Georgia Native Beaten, Placed in Body Bag Obama Most Liked of

Living Again. Telling His Story of Denver's Police Whipping Presidential Candidates


k i Lonzie Leath, Investigative Reporter, The Florida
and Georgia Star
Thomas Armstrong begged for mercy,
"Please don't kill me like you killed my
father." as Denver police officers beat him.
SFirst of all, he did not understand why he
was approached and definitely why he was
being beaten as he was punched and kicked.
He felt he would have a better chance of
survival if he "played" dead because then
they would stop beating on him. But at one
point, unknowingly, he was not conscious but noted that he was in a
body bag that was being zipped. All he could do was go into silent
prayer, calling on God. He wondered if this is what his father felt at
his last moment. Then, his earthly father appeared before him after
being dead 25 years and told him he could not come there yet. There
was too much waiting for him to do and changes to be made.
Why was TC stopped? In the original report, the officers said they
stopped him because a report had been made that a silent alarm had

AOL did a poll to rate the candidates' likability, and
again Obama was declared the winner. The latest polls
for the Iowa election show Obama mounting strong,
with the largest percentage supporting Obama. The
Iowa voters, which is 55 percent Democratic, say they
prefer a new direction and new ideas rather than focus
on experience, which is what the Clinton group is
stressing.
Even though Obama is the most likable of both par-
ties, the concern is, will he get the needed votes to win?

Da'Niyah Marie Jackson, 10-months old of Troy Hill, Pennsylvania died Saturday
after being beaten and sexually assaulted by her mother's live-in-boyfriend, accord-
ing to reports. Clinton Smith, 30, has been charged with homicide, rape, aggravated
assault, among other charges. Doctors confirmed she had been sexually assaulted.
Mario Alphonso Wood and Jonathan Bishop, both 19, grabbed a 83-year-old
woman, snatched her purse and kidnapped her in her driveway. They then placed
her in their trunk, beat her and left her at a cemetery on the westside of Jacksonville.
She was able to crawl for help and the two suspects have been arrested.
Christian Allen 21, was stopped by police officers during a routine stop in Mayport
because of his loud radio.
According to reports, a confrontation with the police occurred after Allen and his
passenger ran. Once they caught up with Allen and could not control him, he was
tased. Allen later died while with the officer. An autopsy has been
ordered. The gun and what appeared to be crack cocaine was in Allen's
pocket. His mother thinks he ran because he did not have a valid driv-
ers license. Another man, Conrad Pervis Lowman was tased by
Jacksonville officers about 48 hours later and also died.

in requesting a complete evaluation and explanation regarding the
Simonds-Johnson Park to the community she represents. She is
not avoiding the media, she is respecting the desire of the leaders
of her constituents who met with Boselli and others on November
30, 2006 advising that the foundation was operating an after
school program and nothing else. The neighborhood residents
CityCouncil ady want to know the truth about the license agreement. The group
said they have a numberof questions and have requested their
representative, Councillady Lee to help them through the vetting process which
occurred prior to her taking her seat on July 1, 2007. "She is compelled to investi-
gate this deal because it is not passing the smell test," said Elder Lee Harris.
Their questions: (1) Where are the minutes from the November 30, 2006 meeting?
It is a violation of the Florida Sunshine Law if no minutes were compiled and a
report filed. (2) Why did Mayor Peyton authorize acceptance of the financial gift
from Boselli with conditions attached? (3) Why is Tony Boselli demanding a
$25,000 reimbursement.of his gift to the City of Jackson- B

A Litany of Thanksgiving


Child Watch Column
By Marian Wright Edelma, President of the Children's Defense Fund


In this season of
Thanksgiving, I wish you
wealth in the things of true
value --family, friends,
health and peace of mind
and spirit. For those of us
with plenty, it's a time to
stretch our waistbands
with customary comfort
food turkey, dressing,
mashed potatoes and cran-
berry sauce. This is a joy-
ous indulgence because it's
shared with loved ones.
Thanksgiving is also the
day when we watch tele-
vised parades, usually
punctuated by, the arrival
of Santa Claus and the
beginning of the count-
down for Christmas shop-
ping. It is my hope that
those of us who begin our
gift shopping the day after,
known to some as "Black
Friday," will remember the
families who are less for-
tunate, especially the chil-
dren. When my family
gathers in this time of
Thanksgiving, we begin
the holy season leading to
Christmas and Hanukkah
with the prayer of African-
American theologian
Howard Thurman, A
Litany of Thanksgiving, to
help us remember for what


and how much we should
truly be thankful.
In Your presence, O
God, we make our
Sacrament of
Thanksgiving.
We begin with the sim-
ple things of our days:
Fresh air to breathe,
Cool water to drink,
The taste of food,
The protection of hous-
es and clothes,
The comforts of home.
For all these we make
an act of Thanksgiving
this day!
We bring to mind all the
warmth of humankind that
we have known:
Our mothers' arms,
The strength of our
fathers,
The playmates of our
childhood,
The wonderful stories
brought to us from the
lives of many who talked
of 'days gone by when
fairies and giants and
diverse kinds of magic
held sway;
The tears we have shed,
the tears we have seen;
The excitement of
laughter and the twinkle in
the eye with its reminder
that life is good.
For all these we make
an act of Thanksgiving
this day.
We finger one by: one"
the messages of hope that

await us at the crossroads:
The smile of approval
from those who held in
their
hands the reins of our
security,
The tightening of the
grip of a single handshake
when we feared the step
before us in the darkness,
The whisper in our
heart when the temptation
was fiercest and the
claims of appetite were
not to be denied,
The crucial word said,
the simple sentence from
an open page when our
decision hung in the bal-
ance.
For all these we make
an act of Thanksgiving
this day.
We passed before us the
mainsprings .of our her-.
itage:
The fruits of the labors
of countless generations
who lived before us, with-
out whom our own lives
would have no meaning,
The seers who saw
visions and dreamed
dreams;
The prophets who
sensed a truth greater than
the mind could grasp, and
whose words could only
find fulfillment in the
years which they would
never see,
The workers whose
sweat has watered the
trees, the leaves of which
are for the healing of the
nations,
The pilgrims who set
their sails for lands
beyond all horizons.
",:,


whose courage made paths
into new worlds and far-
off places,
The savior whose blood
was shed with the reck-
lessness that only a dream
could inspire, and God
could command.
For all these we make
an act of Thanksgiving
this day.
We linger over the
meaning of our own life
and commitment to which
we give the loyalty of our
heart and mind:
The little purposes in
which we have shared
with our loves, our desires,
our gifts,
The restlessness which
bottoms all we do with its
stark insistence that we
have never done our best,
we have never reached for
the highest,
The big hope that never
quite deserts us, that we
and our kind will study
war no more, that love and
tenderness and all the
inner graces of Almighty
affection will cover the life
of the children of God as
the waters cover the sea.
All these and more than
mind can think and heart
can feel, we make as our
sacrament of
Thanksgiving to Thee,
Our Father, in humbleness
of mind and simplicity of
, heart.

Jacksonville Links Celebrates Its 41st
Anniversary In Friendship
"That's What Friends Are For"
It was early in 1966 when a group of ladies steered by the late Mrs.
Elinor Littlejohn embarked on the idea of establishing a Links chapter
in Jacksonville. It would be exactly twenty years after the incorporation
of the national organization in Philadelphia, PA. Fifteen eligible women
were chosen to be members of this fine organization: Mesdames the late
Mary Lewis Betsch, the late Gloria Brooks, the late Miriam Burney,
Bessie Canty, Elizabeth Downing, the late Alethia Gibbs, the late Kate
Graves, Lois Iszard, the late Mary Jones, Joyce Lawson, the late
Elinor Littlejohn, the late Meltonia McGriff, the late Carolyn Miller,
the late Sara Stewart and the late Sadie Tillis. Through their vision, lead-
ership and character, the Jacksonville Chapter came to be.

program director for the State of Florida's Extension Program. She is a
past president of the Jacksonville Links Chapter as well as having been

achievements during her career: The first African American program

Month Honoree, the Mayor's Commission on the
Status of Women; and establishing the nutrition pro-
gram with the State of Florida that went into low
income communities, offering education, training and
other much-needed services.
Her motto is, "There is no situation you can't over-
come" and her five children attribute their successes to
their Mother and their late father Bennie Canty. both
having provided a loving and always supportive home
environment. Mrs. Canty's loving and caring nurturing
extended beyond her family and included many who
were less fortunate, including one young lady who
completed Harvard's Medical School with Mrs. Enjoying friend
Canty's help and encouragement. Her five children Chajt, Links,
(one daughter Mrs. Susan Canty Jones is an active Newman anl he
member of the Jacksonville Links and the wife of Newman, owners,
renowned physician Dr. Kenneth Jones), eleven Jacksonville Cha

Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson Downing, a
retired school teacher for the Duval county
School Board served at Matthew W. Gilbert
High School for several years retiring while at
Southside Middle School. She was married to
the late Dr. Jean Downing, who was a dentist
in the Jacksonville area for many years prior to
his death. Their two sons Jean, Jr. (Dorethea)
and Keith (Delores) Downing have given her
two granddaughters, two grandsons and one
great-grandson.

Almighty God, Father of all mercies and giver of all
comfort. Deal graciously, we pray thee,
with those who mourn, that casting every care on thee,
they may know the consolation of thy love,
through Jesus Christ our LORD.

to di. "To everr-
death ad f things there
ing. U, dh is a season
of life adand a time

en. A time to be born, and a time

No one wants to talk about
death and fimerals. 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. Unank-\ou notes.

quickly Nlan\ opt for 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 or
buried? Maybe you prefer to
have your ashes scattered?
An option some people take
is to donate organs and tissues to
a medical school (have a donor
card and check on requirements).
If you would rather have a
memorial service express that
wish. That means a service in the
funeral home or a church where
the body is not present. A com-
mon misconception is that when
the body is cremated you don't
hold a fimeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

Study Finds Lack of Health Insurance


Among Blacks Hinders Patients from


Seeking Treatment


With more than 80,000
lower-limb amputations
reported annually among
people with diabetes in the
United States, there's a
possibility many amputa-
tions, especially among
African-Americans, could
have been prevented if
patients had health insur-
ance. A recent national sur-
vey conducted by the
American Podiatric
Medical Association
(APMA) found nearly ten
percent of the 3.2 million
African-Americans with
diabetes are uninsured. Of
those, 75 percent have
NOT seen a podiatric
physician for diabetes
treatment reportedly due to
no health coverage, com-
pared to 45 percent of
those with insurance who
do see a podiatrist.
"Podiatric physicians
are a critical part of a dia-
betes management team,",
said Dr. Christian
Robertozzi, APMA presi-


%44( P.


dent. "'Because a person
with diabetes can experi-
ence circulatory problems
and even loss of
sensation in the feet,
it's critical that they
receive proper foot care to
avoid complications, such
diabetic ulcers or amputa-
tions."
In fact, diabetes is the
leading cause of non-trau-
matic, lower-limb amputa-
tions in United States.
African-Americans are
almost three times as like-
ly to suffer from lower-
limb amputations as
Caucasian-Americans.
The
study, which surveyed
by phone 600 African-
Americans across the
country with diabetes or a
family history of the dis-
ease, revealed 97 percent
of those with the disease
regularly visited a doctor.
However, 57 percent
reported they'd never
seen a podiatric physician


I~qw


because many felt, "there
is nothing wrong with my
feet."
The reality is a vast
majority of amputations
can be prevented if the fol-
lowing potential warning
signs are detected early in
the feet:
-- Numbness
-- Redness
-- Tingling sensations
Burning sensations
-- Loss of hair
-- Cuts and scrapes that
are slow to heal.
The appearance of any
of these symptoms are a
sign that one needs to see
a podiatric physician.
Tingling in the feet (68%),
cramping in the calves
(54%), burning in the feet
(48%) and slow to heel
wounds (16%) are some
of the most common
lower-limb ailments
reported by African-
Americans with diabetes
in the APMA study.

Regina King, Versatile Actress On Course For Cinema Greatness!


By Rych McCain
feedbackrych@sbcglobal. net
Photos 2004-6 by
Andre' B. Murray/berna-
gency.photoreflect. corn

She just may have the
prettiest and sexiest hazel
eyes in all of show busi-
ness! She is definitely a
master acting talent, with
a versatile range and the
track record to back it up
but you would be hard
press to tell it by her
humble unassuming
demeanor if you are in
her presence. We are dis-
cussing Regina King and
her role as eldest daugh-
ter Lisa Moore in the
Screen Gems holiday
movie THIS CHRIST-
MAS. King won the BET
Best Actress Award and
NAACP Image Award for
Outstanding Supporting
Actress in a Motion
Picture in 2005 for her
role in RA" as Margie
Hendricks who was one
of Ray Charles' mistress-
es and a member of his
famous Raylettes backup
singing group.
King has had a string
of roles that are not typi-
cally tailored for black
actresses such as Legally


Blonde 2 with Reese
Witherspoon; Miss
Congeniality 1&2 with
Sandra Bullock and A
Cinderella Story with
Hilary Duff. King played
Cuba Gooding Jr's wife
in the Oscar-winning,
Tom Cruise block buster
Jerry Maguire and Will
Smith's wife in the spy
thriller Enemy of The
State as well as Martin
Lawrence's love interest
in A Thin Line Between
Love and Hate. The Los
Angeles native began her
career at age 14 as Marla
Gibbs' daughter Brenda
on the television sitcom
"227." The show lasted
for five seasons then she
went into film and did
three John Singleton
epics i.e., Boyz N the
Hood, Poetic Justice and
Higher Learning. King
has gone on the compile a
TV arid. Movie resume
that would choke a horse!
In her latest role as
Lisa Moore, the eldest
married daughter of the
Whitfield family, King
reflects on why the chem-
istry in the movie and on
the set was so genuinely
real between the cast


members. "It came natu-
ral. It wasn't anything
that had to be worked on.
When ever we sat togeth-
er, we just always had
fun and we trusted each
other she smiles."
In a couple of scenes
King gets to show off her
incredibly fit and shapely
body. What does she do
to maintain that well
sculptured hour glass fig-
ure? King blushes and
laughs at the same time
with a thank you for the
compliment. "I work out.
I do a little bit of cardio. I
hike a lot with my dog. I
didn't realize how much
that was keeping me in
shape until you're in
shape. Actually, the first
time I ever noticed was
when my girlfriend went
with me to hike. She was
like @#$%; you do this
three times a week and
she was red as a lobster!"
King also recalls the
frigidness of her out door
fight scene with her sister
Kelli (Sharon Leal) in the
rain. Her eyes quiver and
her arms draw together as
she describes the
moment. "That was the
coldest I have ever been


in my whole entire life!"
She mocks the weather
saying, "What type of
God would let that scene
happen on a 30 degree
day? It was ridiculous. I
normally can't sleep with
many clothes on but I
went to sleep in thermals.
It took me-hours to warm
up but hey, it's all for the
craft!"
When asked about the
appeal of her and other
black actors in the mar-
ketplace that mainstream
Hollywood always ques-
tions, King answers,
"Often they say that we
don't sell here or world-
wide but the majority of
my fan mail is from over-
seas. Like literally ten let-
ters out of a hundred are
from the states. So if we
don't sell overseas, who
the hell are all of these
people? Everywhere I go,
I really appreciate the
genuine energy that I get
from people. Not to say
that it wouldn't be great
to win an Oscar or an
award or something but
once I win, that's over
and done. I don't ever
want the love that I get in
the streets to stop."

Wake Up Call
With the recent events
happening with the Jena
6 in Louisiana, the
Palmdale 4 in California
and countless other cases
all over the U.S. and
Canada, it is time that
blacks in both countries
collectively flex their
economic muscle to put a
hurtin' where it counts
most, in pocketbooks.
The hanging of nooses
and other racially hateful
acts have put blacks back
on the defense like it did
'during the last civil rights
era of the 1960's and we


are becoming united
again. Adversity always
makes us do that! My
solution is to BOYCOTT
CHRISTMAS! Don't
buy "crap until after the
first of the year and hear
them cry uncle! Can we
keep our snoots out of the
liquor bottle and away
from the extravagant
gifts that will plunge us
further in debt for the
month of December and
avoid the harassing bill
collector calls that will
begin in February and
March? If not the joke
is on us!
TV
Teen heartthrob broth-
ers Oren and Zachary
Isaiah Williams recently
shot their own TV pilot
titled "Calvin and
Freddie's Cosmic
Encounters." The show
is about two regular
school boys who come
across a teen alien from
another planet who gives
them powers to battle
space creatures who are
trying to take over earth.
Calvin and Freddie are
regular students but turn
into superheroes when
necessary. Several major
networks are in the hunt
to pick it up.


Movies
This Christmas stars
Delroy Lindo, Idris Elba,
Loretta Devine, Chris
Brown, Keith Robinson,
Laz Alonso, Columbus
Short, Sharon Leal,
Lauren London, Mekhi
Phifer and Regina King.
This is definitely a good
family holiday movie.
The cast is a perfect blend
of believable personali-
ties that make you feel as
if you, were in the midst
of an actual family. Chris
Brown (Baby) is coming
up on his acting chops but
his singing is off-the-
hook in the club and
church scenes. Regina
King (Lisa), Sharon Leal
(Kelli) and Lauren
London (Melanie) are the
fine and sexy sisters that
any dude with properly
functioning eyes in his
head would have loved to
live next door to. The
same could be said for a
girl as well when you
have Chris Brown
(Baby), Idris Elba
(Quentin) and Columbus
Short (Claude) for next
door brothers.
The entire Whitfield
family comes together for
Christmas for the first
time in four years at the


home of the matriarch
affectionately known as
Ma' Dere superbly
played by Loretta
Devine. The Whitfield's
have their dramatic
moments and secrets etc.
come out but they some-
how get through it. This
is a must see movie.
P2 stars Wes Bentley,
Rachel Nichols, Simon
Reynolds and Grace
Lynn Kung This is a tale
of a young female exec
who works late on
Christmas Eve. When she
gets to her car it won't
start. Since she is parked
underground, her cell
phone has no signal. She
eventually discovers that
the psycho parking lot
security guard was the
one who disabled her
vehicle and. now the
chase is on to get her!
This movie will keep
your attention and is not
very predictable. Wes
Bentley is a believable
"nut case" guard and
Rachel Nichols plays off
of him very well.

his wallet, a pair of large scissors and his cell phone. He was wearing several
pieces of gold jewelry and his natural hair braided, without extensions. He was
then declared 'suspicious' according to the officer's definition.
TC said he started getting worried and start begging them not kill him as they had
done his father. He said this appeared to make the officer angry, so he punched
T.C. more than once. At that point, other'officers showed up and participated in the
beating. The only thing he remembered after that, said TC, was the prayers his
grandmother taught him at St. Andrews Holiness Church in Brunswick. So he
prayed as he was declared 'dead' and placed in the body bag.
TC said he was blessed that his girlfriend started looking for him after he took so
long to return from the store. When she reached the area and saw it was roped off
with yellow tape and a body bag, she learned that the person had died and was
being sent to the morgue. She then called his mother and brother. When they
arrived at the morgue hours later, they asked to see the body that had already been
tagged, 'John Doe'. When the bag was unzipped, they saw it was TC and that he
was breathing. He was immediately taken upstairs to the hospital. His older broth-
er, who is an educator, took pictures of him in the hospital which helps him to see
how badly he was beaten.
According to members of the community, the television stations had already
reported TC's death. It was later reported that he was in critical condition and was
not expected to live so his grandmother in Georgia tried to get funds together to
visit her grandson in Denver during his final hours. What she did not know was he
had already prayed her prayers and talked to her son (his father) and his spiritual
father and he was going to live. Within a week, he was back on track for recovery
and defying the doctor's evaluation that he would never walk again.
This happened to TC on Veteran's Day, 2005. His body only shows from the inci-
dent two years ago, some numbness in his feet and the scars on his face. He is fac-
ing charges of resisting arrest. His trial is scheduled for January 2, 2008. He needs
financial support to pay legal fees for the trial and what the police did to him.
Armstrong said he no longer drinks or smoke and he now lives to do God's work,
trying to save souls and help our youth understand how to stay out of trouble, work
to be successful in a legal field, avoid drugs and violence and understand in this
world as a Black person, you can't forget there is injustice so you must always be
the best and never forget who you are. He said, "I just want to save at least one
soul a day. This is Thanksgiving, I have a lot to be thankful for and I want to share
my blessing."

Mayor's Office-claim that the Simonds-Johnson Park Community Center was closed
in 2005 due to budget cuts? (5) Is there a public record indicating that former
District 8 City Councillady Gwen Yates used funds to restore the community center
before the Tony Boselli offer? (6) Is there a public record indicating that Councillady
Yates utilized any of her taxpayer-supplied bond funds to restore the center? (7)
When was the Youth Life Foundation of Tennessee replaced by the Tony Boselli
Foundation on the license agreement?
Elder Harris said the "issue is too important for the entire City of Jacksonville for
us not to be thorough." Other questions were regarding the approval of the design
and if a permit was issued for the renovation. The group is also asking the City
Council to delay the vote on Ordinance 2007-1045 from November 27 to January 22,
2008. The Jacksonville NAACP requested Mayor Peyton to get involved in the con-
troversy and the lease between the.City and the Boselli Foundation.

pulled out a .25-caliber gun and cocked it. The officer, using his trained skills, was
able to fire first, wounding Smith. Jacksonville officers were able to capture Smith
but could not locate the second man, known only by Smith's family as "D." Smith
does not have a clean offense record but, according to his family, he was pursuing
a GED to improve his job potential. According to the Sheriff's Office, the officer
that shot Smith, was acting within the department's policy and procedures.

Tattoo Parlor in Augusta Used to Bust Gangs
The Colur Tyme Tattoo Parlor first appeared to be operated solely to provide tat-
toos for customers. However, last week, it was exposed through a bust, that the
parlor was a setup to bust gangs. The parlor's walls were decorated with gang
monikers and symbols, another wall had bongs for smoking marijuana and other
drugs, and there was also a shape of a skull in the police-runed sting-operation. The
reason for the store-front operation was to snuff out gangs who the police depart-
ment in Richmond County, Georgia felt was strongly behind the violent crimes in
their community.
Under the operation, 100 sheriff's officers as well as state investigators and agents
of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were able to capture
sixty-eight suspects. These suspects were charged with a number of offenses such
as trafficking of illegal weapons to serious drug offenses. More than 300 weapons
were confiscated, including some high-powered assault rifles.
According to the report, the parlor business, which was originally very slow, grew
so large, they had to bring in more officers and the operation grew from the tattoo
business to gun sales, drugs and even stolen cars.
Because the officers studied their customers and learned to act as if they were a
part of their culture, they gained their trust to the extent, they were able to learn the
gang signs and allowed the customers to use a marker to write their favorite gang
affiliation on the store's wall.
The parlor even put up their own MySpace page with a slogan, "You think it, we
ink it."
The operation lasted for eighteen months before it was terminated last week. The
officers said their goal was to stop the violence in their county and this operation
was one big step in that direction.

Sharpton Prepares Howard Students for Jena Part 2


By Jada Smith
Black College Wire


Howard University's
Andrew Rankin
Memorial Chapel was
filled with proactive
Howard students and con-
cerned community mem-
bers alike chanting "No
justice, no peace!"
The Howard
University chapter of the
NAACP and the Xi chap-
ter of Kappa Alpha Psi
Fraternity Inc. hosted a
pre-rally Nov. 13 for a
nationwide protest set to
take place three days later
at the National Mall in
downtown Washington,
D.C.
The National March
on Washington for
Justice: Jena part 2, will


be held at the U.S.
Department of Justice in
an effort to convey out-
rage to the country's jus-
tice system, which has"
recently failed many
African-American vic-
tims of hate crimes.
According to the
communications commit-
tee for the march, the aim
is to duplicate the protests
in Jena, La. and express
intolerance for the recent
hate crimes happening
across the country.
Social activist and
community leader Rev. Al
Sharpton presented the
keynote address at the
pre-rally, emphasizing
the importance of the
black community getting
involved in the current
state of the country's jus-


twice system and challeng-
ing the audience to under-
stand that injustice affects
them. too.
"The purpose of a
march is not to solve a
problem." Sharpton said.
"The purpose of a march
is to expose a problem. It
is very important to
understand that if you're
not marching for
[Mychal] Bell or Johnson,
then march for you. You
have to ask yourself,
'what am I doing to make
a difference in this coun-
try?'"
The case of Megan
Williams, a black woman
in West Virginia who was
tortured by a crew of
white men and women,
and the case of Mychal
Bell and the Jena Six will
be the main focus in
Friday's march.
Slaarpton pointed out
how different groups in
America often fight for
themselves and their
rights, but blacks often
tend to retreat. from
action.
"Why aren't we deal-
ing with our problems?


What Are the Benefits of Unpaid Internships?


Everybody in America is
marching." Sharpton said.
"The gays and lesbians
are marching, the screen
writers are marching, the
Broadway actors are
marching. So \vhy aren't
\ve?"
During the rally on
Nov. 16. the protesters
will march around the
Department of Justice
building seven times to
symbolically represent
the biblical story of
Joshua and the Battle of
Jericho, in which God's
chosen people marched
around the city of Jericho
seven times for seven
days and the walls of their
oppressors came tum-
bling down.
Dr. Gregory Carr, an
African-American studies
professor at Howard
University, spoke about
the coming victory for
African Americans in the
United States.
"The Justice
Department is a joke, a
big joke," Carr said. "But
our concern is not with
that. Our concern is to
speak truth to power. We


are going to \win this
struggle. victoryy is emi-
nent. whether it's in 1,500
years or 15 minutes, we
will w-in.'
Joshua Seavoe.
Student Bar Association
president of the Howard
University Law School,
said that Sharpton's
speech helped to ignite a
fire needed on this cam-
pus to impact change.
"I think he made a
good argument for why in
this day and age we still
need to be concerned,
involved, outraged and
outspoken about
instances of injustice
across the country,"
Seavoe said.
Despite the thousands
expected to attend the
rally, Sharpton believes
that students like those at
Howard will be the
change the world needs to
see.
"Students like you
will make the difference,"
he said. "It's people in
your age group are the
one's that are suffering,
and you are the ones that
are going to be affected."

An internship is an
employment situation in
which a student works
(often for free) in order to
gain hands-on experience.
Internships offer valuable
work experience, help you
develop marketable skills
and beef up your resume.
Best of all, they can help
you land a job after col-
lege.
Here are a number of
things internships help you
do:
Get Your Foot in the


Door
For the most competi-
tive careers, like journal-
ism or theater, internships
Share essential. In a crowded
job market, an internship
provides:
Experience. Studying a
major is one thing; apply-
ing that knowledge to "real
world" situations is entire-
ly another. In an internship,
you learn to back up your
smarts with action.
Contacts. Working with
professionals, you tap into
a network that can 'offer
references, advice and


information about new job
opportunities.
A future job. Many
companies use their intern-
ship programs to bolster
their recruitment efforts.
Working with interns gives
them the chance to try out
motivated, ambitious stu-
dents before employing
them. If the intern makes
the grade, the company
may make a permanent job
offer.
Develop New Skills
Internships can also
help you diversify your
background and experi-


ence. While it's good to
have an area of strength a
focus for your career -
more diverse skills in a
variety of fields can make
you more marketable to a
potential employee.
This type of internship
is especially important for
liberal arts majors. Adding
some practical job skills to
your academic expertise
makes you a much better
candidate for any job.
Do Some Comparison
Shopping
Use an internship to
sample various fields


before choosing your
major. You may not need
specialized skills to do this
sort of internship; many
organizations rely on
interns for projects that
require only general skills
and a good work ethic.

Grand Opening of One Church, One Child


Office In Jax


I)~


JACKSONVILLE-
The urgent need to increase
adoptions in Jacksonville
has led to the grand opening
of a new office on
Jacksonville's Northside that
will promote adoptions. One
Church, One Child is one of
the leading agencies in
Florida and around the coun-
try in recruiting parents to
adopt children. Although the
Florida Department of
Children and Families and
its community-based care
partners have produced dra-
matic increases in the num-
ber of children adopted in
the Jacksonville area, more
than 400 children are now
eligible for adoption:
"This is a historic day
for Jacksonville, Florida,"
said Elder Dwight Brisbane
of the Higher Ground
Church of God in Christ,
where One Church, One
Child's Jacksonville office
will be located. Several
local and state dignitaries,
including Department of
Children and Families
Assistant Secretary George
Sheldon and Florida State
Senator Tony Hill, came to
the opening of the new
o f f i c e
Additionally, several chil-


dren who are waiting to be
adopted were on hand for the
event.
"This ribbon cutting is
more than just the opening
of an office, it's the combin-
ing of churches with local
and state forces, including
the Department of Children
and Families, to help
Florida's children," said Dr.
Arie Sailor, executive direc-
tor of One Church, One
Child of Florida.
According to One
Church, One Child, African-
American children represent
a disproportionate 46 per-
cent of children in need of
permanent homes in Florida.
One Church, One Child will'
focus their efforts on finding
adoptive families from
African-American congrega-
tions in Jacksonville and the
surrounding area.
"There is an urgency to
increase adoptions, especial-
ly in the African American
community," said Senator
Hill. "We need to eradicate
this problem of teenagers
staying in the foster care sys-
tem until they age out of
care. We're going to do this
throughout the state."
The urgent need to
increase adoptions is shown

The ribbon is cut to officially open One Church, One Child of
Florida's new Jacksonville office. Judge David Gooding, Judge
Waddell Wallace, Jim Adams of Family Support Services, Nancy
Dreicer and George Sheldon of the Florida Department of
Children and Families, Senator Tony Hill, Rev. Bevery Lane,
Rev. Al Williams from One Church, One Child, Bishop Rushie
Dixon, Elder Dwight Brisbane of the Higher Ground Church of
God In Christ, and Arie Sailor of One Church, One Child.


by several statistics:
Teenagers who are not
adopted have higher rates of
homelessness, are more like-
ly to be involved in crime,
more likely to live in pover-
ty, more likely to require
public assistance and less
likely to maintain stable
employment, compared to
the general population,.
Additionally, about one-
quarter of the 500,000 chil-
dren in foster care in the
U.S. will never be adopted
before they turn 18.
"If we don't do some-
thing to help these children
get adopted now, we'll have


to take care of them for the
rest of their lives," said Elder
Dwight Brisbane of the'
Higher Ground of God in
Christ. "The children wait-
ing to be adopted didn't do
anything wrong. They just
did not have the nurturing
that they needed," said
Bishop Rushie L. Dixon.
"We have a sense of
urgency about increasing
adoptions," said Nancy
Dreicer, Northeast Region
Director of the Florida
Department of Children
and Families. "If I could
adopt 20 of these children,
I would." (ADOPTION

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column Known Jor Uts
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!

Dear Deanna!
I'm a single parent with a son who's a walking time bomb and I am a
nervous wreck. He's mad at the world and he's content only when he
plays video games. We're the only two people in the house and I tiptoe,
whisper and keep quiet so I can keep the peace. He'll be in high school
soon and I worry about how he'll deal with other teens. He gets upset
when he doesn't get his way and he's rude. How can I get him ready so he can adjust for this new
phase in his life?
Worried Mother (Denver, CO)

Dear Mother:
Instead of complaining you need to find his father or a male figure so that he can come from under
your weak parenting skills. You should be embarrassed that a child rules your household. Between
the video games, no daddy and you being a pushover, your son had no choice but to be a mess. Your
solution can begin by obtaining some joint counseling, interaction with family and friends and help
your son get new hobbies other than video games..
**** ***** *******

Dear Deanna!
My boyfriend annoys me by checking out other women in my presence. He knows I'm offended
about the comments he makes about other women and I've asked him to stop. When I bring it to his
attention, he gets upset and accuses me of being insecure and jealous. I don't find this funny and I
feel as if I'm being disrespected. I've tried to talk to him but it causes an argument. What do I do?
Disrespected (On-Line Reader)

Dear Disrespected:
You need to be firm and make it clear to your boyfriend that you will not tolerate his behavior and if
he continues, the relationship is over. He is very immature and if he wants to be with you and takes
your relationship seriously, this will wake him up. If not, then he needs to find another girlfriend,
grow up or choose to be alone with his visual fantasies.


Dear Deanna!
My husband cheated and had a baby with another woman during our marriage. I can't do anything
about it now because the child is 10 years old. I feel betrayed because he kept this secret and has been
paying child support. It's time for me to meet my stepdaughter and I'm scared because I feel a lot of
hatred. I can't have children and this whole thing feels like a nightmare slapping me in the face. Can
you give me some tips on being friendly to this child?
Francine (Toledo, OH)

Dear Francine:
The first step to heal in this situation begins with your husband. He owes you some answers
before bringing his daughter into your life and household. He needs to explain why and when
he cheated and what was going on in your marriage. You're entitled to a summary of the past
10 years, and some facts about the childs mother. Once you've decided to forgive him for his
actions and feel at ease with this situation, you'll be able to deal with this child.

(ADOPTION continued
from Bl) The Department of
Children and Families and
its community-based care
partners offer numerous ben-
efits to encourage people to
consider adopting children.
Monthly payments are avail-
able for parents who adopt
through the state and its part-
ners, with payments as high
as $364 a month when
teenagers aged 13 and older
are adopted.
Additionally, children
adopted through the state
and its partners are eligible
to receive up to four years of
college tuition at Florida uni-
versities, colleges and voca-
tional training schools.
All children adopted
through the state and its part-
ners are covered under
Medicaid.
The head of One


Church, One Child's
Jacksonville office says he'll
be seeking the help of the
community, ,-:especially
churches, in encouraging
people to consider adoption.
"I'm looking forward to
meeting with pastors in all
local churches, no matter
what denomination, and
seeking their support," said
Reverend Al Williams, dis-
trict coordinator for One
Church, One Child. "We
believe churches can play a
major role in promoting
adoptions. Statistics show
that African-American chil-
dren stay in foster care
longer than any other chil-
dren. We want to get these
children out of the foster
care system and into
homes."
"It can't just be govern-
ment dealing with this issue,


the community has to step up
too," said Senator Hill.
"This is a community
known for its tremendous
success in finding loving,
safe and permanent homes
for our children," said
Florida Department of
Children and Families
Assistant Secretary George
Sheldon. "I commend One
Church, One Child for their
dedication."

HOROSCOPE

ARIES
March 21st thru April 19th


Monday and Tuesday are all about your fami-
ly. Whatever you wanted to get to at the begin-
ning of the week, if it isn't related to family,
forget about it. (Although you might get some
chores done around the house.) Wednesday
and Thursday, try as you might to at last get
some work done, you're sidetracked by your
love life. (But what a wonderful thing to be
sidetracked by, right?) The advantage of being
distracted by your love life is that it fills you
with tons of energy, which will be useful
Friday, Saturday and Sunday -- which is,
strangely enough, when you finally get some
work done.

TAURUS
April 20th thru nMay 20th
Monday and Tuesday you're speaking your
mind -- and getting a great response. People
light up when you say something they aren't
expecting. They realize they're in the middle
of an actual conversation. It's startling. You
surprise people in small ways like this all
week. Remember, it takes confidence to really
talk with people. However, a little too much
confidence sometimes looks like pomposity --
watch for that Wednesday and Thursday.
Friday through Sunday is everything you
could hope for in a weekend. It's an array of
colors and lights and love.


GEMINI
S May 21st thru June 21st

Moodiness is a dominant theme Monday and
Tuesday -- you're moody and so are the people
around you. There's a sense that there isn't
enough good stuff to go around, and people are
fighting over what's left. But none of this is
real. It's a perception thing. Wednesday and
Thursday you more or less see the light: New
ideas come to you, you spark a few debates
and you make headway on a big project. (And
all of those moody people from Monday and
Tuesday? Ha! Look at you now!) Friday
through Sunday you have about a billion
things to get done. Chop, chop!

J- CANCER
-. June 22nd thru July 22nd
Someone asks you what you want on Monday
or Tuesday, and almost without your knowing
it, you tell them everything. Hopes and dreams
-- and all that. Somehow in the telling, all the
things that once seemed so far away from you
seem, well, closer than ever. Achievable, even.
Wednesday -and Thursday, you continue to
think about the future this way, your perfect
future. You carry the thought with you like a
possession. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are
more rooted in the here and now. They are
great days in a minor chord.


f LEO
S i j July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
You're sensitive on Monday and Tuesday, a lot
more sensitive than usual. So when someone
tells you something and you almost physically
react -- well, that's what's up. That said, no one
else can tell. Ypu have such command, such a
polished way with things, that people register
absolutely no change in your disposition.
Wednesday and Thursday, this unbelievable
finesse is the subject of much discussion
among others. Apparently you have fans. How
flattering! Friday through Sunday, you keep to
yourself a bit more than usual, but you have a
lot of gears turning. Great things are coming.


SVIRGO

Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
You derive your energy from other people
Monday and Tuesday. Someone walks into a
room -- for what it's worth, women figure
prominently in the stars -- and something
about your conversational chemistry wakes
you up. Wednesday and Thursday, you need to
be as woken up as possible. Madness is tran-
spiring and you'll need to be flexible to survive
it. (And avoid the martyr thing, too: When you
make it out unscathed, don't brag about .your
valor.) But all this is just the preamble to
Friday; Saturday and Sunday. Great days? Yes.
You're beaming.
4 A.


I I 'I


LIBRA
Sept 23rd thru Oct


22nd


You would love to keep your head down and
focus on Monday and Tuesday, but you have
all these feelings swimming around in you, all
these distractions. Find something small and
beautiful to focus on. If you're at work, go buy
a little plant and put it on your desk. Somehow
this sort of thing works. Wednesday and
Thursday, what works is seeing good friends,
people who inspire you to conversational
greatness and who can see that there's some-
thing you want to talk about. They convince
you to open up. Friday, Saturday and Sunday,
you're the perceptive one, getting others to talk


SCORPIO
Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
As much as you'd like to be in control, you're
not controlling the reins on Monday and
Tuesday. So you might as well put your feet up
and enjoy the ride. Right? And while you're at
it, let someone else choose where to eat lunch.
Wednesday and Thursday, you almost have the
urge to put your foot down and demand that
something go the way you want it to --you
may even feel like standing up to your boss.
But, really, don't. That would just come across
as all ego. And remember how comfortable it
is with your feet up? Friday, Saturday and
Sunday are great days .in a subtle way. Your
friends are excellent.

A/ SAGITTARIUS
i / 1
I / Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
It's okay that you're not on the same page as
everyone else on Monday and Tuesday. Follow
where your own mood takes you and you'll
stumble onto something wonderful, some idea
that no one else could think of. Wednesday and
Thursday, you stumble onto more wonderful
things, although these things are actually
things -- for example, upgraded seats on an air-
plane or a 20-dollar bill you find on the
ground. Yay! You have some luck at this time.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you have the
urge to speed ahead. But what's the hurry?
Relax. Enjoy the walk.

CAPRICORN
Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th

Take things one at a time on Monday and
Tuesday. Change is in the air, and you're not
opposed to change -- sometimes you really like
the idea, actually. But it's a process. Plus, it's way
more fun to experience life as it unfolds. That
said, what unfolds on Wednesday and Thursday is
hardly fun. File it under 'challenging.'
(Sometimes challenges are fun, but not this time.)
The real fun happens on Friday. And also
Saturday. Plus, Sunday. It's a great weekend: You
get a bunch done, you catch up with someone
long-distance and you develop a new obsession (a
good one).


AQUARIUS
Jan 20th thru Feb 18th

Monday and Tuesday are challenging, no
doubt about it. But try not to let the challenges
bring you down. Challenges are fun! Sure,
when it's real life and not a game, feelings get
added to the mix, but that just makes things
more interesting. Wednesday and Thursday,
you feel strongly about something, and some-
one else strongly disagrees. What ends up hap-
pening is the joint discovery of a brilliant mid-
dle ground, something neither of you would
have found if not for the other. This accom-
plishment makes you long (this weekend) for
another challenge.


PISCES
Feb 19th thru March 20th
Monday and Tuesday are awesome. Romance
is in the air, and so is a little music. Is that in
your head? Is that piped in from somewhere?
Whatever the case, you feel like you're in a
movie about someone who's happy. You're
light on your feet. Wednesday and Thursday,
you're brought back to the real world by
someone who insists on waving their hand in
front of your face. You're such a romantic,
imagining your life with/you-know-who
while there's work to b'e done. Friday,
Saturday and Sunday, relationships -- roman-
tic and platonic -- are in the-stars. Help a pal


THE DOPE MAN HIT HIM AND HE WANTS JUSTICE
(He was the Suspect, but became one of the victims) -
An officer was dispatched to the 1400 block of Kings Rd.
regarding a male who was the victim of a battery. Upon his
arrival, he was met by Mr. JM (suspect). Mr. JM was bleeding
from his upper lip and advised the dope man hit him in the
mouth and he wanted something done about it. Mr. JM refused



medical attention. The officer con-
ducted an investigation at the 1400 block of Grothe St.
Ms. MF (victim) advised the suspect got into a fight with
a local dope dealer and was hit in the mouth. The suspect
S fled the area and later came back to confront the dope
dealer. The victim advised she was walking behind the
suspect attempting to talk to him and prevent him from
going back and confronting the drug dealer. The suspect
obtained a beer bottle and broke it along .the side of the
roadway. The suspect then walked up to the victim
attempting to cut her with the broken beer bottle. The wit-


ness (dope man) got between the suspect and victim
and punched the suspect in his face with his fist. The
suspect fled the area on foot and ran to the 1400 block
of Kings Rd, where he called the police.

YOU CAN SEARCH, BUT HE'S NOT HERE -
Two officers were dispatched to the 5700 block of
Brait Ave. in reference to locating and arresting defen-
dant Mr. B. Upon arrival, Witness #1, Ms. S, told the
officers that the defendant wasn't there and allowed
them to come inside and look around. While walking

S end on the hallway. They asked Ms. S again if anyone
else was in the home, and she said no. She'then
Opened her bedroom door and Mr. B (the defendant)
S\ was standing in the middle of the room in the dark.
SOnce they took him into custody and turned the bed-
S- .. room light on, the officers observed in plain view on
the dresser Marijuana and crack cocaine. Ms. S said
she had no idea the drugs were on the dresser, that
they belongs to Mr. B. A box of 9mm live rounds was
discovered and the 9mm gun was in the car. Mr. B was booked into the PTDF.

Rapper 'Lil' Romeo' Signs with USC

LOS ANGELES (No\. 19) Who!
\What! Master P's son, actor/rapper
Lil' Romeo, headed for Southern
California to plans basketball?
The teenage hip-hop performer and a,
DeNlar DeRozan. another local standout.
signed national letters of intent to attend
liSC on Nlondav a[ a news conference ;..."'
held at a posh hotel near Be\erl\ Hills. Pe. :e.
Lil' Romeo averaged 13.9 points and
5.6 assists last season for Beverly Hills High.
USC confirmed the signing, and announced that Donte Smith, a 5-foot-11
guard who averaged 21.7 points at Mt. San Antonio College last season, had also
signed.
Lil' Romeo, whose full name is Percy Romeo Miller, is currently a senior guard
at Beverly Hills High who averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists last season. His
father, hip-hop mogul Master P, had tryouts with two NBA teams in the 1990s.
"This is the most important thing I've had to do and hopefully it sends a mes-
sage to kids across the country that education is more important than money," Miller
said at the news conference. "Getting a.college scholarship is more important than
winning an American Music Award, and I plan to be the best student-athlete I can
be at USC."
One recruiting service ranks Miller, a 6-0, 170-pounder, among the top 15 prep
point guards in the country.
DeRozan, a 6-7, 200-pounder, averaged 22.3 points as a junior at Compton High
last season and is rated as one of the best shooting guards in the nation.
"To come from Compton and to be able to get an athletic scholarship at a major
university like USC is the greatest feeling in the world," DeRozan said. "This is a
place where I am able to work hard and reach my dreams and will hopefully take
this to the pros after college."
