who have not served in the military. However, researchers found that nearly one in four
veterans in state prisons was there as a sex offender, compared with one in ten nonvet-
eran inmates. The report also showed that veterans in prison were older, more educat-
ed, more likely to have been married and more likely than nonveterans to be incarcer-
ated for violent crimes of offenses against women or children.

NNPA Columnist


When people die, even the
racist ones, there is an inexpli-
cable rush to trumpet the good
in that person, even where
none exists from a public poli-
cy perspective. The most
recent example is Jerry
Falwell, one of the godfathers
of the religious right.
Like many Southern White
ministers, Falwell didn't sit on
the sidelines at the outset of the
modern civil rights movement,
he joined the opposition.
"Decades before the forces
that now make up the
Christian right declared their
culture war, Falwell was a
rabid segregationist who railed
against the civil rights move-
ment from the pulpit of the
abandoned backwater bottling
plant he converted into
Thomas Road Baptist
( liurch." Max Blumenthal
writes in an insightful article in
The Nation magazine. "This
opening episode of Falwell's
life, studiously overlooked by
his friends, naively unac-
knowledged by many of his
chroniclers, and puzzlingly
and glaringly omitted in the
obituaries of the Washington
Post and New York Times, is
essential to understanding his
historical significance in gal-
vanizing the Christian right.
Indeed, it was race -not abor-
tion or the attendant suite of
so-called 'values' issues- that
propelled Falwell and his

evangelical allies into political
activism."
Four years after the
Supreme Court's Brown v.
Board of Education outlawing
segregated public schools,
Falwell gave a speech titled,
"Segregation or Integration."
His message was unmis-
takably clear: "If Chief Justice
Warren and his associates had
known God's word and had
desired to do the Lord's will, I
am quite confident that the
1954 decision would never
have been made. The facilities
should be separate. When God
has drawn the line of distinc-
tion, we should not attempt to
cross that line."
The argument that God
ordained segregation and
White supremacy was
advanced by many southern
White ministers. We should
not forget that Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr.'s "Letter from
Birmingham Jail" was written
to his colleagues of the cloth.
The letter, written April 16,
1963, said, in part: I have been
disappointed with the
church... When I was sudden-
ly catapulted into the leader-
ship of the bus protest in
Montgomery, Alabama a few
years ago, I felt we would be
supported by the white church.
I felt the white ministers,
priests, and rabbis of the South
would be among our strongest
allies.
"Instead, some have been
outright opponents, refusing to
understand the freedom move-

ment and misrepresenting its
leaders; all too many others
have been more cautious than
courageous and have remained
silent behind the anesthetizing
security of stained-glass win-
dows."
Jerry Falwell was not silent
behind his stained-glass win-
dows. He said, "The true
Negro does not want integra-
tion...he realizes his potential
is far better among his own
race."
As usual, Falwell was
wrong. Autherine Lucy, a "true
Negro" applied to and was
accepted as a student at the
University of Alabama. Once
the university discovered she
was an African-American,
however, officials said state
law prevented her from
enrolling. With the legendary
Thurgood Marshall as her
attorney, she sued and gained
admission. When she arrived
in February 1956, a-mob threw
eggs at her and issued death
threats. The university
expelled her, purportedly for
her own safety.
The following year, nine
Black students attempted to
desegregate the all-White
Central High School.
Segregationist Gov. Orval
Faubus deployed the Arkansas
National Guard to prevent the
Little Rock Nine from attend-
ing the school. A federal judge
overruled Faubus and ordered
the students admitted. When
the Black students reported to
class, a mob formed and presi-
dent Dwight Eisenhower dis-
patched the Army's elite 101st
Airborne Division to Little
Rock. The nine students were
allowed to attend classes,
though they were subject to

abuse trom wnte students.
Does that should like the
"true Negro" did not want
integration?
But Falwell didn't stop
there.
Claiming that integration
"will destroy our race eventu-
ally," Falwell said, "A pastor
friend of mine tells me that a
couple of..opposite race live
next door to his church as man
and wife."
Not as an unmarried cou-
ple, not as gays or lesbians, but
"man and wife." That was too
much for Falwell to stomach.
As late as 1964, Falwell
was attacking the 1964 Civil
Rights Act as "civil wrongs"
legislation. He questioned "the
sincerity and intentions of
some civil rights leaders such
as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
Mr. James Farmer, and others,
who are known to have left-
wing associations." Falwell
charged, "It is very obvious
that the Communists, as they
do in all parts of the world, are
taking advantage of a tense sit-
uation in our land, and are
exploiting every incident to
bring about violence and
bloodshed."
No, it was the Bull
Conners of the world that were
violently beating civil rights
marchers. It's too bad that
Falwell, who later claimed that
he had changed his views, was
on the wrong side of history.

"To every-
ithin there
n is a eason
.. and a lime
to everypurpose under te heav-
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


pier cards., thank-\ou notes.
and auest registers-the. add up
quickly. lan\1 opt for the funcr-
al home nm 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.

Duval County District Administrator Retires
The Hidden Hills Country Club was the setting for the
retirement celebration honoring Mrs. Evelyn Williams
Tukes. Joining in the magnificent festivities was her hus-
band Alien Tukes, Jr. with their children The Alien Tukes',
II and Ms. Alea Tukes. Ms. Alea Tukes coordinated the
festive event.
Mrs. Tukes, a veteran teacher, guidance counselor, a
school and district level in the Duval County Public Schools
stated during the celebration, "My career has been challeng-
ing. I have been blessed beyond measure and this transition
is a new beginning." Smiling, she further stated, "unfortu-
nately, our children do not come with a Trouble Shooting
Manual. Again, children want to feel that we care."
As a teacher at Hyde Grove and Hyde Park Elementary
Schools, Mrs. Tukes' philosophy was each child can and
will learn when he or she child feels the teacher cares. If
students failed, the teacher 'failed' also. She believed and
still does that learning is a continuous process that should be
nurtured.
After the Bachelor's Degree, Mrs. Tukes continued her
education and graduated from Florida State University with
a Master of Science Degree in Guidance Counseling and
Human Services. She was a counselor at Paxon Senior
High, Fletcher Middle and Ribault Senior High Schools. As
a counselor she touched the lives of a multitude of students
and was able to make a difference in the decision-making
and life choices of these students. Completing the.course
work for a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership, Mrs.
Tukes became certified in Administration and Supervision.
A member of Bethel Baptist Institutional Church, Mrs.
Tukes serves on the Executive Board of the NAACP and
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. She is also the chairperson of
the Debutante Committee of her sorority and serves on its
Scholarship Committee.
Many of Mrs. Tukes' friends and co-workers joined the
family at the Hidden Hills Country Club Celebration and
family members traveled from far and near to join in the cel-
ebration
Congratulations4o Mrs. Tukes. I am sure after a 'little
rest' she will continue her dedication to children somewhere
else. It will be a new beginning for her!

First Annual Christella Witsell Bryant Scholarship
Presented
At a recent Edward Waters College Senor Chapel
Service, Dr. James O. Brookins, M.D., Chief Medical
Officer, Access Health Solutions presented a check in the
amount of $5,000 to Yacoob Thurston as the first recipient
of the Christella Witsell Bryant Access Health Solutions
Health Sciences Scholarship at Edward Waters College.
Yacoob Thurston, a biology major maintains a GPA of 3.7 at
Edward Waters College.
The scholarship honors Mrs. Christella Clay Witsell
Bryant an honor graduate of Edward Waters College where
in 1965 she received her Bachelor of Science Degree.
As a student, Mrs. Bryant was a founding member of
Alpha Epsilon Honor Society and was active in several
other organizations at Edward Waters. She later received a
Master of Education degree from Florida A&M University
where she was inducted into Kappa Delta Pi, an honorary
society in Education.
To further her education, she studied at Jacksonville
University and the University of Florida and participated in
numerous workshops and health seminars throughout the
United States. She received certification in Guidance and
Counseling, Teacher Education, Visiting Teacher/School
Social Work and School Administration.
Mrs. Bryant retired in June 1995 after 30 years of
employment with the Duval County School System. During
her early years of employment she was a secondary school
teacher and district school social worker/ visiting teacher.
She later held important district level administrative posi-
tions with the school system as Supervisor of Title 1 Student
Services for seven years and as the director of School
Health Services for all public schools in Duval County for
fourteen years until her retirement in 1995.
Mrs. Bryant states, "I am proud to be associated with this
scholarship from Access Health Solutions to an aspiring stu-
dent in the area of medical science not only because of my
affiliation with Edward Waters College but because this
scholarship supports one of my greatest concerns for health
care needs in our community and my lifelong work in the
area health services."
This is a wonderful tribute to a very fine retired educator
who shares her zeal for education and health with her hus-
band retired college administrator, Dr. Ezekiel Bryant.

Legislators Fai
Taxes: But For
Increase in Prc

The Florida Legislature
ended its annual session
-without achieving its highly
publicized goal of reducing
property taxes. The
Legislators did, however,
vote to increase property
taxes by $546 million.
If that slipped by without
the average taxpayer notic-
ing, it happened because of
the way Florida allocates
money for schools. The new
state budget, effective in
July, increases spending on
education and orders local
schooll boards to charge
higher property taxes to pay
for it.
Unlike other locally
elected commissioners and
council members who make
tax decisions, school board
members don't determine
how much in property taxes
goes to schools. State legis-
lators make that decision by
setting the "required local
effort," or RLE, which is the
amount of local property
taxes school boards must
impose.
The required local effort
in the new state budget is
.:$9.7 billion, a 7.2 percent
Increase from the current
,ear's budget. That works
;out to $546 million in addi-
4tional property taxes.
In other words, represen-
tatives and senators of both
parties voted for higher
:local property taxes for
schools at the same time
they were declaring proper-
ty taxes in Florida have
reached crisis levels and
must be cut.
In the Capitol, everyone
knew what was going on,
and many legislators were
critical. Senate Minority
Leader Steven Geller, D-
Cooper City, considered it
hypocritical for the
Legislature to posture about
lower property taxes at the
same time it ordered higher
property taxes.
State Sen. Alex
Villalobos, R-Miami,
agreed. "To be up here say-
ing you're for cutting taxes
and just raise them locally
sends a bad message," he
said.
Even critics Geller, and

At every age group,
African Americans have one
of the highest incidences of
diabetes in the United
States, with over 20% of
African Americans between
60 and 74 years old having
the disease.
African American dia-
betes patients using the
medication Avandia for
type 2 diabetes mellitus -
should be aware that a new
analysis this week reported
the widely prescribed dia-
betes drug is linked to a
greater risk of heart attack
and possibly death.


More than 6 million
people worldwide have or
are taking the drug sold by
London -based
GlaxoSmnithKline PLC
since it came on the market
eight years ago. Pooled
results of dozens of studies
revealed a 45 percent high-
er risk of heart attack,
according to the analysis
published online by the
New England Journal of
Medicine.
In a conference call
Monday, Glaxo's chief of
diabetes drug development,
Dr. Lawson McCartney,
said the analysis is not
definitive scientific proof.
The company is not seeing
"anything like" the risks
reported in the medical
journal, he said.
"We remain very confi-
dent in the safety and of
course in the efficacy of
Avandia as an important
diabetic medicine,"


McCartney said.
The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration had no
immediate comment on
Monday's New England
Journal report on Avandia.
The company's stock
was down 7 percent in early
trading after the medical
journal's report appeared.
The report on the risks
of the diabetes drug follow
Glaxo's $2.5 million settle-
ment of a lawsuit filed by
former New York Attorney
General Eliot Spitzer over
the release of data on the
safety and effectiveness of
its drugs.
Spitzer, now New York
governor, accused Glaxo of
fraudulently withholding
some results of studies that
had examined the safety of
prescribing the antidepres-
sant Paxil to children.
GlaxoSmithKline dis-
puted that it attempted to
mislead anyone, and said it


has always been in favor of
widespread disclosure of
clinical trial results.
Avandia is used to treat
Type 2 diabetes, the most
common form of the dis-
ease, which is linked to obe-
sity.
This form of diabetes
occurs when the body does
not make enough insulin or
cannot effectively use what
it manages to produce.
Avandia helps sensitize
the body to insulin and was
considered a breakthrough
medication for blood-sugar
control.
Several experts said
Avandia was another Vioxx-
like example of the U.S.
government failing to detect
a safety problem until after
millions of people had taken
a drug. Vioxx was a block-
buster arthritis medicine
until it was withdrawn in
2004 when heart problems
came to light.

Washington, DC Democrats gave up their demand for troop-withdrawal dead-
lines in an Iraq war spending package Tuesday, abandoning their top goal of bringing
U.S. troops home and handing President Bush a victory in a debate that has roiled
Congress for months.
Bush, who has already vetoed one spending bill with a troop timeline, had threatened
to do the same with the next version if it came with such a condition. Democratic lead-
ers had pressed ahead anyway, under heavy pressure from liberals who believe that the
party won control of Congress in November on the strength of antiwar sentiment. But in
the end, Democrats said they did not have enough votes to override a presidential veto
and could not delay troop funding.

(Editor Note: This is the Second Part of a
multi-part piece by St Petersburg Times colum-
nist and editorial board member Bill Maxwell
who kept a promise to himself to become a pro-
fessor at a small historically black college, to
nurture needy students the way that mentors had
encouraged him as a young man. It was tougher
than he had anticipated.)

By BILL MAXWELL
St. Petersburg Times
After class, just two female students said
they wanted to major in journalism. During
office hours and lunch, I read the essays. I
wondered what I had gotten myself into
when only one paper demonstrated college-
level writing. During my 18 years of previ-
ous college teaching, I had never seen such
poor writing sentence fragments, run-on
sentences, misspellings, wrong words and
illogical word order.
From one paper: "In my high school,
prejudism were bad and people feel like
nothing." From another essay: "Central
High kids put there nose in other people
concern."
I was surprised and disappointed that the
two prospective journalism majors had as
many mistakes in their copy as their class-
mates.
I shared the results with a colleague who
had taught journalism and English at
Stillman for three years. Her response was
discouraging. The abysmal writing was par
for the course, and I had better brace myself
if I intended to keep my sanity.
'I ain't taking this class'
That afternoon, I met my opinion writing
and news writing/reporting classes. I had
five students in one and seven in the other.
Again, I called the roll and took writing
samples. That night at home, I eagerly read
the papers. These budding journalism
majors were the reason I came to Stillman.
But after an hour of reading, I did not see
how any of them would become reporters
and editors without superhuman efforts on
their part and mine. None had any sense of
how a news article comes together. None
knew how to write a compelling lead or how
to use the active voice. Only one, a young
woman in the opinion writing class, had
written for a high school newspaper.
During the next class meetings, I
returned the papers. I did not mark the work,
but I explained the writing was disappoint-
ingly bad and that they would have to work
overtime to learn to write at an acceptable
level. All except the one student who had a
decent essay were outraged.
"I thought this was going to be a real
English class, a student said.
I asked her which high school she had
attended and what she meant. The Selma
High School graduate said her English
teacher had let students spend most of their
time discussing current events and writing
short paragraphs. They wrote one essay all
term. Most of the other students nodded
approvingly. I did not tell the class that
Selma High was considered to be academi-
cally inferior. I did tell them we would fol-
low the syllabus, which required eight
essays and four revisions. I also told them
they would have to complete the grammar
quizzes in the textbook. Everyone, except
the competent writer, groaned.
"I ain't taking this class, one of the stu-
dents who had been in front of King Hall
said. He stood, nodded to his three friends
and walked out of the room. One of them
followed. The other two stared at me and
scowled for the remainder of the period.
The journalism students in the other two
classes accepted my criticism without grum-
bling. In fact, they were pleased with the
prospect of learning how to write "like real
reporters, said Kristin Heard, a freshman
from Montgomery.
'The endangered chair'
Even as 1 attended my first faculty meet-
ing in those first few days, 1 sensed I might
not belong at Stillman. During a break, I
went to the refreshment table for orange
juice. I spoke to two black professors
already there.


"You're Bill Maxwell, right?" one asked.
"Right, "I said.
"The new endowed chair, he said slyly.
"The endangered chair, the other said..
They had a big laugh at my expense.
"It's scholar-in-residence, I said, trying-
to save face.
By the beginning of my second year, I
would find myself alienated from most of
the senior administrators and most of the,
longtime staff members who were responsi-
ble for the day-to-day operations of the insti-
tution.
My alienation, a colleague told me, was,
the result of a disease found at most,
HBCUs: professional jealousy. The college,
president hired me as the "scholar in resi-
dence" on a 10-month contract for a modest'
salary. Some professors resented the:
arrangement because they had been there for
several years and were earning the same or"
less.
In addition to re-establishing the journal-,
ism major, my duties included teaching at
least three courses and advising the student.
newspaper. Unofficially, I was expected to-.
be the guest speaker at select campus func--.
tions and assist with public relations.
SAt least two colleagues publicly com-
plained that the president had created a job
for me and was spending money unneces-
sarily. Several colleagues called me
"McNealey's boy."
Although I considered the whole affair to'
be childish and foolish, I was offended and'
embarrassed.
Refusing to buy the book
After a week, I faced another problem,
that my seasoned colleagues knew well but
failed to warn me about: Most Stillman stu-.
dents refuse to buy their required textbooks. -
I discovered the problem on a Friday when I-
met my English class to discuss the assigned
essay in the text. They were to write an'
essay in response to the reading.
Only one student, the young man who"
wrote well, had read the essay. He had the
text in front of him. The others had not pur-
chased the text. I warned them. that if they-
returned to class without their books, they
would receive an F. But only five of 31 stu-
dents brought their texts to the next class.
Most students had book vouchers as part
of their financial aid, so I told those without
books to walk with me to the bookstore, a
distance of about three football fields. Some
did not follow me, and I tried to remember
who they were. At the store I watched stu-
dents wander around, obviously trying to
avoid buying the book. Only about eight
wound up buying one.
I became angry that I had to deal with
such a self-destructive, juvenile problem. I
saw the refusal to buy the text as a collective
act of defiance. I knew that if I lost this bat-
tie, I would not have any control in this class
and no respect.
The next Monday, I went to class dread-
ing a showdown. While calling the roll, I
asked the students to show me their texts.
Eighteen still did not have them. One said he
had bought the book but left it in his dorm
room "by mistake." I told him to go get it.
He gathered his belongings and left. He
never came to class again.
As promised, I recorded an F for all stu-
dents who did not bring their texts. The last
two young men from in front of King Hall
walked out. I saw myself as having failed
them as a professor, but I was relieved they
were gone.
I also decided to take away students'
excuses for not having access to the texts. I
personally bought two copies of each book
and put them on reserve in the library. From
time to time, I would check t?) see who had
used them. During the entire semester, the
books were used only six times.
Below average by most measures
As I settled into my routine at Stillman
that first fall, I researched the backgrounds
of the students in the English class.. None
had an SAT score above' 1000. The average

combined SAT score for the nation was 1026;
the best possible score was 1600.
None of them had taken advanced placement
courses in school. Of the 33 students, 21 came
from single-parent, low-income families who
lived mostly in Alabama. Some care from the
state's Black Belt, one of the poorest areas in the
nation with some of the worst public schools.
The Black Belt's most famous town is Selma,
home of the Edmund Pettus Bridge and the site
of "Bloody Sunday, where state troopers and
sheriff's deputies beat hundreds of civil rights
marchers on.March 7, 1965.
Of the nearly, 1,000 students on campus, all
but 100 or so received financial aid and loans.
Nearly everyone qualified for federal Pell grants.
I had come to campus having read studies show-
ing that students in this demographic group tend
to perform below average by most academic
measures.
Instead of being disheartened, I remembered
I was much like my students as a. 17-year-old
freshman at Wiley College not knowing what to
expect. Unlike the majority of my students at
Stillman, though, I was an avid reader. Even at
age 13, I knew that I wanted be a writer. I was
determined to learn my first day at Wiley, which
I attended from 1963 to 1965.
I played football my first semester. During
the second semester, I gave up my football
scholarship and got a federal student loan. I
wanted to devote all of my time to my studies
and to reading on my own. And I was not alone.
Many of my schoolmates were similarly inspired
after a few months on our tiny East Texas cam-
pus.
I also had caring professors who introduced
the life of the mind to this kid reared as a migrant
farm worker in labor camps up and down the
eastern United States. My professors were intel-
lectuals, and I wanted to be just like them. Our
professors whether we liked them or hated
them were gods, and we were to learn all we
could from them.
For many of us, Wiley was the only opportu-
nity to earn a four-year degree. Jim Crow barred
us from most colleges and universities in the
South, and our low ACT and SAT scores disqual-
ified us from attending most other campuses
nationwide. Wiley was our lifeline to profession-
al success. And we knew it.
Highly dedicated teachers
While students at Stillman often had a lower
assessment of their professors, there were some
highly dedicated teachers who were not there for
money or fame. Most earned doctorates from
some of the nation's best universities. Of the col-
lege's 88 full-time professors during my time
there, about 70 percent were white. Stillman was
typical of the overwhelming majority of other
HBCUs, where white professors outnumber
black professors, a trend pejoratively referred to
as the "whitening" of the HBCU faculty. A major
reason for this phenomenon is that mainline uni-
versities seeking ethnic diversity on their facul-
ties heavily recruit new black Ph.D.s and spe-
cialists. Another reason is that many black
Ph.D.s see teaching at the HBCU as being
"drudge work" a step down, not a step up.
As far as I could tell, black and white profes-
sors were collegial to one another, and I never
heard of any serious racial conflicts. I did hear
several black students complain about having so
many white professors in a historically black
environment.
One student, Jillian Freeman, a freshman
cheerleader, said: "I came here because I wanted
black professors, but most of my professors are
white. I don't like this."
Before coming to Stillman, I had heard and
read about the so-called inferiority of the profes-
sors at HBCUs. Because Stillman was essential-
ly a teaching institution, the "publish or perish"
rule did not apply. But I was surprised that many
of my colleagues still had impressive scholarly
publications.
I have taught at several other colleges, and I
must say that Stillman's faculty, despite the low
salaries, is highly competent. I regularly sat in on
lectures that were outstanding. Most are dedicat-
ed to the institution and to the students. On any
given night, many professors return to campus to

attend student events. Professors also routinely
spent their own money for field trips and class-
room supplies.
The college had precious few young profes-
sors because they could not support their fami-
lies on the low salaries. Only older people who
had spouses earning decent salaries or who had
other sources of income could teach at Stillman
without struggling financially. I supplemented
my much-envied salary with two small pensions
and money from freelance writing.
An ally at my side
Lucinda Coulter was one of the bright lights
at Stillman and an ally in the mission to groom
young journalists. The professor, who is white,
had a doctorate in American literature and had
written for several magazines. She was a jour-
nalism instructor at the University of Alabama
until she was hired at Stillman for a tenure-track
position in 2000.
It wasn't an easy transition.
"During my first semester, I was over-
whelmed with the workload, she told me dur-
ing one of our gripe sessions. "I taught five
classes and revitalized the student newspaper.
The president had shut it down. It had become
unprofessional. It looked like a yearbook instead
of a newspaper.
"I was discouraged by the end of the year
because of the workload. I returned the next year
only because the faculty members in the English
department were so supportive. We became
close friends. We felt a common bond because
we had a handful of genuinely wonderful kids."
We quickly developed a similar bond as we
each taught about a dozen journalism students
my first semester. Together we urged the stu-
dents to read the Tuscaloosa News, which cost
50 cents, so we could discuss the news and how
the newspaper approached it. But the newspaper
had long ago removed its lone paper rack from
Stillman's campus because of theft and vandal-
i:sm. The nearest racks were several blocks away
at two gas stations. None of our students would
walk that far to buy the newspaper, and only a
few would go online to read it.
"If you want to be a piano player, I often
said in class, "you have to practice playing the
piano. If you want to be a reporter, you have to
read newspapers."
Hardly any students brought the newspaper
to class. So Lucinda and I used our own money
to buy each student a copy of the Tuscaloosa
News every morning. The students repaid us for
about three weeks, but when they stopped we
kept buying it anyway. We knew some of them
were living from hand to mouth. We also bought
enough copies of the New York Times, the
Birmingham News and USA Today for the stu-
dents to share each day.
Newspapers weren't all we bought. Students
at other college newspapers have plenty of cam-
era equipment. We bought dozens of disposable
cameras for students to take photographs to go
along with their stories for the student newspa-
per, the Tiger's Paw. We changed the name to
The Advance, a more mature-sounding name,
during my second semester.
While many college newspapers are printed
daily or weekly, we struggled to publish one edi-
tion each semester. Of the 12 students on the
newspaper staff when I arrived, eight were
English majors and only three had journalism
experience in high school.
Few efforts in academia are tougher than try-
ing to teach English majors how to write like
journalists. English majors tend to believe that
complicated prose and obfuscation are smart.
Clear prose the bread and butter of journalism
- is considered unsophisticated and incapable of
conveying deep thought and important ideas.
I had a hard time getting students to use short
words instead of long ones: "ended" instead of
"terminated;" "use" instead of "utilization;"
"aim" instead of "objective."
Constance Bayne, a freshman from
Tennessee, was an immediate exception. After I
graded three of her stories, she had an epiphany
during an individual grading session.
"I see what you mean, she said, studying
my revision of one of her attempts at pomposity.
"Yours is better. It's real easy to read."
"That's what we always want, I said.
"Simplicity is elegant."
She smiled and read the rest of my revisions.

The messages were lost
I tried my best to cultivate a love of language
and reading. Two sayings were on my office
door. One was a Chinese proverb: "It is only
through daily reading that you refresh your mind
sufficiently to speak wisely." The other came
from me: "Being Smart is Acting Black."
But the. messages were lost on students who
had read so little growing up and had never
acquired basic academic skills. I was not sur-
prised to learn that only two of my students had
read more than three of the books most high
school students have read, books such as Moby
Dick, The Sun Also Rises, The Color Purple and
Invisible Man.
Those of us who were teaching the required
general education courses all of us from the
nation's respected universities, such as the
University of Chicago, Indiana University, the
University of Florida and Princeton had to face
a harsh reality. We primarily were practicing
remediation.
Every day in my classes, I reviewed basic
grammar and showed students how to use the
dictionary effectively, lessons normally taught in
elementary and middle school.
Homework was another major problem.
Writing courses, especially journalism courses,
are labor intensive for students and the profes-
sors. Reporting going into the field, interview-
ing sources, finding official records and verify-
ing information for accuracy is essential. After
most of my students continued to hand in articles
that had only one interview, I began requiring at
least four interviews, with the sources' telephone
numbers, for each story. Most of the students
balked and continued to hand in work with an
insufficient number of interviews.
Meeting deadlines, a must in journalism, was
yet another problem. Few of my students regu-
larly met the Monday deadline. I would deduct a
letter grade for each day the copy was late. Some
students received F's on all of their work. To
avoid flunking them, I let them write in class.
But that required them to show up, and I sel-'
.dom had all students present. Attending class
seemed to be an inconvenience. The college had
an official attendance policy, but few professors
followed it strictly because most of our students
would have flunked out before mid-term. On
most days, I did not call the roll. I simply tried to


remember who was present.
I recall the afternoon I sat alone in my room
waiting for the seven students in the reporting
class to show up. At 20 minutes past the hour, a
white colleague peeked in and saw me in the oth-
erwise empty room.
"You must've had a serious assignment due?"
he said.
We had a big laugh. But it was a painful
laugh.
"It's the Stillman way, he said. "A lot of
these kids won't attend class, and, when they do,
they walk in late. They're on CPT (Colored
People's Time)."
Although I laughed with my colleague, I was
ashamed that a white person so easily joked
about CPT.
"They don't have intellectual curiosity, I
said. "We weren't like that at Wiley or Bethune-
Cookman."
"I know what you mean."
This time, we did not laugh. I gathered my
books and newspapers, turned out the lights and
left. ,
I hardly ever saw anyone take notes during
lectures in the English class. Instead, I had to
regularly chastise students for text messaging
their friends and relatives and for going online to
read messages and send messages. The college
issued free laptops to all students who main-
tained a passing grade-point average.
When I confronted students about text mes-
saging, I was met with hostility. I even had a few
students leave class to make calls or send text
messages. Two male students threatened to phys-
ically attack Lucinda and another female profes-
sor because they demanded that the students put
away their laptops in class.
Each time, I would leave the English class,
exhausted, angry and sad. I would go home on
many evenings during my first month wanting to
cry, and things didn't get much better as the year
progressed.
I had come to Stillman on the mission of my
life: I wanted to be of use, to help "uplift the
race" as my professors had taught me. But as my
first school year ended in the spring, instead of
feeling useful and as if I were helping to uplift
the race, I was feeling helpless and irrelevant.

To Our Youth/Young
Adults
In recent years,
terms such as crisis, at-
risk, marginal and
endangered, are used
with increasing regulari-
ty to describe the plight
and condition of young
Black males. The reason
such stark and ominous
terms are used with ref-
erence to Black males is
quite clear: a broad array
of social and economic
indicators point with
alarming consistency to
the undeniable fact that
large numbers of indi-
viduals who fall within
these two social cate-
gories, Black and male,
are in deep trouble.
Whether the indicators
relate to employment or
education, health or
crime, prisons or early
deaths, Black males are
consistently clustered
toward the end of the
spectrum generally
regarded as least desir-
able, and most vulnera-
ble.
Because of the ongo-
ing crisis and disparities
that far to many of our
youth and young adults
are facing within the

African Americans,
descendents of slaves.
We are asking faith
based communities and
other grassroots organi-
zations, to select jails,
prisons and detention
centers across America,
to visit on Saturday June
16, 2007 during
Juneteenth celebrations
nationwide.
This event is being
held, as to continue cast-
ing light on the fact that
we still have slavery in
America. Over twenty
years after the enactment
of the Anti-Drug Abuse
Act of 1986, there are
more African American
men and women incar-
cerated for drug crimes


The Historical
Perspective:
The Anti-Drug
Abuse Act of 1986 for-
ever changed federal
sentencing laws in this
country In 1988, these
laws were toughening by
adding conspiracy and
gun enhancements to
certain drug offenses.
This dramatic congres-
sional creation of
mandatory minimum
sentences for certain
drug offenses forced
judges to impose harsh
and lengthy prison terms
and prevented them
from considering factors
that would customarily
reduce a defendants sen-
tence; thereby, creating

The Hard Truth:
Since the enactment

of African American
males and females, are
lynched out of our com-
munities because of the
so-called "War on drugs"
leaving grandmothers,
foster care and others

Over 50 years after
the Brown vs. Board of
Education decision in
1954, there is an
unprecedented number
of African Americans in
jails and prisons, with
many of inmates not able
to read or write. In 1954,
there were 98,000
African Americans in
jail or prison. Today,
there are over 900,000
African Americans in
jails or prisons. This is a
shocking statistics
because America's cur-
rent prison population is
estimated at 2 million
people under some form
of judicial control. In
fact, more than 52% of
African American men
incarcerated do not have
a high school education.
African American
males have a 32%
chance of serving time in
prison compared to 17%
for Hispanics and 6% for
white males.
One out of three
African American males
can expect to spend
some time in jail or
prison during his life-
time.

The risk is especially large
for low-income families who

In order to determine
whether higher education is
worth the investment, it is
useful to examine what is
known about the value of
higher education' and the
rates of return on investment
to both the individual and to
society.
The Economic Value of
Higher Education-
There is considerable
support for the notion that
the rate of return on invest-
ment in higher education is

graduates, on average, earn
more than high school gradu-
ates. According to the Census
Bureau, over an adult's work-
ing life, high school gradu-
ates earn an average of $1.2
million; associate's degree
holders earn about $1.6 mil-
lion; and bachelor's degree
holders earn about $2.1 mil-
lion (Day and Newburger,
2002).
These sizeable differ-
ences in lifetime earnings put
the costs of college study in
realistic perspective. Most
students today-- about 80
percent of all students--enroll
either in public 4-year col-
leges or in public 2-year col-
leges. According to the U.S.
Department of Education
report, Think College Early,
a full-time student at a public
4-year college pays an aver-
age of $8,655 for in-state
tuition, room and board (U.S.

the cost of higher education
is significant, given the earn-
ings disparity that exists
between those who earn a
bachelor's degree and those
who do not, the individual
rate of return on investment
in higher education is suffi-
ciently high to warrant the
cost.
Other Benefits of Higher
Education
College graduates also
.enjoy benefits beyond
increased income. A 1998
report published by the
Institute .for Higher
Education Policy reviews the
individual benefits that col-
lege graduates enjoy, includ-
ing higher levels of saving,

sional mobility, improved

less authoritarian; these bene-
fits are also passed along to
succeeding generations
(Rowley and Hurtado, 2002).
Additionally, college
attendance has been shown to-
"decrease prejudice, enhance
knowledge of world affairs
and enhance social status"
while increasing economic
and job security for those who
earn bachelor's degrees (Ibid.)
Research has also consis-
tently shown a positive corre-
lation between completion of
higher education and good
health, not-only for oneself,
but also for one's children. In
fact, "parental schooling lev-
els (after controlling for dif-
ferences in earnings) are pos-
itively correlated with the
health status of their children"
and "increased schooling (and
higher relative income) are
correlated with lower mortali-
ty rates for given age brack-
ets" (Cohn and Geske, 1992).

The Social Value of Higher
Education
A number of studies have
shown a high correlation
between higher education and
cultural and family values,
and economic growth.
According to Elchanan Cohn
and Terry Geske (1992), there
is the tendency for more high-
ly educated women to spend
more time with their children;
these women tend to use this
time to better prepare their
children for the future. Cohn
and Geske (1992) report that
"college graduates appear to
have a more optimistic view
of their past and future per-
sonal progress."
While it is clear that
investment in a college
degree, especially for those
students in the lowest income
brackets, is a financial bur-
den, the long-term benefits to
individuals as well as to soci-
ety at large, appear to far out-
weigh the costs.


economic divide. It is
time for us to stop set-
tling for neatly packaged
social programs and ini-
tiative grants that do not
work. Brothers and sis-
ters in the struggle for
"justice we must demand
that mandatory mini-
mum sentencing laws
for drug offenses be
repealed and that parole
is reinstated in the feder-
al penal system. We
must cut the ropes from
the trees called the feder-
al penitentiary, jails,
prisons and the criminal
justice system.

on, Alex was Alice in Wonderland.
When Bobby showed up, he still had to run the
gauntlet with her three big brothers; Curtis III, Warren,
and David. They don't take lightly anyone taking their
little sister to the prom or anywhere else. Though, he may
be the famous Bobby Valentine, to them he was just
another date and they spared him no slack. They gave in
after a while and agreed to let him take her to the prom.

PROM continued from B4

Alex had mixed emotions because her boyfriend
Reggie wouldn't wait around for Bobby V. to show
up, plus she was excited about being chosen out of
200 other teens to be a celebrity's date.
On the way to the prom, Alex and Bobby V. got
to know each other a little better. They had one thing
in common. This was Bobby Valentino's former
high school. When they arrived at the prom, they
were cheered as if they were on the red carpet.
Bobby V. still remembered some of the teachers that
taught when he was attending.
When they finally got inside, people were still
starring and trying to give Alex's date their tele-
phone number. Courtney and Rebecca (two of the
contestants) greeted them also.
After a while, Bobby V. got a pat on the back. It
was Reggie. Yes, that's right, Alex's boyfriend in tux
and all. Alex was so surprise that all she could do
was cry. She said, "I didn't know what to think." It
turned out that Bobby V. had gotten in touch with
Reggie also and hooked him up with prom tickets, a
ride to the prom and full gear. That was the second
surprise that Alex didn't know about.
Bobby V. left them alone so that they could
enjoy their evening together and so he could per-
form for the crowd. He went and found Courtney
and Rebecca and danced the night away with them.
They really enjoyed themselves.
It was time for Bobby V. to leave. As he whisked
away in the Bently, all he could think about was
what a great time he had, especially after seeing his
former teachers, brought back memories.
Thanks MTV.

AtlEA AA-A -l A,


Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known for its fearless approach
to reality-based subjects!
Dear Deanna!
My boyfriend claims he's a confirmed bachelor and has no
interest in being a one-woman man. I'm doing all that I can to
please him but nothing seems to make him faithful. He hasn't dis-
respected me to my face but I know he does things behind my
back. I feel that he loves me because he always comes home. Is
there anything else I can do to show him the benefit of being with
only me?
Tara Durham, NC
Dear Tara:
You're being used. If you have a man that won't focus on you,
then you need to decide what you want out of this relationship. You have the choice of playing
house and cooking and cleaning until he moves on or you can raise your standards and do bet-
ter. His bachelorhood claim is a sign of immaturity and being selfish. Regardless of coming
home or not, you're not the only woman and if he can't make that his objective then you need
to get rid of him and keep it moving.
***************************
Dear Deanna!
My husband has children with another woman. While dating, they caused problems by telling
lies, and other rude things orchestrated by their mother. I calmly worked through those issues
and got over it. Now I'm pregnant and his teen daughter has shattered my marriage. She told her
father that she heard me tell someone the child wasn't his. My husband is acting distant and says
things will be okay when the baby comes. How should I handle this situation?
Naomi Omaha, NE
Dear Naomi:
If you have a solid marriage and you haven't cheated then you have nothing to worry about.
Its best that you focus on having a healthy and safe pregnancy and deal with this issue after your
delivery. However, after the baby arrives you need to handle your husband and let him know that
you don't appreciate his actions. He needs to stop playing games and he should be ashamed to
believe a child over his wife with such a sensitive issue. His rotten children aren't his fault but
simply products of his ex-wife. Continue to ignore them and focus on your family.
****************************
Dear Deanna!
I'm a corporate executive dating a man that is an auto mechanic. Our careers don't bother our
relationship but he won't support me when I ask him to atterid my company events. I feel as if
he's ashamed to be seen among my peers. There are several others in my corporate circle that
date men beneath them and it's not a problem. Do you have any suggestions on how I can
change his mind?
Anonymous On-line Readers
Dear Anonymous:
Things were going well until you claimed that your man was beneath you and you have friends
with this same silly mindset. With such an insulting thought, you should be surprised this man
is still with you. He knows this is what you think of him and he's not willing to put himself in
an uncomfortable position. However, he cares for you enough to look over it and focus on his
career that he .ejoys. A word to the wise, if it's not broke, don't try to fix it.

THE NORTHEAST FLORIDA COMMUNITY ACTION AGENCY,
INC. (NFCAA) and JEA have partnered to provide energy and water saving
tips to clients seeking assistance with their utility bills, through a program
called "Savings Without Sacrifice," a training program created by JEA in
conjunction with NFCCA to educate customers and help them to reduce
energy and water consumption. Customers are given money savings tips
dealing with energy and water use in the home. "Brian Pippin, JEA
Conservation Coordinator stated that "the combination of utility assistance
and energy and water conservation education allows program participants to
not only catch-up on their current utility bill but learn the low cost/no cost
behavioral changes that will ultimately lower future utility bills as well."
"The program is a quantum leap in the direction to help our vulnerable
population to save on their home energy and water costs," said John
Edwards, Jr., Executive Director, of NFCAA, he continued, "The agency is
delighted to have the entire JEA family help us help our clients and their cus-
tomers to reduce energy and water consumption."
NFCAA is a local private non-profit organization that provides services
to low income households to become self-sufficient. The agency administers
a federally funded program called Low-income Home Energy Assistance
Program (LIHEAP) to clients in seven (7) Northeast Florida Counties to
assistance them with their home energy bills.
The "Savings Without Sacrifice" training program was implemented on
April 16, 2007 and is taught by JEA energy conservation specialists.
NFCAA has made the training mandatory prior to clients receiving assis-
tance with their Home Energy Bills.
The training has received positive reviews and most clients have
expressed great appreciation for the fips that will help them save money.

The History of Memorial Day
,,., ... Memorial Day was originally
.- (:" p' known as Decoration Day
S' because it was a time set aside to
honor the nation's Civil War dead
: '. i i by decorating their graves. It was
i: first widely observed on May 30,
1868, to commemorate the sacri-
fices of Civil War soldiers, by
Proclamation of General John A.
Logan of the Grand Army of the
Republic, an organization of for-
'"mer sailors and soldiers. On May
5, 1868, Logan declared in
General Order No. 11 that: The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of
strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in
defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in
almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land. In this observance no
form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way
arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may per-
mit.
During the first celebration of Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a
speech at Arlington National Cemetery, after which 5,000 participants helped to
decorate the graves of the more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers
buried in the cemetery.
This 1868 celebration was inspired by local observances of the day in several
towns throughout America that had taken place in the three years since the Civil
War. In fact, several Northern and Southern cities claim to be the birthplace of
Memorial Day, including Columbus, Miss.; Macon, Ga.; Richmond, Va.; Boalsburg,
Pa.; and Carbondale, Ill.
In 1966, the federal government, under the direction of President Lyndon
Johnson, declared Waterloo, N.Y., the official birthplace of Memorial Day. They
chose Waterloo-which had first celebrated the day on May 5, 1866-because the
town had made Memorial Day an annual, community-wide event during which busi-


nesses closed and residents decorated the graves of soldiers with flowers and
flags.
By the late 1800s, many communities across the country had begun to cele-
brate Memorial Day and, after World War I, observances also began to honor those
who had died in all of America's wars. In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day a
national holiday to be celebrated the last Monday in May. (Veterans Day, a day set
aside to honor all veterans, living and dead, is celebrated each year on November
11).
Today, Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery with a cere-
mony in which a small American flag is placed on each grave. Also, it is customary
for the president or vice-president to give a speech honoring the contributions of the
dead and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. About 5,000 people
attend the ceremony annually.

Google and Your Computer


Google Adds

Online Security

Against Malware

Google has announced
that many servers can infect
your computer with mali-
cious code.
How big is this prob-
lem? A summary of the
research in Google's new
security blog tells us that
Malware surreptitious
software capable of stealing
sensitive information from
your computer is
increasingly spreading over
the web.
Visiting a compromised
web server with a vulnera-
ble browser or plugins can
result in your system being
infected with a whole vari-
ety of malware without any
interaction on your part.
Software installations that
leverage exploits are termed
"drive-by downloads."
Google says that to pro-


tect Google's users from this
threat they have started an
anti-malware effort about a
year ago. As a result,
Google canwarn you in the
search results if they know a
site to be harmful and even
prevent exploits from load-
ing with Google Desktop
Search.
Unfortunately, the scope
of the problem has recently
been somewhat misreported
to suggest that one in 10
websites are potentially
malicious. To clarify,
Google says they have
investigated about 12 mil-
lion suspicious URLs and
found about 1 million that
engage in drive-by down-
loads. In most cases, the
web sites that infect your
system with malware are
not intentionally doing so
and are often unaware that
their web servers have been
compromised.
Will Google become the
fox guarding the chicken
coop?.

Tallahassee, Fl The family of a teenager who died
after being roughed up by guards at a juvenile boot camp
last year will receive $5 million under a bill signed
Wednesday by Gov. Charlie Crist.
The teenager; Martin L. Anderson, 14, died in January
*2006 shortly after being kneed and struck and having
ammonia tablets held to his nose at the military-style
facility run by the Bay County Sheriff's Office in Panama
City, Fla.
Governor Crist and several lawmakers pushed for the
settlement this spring despite the Legislature's general
distaste for claims measures.
The state has already paid Martin's parents $200,000,
the most allowed by law without legislative approval.
The bill signed by Crist pays the remaining $4.8 million.

Pleasantville, NY -- Reader's Digest has announced
the publication of Alex Haley: The Man Who Traced
America's Roots, a collection of articles written for
Reader's Digest by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and
a companion DVD featuring never-before-seen footage
and audio of Alex Haley. Created in conjunction with the
30th Anniversary of Haley's award-winning Roots, this
special volume includes the original excerpt of the epic
book as it first appeared in Reader's Digest as well as a
never-before published talk in which Haley describes his
despair while trying to complete his monumental task of
recording his family's history..

Galveston, Tx A baby girl was released from a
hospital 11 days after police say she was burned in a
motel microwave oven.
The infant's mother blamed the devil for what hap-
pened, saying Satan compelled her husband to put the
baby in the microwave. The devil "saw my husband as a
threat" because of his efforts to become a preacher, Eva
Marie Mauldin, 20, told Houston television station
KHOU.
"He would never do anything to hurt her," she said.
"Satan was working through his weaknesses."
Mauldin said that her husband had a mental disability
and that her efforts to get him help have failed.

Just over a month ago a group of cyclists began a 2,200

The trip will eventually take them from the shores of

arrived in the United States from Africa; to Ontario,
Canada.

Mark Twain Inside the Freedom

Westmoreland walked riders
into a rebuilt slave pen, a log cabin-like building that housed
slaves for 30 to 60 days before they were sold at markets
like the ones the cyclists visited in Mobile.
The trip's leader, Alvin Justelien, says the ride has been
like a ministering program to him. He says he hopes people
learn about the love it required for those involved in the rail-
road to put their lives on the line to help others.
"A lot of people try to make it a black and white thing,
and it's not; because both blacks and whites suffered if they
were caught," Justelien says. "Whether it was escaping
slaves, whether it was whites trying to help the slaves, or
whether it was black free people helping the slaves escape,:
everybody was in jeopardy."
Most of the riders on the trip said they hoped it would
promote more dialogue between the races. But for the:
African Americans riding along, it has a more visceral-
meaning, says Mario Browne. He choked up talking about
what it was like to dip his bike wheels in the Gulf of
Mexico, where the last known slave ship arrived.
"As I look back and I just, imagine those human beings
stuffed in ships like sardines in the waste and the filth, and
the degradation and the humiliation they went through, there:
is no rational reason that I should be standing here today,":
Browne says. "It is only by God's grace and mercy, so I:
recognize the significance of it being more than just a bike
ride."
The cyclists expect to reach Owen Sound in Canada, the:
final terminal of the Underground Railroad, around the end
of the month.

Barry Bonds and the Record
A few weeks Hank Aaron said he would probably be
out playing golf when Barry Bonds Broke his record. "I
will never reconsider my decision," Aaron told the AP
this past week.
Bud Selig says he might not attend the record break-
ing game and Fay Vincent former Commissioner -
jumps in to say he thinks that would show that Selig
believes Bonds has used performance-enhancing drugs.
Enough of this childish posturing. The game isn't
run by what someone thinks. If Barry Bonds puts 756
over the fence, that's it. It goes in the books no matter
who is there to watch!
If baseball has a beef with Bonds and it's as obvi-
ous that Selig does lets get it on the table, or in the
courts or wherever and get it settled. But until that hap-
pens, everybody just shut-up, try to act like grown-ups
and lets play ball.
Erik Lis
Lis, a former University of Evansville first baseman
was a ninth round draft pick in the 2005 June draft, Lis,
who now plays for the Florida State League Fort Myers
Miracle, got a surprise that most Class A ballplayers
would like to have. His Dad was in the stadium for his
game last Friday night. The airplane tickets were an
early Father's Day gift from his Mom.
Eriks Father's Day gift for his dad came in the top
of the first when Erik pulled a 2-2 pitch and sent it over
the right field fence for a solo home run.
The stadium was sold out and the opposing pitcher
was no less than Roger Clemens, 7-time Cy Young win-
ner tuning up for his comeback with the Yankees.
Joe Paterno
Joe Pa, 80 years young and going strong has an
interesting and novel way of addressing the recent
arrest of six his players in connection with a fight at an
off-campus apartment, Joe Paterno will be disciplining
his entire Penn State team for the entire season.
According to Joe Pa, the entire football team will clean
Beaver Stadium after each home football game this fall.
It'll gather garbage, sweep stairs and maybe even hose
parts down. The key word there is entire football team.
Not just the 6 players in\ol ed in the brawl but every-
one on the team.
In Paterno's eyes, Its "Not just the kids that were
involved. 'Cause we're all in it together. This is a team
embarrassment. I wouldn't call it anything much other
than that."
At many of the football, powerhouses across the
country, punishment has become a forgotten concept.
The star players are held to a lower standard of behav-
ior than the ones warming the benches. The coaches
would rather not take on the responsibility for the off-
field activities of their players until they have no
choice.
Joe Pa is taking the high-road. He has drawn a
straight line in the sand, On this side is right and on that
side is wrong. He is determined to run a clean program.
For the players and the school. The first step this fall
iwill be cleaning the stadium.

Gators Host NCAA EAST

Track/Field Championship


This weekend the Gators
host the NCAA East
Regional Track and Field
Championships at Percy"
Beard Track in Gainesville.
It will be the second time
since the adoption of the
regional format in 2003, that
the University of Florida
will host the
Championships.
"We probably have the'
best facility on the East
Coast to host this meet,"
Florida women's coach Tom
Jones said. "We'll have a
new Mondo surface that will
make the track even faster
and we had great weather
last time we hosted in 2004.
It's definitely an advantage
to have a big meet of that
caliber at home."
Both the men's and
woman's team,won the East
Region title in 2003 and
2004, while the men fin-
ished second in 2005 with
the women taking fourth last
season.
Like the rist of the 300-


plus universities and col-
leges that comprise the East
Region, Florida will be
looking for its athletes to
secure automatic entries in
the NCAA Championships
to be held in Sacramento,
California in two weeks.
Eligibility in the NCAA
Championship goes to ath-
letes finishing in the top five
for individual events or top
three teams from relay
events. The Gators will also
attempt to claim the regional
crown for the third time in
the five-year history of the
event. The NCAA adopted
the regional format begin-
ning in 2003 and the Gators
claimed the meet title that
year and in 2004.
The Gators, finished
sixth in the SEC
Championships last week

will be gunning for a shot in

Did You Hear About?


(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) Find your
comfort zone as
the week
begins. Use any
time off to burn
off some excess energy, do
some thinking and become
more centered. Don't let a
mishap throw you. Around
Thursday and Friday, your
personal fire's burning
bright, and you're ready to
do what needs to be done -
- not to mention light up
the night. Work should go
great, and when it comes to
play, think different, bigger
and better. When the week-
end comes, it may be time
to take a look at your moti-
vations. Is what you're up
to in alignment with what's
in your heart?
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) You want a bal-
Sance of 'seeing
and being seen'
and quiet time
Sas the week
begins -- and don't neglect
any extra-close connec-
tions, which can definitely
deepen now. Let your emo-
tions flow. Around
Thursday and Friday, both
money and philosophy are
in the stars. If you think
they're unrelated, it's time
to reexamine your career
path as it relates to your
ideals, plus what role
finances play in your rela-
tionships. If you've got
time for it, this weekend is
perfect for a day trip -- and
it needn't be an extravagant
one. Pack a picnic!
(Gemini May 21st thru
June 21st) Monday may
.. be a fun day, but
you find your-
self becoming
absorbed in
more in-depth matters at
the beginning of the week,
too. Conduct some investi-
gations. Around Thursday
and Friday, you're extra
sharp in terms of intellect,
but you'll want to exercise
some emotional intelli-
gence, too. Be conscious
about the tone of your
interactions, both verbal
and nonverbal. And if
something's confusing this
weekend, don't just sit
there all flummoxed -- get
back into your investigato-
ry mode. You'll bring inter-
esting aspects to light.
(Cancer June 22nd thru
July 22nd) Enjoy an
active Monday.
After that day,
your energy
changes to
focus on more emotional
matters. If making a
choice seems difficult dur-
ing the beginning of the
week, it may just be that
it's tough to be detached
now. Don't pressure your-
self. Around Thursday and
Friday, find something to
do at your own pace;
you'll look good doing it.
(If it benefits someone
else, too, you'll look even
better.) Whatever you're
up to this weekend,, be
clear in your communica-
tion and don't avoid any
little issues that pop up.


You can swing things in a
very positive direction
now .-- take the initiative!


(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) Monday's per-
fect for getting
your fun on --
friends and the
out-of-doors go
great together now. By the
evening, though, and
through Tuesday and
Wednesday, more serious
matters require your con-
centration. Apply your
intellect, and also let your
instincts have their (very
important!) say. If you're in
the market for romance (or
looking to spice up the one
you already have),
Thursday and Friday are
prime time -- you're end-
lessly alluring, fun and
funny to boot. This week-
end, lend a friend a listen-
ing ear or a helping hand --
what you want can wait (at
least a little while!).
(Virgo August 23rd thru
September 22nd) Recreat-
.....- ion may be op
the schedule for
Monday, but
your energy all
through the beginning of
the week is decidedly intel-
lectual. Your inquiring
mind wants to know, and
the more you know, the
more informed and finely
tuned your instincts
become. To get the most out
of life around Thursday and
Friday, you're going to need
to let it get a little messy.
Quell that instinct to organ-
ize and control, just for
now. By the time the week-
end comes, things may be
going in a very good (and
even very romantic!) direc-
tion. Let your imagination
take the lead.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd) Get
.... back to nature
on Monday.
Even if it's just
going out to a
park, it'll feed your heart
and soul. Tuesday and
Wednesday are much more
work-oriented, so dive in
and get major stuff done.
You're especially eagle-
eyed with numbers and
money matters now. Then,
on Thursday and Friday, it's
all about words -- and com-
munication of the more
subtle, unspoken variety.
People are likely to respond
to you resoundingly posi-
tively now, especially in the
love department. The week-
end has you concerned with
the past. Make sure you
process, rather than
dwelling.
(Scorpio October 23rd
thru November 21st) If
Monday morn-
ing finds you a
bit befuddled,
just give it a little
time. Fresh energy's en
route -- energy of the sort
that brings all your finest
qualities to the forefront.
You're sharp as a tack,
dynamic and generally fab-
ulous through Wednesday.
Just don't get carried away
around Thursday and
Friday, when you really
ought to analyze what's hap-
pening around you (not to
mention your place in it all)
realistically. The weekend
finds you nicely in balance,


not to mention playing nice-
ly with others. Enjoy time
spent with friends, family or
a certain special someone.


(Sagittarius November
22nd thru December 21st)
IMonday's energy
is sunny and
bright, so seize
the day and have
your way with it! By
evening time and for the
next couple of days, your
outlook may be more
changeable. Perhaps you're
acknowledging a problem
and processing it; maybe
you're in a dreamy state of
mind. By Thursday and
Friday, though, your per-
sonal forecast is super.
Regardless of the actual
weather, there's much to
delight and surprise you in
your world. You're radiant
now, too; people want to
bask in your glow! Seek out
music, art and culture this
weekend -- the inspiration
really takes hold.
(Capricorn December
22nd thru January 19th)
--.---" Force yourself
to focus on any-
thing and every-
thing other than
work on Monday -- get out-
side, connect with friends,
enjoy life! There's plenty of
time to catch up on Tuesday
and Wednesday, when the
stars say you'll be extra
organized and decisive --
perfect. Around Thursday
and Friday, a favorite proj-
ect or plan may go awry,
but don't despair..Rethink
and regroup, and get a con-
sultation from a friend, a
mentor or somebody in the
know. When the weekend
comes, the wheels are
greased for whatever it is
you're looking to do. Enjoy
some serious kismet!
(Aquarius-January 20th
thru February 18th) Do
something you
normally would-
n't even consider
on Monday. The
venture out of your comfort
zone might just feel very
freeing. Tuesday and
Wednesday probably find
you focused on what's hap-
pening at work -- or what
should be happening in
your career. It could be time
to get proactive about your
path. Find a community
you share values with
around Thursday and
Friday. A political event,
the arts, whatever unites
people on common ground
finds you at home. And
when the weekend comes,
have a plan -- or just resign
yourself to something, even
if it's getting very little
done!
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th) Work's
not where it's at
for you as the
week begins --
you're dreamy,
you're slow to judge, you're
much more about the
process than any goal. It's
terrific stuff for any cre-
ative pursuits, and for rela-
tionships ... and for experi-
encing the world in all of its
glory. Save more action-
oriented endeavors for
Thursday and Friday, when
you're sharper -- a problem-
solver and a negotiator.
This weekend, practice
moderation, as more than a


little of anything goes a
long way -- plus you'll love
the variety involved in mix-
ing it up a bit!

WELL, HE DID HAVE
THE RIGHT ATTIRE! An
officer was dispatched to the i' t,
700 block of Palmetto St. in .l
reference to a black male
wearing a white shirt and dark
pants charging people to park
on the private property of
Florida Rock without permis- ': .
sion. The Veterans Memorial
Arena was having a concert.
The' officer arrived at the
scene and talked to the com-
plainant, Mr. D, who advised
him that this suspect was try-
ing to charge people.to park '
on their property and has done -
this many times before. He pointed to this suspect who was now half a block to
the south and requested he be issued a trespass warning for this property. He also
advised that this suspect is charging people to park on a city street where it is
clearly posted "No Parking, Any Time." Another officer arrived at the intersec-
tion of E. Beaver St. & Palmetto St., and observed this suspect wearing an orange,
traffic vest and waving an orange flag trying to flag people to park on this piece
of E. Beaver St. The officer stopped this suspect and asked him what he was
doing and this suspect admitted that he was parking people coming to the con-
cert along this city street and charging them
$10. A group of people that had parked here
walked by and the officer asked them if this
suspect had charged them to park here. They
advised that he had charged them $10 to park
on this section of E. Beaver St., that is clearly
posted with seven different signs that read
"NO PARKING ANY TIME" and even told
them that he would make sure their cars did-
n't get broken into. The officer detained this .,
suspect. The suspect was arrested and trans-
ported to the jail. The orange flag and orange
traffic vest this suspect was using and wearing
were placed in the property room.

HE REALLY, REALLY WANTED TO GET HIS PARTY ON An officer
was flagged down while assisting another officer with a traffic stop. the victim,
Mr. C, who is employed as a security guard at a local nightclub advised him that
a black male had pulled a gun out and pointed it at his face. Mr. C stated that he
had told the male that he was not permitted to enter the nightclub. The victim
stated that the gun made contact with his left cheek. The officer contacted HQ
and requested additional units before following Mr. C around the corer to the
nightclub. Mr. C pointed towards listed
suspect Mr. J and stated that he had a
,.. "' gun. Upon seeing the officer, Mr. J, the
'" .suspect, attempted to flee into a beauty
salon, located in the 1300 block of
S' University Blvd. The officer immedi-
''atel ordered him to stop and attempt-
S" ed to apprehend the suspect. At this
"' point, co-defendant Ms. R slammed
the front door of the business closed.
Sthe officer stepped to push the door
open, but Ms. R and Mr. J, the suspect,
\\ere pushing it closed. Without warn-
j ing, lNs. J, who is the sister of the list-
ed suspect, shoved the officer with both hands from behind. As a result of her
actions, he fell away from the dbor. The co-defendant Ms. R then successfully
secured the dead bolt lock. Numerous other officers responded and arrived on
scene. The co-defendant Ms. J was taken into custody without further incident.
After allowing the suspect sufficient time to flee from the rear of the business,
co-defendant Ms. R eventually opened the front door of the business. She was
taken into custody at this time. The listed suspect was located in an alley behind
the listed location and taken into custody without further incident. The listed vic-
tim, Mr. C, positively identified the suspect as the individual that had pointed the
gun in his face. The weapon was not recovered. The suspect was arrested and
transported to the PTDF.

FEELING IT IN A RENTAL CAR An officer was dispatched to the 5900
block of Fort Caroline Rd. in reference to a loud disturbance near an apartment
building. Upon arrival, the officer observed the suspect sitting alone in a parked
car. There was a strong odor of burning marijuana coming from the vehicle. The
officer observed an opened bottle of alco-
hol on the floor board. When he made con-
tact with the suspect, the officer asked him
for his license. He stated that he did not
have a license or any other form of picture
ID on him. The suspect was asked to step ,
out of the car. When the car was searched,
a small amount of crack cocaine and mari-


juana was found. The suspect was arrested
and transported to the PTDF. All drugs and
open container of alcohol were placed in
the property room. Budget Rental Car was
contacted and the vehicle was towed.

Victoria Rowell Celebrates

Foster Care With New

Book!

Actress Victoria
Rowell is a highly suc-
cessful dancer, model
and actress in TV and
film, but getting there
was no cake walk. She
is best known for her
co-starring role on'
"Diagnosis Murder,"
for eight seasons while
simultaneously por-
traying her role as
Drucilla Winters on the
daytime soap "The
Young and The
Restless." Rowell has
been nominated for an
Emmy Award and
holds 11 NAACP
Image Awards among
others. Rowell has
authored a new book
entitled The Wormen
Who Raised Me
(Harper-Collins. The
book is a riveting per-
sonal memoir that
salutes the women who
adorned the hat of fos-
ter mom on her behalf.
Rowell was born on
May 10, 1950 as a
ward of the State of
Maine from a white
mother and unknown
black father. Only one
can imagine the fate of
a racially mixed child
in the lily-white State
of Maine during the
1950s.
Rowell remained in
foster care for eighteen
years and during that
time she was seriously
blessed to be placed in
private family homes
rather than group


homes, with a succes-
sion of dedicated, caring
foster moms. Whereas
being in the child serv-
ices system can be a
quagmire to the average
child, Rowell steadfast-
ly navigated her way
through it centered and
on course. At the tender
age of eight, Rowell
received the Ford
Foundation Scholarship
to the Cambridge
School of Ballet. At the
conclusion of an eight
year training period,
Rowell's advancement
as a disciplined dancer
won her scholarships to
both the School of
American Ballet and the
American Ballet Theater
by her sixteenth birth-
day. A professional clas-
sical dance career
ensued which eventual-
ly lead into professional
modeling and then act-
ing and the rest as they
say is history.
When asked where
her focus came from to
strive for the arts at such
a young age (i.e., eight
years old)? Rowell
enthusiastically replied,
"Well, I was blessed
with an extraordinary
foster parent/mentor
Ms. Agetha Wooten
Armstead (a black
woman). I was living on
her sixty-acre farm in
Maine. She had the
vision and also faith in
me, to allow me to leave
my foster home in
Maine to audition for
this scholarship in
Ca m b r i d ge .
Massachusetts. It was a
reflection of her "intrep-


Victoria Rowell


id spirit! This was a sen-
ior citizen who was rear-
ing me, who was born in
1902. Her courage was
infectious! So that's
where I got my focus,


that's where I still draw
my focus and my
courage from, the
memory of Agetha
Wooten Armstead.

A new re-mix, five song EP will
be released on the late Jazz Trumpet
great Miles Davis. It will feature
guest appearances by Santana, Nas
and Olu Dara (Nas' father). Davis'
nephew, Vince Wilburn, jr., is the
co-executive producer with Steve
Berkowitz who is head of A&R at
Sony/Legacy. Actor Don Cheadle
is set to portray Davis in a soon-to-
be-filmed biopic. Davis was the first
jazz artist to be inducted into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and
the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame.
TV
The BET AWARDS are on the
way with a live broadcast Tuesday,
June 26 at 8 P.M. ET/ 7 P.M. CT.
Check your local listings. Beyonce
leads the pack with six nominations.
Jay-Z, Jennifer Hudson, Ciara,
Akon and Gnarls Barkley are next
with three nominations each. Award
Winning Comedienne, Actress and
Author Mo 'Nique will return as the
show's host: Legendary
Songstress/Actress Diana Ross will
receive the BET Lifetime
Achievement Award and critically
acclaimed Actor and Activist Don
Cheadle will take home the BET
Humanitarian Award for his work
with the genocide in Darfur. As you
all know by now, the BET
AWARDS are the bomb as far as
this columnist goes. It is hands
down the best black awards show in
the business!
Film
Actors Henry Simmons and
Romeo (formerly known as Lil
Romeo) are set to film Sweetwater,
in San Francisco and New York this
summer. This project tells the story
of Nat "Sweetwater" Clifton, the
first black basketball player to be
contracted by an NBA team. He
pretty much went through the same
racial crap that Jackie Robinson
had to endure and is credited for
breaking the color barrier in pro bas-
ketball like Robinson did in base-
ball. He re-invented how the game
was played like all brothers do via
his athleticism and first-of-a-kind
(to White folks), "street ball skills".
Romeo plays the young Sweetwater
and Simmons plays the adult ver-

stars Glen Hansard and Marketa
Irglova. This film is technically a
musical but the viewer will not
see it as such because the story
and the music are blended togeth-
er very naturally. In other words
there is not your usual dramatic
dialogue, and then somebody
breaks out into a song and a cho-
rus load of dancer's pop out from
nowhere.
This is a story about a strug-
gling Irish pop musician referred
to as the guy (Hansard) who
meets a young single mom
referred to as the girl (Irglova)
who is adjusting to her move to
Ireland from The Czech
Republic. They met while he was
singing and playing his guitar for
money donations on a street cor-
ner. The girl stops to listen and is
impressed. The guy Scruggs her
off at first but she is persistent
about them getting together to
exchange musical ideas. She is a
singer songwriter herself. The
guy gives in and they begin to
rehearse together which leads to
making a demo. In the process,
they fall in love.
If you are a European pop
music fan, you will love the
music in this film which is avail-
able on the soundtrack CD.
Hansard and Irglova create a mel-
low and beautiful love filled
soundtrack having written,
played and recorded all of the
film's songs in real life together.
The movie was filmed on the
streets of Dublin, Ireland which
adds to its authenticity. This film
may not be a major box office
smash but it will change how the
new modem day musical is shot.
This flick is for couples who want
to snuggle up and be in love.

Victoria cont'd from D-1
Even though Rowell
spent the largest portion
of her foster years with
Ms. Armstead, she also
makes special mention
of Esther Brooks, a
tParis-trained prima bal-
lerina who was Rowell's
first mentor at the
Cambridge School of
Ballet; Rosa Turner, her
Boston inter-city foster
mom who taught her to
be independent and
Sylvia Silverman a
school teacher with a
well kept home in a
middle-class suburban


neighborhood readied
Rowell for her transition
out of foster care into
the harsh, real world of
New York, the profes-
sional world of ballet ,
showbiz and adulthood.
Hopefully, this book
will place greater atten-
tion on the seriousness
of the many problems
that plague the foster
care system as well as
shedding light on the
things that make it nec-
essary plus the positives
and the success stories
that evolve from it.
Rowell is a passionate


activist for foster care
children like herself.
She founded The
Rowell Foster
Children's Positive
Plan, which enriches
foster children through
artistic and athletic
expression. She is the
national spokesperson
for the Casey
Foundation. Her social
charity work is as
demanding as her enter-
tainment career but she
can more than handle it!
Both endeavors are a
labor of love for such a
lovely lady!
