Ex-judge on trial again

Former Miami-Dade Cir-
cuit Judge Phillip Davis who
was acquitted of bribery
charges in 1993 is again on
trial, this time accused of be-
traying the public trust.
Phillip Davis on Monday
went on trial to deny charg-
es that he stole more than
$80,000 of grant money in-

Sixteen years ago while
tearfully testifying in the
Court Broom bribery case,
Davis admitted that he had
snorted cocaine in his cham-
bers. The candid and contrite
testimony w6s seen as help-
ing him win an acquittal.
Davis, 55, was arrested in
October 2005 and accused
of looting county and state
grants to the Miami-Dade
Resident College. He faces
a number of felonies, includ-
ing money laundering and
grand theft. Prosecutors say
he stole more than $80,000.
Davis helped found the
nonprofit Miami-Dade Resi-

dent College in the late 1990s
to teach impoverished inner-
city residents parenting, life
and vocational skills. Davis,

According to investigators,
Davis and administrative

assistant Joan Headley in-
flated employee salaries by
submitting bogus invoices
to get extra grant money,
which they pocketed for
The money was laundered,
prosecutors said, through a
sham corporation, Workforce
Management Inc., created by
Davis to hire and pay work-
ers whom he labeled "inde-
pendent contractors."
First elected to a circuit
court judgeship in 1988, he
was arrested three years later
as part of a corruption sweep
dubbed Operation Court
At his federal trial, the dis-
barred lawyer apologized ac-
knowledging a cocaine and
booze habit. He said: "I'm
sorry, I apologized I let you
down, I let myself down! I
could have been somebody!"
Jurors acquitted Davis of
bribery and extortion charg-
es, saying that his addiction
clouded his judgment.

Non-union workers to take pay cut

Miami Times Special Report

Miami-Dade County Mayor
Carlos Alvarez recently an-
nounced five percent salary
cuts for all non-union em-
ployees. The cuts will come
with benefit decreases as well,
and will affect the 2,843 non-
union employees of the May-
or's office.
The move follows an earlier

move by the county commis-
sioners to impose similar cuts
on three unions.
Contracts with the most
powerful unions remain unre-
In September, the County
Commission was tasked with
closing a $444 million budget
deficit. The largest cut thus
far has been a $208 million
reduction in compensation.

However, since none of the
cuts have been enacted yet,
the county continues to lose
$4 million weekly.
Alvarez said Friday that he
waited to impose the cuts,
despite the fiscal year's be-
ginning in October, because

Does low-income

mean low priority?
tate Attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle was ab-
solutely right when she said of the Dennis Stack-
house arrest; "when you steal from the poorest of
the poor, it almost seems more criminal." Stackhouse was
arrested for allegedly defrauding a real-estate firm and a
non-profit who had hoped to build a pharmaceutical com-
plex in the Liberty City community.

However well-intentioned Fernandez-Rundle's words; they
were just that - words. In fairness to Fernandez-Rundle, it
should be noted that the State Attorney does not determine
who builds what and where, but the lot remains empty.
Whether Stackhouse is convicted or vindicated, the lot will
still remain empty.

There have been promises from commissioners, develop-
ers, and leaders who always have some plan to "revitalize"
these neighborhoods. Those promises have been as empty
as the lots blighting these areas.

Far too often; these plans come to nothing. This most re-
cent letdown is not a unique case. It is just the newest of
many disappointments for some of Miami's most disadvan-
taged communities.

Before the Poinciana Park Project debacle, which the city
has no plans - no means for that matter - of resurrect-
ing, the Lyric Promenade, a $90 million, mixed-use develop-
ment was supposed to "revitalize" Overtown. It was to house
150 affordable rental units to avoid pricing out community
members. It was to house 160 condos, starting at $225,000,
and even a Hilton Gardens inn. It was to begin to restore
Overtown to the vibrant cultural and business center it once

It sounded too good to be true.

It was.

The developers behind the project recanted their prom-
ises; telling city officials that it could not, in fact, be done.
The people of Overtown waited. They still wait .

Miamians in these areas should expect more of their com-
missioners - who do influence who builds what and where.
They should have learned by now to expect less of develop-
ers. Developments like community gardens and park spaces
work because they are relatively inexpensive and improve
the quality of life of residents. In low-traffic areas; these are
viable projects.

Choosing between a multi-million dollar complex and a
park is easy, but the reality is that Miami's low-income ar-
eas don't have this choice. That's for the wealthy areas.

Low-income Miamians can choose between a vacant lot
strewn with beer cans and a homegrown project in which
the community can take pride. Wherever possible, the com-
munity should choose the latter, and stop believing they can
depend upon developers that the city can't seem to control.

from the sweat off of the black
backs of our ancestors. The
Industrial Revolution laid the
foundation to this country's
existence. It wouldn't have sur-

enslavement and exploitation of
our people. Industry is still the

it wasn't just your parents--your

Whoever did the crime's probably
going to be back, and the police
won't always be there.
Where the community can step
up though, is giving the kids
more places that stay open late
and are safe. We don't have a lot
of Planned Parenthood places
either. In Houston, for example,
they're all over the place. And so
you see kids out here three or
four kids of their own. Those kids
are growing up in the streets.
To their credit, the churches
are trying, but they don't have
the resources for such a big job. I
put my kids in New Birth [Baptist
Church} for that very reason.

Miami, Student

They need to teach their kids to
be respectful and honor them-
selves. Part of being respectful is
to respect the

We wholeheartedly support our pastor

Dear Editor:

We are fed up with the nega-
tive allegations, accusations
and false rhetoric concerning
our beloved pastor, Rev. Dr.
Gaston Smith of Friendship
Missionary Baptist Church. We
do not agree with the recent
letter to the editor published
in last week's paper from a so-
called member. The name men-
tioned in this letter is not listed
anywhere in our church regis-
try and appears to be fictitious
in nature.
We understand that people
have a right to their opinion,
but it should never result in
slander and false propaganda.
If anyone in the community is
curious about Friendship, we
welcome them to one of our ser-
vices on Sunday and they can
see for themselves that we love
our Pastor, and Pastor Smith
certainly loves us. The handful
of dissenters are certainly not
the majority.
Pastor has served faithfully

now for seven years. Under his
leadership our membership
has nearly tripled, our church
has been completely renovated,'
hundreds of souls have been
saved (we nearly baptize new
converts every Sunday), we
are more actively involved in
the community now, and hun-
dreds are being fed weekly free
of charge through The Master's
Kitchen. This is only to name
a few of Pastor Smith's accom-
plishments here at Friendship.
We believe that Pastor Smith
and his lovely family have been
and continue to be an asset to
Friendship. Our pastor is a great
preacher, teacher and leader.
He visits the sick, cares for the
grieving, caters to the youth as
well as the senior saints, en-
courages the flock and loves the
Pastor Smith came into this
community working as if he
had always been here, he nev-
er meets a stranger. Just like
any church, there will always
be some disgruntled members,

but what's interesting is Pastor
Smith and Friendship have been
there for many of the disgruntled
when they were in need, and
even under attack Pastor Smith
continues to pray for and love
them. There is nothing biblical
or Christian-like about their ap-
proach to undermine this Man
of God.
Three things are absolutely
First, Friendship has been
blessed over the last 80 years
with assets, property and tithe
paying members that will as-
sure our success for genera-
tions to come. Just like every-
body else, we are feeling the
economic crunch and offerings
are not what they use to be, but
we are nowhere close to be bring
Secondly, Pastor Smith has
not misused any of our church
funds. In fact, time and time
again, he and his family have
sacrificed to enhance the minis-
try. The pastor and we as a joint
board work in tandem to conduct

the business of the church.
Lastly, this so-called meeting
where members were supposed-
ly locked out of the church must
be clarified. Here are the facts.
An official meeting must be ap-
proved by the Pastor and/or the
Board of Directors according to
the Baptist and church policy.
The meeting referred to in last
week's article was not autho-
rized by Pastor Smith nor the
Board of Directors.
Let it be known that we as
a joint board of officers solidly
support our Pastor, "Rev. Dr.
Gaston E. Smith, and pray that
he continues to lead us to higher
heights for may years to come.
A few years ago through Pastor
Smith's vision we adopted the
slogan and continue to believe
it "Friendship is a mighty good
church to join."

Showdown, showtime for District 5

Dear Editor:

Miami Commissioner Michelle
Spence-Jones has been throwing
money, promises and fish fries all
over town in an effort to retain her
place on the commission. Now af-
ter receiving the recommendations
of both the Herald and the Times,
"uniquely qualified" Jeff Torain
is on her heels as he is gaining
in notoriety and serious interest
among constituents. Given that
this commentary is written before

the Nov. 3rd outcome, it is pre-
dicted that there will be a run-off
between these two candidates as
David Chiverton rounds out the
three person race.
If we objectively look at this
particular race, it is clear that it
is less about a competition be-
tween candidates and more about
the indication of where District 5
(primarily Liberty City and Over-
town) is in terms of values, in-
tegrity, awareness of the issues
and what's best in the long run

for the overall community. With
the youth (Black youth) murder-
ing each other repeatedly; pover-
ty, joblessness, broken promises,
corruption issues, etc. continu-
ally looming, will the status quo
win out over what could clearly be
another Barack Obama moment -
this time at the local level? This
is the huge question that will be
answered once the election is of-
ficially over.

is beginning watched more closely

Haitians did not disrespect the President

Dear Editor:

. I normally would not respond
to articles written by citizens.
In an open democracy I respect
everyone's point of view. How-
ever, this time I feel the urge to
correct a letter entitled "Local
Haitians disrespect President
Barack Obama." The writer fo-
cuses on the Haitians that pro-
tested President Obama during
his last visit to Miami advocat-

Status (TPS).
Haitian American voters went
to the polls, with the same en-
thusiasm to vote for our first
Black President. In fact, in Mi-
ami-Dade County, our number

one Black voting precinct is
precinct 135 on the west side of
the City of North Miami. I reside
and served there as the precinct
leader for the Democratic Party
for many years and most recent-
ly during the Obama campaign
last year. An overwhelming
number of Haitian-Americans in
that precinct voted (98 percent)
for our first Black president.
That precinct had the highest
turn out of Black precincts in
the county. Also, I would be re-
miss if I did not mention that,
this is a nation of immigrants.
All of our roots are from the
same mother land. I don't see
the demonstration as a sign 6f
disrespect but a way of urging

The small group of Haitians
that gathered were ,not there to
protest the President. They were
there to raise awareness for an
ongoing issue. Their signs and
messages were not attacks, they
simply asked for the President's
support on a critical issue. They
were exercising their constitu-
tional rights to urge the Obama
administration to act on review-
ing its policies towards Haitians.
This had nothing to do with dis-
respecting the President. We still
stand behind President Obama.
Demonstrating at the event
should be viewed as urging ac-
tion- Last week, many Haitian-
American elected officials trav-
eled to Washington to meet with
White House officials and mem-

Florida. In many ways it is more
important than even the mayoral
election due to the history of this
area's neglect. It is important that
as many people as'possible vote.

one of special interest or personal
greed. Remember . . . God is al-

bers of Congress to see how
relations between the US and
Haiti can improve. We live in a
democracy and as I stated be-
fore, everyone's right of freedom
of speech should be respected.
Therefore, I respectfully disagree
with the writer who missed the
point the Haitians were mak-
ing. Instead the writer chose
to miss-characterize their view
with baseless arguments about
Haitian illegals breaking the
law. As an elected official, I be-
lieve anyone who breaks the law
should be punished to the full-
est. However, I do not agree to
allow any member of our com-
munity to state a claim without
any real facts.

It's all about the money - and the County money is good. A

No; because
the commu-

very much. �4
The people do-

change that
by coming to

fact that they're killing their own
race off. But I don't consider the
people doing the shootings part
of the community. It's two differ-

The community is afraid to go
to the police. Nobody wants to
die for knowing something. So
there's not much the community
can do, but maybe there's more
the police can do. The commu-

M ost people think that their self worth is measured by their
religious beliefs, level of education and their ability to provide

Does the community bear any responsibility for situations

Chevrolet and GMC drive GM sales increase

DETROIT - A strong perfor-
mance by GM's four core brands
- Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and
Cadillac - resulted in GM U.S.
October sales of 177,603 vehicles,
up 4 percent from last October,
the company's first year-over-year
gain since January 2008. Total
sales increased 13 percent when
compared with September. The
four brands accounted for about
95 percent of GM's retail sales, an
increase of 10 percentage points
compared to the prior year.
"We're very pleased with con-
sumer acceptance to our newest
cars, crossovers and trucks," said
Susan Docherty, GM vice presi-
dent, U.S. Sales. "While we have

more work to do, we are making
progress and will continue our fo-
cus on delivering vehicles and a
sales and service experience that
brings consumers to Chevrolet,
Buick, GMC and Cadillac - and
keeps them coming back."

Total GM sales increased 4

Atlanta. polls signal racial shift

Councilwoman with big lead would be first white mayor in over three decades

By Corey Dade

ATLANTA - More than three
decades after Maynard H. Jack-
son Jr. became the first Afri-
can-American mayor of a major
Southern city here, the era of
uncontested Black leadership
in the cradle of the civil-rights
movement is facing its first true
test: A white city councilwom-
an leads the mayoral race by
a wide margin just days before
the Nov. 3 election.
Recent polls show Mary Nor-
wood, a fiscal conservative who
lives in a heavily white, wealthy
section of Atlanta, with sup-
port ranging from 39% to 46%
of likely voters. That puts her
potentially within striking dis-
tance of winning outright next
week or heading into a runoff
with one of the two most promi-
nent African-American candi-
dates, City Council President
Lisa Borders and former state
Sen. Kasim Reed, both of whom
have struggled to gather sup-
port from even 25% of voters.
Most striking in Ms. Nor-
wood's numbers is her level of
support among widely fractured
African-American voters. An In-
siderAdvantage poll on Oct. 16
showed Ms. Norwood leading all
candidates among Black voters,
with nearly a third of Blacks
supporting her.
Ms. Norwood's position re-
flects demographic changes
that are scrambling the estab-
lished political order in parts of
the South as well as moderating
racial attitudes that increasing-
ly have left Blacks, whites and
other ethnicities open to votes
that defy conventional racial
Such contrarian politics
have become increasingly com-
mon in the South. Earlier this
month Memphis, Tenn., elected

its second Black mayor, A.C.
Wharton, who endorses a plan
to merge the city and surround-
ing Shelby County governments
-- a move that would eliminate
a Black voting majority in Mem-
phis and boost the strength of
other minorities.
In last year's presidential
election, Barack Obama gar-
nered enough white votes in
North Carolina and Virginia
to become the first Democrat
to win a Southern state since
1976 other than Bill Clinton's
1992 win in his home state of
An August poll of Alabama
voters showed U.S. Rep. Artur
Davis, who is Black, leading all
Democratic primary candidates
for governor. If successful, he
would be the state's first Black
Among the Southern cities
where African-American politi-
cal dominance arose from the
1960s civil-rights movement,
Atlanta is the crown jewel. It
has elected a line of mostly ac-
claimed Black mayors, nursed
a reputation for racial tolerance
and is regarded as a mecca for
aspiring Black professionals.
But the city's population,
while still majority Black, has
grown steadily more white in
the past decade, driven by the
departures of Blacks from pub-
lic housing now demolished and
the flight of upwardly mobile
Blacks to new suburbs.
As a result, Black political
strength has dispersed across
the metro region, which has
more than five million resi-
dents. The Black majority has
declined to 56% from 67% in
the past decade, and the pro-
portion of whites has grown to
36% from 30%.

could become the first majori-

While race has hovered in the
background of the campaign,
the leading candidates have
sparred mostly over who could
most effectively attack an ap-
parent spike in crime and im-
prove the finances of city gov-
ernment. The race has become
largely a referendum on who
voters believe would most effec-
tively address those issues.
Ms. Borders and Mr. Reed
have also accused Ms. Norwood
of being a Republican and too
conservative for left-leaning At-
lanta. Ms. Norwood has steered

away from the questions, saying
she has voted for candidates of
both parties but is a "commit-
ted independent."
Ms. Norwood, 57 years old,

Toys of the world celebrate power of play

(NewsUSA) - For most children
in the United States, finding a toy
with which to play is hardly a hard-
ship. A trip to the toy store with
some allowance money, or a holi-
day or birthday, provides plenty of
action figures, model cars, dolls,
talking robots and video games.
But many children in developing
countries around the world can-
not afford to buy any toys -- and
these children often show ingenu-
ity and creativity in making their
own toys.
To celebrate the power of play,
ChildFund International has cre-
ated a touring exhibition titled,
"The Power to Play: From Trash
to Treasure," which displays 350
handcrafted toys created by chil-
dren around the world. Some of
the toys are easily recognizable,
like soccer balls and kites. Others
are unique to their place of origin,
or reveal the social, economic and

political conditions in which their
makers are growing up.
"Our traveling exhibition high-
lights the resourcefulness and cre-
ativity of the children who created
the toys," says Anne Lynam God-
dard, president and CEO of Child-
Fund International. "Thousands of
viewers will gain new appreciation
for the power of play and its role in
childhood development."
Play- proves essential to chil-
dren's healthy development, help-
ing kids solve problems, test new
ideas and gain friendships. So,
what kind of toys can viewers
expect to see? Warsito and Ade
of Central Java, Indonesia. make
stilts to play a popular game,
called "egrang."
"It's an exciting and unique
game, and I love playing it," says
Warsito. "You can tell when a child
is an expert in playing this game.
He or she must have a good sense

of balance and high skill to play
Tyrel of Dominica has made his
own toys since age eight. "I loved
playing with toys, but my parents
were not always able to afford
them, and the ones that they oc-
casionally bought did not hold to-
gether for long."
Nollan, a 13-year-old from Hon-
duras, fashions a toy called "The
Trapeze Artist," which he makes
once a year and often lends to sib-
lings and friends.
These unique toys are just a few
examples of the types of items in
ChildFund International's Power
to Play exhibit, which will be trav-
eling to major museums and other
locations across the United States
through 2011.

David Jenkins walks with his head held

in the streets that has claimed the lives of
many, even his own.
Jenkins is the father of Sherdavia Jen-

Last month, Damon Darling, one of the
two men involved in the shooting, was
found guilty of manslaughter for the kill-

almost four hours for over two days then
came to unanimous decision.The other
suspect in the case, Leroy Larose, pleaded
guilty and testified against Darling. Larose
will serve seven years in prison followed

by 10 years of probation. Darling, on the
other hand, faces up to 30 years in prison

University of Md. Blacks demand apology for slavery
By James Wright Slavery and UM Early History" The University of Maryland

In light of a recent publica-
tion that strongly indicates
that slaves helped to built the
University of Maryland, Col-
lege Park, without any type of
acknowledgement, some Black
students have called for Presi-
dent C. Dan Mote, to issue a
formal apology for the institu-
tion's use of slave labor.
The university held a forum,

last month and remarks were
made by Mote, noted historian

The University of Maryland was founded by wealthy plantation owner Charles Calvert as
the Maryland Agriculture College in 1856. Classes began at the institution in 1859 and,
with the norms of 19th century America, excluded women and Blacks.

The study, "Knowing Our His-

It's flu season, but don't forget about colds

(NewsUSA) - With the widespread
concern about the H1Nl virus, also
known as swine flu, many Americans
might forget about another threat --
the common cold.
While colds often prove less serious
than the flu, they result in days of mis-
ery - not to mention missed work and
school. And with today's busy lifestyles
and economic woes, no one can afford
to get sick with a cold.

The common cold shares symptoms
with the flu, including sore throat, na-
sal congestion, sneezing, and stuffy or
runny nose. But unlike the flu, colds
do not usually cause fever, fatigue,
body aches or dry cough. That's be-
cause the cold and flu are caused by
different viruses. While influenza vi-
ruses cause the flu, it's the rhinovirus,
which comes in more than 100 strains,
that results in the stuffy, runny misery

that is the common cold.
As with the flu, the best treatment
against the cold lies in being proactive.
Dr. Tim Tucker, Pharm.D., FAPhA, im-
mediate past president of the Ameri-
can Pharmacists Association and
owner, City Drug Company, says that,
"Staying as healthy as possible proves
to be the key. That means exercising,
sleeping well and taking a daily multi-
vitamin. Adequate nutrition can help

the immune system fight off infection,
so eat well and include plenty of nutri-
ent-rich, balanced foods in your diet.
Drinking water will help flush toxins
out of the body, while also improving
"Hygiene also plays a role, so take
care to wash hands frequently, avoid
touching the eyes, nose or mouth, and
frequently clean oft-touched surfaces,
like keyboards and door knobs," he

But if you already feel a cold com-
ing on, all is not lost -- some products
can reduce the length of the common
cold when taken at the first sign of
symptoms. For example, Dr. Tucker
explains that zinc products, such as
Zicam Cold Remedy, can reduce the
duration and severity of your cold if
taken within 24 to 48 hours after the
onset of symptoms.

Middle age

not too

late to lose


By Nanci Hellmich

WASHINGTON - Take heart,
middle-aged female dieters: It's
not too late to lose a significant
amount of weight if you make
the right changes and stick with
them, according to research pre-
sented at the annual meeting of
the Obesity Society.
Women who are committed to
make changes can lose 20 pounds,
says Karen Foster-Schubert of
the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Re-
search Center in Seattle.
They need to write down what
they eat, prepare food at home
instead of eating out and make
weight loss a priority, says lead
investigator Anne McTiernan, di-
rector of the Prevention Center at
Fred Hutchinson.
Researchers recruited 439 over-
weight or obese postmenopausal
sedentary women, average age 57,
average weight 185. They were as-
signed to one of four groups: diet
only, exercise only, diet and exer-
cise, or no lifestyle changes.
Participants in the diet-only
group worked with registered di-
etitians weekly for six months,
then monthly for six months to
change their eating habits. They
learned how to keep food records,
shop for healthful foods and pre-
pare lower-calorie dishes.
Those in the exercise-only group
were encouraged to exercise mod-
erately, working up to 45 minutes
of aerobic exercise five days a
week. Three of those weekly ses-
sions were supervised by exercise
The third group was given both
the diet and exercise components
of the plan. The fourth group was
given no diet or exercise guidance.
After a year, the diet-and-exercise
group had lost about 21 pounds;
the diet-only group 18 pounds;
and the exercise-only group al-
most 5 pounds. The control group
did not lose a significant amount.
Although men were not included
in the study, they too might lose
weight if they made such changes,
Foster-Schubert says.

house calls


By Pauline Arrillaga

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The doctor
doesn't look like much of a crusader,
bent over the frail frame of 90-year-
old Alberta Scott.
He has a lavender stethoscope
strung round his neck and some seri-
ous bedside manner at work on this
stubborn nonagenarian who wants
to be anywhere but where she is: in
a nursing home bed, hoping to heal
and get back home.
"Squeeze my hand," Dr. Peter Bol-
ing prods. "Squeeze my hand. Come
on. Hard!"
This is Boling's day job, providing
medical care to some of Richmond's
oldest' and sickest patients. A geri-
atrician and head of general medicine
at Virginia Commonwealth Universi-

ty Medical Center, he visits nursing
home patients with a smile, and he
leads a teamof specialists who take
to the road, medical bags in hand,
to see patients where and when they
need it most _ in their own homes,
before a crisis lands them in the ER
or a nursing facility.
Boling and his team make house
And now he is on a mission: To con-
vince Congress that the old-fashioned
house call could be a fresh answer to
the modern-day health care reform
There are house-calls programs
here and there. San Diego. Boston.
The Veterans Health Administra-
tion cares for thousands in their own
homes, saving money by reducing
unnecessary hospitalizations and

emergency room visits.
But Boling wants to bring house
calls to the masses _ up to 3 million
of the most high-risk, high-cost Medi-
care patients in the country. The idea
is not just cost-savings, but to pro-
vide a financial incentive to persuade
more doctors to return to this kind of
work. Mostly, it's about people like
Alberta Scott and the questions that
first came to Boling's.mind when he
heard she'd been admitted to an in-
stitution for treatment of a blood in-
In a few weeks, if all goes well, can
she go home? If so, who will take care
of her?
At 55, Boling has a vague memory
of his own pediatrician standing in
the kitchen of his childhood home.
It's not an image many of us can con-

jure in an era of overcrowded ERs and
specialty clinics.
The visiting doc went out not long
after the horse and buggy, as tech-
nology advanced and institutional-
ized health care became the norm. In
1930, house calls accounted for 40
percent of doctor-patient encounters.
Today, about 4,000 of the nation's
800,000-plus doctors make house
calls a substantial part of their prac-
tices, the American Academy of Home
Care Physicians estimates.
Boling was just a young doc himself
in 1984 when a mentor persuaded
him to spend half his time doing clinic
work, and the other half developing a
house-calls program. He hung a giant
map of Richmond on his office wall
and began identifying patients Please

Study: Kids fight fat when they sleep late

By David Freeman
HealthDay Reporter

Letting children sleep late on week-
ends and holidays might help them
avoid becoming overweight or obese, a
new study suggests.
Researchers in Hong Kong found that
children who got less sleep tended to
be heavier (as measured by body mass
index, or BMI) than children who slept
more. But among children who slept
less than eight hours a night, those
who compensated for their weekday
sleep deficit by sleeping late on week-
ends or holidays were significantly less
likely to be overweight or obese.
The study, which confirmed previ-
ous research linking sleep deficits to
obesity in children, also found that,
on average, children slept significant-
ly longer on weekends and holidays
than on school weekdays. However,
the overweight children tended to get
less weekend/holiday sleep than their
normal-weight peers.
The researchers didn't determine
why obese and overweight children
were less likely to sleep late on holi-
days or weekends, but noted that
they tended to spend more time doing
homework and watching TV than their
normal-weight peers.

Biological factors might also play
a role in the compressed sleep cycle,
they said.
"There's a lot of evidence linking
short sleep duration to higher body
mass," said Kristen Knutson, assistant
professor of medicine at the University
of Chicago, who was not involved in
the study. "What's unique about this
study is that it's the first to show that
extending sleep on weekends may help
with avoiding weight gain."
Still, the researchers urged cau-
tion in the interpretation of their
findings, acknowledging that "an ir-
regular sleep-wake schedule and in-
sufficient sleep among school-aged
children and adolescents has been
documented with a variety of serious
repercussions, including increased
daytime sleepiness, academic dif-
ficulties, and mood and behavioral
The precise nature of the link
between short sleep duration and
obesity remains unclear, said Mary
A. Carskadon, professor of psychia-
try and human behavior at Brown
University's Alpert Medical School
in Providence, R.I., and director of
chronobiology at Bradley Hospital
in East Providence.
"Evidence has shown that there

are changes in satiety and in lev-
els of the hunger hormones leptin
and ghrelin," Carskadon said. "But
there's also evidence that kids who
are not getting enough sleep get
less physical activity, perhaps sim-
ply because they're too tired. It's
just not cut-and-dried."
The study authors noted that "re-

Make the healthy diet choice the easy choi

By Nanci Hellmich

WASHINGTON - Dieters can
boost their weight loss if they
clean up their act at home and
get a partner to lose weight with
them, a new study shows.
If you want to trim down, you
should set up your home to
make the healthy choice the easy
choice, says Amy. Gorin, assis-
tant professor of psychology at
the University of Connecticut.
She presented her research
Wednesday at' the annual meet-
ing of the Obesity Society, a

group of Weight-loss researchers
and professionals.
Gorin and colleagues recruit-
ed 201 overweight and obese
people and divided them into
two groups.
Participants in one group got
a six-month behavioral weight-
loss program that emphasized
a low-fat, low-calorie diet and
moderate intensity physical ac-
tivity. They met weekly with
weight-loss experts and learned
how to keep food journals and
work through tempting eating

The other group got the same
weekly weight-loss program
with professional help. They
* Had an overweight partner
participate in the weight-loss
program with them. This was
either a spouse or another adult
who lived in the same home.
* Were given a piece of exer-
cise equipment (a treadmill or
exercise bike), bathroom scales,
a full-length mirror, healthy
cooking and fitness magazines
and smaller dinner plates that
were about the size of salad

* Were encouraged t
less television.
At the end of six moi

Students demand recognition of slavery

continued from 8B

discussed during the building
of the institution. This was par-
ticularly relevant because the
school's first president, Benja-
min Hallowell, was opposed to
slavery. He was told by Calvert
and the board of trustees that
slave labor would not be used
in the construction of the uni-
versity. Hallowell resigned one
month into his term as presi-
dent and while the publication
does not say directly that it
was tied to slavery, there is an
inference of it.
"...although the evidence
points elsewhere," Berlin said.
"Slavery was the elephant in
the room, which everyone rec-
ognized but no one could ac-
knowledge. Political necessities
may have forced both Calvert
and Hallowell to avoid the di-
rect discussion of slavery, but
slavery's omnipresence-as a
source of wealth, status and
labor-made it clear that slaves
were no silent partner in the
establishment of the Maryland

Agriculture College."
In this context, Black stu-
dents concerned about the
issue have called for Mote to
apologize for the use of slave
labor in the building of the
University of Maryland.
Amberly Ellis, 20, also from
Baltimore, Md., is an African
American Studies major who
agrees that the role of slaves
should be included in litera-
ture regarding the founding of
the university. She said that
Mote should issue a formal
"Black history is a part of
this campus," she said. "They
[the university] should have
recognition and classes about
what this campus was like
during slavery."
Mote, in a statement, com-
mended the work of Berlin
and his students and he said
that the university had taken
an important step in recogniz-
ing the contributions of Afri-
can Americans in the school's
early years.
"Slavery was unequivocally
an abhorrent practice. As in-

heritors of a society in which
slavery was practiced widely,
we all share in the benefits and
the tragedies of that era. Be-
cause of this legacy, the uni-
versity shares in the profound
regret for the suffering and in-
justices perpetuated upon Af-
rican Americans," he said.
Mote's statement does not
include the word "apology" --
and that's what disgruntled
Black students want to hear.
Chicquelo was contacted by
the Informer but had no com-
ment regarding this article.
The first Black undergradu-
ate admitted to the university
was Hiram Whittle in 1951 and
Parren Mitchell, who would
later become a congressman
who represented Baltimore.
Mitchell received his graduate
degree in 1952.

Interracial children learn two cultures

She is white. She married Mar-
ion White, who is black, more
than 40 years ago in Washing-
ton, D.C. At the time, Louisiana
still outlawed interracial mar-
riage; the U.S. Supreme Court
ruled in 1967 that such laws
were unconstitutional.
News about Bardwell "did
bring back memories of it be-
ing against the law," she said.
"'You would think that by now,
especially with all the interracial
couples, they would have put
that behind them."
Etha Simien Amling of Opelou-

white German, Juergen Amling,

hearing about the Bardwell in-

she and her husband mistreat-

people anymore," she said.
Doris White agreed that times
have changed.
Prejudice against interracial

couples and biracial offspring
still exists, but not like 40 years
"Things are changing, but
remember, they're changing
slowly. That means that a lot of
prejudice still remains," said Di-
anne Mouton-Allen, a member
of Lafayette's diversity commis-
sion and Lafayette chapter di-
rector of the National Coalition
Building Institute.
Incidents like the Bardwell
one make it seem like prejudice
against interracial couples is
greater in Louisiana and in the
Sputh, but it's not, she said.
Racism is just more covert
"Someone in another place
may refuse for exactly the same
reasons, but they won't actually
tell you that, so it's more diffi-
cult to pinpoint," Mouton-Allen
Her reaction to the Bardwell
incident was, "Oh. Someone
actually admitted it."

As aid shrinks, more 'stuck' for day care

Many low-income families feel squeeze

as subsidies dry up and some providers

are forced to raise fees or shut down

By Marisol Bello

For a month, Stephanie Tor-
res has been phoning and filing
paperwork, trying to get state
help to keep her daughter in a
Glendale, Ariz., day care cen-
The single working mom says
she can't foot the $115 weekly
day care bill on her $14-an-
hour part-time office job.
Arizona has rejected her ap-
plication, one of thousands of
denials as the state reduces day
care subsidies for low-income
working parents.
"People like me, we're strug-
gling," Torres says. "Take some-
thing else away, not child care.
It's so crucial."
As budget problems worsen,
states are tightening rules for
subsidies, eliminating enriched
child care programs, raising fees
that parents and providers pay,
and halting new subsidies.
"The real impact of these
cuts is on families," says Wil-
liam Eddy, executive director
of the Massachusetts Asso-
ciation of Early Education and
Care. "Parents are forced to find
makeshift care, one day with a
neighbor, one day with an aunt,
in order to get to work."
At least nine states have
growing waiting lists for subsi-
dies, says Helen Blank, director
of leadership and public policy
with the National Women's Law
"It's a fragile system," says
Blank, who tracked state child
care subsidies in a report last
month. She says states are hav-
ing to "make choices in terms
of who you help, what you pay
providers and what you charge
States use federal and state

funds to help low-income work-
ing parents pay for child care.
Without aid, child care costs
normally range from $4,000 to
$14,000 a year, says Eric Karo-
lak, executive director of the
Early Care and Education Con-
sortium in Washington, D.C.
"When you ask parents, their
biggest challenge is child care,"
Blank says. "Parents are more
productive knowing their chil-
dren are safe. It's common

* Ohio eliminated a preschool
program that served 12,000 3-
and 4-year-olds, saving $128
million, says Terrie Hare, chief

care subsidy eligibility require-
ments for new families. Now the
qualifying threshold income for
a family of two is no more than
$1,800 a month, down from
* Massachusetts stopped en-

state's waiting list was 21,000

ary. .
* California eliminated a sub-
sidized year-round child care
program that served 13,000 5-

and during the summer, saving

ley, education administrator in

parents pay to enroll more than
one child. They used to pay up
to $10 a day for the first child,

ter, Mass.

depending on their income,
then no more than $5 for each
additional child. Now the cost
is up to $10 a day for each
child. The state stopped enroll-
ing new families for subsidies,
creating a waiting list that has
grown to 8,600 children, says
Stephen Pawlowski, chief fi-
nancial officer for the Depart-
ment of Economic Security.
The cuts would have been
deeper if not for $2 billion in
federal stimulus money for
child care subsidies, Blank
and state administrators say.
Arizona is taking an ad-
ditional step that providers
say will further hurt families.
Starting Jan. 1, the state plans
to increase child care licens-
ing fees. A provider currently
pays a flat fee of $150 for three
years. Now providers' fees will
be set based on the number of
children in their care. A larger
center with capacity for 150
children or more, such as Tots
Unlimited in suburban Phoe-
nix, will pay $13,442 for three
Tina LeBaron, director of the
Tots center where Torres sends

her daughter, says the higher
fees will force some providers
out of business and cause oth-
ers to raise prices.


Either way,. she says, par-
ents lose.
"Our families can't afford
it," she says. "They're already

having a hard time paying for
diapers and other expenses for
their kids. ... A lot of families
have to turn their kindergart-
ners into latchkey kids."
Torres, 27, received a state
grant that paid the entire cost
of child care for six months
for daughter Olivia, 4. The aid
ended Oct. 9. For now, Torres
has her daughter in day care
part time, three days a week.
It costs $90 a week, which she
says is still a hardship. Friends
are babysitting Olivia the other
"I really want her in day care,
but I'm stuck," says Torres, an
office assistant at a finance
company. She says having her
daughter at a day care center,
where she is learning and in-
teracting with other children,
is better than having her in a
babysitter's home watching
TV. Torres is looking for high-
er-paying work so she can af-
ford day care.

South African leader rallies

nation to fight AIDS crisis

Regrets predecessor's stance

By Celia W. Dugger

mination of his party's major
shift on AIDS, a disease that
has led to plunging life expec-
tancies here, President Jacob
Zuma last week definitively re-
jected his predecessor's denial
of the viral cause of AIDS and of
the critical role of antiretroviral
drugs in treating it.
Almost 10 years to the day
after President Thabo Mbeki
first suggested that AIDS drugs
could pose "a danger to health"
in an Oct. 28, 1999, speech in
Parliament, Mr. Zuma declared
Thursday in the same chamber,
"Knowledge will help us to con-
front denialism and the stigma
attached to the disease."
In a country that now. has
more H.I.V.-infected people and
annual AIDS deaths than any
other, Mr. Zuma's clarion call for
a battle against the disease, six
months into his term as presi-
dent, led to rejoicing among ad-
vocates who had long sought
such national leadership.
Mr. Zuma said in his address:
"All South Africans must know
that they are at risk and must
take informed decisions to re-
duce their vulnerability to infec-
tion or, if infected, to slow the
advance of the disease. Most
importantly, all South Africans
need to know their H.I.V. status,
and be informed of the treatment
options available to them."

After Mr. Mbeki's ouster from
the presidency a year ago by his
own party, the African National
Congress, which has governed
the country since 1994, a care-
taker president appointed a new
health minister, Barbara Hogan,
who said in an interview that
what she called "the era of deni-
alism" was over.
Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi, her suc-
cessor as health minister under
Mr. Zuma, has accepted the
government's responsibility for


South African President

past failings and begun charting
a more comprehensive approach
to the AIDS crisis here.
Plain-spoken national leader-
ship has proved critical to com-
bating the disease in Uganda,
Kenya and Botswana -- and
disastrous where it was lack-
ing, as here. Harvard research-
ers estimated that South Africa
could have prevented 365,000
premature deaths had it acted
sooner to provide antiretroviral
drugs to treat people with AIDS
and to prevent H.I.V.-positive
women from infecting their new-
In his speech, Mr. Zuma laid
out the horrifying toll of AIDS.
Among the statistics he cited
was that overall deaths regis-

tered in South Africa in 2008
jumped to 756,000 from 573,000
the year before, which he said
posed the possibility that deaths
annually could eventually out-
number births.

He also said life expectancy
for South African men is 51,
compared with 70 in Algeria and
60 in Senegal.
"These are some of the chilling
statistics that demonstrate the
devastating impact that H.I.V.
and AIDS is having on our na-
tion," Mr. Zuma said. "Not even
the youngest are spared."
And though the country now
has a strategy to fight the dis-
ease and the largest antiretrovi-
ral treatment program on earth,
he said: "We are not yet winning
this battle. We must come to
terms with this reality as South
He also called for "a massive
mobilization campaign" to spur
South Africans to safeguard their
health, educate them about the
risks and convert "knowledge
into a change of behavior."
Mr. Zuma did not go into de-
tail about the behavior changes
that were needed.
Many anti-AIDS advocates
hope the president will speak
out about the dangers of mul-
tiple sexual partners and urge
people to take the difficult,
and in some cases culturally
charged, steps that could help
prevent the spread of H.I.V.:
condom use and male circum-
cision, which more than halves
the risk of infection for men,
among other things.

Are you ready to do some

Psalm 1 gets us thinking se-
riously about the company that
we keep. Many of us errone-
ously think that who we associ-
ate with is unimportant. Some
erroneously think that if we talk
to or are kind to sinners, then
we are also doomed for hell.
This cannot be true because be-
fore Jesus' ascension, He com-
manded His followers to make
disciples of all. You cannot
make a disciple long distance.
Yes, Jesus did talk to, eat, heal
and help sinners. But let's keep
one important fact in mind - the
people with whom Jesus asso-
ciated did not remain the same.

They didn't
change Him,
He changed
Verse 1 of ,
Psalm 1 tells
us that there is joy for those
who do not follow the advice
of the wicked. They might be
wise in the things of the world,
but the wicked cannot possibly
advise you on the things of the
Lord. And no matter how smart
they are, no one is smarter than
God. This verse also says that
those who do not hang around
with sinners or join with mock-
ers find joy. Now you might

think that is contrary to what
I just wrote earlier - that we
must spend time with the world
to make disciples. If you are
involved in a feeding or clothing
ministry, you should personal-
ly give the food or the clothing
to those whom you are helping.
However, if they invite you to
come on over to their place to
partake of drugs, or join them
in a drink where they hang out
with their buddies, you need
to respectfully decline. You do
not need to act as the sinners
or wicked act to be in a position
to minister to them and share
the Gospel.
Many churches believe that
they can only reach young peo-
ple by dressing, speaking, and
behaving as they do. That's
fine if they are dressing, speak-
ing and behaving acceptably,
according to the Word of God.
But you are defeating the pur-
pose of evangelism by talking
trash, dressing immoderately,
and participating in sinful ac-
tivities. If we stoop down in the
mud, it should only be to grab

the hand of someone who has
fallen, and pull them up; not
get down'in the filth and sling it
around with them. The author
of this psalm writes that the
godly delights in God's laws.
They meditate on His Word all
of the time. What do you spend
most of your time thinking
The godly are rooted and
strong. They bear fruit each
season and their leaves do not
wither. There are not only dif-
ferent natural seasons through-
out the year, but there are dif-
ferent seasons spiritually as,
well. You might be in a season
of great trial, but you should
still be bearing good fruit. The
difficulties in your life should
not make you mean and bitter.
There should still be a smile
on your face and in your heart.
You should still be spending
time praying, praising, and
serving others. You should still
be giving testimony and spread-
ing the Gospel. This verse said
that we will still prosper no mat-
ter what the season. I know it

The event was organized by the
Stand for Children and The Alter-
native Programs, Inc. which are
both run by community activ-
ist Georgia Ayers. The programs
work with at-risk teens who have
been incarcerated or those who
are heading down the wrong
path. Ayers says her reasons for
organizing the event is, in addi-
tion to the increase of Black-on-
Black violence in the streets, that
the County wants to fund senior
citizens rather than invest in the
Ayers believes that the A.K. 47s
are not being carried around by
senior citizens --- but the youth.

In balancing the budget, Ay-
ers wants the elected officials to
consider the current state of our
youth whose youth programs are
being eliminated but keeping se-
nior programs.
"Don't make sense to invest
in me but those 18-years-olds
in our streets," said Ayers, a re-
tired County employee. "If I don't
stand up for the children then
who else will?"
Ayers is not alone.
"I am on body count 72," said
community activist Renita Holm-
es who lost her godson to the vio-
lence on the street. Holmes has
seen parents after parents walk
down that road of burying their
children from the senseless vio-

doesn't seem as though you are
prospering when the rent is due
and you do not have the money,
or the car note is late, and the
kids need money for school sup-
plies, and the pantry is empty,
and the list goes on and on.
But prosperity is not only in the
monetary sense, we prosper in
many other ways, and the most
important way to prosper is in
the things of the Lord.
The rest of this psalm serves
a warning. Do not be envious
of the wicked! No matter that
they seem to be doing so well

Why so many health care bills? ,_IV .

The Associated Press

A look at key issues in the
health care debate:

Why are there so many different
health care proposals being dis-
cussed on Capitol Hill, and what
exactly does Obama support?

Last week, Speaker Nancy Pelo-
si, D-Calif., unveiled a House bill
that combined the work of three
separate committees. The legisla-
tion would provide coverage to 96
percent of Americans and estab-
lish a government-run insurance
option with doctors, hospitals
and other providers allowed to
negotiate rates with the Health
and Human Services Depart-
ment for services provided. In the
Senate, Majority Leader Harry
Reid, D-Nev., is pushing a com-
promise bill based on the work
of Senate Finance and Health
committees that would create a

government-run option but allow
states to opt out. The Senate bill
also relies on nonprofit co-ops to
get the uninsured covered. There

had been five bills in the Senate
and House, one from each of the
congressional committees with
jurisdiction over health care. Of
the two bills in the Senate, the
one passed out of the Finance
Committee had received consid-
erable attention because it won
a lone Republican vote - that of
Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine,

a key moderate who Democrats
hope will get them to the 60 votes
needed for passage in the full
Senate. President Barack Obama
has not formally endorsed any
of the bills. Instead, he has out-
lined several core objectives for
legislation. Those include a guar-
antee of insurance, regardless of
pre-existing medical conditions;
a guarantee of choice of doctors
and health plans; the assurance
of affordable, quality health care
for all Americans, and curbing
health care costs.

Obama has been careful not
to specifically endorse any of the
bills. He called the House legis-
lation "another critical milestone
in the effort to reform our health
care system." He praised the
Senate Finance Committee bill
for offering security to those who
have insurance and affordable
options for those who don't, as
well as barring denial of coverage
for pre-existing conditions.

Vaccine makers pick up the pace

By Elizabeth Weise

Susan Lilavois waited in the
rain to get her disabled 4-year-old
daughter vaccinated against the
H1N1 flu strain Wednesday. She
had called her pediatrician's office
for weeks with no success, so when
she heard the Fairfax County, Va.,
Health Department was holding a
clinic in Springfield, she got her in
car at 7:30 a.m. to be first in line.
When she arrived, she was num-
ber 133 out of 250 available slots.
"The nurses were really nice," she
said, but with only three of them,
she and her daughter waited for
three hours.
But "as un-fun as it was, it would

be worse if she was home sick all
night and day for a week," Lilavois
As similar scenes played out
across the country, Homeland Se-
curity Secretary Janet Napolitano
said Wednesday that more vaccine
was coming.
Since Oct. 5, more than 23.3 mil-
lion doses of H 1N 1 flu vaccine have
been made available to the states,
Napolitano said in a briefing.
The rate of vaccine production
was lower than manufacturers had
hoped because the virus' growth
rate was slower than expected,
she said: "We were getting some
pretty rosy scenarios, and not un-
til growth began did we know for

Now vaccine companies have
had time to switch to faster-grow-
ing strains, so production is more
robust. Nine million doses were
produced in the past seven days,
and "the pace is picking up," she
"We know people are frustrated
by the inability to immediately get
vaccine right now, and we know
people are frustrated by waiting in
line," Napolitano said. "We ask for
your understanding."
Health and Human Services
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius also
warned against hoax products of-
fered online that claim to prevent
or cure the flu.

continued from 9B

who lived within a 15-mile radi-
us of the downtown VCU medi-
cal center.
Each home was marked on
the map with colored pins, and
visits were scheduled by geogra-
phy to maximize Boling's time. It
took only a few stops, and some
memorable patients, for Bol-
ing to recognize that home care
made sense.
Take the stroke victim restrict-
ed to a second-floor bedroom in
his home. Time and again his
wife had to call an ambulance,
whose crew carried him by
stretcher down rickety stairs to
an emergency room _ for a bloat-
ed gastrointestinal tract, high
fevers and vomiting. Turns out,
the patient had low blood potas-
sium levels.
Boling began drawing blood at
the house and prescribed a med-
ication that stabilized his potas-
sium, and staved off ER visits.
"It was so stark," says Bol-
ing, "the contrast between what
he needed and what (the health
care system was) giving him."
It's, that type of patient that
Boling envisions being cared for
under the proposal pending in
Congress. The so-called "Inde-
pendence at Home" provision is
but one small piece of the larger
health care reform measures.
Where other proposals have di-
vided lawmakers, the house-calls
idea is winning support from Re-
publicans and Democrats alike
as a "more cost-effective way for
these patients to get the coordi-
nated care they need," says Sen.
Richard Burr, R-N.C.
The provision calls for the
Medicare program to partner
with home-based primary care
teams to test whether house
calls would reduce preventable
hospitalizations, ER visits and
duplicative diagnostic tests for
high-cost, chronically ill pa-
That means patients with at
least two chronic conditions
congestive heart failure, diabe-
tes, dementia, stroke and so on
_ who have been hospitalized in
the past year and require assis-
tance for at least two daily liv-
ing activities, such as bathing,
dressing, walking or eating.

Miami Heat retire Tim Hardaway'sjersey

The Miami Times Staff Report

NBA All-Star Tim Hardaway's
No. 10 jersey was retired at last
week at the start of the game in
which the Miami Heat defeat-
ed the New York Knicks at the
American Airlines Arena.
Well-known for being one of
the best point guards in the
league, the retired basketball
player celebrated the night with
old teammates, family, friend
and former coach Pat Riley.
S"Tonight, I stand before you

truly humbled and grateful,"
Hardaway said.
Born Timothy Duane "Tim"
Hardaway, Hardaway grew up
in the streets of Chicago. He at-
tended the University of Texas
in El Paso and was later picked
by the Golden State Warriors in
the 1989 first round NBA Draft.
After almost seven years with
the Warriors, Hardaway came
to Miami to play for the Heat.
In the 1996-97 season, he
was a Most Valuable Player
(MVP) candidate. Injuries kept

him from participating in play-
off games so he was later trad-
ed to the Dallas Mavericks in
2001 then traded to the Denver
Nuggets in 2002. He ended his
basketball career after one year
with the Indiana Pacers.
Throughout his career, Hard-
away, 43, has scored over
15,000 points, roughly 7,000
assists and close to 2,000 three-
pointers. Hardaway supported
his former teammates in their
2006 championship victory.
Riley had a few words to say

about the all-star at the retire-
ment ceremony.
"It's another great moment,"
Heat president Riley said. "I
would say from the year 2006
until now, we've had a couple
of incredible moments. Both of
them are hanging from the raf-
ters, our world championship
banner that we're so proud
of - and there's more of those
in store for the future - and of
course Alonzo Mourning last
year, one of the anchors of this

Stevie Wonder and others celebrate Rock Hall

The Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame honors music's most trea-
sured acts, but this time it was
the hall's turn to be feted. Bruce
Springsteen, Billy Joel, Stevie
Wonder and more celebrated
the hall's 25th birthday with a
concert that included all-star
collaborations, spellbinding gui-
tars, plenty of high notes - and
even tears,
Thursday's extravaganza at
Madison Square Garden, the first
of two concerts, ran more than
five hours, and was a reunion
of past inductees. Among the
performers were Simon & Gar-
funkel (1990), Crosby, Stills and
Nash (1997), Jeff Beck (2009),
James Taylor (2000), Bonnie
Raitt (2000) and Sting (with the
Police, 2003).

"It's been incred-
ible being in a room
with musicians ...
who put music in
your head," Spring-
steen said during
his rollicking set,
which ran nearly
two hours and fea-
tured the Boss col-
laborating with the
Piano Man, singing
Joel hits like "New
York State of Mind"
and "Only the Good
Die Young."


The night's emotional highlight
came courtesy of Wonder, who
sang Michael Jackson's upbeat
"The Way You Make Me Feel," in
tribute to the fallen King of Pop.
During one part in the chorus,

Wonder stopped
singing, bent his
head and started to
sob, but he quickly
gathered his com-
posure to finish the
song, ending it joy-
ously by leading the
crowd with chants
of "We Love Michael
Jackson" and "Long
Live Michael Jack-
Soul crooner John
Legend shared the
stage with Wonder

during the song. He said while
backstage that Wonder's, emo-
tion for Jackson "is very heart-
felt, and you can see it, you can
feel it."
"I was just honored to be with

him to celebrate Michael's lega-
cy," Legend said.
But the mood of the night was
hardly somber. Instead, it was an
endless jam session of rock gods
playing some of the most cher-
ished songs in pop music's cata-
log. Performers like Wonder and
Springsteen didn't just use their
sets to sing their own songs, but
to give homage to their influenc-
es and celebrate the newer gen-
eration's music stars.
Simon brought out Dion and
also Little Anthony and the Im-
perials, and Springsteen show-
cased inductee Sam Moore and
John Fogerty, as well as vet-
eran Darlene Love and guitarist
Tom Morello, whom he called a
"future member of the Hall of

Monica reality show

premieres on BET

After a brief hiatus
from the music indus-
try, R&B singer Monica
is back in the spotlight
with "Still Standing," an
intimate docu-drama
that takes a look at her
day-to-day world.
The original series,
"Monica: Still Stand-
ing," premiered last
week on BET.
Viewers have the
chance to experience
the many faces of the
singer as she balances
family, deals with trials,
triumphs and health
challenges, records her
fifth album and tackles
the hardest job of all -
being a full-time mother
of two young sons.
"It was very scary
stepping into the
type of situation that
would expose me and
my life," said Monica:.
"But I think that there
are so many kids now
that are aspiring to do
exactly what I've done
and I felt like that was
worth me putting my-
self on the line so they
would really under-
stand what it's like to
try and juggle both a
music career and per-
sonal life."
Even with all of the

success in her enter-
tainment career as
a Grammy-winning,
multi-platinum record-
ing artist and actress,
Monica's life has not
been without its chal-
Yet, through the spir-
itual guidance of her
parents, family and fi-
ance, she withstood the
storms of life and that
same support keeps her
standing today.
Strong, poised and vi-
vacious, Monica wants
to show viewers and
fans that anything is
possible once you set
your mind to do it. She
wants them to know
"sometimes you have to
go through to get to.",

Mya gives everything

she's got on 'Dancing'

Call her the darling
of the dance floor.
R&B singer Mya,
who's been making
waves in music for
years, is getting plenty
of love for her near-
perfect turn as a con-
testant on this season
of the ABC hit, "Danc-
ing with the Stars."
Foot surgery when
the season began gave
Mya some fears over
becoming this season's
first to be voted off.
Yes, even before Tom
The Washington D.C.
native fractured a bone
in her foot last year.
Although she was giv-
en an all-clear to com-
pete, the 29-year-old
wondered how her foot
would hold up amid
such demanding rou-

"My doctor said I'm
fully healed because
it's the bone. But now
I have to make sure
my tendons are strong
enough," she told
WENN last month. "I
was pre-training before
this, just doing cardio
and stretching, so we'll
see how it goes."

Precious' makes a 'surreal'

premiere in Hollywood

The cast and crew of "Pre-
cious: Based on the Novel
'Push' by Sapphire" contin-
ued their unexpected jour-
ney from a scrappy little
screening 10 months ago at
the Sundance Film Festival
to a star-studded gala at the
legendary Grauman's Chinese
Theatre in Hollywood.
"I'm speechless," said direc-
tor Lee Daniels at an event
hosted by the American Film
Institute on Sunday. "I'm
humbled and speechless.
That's the best way to de-
scribe it. I just can't... I wish
I had the words. Dreamlike?
Sort of surreal."
The dark urban drama,
which opens in U.S. cinemas
on Friday, follows Clareece
"Precious" Jones, an over-
weight, illiterate and abused
Harlem teen who is pregnant
with her second child and in-
vited to enroll in an alterna-
tive school in hopes that her
life will head in a new direc-
While at Sundance, where
the $10-million film took top
honors, Daniels got a call
from Oprah Winfrey, who ul-
timately joined fellow enter-
tainment mogul Tyler Perry
in serving as after-the-fact
executive producers.

"Unfortunately, I forgot ev-
erything about it," Sidibe re-

called. "It's so weird, because
she's such a big deal to me,
that when she speaks, I don't
hear anything. It's like it's
so weird. It's like hysterical
blindness in a way. All I can
remember is her saying my
name over and over, and that
can't be right."
"Precious" has earned strong
critical notices for two unlikely
recipients: Mariah Carey and

Mo'Nique, the stand-up
comic, talk-show diva and
comic-actor, plays Clareece's
monstrous, abusive mother.
"I got a phone call from Mr.
Daniels, and he said, 'I've got
something that might mess up
your career.' I said, 'Sign me
up,'" she said.
Carey has a role as social
worker - a small part, but one
the music superstar views as a
milestone in her acting career.
"I mean I had one milestone
that almost had me under the
stone," she laughed, referring
to the 2001 bomb "Glitter."
"I didn't realize that you re-
ally have to be selective with
the people that you work with
and you have to have that
support system and you have
to work with people that you
feel are geniuses and Lee Dan-
iels is a genius in my book, so
I'm grateful."
Other gala attendees Sunday
included Winfrey and Perry,
who posed for photographers
but didn't speak to press. Also
present were novelist Sap-
phire, "Precious" costars Pau-
la Patton (with musician hus-
band Robin Thicke) and Sherri
Shepherd, as well as Carey's
musician husband Nick Can-
non and Mary J. Blige, who,
co-wrote one of the film's
original songs.




Jennifer Hudson finds happiness

By Sophia Tareen

In the year since three mem-
bers of her family were brutally
killed in Chicago, Grammy and
Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson
has found ways to heal and
start a new life.
And it appears the 28-year-
old is happy again.
The actress and singer has
gushed over her role as a new
mother. And she has poured
herself into her work, from a
gospel-tinged rendition of the
national anthem at the Super
Bowl months after the slaying
to last month's "VH1 Divas"
concert in New York.
Now she is set to return to
Chicago in a few weeks to film
an ABC prime-time special in
which she'll share memories of
her childhood Christmases in
her old neighborhood and the
church where she started sing-
It will be a bittersweet journey

I'll Be Home for Christmas,"
which is scheduled to air in De-
A year ago, just as her career
was really taking off with roles
in movies like "Sex and the City"
and "The Secret Life of Bees,"
Hudson had to return home for
the worst reason possible.

On Oct. 24, 2008, the bodies
of her mother, Darnell Hudson
Donerson, 57, and brother Ja-
son Hudson, 29, were found in
the family's home on the city's
South Side. The body of her
7-year-old nephew Julian King
was found days later in a sport-
utility vehicle on the city's West
Side, slightly more than 10
miles away. All three had been
Hudson has repeatedly de-
clined to talk publicly about the
killings. She and her publicist
declined AP interview requests.
"She's heartbroken," said Bob

Israel, 40, who was friends with
Jason Hudson and lives near
the Hudson's' Chicago home.
"They were a close-knit fam-
William Balfour, the es-
tranged husband of Jennifer
Hudson's sister Julia, was
charged with first-degree mur-

alleged Balfour killed them in
a jealous rage because he was
upset that Julia Hudson was
dating another man. Balfour
pleaded not guilty and remains
The following days were tu-

multuous for Jennifer Hudson,
including a trip to the Cook
County medical examiner's of-
fice to identify Julian King's
A picture of the cherub-faced
boy, nicknamed "Juice Box,"
was posted on Hudson's MyS-
pace page after the killings and
remains there.
"I want to thank each and
every one of you for your
thoughts .and prayers during
this difficult time," she wrote
on MySpace.
"My sister and I take great
comfort and strength from
your love and concern."
After the funeral and a star-
studded memorial service,
Hudson, who won an Oscar in
2007 for her supporting role in
"Dreamgirls," spent the next
few months away from the
public eye.
By February, she had
launched back into work, film-
ing a video for "If This Isn't
Love," followed by the Super
Bowl performance and a Gram-
my win for best R&B album for
her self-titled debut CD.
Hudson, who first gained
fame as a finalist on "Ameri-
can Idol" in 2004, returned to
Chicago last month to perform
"Spotlight" for "The Oprah Win-
frey Show."

R & B singer opens center for women

On a beautiful fall day in

Michael Jackson documentary opens big in late-night showings on Tuesday.

By Gil Kaufman

Predictions were that "Michael
Jackson's This Is It" could be the
highest-grossing music film of
all time, and the documentary
chronicling the final concert
rehearsals of the King of Pop got off
to a good start. A series of late-night
screenings pulled in $2.2 million in
the U.S. on Tuesday, setting the film
up for a possible #1 ranking at the
box office this Halloween weekend,
according to The Associated Press.
The fright-filled' weekend could'

set up a showdown between the
zombie-loving late pop star and
the surprise success of low-budget
horror flick "Paranormal Activity,"
which pulled in just. $1.7 million
on Tuesday after topping the box
office last weekend. While "Activity"
will expand to its widest release yet
over the weekend when it unfolds
on 2,400 screens, "This Is It" will
challenge it with more than 3,500
Pre-sales for "This Is It"
Wednesday. matinee screenings
already surpass the total for the

first night, according to Sony, the
film's distributor.
The current record for the biggest
concert movie is "Hannah Montana
& Miley Cyrus: Best of Both
Worlds," which last year banked
a $31.1 million opening weekend
and topped $65.3 million during
its limited run. "This Is It" - culled
from more than 100 hours of high-
definition footage shot of Jackson
rehearsing for his planned 50-date
comeback residency at the 02 Arena
in London this year - is slated to
have a two-week engagement.

While "This Is It" had a healthy
premiere at late-night showings
Tuesday - in advance of its rollout
on Wednesday in 99 countries -
it did not come close to the best
premier-night bow ever. That
achievement belongs to "Pirates
of the Caribbean: At World's End,"
which raked in $13.2 million on a
Thursday night before its official
Friday release in summer 2006.
Nor did it set a Tuesday night
record - "Independence Day" holds
that honor with $11.1 million in
summer 1996.

Cyrus currently has the music
documentary box-office record,
with last year's "Jonas Brothers:
The 3D Concert Experience" well
behind it at $19.2 million, followed
by "Madonna: Truth or Dare" ($15
million) and last year's "U2 3D"
($10.2 million). Sony Pictures paid
$60 million for the rights to the
Jackson film, and experts predicted
that the investment was likely worth
it, given the intense interest in the
film and anything Jackson-related
in light of the singer's shocking
death at age 50 on June 25.

Costco stores to accept

food stamps nationwide

Costco Wholesale said Wednes-
day that it will start accepting
food stamps at its warehouse
clubs nationwide after testing
them at stores in New York.
It's a big about-face for a retail-
er that has catered to bargain-
hunting but affluent shoppers,
and it's a sign of the grim reality
facing retailers and their custom-
ers. The number of Americans
relying on government food sub-
sidies to eat recently hit a record
36 million.
Costco (COST), which is based
in Issaquah, Wash., began ac-
cepting food stamps at two New
York stores in Brooklyn and

Queens in May under politi-
cal pressure from officials who
worked with the company on
opening a club in a redevelop-
ment area in Manhattan.
The company quickly expand-
ed to all six of its stores in New
York state.
Company officials said they
had doubted many customers
would use food stamps but it
turned out new members said
they were joining precisely be-
cause the company accepted the
assistance program.

Rapper 50o Cent's

diamond buying

hit by recession

In this economic climate, no one is immune
to tough times, but the rap industry shouldn't
hold its breath for a government bailout any
time soon. Instead, rappers may want to take
some advice from mega-millionaire 50 Cent.
He admits to losing a "few million" because
of the credit crunch, but instead of getting
scared, he's getting smart -- sort of.
"I buy diamonds on a very regular basis,
but now I am selling my old stuff before I
get something new," he told The London
Telegraph. "These are times when you learn
about the value of money."
He also offered to teach others his mon-
ey-preserving strategies -- including Presi-
dent Obama. "Any businessman who wants
a piece of the future should learn from me.
Obama is great. If he wants me as his finan-
cial adviser that would be cool."

U.S. Airways to

cut 1000oo jobs

By Joshua Freed
Associated Press

Struggling US Airways said on Wednesday
it will cut some 1,000 jobs next year, shift
nearly all of its flying to its three hubs and
Washington, and suspend several interna-
tional routes.
It's a major retrenchment, and Chairman
and CEO Doug Parker said he hopes it gets
the airline making money again.
US Airways Group Inc. said the job cuts will
happen in the first half 2010 and will include
600 passenger and ramp service workers,
200 pilots, and about 150 flight attendants.
The airline will close crew bases in Las Ve-
gas and at LaGuardia airport in New York on
Jan. 31, and/in Boston on May 2.
It's also scaling back international flying.
It is suspending flying between Philadelphia
and London Gatwick; Birmingham, England;
Milan, Italy; Shannon, Ireland; ,and Stock-
holm. US Airways is also formally giving up
its government permission to fly between
Philadelphia and Beijing, which it had never

Building bigger barns: What will you store?

By James Clingman
NNPA Columnist

Anyone fa-
miliar with the
Book of Luke
(Chapter 12)
in the bible
will recall the
passage about
the young man
who had accumulated so
much "stuff' and decided to
tear down his old barns and
build bigger ones in which
to store his "stuff." In other
words, he had great excess
and was not the least bit in-

terested in sharing it or using
it to glorify God. The young
man was so proud of what he
thought was his own accom-
plishment - accumulating so
much material wealth - that he
never considered the temporary
nature of earthly treasure, nor
how he could use his treasure
to help others.
Are Black folks in that same
collective mindset today, accu-
mulating more and more "stuff"
and in danger of facing the real-
ity of losing that "stuff" to some-
one else, as the parable says?
Are we so engrossed with get-
ting more and more and hord-

ing it, to the point of forgetting
where it came from in the first
place? Have we overlooked the
fact that we are supposed to
be good stewards over what we
have? And finally, do we think

he would simply build more

No, this is not a sermon. I
just want to point out the

wherewithal among Black peo-
ple, both financial and intel-
lectual, and to suggest for the
umpteenth time that we should
use our resources in ways that
will enhance our collective em-
powerment, especially among
those less fortunate.
A feature in the National
Black News Journal cited an
article by Forbes Magazine that
listed the wealthiest Black folks
in America. The top ten individ-
uals had a total wealth of more
than $6.5 billion. Wowl I bet
they have some huge barns.

But, what has that tremendous

it building a strong infrastruc-

Jobless claims drop less than expected

By Christopher S. Rugaber

The number of people claim-
ing jobless benefits for the first
time dropped less than expected
last week, evidence that the la-
bor market remains weak even
as the economy is recovering.
The Labor Department said
Thursday the amount of newly
laid-off workers seeking un-
employment insurance fell by
1,000 to a seasonally-adjusted
530,000. Analysts predicted a
steeper drop to 521,000, ac-
cording to a survey by Thomson
The report comes the same
day the Commerce Depart-
ment said the economy grew at
a 3.5 percent pace in the July-
September quarter, snapping a
streak of four straight quarters
of decline. But the economy
isn't growing quickly enough to
spur much hiring.
Still, the four-week average of
claims, which smooths out vola-
tility, fell for the eighth straight
week to 526,250, its lowest level
since early January. Claims are
slowly declining as companies

P (N

lay off fewer workers.
Economists closely watch ini-
tial claims, which are consid-
ered a gauge of layoffs and an
indication of companies' will-
ingness to hire new workers.
The number of people con-
tinuing to claim benefits, mean-
while, fell sharply by 148,000 to
5.8 million, a steeper drop than
analysts expected. The figures
on continuing claims lag initial
claims by a week.

When federal emergency pro-
grams are included, the total
number of jobless benefit recip-
ients dropped by about 105,000
to 8.9 million in the week end-
ing Oct. 10, the latest data
Congress has added up to 53
extra weeks of benefits on top of
the 26 typically provided by the
states. The Senate is consider-
ing legislation that would add
another 14 to 20 weeks.

The large number of people
remaining on the rolls shows
unemployed workers are having
a hard time finding new jobs.
The unemployment rate rose
to 9.8 percent in September
from 9.7 percent, the depart-
ment said earlier this month, as
employers cut 263,000 jobs.
More job cuts were announced
this week. Apparel maker
Hanesbrands Inc. said Tues-
day that it is shutting a hosiery
plant in Winston-Salem, N.C.,
and laying off 240 employees.
Among the states, Califor-
nia had the largest increase in
claims, with 5,774, which it at-
tributed to layoffs in the con-
struction, services and agricul-
tural industries. Puerto Rico,
Minnesota, Nevada and Nebras-
ka also reported increases. The
state data lags initial claims by
one week.
Wisconsin had the largest
drop in claims, with 5,681,
which it attributed to fewer
layoffs in manufacturing. New
York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and
Oregon had the next largest de-

U.S. mortgage rates hold just above 5 percent

U.S. mortgage rates held
steady just above 5 percent
in the latest week after mixed
signals on the health of the
housing market, Freddie Mac
(FRE.N) said on Thursday.
Average 30-year home loan
rates inched up 0.03 percent-
age point in the week ended Oc-
tober 29 to 5.03 percent.
This fixed borrowing cost has
risen from a record low of 4.78
percent set in April, but remains
almost 1-1/2 points lower than
a year ago, said Freddie Mac,
the second-largest U.S. home
funding source said.

"Interest rates for 30-year
fixed mortgages have averaged
just below 5 percent this year,
which is the lowest 10-month
average since the survey began
in 1971," Frank Nothaft, Fred-
die Mac's chief economist, said
in a statement.
"As a result, refinance activity
has accounted for almost seven
out of 10 mortgage applications
on average this year," according
to Freddie Mac data, he said.
Government stimulus efforts,
including up to $1.45 trillion of
mortgage-related debt purchas-
es by the Federal Reserve -- the

U.S. central bank, have sliced
and held down borrowing costs
to bolster the housing market
and the economy.
Demand for mortgages, how-
ever, slid last week for the third
straight week, with home pur-
chase applications the weakest
since mid-May and refinancing
requests at a two-month low.
Many borrowers who would
have applied for the federal
$8,000 first-time buyer tax
credit in the past week would be
unlikely to close on their loans
before the November 30 dead-

Congress is hashing out a
possible extension of the tax
credit to keep stoking the fragile
housing market.
In reporting a 9.4 percent
jump in existing home sales for

ation for Realtors last week said
first-time buyers accounted for
more than 45 percent of sales
during the past year.
New home sales, however,
posted a surprise 3.6 percent
drop last month, the Commerce
Department said on Wednes-

Wal-Mart starts selling caskets, urns online

By Emily Fredrix
Associated Press

The world's largest retailer
wants to keep its customers
even after they die.
Wal-Mart has started sell-
ing caskets on its website at

party caskets.
The caskets come from Star
Legacy Funeral Network, a
company based in McHenry,
Ill., that sells the same cas-
kets for about the same price
- some less - on its site,
along with many others.
Star Legacy CEO Rick Oba-
diah said the response in the
first week has been better than
the company or Wal-Mart ex-
pected, though he declined to
give specifics. A spokesman

for Walmart.com also declined
to release sales figures and
downplayed the venture.
"Several online retailers

wala wrote in an e-mail. "We

The move gives more power

"You can get a quality cas-

funeral home. That's where it
helps the consumer," he said.

Economy growing but recovery could be at risk

By Jeannine Aversa
Associated Press

Fueled by government stim-
ulus, the economy grew last
quarter for the first time in
more than a year. The question
now is, can the recovery last?
Federal support for spending
on cars and homes drove the
economy up 3.5 percent from
July through September. But
the government aid - from
tax credits for home buyers to
rebates for auto purchases -
is only temporary. Consumer
spending, which normally
drives recoveries, is likely to
weaken without it.
If shoppers retrench in the
face of rising joblessness and
tight credit, the fragile recovery
could tip back into recession.
. For the Obama administra-
tion, the positive report on eco-
nomic growth is a delicate one:
It wants to take credit for end-
ing the recession. On the other

hand, it needs to acknowledge
that rising joblessness contin-
ues to cause pain throughout
the country.
Millions of Americans have
yet to feel a real-world benefit
from the recovery in the form
of job creation or an easier
time getting a loan. Even
those with jobs are reluctant
to spend. The values of their
homes and 401(k)s remain
President Barack Obama
called the report "welcome
news" in remarks prepared for
a small-business group but
acknowledged that "we have
a long way to go to fully re-
store our economy" and recov-
er from the deepest business
slump since the 1930s-era
Great Depression.
"The benchmark I use to
measure the strength of our
economy is not just wheth-
er our GDP is growing, but
whether we are creating jobs,

whether families are having an
easier time paying their bills,
whether our businesses are
hiring and doing well," Obama
The rebound reported Thurs-
day by the Commerce Depart-
ment ended the record streak
of four straight quarters of
contracting economic activity.
The news lifted stocks on
Wall Street. The Dow Jones
industrials average gained
about 150 points in afternoon
trading and broader indices
also rose.
But whether the recovery
can continue after government
supports are gone is unclear.
Many economists predict eco-
nomic activity won't grow as
much in the months ahead as
the bracing impact of the gov-
ernment's $787 billion pack-
age of increased government
spending and tax cuts fades.
The National Association for
Business Economics thinks

growth will slow to a 2.4 per-
cent pace in the current Oc-
tober-December quarter. It
expects a 2.5 percent growth
rate in the first three months
of next year, although other
economists believe the pace
will be closer to 1 percent.

Obama admin urges Congress

to extend homebuyer credit

The Obama administration
on Thursday pressed Congress
to back a limited extension of a
popular first-time homebuyer
tax credit that is set to expire
at the end of November.
"This credit has brought new
families into the housing mar-
ket and contributed to three
consecutive months of ris-
ing home prices nationwide,"
Treasury Secretary Timothy
Geithner and Housing and
Urban Development Secretary
Shaun Donovan said in a pre-
pared statement.
The statement made no men-
tion of a possible expansion of
the credit to repeat buyers of
primary residences.
Key senators agreed this
week on a proposal to extend
the $8,000 first-time home-
buyer tax credit, which ex-
pires at'the end of November,

for houses under contract by
the end of April. Buyers would
have through June to close on
the house.
The senators also agreed to
expand the credit to allow for
those who have been in their
home for at least five years to
receive a $6,500 tax credit if
they purchase a new primary
The administration had been
open to extending the existing
credit but has expressed con-
cern about the cost of expand-
ing the credit to repeat buy-
Both the Senate and the
House of Representatives
would have to approve the
deal reached by the key sena-
tors before it could be sent to
the White House for President
Barack Obama's signature
into law.

Pop-up stores help

fill mall space during

economic slump

By Jayne O'Donnell

Clerks at 25 of about 750
Spirit Halloween stores will go
from saying "Boo" this week-
end to "Ho ho ho" in a couple
of weeks as the temporary lo-
cations transform into ToyZam
for the winter holiday season.
. And then, just like that,
they'll be gone.
Unlike the vacancies created
by bad luck and a bad econ-
omy, these and other stores
- including Calendar Club,
Hickory Farms and some Gu-
cci sneaker shops - are set up
to close up. These "pop-up," or
temporary, stores actually ben-
efit from the downturn as mall
owners and other landlords
are often happy to have a two-
or three-month tenant rather
than no one to fill voids left
by the departures of Linens 'n
Things, Circuit City and other
retailers. Some mall companies
even have people whose full-
time jobs are to fill temporary
store space.
"Mall owners have discovered
they can line malls with kiosks
and fill up empty stores with
short-term merchants," says
Jim Bieri, a Detroit-based re-
tail real estate consultant. "It's
hard to do the temporary mer-
chandising, but companies fig-
ure out how to do it short term
for Christmas because the lines
are so long."

--I . A

mall is a far scarier proposition
in this economy than it used to
be. Sometimes, it just doesn't
make sense to sell year-round.
And, often, concepts that
seemed like incredible hits in
the short term can fizzle.
"If. a pop-up becomes a per-
manent kiosk, it can lose its
panache," says Janet Hoffman,
retail practice leader for con-
sulting firm Accenture. "The
key is putting it in the right
place at the right time."
Hickory Farms started run-
ning only-temporary stores
and kiosks about 15 years ago
when it realized almost all of its
business was around the holi-
days. This year, as the chain is
working on improving the qual-
ity of its product line, it has
found the real estate choices
are better than usual, too.
"It's allowed us to be very
selective about the stores we
want to take," says CEO Mark
Bieri, who runs The Bieri Co.,
says retail vacancy rates are the
worst he's seen in the almost
40 years he's been in business.
CoStar, a commercial real estate
research and marketing compa-
ny, says the amount of new re-
tail space built is at the lowest
since 1983. The U.S. retail va-
cancy rate increased from 6.7%
at the end of the fourth quarter
of 2008 to 7.6% at the end of
the third quarter of 2009, says
CoStar, and is at the highest
level since it started tracking
it in 2006.

Tribune Co. newspapers

to go a week without AR

The Chicago Tribune, Los
Angeles Times and other
newspapers owned by the
Tribune Co. plan to cut
back on use of the Associ-
ated Press (AP) next week
to test whether they can do
without content from the
US news agency.
The Chicago Tribune
said the plan to "utilize as
little content from the As-
sociated Press as practical"
was aimed at determining
whether the Tribune Co.,
which declared bankrupt-
cy in December, can sever
ties with the AP.
The Chicago-based Tri-
bune Co. has been looking
for ways to cut costs and
in October 2008 it gave the
AP the required two-year
notice that it might drop
the service.
The Chicago Tribune said
Tribune Co. television sta-
tions and newspaper web-
sites would not take part
in next week's experiment.
The newspaper also said
sports statistics from the
AP will still be used along
with items "considered vi-
"But the company wants
to see to what kind of void
the absence of AP stories
and photos would have,"
the Chicago Tribune said.
It said Tribune Co. news-
papers will rely on their
own staff and news sourc-

es such as Agence ,
France-Presse (AFP), N
Bloomberg, Cable
News Network, Global
Post, Reuters and oth-
ers during the trial.
In a statement, the
AP said it "appreci-
ates and understands
that newspapers are
looking for ways to
confront challenging
economic times and one
way might be considering
how they use content from
the AP and other sources.

Consumer spending drops in September

By Martin Crutsinger

Consumer spending
plunged in September by
the largest amount in nine
months, reflecting the end
of the government's Cash
for Clunkers auto sales pro-
gram. Incomes, the fuel for
future spending, were flat.
While the government
reported that the overall
economy grew in the July-
September period, signaling
the end of the worst reces-
sion in seven decades, the
weakness in spending and
incomes as the quarter end-
ed underscores the fragility
of the recovery.
The Commerce Depart-
ment said Friday that spend-
ing dropped 0.5 percent in
September, matching econo-
mists' expectations. Person-
al incomes were unchanged
as workers contend with
rising unemployment and a
squeeze on wages.
Economists worry that the
recovery could falter in com-
ing months if households
cut back on spending to
cope with rising unemploy-
ment, heavy debt loads and


4-,~ ~

tight credit conditions.
The concern is that much
of third-quarter growth
stemmed from temporary
government programs such
as the clunkers sales incen-
tives that ended in August.
The government said
Thursday the gross domes-
tic product, the broadest

measure of economic health,
expanded at an annual rate
of 3.5 percent in the third
quarter, the first increase
after a record four straight
declines. A 3.4 percent rise
in consumer spending,
which accounts for 70 per-
cent of total economic activ-,
ity, powered the gain.

And consumers appear
willing to pay a little more
for' Colgate toothpaste, Kel-
logg's Frosted Flakes and
Gillette Fusion shavers, ac-
cording to earnings released
Thursday. Procter & Gam-
ble Co., Colgate-Palmolive
Co. and Kellogg Co. all gave
upbeat reports and even

stronger outlooks for next
However, some econo-
mists believe that consumer
spending will slow sharply
in the current quarter, low-
ering GDP growth to per-
haps 1.5 percent. Analysts
said the risk of a double-dip
recession cannot be ruled
out over the next year.
The 0.5 percent drop
in consumer spending in
September followed a 1.4
percent surge in August
which was propelled by
the big jump in car sales
that month as consumers
rushed to take advantage of
the clunkers' incentives.
Last month's drop in
spending resulted in a
boost in the savings rate to
3.3 percent of after-tax in-
comes, up from 2.8 percent
in August. Many analysts
believe households will keep
striving to increase savings
in the months ahead to re-
plenish nest eggs that were
crushed by last year's stock
market crash. That also
would hold back spending
in the months ahead, weak-
ening the recovery.

White House: 650,000 jobs saved in new stimulus report

Rematch set for CIAA title

BCSP Editor :
To say that Bowie State backed into
Saturday's CIAA Championship Game vs.
Fayetteville State would be an understatement.
But first-year BSU head coach Damon Wilson
doesn't see it that way.
After failing in two attempts on the field
over the last two weeks to claim the CIAA
East Division title - losses to Virginia Union
(17-16) on Oct. 24 and Virginia State (14-12)
last Saturday - Bowie State won a coin toss
Sunday that settled a tie with Virginia Union and
Elizabeth City State and gave them the division
"We don't see look at it as backing our way
in," said Wilson Tuesday. "We did what we had to
do on the field to get ourselves into this position.
We had two opportunities to close everybody
out and we didn't get it done. We were disap-
pointed in that but we're in a good mood.
"It's an opportunity to continue our development
as a ballclub. We're excited to play Fayetteville
BSU (6-4, 5-2) is getting a second shot at
Kenny Phillips' West Division champion FSU
squad (7-3, 6-1), a team that beat BSU 30-20 in
Week 3 (Sept. 12) at Bowie State.
In that game, BSU outgained FSU 440 yards
to 211 but saw quarterback Tyrae Reid throw
five interceptions, lour in the red zone. BSU run-
ning back Rodney Webb. the CIAA's leading
rusher (81.9 ypg.), ran for 113 yards and all three
BSU touchdowns. Reid threw for 299 yards but
had the five picks.
"On paper, we beat Fayetteville but we didn't
protect the football," said Wilson. "They won
wear it counts most, in the win column. We'll
have to play better, not make as many mistakes if
we expect to win Saturday."
Wilson said he will decide this week who

starts from among three quarterbacks - Reid,
Emmanuel Yeager or Andre Johnson. Webb
and Ramono Flowers, who rushed for 111 yards
Saturday vs. VSU, are both healthy.
Phillips, making his fourth title game appear-
ance in ten years, counters with Calvhin Harris
(69.3 ypg., 4th) and Richard Medlin (54.4 ypg.,
8th) who are among the league's top, rushers. Tyler
Hosler has taken most of the snaps at quarterback
over FSU's last five games since the Broncos' last
loss (25-20 to Virginia State) replacing Benjamin
The teams come in pretty evenly matched.
They have the two best overall defenses in the
conference (BSU 217.5 ypg., FSU 259.4 ypg.)
and against the run. BSU averages 28.2 points per
game., FSU 31.1.
Fayetteville State moved into 10th in this
week's NCAA Div. II Super Region II poll and
needs a win to get as high as eighth and earn
access to the playoffs. BSU is not ranked in the top
ten and would have to win and jump over FSU up
to eighth to earn a spot.

SWAC hoops tourney
moves to Shreveport
The Farmers Insurance Southwestern Athletic Conference Women's
and Men's Basketball Tournament has moved from Birmingham, Al. to
Shreveport, LA, Commissioner Duer Sharp announced last week.
The 2010 Farmers Insurance SWAC Basketball Tournament will be
played March 10-13 at CenturyTel Center. The women's and men's tourna-
ment finals will be televised live on ESPNU.
This will be the first time the basketball tournament will be played in
the Shreveport-Bossier City area. The metropolitan area has a population
of more than 300,000 residents and is the second-largest tourist destination
in Louisiana.
Opening in the fall of 2000, CenturyTel Center has hosted numer-
ous world-class concerts, sporting events, and family shows. Among its
amenities, the venue boasts a large center hung video scoreboard, able
to show close-up action and instant replays, as well as 75 TV monitors
located throughout the concourse areas. Seating capacity for the SWAC
Tournament will be approximately 8.000.
"It has been a great experience working with the Commissioner and
his staff to this point and I look forward to our staffs working closely over
the next couple of months planning and executing one of the most suc-
cessful tournaments in SWAC history," said Mike Cera, General Manager,
CenturyTel Center. "Hosting the SWAC tournament gives us the opportu-
nity to showcase the versatility of the CenturyTel Center and provides the
Bossier City-Shreveport Community with another prestigious event."

Retail gas prices highest in a year

By Mark Williams
Associated Press

Retail gasoline prices
chugged higher Friday
to a new peak for the
year, forcing consum-
ers to dig deeper into
already-thin wallets to
pay for fuel.
At the same time,
natural gas prices also
were moving up again
and have now climbed
16 percent in the. past
two months - just in
time for furnace sea-
son to kick in.
The worst part: Sup-
plies of oil and gas are
plentiful. In fact, stor-
age points for gas are
so jammed, produc-
ers are running out
of places to put it and
crude supplies are well
above average levels.,
Gasoline prices are
now up 17 straight
days after climbing
0.4 cents overnight to
$2.695 a gallon, ac-
cording to auto club
AAA, Wright Express
and Oil Price Informa-

tion Services. That is
the highest price since
Oct. 26, 2008.
Prices are up 5.9
cents from a week ago'
and 14.8 cents from a
year ago.
The average re-
tail price for gas was
$1.686 a gallon in
December. Today's
price will tack about
$50 a month on to the

monthly gas cost for
the typical customer
compared with then.
It comes at a time
when unemployment
is at a 26-year high.

on the consumer.
It's something visible

economy into reces-

"Can high oil prices
shut down the econo-
my? Well, clearly the
answer is yes," he
The reason for the

increase at the pump
is because oil prices
have been on the rise,
going from $65 a bar-
rel as recently as Au-
gust to $82 last week.
A $17-per-barrel in-
crease is worth about
40 cents a gallon.
A year ago, gasoline
prices were plummet-

sis and recession took
hold, and demand for
oil and gasoline tum-
bled sharply.

is improving and a

Pending home sales rise for record eighth straight month

By Stephanie Armour

Sales of pending
homes hit a record in
September as home-
buyers rushed to take
advantage of a tax
credit for first-time
home buyers - a pace
that could continue if
Congress takes steps
this week to extend
and expand the stimu-
lus set to expire at the
end of this month.
Pending home sales
saw their eighth

straight month of
gains, marking the lon-
gest streak since the
measurement begin in
2001, according to the
National Association
of Realtors. The data,
which is based on con-
tracts signed in Sep-
tember, showed that
sales of pending homes
rose 6.1% over August.
It's also 21% higher.
than September 2008.
"I did not anticipate
such a huge rise," says
Lawrence Yun, chief

economist with NAR.
"This is getting home
values to start to stabi-
lize. First-time buyers
have clearly responded
to the tax credit. With
the passage of an ex-
tension, more move-
up buyers will respond
as well."
The index of pend-
ing home sales is at
its highest level since
December 2006. Sales
rose the most in the
West, where the in-
. dex jumped 10.2%

over August and is
up nearly 24% over a
year ago. Construc-
tion spending also
rose as home builders
rushed to get projects
in case the tax credit
is allowed to expire
on Nov. 30. Spending
rose 0.8%, the most
since September of
last year, according
to the Commerce De-
Private home con-
struction, which in-
creased nearly 4% in

September, saw the
biggest increase since
July 2003.
The recent rally in
both pending and ex-
isting home sales are
largely attributed to
a tax credit of up to
$8,000 for first-time
home buyers. Now at-
tention is turning to
efforts to extend and
enhance the credit;
supporters of the cred-
it say it could be ap-
proved by the Senate
as early as Monday.
