programs that have helped foster d
the steady increase in the appetite'
for gospel music.
For radio stations, there are
four categories based upon the
size of the market, Major-3 mil-
lion and above; Large 1-3 million, Ms. Deborah Maiden
Medium 500,000 to 1 million and Owner/CEO
Small, under 500,000. Based
upon WCGL's 2005 market impact, it is a 2006 nominee final-
The station's slogan is; WCGL, Where Christ Gets Lifted
and victory is in the word. It provides a variety of gospel
music, religious messages through the churches and talk radio
such as Sis. Dennis' book club. Aired also is IMPACT, which

Founded In April 1951 By Eric O. Simpson
First African American Inducted Into
The Florida Press Hall Of Fame
The NAACP Defense and Educational Fund
Marian Wright Edelman
President and Founder of the Children's Defense Fund
Recently, I had the
opportunity to attend a
very special event: the
NAACP Legal Defense
and Educational Fund,
Inc. (LDF)'s celebration
of the 20th anniversary of
its National Equal Justice
Award Dinner. LDF is
"America's legal counsel
on issues of race," and
uses the court system-
along with advocacy, edu-
cational outreach, and
address key needs in edu-
cation, voter protection,
and economic and crimi-
LDF was founded in
1940 under the leadership
of legendary civil rights
attorney and first Black
U.S. Supreme Court
Marshall. During the civil
rights movement, they
provided counsel for Dr.
King and many other
demonstrators. LDF was
originally founded to pro-
vide legal assistance to
poor Black Americans but
the cases they've fought
have helped ensure more
justice for all Americans.
Before and after their
landmark victory in
Brown v. Board of
Education, LDF won vic-
tory after victory in its
efforts to open up oppor-
tunity for all Americans,
ensure voter rights, chal-
lenge housing discrimina-
tion, ensure equal
This year's National
Equal Justice Awards
Dinner honored Time
Warner, Inc. Chairman
and CEO Richard Parsons
and PepsiCo. Inc.
Reinemund for their com-
mitment to equal opportu-
nity and diversity and
serving as role models for
other corporate leaders. In
his remarks, Parsons told
a moving story about his
grandfather, who had
been a deeply respected
groundskeeper on the
Rockefeller family estate
at Pocantico Hills. Dick
Parsons went to law
school and became coun-
sel to Nelson Rockefeller
and lived on that same
estate in a different role.
He reminded the audience
that he hadn't become a
CEO because he had more
intelligence and ability
than his grandfather, but,
thanks to LDF, he had
access to different oppor-
Many of us know
we've also come as far as
we have because of the
opportunities we've been
blessed to be able to seize
along the road. In so many
different ways LDF's
work helped clear our
paths and laid the ground-
work for ending legal
apartheid in America.
LDF gave me my first
job after law school. I had
no idea how I was going
to earn enough to live in
Mississippi, where I
wanted to practice after
graduating from law
school in 1963. LDF pro-
vided an incredible year
of training and then three
years of support through
the Earl Warren
Chambers and I received.
Mississippi in the civil
rights movement years
was the best place any
young lawyer could work
and inspired the
Children's Defense Fund.
It was clear to me in
Mississippi in 1965 that
winning the important
cases to desegregate
schools and public facili-
ties did not end our job as
lawyers -if our plaintiffs
were thrown out of their
houses and jobs, violently
attacked, and could not
get food and health care
for their children. The
need to address the sub-
stantive civil rights of all
human beings to the tools
of life and to break the
cycle of poverty through
children became the next
frontier-and so a few
years after leaving.
Mississippi to help pre-
pare for the Poor People's
Campaign, I founded
Today, LDF is still pro-
viding scholarships and
training programs for tal-
ented college and law
school students who are
ready and eager to make a
difference. We have come
a long way. As we look
around we know we still
have a long ways left to
go, too. We'll get there!
As we approach the 40th
year of Dr. King's and
Robert F. Kennedy's
deaths in 2008, people
who will not take no for
an answer when justice
and the lives of children
are at stake will make all
the difference in the
world. LDF's example
shows us what passion,
perseverance, and excel-
lence can accomplish. I'm
so grateful for all they do
and for the fine leadership
of Ted Shaw and his team
of great lawyers.

Clyburn Leads Southern Blacks' Ascent To Top Posts in Congress .,. .. ,*,
By DAVID ROGERS ti *m. **
WASHINGTON -- In this time of change in Congress, Rep. James Clyburn, a minister's son from South Carolina, takes
his place tomorrow as the House Majority Whip the No. 3 Democratic post and highest ever held by an African-American
from a Southern district.
The 66-year-old Mr. Clyburn, who was 25 before the Voting Rights Act was enacted, symbolizes the rise of a set of
Southern Black lawmakers, shaped by the region and with a distinctive approach to politics separate from that of Black lead-
ers representing urban Northern districts.

,. .' ~.*
ii"- I i
J-rhn ls, 6'. I
Miel Watt, 61,
Texas (Pl .neI
Georgia Rep. John Lewis, a sharecropper's son who won national fame in the civil rights movement, will be chairman
of a panel within the House tax-writing committee. Rep. Bennie Thompson, once a Mississippi alderman, becomes chairman
of the Homeland Security Committee. Rep. Mel Watt moves up in the Financial Services panel important to a Charlotte bank-
ing industry just miles from where he grew up in poverty in North Carolina.
"We have come from a part of the country where it was legal for people to treat people differently because of their
color," Mr. Thompson says. "In many instances you find a passion for making sure that our systems are fair and equitable. On
the other hand you find a greater interest in community."
Their often rural roots and the Black educational and religious institutions that sustained them through segregation still
influence their politics. "It's like the turtle on the fence post: he didn't get there by himself," says Rep. Sanford Bishop (D., Ga.)
"I come from a district that believes in God, country, work, family and guns, and not necessarily in that order. For rural Blacks,
a shotgun was just another tool on the farm and a way to protect you from the Klan."
Southern Black lawmakers also tend to be more conservative than their Northern counterparts on social issues.
Political necessity has required them to reach out to business and agricultural interests to gain White support. And growing up
under segregation put a premium on personal relationships, with both Blacks and Whites, that can make them adept at build-
ing coalitions in the new Congress.
"I fish in a lot of ponds." Mr. Clyburn says, emphasizing his willingness to work with different factions. "I'm basical-
ly a manager. I've been managing something since I was 24 years old."
In Congress, that has meant fostering ties to departing Speaker Dennis Hastert (R., Ill.), with whom Mr. Clyburn
worked on tax legislation in 2000 important to depressed rural areas. Even as he did so, Mr. Clyburn was confronting then-
Sen. Jesse Helms (R., N.C.) by persuading a reluctant President Clinton to make a recess appointment of an African-American
to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mr. Clyburn, one of 13 Black freshmen elected to the House in 1992 from the South, is a strong labor Democrat. But
he admires former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin for "sticking to his guns" in a recent standoff with party liberals; in 2003,
Mr. Clyburn himself broke with his party to support a ban on late-term abortions.
Mr. Clybur has built upon a set of extended family relationships from the region and across racial lines. "I Too Am
a Southerner" is the working title of a book he is writing about his life. He says racial injustice continues today in cases of
White individuals manipulating property values for .rural Black homeowners. But this is also a man who has served on the
board of a prominent South Carolina bank and maintains a friendship with a Washington oil lobbyist, whose White grandfa-
ther built a bowling alley for Blacks in Charleston in the '60s and then hired Mr. Clyburn to teach Black customers the game.
Segregation fostered its own competitiveness. "Your parents told you, you had to be 'twice as good' and that's simmer-
ing in all of us," says Elijah Rogers, a Clyburn friend from their years at South Carolina State, an historically Black college in
Orangeburg, S.C. "Still today we correct each other if there is a slip in grammar."
Biblical verses are spliced into conversation: "Whither thou goest, I will go," Mr. Clyburn says, invoking Ruth's pledge
to Naomi. After taking over the Democratic caucus chairmanship in the last Congress, Mr. Clyburn, an African Methodist
Episcopal churchgoer, insisted on beginning party meetings with a prayer: "I was always taught: You lead by precept and exam-
ple. .... I thought it would be sinful to lay out precepts if I were not going to be an example."
As Congress prepares to write a new farm bill this year, Mr. Clyburn plans to read a prayer for farm workers at an
event tomorrow. And amid the outcry for ethics standards, he served on a special panel that investigated his friend, former Rep.
Earl Hilliard, a Black Alabama Democrat who lost his seat after being reprimanded for misusing campaign funds in support of
private companies in which he or his family had an interest.
"It was one of the hardest things I ever had to do," says Mr. Clyburn, who remains friends with Mr. Hilliard. "I sat with
him, just as I'm sitting with you, and I told him I'm sorry, you screwed up, and this is the best I can do."
That record could help him as Democrats try to move their own rules changes this week to address ethics and lobby-
ing abuses. And on their agenda next week is a minimum-wage increase, a key issue for Mr. Clyburn's district, which includes
many of the poorest communities in South Carolina.
The decade-long freeze at $5.15 an hour has made it harder for low-wage workers to qualify for the child tax credit,
which was indexed to inflation in the same period. And he has little sympathy for Republican demands that Democrats must
bring their bill seeking a $2.10 hourly increase through committee and not directly to the floor.
"Sometimes it's good to be smart, sometimes it's good to be symbolic," he says. "I think we ought to bring that bill
straight to the floor. The old leadership refused to bring it to the floor and we're going to bring it."
Segregation's mark is clear in his protective reserve. "He is guarded.... Emotionally you never throw that off," said
Rep. Barney Frank (D., Mass.).
"I wasn't born this way," Mr. Clyburn says. "I taught myself to be as reserved as I am in order to survive."
As a boy, Mr. Clyburn dreamed of being in politics, despite warnings from older Blacks to keep his ambitions in check.
The civil-rights movement thrust him forward in college, when he was arrested several times for demonstrations. In an early
case, the late Rev. I. DeQuincey Newman, a mentor and South Carolina civil-rights activist, picked him to take the stand at the
trial after Mr. Clyburn and other Black students were arrested during an Orangeburg, S.C., demonstration.
It was common then for Southern newspapers to print the names of Black student protesters on the front page, invit-
ing retaliation against their families. Rev. Newman argued that in a White society the Clyburn family was safe from econom-
ic retribution: "Your daddy is a minister and he ain't preaching to no White people. Your mother is a beautician and she's fix-
ing no White folks' hair. You're independent of the system: Nobody gets fired. So you're it."
Mr. Clyburn says, "It was my parents. It was because of them 1 was picked out of the crowd. Wherever it is you are,
you don't get there on your own."
John West, an early progressive among South Carolina governors, tapped him to be the first Black staffer to a sitting
governor in modern times. Their friendship grew and Mr. Clyburn became the state's human rights commissioner soon after, a
post he kept for more than 17 years.
He twice failed in statewide races, but his efforts in South Carolina's Sixth District helped to oust a conservative
Democrat in the 1970s who had won until then by playing to White tobacco interests and ignoring the Black population. And
when lines were redrawn to create a majority Black district in the early '90s, Mr. Clyburn won a crowded primary without a

If you were unable to attend the luncheon, you missed a splendid performance. Yolanda King
was the show. She captivated the audience not only through her words but with her perform-
ahce demonstrating her acting talent by transforming herself, physically and spiritually into a
little girl experiencing racism and the newly freedom of not having to sit at the back of the bus.
She also transformed herself by performing as Rosa Parks whose action started the
Montgomery, Alabama boycott.
The program was hosted by Angela Spears of Channel 12. Alvin Brown, president and CEO
of the Willie Classic, thanked the audience and the sponsors for supporting the 4th Annual
Willie Gary/Martin Luther King luncheon.
The two student winners of the essay contest were wise beyond their years. They recited their
essays of what Dr. Martin Luther King life meant to them. Both essays are on the front page
of this week's Florida and Georgia Star Prep Rap section.
Mr. Willie Gary gave a stirring compassionate speech about how the lord sent specific peo-
ple to deliver specific messages. Mr. Gary could easily turn in his attorney card for a pulpit

suddenly pull out what appeared to be a 9mm semiautomatic handgun and shot him while he
was in the car and continued shooting as he staggered outside.
Even though the parents were unaware of problems between Charles and their daughter, it
was reported that the couple was experiencing problems. Both Miller and Jackson were found
in the front seat of a 1996 Buick behind the Miller's home with gunshot wounds to the head.

Parents' Healthier Habits Lead to Healthier Kids
We all know that a diet laden .,-
with fats and sugar coupled with little or,
no regular exercise can lead to major .
health problems like diabetes and heart
attacks in adults. But did you know that
the beginnings of heart disease the
buildup of plaque in arteries can also .
show up in kids with these same bad
health habits? V f
A scary thought. But the good
news is that this problem is solvable.
Parents simply need to change kids' diet
and exercise routines from harmful to
"We could probably eliminate 90
percent of the heart attacks if we'd make 'I
sure our kids were eating right and get-
ting enough exercise from the start,"
says Dr. Henry McGill, senior scientist emeritus at the Southwest Foundation
for Biomedical Research in San Antonio. Southwest Foundation for Biomedical
Research' is recognized for the quality of its basic research into the nature, caus-
es, prevention, treatments, and cures for diseases.
"What we've found through literally decades of study is that the begin-
ning of atherosclerosis (often called hardening of the arteries) can be detected
in children as young as 12 years old," says McGill. "They may be in their 40s
or 50s or 60s when they experience a heart attack, but the build-up of deposits
on the artery walls began many years earlier, when they were kids."
Since 1987, McGill and research scientists from 13 other institutions
across the country have been studying risk factors for adult coronary heart dis-
ease in a project called Pathobiological Determinants of Atherosclerosis in
Youth (PDAY). They collected tissue and data from about 3,000 young persons
15 through 34 years of age all of whom died of accidents, homicide, and sui-
cide and were autopsied in forensic laboratories and measured the atheroscle-
rosis in their arteries.
The PDAY results show conclusively that the risk factors for adult coro-
nary heart disease affect the progression of atherosclerosis beginning in the teen
years. The association is so strong and consistent that a causal relationship
appears highly likely.
These results indicate that prevention of adult coronary heart disease
should begin with control of risk factors beginning in adolescence, McGill said.
What can parents do?
Two common risk factors that parents can address, McGill said, are
smoking and obesity. Too many calories and not enough exercise lead to obesi-
ty, which has become an epidemic in many developed nations and is the most
powerful risk factor for diabetes. Diabetes leads to an array of health problems
that include heart attacks, blindness, and kidney failure.
"We're seeing more kids today with adult-type diabetes than we've ever
seen before. And, unfortunately, we still have about 20 percent of high school
students in the U.S. smoking," McGill said. "And there's absolutely nothing
good you can say about what smoking does to your body."
McGill emphasizes that the main things parents can do is set a good
example. "If you're a parent, don't smoke," he says. "Eat healthy. Exercise. If
you're eating a lot of junk food, smoking, and letting yourself become over-
weight, you're teaching your kids to do the same thing. But it doesn't cost a
thing to change those habits."

"I Have A Dream"
by Martin Luther King, Jr.
...I have a that one day this nation
will rise up and live out the true
meaning of its creed: "We hold these
truths to be self-evident: that all
men are created equal."
...I have a dream, that one day on
the red hills of Georgia the sons of
former slaves and the sons of former
slaveowners will be able to sit down
together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day
even the state of Mississippi,
a desert state, sweltering with the heat
of injustice and oppression, will be
transformed into an oasis of freedom
and justice. I have a dream that my
four children will one day live in a
nation where they will not be judged
by the color of their skin but by
the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
...Let freedom ring from every hill and
every molehill of Mississippi.
From every mountainside, let freedom
ring. When we let freedom ring,
when we let it ring from every village
and every hamlet, from every state
and every city, we will be able to
speed up that day when
all of GOD's children,
Black men and White men,
Jews and Gentiles,
Protestants and Catholics,
will be able to join hands and sing in the
words of the old Negro spiritual,
"Free at Last! Free at Last!
Thank GOD Almighty, we are
Free at Last!"

The History of Martin Luther King Day
Who originated the idea of a national holiday in honor of MLK?
It took 15 years to create the federal Martin Luther
King, Jr., holiday. Congressman John Conyers, Democrat
from Michigan, first introduced legislation for a commem-
orative holiday four days after King was assassinated in
1968. After the bill became stalled, petitions endorsing the
holiday containing six million names were submitted to
Conyers and Rep. Shirley Chisholm, Democrat of
New York, resubmitted King holiday legislation each sub-
sequent legislative session. Public pressure for the holiday mounted during the 1982
and 1983 civil rights marches in Washington.
Congress passed the holiday legislation in 1983, which was then signed into
law by President Ronald Reagan. A compromise moving the holiday from January 15,
King's birthday, which was considered too close to Christmas and New Year's, to the
third Monday in January helped overcome opposition to the law.
National Consensus on the Holiday
A number of states resisted celebrating the holiday. Some opponents said King '
did not deserve his own holiday-contending that the entire civil rights movement ,.
rather than one individual, however instrumental, should be honored. Several southern '' "'
states include celebrations for various Confederate generals on that day. Arizona voters"
approved the holiday in 1992 after a tourist boycott. In 1999, New Hampshire changed
the name of Civil Rights Day to Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Timeline
1968 Martin Luther King, Jr. assassinated
1973 Illinois is first state to adopt MLK Day as a state holiday.
1983 Congress passes, President Reagan signs, legislation creating Martin Luther .
King, Jr. Day

because of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day boycott.
1992 Arizona citizens vote to enact Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The Super Bowl is
held in Tempe, AZ in 1996.
1993 For the first time, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is held in some from sometimes
under different name, and not always as a paid state holiday in all fifty states. .
1999 New Hampshire becomes the last state to adopt Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as
a paid state holiday, replacing its optional Civil Rights Day.
2000 Utah becomes the last state to recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by name,
renaming its Human Rights Day state holiday.
South Carolina becomes the last state to make Martin Luther King, Jr. Day a
paid holiday for all state employees. Until now, employees could choose F i
between celebrating it or one of three confederate-related holidays. l w i

January 10, 2007 Quincy, MA The National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA) today launched a new "Sparky the Fire Dog" game to help children learn about
emergency preparedness. The game, "Look and Learn," is now available free online at
www.sparky.org. It stresses the importance of being prepared for an emergency by
teaching children about items that should be included in an emergency supplies kit.
Each year natural disasters disrupt the lives of hundreds of thousands of chil-
dren and their families. NFPA developed Risk Watch: Natural Disasters to help chil-
dren and their families deal with disasters before, during and after the event. Sparky's
new game is the latest addition to support this effort and is available by visiting NFPA's
Ash Properties Works With UNF to

Jacksonville, FL -

he will be restored along

students will start to
breathe new life into T-rex.
The weathered orange dinosaur had been part of
the former Goony Golf miniature golf course along
Beach Boulevard. After the course closed, Jacksonville-
based Ash Properties bought the site for a shopping cen-
When construction stated, Ash Properties was
deluged with more than ,
1,000 calls from around the .
country from people who
wanted the dinosaur or at
least wanted it saved. So
Ash Properties consulted
with UNF, and a senior-
level construction class will take on the assignment.
T-Rex should be fully restored by April 15, 2007
and continue to hold court over the shopping center.
Risk Watch Web site at http://www.riskwatch.org and
entering the "Kids Only" section of the site.
"Everyone runs the risk of experiencing a natural
disaster and that includes children," said Amy LeBeau,
NFPA's communications manager of public education.
"Sparky's new game is a great way for parents and teach-
ers to educate children about emergency preparedness
with a fun interactive lesson."
Players of Sparky's "Look and Learn" visit six
different fun and interactive scenes as they are tasked
with assisting Sparky by locating hidden items to com-
'plete his emergency supplies kit. During their search for
the hidden items, players travel through a Hideaway
Island, Campground, Safari, Haunted House, Underwater
Adventure and Prehistoric Park to locate things like flash-
lights, batteries, extra clothing, a whistle, canned food
and other items that are often necessities in an emergency.
After finding all of the emergency supplies in each sec-
tion of the game, children will be able to download and
print out an emergency supplies checklist that they can
use to make their own emergency supplies kit.
Sparky's "Look and Learn" game provides a fun
and safe learning experience for kids and there is no
advertising on the kids section of the site. The game is
most appropriate for children in kindergarten through
second grade, but may be of interest to all ages.
Sparky the Fire Dog, recognized the world over
for his efforts to educate children and adults about fire
prevention and life safety, has been the official spokesdog
for the NFPA since 1951. Sparky's award-winning Web
site gives kids a safe environment to learn about keeping
safe from fire and other hazards while at the same time,
having fun. Sparky and Sparky the Fire Dog are reg-
istered trademarks of NFPA.

BACKGROUND: The breakfast began in 1987 with
the goal of bringing the community together to demon-
strate brotherhood and racial harmony. At that time, the
celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday was
not observed officially in Jacksonville, and no public
buildings and few private businesses were closed to
honor the national holiday. While there were approxi-
mately 800 in attendance during the first breakfast, last
-year more than 2,000 people came to celebrate the life
and teachings of Dr. King.

I'm in a situation where my boyfriend thinks I'm stupid. He has
started spending a lot of time with one of his ex-girlfriends. -He
claims they were best friends before and after they began their
relationship. 1 can go along with that but he always goes to her .
house alone. 1 feel if everything was as innocent as he claims, l l. i,
then 1 should be invited to a few dinner dates, movies and
overnight DVD and popcorn sessions. Am 1 paranoid or should
I be more trusting? 'i J 1
Tanya Charlotte, NC
It's true that men can have females as best friends but the dynamic changes when sex enters
the picture. Your boyfriend is disrespecting you if he's going on dates with her too. There is
something going on if he's at her house overnight. This isn't normal for a man with a woman
at home. He's seeing his girlfriend directly in your face. You need to address this and seek a
solution so that your relationship is the priority and the friendship gets put in its place.
My new girlfriend is a great person, wonderful cook and a well-rounded lady. The only flaw
I have deals with her hygiene. I'm not used to a woman wearing her clothes two days in a
row, putting on the same socks and not bathing every day. 1 like her a lot but I find myself
being turned off when it comes to intimacy. I'm not the world's cleanest person but 1 have
some standards. How do I address this issue without hurting her feelings?
Anonymous On-Line Reader
You need to let your girlfriend know that you're not feeling the recycled dirt on her body
and her clothes. This makes no sense and as a grown woman, she shouldn't walk around like
Pig Pen from the Charlie Brown cartoon. There's no nice way around this issue other than
giving her a bar of soap. You must be direct and let her know you're having a hard time deal-
ing with this, tell her why and if she wants the relationship, she needs to change.
My neighbor broke her leg and I've been going back and forth helping her out and running
daily errands. Since I've been around her so much, I developed interest in her. She has a
boyfriend that doesn't treat her well and hasn't been there for her during this time. I've
stayed with her a few nights and done things like brush her hair, run her bath water and serve
her food. How do I let her know my feelings and let her know that I've fallen in love
and want to date her?
Anthony Lawton, OK
The first thing you need to address is the situation with her boyfriend. Inquire and find out
about this relationship, where they stand and how serious they are. Once you have those
answers and if they're in your favor, share your feelings and make your intentions known.
You must be careful because your neighbor may be sensitive and you don't want to appear
as if you're taking advantage of her. Again, get answers, share your feelings and keep it mov-

Sea to Shining Sea
By Ester Davis'
I was putting up some of my summer stuff last week,
and, up above my head in the middle room closet, nestled in
the back corner in the dark, was a blue container. OK, where
is the step ladder?
For about a decade, my sons and I had a serious love i? *
affair with earth and water and the lovely creatures that
graced our waters. We spent our family vacations in and '";, 'j
around the California shorelines. What made our vacations ".. i'
so adventurous was the fact that my spouse had six siblings
all up and down the wonderlands of the Pacific Ocean shores. This blue container was full
of about 400 old color slides in labeled 6-by-4-inch boxes.-I immediately opened the one
labeled "Big Sur." OK, where are my glasses?
Examining the diverse worlds of the American shores and beyond gives deeper
meaning to "Oh, beautiful, for spacious skies." And all of this beauty was created in six days?
God should have taken two days off.
I am truly a naturalist at heart. There is this slide of birds rising above the sea foam,
and instantly my mind is drawn to the chatter and squeal of those birds. It looks like I wrote
"birds everywhere" on the back of this slide. I have always been a scribblist, jotting down
key words that equal a sentence. Along the California coast giant kelp grows like new
money. Some 800 kinds of animals and plants call this home. Changing lanes oh the "rub-
bing beaches" of British Columbia jellyfish sparkle and gray whales play. Whales range the
world's oceans, but because of the abundance of food to and from the streams of the Frasier
River System, a large population of whales resides on avenues and boulevards near the
Johnstone Strait. The landscape creates its own spectacles.
When you get around the Gulf of Mexico, you enter the sandy islands, delta swamps
and giant coral gardens. Florida welcomes you with hot sands and the dramatic seashore
where weather is king. The wave energy is electrifying, because, depending on the time of
day and season, it can quickly and rudely put on a new look. At high tide, you can see a'net-
work of fish out of the water chilling. Miami Beach is possibly'still one of the most densely
populated resort areas in the world. I wonder what the crocodiles, reptiles and flamingos
think of their natural wealth that is increasingly being robbed.
Leapfrogging along the coast the horseshoe crab on a New Jersey shore deposits
and buries thousands of eggs. Weeks later, a new generation continues a saga of survival that
began some million years ago. Creatures of the deep court the waters of New England and
Canada. Researchers report that off the coast of Cape Cod whales show themselves often.
However, researchers do not think the ships are disturbing their neighborhoods. I just imag-
ine the intellectual whale has attempted to communicate to man that the inflow of pollutants,
oil spills, factory waste, grease and people watchers are devaluing its neighborhoods.
So, what do you think is the answer? How much nature have we, under the official
shield of progress, suppressed? Possibly John Sawhill of The Nature Conservancy said it
best: "In the end, our society will be defined not only by what we create, but by what we
refuse to destroy."
By: Tonyaa Weathersbee, BlackAmericaWeb.com
This past week I was on vacation. I was cruising the foam-streaked
sapphire waters of the southern Caribbean and trying to give my
If mind a much-needed rest from the hard-charging business of daily
But people like Gerald and Jan'ice Sargent of Indianapolis wouldn't
let that happen.
Jan'ice is a hairstylist. Gerald is a diesel machine operator for
International Navistar. As we waited in a sitting area of the ship, we talked about cruising
(they had been on numerous ones), and I had them chuckling about my challenges in learn-
ing how to scuba dive in just three days. Invariably though, the talk turned to politics. They
expressed disgust at the racial indifference shown toward the black victims of Hurricane
Katrina in New Orleans and at much of the way in which the country is being run nowadays.
But being on the cruise and being among people like the Sargents got my mind to
working even though it was supposed to be resting. That's because they reacquainted me with
something that is rarely glimpsed at in mainstream media.these days -- that something being
the growth of the black middle class. That's because when I saw them, as well as the waves
of black folks who must have made up about a third of the revelers on Royal Caribbean's
Adventure of the Seas cruise ship, I saw vast untapped political potential. And I saw a situa-
tion that needs to change.
True, the status of the black middle class is, in many ways, fragile. According to
researchers Melvin L. Oliver and Thorlas M. Shapiro in the groundbreaking book titled
"Black Wealth/White Wealth: A New Perspective on Racial Inequality," the black middle
class owns 15 cents for every dollar owned by the white middle class. And for black couples
like the Sargents to maintain a middle class standard of living, both of them usually have to
be working. That's not so for white couples.
There are other inequalities and some setbacks as well. But there's no mistaking that
in spite of it all, and especially since the post-civil rights movement years and the prosperous
times of the late 1990s, the black middle class has grown exponentially. It's seen in home
ownership. It's seen in cruising.
Where it's not seen -- or not seen enough -- is in our politics.
1 say this because these days, many of us seem to be at a crossroads when it comes
to who ought to represent us. Many black people -- and not just the young -- are disillusioned
with the Democrats, but feel'there is no where else to go. Others, sadly enough, are becom-
ing Republicans by trying to convince themselves that it's all right to allow the white people
who run that party to relegate them to invisibility and that, somehow, we have a stake in the
outcome if gays are banned from marrying.
There's a better way. But it's a way that we'll have to create. And we can do that.
The first way we can do that is to realize that if so many of us have money on hand
to cruise, we have money on hand which can collectively be used to change our state of polit-
ical subjugation. Collectively, we have money to form powerful black political action com-
mittees and foundations in much the way that the Cuban American National Foundation has
done. They are a huge reason why, in spite of four decades of an economic embargo that has
yet to topple Cuban president Fidel Castro, that failed policy still exists. They are a powerful
lobby that sees to it their interests are met, regardless of which party is in power.
What all this shows is while it is important for us to make our voices heard with our .
votes, it is also important to make our voices heard with our dollars. That way, we can cre-
ate more choices for ourselves and put ourselves in a position to not be taken for granted, or
be messed with.
That's why seeing all my black people enjoying a cruise made me think about the
political independence we can enjoy if we start paying for our own politics.

Do's and Don'ts for Helping Children in Taking Tests (Assessments)
William Jackson, Professor Edward Waters College, Edited by: Robin McAfee
FCAT (http://firn.edu/doe/sas/fcat.htm) is just around the corner; many Florida school
districts have started preparation for this state mandated assessment, which will be held in late
February and early March 2007. Like all assessments they can be stressful for many students
regardless of race, gender or grade level. Once enrolled in public schools students are bom-
barded with assessments. There is a great deal of pressure in schools for success on assess-
ments and the measuring of growth in the learning process by students that teachers are held
accountable for their student's development. Teacher's high expectations can contribute to a
student's success and stress levels, because their student's achievement also determines in
some cases their continued employment, extra pressure is contributed by the teacher (unin-
tentionally) to show that they are meeting or exceeding standards. Many parents do not real-
ize teachers are being held accountable for their child's learning by the No Child Left Behind
Assisting children to prepare for taking tests, here are suggestions. Many schools
impose standard based learning that is guided by the state standards of instruction such as the
Florida Sunshine State Standards (http://www.firn.edu/doe/menu/sss.htm) "Standards should
allow for clarity in what students should know....."(U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
2005). Parent's responsibility lies in preparing and working with their children in making sure
their children are equipped for learning every day. It is not the sole responsibility of the
teacher to make sure all children are prepared; parents have a major responsibility also. Check
with your child's teachers) and the schools guidance counselors) about the kinds of tests
your child will be taking during the school year, if there is a testing schedule get a copy and
post it at home, be sure that you and your child keep up to date with the dates that the test will
be given. Find out if the school has test taking workshops for students and parents, be sure to
attend and empower you and your child with information.
Don't be too anxious about your child's test scores. If you put too much emphasis on
test scores, this can upset a child and contribute to further testing anxiety. Do encourage your
child to always do their best and properly prepare for all tests. Praise them for the things they
do well. If they feel good about themselves, they will do.their best. Don't judge your child on
a single test score children have bad days too. Test scores are not ideal measures of how a
child can perform academically in all subjects. There are many other things that might influ-
ence a test score. For example, your child can be affected by the way he or she is feeling, the
atmosphere in the classroom, the attitude of their parents or teacher, if they had a restful night
of sleep, their relationship with family and friends. All these play a role in your child's aca-
demic development. There will always be some type of measurement in school, but it is up
the all of us to make sure our children are properly prepared to achieve success.
Parents should not be afraid to help their child practice for tests, you would be sur-
prised how this may bring you and your children closer together. View your child's teacher as
a support system, not as an adversary. Work together to benefit your child. Make sure your
child attends school regularly. The more effort and energy a child puts into learning, the more
likely he/she will do.well on tests. Provide books and magazines for your child to read at
home, establishing a home library leads to cognitive growth and maturity. By reading new
materials, a child will learn new words that might appear on a test. Ask your child's teacher
about a suggested outside reading list or get suggestions from the public library. Many
schools have a reading list that they support that develops literacy and comprehension skills
that will carry on into the next grade.
Because of the many disparities of minority children versus non-minority children
extra attention should be given to those in low performing schools. The suggestions listed
above are just the tip of the iceberg for children. The classroom teacher cannot do it all by
themselves, they need the continued support of parents, grandparents, and other family mem-
bers. Testing addresses knowledge the student has learned or gained from the classroom envi-
ronment, but their learning should not be limited to the traditional learning institution. The
American Library Association Presidential Committee on Information Literacy (1989) stated,
"to be information literate, a person must be able to recognize when information is needed
and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information. Challenge
children and hold them accountable, keep standards high." If we lower our standards for our
children we will be producing substandard workers, which creates a workforce of unmotivat-
ed and educationally deficient workers. Just getting by is not an option if you want to be suc-
cessful in life. Our children need all the support that we can provide. Throughout life they will
be tested in many ways so they need to be prepared to handle the pressures of success and not
meet with failure at any level."

Students Can Get Paid to Stop Crime in Schools
Wyllie Hodges discusses
Student Crime Stoppers
with Nassau County Sheriff .c
First Coast Crime
Stoppers is entering a
new venue to fight
crime: schools. t
across the First Coast
are participating in the
program that allows
students to tip police to
criminal activity anonymously.
On Wednesday school resource officers in Nassau County were
trained on how the program works, and how it will work in schools.
"A key thing, a big thing is guns in the schools, weapons in the
schools," said Wyllie Hodges, the executive director of First Coast Crime
Hodges says students can collect $500 for information that leads to
an arrest involving a gun.
Student Crime Stoppers is modeled after the international Crime
Stoppers program that is based on people being anonymous.
It will be a part of schools in Duval, Nassau, Clay, Baker, Bradford
and Union counties.
"They are there, they see things and they need to help us create a safe
climate for them to learn," said Yulee High school principal Diane Romon.
Amanda Peak is a senior at Yulee High. She says of being anony-
mous, "It is a lot easier. You will know that no one will find out."
First Coast Crime Stoppers is a partner of First Coast News. The
crime fighting number is 1-866-845-TIPS.
Crime Stoppers also offers rewards up to $1,000 for information
leading to an arrest.
FLORIDA PREPAID REUNITES WITH
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
The Florida'Prepaid College Board and the Florida Department of
Health (DOH) have reunited again this year to reach out to Florida fami-
lies about two important topics: saving for college and immunizations.
With the support of the DOH, the Florida Prepaid College Board
distributed enrollment materials statewide at Women, Infants and Children
(WIC) clinics, County Health Departments, Children's Medical Services
Centers and child care centers participating in DOH's Child Care Food
Program. In return, Florida Prepaid will help distribute DOH information
on immunizations to its member base of approximately 300,000 families.
We hope you can help us inform your readers/listeners/viewers about this
partnership and the upcoming deadline for families to lock in the cost of
ph. 9i -1., G 7 fx I-
their children's college tuition, local fees and dormitoiy housing at current
College Plan ends Wednesday, January 31, 2007.

(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) Your inde-
a mile wide as
begins, so you'll
want to be exploring your
options in various (and
maybe every) area. Just be
sensitive about how it
might come across. On
Wed. and Thur., it's impor-
tant to strive to be more
grounded. Count those
blessings and live in the
moment. Whether you're
looking for a partner of
some sort or just somebody
who 'gets it,' this weekend
is a good time to scout.
Talk to anyone and every-
one -- you never know. On
Sunday, your best bet is to
lay low and take it easy.
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) You're in a
mode as the
and it's a very
fruitful state of mind for
gaining a better under-
standing of yourself and
others. Deepening connec-
tions is more than possible
now. On Wed. and Thur.,
you're rock-solid -- the
kind of person that friends
turn to and workplaces
treasure. Moreover, plans
you make now are golden.
Things may seem weird
this weekend; will you let
it throw you off, or can you
adjust and enjoy it with a
sense of humor? And on
Sunday, you just might be
a little weird yourself. It's a

June 21st) It's not like you
to climb up on a

keep it that way
as the week begins. There's
a more interesting way to
Wednesday and Thursday,
a relationship -- work, pla-
tonic, romantic -- may be a
bit difficult. Think of it as
an opportunity to bring an
issue out of the closet and
deal with it at last. Both
networking and things that
feed your brain are favored
this weekend; if you can
combine the two (a profes-
sional seminar, maybe, or a
fabulous cultural event),
even better. On Sunday,
watch out for a minor mis-
(Cancer June 22nd
thru July 22nd) Expect a
coworkers or a
partner as the
week begins. You may
need to take care of some-
thing someone else 'said
they'd do. Wednesday and
Thursday promise positive
energy and improvements
across the board -- if you
keep those eyes and ears
open. Be responsive, and
be clear. This weekend,
get on the same page as a
pertinent party when it
comes to financial matters,
whether it's a big budget or
who's going to spring for
brunch. (Splitting the bill
may be best.) Sunday's
custom-made for dream-
ing the day away.
(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22)Things are heat-
ing up as the
week begins --
warm and cozy
stuff at home,
hot work opportunities,
even some sparks when it
comes to romance. That
fiery energy looks fabulous
on you! On Wednesday and
Thursday, be extra aware
of others' reactions. Their
body language, as well as
what they say, tells you
which way to go. The solu-
tion to a problem or the res-
olution to an interpersonal
issue may not be immedi-
ately apparent this week-
end, and it's probably not
the first one you come up
with. Look further to find
it. On Sunday, let your
intuition speak loud and
(Virgo August 23rd
thru September 22nd)
That itchy feel-
ing you have as
the week begins
may be work-
related rather than derma-
tological. You want adven-
ture; you've got responsi-
bilities. Well, you're good
at multitasking. And on
Wednesday and Thursday,
work might have some
very interesting fringe ben-
efits, including an impor-
tant interpersonal connec-
tion. Making a few shifts in
your routine this weekend
signals the universe that
you're open to something
new, so if you'd like a fresh
opportunity or two, just
mix it up! On Sunday,
some solo time sounds
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd)
Want a raise?
Got a certain
request? As the
week begins,, go on -- make
your best case, and ask
away. Be sure to get specific
about the benefits to the
other party for best results.
Positive responses are
favored now, so jump right
in. Beware of the blues on
Wed and Thur -- or indulge
in them, but only briefly. Do
what it takes to help yourself
feel good again and get your
head back in the present.
This weekend, on the other
hand, looks to be full of
sweet possibilities. Try
something new to get them
flowing. On Sunday you can
make great progress on an

thru November 21st)
could get the
better of your
best judgment as
the week begins. Take a sec-
ond (and third!) look prior
to leaping. On. Wed and
Thur, however, your self-
control is supreme -- you're
an excellent negotiator now,
whether it's business or per-
sonal. Even reaching an
understanding that involves
making a compromise feels
fantastic. This weekend
could find you reorganizing
your physical surroundings,
while doing the same with
the contents of your head or
heart. And speaking of
heart, Sunday could get

H Friendships are in
the stars as the
\\eek begins, and
) ou might even
find yourself with a new
admirer or two. You're
downright inspiring now,
so who can blame them?
On Wednesday and
Thursday, leave the credit
cards at home, make your
own lunch and find free
fun -- you're a great impro-
viser now, and your budget
will thank you. While oth-
ers might be discussing the
latest blockbuster this
weekend, you can find the
person in the room who
will delve into philosophi-
cal matters or jump onto
your latest, greatest idea.
Sunday, you just might
stay in your slippers all day
22nd thru January 19th)
Your hard work
might not seem
to be getting you
anywhere as the
week begins, but it's not like
you to give up. Hang in
there, baby. By Wednesday
and Thursday, you ought to
be sitting in a much prettier
position. Look for results
and recognition now,
whether at work, socially or
in the love department (or
even all three!). This week-
end, you may be considering
revamping a certain plan,
but unless you've got a crys-
tal ball, there are a few fac-
tors you can't foresee. Minor
adjustments are better than
radical ones. On Sunday, art
and culture feed your head
thru February 18th) Get
share your val-
ues as the week
begins. If work isn't the
place to find them, seek out
a social cause or arts hotspot
where you'll both fit in and
have your mind stimulated.
On Wed. and Thursday, your
energy may flag. Extinguish
the candle at one end (at
least), get some rest and
exercise and eat with your
health, foremost in mind.
You'll want to be in fine fet-
ter for this weekend, when
all sorts of excitement is in
the stars. Your unique out-
look sparks lots of interest -
- share it! On Sunday, be
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th) While
it may seem
itive, don't be
about work issues as the
week begins. Take a wait-
and-see, quietly observant
approach. On Wednesday
and Thursday, the cycle of
karma is flowing; the help
(and the love) you give
comes. right back around
(albeit maybe in a differ-
ent form). Your dreams
and your intellect are inte-
grated in some very inter-
esting ways this weekend.
Let your thoughts flow
while you share them with
a like-minded soul. On
Sunday, you've got all
sorts of energy. What will
you do with it?
AGGRAVATED ASSAULT AND BATTERY A Jacksonville police officer was
dispatched to the 4300 block of Sunbeam Rd., where 59 year old PB says he was
shot by RLO, a stranger wearing an FSU shirt and denim shorts. A 9mm semiauto-
matic firearm was seized, along with 9mm bullets and a canvass concealment hol-
ster. The gun was not reported stolen. PRB was shot just above his right buttock and
the bullet apparently lodged in his lower abdomen, just below his waistline. He told
Ofc. A.E.P. that as he drove into the apartment complex, a group of kids were block-
ing his way. He advised that he had to stop his car while they slowly got out of his
way. As he passed, he told the kids to stay out of the road. He then drove to his apart-
ment, parked his car and walked with his walking stick back to the office to make a
complaint. Once there he was describing what happened to witness #1, CN. At that
point, witness #2, A.L., the suspect's girlfriend, walked in and confronted PRB.:She
accused PRB of calling them the "N" word. An argument ensued and witness #2,
A.L. entered the office with a baseball bat. She heard what was being said and inter-
rupted the victim and accused him of calling all of them the "N" word. At that point,
the suspect then approached the front door to the office and demanded he get out of
his girlfriend's face. After a brief verbal altercation with the suspect, the victim
turned his attention back to witness #2, who continued yelling at him. Sometime
during the argument, the suspect shot the victim. At that time, witness #2 told the
suspect to get the gun and "get out of there." It was later learned that the victim, who
was transported to the hospital, had no life threatening injuries.
RLO was advised of his rights and he agreed to talk to the officer and main-
tained that he thought the victim was going to hit his girlfriend with his walking
stick. He said he was aiming the gun at the victim's feet, but when he fired it struck
him in his right buttock.
GRAND THEFT AND AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH DEADLY WEAPON
- On Saturday, Officer JR said he came in contact with victim TN while he was
working off duty at the hospital. The victim informed him that he was in the park-
ing lot of PPH Food Mart and was hanging outside of his car. He stated that the sus-
pect's girlfield was talking with one of the girls that was inside of the car when the
suspect approached inside and took the listed item. The victim saw this and con-
fronted the suspect about the jacket. The victim stated that he did not know that the
suspect had a knife and the next thing he knew he was being stabbed. The suspect
then fled the scene in an unknown direction in the listed car. Officer JR saw where
the victim,TN, had three stab wounds on his left shoulder.Witnesses informed
Officer JR that they was the victim approach the suspect and saw the suspect pull a
knife and started stabbing the victim. They saw the suspect get into the car and flee
in an unknown direction. Officer went to the food mart to see if he could gather
more information, but was unable to. Officer JR spoke with Emergency Room doc-
tor DC and he stated that the victim is stable and his injuries were not life threaten-
HOME / AUTOMOBILE VANDALIZED On Wednesday, an.officer was dis-
patched to the 5000 block of Andrew Robinson Dr., in reference to a dispute. Upon
arrival, he met the complaintant MS. G. She advised that while staying at her broth-
er's, TM, resident, her sister-in-law, MM, vandalized the residence and smashed the
windows of hier brother's vehicle. Further investigation revealed that according to
Ms. G, MM and TM are currently married and have been for 10 years. However, the
couple is currently separated, seeking a divorce, and MM no longer resides at the
residence. On this date, while inside the residence, Ms. G observed MM, along with
another unknown black female, smash the windows of the car and the front window
of the residence with a chair. Ms. G was not injured as a result of this incident, but

now he is the star! Kyle
Massey will debut his
new sitcom, "Cory In
The House, on Friday,
January 12, 2007 on the
Disney Channel. Check
your local listings. This
show is a spin-off of
the smash hit, "That's
So Raven, which was
one of the most popular
Disney shows ever.
Massey continues as
Cory Baxter along with
his dad Victor Baxter
played by Rondell
Sheridan. The Baxter's

Massey is a veteran
child actor, now teen,
who is .smoothly transi-
tioning to the next level
of his career. Having his

hard work and was the
next logical step for him

mom i.e., momager
Angel has burned the
midnight oil with her
Mike as well a sharp
team of writers, produc-
ers and directors.
Massey's big brother
Christopher is also an
actor and is currently on
Network Show "Zoe
101." How does he feel
about his new show?
Massey is all smiles,
"I'm very excited. It's
an honor that Disney
even considered me for
this show, so I am real
excited about it." What
is the difference was
between being a co-star
.on somebody else's
show and the star of his
own show? Massey
responds, "There is
more work. I'm on the
set working more than I
was on 'Raven.' Yes, it's
Off set, Massey is a
champion golfer having
won two amateur tour-
naments and he also
loves outdoor sports and
kicking it with his
friends. You may even
see him on stage as a
stand up comic in the
future. The possibilities
are endless for the young
talented Massey who is a
proud member of Rych

Many are saying this is a
redo of The Blackboard
Jungle, but it is based on a
real life school teacher
named Erin Gruwell and
her experiences at Wilson
High in Long Beach,
California. She created a
class project where the stu-
dents had to keep a journal
of their personal experi-
ences. Gruwell teaching
methods forged a bond
between Latino, African
American and Asian stu-
dents. The one sore point of
this movie was that they
used the World War II,
Jewish Holocaust as the
focal point to teach the stu-
dents about tolerance. As
horrible as that experience
was, it really had no rele-
vance to the African
American, Latino and Asian
experience with intolerance
in terms of giving students
of color something that they
could relate to personally.
Their examples should have
come from the African slave
Holocaust and the ongoing
Jim Crow era, the Latino
migrant worker struggles
and the Asian Cambodian
Holocaust of Pol Pot's
Khmer Rouge or the
Japanese interment camps in
the U.S. during World War
II. These examples would
have hit closer to home.
This is the problem when
white Hollywood writers tell
stories for people of color.
They always slant it from the
European view point with
the European always being
the hero. On one hand, a
writer can only write from
his/her own cultural experi-
ence. They can not accurate-
ly tell somebody else's story.
This is why the script should
have been co-written or
heavily advised by African
American, Latino and Asian
writers. The script is a clas-
sic example of the lack of
diversity in Hollywood
behind the camera. The film
did show the blatant racism
in the U.S. public school
system that insures the stu-
dents of color won't learn.
The lack of school books
and not teaching the basics
i.e., reading writing and
math plus taking away the
music programs and now
even physical education, are
clear examples of why our
inner cities are in the mess
they are in today. Despite the
heavy European hero slant
and focus, Hilary Duff is
very believable and her stu-
dent supporting cast is good
and deserves a decent show-
ing at the box office.
