Why Did Undercover

Police Kill Teen?
Douglas Woods was 18-years-old and
worked as a helper to the program director
of Sable Palm Apartments. They called
him "D.J." and said he was a good person
and did not have a gun. Yet, on Saturday
night "DJ" was shot by an undercover
police office, J. Taylor.
Douglas Woods, 18 According.to the officer, he shot Woods
as he walked towards him, pleading to him
for mercy by asking him not to shoot him. But, according to
witness, Woods was not holding a gun. He was wearing gloves
and holding a cell phone that had just rung and continued to
ring as the officer shot him and as he laid on the ground dur-
ing his last living moment.
The Florida Star and several ministers of the community as
well as members of the NAACP knocked on doors and talked
with many residents of Sable Palm Apartments.

Black Coaches Make History in



Bears-Colts Super Bowl Matchup!


Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith make history by becoming the first African-American coaches to
reach pro football's biggest game appropriately played during Black History month; no less!


Two very good friends will be
spending next Sunday afternoon
together at the Super Bowl.
They won't be sharing chips and dip,
they will be coaching the Chicago Bears
and the Indianapolis Colts in the sports
fan's annual mega-event in Miami.
The big story to many people is just
that, the coaches. It will be the long
journey these two friends have made
just to get to the Super Bowl and the
many who have gone before them to
make their trip possible.
Lovie Smith became the first black
head coach to make it all the way to the
NFL's extravaganza Sunday when his
Chicago Bears wrapped up the NFC
championship. Just a little over four
hours later, his very good friend and
mentor, Tony Dungy, joined him when
his Indianapolis Colts locked up the
AFC title.
It would be news if it was the first
time in the Super Bowl's 41-year histo-
ry that a black head coach was on the
sidelines. The fact that both coaches
are African-Americans makes the
game a watershed event in the evolu-
tion of the NFL. No question that it's
an historic event, and no question that
it took too long to get here.
"It means a lot," Dungy said after a
38-34 victory over the New England
Patriots. "I'm very proud to represent
African-American coaches."
Lovie Smith said "I'll feel even bet-
ter to be the first black coach to hold


Head coaches Tony Dungy of the Indianapolis Colts (left) and Lovie Smith
of the Chicago Bears will face off in Miami's Super Bowl LXI next Sunday.


up the world championship trophy,"
after the Bears 39-14 win over the New
Orleans Saints.
So not one but two African-
American NFL head coaches will hold
the spotlight on the sporting world's
grandest stage, an outcome Smith
openly preferred. "Of course you
know where my loyalties lie .. .for the
Chicago Bears," Smith told reporters
after his team had locked down their
first trip to the Super Bowl since
Ditka's Bears in 1986. "But we have to
play someone and in my perfect world
of course, I would like to see the Colts
be that team," Smith added. "Tony
Dungy has done an awful lot for our
game. He hasn't had the opportunity to
coach in the Super Bowl, so I'm
pulling for him to do that."


NEWS BRIEFS
CNN Debunks False Report on
Barack Obama Schooling
Allegations that Sen. Barack Obama was educated in a
radical Muslim school known as a "madrassa" are not accu-
rate, according to CNN reporting.
Insight Magazine reported on its Web site last week that
associates of Sen. Hilary Clinton, D-New York, had
unearthed information that Obama attended a Muslim reli-
gious school known for teaching the most fundamentalist
form of Islam.
Obama lived in Indonesia as a child, from 1967 to 1971,
and has acknowledged attending a Muslim school, but an
aide said it was not a madrassa.
Insight attributed the information in its article to an
unnamed source.
But reporting by CNN in Jakarta, Indonesia and
Washington, 'D.C., shows the allegations that Obama
attended a madrassa to be false.

Gainesville's Rape Suspect Arrested
Reginald Phillips, has been arrested and charged for rap-
ing a University of Florida student on January
14. Police are still in\' stigtligii three other
reported rapes but has not said if Phillips is a
suspect.

Ex-Deputy Charged with 1964 Reginald Phillips
Slayings in Mississippi
Reputed Klansman James Ford Seale, 71 had been
reported dead but, the brother of one of the slain victims has
found him and he has been charged with kidnapping in con-
nection with the deaths of Charles E. Moore and Henry H.
Dee. Both 19-year-olds were beaten and dumped alive in the
Mississippi River.


Up until 1989, NFL's head coach-
ing jobs were off-limits to blacks.
Notwithstanding the fact that over
70% of the league's rosters were filled
with black players. Or that there were
many qualified black assistants. When
the time came to hire a new coach,
they were passed over, time and again.
Meanwhile, white head coaches
with less than stellar records got sec-
ond and sometimes third chances.
Dom Capers had a losing record with
the Carolina Panthers but was later
awarded the top job at Houston where
his record was 18-46. Joe Bugel went
20-44 with the Cardinals only to come
back as head coach at Oakland and go
4-12. It was the good-old boys' net-
work at work.

Elder Lee Harris


Elder Lee Harris, president of the IMA
(Ministerial Alliance) in cooperation with
the NAACP, SCLC and other.organiza-
tions, has asked all pastors in Jacksonville
and the surrounding area to join them with
their congregation to join this group of
concerned citizens on February 1, 2007 for
a mass demonstration on Stop the
Violence, Start the Love, March for Life


beginning at 9:30'a.m. at Central Baptist Church on the
corner of Jefferson and 3rd Street and march to Hemming
Plaza in front of city hall.
Elder Harris said that he believes that most of the pastors
in Jacksonville are concerned about all of the killing that has
plagued this city over the past three years and still counting.
He said he believes we can overcome this great and awesome
challenge but that we must first come together as God's cho-
sen. He stated that we must not look to the government, law
enforcement, or any other form of governmental agency to do
what God has charged the church with doing.

Dr. King's Youngest Daughter
Speaks Against Violence and
the Hip Hop Culture
Bernice King, speaking at North Carolina Central
University, was critical of the entertainment industry and hip-
hop culture saying she is afraid this generation doesn't see the
humiliation that results when values are low: "We must redi-
rect our energy and raise our standards. We are letting others
define us, image us and even brand us," she said.

In light of Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr.'s birthday cele-
bration, USA Today recently
asked me about the future of
the civil rights movement half
a century or so after it began. I
told the paper the role of the
National Urban League and
other civil rights groups was
evolving to cater to the
younger generation, which
possesses no memories of a
struggle born well before they
were.
Today's youth are looking
for something different than
their parents and grandparents.
This is evident in the giving
patterns of young minorities,
who are more likely to believe
that the key to greater equality
is greater access to financial
power than political power.
Instead of fighting for basic
rights guaranteed to
Americans, we are how fight-
ing for our economic future. .
In 1960, 20.1 percent of
Blacks graduated from high
school, which was a little less
than half the percentage of
Whites. Now, 81.1 percent
hold high-school degrees or
higher compared to 86 per-
cent of Whites. High school
dropout rates have fallen to
nearly one half of what they
were in 1975 27.3 percent to
15.1 percent in 2004, narrow-
ing the gap with Whites of 13.4
percentage points to three.
Since 1970, life expectancy
has risen 11.4 years, while that
of Whites has increased 7
years.
Despite educational


improvements, the gap in
salaries has actually widened
since 1960 when median
income of Blacks households
was roughly $14,000 less than
Whites in 2004 dollars. Now,
that difference has expanded to
$21,372 despite a nearly dou-
bling of household income.
When it comes to personal
wealth, Whites still outperform
Blacks 10 times over.
As I said in my keynote
address at our annual confer-
ence last July, the idea of
expanding the American
dream and table to everyone is
still relevant now as it was in
the 1960s. The fight to sit at
the lunch counter was an
important one. But what's the
use of winning the right to eat
at the lunch counter if you can-
not afford the meal? Now, the
civil right struggle is more a
fight of not only being able to
afford lunch but being able to
purchase the lunch counter.
For the African American
community to achieve eco-
nomic equality with Whites
and be competitive in the glob-
al marketplace, it is not enough
just to own property though
it's a very good start. We must
also be able to maintain and
secure that ownership for gen-
erations to come. And it is not
enough for our children to just
graduate high school. To
obtain the jobs of the future,
they will need to go to college
at the very least to acquire the
skills of the future and gain the
financial freedom we desire for
them.


Civil Rights Movement Must Continue to Evolve to
Keep Its Power

T"E FLORIDA STA


In 1967, at the llth
Convention of the Southern
Christian Leadership
Conference, Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. pondered the question,
"Where do we go from here?"
He also realized that the
movement he helped create
was an evolving entity. To
grow and flourish, it couldn't
just concentrate on securing
basic liberties for minorities. It
had to expand into something
bigger not only for the sake
of the future generations but
for the legacy of those who
gave their lives to the cause.
A decade after the birth of
the SCLC, Dr. King realized
that to keep the movement
alive he needed to began to
expand its scope to issues
standing in the way of greater
equality.
After all, it wasn't just
about guaranteeing basic
inalienable rights to African
Americans in the South even
back in the 1960s. It was
becoming less a struggle for
the rights of Blacks to vote and
operate freely within American
society. The inner-city ghettos
in northern cities emerged out
of poor economic conditions -
not necessarily out of political
circumstance. The riots of the
late 1960s occurred in areas
whose residents had the right
to vote for years and where the
first Blacks after
Reconstruction won election.
"We made our government
write new laws to alter some of
the cruelest injustices that
affected us. We made an indif-
ferent and unconcerned nation
rise from lethargy and subpoe-
naed its conscience to appear
before the judgment seat of
morality on the whole question
of civil rights. We gained man-

King said before the SCLC's
11th Convention. "But in spite
of a decade of significant
progress, the problem is far
from solved. The deep.rum-
bling of discontent in our cities
is indicative of the fact that the
plant of freedom has grown
only a bud and not yet a
flower."
Dr. King realized that eco-
nomic as well as political
empowerment would put the
African American community
on the track to full equality and
prosperity in the United States
by Blacks especially the poor
-- "the additional weapon of
cash" to combat discrimina-
tion. He foresaw a "host of
positive psychological effects"
that would result from wide-
spread economic security
among Blacks.
"The dignity of the individ-
ual will flourish when the deci-
sions concerning his life are in
his own hands, when he has
the assurance that his income
is stable and certain, and when
he knows that he has the
means to seek self-improve-
ment. Personal conflicts
between husband, wife, and
children will diminish when
the unjust measurement of
human worth on a scale of dol-
lars is eliminated," he told the
SCLC nearly 40 years ago.
When our youth is unaware
of what came before, we are
undermining their ability to
build upon the movement's
progress and create a brighter
future for future generations.
Our youth have our legacy
in their hands. We can either
engage them and emerge
stronger or ignore them and
relinquish our power.

Decided

"Toi everything there is a season
and a tine to every purpose under the
heaven. A time to be born, and a time
to die. "-Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.
No one wants to talk about death
and funerals. Too depressing.
Unfortunately, death is a fact of life
and there simply is no way to avoid it.
For indeed there is a "time to be born
and a time to die."
You may want a traditional funer-
al service with visitation and a member
of the clergy conducting services at a
church or a funeral home. Would you
want an open or closed casket? Maybe
you want a special friend to do the
eulogy or family members to read
scripture passages or poetry. Any
favorite hymns?
First. you should shop around and
talk to a few funeral directors. Yes, let
your fingers do the walking-comparing
prices for such things as casket,
embalming, ant the cost for profes-
sional services.


On The T. pr 01 Cc'rliihon,
Ri. Mi on*-,t.,p Jl.upph '.,htch
can include such things as prayer
cards, thank-you notes, and guest reg-
isters-they add up quickly. Many opt
for the funeral home in their neighbor-
hood for personalized services,
Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth burial, a
cemetery plot should be purchased: if
above ground, a mausoleum crypt. If
cremation is the choice, plan disposi-
tion of the ashes. Do you want them
.stored in a columbarium niche or
buried? Maybe you prefer to have your
ashes scattered?
An option some people take is to
donate organs and tissues to a medical
school. (Have a donor card and check
on requirements.)
If you would rather have a memo-
rial service, express that wish.

In Remembrance of the Dream-A Native
Daughter Honored


Dynamic! Gracious! Charming!
Accommodating! Genteel! Warm! At ease! Exciting!
Vibrant! Energetic! A commanding presence! Jovia!
Cool, Calm and Collected! Humble! Those are just
some of the words and phrases that best describe
native daughter Dr. Johnetta Betsch Cole who came
home last week. She was the recipient of the fifth
annual Ritz Chamber Society's In Remembrance of
the Dream Humanitarian Award. During the reception
preceding the concert and during the concert Dr. Cole
spoke of her gratitude in being honored in her home-
town of Jacksonville, Fla. Greeted by family, class-
mates, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority sisters, Links, Inc.
sisters from far and near and the United Way (Dr. Cole
in 2004 became the first African-American to serve as
Chair of the Board of United Way of America), we too
were grateful that our own native daughter, who is
internationally renowned, was glad to be home. Dr.
Cole or 'Sister Prez' as she is fondly called on the
campus of Bennett College for Women, where she is
president, was the ideal recipient of this year's
Humanitarian Award. "Dr. Cole's achievements
reflect the slow but steady progress in achieving the
dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. From Dr. Cole'
humanitarian contributions, to her founding of The
Johnetta B. Cole Global Diversity & Inclusion
Institute at Bennett College for Women, she has been
a great champion for progress", stated Cyrus M.
Jollivette, Ritz Chamber Music Society. You will
recall that our own Dr. Cole was the first African
American woman to serve as president of Spelman
College in Atlanta, GA. Being the descendant of the
founder of the Afro-American Life Insurance
Company she inherited a legacy of doing good work.
The concert featured the music of Felix
Mendelssohn, Jonathan Bailey Holland, Dimitri
Shostakovich, and Ludwig, Van Beethoven per-
formed by: Terrance Wilson-Piano; Kelly
Tompkins-Violin; Kenneth Law-Cello; Kyle
Lombard-Violin and Amadi Hummings-Viola. I
had not heard the Players perform in the Jacoby
Symphony Hall before. I must tell you this; the music
is. even more astounding in that setting. Bravo!

Inside Dr. King's Private Library
By Marisela Santana, Special to the NNPA from Wave Newspapers


SWhen people all
:over the world paused
last week toi reflect on
the legacy of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.,
they thought of his his-
toric "I Have A Dream"
speech. But "American
Morning" anchor
Soledad O'Brien, who
reported the five-part
"Words that Changed a
Nation" series airing
last week on CNN,
found that there was so
much more to talk
About.
SIn an agreement
reached last year with
Sthe King family,
O'Brien and CNN were
granted exclusive
access to the papers
from King's personal
library, of which some
10,000 pieces are
housed in an archive at
Shis alma mater,
Morehouse College in
SAtlanta.
When O'Brien first
" learned of the net-
Swork's plans for the
special, she was
, unaware that it would
allow her become one
: the very few people to
see up-close, and actu-
ally touch, King's per-
sonal notes with her
own hands. This inti-
: mate look at his per-
sonal philosophy and
theology which
Soften revealed King's


inner doubts and fears
- gave O'Brien
insight into his trans-
formation from a
preacher in
Montgomery, Ala. to
an international human
rights icon.
Handling material
this historically valu-
able also made her a
little nervous.
"I almost didn't
want to touch anything
... I was afraid to drop
one of his books,"
O'Brien said by tele-
phone from New York.
"I was pretty terrified
... to be holding this
piece of loose-leaf
paper in [my] hand
with his writings on it.
"You forget how rel-
evant [his] words are
even today, nearly 40
years after his death.
... When you read
someone's words, you
get insight, you see the
words crossed out, that
he decided weren't
strong enough, you can
see how his mind is
morphing, changing,
you sort of get a
glimpse inside his
mind, of someone who
is working not just for
himself, but for a
nation."
Obtaining access to
the papers was only
part of O'Brien's high-
ly personal series on


King; she also inter-
viewed several of the
civil rights leader's
closest confidants.
Paired with his writ-
ings, their insight, she
believes, can further
open the nation's eyes
to who King really was
and what he was think-
ing.
"It's definitely a his-
tory that I'm familiar
with, and most people
are,. in broad strokes,"
she said. "But when
you look closely, when
you open a book and
you see the words that
he [Dr. King] circled
and the lines that he
underlined, and what
he wrote in the margins
... you can follow the
movement as it was
growing and being
shaped ... it's fascinat-
ing to be able to con-
nect the dots."
The conversations
with King. intimates
proved revealing.
Former U.N.
Ambassador Andrew
Young, activist
Dorothy Cotton and
Rep. John Lewis (D-
Ga.) were among those
who participated,
revealing, for example,
that the world-chang-
ing "I Have A Dream"
speech was ad-libbed
at the last moment dur-
ing the March on


Washington, D.C. on
August 28, 1963
Although his papers
show that King had
indeed been develop-
ing the concept of his
"dream," they also
uncover a little-known
fact: that he had
worked on the famed
speech for hours and
hours under the title
"Normalcy, Never
Again."
"It was never called
'I Have a Dream' but
no one has ever really
known that," O'Brien
said. "We learn that in
the middle of the
speech, he suddenly
decides to ad-lib ...
that the one surviving
text of his 'I Have a
Dream' speech doesn't
have a word of 'I Have
a Dream' in it."
Of all of the on-
camera discussions
lined up for the series,
O'Brien says it was
Young who delivered
the most powerful
interview. "Here you
have a man who has
told this story thou-
sands of times, and
he's crying, and I'm
crying and the crew is
crying," she said. "I
interviewed him for
hours and at the end we
talked about the day
that Martin Luther
King Jr. was shot. He


told us that even
though he's done so
much over the last 40
years ... everything he
has done pales in com-
parison to his work
with Dr. King."
As personally touch-
ing as the experience
has been for O'Brien
- who will receive the
President's Award at
the NAACP Image
Award in March she
hopes her work can
help open eyes to
King's many dimen-
sions as a person.
"There was so much
more to him than that
speech," O'Brien said.
"Everybody who is
fighting for their coun-
try, for their rights,
they all know the 'I
Have A Dream' speech
- it's one of the rea-
sons people remember
it because it's just that
powerful and it defined
a movement but it
wasn't the culmination
of a movement at all. It
was the beginning of a
movement.
"It's easy to know
the history and forget
the words," she went
on. "In the big picture,
one forgets the sacri-
fices people made for
our rights, that people
literally died for those
rights, that are taken
for granted."
O'Brien also con-
firmed talk that CNN is
working on a related
special, yet to be writ-


ten but scheduled to air
during Black History
Month, that asks the
whether there will ever
be another civil rights
leader on par with
King. "I thought after
Katrina, that, someone
would emerge,"
O'Brien said. "We
thought there would be
an event that would
propel someone into a
leadership position like
that, just a moment in
time that would come,
but I don't think we
really saw that."
For now, O'Brien is
satisfied to have
played such a central
role in shedding new
light on King's work.
For the internationally
recognized television
personality, it seems
the project also elicited
some feelings of
humility.
"I'm one year older

Consequences
* Direct and indirect costs of youth violence (e.g., medical, lost productivity, quality of
life) exceed $158 billion every year (Children's Safety Network Economics & Data Analysis
Resource Center 2000).
* In a nationwide survey of high school. students, about 6% reported not going to
school on one or more days in the 30 days preceding the survey because they felt unsafe at
school or on their way to and from school (CDC 2004).
* In addition to causing injury and death, youth violence affects communities by
increasing the cost of health care, reducing productivity, decreasing property values, and dis-
rupting social services (Mercy et al. 2002).
Groups at Risk
* Among 10 to 24 year olds, homicide is the leading cause of death for African
Americans, the second leading cause of death for Hispanics, and the third leading cause of
death for American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Asian/Pacific Islanders (CDC 2006).
* Of the 5,570 homicides reported in 2003 among 10 to 24 year olds, 86% were males
and 14% were females (CDC 2005).
* Male students are more likely to be involved in a physical fight than female students
(41% vs. 25%; CDC 2004).
Risk Factors
Research on youth violence has increased our understanding of factors that make some pop-
ulations more vulnerable to victimization and perpetration. Many risk factors are the same, in
part, because of the overlap among victims and perpetrators of violence.
Risk factors increase the likelihood that a young person will become violent. However, risk
factors are not direct causes of youth violence; instead, risk factors contribute to youth vio-
lence (Mercy et al. 2002; DHHS 2001).

Susan G Komen For The Cure: New Look and Name
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- The organization formerly known as the Susan G. Komen
Breast Cancer Foundation is honoring its 25th anniversary with a new look and a new name
-- Susan G. Komen For The Cure.
Nancy G. Brinker started Susan G. Komen for the Cure in 1982 in Dallas, Texas in
honor of a promise she made to her sister, Sudan G. Komen,'who died from breast cancer at
age 36.
Though our promise to end breast cancer remains the same, we are marking our 25th
anniversary with a renewed passion that incorporates a new name and logo, a commitment to
invest another $1 billion in the next decade and initiatives designed to create a world without
breast cancer.
Susan G Komen for the Cure and our new pink ribbon icon pay homage to the inspi-
ration behind our legacy, serve as reminders that the lives of real women are at stake, define
Komen's position and infuse it with a sense of urgency and hope.
The "moving ribbon" in our new mark symbolizes the humanity in all that Komen does and
the energy and forward momentum we employ as we work to end breast cancer forever.
Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest and most progressive grassroots net-
work of survivors and activists working to end breast cancer forever. Komen for the Cure is
125 Affiliates strong, located in cities and communities across the U.S., Germany, Italy and

Security and Narcotics and Vice stated that
more than fifty investigators went door-to-
door of the 200-units in the complex in an
effort to get as much information as possible
from the residents.
Residents talked about the treatment they
received from members of the Jacksonville
Sheriff's Office. Many said they were
ordered to get back into their apartments and
were threaten with arrest and other meas-
ures.
On the issue of Woods intention to rob the
undercover officer, residents said that Taylor
had been gambling with tenants or people in
the area and that he was robbed last week by
someone after finishing the game. They
questioned why he returned to the complex
after being robbed.
A witness told The Florida Star and
Channel 4, that he counted five shots. He
also said that the officer was wired and the


police would have a record of the number
of shots as well as where the shots came
from. He said, none came from Woods.
Other witness said that Woods phone lit up
while he was on the ground and that the
telephone company would have records of
that since the police are saying that his
phone was in his pocket rather than in his
hand. The boy's phone was in his hand,
they said, and they believe that once the
officer realized that he was holding a phone
rather than a gun, he planted the gun on
him, and that is why they did not wish the
residents to stand around and watch them.
The mother of the girl that was with
Woods said that she will not allow anyone
to talk with her child without her presence.
She added, that her daughter saw what hap-
pened, that DJ did not have a gun. She said
her daughter is visibly shaken because of
this incident and she is praying that the
conclusion of the investigation will reveal
the "real" truth.

Black Coaches
Continued from A-I

Art Shell has the distinction of being the
first African-American head coach of the
modern NFL era. Shell served as the
Oakland Raiders offensive line coach from
1982 to 1988. He was hired as the team's
head coach in 1989, and remained until
1994 leaving the Raiders with a 54-38
record during his watch.
Dennis Green, the NFL's second black
head coach took over the Minnesota Vikings
in 1992 and moved on to the Arizona
Cardinals in 2004 before leaving the NFL
with a 108-83 record.
Eight black head coaches have guided
NFL clubs through a total of 51 seasons,
over half of which ended in trips to the play-
offs. Black coaches have brought their teams
to within one victory of the Super Bowl five
times but lost, including Shell in 1990,
Dennis Green with Minnesota in 1998 and
2000 and Dungy in 1999 with Tampa Bay
and 2003 with the Colts.
Tony Dungy has taken it a step further.
His record speaks for his performance 117-
62 overall but it is probably his persona


that history will credit most when it comes
to helping future black coaches. Dungy is
low-key, modest and unassuming in nature.
He has never been the type to grandstand
and pontificate about injustice. But he is
honest and speaks out about the league's
inequalities, and he has always known that
his successes on and off the field would go a
long way in opening doors for others. One
of those others would be Lovie Smith,
Dungy's protege in Tampa Bay.
When the Bears and Colts take the field
in Miami, aspiring black coaches who dream
of someday leading a team in the game-of-
games will see that the closed door of oppor-
tunity has been opened wider than ever
before. Men of color who have been held
back through implicit and explicit actions
and words, and have been told they weren't
good enough, will have two iconic role mod-
els as they fight for equal footing in the NFL
With every big victory, Dungy and Smith
remove another link from the chain of preju-
dice. Lovie Smith said before his game that
he hopes a day will come when the color of
a coach's skin is no longer an issue. That day
is not here yet but the efforts of Tony Dungy
and Lovie Smith have brought it much clos-
er.


City to Pay $5000 to Settle Atheists' Rally Lawsuit
Jacksonville will pay the New Jersey based American Atheists Inc. $5,000 in attorney
fees and avoid holding religious events in the future in the settlement of a lawsuit over the
Day of Faith Rally.
The Aug. 12 rally was in response to a spiraling murder rate and the July 26 shooting
death of 8-year-old Dreshawna Davis. Her slaying sparked community outrage and more
aggressive measures to reduce the homicide rate.

CONGRESSWOMAN continued from front cover
Corrine Brown was elected to Congress from the Third District of Florida in
1992. Corrine Brown was first elected to public office in 1982. Congresswoman Corrine
Brown is a public servant who truly prides herself on delivering the goods and servic-
es of the federal government to her constituents. When Corrine goes to the State or
Nation's Capitol as a representative of the people, she does not go alone or with a select
entarouge of select family and friends. Congresswoman Corrine Brown goes to the
Capitol with her constituents who elected her. Brown invites constituents to share an
experience that had been off limits. On Tuesday, January 2, at 6:00 p.m., an Arnette Tour
Bus out of Tallahassee filled with the Congresswoman's family, friends and supporters
pulled out of the Gateway Shopping Center and hit the road for Washington, D. C. The
Congresswoman was there to send us off. Renown Broadway performer Roslyn
Burrough sang, World War II Hero, Sam Muldrew led us in prayer and the trip to
Washington, DC 'Hit the Road.' Congresswoman Brown's local staff and the Orlando
staff traveling with this group included: Ken Johnson, Frances Simmons and Donna
Hardy. From her Orlando office Chester Glover, Ronita Sanders and Hope Bryant ser-
ved as hosts and facilitators. They provided us bottled water soft drinks, and snacks.
On the road the group watched a barrage of the latest videos selected by the
Congresswoman, dinned in roadside eateries, flirted with the bus drivers and literally
had a ball all the way to Washington.
The group arrived early in the morning on Wednesday, January 3rd at the
Marriott Metro Center across the street from Macy's Department Store in downtown
Washington, D. C. We were able to check into our rooms and to go anywhere we want-
ed to. This was our day to roam. No one needed directions or instructions. The group
went off. That evening the bus riders gathered with those who flew in or traveled by
rail for the Swearing-in Ceremony. We went to the Historic Blair Mansion Inn
Restaurant and Murder Mystery Theatre in Silver Spring, Maryland for dinner and an
interactive live show. It was great and we had a blast. The entertainment was a live show
titled, "The Night That Disco Died." We dined, danced and were delighted to learn that
Arnold Aubrey, a DC cop by day and performer by night is a native of West Palm Beach.
The audience's delight permeated the atmosphere. Polly Summers and Ester Ross were
leading characters. We saw so much Polly/Ester, for each character was maxed out in
this disco and fashion fabric of the 1970s.
On Thursday, January 4th we witnessed the Swearing-In Ceremony of the 110th
Congress. This was a historic occasion for all that witnessed. Nancy Pelosi was sworn
in as Speaker of the House. This was the first time in the history of our nation that a
woman was the speaker for Congress. Speaker Pelosi named our Congresswoman
Corrine Brown as Chairman of the Railroad Subcommittee.
As chairwoman of this committee Brown's focus will be on securing safety and
security upgrades, and the continuation and growth of Amtrak and other forms of pub-
lic transportation. State Senator Tony Hill and Jacksonville International Airport
Executive, Michael Stewart welcomed the delegations and served lunch to the Florida
delegation. Speaking to constituents Brown stated, "Congress has a lot of important
work to complete on behalf of the American people. These issues include finding a suit-
able resolution to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, caring for the men and woman who
fight for us every day through veteran's benefits, develop new transportation solutions
that balance maintenance and the infrastructure with progress, and ensuring that every
American's medical needs are met through the expansion and strengthening of
Medicaid and Medicare Programs."
In observance of the Martin Luther King celebration, Brown and her colleagues
in the Democratic Party are seeking to follow King's glowing example, working to bring
change and a new direction for all Americans.
Democrats put forward an agenda for change that addresses critical economic,
health care, and educational concerns of ordinary families. In the first 100 hours, the
democratically controlled Congress passed legislation to make the American people
safer. This Congress seeks to become more honest and open.The 110th Congress
pledges to see that this economy is fairer as it builds a better future for all of America's
children. Congresswoman Brown further pledged that as a member of the
Transportation & Infrastructure committee to continue to work to ensure the Florida and
the Third District get their fair share of federal transportation dollars to meet the needs
of our continually growing state.

McDonald's Career Day:
INTERVIEWS ON THE SPOT


Jacksonville, FL -
Despite the low unemploy-
ment rate, many people on
the First Coast are looking
for job opportunities.
McDonald's is looking to
add to its team. It is offering
what you can call
"McOpportunities." On
January 25th McDonald's
was accepting applications


Debbie Moreland


and interviewing on the spot at every location in Florida.
This was part of the restaurant chain's "Career Day 2007."
Debbie Moreland, the Owner and Operator of 4
local McDonald's Restaurants, is hoping to add at least
ten people to her team. She says there are many benefits
to working at McDonald's. Some of those benefits
include competitive wages, flexible schedules, daycare
discounts, scholarships and meal discounts.
Moreland says people often think of McDonald's
as a place where you can just earn minimum wage. She
says, "That's not the case." On average, she pays her start-
ing employees $7.50 an hour. She says a lot of people
think the pay starts at minimum wage, $4.77.
Moreland says there are many opportunities for
people to move up within the company. She says working
at McDonald's can be a career. Moreland started working
for the restaurant chain 27 years ago. "I have the ketchup
in my veins." She was a Manager-in-Trainee right out of
college, worked her way up and eventually bought four
stores.
Moreland says workers can be a part of the Crew.
Then move up to Crew Chief and possibly manager.
Depending on the location, a store manager can make
$39,000 and more a year.
Anyone was able to apply on Career Day.
Moreland says it was important to dress for success and
be on time. During an interview for any job, she says a
person should bring a resume, wait for an offer before
talking about salary and always bring a pen and paper
with you.
The Career Day took place at all McDonald's
restaurants in Florida. For more information on opportu-
nities at McDonald's and tips on finding a job, go-to your
nearest McDonald's Restaurant.

Brown further states, as a member of the Transportation & Infrastructure com-
mittee, I will continue to ensure that Florida and the Third District get their fair share of
federal transportation dollars to meet the needs of our continually growing state. As the
Chairman of the Railroad Subcommittee, my focus will be on securing safety and secu-
rity upgrades, and the continuation and growth of Amtrak and other forms of public
transportation.
Brown further stated, "We will make America safer by implementing the rec-
ommendations of the 9/11 Commission, make our economy fairer by raising the mini-
mum wage, make college more affordable by cutting the interests rates on student loans,
improve health care by requiring Medicare to negotiate for lower prescription drug
prices and promoting stem cell research, and take the first step toward achieving ener-
gy independence by repeating subsidies to Big Oil and investing the savings in renew-
able energy: After the "Swearing-In Ceremony" and funch we were on our own, further
shopping till we dropped.
That evening we were transported to the three-story mansion of Gus Pelzer for
a VIP Reception in Silver Spring, Maryland. The Pelzer Mansion was absolutely mar-
velous and they made us to feel at home. The Pelzers hired a band and we danced on
hardwood floors. The food was bountiful and most delicious, we all had a ball, enjoy-
ing the hospitality and art work exhibited throughout the home. Gus Pelzer is president
of the Pelzer Communications, a telecommunications product company that offers a full
array of access, data, voice and internet products and services. Pelzer's alliances with
major carriers allow the company to extend significant cost savings to customer's prod-
ucts and services.
We saw more of our group at the Macy's Department Store than at the Marriott
Metro Center. Our group include: Josephine Brooks, Ruby Holmes, Dorene Hollins,
Rosa Jackson, Connie Gilbert, Lela Drewer, Ike and Marilyn Williams, Juanita Owens,
Ruby Bodie, Luella McQueen, Carolyn Cornwell, Annie Wilson, Arlene Frazier, John

Our group couldn't leave the nation's Capitol without a visit to the Smithsonian
Zoo. For our Congressional delegation the zoo opened at 8:00 a.m. It was raining, but
the three pandas put on a show for the Delegation. We took lots and lots of cute pictures
of the baby panda, mamma and daddy and then we were south bound to Jacksonville
and Orlando.

CONGRESSWOMAN continued from B4

This trip was a blast. Her constituents and colleagues know Corrine Brown, a
native of Jacksonville, Florida, as a fighter. Her campaign slogan, "Corrine Delivers"
is one of the most apt descriptions of Brown's style of service. By focusing on issues
that are key to economic development, Brown has helped bring jobs and opportunities
to towns and cities throughout the Third District.
Brown has been a member of the Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure
since coming to Congress. Early in the 108th Congress, Brown was picked by the
Democratic Leadership to be the Ranking Demarcate on the Transportation
Subcommittee on Railroad. This subcommittee is very important to Florida and the
Third District because of its jurisdiction over the passenger and freight rail industry,
which plays a vital role in Florida's economy.
Corrine Brown has been critical in the fight to get Florida its share of trans-
portation money. Since coming to Congress, Congresswoman Corrine Brown has
repeatedly fought for the issues that are critical to working families. Whether it's fight-
ing for improvements in public education or quality childcare, Brown has always voted
to protect working families. She joined the fight to add 100,000 new teachers to our
schools and she has repeatedly fought for the increase in the minimum wage that was
passed days ago. Brown fought to pass the Family and Medical Leave Act and she
joined President Clinton in supporting the effort to put 100,000 new police officers on
the street. And, as a result, crime is down in neighborhoods throughout Florida.

Take Stock In Children
Jacksonville, FL An
organization which helps
low-income students get
scholarships for school is
looking for your help.
Take Stock in Children
i- students are matched with
a caring adult mentor who
.. : -meets with the student at
his or her school for one
hour per week.
A caring individual
enhances the positive development of a child and helps
them model their behaviors and attitudes towards a better,
more promising future.
This support and guidance, in the form of men-
toring, contributes to creating an encouraging, nurturing
environment that allows children to believe in themselves
and their dreams.
Mentoring is the key to success for Take Stock in
Children students.
Nationwide research shows that if a young per-
son is mentored they are 52% less likely to skip school,
46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs, and 27% less
likely to begin drinking alcohol.
Take Stock in Children mentors commit their
time to the students throughout the duration of their mid-
dle and high school careers.
These mentors provide motivation, guidance,
friendship, and support to help ensure the child's success
in school and life.
Every new mentor will recieve mentor training
and support prior to being matched with a mentee.


Where Can I Get Tutoring?
By Scott Palat

Believe it or not, the best place to get tutoring is online.

When most parents hear the phrase "online tutoring", they can't quite envision
it, but when students hear about it, they are intrigued. Online tutoring allows a tutor and
student to communicate from computer to computer.
Most online tutoring sessions take place inside an online
classroom.
Many online tutoring services offer a whiteboard
so words can be written or drawn with the mouse and
keyboard. Only the best online tutoring classrooms offer
voice over ip. This means both the student and tutor can
speak through the computer as long as both have a micro-
phone and speakers.

Online Tutoring Offers Great Communication
Students can ask any question and the tutor is
able to walk them through the entire problem solving
process and help the student to solve each problem. This
one-on-one communication is what most students need to
overcome learning obstacles.
In the classroom, most students are left behind if
they don't ask specific questions to help them understand
what they are learning. Once a student starts falling
behind, tutoring must be provided to prevent failing
grades. Often times a personal face to face tutor intimi-
dates students and still might not help.

Each Lesson Can Be Printed Out
Online tutoring allows any student to get the one on one attention they need
without the intimidation factor. Students feel comfortable learning online and the fact
that each lesson can be printed is a wonderful study tool.
If you never tried online tutoring, I suggest you give it a try and allow your child
to learn online. The cost is usually less than a private tutor and you won't have to drive
and worry about scheduling issues. Your child can learn from any computer as long as
there is an internet connection.
Go to www.live-etutor.com to learn more about online tutoring and watch a vir-
tual tour inside of our online classroom. All tutors are screened, qualified and ready to
help your child get better grades!
Scott Palat graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Health
and Physical Education degree. In 2002, Scott started www.ehomeworkhelp.com
because he saw a need to help struggling students complete their homework assignments
and understand their schoolwork. Since this time, E Homework Help inc. and
http://www.live-etutor.com have helped hundreds of students get better grades.

Georgia Considers Bible As Textbook
ATLANTA (March 27) Decatur High School student Kurt Hughes wouldn't call himself reli-
gious. He's never even read the Bible. -
. But he wouldn't mind taking a class on the holy text if it were offered at his high school in L -- i
Decatur, Ga. After all, "You look at 'The Old Man and the Sea,' 'King Arthur' and even 'The Matrix,' all '- '-
have biblical allusions," the junior says. "It'd be useful to know exactly what's in it." & -
The Georgia legislature seems poised to endorse just such a course. Though students in many -
states enroll in classes related to the Bible, Georgia would become the first to require its Department of _p._
Education to put in place a curriculum to teach the history and literature of the Bible. Schools would,
use the book itself as the classroom textbook. Specifically the bill would establish electives on both the
New and Old Testaments.
It has overwhelmingly passed both chambers, but needs a final vote on a minor House change.
The vote is expected as early as Monday. If it passes, the state's Department of Education has a year to establish Bible elective courses in the cur-
riculum.
In the late 1700s, Congress thought enough of the Bible as a textbook that it printed 40,000 copies. But the bold effort here in Georgia to
use the Bible in today's secular curricula may be about presenting it as a moral code'rather than a foundation to better understand the biblical allu-
sions in literature, critics say.
"Behind this is the tension around the country about how to go about doing a Bible elective, and a lot is at stake," says Charles Haynes,
director of the First Amendment Center in Arlington, Va.
The Bible is already being used as a course study in as many as 1,000 American high schools, according to the National Council on Bible
Curriculum in Public Schools in Greensboro, N.C. The US Supreme Court allows it as long as it's presented objectively, and not taught as fact. But
the Georgia legislature's unprecedented decision to wade into what is usually a school district initiative has created concerns.
For example, the bill's use of terms such as Old and New Testament reflect a Protestant bias, some critics say. After all, Catholics and Jews
have different interpretations and names for the tome. "To pick one is to suggest that is the right Bible, which is a school district making a faith state-
ment," says Judith Schaeffer, a lawyer for People For the American Way, which works to maintain the separation of church and state.
: Others worry that this trend Alabama and Missouri are also considering statewide Bible study classes is part of the broader culture war
over the role of religion in civic life, and seeks to satisfy social conservatives rather than enlighten students.
"This is a political issue as much as it is a religious issue," says
Frances Paterson, a professor at Valdosta State University who special-
S" izes in religion and public education. "I would guess that [its sponsors]
". : .. hope that nobody is going to police this, and when people step over the
-; ~ line, it's going to be ignored, either because nobody's aware of it or
they'd be intimidated into not objecting."
Its sponsors insist the bill aims to help students gain broader
H. e understanding about the underpinnings of Western culture, from
-- Michelangelo to Hemingway.
"The biggest misconception is that this teaches the Bible when, in
fact, it uses the Bible as the primary text to teach a course in history and
literature influenced by the Bible," says a-spokesman for Sen. Tommie
.Williams (R), the bill's sponsor.
The Bible was the most quoted source for the Founding Fathers,
Bible scholars say.
The "New England Primer," with its heavy reliance on scriptural
texts to teach reading and comprehension, instructed all presidents until
S James Garfield, according to Kenyn Cureton, of the Southern Baptist
Convention, who studies early textbooks in US history.
"- "It's amazing that we have jettisoned the Bible from the classroom
.when it is the foundation of the Republic," says Dr. Cureton, a
-. spokesman for the Convention with headquarters in Nashville, Tenn.
~- M Mary parents, however, may object to using the Bible as a text-
l -" bbook since doing so may expose their children to the book's various
interpretations and criticism, some say.

Residents of north
Fulton represent 29 percent
of the county's population
of 915,000 but pay 42 per-

to the loss of $193 million in
property taxes alone, for
Fulton County.
About 25 miles to the

the Rev. J. Allen Milner said
he is afraid the tax revenue

"If you take that money
out of their coffers, human

two realized that no one in the city was

Ask Deanna! is an advice column known for its fearless approach to reality-based
subjects!
Dear Deanna!
I learned that my husband has been cheating on me. I am currently
trying to decide if I can forgive him and if we can salvage our 10 year
marriage. He told me that he was very sorry for what he has done but
I could have reduced the pain ifl hadn't followed him to the hotel and ,
caught him. He says all black men cheat at some time and it's a man's ,
DNA. He then pointed out our male friends that cheat and named a
few celebrities. If things don't work out is this what 1 have to look
forward to in dealing with black men?
Terribly Disappointed On-Line Reader

Dear Terribly Disappointed: -
Your husband is sorry indeed because he got busted with another woman and tried to flip the script
and put the blame on you. All black men don't cheat and infidelity has to do with lust, immaturity
and being selfish. If he and his friends all have cheating in common, they're birds of a feather that
shouldn't be married. Your husband has confirmed he's a cheater and he'll cheat again if you stay
and accept it. Life is too short and if you find yourself in another relationship with a black man, give
him a fair chance with a clean slate and you won't be disappointed.


Dear Deanna!
I have the tendency to ruin every good relationship that I enter. I get to the point where 1 really like
the guy a lot and then I start finding things that annoy me and eventually the relationship ends. I don't
know why I do this but as soon as things get serious I start to see all of his flaws, shortcomings and
rfy pet peeves become stronger. I am single and I want to be in a committed relationship but I can't
find a man good enough to be with. What do 1 do?
E.C. Smith Washington, DC

Dear E.C. Smith:
You're single because you sabotage your relationships with nick picky foolishness. You don't know
how to handle a serious relationship and this should be communicated to the person you're dating.
Once you communicate your fears there's a possibility you can work through these things together
and you may find yourself with the love of your life. As for a man that's good enough, that's an
excuse on your part and you need to get real with yourself and handle your issues first before toss-
ing stones that don't need to be tossed.
*** I***********

Dear Deanna!
I'm a 22 year old student and I have a problem getting along with females. I don't want to boast but
I'm as good as it gets when it comes to friendship. I go out of my way and look for nothing in return.
If a friend needs to talk, I'm there, even if I disagree, I always come with a non bias approach. I con-
tinue to get disrespect from so called friends. With the start of the New Year I cut all ties with these
friends. Why have I been treated this way all my life by family and friends? Is there something wrong
with me?
Bewildered Online Reader

Dear Bewildered:
There's something about you that is going to shine and the females you deal with don't like it.
However, you play into this if you walk around having a pity party and expecting this treatment from
people so this is what you get. In other words, you allow it. In order to gain your respect you need
to put a few people in check by stopping them on the spot when they start to belittle you, ridicule
you or put you down. There's nothing wrong with you and its good you've dropped the excess bag-
gage. Get on with your life, take control when being disrespected and keep it moving.

Baby Rally!
N laI or .lJohIin PC',, n

As part of ouir ongoing response to the spike in t
gun-related crime in J.ackson ille. Sheriff Rutherford t
Cil. Council. community leaders and I are working g ,
together to implement a number of solutions to reduce
our cit 's crime rate. One of the best \va.\s to address the
root causes of crime is educating our .young people.
That's what the experts say, and a recent poll conducted by the University of North
Florida shows that Jacksonville citizens strongly agree.
A vast body of research shows that a child's educational foundation is laid
between birth and age 5. A healthy start results in higher individual education and
earning potential and, ultimately, a lower crime rate and a stronger economy for the
entire community. That's why my wife and I read to our 1-year-old son every night
-- and why I kicked off 2007 by launching baby RALLY!
This new program targets infants and toddlers, expanding on RALLY
Jacksonville! efforts to enhance early literacy and better prepare children for school.
As a result of baby Rally!, each child born in Jacksonville in 2007 at participating
hospitals will receive a free literacy kit filled with two age-appropriate board books,
a bib, a burp cloth, a sippy cup, a "key to the city" toy, a Jacksonville Public Library
card application, helpful information for parents and a compact disc featuring educa-
tional songs sung by the Paxon High School Honors Chorale.
Infancy and childhood are vital times to develop reading and learning skills.
The baby RALLY! literacy kit will give all parents in Jacksonville the tools neces-
sary to begin the process with their new baby.
Now in its third year, RALLY Jacksonville! has garnered remarkable commu-
nity support. Nearly 24,000 pre-kindergartners have joined the Mayor's Book Club,
more than 785,000 books have been collected and distributed to Jacksonville chil-
dren, 200-plus volunteers read to pre-kindergarteners on a regular basis, individuals
are working to improve the quality of hundreds of childcare centers, and a rating sys-
tem is being piloted to help parents make smart choices about their child's care.
There are a number of ways to be a part of RALLY, and the program is always
in need of volunteers. To learn more about organizing a book drive or adopting a
childcare center through the RALLY Readers! or RALLY Childcare Champion! pro-
grams, visit www.jaxkids.net or call 630-4754.
Increasing early literacy is just part of our ongoing efforts to reduce crime in
Jacksonville. In the short-term, we are increasing funding for officer overtime in
high-risk areas and investing resources to strengthen neighborhoods. But we must
also take a long-term approach, and education is one of the most important things we
can do to ensure a safe and productive future for our community.


Taxpayers Have Until April 17 to File and Pay
IR-2007-15, Jan. 24, 2007


WASHINGTON Taxpayers across the nation will have until
Tuesday, April 17, 2007, to file their 2006 returns and pay any taxes due,
the Internal Revenue Service announced today.
Taxpayers will have extra time to file and pay because April 15 falls
on a Sunday in 2007, and the following day, Monday, April 16, is
Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in the District of Columbia.
"This year, taxpayers have additional time to file and pay beyond the
traditional April 15 deadline," said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson.
"As we always do, we encourage taxpayers to get an early start on their
taxes to make sure they have plenty of time to accurately prepare their
return."
This means the entire country has an April 17 deadline. Previously,
the April 17 deadline applied just to individuals in the District of Columbia
and six eastern states who are served by an IRS processing facility in
Massachusetts, where Patriots Day will be observed on April 16.
The April 17, 2007 deadline will apply to any of the following:
* 2006 federal individual income tax returns, whether filed electroni-
cally or on paper.
* Requests for an automatic six-month tax-filing extension, whether
submitted electronically or on Form 4868.
* Tax year 2006 balance due payments, whether made electronically
(direct debit or credit card) or by check.
* Tax-year 2006 contributions to a Roth or traditional IRA.
* Individual estimated tax payments for the first quarter of 2007,
whether made electronically or by check.
* Individual refund claims for tax year 2003, where the regular three-
year statute of limitations is expiring.
Other tax-filing and payment requirements affected by this change
are described in IRS Publication 509, Tax Calendars for 2007, available at
the IRS web site at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p509.pdf.
Most taxpayers will not have to change their plans in response to this
announcement. Three out of four individual filers get refunds. Typically,
returns claiming refunds are filed early in the tax season.
By law, filing and payment deadlines that fall on a Saturday, Sunday
or legal holiday are timely satisfied if met on the next business day. Under
a federal statute enacted decades ago, holidays observed in the District of
Columbia have impact nationwide on tax issues, not just in D.C. Under
recently-enacted city legislation, April 16 is a holiday in the District of
Columbia. Officials recently became aware of the intersection of the
national filing day and the local observance of the new Emancipation Day
holiday after most forms and publications for the current tax filing season
went to print.
Even with the extra time, taxpayers can skip the last-minute rush and
avoid needless mistakes by filing early, taking advantage of the speed and
convenience of electronic filing, choosing direct, deposit for any refunds
and paying any taxes due by direct debit or credit card. IRS.gov has further
details on electronic filing and payment options and links to companies pro-

NATIONWIDE SURVEY SHOWS STARTLING NUMBER OF
AMERICANS GUILTY OF DWD DRIVING WHILE DISTRACTED
Survey Shows African-American Drivers 50 Percent More Likely Than General
Population to Text Message While Driving

Columbus, OH (BlackNews.com) You've seen them in your rear view mirror or in
the car next to you. Sometimes they're putting on makeup while steering with their knees,
punching text messages into a phone without ever looking up at the road, or using a
BlackBerry to read e-mail with one hand and steering with a cup of coffee in the other. Or,
perhaps you've seen or even done worse.
A new survey by Nationwide Mutual Insurance shows "Driving While Distracted"
(DWD) is quite prevalent among today's drivers and more dangerous than you might think.
In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says distracted drivers account
for almost 80 percent of all crashes in the U.S. As found by Nationwide's survey, even those
who perceive themselves as safe drivers admit to doing outlandish things behind the wheel,
including changing clothes, balancing a checkbook and shaving.
"We'are a nation of people with too much to do and too little time. In fact, more than
80 percent of drivers surveyed identified themselves as multitaskers," said Bill Windsor, asso-
ciate vice president of Safety at Nationwide. "However, driving requires significant attention.
Multitasking while behind the wheel poses a threat to you and your fellow drivers."
Multitasking is even more prevalent among diverse drivers. According to the survey,
84 percent of African-American drivers surveyed identified themselves as multitaskers and 86
percent of Hispanic drivers say their multitaskers.
According to the survey of 1,200 Americans, 83 percent of those polled believe they
are safe drivers and 59 percent don't consider themselves distracted drivers. However, 73 per-
cent talk on cell phones, only 16 percent drive at or below the speed limit, and 38 percent
admit they have driven a certain distance without any recollection of doing so.
Eighty percent of African Americans polled believe they are safe drivers as do 79 per-
cent of Hispanic drivers surveyed, And 63 percent of African Americans and 61 percent of
Hispanics don't consider themselves distracted drivers.
However, 80 percent of African Americans and 79 percent of Hispanics talk on cell
phones, only 20 percent of African Americans and 18 percent of Hispanics drive at or below
the speed limit, and 35 percent of African Americans and 29 percent of Hispanics admit they
have driven a certain distance without any recollection of doing so.
The survey also shows that 30 percent of African American drivers text or instant
messaging while driving and 19 percent of Hispanic drivers do the same. This compares with
the 19 percent of those surveyed from a random sample of drivers that admit to text or instant
messaging while driving.
Key findings include:
DWD Generation: Gen Y-ers are the guiltiest of driving while distracted, with 35 percent
admitting to always multitasking in the car. 30 percent of Gen X-ers and 21 percent of Baby
Boomers confess to the same. Technology is one of the greatest DWD culprits for Gen Y -
37 percent of this age group admitted to texting or IM-ing while driving, as compared to 17
percent of Gen X and 2 percent of Baby Boomers.

Service With the Seatbelt On: 62 percent of respondents use drive-thru services at least once
a week. Use of drive-thru services varies significantly across generations with 45 percent of
.Gen Y-ers and 48 percent of Gen X-ers preferring to drive-through as compared to only 28
percent of Baby Boomers.

* Fast Food Nation: Only food trumped technology in household conveniences drivers would
like in their cars with 31 percent wanting a fridge and 29 percent wanting Internet access.
Eating habits in cars also varied across generations 73 percent of Gen Y-ers eat snacks in
the car and 48 percent eat full meals. In contrast, 42 percent of Baby Boomers say they don't
eat snacks while driving and even more 71 percent say they don't eat meals while driving.

* Going ZZZ mph: Nearly three out of four of participants admit to driving while less than
alert. To stay awake, 81 percent roll the window down, 79 percent play loud music and 69
percent drink anything with caffeine.

* Just Like the Mailman: Snow, sleet or rain doesn't prevent drivers from multitasking in the
car. More than a third of those who admit to daydreaming, fixing their hair, talking on their
cell phone, sending texts, checking their BlackBerry or reading, say they do it regardless of
weather conditions.

* Regional Rage: New York is known for its toughness but road rage isn't more common up
north. 25 percent of Northeasterners admit to having road rage but so do 26 percent of
Southerners and 21 percent of western respondents. Beyond geography, more women than
men experience road rage, with Gen Y women having the most road rage.

* Disturbing DUI: 5 percent of those surveyed admit they drive drunk. While this number
may seem small, it adds up to approximately 60 people and those are just participants who
admitted doing so. 4 percent drive with an open container of alcohol.

"More than half of respondents drive at least one hour a day. Clearly, Americans are on the
go but they don't drive nearly as safely as they should," said Windsor. "Even though we have
ever-increasing demands on our time and more technology, we need to make an effort, when
behind the wheel, to focus on driving."
What exactly do people do behind the wheel? According to the survey, 31 percent of
respondents say they daydream; 23 percent experience road rage; 19 percent fix their hair, text
or instant message; 14 percent comfort or discipline children; and 8 percent drive with a pet
in their lap.

FCC Commissioner: Minority Media


Ownership Going in the Wrong Direction


The decline of Black ownership of
broadcast media, is a "national dis-
grace" according to comments by com-
missioner, Michael J. Copps of the
Federal Communications Commission.
"Neither equality nor justice exists
there yet. We're not even moving in the
right direction toward equality and jus-
tice. Minority issues don't get decent
coverage. Minorities don't get accu-
rately represented on most media, they
get caricatured. Minorities don't own
enough media."
Copps, made that assertion at a
forum held at the 10th annual
Rainbow/PUSH Wall Street Project
Conference in New York.
"The facts are downright chilling,"
Copps stated. "While people of color
make up over 30 percent of our coun-
try's population, a study from Free
Press last fall tells us that they own
only 3.26 percent of all broadcast tele-
vision stations."
"There has been no improvement in
the level of minority ownership since
1998, even as the total universe of sta-
tions has increased by 12 percent.
Truth .is that there has been a sharp


drop in the total numbers of African-
American stations since 1998 by 30
percent. This isn't just a problem. It's a
national disgrace."
"Today, we gather to talk about
equality and justice in our broadcast
media," Copps continued. "Neither
equality nor justice exists there yet.
We're not even moving in the right
direction toward equality and justice.
Minority issues don't get decent cover-


"This isn'tjust a problem.

It's a national disgrace."


age. Minorities don't own enough
media. At its core, this issue is about
civil rights, and one of those rights is
accessible media that reflect and nour-
ish the diverse genius of our nation.
But here's the rub. We're not anywhere
near taking advantage of our great
diversity when it comes to media in
this country, and we can start with who
owns the media in the first place."
"This brings us to where we are


Long Island Korean War Vet


Creates Memorialfor Black Vets

A former soldier noticed what he saw as an oversight among the various memorials
at a local park: There were none dedicated to Blacks who had fought.
So William Thomas decided to create one, commissioning a granite slab and paying
the $2,500 cost himself. It was installed, last week.
"There were monuments in the park for Catholics and to Jewish war vets, but noth-
ing honoring Blacleveterans," said Thomas, 70, a Korean War veteran from Uniondale,
N.Y. "I want to let people know, hey, our guys were there, too."
The engraved, Black stone marks the accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen, the
761st Tank Battalion and the Buffalo Soldiers distinguished all-Black units in the
United States' once-segregated military.
"It makes me happy to go there and see that stone and recognize what it stands for,
what we have done for our country," said
Thomas, who retired as a New York City hous- -
ing police captain in 1985.
The 761st Tank Batallion, the first African-
American armored unit to engage in combat in
World War II, was formed in 1942 and trained
against Tank Destroyer Forces at Fort. Hood ..
beginning in September 1943.. .
The 761st Tank Batallion's heroics were the

Patton's Third Army and the all-black tank battalion's 183 days on the front lines of the
Battle of the Bulge, with casualty rates of almost 50%, an almost impossible supply sit-
uation, sometimes inept leadership and chronic racism that inflected nearly every move
they made.
To William McBurney, a surviving member of the 761st Tank Battalion, the Long
Island monument is a moving and welcome tribute.
"I was overwhelmed," said McBurney, 82, of Queens, N.Y. "I think it is marvelous,
what he did."



City Council Member Criticizes



St. Petersburg Homeless Raid

City officials are being criticized after a raid in which
police slashed and tore apart tents at homeless camps near
the downtown area of St Petersburg.
"What we saw on Friday night was an embarrassment for
this city," St. Petersburg City Council member Jamie
Bennett said at a news conference.
Someone posted a video of the raid on the YouTube.com
Web site showing police officers using scissors, knives and
box cutters to tear up tents, some with occupants still inside.
Police Chief Chuck Harmon, Deputy Mayor David Metz
and other city officials decided to cut up tents if the residents
refused to take them down on their own.
Mayor Rick Baker however, says he had no idea that top
city officials, including the police chief and one of his
deputy mayors, planned a raid on homeless camps Friday.
Baker neither condemned nor praised the actions of
police and fire officials. "I'm not going to talk about that,"
Baker said, adding he was concerned about potential legal
threats made by homeless advocates.
After the raid, homeless advocates donated more tents,
and the encampment re-emerged over the weekend. By
Monday it contained more than two dozen tents. ,t
Chief Harmon added that, "I think the perception was
not good of how and what we did. I hope there's no need to ,
Sever do that again." ,


today." Copps said. "In June
the FCC began its current
effort to review media owner-
ship rules. The pressures are
the same. There are Big Media
companies pushing to own


more at the expense of the many.
They may try to tell you they're not
interested in consolidation anymore.
Don't fall for that one. I've seen their
recent pleadings and they are still
marching behind their Pied Piper of
Media Consolidation."
Copps said media ownership has a
direct bearing on how people of color
are portrayed in the media. "And we
wonder why the depictions of minori-
ties in our media are so often distorted?
We wonder why issues of importance
to our many diverse communities don't
get the attention they need if they are
ever to be resolved? Let's be frank:
ownership matters."
"This is grassroots, All-American,
where people live. And it is, in an
important way, the latest chapter in the
long and often painful struggle to cre-
ate equal opportunity. This issue is
really a new civil rights battleground
for America, and we all know that civil
rights have to be fought for by every
generation. We can have listen to me
- media democracy in America. What
a sweet and wonderful victory that
would be! Let's make it happen!"

St. Augustine Renames


Railroad Ave. to Honor


Police Officer Fred Waters

Go West on King Street till you pass the Kart Doctor
garage on your left. Make your next left and go to the end.
The short block along the railroad track is Railroad Avenue.
Let's correct that, it used to be Railroad Avenue! Now
it's Fred Waters Way, renamed to honor St. Augustine's first
black police officer.
Joyce Waters Morgan, Fred Waters' daughter got to see
Railroad Avenue become Fred Waters Way.
"My parents bought this home in '59. And they lived
here until my father passed away in 2003," said Fred
Waters' daughter, Joyce Waters Morgan. As the first black
police officer in the nation's oldest city, I think it's pretty
historical," said added.
When Waters first started with the St. Augustine Police
Department back in 1959, things were much different.
Waters worked with an all-white force when the civil rights
movement was in it's infancy.


"Ijust wish my parents were here

and they could see it... "


"It took six years for him to earn the right to wear a St.
Augustine Police Department uniform. And it would take
another 12 years before he would receive a police car like
the other police officers," said Morgan.
"At that time, he was fighting against all the odds. I
think this puts an exclamation point on a great career, on a
great life, actually," said St. Augustine Police Department
Police Chief Loran Lueders.
"I just wish my parents were here and they could see it,
but it's wonderful that it happened," said Morgan.
The event was held on Martin Luther King Day week-
end to emphasize the significance of the deed.
The City of St. Augustine has said "Thank You" Fred
Waters, in a way that everyone can see.



Arrest in Killing of


N.C. Central Student


27-Year-Old 911
Operator Charged
in Students Murder
A specialist with the 911
operation in Guilford
County, N.C., has been
arrested in the January
shooting death of Denita
Monique Smith of North
Carolina Central University.
Shannon Elizabeth
Crawley, 27, of Greensboro,
was arrested and brought to
Durham, which is about 55
miles east of Greensboro,
after "members of the
Durham Police Depart-
ment's Homicide Unit
obtained a warrant charging
Shannon Elizabeth Crawley
with the murder of NCCU
graduate student Denita M.
Smith," a news release said.
Crawley was suspended
from her job with Guilford
Metro 911 on Jan. 5 after


being identified as a "person
of interest" in the case.
Police would not discuss
possible motives, but a
spokesman said the death
was not random, but "per-
sonal and planned." Smith's
fiance, Jermeir Stroud, a
police officer, lives and
works in Greensboro.
Durham police "will not
discuss suspected motives
at this time," spokesman
David Addison said in a
news release. U.S. marshals
and Greensboro police
worked with Durham police
to make the arrest.
NCCU spokeswoman
Sharon Saunders said
Crawley had no apparent
link to the university. She
said the Durham Herald-
Sun had asked that question
earlier but neither could
find reference to Shannon
Crawley at NCCU.

the country's best Offensive Linemen in the country.

Tomiln Steps in as First Black


Head Coach in Steelers'History


The Pittsburgh Steelers
picked their first black head
coach in the team's 74-year
history.
Mike Tomlin, the former
Minnesota Vikings' defen-
sive coordinator accepted
the job and the hiring was
announced Monday. With
Tomlin expected to make
about $2.5 million a year
under a four-year contract.
He is the Steelers' third
coach in 38 years, following
Chuck Noll (23 seasons) and
Bill Cowher (15 seasons).
Tomlin, an NFL coordi-
nator for only one season,
acknowledged it was diffi-

Edward Waters Tied for Rod Broadway


FSC 1st Place With Win
The brand new surroundings of the Edward Waters
College Adams/Jenkins Center gymnasium, which opened
this year, certainly added to the home court advantage along
with its loud pep band and crowd. These coupled with strong
defensive pressure, helped the Tigers post a 62-56 victory
against No. 7 Embry-Riddle Wednesday night to gain a
share of first-place in the FSC men's basketball standings.
Mistakes by the ERAU offense forced by the Tiger
defense surrounding the ball proved to be one of the biggest
factors. The Eagles committed an uncustomary 26 turnovers
after entering the night averaging. 15.4 per game.
Embry-Riddle gained the lead at the 17:40 mark of the
second half and maintained the advantage for the next nine
minutes. However, EWC's Bobby Brown tied it with a pair
of free throws and James Perry gave the Tigers the 49-47
lead at the 8:04 mark.
Edward Waters never relinquished the lead pushing the
margin to seven with 2:54 to go on another Perry layup.
Perry finished 14 (10 in the second half), Bain added 19 to
lead all scorers and Edward Turner posted 10 points.
ERAU finished the night shooting 30.6 percent (19-for-
62). Houston Wright returned to the lineup after a 10-game
absence due to injury, but was 0-for-8 from the floor, Murat
,Hisarkaya a:-1 -for-7 and Miller was 2-4)r-9.


Replaces Spears

at Grambling
Rod Broadway took over
Grambling State's historic
football program Thursday,
leaving North
Carolina
Central to
coach the
Tigers.
Broadway
replaces
Melvin
Spears, fired
Dec. 18 after
a 3-8 season.
"I'm look- Rod E
ing forward
to the opportunity to coach
at Grambling State
University because it's con-
sidered the pinnacle of black
college football," Broadway
said.
Broadwa led North


minority candidates for
coaching jobs.
The intent of the Rooney
Rule was to give coaches
such as Tomlin a forum to
display their credentials.
Tomlin was chosen large-
ly because of the motivation,
enthusiasm and organiza-
tional skills he showed in
two strong interviews with
Rooney, Art Rooney II and
director of football opera-
tions Kevin Colbert
He's a good coach, a great
communicator and now he'll
have a chance to show what
he can do," Dungy said.
"He wants to play the kind
of football Pittsburgh plays,"
Art Rooney II said of
Tomlin's focus on stopping
the run, running the ball well
and playing physical defense.
"He wants to play the kind of
football Steelers fans have
come to appreciate."
Tomlin is from Hampton,
Virginia and played college
ball at William and Mary.


(ro


Carolina Central to an 11-1
record last season and its
second consecutive Central
Intercollegiate Athletic
Assn. .title. After a 4-6 mark
in 2003, his next three teams
won eight or more for a
four-year record of 33-11.
"We are elated that Rod
Broadway
has agreed to
take the lead-
ership reigns
of the
Grambling
State
S University
football pro-
gram," ath-
letic director
:adway Troy Mathieu
said. Broadway, a former
assistant at North Carolina,
Florida, Duke and East
Carolina, played on North
Carolina's defensive line
from 1974-77 and earned
all-Southeastern Conference
honors in 1977. ..


Colts and Bears


Get Their Tickets




Punched To Miami


COLTS 38 PATRIOTS 34
The curse is gone!
A least for two weeks!
The Big-Game Demons stay home while Peyton
Manning and Tony Dungy are Miami bound as AFC
Champions. Manning led the Colts from an 18 point deficit
in the second quarter, and on a game-winning 80-yard drive
late in the fourth, for a wildly entertaining 38-34 victory
Sunday over the New England Patriots in the AFC title
game.
He took Dungy along for the ride, helping his coach
finally get to the big game and make some history along the
way. In two weeks, Dungy will join Chicago's Lovie Smith
in the Super Bowl, where together they will share the honor
of being the first black head coaches to ever coach in a
Super Bowl meet in the NFL's biggest game."It means a
lot," Dungy said. "I'm very proud to be representing African-
Americans. I'm very proud of Lovie."
Manning wouldn't concede that a huge weight was lifted
with this win, the biggest in.his nine-year NFL career."I
don't get into monkeys and vindication," he said. "I don't
play that card. I know how hard I worked this season, I
know how hard I worked this week."
Sunday's game was a show for the ages, and Manning
was the star. He threw for 349 yards and one touchdown and
brought his team back from a 21-3 deficit, the biggest come-
back in conference title-game history.

BEARS 39 SAINTS 14
Former Gator Rex Grossman and Co. are heading to the
big game for the first time since 1985 after rolling over the
New Orleans Saints 39-14 Sunday, and Da Coach leading
them there makes it all the more special. Lovie Smith
became the first black head coach to reach the NFL's mar-
quee game in its 41-year history and roughly four hours
later, his good pal and mentor Tony Dungy of the
Indianapolis Colts joined him.
"I'll feel even better to be the first black coach to hold up
the world championship trophy," Smith said after the Bears
won the NFC championship. This isn't the wild bunch, led
by coach Mike Ditka and quarterbacked by Jim McMahon,
that paraded down Bourbon Street, then routed New
England for the championship 21 years ago. Its defense isn't
overpowering, its quarterback isn't a renegade, its reputation
isn't celebrated. This team, despite its impressive record,
was maligned all season and never possessed the overpow-
ering aura of Ditka's gang. Still, Smith's team did it in true
Bears fashion, with big plays on defense and a solid running
game in the sleet and snow, ending the Saints' uplifting saga.
Early in the third quarter, Drew Brees connected with
Reggie Bush for an 88-yard touchdown pass that made it a
two-point game. Bush beat Chris Harris at the line, caught
the ball along the left side and faked out Danieal Manning
before crossing the field. Bush outran the speedy Urlacher,
then turned to taunt the middle linebacker before flipping
across the goal line.
After that, the offended Bears defense -which had four
takeaways Sunday took over and the Saints highly touted
offense went to bench duty as the Bears added 21 unan-
swered points was never in question



JU's Natasha Harvey Named Sun

Conference Athlete of the Week

Jacksonville University Sophomore Natasha Harvey was
named the Atlantic Sun Conference Indoor track and field
"Athlete of the Week" on Wednesday after recording the
nation's second best long jump at the Florida Intercollegiate
on Jan 13.
Harvey, who earned her fourth career "Athlete of the
Week" honor, finished as the
top collegian (second overall)
with her qualifying mark of
20'9".
Her mark also surpassed
the league's indoor record
(19-01.25, 5.82m) by nearly
20 inches and earned her a
fourth place ranking in the
Trackwire.com Dandy Dozen
poll.
"Tasha had a good open-
ing weekend," said JU head JU's Natasha Harvey
coach Ron Grigg. "She
jumped from her short approach and still put up an All-
America caliber mark."
She also ran a time of 8.16 to finish sixth in the 55-meter
hurdles and recorded a personal-best throw of 38'3.5" in the
shot put to place 13th.


"Her hurdles were right at her personal best and the shot
put was a personal best by more than two feet," said Grigg. y

'I i ssSHH- From Actual Police Reports
Did You Hear About?

January 27, 2007 February 2, 2007 r Abo


(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) Quick com-
". munication's
favored during
the day on Mon;
getting into any-
thing more in-depth invites
difficulties. Mon night ush-
ers in some unusually emo-
tional energy for you.
Cushion those nerve end-
ings and plan for time with
those who can make your
mood swing toward the
positive. On Thursday. and
Fri., though, you're just
plain bold and beautiful.
Make one of your signa-
ture big moves they'll
love it. Be ready to shush
your inner critic a little this
weekend; it's important to
be tolerant.
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th)
Avoid writing
any big checks,
Signing on any
dotted lines or making any
personal commitments
during the day on Mon. By
Mon. night and over the
next few days, you'll have
more confidence in the
moves you make; maybe
you're letting your intuition
play a key role. A tolerant,
compassionate stance suits
you well around Thursday.
and Fri. Ask people more
questions to let them know
you care, and you'll also
get a much better idea
where they're coming
from. This weekend serves
you up some opportunities
for fun possibly even
some of the romantic vari-
ety!
(Gemini May
21st thru June
21st) You're
full of fresh
ideas during the day on
Mon., and you might even
discover a new romantic
direction to take. During
the next couple of days,
though, your mind's on
more concrete matters,all
the things you need to
cross off your to-do list,
financial stuff, getting
ahead at work. Don't forget
to look beyond your own
needs, too, for your
karma's sake. You're smart
and sassy around
Thursday. and Fri., which
looks darn good on you.
The right people will
absolutely love your sharp
wit. Reach out to faraway
family or friends this
weekend, and go beyond
chitchat.
(Cancer -
June 22nd
thru July
22nd) It's 'so much to do,
so little time' during the
day on Monday, but by
that night you get an influx
of energy that's pretty
amazing. The next couple
of days find you extra
insightful, very caring and
able to effect some
tremendous transforma-
tions in your world
(Wow)! Keep your budget
in mind around Thursday
and Friday, and be ready to
prioritize thoughtfully
rather than just buy, buy,
buy. Saving for something


bigger down the road
could be much more
rewarding. This weekend,


(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) You get the
most done (or
have the most
fun) with a
group during the
day on Monday. By
Monday night, though, and
over the next couple of
days, you may be mostly
inside your head, thinking
things through and analyz-
ing where certain emotions
are coming from. It's very
personally productive. By
Thursday and Friday,
you're ready to roar, and
the world's impressed by
your power and prowess.
Workwise, you're golden;
romantically, you're hot!
This weekend, calm down
and slow down, for every-
body's sake.
(Virgo August 23rd
thru September 22nd)
Your thinking is
spot-on during
the day on
Monday, but
don't forget to take the
emotional component into
account as well. Over the
next couple of days, it's sat-
isfying to carry out
methodical plans and put
things in their place; you'll
also work (and play) well
with others. Don't be sur-
prised if you get some extra
appreciation for just being
you. Be ready for some-
body who's trying to
micromanage you or offer
unwanted advice around
Thursday and Friday.
Politely let them know
you're doing fine. This
weekend, your warmth and
wit are out in full force --
making you darn hot.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd)
Decisions may
S be elusive during
the day on
Monday, but new
ideas are flowing. Over the
next few days, though, it's
best to put fresh concepts on
the back-burner and let them
stew a bit; you have your
hands full with projects
you've already started, not to
mention friends and family.
ThurSday. and Friday offer
energy to spark your imagi-
nation and maybe even
ignite your passion. Look
for what's challenging now -
you love it as much as
other people take comfort in
the same old stuff. All things
social are favored this week-
end, so say yes to any invita-
tions.
Scorpio October 23rd
t h ri u
November
21st) Watch for
some funny
business at work on
Monday; a little thing could
have a big impact. Over the
next few days, do some
serious thinking and have
some in-depth discussions.
The bigger picture and your
place in it can come into
beautiful focus now. Life
may be stressful around
Thursday. and Friday. You
can let it affect your mood
(for the worse) or you can
find ways to. manage it
(healthful food, exercise,
fun) -- your choice. This
weekend, the stuff you do


behind the scenes without
thinking of the reward
makes the world a lovely
*'


(Sagittarius November
22nd thru December 21st)
Tlink fast during
the day on
NI o n d a y .
Responding
quickly gets you an advan-
tage. Relationships are in
the stars over the next few
days, and the differences
between you and a certain
someone may be highlight-
ed. Can you appreciate
them, or will it ultimately
make for too deep of a
gap? Around Thursday and
Friday, things are more fun
-- and funnier. Your good
humor and. personal
warmth make life sweet,
for you and for those
around you. This weekend,
cover all your bases and
keep track of the little
things -- they really do
matter.
(Capricorn December
22nd thru January 19th)
Your own agen-
da's important on
Monday, but so
is taking others'
concerns into account. Then,
over the next few days, you
have some changes to con-
tend with, whether at work
or in the personal sphere (or
both). While your initial
reaction may not be all posi-
tive, give it a little time to
grow on you. Around
Thursday and Friday, a look
at your longer-term goals
and ideals might be in order.
Getting input from a mentor
or a friend helps further your
thinking. Your personal vibe
is great this weekend; when
you look happy, you look
hot.
(Aquarius-January 20th
thru February 18th)
Different is bet-
ter now, and
you're definitely
S standing out
from the crowd during the
day on Monday. A unique
approach gets you noticed.
Over the next few days,
make a list and tackle one
thing at a time, at work and
at home. Once you get
going, it all starts flowing.
Some rather unusual ener-
gy's coming your way
around Thursday and
Friday; watch for apparent
contradictions, out-of-the-
ordinary events and sudden
changes. (Knowing you,
you'll love all of it.) This
weekend, an extra effort to
be warm with people (smil-
ing and asking questions, for
example) is very rewarding.
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th) Delay
any big deci-
sions or plan-
ning changes if
possible on
Monday. Over the next
couple of days, other
options become available -
and they'll probably suit
you much better. Love's in
the air on Tuesday and
Wednesday, too. Around
Thursday and Friday, it'll
take extra effort to con-
centrate on what you're
doing, whom you're talk-
ing to, where you're going
and so forth. Try to keep
that mind from wandering
too far. And prior to point-
ing lingers this weekend,


think about which ones
might end up pointed back
at you..


She Offered Him Sex and then Turned Him In- An officer was called regarding a sexu-
al battery follow up and met with the defendant, 19, and his mother. The mother
reported that the police was looking for her son, the defendant and that she had taken him
to the police station on E. Bay and requested to see an officer. After waiting for approxi-
mately thirty minutes, she and her son returned home and called for the police.
The officer reviewed the general offense report and contacted the sergeant about the
incident who instructed the officer to take the young man to see the detective.
The officer followed instructions and took the young man to see the detective. The
defendant advised the detective in an interview regarding the charge listed on the Arrest
and Booking Report that he received a telephone call from the alleged victim saying to
him, "you wanna f--k come pick me up." The defendant stated that he went and picked
the victim up and returned to his residence with her. He admitted to the detective that he
had consensual sex with the victim in his bedroom, both oral to him and penetrational sex
at the defendant's residence. Because the victim is 13-years-old, the defendant was
arrested for lewd/lascivious battery and engaging in sexual activity with person 12 or
older but less than 16.

He Choked Nephew Because She Did Not Want Him Anymore An officer was called
to Thomas Street in reference to a battery with injuries. Upon arrival, the observed a
black male, no shirt and gray camo shorts, on a bicycle in the vicinity of the call. There
were numerous neighborhood residents standing in the street, but when asked, no one
would identify with the man as the suspect. The officer later found from the complainant,
that the man on the bicycle was the suspect (SW). The officer attempted to make contact
with the suspect at his residence but no one would come to the door.
The complainant (RG) who was the victim's aunt, advised that SW had her nephew in a
headlock and choked him unconscious. She further advised that SW is angry because she
does not want tb be with him anymore, and he is taking it out on her family.
The victim advised he was sitting in a chair in the front yard when SW came up to him
and choked him for no apparent reason. He was offered help from JFRD but he refused
and no physical injury was observed by the officer. The complainant was provided a
State Attorney card along with proper procedures for pursuing the incident.

Both Were Using Alcohol -- An officer was called in reference to a sexual battery. Upon
arrival, he was met by the complainant who advised she had met up with some friends
and went out. While with her friends, she later met the subject, a white male (RA) who
she had known from years ago. She and the subject went back to her house and were
watching TV in her room on her bed. The complainant told the subject since it was late,
he could just stay the night but she was going to sleep. About five to ten minutes later,
the subject was on top of her having sex.
The complainant further advised, she could not remember too much about the night
because she and the subject were intoxicated. She does not remember telling him to stop
or if she gave her consent to have sex with him. The complainant did not want to make a
report about the incident but was encouraged to call the police by her parents who found
out about the incident from a friend of the complainant. She did not want to get the sub-
ject in any trouble. She could not give any further information on the subject and she had
deleted his phone number from her phone and did not know it. The complainant is 21
years of age and the subject is 22 years of age.

Domestic Violence -- The officer responded to a call on Tyler Street in reference to a bat-
tery domestic incident. Upon arrival he met with the victim, Mrs. B who told him that
her baby's daddy (RMA) pushed her down and choked her. She said that she has been
separated from RMA since July. She said that in July he battered her and that she did not
seek prosecution. She advised the officer that the subject was watching the children for
her. He called her just before she was due to go to work and told her that he was bringing
the kids back. The victim (Ms. B) said the suspect was angry because she had a new
boyfriend. She said the suspect brought the kids inside and started an argument right
away. She said he then pushed her against the dining room wall and began going through
the house room by room. He then punched a hole in the wall. When the victim attempted
to call the police, the suspect broke the house phone. The victim also tried to use her cell
phone but the suspect took it from her and broke it too. The victim said that the suspect
kicked her while she was down and then he left the residence. The officer saw broken
sheet rock in the dining room where the victim said that the suspect pushed her into the
wall. The officer also observed the hole that the suspect was said to have punched in the
wall. There was also a small scratch mark on the victim's neck and two broken tele-
phones. The suspect fled the area before the officer arrived. The victim was given a State
Attorney card so that she could obtain an arrest warrant for the subject. The victim was
advised of a safe location and given domestic violence information. She wrote a state-
ment for the report and patrol efforts were initiated.
