We accomplished the removal
of the wall, the curtain offer
in Mississippi for African-
Americans demanding their
rights. We eliminated the iso-
lation of African-Americans
from the political process. I
believe that Mississippi now
has the highest number of
African-American elected offi-

groundwork for that. We real-

Those were the words of
pioneering civil rights activist
Victoria Jackson Gray Adams,
who passed away on August
12. Victoria Gray, as I knew
her from my early civil rights
lawyer days in Mississippi,
was one of the founders of the
Freedom Democratic Party
(MFDP), which mounted a
historic challenge to the all-
White official Mississippi
state delegation at the 1964
Convention. Earlier that year,
she became the first woman
from Mississippi to run for the
United States Senate. As she
said, her brave actions helped
break down barriers, of fear
and tradition anc change the
political process in
Mississippi and the rest of the
Victoria Gray Adams was
born in 1926 in Palmers
Crossing, Miss., a Black com-
munity that is now part of
Hattiesburg. As a child grow-
ing up in the 1930s and 1940s,
she had plenty of personal
experience with segregation.
After graduating from high
school in 1945, she enrolled at
Wilberforce University in
Ohio, but had to return home
after a year when tuition
money ran out. She started a
family and became a success-
ful businesswoman, selling
When civil rights workers
first came to Hattiesburg,
many Black churches and
families were afraid to wel-
come them, but Adams stood
up and was instrumental in
helping house the workers and
making sure her church would
allow them to hold meetings
there and help provide the
other support they needed.
The civil rights workers
immediately saw and appreci-
ated her leadership in the com-
munity and urged her to
become an active participant.
She became one of the first
people from her area to attend
the citizenship schools run by
the late, great Septima Clark,
which trained people to return
home and engage in voter
education and registration in
their own communities. Vicky
Gray later remembered her
first experiences quietly teach-
ing nighmme "literacy class-
es," which were also serving
as citizenship and voter educa-
tion classes, to a small group
of fellow Blacks from her
hometown: "At the end of
every class period, we would
sing 'We shall overcome, we
shall overcome, someday.' So
we were doing that ritual, and
I remember saying to myself,
'You've got to be kidding. You
have got to be kidding. What
on earth is this group going to
overcome?' I never forgot
that, because Hattiesburg had
one of the most vibrant citizen
movements of that time. And
it grew, to a large extent, from
that little band of people."
With the faith and dedication
of leaders like Victoria Gray
Adams, that little band would
go on to make the impossible
As a founding member of
the MissisSippi Freedom
Democratic Party, she ignored
the potential danger to her
own safety when she agreed to
be the party's candidate to
challenge powerful segrega-
tionist John Stennis for his
Senate seat in 1964. MFDP's
next step was to challenge
their state's segregated delega-
tion to the 1964 Democratic
National Convention. Their
attempt to be seated brought
them national attention and
sympathy, as thousands of
Americans watched the televi-
sion coverage of party Vice
Chair Fannie Lou Hamer's
legendary testimony explain-.

actions changed the \\a\ states.
could choose their part, dele-
gations for good. Later.
Victoria Gray Adams, Hamer,
and fellow MFDP member
Annie Devine became the first
Black women to be seated as
guests on the floor of the
House of Representatives.
Throughout the rest of her
long career as an educator,
campus minister, and a
founder and leader of other
Victoria Gray Adams never
wavered in her struggle to
transform our nation for the .
better. She also never stopped
reminding others that the need
for willing workers is still
strong. As she said in an inter-
view a few years ago, "People
talk about marches, and the
marches were important, they
played a tremendous role. But
where did those marches
come from? What precipitated
it? Where did people get the
courage after 100 years t6 rise
up and begin to do that, know-
ing full well that they were
taking their lives .in. their
hands? Even though 'you
might have seen thousands of
people. out there marching,
that whole thing started some-
where. with somebody."
,Victoria Gray Adams took
the bold step of choosing to be
one of those somebodies. Her:
example is a strong reminder
to the rest of us. in the post-
Katrina era, that choosing to
be a somebody for justice is as
crucial as ever.

Everyone sends flowers to a
funeral. Sometimes families can
become deluged with plantsand flow-
ers of every imaginable size, shape ,
and arrangement Graves someiime
overflow with sprays and MTeaihs
While flo\iers are certainly a beauti-
ful way to celebrate a life. there is no
written rule ihat states you'ha\e to
send a gne\ing person a Ilower or
plant. There are plenty, of things that
you can do instead that \%ill be
remembered long after the funeral is
over. Here are a few ideas:
1. Consider a chartable conmtbu-
tion in lieu of flowers. It is'especially
nice to give to a cause that was close
to the deceased or their family. It is a
very common practice to make a
charitable contribution in someone's
memory or name. Examples may'
include a donation in the deceased's
name to the SPCA for someone who
loved animals, a donation to a public
library for a book lover, or a gift to the,.
American Cancer Instirute for some-
one who lost a battle to cancer.
2. Consider a lasting memorial
like a plaque. brick or nameplate at a
public landmark or other community
propeny Areas around town that
have histone restoranons going on
will often have community members
purchase bricks, or plaques with their
names on them to help finance a prol-
3. Have:a tree or bench put in
your park in the deceased's name
Many parks will allo% people to
donate money for benches,, trees oi
plants and will include a memory
plaque at the site. Check with youi
local parks department or historical
society for more-information.;

The African American
Collection at the JPL Opens
The African American Collection opened at the Jacksonville
Public Library recently to an overwhelming audience of apprecia-
tive First Coasters. The collection, a wonderful source of data that
highlights the culture and gifts of our people on the First Coast and
the world as a whole is there for us now and the generations that
follow. It is another source that tells of the legacy of our commu-
nity. The collection contains material that gives a snapshot of the
historical, social, civic, religious, economic, and cultural life of our
African American heritage.
The families of the local icons were present for this wonderful
occasion and the speech give by Mrs. Betty Sessions was inform-
ative and breathtakingly inspiring. The music from the Ribault
Senior High School Chorus under the direction of Dr. Eugene
White was emotionally moving. Our souls were truly stitred as
we sang all of the verses of the Negro National Anthem especially
with my favorite verse, the last verse:
"God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, Our God, where we: met
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of ith world, we forget
Shadowed beneath Tin hand.
May we forever stand.
True to our GOD,
True to our native land".
James Weldon Johiscon
According to the web page information. "This emerging col-
lection contains books, microfilm, microfiche. periodicals, and
more than 1700 subject and biography files. Unique resources in
the collection include photographs. personal papers arid priniar

Study Shows Link Between Morbid Obesity, Low IQ In Toddlers
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- University of Florida researchers
have discovered a link between morbid obesity in toddlers
and lower IQ scores, cognitive delays and brain lesions sim-
ilar to those seen in Alzheimer's disease patients, a new
Although the cause of these cognitive impairments is still
unknown, UF researchers suspect the metabolic disturbances
obesity causes could be taking a toll on young brains, which
are still developing and not fully protected, they write in an
article published in the Journal of Pediatrics this month.
"It's well-known that obesity is associated with a number
of other medical problems, such as diabetes, hypertension
and elevated cholesterol," said Dr. Daniel J. Driscoll, a UF
professor of molecular genetics and microbiology in the
College of Medicine and the lead author of the study. "Now,
we're postulating that early-onset morbid obesity and these
metabolic, biochemical problems can also lead to cognitive
Researchers compared 18 children and adults with early-
onset morbid obesity, which means they weighed at least 150
percent of their ideal body weight before they were 4, with
19 children and adults with Prader-Willi syndrome, and with
24 of their normal-weight siblings. Researchers chose lean
siblings as a control group "because they share a socioeco-
nomic group and genetic background," Driscoll said.
The links between cognitive impairments and Prader-
Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes people to eat
nonstop and become morbidly obese at a very young age if
not supervised, are well-established. But researchers were
surprised to find that children and adults who had become
obese as toddlers for no known genetic reason fared almost
as poorly on IQ and achievement tests as Prader-Willi
patients. Prader-Willi patients had an average IQ of, 63 and
patients with early-onset morbid obesity had an average of
The control group of siblings had an average IQ of 106,
which falls within the range of what is considered normal
"It was surprising to find that they had an average iQ
score of 78, whereas their control siblings were 106,"
Driscoll said. "We feel this may be another complication of
obesity that may not be reversible, so it's very important to
watch what children eat even from a very young age. It's not
just setting them up for. problems later on, it could affect
their learning potential now."
While performing head MRI scans of subjects,
researchers also discovered white-matter lesions on the
brains of many of the Prader-Willi and early-onset morbidly
obese patients. White-matter lesions are typically found on
the brains of adults who have developed Alzheimer's disease
or in children with untreated phenylketonuria, the
researchers wrote. These lesions could be affecting food-
seeking centers of the brain, causing the children to feelhun-
grier. But they are most likely a result of metabolic changes
that damage the young, developing brain. Driscoll said.
More studies are needed to understand what is causing
these cognitive impairments, said Dr. Merlin Butler, a pro-
Selected As One Of The Top 200
Creative Colleges In The Nation
A new book, "Creative Colleges: A Guide for Student
Actors. Artists. Dancers. Musicians and Writers" has named
Bethune-Cookman College as one of the top 200 Colleges in
the nation for creative students. This guide is aimed at col-
lege-bound creative students and gives them the information
and resources necessary to pick the right program.
The author meticulously researched programs from
across the country and ultimately selected 200 art. drama.
dance, music and creative writing programs in arts conserva-
tories. liberal arts colleges and universities to recommend to
potential students. Bethune-Cookman College's exceptional.
Music Program was the bases of the institution's selection.
"Dating back to our founding history, the performing arts
at Bethune-Cookman' College has attracted some of our
country's finest aspiring musicians, states Bethune-
Cookman College President. Dr. Trudie Kibbe Reed. We are
pleased to have received this recognition for what we know
is one of the most highly regarded and most comprehensive
music programs in the Southeastern United States". The
author. Elaina Loveland, is a former editor of the NACAC'
Journal of College Admission and holds a master's degree in
English and has taught both college-level English and dance
to children in the Washington. DC, area.,
She is an active member of the National Dance Education
Organization and lives ui Alexandria, Virginia. Offering

, Bethune-Cookman' College's Music Program is highly laud-
: ed nationwide. Complemented by a strong music technolo-
gy initiative, the program offers students'the opportunity to
study with faculty who are national and international per-
forming artists and scholars.
More than 600 of the College's almost 3,000 students are
involved in the music program and its fifteen performing
ensembles including,the renowned Concert Chorale which

fessor of pediatrics at the University of Missouri and chief of
genetics and molecular medicine at Children's Mercy
Hospital and Clinics.
"This could be a really significant observation," Butler
said. "It's an interesting concept. It's a whole new area of
investigation." The findings are preliminary and additional
studies are planned, Driscoll said. Dr. Jennifer Miller, a UF
assistant professor of pediatric endocrinology and the first
author of the study, and other researchers from UF, All
Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla., and Baylor
College of Medicine also took part in the research.
Although there is no known genetic cause for early-onset
morbid obesity, Driscoll said there are likely genetic and
hormonal factors at play. that researchers have yet to discov-
er, particularly since these children are becoming obese at a
time when their parents still control what they eat. The
researchers studied several sets of fraternal twins where one
twin was lean and the other morbidly obese, yet their parents
reported that each ate the same amount of food. In one case,
the obese child actually ate less, Driscoll said.
Driscoll is also careful to point out that adults or children
who become obese later in childhood are not at-risk for these
cognitive impairments because their brains are sufficiently
developed to fend off damage from obesity."We're all mind-
ful that this is an obese society," he said. "We all need to be
more careful with respect to what we eat, but in particular,'
that's very important for children under 4."

Jacksonville's Climbing Murder Rate:
The real Problem And Solutions
Jacksonville, as we continue conjuring up more excuses for pulling triggers, we
are allowing our city's murder and homicide rates to skyrocket. The real working
solutions lie within the same community that is the culprit of the problem. Sadly,
we have allowed ourselves to become a poorly educated people who become unfit
parents and create divided homes. We succumb to peer pressure as juveniles and
fail to cultivate leadership skills as adults. Racism still exists even where Equal
Opportunity Employment signs hang, but we lack the proper etiquette and skills to
qualify for job opportunities and turn to illegal activities. The con games we run
and the drugs that we sell are further destroying families, friendships and self. We
then become jealous of those who have made it out of the struggle, use our poor
upbringing as a crutch and are so consumed with self hatred that we quickly find a
way to sabotage the success of others. We blame law enforcement when we are cre-
ating more homicide scenes for them to investigate than they can handle.
We have to take responsibility for raising our children by becoming involved
with their education which includes meeting their teachers and friends, helping with
homework and taking an interest in their activities. We need to communicate with
family and friends, support and encourage one another to prevent further break up
of homes. Stop choosing to associate with those who are helping us carry our cas-
kets to the grave. Congratulate others on their accomplishments to overcome jeal-
ousy and follow their examples. Then we will attain that status of a proud, rich and
hard-working community that we once were known as. The problem, the solution,

With Gregory And Debra Morrison By MarshaDeanPhelts
At Home Photographs
By Michael R. Phelts
As the sweltering summer breezes begin tapering into the trade winds of fall The Florida Star is privileged to take our readers on a grand,tour
to the seaside home of Gregory and'Debra Morrison. The Morrison home is the newest addition on American Beach.
Growing upon the East Coast and loving it the Morrisons
I I wanted a home at the beach. Gregory's summer beach ventures
I were on Atlantic Beach (a former Black beach) and Myrtle
-. Beach in South Carolina. Going to the Jersey Shore and
Atlantic City in New Jersey was a summer beach family ritual
1 for Debra.
The Morrisons are dual residents of Duluth, Georgia and
American Beach. Gregory Morrison is Vice President and
Chief Information Officer for Cox Enterprises, one of the lead-
ing media companies in the nation. He is responsible for tech-
nology planning for all corporate operations. Debra Morrison
is a manager for IBM Corporation, Inc. and i a board member
of IBM's Community Council. 'She facilitates global staffing
for commercial accounts in the countries of India, Brazil and
China. One of the perks in heir job is that she works from home
whether from her computer station in Duluth or from her com-
puter station on American Beach where she watches dolphiis
swinmiing at sea or gopher tortoises foraging on the landscape.
She also -works with the Atlanta Symphony and the Alliance
., .. ..- _. .- .. Children Theatre.
Debra Morrison Gregory Morrison Location, Location, Location
\Vhen the Morrisons moved to Jacksonville in the 1990s
their friends Tony and Janice Nelson introduced them to the
,, "".American Beach community. Coming to American Beach
for their first time the Morrisons fell head over heels in love
with the beach. Their hearts were arrested by all that they
would see, hear, touch, taste and feel while hanging out with
the Nelson family on this Historic African American Beach.
Gregory was excited about the possibilities of living at
A.American Beach and aggressively sought property for sale.
Before finding a lot on American Beach the T\Iorrisons had
looked for ocean front properties around Destin in the
Panhandle of the state, Fripp Island in South Carolina and
-. St. Augustine Beach. The deciding factor in building on
American Beach had to be because their friends Cynthia
and Ron Austin, Barbara and Carlton Jones, Janice and
Tony Nelson and Wanda and Floyd Willis were already
enjoying life at this quaint seaside enclave.
Finding a parcel for sale was not easy and neither was getting the building permit. Approval from the Environmental Protection Agency was
one of the most challenging aspects of the building process. After clearing construction hurdles. it wasn't long before their magnificent house began
going up, one steel reinforced concrete beam at a time. By the spring of 2004 it was all systems go for the lot had been prepared. No less than 24
reinforced steel beams that would withstand the 500-year storm that washes away 12 feet of soil were drilled 40 feet below the surface. To sup-
port the home' foundation the same technique used for construction of a multistory parking garage was engineered.

Turtle Dream. Seaward of their home an active nest of
protected sea turtle eggs are incubating outside the front
It is evident that a turtle theme is carried out in
grand style from each room of the tri level home. In the
entrance corridor brass turtle serves as the base for the
lamp on the console table. A life size sea turtle occu-
pies a space on the platform between the first and sec-
ond level of the open riser staircase. The red oak wood
for the staircase came from upstate New York; the spin-
dles along the staircase are clear acrylic. With the
exception of the staircase and one bedroom all of the
floors are of porcelain tiles. The legs of tables and
dressers are intricate carvings of turtles. Polished stone
turtles adorn tops of tables and walls. Each bedroom
has California style closets that allow more freestand-
ing space in the room. In addition to appliances the
laundry room has a large rack for folding cloths.
Once development of their beach home was under-
way gopher tortoises were discovered nesting on the
property. The Environmental Protection Agency halted
construction for four months while the turtles and their
tunnels were relocated nearby.
The Morrisons appropriately named their home built
in a gopher tortoise patch "Turtle Dream". All size turtles
are seen throughout the day nibbling on tasty morsels of
domestic plants and other natural vegetation such as
As Gregory designed the American Beach home, a
few traditional features of their Atlanta home are apparent. Decorative crown molding sets off the framed trim for the recessed tray ceilings. The
classical char-rail wainscoting design of the lower white walls further enhances the deep roseate colored walls in the formal dining room. The beach
home \hile filled with natural light that filters through silhouette blinds and French doors has elements of Georgian architecture. Amazingly arch-
es and columns painted white adapt quite well with the seashells, sea.oats and sand on the shore. An uninterrupted magnificent view of the ocean
is seen from every room. This splendid home has a relaxing, tropical atmosphere. The universal welcoming symbol of the pineapple is subtly fea-
tured throughout the interior.

The beauty of the gourmet kitchen with polished
granite counters; pull out shelves, an enormous walk in
pantry and top of the line institution appliances makes
cooking more of a joy rather than a chore. For conven-
ience a veggie sink has been installed in the island. The
kick space under the island provides even more cabinet
room. Cookie and baking sheets are stored vertically in a
specially designed cabinet.
Debra's favorite location in their beach house is the
sunroom off from the kitchen. A wrap around built in
bench under the windows that seat eight runs along the
east and south walls. The spaces underneath serve as
storage cabinets. On the west side of the sunroom indi-
vidual stools can be used at the breakfast counter or the
table. This is the spot where the family savors morning
coffee while watching a school of dolphins put on their
routine romp off shore.
Family, Friends and Fun
The Morrisons are parents of three. Their daughter
recently graduated from Florida State University and
their twin sons attend Georgia Southwestern. Though
their children enjoy time spent here, the quietness of
American Beach and Amelia Island leave a lot to be
desired as far as entertainment and places to go are con-

ally makes 350 crab balls using her special recipe and only lump crabmeat.

For the Christmas party they hire a chef who arranges and displays the del-
icacies and man the pasta station where individual'orders are placed. All of
the sauces for the pasta are homemade. Debra is a gourmet cook. She has
served exotic foods such as ostrich steaks and buffalo but abhors the thought
of cooking sea turtle steaks or a pot of gopher tortoise stew though both land
and sea turtles crawl to her door steps.
Of course in today's environmental conscious society eating these protected
species is against the law, but native
and long time American Beach peo-
ple think nothing of "looking a gift
horse in the mouth" and will cook
turtle from land or sea when the
opportunity is available.

ICRIE S CORNER
Ask Deanna! is an advice column known for its fearless
approach to reality-based subjects!
Over the years I have built a reputation as a strong, inde-
pendent woman. Now that I'm older I want to date, settle
down and get married. However the men I meet are weak,
have financial problems and don't want to commit to me. I
go on dates but when these men see that I'm on their level,
they become intimidated and can't deal with me. Do I need
to lower myself to their level because I don't know what
else to do.
You need to get over yourself because seriously, you're not all that. You seem to
have a complex that comes across as rude and arrogant instead of strong and confi-
dent. There's a possibility the men you meet are fine but your superior attitude caus-
es you to miss the essence of a man's character. Stop being so high and mighty and
learn to focus on the man's qualities and get to know him before passing judgment
which causes your many lonely nights.
My sister buys clothing that is too adult for her high school daughter. My niece is
developed and can pass for an older woman. Her wardrobe of mini-skirts, reveal-
ing tops and high heels is too much for me to handle. Her mother and I argue
because she wants her daughter to be feminine and up-to-date with fashion but I feel
she looks like a hoochie half of the time and men may disrespect her. Am I wrong
to have a talk with my niece or do I leave things alone?
The Community Oriented Police Services (COPS) pro-
gram is one of the most important in our nation's fight
against crime. Simply put, it makes sense to have more
police on the streets of dangerous neighborhoods, which is
what COPS grants provide. Across the state of Florida this
year. we have witnessed a sharp spike in crime, especially
in violent crimes, such as homicide. This year Jacksonville
has endured the highest homicide rate in the state, with
more murders than Miami, Orlando and Tampa combined.
Moreover, the year 2006 for Orlando has not been much
Sbener, and has proven to be one of the city's deadliest, with
S 37 homicides committed to date. South Florida is not far
wy behind, as Miami-Dade has seen 25 kids under 18 killed by
migulfire within the last 15 months. So in a year when we
i ha e seen crime rates spiking nationwide, it is quite ironic
that the administration would be attempting to wipe out an effective crime fighting tool such
as the COPS program.
In reality, the administration has been trying to zero out COPS funding for the last few
years. In the House passed FY 07 Commerce Justice State appropriations bill, Republicans
slashed funding for local law enforcement assistance grants by nearly 50%. Of the 44 largest
cities, 27 have had to reduce the number of police they put on the 'streets because of funding
cuts. Republicans have also under funded critical law enforcement needs for hiring, training.
and technical assistance, protective equipment and communication equipment.
For every $1 invested in COPS grants, we see a decline of 10 violent crimes and 27 prop-
erty crimes per 100,000 residents, according to the Department of Justice. Fortunately, this
year in the Heuse bill, even though the President was bent-on not funding COPS, COPS fund-
ing ended up increasing by 17% over last year's level. My colleagues and I will certainly be
doing everything within our power to encourage the Senate to maintain this level of finding
for this program, and putting in the necessary money to ensure this program continues-to aid
in the battle to keep our neighborhoods safe.
Dear Concerned Aunt:
It's okay to be a nosy aunt but you may have to remove your nose from your sis-
ters business. This wardrobe issue is a twoway street because your sister is buying
the clothes and obviously your niece is wearing them. They only complaint is from
you which is a true safety concern but is being received as player hating and nag-
ging. The only thing you can do is talk with your niece to ensure she behaves prop-
erly regardless of her attire, hope for the best and keep it moving.
I'm gay and my family has a hard time accepting this. I played by all the rules by
wearing dresses, acting feminine and going along with a role. Now thaiI'm out on
my own and have revealed my sexual preference, my family is going off on me left
and right. They are threatening to kick me out of the family, cursing out my partner
and making my life miserable. I'm out of high school and on my way to college and
could use their support. How do I choose?
You're fresh out of high school and don't know much about life, family values or
anything else. As a matter of fact. you don't know yourself and if you, read the
Bible, you'll learn about love, life. sex and relationships. Clear your mind and'eval-
uate your goals and life plans and determine if you want peace and success or drama
and negativity. Your choice will be clear as you gain experience and begin.to active-
ly participate in this thing called "Life."

holes to make it a fair fight. Before long, it was no con-
test. Woods made two eagles in his first seven holes to
turn a rally into a rout, matching the best final round of
his career with an 8-under 63 to win the Deutsche Bank
Championship on Monday and stretch his PGA Tour
winning streak to five tournaments.
It was the first time 'Woods has won five straight

Vijay Singh gave him seven titles in only 14 tourna-

is the schedule. Woods is taking next week off.
"It's nice when \ou get on a roll like this where
things are just happening." Woods said..
It all happened so quickly on Labor Day. where
thousands of fans crammed behind the ropes to witness
what was supposed to be a duel between Woods and
Singh. who started the final round with a three-shot
lead. Woods hit a towering 6-iron from 210 yards that
carried a swamp and plopped down 10.feet away from
the hole for eagle on the par-5 second. Then came a tee
shot to 15 feet for birdie on the next hole to give him a
share of the lead.

Woman Bitten By
Snake In Lowes
OCALA, Fla. A 42-year-old woman was rushed to a hospi-
tal after being bitten by a rattlesnake while shopping for plants at
a Lowe's Home Improvement store.
The customer was moving garden items around Tuesday
when she noticed a stinging feeling in her leg, officials said.
Medics discovered she had been bitten twice on the right shin,
the Ocala Star-Banner reported Wednesday.
Employees killed the 1-foot-long dusky pygmy rattlesnake
with a yard tool. The snake is one of six poisonous varieties
native to Florida.
Lowe's spokeswoman Karen Cobb said it wasn't clear where
the snake came from. She said store employees.scoured the area
but found no other snakes, and the company wasn't aware of any-
thing similar happening in Lowe's before.
"This is certainly an isolated situation," she said. "Garden
-centers are located outdoors, and they do contain live plants that
are watered frequently. We certainly monitor them for any
unwanted guests like the snake."
MOBILE, Ala. Mobile police have found a new use for
macadamia nuts that's not too tasty. Officers used chopped
macadamia nuts to resemble rocks of crack cocaine during a
drug sting Friday and Saturday on a street comer near downtown
that has been the subject of repeated complaints about illegal.
"Our operation was two-sided to attack both the supply side
and the demand side." Chief Phillip Garrett said.
As part of the sting, police searched. two houses on State
Street and arrested six people on charges of distribution of a con-
trol led substance. Police seized crack cocaine, Lortabs, and more
than S4.000 in cash at one location. Johnson said.
Then undercover officers posed as drug dealers at the comer
of State and Kennedy streets. As they made deals, marked cars
would swarm the person who made the buy. Once the street was
quiet again, another person would approach the undercover offi-
cer without being aware of what had happened earlier.
"These are people from mainly outside the neighborhood,"
Lt. DeWayne Hill said. "You'd be surprised how many people
come into the neighborhood like this to do their dirty work."
Police said the two-day crackdown resulted in a total of 21
arrests.The people caught buying fake crack were charged with a
misdemeanor, attempting to possess a controlled substance. Hill
said word of the arrests would ripple through the neighborhood
and have an impact 6n drug dealing.
"We want to make it as uncomfortable as possible for the
buyers to buy and the sellers to sell," he said.
