has had to struggle to get
Myan to be seen by a pediatri-
cian and to receive her immu-
nization shots for chickenpox
There are few health care
resources available to Myan
or the more than 600 other
children in the "Renaissance"
Village trailer park outside
Baton Rouge, La., which was
created by FEMA to house
families left homeless by
Hurricane Katrina. A number
of children suffer from asthma
and upper respiratory ailments
aggravated by dust that
sweeps down the gravel-
topped roads. Mobile clinics
staffed by family nurse practi-
tioners' visit the park only
three days a week. There is
not a single doctor on site to
serve the nearly 1,700 resi-
dents of the trailer park. Judy
has to divide her time between
caring for Myan and looking
after her diabetic 84-year-old
mother, as well as her 14-
year-old daughter, Kassmere.
CLARA FRANCES McLAUGHLIN
They all share the same
FEMA trailer. Judy's four
older children are a few trail-
Judy's family has been
through a lot. When Katrina
hit, they lived in the rural part
of Plaquemines Parish, a nar-
row peninsula that extends
into the Gulf of Mexico. Their
home was washed away, and
they had to move from shelter
to shelter four times before
they arrived at Renaissance
Village. Now Myan, who just
started walking, has little
room to grow. There's no
playground or Tot Lot and you
can't push a stroller on gravel.
,"Back home, the children had
parks to go to. I knew they
were safe among our neigh-
bors. We didn't lock our
doors," said Judy. "There are
drug dealers and bad influ-
ences here. I just want to get
Myan and my children away."
Miles away, in Houston,
you have to steal glances at
Raynell's large, luminous,
brown eyes. He won't look at
you, preferring to fix his gaze
on something in the yonder,
and his brow is so furrowed
you have to wonder what in
the world has a 4-year-old boy
"I love J.B.," he abruptly
announces. The last time
Raynell had seen J.B. Jones,
his maternal grandfather, was
in September in'the New
Orleans Superdome where
both had sought refuge from

Hurricane Katrina and the tor-
rential flooding that ensued.
With his motherland older
brother and sister, Raynell
spent several harrowing days
and nights in the Superdome,
saved from Katrina only to
face hunger, heat, poor sanita-
tion, darkness and danger
inside the facility. "They
turned the lights off and it was
dark," recalls Emyne,
Raynell's 9-year-old sister.
"They were shooting people.
It was scary in there."
Meanwhile, J.B. was
being cared for by his ex-wife
in a special section of the
Superdome reserved for the
disabled. Eventually, he was
transferred to Tulane
University Hospital while
Raynell and his family were
bused to a shelter in Dallas
and later to Houston. The
family lost track of J.B.
Months of desperate searches
on the Internet, by telephone
and by word of mouth finally
paid off in early February
when, at last, the family
learned that J.B. had settled in
a Louisiana rehabilitation cen-
ter an hour away. Raynell
rejoiced at the good news. But
on the same day the boy
learned his grandfather's
whereabouts, J.B., only 51,
died. "I wish I was back
home," says Raynell, sullenly.
Raynell and Myan are just
two of Katrina's youngest vic-
tims, babies and preschoolers
with no way to understand
why familiar routines or
beloved adults were suddenly
snatched away. How can we
help them-and the adults
who are struggling mightily to
rise above their own troubles
in order to care for them? The
Children's Defense Fund's
recent report on Katrina's
children calls for an immedi-
ate emergency child mental
health corps and more mobile
vans and school-based health
clinics to meet the mental
health needs of children like
Myan and Raynell. These
families need health and men-
tal health services now. And
children need quality early
Immediate steps to serve,
all children who need Early
Head Start (less than 3 percent
of eligible infants and toddlers
are currently served nation-
wide) and Head Start (only 50
percent of eligible preschool
children are served) and
incentives to encourage Head
Start collaboration with high
quality child care and pre-
school providers would also
meet some of the immediate
and longer term needs. of
Katrina's children and fami-
lies. Coupled with other par-
ent education and parent sup-
ports from community, faith
and private and public sector
networks, and jobs and hous-
ing. the fabric of family and
community can be rewoven
for the thousands of children
like Myan and Raynell who
need adults with the capacity
to meet their needs. CDF is

Dream Investments, Inc. welcomed renowned moti-
vational speaker, best seller author Les Brown. The
event was a celebration of the investment group's 4th
Anniversary. Under the leadership of president/CEO
Jeremiah Jackson, Jr. and vice president Bryan
Holmes Paradise Dream Investment Club focuses on
Real Estate investment and began with training classes
for its members. With a mission to provide investment
skills that combine solid Real Estate training with
proven Biblical principles, bringing hope to those who
want to break the bonds of debt, ending job dependen-
cy and developing a mindset of entrepreneurship, the
membership has grown since its beginnings and train-
ing classes in Real Estate investments are held weekly.
The club is anticipating the ownership of its own facil-
ity to hold training classes and to sponsor other events.
Les Brown was at his best mesmerizing the audience
that included Congresswoman Corrine Brown
throughout his speech. He ,gave us the Five P's for
1. Personal empowerment (Take care of your health,
have 'just in case' money)
2. Power of association (Be with quality people)
3. Process (Have a plan to creating worth)
4. Personal Coaching (Have a life coach)
5. Passion to Serve (What turns you on).
There were door prizes galore including money and
Les Brown tapes and CD's. It was a delightful evening
and Mr. Brown plans to return to the First Coast for

This year's Annual Bausch & Lomb Tennis
Tournament at Amelia Island was truly for committed
tennis 'buffs' as the headliners were unknown to many
and of course neither of the Williams sisters were there
and that was disappointing. But for those of us who
enjoy the game no matter who is playing it was a great
week of relaxation, enjoying the game and the great

Trustees Rally In Support Of
School Of Nursing Building
DAYTONA BEACH, FLA The Bethune-Cookman
College Board of Trustees united in support of securing a
new home for the College's School of Nursing during their
sessions last week. President Trudie Kib`e Reed and Board
Treasurer, Mrs. Margaret J. McPhillips, pLiced challenges to
trustees to help raise needed funds when they each pledged
The momentum of this commitment grew when other
trustees added to this amount by a total of $-136,000 to
ensure that the College can meet the closing on the purchase
of a property along International Speedway Boulevard to
house the program.
Considered one of the Bethune-Cookman College
Signature Programs, the School of Nursing has been clois-
tered in a small two-story building adjacent to the Mary
McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center for years.
Dean of the School of Nursing, Alma Yearwood Dixon
said "Currently, the College must turn down qualified nurs-

tory space and quality placements for clinical learning expe-
There are o\er 200 students in the pipeline, so we sim-

According to the 2004 Accountability Report: Quality,
Productivity, Diversity, and Access, Bethune-Cookman
College enrolls the largest percentage (88%) of racial/ethni-
cal minority nursing students and produces 82% of the bach-
elor degrees awarded to racial and ethnic minority nurse
graduates of the twenty-eight Independent Colleges and
Universities of Florida (ICUF).
The School of Nursing building project is slated at a lit-
tle over $10;000,000 and includes the purchase of a three-
building, four-acre proper, the retrofitting of the property
with classrooms labs, faculty offices, a College Infirmary
and the development of a Nurse Managed Community Clinic
that employs an- integrated approach to community health
and focuses on implementing community-driven strategies.

support of our Trustees. These visionary leaders have done

Closing Arguments In South African's Trial

Johannesburg High Court in closing arguments that the 31-
S year-old HIV-positive woman would never have agreed to
sex with Zuma because she regarded him as a father figure;
wasn't interested in him sexually because she is a lesbian;
and that she would have insisted on a condom, which was

Since February. parents around the city have been calling and writing letters to
their legislators and 100 have contributed to a radio ad campaign running on WZAZ-
AM, WSOL-FM and WCGL-AM that asks Tony Hill to support the bill. Also sup-
porting the ad campaign is the Florida Committee for Educational Freedom, a non-
profit group that supports school choice for low-income parents.
Two of the scholarship programs at risk, McKay Scholarships for Students with
Disabilities and Corporate Tax Credit Scholarships for low-income students, serve
over 2,600 children in Hill's district. One parent featured in an ad, Arlene Bethel,
talks about how a Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship helped her children. "The schol-
arship literally saved their lives. They now make good grades, contribute to their
community and plan for the future."
There are 52 schools in Hill's district that serve children on these two programs
alone. One of them, The Potter's House Christian Academy, serves almost 300 chil-
dren on the progranis-\vhich is why Bishop Vaughn McLauhglin, senior pastor of
The Potter's House, agreed to appear in an ad. "These programs are essential for bol-

In January, the Florida Supreme Court declared Opportunity Scholarships uncon-
stitutional. Opportunity Scholarships were available to children who were assigned
to public schools that.earned two "F" grades in any four-year period.
'The scholarships allowed parents of these children to receive state funds to pay
tuition at the private school of the parent's choice. Over 90% of the children on this
program were minorities. The court ruled that the scholarships violated the state's
obligation to create a uniform public school system, and ordered the children back
tb public schools.
The Supreme Court ruling, and previous ruling by an Appeals Court regarding
the use of funds at faith based schools, threatens several other state funded scholar-
ship programs, including the McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities and
the Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship Program for low income children. Twenty
eight percent of the McKa1 scholarship recipients are African American, as are 42%
of the recipients of Corporate Tax Credit scholarships.
The appeals court: ruling also threatens other popular education programs.
Currently, parents using the new state funded pre-k program may use the grants at
faith-based institutions. College students may use Bright Futures scholarships and
Florida Resident Access Grants at faith based colleges such as Bethune-Cookman
College, Edward Waters College and Florida Memorial College.
The legislature will likely vote on the proposed amendment during the final'week

According to records, Thompson turned himself in about six hours later. He was
then charged with aggravated assault as well as kidnapping. Butler was unharmed.
After Thompson was arrested, Robinson's ex-boyfriend, Bryant Payne was arrest-

kidnapped Butler for information because he had seen Robinson arrive at Payne's
house that morning around 8:00 a.m. Thompson.said that Robinson's body was
placed in Payne's car trunk.
With this information, the officers began to question Butler who acknowledged
that she was told that Robinson had been strangled and that her body had been
placed in the trunk of Payne's car. In addition, she advised the officers that
Robinson's body had already been buried and that her car was hidden near U. S. 301

Snoop Dogg Out on Bail
After Airport Fracas
Rapper Snoop Dogg and five associates were arrested after a fracas at Heathrow Airport that injured seven police officers, British media report-
ed Thursday April 27, 2006. Snoop was released on bail Thursday after a fracas at London's Heathrow Airport that injured seven police officers,
his lawyers said. The rap star was driven away from the airport station, police said, while speaking on condition of anonymity in line with depart-
ment policy. They did not give details of five other men arrested with him.
"Snoop has been released on bail," said his attorney, Peter Binning. "He will return at a later date." Binning said the rap star was released with-
out charge and would leave the country to honor concert commitments in South Africa. He said he has not be charged with any offense. He declined
to reveal the amount of money posted for his bail. Police did not immediately comment on details of the release of the rapper.
Trouble began late Wednesday when members of the star's entourage were denied entry into British Airways' first class lounge. A disturbance
involving 30 people followed, London's Metropolitan Police said. When police told the group that they would not be allowed to board their flight,
"a number of the group became abusive and pushed officers," a police spokeswoman said on the force's customary condition of anonymity.
The six men were arrested on charges of "violent disorder and affray" -- or creating a brawl or disturbance -- and spent the night at London
police stations. Police said all those arrested were U.S. citizens in their 30s. Seven officers received cuts, bruises and other minor injuries, the force
said. The rapper and his party were denied entry into the lounge because some of the entourage was flying first class, while other members of the
party were flying economy class, said Richard Goodfellow, a spokesman for British Airways, which runs the lounge.
"They became very rude and abusive to our staff and we took the decision to offload the party and refuse them travel," Goodfellow said. "That
sort of behavior will not be tolerated." British Airways said they have sent letters to the rapper and his party telling them that they are banned from
all future travel on the airline, the spokesman added.
Snoop Dogg -- real name Calvin Broadus, 34 -- had been due to perform in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Thursday. The concert he was set
to give Thursday will be rescheduled but others set for the weekend will go on as planned, Binning said.

Adrienne's Dance & Baton Company
Celebrated their 15th annual recital Sunday, April
23 at the Times Unions Performing Arts Center. It
was a cool clear evening when out of nowhere 4
white, stretch Hummer limousines pulled up to the
Times Union Center. The crowd was excited the
moment they were waiting for was finally here.
The red carpet, the balloons, the cameras, the
crowd and Mrs. Dawn Lopez who served as the
announcer and mistress of ceremony for the
evening, set the stage for what would go down as
one of the most revered recitals in dance history.
As the students and staff of ADBC got out the lim-
ousines and made their way down the runway their
fans cheered and held up banners as their stars
names were called. It was truly an amazing event.
This years' recital theme was "The Stars
Return." The opening number featured former stu-
dents of ADBC who had returned to salute their
mentor and friend Mrs. Adrienne Martin Ravnell,
affectionately known as Ms. Adrienne. Mrs.
Ravenell is the Artistic Director and owner of
Adrienne's Dance & Baton Company,

"Having received one of the most valuable gifts a girl can receive (dance lessons) and coming from a family of majorettes," says Mrs.
Ravnell she had no choice but to choose this path. She has 90 students ranging from ages 3-adult. Her adult classes consist of ladies
ages 25-55. Adrienne states that her goal is to teach and enhance the skills the girls possess in a positive way, which will help build char-
acter, self-esteem, self respect, respect for others and above all to instill in them that with prayer and God all things are possible.
When asked what advice or words of encouragement she could give someone who is interested in starting their own business she
states, "Always pray and keep God first, treat your customers the way you want to be treated, don't' mix friendship with business and
know that coming together is the beginning, making it work is progress and keeping it together is success. If you are interested in addi-
tional information about the studio and the classes that are offered please call (904)766-3339.

Dear Deanna! ".
My pastor, who happens to be my husband's best friend, has ';.
wrecked our church. He divorced his wife and a year later,.
married his wife's first cousin. Half the church doesn't care
and others are trying to fire him. It wouldn't be so bad but "
the pastor has children who now have to deal with their aunt ,
becoming their stepmother. I don't support this but I'm
forced to choose sides because of my husband's friendship
with him. What do I do?- *"
Praying For Peace (Paoli, PA)
Jessie Jackson went half on a baby but he claimed to be a preacher nan not a saint. If
the pastor was legally divorced then he's privy to marry a cousin, a chair or a cardboard
box. Yes it looks strange and there may be more to the story such as why he got divorced
and did the cousin play a part, As a Christian wife, you're committed to support your
husband and avoid getting caught up, in drama with the hell raising members of the
church. If your pastor is not fornicating and can still deliver the Word, then get over it
and keep it moving.
I'm a confessed womanizer with many dates and don't plan to change. I feel I should
be given a pat on the back for being honest about who I really am. Instead, people call
me a dog, they call me a player and women are upset when things don't go their way.
Why do the honest guys have a hard time when the liars are on easy street?
Dwayne P. (Memphis, TN)
You're a fool with commitment issues and slim respect for women. Your behavior is not
responsible and is nothing to brag about. When it comes to love, life and relationships,
there is no honesty among cheaters, no points for players and no high fives for infideli-
ty. A liar is only on easy street until-they are revealed and then all heck breaks lose-and
they truly deserve it. Do yourself a favor and get a new game because this one is weak.
I'm afraid my little sister is going to slip and make a bad decision on graduation night.
Our family has done a great job teaching her that true love waits. Her boyfriend has
pressured her all year long and we think she's getting weak and may give in. What can
I do to prevent her from losing her virginity without disrespecting her as.an adult?
Big Sister:(On-rline Reader)
Dear Wits End:
She's made it this far without breaking down and you should trust her to be an adult and:
hold on to the foundation. You can only share wisdom at this point. Step up the pace and
have dialogue with her about the risks as well as the faith-based teachings pf sex and
marriage. If you want her home and not in a hotel on graduation night, the family should
have a special celebration with her friends and loved ones and hope for the best.

"Give Me A Break!" Seven Types of Marriage Separations and How
to Choose the One that's Right for You
(FeatureSource) When the feelings of appreciation and love languish, or
your mate-in-mid-life crisis starts buying tiny sports cars and spends more
time with friends or at the office than with you, divorce may seem like the only
option. It's not.
Managed separation offers a viable alternative to divorce and increases the
chances of keeping your marriage and family intact. But choosing the right
type of separation is critical.
"Deciding upon the type of separation you will be working on helps to
define and clarify expectations and responsibilities," says Robert J.
Buchicchio, author of "Taking Space: How to Use Separation to Explore the
Future of Your Relationship" (CharLer Publishing, www.TakingSpace.com).
One of the first counselors in the United States to develop a 10 step prob-
lem solving guide to help couples manage periods of both short and long-term
separation, Buchicchio has spent over thirty five years in relationship, mar-
riage, and divorce counseling, and has helped hundreds of couples sort
According to Buchicchio, separation falls into two basic categories:
Physical and Psychological.
Physical separation usually involves some kind of moving apart and can
take on many different forms including:
In-House: Partners remain in the same house with more space.
Brief separations: Partners remain in the same house but plan to spend
Trial: One partner moves out for a specific period of time.
Predivorce: At least one partner physically separates with the intention of
ending the relationship.
Psychological separation allows you to gain some mental distance and caft
Individual psychological separation: One person focuses on growth and
development of self.
S- Therapeutic (relationship) separation: Both partners focus oi self-growth
and changing damaging patterns in relationship.
In selecting what type of separation is right for you, you may find that you
start with one type and then decide to move into another. There is nothing
wrong with this.
The way you choose to separate will'be unique to your situation. Be cre-
ative. See what works best and make the most of this valuable opportunity to
look atyour self and learn from the time apart.

from a Spouse Effectively" at www.TakingSpace.com.

Jaguars May Take Linebacker With First Pick In Draft
Last season, the
Jacksonville Jaguars won
eight of their last nine
games, taking advantage of
a relatively weak schedule,
and returned to the playoffs
for the first time since 1999.
They finished the season at
QB Byron Leftwich and
RB Fred Taylor each missed
five games with injuries, but
they returned for the first
round of the playoffs, a 28-3
loss at New England.
.Jacksonville hopes to
improves its outlook for the
2006 with a successful draft
on Saturday, April 29.
THEY NEED: LB, TE,

Ayodele to Dallas, making
the position a priority
despite ongoing talks with
high-priced free agent-LaVar
They paid TE Kyle
Brady a $400,000 roster

34-year-old player is in the
final year of his contract.
They addressed concerns
at offensive tackle by sign-
ing Mike Williams and
Stockar McDougle, former
first-round picks who failed
to meet expectations, but
could still use line help.
THEY DON'T NEED:
WR, QB, DL. After drafting
receivers in the first round

Williams in 2004, Matt
Jones in 2005), it's a safe bet

Although Leftwich has
been injury prone, David
Garrard has proven to be a
capable backup. The team
has its most talent along the
defensive line with Marcus

A large hole at outside
linebacker makes it easy to
imagine what direction the
Jaguars will go in this draft.

Your Weekly Horoscpe
(APRIL 29, 2006-MAY 5, 2006)
Aries (March 21 -
April 19) Now it is the
time when you
should be careful
not to get caught
up in too much
detail so that you
neglect to be mindful of any
general overall plans that
you project towards the
future. That detail may lead
you down a path that you
had not anticipated and that
could end up taking you
quite far from your original
intentions. On the other
hand focusing on individual
component pieces that fit
into an integrated whole
may allow you to gain sub-
stantial ground now in
respect to goals. This week
lucky numbers are: 5, 7, 13,
Taurus (April 20 -
will be pressing at this time
and will likely not
allow you as
much freedom as
you would like to
have during this week. This
may not be the best time for
social. engagements it's
more likely that your invest-
ments of time would bear
better fruit if they were put
into physical and business
work and circumstances
will likely support that. This
week lucky numbers are:10,
16, 18, 40, 46.
Gemini (May 21 -
June 21) At this time you
may find yourself
struggling in spir-
it and attitude to
measure up to the
challenges that lie
before you. The virtues,
endurance and courage may
be immediate allies in your
present development. At this
time, it may feel a little like
climbing up a mountain but
try to see the harvest gained
later in respect to the con-
strictive seeds that you sow'
now. This week lucky num-
bers are: 9, 11,.21, 27, 33.
Cancer June 21- July
22) In the romantic context
of your life you
may find yourself
forward or even
aggressive individuals who's:
agenda is more likely to be
self-sering 'than not. It is.
not advisable to try to
engage in "amorous" behav-
ior with anyone new to your
life now as you are likely to
experience a lack of grace
and harmony which would
otherwise be necessary for
things to go well in that area
of your life. This week lucky
numbers are: 10, 16, 22, 32,
Leo (July 23 August
22)At this time
you should be
very careful about
what you decide
to spend your
money on as the indications
are that yotl could, if you are
not careful about the value
or worth'of a significant pur-
chase, experience real disap-
pointment and loss this
does not have to be the case
but in order to minimize the
possibilities of financial loss
or disappointment in respect
to values, be careful. This
week lucky numbers are:3,
7, 15, 25, 27.
Virgo (August 23 -
September 22) The plane-
tary tendency shows that
you will be feeling rather
compulsive at this time and
may tend to "jump the gun"
regarding reactions and
decisions. You are likely to
really "feel" the courage of
your convictions now and to
even blunt in
respect to assert-
ing those convictions and/or
feelings. It might be a good
time to remind yourself that
life is a two-way street and
that often relating to and
being with others involves a
need for balance and com-
promise.This week lucky
numbers are: 2, 36, 38, 42,

Keep in mind that changing
circumstances and situations
may call for personal adjust-
ments. Communication may
increase now with family
members and there may be
needed changes and the
logistics associated with that
as well as discussions
around security needs. This
may prove to be a good peri-
od for getting extra sleep or
catching up on anysleep that
you've missed and that will
likely be deeper than usual.
This week lucky numbers
are: 11, 25, 35, 55, 59.

Degree of confu-

unconscious desires. You
may even feel a bit-drained
due to being pulled down by
unconscious drives or quests
that are taxing your con-
scious mind against it's own
will. Activities that you
engage in now may take on
an element of secretiveness
,and may even operate in a
mode. of seclusion. There
may be a need to disguise
identities in a manner that
maintains your privacy.This
week .lucky numbers are:-12,
16, 34, 36, 42.
