The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office sent out their SWAT team to East 23rd Street after receiving
a call regarding a situation that initiated early Sunday morning. According to the call, Charles
SPrindle, 31, abducted his ex-girlfriend at 'gunpoint from her home at the Lincoln Court Apartments
where he took her to the house on East 23rd. It is believed that she was beaten and sexually assault-
ed while at the East 23rd Street house. He also played Russian roulette with her prior to calling his
uncle to pick her up and take her home.
After receiving the call and during the time the SWAT team originally arrived at the house, they
spent time talking with Prindle who they believed was holed up in the house.. After four and a half
hours of negotiating with him, they decided they were not making progress and tear gas was
deployed. After which, they entered the house and discovered that Prindle was not there.
Unfortunately, they don't know how long he might have been gone and realized that his negotiat-

to Battle Cybercrimes
Creative Christians, Inc., a Christian based market-

monitoring software TELL-it-PC. The software
monitors anything that happens on a PC or the Internet
including websites visited, e-mails, downloads, key-
strokes, chat rooms, instant messages and much more.
The information is recorded, stored and emailed to
parents for review at their convenience.
Florida ranks fourth in the nation for child pornog-
raphy. Our children are targets, said Pastor Edward
Weston, the Youth Pastor at First Baptist Church,
Mandarin and founder and CEO of Creative

potential threats and could possibly prevent them."
'Date Rape' Drug in Popular Toy
It has been discovered the popu- .

contains a chemical that turns into a
powerful 'date rape' drug when
eaten. The toy consist of beads that Aqua Dots Toys,
made in China
can be arranged into designs and made in China
fused when sprayed with water. When the beads are eaten,
doctors say it metabolizes into gamma hydroxy butyrate and
can induce unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and
death. The effect can last up to about six hours from being
completely asleep to wide awake like nothing happened, the
reason it is called 'date rape' drug. The toy has been recalled.

Governors from Florida, Georgia and Alabama got

The governor said, "The only solution is rain, and the
only place we get that is from a higher power." The

A good education in
America is a major determi-
nant of what kind of life a
child will have when s/he
grows up. A bad education is
often a sentence to social and
economic death. Education
determines future income and
social status as well as a
child's range of future options
and quality of life. Sadly, too
many children in economi-
cally depressed minority
communities are stuck in fail-
ing schools, greatly increas-
ing their chances of ending
up in a prison cell.
A child's experiences in
the dawn of life establish the
foundation that will prepare
him or her to learn at school.
Children in America's poor-
est communities who lack
stable parenting, quality
child care and who receive
little stimulation in their
early years will be behind
when they start kindergarten.
When they enter first grade,
it's likely to be at a poorly
funded, overcrowded, under-
staffed and low-achieving
school. Inner-city schools
have the highest numbers of
teachers who are inexperi-
enced or don't have degrees
in the subjects they teach.
The number of African
American and Latino teach-
ers in public schools has
dropped dramatically over
the past three decades. In my
home state of South
Carolina, there are less than
200 Black male elementary
teachers. Consequently, too
many schools are likely to be
staffed by teachers and
administrators who have low
expectations for children
from marginalized families
whom they may label as
"dumb" or "bad."
Currently, 88 percent of
Black children and 85 per-
cent of Latino children in
fourth grade can't read at
grade level. This is when
minority children with poor
preschool preparation begin
to be sorted out.

an important actor in a
child's educational develop-
ment. A child's misbehavior
may be a reflection of an
unaddressed learning disabil-
ity or mental or emotional
disorder. Regrettably, too few
schools have the staff capa-
ble of recognizing the behav-
ior of a disturbed or disabled
child for what it is, and if
they do, are unable to provide
treatment. More often, these
children are seen as "disrup-
tive," and instead of offering
them counseling or psycho-
logical therapy, too many
educators dispense "zero tol-
erance" discipline usually
in the form of suspensions or
expulsions. These approach-
es have serious negative con-
sequences. Numerous studies
have demonstrated that stu-
dents who are suspended or
expelled are more likely than
their peers eventually to drop
out of school altogether.
Once children drop out,
or are pushed out of school,
the prison pipeline is only
one wrong move away. With
most churches and mosques
closed during the week and
too many community centers
boarded up, children with
few positive alternatives to
the streets often head for the
"comer," a different type of
educational institution that
teaches antisocial values like
violence and criminal behav-
ior, also glamorized on many

High school dropouts are
almost three times as likely

a few years ago would have

young as five and six are
being hauled down to police
stations in handcuffs. I think

Local Community Leaders Help Raise Money
For The Clara White Mission :
For well over a century the Clara White Mission
has helped Jacksonville's homeless restore their lives
through daily meals, a drop-in center, job training, the.
job placement program, housing and youth services.
These programs are the first steps for a second chance
and are insured with the support of the community.
Last week I was pleased to spend my birthday with a
Clara White Mission supporters at the "Pearls &
Cufflinks" Gala, and Silent Auction with the delicious
edibles catered by the Ashley Street Catering. The

the clinic, which was called a 'pill mill' was another form of drug dealing. The word
was out that you could receive up to three prescriptions from this clinic for a $140
cash visit where sometimes as many as 100 people would visit, per day. The doctor
would sometimes see the patients in groups, according to reports.
An average visitor would receive three prescriptions. Some were sick, most were
not. Many were drug addicts and some would sell the medications on the streets for
$5 to $15 per pill.
An investigation is continuing as at least two women said their daughters died of
accidental drug overdoses after visiting the clinic. The police are seeking help to
find others who may have died from drug overdose after visiting the S & P Medical
Even though Dr. Maurer was a licensed physician, the clinic did not accept insur-
ance. He had been practicing medicine since 1967 and did not actually write the pre-
scriptions but would have his physician assistant, Sandra Lindstrum, handle them.

I met a guy that I thought was really interested in me. I helped
him get employment at my company, helped with his bills and
paid child support for him. As soon as things started looking up
for him, our relationship changed. Things hit the fan when he got
a promotion and moved into another department. He is now
telling me that he's focused on improving his life instead of dating me. I heard that he's dat-
ing someone else in the company. What do I do?
Crying and Miserable On-Line Reader
You set yourself up by confusing help with being used and also giving up your money. You
never should mix business with pleasure because it's a guaranteed recipe for pain. He used
you to get ahead and you can see early on that he's leaving you behind. If you heard that he's
dating someone on the job, it's probably true. You can't do anything other than move on, be
glad that you got out early and pray for the new lady who will be his next sucker..
My nephew has left for college and has completely lost his mind. When he lived at home he
was quiet, mild mannered and well behaved. I hardly know him now that he's away from
home. He's still underage but he drinks, has tattoos and has become loud and rude. My sis-
ter simply turns her head and says he's an adult and I should mind my business. Is this nor-
mal when kids go off to college or should I intervene and get him back on track?
Loving Aunt (San Bernardino, CA)
You may be messing in business that doesn't belong to you. Your nephew is an adult and his
parents don't have any issues with his lifestyle and maybe you should do the same. If he's
still in college, getting good grades and staying out of trouble, then he's fine. You can't
impose your expectations on him but you can caution him about the drinking and any moral
issues. In other words, accept his newfound adult hood and be there with gentle guidance.
I have a platonic relationship with a male friend of four years but my fiance doesn't like it.
He has begun making hints that I've slept with my friend and accusing me of lying to him.
I've only known my fiance for two years and if I had to choose between the two men, I
would choose my friend. How can I convince my fiance that we're only friends and that
nothing is going on? This is becoming stressful because I love both men and want them in
my life. Help?
Sharon (San Antonio, TX)
Your future husband is jealous of your relationship with your male friend. It's your respon-
sibility to find balance as you seek to have both relationships. Invite your husband to be part
of the friendship so he can understand and be more open minded. Also be mindful of your
platonic friendship to make sure you're not giving your fiance reasons to complain. If things
don't improve after the air is clear, you fiance has issues you certainly need to explore.

We Must Not Be Shy In Demanding
Gov't Address Black Men's Plight
By: Tonyaa W\eathersbee, BAW
One of the first scenes that came to mind as I absorbed the
New York Times' latest heartbreaking report about the plight of
black men in America %\as one that I \i\messed more than a
decade ago m a Jacksonville. Florida courtroom.
I was there to cover a sentencing hearing, but as I waited
for my person to appear, Iwas exposed to a seemingly endless procession of young black men
in handcuffs and restraints. One of the things I noticed was that many of them, after having
their sentences meted out, managed a pimp stroll -- almost as a final, albeit pathetic, act of defi-
ance -- as they were escorted to the oblivion that awaited them beyond the back door of the
But one bailiff cautioned me to not buy into the bravado. Many of them, he said, cry like
babies once the door closes behind them. That saddened me -- and sobered me.
It told me that for most young black men, incarceration doesn't mark a milestone in them
earning some kind of street cred, as popular culture would have some of us believe, but rather
it represents the culmination of all the hopelessness that landed them there. It is the kind of
hopelessness that I'm sure underpins the scholarly findings reported by the Times. There are
the astronomical high school dropout rates fueling a 72 percent unemployment rate for young
black brothers. Then, there are the six in 10 black male high school dropouts who were like the
ones I saw years ago, who, by age 30, had spent time in prison.
But as horrid as those findings are, they do, at least, reaffirm one thing: To combat this
problem, we must demand a rebuilding of the education and economic infrastructure that has
been allowed to deteriorate in our inner cities for far too long. And we mustn't be shy about
asking government to do it.
I see some ofyou'rolling your eyes right about now. I hear you saying that black men need
to take responsibility for their own lives -- that it's a simple enough thing to avoid committing
crimes, to finish high school and to not make babies until they can care for them. I agree. That
should be simple. And all of us should encourage that kind of responsibility at every turn.
Doing that, however, becomes complex when so many of our young brothers live in com-
munities where the lack of legitimate job opportunities fuels underground economies that
obscure the options offered by the real world. It becomes complex when poorly-run and poor-
ly-funded schools teach mind-dulling values that alienate rather-than educate. And it becomes
exceedingly tough when a street culture that they can't envision themselves rising above caus-
es them to allow their manhood to be defined by swagger rather than substance.
Decades of government and corporate neglect -- through policies that, among other things,
led to the flight of jobs from the inner cities -- has contributed to that problem. Because of that,
I believe that fixing it can't be left solely to churches and charities -- or goodwill. Young black
men are an essential part of the human infrastructure of this country, and we need to not let
politicians off the hook for fixing that part of its infrastructure -- as they fix everything else.
Think about it.
When the massive S&L failures occurred in the late 1980s r- largely because of lax,
Reagan-era policies -- Congress had no problem cutting a $157 billion check to help bail them
out. We're still paying billions for that bailout now. But back then, I didn't hear any jawbon-
ing about personal responsibility. That personal responsibility thing only comes up, it seems,
when the talk turns to black folks.
And don't get me started on the war in Iraq. That misadventure has cost $250 billion so
far. If the government can take your tax money and mine to tear up another country, then
rebuild -- or at least attempt to rebuild -- the infrastructure that it destroyed over a B.S. tip, then
it can take some of that money to rebuild the inner cities that spawn young black men.
Now I'm not saying that black people should wait around and do nothing about improv-
ing the plight of young black males until the government acts. What I am saying, though, is
that the government represents us, and we need to play a more active role in forcing it to
address this crisis. Black voters and agitators -- like the ones who keep organizing these mil-
lion-whatever marches -- need to insure that the plight of young black men becomes a top
political issue. No politicians ought to be able to come to forums in our communities, for
example, without a plan for helping us to deal with their predicament. And we shouldn't vote
for, nor return to office, any politician who doesn't have a plan for turning this situation
Something has to be done. Because I'd like to see fewer brothers in orange jumpsuits --
with a pimp stroll preceding the tearto come. 1
MY DAY p
EMANCIPATION FROM DIABETES
Ester Davis. ReligioinAndSpirituality.com
Our history is packed full of emancipation locally and glob-
ally In 1829. the Catholic Emancipation Act freed Roman
Catholics from the ci'il disabilities imposed on them by English
law in the United Kingdom. In 1844, there was the emancipation
of the British West Indies. In 1861, Tsar Alexander issued an emancipation manifesto freeing
serfs in Russia. In 1863, President Lincoln issued an edict freeing all slaves in the Confederate
States, declaring the abolition of slavery in America. In 1920 women won the right to vote in
the United States, now referred as the emancipation of women. There is further the emancipa-
tion of the Jews. History is chronicling the Emancipation Network, which is destined to cease
human trafficking. History has documented the emancipation of homosexuality in Germany.
The Caribbean Islands celebrate Emancipation Day every year with festive costumes, dance
and food. All states allow emancipation of minors. Children have sought emancipation from
parents in court and won.
This past week an astronaut, wearing a helmet camera, repaired a wing on the
International Space Station without a safety net. Imagine stepping outside on nothing, landing
on nothing. Imagine the vastness. This space walk, about a football field length from the space
ship, was available via satellite television on your PC, for free. Imagine the many master-
minds, locally and globally, contributing to the International Space Station over the years. In
2004, I remember a pair of astronauts, one from America, one from Russia, pulled off anoth-
er risky complex mission to make a repair. They accomplished the space walk, finishing "well
ahead" of schedule. Imagine two countries accomplishing an uncommon act ahead of sched-
ule. (Where should that place "common acts"?) Remember now, the first television weather
satellite was placed in 1960. In 1963, two spacecrafts were in orbit at the same time. That same
year in an October issue of Wireless World, a concept proposal on global communications was
written. The rest of the story is "walking" history, because everyone is walking around with a
Amazingly, we have witnessed in our lifetime other benchmark successes that we all ulti-
mately benefit from, because progress embraces us all. Our world is indeed wireless. Our
world has a new airplane that flies longer with less fuel, lighter in weight, carrying more peo-
ple. Our world has a car that can parallel park without human intervention. And my all-time
favorite ... the average home can order 700 television channels. You have to ask yourself, have
we lost our minds?
Emancipation is liberation, being set free from subjections of any kind. Today, our world
is a "slave" to sickness, and our lawmakers are comfortable with our being there. Over half of
our population is on legal or illegal pills. I personally see the greatest danger to our society as
not global warming, not energy prices, not the economy or race relations. Our greatest danger
is our health, locally and globally. In the greatest interest of all humanity, we want and need
enancipation from our two largest enemies, diabetes and obesity. To accomplish this is not a
risky, complex mission requiring a long bureaucracy map of madness in two meetings a day
somewhere in a five-star hotel only to set the next meeting. The statistical signs and stats on
diabetes and obesity have only doubled, with no "repair" in sight. If we can create a wireless
world in 20 years, surely we can emancipate and retire diabetes and obesity by ... say, 2015,
starting with Texas. The evidence is clear. Tools, toys and triumphs matter, but history reminds
us that people do also. Can we please have a true better world?

need who otherwise may not have turkey at Thanksgiving," said Amy Walenta of the
Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms More To Share program. "Hunger is an ongo-

donation is a starting point, and we challenge other businesses and individuals across the
nation to join us in helping to fight hunger however they can."

BUILD A BEAR WORKSHOP Guests Sending Teddy Bear Hugs To
Children and Families in Southern California Build-A-Bear Workshop
stores in the U.S. and the.American Red Cross from Thursday, Nov. 1st through
Sunday, Dec. 2nd. Build-A-Bear Workshop is inviting Guests throughout the
U.S. to make special $1 pin pad donations in the stores.
All donations will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help-
not only the families impacted by the fires last week, but those who are served
by the Red Cross all year long. This relief effort is yet another way Build-A-
i Bear Workshop is able to give back to the community and is an opportunity for
children to help other children and families in need. Children want to show
they care and in times of crisis they look for ways to help other children.
Setting up this relief effort is a great opportunity for kids to get involved. More
importantly, for children and families going through a difficult time, a teddy
bear companion can often provide the special love and comfort needed to make
their days brighter.

Crime Pays. Consider
the success of the

drama about the life of a
Black crime lord/entre-
preneur who made mil-
lions in Harlem during the
'70s has great potential.
Yet on the screen, even
with star casting, a com-
prehensive script, and

In the 11th hour, a bond
grows bet ween the crime
lord and cop, which mir-
rors a relationship the real

kinship, which lasts for
scant minutes at film's
end, has more heart than
the rest of the movie.

JAGUARS' 13TH ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE KICKS OFF
Community Donations Will Help Second Harvest Food Bank
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. INov. s. 2007HI -
\With the help of Winn-Dixie and the
Jackson ille Jaguars. Jackson\ille's Second
Haw-iet Food Bankg is stocking up its shclh k
o\ei the next four \veeks to build its in\ventorv in
time for Thanksgiving and Christnma the
time of ear the.\ feed the most First Coast resl-
dents. Last \ear. durnne the months of
November and December. the Food Bank dis-
tributed more than 620,000 meals. Second
Harvest needs just as much help this year, and First Coast residents have the opportunity
to donate nonperishables at any area Winn-Dixie store for the next two weeks.
The Jacksonville Jaguars and Winn-Dixie are doing their part to help Second Harvest
with the Jaguars' 13th Annual Food Drive, which kicked off Tuesday night at the Winn-
Dixie on Roosevelt Boulevard. Through Nov. 18, nonperishable items can be donated at
any Winn-Dixie store throughout the First Coast in designated barrels provided by the
Food Bank. Last year, these two organizations helped raise more than 213,000 pounds of
food for Second Harvest during the annual food drive. This significant amount helped the
charity through a crucial part of the year when they receive the most requests for assis-
tance from disadvantaged community members.
"Ending hunger, especially in Jacksonville, has been a goal of the Jaguars since the
franchise came here in 1995," said Executive Director of Corporate Sponsorship Macky
Weaver at the evening news conference. "This great challenge can only be diminished if
we all work together as a community, and we need everyone's help. Every person
deserves to have a satisfying meal each night, especially with the holiday season quickly
First Coast residents can purchase nonperishables and drop them in the collection bar-
rels provided by Second Harvest Food Bank and located inside each Winn-Dixie store.
Additionally, those attending the Jaguars game against the San Diego Chargers can make
monetary donations at the stadium's gates before the game begins. Through the Food
Bank, every dollar can bring up to $53:00 worth of food to Jacksonville!
"We are thrilled to partner with the Jaguars again and help boost canned food dona-
tions for the Second Harvest Food Bank," Dave Henry, Winn-Dixie's senior vice president
of marketing, said at the event. "Those in need are all around, and it is especially impor-
tant to reach out during the holidays when these organizations require the most support."
The Food Bank's need is year-round, but it is growing with the holiday season
approaching. ,Just last year, the Food Bank's shelves were at an all-time low.
With the help of this food drive, the shelVes were successfully replenished. Last year,
Wimn-Dixie and its customers donated more than 117,900 pounds of food.
The mission of the Second Harvest Food Bank is to feed hungry people by soliciting
and judiciously distributing food and grocery products and to educate the public about the
nature of, and solutions to, the problems of hunger. There are two basic components: res-
cuing surplus food to redistribute to local nonprofit organizations serving the hungry, and
providing nutritious meals and healthy snacks to children from low-income families
through community-based Kids Cafe sites. Last year, the Food Bank provided more than
7.5 million pounds of food through almost 515 different member agencies. For every $1
donated, the Food Bank provides up to $53.00 worth of food to the hungry.
Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., is one of the nation's largest food retailers, with 521 stores.
Founded in 1925, the. company is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. For more infor-

I' ri ARIES
S. j March 21st thru April
Monday is a truly fantastic day for you. You
feel a little insecure, however, because you're
so ahead of the curve -- so out there in front
and lonely at the top. But you're looking good
and impressing everyone. Tuesday and
Wednesday, you get wind of other people's
opinions of you and you almost start blushing.
Thursday through Saturday, don't let all the
attention go to your head. Keep doing what
you've been doing. Keep charging forward. If
you need help, call up a pal. Then, on Sunday,
get some sleep already.
April 20th thru IMa 20th
Money has a way of flying out of your life on
Monday. And it's not just physical bills: Be
wary of anything that might deplete your bank
account at the start of the week, including
long-term financial agreements. It's just not
the time for those. Tuesday and Wednesday,
you put on some old-fashioned rock music and
start thinking about the world as a giant system
of related parts. You start thinking like a hip-
pie, basically. But not in a bad way! Thursday
through Saturday, don't take anything anyone
else says too seriously. They're most likely just
playing around. On Sunday, link arms with a
May 21st thru June 21st
You and a good friend know each other so
well. This is especially helpful -- this commu-
nicating on another level that you're doing --
early in the week when you take on a project
together. (Besides, you love any excuse for a
project.) Tuesday and Wednesday, things get
intense, and it's possible you'll have doubts
about whether this person should be as close to
you as you've let them become. What you
Should do is talk about your doubts openly.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are
impressionable days for you. Expect some of
your strongly held opinions to be revised a little.
June 22nd thru July 22nd
Rather than feel frustrated and tapped out, do
something you love on Monday. Let the peo-
ple who are waiting for things from you know
that you need a little extra time. And then go to
the zoo. Or the movies. Or wherever you feel
like going. Tuesday and Wednesday you're
feeling similarly antisocial, but not in a nega-
tive or cynical way. You're just lost in your
own head. By the second half of the week --
Thursday through Sunday -- you've come out
of your shell. Engage the people around you
with a startling intellectual debate. Make a
pronouncement and see if you can support it.
July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Monday is hot! Not in the weather sense, but
in the romantic sense. It's an insane explosion
of passion. Lucky you! Throw your all into
Monday, and take some pictures or something,
because the rest of the week you're bogged
down in all kinds of work matters. Tuesday
and Wednesday, as much as you disagree with
someone, hear them out. It'll mean the world of
difference to them. Thursday through Saturday, you
most likely need to let go of something.
(Stubbornness?) Sunday offers lots of enticements,
but you can't decide which sounds the most fun.
There's nothing romantic in the stars on Sunday.
.' X Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
You'd love to rush right through things on
Monday, but you didn't get this far by rushing
through things. That's just not your style.
You're meticulous -- for better or worse. This
week, it's, for the better. Tuesday and
Wednesday, it's as if the universe is rewarding
you for all you do. It's rewarding you with
romance, mostly, but also with creative inspi-
ration and plenty of stuff to laugh about. The
highlight of the second half of the week is that
you find a new way to keep track of your mail.
Admit it: This sort of thing makes you want to
run, jump in the air and click your heels
II -- CCm
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd
You've found a good groove on Monday.
,People are nodding constantly as you talk -- a
sign that they're with you, they're impressed by
what you have to say and they see you as an
expert in whatever subject you're discussing.
Funny, then, that you'd be paralyzed by the
'blahs' on Tuesday and Wednesday. It could be
that something in your past, for whatever rea-
son, has snuck into your thoughts again. Or
possibly it's just middle-of-the-week lethargy.
Good news: It has completely evaporated by
Thursday, and the entire second half of the
week is romantic and fun. Good times.
Ocr23rd thru No\ 21st
It's easy to lose sight of what you really think
on Monday, what with all your friends follow-
ing the crowd. The group mentality is some-
thing, isn't it? Don't buy into it. Be an icono-
clast. Trust yourself. Tuesday and Wednesday,
your instincts are your greatest weapon.
Communicate honestly -- even when it's tough
to do so -- and you'll impress the pants off
everyone. Thursday through Saturday, you're
nearly blindsided by'a huge issue at home. It
needs your attention, stat! Sunday's a bit mel-
lower. Kissing someone is in the stars.
No\ 22nd thru Dec 21st
You march into the week with total confidence,
and comfortable shoes (which are important).
Joy, goodwill and exploration all figure into
your day on Monday. It's a great first note to a
good week. Happiness is a constant theme.
Tuesday and Wednesday, you find a way to
enjoy yourself without spending a dime.
(Bonus!) Thursday through Saturday, the
exploration theme resurfaces, 'although the
explorations are more social than athletic.
You're not climbing mountains; you're meeting
people and exchanging ideas. It feels great.
Come Sunday, you're in listening mode.
S Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
On Monday, you don't see how you're possibly
going to get everything done this week. But it's
your ability to get things done under impossible
circumstances that has gotten you where you are.
SPlus, come Tuesday you're amazed at how quick-
ly the tide has turned in your favor. Wednesday,
too -- you cross tons of things off your list.
Terrific! What are you going to do with all this
free time? Thursday through Saturday, you're
utterly inspired by, well, by yourself. You could
make a few improvements to your interpersonal
style, but you're a star. This weekend, you're smil-
ing a lot.
Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
You're more connected to your friends on
Monday than you have been in a while. You
feel that with them by your side, you could do
anything. (That's more or less true.) Tuesday
and Wednesday, though, you're having a hard
time getting anything done. You can barely
keep from falling asleep in your soup! Get
some sleep. Then, from Thursday through
Saturday, expect a total reversal in the energy
department. You're basically a source of light.
And laughter. And excitement. No wonder
everyone's coming up to you at parties. On
Sunday, plug yourself into a wall socket (not
literally!) and recharge.
Feb 19th thru NMarch 20th
It's okay that the person above you in your
company's organizational tree has a "different
opinion than you do about some matter. The
fact that this person always thinks they're
right? Annoying, yes. But try to let that roll off
your back. That's the best thing you can do.
Besides, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the
coworkers you love -- the ones you'd consider
hanging out with outside of work -- are
absolutely on your side. During the second
half of the week (and all through the week-
end), you're thinking about your outside-of-
work life. You're in the :ood for a change.

a vehicle traveling east on 8th St. at
Franklin St. being driven by a 46 year
old female (suspect). A computer
check of the Florida Tag came back to
a 1984 Dodge Mini Van not the vehi-
cle that it's attached to. The officer
conducted a traffic stop of the listed
vehicle and made contact with the driver suspect. The officer asked the suspect for
her driver's license. The suspect replied she did not have a driver's license because
it had been suspended. Computer checks of the suspect's driver's license revealed
her license was suspended for 30 day for failing to pay seven traffic fines. The sus-
pect was read her Miranda rights, arrested and transported to jail and charge with a
VIOLATION OF PROBATION -An officer served an active warrant oni a 20 year
old male (suspect) located in the 5300 block of Timuquana Rd. for violation of pro-
bation by the "Department of Corrections". The probation officer swore out a war-
rant stating the suspect tested positive for marijuana and refused to report back to
his probation officer by his assigned date as he was instructed.. The suspect was read
his Miranda rights, arrested, and trans-
ported to jail and charged with a felony.
VISITING AN INMATE A 34-year-
old female (suspect) came to the jail-
house located at 500 Adams St. E. to
visit an inmate. A check of her ID and
personnel revealed that she had an out-
standing warrant out on her for breaking
her "probation and fraud" issued the
Judge. The visitor was searched and
read her Miranda rights, arrested, and
booked into -jail, and charged with a
S~ felony. 4
UNSAFE DRIVING -A police officer was on a.
call in the 600 block of Chestnut St. when he heard
what sounded like a car driving on a flat tire. The
officer observed a vehicle being driven by a 32
year old male (suspect) who turned off of Gilmore
St. onto Chestnut St. in a vehicle with a flat on the
left front wheel. The driver attempted to drive by
the police officer's patrol car to get home. At that
point the officer made a traffic stop of the vehicle,
made contact with the driver suspect, and asked
him for his identification. The suspect stated he
had no driver's license. He was just trying to get
his car home. The officer advised the driver that it
was unsafe to drive a vehicle with a flat tire, espe-
cially due to all the rain and wet road conditions. A check of the driver's license with
ID and records revealed that the suspect's driver's license was suspended for 22
counts of traffic violations over a three month period. The suspect was read his
Miranda rights, handcuffed and transported to jail, and charged with a misdemeanor
FALSELY CASHING A CHECK -A police officer was dispatched to the 10000
block of Haverford Rd. in reference to a 49-year-old female (suspect) making
threats. Upon arrival, the officer made a check of the suspect's ID, which revealed
that the suspect had an outstanding warrant out on her for falsely cashing a compa-
ny check. The suspect cashed a stolen check at Publix Store on Monument Rd. The
check was stole from Trailers & More, Co. The suspect has never worked for this
company. A photo identified the suspect at the time of the transaction and her dri-
ver's license was used in the transaction. The check totaled $479.23. The suspect
was read her Miranda rights. She advised that she worked for a black male name
"BLACK" that agreed to pay her $200.00 a
day to clean his house. She told the officer
that she worked for him for two days; and at
the end of the job he paid her with the com-
pany check in the amount of $400.00. She
also told the officer that she inquired about
the company check and he replied it was his
company. He then drove her home. The sus-

Sharon Leal: Living a Dream Come True!
*5 C. J.
__ A 2T
By Rych McCain,
Photos 2007 Andre'. B.'
When you are born in
Tucson, Arizona and reared
in the modest central
California town of Fresno,
how much do you dare to
dream of conquering the
bright lights of this ruthless
monster called Hollywood?
Sharon Leal is from this
very background and not
only dreamed the dream but
had a vision, formulated a
game plan with goals, and
then began to accomplish
them. Leal can be seen star-
ring as Kelli Whitfield in the
upcoming Screen Gems hol-
iday movie This Christmas.
The all star cast ensemble
includes: Delroy Lindo, Idris
Elba, Loretta Devine, teen
sensation Chris Brown,
Keith Robinson, Laz
Alonso, Columbus Short,
Regina King, Lauren
London, David Banner and
From early childhood,
Leal began singing and
found her passion for acting
while a student at Roosevelt
High School for the
Performing Arts. This lead
to local theater productions
such as "Ain't Misbehavin,"
"Into the Woods," and
"Little Shop of Horrors."
After graduation, Leal relo-
cated.to the "Big Apple" i.e.,
New York City, where she
landed major roles in the
Broadway hits "Miss
Saigon" and "Rent." She
went on to star in the origi-
nal musical "Bright Lights
Big City" at the New York
Theater Workshop and
starred as the legendary
Lena Horne in the
Manhattan Theater Club
production of "Stormy
After winning best sup-
porting actress for her role in
the short film. 17,at Are the
Odds at the New\ York
Independent Film Festival, Leal
moved west to Los Angeles and
became a series regular for four
seasons on the David E. Kelly,
FOX-TV hit "Boston Public. She
guest starred on other TV shows
such as "LAX," "Las Vegas," and
"CSI: Miami." Then she secured
the role of a lifetime as the fourth
Dreamgirl in the Golden Globe
Award winning film Dreamgirls
opposite Beyonce', Jamie Foxx
and Jennifer Hudson. It was actu-
ally her first major film role!
Leal's last movie was as Tyler
Perry's super fine lawyer wife
Diane in Why Did I Get
Married?, opposite Janet Jackson
which was the number one box
office hit on its opening weekend.
One could easily say that Leal is
on a roll at the present. She is
relaxed in her suite at the fabu-
lous W Hotel in Westwood when
we sat to talk about her latest role
as Kelli Whitfield in "This
Christmas." How much of the
real she was ifi this role? Leal
perks up, "Everybody who knows
me knows I'm a little quiet and
reserved so I really was excited to
jump into this role because she
(Kelli) is just a real bold, confi-
dent and sassy girl. I'd like to say
that on a good day, maybe I might
incorporate some of those quali-
ties, but it was a lot of acting
How does Leal get mentally
psyched up to perform different
roles? She gives an approving
look saying, "usually it's just a lot
of sort of sub-texted kind of fig-
uring out. I mean I get very
detailed about a character from
when I think she was born to
finding out as much as I can from
the writer, having conversation
with Preston [the script's
writer/director/producer] to see
how he sort of came up with the
character. This particular film
was really about the chemistry
and a lot of it was just sort of
pooling off of what was given to
me by really talented actors that I
was surround by with this cast."
Leal's exotic look comes from
the fact that her dad is Black and
her mom is Filipino She hasn't
had much of the stereo type cast-
ing problems yet in her career
because of it. Leal is very optimistic in her
approach to growth and continued develop-
ment of her fast, upwardly moving career.
Leal's face illuminates when she says, "I def-
initely take the craft itself very seriously and
hopefully from role to role I'll grow and con-
tinue to evolve. Leal is married with one
child and we can look for her to be more
involved with her singing and songwriting.

By Rych McCain/ feed-.
After an unsatisfactory three-
omonth stint at TVT Records,
New York based independent label
Keeplock Entertainment, Inc.,
has picked up sticks and signed a
joint venture deal with UMGD'S
independent distribution arm,
Fontana Distribution. The move
gives them signing rights and the
national marketing, sales and dis-
tribution of a major label, while
being able to maintain the vision
and integrity in which they started.
First out of the box under the new
arrangement is North Carolina
native Sonny Rich, AKA DA
Queen City Trapman, whose DJ
Uneek produced single, Uhn,
Uhn, from his upcoming album
The Virus, is expected to be burn-
ing the airwaves nationally soon.
Atlanta artist Yang Ralph, for-
mally of the Throwback Boyz has
a single; Look Like Money on the
Universal Republic label that is
making the way in the clubs and
on the radio airwaves for his
upcoming debut solo album Most
Teen Actress/singer KeKe
Palmer's album So Uncool, on the
Atlantic Record label is out. It has
jamming beatz on the cuts but the
lyrics are decent and clean. With
the world wide movement
growing bigger and louder daily
to clean up our black music;
KeKe's new joint should be
heavily supported by those who
say they want the foul mouth,
self-degrading garbage off the
record shelves and radio air-
waves. Since KeKe is one of
my personal favorites in my self
appointed family of child/teen
artists, I will send a full CD and
a poster that KeKe herself will
sign to you personally, to the
first 10 readers who e-mail me.
Borders Books, under the
retailer's exclusive and propri-
etary publishing program, will
release a new book in time for
the holidays titled "And The
GRAMMY Goes To.. The
Official Story of Music's Most
Coveted Award." Written by
Rolling Stone Magazine and
Emmy nominated TV writer
David Wild and having a spe-
cial foreword written by 27
time Grammy winning music
producer and Grammy 50th
Quincy Jones. This hardcover,
commemorative book covers
the entire 50 years of the
Grammys with special
Wassup cont'd on D-8

3 Mo 'Divas Arrives in Jacksonville
The creator of the hit
concert 3 Mo 'Tenors has a
new hit on. his hands. 3
Mo 'Divas is coming to the
Times-Union Center in
Jacksonville for one per-
3 Mo' Divas follows
the great success of
Marion J. Caffey's inter-
national hit, 3 Mo' Tenors,
which opened to critical
.and audience acclaim in
New York City in 2000,
taped for PBS, recorded a
CD for RCA, recorded a
DVD for BMG and was
still touring strong in
2006. The 3 Mo' Divas
national tour kicks stops in
Jacksonville Nov. 16,
The tour stars Yvette
Gonzalez-Nacer, who has
been seen in Les
Miserables, West Side
Story and Cabaret, Laurice
Lanier, a 2002 graduate of
Julliard who has per-
formed at Carnegie Hall
and in La Boheme on
Broadway, and Jamet
Pittman, a Carnegie Hall
soloist who was also in
Broadway's La Boheme,
Porgy and Bess, and
The Mo' concept was
inspired by the incredibly
successful The Three
Tenors concerts. The liv-
ing legends used in that
series are of phenomenal
talent, icon stature and
deservedly so. Mr.
Caffey's ...Tenors and
...Divas fills a void ofsass
and versatility left by
those concerts. 3 Mo'
Divas is an entertaining,
theatrically staged con-
cert, perfonned magnifi-
cently by some of the most
phenonienal and versatile
talent the world has to

Based on the true life
story of drug kingpin
Frank Lucas who was
the king of the Harlem
heroin trade in the late
60's mid 70's. He was
the first and only brother
'to go around the New
York mafia by setting up
a direct buying link for
heroin in the Asian
Golden Triangle and
shipping it to the U.S. in
the hollowed out coffins
of American soldiers
killed in Vietnam.
Lucas with an eerie sense
of cold and heartless con-
viction. Crowe as Det.
Richie Roberts is
alter ego who is out to
nail him at any cost. The
two men have their own
individuals stories told
throughout the film and
they finally collide
toward the end. This
movie is a thriller with
only the necessary
action. This keeps it
more on a for real basis.
Gangsta film lovers
should receive this film
well. It has the look and
feel of the real McCoy
and mob films always do
well at the Oscars.
