Georgia Now 3rd in Nation
for Black Buying Power
Georgia now has more
Black buying power than
California, making it the
third largest Black con-
sumer base in America.
Only New York and Texas
have more buying power
than Georgia, which surged
past four other states since
1990. Jeff Humpheys,
director of the University of
Georgia's Selig Center for
Economic Growth and
author of the "Multicultural
Economy" report stated this
is really a big deal because
it is so hard to top
California. In Georgia, the
Black buying power is an
astounding $58 billion.
What is adding to its growth

an open or closed casket? Maybe
you want a special friend to do

and guest registers-they add up
quickly. Many opt for the funer-

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 scattered?
S 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 misconception is that when
the body is cremated you don't
hold a funeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

After a weekend filled with a bevy of activities that
included an historical' tour of First Coast African American
sites, a luncheon and hospitality, the class convened at the
Clarion Hotel .for even more abundant revelry.
As we moved about meeting and greeting it was espe-
cially delightful to see such noteworthy members of the
Class of 1947 as John Bustamante, Esq., a pillar of the
Cleveland, Ohio political and legal community, the ..

Florida and Food Stamps
State of Florida Ranks 12th worst in the U.S.
Only 43% of Florida's Low-Income
People Receiveing Food Stamps
Half of the nation's eli-
gible poor are not getting
the food stamps to which
they are entitled, a study
released Tuesday found.
The District of Columbia
had the highest participation
rate in 2004, at 71.8 percent,
while Missouri ranked first
among the 50 states in get-

Florida ranked 12th
worst in the United States,
with 43 percent of the state's
receiving food stamps. And
when it came to counties
with populations of one mil-
lion or more, Palm Beach
and Broward counties were
the sixth and seventh worst-
ranked. According to the
study, 29.6 percent of low-
income residents in Palm
Beach got food stamps; in
Broward, 32.2 percent
received food stamps.
The study found that
those living in poorer coun-
ties were more likely to
receive benefits, and that
factor was evident in South
Florida. Miami-Dade fared
better than its northern
neighbors, ranking 30th
among the big counties. Its
participation rate was 55.7
Nevada ranked last
among the states, with 32
percent of its eligible resi-
dents getting food stamps.
Overall, 50.2 percent of
the nation's qualified poor

food to eat, and 50 percent

Greg Speeter, the project's
executive director. "While
the food-stamp program
provides a vital service,
clearly too many people are
still going without."

with the highest participa-

As it grapples with a reverse-discrimina-

women and minorities share in government
Going into a meeting Tuesday, county
officials had suspended a longtime program

For Barack Obama!

In what may be the most anticipated event of this election
cycle, superstar talk-show host and media mogul Oprah
Winfrey is opening her famed Santa Barbara-area estate to
host a four-star fundraiser for fellow Chicagoan Barack
Obama on .Sept. 8,

N.Y.). It -shows the
fight is far from over: The Obama-Winfrey headliner is like
a glitzy re-release of a film in anticipation of Oscar season.
"It's a trifecta for Obama," said Hollywood politico and
Huffington Post blogger Rick Jacobs, one of the recipients
of Tuesday's fundraiser e-mail. "New donors, a rarefied ball
with the queen of celebrities and a chance to glimpse the
woman everyone seems to want at least for vice president.
This one's hard to top."
Details about the
event were not being
disclosed, but in true
Hollywood fashion it
was being touted in
the e-mail as "the
most exciting Barack
Obama event of the

announced celebs better be prepared to raise at least
$25,000 from friends, family and a few high-class strangers.
For $50,000, you can stay for dinner (and wander through
the house while searching for a bathroom).
Kerman Maddox, a Los Angeles-based political consult-
ant and an Obama fundraiser, said the event has invigorated
the senator's local loyalists. "It was a blow when Steven
Spielberg endorsed Hillary," Maddox said. "But this is a
huge shot in the arm. Everyone is motivated. They don't get
any bigger than Oprah."
Winfrey told Larry King recently that she decided to back
Obama because she knows him personally: "I think that
what he stands for, what he has proven that he can stand for,
what he has shown was worth me going out on a limb for
and I haven't done it in the past because I haven't felt that
anybody I didn't know anybody well enough to be able to
say, I believe in this person."
King asked if "there is a side of you, the woman side, that
would lean toward a Hillary?"
Winfrey told King she has "great respect" for Clinton: "I
think I've said this before and it's true, because I am for
Barack does not mean I am against Hillary or anybody else.
So the fact that I would endorse Barack Obama and the fact
that I would support Barack Obama, I have not one negative
thing to say about Hillary Clinton."
Winfrey is America's diva of chat, and now the question
is: Can she transfer her Midas touch to politics? Can
Winfrey, the political fundraiser, do for her candidate what
Winfrey, the book club hostess, has done for American pub-
lishing, change the financial landscape?
Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman, also on the
Winfrey invite list, says her endorsement is simply "better
than the Good Housekeeping seal. She has the power to
change people's minds," Bragman said.

Obama Addresses 'Black Enough'

The Illinois Democrat
and fundraising leader in
the race for his party's pres-
idential nomination said his
appearance is black and that
his work as a civil rights
lawyer, a community organ-
* izer .in Chicago and a state
senator make him much
stronger on black issues
than any other candidate.
Obama opened his
remarks to the National
Association of Black
Journalists with a joke that
he was intentionally a "little
late" to prove his "black-
ness," in keeping with an
age-old stereotype that
blacks are not concerned
with being punctual.
During a Q&A session,
Mr. Obama turned the
tables on the journalists,
asking them why they con-
tinue to pepper him about'
"This is a troubling
Michelle and Barack Obama
question, for it to be perpe-
trated and we should ask
ourselves why that is," he
told a capacity crowd of
nearly 1,500 at the group's
32nd annual convention.
Obama went on to say
that blacks don't want to get
too excited about his
prospects of winning the
presidency because they
don't want to be disappoint-
ed if he loses.
"And my attitude is let's
try it," he said. "Why defeat
ourselves ahead of time and
why say we can't do some-
thing before we even
attempt to do it?"
Obama also said he is
not taking the black vote for
granted, but argued he could
do more than anyone else to
change politics and race
relations if he is president.
S"The day I'm inaugurat-
ed the racial dynamics of
this country changes imme-
diately, with Michelle as
the first lady and images
of me playing with Sasha

Mr. Obama said, referring
to his wife and one of his
daughters. "Those images

were between the ages of 17 and 29. Around half of homicides against blacks
occurred in cities with a population of at least 250,000 people. Among single vic-
tim-single offender homicides, about 93 percent of black victims were murdered by
black offenders. Almost 77 percent of black homicide victims were killed with a
firearm. In 2005, nearly 5 percent of homicides against blacks were considered to
be gang related.
On Monday, Senator Mel Martinez visited Jacksonville and met with Sheriff John
Rutherford, Mayor John Peyton and other local leaders to discuss a new plan to
reduce crime in this area. The senator said Jacksonville is one of the cities of con-
cern for a multi-million dollar crime rate crackdown. Presently, Martinez is look-
ing to place a $5 million investment for a crime fighting regional task force. The
monies would be added to present funds to "help get some of these violent crimi-
nals off the street before they can re-offend," said Sheriff Rutherford. The task force
will also allow law officers to share information with other agencies. The senator
said such a program is already working in Atlanta and the Gulf states. He is hope-
ful the funds will be available for this new program by the end of 2007.
SC LC Continued from A-1
tration because "black contractors have difficulty getting contracts and this one ven-
dor received six" said Dr. Gray. SCLC said the administration is in non-compliance
with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development concerning Section
3. The city had given $582,000 to ProLogic while more than 50,000 households are
living below poverty, despite the fact that there is some $78 million per year to offer
economic opportunity to the poor but has failed to do so. In addition, the leaders feel
the present Economic Injustice is the root of the crime problems, high murder rate,
poor education and under employment that could be reversed if the $78 million per
year was given to address economic opportunity to include economic assistance, job
opportunities and apprenticeship programs for the more than 50,000 house holds.
The SCLC leaders say they are on record with HUD and the City Hall concerning
this issue and will welcome help to "Stand up for Justice," and to "Stand up for
Truth." Dr. Gray and Minister Muhammad said economic justice is the new civil
rights. "Where is the 'Moral Imperative' in the mayor's connection with ProLogic
and Section 3?" said Dr. Gray. Mayor Peyton has said he had nothing to do with
awarding the contracts to ProLogic; ordered an investigation and.acknowledged the
organization no longer has contracts with the city.

The Rising Violence
Against the Homeless
Editors Note: Thefollowing article is taken from the The Southern Poverty Law Center's
Intelligence Project which is dedicated to monitoring hate groups and extremist activity in
the U.S. It was written by Brentin Mock and published in the Summer 2007 Issue-
Harold Washington has two strikes against him: He's Black, and he's homeless.
For the last seven months, Washington has slept in tents, under bridges, or on park bench-
es. He temporarily claimed a room at a friend's apartment until his roommate got in a fight
with his girlfriend and she set the place on fire. "We were all lucky to get out of that one,"
Last November, the day before Thanksgiving, he wasn't so lucky.
Washington had just finished a day of labor at Tropicana Field, a major league baseball
stadium located in a formerly African American, working-class neighborhood near down-
town St. Petersburg. Soon after he left the stadium, Washington was ambushed by a gang of
six White youths he described as "skinheads."
"All I remember was waking up from a coma," said Washington. "I ain't heard no more
Similar reports of violent targeting of the homeless are rising sharply in America.
According to Hate, Violence, and Death on Main Street USA, a 2006 report from the
National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH,) showed 26 states recorded assaults or murders
of homeless people committed last year, not counting so-called "homeless-on-homeless":
Nationwide, there were 142 reported attacks on homeless persons, up 65 percent from
the 86 logged in 2005, and up almost 300 percent from the 36 docked in 2002. Included'
among the 2006 crimes were five rapes, six people set on fire and 20 murders. These num-
bers are almost certainly low, because a high percentage of attacks on the homeless are
believed to go unreported.
The escalating violence and accompanying media coverage has prompted lawmakers in
six states California, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada and Texas to intro-
duce legislation that would extend.hate crime laws to enhance penalties for violent crimes
committed against homeless people.
A seventh state, Maine, recently passed a law mandating harsher penalties for violence
against the homeless without labeling such attacks hate crimes. Florida led the nation in
2006 with 48 reported attacks on the homeless in cities in all regions of the state-but legis-
lators there voted down the proposed legislation in May. The state with the second highest
tally, Arizona, had 16 and all but one occurred in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
Last January, shortly before the NCH report came out, three teenagers were arrested for
the shooting death of two homeless men in St. Petersburg, Fla. during a botched robbery.
"Clearly, homeless people are targeted because of their lack of housing," said NCH
executive director Michael Stoops. "If every homeless person had a door, a key, whether to
a shelter, or apartment or motel room, there would be less attacks."
The spreading violence has raised a key question for Stoops, other advocates for the
homeless, and the larger civil rights community: Should the homeless, who are frequently
targeted out of hatred but also because of the sheer ease of attacking them, be protected by
hate crimes legislation?
Harold Washington, who considers himself lucky to have survived last year' beating at
the hands of six skinheads, still carries his Bayfront Medical Center hospital records in a
Black leather waist pouch. They show he was admitted to the emergency room and dis-
charged last Dec. 1. The attack left scars on his forehead and an abscess below his blood-
shot right eye.
After the attack, Washington moved into St. Petersburg's infamous "tent city," a place
where dozens of homeless people congregate inside tents on a small plot of land just outside
the downtown business corridor.
SSt. Petersburg homeless advocate Eric Rubin, who used to be homeless himself, said that
homeless people created the tent city last year to be a safe zone of mutual protection, with
its own democratically elected government and security patrols. "That is what brought it
[the tent city] together, people being beat up and murdered," Rubin told the Intelligence
Report. "The homeless spontaneously came together for protection, and that's what we're
still working toward."
The tent city made headlines in January when local police raided it, slicing tents down
with blades while homeless men and women cringed inside. The campers rebuilt. But on
March 13, the encampment swarmed with police and contracted workers who broke the city
down again. Municipal officials planned to move the campers to a city-run lot where they'
would be photographed, fingerprinted and wrist-banded, then supervised by city officials.
Washington, who is the tent city's elected donations intake officer, sat aloof in a rickety
lawn chair, watching the city workers dismantle his city one stake at a time. Kathy Hines,
the encampment's elected mayor, said almost everyone who stays there has been attacked or
harassed, including herself. "I've had eggs thrown at me and my stuff stolen," said Hines,
known affectionately to her constituents as "Mom." "They're just rich kids. ... When they
throw whatever at you and you see the car they're driving, it's not an old Chevy, y'know?"
Many attacks on the homeless go far beyond throwing eggs from nice cars. In February,
two White teenagers and a 22-year-old White man videotaped their premeditated attack on
a randomly chosen homeless person, who they kicked and beat in Corpus Christi, Texas.
On March 27, homeless Army veteran John D'Amico and his friend Michael Wantland,
who's also homeless, were attacked by two 10-year-old kids and one 17-year-old in Daytona
Beach, Fla. One of the 10-year-olds allegedly smashed D'Amico in the eye socket with a
"Yeah, they attacked me because I'm homeless," D'Amico told the Intelligence Report.
"They were calling me 'ol' man'- this and that. They were just looking for a fight."
Two days later, in Laguna Beach, Calif., a 22-year-old member of MS-13, a particularly
violent Latino street gang, was,arrested for stabbing a homeless man he apparently chose at
Neo-Nazis Chip In
Unlike the Laguna Beach stabbing, the vast majority of attacks on the homeless are car-
ried out by young, White and middle-class males, according to the NCH study of crime sta-
tistics. The study showed that 84 percent of attacks on the homeless in 2006 were carried
out by assailants under the age of 25 and 62 percent were committed by youths between 13
Stoops blames at least some of the violence on "thrill seekers" inspired by the wildly
popular "Bum Fights" DVD series.
"These kids are bored to death," said Stoops. "They're at home watching violence on
TVs and on their computers, and they say, 'Let's go emulate what we just saw.'"
Last January, Florida Atlantic University surveillance cameras captured three teenagers
beating to death a 45-year-old homeless man with baseball bats in Fort Lauderdale. The
graphic images quickly made their way to mainstream news broadcasts and YouTube video
"We had been the lonely advocate on this issue until the beating in Fort Lauderdale,"
said Stoops. "That became our Rodney King video, which raised awareness and sparked
media attention and legislation being introduced." While most of the White youths who
attack homeless people are not affiliated with hate groups, there are notable exceptions.
In April 1992, long before NCH began tracking violence against the homeless, several
members of the Aryan National Front, a hardcore racist skinhead gang, beat and kicked an
African American man to death beneath a bridge in Birmingham, Ala., shortly after leaving
an Adolf Hitler birthday celebration.
"It's just another dead, homeless Black man," the gang's leader, Bill Riccio, said after-
ward in defense of his followers. "If their entire life is messed up forever because one Black
homeless man lay dead, then I think that's a tragic waste."

Dress Codes = School Spirit, Self-Esteem
(NAPSI)-A great way to get youngsters into the mood for learning, many parents and teach-
ers have found, is to have them dress for school success.
This may be one reason more and more public as well as private schools are asking students
to wear a uniform or adhere to a dress code. Others cite the way standardized dress codes build
confidence and self-esteem, improve behavior, encourage feelings of belonging, raise student and
teacher expectations and increase school spirit. Uniforms not only increase school spirit, they cre-
ate a sense of equality and unity among students regardless of their economic status.
Interestingly, the current uniform trend first began in urban areas in \which district schools
were experiencing problematic behavior. These districts successfully improved their school en\i-
ronments through programs that included the implementation of dress codes with uniform colors
Shortly after the success of these urban school districts, several nearby suburban districts ini-
tiated uniform programs as well. The trend has spread and now stricter dress codes are at work in
school systems nationwide.
Many parents are also glad the\ don't have to spend so much money on their kids' clothes or
spend time arguing about what to wear to school. The students don't have to worry about whether
their clothes are fashionable enough for their friends. DRESS CODES continued on B4

I Winning Tips For Year-Round School Success I
(NAPSI)-It's easy to get
excited when back-to-
school time rolls around,
but how do children and
their parents keep that
energy going all year long?
"Many of us get all
revved up at the start of the
school year, but oftentimes
it can be challenging for
parents and students to
keep that enthusiasm and
momentum going all year.
Long," said Reg Weaver,
president of the National

What Does It Take To Score High On PSATs and S
How To Score High
On Your PSATs and
By Justin Dolecki
The Princeton Review
The PSAT is a rite of
passage for many high
school sophomores and jun-
iors. Like the SAT, the
PSAT is a standardized test
given to assess math, criti-
cal reading, and writing
skills (how good of a job
these tests do at assessing
these skills is open for
debate), but unlike the SAT,
the PSAT isn't used to eval-
uate candidacy for admis-
sion to college.
Order of Difficulty (OOD)
Each SAT section is
divided into three levels of
difficulty: easy, medium,
and hard. The first third of
each group are eas), the sec-
ond third are of medium dif-
ficulty, and the last third are
hard. (The only exception is
which do not follow this
order.) An easy question is
one that almost everyone
gets right. A hard question is
a question that almost
everyone gets wrong.
So, if a group has nine
questions, the first three are
easy, the second three are
medium, and the last three
are hard. Since easy, .medi-
um, and hard questions are
worth the same. amount,

time making sure you get

Process of Elimination
Instead of trying to find
the right answer, try to find
the wrong answers. By
eliminating wrong answers,
you greatly improve your
chances of getting the ques-
tion right because even if
you can't narrow your.
choices to a single answer at
the end, you will have only
two or three to choose from
instead of all five.
Physically cross out the
wrong answer choices in
your test booklet, and then
guess among whichever
answer choices remain.
Only a quarter point is
subtracted for every wrong
answer, while a full point is
added for every right
answer. So, if you can elim-
inate at least one answer
choice, guess among the
two, three, or four remain-

HOW TO HELP
WITH HOMEWORK .
(NAPSI)-Students today may seem to
have more homework than ever before,
but helping youngsters succeed in school
could be easier than many parents realize.
While parents who have been out of
school for many years may struggle to
help with subjects such as advanced math
and science or foreign languages, they
can still create a positive learning envi-
ronment that fosters a productive home-
The best way to support homework
efforts is to design a framework for stu-
dents to do their best work. Here are
some helpful tips:
1. Assume that your child will have
studying to do every night.
Establish and maintain a regular
homework time that works around your
Child's activity schedule and preferences
and is dedicated to studying, even when
students do not have homework on a par-
ticular night. Set up a comfortable, dis-
traction-free place to work, and encour-
age your child to write down all assign-
ments daily and use a planner to stay
2. Ensure that your child knows each
teacher's homework policy.
Most middle and high school teachers
hand out a printed summary of home-
work expectations or post it on the class
Web site. Review the expectations
together and encourage your child to ask
the teacher questions before
leaving the classroom, so the
child has the information
needed to complete assign-
ments properly and on time.
3. Be available and teach by .N-
While you've probably .
had a long day, it can benefit
you both to be near your child
during homework time. You
may consider setting a good
example by using this time to
read or pay bills, but remem-
ber to check in with your child to offer
your support and advice, and be careful to
watch for signs of failure or frustration.
4. Don't hesitate to line up extra sup-
port if needed.
If your child is having regular prob-
lems completing homework assignments,
it may be time to schedule a teacher con-
ference. A teacher may offer small-group
study sessions or recommend peer or vol-
unteer tutors from universities or high
You can also take advantage of new
technology that has changed the way stu-
dents learn in and out of the classroom.
For example, LeapFrog's new FLY
Fusion Pentop Computer can serve as a
homework coach by providing interac-
tive, step-by-step help for students in
math, writing and.foreign languages, and
lets students upload their handwritten
notes and convert them into text docu-
5. Inspire learning outside the class-
Children who see opportunities for
learning everywhere are more likely to
view schoolwork as an extension of their
interest in the world, rather than a burden.
If they enjoy sports, encourage them to
hunt for articles in the newspaper or mag-
azines about their favorite teams. If they
love the arts, share the critics' reviews of
movies or plays.

These new species

The scientists found
that nearly 386 square
miles (1,000 square kilo-
meters) of forest, almost
the size of all of Hong

The woods stretched
from the shores of Lake
Tanganyika up to eleva-
tions of 8,940 feet (2,725
meters) above sea level,
or roughly seven times

been isolated from much

Water Resources Act
Includes Funds for
Legislation Applauded by
Congresswoman Corrine Brown
Congresswoman Corrine Brown has been a a strong sup-
porter of legislation authorizing federal funding for local
water and civil works projects, known as the Water
Resources Development Act of 2007 (Conference Report),
which passed the House with a vote of 381-40.

Like all transportation projects, those included in this bill
will put people back to work, improve our communities, and
create economic activity according to Congresswoman
Projects included in the legislation include:
Ft. George inlet, Timucuan Ecological and Historic
This study will determine the causes of rapid and unnat-

include considerations to protect the aquatic ecosystem of
the Federal Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve and
a fixed sand bypass system to open the inlet and replenish
the Duval County shoreline.
Lower St. John's River Basin Revitalization
This project will study the feasibility of opportunities for
restoring, preserving, and protecting the Lower St. Johns
River Basin, including environmental ecosystem restora-

Human Rights Commission; 40th Anniversary Celebration
Last week the The Jacksonville Human Rights
Commission held a 40th Anniversary Celebration themed
"Change Happened Here." Today's Commission was organ-
ized in June 1998 as the successor organization to the
Jacksonville Community Relations Commission and the
Jacksonville Equal Opportunity Commission.
Since its inception in 1967, the JHRC has worked dili-
gently to ensure that all citizens of the Jacksonville commu-
nity enjoy a community free of discriminatory practices.
The purpose is to:
Promote and encourage fair treatment and equal oppor-
tunity for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex,
national origin, age, disability, and marital or familial status;
Promote mutual understanding and respect among mem-
bers of all economic social, racial, religious and ethnic
Eliminate discrimination against and antagonism
between religious, racial and ethnic groups.
This Eveits Journal noted that it represented a small
glimpse into the work that the Jacksonville Human Rights
Commission and its predecessor organizations have been
involved in over the past 40 years.
The daring men and women, who were selected to serve,
when Mayor Hans G. Tanzler and the members of the City
Council established the Commission, had no idea what to
expect. However, together they charted a path that brought
us to this day. As research was done to compile this histori-
cal accounting of their work, it was obvious that the
Commissioners of the former years, as those who have
served since that time, were committed and dedicated indi-
Often times they did not agree on how to resolve issues
that came before them but they forged ahead. Their legacy
of dedication should serve as a model to all of us who are
concerned about justice and equality for all citizens.
As you peruse the pages that follow. Please think not just
about the reports, of initiatives, or investigations that took

Norman, Linda F. Wilkinson, Rudolph Murray, and current

place. Instead, focus on the impact that the action may have
had in the life of one individual or the change that may have
occurred in the community at large. At some point, you may
get a sense that not much has changed but it has!
The mere fact that the Commission has existed for 40
years has created change in how people of color and women
are treated in the workplace. It has helped to open doors,
literally, for those who are disabled and has served as a
voice of inclusion for Asians and Hispanics and other immi-
grants residing in our city. Equal access to employment
opportunities, housing, and places of public accommoda-
tion are available because the Commission has survived
challenges and brokered changes in a variety of venues in
our beloved city.
The Commission. was and still is the conscience of
change in our society.
Those who served may not agree with decisions made,
the approach taken or the results achieved. But try to imag-

I know of a young man who, to me, seems to be stuck in a
situation. He has a child with his girlfriend of three years off
and on and she constantly tricks him into believing the only
way he can see his child is if he is with her. He doesn't
believe anything anyone tells him about his rights as a father
and continues to fall freely into her web of lies. How can I
Friend Wanting to Help (On-Line Reader)
Sometimes men become stuck on stupid with women that have their children. If he's
being tricked, it's because he allows it. If he falls into her lies, then he allows it. He knew
enough to make a baby and he knows his rights as long as the internet, television and
newspapers keep running. You won't be able to reach him because he's comfortable,
enjoying himself and gladly taking everything he's being served.
I'm in the process of divorcing my husband after 8 years of marriage. He's the only man
I've ever been intimate with. Now I have a little freedom and I feel as if I'm losing my
mind. On one hand, I have a new friend that I haven't gone all the way with. On the other
hand the ex-husband of one of my friends has revealed that he wants to be with me and
has always liked me. I'm attracted to him but know this would cause problems. I've been
celibate for seven months and need to know if I should be with him and keep it a secret
or take a cold shower?
Hot and Bothered (On-Line Reader)
Dear Hot and Bothered:
You need to take a cold shower and put your eyes on someone that you can get jiggy with
that won't cause problems. If you do anything in the darkness, it will come to light and
rip you apart like a train wreck. You're entitled to have fun, enjoy yourself and have a
healthy sex life but make sure you protect yourself and keep your thinking cap on during
the heat of the moment.
I'm at a point where I must decide on going back to a popular college or staying at home
and going to a local school. I'm in this dilemma because I went away to school to play
basketball, but then I got injured. Now I'm a junior and my parents feel I should return
and get my degree. I feel that will take longer and there is no point to be so far from home.
I want to go back, but am afraid that I will be miserable since I am not playing.
Confused Young Female (On-Line Reader)
The decision in this case rests upon the shoulders of the one who is paying for the col-
lege tuition. If your parents are paying the note then you don't have a choice but to go
with the flow. However, if this is a joint financial decision, then you can take the lead and
go where you want to go. You're correct in wanting to go to a local school because it
would be easier and you won't get depressed watching your friends play basketball while
you sit on the sidelines.

The Education Black Kids in Private Schools
Get May Not Be What Parents Suspect
By: Tonyaa Weathersbee,
It's hard to believe that no one
figured out how something like
this would bother a black parent
like Whitlynn Battle.
Recently, Battle's 11-year-old
daughter, who is enrolled at a pri-
vate school in Mountain Brook,
Alabama, played Harriet Tubman
in a school presentation on the
Civil War. That was cool. But
what wasn't so cool is that after
celebrating the woman who was
responsible for leading hundreds
of slaves to freedom, Battle's
daughter and a number of other
black children then had to sing
"The Bonnie Blue Flag," a
Confederate marching song -- and
a song celebrating the system that
Tubman spent her life defying.
Battle didn't appreciate that
one bit. And she let everyone --
including The Birmingham News
-- know it. But her anger under-
scores a couple of things for me.
First of all, it reiterates how
important it is for black parents --
even those who can afford to send
their children to private school --
to not allow themselves to be
lulled into thinking that a private
education at a mostly-white school
means a sensitive or even well-
rounded one. That's especially
true nowadays, with scores of
Southern revisionists running
around trying to recast slavery and
the Civil War in a mold that tries
to make slavery seem less holo-
caustic than it was. These are the
folks who have helped to dupe
Alabama voters into doing some-
thing as embarrassing as keeping
segregationist language in its state
It also brought back a
few memories of my own
I was nine years old in
1968, and the year was a
sensitive one for me. It was
my first year in an integrat-
ed school, and Alabama's segrega-
tionist governor George Wallace
was running for president.
Jacksonville -- a city where one of
our high schools is named for Ku
Klux Klan founder Nathan
Bedford Forrest -- was deep
Wallace country, and many of my
white classmates had parents who
were supporting him for president.
But even then, after seeing
Martin Luther King Jr.'s funeral
on television and having my par-
ents tell me about his battles
against racists like Wallace and the
Old South social order, I felt more
of a need to rebel rather than fit in.
So when my white classmates
stood up during school assembly
programs to sing "Dixie," which
usually followed "The Star
Spangled-Banner," I kept my seat.
When my teacher asked me why I
wouldn't stand up, I told her my
parents didn't want me singing
She didn't push the issue.
So I'm glad that Battle took a
stand, because it is important for
black children to understand that
their history in this country is
quite different from the history of
white people in this country. And
while I don't have a problem with
schools representing both sides of
history -- no matter how painful --
for the sake of accuracy, represent-
ing history is one thing.
Celebrating it is something else.
To me, having black children sing
the lyrics to a song that glorifies
1 the oppressors of their ancestors
Councilwoman Glorious Johnson
The Community and Crime "t
It saddens me to hear and see so much social disorder and
the disrespect for life in our communities. I had an opportu- .
nity to speak with Lt. Edward. Here are some of his sugges- '
An organized coalition and/or independent group of .
courageous individuals speaking truth to power, to the grow- '.
ing number of violent youths who perpetrate fear and terror
in the community, and to the governmental, corporate and \
political process that pass up opportunities to reduce the sys- .
temic trend that create inadequate protection and due process
for ordinary citizens. This coalition should be actively
engaged (full-time) in bringing resolutions and building
social bridges between mainstream citizens and an emerging sub-culture.
For many years, the churches have facilitated leadership, influence, and have been catego-
rized as the ,sole spiritual linkage providing vision to the African American Family. In many
cases, ministers have taken some calculated risks by allowing positive political influence and
issuing social messages from the pulpit, but many will not take that risk.
Nonetheless, the faith community must continue to become more unified, and take the lead
with a common approach, which is; addressing the issues of the senseless violence and self
destruction of our people. But first of all, religious leaders must recognize the common chal-
lenges that confronts all of God's people and put aside the non-sense egos in order to effective-
ly collaborate with other religious and community leaders to influence social change in the
community, and the congregations' should say Amen.
Now! We must quickly go to the people, and here's how:
Plan: Plot a map of churches in a few tipping point communities, and ask those churches for
their help (which they will probably buy-in),
Strategy: Get on a BIG BUS and take volunteer congregation members, which includes min-
isters, parents, grandparents, young men, young women, businessmen and women, educators,
public safety personnel, military, retirees, and of course ex-offenders.
Engage: Set up temporary workshop (knock on doors as needed),
Talk to the people (relatives, associates, well-wishers)
Listen tote people
Create mentoring opportunities (also opportunity to recruit mentors)
Plan: Recruit- Mentors are our military personnel, public safety personnel, white and blue col-
lar workers, retirees, college students, athletes to go to the people.
Recognize influential community leaders and positive talents (put names and faces out there)
Support influential community leaders (Don't allow one or two disagreements spoil the com-
mon good of the community),
Collaborate with private and public business and provide "on the clock" opportunities for
mentoring in targeted schools, communities, and events.
Provide incentives (via public charities and donations)
#3 Involves Government, and Law Enforcement:
Plan: Aggressive Community Policing- (Not only the enforcement part)
"Show and tell" them exactly what the crime problems are,
"Show and tell" them who is responsible (i.e. black males, white males, 18-29 years old, etc)
Listen to the people's concerns for not wanting to get involved,
Tell them that you are troubled by the high number of African American young men impris-
Discuss the cost of intervention vs. detention vs. college education
Discuss the pipeline "conduct violations in school-to dropouts- to prisons"
Listen to the people- Acknowledge that there is a sense of hopelessness and despair among
some of our citizens (not everyone sees the world out of those "rose colored glasses")
Collect surveys or written essays from high school students (11-12 grade) asking them about
solutions to crime problems.
Strategy: Evaluate what services are needed and implement small plans.
Don't be afraid to address economic issues (it already out the), tell the people it is either on
the way or is not ever coming, unless they initiate business creation
Address rental property and landlord issues,
Get the mentors to the children and youths,
Get the parents connected to the people who can assist with parenting skills.
There are so many things that we can do to make a positive difference in our communities. It
is up to us to save usl!!!
Whitlynn Battle (above, with her daugh-
ter, Destiny) voiced her displeasure when
a presentation at the Alabama private
school her child attends featured the stu-
dents singing "The Bonnie Blue Flag," a
Confederate marching song.
amounts to celebrating it -- and the
school officials should have been
conscientious about that. I mean,
geez, part of the lyrics of the song
claim the Southerners are "fight-
ing for the property they gained by
Now, what property do you
suppose they're talking about?
Once again, the experience
shows, more than ever, why even
the most affluent black people
should never leave the total educa-
tion of their children to any system
-- private or not. And when it
comes to slavery, an institution
that indelibly hobbled the progress
of black people in this country and
whose effects are felt today, no
black child should ever be singing
a song that remotely glorifies it.
That's why what our children
learn at home is really important,
especially when it comes to their
own heritage and dignity.
I'm glad that Battle realized
that. Even if the people at her
daughter's school didn't.
Sowlds like cross-trattiiisy to us.

* Tiger Getting Better
Gator Media day
The Jaguars got their first true test with last Saturday
evening's preseason ice-breaker. The fans will start to
answer their own questions but it is way to soon to
expect a grade.
Two of the most critical questions in my opinion, are:
Have the Jaguars really solved their safety problems,
do they have both the quality and depth for the season.
Is the passing game that we have heard so much about
a reality or a wish.
Lets start with the passing game which means Byron
Leftwich. Byron needs some protection to be really
effective. We had a peek here and there Saturday of an
offensive line. Lets call it a work-in-process at this point.
If Leftwich is pressured we will never have a chance for
those new receivers to develop.
At Safety the Jaguars have a talented player in Gator
Reggie Nelson who was reportedly a unanimous choice
among the coaches at draft time. Reggie will certainly be
a starter but it is a big jump from Gainesville to
Jacksonville and I expect it to be a few gamers before we
see what we want to see in Reggie Nelson.
Maybe it's to soon for a grade but how about a
progress report OK, the Jags are looking good!.

After winning the PGA
Championship on Sunday,
Woods is five majors away
from tying Jack Nicklaus'
record of 18 majors. At this
rate, Tiger could end up
with twice the numbers of
the Golden Bear.
Woods, 31, won his 13th
major in his 44th profes-
sional start in a major.
Nicklaus was 35 when he
claimed his 13th major in
his 53rd professional start

Woods is an odds-on
favorite to catch Nicklaus,
in part because of the
upcoming major venues.

Gators Media Day: Starring
Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer!
Florida Gator football players met the media last Friday
in an annual event that unofficially marks the beginning of
a new season.
It is a day where players and coaches are photographed
from every angle and talk endlessly
about expectations for the season -,
But in many ways, this media day
was a coming out party for Tim
Tebow. Tebow, delayed because he I 'i
was finishing an exam, was the final ..I
player to answer questions. He
smiled, joked, and appeared perfectly y !

terback and new field general of the

ognizable faces of college football.

stopped by Florida fans. That 'In
includes the Philippines, where he -
was born and where he returns each I
year to do missionary work.
"Gator fans are everywhere," Florida's
Tebow said. "The University of
Florida is in Gainesville and the Gator Nation is every-
where. I take it as an honor that people want to talk to you.
There are not a lot of places you can go that there are not
Gator fans. I'm thankful. I remember when I was young and
looking up to guys. I don't want to ever treat anyone like I
am better than them. If I can put a smile on someone's face,
I would be willing to do that." To many who have been cov-
ering the Gators long enough, you could close your eyes and
hear Danny Wuerffel, who was also a son of a minister.
If Tebow is the new Field General, Urban Meyer is the
new Patriarch of the Gator Nation! With a National
Championship in his second year, and a QB like Tebow as
his Field General, Meyer sounded nothing but optimistic.
On the offense:
"I think there were some things we couldn't do last year,
but there were some things we could do. Chris Leak was a
tremendous football player. I check out the Bowling Green
offense through Tim Tebow and the evolution of the offense
is phenomenal. You are going to see us revert back to a lit-
tle bit of the Utah things, but I think the quarterback gets a
lot of criticism and a lot of glory. For Chris, the most diffi-
cult time in his career was when you have Dallas Baker,
Andre Caldwell and Jemalle Cornelius out. You really had
no one in h114e that could make a play. Tim has a in .u that
Chris didn't have. He's got some guys. It's not so much the
play calling, in our offense the perimeter has to be dynam-
ic. We're pretty close to that right now."
On Derrick Harvey:
"My expectations are as high as

. 'f;.. .:.<," es. Derrick is above and beyond
where we thought he'd be as a leader

Jaguars Game Night Briefs
All eyes will be on the Jaguar's On-line tonight as
they take on the Tampa Bay Bucs. Byron Leftwich and
the fans remember too well last weeks performance
when the offensive line surrendered two sacks and a
roughing-the-passer hit on Leftwich.
Other areas that will get a close look by the coaching
staff include Adam Podlesh whose punting skills have
graded acceptable but not what has been expected.
On the bright side Second-year receiver Charles
Sharon looks to add depth to the receiving corps chal-
lenging for one of the starter spots. Sharon has held on to
his place among the team's top receivers and lines up
alongside Ernest Wilford and Dennis Northcutt with the
No. 1 offense.
A native of Palatka, Fla., Sharon is one of four
Jaguars who played high school foib.ill in Jacksonville
area, joining Rashean Mathis (Englewood), Dee Webb

AUGUST 18, 2007 AUGUST 24, 2007
March 21st thru April 19th
Patience really is a virtue on Monday. Allow
for extra time, for others and yourself. Around
Tuesday and Wednesday, though, you're back
in action, quick with your thinking and ready
to go. A new project or person likely entices
you now -- explore! Following through on
plans and commitments is key at the end of the
workweek, on both an occupational and per-
sonal level. Show you've got a good attention
span and demonstrate how rock-solid you can
be. When the weekend comes, someone's
ready and willing to help you out -- or maybe
indulge your every whim!
April 20th thru May 20th
Your feelings run extra deep on Monday,
whether it's a certain someone you're passion-
ate about or something less personal. Take a
more logical look around Tuesday and
Wednesday, especially before you make a
sweeping statement or commit to a plan. At the
end of the workweek, something a little out of
the ordinary inspires you. Take a jaunt off your
usual path -- a particularly adventurous friend
makes an excellent traveling companion on the
road of life now. When the weekend comes,
though, you'll want to be in your comfort zone.
Spend some time alone.
May 21st thru June 21st
Be ready and willing to help on Monday --
offering without being asked earns you extra
cosmic credit. Around Tuesday and
Wednesday, use that nimble mind of yours to
understand where someone else is coming
from. Some serious communication i required
at the end of the workweek, whether at work or
in a romantic context (or, likely, both). Share
your honest, considered assessment and ask
that others do the same. This weekend, you'll
like a lecture or a game -- something to get
those mental wheels turning -- more than just
partying or hanging out.
June 22nd thru July 22nd
Your domestic side's in full effect at the begin-
ning of the week. Don't be surprised if you go
into an out-of-season spring-cleaning frenzy at
home, reorganize your workspace in helpful
new ways or even spend lots of time cleaning
out your inbox. (Don't forget to back up those
files, too!) On Thursday and Friday, your idea
and someone else's may be at odds; the chal-
lenge is not to take it too personally. Work
toward common ground instead of being
touchy about turf. As for the weekend, some-
times you can be overcautious, but this time
you're right to hesitate. Wait for something
that's on your mind.
July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Dive in on Monday and go deeper than usual.
Finding a little more information or asking
more questions gets you far. Around Tuesday
and Wednesday, you're on fire in more ways
than one -- boldly speaking your mind, making
sparks fly and looking hot in the romantic
department. Don't wait to make a move or
make a date! Consider toning down that proac-
tive approach at the end of the workweek,
though, in both your personal life and at work.
Say less, and listen carefully. When the week-
end comes, a relationship requires flexibility
and finesse, plus give and take. You'll make it:
Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
With all the talk going on, Monday may lack
action. Manage your expectations accordingly.
Around Tuesday and Wednesday, the stars
have a special assignment for you, if you're
ready to accept it: Let life get messy. Lose (a
little!) control. Take a risk. Be daring.
Expanding your heart and mind brings beauti-
ful stuff into your life, including, perhaps,
some of the romantic variety around Thursday,
Friday or Saturday. Working on a relationship,
on yourself or on an issue pays off now. Then,
starting Saturday or Sunday, a reorganization
of some sort is in order. Have fun with it!
Sept 23rd thru Oct
Fair's fair, but be sure to look out for number
one on Monday, especially in a work context.
Then, around Tuesday and Wednesday, asking
more questions across the board shows you
care and makes you look smart. Examine any
and all situations (using your trademark diplo-
macy as needed). Bonus: Responses are very
positive now. You'll want to heed any funny
feelings around Thursday and Friday. Look for
personal patterns, and avoid having to revisit
old lessons. When the weekend comes, it may
be lessons in love that are in store for you --
and learning's never been so fun.
Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
Quick -- make use of your amazing energy on
Monday. Get an a.m. jumpstart and power
through a potentially monumental day. Around
Tuesday and Wednesday, are you a leader or a
follower -- or perceptive and flexible enough
to move between the two? Relationships of all
sorts require finesse now, but around'
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, interpersonal
interactions may be magically finessing them-
selves. Feel the connections and build the
bonds! When the weekend comes, though,
watch your temper. What are you really feel-
ing, and why? Think it through before you
No% 22nd thru Dec 21st
You may not be at your most alert on Monday,
but your mind's working away. Around
Tuesday and Wednesday, some shiny, happy
energy's on tap from the stars. Show self-con-
fidence and you'll earn bonus points at work;
show your affection in your personal life and
you'll make friendships (and more-than-
friendships!) flourish. At the end of the work-
week, the more original the idea, the better --
and no one's more capable of inventing (and
reinventing) than you. Let your individuality
play a part in all areas of life, and let it carry
you through an inspiring, creative weekend.
Something amazing may happen 'by chance'
Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
You'll get by a lot better with a little help from
a friend or a coworker on Monday. Don't be
too proud to ask! Around Tuesday and
Wednesday, show those who think you're all
about material things your deeper, more philo-
sophical side. It may very well be the thought
that counts now -- and you've got to share it.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday are stellar if the
cosmos has its say. You'll have all sorts of pos-
itive, passionate energy coming your way to
get all sorts of things done -- in work, at home,
in love! But be frugal on Saturday and Sunday.
You'll soon see why that's necessary.
Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
You might be full of ambition on Monday -- or
you could be a complete slacker. Consider
tempering such extremes! Progressive energy
and excellent spirits are on the way around
Tuesday and Wednesday. Work or play involv-
ing others looks especially inspiring and
rewarding -- and they'll love being around you,
too. At the end of the workweek, however,
expect bumps in your personal road, if not out-
right roadblocks. Even your best efforts at a
detour could dead end. But by later on
Saturday and through Sunday, new routes
make themselves known -- better, more excit-
ing and altogether great routes.
Feb 19th tliru Mlarch 20th
What you do on principle makes all the differ-
ence on Monday. Stick to your values and
beliefs. Around Tuesday and Wednesday,
doing the right thing -- and treating those
around you right, as you always do -- merits
rewards. Keep in mind: This might involve
treating your boss, your mom or another
authority figure with kid gloves. Then, on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, you're unusu-
ally practical -- you're the one with the great
solution at work or the most fun social plan.
Of course, you're ever aware of the interper-
sonal element as well. Sunday finds you
dreamy -- plan to relax and unwind.

and suspect Mr. RG were arguing over a
set of drums. She stated that the drums

them in the trash. She stated the suspect
went to retrieve the drums from the trash
and that's when they began yelling at each
other. The victim stated she was pushed I
down to the ground, choked around the
neck and punched in the face. The victim
refused rescue and did not have any visible
marks on her person. The officer made contact with the suspect after he was read
his rights and he stated that he hit first. He stated he was arguing with the victim
over his drums that she had thrown away. He stated he did not choke or punch her,
but that he did slap her several times. Case cleared by arrest.
I STOPPED COUNTING.. an officer was dispatched to the 5400 block of W.

*-. -;' a plastic bag with a beer bottle in it and
S- struck him in the head with it, breaking the
bottle. He said the suspect then pulled a
white knife from his pocket and came after
him kicking his front door in. Victim #2 stated that he told the suspect if he came
inside of his house he will have to kill him. He said that's when the suspect left
and started back beating Victim #1. Victim #3 stated she.saw the suspect beating

AGAIN, VERBAL BECAME PHYSICAL an
officer was dispatched to the 200 block of McDuff
Ave. in reference to an aggravated battery. The vic-
tim Mr. AG advised suspect #1 Mr. SL and he got
into a verbal altercation after he told the suspect
that he was having a sexual relationship with a girl that Mr. SL had been dating.
Mr. AG said that he did not know that the suspect had been dating the female he
was referring to. After a verbal altercation, Mr. AG said that he left the apartment
and returned a short time later. Mr. AG said that another verbal altercation started
between he and Mr. SL and the suspect jumped on him and they started fighting.
The victim, Mr. AG stated that an unknown suspect #2 jumped in the fight and
stabbed him with an unknown object in the back. Suspect #1 pulled a knife and
started cutting the victim in the arm and stabbing him in the side. The victim Mr.
AG said he pushed both men off of him and fled the scene. He stated he called
someone to drive him to the hospital. While there, he stated he tried to give the
police there a report, but the officer told him that he would have to give the report
to an officer from the zone in which the incident occurred and one will be there
shortly. After the victim, Mr. AG, was released from the hospital and no report had
been written, he said he called to report the incident again. He said that he was

wrapped in bandages and Mr. AG stated that he received over seventy stitches in
this incident. When the officer contacted suspect #1, Mr. SL, he came to the sta-

Cuba Gooding, Jr. and the Pearls of Daddy Daycamp!
By Rych McCain,
Photos by Andre'B. Murray/
It's summertime and the
livin' is not easy for actor
Cuba Gooding, Jr's latest
movie DADDY DAY
CAMP! Whatever can go
wrong does go wrong.
Gooding, Jr. is on a row
right now with this movie
and the highly anticipated
flick "American Gangster"
Washington and Russell
Crowe that he'll co-star in
as well later this year. In
addition, he recently fin-
ished shooting the drama
"Hero Wanted with Ray
Liotta and Jean Smart and
this August he has begun
filming "Harold", a
Born in the Bronx in
1968 to parents Cuba
Gooding, Sr. (of R&B
group The Main
Ingredient) and Shirley
Gooding (of the
Sweethearts), Gooding was
exposed to the entertain-
ment industry early in life.
He began as a dancer and
at the closing ceremonies
of the 1984 Olympics with
Lionel Ritchie. His break-
out movie role was in the
1991 John Singleton com-
ing-of-age classic Boyz N
The Hood. And of course
we would be remiss if we
didn't mention his Oscar
win for his role in Jerry
Maguire. In 2002, Gooding
received a star on the
Hollywood Walk of Fame
honoring his achievements
as an actor. He is married
and has three children. Will
any of his children follow
"A child must reach a
certain mental maturity
point before they can act profes-
sionally because it is an adult
world," Gooding is quick to
point out. "I prefer that my own
children experience being nor-
mal children first, and then
decide later if they want to be
involved in acting."
Apparently, the children in
Daddy Day Camp have reached
that point because they were
pretty good. Gooding attributes
the positive energy and chem-
istry between the child and adult
actors to the film's director, for-
mer child star ("The Wonder
Years") Fred Savage. Gooding
emphasizes, "Fred's process is
steeped in children's cinema via
his film school experiences and
his television shows. So when I
met with him for this project, I
knew how well versed he was in
how to handle the kids and his
knowledge of the material."
Gooding saw his relationship
with Savage on this project as a
good collaboration. Having
played a lot of different diverse
roles has not only expanded
Gooding's excellent acting
chops but has allowed him to
soak in and adjust to the many
styles of various film directors.
He has worked with the best.
Gooding also appreciates the
many perks that his career has
afforded him. He is all smiles
when he says, "I've had so
many wonderful experiences. I
went on a private jet to Europe
with Tom Cruise and Nicole
Kidman. I was at a convention
for military men weeping and
was standing next to Carl
Brashear on the USS Arizona.
(Brashear was the first black
U.S. Navy Master Diver in the
early 1950's. He passed away in
July of 2006. Gooding played
him in the movie Men Of
Honor.); I was in Bulgaria with
Ray Liotta shooting Hero
Wanted. It was amazing!
Culturally it was something I
had never been exposed to my
entire life, so I've had so many
experiences that I don't know
which one is my favorite."
If Gooding had not been an actor, what
else could he have been? He ponders and
says, "Well, something to do with people.
Either a defense attorney or psychiatrist or
something I think." Whatever he could have
been is a moot point now because the silver
screen is and will be his office work place
for many years to come.

who is also the Program

AKA the late Notorious B.I G

BLACK AFRIKAN HAIR
AND THE INSANITY OF
THE BLACK BLONDE
PSYCH! This is NOT a
beauty or hair styling book. It
deals with the ancient history,
physiology and the divine
functions of natural nappy,
kinky Black Afrikan Hair.
This book is the mother of
mothers on the subject of

settle the shame, self hate and
debate issues about nappy

Daddy Day Camp stars
Cuba Gooding, Jr., Lochlyn
Munro, Richard Gant,
Tamala Jones, Paul Rae,
Joshua McLerran, Spencir
Bridges and Brian Doyle-
Murray. It was directed by
This is a good family film
except for the parts where
children verbally insult adults
and physically assault them
by throwing things at them
and in once scene punching a
male camp director in his pri-
vates. This is child abuse in
reverse. Cuba Gooding, Jr. as
Charlie Hinton and Paul Rae
as Phil Ryerson have excel-
lent chemistry with the chil-
dren all throughout the entire
film. The children have their
little life issues which were
pretty believable and the
answers to them were things
that could happen in real life.
Richard Gant plays the hard
nose retired military Col
Buck Hinton (Gooding's
screen dad) and these two
have a father/son, love/hate
issue thing going which
keeps the film interesting.
Tamala Jones looks good (as
always) and her role as and
understanding mom fits the
groove of the film well. Fred
