New Foundation by Pastors To Renovate and
Upgrade Restlawn and Greenwood Cemeteries
Pastor' Harold Rollison and
Pastor R. L. Gundy are continu-
ous workers in the Jacksonville
area, trying to assure civil rights
and economic parity. They knew
that Restlawn and Greenwood
Cemeteries were not being kept
in a respectable manner but never
consider they could form a non-
profit foundation to receive own-
ership of the property, thereby
providing the service the commu-
nity need and deserve.
In April, they were able to acquire both
,properties from the absentee owners and are
now putting together the necessary means to
bring both cemeteries in line with the best.
They said that both properties need a lot of
work, specifically Greenwood but they are
comfortable through community support, they
will both be "first class" within the next year.
The foundation established is Southside
Christian Charity. By placing the cemeteries
under the leadership and ownership of a non-
profit entity, they feel comfortable that they
will last and develop in a fitting manner.
Their plan is to bring back pride and integrity
to the facilities by cleaning and providing the
renovation needed. They may seek volunteers
to help with these cleanup goals.
Jacksonville will, in a short time, be again
proud to support and take their love ones to
Restlawn and Greenwood for their final rest-
ing place, a place that now belongs to the

Newark Is On Right Track With Cory Booker
President and CEO of the National Urban League
CLARA FRANCES McLAUGHLIN
MAY E. FORD
BETTY ASQUE DAVIS
By most accounts,
Newark Mayor Cory Booker
is an imposing figure a for-
mer All-American tight end
for Stanford University who
stands well over 6 foot.
But the tales currently
swirling around Booker are
so tall that they could easily
surpass his formidable
stature. Just read The New
York Times, which recently
ran a story chronicling the
backlash being experienced
by the mayor barely one
year into his term.
There are rumors circulat-
ing around town and across
the Internet that he's not real-
ly African-American, he's a
ger and he's using the may-
oral office as a stepping stone
to the Oval Office. They are
silly at best.
After Stanford, Booker
could have carved a fairly
lucrative career out for him-
self in the National Football
League. He could have had
his choice of high-paying
jobs in an investment bank
or a high-flying law firm -
after he graduated from Yale
Instead, the mayor, who
was raised in Bergen County,
picked public service and
started a nonprofit tenant
rights organization in one of
the nation's most troubled
and poorest cities. ,
The city Booker now
leads isn't too far from where
he grew up -- the mostly
white Harrington Park the
son of two social activists and
IBM executives who success-
fully sued a real estate agent
for refusing to sell them a
house in the suburb.
But his suburban upbring-_
ing and Ivy League education
have aroused suspicion
among Newarkers already
leery of outsiders.
"Newarkers have this
sense that their city was aban-
doned and that the only peo-
ple who benefited lived out-
side the city," he told the New
York Times, which had run
an ongoing series of stories
on his administration. "They
have this belief that these
people are going to come
back from over the hills and
When he first arrived,
Booker moved into the city's
most notorious housing proj-
ects Brick Towers, outside
of which drug dealers openly
hawked their wares. He
organized his fellow tenants
in a letter-writiig campaign
that led to a lawsuit against
the management company,
which paved the way for
greater police protection.
Some of his critics have
dismissed his eight years liv-
ing in public housing as a
publicity stunt. But, as he

a..~ !^ Ww-a-m j.'inm
pointed out in a 2006 New
York Times story, "Stunts are
usually short-term ... They
usually don't last three win-
ters without heat and hot
Upon his neighbors' insis-
tence, Booker in 1998 suc-
cessfully ran for a city coun-
cil seat, an upset over a four-
term incumbent. During his
tenure, he frequently served
as the council's lone vote on
many controversial issues.
In 2002, he ran unsuc-
cessfully for mayor against
controversial 20-year incum-
bent Sharpe James, who
decided not to run in 2006.
That opened the door for
Booker who cruised to victo-
ry with 72 percent of the
vote. With the electoral hon-
eymoon over, the mayor has
been forced to get down to
the business of reconciling
the promise of reform that
helped elect him with the
grim reality that is Newark.
Booker set the bar high,
inflating expectations of a
city that was already short on
hope. With high expectations
comes the prospect of disap-
pointment when overnight
miracles -don't occur. His
own mission statement is
ambitious to say the least:
"To be America's leading
urban city in safety, prosperi-
ty and nurturing of family
The mayor concedes that
governing Newark is far from
easy. "Things come at you
1,000 miles an hour, and
much of the time you're deal-
ing with chaos," he told the
New York Times recently.
"You can easily get distracted
by issues that are not cen-
The old guard that lost
clout with James' departure is
now stirring up trouble at a
time when Newark needs it
the least. The mayor's plan to
cut the city's workforce has
even prompted a "Recall
What is for certain is that
he could have chosen a much
less-arduous and less-exas-
perating route to political
superstardom. It's out of love
that Booker has taken on the
challenge not personal
So what if Mayor Booker
hasn't transformed Newark
into a shining beacon of hope
for urban. America in a mere
12 months? Does that mean
he deserves to be recalled or
undermined by rumor and
innuendo? I would think not.
At our Economic
Empowerment Tour town
hall in Newark in June,
Booker delivered an impas-
sioned defense of his admin-
istration's first year that could
have converted the most cyn-
ical into true believers.
Newark's resurgence will
require time, patience and
most of all, faith. There will
be no overnight miracle. All
I'm asking of the city's
African-Americans is to give
Cory a chance. If they give
up now, Newark will only
sink deeper into the abyss of
urban despair. ,

No one wants to talk about
death and funerals. Too depress-
ing. Unfortunately, death is a fact
of life and there simply is no way
to avoid it. For indeed there is a
"time to be born and a time to.
You may want a traditional
funeral service with visitation
and a member of the clergy con-
ducting services at a church or a
funeral home. Would you want
an open or closed casket? Maybe
you want a special friend to do
the eulogy or family members to
read scripture passage or poetry.
Any favorite hymns?
First, you should shop
around and talk to a few funeral
directors. Yes, let your fingers do

Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth bur-
ial, a cemetery plot should be
purchased; if above ground, a
mausoleum crypt. If cremation is
the choice, plan disposition of
the ashes. Do you want them
stored in a columbarium niche or
buried? Maybe you prefer to
have your ashes scattered?
An option some people take
is to donate organs and tissues to
a medical school (have a donor
card and check on requirements).
If you would rather have a
memorial service express that
wish. That means a service in the
funeral home or a church where
the body is not present. A com-
mon misconception is that when
the body is cremated you don't
hold a funeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

It's A Family Reunion
Reunions usually take years to plan. Not so for my
cousin Ms. Kim Hunter, Staten Island, NY, daughter of
the late Ms. Florence Jackson and granddaughter of the
late Herbert and Mrs. Juross Christopher Jackson.
Cousin Kim planned the family reunion for the descen-
dants and extended family of her Jackson ancestors
through regular conference calls connecting her cousins
in Georgia, Orlando and Jacksonville. She even had a
PayPal account set up for each of us to register and pay.
Now that's coordination!
The reunion kicked off at her Uncle Peter Jackson's
palatial Springfield home with a bountiful buffet that
included a 'Jackson Family Reunion' cake by Mr.
On Saturday morning and early afternoon there was
a cookout where Cousin Matt Thompson was the 'grill
master.' He stepped aside for the Chef at Arielle's
Restaurant on Saturday evening. And I must give a
'Shout Out' for the Chef and the live entertainment there.
The food was fabulous and so was the music. The fami-
Sly danced the night away after the scrumptious meal!
Sunday began with early services at Bethel Baptist
Institutional Church followed by brunch at the River
What a wonderful time we all had thanks to our
cousin Kim and her supporting cast of cousins. Plans are
already underway for 2008!!

Grapefruit & Breast Cancer
Florida is the world's largest producer of grapefruit.
Linked to Breast Cancer
While we are being told that eating lots
of fruit is one of the keys to good health,
there is a new study that indicates the ever
popular Grapefruit may have some bad risks
for some folks.
A study of 50,000 post-menopausal
women found eating just a quarter of a
grapefruit daily raised the risk by up to 30%.
The fruit is thought to boost levels of
oestrogen the hormone associated with a
higher risk ofihe disease, the British Journal
of Cancer reported.
But the researchers and other .
experts said more research was still

Previous studies have shown
that a molecule called cytochrome is
involved in metabolising oestrogen hor-
And grapefruit may boost blood oestro-
gen levels by inhibiting this molecule,
allowing the hormones to build up.
The researchers found that in women
who ate at least a quarter of a grapefruit
daily, levels of oestrogen were higher.
They said: "It is well established that
oestrogen is associated with breast cancer
"Therefore, if grapefruit intake affects
oestrogen metabolism leading to higher cir-
culating levels, then it is biologically plausi-
ble that regular intake of grapefruit would
increase a woman's risk of breast cancer."
And they said this was the first time a
commonly eaten food had been linked to an
increased risk of breast cancer in older
However, they warned that more
research was needed to confirm the findings
which may have been affected because they
only took into account intake of the fruit, but
not grapefruit juice.
Breast cancer accounts for almost a third
of all cancers in women, and previous
lifestyle factors linked to the disease include
drinking alcohol and being overweight.
Dr Joanne Lunn, a nutrition scientist at
the British Nutrition Foundation said: "This
is an interesting study of a large group of
post-menopausal women whose diet and

Florida's Grapefruit Production
Florida is the major U.S. grapefruit pro-
ducer. In a typical season, Florida's produc-
tion accounts for about 80 percent of the
U.S. total. Florida's grapefruit production is
concentrated along the mid-eastern coastal
counties of Saint Lucie and Indian River, as
well as Polk County in central Florida and
Hendry County in southwest Florida. With
Florida's production averaging 2 million
tons a year, it is the world's largest producer

Gasoline Prices continue to climb in Florida
Washington, DC Since last week the average price of gas in Florida, has jumped
by 8.5 cents per gallon.
"The U.S. Department of Energy's recent weekly report indicates higher th n expect-

Proenza hearing may stir up new storm in congress
Miami, FL The weather in the hurricane zone remains mild, but the storm in the
hurricane center is about to intensify again.
A congressional subcommittee has scheduled a hearing Thursday on the management
crisis at the National Hurricane Center and expects to hear testimony from former direc-
tor Bill Proenza and the supervisor who ousted him.
Though they are set to testify at different times, the hearing could produce a good bit
of heat between Proenza, who lost his job after criticizing his bosses and alienating much
of his staff, and Conrad C. Lautenbacher, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, who lowered the boom on Proenza last week.

Marines in Iraq told to
"Crank up the Violence"
A corporal testifying in a court-martial
said Marines in his unit began routinely
beating Iraqis after officers ordered them to
"crank up the violence level."
Cpl. Saul H. Lopezromo testified
Saturday at the murder trial of Cpl. Trent D.
"We were told to crank up the violence
level," said Lopezromo, testifying for the
When a juror asked for further explana-
tion, Lopezromo said: "We beat people, sir."
Within weeks of allegedly being scolded,
seven Marines and a Navy corpsman went
out late one night to find and kill a suspect-
ed insurgent in the village of Hamdaniya
near the Abu Ghraib prison. The Marines
and corpsman were from 2nd Platoon, Kilo
Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Regiment.
Lopezromo said the suspected insurgent
was known to his neighbors as the "prince of
jihad," and had been arrested several times
Sand later released by the Iraqi legal system.
Unable to find him, the Marines and
corpsman dragged another man from his
house, fatally shot him, and then planted an
AK-47 assault rifle near the body to make it
appear he had been killed in a shootout,
according to court testimony.
Four Marines and the corpsman, initially
charged with murder in the April 2006
killing, have pleaded guilty to reduced
'charges and been given jail sentences rang-
ing from 10 months to eight years. Thomas,
25, from St. Louis, Missouri, pleaded guilty
but withdrew his plea and is the first defen-
dant to go to court-martial.
Lopezromo, who was not gart of the
squad on its late-night mission, said he saw
nothing wrong with what Thomas did.
"I don't see it as an execution, sir," he
told the judge. "I see it as killing the

Jackie Brown Continued from A-1
Jacquelyne Brown began her political career in 2003 after a newly elected
mayor fired Jacksonville's black fire chief. She had just gone through a series of
personal challenges and vowed that if God would permit her to get out of bed
and help her change what was happening in this city she would be the one who
would make a difference. The following day after attending church Jacquelyne
bought the Sunday paper and read about an upcoming city meeting on minority
issues and decided to attend that meeting. From thereon she thus felt empow-
ered to speak out about injustice to minorities.
Jackie was a very unselfish person as evident of her fighting until death, and
not telling anyone about her sickness. Many remember her incident at City
Council meeting when she dressed as Aunt Jamima but they did not understand
her message was to try to get the council to understand how minorities felt they
felt about them.
Another sign of her unselfishness is when she chained herself to the gates to
prevent young children from exposing themselves to an ash site.
Other indications of her love for people and her unselfishness is the work she
did for those in the construction industry and the many organizations that she
founded or belonged to, or volunteered to help.
Jackie was affiliated with more than 28 organizations, 16 at the time of her too
early death. They included such organizations as Movement for Economic
Justice, Jacksonville Coalition of African-American Contractors Association,
Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Democratic Women, Concerned Tax
Payers, National Black Caucus, Emanuel Missionary Baptist Church, ACORN,
Lincoln Villa Neighborhood Association, One Hundred Black Women, Sherwood
Forest Community.Association, State Licensed General Contractor and State
S Licensed Underground Utility Contractor, Paxon Middle School PTA, Chamber
of Commerce, NAACP, and many more.
Jackie Brown was a born leader but living in poverty as a child and being the
oldest daughter, and third oldest of ~ine children, she aspired for more. After
college, she worked as an administrator for $5.00 an hour, learned about business
and took over her father's struggling business. She was able to see how racism
played a part in the business world and work to change what she called, the
"good ole boy system and racism.
She was able to realize God's power as she got older. She said that "there is
more love in the people in Jacksonville than hate." The people must respect each
other as human beings and embrace one another as e all strive for a brighter
future. She decided to run for mayor of Jacksonville and stated, "I am a person
who fights for change and equality... to raise the bar in education, health care,
quality of life, housing, the criminal justice system, race relations... fight for jus-
tice and equality for everyone."
Her quote from there Bible was from the Book of James, James 1: 2-8.
Jackie Brown, many loved you and feel alone without you, said one of the ladies
she mentored. "Who is going to replace Jackie Brown?" She truly tried to repre-
sent the people all of the people.
Commentary JACKIE WILL BE MISSED
Jackie Brown was a strong-willed, loving, passionate woman who championed the cause
of working people, the exploited and the disenfranchised. She successfully ran a small con-
struction business and advocated for the cause of minority-owned businesses while serv-
ing as a valuable role model for other young women.
Jackie passed away on Sunday, July 15 from breast cancer. When will our society begin to
clean up and adequately regulate the myriad of toxic chemicals (many untested) that perme-
ate our environment and our bodies. These substances alter endocrine function, damage our
immune systems and have caused cancer rates to skyrocket in America.
Ms. Jackie Brown will be sorely missed in this community. My deepest condolences go out
to her family, friends and all those touched by her work.
Jackie spoke up loud and proud against an insidious, pervasive and entrenched status quo
of racism in Jacksonville that often gets expressed in this modem era through either neglect
and/or a lack of funding an economic lynching rather than the physical lynchings of
days.gone by. Both types of lynchings disenfranchise, damage families and can kill.,
Jackie challenged a city that allocated multi-millions in corporate welfare for large private
companies new to town, but dragged its heels for years on cleaning up and providing com-
pensation to longtime Black residents in toxic "ash site" neighborhoods.
She used her physical body and her deep love for justice and her people to picket city hall
to redress legitimate grievances of discrimination and disenfranchisement against
Jacksonville's Black communities.
After several years of activism, Jackie's message was still being largely ignored by the city.
Out of frustration, she dressed as Aunt Jemima in a satirical move of political theatre to
challenge a complacent city hall which had for too-long neglected or been hostile to affir-
mative action measures necessary to overturn a history of white privilege and preference in
city-funded construction contracts.
The city responded with a callous, unnecessary, freedom-robbing arrest of Ms. Brown and
a banishment from council meetings that was ruled illegal and a violation of her rights by a
federal judge. She was certainly owed an apology by the City Council which she never
Jackie ran for mayor against overwhelming odds and received a very respectable 25% of
the vote with miniscule campaign funds against a wealthy entrenched mayor who represent-
ed the interests of the rich, the privileged and the corporate. Mayor Peyton arrogantly dis-
honored himself by not even showing up for a televised mayoral candidate's debate on
Jackie was a perfect role model for young activists with her commitment and challenge to
make Jacksonville a better place for ALL it's residents. Who will now step up to the plate
to try to fill Jackie's shoes and carry on her worthy struggles?
I was proud to call Jackie a friend. May her spirit live on in the hearts and minds of those
who loved her and in the actions of those who would continue her valuable work for justice
and equality. We've still got a long way to go!
Thank you, Ms. Jackie Brown. I was proud to have spoken up with you, picketed with you
and been your friend, even if only for a short while, in the continuing struggle to make this
world a better place for all God's children.
We honor your spirit, Ms. Jackie Brown, by continuing to challenge our city and America
to wake up from its deeply entrenched, institutionalized racism, current rightwiig backlash
politics (which benefit the greedy, the dishonest and the rich) and complacency which
prevent it from living up to its proclaimed ideals of freedom and Democracy for all.

What Are The Benefits of Having A Degree?
The Benefits of Having
Source: ERIC Clearinghouse
on Higher Education
The. escalating cost of
higher education is causing
many to question the value
of continuing education
beyond high school. Many
wonder whether the high
cost of tuition, the opportu-
nity cost of choosing col-
lege over full-time employ-
ment, and the accumulation
of thousands of dollars of
debt is, in the long run,
worth the investment. The
risk is especially large for
low-income families who
have a difficult time making
ends meet without the addi-
tional burden of-college
tuition and fees.
In order to determine
whether higher education is
worth the investment, it is
useful to examine what is
known about the value of
higher education and the
rates of return on invest-
ment to both the individual
and to society.
The Economic Value of
There is considerable
support for the notion that
the rate of return on invest-
ment in higher education is
high enough to warrant the
financial burden associated
with pursuingt-a college
degree. Though the earnings
differential between college
and high school graduates
varies over time, college
graduates, on average, earn
more than high school grad-
uates. According to the
Census Bureau, over _an
adult's working life, high
school graduates earn an
average of $1.2 million;
associate's degree holders
earn about $1.6 million; and
bachelor's degree holders
earn about $2.1 million
(Day and Newburger, -
These sizeable differ-
ences in lifetime earnings
put the costs of college
study in realistic perspec-
tive. Most students today--
about 80 percent of all stu-
dents--enroll either in pub-
lic 4-year colleges or in
public 2-year colleges.
According to the U.S.
Department of Education
report, Think College Early,
a full-time student at a pub-
lic 4-year college pays an
average of $8,655 for in-
state tuition, room and
board (U.S. Dept. of
"Education, 2002). A full-
time student in a public 2-
year college pays an aver-
-age of $1,359 per year in
tuition (U.S. Dept. of
These statistics support
the contention that, though
the cost of higher education
is significant, given the
earnings disparity that
exists between those who
earn a bachelor's degree and
those who do not, the indi-
vidual rate of return on
investment in higher educa-
tion is sufficiently high to
warrant the cost.
'Other Benefits of Higher
College graduates also
enjoy benefits beyond
increased income. A 1998
report published by th6
Institute for Higher
Education Policy reviews
the individual benefits that
college graduates enjoy,
including higher levels of
mobility, improved quality
of life for their offspring,
better consumer decision
making, and more hobbies
and leisure activities
(Institute for Higher
Education Policy, 1998).
According to a report pub-
lished by the Carnegie
individual benefits of higher
education include the ten-
dency for postsecondary
students to become more
open-minded, more cul-
tured, more rational, more
consistent and less authori-
tarian; these benefits are
also passed along to suc-
(Rowley and Hurtado,
attendance has been shown
to "decrease prejudice,
enhance knowledge of
world affairs and enhance
social status" while increas-
ing economic and job secu-
rity for those who earn
bachelor's degrees (Ibid.)
Research has also con-
sistently shown a positive
correlation between com-
pletion of higher education
and good health, not only
for oneself, but also for
one's children. In fact,
"parental schooling levels
(after controlling for differ-
ences in earnings) are posi-
tively correlated with the
health status of their chil-
dren" and "increased
schooling (and higher rela-
tive income) are correlated
with lower mortality rates
for given age brackets"
(Cohn and Geske, 1992).
The Social Value of
A number of studies
have shown a high correla-
tion between higher educa-
tion and cultural and family
values, and economic
growth. According to
Elchanan Cohn and Terry
Geske (1992), there is the
tendency for more highly
educated women to spend
more time with their chil-
dren; these women tend to
use this time to better pre-
pare their children for the
future. Cohn and Geske
(1992) report that "college
graduates appear to have a
more optimistic view ef
their past and future person-
Public benefits of
attending college include
increased tax revenues,
greater workplace produc-
tivity, increased consump-
tion, increased workforce
flexibility, and decreased
reliance on government
financial support (Institute

While it is clear that
investment' in a college
degree, especially for those
students in the lowest
income brackets, is a finan-
cial burden, the long-term
benefits to individuals as

Becoming An Exchange Student To The United States
PIE USA's American Homestay Program
At P.I.E,, we believe that the best way to learn about another culture
is to live it first-hand. We have facilitated meaningful exchanges for more
than 28 years and have created countless thousands of international
family relationships. Whether you are an American family interested in
bringing the world to your home
through our host family program or are
a teenager in another country interest-
ed in living with an American family for

Pacific Intercultural Exchange-USA offers three academic homestay programs to for-
eign students traveling to the United States. Applidit ~lay choose the Academic Year
program which begins in August/September and concludes the following June. Or appli-
cants may choose to spend five months in the U.S. on the Academic Semester program.
Two semester programs are available. The first begins in August/September and con-
cludes at the end of the school's first semester. The second program begins in January
and concludes at the end of the school's second semester. Participants in these pro-
S. grams will stay with American host families and attend local public high schools (a pri-
vate high school option is also available). In addition to these options, P.I.E.-USA can
individually arrange boarding school programs at a variety of fine institutions located throughout the United States.
Services Provided By P.I.E.-USA
P.I.E.-USA will provide the screening, selection and preparation of an appropriate host family for each accepted appli-
cant. A host family, by definition, may be composed of a single parent with children (pre-teenage or teenage), a couple with-
out children, or a couple with children (pre-teenage or teenage). Host families may be drawn from a wide range of age,
socio-economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Host homes may be apartments, condominiums, prefabricated homes
(modular homes, factory-constructed and assembled on-site), or single-family dwellings. Placement environments may be
urban, suburban, small-town or rural. Students may be expected to share rooms with host brothers or sisters of the same
sex. While P.I.E.-USA asks for preferences regarding some of these items
on the student application form, no guarantee is expressed or implied,
and an applicant must be prepared to accept placement in any of the
P..E.-USA will provide full accident and medical insurance coverage
for each student which meets or exceeds the standards established by A
the United States Department of State. .
P.I.E.-USA will supply airport assistance at the international gateway
upon arrival in the United States provided the student travels on the dates
specified by P.I.E.-USA. P.I.E.-USA will ensure that the host family and/or
a program representative meets the student at the final U.S. airport.
P.I.E.-USA will provide each student with a designated program repre-
sentative to assist him during the course of the exchange. This represen-
tative will speak with the student on a regular basis to track the progress
of the exchange and to provide support.
Finally, P.I.E.-USA will provide each student with toll-free phone
access to its full-time professional staff for assistance in areas such as
travel, counseling and academics.

U.S. VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Why Volunteer For P.I.E.-USA?
P.I.E.-USA offers people interested in interacting with youth in the international arena the
opportunity to serve in the capacity of Area Representatives, or local support personnel, for high school foreign exchange
students. Students are screened for their academic ability, motivation, maturity, adaptability and overall character. They
range in age from 15 to 18.years and represent more than 40 different countries. Some students stay for only a semester,
while most participate in the full. 10-month program. While in the United States, students stay with volunteer host families
in 48 states and study at the local high schools. The students speak English, though the level of proficiency varies depend-
ing upon their nationality. P.I.E.-USA ensures that each student is fully covered with medical and accident insurance, and
students bring their own personal spending money.
P.I.E.-USA has a large network of volunteer Area Representatives located in communities across the country. These
individuals provide advice and support to the families and students; they basically run the program at the local level.
Each volunteer Area Representative is supported by an Area Coordinator and a full-time paid staff. Area Coordinators
and program staff provide initial and on-going training, guidance, support
and supervision. Area Representatives are provided with toll-free phone
numbers to facilitate access to support staff. Additionally, in emergency
situations, the staff at the international headquarters can be accessed 24'
hours a day. Area Representatives are never without help or assistance.
when they need it.
Managing the program for the students and families is probably the
Most enjoyable and rewarding part of an Area Representative's job. It is
through this contact, as the representatives guide these young ambas-
sadors through the maze of living in another culture, that life-long friend-
ships are formed. There are triumphs and challenges in each program as
the students and the families learn to adapt to each other. Drawing on
the training and support that each representative receives, the chal-
lenges are overcome and the triumphs are celebrated.

The A-B-C's of Healthy Lunchboxes .
With kids heading back
to school, many parents
are looking for. healthy
but fun lunch options.
Experienced lunch pack-
ing parents know that
creativity within a
lunchbox goes a long
way towards-ensuring a
healthy and nutritious
lunch that is actually
eaten, not tossed.
eating habits early that
they keep for life, so
what seems like a daily
decision can actually
have a lasting effect. A
lot of parents work hard
to come up with healthy
and delicious new twists
Son old lunchbox staples
because so many school
cafeterias still serve
meals that are fat and
sugar fiestas the kind
that are producing high
blood pressure and dia-
betes in kids as young as
11, says Dr. Jennifer
cian, author and contrib-
utor to the RealAge blog
on Yahoo! Food
One trick to getting
children to eat a healthy
lunch is to involve them
in their own lunch prepa-
ration. Kids are more
likely to enjoy eating
their own creations.
Healthy lunches are
not just important for
your kid's well being,
they help them make the
grade too. Make sure
that you are sending
your child to school with
the best brain food possi-
ble. A mid-day fuel up
that includes whole
grains, fiber and protein
(a combo that digests
gradually) supplies the
brain with a steady
stream of energy the
exact opposite of the
sugar rush and follow-up
energy crash that high-
carb junk foods produce
in kids. Trachtenberg
offers these creative tips
to help you design
school lunches that are
not only healthy but
tasty and fun as well.
Add fun with
shapes: For young ones,
use large cookie cutters
to make star-shaped
sandwiches for birth-
days, ghosts at
Halloween or snowmen
Pack an edible for-
est: Vegetables are much
more fun when they're
really broccoli "trees,"
carrot "logs," bell pep-
per strip "canoes," cher-
ry tomato "boulders,"
"bridges" all ready to
dunk into salsa or an
herbed yogurt dip.
Change up the
bread: For a kid with a
sweet tooth, how about
low-fat cream cheese
with apple slices on cin-
namon raisin bread? For
a more adventurous teen,
try turkey and cheddar
on rye with chutney.
Send a sandwich on
a stick: Pack these sepa-
rately: several slices of
turkey, chicken, breast or
lean roast beef from the.
deli; some large whole-
grain bread sticks; and a
container of honey mus-
tard or salsa. At
lunchtime, kids can
smear the meat slices
with the mustard or salsa
("glue" as well as flavor-
boosters) and wrap them
around the bread sticks.
Make it a sub. Or a
burrito: Fill a thermos
with sliced meatballs
and tomato sauce. Pack a
sliced whole-wheat roll
for a hot sub sandwich
on the first cool day of
the year. Or, fill the ther-
mos with chicken-and-
bean taco filling- and
pack whole-wheat tor-
tillas and a bag of shred-
ded lettuce and cheese.
Always throw in
some fruit. The staples
apples, bananas, tan-
gerines, grapes are
great, but mini fruit'cups
from the grocery store
(packed in juice, not
syrup) and raisin boxes
are fine too. "Take every
chance to get fruits and
veggies into your kids,"
Don't forget a
Restricting treats entire-

Congresswoman Corrine Brown loses her Grandmother
Sarah Morris 'Big Mama' Dies
Just Before Her 100th Birthday
By: Marsha Dean Phelts
Sarah Morris' creed is found in the 1950s
gospel hymn, "May the Work I've Done
Speak for Me." Mrs. Morri. Matriarch of
the Clemonsi, (Coington, Simmons and
Brown families of Jacksonx ille died on July
13, 2007. For sixty years her grandchildren
and all their friends lovingly and respectful-
ly called her "Big Mama". Mrs. Morris was
a highly regarded role model for her family,
church and community. Her grandchildren
and their friends recalled that she dispensed
discipline with love, wisdom and a black
leather strap named "Susan."
Life for Sarah Mae Morris began nearly
100 years ago on October 18, 1907 in the lit-
tle town of Byromville, Georgia near Plains.
She was the first and longest living of 5 chil-
dren born to Jim and Ida Mae Hill. She
often told the family of her own 'Big Mama',
Sarah Mae Powell whom she was named
after. Sarah Morris remembered how 'Big
Mama' told her descendants of how hard her
life was in slavery. As a young lady Mrs.
Morris moved to Jacksonville, Florida
where she joined the Mt. Calvary Baptist
Church and held membership in many
organizations and auxiliaries. She served
faithfully in Choir #1 and on the Deaconess
Board.. She was a member of the Golden
Age Pallbearer's Lodge #229. She attended
the Clanzel Brown Community Center and
was active in senior citizen's activities
throughout the city. She enjoyed traveling
and meeting people; however, her favorite
recreation was fishing. .For many, many
years the family vacationed on American
year. The Congresswoman
sadly reflected, "Big Mama's
abilities to bake sweet potato
pies, sweet potato pone and
black berry duby better than
anybody I know are follow-
ing her to the grave because
no one in the family ever
needed to know how to bake
these treats before now."
Family members also remi-
nisced that "greens and
dumplings along with fried
chicken were as staple in the
household as grits, eggs and
fished and 4

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Jacksonville Transportation Authority
The Jacksonville Transportation Authority continues to look for new ways to
improve the efficiency of its transit services. After reviewing the hundreds of
comments and suggestions from Transit Talk meetings, surveys and interviews
conducted with our riders and the public, JTA is proposing some route enhance-
ments. We invite you to attend any one of three public hearings to discuss
these proposed service changes (planned for September 2007).
P-2 Cassat-Edgewood/Townsend: the P-2 will be split into two routes and re-
named as WS-12 Cassat-Edgewood and AR-3 Townsend-Regency. The

ISK ueanna! is an aavice column Known for
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!
By Ester Davis
I was at the movies and saw my friend's fiancee 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 situation. I don't know if I should tell him
she may be cheating or should I mind my business and bow out of the wedding. What
should I do?
Ex-Best Man (Paoli, PA)
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 cheating,
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 decision
and keep it moving.
My friends are out of control. I'm afraid to be with them because they are getting bad
reputations. We were at a house party and they had sex with a group of guys. The next
day gossip was so bad in our town that our families we're fighting because of rumors.
I didn't do anything at the party but now that my name is out there, I cut the friends
loose. They're mad at me and call me a traitor. How do I handle this because they're
my friends and I miss them?
Anonymous (Tampa, FL)
The decision you make depends on what you want in life. If you want to be viewed as
having loose morals, no class and a bad reputation, your current friends can make that
happen. Your friends and lifestyle are a direct reflection of your character which will
affect your employment and all of your relationships. If you want a good life with
decency and respect keep the current friends at arms length, find some new ones and
call it a day.
I'm a newlywed and I feel depressed now that I'm finally married. It seems as if the
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.

Americans these days are pursuing what appears to be
lavish living despite concerns over the economy. The
upscaling of simple items reflects our thirst to have the
best of even the most mundane. Additionally, Americans
look for any luxury services that will pamper or relieve
them from mundane duties and the everyday rat-and-run
race. Among the favorites are travel, beauty and entertainment. Now, travel is like that,
and what a change! Thumbs up for private planes. Thumbs down for commercial jets.
Whether your next executive meeting or event requires a translator or a trainer, per-
sonal chef, top entertainment, imaginative theme party or an intimate dinner at an
exceptional restaurant, make arrangements with a concierge and stroll aboard a char-
tered jet. Why? First, it's more productive as in no lines. In many airports you drive
right up to the cockpit door for boarding.
Second, you can travel on your own schedule to your destination. You can work
while you travel. Check-in requires only three or four minutes. Your shoes stay on your
feet where they belong. You can land in close to 10,000 airports, compared to the 4,000
that commercials airlines and jets have to use. Think about this: woo a client with lunch
at Big Sur or "wow" your parents with a day of retail therapy on Chicago's magnifi-
cent mile. Get there in luxury style, top-of-the-line comfort, roomy Italian leather
Olympic-size chairs, personal electronic entertainment systems and did I mention -
True, the world has changed, but let's face it, its slower. Our excessive security is
annoying. Everybody says the polite thing about our excessive security while on the
inside they are screaming louder and louder, thinking, "I just want to be free."
Well, did you know that help has arrived? Among the most profitable services in
this millennium is the timeshared friendly skies with wings. Here's how it works. You
can buy a share of an aircraft (a.k.a. private jet sharing). Seemingly, the most popular
share is about one-eighth. Fractional ownerships are hot. Timeshare condos started this
trend twenty years ago. Let's say your cost/share can start as little as you want for an
aircraft. This includes consulting, maintenance, crew scheduling, a live concierge and
superb service. Some private planes have close to' 9,000 flights annually. Simple arith-
metic here. This rate is climbing 10 to 20 percent per year with a personal chef and
your menu in tow. Ok, you don't want to buy an aircraft. One of the top ten jobs for
this decade is aircraft mechanics. The industry needs something like 20,000 of them
With our current health and diet culture, personal chefs are not waiting for the
phones to ring.
Quite frankly, private jet sharing is the new taxi cab. Business needs, national con-
ferences and events are no longer in-the-city but in adjacent towns. These little towns,
their resorts and spas with their fancy names are located outside the'big cities of the
world. Actually, we are moving back-to-the-country under assumed names. I can see
so many things as we see them today, changing. Some people call this intelligent opti-
mism seeing the world not as it is, but as it could be and then channeling that per-
spective into workable initiatives. Some folks call it recycling, but, as the Bible says,
there is nothing new under the sun.
Air travel will increase ten times in this decade. The new AirBus is ready to hit the
big blue "heavenly" sky, taxing away from the gate with 550 people on board. Just a
new mixed bag of confusion with more security. The service could possibly come with
something extreme like requiring you to purchase your ticket online, which includes
your suit/dress size for the "uniform" you must wear for boarding. You will order
everything you need before boarding, and rent it in flight.
How about lunch? Your jet or mine? And did I mention no line?

Mississippi Voting Laws
Court Ruling Forces
Mississippi Voters to
Register by Party
A federal court ruling in June that forces voters to regis-
ter by party could return Mississippi to the days of racially
:, polarized politics, as many white Democrats warn that thou-
. sands of white voters will now opt definitively for the
Republican-leaning voters in Mississippi have long been
able to cross party lines in primaries, voting for centrist
Democrats in state and local races while staying loyal to
:~ Republican candidates in national races. But political
experts here say that by limiting these voters almost all of
whom are white to Republican primaries, the ruling will
push centrist Democratic candidates to the other party, sim-
ply in order to survive.
Most black voters in Mississippi are Democrats, and
black political leaders have been pushing for years to pre-
vent crossover voting in Democratic primaries. Black lead-
ers say they want to- end precisely what white Democrats
here seek to preserve, a strong moderate-to-conservative
Democratic Party in Mississippi had a
right to "disassociate itself" from voters
who were not genuine Democrats.
voice in the Democratic Party, and in the process to pick up
more state and local posts.
The ruling last month by Judge W. Allen Pepper Jr. of
Federal District Court allowed the legal remedy sought by
black leaders. Judge Pepper said the Democratic Party in
Mississippi had a right to "disassociate itself" from voters
ho were not genuine Democrats. Most other Southern
states also have open primaries.
As a result of the ruling, which was handed down June 8
and barring an appeal will go into effect next year, few
Whites are likely to remain in the Democratic Party, experts
here say, a prospect that Republicans regard with glee, white
Democrats with horror and black leaders with indifference.
SNot for the first time in the South, Republicans and blacks
have achieved a de facto unspoken alliance of common
interests that has been particularly evident in the drawing of
Congressional districts, where blacks are packed into major-
ity-black districts, leaving little space for moderate white
Democrats to be elected.
If white voters go Republican in these districts, so too,
will white candidates and office-holders, ending a persistent
anomaly in a state that easily went twice for President Bush
but where hundreds of local officeholders remain
Democrats. As elsewhere in the South, grass-roots leaders
tend to be moderate Democrats with roots in the New Deal.
The governor is a Republican, and Republicans narrowly
control the Senate. But the House is heavily Denocratic, and
in races:this year for local offices like sheriff, supervisor and
circuit clerk, about '2,500 of 3,000 candidates were
Democrats, said W. Martin Wiseman, director of the John C.
Stennis Institute of Government at Mississippi State
The Democrats' dominance at the local level may now be
threatened by Judge Pepper's ruling.
"If they are required to re-register, the Democratic Party
will be a. shell of its former self because I just don't think
you'll see those conservative whites re-register as
Democratic," said Jere Nash, who is white and a veteran
consultant and onetime chief of staff to former Gov. Ray
SMabus, a Democrat.
R. Andrew Taggart, a white lawyer who succeeded Mr.
Nash when Kirk Fordice, a Republican, was elected gover-
nor, agreed. The ruling was "very far-reaching," Mr. Taggart
. said. "He has essentially ruled our entire primary structure
, must be changed."

Couple From Losing Their Home
Over a tax bill of $1.63 total
A Slidell-area couple whose house was sold for a $1.63
property tax bill they knew nothing about will have clear
title to their home today, thanks to a local businessman who
paid to settle a years-old lawsuit with the land company that
claimed their property.
"I don't even know who to thank," said Dolores Atwood.
"But I'm relieved and happy that this is finally over. .I'm
relieved and tired."
Atwood and her husband, Kermit, will again be the
unquestioned owners of their house at 4122 Dauphine St.
because a St. Tammany Parish businessman and his partner
volunteered to pay Jamie'Land Co. to settle the suit that has
kept the property in legal limbo for seven years, said their
attorney, Gary Duplechain.
The settlement was signed Tuesday at. 11:30 a.m.,
Gen. Ward will be responsible for
consolidating U.S. efforts and pro-
mote partnership arrangements in
In doing so, he will assume
responsibilities on the African
continent currently shared by three
combatant )commanders. U.S.
Central Comrmand has responsibil-
ity for Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea,
Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia and
Kenya. U.S. European Command
has responsibility for the rest of
the nations in the African main-
land. U.S. Pacific Command has
responsibility for Madagascar, the
Seychelles and the Indian Ocean
area off the African coast.
S In announcing the AFRICOM
command Feb. 6, President Bush
said it will strengthen security
cooperation with Africa and create
new opportunities to bolster the capa-
bilities of African nations.
"Africa Command will enhance our
efforts to bring peace and security to
the people of Africa and promote our
common goals of development, health,
education, democracy and economic
growth in Africa," he said.
The motivation behind creating
AFRICOM was the increasing impor-
tance of Africa strategically, diplomat-
ically and economically, Navy Rear
Adm. Robert Moeller, executive direc-
tor of the U.S. Africa Command imple-
mentation planning team, said.
"The view was that the time has
come, in fact, with the increasing
importance of/the continent to the
U.S., that we could better meet our
requirements by standing up one uni-
fied command to consolidate all of
(Defense Department) activities, as
opposed to having three separate com-
mands doing that," Adm. Moeller said.
Duplechain said, and paperwork was to be filed at the parish
courthouse in Covington later Tuesday and today to clear
the title to the property to the Atwoods.
Duplechain said the businessman, who wants to remain
anonymous for now, stepped forward Monday after reading
a story in The Times-Picayune about the couple's plight. The
attorney said he could not disclose the settlement amount.
In 1996, the couple's four-bedroom, two-bath home just
north of Slidell was re-valued at $75,100, or $100 above the
state homestead exemption, so they owed property taxes for
the first time.

Cats in South Carolina dying of contagious disease
GREENVILLE, S.C. A highly contagious dis-
ease has killed more than a dozen cats in Greenville
County, a Humane Society official sild Wednesday.
Ten kittens and four cats have died of panleukopenia,
also known as feline distemper, during the past two
weeks, Humane Society Chairwoman Jennie Johnson
"This is not isolated," she said. "We don't know the
.size of the problem yet."
The deadly disease, unseen in'the county for years, is
preventable through vaccinations. The shelter is 'urging
cat owners to get their pets vaccinated. Johnson said she
is concerned because the felines came from neighbor-
hoods in different parts of the county.
The disease in young, unvaccinated kittens is usually
fatal due to their weak immune systems. Symptoms
include fever, lack of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea.

The British Open
When this issue xof The Florida Star hits the news-
stand on Saturday, Tiger Woods should be 18 holes away
from tying Peter Thompson's record of winning three
straight British Opens.
Tiger enters the week as an overwhelming favorite to.
pull it off. 2But, there are a few other players who would
like to derail the Woods express. Phil Mickelson, who
stumbled and finished runner-up at the Scottish Open last
week; Vijay Singh and Retief Goosen, who have never
won the British; Ernie Els, who has shown signs he can
win again; and players like Jim Furyk, Adam Scott,
Sergio Garcia and Colin Montgomerie, who each fin-.
ished well in their last British Open starts.
Forget about the fact that the course has been tamed
down since the 1999 setup that made 6 over the best
score of the tournament. Forget about the fact that father-
hood is now just a fact of life not imminent event. Forget
about everything except this, Tiger likes the British
Open, and when Tiger bears down, folks need to simply
move aside and watch.

While I have always been a Dolphin fan, I am sad-
dened by their fall in recent years. It seem that manage-

For a while I thought the longevity of Nick Saban was
the winning entry but now I am convinced that we have
a winner. The handling of Daunte Culpepper,
The Dolphins could have cut Daunte weeks ago and
given him a better chance to connect with another team.
It was obvious that the $50 million plus remaining on his
contract made it nearly impossible for Miami to find a
team to trade with.
With training camps set to open in the next couple
days, Daunte Culpepper who, in 84 games as a starter,
has completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 21,091
yards and 137 touchdowns will be moving quickly to
find a new club.
The Jaguars are a possibility Quarterbacks Byron
Leftwich and David Garrard were told earlier this offsea-

Ending nearly three
months of suspense about
his future, Miami Heat cen-
ter Alonzo Mourning said
Sunday night at his annual
Zo's Summer Groove chari-
ty game that he'll play again
next season -- a choice he
kept secret to the end, insist-
ing he was still deciding just
hours before the actual
Truth was, Mourning's
decision was made weeks
ago. The Heat's reign as
NBA champions ended with
a first-round sweep this past
season by the Chicago
Bulls, and he simply isn't
willing to let that be the
final chapter in the book he's
writing on his career.
"I want to redeem myself
and try to help this team
redeem ourselves as an
organization and try to get
back on track," Mourning
said. "That wasn't the
Miami team you saw in the
playoffs last year. ... I was
embarrassed. I was truly
.embarrassed by that out-
come. I know for a fact
we're a better team. It left a
sour taste in my mouth and
it's time to really end it all
on the right note."
This was the third
straight summer Mourning
before choosing to keep
playing. Next season will be
his 15th in the NBA, not
including a full year he
missed with kidney prob-
lems that led to him getting
a transplant in 2003.
"It will definitely be my
last year," Mourning said.

The rain fell so hard, it slanted sideways. The tempera-
tures dropped so quickly, fans were able to see their vapor-
ized breath. Walking pneumonia became a distinct possibil-
ity. Caps, pulled down to battle the elements blowing in from
the Noith Sea, covered eyebrows.
Four hours later, the.umbrellas were
gone and the sun shone so brightly,
shorts and sunglasses appeared every-
where. Welcome to summertime in
Scotland, where visitors get to experi-
ence the four seasons. '
"All in the same day," cracked Ricci
Roberts, Ernie Ells' longtime caddie. ,;
Be it rain or shine, as others holed up
in hotels and the clubhouse, one promi-
nent player stayed on the course no mat-
ter what. As one of his peers observed,
there's probably a lesson there for the Tiger 1
rest of us.
Despite a veritable gale that scared
off fans. and many of his fellow competi-
tors, Tiger Woods was off the first tee at 6 a.m. for his
Monday practice round, undeterred by the circumstances
and steeled for a week of misery, mystery and mastery. At
the British Open, Woods has become Father Nature -- adapt-
ing to wind, rain, heat or cold, not to mention whatever
capriciousness the quirky links courses might present.
This week at Carnoustie Golf Links, Woods is seeking to
become the first player in 50 years to win three consecutive
British Open titles. Anybody who believes his wind vane
will change directions anytime soon might wish to consult
the last man to turn the hat trick hereabouts.
* "I think he's got a chance to win eight in a row," said
Aussie legend Peter Thomson, who won three consecutive
Opens starting in 1954. "If I could do it, surely he can."
It has become increasingly obvious
as to why. Thirty-one years ago, when
Earl and Tida Woods tabbed their son
Tiger, they might have picked the wrong
moniker from the animal kingdom.
Chameleon might have been best, since
when it comes to the British, nobody
blends better into the scene and situa-
Woods, who played his first British
Open in 1995 at fabled St. Andrews,
professed to experiencing lust at first
sight. Ever since, his affair with links
golf has evolved into unconditional
Earlier this month, in a first, he flatly
admitted that the British Open has
become his favorite major even though he has won each
of the other Gland Slam events twice or more, too. It came
as a surprising admission to some of his American fans, to
be sure. Who knew that, in his heart, Tiger Woods wanted to
be Seve Ballesteros?
"I love playing over here because it allows you to be cre-
ative," Woods said Tuesday. "Augusta National used to be
that way. The U.S. Open is obviously not. The PGA is simi-
lar to a U.S. Open setup.
"Over here, you can create shots."

started. She said the suspect grabbed her around the neck and threw her up
against their vehicle outside. Ms. Z was very upset and her behavior was irra-

observed the victim had minor scratches on her chest area and that her cloth-

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.

Don Cheadle Delivers
Big Again in Talk To Me
By Rych McCain,
Photo: Single photo by
Andre' B. Murray/
Photo and Cast photo cour-
tesy of Focus Features
Good actors may
give a single once-in-a-
and fade into oblivion
or do a string of "so-so"
work afterward. Great
actors set the standard
and raise the measuring
bar with every perform-
ance. Don Cheadle is
one actor that this
columnist does not hes-
itate one second to
bestow the label of
"greatness" on. He has
more than demonstrat-
ed a depth of genius
and talent via a succes-
sion of outstanding
stage and big screen
performances. He is not
only a brilliant actor
but he is also a con-
cerned activist as well.
He recently won the
Award for his work and
advocacy regarding the
genocide in the Darfur
region of the East
African country of
Among his most
Alexander in Devil in a
Blue Dress, Sammy
Davis, Jr. in The Rat
Graham Waters in
Crash and of course his
Best Actor Oscar nomi-
Rusesabagina in Hotel
Rwanda. Cheadle's lat-
est celluloid offering
Talk to Me fids him
portraying the late Ralph
Waldo "Petey" Greene
who was a real life
Radio/TV talk show host
during the "Black
Power" civil rights era
of the late 60's and early
Green's true life story
and phenomenal rise
from being an ex-con-
vict and ex-drug addict
to becoming the origina-
tor of talk radio as we
know it today is a story
that was tailor made for
Cheadle. How did
Cheadle prepare himself
to play a character as
colorful as the real Petey
Green? He smiles,
"Unfortunately there is
not a lot of source mate-
rial left on Petey. There's
not a lot of audio tape,
they erased that and
there is not a lot of tape
from the TV show. They
taped over all of that
stuff. But there is a little
that remains and even
from a little, you get a
real good idea of who
this cat was and we were
fortunate enough to have
Dewey Hughes around
so he could give us a lot
and the people that were
in his life, we were kind
of in touch with. And
you try to put that all in
the soup and then read
between the lines and
discover a character."
What got- Cheadle
into the role? "I think
just that it was a unique
person that I had never
heard of which is always
intriguing. And it was at
a period of time in our
history that was very
interesting and tumul-
tuous which always
makes for great drama

Florida Star Pride D VD
Congrats are in order for Kathy
Surrey who was the lone Florida
Star reader who responded (and
won), to my free Pride DVD offer
that was made in this column a few
weeks back in all of my papers and
Web sites. The free DVD's were
provided compliments of
LionsGate Films, Red Sea
Entertainment and Rych McCain
Media/Syndication. Thank you to
Kathy and all of my column fol-
lowers for reading The Florida Star
and my column in it. I hope you
enjoyed your movie. We will do
these things more often.
Watch for TVT
artist Countri Boi outta Dallas,
Texas. He has a new single making
waves called "I'm a Boss" featur-
ing Rick Ross and Slim Thug. His
new album "Countriversy" will
drop later this summer. You pop-
rockers will get off on the sizzling
band "Mink", which features Neal
Carslon (vocals), Stella Mozgawa
(drums), Nick Maybury (lead gui-
tar), David Lowy (rhythm guitar)
and Grant Fitzpatrick (bass). Their
"Talk To Me" video is now airing
on Fuse Myspace "Featured Artist"
this week. Their self-titled debut
album drops August 28, 2007 on
They are set to open for the famed
veteran rock group KISS as well as
perform at the music festival
Mecca Lollapalooza. They embark
on a four month cross country tour
which includes several Canadian
BET's new reality docu-drama
BALD WIN HILLS debuted strong
in the ratings. Baldwin Hills,
dubbed the "Black Beverly Hills"
of Los Angeles, is an upscale black
neighborhood west of Crenshaw
Blvd. where professional athletes,
television and film stars, doctors,
lawyers and engineers reside. The
series explores the lives of 11 chil-
dren some from this upscale area
while others live to the north of
Baldwin Hills, situated along the
base in a public housing neigh-
borhood called "The Jungle" -
as they interact and split their
time between school, parties,
college entrance exams and sim-
ply hanging out. Some of them
are smart and hard working,
while others are spoiled with a
strong sense of entitlement. The
show airs on Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
ET/PT and encores on
Wednesday at 8:30 p.m.,
Friday at 8 p.m. and Sundays at
9 p.m. Congrats are in order for
child actor Carlos McCullers

episode of "Psych" for the USA
Harry Potter and the Order
of the Phoenix stars Daniel
Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma
Watson, Helena Bonham
Carter, Robbie Coltrane,
Warwick Davis, Ralph Fiennes
and, Michael Gambon.
This latest installment of the
boy wizard is pretty much on the
same page as the others. It starts
off with Potter and his cousin
being the recipients of an unpro-
voked attack by two Dementors.
Potter uses his magic to fight
them off and is expelled from the
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft
and Wizardry as a result. They
charged him with illegally using
magic outside of school and in
the presence of a Muggle
(Potter's obnoxious cousin
Dudley. A series of events that
lead to more events follow. The
lighting of the film is dark like
the others to give an authentic
feel of the mid-evil era. The
action is good and of course, so
are the special effects. True
Potter fans should eat this one
