Jacksonville officers are
f searching for the gunman
who used an assault rifle to
repeatedly shot a vehicle
driven by Johnnie Ross
Hoover, 28, hitting Hoover
several times and also
wounding Hoover's daugh-

and her four year old sister.

Johnnie Ross Hoover, 28, with his six year-old daughter and her bad wound on her arm and
other was shot in the leg.
Both were taken to the hospital. Hoover died at the scene.
According to reports, Hoover's daughter was a cheerleader for the Athletic Association
and they were leaving practice. The shooting occurred near the Grand Park Athletic
Association on Division at Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway.
Hoover and the girls were stopped near a traffic light at MLK and Division when a
vehicle drove next to the driver's door, opened fire and drove away.
There are no clues and Sheriff Rutherford is asking for help in solving this crime.
Fantasia rumored to
Fantasia Barrino was
hospitalized last week due
to an overdose of aspirin
and a sleep aid. When
asked if she had made an
error, te American Idol
winner stated8tthat the
scrutiny surrounding her
pending sex tape scandal
made her go into exile and
Fantasia Barrino,26 then toward suicide.
She said, "I wanted out.
I wanted it to be over with -- all of it, all of that..."
She wanted to go to sleep and just be in peace.
Many originally felt that her depression stemmed
from her being caught in the middle of a divorce
between Antwaun and Paula Cook since Paula filed for
divorce on August 4. Others feel that Fantasia might
just be pregnant and are now concerned about the pos-
sibility of the fetus being harmed.
Fantasia apologized and thanked her fans but never
said anything about a pregnancy. Guess she will be
watched very closely for that.

The March on Washington was held in Washington, D. C. on
M~ARICH August 28, 1963, led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It was a
I HINGIONmarch for jobs and freedom and was attended by more than
SWASHING N 250,000 people. At that time, it was the largest demonstration
"" 0 JOBS ever seen in the nation's capital.
E t.REEO M .I We are facing some of the same issues on August 28, 2010 as
WEDA UG 2 we faced on August 28, 1963. There was an enormous amount
O _UG 2 8. of racial tension. Blacks fought for equal rights and had march-
es that were attacked by police dogs and fire hoses. A large
number of the protesters were teen agers and some were even
younger as demonstrations were held all across America because of the many unjust laws. Even though President
John F. Kennedy wanted a Civil Rights Act, the vote was stalled in Congress in the same manner actions are stalled
today when fought for by President Obama.
The 2010 March on Washington on August 28 spearheaded by Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, along with the Tea
Party under the disguise of 'taking back America' and smaller government, is not about freedom or full equality.
What is going on today is designed to make the job losses, anger, fear and insecurities that many feel get blamed
on immigrants, people of color and the Democratic Party.
It is intended to allow the reports by Fox to cover up the real truth that it was big business, Wall Street, the war
started in the past administration under the dictatorship that American endured, without complaining and the
destruction of our environment that caused the crisis that we are now facing after the Democrats and President
Clinton left a surplus budget.
The purpose of the August 28 march is so different than it was in 1963. The goal is to not take back our coun-
try but to take our country further back.
Unite for Jobs and Freedom Local Celebrations
Saturday August 28, 2010
Commemorating the Forty Seventh Anniversary March on Washington for
Jobs and Freedom
A Sincere Thank You to all community groups and individuals who will be partic-
ipating in the Local "Unite for Jobs and Freedom Celebrations" on Saturday August
PROJECT R.E.A.C.H. INC. is mindful of economics hard times that many are fac-
ing and further understand the importance of having localize events. We will con-
tinue to advocate on behalf of the nameless and faceless grassroots
groups/individuals and underserved communities across America.
PROJECT R.E.A.C.H., INC. and local communities/organization across the nation
will collaborate on Saturday August 28, 2010. This Campaign will commemorate
the 47th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and the
theme is; "Unite for Jobs and Freedom". The event is a peaceful demonstration to
promote Civil/Human Rights, economic equality and to shine light on social dispar-
With Poverty, Jobs, Violence, The Criminal/Juvenile Justice System, Prisons, Drugs
and the Racial Climate of today, your participation is "Very Important". You can par-
ticipate by coming together in your local communities; at a Library, Church,
Community Center/Park or your Back Yard to view the 1963 March on Washington
For Jobs and Freedom.
This celebration will act as a buffer between good and bad. Sarah Palin and Glenn
Beck will have an event on August 28, 2010 and we can not allow them to tarnish
the image and history of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
It is important that local communities celebrate on August 28 and tell the real story.

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been
working with impacted communities since day one.
Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to
people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers and
ieams in four states, listening and helping.
Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners,
helping to make them whole.
More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people
affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate
claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
.vill be paid by taxpayers.
BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people
back to the Gulf beaches.
Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in place for
as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.
,And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the
impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.
Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in
mhe region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect,
but ,ve will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal.
We vill do everything we can to make this right.

MAKES DIRECTING DEBUT WITH LAUGHS!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTO COURTESY OF WARNER BROS. PICTURES
Directing a movie in itself is a monumental chore
at best but when it is your first time, a multitude of
extra factors come into to play. Film maker Erik
White makes his major film directing debut with the
hit Warner Bros. Pictures comedy "Lottery Ticket"
starring Bow Wow, Brandon T. Jackson and Naturi
Naughton. The film was #4 at the box office for its
opening weekend with an $11 million dollar gross.
That figure is misleading in terms of how well the
movie actually did due to the fact that it only showed
on 1,973 screens vs. the weekend's #1 movie "The
Expendables" which grossed just 4 Million more but
had a whopping 3,270 screens (1,297 more) to do it
with according to Yahoo Movies!
Whereas "Lottery Ticket" is White's first major movie as a story co-creator and
director he is hardly a stranger to the art of film making. White is a long time, vet-
eran video director/producer with a track record boasting the who's who of videos
including Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Lil Wayne, Mary J. Blige, P. Diddy, Christina
Aguilera, Fabolous and Ludacris just to begin to name a few. White received a
record three BET Viewers Choice Video of the Year Awards as well as an MTV Best
Male Video Award. In addition, White has appeared on MTV, BET and "The Oprah
Winfrey Show." He was also a speaker on a panel at the CMJ Music Conference
alongside the heads of MTV and BET, discussing the state of music video.
White is a native New Yorker having been born in Brooklyn while being reared
in Queens and New Jersey. He is a graduate of CMA in New York with a degree in
sound engineering and afterwards became an in-demand mixer in the big apple.
After a visit to the video shoot set of his uncle, rap video top dog Hype Williams,
White joined on doing second unit work on Hype's videos. This opened the door to
the world of video directing and the rest as they say is history!

RYCH MCCAIN'S HOLLYHOOD
By Rych McCain/ email@example.com
ries Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills during the
"Lottery Ticket" press junket to talk one-on-one about
the film. So what was his main first film jitters? White
laughs, "Man, I think I had it in the worst way. I mean
it's a grander scale, it's a long form, and it's a whole
new environment. Even though I was used to shooting
videos and commercials, it's just bigger. And the first
day of shooting in Atlanta, I had to shoot inside a ware-
house. It poured. It had to be like a million inches of rain
in Atlanta. The first actor I had to work with was Keith
David, a veteran actor. He showed up on set with his
hair cut like George Jefferson (the sit-com character),
bald on top with the hair around the sides and I didn't
think that it worked for the character. So my first day
was coming to the set at a warehouse in pouring rain and telling Keith David that he
had to shave his hair because I didn't like his haircut. So that was jitter times twen-
ty but from then on it got easier but that was like my crash course that day. Great
guy though! He gave me a little hazing because it was my first film but he warmed
up after a while."
What is the difference between videos and a major film? White explains, "Videos
are about information, fast information, keeping someone's attention. Films are
about telling a story and getting people engaged and get them caring about the char-
acters. So for me, that was the biggest adjustment, to go from slap you with infor-
mation (and snaps his fingers in rapid succession) to like having the viewer invest
themselves into what's really going on." As a note of interest for wanna-be divas,
the role Of Nikki that singer Teairra Mari plays actually presented a challenge to
White. He marvels, "I actually thought that the Nikki role would be the easiest to
cast. Coming from videos I thought 'I know all of the video girls, that will be easy.'
But a lot of pretty girls just don't have the range of an actor and Teairra came in, and
over five auditions kept knocking it out and the role eventually went to her."

FINANCIAL CONSEQUENCES OF LOSING A BREAD WINNER
From time-to time, many of you may have considered the cost of burying a loved one. Depending on the type
of service and merchandise that one selects, the cost can vary. However, experience has shown that the funerals
and burials are not cheap and therefore some form of preplanning and perhaps some form of insurance protec-
tion may be helpful to lessen the burden when that time comes. However, the real financial consequence of los-
ing a loved one comes after the burial, especially when the loved one was a financial contributor to the house-
This article will discuss some actual cases to demonstrate why some form of proper planning is important. In
many households, there are two people working and the family's lifestyle and expenses depend on the income of
both of them. If no proper plans are in place, a financial consequence of death can be severe. If you are mar-
ried, in the absence of major tragedy, one of you will end up single.
Case one: A 74 year old man recently died leaving a spouse. They enjoyed a good lifestyle. He was retired
from the military with 20 years of service. At the time of his retirement he still had 8 children at home and there-
fore did not select survivor's benefits which would have reduced the amount of his military retirement. After he
retired from the military at the age of 38 he then worked 27 years for a private company and retired from that job
drawing a pension beginning at the age of 65. There were no survivor's benefits associated with that pension.
He also began collecting Social Security benefits at age 65. The decedent's spouse was also retired collecting a
pension and was also collecting her Social Security benefits. With an elderly couple and 5 sources of income
they enjoyed a good lifestyle until he died. The household lost the military retirement check, lost his pension
from his private employer and his Social Security check. As you can see the household went from 5 sources of
income to only 2. The household expenses were essentially the same. Result: 2 adult children had to move back
home with their mother so that she could make ends meet.
Case two: A married couple had a nice home out in the country on 2 acres of land. The home had no mortgage
and the only thing they owed every year was taxes, insurance, maintenance and upkeep. Because the husband
enjoyed good employment, his wife was not required to work. When he retired he took a lump sum retirement
and bought an annuity which established a stream of income for him and his wife. At age 65 he also began col-
lecting his Social Security benefits. At age 66 he died. The Wife then collected his Social Security benefits and
continued to receive the stream of income from the annuity. But there was a problem. Either she lived too long
or they did not have enough money in the annuity. Eventually the annuity was completely depleted and the only
thing she had left was the deceased's husband's Social Security benefits. Clearly their lifestyle and their budget
after retirement were based on both sources of income, the annuity and Social Security. With the annuity having
been depleted, the husband's Social Security benefit was not enough to pay the taxes, insurance, maintenance and
upkeep on the house, let alone the wife's personal expenses of groceries, utilities, automobile insurance as well
as maintenance and upkeep. In this case there were no adult children to move back home and she had to sell her
lovely home out in the country.
There are different types of plans that one can make to avoid these types of consequences. However, it is impor-
tant to plan early. Another common mistake that people make is failure to plan for a burial when we all know
that death is certain. Even in those cases where people have life insurance, they often utilize it to pay for burial.
They could have had an opportunity to utilize the life insurance toward income replacement for the support of
the survivors if they had purchased some form of burial insurance. It is never too early. In order to avoid these
difficult consequences of losing your loved one, it may be important to sit down with a financial planner, deter-
mine what your long term goals arc, and develop a plan to achieve those goals.

Winners for Democratic Primary
Photos by Frank M. Powell, III
It was an easy win for Congresswoman Corrine Brown who received 80% of the votes to keep her role
serving as the Democratic leader in Washington over her first challenger in ten years civil rights attorney
Scott Fortune. But it is not over, she will face Republican challenger Michael Yost in November so, there
is still campaign work for the community and the congresslady.
The race that many feared was that of Congressman Kendrick Meek in the primary against billionaire
Jeff Greene for U. S. Senator. With Greene having so much money to spend, Meek supporters felt some fear
but the congressman came through with 56 percent of the votes. Of course, there was a clue that many want-
ed Meek to become the Democratic candidate when he became the first candidate in Florida's history to
qualify for a statewide office by petition. When the race was over, his challenger congratulated him and said
that he would donate the maximal amount allowed to Meek's campaign. In November, Meek will face
Republican Marco Rubio who works closely with the Tea Party
and Governor Charlie Crist, who will challenge him as an inde-
There is a lot of work that must be done in Washington to help GR
President Obama continue his efforts for main street citizens.

A good friend of mine. Re\. Greg .ames founded
the "1000 Men Rally", the Florida version of the
Million Man March, three years ago and when he
asked me to write a Gantt Report column for the
event's magazine I was excited and happy to do it.
Recently I've been staying away from marches and
so-called civil rights gatherings because many such
events are advertised as "Black community" activities
but when you get there the audience could masquerade
as a mini-klan meeting. Only the speakers that were allowed to speak were those
that were acceptable to Black community exploiters and oppressors.
Anyway, I decided to attend the Youth Empowerment meeting affiliated with the
rally but I felt, in some respects, way out of place.
While I love Rev. James and many of the speakers and event participators, what
I heard the speakers tell the young Black men in attendance was the same mes-
sage that slave masters gave to young slaves.
"If you learn what I tell you learn, do what I tell you to do and act like I tell you
to act, I'll consider you to be a good slave and I'll give you a god job. Instead of
picking cotton in the hot sun, I'll let you rake leaves!"
The youth were encouraged to get an education if they truly wanted to be "free".
I beg to differ. Going to school and getting diplomas, degrees and PhD's won't
make you free in today's world. Going to school will make you more "trained"!
What our young Black boys, girls, men and women should strive to get is wis-
dom and knowledge!
It's true. Blacks were the first doctors, engineers, astrologers and philosophers.
All of Bill Gates' and Warren Buffet's money can't find and pay a college gradu-
ate that is smart enough to build a pyramid. Black people were "college educat-
ed" before there was such a thing as a college education!
The Egyptian pyramid builders didn't have diplomas and degrees. They had
In America, there are people in every city that have diplomas and degrees that
can't find a job.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with going to school and completing
graduation requirements but you have to be wise even after graduation day.
Corporate crooks really like workers with college degrees but they will kick those
college graduates to the curb as soon as an uneducated, but smart, person comes
through the business door that can make the businessman more money.
We African Americans just have to put the education thing into perspective.
Our society is not an education society, it is a capitalist society and the less edu-
cated self-made millionaire is always going to be more interesting, more liked and
more admired than the fool with the doctorate degree.
Everybody won't go to college. Everybody won't even graduate from high
school. But everybody can be smart. Everybody can make money and everybody
can be a contributor to the Black community and to the society at large.
Doctors, lawyers, athletes and entertainers make good money buy huge houses
and drive expensive cars but leaders of drug cartels make more money, commod-
ity traders make more, inventors make more and many other people make choic-
es that will make them more money than so-called educated folk.
When we have Black community events, let a variety of people speak to the youth.
Young people are not as dumb as you may think they are. Young people can even
teach a thing or two to us older people.
I'm not impressed by titles and degrees, I'm impressed by strength, courage, wis-
dom and sincere community service.
I'm impressed by people that are smart enough to survive even when the modem
day overseers prefer that you be jobless and homeless.
At the next 1000 Men Rally someone should be allowed to speak that can tell
young people that success is the best revenge and a good goal is to be successful
in whatever academic or professional endeavor that you choose to attain includ-
ing or excluding a devilish inspired education in a poor school with poor teachers
and few real opportunities.

DEFINITION: Slow formation of abnormal spongy bone
growth in the middle ear. The growth prevents one of the
small bones in the middle ear from vibrating sound waves,
leading to hearing loss.
BODY PARTS INVOLVED: Middle-ear bones and nerves in the ear that allow
us to hear. Otosclerosis usually affects both ears.
SEX OR AGE MOST AFFECTED: *Both sexes, but twice as likely in
*All ages, but most common from ages 15 to 30.
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS:
*Slow, progressive hearing loss.
*Ringing in the ears.
*Hearing that is better in noisy environments than
CAUSES: Appears to be inherited. 60% of those affected have positive fam-
RISK INCREASES WITH: *Family history of hearing loss.
*Caucasian heritage. Otosclerosis affects to some degree about 10%5 of
all white people.
*Pregnancy, which may trigger the onset.
HOW TO PREVENT: Cannot be prevented at present. Obtain genetic counsel-
ing before starting a family if you or your spouse have Otosclerosis.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE: *Treatment usually involves surgery
to remove the stapes (a bone in the middle ear) and replace it with prosthesis.
The hearing is corrected (or partially corrected) in most cases.
DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES: *Your own observation of symptoms.
*Medical history and physical exam by a doctor.
*Laboratory studies such as audiogram and Rinne
test. (See Glossary for both)
POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS: Total deafness in 10 to 15 years without
treatment. The younger the patient, the more rapid the hearing loss.
PROBABLE OUTCOME: In most cases, hearing is at least partially restored
HOW TO TREAT:
GENERAL MEASURES: *A hearing aid may be used as an alternative to sur-
*See Resources for Additional Information.
MEDICATION: Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics for surgery.
ACTIVITY: After surgery, resume your normal activities gradually.
DIET: No special diet.
CALL YOUR DOCTOR: *You symptoms of Otosclerosis.
*Signs of infection, such as fever, pain, or excessive
dizziness, developed after treatment.

Only the worlds finest and dedicated party poopers could find serious
complaint with this inspired performance by soul crooner Lenny Williams.
The 65-year-old R&B crooner, who came to fame as the lead singer for Tower
of Power in the 1970s and then as a successful solo artist shows no signs of
slowing down in his jubilant return to the concert stage here in Brunswick,
Ga. This concert features songs that made him famous over a Career that
spans 4 decades. Lenny performed many of his charted hits, including "Shoo
Doo FuFu Ooh", 'Choosing You", "You Got ME Running", "Love Hurt Me Love
Healed Me", and "Midnight Girl". But the highlight of the evening, Cause I
love You" (recorded on his solo album) ushered the audience on a voyage
through every range of emotions known to human. This song crosses gener-
ational boundaries, and has frequently been used on "old school" and "slow
jam" compilations throughout the years.
A raw, emotional and powerhouse of a singer Hip-Hop Soul Ms. Raw
from Hollywood, Florida opened the show singing songs from her newly
released CD "Soo Different" Ms. Row creates an energy that makes you

FAMU Mourns the Death of Civil Rights Icon and
Alumna Wilhelmina Jakes Street
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Civil Rights
icon and Florida A&M University (FAMU)
alumna Wilhelmina Jakes Street passed
away at the age 80. Jakes Street is high-
ly celebrated for her role in initiating the
Tallahassee Bus Boycott of 1956.
Funeral service was held Saturday,
August 21, at Forest Lawn Memorial
Gardens Central, 499 Northwest 27th
Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The view-
ing began at 1:30 p.m., and the funeral
followed at 2 p.m.
"We are deeply saddened and devastat-
ed over the loss of one of our trailblazers
and activists for civil rights," said
Carmen Cummings, director of Alumni
Affairs. "Her sacrifice, diligence and
contributions to FAMU, to this community, and to the State of Florida will
never go unforgotten. She will be sorely missed."
Street was born September 14, 1929, in Hardeeville, S.C. As a result
of her father's untimely death, Jakes Street moved with her mother and sib-
lings to West Palm Beach, Fla., where she was raised. She attended FAMU
to major in education. During her time as a student at FAMU, she and her
close friend, Carrie Patterson, a 20-year-old English major from Lakeland,
Fla., were arrested for refusing to move to the back of a crowded city bus.
This courageous act sparked what is known today as "The Tallahassee Bus
Boycott." Many prominent figures such as Rev. C. K. Steele, Rev. Herbert C.
Alexander, Dr. C. U. Smith, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and several others
were actively involved in supporting these students with a systematic
approach to integrating the city's public transportation system.
After graduating from FAMU in 1956, she went on to fulfill her profes-
sional aspiration as a Florida schoolteacher for 33 years. Jakes was an active
member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.; Federated Women's of Club of
Fort Lauderdale; FAMU National Alumni Association; and life-long member of
National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). She
was also a dedicated servant of New Mount Olive Baptist Church in Fort
As a FAMU student, Jakes Street lived on Jennings Street with Carrie
Patterson, who is also credited with igniting the 1956 Tallahassee Bus
Boycott. On January 30, 2009, Leon County officials renamed Jennings
Street in Tallahassee, Fla. to Jakes & Patterson Street in their honor.
During FAMU's 2006 Spring Commencement activities, both Patterson
(posthumously) and Jakes received the University's Distinguished Alumni
Award and its first Freedom Award.
She was married to the late Neopoleon Street. She had one daughter,
Priscilla Lewis (deceased).

My cousin is a stunt dog! He trains
hard and can do amazing jumps. He
works in a tiny circus and he loves
showing off. He says it is hard work,
but that it also feels like play.
Circuses are the greatest shows on Earth! Long ago,
people in Europe who entertained for a living traveled to
villages, fairs or even marketplaces to do their acts. They
would juggle, do acrobatics, perform magic, or show
trained animals. In 1770, a well-known horseman named
Philip Astley enclosed his riding show in a ring in an
outdoor amphitheater. The show was a big success so he
added more acts: clowns, tumblers, a band and trained
dogs. In 1779 he built the first indoor ring and the
modern circus was born!
Today, we also have circuses that are more like theater
performances, blending acrobatics and other feats of skill
with music and storytelling. One group, Cirque du Soleil,
has actors, dancers, clowns, musicians, singers, and even
athletes who do acrobatics, extreme sports and martial arts!
