He died last week after
years of kidney trouble in
St. Louis, MO. Luther was
69-years-old and is sur-

no love could be wrong.

Venessa Williams
Gets Hollywood

Vanessa Williams
Vanessa Williams was the
first black Miss America.
After bad publicity, she
gave up her crown but not
her ambition. She has
starred on television, in
movies and made several
albums. Now she has been
awarded a star on the
Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Timothy Wayne Shepherd, 27
Murder Suspect
an engineering major at
Texas A&M, trying to reach
her goal of success.
Timothy at the time, was
unemployed. She was 19
and he is 27.
Tynesha had returned to
Houston for spring break
and did not want to see
Timothy but somehow, they'
got together and on March
15, 2007 she disappeared

and on March 19, she was
reported missing. The
Houston Sheriff's
Department spent hours
looking for her and after
Timothy had spent hours
talking with them, he met
with a Houston leader in the
Muslim community and told
him that he had killed her
and had thrown her in a
dumpster in the area where
he lived. What he did not
tell Houston activist Quanell
X is that her body had been
dismembered and burned in
two barbeque grills on his
apartment patio.
Neighbors said they saw the
heavy smoke and observed
that Shepherd had been
using the grill, non-stop for
at least two days. There was
a loud oder but no one
would have ever dreamed of
what was happening. In
fact, the neighbor who
owned the second grill was
told by Shepherd that he was
cooking for a wedding.
The' community is so out-
"raged that Shepherd's fami-

White Dolls

Black girls still prefer
white dolls, according to a
study done by a 17-year-old
high school student, Kiri
Davis. Davis reported that
she sat with 21 black kids
in New York and found that
16 of them liked the white
doll better.
This is similar to the test
done by Dr. Kenneth Clark
in 1954, with similar
results. "When will this

Women's History -
Still Being Written

Martha Burk

Advocates of women's
rights have a lot to celebrate
this Women's History
Month. Here and abroad,
women are making strides
on terrain both old and new.
This March, leaders of
the nation's women's organ-
izations concurred that the
month dedicated to history
made by women needs a
name that reflects not just
the landmarks of the past,
but the ongoing achieve-
ments of women as we
advance toward equality.
This year, we celebrate the
third month of the year not
as simply "Women's History
Month," but "Women
Making History Month."
In the history books of
tomorrow, 2007 will doubt-
less be designated a land-
mark year, beginning with
Nancy Pelosi's election in
January as first Speaker of
the U.S. House of
Representatives. Harvard
University named Drew
Gilpin Faust its first woman
president in the school's
371-year history, and
Frances E. Allen became the
first woman to receive the
highest award in computing
in February. This country's
very first public space dedi-
cated to feminist art
becomes a reality on March
23, 2007 when 'the
Elizabeth A. Sackler Center

for Feminist Art opens in the
Brooklyn Museum The
Center provides a perma-
nent space for Judy
Chicago's legendary work
"The Dinner Party," honor-
ing women throughout his-
Across the pond, the
Wimbledon Championships
-- the oldest Grand Slam
event in tennis -- will finally
join the United States Open
and the Australian Open in
granting equal prize money
to female and male competi-
tors. In France women are
looking forward o the like-
ly election next month of
S6golene Royal as the
nation's first female presi-
dent next. If elected, she
will join Michelle Bachelet
of Chile her nation's first
female chief executive,
elected last year.
Amid the progress, there
are also setbacks. With the
re-emergence of the Taliban,
women in Afghanistan are
back in the burqa, the head-
to-ankle garment, and gen-
erally purged from public
view. And women in Darfur
with fewer resources than
men and primary responsi-
bility for children, continue
to bear the brunt of the
ongoing genocide and rapes.
Here at home, the pay
gap between women and
men working full time

(year-round) in this country
remains a stubborn 24 cents
on the dollar, and women
are still the largest group of
elderly poor. There's not
much good news on the
executive front either. A
recent report from Catalyst,
an independent research
organization, says it will
take another 47 years for
women to reach parity with
men as corporate officers in
the Fortune 500. That's
more than a full career span
in anybody's book.
National women's
groups in the U.S. aren't
waiting for history to catch
up with fairness. They're
planning a national
Women's Equality Summit
March 26-27 in Washington
D.C. to honor legislators
who have done the most for
women, and educate
activists from around the
country about areas where
women are still left behind.
Those activists will, in turn,
lobby their members of
Congress for faster results
enacting measures that ben-
efit women and their fami-
lies. Summit participants
will also hear from presi-
dential candidates. It will
be interesting to hear how
many of them will address
the pay gap, cuts in child
health funds, the woeful
lack of child care in this
country, and why the U.S.
hasn't ratified the interna-
tional women's human
rights treaty And, oh yes --
the 900 pound gorilla --

ending the war. Polls show
that women in both parties
are far more anti-war than
men, and we've known for
years that nobody can be
elected president without
women's votes, even if they
garner 100 percent of male
Speaking of gorillas, my
favorite recent females-
making- history story comes
from the animal kingdom.
Seems researchers in
Senegal have established
that chimps can and do fash-
ion spears from sticks and
use the tools to hunt small
mammals. They say the
landmark observation sup-
ports the notion that
females, who do most of the
crafting, are the main inno-
vators and creative problem
solvers in primate culture.
Could be true in the human
realm as well, but we won't
know till women are equal
to men politically, economi-
cally and socially. So let's
cheer these small steps for
womankind, and hope that
future steps will be giant

en. A time to be born, and a time
to die. "--Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.
No one wants to talk about
death and funerals. Too depress-

of life and there simply is no way
to avoid it. For indeed there is a

You may want a traditional
funeral service with visitation
and a member of the clergy con-
ducting 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 favorite hymns?
First, you should shop
around and talk to a few funeral
directors. Yes, let your fingers do
the walking-comparing prices
for such things as casket,
.Ilnl'ilningi. ant the cost for pro-
fessional services.
Resist one-stop shopping,
which can include such 'hiim; as

and guest registers-the:. add up
quickly. Malni opt for the funer-
.a home m their neighborhood
for personalized services.
Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth bur-
ial, a cemetery plot should be
purchased; if above ground, a
mausoleum crypt. If cremation is
the choice, plan disposition of
the ashes. Do you want them
stored in a columbarium niche or
buried? Maybe you prefer to
have your ashes ,..ainietd'
An option some people take
is to donate organs and tissues to
a medical school (have a donor
card and check on requirements).
If you would rather have a
memorial service express that
wish. That means a service in the
funeral home or a church where
the body is not present. A com-
mon inisco:nception is that when
the body is cremated you don't
hold a funeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

2007 Amelia Island Concours d' Elegance
"For the past twelve years, an automotive 'Field of
Dreams' has been arrayed on the greens at The Golf
Club of Amelia Island at Summer Beach, making a
name for itself as a more laid back, relaxed concourse
than Pebble Beach and some of the other biggies," states
the publicity information.
The racing cars and customized vehicles were all
there. The cars were simply GRAND! Instead of a sin-
gle marquee being honored, recognition was given to all
veterans of the great Mille Miglia, Targa Florio, Isle of
Man Tourist Trophy, and Carrera Panamericana open-
road races, and on the cars piloted by racing legend
Derek Bell. With General Motors as a very generous
sponsor and so ably represented by Edward Welburn,
General Motors vice president of global design, made
possible a great collection of road-racing greats along
with Corvairs. With modified cars for movie legends the
2007 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance was an

Anglicans Celebrate The

Abolition of Slave Trade

The leader of the world's Anglicans led more than one
thousand people through London to mark the 200th anniver-
sary ofthe last week.
Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and his
deputy in the Church of England, Archbishop of York John
Sentamu, blessed the crowd with a short prayer before the
procession set off from the Whitehall government district.
At the head of the marchers was a banner reading:
"March of Witness, Remembrance, Repentance,
Restoration" while some bore wooden crosses,, according to
an AFP reporter at the scene.

and foreign guests, including
many from Africa, passed the .

its involvement.
Nearly three million black people are thought to have

Annual Breast MRIs Urged

For Women at Cancer Risk

The American Cancer
Society is issuing new
guidelines today that urge
annual MRI exams every
year to try to catch more
tumors at their earliest,
most treatable stages for-
women at high risk because
of a strong family history of
the disease, a genetic pre-
disposition or other rea-
sons. As many as 1.6 mil-
lion women in the United
States fall into this high-
risk category.
The more sensitive MRI
exams can pick up small
tumors that mammograms
frequently miss. "The goal
here is to do a better job of
finding breast cancer early,
when they are much more
likely to be treated success-
fully," said Robert A.
Smith, the society's director
of screening.
The guidelines stress
that the exams are not a
replacement for the tradi-
tional mammograms and
regular physical exams.
While many patient
advocates and breast cancer
experts welcomed the
guidelines, others ques-
tioned whether there is
enough evidence to justify
the recommendation.
Echoing the debate over
mammography, they noted
that detecting cancer early
does not necessarily trans-
late into saving lives and
can subject women to
unnecessary tissue biopsies

AIDS on Increase Among Women

The National Minority AIDS Council
(NMAC) has honored the second annual

the disproportionate impact of HIV/AIDS

including testing positive

Routine mammography
has helped cut the death
rate, but mammograms,
which are X-rays of the
breast, can miss small
tumors. MRI uses magnetic

Sex and violence are
what many parents fear
their children will consume
too much of on television.
But a new study finds that
food is the top product

on screen.
It finds that "food is the

media such as music, video
games and movies," said
Vicky Rideout, VP of the

directed the study, which
was conducted by Indiana

The study found that
more than a third of com-

or adolescents are for candy
and snacks often high-
fat, sugary foods that are
likely to fuel the on-going
childhood obesity epidemic.
"The study is really
important," says Margo

The study of 969 women in

"MRI without question
can identify cancer that is
invisible to the mammo-
gram," said Constance
Lehman of the University of
Washington in Seattle, who
led the study.
In addition to allowing
women to treat more tumors
earlier, MRI can also reas-
sure women that their other

enabling them to avoid a

nizing choice some women
make just to be safe.

The facts on domestic violence:

*A woman is beaten every 15 seconds.
*Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between ages, 15 and 44 in
the United States, more than car accidents, mugging and rape combined.

*63% of young men between the ages of 11 and 20 serving time for homicide have killed
their mother's abuser.
*One in five women victimized by their spouses or ex-spouses report they had been vic-

*22 to 35 percent of women who visit medical emergency rooms are there for injuries
related to ongoing partner abuse.
*One in four pregnant women have a history of partner violence.
*Women who leave their batterers are at a 75% greater risk of being killed by their batter

Next NAACP President Must Lead on

the Crucial Issues In Black America

By. Hazel Trice Edney
NNPA Washington Correspondent

WASHINGTON (NNPA) The weighty issues now facing Black people in America indi-
cate that the next NAACP president must be an aggressive, energetic leader focused on civil
rights in the 21st century, says veteran civil rights advocates.
"I'd think they'd be looking for a relatively young person with vision and vigor who
understands the mission of the NAACP to work to achieve social change, to work for
increased economic opportunities for African-Americans, to fight discrimination at every
level, to seek empowerment' economic, political, and social empowerment for Black peo-
ple' to find ways and means of hitting a level of global consciousness, to help organize our
people in local communities around these issues, and to rise to a new level of dynamism and
activism," says the Rev. Joseph Lowery, 85, known as the dean of the civil rights movement.
Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Dr. King in
1957, says by 'young person,' he means someone who may have been born inside or outside
the civil rights movement, but who is able to vigorously deal with the high level issues of
inequality now facing America.
"I mean people who are energetic intellectually as well as physically energetic," he says.
The nation's oldest civil rights organization, about to celebrate its 100th birthday in two
years, is once again without a president after the controversial resignation of Verizon exec-
utive Bruce Gordon after only 19 months.
Citing irreparable differences with the 64-member board, Gordon resigned amidst a con-
flict over whether the organization should follow his lead in doing more social services or
its stated mission, fight for social justice. Board Chairman Julian Bond insisted that he focus
on the latter.
Lowery and other civil rights stalwarts interviewed by the NNPA News Service appear
to agree with Bond "that the organization needs someone who can not only run the organi-
zation, but also, give strong voice to the crucial issues at hand."
NAACP general counsel Dennis C. Hayes currently serves as interim president as a
search committee is formed to seek a permanent leader.
"I think the next leader will have to embrace the absolutely critical agenda of civil rights
and racial justice; at the same time, develop new strategies to create enthusiastic interest in
the organization among the Hip Hop generation and those who consider themselves out-
siders," says Harvard University law professor, Charles Ogletree, known for his civil rights
That person should also be able to attract like-minded people from the grassroots as well
as other leaders back to the organization, Ogletree says.
"The biggest challenge is going to be to convince all of our professional organizations '
fraternities and other groups to understand that membership in the NAACP is not a lux-
ury, but a necessity. We have to be both lawyers and active NAACP members, both doctors
and active NAACP members, both teachers and active NAACP members."
The organization, cannot afford to stray too far from its roots, says Dorothy Height, pres-
ident emeritus of the National Council of Negro Women. She recalled people who would
work for the organization mainly because of the cause rather than for prestige and.big salary.
"To tell you the truth, I think in the civil rights arena, money can't be the first thought,"
says Height. "You have to move forward primarily to serve. And you have to begin with
somebody whose primary concern is to move forward our largest civil rights organization."
The NAACP has a history of conflict between the executives who execute the policy and
the board members, who make them. Lowery says the president must be a social justice
leader, but the huge board must also make some concessions.
"I think the NAACP needs to, in my opinion, streamline its board and make sure it under-
stands its mission in terms of making policy and the distinction between policy-making and
program execution and to clarify those lines so that they don't get in the middle of the stream
and find that they are not singing in the same key,' he says.
Without change, there will be consistent public doubt, says Ron Daniels, president of the
Institute of the Black World 21st Century, an Africa and African-American-oriented think
"I do think that there is some lingering concern that people in the civil rights communi-
ty might have, including myself, about the ability of anyone to really lead the NAACP.
While some people are saying that Bruce wanted to impose a sort of corporate method on
the NAACP, I think there were also problems with Mfume.'
Gordon's predecessor, Kweisi Mfume, resigned after 10 years, saying it was simply time
to rest, deal with personal matters, and pursue new endeavors. However, it was later con-
finned that he too had departed amidst conflicts with Bond.
Whether or not the organization finds someone conciliatory enough to get along with the
board, it must get someone who is strong enough to deal with the opponents ofjustice, rights
activists say.
"Now, more than ever, we need someone who is very assertive and linked up to a civil
rights agenda, particularly in terms of continuing to fight for whatever vestiges of affirma-
tive action are still there," says Daniels. "But, also to resist the kind of work that [conserva-
tive activist] Ward Connerly is doing to obliterate affirmative action all together. I think there
ought to be an effort to make sure there are not more elections stolen, certainly a critical
piece of work to push the notion that institutional racism and individual racism still exist.'
Gordon left the NAACP three weeks ago, saying one of his greatest contributions had
been increasing the membership from barely 200,000 to nearly doubling it. Perhaps the
greatest asset a new leader could bring would be the ability to enlist even more members to
fight alongside him or her, says Ogletree.
"Given what our communities, our children and our families are facing in the 21st
Century, we don't have the luxury of saying no to the NAACP," he says. "We have an obli-
gation to stand up and be counted among the ranks and file and to help the organization meet
its mission for the 21st Century."

The Star/Black Women In History



SON Born in New
Orleans, LA. in 1911, she
was the third child to John
Jackson, a barber and
preacher, and Charity Clark,
who died at the age of 25
when Mahalia was four
years old. In 1916, her
father sent her to live with
her aunt Mahalia "Duke"
Paul. She didn't allow secu-
lar music in her house, but
Mahalia's cousin would
sneak in records. Even at a
very young age, Mahalia
had a booming voice and

The Star

she would sing hymns and
old-time gospel tunes
around the house.
Mahalia Jackson is
viewed by many as the pin-
nacle of gospel music. Her
singing began at the age of
four in her church, the
Plymouth Rock Baptist
Church in New Orleans. Her
early style blended the free-
dom and power of gospel
with the stricter style of the
Baptist Church. As a teenag-
er, through her cousin's aid,
she was influenced by such
famous singers as Bessie
Smith, Ida Cox, Enrico
Caruso and Ma Rainey, and
her own style began to
emerge into a more soulful
Throughout the 1950s,
Mahalia's voice was heard
on radio, television and con-
cert halls around the world.
She sang for President

Dwight Eisenhower and at
John F. Kennedy's inaugural
ball in 1960.
She was very prominent
in the Civil Rights
Movement. Very close to
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
she often performed at his
rallies--even singing an old
slave spiritual before his
famous "I Have a Dream"
speech at the March on
Washington in 1963. She
also sang at his funeral five
years later.


Jackie "Moms" Mabley was
a true comedian. She was
born in Brevard, North
Carolina in 1897 as Loretta
Mary Aiken, one of seven
children. She was told by
her grandmother that if she
wanted to make something
of herself, she had to leave
home so, she left at thirteen
years of age and joined a
minstrel show, advising
them that she was sixteen.
Loretta's grandmother
died at the age of 104 and
many people thought that
"Moms" Mabley had to be
well over a hundred when
she was on stage because of
the way she dressed, walked
and talked.
Her stage name was origi-

nated through a relationship.
She had been engaged to a
Canadian named Mabley
and even though they never
married, she used his last
name as her last name and
added Jackie because it
sounded good to her.
Jackie "Moms" Mabley
performed before many
audiences and was the lead
for such musicians as Duke
Ellington, Louis Armstrong,
Count Basie, Benny
Goodman, Cab Calloway

Nancy Wilson, many times
before a mixed audience in
such places as the Howard
Theater in Washington, D.
C. Her career stretched
from minstrel shows to the
Harlem Renaissance to
movies, records and televi-
sion. Her first record,
Moms Mabley: The
Funniest Woman in the
World, sold more than a mil-
lion copies.
Moms Mabley died in 1975
at the age of 78.

Joyner-Kersee is often

LEONTYNE PRICE Legendary Leontyne Price by
Jack Mitchell. 1981Mary Violet
Leontyne Price born February 10, 1927)
is an American opera singer (soprano).
She % as best known for
other Verdi roles, above all
Aida. a role that she is
said to have "owned" for
almost 30 years. Her rise
to international fame in
S he 1950s and 60s was a
highly visible triumph over institutional racism, and she set a
standard for quality and longevity that has been equaled by
few American sopranos.
In an exciting generation of sopranos that included Maria
Callas, Renata Tebaldi, Joan Sutherland, and Birgit Nilsson,
Price was a leading interpreter of the lirico spinto (Italian for
"pushed lyric", or middleweight) roles of Giuseppe Verdi and
Giacomo Puccini, as well as of roles in several operas by
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. She sang with rich, sensual,
sometimes husky timbre, glowing high notes, and expressive
phrasing. Her voice ranged from A below Middle C to the E
above High C. (She said she sang high Fs "in the shower").
She is a quotable woman whose wit has entered opera lore.
Once, when discussing whether she would sing in Atlanta as
Minnie, the cowgirl lead in Puccini's La Fanciulla del West, the
Met's general manager Rudolf Bing warned her she wouldn't
be able to stay in the same segregated hotel with the company.
She looked at him and said, "Don't worry, Mr. Bing, I'm sure
you can find a place for me and the horse."
Because of her exceptional technique and great care of her
voice, she gave recitals across the U.S. and in Europe long
after her retirement from the opera stage. Among her many
honors are the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1965), the
Kennedy Center Honors (1980), the National Medal of Arts
(1985), numerous honorary degrees, and 19 Grammy awards,
including a special Lifetime Achievement Award in 1989,
more than any other classical singer.

Introduction of Andrea Giggetts

University of Florida's First Black.
Female Student Honored

Andrea Giggetts _-
Born a poor girl in
Tuskegee Institute,
Alabama and dreamed
of someday overcoming
her adverse poverty,
societal racism, and
many other obstacles
that plagued her young
life. Somewhere and
somehow, she felt that
education, hard work,
and playing by the rules
would enable her to
reach her dreams of
becoming an educator,
politician, business-
woman, and eventually
into the halls of corpo-
rate America. By all
accounts, Andrea
Giggetts fulfilled those
school girl dreams and
could have enjoyed the
fruits of her labor but
she felt that no matter
how well-dressed, well-
connected, well-paid,
and competent she was,
there was a vast majority
of others who were
struggling and were still
at society's margins.
So, it's no surprise to
many that Andrea
Giggetts has taken her
remarkable optimism,
self-confidence, work

ethic, business skills,
and practical thinking to
television. For over five
years, Andrea has shared
her expertise on human
resources, business,
workforce development,
education, and careers in
a no-nonsense fashion to
over one million view-
ers. This popular and
much-in-demand weekly
segment on WJXT's
Morning Show (Channel
4), AskAndrea, gave her
the platform to train,
educate, inspire, moti-
vate, and yes, chastise,
those who refuse to
work hard, sacrifice, or
to those who may use
victimization as reasons
for failure. More impor-
tantly, Andrea- takes her
viewers into the mine-
fields of corporate
American and provide
"little kfiown secrets"
and other practical tips
on how to navigate the
workplace, how to over-
come racism, sexism,
and the "old boy's club"
that still permeates into
the fabric of companies.
Tiring of seeing
African Americans hav-
ing the "employee men-

tality" by wanting to find
security in working for
corporations rather than
starting their own busi-
nesses, Mrs. Giggetts
launched her own com-
pany, Giggetts &I
Associates, which spe-
cializes in providing
human resources, super-
visory and managerial
training, a speaker's
bureau, and corporate

Andrea's passion for
workforce development
is not only seen in
Jacksonville. Because
of her professional
expertise, she was
selected to develop an
Outreach and Placement
program for the
Embassy of Jamaica.
She is frequently
requested to deliver
motivational and inspi-
rations speeches and
seminars across the
country and is often
quoted -by the local
media on various work-
place issues. She readily
assists companies on

first black trained nurse

After graduating and

working as a private
duty nurse she was able
to join the Nurses
Associated Alumnae of
the U. S. and Canada
which was organized in
1896 and later named
the American Nurses'
Association (ANA).
Few blacks were able to
become a member of the
ANA since they were
required to first be a
member of the state
association and the
southern associations
would not allow black
membership. Therefore,
Black nurses formed
their own organization -

The National
Association of Colored
Graduate Nurses in 1908
where Mahoney deliv-
ered the welcoming
address at its first con-
vention in 1909.
In honor of Mahoney,
the NACGN established
an award in 1936 and
even though the organi-
zation merged with the
ANA in 1951, the Mary
Mahoney. Award has
continued. Nurse
Mahoney died on
January 4, 1926 and in
1976 she was named to
the Nursing Hall of


fidence of the health
care industry.

Dorothy's goal is to

Jacksonville. She said that
she witnessed, at 8 years
old in Georgia, her father
being beaten almost to
death, soaked in his own
"blood and thrown on their
front porch by the KKK
because of his efforts in the
civil rights movement.
They thought he was going
to die but he was able to
get well, regain his health
and strength and continue
his battle for civil rights.
She said that at that

moment she felt strength
engulf her body and instill
in her determination to
fight for freedom, educa-
tion and economic empow-
erment for the Black com-
munity. Dorothy's present
goal is to train our youth to
educate, organize and
advocate. She said the
community belongs to us

be included, we are includ-

... A

- Bank On It In the years
after the Civil War,
Virginia was not an. easy
place to live. The divide
between rich and poor was

as wide as ever and the
chasm was considerably
worse for newly emanci-
pated blacks. In Richmond,
the Independent Order of
St. Luke was created, but
what started as charity'
soon became empower-
ment because of the tenac-
ity of Maggie Walker.
The daughter of ex-
slaves, Walker was born in
1867 and raised in poverty.
They lived in an alley
house supported by wages
from taking in laundry. A
gifted student, Walker fin-
ished high school at 16 and
began teaching, only to
work for the St. Luke
organization, which later
promoted her to executive
secretary. While with St.
Luke, she helped it to
establish a newspaper, a
printing press, an insur-
ance company and a col-
lege educational fund. but
at the same time, she saw
that few if any blacks knew

much about finance and
investing, and none of
them could get loans from
white-owned banks. So she
set out to convince the
community that their
money should be pooled
and lent out at a savings
In 1903, she convinced
those who would listen to
her to bring together about
$9,400 and opened the St.
Luke Penny Savings Bank,
becoming the first woman
of any race to preside over
a savings institution at a
time when only a handful
of women held power in
corporations. "We need a
savings bank," she said.
"Chartered, offered and
run by the men and women
of this order. Let us have a
bank that will take nickels
and turn them into dol-
Bank customers
deposited a nickel a week
into their accounts, and the

assets continued to multi-
ply. By 1913, the bank had
collected $300,000 in
assets. By 1920, it had
helped to purchase 600
homes. In 1929 the Great
Depression struck, crip-
pling financial institutions
nationwide. But St. Luke
Savings had enough in
holdings to absorb all the
other local black-owned
banks and become
Consolidated Bank and
Trust, holding assets of
$400,000. The bank is still
headquartered in
Richmond today.
Although, she suffered
from diabetes, which
resulted in her being con-
fined to a wheelchair, she
continued as a philan-
thropist and civil rights
activist, holding executive
positions in the NAACP
and the National Urban
League until. her death in

Ida s. Wells, (July
16, 1862 March 25,
1931), later known as Ida

African American civil
rights advocate, and led a
strong cause against lynch-
ing. She was a fearless
anti-lynching crusader,
suffragist, women's rights
advocate, journalist and
Wells was born in
Holly Springs, Mississippi,
the daughter of a carpenter.

Her parents were slaves
but the family achieved
freedom in 1865. When
Wells was 16 both her par-
ents and a younger brother
died of yellow fever. At a
meeting following the
funeral, friends and rela-
tives decided that the five
remaining Wells children
should be farmed out to
various aunts and uncles.
Wells was devastated by
the idea and to keep the
family together, dropped
out of high school, and
found employment as a
teacher in a local Black
In 1880, Wells moved
to Memphis, where she
continued teaching. During
the summer sessions, she
attended Fisk University in
Nashville. Wells held

strong political opinions
and she upset many people
with her views on women's
rights. When she was 24,
she wrote, "I will not begin
at this late day by doing
what my soul abhors; sug-
aring men, weak deceitful
creatures, with flattery to.
retain them as escorts or to
gratify a revenge."
Wells became a public
figure in Memphis when in
1884 she led a campaign
against segregation on the
local railway. In 1884, she
was asked by the conduc-
tor of the Chesapeake,
Ohio & South Western
Railroad Company to give
up her seat on the train to a
white man and ordered into
the smoking or "Jim Crow"
car, which was already
crowded with other pas-

sengers. Despite the teder-
al Civil Rights Act of 1875
banning discrimination on
the basis of race, creed or
color, in theaters, hotels,
transport and other public
accommodations, several
railroad companies defied
this congressional mandate
and racially segregated
their passengers. She
refused to give up her seat
and the conductor, who
was assisted by two other
men, dragged her out of the
car. When she returned to
Memphis, she immediately
hired an attorney to sue the
railroad. She won her case
in the local circuit court,
but the railroad company
appealed to the Supreme
Court of Tennessee, which
reversed the lower court's
ruling, in 1887.

During her participa-
tion in women's suffrage
parades, her refusal to
stand in the back because
she was black resulted in
the beginning of her media
publicity. In 1889, she
became co-owner and edi-
tor of an anti-segregation-
ist newspaper based in
Beale Street in Memphis.
In 1892, however, she was
forced to leave Memphis
because her editorials in
the paper, Free Speech,
were seen as too agitating.
1892 was the same year
that she published her
famous pamphlet,
"Southern Horrors: Lynch
Law in All Its Phases". In
1895, she published A Red
Record, which document-
ed her campaign against

Is a Serial Killer at

in a remote, wooded area just east of down-

whether a serial killer might be at work.

debris for clues. The investigation has taken
on the look of a "CSI"-like television crime
mystery -- only it won't be solved in an hour.
A forensic anthropologist is studying the
bones and reconstructing them like pieces of

will examine plant growth and insects at the
site to determine how long the remains have
been there. And detectives wait for answers.
Who are they? Were they murdered? And
if so, is there a mass killer on the loose?

Harbor Pilot Avoids Disaster

Under The Sunshine Skyway

St Petersburg Harbor Pilot Tobias Rose
was navigating the 378-foot freighter
Antilles 11, filled with more than 10,000
metric tons of phosphate and heading
toward the Sunshine Skyway bridge
Wednesday when the ship's power and steer-
ing suddenly failed.
At that moment, the

So was the bridge in danger of collapsing

"The answer to that is that we have a sys-

disaster," said Pepe Garcia, an engineer with

Garcia pointed to two key features:

they could have damaged the ship and

Dear Deanna!
The weather is getting warm and I find myself in a new situation.
I have never been in a relationship during the summer because I
know I'm not faithful. I've been dating someone for almost a year
but I want to end the relationship now with the possibility of
resuming the love after the summer. My girlfriend is going to be
heartbroken but I would rather do this than cheat on her as I know
I will. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do?
Honest John Online-Reader

Dear Honest John:
Why don't you be faithful instead of acting like a dog in heat just because the weather gets
warm? Other than being rude and immature, there is no excuse for your actions. However,
you're being true to your nature but your girlfriend deserves better. If you know you're
going to be unfaithful, respect her and end the relationship and don't go back after you've
played in the streets. You should really try to turn a new leaf and keep your current love and
let it bloom.

Dear Deanna!
I can't tell you how tired I am of watching my sister go out with bad guys. She seems to
have a magnet on her head that attracts unemployed men, drug dealers and guys that look
shady. She has access to decent men in her circle. I don't understand it. My sister has a col-
lege education, a good job and nice friends. You would think that after a while, she would
be tired of financing men, getting abused and dealing with drama. How do I get through to
Carl (Portland, OR)

Dear Carl:
Some women will overlook good guys because they seek excitement, good sex and thrills.
These relationships often crash and burn after a financial wipeout, unplanned pregnancy or
a few fights with other women. You can help by introducing her to quality men, exposing
her to positive relationships and social networking opportunities. The choice is up to her
and if she continues the "choke me, pull my hair" lifestyle, then support her and be there
when she falls.

Dear Deanna!
I'm the babysitter for my neighbor and the kid's father is starting to make hints that he
wants a relationship. He has given me flowers and we shared a bottle of wine when his wife
was out of town. He's putting pressure on me to be intimate but I don't feel comfortable in
his house. I need to talk to him to see what he wants from me and what his plans are for his
marriage. How do I have this discussion?
Stressed Babysitter (Charleston, SC)

Dear Stressed Babysitter:
The only discussion you need to have is the one asking for your check from his wife and
ending your services. This man only wants you for sex because his wife is away working
and he sees a willing babysitter. Don't be flattered by the wine because that was part of his
game to get you to give it up. You don't need to discuss anything with him except the fact
you're not interested and he needs to find another babysitter and keep it moving.

By Amy Caiazza, Ph.D.
Some are calling this the "new year of the woman." We have already seen one
woman, for the first time, occupy the Speaker's chair during a State of the Union address
and another emerge as the frontrunner for her party's presidential nomination. Indeed,
for women leaders in U.S. politics, things have been looking up in the last decade.
We've seen an increase in the number of women governors and the second woman to
serve as secretary of state. Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice have
given us new inspiration to think about what the world might be if women were in
In large part, this debate has focused on what women's leadership might mean for
policy: Would we have universal child care? Higher quality education and universal
health care? Paid family leave? If women were really in charge -- that is, if women's
leadership, lives, and concerns were fully included in politics from the local to the
national level -- we could see even more earth-shattering change. We might see our
country pursue a set of values that would shift the focus of political debate altogether.
Women have the potential to push America to embrace values of mutuality, shared
responsibility, and concern for the weakest and most disadvantaged. America needs the
kind of leadership that women can provide.
We, as a nation, can look to myriad examples where we have fallen short: Hurricane
Katrina's aftermath, increasing levels of economic inequality and hardship, a messy
health insurance system.and the war in Iraq. Women have a long, historical, lived expe-
rience that speaks to the new perspectives and values that they can bring to these issues.
For all of the talk in recent years about "family values," it's been women who have tend-
ed to the values of our families, caring for one another and recognizing our responsibil-
ity to people other than ourselves.
We understand that self-interest and individual rights are important but cannot be the
only values that define our lives. This perspective is not'essential to being a woman, or
even exclusive to us, but it is shaped by centuries of living out our historical roles,
passed down, generation to generation, and is still often evident in how many women
talk and think about politics. While women have historically applied these values pri-
marily to our families, homes, and in service to our communities, we know on some
level that they are equally applicable, relevant, and profoundly important in public life
at its highest levels.
Now, as women take political leadership in increasing numbers, we hope to be taken
seriously in the ways we discuss and consider our policies and practices. This is a moral
vision worth aspiring to. We need women's leadership to translate it into the practice of
politics. Women can use their values to rethink policy and government in ways that
acknowledge a sense of shared responsibility and recognize that people do not have con-
trol over all aspects of their social and economic lives. This should lead a rich nation to
help its people, out of respect for basic dignity, when they have few choices in their
quest to keep body and soul together.
It's not hard to imagine what America, under the kind of women's leadership we
envision, might look like. Communities torn apart by disaster would get the resources
they need to rebuild. Schools would have the resources they need to truly ensure that no
child is left behind. We would not constantly toil to implement more tax cuts for the
wealthiest. And we would not wage war against people who are not attacking us. This
is a moral vision that could pull us together rather than tear us apart and build empathy
rather than hatred. It has very little to do with how politicians usually talk about moral
values, but may be closer to how most of us live our lives --. and how most of the
American people would have our government and politicians lead the country.
When politicians return to the mantra of moral values, we hope that women are at
the forefront of those conversations. In the 2006 congressional elections, women voters
led the call for fundamental change. Their voices should be heeded. We believe that an
infusion of women's political leadership carries the promise of refraining our policy
debates in ways that bring new and fresh ideas about the values we pursue as a country.
We believe that, given the chance to lead, women just might hold the country to a new,
and higher, moral standard.

The End of the Job
by Ester Davis
Downsizing, restructuring, buyouts, mega-mergers.
Whatever happened to laid-off, fired or not hiring? The
new language of business jargon is intriguing.
Downsizing means right-sizing. Buyout means some-
thing was wrong-sized. Jobless means de-jobbed. And
there is a genius, aka corporate hatchet man, who finds
meaning, millions and accolades for cutting 20 percent
of the workforce..(Warning! This probably will be edit-
ed out.)


It is very important to remember that there was once a time when the person was fired
and the position was kept. Today the worker and the job are fired. The job leaves home and
picks up a hitchhiker. Think of the '80s and '90s. Now, half of those jobs are gone forever.
Poof: Hocus. Pocus. Gone! And they are not coming back.
My day normally starts and ends with reading. And all that I miss, a homebound retired
pilot who reads newspapers from around the world fills in the gaps. They also have a well-
attended web prayer session at 5 a.m. every morning. Thank God!
Verizon Communications, the second-largest U.S. telephone company, and five Asian
phone companies said recently that they will build a $500 million undersea broadband
cable network that links China and the U.S. To grasp the scope of this undersea network,
you need a large atlas. The project's capacity will be more than 60 times that of the current
network, supporting the equivalent of 62 million simultaneous phone calls. So who else is
investing in this venture? Let's see, there are China Telecom, China United
Telecommunications, China.Network Group, Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom and South
Korea's KT Corp.
AT&T, of course, is not going to be left out of this competitive sport. It also is plan-
ning to expand its cable network in Asia. It is in talks with Telekom Malaysia and
Singapore's Starhub to build a cable link between the U.S. and Southeast Asia.
Now, you can see that this article is painting a picture with an antique road show frame,
worth diamond pennies for your thoughts. Realistically, the downsizing, buyouts and de-
jobbing are limited absolutely to one part of the world, don't you see? When communica-
tions move, aviation moves. When aviation moves, corporations move. When corporations
move, leisure travelers move. It's a simple global mix master without 18-wheelers.
The jobs that we have been taught to seek the jobs from which we have been con-
ditioned to expect lifetime employment, benefits, retirement packaging no longer exist.
Today, the largest private employers in the U.S. are not General Motors, General Electric
or any of those guys. The correct answer is temporary services, i.e., Manpower and Office
Duly note that while the job as we know it is disappearing, opportunities abound and
are exploding like never before. But do not look for a roadmap, textbook or dictionary. The
world and increasing technology are moving too fast to stop and write it down for you. Let
me tell you what to do. Find a machete. A what? OK, find one, and clear yourself a path-
way through this dense but profitable and ever abundant new free-enterprise jungle. Oh,
while designing the machete, don't forget that investment club.

Shaq Remains a Big Winner

Following in the foot-
steps of Dave Bing, Magic
Johnson, Michael Jordan
Sand other athletes-turned-
entrepreneurs, Shaquille
O'Neal already has inter-
,ests that run from athletic
shoes and clothing to a
chain of fitness clubs and
even two-dozen coin-oper-
ated car washes in Florida.
"I didn't do it for the

But his most ambitious
venture to date is taking
shape outside the restau-
rant's window, which looks
out on to the same water-
way through which Miami
Vice's Crockett and Tubbs
once raced their speedboats
in pursuit of drug traffick-
Along its shores are,
glass and steel condos,
including the skeleton of
one Metropolitan Miami
that O'Neal's new prop-
erty company is erecting
with a local developer.
When it is completed, the
$1bn project will have
1,143 condominiums in two
towers anchored by a gour-
met grocery store and a 24
Hour Fitness Shaq Sport
Club. It will also include
office space and a hotel.
O'Neal will not say how
much money he has con-
tributed to the project, but
he is quick to brush aside
recent talk that Miami's
property bubble is about to

burst. "The property busi-
ness is where it's at because
you can't make no more
earth," he says.
It turns out that he began
on a small and sentimental
scale, buying and renovat-
ing "fixer-uppers" (proper-
ties in a bad state of repair)
more than a decade ago in

those early extravagances
and his bold public image,
Shaq-the-investor turns out
to have a surprisingly con-
servative streak. One of the
first things he did when he
entered the league after
clearing up his parents' debt
was to buy government
bonds. Then he bought

his native Newark, New
Jersey. "When I was grow-
ing up, it was the most
beautiful place in the world.
Now it's entirely different,"
he says of the rusting town,
which was once an industri-
al hub but is now better
known for its spiralling
murder rate.
O'Neal graduated to
building strip malls when
he moved to Los Angeles to
play for the Lakers, then on
to apartment buildings and
now the multi-tower devel-
opment down the street. He
announces with trademark
bravura that his plan "is to
be one of the biggest devel-
opers in the world a la my
good friend Donald
In fact, when he struck
the deal, O'Neal says
Trump called him to offer
congratulations: "He said:

It will be all over be by the time 1 sit down to write'
this column next week. The NCAA Champs will have
been crowned and everyone will be talking golf and
green jackets. So here's how I see it going down.
The schedule guys were smart to save the Gators for
the late game. The classic rematch of last year and the
best game of the tournament.
Bottom line hang-on for a'great weekend of bball,
Gators over the Buckeye's by 8 points.

AP All-Americans
I had to go back and read it three times. I even took
my glasses off and cleaned them but it read the same.
There it was, Al Horford All American.
Third Team.
I thought it was bad enough two weeks ago when the
Coaches' All-American relegated Joakim and Al to the
second team. But third team?
Could I be that far off, has Gator fever effected my
common sense, I dunno.
So I went on-line to see where the pundits and prog-
nosticators put big Al in the NBA lottery. Most sites
have Horford from 3rd to 5th with Noah at 6th or 7th.
Not surprising was that Corey Brewer was in several top
Does that mean I'm right and that Horford belongs on
the first team. No, it only means that people have differ-
ent opinions. Maybe the All-American balloting should
take place after the NCAA Tournament since the top tal-
ents usually get a chance to play with top talents.

Billy Donovan'
The top Gator University of Florida President
Bernie Machen has made it clear that a shortage of
long green will not be the problem when it comes time
to talk with Billy Donovan about a contract extension.
Machen left no room for doubt when he said "he
owes it to himself to look at the Kentucky job, if they
offer, but we're not going to lose him to anybody."
This is not "show me the money" so what does
Kentucky have to offer. The Wildcat alumni is demand-
ing to a fault. The honeymoon and UK is measured in
weeks not years. Lose 10 games in a season ard you
are a tattooed 'loser.'
Donovan can only expect one advantage in
Lexington. There would be no competition from the
football team.
If the Gators win their second straight NCAA basket-
ball title this weekend and Urban Myer only goes 7-4
next season with the Tebow Express, it won't change
things. The University of Florida is now and always will
be, a football school!
There was also the rumor this week that the Miami
Heat was interested in Billy. Maybe Rick Pitino can
offer Billy some words of wisdom about coaching at the
prima-donna level as compared to the college boys.
Maybe if Tubby Smith hadn't decided that Corey
Brewer the 6-foot-9, 185-pounds of dynamite from
Tennessee., couldn't make it as a Wildcat, we wouldn't
even be having this conversation.
SBut here we are and my bet for Kentucky is
Marquette's Tom Crean but I wouldn't recommend the
job to anyone.
The other interesting rumor floating around is that the
Wildcats are using the same search firm that brought
Tubby to Lexington and negotiated his departure -
to find his replacement.
Is that triple dipping or what!

Phoenix, AZ NFL commissioner Roger Goodell hopes to hand down disciplinary
measures within 10 days of meeting with Tennessee cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones
and Cincinnati receiver Chris Henry. Jones has talked to police in 10 separate incidents
since being drafted in April, 2005 and has been arrested five times. On Monday, Las
Vegas police recommended prosecutors file a felony charge of coercion and misde-
meanor charges of battery and threat against Jones, stemming from a Feb. 19 strip club
fight and shooting. Henry is among nine Bengals players arrested in less than a year. He
had four arrests in 14 months, including marijuana possession, a weapon charge and a
drunken-driving count that resulted in a guilty plea to reckless operation of a vehicle.

going to make me work that much harder and appreciate racing that much more and
enjoy it that much more," Gordon said. "Or it's.going to make me go, 'I don't even want

FSU Starts New Streak

With 4 Wins Last Week

The No. 1 Seminoles picked up where
they left off and started a new win streak
last week with a three game sweep of
Boston College at home followed by a
Tuesday night win at home over JU.
The Noles started this new streak with
an 5-1 win over Boston College in ACC
play. Bryan Henry looked strong going
eight innings and striking out 10 batters as
he improved his record to 8-0. Dennis
Guinn paced the Seminole offense going
4-for-4 with a career high three doubles.
The win kept FSU perfect in ACC play.
Saturday night Senior Michael Hyde
set a season high as he threw seven innings
allowing just two runs and no walks
upping his record to 8-0. After allowing
two runs in the top of the first, Hyde shut
the Eagles down for the next six innings.
FSU completed its sweep of Boston
College Sunday afternoon behind the hit-
ting of Dennis Guinn who came up just a
single short of hitting for the cycle.
Seminole starter Ryan Strauss carried a no-
hitter into the seventh inning picking up
his sixth win.as Florida State dowfied
Boston College 7-0.
Guinn had his second big game of the
weekend in the finale. The junior outfield-
er recorded six extra base hits in the series,
four of which were doubles, and reached
base all five times on Sunday. Guinn
slugged 1.600 for the weekend and batted
.700 on top of knocking in four RBIs.
This puts the Seminoles at 26-1 for the
season and 6-0 in the ACC..

150 miles to the Southeast, the strug-
gling Gators gained some traction and
picked up three conference wins in a 3-
game visit to Auburn.
In the Friday night game Freshman
.Cole Figueroa snapped a 7-7 tie with a
two-out RBI single in the 10th to lift

a four-time

Florida to an

Gator Chris Petrie had a career-high 4-
for-4 with two runs, Brian Leclerc went 3-
for-5 with a pair of RBIs and a couple of

Your ely Horo scopFrom Actual Police Reports
our Weekly HoroscpeHH ou Hear About
Did You Hear About?

(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) The key to a
- .--. happy beginning
of the week -- a
week that's full
of accomplish-
ment? Look at the long
view, and look at your expe-
riences in the larger context
of the world around you.
Everything's interconnect-
ed, after all. Around
Wednesday and Thursday,
some time alone is time well
spent; you need to think
now. There's something
going on beneath the sur-
face, so uncover it. From
Friday afternoon through
the weekend, you're raring
to go -- anything exciting
and different will match
your mood, and meeting
new people brings great
opportunities of all kinds.
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) Keep an eye out
Sfor anything and
anyone a bit dif-
ferent at the
Beginning of the
week. A fire drill, a chance
encounter with a stranger, a
chance to try something
you've never done -- they're
all windows of potential
transformation. Jump
through! Around
Wednesday and Thursday,
remember that an important
part of relationships is let-
ting people have space and
letting them be themselves.
Offer open-ended -support,
and you'll be beloved.
You've got charm to bur
from Friday afternoon
through the weekend, and
luckily you've also got the
smarts to see who's genuine
and who's putting on an act.
(Gemini May 21st thru
June 21st) Being thrifty at
the beginning of
the week gives
you a bit of a
creative chal-
lenge, and it also gives you
a little extra for a future plan
or splurge. Make your own
lunch and make your own
fun. You're quick with ideas
and have the stamina to
carry them out around
Wednesday and Thursday.
Progress abounds! On
Friday and Saturday, watch
out for some sort of interfer-
ence -- a misunderstanding,
a busybody, something get-
ting lost in the shuffle. Be
clear and concise. Sunday's
a dreadful, bad-hair, bad-
mood day. Not really --
that's an April fools joke!
The stars send you extra
sexiness now. Make the
most of it!
(Cancer June 22nd thru
July 22nd) Your nice little
..... home environ-
ment is subject
y. *'./: to disruptions at
the beginning of
the week. For you, this can
be very unsettling, so plan
soothing activities out in the
world (like a massage or
your favorite walk perhaps).
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, hesitation isn't
wimpy, it's smart. Gather
more information, and get a
consultation from a cowork-
er or a friend. When in
doubt, just say no. Expect a
little tension between your
social life and private time
from Friday afternoon
through the weekend. There

are lots of demands on you
now; set good priorities and
take care of yourself.

(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22) The beginning
of the week may
seem like a funny
time for
romance, but
love works in mysterious
ways. Be ready to rearrange
your schedule accordingly!
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, others may be
satisfying on the surface,
but you want to know more.
Delve deeper and increase
your understanding expo-
nentially. Then, from Friday
afternoon through the week-
end, you've got the kind of
adventurous, fun energy that
makes all sorts of things
happen. Decide what you
want and go. for it -- or just
follow your own sweet
instincts. Take your time.
(Virgo August 23rd thru
September 22nd) If indeci-
sion strikes at
the beginning of
the week, look to
those you
admire and respect. (Think:
Who do I know who makes
really, really good deci-
sions?) They'll be happy to
help, and you'll be glad you
asked. Around Wednesday
and Thursday, feed your
head -- you'll be bored and
restless if you're not learn-
ing or doing new things.
Meeting new people is extra
fun now, too. From Friday
afternoon through the week-
end, life may involve inter-
ruptions and assorted
delays. Find a way to kick-
start a situation or bring a
book to while away the time
in a meaningful way.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd) Don't
put off until
tomorrow what
you can do on
Monday and
Tuesday, which look to be
terrific days for.you across
the board. You've got plenty
of energy for accomplishing
tons at work -- and after
hours, you're hot! Around
Wednesday and Thursday,
though, work issues may
occupy a lot of your atten-
tion. Keep your priorities
(more money? More free
time? Doing good? Making
a name for yourself?) in the
front of your mind. From
Friday afternoon through
the weekend, your balanc-
ing act is beautiful -- brains
and beauty, talking and lis-
tening, and much, much
(Scorpio October 23rd
thru November 21st)
You're close,
'f '' but you're just
... not quite get-
ting it at the
beginning of the week.
Whether it's a work issue
or an interpersonal matter,
you need to keep looking
to find the right solution.
Around Wednesday and
Thursday, however, you're
finding what you've
sought -- and more, if the
stars have their say. Your
personal power is peak-
ing, and all sorts of oppor-
tunities are knocking,
even romantic ones. But
watch out for getting too
caught up in something
that may be fleeting from

Friday afternoon through
the weekend. Be wise and
look at the long tenn.

(Sagittarius November
22nd thru December 21st)
Make your own
fun at the begin-
ning of the week,
and you'll make
the world much brighter for
those around you, too -- not
to mention that they'll love
you. Just be sure you're tak-
ing time with decisions
now. Around Wednesday
and Thursday, you're in a
more serious mode, and
rightfully so. You've got
something to sort out, and
the sooner the better. From
Friday 'afternoon through
the weekend, however, the
good times start rolling
again. If you throw in some
fresh scenes and fresh
faces, the momentum's
gonna get pretty unstop-
pably great.
(Capricorn December
22nd thru January 19th)
Dive in arid
S keep busy at the
Beginning of the
week. Getting
something going, whether*
at work or elsewhere, is
easy now -- just be subtle
about it. There will be plen-
ty of time for horn-tooting
later! Around Wednesday
and Thursday, get organ-
ized, both in terms of your
physical surroundings and
your headspace. Figure out
where those feelings are
coming from and move for-
ward with personal power.
You're not one to give up
easily, so avoid doing so
from Friday afternoon
through the weekend --
though you might need to
slow down to succeed. It's
counterintuitive, but it just
might work.
(Aquarius-January 20th
thru February 18th) Your
nemesis could
-. ,. become. your
best friend or
greatest ally at
the beginning of the week,
or you might find that you
suddenly like something
you've always hated. Give it
a whirl and transform your
world. Around Wednesday
and Thursday, your differ-
ent, deeper perspective may
be at odds with that of those
around you. Will you tell
them about it or keep it to
yourself? Everything's
more in balance from
Friday afternoon through
the weekend, and you'll
love parties, groups and
games now. Plan something
that puts together all three
and you'll be an all-star.
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th) The heck
with the status
quo as the week
'. begins -- you've
got a bigger, bet-
ter idea, and it's time to
enact it. If money's
involved, however, make
sure you're not taking too
big of a risk. Around
Wednesday and Thursday,
be watchful and dig around
a little. You can find out
something now that'll really
come in handy, whether it's
work-related or interperson-
al. Speaking of work, take
time off from Friday after-
noon through the weekend -
or at least try to stay away
from your boss. Meanwhile,

when it comes to relation-
ships, consider carefully
how the things you say
come aCross.

WHY THE DOG'S HEAD? Officer S. was dis-
patched to the 5700 block of Colbert Dr. where he
met with Ms. L.(victim from last week), her
boyfriend, suspect Mr. K and a juvenile witness, son
of Ms. L. During the investigation, the witness made ?
statements that he observed the suspect, "chop off a ?
dog's head with a long kind of knife." The witness
was separated from the victim and the suspect and'
questioned. the witness.stated that some time 1st
week, the suspect took one of the dogs in the woods
next to the residence. According to the witness, he
followed the suspect into the woods but was told by the suspect to "go back to
the house." The witness started back through the woods and heard the animal
"screaming." the animal's head was positioned on a tree branch on the ground. I
was led through the wood s by the witness to the location where the incident took
place. I observed a tree branch with what appeared to be blood next to a covered
area of leaves and a blood soaked material. Animal control was called to the

a message. Ms. M stated that the suspect asked her to tell the victim that "he is
going to die." The officer then made contact
with the listed victim, Mr. H., who advised
K. that the suspect is his child's mother. Mr. H.
stated that the suspect was mad with him
because he found out about the suspect sleep-
ing with her cousin's fiance. Mr. H. also
advised that he and the suspect got into a ver-
bal argument over their child falling and get-
ting hurt. Mr. H. advised that he does not think
that the suspect would cause him physical
harm, but he feels that she may have a relative
or friend try to hurt hiM. The victim was given a Case Information Card.

were fighting at their home over money. The suspect stated that Mr. KL, vic-
tim#1 tried to run him over with a car, but he threw a branch at the car. That's
when he said the victim got out of the car and hit him in the face with his fist and
ran. Mr. LF declined all medical treatment and to have his photo taken. The sus-
pect was arrested and read the Miranda rights. While he was being arrested, he
stated that "he beat his uncle donkey-kong style."

HIS MUSIC WAS HEARD OVER 100 FT An officer observed a suspect
driving his vehicle southbound on Cleveland Rd., playing his vehicle's radio
loud enough to hear a hundred feet away. As the vehicle approached 30th St. he
drove southbound in the northbound lane.
He'almost hit another motorist. When he
tried to make a right turn onto Division, he
clipped the curb, then made a wide turn from
center of the lane of travel to a complete
stop. The officer made contact with the driV- ,
er, he, immediately noticed a strong odor of .
alcohol on the suspect's breath and an odor
of aftershave coming from the person. The
suspect's speechwas slurred and when he .
was asked to that the exercise test he said he
didn't want to take it and make a fool of
himself. He was placed under arrest and
transported to PTDF. The suspect was polite and cooperative.

RANCH SAUCE AS A WEAPON An officer was dispatched to the 700 block
of Prospect St., in reference to a simple battery and criminal mischief that
occurred at a restaurant. Upon his arrival he spoke to Victim FT. Ms. FT advised
him that she and her friends were at the restaurant when an unknown suspect
attempted to talk to her. Ms. T. advised she told him to leave her alone and that
is when he became very angry calling her a "bit-- and a wh_re." She further
advised the man spit on her as she was walking out of the door. Ms. T. stated she
threw her Ranch sauce at the man, hitting him in the neck, and that is when he
rand outside, grabbed the rear passenger window, and pulled it out. She advised

I Think I Love My Wife

By Rych McCain,
Photos 2007 by
Andre' B. Murray/
Her striking beauty is
undeniable and her
pleasant, calm personali-
ty is infectious when you
are in her presence. Such
was the case as I sat
across from actress Gina
Torres for a recent inter-
view for her latest movie
I Think I Love My Wife.
She plays Brenda
Cooper, the spouse of
Richard Cooper played
by, Chris Rock. The
movie centers on a way-
ward husband who is
having a mid-life crisis
and his wife is the type
of woman that he can't
live without but is hav-
ing a problem living
with her.
Torres is a veteran
actress with heavy tele-
vision credits. She was
born in Manhattan, the
youngest of three chil-
dren to Afro-Cuban par-
ents. She attended both
the Fiorello H.
LaGuardia High School
of Music & Art and
Performing Arts and the
New York City High
School of Music and Art,
where she trained as a
mezzo soprano in opera.
She also sang jazz and
performed in a gospel
choir. Torres was voted
one of People Espafiol's
"25 Most Beautiful" in
2003 and People
Espafiol's "50 Most
Beautiful" in 2004. She
recently completed
shooting three independ-
ent film features i.e.,
JAM, which follows 18
travelers stranded after a
car accident; South Of

Pico, which casts her as
an emotionally isolated
waitress who witnesses a
deadly accident and the
political thriller Five
Fingers, where she por-
trays Aicha, a terrorist
Islamic woman, opposite
her real life husband
Laurence Fishburne. She
and Fishburne met on the
set of The Matrix and
were married in New
York City in September of
2002. The couple is
expecting their first child
in June.
Torres won the ALMA
Award for Outstanding
Lead Actress in a
Syndicated Drama Series
for her role in Cleopatra
2525 and was nominated
for the International Press
Academy's Golden
Satellite Award for Best
Performance by an
Actress in a Supporting
Role in a Series, Drama,
for her role as Jasmine in
Angel. Her recent televi-
sion appearances include
a multi-episode arc on
FX's "The Shield," play-
ing Academy Award win-
ning actor Forest
Whitaker's ex-wife Sadie
and a return to ABC's
"Alias" as the popular
super villain, Russian
agent Anna Espinosa. She
can also be seen in the
new Fox series
"Standoff," a hostage
negotiation drama which
casts her as the head of
the Los Angeles Crisis
Negotiation Unit.
In getting back to the
subject of cheating from
her new movie, Torres is
asked weather Rock's
character is really cheat-
ing since he never had
physical sex or contact
with Nikki (played by
Kerry Washington).
"It is definitely an
emotional affair," she

Torres at the Hair Show premiere.

Laurence & Luina lorres I-shburne

responds. "Whether bodi-
ly fluids are being
exchanged or not, at that
stage in the game it really
doesn't matter because he
is spending time and
investing all of this emo-
tional energy with this
person. I remember talk-
ing to someone a long
time ago and they said the
definition of cheating was
who are you sharing the
stuff with that makes a
marriage special and inti-
mate? If you are infiltrat-
ing and compromising
that area of your life with
somebody, then yeah, you
are cheating."
What did Torres cher-

ish most about playing
this role? She laughs.
"I loved and wanted
the opportunity to play
something other than the
badass, capable woman.
It was incredibly intrigu-
ing and also sort of time-
ly for me to be some-
body's wife and mother,
to show a different side,
a softer side and a
woman that doesn't have
all of the answers. That
was the biggest draw for
Judging from what
we have seen so far,
Mrs. Torres-Fishbure is
definitely a force to be
reckoned with.

By Rych McCain/ feedback-
rych@sbcglobal. net

New Book
Yes yours truly (me, Rych
McCain), has a new book coming
out next month entitled Black
Afrikan Hair And The Insanity Of
The Black Blonde Psych! This
book will greatly aid in debunkiig
the hatred and shame that blacks
have been programmed to feel about
their natural, nappy hair, which is
the most spiritually divine hair in
the entire human family! The book
is loaded with scientific facts and
details of the physiology, functions
and spirituality of natural black hair.
More details-are forthcoming.
The case against Joe Giaco, a
co-defendant in the $22 million law-
suit brought against DefJam by for-
mer music executive, Theresa
Rossi, for allegedly tampering with
Soundscan results to distort music
charts, was discontinued by the New
York Supreme Court on February
22, 2007 after it was determined that
all claims made against Mr. Giaco
and his companies, Giaco
Entertainment Inc. and
Entertainment Marketing Services,
Inc., were not true and without basis
in fact. Ms. Rossi acknowledged
making false allegations and apolo-
gized to Mr. Giaco who said he was
happy with the apology and glad the
case was over after seven long
years. West Coast rapper Numskull
has a new album dropping at the end
of June on Ball or Fall Records You
may remember a duo call Luniz
which was Numskull & Yukmouth
who made the smash hit "I Got 5 On

Shooter stars Mark Wahlberg,
Michael Pena, Danny Glover, Kate
Mara, Elias Koteas, Rhona Mitra,
Rade Sherbedgia and Ned Beatty.

Mark Wahlberg is fast becom-
ing a film mega-star and his latest
offering Shooter is a testament to
that fact. Wahlberg's character,
Bob Lee Swagger is an ex-marine
sniper who had experienced
betrayal in the military when a
command was given to abandon
him and a couple of his comrades
behind enemy lines. One of his
own, a U.S. combat helicopter
even tried to kill him and he shot
it out of the air. Years later,
Colonel Isaac Johnson (Glover),
finds him and tells him that his
country desperately needs his
snipping skills and experience to
stop an assassination attempt on
the President of The United
States. Instead, Swagger is set up
by a dark government cabal with
its own agenda.
Everything is pretty tense and
believable until Swagger gets
shot twice and spends the next
day and night engaging in high
speed chases including swim-
ming from a car that he has
crashed in the filthy Hudson
River. It would take Superman to
buck the strong tide of that river
with two bullet wounds getting
soaked with every pollutant
known to man and still be able to
drive until dawn to a friend's
house two states away.
Hollywood should stop this fool-
ishness of the hero sustaining a
life threatening injury while still
pulling off incredible stunts that
an athlete in top form can barely
do. Other than that, Shooter is a
great film with plenty of suspense
and action. This should be one of
the better films of the year!
Premonition stars Sandra
Bullock, Julian McMahon, Nia
Long, Kate Nelligan, Amber
Valletta and Peter Stormare.
This is a good psychological
thriller and one of the best per-
formances by Sandra Bullock to

African Women Writers Discuss Love in New Book

By Grace Akinrinade,
Special to the NNPA
from GIN

he struggle against
colonial and indige-
nous oppression,
poverty and disease,
is a frequent theme of
Africa's prominent
While some women
writers have lent their
voice to social justice
struggles in the patri-
archal societies in
which they live, oth-
ers have sought a
space to explore the
realm of love, says
British-based book
publisher Becky
Ayebia Clarke.
In African Love
Stories, a new book
from Ayebia Clarke
Publishers, the pain,
strife, and desires in

the heart of African
women are portrayed
through 21 narrations.
The authors in the
collection all women
- reject their tradi-
tional portrayals as
victims. '
Instead, strong per-
sonalities dominate
the narratives, fear-

norms of ageism, cul-
ture and religion.

editor of the antholo-
An outspoken pro-
ponent for women's
liberation in the
national and interna-
tional contexts, the
Ghanaian Aidoo is the
author of several
well-known works,
including Our Sister

Killjoy: Reflections
from a Black-Eyed
Squint and Changes
and was Ghana's
Minister of Education
in 1982.
In her introduction,
she warns the casual
reader, lest they mis-
take the work for
another 'chick lit'
book, that these seri-
ous love stories not
only address love on a
superficial level, but
"speak of the enormi-
ty of the conse-
quences of loving."
The writers' diver-
sity stands as one of
the collection's great
strengths. Seasoned
and new, young and
old, these writers,
from the Sudan,
Ghana, Kenya,
Nigeria, Uganda, and
Zimbabwe, celebrate

Ugly Betty:
An oldie but a
goodie, the
holiday y
episode "Fake
Plastic Snow"
finds Betty
(America Ferrera) organizing
the office holiday party while
looking for someone to re-
place her as Daniel's (Eric
Mabius) assistant when she
goes to work for Sofia (Salma
Hayek). Speaking of Sofia,
she's away and wants Daniel
to play to see if his feelings
for her are real.

9 p.m. on
R Raines:
Some career
changes are
harder to
make than
others es-
pecially if
someone stands to lose big
bucks when you leave the
old job. Raines (Jeff Gold-
blum) investigates the mur-
der of a young drug dealer
who was trying to get out of
the business and become a
comic book illustrator.

The Star

Love con'td from D-5
Leila Aboulela writes
about a husband's
effort to immerse
himself in his wife's
Islamic culture for the
sake of their future
' South African
Antjie Krog writes a
unique narrative in
'Three [LOve] Stories
in Brackets' in which
the stories of three
women remind the
reader that a woman's
life story is usually
lived in secret and
told secondhand.

Sindiwe Magona
'Modi's Bride' depicts
triumph within
tragedy. An engaged
couple pursues mar-
riage despite the mar-
ital norms and taboos
that make their unusu-
al circumstance a near
abhorrence. Yet in
their faithfulness to
each other, their soci-
ety gradually accepts
them as an anomaly.
Passionately writ-
ten and without apol-
ogy for its resistance
against traditional
love stories, African

Love Stories embarks
on a new chapter in
African writing.
African Love Stories
makes for a wonderful
read for anyone inter-
ested in Global
Literature, feminist
readings, or who sim-
ply wants to enjoy a

good love story.
