Charles Grapski back in jail


By CRAIG COX and BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporters
GAINESVILLE Political activist
Charles Grapski, 43, was arrested early
Sunday morning after trespassing in the
home of a Gainesville resident. The arrest
comes just two weeks before an Oct. 28
hearing in which Grapski is facing charges
of violating Florida election laws during
his 2007 run for the City of Alachua
commission.
According to police reports, Grapski
went to the home of Mark Kiester at 118
N.W. 21 Street in Gainesville at about 3


a.m. and began to bang on the door.
Kiester, along with John Angel, who
was at the home, told Grapski to leave, but
Grapski became irate and smashed a window
with his fist, according to the report.
Grapski went to a side door and
walked into the house uninvited. He then
asked Kiester to help him find his glasses,
according to the report.
Kiester repeatedly told Grapski to leave
his home, but Grapski refused. Kiester
called the police, who arrived while Grapski
was still in the house.
He was charged with criminal mischief
for breaking the window, and trespassing,


both misdemeanors. For those charges,
Grapski is being held at the Alachua
County Jail on a $10,000 bond: But during
an arraignment hearing, Grapski was not
only held on that bond, but also ordered
to undergo a psychological evaluation,
according to sources.
Grapski had previously been ordered
by the same judge to have a psychological
evaluation after being arrested last year
on charges of battery on law enforcement
officers. The incident began following a
confrontation with former City of Alachua

Pizza pizzazz on tap at Domino's


mini-carnival


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Halloween is
fast approaching, with goblins
and gremlins soon to be running
through the streets demanding
candy. But one local company is
shunning the mischief, instead
opting to have ponies and ice
cream at its grand opening
celebration on Oct. 27.
Freddie Wehbe, the owner
of Domino's in Alachua, is
planning a carnival-style
celebration with dunking
booths, free food, games and
a petting zoo, among other


activities.
The event will last from
4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Towne
Center Crossing in front of
Hitchcock's.
Some 4,000 people are
expected to take advantage of
the free festivities, which are
being held on Monday, Oct.
27, when area children have the
day off from school.
Wehbe said he holds similar
events at the opening of all
his Dominos stores, because
he wants to give back to the
communities that support his
business.
."We're all about the
community," he said, "and I


just want to give the message
that we want to make this city a
better place for everyone."
The approximately 1450 sq.
ft. Domino's offers delivery,,
or.customers can pick up their
orders from the store. The
*business employs .about 25
people, including cooks and
delivery drivers, he said.
Wehbe said he has received
a tremendous response from
area residents about the store.
"I have never seen so much
feedback and positive vibe
about a location," he said. "I'm
very, very impressed with the
response I've received."

BED & BREAKFAST:
Continuedfrom page Al

Style of building will keep traditional architecture


in agricultural, residential and commercial districts.
This amendment would permit new construction
specifically in agricultural districts and not restrict
a bed and breakfast only to renovating vacant
buildings.
The request came about in June 2008 when
architect Duane Anderson approached planning
director Lowell Garrett with a request to build
a bed and breakfast along with an area to hold
events such as weddings and receptions.
"He came last spring and said what he'd
like to do in the agricultural area, but the rules
didn't allow it and it seemed like a reasonable
consideration for an agricultural area where you
have more land and you have the situation where
you can build," Garrett said.
Garrett presented the revised amendment to
the city commission where it was approved with a
unanimous vote.
The -revision outlined restrictions including
a requirement for the buildings to conform to
existing architectural standards to ensure the
building blends in with the design style of the city.
The bed and breakfast would also be limited to six
rooms plus a meeting room that could not exceed
5,000 square feet.
"We looked at other bed and breakfasts and
these standards are pretty consistent," Garrett said.
"It has to maintain the same architectural features


encapsulated by a bed and breakfast, but the board
did not want a motel."
Other restrictions to construction were.
approved to consider the agricultural location of
the building. To prevent problems with noise in
the area, event hours would be cut off at. 11p.m.,
and the accessory building will be limited to
small catering events and meetings and will be
connected to the primary building by a courtyard
or other structure.
SThe second and final ordinance reading is
scheduled for the next city commission meeting
on Oct. 27.
The second and final ordinaiice reading is
scheduled for the next city commission meeting
on Oct. 27, but according to Anderson in a phone
interview on Wednesday, construction may not
be immediate even if the amendment is passed
because his plans are still preliminary.
Anderson would not comment if he had a
planned site for the bed and breakfast or if it-was
a general idea for construction in the area.
"I have plans for the project, but none
that I care to share with you," Anderson said.
"Everything is in a very conceptual stage, and
when I spoke to Lowell Garrett we were just doing
preliminary plans."

Police Chief Robert Jernigan.
Grapski had entered the
Alachua Police Department
(APD) offices to get information
about a closed case, and when
Jernigan told him he had no
further information, Grapski
was asked to leave. However,
Grapski refused to leave, and
Jemigan locked him out of the
building.
Grapski banged on the door,
and police arrested him. Grapski
kicked Jemigan in the leg, head-
butied another officer in the chin
and kicked a third officer in the
hand, police said.
Followinghisfirstappearance
after his arrest last year, Grapski
was taken back to the Alachua
County Jail where he was to
undergo a routine strip search
before entering the general
population of the jail.
However, Grapski refused
to be strip searched, and officers
sprayed him with pepper spray.
He reportedly became
violent, and detention officers
had to place him in a restraining
chair. One detention officer


reported, an elbow injury as a
result of the scuffle.
After eight days in jail,
Grapski was hospitalized due to
deteriorating health stemming
from a hunger strike. His bond
was soon reduced from $60,000
to $1,500 because his healthcare
was costing the county a large
amount of money according
to State Attorney's Office
Spokesperson Spencer Mann'.
Grapski was ordered
to undergo a mental health
evaluation before posting bond,
and he was prohibited from
contacting Jemigan or Alachua
City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr.
He is also barred from returning
to Alachua's government
complex.
Jury selection for last year's
incident is set for Nov. 10, and
the trial should start soon after
that.
By Wednesday afternoon,
details on Grapski's jail booking
had been updated according to
the Alachua County Sheriff's

The Fugitive on DVD


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer

If you would like to watch
an action packed thriller that
will keep you on the edge of
your seat, the Fugitive would be
a great choice.
Dr. Richard -Kimble
(Harrison Ford) comes home
from a conference when he finds
that his wife, Helen Kimble
(Sela Ward), has just. been
assaulted and fatally wounded.
Kimble discovers and struggles
with a one armed man, but the

man escapes. Kimble tries to
resuscitate his wife, but nothing
works and she dies in his arms.
When he is questioned by
the police, he realizes that he
has become the prime subject
in this homicide. In a court
of law, he is convicted of the
murder and sentenced to capital
punishment. Kimble and several
other inmates are transferred by
bus to the jail, where Kimble
has to wait until his execution.
One of the inmates manages
to break free and in a struggle
with the guards, the bus tumbles
onto a train track, where it gets
demolished by an approaching
train. Kimble however is able to
escape.
Marshal -Samuel Gerard
(Tommy Lee Jones) enters the
picture as, the U.S. Marshal,
whose main goal has become
to catch Kimble, but he's just
doing his job.
From this point on, the film
becomes not only a hunt by
Gerard to catch Kimble, but
also a hunt by Kimble to catch
the one armed man and prove
himself innocent. The vast
majority of the action takes
place in Chicago.
This is a great film. It truly
keeps you interested. It's all
played very believable and it's no

surprise that Tommy Lee Jones
has received several awards for
his performance in this film.
I don't know if I would
consider the film family'
friendly, because there is a bit
of profanity and some of the
sequences and violence might be
too scary .for younger children.
It's appropriately rated PG-13.
Outside of that, I really don't
have too much concern about
the film.
The DVD comes with some


charges he's facing for Sunday's
arrest, the six charges for which
he was arrested last year now
also appear, and there is now no
bond set for those charges.
The judge likely revoked
Grapski's bond for those charges
given his most recent arrest.
Sunday's incident is an all but
certain violation of his conditions
of release for the 2007 charges.
It is unclear if Grapski will be
able to participate in the hearing
scheduled for Oct. 28 and 29 at
the Division of Administrative
Hearings (DOAH) inTallahassee,
Florida. There, Grapski is slated
to face three charges of breaking
Florida's election laws.
The Florida Elections
Commission filed formal
charges earlier this year, alleging
that Grapski failed to file
numerous required campaign
reports in connection with his
run for 2007 City of Alachua
commission and 2006 race for
state representative.
The alleged violations all,.
relate to financial contributions
and expenditure reports,

Ask Your Dentist eaots


Allergies & dental health


Q: I have allergies. Should I
be aware of any possible dental
implications?
A: Allergies can have
an impact on your dental
health, particularly if you take
antihistamines for relief. Just as
they help dry up your sinuses,
so too can they contribute to
dryness in the mouth. Anything
that reduces the flow of saliva
can render you less able to
naturally wash away food
particles. That, in turn, can
lead to a buildup of plaque and
a problem with cavities.
As with any medication
you take for any condition,
advise your dentist if you take
an antihistamine for allergies.


Your dentist may recommend
that you increase your intake
of water, or that you suck on
sugar-free candy to keep your
mouth moist. Another concern
is that if you are allergic to
one substance, say pollen, you
may be allergic to other things.
That could include drugs that
your dentist may normally
prescribe, such as penicillin,
for an ailment of an infection.
Allergic reactions can be as
mild as itchy eyes and a runny
nose. However, allergies
reactions .can also be more
serious. You should always
inform your dentist about your
general health and especially
about any allergies.

You can say it. Go ahead, "I told you so

What's this?
Has some singular phenomenon

parents do have IQs greater than that of

*You bet it has. And this one belongs
right up there with landing on the moon,
;except this time it's one overdue step
Tfor medicine-one giant leap for parents
everywhere 'and anyone Nwho has ever-
.suffered a sore' throat, sniffles and a cold.
Parents, and especially mothers, the
lone rangers ofthe home front, have known
'this for years and have been sharing their
maternal wisdom with their children, but
'all too often to no avail. In the face of
cptinuing skepticism from the medical

Parental prognostications about impending illnesses
Fighting an from exposure to the cold were scoffed at, regarded as
me to claim so much phooey and hype, especially from the folks in
white coats.
i." Felt good In the United States, the common cold has been
estimated to cost more than $3.5 billion a year. It is no
surprise then, that enormous amounts of research dollars
ha\e been expended on ways to prevent
and shorten the course of the common
cold Billions of dollars have been spent
on studies such as "Listening to elevator

And the medical community scoffed at

V Now researchers say they can prove
drops in temperature to the body really can
cause a cold to develop, saying that getting

It's about time, and get this, the
Ellen Boukari research to begin the great debate anew

So now this seemingly earth shaking study states
the obvious and what many of us have known for what
seems like forever: Colds may be caused by exposure
to...you guessed it... the cold.
Considering all the angst that parents have suffered,
it's about time that science has finally caught up to what
is everyday common sense.
Parents have been harping for years by telling their
children not to go out in the cold without a jacket, a
sweater, a coat, don't get wet...or you will catch a
cold.
To borrow a phrase from Lucy VanPelt of the
venerable comic strip Peanuts, "I told you so,
blockhead!"
And now our medical friends will have to add one
additional preventative measure to their list of ways to
keep from getting a cold: Don't get chilled.
Because exposure to cold can make you sick.
There.

Don't argue, put on your jacket, slip into a sweater,

*Z High SADD is joining in
4.o campaign funded by the
JEtional Highway Traffic Safety
li ministration (NHTSA) entitled
-Think About It...Red Ribbon
l~eason." The original Red
IRbbon campaign was created
iirr honor of U.S. Special Agent
E-nrique "Kiki" Camerena, who
'was kidnapped and killed after
uncoveringg a multibillion-dollar
drug ring in Mexico. Red Ribbon
-Week celebrates the memory of
ttis special man who gave his
life in the fight to keep Americans
*safe from drugs, symbolized by
*Wearing a red ribbon representing
commitmentt to living drug-free.
SStatistics show that many teen
drivers don't understand the risks
.associated with marijuana and
:especially with drugged driving.
:Approximately one in six high
*-chool seniors in the U.S. reports
divingg under the influence of
:marijuana.
-"Santa Fe High SADD wants
:toget the word out that using drugs
:can destroy dreams and ruin lives,"
:sqid Kaci Lane, Santa Fe High
:SADD president. "Our goal is to


use Red Ribbon Week as a tool to
empower community members to
make healthy decisions when they
are faced with difficult choices."
By working with NHTSA and
other youth safety organizations,
Santa Fe High SADD hopes
to save lives in High Springs
and Alachua by promoting the
choice for a healthy and drug-free
lifestyle. ,
SADD has a week full of
activities planned at the school.
Monday, a red ribbon will be
tied to every car in the school's
parking lot and cups will be placed
in the fence outside the school.
Tuesday the SADD chapter will
"Paint the Town Red" by placing
ribbons, and posters throughout
the communities. On Wednesday,
Oct. 22, the group will host a
health fair at the high school to
show the dangers of drug use,
use of tobacco, and underage
drinking. On Thursday, Ghost Out
will be conducted at the school
where students will be "killed"
throughout the day to represent
how many people die each day
due to impaired driving.
This campaign serves
as a valuable opportunity to
heighten Santa Fe High SADD's
commitment to educating the
community about the risks
involved with drug and alcohol
use.


MOCK ELECTION:
Continuedfrompage A1 Students using authentic voting booths


of voting -- from registration to casting
ballots.
Jackie Michael-Erickson, who teaches
8th grade Social Studies, said she wanted
the kids to have as authentic experience as
possible. .
"We wanted students to have the actual
experience of what the election is like so
they can understand what's going on and
be more likely to vote when they grow up,
rather than just sit back and watch," she
said.
Michael-Erickson said the children
were given voter registration applications
that were printed from the online Florida
voter registration web site.
The registration process required
students to write their address, party
affiliation and other important information,
she said.
"Some of the kids didn't even know
their home address," she said, "so this was
a very good activity in more than one way,


* because they need to know their address in
case of an emergency."
Michael-Erickson said one of the
questions on the registration application
caused a stir among the students.
"There was one section where they had
to check if they had ever been convicted
of a felony," she said. "That question
definitely caught some chuckles."
One of the most noteworthy aspects
of the students' registration was that
the majority of 8th graders registered as
Democrats, Michael-Erickson said.
In preparation for the election,' the
school's media center was decorated with
, banners, bunting and other election-related
items.
Students are required to bring their
voter registration cards to vote, and they
must sign a sheet to receive their ballot.
Pam Carpenter, the Alachua County
supervisor of elections, lent the school
authentic voting booths for the mock


election.
The elections, which began on Tuesday
with 5th grade students, will finish on
Thursday with 7th- and 8th-graders.
Although the results of the election
will not be announced until next week,
Michael-Erickson said school officials
will be assigning each grade level a state,
and the results will be divided so students
can see the difference between electoral
votes and popular votes.
Michael-Erickson said the students
seem to be very into the election, and she
hopes they will learn to stay involved in
their government and community.
"I was very impressed with a lot of the
kids and how seriously they are taking it,"
Michael-Erickson said. "They Wanted to
make sure they did it just right, and during
class discussions the students were very
acute. They seemed to know what's going
on, and that's exciting."

A look at amendments on the November ballot


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
In the weeks leading up to
the Nov. 4 election, Alachua
County Today will be providing
reviews of the six amendments
proposed for the Florida
Constitution.

Amendment 3: "Authorizes
the Legislature, by general
law, to prohibit consideration
of changes or improvements
to residential real property
which increase resistance to
wind damage and installation
of renewable energy source
devices as factors in assessing
the property's value for ad
valorem taxation purposes.
Effective upon adoption, repeals


the existing renewable energy
source device exemption no
longer in effect."
This amendment would
ensure that homeowners who
install renewable energy devices
or make improvements to their
homes to prevent hurricane
damage will not be charged
higher property taxes due to the
improvements.
People who take steps to
improve existing homes will
not have the additions taxed,
but the exemption will not
apply during the construction
of new homes.
Supporters of this
amendment say it will reduce
some strain on nonrenewable
energy sources, because more


people will have an incentive to
move to renewable energy such
as solar panels.
The amendment will also
allow more people to secure
their homes 'against hurricanes,
without the burden of higher
taxes due to increased property
value.
Opponents of Amendment'
3 say that local revenues could
suffer, because the government
will not receive the additiofal-
income from increased property
values.
Opponents also argue the
savings from the amendment
may be minimal for
homeowners.

Welcome to Moe's!


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Alachua residents will soon be
hearing the phrase "Welcome to Moe's" a lot more
often, because the popular southwest grill is slated
to open its doors Oct. 30.
Owner Stan Given has been looking for a site
for his store for several years, and he finally found
his opportunity in the Towne Center Crossing plaza,
in front of Hitchcock's on U.S. Highway 441.
"I've been looking at Alachua for three or four
years," Given said. "Alachua is a business-friendly
and growing community, and I really think Moe's .
will be a good fit for Alachua."
The 2,400 sq. ft. store will have all of the foods
found at other Moe's stores, including nacho chips
Sand the popular "Moo Moo Mr. Cow" kids' meal,
which costs less than $5.


The most popular item at Moe's is the
Homewrecker, which comes with grilled meat,
beans, rice, shredded cheese, pico de gallo, lettuce,
sour cream and guacamole, although customers
are more than welcome to customize their meals
to their liking, Given said.
Given is making last-minute preparations for
the opening, and the store is scheduled to have its
health inspection next week.
The store's 35 employees are currently in
training at the Gainesville locations, which will
prepare them to wrap burritos in the high-energy
environment in Alachua.
Given said the Oct. 30 opening will be followed
by a grand opening in the next few weeks, although
he has not set a date for the eveot.
The grand opening will feature giveaways,
promotional items and the company's magician,
Magic Mike, Given said.

the city's goal to become a safe
walking community.
"I think sidewalks are
something we intended to
have in place for a reason,"
said Mayor Jean Calderwood.
"The sidewalk between the two
connecting driveways, I think
for safety purposes, is absolutely
essential."
A Lowe's' representative
said the company was willing to
donate money to a city sidewalk
fund instead of building the
sidewalks around the store, but
the BOA denied the offer.
The BOA still approved
several changes to the property,
including the reduction in the
number of automobile and
bicycle parking spaces.
The BOA also approved
the elimination of landscaping
between parking spaces to allow
for wider sidewalks leading to
the store.
" Founded in 1946 in North
Carolina, Lowe's has expanded
to more than 1,575 stores, each
carrying about 40,000 products.
The company also offers more
than 500,000 .items through


special order.
Lowe's had more than. $48
billion in sales in 2007, and
the company donated nearly
$30 million to charities and
community events throughout
the United States and Canada.


Some 14 million people shop

The peace of Christ


"Let the peace of Christ rule in your
hearts, since as members of one body
you were called to peace." Colossians
3:15.
Since we have the presence of Christ
dwelling in us through the Holy Spirit we
have been changed. This change makes
many benefits and blessings available
to our daily'lives. Verses 15 through 17
outline some of those blessings.
Today we will look at the "Peace of
Christ" found in verse 15.
We have the peace of Jesus available
to us. This peace differs from having
peace with God. This -is the actual
peace of Christ Himself. The peace He
experienced as He, lived on earth and
now experiences in heaven. The Bible
refers to this peace as the peace that
transcends all understanding (Php. 4:7).
You may ask, "If that is so, why don't I


feel that peace in my life?" The
key is that you are to "Let the
peace ... rule in your heart."
Jesus does not force His peace
on you. He offers this peace to |
you.
The peace of Christ
resonates from the heart to the
mind. The mind is affected
by the visual/physical realm
and by the heart of man. I, ,
When we focus upon difficult REV. L
circumstances, we allow the 1
circumstance to gain control New Lit
over the mind and we smother Chape
the peace of Christ in us.
When focus upon Christ, not
ignoring the problem, we will experience
the release and calming effect of His
peace within us.
The greater the problem the more


LE
TR
fe
l,


we need to focus on the
Lord. This doesn't mean
we should ignore Him
in the calm times. Just
the opposite is true. It
is when we have been
focusing on the Lord
in the calm time that
when a storm. comes
we will not be troubled.
The reality is that we,
ONARD R. by human nature, will
AINA seek God more when the
Community storm blows the hardest.
Gainesville The key is to have Jesus
S. in focus at all times.
Peter illustrated this
for us when Jesus called for Him to come
out of the boat. He confidently exited
the boat focused upon Jesus. If he had
worried about drowning at the point of


exit, he would never have left the boat.
He began walking on the water toward
Jesus. Then Peter took his eyes of Jesus
and focused on the wind and waves. The
wind and waves were buffeting.the boat
before he exited, but now he was afraid.
Why was he afraid? He took his eyes
of Jesus and now his mind was 'being
influenced by his circumstances. Due to
focusing on his circumstances, fear rose
up in him. I wonder what would have
happened if Peter had remained focused
on Jesus.
If you want to experience the peace
.of Jesus, you must be focused on Jesus.
The more you focus upon Him the
stronger you become in Him and greater
the peace within you will grow. This is
not a magical formula. It is Christianity
101. The author to Hebrews said it this
way, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the


author and perfecter of our faith, who for
the joy set before him endured the cross,
scorning its shame, and sat down at the
right hand of the throne of God. Consider
him who endured such opposition
from sinful men, so that you will not
grow weary and lose heart." (Hebrews
12:2-3) How do you focus upon Him
better? The Word of God, prayer and
Christian fellowship are the answer.
These are irreplaceable in our lives. Are
you facing a tough time? Go to His Word
and read the book of Colossians.
Go to Him in prayer. He is waiting
for you and He is never too busy to
receive you.
Find a strong Christ centered'
fellowship.
I promise if you seek Him and His
peace He will not let you down.

SunState Federal Credit Union


& Alachua County Today


Partners in Education


SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua County Today
are partnering to bring you "A Familiar Face." The purpose of this
campaign is to get young people reading. Alachua County Today
will publish an eight-chapter serialized short story, "A Familiar
Face" as part of our Newspapers in Education program. The
newspapers will be sent home with the students after the project
for the week is completed so that parents can share the stories with
their children.


A homework assignment leads Scotty Brown to discover "A
-Familiar Face" in the pages of history and to learn about the role
a boy from Missouri had as an adult in international decisions
of humanitarian aid, war and racial equality. Scott takes from
the lesson a new appreciation for the top job in America and the
realization that even he could someday be president of the United
States.


rV . . .. Y





S- y
,7ap- erl-Sev e- by KaY Hive/Y


Rain fell all through the night. Scptty slept late on
Sunday morning. But the smell of breakfast cooking In
e kitchen was powerful enough to awaken Scotty. He
bounced out of bed in time to eat with his parents.
Sthe afternoon, Scotty returned to his bedroom and picked
p his library books.
tarting at the chapter he had marked in the book, Scotty
saw pictures of President Truman with many soldiers. In this
chapter, Scotty learned a new word segregation. But he
did not really know what the word meant.


)


)










~1


S As Scotty was reading, Mrs. Brown opened his door and
said that Jimmy Powers was on the front porch..


Ready for some activity, Scotty put down his book and hurried
out to'see his friend. Because it was still raining, the two boys
stayed on the porch to work on model planes. Jimmy had
brought his P 38 with him. Scotty worked on a B-52 bomber
he was putting together.
Throughout the afternoon, Scotty and Jimmy worked on
their model planes. The rain continued sometimes hard and
sometimes gene. But the boys stayed nice and dry on the
big porch. They talked about how much fun it would be
to actually fly in the planes they were building. Neither
boy had ever flown in an airplane.
As they worked together on their models, the boys shared
glue and stickers and dabs of paint. Finally, late in the afternoon,
Jimmy finished his plane. Scotty wasn't finished with his big
bomber, but it was late and Jimmy had to go home.
Mr. Brown brought a big cardboard box out on the porch
so Jimmy could carry his plane home without getting it wet.
Carefully, the two boys lowered the P-38 into the box, and
then Jimmy raced off down the street, splashing through
puddles of rainwater. Mr. Brown helped Scotty bring his plane
inside the house and put it on the coffee table. Because he
had only a hide work left, Scotty decided to finish his plane.
It only needed some decals and some wheels.


As Scotry sat on the floor working on his model plane,
'1 he asked his lather what the word "segregation" meant.
Mr. Brovwn laid down his newspaper and said that segregation
) meant keeping people or things apart from each other. He said
Nr fCAI Wek' Cka-aptr Ef.f A Trle


A message from the sponsor: Parents interested in teaching
their kids about finances will find an array of financial literacy
resources available at www.sunstatefcu.org. SunState Federal
Credit Union has financial literacy modules and more foi
children of all ages and adults too. Many of the tools for children


that segregation would mean that Jimmy Powers could not
come to their house and play. Segregation usually separates
people of different races, Mr. Brown explained.
But Jimmy was one of his best friends, Scotty explained. How
could someone not let them play together? That, Mr. Brown
said, was one of the evils of segregation. Black people and
white people could not be friends.
After leaning what the word meant, Scoty was eager to get
back to his books and find out what President Truman did '
about segregation. Scotry hoped Mr. Truman did not believe
I that people should be separated.
