Striving to Make a
Cease the Fear
Obama Is Here
Raises $25 Million for Campaign

Many are wondering how Senator Obama was able to raise
$25 million. Well, Samantha Giggetts is seven years old.
She has her own bank account that she barely withdraw
money from. Her attitude is, "Let the money in the bank
stay. I will use current funds on hand if I want something."
However, when it comes to Senator Obama, her attitude is
different and she told her parents to withdraw $100 from her
savings account "to give to Obama so that he can win."
If giving donations to a candidate is indicative of the pub-
lic's desire than the first quarter reporting is making a strong
statement for the the presidential candidates. Senator Hilary
Clinton, the former first lady, has raised only one million
more than the person who is considered as her strongest
rival. She reported contributions totalling $26 million while
Senator Obama reported $25 millions. However, she has
transferred $10 million from her Senate account. Behind
Clinton and Obama is Senator John Edwards with $14 mil-
lion. The Republican candidates with the largest amount are
Gov. Mitt Romney with $23 millions and Mayor Giuliani
with $15 million.
Dorothy Pitman Hushes was hostess for one Obama's fund
raising house parties and has organized a group called the
Democratic Rappers. When Obama was in Florida and
heard the group, he said, "I like that." Her desire is to have
the rappers tour throughout Florida.

Felon Rights Restored
Can Vote, Serve on Jury,Get Occupational
Licenses, Hold Public Office No Guns
Florida is no longer one of the five Southern states that ban
felons' rights to life, leaving behind, Alabama, Georgia,
Mississippi and Kentucky where such law was activated after
then Civil War to keep African-Americans who may have been
incarcerated from voting. During his campaign, Governor
Crist committed to make a change and on Thursday, approval
was given that will allow more than 600,000 felons in Florida,
automatic restoration of their civil rights. Such a move did not
meet the approval of the state's Attorney Gereral Bill
McCollum and many law enforcement entities, including
Sheriff Rutherford, who wanted each felon to wait at least five
years to prove themselves 'ready.'
There are three levels of approval.
Level One will have an expedited restoration of civil rights.
This level includes ex-offenders who have committed less
severe crimes and have never been convicted of: murder,
attempted murder, attempted felony murder, manslaughter,.
DUI manslaughter, sexual battery, attempted sexual battery,,
lewd or lascivious battery, attempted lewd or lascivious bat-
tery, molestation, conduct or exhibition; lewd or lascivious
offense upon or in the presence of an elderly or disabled per-

Study Links Child Care to Behavior Problems
A recent study showed that the more a child spends in
child care, the more likely the sixth grade teacher will
experience behavior problems with that child and, chil-

Increase for Blacks
Jacksonville Still Hot
Market for Minorities
Although Georgia's home buyer's mar-
ket is still affordable, the state's foreclosure
rate is among the highest in the nation, and
the percentage of African Americans own-
ing homes is just 49.9 percent compared to
76.7 percent for Whites. This conspicuous
gap is due in part to some of the fallacies
associated with homeownership including
the belief that one must have a near perfect
credit rating as well as a 20 percent down
payment in order to qualify for a mortgage.
Other myths are that candidates must have a
checking or savings account and years of
employment in your background.
Compounding these fallacies is the egre-
gious problem of predatory lending which
has relentlessly targeted minority homeown-
ers, low-income residents and the elderly for
years with the underhanded objective of
reclaiming these homes once they go into
The National Urban League has initiated
a six-point Homebuyer's Bill of Rights to
boost homeownership in the United States,
especially among African Americans.
"Greater homeownership means greater
personal wealth, which, in turn, means
greater economic empowerment, the civil
right of the 21st Century," National Urban
League President Marc Morial said in a
speech at the National Press Club in
Washington, D.C. "It is also helpful in clos-
ing the financial gap that exists between
blacks and whites in the United States."
In 2004, African-American homeowner-
ship hit a historic high nearly 50 percent,
compared to 76 percent of white Americans,
slipping to 47.9 percent in 2006, thanks in
part to increased foreclosures that are threat-
ening decades of progress.
Through six major policy recommenda-
tions, the National Urban League
Homebuyer's Bill Of Rights is designed to
minimize four major obstacles standing in
the way of more Americans owning their
own homes: 1) lack of net savings for down-
payments and closing costs; 2) lack of infor-
mation on how to shop for homes and apply
for loans; 3) lack of quality affordable units
in livable locations; and 4) lack of consumer

2. The Right to High-Quality Homeownership
Recommendation Redesign of an industry-wide
system that integrates pre- and post-purchase home-
ownership education and counseling; and expansion of
HUD's budget for housing counseling from $42 million
to $80 million in FY 08.
3. The Right to Truth and Transparency in Credit
Recommendation Demystify the credit reporting
system through creation of a public education and
awareness campaign about credit scoring and its impact
on wealth creation, and establishment of a penalty
structure for credit reporting bureaus that maintain
inaccurate client files.
4. The Right to Production of Affordable Housing
for Working Families
Recommendation Cities and other municipalities-
should through zoning and tax incentives require that at
least 30% of all new market-rate construction be made
available for purchase and rental by households com-
prising the locality's working families.

lenders to make predatory loans; a fair, competitive
market that responsibly provides credit to consumers;

into their own homes if we fail to arm them
with the tools needed to sustain homeowner-
ship. Far too many first-time homebuyers
with limited financial experience have fall-
en into the trap of predatory lending where
unscrupulous mortgage brokers steer them
into unsuitable and exploitive mortgage
products and turn their American Dream
into the American Nightmare. The National
Urban League Homebuyer's Bill of Rights
seeks to reverse and eliminate this trend."
"Truth is that 25-40 percent of the people
getting sub prime loans could get an A-
paper loan," said Vaughn Irons, national
director of Freddie Mac, adding that Freddie
Mac's goal was to create 2,100 new home-
owners within the next 24 months through
the 21 Step Program.
Lending stature and resonance to the
issue, Dominique Wilkins, who grew up in
Baltimore, Maryland in a single parent
household with "eight brothers and sisters',"
said he was no stranger to life's challenges
having spent much of his early life "proving
the skeptics wrong." Even today, he noted,
he knew quite a few people whose homes
were foreclosed on them, which is why, he
feels so strongly about this issue.
"This is not a singular problem in this
city," it is a problem that "crosses all socio-
economic lines," he said, adding that it
"impacts African Americans and other
minorities" in particular. "If you can spend
$1,000 a month on rent, you can own your
own home," he pointed out.
Noting that while wealth derived from
homeownership was crucial, Georgia State
Senator Kasim Reed (D-35) said that what
was most important was the wealth "trans-
ferred to children and grandchildren." To
that end, he said Freddie Mac, which was
chartered by Congress in 1970, was instru-
mental in investing $115 billion in home
loans over the past 10 years.

African Americans increased at a rate 4.8

The market with the greatest growth in
African American home buying from 2004
to 2005 was Lakeland, Florida, with a 86%
increase -- 3.2 times greater than the 26.7%
increase in home purchase loans for Whites
in that metro area.
Ocala, Lakeland, Fort Myers, Orlando

Prostate Cancer Risks
Higher in Urban Blacks
Jacksonville Blacks Show More
Advanced Stages than Others
Inner-city black men are almost twice as likely to be"
diagnosed with prostate cancer as whites and are four times.
more likely to be in advanced stages of the disease at diag-
nosis, according to a new study led by University of Florida
The findings, call attention to the need to screen these
men early beginning at age 45 instead of 50 and to.
offer them ongping prostate cancer education, the
Prostate cancer remains the second-most-commonly
diagnosed cancer and the second-most-common cause of
cancer deaths in American men over age 45. Even so,
prostate cancer mortality rates in the United States have
been steadily declining during the past 10 years, thanks to:
serum prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, blood tests and:
But the researchers found a different situation for inner-
city men in Jacksonville, Fla.
"It all came about when we noticed that several patients:
we screened in Jacksonville were presenting with more
advanced disease than what we had seen in similarly sized:
settings namely Houston and Winston-Salem," said Dr.:
Charles Rosser, the study's senior author and an assistant:
professor of urology at the UofF Jacksonville. "Patients:
who presented in Houston and Winston-Salem had already;
been screened so thoroughly that they presented with.a lot:
earlier disease than what we saw here. We wanted to know:
why Jacksonville's numbers were so much higher."
Although several variables may be involved, Rosser:
thinks the cause is a lack of prostate cancer screening and:
ongoing education in inner-city Jacksonville.
"Other communities our size have had fairly large:
screening initiatives first directed to the general communi-:
ty and then directed to minorities in the inner city," he said.:
"Here in Jacksonville we didn't have anything like that until
2003, when UF College of Medicine-Jacksonville urolo-:
gists, in partnership with the Duval County Health:
Department, began offering free screenings at UF's affiliat-
ed. hospital, Shands Jacksonville."
Using the data from these screenings, the seven-member:
research team set out to assess the detection rate of prostate:
cancer and disease stage at diagnosis. Researchers collected:
and analyzed clinical and pathological data from the biop-
sies of 368 men 52 percent white, 42 percent black, 5 per-
cent Hispanic and 1 percent Asian. Because of the small
numbers, Hispanics and Asians were excluded for study pur-
Sposes. The researchers were surprised to find these men
were four times as likely to have advanced cancer, Rosser
"The chance of usually presenting with advanced disease
is maybe 5 percent nationwide," he said. "Our study sample
showed 16 percent for blacks and 3.8 percent for whites -
a statistically significant finding;"
When patients don't begin treatment until cancer is
advanced, the cure rate drops dramatically.
Annual screenings should include the PSA blood test and
an exam, with biopsy and further examination recommend-
ed for a PSA level above 4.0, Rosser said.
Education is key for these men, according to Rosser.
"Of course, we need to stress the importance of annual
screenings, but we also need to let them know why they're
being screened and explain that, as black men, statistically
they're at higher risk for the disease," he said. "Education
must go hand in hand with screening."
The study identifies a disparity in prostate cancer screen-
ing and detection among men of differing social strata that is
especially worrisome at a time when the underserved -
especially blacks stand to benefit most' from such pro-
grams, Rosser said.
What are the Symptoms of
There are usually no specific signs or symptoms of
early prostate cancer -- which is why prostate screening
is so important. An annual physical examination,
prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, and digital
rectal exam (DRE) provide the best chance of identify-
ing prostate cancer in its earliest stages.
The following signs and symptoms may be caused
by prostate cancer, or by a variety of other conditions.
Consult your physician right away if you are experienc-
ing any/all of the following symptoms:
weak or interrupted flow of urine
urinating often (especially at night)
difficulty urinating or holding back urine i
inability to urinate
pain or burning when urinating
blood in the urine or semen
nagging pain in the back, hips, or pelvis
As a man gets older, his prostate may grow bigger
and block the flow of urine, or interfere with sexual
function. Although an enlarged prostate gland a con-
dition called benign prostate hyperplasia may not be
life-threatening, it may require treatment with medicine
or surgery to relieve symptoms. This common benign
prostate condition, which is not cancer, can cause many
of the same symptoms as prostate cancer.

Why Don't Black Men Achieve As Well Academically?
by Makebra M. Anderson
NNPA, National Correspondent
WASHINGTON (NNPA) On campuses across the nation, it is becoming difficult to dis-
tinguish between all-female and co-ed universities. Often, the student government president
is female. It is not uncommon for the editor of the school newspaper to be a woman. Walk
into any classroom and the overwhelming majority of the students are females.
While unattached single males might applaud that disparity, the absence of Black men in
meaningful numbers on college campuses is troubling to many and has profound implica-
tions for the future for Black America. If this gender imbalance continues, it could impact
future family structures, the type of role models available to Black boys and the vibrancy
of the African-American community.
Why are Black males failing to achieve at the same level as females?
"Boys are much more influenced by the streets. The biggest competitors to education are
rap, drugs and sports," says Jawanza Kunjufu, a Chicago-based expert on Black males.
"When you think about it, of the number of Black males in college, what percent of them
are athletes? Sistas don't seem to be tempted by sports, rap and drugs. There is no question
that more brothas lean towards faster money."
Another problem according to Kunjufu is the lack of Black male teachers.
"We really have to look at why 83 percent of the school teachers in elementary are White
females, 6 percent are African-American and 1 percent are African-American males,"
explains Kunjufu, who heads African-American Images, a group that publishes and distrib-
utes books that promote self-esteem, collective values, liberation, and skill development.
"America has designed a female teaching style. There is a possibility that a male can go K-
8 [from kindergarten to eighth grade] and never experience a Black teacher."
That also troubles Robert Lemons, dean of the School of Education at Florida A&M
"Whenever we have the opportunity, we talk to the legislatures and school superintendents
asking them to make teaching more attractive for the male. We don't get much response,"
he says. "This has been a trend in education for a long time. Before the 1980s, most edu-
cated Blacks were in teaching. This was when we couldn't go into any other occupations,
but as soon as other occupations opened up, Black men left and went into professions they
felt made more money."
In. 2004, there was a large gap between male and female teachers, according to the
National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Of the 6.2 million teachers, approximate-
ly 4.5 million (71 percent) were women and 1.7 million (29 percent) were men. Of all teach-
ers, only 5.1 million (8 percent) were Black.
"Since 1954 there has been a 66 percent decline in Black teachers," Kunjufu, who wrote
the four-book series, Countering the Conspiracy to destroy Black boys, said. The paucity of
African-American teachers hampers the normal development of Black males, Kunjufu
Derrick Lawson, a 5th grade teacher in Los Angeles has the same opinion.
"I didn't major in education during college, but I decided to go into the profession after
realizing I was going.nowhere with my job at the DMV [Deplartment of Motor Vehicles],"
Lawson said in an interview. "Once I started teaching, I was surprised at how few Black
male teachers there are in California and how much time you spend mentoring as opposed
Lawson, a Black man, says the responsibility of male teachers goes far beyond the class-
"When you are the only male figure some of your student see, it puts additional pressure
on you to be their teacher, friend and parent. Many of my male students come to me because
I am the only one they know that's not on the streets, selling drugs or gang banging."
Because Lawspn is the only "father figure" some of his students have, it's hard for him to
leave even though the pressure sometimes seems overwhelming.
"When I started teaching I thought that it would be a typical eight to four day and when I
realized that it was almost 24-hours I thought about going back to the DMV. What has kept
me in the profession for these past five years is my heart. I see first hand how not having a
positive male influence can destroy a child's life and I am committed to making sure that I
do all I can to ensure that these kids get a fair shot at success-even if it means sacrificing
my own wants."
Kunjufu says the lack of positive male role models-may even limit their ability to excel
personally and academically.
"Thirty-two percent of our children have their father in the home. Girls have their mother
as a role model, but more than half of boys have no one. Another problem is that many
mothers raise their daughters and love their sons. They teach their daughters to be more
responsible and more focused, he said."
According to the Census, the number of female-headed homes is higher than 32 percent.
In the Black community, 44 percent of homes are headed by a woman, 23.4 percent in the
Hispanic community, 13.2 percent in the Asian community and 12 percent in the White
In six year's the number of female-headed households in the Black community jumped by
14 percent. In 1999, 30.1 percent of households were headed by women, in 2000, 29.7 per-
cent, in 2001, 28.7 percent, in 2002, 28.8 percent and in 2003, 29.7 percent of households
were run by women.
Many feel that these numbers are a direct correlation to the achievement of Black students
and according to statistics..
In 2001, there slightly more college aged men than women. The Census reports that there
were 14.3 million men and 13.6 million women between 18 and 24 years old. HBCU cam-
puses did not follow that trend. During that year, the total fall enrollment in HBCUs was
289,985, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Women made
up 177,111 (61 percent) and men 112,874 (39 percent) of that total-a difference of 64,237
Kunjufu believes that early intervention is key.
"I still believe that it's best to correct the problem K-12 [from kindergarten to 12th grade].
How are you going to feed the college community if you don't develop students before they
get to college?" he asks. "Older students could mentor younger students and plant seeds.
Most brothas don't have mentors, even on college campuses. A progressive president of a
university would make sure seniors mentor younger classmen."Lemons agrees.
"Education is friendlier to females than males. Those students that do better in school are
students that can pay attention. Females are more acclimated or predisposed to do that bet-
ter. I'm afraid that the other things outside of school have a much stronger pull on men," he
Kunjufu says there is no time to focus on what we can't change.
"We need to point out that there are 1 million brothas competing for seven full-time jobs
in the NBA, only 22 rappers are really getting paid, and drug dealers don't have a retirement
plan," he said.
Although there are currently 200,000 more women in college than men, at one time men
outnumbered women on university campuses. The census reports that in 1950 there were
almost 226,000 more men in college than women. Ten years later, that number decreased
but men still out numbered women by nearly 116,000.
In 1989 things changed. During this school year, the number of female students jumped,
surpassing men by six percent. In 1989 there were 1,051,344 students in college-559,648
(53 percent) were women and 491,696 (47 percent) were men. Since then, the gap in male
and female enrollment has continued to increase, especially at HBCUs.
According to Kunjufu, unless the African-American community embraces Black men,
their future is dismal.
"In 1980, there were 100,000 brothas incarcerated. In 2005 there is 1.5 million. The mil-
lion dollar question becomes can the Black community survive if one of three of our men
is involved somehow in the penal institution. The answer is no, so we need to start protect-
ing these brothers."

As part of the Easter

Christ by crucifixion, is

just before Easter.
Through his death, burial

PROJECT SOS 3rd ANNUAL FATHER DAUGHTER DINNER DATE HAS
Jacksonville, FL: On
Saturday, March 3rd, Erika
Harold, Miss America 2003
and her father, Robert
Harold, spoke to 500 atten-
dees at the Third Annual
Father Daughter Dinner
Date. "We are in a crisis
situation with our youth
right now, the record atten-
dance demonstrates our
families needing good role
models and the tools to
avoid risk behaviors," says
Dr. Pam Mullarkey, Project
SOS founder. Their speech
was heard by females
grades 6 through college
with their fathers and/or
male mentors about the
importance of avoiding risk
behavior such as drugs,
alcohol, sex and violence,
and the importance of a
father's role in helping
daughters make healthy
choices. Their message
clfallenged those attending
to stay focused on their
goals and to set high expec-
tations for themselves.
Erika spoke about such
things as girls wearing
clothes that make them gain
respect from others, focus-
ing on goals and not boys,
and the importance of dat-
ing guys who respect your
values'and have similar
ones. Her Father told Dads
in the crowd to ask for for-
giveness when you have
made a mistake, to not be
proud, be humble, and to
remember that the greatest
gift they can give their
daughters is not money or
things, but themselves. The
event was a great success
and proved to be very inspi-
rational for many in the
"Project SOS has the
recipe for success for
teenagers because they use
healthy role models to
inspire our daughters and I
want my daughter to be
around them. They have
role models from all walks
of life and all are abstinent
from sex, drugs and alco-
hol. The Project SOS staff
are who our children need
to be surrounded by," said
Lt. Commander Jim Pate,
who works at NAS. He and
his daughter Brittany, an
Orange Park High School
cheerleader, science fair
winner and class officer,
both greatly appreciated
Miss America's speech.
Brittany, who is also Miss
Capital City, is abstinent
from sex, drugs and alcohol
and will now be a volunteer
speaking to other students
about her choices.
The audience laughed
as MC Dan Hicken, accom-
panied by his Daughter,
Danielle, was crowned
"Mr. America" by Erika
Harold (see below). These
and other memories, such
as Fathers writing their
daughters special notes (see
below), will last a lifetime.

organization committed to
assisting our youth to make
"Best Choices" in choosing
to refrain from pre-marital
sex, drugs, alcohol, abusive
relationships, violence and
suicide. Project SOS also
provides parents with edu-
cational materials and
resources to help reduce
high risk behaviors.

Ask Deanna! is an advice column known for its fearless approach to reality-based
I broke up with my boyfriend over something silly and now I
regret my actions. I thought he was cheating on me with my
best friend but they were actually buying me a gift. I said
some horrible things to both of them and they're not speaking
to me. I want to get back with him but I think he is looking
at my friend because she seems more mature than me. What
should I do if they start dating? I know it's my fault but it's
going to tear me apart.
Made a Mistake Atlanta, GA
You obviously have trust issues if you can't feel secure with your mate or your
friends. Your foolish tongue has caused you to lose your relationship and your friend.
The only thing you can do is apologize to both parties and ask your boyfriend for
another chance. If he says no and goes with your buddy, then you learned a valuable
lesson and if they'll do this in your.face, you didn't need them anyway.
I allowed myself to get pregnant because my boyfriend convinced me that we would
be together and we were going to get married. Now I am almost ready to deliver the
baby and he has changed his mind. He moved out of my house and now he's not
working and living with his mother. I am so upset and don't know what to do. How
do I handle this situation?
Anika On-Line Reader
You lost your sense when you decided to fall for the oldest trick in the book. There is
no way you should've become pregnant without a husband and a plan. You're getting
ready to be stuck with a baby, a bill for 18 years and a stupid looking dead beat dad.
You need to look at your resources, get your money and education together and grow
up. When the baby is born, have a DNA test, get your child support and be ready to
raise your child and keep it moving.
My mother is being taken advantage of by her best friend. My mother is retired has
plenty of money saved up and she's enjoying the finer things in life. Her best friend
is a moocher and makes my mom pay for everything. My mother is lonely and does-
n't have any friends so she thinks nothing of it. This woman is going through her
money left and right and I know she's going to look up and one day be broke. How
do I get through to her?
Concerned Daughter Oklahoma City, OK
Your mother is enjoying life and her friend. Before you place judgment or get in the
middle of things ask your mom if she's preparing for a rainy day. If she is, you can
rest assured that she knows what she's doing and is planning her finances wisely.
You're on the outside looking in and have no idea of their friendship. You can calm
down and chill and let your mom and her girlfriend do their thing and feel secure
knowing that if she needs you, she'll let you know.

Thel LlMayor; 's* Desk
For Mega-Churches, The Next
Step Is Ticketing
Several months ago I wrote an article on
mega-churches. There are about 1.100 mega-
churches in the United States, several over 20
years old. And I am quite honestly intrigued with
the imagination, depth and breadth of these awe- t
some structures and the ones on the architect
charts. Mega-churches expand and grow communities and represent anchors
for spiritual development.
Now surprisingly, one of them has decided that in order to accommodate the
regular members and the increased attendance for Easter services, ticketing is
the answer. And the buzz is thunderous. Is this 21st century-style worship or is
this a downhill threat to our church service values?
During Holy Week, there are eight services scheduled in this mega-nest.
How do you get a ticket? Really easy. Tickets are available online at the Eagle
Brook Church in Minnesota for members to reserve and print out. Members can
pick up tickets at the ticket booth, which is located next to Information Central
in the Lower Lobby. Well, what time is the ticket booth open? Good question.
The ticket booth is only open during weekend worship services. Tickets are not
available during the week. Seats are not assigned, there is no limit to how many
tickets you can pick up, nor is there a charge for the tickets. It is easy to figure
out that this church is technologically driven, status absorbed and solidly root-
ed in big playhouse confusion.
I have to agree that many regular church members have "their seats" in
church. And on these heavily attended Sundays they arrive early in order to
secure their regular seats, which in some unexplainable sense gives the optimal
experience. If they were to compromise and change seats on any Sunday in
church, it would be less than an optimal experience. This feeling of "it's mine"
is a universal trait among Christians. Anyway, it is interesting to observe that
Easter services have a larger attendance than Christmas services. Most people
consider Easter the more sacred time, the more holy of services. Some equate
it with sanctification and purification even though, sadly, we live in an age
of distrust and suspicion of religion, religious leaders and religious issues. But
successfully, religion is in the news and church attendance is slightly up.
But back to this ticketing. It is noteworthy that the public relations depart-
ment asks that, if at all possible, you should attend the service for which you
have your ticket. Make that decision ahead of time. If you change your mind,
there is an exchange booth set up where you can exchange your ticket for
another service time. I became amused at the next set of instructions. All the
services are the same, but it is recommended that you choose one of the less tra-
ditional service times, such as Saturday at 3 p.m. (Wonder who thought of that
idea?) A lot of thought and planning was put into this upstaging of normal
events. For example, let's assume nothing works in the way of your family
planning for attending Easter services and you decide at the last minute that you
are going. You can conveniently check the ticket update screen to see which
services still have seats available.
Those who just show up for Easter services will be accommodated. No one
will be turned away. But you do need to bring your ticket with you. What if I
forget my ticket? Will I be able to get in? Yes, you will still be able to get in,
just come to the service you picked up tickets for. The ticket, huh? Well, I can
honestly say this is a growing trend I can live without.

Committee to Stop the Violence
Mayor John Peyton
We've created a Committee to Stop Violence in
Jacksonville, and I am asking every person to join.
To become a member, the only thing you need to do
is something -- as an individual -- to stop violence.
And you can start by asking yourself. a question:
"What can I do to help stop the violence?"
The answers are endless. You can call police if
you witness a dangerous situation. You can use
your judgment and influence to help someone in distress, or you can comfort a
victim of a crime. Stop a fight between your children, don't yell at your spouse,
write an anti-violence song or create art that inspires people to think about peale
- these are all ways to play a role in eliminating violent behaviors and environ-
This is not to say that citizens should take crime fighting into their own
hands, especially if their own safety is at risk. By making a call to the
Jacksonville Sheriffs Office, helping a victim until police get there, or identify-
ing a perpetrator, you have done something to help.
As mayor, I am committed to doing everything I can to stop crime in
Jacksonville, along with the sheriff, the state attorney, the citycouncil and count-
less other community leaders. Our efforts will make a difference. But imagine the
enormous impact 800,000 people working together can have on crime. If citi-
zens make a promise to stop violence where they live and work, the efforts of
government and the justice system will be multiplied.
Once you are a part of stopping violence, you are a member of the Committee
to Stop Violence. Notify the Mayor's Office of Faith and Community-Based and
you'll receive a purple hat or t-shirt that reads "Enough is Enough. Stop the
Violence." These hats and shirts are a sign of solidarity against crime in our city.
As your mayor, I am asking you do your part and become the newest mem-
ber of the Committee to Stop Violence.
For more information on the Committee to Stop the Violence, contact the City
of Jacksonville's Office of Faith and Community Based Partnerships at 630-

Errors in U.S. Hospitals
Continue to Increase
We have all read the tragic stories about patients dying
from the wrong medication while hospitalized. Or about the
patient having the wrong limb amputated. Well, the situation
does not appear to be improving.
Patient safety incidents in U.S. hospitals increased by
three percent overall from 2003 to 2005, and the error gap
between the nation's best- and worst-performing hospitals
remained wide, a report released this week found.
America's top rated hospitals had 40 percent lower rates
of medical errors than the poorest-performing hospitals, the
The fourth annual HealthGrades Patient Safety in
American Hospitals Study, put out by HealthGrades, an
independent health care ratings company, examined over 40
million Medicare hospitalization records at almost 5,000
hospitals from 2003 to 2005.
The results paint a picture of U.S. Hospital errors that
continue to rise.
There were 1.16 million patient safety incidents among
Medicare patients during the three years of the study. That
works out to an incidence rate of 2.86 percent or almost 3
out of every 100 folks visiting the hospital.
Medicare patients involved in
one or more safety incidents
had one chance in four of
During those three years, there were 247,662 potentially
preventable deaths in U.S. hospitals. Medicare patients
involved in one or more safety incidents had one chance in
four of dying.
The excess cost to Medicare associated with patient safe-
ty incidents was $8.6 billion from 2003 to 2005.
Ten of 16 types of patient-safety incidents increased over
the three years of the study, by an average of almost 12 per-
cent. The greatest increases were in post-operative sepsis
which is a serious medical condition, resulting from the
immune response to a severe infection. In the United States,
sepsis is the leading cause of death in non-coronary ICU
patients, and the tenth most common cause of death overall
according to 2000 data from the Centers for Disease Control,
Incidents with the highest occurrence rates were decubi-
tus ulcer; failure to rescue; and post-operative respiratory
If all hospitals had performed at the same level as the
top-rated hospitals, about 206,286 patient safety incidents
and 34,393 Medicare patient deaths could have been avoid-
ed, resulting in $1.74 billion in savings.
"The cost of medical errors at American hospitals in both
mortality and dollar terms continues to be significant, and
the 'chasm in quality' between the nation's top and bottom
hospitals, which HealthGrades has documented in this and
other studies, remains," the study's primary author, Dr.
Samantha Collier, HealthGrades' chief medical officer, said.
"But the nation's best-performing hospitals are providing
benchmarks for the hospital industry, exercising a vigilance
that resulted in far fewer in-hospital incidents among the
Medicare patients studied," Collier said.

Honored In DC
In 1939 Europe was in flames and the Nazi war machine
was marching forward. President Franklin D. Roosevelt
declared that the United States would be "Fortress
America." the last bastion of freedom for all people. We
were on the brink of entering the war, it was only a question
of where and when.
The military buildup was starting. The newly-formed
Army Air Corps was quite sure that no Black man could
learn to fly or even service a combat aircraft; however, the
Black press, the N.A.A.C.P., members of Congress and even
the White House disagreed with this position.
Under considerable pressure, the War Department relent-
ed and undertook what was called the "Noble Experiment."
It was tacitly considered to be doomed to failure especially
by those who initiated a separate and supposedly equal -
equal in rank, but not equal in privilege part of the Army
This during a time when the armed forces were so racial-
ly segregated even the Red Cross kept separate supplies of
blood one for whites, another for blacks. Their distin-
guished service is credited with influencing President
Truman to desegregate the U.S. military.
From this came the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, an all-
black corps of pilots that consisted of 994 African-American
pilots and a ground support group who gained fame during
WWII for their heroism escorting American bombers in
raids over Europe and North Africa.
Their record spoke for airmen. White American bomber
crews revered them as the "Black Redtail Angels" because
of the identifying red painted tail assembly of their aircraft,
and more importantly because they never lost a bomber to
enemy fighter interdiction.
The Black Airmen won one Silver Star, 150 Flying
Crosses, Legion of Merits and Red Star of Yugoslavia, and
left 66 of their comrades buried in foreign soil. Fighting the
adversities of a segregated military from the inside and an
awesome enemy from the outside, the "Black Air Force"
became a cohesive, motivated and dedicated group,
Last week, surviving members of the Tuskegee Airmen
went to Washington D.C. to receive the Congressional Gold
Medal in recognition of their unique military achievements
and the reform of the U.S. Armed forces their accomplish-

A dark cloud has passed over the sports world this
week. 1-.ddlic Robinson the legendary coach of
Graimbliing State University died late Tuesday night.
Eddie Robinson will cer-
tainly be remembered for his
records on the football field
sending over 200 plaN er
to the NFL along is enough to
make him a national hero.
But his true legacy lies more
in how he coached and the j
positive influence he had on
so many young men.- *
Eddie Robinson was a
humble man who once Coach Eddie Robinson
remarked that "The real
record I have set for over 50 years is the fact that I have
had one job and one wife," Robinson said.
When Eddie Robinson started coaching, he had no
paid assistants, no groundskeepers, no trainers and little
in the way of equipment. He had to line the field himself
and fix sandwiches for road trips because the players
could not eat in the "white only" restaurants of the South.
He was not bitter, however. "The best way to enjoy
life in America is to first be an American, and I don't
think you have to be white to do so," Robinson said.
"Blacks have had a hard time, but not many Americans
In the epilogue of his book Never Before Never
Again, Robinson says I'm just trying to be a good
American. Sometimes I am not sure what the definition
for that is, but when the Man calls me up to him, I want
to be ready to answer the call of "the Big Tiger" up
there, I want to hear God say, 'Eddie, you have been a
good person, a good husband and father, a good friend,
a good coach, and a good American."
I am sure that is exactly what the Coach will hear!
Before the cheers have faded away, the media is
questioning the future of basketball in Gainesville.
Billy Donovan's future along with those of jun-
iors Corey Brewer, Taurean Green, Al Horford and
Joakim Noah took center stage this week just hours
after the Gators had their names engraved on the third
national championship trophy in just one year.
Will those four unselfish young players who made a
collective decision to give us one more year move on to
Will Billy Donovan move on to Kentucky?
Will the Orange and Blue field a basketball team
next year? Of course, and it will probably be a con-
tender in the SEC. Florida has established itself as a
place to play basketball. But, without question it will be
a better place with Billy back.

On the court, he Gators were too much to
handle again last night, keeping their title as
defending Champions of the college basket-
ball world with an 84-75 victory over Ohio
State for their second straight NCAA title.
Not even a 25-point, 12-rebound stellar
performance by Ohio State's Greg Oden
could stop the Gator five from completing
the goal they set last year.
"These guys turned their backs on mil-
lions and they came back for a reason," ath-
letic director Jeremy Foley said." This is the
reason. They played all season with a target
on their back. It was hard to do. This is quite
an exclamation point."

Your Weekly Horoscopeid You Hear Abot?
I ~Did You, Hear About?
(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) You have a lot
---. of drive as the
but you need to
take time and
consider your tactics -- not
to mention the perspective
of others. Make sure you're
giving as well as taking,
too, for your karma's sake.
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, you've got cre-
ative power, intellectual
prowess and a knack for
finding people you click
with. Whatever you've got
in mind for the future, it
can start right now. From
Friday through the week-
end, however, you'll want
to say 'whoa' instead of
'let's go,' Charging forth
could put you in the middle
of a real issue, so proceed
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) You can make
ex cel lent
progress in all
of your endeav-
ors as the week
begins, but don't forget to
think big, too. Your larger
ideals come into play now
in very important ways.
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, life (and possi-
bly love) may not go quite
as smoothly. How will you
handle something or some-
one who stands in your
way? Have a strategy
rather than just a reaction
(or overreaction!). Ideas
flow from Friday through
the weekend, and the more
minds that are involved, the
better -- not to mention the
merrier. Friends, family
and community are espe-
cially fulfilling and fun
(Gemini May 21st thru
June 21st) If you've got a
in business or
expect some negotiations
as the week begins. Your
aims and theirs may need
some discussion and
adjusting to work together.
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, investigate some
radically different ideas,
meet some highly unusual
people and taste some
foods you've never tried --
it's all mind-expanding and
even life-changing now.
There's a lot going on from
Friday through the week-
end, both around you and
in your own mind and
heart. Find a creative outlet
while you process it.
(Cancer June 22nd thru
July 22nd) Beware of a
S"''.* withdraw as the
.. jP' week begins.
It's important to
stand your ground and
defend your position now,
whether it's at work or in
your personal life (or, right
now, even both). Be fair but
firm, and it'll go well.
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, fiscal matters are
in the stars -- so double-
check your numbers. If
anyone else is involved in
the finances, a frank discus-
sion may be in order. You
may be all over the place
from Friday through the
weekend, but it's in a very
good' way. Spread the love.
(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) Who's in charge
... at the beginning
of the week? In
you're sharing the power,
you'll need to make an extra
effort to cooperate -- or a
renegotiation may be in
order. Around Wednesday
and Thursday, progress can
be made in.all areas of your
life, but not via the tradi-
tional means. Take a holistic
approach and investigate
some unusual options -- the
obvious approach isn't the
best one. Some drama's in
the stars from Friday
through the weekend. Will
you join in or stay in the
audience, waiting for the
theatrics to sort themselves

Around Wednesday and
Thursday, you've got inno-
vative power that can have
you reexamining the way
you do things and even the
way you approach your
world as a whole. Give
yourself time to brainstorm,
and don't rule anything out
right away. You might as
well put aside your to-do list
from Friday through the
weekend, because getting
stuff done will be tough.

for you. Then the stars give
you a big boost around
Wednesday and Thursday,
both mentally and in terms
of your personal pulchri-
tude. These are fabulous
days for any romantic
endeavors -- you're brainy,
beautiful and beloved by
those you encounter. From
Friday through the week-
end, rather than kicking off
any new projects, finish off
a current one. The sense of

thru November 21st)
You're both a
,. i. power player
i .,i and a team
player as the
week begins, and when it
comes to your personal
life, your skills aren't too
shabby, either. Getting
some great stuff started
now is no problem.
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, however, issues
with family may emerge.
Be ready to cultivate
mutual respect yet set
good boundaries. If
you've got romance on
your mind, Friday through
the weekend is your time -
- plan a fantastic date or, if
you're single, get out and
shop around. Your passion
and uniqueness make you
22nd thru December 21st)
Money might be
on \our mind as
the week begins,
but don't neglect
your creative side. After
you figure out the finances,
head out to a gallery for
some imaginative inspira-
tion. Then, around
Wednesday and Thursday,
you can generate some fan-
tastic ideas -- and if you get
some fantastic people in on
it, the stars say the sky's the
limit. Friendships expand
now, too, maybe due to
your generosity of spirit.
From Friday through the
weekend, you're in a slower
mode. Keep plans low-key
and give yourself time to
22nd thru January 19th)
You're hot stuff
S as the week
begins, and not
in that by-
way: It's the effort you've
put in so far -- at work, in
relationships, into your
own health -- that's show-
ing so beautifully. You may
find yourself thinking of
the future around
Wednesday and Thursday,
and that's a good thing.,
Make sure a financial plan
is part of it. Then, from
Friday through the week-
end, give your practical
side a little time off. Open
your heart and your mind --
see new things, meet new
people. You'll love it, and
they'll love you.
thru February 18th) A
.,, approach isn't
S-' going to cut it as
the week begins,
whether it's at work or in
personal matters. Analyze
the situation and assess
what the best response is
(it's not the knee-jerk one).
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, however, your
intuition's right on and your
unusual ideas find many
listening (and impressed!)
ears. Capture your extra
brilliant concepts for later
use. Cultivate your com-
passionate side from Friday
through the weekend -- do a
friend a favor, volunteer
your time. It's heart-
expanding and good for
your karma, too.

VICTIM OF A SCAM/CON GAME/FLIM
FLAM An officer was dispatched to the 8400
block of Fury Drive in reference to a Con
Game/Flim Flam. Upon arrival he spoke with Ms.
LM (complainant) who stated she received a letter
in the mail from Pictet Financial with a check for
2,500 dollars. Ms. LM said the letter stated she won
50,000 dollars. Ms. LM stated she called the phone :
number on the letter and was told she needs to pre-
pay the taxes for her winnings by sending 2,500 dol-
lars by Western Union to New York, NY. Ms. LM
stated she contacted her mother who wired 2,600 dollars from California. Ms.
LM said she was told by the Pictet Financial representative to deposit the check
for 2,500 enclosed with the letter and to send 2, 300 dollars by Western Union to
New York, NY. Ms. LM stated she deposited the check and sent 2,300 dollars via
Western Union to New York, NY. Ms. LM stated she located Pictet Financial's
web site on the internet and called the number listed to verify this was a legiti-
mate company. Ms. LM stated she was told the name and number listed on the
letter was not affiliated with the Pictet Financial company. Ms. LM stated she
called the number listed on the letter and was told she needs to send an addition-
al 1,800 dollars to receive the entire 50,000 dollars. All come on!
FEAR OF RETALIATION An officer was dispatched to the 8600 block of
Vermanth Rd., due to information of a person lying in the yard cut. Upon arrival,
the officer observed the victim laying in the yard, he was unable to provide infor-
mation due to his condition. He was observed to have blood on the left side of
his body. Rescue 27 and Engine 19 responded to the scene. The victim was taken
to Shands where he was stated to have life-
-. threatening injuries, but was later downgraded
-" --.. to critical but stable. The officer then inter-
S.- viewed victim #2 who reported he and victim
#1 had been stabbed by the suspect due to an
argument over suspect's ex-girlfriend. Due to
fear of retaliation by the suspect and his rela-
tionship to the "Bloods," none of the witness-
es wanted to be directly associated with any
statements. The officer did not find the sus-
pect at his home, but advised his family to call
the police if he was to return.
HE BROKE A KEY OFF IN THE DOOR An officer was dispatched to the
7600 block of Blanding Blvd. in reference to a dispute involving a violation of
an injunction. Upon his arrival, he met with the victim, Ms. R outside of her
apartment. Ms. R stated that she has an injunction for protection against the sus-
pect Mr. D (father of her three children) for previous instances of domestic vio-
lence. The injunction stated that the victim and suspect could have contact only
to exchange the children, but that the suspect was forbidden from coming to the
victims residence. Ms. R reported that Mr. D began calling her at 10 a.m, and
continued to call her until 11:50 totaling five phone calls. Ms. R stated that Mr.
D called originally to make arrangements to meet her to get his children, but
quickly turned the conversation into whether or not she would take him back.
Ms. R stated that she ended the conversation, but he continued to call. Ms. R.
stated that she went down to her car to load her children up and observed Mr. D
pull into her apartment complex. She stated
that he walked past her and up her stairs to
her apartment where he stuck a key in the
door and broke off the key. She stated that he
then left in his vehicle. Ms. R stated that this
is an ongoing problem with Mr. D, but due
to her not having any witnesses besides her
children, the State has not proceeded with
any charges. She was issued a State's
Attorney's card. She declined to go to a safe .. -
WILL THE REAL MAIL TRUCK
PLEASE COME FORWARD? An officer was dispatched to the 1100 block
of Kings Rd., the U.S. Post Office, on a report of a hit and run crash involving
two mail trucks. Upon arrival he was met by the complainant, Mr. EH, an Illinois
driver for a transportation company. Mr. EH was inside the restricted and guard-
ed parking area for unloading and loading of mail trucks. He said that he had
been parked at a loading dock for 30 minutes when his truck had been struck. He
didn't notice it until he had left and went to a truck stop a little while later. He
then returned to the Post Office where he called the police. Mr. EH said that their
had been numerous trucks driving by while his truck was parked at the loading
dock and any one of then could have hit his. The officer noticed the front of the
left front quarter panel and the front bumper had some damage. The officer told
Mr. EH that at this time, there is no way to tell which truck struck his or if the
other driver even knew he had hit his truck.
I BROUGHT YOU IN THIS WORLD,
AND I'LL .... An officer was dispatched to
the 1700 block of Linares Way where he
: spoke with victimm Ms. C stating that earlier

Nia Long: Sensuous
Screen Star is not done yet! ,
By Rych McCain,
Photos 2007 by
Andre' B. Murray/
There are women
who attract superficial
attention with fluff, and
then there are women
who command full
attention through sheer
actress Nia Long is defi-
nitely of the latter cate-
gory. Her sharp wit,
charm and natural sen-
suousness wrapped in a
blanket of sexy,
superfine looks is a
package that any ration-
ally thinking, sane man
would find hard to
resist! In fact, the year
2000 proved to be her
year to bare witness to
that fact. She was voted
one of the 50 most beau-
tiful people in-the world
that year by People
magazine. That same
year savy her voted the
third sexiest woman out
of the top ten women for
Black Men magazine.
Long was born
Nitara Carlynn Long in
Brooklyn, New York 37
years ago to Afro-
Trinidadian parents who
divorced when she was
two years old. She and
her mom relocated to
Iowa City, Iowa where
her mom obtained a sec-
ond master's degree in
fine arts. They then
moved to Los Angeles
when Long was seven.
As a child, she took an
interest in acting and
studied for fifteen years
under acting coach
Betty Bridges, mother of
former child actor Todd
Bridges of "Diff'rent
Strokes" TV Show fame.
It is also a personal inter-"
est of note that our long
Andre' B.' Murray shot
Long's first portfolio
head shots when she was
seven. She.is still fond of
that session everytime
she sees Andre' on the red
carpet and elsewhere
Long's first role
beginning in 1991 was a
three year stint -as "Kat"
Speakes on the soap
opera "The Guiding
Light." That was fol-
lowed by a regular role as
Will Smith's love interest
on "The Fresh Prince of
Bel-Air." In 2003 she
joined the cast of the
drama "Third Watch" as
Officer Sasha Monroe.
Last season Long played
Cassie, the daughter of
Irv Harper on
"Everwood." She will
make several appear-
ances on "Boston Legal"
Long's film appear-
ances have been just as
involved as her TV shows
with starring roles in
Boyz N the Hood, Friday,
Big Momma's House,
Love Jones, Soul Food,
Made in America and
Boiler Room to name a
few. This year Long is
sizzling with two movies
that are currently out-
Sandra Bullock and Are
We Done Yet? opposite
Ice Cube. In her role with
Ice Cube she laughs
about being pregnant
throughout the movie
"In the beginning of
the film, I'm not showing
so you kind of live the
whole pregnancy with
-me. I had four different
bellies. The first two bel-
lies were made out of pil-
lows which was fine, but
as the pregnancy got larg-
er, we did prosthetics and
it's made out of latex. I
would have to step into
this belly, put K-Y jelly
all over my butt and back,
then baby powder and
pull it up. It was not a
cute look. It was very hot
but I didn't mind because
it kept my waist line
When asked about the
experiences of working
with Ice Cube the many
times she has, Long's
face lights up.
"He's amazing! We
started in this business
their roles in Boyz In
the Hood], and I
remember I used to be
scared to death of him
because he wag NWA
rapper guy with a Jheri
curl and thick eye brows
and I was like 'ooh my
God, he's scary,' he's
the real deal."
Long praises Cube's
maturity in life and in
his career. She laughs
and says with great
admiration and affec-
tion; "He's a big lovable
teddy bear and he's
scared of me now!"

One of the world's most
deeply respected performers in

dynamic rare Los Angeles
appearance at the Savoy

Snoop Dogg's wife, Sh;inie'
Broadus and the organization she
founded i.e., Boss Lady
Entertainment will host their first
annual Boss Lady Entertainment
Easter Celebration this weekend
at Dorsey High School in South
Central Los Angeles for the chil-
dren of the KARMA Foundation.
This agency works closely with
children in foster care. The free,
fun-filled event will feature face
painting, food, arts and crafts,
video games and a big Easter Egg
hunt. Big Gun Records, straight
outta Texas, has dropped the new
single from BLAST titled "Hood
Rich" Ft. Mannie Fresh, from his
"Unexpected" which will drop
this summer. Look out for the
sensational teen rap group The
LAX BOYZ representing the
West Coast out of San
Bernardino. These youngstaz can
Are We Done Yet? stars Ice
Cube, Nia Long, John C.
McGinley, Aleisha Allen and
Philip Daniel Bolden.
This is the second offering in
the "Are we,.." series of subjects
that b .aji with ithe original
Are We I hlcrc Yet? The gang is
back with a now married Nick
(Cube) and his pregniiat wife
Sii/:nnel (Long) and their two
children Kevin (Bolden),
Lindsey (Allen) and dog Coco.
The children are not obnox-
ious like they were in the first
movie. They are more mature
and responsible. Nick has his
hands full with the remodeling
of a "fixer upper" that he
bought in the, country to
escape the rat race of the city.
His nemeses is Jack-of-all-
trades and holder of all titles
i.e., relater, contractor etc.,
Chuck Mitchell, Jr.
(McGinley). Chuck gets under
Nick's skin and inside his head
in ways that irritate him to no
Even though she is preg-
nant throughout the film, Nia
Long still manages to be a big
screen turn-on with the acting
chops to match. McGinley as
Mitchell is funny and ridicu-
lous at the same time but his
performance is the glue that
holds the film together. Allen
has her first on screen crush
and gets to exhibit her budding
teen sexiness in a cute and
harmless sort of way. Bolden
also shows signs of his coming
of age as well, quite convinc-
ingly. This movie is great for
the entire family, children and
all. This is how Cube wanted it
to be and he successfully
achieved that objective.
