Rachel Smith, slipped and
fell but quickly got up and
continued her stroll down
the stage. The audience
had supported her until she
beat out Miss Mexico for
the top 5 slots and perhaps
that is what made her nerv-

her, expressing, "She han-

Six Grader at Needwood Middle Charged
A Needwood Middle School six-grader has been charged with making terrorist threats
against a teacher who, according to her parents, the A-B student was upset with her moth-
er and therefore not participating in class. When the teacher asked her what was wrong,
she did not answer so the teacher said to her, "Come sit next to daddy." The girl yelled,
"You're not my daddy. My daddy is a big black man with a bald head." The teacher called
the mother to make'a report, but according to the mother, he left out the part about "sit next
to daddy." A few days later their daughter was charged,with making a threat against the
teacher because two students said they heard her say she wants "to kill Mr. Raczynski:"
With that, the couple's A-B student was found guilty and still no one can explain what the
teacher meant about "sit next to daddy."
The couple sought an explanation, but to no avail, from the teacher, principal, Assistant
superintendent Al Davis and the now retired Dr. Stanford of Glynn County School Board
who agreed that it was not normal for a teacher to make such a remark.The family wants
to know why their daughter has been charged and nothing happened to the teacher.
Woman Dies When Light Company Turn Off Her Lights
A 44-year-old school teacher with four children between the ages of 5 and 20, had
not worked since February because she was ill. In fact, she required an electric oxy-
gen pump in order to breath. She owed the light company in Wellington, New
Zealand, $122 for an unpaid bill. When the state-owned company arrived to turn off
the electricity, the technician was told that the lady was sick and needed the oxygen.
The man turned off the electricity and within two hours after the pump lost its power,
the lady died. After learning of her death, the company restored power to the house
the next day and issued a condolence to the family.

Teen Found In Dumpster
Was A Multiple Runaway
Sources in the Jacksonville neighbor-
hood where 15-year-old Shambrier White
lived said she was known to get into cars
"for a ride." Her mother, Kathy Boyd said
because she had runaway before, she did not
report her missing until ten days after her
disappearance because she normally would
return. On May 16, a female body was
found by a maintenance worker in a dump-
ster under several garbage bags, at the Pines
apartment complex in'St. Marys, Georgia
but, no one at the complex recognized the
body as a person from the area.
Even though Shambrier, a student at
Northwestern Middle School, was only 15-
years-old, she had an arrest record so police
was able to identify her by her fingerprints
and her mother said she was not aware of
Shambrier knowing anyone in St. Mary's.
St. Mary's police officers said they do have
some leads but are not at a point that they
can name a suspect or a persons) of interest.
The young girl had been beaten and
dumped, according to reports.

Health coverage in
America shouldn't be like
the stock market that dispas-
sionately picks winners and
losers. But insufficient fund-
ing of government health
insurance programs com-
bined with barriers limiting
access to coverage has creat-
ed a system where some
children get health care and
others don't. The result is
that nine million uninsured
children in America have
become losers and are writ-
ten off like a declining
stock. This year, Congress
must pass--and the President
must sign--a bill that will
provide easy access to com-
prehensive health coverage
for all children.
It comes down to a life
and death choice for chil-
dren like Camilla Tecsy, 12,
who requires daily therapeu-
tic treatments and medica-
tion for Cystic Fibrosis, a
disease that attacks her
lungs and digestive system.
Camilla is a bright, articu-
late child. She describes her-
self as a typical girl from
New York City who likes to
watch TV, talk on the phone
and hang out with her
friends. When she gets sick,
however, there's nothing
typical about what she has to
endure. Fluid clogs her
lungs and she struggles to
breathe, suffering violent
coughing spells. These bouts
of sickness are accompanied
by diarrhea and dramatic
weight loss. Her lungs are
left scarred putting her at
greater risk of future attacks.
Camilla is not the only
member of the Tecsy family
with health problems. Her
mother, Luminita, who is an
office manager, has dia-
betes. Her twice-daily
insulin shots are covered by
her employer's health plan,
but Camilla's father, Sandor,
a colon cancer survivor,
works as a taxi driver and
has no health insurance.
Luminita and Sandor fled
Romania when it was ruled
by a communist dictator and
came to America 30 years
ago for a better life. Camilla
and her older sister,
Christina, were born in the
United States. The family
traveled to Hungary in 1997
after the fall of communism,
and each of them was
approved for full health
insurance: on the day they
arrived. The promise of free
health care induced the
Tecsys to move to the
Eastern European country
for a four-year stay.
Although Camilla was a
U.S. citizen, she had the
benefit of free doctor's visits
and medication. In addition,
Sandor had surgery .for his
colon cancer. When they
Choosing Which Children Live, Die or
Marian Wright Edelman
President, Children's Defense Fund
returned to America, secur-
ing health care was a decid-
edly different matter.
Luminita has had to seek
help from the Children's Aid
Society to enroll her chil-
dren in Medicaid through
New York's Community
Premier Plus program. But
the family must pay the full
cost of the program at $150
per child each month or a
total of $300 a month,
because Luminita and
Sander's combined incomes
are between 250 and 300
percent above the poverty
level (about $56,000 a year).
While the Tecsys have little
choice but to pay this costly
premium, they cannot afford
to cover the whole family.
Thus, they had to make the
agonizing choice of not buy-
ing health coverage for the
father who requires monitor-
ing and follow-up care.
In March 2007,
Community Premier Plus
officials denied a request for
Camilla to receive
Pulmozyme, /an expensive
therapeutic treatment taken
with an inhaler to clear her
lungs and enable her to
breathe normally. For 12
days she suffered while her
mother fought to secure this
vital medication. Luminita
had to make numerous calls
to the state insurance office
to get through to someone
who would approve the
child's access to
Pulmozyme, and often got a
recording with instructions
to leave a message. "I didn't
know where to go or what to

It is ludicrous that a fam-
ily should have to leave the
United States, the richest
country on earth, to move
their American-born daugh-
ters to an Eastern European
country to secure uninter-
rupted health care. As long
as there are barriers block-
ing eligible children from
receiving health coverage
for care, Congress and the
White House, in effect, are
saying to millions of unin-
sured children, "We choose
not to cover your health
care." Writing these children
off can never be acceptable.
Legislation must be enacted
this year to guarantee com-
prehensive health services
for all children and pregnant
women in America. CDF
supports a bill introduced by
Congressman Bobby Scott
(D-VA), the All Healthy
Children Act (H.R. 1688), to
achieve this goal. We must
not delay. If we can throw
half a trillion dollars at a war
of choice in Iraq, we certain-
ly have the resources to pay
for the care of all our chil-
dren. For more information,

Early Primary on Tap
FAMU Coach Arrested
Earlier Primary Will Boost
Florida's Clout In Elections
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, it is getting
close to election day! This holiday season,
Republican and Democratic presidential
candidates will likely be on Florida TV and
radio airwaves just as much as the usual hol-
iday music and shopping commercials.
Gov. Charlie Crist signed a bill last
Monday that moves the state's presidential
primary up to Jan. 29, a move that could dra-
matically alter the candidates' strategies as
they each vie for votes, in a state that is seen
as a microcosm of the nation.
"I know how important your state is,"
Republican candidate Rudy Giuliani told an
Orlando crowd days before Crist's signature.
"You're going to have lots of presidential
candidates here. It's going to do wonders for
your economy because we're going to spend
millions and millions of dollars on televi-
The state's primary, which had been
scheduled for March, is now behind only the
Iowa and Nevada caucuses and the New
Hampshire primary and on the same day as
South Carolina's Democratic primary.
Florida has by far the largest population
of any of the early voting states set for
January and is the most expensive in which
to campaign, giving well-funded candidates
an even greater advantage and possibly
drawing attention away from the smaller
states. And of course providing additional
media revenue to the state
"This is going to require the serious can-
didates to spend very, very large amounts of
'money and time in Florida," said Merle
Black, a politics professor at Emory
University\ in Atlanta. "If you can't compete-
in Florida. that's going to be a sign that
you're not a serious contender."
Florida's early election could also have
implications in the Feb. 5 primaries sched-
uled in a dozen other states, including New
York and California.
"The candidates who finish first in
Florida would presumably be the strongest
candidates the party could put up in the
November election," Black said. "And in
building momentum for a campaign, the
candidatesthat do well in Florida would get
intense media coverage leading:into the next
week's events in early February."
Under both Republican and Democratic
party rules, states are penalized for moving
their primaries earlier than Feb. 5.
The Democratic National Committee
said Florida would lose 50 percent of its del-
egates and all its superdelegates -- typically
members of Congress. Also, any Democrat
candidate who campaigns in Florida for a
primary earlier than Feb. 5 will be ineligible
for receiving any of the state's delegates.
DNC spokeswoman Stacie Paxton said
the committee was working out a separate
plan with the state party, such as a caucus, to
The Republican National Committee has
warned it will strip 50 percent of Florida's
delegates if the state's primary is moved.
"The rules are inflexible and it doesn't
matter who is running the RNC, those rules
will be enforced," RNC chairman and
Florida Sen. Mel Martinez said Friday.
But it's not stopping candidates from
Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham
Clinton was already campaigning in Florida
on Monday. Illinois Sen. Barack Obama will
also continue to campaign in the state, said
spokeswoman Jen Psaki. And Arizona
Republican Sen. John McCain also plans to
be a frequent visitor.
S"We're going to have a very aggressive
campaign in the state. You'll see more of
Sen. McCaifi," said spokesman Terry
Party leaders say the rules are in place, in
part, to keep states from leapfrogging over
each other to gain a greater say in selecting
South Carolina Republicans, for
instance, are now considering moving up
their primary ahead of its tentatively sched-
uled Feb. 2 date in order to keep it the first
GOP primary in the South.
However, South Carolina Democratic
Party Chairwoman Carol Fowler said
Monday an early Florida primary would not
diminish her state's role in the process
because candidates have to bring a personal
"South Carolina's a state in which candi-
dates can have a real impact because it's
small. In Florida, candidates have to spend
millions of dollars on TV to win," Fowler
Crist, a Republican, and other state GOP
leaders have argued Florida's diversity and
size merit more influence in deciding the
"We may not be the first in the nation,
but we're e at the forefront," Crist said. "We
will be the first megastate to weigh in on the
next leader of the free world."
The bill Crist signed also requires a veri-
fiable paper trail for all voting machines
throughout Florida although they won't be in
place for the January primary.
Florida's voting system attracted national
attention in 2000 when dimpled, pregnant
and hanging chads on punch card ballots
held up a final count in the presidential elec-
tion. Florida was eventually decided by 537
votes after the U.S. Supreme Court stepped
in. The state has since banned the punch
In the latest Florida elections debacle,
the federal government is investigating
claims by Democrats that touch-screen vot-
ing machines in Sarasota County failed to
register up to 18,000 votes in the congres-
sional race, handing a win to Republican
Vem Buchanan by 369 votes.
Currently, 15 of Florida's 67 counties,
including Sarasota County, use paperless
touch-screen voting machines. The remain-
ing counties use optical scan machines
where a voter marks a paper ballot with a
pencil and it is electronically scanned.
Asked if he was concerned about poten-
tial presidential primary problems, Crist
said, "I'm concerned about everything. It's
my job. .. It would have been nice if this
could have been done earlier but we're here

By BILL MAXWELL
St. Petersburg Times
After spending the summer trying to shake
off the disappointment over my first year as
a professor at Stillman College, I began the
2005 fall semester looking for even the
smallest signs that I could make a difference
in the lives of black students by setting high
standards and inspiring them to rise to the
The first ray of hope that August morn-
ing came as I unlocked my office door and
was greeted by Constance Bayne, my most
diligent journalism student. The mere fact
that she had bought her textbooks made me
feel some degree of success. My first year,
many students had refused to get the text-
books even when they had vouchers to cover
the cost. Constance's enthusiasm was reas-
suring, and I remember thinking that if I had
10 students like her I could transform the
college into a place that attracted other high
achievers from throughout Alabama.
I became even more hopeful that after-
noon when I met with Stillman president
Ernest McNealey. He had invited me in
2004 to leave the St. Petersburg Times edi-
torial board, revive the journalism major at
the small historically black college in
Tuscaloosa and fulfill a promise I had made
to myself years ago. Now McNealey agreed
it was time to order new computers and
other supplies to open a newsroom for the
student newspaper and for editing and
During those first few weeks of school,
the new equipment began arriving and my
hopes continued to rise. My first year at
Stillman, which had fewer than 1,000 stu-
dents, had not been as smooth or as fulfilling
as I had hoped. My students' academic per-
formance had been generally disappointing,
and I could not persuade most students to
even attend class regularly.
Still, I believed that with a real news-
room we were ready to make significant
progress. Before my arrival at Stillman, my
colleague Lucinda Coulter had produced the
student newspaper on her home computer
without charging the college a dime. With a
campus newsroom, we assumed that our stu-
dents would begin to take the profession
seriously and would love hanging out in
their own space.
We soon learned that we had been naive.
Nothing changed. Students rarely came to
the newsroom except for classes. The major-
ity preferred to socialize with their friends
during their spare time, and others knew that
one way to avoid an assignment for the
newspaper was to avoid the newsroom
where story leads and tips were posted on
the bulletin board.
My colleagues and I were witnessing the
result of low admission standards. Were we
expecting too much of young people who
scored poorly on the SAT, who were rarely
challenged to excel in high school, who were
not motivated to take advantage of opportuni-
ties to learn, who could not imagine where a
sound education could take them?
An unfortunate truth was that most of my
colleagues and I never got an opportunity to
teach the breadth of our knowledge. I had
great difficulty, for example, teaching some-
thing as simple as the distinction between
"historic" and "historical" or between "infer"
and "imply, distinctions that careful writ-
ers, especially journalists, want to know.
I wasn't the only one. A white professor
labored to get her students to critically read
the assignments. She could not discuss the
major themes and literary conventions when
her students did not read. When she got
nowhere with Zora Neale Hurston's novel
Their Eyes Were Watching God, she asked
me to speak to the class. Perhaps a black
professor would have more success talking
about one of the best-known black authors.
A few minutes into my exchange with
the class, I realized the white professor was
not the problein. The students simply did not
or could not read closely. My colleagues
and I could not teach what we had been
trained to teach.
"My students don't use me, an English
professor said. "At most, I may run into two
or three a year who make me work. Talking
over your students' heads is a waste of
Treat students as your own children
Nonetheless, president McNealey and
his administration wanted us to nurture our
students. During faculty meetings, we regu-
larly were encouraged to treat our students
as if they were our own children. We were
responsible for saving them all. This was
familiar terrain; a generation earlier my pro-
fessors had nurtured me at two historically
black colleges, Wiley in Marshall, Texas,
and Bethune-Cookman in Daytona Beach.
Some of them even had given me a few
breaks I may not have deserved.
Many of my Stillman colleagues regular-
ly invited their students to their homes for
dinner. The discussions often were about
personal matters involving romantic rela-
tionships, family crises and money prob-
lems. Professors were the first confidants
many students ever had: Indeed, they often
became surrogate parents.
As a single man living in a small apart-
ment, I did not feel comfortable inviting stu-
dents over. I did go to my colleagues' homes
whenever I was invited to have dinner with
students, and faculty members often attend-
ed student-sponsored events on and off cam-
pus. Some professors even showed up at
their students' churches on Sundays. I am
not a churchgoer, but I rarely missed a foot-
ball or basketball game.
The bottom line was the same as it is at
most HBCUs. Professors who had the best
success connecting with students, especially
below-average male students, emphasized
friendly, personal and supportive involve-
ment in their lives. For example, Stephen
Jackson, who taught sports writing, was an
effective professor because he understood
the importance of winning students' trust.
He even ate lunch in the cafeteria with stu-
dents each day.
This style of teaching, which I grudging-
ly adopted, was unlike anything I had used
during my previous 18 years of teaching on
traditional campuses such as those of the
University of Illinois at Chicago and
Northern Illinois University. On those cam-
puses, professors were respected for their
achievements and position. Subject matter
usually was taught without developing
strong personal relationships between stu-
dents and professors, and professors may
not have cared if students liked them.
At Stillman, being professional but
impersonal created frustration for the stu-
dent and the professor. Students, especially
males, liked and respected the flexible pro-
fessor, and they learned when they respected
The flexible professor encouraged lively
exchanges of subject matter, ideas, beliefs
and opinions during class discussions. The
flexible professor often did not require writ-
ten responses or exams. The flexible profes-
sor let students keep pace by retaking
exams, completing take-home exams or giv-
ing classroom presentations.
I had difficulty becoming flexible. The
majority of my students in the English class
failed to complete most of the assigned read-
ings. Most of their essays were unaccept-
able, and attendance was low. I had a choice:
Abandon my syllabus or flunk more than
half of the class.
I abandoned the syllabus. Instead, I lec-
tured and made assignments based on the
problems and errors in the students' writing.
I went over the same material, such as writ-
ing the topic sentence, again and again

"We're crippling these kids by mothering them, I
told a colleague over a drink one evening.
"We're loving them to death, he replied.
'Some of them don't belong here'
During the fall semester, I would try to make eye
contact with students and speak to them as we passed
in the halls and on The Yard, the grassy campus gath-
ering spot. Very few of them would return my greet-
ings. Most were sullen. But I also saw something
more disturbing in their faces: Many of these young
people were sad and unhappy. Very few smiled.
A colleague who had taught at Stillman for more
than 10 years confirmed my observations. "Our kids
haven't had many good things in their lives, she said.

She was right. A number of students had criminal
records, and others were awaiting trial on criminal
charges. Stillman accepted them because they could
not attend college anywhere else.
Terry Lee Brock, a 41-year-old freshman, was
shot several times by a woman around 2 one morning
in early February in front of the Night Stalker's
Lounge. He died a short time later at the hospital. His
trial for rape had been scheduled to begin the follow-
I did not learn until after his death that many of
our female students were afraid of Terry. At least two
told me they had complained to college officials that
an alleged rapist was allowed on campus.
While we had students such as Terry who had no
business being on a college campus, we went out of
our way to help others who faced adversity and
worked to overcome it.
S"A lot of my students reared themselves and their
sisters and brothers, Lucinda said. "They're adults
before they're ready to be adults."
One of my students, a 25-year-old senior journal-
ism major, grew up in several foster homes in differ-
ent states. At Stillman, she had a part-time job, carried
a full academic load and wrote for the student news-
paper. She was an inspiration. When she graduated, I
wrote a letter of recommendation that helped her land
a public relations job in Atlanta. Her boss e-mailed me
a few months later to say that my student was doing
well and could stay with the firm as long as she want-
The college did not keep an accurate count, but we
knew many young women on campus were mothers.
One of my students was a 20-year-old mother of two
pressed for time and money. But she had good atten-
dance and turned in passable homework.
I met several students who had legally adopted
their siblings. For one reason or another, their parents
were temporarily or permanently absent. Some of my
colleagues and I empathized and gave these students
breaks, such as giving them take-home quizzes and
exams and sometimes excusing them from class if
they had written excuses from their employers.
We also had a handful of exemplary students.
Leonard Merriman IV, who wrote for the student
newspaper, was from New Orleans and did not know
the whereabouts of his mother for several weeks after
Hurricane Katrina. He was an inspiration to students
and professors because he was intellectually curious,
read voraciously and dared to be a nerd in an environ-
ment that celebrated everything hip-hop and catego-
rized students by their fraternities or sororities.
After I had assigned a paper on the 2004 presiden-

tial election, and required students to quote at least
three political experts, a football player raised his
hand one day and asked if he could use Leonard as an
expert. The class cracked up, but I had to think about
the question. Leonard- claimed to have read all of
George W. Bush's campaign speeches, and he easily
rattled off statistics and summarized Bush's positions.
I decided Leonard was an expert and the football
player could quote him. But we did not have many
students like him. Instead of taking pride in being
exemplary students, many were devotees of hip-hop
culture. They were anti-intellectual, rude and profane.
I always was amazed that so many of the women
tolerated the crude way the men spoke to them. One
afternoon in my English class, a male student called a
young woman "a big-assed ugly bitch." I expected her
to slap him, and I would not have intervened. Instead,
she dismissed the whole thing with a wave of her hand
and turned to chat with her roommate. After class, I
asked her about the insult.
"That fool don't mean nothing to me, she said.
"He ain't nothing but a stupid brother from Anniston
The lesson was clear and disheartening: Personal
insult, crude language and threatening behavior were
a way of life for many students. I saw this kind of
exchange repeated dozens of times in the classroom
and on The Yard. I had no doubt that the influences of
hip-hop contributed greatly to this ugly reality and
other deleterious trends.
"Have you noticed that our students never have a
sense of urgency?" a colleague asked one afternoon as
we walked to a faculty meeting. "They don't seem to
be going anywhere in particular. They just stand
around or mosey along. Frivolity."
He was right. Greek organization activities such
as step shows the rhythmical, patterned dance move-
ments favored by fraternities and sororities and any
excuse to party and play music were the most impor-
tant events on campus.
When a professor brought a special lecturer to
campus, the rest of us would require our students to
attend the event. But more often than not only a hand-
ful would show up, a great source of embarrassment
for the professors. I never invited any of my fellow
journalists to campus. Besides the stinging embarrass-
ment of low attendance, I resented the hassle of round-
ing up students for their own enlightenment.
'I'm going to be a nurse'
The effects of poverty made teaching and learning
arduous. I asked a student why she always fell asleep
in my reporting and news writing class.
"I work full-time at Target at night, she.said. "I
can't get enough sleep."
I asked the obligatory questions: Why did she
work so many tours? Did her family help her? What
was she spending her money on? Did she have finan-
cial aid? Did she have a scholarship? Did she live on
Her life's story was heartbreaking and yet typical
of so many others. Born and reared in Selma, she was
19 years old. She had met her father once when she
was 10. Her mother had been in and out of jail until
her death in 1996 at age 34. Her then-64-year-old
grandmother had assumed responsibility for her and
her three siblings.
Although she had a student loan to help pay
tuition, she had to pay for everything else and needed
a car to get to work and to drive back to Selma. She
also had to send money to.her grandmother, who was
living on Social Security and money from a part-time
job as a caretaker for a disabled woman. Everyone
except her grandmother said this teenager had no busi-
ness attending college. Her place was in Selma with
the rest of the family.

I had no doubt she would become a nurse.

As we talked, I noticed her stealing glances at the
basket of cosmetics and toiletries (soap, toothpaste,
shampoo, conditioner, lotion) I had placed on my desk
for the first time the day before. These were iteins I
had collected when I traveled and stayed in hotels.
Trying to ease her embarrassment, I said: "If you
want some of that stuff, take it. I need to get rid of it."
She hesitated. Faking nonchalance, she studied
the items without touching anything.
"Go ahead and take what you want, I said.
She picked up bottles of shampoo, lotion and con-
"Take some toothpaste, too, I said.
She took a tube of toothpaste, smiled and thanked

Word got around about the basket. A few days
later, several other students dropped in to inspect the
items. A week later, the basket was empty.
Each week after that, I went to Kmart and CVS
and shopped for travel-size cosmetics and toiletries to
replenish the basket. I learned that several other pro-
fessors also found acceptable ways to make personal
items available to students free of charge.
We treated the students, even those who disap-
pointed us, as if they were our children. I often won-

One taker for a big trip
In early October, Lucinda and I planned a field
trip to Washington for the 10th anniversary celebra-
tion of the Million Man March. Learning often takes
place outside the classroom, and we thought our stu-
dents would benefit from being around thousands of
other black Americans who would travel from across
the country to the National Mall. They also would see
how professional journalists cover a national news
We reserved a college van for the 800-mile drive
from Tuscaloosa. Six students agreed to come, and
Lucinda and I reserved several Washington hotel
rooms on our personal credit cards. But the day before
we were to leave, all but one student backed out and
we canceled the trip. Once again, I was angry and dis-
This wasn't the first nor the last time many stu-
dents would pass up an opportunity to escape the cam-
pus and learn something.
We took only four students on a three-day trip to
the University of Georgia and its student newspaper
because eight others refused to go.
One didn't want to spend four hours in a van. Two
others said they had quizzes on the morning that we
were to leave, even though they would have been
excused from class. When it was time to go, they sim-
ply did not show up.
They missed a great experience. At the University
of Georgia, our four students attended lectures and
spent two evenings at the office of the Red & Black,
Oie student newspaper. They had never seen the news-
room of a daily publication. They attended a budget
meeting, where the staff members decided which sto-
ries to publish in the next issue. Each Stillman student
shadowed an editor and a reporter, and each worked
on a real story in real time.
Campus-wide, professors bought many of their
classroom and office supplies. In my building, for
example, we rarely had an ample supply of paper for
our copy machine. I learned early to buy my own
paper and keep it in my desk.
Chalk? Forget about it.
Setting fires in the dorm
While disagreeable staff members and financial
red tape were constant irritants, nothing was more
appalling than the students' disregard for college prop-
During the spring semester, the Tuscaloosa Fire
Department put out trash can fires in King Hall. I was
angry and embarrassed to see a team of white fire-
fighters trying to save a dormitory named for the Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr. that black students had trashed.
"Why do they do this to their own buildings?" a
white firefighter asked me.
I went inside the dorm to see the damage..
Students had stuffed trash cans with paper and fabric
and set them on fire. The smoke damage was enor-
mous. The walls were blackened, the windows were
smudged and the pungent smell of smoke lingered and
stuck to everything.
.Two of my students, both journalism majors, were
desperate to move out of King Hall. The last time I -
saw them, one had found an apartment and the other-
was looking for a place he could afford.
I've wasted two years
By the end of the spring semester, I knew that I
could not remain at Stillman another year. I had a few
good students, but a few were not enough. One morn-
ing as I dressed for work, I accepted the reality that
too much of my time was being wasted on students
who did not care. I felt guilty about wanting to leave.
But enough was enough.
A week before I left Stillman as a professor, I
drove through the main gate en route to a final exam.
As always, I saw a group of male students hanging out
in front of King Hall.
The same four I had seen when I drove onto cam-
pus nearly two years earlier were milling about on the
lawn. I parked my car and walked over-to the group.
"Why don't you all hang out somewhere else?" I
"Who you talking to, old nigger?" one said.
"You give the school a bad image out here, I
"Hang out somewhere else or at least go to the
library and read a book, I said.
They laughed and dismissed me with stylized
waves of the arm. 1 walked back to my old Chevy
Blazer, sad but relieved that I would be leaving.
In my office, 1 sat at my desk staring at a stack of
papers to be graded. I'm wasting my time, I thought.
I've wasted two years of my professional life. I don't

Using prescription medications to party has become a popular thing to do. In
fact, many teens are under the false impression that they can get a "safe" high
and party longer by using these types of drugs. Before your teen goes out, .' .':
double-check your medicine cabinets.

As your teen gets older, he will push boundaries and limits. When you and

Spices / Fish Brai
Advance Preparation: 3 to
8 hours for marinating the
Brai is the South
African word used to
describe a barbecue. You
may be surprised by t9h
ings (curry, ginger, and
coconut milk) in this
recipe, but not once you
know that South Africa has
large Indian and Malaysian
communities. I find that
the curry and coconut milk
have a wonderful way of
bringing out the sweetness
Cooking a whole fish
on the grill always presents
a challenge. If you cooknit
directly over live fire, you
run the risk of burning the
skin before the center of
the fish is cooked. You also
face the tricky task of
inverting the fish without
having it fall apart. South
Africans solve the problem
by using the indirect
grilling method, so you
don't need to turn the fish.
1 snapper, whole, blue-
fish, sea bass, or other
large fish (3 1/2 to 4
pounds), cleaned and
trimmed of fins, head and
tail left on.
Salt and freshly ground
black pepper, to taste.
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin,
1 tablespoon curry pow-
1 tablespoon paprika, hot
or 1 to 2 teaspoons
3 tablespoons vegetable
3 tablespoons coconut
2 tablespoons lemon

By: Phillip Jackson
There is no longer a
need for dire predictions,
hand-wringing, or appre-
hension about losing a gen-
eration of Black boys. It is
too late. In education,
incarceration, health, hous-
ing, and parenting, we have
lost a generation of young
Black men. The question
that remains is will we lose
the next two or three gener-
ations, or possibly every
generation of Black boys
hereafter to the streets, neg-
ative media, gangs, drugs,
poor education, unemploy-
ment, father absence, crime,
violence and death.
Most young Black men
in the United States don't
graduate from high school.
Only 35% of Black male
students graduated from
high school in Chicago and
only 26% in New York City,
according to a 2006 report
by The Schott Foundation
for Public Education. Only a
few Black boys who finish
high school actually attend
college, and of those few
Black boys who enter col-
lege, nationally, only 22%
of them finish college.
Young Black male stu-
dents have the worst grades,
the lowest test scores, and
the highest dropout rates of
all students in the country.
When these young Black
men don't succeed in school,
they are much more likely to
succeed in the nation's crim-
inal justice and penitentiary
system. And it was discov-
ered recently that even when
a young Black man gradu-
ates from a U.S. college,
there is a good chance that
he is from Africa, the
Caribbean or Europe, and
not the United States.
Black men in prison in
America have become as
American as apple pie.
There are more Black men
in prisons and jails in the
United States (about 1.1
million) than there are Black
men incarcerated in the rest
of the world combined. This
criminalization process now
starts in elementary schools
with Black male children as
young as six and seven
years old being arrested in
staggering numbers accord-
ing to a 2005 report,
Education on Lockdown by
the Advancement Project.
The rest of the world is
watching and following the
lead of America. Other
England, Canada, Jamaica,
Brazil and South Africa are
adopting American social
policies that encourage the
incarceration and destruc-
tion of young Black men.
This is leading to a world-
wide catastrophe. But still,
there is no adequate
response from the American
or global Black community.
Worst of all is the pas-
sivity, neglect and disen-
gagement of the Black com-
munity concerning the
future of our Black boys. We
do little while the future
lives of Black boys are
being destroyed in record
numbers. The schools that
Black boys attend prepare
them with skills that will
make them obsolete before,
and if, they graduate. In a
strange and perverse way,
the Black community, itself,
has started to wage a kind of
war against young Black
men and has become part of
this destructive process.
Who are young Black
women going to marry?
Who is going to build and
maintain the economies of
Black communities? Who is
going to anchor strong fam-
ilies in the Black communi-
ty? Who will young Black
boys emulate as they grow
into men? Where is the out-
Black Men VERY SAD
rage of the Black communi-
ty at the destruction of its
Black boys? Where are the
plans and the supportive
actions to change this? Is
this the beginning of the end
of the Black people in
The list of those who
have failed young Black
men includes our govern-
ment, our- foundations, our
schools, our media, our
Black churches, our Black
leaders, and even our par-
ents. Ironically, experts say
that the solutions to the
problems of young Black
men are simple and relative-
ly inexpensive, but they may
not be easy, practical or pop-
It is not that we lack
solutions as much as it is
that we lack the will to
implement these solutions to
save Black boys. It seems
that government is willing
to pay billions of dollars to
lock up young Black men,
rather than the millions it
would take to prepare them
to become viable contribu-
tors and valued members of

I'm the only girl out of five boys in my family. I'm not the old-
est but because my mom was a single parent, I had to grow up too
fast and take care of my siblings. I've been on my own for two
years and my mother won't accept the fact that she can't boss me
around anymore. I don't mind babysitting while she works but
my life is my priority. We argue a lot because I won't stay from
work, skip college classes or give her money. How do I deal with
this and hold on to respect?
Tired Daughter Columbia, SC
Dear Tired Daughter:
You've been a babysitter for so long that your mother feels the loss and the financial impact.
Your mother spent so much time working and raising the kids she didn't notice you growing up,
developing your own personality and becoming a woman. She still views you as a child. Have
a discussion with her as you help her begin to know you as an adult. Remind her the other kids
will be grown soon as you offer to help when you can and when you can't offer solutions that
My boyfriend gave me a fake purse for my birthday and I really liked a lot. My mind changed
drastically when I found out he gave someone else a purse like it. However, the purse he gave
to another girl was real and he spent a lot of money on it. Now I'm beginning to think that he
cheats on me because I've noticed changes in his behavior, he disappears and acts funny. I guess
he's been doing this for a while but the purse made me notice.
Suspicious On-Line Reader
The moment you learned he gave another female a gift is the moment you should have got with
the program. To make matters worse, he gave you the cheapie so that should tell you how he
really feels about you. Its shameful that it took a material possession to reveal what you were
too silly to see. All in all you came out on top. Look on the bright side and thank him for spar-
ing you from a broken heart, looking like a fool and getting played like a sucker.
My brother is dating a girl that is using him. She's pretty and that's why my brother runs after
her like a sick dog. It really bothers me to see this. He acts as if he has to do everything for her,
do what she says and can't think for himself. I've seen her out with guys and she talks on the
phone to several of my male friends but she claims it's innocent. I don't believe her especial-
ly after seeing her in the club with a guy. How do, I expose her and her lies?
Temia Sacramento, CA
If your brother wants to be a mat that's walked all over, there's not much you can do to change
it. Obviously he's content being used and sharing his girlfriend. The best you can do is give
him advice to be cautious, pay attention to the signs and be clear of his expectations in his rela-
tionship. If he chooses to ignore the words of wisdom, sit back and be ready to support him when
she takes him to the cleaners, hurts him and bleeds him dry.

violencee is a ver serious issue in Jacksonville.
It is something that has tragically and personal\
touched many of our citizens and, in mrn. has
affected us all. In response. we have banded
together to fight gun-related crime. As \\e do so,
we should not lose sight of the successes we've
had in reducing other crimes in Jacksonville, particularly domestic homicide,
and use them as inspiration.
The Intimate Violence Enhanced Services Team (InVEST), a partnership
between the City of Jacksonville Victim's Services Division, Hubbard House and
the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO), is having a dramatic impact on domestic
homicides. It is comprised of a detective from JSO, two advocates from
Hubbard House and two staff members from the Victim Services Division who
reach out to victims of domestic violence and offer them shelter, safety planning,
relocation, financial assistance and referrals to other victim service providers.
Since the creation of InVEST in 1999, domestic homicides in Jacksonville
have decreased by 62 percent, and not one of the clients served in this program
has died from domestic violence-related causes. In fact, the program recently
received a national award for Professional Innovation in Victim Services from
the U.S. Department of Justice, recognizing its role in reducing these homicides
in our city.
InVEST is making a tremendous difference in Jacksonville. Unfortunately,
programs like InVEST may be lost because of the constraints Tallahassee is put-
ting on our budget. Proposed property tax changes in the state legislature mean
Jacksonville could lose between $15 and $50 million this budget year, and each
budget year thereafter.
My staff and I are developing ways to limit the impact this reform will have
on our local budget and the services city government provides. But, it will be
impossible for us to experience that extreme loss of money without re-examin-
ing and potentially cutting some services that are not core to government's func-
So that we may continue to provide services like InVEST, please contact your
state legislators and urge them to support property tax reform that will not leave
Jacksonville $50 million short this budget year. You can locate contact informa-
tion for your legislator by logging on to www.coj.net and typing "Duval

in the mainstream
media. Poetry has even entered daily home life with poetry magnets on
American refrigerators. To celebrate poetry, Jacksonville Public Library will
host Branching Out: Poetry for the 21st Century.
A highly successful national initiative now in its second series, Branching
Out: Poetry for the 21st Century is hosted by public libraries in seven cities
across the U.S. Sponsored jointly by two of the country's preeminent poetry
organizations-Poets House and the Poetry Society of America-Branching
Out is made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for
the Humanities. The goal of the initiative is to encourage the general public
to read and enjoy poetry.
The Branching Out program series comes to Jacksonville with a talk by
poet/scholar E. Ethelbert Miller on the life and work of famed Harlem
Renaissance poet Langston Hughes on Tuesday, June 12th.
Topic: Langston Hughes, Harlem Renaissance poet
Speaker: E. Ethelbert Miller
Tuesday, June 12, 2007 at 6 p.m.
Main Library, 303 N. Laura St.
What are Langston Hughes' lessons? The life and work of Harlem
Renaissance poet Langston Hughes echoes the social transformation of
America from the 1920s to the early 1960s. Exploring the tough tapestry of
race, an examination of his work will help library customers learn more about
America. How did he put blues and jazz into his words? What was his secret
to incorporating these musical genres into his work? Audience members will
discover how Hughes changed literature. Ethelbert Miller will explore these
topics and more in his talk "Dance with the Dreamer."
E. Ethelbert Miller is an award-winning poet, academic and literary
activist, who has helped to launch the careers of many professional writers.
This spring, Miller was honored with the Barnes & Nobles Writers for Writers
Award, recognizing authors who have given generously to other writers or to
the broader literary community. Miller is author of ten published books.
Since 1974, Miller has been the director of the African American Resource
Center at Hclvard University.

U of F Hurricane Simulator
U of Florida Builds New
Hurricane Simulator With
130mph Wind Capability
It will huff, and puff, and blow the house in but only
for research purposes.
Two days before the start of the 2007 hurricane season,
University of Florida wind engineers unveiled the world's
largest portable hurricane wind and rain simulator. Mounted
on a trailer, the industrial-sized behemoth is composed of
eight 5-foot-tall industrial fans powered by four marine
diesel engines that together produce 2,800 horsepower. To
cool the engines, the system taps water from a 5,000-gallon
tank aboard a truck that doubles as the simulator's tow vehi-
UF civil and coastal engineers plan to use the simulator
to blast vacant homes with winds of up to 130 mph -
Category 3 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale and
high-pressure water jets that mimic wind-driven torrential
rain. The goal: to learn more about exactly how hurricanes
damage homes, and how to modify them to best prevent that
"We want to conduct experiments to evaluate real homes
in communities that are impacted by hurricanes," said
Forrest Masters, an assistant professor of civil and coastal
engineering and the leader of the project. "This simulator
also gives us the ability to test home retrofits and new build-
ing products aimed at preventing hurricane damage."
The simulator, which cost about $500,000 in parts and
labor, was designed and constructed entirely by Masters, lab
manager Jimmy Jesteadt and a team of undergraduate stu-
Unlike previous, smaller simulators, the new simulator
uses an innovative hydraulic system, rather than chains or
mechanical drive trains, to transfer power from the engines
to the fans. Designed by Linde Hydraulics Corporation and
Cunningham Fluid Power Inc., the engines spin pumps,
which then drive fluid through motors housed in the fans.
The result is lighter, less bulky and safer than traditional
drive systems, Masters said.
At full power, the fans turn at about 1,800 revolutions
per minute, producing wind speeds of about 100 mph. A
custom-built duct reduces the space available for the air to
flow through, ratcheting up the wind speeds to a potential
130 mph. Steering vanes allow the engineers to direct the air
wherever they want it to blow.
Implanted in the vanes, the water jets can simulate the
most extreme rainfall of up to 35 inches per hour, although
8 inches per hour is more typical, Masters said.
In a related project, the researchers built several portable
hurricane wind monitoring towers that were deployed in the
path of land-falling hurricanes in recent years.
"When this program first started, we brought the lab to
the hurricane," Masters said. "Now, we're bringing the hur-
ricane back to the lab."
Earliest Known Memorial Celebration
as Blacks Honored White Union Dead
By Kevin M Levin
It is probably safe to
assume that the past
Memorial Day Weekend
saw an increase in stories
purporting to demonstrate
the origin of this commem-
oration. Even as we
emphasize our nationalistic
zeal, our fascination with
the old saw of North v.
South will be highlighted
for our reading pleasure.
No doubt the question
will be framed in terms of
when white Americans
gathered to commemorate
the first memorial day.
Little thought will be given
to the possibility that our
tendency to see the Civil
War as a white man's war is
both too narrow and overly
simplistic. This is the story
of how black
rated Union soldiers buried
in a local race track in
Charleston, Sooth Carolina.
After Charleston, was
evacuated in February 1865
near the end of the Civil
War, most of the people
remaining among the ruins
of the city were thousands
of blacks. During the final
eight months.of the war,
Charleston had been bom-
barded by Union batteries
and gunboats, and much of
its magnificent architecture
lay in ruin. Also during the
final months of war the
Confederates had converted
the Planters' Race Course (a
horse track) into a prison in
which some 257 Union sol-
diers had died and were
thrown into a mass grave
behind the grandstand.
In April, more than
twenty black carpenters and
laborers went to the
gravesite, reinterred the
bodies in proper graves,
built a tall fence around the
cemetery enclosure one
hundred yards long, and
built an archway over an
entrance. On the archway
they inscribed the words,
"Martyrs of the Race
Course." And with great
organization, on May 1,
1865, the black folk of
members of Union regi-
ments and various white
abolitionists such as James
Redpath. The crowd gath-
ered in the graveyard; five
black preachers read from
Scripture, and a black chil-
dren's choir sang
"America," "We Rally
Around the Flag," the "Star-
spangled Banner," and sev-
eral' spirituals. Then the
solemn occasion broke up
into an afternoon of speech-
as white Americans chose
to ignore the theme of
emancipation and in its
place substituted a narrative
that could more easily bring
about sectional reunion.
The remembrance of such
events, however, challenges
those who continue to
downplay or ignore entirely
the role that slavery played
in the secession debates and
the eventual outcome of the
war itself. Regardless of
An antique stereo photograph of the Charleston Race Course where Union Prisoners of War were held.
While mostly enlisted men, there is some indication that some officers were also there. It was a horse
racing track located in Charleston, SC near the present day Citadel. and was also known as the

terrible condition of the men who had survived Camp Sumter, Andersonville, GA
Charleston, in cooperation
with white missionaries,
teachers, and Union troops,

schools) marching around

This was the first
Memorial Day. Black
Charlestonians had given
birth to an American tradi-
tion. By their labor, their
words, their songs, and their
solemn parade of roses and
lilacs and marching feet on
their former masters' race
course, they had created the
Independence Day of the
To this day hardly any-
one in Charleston, or else-
where, even remembers this
story. Quite remarkably, it
all but vanished from mem-
ory. But in spite of all the
other towns in America that
claim to be the site of the
first Memorial Day (all
claiming spring, 1866),
African Americans and
Charleston deserve pride of
place. Why not imagine a
new rebirth of the American
nation with this scene?
It is easy to see how
such an event could be lost
during the postwar period
whether we choose to
remember these central
themes, black Americans
clearly did view the war
along these lines. And that
is not up for debate.

Tony Thomas, the hotshot Seminole second baseman
can add another accolade to his growing list this year.
Collegiate Baseball named the junior second baseman
it's Louisville Slugger national player of the year the
same honor bestowed on another Seminole, Shane
Robinson, in 2005.
Thomas, one of the few Seminoles to hit well in the
ACC tournament last week, was named to the publica-
tion's All-America first team as was catcher Buster Posey
and pitcher Bryan Henry. Seventeen players were named
to the first team.
Matt LaPorta, the Gators big-bat and first baseman
made the second team as did JU's Pete Clifford.
The Baseball Grounds
A little plug for the home town here. The Baseball
Grounds of Jacksonville is first class. Few major cities,
short of those with resident major league teams, have as
nice a facility. Few people are probable aware of the fact
that the facility even includes it's own indoor batting tun-
nel. The Baseball Grounds complements the city's pro-
fessional baseball tradition which goes back to 1904. We
have had a professional team now for 61 straight years!
San Antonio Spurs
As much as the individual talents of Tim Duncan,
Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili frustrated the Utah Jazz
in the Western Conference finals, the San Antonio Spurs
have something else: going for them their collective
These guys are the oldest team in the league, with
group of seasoned players who've won championships,
or gone deep into the playoffs. They have been there,
they don't get rattled. Their confidence comes from the
best possible source experience. And now they take it
to either Detroit or Cleveland.
The Pistons and Cavs are locked in a good one. As of
press time an average of 4 points per game separate the
two teams, the home team has won all four games this
series will go down to the wire.
There was a time last winter when the Detroit Pistons
were the Eastern Conference's biggest donut team: star
power around the outside with a hole in the middle.
They went 3-7 in a 10-game winter stretch before
acquiring Chris Webber from the Philadelphia 76ers. The
turnaround was instantaneous and the Pistons went on a
15-3 run once Webber joined the starting lineup.
Webber is still Detroit's starting center, but Webber's
non-performance has been a big reason for Detroit's
sputtering offensive production line. The Fab Five alum-
nus scored two points in 20 minutes in Detroit's Game 4
loss to the Cavs on Tuesday night, the sixth time in eight
games in which Webber's been held to single-digits.
In my opinion, Webber has to either get in the game
or get on the bench. Webber's last true shining moment
was Game 2 against the Chicago Bulls in the second
round. He scored 22 points to spot Detroit a 2-0 lead in
the series. The Pistons need better if they want to play in

Bryan Henry Loses First Game of Season
It wasn't the new format of the ACC baseball tournament
that did the Seminoles in. It was the inability to do what
Florida State has been able. to do all year put big numbers
on the board.
It was Clemson's 5-1 win at, the Baseball Grounds on
Saturday that dropped the Seminoles to 1-2 in pool play and
ended any hope they had of winning their first ACC title
"Our team knows how good we are and what we can do
and what we can accomplish, and we've just got to stick with
that," FSU second baseman Tony Thomas said. "We're
going to go into regionals with a lot of confidence, and I'm
pretty sure we'll get the job done this week."
"It would have been nice to, as a senior, bring back
something to Tallahassee that we haven't gotten in a while,
but the big goal is still out there," FSU starting pitcher Bryan
Henry said. "The seniors can still bring back a national title,
and that's the main goal right now."
Henry (14-1), the ACC pitcher of the year, lost for the
first time this season. He allowed four runs (two earned) on
nine hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings. It was the first time
he failed to pitch at least six innings since Feb. 23 against

Clemson (38-21) took a 2-0 lead thanks to two-out sin-
gles by Addison Johnson in the second and Marquez Smith
in the fifth. The Tigers scored two unearned runs in the sixth

Clemson's David Kopp pitched a complete game, allow-
ing one unearned run on six hits. He retired 12 batters in a

radio. "Tough as it is to come to that conclusion there's
no other alternative."
Bryant, who helped the Lakers win three consecutive
NBA championships, has four years left on the seven-
year, $136.4 million contract he signed July 15, 2004.
That was a day after Shaquille O'Neal was traded to the
gle past the drawn in Gator infield to-score Smoak with the
decisive run. All four of USC's runs on the afternoon were
Moving to the losers bracket Thursday, the Gators won
a tight 3-2 decision over seventh seeded Alabama. The
Gators had a great effort by Bryan Augenstein who captured
his fourth-straight decision by hurling a complete game in
his postseason debut. He went the distance for the second
time this year and became the first Florida pitcher to toss a
complete game at the SEC Tourney since Connor
Falkenbach blanked Georgia, 7-0, on May 28, 2004. The
6'5" righty yielded eight hits and two runs, with eight
strikeouts and zero walks.
The win set up a futile Gator rematch with South
Carolina. The Gamecocks Mike Cisco notched eight strike-
outs over seven innings as South Carolina eliminated sixth-
seeded Florida 5-3. with their second win over the Gators
in the past three days.

Did You Hear About?
EDTO' ll* A/ upcsaedee noen nespoe iit n
(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) You have a
goal in mind big
trampling on others to get
there -- it's bad for your
karma! Around Tuesday
and Wednesday, you're
more of an idea person
rather than an action go-
getter. Get in cahoots with
someone who thinks like
you do for double the
brainpower (and double
the fun, too). Then after all
that conscious thought,
your subconscious has a
message for you at the end
of the workweek. Write
down those dreams and
tune into those visions.
This weekend, toss the
schedule aside and see
what allures you from
moment to moment.
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) If you've been
..... thinking about-
getting out of
town, go ahead
and firm up
those plans on Monday
when the stars smile on
future journeys. Tuesday
and Wednesday bring some
unusual energy your way,
perhaps in the form of a
work or a personal chal-
lenge. This could be a
bend-or-break situation --
which will you do? After
this, fun with friends (or a
romantic interest) is in
order at the end of the
workweek. Those who
know and love you best
energize you, and vice
versa. This weekend you
just might be impetuous,
spontaneous and ready to
dive into something new.
(Gemini May 21st thru
June 21st) If you're con-
fused or indeci-
expect a sudden
flash of insight
on Monday. Around
Tuesday and Wednesday,
however, if you apply
yourself, you're likely to
experience the dawning of
a useful point of view. To
prompt it, consider the
most outlandish of options
and seek out advice from
an odd source. An email, a
text or other communique
could be misunderstood at
the end of the workweek;
beware of assumptions
now. When the weekend
comes, your feelings will
come across beautifully.
(Cancer June 22nd thru
July 22nd) Playing hooky
or working from
home might not
be a bad idea
because your regular rou-
tine may present some
irregular issues now.
Around Tuesday and
Wednesday be sure to direct
negative feelings appropri-
ately. You don't want to end
up tangling with your boss
when your relationship's the
source of your frustration --
or vice versa. But spread
the good stuff around. By
the end of the workweek,
the stars are sending plenty
of mojo your way. You'll
click with others now in a
most satisfying way. This
weekend, do what it takes
to truly unwind.
(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) Wanna make a
on Monday? It's
easy -- make it
all about them.
They'll think you're the cat's
pajamas (accurately, of
course). Around Tuesday
and Wednesday, some-
body's quirks may make
you crazy, but even you can
admit you've got a few of
your own. Try to loosen up
or laugh it off. Your work or
personal priorities require
attention at the end of the
workweek. The most
appealing possibilities may
not ultimately satisfy you.
This weekend, almost any-
thing's fun, so why not try
something entirely differ-
(Virgo August 23rd thru
September 22nd) On
-.. Monday, fit in
some fun -- a lit-
tle flirtation, a
quick coffee with
a friend, whatever it takes
to kick the week off right.
Around Tuesday and
Wednesday, you have the
tenacity to apply yourself to
a task or situation, but then
again, if you think more
freely first, an entirely new
and improved approach
may present itself. Don't
overlook esoteric ideas. Try
saying 'I hear what you're
saying' at the end of the
workweek even if you're
thinking 'You're a total
wingnut.' You just might
change your mind. Watch
your wallet and any inter-
twined finances this week-
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd) If you
dragging a bit on
er why you're
feeling this way. You'll
want to have your emotion-
al state sorted out by
Tuesday and Wednesday.
Expect some pretty spectac-
ular energy from the stars,
including a possible roman-
tic interlude. Your knack for
'getting' others is hot now.
Don't expect big results.
You might be disappointed
at the end of the workweek,
but smaller plans will go
rather nicel'. As for the
weekend, find opportunities
to cooperate and compete.
Have some fun -- create
something or play a game,
one-on-one or in a group.
(Scorpio October 23rd
thru November 21st)
You're a people
S person and
super aware of
on Monday, so seize this
day big time! Around
Tuesday and Wednesday,
family and/or household
matters should be a priori-
ty. A little maintenance of
your relationships and sur-
roundings now prevents
issues later. Then it's time
to leave mundane stuff
(mostly) behind and stretch
that imagination at the end
of the workweek. Think
big, think bold, think beau-
tiful -- and think romance!
This weekend,. look for
common ground rather
than conflict. Being the
one to make the first over-
tur4 feels fantastic.
22nd thru December 21st)
A penny saved is
a penny you can
spend on some-
thing bigger and
better later on Monday.
Around Tuesday and
Wednesday, you have a.
bright, shiny quality that
attracts others; your gen-
uine interest in them keeps
'em around. Don't forget to
share your latest odd fasci-
nation. At the end of the
workweek, it's a good thing
your head is securely
attached. You're prone to
lose most everything else,
including track of time at a
crucial moment if you're
not careful. A great date or
an outing with friends this
weekend might involve a
game -- wanna. watch or
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!
thru February 18th) Do
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
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th) Work's
not where it's at
for you as the
week begins --
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!
SHE OWED HIM $10.00
SO HE BEAT HER UP An
officer was dispatched to the i'*k
area of Mayport and Plaza in
reference to a battery that had
just occurred. The com-.
plainant/witness was follow- .
ing the suspect, Mr. B, who "
was with another subject, and : '.
had just entered a convenience '
store at the 1200 block of
Mayport Rd. The officer made ', .ii
contact with the suspect when -,l
he exited the store and spoke f
with him and the other sub-
ject. Another officer was on a
call across the street and was'-
flagged down by the witness/complainant, Mr. H., who advised the officer that
he just witnessed the entire beating and followed the suspect and other black
male, watching them enter the store and exiting and now talking to the other offi-
cer. The second officer then took the witness/complainant across the street to
identify the suspect, which he did. He said the suspect struck the victim in the
face with his fist and that she fell to the ground and the suspect kept hitting her
and kicking her. He said that the suspect said the victim owed him $10.00 and
that is why he beat her up. The officer made contact with the victim, Ms. SL, and
another black male who witnessed the incident. Ms. SL said that the suspect
thinks that she owes him $10.00,,but she does not think that she does. Suspect
Mr. B, denied any knowledge of the events and continuously stated that the offi-
cers were "fu ked up" and "framing" him. He was placed under arrest.
HE YELLED "BLACK PEOPLE, CHECK THIS OUT!" An officer
responded to assist an officer who was inves-
tigating an alleged auto theft in the 1300
*. .:- -- block of West 11th St. He recognized a black
male with dredlocks that fit the description of
a car thief in another incident involving a
stolen car. As they approached the defendant
? and asked for his identification. The defen-
dant immediately began yelling obscenities
and accusing them of harassing him for no
..."-' ."-. other reason that his race. He told them that
he had no identification on him and turned-to
leave. The officer had to repeat several
instructions for the defendant to stand still
and identify himself, and to that he responded by insisting that they were harass-
ing him and he yelled out toward bystanders, saying, "Black people, check this
HE LASTED 21 DAYS. ON PROBATION, NOW HE HAS TO SERVE 5
YEARS IN PRISON A warrant was served on Mr. EG after he was placed on
probation 21 days ago for the offense
of Public Assistance Fraud in the ", -
Circuit Court of Duval County, for a
term of five years in accordance with '-
the provisions of Chapter 948, Florida
Statues, and that the offender has not .
properly conducted himself, but has.
violated the conditions of his proba- .,
tion in a material respect by Violation 'j'
of Condition 4 of the Order of
Probation, by failing to live and
remain in liberty without violating any
law by committing the criminal
offense of Grand Theft Unspecified -
$300 to less than $5,000. The subject
was read his constitutional Rights and transported to the PTDF.
NOT ONLY DUI IS DANGEROUS, WHAT ABOUT DRIVING WHILE
"MD" AND "B" ON A DRINKING BINGE An officer was dispatched to a
residence where the wife of the victim, Mr. B, stated that she was in bed about a
month ago, while her husband was watching television. She said she woke up
and he was gone. When she looked outside, the car was gone. She called her hus-
band's cell phone and he stated that he was on Merit Rd. and would be home in
fifteen minutes. The complainant said she has not seen or heard from him since
then. She said that he does not have a car adaptor to charge his cell phone and
that the battery is dead. She also stated that she received a bank statement and
that there were A.T.M. transactions from Merrill Rd. three days after he had left.

The complainant stated that her husband
has been diagnosed as Manic Depressive
and Bipolar. She said that he stopped tak-
ing his medication several weeks prior to
his disappearance. Also, she stated that he
has been on a drinking binge. She stated
that she did not report him as missing ear-
lier because he has done this before, how-
ever, he has never been gone this long. A
check on the car revealed that it was towed
from the 3100 block of N. Myrtle Ave.
two weeks ago. The victim was entered
into tle missing person files.,

L a t i n u m
Republic has a new girl
group exploding on the
scene called Candy Hill.
Their new single
"Juicy" will drop June
5. This trio of young
ladies from South
Central Los Angeles
and Compton are com-
ing out of the gate way
ahead of. the crowded
girl group pack. They
not only have the sexy
good looks, dance
moves and sound; they
write, produce, play
instruments and one is
an audio engineer who
is proficient on Pro
Tools. They produce
and engineer their own
sessions. Their appeal is
alluring and is attracting
massive cyber space
attention. The group's
dyhillmusic site had
generated over 2 mil-
lion plays in the first
three months and still
averages 10,000 hits per
day. The group's dis-
tinctive name, sensuous
appeal, talent and sound
have created "an-out-
so big that a resulting
loyal and hungry nation
wide fan base has
already formed very
quickly. This kind of
phenomenon for a fairly
unknown group is rare
indeed. It is a safe bet
that these ladies \\xll
come out of the gate
They may equal or
exceed the success of
TLC because they are
following in the same
type of path that group
took to become one of
the biggest selling girl
groups of all time. These
ladies have "it" what-
ever "it" is! The trio is
composed of Loui V
(known as "LV"), a 20
year-old Libra who is the
group's leader, rapper,
engineer, writer and pro-
ducer. Next is rapper
"OC", a 21 year-old
Capricorn who is of El
Rounding out the bunch
is the ensemble's singer
Casha, a 20 year -ld
What does the name
"Candy Hill" infer? "LV
responds, "It's because
everybody thinks we're
all sweet and the hill part
is that we are on top of
our game." How did they
come together as a
group? OC says, "I have
been doing music my
whole life. I starting
playing the piano at 2ys
old, then I started to get
into the drums and I
joined a band. I've been
into music every since.
In high school we started
doing these pep .rallies
where we were rapping,
free styling and every-
thing. I met Casha
through a friend at
Southwest High school
and we started a group
together." Casha chimes
in, "We needed another
member so LV and I met
through our ex-
bo\friends. \\e hooked
up. did music together.
and we have been in
recording every since.
"V" learned how to run
pro tools and she records
all of our sessions."
What was the organiz-
ing process like of mak-
ing a demo, taking pho-
tos etc., and getting on
myspace? LV re-joins the
conversation, "The first
thing we started to do
was write songs. We got
tracks from up and com-
ing producers and we
would write to them. A
guy who owned a studio
would let us use it dur-
ing the hours that he
wasn't working like
between 1 and 7: a.m. in
the morning. When he
was finished he would
record us but eventually
he got tired of working

Blues rock group George
Thorogood & The Destroyers,
Blues guitarist/singer Keb'Mo and
bluesman Hubert Sumlin will all be
inducted into the Hollywood
Rockwalk of Fame in June.
Following the induction cere-
monies, the Music Box Fonda
Theater in Hollywood will be the
site of The King of the Blues
Grand Finals. The show will be
hosted by Cheech Marin and will
feature The Black Crows, Hubert
Sumlin, Kenny Wayne Shepherd
plus the top four undiscovered blues
guitar players in the country per-
forming with Grammy Award win-
ner Pete Anderson.
The BrittiCares Charity
Organization will be sponsoring
their 2nd Annual Brittiana Smile
For Life Run/Walk on Saturday,
June 16 starting at the Pacific
School in Manhattan Beach, Calif.
The event will be hosted by
actor/comedian Chris Tucker with
guest co-hosts, the Massey brothers
Kyle (Disney's "That's So Raven"
"Corey In The House"), and Chris
(Nickelodeon's "Zoey 101"). This
charity and event is named after the
late 13yr old black actress,
Brittiana Henderson. We men-
tioned Britt in this column last
January when she made her transi-
tion to our ancestors as a result of a
battle with leukemia.
Former NBA standout Doug
Christie and his wife Jackie will
release their new book on June 1
entitled NO ORDINARY LOVE: A
True Story of Marriage and
Basketball, through their own pub-
lishing company, Infinite Love
Pirates of the Caribbean at
World's End stars Johnny Depp,
Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley,
Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander,
Chow Yun-Fat and Geoffrey Rush.
This is the third installment of the
Disney Pirate saga. It broke the four
day Memorial Day weekend box
office record with a $156 Million
This was a must see film for
those die hard pirate devotees
whether the film was good or
bad. The studio knows this as
well. The adventures start with
the fact that Lord Cutler Beckett
(Hollander) of the East India
Company has gained control of
the terrorizing ghost ship The
Flying Dutchman and now rules
the seas where he can destroy any
pirate ship he chooses at will.
Meantime, Will Turner (Boom),
Elizabeth Swann (Knightly) and
Captain Barbossa (Rush) holds a
meeting with the Nine Lords of
the Brethren to strategize on how
to defeat Lord Beckett. After
which they first travel to
Singapore to meet with Chinese
pirate Captain Sao Feng (Yun-
Fat) to gain charts and a ship that
will take them to the world's end
to rescue Captain Jack Sparrow
(Depp). After they succeed in
retrieving Captain Sparrow, a
plot confusing, double crossing
filled adventure ensues.
.Much of this movie doesn't
make sense and the sub-plots are
hard to follow but that is not the
purpose here. The objective is to
entertain and wow the audience
with spectacular special effects
which this movie does well.
Being a staunch researcher of
black history, I could not help but
wonder how hellish that period
of history was for my ancestors
who were being kidnapped and
tortured as slaves, yet in this
movie a couple of"brothas" were
depicted in the film as equal part-
ners at the roundtable of the Nine
Lords of the Brethren. That was a
bit hard to swallow and the pow-
erful "sistah," Tia Dalma (Harris)
being in an interracial love rela-
tionship with the vengeful
Dutchman Captain Davy Jones.
The lighting was dark which
greatly added to the feel of the
film. This is a good flick to forget
the outside world for a couple of
hours and you can take the chil-

Candy Hill cont'd from D-1
extra hours recording us
because we really didn't
have the money to pay
him. So I learned how to
work Pro Tools. He
would let us have the stu-
dio and we would record
itourselves. We have 30
or 40 songs recorded in
the past four years we've
been together. We hired
a photographer to take
our pictures and we put
our stuff up on myspace
and that's how we got
site caught the attention
of several big name
whom they met with
including industry giant
LA Reid. However, the
L a t i u m
Republic camp out of
Houston, Texas that
brought us Grammy
Award winning and plat-
inum selling superstar
must have had the best
offer because that is the
label in which our ladies
chose to sign.
Who are all of these
fans hitting up their
myspace site? Casha
smiles, "Yeah, we get a
lot of girls and a lot of
guys. We get a mixed
crowd and a lot of differ-
ent nationalities." How
do they describe their
sound? LV adds, "I
would say it is-hip-hop
and R&B because it's
fun, youthful and it's all
personal experiences and
stuff that are pertaining
to our age range. I rap,
OC raps and Casha sings.
It's just a good balance.
It's not too saturated over
one thing. It's different
and unique." Watch for
the Foxy, Candy Hill
