Jazz Singer Losing Home
Even though Congress is presently work-
ing on remedies regarding foreclosures, it
may not be fast enough for jazz vocalist
Ernestine Anderson who has performed with
such greats as Quincy Jones and Ray
Charles. Ms. Anderson is more than
$30,000 behind in payments and penalties,
according to public records.
The 79-year-old singer is counting on
Ernestine Anderson, 79 friends and families to help her raise the
year old jazz singer $45,000 needed to cover the back payments
and taxes. They are also trying to find a way to help her after the July
11 public auction to assist her with the $5,000 monthly payments. Her
monthly income is $1,000 in Social Security funds and her performance
is limited. She apparently borrowed more than $450,000 on the house
that was owed by her parents since 1946.

Georgia Sex Offenders
Challenge Volunteer Ban
Five sex offenders in Georgia filed a lawsuit stating
that the new Georgia law that bans them from volun-
teering at churches robs them of their right to partici-
pate in religious worship. The suit was filed in Rome,
Georgia and states that the law effectively "criminal-
izes fundamental religious activities" since it bars them
from serving as a choir member, secretary, accountant
or any other role with a religious organization. In fact,
they are even denied the ability to help a pastor with
Bible study or preparing a meal in a church kitchen.

The Real Prisoners
At the Saint John the Baptist Day Celebration of the
Most Worshipful Union Grand Lodge Sunday, The
Honorable Judge Lance Day 330 was the keynote
speaker and reminded the congregation that we have
developed a pattern of locking up everything, and do so
because we are America's prisoners. "We are not free,
the criminals are." "We lock up things, including our
cars while we are in them because we are afraid," the
Judge said. "We are their prisoners and they are free."
He elaborated on his message by encouraging the con-
gregation to take back our streets, our communities.
Let them know that we are back in charge, we will no
longer live in fear. We will no longer be prisoners in
our own environment.
The event was held at The Greater El-Beth-El Divine
Holiness Church, Bishop Dr. Lorenzo Hall Sr. 330, pas-
tor. Attending also was The Honorable Anthony (Tony)
Hill, State Senator and City Councilwoman Mia Jones
as well as representatives of the Most Ancient and

Cherokees Still Fighting Against Slave

,Descendants Recognition
In 2007 The Cherokee Nation decided to remove about 2,800 freedmen descendants and other
non-Indians from tribal rolls. Descendancy stems from the 19th Century Dawes Commission
list. To fight the federal lawmakers who disagree with thp Cherokee Nation's decision, the
Nation has put together a public relations campaign since the lawmakers have stated that unless
the Nation recognizes descendants of its former black slaves, they will be denied $300 million
in federal funds.: Such funds are used to pay for health clinics, Head Start, elderly care and hous-
ing assistance. This would put out of work, about 6,000 nation employees. Their campaign
includes two websites discussing the referendum which removed the freedmen descendants.

Many mothers who
experience childbirth are
coached through labor in a
hospital maternity ward
with supportive doctors
and nurses. Their hus-
bands may capture the
birth with a video camera.
After the baby's, bawling
first breaths, mother and
child bond in a joyous
Childbirth is not so joy-
ous for the growing num-
ber of women who give
birth behind bars. It is a
time of humiliation, sad-
ness and separation.
Before, during, and after
delivery, prison mothers
are commonly shackled.
No one is there to take
those first baby pictures.
And the infant may be
whisked away by a social
worker to be given to a
family member to raise, or
if they are less fortunate,
the child goes to foster
care. The mother returns to
an eight foot by 12 foot
prison cell to grieve. The
bond between mother and
child is broken at the
moment of delivery.
There are about 1.2 mil-
lion parents incarcerated

in federal or state prisons
or local jails in the United
States. The number of
mothers in prison grew 88
percent from 1991 to 2002.
While relatively few
women who are incarcerat-
ed give birth behind bars,
about two-thirds of female
inmates are mothers of
minor children. Most
women are in prison for
non-violont offenses, many
of them drug related.
Almost 60 percent of
mothers in state prisons
lived with their children at
the time they entered
prison. With few proce-
dures or policies that
require or facilitate main-
taining relationships
between mothers and their
children, the criminal jus-.
tice system often breaks
families apart. The majori-
ty of incarcerated parents
reside more than 100 miles
from their homes. While in
prison, many mothers only
rarely see their children
and are not involved in
decisions about their wel-
fare nor do they get any
help with parenting. Some
lose track of their children

Mothers Rocking the Prison Cradle

By Marian WriGht EDelman
presiDent of the ChilDren's Pefense Flin

Almost 80 percent of the
children with a mother in
prison live with a grand-
parent or other relative
who generally receives lit-
tle public support. About
10 percent of children with
incarcerated mothers are in
foster care, and in some
cases they have entered
care before the parent was
locked up. But foster care
can result in a parent los-
ing the rights to their chil-
dren permanently because
federal law requires, with
-limited exceptions, that a
state file a petition to ter-
minate parental rights
when a child has been in
foster care for 15 out of 22
months. The timetable is
especially problematic
given that the average time
a mother in state prison is
expected to serve is 49
Children can be deeply
traumatized by the incar-
ceration of their mothers.
They may feel abandoned
or blame themselves for
their parent being taken
away. Even young children
may feel the stigma and
shame of having a parent
behind bars. Studies have
documented that children
of incarcerated parents are
prone to emotional and
behavioral difficulties,
poor academic perform-


ance, juvenile delinquen-
cy, substance abuse and
are more likely to become
involved in the criminal
justice system themselves.
The majority of the 1.5,
million children of incar-
cerated parents are Black
or Latino.
The bond between a
mother behind bars and her
children does not have to
be severed. The Federal
Bureau of Prisons is in the
process of revising its pol-
icy on restraining mothers
during labor, delivery, and
post-delivery. California,
Illinois and Vermont are
the only states that cur-
rently regulate the use of
restraints on pregnant
women. Other state pris-
ons and jails need to fol-
low suit.
Some states have taken
other steps to revamp their
approaches to dealing with
female offenders. For
example, California is
moving women from large
remote prisons to smaller,
community-based centers
allowing more frequent
mother-child visits.
California, Indiana,
Nebraska, New York, Ohio
and Washington are among
the states that have estab-
lished prison nurseries.

The Martin and Morris Company Records date from ca. 1930
to 1985 and document a neglected part of the American music his-
torical record. The collection is particularly important because of
the company's contributions to the field of Gospel music.
According to Horace Boyer (in We'll Understand It Better....),
Martin and Morris Music Company was the only music house that
would publish compositions by others than themselves during the
heyday years of Gospel music (ca.1945-1965). From the collec-
tion it can be noted also that Gospel music in the United States
was a grass roots activity. Insight as to its development and distri-
bution can be gained through study of the firm's records.
Some of the more well known musicians whose compositions
were published by Martin and Morris include: William H.
Brewster, Dorothy Love Coates, Lucie Campbell, Alex Bradford,
Sam Cook, and Raymond Rasberry. In addition to the noted musi-
cians, several lesser-known artists and members of churches and
pastorates from around the nation were published by Martin and
Morris and their music was distributed throughout the country
\and around the world.

/ Clara Ward ~- Born in Philadelphia on August
21, 1924, Clara Ward is widely
acclaimed as one of the greatest
soloists in gospel history. Touring
the country with her backing group,
the Ward Singers, she propelled
gospel out of the church and into the
nightclub, where glitzy costumes
and pop-style performance gave the
music glamour and commercial
appeal never seen before in gospel
music. With the strong promotional
savvy of her mother Gertrude who
handled the business side of things,
and her sister Willa on the piano, the
troupe rose from obscurity to
become one of the top attractions on the church circuit in the late
1940s. They soon brought on two new performers, Henrietta
Waddy and Marion Williams, a Miami teen whose powerhouse
voice became the trademark sound of the group. With Williams
installed as soloist, the Wards hit their creative peak, releasing
such masterful hits as "Surely God Is Able" and "Packin' Up."
The Wards were prosperous through the 1950s, touring regular-
ly with the Reverend C.L. Franklin of Detroit; the father of Aretha
Franklin-herself an admitted disciple of Clara Ward. In 1958 the
bottom fell out of the church music circuit and a revamped incar-
nation of the group took up the nightclub circuit, playing Las
Vegas and even Disneyland, much to the dismay of gospel tradi-
tionalists who were already skeptical of their flamboyant per-
formance style. The group continued touring throughout the
1960s, until Ward's declining health forced her into retirement.
She died January 16, 1973.

/ Rev. James Cleveland 1931-1991
born in Chicago, Illinois on
December 5, 1931 to Rpsie Lee
O and Benjamin Cleveland during
the height of the greatest depres-
sion. James' grandmother
attended Pilgrim Baptist Church,
where she was a member of the
choir. James had no choice but
to attend these rehearsals with
his grandmother and found him-
self sitting through these choir
rehearsals bored stiff.! Eventually James decided he would
conquer the boredom through attempting to sing along with the
choir. It was in one of these rehearsal that James' singing was
noticed and he was made choir mascot. The choir director,
Thomas A. Dorsey wrote a song for him which launched- the
career of what was the be a long line of performances. Through
Dorsey's teaching and directing young James was influenced in a
great way.

/ Mary Mary ~ In 2000, sisters Erica and Tina
earned immedi-
ate respect and
success with
Mary Mary's
platinum debut

Thankful. The joyful dancefloor-filling hit single "Shackles" put
them at the top of the charts across the world and then the girls
followed it up with the 2002's Incredible album. Now, after a
short break, Mary Mary returns with the brilliant third album,
packed with uplifting lyrics, distinctive vocals and unforgettable
songs. Fans who have been eagerly waiting for new music from
the pair are going to be blown away by Mary Mary's third album
which is packed with highlights, including the groove-driven
"Heaven," with its upbeat positive message. Erica says, "ultimate-
ly, we're just two girls from California who love God and are glad
About the talent God's given us." J

Almighty God, Father of all mercies and giver of all
comfort: Deal graciously, we pray thee,with
those who mourn, that casting every care on thee,
they may know the consolation of thy love, ;
through Jesus Christ our LORD.

Dr. Mattie Juliet Moss Clark remains one of the most influential
and important figures in the history and progression-of gospel music
as well as in the history of the Church of God in Christ. Her legacy
has created and helped to shape some of the most successful gospel
artists including Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Donald Vails,
Commissioned, Esther Smith, Keith Pringle, Rev. Rance Allen, the
late Rev. James Moore and her own daughters, The Clark Sisters. She
taught that one should never try to sing, preach, teach, or reach with-
out prayer and that Christ must always be the center of attraction and
the center of one's life.
She began playing the piano at age six. By 12, she became the
musician for mother's services at the Church of Christ and Prayer. She
attended Selma Univ. and received training in classical music and
choral singing.
She moved to Detroit in 1947 to be with her sister Sybil Burke and
became a member of Greater Love Tabernacle Church of God in
Christ. There, under the leadership of Bishop W. Rimson, she was
baptized in the Holy Ghost and subsequently became the Minister of
Music. She served an historic tenure as Minister of Music for both
Southwest Michigan Jurisdiction and Bailey Temple Church of God
in Christ, under Bishop John Seth Bailey. Soon she was in demand to
train choirs at churches throughout the brotherhood of COGIC.
In 1958, she recorded "Going to Heaven to Meet the King," with
the Southwest Michigan State Choir, becoming the first person to
commit the sounds of a choir to record. She was also the first person
to separate vocal parts into soprano, alto and tenor. She received three
gold albums with the Southwest Michigan State Choir, and went on to
write and arrange hundreds of songs and record over 50 albums.
As her health declined, Dr. Clark never lost the fire and passion for
her mission. An accomplished musician, singer, arranger, composer,
leader, director, teacher, and exemplary woman of God, Dr. Clark died
on Sept. 22, 1994. The legacy of Dr. Mattie Moss Clark is one that will
stand as a testament to the anointing of God and his gifts, what she
accomplished is matched by only a handful of anointed vessels,
cementing her standing as the true "First Lady" of gospel music.

Songstress Mica Paris Bringing

R&B on the BBC

0* a *

Get online @:

American fans of
Mica Paris remember her
debut album So Good
with the hit "My One
Temptation" from the
late 1980s.
Although she hasn't
had a single become that
popular on the charts in
the U.S. since then, she
has been hard at work in
the industry with many
other projects including
subsequent albums, per-
forming in theatre, telev-
sion and hosting one of
England's most popular
radio. programs on for
the British Broadcasting
Corporation (BBC).
She was born
Michelle Wallen on April
., ~969 in London.
Gospel united the Wallen
family and inspired the
careers of both Mica and
her younger sister
Alyesha (who enjoyed
modest success as a. solo
artist herself).
She grew up singing
in her grandparents'
church and by her mid
teens was making regu-
lar appearances with
'The Spirit of Watts'
* gospel choir. (with
0 whom she featured on
9 the 1985 Gospel Joy EP).
0 Gospel would infiltrate
Paris's career as no other
British contemporary
' female soul vocalist; it
* would influence the
quality of her vocal tone
9 and play a part in the
material she would write
and record.
. "My One
* Temptation," the lead
single from her debut
0 album was the mid-
tempo hors-d'oeuvre of
material to come. The
0 album highlighted
* Paris's vocal and person-
* al perspectives
. Paris's duet with

acclaimed singer will
Downing was a collabo-
ration that illustrated her
professional far-sighted-
ness and vocal compe-
tence (they covered
Donny Hathaway &
Roberta Flack's "Where
Is The Love?"). In just
one album Paris was
debutant, duet partner
and co-writer.
Just a year later, the
album's successor,
Contribution (1990) was
released. It featured the
track If I Love U 2 Nite,
written for Paris by
Prince, vyho during a
London after-party per-
formance handed her his
microphone in the crowd
while he accompanied
her on guitar, on stage.
Paris created
arguably- the greatest
British street soul track
in "I Should Have
Known Better" in 1990.
It was issued on the b-
side to I Never Felt Like
This Before, which was
promptly embraced as a
club classic. Ray
Hayden, an east London-
based producer and
singer-songwriter, also
teamed up with Paris to

make the most of her
gospel background and
romanticism. They
recorded three tracks: the
ballad Waiting For The
Morning, the haunting
gospel Bless The Day
and the duet One on One
Although she remains
behind the microphone,
Paris moved out of the
recording booth and into
the broadcaster's chair in
2002 when she hosted
the acclaimed 'Soul
Solutions' programme on
BBC Radio 2 and narrat-
ing several music docu-
mentaries for the station.
She is currently co-
host in the consumer
-style programme, What
Not to Wear for BBC tel-
On October 1, 2007,
Paris released a semi-
autobiographical book'

Mike Myers, Major Talent, Cordial

It is very rare that
a major film star will
actually take the time
to speak to "every"
single press rep on
the red carpet at their
film's premiere.
Despite the fact that
the studios invite
tons of the press core
to be on the red car-
pet to make it look
good to the public,
most of us (especially
us of color who are
usually placed at the
end 'hood section" of
the line), never actu-
ally get to speak to
the star.- I usually do
my interviews one-
on-one at the press
junkets and private
photo shoots then get
what I can at the pre-
miere. In the case of
the LOVE GURU pre-
miere, the film's star
Mike Myers won
everybody's praise

pulling on the star to
leave the carpet half
way down (after they
have spoken with the
major entertainment
shows) to get into the
theater for the movie
to start. Myers would
not allow that to hap-
pen. More so-called
stars should take
note. As a result mil-'
lions more will read
about him in the
smaller markets.

Crime Stories Continued from A-1
Man Continued from A-1
According to family and reports, Jesse Prindle Jr.'s family stated that the 68-year-
old had written a letter that had been left at the home Friday. In the letter, Prindle
showed evidence of distress because of the long-running custody battle with Kai's
mother who wanted her first and only child with her. When Kai and his father moved
to Jacksonville after Katrina, Ms. Farve moved to Mississippi. However, she had
come to Jacksonville to gain custody of her son since, according to Prindle's other
children, a New Orleans judge had granted her custody of Kai, at least for the sum-
mer. Therefore, in Prindle's letter, he stated: "I cannot tell him he has to go back to
New Orleans, so now my back is against the wall. I have to do something that is
wrong but is horrible." Even though the couple never married, they have been fight-
ing for custody of their son since 2002. Now, the families have started a custody
fight and the Prindle's feel that Kai should stay in the environment he knows rather
than move to an unfamiliar area. According to sources, the judge has ordered Kai to
remain in Jacksonville until a custody decision is made..

Mayor of Lancaster, Texas

Get What You Want In 30 Minutes
Six Tips For A Successful Life
San Francisco, CA- "People who don't set goals wind up asking, 'How come I never got what
I wanted out of life?'" Those are the words of Theodore Carl Soderberg, author of the new book
"Uncharted Waters." Soderberg isn't just a successful author. He has two honorable discharges
from the United States Navy, has been on the silver screen in Basic Instinct and the Rock, has made
a small fortune selling exotic cars, and has toured the world with the merchant marines.
How has he achieved every dream he has ever wanted? "Setting goals. That really has been the
secret of everything."
Here are six tips to earn a successful life one half hour at a time:

1. Identify What You Want- And When You Want It
"Figuring out your dream can be the hardest part," says Soderberg. "So if you can't be specif-
ic, that's fine." You don't need to have'a whole plan in place, says Soderberg. You just need a firm
idea in your mind of what you want and'a solid idea of when you want it by.

2. Schedule 30 Minutes For Your Goal Every Day
Set aside a half hour every day to do something to get closer to your dream. Every day you
build on the progress you made the day before. "You don't expect to do the whole thing in a day
or in a week but a little bit every day, that really is the key to being successful."

3. Make Goal Setting A Lifestyle,
"The key here," says Soderberg, "Is to make sure it's at the same time every day." If your 'goal
time' becomes part of your daily routine you'll be less likely to blow it off. Your scheduled goal
time with yourself is as important as any commitment you'd make to someone else. You wouldn't
dream of blowing off a half hour meeting with your boss make 30 minutes with yourself just as
much of a priority.

4. Divide Your Goal Into Bite Sized Pieces And Tackle Them One At A Time
You can't expect to reach your goal without accomplishing the smaller steps building up to that
success. "If your working on a big dream, break it down into little bite sized dreams along the

5. Congratulate Yourself For Each Step You Complete
Half of keeping motivated is remembering what you are working toward the other half is
acknowledging yourself for the work you've already done. Soderberg insists you pat yourself on
the back at least once a month. "If that means buying yourself a flat screen or just nodding to your-
self in the mirror, that's up to you.",
6. Finish Up COne Goal And Get Ready To Tackle A New One
At some point you'll accomplish whatever goal you've set out to achieve. So why stop now? If you
stop dreaming of new goals your life will get boring again. Build on the goal you've achieved,
or write down a whole new adventure.

Investing 30 minutes a day in your future can-change your life. A few months from now you
could be thinner. Maybe you could have a retirement plan in place. Maybe your life story could
be written. It all comes down to deciding what you want out of life and taking the action to make
it happen. "Once you have the dedication, and the half hour the only question is: what do you
want to achieve?"

Did You Hear About?...

OKAY, MAN OR WOMAN? An officer
was called to a hotel where a witness
observed a person soliciting sex. When the
officer arrived, he witnessed the conversation
between the suspect and the buyer. The sus- ht
pect was taken to the JPDF and booked for .
prostitution. After booking the suspect into u ,
the women's jail, the suspect told the book-
ing officer that he was not a she, but is a man
and would like to go to the men's side. When
the officer picked up the suspect, he wasa
wearing women's clothing and appeared to
be female. The suspect demanded that he goes to the male side, but the offi-
cers did not believe the seemingly female was telling the truth. The suspect
had to start talking in his normal male voice before the officers agreed that it
was a male after all. The suspect was then taken to the proper cell of his gen-

OKAY, WHO HIT WHO? An officer was dispatched to the 1000 block of
Prince St. in reference to a hit and run of a parked car. The owner of the vehi-
cle called because she heard a loud bang in the early morning and ran to the
door where she noticed her green colored car that was parked out front had
been hit and damaged. When she got to the door ethe other vehicle that had hit
it and fled from the scene. The police took the report. Later that morning, a

Albany, stating that someone had ran up
into his yard and hit his truck damaging it.
When the police went to observe the dam-
age and to write up the report, he noticed
that there were no tire tracks where anoth-
er vehicle would have drove up to his
truck to damage it. He noticed that his
vehicle had green paint on it. The same
color green of the vehicle that he wit-
nessed earlier and he also noticed a trail of
radiator fluid on the ground that he fol-
lowed around to Prince St. leading up to
a report on earlier that morning. The victim

in this case has become the suspect. The police ran his license and found out
that his license had been suspended, and he had no insurance.

PLEASE STOP YOUR HARASSMENTS -An officer was dispatched to

Upon his arrival, he met with the victim, Ms. AS. She stated that she use to
be friends with the suspect Ms. NJ. She stated that she started dating Ms. NJ's
brother and every since then the suspect Ms. NJ has been harassing her. Ms.
AS stated that in the month of June she sent her several harassing text mes-
sages. The officer observed the messages and agreed they were all degrading
messages towards Ms. AS. The victim
stated that she has replied to Ms. NJ's
messages asking her to stop, but she
continues to send them. The officer
gave Ms. AS a State Attorney's card,
with instructions on how to pursue
with prosecution.

STUFF an officer was dispatched to *.
the 2100 block of James Hail Dr. in
reference to an assault. Upon his
arrival, he met with the victim Ms. AS
who reported her former boyfriend,
Mr. AB, suspect, choked her and punched her in the face. Ms. AS reported she
and Mr. AB ended their nearly two year relationship approximately three
months ago, but stated she was 5 months pregnant with his child. The officer
did not notice any injuries from the altercation. The victim stated that the sus-
pect came to her apartment and wanted to talk with her about "some he-said,

had been cheating on him during their relationship. Ms. AS stated that she
told Mr. AB that the allegations were untrue and that she didn't want to talk
about them. She stated that's when she began to walk away and he grabbed
her arm and pulled her back and punched her in the face several times and
choked her to the point that she could no longer breathe. There were two chil-

occurred. The officer attempted to
speak with the oldest child, however, he
appeared to have a speech impediment
and was unable to understand his state-

Suns Rally Early, Hang On Late For Thursday Win
By: J.P. Shadrick
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. After scoring four runs in the second inning, the Jacksonville Suns
(38-41, 5-4) held off a pesky Chattanooga Lookouts (40-39, 3-6) by trading late runs in a 6-4
Thursday night victory in front of 7,898 at the Baseball Grounds.
The Suns have won three straight games for the first time since winning four in a row from May
13 through May 16. In addition, it is the first three-game win streak against an opponent in a single
series since taking the final three of a set against the Tennessee Smokies May 2-4.
Jacksonville opened the scoring in the second inning against Chattanooga ace Ben Jukich. Lucas
May led off with a double while Shane Justis later recorded a single with one out. Adam Godwin
next singled home May for a 1-0 lead. With runners on first and third base, pitcher B.J. LaMura bunt-
ed toward the mound, and after fielding and looking the runner back to third, Jukich pulled the first
baseman off the bag with his throw to load the bases. James Tomlin next grounded a ball to third
baseman Eric Eymann, who stepped on third for a force out, but threw wildly past first base, allow-
ing Shane Justis to score for a 2-0 lead. Ivan DeJesus, Jr. next singled home LaMura and Tomlin
before being thrown out at second to end the inning with a 4-0 Suns advantage.
The Lookouts countered against Suns starter B.J. LaMura in the third inning as Tonys Gutierrez
hit a sacrifice fly to right field to plate pitcher Ben Jukich, cutting the Suns lead to 4-1.
Chattanooga scored another run against LaMura in the sixth inning on Chris Valaika's fifth
homerun of the season, a solo blast that further cut the Suns lead to 4-2. Jacksonville answered in the
bottom of the inning against Lookouts reliever Lee Tabor as a James Tomlin groundout scored Adam
Godwin for a 5-2 lead.
LaMura left after allowing two runs on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts over six
innings, making way for reliever Danny Muegge in the seventh. With one out, the next three
Lookouts singled to load the bases before a Sean Henry single scored Chris Denove to trim the deficit
to 5-3. The Suns again countered right away in the bottom of the inning as Mark Bellhorn smashed
his fifth homerun, a solo shot that landed on Georgia Street, opening a 6-3 advantage.
Chattanooga ended the scoring in the ninth inning against Suns closer Jacobo Meque, as Craig
Tatum drove home Cody Strait for a 6-4 final score.
B.J. LaMura (2-2) picked up the win for the Suns while Ben Jukich (7-3) fell in the loss for the
Lookouts. Jacobo Meque (1) saved the game for the Suns.
Jacksonville RH Jesus Rodriguez makes his Suns debut Friday night against Chattanooga RH
Sam LeCure at 7:05 p.m. in the fourth game of the series at the Baseball Grounds. The first 3,000
fans will receive a team baseball card set of the 2008 Suns, sponsored by Jacksonville Sports Cards,
CBS 47 and 99.1 WQIK. Elvis Himselvis will perform during the game and after the game fans can
enjoy Friday Family Fireworks, sponsored by NAPAAuto Parts. For tickets call the Suns box office

a Sierra Leone and Ghana mother and a father from
Grenada. Estelle runs her own record label, Stellar
Ents, and has released her own material through this
including the two "Da Heat" mixtapes Part 1 and 2,
the album The 18th Day and the singles "1980",
"Free" and "Go Gone". She featured on Natasha
Bedingfield's song "Drop Me In The Middle" for
Natasha's U.S. release of Unwritten. She also did a
memorable rap verse on a 2006 Omar song, "Lay it
< i She has received the MOBO for "Best
Newcomer" and received three consecutive "Best
Female Artist" trophies from the UK Hip-Hop
.' Awards.
S~Estelle was originally on the Ill Flava Records.
Label owned by Hip Hop award winner Karl Hinds,
S.|who together with Estelle and Joni Rewind re-
released the well known Althia & Donna 1978
track, 'Uptown Top Rankin'. Estelle also worked on various other tracks and videos with Karl
Hinds and Ill Flava Records.
In 2005 Estelle revealed on the Sky Sports show Soccer AM that her birth name is actual-
ly "Fanta"[citation needed]and her favourite drink is Ribena.
In 2006, Estelle appeared at the London School Harris City Technology College for a Post
16 Year Of Achievement Night, and she could also be seen in the video for John Legend's sin-
gle "Save Room". Also in 2006, Estelle joined rapper Kardinal Offishall's Black Jays
International, and was eventually signed to singer John Legend's Homeschool Records through
Atlanti Records.
According to her official Blogspot, she had a photo-shoot on the week of July 2, 2007, for
her new album. Estelle has been critical of the music industry's perceived double standards of
preferring white women over black women.
The forthcoming album will feature production from the likes of Will.I.Am, Wyclef Jean,
Mark Ronson, Cee-Lo, Swizz Beatz, and John Legend.
Kanye West also features on the album, on a track called "American Boy" which reached
number one in the UK singles chart on March 23, 2008. Estelle will be touring with Wyclef Jean

June, Glasgow ABC on the 9th June, Birmingham Custard Factory on the 10th June and the
Shepherds Bush Empire on the 12th June.
Estelle will perform at halftime of the 2008 MLS All-Star Game on July 24, 2008 at BMO
Field in Toronto, Ontario.

Mica Paris
(born Michelle
Wallen on
April 27 1969
in London,
England) is an
English singer.
She began
singing in
church at an
early age and
then went on to
become a ses-
sion singer at
the age of 15,
for bands such
as Hollywood.
Beyond and Shakatak.
In 1988, she released her most successful single, My
One Temptation, which peaked at #7. In the continuing
years she went on to release many more singles and
albums. She currently has her own show on BBC Radio
2, called Soul Sessions. She also competed in the ITV
singing competition Hit Me Baby One More Time.
On February 14th 2001, Mica lost her brother to a
shooting and has since campaigned against gun crime in
the UK.
During January 2006, Mica appeared in the 4 part
BBC TV series The Sound of Musicals. In April 2006, it
was announced that she arind model Lisa Butcher, were to
take over from Trinny Woodall and Susannah
Constantine, to be the new co-presenters of the long run-
ning BBC TV series What Not to Wear.
Paris also performed alongside Pink Floyd's David
Gilmour, on the evenings of 30 May and 31 May 2006 at
the Royal Albert Hall, singing The Great Gig in the Sky.
In the autumn of 2006, Paris took part in Strictly
Come Dancing where she danced with Ian Waite. She
was the second celebrity to be knocked out of the com-


English pop singer. Her first
album, Great Expectations,
spawned the smash hit,
"Sleeping Satellite", a philo-
sophical song about the moon
landings, which reached number
one in the United Kingdom.
She joined a group called
'Dignity' as a backing vocalist.

Later, after studying secretarial
skills she became a clerk at
.Leeds Magistrates' Court. She
helped out at a recording studio
in Bradford called 'Flexible
Response', and subsequently
began working with musicians
John Hughes and John Beck
Archer signed to EMI in 1990,
and released her first single
Sleeping Satellite in September
1992, which went to no.1 in the
UK. The album "Great
Expectations" followed in
October (reaching no.8). Further
singles from the album followed,
and although they were top 40
hits in the UK, they did not
achieve the same level of suc-
cess as her debut. In 1993,

Archer won a BRIT Award for
the Best British Breakthrough
After disappearing from the
limelight, Archer reappeared in
1996 with her second album
"Bloom". However, the album
(and subsequent single "One
More Good Night With The
Boys"), failed to make any
impact on the chart. In late 1997,
disagreements with EMI left
Archer somewhat disillusioned
and feeling like she had'been
treated as a commodity. She
decided to take a short break
from the industry. After two
years she felt the time was right
to start writing again but was
hindered by writer's block.

Although this didn't prevent her
from being initially creative she
found it difficult to finish any-
thing musically. However, she
did not let this stop her from
expressing her creativity in other
ways, and she began painting
and moulding clay during this
time away from the spotlight. It
was also during this time that her
love of Sunderland AFC blos-
somed, committing to a season-
ticket with her Sunderland-bomrn
musician partner John Hughes in
1999 after falling in love with the
team when taken to her first
match in the late 1980s. She
retains her ticket to this day.
After working through the
block and starting in 2002, she

and Hughes worked on a new

Junior High School, along with stopping by the corner
store for honey drippers, grape sodas and peanuts to

Do I have a selective memory? You would not
have thought so when there was a chorus of fond/
agreement among the people comprising the audience/
of College Garden residents at the recent and first ever/
reuniolopcf neighbors. We collectively agreed thatthr
aren'10any people vh~o have an affinity for their nih
borhood as do' the residents and former residents of
College Gardens, .o'ne of -the early subdivisionsfo
African A~mericans in Jacksonville built after World
War II.
The humble and hard working adults in this com-
mnunity raised their families during a time whenth
home, the church and the school were uinbreakable
units that nurtured children and raised them to love
God, respect thie family unit and prepare to mk
w~holdSome: contributions to the community at large.
There werer codes .spoken and unspoken' that con-
firmed that education was a right and a privileges
that belief in a higher power was first nature. Many of
the children of College Gardens stayed rightc here in
Jackson ille and are stri~vitig or have reached thetp
of our game in whatever our profession. We are isil
ing the same v~alues in our children and grandchildrn
The reunion was planned not only as a celerto
but as an opportunity to highlight College Garden/
patriarchs and matriarchs and honor the foundation
they established and nurtured. In the words of Pamaela
Winston-Conoly, "We are truly a village!" Excerptsl
from the occasion by Dr.: Brenda Robinlson/

duct that is strictly prohibited.

2.No person shall use or threaten force or violence.
3.No persort shall tell a debtor who disputes a consumer debt that he or any person employing him will dis
close to another person, either orally or in writing, directly or indirectly, information affecting the debtor's repu-
tton as far as his credit is concerned, without also informing the debtor that the existence of the dispute will also
4.No person shall communicate or threaten to communicate with a debtor's employer prior to obtaining a

10. No person shall use a communication which simulates in any manner, legal or judicial process, orwhc
gies the appearance of being authorized, issued or approved, by a governmental agency or attorney at lawwhn
infact, it is not.
11. No person shall communicate with a debtor under the guise of an attorney by using the stationary of a
atorney or forms or instruments which only attorney are authorized to prepare.
12. No person shall orally communicate with a debtor in such a manner as to give the false impression o
apernethat such person is associated with an attorney when, in fact, he is not.
13. No person shall advertise or threaten to advertise for sale any debt as a means to enforce payment excp
udrcourt order or when acting as an assignee for the benefit of a creditor.
14. No person shall publish or post, threaten to publish or post, or cause to be published or posted before te
geirlpublic individual names or any list of names of debtors, commonly known as a "deadbeat list" for the pur-
poeof enforcing or attempting to enforce collection of consumer debts.

that her child's father, Mr. Hills punched her in the face several times. The victim
stated that she was inside her residence last night around 2100 when she and the wit-
ness heard a knock on the window and then a knock at the door. As the victim
opened the door, the suspect walked inside and refused to leave. The suspect broke
the victim's cell phone to keep her from calling the police but the victim advised to
the witness that she had the situation under control. The victim's phone is'valued at
$125.00. The witness left the residence for work and` the suspect remained inside.
The witness returned to the residence along with two of the victim's male friends.
The suspect punched the victim in the face four times with a closed fist because he
did not approve of her guests. The witness called the police when the violence erupt-
ed. Officer observed a swollen bruise on the cheek of the victim's face and arrested
the suspect.

school bus. Upon arrival, he made contact with victim #2, Ms. Jackson, also
the school bus driver. Ms. Jackson works for victim #1. Ms. Jackson stated
that while traveling North on Riverplace Blvd, she observed the listed suls-
pect walking on the sidewalk in the same direction. Just before passing the
suspect threw the listed property (rock) at the front windshield causing sub-
stantial damage. The impact caused glass particles to spray the driver and
travel half the distance of the bus, reaching some of the children present on
the bus; no injuries were reported.
She instantly pulled into the complex of 1401 Riverplace Blvd and
began blowing the horn. She provided the physical and clothing description
of the suspect and pointed to the suspect who was running through the walk-
way of The Strand Apartments and the Peninsula Condo's. Witness #1,
observed the suspect and began following him, never losing site as the sus-
pect went across the Main St. bridge.
Officer arrived on scene and the victim advised him of the suspects
clothing description. She stated that the suspect was a b/m, with dreads
wearing a brown hoodie. Officer advised another Officer to Zone 1, where
the witness was still following the suspect. Officer #2 arrived at Bay and Main
St and took the suspect in custody. Witness confirmed with the officer that

And to make matters

The first came with lit-

down the left side bounced.

tion was when Miami (2-4)
officially 'lost the bout.

heart. He was dedicated to this institution as well as to the principals of ethical lead-
ership. The abiding desire to carry on his legacy led me to Dr. Fluker's door a few
months ago. Our vision for the MJYF is to edify fundamental values and life skills,
encourage moral commitments and develop the ability to engage in ethical reason
ing -- a mission already articulated by Dr. Robert Franklin, the president of
Morehouse College," said Ms. Edmond.
"The forces of money, power,~ and technology are on a collision course with
the fragile traditions of character, civility and community.
This is dangerous territory," says Dr. Fluker. "Who will train a new generation of
courageous, globally connected, ethically centered leaders. Enter the Leadership
Center at Moreho'use," he added. Dr. Fluker has lead the efforts at the Leadership
Center at Morehouse since ... and had worked closely with Maynard Jackson dur-
ing the early life of The Leadership Center.
Phase I of the partnership between the MJYF and Morehouse will consist of
an assessment of needs and the design of the requisite curriculum. This phase will
further define the participation of students, faculty, and administrators at each part-
ner institution, and will identify the requisite training and funding requirements for
a pilot program and subsequent implementations of the MJYF program.
The deliverable from Phase I will be the pilot program.
The Maynard Jackson Youth Foundation, a Georgia non-profit organization,
was founded by Mayor Maynard Jackson in 199'1 to teach leadership skills to young
people. John Holley, the foundation president and Valerie Jackson, Mayor Jackson's
widow and the Chair of the Board of the Foundation, have been responsible for
many components of the programs including leadership training. In October, 2009,
the MJYF Leadership Academy will begin its 18thi Leadership Academy class of
11Ith grade high school students from Atlanta Public Schools and the first class from
high schools located in South Fulton County. Students are selected by their high
school counselors to participate in the academy for one year.
"The Youth Foundation seeks, to enhance self esteem and pride in accom-
plishment, to support a positive value system and to instill a commitment to ethical
public service for the youth we work with," said Ms. Edmond. "These are the prin-
ciples my father taught those around him to live by and these are the values that we
remain committed to pass on to the students of today. We hope to broaden the reach
of MJYF and bring meaningful programs to the metro Athinta community as a part
of my father's legacy," Ms. Edmond added.

Amount a campaign to unite ethics and leadership and to train young people to
become leaders with a conscience. Bound together through the legacy of the
Atlanta's first African American Mayor Maynard: Jackson, a Morehouse alumnus,
these two organizations recognize their mutual benefits mn the fields of education,
training, and leadership development and will work together to create an aggressive
ethical leadership curriculum and to dissemmnate such knowledge, on a long term
basis, focusing oil the Atlanta Metropolitan area.

coming football game.
Gant, a 1978 graduate of FAMU's School of Business and Industry, said it felt
great to come back to make the presentation.
"We are not responsible for how we find this world when we are born; howev-
er, we are responsible for how we leave the world."
The principal goal of the Center is to encourage faculty-led student research on
national security issues.. The Center will be a multidisciplinary -research, instructional.
and pre-college school outreach unit aimed at increasing the pool of talented young
men and women. It will' focus primarily, though not exclusively, on minorities and
women from which Intelligence Community agencies (consisting of 16 federal execu-
tive departments and agencies) may recruit new employees.
Some examples of U.S. Intelligence Commu~nity departments and- agencies
include: the State Department, Department of De~fe~nse, Department of Energy, and
the Central Intelligence Agency. The Center will conduct a number of programs and
activities whose aim will be to enhance research spearheaded by faculty, but with
FAMU students and precollege students substantively engaged with faculty. Ultimately,
research enhancement efforts will broaden the pool of available researchers and pro-
vide an important window of exposure to students and faculty who will desire to
become a pbart of the intelligence community in'some capacity or other, yet consistent
with the needs of the National Intelligence Community.
.Keith Simmonds, Ph.D., assistant dean~ of the College of Arts arid Sciences and
professor of public administration and political science,~ will serve as principal investi-
"For the first time in a significant way, we are enabling our minorities and
women to prepare to come to the ~decision-rnaking table where decisions on national
security and international relations. are made," said Simmonds. "We are contributing
to the diversity that this nation seeks and heeds on such a major national matter. -This
grant: really establishes a direct pathway to this very important table."
Gary Paul, Ph.D., associate professor for political science and public adminis-
tration, will serve as co-principal investigator along with co-principal investigator Ren
Moses, Ph.D., associate professor of civil engineering.
Larry Riobinson, Ph.D., professor and vice president for Research, said, "This
awartd shows the tremendous breadth of the talents of faculty and students at FAMU."
Other Center- personnel will include the daily management by a, director who will
serve as the operational liaison between FAMU and the U.S. Intelligence Community
and will be responsible for workings with university officials to achieve the, goals had
objectives of the Center. Le~ttdership will be provided to develop strategic partnerships
with the Intelligence Community agencies such as the Department of State,
Department of Defense, and other public and private organizations in order to facilitate
the .preparation 'of students for professional careers in tthe U.S. Intelligence

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Victory AM 1360 WCGL became
Jacksonville's first full-time radio station with an all-gospel music for-
mat in 1979 with the commitment to present the word of God to the
Jacksonville community. While the local radio industry has encoun-
tered hundreds of ownership, format anid personnel changes during
this period, WVCGL has remained "Jacksonville's Longtime Friend"'
with the same management team for 20 of the past 30 years.

"I have been blessed to lead this great organization over the past 20
years," said Deborah Maiden, owher and general manager of
WCGLL "Our mission has remained intact since 1989 and I am
extremely proud that we have not wavered in our desire to serve this
community with great gospel music while presenting the word of
God through the various ministries that air on our radio station daily.
That is why we have no problem with our trademark, Victory AM
1360 WCGL, Where Christ Gets Lifted."

This year, WCGL will commemorate its 30th anniversary with a
gospel celebration concert on Saturday, November 7th at the 5,000-
seat Paxon Revival Center, 5461 Commonwealth Avenue. Gospel
recording artists scheduled to appear will be the legendary Canton
Spirituals, Vickie Yohe, The Nevels Sisters, Keith "Wonderboy"
Johnson, and James Fortune & FlYA. Vendor space is available
inside the church's atrium.

For more information, call WCGL Radio at 904.766.9955.
