In court papers, the pros-
ecutors named Ronald
"Tenad" Washington as the
armed accomplice of a sec-
ond unidentified gunman
who shot Master Jay inside
his New York recording stu-
dio, 24/7, on October 30,
2002. Washington is also a
suspect in the 1995 fatal
shooting of Randy Walker,
who was a very close asso-
ciate of Tupac Shakur.
According to a witness,
'Jam MasterJay'-Jason Mizell
Washington is the man who
came into the studio wear-
ing a black sweat suit,
embraced Mizell and pulled
out a .40 caliber pistol and
opened fire. The first round
missed Mizell but a second
one entered the left side of
his head and whomever did
the shooting, disappeared.
Washington was identified
as the person who ordered
those in the studio to the
floor and acted as a cover
for the shooter.
Prosecutors claim that

Georgia Town Requires Residents to Own a Gun
Kennesaw, Georgia is north of Atlanta and in 1982, a gun ordinance was passed that
required all heads of a household to own a firearm and ammunition in response to Morton
Grove, Illinois law that banned guns to reduce crime. Residents said that when the law was
passed, there was a substantial drop in crime and even though the town has grown from
5,000 in 1.982 to 30,000, the law is still in place and crime is still low.
According to reports, one resident, 76-year-old 'Wildman' Myers still feel he is the
keeper of the flame and has a downtown shop of artifacts that include a sign that reads:
"No Dogs Allowed, No Negroes, No Mexicans." On the sign, someone crossed out "No
Dogs" and added "Dogs Allowed."
Abortion Procedure Banned
For the first time since the court established a woman's right to an abortion in 1973, the
Supreme Court justices upheld a nationwide ban on a specific abortion method, called 'par-
tial-birth' abortion or 'late term abortion.' The justices said that the 2003 law does not vio-
late a woman's constitutional right to an abortion or to preserve her health.

A Questionable Child Arrest
Marian Wright Edelman
President, Children's Defense Fund
MAY E. FORD
What goes through a
police officer's mind when
he's handcuffing a child?
That's not a rhetorical ques-
tion. On March 13th, a
police officer arrested
Mungo, Jr., at his home in a
low-income Black neigh-
borhood in East Baltimore,
Based on the officer's
claim that he was riding a
dirt bike on the sidewalk,
Gerard was taken into cus-
tody and brought to a
police station where the
police took his fingerprints
and mug shot.
According to newspaper
reports, he was handcuffed
to a bench at the station and
interrogated by the police.
I'm not relating an account
of the arrest of a homicide
suspect or drug kingpin.
This is about a seven-year-
old Black child.
Among the many things
that are alarming about this
incident is that it's not iso-
lated. The arrests of Black
and Latino children, mainly
from poor communities,
are becoming disturbingly
And those hauled off in
handcuffs are getting
younger and younger. In
arresting Gerard, the police
brought him to a yawning
CLARA FRANCES McLAUGHLIN
portal of America's "Cradle
to Prison Pipeline" that fun-
nels children and teens by
the tens of thousands down
channels that lead to arrest,
and even death.
In its major new Cradle
to Prison Pipeline
Initiative, the Children's
Defense Fund has found
that the prison pipeline is
made up of a complex array
of social, economic and
Prominent among them
are poverty and race but
other components include
struggling families, poor
and depressed communi-
ties, limited access to
health and mental health
schools, broken or unfair
child welfare and juvenile
justice systems, unequal
law enforcement and a
political ethos that places

him when he fled into his
home. When a police
supervisor finally inter-
vened at the request of
Gerard's mother, he com-
pletely mishandled the situ-
ation by shouting at the
child, "Do you know what
you did wrong, son?"
I come back to my orig-
inal question. When a
police officer is closing a
pair of handcuffs around
the wrists of a child, does
his common sense tell' him
that what he is doing is
wrong? There are more
Was the officer not able
to make the distinction
between a young child and
a dangerous adult felon?
Has he numbed himself
from imagining such a
thing happening to his own
child or nephew? A senior
police official noted that

cer such as talking with the
parent or just confiscating
the bike. Why weren't these
It would be a mistake to
focus solely on one police-
man. What happened to
young Gerard may indicate
that the arresting officer is
operating in an official
environment that tolerates
or winks at such arrests and
that he needn't fear facing
any sanction for his actions
from higher-ups. No doubt,
the Police Department's
zero-tolerance arrest policy
initiated by former Mayor
Martin O'Malley, now
Maryland's governor, con-
tributed to that environ-
It would appear that the
leaders of the Baltimore
Police Department at all
levels have taken this
mindless zero tolerance in
law enforcement to
extremes. Reprehensible as
this incident was, the dam-
age done extends beyond a
seven-year-old boy. This
arrest sends a message to
the residents of East
Baltimore that if a child can
be scooped up for the most
trivial of infractions, then
no one is beyond the
vagaries of law enforce-
ment run amok.
If you go to the
Department website, its
says: "Protect and Serve the
Citizens of Baltimore." In
Gerard's case, who was
protected? And who was
served? Not Gerard.
The police whom we're
supposed to call when we
need help have told this
child he's a criminal. The
trauma of this experience
has dealt a deep blow to his
self-image. And that is
something that should
never happen to any child.
The whole affair leaves us

All That Jazz 2007
It was surprisingly different this year for the 2007
Jacksonville Jazz Festival. Why? Well there were headliners
each day and the first night started with a great big 'BANG.'
Having a late start, we missed the Great American Jazz
Piano Competition, the Noel Freidline Group and Von
Barlow at the Florida Theatre. We kicked off things person-
ally with George Benson and Al Jarreau. Wow! Those two
had fantastic synergy together and they did their own 'thing'
separately and then a whole lot together! They sang most of
everyone's favorites during their ninety minute 'set.'
The Ritz Theatre & LaVilla Museum featured Urban
Jazz Coalition as the opening performer. Trotting over after
the music ended at Met Park was not successful due to park-
ing. We called it a night with thoughts of great jazz for
We decided to spend our Saturday at the Florida Theatre
and that was a great decision as we thoroughly enjoyed Jazz
Violinist Ms. Regina Carter and the McCoy Tyner Trio.
Earlier that afternoon Jazz Artist Ms. Diane Schuur had
wowed the crowd performing with the River City Band.
Although most could not get to all of the venues there
was enough jazz to whet even the most thirsty jazz devotee's
thirst. It was all very, very grand!
The Lion King on the First Coast
When I learned that the Lion King was coming to the
First Coast, I had mixed emotions as I had spent so many
weekends singing through the Lion King video with my late
grandson Mark Gerard Singleton, II. And yet I wanted to
see the stage production. Not only was it the very, very best,
I could feel my grandsons spirit throughout the show and I
could hear his little toddler voice singing the songs. It was
indeed a euphoric evening. Had time allowed I would have
planned a repeat.
As everyone left the Moran Theatre there was laughter
and smiles. It's no wonder my former colleague Mrs.
Fannie Green was there for her second time.
I know I will see The Lion King on stage again and

While the Virginia Tech tragedy took place over 500 -
600 miles from the. colleges in southeastern Georgia and
Northeastern Florida, it's impact on local schools is quite
real. As one Armstrong Atlantic State University official in
Savannah said last week, "This tragedy probably for
every campus is a major wake up call."
Armstrong Atlantic State University
"People think of campus communities as generally being
safe environments," said Bill Megathlin, assistant to the
president at Armstrong Atlantic State University. "You'd like
to think something like that couldn't happen. But you just
can't say that."
The thought of such a tragedy occurring on a sleepy
Savannah-area campus is as unimaginable as the bloodshed
that occurred in rural Blacksburg.
But Greg Northrup, a senior in the Pamplin College of
Business at Virginia Tech, whose parents recently moved to
"We're an educational facility, and
there's always that balancing act between
being oppressive and keeping the safety and
the security of the students, "
Savannah, described how the idyllic setting of his small-
town campus was destroyed by one unexpected act.
"Over thirty of my fellow Hokies have been senselessly
murdered today on a campus that can normally be described
as Utopian," he wrote in an e-mail.."No one can believe that
this would happen in Blacksburg, and many people initially
refused to take it seriously.".
Georgia Southern University
All Savannah area college campuses have plans to
respond to a campus crisis, which are reviewed and updated
"As the unexpected occurs it reminds us to expect the
unexpected," said Georgia Southern University spokesman
Whole sections of policy manuals and student handbooks
describe how to respond to fires, hazardous materials, suspi-
cious packages, storms, bomb threats, weapons and fights.
Savannah State University
Savannah State, has constructed a fence around its
perimeter and limits access to two guarded gates during reg-
ular business hours. Officials there don't even permit water
guns, Halloween masks or anything that covers the face or
alters a person's identity.
Text messaging alerts are one of the most effective meth-
ods of warning students in a crisis situation, according to
Savannah College of Art and Design
The Savannah College of Art and Design's emergency
text-messaging service'will begin Friday. Officials installed
the Connect-ED system to contact students, faculty and par-
ents by phone and e-mail last summer and found that it suc-
cessfully reached 91 percent of its student body.
The product, created by the California-based NTI Group
Inc., is designed specifically for use on college campuses,
and can deliver messages to thousands of people in a matter
University of Florida
In Gainesville, Lt. Mitch Walsh of the University of
Florida Police Department said the. department would study
what happened at Virginia. Tech to improve strategies for
dealing with a similar incident. Protocols are already in
place to approach an "active shooter" Walsh said, but any
event like this provides potential lessons.
UPD officers monitor dormitories and respond to any
incidents at campus hoItinig, but armed officers are not
staffed at residence halls. Walsh said UPD aspires to provide
security without creating an "oppressive" environment.
"We're an educational facility, and there's always that
balancing act between being oppressive and keeping the
safety and the security of the students," he said.
UF President Bernie Machen expressed his condolences
to the Virginia Tech community.
As president of the University of Utah, Machen fought to
prohibit firearms from being brought on campus, despite
some local opposition. The university has since reached a
compromise with the Utah Legislature, which allows the
university to ban guns from areas of high sensitivity like
dormitories, but not the entire campus.
At UF, no weapons are allowed on campus.
Officials at Tallahassee's three higher education campus-
es are also reexamining how they would react to a similar
campus emergency today.
"I think we were all cruising along, and this has been a
big eye-opener for us," said Alice Maxwell, the communi-
cations director at Tallahassee Community College. "Now
it's time for us to take an even closer look ."
Maxwell said the college would likely look at ways to
heighten awareness of suspicious activities among students
and other campus users.
Florida State University
Florida State University president T.K. Wetherell said
FSU formed a committee as early as Monday that includes
the police department and the vice-president of student
affairs to look at how to reach out to Virginia Tech and what
lessons can be learned from the incident.
He added that FSU's compact campus 40,000 students
on 425 acres downtown -- made it more likely that police
could respond quickly and that word of an incident would
"I would think if someone tries to walk across the cam-
pus with a firearm, somebody is going to raise a question,"
FSU officials said the school's police department is con-
sidered to be one of the leading agencies in the ACC when
it comes to campus security.
The school's police chief said his agency tries to be
proactive and take steps to head-off a tragedy like the one
that occurred Monday, but Chief David Perry admitted there
is no way to make a campus totally safe.
Trudie Kibbe speaks from a more poignant memory of
tragedy. More than 40 years later, Trudie Kibbe who is now
Trudie Kibbe Reed, president of Bethune-Cookman
University, was a student at the University of Texas, and on
the street when Charles Whitman, a 25-year-old graduate
student suffering from depression, killed his wife and moth-
er and then climbed the tower and began shooting students
and passerbys. Before authorities could kill him, Whitman
shot more than 40 people, killing 16
Students gathered Tuesday at Bethune-Cookman this
week for a vigil to remember the victims of Monday's carm-
pus mass murder at Virginia Tech.
President Reed urged students to try to transform their
fear into empathy.
Jasmine Carnell, a junior from Arlington, Va., said she
was concerned about several of her friends from high school
who now attend Virginia Tech. The news Monday reminded
Carnell of Sept. 11, 2001, when she was a high school soph-
omore and knew people who worked in the Pentagon.
"I was completely taken aback." she said. But she was
comforted by Kibbe Reed's recollections, saying they give the
university president a sense of understanding that's "really
important" when senseless violence corrupts innocence.
NRA Setback, As House
Quashes Gun at Work Bill
With the tragic details of the worst gunman-gone-mad
massacre in the U.S. history, a Florida House committee on
this week quashed a NRA backed bill that would have pre-
vented businesses from telling cimploy c, they can't have
firearms locked in their cars at work.
The measure isn't being sold as an issue about guns.
Supporters portrayed the bill as a way to protect employees
from searches by their employer of their personal cars at
work for any reason. It would have also made it clear that a
worker's car is his personal property, off-limits to the
The measure has split the Republican Party because two
of its big financial backers the business community, and
the NRA are at odds.

While some of this online information may concern per-

The Amsterdam News
Set the Standard for
Established by James H. Anderson on December 4, 1909
with an initial capital of $10, The New York Amsterdam
News has been one of the leading black weekly newspapers
for most of the 20th century. Owing to its location in the
heart of Harlem, The Amsterdam News was the mouthpiece
for one of the largest African American communities in the
United States. It placed particular emphasis on covering the
black community's society news: weddings, engagements,
births and charity events. At its height it had a circulation of
over 100,000. By the mid 1940s it was one of the four lead-
ing black newspapers in the country, along with The
Pittsburgh Courier, The Afro-American, and The Chicago
The Amsterdam News was named after the avenue on
which James H.

issues of the A

home at 132 F
business offices Amsterdam News Delivery Truck
to Harlem in 1910. During this early period, between the
1910s and '20s, renowned black journalists such as T.
Thomas Fortune wrote for and edited the paper.
In 1926, Sadie Warren, the wife of Edward Warren, one
of The Amsterdam News' first publishers, purchased the
paper. It was resold on January 10, 1936 to two West Indian
physicians, Clelan Bethan Powell and Phillip M. H. Savory,
who served respectively as editor-publisher and secretary-
treasurer. Under their management, the now semi-weekly
paper became the first African American newspaper to have
all of its departments unionized. During this period, the
paper began to focus on not only local, but national events
as well. Many prominent African Americans including
W.E.B. Du Bois, Roy Wilkins, and Adam Clayton Powell,
Jr., contributed columns and articles to The Amsterdam
News. Marvel Cooke, who began her journalistic career
during the Harlem Renaissance, joined the staff, becoming
the paper's first female news reporter.
The Amsterdam News championed numerous civil rights
causes. During World War II it joined forces with other
black papers to fight for civil rights in the armed forces. In
the 1950's and '60s The Amsterdam News was at the fore-
front in chronicling the events of the civil rights movement
such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Alabama, the
Freedom Riders bus burning incident, and numerous riots.
The paper was the first to focus attention on Malcolm X,
and in 1958 began publishing his column "God's Angry
In 1971, the paper was purchased for $2.3 million by a
group of investors which included Percy E. Sutton, a former

Wilbert A. Tatum and several Harlem business associates
bought the paper in 1983, eventually acquiring controlling
Matthews Bridge Lane Closures and Detours
Frustrate Divers in First Week of the Project
With less than one week into the project,
Jacksonville's commuters have had enough of
the lane closures and traffic detours that are
part of what we are coming to know as the
Mathews Bridge project. Not surprisingly, calls
for a change in the grand plans are getting loud-
Some city leaders said they are siding with
drivers, agreeing the Mathews Bridge work has
already caused too much of a traffic mess. The
road work is scheduled to last 90 days, but the
department is being pressured to rethink what
its doing with traffic.
Since the first of the week, the state e"
Department of Transportation (DOT) has been
shutting down eastbound lanes of the bridge to replace the
grating. The lane closures have caused major traffic issues as
commuters leave the city and head home in the evenings.
The DOT has been coming under fire since the Mathews
Bridge detours were put in place. Many drivers said they
have been delayed for more than an hour at a time during the
evening rush hour, calling the delays and traffic a major
The city, the DOT and other agencies have been inundat-
ed with e-mails similar to this one: "This is the worst
planned project I have ever witnessed."
Councilman Lake Ray said he is going to introduce leg-
islation that suggests the DOT rework the current plan and
switch directions of the lanes left open on the bridge to
accommodate rush hour traffic -- in the morning traffic
would head toward downtown and in the afternoon it would
head toward the beach. A practice that is commonly used
when high volume lanes are restricted to one-way use during

For Adults and Kids, the
Shrimp Festival has it All!
It's less than two weeks away, May 4-6 to be exact!
Fernandina Beachs biggest annual tourist event is the Isle of
Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, held in the historic district of
Fernandina Beach (always held the first weekend of May
If you like shrimp, live music, and browsing fine arts &
crafts, antiques, etc., this is one of the best events on the
East Coast, so don't miss it!
This festival showcases the creations of more than 300
award-winning artists and craftspeople from all over the
country. You'll find original works in oils, acrylics, water-
color, pottery, sculpture, metal, wood photography, plus
lots of unique jewelry, crafts, and fine antiques. The Shrimp
Festival is a sizable event, so if you desire to see everything,
make sure you give yourself plenty of time. You can cer-
tainly spend an entire day enjoying the festival and seeing
all the exhibits.
The Shrimp Festival's musical entertainers get many
members of the festive crowd "swinging to the music." A
wide variety of music is scheduled during the festival,
including Jazz, Pop, Rock, Beach Music, Folk, Country, and
Big Band). Past performers have included The Drifters,
Beatlemania, The Swingin' Medallions, John Cafferty and
the Beaver Brown Band, to mention a few.
ed. It's something we have to take a look at. It has to be done.
The DOT has to be held to a higher standard on this and
come to the assistance of the city," Ray said. However, the
DOT doesn't seem to be budging. Staff members said the
current plan works and switching the traffic flow at rush
hour would only create problems elsewhere. The DOT said
just about as many people head into town as those leaving
during rush hour. DOT has made one compromise -- con-
struction work on the Dames Point Bridge will be moved.
The Dames Point Bridge is one of the detours. t
The mayor's office said it agrees and it would like to see
the traffic flow switch directions at rush hour as well or for
the DOT to consider having traffic traveling both east and
west on the lanes that are open.
DOT has made one compromise -- construction work on
the Dames Point Bridge will be moved. The Dames Point
Bridge is one of the detours.
"What we are going to do is pull up the cones, move them
over to the other side, and that should help the evening
detour traffic," said Mike Goldman of the DOT.

I'm a newlywed and now I realize that I don't want to be mar-
I dated my boyfriend for 6 months and things were great. Now
that we live together, I see things I don't like, he's not nice any-
more and I feel stressed out. I wish things could be the same as
when we were dating. Our intimacy is suffering and I don't
know what to do. How can I figure out what has happened and
why this new marriage is so bad?
Married But Miserable Memphis, TN
The marriage is fine other than the fact you got caught up after a
short time and married someone you didn't know well enough. The drama, stress and
responsibility begin the day after the wedding. You now have to look at the good, the
bills and the ugly which comes with the territory. Have a talk with your husband and
share your fears and feelings. As a couple he's there to help sort through things and
get better adjusted to this new marriage.
I have an issue with my loud neighbor. She is so rude and disrespectful and has no
regards for the rest of us in the apartment complex. We're forced to listen to her loud
music, she has company coming in and out and her place is always one big party.
Several of us have joined together asked her to tone it down but she laughs and says
she can do as she pleases as long as she pays her rent. What other options do we have
to deal with this headache?.
Annoyed On-Line Reader
You can file a complaint and the first stop should be the on-site manager's office. If this
resource isn't helpful then you should contact the management company. Yes, your
neighbor pays rent but you pay as well and are entitled to a decent amount of peace and
quiet. Once this is done, boundaries should be established. On another note, if she vio-
lates the noise ordinance after hours, you can call the police as a guarantee for a good
I broke up with my boyfriend for another guy and now I realize this was a mistake. I
had a good man and I should've listened to my family and friends as they told me I
should've stayed with him. I was seeking thrills and excitement. This caused me to be
abused, cheated on and we broke up anyway. I want to get my boyfriend back and I'm
not sure what to do. I've apologized but nothing seems to work.
Heartbroken and Torn San Diego, CA
The story never changes when one thinks the grass is greener on the other side.
However, in your case, you had a crew telling you what to do but you chose not to lis-
ten. It serves you right and your ex-boyfriend shouldn't have anything else to do with
you. Your apology is nice but look at it from his side as you expect him to return after
being with another man. Get over it, learn from your mistakes and if he comes back,
fine and if not, keep it moving.

As globalization becomes a part of everyday life,, J
commit to brushing up on customs, cultures and lan-
guages. Kissing is a welcoming gesture. It is a cus- -
tom dear to the hearts of all cultures. It's always
straightforward. It's a natural door-opener, so as we
open our hearts to our cultural exchange journey, i
herewith is the Art of Kissing 101, globally. "
Music, smiles, kisses and a baby's cry are univer-
sal signatures. They are all in the same language. Dogs, cats and bears lick their off-
spring. Horses and cows rub noses and necks. Birds nestle together. All of mankind
kisses. Mankind has been kissing since Adam and Eve.
The Druids considered the mistletoe to be a sacred plant and believed it had
miraculous properties. Whenever enemies met under the mistletoe in the forest, they
had to lay down their arms and observe a truce until the next day. From this obvious-
ly came the custom of hanging a ball of mistletoe from the ceiling and exchanging
kisses as a sign of friendship and goodwill. This adaptation has existed as barriers in
some countries in others it has increasingly relaxed. For the French, kissing is a
way of life and multiple kisses are normal. Paris adopted a four kiss greeting years
ago and has stuck to it. The sequence is left cheek first always.
In Brittany they follow a three kiss routine and in other parts of France they
restrict themselves to a restrained two kiss greeting. In the Netherlands, you always
begin and end your kissing on the same cheek. Three kisses are expected. Right
cheek first is the rule there. Kissing in Italy is restricted to very close friends or fam-
ily. The number of kisses is optional. Hugs and handshakes are good alternatives for
If you are about the same age as the person you are greeting, one kiss is the rule
in Belgium. In Spain the kissing rule is strictly right cheek first. Austria and
Scandinavia are each content with the two kiss ritual. Germany tends to restrict kiss-
ing to family and very close friends. This is also customary in the United States. In
the United Kingdom kissing is still under raised eyebrows. The British are somewhat
shy of physical contact and opt for a handshake or nod as the safest form of greet-
Do you kiss? When do you kiss? Who did you kiss last? Do you remember your
first kiss? Did it generate an electric current? Aw shuckin now!!! Kissing is most
defined as the starting point of sexual love. But there are varying forms of kissing.
For example, there is the kissing of the ring of the Pope, the maternal kiss of a moth-
er, friends greetings, the kiss that a King expects from his subjects. The "cheek-to-
cheek" under the hat kiss was designed by Baptist women who greet each other fash-
ionably with their Sunday hats on.
There'are kissing games. Remember playing "post office?" Kissing booths at the
country fair? Hanging of the mistletoe, which has a different meaning now. Are you
familiar with marathon kissing contests? (By the way, the world record is 15 hours
set by a young couple in Chicago.) Today there is the French soul kiss, perfected by
the French; vacuum kiss, spiritual kiss (which is a kiss with your eyes). Have you
been spiritually kissed today? (I think I will leave that one alone.) Dancing kiss, elec-
tric kissing parties, bite kiss and the ole fashioned hand kiss, which is still called the
hand kiss and means the same thing too. The 21st century gave us more fathers open-
ly kissing and hugg inog their children in public. And we openly have kissing and hug-
ging of the same sex in public.
Pucker up. Unleash the shackles of prudishness. Kisses cost nothing publicly or
privately. So kiss on and let's vote the mistletoe back into office.

men behind the firing of Imus, made a mistake and was for-

his wife forgive him?"

daughters, and a listener of Imus for about five years agrees.

this past Saturday in Brunswick, Georgia. Mrs. Harris
was the co-owner with her husband Lester of Dukes

In a February interview with The Florida Star Gina
said Duke's Barbeque started with dinner for their three
boys. Originally, the idea of a carwash was what they had
in mind, says one of the owners.
We would cook lunch for our boys (barbeque on the
grill), and as we were cooking our daily meals, the cus-
tomers who were getting their cars washed would want to.
share our lunch. Well, we couldn't afford to give them
the food, so we shared our lunch for a small fee.
The rest is history. We came up with .a name (The
owner's nickname "Duke") and people started coming to
share lunch with us.
Duke's Barbeque is located at 3301 Norwich St., in
Brunswick, GA in the old Suntrust Bank Building.

THE lTAL L PAG I
It was 60 years ago last Sunday when Jackie
Robinson left home for his first day at work for Mr.
Branch Ricky and the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Robinson told his wife "I'll be wearing No 42 just in
case you have trouble picking me out".
Robinson's ability to distinguish himself as a player
and as a person, is why so many players donned No. 42
this past Sunday in tribute to Jackie Robinson.
Possibly the most eloquent of all observations of the
Jackie Robinson phenom was that of Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., who was 18 in 1947. Dr. King said that
Robinson was "a sit-inner before sit-ins, a freedom rider
before freedom rides."
For a sport that badly needs to find a way to rejuve-
nate the interest of the black community, Sunday's trib-
ute to Jackie Robinson was a first step.
Historians will debate Jackie Robinson's contribution
to the civil rights effort forever but, within a decade, the
doctrine of separate but equal, which had governed race
relations in the United States since the dawn of the
1900s, was thrown out. The U.S. Supreme Court deci-
sion in Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka in
1954, struck down one of the biggest legal barriers that
blacks had to hurdle.
Other changes would soon follow, and the civil rights
movement quickened its pace from there as black stars
like Larry Doby, Willie Mays and Don Newcombe con-
tinued to prove what many of us already knew that
they could compete and play alongside white ballplayers.
Orange and Blue Game
The University of Florida football team capped its
2007 spring season with the annual Orange and Blue
Debut before a crowd of 47,500 fans at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium last Saturday afternoon.
It is a game I seldom miss but business had me in
Arizona for the weekend. I guess that's why we have
Tim Tebow's Blue defeated Cameron Newton's
Orange, 27-20. It was only the fourth Blue win in the
past 12 seasons for whatever that means.
One thing that was interesting was Cameron
Newton's passing. Armed with the lesser of the receiving
corp, he passed for 20 of 30 for a total of 275 yards
against Tebow's 17 of 27 for 216 yards. I should also
point out that Newton was sacked 4 times.
I am not suggesting that there is a Quarterback con-
troversy in Gainesville Urban Myer is not going to
allow that but it sure looks like the Gators have some
serious depth behind the center. That should make the
Gator diehards happy since Myer's option offense has a
tendency to take it's toll on the Quarterback.
The TPC is less than two weeks away. The first prac-
tice rounds start Monday May 7th. If you have never
gone to a Championship Golf tournament, do yourself a
favor. You will see the best golf in the world played on
one of the most beautiful courses in the world. It's right

#1 Noles Sweep
Va Tech Series:
Dumped by Gators
Florida State held on to it's No 1 rank-
ing by sweeping the visiting Va. Tech
Hokies. Florida State raced out to an early
lead and pounded out 16 hits Friday

Saturday saw the closest game of the
series as Florida State got a sacrifice fly
RBI by Brandon Reichert in the bottom of
the eighth to break a 3-3 tie and give the
Noles a 4-3 victory over VT.
Junior Ryan Strauss threw seven strong
innings to lead the Noles to an 8-5 victory
over Virginia Tech Sunday afternoon. The
Noles again got 16 hits including 10 from
the bottom four of the order to complete
the three-game sweep of the Hokies. The
win kept FSU perfect at home with a 30-0
mark in 2007.
Wednesday night the Noles hosted the
Gators in an effort to gain revenge for their
16-7 drubbing of two weeks ago. But the
Gators, smarting from being swept by
Arkansas ended the Noles home winning
streak at 30 with a 5-4 win. The victory
enabled the Gators to capture the regular-
season series from both the Seminoles and
Miami in the same canrmpdiin for the first
time since 1996 and marked FSU's first
loss at home since May 20, 2006

The Gators continued to struggle in the
second game as Duke Welker went 8 1/3

reported that Mr. W (suspect) pointed a gun at him
and made a threat to shoot him. When the officer
searched the suspects car, he found a 380 crome
plated. semi-automated weapon with one round in
the chamber and six rounds in the magazine clip.
The victim said he and his girlfriend Ms. B (wit-
ness) and their two children pulled into the parking
lot of a food store. The victim said the suspect was in front of them and stopped so
they went around him to park, when he did, the suspect pulled along side them and
started cursing and told them that "you can get killed or kill someone driving like
that'' while continuing to curse at them. The victim said when he started cursing the
suspect back, he pulled a handgun and pointed it at him stating he would shoot him.
The suspect told the officer he had a gun in his hand, but did not point it at the vic-
tim. The suspect was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
WAS IT THE FOOD OR THE DRUGS? two officers were dispatched to the
2000 block ofYulee St. in reference to an armed fight. While enroute to the call, the
dispatcher informed the officers of an alleged firearm being in a blue scooter. Upon
their arrival, they recovered the weapon from underneath the seat. Ms. M (the vic-
tim) advised she and the suspect argued over food the suspect wanted to eat. She
stated that she snatched the food from the suspect, who then grabbed her by her hair
and then grabbed a bottle and threw it at her, but missed her and hit Mrs. W (victim
2). Mr. M (victim 1) stated she then ran outside towards the vehicle where she
knows the suspect keeps his firearm. She said she feared the suspect would harm her
so she'retrieved a chain from a gate to try and
prevent the suspect from getting the firearm
..... from the car. She stated that as all parties exited
Sthe residence, an unknown male suspect pointed
a firearm at the parties involved. She stated the
unknown suspect ran after hearing police sirens
approaching. During a search of the vehicle, the
officers found a 600 ml clear measuring device
containing a white powder substance and a razor
blade wrapped in newspaper underneath the seat
of the vehicle. The suspect was arrested.
It's the biggest night of the year, and you've got some big decisions
to make. Thankfully, taffeta and polyester suits are still out (unless it's
an 80s theme). But aside from what to wear, there's where to eat, what
to do after and how to live through the whole thing without drinking,
drama or tearing your dress (especially if you're a dude 'cause that
would be weird).
The point is, some people freak out so much about making prom
perfect that they end up hating it. Funny because the best thing to do
is to be yourself. Don't try so hard. Just let it happen.
Why worry? Just take a minute to THINK. And that's where
THINK.Prom can help.
We know you think all year. Prom is time to let go, right?
Absolutely. But THINK.Prom is more than a one-time deal. It's common
sense and a commitment to partying sober before, during and after
prom. And it means if you want to play dress-up, rent a sweet ride or
drop a few bills on a steak dinner, that's totally cool. Just try not to look
like a rookie. Here's how:
Think about yourself. You know what's up. And you know you can
do this without drinking. You just have to decide.
Think about cash. Now do we have your attention? Enter the "Party
Safe. Party Sober." Video Scrapbook Contest, and your superior wis-
dom and creative genius could score you $500.
Think about your friends. It seems like everybody knows that one
guy or girl who just has to cross the line. But it's all fun and games until
someone gets hurt, right? What may seem funny at first is actually real-
ly serious. So put your buds in the back seat and make sure they get
Think about your ride. Before you go, decide who's driving. And no,
that doesn't mean the guy who thinks he's best after a few beers.
Driving better with a buzz? Do you know how messed up that sounds?
Remember, you can create, protect or ruin a reputation all in one
night. So check out THINK.Prom and make sure your prom is a great
Will prom be a blur or a memory? It's your call.
