Media Images Still Not Liked by Blacks
"Blacks ae not satisfied with how they are portrayed by the media. Only 29 percent agree that
the mainstream media portray Blacks in a positive light compared to 50 percent who do not
relate to the way Blacks are portrayed on most Black TV shows. Two-thirds believe there should
be morp television shows that focus on Blacks. Forty percent think Black TV is reinforcing a
negative stereotype of Blacks."
The information above is from a survey of 3,400 African Americans between 13 and 74, taken
by Yankelovich consumer market research firm for Radio One Inc.
The study also shows that 70 percent of African Americans have a plan for their future and that
54 percent were optimistic about that future. It also states that 60 percent believe 'things are get-
ting better for me."
Scientists Say Watermelon
Yields Viagra-like Effects
Scientists say that men may want to enjoy a larger
slice of water melon on the Fourth of July since it has
effects similar to Viagra.
According to reports, watermelons contain an ingredi-
ent called citrulline that can trigger production of a
-compound that helps relax the body's blood vessels,
similar to when a man takes Viagra. Of course, there
are some problems such as more frequent runs to the
bathroom and the amount of sugar that would spill into
the bloodstream since one would need to eat about six
cups of watermelon to eat enough. More research is

Over a 48-hour peri-

were shot in New York
City, six fatally. A
gunman opened fire
on a crowd in a shop-

and wounded five. peo-

killed while leaving a
party in Manhattan. A
13-year-old boy and a
15-year-old girl were
wounded in Harlem.
This spring frenzy
of gun violence has
not been limited to
New York. Other
cities have experi-
enced a similar rash of
shootings.' In one
weekend in June, 14
people were shot to
death in Los Angeles
County. The police
attributed the violence
to gang activity.
During the early

the last weekend in
May, seven people
were killed and three
were wounded in the
District. of Columbia
in just nine hours. In a
city where homicides
had been on the
decline in recent
years,' the number of
D.C. murders sur-
passed the previous
year's mark for May. A
rash of shootings ear-
lier this year caused
the District's police
chief to call .a virtual

alert to put as many
officers on street duty
as possible as a deter-
rent to more gun vio-
whether the shootings
were motivated by a
gang rivalry, revenge
or an unwelcome

rampant gun violence
plaguing our nation
must stop. To do

scourge, we have to
address its causes.

But there are things
we can do. Those who
own guns should
remove them from
their homes so they
are out of the reach of
children and irrespon-
sible adults. We don't

like the one on June 9
when a 4-year-old girl
in Columbia, South
Carolina, pulled a gun
from her. grandmoth-
er's handbag and shot
herself in the chest.
We must urge
Congress to impose
common sense restric-
tions on the purchase
and availability of
firearms. Forty per-
cent of all guns in the
United States are pur-
chased without a back-
ground check, includ-
ing those bought at
gun ,shows. Congress
must enact legislation
that closes the gun
show loophole by
background checks on
those who purchase
guns from unlicensed

self-confidence and a

I've mentioned before,
we need to bring back
"Cradle Rolls" 'when a

in our church commu-
nity was immediately
placed on this special
.list, and members of
the congregation were
responsible for fol-
lowing these children
until they reached the
"age of accountabili-
ty." We need to extend
the Cradle Roll to all
our communities. And
we need to enact com-
mon sense gun control
The rise of gun vio-

ties is serious and dan-
gerous, but we don't
have to stand by as
mere witnesses. We
can do something
about it. We must take
action now to curb the

pose to our nation.
Too much is at stake.

NEIGHBORHOOD HEALTH OUTREACH COOP-
ERATIVE -Partners from the Pine Forest community
and the University of North Florida School of Nursing
invite you to participate in a Neighborhood Health
Outreach Cooperative designed to increase access to
care for local residents and thereby decrease health dis-
parities. Pine Forest is a very close-knit neighborhood
where the majority of the residents are at high risk for
heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic dis-
eases and many have no health insurance or are underin-
sured. A task force of local leaders and faculty from the
UNF School of Nursing studied the issue, of access to
care and explored strategies that have the potential to be
successful in this neighborhood. The concept of a
Neighborhood Health Outreach Cooperative emerged
from this effort. The initial plan is to bring a variety of
services together at the Henry T. Jones Community
Center for 4-6 hours bimonthly to provide health risk
assessment, information and referral services, and fami-
ly life education. In order to develop a sustainable pro-
gram, we need to recruit local services interested in par-
ticipating as we develop this model. We hope that you
will be interested in joining us as we pilot this project
over the next year. The first opening will be on July
10th from 4 8 p.m. For more information, contact Dr.
Connie Roush, PhD, RN at 904-652-7607 or Carrie

Striving To Make A Difference!
..._.____C_(___L6.___-_-._m____ .: 'Ai"&1'6I-
by May E. Ford,
Layout Editor/The Florida Star
May "Ebony" Ford, one of The Florida Star.'s own, cruised
the caribbean recently and thought she would share a little of
it with you.
In May of this year I vacationed, along with my brother
Rasco Green, my dear friend from Shreveport, Louisiana
Betty Pratt and her son Johnny Bernard Pratt. We chose the
Western Caribbean Cruise on The Fun Ship of Carnival
We left Galveston, Texas on a Sunday afternoon. While at
sea, we had an agenda that kept us busy enough we did not
have time to think about home. There were dancing, broad-
way shows, gambling, shopping, and much, much more on
the ship itself, not counting the many pictures that were taken
by professional photographers throughout the ship daily.
After about two and one half days at sea, we finally land-
ed in Montego Bay, Jamaica, where we enjoyed one full day
of fun...shopping, shopping and more shopping, site seeing
and water falls.
The next stop was the Grand Cayman Islands where there
were white sandy beaches and beautiful clean blue waters that
we swam and waded in until it was almost time to board ship
again, but not.until we tasted the scrumptious rum cake that
the Cayman Islands are known for and starring at the iguanas
that rome the land like cats and dogs here in the states. The

~ SHOCK ~
DEFINITION: When blood is not circulating throughout the
human body as it should, shock occurs. Injuries such as bums,
wounds, or fractures can bring about shock since shock usually accompanies serious bleeding
and extensive damage to tissues and bones.
SIGNS: Signs of shock are easily observed. The person's skin is pale and moist. Beads of
perspiration may be seen on the forehead, palms, and lips. He may complain of nausea or may
vomit. His pulse is fast and may be impossible to feel. He may breathe faster than he usually
FAINTING: The first-aider should know that there are differences between shock and
fainting. Many persons faint from minor injuries. A person who has fainted is pale and has a
SHOCK VICTIM: The shock victim should be kept lying down. If he has difficulty in
breathing, his hqad and chest should be elevated. If he has severe loss of blood, that part of the
victim's body in the severe bleeding should be raised. Elevation should not be done if there is
a head injury, if there is breathing difficulty which increases by raising the head, or if pain
occurs with elevation of that part of the body.
A person in shock should retain his body heat, so a blanket should be placed under him if
he is lying on the ground or floor. He should be covered sparingly.
If medical care will be available within a half hour or less, the shock victim should not be
given any, fluids. If medical care is delayed or unavailable, the first-aider can give small
amounts of fluids to the conscious shock victim at about fifteen-minute intervals.
A good fluid to give is water to which is added one-half level teaspoon of table salt and one-
half level teaspoon of baking soda per quart of water. The first-aider must carefully observe the
person while he is drinking a fluid to make sure that he does not vomit.
Dr. Watkidns can be heard live Sundays at 7:05 pm EST on www.KCOHRadio.com. He is

SHH! Did You Hear About?...
IT'S NOT MINE I'VE CHANGED MY
WAYS An officer conducted a traffic stop on a
vehicle due to no tag displayed on the rear of the
vehicle. Upon contact with the driver (witness),
he asked him where the tag was that belonged to
the vehicle. The witness stated that he should be
getting the tag soon. The officer asked him for
his drivers license and learned that the witness
was operating a motor vehicle on a learner's
license. He asked the witness if there were any
drugs or weapons inside the vehicle and he said
"no, you can search the car." The officer had the
passenger (suspect) get out of the vehicle and
asked her if there were any drugs or weapons in the vehicle and she said, "no." The
suspect stated that she has not smoked any crack in about three weeks. The officer
found crack cocaine under the front passenger seat where the suspect was sitting. He
asked the suspect if she knew of the crack cocaine in the vehicle and she said, "no,
I have changed my ways." The officer detained the suspect and placed her in the rear
of his patrol vehicle. He asked the witness if he knew of the crack cocaine and he
stated that he knows that the suspect smokes crack on occasion. The witness was
issued a citation for operating a motor vehicle on a learners license.
THEY WERE PREPARED FOR THE JOB -While on patrol, an officer observed
two suspicious persons behind a building in the 300 block of W. State St. As he go
closer, he observed two black males moving the copper coils from the air condition-
ing unit from behind the building. He maneu-
vered his patrol car into the rear parking lot.
As he got out of the vehicle, suspect 2, (a
black male about 25-35 years of age fled
towards the eastside of the building then in an
unknown direction. He detained suspect 1,
who was identified as Mr. HRH. The officer
also observed two blue bicycles with milk
crates attached to the front. The crates had
various tools and equipment. He also
observed a shopping cart with a canvass tool
bag full of various tools. He found one open
end wrench, two sockets and a ratchet set and
one flat tip screw driver in suspect l1's right
front pants pocket. Earlier on the officer's
shift, a burglary to a residence was reported that two black men on blue bicycles was
stealing copper from an air condition unit matching these two suspects. The suspect
was transported to the Burglary division and interviewed. Case cleared by arrest.
I WONDER WHY -An officer was dispatched to the 5600 block of Collins Rd., in
reference to a battery in progress complaint. Upon his arrival he met with the vic-
tim, Ms. W. She advised the suspect, who is the father of three of her children, came
over tpday and began banging on her front door. When she knew it was the suspect
banging on the door she opened it and he walked into the apartment. She said he did
not say anything to her at first, but kept pacing the apartment and then put her in a
bear hug. She kept asking him what was wrong with him and he would not answer
her. The suspect accused the victim of her not wanting to be with him. He swung
at her missing her, as she went to grab the telephone he swung at her hitting her on
the right side of her face. The suspect
fled the scene when the victim had .a
neighbor call the police because the
suspect took the cordless phone. The
officer observed no physical injury to
the victim. It should be noted that the \/
victim is five months pregnant and f
refused rescue. The victim advised she
has a permanent injunction for protec- j
tion against the suspect, which was
verified through NCIC. the victim also
stated that the children were in the
room when the incident took place.' '
One of the children stated that the suis-
pect came over and he was mad. He
heard his mother ask the suspect what
was wrong. He heard his mother and the, suspect get into a verbal dispute and then
saw him hit his mother. The suspect was located hiding on a stairwell in an adjacent
building. Post Miranda the suspect advised the victim called him to stop by, so he
did. When he arrived, she was irate so he left. The suspect was arrest and transport-
ed to the PTDF.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR ANIMALS -An officer was dispatched to the 1400 block
of Helena St., in reference to assisting animal control. Upon his arrival, he met with
the complainants, MG and JM. They are both animal control officers with the city.
JM stated that he responded to the resident in reference to animal complaint. Once
at the scene he observed two dogs on the property, one large and one small. Both
dogs were thin. The larger dog was very
thin. He said the larger dog could bare-
ly stand when he approached it. While
looking at the dogs,, the suspect exited
the residence. The officer asked him
who the dogs belong to. At first he said
he didn't know, then owned up to being
the owner of the larger dog. He said he
visited his grandmother for a few days
because she was ill and just plain forgot
about the dogs. He stated that he was
going to feed the dogs in the future. He
was arrested and transported to the

Small tasks, little issues and those who
can't see the big picture just aren't as
much of a problemif you're feeling
healthy and centered at the beginning of
the week. Get some exercise, get ground-
ed, laugh it off and move on! The stars
send more expansive, exciting energy
your way on Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday. Got an idea about work or
romance? Now's the time to get it going!
But don't get too carried away; what you
think you want on Friday and Saturday
could be a passing fancy. Sunday's good
for fully feeling it out.
June 22nd July 22nd
At the beginning of this week, you've
got your amazing emotional intelli-
gence plus the ability to see patterns
and connections you may have missed
before. How will you use your full-
spectrum smarts at work and in your
love life? Then, on Wednesday, don't
ignore something hoping it'll just go
away. Addressing an issue or a differ-
ence of opinion may be stressful, but
letting it slide will only make matters
stickier. On Friday and over the week-
end, let your actions and words speak
for your heart. When you're true to
yourself, the rest falls into place.
Sept 23rd Oct 22nd
On Monday, the more you listen, the
more you'll understand; especially
when it comes to relationships. Don't
forget to listen to your own heart, too!
Then, if you've been feeling off-kilter,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
offer a, more self-confident, positive
frame of mind. Once you're feeling on
top of your game, all the rest just falls
into place! Starting Friday, the change
you're contemplating is definitely
worth consideration, but you may
want to wait until Sunday to bounce it
of a certain someone. Ask them to help
you explore it, and you might get a
better assistant than you expected!
Dec 22nd Jan 19th
~omeOoOy or something tar away St may seem sate so assume you get is You'll be much better able to deal witls
Somebody or sometmng tar away
comes into play on Monday or
Tuesday, so be sure you're not confin-
ing your attention or vision to what's
right in front of your nose. Come
Wednesday, you'll probably be focus-
ing on work, but don't expect any mir-
acles there. In fact, lead your life in
balance so the other things in your life
can reinvigorate and refresh you. Get
outside instead of in; get in front of art
or music instead of the TV. On Friday
and over the weekend, believe in
yourself and know why you're doing
what you do. Power comes from the
heart, now more than ever.
-1Apr 20th May 20th
Your powers of persuasion are pretty dam
compelling on Monday and Tuesday! Get
'em on your side at work and in your
personal life. Really, why would they want
to be anywhere else? Then your challenge
over the next several days will be to find
the middle ground. Don't overindulge in
social activities, but don't tether yourself to
a desk, either! Keep things nice and even;
you'll want to be in a pulled-together emo-
tional state for some interesting (read:
challenging, maybe stormy or possibly
great) interpersonal stuff coming on
Friday and over the weekend.
July 23rd -Aug 22nd
They say that a little time spent alone
each day is time well spent, and it will
be especially true on Monday. You
might even find that with a quiet mind,
a certain decision practically makes
itself -- and Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday are perfect for taking action,
whether on practical work matters or
in the relationship sphere. The stars
smile on your willingness to share
what you're thinking and embrace
change! And be inquisitive on Friday
and over the weekend. A better under-
standing is within reach -- and on
Sunday, love's in the air!
IJ H SCORPIO
SOct 23rd Nov 21st
As the week gets going, you've got perfec-
tionist tendencies that are, well, perfect for
work and getting things in order. When it
comes to people, though, you've got to give
them at least a little leeway. Around
Wednesday, a conflict or opposition oi
some sort is likely to arise, and you'll be
ready to think of all sorts of proactive steps
to take. But what about a simpler way.
What would happen if you just gave in, or
cheerfully compromised? Starting Friday.
you'll be extra smart, super sexy and all
around awesome. Have a great weekend!
ii |Jan 20th Feb 18th
it may seem sale to assume you get it
at the beginning of the week, but
would it really hurt to ask? (Answer:
No, in fact it could really,' really help.)
Around Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday, others will be coming to
you for clarity. Be ready and willing to
help, because you're definitely able.
Then you're liable to be a little more
sensitive than usual on Friday and
Saturday, so surround yourself with
positive people who love you for who
you are. Plan an activity that gives you
joy, and take notice of the good in life.
By Sunday, you'll be in a great groove.
May 21st- June 21st
It may seem like there's a bit of a gulf
between you and what you're trying to do
(or maybe between you and a certain some-
one) as the week begins, but its not so hard
to bridge. Hint Less is very likely more
right now. Don't overcomplicate. And don't
fret the stars are ready to send on over-
abundance of riches your way around
Wednesday, but only ifyou're willing to get
involved instead of getting overwhelmed.
So much to do, so little time! Go on and
bum the candle at both ends a bit you can
play catch-up when mellower energy
arrives on Friday and over the weekend.
Aug 23rd Sept 22nd
Make it look easy! With the stars on
your side as the week gets going, your
work and your personal life are chock-
full ofpossibilities -- all you've got to do
is reach out. But around Wednesday,
you're gonna need. a sounding board.
Think of the person whose values you
respect most, then get in touch and talk
it through. And if you find yourself feel-
ing impatient on Friday or over the
weekend, take it as a sign to stop,
breathe and assess (or reassess, as the
case may be). Focus on what you can
learn in the here and now instead of
wishing you were someplace else.
Nov 22nd Dec 21st
Issuing an ultimatum might be tempting
on Monday, butimake sure ifs really a
your-way-or-no-way situation, because the
answer may be no way. Ifyou can possibly
wait on it, the stars will offer a different
perspective over the next few days, not to
mention a new way to express yourselfthat
will open possibilities instead of possibly
closing doors. Frame it in terms of your
hopes instead of the problems. On Friday
and Saturday, everyone else will be ready
to party, but you'll want at least a little solo
time to read, think and just be. Sunday,
though, is a fun day plan for it!
S Feb 19th Mar 20th
You'll be much better able to deal with
life's myriad (and, in many cases,
mundane and minuscule) demands at
the beginning of the week if you're
proactive about getting centered.
Replenish your inner resources so that
when an opportunity to make life bet-
ter comes knocking on Wednesday or
Thursday, you'll be all gussied up and
waiting at the door instead of bum-
ming around in your mental PJs.
Likewise, on Friday and over the
weekend, watch for a situation where
you can assert what you believe. You'll
earn their respect -- and possibly make
a real connection.

Slavery and The Prison Industrial Complex in America:
The prison industrial complex is a self perpetuating industry based on the subjiga-
tion of an increasing segment of our communities by racial and economic scapegoat-
ing. The economic angle of this is immediate, bottom line, material gain for the corpo-
rations supporting and profiting from the prison industrial complex, which lends itself
to forms of slavery and genocide.
Slavery and the prison industrial complex can be understood only in the context of
a hundred plus years old link between crime and race and class oppression.
Immediately following the civil war, Black Codes created a list of crimes punishable
only when committed by black people. Southern states like Mississippi made it a crime
for African Americans to be unemployed or drunk, or to have run away, neglected chil-
dren, or handled money unwisely. This was the making of the prison industrial com-
plex with most of the incarcerated being black.
Religious, Political, Human, Social and Civic Movement Needed:
A human and civil rights movement, similar to the Civil Rights Movement or the
anti-lynching campaigns, to dismnantle the prison industrial complex that has captured
our nation should be at the top of a modem day movement. Why don't we connect ito
this atrocity as we have with past struggles and offer actions and moratoriums?
Modem day slavery and the conditions that keep African Americans, Hispanics and
the poor in prisons and not in schools and colleges is big business today, costing bil-
lions of dollars.yearly and must become a political, human and civil rights issue as to
The School-to-Prison Pipeline has created a flow of children from failing schools
to jails, with an alarming number of the students being from public schools and African
Americans, Hispanics and poor families. Many of these children face enormous obsta-
cles and are far more likely than other students to wind up in juvenile detention facili-
ties and eventually adult prisons.'
Seven of every 10 children in the juvenile justice system nationwide have some
kind of educational disability. The vast majority are children with Emotional
Disturbance, and from single parent homes and largely children of ex-offenders.
With tax burdens, crime, violence and other social ills escalating, we must imme-
diately charter a new course of action, by calling on political, civic and religious lead-
ers in addressing criminal injustice, racism, disparities and the growth of the prison
Recent surveys have show, criminal/juvenile justice and corrections funding has
risen but funding for education has decreased over the last decades with many lawmak-
ers supporting this effort. Something is wrong with this picture. Funding for prisons
should not be above that for education, healthcare, social security and other much need-
ed programs and infrastructures.
We must realize, the failed emphasis on tough-on-crime and the war on drugs and
call on congress to take immediate steps to address this most horrific condition.
There is no question prisons and jails are needed, but big expensive ones are not.
The real cost of the prison industrial complex is a great cost to American taxpayers,
with far too many casualties and no end in sight.

of her regime includes daily
consumption of ribose.
Bioenergy D-ribose, made by
one of Roach's corporate spon-

of adenosine triphosphate
(ATP), an essential energy
compound found in every cell
in the body. ATP is critical to
health and maintaining normal
energy-related body functions,,
and ribose is the essential com-
ponent in the making of ATP.
"I find if I do all the little
things right, the big stuff
becomes easier and the weight

things. It helps keep my energy

Sox will host the first-e'er Double DutN Classic an ewent celebrating the
S- history, and tradinon of Negro League baseball m Chicago and promoting
the next generanon of inner-city baseball players
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the first Negro League East-
A RC West All-Star Game, which was played at Old Comiskey Park in Chicago.
The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) will collaborate with the
White Sox on the event, which includes a special forum on the history of
the Negro Leagues and African-Americans in
the game of baseball.
The special forum to be held at U.S. Cellular Field's Conference & Learning Center will begin at 11:00
a.m. and feature discussion panels moderated by Michael Smith of ESPN. The panels will include: Sharon
Robinson (daughter of Jackie Robinson), Negro League historians Eddie Beford, Adrian Burgos and Larry
Lester, along with White Sox general manager Ken Williams, outfielder Jermaine Dye and first base coach
"This event, the Double Duty Classic, is about honoring the legacy of those many great players who
worked and sacrificed so that we all could enjoy this game," said Ken Williams White Sox general manager.
"By the same token, the event is about teaching that legacy to the next generation of players and ensuring they
carry-on that heritage as they develop as players and people."
The game, which will be played at U.S. Cellular Field, begins at 2:30 p.m. and will feature inner-city high
school players from across the Midwest (Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Milwaukee and St.
Louis). The White Sox Amateur City Elite (ACE) high school travel team will represent Chicago in the All-
Star showcase. The players will dress in uniforms honoring Negro Leagues' East-West All-Star teams. Each
team will carry a roster of players from both the ACE team and players from across the Midwest.
Ted "Double Duty" Radcliffe was
born on July 7, 1902 in Mobile, Ala.
and played for the Chicago American
Giants of the Negro Leagues. At the
age of 41, Radcliffe earned MVP
honors for his performance during the
1943 season with the American
Giants. Nicknamed "Double Duty" (
because he would regularly pitch the
first game of a doubleheader and
catch the second game, Radcliffe was
one of the most dynamic players in
the Negro Leagues and all of baseball.
Beginning in 2002, until the year of
his death in Chicago in 2005,
Radcliffe threw a ceremonial first .
pitch prior to a White Sox game. s

She also attributes her suc-
cess to a comprehensive sup-
port network, including her
family, coach, her faith, and a
cadre of people cheering her
on to the 2008 Olympic games.
Roach also knows how impor-
tant it is to maintain her ener-
gy. "I do whatever I can to
sustain my energy," she says.
"Since August, when I
first started using ribose, I
haven't noticed a drop in ener-

ly with the 35-45 minute lag in
between competitive lifts."
