Danielle Bisuttie Makes It Seriously Funny!


By Rych McCain/
feedbackrych@sbcglob-
al.net, Photos by Travis
Tanner and Ronnie
Butler, Jr.

Fans of the popular
top rated Nickelodeon
TV show "True Jackson
VP" have come to be
very familiar with the
character named
Amanda Cantwell. She
is True Jackson's
(played by KeKe
Palmer) nemesis on the
show. Amanda is played
by musician/song-
writer/actress Danielle
Bisuttie.
When asked to
describe the psychologi-
cal profile of her charac-
ter in terms of is the
funny lady mean or is
the mean lady funny?
Bisuttie explains, "Mean
is a relative word. I think
what drives Amanda is
this overwhelming sense
of wanting to be appreci-
ated and recognized.
She's worked very hard.
Some people live life
like opportunities are
going to come to them
easily and other people
live life like I've got to
work hard, I've got to
climb the latter, I've got
to push, push, push to
make this work. And
that's how Amandai;
approaches life from my
perspective. So when
she gets impatient, snip-
py or clipped; it's not


because 'let's see how
mean I can be to these
people to get a good
laugh,' it's just 'I don't
have time for this!"
Bisuttie was born in
Los Angeles and reared
in Simi Valley just out-
side of Los Angeles in
Ventura, County. She
began playing piano by
age five and knew then
that music and acting
was her calling. She
even declared so in
kindergarten to her close
circle of childhood
friends. Bisuttie recalls,
"A lot of people say that
(naming their calling
young). It always made
sense to me every since I
was a little kid. Music,
singing, dancing, acting,
putting on plays for the
neighborhood kids,
doing the drama at the
little Christian school I
went to; I'm a renais-
sance person in the since
that I love experiencing
life. I did sports, I was in
leadership, I was into
drama, I was writing, so
it just made sense to me.
Now math didn't make
sense. That was some-
thing I had to work at
really hard at but cre-
ative things just came
very naturally."
Bisuttie attended a
strict Christian school
which she credits to giv-
ing her a solid, moral
foundation. At twelve,
she founded and led a


band called "The Boy
Crazies" which she says
was a safe outlet in deal-
ing with the discovery of
boys at that age.
Bisuttie will get busy
writing and producing
music for her new CD
when TJVP goes on hia-
tus after taping their last
episode this week. She
describes her music as
piano driven songs
although she actually
does play acoustic guitar
as well. Danielle Bisuttie

protect the consumer from many of the surprise charges that
are now common in the industry such as over-the-limit fees
and a charge to pay the bill by telephone. Some of the changes
include a requirement that cardholders get 45-days notice
before their rates are increased. This will not become effective
until July 2010. The change will also require credit card com-

The President also joined a federal judge Wednesday to end
a racial disparity by equalizing prison sentences for dealing
and using crack versus powdered cocaine.
The goal is to eliminate the disparity between the two forms
of cocaine since it takes 100 times more powdered cocaine
than crack cocaine to trigger the same harsh mandatory mini-
mum sentences. More than 81 percent of those convicted for
crack offenses in 2007 were African-American, although only
about 25 percent of crack cocaine users are African American.

phy is just as rewarding. "Sanctified and Still Standing"
ception. This very vivid story of her life is told by Dr. T.
in such a way that only she could do. As the story begins,
cocious little girl faced with many womanly challenges,
er journey doesn't leave her scarred, but Sanctified and
book that promises to not disappoint the reader, this auto-
rs a blend of childhood memories, reflective Godly prin-
ieful outcome. Dr. Russell grew up in Callahan, Florida,
ice physician, presently serving in the U. S. Airforce at
Alabama. Makes a great topic of a book club meeting or

Ask Deanna: is an aavice column Known jur 1us
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!


Dear Deanna!
I broke up with my boyfriend for another guy and now I realize this
was a mistake. I had a good man and I should've listened to my
family and friends as they told me I should've stayed with him. I
was seeking thrills and excitement. This caused me to be abused,
cheated on and we broke up anyway. I want to get my boyfriend
back and I'm not sure what to do. I've apologized but nothing
seems to work.
Heartbroken and Torn San Diego, CA
Dear Heartbroken:
The story never changes when one thinks the grass is greener on the other side. However,
in your case, you had a crew telling you what to do but you chose not to listen. It serves
you right and your ex-boyfriend shouldn't have anything else to do with you. Your apolo-
gy is nice but look at it from his side as you expect him to return after being with another
man. Get over it, learn from your mistakes and if he comes back, fine and if not, keep it
moving.
Dear Deanna!
I'm in a relationship with a man I don't trust. I can't place my finger on what makes me
feel this way, but I feel it in my gut. I have been observing his behavior when he's on cer-
tain phone calls as well as looking at him eyeball other women in my presence. This makes
me feel very insecure because he seems insensitive. He doesn't compliment me, but
remarks on other women's appearance. Am I making too much out of this or is man really
not for me?
Janine Buffalo, NY
Dear Janine:
You're doomed if you don't have trust because this is an essential element for a healthy
relationship. If this is your boyfriend and he disrespects you in your face then obviously
he's not the man for you. However, he may need some training and you should tell him
about his behavior and how it makes you feel. If he's totally unaware of his actions then
you have a shot. If he is aware, then you're right, he's not the man for you and you should
cast your net and seek the other fish in the sea.
Dear Deanna!
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 dating someone else in the company. What
do I do?
Crying and Miserable On-Line Reader
Dear Miserable:
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 oIt early and pray for the new lady who will be his next sucker.

WHO IS THE GREATEST?
I hate to say it but LeBron James is better than
Michael Jordan and I don't care how many champi-
onship teams Michael played on.
o doubt, Michae Jordan was an awesome offen-
sive and defensive player but it seems that LeBron
matches Michael's scoring ability and overwhelms him
in other areas.
LeBron James is a triple-double machine. He can score 40 points, get fifteen
rebounds and dish out twelve assists while blocking four shots and making three
steals.
As great as MJ was, he couldn't go to sleep and dream about being a great
rebounder and assist man.
For most of his career, Michael Jordan had an all star supporting cast. The
Chicago Bulls also featured Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Horace Grant, Jim
Paxson and others.
No disrespect but LeBron's team has good players but not too many hall of
famers and all stars.
The MJ lovers will hate me I know but I'm old enough to have seen Wilt
Chamberlin, Bill Russel, Larrt Bird, Magic Johnson, Doctor J, Jabbar and others.
They passed the best player baton to Jordan now is time for LeBron or possibly
Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade to take over.
I just think LeBron is too big, too fast and can jump too high! A big man is
too slow to guard him and a shorter player can't leap nearly as high as LeBron
James.
There is one thing, however, that Michael Jordan had that James doesn't have
yet. Michael had "Jordan Rules." MJ could get referee calls that other players
couldn't get.
Perhaps Michael Jordan can un-retire again and the two can go face-to-face
in a playoff series, but I think talk about the best players in any sport regarding
any era is a never ending debate.
I know people right now that can't decide if Joe Louis and Jack Johnson were
better fighters than Muhammed Ali! (Purchase Gantt's book, "Beast Too: Dead
Man Writing" and contact Lucius at www.allworldconsultants.net)

The History and Origin of
IMemorial Day in Waterloo, New York

The story of Memorial Day begins in the summer
of 1865, when a prominent local druggist. Henry C.
Welles, mentioned to some of his friends at a social
gathering that while praising the living veterans of the
Civil War it would be well to remember the patriotic
dead by placing flowers on their graves. Nothing
resulted from this suggestion until he advanced the
idea again the following spring to General John B. Murray. Murray, a civil war hero and
intensely patriotic, supported the idea wholeheartedly and marshalled veterans' support.
Plans were developed for a more complete celebration by a local citizens' committee
headed by Welles and Murray.
On May 5, 1866. the Village was decorated with flags at half mast, draped with ever-
greens and mourning black. Veterans, civic societies and residents, led by General
Murray, marched to the strains of martial music to the three village cemeteries. There
impressive ceremonies were held and soldiers' graves decorated. One year later, on May
5, 1867. the ceremonies were repeated. In 1868. Waterloo joined with other communi-
ties in holding their observance on May 30th, in accordance with General Logan's
orders. It has been held annually ever since.
Waterloo held the first formal, village wide, annual observance of a day dedicated to
honoring the war dead. On March 7, 1966, the State of New York recognized Waterloo
by a proclamation signed by Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller. This was followed by
recognition from Congress of the United States when the House of Representatives and
the Senate unanimously passed House Concurrent Resolution 587 on May 17th and
May 19th, 1966 respectively. This reads in part as follows: "Resolved that the Congress
of the United States, in recognition of the patriotic tradition set in motion one hundred
years ago in the Village of Waterloo, NY, does hereby officially recognize Waterloo,
New York as the birthplace of Memorial Day..."
On May 26, 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson, signed a Presidential
Proclamation recognizing Waterloo as the Birthplace of Memorial Day

ARIES
March 21st thru April 19th
Monday is a good day to do as little as pos-
sible -- put offdecisions, conserve your ener-
gy. Then, Tuesday, get ready to burn those
stored-up carbs. Action, enthusiasm, maybe
even sports are all in the stars. Wednesday is
a physical day, too -- objects in motion and
all that. Thursday, a speed bump returns you
to a more casual pace, and Friday is down-
right slow. But Saturday and Sunday, com-
munication is key, and the faster you're able
to get across what you're trying to convey,
the more successful you'll be. Some amount
of flirtation may be involved.

TAURUS
April 20th thru May 20th
One way to figure out what to do at the
start of the week is to consider what
someone you admire might do in your
same shoes. Or, better yet, find someone
you admire and just ask them. The advice
you get will be good, but you may not
necessarily be ready to implement it.
Wednesday you're torn between sprinting
ahead and taking the slow route -- a some-
what disorienting state to be in. Then,
Thursday, you find someone else who
totally relates. On Friday, sex appeal, lux-
ury and enjoyment are big themes. No
wonder the weekend finds you shopping.


GEMINI
SMay 21st thru June 21st
You're at once focused on the future and
utterly unable to concentrate on Monday.
How weird! There may just be too many fac-
tors on the table. A clarifying conversation
on Tuesday or Wednesday sets you on much
better footing. That said, there are obstacles
in store for you this week. Don't avoid them.
Embrace them. Let life be a game. The
obstacle on Thursday may be a business mat-
ter, and the obstacle on Friday may take the
form of a nosy neighbor. This weekend, the
people in your life are, blissfully, nothing but
wonderful, and there's a lot going on, includ-
ing movement on the romance front.

CANCER
June 22nd thru July 22nd
You have good energy on Monday, but not a
tremendous amount of focus. Ideal tasks
include driving around listening to music,
taking long walks or trying to identify'
household objects in the shapes of clouds.
Save the real tasks for Tuesday and
Wednesday: Your focus may still be a bit off,
but your mind will be quick. Thursday and
Friday are perfect for dinner parties and
phone calls -- situations for you to demon-
strate your dazzling conversational skills --
and this weekend sees you taking a walk on
the wild side.


I-


LIBIRA
Sept 23rd thru Oct


22nd


What with all the rubber balls flying through
the air on Monday, you'd best keep your head
down. You have work to do, anyway. You
can join in on the excitement -- the party, the
dodge ball game, whatever it is -- on
Tuesday. Wednesday is almost exclusively
about you and you-know-who (either a
romantic partner or a work partner) but
Thursday is about your extended group of
friends. On Friday, the gains you'll make
materially will pale in comparison to the
gains you'll make socially. The weekend
finds you and your comrades talking almost
nonstop.

SCORPIO
O I Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
On Monday, you have an excuse to show off
the secret passageway between your library
and your vault. It's a very James Bond sort
of day. Fantasy, mystery and hidden talents
are in the stars. Tuesday and Wednesday are
considerably more practical -- your health is
on your mind, as is work, as is being of.serv-
ice to a friend in need -- but Thursday and
Friday put you in yet another Bond-like sit-
uation requiring diplomatic prowess, bold-
ness and ingenuity. This weekend, buoyed
by your success, you may feel up for taking
a risk. Don't. Even secret agents sometimes
must be modest.

SAGITTARIUS
Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
The day-to-day has become utterly uninter-
esting to you. On Monday, it's time to
expand your horizons. Consider your future
in the context of the past -- look how far
you've come -- and make a plan. Set a goal
or two. Tuesday and Wednesday, your life,
looked at in a new light, is a game you sud-
denly enjoy playing. It's as if you're a kid
again. And on Thursday and Friday there is
so much going on you have no chance of
being bored. Saturday and Sunday, your
most pressing responsibility will be to catch
up on sleep.

CAPRICORN
Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
You can get what you want on Monday if
you ask for it the right way. Put your request
in an email, where you can word it just so.
You will be surprised how well this works.
Tuesday and Wednesday, safety and security
are all you want in the world, so it's natural
you may turn toward members of your fam-
ily. By Thursday, your worries will evapo-
rate. Creativity and pleasure will reign. A
camping trip wouldn't be a bad idea on
Friday, and it might set the stage for a surge
of inner clarity over the weekend. On
Sunday, you have no use for small talk. Cut
to the chase.


I.


LEO
July 23rd thru Aug 22nd


. A small problem might seem like a big
problem to you on Monday. Don't fly off the
handle, if you can help it. Tuesday and
Wednesday, the problems that present them-
selves are eminently surmountable -- you
will enjoy fixing whatever it is that's busted.
You could be given a bucket of tar and you'd
make a beautiful paved pathway. Your opti-
mism is attractive. Don't be surprised if you
find yourself thronged by admirers on
Thursday and Friday. This weekend, you feel
more sensitive than usual, but you also feel
inspired toward new action.


AQUARIUS
'a Jan 20th thru Feb 18th


A 'hiccup in your cash flow on Monday
brings about a total reconsideration of what's
important to you. Nothing is as strong an
indication of what's important to you as
what you spend your money on. Tuesday
and Wednesday, a pattern in your life you've
never noticed before suddenly becomes con-
spicuous. You regard it with curiosity more
than anything. Thursday and Friday offer
more opportunities for learning -- an excit-
ing discovery is in your midst -- but
Saturday and Sunday are too consumed by
the fires of white-hot romance to be strictly
educational. Lucky you.

A 1,000-Pound Gift for Dad

Making memories on Father's Day is what Brian Gallagher, a finance student from
Georgetown University in California, had in mind when he adopted a manatee for his dad
last year. Although Brian didn't show up on his dad's doorstep in Napa Valley with a one-
ton marine mammal, he did give him an adoption package which included a color photo
of a real manatee, an adoption certificate, biography, and handbook from Save the Manatee
Club. The mission of the Florida-based, national nonprofit organization, co-founded in
1981 by singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, is to protect endangered manatees and their
aquatic habitat for future generations.

"Adopting a manatee was the perfect solution for a Father's Day gift because it's simple,
thoughtful, and unique," said Brian. "My dad thought it was great. He's always been
interested in oceanography, and he taught his family to care about animals."

There are 32 real, living manatees with known histories to choose from in the Club's three
Florida adoption programs at Blue Spring State Park near Orange City, Homosassa Springs
Wildlife State Park in Homosassa, and in the Tampa Bay area.

Brian chose Merlin from the Club's adoption program for his dad because he thought the
name was clever and he liked the description of Merlin's curious personality and love of
exploring.

Gift adoptions cost $25 and also include four printed newsletters and six e-newsletters
throughout the year. Shipping is free within the United States. This Father's Day, each
new member who joins the Adopt-A-Manatee program online for a $35 tax-deductible
donation, will also receive the Club's official T-shirt with a full color underwater design
by renowned Florida artist, Nancy Blauers.

Manatees are Florida's official state marine mammal and they're listed as endangered at
the state, federal, and international levels. The population is estimated to be about 3,800
concentrated year-round in Florida.

"Manatees continue to face grave threats," explained Patrick Rose, aquatic biologist and
Executive Director of Save the Manatee Club. "Manatee injuries and deaths from boat hits
remain high, and there's a critical concern for the potential loss of winter warm-water sites,
such as natural springs and power plant outfalls. Plus, the loss of aquatic habitat to coastal

NFLPA LEADER IN TOWN Newly-named NFL Players Association
Executive Director DeMaurice Smith talked to Jaguars players on Tuesday. During a
meeting with reporters prior to speaking to Jaguars players, Smith reiterated his
request that NFL owners explain why they are opting out of the current Collective
Bargaining Agreement.
"The owners opted out of the deal. The players did not," Smith said. "Why is it
unreasonable to ask to be shown why the deal doesn't work for you?"

FACIGAL


AFI-Discovery Channel SILVERDOCS
Documentary Festival announced one of this year's
special programs during the eight-day event held just
outside Washington, DC. Muhammad Ali, one of the
most iconic figures of the 20th century will be making
an exclusive appearance at SILVERDOCS to present
Lionsgate/ Spike TV in association with Muhammad
Ali Enterprises' FACING ALI from director Pete
McCormack and producer Derik Murray.
From the moment he captured the gold at the 1960
Summer Olympics, the fighter who first came to
prominence as Cassius Clay electrified the world and
transformed the art of boxing. Articulate, handsome,
charismatic and outspoken, he became an icon of the
burgeoning civil rights movement and a hero to mil-
lions around the globe. A master showman and a bril-
liant strategist, Ali won as much by getting inside his
opponents' heads as by his astounding physical talents.
With exclusive interviews and vintage footage from
the champ's unmatched career, FACING ALI recreates
his most unforgettable rivalries, and recounts his tri-
umphs, tragedies and unstoppable spirit.
Through fascinating and deeply personal conversa-
tions with some of The Greatest's most renowned
opponents, including Ken Norton, Eamie Shavers, Joe
Frazier, George Foreman, Leon Spinks and Larry
Holmes, FACING ALI tells the story of modem prize
fighting. As the boxers each recount their pivotal expe-
riences in the ring with Ali, they also provide touching
snapshots of their own remarkable careers, and unique
insights into a man who remains one of the most
prominent figures in American history.
"Muhammad Ali is a larger than life figure who has
captured the hearts and minds of generations. We are
honored to welcome him to the Festival and to present
this important part of his legacy," said Sky Sitney, SIL-
VERDOCS Artistic Director.
SILVERDOCS will release its Competition films
on May 20, 2009 and its full slate on May 21, 2009.

Unveiling of Historical Marker and Outdoor
Exhibit at American Beach

Pictures bi FM Powell
The National Park Service (NPS) has designed two exhibits to dis-
play at the foot of NaNa, the 8.5-acre sand dune owned by the NPS
as a part of the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve at
American Beach. The panels were put up on display for the special
event activities at American Beach on April 18, 2009.

The event was co-hosted by the National Park Service and the
American Beach Property Owners Association. The association
unveiled a new historical marker about The Beach Lady, MaVynne
Betsch, who campaigned for the preservation of American Beach.
Through her efforts, a ten-acre corridor including NaNa and Evans'
Rendezvous on the oceanfront became public property in the
Timucuan Preserve (National Park Service) and the Nassau County
Park System.

During the period of racial segregation, African Americans were
barred from most of the beaches in Florida. American Beach was
founded in 1935 to provide African Americans with beach access in
a resort atmosphere. The sand dune is located at the heart of
American Beach. The exhibits briefly discuss the heyday of
American Beach and show historic and modern photographs of
activities at the beach. The design of the exhibits lets the large pho-
tographs of people enjoying the beach speak to the atmosphere and
importance of American Beach.

American Beach is located on the south end of Amelia Island, along
A1A between Jacksonville and Fernandina Beach. The National
Park Service owns the 8.5-acre sand dune. The majority of land at
American Beach is held by private landholders please respect their
privacy. Restrooms can be found at Burney Beachfront Park. There
are no other visitor services or facilities for the public at American
Beach.

The Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a 46,000-acre
National Park Service preserve located in Jacksonville, Florida. For
more information, including directions, historical information, or
event listings, call Kingsley Plantation at 904.251.3537 or visit the
park website: www.nps.govltimu

ness plan, which included the type of business. product or service, pricing considerations, tar-
get market and competition, and general operations. As a finalist, FAMU students had 25
minutes to present their business plans to the judges and prove that their plan can be convert-
ed into a viable business strategy.

HBCU Classic Special" will feature candid moments with the student teams as they prepare
for the competition, highlights from each business plan presentation as well as the celebrity

ness professionals can \isit www.tvoneonline.com for exact air date, local times and channel

tion of a need in the black business community to educate and develop the next generation of
entrepreneurs. It was designed to offer students the opportunity to apply their classroom
knowledge to real-world entrepreneurial experience. The competition was opened to histori-
cally black colleges and universities (HBCU) students nationwide, and received business plan
submissions from students from more than 80 percent of the nation's HBCUs.
