FDA Approves Drug for Advanced
Tykerb has been approved to be taken in conjunction
with chemotherapy drugs for women with an aggres-
sive form of advanced breast cancer that other treat-
ments have failed to stop. The drug is now available
but the amount of benefit it will offer is still unclear.
According to Glaxo-SmithKline PLC drug, Tykerb
is to be taken once a day in the form of a pill. The cost
is estimated to run about $2,900 a month,.
The study done showed that women taking both
drugs showed a delay in tumor growth of about seven
months versus almost five months for those on the one
drug, Xeloda. Tykerb, is part of a new generation of
medications given to more precisely target tumors
without killing a large group of healthy cells.

Ireland Get Its First Black
Mayor In Country's History
Rotimi Adebri, 43, has lived
in Ireland for seven years as an
asylum-seeker and has now
been elected, unopposed, to
S lead the council of Portlaoise, a
growing-commuter town, west
0:. .' l of Dublin, Ireland. Adebri is a
Nigerian and is an independent
politician who has served on
Rotimi Adebari Portiaoise Town Council since
2004. He was backed by both
the right-wing Fine Gael party and left-wing Sinn
Fein. According to reports, it has been a little more
than ten years since blacks have not appeared to be
odd in Ireland. Now, blacks are participating in the
economy as entrepreneurs and the new mayor is
encouraging newcomers to integrate with their com-
munities. Adebari is married and has two sons.
Because he could not originally find work when he
arrived in 2000, he served as a volunteer.
America Celebrates Independence
While Minority Protective Rights Are
The NAACP Legal
Defense Fund, the
National League and
many organizations are
disappointed that five
Justices of, the
Supreme Court voted
to strike down the vol-
untary racial, integra-
tion plans of Seattle,
Washington and Louisville, Kentucky school systems.
At a time when American is celebrating its inde-
pendence, it appears that progress in breaking down
racial barriers is now being sought to change, said
members of Jacksonville's minority community. Mr.
Richard Burton, a national board member of the
NAACP said that over the last twenty years or more,
he has seen many African American families fall
apart, with many parents and leaders compromising.
He said they are acting as if all is well because some
have managed to mainstream themselves and assimi-
late themselves within mainstream America.
This recent move, along with cutting out affirmative
action will allow America to step back and now address

FAMU Professor Dead, Husband Injured
Sheryl Shivers-Blackwell, 36, an assistant professor in the Division of Management
Services of Florida's A&M University's School of Business and Industry was found dead
Thursday evening and her husband critically injured inside their home in Tallahassee. Her
husband, Baron Blackwell, 43, was rushed to the hospital where he is still reported in crit-
According to police, they received a 9-1-1 call from the husband about 6:22 p.m.
Thursday. When the officers arrived, they found the door unlocked and the couple's two
children, a 3-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl that the officers feel were in the house at
the time of the incident. Tallahassee police ordered a search warrant to allow a complete
investigation but feel that the death and injuries were not caused by an outsider but was the
result of an apparent domestic dispute.
According to reports, Charles Evans, a professor in the School of Business and Industry,
said he knew Shivers-Blackwell when she was an undergraduate student. "She was a very
quiet, very humbling young lady," he said.
According to records, the assistant professor had been teaching at FAMU for several
years and her husband joined her less than a year ago after leaving law school in another
state. Evans said that Shivers-Blackwell had recently asked him to help her find a job for

thank you, the gentlemen of
the Colony of Virginia, for
bringing me here. I am here
to help you solve some of
your problems with slaves.
Your invitation reached me
on my modest plantation in
the West Indies, where I have
experimented with some of
the newest and still the oldest
methods for; control of
slaves. Ancient Rome's
would envy us if my pro-
gram is implemented. As our

illustrious King, whose ver-

on my modest plantation in

work throughout the South.

STRONGER THAN ADU-

THAT YOUR SLAVES

RESPECT AND TRUST

kits are your keys to control.

have your ashes scattered?
An option some people take
is to donate organs and tissues to
a medical school (have a donor
card and check on requirements).
If you would rather have a
memorial service express that
wish. That means a service in the
funeral home or a church where
the body is not present. A com-
mon misconception is that when
the body is cremated you don't
hold a funeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

* Court Knocks Down School Plan
Black Recruiting Down
High Court Strikes
Florida recruiter says blacks have more education &job opportunities now
Number of Black Military
Recruits Takes Nosedive
The Supreme Court
issued a series of far-reach-
ing split decisions last
Thursday, limiting the use
of race to assign public
school enrollment, blocking
the execution of a mentally
ill inmate and freeing manu-
facturers and retailers to set
price floors for products.
The decision in cases
affecting schools originated
in Louisville, Ky., and
Seattle could imperil similar
plans in hundreds of dis-
tricts nationwide, and it
leaves public school sys-
tems with a limited arsenal
to maintain racial diversity.
The 5-4 decision, with
Chief Justice John Roberts
announcing the court's judg-
ment, saw Justice Stephen
Breyer writing a 77:page
dissent that was joined by
the court's other three liber-
als and was read from the
bench in an unusual move.
"The way to stop dis-
crimination on the basis of
race is to stop discriminat-
ing on the basis of race,"
Yet Justice Anthony
Kennedy would not go as
far as the other four conser-
vative justices, saa ing in a
concurring opinion that race
may be a component of
school plans designed to
To the extent that
Roberts' opinion could be
interpreted to foreclose the
use of race in any circum-
stance, Kennedy said, "I
disagree with that reason-
"A district may consider
it a compelling interest to
achieve a diverse student
population," Kennedy said.
"Race may be one compo-
nent of that diversity."
He agreed with Roberts
that the plans in Louisville
and Seattle violated consti-
tutional guarantees of equal
Justice Stephen Breyer,
in a dissent joined by the
other liberals on the court,
said Roberts' opinion under-
mined the promise of inte-
grated schools that the court
laid out 53 years ago in its
landmark decision in
Brown v. Board of
"To invalidate the plans
under review is to threaten
the promise of Brown,"
Chief Justice Roberts
Some believe that this is
the new Chief Justice's
vision of a case that can
secure his legacy. Indeed,
for all his complaints of
how the dissent was engag-
ing in hyperbole (he calls
Breyer's rhetoric "cata-
clysmic"), there is a fair
amount of hysteria in Chief
Justice Roberts opinion.
Twice, he refers to the plans
forwarded by Seattle and
LouIs\ille as "extreme".
But he gives very little, in
the way of analysis as to
what makes them extreme
- especially compared to
the radical claim that race-
based desegregation and
race-based segregation are

Justice on the bench, sided
with the majority.

as parents and teachers, is a
major factor, too.

Justice Clarence Thomas predictably votes with Supreme Court Majority
Washington, DC The only Black Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court voted along

Associate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas voted with the conservative
majority of U.S. Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts and Associate Justices
Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia to reject the diversity plans of the

Roberts wrote the opinion of the court.
The dissenting opinion was written by Associate Justice Stephen Breyer, who was

Education, which outlawed segregated public schools.
In his concurring opinion to the court, Thomas said that there was no real need for

"Re-segregation is not occurring in Seattle or Louisville; these schools boards have no
present interest in remedying past segregation; and these race-based student assignment

Diabetes: A powerful Killer, But One
Blacks Have the Power to Win Against
SEATTLE (NNPA) The diabetes epidemic among African-Americans is serious, dead-
ly serious. Black people are 2 percent more likely to die from Type Two diabetes than
Whites, according to Dr. Carl Gibson a moderator of the Diabetes workshop at the annual
convention of the National Newspaper Publishers Association in late June.
But, the workshop, held in a room that had earlier served a breakfast of white bread
rolls, eggs, sausage, and turkey bacon to a crowd of more than 200 people, saw less than
half of the original crowd by the time the panelists began speaking about ways to prevent
and diabetes and other health problems.
Three million African-Americans have diabetes, a disease that that develops from risk
factors such as obesity, physical inactivity, and family history.
Nevertheless, Gibson was hopeful. "We might be at high risk," he said. "But we can
make some changes."
Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body does not make enough insulin or cannot use the
insulin it makes effectively. Insulin helps the body use sugar, which is supposed to go to
your body's cells in order to build energy. However, for people with Type 2 diabetes, the
insulin just stays in the blood which creates high blood glucose levels.
Normal glucose levels for someone that has not eaten for more than two hours is less
than 140. When someone has a level of more than 200 after the same time period, the per-
son is diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
Yet, Dr. Gibson said that ancestry alone does not equal to high risk.
Ethlyn Gibson, a registered nurse, said that African-Americans should be eating fruit
three times a day and one food item from the dairy group. She also said that physical activ-
ity should take place five times a week for at least 30 minutes.
In fact, the Diabetes Prevention Program in collaboration with the National Institutes of
Health showed that obese African-Americans who followed this exercise routine lost up to
seven percent of their body weight. For people 200 pounds and over, that translated up to
15 pounds. Exercise programs included brisk walking and limiting calories.
Women and men respectively should not eat more than 1800 and 2000 calories a day,
Gibson said. Regular visits to the doctor after the age of 40-to get screened and to test blood
glucose levels as well as taking prescribed medication can control and prevent diabetes. Dr.
Antoine Johnson also acknowledged that improved health care delivery and cultural aware-
ness will also lead to a decrease in the occurrences of diabetes.
But what happens when a group of people who disproportionately lack healthcare insur-
ance ends up telling everyone else but the doctor about their ill health as African-Americans
too often do? The Washington State Department of Health recognized the need to address
that problem and did something innovative.
The health department began educating community barbers and beauticians about the
disease so that they can give helpful suggestions instead of sympathy to the clients that sit
in their chairs. The program included more than 20 barber and beauty shops throughout the
Seattle metropolitan area.
Complications of diabetes include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, and lower leg
amputation. Eileen Emori of the health department said, "Diabetes just does not affect an
individual; it affects the family and community.
Dennis Weaver, founder of Change Your Food, Change Your Life Inc, encourages
African-Americans to begin eating organic foods.
"Organic food is food as it should be," he said. "It is food that has not been chemically
altered and contains no preservatives."
Weaver said that less than 60 years ago, all food was organic and that the health condi-
tions of Americans were better as a result.
"Today many overweight people die with ideal cholesterol levels," he said. "Low
inflammation of the abdomen is the real cause." Weaver said that the body rejects food that
is not in its purest form and that over a long period of time, the non-organic food build up
leads to inflammation.
Whether it's walking or running throughout the week or eating more foods with fewer
calories, the health experts believe diabetes can be controlled or prevented.
Says Gibson, "We will perish not because of what anything is doing to us, but because
of what we are doing ourselves."
JUSTICE BREYERS ISSUES COMPELLING DISSENT ON RACE
The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision on Thursday, June 28 was a reactionary one and
will promote re-segregation -- in the name of "colorblindness."
The lower courts were correct in Louisville, Ky. and Seattle, Wash. by allowing
RACE -- as one element -- in their student-assignment plans. The black and white
citizens of Jefferson County, Ky., after decades of struggling with the issue of segre-
gated public schools, overwhelmingly supported the efforts of their school district.
Both of these school districts tailored the use of race to address a "compelling inter-
est" in reducing racial-isolation in their schools, in achieving a diverse student body
population and in combatting the effects of segregated housing patterns.
The NAACP supported the efforts of these 2 progressive school districts. The con-
servative, lily-white and misnamed Center for Equal Opportunity joined an amicus
brief asking the Court to strike down the school assignment programs.
Justice Kennedy failed to join the comments of Chief Justice Roberts in denying
RACE as an important tool in helping to overcome continued racial-segregation and
re-segregation in our nation's public schools. Kennedy, while egregiously-voting
with the conservative majority, issued a sperate opinion and did NOT embrace Chief
Justice Roberts legal opinion that race as a factor could not be considered.
Both school systems remain committed to diversity.
Justice Stephen Breyer issued a very lengthy -- and by far the most thoughtful and
compelling -- dissenting opinion in which he said these school system remedies were
narrowly-tailored, very-compelling and strongly accused the majority of turning its
back on the court's precedence since Brown v. Board.

Black College Enrollment Rate in South Passes Milestone
RALEIGH, N.C. For
the first time ever in the
South, blacks are as well
represented on college
campuses as they are in the
region's population as a
whole _something not yet
true of the country overall.
The milestone is noted
in a new fact book to be
released Monday by the
Education Board, a non-
profit organization that
In the 16 states meas-
ured, the number of blacks
enrolled in colleges has
risen by more than half
over the last decade. They
now make 21 percent of
college students and 19
percent of the overall pop-
The number represents
progress but it also has to
be seen in context. A major
contributing factor is the
South's rapidly growing
which has reduced the pro-
portion of the population
that is black, and thereby
made the milestone easier
to reach mathematically.
And educators also
stressed that the number
should not obscure the per-
sistent achievement gaps
affecting blacks both in the
South and nationally. In
particular, black enroll-
ment rates for college-age
students, while improving,
still lag well behind those
of whites, as do the gradu-
ation rates of black college
With a college degree
now almost a prerequisite
for high-paying jobs, those
achievement gaps pose an
economic threat and the
South will be on the cut-
ting edge of that. In 2005
about 61 percent of public
high school graduates in
the South were white, the
education board said. but
by 2018 that figure is
expected to be 45 percent.
"-We've made tremen-
dous progress, don't get
me wrong." board
President Dave Spence
said. But, he added, unless
achievement gaps narrow,
"we're going to be in trou-
ble. We already are in trou-
ble, but we'll be in more
trouble seven or eight
years down the road."
The latest report may
not reflect precisely what
many consider the South,
because the 16 states it
covers also include border
Delaware, West Virginia
Still, the report reflects
the reality that many more
Southern blacks are
enrolling in college. In
those states, about 1.1 mil-
lion black students were
enrolled in college in the
fall of 2005, 52 percent
more than a decade earlier.
The increase has come
largely from new and
expanding public, tradi-
tionally white universities
and two-year colleges
rather than from historical-
ly black colleges, whichh
for many years shouldered
nearly all the burden of
higher education for
Southern blacks. Many of
those schools still exist.

IShould I Take A Break From College?
Should You Take A
Break or a"Gap Year"
By Stuart Simpson
What is a "Gap Year?"
Actually, it's the new term for
taking off a year after high
school but before college.
Sound fun? Not if you think
it's for slackers.
A gap year is intended to
help kids get a better grasp on
the real world after high
school. Three months off
before you start college isn't
enough for some. This "gap
year" idea can give college
students a better attempt to
manage money and graduate
in the typical 4 years.
Unfortunately, only 37% of
freshmen complete the 4-year
degree according to the
Education Trust of
Some students volunteer,
travel abroad, or intern. This
work can cost money, but in
some instances, make the stu-
dents money. Americorps.org
offers a good source for vol-
Interimprograms.com tries to
match students with an intern
program that matches their
career goals. If you want to
travel and learn about a for-
eign country before you start
school, then you should
William Fitzsimmons of
Harvard co-wrote an article
about "Time out or burn our
for the next generation." He
discusses why letting kids
devote time to their own pur-
suits gives them a break from
the stress of high school.
Who pays for this "gap
year?" Well, it depends on
what your students do. Some
programs pay the students,
while others expect payment
for your kid's hiatus. Some
parents do an equal share sav-
ings for the gap year.
What about financial aid?
Usually, you'll have to
reapply. It's a good idea to
get accepted to a college first,
and then ask for a deferment.

Internal Personnel Problems
Lead to Unscheduled Review
of National Hurricane Center
Amid signs of obvious internal strife, the
Commerce Department sent an independent
team to the National Hurricane Center today
to finish an unscheduled review to deter-
mine if forecasters can fulfill their mission
under current management.
Bill Proenza has

aware "of concerns about the hurricane cen-

The Miami Herald has reported that three
senior forecasters at the National Hurricane
Center called Tuesday for the ouster of
Proenza, saying he has damaged public con-
fidence in their forecasts, fractured morale
and lost their support.
"I don't think that Bill can continue
here," said James Franklin, one of five sen-
ior forecasters at the center. "I don't think he
can be an effective leader."
Two others -- Richard Pasch and Rick
Knabb -- told The Miami Herald that they
concur. "We need a change of leadership
here at the.hurricane center,"'"Pasch said.
"It's pretty much as simple as that.'"
I want to ensure the Center's continued
readiness for not only this season but future
seasons," he said in a memo Friday to center
staffers. Lautenbacher also heads the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, which oversees the
National Weather Service, the hurricane
center's parent agency.
Through employee interviews, the team
will assess the hurricane center's ability to
provide accurate and timely information,

Rhoda L. Martin Cultural Center's Grand Opening
On Saturday, June 23 the Rhoda L. Martin Cultural Heritage Center held it's Grand
The Center honors and remembers Rhoda L. Martin who started the Jacksonville Beach
School for Colored People in 1924 in her home. The Cultural Heritage museum is housed
in the 1939 school building for the Jacksonville Beach School for Colored People.
Jacksonville Beach School for Colored People was started in the home of Mother Rhoda
Martin (the great-grand-mother of the Terrell family of Jacksonville Beach, Florida). The
school was located on the corer of Shetter Avenue and 7th Street. In 1928, the county erect-
ed a four room brick structure on 315 10th Street South. The new school became a source
of pride for the entire community. This event began the merger between Jacksonville Beach
School for Colored People and the other one-room wooden houses which eventually became
Jacksonville Beach Elementary School. The new school served Jacksonville Beach, San
Pablo, Atlantic Beach, Mayport, and the Palm Valley areas. The students who did not reside
in the Jacksonville Beach community area were bused to the new facility.
These four classrooms were the focal points of the communities. Functions such as
socials, Friday night sock hops, banquets, clinics, bazaars, and receptions were held in these
buildings. Jacksonville Beach Elementary School featured a marching band, 4-H club,
Future Farmers of America and several other organizations.
In 1952, the cafeteria, principal's office, clinic, teacher's lounge, and two primary class-
rooms were added to the school. The PTA presidents, along with Mr. Charlie Young, worked
tirelessly to ensures that the children received every advantage possible.
In 1963, Jacksonville Beach Elementary School was modified to include a Junior High
School curriculum. Before this transpired, children were bussed to Douglas Anderson High
School for the 6th through 12th grades. In 1968, through the efforts of desegregation,
Jacksonville Beach Elementary and Junior High School returned to an elementary school for
grades Kindergarten through sixth grade.
In 1971 Jacksonville Beach Elementary became a school for the Gifted and
Academically Talented. The gifted students participate in a full time academic program.
The education of gifted and academically talented children is provided through instruction
that teaches students to seek, explore, discover and develop their minds to the fullest poten-
In 1998 Jill Leinhauser became the principal of Jacksonville Beach Elementary School.
Through her dedication and commitment to the faculty, parents, students, and community,
the school was rehoused in a new facility. This facility continues to provide a source of
pride within the community.
One of the original 1928 brick buildings was moved to the current location on 4th Avenue
South. This building houses the Cultural Heritage Center and Museum.
Mother Rhoda L. Martin was born in 1832. Her family moved from Live Oak,Florida to
Jacksonville Beach, Florida. She was the mother of two daughters, Corrie and Gussie Martin
k and four sonsfames (Jim Terrell), Wort, Roy and C. J. Martin.
Local Fireworks Light Our Skys;
Other Communities have Problems
While Jacksonville man-
aged to celebrate the Fourth
of July with a minimum of
fireworks related injuries,
other communities around
the state did not fare as well.
Some communities had
to cancel their fireworks
due to lack of cooperation
from mother nature while
minor injuries were report-
ed in other areas.
In St. Petersburg twelve
people got minor injuries
from an explosion at the

were life threatening, said
St. Pete Beach spokes-

Three people from the
motel were treated for cuts
at a local hospital.
In Bradenton, a 43-year-
old man watching a fire-
works show was seriously

powerful firecracker near

Old WWII Bomb Brings Early
Fireworks to Crescent Beach
Fireworks came a bit early this Fourth of
July in Crescent Beach Wednesday when
police detonated a live World War H-era
bomb found on the beach. The 100-pound
bomb measured close to 3 feet long and
looked like a torpedo. It was rusty and cov-
ered in barnacles, according to Kevin
Kelshaw, a spokesman for the St. Johns
County Sheriffs Office.

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known for its fearless approach
to reality-based subjects!
I feel there's a difference between honesty and not telling the
whole truth in a relationship. My husband has the tendency to
leave out important facts. I've learned that he'll tell me what
he wants me to know and when I find out other things, he
claims he forgot. How do you forget that you have a child,
how do you forget that you got fired and how do you forget
you have a wife. In other words, he's living a double life and
I don't know what to do?
Carol (Charleston, SC)
Your marriage is missing trust and communication which are the strongest staples for a solid
relationship. There are also some issues with you that may cause your husband to be intim-
idated so he's forced to lie about everything. However, there are no excuses for his double
life in which he has committed adultery. The both of you need to invest in a therapist to sort
out your issues, organize your mess and clear the air of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde person-
My boyfriend has finally proposed and I don't know if I want to accept. I had images and
thoughts that when it happened, I would feel a certain way and my life would change. My
heart feels heavy and now I'm scared and not sure if I want to get married. I realize that I
have to answer to him, my life will change and I lose all of my freedom. Is there anything
I can do to feel better about this whole thing?
You can feel better by realizing that you're not ready for marriage. You may want the ben-
efits of finance, sex and entertainment, but you're not ready for the idea of a committed
marriage. Have a talk with your boyfriend so that he doesn't spend money or make any
investments knowing you have cold feet. Marriage is a blessing and a benefit. You may need

Stressed Grand Ma (Glen Burney, MD)
Dear Grand Ma:
Your grandson and your daughter both need discipline. You have to realize the toddler is
going to be a handful and he'll be into everything on a regular basis. This is no excuse
because your daughter should be teaching him a few things. He's at a curious stage but he
can use a few taps on those little hands when they wander. Put your foot down to your
daughter that she needs to take care of her child and stop being a freeloader or she's out and
keep it moving.

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Jacksonville Transportation Authority
The Jacksonville Transportation Authority hereby gives notice of pro-
posed fare adjustments planned for October 1, 2007. This is the first fare
increase offered by JTA in nearly nine years. During that time, the cost of
fuel alone has increased 226 percent. So far, the JTA has absorbed
these increases with existing revenue. But these containment initiatives
can no longer keep pace with the escalating costs. Even with the pro-
posed increases, JTA will continue to have some of the lowest fares in
the state of Florida. The JTA will hold four identical Public Hearings to
discuss the fare adjustments and receive public comment on the pro-
posed fare modifications. You are invited to attend any of the meetings.

Africa, the "pearl" has lost its luster as civil war and disease have de, a>tc-te,- the
country, but it's still a formidable, fortunate frontier.
Despite America being a land of plenty and relative wealth, census report'. reveal
that undeniable poverty persists in nearly 600 counties. From California to Maine.
these economically depressed pockets can be found with high illiteracy rates.
Hurricane Katrina was mighty successful in unfolding the poverty side of America.
We must be cognizant that as America continues growing faster than most other
countries, elsewhere in the world, livestock and basics remain paramount issues. The
important thought-provoking message here is to learn to live with nature, rather than
bombarding it with technology and science.
Worldwide, more than one billion people are undernourished. That's largely one
sixth of the population. (America, the rich and the poor, is only about 6% of the
world's population). Additionally, in America, the world's number one superpower,
we openly recognize that nutrition is woefully inadequate, thus the existence of a sad
cycle destined to repeat itself in ongoing generations.
In these countries (and many I left out), projects, organizations and foundations
exist with what is called "living loans" and "passing on the gift." It's a simple
process. An income producing animal is given to a family with the contract under-
standing that the "first fruit" of that gift is given to their neighbor. Before anyone can
receive they must pass on. You must qualify, learning how to care for the gift by
making provisions for shelter, food and water. For example, the Heifer Project ani-
mals are bees, cows, ducks earthworms, elephants, fish, geese, goats, mules, ostrich-
es, pigs, rabbits, silk worms, snails, yaks, etc. These "living loans" creating living
banks addresses some of the most difficult problems facing our world today and
many forgotten families.
A loan can not only be obtained from a bank. A loan can also come from a walk-
ing, living human spirit like you and I. Not all loans are cash. Making a deposit in
somebody's life with a little time and attention, has a high yield unmatched by tradi-
tional institutional standards.
This is not rocket science, stem cell, identify theft or spam. This is "one-plus-one-
equals-two.""Two-plus-two-equals four."I think I like it being dubbed "the world
bank." After all, my position is still that earth is one country, an earlier article. No
country or project stands alone. All are part of a larger plan embroidered in the fabric.
"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another; as good
stewards of the manifold grace of God" (1 Peter 4:10).

U Black Floridians
SShould be Tested for Colon Cancer
E Testing for colon cancer can prevent cancer and save lives, "
I according to the American Cancer Society.
S Colon cancer almost always starts with a polyp, and tests can -
T find and remove polyps early on, before they become cancerous. R
' Colon cancer can't be prevented unless people get tested, and not
U enough Floridians get tested each year.
Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death
U in the United States. In Florida's black community, nearly 900 men
.and women will be diagnosed and more than 400 will die of the dis-,
T ease each year. U
"Testing can find polyps early so they can be removed before
They turn cancerous," says John Chaperon, president and chairman n
Sof the board of the American Cancer Society, Florida Division. "This ,
U can help us defeat a major cancer killer by preventing it altogether."
| Colon cancer is usually preventable, and it's also very treatable ^
I when caught early. When the disease is found at an early stage, the U
U five-year survival rate is approximately 90 percent. In Florida, less "
^ than two-thirds of men and women get tested when they should. ^
e Because testing rates are so low, only 39 percent of colon cancers
U are discovered at the earliest,' most curable stage.
I- Everyone age 50 and older is at risk for colon cancer, regardless ,

eratively with the Council to attain success in what is shaping up to be a potentially

Al Horford, Corey Brewer and Joakin Noah were all
selected in the top ten at the NBA draft last Thursday
night. Just for the record I guess Billy Donovan gets
this one that is the a first! It is the only time that there
has been three players from the same school in the top
ten. Taurean Green and Chris Richards both went in the
second round, to give the Gators a total of five draftees.
These guys created some interesting footnotes as
Al Horford's selection at. the No. 3 spot was the
highest by a Florida men's basketball player since Neal
Walk went No. 2 to the Phoenix Suns in 1969. He is the
first Gator to be drafted by the Atlanta Hawks
The five players drafted is the most ever by a
Florida team -the Gators had two players drafted in both
1984 and 2000
Al Horford and Taurean Green joined their fathers
Sas NBA draft picks. Tito Horford was a second round
pick of the Milwaukee Bucks in 1988 and Sidney Green
was a first round pick (No. 5 overall) by the Chicago
Bulls in 1983.

have only 4 career starts in a 4-year career and be draft-

Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver
Jacksonville got more than a professional football
team back in November of 1993 when the NFL
announced that Weaver and Jacksonville had been
awarded the franchise. They got a dynamic duo in Wayne
and his wife..
Wayne and Delores Weaver joke easily about their
modest family backgrounds and Southern roots and
even more so about the twist of fate that brought them
together. They knew each other as teenagers in
Columbus, Georgia, when Delores went to work in the
dress shop operated by Wayne's mother.
This past week Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver hon-
ored several Northeast Florida nonprofit organizations,
and announced personal charitable gifts totaling $21 mil-
lion to further the critical missions of 38 organizations.
With these gifts, the Weavers personally and the
Weaver Family Foundation combined will have con-
tributed more than $42 million to local area nonprofits.

Alvin Pearlman keeps busy in off season
Jacksonville, FL While some NFL players take
their off-season time for relaxation and fun, Jaguars run-
ning back Alvin Pearlman has been trying to stay pro-
ductive on and off the field before reporting to training
camp on July 27.
Since the 2006 season ended in January, Pearlman
has kept his plate full with an internship at Merrill
Lynch in New York, a missions trip to Africa with
Athletes in Action, a two-week real estate seminar at the
University of Pennsylvania and participated in the inau-
gural NFL Broadcasting Boot Camp.
"I'm young and there are a lot of opportunities to be
had," said Pearlman, whose entering his third season
with the Jaguars after being taking by the team in the
fourth round of the 2005 draft. "With the position I am
in, I would be foolish not to take advantage of each and
every opportunity that I have."
FAMU Reinstates Willie Hayward
Tallahassee, FL Willie Hayward, Florida A&M's
top returning playmaker, was reinstated to the football
team Friday following an indefinite suspension imposed
by head coach Rubin Carter in early April.
Hayward missed almost all of the spring football
practices, including the annual spring game, after Carter
booted him from the team, the most severe penalty
Carter has levied during his two years at FAMU.
The 6-foot-4 wide receiver led the Rattlers last sea-
son in receiving yards (674) and yards per catch (13.8),
and tied for most recei ingr touchdowns (5). The Miami
native will be a senior this fall.
"Willie had to make some formal apologies to uni-
versity staff for things he had done or said," Carter said.
"He's met all the conditions to return to the program."
"Willie is extremely remorseful for his actions. I
think he wants to come back and be a part of a positive
AAFL Moves Forward with Tryouts in Orlando
No one has yet figured out how to duplicate the excite-
ment, competition, and intensity of the NFL.
But one group has decided that is not the right approach.
Lets duplicate the excitement, competition, and intensity of
college football they say. So a group of some of the most
accomplished university sports leaders, led by Cedric W.
Dempsey, former President of the
NCAA, has formed the All American
Football League, a new professional
spring league, most of whose teams will
be hosted by Division IA universities.
Graduates of host universities will, to
the extent practical, play for teams host-
ed by their alma mater.
A typical candidate for the new
AAFL would be someone like Rudy
Griffin whose college football career
ended two years ago when he graduated
from Alabama, but the desire to play
still hasn't left him.
Rudy drove 300 miles from Albany,
Ga., to Orlando this week for a chance Rudy Griffin who ma

Griffin was among about 300 former college football
players invited to the first tryouts for the All-American

April 2008. The players ran 40-yard dashes and through
agility drills, were weighed and measured and tested at their

Utah Jazz Point Guard Leaves Team
to Care for Infant Daughter's Cancer
At an emotional news conference Monday, the Utah Jazz
agreed to release guard Derek Fisher from his contract so he
can concentrate on finding the best care for his 11-month-
old daughter, who has cancer in her left eye.
"Life for me outweighs the game of basketball," Fisher
told reporters after flying from New York to meet with Jazz
owner Larry H. Miller and other team executives. Fisher
said he wants to live in one of the six or seven cities being
considered for Tatum's care. He didn't rule out playing for
another NBA team but emphasized that his daughter's health
is his No. 1 priority.
"When it comes to decisions related to them," he said of
his family, "I do what's best."
In May, his daughter was diagnosed with retinoblastoma,
a cancerous tumor in her left eye. The danger is that it could
spread to her brain or the rest of her body.
Fisher at times fought exhaustion trying to balance bas-
ketball and his daughter's welfare. He spent a day at a New
York hospital in May, then flew to Utah for a Western
Conference semifinal game against Golden State.
Only 350 cases of retinoblastoma are diagnosed each
year in North America,
according to Dr. A. Linn
Murphree, director of the
retinoblastoma program at
Children's Hospital Los
Angeles, who is not involved
in the Fisher case...
In most cases, patients
lose the eye rather than
undergo chemotherapy, but
there are exceptions.
After the news confer- Ic i
ence, Fisher and wife
Candace were flying to New
York for another medical
"Outwardly she's doing Derek Fisher, Utah Jazz Guard
great. Her spirits are good," Fisher said of Tatum.
He said his desire to leave Utah does not mean that med-
ical care here is weak. Rather, Fisher said he and his wife
need a place that has the "right combination" of specialists.
He declined to identify the cities under consideration.
Many NBA players work apart from their families, but it's
not an option for him. He and Candace have four children.
"For me and my family, we just don't believe in it... I
don't think I could be the player I could be if I had to carry
that load," Fisher said.
Wiping away tears, Miller said Fisher "leaves a legacy"
of leadership and toughness for Utah's young players.
"He's focused on the most important thing," the owner
said of Fisher's request to leave the Jazz.
Fisher doesn't want to retire but acknowledged it's a pos-
sibility. "I'll be 33 in August. I'm 6-1. I averaged 10 points
this year," he said. "I don't know how many people feel
strongly abotl what I do." "
that whole college atmosphere again," said Griffin, who
coaches a high school team. "Put the uniform on and actual-
ly run out there. I'm still around the game of football. I love
the game of football; that's my passion."
The AAFL hopes to tap into a "pent-up demand" during
the NFL offseason by tying it into college sports. Teams will
be located in high-profile markets like
Alabama, Florida and Tennessee, and
feature former players for those schools
and others. In many cases, the games
would be held at college stadiums, and
even the uniforms would have similar
color schemes as the college.
"Fans might actually care more who
wins than if it was just a team called
Orlando playing a team called
Knoxville," league CEO Marcus Katz
said. "If that's true if we touch on
people's heartstrings this has a better
chance. If you don't care who wins,
news at the All players must have a college
is a walk-on who degree and have used up their eligibili-
st game he was eligi- ty. Any former player is welcome to try
Splay football out not just those who played where
the teams will be.
The league feeds on college rivalries, and Katz said play-
ers mostly wouldn't cross them. No former Florida State
player would play for the Gainesville team, for example.
The league still isn't sure how many teams it'll have or
where, but it could have one for both the Gators and
Seminoles, Katz said.
Organizers include some big names. The chairman of the
board of directors is former NCAA president Cedric
Dempsey, and other board members include former UCLA
chancellor and Florida president Charles Young and Gene
Corrigan, retired Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner.
League officials say they'll play in spring, and won't even
try to compete with the NFL.
Katz, a former student loan entrepreneur, said about
2,000 players applied for the Orlando tryouts, but there was
only room for a few hundred. Further invitation-only tryouts
will be held at other locations, and open calls are also
planned around the country..
"We want to make sure everybody gets a shot," Katz
The league was also planning a small scrimmage today
Quarterbacking will be Shane Matthews, a former
Florida player who just retired after 13 seasons in the NFL.
Matthews, by far the biggest name at the tryouts, said he was
mostly excited for the other guys who never got a shot in the
pros. He said he might play in the league, but also might try
tb coach in it.
,"Even if you've been out of football, or whatever the
sport may be, all of us are very competitive," he said. "And
any time you might have a chance to maybe play a young
kid's sport again for a living, people are going to jump at the

WILL THE REAL GENDER
PLEASE COME OUT? An offi-
cer was called to a hotel where a .
witness observed a person solicit-
ing sex. When the officer arrived,
he witnessed the conversation
between the suspect and the FP s
buyer. The suspect was taken to
the JPDF and booked for prostitu-
tion. After booking the suspect
into the women's jail, the suspect
told the booking officer that he
was not a she, but is a man. and
would like to go to the men's side.
When the officer picked up the
suspect, he was wearing women's clothing and appeared to be female. The
suspect demanded that he goes to the male side, but the officers did not
believe the seemingly female was telling the truth. The suspect had to start
talking in his normal male voice before the officers agreed that it was a male
after all. The suspect was then taken to the proper cell of his gender.
OKAY, WHO HIT WHO? An officer was dispatched to the 1000 block of
Prince St. in reference to a hit and run of a parked car. The owner of the vehi-
cle called because she heard a loud bang in the early morning and ran to the
door where she noticed her green colored car that was parked out front had
been hit and damaged. When she got to the door the other vehicle that had hit
it and fled from the scene. The police took the report. Later that morning, a
person called in from the 1200 block of Albany, stating that someone had ran

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 orn inmers and asking a neighbor 1o
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.

The theme of this
year's BET Awards
Show was "The Main
Event," and indeed it
was that and more.
The BET Awards
Show is known for
their show opening
shockers and this
year the moment
belonged to the two
Holiday and Hudson
who performed a
Holliday's smash hit
anthem "And I Am
Needless to say those
sistahs "sang!" After
singing like that it
was almost sickening
to have to stomach
the weak vocaliza-
tion of the video era,
vixens who followed
later on in the show.
Ring and sports
Buffer, whose trade-
mark tuxedo and
Get Ready To
Rumble," are famous
the Jennifer's with
his signature intro-
duction of the show's
who threw down the
entire night as only
she could.. Highlights
of the evening includ-
ed a singing tribute to
the late Gerald Levert
by his dad Eddie
Levert, Patti LaBelle,
Chaka Khan and
Gladys Knight. A
funky tribute was also
made to the Godfather
of Soul, the late James
Brown by Bootsy
Collins and Public
Enemy (Chuck D,
Flavor Flay, Prof.
Griff and DJ Lord).
Cheadle was present-
ed with the BET
for his advocacy
regarding the geno-
cide in Darfur and the
Diana Ross was hon-
ored with the BET
Award. All five of her
children joined her
onstage for the tribute.
Beyonce (Best Female
R&B Artist and Video
of the year for
Jennifer Hudson (Best
New Artist and Best
Female Actress) led
the pack with their
two wins each. Repeat
winners from last year
included rapper T.I.
(Best Hip Hop Artist)
and Kirk Franklin
(Best Gospel Artist).
Mo'Nique, T.I, 50
L to R; Jennifer Holiday & Jennifer Hudson
Cent, Ciara, Diddy,
Keyshia Cole, Robin
Thicke, Eve, Kelly
Rowland and Ne-Yo
kept the show sizzling
from beginning to end.
There were a host of
superstar presenters as
well. The BET Awards
are by far the best
black awards show in
the business bar
none. They are highly
organized (with the
exception of a couple
of rude "hired-for-

Happy Birthday congrats is in order
for teen actor Oren Wlliams. His sweet
16 bash was a celebrity studded pool
party with plenty of splashing and water
gun fights. You can see his recurring,
wayward teen Andre Halstead on the hit
CBS Drama Series "Cold Case "
EYM (Educating Young Minds), a
501-C Non-Profit Organization in Los
Angeles dedicated to assisting inner-city
youth (grades K-12), held their 9th
Annual Scholarship & Academics
Awards Gala. The organization's founder
and CEO is Ms. Angeles Echols This is
one of the best programs in the nation.

After-School Tutorial Services, The
Saturday Program and The College
Scholarship Program. This event is
always well attended by major
Hollywood celebrities every year and this
year was no exception.
Celebrities who were honored includ-
ed teen actress (Akeelah and the Bee) and
Atlantic recording artist KeKe Palmer
(The Young Achiever's Award) and
actor/director/producer Levar Burton
(Roots) (Star Trek The Next Generation),

Live Free or Die Hard, 20th Century
Fox Pictures; Starring Bruce Wftlls,
1imothy Olyphant Justin Long, Cliff
Curtis, Maggie Q and Mary Elizabeth
Winstead Directed by Len Wseman,
Screenplay by Mark Bomback and
story by DavidMarconi ProduCed by
Michael Fottre.l Executive produc-
ers; Arnold Rifkin and William
Wisher. This by far the best Die Hard
movie yet The plot makes sense, the
characters are intense and the action is
non-stop throughout the film in all of
the right places. Bruce Willis as
Detective John McClane uses his gift
for humor and seriousness while
engaging in ahead trip as well as phys-
ical battle with arch nemesis Thomas
Gabriel (Olyphant) who is hell bent on
taking down the United States' com-
puter infrastructure. Det. McClane
uses the help of computer hacker Matt
Farrell (Long) to save the day. Sexy
Mai (Maggie Q) provides the film's
male eye candy as well as some good
marshal arts fighting while McClane's
college age daughter Lucy (Winstead),
is the chip-off-the-old-block, fight you
back kidnap victim who must be res-
cued by her dad. This is a good nail bit-
ing action flick
Transformers stars Shia
LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh
Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John
Turturro, Jon Voight, Anthony
Anderson and Rachael Taylor. This
movie has been hyped for over a year
with big expectations. The plot is week
and predictable but who goes to an
action movie looking for a strong story
plot? Shia LaBeoufwho has just come
off a superb performance in the thriller
"Disturbia," is equally as good in this
film playing teen nerd (Sam
Witwicky). LaBeouf easily carries his
lead role from beginning to end with
humor and seriousness in all of the
right places plus a general sense of
knowing when to do what at the right
time considering that his Transformer
co-stars didn't exist on the set and were
computer generated. Megan Fox who
plays his girlfriend (Mikaela Banes)
provided plenty of sexiness for her
scenes. Bemie Mac as used car sales-
man (Bobby Bolivia) and Anthony
Anderson as computer hacker (Glen
Whitmann) of course provided the
laughs and Tyrese Gibson played
another good military role as Tech
Sergent Epps. John Voight was an out-
standing Defense Secretary John
