Teen Deaths By Guns In Year
Exceeds U.S. Deaths During Present War In Iraq
The latest data from the U. S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention show that 2,827 children and
teens died from gunfire in the United States in 2003
one child or teen about every three hours, nearly eight
every day, 54 children and teens every week.
Of the number of deaths, 1,822 were homicide vic-
tims, 810 committed suicide, 195 died in accidental or
undetermined circumstances, 2,505 were boys, 325'
were girls and 1,172 were black.
According to the report, four to five times as many
children and teens suffered non-fatal bullet wounds in
addition to those who died.
In 2003, 56 preschoolers were killed by firearms. In
the same year, 52 law enforcement officers were killed
in the line of duty. More 10- to 19-year-olds die from
gunshot wounds than from any other cause in America
except motor vehicle accidents.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- So often we hear of black
genocide and we find ways to pass the blame our past;
the economy, our color: It is time for us to take the '
weight. What is the basic for domestic violence? Why ;
are there so many black on black murders in
Wednesday night, June 28 the city experienced three .
different incidents of violence where one man was killed
and two others were rushed to the hospital. One man,

head, Raymond Lavaughn
Jones, born April 12, 1968,
.in the 7000 block of Eastland
Street. He died atthe scene Robert L. Shelton
and a third, Dominique A. Burges, born, May 12, 1986,
,was found laying on the ground in an unresponsi\ e man-
ner and rushed to Shands Jacksonville. A report of the
conditions of the two victims rushed to the hospital has
not been disclosed and only one person had been arrest--
ed at the time of this writing.
Many are still stunned because of the shooting death
of 56-year-old Beverly Shelton by her husband of 38
years, Robert Lorenzo Shelton, who is retired from the
U. S. Navy and the U. S. Postal Service. The couple had
Beverly Shelton three daughters. As a housewife, she helped the elderly.
According to police records, at least five calls had,
been made to their home, the last two was because of domestic violence but aan

Pimps To Pay Taxes
Senator Charles Grassley, chairman o
the tax-writing Senate Finance committee
is seeking to have pimps and sex traffickers
and massage parlor operators pay taxes
with the same fervor it stalks-others. Under the law, the pimps would be treated as employ-
ers and would receive fines or arrest if they do not pay taxes on the monies earned. Presently,
the IRS audits pimps and sex traffickers based upon their lifestyles in order to estimate their
incomes to determine the amount of taxes due.

Transforming Prison Culture
Marc H. Morial
President and CEO of the National Urban League
What happens behind bars
in the jails and prisons of this
nation doesn't stay there. It
trickles out into the commu-
nity. Every year, 13.5 million
people -- a disproportionate
number of them African-
American -- pass through our
nation's prisons and jails,
with a vast majority 95 per-
cent eventually re-entering
Some leave their periods
of incarceration as hardened
criminals anxious to return to
a life of crime. Others do not.
In the 1990s, harsher punish-
ments for drug crimes fueled
the current prison population
boom. And in light of the
FBI's recent announcement
that violent crime was up 2.5
percent in 2005, the problem
isn't likely to go away any-
In our nation's efforts to
"'get tough on crime," we've
lost some of our compassion
for our fellow man. We've let
cynicism undermine our hope
that rehabilitation is possible
for all people no matter how
dastardly their deeds.
All human beings deserve
a modicum of respect and
dignity. But in our
nation'sprisons, you really
have to wonder if that stan-
dard is being upheld.
Inhumane conditions -
driven by overcrowding,
financial woes and under-
staffing have pushed some
prisons to the boiling point.
They're not places where
prisoners have a decent
chance at rehabilitation. They
are places where criminals
become better and more vio-
Mind you, corrections is a
tough profession, and a poor-
ly understood one.
Corrections officers often
work long shifts in tense,
overcrowded facilities with-
out enough backup, support
or training. Many wardens
run aging and understaffed
facilities and deal with a
workforce in which experi-
enced officers are likely to
leave the profession for bet-
,ter-paying, less-stressful jobs
just when they're ready to
become good mentors for
These pressures 'cause
stress, injury, and illness
among the prison workforce,
and contribute to a dangerous
culture inside. The tension is
further. exacerbated by racial
and cultural differences.
Because the exercise of
power is an important part of
a corrections officer's job, it's
natural that in situations
where staff who are under,
,stress, inexperienced, and
lack training are more likely
to abuse their power.
In prisons where the cul-
ture has devolved, rules aren't

antagonistic relationships can
erupt into overt hostility and
In the 1960s in my home
state of Louisiana, the maxi-
mum security state peniten-
tiary in Angola had a reputa-
tion for being "America's
bloodiest prison." I don't
know what prison carries that
distinction today, but I can
say with some confidence
that it is no longer Angola.
While reforms began decades
ago, the most dramatic
changes occurred over the
past 10 years as the prison's
fundamental institutional cul-
ture was profoundly trans-
Prisoners at Angola are
treated with dignity and
respect by everyone who
works there, and prisoners are
expected to reciprocate that
treatment. Prisoners have
been given hope through edu-
cation and morally based pro-
gramming, and responsibility
through meaningful employ-
ment. The fair and reliable
enforcement of the rules by
staff and prisoners means less
We recently released a

Confinement that highlights a
wide array of'dangerous con-
ditions surrounding incarcer-

segregation, lack of political

Of 30 practical reforms

The NIC already has a
very promising program in

overwhelmingly that when

The only rule about a Memorial
Service is that it should provide a
loving and positive remembrance of
the deceased. Many people wonder
about using humour or' even lively
music, however if these things
reflect the individual you are trying
to memorialize, then they can add
wonderful moments to the service.
There is nothing that says that
a Funeral or a Memorial Service has
to be costly. There are dozens of
ways to keep the cost down and still
provide that perfect tribute to your
loved one. Don't be fooled into

'much ado' the entire day as were the days preceding and
several da\ s following the 'big day'. Friends Andy Williams'

help celebrate \with the 'birthday guy'. Childhood friend Mrs.
Judy Williams hosted a post Moles Conclave Brunch for the
St, Louis natives visitingg for the long weekend. Your truly

However, our Omaha, NE family (son James C. Davis. Jr.

Nation's First Black Greek-Letter Fraternity Reflects
On Rich Past And Looks Toward Bright Future
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity
has not only been influential
in the areas of government
5 .i. and business, but also in edu-
-. .cation, community affairs,
sports and entertainment. The
fraternity's prominent mem-
bers include Rev. MIartin
,Luther King, Jr., Thurgood
S 'Marshall, Charles Rangel,
Marc Moriai, Kwame
Kilpatrick, Art Shell, Lionel
The fraternity will kick off
Darryl R. Matthews, Sr. its official 100th Anniversary
celebration at its national convention in Washington, D.C. on
Tuesday, July 25. Founded on December 4, 1906 by seven
distinct men at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, Alpha Phi
Alpha is the first and largest inter-collegiate Greek-letter fra-
ternity established for Black college students.
"Our Founders envisioned a day when the leadership of
African-American men would become widely-recognized
and respected, despite challenges of social and economic
inequality," said General president Darryl R. Matthews, Sr.
"And since many of our members have had a tremendous
impact on the nation's social and economic policies, this
made Washington an ideal place to both honor our founders'
vision and celebrate woo years of Alpha Phi Alpha achieve-
Alpha Phi Alpha has led hundreds of campaigns to uplift
the African-American community, including the Million
Dollar Campaign to support the NAACP, National Negro
College Fund and the National Urban League. The
renowned "A Voteless People is a Hopeless People" cam-
paign was the first real organized demonstration to encour-
age Africah-Americans to vote. The fraternity's most recent
campaign, the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial Project, has.
raised nearly $60 million to date.
In addition, Alpha Phi Alpha has hosted many service ini-
tiatives that have directly affected the lives of African-
American men. For more than 25 years, Alpha Phi Alpha
has partnered \\ith the March of Dimes Birth Defects
Foundation to implement "Project Alpha," a program geared
toward providing education and guidance to thousands of
teen males and hundreds of communities.
Alpha Phi Alpha's chapters combined have contributed
an estimated 650,000 in scholarships annually. Today, there
are over 200,000 members in 700 collegiate and, alumni
chapters in the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia
and Africa. The fraternity's presence in the African-
American community has remained unparalleled for the last
100 years, inspiring a host of other African-American frater-
nities and sororities.
The fraternity is committed to developing leaders, pro-
moting brotherhood and academic excellence, while provid-
ing service and advocacy for the community.
"Alpha Phi Alpha has touched the lives of many individ-
uals, in one way or another," said Matthews. "For us, this
milestone is more than a celebration of the fraternity's 100th
year. This is a celebration of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity,
Inc.'s steadfast commitment to improving the African-
American community. "
FAMU Researcher Identifies Potential Drug Candidates
For Parkinson's Disease Licensed By Biotech Company
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.--Research for Parkinson's disease, a brain dis-
order that affects about 1.5 million people in America and millions more
worldwide, may be a step closer to preventing some of the. effects of the
illness. Florida A&M University Scientist Nazarius Lamango has synthe-: -
sized promising compounds for Parkinson's disease that caught the atten--
tion of a biopharmaceutical company.
Lamango, assistant professor of medicinal chemistry in the FAMU
College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and his research team
have determined that the prenylation pathway in the brian may be nega-
tively affected in Parkinson's disease. By introducing prenyl-L-cysteine s
compounds that modulate this biochemical pathway, the side effects of
tremors, rigidity, hypokinesia and postural abnormalities observed in their
experimental model ofParkinson's disease were blocked. It is hoped that :|
these preny-L-cysteine analogs may have similar beneficial effects in '
Parkinson's and other neurological disease patients whose prenylation Nazarius Lamango
pathway enzymes may not be functioning properly.
FAMU has entered into an exclusive license with Signum Biosciences with the hope the Signum will be able to develop
commercializable therapeutics based on Lamango's research which is supported by the National INstitutes of Health.
Signum has licensed the rights to related patents from Princeton Uni ersih and Harvard Uni\ersih, and is moving forward
aperessi\ehl in this area.
The FAMU Office of Technolog) Transfer. Licensing and Commercialization has worked \ith Lamango even' step of,
the way in this endeavor to identify a licensing partner. "The FAMU faculty is involved in pioneering research that has
tremendous potential for public use and benefit," said Director Rose Glee. "This licensing deal \~ill also enhance the
Uni:ersit 's technology transfer infrastructure. "Dr. Gregory Stock, CEO of Signum. is enthusiastic about the possibilities
of Lamango's research. "There is a real need for ne\v therapeutics for Parkinson's and other ieurodegeneratike diseases,"
he said. "Lamango's research points to some very promising approaches." V
Signum. a biotechnology company inNew Jersey, focuses on the commercialization of new\ effect\ e. innovative and eco-
nomical drugs to prevent and treat diseases of aging. Lamango's patented methodology coupled \\ith research from other
scientists, may gile Signum a viable therapeutic product to take to the marketplace. .... .:: ...

JULY 1, FU0U D S P
Race continued from A-i
January 2005 and the other on June 2, 2006.
Statistics show that 25,000 women report abuse in the Jacksonville area every
year. There are many more that are not reported. In fact, one abused.victim who
stated that her husband was' a deacon in the church and too was retired from the
Navy and the post office, verbally abused her almost daily.
She often woke up during the night and saw bruises on her body that she could
not understand and never photographed or called JSO. She did realize that he would
often wake her up during the night by punching her, telling her she was snoring.
After leaving him, she realized the bruises came from his nighttime attacks during
her sleep. She was verbally, physically and financially abused, but never reported
the incident to JSO.
Abuse victims are often afraid or embarrassed. Numbers to call are: 1-800-799-
safe. In Jacksonville, there is the Hubbard House, 354-3114. Don't accept abuse.
Report continued from A-1
tims of firearm homicide. White children and teens are more likely to commit sui-
cide. The firearm death rate for Black males ages 15 to 19 is more than four times
that of White males the same age. A Black male has a 1 in 72 chance of being killed
by a firearm before his 30th birthday. Males ages 15 to 19 are more than eight
times as likely as females that age to commit suicide with a firearm.
The number of Black children and teens killed by gunfire since 1979 is more than
10 times the number of Black citizens of all ages lynched in American history.
The State of Florida was 5th and Georgia was 6th in the nation with firearm
deaths of children and teens.
Children in Jacksonville had a junior town hall meeting at the Northside summer
camp Monday and voiced their fears. One youth said he saw a killing, guns, crack
and weed. He stated that he was not trying to tell on anyone but he wanted help for
his neighborhood. The kids plan to go on a letter writing campaign to tell the
mayor and city council their thoughts.
State Senator Tony Hill along with the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and The Florida
Star initiated an essay contest for citizens to express why we are having so many
homicides in Jacksonville and what can be done to stop it and has had a remarkable
response. The contest ends July 31, 2006.
Smoke continued from A-I
infant death syndrome (SIDS), getting lung infections, ear infections and severe
California officials reported earlier this year that nearly 3,400 nonsmokers die
from lung cancer, 46,000 die from heart disease and 430 from SIDS.
The Surgeon General said, "There is no longer a scientific controversy that sec-
ondhand smoke is a killer.' He said, the report "eliminates any excuse from any
state or city for taking halfway measures to restrict smoking, or permitting smoking
in any indoor workplace."

EWC continued from A-]
prior to the EWC staff appreciation celebration. Bishop Young was joined by
Dr. Bronson; members of the Board of Trustees; Dr. Valdrie Walker, vice president
of academic affairs; and Dr. James McLean, vice president of institutional advance-
ment. Members of the community were also present to hear the good news.
"We acknowledge with gratitude, the new, positive spirit of cooperation with
SACS," said Bishop McKinley Young. He added, "This is an historic day for
Edward Waters College. We could not have asked for better news."
"This is an exciting time to be at Edward Waters College," said Dr. Walker.
"While the past year has been a demanding, yet insightful experience for the col-
lege, the results have generated great opportunities. We're looking forward to con-
tinuing positive changes that will continue enhancing Edward Waters College so
that we are providing a quality education for our students and a rigorous environ-
ment for faculty and all others."
"What a boost to our fundraising efforts for endowment and student scholar-
ships," stated Dr. McLean.
This positive news is a boost for the college as it continues to recruit students,
raise funds and reinforce its academic programs. Celebrating 140 years of service to
the community and embracing a renewed commitment to excellence and ethics, the
college is excited about the opportunity to provide access to higher education.

Tthat introduce kids to authors and expose them to books on all different sub-
jects. Encourage your children to attend these programs, and to check out and read
books that appeal to their interests. Also be on the look out for Read-A-Thons
S .*,.. where local retailers team up with libraries to offer kids prizes in exchange for
reading certain number of books.
SRead Highlights for Children magazine
SAnother great learning tool the kids should pick up this summer is the
Highlights for Children magazine, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this
Year. Launched in June 1946, "Highlights" is the most widely read consumer chil-
dren's magazine with more than 2 million readers each month, and remains
focused on helping children become their best selves.
^ ~ Among the most popular features found in each issue: a Hidden Pictures puz-
... zle that challenges young readers to find small pictures hidden inside a larger
image; "Goofus and Gallant," a feature in which two young boys model good
behavior and bad behavior in situations that are familiar to parents and kids; and
"Ask Arizona," a series in which a girl named Arizona writes an advice column
.... *~ for other children. The sections featuring science experiments and things kids can
i .j make are also extremely popular.
"In this increasingly complex world, where so often kids seem hurried through
S. "childhood, a magazine like Highlights is more important than ever," says
I' Christine French Clark, the magazine's editor. "We understand the influence of
S..^ -" words and pictures on children, so we choose ours carefully, always keeping the
S.best interests of our young readers top of mind."
Planning a road trip this summer? Don't just let your kids sit in the-back seat
S.. ..watching movies or playing video games. Encourage them to play gaiiies that will
S. keep them thinking.
Here are some ideas:
Challenge the kids to a game where they have to find all the letters .in the alphabet, in order, on road signs, license plates, billboards, etc.
Bring along puzzle-solving activities that will keep kids challenged, and make the time pass quicker. Not sure where to find age-appropriate
games? Log on to www.highlights.com and check out their online catalog. Here are some great activities for the car:
Which Way USA? is a book of activities designed for kids ages 7 and up. With a U.S. road map as their guide, children meet fascinating heroes,
visit natural and man-made wonders and relive great historical events, all while solving puzzles and reading -maps.
Puzzlemania is a book of puzzles designed for children ages 6 and up. It offers mazes, brainteasers, word games, Hidden Pictures, matching aid
memory games and more. The kids will have to use their reading, reasoning, math skills and creativity to solve the puzzles.
Hidden Pictures Playground is great for the little ones. This book of activities introduces young pre-readers and beginning readers (ages 4 and
up) to the fun of success with puzzles. Big, bold images, lots of bright colors, sticker activities, rhymes and nimore will capture young children's
interest, and help build confidence as they complete these puzzles by themselves.
Staying close to home this summer? Help your kids reinforce reading and reasoning skills with the help of www.highlightskids.com. The site
features dozens of games that closely mirror the magazine, along with other additional interactive\activities such as Mystery Messages and Picture
Twisters. For more information on subscriptions to Highlights, and Highlights book clubs, as well as Highlights Catalog, visit ww.highlights.com

I lost weight and now I have a new attitude, a new hairstyle :"'
and new outlook on life. All of my friends who should be
happy for me are jealous, treating me bad and talking about
me behind my back. I noticed they never had a problem :..A -
when I was the fat chick in the group but now that I'm
smaller than they are, it's a problem. I didn't have a

New Skinny Girl (Las Vegas, NV) ..
SDear New Skinny Girl.
Plain and simple your friends are jealous because you're getting the attention. Your
weight loss has revealed them as the insecure skinny biddies they've always been. You
never saw this side of them because they were comfortable with you as the fatty so you
were not any competition to them. Enjoy your new life and if your friends can't see that
you're the same person then it's their loss and you need to keep smiling and keep it mov-

I'm complaining about my brother I've lost due to a relationship. He's been dating this
girl for a few months and she pulls him by the nose. He does everything she says,
ignores the family and tries to be something he's not in order to please her It's annoy-
ing because if I want him to hang out, he says it causes arguments with his girlfriend.
How do I let my brother know that blood is thicker than water and he needs to loosen
up on his relationship?
Michael (Denver, CO)
Yes blood is thicker than water but bliss sometimes is better than brotherhood. Let your
brother sow his wild oats in peace. If you were the one in a relationship you would
understand the happiness during the honeymoon phase of dating. Support your brother
and get to know his girlfriend because if their love grows, she'll be your new sister-in-
Slaw and you'll never win this battle or any others. In other words, if he's not being mis-
treated, mind your business.
I want to respond to the advice you gave Anonymous in Seattle whose sister lets her chil-
dren listen to rap music. I think it was wrong for you to call her ignorant. That was very
rude and insensitive. Rap music is fine for all ages and children should be able to lis-
ten to it as long as the curse words are edited. I let my children listen to all kinds of
music including hardcore rap and we haven't had any problems.
Althea (Columbia, SC)
You fell and bumped your head and I hope you had a nice trip. Of course hardcore rap
music is okay ifyou want your children to grow up impressed by women dropping it like
it's hot or guys being gang bangers. Your children apparently are still young and haven 't
had the opportunity to become destructive but if they ever do, they'll have good old mom
to thank as you cry your eyes out and pull your hair from the roots.

Growing Great Neighborhoods
Keeping Jacksonville's citizens safe is one of the
most significant responsibilities of government, and one
of xy top priorities as mayor. Since taking office, I'\ e
allocated nearly $1 billion for public safety as part of the
Safety First initiative, and a significant portion of that
money went to help the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
Law enforcement is only one part of the fight '
against crime, however. In fact, there are other things we I
can do as individuals, families and a community to change the environments that
foster crime. With that in mind, I recently announced a new initiative, Seeds of
Change: Growing Great Neighborhoods, that aims to strengthen neighborhoods
through beautification, improved infrastructure, code enforcement, housing and
community involvement. By planting trees, reducing blight, working with law
enforcement, encouraging homeowner investment, and facilitating communication
among our neighbors, we can work to eliminate the environments that lead to dete-
rioration and encourage criminal activity.
While some elements of the initiative will be implemented citywide, Seeds
of Change: Growing Great Neighborhoods will focus the majority of its efforts in
two neighborhoods that will serve as pilot sites: Northwest Jacksonville and
Historic Arlington. This concentration gives us the opportunity to make a long-last-
ing and significant impact in those communities, and we will have a working model
for implementing Seeds of.Change in other parts of the city in the future.
Seeds of Change: Growing Great Neighborhoods puts.an emphasis on work-
ing with neighborhood residents to remove litter, improve infrastructure, enhance
code enforcement and better manage city owned property in the areas. It also calls
for increasing the public's awareness of existing city services, and developing part-
nerships with community groups to assist them in keeping their community clean
We will be working closely with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) to
identify new ways to reduce overall crime. One element will be of this partnership
is a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) review of all city
owned property. CPTED is a key law enforcement strategy that identifies and elim-
inates physical structures, design elements and naturally occurring conditions such
as tall grass, dark streets or vegetation overgrowth that create havens for criminal
activity. The city will also encourage redevelopment through "Project Clean Slate,"
which provides an amnesty period for homeowners to clear their properties of exist-
ing code enforcement fines and bring their properties into compliance.
Seeds of Change will help open the lines of communication between the
community and law enforcement through study circles, look to the faith communi-
ty to build unity, and create more recreational opportunities for our families. It has
also identified ways to engage the youth of our communities through summer jobs
and summer camps programs. The camps and jobs offer our young people a safe and
productive summer experience while helping them build character, develop leader-
ship traits and increase respect for themselves and others. To date, the city and the
business community have stepped up to sponsor summer camps for an additional
286 children and summer jobs for more than 300 young adults.
The success of this initiative depends heavily on the participation of those
living within the designated neighborhoods. I encourage you to get involved start
or join your neighborhood organization, and be a part of building a. better
Jacksonville. By working together, I am confident that' we can achieve vibrant,
dynamic, balanced and successful neighborhoods.

zation, or how to start your own, please call the city's Neighborhood Services

DON'T RUN THE LIGHT IN BRUNSWICK
It's a city of around 18,000 but it is getting to be more modem.
If you are travelling on the south-bound lanes of "I" Street at the intersection of
Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and the light is yellow, don't be tempted to continue.
Stop, because someone is watching you, even if you don't see a police vehicle.
Brunswick has installed its first red light camera that will photograph offenders who
make a decision to keep going. After the photograph is reviewed by the Police
Department and it is determined that a violation has been committed, a citation will be
mailed to the owner of the vehicle. Of course, if the owner is not behind the wheels, it
would be to their benefit to know who was and have his or her own alibi.

UNDERAGE DRINKING BEING WATCHED
Recently, the Youth Services Unit of the St. Johns County Sheriffs Office worked a joint operation with
the State Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco. The focus of the operation was to conduct compliance
checks on licensed retail businesses that sell alcoholic beverages. St. Johns County has noticed an increase in
the sale and use of alcoholic beverages by underage persons over the past few years. Over the past several
months the Sheriffs Office and other local law enforcement agencies have conducted underage enforcement
details throughout the County focusing on youth with possession of alcohol and open house parties.
With. the use of underageinvestigative aides, a total of 58 .businesses were checked in St. Johns County.
A total of 23 of them unlawfully sold alcoholic beverages to the investigative aides. These numbers clearly
show a need for businesses to increase training and management of employees. The investigative teams
noticed a large number of clerks had overridden the cash register prompt to check the id.
The clerks who made the unlawful sales were charged with Unlawful Sale of Alpoholic Beverages to a
minor, which is a misdemeanor charge in the State of Florida. The establishments also face administrative
inquires by the State as to the future status of their Beverage License. Penalties could range from warnings,
suspension or revocation of the Beverage License and financial penalties.
This has been an ongoing enforcement effort by the St. Johns County Sheriffs Office in cooperation
with other local and state law enforcement. It is not enough to license businesses to sell alcohol without educa-
tion and enforcement to balance things out. The purpose of the enforcement details are to raise awareness to
the problem of underage drinking in St. Johns County and deter businesses and individuals from providing our
youth with alcohol. The goal of law enforcement is to reduce underage alcohol consumption and alcohol relat-
ed traffic injury arid death.
Clerks at the following businesses unlawfully sold alcoholic beverages to.a minor:

THE FOUNDATION FoI A BETTER LIFE
By Melissa Ross
REMINDER OF IMPORTANCE OF IMMUNIZATIONS
In the wake of a recent mumps outbreak, health officials and insurers across the Sunshine State are working to raise awareness about the importance of keeping immu-
The viral illness, which first cropped up in the Midwest, has apparently reached Florida. In late April, a 49-year-old Nassau County woman reported symptoms of the
disease. It's believed she contracted it while visiting
Iowa, the source of the outbreak.
Mumps is considered to be a mild viral illness, but it can cause severe side effects in about 10 percent of those infected. Potential complications include encephalitis,
or swelling in the brain, and in male patients, inflammation of the testes, which in rare cases can lead to infertility.
The Florida woman who reported mumps-like symptoms works in nearby Georgia as an employee of a high school near the Florida-Georgia state line.
Two doses of the mumps vaccine, are considered to be roughly 80 to 90% effective in protecting the patient from the disease.
But even though the remaining 10 to 20% of those who've had the shots can still get mumps, health care providers still see the outbreak as a timely reminder of the impor-
tance of keeping current with immunizations.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, for example, says it takes a proactive role in encouraging its patient population to remember vaccinations, sending monthly mail-
ers targeting newborns and adolescents to all HMO members. The company also has a contract with Florida's State Health Department that accesses their online immu-
nization registry. "We recognize the importance of immunizations to the health of the individual child as well as the community overall," says Marion Allen.Clinical Quality
Improvement Specialist for the insurer. Meantime, health officials say the mumps strain criss-crossing the country is similar to one affecting the United Kingdom since
2004. That country reports more than 70,000 mumps cases, affecting mostly unvaccinated young.adults.
In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports more than 1,300 suspected or confirmed cases, mostly in Iowa and other Midwestern states.
The Florida Department of Health is urging all residents to review their vaccine records to make sure their shots and those of their children are current.

Venus Williams Has Positive Outlook On Wimbledon Tournament
--For the second year in a
row, Venus Williams begins
the Wimbledon tournament
with little success to draw on
in recent months. A long lay-
off again raised questions
about her health and motiva-
tion, and she has played only
14 matches since September.
Williams hasn't won a
tournament since last year's
Wimbledon, and she's seed-
ed only sixth strange for a
player with a 34-3 record at
the All England Club since
2000. She's the fourth choice
of London bookmakers,
behind 2004 champion
French Open champion
Justine Henin-Hardenne and
U.S. Open winner Kim
Still, no one will be eager
to face Williams, the winner
of five Grand Slam titles.
Williams, 26, said retire-
ment's not on the horizon for
her, but it has been several
years since she kept a full
schedule. After a first-round
loss at the Australian
Open in January, she missed
more than three months with
an elbow injury. She said
she'll sit out the U.S. tie
against Belgium in the Fed
Cup semifinals in mid-July.
"I can't play that much
tennis and stay healthy," she
said. "It's a proven fact."
Williams' most recent
match was three weeks ago
at the French Open, where
she lost to 17-year-old
Nicole Vaidisova in the
quarterfinals. She flew home
to Florida, skipping the
grass-court warmup tourna-
ments as usual, and began
practicing at Wimbledon on
Wednesday. It's her 10th
year at the All England
Club. At least one Williams
sister has played in the past
six Wimbledon finals, but
absent from the field this
year is Serena, the champion
in 2002-03. Hobbled by a
knee injury, she has been
idle since the Australian
Venus said her .younger
sister will likely rejoin the
tour for the hard-court sea-

Man Gets 30 Months For Biting Agent
SAN JOSE, Calif. A San Jose man was sentenced to
30 months in prison for biting one U.S. Secret Service
agent and kicking another in the forehead.
Jay David Hemm, 43, was sentenced Tuesday after
pleading guilty to two counts of assault, said Luke Macaulay,
a spokesman for federal prosecutors.Hemm tried using a
forged check in August at Nordstrom Rack in San Jose while
two secret service agents were in the store picking up a sur-
veillance tape for another case. The agents were asked to
examine the check after it wouldn't process and concluded it
was probably fraudulent. Hemm fled when confronted.
The agents struggled with Hemm outside the store, where
he bit one agent on the forearm and kicked the other in the
head, court documents said. Hemm fell and got a bloody
head wound. Concerned about possible HIV transmis-
sion, the agents let Hemm go, Macaulay said. He was arrest-
ed later by San Jose police at a nearby apartment complex
and appeared to be under the influence of drugs, according
to court documents.
Hemm pleaded guilty in April to two federal assault
charges. He also was convicted of a state forgery charge,
Macaulay said. After serving time, Hemm will be placed on
three years supervised release that requires drug testing,
counseling, and home searches.

Woman Gets Severed
Human Finger In Mail
CORPUS CHRISTI. Texas A woman received a sev-
ered human finger in the mail along \\ ith a threatening letter
from her ex-boyfriend that said, "This is my last chance to
touch you," police said.
Corpus Christi Police Capt. John Houston said police
weren't sure which finger was removed or how, but that it
appeared to have been washed before it was mailed Friday.
"It vas a clean cut," Houston said. "It wasn't mangled."
The 32-year-old woman filed for an emergency protec-
tive order from her boyfriend last week.
Police didn't release the name of the 34-year-old ex-
boyfriend, 'who has not been located. He has moved to
Spring, but police there could not confirm the status of the
search for him.
Corpus Christi police said a previous incident of family
violence was reported between the couple this month.
The man faces Class A misdemeanor charges from that
incident and additional charges because of the threatening
nature of the letter.
Sneaker Disrupts Albany's Eternal Flame
ALBANY, Ga. The city's eternal flame has withstood
high winds and torrential rains for more than 30 years, but an
errant tennis shoe proved too much of an impediment.
Firefighters shut down the flanme briefly Monday so that
they could pull out the charred sneaker. "There was a situa-

tossed a tennis shoe in it. We had to shut.it off to remove the
The flame, which sits atop a 6-foot black, -granite
pedestal, has been burning-in front of the Dougherty County
Courthouse since 1973, placed there by the American Legion
to memorialize the men and women who have fought in the

ing once again;

The work week includes
those from far away places
who are or become your
friends, open up with others.
Thursday working alone is
important. This week lucky
numbers are: 11, 17, 27, 39,
Pisces (February 19 -
March 20) You
seem to be trying
to find ways in
which to increase i
your personal resources and
to build up a savings
account. Whatever you
decide to do this week turns
out well even though it
requires a great deal of your
time. Your imagination is
working very well now and
you could come up with
something quite original and
yet practical at the same
time. Lack of spare time will
have an affect on your rela-
tionship on' Sunday and
Monday. Slow down this
week and take care that you
do not become overly.
aggressive, particularly with
women if you are male.
There may be little gains
made with a lot of effort this
week at work. You will also
need to exercise some
degree of patience, particu-
larly if you have been feel-
ing frustration with your job,
home or relationships. This
week lucky numbers are: 2,
6, 24, 26, 32.

winning Gospel artist

Crouch began his
career in his father's
church where he started
playing the piano at age
nine with no formal
training. By the early

dozens of other awards

We had already filed
our column last week and
didn't mention the funeral
services of the late key-
great Billy Preston. Our
prayers and well wishes go
out to his family, friends
and fans. The same
thoughts go out to the fam-
ily, friends and fans of the
late Claydes Charles
Smith who made his transi-
tion to the ancestors after a
lengthy undisclosed illness.
Smith was the co-founder
and lead guitarist for Kool
and The Gang. He wrote
"Joanna" and "Take My
Heart" and co-wrote
Swinger" and "Jungle
Boogie." Smith is survived
by his six children and nine

Tyrese Gibson, Meagan

Vondie Curtis Hall. Hall
also had a hand in writing
the screenplay. 02
(Gibson), is an ex-con who
is forced to return to the
underworld of crime to raise
the $100,000 needed to free

leader of the Outlaws who
are holding junior for the
$100000. 02 owes Meat.
02 happens upon a street

who becomes his ally to get
junior back. This movie is

The game is pretty scary in
looks and action. Playing a
thug wasn't too much of a
stretch for him. We'll see
how his acting chops hold

He is the real life son of the
film's director Vondie Hall.
Tyrese held his own and
gets better with every new
movie. This may be one of
Meagan Good's best roles
yet. This project proves
without question that she is a
bona fide leading lady capa-
ble of carrying any film. She
has it all i.e., the acting
chops, the looks and the
screen presence. This film
will solidify her status as
one of Hollywood's hottest
