U. S. Marshals are the nation's primary fugitive hunting
organization and historically hate been able to apprehend
more federal fugitives each year than all other national law
enforcement agencies combined.
In Arizona this week, federal and state authorities asked an
estimated 70.000 fugitives to go to church so that they can sur-
render to the law. They are calling this new initiative a "one-
time opportunity to take their first step toward a second
chance" and has named it 'Fugitive Safe Surrender.'

Ed Bradley: A Gentleman and Journalist
Marc H. Morial, President/CEO, The National Urban League
"I guess I was lucky or I
came along at the right time,
because I didn't see overt
racial discrimination directed
against me. I think that I was
thrown into the soup, and
someone said, 'Negro, sink or
swim.' And I learned how to
swim," recalled CBS News
veteran Ed Bradley in a 2002
USA Today magazine inter-
That's how Bradley, who
died rather unexpectedly to
the public at least, earlier this
month, of leukemia at 65,
summed up his introduction
to broadcast journalism with
the same unassuming cool he
approached an interview sub-
ject. But Bradley not only
proved he could swim: he
showed the world that he
could fly to the top of his
During his 25 years at "60
Minutes," where he produced
500 pieces, he established
himself as one of television's
most enduring fixtures rank-
ing among the TV's all-time
most influential African
Americans. His reporting
spanned a wide range of sub-
jects -from wars to corruption
- as did his one-to-one inter-
views from Timothy
McVeigh to Michael Jordan
to Bob DOylan and his most
favorite Lena Home.
In a recent interview with
National Public Radio, Don
Hewitt, creator of the popular
newsmagazine, said the rea-
son for Bradley's success was
that he served as "everyone's
surrogate" in that he "asked
all the questions the viewers
want to ask."
Throughout his career that
spanned more than four
decades, he amassed numer-
ous awards, including 19
Emmys and four Peabodys.
In 2000, he won the
Directors Association's Paul
White Award, joining the
ranks of Edward R. Murrow,
Walter Cronkite and Peter
Jennings, among other distin-
guished journalists. There,
Hewitt told the audience that
he had hired Bradley because
he was a member of a minor-
ity. "He's a great gentleman.
He's a. great reporter and if
that ain't a minority, then I
have never heard of one," he
recounted to NPR.
The jazz afficionado with
an earring proved a towering
presence at the yearly New
Orleans Jazz Fest, where I
met him in the 1990s as
mayor and where he was'
known to get up on stage on
occasion to ham it up with the-
likes of musician Jimimy
Buffett. In CBS' memorial
tribute for Bradley, the musi-
cian revealed that he got "so
muchjo) out of\ watching him
attempt to be a shameless per-
former." Sadly. Bradley was
scheduled to host the fall gala
for Jazz at Lincoln Center, a
favored cause he supported
and a radio broadcast he host-
ed that won him one- of his
Peabody aw~ards. Despite
Bradley's moments at Jazz
Fest. he shied awa\ from self-
promotion: he let his
immense body of work and
his gentlemanly demeanor do
the talking. He was so lowkey
and unassuming that even his
'60 minutes' colleagues were
caught by complete surprise
regarding his illness. The
Bradley tribute, which aired
four days after his death, gar-
nered a 12.4 rating, beaten in
the first half-hour by only
football that .had overrun its
time slot. It serves as testa-
ment of the respect, love and
admiration the American pub-
lic had for him.
Bradley was a friend to
many and everyone love him,
even his interview subjects
who endured his tough ques-
tioning walked away on good
terms. Wynton Marsalis,
artistic director of Jazz at
Lincoln Center, called
Bradley "a man of unsur-
passed curiosity, intelligence,
dignity and heart." How
could anyone not love him? It
was difficult at best.
A graduate of Cheyney:
State University, Bradley
originally started out. as a
teacher in his hometown of
Philadelphia but a voluntary
gig as a DJ'announcer with a
local jazznews station -
WDAS -- prompted him to
change course into broad-
cast journalism. A popular
radio DJ at WDAS- Georgie
Woods had visited Cheyney.
State. a teacher's college, to
speak to students about the
use of community resources
to outreach to kids. WDAS'
role as community conduits
became very apparent in 1965
when riots broke out in the
city. Bradley knew all the key
players but the music station-
had little if any remote
recording equipment, forcing
him to conduct interviews
and file stories over a pay
phone. The station took note
and offered him a job for
$1.50 an hour. Bradley con-
tinued to juggle teaching with
journalism until his act
proved unmanageable: He
realized he wasn't suited to be
in the classroom and had no
desire to attend graduate
school to improve his stand-
ing within the educational
establishment. So he fol-
lowed his mentor WDAS jazz
DJ Del Sheilds to New York
City to work for WCBS
When he first arrived at.
WCBS, he was one of three
African Americans on staff.
In 1971, he moved to
Paris to string for CBS News
before being sent to cover the
Vietnam War, one of the few
black journalists stationed
there. Before joining "60
Minutes" in 1981, Bradley
held a variety of positions
within CBS News including a
stint covering 'the White
House in the mid-1970s, as
anchor for the "CBS Sunday
Night News" from 1976 to
1981 and as principal corre-
spondent for "CBS Reports"
from 1979' to 1981.
In 2005, the National
Association of Black
Journalists bestowed upon
Bradley both a Lifetime
Achievement honor and
Salute to Excellence Award
for his story on the reopening
of the 50-year-old racial mur-
der case of Emmett Till That
story him his final Emmy.
SBradley's profound influ-
ence and the high standards
het set will carry on. He may
not be here in body but he'll
be here in spirit asking the
tough questions those that
the average Joe wants to ask.

"To everything there' is a season
and a time to every purpose under the
heaven. A time to be born, and a time
to die. "-Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.
No one wants to talk about death
and funerals. Too depressing.
Unfortunately, death is a fact of life
and there simply is no way to avoid it.
For indeed there is a "time to be born
and a time to die."
You may want a traditional funer-
al service with visitation and a member
of the clergy conducting services at a
church or a funeral home. Would you
want an open or closed.casket? Maybe
you want a special friend to do the
eulogy or family members to read
scripture passages or poetry. Any
First, you should shop around and
talk to a few funeral directors. Yes, let

Resist one-stop shopping, which
can include such things as prayer
cards, thank-yoi notes, and guest reg-

for the funeral home in their neighbor-

Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth burial, a
cemetery plot should be purchased; if
above ground, a mausoleum crypt. If
cremation is the choice, plan disposi-

Clara White Mission's
Pearls & Cufflinks Gala
Citi's presentation and welcoming of
Clara White Mission's Pearl's & Cufflinks
Gala at their Southside campus was quite an
event. Local celebrities and government offi-
cials treated the attendees at Citi's auditorium
following dinner with very exceptional enter-
Before dinner and the entertainment that
followed there was a Silent Auction, Jewelry
Sale and the taking of photos. And when the
entertainment began we were really mesmer-
ized with the breadth and diversity of talent
among local celebrities and government offi-
First there was Radio Personality Arthur
Crofton and JAA Exec Michael Stewart
that had a script that was equal to any of the
awards shows we view on television. They
were so natural and diversely talented them-
selves as they joined the Sassy Ladies Dance
Troupe. They were sensational! The Sassy
Ladies routines choreographed by Ms.
Latricia Ledet were superb, as well.
As the evening moved along there were
more surprises! Did you know that TV 4's
Mary Baer was an accomplished flautist or
that Sports Reporter Sam Kouvaris could
really 'belt' out tunes with flair? Well, both of
them entertained us with beautiful music.
Property Appraiser Jim Overton and
City Council president Michael Corrigan
are both musically and comedicly talented.
SAgain, who would have guessed this?
Ritz Theatre & LaVilla Museum
executive Director Ms. Carol Alexander
joined by Ritz Staffer Ms. Tones Thomas's
videoed skit on Ms. Eartha M.M. White was
very poignant! When Ms. White, portrayed
by Ms. Thomas, sang 'Precious Lord' the live-
ly audience was hushed.
And then there was actor Rahaman

Drug Exposure Before Birth Could
Affect Kids' Decision Making Skills
.GAINESVILLE, Fla.-- The part of the brain responsible
for making most decisions about how to behave seems to
develop less quickly in children exposed to cocaine before
they were born, University of Florida researchers have
Using a new form of magnetic resonance imaging,
researchers compared 28 adolescents exposed to a mix of
cocaine and other drugs in the womb with 25 children whose
mothers did not use cocaine during pregnancy and pinpoint-
ed subtle differences in how the brain's frontal lobe devel-
oped. Researchers noticed that pathways in the frontal lobe,
which connect to other parts of the brain to send information,
were not as well-defined in children exposed to cocaine
before birth, according to findings published this month in
the journal Pediatrics.
The children exposed to cocaine also fared slightly worse
on tests designed to assess skills linked to the frontal lobe,
such as when to act and when to stop, said Tamara D.
Warner, a UF research assistant professor of pediatrics and
the study's lead author.
"We actually found that there is a relationship between
the behavior and the brain," Warner said. "There were signif-
icant associations with how well children were able to do
certain tasks and how well-developed the connections in the
Some of the children whose mothers did not use cocaine
were exposed to alcohol, tobacco and marijuana, but they
did not exhibit the same subtle differences in the brain.
Because the mothers of children exposed to cocaine used
multiple drugs. ho\ these drugs interacted was likely a big
part of the problem. Warner said. The mothers had taken
cocaine and varying combinations of alcohol, marijuana and
tobacco, and the interactions among these drugs often are
complicated, sometimes producing additional toxic sub-
Hollywood Films Portray
Biracial Couples Negatively
If Shown At All
.GAINESVILLE, Fla. ---Despite growing naunbers of
mixed couples m America, mo\ ie relationships between men
and women of different races are most likely to be short-
lived, oversexed and downright dangerous, a new University
of Florida study finds.
"A man and a \\oman of different races in the movies
have a greater statistical probability of dying than of getting
married or dating seriousl," said Nadia Ramoutar, who did
the research for her doctoral dissertation in mass communi-
cations at UF and is no\% a communications professor at
Flagler College in St. Augustine.
White \women have not appeared in an interracial rela-
tionship in a top-selling film since "Pulp Fiction" in 1994,
she said. American Indian \women have not been portrayed
this w\ay since "Dances with Wolves" in 1995. and the last
time an American Indian man was part of such a union was
in "The Trial of Billy Jack" in 1974.
The findings are important. Ramoutar said. because pop-
ular films do more than entertain: They are a powerful means
of transmitting culture from one generation to the next.
"The results of this study sadly show that racial and eth-
nic segregation in romantic relationships is heavily practiced
in Holly\\ood blockbuster films and has become more com-
mon rather than less common in the past four decades,"
The study analyzed interracial relationships in block-
buster Hollywood films between 1967 and 2005, beginning
with the landmark social commentary "Guess Who's
Coming to Dinner." Ramoutar selected the 15 top-grossing
box office hits of each year for her sample. Of these, she
found 36 films with interracial couples.
Forty-two percent of the women in such partnerships
were victims of violence. "Lying on the table like a piece of.
sushi" is how police described Chen I. the drug-addicted,
sexually deviant female character in "Rising Sun" responsi-
ble for three men's deaths \\ho dies herself.
The scripts use certain interracial combinations more
than others and avoid some entirely, the study found. No
Arabic or eastern Indian appears in an\ film, for example.
The most common racial coupling \vas a white male with
an Asian female. w\ho was often portrayed as a "model
minority." in that she was smarter, more compliant and less
sexually .aggressive than women of other races, Ramoutar
'But while Asians were the most common women of
color, representing nearly one-quarter of interracial
romances, Asian men were practically invisible, Ramoutar
said. The only major Asian male in such a relationship in
nearly four decades was Jackie Chan's character in the 2001
movie "Rush Hour 2." she said.
And a Hispanic "\oman playing a CIA double agent who
briefly falls in love with Chan's character marks the first
time a Hispanic female appears in an interracial relationship
at all during those years, said Ramoutar.
Hispanic men also were marginalized, cast in only three
movies, Ramoutar said. The women they were paired with,
incluPling Michele Pfeiffer's character Elvira in "Scarface,"
.were drug addicts with no purpose in life .ut getting high,
stances, Warner added.
To get a better glimpse of the frontal lobe, researchers
used a form of imaging that allowed them to see how water
flows through pathways linked to other parts of the brain.
How the water moved through these channels showed the
researchers how developed these pathways were in each
child's brain. The pathways were more mature in children
whose mothers did not use cocaine and not as well-formed
in the children whose mothers had, the study showed.
The children, who ranged in age from 10 to 12 and were
from similar socioeconomic backgrounds, also participated
in two behavioral tests that Warner likened to "Simon Says"
types of activities. On one test, children were asked to look
at the word "red" but then name the color of the ink used to
write the word. This showed how well they were able to
ignore the instinct to read the written word and give the cor-
rect answer. On another test, which Warner likened to "con-
nect the dots," children were asked to connect a series of
numbers in order on a page and then perform a similar exer-
cise alternating betw een niunbers and letters. The children in
the drug-exposed group named fee\er colors correctly and
took longer to adapt to connecting both numbers and letters,
Including observations about how the brain looks and
behavioral test results in the study.is important because it
links an actual brain change in children to a behavior change,
said Lynn T. Singer, a professor of pediatrics, psychology
and general medical sciences at Case Western Reserve
University who also studies prenatal cocaine exposure in
"This is one of the first findings that sho\ s there is a dif-
ference in the way the brain works in (children exposed to
cocaine)," Singer said. "It's a vern important study in that
we're getting new e idence of specific brain changes. The

New Report Finds Pain Affects Millions Of Americans
ATLANTA,-- One in four U.S. adults say they suffered a
day-long bout of pain in the past month, and one in 10 say
the pain lasted a year or more, according to the government's
annual, comprehensive report of Americans' health, Health
United States, 2006, released today by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for
"We chose to focus on pain .in this report because it is
rarely discussed as a condition in and of itself -- it is mostly
viewed as a byproduct of another condition," said lead study
author Amy Bernstein. "We also chose this topic because the
associated costs of pain are posing a great burden on the
health care system, and because there are great disparities
among different population groups in terms of who suffers
Low back pain is among the most common complaints,
along with migraine or severe headache, and joint pain,
aching or stiffness. The knee is the joint that causes the most
pain according to the report. Hospitalization rates for knee
replacement procedures. rose nearly 90 percent. between
1992-93 and 2003-04 among those 65 and older.
Some of the other pain statistics include:
One-fifth of adults 65 years and older said they had
experienced pain in the past month that persisted for more
than 24 hours.
Almost three-fifths of adults 65 and older with pain
said it had lasted for one year or more.
More than one-quarter of adults interviewed said they
had experienced low back pain in the past three months.
Fifteen percent of adults experienced migraine or
severe headache in the past three months. Adults ages 18-44
were almost three times as likely as adults 65 and older to
report migraines or severe headaches.
Reports of severe joint pain increased \with age, and
women reported severely painful joints more often than men
(10 percent versus 7 percent).
Between the periods 1988-94 and 1999-2002, the per-
centage of adults who took a narcotic drug to alleviate pain
in the past month rose from 3.2 percent to 4.2 percent.
The report also finds that the United States spent an aver-
age of $6,280 per person on health care in 2004. Seven per-
cent of adults under 65 said they passed up getting needed
care in the past 12 months due to costs.
The report also notes a number of other significant health
Life expectancy at birth reached a record 77.9 years in
2004. up from 77.5 in 2003 and from 75,4 in 1990. Since
1990, the gap in life expectancy between men and women
has narrowed from seven to just over five (5.2) years. At
birth, life expectancy for females is just over 80 years and
nearly 75 for males. The gap in life expectancy between
white and black Americans also has narrowed from seven
years in 1990 to five years in 2004.
Infant mortality fell to 6.8 deaths per 1,000 live births
in 2004, down from 6.9 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2003.
Heart disease remains the leading killer, but deaths
from heart disease fell 16 percent between 2000 and 2004,

MAYOR RECEIVES WORKING GROUP'S REPORT,
DIRECTS MORE ACTION STEPS AT JFRD
Mayor John Peyton today received the report of the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue
Department Working Group, announcing that he has directed an additional series of short
and long-term actions to address training and diversity issues at the Jacksonville Fire and
Rescue Department (JFRD).
The mayor initiated a number of changes within JFRD in response to a report issued by
the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission on August 8. Additionally, a JFRD Working
Group was created and tasked with identifying further steps that should be taken to create
a diverse, equitable and supportive work environment within the department.1The actions
announced today are in response to their discussions, as well as extensive conversations
with Jacksonville's business and faith leaders.
"As I have previously stated, my goal is a fire service that is socially and culturally
diverse, treats each member with respect and is.without gender or racial bias," said
Peyton. "When it comes to operations, JFRD is one of the very best fire and rescue
departments in the nation. I expect to see that same level of commitment and profession-
alism brought to bear to create a positive and supportive work environment throughout the
department. I will hold my management team accountable to be the change agents need-
ed to make that happen."
The working group, facilitated by local attorney Bill Scheu, is comprised of 17 current or
retired JFRD employees; the newly appointed Director of Fire and Rescue, Dan Kleman,
and the City's Chief Administrative Officer, Alan Mosley. They began meeting on August
"I don't know that I've ever seen a set of people come together in such a spirit of
progress," Peyton said. "This group's commitment to excellence within our fire.and rescue
service is obvious. Their hope and mine is that the JFRD will become the model for
other departments and for the community. Our city owes them a debt of gratitude."
The action steps initiated today include:
o Reinforcement of the "Zero Tolerance Policy which states that "any behavior at any
level that discriminates or creates a hostile.work environment" will not be tolerated. The
policy has been implemented by Director of Fire and Rescue Dan Kleman.
o Creation of an internal team to undertake a review of department policies regard-
ing human relations, discipline, discrimination and sexual harassment, a step that was also
recommended by the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission. The team will be chaired by
the Chief of Rescue, Charles Moreland, and will consist of the city's Assistant Labor'
Relations Officer, Maryanne Evans; the head of JFRD's human resources office, Richard
Greenwood, and the JFRD Equal Employment Opportunity Officer, Donald Sapp, along
with Charlene Taylor-Hill from the Human Rights Commission. Their review will be com-
pleted by January 31, 2007.
o Establishment of a Discipline Review Board consisting of the JFRD Deputy Chief,
Chief of Operations and Chief of Rescue. The board will review all disciplinary actions
above the level of written reprimand and present to the Director to ensure consistency.
This effort will be staffed by the Department's Compliance Officer, Broderick Edwards.
o Development' of a Study Circles program for all senior leadership in JFRD. The
effort will be established and led by Reverend Pete Jackson, formerly the City of
Jacksonville's Chief Community Officer. Study Circle participation will be mandatory for the
Director, Deputy Director, Division Chiefs, Battalion Chiefs and District Chiefs.
o Creation of an internal team to evaluate and revise JFRD's standard operating pro-
cedures and other procedures employed by the department. The group, chaired by the
Chief of Operations, will complete their revisions by the end of February.
o Utilization of professional best practices in testing for promotions by working with
reputable and trusted private firms to administer and score all promotional exams.
o Establishment of a "Community Ride" program to allow elected officials and com-
munity and business leaders to learn firsthand about the work and life of JFRD employees.
This would include time spent responding to calls as well as exposure to station life.
o Increased internal communications efforts, including the development of a regular-
ly-occurring newsletter. The first newsletter will be produced and published by the JFRD's
STraining Department and the city's Public Information Office in December.
o Encouraging participation by JFRD employees in the City of Jacksonville's continu-
ing education programs. The departmental goal is to double the number of participants in..
the city's tuition reimbursement program in 2007.
These efforts are in addition to the mayor's previous direction for all JFRD employees to
receive enhanced diversity training. The City of Jacksonville has selected Gardenschwartz
and Rowe, a nationally acclaimed organization with extensive experience working with
large and complex organizations and corporations, to provide diversity training.
The city will partner Gardenschwartz and Rowe with ICATT Consulting, a Jacksonville-
based diversity consulting firm currently providing training to other city divisions. All JFRD
employees, both uniformed and civilian, are required to attend the four-hour training ses-
sions. More extensive diversity and leadership training will be required of all senior man-
agement. Classes begin Dec. 4.
Additionally, Peyton has directed Director Kleman to provide recommendations by the end
of the year on how the JFRD will achieve the following longer-term goals:
o Train all employees at the lieutenant level and above in accordance with the pro-
fessional qualifications and standards established by the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA). This new training program will contain a detailed plan that, at aimini-
mum, requires completion of NFPA 1021 Standards and minimum education requirements
for all supervisory personnel. NFPA standards are recognized nationwide for their ability to
successfully identify the knowledge and skills necessary for successful performance-at the
supervisory and management levels in a professional fire and rescue department.. Florida
Community College at Jacksonville (FCCJ) will be a key partner in this overall effort.
o Establish a plan for the rotation of District Chiefs and Battalion Chiefs throughout-
various positions at headquarters. This will help senior officers become more familiar with
executive management duties and expectations as well as departmental polices and
issues. A pilot program for rotation of first year firefighters will also be established.
o Review the promotional process in detail to ensure that JFRD is promoting
employees in a manner consistent with the knowledge and skills identified in NFPA 1021.,
This may include requiring certain levels of training or education as a prerequisite for tak-
ing a promotional exam.
Develop a more aggressive recruiting program to enhance diversity within the depart-
ment. The program will include greater outreach, expansion of the Community-based
Scholarship Program and a possible expansion of the FCCJ certification program. This
expansion would enable students to access additional scholarships and loans. Toward this
effort, Mayor Peyton has directed the transfer of an additional $50,000 to help ensure
diversity in the department's recruiting and hiring efforts. New recruiting materials are cur-
rently under development foi use in this effort. .. '
The last initiative that Mayor Peyton announced today was the plan to work with the
Duval County School Board and FCCJ to .establish a Career Academy for Fire Science
and Emergency Medicine at a Duval County High School on Jacksonville's Northside.
This would provide high school students interested in a career in the fire service an oppor-
tunity for dual enrollment in high school and the Fire Science and Emergency Medicine
program at FCCJ.
Such a program would increase the applicant pool and allow young people to maximize
their use of time in high school to realize credit toward their Emergency Medical Technician
certification or Firefighter certification.
"Superintendent Joseph Wise and Presidents Wallace and Bronson are exited about this
prospect and have pledged to work toward making it a reality," said Peyton. "Everyone is
a winner in this scenario. Young people can make good use of their time in school, the
educational institutions will meet student needs and the Fire Department will have a
pipeline of excellent recruits who will work every day to protect property and save lives in
'The men and women of the JFRD consistently provide exceptional service to our com-
munity," the mayor concluded, "and they can be counted on day after day to protect and
serve. knoww I can also count on them to work together to change attitudes and behav-
iors within the department and create a Fire and Rescue Department that is truly inclusive
and representative of the best our community has to offer."

Michael Bryant's Pioneering
Legacy Lives on at Beaver
.s~u ..... .r Street
Michael Lee Bryant, 62, was stricken by a heart attack
last Saturday while working on a clean-up project in his
Springfield neighborhood. Dying as he lived, in service
to his community, Bryant was widely known for his pio-
neering spirit and his tireless dedication to improving the
quality of life for all.
IB As Director of Urban Initiatives for FreshMinistries,
Bryant was passionate about possibilities, seeing the
potential for success and economic growth in even the most impoverished neighbor-
hoods and individuals. "He had the God-given ability to see what was truly important
in every situation, and the resolve to push for positive results," said Vanessa Boyer,
FreshMinistries' Associate Director of Urban Initiatives. "When Michael got involved,
good things happened and people benefited."
Four years ago, Bryant approached Rev. Robert V. Lee, Chairman and exec-
utive director of FreshMinistries, with an idea. "Michael's idea was to start a core-city
business incubator that would help launch entrepreneurs on the path to success,"
Within a year, Bryant's idea was a reality. A 25,000 square foot professional
office facility offering modern workplace amenities for startup and existing small busi-
nesses, Beaver Street Enterprise Center has flourished during the past three years.
Today, with a strong, talented staff, an active Board of Directors and a growing group
of community leaders who act as mentors and advisors, tenants at Beaver Street
Enterprise Center are achieving the success that was envisioned by Bryant.
"From the very beginning, Michael was charged with the development of
Beaver Street Enterprise Center," said Lee. "While every FreshMinistries initiative is
a 'roll-up-your sleeves team effort,' Michael's involvement with Beaver Street was
huge and ongoing. It was his baby."
Just two days prior to Bryant's sudden demise, an event occurred that Lee
called "the tipping point for Beaver Street Enterprise Center'" and "a joyous day for
M ichael and FreshMinistries."
On Thursday, November 9, the Jacksonville Hospitality Institute (JHI) cele-
brated its grand opening at Beaver Street. It was the culmination of a long-term
dream for Bryant and one that he was instrumental in bringing to fruition. Bryant
beamed as he approached the lectern to address a large gathering of community
partners and well-wishers. Acknowledging the hard work and tenacity required in
bringing together exactly the right people to partner with JHI, which offers compre-
hensive career training for people seeking employment in the local $5 Billion tourism
industry, Bryant said, "Together, we are greater than any one of us alone. This
Jacksonville Hospitality Institute, like all of us who have partnered to make it happen
Here at Beaver Street, is heavily rooted in helping people."
Commenting on the timely correlation between the opening of the JHI and
Bryant's triumphant last visit to the Center, Jackie Perry, Manager of Beaver Street
Enterprise Center, noted "Michael was known for doing eternal things in the name of
the Lord. He truly represented the FreshMinistries' philosophy, 'If we can dream it
and the spirit of God is in it, all things are possible."'
In addition to the, burgeoning growth represented by the Center's new
Jacksonville Hospitality Institute, applications of several prospective tenants are
being reviewed and one new tenant, Nangwik Services, an international wire
telecommunications company affiliated with the highly successful Alaskan company,
Chenega Corporation, has come on board.
"Chenega means 'fishing hole." Perry said, "Nangwik Services is a 'great
catch' for both the Center and the Jacksonville community."
According to Perry, one of the first goals of Nangwik's President, Robert
Bowe, is to begin building a strong infrastructure in Jacksonville by partnering with
Edward Waters College and bringing students in as interns to mentor and develop
their skills in this emerging technology. "This kind of strong community relationship
building is exactly what Michael Bryant worked so hard for our tenants to achieve,"
said Perry. "His legacy lives on."

JACK9ONVILLE'8-_LONG* T.tME- FRIEND
By The Florida Star Staff MLK Memorial National Park
I can remember the night
that I arrived home to watch the
news on my two-day-old color television set. I was a student and employee at
Howard University. My friend, who later became my husband and father of my chil-
dren said as we watched the story of Dr. King's assassi- I I I I
nation unfold, "This country needs to build a national
memorial in Dr. King's honor." Once I start to practice 9 l
medicine and have the money,. I will build it by myself, if .
I have to." :
Well, Dr. McLaughlin, the groundbreaking cere-
mony for such a memorial is making your dream come
true. The country is building the memorial. ,
President Clinton signed legislation in 1996 iA
authorizing the memorial and President Bush led the
groundbreaking ceremony before a crowd of 5,000
Monday. The President said, "We give Martin Luther
King his rightful place among the many Americans hon-
ored on the National Mall."
The Dr. King memorial is scheduled to open in
the spring of 2008. It will occupy a four-acre plot on the
banks of the Tidal Basin, near the Potomac River. Both
the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorial are near the river.
Many are in favor of a memorial. The Links Inc.,
one of the leading African-American women's public
service organizations, committed to a $1 million grant to
the National Civil Rights Museum; AARP contributed one '
million dollars to the construction of the memorial and .
Cocd-Cola donated the land,' valued at $10 million to I '

YPREH iVE C Facts For Teens: After-School Programs
P N E. VIOJ .The hours immediately after school can be a dangerous time for teenagers.
R F C 0 1" R : F (C F F R During these hours, teens are more likely to commit violent crimes and to be the vic-
tims of violence than at any other time in the day or night. And, while many
Teens use this time productively, others spend these hours engaging in
risky behaviors that can harm their future prospects. .Fortunately,
increasing numbers of teens are staying safe and using this time to learn,
grow, explore, and make a difference by participating in after-school programs. For teens ages 12 to 17, this
risk peaks at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, the end of the school
day. Violence by teens peaks in the hours
immediately after school. While crimes by
adults peak at 11o'clock at night, violent
crimes by juveniles peak
between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.
on school days. In fact,
juveniles injure more vic-
tims in the hours around the
close of school than any other
time of the day. Many teens get involved in dangerous
and risky activities during the afterschool hours.
Millions of children and teens spend
the hours after school unsupervised.
Unfortunately, children and teens that
are not supervised by adults or
involved in structured activi-
ties after school are much more likely to: use alcohol, drugs, and
tobacco receive poor grades and skip or drop out of school engage in
risky sexual activity get arrested and carry and use weapons. -
After-School Programs Make A Difference...
After-school programs, whether run by schools, churches, or other, community groups, provide positive environments and enriching activi-
ties that truly interest and benefit teens. For some
teenagers, they can make the difference between failure and success as they get ready to.enter the adult world. In after-school programs, teens
can participate in a variety of interesting and challenging activities. Some programs give teens a chance to learn to play-an instrument, learn a new
sport, or join a theatre troupe. In others, teens learn to work with computers, get help with homework, or make a difference by volunteering in their
communities. After-school programs give teens the opportunity to build on what they have learned during the regular school day, explore new inter-
ests, and develop relationships with caring adults. Quality after-school programs have been shown to: Decrease juvenile crime; Decrease
the likelihood that teens will be victims of violent crime; Decrease teen participation in risky behaviors, such as drug, alcohol, and tobacco use;
* Lead teens to develop new skills and interests; Improve teens' grades and academic achievement; Encourage teens to reach higher in plan-
ning their futures; and Increase teens' self-confidence and social skills. Unfortunately, too few teens have access to quality after-school pro-
grams... Not enough after-school programs are available for teens. In: one recent survey: More than half of the teens (52 percent) said they wished
more after-school activities were available in their neighborhood or community. Six in 10 teens (62 percent) that were currently unsupervised dur-
ing the week said they would be likely to participate in after-school programs if they were available. More than one- half of the teens (54 percent)
said they would watch less television or play fewer video games if they had other things to do after school.
-What You Can Do
Find an after-school program that is right for you!
After-school programs give you a great chance to meet new people, explore new interests and develop new talents and skills. How do you find a
program that is right for you? 1. Check with your school. Ask a teacher or the principal at your school about whether your school offers an after-
school program. 2. A number of other organizations in, your community are likely to offer after-school programs. Depending on your interests, you
may want to check with your local Parks and Recreation Department, nearby churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious organizations,
or the Police Athletic League. Check your local Yellow Pages under "Youth. Organizations," "Youth Centers," or "Teen-Age Activities." Alternatively,
contact the national offices of youth agencies find their local organizations. Some national organizations that are likely to be active in your commu-
nity include: the YMCA (www.ymca.net), Boys and Girls Clubs of America (www.bgca.org), Girls, Inc. (www.girlsinc.org/gc), Camp Fire Boys and
Girls (www.campfire.org), and 4-H Council (www.fourhcouncil.edu). 3. Talk to your friends and other students about what they do after school. They
may be able to tell you about good programs in your area.

Students For Change:
Reducing Crime and High School Drop-Out Rates
--Unprecedented summer "bridge" project in Fayetteville, NC empowers youth to positively impact crime as well as the high school
drop-out rates while providing affordable, quality housing for low-income families who reside in their own community.--
Fayetteville, NC (BlackNews.com) High school dropouts!! There has been much media coverage sur-
rounding this one topic lately...and rightfully so. It is a silent epidemic that if allowed to progress can nega-
tively impact generations of students to come. Recently, the topic has. made the front cover of Time's April
17th issue. Oprah did a two-part special report in April 2006. Even Bill and Melinda Gates sponsored a
,4y at t* national study about the problems in U.S. high schools. As the Time article pointed out, "Virtually no com-
S, munity, small or large, rural or urban, has escaped the problem." While many communities across America,
especially minority ones, struggle with this "silent epidemic" infesting our high schools, concerned citizens
'. in Fayetteville, NC sponsored a grass root project which resulted in motivating and empowering a group of
B disadvantaged and at-risk youth to not become a victim of this silent epidemic. National figures like the Gates
and Oprah became the catalysts for this group of citizens to do their part to reverse the declining trend in their
M respective community. And what a difference they made.
Dr. Robert Melvin with some of the
youth who participated in Operation Plagued with increasing crime as well as an increasing number of high school dropouts, Bonnie Doone, a
youth who participated in Operation
Hand-Up 2006 sub-division of Fayetteville, NC became the battle ground for Operation Hand-Up, a summer "bridge" proj-
ect designed to encourage disadvantaged and at-risk youth during the summer to:remain in school while
offering them an alternative course of action to juvenile-related criminal activities. Operation Hand-Up was the brain-child of Dr. Robert Melvin,
a military veteran and a 1978 graduate of Terry Sanford High School. Dr. Melvin has since devoted his life to yduth development. Once a student
who considered dropping out of high school himself, Dr. Melvin partnered with the Fayetteville Police Department, the Community Development
Center (CDC) of Hope, a 50(c)3 non-profit organization (Dr. James McGrady, Jr, President) and the New Beginnings Outreach Ministries I (Venus
Ford, Pastor) to make a quantifiable difference in a community inundated with poverty and crime.
Armed with the philosophy that "you can't reach the youth, if you can't get them to come," Dr Melvin partnered with the CDC to purchase
a duplex which was in desperate need of renovation. The intent was to provide the youth with a worthwhile project to serve, as a "magnet" to "draw"
the youth in order to empower them through a creative approach of drawing parallel comparisons to the renovation effort and their lives,.The strat-
egy was to give youth.a purpose supported by sound, holistic principles and values; expose them to positive alternatives; instill the desire to suc-
ceed; and provide the necessary physical resources to ensure success. The ensuing results?? Simply unprecedented!!! Within three months, not only
were the youth able to raise the property value of the complex but began changing the condition and appearance of the neighborhood as well. The
families,local schools and law enforcement benefited as well. Of the 75 participants which included military retirees, college students from NC
A&T; local high school and elementary students; and adult community volunteers, 30 were school-age students. Each student vowed to become
ambassadors of the cause for their respective schools by remaining in high school until graduation. Additionally, they would encourage other stu-
dents to refrain from criminal activities. The project even served as a juvenile gang intervention resource for one participating family. Noteworthy
was the fact that.despite the environment in which the participants were subjected to, not one student had a reason to participate in any criminal
activity throughout the summer. That is success!!!
These youth have done something which is unprecedented in this area. They provided affordable, quality housing for low-income families
who reside in.their own community. Because of the success of this demonstration project, discussions are underway for the potential formulation
of a one-of-a-kind non-profit organization whose purpose will be to promote high school retention while offering alternative courses of action to
crime by encouraging students to become actively involved in specifically-designed, high school-related community activities and programs.
In appreciation of these youth's efforts; to promote future efforts like these; and to mark the end of our inaugural program, the group spon-
sored a community event which included an official ribbon cutting ceremony, open house and an ol' fashioned fish fry on Saturday, October 14,
2006 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm at 4987 Galveston Drive, Fayetteville, NC 28303. A website has been established to commemorate the efforts of
these industrious youth. For a virtual tour, visit us at:

Singer Alicia Keys Pours Heart into AIDS
Fight in Africa
WENTWORTH, SOUTH AFRICA -
Alicia Keys did not have to come here, to
this small town outside of Durban on.South
Africa's eastern coast,, where the infection
rate from HIV/AIDS is believed to be twice
"Copyrighted Material the national average: 40 percent of the peo-

and songwriter, the opportunity to come
here and help build a clinic was reason
enough to cross the ocean and confront a
seemingly insurmountable challenge. She
came, she says, "To be the voice of the peo-
pie. To represent real people and real life,
real struggles, real pains, real joys, real things that are really there, you know?
"I never wanted to be caught up in all the fantasies and the frivolity," she said.
"You know, just, I never cared about that."
The humanitarian organization Keep A Child Alive has enlisted Keys as an
ambassador to raise awareness about AIDS in Africa, where it hopes to attack the pan-
demic through a simple philosophy: $1 per child, per day for life-saving drugs, with
nearly 100 percent of donations going toward treatment.
The clinic in Wentworth will provide the town's residents with HIV testing and
treatment, as well as counseling for alcohol and drug dependencies, and courses in
nutrition and women's empowerment.
But the effort, though substantial, is a small counterattack in a war with many,
Overcoming Stigma and Taboos
Twenty-five years after the AIDS virus was identified, stigmas, taboos, and
falsehoods continue to surround the disease, especially in a place like Wentworth.
South Africa has-as many as 6 million people living with HIV/AIDS it's more than any
other country, but the accurate total is difficult to estimate because so many people
refuse to be tested.
Until very recently, the nation's President denied the link between HIV and
AIDS. And in a widely publicized trial this year, a major politician claimed he would
bathe after sexual intercourse to avoid transmission of the virus -

There are reports of babies as young as a few

The epidemic is spreading quickly in the coun-
tries of the former Soviet Union and China. At one of the
largest AIDS treatment centers in India, the women's
ward is so crowded that each bed is shared by at least
two patients who rotate in 12-hour shifts. But there is no
medication to help them fight their disease. There are
few visitors because when a woman gets AIDS, she is
deemed a non-person.

says Erika Rose, Keys' longtime friend and sometime song-writing partner. "I
mean, we are talking about something that is layered so deep here, people just
suffer in silence."
The legal justifications for apartheid, South Africa's official state policy
of segregation, were largely removed by 1991, but its legacy persists in the
nation's treatment of HIV/AIDS. The challenge in Wentworth is unique, accord-
ing to Keep a Child Alive Founder Leigh Blake, because much of the popula-
tion here is of mixed race a community Blake says has been neglected.
"They were dumped here in this township of Wentworth mostly to work
for the surrounding industries," Blake said. "When apartheid was abolished,
there was a lot of focus on the black community and quite rightly they'd been
desperately, painfully treated through the centuries. But the colored communi-
ty also needs help."
"Colored," the phrase commonly used in South Africa to refer to people
of mixed race, was a phrase that the American visitors had to get used to. But
eventually, Rose said, she realized it was another source of connection for her
and for Keys both of whom, in South Africa, would be considered "colored."
"It really took someone explaining, you know, this is what they call it
here, that's what they call themselves, colored, you know. I'm colored here,"
Rose says. "Alicia is colored too, which is another sort of insane connection ...
People see her as one of them and she sees it the same way."

place, Keys found a familiar lan-

said, and serves as a source of

doesn't know anything about the religious affiliations of the children who
receive its gifts.
"We can't take a chance on sending a talking Jesus doll to a
Jewish family or a Muslim family," Grein said Tuesday. "Kids want a gift
for the holiday season that is fun."
According to one2believe's Web site, the button-activated, beard-
ed Jesus doll recites Scripture such as "I tell you the truth, no one can
see the kingdom of God unless he is born again" and "Love your neigh-
bor as yourself."
Toys for Tots distributed .18 million stuffed animals, games, toy
trucks and other gifts to children based on financial need in 2005.

Tips On Selling Your Current Car Yourself
(NAPSA)-lf you are buying a
new car and want to get rid of your ..- .
present vehicle, it can often be to your -- '
benefit to sell the car yourself. That's 1 _-Mi
because you can often get more by 4 -
selling a car than you would get for it --
as a trade-in. Z
Chances are, if your car is over .
four years old, a trade-in will only yield .
about 25 percent of the market value. ----. -',.
For many people, the difference could o f -. --. 7
be several thousand dollars.
However, sometimes you have to spend a little bit of time and
money on marketing to save a lot-particularly when it comes to selling a
used car. Here are some tips:
Give the inside and outside a thorough cleaning or spend the money
to have it detailed. Let no nook and cranny go overlooked.
* Gather up all service and repair records. Be up front about any inci-
dents to build trust with any potential buyers.
* Take lots of pictures. Include as many details as possible, especial-
* Used-car buyers are always wondering three things: What's the
mileage? Was the odometer rolled back? Was the car ever in a wreck or
Usually, you can set a buyer's mind at ease by giving him or her a
copy of the vehicle's history, such as a Carfax Vehicle History Report. That
way, they won't have to take just your word that the mileage has not been
rolled back or your car has never been flooded or junked in a wreck.
* Placing a classified add online can often be effective. Web-based
classified ads at places such as AutoTrader.com and cars.com can help
you connect with potential buyers who live outside of your immediate area,
without eliminating local buyers.
Experts recommend using an online classified site where your ad stays
until the car sells.
* If you have a home page, create your own ad and post it there. You
can scan in pictures and drawings and a copy of the car's maintenance
records. You may even be able to add links to other services, such as
* If you're more comfortable with the low-tech approach, you can
always post flyers around town, in major traffic areas like malls or shopping
centers and in community bulletins.

Web site at www.carfax.com.
You can often set a buyer's mind at ease by giving him or her a copy

The "McDonald's" Approach to Worship
841 PRUDENTIAL DRIVE, 12th FLOOR
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA 32207
November 18, 2006
PAI~'T C 1
By Ester Davis
A recent USA Today article stated that the McDonald's
Corporation is now buying restaurants that sell Mexican pizza, sushi
and health foods. Why is a corporation that serves 45 million people
daily, in 29,000 restaurants, in 121 countries, amassing $40 billion
dollars in sales in 2000, making such a major change in what it sells. *
The answer is staggering. The world's largest fast food chain have. '
begun to face a harsh reality: It's not about hamburgers anymore. It's ?
about survival. One of the best known brands on earth is reinventing
itself. The stock is down, Europe's mad cow scares, weak currencies,
etc., etc. Organizations, like people, grow up, mature and die. Why -
is McDonald's reinventing the organization? Now, McDonald's will
probably never stop selling hamburgers, but if any organization on the down side of its life cycle
does not systemically reinvent itself, it will die.
Too often churches wait until it's too late. The prayerful answer is that God won't let it
die. The naked truth is that ten churches a day in the United States go out of existence. Remember
all of those New Testament churches? They are now all dead. Church splits are at 'forest fire'
levels. Often people are finally open to change when their church is about to go under. By then
the proposed cure often ends up killing the patients. The history of dying churches is recorded
on a long list. The founders usually want to preserve the past and the next generation is getting
in their way. The major factor that keeps a church on the upside of its life cycle is a mission with
a vision that focuses outward.
Speaking of vision. Brentwood Baptist Church in Houston became the first to have a
McDonald's franchise on church grounds. The church commissioned demographic research to
see how it could serve its 10,000 members and reach out to many more. This church reportedly
has 80 difference activities every evening. The .11 acre church campus found a shortage of qual-
ity restaurants in the area. Because proceeds go to the church's youth activities, no sales tax is
applied. Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas has 15.ball fields, fitness center, coffee
shop and a food court. The 17,000 member, Castle Hills Baptist Church, outside of San Antonio,
just bought six residential lots to add parking. Churches are not just for Sunday mornings any-
more. They are 24/7. Why are churches getting bigger? Is bigger better? Some proclaim that
churches are getting bigger for the same reasons your CostCo, Home Depot, Lowe's and Wal-
Mart are expanding to 'super' centers and becoming one-stop-shops. Sidebar: You have read
hopefully my past articles on mega churches, because its one of my most fascinating subjects.
Last week I went to a suburban city to have lunch with my grandson Josh. He started
introducing me to his friends and telling me where they w ere from. These fi1fh graders were from
all over the world. Brazil, Egypt, Mexico, Afghanistan. It was amazing. The whole school was
completely ethnically diverse. Further research yield that this was not the exception. This was
a normal setting. Suburban America today is a. multi-ethnic, heterogeneous society. Indian,
Chinese, Korean, Caucasian, Hispanic and African Americans all live and work together. Where
are the multi-cultural, multi-ethnic churches that reflect the diversity of our society? There are:
but an unplentiful few try ing to rewind, but there are no diversity instruction manuals for adults.
Children live comfortable without instructions. With all of this growth, vision, hotels,, big
screens, traffic jams and concrete, church worship for the most part comfortably rest within their
own cultures. The worship hour remains the most segregated. I really want to believe that the
world ide body of Christ is supposed to function as a single multi-ethnic, multi-culture body.
The McDonald's formula is the same for all their 29.000 restaurants in 121 countries.
The world's largest fast food chain caters to simple taste and preferences. The equipment is the
same. The menu is the same. Thel are on ever corner. The coffee is their own blended brand.
They sell the same thin in London that they sell in Australia. The chicken nuggets are the same
price plus'minus a few pennies in the high rent district as in the ghetto. The golden arches are the
same coloring Vermont as in Russia. The drive through window takes the chauffeured dri en limo
and the 20-year old pickup full of trash. And everybody uses the w white plastic utensils to spread

Under Wallace's watch, he directed the movement of the SIAC and
the development of the annual Pioneer Bowl, the only bowl game that hosts
HBCU schools and one of only two Division II bowl games.
The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference would like to send
their sincere thoughts and prayers to the Jackson family. Current SIAC
Commissioner, Dr. William E. Lide, stated "Commissioner Wallace will sure-
ly be missed; he directed the SIAC in a positive way and paved the way for
the SIAC to be as great as it is today. He is a pioneer and his loss will be

Police Nab Suspect
In Air Conditioner
HOUSTON A burglary suspect tried something very uncool, trying to hide in an air condition-
ing unit at a Houston shopping center on Monday.
At first, officers who responded to the burglar alarm couldn't find anyone. But, they later
noticed the man atop the building and summoned a ladder truck.
Officer John Dickerson said the suspect was nabbed inside an air conditioning unit. Copper
wire was stripped from several other industrial AC units at the complex.
Charges are pending.
Car Salesman Quick
Draw Fouls Robbery
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. The bandit should have paid closer attention to the used car salesman's
"Friends of the NRA" ball cap before pulling his gun. Auto dealer Greg "Lumpy" Lambert, a Knox
County commissioner, said a young man walked onto his sales lot Saturday and was determined to
buy a 2005 Ford Focus.
Lambert said he became suspicious during the test drive when the man didn't want to haggle
over price or even ask for a mechanical inspection.
Presented with the sales paperwork, the man pulled a .25-calibei handgun from his pocket,
apparently to rob him, the connussioner said. '
Lambert, a National Rifle Association member:who.has a ball cap from the group and has."
offered free rifles with car purchases in the past. was ready w-ith his ow ..380-caliber pistol.
"I think we probably leveled our sights close to the same time." Lambert said. "I think I got a
bit of a drop on him. Told him to drop his weapon, and he said he didn't want trouble."::i
The suspect fled. but left behind his driver's license.
Kane Stackhouse, 19. was charged Sunday with attempted aggravated robbery and was being':
held in jail with bond set at 515.000 bond, the Knox County Sheriffs office said.
Lambert acknowledged the suspect never asked for money or made demands.
"I didn't give him a chance to." Lambert said. "It was a tense situation. and a little scary."
Inmate Allegedly Urged To Strip For Pie.
ADRIAN, Mich. Two
SLenawee County Jail officers

to strip and run naked around
his cellblock in exchange for a
piece of cherry pie. "We took.

S"But it kind .of rubbed me

Now that the 90 days are
up and no one claimed the
money, city officials have
been wrangling over what to

investigation found that the
male inmate who was urged to

The conversation turned to
joking about what the inmate

"THE PEOPLE'S STATION"
Hosea Chai chez Stars In CW
Photos 2006 by Andre' B. Murray/www.bernagency.photoreflect.com
By Rych McCain
The CW Network
recently debuted a new
comedy series called
"The Game." It is
about the ups and
downs and the realities
of professional foot-
ball players and the
women in their lives.
The show is produced
by Emmy Award win-
ner Kelsey Grammer
("Frasier"). One of the
stars of the show is
Hosea Chanchez who
plays a young black
Malik Wright who is:
managed by his mom
played by sitcom vet-
eran Wendy Raquel
Robinsoni ("The Steve
Chanchez was born
in Alabama and reared
between there and
Atlanta. He knew he
would be an actor by
age ten. His grandpar-
ents who reared him
recognized his talent at
an early age and
encourage his creative
received joy when
Chanchez would enter-
tain their guests by
singing, dancing or
acting out scenes from
sho\\ s he saw on televi-
sion. One such show
was "The Fresh Prince
of Bel Air." Young
Chanchez said "I can do
that, I want to be Will."
His first acting experi-
ence came at the age of
fifteen when he was cast
in the national play
"Glory" where he
played the role of
"Theodore." The story
centers around three
youngsters trying to
make it out of Harlem.
Chanchez loved the
thrill and the rush of
being .on stage and-
entertaining the audi-
ence. If there had been
any question about act-
ing, it was put to rest
when he stepped on
stage for the first time
When asked to
describe basis of the
show Chanchez replies,
"The back drop is the
NFL. The foreground
for the show is our rela-
tionships i.e., the trials
and tribulations that me
and my mom
(Robinson) go through
on a day to day basis,
Chanchez continued on D-5

Black Actors Shine In Bobby, Movie Depicts Life Of U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy
By Dwight Brown, NNPA
On June 4th, 1968, dur-
ing his presidential cam-
paign, Bobby Kennedy
was prophetic: "Those who
live with us are our broth-
ers they share the same
short, brief lives." Then in
a flash, an assassin's bul-
lets shattered an American
dream. Moments building
up to this tragic, historic
incident are ingeniously
"re-imagined" with 22 fic-
tional characters in this
Emilio Estevez's assem-
bles a cross-cultural mosa-
ic of people on that fateful
day at the Ambassador
Hotel in Los Angeles,
California, A haughty sous
chef (Laurence Fishbume)
an angry kitchen worker
(Jacob Vargas) and a saint-
ly busboy (Freddy
Rodriguez) confront each
other over racial issues,
make personal attacks and
then find common ground.
Two retired hotel employ-
ees (Harry Belafonte,
Anthony Hopkins) bicker
and reflect on their long
lives. Young campaign aids
(Nick Cannon, Joshua
Jackson) work themselves
into the ground .for
Kennedy's election. Other
aids take an acid trip cour-
tesy of a whacky drug deal-
er (Aston Kutcher).
A hotel manager
(William H. Macy) cheats
on his wife (Sharon Stone),
a manicurist, with a
(Heather Graham) whose
best friend (Joy Bryant,
Antwone Fisher) disap-
proves. An alcoholic singer
(Demi Moore) berates her
(Estevez). A young woman
(Lindsay Lohan) hastily
marries an adolescent
(Elijah Wood) to prevent
him from being drafted and
sent to Vietnam. A la
Crash, top actors skillfully
breathe life into their per-
sonae as disparate story-
script is inundated with
enough involving character
arcs to fill ten soap operas.
Rich and poor. Black,
white and Latino. Young
and old. Male and female.
Liberal and. conservative.
Infidelity, draft dodging,
alcoholism, aging, hallu-
cinogens, racism... Human
frailty and social ills com-
building to a fated climax
that is greater than its parts.
Harry Belafonte and Nick Cannon in Bobby.
Kennedy's assassination is
not only a tragic epoch but
,an equalizer too, proving
everyone is mortal.
Estevez's thoughtful dia-
logue is provocative,
humorous, touching, lov-
His astute direction
miraculously blends this
with archival footage that
depicts the end of an era,
when a political icon ques-
tioned the country's direc-
tion and time stood still.
The scene in the hotel
kitchen, when Fishbume,
Vargas and Rodriguez play
the dozens and offend each
other is one of the film's
most dramatic moments.
It's well crafted, astutely
observant of the ntrica-

pivotal character that has
the most to gain by
Kennedy's election and the
most to lose by his death.
This is Cannon's rite-of-

He nails it. Shot on a low
budget, which started at
around $5.5 million, this
insightful work is as
impressive as any big
budget. movie. Michael
Barrett, director of photog-
raphy, honed his skills on
"TV's CSI: Crime Scene
Investigation" and "CSI:
Miami" and gives the film
an impressive cinema ver-
it6 feel. Patti Podesta's pro-
duction design and Julie
Weiss's costumes aptly
recreate the period.
Richard Chew's judicious
editing trims the proceed-

really wanted to keep
the show authentic to
situation comedy and
not make it so much
about the field, but to
make sure that people
know that this is truly
about these relation-
ships and what happens
within the NFL. It's not
really about playing
football; it's from a
female's perspective. If
it were from a guy's
perspective it would
probably be more con-
tact and more about
what happens on the
field. But it's from a
female' perspective, so
it's from behind the
scenes of the football
players. They show us
and the world what it's
like to be a wife, girl-
friend or mother of an
Since real football
players and actors alike
are high profile to the
public, does Chanchez's
personal off screen life
draw a parallel to that of
his character? He laughs
and says, "Good
Question, Ask me that a
few months after the
show airs." When the
ladies do begin to-
swarm, what kind of
attributes should they
bring to the table?
Again, that charming
smile appears and he
begins to run his list
down; "sweet, gentle,
strong head, strong
mind and not too out
there. I don't care for a
woman that goes out too
much but someone who
likes to stay at home,
kick it, lounge and
relax. If Chanchez were
an animal, what kind
would he be? "I'd be a
lion so I could rule the
world like the lion rules
the jungle." What is cer-
tain is that with his
looks, youth, talent and
Chanchez will be force

a)d .a cameo by Bruce
Willis. This movie would
have been better served
as a made-for-TV proj-.
ect. It centers on a cor-
rupt meat packing plant
that uses and abuses ille-
gal workers, mainly from
the -Mexican border.
They also cut corners on
plant safety and process
the meat under question-
able unsanitary condi-
tions, compromising the
health and quality of the
meat: There is little
action with predictable
dialogue and situations.
The only redeeming
value of this film is that it
does make you question
how the meat you eat
was processed. I can't
even say this film would
make a good rental.
FICTION stars Will
Latifah. and Emma
Thompson. This movie
i about IRS agent
Harold Crick (Ferrell)
who begins to hear a
voice in his head that is
narrating the story of a
novel being written by a
writer (Thompson), who
is unaware that the char-
acter she has created on
paper is an actual living
person. The real- Harold
Crick and .the novel
character Harold Crick
become one:in the same.
This unusual situation
and takes a turn for the
worst when the real
Harold Crick becomes
aware that his character
in the novel _i-ll die.
That means he too \vill
die the same way in real
life, so he sets out to stop
Will Ferrell is on a
hot streak this year with
his last movie
blowing out the box
office in mega bucks
fashion! Because of that,
this movie may do the
same, butit doesn't live-
up to the hype. The high-
light is a brilliant per-
formance by Dustin
Hoffnan as college liter-
ary professor, Dr. Jules
Hilbert. You almost can't
go wrong with Hoffman
in a film. Queen Latifah
holds her own as the
writer's aide Penny
Thompson hit the nail
square on the head with
her portrayal of the
eccentric novelist Karen
Eiffel. Unless you are
more of the intellectual
movie type, this film is
not your cup of tea.
