nomic impact across the city, according to the Jacksonville convention bureau.
Although many doctors, lawyers, ministers, politicians and other professional people are

hard working average citizens from throughout the world, according to its leaders.
The Grand Lodge has prevailed since 1898 and the Grand Temple since 1902. The lead-

India's first female president, Pratibha Patil, 72, was sworn in
Wednesday, vowing to eliminate the practice of aborting female

only a symbol, not a leader to represent them since she had been
largely silent on her goals after drawing criticism for calling on Indian women,
Muslims and Hindus alike, to abandon wearing head scarves.

The Jacksonville Children's Commission has received funding for three new after-

in poverty has grown by
1.5 million, and the real
median household income
of African-American fami-
lies is down $2,676.
Rising consumer costs
have hit low-wage work-
ers especially hard as the
purchasing power of the
minimum wage has plum-
meted to its lowest level in
more than half a century.
At $5.15 an hour, full-time
minimum wage workers
have brought home
$10,712 a year, which is
barely above the federal
poverty level for one per-
son and nearly $6,000
below the poverty level for
a family of three. Nearly
half of low-wage workers
in families with children
are the sole breadwinners
for their household.

while the average
American CEO earns
more before lunchtime in
one day than a minimum
wage worker earns all
The CBC motivation
for ensuring this increase
in the minimum wage is
about more than just eco-
nomics; it is about valuing
and building stronger fam-
ilies. This raise will help

million parents, with about
6 million children seeing
their parents' income rise.

M UT A-- "A.AAS
This pay raise is particu-
larly critical to the families
making the supreme sacri-
fice for our nation; about
50,000 military families
will benefit from the
increase in the minimum
wage. An increase of
$2.10 an hour will give
families like these an addi-
tional $4,400 a year to
meet critical needs. That
is equivalent to 15 months
of groceries, over two
years of health care, 19
months of utilities, or 20
months of child care.
While Republicans pre-
fer to make sure that the
American Dream is avail-
able to a privileged few,
we must ensure that we
provide access and oppor-
tunity to all of America's
families. Our ancestors
struggled and sacrificed so
that we would have a bet-
ter life and a brighter
future. This increase in the
minimum wage represents
our effort to change
course, confront crises,
and continue their legacy.
After all, our shared pros-
perity is the best way to
tackle the challenges we
face as a nation, build
stronger families, and
ensure that the American
Dream becomes a reality
for future generations.

Skybus Airlines Begins Air Travel
To Nation's Oldest City
It was so festive! Past and present board members shared precious memories
and a great feeling of success and progress for the area. As we awaited the arrival
there were big orange frosted cookies and plenty of cold bottled water for every-
one. It was such a joyous day, a hot but very clear day for the inaugural commer-
cial flight to arrive at the new St. Augustine Airport Terminal last week. It was as
if a Space Shuttle was being launched. It was exciting! The very first commercial
airplane was scheduled to arrive at the St. Augustine Airport. Our household was
personally excited as plans for this venture had begun during J. Carl Davis' tenure
on the St. Augustine/St. Johns County's Airport Authority from 1996-2000. In fact
Davis was the first and only African American to serve on the elected body and to
also become its chair. During his tenure the plans for the airport's tower were also
initiated. At times it was doubtful that the community would 'buy' into either the
new tower or commercial flight service. But they did! The tower in 2002 and the
commercial in 2007 thanks to loads of help from Congresswoman Corinne
Brown became a reality. And on a hot July afternoon last week, passengers, well
wishers, past authority board members and their families joined the present board
and airport authority staff to await the arrival of the Skybus.
To be among the first to arrive on the inaugural flight
from Columbus, Ohio, Mrs. Kim Wuellner, wife of the
airport's Executive Directive, Ed Wuellner flew to the
Ohio area on another carrier to be able to return on the
inaugural Skybus Airlines' flight to St. Augustine. .

of the St. Augustine/St. Johns County Airport Authority
he told of us the Airport Authority being recognized by

trees and when it was necessary to remove threes they
were transplanted rather than being destroyed.
Skybus Airlines the next generation of low-fare
airlines brought its nonstop flight to St. Augustine with
a full-size jet and very low fares from Columbus, Ohio
to Jacksonville and Daytona Beach through St.
Augustine, Florida. Coincidentally, one of the other
areas that Skybus Airlines has service to is the Hartford,
Connecticut/Springfield, Massachusetts area through
Westover Metropolitan Airport in Chicopee,
Massachusetts is where J. Carl Davis, Sr. was stationed
at the Westover Air Force Base when he and this colum- "
nist were married. I'd say Skybus Airlines ('The Big
Pumpkin') will always bring nostalgic moments for us.

President Castell Bryant is a finn belie\ er in
historically black colleges and universities
but says she can't recommend FAMU for top
students seeking an HBCU education.
In a wide-ranging, lengthy interview
published last week by the St. Petersburg
Times, the.woman who led FAMU for :28
tempestuous months also said she would rate
FAMU students at two on a scale of four,
overall. She declined to rate 'the faculty ,
administration and staff saying FAMU is
blessed with some dedicated, caring and
committed" professionals but that it "lacks a
common purpose, clarity of outcomes and a
willingness to make the necessary changes."
Sharon Saunders, executive assistant for
communications to FAMU President James
Ammons, said Bryant "sounds like a persoft
who has had a really bitter experience. Her
comments are disturbing considering the
fact that she is an alumna of the university
and she has had more than two years to cor-
rect the problems."
Bill Maxwell, a Times columnist and edi-
torial writer, has written extensively about
HBCUs and the academic and administra-
tive problems that have dogged FAMU for
years. He went to Bryant's home in Miami
Lakes to interview her early this month.
She said historically black institutions,
founded in the segregation era, have
"absolutely not" outlived their usefulness.
But Bryant said the value of a degree from
one "is rapidly declining and probably will
continue to decline if we do not accept real-
ity" or make important changes.
"The one thing most HBCUs have in
common is operating behind a veil of secre-
cy that covers processes and understandings
that are slowly eating away.at the solid foun-
dation of the institution," Bryant said. "What
goes on on campus stays on campus and
nobody questions it."
FAMU has been placed on six-month
probation by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools, threatening its
accreditation. A special Board of Governors
task force is working with the university on
financial, administrative and academic
Maxwell asked Bryant if she would rec-
ommend "FAMU or any other HBCU" to a
student ready for college. She replied that,
"I'd recommend some selective HBCUs,"
mentioning Xavier in New Orleans as a
good choice for those hoping for medical
"Would you select FAMU?" she was
"Not at this time," Bryant responded.
Saunders, the university spokeswoman,
noted that a highly critical auditor general's
report on FAMU and the events leading to
the SACS probation:occurred on Bryant's
"FAMU was and remains a great institu-
tion of choice for students," Saunders said.
"We have outstanding faculty, committed
staff and some of the best and brightest stu-
dents this state has to offer. We are very opti-
mistic about FAMU's future."
At another point in the interview,
Maxwell asked Bryant to rate FAMU facul-
ty and students on a scale of one to four.
"I cannot rate the faculty, the administra-
tors and the staff at FAMU," she said. "In
my opinion, FAMU lacks a common pur-
pose, clarity of outcomes and a willingness
to make the necessary changes."
As for the students, she replied, "I'll give
,FAMU students a two. But that's awfful
because we accept them and we could help
more be successful. We don't communicate
our expectations. We don't challenge them
An "alarmingly" high number of inner-
city black young adults smoke and, for those
trying to quit, several factors may conspire
to thwart their efforts, research shows.
A key factor, researchers found, is the
widespread belief among 18- to 24-year-old

on the street," according to the report in the
American Journal of Public Health.
"This easy and affordable way to pur-
chase cigarettes from street vendors and
stores undermines tax policies, promotes
smoking as a normative behavior and may
contribute to high smoking rates in some
inner-city communities," write Baltimore-
based researchers led by Frances A.
Stillman of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg
School of Public Health.
In 1996, the US Food and Drug
Administration tried to ban the sale of single

modest available funds," the authors say.
This research, Stillman's group con-

efforts need to take into consideration envi-

NTSB Begins Investigation Into
Fatal Sanford Airplane Crash
The National Transportation Safety
Board is continuing the investigation into
the aircraft crash in Sanford earlier this
month that took the life of Florida A&M
University College of Law student Janise
Joseph Woodard, 24 along with her 6-
The plane that crashed into a Sanford
neighborhood fell off radar exactly two min-
utes after the pilot declared an emergency
and asked permission to divert to Orlando
Sanford International Airport, federal offi-
cials said today.
It may not have been trying to land, since
neither the wheels nor flaps on the plane had
been extended, officials of the National
Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said.
"It does not appear the plane was in a
configuration to land," said NTSB Vice
Chairman Robert Sumwalt.
Based on information that investigators
gathered Wednesday from an air-traffic con-
trol facility at Orlando International Airport,
they know the twin-engine Cessna 310R
first appear on radar at 8:23 a.m., one
minute after departing from Daytona Beach
By 8:31 a.m., it had leveled off at an alti-
tude of 6,000 feet and was traveling almost
145 mph. It increased speed to almost 185
mph before the emergency was declared at
50 seconds after 8:32 a.m., Sumwalt said.
The plane was cleared to go directly to
Orlando Sanford International Airport and
to descend to 2,000 feet.
The plane began descending and turned
toward the Sanford airport, but radar altitude
data was lost when the plane reached 5,200
feet, Sumwalt said. It disappeared off the
radar at 50 seconds after 8:34 a.m.
Investigators are meeting with air-traffic
controllers in Sanford today and hope radar
there will give them more information on
the plane's descent, he said.
The two engines are undergoing a
detailed inspection at the Sanford airport.
The rest of the plane will be taken to an air-
craft recovery facility near Daytona Beach
as investigators Wrap up the on-scene por-
tion of their investigation this afternoon,
"The investigation is just beginning,"
Sumwalt said. The NTSB will release a pre-
liminary report of its findings within two
weeks, but the final report is expected to
take a year or more.
New data on high school
dropout rates was recently
released from the
Department of Education.
In 2005, 10.4 percent of all
black youths ages 16 to 24
were either not currently
enrolled in school, had not
graduated from high school,,
or had not completed a high
school equivalency course.
For whites, 6 percent of all
youths in this age bracket

The percentage of all
youths who have failed to
complete high school has
declined in recent years for
both blacks and whites.
The 10.4 percent
dropout rate for black
youths and the 6 percent
rate for white youths are the
lowest since 1972. Since
1972 the dropout rate for
both whites and blacks in
the 16- to 24-year-old age
group has been cut in half.

Tallahassee, FL Florida lawmakers plan to return to work in mid-September to
deal with a growing budget deficit that has already forced Gov. Charlie Crist to order $1
billion in spending cuts this summer.
House Speaker Marco Rubio and Senate President Ken Pruitt announced Tuesday
that the Legislature would convene a special session beginning Sept. 18 to deal with
"only those issues relating to the state's budget."
"Florida must continue to budget prudently and act responsibly in the face of declin-
ing revenue collections," Rubio said.
"The task of reducing the budget will be difficult, but achievable," Pruitt said in a
Crist, hospitals and trial lawyers had also hoped to convince lawmakers to tackle
other issues in the anticipated call, notably extending the life of Florida's "no-fault" auto,
insurance law set to expire Oct. 1.

Obama's debate comments set off new round of name calling among Democrats
Washington, DC Barack Obama's offer to meet without precondition with lead-
ers of renegade nations such as Cuba, North Korea and Iran touched off a war of words,
with rival Hillary Rodham Clinton calling him naive and Obama linking her to President
Bush's diplomacy.Older politicians in both parties questioned the wisdom of such a
course, while Obama's supporters characterized it as a repudiation of Bush policies of
refusing to engage with certain adversaries.
It triggered a round of competing memos: and statements Tuesday between the chief
Democratic presidential rivals. Obama's team portrayed it as a bold stroke; Clinton sup-

But the counties have
made a special effort to

Under the Hurricane Recovery Act of 2006,
the department was able to exceed the max-
imum program funding of $375 million to
make loans to hurricane-affected HBCUs,
thus providing nearly $400 million to these
millions of dollars into
and benefits, according to a
congressional study made
The GAO said charita-
ble organizations made up
more than 85 percent of the
over $1 billion in debt owed
by some 55,000 tax-exempt
groups as of Sept. 30, 2006.
About 1,500 of these
groups individually owed
more than $100,000 in fed-
eral tax debts, with some
debts reaching tens of mil-
lions of dollars. Some debts
dated as far back as the
early 1980s, the report said,
adding that the $1 billion
figure is probably low
because some tax-exempt
organizations understate tax
liabilities or do not file tax
"Fortunately, these types
of cases are more the
exception than the norm,"
said Rep. Jim Ramstad, R-
Minn., a House Ways and
Means Committee member
who requested the report.
"But where there are
cases of fraud and abuse,
they should be rooted out so
the reputations of countless
charities that do good work
are not tarnished, and
Americans can be sure their
donations will be put to
good use," he said.
The report came out a
day after the leaders of the
Senate Finance Committee
published a letter from act-
ing Internal Revenue
Kevin M. Brown in which
he acknowledged that tax
abuses persist among chari-
ties and other tax-exempt
groups. Brown also said the
IRS does not always have
the legal means to deal with
While the nation's 1.8
million tax-exempt groups
- such as charities,
churches and educational
institutions do not have
to pay federal income tax,
they are still required to

from employees' wages for

Security and Medicare.
The GAO said it select-
ed 25 organizations for

tially criminal activity in all
Willful failure to remit

One health care related
group with more than $15
million in unpaid taxes gave
its top official more than $1
million in annual compen-
sation and benefits. It also
made several hundred thou-
sand dollars in cash transac-
tions at banks and casinos.
A social club owing
more than $1 million and
former officials had pleaded
guilty to conducting an ille-
gal gambling business,
while the top official of a

It said 71 percent of the
nearly $1 billion in unpaid
taxes is composed of pay-
roll taxes and related penal-
ties and interest.
Despite efforts to expand Advanced Placement study, black students remain
largely absent from the vaunted college-preparatory program. Here is how
they fared last year in some of the nation's largest school districts.

Garden Apartments in 2007. Melvin's murder was also the 17th of victims 15 to 19
this year, which is higher than last year this time, when 12 teens had been killed dur-
ing this same time frame.
What makes this so critical, is that three teens were fatally shot in the same part
of town this week. In the 5300 block of Commonwealth Avenue, two teens, William
Gabrielle Flournoy, 17, and Travis Odol, 19, were discovered, dead inside of a
wrecked car. Each of their bodies contained multiple gunshot wounds. According
to the sheriff's office, the two victims were driving when someone fired at them,
causing them to lose control of their car which resulted in the car crashing into a
SHOOTINGS IN SOUTH GEORGIA THIS WEEK
The shootings by or of teens this week is not just limited to Jacksonville. There
was a shoot-out in Darien, Georgia Wednesday and two teens were shot and rushed
to the hospital. Atwam Gadson and Benjamin Armstrong were wounded in the
shoot-out. The two fugitives were described as black males in their teens. One was
described as 5'10", about 150 pounds with gold-capped upper and lower teeth an*d
the other was described as 5'8", about 160 pounds, with gold-capped upper teeth
and dreadlocks. Both McIntosh and Glynn county officers are involved in the effort
to capture the suspects.
Two officers were chasing two suspects after a hotel robbery on the Southside.
Once they reached the Northside, one of the suspects, Charles Leon Chapman Jr.,
22, jumped out of the Cadillac and was killed by the officers, who were placed on
leave. Timothy Lacraige Walden, 26, was arrested on felony murder and armed rob-
Pastor Mark Griffin of Wayman Ministries organized a walk in the Eureka Gardens

zens working together to stop the violence and break the code of silence.

any criminal wrongdoing. He did admit that he was troubled about some aspects of
the case after one officer changed his story as to who fired first. There was a witness
that said that one of the detectives fired first but his testimony was not considered
"credible" since he was a convicted drug dealer.
Now, attorney Benjamin Crump, Isaiah Rumlin, president of the Jacksonville
NAACP and State Senator Tony Hill have advised that there are sworn statements
from four other witness who back up the first witness' testimony. In addition, Mr.
Crump said that Singletary's autopsy report shows that he was shot four times,
including once in the back. This evidence makes the attorney, Mr. Rumlin and
Senator Hill feel that the officers used excessive force with Mr. Singletary.
According to the Sheriff's Office spokesperson, technically the investigation is still
ongoing and the Sheriff's Office review board is scheduled to consider the incident
onAugust 1 in an open public meeting at the police headquarters beginning at 9 a.m.
The family members of Isaac Singletary, Attorney Crump, Mr. Rumlin and Senator
Hill have requested that the two officers be placed on administrative leave until a
more in-depth review can be made.

Honor Student Who Was Denied Black History
Month Speech Gets Last Word at Graduation
(NNPA) Carl Noldon had a dream to give
a speech he had written for Black History
month last February. In it, he accused
America's public schools of denying Black
children in depth teachings of their own his-
Though the officials at the Bronx High
School for the Visual Arts in New'York
denied him that opportunity amidst contro-
versy over the strong contents of his speech,
Noldon never gave up hope. Now, before
throngs of well-wishers, the honor student
has realized his dream. Having excelled as
valedictorian of his graduating class,
Noldon stood before an audience of school
officials, families and his classmates late last
month and finally delivered the message for
which he had fought.
"Often we hear of the degrading statistics
that cause a day like today to be bitter sweet.
According to the book 'Solutions For
Black America' by educational consultant
Jawanza Kunjufu, only two years ago, in
2004, 63 percent of Black fourth-grade stu-
dents were below grade level in reading, 61
percent of 8th grade Black students were
below grade level in math," he said.
"Finally, last year, according to Dr. Kunjufu,
13 percent of all Black youth between the
ages of 16 and 24 had not earned a high
school diploma or a G.E.D. This is a day of
celebration. Graduation is a beautiful thing.
It is indeed a day for us to realize how fortu-
nate we are and to move ahead with the ful-
fillment of our highest dreams and that we
will do. But hearing these statistics, if I were
to stand before you and say that everything
is great just because we are graduating, then
that would lack integrity. Please listen and
learn from my story."
The 17-year-old, who has been reared by
his mother, Anna Noldon, and grandmother,
Dorothy Noldon, told how he turned his life
around in a nation that often denigrates
Black males his age and dooms them to fail-
ure. Before an audience that responded with
two standing ovations, he spoke what many
Black males in America have yet to learn.
"You see, the truth is that once upon a
time I might have become one of those sta-
tistics. Caught in a web of ignorance of my
roots and the greatness of my ancestry I too
suffered and nearly perished at the systems
that would keep from each one of us the
total truth of the magnificence and genius of
the people of Africa from whence my ances-
tors came," he said. "My Uncle Vincent
played a big role in my change because of
his introduction of what is called 'the truth'
to me...Before that I thought that being
Black meant being stupid and inferior. In
fact, the teachers that I had before I came to
visual arts added to this inferiority complex,
because they didn't teach me about the great
Black civilizations and the achievements of
them. The curriculum had a western basis, a
Euro American basis, so I merely studied
and did work on that basis, but not a basis
that connects to my ancestral values. I came
to realize that I had to care about my own
life, and I had to care about my own health
and education. But on a deeper level, I had
to love being who and what I am because if
I didn't, that would dishonor my African
After two rousing standing ovations,
Noldon joined his classmates in receiving,
not only his high school diploma, but also a
string of other academic and achievement
Since his story was first publicized by
the NNPA News Service last May, Noldon's
sentiments about the impact of Black
History on Black students have been reaf-
firmed by educational experts around the
"Those schools that offer an afro-centric
curriculum saw a 30 percent increase in their
test scores," says educator and author,
Jawanza Kunjufu in an emailed response to
Noldon's story. "Second, students no longer
associate being smart with acting White.
Last, it reduces disciplinary problems."
Also, editors at Fisk University's "Urban
Education Journal" having read the NNPA
story, offered to consider the speech for pub-
George York, principal of the high
school, praised Noldon in an interview in
May, calling him "one of the brightest and
best." But York declined to say specifically
why he had initially refused to allow Noldon
to give the speech.
This week, Noldon's mother, Anna,
responded by saying, "Wow," when asked
her response to her son having earned the
valedictory address and finally having done
"It was terrific. Words can't explain it.
I'm just proud of him," she says.
Noldon vows he has only begun his cam-
paign for more inclusive and diverse curric-
ula in America's public schools. As he heads
to the City College in Manhattan this fall, he
yet has another dream.
"I want to reveal how racism,
Eurocentrism, White supremacy and colo-
nialism, how these elements affect the edu-
cation of the Black people of the world and
other non-Whites," he says in an interview.
"Because I believe that Black children
across this nation are being miseducated in
the way that I was, I have a goal of mixing
Black studies with physics, film, psycholo-
gy, science, mathematics, as N ell as other
He sa\ s he will also continue to study the
works of Black educational scholars, such as
Kunjufu, Dick Gregory, Cornell West, and
Michael Eric Dyson, who he recently met at
a book signing. And, he says, he will push to
diversify Eurocentric education wherever he
"It will be a challenging mission. But, I
will not let college put fear into me," he said
in his speech. "The Eurocentric professors
and teachers love to-teach about how won-
derful the Greeks were and their minds as
well as other Europeans. But do they teach
that the Greeks got a lot of their knowledge
from the African Egyptians? I will not fear
them! I encourage you just as well to change
the world by seeking truth and taking stand.
What will you do? Who are your heroes?
What will you take a stand for that will
impact the lives of others? I encourage you
to also choose your mission and stick to it.
My goal, my dream is to now give back to
others what has been given to me."

|What Should I Know About Dating On Campus?
Dating On Campus: 10
Lessons To Spice Up
Your Social Life
By April Masini
If you are ready to
start winning in the dat-
ing world, follow this
simple strategy for suc-
Lesson 1: First
They are immediate,
long lasting, and usually
of how great you are,
and no matter how sweet
you can be once some-
one gets to know you,
the reality is, your dating
success will be based
almost entirely upon the
other person's initial
sense of who and what
Lesson 2: If you
want the part, look the
Statistics show that
how we appear speaks
more about us, and is
more important, than
what we say verbally.
Lesson 3: Act the
It is a fact that in our
personal affairs, as in all
our business dealings,
we sell ourselves first.
Poor attitude, image, and
behavior will adversely
affect your dating suc-
cess, just as it will nega-
tively affect your suc-
cess in business.
Lesson 4: Be the
The initial impression
you make on a prospec-
tive date predicts
whether she (or he) will
take the time to get to
know you. Dating, as
well as business, is all
about sales. You must
think of yourself as a
product and the person
you want to date as the
Lesson 5: Dating is
about sales and sales is
a numbers game
If you want to multi-
ply your success imme-
diately in dating (or just
about anything else),
learn, understand, and
embrace the concept
behind "the numbers
game." Accept and fol-
low these tenets:
You are a product;
You are .the product's
salesperson, its pack-
'ager, and its advertiser;
The person you're try-
ing to attract is your cus-
tomer. They make their
buying decisions based
upon presentation, pack-
aging, and advertising.;
The world's best
salespeople don't have a
100 percent sales rate, a
75 percent rate, a 50 per-
cent or even a 25 percent
rate. The world's best
salespeople are lucky to
maintain a 10 percent
sales rate and count
themselves lucky if one
out of every ten "pitch-
es" results in a sale.
Confidence = success
The number one qual-
ity both men and women
seek in a date or a mate
Confidence is also the
key attribute that all pro-
fessional salesmen must
possess in order to be
successful. People do
not buy products or serv-
ices from someone who
has no confidence in
themselves or the prod-
ucts they represent.
Lesson 7: Establish
A confident person is
one with a plan and a
goal. What's yours?
Lesson 8: Know
your target market and
give what they,want
Understand to whom
you are trying to sell
yourself and what they
are interested in buying.
Lesson 9: Analyze
the competition and do
Just as you would
study a competitor in
business or a rival sports
team, study your dating
competition if you want
Lesson 10: Take
action and follow
Deal with your fear of
rejection. Stop investing
your energy and self-
worth in outcomes.
Instead ofthinking of
'misses' as 'failures,'
think of them as 'practice
shots'. Dating is a
process. Stop placing so
much importance on
what the person you are
interested in thinks of
you. After all, you don't
know if you would even
like them once you get to
know them, do you?
Set small goals and
accomplish them, one
Get passionate about
your goals and your life.
Enthusiasm is conta-
gious, if you are excited
about your life, people
will .be excited about
being with you.
Dress for success.
Always put your best
foot forward And don't
forget to perfect your
sales pitch. If you keep
doing the same thing,
you will keep getting the
Bonus Lesson: Live
as if there may be no
Realize there are no
guarantees, no dress
rehearsals, and (usually)
no second chances.
Make each day "your
day," one in which you
did all that you could do.

UNF Student Interning at the National A Grateful Community Remembers Jackie Brown
Volunteer Fire Council in Washington DC
JACKSONVILLE, FL University of
*North Florida (UNF) senior and
Jacksonville native Byron Jones is spending
his summer semester interning in
Washington, D.C. with the National
Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC). This
internship is sponsored through The
Washington Center for
Internships and Academic
While at the NVFC,
Byron serves as one of
interns. His duties include
writing press releases,
updating website infor-
mation, pitching- stories,
and maintaining company
The NVFC is a non-
profit membership asso-
ciation representing the
interests of the volunteer UNF's Byron Jones
fire, EMS and rescue Bill Nelson
services. The organization
serves as the information source regarding
legislation, standards and regulatory issues.
In an effort to fulfill his graduation
requirement for the UNF Communications
Department, Byron decided to pursue an
internship in DC. A friend informed him
about The Washington Center and the great
opportunities they provide. With the help of
Professor Mary O. Borg, the UNF campus
liaison to The Washington Center, Byron
was able to gain acceptance into the pro-
"I felt that interning in D.C. was a great
opportunity for me to network and see what
great opportunities are out there for me in
the work-force," says Jones.
In addition to the internship itself, the
program also includes attending an academ-
ic course as well as a lead-
ership forum once a week.
.Byron is enrolled in a
course titled, "Press,
J, Politics, and Power" on
Monday evenings at Johns
Topics discussed in the
class include speechwrit-
ing, message develop-
ment, and message deliv-
ery. The leadership forum
features such speakers as
Tim Roemer, president of
the Center for National
nd U.S. Senator Policy and Jamie
for the National
Commission On Terrorist Attacks.
This Stanton College Prep alum and
former student writer/photographer/intern at
The Florida Star is a Public Relations major
who plans to graduate this year. If given the
opportunity, Byron says he would not mind
staying in D.C. if he were offered a job.
Byron is also taking full advantage of
being around all the museums, memorials,
and other sights in the D.C. area.
Jacksonville Has New Automatic
Emergency Telephone System
The Duval County Emergency Operations Center has implemented a new tele-
phone emergency notification system that gives local officials the ability to deliv-
er a pre-recorded message to residents in targeted areas of the city, or to the entire
county, if necessary, at a rate of 60,000 calls per hour.
The new system, which is called CodeRED, is the abillity to add business, cel-
lular phone and unlisted telephone numbers to the calling database. Previous sys-
tems would only provide notification to those residents with phone numbers that
were listed in the telephone book.
"The CodeRED system will prove invaluable in the event the city needs to
quickly notify residents of a pending or potential emergency. This includes send-
ing messages about evacuation orders, hazardous material spills or Amber alerts,"
said Lorin Mock, chief of the county's emergency preparedness division.
Telephone numbers can be added to the emergency notification call list by log-
ging onto the City of Jacksonville's Web site, www.coj.net, and following the link
to the "CodeRED" Emergency Phone Notification System Page. Those without
internet access may call 630-CITY, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to
5:30 p.m. to have their phone numbers added to the list.

What Jackie stood for and fought for must
Even though many residents of
Jacksonville and the surrounding area who
limited their news sources, did not under-
stand what she was doing and therefore
could not relate, there were enough citizens
who were aware of the "real" Jackie Brown
allowing her to receive 24% of the votes
when she ran for mayor of Jacksonville just
four months prior to her death, with less
than $30,000 in campaign funds and run-
ning ads only in The Florida Star.
About 200 attended her homegoing serv-
ice at the Cathedral of Deliverance Church
on Belvedere Street off Lem'Turner. Prior
to the services which was held on Saturday,
July 21, Cheryl Williams, who had original-
ly worked with Ms. Brown for her campaign
and when she stood up for -the Jacksonville
firemen after the noose incident, read a
statement on behalf of Brown's family who
were comforted by Williams and City
Councilwoman, Glorious Johnson. There
were other speakers, including Diane
Melendez, who too ran for mayor in the last
election, giving their reflections of the lady,
Jacquelyne Arlene Brown. Yrsyl, said that

vate lady. Bob

tions and com-

Jemima at a City Council meeting, the way
she chained herself to a gate to point out her
Love and desire to keep children from being
exposed to a toxic site. She fought for city
minority contractors who received only 4.4
percent of city contracts when the Small and
Emerging Business program was activated,
in a city where 28 percent of the residents
are black. Such a disparity was one of the
reasons Jackie Brown fought so hard during
her last years of life. She said that she had
spoken to God and she did what she under-
stood had to be done to show her apprecia-
tion for life.
Jackie Brown was not always political or
an activist but she always did what she felt
was right and needed. As speakers at the
services pointed out, she never allowed her
illness to cause her to give up her desire to
make a difference. Her fight was for her
son, Christopher Smith, 22, to be a success-
ful college graduate and to raise the bar in
education, health care, quality of life, hous-
ing, the criminal justice system and race
relations. She fought for change. and equal-
ity for everyone.
Jacquelyne A. Brown was laid to rest at
Restlawn Memorial Park with arrangements
handled by James Graham Mortuary.

My family is giving me problems over money. I inherited
several thousand dollars and now everyone has a sob story,
cars breaking down and household issues. Most -of these
people have never visited me at my home nor thought of
me during the holidays. I have had arguments with my par-
ents, my cousins and everyone and I can't take it no more.
I want to put my foot down and say no to everybody that's begging but I'm afraid of
isolating myself. What do I do?
Miserable With Money (Omaha, NE)
It's amazing how friends and family members can smell money but don't know you
when you're broke. You need to take care of your family first, make a donation to your
church and invest what's left. If you have a giving spirit after taking care of your pri-

I am tired of the hustle and flow of relationships. The dating game is so played out and
overrated that I have exhausted my hopes of finding a husband. I cook and clean and
do all the domestic things and work full-time. It seems that men aren't attracted to me.
What am I possibly doing wrong and why can't men see that I'm a total package?
Clarice (Chicago, IL)
You need to get off of the "me, me, me" trip and start focusing on what you can bring
to a relationship and form a loving partnership. Your boast of cooking and cleaning
isn't impressive because there are many services out there that will come and do these
things. You need to demonstrate relationship qualities such as trust, integrity, and loy-
alty and be willing to be part of a team. Men aren't seeing you as a total package and
they'll continue to look at you like a ribbon on a box if you don't change your think-

DICK GREGORY AT 75
By Ester Davis
This year the Don't Believe the Hype Foundation
celebrated the 75th birthday of Dick Gregory. Yes, right "
here in Dallas, Texas. Mind you, with the celebrity sta-
tus of the one and only Richard "Dick" Claxton
Gregory and the milestones he has laid out in history, he
could have been anywhere in the world on June 30,
2007. Oh, by the way, some bowling did actually take
I have interviewed Dick Gregory three times in 20 -
years right here in Dallas. The first time was at "Black
Expo" in the '90s, when a national soft drink company was the national sponsor. The
second time was in 2000, when Dick was in town for the "Hype" and he was waging,
Gregory-style, an open-mike protest from coast to coast against another corporation for
I could not miss Dick's 75th birthday and the grand opportunity to sit with him
again. At the 'Hype" people sat with tape recorders immersed in the sounds, wisdom
and uncompromising gospel according to Dick Gregory Live! You see, Dick has a con-
glomerate mind that makes your mind put all the dots together sooner or later. He is
absolutely amazingly exalting to listen to. He has had awakening theories about the
assassination of President Kennedy and the conflicting facts that surrounded the gov-
ernment's report. Additionally, I still think about 9/11's fourth plane, the one that hit the
Pentagon. His commentary is always without script, scribbles or order of delivery. You
just have to keep up or you are left behind.
I remember reading about his days at the Playboy Club in the '60s as a fierce socio-
political satirist, mixing wit and humor with race relations in America. He was one of
the first crossover comics to mainstream white audiences. He did it all. And all at the
same time. From a stand up comic on the national stage to a documentary, "The Color
of Funny." From film to social acclaim. From accusing the U.S. Census of not count-
ing minorities to becoming a nutritional guru.
It is interesting to note that here was a man in his prime, in demand, performing to
haute couture audiences compensating him handsomely as a celebrity stand-up comic.
He was invited to talk shows, such as Jack Paar and Johnny Carson, and to perform in
some of the most posh clubs, bars and parties around the country. This celebrity with
a natural talent that afforded him a pinnacle lifestyle became a civil rights activist. He
marched. He demonstrated. He spoke out on world hunger. He staged hunger strikes.
He is passionate about peace. In his demonstrations against all wars, he carries a sign
saying "Imagine peace." Imagine Peace!! Imagine that.
When you examine the life of Dick Gregory, you readily see that he all but aban-
doned that good-paying "job" for social causes, for human dignity, mankind and peace
on earth. Meaning quite simply that he left the stage to join the civil rights movement
... not only for the moment and in America, but for the duration, it seems. From
humorist to activist to YouTube.

The MAD DADS Jacksonville
Chapter, organized in October 2002, is
comprised of local men and women who
are distressed enough about the despair
and violence on Jacksonville streets, that '
they are doing something about it them-
selves. They serve, for the most part, as
volunteer role models. They patrol trou-
bled streets reaching out to youth, as sur-
rogate parents on the streets, trying to lead them away from crime and
This outstanding organization provides violence prevention activities and
other assistance to residents in their communities. The Chapter recruits
strong, drug-free men and women to become 'Street Mentors' serving as a
bridge between the community at large and the youth on the street.
MAD DADS are a visible and vocal presence in neighborhoods across
Jacksonville, enlisting all of the community-based assets available. They
support law enforcement, the judiciary, and parents who want to stand up
and fight against the negative forces destroying our children and families.
The mission of MAD DADS is to bring about positive change. MAD
DADS seeks out, encourages, motivates, and guides committed men and
women in the struggle to save children, communities, and ourselves from
the social ills that presently plague our neighborhoods. MAD DADS employs
strategies to engage men and women in the intervention and prevention of
community problems, and is designed to attract, challenge, and prepare
these activists to be vocal, visible, and vigilant in restoring safe communities
and healthy families.
It is time for every able adult to step up and provide support to this organ-
ization. You can volunteer, or provide funds for this organization to complete
their mission. If they are successful; then we are all successful. It is very
clear to me, with all the budget cuts being made by the city, that no one will
save us but us!

Dogfighting trial goes to jury in South Carolina
Colleton County, S.C. The jury is expected to receive instructions today for its
deliberations from Judge George James Jr. in the dogfighting trial in Colleton County.
The defense rested this morning after three witnesses testified in support of Phillip
Maffei, 45, of Benton Farm Road. Maffei was charged last year with four counts related
to animal and dogfighting.
The trial began Tuesday and has included eyewitness accounts of pit bulls fighting
other dogs on the property and attacking hogs or dogs. One of the defense witnesses
Thursday was a breeder of pit bulls, another was a man who had purchased pit bulls from
Maffei. The jury is expected to begin its deliberations after lunch.

* Pressure on Vick
Bud and Barry
"I ilthiught it was proper lur mIl to be here. I'll stay for
as long as I can, everybody's got to make their own eval-
uation. I'm just here to watch it. It is a huge moment in
baseball history." These words from Baseball
Commissioner Bud Selig at last recognize that what is
about to happen is Baseball history.
Barry Bonds will hold the record for most career
And because of that he should be treated as the new
record holder. Selig's job is not to treat players according
to his personal opinions or belie I;, but to treat them con-
sistent with the traditions and history of this great game.
The time will come when we all will have to decide
whether Barry Bonds is a hero, a goat or simply a prod-
uct of the times.
We live in a society where "artificial" enhancements
are a way of life look at Phizers annual sales of Viagra
if you have any doubts about that.
This past week the Tour de France booted one of the
most respected riders in the peloton, Kazakh star
Alexandre Vinokourov, the winner of two stages at Pau,
tested positive for blood doping.
For right or wrong, we have created and live in a
competitive society where there is a constant battle to get
the edge up on the competitor. It's is true in sports, busi-
ness, and even religion.
The winners are those who can pull it off without get-
ting caught in the process. Those who can develop one
more enhancer that can't be detected, one more way to
beat the system.
In most cases the irony is that the losers are the fans,
those who got taken in that we only got to see the best
cheater not the best athlete.
No active major leaguer has been positively identified
for steroid use. And I hope but doubt that will con-
tinue to be the case.
I still remember the late-life photos of steroid's first
poster child. I pray that none of the long-ball hitters of
today become the next Lyle Alzado.

Suspected NBA Referee gets death threats
Bradenton, FL The ex-NBA referee at the cen-
ter of a federal gambling probe yesterday received two
telephone death threats at his Florida home, said police.
Tim Donaghy, 40, called. 911 after getting the calls,
which apparently were placed by the same man.
The caller warned Donaghy that he was a "dead
man" and "you're done, you're dead," according to the
Manatee County Sheriffs Office report, which lists
only Donaghy's Bradenton address, and not his name.
Donaghy is the target of an FBI probe examining
whether he sought to influence the score of basketball
games he was refereeing. Donaghy allegedly tailored(
his calls because either he or his cohorts (some of\
whom are mob connected) had placed money on the
games in question. In the wake of the federal investiga-
tion--which is examining NBA contests during the past
two seasons Donaghy resigned his job, which he
held for 13 years.
British Heavyweight Champ Shot in Pub
London, UK The former British heavyweight
boxing champion shot in the head at a nightclub may
have asked the men who attacked him to stop smoking,
it has emerged.
The life of James Oyebola, 47, hangs in the balance
as he remains in a critical condition tonight in hospital.
The 6ft 9in ex-fighter was shot in a covered court-
yard area at the rear of the Chateau 6 club in Fulham
Road, southwest London.
Witnesses said the former boxer, who won the WBC
International Heavyweight title in 1993, intervened as
staff asked the group to stop lighting up. One said Mr
Oyebola asked the men to put out their cigarettes and
pointed out that smoking in public places was now
against the law.
Mr'Oyebola, of northwest London, was shot in the
head and leg and was taken to a west London hospital.
Jags open training camp today!
Jacksonville, FL The Jaguars open training
camp today with most of their draft picks under con-
tract. Defensive tackle Derek Landri agreed to a con-
tract Tuesday, ensuring the rookie will be on the field
when training camp begins.
Landri, a fifth-round pick from Notre Dame, is hop-
ing to earn a roster spot behind starters Marcus Stroud
and John Henderson.
The Jags have two draft picks left to sign: first-
rounder Reggie Nelson, a safety who already has
earned a starting spot, and second-round selection
Stern: NBA Betrayed!
David Ster has seen college basketball and German
soccer overcome pNoinl-Thak iin scandals. He never imag-
ined his own league would be thrown into one. He was a
commissioner apparently embarrassed and humbled, and
maybe he made the first move toward a pos-
itive result for the NBA.
The NBA commissioner blamed "rogue, .
isolated criminal" Tim Donaghy for that,
creating a betting scandal that has devastat-
ed the league and threatened the credibility
of every referee.
"My reaction was, I can't believe it's
happening to us," the commissioner said
"It is my hope that the NBA will be sim-
ilarly accorded the benefit of the doubt
based upon what we have done, what we
stand for and what we pledge to continue to commissioner a

eree -- the target of an FBI investigation for allegedly bet-
ting on games, including some he officiated, over the last
Stern said he believed no other officials or players would
be implicated in the betting scandal.

Pressure Grows for
Action in Vick's Case
"Sack Vick!" chanted the demonstrators, organized by
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, as they walked
peacefully in front of the Park Avenue building. Many held
dogs who had the "Sack Vick" signs on their backs and one
woman brought a pit bull, the breed killed in the dogfighting
operation the Atlanta quarterback is accused of sponsoring.
Inside the building, Roger Goodell met with officials
from the PETA and the American Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals.

demonstration focused on

After Vick was indicted Tuesday, the NFL said it would
monitor legal developments in the case. Vick is scheduled to
be arraigned Thursday in federal court in Richmond, Va.
On Friday, though, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy
"We agree with them that dogfighting is cruel, degrading
and illegal. The alleged activities are very disturbing and we
are extremely disappointed Michael Vick has put himself in

though the NBA stresses its system of mon-

he wasn't shocked Donaghy slipped tllro:gili the cracks.
An NBA referee for 13 years, D:-rna.-ih1 was rated in the
top tier of officials, Stem said. Stiil. this isn't the first time
he has been in trouble with the league.
In January 2005, Stem said, the NBA inr esti gted a dis-

The neighbors, Pete and Lisa MafJniiuto. sued Donaghy
for harassment and invasion ofpri %ac\. and accused him of

their lai\suit, the Mansuetos also alleged that Doinahy set
fire to a tractor they owned and crashed their golf cart from
Radley Run Country Club into a ravine.
During the NBA investigation, there were allegations
that Donaghy was gambling -- not on sports -- in Atlantic
City. Ster said the league.contacted e rr casino in Atlantic
City and Las Vegas and found no evidence.
Tuesday, Ster vowed to review the league's procedures
to make surelthis wouldn't happen again.

groups and individuals, including the ASPCA, and are
reviewing all of our options to deal with this as quickly as
Sherry Ramsey, a staff attorney for the Humane Society
of the United States, said she was disappointed in the
"There is a precedent in the Jones suspension," she said.
Ramsey said her organization wrote to the NFL in May,
offering to work with the league to help educate players
about dogfighting. She said it did not receive a reply.
However, two letters written June 21 by the NFL to the
Humane Society, and provided to The Associated Press by
the league, said warnings on animal fighting and animal cru-
elty are now being included in the annual briefings by the
league security staff to players. Those briefings will take
place at all 32 training camps this summer.
"We are in total agreement that there is no place for ani-
mal cruelty and illegal animal fighting and take very seri-
ously the allegations of dog fighting against Michael Vick,"
Peter Abitante, Goodell's personal assistant, wrote nearly a
month before Vick's indictment.
"We certainly do not condone this activity and will not
tolerate cruelty or mistreatment of animals. If Mr. Vick or
anyone associated with the NFL is found to have violated
state or federal law, the commissioner has stated publicly
that he will impose significant discipline under our personal

pect that the traffic stop was complete and he was free to go. The officer also asked
the suspect JWL if he would provide consent to search his vehicle. JWL agreed to
the consent to search his vehicle, BUT HE SUDDENLY RAN AWAY. Because the
suspect had already signed his citations and was not being detained for the traffic
stop anymore, the officer did not pursue him when he ran. Since he left his vehicle,
and had already consented to a vehicle search, the officer proceeded to do the
search. Upon his findings, there was a concealed pistor under a shirt of the front
seat. It had a round in the chamber and four additional rounds in the magazine.
Makes you think, what was he up to!

angrily grabbed her face and would not let her go. According to the victim, she
defended herself by pushing the suspect away from her. The victim stated that the
suspect sat in her vehicle in the parking lot for about ten minutes prior to leaving the

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

on the "Great Lawn,"
of the Wadsworth

from all of the CBS

Birthday wishes goes out to
teen actress Paige Hurd who
turned 15 on July 20. Of course,-
she is one of Rych McCain's
picks for his special family of
young artists and was recently
featured in this column.
BET announced their 2007
fall line up that includes three
new shows. First is "BUFU,"
an animated comedy in the vein
of "SATURDAY NIGHT
LIVE" and "SCTV. It debuts
Tuesday, November 13 at
10:P.M. ET/PT. Second is
"SUNDAY BEST," a nation-
wide search for America's next
great gospel singer. The pre-
miere date is Tuesday, October
2 at 8 P.M. ET/PT. Third is
"HIP HOP vs. AMERICA," a
multi-episode special featuring
a recent BET Town Hall discus-
sion on the subject of hip-hop.
This is a powerful, enlightening
and provocative debate that
takes an honest look at the cul-
ture's merits and faults.
Panelists include rappers Nelly,
T.L, Chuck D, Master P jour-
nalists Diane Weathers, Farai
Chideya, Stanley Crouch and
the Rt. Rev. Al Sharpton. Check
your local listings for air dates.
Other BET shows in the fall
line up include the return of
INTERNS;" premieres in
GANGSTER 2," narrated by
actor Ving Rhames, premieres
Thursday, October 4 at 10 P.M.,
ET/PT. Also look for
"KEYSHIA COLE 2: THE
WAY IT IS;" and check out
Comedian Paul Mooney's new
court show called "JUDGE
MOONEY," where real people
will bring their real cases to
Mooney's courtroom to receive
a verdict that only the outra-
geously funny Judge Moony
can deliver. For those who
prefer religious themes, the
fall line up also includes
"EXALTED!" This is a show
that examines the lives of var-
ious ministers from around
the country. Reggae fans will
love "LIVING THE LIFE
OF MARLEY," a show that
highlights the life of Marley's
son Ky-Mani Marley. And
last but not least, you can
look forward to the "BET
HIP-HOP AWARDS," com-
ing out of "Hotlanta, GA.
Hot Rodstars Rod
Samberg, Jorma Taccone,
Isla Fisher, Bill Hader,-
Danny R. McBride, lan
McShane and Sissy Spacek.
This film could be classified
as a Middle American subur-
ban dramatic comedy. Rod
Kimble (Samberg) doesn't
get respect from his step dad
(McShane) who always phys-
ically smacks him around.
Rod vows to beat the crap out
of him someday but the old
geezer has a heart problem
that suddenly went bad. He
has to have a transplant oper-
ation but doesn't have the
Rod thinks of himself as a
biker stunt man but in reality
he's not that good. He finds a
money man to sponsor his
attempted jump over fifteen
school buses to raise money
for his ill step dad's opera-
tion. This movie is silly and
funny in places. Rod's step
brother Kevin (Taccone) and
best running buddy Dave
(Hader) and girlfriend Denise
(Fisher) all provide for comic,.
serious and romantic relief. If

Talk To Me Remembering Petey Greene
By Dwight Brown,
NNPA Film Critic
"Being a DJ is the
only thing I know how to
do that isn't breaking the
It's 1966. Crusty, foul-
mouthed Ralph Waldo
"Petey" Greene (Don
Cheadle) is a prison DJ
and the voice of reason at
his penitentiary. "Telling
it like it is" serves him
well the day he haphaz-
ardly meets radio produc-
er Dewey Hughes
(Chiwetel Ejiofor, Dirty
Pretty Things). In sec-
onds Greene's audacity
leaves an indelible
impression repulsing and
astonishing the conserva-
*^ y^ ,
Once he exits prison,
Greene, with his sassy
hootchie momma girl-
friend Vemell (Taraji P.
Henson, Hustle & Flow)
by his side, storms into
Hughes' Washington DC
radio station looking for
aj-o-b. The rest is histo-
ry. The ex-con from the
ghetto becomes the
nation's first shock jock,
Over the years, with
Hughes as his guide,
Greene's mouth roars
him into fame. He
becomes the voice of the.
workingman, has his own
TV show and an infa-
appearance on Johnny
Carson's Tonight Show.
Michael Genet and
Rick Famuyiwa's strong
script and edgy dialogue
resurrects real life char-
acters that beam with life.
The strong personalities
of the audacious Greene,
nurturing and put-upon
Hughes and hot-blooded
Vernell loam large over
the production and are
brimming with shocking,
banter. It's them against
the world and the viewer
gets caught up in their
Lemmons, who made a
noted debut with Eve's
Bayou and squandered
forward momentum with
the esoteric Caveman's
Valentine, is back on
track, living up to her
potential. Within the
confines of the film's
modest budget, she recre-
ates the turmoil of the
sixties with verve. Her
gives a consistent,
vibrant, rhythmic feel to
Greene's rise and fall.
Scenes during the DC
riots after Martin Luther
when Greene calmed
angry mobs, frame histo-
ry. She stages the scenes
perfectly and guides the
cast's performances like
The musical -sound-
track (James Brown,
Wilson Pickett, Sly and
the Family Stone) and
original musical score
jumps. The evocative
sets and art direction
convey an assured feel
for the time and place
(Warren Alan Young and
Patrick Banister, respec-
tively). The costumes
(Gersha Phillips), espe-
Don Cheadle as Petey Green
cially worn by Ms.
Henson, recall the '60s
and '70s with flair.
Don Cheadle, a
chameleon actor, deli-
cately balances Greene's
bravura, insecurities and
love for the common
man. His performance is
Oscar caliber. Cheadle
and Ejiofor's intense por-
trayals magnify dramatic
scenes between the loose
cannon DJ and uptight
Vernell ranges from
tacky, to tender, to turbu-
lent without skipping a
beat. Cedric the
Entertainer, Mike Epps '
and Martin Sheen crown
a strong supporting cast.
The blunt, humble,
courageous voice of
Petey Greene resonates
with truth and black pride
long after the final credits
TUESDAY NIGHTS AT 10 30pm ET on the BLACK FAMILY
The intimate one on one interview specials, with today's
hottest talents such as Steve Harvey, Mo'nique, Star Jones
Reynolds,.Evander Holyfield and Pebbles.

This is b\ far the best
Bourne movie of the
entire trilogy. The action
is non-stop throughout
and the pieces of the
puzzle finally come
together for Jason
Superb performances ic views of each location
are rendered by
(Strathairn) who plays
the head of the secret
Blackbriar and is hell
bent on getting Bourne;
(Stiles) as CIA operative
Nicky Parsons and
(Allen) the coy CIA
Pamela Landy. The film
takes the viewer on a
w\hirl \-ind outr of
Mosconw. Russia: Paris.
France: Madrid. Spain:
London. Morocco and
New York City. \\ith
breath taking, panoram-
loaded with hear stop-
ping fight and chase
scenes. True Bourne fol-
low\ers will \worship this
film. If Matt Damon is
not the number one
action superstar after
this outing. I don't know-
w ho is. There is not one
dull moment in this
film. This movie beats
all of the so-called
blockbusters out there
