When we look at the amount of crime
during the past week, fear sets in all of us.
The birth rate of Black America now
varies from zero to negative population
growth because we are not having, as a cou-
ple, our share of the 2.1 children needed to
replace each parent. Along with not keeping
up with our population growth, many mem


bers of the Black community are dying
because of criminal acts or medical condi-
tions, including health conditions based
upon lack of medical treatment and diseases
that can be avoided.
Black America cannot afford to decrease
our population through the violence we are
presently experiencing .throughout the


United States. We are decreasing our popu-
lation's ability to continue through prisons,
drugs and other behavioral problems that
must cease.
When one talks about the "no snitching"
rule, it must be understand this is not a theo-
ry for the entire population, only for those in
certain categories. "No snitch" is and has


been through-
out the world, in many societies, including
Italians, organizations, including the'police,
governmental organizations and many pro-
fessions. The practice is old but it is not
used when it is harming the organization or
its members.

Readers were asked last

Halle Berry was preg-

said she was not.
Well, this week, the 41-
year-old (not 49-year-old
as printed in error last
week), made the
announcement: "Yes, I
am three months preg-
nant." "Gabriel and I are
beyond excited, and I've
waited a long time for
this moment in my life!"
Gabriel Aubry, 31,

Mayor's Budget Forum
at Ritz Theatre Included
Media and Community

Mayor John Peyton scheduled a town hall meet-
ing to discuss his proposed budget. He had ques-
tions from the audience and the press but was
unable to get them all in and finally asked one of
the participants to talk with him in another area of
the,facility. He further advised that all of the ques-
tions that had been presented in writing would be
answered through the Times Union.
When the meeting appeared to be heading
in a disorderly manner, the mayor, slipped out the
back door, according to sources, and left. The
video for the forum should appear on the city's
website for those who may wish to view at least
one hour of it.
The City Council will vote on the budget at
the end of September.


Loaded B-52 Flew Over Us


A B-52 bomber was mistakenly armed with six nuclear war-
heads and flown over several states for over three hours.
According to reports, this had never happened before but caused
a lot of fear. The missiles were being decommissioned and were
mounted onto pylons on the bomber's wings. An investigation is
being instigated to find why they were not removed.


FBI Spied on Mrs. King


Mrs. Coretta
Scott King, wife of
civil rights leader,
Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr, one of the
founders of SCLC,
in the background.


Federal agents spied on the widow of the Rev. Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. for several years after his assas-
sination in 1968, according to newly released docu-
ments that reveal the FBI worried about her following
in the footsteps of the slain civil rights icon.
In memos that reveal Coretta Scott King being
closely followed by the government, the FBI noted
concern that she might attempt "to tie the anti-Vietnam
movement to the civil rights movement."
Four years after Dr. King's death, the FBI closed its
file on Coretta Scott King, saying, "No information
has come to the attention of Atlanta which indicates a
propensity for violence or affiliation of subversive ele-
mehts," according to a memorandum dated November
30, 1972.
The documents were obtained by Houston televi-
sion station KHOU in a story published Thursday.
Mrs. King died in January 2006 at the age of 78.

In the 1940s and 50s, a
very small but very com-
mitted band of highly
trained NAACP lawyers
launched a war in the
nation's courts to end
legal apartheid in
American education.
Their leader was the bril-
liant Charles Hamilton
Houston, who unlike his
partner Thurgood
Marshall, is one the
unsung heroes of that cru-
sade. Another key mem-
ber of this team was
Oliver W. Hill, who died
on August 5th at the age
of 100.
Hill was part of an
elite group of attorneys
trained and mentored by
Houston, who had headed
Howard University Law
School since 1929.
Marshall and Hill gradu-
ated first and second in
the law school's 1933
graduating class.
Together with other mem-
bers of the NAACP Legal
Defense and Educational
Fund legal team, they
were to make history with
their victory in the U.S.
Supreme Court's land-
mark Brown v. Board of
Education decision 'of
1954.


Y.,
.:-..~


Legendary civil rights attorney Oliver Hill receiving the
Presidential Medal of Freedom.


Brown actually
encompassed five major
cases challenging school
,segregation around the
country. One of those
cases was Davis' v.
County School Board of
Prince Edward County, in
which Oliver Hill was the
plaintiffs lead attorney.
In April 1951, 16-year-
old Barbara Rose Johns
organized a student strike
protesting the deplorable
conditions at segregated,
all-Black Moton High
School in Farmville,
Virginia. The school had
no gymnasium, cafeteria,
infirmary or teachers'
restrooms. Because of
the overcrowded condi-
tions, some students had
to be taught in a school
bus and in three buildings
covered with tarpaper.
During the two-week
protest, involving 450
students, Johns requested
legal assistance from the
NAACP branch office in
Richmond.
In May 1951, Oliver
Hill and Spottswood
Robinson, another mem-
ber of the Marshall legal
team, filed a lawsuit on
behalf of 117 students
calling for Virginia's
school segregation laws
to be struck down. A
three-judge federal dis-
trict court panel unani-
mously rejected the suit,
upholding Virginia's "sep-
arate but equal" policy
while ordering the state
to "equalize" conditions
at the school. The
Supreme Court over-
turned the decision as part
of its Brown ruling.
Oliver Hill knew what
the Supreme Court was
eventually to assert in its
Brown decision that
segregated schools were
inherently unequal. Most
southern states deliber-
ately administered sys-
tems of education in
which schools that Black
students attended were
inferior.by design. For
example, in Virginia in
the first part of 20th cen-
tury, the only way a Black
student could receive a
high school diploma was


too attend a private high
school, usually operated
by a religious denomina-
tion Catholic,
Methodist, Episcopal or
Presbyterian. Many
Black Virginia county
schools offered classes
only up to the eighth
grade.
Raised in Washington,
D.C., Oliver Hill spent
most of his professional
life in Virginia. He
became interested in a
legal career when an
uncle died and left him a
copy of the U.S.
Constitution. He dreamed
of working to overturn
the Supreme Court's 1896
Plessy v. Ferguson "sepa-
rate but equal" ruling.
His stellar six-decade
career as a civil rights
attorney began in 1940
when he won his first
case in Norfolk, Virginia,
gaining equal pay for
Black teachers. Over
time, he fought for and
won $50 million in better
pay and improved schools
for Black people in
Virginia. He took the
antidiscrimination strug-
gle to the areas of voting
rights, jury selection and
worker protections.
SHill was a man of
indomitable courage who
triumphed over adversity
throughout his life.
When his law practice in
Roanoke failed during the
Great Depression, he had
to wait tables in
Washington, D.C., until
he could open a law
office in Richmond in
1939. JHe continued his
crusade for racial equality
in the face of cross burn-
ings on his lawn and other
threats to his life and that
of his family. It is report-
ed that municipal officials

in Richmond sent ambu-
lances, fire trucks and
hearses to his home at 15
minute intervals to fright-
en him. He lost what
would have been a his-
toric election to the
Virginia General
Assembly in 1947. But in
1948, he was elected to
Richmond's City Council,
the first African
American to do so since
Reconstruction. In 1961,
President John F.
Kennedy named him to
the Federal Housing
Administration as an
assistant to the
Commissioner.
We are all standing on
the shoulders of Oliver
Hill. He helped estab-
lished the legal founda-
tion for many civil rights
gains after Brown,
including the Civil Rights
Act of 1964 and the
Voting Rights Act of
1965. Because of the
tireless strivings of Oliver
Hill and the courageous
band of civil rights
lawyers of which he was
a- member, the major
underpinnings of de jure
discrimination, now vir-
tually unknown to a
whole generation, were
destroyed, paving the
way for more integrated
education and the elimi-
nation of racial bias in all
areas of our social, eco-
nomic and political life.
President Bill Clinton
awarded Oliver Hill the
Presidential Medal of
Freedom, our nation's
highest civilian honor.
Today this good man and
stalwart champion of
equality deserves our
grateful farewell.

,' : -. i is a season
and a time
to every purpose under the heav-
en. A time to be born, and a time
to die. "-Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.
No one wants to talk about
death and funerals. Too depress-
ing. Unfortunately, death is a fact
of life and there simply is no way
to avoid it. For indeed there is a
"time to be born and a time to
die."
You may want a traditional
funeral service with visitation
and a member of the.clergy con-
ducting services at a church or a
funeral home. Would you want
an open or closed casket? Maybe
you want a special friend to do
the eulogy or family members to
read scripture passages or poetry.
Any favorite hymns?
First, you should shop
around and talk to a few funeral
directors. Yes, let your fingers do
the walking-comparing prices
for such things as casket,
embalming, ant the cost for pro-
fessional services.
Resist one-stop shopping,
which can include such things as


prayer cards. thank-you notes.
and guest registers-they add up
qiiickl MINanN opt tor the funer-
al home in their neighborhood
for personalized services.
Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth bur-
ial, a cemetery plot should be
purchased; if above ground, a
mausoleum crypt. If cremation is
the choice, plan disposition of
the ashes. Do you want them
stored in a columbarium niche ie
buried? Maybe you prefer to
have your ashes scattered?
An option some people take
is to donate orgais and tissues to
a medical school (have a dondr
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 cremnated you don't
hold a funeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

A Lovely Palette Award Celebration

At The Ritz

The Ritz Theatre & LaVilla Museum was the setting for
the City Kids Art Factory's First Annual Palette Award
Celebration. As guests entered the lobby of The Ritz they
were captivated by the immense artistic creativity of the
young participants at The City Kids Arts Factory (CKAF).
These kids are extraordinarily talented and the idea of auc-
tioning their art as a fundraiser for the organization along
with honoring a renowned Florida artist was 'pure genius'.
Even though each had a particular favorite whatever one
chose to bid on, the true gift was leaving the event with mas-
terpieces done by promising youngsters.
Established in 1997 by founder and professional artist
Daniel R. Wynn to provide a safe place in a positive envi-
ronment for kids to learn about art in their community, City
Kids Art Factory's programs have consistently provided area
students with the opportunity to participate in a quality art
program that would not otherwise be available.
In presenting the recipient of City Kids Art Factory's
first annual Palette Award to R. L. Lewis, Jr. one of Florida's
most versatile "original" Highwaymen Artist*, Board mem-
ber Dr Rowena Rhodes Stewart stated prior to presenting
the award tb R.L. Lewis, "I believe in Art History... Art can
empower you to do whatever you imagine... .We are empow-
ering our kids though Art...We've always had artists.....Art
is a universal language. Mr. Lewis' works are seen both
nationally and internationally. He has taught for thirty-two
years, is a member of the Florida Artist's Hall of Fame, and
one of the original Highwaymen."
In his acceptance remarks, R. L. Lewis advised, "We
should never give up on people as all fruit doesn't ripe at the
same time." According to his son, Robert L. Lewis, III who
spoke during the event, "He has not only sold many of his
works but has additionally educated and exposed thousands
of students and adults during the past four decades to his
"GOD bred" artistic talents."
City Kids Arts Factory (CKAF) provides art classes to
children and youth in the Durkeeville neighborhood or who
otherwise are not able to access quality arts programs on a
regular basis. All classes are free of charge and led by local
professional artists experienced in working with youth.
Many of the youth, if not for CKAF, would not have regular
opportunities for art activities. Program activities are con-
ducted during the winter and spring school breaks, and for
six to eight weeks during the summer. Each activity takes
place at CKAF's studio, which is located at 8th Street and
Myrtle Avenue. Classes are developed and implemented by
local artists. Each session starts with a program theme and a
curriculum is then developed around a subject such as a
famous artists, artistic style or culture. Each session typical-
ly has a different artist. At the end of each session, students
will have demonstrated a substantial understanding of a par-
ticular art form and will complete their own individual works
of art. All artwork created by the students are placed on
exhibit at the Art Factory.
With Gregory Owens as board president and board
members James (Carl) Davis, Sr., Crystal Ganpath,
Marcus Haile, Berdell Knowles (Secretary), Hosuk (Kim)
Lee, Kenneth E. Nixon, MD, Elizabeth Rodriquez
(Treasurer), Madeline Scales-Taylor (Past President), Dr.
Rowena Stewart (Vice President), Cleve Warren, Dr.
Carolyn Williams, PhD., and Daniel Wynn (Emeritus-Ex-
Officio), CKAF continues to provide excellent opportunities
for budding artist.
This annual event was beyond delightful!!
The Highwaymen Artists were the beginning of
Florida's contemporary art tradition. Their individual styles
depict Florida's natural beauty.
It all started in the 50s When a small number of African
Americans dedicated their talents and livelihoods to painting
the Florida landscape. With the friendship and encourage-
ment from local landscape artist A. E. "Bean" Backus, these
young Fort Pierce artists developed their individual tech-
niques and rendered waterscapes, backcountry marshes, and
inlets with a raw beauty and mystique, which became well-
known vintage Floridian images. From the beginning, there
were people who collected their paintings. Later, their art-
work became noted for introducing the Indian River School
and the Backus School movements and the Ft. Pierce artists
became known to the public as the Florida Highwaymen.

Black Enterprise Pulls th


Plug on Eddie Griffin for

Using the N-word
MIAMI Comedian
and actor Eddie Griffin ....
received a rude awaken-
ing at a recent perform-
ance when his act was
cut short for repeatedly
using the N-word.
Griffin, who head-
lined a soldout show at
Black Enterprise's 14th ..., te a
annual Golf and Tennis
Challenge in Miami on
Friday, was about 10 Eddie Griffin
minutes into his N-word
and profanity-laced act
when publisher Earl
Graves showed him who
was in charge by turning
off the mike. Then
Graves appeared on
stage with a cord and
plug in one hand and
working microphone in
the other.
"We at Black
Enterprise will not allow
our culture to go back- Earl GGraves, Sr.
wards," Graves said,
addressing the crowd of
about 1,000 at the sold-out event last Friday."Black
Enterprise stands for decency, black culture and digni-
ty, and we will pay Mr. Griffin all that we owe him but
we will not allow him to finish the show if that's the
way he's going to talk;"
Graves received.a standing ovation for his actions.
The Rev. Al Sharpton, who preached at the event the
next day released a statement about Griffin's routine and
Grave's action.
"It signified that we at National Action Network are
not alone in the fight to end the demeaning and racist
language that has allowed our people to aid in their
own victimization, for years," Sharpton said, adding
that it was fitting that a pre-eminent magazine for suc-
cessful African-Americans should take such a stand.
"Eddie Griffin has the right to say what he wants to
say, but we have the right to protest what he says and
will hold everyone to these same standards. I have
nothing personal against Mr. Griffin, but I will contin-
ue to fight tirelessly to end the indecency that is setting
us back a hundred years."
The NAACP held a public "burial" for the N-word.

Black Student Makes Aviation History



e Black Colleae Student Makes Aviation History


From the Streets to the Sky: a Flight Around the World


Born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in inner-city Miami,
Bagington hopes his historic flight will inspire other young
people to resist the negative influences of the streets and
work toward their dreams. As a teenager, Barrington and his
friends shared a sense of hopelessness about their futures, as
there was little incentive or opportunity for minority youth in
the inner city to pursue professional
careers. He earned good grades in
high school but saw a football
scholarship as his only route to col-
lege. Then one afternoon, working
in his parents' Christian bookstore,
Barrington began talking with a
customer, a Jamaican airline pilot,
Captain Gary Robinson, who invit-
ed him to the airport the next day to
see the cockpit of the Boeing 777 jet 3 J
he flew for United Airlines. That
day changed the young man's life
forever.
Barrington was just 15 but had
found his passion. He started spend-
ing afternoons and weekends at the
airport, washing planes for private
aircraft owners in exchange for half-
hour flights or money he could use for flying lessons. Every
evening he practiced flying on his own using $40 Microsoft
Flight Simulator software. Focused on the dream of becom-
ing a pilot, he turned down college football scholarships and
enrolled in a community college where his tuition was partly
covered by a Florida Bright Future Scholarship based on his
high marks in high school.
Barrington spent every free moment thinking about avia-
tion, doing odd jobs to pay for flight lessons and speaking to
church, school, and community groups, such as "5000 Role
Models," about career opportunities for youth in the aviation
field. Before long, his volunteer efforts were noticed by com-
munity leaders in Miami, who awarded him a joint Air
Force/Florida Memorial University Flight Awareness
Scholarship that would cover college tuition and flying les-
sons.
In 2003, Barrington enrolled in Florida Memorial
University where he excelled in both academic and flight
training courses. Over the next few years, he continued his
volunteer work as he earned his Private, Commercial Pilot,
and Flight Instructor licenses as well as his Instrument
Rating.
In 2005, the young pilot founded a nonprofit organization,
Experience Aviation, Inc., to address the significant shortage
of youth pursuing careers in aviation and aerospace.
Supported by a $10,000 grant from Miami Dade
Empowerment Trust, a federally funded economic develop-





.11,
,:"- .' 'l


ment group, he offered information and guidance programs
to young people in South Florida that included touring planes
at the airport and learning how to use a flight simulator.
Given the success of that program, the Empowerment Trust
increased its commitment to $75,000 to reach more youth in
the community. Barrington used those funds to set up the first
Experience Aviation Learning Center,
using donated computers and Microsoft
Flight Simulator software, at Miami's
Opa-locka Airport.
The Columbia 400 aircraft that car-
ried Barrington on his World Flight
Adventure has its own story. In 2003,
Barrington began calling aircraft manu-
facturers with the unlikely request to bor-
row, lease, or donate a plane he could use
to make aviation history. When no one
said yes, he decided to ask manufacturers
of the various components to donate just
one of their individual products to him;
he also asked Columbia, an aircraft man-
ufacturer, whether they'd agree to assem-
ble the plane if he could produce the
parts.
During the next year, with support
and guidance from Miami Executive Aviation, he visited avi-
ation trade shows throughout the country and secured more
than $300,000 in donated components-the engine, tires,
cockpit systems, seats, and so forth-and Columbia built him
the world's fastest single-engine piston airplane, ready to be
modified with extended fuel tanks a few weeks before the
global flight. In addition, he received fuel support from
Chevron that enabled him to train 'for the global flight and
visit schools throughout the country.
Barrington also approached Microsoft, who offered to
host a flight blog during the trip and donate free Flight
Simulator software to students taking part in Experience
Aviation programs. Two satellite communications companies
have also donated a tracking system that will enable students
to join Barrington's flight, in real time, through a download
from the Internet. In addition, a software development com-
pany has created a lifelike simulation of Barrington in the
cockpit of his plane.
Barrington is an inspiring role model for children and
adults alike. Though he started his aviation career with few
financial resources, he has continued to pursue his goals with
the self-confidence of an entrepreneur who sees no limits to
what he can achieve. Having left the city streets for a future
in the sky, he hopes his World Flight Adventure will encour-
age other young people to leave their fears behind and reach
for the stars.

Black

Children

Left Out of

Irish

Schools
DUBLIN, Ireland -
Almost all the children
who could not find ele-
mentary school places
in a Dublin suburb this
year were black, the
government said
Monday, highlighting
Ireland's problems
integrating its increas-
ingly diverse popula-
tion.
About 90 children
could not find school
places in the north
Dublin suburb of
Balbriggan a town of
more than 10,000 peo-
ple with two elemen-
tary schools. Local
educators called a
meeting over the
weekend for parents
struggling to find
places and .said they
were shocked to see
only black children.
"That overwhelmed

Breast

Cancer

More

Deadly for

Black

Women
Black women are
more likely than other
women. to develop
tumors that do not
respond to common hor-
mone-based treatments,
according to a study to
be presented at an
American Society of
Clinical Oncology con-
ference that begins on
Friday.
The study, led by M.
Catherine Lee, a clini-
cal lecturer at the
University of Michigan
Comprehensive Cancer
Center's department of
surgery, is the largest to
indicate a biological
factor as the cause of
black women's
increased mortality
from the disease.
Previous research has
attributed fewer mam-
mograms and less
aggressive treatment to
the racial disparity.
Black women are less
likely than white
women to develop
breast cancer but are
more likely to die from
the disease.
For the study, Lee
and colleagues analyzed
data on more than
170,000 breast cancer
diagnoses from 1998
that were included in
the American College of
Surgeons' National
Cancer Data Base. Ten
percent of the cases
were among black
women.
Researchers focused
on 95,500 women
Whose cancers were


what to make of it. I
just find it extremely
concerning," said
Gerard Kelly, principal
of a school with a mix-
ture of black and white
students in the nearby
town of Swords.
Some parents ques-
tioned why white fami-
lies who had moved
this year into the town
had managed to over-
come the registration
deadlines to get their
children into schools.
Some also com-
plained that Ireland's
school system was dis-
criminating against
them on the basis of
religion. About 98 per-
cent of schools are run
by the Roman Catholic
Church, and the law
permits them to dis-
criminate on the basis
of whether a prospec-
tive student has a cer-
tificate confirming
they were baptized
into the faith. Some of
the African applicants
were Muslim, mem-
bers of evangelical
Protestant denomina-
tions or of no religious
creed,.


invasive rather than
confined to a milk duct.
They found that roughly
39% of such tumors in
black women were
estrogen receptor-nega-
tive, or ER-negative,
compared with 22% of
tumors in white women.
ER-negative tumors are
resistant to common
hormone-based thera-
pies like tamoxifen and
are more difficult to
treat. The high preva-
lence of ER-negative
tumors among black
women was consistent
regardless of the age or
stage at which they
,were diagnosed, the
study found.
The study also found
that black women were
diagnosed at an average
age of 57, compared
with 62 for white
women. Black women's
tumors also were more
advanced than white
women's, with 29% of
black women having
stage 1 tumors that had
not yet spread, com-
pared with 42% of white
women.
Lee said,
"Differences in tumor
biology have a signifi-
cant impact on sur-
vival," adding, "The
fact that breast cancers
in black women are
more aggressive biolog-
ically suggests that we
need to focus more of
our research energy on
developing better treat-
ments targeting ER-neg-
ative tumors." She said
the "findings also point
to a need for improved
cancer education and
screening in black
women, particularly
those in younger age
groups"


Oprah Winfrey Contemplating

Broader Role in Obama's Presidential


Campaign

Although the Obama-Oprah
bumper stickers seen around the
country are meant to be a joke,
there may be some truth in the
comedic stunt. Oprah Winfrey
has already endorsed Barack
Obama but now she may be play-
ing a part in his campaign.

She is in negotiations with
his' advisers about playing a
broader role, in the campaign -
possibly as a surrogate speaker
or an outspoken advocate or
simply bringing the power of her
name--a household word--to
benefit his presidential run.On
Saturday, Winfrey will host her
first presidential fund-raising
affair, at the Promised Land, her
17-hectare estate in California -
an event expected to raise more
than $US3 million for Senator
Obama's campaign.
The Winfrey and Obama
machines have maintained
silence on the exact nature of
what her role will be, but the
idea of her appearing in televi-
sion ads and other appeals is
very much in play. In a recent
interview with Larry King on
CNN she said: "My money isn't
going to make any difference.
My value to him my support of
him is probably worth more
than any other cheque that I
could write."
Historically, there is little evi-
dence that celebrity endorse-
ments have done much to draw
voters. But several political ana-
lysts believe Winfrey's involve-
ment could be different. "When
you think about Oprah's success


in selling books, you can't laugh
off the fact that she can sway
many, many people," said Donna
Brazile, who managed Al Gore's
2000 campaign.
"When you think about
Oprah's success in selling books,
you can't laugh off the fact that


Senator Barack Obama


Oprah Winfrey


she can sway many, many peo-
ple," Brazile, a Democratic
political strategist, told the
Washington Post.

"We are thrilled that Oprah
Winfrey is hosting an event on
behalf of Senator Obama,"
Candice Tolliver, a spokes-
woman for Obama, told
B lackAmerica Web. com
Wednesday. "It's a great oppor-
tunity for our supporters from
across the country to demon-
strate their support and enthusi-
asm for Senator Obama's candi-
dacy."
On MSNBC's "Hardball"
Wednesday night, author
Michael Eric Dyson, who has
endorsed Obama, called Winfrey
"an extraordinarily influential
woman" who can turn social cap-
ital into political capital.
"She has sided with a man
who brings new hope and vision
to America," Dyson said. "It's
better to have Oprah than not to
have her."
But Dyson's wife, Marcia,
who supports Clinton, said
Winfrey "is not omnipotent" and
questioned "how much impact"
Winfrey will have in her first
venture into presidential politics.
"We're not talking about
books," Marcia Dyson said.
Winfrey's television program
reaches 8.4 million viewers each
weekday afternoon, according to
the most recent Nielsen num-
bers. Her Web site reaches 2.3
unique viewers each month, "O,
the Oprah Magazine," has a cir-
culation of 2 million, she circu-
lates a weekly newsletter to
420,000 fans, and 360,000 peo-
ple have subscribed to her Web
site for daily "Oprah Alerts" by

hard every day to earn and keep the trust of the community we serve. We have
been very active in getting people to work with the police to tell what they know,
so law abiding citizens can "own" their neighborhoods.
"For those who do not want to call or contact the police directly, there is the
nationally recognized Crime Stoppers program for tips. They guarantee anonymi-
ty and we support their work.
"To enter into dialogue, publicly or privately, with any citizen or group that is
opposed to standing up against crime and criminal behavior is something I will
not do. It is irresponsible for anyone to encourage others to support the code of
silence created by criminals to protect criminals.
"Our energy is 100% focused on enhancing relationships with those who
believe that working with the police is how we create a society that honors the
law and wants justice to be served."

Letters in response to "snitching"
National President, Southern Christian Leader Conference


SCLC Declares "Stop Snitching Campaign an
Insult to Law Abiding Citizens"

Proposes Conflict Resolution Training for Staff of Florida Times Union and
Jacksonville Police Department in Concert with Jacksonville SCLC

September 5, 2007. Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Charles Steele, Jr., President and CEO of the
Southern Christian Leadership Conference released the following statement this afternoon
in regards to a growing campaign by members of the hip-hop industry.
"The Southern Christian Leadership Conference cannot in good moral consciousness sit
idly by while a segment of our community would propose the outlandish idea that law
abiding citizens should not cooperate with law enforcement to solve crimes that occur in
our community. Indeed, it is incumbent that African-Americans cooperate fully with law
enforcement to rid our communities of the drugs and violence that permeate many of our
communities, and in some cases force law abiding citizens to live in a constant state of
fear.
However, a recent statement by Jacksonville SCLC Chairman Juan Gray that he would
not talk to the police because he does not trust the police was not a statement of support
of this ridiculous "Stop Snitching" campaign but a representation of large segment of our
population that has a legitimate fear of some law enforcement agencies. The issue of
police corruption is real in this country and we cannot simply ignore these feelings of mis-
trust. Instead, we must educate the community andlaw enforcement to work together and
we must demand that the criminal justice system is reformed.
Therefore, my office will transmit a letter this week to the Florida Times Union and
Jacksonville Police Department offering the services of the SCLC to train its employees
in Kingian nonviolence. Our Jacksonville SCLC Chapter has already engaged in prelim-
inary conversations with the newspapers leadership, and SCLC is prepared to make
Jacksonville a priority for not only nonviolence but increasing economic opportunities so
that our young people do not have to be placed in a position of turning to crime."

Jacksonville of the NAACP
September 5, 2007
The Jacksonville Branch of the NAACP wants to make clear its position on the current
controversy over whether African Americans have a responsibility to cooperate with the
police when they witness crimes perpetrated by other blacks or anyone else.
This so-called snitching controversy regarding black-on-black crime has been in the news
recently. The issue is becoming more and more important due to the impact of crime in our
communities, on families, children and on the community in general. Recent statistics pub-
lished by the Times-Union make it clear that blacks committing crimes against other blacks
is a critical issue.

The position of the NAACP is clear.
1. We, as African Americans, have a responsibility to do everything we can to reduce the
crime rate in our communities. This means reporting crimes to the authorities in order that
these crimes can be solved, people who commit them can be brought to justice and our com-
munities can become safe places for people to live.
2. Those who witness a murder or other crime have a responsibility to the community to
step up and stick with their stories. Too often, credible witnesses change their stories in ways
that prevent convictions in court. Otherwise the small criminal element in our communities
will continue to roam free.
3. The great majority of African Americans are law-abiding, hard-working, tax-paying cit-
izens who want a peaceful community where we can raise our families without fear. To sug-
gest that we withhold information that will make our communities safe and peaceful is just
not common sense.
The NAACP acknowledges the high level of distrust of the police that exists in our com-
munities. Actions by some, but certainly not all, police have led to this distrust. The
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office bears a responsibility to weed out those officers who disrespect
our communities, to train police to be more professional and more aware of cultural differ-
ences in our communities, and to help build bridges between police on the streets and our
communities.
The NAACP continues to lead the fight against social injustices in Jacksonville. Lack of
jobs and opportunity are the real reasons behind the high crime rate. But we cannot condone
blacks committing crimes against other blacks because of this. Residents of our communi-
ties deserve a safe place to live, and we have some responsibility to help create that environ-
ment.
Isaiah Rumlin, President, Jacksonville Branch NAACP

Commentary from Dr. Juan Gray, Chairman, SCLC, Jacksonville
LACK OF TRUST IS THE REAL ISSUE CONCERNING SNITCHING
The term snitching is used in our community to suggest that someone provide informa-
tion to the Police about a crime that was witnessed. This information might be crucial to
solve a crime or murder. It is important that the Police have information so they can
investigate, solve and get to the bottom line of who committed these criminal actions
against citizens in the community.
Historically, there is an issue of the lack of trust in America and specifically in
Jacksonville concerning the Police. The Police are supposed to protect us but far too
often, they have been involved in the contrary. Racial Profiling have nothing to do with
protection. Why are we the largest population of people in jail in this town? While at
the same time, we are in the minority as a people in this town. As stated in an earlier arti-
cle, "it was the racist Police in the 1960's who beat Black citizens for lawful
(Unconstitutional and Jim Crow) reasons. Today, local Police Officers kill hundreds of
our citizens in the line of duty and not one of their actions has been judged unjustified".
The local Police must somehow gain the trust of our community in this city. Once we
trust them, if that's possible, then we'll talk to them. What actions have the Police taken
to foster trust in our community? SCLC and the Jacksonville Leadership Coalition have
reached out to the Sheriff and the Mayor's Office with suggestions to address the mur-
der situation in our city. We have also hand carried a letter to the Sheriff's Office
requesting a meeting to discuss" Unprofessional Behavior" involving Police Officers. We
have yet to get a response from the Sheriff and Mayor's Office.
The mission of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is "Reconciliation".
Open and free flowing dialogue is the only way reconciliation can take place in
Jacksonville. We as a people know the past history of the Police and we want to be part-
ners in the justice system. It was Richard Pryor who said when it comes to punishment
in the legal system "it's just us". Twice last week the Times Union leadership was told
concerning their infamous cartoon, and again this message must be conveyed, SCLC is


an organization of reconciliation. Langston Hughes said "Not everything faced can
change but nothing can be changed until it is faced". The issue of trust concerning the
Police and the Mayor must be faced.
We need a serious dialogue so we can face the issues that create crime, murder, poor
education and under employment. Spinning the snitch issue will not take the
Community's attention off the Mayor's financial mismanagement by giving half million
dollars to a close friend and not providing for the poor with the HUD Section 3 dollars.
50,000 households have not been lifted out of poverty my mayor. be willing partners in
the solution to the sociological issues which confront our city and affect'us directly. We
are ready and willing to address the trust issues with the Police, Mayor and other
Agencies in this community. We are waiting for the Mayor and Sheriff to respond to our
request for a meaningful and serious dialogue to address the issues of crime, murder,
poor education andinder employment. &

"Jena Six" Picking Up Student Support


by Vanessa Rozier
Black College Wire

A year ago, Mychal
Bell was known in Jena,
La., simply as a 16-year-
old sophomore at Jena
High School and a win-
ning starter on its foot-
ball team. Today he
stands convicted of
aggravated second-
degree battery and faces
up to 22 years in prison.
He is nationally
known as one of the
young men called the
Jena Six.
A rally is scheduled
in Jena on Sept. 20 in
conjunction with univer-
sities and individuals
who wish to support the
six.
According to
accounts of the develop-


ments, their case began
on Aug. 31, 2006, when
a black student in Jena
asked permission to sit
underneath what was
understood to be the
"white" tree at school -
and he did. The next day,
three nooses were found
hanging from the tree.
Three white students
were held responsible
and the principal recom-
mended that they be
expelled. The school
board and superinten-
dent, however, decided
that an in-school suspen-
sion would suffice.
Outraged, black stu-
dents organized a protest
and, again, sat under-
neath the "white" tree.
Two incidents took place
the next November
weekend.


On the Friday night,
Robert Bailey, one of the
six, was punched and
kicked at a party attend-
ed by mostly white stu-
dents. Then. Saturday. a
confrontation took place
between a group of black
students and one of the
white students involved
in Friday's fight.
Once back at school,
Justin Barker. a white
student, teased Bailey
about getting beaten
Friday night and used
racial slurs to do so. One
student punched Barker
in the back of the head
and others kicked him
while he was down,
leaving him uncon-
scious. An ambulance
arrived to pick Barker
up, but he was never
officially hospitalized
and, later that night,
went to a school func-
tion.
Six black students
were arrested over the
Dec. 4 school fight and
their bonds were set. The
highest reached
$138,000.
Bell and the other
five were charged with
attempted second-degree
murder and conspiracy
in the fight with Justin


Barker. On Sept. 4.
charges for Carwin
Jones and Theo Shaw
were reduced to aggra-
vated-second degree bat-
tery, the Associated
Press reported, citing a
media report.
In July, Bell became
the first to stand trial.
After being represented
by a public defender
who did not call witness-
es in Bell's defense, an
all-white jury convicted
him of aggravated bat-
tery and conspiracy
charges after two days of
deliberation. On Aug.
24, Bell was denied a
reduction in the $90,000
bail after prosecutors
disclosed four previous
brushes with the law.
On July 31, as many
as 300 supporters rallied
in Jena in support of Bell
and all of the defendants.
Victoria Kirby, a jun-
ior speech communica-
tion major at Howard
and a member of the
Save the Jena Six
Planning Committee,
said the Jena Six issue
cannot be ignored. The
group was planning a
Sept. 5 rally in support
of the accused at
Howard's Rankin


Memorial Chapel.
"It's crucial for us to
be involved," Kirby said
of the Howard commu-
nity. "What we do
affects what happens in
the black community."
Chigozie Onyema is
a part of the planning
team as well. The group
is %working to raise
money for and aware-
ness of the case. "It
would behoove students
at a historically black
university to show soli-
darity with any case that
calls into question the
blindfold that the court is
supposed to wear," he
said. Onyema is a senior
African American stud-
ies major and the presi-
dent of the Howard
chapter of Amnesty
International.
"Historically, there
has been a separate crim-
inal justice system for
black and white citi-
zens," he said. He then
referred to the Rev. Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.'s
Letter from a
Birmingham Jail, saying
that it taught us that "an
injustice anywhere is a
threat to justice every-
where."

Historically Black Colleges and Universities


When picking out a
college, you need to
choose the institution
that's best for you. Size,
location and price are
important. But for many
black students graduat-
ing from high school
today, an even greater
consideration is whether
or not to attend a histori-
cally black college or
university. Check out the
pros and cons to decide
if one of these schools is
right for you.

A Record of
Achievement
Historically black
colleges and universities
(HBCUs) are institutions
established before 1964
whose main mission is
the education of black


By Chris Diehl

You could use a few
extra dollars but you'd like
to avoid punching a clock
or calling home. Maybe
one of these unique tactics
can be a source of income
for you.
Surveys and
Experiments. Students
and professors doing
research in the psychology
or behavioral studies
department sometimes
need participants for sur-
veys and experiments and
are willing to pay.
Amounts vary widely by


Americans. Presently,
about 930,000 students
are enrolled in the 98
HBCUs across the coun-
try.
HBCUs have made a
nade for themselves with
the achievements of their
impressive alumni.
Black leaders like
Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Booker T. Washington
and W.E.B. Dubois all
attended HCBUs. In the
United States, 35 percent
of black lawyers, 50 per-
cent of black engineers
and 65 percent of black
physicians graduated
from HBCUs. Eighteen
percent of black college
students are enrolled at
HBCUs, which award 23
percent of the bachelor's
degrees earned by
African-Americans.

Support and


school, but generally you
can expect to collect
between $5 and $30.
Check with your school's
psychology or behavioral
studies departments for
opportunities. Friends in
those majors may also
know about openings not
publicized.
Focus Groups. Find
local market research com-
panies and ask to register
as a possible focus group
participant. You could
make a few dollars in
exchange for offering your
opinion about a new. ad


Personalized Attention
Graduates of
HBCUs like Nikki
Hughes, an alumnus of
Knoxville College, think
this success comes from
the supportive commu-
nity within black
schools. "I received one-
on-one attention," said
Hughes, "It was a family
atmosphere, where peo-
ple wanted to know how
you were doing."
According to Mary
Hollens, coordinator of
off-campus programs for
Lewis College of
Business in Michigan, as
soon as students walk
through the door of a
HBCU, there is the feel-
ing that they can suc-
ceed. "Historically black
colleges and universities
offer a supportive envi-
ronment to help students
achieve."
To fulfill this mis-
sion, HBCUs offer
smaller classes in which
students receive person-
alized attention from
professors. Professors
and administrators get to
know the students better
and serve as role models
from the African-
American community.
Both the administration
and the student popula-


campaign or sampling
food.
Play to Your
Strengths. Offer to edit
papers or provide tutoring
for a course you already
had success in. If you're a
tech whiz, offer to fix
buggy computers.
Musically inclined? Set up
shop on a busy street cor-
ner (check local laws first)
or in a coffee shop and pass
the hat.
Reffing. Check campus

tion of HBCUs present
an encouraging culture
and history-conscious
atmosphere.
Challenges Facing
HBCUs
HCBUs' commit-
ment to their mission
creates special chal-
lenges as well. One of
the biggest challenges
they face is finding the
funding for premier
resources. Because
HBCUs are committed
to helping students with
fewer financial
resources, they have to
provide more for stu-
dents with fewer tuition
dollars.
As a result, the
National Center for
Education Statistics
(NCES) reports that
public HBCUs spent
$15,100 per student in
2000, or about 12 per-
cent less than the nation-
al average for public col-
leges and universities.
Private HBCUs spent
about 14 percent less per
student than all private
colleges and universi-
ties.
These financial chal-
lenges make it hard for
HBCUs to keep up with
other schools in technol-
ogy, facilities and finan-


much time and may have
the added benefit of a good
workout.
Plasma Donation.
Consult your physician
first; if you're cleared you
might be paid $15 to $30
(or more) for each dona-
tion. Generally, you are
allowed to donate up to
two or three times per
week. BloodBanker.com
lists places in the U.S.
where you can donate.
Sell Some Stuff. The
Web is a great place to sell
things. Craigslist, eBay
and Amazon are just a few


cial aid. It has also made
it difficult for HBCUs to
offer competitive
salaries to their profes-
sors. The NCES reports
that the faculty at
HBCUs earn around 80
percent of the national
average.

An Abiding Belief
in the Mission
Despite these chal-
lenges, students and pro-
fessors are continually
attracted to HBCUs
because they believe in
their mission. Private
companies and groups
across the nation are also
believers; organizations
like the Wal-Mart
Foundation, Lilly
Endowment and Giant
Food Corporation offer
financial support to
HBCUs. Some state
governments have also
provided financial assis-
tance.
Historically black
colleges and universities
offer a unique approach
to education by creating
an environment of sup-
port, tradition and cul-
ture. Visit an HBCU on
your college tour of col-
leges to see if they offer
the right match for you.

As it prepares to
inaugurate its sixth year,
the annual Honda Battle
of the Bands program
will cast a well earned
national spotlight on the
historic spirit, pageantry
and showmanship of
black college marching
bands. Whatever part of
it fans come to see, from
their own schools and
colors on parade, to pre-
cision marching, chart-
topping music, riveting
choreography or just the
musicianship, surprises
are always in order for
people of all ages as the
"the Super Bowl for
Black College Marching
Bands" returns. .
S"Beyond merely
entertaining students,
administrators, fans and
alumni of these great
institutions, HBCU
marching bands nurture
the future leaders in edu-
cation, arts, music, poli-
tics and so much more,"


said Marc Burt, manag-
er, Communications for
American Honda.
"Considering all that
they give to us, Honda is
proud to help showcase
the hard work of these
musicians as the founder
and principal sponsor of
the Honda Battle of the
Bands program."
For 2007-08, HBOB
will feature 42 partici-
pating HBCU Marching
Bands. American Honda
Motor Co., Inc. will
again award a total of
$142,000 in grants to the
participating marching
bands, including $1,000
to each for their halftime
performances at selected
football games through-
out the fall season.
The Honda Battle of
the Bands is comprised
of two primary compo-
nents: the Celebration
Tour and the Invitational
Showcase.
As part of. the 2007-


08 Celebration Tour,
which runs through mid-
November, fans have the
opportunity to get inter-
active by logging on to
the Honda Battle of the
Bands Web site to partic-
ipate in the online opin-
ion survey, nominating
their favorite HBCU
marching band. By the
conclusion of the.
Celebration Tour, the 10
bands that demonstrate
the best showmanship,
musicianship and fan
interaction will be invit-
ed to perform in the
Invitational Showcase
on January 26, 2008, at
the Georgia Dome in
Atlanta.
The 10 schools
selected will each
receive an additional
$10,000 to benefit their
respective music pro-
grams and scholarship
funds. Beginning with
the 2008 Invitational
Showcase, HBOB has


adopted a new selection
process based upon
feedback received from
the HBCU band direc-
tors. While HBOB will
still utilize the on-line
opinion poll and college
president selections,
band directors will have
increased input based
upon a two-fold objec-
tive:
1. To allow the best
performing bands in
each conference, regard-
less of size or popularity,
an opportunity to partici-
pate in the showcase.
2. To improve the
selection process by
*focusing on experts (fel-
low conference band
directors) who will have
increased influence on
the selection of partici-
pants.

on W'ORITY STUDENTS OUTPACE PEERS IN FLORIDA, NATION


Jacksonville, Fla. -
African American and
Hispanic students in Duval
County Public Schools
(DCPS) outperformed their
peers in Florida and nation-
wide on SAT examinations
in 2006-07, according to
data highlights released
this week by the Florida
Partnership For Minority
and Underrepresented
Students.
The independent
analysis of scores on the
national college entrance
exam that is administered
by the College Board
reported:
*While a 10 percent
increase in the number of
African American DCPS
students taking the SAT
paralleled the Florida and
national rise, Duval's
African American students
outperformed their State of
Florida counterparts on
three SAT subsections.
*Duval's African
American students also
outperformed their peers
nationwide on reading,
mathematics and writing
subsections of the SAT.
*Similarly, there was a


23.8 percent increase in the
number of Hispanic stu-
dents in Duval County tak-
ing the SAT and they, too,
outperformed their State of
Florida counterparts on
three SAT subsections.
*Hispanic students in
DCPS also outscored their
peers nationwide.
Superintendent Dr.
Joseph Wise praised stu-
dents and teachers for the
boost in SAT scores after
only one full year of imple-
mentation of intensive ini-
tiatives to accelerate stu-
dent achievement. "We still
have a long way to go to
get achievement levels
where we need them to be
for all our kids, but this
progress is a great boost for
us," Dr. Wise said in a mes-
sage to Duval County edu-
cators.
The 2006-07 school
year was the first of a
Florida Department of
Education-College Board
partnership in Duval
.County schools that focus-
es on increased academic
rigor at designated
EXCELerator schools.
Enrollment in tougher


Advanced Placement (AP)
classes swelled districtwide
and three out of four stu-
dents in those classes
received a grade of A, B or
C for high-school credit. In
2007, 1,209 more DCPS
AP exam-takers qualified
for college-level credit.
The Florida
Partnership summary this
week reported that:
*Mean Critical
Reading scores for Duval's
African American students
is 11 points higher, mean
Mathematics is 4 points
higher, and mean Writing is
8 points higher on the SAT
than African American stu-
dents in public schools
throughout the State of
Florida.
*Mean Critical
Reading scores for Duval's
African American students
is 16 points higher, mean
Mathematics is 5 points
higher, and mean Writing is
6 points higher than
African American students
in public schools nation-
wide.
*Mean Critical
Reading scores for Duval's
Hispanic students is 19


points higher, mean
Mathematics is 24 points
higher, and mean Writing is
20 points higher than
Hispanic students in public
schools throughout Florida.
*Mean Critical
Reading scores for Duval's
Hispanic students is 42
points higher, mean
Mathematics is 36 points
higher, and mean Writing is
33 points higher than
Hispanic students in public
schools nationwide.
Superintendent Wise
believes that increased
enrollment in rigorous
Advanced Placement
courses is important to cre-
ating a college-going cul-
ture among DCPS students
but also a vitally important
social correction. He
believes that all students -
regardless of their race,
economic status or religion
- should be propelled for-
ward in academic achieve-
ment through enrollment in
the more challenging
courses. The current initia-
tives are designed to level
the playing field and raise
academic expectations of
all students at all high


schools while mirroring the
Duval County School
Board's Core Beliefs and
Commitments.
The Florida
Partnership For Minority
and Underrepresented
Students was created in
2004 by the Florida legisla-
ture. The cooperative
between the state
Department of Education
and the College Board is an
initiative based on the
belief that all students can
learn and achieve high lev-
els of academic success.
Similar to programs in
Duval County, the
Partnership's education
reforms are based on high
standards and rigorous,
supportive instruction that
have resulted in dramatic
improvements, especially
for underrepresented stu-
dents.
DCPS is believed to be
the nation's 19th largest
public school district with
an estimated 125,000 stu-
dents and 8,000 teachers.
Dr. Wise became DCPS
superintendent in 2005.


(NAPSI)- With all
the safety advances of
today's vehicles, it's sur-
prising but true that gov-
ernment officials from
the National Highway
Traffic Safety
Administration
(NHTSA) and
Department of
Transportation (DOT)
are worried about the
security of today's young
passengers. Government
studies show that despite
crumple zones, air bags
and electronic stability
control, a wide majority
of kids ages 4 to 8 are
still riding unsafe. That's
because many children
in this age range aren't
properly restrained.
According to
NHTSA, less 'than 20


percent of children who
should be in booster
seats actually are, leav-
ing thousands of chil-
dren without adequate
protection. Recently,
former U.S.
Transportation Secretary
Norman Y. Mineta
called booster seat usage
rates a "failure."
"How many times
have you seen a child
put their shoulder belt
under their arm because
it's resting uncomfort-
ably across their neck?
They do it because the
belt doesn't properly fit
their small frame," said
Dr. Anne Snowdon,
Ph.D., University of
Windsor professor and
health, safety and injury
prevention expert. "By


raising children 4 inches
or so, booster seats
ensure that seat belts
cross children's lap and
shoulders rather than
their neck and abdomen
where it could cause
injuries."
So why are so many
children riding without
booster seats? A recent
nationwide survey asked
nearly 500 parents with
children ages 4 to 8
about the challenges to
using booster seats. The
parents said their top
three concerns are "the
seat is not secured to the
vehicle," the seat is "dif-
ficult to install/remove"
and their "child finds the
seat uncomfortable."
Fortunately, one
booster seat has features


that address these major
concerns, making boost-
er seats easier for par-
ents to use. Called olli
and made by clek, it won
a Juvenile Products
Manufacturers
Association Innovation
Award and an iParenting
Media Award.
With an integrated
rigid LATCH system,
the booster seats secure-
ly fasten to the vehicle's
LATCH anchorage sys-
tem and install and
release in less than 10
seconds, providing a
solution to the top two
challenges cited by par-
ents. An additional layer
of padding eliminates
numb-bum and address-
es parents' concerns
regarding child comfort.
"We believe we can
attack the lack of booster


seat usage through new
seating products that
parents and kids are
more inclined to use,"
said Dr. Snowdon. "For
instance, clek looks and
feels like a real seat,
offering improved com-
fort and ergonomic
advantages that reduce
pressure on the sciatic
nerve and keep a child's
legs and feet from going
numb on longer car.

BANDS continued from B5
This year, the selection process will be com- RU
prised of two categories. The first represents the Jo
same format that HBOB has followed since the pro-
gram's inception with one exception: Only one band
from each HBCU athletic conference and independ-
ent program will be selected for a total of five bands. N
HBOB will still count the fan opinion poll (1/3),
the band directors (1/3) and the college presidents
(1/3) as the selection criteria for the category.
The second category will represent selection by the fellow conference band
directors only. Each band director allowed to vote from the conference they rep-
resent. This category will select the remaining five bands for each year.
Additionally, when a conference or independent band is selected in this catego-
ry, they will not be eligible for the category the following year. They will, how-
ever, always be eligible in category one.
American Honda remains committed to providing the best, fairest platform
to showcase HBCU marching band programs. This year's selection process will
terminate on Friday, November 2nd, 2007, at midnight (EST). The 10 univer-
sities selected for participation in the 2007 Honda Battle of the Bands
Invitational Showcase will be announced on Monday, November 12th. As
always, band directors and college presidents are not permitted to select their
own schools.
Honda's long-term commitment to the HBCUs was first made more than 18
years ago when it established the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge, a program
designed to showcase the academic gifts and prowess of HBCU students. For

ing HBCUs or to enter your nominee for the Invitational Showcase, visit

JTA Board Approves Selected Fare Adjustments


JACKSONVILLE -
After hearing public con-
cerns on the impact of
proposed transit fare
increases to area senior
citizens, the Jacksonville
Transportation Authority
Board of Directors today
deferred its vote on the
senior and disabled fare
portion of the adjust-
ments. At four JTA-spon-
sored public hearings held
earlier this month, seniors
were vocal about how any
increase would burden
them financially. Those
comments, along with a
last minute plea from
Congresswoman Corrine
Brown, gave the board
reason to reconsider any


action on the increases.
"We (JTA) will take
this matter seriously," said
Chairman Cleve Warren.
"We will review all the
data and find the best pos-
sible solution with the
least impact to those most
vulnerable of our citi-
zens."
JTA Executive
Director/CEO Michael J.
Blaylock said the
Authority is committed to
providing the best possi-
ble service for a fair and
equitable price.
Today's action deleted
any fare increases for sen-
iors and disabled patrons.
The matter will be
reviewed and readdressed
next year.


The fare adjustments
approved today are as fol-
lows:


Full cash fare 75
cents to $1
Express fares $1.35
to $1.50
Youth ticket book
$5.30/10 to $6.50/10
Regular ticket book
$7/10 to $9/10
40 ticket book $28 to
$36
Adult weekly pass
$10 to $12

There will be no
change in the monthly
pass, still just $40.
Regional monthly, student
and universal pass prices
will not change. Ride
SRequest fares and Air JTA
will also not change. All
transfers will be discon-
tinued. Youth less than 42
inches and seniors 60 and
older will still ride for
free.


distributed with parking
privileges will increase
incrementally as well. In
addition, beginning
October 1, a late payment
fee of $5-will be assessed
for any rental payments
made after the fifth day of
that month.
The fare adjustments
were the result of rising
costs, especially fuel..
With the adjustments, JTA
still has one of the lowest
fare structures in the state.
- All approved adjust-
ments will go into effect
October 1, 2007.


Skyway fares will
increase from 35 cents to
50 cents. A new monthly
pass for the Skyway only
will be introduced for
only $20 allowing unlim-
ited use of the Skyway.
Reduced fare will remain
10 cents. Monthly passes

INDUSTRIES TO STOP USE OF RACIST,
SEXIST LANGUAGE, CONCEPTS & IMAGES.

conference announcing and outlining details of
the NAACP's 'STOP' Campaign.
The STOP Campaign is an initiative of the
NAACP Youth & College Division that seeks to
"stop" the demeaning images of African
Americans in the media, particularly with respect
to the portrayal of African American women.
Due to the overwhelming number of racially
disrespectful incidents that continually occur, the
STOP Campaign is not only needed, but urgently
so.
The NAACP recognizes that when it comes to
forming ideas and establishing norms, nothing is
more influential than the images and concepts
delivered into our lives on a daily basis by radio,
TV, film and the Internet. The NAACP equally
recognizes the need for balance within the
African American community in regards to what
music, film, and media we deem acceptable.
Those that are given access to the public through
mainstream media must be put on notice that they
have everything to lose by spewing racist ideas
and rants. When required, the Association direct-
ly 'confronts racism, the use of defamatory lan-
guage and racist actions.

MY DAY

'Can You Hear Me Now?'
Ester Davis
ReligionAndSpirituality.com .
It amazes me how magnificently God made the human "
body. I recently discovered that my body was simply min- .
eral-deficient. My daily vitamin was not sufficient. I was
aot having cardiac failure. I was not having a stroke or a '
panic attack. Once I added essential doses of copper, .
chromium magnesium and potassium, I was good to go. My bold fatigue was prac-
ically. erased with zinc. Now, talking to people, I am almost shocked about their .
interpretationn of minerals and their vital activity in the body. Even people who are I'-"
so called "health people" are lacking in their definition of minerals in the body.
I now equate the importance of minerals in the body to the telephone system. ..'. ...
Let's analyze a telephone call. You want to place a call to a friend in another state. ,
So, the first thing you do is place the call. The "call" is translated in split seconds to
electricall or wireless impulses. From there; the "call" is sent to communicate some- f tf
where in a cyberspace station, figuring out the fastest and best way to transit the
lumbers to your connecting destination. Because the connection takes seconds, your
brain never entertains the fact that so many things could go wrong, i.e., bad weath-
:r, power supply, switchboard, wrong numbers, etc. At the point of destination, the
'call" is converted to sound and the conversation starts.
For the most part, the "call" is audible, free of static and totally taken for grant-
:d. If excessive static is encountered, the immediate reaction is "Can you hear me
tow?" and the reactive response is solved with another location or a call back. And '
111 is well. The entire process happens in seconds and without forethought. In our "
ninds, the telephone system, because of its 100-year-old existence in our world, :.,'
combinedd with the tremendous enhancement and conveniences it affords, is infalli-
.1 ".....11,,1- -. .. .. I -. Ii '.


UlD, incapaOlte o error anu reliable.
Now, put your imagination on play. And for the sake of this conversation, remove
the "chain off your brain" and let's look at all the things that could go wrong. The
transmission of your "call" to another state is glitched with garbage. Even calling
back again and again only yields an abandoned call. Cannot hear anything. Now,
frustration starts to set in and all is not well. At one station the "call" runs into bad
weather. The "call" becomes part of a party line, and you don't understand the
dialect. At another station the power supply is not running at optimum levels and the
switchboard is closed.
Minerals are engaged in nearly every physical contraction in the body. Without
minerals you could not drink, eat or breathe. Minerals function as the necessary
transmission of impulses that flow from the brain to the muscles. Using the nervous
system as the transmission lines, they carry messages to and from the brain. More
simply said, minerals are the switches that propel the "calls" to and from without dis-
ruption, interruption or disturbances.
Can you hear me now?

War Veterans' Experiences are needed for
the "Veteran's History Project"
The Jacksonville Branch of the Association for the Study of African American Life
and History is soliciting memoirs from African American veterans of all branches of the
service, war industry workers, USO and medical volunteers whose work supported our
Armed forces. The United States Congress created the Veteran's History Project in 2000

generations.
Our chapter's intent is to identify as many veterans and civilian workers from World
War I through current conflicts. We will interview and record your stories with an audio
or video recorder and use your photographs, letters, diaries, maps and help write your
memoirs if assistance is needed. These will make it possible to learn about the past
through the first hand of accounts of men and women who lived through extraordinary
times. We will need your name, telephone number and the war in which you participat-
ed. Please call 350-1623 to leave this information, and a member of our organization will
call you to set up an appointment. ,
The interview and other documents will be sent to the Veteran's History Project at
the Library of Congress and preserved according to professional standards. Your
Biographical Data Form will be in the project's National Registry of Service on the web-
site. Your materials will be available to researchers, educators, family members and oth-
ers in the Library of Congress.
Please call for an appointment. We need your wartime experience. When you par-
ticipate, you are making history.

Meningitis Vaccine for'Kids 11 and Older
Durval County Department of Health

Jacksonville. FL Nearly 3,000 Americans contract meningitis each year, and approx-
imately 12% of those infected will die. It is a potentially deadly disease and young people
are at the highest risk of contracting it.
27-year-old Amy Purdy was 19 when she contracted meningitis. "I thought I had the
tflu.., a 24-hour flu. I had a fever of 101 and was not feeling too good and my body was
achy. I had the chills and suddenly I took a turn for the worse."
She spent three-months in the hospital and had to have both her legs amputated to save
her life. She's one of the lucky ones... she survived. "It's very deadly for those who con-
tract it and for those who survive it."
Evan Bozof was a junior in college and in good health when he was diagnosed with


the disease. His mom. Lynn Bozof sa.s. "He called one day with what he thought was a
virus. It turned out it w\as meningitis and unfortunately it took his life."
Neither Bozof nor Purdy had ever heard of a meningitis vaccine until it was too late.
The Center tor Disease Control and Prevention tCDC) now recommends all children
between the ages of 11 and 18 get inmmunized.
Dr. Jose Irazuzta is a pediatric critical care doctor at Wolfson Children's Hospital. He
says it's very important to get immnunized. "There's no advantage of not doing it. This vac-
cine prevents them from having a serious infection which has a high mortality rate. It's 90-
percent effective and it's very safe."
Meningitis hasn't slowed Purdy down. She's a competitive snowboarder and founded
Adaptive Action Sports which helps disabled athletes. "I've been able to turn a negative
into a positive and help others along the way."
She's also helping to raise awareness about the meningitis vaccine.
A recent survey found while e most parents heard of meningitis, nearly half are not
aware of a vaccine to prevent it.

lar-season games. But, now that Leftwich
has been cut, Garrard is no longer the fill-in. He has been given the title of
the quarterback. He now has a chance to keep the job long term if he leads
the team to the playoffs this season.
This is going to be a very interesting year for the Jacksonville Jaguars and
Coach Del Rio. It is said that Del Rio realizes that he must have a win this
season. Well, starting Sunday, we'll get a good look at what the Jaguars are
made of. "I'm ready for some football," how about you?

Jaguars Trim Roster To 53; Trade Pearman
The Jacksonville Jaguars today released 19 players including quarter-
back Byron Leftwich, traded RB Alvin Pearman, and placed two players -
DE James Wyche (groin) and WR Mike Walker (knee) on injured reserve.
The other veterans included in today's cuts were G Dan Connolly, S Jamaal
Fudge, LB Nick Greisen, DT Seth Payne, WR Charles Sharon, CB Bruce
Thornton and CB Dee Webb.
One of the Jaguars' 11 draft picks, safety Josh Gattis (fifth round), was
waived. Joining Gattis were ten first-year players: DT Joe Anoai, LB Kevis
Coley, DL Walter Curry, OT Ryan Gibbons, DE Tyler King, DB Jamar
Landrom, LB Roy Manning, G Pete McMahon, CB Rashod Moulton and TE
Isaac Smolko.
The Jaguars' roster now stands at 53 players. The team can sign eight
players to their practice squad after 12:00 noon Sunday. Of the 53 players,
34 were drafted by Jacksonville including 27 from 2003 through 2007. This
marked the first season under head coach Jack Del Rio that no undrafted
rookies made the initial 53-man roster.


K Jaguars Name David Garrard

Starting Quarterback

08/31/07 Jacksonville Jaguars head
coach Jack Del Rio today named David
Garrard the team's starting quarterback
and announced the team's intention to
trade or release quarterback Byron
Leftwich.
"We've gone through the offseason,
training camp and the preseason with
Byron as our starter, but after thorough
ongoing evaluation of the entire body of
work we have made the decision that
David gives us the best chance to win," Del Rio said. "We're naming David
as our starting quarterback. This is a strong team with a solid roster, and
we feel that David's performance and continuing improvement warrants
this decision to name him the starter. Byron has been a very important part
of this team, and this is a significant move to make. But it is a move that
we feel gives us the best chance of winning."
Garrard, 29, is in his sixth season with the Jaguars after being drafted
in the fourth round of the 2002 draft. He has started 15 of the Jaguars' last
22 games over the past two seasons. Garrard has posted a career passer
rating of 78.9 in completing 313 of 539 passes for 3,543 yards with 18
touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also has a 5.5-yard average per rush
and six touchdowns on 115 career rushing attempts, and is 10-8 as a
starter including nine wins and six losses over the past 15 games.
S"Every decision, whether significant or seemingly insignificant, is made
with winning in mind," said Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver. "There are
many very difficult decisions that have to be made, and this is certainly one
of the most difficult decisions we've faced. But once the decision is made
we move on together with conviction. Our goal is to put the best team on
the field in order to win, and that is what matters. I do want to thank Byron
and acknowledge all that he has done for this organization. He is a profes-
sional and he will do well wherever he goes."
"David has played very well throughout the offseason and he's had an
excellent preseason," added Jaguars VP/player personnel James Harris.
"He has shown improvement and he has earned the opportunity to start.
Byron has been a contributor to our team and has always given his best
effort, every day."
Leftwich was 24-20 as a starter, completing 789 of 1,344 passes for
9,042 yards with 51 touchdowns and 36 interceptions for a passer rating of
80.,5. Leftwich has been the starter for most of his four seasons in
Jacksonville.

Numbers Up One In The NFL
Number of Black College Players Up To 45 in 2007 Season
By M.E. Ford
The Florida Star
The number of Black
college players on NFL
opening day rosters
increased by only one this
year after teams made their
final cuts last week.
Five players drafted in
this year's NFL Draft and .-
two rookie free agents made
either their teams' 53-man
roster or their practice
squads. Houston rookie
wide receiver/kick returned
Jacoby Jones, a third round
pick out of Lane of the SIAC, made the biggest impression in the pre-season returning two
punts (80 and 91 yards) for TDs and catching eight passes for 105 yards and scoring twice
as a receiver. In a verylshort time, Jones has become the poster boy of the Texans, who enter
a new era under new coach Gary Kubiak and new starting quarterback Matt Schaub.
The other draftees Hampton linebacker Justin Durant (2nd round Jacksonville),
Alabama A&M linebacker Johnny Baldwin (5th round Detroit), North Carolina Central
defensive tackle Greg Peterson (5th round Tampa Bay) and Alabama State defensive back
Michael Coe (5th round Indianapolis) all made their squads along with former Arkansas-
Pine Bluff fullback Charles Ali (Cleveland) and Hampton running back Alonzo Coleman
(Dallas Practice Squad) as rookie free agents.
On the other end of the spectrum, New York Giants' veteran Michael Strahan, the Hall
of Fame bound defensive end out of Texas Southern, decided as training camp wrapped to
return for his 15th year in the league. He and former Alcorn State quarterback Steve McNair
of Baltimore, entering his 13th season, will be the black college products with the most
experience in the league.
Durant and Coleman helped Hampton tie Grambling State with the most black college
players in the league with five. Howard and North Carolina A&T will have four players in
the league this year.
Green Bay has five Black college players on its roster, which is the most in NFL.
Jacksonville, Kansas City, St. Louis and Houston have four.
With 20 players currently in the league, the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference retains a
slight lead over the Southwestern Athletic Conference's 18 in the NFL. The Southern
Intercollegiate Athletic Conference is next with six. There are no Central Intercollegiate
Athletic Association players and one from the non-HBCU conference schools currently in
the league. Defensive backs (16) far outnumber defensive linemen (7) and linebackers (7)


as the most prominent position played by HBCU alums.
Among the well-know veterans who didn't make opening day rosters are 12-year veter-
an defensive back Tyrone Poole out of Fort Valley State, who was signed and then cut by
Houston, nine-year veteran wide receiver Corey Bradford out of Jackson State, cut by
Washington and former Fort Valley State running back Derrick Wimbush, let go by
Jacksonville.

Did You Hear About?...


i" N ""''


ARIES
March 21st thru April 19th


It's kind of a slow week overall, but that does-
n't mean it won't be interesting! Take your time
on Monday and Tuesday, as you need to be
sure to get all the details exactly right before
moving on. Qrice that's behind you, gear up for
some good, if low-key, social adventures
before the weekend kicks in. Your natural
charm is on display, and people love it.
Saturday and .Sunday are best spent in quiet
pursuits, maybe puttering around the house or
reconnecting with old friends or family mem-
bers.


TAURUS
.' April 20th thru May 20th
Early in the week, your good energy endears
you to someone you really want to get closer
to, so make sure you're spending time with the
right people. It won't take much, though.
Wednesday through Friday fills you with a
need to shop that you haven't felt so strongly in
quite some time. If your finances can take it,
stock up -- otherwise, distract yourself with
online browsing or some other (more or less)
safe activity. Romance can blossom or deepen
this weekend if you decide you're with the
right person.


; GEMINI
"-. M ay 21st thru June 21st
Expect minor miscommunications, especially
with family members, early in the week. The
best you can do is be clear and upfront with
everyone -- subtle signals are almost certain to
be misread. That should all wash away pretty
quickly Wednesday morning, and the next sev-
eral days are full of great, brainy energy.
Apply it to work or school and watch old prob-
lems fade away to nothing. Your emotional
state consumes your attention this weekend,
and you may need to work on letting go of old
baggage.


% CANCER
June 22nd thru July 22nd
Something small catches your eye on Monday
or Tuesday and gets you thinking about friends
or family. It's a good time to repair relation-
ships that have been unraveling for a while.
Watch out for a rebound later in the week,
though, as unintended consequences pile up
and require extra attention. You can handle
them as long as you set aside the time. The
weekend brings good emotional energy, but
you may encounter opportunities that are too
good to be true. Be wary and trust your intu-
ition to guide you in the right direction.



S- LEO
j i July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Take a break early this week and let others
catch all the flack. You'd rather sit back and
watch someone else take an active part in the
events of the day. You certainly deserve it!
Your energy ramps up in a big way on
Wednesday, and you should have a big smile
on your face through Friday, thanks to nothing
in particular. Share the good times with those
you love and you'll all coast into the weekend
feeling fine. Make sure you've got one eye
open for those who don't have your best inter-
ests at heart on Saturday and Sunday -- your
trusting nature could land you in trouble other-
wise!

r VIRGO
Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
Your great energy helps you organize your life
to perfection on Monday and Tuesday -- yes,
even more so than before! You're on a roll, and
friends and coworkers are amazed at what you
cook up. Try a big display of romance or
friendship later in the week. Amaze someone
close and bring them even closer. It should be
much easier than you imagine to make a great
impression. You can be a terrific listener when
you put your mind to it, and this weekend
brings a perfect opportunity to help someone
who really needs you.


U


LIBRA
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd


The week begins with your sharp eye noticing
details that elude everyone else, making it a
good time for business deals, politicking and
finishing up negotiations of all kinds. Your
good energy flares up in a big way on
Wednesday, so take time out to enjoy life later
in the week. You may find that people are
more willing than usual to see things your way
and give you the latitude you need. The week-
end is the best time to get started on those big
changes you want to make in your life.



rf SCORPIO
4 Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
Your social life improves a bit on Monday and
Tuesday, even if that doesn't seem possible.
You may make a new friend or take an exist-
ing friendship to a new level. You spend more
time waiting than you may like later in the
week, but your patience is rewarded .in the
long run. Try to find positive ways to fill your
time. The weekend is perfect for romance -- or
for any endeavor that needs other people to
work out. Your personal energy is so intense
that most folks find you deeply fascinating
now.



SAGITTARIUS
Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
It's a thoughtful week for you for the most
part. Early on, you need to focus on small
details in work or home projects, as your
mindset is just about perfect for juggling them
and bringing them in line with each other. A
minor legal issue may pop up on Wednesday
or Thursday, and will require your full atten-
tion. But it should be resolved quickly and
painlessly. The weekend is a great time for
reflection on the past week's events -- you can
learn quite a bit that will come in handy later.


v CAPRICORN
Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
Your inquisitive mind is ready for new informa-
tion as you begin the week, so seek out a few new
sources and see what you can dredge up. You may
finally solve a problem that has been nagging you
for weeks! Your job or career path takes up more
time than usual from Wednesday through Friday,
and you should be ready to follow up with new
leads and new opportunities quickly. You're called
on to settle a dispute this weekend, and your
answer may cement your reputation as someone
who can maintain objectivity.


SAQUARIUS
-'~.~'" Jn 20th thru Feb 18th
Things aren't quite what they seem on Monday
and Tuesday, and you may want to look into
matters more closely before committing to any
particular course of action. Once you know
what you're dealing with, go for it! Your social
energy picks up in a big way midweek', and for
the next few days you find yourself meeting
new people at a prodigious rate -- especially
folks you might never have had contact with
under ordinary circumstances. Take a long,
slow weekend if you can, and try your best to
take it easy without pushing any one activity
too hard.


1 -/ PISCES
/ \ Feb 19th thru March 20th
Your friends and family need you as the week
begins, but it's almost certain that they're too
confused or proud to let you know. Ask or
observe until you see what needs to be done,
then take care of it. On Wednesday, your life
may feel a wee bit out of balance, but it should
only take a couple of days for you to figure out
how to realign all the elements and get rolling
again. You feel great this weekend, but may
not want to do much of anything. Follow your
instincts or let your friends make the call.

--Ig. -.


suspects have been submitting fraudulent pay
slips and obtaining pay. Mr. EJ advised that on
this date, he discovered that the suspects did
not go to the assigned work place. The author-
ized signatures on the slips had been signed by
another unknown person other than the correct
signer. The officer mirandized both suspects at
the scene. The suspect denied forging the sig-
nature on the slips, however, they did admit
that they did not report to the work site, nor had
they worked anywhere else. The total loss suf-
fered by the company was $336. The suspects
would have obtained another $112 on this date


if they hadn't been caught. The suspect were arrested and transported to the
PTDF.

STOP CRACKING THE DOORS An officer was dispatched to the 1200
block of Labelle St., in reference to a dispute. Upon his arrival, he met with Ms.
SC, the victim. She stated that the suspect, Mr. LS, has been harassing her in ref-
erence to a dispute over money. This time the suspect was beating on the front
door of the victim's residence. She cracked the door to tell him to go away and
the suspect forced his way into the apartment. She tried to keep him out, but he
was too big and strong for her. He took approximately five steps into the apart-
ment, balled his right hand into a fist and said, "I'll fu_king kill you btch." The
suspect then exited the residence. The
victim stated that she is in fear for her
life and believes that the suspect would
follow through with his threat. The offi-
cer spoke separately with the victim's
seven year old daughter and her account
of the incident matched that of the vic-
tim's. The witness was very distraught
and cried throughout the interview.
When the officer and backup located the
suspect in front of the apartment, they
asked the suspect if he had an argument
with anyone in the apartment complex tonight, and he said no. The officer asked
him if he threatened to kill anyone tonight, and he said no. The victim drove by
in the police car and positively identified the suspect. He was arrested and trs-
ported to the PTDF.

ANOTHER CASE OF STOLEN IDENTITY (SHE USED AN EMPLOY-
EE DISCOUNT TOO)- An officer.was dispatched to the 1000 block of Rio St.
Johns Dr., in reference to a grand theft. The officer received a phone call from
Mr. BW, son of the victim, who advised the following: he received a phone call
from Mr. JS, Loss prevention officer, at a local department store. He advised he
had video footage of a credit card purchase that an unknown suspect used with
the victim's credit card. Mr. BW also received a phone call from the store man-
ager at a pharmacy, who advised he had video footage from two other days
where an unknown suspect used the victim's credit card for a purchase. He said
the young woman also used an employee discount with her transaction. The
complainant also mentioned that his moth-
er's jewelry was stolen. Contact was made
with the home health care division who
employed the suspect, which gave her
access to the victim's home. The jewelry
was recovered at a nearby pawn shop. The
suspect was located at another home while
; working. She admitted to pawning the jew-
Selry and using the victim's credit card and
S'' .... '1 stated that she needed the money for med-
ication. The suspect was arrested and tak-
.. .-" ing to Pre-Trial Detention Center.

MAN! I MEAN BOY! An officer was dis-
patched to the 1400 block of W. Union St. in
regards to someone shooting outside of a res-
idence. It was actually a fight between juve-
niles. The officer met with victim number one
Ms. T who stated she was in her bedroom at
the back of the residence when she heard
shots, arguing and cursing in her front yard.
She ran to the front door and saw unknown
black juvenile males 'attempting to fight a
male known as S. She could not provide any
additional personal information for the sus-
pects, nor S. They were all gone when the
police arrived. As the juveniles fought with S,
he ran into Ms. T's residence. The suspects followed S into the residence with-
out Ms. T's permission. She stated that she attempted to force the door closed to
keep them out, but the suspects then pushed her and entered the house. Once
inside, the suspects fought S inside. Ms. T told them that she called 911 and the
suspects then scattered and were later seen leaving the area in an unknown newer
Dodge Ram truck. The suspects drove east and out of her sight. Ms. T stated that
S often visits one of the kids that live at her residence. Despite the fact that she
heard multiple gunshots, there were no one shot or damages to the residence.

TO WORK OR NOT TO WORK An officer was dispatched to the 6200
block of Powers Ave. in reference to a forgery. Another officer was already at the
scene who had two suspects in custody and in the backseat of his marked unit.
The officer stated that the complainant, Mr. EJ, employee, advised that the two

Mikko Marks: Gorgeous Black Country Star Rising!


By Rych McCain,
feedbackrych@
sbcglobal.net
Photos courtesy Mirrome
Records

When one thinks of
country music, they rarely
picture a black person as the
artist even though country
music has it origins in the
deep south among blacks
and whites picked up on it
as- a form of expression.
Mirrome Records recording
artist Mikko Marks is black
and a remarkably gifted
song -writer/guitarist/singer.
Just recently out of the gate
recording wise, Marks is
already making history and
establishing a trailblazing
path that will prove hard to
follow as it opens doors for
other artists of color who
are pursuing the field of
country music.
In 2006, Marks was
named "Best New Country
-Artist" by New Music
Weekly magazine based in
Nashville, Tennessee. That
same year saw her capture
"Female Vocalist of the
Year" by Indie World
Country Record Report
based in Nashville as well.
Marks' debut album
"Freeway Bound" won
"Country Album of the
Year" at The Independent
Music Awards where coun-
try superstars Wynonna
Judd and Patty Loveless
were among the panel of
judges. Marks sung the
National Anthem at a recent
San Francisco 49ers game
and is currently on tour with
the Bill Picket Invitational
Rodeo. Her new'album "It
Feels Good" is out with the
single "The Son My Father
Never Had," and is already
making noise on the charts.
So how did Marks get
into doing country music?
She explains "I'm from
Michigan but my whole
family migrated from
Mississippi for the automo-


tive industry jobs. There was a
trail off of country music, blues
and things of that nature that
they brought along with them.
So I was exposed to Kenny
Rogers, Patsy Cline, Loretta
Lynn, not in a major way but
they were accents in the house-
hold as well as R&B, Marvin
Gaye, Earth Wind & Fire. I
mean music ran the gambit in
my house. You were subject to
find a little Rock 'n Roll. I mean
I didn't gravitate toward country
at a young age. It didn't happen
until I went to Grambling State
University (where she graduated
with a degree in Political
Science), which is smack dab in
the country (North Central
Louisiana), and I started tuning
into different radio stations
because I'm a lover of music. So
I just started to really get
attached to the story telling and I
started playing guitar and writ-
ing my own songs. People were
saying 'that sounds country' and
I said why not do what is natu-
rally coming out of me because I
didn't intentionally try to figure
to do country, it was just coming
out of my veins."
Marks make no apologies for
any path that she has chosen in
life and emphatically states,
"I've always been a rare bird.
Anyone you talk to growing up,
they always said I was a little
different. I was eclectic, I loved
all kinds of music, and I loved to
do all kinds of different things.
I'm subject to be on a soccer
field. I'm subject to be anywhere
in anything, not just because the
color of my skin. I just venture
out and I do all kinds of things
that wouldn't naturally put me in
the category. I sang operatic
music growing up. I sung at
Carnegie Hall at the age of 15. I
was one chosen from all 50
States from my madrigal choir in
'high school to go sing opera
music."
One thing you can bet on for
sure is Marks' style of dress on
stage. She is emphatic and says,
"I'm a silver queen nothing
but silver. I love turquoise. I love


- Ir-' 1, :A


--- -i --w I
all of the natural stones, earth tones, but I
gotta have my trusted cowgirl hat. That cow-
girl hat goes everywhere with me. It's like
we're doing this together and I have to have
my very old boots that are just raggedy and
Rugged. Those boots can tell a story. So
when I'm- in my boots, my silver, my jeans
and my cowgirl hat, I'm ready to go!"

MUSIC
The Care Bears On Fire (a
young teen rock trio); will drop
their new album "I Stole Your
Animal," on 10-2-07. You can
check out their video premier of
"Everybody Else," in the "Cool
New Videos" section at
www.myspace.com. Los
Angeles will be on fire this
weekend with the West Coast's
first HBCH classic; The 2007
Angel City Classic! It is the pre-
miere sports, dance and music
event which will take place at
the historic Los Angeles
Memorial Coliseum. The card
will feature a step show show-
down, battle of the bands and
will be capped off with a face off
football game between North
Carolina A& T State University
and Prairie View A&M.
THEATER
Los Angeles' premiere black
theater company, The Unity
Players Ensemble, had a
blowout 10-year anniversary
bash celebration at Miyagi's on
the famed Sunset Strip in
Hollywood.
MOVIES
THE KINGDOM stars


Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper,
Jennifer Garner, Jason
Bateman, Jeremy Piven,
Danny Huston and Richard
Jenkins. It was written by
Matthew Michael Carnahan
and directed by Peter Berg.
Produced by Michael Mann
and Scott Stuber.
This movie is about suicide
bombers who blow up an
American housing compound
for oil company employees in
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia while a
soft ball game with children is
in progress. 100 are killed
with another 200 injured. FBI
special agent Ronald Fleury
(Foxx) and his crack FBI
team i.e., explosives expert
Grant Sykes (Cooper),
Forensics examiner Janet
Mayes (Garner) and intelli-
gence analyst Adam Levitt
(Bateman), negotiate a secret
five-day trip into Saudi
Arabia to find those responsi-
ble. The film has good action
and suspense but the reality of
the sequences are badly
flawed and suspect. First, the
fantasy of a black man head-
ing a squad of white men (and
a white woman), into an
Eastern country to do battle
with brown men is unreal at

Wassup cont'd from D-4
most. Then there was
the scene where a major
freeway car crash takes
place and all three of
the American vehicles
crash. The one with
Fleury and his three
team mates even rolls
over two or three times
landing on it's roof and
all four including the
driver get out unharmed
and engage in a shoot
out after crew member
Leavitt is snatched from
the twisted up car kid-


Now bear in mind
that these folks have
just experienced a hor-
rific freeway car bang
up, yet they leave it to
chase the kidnappers to
a dangerous Riyadh
nationhood where our
accident victims
engage in an all out gun
battle. Other than that,
this flick will satisfy
your appetite for action
and violence.
