A View of Michelle Obama


m -'." ,-A e,=


37-


37-=,


L,~


The daily morning show, "The
View" this week, featured Mrs.
Obama as a co-host, in an effort to
allow the public to see 'the real'
lady in a comfortable environment
since she has been the target of
attack.
The Princeton and Harvard
graduate and attorney who
resigned from her $275,000 a year
job to help her husband in his
campaign to become President of
the United States is again facing
the dilemma of having to be "bet-
ter."


i9=During her role as co-host of The
View, she was able to allow the
*- viewers to see her and develop
their own opinion of this 44-year-
old Chicago raised mother of two and the product of an ordinary African American
working family. After her appearance, many opinions changed but as she knows, it
won't be easy for a woman of color.

Tuskegee Airmen Movie
The Black airmen who demonstrated that Black
Americans did have skill, will be featured in a film by
George Lucas. The film will highlight their record of
success as they escorted thousands of U. S. bombers
during World War II.
Many feel the full story has not been told and hopes
that Lucas will also show the strengths of the men as
well as the problems they encountered simply because
they were African Americans.
Lucas hopes to begin shooting the film in early 2009.
The producer said he thinks the story will speak to any-
one who has ever wanted to succeed at something oth-
ers said was impossible.

Founded In April 1951 By Eric 0. Simpson
First African American Inducted Into
The Florida Press Hall Of Fame '


In early May, Mildred
Loving, a widow, grand-
mother and great-grand-
mother, quietly passed
away at her home in
rural Caroline County,
Virginia. Yet her passing
was noted across the
country because Mrs.
Loving, who was Black,
and her late husband
Richard, who was
White, made history
when their struggle to
have their marriage rec-
ognized led to the land-
mark 1967 Supreme
Court ruling overturning
laws in Virginia and
other states that banned
interracial marriage. But
the Lovings, who
shunned the spotlight,
always made it clear that
they never set out to be
social revolutionaries.
They loved each other,
wanted to marry, and
beyond that, as Mrs.
Loving said, "It was
God's work."
Mrs. Loving first met
her husband in the early
1950s when she was 11
and he was 17. In
Central Point, the small
community where they


both grew up, many
Black and White fami-
lies had lived closely
together for decades.
The Lovings became
young sweethearts, and
in 1958, when Mildred
became pregnant, they
decided to get married.
They drove to
Washington, D.C., for
their marriage license,
and Mrs. Loving later
said she thought they
were doing that because
less paperwork was
required there. But
Richard apparently
understood something
she didn't: Getting a
marriage license as a
mixed-race couple
would have been illegal
and impossible in their
home state.
Mr. Loving may not
have known how the
state of Virginia would
treat legal interracial
marriages that had been
performed elsewhere,
but five weeks after their
wedding, both Lovings
received a very literal
rude awakening: Acting
on a "tip," sheriff's
deputies surrounded

their bed with tiasnlgnts
at two in the morning
demanding to know why
they were there together.
Their reply that they
were husband and wife
made no difference. The
Lovings were arrested,
held in jail for several
nights, and charged with
cohabitation and violat-
ing Virginia's Racial
Integrity Act. Under a
plea bargain, in order to
avoid a year-long jail
sentence, they were
forced to leave Virginia
and were prohibited
from returning to the
state together for 25
years.
The Lovings settled in
Washington, D.C., and
began raising a family
there, but quickly
missed the small town
where they had spent
nearly their entire lives.
Five years later, inspired
by the March on
Washington and the
wave of new civil rights
laws, Mrs. Loving
decided to write to U.S.
Attorney General Robert
Kennedy to ask if any of
the new legislation
would allow them to
return to Virginia. He
referred the Lovings'
case to the ACLU, where

lawyers helped take the
case all the way to the
U.S. Supreme Court. On
June 12, 1967, the
Supreme Court justices
ruled 9-0 that Virginia's
law and all others like it
were unconstitutional.
Mr. and Mrs. Loving
soon returned to their
hometown with their
three children, although
their own happiness
ended in tragedy just a
few years later. In 1975,
Mr. Loving was killed
and Mrs. Loving lost the
sight in one eye in a car
accident caused by a
drunk driver. But the
Lovings had paved the
way for thousands of
other couples like them-
selves, who weren't mar-
rying "outside of their
race" but were marrying
the people they loved.
Thanks to God's work
and the Lovings' love,

Movies
The Incredible Hulk;
Universal Pictures and
Marvel Entertainment stars
Edward Norton, Liv Tyler,
Time Roth, Tim Blacke nel-
son, Ty Burrell and William
Hurt.
Right out of the box, this
movie 'was tailor made for
Hulk fans. Ed Norton deliv-
ered on the money in terms
of giving the Hulk a likeable
personality in his human
form and a tear nothing, "up-
jack-persona" when he
changed into the big green
monster. My only problem
,was when the monster
bumped his head while he


was hiding his girl Betty
Ross (Liv Tyler) in the cave
as if it hurt after he had
absorbed a couple hundred
rounds of 20 millimeter rifle
shells and 60 millimeter
combat helicopter shells.
The pace of the movie was
good, special effects excel-
lent and the action spectacu-
lar. You'll get off on this
,one!
Wanted; Universal
Pictures stars James
McAvoy, Morgan Freeman,
Terence Stamp, Thomas
Kretschmann, Common
and Angelina Jolie.
Action is the name of the
game in this one. Wesly
Gibson (McAvoy) starts out
is a boring nobody who
works out of his office cubi-
cal daily and is tormented by
an over baring boss who
loves to embarrass him in
front of his co-workers. He
crosses paths with Fox
(Jolie) a professional assas-
sin and his life take a 180
degree turn. He himself
becomes a top notch killer.
Needles to say that this film
has enough shooting in it for
3 films. Some of the stunts
are too over the top for real-
ity and Wesly get the crap
beat out of him way too
much. Fox doesn't let her
sexiness get in the way of
being a kick-ass persona.
Sloan (Freeman) takes total
command and never lets up!
This is another one to see if
you want to be hyped tup!

Crime Stories Continued from A-1


Sexual Assault in Front of Child
It was early Wednesday morning when a Northside
female was confronted by a man in her carport. The
lady said that the man first demanded money and when
she advised that she did not have any, he pulled off her
clothes searching for money and then forced her into
her house where sexual acts were performed while her
young child looked on. The attacker held a knife on her
and afterwards, he took $34 from her drawers and left.
She believes he was a transient, riding on bike. The
woman was treated at the scene

Robber Shots Self and Dies
A Dallas area man decided to rob a house and while
doing so, accidentally shot himself after kicking down
the door.
The attempted robbery did not go as planned and on
Tuesday morning, the body of the robber, Cameron
Sands, 19, was found outside of the house.
The Grand Prairie police department said that evi-
dence indicates that Sands shot himself while trying to
pull the gun from his waistband. It appears he then
dropped the gun after he had wounded himself in the
stomach while trying to leave the house.
The medical examiner's office ruled Sands' death as
accidental.

Road Rage Recognition
S Layton Nerozzi, 33, a University of North Florida employee on Tuesday, apparently on
his way to work, was cut off by a driver and became upset. The altercation continued over
into the campus and after the driver parked, Neroz4i pulled up next to him and pulled a .9
S mm gluck from his glove compartment. The driver left the scene and called the police
S -l "".. where Nerozzi was arrested.
Studies show that often people who may be a road rage attacker have personalized evi-
dence on their cars such as special tags or different type bumper stickers.

Rights Restored to Over 115,000 Ex-Felons in Florida

According to reports, more than 115,000 former felons have had their civil rights
restored since Florida's new state rule became effective a little over a year ago.
Governor Crist, who chairs the Board of Executive Clemency Board, restored
rights ended the former policy that required the panel to act individually on every
restoration of rights requests, had the policy changed soon after he became gover-
nor. The restored rights include voting and the ability to get state and local licens-
es for certain types of jobs.
The rights of the 115,000 former felons have been eased with different seminars
and help from citizens. He also worked with lawmakers and prison ministries to
help restore rights and to help the f6nner imnates get on track and stay on track for
jobs and opportunities that will help them stay out of prison.

dia aldlow students to pick up hier,'cr ihcr le, k1ft off in tiadiunal
school. There are also Life Skills sessions aimed at workplace skills
and behaviors so students can become more successful employees.
The Drop Back In (DPI) program is designed for young people,
ages 16-21, who have already left the school system and wish to
earn a diploma, rather than a GED. Students interested in dropping
back in usually register with their home schools and then attend
classes at the Alternatives Unlimited center, which is not affiliated
with a traditional high school. Alternatives Unlimited monitors and
evaluates each student's progress in accordance with state and dis-
trict standards.
This unique academic setting gives students a second chance at
catching up on credits, raising grade point averages or completing a
high school diploma. When you ask students what they like best
about their school, they will tell you; the small class size, individual
attention, the ability to work at their own pace, the number of hours
they spend in class, the amount of time spent on hands-on activities
(computers), original research for projects and the superb non-judg-
mental teachers, administrators and staff.
There are seven (7) locations in Jacksonville covering the
North, South, East and Westside of Jacksonville. The students can
choose between attending the 8am 12noon or 1pm 4pm sched-
ule. The Drop Back in Academy recently held its graduation ceremo-
ny at First Coast High School. Besides the regular curriculum, the
Academy also includes courses on Resume writing, and job inter-
viewing skills. Forty (40) hours of community service is required.
Many of the students participated in recent job fairs here in
Jacksonville.
The Executive Director is Donaldo Harris based out of Ft.
Lauderdale, Seabon Dixon, III is Marketing Director, and Ronald
Williams is the instructor at The Campus Park location on Tyler
Street, located at Bethel AME. The Campus park Academy also has
two Edwards College students as student teachers. The student
teachers are: Richard Rubbenz, Criminal Justice Major and
Alexandra Dungill, Math and Engineering Major. If you would like
additional information on the Duval DBI, please call (904) 448-

From Actual Police Reports

Did You Hear About?...


DESPITE THE STREET NAME...THIS WAS
NO PLAY THING An officer was dispatched
to the 5100 block of Playpen Dr. for report of a
home invasion robbery. Upon his arrival he met
with the complainant Ms. JH. who stated that she
heard someone knocking on the front door of the
residence. Her boyfriend, Mr. CS, victim, went
to answer the door. The complainant then stated
she heard her boyfriend get into a scuffle. the
complainant advised the officer that she went
inside her bathroom, located in the master bed-
room and hid in the closet. The complainant told
the officer when she came out to see what was
going on, she discovered a black magazine laying on the living room floor door and
her boyfriend gone. She said the victim later returned to the residence and he said
that when he went to answer the door, he looked out of the window and asked the
suspect what he wanted. He said the suspect asked him if Kay lived there. The vic-
tim stated that he advised the suspect that he had the wrong house. The victim then
opened the door and that's when the suspect and the victim got into a short scuffle.
The victim stated that during the scuffle, the magazine, which didn't have any bul-
lets in it, was knocked out of the gun. The suspect still having the gun in his posses-
sion, then pointed the gun at the victim and stated., "Kay told me ya'll got some sh_t
in here." The victim then escorted the suspect to the closet located. inside the mas-
ter bedroom and made the victim get down on his hands and knees. The victim told
the suspect that on the top shelf in the gray box is one thousand dollars. The victim
advised the police that the suspect knocked the box down with his gun. The victim
was able to escape from his home with the suspect still at his residence and fled to
his aunt's house which is located in the 7000
," block of Melvin Rd. An evidence technician
was not requested due to there not being any
processable items in the house. A neighbor-
hood canvass revealed a 40 caliber and 40 cal
magazine which will be held for possible
latent finger prints. Due to lack of suspect
information, patrol efforts were suspended.

HOW DID A BULGE IN POCKET LEAD
TS TO CRACK AT HOME? DID HE
__ CRACK-UP? -An officer stopped a vehicle
for a tag cover. He noticed the suspect was
acting very nervous and moving around inside
his vehicle. The officer then asked the suspect to step out of his vehicle and asked
if he had any weapons and could he pat him down. The suspect gave consent to a
pat down, at which time the officer felt a large bulge in his right front pocket. From
the officer's narcotic training, it felt like a bag of crack cocaine. The officer asked
him what was in his pocket and he stated "its crack." The suspect was then hand-
cuffed and the officer recovered a large baggie of crack cocaine from the suspect.
The officer also recovered a large sum of US currency from the suspect's left front
pocket. A detective was notified and responded to the scene. The suspect told the
detective and the officer that there was additional amount of drugs, at the residence
on Ashleigh Park Dr. The detective obtained a search warrant for the suspect's res-
idence. Once the search warrant was signed, it was executed: A search of the sus-
pect's bedroom revealed two large bags of powder cocaine in the bedroom closet in
a cell phone box. Also located in the
closet was a large bag of crack cocaine in
a tin can. The officer located three
beakers with cocaine residue under the
bathroom sink. The suspect was read his
rights and booked into PTDF. ,

PROSTITUTION AND NARCOTICS
-An officer was working a prostitution / '
and narcotics complaint in a motor inn in '
the 3100 block of Philips Hwy. During -
the investigation, he learned that the
motel's housekeeper was possibly using
and selling narcotics from one of the
motel's rooms. The officers were stand-
ing on the motel's property when suspect Ms. BW walked past them. As she did, the
officers engaged her in conversation and she agreed to speak with them. During the
conversation, the officers explained that a drug complaint had been against the
housekeeper. The suspect stated that she was the housekeeper and that while she
used cocaine, she did not have any on her person. The suspect then invited the police
to her room to look. The officers accompanied the suspect to the room she occupied
and opened the door and invited them inside. When the officers got inside, they
noticed suspect Ms. R lying on the bed inside the room and next to the suspect was
in plain view, a piece of crack cocaine. And, within the suspect's reach was a crack
pipe with residue. The suspect was detained. Both suspects were given their consti-
tutional rights. Suspect Ms. R stated to the officers that she had smoked crack
J cocaine inside of the room and then
fell asleep. She further stated that the
cocaine observed was hers. Suspect
Ms. BW stated to the officers that she
keeps cocaine in the room, but did not
have any on her at the time she was
contacted by them. She went on to say
that she smokes crack cocaine in the
room and allows others that buy it at
the hotel to use it there when she is
home. The room is rented in suspect
S Ms. BW's name. the suspects were
taken to PDF. the contraband was
J seized and placed into the property
room.

Community Hospice Profile for
National Nursing Assistants Week
-- Cheryl Foreman, CNA --

To help raise awareness about and respect for nursing assistants, the week of June 12- 19 was established as
National Nursing Assistants Week. Community Hospice of Northeast Florida depends on Certified Nursing
Assistants (CNAs) to gently care for hospice patients wherever they live-in their homes, in long term care or
assisted living facilities and in Community Hospice's four inpatient care centers. With commitment and experi-
ence, these professionals help patients with daily personal care, providing the kind of compassionate end-of-life
care and support that has become Community Hospice's hallmark. The following profile highlights a Community
Hospice CNAwho has dedicated more
than 20 years providing special care to
patients.
It is 8 a.m. and Cheryl Foreman,
Community Hospice's CNA scheduler,
has begun to schedule the 45 CNAs
who will provide personal care such as
bathing, changing linens and feeding
for 300 patients that day. A CNA her-
self, Cheryl has worked for
Community Hospice since 1988 and
plans on continuing to do so until her
retirement She considers her work a
ministry and a blessing. She claims, It
is the best thing that ever happened to
me because l am doing God's work and
I care. Being there for our patients and
making sure that their needs are met is
what matters most."
Cheryl was the first CNA fotr -
Community Hospice, visiting six to
eight patients a day all over Northeast Florida. Though the years, she worked her way up to senior CNA and coor-
dinato; serving alongside and supervising other CNAs in the field. She is now scheduler, responsible for dispatch-
ing and overseeing the entire CNA team for Community Hospice. A CNA at heart, Cheryl comes to work in her
uniform ready to help whenever or wherever needed.
Her experience has taught her to deal positively with the emotionalups and downs that come with the job of
caring for dying patients. Patient and CNA often become so bonded that it can be difficult emotional tenritory to
navigate. Often, patients will disclose their innermnnost feelings to CNAs. From experience, Cheryl understands the
emotions her CNAs are dealing with and provides support and wisdom along the wa CH.
Cheryl has created a family legacy at Community Hospice. Her daughter works in the admissions depart-
mnent and her daughter-in-law is a patient care team assistant for the care team that serves patients on the north-
west side of town. She is also active at her church, Resurrection Baptist-Christian Center where her husband,
Glenn Sr. is the pastor and son, Glenn Jr. is co-pastor Chetyl leads the women's ministry and teaches children.
Over the years, Cheryl has learned that material things are not important. Her mantra is simple, "Life is pir-
cious. Do what you can do today because tomorrow's not promised to you."
Established in 1979 as the first hospice program in Northeast Florida, Comimunity Hospice of Northeast
Florida helps nearly 1,000 patients live better with advanced illness each day in Baker; Clay, Duval, Nassau and
St. Johns counties, through the support of more than 700 employees and nearly 900 volunteers. The nonprofit
organization has served more than 48,000 children and adults-at home, in long term care facilities, hospitals and
through four inpatient centers throughout Jacksonville. Community Hospice FoundationTM generates philanthrop-
ic and community support for patient care set-rvices, family needs and community programs such as Community
PedsCare@, a pediatric palliative and hospice program, and the programs and services through the Charles M4.
Neviaser Educational Institute. Care is available to all patients who need it, regardless of their ability to pay.

Kanye West to Perform as Grand Finale. For The Nike+
Human Race The World's Largest One Day Running
Event


Music takes center stage on the heels of the official
registration opening for the Nike+ Human Race, the
world's biggest one-day running event taking place on
August 31, 2008. The race brings together the power of
sport and music to inspire and connect runners from
every comer of the planet. Participants in this unprece-
dented event will experience an exclusive music per-
formance by some of today's top artists in each of the
25 designated race cities.
In Los Angeles, nine-time Grammy Award winning
artist Kanye West will headline the run's post race con-
cert for the grand finale of the 25-city Nike+ Human
Race. Runners will take to the streets passing the city's
most famous landmarks before ending at the LA
Coliseum to see West take the stage.
"I'm hitting the stage in Los Angeles for the Nike+
Human Race, Nike's dopest 10k run ever. This race is
bringing together hundreds of thousands of people from
all over the world to run and listen to some great music
while serving a higher cause, and I'm excited to perform
in L.A. as part ofthe grand finale," said West.
West's performance will bring to a close, an
unprecedented day of races and activities around the
globe starting in Taipei, ending in LA and including
cities across Europe, Asia and North and South
America.
In London, runners will be treated to an exclusive
performance by world-renowned American DJ, song-
writer, musician and singer Moby in the city's famed
Wembley Stadium. Other all-star artists confirmed to
play at the Nike+ Human Race include chart-topping
rock band All-American Rejects in NY; hometown
favorite Fall Out Boy in Chicago; R&B songstress
Kelly Rowland in Paris; dance-electro-pop duo The
Pinker Tones in Madrid, Turkish pop sensation Kenan
Dogulu in Istanbul; the Fantastic Four in Munich;
Beijing-based singing duo Yu Quan in Shanghai and
American rock band Boy Likes Girl in Singapore.
Beyond running and music, the Nike+ Human Race
is also an opportunity to give back. Participants will be
able to run for a worthy cause and support the three
official Nike+ Human Race charitable partners: the
Lance Armstrong Foundation -- uniting people in the
fight against cancer; WWF -- the global conservation
organization addressing the causes and impacts of cli-
mate change; and the UN refugee agency's ninemil-
lion.org campaign -- bringing sport and education to
refugee youth. Together, Nike and runners will raise
funds to donate at least USD $3 million to the Nike+
Human Race charities. Money will be raised via give-
backs from registration fees, a percentage of Nike+
Human Race t-shirt sales and a donation of USD $1 .
million from Nike.
The Nike+ Human Race will also feature an online
pledge tool so individual runners can donate additional
funds to the cause of their choice and invite friends and
family to contribute on their behalf.
"As a committed runner and a cancer survivor, I'm

proud to be participating in the Nike+ Human Race,"
Lance Armstrong said. "The race offers the best of both
worlds by bringing together a global community to run
together and support worthy causes like the Lance
Armstrong Foundation, the UN refugee agency's nine-
million.org and WWF in our combined efforts to have a
positive impact on the world."
Other Nike athletes will also be joining the move-
ment to run with the world and for a cause. Like Lance
Armstrong, they will serve as honorary athlete ambas-
sadors for the charities and join in Human Race activi-
ties. Six-time marathon winner and current NY
Marathon Champion, Paula Radcliffe and middle dis-
tance runner Kara Goucher will be running to support
WWF, while marathoner Meb Keflezighi will be repre-
senting ninemillion.org.
Nikeplus.com will be the official destination for the
Nike+ Human Race and for all pre-race training needs.
Here, runners can create a personal profile page or stay
motivated by sampling and downloading the latest in
Nike+ Sport Music offerings. Sport Music offers run-
ners the best in original Training Run and Coaching
Mixes designed specifically for treadmill and road runs.
Beginning June 15, runners will also be able to visit
Race City pages covering local race info and news,
Training pages for information and links to in-city
training runs, events with official race partners includ-
ing 24Hour Fitness and Starbucks and Nike+ Coach

The winning piece will be displayed in U.S. Capitol Building's Cannon Tunnel

-Jacksonville, FL., July 13, 2008 Imari Bratcher (15), a member of the Lee Boys
& Girls Club in Jacksonville, won first place in District Three's 2008 Congressional Art
Contest. Sponsored by the Congressional Art Caucus, the art contest allows student
across the country to participate in their local congressional district contests for a chance
to have their own piece of art work in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year.
The official art competition is sponsored annually by the Congressional Art Caucus.
Winners from all districts receive round trip airline tickets for them and two guests to
Washington, D.C. to see their piece in the U.S. Capitol Building's Cannon Tunnel. In
addition, each winner has the opportunity to qualify for an art scholarship.
Imari competed against
10 other Jacksonville high
school students on May 12,
2008. During the competi-
tion Imari had the chance to
meet with Congresswoman
Corrine Brown. Imari's
winning piece will go on
display Wednesday, June
25, 2008 and will stay on
display for one year.
As a student of Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, Imari has been known for his
constructive art work; it was his teacher, Mr. Wilson, who entered him into the contest.
As a member of the Lee Boys & Girls Club, Imari has made a positive impact on the
members and staff just through his hard work and determination. He was chosen as the S
Lee Club's 2008 Youth of the Year.
"We are very proud and excited for Imari," stated Debbie Verges, president of the

ented Imari truly is."

Girls Clubs of America. BGCNF has.played an integral role in Jacksonville for over 45
years, providing daily after-school programs to nearly 1,300 young people daily at 12
facilities in Duval, Nassau, and St. Johns Counties.
According to the U.S. Department of Education and Justice, students who attend
quality after-school programs demonstrate better academic performance, more positive
behavior and better school attendance than those who do not. They also develop greater
expectations for the future. Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida offers time-tested H
and nationally recognized programs and activities in five distinct areas: character and
leadership, education and careers, health and life skills, the arts, sports, fitness and

JACKOVILAREA STDNSGTDW0 N IT IN HANDS-O CONERATO


JACKSONVILLE, FL -
June. 17, 2008 --
Twenty Jacksonville-area high
school students are taking the
great outdoors by storm this
summer through a six-week city-
wide high school conservation
program with the City of
Jacksonville managed by the
Student Conservation
Association (SCA) and funded
in partnership with the Jim
Moran Foundation, Jacksonville
Jaguars Foundation, Late
Bloomers Garden Circle and
others. The program serves to
increase environmental aware-
ness while providing local urban
youth with paid summer


employment, hands-on experi-
ence, leadership opportunities
and team-building skills that pro-
mote conservation and enhance
Jacksonville's unique natural
resources.
The participating students
from ten different Jacksonville-
area high schools will receive a
monetary stipend for their work
on summer conservation crews,
with the added benefit of weekly
environmental education days,
community service, job skills
and career development.
Participants are recommended
by school counselors, teachers
and community members, or
come from partner programs


such as the Bridge, and many
applicants express a strong inter-
est in the environment and con-
tributing to their local communi-
ties.
"A lot of people in
Jacksonville have never heard of
SCA, but I have them to thank
for changing the way I look at
my city, surroundings and com-
munity," said '07 SCA alum
Brittany Williams. "SCA can be
challenging, but in the end all of
your hard work pays off."
From June 17th through
July 25th, the crew will engage
students in various service proj-
ects ranging from invasive
species removal and trail instal-


lations to risk management and
environmental education. The
service projects will be conduct-
ed at the following Jacksonville-
area sites: Pumpkin Hill Creek
Preserve State Park, Talbot
Islands State Park, Hanna Beach,
Tree Hill Nature Center, Carvill
Community Center and
Timucuan National Park.
Students participating in the
program are supervised by four
experienced crew leaders,
including two teachers, for inten-
sive projects such as trail restora-
tion, boardwalk reconstruction,
and invasive plant removal.
Weekly environmental educa-
tion days will include the.study


of ecosystems, conservation
principles and environmental
awareness, as well as a four-day
recreational camping/hiking trip
at the program's end.
SCA is a nationwide con-
servation force of college and
high school volunteers who pro-
tect and restore America's parks,
forests, and other public lands.
For more than 50 years, SCA's
active, hands-on approach to
conservation has helped to
develop a new generation of
conservation leaders, inspire life-
long stewardship, and save our
planet. To learn more, visit
www.theSCA.org

Tuskegee Airman Logo

Contest: Submit Your

Design!


Virtually every business
or organization in America
operates with a "logo" as a
way to quickly associate a
product with its owners. The
logo which is widely associ-
ated with the Tuskegee
Airmen, Inc. (TAI) today is
owned and trademark regis-
tered by the Los Angeles
Chapter, TAI.
The TAI Executive
Committee in a recent meet-
ing made a decision that
long term it was in the best
interest of the organization
to create and own its logo.
This communication is
announcing a contest to
design a new logo for our
organization.This is a great
opportunity for someone
from your chapter or local
community to help enhance
the image of the organiza-
tion with a new logo by
developing a rendering
which they feel is reflective
of the organization.
There will be some form
of recognition, to be deter-
mined, including monetary
recognition for the selected
design if it is approved by
the TAI body. If a design is
submitted and approved as
the new logo, a legal docu-
ment will be executed with
the submitting party and
TAI, providing full owner-
ship rights to Tuskegee


Airmen Incorporated.
Designs need to be submit-
ted by June 23, 2008 to be
considered. Any submis-
sions not selected as the
approved design will remain
the property of the individu-
als submitting them and will
not be used by TAI.
A committee including
the Region
Presidents/Representatives
of the Development
Committee with review all
drawings submitted. If we
are successful with receiv-
ing something we believe
would provide a suitable
design for the organization,
we would have that selec-
tion approved by the Board
of Directors. The selected
design will then be taken
before the full body for rati-
fication at the national con-
vention July 17-20, 2008. In
the event, a suitable design
is not found by the above
cut-off date, the date will be
extended and new guide-
lines published.
Designs should be sub-
mitted to "email:
ronspriggs@aoLcom
or at:

warded to the appropriate-
