Night Time Is Not The
Right Time 212 Arrested
Clay County Sheriff's Office initiated Operation
Night SITE in mid May. During a six-week period,
212 arrests were made. The arrests included drug pos-
session, armed robbery, moving'violations, aggravated
battery, possession of concealed weapon, warrants,
and many more. Along with the arrests, many other
citations were issued such as 547 moving violations,
371 nonmoving violations and 734 written warnings.
The crime-fighting initiative was operated in the late
evening and early-morning hours. Clay County
Sheriff's Office said they are planning to make the
program a permanent tactic program since the area is
one of the state's fastest growing communities.
The organization said that the program is similar to
the ones used in New York, Philadelphia and
Jacksonville. Jacksonville's program was called
'Operation Safe Streets" in'an effort to combat crime,
and in Jacksonville, the homicide rate.
Accordingto CCSO, a smaller version of the pro-
gram was utilized during the past two holiday periods
and helped to prevent almost all felony activity at the
Orange Park Mall. By using such programs, they are
able to determine where the emerging criminal trends
exists and where they need to shift their resources.
Such a method of pressure work to move the criminals
out and into different areas out of Clay County.

"If HIV/AIDS were the
leading cause of death of
White women between the
ages of 25 and 34, there
would be an outraged outcry
in this country," declared
Sen. Hillary Clinton, drawing
rousing applause. "This is a
multiple dimension prob-
lem," Clinton concluded.
"But if we don't begin to take
it seriously and address it the
way we did back in the 90s,
when it was primarily a gay
men's disease, we will never
get the services and the pub-
lic education that we need."
Sen. Barack Obam'a urged
African Americans to chal-
lenge stigma surrounding the
virus, and notably cited
homophobia as a roadblock.
"We don't talk about it in
the schools. Sometimes we
don't talk about it in the
churches," said Obama, who
talked about AIDS in White
evangelist Rick Warren's
church. "It has been an aspect
of ....homophobia that we
don't address this issue as
clearly as it needs to [be]."
Obama added that AIDS
is but one more symptom of
the larger, "interconnected"
problems we face. "The

which Clinton highlights on

The AIDS story is prima-

and ifs time for our leaders -
and our wannabe leaders to

either party has put forward a
plan for dealing with AIDS in
the United States, let alone a
plan to end the epidemic in
Black America. And no can-

This demand is a crucial

Conclave 2007-The Moles Fantastic Voyage
The Jacksonville Moles under the leadership of the chapter's pres-
ident Mrs. Madeline Scales-Taylor were off for their annual June ",
'trek' to The Moles National Conclave. This year the Conclave was
hosted by The Norfolk, VA Moles. And as always the organization's
Motto "Enjoy Yourself It's Later Than You Think" was the mind set -
for all. The theme for the 2007 Conclave was 'Fantastic Voyage' and
everything and I do mean everything, focused on the theme from attire
to events. In fact, members started planning their attire in February
when the Conclave/'Cruise' packets arrived.
The four day Conclave kicked off on Ports of Call on Thursday with ,
a Dinner Cruise on the Historic Elizabeth River aboard the Spirit of
Norfolk Cruise Ship where there was entertainment, dancing and din- .
ing; for the land lovers there was Apollo Night at the Captain's Cove. U
On Friday, there was shopping, meetings, golf, bowling, historic i
tours and the Captain's Welcome before sunset. In the evening there
was The Fantastic Voyage Beach Carnivale that culminated a beauti- .
ful day. Moles Gail Mathis and Janice Hice were among the local The Jacksonville Moles and Mules at the Thursday Night Social Event of the 2007Moles Conclave in Norfolk,
Bowling winners. Mules Carl Davis and Dr. Bill Cody were 2nd VA: Moles and Mules Betty and Carl Davis, Dr. Lois and Ernest Gibson, Sylvia and Warner Singleton, Betty

There was much rejoicing between the two ladies fol-

with a fabulous fashion show featuring fashions from
Lili's Boutique. I must add that the owners of this
boutique really know how to serve the customer.
They provided shuttle service to their boutique locat-

* Ammons In Charge at FAMU
Black Enrollment Milestone
Alachua County Profiling?
Florida & Georgia Blacks Can
Influence Presidential Elections
Michael Fauntroy, assistant professor of public policy at
George Mason University and author of "Republicans and
the Black Vote," analyzed the historical and conservative
view behind voter disenfranchisement particularly con-
cerning the African-American vote. In the Huffington Post
Fauntroy wrote: "African Americans and other minorities
around the country are having a difficult time voting 'and
being certain that their votes are counted."
That conservatives see the black vote as a sleeping giant
tin American politics is proven by the lengths to which they
go to Iock out of the s stem as many people as possible.
The Republican Party has spent millions in support of
purge programs and 'electoral integrity' schemes with the
only real purpose being to reduce the number of African
Americans that vote.
This money is spent because the party understands the
arithmetic of black political power and the disproportionate
impact African Americans can have in deciding who wins
presidential general election states such as Florida, Georgia,
Mississippi, and South Carolina."
to First 15,000
The Florida Parole
Commission has reviewed
more than 21,000 cases and
restored the voting rights of
15,500 people who could
not previously vote as a
result of a felony record.
Those whose rights were
not restored were due to
relocation frdm the state, a
re-arrest, outstanding resti-
tution fees and death,
according to the Associated
Press. In April the
Clemency Board ruled that
individuals with a non-vio-
lent criminal record could
vote after completing their
sentence. The state's
Department of Corrections
is loaning 100 employees a
week to the' Parole
Commission to speed up the
restoration process as Gov.
Charlie Crist hopes the
effort is completed before
the presidential primary.
Muslima Lewis, an
American Civil Liberties
Union of Florida attorney
who oversees the group's
voting rights and civil jus-
tice projects, said though
she's happy to see progress,
"15,500 is still a drop in the
bucket when you look at the
entire population of offend-
ers whose civil rights have
not been restored." More
than 1 million people are
disenfranchised in Florida.
Dr. James Ammons Takes Over at
FAMU With Probation First Issue
Florida A & M Univ-
ersity (FAMU) officials are
"working expeditiously" to
develop a response plan for
the university being placed
of probation by the
Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools.
"We believe that James
Ammons' experience with
SACS and resolving issues
at North Carolina Central
University will prove to be
invaluable as we move for-
ward to resolve these
issues," said Dr. Larry
Robinson, FAMU's chief
The University was
placed on probation on June
21. It will last for six
months. Dr. James H.
Ammons took the helm July
2 as the 10th president of
the historically Black uni-
versity promising to "give
my all" to put FAMU on a
new course of greatness.
"I think we have made
tremendous progress, but
we have away to go," said
Ammons, who once served
on the commission of col-
leges for SACS and has
served on 15 teams. "I have
a pretty good knowledge of
SACS and when an institu-
tion is ready."
SACS, a regional
accreditation agency\ for an

Black College Enrollment
in South Passes Milestone
For the first time ever in
the Southern states, blacks
are as well represented on
college campuses as they
are in the region's popula-
tion as a whole some-
thing not yet true of the
The milestone is noted in
a new fact book recently
released by the Southern
Regional Education Board,
a nonprofit 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 population.
The number represents
progress but it also has to be
seen in context. A major
contributing factor is the
South's rapidly growing
Hispanic population, which
has reduced the proportion
of the population that is,
black, and thereby made the
milestone easier to reach
And educators also
stressed that the number
should not obscure the per-
sistent achievement gaps
affecting blacks both in the
South and nationally. In par-
ticular, black enrollment
rates for college-age stu-
dents, while iimprirt in.', still
lag well behind those of
whites, as do the :riad.LIuli nii
rates of black .-ll.lige stu-
Wili a i'-,ll. ..,. degree
now almost a prerequisite'
for high-paying jobs, those
achievement gaps pose an
economic threat and the
South will be on the cutting
edge of that. In 2005 about
61 percent of public high
school graduates in the
South were white, the edu-
cation 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 trouble. We already are
in trouble, but we'll be in
more trouble seven or eight
years down the road."
Still, the report reflects
the reality that many more
Southern blacks are
enrolling in college. In those
states, about 1.1 million
black students were enrolled
in college in the fall of 2005,
52 "percent more than a
The increase has come
largely from new and
expanding public, tradition-
ally white universities and
two-year colleges rather
than from historically black
colleges, which for many
years shouldered nlcarl\ all
the burden of higher educa-
tion for Southern blacks.
Many of tlio.. schools still
ci\i-t, but their share of
black enrollment in the
region has slipped from 26
percent to 19 percent over
the last decade.
"We've removed a lot of
the barriers and accepted
that we will have to provide
higher levels of learning
support in the short term,"
said Erroll Davis, who over-
sees the 33 institutions in
the University System of
Georgia. He noted that
innonr students arrive bn

Blacks represent 31.4

Spike Lee's Latest Film Highlights
Black American Soldiers in WW!!
Filmmaker Spike Lee announced plans
July 3 to work on a movie about the struggle
against Nazi occupiers in Italy during WWII
that he hopes will highlight the contribution
of Black American soldiers who fought and
died to liberate Europe.
The film will spotlight the courage of
Black soldiers who, despite suffering dis-
crimination back home, offered a contribu-
tion that has so far gone largely unnoticed in
other Hollywood movies, Lee said at a pres-
entation of the project in Rome.
"We have Black people who are fighting
for democracy who at the same time are
classified as second-class citizens," he said.
"That is why I'd like to do a film to show
how these brave Black men, despite all the
hardship they were going through, still
pushed that aside and fought for the greater
Based on the novel Miracle at St. Anna
by James McBride, the film tells the story of
four Black American soldiers, all members
of the U.S. Army's all-Black 92nd "Buffalo

enemy lines in an Italian village in Tuscany
Filming is planned in Tuscany, Rome
and the United States, where the film begins
and ends, Lee said. Shooting is expected to
start by the beginning of 2008, according to
producer Roberto Cicutto. Cicutto also said
the movie will cost $45 million (euro33 mil-

between the soldiers and the villagers, some
of whom are partisans.

who, at 19, was an infantry soldier in the

Jogger with iPod hit by lightning, has serious burns and hearing problems
Boston, MA Here's a handy tip for joggers: If you think you might get caught in
a thunderstorm, leave your music player at home. Doctors at Vancouver General Hospital
in Canada said a 37-year-old jogger wearing an iPod was burned on his chest, neck and
face after the man and a nearby tree were struck by lightning in 2005. The burs traced
the path of the earphones, they said.
The patient's eardrums were ruptured and the tiny bones in his middle ears were dis-
located, the doctors wrote in a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine.

Should I Attend A. Historically Black College or University?
Choosing which col-

difficult decision for
anyone to make, but

American student is con-

torically black college or
university (HBCU), a
whole other set of family
and cultural issues are
There are many valid
reasons that favor one or
the other. Some are obvi-
ous differences. Parents
and their children have
to be honest with them-
selves and take a long,
hard look at the needs of
the student and how the
campus environment can
fulfill them. To help you
decide, here are some
questions to ask:
Do I know what's real-
ly important to me?
Look at the reasons
why you want a degree
and what you want to
achieve with it. Is the
choice to attend an
HBCU yours or you
family's? Do you have a
particular field of study
you want to pursue?

Protect Your Family During Mosquito Season
(Family Features) Just one is all it takes. One mosquito bite can transmit West Nile
virus or other diseases. One tick bite can result in Lyme disease. In 2006 the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 3,887 cases of West Nile virus in
the United States, resulting in 120 deaths. And according to the National Institute of
Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), more than 100,000 cases of Lyme disease
have been reported here.
Traditional insect repellents can be effective, but.the potential health risks-espe-
cially to children-have many parents thinking twice about slathering man-made
chemicals on their kids' clothing, arms, legs and faces. The American Academy of
Pediatrics cautions against using products containing DEET on children less than *
years of age. And even for older children, it recommends avoiding application of DEET
to their face and hands. Yet children are the ones most vulnerable to insect stinging and
biting because their immune systems have not fully developed.
Aware of the restriction of traditional insect repellents, researchers have long worked
to uncover safer alternatives to repellents that contain DEET. They have discovered an
all-natural, plant-based insect repellent called Geraniol that not only is a safer choice
but, in many instances, is more effective for repelling insects than DEET. A 17-year
study revealed that Geraniol, the active ingredient in BugBand insect repellent prod-
ucts, is safe for children and pets, and can be used around food. BugBand distributes
Geraniol-based insect repellent in several forms, including wristbands (for everyday
use), and pump spray and towelettes (for heavier-duty applications).
"With the growing risk of West Nile Virus and Lyme disease, going without protecd-
tion when you're outside simply isn't an option," says BugBand president Dan Ritter.
Dr. Kimberly Thompson, a specialist in risk analysis at the Harvard School of Public
Health in Cambridge, Mass., says that vigilance is required in taking precautions
"It is best to take a holistic approach to mosquito control," says Thompson. "This
includes taking physical measures to reduce breeding grounds and risk, using pest con-
trol products properly when needed, and working within local communities to ensure
civic leaders are providing education about West Nile Virus and protection from mos-
She recommends the following 10 tips to protect yourself and your loved ones from
mosquito bites and possible infection by West Nile Virus:
1. Make sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens. Repair or replace screens
that have tears or holes.
2. Use mosquito repellents on exposed skin whenever you are in an area where mos-
quitoes may be present. Repellents provide extra protection when exposed to mosqui-
toes and other disease-carrying insects.
3. Eliminate standing water, including clogged gutters, pool covers, empty wheel-
barrows and pools of water anywhere in the yard. Dispose of tin cans, plastic contain-
ers, ceramic pots or similar containers in which water may have accumulated. Be sure
to remove used tires, which are a common haven for mosquito breeding.
4. Remind or help neighbors eliminate breeding sites on their properties.
5. Wear long sleeves, long pants, socks and closed shoes when outdoors.
6. Encourage local officials to treat small ponds with larvacide and consider stock-
ing larger.ponds with larva-eating fish as additional control.
7. Ensure that organizers of summertime activities for youth and the elderly-such
as summer camps, park and recreation centers, and senior centers-are proactivelxi
using pest-control strategies and products.
8. Beware of the times when mosquitoes are most active, typically at dusk and dawn,
April through October, and avoid prime mosquito locations including marshes and wet-
9. Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas and hot tubs. Keep them
covered when they aren't in use.
10. Learn more about your community's mosquito-control program. Ensure that local
community leaders are protecting the public through integrated mosquito management

on television make
you eat more?
The question is cen-
rral to the debate about
\whether food marketing
to children is fueling the
S childhood obesity epi-
demic. while e T\ has
long been linked with
i-nactiviy and poor eat-
ing habits, a number of
health groups say food-industry advertising of fatty and sugary products
to kids is making kids overeat. Now, new research from Britain supports
the claim, showing that the type of advertising kids see on television can
make a dramatic difference in how much food they eat afterward.
In two similar studies, researchers in Liverpool compared the effects
Lpf television advertising on the eating habits of-152 kids between the,
ages of 5 and 11. In both studies, the kids watched 10 ads followed by a
cartoon. In one session, the kids saw ads for toys before they watched a
video. But in another session, the toy ads were replaced by food adver-
tising commonly aired with children's and family programming. After
both viewings, held two weeks apart, the kids were allowed to snack as
much as they wanted from a table of low-fat and high-fat snacks, includ-
ing grapes, cheese-flavored rice cakes, chocolate buttons and potato
After the 5-to-7-year-old kids saw the food ads, they ended up eat-
ing 14% to 17% more calories than after the toy ads, according to a
study published this month in the medical journal Appetite. But the
changes were even more dramatic among the 9-to-11-year-olds. They
ate from 84% to 134% more calories after being exposed to food ads
-ompared with their snack intake after watching toy advertising, accord-
ing to research presented in April at the European Congress on Obesity
meeting in Budapest.
Notably, in the study of older children, kids who were overweight or
obese not only ate more after viewing food ads, but they were more like-
ly to eat sugary and high-fat foods. "This suggests that overweight and
obese children are more susceptible to the messages they are exposed to
through food advertising on television," says Emma J. Boyland, an
author on both studies and researcher at the University of Liverpool's
Human Ingestive Behaviour Laboratory.
Next week, the Federal Trade Commission will hold a forum on the
issue of food marketing to kids and whether more regulation is needed.
"-ihe agency has found that 22% of the ads kids see are for food products.
Food companies have long -claimed that food advertising is about
building brand loyalty so a child will ask for Cheerios or Fruit Loops
while shopping with mom. But the Liverpool test showed that kids will
eat more of any type of food after seeing food ads on TV. None of the
foods on the table were included in the ads the kids watched.
Last month, Kellogg Co., which makes Fruit Loops, said it would
phase out advertising its products to children under age 12 unless the
foods meet specific nutrition guidelines. The company made the changes
after a lawsuit threat by the Boston-based Campaign for a Commercial-
Free Childhood and the food lobby group Center for Science in the
Public Interest. Walt Disney Co. has said it will only allow its characters
to be used in the advertising and marketing of healthy foods. And Kraft
Foods Inc. in 2005 also adopted nutritional guidelines for food ad\ ertis-
ing aimed at children.
The fact that a visual stimulus would prompt us to eat even if we're
not hungry makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint, says David A.
Levitsky, nutrition and psychology professor at Cornell Universi\- in'
Ithaca. N.Y.. \\ho is conducting a study this suLmmer measuring the food-
ad effect on adults. "From an evolutionary standpoint, if you see it you
better eat it because you don't kllow when it's not going to be there any-
more." says Dr. Levitskv. "-What the food companies have learned very
well is hox\ to take advantage of that process and get us to eat more by
show ing us food."
Because most parents can't monitor every ad their child is exposed
to. one solution is to simply make sure your child only has access to
healthy snacks after %watching TV. That way, a post-TV binge won't do
much damage. Notably. in the Liverpool studies, kids' consumption of
healthy foods. such as grapes and low-fat snacks, also jumped after see-
ing food ads.

the whole truth in a relationship. My husband has the ten-

with another man. I understand that people have trust and
free reign in their relationships but this wasn't normal. She
was holding his hand and acting as if they were in love.
I've been asked to be the best man in their wedding and now I'm stuck in this situa-

Dear Best Man:
You should go ahead and spill the beans so that you and others can possibly save some
money. If you spend money on attire for the wedding and the bride is already cheat-
ing, they'll be headed for divorce soon. With true friendship comes loyalty and you
should do what a woman would do. Call your friend or take him to lunch and tell him
what you saw. Your conscience will be clear and he has the opportunity to make a deci-
sion and keep it moving.

excitement is gone and my husband is different than when he was a boyfriend. He
always tells me that he gave me what I wanted and to move on to something else. The
dates, gifts and spontaneous things have disappeared and it feels like I got a lot of
work in return. Is this normal for a new bride or am I setting my expectations too high?
Sad New Bride (Oklahoma City, OK)
Dear Sad Bride:
You wanted to be married when you wanted to be married and your boyfriend went
along with your demands to make you happy. Instead of pressuring him, you should've
let things flow and allowed him to get comfortable with the idea before taking the leap.
You can renew the spark in your relationship by taking the lead with creativity, a lot
of love and focus on goals and.the future. Keep your husband involved and you'll see
him coming around'slowly but surely.

Faith of the Fearless
By Ester Davis
The first person to cross the United States in an air- "
plane was deaf. Cal Rodgers, a student of the Wright .
Brothers, reportedly had about 90 minutes of flight
training. He left New York on Sept. 17, 1911, and
arrived in California on Dec. 10, 1911, in a biplane
called the "Vin Fiz," which looked very similar to the rickety wood-frame and fab-
ric plane of the Wright Brothers. Rodgers, sitting on the front with no protection 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, hesitation, 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 recently. 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 fam-
ily. However, the thought does not escape the amount of faith required to be a cor-
dial 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, crash-
ing cars, best fight, legal racing. The World StuntAwards 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 masters behind the scenes.) Evel Knievel wore us all out with his high-
ly 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
In our daily lives, we see many, many examples of the fearless and their faith. The
fearless 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 it.
Worry looks around. Sorry looks back. Faith looks up. What's your pleasure?

What Can You Do About Osteoarthritis?
Every year, an estimated 2 million Americans undergo arthroscopy on their
knees, shoulders, and on many other joints. The results, however, depend to a great
extent on the patient's observance of certain tips and guidelines, both before and
after surgery. But, what should you know about arthroscopy, and how can you pre-
pare for this important operation? The American Arthritis Society has compiled
some useful and practical tips for self-care, and made them available on the Society's
website. Developed with the help of some of the world's leading arthroscopy spe-
cialists, each tip is easy to follow and can be helpful in preparing for your operation.
These and many more suggestions regarding osteoarthritis can be viewed online at:

his 'father since he was 5
Only this was different.
This time, it was
Dimetrious getting ready to
run, as a 10-year-old, in
.something called a junior
Sdragster. But the stares were
was the only African-
American in a field of about
50 junior drag racers.
SWhen Dimetrious would
win, or outrun another jun-
ior racer, he'd sometimes
get coldly greeted by a turn
of the back when he extend-
ed his hand. The Morrises
could see fingers pointing at
them or hear racial remarks.
After beating more expen-
sive cars, and being on the
circuit for 3 years now,
that's all changed.
As a 13-year-old on the
super pro 13-17 (year-olds)
circuit, Dimetrious has
begrudgingly earned hand-
shakes and hellos from the
very racers who once
ignored him. He's currently
in eighth place, out of 32
racers in the Junior Dragster
Northeast Division out of
Atco (N.J.) Raceway. The
top five receive a winner's
jacket at the end of the sea-
son, which runs from March
until November, competing
mostly on weekends.
"It is a complete reversal
from the first time I got in
the track," recalls
Dimetrious, who is home-
schooled and lives in
Yeadon. "Everyone I've
faced the last 2 years, they'll
shake my hand. I never got
angry over what happened.
My opinion is people will
think what they want to
think. As long I'm able to
race and win, I don't let that
other stuff bother me. But
the respect is there now. If I
lose, I might be mad, but I'll
shake someone's hand."
Dimetrious has never
been afraid of going fast. It
might have made his mother,
Madeline, a little nervous at
first, but she adjusted.
"You can't have any
fear," said Linwood, 52,
who was a SEPTA manager
for 12 years. "Some people
try to learn not to have fear,
but with Dimetrious, proba-
bly going with me to the
track all of the time, you
watch someone go by at
300 mph, it's a blink of the
eye. There was no fear of
the speed. It's the drag-rac-
ing life. I just wanted to
open the doors and see if he
wanted to pursue this. He
likes it. He's always liked
Airplane Crash Scene in Sanford, Florida
her Criminal Law class convened at 6:30
p.m., administrators and professors were
there to break the news and express condo-
lences to Joseph's classmates.
The plane was carrying Bruce Kennedy,
a Daytona Beach-area plastic surgeon who
was married to a NASCAR executive; and
Michael Klemm, a NASCAR pilot.
It all started when
Dimetrious saw a junior
dragster on display.at a race
he was attending with
Linwood. He bugged his
father until Linwood gave
in and bought him a used
junior dragster for $4,000.
Racing junior dragsters
can be pricey. Dimetrious'
newest car, which Linwood
bought used last year, cost
$7,500. New junior drag-
sters can run around
$15,000 to $25,000. The
required NHRA license fee
is $50. Junior dragsters run
on racing alcohol, which
costs $5 per gallon.
The Morrises succeed
despite some obstacles.
They travel with the car on a
flatbed, while most com-
petitors travel with mobile
campers or enclosed trailers
to protect the car.
It's what Linwood can
afford on what he receives
on workman's compensa-
tion, although it's never got-
ten in the way. Dimetrious
has run everywhere from
Atco to Englishtown, N.J.,
to Cecil County, Md.
"The bottom line is that
Dimetrious is having fun,"
Linwood said. "When he
was 12, we found another
used car and we've been
pretty lucky with it so far.
The motor runs well. He's
been really flying around
with it. But it is tough. We
make a lot of requests and

stickers from sponsors all

will. come forward and
maybe help out with more
of the costs."
In the meantime,
Dimetrious keeps running -

Cats win in Key West Hemingway's six-toed cats may stay.
Key West, FL City officials have sided with Erest'Hemingway's former home
and its celebrated six-toed felines in its cat fight with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The Key West City Commission exempted the home from a city law prohibiting more
than four domestic animals per household. About 50 cats live there.
The house has been locked in a dispute with the USDA, which claims the museum is
an "exhibitor" of cats and needs a special license, a claim the home disputes.
The cats are descendants of a six-toed cat given as a gift to the writer in 1935.
The Star July 14, 2007
All Star game
Barry Bonds has made it official. Bonds, who at 42
years, 11 months, 16 days became the oldest All-Star
starter has announced that he will not pursue the record
of being the oldest All Star player. That record is held by
Satchel Paige who was elected as an All Star at 49.
Cal Ripken, the honorary Captain of the American
League team, speaks \ ith a sense of authority when he
talks about durability. Ripken marveled at Giants short-
stop Omar Vizquel who is 40.
"It doesn't surprise me that he's playing at 40 years
old because he takes care of himself," said Ripken, "In
my opinion, he's one of the best shortstops in my era, so
I would certainly consider himself a Hall of Famer."
If someone should knows about taking care of them-
selves, it's Cal Ripken who played in 2,632 consecutive
games, a record that is likely to stand for as long as any-
one can imagine.
Chasing The Record
To avoid a scenario where Barry Bonds is booed
when he breaks Hank Aaron's record on the road, the
Giants are hoping the blast comes in San Francisco,
where Barry is still cheered despite his connection to the
BALCO steroids scandal.
In 1974, the Braves tried to keep Aaron out of the
lineup the season's first series in Cincinnati to make sure
he would break the Babe's record in Atlanta, but then-
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn ordered Aaron to play two
of three games. Aaron homered in his first at-bat to tie
Ruth and set the record once the Braves returned to
Bud Selig says he trusts the Giants will not manipu-
late the schedule to make sure Bonds hits his record
homer at home. Bruce Bochy, however, has all but
admitted that he'll try to push for a situation in which
Bonds hits the record-breaker at home.
Kuhn attended the game when Hank tied Ruth's
record, but he was a no-show for the record-breaker and
was heavily criticized for it.
Selig said he still hasn't decided if he'll be on hand for

When play finally resumed, Bartoli raced
through her serve and caught the eye with a
precise lob which left Williams stranded.
But she conceded three break points in
the sixth with Williams smashing a vicious
backhand to claim the third.
Serving for the set, the American ended
Bartoli's resistance with an unstoppable
serve to take the set 6-1 and the title.
Williams admitted the victory was made
all the sweeter by her season-long struggle
with a wrist injury that has affected her
She said: "I have so many people to
thank. My sister Serena inspired me by win-
ning the Australian Open at the start of the
year. I wanted to be like her.
"My mum helped me out in the first
round and my family knows what I went
through when I was off with the injury.
"It was a long road back with some tough
losses to take. But itwas great to be here and
Marion was a really tough opponent.
"It's so exciting to win four titles. I
always believed I could do it, but to actually'
do it is something different completely."
Williams was delighted to be the first
women's champion to receive equal prize
money at Wimbledon.
She said: "Growing up I always said how
much I wanted to win Wimbledon and it was
so important to get equal prize money.
"Billie Jean King did so much to get

And the drama continued.

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.

Victor Fields Delivers
The Vocal Goods!
By Rych McCain,
Photo: Courtesy of The
It is an early
and I scurry to get to
a breakfast interview
with vocalist Victor
Fields at the popular
Hotel in Universal
City, California. His
Roberson, who is also
a nationally noted
columnist, is one of
the few people who
can get this hardened
"night owl," up and
out that early. Fields
had just completed a
packed out stand at
B.B. King's Club on
the world famous
Universal City Walk
at Universal Studios.
We all meet, order
breakfast and talk.
Fields was in town
to promote his new
CD Thinking of You,
which features a
guest performance of
ist Richard Elliot and
two original compo-
sitions by noted jazz
artist Jeff Lorber. The
album also contains
some standards and
by Fields himself. In
this era of disposable
popular music with
month" idols, Fields
is a seasoned veteran
who has seriously
studied his craft and
sings songs with style
and substance while
striving to create a sig-
nificant body of work
that will stand the test
Fields was born in
Brooklyn, New York
and reared in
W o r ce s t e r
his mother exposed
him to classical, blues
and pop music. She
was also a singer and a
pianist. After attending
Bowdoin College as a
major, Fields relocated
to San Francisco
where he built a suc-
cessful business. In
1997 a mutual friend
introduced him to
Kashif. This led to
their collaboration on
his debut album
"Promise," which was
released on his inde-
pendent label Regina
Records (named after
his wife). Two more
CD's followed with
Billboard chart suc-
We mention real
singers vs. the video
type vocal mimes ear-
lier; do they help
impede what Fields
does? He responses,
"In a way it does, but
the way I look at it,
there is enough air for
everybody. If I go out-
side and breathe twen-
ty times and you
breathe once, there is
still enough air if you
want to take some
more breaths. It's real-
ly unfair to the artists
because I come from a
standpoint of old
school where the song
makes the sale. I think
they don't get the
opportunity to develop
the way maybe they
could have and maybe
they could become
"That's the thing for
them,", he continues,
"but from a pure enter-
tainment value the
public is not standing
up complaining about
it, they are watching
the videos, buying the
CD's and purchasing
the tickets so they're
being entertained but I
tell you man, if you
can get in and get it,
however you can get
it, bless your heart!"
From a strictly per-
sonal view, Fields
says, "I'm in it for a
whole different thing.
I mean I have a
lifestyle that most
musicians are aspir-
ing to have. I worked
first, music came sec-
ond. So I'm into it for
all of those other
things. "Fields honed
his talent via vocal
lessons, family train-
ing and paying dues
on the local club cir-
cuit. Now he is reap-
ing the benefits in the
form of record sales
and world wide tours.
Check out Fields
when he comes your
way, especially if you
appreciate the real
thing in vocal presen-

Racism As Usual In
The NAACP is concerned
(as always), with Hollywood's
lack of commitment to diversi-
ty. Despite lip service to the
contrary, Hollywood is still
woefully negligent when it
comes to promoting talent of
color to the networks and pro-
duction studios. The recently
announced fall TV season and a
soft summer film lineup cer-
tainly indicates a disconnect on
some level when it comes to
talent of color says Gil
Robertson IV, president of the
African American Film Critics
In an effort to quell a grow-
ing storm -of protest, the
NAACP, under the direction of
interim president Dennis
Courtland Hayes, recently
requested employment data
from all of the major talent
agencies in Hollywood that
will be included as part of the
organizations follow up to its
2003 landmark "Out of Focus,
Out of Sync" report. The major
agencies in Hollywood have
long failed to employ agents of
color and this environment has
created insensitivity to the
importance of diversity at the
networks and throughout the
entertainment industry, says
Be sure to watch for a new
AT&T commercial featuring a
group of children and teens that
include Aree Davis, Kylee
Russell and Khamani Griffin.
Yes, you guessed it! They are
from Rych McCain's family of
Child/Teen Artists. Also check
out young Kwesi Boakye who
is appearing in a new Burger
Hit vocal group "Soul for
Real," ("Candy Rain" and
"Every Little Thing You
Do"), has matured and
regrouped. Their new single
"One Man," featuring
Jadakiss has been released.
Their album The Unknown
will drop in November. From
the same "Tsunami Group"
PR camp, R&B singing/act-
ing ladies man "TQ' also has
a new single, "In My Lap. "
He also has four movies
coming out this year.
Talk To Me stars Don
Cheadle, Chiwetel Ejiofor,
Taraji P. Henson, Cedric
The Entertainer, Mike Epps,
Martin Sheen and Vondie
Curtis Hall. It is directed by
Kasi Lemmons. The story is
by Michael Genet and
screenplay by Michael
Genet and Rick Famuyiwa.
It was produced by Mark
Gordon, Sidney Kimmel,
Joe Fries and Josh
McLaughlin. This is an
embellished version of the
real life radio DJ Ralph
Waldo "Petey" Greene, Jr.,
who was one of the outspo-
ken originators of talk radio
back in the 60's Black Power
era in Washington DC. He
was managed by Dewey
Hughes at WOL-AM which
went on to become the flag-
ship station of Radio One
that his former wife Kathy
Petey Greene was a Black
Afrikan ex-con and ex-drug
addict who told it like it was
over the air. His in-your-face
style developed a huge lis-
tenership in the DC radio
market and later a national
TV market where he was a
local Emmy Award winner.
Don Cheadle plays Greene to
the hilt. Taraji P. Henson as
his ghetto sassy girlfriend
Vernell really shows her

death in 1998 was ruled an
accident, but new evidence is.

Wassup cont'd from D-4
range as an actress.
She goes from a ghetto
hootchie to a mature
responsible woman by
the end of the film.
Ced The Entertainer is
.ln ever smooth DJ as
the Night Hawk.
Martin Sheen plays an
excellent station owner
Chiwetel Ejiofor was a
Hughes rounded out by
the ove'r-the-hill DJ
Sunny Jim played by
Vondie Curtis Hall. If
you are a nostalgic
60's buff or lived dur-
ing that time, this
movie is for you.
Brittany Snow, Taylor
Parks, Zac Efron,
Elijah Kelley, Allison
Janney, Jerry Stiller,
Paul Dooley and intro-
ducing Nikki Blonsky.
This is a feel good
musical about a TV
dance show that even-
grated during the early
60's era. The music
and choreography .is
"A-plus" and the act-
ing is as good. The
had several roles filled
by unknown actors
including the star
Nikki Blonsky who
made a very convinc-
ing debut. This is an
evening that the entire
family can enjoy.
