American Beach An


Endangered Landmark

By Marsha Dean Phelts
American Beach, founded by the Afro American Life
Insurance Company has been in existence since 1935. Its
magnificent beauty lies along the southern tip of Amelia
Island, Florida's northern most barrier islands. This tiny
African American enclave steeped in history is an endan-
gered treasure trove.

Imus Dropped!


By MSNBC and CBS

There is a picture on file that was taken of Don Imus in
1976, with a bar of soap in his mouth. Maybe he really did
not use it ir. 1976 but now wished he had rather than make
the comments he made .about the Rutgers University.
woman's Basketball team. Now, he has lost his jobs in an
effort to being "cool" with the ability to relate to 'Hip Hop'
music and sayings. But on the other hand, Imus' statement
may be just what African American men and women need
to understand that we cannot say degrading, disrespectful
things to or about one another.
Many have come forth regarding Imus statement, includ-
ing Dr. Gwendolyn Lee, the National President of Links
Incorporated who stated that Imus' behavior was "a cruel
assault on the dignity of all African Americans and
women." Continued on Page A-7

Bring Back Summer Employment Program


Marc Morial, President, National Urban League


With the end of the school
year a few months ai'ay, the
prospects of putting
America's \%,rtli to work to
keep them off the streets this
summer are prettymeager,
especially for those living in
urban areas, given the lack of
federal support and competi-
tion for these jobs from other
sectors of society.
In 1974, near the end of
his administration, President
Richard M. Nixon injected
nearly $400 million into
Uncle Sam's so-called
Summer Jobs Program,
which has been around in

It went from a standalone
pi 'Lg;ram \' ith its own budg-
et -- to one of 10 youth serv-
ices required under WIA. In
order to participate during
the summer, disadvantaged
youth now must be involved
throughout the year, a
requirement that has
increased the cost consider-
ably and severely limited the
number of participants. Also,
the act made the program
optional, giving cities and
municipalities the power to
spend the WIA money allo-
cated for them where they
want to spend it.

role in punling low-income
disadvantaged : ,,'rih into
summer jobs? Because the
likelihood of ihem ieci.rin_
rmipl.;- mient without outside
help is not \r,. likely: In
2006, o1,il\ 17 percent of
. uri.'I blacks from fomiiie-
with household incomes
under $20,000 managed to
find summer jobs, iacordmin
to a 2006 study by
.nrtf iLa.ste-rn Urniersit '.
Center for Labor Market
Srudie.
The ]higher hlie inicolme the
better their prospects, among
their own race: 38 percent of
blacks from families with
incomes over $75,000 a year
were employed during the
summer. But even blacks
from the most-affluent
households were less
likely to get jobs than whites
from the least-affluent
households: 45 percent of
whites from families with
incomes under $20,000 land-
ed summer jobs for 2006.
Affluent whites outper-
formed their black counter-
parts by 17 percentage
points. So, it's not only eco-
nomic standing but also race
that dictates to some extent
the success of black summer
job seekers.
That said, it has still been
difficult for teenagers of all
races and income back-
grounds to find summer
employment. From 2000 to
2006, the seasonally-adjust-
ed employment rate of
youths 16-19 fell from 45.0
percent to 37.1 percent,
despite strong national wage
and salary job growth, which
usually boosts teen worker
demand, according to the
Northeastern University
study.
This overall reduction,
the report surmises, is a
result of increased competi-
tion from newer immigrants,
older workers, older college
students home for the sum-


mer and uRin ci.ril;. grad-
uates unable to obtain jobs in
their chosen field of stud',. It
doesn't help that the federal

former self
This trend is likely to
limit opportunities a\ ailable
for '.jluthi. especially those
from disadvantaged econom-
ic backgrounds, which \\ill
in turn hurt their income-
earning ability in adulthood.
"For teens, work experi-
ence begets more work expe-
rience, and cumulative work
experience has a high payoff
in deterininin the wages and
annual earnings of young
adults in their early to mid-
20s," the Northeasiem
University study noted.
In 2000, the U.S.
Conference of May or s.
which I led in the early part
-of the decade. urged U.S.
lawmakers, to no avail, to
reconsider phasing out the
old Summer Jobs Program.
predicting it would have
detrimental effects down the
line.
"Now is the time to mar-
shal our resources and focus
on our at-risk south not
abandon them. Investing in
these populations returns
many times over in reduced
welfare dependence, fewer
crimes, less incarceration
expenses, and greater work-
force productivity," the letter
of which I was a signatory
stated.
That is why I'm calling on
our U.S. Congress to rein-
state the Summer Jobs
Program of old. If our nation
ever hopes to close the gap
between minorities -and
mainstream America, it must
start with our youth. If we
don't invest in them now, the
disparities they now face will
only be reinforced in the
years to come.

en. A time to be born, and a time
to die. "--Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.
No one wants to talk about
death and funerals. Too depress-
ing. 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
funeral service with visitation
and a member of the clergy con-
ducting 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 pro-
fessional services.
Resist one-stop shopping,
which can include such things as
"V


pra~ er cards, dtanrk-\ou notes,

al home in their neighborhood
for personalized services.
Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth bur-
ial, a cemetery plot should be
purchased; if above ground, a
mausoleum crypt. If cremation is
the choice, plan disposition 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
memorial service express that
wish. That means a service in the
funeral home or a church where
the body is not present. A com-
mon misconception is that when
the body is cremated you don't
hold a funeral, You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

Bausch & Lomb 2007 Tournament A Very Special
for Young Ladies
For several months members of The Jacksonville
Links have been mentoring some very special young
ladies at a local children's facility, Hill Top Housing
Development Girl Scouts and at Paxon Middle School.
The mentoring sessions have focused on workshops
focusing on the book Venus & Serena Serving From
The Hip: 10 Rules for Living, Loving and Winning by
tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams. The wish was
always that the young ladies would have the opportuni-
ty to see one of the tennis stars at the Bausch & Lomb
Tennis Tournament at Amelia Island Plantation. Tickets
were secured, a workshop of tennis etiquette was con-
ducted by Jacksonville Links member Mrs. Catherine
Mitchell (an avid tennis player) and with no commit-
ment from either of the stars, the Links members and
young ladies were resigned to not seeing the stars in
person. Voila! Ms. Venus Williams did commit days
before the beginning of the tournament and she was
scheduled for her first match the veiy same date and
time of the tickets that had been secured for the young
ladies.
The young ladies were treated to a tour of the tennis
player's facilities by Mrs. Sandy Kavanaugh, public
relations director for the tournament. And all during
Ms. Williams' match they were raving about having
touched Venus Williams' tennis racket. They were so
excited, especially having the opportunity to sit in on
Ms. Williams' post match press conference. Following
the press conference, Ms. Williams signed their copies
of her book, greeted each of the young ladies with
warm hugs and expressed sincere thanks for their com-
ing to see her play.
Even though Ms. Williams was not victorious at the
tennis tournament, the glow and glee of those young
ladies that very special evening will linger on indefi-
nitely. Ms. Kavanaugh commented, "This is the most
heartwarming experience I've had in a long time."
If you enjoy tennis as I do, you would have enjoyed
the entire week as other tennis enthusiasts did all week.

Legislators May Require

Shutters on Coastal Homes


In a move designed to
hold down insurance costs,
people who own homes
along the coast valued at
more than $300,000 may
have to open their wallets a
lot wider when they want to
have a fence built,, their
roof repaired, or do any
kind of work that requires a
building permit.
A bill passed out of the
Senate Banking and
risurance Committee this
\\eek proposes that starting
January 1 coastal home-
owners who need a building
permit for any reason must
also buy hurricane shutters.

Despite expert testimo-
ny to lawmakers that stem
cells from umbilical cords,
for example, have led to
cures for diseases such as
sickle-cell anemia. The
state legislators are taking a
more conservative position
than Gov. Charlie Crist.
Florida lawmakers took
steps last week to ban state
funding for the most contro-
versial type of stem cell
research. The proposal,
unanimously approved by
committees in the House
and Senate, forbids any tax-
payer funding for experi-
ments on human embryos.
Instead, it sets aside $20
million for the study of
adult stem cells.
"We need to focus our
money on what we know is
working, not for research
that's not going to show
results,"- said Rep. Anitere
Flores, R-Miami. who is
sponsoring the bill in the
House.
The proposal is more

ers have no work planned,
they may still have to shop
for shutters The bill also
would require that those
same coastal homes will not
be eligible for coverage
under state-backed Citizens
Property Insurance unless
they have shutters.
The bill's sponsor, Sen.
Bill Posey, R-Rockledge,
said matching grants of up
to $2,500 are available
through the My Safe
Florida Homes program,
"and $2,500 should more
than cover cost of shutters."
But numbers provided
by the Florida Alliance For
Safe Homes FLASH, a non-


profit that promotes disaster
preparedness, showed that
$2,500 is about the average
cost for only the cheapest
protection temporary panel
shutters.
Far less expensive ply-
wood is not an acceptable
protection under the My
Safe Florida Homes pro-
gram, said a program
spokeswoman.
The bill has at least one
more committee stop before
it reaches the Senate floor. It
also lacks a companion bill
in the House.
Gov. Charlie Crist said
he had not heard about the
shutters requirement until
Monday. "But it certainly
sounds wise," he said. "It
sounds like a smart thing to
do.


Embryo Stem Cell Studies

in Trouble With Lawmakers

Legislators feel they need to focus the
money on what's working.


Crist, which would permit
funding for experiments on
the 60 lines of embryonic
stem cells Bush set aside in
2001.
Scientists say the study
of stem cells, or cells that
can be developed into any
kind of cell in the body,
could lead to treating a vari-
ety of degenerative dis-
eases. Most scientists
believe embryonic stem
cells hold the most poten-
tial.
lBut the impatient law-
makers said Tuesday
embryonic stem cell
research doesn't just violate
their ethical and religious
beliefs it also hasn't pro-
duced results fast enough.


Experiments on embry-
onic stem cells haven't pro-
duced any cures yet and are
not a good investment of
the state's money, the
experts said.
"What can we do with
the dollars today to benefit
the greatest number of citi-
zens?" said David Harris,
director of the Cord.Blood
Registry in Arizona. "When
we stop and think, we
always come up with non-
embryonic stem cells."
Although members of
the party voted to support
the funding ban,
Democratic leaders said
Tuesday's stem cell debate
was too one-sided.

cates for funding adult stem
cell research. Documents
supporting embryonic stem
cell research were not dis-
tributed. No experts testi-
fied in opposition to the
funding ban because
Democrats said they hadn't
had time to prepare.
House Minority Leader
Dan Gelber, D-Miami
Beach, said he will continue
to fight against the plan
endorsed Tuesday.
"Their position couldn't
be more out of step with
Florida and with science,"
Gelber said. "It's almost like
it's from another millenni-
um."
Legislative leaders still
haven't decided whether to
set aside money for the
adult stem cell research.
Crist has asked for $20
million, but the money has-
n't been put into either the
House or Senate budget yet.


Historian Julius Thompson Discusses Black's Search for Freedom


''Slavery, Culture Caste and the Future of America" was
the name of Stetson University's final free lecture in the
2007 Howard Thurman Lecture Series last week
Poet and historian Julius Thompson drew from his latest
book, Lynchings in Mississippi: A History, 1865-1965. His
book includes information about Mississippi lynchings from
the Civil War through the civil-rights movement. During
that time, about one in 10 lynchings in the United States
occurred in Mississippi.
Thompson described the black experience in America as
a complex, yet fascinating struggle to overcome oppression.
Thompson, 60% told about 100 people attending a
Howard Thurman Program lecture Tuesday at Stetson
University he has spent 40 years trying to understand slav-
ery, cultural differences and violence in America.
"Despite great suffering by the black community, they've
been concerned about poor whites, they've been concerned
about American Indians," he said.
A central theme among black people has been the
"search for freedom," he said. "Segregation delayed the
advancement of American civilization."
One-third of blacks are very poor and segregation
remains to this day in housing, health care and the criminal
justice sN stem. he'said.
".Oppression of any people seems to create this phenom-
enon or situation if any of us are oppressed, we all suffer,",
Thompson said.
Lynchings were used to keep black people down, he said.
Some historians say as many as 10,000 black people were
lynched in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th
centuries, although he believes the total might be slightly
less. As many as 1,500 white men were lynched, too, he
said.
Thompson's home state, Mississippi, had the most with
as many as 550 lynching victims. Florida had the seventh-'
most lynchings with 282, of which 267 were black.
"Black rights could be challenged with this lynching
phenomenon," he said. "A successful black man could be
lynched because he owned land. A black man could be
lynched because he voted."
Thompson said.he retains an optimistic outlook for the
future.
Jefferson Rogers, director of the Howard Thurman
Program. qtloted Thompson's poetry in introducing the
speaker:
"No. We do not move all at once.
0 "No. We do nbt die all at once.


"No. We do not. No. We do not.
"But we hurt just the same."
Thompson is a professor and director of the Black
Studies Program at the University of Missouri, Columbia,
Mo., and author of "Lynchings in Mississippi, 1865-1965;
A History."
He received a bachelor's degree in history from Alcorn
State University, Lorman, Miss., and both his master's and
doctoral degrees in American history from Princeton
University in New Jersey.
Tuesday night's talk wound up the spring series of
Thurman lectures. Born in 1900 in Daytona Beach,
Thurman was a world-renowned minister, author and the-
ologian whose best-known book was "Jesus and the
Disinherited."
He was a spiritual adviser to Martin Luther King Jr. and
others in the civil rights movement.

dual-use equipment avail-
able to non-deployed Army
National Guard forces.
"Problems from the
wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan have stretched
the Florida National Guard
further than ever before,
leaving it without all the
resources it should have for
responding to a domestic
crisis," Nelson said.
"Hurricane season is com-
ing fast and, we need to
make sure the Guard has
what it needs."
The hurricane season,
which runs June 1 through
Nov. 30, is predicted to be
worse than recent years.
Florida has about 600 to
700 soldiers in Iraq.
Members were sent over-
seas with their equipment,
but when they come back,
the gear often stays in the
war zones. The Florida
Guard was down 500
Humvees, 600 trucks, short
4,000 pairs of night vision
goggle and needed 30 more
wreckers, spokesman Lt.
Col. Ron Tittle said.


Yet Tittle said sufficient
manpower and equipment
remained to respond to a
major hurricane, and addi-
tional supplies could be
borrowed from other states
or rented if needed.
But Nelson questioned
the lag time and the fact that
the other state Guard units
also are facing the same
depletion of equipment
problems.
"I know that at the high-
est levels they are con-
cerned about this," Nelson,
D-Fla., said.
Nelson said a memoran-
dum of understanding
between the Army and the
National Guard could allow
Gov. Charlie Crist to use
Army Reserve trucks and
generators upon the decla-
ration of a State of
Emergency. Without such a
memorandum, the governor
has to go through a bureau-
cratic process to request
that the president release
Reserve equipment that is
being held unused in
Florida.


Bradford Co. Pays for

Inmates Bypass Surgery
The Braddford County commission has to swallow two
bitter pills in the form of outstanding medical bills, one for
a-jail inmate and another for a suspect arrested by the Starke
Police Department.
John N. Goodman Jr. was in jail and awaiting trial on a
charge of felony battery on a pregnant female when he had
a heart attack, according to Sheriff Bob Milner. After initial
transport to Shands Starke, Goodman was transferred to
Shands AGH where he underwent a quadruple bypass sur-
gery and subsequent hospitalization.
Although a judge released Goodman from custody on
the day he was admitted to AGH, Milner said the county is
still responsible for bills related to that period of hospital za-
tion because he was still in the county's custody when
admitted.
The Shands AGH bill totals nearly $87,000 with the con-
tractual discount Shands offers to the county. Most of that
will be covered by the insurance policy the county carries
for inmate catastrophic health claims, but the county is still
out $20,000, which is the policy's deductible, and it has to
pay the full amount until it is reimbursed. Plus there's
$4,200 already paid to Shands Starke for related expenses.;
While the board voted to pay the outstanding bill,
County Manager Jim Crawford said the bill might actually
be paid later in the budget year due to some "unbudgeted
shortfalls."
Goodnman was arrested in April 2006, and County
Commissioner John Cooper blamed the fact that he was still
in the county's custody awaiting trial when the heart attack
occurred to a number of continuances that had been granted.
Bail was set but Goodman was never bonded out, Milner said.
"I'm sitting here in my mind thinking how to revise that
statute," Cooper said. "We need to amend the statute. In
Bradford County terms, that's garbage."


State News Briefs

Tallahassee, Fl Gov. Charlie Crist today signed into
law a bill that will give low-income seniors a property-
tax break.
The measure (HB 333), which implements a constitu-
tional amendment approved by voters last fall, increases

residents age 65 and older whose income does not
exceed $23,414 in 2007

North Port, Fl -- Patricia Hillard doesn't like guns.
Friday night, the North Port mother and her 13-year-old
son Tevin were cleaning their yard. That's when Hillard
discovered what she thought was a BB gun wrapped in a
blanket. But it was a .22-caliber rifle.
Hillard picked up the gun and accidentally touched
the trigger. The gun fired, and one bullet struck Tevin in
the chest.
At that point, Hillard still didn't know Tevin had been
shot with the rifle that her husband had left in the yard
for a client to pick up.
When police arrived at the family's East Price
Boulevard home, they told her it was a rifle and not a BB
gun.
"I could have lost my son," Hillard said.

Intern Steals Papers
From Nat'l. Archives
Sells them on Ebay
Denning McTague, a 40-
year-old intern with the
National Archives, stole
about 165 Civil War docu-
ments, including the War
Dept's announcement of
President Lincoln's death
and sold them on eBay.
McTague plead guilty
Wednesday to stealing the
documents. Prosecutors
said Denning McTague,
who has master's degrees in
history and library science,
put about 150 of the docu-
ments online and had
shipped about half of them.
All but three of the
items, worth an estimated
$30,000 in all, have since
been recovered.
McTague is an avid and
educated cultural and his-
torical artifacts collector,
having obtained a masters
degrees in history and infor-
mation systems with a con-
centration in archives. He
was the owner and operator
of Denning House, a busi-
ness formerly located in
New York and then in
Philadelphia, which
described itself on its Web
site as a "Purveyor of: Rare
and Vnusual Books, Maps,
Manuscripts, Interesting
Paper and Americana."

summer. As an unpaid
intern, he had been respon-

upcoming 150th anniver-

National News Briefs

Atlanta, Ga One of the late Ed Bradley's final "60
Minutes" stories was among 35 Peabody Award winners
announced last week. Bradley, the pioneering black CBS
journalist who died of leukemia last November, won for
an examination of the Duke University rape case.

Washington, DC A week after acknowledging a
litany of errors in the friendly fire death of former NFL
star Pat Tillman, the Army said Wednesday two soldiers
who died in Iraq in February may also have been killed
by their own comrades.
The families of the two soldiers were initially told
they were killed by enemy fire.

Vacant lots belong to property flippers who buy and sell
quickly at great profit.
For African American history, culture and pride there is
no place like American Beach. The landscape rises from the
Atlantic Ocean, giving formation to majestic dunes. The
interior is blanketed throughout by a magnificent maritime
forest of wind twisted oaks, magnolias, bay, holly, palm and
pine trees. Every property lies east of Ocean Highway A1A,
a:k.a. "Mavynne Betsch 'The Beach Lady' Highway." The
farthest distance from A1A to the shoreline is .05 miles. Not
all lots yield an ocean view, however; the roar of the sea can
be heard from each property in American Beach.
American Beach is an endangered landmark. If African
American people don't invest and purchase these properties
the Historic American Beach District is destined to become
a: memory or no more than a footnote in history. The only
way to save and perpetuate this great landmark is for
African Americans to become American Beach home and
property owners. There are no steals or bargain prices;
American Beach is prime real estate and an African American
Mecca developed at the hands of our forefathers. Invest in
American Beach today. It is deserving and worthy of imme-
diate and committed preservation efforts. American Beach,

Those arrested participated in an operation that consisted of drugs and murder. It included the small street operators sell-
ing heroin to major dealers. The department provided an organizational chart that provided information on the managers
and the street salesmen, charged with heroin trafficking, possession of cocaine and conspiracy.
The arrests consisted of three rings that worked together to keep each other supplied when necessary.
Officers were able to seize cocaine, methamphetamine, hallucinogenic mushrooms, marijuana and steroids. They also
seized guns and cash. The organizations handled hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of drugs. Sheriff Rutherford said
there were 64 people arrested and charged with crimes. "Among the 15 most egregious offenders, there was a total of 240
previous felony charges with only 79 convictions statewide."

"I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD"
LCharles Franklin's Colored Project Reflects History, Culture
and Innovation in New Line of T-Shirts


Atlanta,


GA


(BlackNews.com) In
1968 when James Brown
recorded his chart top-
ping hit "Say it Loud-I'm
Black and I'm Proud",
African --Americans
across the nation felt a
sense of pride about their
heritage.
In 2007 Charles
Franklin's Colored
Project will bring the
same buzz across the


chests of proud African-
Americans who have
made great achieve-
ments. The Project is a
line of t-shirts which
have been designed to
state great accomplish-
ments such as: Colored
Voter, Colored Achiever,
and Colored Musician,
just to name a few. "It is
a reminder of our ances-
tor's struggle," Charles


Franklin said. "Everyone
loves to wear t-shirts, so
why not have one that
states your achieve-
ment."
Fifty years ago there
were signs in local
restaurants and business-
es which stated "Colored
Only" for the alternate
entrance African-
Americans could enter
and exit through. Those
that created this alternate
life style stated that
African Americans
would never become
doctors, lawyers, and law
makers with the rest of
society. One of the most
significant contributions
during this era was the


"Generation of Moses",
Martin Luther King,
Jesse Jackson, John
Lewis, and Rosa Parks
just to name a few who
marched for the full
rights of freedom which
included voting. "One of
The Project's best selling
T-shirts is 'Colored
Voter', which boldly
states the opportunity to
change, whether change
is current political fig-
ures or local zoning
issues."
Charles Franklin is a
rising designer who is
making a mark in fash-
ion. This GA native came
up with this concept
while riding a NYC sub-


way. As he watched
African American entre-
preneurs, educators,
musicians, and voters
ride, he realized the pow-
erful impact this t-shirt
would have on the
African American com-
munity. Charles Franklin
is determined for the
youth to wear something
more powerful across
there chest aside from the
"bling" and air brushed
dollar bills.

STUDENT] QUESTION OF TH] WEEK


How Do I Find A Good
Summer Job?
By Renee Ward, Founder, Teens4Hire.org

Summer job opportunities for those 18
and older will be the greatest. For 16-17
year olds, the job market will be very com-
petitive. Fewer paying jobs will be avail-
able for 14-15 year olds according to Renee
Ward, founder of:
http://www.teens4hire.org
The jobless rate for teens 16-19 has
increased steadily since the year 2000 but
there are encouraging signs that 2005 will
have more openings teens could fill.
"We've noticed more 'we're hiring'
signs at places that traditionally have hired
teens and several companies in this sector
have announced increased hiring plans for
the summer. For example, travel and
tourism is up and that means more open-
ings at amusement parks, vacation spots,
parks and recreational areas," Ward says.
High grade point averages and good
interpersonal skills will help those 16 and
older, but current U.S. child labor laws
restrict the kinds of jobs and hours teens
aged 14-15 can work.

What To Expect

Teens should not expect to be handed a
paying job. They will have to earn it. Ward


says, "There are more teens
seeking jobs than jobs available
and companies still tell us that
they'd prefer to hire older work-
ers instead of teens because
they feel teens are not prepared
for the workplace."
Businesses prefer hiring
older workers for their educa-
tion, maturity and previous
work experience.
"Teens can improve their
odds of landing a job if they
show that they are self-motivat-
ed, willing to work hard, have a
positive attitude, are reliable, have the
basic education required to do the job and
understand the needs of the business," says
Ward.
She says a neat appearance, an accurate
application, a firm hand-shake and eye
contact also help.

Top 10 Places To Find A Summer Job

ment-run Youth Programs
2) Vacation and Tourism spots

DE'ANDRE ROCKS THE HOUSE AT "THE HEART FOR DIABETES CONCERT" BENEFITING THE
AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION HELD AT THE GEORGE BROWN CONVENTION CENTER


Chris Walker congratulates Nothing but hugs and kisses
De'Andre on his perform- from Regina Belle on a job
ance. well done.


Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee
congratulates De'Andre on his awe-
some performance.


Houston. TX
(BlackNews.com)
De'Andre was in the
lineup with Regina
Belle, Grammy Award
winner, Kirk Whalum,
Grammy Award nomi-
nee, Chris Walker, and
others. He was the last
performer. As Kirk
Whalum played "Falling
In Love With Jesus" on
his saxophone, that he
wrote and composed,
De'Andre made his
"invisible" entrance onto
the stage and began to
serenade the crowd by
singing the song. The


audience was astonished
to see a young boy who
just celebrated his 11th
birthday on January 15
with such a phenomenal
voice and the ability to
bellow out notes like the
great Luther Vandross.
At the end of the song,
other performers entered
onto the stage. De'Andre
and Regina Belle contin-
ued to sing "Falling In
Love With Jesus" and it
was something to hear
and see.
Congresswom an
Sheila Jackson-Lee was
in the audience and she


could not believe what
she had witnessed. After
the show, the
Congresswoman waited
about 20 minutes for-
De'Andre to exit from
his dressing room and
asked him to sing anoth-
er song. He began to
sing "My Favorite
Place," a song he wrote
and dedicated to the late
Dr. Martin Luther King.
Congresswoman and the
crowd were captivated.
De'Andre is a native
of Port Arthur, Texas,
with a passion for music.
He is the youngest son of


Mr. & Mrs. Darryl Nico.
His relationship with
God began at a very
early age when he began
singing in the bathroom.
His parents noticed that
he wasn't a child that
played normal games as
other children and he
always had something to
offer up to God.
De'Andre CD/DVD
project entitled "Good
Morning Jesus" is avail-
able at stores in Houston
and also on his Web site,
promiseseed.com. Three
songs are written by
De'Andre and this is a


must to have in any
"musical" collection. On
his DVD, his singing,
playing keyboard, and
offering his voice up to
God in "live" perform-
ances is something to
write home about.

National Achievement Scholarship Winners Named


(Evanston, Illinois)
Today the National
Achievement Scholarship
Program announced the
names of more than 800
high school seniors who
have won National
Achievement Scholarships.
These outstanding Black
American students will
receive scholarships total-
ing more than $2.5 million,
which may be used for
undergraduate study at any
regionally accredited U.S.
college or university.
Funding for the awards is
provided by over 50 corpo-
rate organizations and pro-
fessional associations, and
by National Merit
Scholarship Corporation.
The National
Achievement Program is a
privately financed academ-
ic competition established


in 1964 specifically tn
honor scholastically talent-
ed Black American youth,
and to provide scholarships
to a substantial number of
the most outstanding par-
ticipants in each annual
competition. The 2007 pro-
gram marks 43 annual
competitions in which
more than 27,800 partici-
pants have received schol-
arships worth approximate-
ly $88 million. The pro-
gram is conducted by
National Merit Scholarship
Corporation, a not-for-
profit organization that
operates without govern-
ment assistance.
Achievement Scholar
designees announced today
include 700 winners of
National Achievement
$2500 Scholarships. All
Finalists in the 2007 com-


petition were considered
for these single-payment
scholarships, which were
awarded on a regional rep-
resentation basis, in num-
bers proportional to the
population of Black
Americans in each geo-
graphic region.
About 100 Scholars are
recipients of corporate-
sponsored Achievement
Scholarship awards.
Winners were chosen from
among Finalists who meet
the criteria of their grantor
organizations. Most are
residents of an area served
by the sponsor, children of
sponsor company employ-
ees, or Finalists planning to
pursue a college major or
career the grantor wishes to
encourage. Almost all cor-
porate-sponsored scholar-
ships are renewable and


provide stipends that can
vary trom n;3uu Lto U ,o;,od
per year, but a few provide
a single payment between
$2,500 and $5,000.


The 2007 Competition
More than 140,000 stu-
dents entered the 2007
National Achievement
Program by requesting
consideration when they
took the 2005 Preliminary
SAT/National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying
Test (PSAT/NMSQT) as
high school juniors. In
September 2006, approxi-
mately 1,600 of the highest
scorers were named
Semifinalists on a regional
representation basis. To
continue in the competi-
tion, Semifinalists had to
fulfill requirements for
Finalist standing, which


included having a record of
*,S -- --"a,. p:,t n -- Qmmi
performance; being
endorsed and recommend-
ed by an official of their
high school; earning SAT
scores that confirm their
PSAT/NMSQT perform-
ance; and submitting an
essay about personal inter-
ests, attainments, and,_
goals.
Some 1,300
Semifinalists advanced to
the Finalist level, and all
Achievement Scholarship
winners were selected from
this group of outstanding
students. Achievement
Scholar awardees are the
Finalist candidates judged
to have the strongest record
of accomplishments anc1
greatest potential for aca-
demic success in college.

Bedford Renaming Moves on to School Board Summer Gas Prices Maybe Less


A controversy that began
when a group of sociology
students from Florida
Community College-
Jacksonville wanted to
change a piece of history
last November is grinding
toward a final resolution.
The students proposed to
rename a high school cur-
rently named for a founder
of the Ku-Klux Klan.
Nathan B. Forrest
High School is located
on the Westside just th6
off 103rd Street near for
Interstate 295. For
nearly 50 years, the school's
name has remained the
same, despite previous pro-
posals for change.
Since the 1950s, the
school on Firestone Road
on the Westside has carried
the name of Nathan Bedford
Forrest.
On Monday night, a
committee of teachers, par-
ents and a student at Nathan
Forrest High School voted
in favor of changing the
school's name.
"I think when you look
at the racial makeup of this
school, it's insensitive to
keep that name," said
Forrest High School's


Advisory Board member
James Caldwell.
Caldwell is one of eight
members who voted to
rename the school.
Parent and advisory
board member Cathy
Hilliard was one of the six
board members who
opposed a name change.
She said students' voices


The students proposed to rena.
e school currently named for
under of the Ku-Klux Klan

weren't heard in Monday
night's election.
"I think a lot of them
don't care one way or the
other. They don't care about
what happened years and
years ago," Hilliard said.
In a survey 55 percent of
the school's students were
against renaming the school
and many more didn't vote
at all.
Students voted to name it
Valhalla, but the Daughters
of the Confederacy told the
school system the name was
inappropriate because it car-
ried a negative connotation
in Norse mythology, said
Billy Parker, a former


School Board member who
was the school's first princi-
pal.
Either way, Principal
Helene Kirkpatrick said a
name change might be a
change the school needs.
"It's not bringing people
together, and the mascot if
it's not bringing people
together, we should look at
that also. Whatever
we select needs to
me bring people togeth-
a er," Xirkpatrick said.
"What does alarm
me is in this area
there's probably around 13
other schools named after
southerners or Confederate
generals. So, does it stop
here or does it go to Lee
High School next?" said
Gordon Terry, who is
against changing the name
of the school.
Monday's vote was non-
binding. The next step in
changing the name of the
school is a school board
vote.
Kirkpatrick said she
asked that the school board
take up the issue in May so
that any changes can be
made before the start of the
next school year.

Jacksonville's 12 Month average price for a gallon of gasoline shows the dramatic fall in prices late
last summer followed by the rapid increase of the past two months


find gasoline a little cheaper this summer
compared to last, despite a 64-cent-a-gallon
jump since January.
The Energy Department said Tuesday
that the recent sharp rise in gasoline costs is
likely to slow in the coming weeks with
prices averaging $2.81 a gallon over the
vacation driving season, about 3 cents lower
than last spring and summer.
Here in Jacksonville prices ranged from
$2.67 at Sams Club on Beach Blvd. to $2.99
at the BP on Emerson St at 1-95
But the Energy Information Administra-
tion forecast is anything but reassuring. It
was only a month ago, the agency said it
believed the cost of regular-grade gasoline
would peak in June, averaging $2.67 for the
month, a price already eclipsed last week.
The latest forecast calls for prices to peak
with an average $2.87 a gallon for the month
of May, then decline. Last summer's peak
was an average of $2.98 for July.
"We think the forecast is about on track,"
said Geoff Sundstrom, a spokesman for the
American Automobile Association. He said
based on current market trends he doesn't
see another summer of $3 gasoline nation-
wide. Prices have soared beyond $3 dollar in
each of the last two summers: During
Hurricane Katrina in 2005 that disrupted


Voters go to Polls in

Fernandina Beach
Fernandina Beach voters will elect a city
commissioner and endorse a candidate for
mayor Tuesday.
Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center and the Martin
Luther King Jr. Center on Elm Street.
There are three candidates for the single
city commission seat open this year. They


The forecast assumes no new interna-
tional crisis this summer. Since January, the
price of regular grade gasoline has gone
from a weekly average of $2.16 a gallon to
$2.80 last week. Prices across much of the
U.S. West Coast have been over $3 a gallon.
Gasoline prices normally increase in
advance of the April-to-September heavy
driving season, but this time the price climb
came shockingly early in the dead of
winter.
The government attributed the unusual
early price surge to higher crude oil prices,
unplanned refinery outrages, declining
imports from Europe and an increase in
demand.
"Although gasoline prices began their
seasonal increase about a month earlier than
usual, the rapid rate of price increase is pro-
jected to slow over the next few months,"
said the energy agency.
Sundstrom said it appears that people
seem to be adapting to the higher prices.
"One has to ponder if $3 a gallon is the new
threshold to pain," said Sundstrom.
Nearly seven out of ten of the survey's
respondents "say they will not change their
vacation plans because of high (fuel)
prices," according to the Columbus, Ohio-
based insurer.


are Ed Coop, George Stewart and incumbent
Ken Walker.
There are two candidates in the straw
poll for mayor, incumbent Bill Leeper and
former mayor Joe Gerrity. The commission
chooses the mayor but follows the straw poll
results by tradition.
Walker, a Hilliard native, has a B.A. in
political science from the University of
Georgia in Athens and a master's degree in:
public administration from the University of
North Florida in Jacksonville.

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


Dear Deanna!
I'm a bachelor that actively dates and I'm tired of women trying to
change me. I go into relationships being honest and direct. After a
while, these women want more than I'm willing to give. I don't
have any problems with this but it makes me mad when they
accuse me of leading them on, cheating and lying. It is what it is
and I stay the same from the first date to the last. What can I do to
protect myself from drama when these women want more from
me?
Travis The Bachelor (Houston, TX)


Dear Bachelor:
You put yourself in this situation by playing the relationship game. If you don't want them
asking for more then you need to stop acting like a boyfriend and treat these women as
around the way girls. In other words, if you're a recreational dater giving your body to all
and heart to none, then let them know. Yes, tell them that you're using them, you don't want
anything serious and you have more than one girlfriend. This will make your life easy and
simple because once they hear the real truth, they'll slam you and keep searching for a real
man.
******************

Dear Deanna!
I'm trying to get my life back on track. Whenever 1 start doing well, it seems like the devil
gets in my way. I'm stressed right now because I'm doing things that I know aren't right. 1
feel like I have demons inside of me because 1 always have evil thoughts and think nega-
tive about other people. I also have hatred in my heart towards other people but I can't help
it. How do I change my thoughts and my attitude?
Need Help (Miami, FL)
Dear Need Help:
You should celebrate the fact that you're alive with health, strength and a sound mind. Get
yourself to a pastor and a church and latch onto the Word and steadfast prayer to be released
from the grip of evil. You can get yourself together by surrounding yourself with positive
people and focus your mind on good things and personal goals. Seek professional help for
what appears to be deep rooted issues that could stem from childhood. Once you've done
these things read a few books on self-esteem to complete the circle of help and. keep it mov-
ing.
******************

Dear Deanna!
I'm a Muslim in a relationship with a Christian who wants me to convert. He says there is
no way it will work if we marry and have 2 different religions. I've never asked him to
change but when I ask about marriage, he says that I'm pressuring him. We're not ready for
marriage, but it would feel good to know I'm viewed as his future wife instead of a college
girlfriend. When I had a crisis and asked for prayer, his remarks were rude and alluded to
my lack of believing Jesus is the Son of God. What he says is true but why can't he chill
and let things work?
Melancholy (On-Line Readier)
Dear Melancholy:
The religious conversion is an excuse your mate uses to keep from entertaining a commit-
ment. Like other college students, you have relationship drama but yours also has religion
as another stress factor. These type relationships work, but yours is doubtful because he
doesn't respect you or your religious beliefs. He doesn't have plans to make this a lifelong
relationship, he won't change his religious views and it's to your advantage to keep fish-
ing and date someone that can support and grow your faith.

Peace Building In Paradise
by Ester Davis


This \vill most Ilkel\ be a shorter version of one of
my articles. I am just gening in from a resort outside
Seoul. Korea. and the jet lag is gi ing me the royal treat-
ment. But I ha\e this overwhelming desire, topped \\ith
whipped creme supreme, a compelling drive to \\rite L
until I "drop." So. here goes
NI tra\ els the first quarter of the N ear landed me at i'
the Yong P) ong Resort in Korea. Yong P) ong is an in\ it- -'
ing blend of the mountains, absolute nature and the sea. Yong Pyong is a world-class ski
resort. It hosts 31 slopes, including the famous Rainbow Slope with 15 lift facilities. Right
outside my room with the heated floors was a scenic view of the main ski run. Every morn-
ing for a week, I anxiously went to the window to finish waking up to the view. It was sim-
ply breathtaking. To add to the luster, it snowed the first night at the resort. And the won-
derland lasted for a day before the sun appeared. It is seldom you attend a conference
where the inside and outside are competitors. You equally want to be in both places.
Yong Pyong is a picturesque three hours' drive outside Seoul. It is one of the most
popular ski resorts in Korea. It is known in Europe and Asia because of its successful inter-
national events, the World Cup Ski Contest and Winter Asian Games. It is now a candidate
city for the 2014 Olympics, and global peace is its No. 1 priority. This full-service resort
covers an entire mountainside with major advertisers, indoor driving range, saunas, ski
repair shops, beauty salons. Oh, did I mention the shopping.
So much for the outside. The inside, a rainbow of faiths and diversity, now a candi-
date for peace initiatives and building lasting peace, hosted a leadership summit for
Ambassadors for Peace with a workbook this time. Now, mind you, a workbook can have
a negative connotation. And I am sure it received some awkward stares and unmentionable
undertones, but the finale yielded full scripted pages. Ambassadors for Peace are a 50,000-
member global network of activists with a common thread of sowing peace. The Universal
Peace Federation (UPF) gathered a few devoted to interact with the appropriate theme
"Providing Vision and Leadership at a Time of Global Crisis." As a serious ambassador, I
am always, always ignited after attending one of these world gatherings of like minds and
spirits. And I leave with an artillery of notes loaded to arrange into an article or script for
future shows. And believe me, being a former legal secretary, a bit of shorthand here and
there makes for an interesting seven-course manuscript fit for a best-selling book.
The mountains of Yong Pyong and the ski slopes mingled in harmony and concert
with the meeting inside. As I sat through one of the sessions, my mind saw how clearly a
person of peace must be prepared as ably as a skier, both physically and mentally within
himself, before taking to the slopes. An unfit skier is destined for an accident. An unfit
skier is a hazard to the ski slopes.. The word "unfit" harnesses a broad range of thoughts.
This same lack of fitness amply applies to our world leaders who lack clean hearts, minds
and the absence of God in their daily lives. Former U.S. Ambassador Phillip Sanchez said
it best: "If we are to survive in this world, we simply have to break down all barriers that
divide us and look for common denominators and solutions that bring us together rather
than divide us." And when you get to know people, you realize that we have much more
in common; therefore, the barrier that was so important in the beginning seems to dissipate
and become less bright.
Throughout our visit this time, there was unrest in Seoul, the mistress of ceremonies
of the biggest free trade agreement on the global stage. It was historic and a bit sad to be
in the same city, witnessing the objections and the protesters. Protesters demonstrated
because.the trade agreement would cost jobs. This trade is reportedly the "agreement for
the 21st century," which, of course, has to be approved by both governments. But as we
continued to hear about the demonstrators and the trade agreement, one of the speakers,
echoing excerpts from Dr. Sun Myung Moon, planted the seed of a "borderless" world.
Any my heart started singing a ballad. Oh, give me a home, where the buffalo roam and
the deer and ... You know the song. Think about it. It's time to turn this global crisis into a
global covenant and live for "peace on earth," 365 days a year. The first step is peace with-
in.
Finally, very special thanks to the UPF and its superb staff for.this mind-altering
experience.
OK, my jet lag has won this round. I am afraid I must yield.

Advisory of Matthews Bridge Closure

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office will be providing staffing to help the Florida
Department of Transportation implement the Mathews Bridge closure plan, sched-
uled to begin on April 16, 2007. For information specific to the bridge closure, alter-
nate routes leading away from downtown, and complete project information please
visit:
www.mathewsbridge.info
The eastbound side of the Mathews Bridge will close at 12:01 am on April 16, 2007
and remain closed during the duration of the construction project. Citizens will be
able to travel westbound into downtown Jacksonville, but will be unable to drive
eastbound (toward the beaches) via the Mathews Bridge at any time. An estimated
45,000 additional vehicles could be traveling on the detour route leading away from
downtown during the work week. JSO is providing traffic control assistance along
the FDOT designated detour.
"We greatly appreciate the FDOT's approval of the off duty police officers we
believe are necessary to effectively move traffic through the alternate route," says
Steve Weintraub, Chief of JSO's Community Affairs and Special Events division.
"We are committed to supporting FDOT's traffic plan to make this less difficult and
as safe and orderly as possible, for the public."
Citizens affected by the Mathews Bridge Closure are advised to use either the
FDOT detour, or to plan their own alternate route. For example; those residents trav-
eling eastbound with destinations at the beaches or East Arlington may consider
using 9A, via Main Street or 1-95 northbound from downtown,
Information can be located by going to www.coj.net/jso and clicking on the pic-
ture of the Mathews Bridge. From there you will find two links: to the Mathews
Bridge Information Site and another link to our JAXGIS maps, which provide
detailed information about Jacksonville and may be helpful in your planning of a
route.

Homicide Numbers Rise A


Way of Life in The Big Easy


Though Terry Hall was
one of four homicides in
New Orleans.on April 2nd.
He became the No. 53n on a
deepening list of New
Orleans murder victims this
year. And he was but one of
four on this day, the most in
one day this year.
The numberss alone are
chilling but. the fact that few
outside his circle of friends
and family marked his
death is more tragic. No
one blamed the police or
the mayor. No one
marched in protest or
demanded action. In a T
modest Baptist church in
eastern New Orleans,
friends and family gave
a young man his last
goodbye, only to wait
patiently for the next vic-
tim.
Unlike some of the vic-
tims- in a similar string of
killings in January one that
sparked a citywide protest
and endless promises of
action from police and politi-
cians Hall did not go out a
martyr, nor did any of the
other three people killed that
day, nor did the three people
killed in the previous three
days.
A week later, family and,
friends tried to explained the
attitude in the neighborhoods
where the killings occurred
as part of a culture of com-
placency about crime.


Others pointed to race:
All of the victims last week
were black, while the vic-
tim in a high-profile homi-
cide in January was a white
woman seemingly targeted
at random by an intruder in
her home. That killing,
however,.came ,on the heels
of another shooting death
thlt sparked citizen out-
rage, that of a black man


Monica Martin at Terry Halls Funeral


who was a band teacher and
a drummer in a brass band.
Mourners wept at Hall's
open casket, and described
their communities as desen-
sitized, even accustomed,
to fatal violence. "I've
watched, I've seen the
crime in this community,"
Monica Ann Martin, a close
family friend, said after the
service. "Everyone keeps it
hush-hush. People know
what their children are
doing but they don't speak
of it."
Martin said she doubts


that will change. Hall's
mother looked resolutely
forward. "What's done is
done, and cannot be
undone," she said. "Life
goes on. I don't -know if
things will change. But life
will go on."
Near the scene of anoth-
er of last week's killings, in
the St. Claude neighbor-
hood, James Grant, a tire
salesman, said the
neighborhood greeted
the death with a collec-
tive shrug. "The out-
rage dies down pretty
quickly here," he said.
"If it don't hit your
block, no one cares,"
People seem to only be
able to feel the emo-
tion of a killing when it
affects their own kin-
folks or close to home.
.In his grease-stained
T-shirt and a sweater cov-
ered in soot, Grant hustled
Tuesday to sell wheels at St.
Claude Used Tires, a ram-
shackle shop at the comer
of Louisa and its namesake
street. Grant has a hard stare
and a work ethic that belies
his age of 24. He said he has
made his fair share of mis-
takes.
"If you are a 'oung
black male with a little
record, no one is going to
call you, hire you," he said.
"But you still got to pay the
rent."

Black men at risk


Charlotte Forum seeks feedback on
how to address critical issues

By Herbert L. White
Editor in chief- The Charlotte Post
Thomas Dunlap has a front-row seat to
what has become of African American
males.
Lack of discipline. Academic under-
achievement. And, often, total disregard for
authority.
"That's really the problem with a lot of
kids,"says Thomas, 14, an eighth-grader at
Davidson IB Middle School (in Charlotte).
"They don't have anybody to watch over
them. Then you mess up your life being
thugalicious."
A town hall meeting won't fix what ails

Statistically, black men are most
likely to drop out of school, earn
less money and wind up behind
bars than their white counterparts.

black men, but it's a start.
Organizer Ahmad Daniels said he hopes
250 participants will attend the April 12
summit at the AT&T building at 300
Brevard St. Panelists include E.E. Waddell
High School Principal Stan Frazier, N.C.
Sen. Malcolm Graham and author Omar
Tyree. Admission is free.
"Brothers are hurting, but we're crying in
the dark," Daniels said. "That's the little boy
in us."
"1 get to see the pathologies up close, but
I'm hopeful we've planted seeds that will be
fruitful," says Reggie Singleton, director of
The Males Place, a support group for boys
and young men.
Much of the emphasis will be on young-
sters, who are most at risk to lag in nearly
every quality of life and death indicator
among American demographic groups.
While academics and activists argue
racism's role, Singleton suggests long-held
but erroneous values.
"I think most of it is a maladaptive way
of achieving manhood," Singleton said.
"Bravado, machismo, going to jail, getting
every girl pregnant much of it stems from.
hundreds of years of slavery, post-slavery
and neoslavery."

Statistically, black men are most likely to
drop out of school, earn less money and
wind up behind bars than their white coun-
terparts. African Americans also have short-
er life expectancy and are less likely to have
health insurance.
No one single focus will improve the
lives of black men and boys, Singleton
admits, but home-grown remedies can lead
the change.
"The single greatest thing that would
improve this generation is the presence of:
fathers," he said. "Subsequently, (boys are)
raising themselves or their peers are raising
them out in the streets."
A renewed emphasis on decision-making
would help, Thomas insists, especially if it
comes from older men. Many of his peers,
he says, are more interested in living for the
moment and instant gratification.
"A lot of guys... don't live with their
fathers," said Thomas, an A-B honor roll
student whose single mother, Melissa, is
principal at Ashley Park Elementary
School,. "So they don't have anyone at home
totell them about making the right choices."
With more attention on crime in the wake
of the fatal shooting of two Charlotte-
Mecklenburg police officers by a 25-year-
old black man, the forum's timing is ironic.
In order for society to move forward,
Singleton says, African Americans have to
provide leadership.
"We can't be talking about nation-build-
ing when we're scared of our boys or leaving
our young people to be devoured by the sys-
tem," he said.
"We have to come up with some mean-
ingful theories so we can live our lives with
dignity and decency."


Experts Predict 5 Major


Hurricanes this Season


The 2007 Atlantic hurri-
cane season should be
"very active," with 17
named storms and nine hur-
ricanes, including five
intense or major hurricanes,
according to two top
research groups.
Colorado State
University researcher
William Gray's Atlantic
Basin Seasonal Hurricane
Forecast for 2007 (revised
as of April 3, 2007), indi-
cates an increase in the
number of storms and the
number of intense hurri-
canes when compared to
his predictions of less than
3 months ago.
The forecast calls for a
total of 17 named storms --
up from 14 predicted in
December and five intense
or major hurricanes up
from three predicted in
December. Intense hurri-
canes are those expected to
have sustained winds of
111 mph or greater.
Gray's forecast says
there is a 74% probability
for at least one major (cate-
gory 3-5) hurricane making
landfall, along the U.S.
coastline this year, com-
pared with the average of
52% over the past century.
That number rops to 50%


for just the U.S. East coast
including the full peninsula
of Florida.
The hurricane season
runs from June 1 to Nov.
30.
Last season had nine
named storms and five hur-
ricanes,
two of
t h e m rn
major. That
was con-
s i d e r e d
sidered
"near nor-
mal" but
fell short of

and gov-
e r n m e n t The Louisiana Si
scientists. 10,000 people to
None hit
the U.S. Atlantic coast -
only the 11th time that has
occurred since 1945.
Long-term averages in
the Atlantic are 9.6 named
storms, 5.9 hurricanes and
2.3 intense hurricanes per
year.
The 2005 season was the
worst on record in the U.S.,
.with 28 named storms,
including 15 hurricanes,
four of which hit the U.S.
The most devastating storm
was Katrina, which leveled

ed to become more destruc-

Hank Aaron
With baseball season now underway we are reminded
that it was 33 years ago last Sunday when Hank Aaron
finally broke the Babe's record of 714 career home runs.
Hank took an Al Downing pitch and sailed it ovet the left
field fence in the fourth inning with the Braves trailing
the Dodgers 4-1, and two runners on base. The 53,775
fans at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium roared.
Baseball had a new home run king, and for Aaron,
"the nighnnare" was over.
S But Hank Aaron says his most important home run
\\ as when he drilled his final round tripper, No. 755.June
20, 1976
In the twilight of his career, with sore knees and a bad
back, Aaron stepped in as a DH against Dick Drago of
the California Angels and belted his 10th homer of the
season in front of his old Milwaukee fans, where his
career had begun.
This year we might well have the opportunity to see
Hank's 755 record broken, but will it be the same sense
of monumental accomplishment?
Frank Robinson
Last Sunday was also an anniversary for Frank
Robinson. It was this week in April 1975 when Frank
Robinson of the Cleveland Indians became first black
manager of a major league baseball team. Robinson lead
the Indians for three years, spent 5 years as manager at
San Francisco, four years with the Orioles and five with
Expos /Nationals.
Robinson will receive the first Jackie Robinson
Society Community Recognition Award this week as part
of a George Washington University celebration marking
the 60th anniversary of the integration of Major League
Baseball.
In 1982 Frank Robinson was inducted into the
Baseball hall of Fame. No one has ever deserved it more
Tiger Woods
At age 20, Tiger turned pro because there was noth-
ing left to win in the amatuer ranks. Right away he
won the Las Vegas International and the
Disney/Oldsmobile Classic earning over $700,000 in
just eight events.
The press was all over the young phenom. He was
redefining the world of professional golf. Young black
athletes would become be taking up the game in droves
we were told. The PGA would benefit, the golfing pub-
lic would benefit and young black golfers would benefit
we were told. That was 1996.
Fast forward to 2007. Tiger has replaced Michael
Jordan as the most recognizable sports figure on the
face of the planet. He will serve and has served -
as inspiration for people of all ages to take up the game
of golf.
But, the PGA has one full-time player of African
Anerican heritage today. Woods is now the only black
on the Tour (and he's twice as Asian as he is black).
That's fewer blacks than at any time since the PGA
revoked its "Caucasian-only" policy in 1961. There are
more blacks on the Champions Tour for over-50
golfers.
Why, what happened?

NFL Cracks Down on


Players Bad Behavior


Patience is running low
at the NFL headquarters.
Commissioner Roger
Goodell cracked down this
week on the player miscon-
duct that's plagued his first
seven months in office, sus-
pending Tennessee's Adam
"Pacman" Jones for the
2007 season and
Cincinnati's Chris Henry for
eight games.
"It is a privilege to rep-
resent the NFL, not a right,"
Goodell said in a released
statement. "These players
and all members of our
league have to make the
right choices and decisions
in their conduct on a consis-
tent basis."
Jones' off-field conduct
has included 10 instances in
which he was interviewed
by police. The most recent
took place during the NBA
All-Star weekend in Las
Vegas. Police there recom-
mended felony and misde-
meanor charges against
Jones after a fight and
shooting at a strip club par-
alyzed one man.
The NFL suspension
could be as short as 10
games, if Jones meets the
conditions set by the NFL
and is cleared in a pending
case in Georgia, as well as
the Las Vegas case, in
which he has yet to be
charged.
Henry was arrested four
times in a 14-month span,
resulting in two benchings
by coach Marvin Lewis and


a two-game league
suspension. He was
one of nine Bengals
arrested in nine
months.
Goodell handed
down the suspen-
sions under the
NFL's existing con-
duct policy and also
announced a new
broader policy that
will allow longer NF
fines and suspensions

for players and
potential penalties against
teams.
Goodell and Gene
Upshaw, executive director
of the NFL Players
Association, met with a
group of players in
February and again last
week and agreed the league
needed a stronger discipli-
nary policy.
The player's response
has been supportive. "You
would think it's necessary
just because of the negative
publicity the NFL is begin-
ning to receive because of
what's happening," said
Henry's teammate, T.J.
Houshmandzadeh, one of
the players at the February
meeting. "It was going on
for an extended period of
time. Each day, each week,
something was happening."
Jones, the sixth overall
pick in the 2005 draft,
starred on the field but has
been plagued with trouble
off it during two seasons
with the Titans. He had four


week in The Atlanta
Journal-Constitution.
Bonds has 735 homers,
20 short of Aaron's career
record. While Aaron has
declined most interview
requests in recent months,
he spoke with Journal-
Constitution columnist
Terence Moore.
Aaron said he wouldn't
attend if Bonds were within
reach of the record when the
San Francisco Giants play at
Atlanta from Aug. 14-16.
"I'd probably fly to West
Palm Beach to play golf,"
Aaron was quoted as saying
in Moore's column. "Again,
it has nothing to do with
anybody, other than I had
enough of it. I don't want to
be around that sort of thing
anymore.

He could be reinstated


L Commissioner Roger Goodell


before season's end if he
lives up to the conditions
and restrictions set by the
NFL that include no further
law enforcement issues;
counseling, education and
treatment under league and
court-ordered programs;
follows restrictions on his
activities agreed to with the
Titans; and a community-
service program submitted
to the league for review and
approval.
"We appreciate the
Commissioner's thoughtful
decision today and the dis-
cipline plan imposed on
Adam Jones," Titans owner
Bud Adams said. "We
respect this decision and are
confident this is in the best
interest of the league and
the team. We are hopeful
that it will achieve the goals
of disciplining the player
and eventually enabling,
him to return to the field of
play. Our goals for Jones:
are consistent with the
league's in that regard."


Sports Briefs

Kirkland, Wa Pro Football Hall of Fame quarter-
back Warren Moon was arrested for investigation of
drunken driving after a trooper stopped him for alleged-
ly speeding. Moon was stopped in downtown Kirkland,
State Patrol Trooper Courtney Stewart said Tuesday. The
former Seattle Seahawks quarterback was arrested early
Friday, taken to the Kirkland Police Department and later
released. His vehicle was impounded, Stewart said.

Forest Park, 1 Darryl Stingley, paralyzed by one of
the most infamous hits in the history of professional foot-
ball, was remembered Tuesday.for the grace with which
he accepted his life-altering injury.
"For almost 30 years, people wanted to hear Darryl
curse God or at least curse the man who took his dreams
away," said the Rev. Edward C. Brown, Stingley's
cousin. "Darryl was a good man. He didn't stop serving
God just because he had a life of suffering and pain. He
lived a life focused on the future and not on the past.'

Atlanta,- Ga Manny Acta hopes a postgame team
meeting will wake up Washington's slumbering offense-
and the Atlanta Braves won their fourth straight game, 8-
3. At 7-1, the Braves are off to their best start since 1995,
when they won their only World Series title in Atlanta.

very handy in a number of
areas. Take them out to
lunch or dinner and woo
them. From Thursday
through sometime
Saturday, don't pout if you
feel misunderstood; rather,
share your perspective
again, with some detail this
time. The stars are on your


side on Saturday night and
Sunday. What will you do
with the fabulous energy?


(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) You've got an
appetite for
knowledge as the
week begins, and
you'll pick up
new stuff with lightning
speed. Just watch out for
coming across as a know-it-
all around Tuesday and
Wednesday; yes, you're
leagues ahead of them, but
rubbing their noses in it
won't endear you to them.
Be; a good teacher and be
beloved. From Thursday
through sometime Saturday,
parties, friends and dates all
have your name on them;
you're the proverbial star of
the show, but you make
everyone else feel like one,
too. Then for the rest of the
weekend, you may just want
to lounge and think.
(Virgo August 23rd thru
September 22nd) A strong
belief may have
you in battle
mode as the week
begins, but
there's a more subtle way to
sway them to your side.
Think it over. Travel's in the
stars around Tuesday and
Wednesday; plan your next
trip, or at least go some-
where local that you keep
meaning to try. Even a new
restaurant can offer a mini-
vacation and broaden your
horizons. From Thursday
through sometime Saturday,
you've got it down cold, but
make sure your explanation
has some warmth. Get out
and about during the rest of'
the weekend or have some
friends over; being around
others charges you up now.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd)
Relationships
may be in flux as
the week begins.
T h rou g h
Wednesday, you've got an
opportunity to build trust
and redefine how you relate
to others, but you have to be
proactive about it. Emotions
are bound to be involved,
but it deserves an equal
amount of thought, too.
From Thursday through
sometime Saturday, the
same-old same-old leaves
you bored. Seek out fresh
experiences and give your
brain something to chew on.
For best results as far as the
rest of the weekend goes,
keep your expectations rea-
sonable and go with the
flow.
(Scorpio October 23rd
thru November 21st) Start
a healthy cycle
',$ as the week
i begins -- do a
favor, commit
to fitness, live in a greener
manner. It's all intercon-
nected, and finding your
place and feeling good
.about it equips you to face
challenges like those that
Tuesday and Wednesday
may bring. With a holistic",
outlook, you'll see new
options for compromising
instead of conquering,
being a part instead of
owning. From Thursday
through sometime
Saturday, take the low-risk
option; keep interpersonal
matters casual and money
matters conservative. As


far as the rest of the week-
end goes, clear your mind
and an answer will arise.
b,


(Sagittarius November
22nd thru December 21st)
Send a sweet note
or issue a certain
in\ ittion as the
\\ eek begins;
love's in the air! But have
your feet on the ground
around Tuesday and
Wednesday, when responsi-
bilities and research
demand your attention.
Arm yourself with as much
knowledge as possible, and
you'll thrive. From
Thursday through some-
time Saturday, your thought
processes are highlighted --
will you make a break-
through? Take time from
the daily grind to allow it.
As far as the rest of the
weekend goes, keep plans
loose; you're liable to
change your mind.
(Capricorn December
22nd thru January 19th)
Nothing's per-
manent -- that's
a truth you may
be facing as the
week begins. Make room
for your attitude and
approach to change along
with shifting circum-
stances. Around Tuesday
and Wednesday, you're
feeling much more com-
fortable. Your work ethic is
strong, but make time for
friends and romance, too --
relationships evolve nicely
now! Streamline your com-
munication from Thursday
through sometime
Saturday; short and sweet
reaches the intended audi-
ence quicker and more
effectively. Avoid procrasti-
nation during the rest of the
weekend.
(Aquarius-January 20th
thru February 18th) The
more freedom
.. you can find for
-l- yourself as the
week begins, the
happier you'll be. Change
up your routine, play hooky
or find something (or some-
one) new that fascinates
you; through Wednesday,
being bored just means
you're not trying. From
Thursday through some-.
time Saturday, some very
positive energy from the
stars kicks in, putting your
personal power into over-
drive -- especially in the
romance department.
Connections can crackle
now. As far as th6 rest of
the weekend, it's time to
calm down and get some
rest, or risk wearing your-
self out.
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th) The
.. week begins
.."' with some mys-
r tery, whether of
the 'where did I
put my keys?' or the meta-
physical l' anet. Most likely
it's a little of both. Around
Tuesday and Wednesday,
however, the mysteries of
love are in the forefront.
You're good at unraveling or
just enjoying them, and you
look fantastic doing it. Plan
to fit in some creative pur-
suits from Thursday through
Saturday; yohr imagina-
tion's primed, while trying
to attend to practical stuff
may confound you. As far as
the rest of the weekend


goes, you might just find
inspiration in an unexpected
place.


A' From Actual Police Reports
ssSHH!
H Did You Hear About?






GUN OR HAMMER, WHAT EVER? An
officer was dispatched to the 4200 block of
Moncrief in reference to a dispute. When she
arrived, witness MH advised her that her friend
CP, the victim, had been holding MH's baby ; .
when defendant, Mr. CT busted into the apart-
ment. MH indicated defendant and CP had a
prior relationship and defendant was extremely
upset when he entered. Defendant pulled a hand-
gun and turned it on CP, as well as the infant.
Defendant then left the scene. Later, the suspect turned himself in at the PMB.
He stated he came home the night of the incident and began arguing with the
victim. The suspect states that he had no gun, that was his tool belt and hammer
in his hand. Okay!

SHE MOVED AND SO DID THE APPLIANCES An officer was dispatched
to the 2000 block of Blair St. He was met by Ms. AK, the victim. Ms. AK stat-
ed that she went to check on the status of her rental property and was informed
by two witnesses that the tenant (suspect) had moved out and taken the refrig-
erator, the microwave oven and the stove with the aide of a family member. The
suspect admitted to taking the previously mentioned items, but had no knowl-
edge of a washer and dryer. She stated that when she moved in with the co-ten-
ant, Mr. AK, there were no such items present. She also indicated that when Mr.
AK subsequently moved out, she remained the lone tenant and was told by Mr.
AK that she could have the items because he'had purchased them from the vic-
tim Ms. AK. The suspect stated that she then had the items moved to her current
residence. She said, "as far as the washer and
... dryer is concerned, I don't remember when I
-" .... last saw them at the residence." The witness-
es stated that the washer and dryer were not
any of the items they observed the suspect
removing. The victim was able to make
arrangements with the suspect to retrieve-the
recovered property the following day. The
officer will attempt to contact and question
_/ the co-tenant concerning this matter.

STOLEN OR NOT, IT WILL BE! An offi-
cer was dispatched to the 2300 block of Automobile Dr. in reference to a report
of a suspicious vehicle parked and abandoned in the woods. Upon his arrival, he
observed the vehicle. It appeared that the last driver was attempting to conceal
it. The complainant (who wishes to remain anonymous) stated that this is a loca-
tion where stolen vehicles are constantly left. The officer contacted NCIC to
find out if the vehicle had been reported stolen. The report came back negative
and there was no telephone number listed for the registered owner so the officer
went to the registered owner's address and got no answer. Though there was no
damage to the vehicle, it appears that the last driver was attempting to hide it.
This is a high crime area. In an attempt to preserve the vehicle, the officer had
it towed before if became vandalized or stolen, if it wasn't already. Huh!

HE SAID NO TO DRUGS An officer was dispatched to the 5900 block of Ft.
Caroline Rd. in reference to a person being cut. Upon his arrival, he met with
witness Ms. BF who stated she looked out-
side her apartment window and observed
her boyfriend, Mr. EH, victim, in a fight
with an unknown male suspect. She
observed her boyfriend push the suspect off
and the suspect cut the victim's hand with an
unknown object. The witness stated she saw
the suspect get into an unknown two door
burgundy vehicle with another unknown
female suspect driving. Victim, Mr. EH stat-
ed he said he was going to a convenience
store adjacent the apartments when the sus-
pect came up to him and asked if he wanted
some drugs. The victim stated he said no and the suspect started to argue with
him. The victim stated the male suspect followed him back to his apartment and
began to fight him. While fighting, the victim stated the suspect cut him on his
right pinky finger with a knife and got into a vehicle and left. The victim refused
to be transported for his injury.

ROBBED OR JUST LATE FOR WORK? An officer was dispatched to the
1000 block of Edgewood Ave. ih reference to a robbery call. Upon his arrival he
met with the victim, a white male, who stated he was walking to the bus stop on
Post St. when two unknown black males got behind him and told him to stop.
The victim said he kept walking and the suspects began to run after him until
they caught up with him. Then the victim said the suspects instructed him to
give up his possessions or they were going
to shoot him. The victim said he didn't see a


gun on either suspect, but both suspects
; went in both of his pockets and took $10.00
out and then fled. Investigation revealed that
the victim did not appear to be stressed
about the incident and did not appear to have
been injured in the process. But, the victim
asked for a ride to work and a phone to use.
S. A search of the immediate area did not
.- reveal any suspects or physical evidence.
...;. Efforts were suspended.

Halle Berri

What Mayv
Role Yet!
By Rych McCain,

She is revered the
world over as one of
the most beautiful
female actress in
Hollywood. Of
course there is the
backlash which
includes haters and
detractors as well. It
all comes with the
territory called suc-
cess and through the
experience; Halle
Berry has main-
tained a true balance
of career and her
personal life despite
the obstacles.
Berry's new movie
Perfect Stranger
may be her best dra-
matical outing yet.
She actually plays
the personalities of
three characters
through the main
one she portrays.
When asked why
she was so passion-
ate about playing
the role of newspa-
per journalist
Rowena Price,
Berry's expression
warms with delight
"I love a charac-
ter that gives me a
chance to grow and
do something differ-
ent," she says. "Ro
was so multi-
faceted. I never
played a character
that played a charac-
ter, who played a
character and that
gave me a chance as

an artist to sort of,
stretch my limits and
challenge my self.
When I read the
script and I got to the
end, I thought 'wow'
I don't know how I'm
going to pull this off
if I can, but I'm
going to go down try-
ing."
In terms of her
personal life, where
is Berry at these
days? She turns seri-
ous
"Always learn-
ing," she says. "As
long as we are here,
if we're logged on at
all to this experience,
then we're learning."
She become ani-
mated again and con-
tinues.
"A magical thing
happened when my
40th birthday came.
It was really magical
in a way for me. I felt
like a light just kind
of went off. Maybe
because I felt like at
40, I had the right to
say and be who I
wanted to be and say
what I wanted to say
and not accept what I
didn't want to accept.
Maybe it was me who
felt the shift. I do
think I've gotten
wiser and learned a
lot of lessons."
What was Berry's
emotional reaction to
reaching the big
Four-Oh in regard to
her future?
"I felt more self
assured and more self
confident," she says
smiling all the while.

year anniversary of the tragic pass-
ing of one of the best that the
Houston rap scene had to offer not
just as an artist, but as a man Big
Hawk aka Screwed Up Click's "5
Star General." Hawk was loved by
everyone that knew him and was
known for his ability as an ambassa-
dor of peace; uniting the often war-
ring factions of Houston's rap music
world something that makes his
senseless unsolved killing even
more tragic. He was someone that
you looked up to and wanted to
emulate. Someone you could
respect. Hawk's wife Meshah will
release an tribute album entitled
Endangered Species featuring
Chamillionaire, Slim Thug, Paul
Wall, Lil Keke, Trae, Devin the
Dude, the whole SUC and many
more.
Chocolate Soul Records will
drop their III Compilation CD April
17 in stores featuring Kindred The
Family Soul, Abstract Mindstate
featuring Kanye West, The Rebirth,
Jurassic 5, Anthony David, W.
Ellington Felton featuring Sy
Smith & 'Raheem DeVaughn and
others. Project MuszEd in partner-
ship with the Berklee College of
Music will sponsor a scholarship
fundraising, Champagne Reception
and Gospel Brunch at the House of
Blues on Los Angeles' Sunset Strip
on Sunday, April 15, 2007. The two
organizations have joined to provide
opportunities in music and art edu-
cation for disadvantaged and inner-
city youth. Tax deductible donations
can be made via PayPal or e-mail
projectmuszed@yahoo.com or call
818-985-6110. Champagne and live
Gospel music should really raise the
roof off that event!
Movies:
The Reaping starrs Hilary
Swank, David Morrissey, Idris
Elba, Annasophia Robb and
Stephen Rea.
Katherine Winter (Swank) does-
n't believe in miracles she only
acknowledges scientific facts..She is
a university professor who goes
around the world debunking mira-
cles by explaining them scientifical-


ly. She is called to a small
Louisiana town to explain bizarre
occurrences that coincide with
the biblical plaques. She takes
along her scientist colleague Ben
(Elba) and they encounter events,
people and happenings that cause
her to catch a hold of her lost
faith.
This is a very good movie and
will keep you on the edge of your
seat. Swank looks very sexy in
this movie even though it is a hor-
ror flick and she is very endear-
ing. Young teen actress Robb
doesn't say anything until toward
the end of the movie but her
facial jesters and body language
speaks volumes as she is the tar-
get of the town's aggression
because they believe she is a
devil child. Of course poor ole
black scientist Ben (Elba) gets
killed. I expected him to go soon-
er than he did. Can a "brotha"
ever live to the end of one of
these flicks in 2007?
Perfect Stranger stars Halle
Berry, Bruce Willis, Giovanni
Ribisi, Gary Dourdan, Richard
Portnow, Patti D'Arbanville and
Clea Lewis.
Newspaper journalist Rowena
Price (Berry) has a dark secret
from her past. In an effort to keep
it, she becomes entangled in an
endless web of lies, deceit and
murder. Big time advertising
agency owner Harrison Hill
(Willis) becomes her chief neme-
ses. This may be Berry's best role
yet. She answers any questions
about her acting chops with a
superb, thrill binding perform-
ance. Willis also steps up to the
plate with his "A" game. He has
never been better! Price's com-
puter geek/genius colleague
Miles (Ribisi) provides the comic
relief but is very crucial to Price's
gameplan. This movie is an
excellent choice if you want a
thrill ride that keeps you guessing
when you've thought you had it
figured out.

Snoop Dogg on the wrong side of the law again:

pleads no contest to gun and drug charges


Snoop Dogg avoided
the very serious prospect
of incarceration from drug
and weapons charges
stemming from an inci-
dent last October when he
pleaded no contest to
felonies Wednesday.
The 35-year-old rap-
per, born Cordozar Calvin
Broadus Jr., was officially
charged on Tuesday of
sale or transportation of
marijuana as well as pos-
session of a gun by a con-
victed felon. The felony
conviction dates back to a
1990 drugs charge.
Police allegedly found
the items in his car at
Burbank airport,
California, on October 25
last year, when the vehicle
was searched after being
left too long in the passen-
ger drop-off area at Bob
Hope Airport in Burbank
The cops found a gun and


marijuana in his vehicle.
At that time, Snoop
Dogg was taken into cus-
tody, booked for being a
felon in possession of a
firearm and transporting
pot, and then he was
released on $35,000 bail.
It got worse in November,
when the police pulled
over Snoop. Dogg again,
acting on a follow-up
warrant that gave the
police the right to pull
him over at any time
because he was out on
bail from the Burbank
incident.
Snoop has famously
avoided prison in the past
despite numerous arrests,
with hip-hop rival Suge
Knight founder of Death
Row Records even
going so far as to claim
that Snoop is a police
informant;
In an interview last
December, Suge claimed


that Snoop was "the only
guy who never goes to jail
no matter what. I don't
like rats."
Snoop's lawyer
Donald Etra said the latest
charges were "fully
expected" and would be
"resolved" in court.
His arraignment was
held in Pasedena Superior
court and heagreed to five
years' probation and 800
hours of community serv-
ice.
Superior Court Judge
Terry Smerling placed
conditions on the proba-
tion, including that only
400 hours of the commu-
nity service could involve
Snoop's youth football
league.
The judge also ruled
that Snoop Dogg could
not have any gang mem-
bers in.his entourage and
must notify the probation
department before leaving


... '


I-
Snoop Dogg
the state. The rapper must
also provide authorities a
DNA sample and he must
have a medical permit if
he uses marijuana.
In March he was
forced to cancel a UK
tour with P Diddy after
authorities refused him an
entry visa.
He was also held by
police in Sweden last


month on suspicion of
using illegal drugs, but
was later released after ,
questioning.
In 1996, he was
acquitted of a murder
charge after the death of
an alleged street-gang
member killed by gunfire
from the vehicle in which
Snoop Dogg was travel-
ing.

Halle cont'd from A-1


be and don't think I
felt confident enough
to do that before."
Berry also made it
clear that she doesn't
care what people
Ahink anymore.
Berry recently
received a star on the
Hollywood Walk of
Fame and was
thrilled to no end
about becoming part
of the history of that
part of Hollywood.
She also dropped a
bombshell that she is


actually going to
shave her head bald
for real, on camera in
an upcoming movie
called Nappily Ever
After. Berry has
totally become at
ease with her sexuali-
ty on film. Where
dose that comfort
zone originate?
"I think that also
comes with 40," she
opines. "Just getting
older, I've really
become comfortable
with my sexuality
and making no excus-
es for it anymore. It's


part of being a
woman; its part of
what empowers us
when we are smart
enough to know how
to use it. The charac-
ter of Ro certainly
knew how to use it
and I think I've been
learning."'
Berry also adds
that she still wants to
become a mom.
Check her out in
Perfect Stranger, it is
definitely a Halle
Berry that you
haven't seen before.
