river-a mother, two
girls and a boy. The
water isn't clean, but the
children play in it avoid-
ing dead fish whose pale
bellies roll on the sur-
face. There's a mill or
refinery or food process-
ing plant several kilome-
ters upstream that spews
thick raw sludge into the
river. The plant's smoke
stacks send opaque
plumes of gaseous tox-
ins skyward; flakes the
color of slate settle on
the roofs and sills and
the mother's struggling
crops of corn, beans and
greens. The makeshift
door-a blue sheet of
plastic-fails to keep the
flakes out. The mother

but she hasn't been well
since a recent miscar-

many countries, women

but don't own the land.

one of his sisters have

Global Resources and
Opportunity for Women

GROWTH Act, H.R.
2965). This measure
would increase support
for enterprise develop-
ment by women to pro-
mote the growth of their

employ other women. It
is based on the premise
that linking micro-credit
programs to the small
and medium enterprise
sector helps build
national economies from
the ground up and
efforts also fuel the
advancement of democ-
racy and the promotion
of human rights. Micro-

ers the poorest of the

an open or closed casket? Maybe
you want a special friend to do

around and talk to a few funeral

Decide onbody 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.

presentation given by Archivist and counselor at Stanton,
Mrs. Grace Brown Galvin, on Friday morning. Later on
Friday evening at the banquet, after light hors d'oeuvres
and the taking of the class picture, classmates were wel-
comed by Annette Madison Fridie (Miss Stanton,
1957). A stirring occasion was given by Joyce Holloway
Montgomery (Valedictorian, 1957). Master of
Ceremony, The Reverend Frederick Richardson
(President of the 1957 Class), introduced the entertain-
ment for the banquet: Classmate and retired professional
entertainer Columbus Smith and a comedy routine by
classmates Iona Godfrey. King and Elmon Holback.
The class danced the night away with the masterful "back
to the 50's" music by D. J. Rodney Hurst. An added
unique touch to the beginning of the banquet was the
marching into the banquet room to "Pomp and
Circumstance" as Dr. Willie Lee Lucas (former school lit

for the class) read each name.

Publix to Offer Free
Antibiotics to Customer
* Barack Obama Ready
Free Antibiotics from Publix
Florida's Corrine Brown lined up behind Sen. Hillary Clinton
The Publix supermarket chain seems to be able to do
what the federal government can't do. That is provide low-
cost prescription drugs. The company announced Monday it
will offer seven antibiotics for free. That is not a typo, the
cost is free!
"It can't be any more affordable than free," said Gov.
Charlie Crist, who went to a suburban Fort Myers Publix
store to help the company announce the initiative and laud
it for a "great corporate ethic."
The seven oral antibiotics, representing the most com-
monly filled at the chain's pharmacies, will be available at
no cost to anyone with a prescription as often as. they need
them, Publix CEO Charlie Jenkins Jr. said. Fourteen-day
supplies of the seven drugs will be available at all 684 of the
chain's pharmacies in five Southern states.
The prescription antibiotics available under the program
are amoxicillin, cephalexin, penicillin VK, erythromycin,
ampicillin, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim, and
Florida has 3.6 million uninsured people
and many who have some insurance but no
coverage for prescription drugs.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Kmart and other retailers already
offer discounted drug programs. But Publix Super Markets
Inc. officials say the company is the first large regional
chain to offer certain drugs at no cost. In addition to Florida,
the company operates stores in Georgia, South Carolina,
Alabama and Tennessee.
With health care costs one of the biggest challenges fac-
ing many Americans, Crist said that the private sector's
involvement in the solution was "a great trend."
Jenkins acknowledged that increasing pharmacy sales
was a part of the company's motivation, but said the compa-
ny also wanted to contribute to that trend.
"Frankly, we're interested in building our pharmacy
business," Jenkins said. "But moreover, we want to help the
citizens of our state have affordable health care, and we
thought this was just a good start in doing that."
Richard Hastings, senior retail analyst with Bernard
Sands LLC, said he wasn't surprised Publix was joining the
effort to cut retail prescription costs.
"It's not hard to do, certain generic prescriptions are run-
ning at very low costs per volume, so it's easy to use this as
a marketing lure," Hastings said.
He noted that if a generic drug already sells at less than
$10 without an insurance co-pay, the company could justify
losing that amount as a marketing expense that could be
made up for with more store traffic.
"Publix is already strong on customer loyalty, so this
only strengthens their loyalty and comparable store sales,"
Jenkins said he didn't know how much the effort would
cost the Lakeland-based, employee-owned company,
because company officials didn't know how many people
would take advantage of it.
Dr. Andrew Agwunobi, secretary of Florida's Agency for
Health Care Administration and a pediatrician, said many of
the antibiotics are prescribed for children, and he noted that
Florida has 3.6 million uninsured people and many who
have some insurance but no coverage for prescription drugs.
"So I hope they are ready," Agwunobi said, predicting a
The drugs that will be available for free under the pro-
gram include Ciprofloxacin, a common antibiotic used to
treat certain infections, including urinary tract infeclioins,
and infections caused by E. coli bacteria. But it is probably
better known to the public as a drug that is used to treat
Penicillin, and penicillin-like drugs, including amoxi-
cillin, are among the most commonly prescribed antibiotics,
used to treat a wide variety of infections. Amoxicillin is
often used to treat children's ear infections.
Publix officials said that the range of antibiotics chosen
for the program was based on how often the company's
pharmacists fill prescriptions for those drugs, and different
types of antibiotics were chosen so patients who riay not be
able to use one because of an allergy or because it doesn't
work for them, may be able to still get another for free.
The Publix initiative might contribute to that if doctors
were to respond by increasing the number of prescriptions
they write for the particular antibiotics the company is offer-
ing for free, saiit Lisa McGiffert, a health policy analyst for
the Consumers Union, publisher of Consumer Reports,
which has raised some concerns about antibiotic resistance.
"But I do believe there are many people who do not fill
those prescriptions because of the cost, and certainly mak-
ing this medication free is going to help those people,"
McGiffert said. "As long as doctors are conscientiously pre-
scribing antibiotics, this is going to help a lot of people."
Wal-Mart last year started offering hundreds of prescrip-
tion drugs of all different kinds, ranging from diabetes med-
ication to high blood pressure drugs, for $4. It hopes it can
draw more shoppers into its stores who may come for pre-
A scriptions andithen stay to buy in other departments.
Obama Claims Blacks as "Base"
David Axelrod, Obama's senior campaign strategist to
Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., has identified blacks as the
Democratic presidential candidate's "base," suggesting that
Obama can mobilize unregistered black voters to the polls
like no other Democrat in the 2008 race. "I think he has a
strong base in the African-American community that in
some states is going to be very, very helpful," Axelrod said.
"No one brings, I think the sense
of identification with people
who are struggling to be heard."
"I think (Obama) will put
states in play that no other :
[Democrat] can put in play," said |
Axelrod. "There is no doubt that ,:'

Housing slump takes toll on Florida's economy
Tallahassee, FL Floridians are spending less on big-ticket items -- cars, furniture,
appliances -- and economists say it's due to one main ailment: the slumping real estate
The principal problem, state economists said Wednesday, is that home construction
and sales of existing homes have dropped even below the slowdown they had anticipat-
ed earlier this year.
The level of sales of existing homes has dropped to 1997 levels. And the sluggish
housing market has eroded consumer confidence and dragged down the sales of other
expensive items such as automobiles. Auto sales in Florida have plummeted in the past

Intel In Bad Taste
Study Recommends Dropping
SAT & ACT Scores in Admissions
A new report published by the American Sociological
Association offers a simple and easy approach to increasing
racial diversity on campus without using race-sensitive
admissions policies. The solution: Do away with the SAT
and the ACT as factors in the admissions process.
In the current issue of the American Sociological
Review, sociologists Sigal Alon of Tel Aviv University and
Marta Tienda of Princeton University recommend that uni-
versities concentrate on high school grade point average and
class rank in admissions decisions. They feel these measures
of academic success have been shown to be as good as, if
not better than, standardized test scores as predictors of suc-
cess in college.
According to the authors, "Test scores seem to be an
increasingly important barrier for minorities' chances to
attain a bachelor's degree, restricting their opportunities to
become leaders in all walks of life."
The authors' data shows that by eliminating or reducing
the weight of test scores in admissions decisions, the
nation's most selective colleges and universities can achieve
the goal of enrolling a diverse student body while not com-

While many White Americans recognize
that they enjoy certain privileges over other
races, nearly half of them believe govern-
mental institutions are color-blind and don't
contribute to those privileges, according to a
new "Whiteness" survey released by
researchers at the University of Minnesota.
"The assumption has been that Whites
didn't see or understand the privileges they
might have that go along with race," said
Doug Hartmann, an associate professor of
sociology at the university and the study's
"And there we have pretty high numbers.
Sixty percent or upwards of Whites see the
way that prejudice and discrimination and
family upbringing and access to schools cre-
ates advantages for them. That's surprising
to a lot of left-leaning type scholars who
assume that Whites didn't get that," he said.
Although more Whites are starting to
understand the advantages of being White in
America as a group, they are less aware of it
than other racial groups, the study said.
The study reported that 46 percent of
Whites "agreed that laws and institutions

That sandwich represents i challenging balancing act for parents packing
lunch: kids have to love it and it should also deliver good nutrition. To be a
classroom champion, kids need to power up with nutrient-rich foods.
Great taste is the key to getting kids to make more nutritious choices
at lunchtime," said Connie Dielknan. director of university nutrition for
Washmuton University in St. Louis. "Maiking a nutritious sandwich the kids
will enjoy starts with choosing the right bread."' ieckman recommends
looking for 100 percent whole grain bread that delivers the nutrition kids
need, but with a soft texture and smooth taste that kids really like.
It pays to read labels carefully. Many wheat breads on the market are not
made with whole wheat, but with enriched wheat flour with a nutritional
profile similar to white bread. "Sara Lee Soft & Smooth 100% Honey Wheat

School Board's Cell New MultiDourDose ComDlex Dedicated in Northwest
Phone Bill Comes
Under Auditors Attack
In response to recent indications from state auditors that
the practice is illegal, the school system has banned person-
al calls on all 462 cell phones registered to the board.
The new rules are a departure for school personnel who
enjoyed unchecked use of these phones despite a policy
intended to prevent just that.
Officials said the personal usage is not only a violation of
federal tax codes but there is also a need to reduce the school
system's $25,000 monthly bill.
The money paid for cell phone minutes is equal to the
salaries for six teachers, said Chief Business Officer Thresa
Giles on Tuesday. Reducing spending is a priority, she says.
Superintendent Joseph Wise, office staff and principals -
were informed of the change in an e-mail sent Monday.
Charges for the Duval County school system, cell phone
usage for a recent month are shown below.
The information was taken from a bill summary from
AT&T Wireless to the school system. Dates covered: April
15 to May 14
-- Total amount due: $24,742.35
-Amount for airtime (excluding fees): $15,504.84
-- Internet access for Blackberrys: $7,162.01
-- Directory assistance: $1,415.90
-- Total phone lines: 462
-- Total pool minutes: 252,700
-- Total minutes used: 263,402
At the time, the school system had started purchasing a
collective pool of minutes for users, and officials figured the
airtime was so abundant that personal use wouldn't affect the
bottom line. Because of this, the official policy limiting per-
sonal calls was ignored.

Rabies Alert Issued for Southside Area of Duval
Part of Jacksonville is under a rabies alert after a
Southside man was bitten by a rabid cat. Investigators said
they suspect a raccoon infected the cat.
Health Department officials said they found the rabid cat
and put it to sleep. The victim who was bitten is undergoing
"The victim was bitten on the leg -- two punctures. He's
being treated for the rabies series to prevent him from get-
ting rabies from the bite," said rabies quarantine officer
Hilton Manuel.The alert area covers a portion of the

months ago that we thought was really sick. We actually
called the police," said Southside resident Linda Suttles.
Symptoms of rabies include foaming of the mouth, wob-
bly or unsteady hind legs, and a loss of appetite
She said she wasn't expecting problems for her dog or
others in her neighborhood because while the infected cat

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known for its
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!
I have been designated as the babysitter and caregiver for my
younger brothers and sisters. My mother started having kids
again after I turned thirteen. Now I'm in college and I can't
get my homework completed, I stay tired all the time. I try to
talk to my mother but she is always fussing about her
boyfriends, my siblings' fathers and money. I don't want to
quit college or ruin my relationship but it looks as if that's where things are heading. What
can I do?
Tamyra Jackson (On-Line Reader)
Families stick together no matter what and in your case, you have to be the glue. You may
not see it, but your mother is doing the best she can with what she has. All you can do is
hang in there, help the best you can and push yourself harder to become better and achieve.
You should work out a schedule with your mother, college and the kids and be sure to rest
and stay focused. You will get your reward in the end.after you've done the right thing.
I want more out of my current relationship but I think my past is causing negativity
between us. I have been known to have more than one boyfriend and play the field but I've
changed. I'm ready to settle down but my past seems to haunt me on a regular basis. My
boyfriend tells me he would commit but he's afraid he can't trust me. What can I do to
prove that I've changed and can be trusted?
Anonymous (Charlotte, NC)
People believe that once you're a cheat, you will always be a cheat. Your lack of care for
your morals is giving you a dose of reality that you can't seem to swallow right now.
You've shown your boyfriend quite a few things when you thought he and others were not
looking. The only thing you can do is stay on the straight and narrow path in your relation-
ship, meet his expectations and demonstrate to him that you're on his team seeking
longevity and a future.
My cousin has betrayed me by getting with my ex-boyfriend. We had a break-up but I felt
there always hope to get back together. I'm having a hard time because of the family issue
and now they're having a baby together. I'm trying to control myself and keep it together
because he was seeing her when he was with me... I was doing fine and moving on until
he called wanting to have a fling. I'm torn between seeing him and telling my cousin. What
do I do?
Miserable But Holding On (Denver, CO)
If you think things are bad now, go ahead and get with him and you'll have a living night-
mare on your hands. Whether he's with your cousin, a friend or a stranger, you had your
chance, it didn't work out and now he's onto, someone else. You have enough time to hold
on to your sanity and find a relationship that's good for you. Hold your head high and let
the past be the past and although your cousin has him, realize that he's cheating on her but
it's not with you.

SLetter to the Editor
Overrated Evaluations of Dr. Joseph Wise
Rhetoric from various School Board Majority Representatives still have
not justified the undeserved high evaluations of Dr. Wise from the majority
members. Missing ingredients of factuality, objectivity, etc. still leave lots of
questions in the minds of many citizens.
Factualism should have been a critical basis for Dr. Wise's evaluations
because it would consider our 11 Failing schools, the high dropout rates, Dr.
Wise's elaborate number of absences, current & former students killed or in
jail, the widening achievement gap between Black & White students, Dr.
Wise's arrogant rebuttal to Cell Phone use, the decreasing Graduation Rates,
Dr. Wise disconnect with the African-American Community, Dr. Wise hav-
ing missed 96 of his Performance Targets, his arrogant challenge to one board
member to try to vote him out, etc.
Further, according to a News4Jax Survey, of 1,314 respondents, 78%
indicated that Dr. Wise was either Failing or Needs Improvement. Why is the
School Board's majority members' evaluations so overly rated when the
majority of the survey respondents and the two other board members have

Last month, I presented the budget
for the 2007/08 fiscal year to the City
Council. As you know, any budgeting
process is tough, and the property tax
rollback mandated by Tallahassee made
preparing this year's budget one of the
toughest challenges our city has ever
Because of this reform, we will be
operating under one of the leanest budg-
ets in recent city history. Additionally,
we will be reducing government expens- Mayor John Peyton
es and identifying new ways to pay for
the core services on which our citizens depend.
Our first step to responding to this drastic revenue loss was to look
inward. Cost increases and revenue reductions left us about $65 million out
of balance when we began the process. My team and I identified $38.5 mil-
lion in savings by eliminating duplication, reducing non-core services and
But, we cannot just cut our way to a balanced budget this time around.
To make up for the remaining $26.5 million shortfall while providing neces-
sary services to our taxpayers, I proposed a franchise fee on utility bills, a
garbage fee and a stormwater management fee. These fees will not be
imposed until mid-year to allow homeowners and businesses a chance to
plan for this new expense. And even taking these fees into account, the aver-
age homeowner in Jacksonville will still realize net savings this year from
the state-imposed millage rate rollback.
While the fees will provide for a balanced budget this year without mak-
ing it necessary to cut core services, their larger purpose is to provide an
alternate revenue source to prepare for the future. In the face of
Tallahassee's actions, the threat of further action, and the possible passage
of the constitutional amendment, it has become crucial for the city to diver-
sify its revenue sources. That means we will no longer depend so significant-
ly on the money we receive from property taxes to fund our critical servic-
The combined approach of cutting spending and diversifying revenue
was neither easy nor popular, but I believe it is the right thing to do for our
city and our future. Above all else, I am committed to doing what is right

Dick Gregory at 75
This year the Don't Believe the Hype Foundation
celebrated the 75th birthday of Dick Gregoi e. Yes.
right here in Dallas, Texas. Mind you, \%ith the ,
celebrity status of the one and only Richard "Dick"
Claxton Gregory and the milestones he has laid out in1
history, he could have been anywhere in the world on June 30, 2007. Oh, by the
way, some bowling did actually take place.
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 com-
pany 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 corporate misconduct.
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 conglomerate mind that makes your mind put all the dots together
sooner or later. He is absolutely amazingly exalting to listen to. He has had awak-
ening theories about the assassination of President Kennedy and the conflicting
facts that surrounded the government'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
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 counting minorities to becoming a nutritional guru.
It is interesting to note that here was a man in his prime, in demand, perform-
ing 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
abandoned 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.

congruence on much lower ratings?
One of the reasons appears to be the continuation of nepotism, cronyism,
racism, and even some tenents of aryanism in various circles in Jacksonville,
as apparently evidenced by City IT contracts awarded since 2006. Of course,
the majority board members should have known that their evaluation
approach would only help polarize this City even more and further marginal-
ize a segment thereof. Will we ever go beyond the nepotism, cronyism,
racism, aryanism, etc. that continues to prevent our being a real Better

* Sharpton Joins 'Jena' Fight
0 Caucus Vetos Southwick
Black Caucus Says
"'Wrong for 5th Circuit'
The Congressional Black Caucus, a coalition of African-
SAmerican congressmen in the House of Representatives,
Denounced the Senate Judiciary Committee's decision to
move Judge Leslie Southwick's nomination to the full
SSenate for a vote.
Conservative activists, however, are urging like-minded
Americans to press the Senate for a quick vote.
President Bush nominated Southwick to sit on the Fifth
Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans eight months ago.
Last Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 10-9
to send Southwick's nomination to the full Senate.
' In a statement, Congressional Black Caucus
Chairwoman Carolyn C. Kilpatrick said, "Judge
: Southwick's intolerant racial views and his fixed right-wing
Sworldview make him wrong for the Fifth Circuit."
She called the Fifth Circuit "the last line of enforcement
Sfor the federal rights of residents of Mississippi, Louisiana,
Sand Texas, which has the highest percentage of minority res-
Sidents in the United States."
Liberals have criticized Judge Southwick for his concur-
ring opinion in two controversial cases: one involving the
use of a racial slur in a workplace and the second involving
the rights of homosexual parents.
Rep. Bennie Thompson denounced the Judiciary
Committee for advancing Southwick's nomination, calling it
"a giant step backward for civil rights advocates every-
Southwick is unfit to serve on the federal bench,
Thompson said. "His record on issues of equal opportunity
and fairness, disqualify him."
Wade Henderson, president and CEO of the Leadership
Conference on Civil Rights, complained that "the commit-
tee's favorable vote for Southwick's confirmation is a slap in
the face to African-Americans and all people of good will."
"This president and his GOP predecessor have appointed
just as many African-Americans to the U.S. circuit courts as
President Clinton did, and twice as many as were appointed
From 1776 to 1976," said Hyman last Thursday when the
committee sent Southwick's nomination to the full Senate.
General Cooper Steps Down to
Protest Lack of Racial Diversity at
the University of South Alabama
J. Gary Cooper, a retired Marine Corps general, bank
president, and former ambassador to Jamaica, resigned his
position as a fundraiser for the University of South Alabama
in Mobile to protest the institution's lack of effort to promote
Cooper is a highly respected black leader in Mobile. He
was the chairman of the Commonwealth National Bank and
is a board member of the Alabama State Port Authority. In
2002 he became the first black member of the Country Club
In a letter to university president Gordon Moulton
announcing his resignation, General Cooper wrote, "It is my
firm belief that the university is not meeting its obligation to
the African-American community."
General Cooper said he has several major concerns.
Among them are:
Lack of tenured black faculty;
No program to retain current black students;
No black upper-level administrators;
Little effort to incorporate minority businesses as uni-
versity contractors; and
No outreach programs to blacks in the community.
Blacks make up nearly 18 percent of the undergraduate
students at the university. But only 4 percent of the faculty
is black. There is one African American among 21 top-level
administrators at the University of South Alabama.

Sharpton Joins the Struggle to Free 'Jena Six'
Former presidential candidate the Rev. Al Sharpton
denounced Sunday the criminal charges against six
teenagers dubbed the "Jena Six," in a case that has stirred
indignation across the board, but in particular, among civil
"We cannot have two levels of justice," Sharpton told a
mostly black crowd during a morning service at Trout Creek
Baptist Church, where some 300 people packed the tiny
church to hear his message.
"You cannot have some boys assault and charged with
nothing, some boys hanging nooses and finish the school
year and other boys charged with attempted murder and con-
spiracy. That's two levels ofjustice, and two levels of justice
is an injustice," Sharpton said as the crowd cheered and
Sharpton is the first national civil rights leader to visit
Jena to support the families of those involved in the case that
has sparked racial tensions in the small LaSalle Parish town.
Sharpton said Martin Luther King III, son of the slain
civil rights leader, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and members of
the Black Congressional Caucus have expressed their intent
to come to Jena as well.
The case, which caught the attention of hundreds of com-
munities and national media outlets, reportedly began in
September when Kenneth Purvis, a black student at Jena
High School, received permission from the school's princi-
pal to sit underneath a tree that had been previously used
only by white students.
The following day someone hung three hangman's noos-
es from the tree. A series of confrontations reportedly began
in the days following. A fire also broke out Nov. 30 destroy-
ing the school's main building, although the cause of the fire
is still unresolved.
The events are all too familiar to someone who has expe-
rienced Jim Crow laws, said Levi Stevenson, a Jena native
who now lives in Houston and who came to support the
youngsters. Stevenson is referring to laws that were
enforced between 1876 and 1965 that kept a "separate but
equal" status for black Americans.
"It doesn't seem like we have come too far. This is 2007
and you see that kids can't sit under a tree because it's some-
one else tree? That's unfair. This is unfair anytime,"
Stevenson said as he held a sign outside the church that read,
"drop the charges! Sixth Amendment!"
Stevenson, 58, said the case brings sad memories for
him, in particular because next to the church where he stood
with his sign is the former Goodpine High School, where he
graduated in 1967 during a time of segregation.
Prior to the church service, Sharpton visited the LaSalle
Parish Courthouse jail where 17-year-old Mychal Bell sits
awaiting sentencing. Bell is the only one of the Jena Six to
go to trial, and he's awaiting a Sept. 20 sentencing hearing
after being found guilty of aggravated second-degree bat-
tery and conspiracy to commit the same crime.
At the courthouse, Sharpton, Bell and Bell's parents,
Melissa Bell and Marcus Jones, held a private meeting and
prayed, Sharpton said.

Following the church service, Sharpton sharply criti-
cized LaSalle Parish District Attorney Reed Walters' prose-
cution of the case and encouraged government leaders and
members of the community to take a stand against injustice
by writing the U.S. Department of Justice and Gov.
"Gov. Blanco ought to be prepared to do whatever is nec-
essary, if for some reason "Mychal is not released" by a
court hearing, said Sharpton, who added that the governor
can then be petitioned for a special prosecutor to take over
the remaining five cases. "The governor needs to know that
the whole nation is watching her."

The Star -August 11, 2007
After smashing a 3-2 count out of the park to
become the new King of Swing, Barry Bonds has
shown that he intends to put some space between first
and second place. As of press-time Barry had upped the
record to 757 but the real question is where does Barry
go from here.
While Barry keeps saying he wants a World Series
ring, most folks who know him say his big goal now is
to bang out his 3,000-hit. Something that he could eas-
ily do next season, maybe before the All-Star break.
Ah next season... Where will Barry be playing
next season? With the Giants stuck in last place, a ros-
ter that's short on young players, and a farm system that
is of little current value, general manager Brian Sabean
is probably thinking it's time to rebuild.
All that points to a new home for Barry. Probably in
the AL where those 43 year-old lesg won't be required
to romp around the outfield.
The LA Angels of Anaheim look like the right place
for Barry to transition into retirement unless that
Grand Jury changes his plans. The Angels have the
deep pockets and they are currently 13th in the AL on
the HR chart.'
It was so good to see that tribute to Bonds after his
record breaking HR. Hank Aaron has again proven
what we all have known, that he is one of the classiest
legends of the game. He has set a standard for Barry
Bonds. It will be great if he can live up to that standard.
Tonight we see'the unveiling at least as much as
you can expect in a pre-season game of what Dirk
Koetter, now Jacksonville's offensive coordinator, hopes
to accomplish. Don't look for Leftwich to spend much
time on the field since early pre-season is when Del-Rio
and staff are still trying to finalize a roster. But, we will
see the concepts involved in Koetter's offense.
More throwing of the ball, more involvement by tight
ends and what Del-Rio calls an "Explosive Offense!"
Blacks in Baseball
Any time you get two baseball fans together the
question will come up. What is causing the big drop in
the number of black professional baseball players.
Currently less than 8-1/2 percent of the major
League players are black not counting the foreign born,,
according to the Institute for Diversity and Ethics and
That's a touch less than half the level it was at only
10 years ago. Some teams, such as the Atlanta Braves
and Houston Astros, have no black players on their ros-
A lot of things have been blamed for the decline.
Baseball trailing basketball and football in popularity,
especially among inner-city youth, lack of blacks in the
sport's front offices, lack of physical facilities to play
baseball in many urban areas and the lack of contempo-
rary black baseball heroes.
In my opinion it is this last factor more than any-
thing else. Basketball was in the doldrums until MJ put
Sthe game on his shoulders and carried it to new heights.
Baseball needs its own Michael Jordan!

lMarch 21st thru April 19th
SYour go-getter energy's at odds with the stuff
coming from the stars at the beginning of the
week. Take a passive approach, rather than an
aggressive one (and definitely avoid a passive-
aggressive tactic!). And don't worry, because
Thursday and Friday bring opportunities for
all sorts of pioneering, and even passion!
You're extra-convincing now -- work that
additional charm! As for the weekend, various
pitfalls may be in your cosmic path -- you'll
once again want to tread lightly. Calm stuff
around the house or physical activities outside
may be a better bet than big social plans.
April 20th thru May 20th
Fun times and affectionate friends (or more-
than-friends) are in your personal stars at the
beginning of the week. Don't work late, and
don't wait for the weekend! Around Thursday
and Friday, your health matters even more than
usual. Yes, you'll want to work out, but you
don't want an injury from overdoing it. Be sure
to pace yourself or partner up with someone
who helps you keep things slow and steady.
It's your emotional state that's highlighted this
weekend, and it could be less than stable.
Watch for having a short fuse, but be sure to
enjoy the passion the universe is sending!
May 21st thru June 21st
Check in with your mentor, your mom or other
VIPs in your life at the beginning of the week.
The stars say somebody's got a piece of very
useful advice for you; getting it may hinge on
asking the right questions (or a lot of them!),
though. On Thursday and Friday, you're extra
smart, which everyone knows equals extra
sexy! How about some intelligence-enhancing
.dates? Take a certain someone to a lecture, or
if you're single, hit the galleries, a museum
mixer or some other hotbed of fellow braini-
acs. As for the weekend, you'll do best if you
slow your pace -- burnout of one sort or anoth-
er is a distinct possibility.
June 22nd thru July 22nd
Your domestic, side's in full effect at the begin-
ning of the week. Don't be surprised if you go
into an out-of-season spring-cleaning frenzy at
home, reorganize your workspace in helpful
new ways or even spend lots of time cleaning
out your inbox. (Don't forget to back up those
files, too!) On Thursday and Friday, your idea
and someone else's may be at odds; the chal-
lenge is not to take it too personally. Work
toward common ground instead of being
touchy about turf. As for the weekend, some-
times you can be overcautious, but this time
you're right to hesitate. Wait for something
that's on your mind.
July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
You're less extravagant and less extroverted
than usual at the (beginning of the week, and
while it's less exciting, it's an excellent state
for saving and sorting through things. Give a
certain plan a necessary update now. On
Thursday and Friday, friends and fun and fab-
ulousness are back with a vengeance, and hot-
ter, sweeter stuffs in the stars, too. Make a
romantic move -- they'll love it (and you!).
'Family matters grab your attention this week-
end, as do lessons learned and memories both
bad and good. Slow down, get in touch (with
them and yourself) and think things through.
Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
You're getting plenty of gold stars if the stars
have their way as the week begins. Good effort
expended at work, on relationships or toward
your community is more than its own reward '-
enjoy the sweet stuff! On Thursday and
Friday, you're either acting on impulse or over-
thinking something -- or doing a bit of both.
Consult someone you trust (like your mentor,
mom or best friend) before making any major
commitments. As for the weekend, you've got
big ideas, big plans and the expectations to
match. The first two are great, but reel in what
you're hoping to get out of them for best
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd
Good manners count on Monday, and you
might have to do more than your fair share in
this regard. Take the high road -- you look
good up there. On Tuesday or Wednesday, a
one-on-one looks extremely productive. Will it
be a brainstorming session, a negotiation, a
heart-to-heart? Bring a new idea to whatever
kind of meeting you set up. At the end of the
workweek, you're focused on moving existing
concepts along,, tweaking and creating wiggle
room (whether on the job or personally). Make
plans to catch up with friends and family this
weekend; those bonds need nurturing, and the
nurturing can be funm.
Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
You're a person with a plan at the beginning of
the week, or you should be -- the stars smile on
whatever you put together. Preparation, far
from a waste of energy, is time well spent! On
Thursday or Friday, a certain choice may have
you throwing your hands up in the air, and not
because you just don't care -- it may be a big
deal. Try quieting your headspace and your
actual space, and let your true feelings well up
from inside. As for the weekend, don't expect
quiet at all -- expect applause, fireworks and
parties. You're hot, and it's totally obvious.
Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
Your boss may be on the opposite of your
greatest-hits list at the beginning of the week -
- and if a significant other, friend or your
mother is acting bossy, you're not loving them
right now, either. Use a little tact; this, too,
shall pass, so let it do that without any lasting
damage. All is better than well on Thursday
and Friday -- people love you, and it looks like
you're loving life. Choosing among all the
good stuff should be your biggest problem. As
for the weekend, something needs contempla-
tion and resolution. Give it due time and con-
Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
If there are facts to be found as the week
begins, you do the digging -- and very likely
enjoy the process as much as the results. Get
someone else involved -- maybe a research
assistant? -- for additional fun. On Thursday
and Friday, don't bet the farm or up the ante
without some serious risk assessment. At work
or in your personal life, the status quo might be
best for the moment. You're better equipped
for making a decision when the weekend
comes, both because of some helpful intro-
spection and cosmic intervention -- the latter
may be in the form of advice from a friend.
Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
Somebody may be insisting that they under-
stand what you're saying (or typing, or texting)
at the beginning of the week, but if you're still
skeptical, heed your instincts. You can't be too
careful or too clear now. On Thursday and
Friday, your attitude determines your altitude;
the latter can be up sky-high and have you all
starry-eyed if you purposely make the former
warmer. Greet everyone you meet with gen-
uine affection, and the universe will love you
right back. As for the weekend, the instinct to
nest may be strong, but you'll actually thrive
on the energy of others. Plan for a mix of the
Feb 19th thru Mlarch 20th
You're usually so accepting, but as the week
begins, you're looking at everyone and every-
thing with a very critical eye. It's a good thing
and likely to be very productive, but do be
tactful about sharing yotir sharp findings.
Money's likely to be a big deal around
Thursday and Friday, and you should be nei-
ther a borrower noi" a lender. Work out a budg-
et and help a friend do the same, rather than
handing out money dr a loan. As for the week-
end, trust is a must. If you're not feeling it, own
up to it; if you are, things can definitely go far.
From Actual Police Reports
Did You Hear About?...
JUST PLAYING? An officer was dis-
patched to the>,2800 block of Sophia St., in
reference to a dispute. Upon his arrival, he
met with Ms. S (victim), who stated her
live in boyfriend, Mr. D (suspect) was
intoxicated so she wanted to leave. While
trying to leave Mr. D (suspect) grabbed her r .
by the neck and choked her. Ms. J (victim
#2 and Ms. S's sister) told Mr. D (suspect)
that she was calling the police and Mr. D
(suspect) struck Ms. J (victim #2) on the
face while he was taking the phone away
from her. Mr. D (suspect) fled the area.
The officer observed no visible injuries to
either victim. The next day, the officer
responded back to the victim's residence after receiving a message that the sus-
pect had returned. Upon his arrival, he located the suspect in the residence Ms. J
opened the door. Mr. D stated that he was just playing when he put his hands on
Ms. Solomon's neck. Mr. D was arrested and transported. PDF.
WHY COULDN'T HE KEEP HIS HAND OUT OF HIS RIGHT POCKET?
- An officer observed a black male who appeared to be loitering at a gas station
located in the 2600 block of N. Myrtle Ave. He stopped and made contact with Mr.
JS (subject #1) and asked him what he was doing at this gas station. He stated he
was waiting to clean up. Mr. S stated the night manager asked him to clean up.
The officer made contact with the night manager and he stated he did not want Mr.
S on the property and that he did not tell him to clean up the parking lot. He also
wanted a trespass warning issued as well. The officer issued Mr. S a trespass
warning not to return to the property. As
.. the officer was speaking to Mr. S, he asked
him if he had anything illegal on his per-
son. He stated "NO." As the officer kept
speaking to him, he kept trying to put his
right hand in his front right pocket. The
S: --, officer asked him three times not to put his
Hands in his pocket. When he attempted to
S-.-. place his hand in his pocket again, the offi-
'- cer had to physically restrain him in hand-
cuffs for officer safety. During the pat
down for officer safety, the officer felt a
metal object in his front right pants pocket. Based on the officer's training and
experience, he believed it to be a crack pipe. The officer removed the object from
his front right pocket-and it was a metal crack pipe with residue. Mr. S was placed
under arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia and.resisting and opposing a
police officer. He was transported to the PDF. He did not qualify for an NTA due
to a previous arrest last month.
ENOUGH SAID! An officer observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed
west from Myrtle Ave. on W. 25th St. Before the officer was able to catch up with
the vehicle, the listed vehicle was turning from Grunthal St. onto W. 26th St.
When the officer caught up with the vehicle, he paced it in his marked patrol vehi-
cle at 40mph in a 30 mph zone for approxi-
mately 1/4 of a mile. The officer ran the
attached tag and it showed to be registered to ,
an address which was approximately 1/2 mile
away. The officer attempted to conducted a ....
traffic stop on the listed vehicle at W. 30th and
Fairfax but the vehicle continued toward the
direction of his residence. The suspect was
asked to step out of the vehicle and was /
detained. The suspect was asked two times if
he had any guns on his person and he refused
to answer. The suspect then jerked his hands .
away from the officer's grip and was pushed up against the police care. The sus-
pect then tried to push the officer's car and was taken to the ground. The suspect
was searched on the ground and placed in the patrol car. There were no visible
signs of injury on the suspect. The suspect refused to answer any questions and
when his wife (registered owner) began to give the officer the suspect's informa-
tion and talk to the officer, the suspect told her to shut the fuk up and stop talk-
ing to those pus_y a_s crackers, the suspect was cited, arrested and transported to
the PTDF. The vehicle was released to the owner.

Samuel L. Jackson Is Superb In Resurrecting The Champ
.,. l i
By Rych McCain,
Photos 2007 Yari Film
It is a lazy afternoon
at the famous Four
Seasons Hotel in
Beverly Hills where we
have gathered once again
to interview actor extra-
ordinaire Samuel L.
Jackson. In his latest
film he plays an over-
boxing contender who
tells everybody that he is
the famed contender
Satterfield." The idea of
this film is that a Denver
Times sports reporter
name Erik Kernan
(played by Josh
Hartnett), is struggling to
make a name for himself
because he is living in
the shadow of his late
legendary sports radio
host father. One night he
stumbles across a home-
less man who claims to
be the former boxing
Kernan then writes a fea-
ture which gives his
career the lift it needs but
hidden agendas come
out to derail it all.
ance in this role could
very well end up with an
because he is just that
good. But then again,
Samual L. Jackson is a
master at his craft and is
one of busiest leading
actors in Hollywood.
Why is he driven to work
so much? He chuckles at
the question then gets
serious. "When I go to
my trailer for downtime
on the set, I read scripts
because I'm looking for
a job. I know actors, that
when you send them a
script they'll say I
haven't read it yet
because I'm working on this movie.
It's like what in the hell are you
talking about? Even if you are stay-
ing in character, you still have time
to read a script. Or if your cell
phone rings and it's your agent
telling you they have another job for
you that's going to pay you 12 mil-
lion dollars and you say I can't talk
to you right now. Give me a break!"
Jackson has a lot of screen time
on this film and he is made up to
look like a wasted, aged homeless
man. He even uses a different voice
that is -frail and barely audible at
times. Was the make-up a hindrance
to Jackson's performance? His
response is "The make-up was not
that heavy or restrictive. They just
pull your skin tight, put this stuff on
it and let it go and it wrinkles."
Jackson also consulted his dentist to
make dentures of jacked up, brown,
dingy, tented teeth. He says it was
the first time he had to go to the
dentist to do something backward
and that he did a good job.
Jackson's interviews are always
filled with laughs sprinkled with his
sharp observations of everyday life.
He is a man who tells it like it is but
he also keeps his perspectives on
focus. Does Jackson actually enjoy
seeing himself on the big screen?
He's quick with that answer, "When
I was doing theater, I always want-
ed to watch the play I was in with
me in it and I couldn't. So this
(film) is the perfect venue for me to
watch myself do what I do."
Jackson them reminisces about his
early childhood desires to be in the
movies. "I enjoy movies. I've
always wanted to be in them. When
I was a kid, my friends and I would
go to the movies and when we came
home we would pretend to be
everyone in the movie. We would
reenact the stuff."
As far as future characters are
concerned Jackson .emphasizes,
"You always look for somebody
that is the opposite of you that gives
you the opportunity to explore some
aspect emotionally that you don't
get to explore normally or experi-
ence. Movies are a very safe place
to try things, especially relation-
ships. You can say and do stuff to
people and at the end of it, you can
laugh and say, wow that was good."
Samuel Jackson as The Champ.
Erik (Josh Hartnett) and Champ (Samuel L.
Jackson) read newspaper.

You can check out anoth-
er of Rych's teens in the

Houston rapper Trae will
drop his highly anticipated
sophomore album "Life
Goes On," September 25th.
To hold you over until then,
he has a mixtape hitting the
streets called "Trae Tha
Truth," with several bang-
ing tracks that feature
guests Lil :Wayne, Yung
Joe, Gorilla Zoe, Styles P
and others. UGK have their
new LP Underground
Kings in stores now. The
single from it i.e.,
Anthem" featuring Outkast
is on fire being the
group's fist debut at
of their career. It is the #1
most played video on
MTV2 and the #2 most
played video on BET
with over 700 BDS spins

people on earth), who
celebrated her 26th year

Pictures stars Rosario
Dawson, Chad Faust and
Marcus Patrick. It was
produced by Morris S.
Levy, Rosario Dawson
and Talia Lugacy. This
film is basically about a
female college student
named Maya (Dawson)
who gets raped by a fel-
low student named Jared
(Faust) and she exacts
revenge by setting him up
to be raped by a' buff,
rough and tough male
booty buster named
Adrian (Patrick). The
film is way too slow and
confusing until the point
of Maya's rape. Before
that, what was the pur-
pose of this film? The
male on male rape scene
was way too long to the
point of being a gay
porno flick. It went on
and on as if the writers
couldn't think of any
