President Bush Visits
Georgia Tornado. Area
President Bush answering questions from victims of
Americus, Georgia's tornado.
President Bush handed out hugs to people in
Americus, Georgia who survived killer tornadoes, and he
mourned the 20, including eight high school students,
who died in the storms that hit Georgia and Alabama..
"Out of this rubble will emerge a better tomorrow,"
He climbed over piles of concrete, insulation, broken
glass and textbooks at the shattered high school in
Enterprise, Ala. Be strong and set an example for the other
1,200 students, he told the student government president
and three others.
"Tough devastation" were the words President Bush
used to describe the tornado-rathged areas of Americus
and Sumter County.
Bush was met in Americus by Rep. Sanford Bishop,
Sen. Saxby Chambliss and Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-
Also meeting Bush were Gov. Sonny Perdue as well as
Sumter County Sheriff Pete Smith and Chief Deputy Col.
Eric D. Bryant. Bush greeted relief workers and talked to

Jax Police Officer Arrested
A somber Sheriff Rutherford announced
Wednesday afternoon that a JSO employee
had been arrested. The employee in question
was Patrol Officer John Hairston a 10-year
veteran Jacksonville police officer whom
family members had nicknamed "Happy
The charge included two counts of mak-
ing false statements to federal investigators
and one count of theft of govern-
ment property. Specifically, f
Hairston is accused of stealing ,
over $3,000 from vehicles that
were used in the undercover sting
after Jacksonville police were
tipped that Hairston had been
stealing money from drug dealers
during traffic stops, police said.
Rutherford said "We had
launched an investigation one
month ago. Without revealing the
tactics used in our undercover
operation, the investigation con-
firmed our suspicions. We called
on the FBI to assist us with a sec-
ond investigation, which again,
confirmed the criminal activity."
According to court testimony,
the initial sting involved stealing
$1,270 from a rental vehicle set
up and put under surveillance by the
Sheriffs Office integrity unit 6n Feb. 12.
The money was in the center console of the
vehicle and was not turned in to the Sheriffs
Office property room after Hairston
searched the vehicle, the indictment said.
Hairston was called to the vehicle as a pre-
arranged part of the sting, police said.
Guilty To Using
Baby As Weapon
Chytoria pleads guilty to
hitting her boyfriend with
their 4-week-old son, Jarron
Graham wherein their son
suffered a fractured skull.
She acknowledged that on
October 8, 2006, she
grabbed her son and said, "I
swung him like a bat,"
speaking of her little baby
boy. She told investigators
that she had been out drink-
ing the night before and
argued with her boyfriend
Deangelo Troop. The argu-
ment turned into shoving
and pushing and before she
knew it, she had used her
son as a weapon.
The baby has made a full
recovery and now he and her
other children are in the cus-
tody of her parents.
The judge ordered a psy-
chological examination of
Graham before sentencing
A second sting included participation
by the FBI during which $2,137 was taken
from a stolen car searched by Hairston.
That money was in a shoe box in the vehicle
and was not turned in to the police property
During his appearance before U.S.
Magistrate Howard Snyder, Hairston spoke
softly and said little. When Snyder asked if

Hairston declined to comment as he left,

ters and his pastor.
"To wear this badge is a privilege,"
Rutherford said. "For those proven not to be
worthy, they will lose it."

On 'February 27,
another candidate joined
the ranks of those run-
ning for the office of
President of the United
States. The candidate has
a platform focused on
one issue-health cover-
age for all children this
The candidate is ten-
year-old Susie Flynn.
She may be young, but
she knows her numbers:
Congress can provide
health insurance to all
children in the United
States for the equivalent
of 16 days of military
spending, 3 1/2 months in
Iraq, or 5 1/2 months of
the tax cuts to the richest
one percent of all
Americans. There are
more than nine million
children in the United
States who are currently
without health insurance.
The Children's Defense
Fund (CDF) and Susie
believe that our elected
officials are not doing
enough to solve the prob-
lem. As a result, CDF
announced the launch of
"Elect Susie" to build
awareness of the child
health crisis and of CDF's
proposal to provide all
children in America
"Elect Susie" is a fic-
tional presidential politi-
,cal campaign featuring
"Susie Flynn," a 10-year-
old girl who intends to
make everyone in
America aware of chil-
dren's health needs so
that they will no longer
be ignored or responded
to in a piece-meal fash-
ion. Susie is also deliver-
ing an ultimatum: Find a
solution now or she will
take matters into her own
hands by running for
As her campaign liter-
ature says, "Children can-
not take care of them-
selves, and they have no
power to influence
change. Here's why you
.should use your vote to,
get children the health
insurance they deserve:

to any other group of
people. The majority of
uninsured children live in
and almost 90 percent
live in families where at
least one parent works.
Increases in private
health insurance costs are
increases m in wages.
Ensuring that children
have timely, affordable
access to health care is a
smart economic move.
For instance, enrolling
uninsured children in
health coverage signifi-
cantly reduces hospital-
izations for preventable
illnesses. Uninsured chil-
dren are more than five
times as likely as insured
children to have gone
more than two years
without a doctor visit.
What the United States
spends on health care per
person is more than twice
the average spent in
yet we rank near the bot-
tom among those nations
in infant mortality rates.

"Tn1 everything there is a season
and a (ine 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

features a giant black and white cow, ballroom columns
adorned with balloons bearing the same pattern as the
giant cow, and giant cacti throughout. In another area
of the 'Corral' there was the 'Link Saloon' with casino

VA Mismanagement Takes
on Political Dimension
The official reaction to the revelations at Walter Reed has
been swift, and it has exposed the potential political costs of
ignoring our 24.3 America's veterans many of whom are
among the last standing supporters of the Iraq war.
In just two weeks, the Secretary of the Army has been
fired, a two-star general relieved of command and two spe-
cial commissions appointed; congressional subcommittees
are lining up for hearings, the first last week at Walter Reed;
and the president, in his weekly radio address, redoubled
promises to do right by the all-volunteer force, 1.5 million
of whom have fought in iraq and Afghanistan.
America had believed the government's
assurances that the wounded were
being taken care of.
Ron Glasser Author
What ima3 be most disturbing is the tact ihat the exposure
of this nationally embarrassing mismanagement at Walter
Reed came not from the U.S. Army who is responsible for
the facility, but from the illi/longtio Post newspaper
Several forces converged to create this 'perfect storm'
reaction. First is a new political majority in Congress that is
willing to criticize the administration. Senior retired officers
pounded the Pentagon with sharp questions about what was
going on. Up to 40 percent of the troops fighting in Iraq are
National Guard members and reservists "our neighbors,"
said Ron Glasser, a physician and author of a book about the
wounded. "It all adds up and reaches a kind of tipping
point," he said. On top of all that, America had believed the
government's assurances that the wounded were being taken
care of. "The country is embarrassed" to know otherwise,
And even with the current state of affairs at the VA, the
Bush administration's current budget assumes cuts to veter-
ans' health care two years from now even as badly
wounded troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan could
overwhelm the system.
To provide more timely assistance, the U.S. Senate
Committee on Veterans Affairs are recommending a $2.9
billion increase over the Bush's request for veterans' med-
ical care. This amount would also provide VA with resources
to absorb the thousands of service members presently on
medical hold at Walter Reed and in other military facilities
according to U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI).

ship of the Congressional Black Caucus will be presented
to officials of the National Newspaper Publishers
Association Foundation, sponsors of Black Press Week,
and the National Newspaper Publishers Association
(NNPA), the trade group for the more than 200 Black
newspapers. The resolution will cite the historic role of
the Black Press as the strong, influential voice of the
Black community beginning with the anti-slavery move-
ment and the founding of the first black newspaper,
Freedom's Journal on March 17, 1827.
Major highlights of Black Press Week include the
annual Newsmaker of the Year Awards Dinner on
Thursday, March 15, honoring New Orleans Mayor C.
Ray Nagin, representing the nation's continuing concern
over the gulf area devastated by Hurricane Katrina, the
Tuskegee Airmen, and Simeon Booker, who recently
retired after-serving for 50 years at the Washington
Bureau Chief for Ebony and Jet Magazines.

Cites Growing Strain with Board Members
President of NAACP;
Bruce Gordon Resigns
Citing growing strain with board members over the
group's management style and future operations, NAACP
President Bruce S. Gordon. is quitting the civil rights organ-
ization just 19 months after taking over as CEO.
"I believe that any organization that's going to be effec-
tive will only be effective if the board and the CEO are
aligned and I don't think we are aligned," Gordon said. "This
compromises the ability of the board to be as effective as it
Gordon said he will give up his duties before month's
end."I'm used to a CEO running an organization, with the
board approving strategy and policy," Gordon said. "But the
NAACP board is very much involved."
Gordon said he made the decision in recent weeks and
told the board at its annual meeting in New York City in
NAACP leaders were surprised by his decision and
engaged in hours of discussion, he said.
"They expressed disappointment," Gordon said. "We
attempted to see whether there was a way to continue but
that didn't happen."
Gordon sounded weary as he boarded a flight home to
New York City on Sunday.
"I don't view this as I'm right and they're wrong. I view
this as I see things one way and they see things a different
way," he said. "That misalignment between the CEO and the
board is unhealthy."
Asked about his.plans after leaving the NAACP, Gordon
said: "I'm going to catch my breath."
"What I've clearly learned in my tenure here is that all is
not well in black America, that's for sure," he said. "I believe
I have a lot to offer. I've got to find a way to be engaged that
optimizes what it is I bring to the table. My intention is not
to disengage, but to find a different way."
Gordon, 61, was a surprise pick, for the NAACP's top
post. When he took over on August 1, 2005, he had no track
record in traditional civil rights circles.
Before retiring in December 2003, Bruce was president -

"Mv big concern is not the backlog," Crist said. "My concern is justice"
McCollum at Odds with Crist's
Civil Rights Restoration Pledge
No one should be surprised that Gov. Charlie Crist is
considering an executive order to restore civil rights to
felons. He said during his campaign last year that he sup-
ported automatic restoration of rights for felons who com-
plete their sentences. Now he seems ready to make it hap-
For more than a century, Florida has denied felons the
right to vote after they've served their time, completed their
probation and made their restitution. Former felons can take
steps to have their civil rights restored by the state Cabinet,
but the process is costly and the backlog so big that it can
take years to get a hearing. At the present time there are esti-
mated to be over 15,000 convicted felons awaiting the
restoration of their civil rights.
The Florida Constitution provides that civil rights, such
as the right to vote, hold public office, obtain certain profes-
sional licenses and serve on a jury, be restored to convicted
felons who have met the conditions of their sentences. This
is accomplished by a grant of clemency from the Florida
Clemency Board. The clemency 'board is comprised of the
Governor and two members of the Florida cabinet.
Attorney General Bill McCollum argues that felons who
committed the most heinous crimes, such as murder or child
rape, should never have their civil rights restored. His point
is well taken, but those who commit the worst crimes are not
likely to be set free. And a debate over where to draw the
line would become a needless distraction.
In a widely circulated letter to the Governor dated
February 28, the Attorney General brought up what he con-
siders to be 'problems' associated with Crist's executive
order approach. MuCollum proposes that increased staffing
is the solution since a larger staff would be able to follow the
existing procedures in essence not providing automatic
restoration of civil rights but expediting the review process.
When the Florida Board of Executive Clemency met for
the first time since Gov. Charlie Crist took office, a majori-
General Bill McCollum and
.the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE)
announced last week that
five Tampa area residents
were arrested for possession
and distribution of child
pornography. The arrests are
the culmination of a week-
long operation in the Tampa
area by federal, state and
local law enforcement
authorities to investigate
and apprehend individuals
who possessed and distrib-
uted child pornography.
Those arrested were
Jeffory Feldhaus, 22, of
Largo, who will be charged
with one count of posses-
sion of videos depicting the
sexual performance of a
minor and one count of dis-
tribution of videos promot-
ing the sexual performance
by a minor; Jerry Barfield,
41, of Plant City, who will
be charged with 19 counts
of possession of videos
depicting the sexual per-
formance of a minor and
four counts of distribution
of videos promoting the
sexual performance by a
minor; Trent Cox, 42, of
Tampa, who will be charged
with four counts of posses-
sion of videos depicting the
sexual performance of a
minor and one count of dis-
tribution of videos promot-
ing the sexual performance
by a minor; Michael Boyd,
41, of Tampa, who will be
charged with 15 counts of
possession of videos depict-
ing the sexual performance
of a minor; and Ryan
Lawrence, 22, of Tampa,
who will be charged with
four counts of possession of
videos depicting the sexual
performance of a minor.
"Nothing is more impor-
tant than keeping our chil-
dren safe from individuals
who attempt to steal their
innocence by victimizing
them in such a heinous man-
ner," said Attorney General
McCollum. "We will never
back down and we will
never turn away from this
fight to protect our youngest
"Florida's law enforce-
ment is committed to work-
ing together to protect our
most innocent citizens, our
children, from being victim-
ized by online predators,"
said Special Agent Super-
visor Mike Phillips of

The arrests were part of a
joint effort by the Attorney
General's Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit and Office
of Statewide Prosecution,
FDLE's Computer Crime
Center, the Federal Bureau
of Investigation's Innocent
Images Task Force, the
United States Secret
Service, the Hillsborough,

Sheriff's Office and the
Tampa and Plant City Police
Departments. The agencies
involved are members of the
Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force, a fed-
erally-funded program that

tion of internet crimes
ty of members were on record supporting automatic restora-
tion of voting rights for most felons who have been released
Prior to the meeting Crist said he was still not sure he had
the votes to overhaul the Jim Crow-era rules, found in only
two other states, that disenfranchise felons who have served
He said a suggestion from Attorney General Bill
McCollum to expedite the review process to relieve the
backlog of felons seeking a hearing from the state clemency
board doesn't go far enough.
"My big concern is not the backlog," Crist said. "My
concern is justice. My concern is you've paid your debt to
society, you've done just that paid your debt.."
He can't make good on his campaign promise, however,
without the majority of the four-member clemency board,
which includes McCollum, Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink and Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson.
McCollum opposes the overhaul, while Sink and Bronson
have said they would support automatic civil rights for cer-
tain nonviolent offenders.
To understand the political consequences of the issue,
one needs look no farther than the estimated numbers as of
the close of the last decade in Florida there were 139,000
former felons and that 107,000 of them were black men.
Which constituted 9 percent of Florida's voting-age African
American population and 15 percent of Florida's voting-age
African American male population. Many of these convict-
ed felons are first-time offenders who pled guilty and were
sentenced to probation and never incarcerated.
Florida has the largest backlog in the nation of individu-
als who have filled out the necessary paperwork to have
their rights restored. Approximately 50,000 individuals in
Florida have been on the waiting list for restoration of rights
for two to three years.
Real Cost of
Gov. Charlie Crist's
Anti-Murder Act may be
pushed into law during the
first week of session, but
the political rush appears to
have left a few major ques-
tions at loose ends.
Under the law, violent
offenders jailed for violat-
ing probation would face
additional review before
they could post bail.
There don't appear to be
any legislators who oppose
that idea, but some wonder
counties will face an addi-
tional cost if the bill
While the felons are
awaiting a judge's review,
they have to be kept some-
where, and that most likely
would be county jails.
"How long will they, be
incarcerated before that
hearing?" asked Sen.
Arthenia Joyner, D-Tampa.
The bill's sponsor, Sen.
Paula Dockery, R-Lake-
land, at first painted an opti-
mistic picture with sugges-
tions it could happen within
days, then mentioned 30-
and 60-day possibilities,
depending on court work-
Dockery said the bill
could save lives.
"The answer is we don't
know how long" they'll be
held in jail, Joyner said.
And others questioned
who will pay for that.
"There will probably be
a substantial fiscal impact,"
said Sen. Al Lawson, D-
Tallahassee. "We have to be
very careful that we don't
send this unfunded mandate
down tq the counties."
4 Fatalities Mar Bike
Week in Volusia Area
3 of 4 Not Wearing Helmets
Three motorcyclists died in a span of 24 hours, and a
fourth succumbed to injuries he suffered in a weekend col-
lision, bringing the total number of Bike Week deaths to
four in Volusia County since the event began Friday.
A Midland, Michigan man was the first reported Bike
Week fatality in Volusia County. Raymond Rios, 48, died in
a Port Orange crash Monday night. Rios likely was speed-
ing when he lost control of his northbound motorcycle said
Capt. Wayne Miller, Port Orange police spokesman. No
other vehicles were involved when Rios hit the curb on the
east side of the road and was thrown from his 2000-Harley-
Davidson. Rios was not wearing a helmet and police do not
yet know whether alcohol was a factor, Miller said. Rios
was taken to Halifax Medical Center by ambulance and died
later Monday night.
A St. Augustine man died Tuesday from injuries he suf-
fered in a Saturday crash on U.S. 1 near the Iron Horse
Saloon just north of Ormond Beach. Jacinto Olivo, 46, was
weaving in and out of traffic on southbound U.S. 1 about
5:15 p.m. Saturday when he lost control of his motorcycle,
struck the pavement and slid underneath the back of a
stopped van, the FHP said. He was not wearing a helmet.
Two more bikers died Tuesday night when the motorcy-
clists slammed into each other in a head-on collision in
Deltona. Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Pete Bergstresser said
one biker was eastbound on Doyle Road and the other west-
bound when the eastbound biker tried to pass a sport utility
vehicle just east of Saxon Boulevard shortly before 8 p.m.
The motorcyclists died at the scene, he said. One of the
men was wearing a helmet; while the other was not. The
eastbound biker was identified as Brian Charles Greene, 31,
and westbound biker was Charles Forest Bigbee, 46. Both
were from Deltona.
With the four Volusia fatalities, the Bike Week-related
death toll in Florida climbed to six.
Bike Week 2006 was the deadliest on record for motor-
cycle riders. There were 16 bikers killed in Volusia and
Flagler counties during the event and five more died

Editor's Note. The following is reprinted from San Francisco 'sAsian Week and is included
only to provide context for the Letter To The Editor which follows..
WHY I HATE BLACKS by Kenneth Eng
Here is a list of reasons why we should discriminate against blacks, starting from the most
obvious down to the least obvious:
Blacks hate us. Every Asian who has ever come across them knows that they take almost
every opportunity to hurl racist remarks at us. In my experience, I would say about 90 percent
of blacks I have met, regardless of age or environment, poke fun at the very sight of an Asian.
Furthermore, their activity in the media proves their hatred: Rush Hour, Exit Wounds, Hot 97,
Contrary to media depictions, I would argue that blacks are weak-willed. They are the
only race that has been enslaved for 300 years. It's unbelievable that it took them that long to
fight back. On the other hand, we slaughtered the Russians in the Japanese-Russo War.
Blacks are easy to coerce. This is proven by the fact that so many of them, including
Reverend Al Sharpton, tend to be Christians. Yet, at the same time, they spend much of their
time whining about how much they hate "the whites that oppressed them." Correct me if I'm
wrong, but wasn't Christianity the religion that the whites forced upon them?
Blacks don't get it. I know it's a blunt and crass comment, but it's true. When I was in
high school, I recall a class debate in which one half of the class was chosen to defend black
slavery and the other half was chosen to defend liberation. Disturbingly, blacks on the prior
side viciously defended slavery as well as Christianity. They say if you don't study history,
you're condemned to repeat it.
In high school, I only remember one black student ever attending any of my honors and
AP courses. And that student was caught cheating.
Letter to the Editor
I too am a published author. I'm 32-years-old, and I have written for such publications
as, PC World Egypt, The Middle East Times, The Business Journal, and Business Monthly
Magazine. I also edited a small daily in my hometown. I've written two books, one is pub-
lished, the other is in the process and will be released later this year. So I say this with great
admiration, I applaud you on being the youngest author to publish a sci-fi novel.
However, the reason I write this letter, is to express my gratitude for your more recent
article titled, Why I hate blacks. I am not Asian-American, I am African-American. If you
are shocked, don't be. Many blacks, or I should say black-Americans, because that's really
who your opinion piece was aimed at, have had questions about Asians. This however, is due
to the fact that they feel that Asians, exploit, look down on, or misjudge them regardless of
who they are, based solely upon the superficiality of the skin they're in. We've always
assumed that Asians felt superior to us, now we know that our suspicions on that premise
are correct, thanks for bringing that issue to light to not only your Asian counterparts, but
also, to the world. I suspect that you or your fellow Asian-American business friends and
family won't be surprised if there is less black patronizing at their restaurants, gas stations,
beauty supply stores and nail salons in African-American communities nationwide as a
result of this disclosure. This piece provided a telling picture of what types of discussions
go on in the majority of Asian households around the world, when it comes to blacks. Also,
before I go any further, I would like to address the comment about blacks being enslaved the
longest out of any other race in history. The Hebrews, or Jews, as we now call them, were
enslaved by Egyptians for more than 400 years. So they beat us by about a century. If you
don't know the story, it took one man, Moses, to set them all free. Would you call him them
heroes? Just wondering.
I must tell you though, that it would seem that your thoughts about some of us might
appear to have some validity. This article was indeed a wake up call. For too long we
(blacks) have been a consumer population. We buy too much. Furthermore, we don't sup-
port our own; if we did, Asians would have little space in our marketplace. After slavery,
we didn't listen to Booker T. Washington, who told us that Asians would come in and take
our place, making not only a home for themselves here, but also becoming a thriving pop-
ulous within mainstream society. I must admit, to a point, that has come true. Studies show
that the fastest growing workforce in America is Asian. You all have even surpassed
Hispanics. There's no hater-aid here, I applaud you on this. However, I pray that your arti-
cle has spawned many blacks to finally do something about our economic system, or lack

You are right, many blacks have not explored other religions, or even doctrines or sects
within the Christian faith outside of protestantism. Blacks depended on the Christian God as
their source of strength, and though I'm certain that you do not understand it, He didn't let
them down. The Jesus that whites taught our ancestors was not the same Jesus that they
believed in. You see, Kenneth, though it was against the law for blacks to read, many learned
how. They learned about the Jesus that said, "there is no slave not free in me. All are one
in me." They learned about the Jesus that said there is no Jew or Greek, no male or female,
all are one in me, and 1 love all that my father has created. They learned about a slavery
more harsh than their own. You know, the one that I mentioned earlier. The one that lasted
400 years. They knew that if God sent the Hebrews a Moses, surely he would do the same
for them. Jesus became their champion. He was a beacon of light in their darkest hour. Now,
maybe you have a better understanding of why many blacks including myself, choose
Christianity. It is for the same reason why many Chinese still believe in, and respect their
ancestors. Our ancestors believed in a God that set them free, which is why many of us still
Your prejudice is deeper than you think. Asians, as a whole, especially those of Chinese
and Japanese descent, have a superiority complex about every race even over some
Asians, like Cambodians, Filipinos and Koreans. I know this to be a fact because I've got
the inside scoop. You see, Kenneth, I have had friends of many kinds throughout my 32
years. Don't misunderstand me, It's great to work hard and have a sense of pride about who
you are and where you come from. I feel the same, and teach my children the same.
However, it's not so great to look down on someone else because they may not have what
you consider, a strong background or work ethic. As my mother once told me, "It takes all
kinds." Besides that, true growth is knowing that not only are you alright, but knowing that
others are just as alright as you are. Those who lift others up, regardless of race, are con-
sidered virtuous in every religion. If you see a problem, be apart of the solution, don't just
chide the problem. As a writer, you could become a great force in providing a deeper under-
standing and become a liaison between Asians and blacks.
My husband is African-American, and he's studied the beautiful art of Kung (Gung) Fu
for over 20 years. He is a devout Christian, who greatly respects the Chinese, and Buddhism.
If he felt for one moment that a Chinese person looked down on him just because of the
skin he has no control over wearing, he'd feel pretty horrible.
In my conclusion, I would just like to implore you to take a lesson from Dr. Martin
Luther King. Judge people not as a collective race, color or creed. Size everyone up individ-
ually. Don't hate groups, hate ignorance, and injustice no matter what body it's emanating

'Who WI.as St. Patrick?
St. Patrick, the
patron saint of Ireland,
is orin of Christianity's
most widely known fig-
ures. But for all his
celebrity, his life
remains somewhat of a
mystery. Many of the
associated with St.
Patrick, including the
famous account of his
banishing all the snakes
from Ireland, are false,
the products of hundreds
of years of exaggerated
Taken Prisoner By Irish
It is known that St.
Patrick was born in
Britain to wealthy par-
ents near the end of the
fourth century. He is
believed to have died on
March 17, around 460
A.D. Although his father
was a Christian deacon,
it has been suggested
that he probably took on
the role because of tax
incentives and there is
no evidence that Patrick
came from a particularly
religious family. At the
age of sixteen, Patrick
was taken prisoner by a
group of Irish raiders
who were attacking his
family's estate. They
transported him .to
Ireland where he spent
six years in captivity.
(There is some dispute
over where this captivity
took place. Although
many believe he was
taken to live in Mount
Slemish in County
Antrim, it is more likely
that he was held in
County Mayo near
Killala.) During this
time, he worked as a
shepherd, outdoors and
away from people.
Lonely and afraid, he
turned to his religion for
solace, becoming a
devout Christian. (It is
also believed that
Patrick first began to
dream of conve-ting the
Irish people to
Christianity during his
Guided By Visions
After more than six
years as a prisoner,
According to his writ-
ing, a voice-which he
believed to be God's-
spoke to him in a dream,
telling him it was time to
To do so, Patrick
walked nearly 200 miles
from County Mayo,
where it is believed he
was held; to the Irish
coast. After escaping to
Britain, Patrick reported
that he experienced a
angel in a dream tells
him to return to Ireland
as a missionary. Soon
after, Patrick began reli-
gious training, a course
of study that lasted more
than fifteen years. After
his ordination as a
priest, he \\as sent to
Ireland with a dual mis-
sion-to minister to
Christians already living
in Ireland and to begin
to convert the Irish.
(Interestingly, this mis-
sion contradicts the
widely\ held notion that
Christianity to Ireland.)
Bonfires and Crosses
Familiar with the
Irish language and cul-
ture, Patrick chose to
ritual into his lessons of.
Christianity instead of
attempting to eradicate
native Irish beliefs. For
instance, he used bon-
fires to celebrate Easter
since the Irish were used
to honoring their gods
with fire. He also super-
imposed a sun, a power-
ful Irish symbol, onto
the Christian cross to
create what is now
called a Celtic cross, so
that veneration of the
symbol would seem
more natural to the Irish.
(Although there were a
small number of
Christians on the island
when Patrick arrived,
most Irish practiced a
nature-based pagan reli-
gion. The Irish culture
centered around a rich
tradition of oral legend
and myth. When this is
considered, it is no sur-
prise that the story of
Patrick's life became
exaggerated over the
exciting tales to remem-
ber history has always
been a part of the Irish
way of life.)
Wearing of the Green
Today, St. Patrick's
Day is celebrated by
people of all back-
grounds in the United
States, Canada, and

tions, St. Patrick's Day

been a religious occa-

1970s, Irish laws man-
dated, that pubs be
closed on March 17.
Beginning in 1995,
however, the Irish gov-
ernment began a nation-
al campaign to use St.
Patrick's Day as an
opportunity to drive
tourism and showcase
Ireland to the rest of the
world. Last year, close
to one million people

Turn to the word "grace" in the diction-
ary and you will find an unusually
lengthy string of complimentary descrip-
tions that includes: virtue from God, flu-
idity of movement, striking beauty or a
most pleasing musical adornment.
Above all of these, for jazz violinist
supreme Regina Carter, Grace is the
name of the woman who left indelible
imprints upon her heart, mind and spir-
it, inspiring her to walk with pride, and,
specifically, to ornament the world with
the soul-stirring sound of music. The
woman bearing that poetically apropos

It is not an overstatement to say that modern jazz
has been shaped by the music of McCoy Tyner.
His blues-based piano style, replete with sophisti-
cated chords and an explosively percussive left
hand has transcended conventional styles to
become one of the most identifiable sounds in
While Tisdale considers his music to be jazz, or
perhaps more to the point, funk-jazz, his early
influences include, among others, Earth, Wind &
Fire. In fact, it was one of that group's most suc-
cessful ballads, "Can't Hide Love," that Tisdale
covered early in his recording career, keeping
faithful to the melody of the original, but deliver-
ing it in a way that's all Tisdale.

I found out that my husband was having an affair but I didn't say
anything. However his mistress isn't too bright. She approached me
at the grocery store and thought she was doing me a favor by telling
me all about it. I was fine and laughing at her until she called me
stupid. I took it upon myself at that point to slap her a few times and
she pressed charges. My husband will be with me in court but I'm i
not sure what to do with him after the legal battle.
Strong Wife St. Louis, MO
Dear Strong Wife:
After slapping the mistress, your next step should be your husband. Yes, he was'wrong for his
actions and even more so for selecting someone: ignorant to have an affair with. After the legal
battle you need to do an assessment of your marriage, find out why your husband had an affair
and determine together what you'll do next. However, make it known you will not tolerate
cheating and divorce is an option if he decides to do something this dumb again.
My girlfriend is getting on my nerves because I feel she has mistaken strength for rudeness.
She talks down to me and embarrasses me in front of my friends. She is trying to prove to her
friends that she's in control of this relationship. I let her get away with a few things because
no harm has been done. I need to put a stop to this because she's begun to publicly attack my
sexual performance. How do I address this without ruining the relationship?
Anonymous On-Line Reader
You need a loud mouth woman like you need a hole in the head. Your girlfriend is being dis-
respectful to you and the relationship. You should be direct and tell her to keep her mouth shut
and stop putting you on blast in front of people. If she feels the need to control something, buy
her a dog and she can pull its leash and make it jump at her command. If the verbal rudeness
continues, give her a warning with the understanding that the next time, you'll be gone.

I'm in college and me and my peers have the sane issues. We're short on money, have to do
odd jobs to buy gas and we pool our money to buy food. Things are working out with the
exception of one friend that isn't pulling her load. She rides in the car with us and eats the
food but' we noticed that she isn't contributing to the fund. We all have seen her with new
clothes and manicures. How do we tell her that she needs to pay her money or she's out of

You guys are on the right track as you've realized early on that there is strength in numbers.
You need to carefully document all the agreed upon activity within the group and demonstrate
her lack of participation. Have a face-to-face discussion once you've verified a few things and
can determine if her shortcomings are legit or bogus. If she's been getting over, then your
friend is a freeloader and you need to let her know that she needs to pay her way or get out of

SHOL LD IO( ITEMIZE.'
\\ whether to itemize deductions on ,lour tax return
depends on ho\ Illuch ouil spent on certain expenses
last year. Money paid for medical care, mortgage inter-
est, taxes, charitable contributions, casualty losses, and
miscellaneous deductions can reduce your taxes. If the total amount spent on those
categories is more than the standard deduction, you can usually benefit by itemiz-
The standard deduction amounts are based on your filing status and are subject
to inflation adjustments each year. For 2006, they are:
Married Filing Jointly $10,300
Head of Household $7,550
Married Filing Separately $5,150
Some taxpayers have different standard deductions. The standard deduction is
more for taxpayers age 65 or older and for those who are blind. It is generally less
for those who can be claimed as a dependent on some other taxpayer's return.
Limited itemized deductions. Your itemized deductions may be limited if your
adjusted gross income is more than $150,500 or $75,250 for Married Filing
Separately. This limit applies to all itemized deductions except medical and dental
expenses, casualty and theft losses, gambling losses, and investment interest.
Stipulations for Married Filing Separately. When a married couple files separate
returns and one spouse itemizes deductions, the other spouse must also itemize and
cannot claim the standard deduction.
Some taxpayers are not eligible for the standard deduction. They include nonres-
ident aliens, dual-status aliens, and individuals who file returns for periods of less
than 12 months.
Forms to use. To itemize your deductions, use Form 1040, U.S. Individual
Income Tax Return, and Schedule A, Itemized Deductions.

Florida Players at LSU Make
an Impact in SEC Tourney
By Cheryl Coward Star Staff Wtiter
Several women's basketball players from
Florida showcased their skills at last week-
end's Southeastern Conference champi-
onships in Duluth, Ga. Erica White, a junior
guard from Jacksonville, and Sylvia Fowles,
a junior center from Miami, both made the
all-conference team and led their Lady
Tigers of Louisiana State University to the
finals with a huge upset over powerhouse
Fowles and White each scored in double
digits. Fowles led with 19 points and 20
rebounds, her 19th straight double-double.
She was one rebound shy of tying the SEC
Tournament record for most rebounds in a
game. Point guard White had 17 points and
put in a fearless 'and stifling defensive game
with only one turnover.
Pokey Chatman, the LSU coach, is
quickly elevating her name to legendary sta-
tus with her record of wins (88-13). She was

basketball in Miami at Edison at

announced her resignation from LSU
Wednesday. "I have notified the university
today that I will step down as head coach of
the women's basketball program in order to
allow me to pursue other career opportuni-
ties," Chatman said in a prepared statement.
It is rumored that she will coach in the

data shows that, as expect-

a four-year college degree
have incomes that are sub-

experience but have not
earned a degree.

with a swan song that ended up being the
first upset of the tournament. They came
NA--IL -- I
Erica White LSU Guard played High School bas-
ketball in Jacksonville at Ribault
into the tournament with the worst record in
the team's history (9-21, 2-12 SEC). Coach
Carolyn Peck and her team managed to
squeeze out a win (69-63) over the
Mississippi State team who were ranked
sixth in the tournament compared to the
Gators number 11 slot.
Peck, who decided to stay for the rest of
the season after she was fired on February
12, was elated after the victory. "I would say
that right now I've got to be the happiest
coach in America," said Peck.
She commented on the effort of her play-
ers and their drive to win during that first
game. "None of us want this to be over and
they showed that tonight."
Peck may not be with the Gators next
season but according to Peck maybe their
win at the tournament will give them hope
for next year to hopefully get to the NCAA
"I think there's a core group," said Peck,
"that can help springboard that to happen."
The Gators lost the next night to nation-
ally-ranked Vanderbilt 105-77, the team that
upset LSU to win the tournament. Florida's
77 points was the most scored by a losing
team in the tournament.
Most important, in view
of the huge penalty race dis-
crimination has imposed on
African Americans in the
United States, is the fact that
blacks who complete a four-
year college education have
a median income that is now
near parity with similarly
But the good news is
severely tempered by the
unacceptably low college
completion rate of black
students. According to the
most recent statistics, the
nationwide college gradua-
tion rate for black students
stands at an appallingly low
rate of 43 percent. This fig-
ure is 20 percentage points
below the 63 percentage
rate for white students.
On this front, the only
positive news is that over
the past three years the
black student graduation
rate has improved by four
When the Rev. Al Sharpton was told that
members of his family were once held in
bondage by relatives of the
late Sen. Strom Thurmond, it
was news he received with
shock and then mixed emo-
tions. It was a disclosure he
felt was important for
Americans to know.
"In the story of the
Thurmonds and the
Sharptons is the story of
shame and glory of
America," he said Sunday
during a press conference at
the midtown offices of the Rev Al
Daily News, which played a
role in breaking the story. "The shame is that
my family was the property of the
Thurmonds. The glory is that Strom
Thurmond ran for president in 1948 on the
segregation ticket, and I ran for the president
in 2004 on a ticket for racial justice."

The National Great Blacks In Wax Museum recently
opened its African American inventions exhibit. It will
play host to the exhibit for one year. Shirley Jones-Harris,
founder and president of The Center for Inventions and
Achievements of Persons of African Ancestry, Inc. loaned
the museum the collection. The collection includes more
than "100-reasonable or close facsimiles of their creations,
along with brief descriptions, copies and patent numbers."
It centers on inventors of the nineteenth century. There are
some twentieth century inventors in the exhibit.
"America's earliest black inventors are mired in an
anonymity that has served to conceal their contributions to
America and the world. This exhibit helps us in our efforts
to continually send a message to our youth that there are
no limits to what we can achieve, because there are no
limits to what we have achieved," said Dr. Joanne Martin,

"The reverend's reaction to his own his-
tory is a powerful example of what families
are discovering everyday now that priceless
historical records are increasingly and easily
accessible online," Ms. Smolenyak said in a
press release. "We're grateful that the rev-
erend agreed to take this journey and that the
discoveries absolutely exceeded all our
expectations. When I spotted a Thurmond in
the family tree, I suspected there might be a
relationship, but I could never have imag-
ined just how closely, their
families were connected."
Among some of things
Sharpton hoped would come
out of all of this was that peo-
ple will gather a better under-
standing of the suffering
Blacks had endured during
slavery and that "I can take a
name given to me because
my great-grandfather was
property and make that name
stand for freedom fighter," he
The story was instigated
by the Daily News and veteran reporter
Austin Fenner, who had collaborated with
Ancestry.com to research Sharpton's family
tree. "When the Daily News first reached
out to me for this story," Sharpton said, "I
was very excited at the prospect of discover-

Nowadays, the search for Black roots

African-American Historical Records

Black inventors on display-include Isaac Johnson,
inventor of the bicycle frame in 1899; Sarah Boone, who

happened by accident. It all started in her White Plains

For teams like Virginia
Union, Bowie State and

Athletic Assn. (CIAA)
fields an energetic confer-
ence of athletic guard play
and plenty of strong interior
action. The conference con-
sists of 11 historically

wins this showdown gener-

sorts of trouble in the
Division II tournament.
This year Elizabeth City
State knocked the giant off
the CIAA mountaintop
Saturday, beating top-seed-
ed Virginia Union 63-60 in
the league tournament's
championship game in
Charlotte's Bobcats Arena.

rebounds and tournament
MVP Anthony Hilliard's 21
points and 14 rebounds.
Jabyron Wilson also had 12
rebounds for the Vikings.
The Panthers got 19 points

"I brought three suits
and one suit for the ban-
quet," said Vikings coach
Shawn Walker. "1 had to
recycle one on tonight."
Elizabeth City State held
off the Panthers (21-5),
despite shooting 34.3 per-
cent from the field. The key
was the work the Vikings
did rebounding, where they
had a 53-33 edge. "We
crushed them on the glass,"
The victory brought the
Vikings their first CIAA
championship since 1981.
The Vikings and
Virginia Union will both

Two former Dallas Cowboys football
teammates now have much more to share
than football memories of games won and
lost. They are the first U.S. pro sports team-
mates to share an organ. Everson Walls
donated a kidney to Rbn Spring last week.
Spring has suffered from type
2 diabetes for 16 years and
had been on the transplant
waiting list since 2004.
The debilitating disease
had led to the amputation of
his right foot and the big and
middle toes on his left foot,
and caused his hands to curl
into knots. He also was forced
into a wheelchair and needed
dialysis three times a week.
Springs and Walls were
both recovering from the sur-
gery at Medical City Hospital
in Dallas last Thursday
"That's brotherly love,"
Springs told The Associated Press in
December. "It's something you can't explain,
but something that I will always think about
every day for the rest of my life."
Providing his body does not reject Walls'
kidney, Springs will no longer need dialysis
and can expect his hands to regain their nor-
mal form. His doctors also expect that he
would also be able to walk on his own.
"It's like getting a new battery in a car,"
Springs said in December. "I'll be able to be
back to basically almost 100 percent nor-
Walls, 47, volunteered to be tested after
things fell through with two of Springs' rel-
atives who were perfect matches.
"I said, Well, look, I know my blood type
is the same as his. Why not give it a shot and
see what happens?" Walls said in
Springs and Walls became fast friends
during Walls' first training camp with the
Cowboys. They played together only four
years (1981-84), but their close relationship
continued, enhanced by their wives and chil-
dren being close with each other, too.
The duo had wanted to keep the trans-
plant quiet until it happened, but word
leaked in December through Springs' oldest

man. I know Ron Springs is going to live a
lot longer with a kidney than he would have
Walls and Springs sat solemnly as
Jeremy Bradshaw, Medical City's head of
transplant services, reported that almost
70,000 Americans are on the kidney trans-
plant waiting list.
"This is the greatest moment of my life,"
Springs said. "I have three kids and I mar-
ried a wonderful wife. This is right up there
Ron Springs joined the Cowboys in 1979
and became a starter alongside Tony Dorsett
in '81, the year Walls arrived as an undraft-
ed rookie from Grambling. Springs left in
1985, finishing his career with two seasons
in Tampa Bay.
The only other known organ transplants
involving former pro athletes as donors
include Greg Ostertag giving a kidney to his
sister in 2002 when he was playing for the
Utah Jazz, and basketball Hall of Famer
Oscar Robertson donating a kidney to his
daughter in 1997. Several pro athletes have
received an organ, with basketball players

to play in the NBA following their ordeals.

AN EYE FOR NARCOTICS TRANSACTIONS AND THE SELF-
EMPLOYED Sgt. K.C. and Officer M.G. were on routine patrol in the 7100 block
of Wilson Blvd. Sgt. C. observed a black pick up truck and a red unknown model
car in a parking lot. Sgt. C. observed what he believed to be a narcotics transaction
taking place. It should be noted that Sgt. C. has a wealth of experience in narcotics
investigations. When the suspect noticed the presence of the officer, he quickly
attempted to enter the passenger side of the parked pickut
S .truck. The red vehicle left the area at a high rate of speed.
S 'Sgt. C. and Officer G. approached the truck and made
contact with suspect R.C. and two witnesses. Sgt. C.
observed what appeared to be a piece of crack cocaine
lying on the ground next to the passenger side of the pick

made contact with suspect R.C. to buy crack cocaine. 40

SHE WAS TALKING WHILE SERVING Officer H.L. was dispatched to the
600 block of East Adams St., in reference to a male fighting with a manager inside
a center. Upon arrival, he met the victim, Mr. N. who stated that he was notified of
a problem in the breakfast feeding line involving suspect J.O.S. When M. N. went
to the breakfast line he learned that suspect J.O.S. had
yelled at the witness, Ms. W., and threatened her. Mr. N.
told the suspect that if he did not want to eat breakfast he
could leave the center. The suspect became very loud and
started pushing the employees. Some of the other people
at the center had to help restrain the suspect to stop any
further violence. During the incident, the suspect used a
plastic hair pick as a weapon and scratched the victim,
Mr. N. on his neck. The suspect was detained on the park-
ing lot of the center as he was trying to walk off. He told
the officer, after his rights was read, that he was upset
because the witness was talking while serving breakfast and germs were falling into
the food tray.

Arrest-Proof Yourself: An Ex-Cop Reveals How Easy It Is To Get Arrested, How Even
A Single Arrest Could Ruin Your Life, and What To Do If The Police Get In Your Face.
Former Miami police officer and FBI field agent Dale C. Carson and Wes Denham exposes
the troubling realities of the criminal justice system that relies heavily on arrests and con-
victions for minor offenses. Police officers largely pursue trivial criminals that make easy
and quick targets, while dangerous felons escape justice.
Carson and Denham argue that although their primary focus should be to serve and pro-
tect, police officers often use arrests as a way to fulfill police quotas and establish superior-
ity in the ranks. With one arrest, getting a decent job or bank loan becomes almost impossi-
ble for the ordinary citizen.
With Arrest-Proof Yourself, citizens learn how to calmly avoid arrest both on the street
and when pulled over in their vehicles. Carson and Denham expose how people accidental-
ly incriminate themselves and offer tips to remedy the situation. Civilians will also learn
how to. protect their right to be left alone by intimidating police officers who smoke out
minor offenders through dirty tricks, racial discrimination or sexual harassment.
Former law enforcement agent and current criminal defense lawyer Carson notes,
"Every day 1 see citizens who help police arrest them, help the state prosecute them and
don't even realize it."
From asking for a notice to appear (NOA) to vomiting on oneself to discourage an
arrest, Carson's and Denham's street survival tactics range from sensible to scandalous.
They preach three blunt rules: 1) If cops can't see you, they can't arrest you; 2) Keep your
dope at home; and 3) Tell cops your name and basic info, then shut the heck up!
Sprinkled with absurdity and humor, this eye-opening "how-not-to: book will steer even
the most clueless civilian away from an arrestablee" action while in the presence of police.
Dale C. Carson served as a Miami police officer from 1974-1976, during which he set
records for felony arrests. He then served as a railroad special agent for two years and
worked as a detective for the State's Attorney's office for a year. In In 1978, Carson began
a ten year career as a FBI agent. From 1989 to 1997 he taught at the FBI academy and was
a private detective. He graduated from law school in 2000 and is currently a criminal
defense attorney. He lives in Jacksonville, FL. and is presently running for Sheriff. Wes
Denham has written newspaper columns and edited trade journals. He lives in Jacksonville

By Rych McCain/ feedback-
The Grammy Awards
came off in grand style. The
talk of the pressroom focused
on the country superstar
group The Dixie Chicks,
who took home five
Grammy's including "Album
of the Year." The majority
consent was that the NARAS
Academy voters sent out a
clear message that freedom
of speech is not to be denied
or stepped on just to appease
a few right wingers who hyp-
ocritically prefer "political
correctness," when anyone
addresses the issues of the
day. One of my personal
favorites; Houston platinum
rapper Chamillionaire; won
his first Grammy for Best
Rap Performance By A Duo
Or Group for his single
"Ridin" featuring Krayzie
Bone. Another of my per-
sonal favorites was Atlanta's
main man; rapper TI., who
won Best Rap Solo
Performance for his hit sin-
gle "What You Know. Mary
J. Blige, Beyonce, "
Ludacris, John Legend,
George Benson, Al Jarreau,
Jill Scott and Gnarls
Barkley all left the Staples
Family of Spiritually
Center in Downtown LA.,
Look for Universal
Mo to w n/Moodswing
Productions artist J.R.
"Get Money," to release
his debut album soon. Also
out of Houston, we can
expect a new Album from
Papa Reu titled "Rude
Boy." Having introduced
superstars like India Arie,
Kendred and Julie Dexter,
Chocolate Soul announces
the release of Volume II of
its highly acclaimed com-
pilation series to be
released April 21. The
third installment features
Abstract Mindstate featur-
ing Kanye West, Kindred
the Family Soul, Jurassic
5, Crossrhodes featuring
Sy Smith & Raheem
Devaughn and more.
Happy Birthday wishes
go out to Aree Davis
(Keisha Ridenh-ur on
Chris"), who celebrated
her sweet sixteen February
19. Davis is considered as
one of Hollywood's most
gorgeous teen actresses
and she is a proud member
