Crime Seems To Be
Theme For Week
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -
After a Day of Prayer, many
community projects and
increased police control, the
growing crime rate in
Jacksonville almost went to a
stand still and citizens began
to feel a little at ease.
However, the number of inci-
dents this week has many
wondering what changed.
Many guns have been taken
off the streets in exchange for
money or jobs; those who
have committed criminal acts
are "laying low" because
they are being pointed out by
several groups those who
want the money, those who
want to see a "crime free"
community and those who
want to just see a change.

On Wednesday, Dixon
discovered his 2007 Silver
Chevrolet Impala had been
stolen earlier in the day so he
had to get a rental vehicle.
Prior to being able to make a
police report, he received a
telephone call that his new
car was seen on Boulevard.
Dixon reported to the offi-
cers that he became very
angry and placed his AK-47
rifle into the trunk of his
rental car. He then left his
home on Cesary Boulevard
and drove to 19th Street W.

November begins a sea-
son of celebrations for most
Americans, and many of the
holidays we'll celebrate
over the next few months
center around traditional
foods and special meals. For
most families, Thanksgiving
especially means having
tables and stomachs filled to
overflowing. But some
Americans won't have the
privilege of complaining
about "too much" food at
Thanksgiving or any. other
time this year.
Harvest says in 2004, 38.2
million people lived in food-
insecure households, includ-
ing 13.9 million children,
and the number of
Americans and households
who are food insecure and.
hungry is rising. For many

CDF's New York office
is- especially focused on
helping spread the word
about federal Food
Programs and making sure
people participate in the
ones for which the\ are eli-
gible. The food stamp pro-
gram is the cornerstone of
the federal food assistance
programs. .A the nation's
largest nutrition program, it
is the first line of defense
against hunger. More than'
25 million people receive
. food stamps throughout the'
country, and more working
families and immigrants
than ever before may quali-
fy. But not everyone, who
needs help is receiving these
benefits. In New York City
alone, more than 1 million
residents participate in the
food stamp. program, but
another 500,000 are eligible
Qther programs also can
help and often target hungry
children. The Special.
Program for Women,
Infants, and Children, or
WIC, is a nutrition program
for low-income families that

ensures that children up to
their fifth birthday continue.

free and has no imrnigiration

infants under age one, and
children under age fite \\ho

dance, punctuality, and
behavior. Schools across the
country can serve breakfast;
since 2003, New York City's
public school breakfast pro-
gram has been free to all stu-
dents, regardless of family
income. For many students,
school lunch may be the
only solid meal of the day
and the national school
lunch program provides
reimbursement for lunches
served to children in public,
parochial, and private
schools. All students are eli-
gible, regardless of income,
residency, or citizenship sta-
tus. The New York City
Department of Education is
constantly improving taste
and nutritional quality to
encourage more students to
participate in these pro-
grams like adding vegetable
and fruit salad bars and deli
bars where students create
their own sandwiches.
Hunger does not stop
when school ends in June.
So help is also available for
children when the 're not in
school. The Summer Food

the best kept secrets in

Finally, eligible children in

grarms for snacks and sup-
All of these programs are
key threads in our nation's
safety net to help keep chil-
dren from going hungry. But
so many children and fami-
lies are still falling through
the cracks. If all eligible
families knew about and
participated in all available
food programs. they would
have more.money left over
each month to pay 'for criti-
cal things like rent; utilities,
clothing, and other essen-
tials. More outreach :and
increased enrollment could
help close the gaps in the
safety net and allo\ more
families to celebrate the
blessing of being able to sit

Planning in advance for a funeral
is growing in popularity. While the
idea of planning for this inevitable and
most unwanted event may not feel
right to some, it is anticipated that in
the future advance funeral planning
will be a normal part of ones financial
planning along with planning for col-
lege and retirement.
In a 1999 survey by the American
Association of Retired Persons, one in
five Americans age 50 and older have
experienced funeral arranging and/or
advance planning. Twenty-nine per-
cent of those arranging for a funeral
found some details to have been
already planned and paid for. The
AARP has also stated that more and
more Americans are entering into "pre-
need agreements" to purchase funeral
goods and services before death. In a
1998 survey, AARP found thirty-two
percent of those surveyed to have paid
in advance for some or all of their
funeral and/or burial expenses. 'I
Planning in advance is much
more than a money issue. Planning
starts off with information gathering
and organizing, which relieves sur-
vivors the task of searching for birth
certificates, military papers, social
security numbers, cemetery property
deeds and more. The next step is to
review the choices and options for
services and put the selections down
on paper. A casket and other merchan-
dise can be selected, or survivors can
be given the remaining choices to be
made when the need arises. Funding
for a funeral in advance is the last step,
and while optional, for many people
this is a wise step to take. If one is
unsure whether they want to fund a
funeral in advance, they can and
should go ahead to make plans with-

Neighborhood Matching Grant Program
Durkeeville Public Art Fire Hydrant Project
Continuing to update you, since one of my summer columns
featured the gala art exhibit of the City Kids Art Factory culmi-
nating the 2006 year, I want to tell you more about the summer
activities as a lead into the new project. The summer field trips
to the Ritz, JMOMA, MOSH, and ZOO helped the participants to
appreciate and understand the connection between culture, art,
museums, and real life. Their mural project with the Durkeeville
Historical Society allowed them insight to understand the syner-
gy between history, the role of artist and the function of art in dif-
ferent time periods. By the end of the program, the youth went
away with a better understanding of how visual art relates to the
communication of ideas; arts connection to culture and history;
an appreciation for critical analysis; and how it all can be applied
In addition, the children's improved self confidence was evi-
dent. This was most evident in their overall behavior while in the
studio, on field trips, and during the exhibition. Parent confidence
too was very high. You could sense their trust in the program
staff, and with their children. I'm told that during the summer
there was one volunteer student (Ms. Crystal Rodriquez, a jun-
ior at Stanton Preparatory High) who contributed more than 200
hours as community service.
The art education program and projects help reinforced liter-
acy. Each student was afforded many opportunities to use criti-
cal thinking skills to evaluate various art media, techniques, and
processes through maintaining their own journals during the ses-
And now, I just learned of a novel art project taking place in
the "Durkeeville area. An area that is dear to my heart as I was
born and spent my early years in the neighborhood where good
things happened to the children from this caring 'village!
City Kids Art Factory in collaborative partnership with the
Durkeeville residents, and the Durkeeville Historical Society will
create artistic designs of the Fire Hydrants that reflect the historic
movement of Jacksonville's Negro League Baseball players. The
fire hydrants will be transformed into public art that pays tribute
to the Jacksonville Red Caps Negro League baseball players.
*The project, based at the City Kids Art Factory studio located
at 8th & Myrtle Avenue, directly across from the James P. Small
Baseball Stadium and one block from the historic Durkeeville
Housing Project, one of the oldest public housing units in the city
will extend from Kings Road and Myrtle Avenue, north to the
Martin Luther King Expressway and Myrtle Avenue.
The program participants will be the youth and parents of
Durkeeville Housing, surrounding neighborhoods, surviving
Negro Leagues baseball players. Residents of the 'area will be
intricately involved by participating as a committee to select the
final images. Additionally there will collaboration with Negro
League baseball players to trace the significance of the Negro
Baseball League history during segregated times and with the
assistance of artists, help students to create an artistic expression
that will transform community fire hydrates into public ar reflec-
tive of the powerful stories and lessons learned during segregat-
This is a wonderful opportunity to enhance the quality of life
in the community and to also enhance the area by transforming
ecstatically mundane objects into objects that are, unique and
educational while at the same time encouraging Jacksonville res-
idents to familiarize themselves with a little known Jacksonville
legacy that will help to place their community in the national con-
text of one of the nation's favorite pastimes the game of base-
According to one of City Kids Art Factory's creators, Greg
Owens, "The sociological impact of the African American base-
ball era is immeasurable. During segregation, baseball was the
central sport world for African Americans. The sport provided
recreation, entertainment and infused the economic life of the
community, while creating local heroes. The Negro League was
organized into six different organizations, Negro National
League (first formed in 1920 and reformed in 1933 and lasted
until 1948), the Eastern Colored League (formed 1923), the
American Negro League, the East-West League, the Negro
Southern League, and the Negro American League (1937-
1950).One of over thirty communities to have a team,
Jacksonville was represented in the Negro Leagues by the Red
Caps, a team organized and owned by the Jacksonville Terminal
Company that operated the Jacksonville Terminal Station in the
1930s. Originally composed of porters that worked at the termi-
nal. the Red Caps. which utilized Durkee Field as their home
base, played teams from Atlanta, Macon, Tampa, Miami, and
Palm Beach. as well as other Negro League teams that had spring
training in the area or \were barnstorming the state. Iniiiall% asso-
ciated with the Southern Negro League in 1932, the Red Caps
joined the Negro American League in 1938 and soon thereafter
relocated to Cleveland to become the Bears (from 1939- 1940).
Some of the area players that were members of the Red Caps
were: Herbert "Herb" Barnhill (a catcher for the Red Caps
['38, '41-'42]), Herman Bell; Howard "Duke" Cleveland. (Red
Caps outfielder. '39, '41-'42), Felix "Chin" Evans (who played
for the Red Caps in 1938); James W. Everett, Sr.; and Willie
Trueheart "Red" Ferrell to name a few. The team dropped out
of the Negro American League in 1942. The former Red Caps
continued playing on various other Negro League teams."
Isn't this just wonderful and so very unique? It's a lovely tes-
tament that art can be everywhere!

Another positive impact is that local farm families are
supported economically. Through supporting small farms,
environmental stewardship helps maintain landscapes rich in

Bridging The Gap: Foster Children And The Faith-Based Community
Sg I Glenda A. Hatchett
S- biblical sayings,
"Train up a child in
the way he should
.. '... go and when he is
I..S ..''::- older, he shall not
.' depart from those
R ., ways" and "Honor
S. thy mother and

s,:''o, d Proverbs 22:6 and
^ S;! Exodus 20:12
y'. respectively, focus
on the importance of
child rearing and
Judge Glenda Hatchett tionships. The faith-
based community has always encouraged parents to instill
morals and values in their children so that they will hold to
those teachings as they become adults. In addition, children
are warned to show their parents honor and respect. These
scriptures have long served as important principles for par-
ents and children in the church.
Although these passages have been widely accepted by
many parents and children alike, they both assume that par-
ents are in the picture. Now, consider a situation where there
are no parents involved... who is there to raise up the child
and teach them the principles to live the way God desires
them to? Who is that child supposed to honor, when there is
no one there to respect? For more than 500,000 children
across the United States who are in the foster care system as
a result of abuse or neglect, they don't have to imagine this
because it is their reality.
For many years, the church has been a pillar in the com-
munity and stood at the forefront in tackling many issues that
plague communities across the country., From civil rights to
voting rights, the church has always taken a stand in chang-
ing statistics and making a difference. The church deemed
these issues important and has taken on the responsibility of
doing something about them. One issue however that has not
gotten as much attention is that of foster care and the welfare
of children who are placed in the system. It's not because it
is not as prevalent as other issues we face today because it
indeed is. Most of us know of a child who is living in a fos-
ter home or a group home, but we don't always see the effect
it has on not only the child involved, but also the overall
impact on the well-being of the community.
As with the other issues the church has addressed, I
encourage the faith-based community to get involved in the
issue of child welfare, and there are many ways to help.
First, it is important to build awareness. In addition to the
more than 500,000 children who are currently in the foster
care system, each year three million children are reported
abused and neglected in the United States that's nearly
9,000 children every single day. Nationally, 39 percent of
those children are African American a disproportionate rate
compared to the African-American U.S. population.
Once you are aware, you can then act. One way is to get
involved with the National Court Appointed Special
Advocate (CASA) Association. There are currently more
than 50,000 CASA volunteers,- everyday heroes who are
advocating in court on the behalf of abused and neglected
children to help ensure they grow up securely in permanent
and loving homes. There are over 940 local CASA or
Guardian ad Litem (GAL) programs throughout the country
so there is probably one near you. As a church, you can work
with a CASA/GAL program to host events or have a CASA
representative speak to your congregation about the issue of
foster care. As individual members in the church, you can
make a difference by becoming a CASA volunteer. Last
year, CASA volunteers helped over 225,000 children howev-
er, with more than 500,000 children in foster care, more than
half of these vulnerable children still don't have anyone to
help "train them in the way they should go."
I pray that the issue of foster care will be taken on by the
faith-based community so that the lives of children in com-
munities across the country can be changed and positively
impacted for generations. When a child has no permanent
Toni Morrison Puts Slam
Poetry In Louvre
PARIS The Louvre is inviting slam poets into its gilded
galleries to rap about paintings. If that seems unusual, it is.
With Toni Morrison as guest curator this month, the
6 museum is dreaming up new ways to look at art.
The Nobel laureate has helped the Louvre conceive a
series of lectures, readings, films, concerts, debates and slam
poetry that will continue through Nov. 29. All center on her
theme, "The Foreigner's Home," touching on national iden-
tity, exile and the idea of belonging.
The. slam artists come in Friday night, when the Louvre
is open late, and Morrison will also visit them in one of the
troubled suburbs that was hit by riots a year ago. The riots
exposed long-simmering anger about discrimination and
alienation among French teenagers of immigrant origin,
many of them of Muslim North African and African descent.
The "Beloved" author followed news of the riots as she
was preparing the conference series. The French situation
got her thinking of the African-American experience, and
how teenagers in France would put their feelings of exclu-
1 sion to use in art.
home, it is hard for them to have a permanent church home
as well. Just think, by standing up for a child in the foster
care system, not only can you help them find a church home
where they can grow and develop spiritually, but also help
them find a home to live where they can be safe, loved, nur-
tured and encouraged to become all that God has planned for
them to be.

NEW YORK -- Nielsen Media Research announced the
creation of the African American Advisory Council
(AAAC), which consists of 12 industry, community, and
business leaders. The Council will advise Nielsen on a range
of issues involving sampling of African Americans for tele-
vision audience measurement in the U.S. and will assist
Nielsen in reaching out to African American communities
and those within the industry. The first AAAC meeting was
held in September in New York.
"African Americans represent more than 13 million tel-
evision households in the U.S., representing approximately
12 percent of all U.S. television households," said Sara
Erichson, general manager of National Services at Nielsen
Media Research. "It is imperative that our insight into the
viewing habits of this community begins with culturally sen-
sitive recruitment strategies and outreach." "Regardless of
whether an African American resides in a rural or urban
community, it's important that all of their viewing habits are
accurately measured and reported," said Ken Smikle, presi-
dent of Target Market News and a newly appointed member
of the Council. "Nielsen has done a commendable job in
ensuring that the African American population is represent-
ed within its samples. The Council can advise Nielsen on
how to better reach African Americans and communicate a
message of inclusion to the public."
"There is an economic impact to understanding the
household characteristics and viewing trends of African
Americans," said Vic Bulluck, executive director of the
NAACP Hollywood Branch. "As a Council member, I hope
to provide insight that will help Nielsen understand why the
data the company provides should be able to meet the unique
needs of industry leaders that specifically target the African
American community, thus forging an even stronger rela-
tionship, with these prospec-

Man Offers Money To Minor To Watch Sex Performance
Reiko Henry, 18, worked at the River City Marketplace
Theatre as the assistant manager. According to records, he
approached a 15-year-old who was with a 17-year-old, and
asked them to have sex while he watched. He offered to pay
the teens $100 if they agreed to his request. They did not
agree and according to the teens, he then kicked them out of
The teens told management and the police department
what had happened. Management advised that Henry was
immediately fired. According to the investigator, they con-
tacted Henry by leaving a message on his voice mail. Henry
Sdid not return their call so a warrant was issued for his arrest,
charging him with lewd and lascivious conduct.
According to the report, Henry told the officers that the
Reiko Henry allegations were not true about his request but he did kick
Suspect them out of the theatre because they had made threats against
one of the employees.
Since the 18-year-old was on probation for a fraud charge, when the warrant was issued, his-
probation officer turned him over to the authorities. His bond has been set at $50,000.

There is no explanation as to why the teen was shot, except
that it was a "drive-by." He is still in critical but stable condi-

Female Ends Fight And Runs
Man Uses Bug Story
To Make Women Disrobe
WAUKESHA, Wis. An unknown man has been bugging women -- and police -- by using
an insect story to try to persuade women to disrobe. Police said the man, who remains at
large, has told female workers in at least seven businesses they have a tick on their clothes
and should remove clothing to find it, said Waukesha Police Sgt. John Konkol.
"We don't know what his potential gain is, if it's sexual gratification or he's trying to be
funny, but it's a serious crime," Konkol said.
Hali Frankowski was working recently at Sunset Tan in Waukesha when the man came in
and asked her to show him the tanning beds.
At one point the man told her she had a tick on her shirt, she said.

them over, and that's when I

Mental Health Resources Lacking
For Jacksonville Children
To culminate the stories above, one tries to understand why. The Children's Mental Health
Task Force, Children Medical Services, Managed Access to Child Health, University of Florida
Department of Pediatrics and the Duval Count) Health Department Institute for Health, Policy
and Evaluation,Research, presented their report "A Community-Wide Assets and Needs
Assessment of Children's Mental Health Services in Northeast Florida. The report shows a need
for increased adolescent mental health services, and relative.disparities.
"We have an inadequate and fractured system of care in Jacksonville that cannot adequately
respond to the mental health needs of our children," the report states. "The consequences of not-
responding to this crisis are cumulative and impact virtually all aspects of the health and well-
being of our children and our communities."

Video Games Meet Collector Cards
For Play Experience Like No Other
Two popular pastimes for kids, one with a
colorful 100-year history and the other a more
recent development, have joined forces to
-. offer one of the most enjoyable combinations
I i<;- -. since peanut butter and chocolate.
\ fWhether emblazoned with images of sports
stars or comic book characters, collectible
cards-which date back to tiny cloth-like pic-
".: tures produced in the late 19th century-have
been part of many a boy's recreation.
And who doesn't enjoy video games, which
have evolved from simplistic Pong to full-throttle fun with high-tech
Put the two together and you've got a gamer's fantasy.
Designed especially for "tweenage" boys 8-12, HyperScan is a
first-of-its-kind hybrid gaming system that lets players modify CD-ROM
games by scanning trading cards. The fighting game that comes with the
system uses Marvel's X-Men characters-based on the popular comic
book universe-which players scan into the game using special trading
cards. By collecting more cards, gamers can access additional charac-
ters and increase their defensive and offensive powers.
HyperScan is the first video game or toy to use radio frequency
identification technology, or RFID-similar to what you see at checkout
The system offers game play and content that bridges the gap in
gaming experiences for tweens who have graduated from traditional
plug-and-play games and are looking for new challenges. After each
round of play, gamers re-scan their cards and new powers are perma-
nently upgraded directly onto their card for use in future games and trad-
ing. For parents, HyperScan offers an alternative to mature and expen-
sive high-end game consoles.
HyperScan comes packaged with the system, X-Men game, six
collectible game cards and a controller designed for tween-sized hands.
Additional games, including Cartoon Networks' Ben 10 and Mattel's
Interstellar Wrestling League, are available at retailers nationwide.
A new game system combines two favorite pastimes-trading
cards and video games-into a fun and unique experience.

Turn Viewing into a Teachable Moment by
Page B-3/November 11, 2006
by Dr. Rosemarie Truglio
(NAPSA)-A new national study shows
how television has become a central focus of
many very young children's lives. Is that a good
thing or a bad thing? That depends on how par-
ents approach it. The following questions and
answers may help you decide:
Q: How much television do children
SA: According to the study released by the
Kaiser Family Foundation, in a typical day
'- ... more than eight in 10 children under the age of
6 use screen media, with those children aver-
: aging about two hours a day.
Q: How is TV used in most homes?
A: In many homes, electronic media are
used to help manage busy schedules, keep the peace and facilitate family rou-
tines such as eating, relaxing and falling asleep. TV can also be used to edu-
cate. Thirty-seven years ago, Sesame Workshop changed the history of televi-
sion with "Sesame Street," proving educational television can be a positive
learning tool for preschoolers.
Now, the nonprofit educational organization behind the show has devel-
oped a new line of DVDs called Sesame Beginnings. It's designed to encour-
age interaction between caregivers and children, as well as to provide ideas,
songs and activities that caregivers can use to promote "teachable moments."
Q. Why focus on infants and their caregivers?
A. As the recent study found, millions of children under the age of 2
are watching TV and videos. Sesame Workshop's own research has found that
"Sesame Street" videos were among those frequently viewed by children under
2. However, the content and curriculum of "Sesame Street" is designed for
ages 2-5. Therefore, the DVDs were created to provide video content for fami-
lies with younger children-with the goal to model and foster parent-child inter-
action during viewing and, most importantly, when the video is over.
Q. Are the DVDs designed to promote infant TV/video viewing?
A. No. The purpose of developing these DVDs is to offer parents-who
do choose to allow their children to watch TV/video-content that is developmen-
tally appropriate for children under 2 and that reinforces important research-
based principles that young children learn best through adult-child interaction.
Dr. Truglio is Vice President of Education & Research at Sesame Workshop.
DVDs for the under 2 set-In a typical day, studies show that more than
eight in 10 children under the age of 6 watch television.
American Teens Say They Want
Quality Time With Parents
(NAPSA)-A new national poll contradicts the conventional wis-
dom that teenagers want their parents to "just leave them alone."
Up to 67 percent of America's teens say they actually want to
spend more time with their parents. That's according to an online
survey of 1,250 adults and teens conducted by Opinion Research
Nearly half of the teens who responded said they would
be happier and better adjusted if they were able to spend more
time with their parents or other adult caregivers, such as grand- .. .*
parents, aunts, uncles or adults outside the family. ,
"While most make it through adolescence without
excessive stress, teenagers are at greater risk of school drop out,
arrest, drug use and some psychological disorders than other age groups," explains Dr. Holly
Kreider, a research associate at the Harvard Family Research Project at the Harvard Graduate
School of Education. "This is when they need engaged adults in their lives, to help separate
the good from the bad and to know that they have a chance for
a great future ahead of them."
The survey shows what some say is a clear disconnect
in a number of American families. While nearly a quarter of
teen respondents said their parents don't seem to have enough
time to spend with them, the majority of the parents surveyed
did not report having struggles with finding enough time to
spend with their kids. Dr. Kreider says this disconnect may be
the result of parents underestimating the amount of time their
kids want and need from adults.
But parents are faced with many demands for their
time, ranging from careers, to their own hobbies and activities,
to potentially caring for their own adult parents-all things that
can take away from the time they might otherwise spend with
their children. Single parents may have even less time for their
kids. So how can a parent achieve more quality time with a
Dr. Kreider, who has worked extensively on programs
that strengthen parent involvement and engagement, advises
parents to seek out local family resources. She has served as an
advisor to Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), an organ-
ization that she says has recognized and responded to the needs
of parents, with local assistance in strengthening families.
In particular, BGCA's Family P.L.U.S. (Parents
Leading, Uniting Serving) initiative, which is funded through
a $7 million grant from the Kimberly-Clark Corporation, pro-
vides family-strengthening activities and resources in local
communities to help families become more stable, cohesive
and connected. More information is available at
There's more good news for parents. Teens say it's the
simple things-like taking walks, sharing meals, playing games,
watching TV and talking more with each other-that they most
want to do more of with their parents. They also say-and par-
ents agree-that they'd like to spend more time as a family plan-
ning for the future.
"It may be surprising to many parents that teens don't
expect lavish getaways just for family time, but rather that they
would much rather have the quality time at home," said
Kreider. "This should open the doors for many parents who
were hesitant to ask their teen if they'd like to do something
around the house together or to go see a movie."

swimming, hiking, ride bikes, jump rope, play tag, kickball, catch, any activity
that involves motion.
* If it's raining outside, organize a treasure hunt in the house, one that
involves lots of running up and down stairs.
* Get kids interested in playing. sports. Take them to games, if possible.

of a pint-size basketballer with a big ambition: to rise to the top of the fast, grit-
ty, no-holds-barred world of high-stakes "Streetball."

"Triple-J," earns the respect of his friends when the mysterious sneakers make
him drive and dunk like the legendary Air Jordan. With hot streetball action and
comedy, it's a feel-good movie that can get kids moving.
* Be sure to keep an open mind if your daughter wants to play ice hockey
and your son prefers dance.
Children should do at least 30 minutes of exercise a day and 60 minutes
if they want to lose weight.
Regular exercise can help improve the quality of your children's .lives

blood pressure and diabetes.
"Like Mike 2: Streetball" is available in video stores everywhere.

talking to kids about not smoking," said Dr. Popkin.
"Although there are certainly things they can do (and
avoid) to make talks more effective, any time is a good
time to talk. Talks can happen on the way to school or a
movie. They can happen at mealtime or bedtime. The
important thing is that they happen-at an early age and
often enough for the message to stick."

and stroke. Canola oil contains the least cholesterol-raising saturated fats of all
the culinary oils-canola oil has half the saturated fat of olive oil.
Canola oil contains zero trans fats and is high in vitamin E. Its low
smoke point makes it a smart choice for sauteing and its mild flavor allows the
taste of other ingredients to shine through. The oil also works well in mari-

Starting A School Recycling Program

Recycling: It starts with you. homework (at least to old homework): They recycle it.
In fact, students have helped to contribute to a new record in paper recycling. In 2005,
51.5 percent of paper used in the U.S.-51.3 million tons-was recovered for recycling.
.3 To start a school recycling program, try these tips from the American Forest &
Paper Association (AF&PA) and Keep America Beautiful (KAB). The groups provide
training and a variety of resources to help educators teach students about recycling.
Together, they have helped to start school paper recycling programs across the U.S.
S.* Determine the amount and types of recyclable material in your school, and how
to collect and separate it. Enlist the support of school administrators and staff, and
appoint a coordinator and support team. Make sure to involve a student leader.
Hold a kickoff event to start your recycling program and involve as many students
as possible. Use the event to educate teachers, students and staff about the impor-.
tance of recycling. Hold contests and offer small incentives to keep students interested.
Work with a recycling company to gather materials and collect monthly results for
Students Making A Difference
School recycling programs can have big environmental and educational benefits.
Programs such as the AF&PA Recycling Awards and KAB outreach efforts can help.
The AF&PA Recycling Awards recognize outstanding individual, school, business
and community recycling efforts. KAB has raised awareness for the program, and also
has tools and resources available to help implement school recycling programs.
Join both organizations in supporting increased paper recovery efforts in your
school and community.
Who To Contact
If you want to start a recycling program:
* Visit www.paperrecycles.org for background information, statistics, interactive features, classroom resources and additional free materials.
* Visit www.kab.org to learn more about the nation's largest volunteer-based community action organization dedicated to litter and graffiti
prevention, beautification, waste minimization and community improvement.
School recycling programs help teach academic and life lessons.

Ask Deanna! is an advice column known for its fearless approach to reality-based
I think I'm in a relationship that is one-sided. In the beginning
my boyfriend and I shared a lot, communication was good and
we talked about our goals. Now we don't do anything recre-
ational unless I make a suggestion and pay for everything. I
keep trying to love him, support him and find out what's going
on. He won't respond but he won't be rude nor leave the house.
I'm very confused and these mixed signals make it worse. How
do I get through to him?
Going Crazy (Toledo, OH)
Dear Going Crazy:
Your boyfriend has simply fallen out of love with you. He thinks he's being nice and respectful
but he's really being dishonest with you. He has some pent up feelings and thoughts that will
only come out if you ask direct questions. You should ask him to share his feelings about the
relationship, find out where you stand and if he wants to be with you. Don't make assumptions
but rely on his direct response and actions and be willing to take the good with the bad.
My cousin is dating someone but they have an open relationship and have been known to date
other people. They still have a good relationship because they are upfront with everything. Now,
her boyfriend is interested in dating me on the side. I am also interested in him but I don't know
how my cousin will react. I know it wouldn't be anything serious because they often joke about
the people that try to come between them. Should I date him anyway?
Anonymous (Dallas, TX)
This is not the solution if you want something meaningful in a relationship complete with
respect and sincerity. You already know going in that you would have your cousin's leftovers
and everyone else's because he's a recreational dater. Then you have to ask yourself if this man
is worth the confusion with your cousin and family drama that will be sure to follow. Choose
someone else to date unless you purposely want to be second fiddle with no options.
I'm engaged to a good man and we love each other. He cheated on me and got someone preg-
nant and I stuck by his side from the beginning to the end. He has no plans of leaving me but
the child's mother doesn't understand that. She's using every trick she can think of but he won't
budge. We are getting married soon. Am I supposed to sit and watch or is there something I can
do to help him?
Committed (Hickory, NC)
It's good that you're standing by your man and even better that you're getting married. Your
future husband obviously told this woman things she wanted to hear because there's a baby and
she has hope. Your husband is the key to this puzzle. He needs to establish a paternity suit, make
child support decisions and a custody arrangement. You need to support him while he puts
things order and then go into a clean marriage with no baggage.

Quote: "If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that
whatever he does in any fathering situation has afifty percent chance of being right."
Here are some strategies to help dads who choose to visit their child's schoolhouse and check on their kids.
These are the result of my experiences and talking to other dads who make the sacrifice to visit their kids even
though they are not in the home.
A. Announce that you would like to visit the classroom or to eat lunch with your childrenn. Contact
the schools office and your child's teacher to find out their requirements for visiting the school. This may sound
intimidating, but the overall safety of all children is the schools responsibility. Don't make your first visit on
any special school day, just make it on a regular day so there will be no distractions.
B. Be humble and go with the flow, schools have a lot of scheduling with resources, reading and math
times, etc. during the day so if you get lost in the shuffle or confused just ask what is the routine for the day.
C. Cash is only needed for lunch, so don't think that you have to have a lot of money to eat. Most
adult lunches are $2.50 to $4.00 in elementary school, so call first to find out. If you can, and you feel gracious
buy pizza for lunch for the class on a Friday after you get to know them and the teacher. Work with the teacher
to maybe provide snacks for the kids as an incentive for good weekly performance. Your stock as a dad will go
D. Dress casual, a nice shirt and jeans works well. Everyone will know you are a dad so you do not
have to advertise it. Don't show off, make a fashion statement or flaunt, this makes you look bad and may
embarrass your child.
E. Even out your time if you have more than one child at the school, be prepared to go to lunch more
than once during the day. You have to be fair to all your children.
F. Find time to have fun. Smile and enjoy your day. A lot of students and teachers will smile at you,
make sure you smile back and be genuine. Don't be coy or fake.
GC Guide your day with your goals in mind. You are there for your child and you.
H. Honor your child, this is their school, say good things to them and about them. Making nice com-
ments on other kid's shoes, clothes and hair cuts (styles) this gets great brownie points.
I. Involvement in the classroom is optional at first. You can volunteer to help, but if you are unsure
don't worry about it until next time.
J. Jokes are definitely out. No jokes about the teacher, school, lunch.
K. Keep the conversation simple. Kids remember everything that you say, so do not make promises
you may have trouble keeping.
L. Laugh and enjoy the day, you may have to laugh at yourself.
M. "Mama drama" or "baby mama drama" should not be brought to school. If there are problems
sometimes you have to swallow your pride and make another trip to the school, so plan to be there when you
can enjoy and talk to your child without drama. Remember it takes a'Big man to back off. Be the Bigger Man
and a hero in your child's eyes.
N. Notice how your child acts, they act differently when home and school. Don't look surprised by
their actions sometimes, remember the "apple does not fall far from the tree."
O. Offer help when and if you can.
P. Promises can get you into trouble so make sure you word statements honestly and tactfully.
Q. Questions are good if you do not know what is going on. Don't assume anything because we know
what happens when we do that.
R. Resist the temptation to ridicule, demean, put down or make negative comments about other chil-
dren, teachers, and administrators. Remember you are there for one day; they are there for a year and have more
training.and experience than you. Not everything is as it appears in a school with various learning styles that
S. Seize the moment, this is a special time for your child.
T. Temptations will arise do not let into them.
U. Understand your role as a parent, to provide the best educational opportunities for your child. Work
with your child's teachers not against them.
V. Voice concerns only during parent teacher conferences and make sure you have all your facts cor-
W. Watch your surroundings, there.are a lot of little people walking around, be careful where you
X. Exercise caution when expressing your opinions. Don't set oursel f up to eat crow later.
Y. You are your child's first teacher so if there are deficiencies in areas find out how you can help the
teacher with your child.

A Child Is Calling For Help!
f ;4i0 Wireless AMBER Alerts Put Wireless Devices To Use
ii (NAPSA)-Statistics show that the first three hours after a child's abduction are most critical to recov-
Sery efforts. By combining the efforts of the wireless industry with the U.S. Department of Justice, the
National Center for Missing & Exploited Children(r) (NCMEC) and law enforcement agencies, the
Wireless AMBER Alerts(tm) initiative will be a catalyst for the more than 200 million wireless subscribers
to aid in the search for and recovery of an abducted child.
S I AMBER
According to NCMEC, more than 260 children have been recovered since the AMBER Alert program
Go to: www.wirelessamberalerts.org began in 1997. The program-an early warning system to find abducted children-started as a local effort in
the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, area and became a national initiative in 2003. AMBER stands for "America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response." The
program is a legacy to Amber Hagerman, a 9-year-old girl who was kidnapped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and was later found murdered.
An estimated 70 percent of Americans have wireless phones, and together they'can serve as a national network that assists families and the author-
ities in searching for abducted children. By signing up to receive Wireless AMBER Alerts, subscribers receive information about local Alerts, as well as
updates as the search progresses.
Subscribers capable of receiving text messages, and whose wireless carrier participates in the Wireless AMBER Alerts initiative, may opt in to receive
Alerts by registering at www.wirelessamberalerts.org or their wireless carrier's Web site. Users can designate up to five ZIP codes from which they'd like to
be alerted in the case of an AMBER Alert activation.
Public Service Advertising Campaign
The Advertising Council, in partnership with NCMEC, The Wireless Foundation and the U.S Department of Justice, launched a multimedia public serv-
ice advertising (PSA) campaign designed to raise awareness of Wireless AMBER Alerts and encourage all wireless subscribers to aid in the search for
abducted children. It is the first nationwide PSA campaign to address this technology and the ads launched on National Missing Children's Day (May 25th).
Wireless subscribers can now sign up to receive free AMBER Alerts via text messages.
Are You Prepared to Manage Your Child's Asthma?
(NAPSI)-Cold and flu season can be tough for
kids with asthma-and 'equally challenging for their
parents. These common respiratory infections can
make asthma worse, especially when parents are
not taking steps necessary to keep their child's
asthma well controlled.
A recent survey of parents with asthmatic chil-
dren, conducted by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA),
revealed that many parents think their child's asthma is under control, even
though the child has symptoms that prove otherwise. These signs of uncon-
trolled asthma include missed school days, hospitalization or emergency
room visits, use of rescue medication more than twice a week and waking up
at night more than once a week because of breathing problems or asthma
The right medication is vital to ensure that a child's asthma stays well
controlled throughout the year. One way to help manage everyday asthma
symptoms is the use of a daily maintenance medication that can help control
inflammation and may also prevent asthma attacks.
The survey also found that nearly 25 percent of parents haven't spo-
ken to their child's doctor about how to better control asthma during this crit-
ical time of the year. Experts suggest parents talk to their child's doctor
because having asthma can make it more difficult to fight a respiratory infec-
tion, such as a cold or the flu.
"Flu symptoms make asthma symptoms even worse," says Mike
Tringale, director of external affairs for AAFA. "Patients with asthma who get
the flu could end up in the emergency room. Many parents find this out the
hard way when their child gets sick."
Tringale recommends that parents take several steps to ensure their
child is ready to take on cold and flu season:
* Get a flu shot. AAFA's Flu Shot Finder, available at www.aafa.org, is a sim-
ple online zip-code search tool that links to a database of more than 25,000
flu clinic locations nationwide. The Flu Shot Finder returns a list of clinics,
dates, times, addresses and phone numbers to help consumers contact the
most convenient location and schedule a visit.
* Find the best asthma treatment. Work with the child's doctor to identify the
best treatment plan to ensure asthma is under control.
* Encourage hand washing. One of the basic preventive measures for avoid-
ing germs is consistent hand washing.
For more information about how to manage asthma during cold and
flu season, visit www.everydaykidz.com or www.aafa.org.
Children with asthma are at greater risk for illness during cold and flu

Man Says Bibles In
Pocket Stopped Bullet
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. A 54-year-old Orange Park man credits two small Bibles in his shirt
pocket for saving his life when they stopped a bullet.
The man, whose name was withheld because his attackers are still at large, told police that two
men who he didn't recognize ambushed him with a rifle as he carried bags of garbage to a trash bin.
The two men fled in opposite directions and have not been arrested.
Other than a red mark and a pain in his chest, he was not injured, The Florida Times-Union
The man said he was carrying two New Testament Bibles in his shirt pocket to give to friends.
Police took the Bibles as evidence.
Woman Accused Of
Punching Cop Over Sign
PISCATAWAY, N.J. A 69-year-old woman who was charged with assaulting a police officer
has turned around and filed a complaint against him for the incident, which stemmed from a polit-
ical sign she had put up.
The incident started last Wednesday when Marion Munk, a ceramics instructor at a communi-
ty college, said she noticed a handmade political sign she'd left on a street corer near her house
was knocked to the ground.
Munk said she stopped at the corer, where Public Service Electric & Gas Co. crews were
working, to find out why her sign, which was against incumbent Democrats, was down of the
ground but two signs in favor of the Democrats were up.
"I asked them, 'Who did this?'" Munk told The Star-Ledger of Newark for Saturday's newspa-
pers. "But they just wanted me out of the way."
Munk said Sgt. Wayne Vakulchik, an officer who was there directing traffic, grabbed the sign
from her, at which point she "pushed him out of the way."
In the police report of the incident, Vakulchik said Munk punched him in the chest and that the
sign was in the way of the PSE&G workers so they took it down, police said.
Munk, who was charged with disorderly conduct and assaulting a police officer, said she was
Handcuffed to a wall at police headquarters for more than four hours after her arrest. She's filed a
complaint with the police department.
Vakulchik "just yanked me around," Munk told the Home News Tribune of East Brunswick.
Capt. Richard Ivone of the Piscatway Police Department said an internal affairs investigation
would be conducted on Munk's complaint against Vakulchik, which cites excessive force. Ivone
said the utility workers at the scene witnessed the whole incident, "so we should get this wrapped
up pretty quickly."
Munk is scheduled to appear in court next Thursday.

Jones cont'd from D-1
The bigger the person the
less emphasis they place on
self! When asked if there was
any more room in his trophy
case for another award, con-
sidering that he has dozens of
every award in the book?
Jones congenially smiles and
says; "It's fantastic. Listen,
you never get tired of being
appreciated. Let's get real.
Especially during the time
when you are supposed to be
retiring. That's never going to
happen to me because I'm
never going to grow up,
Many of the rappers,
singers etc., from the hip hop
community revere Jones. Does
he ever mix with them? Jones
really lights up now and
exclaims, "Man, they are at
my house all the time, are you
kidding me? Usher stays at my
house as well as Jermaine,
Dallas, all of them. Jay-Z,
Pherrell, Will-i-am everybody,
I love those guys. They're beau-
tiful! They all want to grow and
I like that because I was lucky
that Benny Carter, Clark Terry
,and those people put me on
their shoulders, so it is very
absolute natural for me to do the
same with these kids! I just
adore them including the actors
- all of them.
Jones' long time collabora-
tors Norman Jewison, Norman
Lear, Bud Yorkin along with
radio mogul Kathy Hughes and
John Singleton were part of a
long list of distinguished guests
who saluted him. The out pour-
ing of love and accolades for
Jones throughout the night was
an amazing phenomenon to
If VOLi are an

"American Blackout" chronicles the recurring patterns of disenfranchise-
ment witnessed from 2000 to 2004 while following the story of Georgia
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who not only took an active role in
investigating these election debacles, but also found herself in the mid-
dle of one after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the
9-11 terrorist attacks.
Some call Cynthia McKinney a civil rights leader among the ranks of
Shirley Chisholm and Malcolm X. Others call her a conspiracy theorist
and a straight up looney. This documentary aims to seek out the truth
amongst the rumors.

California. Local and out
of town high school bands
will compete southern
style for a grand prize of
10,000 toward the winning
school's music program.
Honey voiced crooner and
Grammy Award winner
44aron Neville was named
Baldwin Piano Endorsee
and Performer. The
Baldwin Company, which
is merged with Gibson
Guitars, has been making-
fine pianos sincel862.
Neville's latest album,
Bring It Home The Soul
Classics was released in
September 2006, and has
won critical acclaim. It is
the highest charting debut
of his career
The Departed (Warner
Bros. PiLturei stars
Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt
Damon, Jack Nicholson,
Mark Wahlberg, Martin
Sheen,' Ruay Ilinftone,
Vera Farmriga and Alec
Baldwin. It is directed by
Martin Scorsese and pro-
duced by Brad Pitt, Brad
Grey and Graham King.
This is your typical mob
movie that takes place in
Boston with the
Massachusetts State Police
Department waging an all
out war to end the reign of
powerful mob boss Frank
Costello pla ed by our
main man "J-Nic" aka
Jack Nicholsoon. For the
record, let it be known that
R)ch NlcCain is the one
who first dubbed
Nicholson with his hip-
hop name "J-Nic,"
because he is such a fan!.
And J-Nic did not dis-
appoint with his usually,
sassy performance. The
plot centers around t\\o
cops who are after
Costello but don't know
each other. One, is a rook-
ie Billy Costigan
(DiCaprio), who was
kicked off of the force,
because his bad temper
caused too much trouble.
As a result of his being an
ex-cop, he is recruited by
his old boss and assigned
to infiltrate Costello's
inner circle and gain his
trust. The other is Colin
(Datnonl). \ ho is assigned
to go after Costello but he
is unaware that Costigan
is a fellow cop. The two
literally start gunning for
each other unaware that
they are on the same side.
Wahlberg turned in one of
his best performances yet
as the stress causing,
Dignam. Opposite his
'brash personality was a
mello\\ and likeable
Captain Queenan (Sheen).
Also in the likable mix
was Captian Ellerby
The movie didn't have
much action in terms of
car chases, explosions and
other routine exciting
things. It was pretty vio-
lent with a lot of folks get-
ting blown away. If you
like mob movies, this one
is not up there with The
Godfather, but it's OK!
