2007 Wanted Suspect
During January 2006, Jacksonville experienced 14 homicides
and the city felt pain. In January 2007, the city has experi-
enced 17 homicides and three fatal police shootings. With so
much turmoil so early in the new year, a host of community
organizations joined forces to "Stop The Violence and Start
To begin the process, Isaiah Rumlin, president of the NAACP
invited the community to start Black History with a plan and a
purpose to send a message of unity and hope. Mr. Rumlin said,
"This is not just a problem for the African American commu-
nity. He asked persons from all over Jacksonville to walk in
the march for life. And, in answer to the call, Mayor Peyton,

While the odds are long, Florida colleges and
Universities do provide more NFL talent than any compara-

Many attribute it to the weather and the fact that football
can be played all year long. Others credit the growth of
youth athletic. programs that start kids in organized sports at
an early age.
But to many, it is simply the culture a culture that gets

It may not be a sure thing but it is better than a lottery
ticket and the consolation prize can be an education.
While educators point out that football is not a substitute
for education. Many coaches are quick to add that football
holds down the drop-out rate and provides many scholar-
ships for those who would otherwise not see the inside of a
college or university.

Founded In April 1951 By Eric O. Simpson
First African American Inducted Into
The Florida Press Hall Of Fame
January marked at least
one major first for African-
Americans. For the first time
in history, not one but two
Blacks the Chicago Bears'
Lovie Smith and the
Indianapolis Colts' Tony
Dungy led their teams to
football's premier contest -
the Super Bowl.
And another Black man -
U.S. Sen. Barack Obama -
took the first step toward
throwing his hat in the ring
in the ultimate political con-
test the battle for the
nation's highest office. He's
hardly the first African-
American to vie for the pres-
idency: He stands upon the
broad shoulders of the Rev.
Jesse Jackson, Shirley
Chisholm, the Rev. Al
Sharpton, Carol Moseley
Braun and others. Not since
Jackson in 1988 has a Black
been considered a serious
contender for the Oval
Office. But, unlike his pred-
ecessors, Obama probably
stands the best chance of
becoming the first African-
American to win his party's
presidential nomination in
2008 or beyond.
In a recent Zogby poll,
the Illinois Democrat led the
field in New Hampshire, a
historic testing ground for
presidential candidates, with
23 percent of voters favor-
ing him compared to 19 per-
cent for Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton and former
senator John Edwards. Up
until 1992, the candidate
who won the primary usual-
ly made his way to the
White House, even though
Bill Clinton and George W.
Bush have defied that trend
in recent elections.
What a delightful coinci-
dence that these historic
developments would occur
in the month that celebrates
the birthday of Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr., and that
Obama would represent
Chicago in the hallowed
halls of the U.S. Congress.
That Smith beat out his
mentor Dungy by a few
hours to be the first Black
coach to guide his team into
the National Football
League's crown-jewel game
makes up for the fact that his
Bears handily defeated my
beloved New Orleans Saints
to get there. I'll forgive
Lovie this year because it is
truly a great day in history
when two Black coaches
meet at the pinnacle event of
professional football. I can-
not make promises for next
year, though. If Lovie robs
my Saints of their Super
Bowl dreams next year, I'll
have to take it personally.
Roughly 66 percent of
National Football League
players are African-
Americans but Blacks have
long faced formidable obsta-
cles to their populating the
coaching ranks. In 1989, Art
Shell became the first
coach in the NFL's modem
era. In his own way, Dungy,

the Color Barrier

The institution of the so-
called "Rooney Rule" broke
down barriers in the NFL's
'old-boy' network by requir-
ing teams to consider at least
one minority candidate in
their hiring processes. By
the start of this year's sea-
son, there was a record
seven Black head coaches.
"For years and years, the
coaching decisions and
many other decisions in pro-
fessional football really fol-
lowed the old way of doing
things," Darrell Millner, pro-
fessor of Black Studies at
Portland State University,
told the Portland Oregonian
newspaper recently. "These
two Black coaches today are
reflection that that is chang-
ing. Their success gives an
additional impetus of the
continuation of that kind of
In a recent television
interview, Bears fan Obama
made a great point about
these two men that speaks
less to the color of their skin
and more to the content of
their character, to invoke Dr.
King. "What makes it even
better is that they're both
men of humility. They're
both men of God. They
never trash talk. They're not
yellers or screamers on the
sidelines. They're a couple
of class individuals," he

executive director of sec-
ondary education for the
Sarasota County School
District, wondered if divine
intervention played some
role in bringing two Black
coaches together in the
Super Bowl to "illuminate
the potential of the
American experience" and
underscore the importance
of three key qualities exhib-
ited by Dungy and Smith -
competence, character and
"Competence is evident
when one is able to achieve
the goals of the organiza-
tion, despite times when
others will inevitably say
that one has been granted
the opportunity because of
being a minority, female,
etc. Character is evident
when, in the face of such
adversity, faith and spiritual-
ity allow us to first recog-
nize our own flaws, and then
forgive the actions of others.
Tenacity is evident when
one decides to performwell
despite unfair treatment,
such as being dismissed
unprofessionally or compen-
sated unjustly. When we act
as a land of opportunity,
greatness grows," he wrote.
I cannot agree more and
have to extend that same
observation to Obama. All
three men provide positive
role models for future gener-
ations to aspire to. They give
our children hope that the
American Dream is possible

Unfortunately, death is a fact of life
and there simply is no way to avoid it.
For indeed there is a "time to be bor

Taxpayers Have Until April 17 to File and Pay
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
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 tax-
payers to get an early start on their taxes to make sure they have plenty of time to accurate-
ly 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
The April 17, 2007 deadline will apply to any of the following:
" 2006 federal individual income tax returns, whether filed electronically or on
" Requests for an automatic six-month tax-filing extension, whether submitted elec-
tronically 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 elec-
tronically or by check.
" Individual refund claims for tax year 2003, where the regular three-year statute of
limitations is expiring.
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.

the National Instant Criminal
Background Check System
[NICS] with all records con-
cerning person who are pro-
hibited from possessing or
receiving a firearm under
subsection (g) or (n) of sec-
tion 922 of title 18, United
States Code, regardless of
the elapsed time since the
Nbw that is a mouth-
ful, but the danger of this Bill
is that under the Lautenberg
ban, people who have com-
mitted very minor offenses
that include pushing, shoving
or, in some cases, merely
yelling at a family member,
can no longer own a firearm
for self-defense. Then, if a
real criminal invades your
home with a gun, the home
owner is defenseless to pro-
tect his or her family.
NICS is the system
used by the FBI to conduct a
background check prior
to a firearm sale by a federal-
ly licensed gun dealer. Most
people are aware that NICS
records include a list of con-
victed felons, but there are
many other categories of per-
sons who are prohibited from
possessing firearms for
which computerized lists
may not be available. It is
these categories that are tar-
geted by this bill.
This bad Bill
expands upon the unconstitu-
tional Lautenberg misde-
meanor gun ban [922 (g)(9)].
This gun ban, passed as an
amendment to a 1996
omnibus spending bill and
signed into law by none
other than President Clinton,
was first introduced by lead-
ing anti-gun Senators Frank
Feinstein, and your favorite
and mine, Ted Kennedy.
During your inter-
view with Larry Pratt, he
gives a clarion call to repeal,
rather than expand, the
Lautenberg gun ban.
This draconian Bill
also seeks to computerize
records of persons merely
indicted for a crime, before
they even have a fair trial!
Under this awful Bill, such
persons, though not even
convicted of the crime in
question, are prohibited from
possessing a firearm!
The gun grabbers are
seeking to force the states to
provide the federal govern-
ment all of these indictment
records, updated quarterly.
Given the maxim among
those in the legal profession
that prosecutors can get a
grand jury to "indict a ham
sandwich," this, too, is a gun
prohibition that should be
repealed, not expanded.
records are also covered
under the McCarthy bill. To
some, this may sound like a
great idea. After all, who
could argue with the premise
of keeping guns away from
bona fide paranoid schizo-
phrenic prior offenders who
are loose on the streets?
But the insidious
part of this proposed Bill is
that it could forbid American
servicemen from carrying
firearms, even though they
are trained to use them.
Why? Because many ser-
vicemen take well meaning
advice to see some type
of psychiatric care, particu-
larly for those who faced
some-degree of post-traumat-
ic stress. Under this Bill,
these soldiers can kiss their

to unite and empower the community. They felt it appropriate to have the march on the first day
of February, entering Black History month with a theme, enough is enough.
The march started at Central Baptist Church on West 3rd and ended at Hemming Plaza, direct-
ly in front of City Hall.
About 450 people attended the event, with about 200 marching from the church.
Speakers included city and state leaders and the president of the NAACP Florida State
Conference, Adora Nweze.
Mothers and wives of lost family members expressed their feelings regarding the state of our
community. One felt that the use of guns for murder and other criminal activity was elevated
when the Florida's legislation changed the gun laws to a more liberal use. She said that the
greatest number of guns in the households of a community directly affects the rate of homicides
and that is why our murder rate has increased.
Mr. Rumlin, organizer of the rally said that the violence in this city has affected our housing
system, educational system, economic status and health conditions. He said that he understands
that a march and a rally alone will not change the problems we are encountering but it will allow
the citizens an opportunity to see a plan of action in each of these areas with suggestions on how
we can become empowered to make a difference. The rally will also point out that we are unit-
ed in our effort to see a change.
Regarding the recent police shootings, Mr. Rumlin stated that the NAACP and the other organ-
izations will begin to place a serious push for a citizens review board for Jacksonville. There
will be other meetings that will include the community and already several meetings have been
scheduled to meet with elected officials of every level to explore solutions and get them imple-

Jacksonville, this one fits into the same category as all the other ones 'senseless,"' she said.
If there is someone out there that knows something that can help solve this senseless murder,
said Mrs. Williams, please come forward with any information you may have by contacting the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at (904) 630-0500 or crimestoppers at 1-866-845-8477. Thank you.

Murder In Our Midst: The M&M Problem
A Response To A Homicide Series
I've read the Times-Union series on homicide and I have a renewed fear. I go to bed shak-
ing and make sure that both locks and the screen door are latched. All windows should be
Just the other morning, I awoke in the middle of the night and sleepily stumbled to the
bathroom. I almost wet my clothes when I saw a man in the room. He was just like the
victims (typically) in the "Homicide" series. He could have been the murderer (typically).
Well I rushed to the car with pajamas still on and drove off. I looked up and realized that
he'd followed me to the car. Now, I was. really scared. After driving for about a mile or
so, I stopped to realize that it was I looking at myself in the mirror. Shucks, I thought, my
mind'splaying tricks on me.
I recalled last Saturday's session at the Urban Core Country Club (barbershop). The patron
in the adjacent chair complained about being followed through a neighborhood while try-
ing to price a house in a normal procedure as a mortgage broker. Some white family mem-
bers from an adjacent house blocked off his escape route on the dead end street and asked
him what was his business "in their neighborhood." They also asked him to please leave.
He said that he would pray for them. They were scared and so was he.
I thought about the black and white motorists who hurriedly lock their doors as I cross
Main Street to shop at an area business. (Parking is sometimes only available on the oppo-
site side of the street.) People are afraid of me and individuals that look like me. Articles
like the "Homicide" series feed racial problems and lessens community self-esteem in the
urban core where so many of these tragedies occur.
The "Homicide" statistics are undeniable. So, "What are we going to do about it?" is the
follow-up question that I ask. For years now the community has been aware of high area
unemployment; a very large high school drop out rate; an underground yet flourishing
drug economy; high drug and alcohol use; and general attitudes of defeatism in some
pockets of the community. If you go in some convenience stores, there is little room for
sodas because the shelves are stocked with various brands of beer and cigarettes. These
products do well in depressed communities. Talk about "respect murders", I guess there
isn't much else left.
How many articles have been written about "the highest HIV regions" or "the F" schools
and their feeders and now "One Bloody Block"? Here's news for you. Concentrated
poverty sucks. Abnormal behavior becomes acceptable. Decent, hard working families,
become trapped and communities lose hope. A few hooligans hold the majority of us
hostage and in fear.
Community development corporations were born to organize citizens to deal with these
tragedies.. Citizens know who the drug dealers are in their neighborhood (typically). We
know when these young men (and women) congregate for no good and when they are just
socializing. Police have to guess. The problem of drug dealing is highlighted when inno-
cent people are killed. It is first a problem when the sales begin. We cannot tolerate this
behavior or let it get established in new areas while we weed out this cancerous activity.
Unemployed, unemployable (no trade skills), undereducated citizens with felony records
come back to our community after jail stints and take up where they left off. Some new
interventions have to be explored. One definition of insanity is "doing the same things
over and over again, yet expecting different results."
By the way, I know several great youthful African American males that work and go to
college. These young men live productive lives that should be celebrated because they
resist peer pressures and seek to do the right things. Let's not accidentally shoot them
because we are all so afraid of the bad guys.
Lastly, after I've been dead 100 years, if they put "Here lies an African American" on my
tombstone and they choose to exhume my remains, surely they will be disappointed to '
know that my bones look like everyone else's. Perhaps as in death, race should have no
place in life. Familiegrieve when family members are lot to the streets, lost to prison, or
1, st to death.....period.

Howard University Wants to Get More Black Men in College
Howard University plans to start a Black Male Student Initiative to address the underrepresentation of African
American men on college and university campuses, according to university President H. Patrick Swygert. '.
The program will focus both on research and on implementing practical measures to increase the number of
African American men attending college, he said. : ;
"I intend to organize a group of students, faculty and administrators to really think through what research is
telling us and then on the application side, what can Howard do," Swygert said.
The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education reported in December that 1,266,107 black women were enrolled
in higher education, compared with 686,615 black men.
The publication also said it surveyed eight of the nation's most prestigious privately operated coeducational
black colleges and universities and found that black women made up a majority of the student body at each.
At Dillard University, women were 78 percent of the student body. At Clark Atlanta and Xavier, women made up more
than 70 percent of all students.
"Even at Tuskegee University, which is known for its strong programs in the agricultural sciences (a discipline
not considered to be a favorite course of study among women), women are now a majority of the student body," the '
Sixty-five percent of Howard's undergraduates are female and 35 percent are male, Swygert said.
Last summer, Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc., the nation's largest black fraternity, said it was developing a national strategic plan aimed at address-
ing such problems as the low numbers of black males majoring in education and Black men's disproportionate health issues.
As the fraternity celebrated its 100th anniversary, it held a symposium and "town meeting" on the state of African American men.
Howard Undergraduate Trustee Jabari Smith, who will be working on the initiative with Swygert and the vice provost of student affairs,
Franklin Chambers, said he was excited.
"I think this black male initiative is so important because it's really going to engage students in an issue'that is so prevalent," Smith
said. He added that although the program is specifically focused on African American men, it is really about stepping up to the plate to deal with the
disparities in education in the African American community.
Swygert made his comments in an interview with the campus newspaper, The Hilltop, in which he highlighted extensive plans for
campus improvements, said he expected to announce completion of the most successful capital campaign ever at any historically black college or
university, and denied rumors that he would be leaving in the immediate future.
"When you've been president any length of time, folks are always going to look at you like 'he's been here more than most and how
long is he going to be here,'" said Swygert, who has been Howard's president since 1995.
Swygert said he hopes to move forward on several major construction projects this semester on the school's District of Columbia
campus. There are plans to begin work on a new residence hall for men behind the Fine Arts Building. The dorm is expected to house 300 male stu-
dents and would replace Drew Hall. Swygert said administrators understand the urgency of replacing that hall, which has been open since the 1960s.
In addition to the new male dorm, Swygert said plans should be finalized this semester for the construction of a new building for
the John H. Johnson School of Communications. The building will be located in what is now a parking lot at Bryant and Fourth streets.
Another large project in the works is a proposed science center, apartment building and parking garage to be built on Georgia
Avenue, where a parking lot is currently located. The construction site will extend through the parking lot to Georgia Avenue and V Street. Swygert
said once these plans are approved by the Board of Trustees, the buildings on the site will be demolished and a tower will be built containing 300
apartments, 500 parking spaces and ground-level retail businesses, including a grocery store.
After the tower rises, construction is to begin on a science center that will house the College of Engineering, Architecture and Computer
Sciences. The science center is to include the School of Engineering and Computer Sciences, as well as the School of Architecture and Design.
Swygert said it is not clear yet what will happen to the Howard H. Mackey and Lewis K. Downing buildings, where the schools are now.
Building projects are not the only goals on Swygert's agenda for this semester.
As the university enters its 140th year, the administration will celebrate the completion of Campaign for Howard; a fund-raising drive start-
ed on March 9, 2002, with a goal of $250 million. Swygert said he hopes he will be able to announce that the university has reached that amount,
which he said would make Campaign for Howard the most successful capital campaign ever at any historically Black college and university.

RICHARD SPIKES BLACK INVENTOR
Inventors often toil for their entire lifetimes cre-
ating devices which have beneficial effects on society for
years yet that inventor might gain recognition only after
he or she has passed away. For others, even after they
have gone, recognition is slow in coming despite their
great contributions. Richard Spikes is such a person.
Little has been written about Richard Spikes in
terms of his childhood, education and personal life. What
is known is that he was an incredible inventor and the
proof of this is in the incredibly diverse number of cre-
ations that have had a major impact on the lives of every-
Over the course of his lifetime, Spikes developed
the following inventions or innovations:
automatic car washer
beer keg tap (1910)
self-locking rack for bil-
liard cues (1910)
continuous contact trol-
ley pole (1919)
combination milk bottle
opener and cover (1926)

transmission and shifting thereof (1933)
automatic shoe shine chair (1939)
multiple barrel machine gun (1940)
horizontally swinging barber chair (1950)
automatic safety brake (1962)
Spikes inventions were welcome to major com-
panies. His beer keg tap was purchased by Milwaukee
Brewing Company and the automobile directional signals
which were first introduced in the Pierce Arrow, soon
became standard in all automobiles. For his innovative
designs of transmission and gear-shifting devices, Spikes
received over $100,000.00 an enormous sum for a Black
man in the 1930s.
By the time he was creating the automatic safety
brake in 1962, Spikes was losing his vision. In order to
complete the device, he first created a drafting machine
for blind designers by the time his braking device was
completed, he was deemed legally blind. The device
would soon be found in almost every school bus in the
Richard Spikes died in 1962 but left behind a
lifetime of achievement that few could parallel.

Patricia Bath Black Inventor
When Patricia Era
Bath was born on November
4, 1942, she could have suc'-
cumbed to the pressures and
stresses associated with
growing up in Harlem, NY.
With the uncertainty present
because of World War II and
the challenges for members of C
Black communities in the
1940's, one might little expect
that a top flight scientist
would emerge from their midst. Patricia Bath, however,
saw only excitement and opportunity in her future, senti-
ments instilled by her parents. Her father, Rupert, was
well-educated and an eclectic spirit. He was the first
Black motorman for the New York City subway system,
served as a merchant seaman, traveling abroad and wrote
a newspaper column. Her mother Gladys, was the descen-
dant of African slaves and Cherokee Native Americans.
She worked as a housewife and domestic, saving money
for her children's education. Rupert was able to tell his
daughter stories about his travels around the world, deep-
ening her curiosity about people in other countries and
their struggles. Her mother encouraged her to read con-
stantly and broadened Patricia's interest in science by buy-
ing her a chemistry set. With the direction and encourage-
ment offered by her parents, Patricia quickly proved wor-
thy of their efforts.
From 1970 to
1973 Patricia moved
S. on to New York
dame lUniversity where she
t became the first
Black person to
complete a residency
In 1981 she
began work on her
... :: most well-known
invention whict she
would call a "Laserphaco Probe." The device employed
a laser as well as two tubes, one for irrigation and one for
aspiration (suction). The laser would be used to make a
small incision in the eye and the laser energy would
vaporize the cataracts within a couple of minutes. The
damaged lens would then be flushed with liquids and then
gently extracted by the suction tube. With the liquids still
being washed into the eye, a new lens could be easily
inserted. Additionally, this procedure could be used for
initial cataract surgery and could eliminate much of the
discomfort expected, while increasing the accuracy of the
Patricia Bath retired from UCLA in 1993 and
continues to advocate vision care outreach and calls for
attention to vision issues. Her remarkable achievements as
a Black woman make her proud, but racial and. gender-
based obstacles do not consume her. "Yes, I'm interested
in equal opportunities, but my battles are in science."

Choosing A College Major? `C
By Sintilia Miecevole
Once you are accepted into a college and begin taking
classes, the next step is to decide on a major. Most college gradu-
ates change their major several times before they finally pick one
and stick to it, so it is important not to get discouraged if you have
a hard time deciding right away. However, there are some factors
to consider beyond your general interests when you decide the
subject on which you will focus your studies. It will take a lot of
research and soul-searching for you to find a good and somewhat
practical match for your interests and lifelong goals.
What Are Your Interests?
The first thing to consider when choosing a college major is what interests you the
most. Some subjects are more financially lucrative than others, but there is no sense in studying
a subject that will make you miserable once you begin working in your field. It is obvious that
business, sales and marketing degrees tend to put you on the path toward financial wellbeing,
but if you are not interested in the business world you will find that you do not enjoy your cho-
sen career path. Rather than choosing something simply because of future financial benefits, try
exploring a variety of options before locking down on one. If financial status is major goal, take
a variety of science classes to see if those suit your fancy.
Why Are You In College?
However, practicality should be considered when you choose your major. You should
evaluate that reasons you are in college, and plan your course of study accordingly. If you at
attending strictly to gain general knowledge and experiences, then choosing something simply
because you are interested in it might be an acceptable way to go. If you enjoy reading and writ-
ing, getting a degree in English might be beneficial to you. However, English degrees are not
quite as marketable as business or science degrees.
If you are unclear about your interests when you first enter college, rest assured that
you are not alone. Many people look at their undergraduate experience as a way to get acquaint-
ed with themselves in an intellectual and a personal way. Take a wide variety of classes during
your basic coursework, and you might find that your major finds you. If you tend to enjoy psy-
chology classes more than anything else, you might consider majoring in the subject, especial-
ly if you plan to attend graduate school.
You Can Change Your Major
Keep in mind that you can always change your major. Granted, you may end up spend-
ing more time in college than you had originally planned, but if you look at it as a journey of
exploration, you will find that you will learn more from your college years than you would if
you had the get in and get out mindset. Once you finally decide on your major, you will feel
confident that you will have made the right choice, and you will be able to learn more from your
classes than you would if you were still unsure.
No matter what college major you choose, remember that you are not writing anything
in stone. Once you graduate, you will have the freedom to choose whatever sort of profession
that holds your interest. Recent graduates are all the same in that they have limited experience
in any given field, even if they do have specialized degrees. If you are planning to attend grad-
uate school, you will once again be able to choose another course of study. As an undergradu-
ate, your main goal should be to learn as much as you can about everything that interests you,
and to gain as much real life experience as possible. College is your last chance to explore the
world without extreme financial responsibilities, so use your time wisely and learn as much as

And now a fight that
goes back nearly 50 years

Several groups have protest-

offensive. But others say it
carries a lot of history.
College's professor Steven
Stoll has a piece of paper he
hopes will reverse nearly 50
years of First Coast history.

to do is ask the community
if they want the name

in cooperation with Forrest

I'm in love with a married man and 1 know he's going to leave
his wife for me. He and his wife argue all the time, she nags him
and they don't go anywhere together. She tried to trap him by
getting pregnant but he stilL plans to leave her. She doesn't
know about me yet, but I plan to make my presence known.
Will this help speed up the process and make him leave faster
or should I let it play itself out?
Committed Mistress (Atlanta, GA)
You're a fool and dumber than a door nail. A small percentage of men leave their wives and
a smaller percentage stay with the mistress if they do. First you should look at the fact this
man had a baby with his wife while using you like toilet paper. Secondly you should realize
if he cheats on his wife, he'll cheat on you too. Do yourself a favor and find a single man
that will respect you and not have you in a deadly situation playing fake love games.
# #** ************
I'm in a relationship with a man I don't trust. I can't place my finger on what makes me feel
this way, but I feel it in my gut. I have been observing his behavior when he's on certain
phone calls as well as looking at him eyeball other women in my presence. This makes me
feel very insecure because he seems insensitive. He doesn't compliment me, but remarks on
other women's appearance. Am I making too much out of this or is man really not for me?
Janine (Buffalo, NY)
You're doomed if you don't have trust because this is an essential element for a healthy rela-
tionship. If this is your boyfriend and he disrespects you in your face then obviously he's not
the man for you. However, he may need some training and you should tell him about his
behavior and how it makes you feel. If he's totally unaware of his actions then you have a
shot. If he is aware, then you're right, he's not the man for you and keep it moving.
My sister turned 18 years old and wants to stay at home and do nothing with her life. I've
tried to talk to her about going to college, getting some training and getting into the work-
force. All she wants to do is run after her boyfriend and hang out with her friends. She'll see
this is going to get old after a while and I don't want her to crash and burn because of her
poor life choices. Is there anything I can do to get her motivated?
Loving Sister (Inglewood, CA)
Your concerns about the future of your sister are valid but you can't help her if she isn't
interested in helping herself. The best thing you can do is lead by example and continue to
encourage her and show her a different way of life. As she matures and becomes an adult she
will realize the need to work, survive and carve out her life instead of partying. You can relax
because she'll come around and make better decisions as she grows up.

Silling in the |park one dai\ reading mni newspaper. tvo ten ,

was the anii, er. Another ten minutes the% were back for the
rest of it. .Ilu-l curious I1 Wanted to kno\% were the\ looking for ,
a certain article No! \.as the ans%%er. The\ were making a
football to plU \\ ith. '
So, how are ou going to make it. Eas\! \\as the ans\\er. '. i. .
So, I decided to watch. The mounds of papers were then
wrapped in several plastic bags, tied and secured with rubber bands from another visitor in
the park. The ends were then tucked back between the rubber bands. This designer-free
knockoff "football" was ready for play.
The most important player on a football team is not the quarterback or the running back.
Running backs have a spotlight flair because they are out of the pocket. The fullback and half
back is in the blocking business with full-body or shoestring tackles. Tackling the job any
way they can. But they are not the most important player. The quarterback may be the brain
if the follow-through works. Football is about skilled connecting. Football is a mindset with
the will and determination to move the ball in your direction.
Football season is a good "season" for connecting our faiths. In football there is some
talk, but it's the "connecting" that puts the truth in the pudding. Football is not a game.
Football is an institution of higher learning. Talk and speeches are really cheap. I do not think
it takes much effort or courage to stand behind a podium, on a platform and listen to the
stares and "amens." Football is action that creates talk and speeches.
Evidently several members of clergy have decided to move from talk to action. There is
now a "Connecting Our Faiths Interfaith Program Series". The upcoming series examines
"How Muhammad Is Recognized in Judaism, Christianity and Islam."
The questions are hard hitting and exploratory. No tipping through the tulips here. For
example, Muslims believe Prophet Mohammed received revelation from God. But do Jews
and Christians agree? What kind of man was the Prophet? If he was a man of God, what did
he teach his followers and how is he recognized in Judaism, Christianity and Islam?
Did he teach his followers to hate Jews and push them into the sea? Did he teach his fol-
lowers to hate Christians and call them infidels? Did he teach Muslims to abuse women? Or
young men to blow themselves up in suicide bombings? Can people trust Muslins and feel
safe around them?
A rabbi, minister and iman have formed a team "connecting" our faiths. When asked how
they were going to do it. Easy! was the answer. Iman Muhammad Skakoor, Masjid Warith
D. Mohammed, Rev. Dr. George Mason of Wilshire Baptist Church and Rabbi William
Gershon of Congregation Shearith Israel are setting records in attendance at the series.
"Rather than claiming the truth of our views of God as privileged by our tradition, we do
well to witness to and listen to one another for greater clarity. Moses, Jesus and Mohammed
are the three key figures in our various views of who God is and what God expects from us,"
said Rev. Dr. George Mason. "In order to foster understanding and mutual respect amongst
the three major faiths, it is important to learn from one another. Sharing our ideas, theology
and religious perspectives will open minds and hearts, bringing all of us that much closer
together in the family of humanity."
Just think. It this can be done in one major city, one can at least be done in every major
city with a major football team. Every major city with a soccer team. Every major city with
a biking trail. Every major mountain with a view. Every major ocean with a boat on it. Every
major stream with a fish in it. Every major palace with royalty. Every major runway with an
I could go on and on, but the point is if we can fill stadiums with "one institution" (foot-
ball), surely we can fill stadiums connecting our faiths. Family of humanity? Easy! is the
answer. Needed: Mindset, will, determination.

O'Neal and his bodyguard jumped into the damaged
vehicle and trailed the teen for about five minutes before
catching up with him and passenger Junior Rondon, who
told the Miami Herald they were afraid to stop.
Rondon said he was stunned to see O'Neal, who led Heat
to the team's first NBA crown last June, step from the vehi-
cle. "I couldn't believe that," Rondon said. "Of all the peo-
ple. I mean, damn. He told us to shut up. He said, 'I don't
want to talk to you right now.'"
O'Neal waved over a nearby police officer, Rondon said,
and police cited Cibrin for leaving the scene of an accident.
O'Neal, through a Miami Heat spokesperson, said
Sunday night that he followed proper police protocol during
the chase, including pursuing at a safe distance and speed.
He contacted police officers along the way, he said.
O'Neal was sworn in as a reserve officer in 2005. He has
long said he intends to pursue a career in law enforcement
when he retires from basketball. ONeal was sworn in as a
reserve Miami Beach Police Department officer in 2005. He
is also a reserve deputy in Virginia.
Blacks to Benefit if New
Minimum Wage Passes
The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives ear-
lier this month approved legislation to increase the mini-
mum wage over two years to $7.25 per hour from $5.15 per
hour which would be its first hike in a decade
But Senate Republicans have temporary blocked the bill,
demanding it also include small business tax relief. The
Senate was set to debate the bill again this week with pas-
sage of a wage hike-tax break measure expected next week.
The Senate and House would then have to negotiate a final
More than two million African American workers would
likely get a pay raise as a result of increases in the federal
minimum wage now under consideration along with the
state minimum wage changes according to a new report by
the Joint Center for Political andEconomic Studies.
It is estimated that 189,000 African American workers
would likely benefit in the first year of the new law as the
minimum wage increases to $5.85/hour. Another 419,000
would benefit from the move to $6.55/hour next year, and
... this increase in the minimum wage
would have a significant positive impact
on African American families..."
753,000 more are likely to benefit when the rate rises to its
full level of $7.25/hour in 2009. Over this period, an addi-
tional 651,000 African Americans may benefit from increas-
es in their state minimum wages or a combination of state
and federal increases bringing the total number of black
workers who could potentially benefit from federal and/or
state minimum wage increases to more than two million by
"Our analysis shows that this increase in the minimum
wage would have a significant positive impact on African
American families and communities," said Ralph Everett,
president and CEO of the Joint Center. "African Americans
are more likely to live in states that either have no minimum
wage or have minimums equal to the federal rate, and so
they would certainly benefit from a new law raising the
"While the Fair Minimum Wage Act represents a step
forward for many African Americans, there is still a lot of
work to be done in the area of economic security and stabil-
ity. The Joint Center recognizes this, and will continue to
work diligently to highlight major issues that will improve
the lives and socioeconomic status of black Americans,"
While critics of the minimum wage increase have sug-
gested that it will have adverse impacts on businesses and
employment, the weight of the economic evidence suggests
otherwise. The Joint Center envisions a positive economic
impact, as most minimum wage workers have no choice but
to put their pay raises right back into their local economies
as they spend them on the necessities of daily life

The ten day celebration was jam packed with activities and presentations of
spell bounding interests. Festival activities were launched on Saturday with a
"HATitude! Luncheon" and a presentation from the Eatonville Quilters and
exhibition of the "Gee's Bend" The Architecture of the Quilt."
Crooner, Bobby Womack and his stacked wife had the audience crawling
the wall while serenading groovy R&B songs. All over Orlando, Orange

Festival and impromptu in area restaurants. Bobby Womack put on a world
The finale was a literary and cultural presentation made by actress/director,
Elizabeth van Dyke of New York. VanDyke, a New York based actress and
director created the Zora strut. Dyane Harvey danced all over our heads while
singer, DK Dyson and Director Daine Van Dyke strutted Zora's spirit.
Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960) was probably the country's most signifi-
cant collector and interpreter of Southern African American culture. A woman
of great intensity and charisma, and single-minded in her pursuit of collecting
material on "the Negro farthest down," Zora has secured her place among
those who have painted the 20th century America's cultural landscape.

In an agreement announced last week, Urban Trust Bank
will lease space in Wal-Mart stores in areas such as Orlando,
Atlanta and the Washington, D.C., area.
Urban Trust Bank .opened its doors in September, its
backers confident that a minority focus and a well-heeled

Johnson also serves on the boards

group that acquired the Charlotte Bobcats NBA expansion
franchise, which began play in the fall of 2004.
Until December 2006, he also owned the Charlotte Sting
of the WNBA, which put him in a situation that may be
unmatched in sports history: His ex-wife Sheila Johnson is
the president of the Washington Mystics, a team in the same
division as her ex's. However, he gave up his ownership of
the Sting; when the WNBA was unable to find a buyer, the
team folded on January 3, 2007.

Those Who Paved the Way:
Pro Football's Black Pioneers!
By Ronald Bell Florida Star
As we get ready to watch this Sunday's final
step to crown the first black head coach in the
NFL, it's hard not to notice that a lot of ink has
been devoted to Tony Dungy this past week.
That's not to say Lovie Smith is less deserv-
ing, it simply reflects Dungy's long climb up the
NFL's coaching ladder when the rungs were a
lot farther apart and harder to climb than
when Smith came into the league.
When Dungy started in the NFL in 1981,
there were only 14 African-American assistant
coaches. That was the same year Lovie Smith
was appointed head coach at Cascia Hall Prep
School in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Smith was a college assistant in 1996 when
Dungy, then head coach of the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers, brought him to Tampa to coach
Dungy's' credentials are today's Gold
Standard. He is the only active NFL coach to
lead his team to the playoffs seven consecutive
seasons. He is only the sixth coach to win 100-
plus regular-season games in his first 10 years as
Tony Dungy is the 1st NFL coach
to defeat all 32 NFL teams.
a head coach and at 25, Dungy was the NFL's
youngest assistant coach with Pittsburgh in
The list of accomplishments goes on but one
gets a bigger picture of Tony Dungy by looking
at those he has mentored in addition to Smith
- since coming into the league in 1996
The list of disciples is long. Mike Tomlin, the
new head coach of the Steelers joins Smith,
Herm Edwards (Chiefs) and Rod Marinelli
(Lions), to became the fourth new head coach
from the Dungy academy.
The Dungy proteges all possess similar qual-
ities and skills. As coaches they are fundamen-
talists: defense, field position football, and exe-
And off the field they ask if not demand -
that their players have at least as much character
as they have talent.
Both Tony Dungy or Lovie Smith recognized
the debt that the current generation has to those
who paved the way for members of their group
to advance and they understand their obligation
to "Live the Legacy" and
continue to pave the way
for those who follow.

SDid You Hear About?
Trafficking Illegal Drugs Oxycontin -- The officer was operating laser for
unlawful speed on 1-95 northbound traffic at 1-295. He observed a silver Chevy 4-
door car traveling in the inside lane at what appeared to be a high rate of speed.
He activated the laser and the vehicle was traveling 78 in a posted 65 MPH zone.
The officer activated his emergency equipment to conduct a traffic stop on the
vehicle. The vehicle came to a complete stop on SR#9 north bound at Southside
Blvd. The Florida tag displayed on the vehicle indicated a match. The officer
approached the vehicle on the passenger side. The vehicle contained three occu-
pants. The front seat passenger rolled the front right window down. The officer
immediately smelled the odor of burnt marijuana emitting from inside the vehicle.
The officer explained to the driver why he stopped his vehicle unlawful speed.
The driver replied, "I thought I was going 75". Upon request the driver produced
a Georgia drivers license and rental agreement for the vehicle. The driver was
identified by his Georgia driver license as RB, dob 10-21-58. The rental agree-
ment stated that the vehicle they were traveling in was exchanged from a previous
rental. The exchange was made in Miami at 10:12 a.m. The initial rented vehicle
was rented in Savannah, Georgia two days earlier. The driver and front seat pas-
senger were both assigned to the rental agreement. The front seat passenger was
identified as RM. The backseat passenger was identified as JEM.
The officer asked the driver to step back to his patrol. The driver stood by the
front right passenger door of the patrol vehicle. While at the patrol vehicle, the
officer ran a drivers license check and criminal history on Mr. B. A criminal his-
tory check was also conducted on RM. Mr. B appeared to be extremely nervous.
Several times he would put his hands in and out his pants pockets. He also con-
tinuously looked back at the vehicle he was driving and then he would look down
at the ground. The officer asked Mr. B where they were traveling from? He stat-
ed "Savannah, Georgia." The officer asked B when did they leave Savannah,
Georgia. He stated, "Yesterday." The officer then asked Mr. B if they traveled
from Savannah to St. Augustine and then were traveling back to Savannah? He
stated "Yeah." The rental agreement stated they exchanged rental vehicles in
Miami. The officer then asked Mr. B about the rental agreement stating the vehi-
cle was rented in Miami. Mr. B then stated, "The truth we were in Miami to visit
my daughter." The officer asked Mr. B when did they arrive in Miami and he
replied, "Yesterday." The officer then asked what time did they leave Miami. He
stated, about 11:00 a.m. today." The officer then asked Mr B. what was their pur-
pose in Miami? He stated, "We were moving his (Mr. M) daughter." The officer
then asked Mr. M if they were moving his daughter and he stated, "No, I just
talked to her for a little." At that time, another officer arrived on scene for routine
backup;. While speaking with Mr. B he continued to place his hands in and out of
his pants pockets. For officer safety, the officer informed the subject that he was
going to pat him down for weapons. Before the officer could pat him down, Mr.
B started taking money and keys out of his pockets. With his right hand while
removing money from his right front pant pocket, the officer observed a clear
plastic bag containing what appeared to be powder cocaine. Mr. B pulled the bag
out with the money and then put it back into his pants pocket. The officer then
asked Mr. B what was in the plastic bag. He stated, Sir, this is just a little
cocaine." The officer then placed handcuffs on Mr. B and removed the plastic bag
from his pants pocket. The white powder field tested positive for cocaine. The
officer then informed Mr. B that he was under arrest for possession of cocaine.
He asked Mr. B if he had any knowledge of any drugs inside the vehicle he was
operating. Her stated, "I don't know nothing else about anything in that vehicle."
Mr. B was placed into the trooper's vehicle. The Florida Highway Patrol dispatch
returned with the criminal history on both subjects. Mr. B had a past criminal his-
tory for drug violations and other felony charges. Mr. M had past charges for
drugs and other felony charges. The state trooper then had the two other subjects
exit the vehicle and the trooper conducted a pat down for weapons on both sub-
A search of the vehicle incident to arrest revealed a black.bag concealed under
the front right passenger seat. The bag contained 4 clear ziplock bags. Each bag
contained several hundred oxycontin pills, totalling 550 grams of oxycontin. The
drugs were concealed under the seat where RM was seated. The pills were
engraved OC and on the other side 80 mg. Mr. M and Mr M were than placed
under arrest for trafficking.
The state trooper read all three subjects their miranda rights from a FHP issued
miranda rights card. All three subjects stated they understood their rights. The
officer asked Mr. B post miranda about the cocaine in his pocket. He stated "I got
a problem. I sniff a little coke." "That stuff I had it cost me $7.00. The officer
asked Mr. B if he had any knowledge of the pills. He stated "I don't know noth-
ing about any pills". The officer then asked Mt. M if he had any knowledge of the
pills concealed under his seat? He stated, "What pills?" The officer asked Mr. M
if he had any knowledge off the pills in the vehicle. He stated "No I don't know
nothing about any pills." The officer asked Mr. M if he had any prescription for
the pills? He stated "No. While at the scene, Mr. M had a diabetic attack and

LiL' JJ Debuts "Just Jordan" on Nickelodeon
Photos 2006 by Andre' B. Murray/ bernagency.photoreflect.com
By Rych McCain,
LiL' JJ, the 15-year-.
old comedian/acting sen-
sation, will debut his new
Network show "Just
Jordon" this weekend
(check your local listings
for time). The show is
about a ninth grader
named Jordon Lewis who
is, a recent transplant to
Los Angeles from
Arkansas. He works at
his grandfather's diner
and hangs with his new
found friends from
school. He believes that
being a kid sometimes
just isn't fair. Jordan
finds himself defending
kid injustices, in his own
hilarious style, and
always speaks up when
something is not right.
Unfortunately, .he's also
the last person to notice
when he's just plain
include; Justin Chon
(Jordan's best friend
Tony); Raven Goodwin
(Jordan's cousin Tangie);
Chelsea Harris (Jordan's
crush Tamika); Eddy
Martin (Jordan's goofy
friend Joaquin); Kristen
Combs (Jordan's little
sister Monica); Shania
Accius (Jordan's mom
Pam) and Beau Billingslea
(Jordan's grandpa &
Pam's dad). Dubbed "The
Prince of Comedy" in his
home town of Little Rock,
Arkansas, Lil JJ started at
a very young age doing
comic skits at the open
mic night at Juanita's Bar
and Grill in his hometown.
That lead to his entering
BET's standup comedy
competition "Coming to
the Stage" where he blew
through the twelve week
competition and won the
grand prize. National
recognition came with it
and an invitation to appear
on NBC's "The Tonight
Show with Jay Leno." He
also did "Showtime at the
Apollo". LiL' JJ made his
film debut opposite Oscar'
nominee Queen Latifah in
MGM's Beauty Shop. In
addition to other TV and
film appearances, he
recently headlined The
Teens of Comedy Tour pre-
sented by BET
How did the show hap-
pen? Lil' JJ responds,
"Allison Taylor created
the show around my stand
up routine. I guess Allison
was following a lot of my
career. She took little stuff
that I talked about out of
my jokes and created a
show. I was already doing
a lot of things with
Nickelodeon and she was
like, I guess this is the
right time to take this
show to them. Once I
heard about the show, I
said this sounds like some-
thing I already do. I'm like
the spokesperson for all of
the kids anyway. In my
standup, if there is some-
thing kids want to talk
about to their parents or
they feel it ain't right or its
stuff that they want to say
but they're not able to, I'm
the one who is going to
come out and say it
because I don't too much
Our conversation keeps
breaking up with laughter
because LiL' JJ is natural-
ly funny on the real side.
He is truly a happy teen.
He really glows when he
mentions his supporting
cast and staff on the set of
his show where this inter-
view took place. "They
surrounded me with a lot
of good people as far as
people that I get along
with and I have good
chemistry with the cast,
all of the writers and pro-
ducers. I'm loving every
moment of it"
I asked what is it like

recent performance in
Belgium was marred
by an overzealous fan
who was kicked out of
the VIP section and then
started fighting with the
club security. After leav-
ing the venue, the fan
returned with his
cronies, all of whom
began spraying the VIP
area with bottles. One of
them ricocheted off the
wall and cut 40 Glocc's
hand. The response by
40 Glocc and team was
swift. They immediately
administered justice G-
Unit style by handing
out Ghetto, back-of-the-

scramble out of the club
at warp speed with their
tails tucked between
their legs. The show

'Whassup continuedfrom D-I
Michael Caine. It was
directed by Alfonso
Cuaron. The premise of
this film is that the
human race has become
sterile by the year 2027.
Women can no longer
~ave children and the
human race is dying off
as the last of the
youngest are ageing. No
child has been born in
the last 27 years. As a
result, people have
given up hope and chaos
has become the order of
the day. There is one ray
of hope as one lady on
the planet is pregnant.
The shocker is that she's
a black woman. The
film takes place in
London and it is unusual
that a black woman will
be the one to restart the
population process on
earth. The film is very
abstract, dark and weird
to follow. It does have
suspense, violence and
action. It probably is the
type film you'll rent
rather than see in the
Okay. Well, I'm sorry,
Paul, I got your dress all
wrinkled... First of all, it's
about those 10 cast mem-
bers sitting over there, and
the other one in rehab. I
mean, y'all are just...
[laughter] holding me
together. I thank you so
much, 'cause we pull this
thing off every week. I
love you all for it.
Thank you,. Shonda,
for wanting me to do this
role. Lord, bless your
heart. And everything that
you write for us, all those
long things that you give
me to say, do I have to keep
saying all that stuff, those
long paragraphs. Okay,
To... oh my goodness,
my family here, Mikey, at
home the girls. Thank you
so much for going on this
ride with me, for having an
agent and a manager that
have been with me 15 and
19 years, respectively. For
holding on to me, thank
you so much.
To oh Lord George
Wolfe told me, "Look girl,
you're already talented or
else you wouldn't be in the
room. So just go and do the
work." George said, "Just
try to do the work every
day." And my friends, I
feel you, so many wonder-
ful friends I'm so lucky to
And last but not least,
just to be able to take this
thing home to my girls, in
particular, and hold it in
front of them and say,
"Look, with this skin and
this nose, and this height,
and these arms," you
know, "I'm here!" Whoo!
Thank you. Screen
Actors Guild for taking
me as I am. Thank you.
