Why I am deserymg
of this scholarship
A recent local high school gradicate wrote this reply to a lo-
cal group seeking a candidate worthy of giving a scholarship.
Since this is the graduation period and many young people are
contemplating their futures, we think these thoughts should be
As an African American male in a single parent
home, the quality of a college education will be
an extremely important factor in determining how
successful I will become as I mature into a man. A schol-
arship will almost guarantee that I will further niy educa-
tion and attend college, increasing the likelihood of ob-
taining a great career after college. Although there will be
trials and tests, there is no doubt in my mihd that I will
excel in college, graduate with honors, and either proceed
to Graduate School, or obtain a solid position whichever
option will be best at the time. If I enter the workforce after
graduating, prayerfully that career will allow me to help
my mother financially.
I have watched my mother struggle throughout my life
trying to provide for me, sacrificing her wants in order to
make ends meet. It is because of those sacrifices I strive
to be an excellent student to receive scholarships such
as this one. The aforementioned financial struggles mo-
tivate me not only to excel in school, but ih my extracur-
ricular activities such as sports, church ministries, and
community service. Luke 12:48 states. For unto whom-
soever much is given, of him shall be inuch required: and
to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask
the more." I know that because God has blessed me with
more than just extraordinary scholastic ability, I must ap-
ply myself in every aspect of my life and not only in school.
This an intelligent, well-rounded young man.
Leadership is an attribute that distinguishes me from
mjr peers and I have always considered myself a leader and
not a follower. The ability to lead propelled me to perform
exceptionally well and stand out in varsity football, and
organized basketball, as well as scholastically in school,
and in inany other extracurricular activities. I am the
President of Young PersonM Division (YPD) at the church
I attend, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), the
5000 Role Models, and I hold a part-tiine job at Coldstone
For personal enjoyment and spiritual reasons. I minis-
ter through mime and song using facial expressions I am
currently the mime.1esider at my church, Martin Memorial
A.M.E, at a neighboring church, Kerr Memorial,. and at
my high school, Robert Morgan Educational Center. As a
spiritual mime, I dress up in dark clothing accentuating
my hands with white gloves and my face with white paint.
The spiritual breakthroughs come from the ministering of
songs through facial expressions and bodjr movements. In
doing this, I am not only ministering to my church family,
but also performing as God has called me to do, I am also
giving back to the community that has.raised me to be the
young man I am today.
I vievir this scholarship from the same perspective that
a businessman or woman views an investment into new
business venture, stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. This
scholarship is an investment of finances, that will pro-
duce far greater benefits and returns for the future. As a
college student I plan to major in accounting and minor
in business management! entrepreneurship. By receiv-
ing the scholarship your organization is offering, not only
will I benefit from that blessing, but also when I graduate
from college I will be able to be a blessing to someone else
and help enrich the lives of the youth in my community,
which will enrich the community as a whole. I will be one
less statistic of an African American male without a father
in their home not to succeed and I will defeat the odds.
Only through God's grace and the financial help of your
organization, will I be a successful, educated individual
who will continue to help those in need., Finally, an edu-
cational scholarship will not only improve my life in nu-
merous ways, but the world will have one more educated
individual to make a profound difference.

Chief Justice Peggy A.
Quince made telorida's First

one of her Supreme Court ini-
tiatives, and the Virgil Haivkills
Florida Chapter National Bar
Association (VHFCNBA) < has
implemented the project by re-
searching and writing the his-
tory of the first Black lawyers
admitted to practice in Florida.
The work is being published
in a book that-will be unveiled
at a Legacy Gala on Saturday,
June 27, 2009, at the Orlando
World Center Resort.
"This history project fos-
ters a full understanding of
the'struggles and accomplish-
ments of Florida"s first Black
lawyers, inspires current and
future lawyers, and promotes
meaningful diversity in the
profession," said Chief Justice
Quince. "It is important for
all of the people of the State
of Florida. This history will
be distributed statewide to all
of Florida's 'D' and 'F public
schools and to the law school
libraries," "VHFCNBA feels
privileged to truly build on our
legacy by both identifying, our
history and niaking history.
The book will make a great
contribution to the statewide
libraries," VHFCNBA President
Rachelle Munson said.

An oral history is also be-
ing captured and a video pre-
sentation will be shown at the
Legacy Gala. Chief Justice
Quince personally conducted
the interview of 94-year-old
former Judge John -D. John-

The integration of The Flori-

history book. Admittance to
The Florida Bar has occurred
in various ways throughout
history. Some Black appli-
cants obtained white attorneys
to vol.Ich for their character,
petitioned for admission, and
' then underwent examination
by a committee appointed by
a circuit court judge. For ex-
ample, James Weldon John-

addition, the history book tells
of how Blacks, like Judge Ed-

take the Florida bar exam in

frustrating, because in truth,
we reach out to all communi-
"We're in pretty much every
ethnic community in Miami,"
he continued, "whether it's lit-

"The idea was always to build
affordable housing. One of my
'partners, Louis Wolfson, had
been the former chairman of
Greater Miami Neighborhoods.
He chaired that organization
for many years on a pro bono
bisis. He felt that we could
start another company, taking
that experience and add value
to the affordable housing are-
na here in South Florida," said
Wolfson confirmed this. "I
came from a not for profit back-
ground, that's my mentality,"
he said. "At Pinnacle Housing
Grol.1p, I'm fortunate enough
to have partners who enjoy a

challenge. They too are com-
mitted to changing the image
of affordable housing. People
hear the word affordable hous-
ing and they think you're going
to destroy their property val-
ues. That has always been the
image of affordable housing.
That image; we can't stand. We
want people to realize that af-
fordable housing can increase
property values." .
Wolfson cited other reasons
for his company's commitment
to developing in the urban
"At Greater Miami Neighbor-
hoods, we were always building
in the suburbs, and my desire
was to start getting rid of slums
in the urban core," he said. '
He also cited advice he re-
ceived from real estate legend
Jim Rouse, who is credited
with building America's first
indoor shopping mall.
"Jim Rouse explained to me
that you can have an educa-
tion, but if you're spending
75 percent of your income on
dilapidated, terrible housing,
yolfil never get up and out of

poverty," he said. So it's really
a two-fold solution. You need
both education and affordable
housing; and then you can take
people up and out of poverty,"
he said.
Wolfson said residents
shouldn't be spending more
than 35 percent of their income
on housing.
Both partners (the other two
partners are Mitchell Fried-
man and Michael Wohl) agree
that building in the urban cure
presents unique challenges.
"It takes more up front mon-
ey per unit, mostly because of
the garages you have to build,"
said Wolfson. You also have to
build strong buildings when
you go up 13 or 14 stories.
Construction codes are stroil-
ger," he said.
"The challenges are umque,
but they are offset by the prox-
imity to jobs, transportation,
and services for residents" said

he said. "An act of God and

The facts indeed demonstrate
this. Deutch provided The Mi-

"It did not work out," said
Kemp but he took an alternate
route, enrolling in the Respira-

skills and experience within the
program like riding on the Mi-

with then Lt. Carlos Gime-

The experience gave Kemp the
drive to pursue a career in the

He is set for trial Jurie 29.
If convicted, he would face five years in
state prison and not be able to teach in a
classroom, according to Attorney Michelle
A. Delancy, a partner at the delancyhill
P.A. law firm.
"Having literally done nothing, he is fac-
ing five years in prison," she said.
Lawanda Corley, who worked with
Bernard at Northwestern and teaches at
Natural Bridge Elementary, characterizes
him as a man who caused no problems
and was an excellent principal.
Angel Myers, a coordinator with the
DBDF, describes the case as a simple
waste of taxpayer dollars.
"No one can say where the crime was.
This was not handled by the school board.
My concern is that this is not a criminal
case. Why would they spend thousands
of dollars on a case that is not criminal?"
she asks.
Miami-Dade School Board could not
comment and the State Attorney Office
failed to return calls from The Miami Times
regarding this issue.
Still, Delancey is confident about the

It's been two years since Dr. Dwight A.
Bernard was removed from Miami North-
western Senior High School as principal
but on this particular Tuesday, members
of the Friendship Church prayed for a
man who they believe was "innocent."
The prayer vigil was organized by the
Dr. Dwight A. Bernard Defense Fund
and Pastor Gaston Smith of Friendship
. In 2007, a controversial on-campus sex
crime took place at Northwestern in which
Antwain Easterling, then an 18-year-old
senior, allegedly had sex with a 14-year-
old freshman on the floor in a school bath-
room. Easterling led his team to a state
title under the leadership of Bernard, 43.
Although the sex may -have been con-
sensual, under state law, it was consid-
ered a crime because of the students'
ages. Bernard, a 20-year educator, was
removed from his position as principal
of Northwestern by then Miami-Dade
Schools ChiefDr. Rudy Crew. ,
Bernard faces two counts of "official
misconduct" which means, "It is unlaw-
ful for a public servant with corrupt in-

The June 18 naming of a new
North Miami high school after
former NBA star Alonzo Mourn-
ing and his wife, Tracey, has
raised issues pertaining to the
school board's naming process.
It is commonly believed that
the philanthropist and his wife
edged out Janet Reno, the first
female U.S. Attorney General,
for the honor,
Critics say that the school-
naming process has become
too political. They attribute the
choice of the Mournings over
Reno to Cuban-Amerigan dis-
satisfaction with Reno's 2000
order to return six-year-old
Elian Gonzalez to his father in
Cuba. Critics also say that the
system is flawed in that it al-


lows schools to be named for
people who are sti111iving (and
can cause embarrassment with
future misdeeds).

The Christian Reformed
Church in North America is one
of several predominantly white
Protestant denominations con-
fronting racism and diversity
in their congregations. /
Although CRC has grown
more ethnically diverse, lead-
ers of the 300,000-member de-
nomination see that they still
have a long way to go for rec-
'Where the tension arises
is how do we get to this goal
of creating a multi-cultural
church," said CItC executive
director the Rev. JerryDykstra,
according to CRC Communica-
tions. "Our sin (of racism) is
with us today in this church. It

has been so easy to judge peo-
- ple by the color of their skin;
how they speak, what culture
they are from." '
Dykstra addressed those
attending the bieimial Multt-
Ethnic. Conference over the
weekend. The conference \\as
held as hundreds of Christickn
Reformed members were gath-
ering in Palos Heights, Ill., for
their annual Synod.
The Rev. Pedro Aviles, a for-
mer liastor and current pro-
fessor of church and ministry
leadership at Trinity Christian
College, says CRC's next major
growth will come by intentional
steps in obedience to the king-
dom mandate for embracing

diverse peoples and ordaining
such leaders.
"God's kingdom is advanced
by people of color who are led
by people of color," Aviles said,
according to CRC Communica-
Concerns were raised this
year over the lack of minority
voices in the leadership of the
denomination. Pledging to sup-
port ethnic minority members,
Dykstra presented his vision of
racial diversity and -a plan to
accomplish that vision.
"We are taking a new ap-
proach to how we do business
in the denomination and there
will be places for other voices,"
Dykstra said at the confer-

Changes toward diversity

this morith..According to find-

gregations Study which was
directed by Mark Chaves, pro-,
fessor of Sociology, Religion,
and Divinity at Duke Univer-
sity the percentage of con-
gregations with more than 80
percent white participation
dropped from 72 to 63 percent
between 1998 and 2006-07.
The percentage of attendees in
predominantly white congrega-

immigrants jumped from 39 to
51 percent. Moreover, 78 per-_

cent of people a drop from 82

with a white #astor.

ter person. God does not allow
hardships just for the sake of
merely 'teaching us a lesson',
or to hurt or harm us. In the
midst of my illness, I still was
able to rest assured that He
loved me and was right there by
my side.
But what about those who do
not know how much the Lord
loves them? What about those
Believers who do know, but mis-
ery, pain, rebellious children,
. cheating spouses, foreclosures
and unemployment become a
'burden that seems too much
to bear. These situations make
it easy for the enemy to slip in
almost unnoticed and ask you
where your God is. He will say
that if God loved you, you would
be employed, in a wonderful
marriage with great children,
and a lovely home. He will at-
tempt to cause you to forget
that the Word says that we will

suffer trials and tribulations
(James 1:1-3). Jesus Himself
told that the people that in this
world, we would have trials and
tribulation but we should
take heart He came to over-
come this same world that we
fmd the trials and tribulation.
It's so easy to forget all of those
Sunday School lessons and ser-
mons that taught you that God
will never leave or forsake us,
and even more importantly that
He love us unconditionally.
Someone who is not well
might start searching the mind
to pull every bad decision, and
every repentant sin and bring-
ing them to the forefront to try
to attempt to figure out why
they are sick. Don't do this!
If you have brought these sins
and bad decisions before Godr in
sincere remorse, and have re-
pented, then leave it alone. God
does not acknowledge it any-

that God loves me. I know
that He is not always pleased
with decisions that I make, or
things that I say, or even some
thoughts; but He always loves
me. I realized that when we are
in a low time of our lives, or not
feeling well as in my case, it is
so easy for the enemy to whis-
per in our ear with words to
make us doubt that God loves
us. His love is our strength.
His joy is our strength. If we
cannot fathom that we are loved
by God, we are weak and inef-
fective. I reminded myself, and
the enemy, several times during
my illness that I knew that God
loved me and was not punish-
ing me. He had not afflicted me
with sickness to make me suf-
fer. I told the enemy that even if
God allowed adverse conditions
in my life, it was only to draw
my attention to certain matters,
and to help me to become a bet-

also noticed that I was much
more sensitive to what was said
to me, or to what I perceived to
be an offense. Some issues that
were bothei-ing me prior to my
illness made me even more anx.
ious. I recognized that some-
thing was not quite right with
me. I had a conversation a few
days later with my mentor, and
she confirmed that my illness
did indeed cause me to be anx-
ious, and not think as clearly as
I would normally.

community on September 16,
1938, the first of four children
born to Oscar L. pnd M. Athalie
Range, and the only girl, which
assured her a special place in t
he hearts of both her parents.
Myrna attended the original
Liberty City Elementary School
until the fifth grade, when the
New Liberty City Elementary
was opened, as the result of
a long-fought struggle led by
her mother. She would begin
high school at Dorsey High,
but would transfer to Booker T.
Washington, as both her par-
ents were working in Overtown.
She enrolled at in Spelman
College in Atlanta, and later
transfer to Knoxville College,
where she received her Bache-

While at Knoxville, Myrna met
John Errol Lee whom she mar-
ried. Three boys, John, Vin-

this union.

No plans of retirement
for tennis star Williams
Venus Williams has warned her rivals that she has not even
entertained the thought of retiring while she remains at the
pinnacle of women's tennis.
Williams is preparing to defend her Wimbledon Singles title this

the English capital and she is also aiming for a. hat-trick of titles
this year, having defeated Marion Bartoli in 2007.
williams, 29, is at the age when most players start contemplating
alife away from the court, but the Floridian insists she has targeted
success.until at least 2012, when she hopes to return to London to
compete in the Summer Olympics.
"I'm still here and I don't think I'm going to be leaving any time
soon," she said. "It's been a real blessing to be a success here and
to still be playing great tennis at this point in my career. I still
think I'm capable of playing here for many years to come I hope
so, at least."
"I'm gding to be 30 next year, so why not? I do see myself coming
back and I see myself coming here in Olympics year, 2012, which
really isn't that far off. To win more gold medals would be incredible,
that's my favorite event," she said.
Williams may have made Centre Court her own in the 21st
century, but she still needs five more Singles titles to overtake the
all-time record holder, Martina Navratilova.
Williams insists she is not motivated by the thought of becoming
the most successful woman ever to grace the grass of south-
west London, although she is acutely aware of her place in the
tournament's illustrious history.
"It's incredible, looking up at those names on the champions
board, and see a good number by your own name," she added.
"It's great to be a part of that history and if I can step it up a
notch, it will be even more of an honour.

City of Miami, Model City NET Office and Partners invited the commtmity Friday night to gather at the Historic
Lyric Theater in Overtown in a semi-formal event to help celebrate the eighth annual Juneteenth. -
It was a celebration of freedom and liberty.
Known as Freedom Day or Emancipation, Juneteenth, which is celebrated on June 19, commemorates the
abolition of slavery in Texas in 1865. The day honors the price that many had to pay for slavery. Juneteenth cel-
ebrates the day that slaves in Galveston, Texas received news of their freedom. It was a day of tears, laughter and
unspeakable joy.
The year's theme for Juneteenth was "Moving On Up a Little Higher" a theme that resonated with famed Attor-
ney Willie Gary, who has tackled corporate giants in the courtroom. Gary gave the keynote address, encouraging
the young people to pursue their dreams and to prepare themselves to meet challenges ahead.
Gary shared the life struggles and challenges that helped him become the man that he is today.
Gary reminded the young people that, "Nothing will be handed to you." He then challenged every youth in the
building to seek an education. He said this will have an arnazing impact on their futures.
The talented South Florida group, Speaking Hands, gave an amazing performance encouraging the audience to
With that, the audience a.nd everyone in the building knew that a new day had come, and if proof was needed,

loved 'The Cosby Show' and I
think it's up to you as an actor

Study shows employers eliminating 401(k) plans

A quarter of U.S. em-
ployers have cut back
on employee 401(k)
retirement plans since
September in order to
save money amid the
economy's downturn,
according to research
released Monday.
A quarter of U.S.
employers also have
established limited en-
rollment rather than
open the savings plans
to all employees, ac-
cording to the study
conducted for Charles
Schwab Corp. by CFO..

Research Services.
Although the study
showed 23 percent of
companies have elimi-
nated 401(k) matching
contributions, most
see the move as tem-
porary, said Steve An-
derson, who heads Re-
tirement Plan Services
at Charles Schwab, a
financial services pro-
vider. .
"Most view that as a
temporary step. They
don't see that as a
long-term approach,"
he said.

Workers with 401(k)
plans have seen their
savings hit hard in the
recession. A 401(k) ac-
count allows workers
to defey taxes on some
income and typically
put the money in a mix
of stock and bond mu-
tual funds and other
Companies often
match all or part of em-
ployee contributions.
Asked to identify
the most important
feature of their com-
pany's 401(k) plans,,

87 percent of those
polled said it was the
company's match, the
Schwab study said.
Second most im-
portant was providing
employees access to
401(k) investment ad-
vice, the study said.
Of the 107 human
resource and 1 12 se-
nior finance executives
polled, 63 percent said
employee concerns
over personal finances
are creating a more
difficult work environ-

conducted in March
and April among ex-
ecutives at companies
with revenues ranging
from $100 million to
more than $10 billion
in a cross-section of
More than half of the
respondents worked for

Meanwhile, the HUD fair

Obama administration is

of color with detailed infor,

report discrimination when
renting property,

Donovan and the National
Fair Housing Alliance have
campaign that informs con-
sumers about altei-natives to

Conference on Civil Rights
and other advocacy groups
will assist with distributing
the materials.
"Many families, particular-
ly minorities, have been vic-
tims of aggressive and mis-
leading marketing of risky
loan products and foreclo-
sure rescue scams," Dono-

van said in a statement.
"As we implement Presi-
dent Obama's 'Making Home
Affordable' plan to deal with
the foreclosure crisis, we
need to ensure that families
in trouble with their mort-
gages are not hurt a second
time with scams," he said.
"Foreclosure scams are de-

Obama administration of-
ficials said the program is
designed for families in im-
mediate need to refinance;

families in or on the brink
of foreclosure, families fac-
ing eviction or already in the
rental market and families
ready to purchase a home.
"Today, we are witnessing
the devastating effects of the
foreclosure crisis in commu-
.nities across the country a
loss of wealth and housing
security, depleted tax-bases,
reduced social and munici-
pal services and less fund-
ing for schools," Shanna L.
Smith, NFHA president, said
