The warm weather of summer is not an
excuse for the amount of crime being expe-
rienced among the young. Police are still
searching for the killers) of a Jacksonville
teen who was shot in the Washington
Heights area while riding a bike Thursday.
S According to witness, after the teen was
Marcus Lane, shot, and had fallen to the ground, the
21 shooters started kicking and beating on him.
He later died and the friend he was riding

with, was not injured.
SOn Tuesday, a 17-year-old Putnam County, Fl resident, Trarelle Mack was counting money for a pizza when his
friend, Zack William Glenn, picked up a gun pretending to rob his friend. According to Glenn, Mack grabbed

With the amount of crime, Sheriff John Rutherford of Jacksonville submitted a letter to Mayor Peyton advising
him that he is unable to cut his budget by the mandated ten percent which is almost $33 million. The Sheriff said
that such a cut would require he reduce the number of officer by 308. The Young Continued on A-7

Attempt Being Made to Qualify

Unqualified Director and Chief of JFRD

According to the Jacksonville Brotherhood of Firefighters, Dan Kleman have the mini-
mum qualifications for fire chief. The organization feels that he does'not have the ability to
insure the safety of firefighters if the city should experience a large scale fire, hazardous
material or medical emergencies. They are also concerned about the City Council's approv-
ing a rewritten, reduced qualification guideline that is not comparable to cities the size and
population of Jacksonville in an effort to guarantee the confirmation of the interim director.
The rewritten document reduced the qualification to a two year degree and five years of
administrative experience in public safety. The Jacksonville Brotherhood of Firefighters feel
that if Interim Director Dan Kleman and Assistant Chief Randy White are appointed,
Jacksonville and its citizens will have a public safety issue.
The organization and several concerned city groups are therefore requesting that the
Council look at the unrewritten qualifications, take a second look at the appointments of
Assistant Chief Randy White and Interim Director Dan Kleman and in using such guidelines,
if it is determined that either or both are not qualified for the positions recommended, that
they be-removed from their respective positions and that a nationwide search be conducted
for persons that have, the appropriate education, training and experience to handle our city.

Jacksonville's own, Officer Kenneth Jefferson
received for the second time, the Florida Law.,
Enforcement Public Information Officer's Associatiof
Award for the Most Outstanding PIO of the Year. He
is the first to receive such an honor, two years in a row.,
The position of PIO requires Jefferson to be on call 24
hours a day, seven days a week so, he recognized and,
thanked his wife for being his beacon, of support. He
said, when the phone rings at 3:00 a.m., it not only
wakes him up, it wakes her up also and he is sincerely:
grateful for her understanding. Office Jefferson said:
he truly enjoys being a part of the Jacksonville
Sheriff's office, which was his childhood dream.'
Congratulations Ken Jefferson!

First African American Inducted Into
Tha Flnridra Prce- Hall Of F ama

After World War II,
Congress passed several
other GI. Bills to provide
educational benefits for vet-
erans returning home from
the Korean War and the
Vietnam War.
Since the Vietnam War,
Congress passed two GI.
Bills that established peace-
time educational benefits for
members of the all volunteer
Armed Services. Although
the current Montgomery GI.
Bill of 1985 provides peace-
time educational benefits,
the current program was not
designed to meet the needs
of our current global situa-
tion a situation in which
several hundred thousand
men and woman in uniform
are fighting in Afghanistan
and Iraq.
Our military operations
inAfghanistan and Iraq have
strained out entire all-volun-
teer military, forcing many
of our Reservist and
National Guard units into
extended tours of duty.
Many of our men and
women in the Army, Air
Force, Navy, and the Marine
Corps have served more
than one.tour of duty in Iraq
and Afghanistan.
With hundreds of thou-
sands of our brave men and

women currently fighting
overseas in Afghanistan and
Iraq, we need a new GI. Bill
to honor these veterans
when they all finally return
home. The Post-9/11
Veterans Educational
Assistance Act of 2007 is
designed to expand the edu-
cational benefits that our
nation offers to our brave
men and womei who have
served us so honorably and
who have sacrificed so
much since the terrorist
attacks of September 11,
The bill that I introduced
is designed to give this gen-
eration, who took it upon
themselves to serve after
9/11, benefits very similar to
those provided to the veter-
ans of World War II.
This bill would specifi-
cally increase educational
benefits to members of the
military who have served at
least two years of active duty
with at least some period of
active duty time served
beginning on or after
September 11, 2001.
Veterans will be eligible
to receive these benefits for
no more than 36 months or
four academic years and
would have 15 years to exer-
cise these benefits. The

House version of this legis-
lation limits benefit pay-
ments to the cost of the most
expensive public institution
in the state in which the vet-
eran is enrolled.
If the veteran chooses to
attend a private institution,
the veteran must pay the dif-
ference between the cost of
the college of his or her
choice and the most expen-
sive public institution of the
state in which the veteran is
enrolled. Like the GI. Bill of
1944, the Post-9/11 GI. bill
will pay for tuition, books,
fees, room and board, and
provide a monthly stipend of
While in law school, I
was privileged to serve' in
the Massachusetts National
Guard and the U.S. Army
Reserves. I fortunately was
never called into active duty,
but the circumstances of our
global situation today have

pulled thousands of Guard
and Reservists out of college
into active duty. I am proud
to represent the Third
Congressional District of
Virginia which is home to
thousands of military per-
sonnel. You cannot go very
far in my district without
running into a military
installation or a member of
our Armed Forces. I see the
sacrifices of our men and
women and their families
each and every day. It is time
that we pass a GI. Bill on the
same scale of the first GI.
Bill that was passed at the
end of World War II to meet
the sacrifices of this genera-
tion. I am, pleased to join
Senator Webb by introduc-
ing the Post-9/llVeterans
Educational Assistance Act
of 2007 in the House and I
encourage my colleagues to
support this important legis-

A Celebration of Excellence and Ethics
The Edward Waters Colleges of Trustees honored
their 27th President Dr. Oswald P. Bronson, Sr. at a
magnificent black tie affair at the downtown Regency

"It was in the evening time when a telephone call
came to my attention with the news that had shaken not
only the Edward Waters family, but Black Colleges and
Universities in general. It was the voice of Bishop
McKinley Young offering Oswald P. Bronson, Sr. an
opportunity to which I could only say 'yes,' provided
the Bethune Cookman College Board of Trustees
would give their approval.
Yes I had retired from the presidency of Bethune
Cookman a position I was blessed to serve for 29
years. However, upon my retirement, I was issued a
consultant contract and felt it expedient to secure
Trustee approval before accepting the offer from
Bishop Young and the Trustees of Edward Waters
College. By My Friends, I Wanted Very Much To
Become The Chief Servant Of This Historic Institution
so much that I prevailed upon the B-CC Trustees to let
me serve EWC Trustees", stated Dr. Oswald P.
Bronson, Sr.
And he served EWC well during his tenure! The
College is fully accredited for the next 15 years. Dr.
Bronson's assessment of the four challenges for EWC
set forth a blueprint for the institution that included:
assuring the faculty and staff of the educational mis-
sions of Edward Waters College; put in place a leader-
ship team that would meet the mandates of the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools; the state
of the faculty'and staff morale and their confidence in
the integrity of administrators; and setting forth the
urgent need to communicate a philosophical thrust that
would inspire the entire college. The Trustees issued a
call for the support of the Double E Principle names
"The Pursuant of Excellence and Ethics in all that we
do. The New EWC is on steady ground for its 28th
President, Dr. Claudette H. Williams.
It was a splendid celebration indeed for a leader that
is loved and respected by ALL!

Georgia City's Experiment

Can Georgia Experiment

Work In Florida's Cities?

Now that the Florida Legislature has car-
ried through on their mandating lower prop-
erty taxes, some local officials are warning
of libraries shutting down, your 911 call
going unanswered, or our local jail turning
inmates loose.
Some of those elected officials should
turn their gaze north, where they could
observe how a Georgia city that demon-
strates how Florida's local governments
might not only survive but could possibly
thrive, with big savings for taxpayers.
Sandy Springs, Georgia is a fast-growing
town of more than 80,000 residents just
North of Atlanta. It is Georgia's sixth largest
city. But what makes Sandy Springs so
unique is that it has only four public
employees who are not involved with public
safety. Except for police and
fire, virtually every govern-
ment function has been con-
tracted out.As Mayor Eva
Galambos Ph.D. says "Our
government is operated prima- :..'
rily by private enterprise i
through a contract with the
City. We have put competition
into the equation of providing
local government services."
In its two years under pri- Signage for th
vate management, Sandy
Springs hasn't needed a tax hike or a fee
increase, the government has become more
responsive, the service quality has
improved, and so has customer satisfaction.
The residents love it.
How could Florida's communities follow
suit? First, they could take a page from man-
agement guru Peter Drucker and require that
every "traditional" service or function prove
that it's a proper role of government.
Second, they could apply to local gov-
ernment Drucker's famous test for business:
"If we weren't doing this yesterday, would
we do it today?" Some services may well be
discontinued rather than contracted out.
Indeed, certain services that some other
cities provide won't necessarily be provided
by Sandy Springs either because they've
outgrown their purpose, they're no longer
effective, or they're outside the proper scope
of government.
Local officials carl determine on a case-

by-case basis whether it makes more sense
for their community to "make" or "buy"
public services. If they decide to buy, there
are numerous functions that are readily
available on the imarkdplacc and could be
easily contracted out to the private sector.
Criticism of the way Florida's state gov-
ernment handled contracts for the outsourc-
ing of selected government services should-
n't deter local officials from experimenting.
At the state level, the problem arguably was-
n't in the game plan but in the execution.
While the Sandy Springs model isn't nec-
essarily a good fit for every city, it does
teach us an important lesson: that "business
as usual" isn't the only operational model for
local governments. Local governments need
not adopt the entire model; rather; they can

ie Sandy Springs City Hall. Estimated cost $195.00

choose some services or entire departments
to outsource to achieve savings.
For too many years local governments
have been on auto-pilot when it comes to
budgeting. They generally tend to spend
more than they did the year before, with lit-
tle real consideration of how sustainable that
spending trend would be over the long term.
The taxpayers have finally said "enough"
and local o\ernmments 'are scrambling to
figure out how to live on less income; some-
thing many of their constituents have
already learned.
By breaking the mold and encouraging
the kind of innovation and creativity that
Sandy Springs exemplifies, Florida's local
governments could become more efficient
and effective.
Locally, rethinking how local govern-
ment operates can be the key to providing
real property-tax relief and better services
for the tax payers.

Man Struck by Lightning While Using Cell Phone During Thunderstorm
Montverde, FL Trevor Duncan, a 19-year-old man who was struck by lightning,

Chip Chenoweth of Lake-Sumter Emergency Medical Services said Duncan was

take him to the hospital because of bad weather, so an ambulance rushed him to South

British Take a Stab at Predicting this Year's Hurricanes
London, UK British forecasters are predicting that the Atlantic hurricane season
may not be as busy as their American counterparts expect. It is most likely that 10 more
tropical storms will form from July to November, the liorlc':r.lcI said. An expected cool-
ing trend in Atlantic Ocean surface waters favors fewer tropical storms than in recent
years, the British meteorologists said in their first-ever hurricane season forecast.
The British scientists did not predict a number of hurricanes ili:il would form or how
many would become strong, as American forecasters do. There is a 70 percent chance
that the number of storms will be in the range of seven to 13, according to the British.
Matt Huddleston at the U.K.'s weather tracking agency within the Ministry of
Defense, said its numbers are based on a "brand new fii c-:i-.l1ii)', system" using a global.
climate model.
In May, U.S. government forecasters predicted 13 to 17 tropical storms in the season
that runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
scientists said they expect seven to 10 tropical storms to become hurricanes and three to
five of them in the strong category.

NAACP Explains Layoffs

Layoffs Not Sign of

Financial Problems
Last weeks announced layoffs at the NAACP headquar-
ters in Baltimore and the possible closing of regional offices
has spurred questions concerning the whether the organiza-
tion has long-term financial problems..
"That is not true at all," Richard McIntire, a spokesman
for the organization, said. "We are right-sizing the organiza-
tion, particularly the national staff, in order to stay financial
According to McIntire there has been no final decision
made in terms of which regional offices will be closed. In
addition to Baltimore, the regional offices are located in St.

"We are planning to re-activate four

Yvonne White Pres Mich. Chapters

The work of the local branches will not be affected, he
"People must remember that we are talking about the
national office when we talk about the staff reduction of 40
people," he said. "Our local branches are mainly where peo-
ple interface with the NAACP and they will continue to
operate the way that they do."
The proposed reduction will drop the national staff from
119 people to 70 through both layoffs and attrition.
Hopefully, McIntire said, those laid off will be able to come
back on in the near future.
Yvonne White, president of the Michigan chapters of the
NAACP, said that expansion will take place in her state.
"We are planning to re-activate four chapters and start
five new chapters here in Michigan," she said. "The
NAACP is stronger than ever."
McIntire disputed claims that the organization has tabled
its move to the District because of the re-organization.
"The board of directors made a-firm commitment to
move the national headquarters to Washington and we have
not wavered from that," he said. "The issue is selling the
property (the national headquarters) we have here in
Baltimore. The cost of moving to D.C. will be from $15-30
million and we have a capital campaign to do that."
McIntire said that the financial problems that the organ-
ization had in the 1990s have been long resolved and it is
operating well.
"We have money in the bank and we are paying our
bills," he said. "But we have to live within our means."
"Everybody has budget cuts," White said. "We have to
learn how to do things differently. But we are alive and well.
We have been around for almost 100 and we will be around
for another 100."

Aspirin May Keep Colon Cancer at Bay

Aspirin can reduce the risk of a common form of colon cancer but not all forms of the
disease, new research suggests.
The study found that regular use of aspirin lowered the risk of colon cancer associated
with expression of the cox-2 enzyme This type of colon cancer accounts for about two-
thirds of the colon cancer cases in the United States, according to the study.
However, the study authors aren't recommending that people start using aspirin for colon
cancer prevention just yet.
"Although studies have been very supportive for the potential benefit of aspirin, it still
remains unclear who stands to benefit the niost." said the study's lead author, Dr. Andrew
Chan, an assistant professor of medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard
Medical School in Boston. "It's important to determine if there are individuals that will ben-
efit significantly enough to outweigh the potential risks of gastrointestinal bleeding."
Part of the problem is that there's currently no way to know who's at risk for cox-2-
expressing colon cancers, and aspirin had little effect on colon cancers that didn't express the
cox-2 enzyme. That means that for about one-third of people with colon cancer, aspirin
wouldn't help to prevent the disease and could cause unnecessary side effects.

when Samuel Comish and John Russwurm
founded the Freedom's Journal, America's
first Black newspaper, Black people were
still in slavery.
It was that publication, Frederick
Douglass' North Star, and the hundreds that
came after them that led the way to freedom
and citizenship for Black people in America.
Through the "Double V" campaign of World
War II that fought the battle against racism
at home and fascism abroad, to lynching and
Jim Crow, Black reporters, who could not
work in White news rooms, dedicated them-
selves to groundbreaking stories that
impacted public policies for Black progress.
The stories also put White segregationist
newspapers to shame.
Eventually, during the civil rights move-
ment, White-owned newspapers opened
their doors for African-Americans. The did
it in part because they needed the per-
spective of Black writers and their sources in
the Black community in order to report sto-
ries of injustices with any semblance of

Fellowship", a
partnership between the Department of

young journalists are preparing to carry the

"I was interested in writing stories for an
audience that I cared about. I really believe
in the power of the media and I found, when
looking at my options, that this medium
would help me do that more than any," says
Shari Logan of Brooklyn New York. "A lot
of people, when they looked at my resume,
they were surprised that I didn't seek a job at
the other publications that I'd interned for.
But, the things that I wrote about weren't
necessarily going to keep me excited
throughout the year. I thought about that and
this fellowship just sort of came right on
time and I said, 'Okay, this is more like a
better fit.'"
As part of the fellowship, Logan, Heather
Faison, Amber English and Brandon
Holmes, all of whom graduated from
Howard in May, have completed four weeks
of training at the NNPA News Service. The
training, funded by the Ford Foundation,
aimed to prepare the graduates to work for
the next two years at several of NNPA's
member newspapers.
The NNPA training included lectures and
seminars by journalists and other media pro-
fessionals, visits to congressional offices,
and weekly deadlines in the NNPA news-
Logan will be working for the Houston
Defender. She says her initial inspiration to
apply for the fellowship came from Howard
communications professor Dr. Clint Wilson,
who teaches a course on multi-cultural
"Dr. Wilson talked about the first Black
publishers and how they wrote, "We have to
plead our own cause" and I was like, 'Wow.
That's very, very powerful even today in
Heather Faison, who will be going to the
Philadelphia Tribune, also took Wilson's
class She says she became interested in the
fellowship when he first conceived and
announced it, but she was especially
, intrigued by the educational benefits of start-
ing her career in the Black Press.
"What really sealed the deal was an arti-
cle that I read, an interview with Milton
Coleman with the Washington Post and how
he started out in the Black Press," says
Faison of Raleigh, N.C. "He felt that it was
a teaching experience for him and a lot of
what he knows now he credits to the Black
Press. I got an opportunity to speak with him
a couple of days after I read that. He really

solidified and really encouraged me to go
into the Black Press."

Wilson, the author of "A History of the
Black Press," says he applied for the fellow-
ship grant, not only to open opportunities for
the graduates, but in order to infuse fresh
perspectives into the Black Press.
"I think that the Black Press is at least as
important as it has always been. I sense that
in recent years our young people have not,
been exposed to it. And opportunities to'
work in the White Press far overshadow the
Black Press; so our best talent is being'
recruited by the White Press," Wilson says..
"Also, people are starving for information,
that is vital to them."
Wilson says the Black Press is also an
outlet for young people to use their artistic

find rap music or spoken word as a venue of;
expression, the Black Press is another way
of expressing the mind of the Black commu-

Johnnie Johnson's

Minnie Riperton is best
known for her rare, five-
octave vocal register that
reached into what profes-
sional musicians call "the
whistle range." With the
release of her 1974 "Perfect
Angel" album, many
assumed hers was a story-
book discovery of which
Hollywood films are made.
Mahaila Jackson became a
leading singer in Gospel
music, known for her rich,
powerful voice. A devout

Baptist, she still found time
for secular sounds of such
blues artists as Bessie Smith
and Ma Rainey. Mahalia
Jackson became an active
supporter of the civil rights
movement in the 1960s. She
sang at the March on
Washington at the request of
her friend Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. in 1963. After
King's death in 1968,
Jackson sang at his funeral
and largely withdrew from
public political activities.
Chuck Berry with his wild
and crazy style touched
many. Born Charles Edward
Anderson Berry on October
18, 1926 in St Louis,
Missouri. As a singer-gui-
tarist who drew from blues,
rockabilly, and country-and-
western styles, and wrote

Louis, IL, before launching
his career with Chess
Records in Chicago (1955).
With hit songs such as
'School Days', 'Rock and
Roll Music', -'Johnny B
Goode', and 'My Ding A
Ling', he appealed to
teenagers of all races. In
1986 he became an inaugu-
ral member of the Rock 'n'
Roll Hall of Fame. Ella
Fitzgerald was also a song
bird that touched the hearts
of many, she turned to
singing and debuted at the
Apollo Theater in 1934 at
age 17. She was discovered
in an amateur contest in'

Harlem and joined Chick
Webb's band and recorded
several hits, notably "A-
tisket A-tasket" (1938).
After Webb died in 1939,
his band was renamed Ella
Fitzgerald and her Famous
Orchestra. Two years later,
she began her solo career
and by the mid-1950s, she
had become the first
African-American to per-
form at the Mocambo. Her
lucid intonation and broad

range made her a top jazz
Billie Holiday was jazz in
itself. Known for her dis-
tinctive phrasing and soul-
ful, soft, yet strong voice ,
Holiday went on to record
with jazz pianist Teddy
Wilson and. his orchestra in
1935. 'Holiday, born
Eleanora Fagan, began
singing in local clubs and
renamed herself "Billie"
after the film star Billie
Dove. Producer John
Hammond reportedly dis-
covered her while she was
performing in a Harlem jazz
club in 1933. That year,
Hammond helped land

Holiday recording work
with bandleader Benny
Goodman. She -also met
saxophonist Lester Young
around this time and he was
the one who gave her the
nickname "Lady Day." She
also worked with the Count
Basie Orchestra in the late
1930s. Holiday recorded
two of her most well-
regarded songs during this
period: her own composi-
tion "God Bless the Child"
(1939) and "Strange Fruit"
(1939), a powerful story
about the lynching of
African Americans in the
South. She signed with
Decca Records in 1944 and
scores an R&B hit the next
year with "Lover
Man."Considered one of the
best jazz vocalists of all
time, Holiday has been an
influence on many other
performers who have fol-

low ed in her footsteps.
Miles Davis was at the fore-
front of jazz, developing or
advancing several signifi-
cant and contrasting styles
and trends, all of which
highlighted his intensely
personal sensibilities. These
included cool jazz, hard
bop, modal jazz, fusion, and

several innovative orches-
tral collaborations with Gil
Evans. As a bandleader, he
was a discerning recruiter of
new talent, including John
Coltrane, Bill Evans, and
Herbie Hancock. Davis was
widely admired for his cool
demeanor and sartorial ele-
gance. Jimi Hendricks
could make a lead guitar
talk. Hendrix pursued his
music, working as a session
musician and playing back-
up for such performers as
Little Richard, Sam Cooke,

and the Isley Brothers. He

Should I Have A Student Credit Card? I 1

All About Student
Credit Cards
By Morgan Hamilton

Student .credit cards are
regular credit cards that are
offered especially for stu-
dents. The idea behind
them are to help students
establish credit. There are
advantages to getting a stu-
dent credit cards, but
before you can benefit
from them you should
understand -what credit
cards are all about.
A credit card is simply a
loan. The credit card com-
pany offers you a line of
credit and as you make
purchases on your credit
card they pay for them.
You then pay back the
credit card company.
Credit cards carry fees and
interest that you must also
pay back. Student credit
cards are often easier to get

than a regular card because
the company knows you
have a limited budget and
will issue you a lower
credit limit that will allow
you to build credit without
getting into serious debt.

Credit cards are a privi-
lege that offers many
advantages. Having a stu-
dent credit card allows you
to pay bills and make pur-
chases online or over the
telephone with great con-
venience. There is also
buyers protection to help
against theft. A credit card
gives you funds in an
emergency and allow you
to avoid carrying cash or
checks. The credit card
company keeps tracks of
purchases for you without
having to balance or record
like a check book. Credit
cards make large purchases

easier, too. The main idea
behind credit cards,
though, is they help you to
establish credit.
Establishing credit by
using a student credit card
is a great way to prepare
for the future. Credit is
important to every aspect
of life, from buying a home
to getting a job. Building a
good credit history will
allow you to get a loan and
will help you to avoid
many problems people
with bad or no credit face.
Good credit means you
have access to money if an
emergency or need arises.
Student credit cards are a
great first step to securing
your financial future.

What To Look For
When looking at offers
for student credit cards it is
a good idea to compare
them. You should look at

the fees and APR, which is
the interest rate you will
have to pay on purchases.
You should also look at
other things like the grace
period, which is the
amount of time you have to
pay your bill -before inter-
est is charged. Shopping
around will help you get
the most out of your stu-
dent credit card.
Once you decide to get
a student credit card it is
important to understand
how it works and the
advantages. You should
find the card- that works
best for you. It is also a
good idea to use your card
wisely, pay the bills on
time and keep within your
credit limit. Student credit
cards offer lots of advan-
tages for students looking
to build credit.

His reign as King of the
Blues has been as long as
that of any monarch on
earth. Yet B.B. King contin-
ues to wear his crown well.
At age 76, he is still light on
his feet, singing and playing
the blues with relentless
passion. Time has no appar-
ent effect on B.B., other
than to make him more.pop-.

E music he plays,
and a grateful
world can't get
enough of him.
For more than half a
century, Riley B. King bet-
ter known as B.B. King -
has defined the blues for a
worldwide audience. Since
he started recording in the
1940s, he has released over
fifty albums, many of them
classics. He was born
September 16, 1925, on, a

plantation in Itta Bena,
Mississippi, near Indianola.
In his youth, he played on
street corners for dimes, and
would sometimes play in as
many as four towns a night.
In 1947, he hitchhiked to
Memphis, TN, to pursue his
music career. Memphis was
where every important
musician of the South grav-
itated, and which supported
a large musical community
where every style of African
American music could be
found. B.B. stayed with his
cousin Bukka White, one of
the most celebrated blues
performers of his time, who
schooled B.B. further in the
art of the blues.
B.B.'s first big break
came in 1948 when he per-
formed on Sonny Boy
Williamson's radio program
on KWEM out of West
Memphis. This led to steady
engagements at the
Sixteenth Avenue Grill in
West Memphis, and later to

Sa ten-minute spot
on black-staffed
and managed
Memphis radio sta-
tion WDIA.
"King's Spot," became so
popular, it was expanded
and became the "Sepia
Swing Club." Soon B.B.
needed a catchy radio name.
What started out as Beale
Street Blues Boy was short-
ened to Blues Boy King,
and eventually B.B. King.
In the mid-1950s, while
B.B. was performing at a
dance in Twist, Arkansas, a
few fans became unruly.
Two men got into a fight
and knocked over a
kerosene stove, setting fire
to the hall. B.B. raced out-
doors to safety with every-
one else; then realized that
he left his beloved $30
acoustic guitar inside, so he
rushed back inside the burn-
ing building to retrieve it,
narrowly escaping death.
When he later found out that
the fight had been over a
woman named Lucille, he
decided to give the name to
his guitar to remind him

never to do a crazy thing
like fight over a woman.
Ever since, each one of
B.B.'s trademark Gibson
guitars has been called
B.B. continues to tour
extensively, averaging over
250 concerts per year
around the world. Classics
such as "Payin' The Cost To
Be The Boss," "The Thrill Is
Gone," How Blue Can You
Get," "Everyday I Have The
Blues," and "Why I Sing
The Blues" are concert (and
fan) staples. Over the years,
the Grammy Award-winner
has had two #1 R&B hits,
1951's "Three O'Clock
Blues," and 1952's "You
Don't Know Me," and four
#2 R&B hits, 1953's "Please
Love Me," 1954's "You
Upset Me Baby," 1960's
"Sweet Sixteen, Part I," and
1966's "Don't Answer The
Door, Part I." B.B.'s most
popular crossover hit,
1970's "The Thrill Is Gone,"
went to #15 pop.

Lady of Gospel

By the time she was ten
years old, Shirley Caesar
had already made a name
for herself. The tiny singer
in pigtails and bobby socks
was known throughout the
Carolinas and Virginia as
"Baby Shirley," and her
foot-stomping, bring-
down-the-house style was
in demand for church serv-
ices and revivals.
To date, Shirley Caesar
has had an astonishing
career spanning four

Melody, and the Word is
Shirley's own story of those
years, told in her intimate
and passionate style.
Overall, Caesar takes
her listeners on a joyous
ride showing versatility
while her usual energy
uplifts and encourages.
Earning numerous

accolades, including 11

an induction into the
Gospel Music Hall of
SFame, and recently honored
at Oprah Winfrey's
Legend's Ball for her con-
tributions to the arts and
entertainment, Caesar has
surpassed her wildest
She has successfully
recorded forty albums and
performed duets with
extraordinary vocalists as
Patti Labelle, Gladys
Knight, Faith Evans and
Destiny's Child Michelle
Williams enabling her to
effectively bridge the gap*
between R&B and Gospel
Indeed a living legend,

notable appearances
including a series of com-
mercials for MCI

Gospel According to VH-1,
a White House perform-
ance for George Bush, and
a speech on the Evolution

Family Reunions
Turn a Famniv Reunion
into an Ainmazing Tirr'el

The old-fashioned family
reunion in grannda's back-
yard is so last summer. The
destination family reunion
allows everyone to get
together, while also enjoying
a fun trip
There are many reasns
to consider a destination fam-
ily reunion. They are espe-
crally appealing if family is
already spread around the
country or globe anyway.
They provide a unique oppor-
tunity for several family
members to bond while
learning and experiencing
new places.
They don't have to be
exotic or expensive. Here, re
some ideas for planning a
destination family reunion
Keep it simple
There's no need for a
pricy trip to a faraway land
staying in expensi- e hotel
rooms. Family reunion goers
have one distinct advantage:
a quantity of people. This
means several people can
share a vacation beach house.
or you can get a olume dis-
count for a family cruse.
Several hotels do offer dis-
counts as well.
Pick the right spot
Think carefully before
choosing the destination. If
people are spread out or e\ en
in the same region, rry to find
a central location so no one
family feels slighted.
Also consider destina-
tions that have a special
meaning for the family. Did
the grandparents immigrate
fior? Have a reunion in their
hometown, and learn mire
about the family history
Look for fun destinations
OK. the kids won't exact-
ly get nuts over a really bor-
ing destination. That's a fact.
Try to find destinations that
have something for every-
one: cool kid activities, plus
great museums and art gal-
leres. shopping options and
sporting events.

Green Cove City Manager to be Investigated
Green Cove Springs, FL -The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement will investigate complaints of elec-

Springs following a review by the state.
Manager Don Bowles has voted in two municipal
elections since gaining the post in 1999, according to the
Clay County supervisor of elections, despite having a
homestead-exempt property on Wilkies Point Road in
unincorporated Clay County.
The Green Cove Springs charter requires the manager
live within its limits and no one who lives outside those
boundaries is legally allowed to vote in city elections.

In a move that underscores his commit-

Charlie Crist has created a nine-member
Commission on Open Government Reform.
The commission will be responsible for

Crist, who has burnished his govern-
ment-in-the-sunshine credentials repeat-
edly in office, said the panel stocked with
top administration, media and legislative
officials would have broad authority to
explore where one of the country's
strongest open government laws could
use tweaking.
Putting limitations on it would be
counter-productive," Crist said a Tuesday
press conference.
The panel will hold at least three pub-
lic hearings around the state beginning in
Tallahassee in August and produce a final
report for the Legislature and governor
next year.
"It's important (they) have the oppor-
tunity to review whatever they deem
important and whatever they hear from
the people is important," Crist said.
When quizzed by a reporter, Crist listed
the Florida Clemency Board he sits on as
one place where work is still held in secrecy,
and a body where he thinks reform could be
examined. Earlier this year, Crist pushed
through a major reform of Florida's Jim
Crow-era clemency rules that is expected to
clear the way for hundreds of thousands of
felons to regain their voting rights.
Crist was also asked repeatedly about the
Florida Legislature's just-completed proper-

on what could amount to Florida's largest-
ever tax cut was privately negotiated by leg-
islative leaders.

Dear Deanna!
I'm stuck in a dead end relationship in a dead town. I
just graduated from high school and I am dating an older
man. I am feeling the urge to get away but I feel guilty. I
want to achieve things, see other people and have a better
life. He's trying to brainwash me and make me think I'm
dumb, and can't make it without him. I want to get away
but he has me limited because I can't drive, have no skills
and no friends. How do I make things happen for myself?
Anonymous (On-line Reader)
Dear Anonymous:
Your old man has watched his life pass by and he's a loser and will pull you into
the same hole. Your life is just beginning and you need to get some job skills, educa-
tion and treat yourself to the finer things in life. You don't need a man holding you
down or telling you what you can't do. You can do anything if you believe in yourself.
When you get tired of your dead end situation, empty your bank account and take a leap
of faith and just get up and leave.

Dear Deanna!
My girlfriend of two years destroyed me. I learned that the entire time we were dat-
ing she was seeing someone else. For a year she has been trying to pressure me into
marriage but I wasn't ready. She ended her relationship with me and a few weeks later
announced she was getting married. I see the things she wanted and I'm willing to look
like a fool to get her back. She tells me that I blew my chances. I feel desperate and
want to know is there anything I can do to get her back?
Sean (Memphis, TN)
Dear Sean:
Instead of being a pathetic beggar open your eyes and see that your girlfriend was
a cheating two-timer. She played games with two men and chose the one that would
marry her. You can look like a fool if you want but if she cheated on you with another
man once, she'll do it again but next time things may be worse. You shouldn't allow a
woman to have this kind of power. Get yourself together, hold your head up and work
through your pain and wait for the lady that's meant for you.

Dear Deanna!
My best friend is in an abusive relationship. I see the bruises and hear the pain and
torment in her voice. I want to help her but she always denies the problems. I saw her
recently and one of her front teeth was gone. She claimed she had an accident on the
stairs but I know otherwise. I'm ready to tell her family but I'm afraid because her
father is crazy and may do something harmful. How can I help a friend in this horrible
Worried Friend (Milwaukee, WI)
Dear Worried Friend:
You need to tell your friends family as: soon as you can. Yes, fathers go crazy and
if a man is beating his daughter he needs to be dealt with. If something deadly happens
to your friend you will have blood on your hands too because you knew and didn't try
to help. Give your friend some referrals to a few domestic abuse sources so she can rec-
ognize that this relationship isn't healthy. In the meanwhile, join forces with the fami-
ly and support and help her get out of this relationship before it's too late.

'Segregated' Schools Hinder Reading Skills

CHAPEL HILL -Children in families with low incomes, who attend schools
where the minority population exceeds 75 percent of the student enrollment,
under-perform in reading, even after accounting for the quality of the literacy
instruction, literary experiences at home, gender, race and other variables,
according to a new study.
The majority of black and Hispanic children in the United States attend such
"minority segregated" schools, according to the National Center for Education
The study, by the FPG Child Development Institute (FPG) and the School of
Education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, examined reading
development from kindergarten to third grade for 1,913 economically disadvan-
taged children. The children were part of the Children from Early Childhood
Longitudinal Study Kindergarten Cohort, a nationally representative sample of
more than 22,000 children enrolled in approximately 1,000 kindergarten pro-
"Good instruction is essential, but it's not enough," said Kirsten Kainz, an
investigator at FPG, senior research associate in the School of Education and
author of the study.
"Most current reading instruction initiatives and policies are aimed at
improving classroom instruction," Kainz said. "This research shows that charac-
teristics of the child, the home, the classroom and the school influence reading
development, and that maximally effective reading policy should address all four
systems simultaneously."
Kainz and her colleagues found that classroom and school characteristics had
a larger affect on low-income students' long-term reading abilities than the
method of instruction or a child's background, such as the parents' employment
patterns or size of the household.

The study also showed that the percentage of struggling readers in a class-
room negatively influenced every student's reading performance, erasing any
benefits of comprehensive literacy instruction. Children attending kindergarten
classrooms with higher percentages of students reading below grade level
demonstrated constrained performance in reading at the end of kindergarten. The
same was true for children in first grade.
Children were assessed in basic reading skills, vocabulary and comprehen-
sion. Researchers then considered how four levels of variables child, family,
classroom and school affected reading skills. Data was collected as part of a
national survey via telephone interviews and written questionnaires with care-
givers, teachers and administrators.,

New York on Sept. 17, 1911. and arrived in California on Dec.
10. 1911. in a biplane called the "Vin Fiz." which h looked very '
similar to the rickety wood-frame and fabric plane of the
\\right Brothers. Rodgers, sitting on the front with no protec-
tion or even a helmet, made it in 84 days with five major crashes and two engine explosions
along the way. A childhood bout with scarlet fever had left the young aviator deaf. What
rationale, in its proper place, would think you need to hear to fly?
The building of the Hoover Dam has always been a study of serious intrigue to me. I have
been to visit the final project several times. I still stand in wonderment. The endless questions
still linger. There is a list of the lives lost carved on a marble slab, but was there anxiety, hes-
itation, cold feet, terror?
Some research revealed that there was a group of adventurers called "high scalers," who
had nerves of steel and were paid 75 cents an hour vs. the 50 cents an hour paid to regular
Hoover Dam workers. There were no hard hats, no safety nets, no OSHA controls during this
period in our history. The high scalers were former sailors, Native Americans who lived in
harsh terrain, and circus acrobats. Of course, these men were selected for their proven
courage, agility, delights of heights, not to mention their physiques. I wonder, were these
individuals driven by a higher octane rush of adrenaline?
I attended the funeral of an African-American centenarian. The family had many famous
stories about her life, among which was a story of Bonnie and Clyde, the notorious duo, being
guests in her home. The underlying thought was that the officers would not be looking for
two white people in the home of a black family. However, the thought does not escape the
amount of faith required to be a cordial hostess to known offenders'. Can fear also be
unspeakable strength?
Throughout history we have been amazed, dazzled and in awe at the daredevils, their
enthusiasm and taunting efforts to be the "best." Jumping through fire, crashing cars, best
fight, legal racing. The World Stunt Awards one year went to a man and woman who, hands
cupped together, jumped out of a fifth-floor window. The Ozark Mountain daredevils are a
constant conversation piece.
Pilots are the most particularly competitive group, the stunt community creates the action
we required in movies, tornado chasers are truly misunderstood and the good-looking lion
tamer the cutest and bravest. The motorcycle stunt shows make your heart skip a beat. The
Blue Angels and Skycoasters have your nerves doing the tango. But we go to watch anyway.
Is it the thrill of it all that fascinates us?
Gov. Schwarzenegger's real claim to fame was his contribution to the explosive action in
his movies. (Speaking of movies, let me surely not forget the film crews, who are the mas-
ters behind the scenes.) Evel Knievel wore us all out with his highly publicized stunts and
broken bones routine.
We could not get enough of Erik Weihenmayer, the one and only blind man who ventured
up Mount Everest, a mountain he could not see. All of these headliners feed the public's eager
interest and quest for "I-saw-it-but-I-don't-believe-it" outcry. But again, do we consider them
bold, daring, half-baked, desperate, thrill-crazed or what?
In our daily lives, we see many, many examples of the fearless and their faith. The fear-
less live up to the true meaning of faith, which is daring the soul to go beyond what the eyes
can see. Faith is not rocket science, brain surgery or a library of books analyzing how to get
Worry looks around. Sorry looks back. Faith looks up. What's your pleasure?

Adults Have Power to Close Black-
White Reading Gap

By: Tonvaa Weathersbee. BlackAmencaWeb.com "
I" ith perrniiss~ion

If hen I w'as a child, I never read books like "A-mazing Grace"
Or ",lufaro 's Beautiful Daughters."

It wasn't because mN mother an elementary school teacher -
didn't want me to. Oh no. Almost from the time that I \vas able to
hold a cup and a baby spoon \\ith myfat little finger, she stuck
books in front of me as well. First it was the picture books, then the books with big letters. Once
I entered first grade in 1965, those baby books were replaced with the Alice and Jerry readers.
All those books, with their idyllic portrayals of nature, fairy tale characters and everyday antics
of blond, Beaver Cleaver-era white kids filled my imagination and showed me that this read-
ing thing was a big deal. What they didn't show me, however, was where children and people
who looked like me fit in with that lily-white world.
Books like "Amazing Grace," the 1991 children's book of how a black girl proves she can
be the best Peter Pan ever in a play even though her classmates say she can't do it because she's
black and female, weren't around back when my mother was buying me books. Neither was the
book "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters," a 1988 book that, through its pictures of women with
clear African features, depicts the,story of two sisters who go before a king who is choosing a
But such culturally relevant children's books books that throw the cloak of invisibility off
of the experience and culture of black people are around now. And more are being published
all the time. Which is why a recent story in The Christian Science Monitor gave me reason to
celebrate and to sigh.
According to the Monitor, the explosion of multicultural children's books in the early 1990s
is still making a huge impact with black families. At Hue-Man Bookstore, a black bookstore in
Harlem, for example, children's books account for 30 percent of the sales of the 16,000 titles
that it stocks. That's good news.
But what's frustrating is that even though anecdotal evidence suggests that such books may
inspire more black children to read, that trend needs to pick up steam more quickly to begin to
close the reading gap that exists between black and white children. And the gap is stark.
The National Assessment of Educational Progress reported that just 12 percent of black
fourth-graders were reading at grade level in 2000, compared to 40 percent of white fourth-
And recent studies done by the National Center for Educational Statistics found large
achievement gaps between black and white children as early as kindergarten. For example, the
center's studies showed that in 2002, 73 percent of white kindergartners were proficient in let-
ter recognition, compared to 59 percent of black kindergartners. Similar differences existed for
recognition of words' beginning and ending sounds, and for print familiarity.
But the studies also keyed in on a significant point that achievement tests don't measure
literacy skills acquired outside of the classroom, and that an appropriate response to enhance
reading skills is to match children's learning capabilities and needs with the most appropriate
That's important. And that's where children's books especially those written by black
authors can play a vital role. For example, a 1988 book entitled "Baby Says," by black author
John ,Steptoe, uses only baby words to depict the relationship between a toddler and his older

And while baby words might not be the vocabulary that one ultimately wants a black child
to stick with, it at least takes the mystery and fear out of reading for many black children who,
because of cultural and economic reasons, have to look after younger siblings at earlier ages.
That's the hopeful part about all this; that while the reading gap still exists, it is within the
power of black parents and black communities to close it by exposing their children to books
that celebrate and recognize their existence. The books are there. And if many parents just heed
Bill Cosby's advice to forgo buying the Nikes in favor of "Hooked on Phonics," in time we can
close this reading gap.
The lack of culturally relevant books didn't hurt me much when I was child because my
mother was skilled enough to put the world in context for me. So I learned how to read by mak-
ing do with the stuff that I had. Nowadays, black parents have more material to work with.
And fewer excuses.

URGENT! Federal Abstinence Funding Will End June 30th!
Money allocated for abstinence funding will shift to comprehensive sex education
Jacksonville, FL- Based upon a recent Health and Human Service (HHS) report, the shift
of abstinence funding to comprehensive sex education funding is the worst possible thing for
the youth of Northeast Florida.
Project SOS will lose much needed funding that will eliminate their much needed services
in several schools in the Northeast Florida area. Since 1993, Project SOS has taught teenagers
S skills that help them set boundaries, use refusal skills, set goals, communicate with parents,
and avoid high risk behaviors. In fact, since federal abstinence funding was made available to
Project SOS, the teen birth rate in Northeast Florida has decreased 55%! Are parents really
ready to turn the health education of their student over to comprehensive sex educators?
Parents need to know that what is called "comprehensive" is really anything but.
According to the HHS report, startling components of the "comprehensive" sex education pro-
grams for teens as young as 13 include lessons include:
Advocating showering together as a no risk activity.
Promoting methods for sexual stimulation.
Conducting sexual role-play on how to help a partner maintain an erection.
Describing how to eroticize condom use with a partner.
Suggesting teens wear shades or a disguises when shopping for condoms so adults and
parents won't recognize them.
Parents communicated their strong support for abstinence education, as currently fund-
ed by Congress, in a recent 2007 Zogby poll. In fact, regardless of ideological leaning, par-
ents from across America supported abstinence education over 'comprehensive' sex education
by a 2:1 margin. The very topics that parents wanted curricula to cover are absent in most
'comprehensive' sex education."
Parents need to know who is teaching their students and what their students are being
taught. Comprehensive sex education teaches little about abstinence (risk prevention) and
focuses heavily on condom usage (risk reduction) and ways to engage in sexual behavior.
Project SOS is encouraging 10,000 parents to contact their elected official and demand that
abstinence funding not be cut!

Non-Binding Interim Resolution Passed

Arkansas Joins Southern

States in Slavery Apology

Less than two weeks after Arkansas
Governor Mike Beebe questioned an effort
to have Arkansas join other states in apolo-
gizing for its role in slavery, an Arkansas
legislative panel passed a resolution Friday
expressing "profound regret" for the state's
role in slavery, following the lead of other
Southern states that have issued similar
Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina and
Virginia have issued slavery apologies.
Some Arkansas lawmakers say the 50th
anniversary of integration in Little Rock's
Central High School on Sept. 25 would be
an appropriate time for Arkansas' own leg-
islative resolution or a statement of regret
from the governor.
The Arkansas Legislative Council, the
group that oversees legislative matters
between sessions, approved the interim res-
olution asking forgiveness for the "wrongs
inflicted by slavery and its after-effects." A
black state legislator called the resolution a
The non-binding resolution does not
require Gov. Mike Beebe's signature, legis-
lators said.
"The Legislative Council expresses its
deepest sympathies and solemn regrets to
those who were enslaved and those descen-
dants of slaves, who were deprived of life,
human dignity, and the constitutional pro-
tections accorded all citizens of the United
States," the resolution said.
"The last thing I want to see is for my

children to have textbooks say that all
southern states that played in a role in slav-
ery apologized except for Arkansas," said
Rep. Steve Harrelson, a co-sponsor of the
Black lawmakers have debated whether
it would be appropriate for the state to fol-
low suit with similar apologies, and Beebe
has said he didn't know if such an apology
was necessary.
"I think Arkansas probably has as good a
feel for folks working together as any
Southern state or any other state, so I think
we've moved past that," Beebe told The
Associated Press earlier month.
Asked whether he would sign an apolo-
gy if legislators approved one, the governor
said, "I'd have to deal with it then."
"I think the next step is to look at how
we reconcile the vestiges of slavery with
where our hearts and minds are today in
terms of the issues related to racism, to
poverty, to de facto segregation. housing
and all of the other social issues we say
we're concerned about," said Hank Wilkins
IV, co-chairman of the council, who is
Rep. Stephanie Flowers, who is black,
said she viewed the apology as a "mockery"
because it was merely symbolic and doesn't
address current inequality.
"We' e still got so much discrimination
in this state and this country and umnil these
whites admit it and deal with it it doesn't do
anything," said Flowers, D-Pine Bluff.

Not unlike Jacksonville

Angel Cabrera
Let me get this straight up front, I am a Tiger Woods
man. Cut my finger on any Sunday afternoon and I will
bleed Tiger Red until the last putt of the day!
Having said that, there is no doubt about it, after
every major Tournament we have an obsession with
looking back at Sunday's final round using Tiger Woods
as our frame of reference. Tiger is the Gold Standard
when it comes to golf.
But every once in a while we have to look the facts
straight in the eye and agree with the observations of the
guy who actually won the whole bag of marbles.
Angel Cabrera knew he was playing the guy two
holes back on Sunday and he remembered the
Wentworth last month when his nerves fell apart and fie
hit several crap shots that cost him the tournament.
But this US Open belonged to the El Pato the
Duck. Argentina's pride and joy.
And for the record, the world's No1 has held the lead
on the final day in the last two majors, the US Open and
at Augusta, and failed to win either. Big deal.
.Or as Cabrera put it far more eloquently when asked
what it was like to beat Tiger Woods: "No, No, No," he
said. "I beat Everybody, not only him.."
A few side notes to Cabrera's win, I expect that 15
other golfers including Phil Mickelson will proba-
bly remember his performance.
That would be the group that missed the cut when
Cabrera's birdie on eighteen Friday moved the cut from
+11 to +10..
There were 454 rounds of golf played at Oakmont. Of
those 454. only eight were below par. Of those eight, an
Argentenian named Angel Cabrera had two!
Does all that change my opinion of Tiger Woods? Of
course not but it does change my opinion of Angels
Sam Woods
While he didn't take home a trophy from Oakmont,
Tiger will be taking one home this week.
Monday, less than 24-hours after the Tiger-Angel
drama ended, Sam Alexis Woods joined the Woods fam-
ily. The baby girl and mother are both doing fine accord-
ing to the proud father.
When asked how his game would be effected by
fatherhood, Tiger answered "I don't really know. ..
because I've never gone through it before."
Tiger, let me tell you something, your golf game is
not the only thing that is going to change in your life.
Congratulations to Elin and Tiger Woods.

Gators & Noles Visit White

House for Champions Day

The Gators National Championship Basketball team and
FSU's National Championship Track team visited the White
House Monday as part of the President's Champions' Day.
The two were among the 21 college athletic teams recog-
nized Monday as NCAA champions. The students, repre-
senting 14 states, included victorious baseball and basket-
ball teams, champion bowlers, gymnasts, fencers and
"I appreciate being with good athletes, good students,
good leaders. That's what it takes to become a champion,"'
Bush told the students sitting before him.
But the president also took a friendly jab at some of the
teams' unusual mascots.
"There's Tigers and Badgers. Huskers and Anteaters,'" .
.he said, in a nod to the University of California Irvine base-
hall team. "'Go Anteaters! Fight Anteaters!"'
Florida State
It didn't even matter that President Bush mentioned that
"other" Florida team first for winning back-to-back men's
basketball titles.
In his first visit to Washington, Greg Bolden not only got
to visit the White House, but he also met the president. He
then walked out with him to the South Lawn as his Florida
State track team basked in national attention.
SThen, with the mention of Florida State, a segment of the
White House lawn responded with war chants and toma-
hawk chops.
"We had a lot of people out there cheering for us. It
always feels good when you hear them call you back-to-
back champs," said Bolden, 22, who stood behind the pres-
ident, along with the other team captains.
"Everything was just a good experience."

he enjoyed the White House tour, 'although it wasn't as

Kobe Airs His Dissatisfaction

With Lakers on His Web Site
Kobe Bryant earned $17.72 million last season and will
earn $88.6 million over the next four years. He is considered
one of the NBA's most dominant players and a top draw at
the Staples Center. But, Bryant last month voiced frustration
at Lakers management and publicly requested he be traded
after the team was eliminated by Phoenix in the first round
of the playoffs.
The 28-year-old nine-time All Star has four years left on
his contract, but can terminate it following the 2008-09 sea-
Bryant last month voiced frustration at Lakers manage-
ment and publicly requested he be traded after the team was
eliminated by Phoenix in the first round of the playoffs.
Though he said nothing could change his mind, Bryant
later backed off after speaking with coach Phil Jackson.
"I don't want to go anywhere this is nly team," Bryant
told KLAC radio at the time. "I love it here. I called Phil,
man. He and I talked; it,was an emotional conversation. But
he just said, 'You know what, Kobe? Let us try to figure this
thing out."
But the second delivery of the message is a reassertion
on Bryant's part that he remains unhappy with the franchise.
Bryant wrote that the Lakers, owned by Jerry Buss, had not
backed, him with players the team needs to win champi-
"The Lakers are pursuing a longer-term plan that is dif-
ferent from what Dr. Buss shared .vith me at the time I re-
signed as a free agent," he wrote. "I have seen that plan
unfold for the last three years and watched great trade
opportunities come and go, and have seen free agents passed
on. That has led to the Lakers not winning a playoff series."

Here are some tips for keeping your home safe while you're away ;'
1. Display alarm stickers or signs where they can't be missed "'~
An alarm is a very real deterrent for burglars.
2. Create the illusion that you are home by putting lights on timers and asking a neighbor to
park in your driveway in your absence.
3. Rather than boarding your pets, hire a pet sitter or ask a friend to help out.
A barking dog- a.k.a. nature's natural burglar alarm-almost always keeps thieves at bay.
4. Either have your mail and newspaper service suspended, or ask a neighbor to gather
your newspaper, mail and any other deliveries.
5. Arrange to have your lawn mowed at regular intervals.
6. Store-or at least hide from view-all valuables.
7. Leave window shades and draperies in their usual positions, but' do not close them all the
way on the street side of the house.
8. Lock all doors and windows, including those in the garage, the basement and the attic.
9. Disconnect electrical appliances, and lower air and heating units to energy-saving levels.
10. Make sure your auto, fire and health insurance policies are correct and up to date.
11. Leave a house key and itinerary with a neighbor, friend or relative. Be sure someone knows
how to operate your home alarm system.

Holly wood is a
place that dra\\s candi-
dates from all ages. eth-
nicities and locations
from around the w-orld.
MIan are called but
few are chosen. Those
of you \who read my
column features on a
regular basis are \\ell
familiar with Rvch
McCain's Hand-Picked
Family of Child/Teen
Artists. As a result of
my support of young
artists (black ones in
particular), I get many
referrals -from publi-
cists, agents, personal
managers and others. It
is especially exciting to
meet these youngsters
at the beginning of
their careers because
this is the point where
they need promotion
the most. My latest dis-
covery is an enchanting
8th grader in the person
of Taylor Parks.
This Dallas, Texas
native relocated to Los
Angeles with her fami-
ly at the encourage-
ment of fame choreog-
rapher, dancer, produc-
er and director Debbie
Allen who saw Parks
perform at one of her
Debbie Allen Dance
Studios Dallas work-
shops. Parks started to
work pretty quickly
once she arrived
appearing on the
"Gilmore Girls" and
"Everybody Hates
Chris." She is particu-

larly excited about her
first big role in the major
feature film HairspJ r y.
from Ne\\ Line Cinema.
This movie is the film
version of the smash hit
Broad\\ay stage play
and has a cast of major
heavyweights including
John Tra\plta. Amanda
Bvnes. Christopher
Walken. Queen Latifah
and Nlichelle Pfeiffer
among others. It has
already begun to gener-
ate an Oscar buzz!
In the movie. Parks
plays Little Inez who is
the daughter of Queen
Latifah's character
Maybelle. When asked
to describe her role,
Parks lights up, "The
film has a lot of amazing
people in it. We shot it in
Toronto, Ontario,
Canada. I was there
about three or four
months. My character is
kind of like the one that
wants to be in. She's one
of the best dancers and
she's really spunky and
has a lot of attitude and
she just thinks that she is
the best dancer and
everything, which she
'kind of is. I get to show-
case all three of my tal-
ents, dancing, singing
and acting." What does
she sing in the movie? "I
sing a song called "Run
Tell That," which is one
of my big parts. I'm
going to the bus stop
coming from school. It's
a really fun scene."
How big of a role
was it for Taylor? Her
eyes twinkle,. "There
were twelve main char-
acters and I wias one of
them. This is my biggest

Taylor Parks

role yet, so I was really
happy." Does the buzz
about Oscar get her
excited to hear that kind
of talk? Parks really
flashes her mega watt
smile on this one, "Yes it
does, because I got into
this business to get an
Oscar or a Grammy,
things like that and when
I hear them talking about
this movie possibly get-
ting one it gets me really
The movie will be

released soon in July to
big fan fare.
Parks is also work-
ing on her music career.
She says, "Singing is
my first love. So right
now I'm actually
recording a CD and try-
ing to get signed and
everything. It's going
to be real good. I'm
writing most of the
Parks is currently

Awards Shows
This weekend and next week
are going to be pretty jumping in
LA. Starting it all off this com-
ing Saturday, June 23, 2007, is
The Caribbean Heritage
Organization who will host their
Salute to Hollywood & the Arts
honoring Suzanne de Passe. Ms
de Passe is of Jamaican descent
and will receive the Legacy
Award. She is a former President
of Motown Productions and
currently heads de Passe
Productions. We will bring you
more on this event. The BET
Awards will take place at the
fame Shrine Auditorium in LA
on Tuesday, June 26. It will be
hosted by one of my favorite
people on earth Mo'Nique!
Beyonce leads the nomination
pack with six nods. Check your
local listings. This show will be
the bomb! The ASCAP R&B
Awards will happen on Monday,
June 25, 2007 at the Biltmore
Hotel in downtown LA. Mary J.
Blige will receive the Voice of
Music Award. And you can
believe the record label and pro-
duction company parties will be
in full blast at the hot spots all
over town during the entire
week. Everybody will sleep in
the week after!
Grammy-award Winning,
platinum rapper
Chamillionnaire readies for the
release of his highly anticipated
sophomore album Ultimate
Victory, with the debut of the
LP's first official single, "Hip
Hop Police" featuring the leg-
endary Slick Rick. The track,
which was produced by hitmak-
er JR Rotem, will be introduced
to the radio airwaves this month.
In addition to the debuting of the
new single, Chamillionaire will
also be giving away a free dou-
ble bonus to fans with the release

of Mixtape Messiah 3 and
Mixtape Messiah DVD. Look
for Rob G's Reppin' My
Block Mixtape in stores on
July 3.
New Book
SCheck out the delicious
new juicy novel entitled
Cycles of the Ghetto, a mem-
oir by Andrea Woods. This
author has been compared to
Toni Morrison and Terry
McMillan. She covers topics
such as baby-momma's grills,
gang activity, negative rap
music, saggin' pants to com-
mercialized pimpin'. For
more info check out
heghetto or www.cyclesoft-
Sunshine stars Rose
Byrne, Cliff Curtis, Chris
Evans, Troy Garity, Cillian
Murphy, Hiroyuki Sanada,
Benedict Wong and Michelle
Yeoh. This is a science fiction
tale that is pretty tough to
swallow i.e., a manned space
mission to the sun? Get real.
That is an impossible trip! The
premise is that the sun is
dying out and earth is in dan-
ger of freezing over. A crew is
sent to relight the sun (God's
job), by getting close enough
to the sun to shoot an atomic
bomb to its surface to. relight
its fire. This plot is so unreal
and it doesn't help that the
film is down right slow and
boring until almost the end.
This is one that you wait until
it is available to rent, and then
you still don't want to see it.
Hit me up at feedback-
