Officer Raped in
Jail House Library
Jonathan Tave, 26
to go in and out
She is a female corrections officer who has been
working in the field for 29 years. She felt that
working with the inmates as a certified paralegal
to help them with their legal concerns was not
only helpful but appreciated by the 'brothers.'
Therefore, she was not prepared for the attack she
encountered by a prisoner inside the jail's law
library on Thursday.
The female officer was in the library alone,
armed with the standard cuffs, pepper spray, and
radio. It is understood that the two met to do case
research. Officers and inmates are normally free
of the library, according to Jail Officer See A-7
Teen killed in acci-
dent in stolen car
He was 14-years-old and attended Landon Middle
School and was in 8th grade.
Patrick Holmes and possibly three other males
had apparently stolen a vehicle. Holmes was the
driver and lost control of the car, crashing into a
home on Redmond Avenue. The stolen vehicle
slid under the house and the driver was killed. He
was not wearing a seat belt. When the police and
Patrick Holmes, 14 firefighters arrived at the scene, no other passen-
gers were present and no one in the house was injured. It took the fire-
fighters several hours to remove the car and Holmes as the firefighters
feared problems with the foundation.
It is believed by the Sheriff's office that Holmes and his passengers
were involved in a robbery that had occurred earlier.
A 16-year-old has been arrested as a suspect in the incident and oth-
ers are sought.
According to sources, this was not Holmes' first incident with the
law. An investigation is still underway.
Miss Texas and Now Miss USA, 2008
Crystie Stewart, was crowned Miss USA
this past weekend.
The 26-year-old is from Missouri City,
Texas and is an entrepreneur. She runs a
party-planning and motivational speaking
company and is also a professional model.
Crystie edged out Miss Mississippi, Leah
Laviano and Tiffany Andrade, Miss New
Jersey for the title.
Crystie Stewart said she will utilize her
Crystie Stewart knowledge and training that she uses in her
very successful business to spread her mes-
sage of self-improvement to young women. Winning this title is a
dream because she is eagar to travel.
Stewart will compete in the 2008 Miss Universe pageant in Vietnam
State Attorney on Police Shootings
State Attorney Shorstein addressed the presto
Wednesday regarding the number of police shootings
that have occurred in Jacksonville. He stated that he has
investigated all of the shootings since he became state
attorney and have found them all to be "justified."
State Attorney, However, he felt it should be explained that justified
Harry Shorstein does not necessarily mean "justifiable."
When an officer shoots to protect himself, it is under-
stood but there is a difference, said Mr. Shorstein. He wanted to make
it clear that his office does not condone unjustifiable police shooting.
For this reason, some shootings, even though found to be justified, are
still under investigation.
Many citizens feel a citizens police review board would help clear this
question and would be helpful to the Sheriff's Office.
Florida Star's 57th,
The Florida Star celebrated its 57th birthday at the ball-
park as the Nation honored baseball great, Jackie
Robinson. Ms. McLaughlin threw the 'ceremonial, first
ball' during the event. See pages Bl, B4 and A7.
Glynn Co. Jail
L- Brunswick native, Tyrone
"Tony" Green was arrested
on March 13 and was being
held at the Glynn County
y N Detention Center. Prior to
his arrest, he had suffered a
heart attack but apparently
Tyrone Carl Green, did not make it known to
35, Glynn County, the jailers when he com-
Georgia plained of chest pains. The
facility took him to the hos-
pital but he was later released with a diagnosis
of gas. When he returned, while standing by a
window, he suffered a fatal heart attack,
according to sources talking with his mother.

Star Jones Tells Bill O'Reilly There Will
be no lynching party for Michelle Obama
It was noted by Star Jones that Bill O'Reilly said, "I don't want to go on a lynching party against
Michelle Obama unless there's evidence, hard facts, that say this is how the woman really feels.
- that this is a bad country or a flawed nation, whatever then that's legit. We'll track it down."
Star said that O'Reilly claims his com-
ments were taken out of context. She
further stated that when you put the
words 'lynch and party' together in the
same sentence with reference to a black
woman; in this case, Michelle Obama,
there is no spin zone. It is racist, unac-
ceptable and inappropriate on every
level. She later added, "Be clear Bill
O'Reilly: there will be no lynch party
for that black woman and this black
woman assures you that if you come for
her, you come for all of us."

Glynn Residents Can Lose Property
Those residents of Glynn County who are against
the jail expansion lost their battle.
The commissioners voted in favor of forcing prop-
erty owners to sell to the county in order for the jail
to be expanded in the area. They said this is less
costly than the other two options for the tax payers .
The NAACP, Brunswick does not agree.
Goal Register 7500 Students
The Supervisor of Elections are set for a county
wide voters registration drive to be held April 22
through 24. Over 55 public and private high
schools, colleges and universities are participating.
This year's goal is to pre-register and register 7500
students who are 16 and older. The State of Florida
recently modified the voter registration law which
now allows 16 years old with valid Florida Driver
License to pre-register.
Offenders to Get 'Second Chance'
Congress, after five years, passed the Second
Chance Act to deter the recidivism rate that is so
disparate among Black inmates.
The new bill will allow money, job opportunities
and training for released inmates.
President Bush said this bill was important to him
because he knows how hard it was for him to over-
come his alcoholism.
Black Caucus members Scott, Jones and Conyers
witnessed the signing of the bill.

"Stop not feeling anything when things go wrong"
Dr. Bill Cosby is a funny person. Dr. Cosby is a very, very
funny person! He is also very concerned about the state of our
children. So it was a perfect match to have Dr. Cosby perform
for Florida Community College at Jacksonville and to take the
time between performances to speak with FCCJ supporters at
the VIP Reception.

shirt, Dr. Bill Cosby spoke to the VIP gathering for an extend-
ed period. Upon his arrival, everyone stood to applaud (many
holding Dr. Cosby's latest book, Come on People) and wel-
come him. Dr. Cosby graciously asked that everyone sit down.
Finding that there were those still having difficulty seeing him
in the small area, Dr. Bill Cosby stood in a chair to be sure
everyone could both see and hear him.
Dr. Cosby is very concerned about children and he chal-
lenged each of us to do something to help children who may
have gotten off track, get back on track. "Stop not feeling any-
thing when things go wrong as we are connected to these
things. We accept inappropriate behavior of children. We must
speak up", stated Dr. Bill Cosby. He lamented that the teenage
pregnancy rate is generational and we are finding 45 year old
In the Come on People book, written by Dr. Bill Cosby
along with his long time friend and colleague Alvin F.
Poussaint, M.D, Thomas Nelson's review states, "In communi-
ties across the country, Bill Cosby has publicly drawn attention
in the last three years to the dire crises in black America: 50
percent high-school drop-out rates, too many children born to
teen-aged parents, children whose parents are ill-equipped and
disinterested in parenting. These problems have been ferment-
ing for years, but few have called them out with as much force,
determination, passion, and credibility as has Dr. Cosby.
Come on People is built around the themes of Cosby's pop-
ular call-out sessions, in which he has challenged people in
towns and cities across America to reclaim and restore their
families and communities.
Cosby and Poussaint share their vision for strengthening
America by addressing the crisis of people frozen in feelings of
low self-esteem, abandonment, anger, fearfulness, sadness, and
feelings of being used, undefended, and unprotected. By
addressing these issues and providing tools to deal with them,
Cosby and Poussaint help empower people to make the daunt-
ing transition from victims to victors.
At times challenging, at times inspirational, Come On
People provides real-life examples of the problems plaguing
communities throughout America and the time-tested solutions
that can help turn things around.
Suffused with humor and moral clarity, Come On People
challenges readers to: Engage in political activism; take their
neighborhoods back; become purposeful and effective parents;
get actively engaged in shaping the lives of their children;
take care of their physical and emotional health; encourage
their families toward higher education; and think entrepreneuri-
ally about employment and economic advancement."
Thanks to FCCJ the First Coast was indeed privileged to
again have Dr. Bill Cosby share his realistic wisdom about our
times and the need to save our children!

Officer Continued from A-1
Chief Tara Wildes. According to jail policies Jonathan Tave should have been
searched. It is possible that the weapon was small enough to not have been found in
Jonathan Tave is 26-years-old, 6'3", about 200 pounds and muscular. He has been
incarcerated since 2005 on charges that he committed a murder and more.
The victim reported that she was working in the library when she was suddenly
attacked by Jonathan Tave. He grabbed her arm and put a handmade knife up against
her throat. He threatened to cut her throat if she did not calm down and submit to
his wishes. She attempted to call for assistance on her radio but he pulled it, away
from her and then pulled her across the room into one of the library isles. There, he
pulled off all of her clothes, ripping her uniform shirt at the time. He then forced her
to1 lie on the floor while he sexually battered her through male/female intercourse as
-he held the knife to her throat.: Afterwards, he forced her to perform oral sex and told
'her he would kill her if she did not do it right.
During the oral sex, she was able to get to her pepper spray in an attempt to defend
herself but he was able to take it away from her and throw it on the floor. At this
point, she was able to reach into her pants and get her cell phone in another attempt
to call for help. Tave snatched the phone and broke it. In anger, he began hitting her
on the face and body with his fists.
When he was done, he dressed her in her uniform and told her to relax. Somehow,
he decided that was not enough and told the victim he had nothing to loose and that
he was going to hurt her like the white people had hurt him. It is not understood what
'white people' had to do with his actions but, he drAgged her to the window area of
the room and again pulled off her clothes. This time, he made her get on her knees
and forced penile/vaginal intercourse on her again. He again forced her to perform
oral sex on him while holding knife against her throat and continued to beat her on
the face with his fists. After he was finished, he dressed her again and made her give

him her jail keys. As she dressed, he placed the spray and knife inside a desk draw-
er in an attempt to hide them. He also tried to clean up the area with paper towels.
The victim and the suspect then both left the library, going separate ways. She went
to the control room to report what had happened. Tave we to the Mezzanine floor
where he was apprehended. She said he held her in the li bary for more than an hour.
Tave's original charges are for arson; armed robbery/possession of a firearm by a
felon and a jail battery. He was later charged for the murder of Cedric Henry who
died in 2005. He now faces multiple other charges after the assault Thursday.
About 80 of Jacksonville's correction officers are female and there are about 2,500
inmates. Even though this is the first time a correctional officer has been raped, it
points out the need for change.
Issues and Answers
As The Florida Star Celebrate its 57th Birthday, we are pro-
viding a reprint article that was published by The Florida
Star in August, 1988.
I & A--What is the most critical problem facing
Black people today?
SINGLETON: We, as Black people in America,
are now facing a most crucial period in our history
and existence. Our children the real hope of the
race are being reared in a nation where the actions
and beliefs of the people are often irrational and
insensitive. Furthermore, our children are growing
toward maturity in a nation governed by "would
be" leaders who have apparently been granted
Dr. Roy Singleton, Jr. sanction by inept voters to deny children and adults
their inalienable civil and human rights rights that
would certainly include obtaining the type of public education and training that
would allow them to become emotionally and economically secure adults.
I & A- What conditions do you feel threaten Black children's security?
SINGLETON: This security is indeed threatened by the type of environment in
which our children are growing up. It is an environment marked by severe social
injustice and high crime rates. It is an environment where children are being persuad-
ed to use and sell illegal drugs. Furthermore, the human engineers of the environ-
ment often allow our children to be subjected to abuse and neglect by adults. The
Black Caucus of the National Education Association argues that our children are also
confronted with limited support systems, racial discrimination, and relentless pover-
I & A-How would you put the problem in perspective and what would you like
done to solve it?
SINGLETON: To be solved at once, according to the Caucus, are the problems
associated with financially poor and segregated [read as low-performing schools]
and the high dropout rate of Black children. In attempting to put all of this in prop-
er perspective so that our children can indeed be saved, I must acknowledge the exis-
tence of despicable social, economic and political policies and practices that have
been with us since the beginning of time. My knowledge of history, moreover, now
allows me to predict that these problems, in some form, will be with us always. This
is not to say, however, that we must sit back and "chill" as we watch the children of
our race be destroyed by our apathy and our lack of vision and energy.
I &A-Is the urgency you feel reflected elsewhere in our society?
SINGLETON: The urgency of the problem is reflected everywhere in.our daily
lives. Newspapers and magazines report daily on the problems of high school
dropouts, teenage crime, and teenage pregnancy. The most recent issue of EBONY,
a magazine designed to inform the public of Black life and culture, uses the theme
"Save the Children" to present salient issues, problems, resolutions, and solutions
pertinent to the welfare and education of Black children.
I & A-As Black parents, what is the first step to take in saving our children?
SINGLETON: As parents of Black children, we must realize and accept the fact
that our children, to a large extent, are being miseducated in ineffective educational
systems. They are being miseducated in schools where teachers and counselors,
through often subtle means, actually encourage students to leave school before grad-
uation. This miseducation also manifests itself in young high school graduates who
can barely read, write, and calculate.
I & A-What would you say to the children?
SINGLETON: To our children, we must say: "A good education is important
because it can help you have a more or less comfortable life in America." It has
always bothered me to hear adults say, "You 1 had better get an education." It is
much better to tell children that they need certain skills to be successful. They need
to know how to read well enough to analyze, synthesize and critically evaluate infor-
mation and ideas. They must know how to communicate both orally and in writing
so that the message they wish to transmit is received and acted up as it should be.
They must know how to calculate in orders to receive the best goods and services for
the money they must pay.
I & A-Many Black children today are reared in single-family homes.* Do you see
this as a hindrance?,
SINGLETON: It is interesting to note that most of them come from single-family
homes. I do not mean to imply that we need more single-family homes. I am sim-
ply saying that if there is only one parent present in a family to help guide, help,
encourage and love the children, let this not be a hindrance; but let it be a battle cry
to march on and press on.

SHOULD WE STAY IN OR PULL OUT?
Get your mind out of the gutter because I'm referring to
whether or not United States military troops should stay in Iraq.
Well, many people feel that America's soldiers should stay in
Iraq "until we win the war".
I don't think there is a "wdr". The President of the United
States ordered troops to invade Iraq for reasons still unknown to
me. There were no weapons of mass destruction, there was no
threat to the United States or to the countries neighboring Iraq and there was no link to Osama
Bin Laden's terrorists.
Recently, Gen. David H. Petraeus, the senior U.S. commander in Iraq, warned Congress that
progress there was "fragile and reversible". Perhaps the General should have said that life in Iraq
now is worse than it was when Saddam Hussein led the country.
I want my people to understand a couple of things: First, there is no way that the United
States can "win" in Iraq. It is impossible for Western nations to win military conflicts that take
place on the ground. So-called guerrilla wars take heart and they take courage. A guerrilla war-
rior might shine your shoes in the morning and cut your throat at night. They may plant a wreath
one day and plant a roadside bomb the next day.
Every country that has invaded Iraq has been eventually run out of the country. I don't have
to name them all but failed invaders go from the Mongols to the British. Every country that came
into Iraq had to run out.
Secondly, although the U.S. is blaming Iran for increased hostilities in Iraq, the Iraqi people
seem to love Iranians.
Can I prove? Yes!
When Bush, Chaney, McCain and other Americans visit Iraq they have to arrive under cover,
in secret, because they fear they may be attacked. We never know top U.S. officials are in Iraq
until they have left the country.
On the other hand Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad can fly right into Bagdhad any
time he pleases and when he arrives, he is treated like a hero. Iraqis even thrown rose petals at
him and sing songs.
Now you tell me, if Iraqis hate Iran and love Americans in Iraq, why do they cheer
Ahmadinejad and boo U.S. political leaders?
I don't see anything wrong with pulling it out, so to speak. An orderly withdrawal from Iraq
will be best for Americans and Iraqis.

Things may not be going according to

Ill about how you react (and how you
don't overreact!). Find a way to slow
down. clear your mind and make a
real etlort to accept things its they are

impact on your world again in posi-

to do? And what do you have to say?
A more sensitive souyou know might
need time to get used to a certain idea
or to absorb your outlook. Give every-
one a chance, especially from Friday
through the weekend.

Life may not be tidy as the week gets
going, and you'll definitely want extra
time to think things through. Keep
your plans low-key, and keep in mind
that change is good! A coworker just
might be able to help in a crucial way
around Wednesday and Thursday.
Perhaps you should pick them up a
treat or offer some kind of trade-off--
but then again, they probably owe you
one. From Friday through the week-
end, you -might think your actions
speak louder than words, but every-
thing's open to interpretation. What's
the clearest way you can convey what
you really want to say?

what it'll do for you. The stars can
direct your attention to what really
matters? Something revives your ide-
alism around Wednesday and
Thursday, and it's a good thing. A dis-
cussion with someone who under-
stands your hopes and even shares a
dream or two can help you bring some
of this energy into reality. And from
Friday through the weekend, think 'out
with the old, in with the new' -- and
recognize that an old issue may be

If you find yourselfon the greenish-with-

grass-is-always-greener effect. If you
were in their shoes, the turf might not look
so lush and inviting. You're more philo-
sophical around Wednesday and
Thursday; you're ready to handle your
own issues and work toward improve-
ments in your own situation. And when it
comes to relationships, you're especially
perceptive from Friday through the week-
end and comfortable enough where you
are to take a good look at Fie other per-
son's perspective. You just might like
what you see!

The really interesting stuff isn't on the
surface as the week gets going. What
are the underlying issues at work?
What's at the core of a relationship?
What do your own emotional depths
tell you? The stars send somethinglike
an electric charge your way around
Wednesday and Thursday. Zap! Others
can see and feel your energy (not to
mention hear how you're telling it like
it is!) -- it's a true time of personal pos-
sibility. From Friday through the
weekend, if you must toot your own
horn call your momi or another big fai

sive about others instead.

looking for, or are you ready for the
next big step on your career path?
Your determination and belief in your-
self (plus a little cosmic help!) make
up what others call 'luck.' Then.
around Wednesday and Thursday, a
calculated risk is one thing, while a
random incautious move is quite
another. Be safe and be smart. Then be

it's work, a relationship or general
angst, you're not an optimist right

be active -- endorphins help! You
ought to be feeling more upbeat
around Wednesday and Thursday, and
a connection you make -- whether of
the 'aha!' type in your mind or with
another person -- helps you see a new

it pays to be more flexible -- like

Variety may be the spice of life, but
there's real satisfaction in focus as the

attention. If you don't give it, be ready
for the consequences. You're mentally

Augment work challenges with a book

sFrom Actual Police Reports
s Did You Hear About?...
SUSPICIOUS PERSONS -An officer was dispatched to a place
of business located in the 6000 block of Morrell Rd. where he met
with the complainant who stated that three black males, Suspect #1
Mr. T.C. and Suspect #2 Mr. P.B. and an unknown male were sell-
ing "bootleg" DVD's. The complainant pointed out the suspect's
vehicle. The officer approached the vehicle and saw Suspect #1 sit-
ting in the front passenger's seat. The officer knocked on the win-
dow of the vehicle and Suspect #1 let down the window. The offi-
cer saw what appeared to be marijuana seeds on his lab and
smelled burnt marijuana coming from his body. The officer looked
further into the car and saw a transparent container in the front
.- ',, seat full of CDs and DVDs and it was partially covered with
S-_ -- clothing. Suspect #1 was detained and while he was being patted
',f- :" down, the officer noticed a baggie of marijuana visible in his left
S.. front pocket. He was arrested and placed into the patrol car. The
car was searched and the CDs and DVDs were confiscated and
the other suspect was taken to the PMB, Economic Crimes, to be
,-4' i,--iV_" /interviewed by detectives. They told the interviewers that they
__l were rappers and that those were tapes that they had recorded of
themselves and was trying to promote them. They said that the
unknown black male was the one selling the counterfeit CDs and DVDs. Both were arrest-
ed and transported to the PDF. The CDs and DVDs were placed
into the evidence room and the vehicle was seized.
BATTERY -An officer was dispatched to the 7100 block of
Welland Rd., in response to an unverified 911 call. While ,
enroute he was advised the call had been updated to a battery. /'
Upon his arrival, he made contact with the victim, Ms. SH who / t \
stated that her live-in boyfriend had battered her. Ms. SH / '\
informed him that the suspect, Mr. SH began an argument with l IhI
her and then began to throw things around the house. Mr. SH -
then picked Mr. SH up and body slammed her into the ground
twice. Ms. SH stated she called 911 and then threw the phone
across the room so he would not hand it up. Mr. SH fled the scene before the officer arrived.
Ms. SH stated he left in a pearl white Cadillac. Ms. SH informed the officer he was possi-
bly headed to W. 45th St. Ms. SH and Mr. SH live together
as if a family. They do not have any children together. The
officer observed the kitchen and living room were in disar-
ray. Ms. SH stated her back and head were sore from the
impact of hitting the floor. Rescue 7 and Engine 36
responded to the scene. Ms. SH informed them she recent-
ly had surgery at a nearby hospital and would like to be
transported there. Prior to leaving, the officer advised Ms.
SH of all her legal rights and remedies. He also advised her
of a safe location. Patrol efforts suspended.
Celebrating 15 years of s
Jackie Robinson's Day At The Ball Park
" Jackle Robinson walked onto Ebbets Field and changed baseball forever. Opening Day 1947 was immediately recognized as a
remarkable e% ent the Xoluntary, peaceful desegregation of a longstanding American institution. It remains one of baseball's, and
America's, seminal moments. That's why each year, at the Ball Park, Jackie Robinson is honored.
Although, his jersey is worn by many on April 15 of each year, the number "42" jersey that Robinson wore was permanently
retired by the Major League Baseball Association on April 15, 1997 at his 50th anniversary debut. No Major League or Minor League
player would ever be assigned this number again. Robinson's jersey symbolizes Pride and Passion for the American Game. An excep-
tion was granted to those who was already wearing the number.
When he retired following the 1956 season, Robinson had won the first
Rookie of the Year Award (later renamed in his honor), been named to six
All-Star teams, and earned a Most Valuable Player Award.
Today, as we reflect on his achievements, we sometimes remember -
Robinson the icon the man who broke the color line and forget what an
extraordinary person he was. At UCLA, Robinson lettered in four sports in
a single year baseball, football, basketball, and track the school's first
Jackie Robinson student to do so. As an Army second lieutenant, he faced a court-martial after
refusing to move to the back of the bus on a military base. After baseball, he
was a successful businessman who tirelessly promoted the cause of civil

career. He then challenged baseball one last time, hoping to "look at that While celebrating at the park this year, the Florida

The Florida Star's 57th Anniversary Celebration
At The Park
Each year on April 15 when the Ball Park honors Jackie
Robinson Day, The Florida Star celebrates at the ball park
since April 15 is also the founding day of The Florida Star.
The Florida Star printed its first issue on April 15, 1951.
The Florida Star has been presented with a number of
awards this year, including the prestigious Onyx Award for
Jacksonville and the State. We are proud that many Florida
and Georgia residents state that they like The Star because it
provides them information that no other media provides and
that if they want to know the 'real truth' they turn to The
Star. It is truly, "the people's choice."
While celebrating at the park this year, The Florida
Star's radio show, Impact (WCGL-AM 1360) covered the
event live. They had as their guest, three Negro League play-
ers, Clyde Golden, Art Hamilton, and Harold "Buster" Hair,
as well as the owner of the Suns, Peter Bragan. The Florida
Star's Editor-In-Chief, Clara McLaughlin interviewed with
Mr. Bragan. He said that his grandfather, who is now 90
years old, played with Jackie Robinson and that they became
very good friends.

Three Negro League Players: Clyde Golden, Art Hamilton, and Rev. Harold "Buster"
The three Negro League players remembered when they played ball with Jackie
Robinson. Although, they never made it in the Major League, they traveled all over the
country playing ball in the Negro League and was just as good. They recalled on several
occasions when they had to sleep in people's homes in the South because they weren't
allowed to utilize hotels. They talked about the good times, and the difficult times. They
stated that "back then players on the Negro League only made $2.50 per day." But, they had
a great love for the sport. That's what kept them going.
The Florida Star thank them and all players of the Negro League for hanging in there
through the hard times, for they are the ones that made it possible for the Black Major
League players of today.
Negro League Player, Clyde Golden, The Florida and Georgia Star Editor-In-Chief Clara
McLaughlin, Negro League Players, Harold "Buster" Hair, and Art Hamilton, Public
Information Officer, Kenneth Jefferson, and owner of the Suns, Peter Bragan.
Public Information Officer Kenneth Jefferson, in uniform, was the host on the radio
show, IMPACT, doing the welcome for the honor of Jackie Robinson, and The Florida Star.
Clara McLaughlin did the honor of throwing the first ball in the game. She"thanked every-
one that supports The Florida and Georgia Star newspaper as she talked about the founding
of it. The Suns owner, Peter Bragon stated that he hope to have a Hank Aaron Day with The
Florida Star and to possibly have Hank Aaron himself to attend. The Florida Star appreciates
doing business with The Suns, enabling them to celebrate their anniversaries in one of the-
suites at the park and for allowing them to participate during the Honor of Jackie Robinson.
