First African American Inducted Into

Buck O'Neil Helped Break Color Barrier in Major
Marc H. Morial
President and CEO, The National Urban League
community experienced a
major loss earlier this month
when Negro Leagues great
John "Buck" O'Neil died at
the age of 94 of congestive
Unlike Jackie Robinson,
who gained national promi-
nence as the first Black base-
ball player in the major
leagues, Buck missed out on
integration by a year or two.
His playing career was wind-
ing down as the color barrier
was broken. But he still man-
aged to make his own impact
in the dugout. As the major
leagues' first African-
American coach, he brought
numerous Blacks to the
"show," including future Hall
of Famers Lou Brock and
Born on Nov. 13, 1911 in
Carrabelle, Fla., Buck got his
first taste of baseball at an
early age through his father,
who played around town on
local teams. Nicknamed
"Buck" after Buck O'Neal,
co-owner of semi-pro team
Miami Giants, he was denied
the opportunity to play'major
league baseball because of
his skin color. So, Buck made
the most of the limited oppor-
tunines available, caring out
an illustrious career in the
American Negro Leagues.
After a short stint in
Memphis, he returned home,
to the Kansas City Monarchs
from 1938 through 1955,
with the exception of a two-.
year break to serve in the U.S.
Navy during World War II.
With a career batting aver-
age of .288 including four
.300-plus seasons, the first
baseman led the league in hit-
ting in 1946 with a .353 aver-
age. A year later, he achieved
his career best -- .358.
A veteran of three All-Star
games and two World Series,
Buck joined the legendary
Satchel Paige to play numer-
ous exhibition games at the
height of the Negro Leagues
barnstorming in the 1940s.
He rose through the ranks
from first baseman to play-
.er/manager from 1948 until
he turned to full-time man-
agement in 1955.
He finally got his own
chance in the major leagues,
starting off as a scout for the
Chicago Cubs, where he
remained 1988. In 1962, he
became the first African-
American coach. Buck even-
tually returned home, joining
the Kansas City Royals as a
scout in 1988 and earning
"Mid\west Scout of the Year"
honors a decade later, at the
age of 86.
But not until 1994 did
mainstream Americans final-
lv know who he was. thanks
in part to his role in Ken
Burs' PBS documentan
narration of the Negro
Leagues' history won him
widespread respect and major
media attention, including
appearances on "Late Night
with David Letterman" and
the "Late, Late Show with
As head of the Negro
Leagues Baseball Museum in
Kansas City, he proved a tire-
less crusader for Negro
Leaguers deserving Hall of
Fame recognition and official
historian/storyteller of the
Negro Leagues. In fact, earli-
er this year at 94, he proved
instrumental in getting 17
Negro League legends
inducted. He, however,
missed the Hall of Fame by
Even so, Buck held no
grudges and harbored no bit-
terness. He even gave a
speech at the induction. He
always said he was "right on
time" despite not receiving
baseball's greatest honor.
In 1995, he, according to
the Kansas City Star, waxed
philosophic before a group of
200 well-wishers on the Hall
of Fame's failure to induct
"God's been good to me.
They didn't think Buck was
good enough to bein the Hall
of Fame. That's the \vay they
thought about it and that's the
\vay it is, so we're going to
live with that ... Just keep lov-
ing old Buck. Don't \\eep for
Buck. No. man, be happy, be
thankfid," he said.
At his memorial service.
\ which drew\ more than 10.000
mourners, his great-great
nephew John O'Neil Askew
-was called to speak of
"He was the most ground-
ed person in bur family. He
was not caught up in the hype
of being the ambassador for
the Negro Leagues. He was
just 'Uncle Buck'," he said,
according to the Associated
Buck died knowing his
sacrifices paved the way for
greater opportunity for
African-Americans in his
beloved sport. He might not
have achieved the fame of
Martin Luther King Jr. or
Rosa Parks or Jackie
Robinson or Hank Aaron but
he played an instrumental
role in breaking down the
color barrier in our country in
his own way.
When faced with limited
opportunity, he took adverse
circumstances and made the
most of them. Although he
personally didn't realize his
ultimate dream of playing in
the major leagues and win-
ning a spot in the Hall of`
Fame, he opened doors that
enabled his successors to
realize their dreams.
His life should stand as an
example that a dream
deferred is not necessarily a
dream deferred when it
entails making the dreams of
others come true.
Now, if only the Hall of
Fame will come to its senses
and vote him in posthu-

"There's Always Something
Happening On the First Coast"
Ms. Senovia Lance Passes The Bar, 'Part Deux'
Following Sunday Church Services Ms. Senovia
Lance thought she was being treated to an afternoon din-
ner preceded by a ride around town with her church
friend, Ms. Melissa Fulmore. Much to her surprise this
was all a pretext for 'buying time' until the 'magic three
o'clock hour' where family and friends from far and near
were awaiting Ms. Lance's arrival at the Deercreek
Country Club. Ms. Lance, I'm told was under the
impression that she might be sworn in during Sunday
services. When that didn't happen she continued her day
with an afternoon outing with her friend, Ms. Fulmore,
from church. It was a total surprise when she arrived at
the Deercreek Country Club. Awaiting her in the Dining
Room were family and friends from college, law school
and church. Ms. Lance's parents Mr. and Mrs. Edward
Lance had invited family and friends to join in celebrat-
ing their daughter's achievement. Young Ms. Lance had
graduated from Stetson University School of Law and
she had passed the Florida Bar examination. With the
very able assistance of Mrs. Lance's Sandalwood High
School co-worker, Mrs. Clementine Scott they pulled
the surprise off. They even brought business attire for
Ms. Lance to be very appropriately dressed for her
swearing in ceremony.
The Reception Celebration held in Attorney Lance's
honor at the Deercreek Country Club where she was
sworn in by the Honorable Judge Henry Davis was
truly a celebration. There were: Greetings from her pas-
tor, Bishop Edward Robinson, Sr., Southside
C.O.G.I.C: words of inspiration from her Clearwater, FL
church family pastor, Elder Matthew Bryant, Emanuel
C.O.G.I.C, Clearwater, FL (who was accompanied by his
wife Mrs. Cheryl Bryant; Deacon and Mrs. Wilbur
Braddy and The Irvin Gulleys); spiritually uplifting
solos by Mses. Camille White and Carol Robinson;
expressions from the family; and a closing prayer from
Evangelist Doris Rodgers.
The Honorable Heinur Davis, also a Southside native
gave very inspiring remarks to Ms, Lance prior to the
swearing in. Judge Davis was accompanied by his love-
ly wife Mrs. Linda Davis, who assisted the Judge in get-
ting dressed in his judicial attire for the occasion.
The Florida Star staff was privileged to witness such
a momentous occasion! !

New Data Hint At Oncoming Cocaine Epidemic
GAINESVILLE, Fla.-- Like some drug d6ja vu, cocaine
use is once again on the rise among students and the rich and
famous, a trend University of Florida researchers say likely
signals a recurring epidemic of abuse.
Once known as the champagne of drugs, cocaine killed
"Saturday Night Live" comedian John Belushi and basket-
ball star Len Bias in the 1980s before use declined in the
Now new data from UF and the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement show that since 2000 cocaine has increas-
ingly been cited as the cause of death in coroner's reports,
and that the number of cocaine deaths per 100,000 people in
the state has nearly doubled in the past five years, from 150
in 2000 to nearly 300 in 2005.
The steepest per capital rise in death rates was in college
towns and wealthy, upper-class seaside communities, such as
Melbourne, West Palm Beach and the Florida Keys.
What's happening in Florida is likely occurring coast to
coast, says Dr. Mark Gold, a distinguished professor of psy-
chiatry, neuroscience, anesthesiology and community health
and family medicine at UF's College of Medicine. Gold and
colleagues analyzed FDLE data gathered in Florida and pre-
sented their findings Oct. 15 at the Society for
Neuroscience's annual meeting in Atlanta.
"Our data is closest to real time to any data available in
the United States," Gold said. "With death reports, there is
no fudge factor. The other states will show the same thing:
That we are in the early stages of a new cocaine epidemic
that is being led by the rich and famous and students with
large amounts of disposable income and that is responsible
for more emergency room visits and more cocaine-related
deaths than we have seen at any time since the last cocaine
UF Study Reveals
Many People With
Driving To Work
Prescription drugs, often abused for the immediate rush
of euphoria they trigger, can cause sudden respiratory or car-
diac arrest. In contrast, cocaine's cumulative effects --
including blood vessel damage that increases the risk of
heart attack or stroke over time -- can unexpectedly kill years
after abuse begins, Gold said.
"Cocaine gives them a feeling of incredible mastery, that
they are immune to the laws of nature," said Gold, who is
affiliated with UF's McKnight Brain Institute. "But it causes
consequences. You can't say you are out of the risk window
simply by surviving the use event. Death can come some
time in the future." Cocaine temporarily induces a high but
depletes the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine, which in
turn triggers a craving for more of the drug. It is this "drive
for the drug," he said, that makes it more likely for someone
who has used cocaine once to use it a second time.
Gold and his colleagues, including Bruce Goldberger, a
professor of pathology, immunology and laboratory medi-
cine at UF's College of Medicine, said models, artists and
other celebrities addicted to cocaine have "advertised" the
drug, enticing students and others with disposable income,
who are now among the most frequent users.
Funding for the data analysis came from the UF
Foundation's Substance Abuse Research Endowment.
UF experts said the recent spike in deaths should serve as
a wake-up call, prompting more drug education in schools
and communities nationwide.
Gold said such interventions are necessary to avoid
another full-fledged cocaine epidemic. "Hopefully, with
warning and prevention we can help users realize that this is
a chronic problem without a cure and their longevity is at

Even though they are at

identify two things what

driving and why folks who

More than 2.7 million
Americans live with epilep-
sy, a disorder in which nerve
cells in the brain misfire,
sometimes causing them to
lose control of body move-
ments. Accordingly, all
states have enacted strict
laws regulating whether
people with epilepsy are
permitted to drive. Most
mandate that drivers be

months to a year, Bautista
But even strict regula-

Slave Reparations Critics Blast New Brown University Report

and its president
Ruth Simmons for'
the issuance of a
.T.e "report titled, Slavery
::':.-rC. and Justice, which
was intended o
isi"" '., detail e the
University's links to
While the report
Dr. Ruth J. Simmons, President does not formally
apologize for Brown's
links to slavery, its recommendations amount to a de fact
apology. The committee says that the school should build a
-slavery memorial, establish a research center on slavery and
justice, and increaseefforts to recruit more minority students,
especially from Africa andthe West Indies.
The report was issued on October 18 by the so-called
SteeringCommittee on Slavery and Justice, a creation of
Ruth Simmons, whoappointed all of its members. Simmons
is dilso a member of the GoldmanSachs board of directors.
According to-the report; the university benefited, directly
or indirectly, from the slave trade. Among its findings, the
institution's founder, James Manning,was a slave owner, 30
members of the college's governing corporation owned or
captained slave ships, and slaves helped:construct some of
the school's buildings.
Simmons praised the report as an "opportunity to appre-
ciate not only the full historical context of the University's
founding, but also to use these insights as a point of depar-
ture to inform the choices to be made in the face of contem-
porary moral dilemmas." Simmons says she will soon issue
a response to the committee's recommendations.
'Carlisle reacted to the report by saying, "Worst of all, this'
report embraces the racist idea of group. guilt. Abolitionists
were involved with Brown, as well. People should be judged
on their actions as individuals, not as members of a particu-
lar racial group. The report also embraces cross-generational
guilt, an equally objectionable concept. Individuals should
be responsible for their own actions, not those of their ances-
tors 200 years ago."
Carlisle continued, "Simmons talks about 'historical con-
text' but that is exactly that what is missing from the report."
Carlisle pointed out that:
He stressed that there there were. many white slaves in
America, who came here as indentured servants. They had to
provide forced, unpaid labor before they were freed; many of
them were never freed.
Carlisle said free blacks often owned slaves. In 1860,
about one-third of the 10,600 free blacks in New Orleans
were slave owners.
"Prior to the Civil War, Irish immigrants rather than black
slaves often were employed for the most hazardous jobs
because the former were considered cheap and expendable
compared with blacks. Many Africans were just as complic-
it in the slave trade as Europeans and Americans. When the
British shut down West African slave ports in the 1800s,

Africans who benefited from the slave trade rioted," said
Carlisle continued, "The WASPs.who dominated Brown
for so many years could also be accused of anti-Catholic and
Should Brown erect monuments as a reminder of these
injustices? Should Brown kick out African-American stu-
dents and admit more Irish-Americans?"
Carlisle concluded, "This report is not about history. It is
about contemporary political strategies, whereby Simmons
seeks to advance the notion of African-American victimiza-
tion and entitlement for the economic benefits that result. As
a director of Goldman Sachs and other companies, it has cer-
tainly worked for her."
Carlisle is the co-author of "The Case Against Slave
Reparations," a monograph published by NLPC in 2004 and
updated in June of this year.

Felony Disfranchisement Laws Keep
Many Locked Out of Democracy
NEW YORK-- More than 5 million Americans are directly denied the right to vote, and
millions more are misinformed about their eligibility to vote. due to a confusing and archa-
ic national patchwork of "felony disfranchisement" laws, according to a new briefing paper
by Demos, a national, non-partisan public policy and research center.
The Case Against Felony Disfranchisement briefing paper, which is published this week
as part of Demos' Challenges to Fair Elections series, shows that, from state to state, the U.S.
has widely varying election policies and practices that deprive many eligible citizens of their
vote because of felony conviction status. Currently, most states impose some voting restric-
tions on people with felony convictions, ranging from a prohibition from voting while incar-
cerated to a virtual lifetime ban. In 2004, felony disfranchisement laws were responsible for
directly denying 5.3 million Americans their right to vote, with millions more disfranchised
due to a variety of procedures that leave even eligible voters misinformed about their voting
"No other Western democracy denies so many citizens the opportunity to exercise the
fundamental right and responsibility to vote." said Miles Rapoport, president of Demos.
"Shamefully, we are the only democracy that takes the vote away from citizens who have
completed their sentences. And, in states where the vote is restored after incarceration or
upon the completion of a sentence, many never find out about their restored vote because
state corrections authorities and elections officials rarely advise people with felony convic-.
tions about their voting rights and when they do, they often distribute unclear and inaccu-
rate information." '
Facts highlighted by the briefing paper include: -
-- 5.3 million Americans -- one in every 40 voting-age adults --were barred from voting
in 2004 because of a felony conviction.
-- Approximately 73 percent of disfranchised individuals are people who have complet-
ed incarceration and are living in communities. Denying these 3.9 million people a voice in
our government reduces them to second-class citizens, a practice deeply at odds with the fun-
damental American value of fairness.
-- Felony disfranchisement policies undermine the spirit and purpose of American
democracy and put us at odds with other democratic nations. The United States is the only
Western democratic nation that takes the vote away from citizens who have completed their
sentences. In fact, many countries also allow prisoners to vote, including Canada, Denmark,
France, Israel. Japan, Kenya, Norway, Peru, South Africa, Sweden and Zimbabwe.
-- Restoring the vote to ex-felons is part of effective rehabilitation. Restrictions on vot-
ing rights impede the goal of reintegrating those with felony convictions back into our com-
munities. A recent study has offered evidence that those who vote are less likely to be re-
-- Additionally, felony disfranchisement laws have a disproportionately negative impact
on the voting strength and representation of communities of color:
-- In states that disfranchise ex-offenders, one in four black men is permanently disfran-
chised. Given current rates of incarceration, three in 10 of the next generation of black men
can expect to be disfranchised at some point during their lifetime.
-- The average disfranchisement rate for blacks is nearly five times higher than that of
non-black Americans. In Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Illinois, the disfranchisement rate
for blacks is more than 17 times higher.
Nationwide, over 13 percent of black adult males are denied the right to vote, and black
men make up 38 percent of the total disfranchised population.
Seventeen percent of Latino men will enter prison in their lifetime,.compared to only
6 percent of white men, replicating much of the political disfranchisement experienced in the
African American community.
"The truth is, the United States' felony disfranchisement laws have no place in a modems
democracy. The numbers are clear: millions and millions of Americans are effectively locked
out of the democratic process for years, even a lifetime, owing directly to these policies,"
said Rapoport. "A majority of Americans -- 80 percent, according to one poll are in favor
of restoring the right to vote once a sentence is completed. Community, religious and polit-
ical leaders -- including former Texas governor and current President George W. Bush
and the current Republican gubernatorial candidate in Florida -- have come out in support of
restoring the right to vote to the formerly incarcerated. This is a moment to finally jettison
these 19th century practices from our democracy and start to work on making sure that all
citizens can register to vote, cast a ballot, and have it count."

Suspect Caught continued from A-I
in Polk County and was there at the time of the charges filed against him Monday for the
murder of Denise Manning as well as for armed robbery. The 19-year-old had described the
location and the weapon of Manning's murder to a Polk County inmate. The cell phone that
he had given his mother did belong to Manning, according to T-Mobile records.

injuries. In fact, he said, the blood ran down into his son's underwear.
The father explained that the county newspaper told about the drug bust incidents
and rather than show the real persons involved since they were not black, the story
was laid next to his son's picture as if he was the major suspect.
To add to the problems, the father, Jerome Jones drove to Camden County this
past weekend and was pulled over by the Kingsland Police. He was not speeding
so he did not understand why he was being pulled over, he said. The officer told
him, and the ticket was written for "failing to maintain his lane." He went back to
the spot and observed that the lanes were not marked there was not a divider in the
road, he said.
Mr. Jones stated that once his son was arrested, they found no cocaine on him but
stated, they did find cocaine residue on a table in his house.
Their biggest fear now is their son being moved to another facility. He said they

Dominique was back and ready and eagar to take on the responsibility of being a father to

Dominique is 22, and the baby's mother is 21. They both told The Florida Star that they

When The Star contacted the law office, we were advised that because the situation
involved the life of a child, they would not be able to discuss the matter.

SEXUAL PREDATOR ORDINANCE STILL APPROVED
Duval County Judge Russell L. Healey denied a sexual predator's motion to
throw out a charge that he was living too close to schools or day-care centers and
that the city's ordinance is unconstitutionally vague and overly broad.
The motion was filed by Eddie Hairston, a sexual predator who was arrested for
living within 2,500 feet of schools or child-care, centers in April. The City Council
passed the ordinance in May 2005; increasing the distance from 1,000 feet to 2,500
feet from areas such as schools and day care facilities for sexual predators.
Judge Healey said that there are about 65 other cities and counties in Florida that
increased the distance for sexual predators on where they are allowed to live, from
1,000 to 2,500 feet.
Georgia also has similar ordinances in many cities.

"U" CORD BLOOD What Is It?
Every expectant parent today faces a tough and irreversible choice: Should
you bank your newborn child's cord blood? If you are like most expectant parents,
you are perhaps overwhelmed and confused by the choice. On one hand you receive
tons of marketing from the cord blood companies touting the important benefits of
blood banking. On the other hand, you've heard that there is limited medical value to
storing your child's cord blood and the costs are very high.
What is Cord Blood?
Quite simply, cord blood is the remaining blood from your baby's umbilical
V cord and placenta after birth. Cord blood is loaded with our "stem cells" which are
K d orgins of the body's immune and blood system and may be the orgin of other organs and important systems in the body.
Stem cells are important because they have the ability to regenerate into other types of cells in the body.
A few years ago, cord blood was simply discarded as medical waste after a birth. However in the past few years
doctors have recognized that the stem cells have unique qualities which can be used in treatment of certain cancers.
The most common medical use is for tranplantation in many situations where bone marrow is considered. In the future,
it is possible that scientists will discover more diseases that can be cured with cord blood. U-Cord continued on B-4

BLACK PANTHERS.. .
40 YEARS OF "S T R U G G L E"
By Renee D. Turner, Writer
SPosted Oct. 16, 2006 During the 1960s, young people on the
l East Coast and in the South, .hoping to gain basic civil rights and
'Ia ^- ,' access to public accommodations, marched, demonstrated and sat
r, But on the West Coast, a new, more militant, brand of protest
erupted. There, young people, sick of poverty, police brutality and
overall inequality, picked up guns and demanded to be heard. They
called themselves the "Black Panthers."
In October 1966, Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale founded the
SBlack Panther Party for Self-Defense in the wake of the assassina-
.l' .m...." tion of Malcolm X. They were founded upon the principles of a 10-
Point Platform and Program, whose demands for "land, bread,
-housing, education, clothing, justice, and peace" remain as salient
Black Panthers, "The Struggle." They were not just armed with guns, but housing, education, clothing, justice, and peace" remain as salient
they had- knowledge of the law. Former Black Panthers explained how and urgent for African Ameicans today as they were 40 years ago.
they took a controversial stand without breaking the law. With a policy of militant self-defense for poor and minority commu-
nities against the U.S. government and a plan to reshape the democ-
racy into an experiment in socialism, the group elevated mass organizing and community-based programs to a new level.
They sold the Chinese Communist Party Leader Mao Tse-Tung's Red Book to buy shotguns. They organized sickle-cell ane-
mia testing and voter registration drives, and established a free breakfast program that once fed 10,000 children a year.
During their glory, the gun-toting, beret-and-leather-wearing Black Panthers made an indelible mark with their clinched fists
thrust skyward as they shouted "Black Power." Some of the institutions they challenged buckled under the sheer force of their politi-
cal demands as they defended their right to bear arms to protect Black communities.
Their trademark and stylish leather coats, Wayfarers shades and berets were mimicked throughout the halls of education insti-
tutions nationwide as young college students rose up to protest unfair treatment and demand rights. Along the way, the Black
Panthers, which in 1968 grew from a small ban of 400 to a national force of 5,000, caught the attention of the FBI, which spied, infil-
trated, sabotaged and eventually toppled the group from within with its counterintelligence techniques, know as COINTELPRO.
Back then, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover publicly called the Panthers the "greatest threat to the internal security of the coun-
The defense of their position proved a deadly proposition against a constant barrage.of police raids, alleged assassinations
and sabotage that would be documented in papers obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests. :
In December 1969, Chicago Police shot to-death local Panther leader Fred Hampton, 21, who headed five breakfast programs
on the city's Westside, helped create a free medical center, and worked to support blood drives and eradicate gang problems. Open
gunfights between the Panthers, the police and rival groups erupted in the streets.
Newton was convicted of voluntary manslaughter, but the case was later overturned. Seale and other party members were
indicted in Chicago for protesting during the Democratic national convention. They were bound and gagged during trial. Various other
members, including the Black Panther's first female chairman, Ericka Huggins, were arrested or a variety of conspiracy and murder
charges. Some fled abroad.
By the early 1980s, the Panther's had disintegrated. As Eldridge Cleaver, a former
panther and author of "Soul on Ice," explained in an interview a year before his death: "As
it was, [the U.S. government] chopped off the head [of the Black liberation movement] and -
left the body there armed. That's why all these young bloods are out there now; they've "
S_ got the rhetoric but are without the political direction...
and they've got the guns." .b
Newton, according to fellow panther David Hilliard,
became despondent and succumbed to cocaine and
heroin addiction. He was shot dead on the streets of
:Oakland in a drug dispute in 1989.
Seale long ago quit the party. But he says now, in
radio interviews marking the Panther Party's 40th Anniversary, that Panther Party members "had
a right to bear arms to protect ourselves" and won 95 percent of the criminal cases against them.
.:.But even now, there are original Black Panther members, such as Newton's widow, Fredrika
The Black Panther Party officially exist- Newton, and Hilliard, director of the Huey Newton Foundation, for whom the flame of freedom and

United States Teens Want To "Mind Their Own Business"
(NAPSI)-When it comes to a career in business, U.S. teens believe that success in the class-
room can lead to success in the boardroom. According to a recent poll, more than nine out of 10 teens
Believe that a college education will help them successfully start and grow a business.
Overwhelmingly, the majority of teens indicated they would like to start their own business
A someday, with over 70 percent affirming their interest in becoming entrepreneurs. The students'
!J responses provided the key findings of the fifth annual JA Worldwide Interprise Poll on
Entrepreneurship. The poll was administered online in early 2006.
Additionally, 75 percent of students with family members who have started their own business-
es said they would like to start their own enterprise someday, compared to 64 percent of students
whose family or relatives are not self-employed. The most popular type of business, selected by near-
ly a third of respondents, was "professional services," such as a lawyer, insurance agent or accountant.
Responses to the poll also indicated that male teens were twice as likely as their female counterparts to indicate
that starting a business today would be "very easy" or "easy."
Nearly half the teens queried (just over 48 percent) believe the greatest motivator for starting a business is to "have
a great idea/want to see it in action" followed by the desire to "earn more than they could working for someone else," select-
ed by just over 25 percent. Few believed (about 2 percent) that the inability to find desired employment is a reason peo-
ple start their own business.

as Junior Achievement-joined with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to develop an online resource called.

Planning A Perfect Play Date
Tips To Help Parents Prevent Play Date Pitfalls
(NAPSI)-It's an entry-level mixer for tots and a get-together for parents: A play date can be an excellent social set- ,
ting for young children, providing important child-to-child interaction. Play dates help youngsters build upon critical social
and developmental skills, while giving moms and dads the chance to socialize (that is, while supervising the kids, of '
To make the most of every play date and to prevent potential pitfalls, seasoned child care expert Nanny Deb, from
FOX's "Nanny 911," offers tips on planning the perfect play date:
Time Is of the.Essence- Choose an appropriate time to host the play date. Early morning and post-afternoon
nap times work best. Well-rested children are most likely to play well with others, so make sure everyone has had adequate sleep. Limiting the play
date to two or three hours of play will also help ward off overly tired and cranky dispositions.
Let Kids Have Some of the Control-Allow your children to be involved in who gets invited. But be sure not to leave anyone out!
Include Other Parents-It's important to ensure that all kids feel comfortable, especially when they are in unfamiliar territory. When their
parents are on the scene, children will feel empowered to engage in social activity.
Plan Stimulating Activities-Children are more likely to be on good behavior when they are preoccupied with thought-provoking play. Play-
date-appropriate products, such as the Little MommyTM Play All DayTM Toddler Doll, allow children ages 3 to 6 to develop their nurturing skills. The
toddler doll can say more than 30 phrases, move her arms and sing to mimic key moments in a toddler's life. In addition, there is a Little MommyTM
Play All DayTM Activity Center with special places for nap time, snack time, potty time and playtime.
Perhaps best of all, when girls combine the Play All DayTM Toddler Doll and the Play All DayTM Activity Center, even more fun surprises will
Encourage Sharing-Ask all kids to bring along a favorite toy to introduce to others. This will dissuade competitive attention from being
placed on the host child's favorite toy.
"I Want Doesn't Get"-Do not give in to temper tantrums over toy tugs-of-war. Give kids several minutes to try to solve the tiff on their own
before stepping in and having both kids move to another activity.
Avoid Sugary Snacks-Snacks you provide should be parent approved. Keep a checklist of anyone who has an allergy to certain foods.
Avoid foods with too much sugar, including cookies and candy. Serving snacks such as fruits and veggies are usually a safe bet to maintain smiles
throughout the play date.
Play dates are great ways to provide healthy interaction among children. Parents can make the most of these fun-filled hours by imple-
menting Nanny Deb's tips and incorporating toys that provide positive and meaningful play experiences for children.
Planning stimulating activities can help create a perfect play date.

Diddy Says, "He Often Challenges Himself As An Artist"
Diddy Continued from B-4
S*i In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Diddy said he took note of some of
SI I the most frequent jabs at his rapping style and worked to challenge himself as an artist.
Si "I didn't just talk about bling bling and how much money I had," said Diddy, via phone
i ti from Paris. "It was more about going in deeper, talking about relationships and love and
J all of the stages of love."
-But he worked on more that just the content of his music, focusing, too, on its delivery
l V ,. "If you hear in the tones of my voice, (I) give you different tones instead of just being
I; known for just the monotone thing that's not taking you anywhere emotionally," he said. "I
Swas able to go different places emotionally, and not using a whole bunch of samples, just
doing original orchestration and daring to be different."
Over the years, Diddy has become known more for his overall celebrity and his fashion
forays instead of what first brought him fame his musical side. But his Bad Boy label has
had a resurgence this year with successes from Cassie, Danity Kane and Yung Joc, and, now, his own album.
Diddy said he plans to keep the focus on his music with a tour launching sometime next year, and plans to push
multiple singles off this record; in any case, he wants people to continue to "Press Play" for more than just one week.
"I just went in to try and make some great music and music that will stand the test of time so the album will just keep
getting stronger and more intense as time goes by, which is rare in hip hop," he said. .
If You Want To Race...Take It To The Track '
Ten Things Communities Can Do To Combat Street Racing
(NAPS)-Street racing is recognized by communities around the nation as a problem that needs to be solved.
For decades, the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) has been active in anti-street racing campaigns.
Most recently, SEMA launched a coalition of manufacturers, after-market parts companies, professional drag racers,.
sanctioning bodies, racetracks and automotive magazines devoted to safe and legal alternatives to street racing on a
national level. The coalition was named Racers Against Street Racing (RASR) and the message is simple: If you want
to race, go to a track.
"RASR's message against street racing contends with hundreds of media messages that depict street racing
as glamorous,' said Christopher Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. "RASR strives hard to educate new and existing drivers about the dangers of street
racing and aggressive driving stunts that put them and others at risk of serious injury or death."
According to RASR, the following are 10 things communities can do to combat street racing:
1. Network with national organizations such as the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), NopiDrag Racing association (NDRA) and SEMA to support
your efforts. They are great resources and can provide community leaders with the information and tools that can ultimately save lives.
2. Talk with local speed shop owners and ask them to display RASR stickers and materials. Ask for their participation and collaboration in: your anti-street
racing efforts. Their businesses rely on safe and legal competition. In some cases, they may be able to donate items for your event or even sponsor schools
looking to create a car club or anti-street racing program.
3. Encourage local media to use anti-street racing public service announcement (PSA) materials. SEMA has PSA materials available upon request.
4. Utilize professional racers who are taking their status as role models seriously and supporting RASR and other programs. Ask them to speak at your
schools and in your community. SEMA has a network of role models who are willing to speak to youth groups regarding the perils of street racing.
5. Get kids to the track. The RASR Web site has a national listing of tracks. Find the nearest racetrack in your community and partner with it to create
teen race nights-offer discounted tickets, supply music and entertainment, and promote a car show competition to appeal to your target audience. Legal
racetracks are the single best solution to combat street racing. These programs offer participants the thrill of intense competition while providing some
things not available on the street-a controlled environment and official time slips to provide real proof-showing just how fast their cars are.
6. Some areas are not fortunate enough to have a nearby racetrack but a parking lot is the perfect place to "create" your own racetrack. Other alterna-
tives include non-operational airstrips or military bases. Coordinate with local businesses and community leaders to produce these programs. They can act
in just the same way as a racetrack without the cost of erecting a professional venue. Coordinate with local medical and fire departments to have a pres-
ence at your event. Safety is always first and foremost. NHRA, NDRA and SEMA can also help provide safety guidelines.
7. Talk to parents and use SEMA as a resource by visiting www.rasr.info.
8. Collaborate with law enforcement. Many law enforcement agencies already have safe driving programs targeted, at least in part, to stop street racing.
Communicate with them to see how your community leaders can help facilitate already existing programs. If your law enforcement agency doesn't have a
program, educate them on the resources available and work with them to develop one.
9. Communicate with high schools, colleges and community organizations. Target auto shop classes specifically as some already have their own car
clubs established. Encourage them to use RASR's educational materials. SEMA has a pro-
fessional class room curriculum available as,well as a supplementary video titled "Speed
ADVERTISING DEADLINE: Demons."

i \ CiCi's Pizza Launches Free Online Educational Games
Kids and Families Enjoy New Games and Sharpen Math Skills
.._ x Coppell, Texas (October 23, 2006) CiCi's Pizza launches two new online interactive games,
Numberzerk and Kaplink, on the CiCi's website at www.cicispizza.com. Both games are fun and education-
al for parents and their children to enjoy anytime and can be downloaded free of charge on both PC and
"CiCi's Pizza strongly believes in the value of education, and we are committed to our local schools and we want to do
whatever we can to help teachers and students," said Craig Moore, president of CiCi's Pizza. "Statistically, children who enjoy
school become life-long learners, so we've provided kids with online games that are educational and structured, but fun so that
they can keep learning at home."
In today's digital age, CiCi's provides an opportunity for parents to modernize family game night by taking it online. Family
game night provides quality time between parents and children and at the same time helps teach life skills such as patience,
concentration and perseverance.
Numberzerk, the first of two interactive online games, drills kids on their math skills just in.time for going back to school.
The game is designed for all ages offering various levels of difficulty. The game lines up tiles in a grid system, with each tile fea-
turing a number. Players are then asked to click on individual tiles to equal a sum displayed in a bubble in the top right hand
corner. For example, if the player is told to add tiles to equal the number six, the player could click on tiles displaying the num-
bers four and two to eliminate those tiles from the grid. When a player clears the board of all the tiles, they advance to the next
more difficult level.
"The United States is lagging behind many European countries in their math skills," said Moore. "For CiCi's focusing on
education and giving parents and teachers simple tools to help kids enhance their skills is one of our missions."

Giving Baby All The Health Benefits You Can -
(NAPS)-One of the best things a mother can do to give her baby a healthy start in life is something that may also help her own health. According to an
independent survey conducted by David B'urnett and Associates, 100 percent of new moms cite health benefits for baby as the number-one reason for choosing
to breastfeed. Only 44 percent said their own health was part of the decision.
"The extent to which breastfeeding affects a mother's health is rarely emphasized," said James Sears. M.D., noted pediatrician.
SThe benefits for mothers include:
~ Lowering the risk of certain diseases. Decreasing the risk of breast cancer is one of the more important health benefits. "Any amount of breast-
feeding is beneficial to mom and baby, research shows: two weeks is.good, four months is even better and more than six months is best as far as
protection against breast cancer goes." said Dr. Sears.
Some studies have also shown a decrease in ovarian and uterine cancers in women who breastfeed. Another known benefit is a lower risk of
developing type 2 diabetes. Lastly, breastfeeding mothers may develop strong bones and a reduced risk of osteoporosis.
Distress. Being a mother can be very stressful, especially when babies may not be sleeping for long stretches of time. Breast feeding or pump-
ing breast milk triggers and releases oxytocin 1 sometimes called the love hormone), which can help moms relax and feel less stressed.
Breastfeeding can also help a mother bond with a baby and may reduce postpartum anxiety and depression.
Shedding pounds. Nursing mothers burn extra calories, making it easier to lose the pounds put on during pregnancy. Milk production burns 200
to 500 calories a day.
SSave money and time. There's no formula to purchase and no bottles to heat up during the night. Since breastfed babies are generally health-
ier and get sick less often than formula-fed babies, mothers don't spend as much on doctor visits and medicine. Breastfeeding is free. A non-nursing mother can
spend thousands of dollars a year on formula and feeding accessories, while a quality electric pump is relatively inexpensive.

Jacksonville Tapped To Lead Nation
In Improving High School Graduation
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., October 24, 2006-- Duval
County Public Schools' Superintendent Joseph Wise and
Duval County School Board Chairperson Brenda Priestly
Jackson were in Washington, DC today for a special
announcement, declaring that Jacksonville, Fla. has been
selected as one of two pilot communities throughout the
nation (Shreveport, La.) for the new Pew Partnership for
Civic Change's Learning to, Finish Campaign.
Superintendent Wise and Ms. Priestly Jackson were joined
by Suzanne Morse, President of The Pew Partnership and
Nina Waters, President for The Community Foundation..
Aimed at engaging entire communities in the fight to
reduce dropout rates, the new Learning to Finish campaign
brings community members, practitioners and educators
together to share strategies and information on addressing
the issues of graduation rates. As a pilot community,
Jackson\ille will be provided an opportunity to work with
the Pew Partnership for Civic Change in identifying local
assets, best practices, and data collection and analysis tools
to assist in improving graduation rates throughout the area.
The Community Foundation is the sponsoring organization
that will lead this five-year initiative that is estimated to cost
$100,000 per year. The Pew Partnership will provide the
organizing model, the community discussion guides, the
mapping tool, and related research on dropout prevention
Over the past year, administrators with the Pew
Partnership for Civic Change 'have explored a number of
strategies to stem the national crisis of high school dropout
rates. While school reform and restructuring are relevant to
the mission, the Pew Partnership supports that a critical part
of the dropout solution comes from the community itself. As
a result, Learning to Finish was developed as an intervention
model based on five major areas: academic support through-
out the eighth grade year in partnership with parents,
schools, and students; implementation of proven dropout
strategies; a communitywide discussion on the issue and
possible remedies; a mapping of "stay in school" resources
that already exist; and an evaluation plan to chart progress.
"Jacksonville is a city of action that has made its young-
people's future a community-wide priority," said Suzanne
Morse, President, Pew Partnership for Civic Change. "From
literacy efforts and after-school programs to innovative pro-
grams in schools, Jacksonville has demonstrated a strong
commitment to the future of its children and the community

My sister has been a single parent for the past twelve years. I'm worried because she's now
dating but not managing her household. My niece and nephew have turned into rude, smart
mouthed children and in need of discipline. I've had arguments because I think my sister is
choosing a man over her responsibilities. There is no food in the house, her bills are late and
the children still haven't met her boyfriend. Am I wrong to get in the middle of this?
Cecilia (Tampa, FL)
It's okay to provide support to your sister and her kids but focus on their health and welfare
first and your sisters relationship second. These kids didn't become misbehaved overnight
and now that a man's in the picture, your sister's lifestyle is more noticeable. Unless there's
commitment on the horizon, there's no urgency for the kids to meet their mom's boyfriend.
You're respectfully doing the right thing with good intentions and can provide solutions.
I disagree with teen dating and feel kids shouldn't have dates until they finish high school.
All of the young teens in our family are dating and they are all a mess. The girls are going
through stress, crying and wearing a lot of make-up. The boys want to be thugs and are
going through many girls for the notches on their belt. I'm viewed as the old maid in the
family but my children are stress free because I don't let them date. When is the right age
to begin dating?
Anonymous (San Bernardino, CA)
With a good foundation teens can successfully have friends of the opposite sex. Regardless
of the word dating or relationship, the younger generation needs to learn bonding and social
skills as they interact with each other. Juniors and seniors do well with dating because their
life skills are becoming sharp and defined. There is no set age, but you need to loosen your
strings because when your kids get out there, they may get wild and cause you heartbreak.
I gave my bankcard to my son's mother for an emergency with an amount of money she can
withdraw and then give my card back. Instead of obeying, she emptied my account and
refused my phone calls for 2 weeks. Now she's mad because she tried to sue for child sup-
port and the dollar amount is less than what I've been giving her. I can't trust her and plan
to help with my son, but it's not my fault she'll get less money now. Should I feel guilty
M.J. Clark (Charlotte, NC)
You've played by the rules and there's nothing more you can do but be the best father you
can. The child's mother got what she deserved because she stole money from yoiu which
goes against God's commandments thus, Thou Shalt Not Steal. Karma has a way of swing-
ing back and trying to be cute with child support is a game that doesn't need to be played.
Consider this a lesson learned and if your child needs money or anything else, do it your-

My Lord, What a Morning!
By Ester Davis
Flying at night is about as exciting as watching grass
grow especially if it is an international flight.
On a recent trip to Frankfurt via Philadelphia, I boarded
Lufthansa Airlines for an all night flight. Our expected arrival in .
Frankfurt was 7:30 AM. Reading four newspapers, a glass of
wine and a nap was first on the agenda and the rest of the trip was
what, you guessed it... boring.
The hours have their way of passing. Checking out the
in-house monitor again after flying about six hours, we were still at 39,000.ft., with one hour
and thirty-four minutes to destination. Out of sheer boredom, I raised the window shade, not
really looking for anything, just something to do. At first glance there was nothing, but then
my eyes caught a 'streaker', a glimmer of brilliant red, perfectly balanced, drown with a
ruler. I became intense and mesmerized all at the same time because I recognized distinctly
and almost instantaneously it was a hint of light. In real familiar words, the 'crack of dawn'.
The crack was unmistakably awesome. A long strait straight of one single color in a neat nar-
row line similar to a continuous ribbon that has no cut off. My view spanned three windows,
thanks to my neighbor from Paris who is also watching. This was the 'crack of dawn' so
many used so loosely, with no concept of its majesty. I desperately started looking for pen
and paper to attempt recording the opening ceremony of the day. I tore a page out of a mag-
azine and started to write.
The first color started to fade away into whites, creams, lemon lite and mustard all
followed in an ultra slim fine point line. The brush rose-to-red color darted in and out with
a ballet dancer's strut. The flight attendant is serving breakfast now and I answer 'yes' to
whatever. I was absolutely spellbound and the 39,000 feet was a constant in my head.
In a split second more light seeking moments spread across the horizon like real but-
ter on whole wheat toast. The clouds now graduated from dialing dark to the muddy
Mississippi. The towering wing of the glorious workhorse 747 framed the moments. The day
emerged with a flood of billowing clouds bowing as a nervous debutante making her debut
to society. The muddy Mississippi clouds goes through some changes ranging from stone
gray to charcoal to blue gray with a sheen. The ribbon is ironed out to ruffles, spilling over
like the arrival of expensive gowns at a charity fashion gala. The 'crack of day' takes only
a few minutes and the light designated for the day is in your face. In a distance the clouds
carrying the remaining darkness yields to the light which reminded me of the rapid mighty
force of the Niagara (center) Fall in upper state New York, without the noise.
My Lord, what a morning!
The colors are all anew, now a sequence symphony of sand, copper, gold, all bold
and beautiful on the face of this new day. What happened next had me holding my breath
with my mouth opened. The creator, with a masterstroke starting painting a rush hour light-
ed 99-lane freeway across the sky using his wide angle lens. The only steadfast, uninovable
abound was the left wing of the 747. The day,:moving from darkness to light, opened up with
as much grandeur, pomp and circumstance as DSL when it was first introduced. So here we
were between man and the heavens witnessing the order of a new day.
For the first time in my life, I found myself writing an article I did not want to close.
There was so much to say and no more space, but in conclusion I surmised that this unfor-
gettable image had nothing to do with technology, space ships visiting Mars, electric or
hydrogen cars, nuclear energy, or natural disasters. This unforgettable image had no man
made intervention, no star war special effects. This unforgettable image had a very simple
six word message. There must be a God somewhere. And he has given me another day to
watch and see the grass grow.

"silent killers" because they usually present no indication
that disease is present. Fifty percent of people who suffer a
stroke, for instance, never experience symptoms.
Nonetheless, these prevalent diseases unnecessarily shorten
lives or change them dramatically by robbing people of their
mobility and independence. Typically, insurance companies
will not pay for these screenings if there are no symptoms
present. Unfortunately, if symptoms do appear, it is often
too late to prevent stroke, disability or death.
People age 50 and older are encouraged to be screened
before a catastrophic event occurs. Life Line Screening
offers convenient, painless, affordable and high-quality pre-
ventive health screenings in communities across the country.
Since 1993, Life Line Screening has worked with more than

Disease Facts One of the major diseases of the cardiovas-
cular system is atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty deposits
in the lining of blood vessels. Fortunately, you can modify
your risk for atherosclerosis. A healthy lifestyle will help you
stave off conditions related to atherosclerosis, including
coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, high
blood pressure, stroke, and aneurysms.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in America and
the number one cause of nursing home admissions. Someone
Suffers a stroke every 45 seconds in the U.S. The presence of
vascular diseases, such as peripheral arterial disease, carotid
artery disease, and abdominal aortic aneurysms, indicate a
strong likelihood that death, stroke or heart attack could fol-
low. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is closely linked to
cardiovascular disease, the number one killer of people
worldwide. Someone with PAD is 4-5 tunes more likely to
die from heart disease. An abdominal aortic aneurysm may
go undetected before it ruptures suddenly with an 80-90 per-.
S ent mortality rate. Osteoporosis affects 10 million
Americans and is the leading cause of hospital bed utiliza-
tion in the U.S.
Life Line Screening Tests and Procedures:
Highly trained sonographers conduct the hospital-quality
screenings using modern, non-invasive ultrasound technolo-
gy. Participants do not need to disrobe. Results are read by
board-certified physicians and mailed back to participants
within 21 days. If a sonographer discovers a problem that
needs urgent attention, participants are immediately

'The Super Star'
NBA Wants Players
To Leave Guns At Home

Heat superstar, who is becoming perhaps just as
valuable in the business world as the basketball one.

airwaves recently (AP Photo/Converse, David Adame)
IMIAMI Spike Lee is seated across from
Dwyane Wade, then shouts "action" as the steamy
gymnasium -- transformed into a temporary studio -
becomes silent. "Show us your game face," says
Lee, the die-hard basketball fan and renowned
director. Wade knows the line is coming. He turns to
the left, then back toward the camera, but can't hold
the serious look and breaks out laughing.
Indeed, these are fun times for the Miami
Heat's superstar guard,,who is becoming perhaps
just as valuable in the business world as the basket-
ball one. A new batch of Converse television com-
mercials with Lee, featuring Wade's newest shoe
line, hits the airwaves Thursday. A new Gatorade ad
campaign is coming this winter. "He's selling cell
phones for T-Mobile and sports-utility vehicles for
Lincoln. He's on the cover of GQ and countless
other magazines, too.
Dwyane Wade -- or "Wade, Inc." as he referred to
himself, albeit only half-seriously-- is everywhere.
Even he.can't truly believe how quickly it's all hap-
pened. Winning an NBA championship and taking
home the finals MVP in only his third season served
as the perfect capper to his meteoric rags-to-riches
story, the one where a poor kid from a tough neigh-
borhood in Chicago becomes a college star at
Marquette, a first-round draft pick, Shaquille
O'Neal's prime cohort in Miami and arguably the
game's hottest star.
He'll get his first championship ring next
Tuesday when the Heat open their season against the
Bulls. He signed a contract extension over the sum-
mer that could be worth.around $63 million. That
figure might look like chump change when he signs
his next deal sometime around.2010. And he's just
getting started. Wade averaged 27.2 points, 6.7
assists and 5.8 rebounds last season, then averaged
34.7 points in the finals against Dallas.His numbers
have gotten better each year, and in turn, so has his
marketability.Wade's profit from endorsement and
other business deals this season will dwarf the $3.8
million salary he's set to draw in the final year of his
first contract. And although he declines to discuss
specifics, clearly his earning power is already near
the top of the NBA star echelon.

NEW YORK David
Stern understands having
a gun to protect your
home. He's not convinced
carrying one on the streets
makes you any safer.
For that reason, the
NBA commissioner said
Wednesday that he would
prefer his players leave
their firearms behind
when they go out.
"It's a pretty, I think,
widely accepted statistic
that if 'you carry a gun,
your chances of being
shot by one increase drp'-
matically," Stern said dur-
ing his preseason confer-
ence call. "We think this
is an alarming subject.
that although you'll read
players saying how they
feel safer with guns; in
fact those guns actually
make them less safe. And
it's a real issue."
It's one that was raised
recently when Indiana's
Stephen Jackson shot a
gun in the air at least five
times outside an
Indianapolis strip club on
Oct. 6: He originally told
police he fired in self-
defense during a fight in
which he was hit by a car.
The NBA's collective
allows players to own
licensed guns, but they
can't carry them on any
league or team business.
Asked what kind of
firearm rule he would
want if collective bargain-
ing weren't involved,
Stern said: "I would favor
being able to have a
firearm to protect your
He added that walking
the streets carrying guns
was "dangerous for our
players," but said there
has been no further dis-
cussion with the union
about strengthening the
Union spokesman Dan
Wassermnan said it already
was bolstered in last
year's agreement, at'the
request of the league.
"In response to issues
raised by the NBA during
bargaining last year," he
said, "a provision was
added to the collective
bargaining agreement that
subjects the players to
discipline if they bring
any kind of firearm, even
if it's licensed, to an NBA
arena, practice facility, or
even a team or league off-
site promotional appear-
Wasserman also said
that the dangers of
firearms are discussed
during the rookie transi-
tion program, where play-
ers are "informed of the
legalities of it, what you
can or can't do, and the
pros of cons of having a
weapon are discussed
With the start of the
season less than a week
away, Stern also
addressed the arena situa-
tion in Sacramento. The
city's residents will be
asked to approve two bal-
lot measures on Nov. 7
that would increase local
sales tax as part of the
Kings' quest to replace
Arco Arena with a new
The measures are con-
sidered long-shots to
pass, and Stern seems to
understand why after
claiming that a deal
between the city and the
developer hasn't been
finalized."In the absence
of a deal between the city
and a developer, I don't
know what any fair-mind-
ed citizen of Sacramento
is being asked to vote on,"
he said. "I would love to
see them support an arena
development, but I would
tell them that they better
make sure that the city
gets with it to see whether
the deal can in fact be
done. Right now there is
no deal anyplace."
Also, Stern said he
expected.to rule on Larry
Brown's grievance: with
the Knicks sometime dur-
ing the second week of
the season. The Knicks
refused to pay the remain-
der of Brown's contract
after firing him one year
into a five-year deal.

Second Jaguars Player Arrested in One Month
Following the plane ride back from the Houston Texans game, defensive end
Bobby McCray got into his car and sped home with blue and white lights flashing,
two Vicodin in his pocket and no prescription. McCray was arrested and charged
with possession of a controlled painkiller, speeding, reckless driving and prohibited
use of certain lights. The Jaguars believe the drug charge will be dropped because
team doctors prescribed the pills. But the police report also said MeCray nearly
wrecked while racing two teammates. It was the team's second arrest in a little more
than a month.. Cornerback Brian Williams was arrested on drinken-driving charges
just days before the opener. He pleaded no contest, received six months probation
and was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.

landlord's house days after she received an eviction notice.
Nola Mac Williams was also accused of supplying gasoline to start the Nov. 25 blaze, which
caused more than $100.000 in damage. No one was injured.
The landlord. James Braco. owned the trailer park where Williams was living, and he had
recently sent her an eviction notice, investigators said.
The boy told authorities that Williams said Braco was getting ready to sell the house, and she
did not want him to make any money off it. Williams then drove the boy to the house and told him
how to burn it down, according to prosecutor Lori DiGiosia.
She told her grandson to tell his parents that the $150 she gave him was for his birthday and
She pleaded guilty Tuesday to arson, breaking and entering with the intent to commit arson, and

7-Eleven Pull s Drin k Named Cocaine
store operator 7-Eleven Inc. is

uct's name: Cocaine.
The company acted after
getting complaints from par-,
ents of teens, who are a big
part of the drink's target audi- :
"Our merchandising team

promotes an image which we
didn't want to be associated
with." said Margaret Chabris.

with the name spelled out m
what are meant to resemble
lines of white powder.
According to the label,.
each 8.4-fluid ounce can con-

feine -- more jolt than a cup of
coffee, a can of Coca-Cola or
the leading energy drink. Red
Bull -- but no cocaine.
The drink is made by
Redux Beverages of Las
Vegas. which markets it as
"The legal alternative."
Hannah Kirby, the compa-
ny's managing partner, said 7-
Eleven stores didn't account
for many sales of the drink. It
hit shelves in New York and
California im August and is
now available in more than a
half-dozen states, mostly in
and liquor stores.
This isn't the first time:
Cocaine has been' yanked.
Some stores in the-New York
area pulled the drink after
local politicians complained.
It's all part of the company's
plan to stand out inthe fast-
growing energy drink market.
'"We knew the name was
going to be provocative," said
Kirby, whose husband, James.
created the drink.
SKirby said the company
wasn't glorfying an illegal
drug in the eyes of its young
consumers. "Kids understand
the difference between a con-
trolled substance and an ener-
gy drink," she said.
:Chabris, the 7-Eleven
spokeswoman. said the
Dallas-based chain is recom-
mending that franchisees not
stock the drink.
Chabris said a vendor that
isn't recommended by 7-
Eleven "dropped the product

All In One Travel Mug
SMy wife has Rheuatoid Arthritis and small handed mugs
I hurt her hands. So, I designed the "All In One Travel Mug" to I
Sbe lightweightwith a large, soft handle. She loves it.
I clean restaurant vent hoods for a living which puts me on
S1 j the road driving several hundred miles per day. En routetoa
job, I'll typically stop for gas and a beverage. Using my "All In
One Travel Mug", most convenience stores and truck stops
will only charge a small "refill" price for my drink and my mug
is designed so that the beverage will last for hours.
The "All In One Travel Mug" comes with its own, specially de- I
I- signed, holder that is alustable to fit your car or truck doors. I

Kerry Washington: Sweet Natured And Powerful On Screen
Photos 2006, Andre' B. Murray/www.brunagency.photoreflect.com
By Rych McCain
Washington was a true
delight to interview.
She was promoting
her latest film The
Last King Of Scotland
Whitaker- and James
McAvoy. Her striking
physical beauty was a
mirror reflection of the
inward grace, poise
and elegance she so
film, the Wayans
brothers Little Man
was a box office hit
this past summer. She
also appeared in the
blockbusters Mr. &
Mrs. Smith starring
Brad Pitt and Angelina
Jolie and The
Fantastic Four as well
as a. recurring role on
the hit TV series
"Boston Public." What
may be her most
definitive role to date
is that of Della Bea
Charles' real life wife
in Ray starring Jamie
Foxx. She won an
NAACP Image Award
for the role as well. We
kicked back in her suite
at the exclusive Four
Seasons Hotel in
Beverly Hills, as
on her role as the late
Kay Amin, the real life
second wife of the late
Idi Amin, military dic-
tator of the central
African country of
Uganda during the
1970's, on which the
film is based.
What is the experi-
ence playing women
like Robinson and
Amin and does it alter
her life after she per-
forms a role like that?
"I think every role
has a really important
impact on my personal-
ity. I think that is sort of
why characters come
into my life, because I
need to learn from them
at that point of my life.
Actors get the benefits
of reincarnation with-
out ever having to die.
We get a lot of different
lifetimes out of a per-
son's pivotal moment in
their lives, so we get to
learn things from the
journeys of our charac-

Congrats are in
order for one of young
Tavares. She is a nom-
inee for a Prism Award
for her role as
Cranberry St. Clair on
the Nickelodeon Show
show ceremonies will
take place in.December
in Hollywood and we
will keep you a tuned to
all of the details!
We are loaded down
with the music 411,
especially from the
Houston, Texas based
OBPR camp with my
boss lady Nancy Byron
at the helm! 40 Glocc
and label mates Mobb
Deep were forced to
spend, the night in
Atlanta due to flight
delays, having missed
their connecting interna-
tional flight. They were
in route to Chile to per-
form when their flight
began dropping and ris-
ing and dropping again.
Soon after, passengers
noticed flames and
smoke pouring out of
one of the engines. As
found religion while
pondering their fate,
the pilot announced
that the plane had lost
an engine and that they
were going to attempt
an emergency landing
into Tampa, Florida.

Catch A Fire, A Thriller Celebrating A
South African Hero
By Dwight Brown, NNPA Film
In the 1980s South Africa,
apartheid rules. The races are
separated. .Civil unrest reigns.
Patrick Chamusso (Derek Luke,
Antwone Fisher), an apolitical,
blue-collar Black South African
man, lives miles outside of
Johannesburg with his wife,
Precious (Bonnie Henna), and
their two kids. His job as a fore-
man at the massive Secunda oil
refinery gives his family a com-
fortable life. Patrick and
Precious aren't blind to the
indignities of. apartheid, but
determined to stay out of the
Life changes for them the
night a freedom fighter from the
MK, the military wing of the
African National Congress, sets
a bomb off at the refinery.
Patrick gets arrested by the
fiendish South African Police,
headed by Nic Vos (Tim
Robbins), a Colonel in the Police
Security Branch. He is beaten,
tortured and humiliated but can't
be bullied into a confession until
the police imprison and brutalize
his wife. He confesses, is freed
and flees to Mozambique a
changed man. Patrick joins the
MK and is determined to blow up
the Secunda refinery to send a
strong message to the world that
Apartheid must end.
This amazing film is based on
the courageous life of Patrick
Chamusso, who changed the
course of history in South Africa
and suffered the consequences
with a harsh, lengthy prison sen-
tence on infamous Robben Island.
Screenwriter Shawn Slovo put
a face on the legions of activists
who fought apartheid when she
built her script around the local
hero, Chamusso. His imperfect
life, rocky marriage and infideli-
ties humanize him; the chain of
events that lead to his point of no
return provide the frame-
work for this gripping,
seat thriller. Slovo gives
her characters depth: Vos
is not a two-dimensional
villain, but a patriot on the
wrong side of history. She
graces the script with
poignant dialogue: "Our
fathers taught us that we
can never be free until we '
forgive." Her screenplay -'
evolves seamlessly from
family drama, to political
thriller, to.spiritual awakening.
Australian director Phillip
Noyce (Clear and Present
Danger, The Quiet American
and Rabbit-Proof Fence) makes
no missteps with this racially
charged film. He gleans superb
performances from the entire
cast. The action sequences are
perfectly choreographed and the
film maintains a constant ten-
sion that frays the nerves.
Actor Derek Luke formally
played adolescents. This chal-
lenging, anti-hero role has
Derek Luke as Patrick Chamusso.
turned his young man screen per-
sona into that of an adult. His stal-
wart performance rings true, his
consistent accent is flawless and
his emotions run deep. Bonnie
Henna, as the conflicted, laconic
character Precious, deftly express-
es thoughts and feelings with sub-
tle facial expressions. Robbins as
the antagonist finds the humanity
in Vos that would escape most

earnest, heart-\\Tenching drama.

What were the most
significant things that
from the real Kay
lights up at this ques-
"Yeah, she really did
have an affair behind
Amin's back," she says
"and she was cut up and
displayed publicly in
that way with her limbs
put in the wrong places
(while in the trunk of
her lover's car). I think
what I learned was in
some ways what I hope
people learn when they
watch the film. I hope
that we've (the film-
makers), done a good
enough job about being
truthful, honest and
authentic so that people
walk away looking for
the truth within them-
selves, asking them-
selves weather or not
they are taking respon-
sibilities for actions in
What was her take
on the real Amin? She
is in high intellectual

"I think what we see,
because of Forrest's
brilliant portrayal, is a
man who really wants
to do a lot of good. I
mean he comes along
and represents the Pan-
African movement. He
made changes in the
constitution that still
exist in Uganda because
they did so much good
for the country. He
allowed for Black peo-
ple to be self supporting
in Uganda for the first
time by kicking out the
Asians. I don't agree
with the methodology,
but it's important that
Africans started to be
porting. He changed the
educational system so
that kids were not just
learning in English, but
learning in their tribal
languages as well. All
those things I think, are
important to African
identity and to African
strength. But I think he
didn't necessarily have
the political education,
the psychological and
all, to be the kind of
leader that he wanted to
be. That caused even
more insecurity in him
and spiraled him into a
place of anxiety, para-
noia, fear and brutali-
The film was actual-
ly shot in Uganda
where it all happened
and Washington soaked
in the experience of the

friends with the
"To be honest, I had
been a little ambivalent
before this film about
going to Africa because
I wasn't sure of this
idea that you are sup-
posed to go the Africa
and feel at home," she
says. "I was a little bit:
afraid that wouldn't
happen and I didn't
want to be a bad Black
person. This film
allowed me to put all of
that aside, go to Africa
and become an African
for two months."

After a hard but safe
landing, the plane was
met with fire trucks and
Another 45 minutes into
the flight would have
meant an ocean landing.
^ betcha they weren't
calling women "H's" and
"B's," smoking joints,
partying and cussing or
talking crap during
those tense, unsure
moments before that
crash landing. That
proves "who" and
"what" the real deal is!
Hope they took note!
The fellas scrapped the
Chile trip and booked to
New York instead.
We are happy to
introduce the newest
member of the N.W.A.
family tree, Young
$oprano who is ready to
be crowned "Prince of
the West Coast." The
Gardena, CA., native
who honed his skills
with The Westside
Connection and debuted
on the Mack 10 Presents
Da Hood LP, has signed
ing deal with New
Group, LLC to push his
2Gd Music label.
artist Big Tuck has a
smash new single out,
"Ain't No Mistaken,"
featuring his South
Dallas childhood friend
Erykah Badu, from his
debut LP "Tha
New Orleans' MC
MR. Marcelo aka
Brick, has announced
the formation of his
own label, Brick
and publishing compa-
ny. Mr. Marcelo is a
member of the recently
formed New Orleans
group Magnolia Boys,
whose members include
Ceto, Herb and Hot
Beezo. Their new single
What It Do is expected
soon from their as-yet-
untitled debut album.
Their mix tape,
Something In The Water
will drop later this

Krump dancing stars
from last year's-hit
movie RIZE, i.e.,
Young Daisy, Ms
