About 40 workers and scientists were at
ConAgra Foods plant in Sylvester, Ga. Friday,
,' trying to figure out how salmonella got into
"' batches of the spread. The plant has been
closed since Wednesday when federal health
officials linked its peanut butter Peter Pan and

Cousin Gets Arrestedfor Unrelated Charges


Shootes Shoots at Police


Jacksonville Sheriff officers, acting in
their capacity of undercover narcotics offi-
cers were in the 100 block of West 42nd
Street in an effort to utilize a search warrant
looking for guns and drugs. There were
four officers in two unmarked police cars.
According to reports, the officers first
observed a man, later identified as Alonzo
Wilson, 34, leaving the house they were in
the area to watch. Soon after Wilson, anoth-
er person left the house.
When the officers identified themselves,
wearing JSO tactical gear with a large logo,
the person, later identified as Jacquan
Shootes fired a minimum of three shots at
them, that struck the passenger side of the
police vehicle.
The officers said that two of them from
the first car, and one from the second
unmarked car were able to exit the cars and
return the fire. In their return fire, the num-
ber of rounds has not yet been reported,
Shootes was wounded and is in the hospital
in serious condition.
After the shootings, the officers were
able to enter the house that they had war-
rants to search. In the search, they located
five weapons, ammunition, 15 pounds of
marijuana, powder cocaine and scales.


The injured .
suspect ,
Shootes, has a
criminal back-
ground that
include fleeing,
resisting arrest,
aggravated
assault, posses-
sion of a fire arm
and fighting.
Now added to
his record, is

attempted murder,
since he fired at
the police, even
though none of the
officers were injured.
Shootes' cousin,
Alonzo Wilson was
arrested, even though
he was not involved in
the shooting. The
Alonzo Wilson, 34
arrest was .made
because the officers saw him when he left
the house they were watching shortly before
Shootes came out of the house, and because

New Hip Hop Club at


Fort Stewart, Georgia


FORT STEWART, Ga. The Army concluded, after 13 Fort
Stewart soldiers were killed on the roads during 2006, that alco-
S hol was a factor because the service personnel had to travel too
far to enjoy themselves. So, they decided to provide a nightclub
on the Army post. They spent $300,000 to change a defunct
sports bar on the post to Rocky's, a bar and nightclub that aims
to mimic the after-hours party scene of Savannah's hippest spots.
So that the military personnel could entertain guest, the com-
manders eased security restrictions at the post's front gate to encourage civilians namely
women, who get free admission between 10 p.m. and midnight Fridays and Saturdays, to
party at Rocky's, which opened in November. The commanders said they are not promot-
ing alcohol but they took a realistic view of the situation and said that, since they know the
personnel on the base are going to drink, it would be in the best interest of all, to provide a
safe place for them to drink and not need to take a long drive home.
Traffic deaths among soldiers have alarmed the Army since they began returning from
Iraq. In 2003-04, .the number of soldiers killed in car crashes jumped 28 percent over the
previous year. A total of 434 soldiers have died in wrecks outside combat zones since 2003.

Questions About Obama's Race Defy Logic

Kenneth J. Cooper, NNPA
President and CEO of the National Urban League


Some African-
Americans think Sen.
Barack Obama, D-Ill., isn't
really Black. Anyone with
unimpaired vision can see
that he is. A couple of con-
trarian commentators and
other folks are trying to
read him out of the race
because of his mixed
parentage and his child-
hood spent in distant
places.
His father was a Black
African, his mother a White
American, and he lived in
Hawaii and Indonesia with
White grandparents as a
child, his critics point out.
All facts but they don't
erase his racial identity.
What troubles commen-
tators Stanley Crouch,
Debra J. Dickerson and
others is that Obama may
have had no ancestors who
were slaves and didn't
experience segregation or
the fight for civil rights,
according to a recent article
in the New York Times.
Debates about who is an
"authentic" Black rarely
have any merit. This one is
particularly mindless and
pointless.
People who identify
themselves as African-
American are disassociat-
ing themselves from some-
one who is half African.


What sense does that
make? It used to be "one
drop" of Black blood made
you black. Now being half
Black is not enough? Using
that standard, the Census
count of African-
Americans would plum-
met.
The Congressional
Black Caucus has no
doubts about Obama's race
and has accepted him as a
member. There is no sensi-
ble reason for others to
refuse to do so.
Since when did you
have to be descended from
slaves to be Black? Slaves
yearned to be free. They
did not think that being
enslaved defined who they
were.
A man in the 21st centu-
ry who embraces his
Blackness and whose
ancestors may have been
forever free should be cele-
brated, not dismissed from
the race. Not that it matters,
but it may be that not all of
Obama's forbears were
free. Through the 1800s,
Arabs conducted a slave
trade in East Africa, includ-
ing Kenya, where his father
was born.
It is illogical to assert
that to be Black you have to
have lived through segrega-
tion and the civil rights


movement. What about
young people born after
those eras?
Ronald Walters, an emi-
nent political scientist,
appeared to lump Obama
together with "people who
come into the country."
Dickerson, in an essay for
the Salon.com webzine, flat
out calls the senator "an
immigrant." To give the
story a common-man
touch, the Times even quot-
ed a Washington, D.C., bar-
ber who mistakenly
claimed that Obama is
"from another nationality."
Obama was born in
Honolulu in 1961. Hawaii
became a state in 1959.
That makes the senator an
American by birth, and
thus eligible to be president
under the Constitution.
Clearly, it's absurd to
assert that Obama is not
Black because his father
was from another country.
Nobody disputes these peo-
ple are Black: Malcolm X,
whose mother was born in
Grenada; Louis Farrakhan,
whose mother was from St.
Kitts and whose father was
from Jamaica; or the late
congresswoman Shirley
Chisholm, whose mother
was from Barbados, and
whose father was from
Guyana. How about
Stokely Carmichael Mr.
"Black Power," born in
Trinidad or Marcus
Garvey, the Pan-Africanist
from Jamaica? Were they


not Black?
You can be the child of
immigrants, or an immi-
grant yourself, and be
Black too!
That Obama once lived
in a far-flung place like
Indonesia does not affect
his race. What about the
children of African-
American diplomats, exec-
utives or missionaries who
live abroad and often attend
fancy private schools in the
host countries? Are those
children not Black?
Crouch and Dickerson
apparently define being
Black as a condition of
deprivation and struggle.
The problem with that nar-
row definition is that
African-Americans won't
be Black any longer once
equality is achieved.
There is no logic in dis-
puting the race of the only
Black U.S. senator at the
moment, just the fifth one
ever, who is popular and
launching a plausible cam-
paign for the presidency.
How does this muddled
criticism advance Black
political empowerment?
There are legitimate
questions to be raised about
Obama's experience, tem-
perament, worldview and
stance on the issues of the
day. There is no question
about his race.

Decide On The Type Of Ceremony


"To everything there is a season
and a time 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 prfes-
sional services.


Resist one-stop shopping, which
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 African-American communities, religious leaders have his-
torically occupied a powerful position: Gurus. Advocates.
Stewards. Preachers. Whether inspiring their congregations to
stand up against social injustice or urging a focus on God-cen-
tered family values, African-American religious leaders are a
crucial component of a rich and diverse spiritual landscape. In
honor of Black History Month, Beliefnet has compiled a list of
some of the nation's most influential African-American spiri-
tual leaders. While by no means comprehensive, the list
includes some of today's most prominent-and controver-
sial-spiritual figures, some up-and-coming figures of note,
and several individuals whose lifelong efforts have earned
them a place in history.

Bishop T.D. Jakes
Bishop T.D. Jakes' electrifying blend of
gospel and tell-it-like-it-is sermonizing res-
onates with a worldwide following. In just
over five years, Jakes transformed his min-
istry from a storefront operation to the
Potter's House, a more than 30,000-memnber
Dallas-based congregation that is one of the
largest churches in the nation. He is a best-selling author, a
conference and crusade speaker, a Grammy and Dove-nomi-
nated music artist, an entrepreneur, and a filmmaker. Jakes's
increasingly popular MegaFest conference, which drew
80,000 attendees to the Georgia World Conference Center in
2006, is on hiatus this year but will return in the summer of
2008.

The Rev. Floyd Flake
The Rev. Floyd Flake's message of self-help
t and community responsibility is perhaps best
S exemplified by the success of his church the
S Greater Allen A.M.E Cathedral, a more than
25,000-member' congregation in Jamaica,
Queens. Flake, a former U.S. congressman,
has been instrumental in netting government
grants to revitalize his church's neighborhood and build
affordable housing for the surrounding community. As presi-
dent of Wilberforce College, the first historically black
Christian college in the nation, he has also used his political
savvy to help pull the school out of debt.

ance his dual roles as a pastor and a social activist. He has
focused his energies on a laundry list of social concerns:

ALLPRODAD


BREAKFAST

The Allprodad Program is designed to increase
public awareness about the importance of being a
good father and to provide resources that will
enable men to become better dads.

Statistics support the importance of a positive male
role model in a child's life, and our goal here at San
Mateo is to provide the means necessary to help
families in our school. With a high juvenile crime
rate and too many high school dropouts,
Allprodads is a program used to help our dads
realize how important their role is in the develop-
ment of their child's behavior, academics and
social lives. At our Allprodad events we provide
information and offer ways to encourage dads to
communicate, listen and spend time with their chil-
dren.

On Thursday, Feb. 15th, over 270 dads and kids
registered to attend our breakfast. The guest
speaker was an assistant training coach from the
Jacksonville Jaguars, who is involved in the NFL
Allprodad Program. The Chick-fil-A located at the
River City Mail on the Northside catered breakfast
free of chargesince they are new to our communi-
ty.

The Allprodad Breakfast event was held at 7:30

An Open Letter From Supervisor Of
Elections Jerry Holland


2006 marked a pivotal year
in politics with the results of
the November 2006 midterm
elections around the country.
The voice of the American
people called for a strategic
change in the direction of'this
country while strongly
demanding a sense of personal
and professional responsibility
from all elected officials. That
resounding voice was heard all
over the country, and here in
Jacksonville. I point out how-
ever, that substantive change at
the local level was clearly
heard by this office in 2005,
when I.was elected Supervisor
of Elections. Even more clear-
ly were the daily admonitions
where our citizens demanded a
return of integrity in the voting
.process and restoration of
credibility and trust in the sys-
tem that, in and of itself, is one
of our most basic and cher-
ished rights guaranteed to us
by the Law of the Land. That
trust was shaken in recent
years, yet I am here to tell you,
and show you that we will not
lpse 1 Vote NOT ON MY
WATCH!
When my staff and I took
office, we made an effort to
develop a culture of listening
and learning. We LISTENED
to the concerns of the voting
public and that of our elected
officials, community and pas-
toral leaders, and anyone who
had a suggestion or complaint.
We not only listened, we
HEARD YOU! We are still
listening because much more
needs to be done. We are
LEARNING from past mis-
takes setting in place people,
procedures and mechanisms to
help eliminate opportunities
from becoming problems.
With your help, direction
and suggestions, you should
be aware of just some of the
major steps we have taken to
help restore voter confidence,
increase awareness, and pro-
vide better service to all our
citizens. In the days and
weeks to come you will see
notices, announcements, press
releases, radio, television pub-
lic service announcements,
newspaper advertisements,


and direct voter education and
registration on-site campaigns
from the Office of the
Supervisor of Elections our
goal is to infonn and make
available all relevant and time-
ly information about and for
you, the voting public.
I want to thank everyone
who has given me and this
office invaluable advice and
direction, and for clearly
defining the historical per-
spective of this office, which
we all shall remain mindful of.
I want to personally thank,
among many others
Congresswoman Corrine
Brown, an ardent protector of
voting rights who has consis-
tently demanded voter educa-
tion, accountability, fairness
and openness from the Office
of the Supervisor of Elections
and the entire elections staff.
In addition, Florida State
Senator Anthony "Tony" Hill
who is a strong ;advocate for
fairness and equity. Words
cannot express my respect and
admiration for Pastor Elder
Lee Harris for his constant
representation of the con-
scious of the community.
In closing, may I add that it
is our pledge to serve the
entirety of the voting public
and those that will soon be eli-
gible. I am also very sensitive
to the needs of those citizens
who feel disenfranchised and
marginalized, and who, 'for
reasons embedded in their
own histories, have reason to
be skeptical and questioning. I
welcome and strongly encour-
age any interchange with any-
one that will help make the.
election process in Duval
County as transparent and as
fair as possible. If any church
or organization would like for
our office to hold a voter edu-
cation/registration event,
please call the Supervisor of
Elections office at (904) 630-
1414 or 630-7777. Please
know your voting rights and
"Secure Your Vote."
Sincerely,
Jerry Holland
Duval County Supervisor of
Elections

Over the years, Pratt said, D.C. residents have been polit-
ically powerless and disenfranchised without a vote in
Congress. It's sometimes difficult, she said, to assess the
long-term "effect on the psyche of a community."
S- But it was her work trying to improve the quality of life
for young blacks that she is most proud.
"I take pride in our youth initiatives," Pratt said. "We
maximized the resources that were available and created ini-
tiatives for children, not just job-training programs, but men-
toring, church and religious support, supporting families --
the most important anchor -- and providing social-service
S- support in the school system."
Donna Brazile, chair of the Democratic National
Committee's Voting Rights Institute, and who made history
herself as the first black to direct a major presidential cam-
paign when Al Gore ran for the White House in 2000, said
Pratt is a political pioneer.
"o Find A Sharon is a trailblazer," Brazile said. "As the first
female mayor of Washington, D.C. she helped to bring about
iardi Gras much needed change in the way the District conducted its
illenge business. Under her leadership, we advanced the cause of
D.C. statehood, as well as received a first time raise in the

with the law a


ago, when hundreds of revel-
ers were hopping a fence at a
local school to use the play-
ground as an impromptu
bathroom.
With no restrooms to be
found, Briand and two
cohorts well into a long day
of eating and drinking also
made the trip to the al fresco
latrine. However, a police
officer confronted them.
The problem is one that
thousands of revelers attend-
ing Mardi Gras in New
Orleans have experienced
over the years almost any-
thing goes at Mardi Gras, but
not everyone is able to go in
a restroom.
The police officer "made
us take off our shirts and
clean it up and there was a
river there from everyone
using it all day," Briand said.
The second Mardi Gras
since Hurricane Katrina is
expected to attract a much
larger crowd than last year's -
so the availability of toilets
during the celebration has
once again become an issue.
The problem i one of

beer and few bathrooms.
"No one seems to think
about needing a bathroom
until it becomes urgent," said
Archie Casbarian, who owns
two restaurants in the French
Quarter.
"The gatesrto patios are
used, the recessed doors are
very convenient outlets.
That's why we're all used to
getting up in the morning
and hosing down the side-
walk," he said.
The city provides 228
portable toilets, including 58
in the French Quarter,and 86
in the Central Business
District, said Pamela Smith,
director of property manage-
ment.
But, between Friday and
Tuesday night, 28 parades
will roll in the metropolitan
area. And, the problem of
where to pee is so prevalent
that New Orleans singer
Benny Grunch even wrote a
song about it "Ain't No
Place To Pee On Mardi Gras
Day."
"It's a problem a lot of us
have had," said Grunch, who
specializes in Sngs about
New Orleans' unique culture.


Author Julie Smith said
when she and husband Lee
bought a house in the French
Quarter, the previous owners
gave them the advice to tape
the nmail slot closed," she
said. "Our house was right on
the street, but they had peo-
ple peeing though the mail
slot."
Ronnie Jones, a former
Louisiana State Trooper who
spent the better part of 26
years maintaining order on
parade routes during
Carnival, has witnessed the
problem first hand.
"You have big crowds
taking in a lot of liquid, los-
ing a lot of inhibitions, and
very few readily available
facilities," he said.
Many restaurants along
the parade routes offer a
wristband that entitles the
wearer to not only use the
bathroom but to enjoy food
and drink. They can run from
$65 per person to more than
$100.
Providing facilities for
revelers has become a mon-
eymaking proposition for
individualsA and nonprofit
groups.

Sixteen years before Sen.
Barack Obama announced his
unprecedented run for the
White House, Sharon Pratt
was blazing a trail for the next
generation of black political
leaders to follow.
Pratt was the first black woman mayor of a major
American city. She served as mayor of Washington, D.C.,
from 1991 to 1995.
She became mayor as Sharon Pratt Dixon: She changed
her last name to Kelly in December 1991, when she married
James R. Kelly III, an American businessman.
"I've always immersed myself in politics," Pratt said. "I
volunteered in campaigns, followed political conventions,
studied the history of the country and focused on how to
influence policy."
A Democrat, Pratt replaced embattled Mayor Marion S.
Barry, Jr., who, near the end of his 12 years in office, had
been convicted of possessing cocaine.
S- Barry did not run for reelection. Pratt won the election by
S promising voters that she would "clean house" in the city.
Barry served six months in prison. In 1992, he was elected to
the city council. In 1994, when Kelly ran for reelection,
Barry ran against her. Barry won the election.
Among her accomplishments as D.C. mayor, Pratt said,
was establishing much-needed programs for the District's
Svide s" youth and becoming a vocal proponent for D.C. Home Rule.
r IThe Home Rule Act is the result of the ongoing push by
District residents for control of their own local affairs. The
existing local government is the most expanded form of self-
government since the establishment of the District as the seat
of the federal government.
S In 1790, when the District was established on land ceded
S by Maryland and Virginia to the federal government, only
about 3,000 citizens lived in the area-- far less than the
50,000 required to be a state. The people living in the feder-
S. al district continued to vote in Maryland and Virginia respec-
tively.

Officers attempted to serve
an arrest warrant for kid-
napping on suspect, Cedric
Allen on Valentine's Day.
They learned that the sus-
pect, Cedric Allen was at a
Wood Creek Lane address.
When they arrived, Allen
refused to come out. A
standoff where the SWAT
Team, the Hostage
Negotiator and approxi-
mately 30 patrol officers
were involved, lasted for
several hours.
A witness said she was
asleep when she heard
screaming from across the
hall. The door was locked
and no one would open it so
she used a knife to pry it
open and found the suspect
holding the victim down.
When the victim ran, the
suspect hit her and told her
that if the police is called,
he would kill her. He took
her to another location but
later left and apparently
went to the place where the
standoff was held. The sus-
pect and the victim have
three children in common.
Neither the victim or wit-
ness could explain how the
suspect entered their home.
The suspect gave in and an
arrest was made.

Please Help Disarm Church People Who Own Guns

As you know, one of the primary problems regarding Jacksonville's high Murder Rate
issue has been the availability of legal and illegal guns in our city. Concurrent with retriev-
ing hundreds of guns through the Gun Buy-back program, the Jax. Murder Rate continued
to increase. One of the reasons Gun-Buy-back has not been successful is because of the
hypocrisy in some of those in religious organizations who want to buy-back guns. In
essence, unconverted Church people have and trust in guns. The Lord Jesus says, "If you
live by the sword, you will die by the sword". Real Christians don't need guns because the
Lord Is our Shepherd. Although we have a constitutional right to bear arms, we don't need
them because "even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will
fear no evil, because The Lord Christ is with us". Plus, we who are converted have the
whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:18).

Since I Peter 4:16 says "Judgment must begin at the House of God" (i.e., confession and
repentance), we recommend that those within the Houses of God be the first to surrender
their guns and do it voluntarily without any associated Buy-back fees. Yes, Church People,
Preachers, Pastors, Deacons, and Church youths who have guns must turn in their guns
now. Here are just some examples of various unconverted Church people who own and/or
carry Guns in Jacksonville:

A formerly renown north side pastor encouraged his members to own guns;
During a Church split, a former inner-city pastor met parishioners at the Church door with
a gun; (
There is 2006 Case in which a member of a large Westside Church had a gun on his per-
son that was accidentally discharged on the campus;
A trustee at my former pastorate shot her husband with a pistol and he later died;
A few years ago, JSO took several Guns from a preacher during a domestic disturbance;
A former remote affiliate of my current pastorate voluntarily turned in her husband's gun
and rifle to me and I called turned them over to JSO;


The TU story from about 15 years ago on "Kids gone wild" included a juvenile who took
his gun to Sunday School; and
An elderly former member of our Church ran a Deaconess off his property with a shotgun.
Yes, we need to take more serious steps to disarm Jacksonville and stop the hypocrisy of
Church people. Since Judgment must begin at the House of God, we must take tangible
steps to disarm Church people who own guns so we can then successfully begin to disarm
the outside world.

First Coast News Named Clara McLaughlin A Media Mogul and

Featured Her On Channel 12 News In Honor of Black History Month

Publisher and Editor-In-Chief Clara McLaughlin of The Florida and Georgia Star inter-
views with First Coast News. *


By May E. Ford The
Florida Star

She was featured in
Ebony Magazine as a
Texas TV Pioneer in 1987
and now First Coast News
has named her a Media
Mogul.
Clara McLaughlin, is
Publisher and Editor-In-
Chief of The Florida Star,
Jacksonville's oldest
African American news-
paper company. She has
recently added The
Georgia Star as a sub-
sidiary of The Florida Star.
Clara has always had
media blood in her. She
published her high school
newspaper every week in
Gainesville, FL where she.
grew up, and created a
journalism program at
Howard University where
she attended and graduat-
ed with honors.
Clara McLaughlin


never knew how far that
would take her. In East
Texas,'back in 1984, Clara
McLaughlin accom-
plished something no one
had ever done before.
That's right, she was the
first Black woman to
obtain and run a television
station in the United
States. Before that, only
White men and a few
Black men pursued that
goal.
She feels that more
Blacks should consider
going into the media busi-
ness, because it offers
unlimiting rewards for
women and minorities and
that means strength. She
was proud that Channel 51
could play a role in the
Black community.
Helping raise funds for
three United' Negro
College Fund area col-
leges, Jarvis, Texas and
Wiley, by giving them free


promotions, and airing a
number of shows with
local interest, made local
residents feel proud to
have their own television
station, said Mrs.
McLaughlin.
Other ways Mrs.
McLaughlin felt some of
the power of being able to
control the media was
when the leader of the Klu
Klux Klan, who was run-
ning for governor at the
time, came to Longview to
march, she would not
cover that story. She said
it would be promoting
them and giving them free
publicity.
The Florida and
Georgia Star has those
same opportunities and
power to cover the news
that we as Blacks could be
proud of by featuring our
accomplishments and not
only the negative.
Part of The Florida


and Georgia Star features
a children's section called
Prep Rap. In this 8 page
section are articles per-
taining to positive news
for children, such as local
school activities and A-B
honor roll awards given
by local vendors. It even
has a page for puzzles and
Clean Kids Jokes.
The Florida and
Georgia Star also have an
Entertainment Section
which gives up-to-date
news on celebrities, along
with the TV guide inside.
It has "News You Can
Use" for every one in the
household.
Clara McLaughlin
enjoys publishing
Jacksonville's oldest
Black owned newspaper

Ask Deanna! is an advice column known for its fearless approach to reality-based
subjects!


Dear Deanna!
I'm a single mom with five kids and I've reunited with my
boyfriend of two years. I admit we've had problems on both
sides, but during this recent make up he expressed his love, he
said that he missed us and he wants to pick up where we left off.
He went to work one day and I didn't hear from him until two
weeks later. He left me a voice mail saying that his job had
offered him a training position in another town and he would be
back on the weekend. I didn't hear anything for three days and
decided that I love myself and I'm tired of games. What should I
do about this man?
Confused Seattle, WA


Dear Confused:
If a man loves you so much, he will not disappear for two weeks and not contact you. These
are signs that he's immature, selfish and not very responsible. Your relationship ended for a rea-
son and you should move forward instead oftwo steps back. You have enough kids already and
don't need to add an overgrown man to the bunch. Set an example for your kids by taking care
of them, loving yourself and waiting for a man that will treat you right.
*********** ****************
Dear Deanna!
I'm in a situation where I see my best friend manipulating and using my brother. She started
dating him last year and things were going well until he cheated on her. When that happened,
she began taking his money, asking him for gifts and playing mind games. My brother thinks
he's making up for cheating. It bothers me when she smiles in his face and then brags to me
that she's using him. How do I tell my brother without hurting my best friend in the process?
Janelle Ft. Bragg, NC

Dear Janelle:
Blood is thicker than water and you're guilty like your friend if you don't blow the whistle. You
may be accused of being a snitch but you have a responsibility to watch your brothers back.
However, your brother may turn on you and you should have solid facts, a credible story and
all honesty when you break the news. Your girlfriend is going to be upset but at the end of the
day, friends come and go and family is here to stay. So tell it now and keep it moving.
***************************
Dear Deanna!
My niece is an out of control teen and my sister can't stop her. I have an issue with this because
my sister gets cursed out, has money stolen from her purse and everything else. The final straw
came when my niece slammed my sister into a wall. It took a few people to hold me back
because I had plans to handle my niece once and for all. Now my sister has turned on me and
dared me to do anything while she has a bruised face and sore arm. What do I do?
Kerry S. Dallas, TX

Dear Kerry:
The next time your sister may not be so lucky and she needs to wake up before it's too late.
Ignore the dare and threats from your sister. She needs to stop being a punk and let someone
get this child on the right path. Do what you must to intervene but let your sister know your
plans and give her options to approve and assist. Be respectful to your niece and give her atten-
tion coupled with tough love and be sure to show her the benefits of doing the right things.

Your Weekly Ho

February 17, 2007 Februa
%


(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) Jump into the
week feet first.
Wear strong col-
ors. Give your
special someone
an unexpected gift. Your
spontaneous energy serves
you well. Persevere through
a minor midweek bump,
and by Thursday, communi-
cation will be open, easy
and clear -- your powers of
magnetism and flirting will
be high. But remember to
think before you speak. The
first half of the weekend
should be dedicated to fun,
the second half to the home.
Sweep a neglected corner,
fix a small but persistent
problem, bake something
sweet.
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) Mon and Tue are
Small about flutters
., 'in your chest,
S inexplicable
6 nervous energy
and a feeling of inner con-
flict and excitement. Relax
and breathe deeply. By mid-
week you're feeling confi-
dent, energetic and attrac-
tive -- now is a good time to
begin, or rekindle, a
romance. Don't make heavy,
long-term plans, and pay
attention to your special
someone's gestures -- the
twitch of an eyebrow, the
pursing of lips. Before the
weekend is out, have at least
one relaxed, leisurely meal
with them, and say some-
thing that proves you've
been listening.


(Gemini May 21st thru
June 21st) This is a great
week for you.
Dream big, talk
openly and be
patient if your
romantic interests start to go
in new directions. Be will-
ing to take advice, but don't
fear criticism. You're strong
enough right now to hear
anything. Wednesday and
Thursday, your focus should
be on correspondence.
Write a letter or have a con-
versation that's long over-
due. On Friday or Saturday,
you might meet someone
who seems to see inside you
and has something; startling
to say about your love life.
Slow down on Sunday to
reflect on the week's revela-
tions.
(Cancer June 22nd thru
July 22nd) Your mind is
electric with
ideas on
-' Monday and
Tuesday. Enjoy
the stimulation,
but don't forget to take your
time, to notice the tree
branches against the sky
and to consider the conse-
quences of your actions. By
midweek, you are cruising
comfortably toward a very
achievable goal, and people
in other boats are waving.
The sound of music hits
your ears. You might begin
to dance. Try to involve
your special someone in
your festivities -- if they
happen to be in another
bct, paddle on over. This
weekend, too, especially on


roscope

try 23, 2007


Sunday, your intuition
should be your guide.
(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) You're like a
roll of film
exposed to sun-
light on Monday
and Tuesday.
You're soaking up every-
thing you can, allowing the
world (and the people you
love) to make impressions
on you. Then, on
Wednesday, you're making
impressions on everyone
else. Thursday finds you
moving in glamorous and
powerful circles. Relax and
enjoy the party. Follow
interesting ideas. Guard
against vanity by comple-
menting someone you
fancy. This is a time for
brainstorming and consider-
ing new directions. The lat-
ter half of the weekend is a
time for putting your new-
found influence into. action.
(Virgo August 23rd thru
September 22nd) Your
sense of purpose
and high spirits
Smay be off-put-
ting to the people
around you on Monday and
Tuesday, but retain a philo-
sophical frame of mind and
do a little soul searching.
On Wednesday or Thursday,
have dinner in an unusual
spot. Accept an invitation,
try a new restaurant or even
eat in a part of your home
not dedicated to dining.
Friday and Saturday have
great potential. Tread care-
fully agd be careful with
communication. Now is the

time to sow seeds for a later
harvest. Spend Sunday with
someone special.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd) Don't
be afraid to
abandon your-
self to romance
this week. On
Monday and Tuesday,
you're magnetic and your
beauty warms everyone --
especially a certain some-
one. All the while, you're
calm and collected inside.
It's an excellent time to try
new things. And to compro-
mise. The more you give,
the more you will receive.
Snuggle up to your sweetie.
(If you don't have a sweetie,
that may change this week.)
Dance together, sing togeth-
er and take strolls hand-in-
hand. Your powers of attrac-
tion are at their peak.
(Scorpio October 23rd
thru November 21st)
Occasionally a
special someone
asks for help
you're reluctant
to give. Not this week. This
week is about offering assis-
tance with a smile. Be
accommodating. Be daring
in your willingness to help.
Wednesday and Thursday
you feel strangely heated
and impatient;. keep your
cool by avoiding unneces-
sary stresses. On Friday or
Saturday, someone takes
advantage of your generosi-
ty. Don't expect payback.
(This week'is about giving,
remember?) Sunday is a day
of sensations -- exotic fla-
vors, dreamy conversations,
deep thoughts.
(Sagittarius November
22nd thru December 21st)
There's a roguish,
boyih charm in
hc air, so let your


love life be playful, and even
a little mischievous, on
Monday and Tuesday. Then
focus on details and flour-
ishes as the week progresses.
Give you-know-who a sim-
ple, unexpected present. And
give a lot of thought to your
weekend. Saturday is a per-
fect time for an off-the-wall
date, something to get your
heart racing. (A picnic on a
merry-go-round?)
Butterflies in your stomach
and restlessness of mind are
to be expected on Sunday.
Follow your mood, go deep
and ask a special someone
the question you've always
longed to ask.
(Capricorn December
22nd thru January 19th)
N." You begin the
week with a
sense of security.
You're sticking
to your routine, wrapped in a
comfortable cocoon of con-
servatism. It isn't until
Wednesday that you're up
for more creative pleasures.
Remind yourself how much
that special someone means
to you -- then tell that spe-
cial. someone how you feel
as clearly and simply as pos-
sible. As the week comes to
a close, you may have unex-
pected bouts of flightiness.
On Sunday, keep your focus
on the one who means the
most to you.
(Aquarius-January 20th
thru February 18th) Your
capacity for
wonder serves
you well this
week. The awe
you feel inspires awe in oth-
ers. Take a walk on the
eccentric side (wear a hat,
dig out an unusual pair of
socks) to combat a potential
midweek spell of boredom.
The first half of Ite week is
just a warm up for Friday


and Saturday, which are
sparking with the potential
for love. When your emo-
tions are running high on
Sunday, don't overreact.
Yes, this may come to an
end at some point, but most
things usually do. Enjoy the
unexpected gifts coming
your way.
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th)
Sometimes it's
hard to know
what to believe.
But you don't
mind the veils and riddles
on Monday and Tuesday;
you think of them as
metaphors for romantic
mystery. This week is more
poetry than prose -- it's full
of softness, window sills
lined with candles and lus-
cious home-cooked meals.
Don't worry about exactly
what it all means. And,
since you're hazy on
details, be careful not to
make any major decisions.
Just lose yourself in the
blissful fog. By Sunday,
you've satiated a longing
you didn't even know you
had.

THE STAR


PAGF -2


As a major account rep for a corporation, I enjoyed .
traveling. I remember once being in a city in the East for ,
an extended length'of time. Sunday came around and I .
asked the Bellman to recommend a church. Arriving at the ;'
church, I signed my married name on the visitor's card.
Under "hometown" I put Conroe, Texas, instead of Dallas. Well, to my surprise after the
visitors were welcomed, the pastor stood and asked for the lady from Conroe to stand.
"Come down here, ,young lady," he said. The pastor was an elderly, tall stooped states-
man with a big wide grin. He shook my hand with a genuine wide, wide grin. I did not
know him. "How old are you young lady?" Then he started telling me this story right
there in the middle of service in front of all of these strangers.
"I attended Conroe College in the late 1930's," he started. Now I am feeling better.
"Conroe College was a little college for black preachers back then," he continued. "I
studied hard, but I needed money and jobs were scarce. I remember there were some
brothers who hauled wood and they hired us young preachers from Conroe College."
As he is winding up, I am thinking I know the rest of this story. My dad knew all of
the Baptist preachers on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line. He concluded, "And you
know, these Negro brothers owned these pulp wood trucks too." When it was my turn
to speak, I told him my maiden name. The youngest of those brothers was my dad.
Daddy was the youngest of twelve children. These siblings had a 100 percent cohe-
sive understanding that to this day leaves me in awe. During World War II, Daddy and
my uncles hauled wood. He would tell us how they had to do it. "Negroes" did not
discuss the struggle for civil rights; they discussed survival. The struggle for survival
for the Negro was ever-present during the war. One of the major riots of our times was
during the war in Detroit between whites and blacks in the automobile factories. It was
not of domestic importance because the war was going on.
In Conroe, Montgomery County, Texas, and in many other little towns, the railroad,
while not belonging to the white man did belong to the white man. Wood was needed
for the war and the mills did not care who provided the wood. All of South Texas was
densely populated with tall piney trees. But because my dad and his brothers were black
men cutting and hauling wood, they were forbidden from loadingthe wood on the rail-
road cars in Montgomery County.
Daddy said they would rise early in the mornings. Food was prepared for their day.
He would pick up his men and go to the track of land in Montgomery County where
they cut, split and loaded the wood on the trucks. Then he and his. men had to bypass
the railroad cars in Montgomery County, take the loaded trucks outside the county and
load the wood on the railroad cars leaded for the mill. He was very proud of two facts.
He could walk a track of land for the government and estimate to the truckload, the yield
to the mill. And his check from the mill was addressed to him. But just think of the
process and the senseless unnecessary madness. He never expressed his feelings, he just
gave us the facts in his usual quiet, even tone.
During those quilting sessions while my Mother and her friends prayed for her to
conceive, I am sure those prayers had an addendum which encompassed Daddy's safe
return home each night from that "other war."

TESTS THAT CAN HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE JACKSONVILLE
COMMUNITY HELPS PROMOTE HEALTH AND WELLNESS


Jacksonville, FL
Residents living in and
around the Jacksonville, Fla.,
community can be screened
to reduce their risk of having
a stroke. Life Line Screening
will be at the Swaim
Memorial United Methodist
Church on March 1st. The
site is located at 1620 Naldo
Avenue in Jacksonville.
Appointments will begin at
9:00 a.m.
A stroke, also known as
a "brain attack", is ranked as
the third leading killer in the


world, and the second among
women. Through preventive
screenings, the risk of having
a stroke can be greatly
reduced.
Screenings are fast, pain-
less and low cost. They
involve the use of ultrasound
technology, and scan for
potential health problems
related to: blocked arteries
which can lead to a stroke,
aortic aneurysms which can
lead to a ruptured aorta, and
hardening of the arteries in
the legs, which are a strong
predictor of heart disease.
Also offered for men and
women, is a bone density
screening to assess their risk
for osteoporosis.
"It saved my husband
from having a major stroke."
William and Harriett West -
Zephyrhills, Fla.
All four screenings take
less than an hour to com-
plete. A complete vascular
screening package, including
the Stroke/Carotid Artery,


Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
and Ankle Brachial Index
(hardening of the arteries)
screenings is $109. Sign-up
for a complete vascular pack-
age; include the osteoporosis
screening and pay only $129.
Life Line Screening was
established in 1993, and has
since become the nation's
leading provider of vascular
screenings. Over 85 ultra-
sound teams are on staff to
travel to your local commu-
nity, bringing the screenings
to you. These non-invasive,
inexpensive and painless,
ultrasound tests help people
identify their risk for stroke,
vascular diseases or osteo-
porosis early enough for their
physician to begin preven-
tive procedures.
For more information
regarding the screenings or
to schedule an appointment,
call 1-877-237-1372 or visit
us on the web at www.lifeli-
nescreening.com. Pre-regis-
tration is required.

that pushed five minutes.
Peterson says con-
struction will soon begin
on a permanent building,
which will be built just
down the road.

Schools Practice Tornado Drill
Jacksonville, FL Schools across the state
during Hazardous Weather Awareness Week ...
drilled for tornados. '
At Alimacani Elementary students first
heard of a weather watch with a warning issued d--i,
to classrooms a few minutes later.
Students on the first floor were led from
their classrooms to the hallway where they prac- .
ticed what they learned.
Duck and cover is what students are taught to do. On their knees they lined
up facing the wall covering their heads.
Principal Kathy Stalls says the drill did not come with a grade, but she
believes they did respond the way they should to a tornado warning.
Chief Lorin Mock who heads up Emergency Preparedness locally says the
drill accomplished something very important. Mock says students got a chance to
practice and take the life saving lesson back home to their parents.

OPEN TUES-SAT

Duke's Barbeque
started with dinner for
their three boys.
Originally, the idea of a
carwash was 'what they
had in mind, says one of
the owners.
We would cook
lunch for our boys (bar-
beque on the grill), and as
we were cooking our daily
meals, the customers who
were getting their cars
washed would want to
share our lunch. Well, we
couldn't afford to give


them the food, so we
shared our lunch for a
small fee. The rest is his-
tory.
We came up with a
name (The owner's nick-
name "Duke") and people
started coming to share
lunch with us.
The atmosphere at
Duke's Barbeque is a fam-
ily one. If you're in a
hurry, you don't have to
wait for long lines. Just
walk up to the counter and
ask for what you want and


in a moment you have
your food with a smile and
a conversation.
Duke's Barbeque
is located at 3301
Norwich St., in
Brunswick, GA in the old
Stntrust Bank Bldg. Their
menu consist of Chip Pork
BBQ Sandwiches, BBQ
"Ribs, Sausage Dogs, The
Duke Burger, fried
Whiting, Slabs of Ribs
and whole smoked Butt.
They also smoke and fry
turkeys.

History

Section


Howard Cosell: "wait a minute... wait a minute....



The new Heavyweight Champion


of the World is Cassius Clay!"

Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee!


It was March 6, 1964 when
that radio commentary of
Howard Cosell, ushered in
a new era to boxing and to
Black Pride.

As Sonny Liston sat in his
corner a broken man,
Cosell began to yell: "wait a
minute... wait a minute....
Sonny Liston is not coming
out. The new heavyweight
champion of the world is
Cassius Clay!"

So began the Muhammad
Ali era. Two days later, Clay
shocked the boxing estab-
lishment again by announc-
ing that he had accepted
the teachings of the Nation
of Islam taking the name
Muhammad Ali, which was
given to him by his spiritual
mentor, Elijah Muhammad.

Then, on April 28, 1967, cit-
ing his religious beliefs, Ali
refused induction into the
U.S. Army at the height of
the war in Vietnam. This
refusal followed a blunt
statement voiced by Ali 14
months earlier: "I ain't got
no quarrel with them
Vietcong." Many Americans


vehemently condemned
Ali's stand. It came at a
time when most people in
the United States still sup-
ported the war in Southeast
Asia a situation which
was to change dramatically.

Ali was stripped of his
championship and preclud-
ed from fighting in any
state. He was indicted and
convicted of refusing induc-
tion into the U.S. armed
forces and sentenced to
five years in prison.

Although he remained free
on bail, four years passed
before his conviction was
unanimously overturned by
the U.S. Supreme Court.

Ali's message of black pride
and black resistance to
white domination was-on
the cutting edge of the civil
rights movement. As black
activist Julian Bond later
observed, "When a figure
as heroic and beloved as
Muhammad Ali stood up
and said, 'No, I won't go,' it
reverberated through the
whole society."
More Ali and Boxing Page 5


Ali's place in boxing history as one of the greatest fighters ever is
secure. His final record of 56 wins and 5 losses with 37 knockouts has
been matched by others, but the quality of his opponents and the man-
ner in which he dominated during his prime place him on a plateau with
boxing's immortals. Ali's most tangible ring assets were speed, superb
footwork, and the ability to take a punch. But perhaps more important,
he had courage and all the intangibles that makes a great fighter.

perhaps no sport in the United States has a
history more steeped in tradition and lore
than baseball. And in baseball, more than
any other sport, the contributions and
accomplishments of the multitude of black
players is superbly documented. But none
more so than Jackie Robinson!


Baseball


Jackie was born in Cairo,
Georgia in 1919, the son of
sharecroppers. Twenty-eight
years later he engineered
the integration of profession-
al sports in America by shat-
tering the color barrier in
baseball. He overcame
enormous obstacles in his 10
year career to become one,
of baseball's most exciting,
and dazzling players.

After baseball, Jackie con-
tinued his fight to improve
the quality-of life not only for
African-Americans, but for
society as a whole. By
becoming the first black
vice president of a major
American corporation, he
continued to open doors for
African Americans.

But black baseball has a his-
tory that precedes Jackie


Robinson. During the period
between the Civil War and
1890, many African-
Americans played alongside
white athletes on minor
league and major league
teams.

The Negro Leagues
Although the original
National Association of Base
Ball Players, formed in 1867,
had banned black athletes,
by the late 1870s several
African-American players
were active on the rosters of
white, minor league teams.
But, most of these players
eventually fell victim to
regional prejudices and an
unofficial color ban after
brief stays with white teams.

The first black professional
baseball team was formed
in 1885 when, the Babylon

Jackie Robinson's enormous talent helped lead the
Brooklyn Dodgers to six pennants and one World
Series Championship. The ultimate honor was
bestowed on Jackie when he was inducted into the
National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962 in his first
year of eligibility
Black Panthers, were spotted by a
white businessman from Trenton, New
Jersey, Walter Cook. Cook renamed
the team the Cuban Giants so that he
could attract more white fans.

Jacksonville
Shortly after the Giants' formation, the
Jacksonville, Florida newspaper, The
Leader, assembled the first Negro
League, the Southern League of Base
Ballists. The Southern League was com-
prised of 10 teams: the Memphis
Eclipse, the Georgia Champions of
Atlanta, the Savannah Broads, the
Memphis Eurekas, the Savannah
Lafayettes, the Charleston Fultons, the
Jacksonville Athletics, the New Orleans
Unions, the Florida Clippers of
Jacksonville and the Jacksonville
Macedonias. Unfortunately the league
fell deep in debt and lasted only one
year.

By 1900 there were no black players in

the minor league circuits.
Without an announcement,
a gentlemen's agreement
had been made. Black play-
ers would not play organ-
ized baseball with
white players.

That rule remained in
effect for the next forty-
five years. The color
barrier was set squarely
in place.

There were 200-plus all-
black teams that per-
formed throughout the
country from the early Satch
1880s forward. The began

developed in the Midwest.
Teams like the Chicago
Giants and Kansas City
Monarchs became a chal-
lenge to the Eastern clubs
like the Brooklyn Royal
Giants and Cuban Stars.

In the South, black baseball

played with the Birmingham Black
Barrons and the Kansas City Stars. After
baseball he later returned to Florida and
was the first black basketball coach at
William Raines High School; In 1969, he
was Coach of the Year! For the past seven
years, Reverend Hair has been the senior

By the end of World War I
black baseball had
become, perhaps, the num-
ber one entertainment
attraction for urban black
populations throughout the
country. It was at that time
that Andrew "Rube" Foster,
owner of the Chicago
American Giants and blqck
baseball's most influential
personality, determined that
the time had arrived for a
truly organized and stable
Negro league.

Under Foster's leadership,
the Negro National League

eight teams, including the
Chicago American Giants,
Chicago Giants, Cuban
Stars, Dayton Marcos, Detroit
Stars, Indianapolis ABCs,

Negro League
Baseball was fre-
netic from the
1930s through the
1950s, when the
Negro Leagues
struggled, stag-
gered, exploded
and then col-
lapsed.

With the industrial
buildup associat-
ed with World War

Leagues shared in
the boom, draw-
ing record crowds
and paying
record wages to
keep big-name

the war came a

I t seems that every generation brings
forth at least one individual that sharp-
ens the focus on the hopes and
dreams of a part of our society. Such
was the impact of the world's best
know boxer Muhammad All. Ali was a
new kind of athlete, not a step-son of
the rags-to-riches genre of previous
black boxers. By the close of the 1960s,
Ali had become one of the most cele-
brated men on the planet, a hero in

the third'world, and in the
ghettoes of black
America. Placing his con-
victions before his career,
Ali became the heavy-
weight boxing champion
of the world, while acting
as an ambassador for the
emerging black power
movement. Gifted, per-
suasive, idiosyncratic, out-
spoken they threw
away the mold after Ali!

Ali won the gold medal
at the Rome Olympics in
1960. Boxing's so called
experts at the time didn't
think much of his boxing
skills. His head, eyes wide,
seemed to float above
the action. Rather than


slip a punch, the tradition-
al defensive move, it was
his habit to sway back,
bending at the waist -
an unorthodox tactic that
the experts questioned.

The boxing public also
had a hard time believing
Ali was for real. His first
fight for the heavyweight
championship in Miami
against Sonny Liston was
sparsely attended.

In the early rounds the
fight was even but by the
fifth and sixth rounds, Clay
had Liston. Liston slumped
on his stool at the end of
the sixth. The Muhammad
Ali era was here!


The Brown Bomber Joe Lewis
On the evening of June 22, 1938, the world turned
towards two fighters in a ring in Yankee Stadium.
Movie houses paused their films and broadcast the
event over loudspeakers. In a country of 130 million
people, seventy million Americans listened to the box-
ing match. "Everyone stopped and listened to the
fight. Even the streetcars stopped," remembers Ferdie
Pacheco.

The bout pitted the twenty-eight-year-old son of an
Alabama sharecropper against the son of a Hamburg
sailor. On the eve of the fight, American champion
Joe Louis visited the White House, where President
Roosevelt gripped his arm and said, "These are the

the Atlantic,
Joseph Goebbels
had invited boxer
Max Schmeling's
wife to listen to
the fight as it was
broadcast live. It
was to be the
second shortest
championship
match in history.

While the world
listened, Joe Louis
KOed Schmeling
in just over two

Track and Field may be the purest of all
individual sports. Where..competition
among individuals is often secondary to
the competition for a more personal met-
rir, a record or national honor. Black ath-

Hitler viewed African-
Americans as inferior and
chastised the United States
for stooping to use these
"non-humans." .

Despite the endless racial
epithets and the constant
presence of the red ands-
black swastika, Owens
made Hitler eat his words
with four gold medals.

The first gold was.4 the 100
meters, where Owens
edged out teammate Ralph
Metcalfe in a time of 10.3
seconds. Gold number two
came in the long jump,
where he fouled on his first
two attempts. One was just
a practice run where he
continued down the runway
into the pit, but German offi-
cials didn't buy it and count-
ed it as a jump.

The third gold was in the
200-meter dash, where he
defeated, among others,

Jews win gold in Berlin.

the Owens-led U.S. team
rolled to victory in a world
record time of 39.8 seconds
and Owens' magicql

Wilma Rudolph
Wilma Rudolph was born ~ith the odds
stacked against her. She was born pre-
mature into a large family at a time
when African American babies were
denied access to the best doctors and
hospitals. As a child, she was sick with
a long list of diseases including pneu-
monia and scarlet fever, which left her
left leg partially deformed.

Despite all of these obstacles, Wilma
Rudolph grew up to achieve a list of
accomplishments longer than the list
of her childhood ailments.

At the 1960 Rome Olympics, Rudolph
became "the fastest woman in the
world" and the first American woman
to win three gold medals in one
Olympics. She won the 100- and 200-
meter races and anchored the U.S.
team to victory in the 4 x 100-meter
relay, breaking records along the way.

She was named by the Associated
Press as the U.S. Female Athlete of the
Year for 1960, She is remembered as
one of the fastest women in track and
as a source of great inspiration for
generations of African-American ath-
letes.

Tiger Woods is the kind of athlete who
comes along not once in a generation,
but perhaps once in tle history of a sport.
For the last decade, Tiger Woods has dom-
inated professional golf so completely that
he has changed the game and come to
exemplify the pursuit of excellence. In his


own words Tiger says
That's the essence of

Born Eldrick Woods on
December 30, 1975 in
Cypress, California. Woods
studied at Stanford University
and won amateur US golf
titles before turning profes-
sional in 1996. He shot to
fame after winning the US
Masters at Augusta in 1997 -
with a record score of 270 -
at the age of 21. Woods was
the first African-American to
doi so, as well as the
youngest.

In his first appearance at the
B tish Open later that year,
Woods equalled the Troon
course record of 64.

But in terms of the game
itself, there is no argument:

tion of focus, which explains
why he will be by-passing

ing, there have been few

changes in the color of the
game since he came on the
tour. Fact is, there are fewer
black golfers on tour today
than when Tiger was born.

Golf is a still a sport that
remains inherently closed off
to lower incomes and that
isn't easily played in neigh-
borhoods and barrios the
way basketball and baseball
might be. The geographical
limitations are obvious.

That, however doesn't
change the fact that the
increased diversity of the
game can easily be seen at
the driving ranges and pub-
lic courses across the coun-
try. Eventually, one would
expect, this will flow to the
PGA Tour.

When looking at Tiger
Woods, you see a person
who came to grips early on
with his talent and has never
appeared remotely afraid to
take responsibility for his
career. Tiger released a
Media Statement to the
press regarding his racial
heritage with a promise
that it would be his only
statement. It was!

Right from the start, Woods


In 1997 Woods at age 21 became the youngest player
and the first of African or Asian descent ever to win the
Masters Tournament, winning by a record margin of 12
strokes. Winner of five other PGA tournaments in 1997,
Woods became the youngest player ever ranked first in
world golf competition. On July 23, 2000, Woods became
the fifth player in golf history, and the youngest, to
achieve a career grand slam of the four major champi-
onships


was a breath of
fresh air, in every
respect. When he
appeared at the
Masters as an
amateur, Jim
Nantz of CBS
asked him
whether he had a
special obligation


to be a role
model for "minori-
ty kids." The
expected answer
was, Yes. The
actual answer
was, "No. I have
an obligation to
all kids."


MEDIA STATEMENT:
The purpose of this statement is to explain my
heritagefor the benefit of members of the media who may
be seeing me play for the first time. It is the final and
only 'comment I will make regarding the issue.
My parents have taught me to always be proud
of my ethnic background. Please rest assured that is, and
always will be, the case past, present, and future.
The media has portrayed me as African-America; some-
times, Asian. In fact, I am both.
Yes, I am the product of two great cultures, one
African-American and the other Asian.
On my father's side, I am African-American. On
my mother's side, I am Thai. Truthfully, Ifeet veryfortu-
nate, and EQUALLYPROUD, to be both African-
American and Asian!
The critical and fundamental point is that ethnic
background and/or composition should NOT make a dif-
ference. It does NOT make a difference to me. The bottom
line is that I am an American...and proud of it!
That is who I am and what I am. Now, with your
cooperation, I hope I can just be a golfer and a human
being.
Signed,
Tiger Woods
