More Than 4,000 Black Prisoners Held Unlawfully.
(BlackNews.com) More than
4000 black men and other
U.S. citizens and foreign
nationals are being held in
federal prisons unlawfully
after the U.S. Congress orders
their release within the "law"
The United States
Congress, through Public Law
98-473, 98 Stat. 2032. Section
235(b)(3). October 12, 1984,
mandated the release. of all
"old la\\" federal prisoners,
those hose offenses were
committed prior to November
1, 1987, "within" their "appli-
cable parole guideline range,
The ameliorating of the old
law non-determinati e sen-
tences and conversion to deter-
minative sentences was done
by Congress to preserve the
"equal protection" of old law
prisoners compared to the new
law prisoners \ hose sentences
would all be determinative,
i.e., the out-date of every pri's-
oner would be known, both
those occurring before and
after November 1, 1987.
considered this fair because
each individual release date
would be determined by. the
specific facts of that case,
within the.broad guideline
range. Congress abolished the
parole commission's discretion
to go above the guideline
range, because of former arbi-
trary acts, abuse of discretion,
and incompetence (see Senate
Report98-225), making the
release date within the guide-
line range mandatory.
Congress abolished the United
Stated. Parole Commission,
but gave it a 5-\ear "grace
period" to close out its paper-
\work (see the "savings provi-
sion" of Public law 98-473,
Section 235(b)(1)); repealed
and annulled the Federal
Bureau of Prisoners statutory
jurisdictional authority to exe-
cute the former judgment and
commitment offers of all old
law prisoners issued by the
United States District Courts.
Therefore, all old la\% prison-
ers being held in federal
prison have been held without
any lawful jurisdictional
authority whatsoever for at
least the past 16 years, or
since October 12, 1989, when
the sayings provision expired.

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.ddctor 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-yea~-old
mother, as well, as her 14-.
year-old daughter, Kassmere.

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. Ndw 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
Son something in the yonder,
and his brow is so furrowed
you have to wonder what in

Hurricane Katrina and the tor-
rential flooding that ensued.
With his mother and 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 Intemet, 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
homee" sayNs Raynell, sullenly.
Raynell and My an are just
tno 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
\\ho 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
fdr the thousands of children
like Myan and Raynell who
need adults with the capacity
to meet their needs. CDF is

"There's Always Something
Happening On The First Coast"
Cruisin' Down The St. John's River
Just before the end of Summer, on a balmy Saturday, there
were some very blissfully cheerful FlaJills (spouses and significant
others of FlaJax members) on the First Coast! Dressed in their
most elegant summer white attire, they were elated with the FlaJax
members plans for the 2006 Annual Summer outing. Of course,
when we FlaJax learned -that FlaJax Edgar L. Mathis, Sr. was.
chairman of the event we each knew that the event would be any-
thiig except the usual. And of course with his very able commit-
tee members FlaJax Tommy Chandler, FlaJax Robert Porter,
FlaJax Henry Sellers, FlaJax Warner Singleton and FlaJax
Henry Speights, we were-not the least disappointed.
The Summer event began with cocktails for FlaJax, FlaJills
and their guest at the newly named and renovated Crown Plaza
Hotel on the south point riverfront. Following the cocktail hour
the Flajax members in their usual very 'dapper' manner escorted
their ladies from the hotel suite to the Jacksonville Princess Yacht
for a captivating and very romantic dinner while cruising down the
St. Johns River. Before embarking FlaJax Jerry Iszard was there
to do the honors of taking a photo of each couple, before setting
sail. These FlaJax think of everything!
After settling in on the yacht savoring the beautiful river nd the
clouded sky we sailed off into the night. As we' awaited the prime
rib dinner being served we listened to the beautiful recorded
sounds being played by the FlaJax's 'DJ' for the evening, commit-
tee member FlaJax Warner Singleton.
As we enjoyed our dinner, we were thrilled with the breathtak-
ing view of our riverfront here on the First Coast. Every place we
thought we knew somehow seemed different from the river. At any
rate, it-was awesome!
Of course, no FlaJa. event would be complete without dane-
ing. After dinner we took the dance floor- and we danced and
danced and then danced some more. Before we knew it we were
back at the launching dock.. "

members have got to rea llI get busy now if they hope to top this

4000 Prisoners continued from A-I
"windfall" of relief to America's criminals.
Congress, acquiescing to the pressure but not wanting to violate the constitutional prohibitions
against ex post facto laws and due process protections, passed Public Law 100-182, 101 Statue
1266, Section 2 (b) (2) and 26, effective December 7, 1987. This law is known as the "Sentencing
S Act of 1987". Section 2 is clearly titled "PROSPECTIVE APPLICATIONS OF SENTENCING
REFORM ACT." Section 26 clearly stated: "The amendments made by this Act shall apply with
respect to offenses committed after the enactment of this Act. Approved December 7, 1987" This
amendment reinstated the parole commission's discretion to go above the guideline range on pris-
oners still under its jurisdiction whose "offenses [were] committed after the enactment of this Act,
"i.e., military, District of Columbia, territorial and contract prisoners, whose offenses occurred
after December 7, 1987.
The five-year-grace period, and the saving provision of Public Law 98-473, Section 235
expired and ceased to exist as a matter of law on October 12, 1989, and with it the commission
ceased its lawful existence! However, they continued coming to work and acted as if nothing had
occurred. They continued to pass out 15-year reconsideration dates to U.S. citizens and foreign
nationals who were not under their jurisdiction! They continued to lobby congress for an "exten-
sion" of the life of the parole commission! They continued threading congress with exposure con-
cerning "high profile" and, so-called, "national security" prisoners, i.e., spies, etc.
Congress relented and passed Public Law 101-650, 104 Statute 5115, Section 316, December
1, 1990, titled "EXTENSION OF LIFE OF PAROLE COMMISSION." Under American law it's
S not possible to "extend" something that does not exist, first it must be recreated and then it may be
extended. Likewise, one cannot extend a loan that does not exist, or lend a car that does not exist.
Interestingly, Section 316 only purports to extend the life of the parole commission citing "section
235(b) of Public Law 98-473 as it relates to chapter 311 of title 18..."
The life or extension of the parole commission has nothing to do with the vested constitution-
al rights of citizens-to be released, i.e., even if the extension would have been lawful it would have
had no effect on any person whose offense was committed prior to December 7, 1987 or their right

Study Assesses Impact Of Economic Status
For Racial And Ethnic Minorities In. U.S.
WASHINGTON -- A new study with direct implications for the politics of immigration and
minority groups in this election year finds that improved socioeconomic status among racial and
ethnic minorities generally diminishes racial and ethnic group consciousness across a variety of
public policies. However, African Americans are more likely than Latinos and Asian Americans
to retain their racial group consciousness regardless of improvements in their economic circum-
stances because they are more likely to face discrimination in their everyday lives.
The study, authored by Dennis Chong and Dukhong Kim (both of Northwestern University in
Evanston, Ill.), is titled "The Experiences and Effects of Economic -Status Among Racial and
Ethnic Minorities" and appears in the August 2006 issue of the American Political Science
Review, a journal of the American Political Science Association (APSA). It is available online at
Using data from a national survey conducted by the Washington Post, Kaiser Family
Foundation and Harvard University in 2001, the authors explored how changes in the standard of
living of racial and ethnic minorities affected their support for group interests in public policy.
They also assessed whether the impact of improvements in economic status on policy preferences
depends on the extent to which higher status individuals perceive equal opportunity and experi-
They found that "vital differences between African Americans and other minority groups in
their experiences of economic status affect their tendency to embrace a racial or ethnic identity
and pursue group interests in public policy...African Americans place more emphasis on racial
considerations than Latinos or Asian Americans," primarily because they face greater socioeco-
nomic barriers than other minorities. Even when African Americans "achieve higher economic sta-
tus, they continue to experience discrimination and to evaluate their life prospects in racial terms."
Higher status Asian Americans and Latinos, by contrast, reduce their emphasis on race and eth-
nicity because are less likely to experience discrimination as their economic status improves.
The research findings also "suggest the general proposition that the effect of economic status
on the group consciousness of all minorities depends on the experiences accompanying that sta-
tus." Chong and Kim present evidence that "African Americans who have more positive experi-
ences of middle class status give less attention to race and show less support for race-based pub-
lic policies."' The authors also show that, "in general, for all minority individuals who perceive.
equal opportunity and experience social acceptance, an improved standard of living tends to lead
,to a weaker focus on race and ethnicity." This pattern is reflected in minority attitudes toward pub-
lic policies such as affirmative action in employment and education, as well as government pro-
grams to ensure equality in jobs, health care, schools and the administration of the law. "On the
other hand," the authors caution, "higher economic status fails to'diminish the salience of race and
ethnicity among those who encounter frequent discrimination."
The authors conclude by observing "An important lesson from this analysis is that support for
racial or ethnic group interests is strengthened by the failure of society to provide equality of
opportunity and weakened by favorable experiences of economic status... Structural barriers to
individual advancement in the United States have reinforced the tendency of each generation of
immigrants to build social and economic networks on the basis of their race and ethnicityin order
to amass the collective resources needed to succeed economically and politically."
Although Chong and Kim found similar tendencies among all minorities, there remain hints in
the data that support for group interests is more robust among African Americans. Compared to
higher status Latinos and Asian Americans, economically secure African Americans were more
likely to maintain support for government action to obtain radial equality in employment, educa-
tion, health care and law even when they evaluated socioeconomic conditions favorably. Racial
consciousness among African Americans may be sustained, according to Chong and Kim, despite
improvements in living standards because African American communities-more so than Latino
and Asian American communities- assign greater utihty to collecti- e action and contain institu-
tions such as churches and mass media that promote perceptions of a racial group interest.

resentative survey of 903 teens with drivers' licenses at 26 high schools. Promised' confidentiality, the teens filled out the
160-question surveys during homeroom or study hall.
Boys were more likely than girls to report driving under the influence. But teens whose parents set consequences for
breaking the law while driving were less likely to report DUI and other unsafe driving behaviors.
Not surprisingly, teens say they drive less safely when they're with friends than when they have a parent or guardian in
The survey found that:The biggest driving distraction for teens is text messaging via cell phone. Half of teens say they
speed more than 5 miles per hour over the speed limit when driving alone. Forty two. percent of teens say they talk on the
cell phone when driving alone. Eighty four percent of teens say they toy with the radio when driving alone.
Teens see their parents as the safest drivers. Yet they say their friends influence their driving more than their parents do.
Teens aren't interested in attending advanced driving school although a third of teens say they'd attend if it saved
them money on car insurance.

says the survey has an error margin of 3.3 percent.

"business," for the kids, it's also a chance to be away from home and semi-independent.

Kids Want It Customized
(ARA) Gen Y is quickly becoming known as the Customization Generation. Their cell phones are programmed with customized ringtones,
their MP3 players are stocked with customized playlists and their blogs are custom-designed for self-expression.
Meet Bob and Mary Jo. Bob is a student athlete. Simple, fast and easy is his mantra, because he's always on.the go between school and prac-
tice. Mary Jo is an overachiever: she's an honors stu-
dent, president of the student council and editor of the '
school newspaper. Her multiple commitments keep her ;
busy, so she has to use her time efficiently. ,
When it comes to school and classroom tools, cus- "
tomization is the key to productivity. Finding an orga-
nizational system that fits a student's style improves the
likelihood of use and often results in better perform- .. .
ance. '-...=. : .-! '
So how do Bob and Mary Jo choose their school, 1A
supplies? Like all of today's teens and tweens, they're
looking for products- they can customize to meet their.
needs with enough style and fashion to express them-
"We've seen customization as a growing trend in
our classroom research," explains Brian Effer,
MeadWestvaco marketing communications manager. i ;
"Students each have their own unique way they use 1 '-
products. And increasingly, we've seen that there is a
demand for school supplies that allow students to cus- #
tomize them to meet their organizational needs." :' r
This research has resulted in the development of ,
products that are ideal for teens who want to express" '
their individual style and their organizational savvy.
Mary Jo's best bet would be a tool like the Five Star
Flex Hybrid NoteBinder. Featuring the storage capacity of a binder and the ability to flip the front cover over and lay flat like a notebook, Five Star
Flex gives students the freedom to add what they need and take out what they don't. Paper, handouts, pockets and dividers can be arranged to their
preference, making note taking and filing a cinch.
On-the-go students like Bob customize their supplies by drawing doodles and jotting to-do lists on the covers of their notebooks, folders and
binders. For those looking for customization without commitment, rewriteable supplies such as Mead Zwipes-are ideal. Featuring a unique plastic
surface, Zwipes products allow students to jot down "permanent" notes using a special Zwipes marker. Once they wiant to remove their work, they
simply use the unique marker system to unlock the ink and wipe it away.
Choosing the perfect school supplies can get kids more than a polished image and superior organization. Now, the more supplies they purchase
the more students can get the things they 'really want music, games and clothes. The national launch of Mead Money Madness.- the first-ever

Teen heartthrob and

Sammie is back on track
after a five year hiatus
from the music busi-
ness. At age twelve, he
exploded on the scene
with the number one hit
"' Like It. Howxever.
he took. time off to
enjoy a normal adoles-
cence and complete
high school without the
distraction and the
demands of the profes-

His fans missed him but

kicking' new video and
single, "You Should Be
My Girl, from his long
awaited self-titled soph-
omore CD set to be
released October 3 on
Dallas Austin's Rowdy

is receiving major spins
at radio, MTV and BET.
Sammie recently com-
pleted the "Pantene Pro

the Russ Parr "Back To

The new album
sounds great and will
easily place Sammie
back at the top of the

How are the fans
receiXvin his nex\ single?
"So far so good. the fans
are receiving it pretty
well," Samnnie says.
How is our teen idol
holding up with all of the
traveling and one-
nighters? The answer to
that is a' io-brainer for
Sanmie. He quips, "I'm
young, so I'm like the
energizer battery, I keep
going and going." He
then turns serious and
continues, "I'm tired, but
I get my rest to make

Sammie's answer dis-
plays total confidence.
"Great singing, a lot of

Toronto International Film Festival
In the pantheon of film festivals,
Sundance and Cannes often steal
newspaper headlines, but everyone
in the film industry knows that the
Toronto International Film Festival
is the highest-quality film festival
in the world. Excellent films. The
most revered collection of direc-

TIFF's devotion to diversity is
manifested in its long-held respect
and appreciation for African her-

stars Derek Luke as South African
freedom fighter Patrick Chamusso
who, during apartheid, was one of
the African National Congress'
most heroic militants. Luke's stal-
wart performance and Phillip
Noyce's astute direction make this
socially conscious film an inspira-
tion. The legendary Chamusso
attended the film's premiere and
received a standing ovation; he and
the audience wept openly. Through
his ordeal as a hunted freedom fight-
er and tortured political prisoner
Chamusso focused on one principle:
"Forgiveness." And for Derek Luke

When The Levees .Broke: A

I had a friend that was lonely and unhappy, so I decided to
help her. I asked her to be my roommate and introduced her
to my crowd. She later told our mutual friends about my
personal business and she became best friends with them.
They told lies about me around campus, my grades deterio-
rated, and I lost my friends. I have wanted to get back at her
for backstabbing me. How do I repair a ruined reputation
and deal with these vicious two-faced people?
Totally Ruined On-Line Reader
Consider yourself lucky that your so-called friends have been revealed as wolves.
These weren't your friends to begin with and you shouldn't let them see you stress.
Hold your head high, get a life and find a new set of friends with high values and
morals. The two-faced people are beneath you and you should separate yourself.
Get a tutor to help pull your grades up, and stick with people that have common
interests. Stay positive, smile and keep it moving.
In your September 6, 2006 response to Miranda you sidestepped the issue of being
gay and the family mistreatment. All sin is unrighteousness! It makes no difference
as to whether or not the sin is a lie, stealing, or being-a homosexual. God destroyed
Sodom and Gomorrah for the sin of homosexuality. Her family should love her in
spite of her sin, but hate the sin. You gave very blunt responses to the others in that
issue, but you were not as firm with Miranda.
T.L.S. On-Line Reader
Miranda is a confused teen with no life experience and there's nothing firmer than
telling her to read the Bible if she's confused about her sexual preferences. True her
family should support her but she's now grown and leading her own life complete
with mistakes, pitfalls and drama.. Again, there was nothing better than referring
Miranda to the Bible, which is the tool I often refer to as Basic Instructions Before

My girlfriend is sending mixed signals about our relationship. At times, she makes
me feel as if I'm the only one for her and other times she makes me feel as if she
doesn't want'me. ,As long as I'm spending money and things go her way she's
happy. When things aren't rosy or I have an issue or need attention, she acts funny.
I'm beginning to feel like she's using me but I don't know how to approach her.
How do I ask where I stand in, this relationship? .
Wayne Altus, OK
You're being used and have allow ed yourself to become a financial sponsor. If you
can't pull the money away and still get the girl, you have your answer. She doesn't
give a damn about you and her emotions are tied to your money and what she can
get out of you.' You can make an effort and let her know you're scaling back on the
spending and ask to have your needs met.' If she agrees to work on this, then stick
with it. If not, pack your bags and exit stage left.

SEPTEMBER 23, 2006
EARTH IS ONE COUNTRY
By Ester Davis
UPI Religion & Spirituality
How did you remember 9/11?
Are you sharing your faith?
And learning about another faith?
K' :" The Foundation for Pluralism covered two double
^^ headers on their agenda for Unity .Day USA, in
S remembrance of 9/11.Unity Day USA was born to
express that each one of the 297,018,658 of us are part of the mosaic that is America.
Peace and prosperity for every American is their visions. In order to achieve that,
the need is to remain connected to one another, come together as one nation under
God, with liberty and justice for all.
Come together is one of those meaningless buzz words used by every other speak-
er about anything, everything and nothing. It is abused and misused. But the
Foundation for Pluralism uses the statement and carries a 'big stick' of politicians
and faiths to seal and see the vision. The 2006 theme was Co-Existence and
Harmony. Impressively seated on the lengthy dias was the Honorable Mayors of
five(5)Texas cities, one Councilperson from Carrolltofi, a former FBI Chief and one
of the oldest and largest civic organization of our times, a chapter of The Lions
On the other side of the dias was the clergy of twelve(12)faiths. Each clergy submit-
ted a prayer. Respective members of that faith were requested to stand by the stage
and join the prayer leader upon their turn. Faiths represented were the African
Yoruba, Bahai, Buddhist, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism,
Wicca, Zoroastrianism and American Native. Wicca was the only one I was unfa-
One by one the politicians joined in with their religion. Now. I have a questioner for
you: How many of the aforementioned faiths are you familiar with? Areherthere any
.that should be added? If so, you can contact lNike rfoundationforpluralism.com.
Mike adds that pluralism includes Atheism, Just remember though that Atheism is
a non-prophet organization. Whatever your belief the point here is respect and tran-
quilitv within and with our neighbors.
What is Pluralism you might ask? Pluralism is an attitude of acceptance and
respecting every beautiful way people have come to worship the Divine, including
but not limited to
the other systems of belief. AsI touch the redial button in my brain everyreligion i
is recorded as 'the first and the chosen one.' Every religion is the 'only way', and
there are snow-top mountains of century old paperwork and documentation
archived to substantiate the credence of these beliefs. But the bare truth is that earth :
is one country and a higher power under any name. made it.
I was fascinated by the strength of The Foundation for Pluralism to connect elected
leaders and leaders of faith under one tent in large numbers. The evening ended with
the ever togetherness of food from the Texas Ranch Buffet, Wok of Fame, Halal
Chinese Restaurant. Fadi's Mediterranean Cuisine, Brick Oven, Kasbah Grille
Moroccan Cuisine and Afrah Restaurant & Pastries.

Man Plummets 50 Feet
To Grab Missing $20
Aries (March 21 -
April 19) An exasperating
week is coming
up for you as old
friends and family
get together and
plan the upcoming
Summertime vacations with
less than congenial agree-
ment! This is not a good
time to go on spending
sprees unless you need to
purchase necessities; bar-
gain hunting just came back
into style. The business
plans you have been work-
ing on show signs of becom-
ing a reality as someone
offers you financial backing.
Be sure to keep a controlling
interest as this is your train
and you know best h6w 'to
blow the whistle. Dreams
will take you to fantastic
places this week but it will
be a flight of fancy.
This week lucky num-
bers are: 4, 6, 12, 16, 22.
Taurus (April 20 -
May 21) The finances are
settled and all the
now all that is
left is the mov-
ig. Moving into your new.
home will take up most of
your week. Everyone is
ecstatic over the new place
so try to keep hold of 'a pos-
S sibly short temper so you -do
not spoil the :fun.
Remember, you only move
into your first home for the
first time, once. Try to be
sure everyone comes
through this with a lot of
happy memories they can
share in later years. Your
dreams are prophetic and
may contain a warning rele-
\'ant to the latter part of the
week. Meditate on them
until you are sr e you get it.
This ,week. lucky numbers
are: 8, 14. 16, 38. 44.
Gemini (May 21-
June 21) Apply
common.. sense to.
and you .will be
able to remove the stress that
is building up over your new
employment. Being straight

oly. l'vay to'go as 'the other
person can tell if you are
being completely, honest.
Don't be talked ou't of reach-
ing your goal when you are
so close to making your big
breakthrough. A child may
give you a few problems' but
nothing you can't handle
with love and tact. You will
have some fantastic dreams
so watch for them. Serial
dreams are rarely remem-
bered but you may get that
treat this week. This week
lucky numbers are: 6., 8. 18.
Cancer June 21- July
22) You have to put your
business first and that does
not always sit \vell with youl
as this week your compas-
sion and under-
.., sstanding will pre-
..1 vent others from
pami and depression when
you make a decision that
may not have their best
interests at heart. Rest
assured you are a great alter-
native to a power mad boss
who runs roughshod over
everyone in sight. Your
dreams serve to entertain
you this"week and lift your
spirits when you are feeling
low. A little quiet meditation
clears things up for you.
This week luck) numbers

Leo (July 23 August
," 22) Go on and get away this
week, you'll come back in
better shape and you may
even have new clients wait-
ing when you return. Try to
make time for vis-
iting some special
friends since your

them for a while they are
anxious to see and talk with
you. And, a short trip will
refresh your mind and your
energies this week. Dreams
will be vivid and have a
message that increases your
faith and belief by leaps and
bounds. A good Technicolor
dream week for you is in
store'so listen carefully to,
the messages. This week
lucky numbers are: 2, 10,
20, 22, 28,.
Virgo (August 23 -
-September 22)You are
somewhat, of a philosopher
and everyone loves to gather
round yout and listen. You
m can and do use
S some of this talent
.to help others as
they lose their
path in life. You would be
surprised ho\" someone with
an uplifting.spirit is so hard
to find. Beware of large ani-,
mals this week as they can
look veir deceptivee and be
more aggressive than they
appear at first. Dreanis this
Seek are for your entertaii-
ment and should be taken as'
such. An angel may btimp.
into yoil on the street and
you treat him well. This
week lucky numbers are: 30,
32. 36. 44. 50.
Libra September 23
th October 23, 2006-A
new position at work will
this \\eek and it
looks like you
could have the
clear path to filling it. An old
friend perks your interest
when you realize that this
person is feeling romantic
about you and, unlike the
someone else, truly likes
'ou,..' Don't be taken in by
someone this,. week, who-
does not understand you.
You have only oneattraction
for :this person' and. I'll give.
you' the three guesses, free.
Work is satisfying this week
as yout accomplish more in
less tune. Your dreams this
week may tend to be on the
vague side but a few things
may get through for you to
meditate on. This week
lucky numbers are: -. 18,
Scorpio (October 24
is your greatest strength and
you may be called
on to put it to use
,fi this week as you
mediator by your
friends and family.
Everything you do. you do
well and this is no excep-
tion. Ho\\ever, do not get
too invol ed in the personal
affairs of other people any
deeper than you have to. you
could end up being the 'bad
guy' in their minds if the
decisions did not go their
way. If you treat all
strangers \well you may be
treating with angels
unawares. Dreams are noth-
ing much this' week so try
meditation for problem solv-
ing. This week lucky ntun-
bers are: 4, 8, 26, 28, 34.
S a g i t t a r i u s
A new job or y;
position is com-
ing your way and
it 'foks like a good one to
latch onto. A friend needs a
sympathetic ear and yours is
the chosen one. Your advise
is as sound as you always
make it and you save your
friend from making a bad
mistake. An aggressive indi-
vidual is not a happy person
and you find this out this
week as you tread on the
wrong toes and get an amaz-
ing reaction. Children will
need your guidance so plan
to work with your local
youth groups. Dreams this
week will be vivid and will
possibly answer some ques-
tions that have had you puz-
zled. This week lucky num-
bers are:2, 20; 32, 36, 3.,

really don't want
to do so you let this person
down easy as you help him-

week will find you going on
a refurbishing spree either at
home or at the business
office: don't let those expen-
ditures get too far out of
hand. If you are not the boss
or the owner, use common
sense at work this week as.
you are highly creative but
the boss may not like your
approach to a particular proj-
ect he/she has outlined for
you to do their way. Your
dreams this \week 'will be

pay close attention to them.
They can even warn you if.

walking across the U.S. 41 bridge over the Manatee River when
a $20 bill blew out of his hand and flew over the rail.
He followed. And plummeted 50 feet into the river.

AKRON, Ohio A former postal worker who poured urine,
into .his co-workers' coffee must serve six months in a jail work-
release program. Thomas Shaheen. 50. of suburban Spnngfield
Township. also must pay $1.200 to the people he used to work
with to cover their cost of making a secret video of his role in
tainting the office coffee.
Shaheen stood and apologized to several postal workers in
Akron Mtuicipal Court \here he pleaded guilty on Monday to
two misdemeanor charges of tainting food.
"I don't know what became of me." said Shaheen, a postal
employee for 13 years fired from his job at a post office vehicle
maintenance faciiht in Akron. "I hope you find it in your hearts
someday to forgive me."
The training occurred over several months. When workers
realized what was going on, the) told supervisors and an inves-
tigation began. \hen nothing came of the probe, workers had a
video camera installed in the room \"here staffers made coffee:
Shaheen was videotaped on two occasions in July 2005 pour-
ing urine into a coffee pot in a break roon'.
He didn't offer a motive, but his lawyer, Paul Adamson, said
Shaheen had been frustrated about his work.
"\Ve can't believe Thomas would d even stoop to this level for
his own personal revenge." said Jene Jackson. who worked with
Shaheen. "He would sit in the same room with people and watch
them drink his sick little brew and think nothing of it."
