Nat Glover- Still A Top Source of Help A Legend
Former Sheriff Nat Glover lecturing staff of the Public Defender's Office, a few weeks prior to taking the leadership role as Interim
President of his alma mater, Edward Waters College.
Mr. Nathaniel Glover, former sheriff of Jacksonville, lectured to about 20 staff members of the Fourth Judicial Circuit Public Defender
Matt Shirk's office. His lecture title was "The Challenge of Leadership," a more than appropriate subject in the world today with the eco-
nomic problems, climate changes and growth in crime that many feel is a result of frustration and fear. Mr. Glover started the program
defining leadership; "A leader is someone who has a vision and has the ability to inspire, motivate and encourage people to reach their
potential so they can achieve their personal, career or social goals 'through increased productivity, efficiency and effectiveness."
As the first African American Sheriff for Jacksonville since reconstruction, Mr. Glover made significant changes in Jacksonville. He is
expected to make similar improvements to Edward Waters College, his alma mater, as he takes his seat as president on May 15, 2010.
The people of Jacksonville, during this period have voiced many concerns about the Public Defender's Office. A recent report made by
Channel 4 named the Edward Waters College area as one of the most dangerous in the city. Such a report makes the students and the King
Road area more comfortable now that they know former Sheriff Glover is coming to the neighborhood.
The State Attorney and the Office of the Public Defender have both voiced an extremely low tolerance for crime, in Jacksonville, as many
observe young offenders getting tried as adults. At the end of April, 2010, a 15-year-old was given 70 years for attempted murder as the
judge acted, to prove the point. This is a complicated situation, one of the topics covered by Mr. Glover. The community, including the
professionals feel Mr. Glover will 'handle' it, change the crime rate, che murder raWe and the harsh sentences.
Gospel Musicians Performed, then
Returned and Stole Equipment
The two Georgia gospel musicians played
S and sang very spiritual music for several
churches in Georgia. After the praise and
I -worship service, followed by great soul
food, the musicians would return to the
churches and steal the equipment. It is esti-
Rico lackshar, 28 ndmated that the pair stole more than $100,000
church musicians worth of equipment from churches in the
Augusta, Dublin and the central Georgia area.
Much of the equipment was located in their homes and their cars. They
have been charged with nine counts of theft and burglary.
Arizona Racism or
Lawmakers in Arizona are leaving no stones unturned when it comes
to immigration and racism. Although the claim is their concern for
those entering the United States through Arizona without the proper
papers, a new law was signed less than a month after the Immigration
Law was signed by Governor Jan Brewer. The new law bans ethnic
studies in public schools and will take effect on December 31, 2010. It
bans classes that are designed for a particular ethnic group. According
to the lawmakers, such studies promote the overthrow of the U. S. gov-
ernment and foster resentment toward a particular race or class or advo-
cate ethnic solidarity.
This new law affects the specialized courses for African Americans and
Native Americans. Some believe that ethnic courses are helpful for stu-
dents as they are comfortable when they study materials that include
people who look like them. However, others say ethnic teachings acti-
vate resentment because it makes others feel they have been and still
are, oppressed by white people.
The new bill leaves it up to the state Board of Education or superinten-
dent to decide whether a school violates the law. If it is determined that
a school is not in compliance with the new law, it could lose ten (10)
percent of its state aid each month it is considered to be in a non-com-
Because of the immigration laws now signed by Arizona, several states
have elected to boycott the state. Arizona Continued on A-7

Police Officer Shot Himself and
Placed Blame on a Black Man
It's called MUBM Mysterious Unidentified Black Man.
That is the description a Philadelphia media used to describe
crimes whites don't want to admit to.
Sgt. Robert Ralston, a 21-year veteran of the Philadelphia
Police Department fabricated a story stating he had been shot
last month by an unidentified black man. On Monday, he
admitted to homicide detectives that his report was false. He
further admitted that he injured himself.
Ralston has been suspended for 30 days with a recommenda-
tion for his dismissal. He is married with five children. He
will not face criminal charges but he will be required to pay the
cost of the massive manhunt that was activated as a result of his
false story. Luckily, no one was arrested as a result of his tale.
Vernon Jordan Plays
Vernon Jordan is known as a civil
rights activist, a great attorney and
an investment champion. His spe-
ciality was labor law but he also
was able to get the CBS Network
affiliation for Clara McLaughlin's
station in Longview, Texas.
What the former president of the
National Urban League was not
known for was acting. Yet, he just
vernon Jordan played a role in a Hollywood
movie, The Good Wife.

State of Florida, including Congresswoman Brown
and Gov. Crist, joined the running of a passenger train
on the FEC corridor from Miami to Jacksonville.
Passenger train service was terminated in 1968, three
years before Amtrak was formed. The crowd was
large and the enthusiasm was strong as prospective
travelers rallied for a comeback.

Proverbs spoke of. You cannot sit by the wayside while our men are dying by the
masses. You are the epitome of Black Love. It starts within you. You need to
speak with conviction to let not only our Black Men know, but the world, that you
are the Mothers of this world. You are so powerful. You are so beautiful. You need
to love and embrace every blessing God has given us physically, emotionally and
For all our Black Children :
We need to love them. We need to teach them. We need to stand up for them. We
need to protect them. We need to show them that there are no 'get rich quick'
schemes. We need to tell them that they WILL die trying if they submit to a life of
crime and deceit.
We need to teach our children that no one will love them the way we can. And
being a basketball player, a rapper, or a drug dealer is not reality. It's not realistic
and only a small percentage of people ever make it as a rapper or professional ath-
lete. We need to teach our children that we can be more than rappers and athletes.
We can be the owners of these sports teams. We can be the CEO's of OUR fortune
500 companies. We need to believe in literacy.
'This is the year of empowerment. God will empower us to accomplish things
this year that will be mind blowing'.

During Reconstruction (1875-1890), we had a black president, we had

not have full voting rights, and lost them all. Remember

freed Juneteenth. Voting is not only a privilege, it is a MUST!

Letter from a college student
The other day, a friend of mine visited me in the lobby of my dorm just to chat while her laundry was dry-
ing. As we were chatting, two young freshmen came by. One of the 2 boys wanted to 'talk' to my friend (as in
date). She asked him how old they were, and both of the boys replied 18. My friend and I both laughed hyster-
ically because we are both 22 years old. After my friend left, the young men were still hanging around and
one wanted to know how he could gain her interest. The first thing I told him to do was to pull up his pants!
He asked why, and then said he liked saggin his pants. I told him to come over to my computer and spell the
word saggin'. Then I told him to write the word saggin backwards.
I told him the origin of that look was from centuries ago. It was the intent of slave owners to demoralize the
field workers by forbidding them to wear a belt as they worked in the fields or at any other rigorous job. In
addition, men in prison wore their pants low when they were 'spoken for'. The other reason their pants looked
like that was they were not allowed to have belts because prisoners were likely to try to commit suicide. And,
saggin' pants prevents you from running.
We as young Black people have to be the ones to effect change. We are dying. The media has made a mock-
ery of the Black American. Even our brothers and sisters from Africa don't take us seriously. Something as
simple as pulling up your pants and standing with your head held high could make the biggest difference in the
world's perception of us. It is time to do right by ourselves.
We need to love and embrace each other. No one is going to do that for us. It all comes down to perception.
What people perceive is what reality to them is. We have to change not only the media's perception of us, but
we need to change our perception of ourselves.
Remember all eyes are on you Black Man. All eyes are on you Black Woman.
All eyes are on your Black Child. People point the finger at us and expect us to engage in negative and illegal
activities, to manifest loud, boisterous behavior, to spend our hard earned money in their stores, buying goods
we don't need, or really want. We have allowed not only the media, but the government and the world to portray
us as a 'sub-culture. They have stripped our culture down to the point where the image of Black people is per-
petuated as rappers, athletes, drug users, and consumers of junk food, expensive tennis shoes, expensive cars,
expensive TVs, cell phones and not investing in homes for our families. We are so much more!!!!!!!
To all our Black Men :
It's time to stand up. There are millions of Black Women who want to do nothing more than worship the ground
that you walk on. We are so in love with your potential. We want to have your back, we want to love, support
and cherish every ounce of your being. But with that you have to show that you are willing to be the head of our
households. You have to prove yourselves worthy of our submission. We need you to be hard working...Not a
hustler. We need you to seek higher education, to seek spirituality. We need you to stand! And trust us; we will
have your back.
We know that it gets hard. We know you get weary. Trust and believe that there is nothing that a Black Man
and a Black Woman can't handle with GOD on their side.
To all our Black Women:

TPC's 2010 Charity Celebration
The TPC C lii..-I..,-: was as festive as ever for the
ioast to the S35M of Charitable Giving to the First Coasi
.iiing TPC. Many organizations on the First Cost con-
tinue to benefit from the annual event.
This is also a time for the Media to have a bit ol
relaxing pleasure during TPC Week. With cameras ir
1, ,11, we took the time to network and fellowship with
many we had not seen since last year. It is an event we
I.. t forward to annually.
The Strolling Supper that included: The libations and
food stations that included Beef Brisket, Paella, Cheese
Grits, Oysters on the half shell, Grilled Scallops with
Ri ... Beans, Calamari Salad, and Crab legs along with
ice cream provided an evening of munificent fun and fel-
k 1 .. l ,-,
The Johnny Cool Band performed the 'oldies' that
we enjoy dancing to and resting our cameras and note
pad we indulged ourselves to take the dance floor. We
couldn't let good music go to waste.
Of course we were disappointed that our favorite
Tiger Woods had to withdraw from the tournament.
However, we know he will be back in great form!!
Our granddaughters Maria and Moira Singleton
were eager to get to the TPC with or without their
favorite golfer and they really enjoyed themselves for yet
It was quite a week!!
The Legacy of Mr. Kernaa D.
The First Coast community lost a beloved and
revered person who was not only an outstanding Band
Director he was also a 'father' to so many of his band
members. Mr. Kernaa D. McFarlin recognized his role
and fulfilled that role throughout his life.
As a husband, father, music educator, school administra-
tor, Episcopal Lay Leader and community leader, Mr.
McFarlin was consistently committed. Whatever he was
involved in, he gave 110%.
"Mr. McFarlin brought honor and fame to Stanton
High School over many years through achievements of
his band and the performances of its individual mem-
bers. Concerts were eagerly awaited and well attended
whenever they were presented. Numerous awards were
inevitable consequences of the diligent effort they dis-
played," stated the Keeping In Touch Stanton High
School Faculty Newsletter upon the death of Mr.
McFarlin in 1997.
'While there are many sad stories from the years of
segregation in the South, there were also many great sto-
ries of achievement and excellence that are little know in
the wider community. The New Stanton High School
Band of the 50's and 60's is an extraordinary example of
what could be achieved with few material resources and
Fortunately, much of the music performed in concert
by the band was recorded and gives testimony to the
unmatched quality of music and the director's leader-
ship. When you listen to the music from this product of
segregation, you will recognize that few high school or
college bands today match them.
The band director, Kernaa D. McFarlin, was an
extraordinary leader. His band members remember him
as a great musician and molder of musicians, a great psy-
chologist and socialists who got the most from every stu-
dent. He was a great teacher of students many of whom
owe their success in life to the discipline, structure, char-
acter and confidence that excellence in band brought
One hundred years from now, the citizens of
Jacksonville must hear and know what a group of Black
kids in a segregated school did that represented what
was cultured and refined and not just sport.
In the process of talking to band members, interest-
ing sociological questions will be pondered. How could
so much quality and culture come from so little material
resources? What was it about discipline and structure
that instilled character and confidence? What principles
from that period could the community use today to
improve the lives of students?
Stanton's Band was Jacksonville's best and it is
important to me that this story not be lost from the peo-
ple of the future who should know what good came from
our community. The older I get the more I realize how
great McFarlin was and how extraordinary the Stanton
The question begs to be answered. How good were
the Stanton Bands?" (An Original: Kernaa D. McFarlin
and the New Stanton Band by Paul Wellington Smith)
The answer to the question is: STANTON BANDS

THE VERY, VERY BEST!!

ARTISTICALLY PAINTING FILMS WITH A FINESSE TOUCH!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/ FEEDBACKRYCH(SBCGLOBAL.NET

When you first encounter her, you may mistake
her for an actress because of her sexy beauty and artis-
tic approach to her surroundings. But upon further
examination, the no nonsense business side of her
demeanor will let you know that this lady is deeper
than meets the eye. Sanaa Hamri is a veteran film, TV
and video director whose latest project is the Fox
Searchlight Pictures movie "JUST WRIGHT" starring
Queen Latifah, Common and Paula Patton. Hamri
brings a style and vision to this film that blends all of
the right ingredients with a flare and touch that gels
like well balanced colors and hues on the canvas of a
Born in Tangier, Morocco, Hamri matriculated
to New York where she enrolled at Sarah Lawrence
ing that she do a little work in front of the camera or
other distractions as well? Hamri accepts the beauty
compliment but dismisses the notion of working in
front of the camera. She responds, "I really am an
artist. I love being a film maker and I do think that it's
time having a young female attractive woman director
and it should not be a problem. And that's the whole
thing this movie is about. Your outside does not dictate
who you are in terms of what you can do." In Just
Wright, Leslie Wright (Latifah) ends up going against
her best friend Morgan (Patton) who is super attractive
for New Jersey Nets baller McKnight (Common). It
would seem "look wise" that Morgan had the upper
hand but Leslie's inner beauty and realness ends up
winning the prize.
Growing up in the Muslim country of Morocco
and becoming a movie director in the U.S. was quite a
journey for Hamri. As she puts it, "When I came here
it was a culture shock because women didn't work
while I was growing up. They stayed home and took
care of the family. I was very grateful and thankful that
I went to a really great school, Sarah Lawrence College
in New York because there, they are so radical in terms
of creativity. They want you to do whatever you want
to do. There were no rules there. I wanted to be in that
school. I wanted to go somewhere where I could just be
free to think how I wanted to think and that really
helped as well. Also coming from such a strong culture,
I had a sense of me and wanting to expand myself. And
I say, when you have the whole world stop to hear what
you have to say, what are you going to say?"
Happy B-Day wishes

' College to major in theater arts and psychology. After
graduation, Hamri taught herself how to edit on an
Avid and soon became involved in the music business

among her major projects were several Prince videos
including "Musicology," Common featuring Mary J.

making movies. What type of movies gets her juices

You can have a conversation about the movie after-
wards and really have some food for thought. I just
don't do that (romantic comedies). My last movie, The
Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants II was not a roman-

FAMU College of Law Named Most Diverse
Law School in U.S. for
Second Consecutive Year
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. The Florida A&M University (FAMU) College
of Law was recognized by U.S. News & World Report for having the most
diverse law school in the nation for the second consecutive year.
FAMU earned the outright No. 1 spot with a diversity ranking of 0.66. FAMU
tied for top honors with Texas Southern University the previous year, and
U.S. News also recognized FAMU as the most diverse law school for the
2006-2007 academic year.
"As part of our mission we strive to increase the representation of
minorities within the legal profession and to maintain a leadership position
in racial diversity," said FAMU College of Law Dean LeRoy Pernell. "We are
very proud that for the second consecutive year this ranking acknowledges
our sincere efforts to fulfill this key element of our mission."
According to U.S. News & World Report, to identify law schools
where students are most likely to encounter classmates from different racial
or ethnic groups, U.S. News has created a diversity index based on the total
proportion of minority students-not including international students-and
the mix of racial and ethnic groups on campus.
The index is calculated using demographic data reflecting each law
school's student body during the 2009-2010 academic year, including both
full- and part-time students. The groups that form the basis for the calcula-
tions are African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, American Indians,
and non-Hispanic whites. The formula produces a diversity index that
ranges from 0.0 to 1.0. The closer a school's number is to 1.0, the more
diverse is the student population. Law schools that enroll a large proportion
of students from one ethnic group, even if it is a minority group, do not score
high in this index.
To be included in the ranking, a law school must be accredited by the
American Bar Association. The FAMU College of Law received full accred-
itation from the ABA in July 2009, and was provisionally accredited from
2004 to 2009. Because student-body ethnic diversity data are not consis-
tently compiled and reported as yet for other types of graduate schools,
U.S. News & World Report has prepared a diversity table only for law
The FAMU College of Law was founded in 1949 on the main campus
in Tallahassee. After graduating 57 lawyers, the law school was closed by
the state of Florida in 1968. The Florida Legislature voted to reopen the law
school in 2000 and Orlando was selected as the location. The re-estab-
lished FAMU College of Law opened its doors in 2002 and is now housed
in a state-of-the-art facility in downtown Orlando's Parramore neighbor-
hood. The FAMU College of Law received full accreditation from the
American Bar Association in July 2009, and is ranked number one in the
nation for Diversity by U.S. News & World Report.

Woods said this not something that just happened,

he returned from a five month layoff at the Masters and
that it was not related to the November 27th car acci-

"I now need to take care of this condition and will
return to playing golf when I'm physically able,"
Woods said on his website,tigerwoods.com.
Woods said treatment will include physical therapy,
such as soft-tissue massage, rest and anti-inflammatory
medicine. He said the prognosis was for a full recovery,

JUNE ACT TEST
IOWA CITY, IOWA-Registration is now open for the June 12, 2010 ACT
achievement test. Students who wish to take the college admission and placement
exam must register before May 7, 2010.
The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam. It tests what students
have actually learned in school, not their aptitude for learning. The ACT also meas-
ures what students need to know to be ready for entry-level college-credit courses
based on ACT College Readiness StandardsTM. Every student's results can be tied
directly to these consistent standards.
The ACT has four sections-English, mathematics, reading and science--
and takes about three hours to complete. Students who take the ACT Plus Writing
complete an optional writing test that requires an additional 30 minutes. Unlike
other exams, students are not penalized for guessing or answering all the questions
on each test section. In fact, it is beneficial for test takers to answer all questions
within the time allowed.

spent their whole life reaching for the future. What they have
had within their grasp today they've missed entirely because

is. I'm just saying
