Police said Charles J. Cloud
found an unknown black man
standing at his bedside when he
awoke around 1:40 a.m. August 5
in his residence in the 3600 block
of Abby Lane.

The intruder then proceeded to
stab the 66-year-old white man
who later underwent surgery for
multiple stab wounds at University
Medical Center.

An incident report filed by po-
lice noted that Cloud was listed
in critical condition at UMC. A
spokesperson at the hospital said
the victim was listed in fair condi-

Police investigation revealed
that the unknown man entered
the victim's home by pushing in a
screen and unlocking the door on
the northside of the home.

Nation's Largest African American Organization
Plans March On Birmingham, Alabama

NASHVILLE, TN--In a letter to
the Congressional Black Caucus
and all civil rights organizations,
the new president of the National
Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., will
lead a Mass March in Birming-
ham, September 6.

"The March is being held to
show America that Black Ameri-

recent acts of Congress and the

U.S. Supreme Court to go un-
checked," Lyons declared. ;

The March is planned during
the 115th Annual National Con-
vention of the nation's largest Af-
rican American organization.

Dr. Lyons stated that African
Americans have always had to
have the law on their side in order
to achieve any measure of suc-
cess in this country.

Dr. Henry Lyons

He says the leadership in Con-
gress and the U.S. Supreme
Court, is trying to turn the clock
back to repeal laws that give Afri-
can Americans equal opportunity.

Lyons continued: “It is timely
that we are convening in Birming-
ham, Alabama, the city which
symbolizes the cradle of the civil
rights struggle. Itis the city where
Dr. King wrote his passionate "Let-
ter from a Birmingham Jail;" the
city where three of our own Bap-
tist children were killed in the

bombing of the * 16th Street-Bap-

tist Church and the city where we.

intend to bring back to the atten-

tion of all Americans the struggle

we must continue and the dream
we must keep alive."

Lyons also said, "In 1963, Dr.
King had a dream, but, in 1995,
we are experiencing a nightmare!"

The National Baptist :Conven-
tion represents over 8,000,000
people and more than 30,000
churches say officials. Over

MIAMI (AP) While the Mi-
ami Dolphins were still search-
ing for the right chemistry in their

_} exhibition opener, the fledgling

Jaguars gained some much
needed confidence.

“I told Dan Marino when we
were coming off the field that this
was like winning the Super Bowl
for us," said starting quarterback
Steve Beuerlein.

Beuerlein hit 4 of 6 passes
for 48 yards and fumbled, lead-
ing the Jaguars on a third-quar-
ter touchdown drive keyed by
Stewart's 56-yard run. Mark
Brunell went 5-for-9 and
scrambled effectively to keep
two key drives going. He drove
the Jaguars on an 88-yard
touchdown. drive in the second
quarter to make it 14-7, then led
them 65 yards on 12 plays to put
Sisson in position for the winning
field goal.

The Jacksonville Jaguars
know that first expansion season
can be long and difficult, so for-
give them if they pause to savor
the first win in team history.

The Jaguars (1-1) won in the
last second on a 32-yard field
goal by Scott Sisson, who made
a habit of game-winning field
goals in Georgia Tech's national
championship season in 1990.

yards in the Jaguars’ 24-21 win
over the Miami Dolphins on Fri-
day. “I know for everybody it was
a good experience and it gets you
ready for the season.”

The Dolphins, who have been
talking about Super Bowl plans
after a busy offseason beefing up
their talent, appeared far from
ready for the season.

“One of the most disappoint-
ing things was the way the major-
ity of our first defense played
against their offense in the sec-
ond quarter when they moved it
down the field, got the interference
penalty and then scored the
touchdown,” coach Don Shula
said Saturday. “Needless to say
we're very disappointed with the
way we played in the second half.”

The Dolphins took steps in
the offseason to strengthen their
defense and improve their running
game, so the loss to the Jaguars
was a bitter pill. The Dolphins only
gained 61 yards rushing, while the
Jaguars had 230.

“I thought we made great
strides in our run defense last
year, but it didn’t hold up in the San
Diego (playoff) game,” Shula said
the day after the loss. “This
offseason and preseason, we
hoped to emphasize our run de-
fense along with a better run of-

backs Terry Kirby and Keith Byars

strengthening their running game.

Byars said he’s feeling bet-
ter and expects to play by the
final preseason game.

“I'm getting stronger and

should be ready to take some
hits in the next two or three
weeks.” :

The Jaguars’ offensive
dominance also worried Shula,
who brought in veteran defen-
sive linemen Trace Armstrong
and Steve Emtman to bolster
his defensive front. Emtman
made some big plays early
against the Jaguars--a fumble
recovery and key stop on a
short-yardage play.

“I still have a long ways to
go and a lot to prove,” said
Emtman, who was plagued with
injuries after entering the NFL
with Indianapolis in 1992 as a
top defensive prospect from the
University of Washington. “I just |
want to be a team player and fit
in where | fit in. I'm having to
feel my way. I'm starting to get
the feel of it again and I'm just
happy to be blessed with a
chance to play.”

Beuerlein said he wasn't
worried about the starting job
and noted Brunell was “playing
against second- and third-team ,
players.” 3

Brunell said the win should
boost team confidence and that:
the Jaguars’ pass protection:
was improving. ;

“| don't like to leave the
pocket,” he said. But it is nice
to have that capé ility if | have?

60,000 are expectted in Birming-
ham for the National Convention
and over 25,000 plan to march.

Lyons has asked the National
Urban League, the NAACP, the
Congressional Black Caucus, the
SCLC and numerous other Afri-
can American organizations to join
with the National Baptists in this
historic Birmingham March.

President Clinton has also been

The March will take place on
Wednesday, September 6, at 3
p.m., beginning at the Birmingham
Civic Center.

city toward the 16th Street Bap-

mingham Civil Rights Park with a
speech by President Lyons.

Rep. Willye F. Dennis shown above with Rev. Rudolph McKissick, shared a
lesson in the history of Florida with worshipers at Bethel Baptist Church,
in the reading of a resolution adopted by the House of Representatives.

House Resolution Recognizes
Bethel Baptist Church During
Sesquicentennial Celebration

By Clifton Coleman and
Erica Simpson

Pride in the city and pride in the
history of Florida abounded on
Sunday, August 6, at the 10:45
a.m. service of Bethel Baptist In-
stitutional Church.

Representative Willye F. Den-
nis, escorted by her son Leo Den-
nis presented the pastor, Rev.
Rudolph W. McKissick, with a
resolution she presented to the
House of Representatives recog-
nizing the history of Bethel.

The reading of the resolution,
adopted by the House on April 20,
was received by a standing ova-
tion by the congregation of
Jacksonville's famous church.

The resolution was indeed a
history lesson, in recognizing the
1838 organization of the Church
and its subsequent use as a hos-
pital by federal troops during the
Civil War.

The Church was cited for es-
tablishing so many home and
foreign missionaries and new
churches that it was recognized
as the "Mother Church" of Jack-

Creation of the Florida Baptist

Academy, in 1891, by the Church,
led to Florida Memorial College,
now located in Miami, Bethel Busi-
ness College, and a primary
through eighth grade school.

The document also recognized
the present-day missions of the
Church, including services to
youth, a credit union, Christian
counseling, and ministries to
indigents, transients, and drug

The House resolution further
recognized the ministers dating
from 1868: Rev. Cataline
Simmons, 1868-1880; Rev.
Rodger D. Dunbar, 1880-1885;
Rev. J. Gardner Ross, 1885-1890;
Rev. Matthew W. Gilbert, 1890-
1892; Rev. J. Milton Waldron,
1892-1907; Rev. John E. Ford,
1907-1943; Rev. Charles Satchell
Morris Il, 1944-45; Rev.. L.E.
Terrell, 1946-1952; Rev. Robert H.
Wilson, 1953-1966; and Rev.
Rudolph W. McKissick, 1967 to
the present.

The resolution comes during
Florida's Sesquicentennial (150
years) celebration of Florida's
statehood, and recognizes the
outstanding contributions of the
Church to the state.

Brown Condemns Labor-HHS-Education Bill

gresswoman Corrine Brown (D-
FL) denounced the passage of the
Labor-HHS-Education Appropria-
tions bill as mean-spirited and
punitive towards children, stu-
dents, working families and se-
niors. The spending bill passed
he house by a vote of 219 - 208.

The bill eliminates funding for
170 programs including the sum-
mer youth jobs program.

"Shame on the Republicans for
passing this mean-spirited bill."
...To make these cuts in order to
help pay for a $245 billion tax cut
for the wealthy is despicable,"
charged Brown.

g |


Imagine a steam engine mov-
ing steadily down its track. Once
it gets rolling, its nearly impossible
to stop that train. The machinery
of death row is like that steam
engine and that machinery is roll-
ing down the track in the case of
Mumia Abu-Jamal. The question
is whether Governor Thomas
Ridge and the state of Pennsyl-
vania will stop the train of death.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is a re-
spected African American journal-
ist and an advocate for racial and
economic justice. He describe
himself as a journalist, husband,
father and grandfather who lives
in the fastest growing public hous-
ing tract in America. He is a man
living on death row and scheduled
to be executed on August 17, for
a crime he probably did not com-
mit -- the murder of a Philadelphia
police officer.

Yet the death penalty machine
rolls on, impervious to the many
irregularities of Abu-Jamal's trail,
to the probable misconduct of the
Philadelphia police and prosecu-
tors in his case. Irregularities such
as of the 125 eyewitness who
gave statements to the police at
the scene of the crime, the pros-
ecution used only two of them,
both of whom had previous con-
victions and pending charges
against them and both of whom
identified Abu-Jamal as the
shooter. Irregularities such as the
reports by at least four witnesses
that they had seen the shooter run
away, while Abu-Jamal who wag
also wounded and unable to-run,
was found sitting on the curb at
the crime. Irregularities such as
the fact that the police department
did not do ballistics test which
could have eliminated Abu-
Jamal's gun and hid other evi-
dence concerning the bullet's tra-
jectory and the caliber of the gun
used. Irregularities such as the
fact that while a police officer who
had been with Abu-Jamal after the
incident had made a deposition
saying Abu-Jamal had made no
statements, an alleged confession
was reported by other officers only
several months after the shooting
occurred. There are other legal
irregularities as well.

Yet, the death penalty rolls on,
unswayed by the fact that Abu-
Jama! had a long history of politi-

cal activity in Philadelphia, which
meant that he had been targeted
by law enforcement by that city's
police department for many years.
Indeed, the judge who presided
over Abu-Jamal's trial, Judge
Albert Sabo, is called the hanging
judge because he has sentenced
more people to death than any
other judge in the United States,
all but two of whom are people of

Yet, the death penalty machine
rolls on, uninfluenced by the fac-
tor of race in this case. Half of
those on death row inthe U.S. are
people of color -- African Ameri-
can men alone make up 40 per-
cent of death row prisoners al-
though they represent less than 6
percent of the population. In
Pennsylvania, 61 percent of death
row is African American. Almost
all are poor and most receive in-
ferior legal assistance since only
about 80 of Philadelphia's 8,000
lawyers both qualify and are will-
ing to represent defendants in
capital cases as it takes months
or years to get paid. In addition,
poor defendants do not have ac-
cess to the funds needed to do
their own investigations to dispute
the prosecution cases.

It's no wonder that after hear-
ing dozens of death penalty cases
during his years on the Supreme
Court that former Justice Harry
Blackman wrote, "Even under the
most sophisticated death penalty
statues, race continues to play a
major role in determining who
shall live'and who shall ‘die:" “it's
no wonder that another Supreme
Court Justice, William O. Douglas,
once said, "One searches our
chronicles in vain for the execu-
tion of any member of the affluent
strata of our Society."

All direct appeals have now
been exhausted and Abu-Jamal's
appeals are before the Pennsyl-
vania Supreme Court. Mean-
while, the clock ticks and the death
penalty train rolls for Mumia Abu-
Jamal. The Pennsylvania Su-
preme Court can stop the train.
Write him and ask him to stop the
execution of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Write him, in the name of justice.
Write him. (Governor Thomas

Black Businesses Dependent
On Federal Government

By Sharon Hodge

The time has come for the
black business community to be-
come self-sufficient. Instead of
depending on the government to
level the playing field, black lead-
ers should be doing it themselves.

Black entertainment
television's Robert Johnson is
missing the point. Last month,
Johnson urged the nation's 100
largest black-owned businesses
to cough up $5,000 each to form
a political action committee. The
purpose of that would-be PAC is
to lobby in favor of keeping racial

Johnson's plea came on the
heels of the widely talked about
United States Supreme Court de-
cision that narrows federal affir-
mative action rules. In that case -
- Adarand Constructors Inc. vs.
Pena, Secretary of Transportation
-- a white contractor in Colorado
sued the government after a mi-
nority-owned firm was awarded a
project in 1990 even though

up the August sky. At work, there
could be overtime or you may be
asked to take on duties for one
who is away because of illness or
Porsenal problems. 8-9-17-28-33-

Adarand's company submitted the
lower bid. The high court deter-
mined that action smacked of re-
verse discrimination.

And while legal experts are
assessing the ruling's effect,
Johnson was waged a damage
control effort. But the money he
intends to raise could be put to
much better use.

If the country's premier black
business can donate money for a
fight to hold on to racial prefer-
ences, they could invest money to
assist smaller minority businesses
so federal preferences wouldn't be
needed. Why not create a fund
that would provide training in the
areas of competitive bidding, cost-
efficiency or networking. These
front runners could extend a finan-
cial hand to groom and nurture
fledgling companies. Instead
Johnson suggest exacerbating
and permeating the problem.

The problem, of course, is that
firms who turn to racial preference
tend to rely upon it -- never to be
weaned. There's an attitude that
minority businesses are entitled,
owed and inherently more deserv-
ing. The Supreme Court's deci-
sion is an indication that America
is saying that'dan attitude blacks
need to get over. :

"Black folks built the pyramids
in Africa," Ray Jones told USA




TODAY reporter Andrea Stone at
the National Association of Minor-
ity Contractors annual meeting in
Atlanta in June. "We've been in
the construction business a long
time. But we don't yet have our
fair share."

Fair? What's fair about deny-
ing the lowest bidder work be-
cause he's not the right race? If
Adarand had been black, cries of
racism would have echoed from
coast to coast.

Perhaps Jones should be ask-
ing why black companies aren't
running their business more cost-
effectively. It's all about money,
not color.

So get over it and move on.
The time has come for the black
business community to become
self-sufficient. Instead of depend-
ing on the government to level the
playing field, black leaders should
be doing it themselves.

Paul King, head of UBM Inc.
has said his construction com-
pany will be among the first to
heed Johnson's plea. | challenge
him to use that $5,000 in a more
effective manner. | would wager
that until now King has done little
to strengthen the economic viabil-
ity of smaller companies. Point-
ing fingers at Republicans, King
says drastic actions are neces-
sary. Well he's partially correct.
Drastic measures are necessary,
but he should be thanking the
Republicans, not criticizing them.

Perhaps the resurgence of the
principles of free enterprise will
become a catalyst to stronger mi-
nority-run companies. The hand-
outs have obviously resulted in the
weakening of the black entrepre-
neurial spirit.

That's if we believe those who
cling to affirmative action. Those
who have not leaned upon the
racial crutch have found that op-
portunity and financial rewards
can be obtained through other
avenues. While the Adarand case
was pending before the court, |
interviewed a variety of minority

entrepreneurs, including Chuck

Wheeler operates an insur-
ance agency in the Chicago area.
Programs based on racial prefer-
ences, he says, tarnish the cred-
ibility of minority contractors. "if
we get rid of minority set-aside
programs, that would be the best
thing in the world for black and
minority contractors,” said
Wheeler . He has considered tak-
ing advantage of minority con-
tracts to build his company from
Uncle Sam.

Statistics support that conten-
tion. In 1990, minority business
enterprise nationwide earned in
the neighborhood of $9.4 billion
from government contracts. Only
$3.7 billion of that was acquired
through minority set-aside con-
tracts, according to D.J. Miller and
Associates, an Atlanta-based eco-
nomic research firm. The lion's
share -- $5.7 billion -- was income
from direct government contracts.
And that was the same year pref-
erential treatment was used
against Adarand.

So the argument that minority
business aren't getting a fair share
lacks merit. Consequently, federal
programs based exclusively on
race should be looked at with
close scrutiny.

If black business are con-
cerned with the future of minority-
owned endeavors, they should be
equally concemed about ending
race-based preferences. Such
_programs do nothing to develop
the self-reliance that is necessary
for long-term growth and stability.

After all, what the government
gives, it can -- and ultimately will -
-take away. Surely the Supreme
Court's action provides ample evi-
dence of that.

Letters To The Editor

Re: Affirmative Action

As an economist, | see the current dispute over affirmative action
laws as intriguing. It seems to my reasoning that affirmative action
laws represent the only feasible solution to an economic injustice grow-

ing more severe by the day.

If we agree that racial prejudice has significant and real presence

in America, we should also agree that measures are needed to pro-
tect victims of racial prejudice from economic injustice. After all, it
should be obvious to all people that prejudice of any kind between
people can result in economic injustice occurring. Germany's Nazi's
proved this. Their prejudice against Jews directly resulted in Jews
suffering devastating economic injustice in the 1930's, prior to the ho-

A perfect economic system arises from a perfect society. To the
degree a society is imperfect, you can expect the society's economic
system to be imperfect as well.

In my view, racial prejudice appears to have significant presence in
America. It consequently causes a real human need to be present for
laws of the nature of affirmative action laws.

During the lazy, hazy days of summer the men of Flajax Club Inc.
celebrate with their annual outing. The Officer's Club at Naval Air Sta-
tion Mayport again was the ideal setting for this year's casual affair for
the member's, their families and guests. President Maurice Barnett
and business manager Henry Sellers along with other club members
were ideal hosts to their guests including children who were all dressed
in comfortable colorful outfits to fit the occasion.

Approximately 110 folk were present to enjoy the cool ocean breeze
and music by The Production--dee jay Anthony Varner. There was
music to suit one's pleasure, listening or dancing. Youngsters went
bowling, others for a dip in the ocean. Games attracted some guests
including a special treat taught by Lois Iszard called "In Between".

An extensive food buffet of delicious foods enticed everyone after
Flajax Tommy Chandler said the blessing. Club member Wendell
Holmes announced the football game to be played between Bethune-
Cookman College and Hampton University on Sept. 30th in the Jack-
sonville Municipal Stadium, old Gator Bowl. The Gateway Classic held
in the home of the Jaguars will afford fans to enjoy this game at the
affordable prices.

It was a super outing for the Flajax are always great host. Everyone
thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon of fun!

"Monica - Monica" as she entered. There was no - "Now dinner is
served". When guests arrived they were invited to serve themselves
from the array of delicious foods, most of which the proud Mother had
prepared herself.

Diyvsion of Property In A
Divorce Proceeding

This is a weekly legal update
from the law offices of Bivens,

is the concept of "special equity
interest." The date of marriage is

home could be partitioned if there
are no minor children at the time
of divorce. If there had been mi-

-nor children the court generally

allows the spouse who is granted
custody to remain in the marital
home until the minor children
reach the age of eighteen (18) and
complete high school or get mar-
ried. This is called the age of
majority. Once all children have
reached the age of majority the
court will order the sale of the
marital home. The spouse who
paid the mortgage payments from
the date of the divorce until the
children reached the age of ma-

cial equity interest and can involve
complex calculations.

In the end, the courts are de-
signed to fairly divide the pro-
ceeds of the marital home. Spe-
cial consideration exist for special
equity interest payment of the
mortgage after divorce. You are
reimbursed from the proceeds of
the sale of the marital home for
assets brought into the marriage
used to purchase a home. You
are also reimbursed for monies
spent after divorce to finance the
marital home for the minor chil-

Please note that this is a very

Jones & Associates, Attorneys at
law. This article will deal with the
division of the marital residence
in a divorce proceeding.

As we are all aware, a divorce
proceeding can involve very
heated and emotional issues. The
best way to avoid such torment is
to be well informed about the prob-
able outcomes before filing for a
divorce. To settle a divorce, or to
have the court determine a final
judgment, there must be an equi-
table settlement of all property and
debts. All property purchased with
money that was acquired during
the marriage must be evenly di-
vided and all debts taken on by
the marriage must be split up

While property settlements can
involve a number of different items
and debts, we will limit our discus-
sion to the division of the martial
residence. The marital residence
is the home where both husband
and wife live during the marriage.
To limit our discussion to the is-
sue of a property division of the
marital residence, we must first
assume all other property and ali-
mony issues have been equitably
resolved by the count, or the par-
ties by agreement.

To begin our discussion we will
use the simplest of situations to
explain how the marital home is
divided. If there are no minor chil-
dren of the marriage, the court
will usually order a partition of the
marital home. A partition is the
sale of property and the division
of the proceeds between the own-
ers. In our case the owners are
the husband and wife.

If a house was purchased dur-
ing the marriage using only money
made during the marriage, then
the profit from the sale of the
house will split evenly between the
husband and wife . This is true
even if only one party paid the
mortgage payment each month.
This is a simple example. A hus-
band and wife bought a home
during their marriage which has
been paid off with the husband's
monthly income made during the
marriage, but they now want a di-
vorce and have no minor children.
The house would be sold and the
husband and wife would split the
profit. : ;

The example works no matter
of the difference in income brought

. home by each party during the

marriage. :
The next issue we will deal


the starting point of acquiring mari-
tal property. Because of that fact,
one party in a divorce may be en-
titled to receive more than one-half
of the proceeds from the: sale of
the marital home during the mar-
riage. A piece of property, stock,
inheritance, a significant sum of
money, or something of value one
party owns before the marriage is
a premarital asset. If one party
sells their premarital asset during
the marriage to purchase the mari-
tal home, they have a "special
equity interest" in the marital

Now assume that a couple
bought a home that is now paid
off. They have no minor children
and now want to partition the
house for a property settlement in
their divorce case. At the time of
purchase, the wife sold a piece of
land she owned prior to the mar-
riage and used that money as a
down payment to buy the marital
home. The wife would have a
"special equity interest" in the
marital home. She would be en-
titled to this special equity inter-
est at the time of sale in addition
to her right to one-half or fifty per-
cent (50%) of the proceeds from
the sale of the marital home. The
exact value of her "special equity
interest" is determined by a cal-
culation using the ratio that the
wife's percentage of the originally
paid by the wife, the premarital
asset multiplied by the present
day value of the home, all divided
by two. The wife's "special equity
interest" is calculated by taking the
amount originally paid by the wife,
divided by the original purchase
price to arrive at the original per-
centage contributed by the wife.
The next step is taking the present
day sale value of the marital home
multiplied by the percentage con-
tributed by the wife and dividing
by two. This would equal the
wife's special equity interest. The
wife would be entitled to half of the
proceeds, plus her “special equity

As you can see, the percent-
age of the original purchase price

paid by one spouse using a pre-

marital asset is the critical factor.

That percentage can cause the
present day value of the special
equity to vary greatly.

This has been a vary basic dis-
cussion and is designed only to
illustrate various ways a marital

jority is entitled to be reimbursed
for one-half of all the mortgage
payments paid during that time.
This can result in one party receiv-
ing a large percentage of the pro-
ceeds from the sale of the marital
home. This one-half reimburse-
ment for mortgage payments
scmetimes co-exists with a spe-

general discussion on partition of
the marital home. Special factors
and considerations must be taken
into account on a case-by-case
basis. Should you require any le-
gal advice in regard to your spe-
cific situation, you should seek the
advice of an attorney.

Negro League
(Continued From A-5B)

"We Are The Ship” -- A New League Is

While black independent baseball clubs
had been on the scene for more than a half
century, by 1920 there still was no formal
association of Negro teams. In February of
that year, Rube Foster, owner of the Chi-
cago American Giants, convened a meeting
of other independent black professional or-
ganizations at the Paseo YMCA in Kansas
City, Missouri. Out of that meeting the
Negro National League was born, and its
motto, "We are the Ship, All Else the Sea,"
symbolized its relationship with Major
League Baseball. The western-based league

consisted of eight teams, including clubs’

from Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City and St.
Louis. Three years later, the Eastern Colored
League was formed including 6 teams, and a
strong East/West rivalry was born.

As the decade wore on, Rube Foster be-

came ill and, without his dynamic leadership,
both leagues broke up. The Father of Black
Baseball, confined to a mental institution,
died of a heart attack in 1930. The visionary
pioneer was inducted into the Baseball Hall
of Fame in 1980.

1932 - A New Golden Age Begins

After the Great depression had shut down
many black teams, new leagues formed and
dissolved in rapid succession. But the num-
ber of teams continued to increase, new stars
entered the spotlight and attendance steadily
grew. Beginning in 1933, the annual East -
West all star classic became black baseball's
premier event, overshadowing even pennant
races and the Negro World Series. The tal-
ents of Buck Leonard, Josh Gibson, Satchel
Paige, James "Cool Papa" Bell and scores of
other rising stars drew crowds of over 50,000
-- topping the Major League's own All-Star

Major League executives like Bill Veeck
and Branch Rickey were anxious to open up
the white game and take advantage of the
skills of black players, but the iron hand

of Commissioner Kennesaw Mountain
Landis insured that the color barrier would
remain standing. Not until Landis’ death in
1944 could serious consideration be given
to dropping baseball's exclusionary practices.

By the end of World War II, black base-
ball franchises were at their peak of eco-
nomic success. Ironically, it was Branch

Rickey's decision in 1945 to sign a former

UCLA football star to a Brooklyn Dodger
minor league contract that would spell the
beginning of the end for Negro Baseball.

1947 - The Color Barrier Falls

In 1947 a 28-year-old rookie named John
Roosevelt Robinson took the field in a Brook-
lyn Dodger uniform. The signing of Jackie
Robinson proved to be the death knell of the
Negro Leagues as fans slowly migrated to
see their black stars perform in the white

The impact of black players-in the Major
Leagues was felt immediately. After
Robinson received the 1947 Rookie of the
Year award, black players won eight of the
next 11 of those honors. Nine of the 11 men

"These are some hard working and re-
spectful young men", exclaimed 84-year-old
Mrs. Birda Scott, watching her yard being

Ms. Margaret Stukes needed her yard cut
so she was also elated that the young men
pitched in and helped. "I needed the yard cut
but it's hard to get someone to do the job when
you are on a fixed income," said Ms. Stukes.

Many bewildered senior citizens worry
about snakes in the tall grass and crooks
hiding behind their overgrown shrubs.

They also worry that the City will give
them a bill if they have to cut their lots.

O. J. Henry, who got help from the youths
in the Shoot Baskets Not Brothers Program
said, "We old folks have to watch our pen-

" When you have to buy medicine, pay
rent and buy a little food, the yard is the
last thing you think about," added Henry.

The seniors who were helped by the young
males wondered why more churches don't
have projects where youths help older citi-
zens and stay off the streets.

One senior citizen, who wanted to remain
anonymous said many seniors don't have
families or children so they need people like
those in the Sheriff's Shoot Baskets Not
Brothers Program to help them.

The program curriculum provides charac-
ter-building, survival skills including disci-
pline, teamwork, fun, recreation and commu-
nity service opportunities.

Lito Sheppard has been in the program
for three years.

"I am a senior going to high school ...The
program has helped me a lot. I have a grand-
mother and I mow her lawn."

Maurice Canty understands why youths
should assist older citizens. "When you get
old you can't push the lawn mower or trim
the hedges like you could when you are young
like me," he boasted.

"That Sun sure was hot out there but you
didn't mind because you were doing some-
thing to help someone who really needs it,"
assured Raymond Dole.

Mark Thomas is a rookie in the program
but he enjoys the activities and friendships
made with other youths.

"I like the officers and I like working with
these older people. One day we are going to
get old and we'll need someone to cut our
yards," said Thomas.

Joan Turner, program manager of the City
of Jacksonville's Independent Living Pro-
gram said young people, like those in the
Shoot Baskets Not Brothers Program are un-
tapped resources in our community who can
meet many needs among senior citizens.

"We want the Community to know that all
Youth are not criminals but that many are
good and want to demonstrate they can be
contributing young citizens," says Officer
Jerry Thomas, coordinator of the program
along with fellow Officer Willie Perry.

The officers are also assisted by Officers
Frank Hayes, Darien Oliver, Mark Mills,
Antonio Richardson and Sherman Webb.

Bored Student Gets Geometry Defined And World Opens Up

By David Waters
(Courtesy of "The Memphis
Commercial Appeal)

MEMPHIS--Damien Scott used to sit in
geometry class and wonder about the short-
est distance between two points: his desk
and the door.

‘Then someone helped him approach the
class from a different angle.

A tutor at the Martin Luther King Jr. Edu-
cational and Cultural Center started with the
word. He helped Damien look up "ge-
ometry" in the dictionary.

"It was a Greek word," said Damien, 16,
whose geometry grades have improved.

"'Geo' meant the Earth, and 'metric' meant
the measurement of something. So it was

the measurement of the Earth. That made a

lot more sense than just something about

Words are the foundation of the Mem-
phis Literacy Project, which Damien partici-
pated in last year at the Martin Luther King

The program was brought to Memphis
last year by Isaac Hayes, the award-winning
entertainer and North Memphis native.

Hayes performed at the recent "Star
Spangled Celebration" benefit concert in
Memphis and plans to donate a portion of
the proceeds to the local program.

"It's gonna blow people's minds," Hayes
said of the program's effectiveness. It makes
you feel life is worth it."

Hayes is International Spokesperson for
the World Literacy Crusade launched in
May 1992 following the Los Angeles riots.

The project used L. Ron Hubbard's
Study Technology, a teaching and tutoring
method that promotes learning and study
skills as well as literacy.

There are 25 similar programs across the

Hubbard was the founder of Scientology,
but the literacy project's founder - - a Bap-
tist minister - -said the Study Technology is
secular and can be used by students of any
religious belief.

"I know it works" said Rev. Alfreddie
Johnson of Compton, Ca.

"We've used it to help gang members,
dyslexics, kids who were diagnosed as at-
tention deficit and regular kids."

Johnson said literacy isn't just about
learning to read and write. Students who
are bored, restless or disruptive often know
how to read.

"But if they don't understand the mean-
ing of a word," he said, "or don't know or
care how to apply what they're learning to
the real world, they're gonna get bored or
get mad. "

Hayes said he hopes to expand the pro-
gram to North Memphis and other local
sites as soon as funding is available.

"I was lucky," said Hayes, who dropped
out of school at 14 but returned with the
help of several teachers.

KANSAS CITY, MO.--The achievements
of the more than 2,600 black ballplayers
who competed in baseball's Negro Leagues
will be the focus of a three-day 75th Anni-
versary Celebration October 27 - 29 in Kan-
sas City, Missouri.

Many of the nearly 300 surviving Ne-
gro Leagues players will be on hand for
the "Soul of Baseball" celebration, orga-
nized by the Negro Leagues Baseball
Museum in Kansas City. Home run King
Henry Aaron, himself a former Negro

August 12 - August 18, 1995

Leaguer, will serve as Chairman of the 75th
Anniversary Celebration.

"Serving as Chairman of the Negro
Leagues’ 75th. Anniversary Celebration is a
thrill and an honor," said Aaron.. Seventy-
five years ago Hall of Fame manager and
player Andrew "Rube" Foster convened a
meeting of owners of independent black
professional teams at the Paseo YMCA in
Kansas City. At this historic meeting the
group formed the first successful black
league--the Negro National League.

Because of the notorious "gentleman's
agreement" that barred blacks from Major
League competition, the Negro Leagues
would, for more than a generation, provide
the only opportunity for these men to play
the game they loved. Major League
Baseball's color barrier would not be bro-
ken until Jackie Robinson took the field
for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum,
located in the 18th and Vine Historical
District in Kansas City, is dedicated to pre-
serving and disseminating the history of
black baseball in. America.

Museum exhibits spotlight the achieve-
ments of many of the Negro League's
brightest stars, including Hall of Famers
Leroy "Satchel" Paige, James "Cool Papa"
Bell, Josh Gibson, Roy Dandridge, Ernie
Banks, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and many
others. Longtime Kansas City Monarchs
player and manager John "Buck" O'Neil, star
of Ken Burns' 10-part television series
Baseball, serves as Chairman of the Board
of the Museum.

tivities and tickets, call 816-221-1920.


Highlights In Negro Leagues
Baseball History


1867 - The "Gentlemen" Make An Agree-

The Civil War was scarcely over when the
first black baseball teams squared off in
Brooklyn in 1867. The Philadelphia
Excelsiors triumphed over the Brooklyn

Uniques in a contest billed as "the champi-

onship of colored clubs." That same year, a
black Philadelphia team named the Pythians
organized and was immediately rejected
for admission into the National Associa-
tion of Base Ball Players, America's first
organized league and an ancestor of today's
Major. League Baseball. Thus began a
"gentlemen's agreement” that would bar
men of color from the game for the next
80 years. |

The first professional black club was or-
ganized in 1885 when New Yorker Frank
P. Thompson formed the Cuban Giants. The
club was the class of black baseball in the
early days and regularly triumphed over
white professional teams. Other eminent
black teams were formed, including the
Philadelphia Orions, the Boston Resolutes
and the Sr. Louis Black Stockings.

1901 - A New Generation Takes To The

At the turn of the century, legendary
manager John McGraw attempted to break
the color barrier by signing a light-com-
plexioned black man, Charlie Grant, to a
Baltimore Oriole contract. With a new alias
of Charlie Tokohama, Grant passed as a
Cherokee until discovered -- and subse-
quently was banned -- by White Sox presi-
dent Charlie Comiskey. This action gave
birth to a new generation of independent
black teams for the new century.

With the great migration of blacks from
southern farms to northern factories, the
booming cities of the north became hot-
beds of black baseball. Chicago became a
focal point,and baseball pioneer Andrew
"Rube" Foster formed his Giants club in the
windy City. He billed his Leland Giants as
"The Greatest Aggregation of Colored Base
Ball Players in the World," and his team's
1910 record - 123 wins, 6 losses - support
Rube's claim.

New teams were born in Indianopolis,
Brooklyn, Darby, Pa. and Philadelphia, and
top stars included fireballer "Smokey" Joe
Williams, Joh Henry "Pop" Lloyd and home
run king Louis Santop.

Woman-Owned Business Awarded
Construction Contract At JIA

Construction of lower level
pedistrian crosswalks and pave-
ment markings at Jacksonville In-
ternational Airport (JIA) has been
awarded to a woman-owned busi-
ness, Bentley Construction Com-
pany, Inc., by the Jacksonville Port
Authority (JAXPORT). The project
meets goals of 100% participation
set by JAXPORT's Office of Dis-
advantaged and Minority Compli-
ance Programs under the
Authority's disadvantaged, minor-
ity and woman-owned business
(DBE, MBE, WBE) enterprise pro-
gram. This is the first 100% DBE/
MBE/WBE construction project
this year awarded by JAXPORT.

WBE business enterprise pro-
gram continues to have a suc-
cessful year with certification of 27
new firms since January and more
than $623,426 in contracts
awarded to certified firms. Project
goals for the program are based
upon the scope of work, subcon-
tracting opportunities that are
available within the projects and
the availability of JAXPORT-cer-
tified firms to perform a portion of
the work required under the con-

"JAXPORT continues its com-
mitment to maintaining a strong
program for utilizing minority and
woman-owned businesses," said
JAXPORT managing director Cliff
Mendoza. "This is just one ex-
ample of the dedication of our
employees to working together to
identify projects in which these
businesses can participate.”

Bentley Construction, a Jack-
sonville-based building contractor,
was established in 1973 by com-
pany president Carol Bentley. The
firm is also certified under UCAP,
the Unified Certification Applica-
tion Process, which provides an
opportunity for review of DBE,

Recently the City's Consumer
Affairs Division has received many
inquires concerning the legitimacy
and registration status of chari-
table organization. The City's
Consumer Affairs Division urges
consumers who wish to contrib-
ute to the cause of a charitable
organization to give, but give
wisely. Ultimately, itis your money
and your contribution. Make it

Municipal Code Chapter 694,
requires that charitable organiza-
tions desiring to solicit contribu-
tions within the city or have funds
solicited in their behalf, must be
registered and permitted with the
Consumer Affairs Division.

While most charitable organiza-
tion are legitimate operations, it
pays to be careful.

The Division offers the follow-
ing tips before you give:

1. Always call the division to
check if the charity is registered
at 630-3667. Know who is asking
you for money.

2. Florida law gives you the
right to request and receive a copy
of a charity's financial report be-
fore donating. Ask For It! A le-
gitimate organization won't have
a problem with your request.

3. Ask the charity why it is ask-
ing for donations. What purpose
will be served? Ask questions,

United Optical Outlet

* Over 1,000 Frames To choose
_ From At This Place
* One Year Manufacturers Warranty

* 30 Years Serving Jacksonville Needs



and do not donate until you get
satisfactory answers.

4. Be wary of organizations
who use pressure tactics and in-
timidation in order to receive your

donation. Don't be pressured into .

making a donation immediately.
5. Never give cash!

6. Charitable organization and
professional solicitors are re-
quired to register with the State
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services. You can also
check the organization's registra-
tion status with the state by call-

"For Many Mentally Impaired Residents, It's A "Haven "

By Linda Mitchell Harper

Part I

Historic Springfield has its
share of grand scaled, graciously
ornamented, palatial dwelling

Because of its vast array of
architectural designs of homes
(mostly inspired during the "Vic-
torian Era") the neighborhood was
the very first in the city to be des-
ignated as a "Historic District" by
the National Register of Historic

Coupled with the grand old
homes and public buildings
(churches, schools, retail
shops...etc) is the natural beauty
of the neighborhood. Most noted
is the giant oaks that form cano-
pies above the streets below
(some are still paved with brick).

Another natural attraction that
gives the neighborhood a sense
of serenity is the park system that
spans throughout the area. In one
part its called Confederate Park,
at another point its referred to as
Klutho Park. And some call it
Springfield park which was once
the site of the Jacksonville Zoo.

After the "White Flight" that
was prevalent across the country
in the 60's and 70's urban areas
like Springfield were abandoned,
therefore subjecting the houses to
ruin and vandalism. As for its lilly
white pristine claim to fame, one
could easily conclude that it was
"Gone with The Wind."

Federal Judge Says Gender Balance Low Unconstitutional

(AP) The state will appeal a fed-
eral judge's ruling that a state law
allocating seats for women and
minorities on panels that nominate
judicial candidates was unconsti-

The judge's ruling came in a
challenge by a Jupiter lawyer who

wanted the Florida Bar to pick him
to fill an opening on the Judicial
Nominating Commission that rec-
ommends candidates for seats on
the state's 4th District Court of

Early Mallory sued Bar offi-
cials after they said they couldn't
consider him for the JNC opening

because the 1991 law required
them to fill the position with “a
member of a racial or ethnic mi-
nority group or a woman.”

In his ruling, U.S. District
Judge Kenneth Ryskamp said the
idea that it's necessary to promote
diversity in Florida's judiciary
“rests on pure speculation and

unfounded presumptions” since
Judicial nominating commissions
do not themselves appoint judges
but only recommend appoint-
ments to the governor.

“It is difficult to see how the
statutory race and gender quota
in question advances its intended
goals with any degree of precision

or certainty,” Ryskamp wrote July

The ruling is effective in
Florida's southern federal district,
which includes nine counties in
South Florida.

George Waas, an assistant
attorney general, said Wednesday
the state would appeal Ryskamp’s

vice, you are eligible to enter a
special program called Retired
Reservist SGLI, which you can
retain until age 61 or until you be-
gin receiving retired pay. Another
option is to convert SGLI to a

ANSWER: As of December
1992, VGLI can be renewed ev-
ery five years and can be kept for
life. At each renewal, the premium
may increase to coincide with the

eran also has the option to con-

Justice Department Sues Six South Florida
Apartment Owners Who Allegedly Refused
To Rent To African Americans And Others

owners of 13 South Florida apart-
ments complexes who allegedly
refused to rent to African Ameri-
cans, and in some cases to fami-
lies with children, were sued by
the Justice Department.

The suits, filed in U.S. District
Court in Miami, June 12, stem
from a fair. housing testing pro-
gram that the Justice Department
began conducting in the area over
two years ago.

“We are committed to fighting
housing discrimination which far
too often goes uncovered," said
Assistant Attorney General for
Civil Rights Deval L. Patrick.
“Today's actions should warn all
housing providers that housing
discrimination is no longer im-
mune to.detection.”

Under the Justice Department's
nationwide testing program,
trained pairs of African American
and white persons posing as pro-
spective tenants inquired about
available rental units. By compar-
ing the experiences of the testers
investigators discovered that mi-
norities were treated less favor-
ably than whites.

' With the new cases, the test-
ing program has produced 26
suits in seven states, including
Ohio, Michigan, California, South
Dakota, Indiana, Missouri and
Florida. The action, involving 13
apartment complexes with more
than 900 rental units, represents
the largest group of cases brought

under the program since it was
initiated. Currently, the Justice
department is conducting testing
in about a dozen cities.

The six suits charge the own-
ers of 11 complexes in Boca
Raton and two complexes in
Kendall with violating the Fair
Housing Act. Both engaging in a
pattern of discrimination on the
basis of race. The suits alleged
that, among other things, the de-
fendants told black testers that no
apartments were available while
telling white testers that they were.
Four suits also alleged the own-
ers discriminated against families
with children. Shortly after Hurri-
cane Andrew struck, the Justice
Department and the U.S.
Attorney's office in Miami began
looking into complaints of discrimi-
nation against African Americans
displaced by the storm. Last Sep-
tember, the Justice Department
brought its first case as a result of
the joint effort. That case, against
the Natura Development in
Deertield Beach, is currently
pending in federal court.

"One of our community's
strength is its diversity,. In build-
ing upon this tremendous asset,
we have the duty to address ille-
gal discrimination in any form in
which it might appear," said
Kendall Coffey, U.S. Attorney in
Miami. "This action challenges
discrimination in housing - one of
our most fundamental needs and
a key priority in our community."

Today's complaint seek orders

preventing the owners and man-
agers from engaging in futher dis-
crimination and requiring them to
pay damages to any identified vic-
tims as well as civil penalties.
Under federal law, a court may
require each defendant to pay a
civil penalty of up to 0 $50,000 for
the first violation and 4100,00 for
subsequent violations.
The Boca Raton complex include
the Forum Apartments, Camino
Verde Apartments, Camino Del
Sol Apartments, Camino Place
Apartments, Golden Palms apart-
ments, Camino Palms Apart-
ments, Camino Woods Apart-
ments, the Boca Real Apartments,
Boca Manor Apartments, Boca
Villa Apartments, and Gateway
Plaza apartments. The Kendall
complexes are the Meadows
Apartments and the Village of
Dadeland Apartments.

HOPE, a local Miami Fair hous-
ing organization contracted with
the Justice Departments to con-
duct some of the tests.

Individuals who believe they
may have been the victims of
housing discrimination at any of
the complexes should call

Banneker Scholoarship Program
for black students. The Banneker
scholarships were created in
1978. The University of Maryland
made the scholarships exclusively
from black undergraduates in
1988. The case was in the courts
as a result of a student of Hispanic
origin who sued the university
because he was not eligible for the
Banneker Scholarship.

* The federal Appellate Court
had reversed the lower court and
sided with the student. The Mary-
iand Attomey General's Office on
behalf of the university argued in
the lower courts that past institu-
tional racist practices had ad-
versely affected the recruitment
and retention of black students
and that special remedies like the
scholarships were still needed to
help erase the past disparities that
still existed. As one of the origi-
hators of the "scholarships" |

fact that institutional racism has
continued to permeate the univer-

retention up to this day docu-
mented by black students and fac-

provisions for Hispanics based
scholarships. In fact, the
Banneker scholarships did not
originally exclude other minorities.
Most strikingly, the university did

nority recruitment office in 1979,
though the office had met with
some success including helping to

increase minority undergraduate
enrollment. The Banneker pro-

gram was specifically aimed at

students heavily recruited by elite
universities-a smaller population
out of the larger population of
recruitable black students.

As an administrator and Presi-
dent of the Black Faculty and Staff
supported by and working with
protesting students, i and others
had demanded that the university
address its institutional racism, i.e.
helping to prevent significant in-
creases in minority enrollment;

ment; biased faculty who believed
blacks were inferior and could do
no better than "C" work; and a
hostile campus institutional.

unadressed issues helped to push

All contributed heavily to the

continuing legacy of the university
saying to black students both en-
rolled and those being recruited
that "you are not welcome." No
kudos should be given to the uni-
versity for its less than 100 per-
cent efforts to recruit black stu-
dents. The federal government
under both parties are culpable of
their failures to hold the university
to its modest affirmative action
plan over these last 22 years. And
the courts - filled with "those im-
partial jurists- have continued to
cave into the right swing of the
affirmative action, making quotas

White Men Still Running
Indiana's Top Companies

ness leaders across the state
deny there is intentional discrimi-
nation against minorities and
women even though there are no
minorities and just nine women
among the highest-ranking execu-
tives, according to a newspaper's

With few exceptions, the 383
highest-ranking executives at the
state’s 93 publicly traded compa-
nies fit a similar profile: white and
male, according to a study by The
Indianapolis Star.

And except for six foreigners,
including five working at an Indi-
ana company’s operations in Bra-
zil, all of the executives are white.

“That's absolutely God-aw-
ful,” said Richard Bottoms, an In-
dianapolis black activist. “It's even
worse than | thought.”

Though companies are hiring
and promoting more women and
minorities into middle-manage-
ment jobs, the study shows the
glass ceiling that keeps them from
top positions remains unbroken.

“From the outside looking in,
we see a private reserve for white
males,” said Rep. William
Crawford, D-Indianapolis, a mem-
ber of the Indiana Black Legisla-
tive Caucus.

The Star's study covered ex-
ecutives identified in proxy state-
ments of publicly traded compa-
nies. The statements must be
mailed to shareholders once a

The newspaper compiled a
list of 383 executives, and mailed
each subject a survey asking his
or her gender, race and/or ethnic
background. About one-fourth re-
sponded. Reporters followed up
with phone calls to the executives,
their superiors, or others who
knew them, until the race and
ethnicity of each executive was

a ca SL
. .


Of the six foreign citizens
listed, five work for South Bend-
based Capco Automotive Prod-
ucts Corp., which has virtually all
its operations in Brazil. The sixth
is a Japanese executive for Na-
tional Steel Co. in Mishawaka,
which is 51 percent owned by a
Japanese steel company.

The remaining 377 are white
and all but nine are men.

The study does not cover ex-
ecutives at privately owned com-
panies or top officials in govern-
ment or nonprofit corporations.

Nationally, the picture is simi-
lar. Minorities hold 3 percent of
senior management jobs, and
women 5 percent, at the nation’s
largest industrial companies, ac-
cording to a March report by the
Glass Ceiling Commission. Con-
gress created the bipartisan panel
in 1991 to identify and recommend
ways to eliminate barriers to the
promotion of women and minori-

“The world at the top of the
corporate hierarchy does not yet
look anything like America,” the
report reads. “Nor does the evi-
dence indicate that the glass ceil-
ing is a temporary phenomenon.”

Some executives say the dis-
parity is due to a dearth of women
and minority executives with the
right experience _ especially
profit-and-loss responsibility _ to
move into senior positions.

“It's tough, if you're looking in
Indiana, to find people with that
experience,” said W. Scott
Webber, president of Software
Artistry Inc., an Indianapuvlis-
based software company.

Black leaders dismiss that

“That even sounds like a
crock,” said William G. Mays,
president of Mays Chemical Co.



in Indianapolis, one of the
country’s largest minority-owned
businesses. “How did Mays
Chemical grow from zero to $100
million in sales when virtually all
its leadership at the top is black?”

It is more likely that top ex-
ecutives at Indiana’s top compa-
nies prefer working with people
like themselves, and are not look-
ing hard enough for minority can-
didates, said Jesse Moore, presi-
dent of the Indianapolis Black
Chamber of Commerce.

“It's just human nature that
people are more comfortable with
people who look like them and talk
like them,” Moore said. “But
sooner or later, Indiana compa-
nies are going to have to catch up
with the population.”

Blacks make up 7.8 percent
of Indiana’s population, and 22.6
percent of the Indianapolis met-
ropolitan area’s population.
Women are 51.5 percent of the
state’s population.

Bottoms said blame for the
lack of minorities and women in
power “lies most clearly with the
companies that talk a good game
about diversity but do not exercise
it. ... They haven't done diddly.”

sal African Flag Day. Marcus
Garvey was the greatest mass
leader that the Pan American Na-
tion has ever produced. Ata time
when only three African nations in
the world, Egpyt, Ethiopia and
Liberia, were semi-independent,
Garvey boldly proclaimed that Af-
rican people must rise up to liber-
ate our homeland to create a base
for global Black Power - "Europe
for the European, Asia for the
Asians, Africa for the African at
home and abroad.

Garvey created the Universal
Negro Improvement Association
and African Communities League
(UNIA-ACL) to promote his phi-
losophy of African redemption and
to create the infrastructure for an
emerging Black Nation. The UNIA
held its first International Conven-
tion of the Negro People's of the
World in Harlem beginning August
1, 1920. On August 2, Marcus
Garvey addressed 25,000 Afri-
cans in Madison Square Garden.
At Garvey's urging, this historic
convention adopted the Red,
Black and Green Flag as the offi-
cial flag of the African race: Red
for "the color of the blood which
men must shed for their redemp-
tion and liberty, "Black for "the
color of a noble and distinguished
race to which we belong," and
Green for " the luxuriant vegeta-
tion of our motherland." 1955
marks the 75th anniversary of the
Black Liberation Flag.

Last year, the idea of Universal

African Flag Day began to take
hold as the December 12th move-
ment in New York embraced the
idea and organized a series Flag
Day activities on Garvey' birthday.
The Garvey family also took note
of the concept and expressed an
interest in spreading the idea na-
tionally and internationally.

This year Garvey's sons, Dr.
Julius Garvey and Marcus Garvey
Jr. have taken the initiative to cre-
ate a committee to Promote Uni-
versal African Flag Day. A com-
memorative Journal has been
prepared with articles from promi-
nent African scholars and activists
including: Dr. John Henrik Clarke,
Tony Martin, Molefe Asante,
Elombe Brath, Dr. Julius Garvey
and Marcus Garvey Jr.

Though the focal point for the
Universal Flag Day organizing is
in New York City, where Garvey
established his headquarters and
developed a formidable base, the
Committee is anxious for Black
organization in other cities in the
U.S. and other countries to em-
brace the idea and hold Flag Day
ceremonies and other political ac-

Among the organizations which
have endorsed Universal African
Flag Day are: The Universal Ne-
gro Improvement Association,
The National Black United Front,
the National Malcom X Com-
memoration Commission, The
National Coalition for Reparations
for Blacks in America, The De-
cember 12th Movement and Cam-
paign for a New Tomorrow.

On August 17, in New York, the
Universal Flag Day Activities will

begin with a Flag Raising Cer-
emony in the Africa Court in
Queens Park. The ceremony will
broadcast live on the Drive Time
Dialogue Show on radio station

Other Flag raising ceremonies
and Flag Day activities will follow
in Brooklyn and Harlem. On the
same day, a Flag Raising Cer-
emony will also occur in Jamaica,
the birthplace of Marcus Garvey,
where he is recognized as a na-
tional hero. Hopefully, Africans all
over the U.S., Canada, the Carib-
bean and Africa will get busy pro-
moting/building Universal African
Flag Day as a cultural and politi-
cal event to promote the philoso-
phy of Marcus Garvey.

Garvey intended that the Red,
Black and Green serve as a uni-
fying symbol for African people the
world over and as an expression

of Pan African self-reliance, self- .

determination, and Nationhood.
Nothing more than the current rise
to hegemony of the radical right,
the proliferation of racist hate
groups and militias and the overt
assault on the “civil rights” of Afri-
cans in America demonstrate the
urgent need for African people to
have unifying symbols to catalyze
the Black Liberation Movement.

Prepare to celebrate Garvey's
birthday. Letthe Flag that Garvey
gave to African people, the Red,
Black and Green be in evidence
everywhere like a mighty river
determined to reach its destina-
tion - freedom, self-determination,
nationhood. "Up you mighty race,
you can accomplish what you

Nation of Islam (NOI) leader
Minister Louis Farrakhan intends
to bring one million black men to
the nation's capital "to petition the
government on behalf of our

In sharp departure from the tra-
ditional philosophy of the NOI's
founder, the Honorable Elijah
Muhammad of keeping involve-
ment with government to a mini-
mum, Farrakhan has teamed up
with the NAACP's former execu-
tive director, Benjamin F. Chavis,
to send a message to government
officials in regards to "the deterio-
rating conditions in the U.S. for
black people in general, and black
men in particular."

In a press conference at the
march's "strategy headquarters,"
Farrakhan outlined his concerns
about: The government's shift to
the right; jobs leaving America; the
deterioration of the nation's inner
cities, crime and violence in the
cities, the alarming homicide rate
among African American men and
the disrespect of the government
toward black elected officials.

The 61 - year-old Farrakhan
said that at the end of the day of
the march, "America will know
what we are all about and they can
begin to include us or tell us di-
rectly we are not wanted here."

The Minister has been criss-
crossing the country for months
addressing large audiences of
men, urging them to close ranks
around the myrid of social prob-

lems confronting urban areas
and to illustrate their power and
concern through this march.

The Million Man March is
scheduled for Oct. 16 in Washing-
ton. The date is a Monday. Such
a large assembledge will
undoubtly close down the city on
a work day. Many believe that
government officials and federal
law enforcement officers will find
reasons to not let such an event
take place, but Farrakhan says,
"We're coming anyway."

With Ben Chavis sitting at his
side, Farrakhan also announced
that on the day of the march black
women should stay home to ini-
tiate a "shut down of the country."
He also said he is asking black
youth not to attend school that day
or black sports figures and enter-
tainers not to engage in their nor-
mal labors on that day. He said
these actions should be taken by
blacks to illustrate the wrongs that
America has committed against
us and to show that reparations
are due for these legitimate griev-

The Nation of Islam leader also

said that the march day would be
"a day of atonement," allowing
black men to contemplate their
condition as well as that of the
race. "The coldness with which
we brutalize one another, mistreat
our women and abuse our chil-
dren -- this must cease," he told a
group of over 30 black journalists.

Rev. Chavis, a principal coor-

dinator of the march, has
launched a new national organi-
zation to continue the promotion
of a black nationalist agenda he
espoused but was rejected by the
NAACP leadership. Chavis' new
entity, the National African Ameri-
can Leadership Summit (NAALS),
held a conference in Houston in
June, with more than 200 groups
represented. According to
Chavis, the NAALS formalize the
unity summits he began before he
was fired as NAACP executive
director last summer. Despite his
firing, Chavis is proving he has a
significant following among young
black people, both on college
campuses and in housing projects
.and in street gangs.

Minister Farrakhan outpolled
all other leading African American
figures as the nation's top black
leader in a Black Press Poll last
fall. Now that he and Chavis have
made their pact, the two have the
backing of a broad cross-section
of African American religious, po-
litical education and business

Can't Help Lovin’ Lonette

By Marc Warren Special to the NNPA

NEW YORK - On stage at the
Gershwin Theater in New York, as
the orchestra's overture begins,
actress Lonette McKee rushes to
get herself ready for the demand-
ing but rewarding role of ‘Julie’ in
the Tony award-winning revival of
“Show Boat." Once on stage, her
personality exudes a special
blend of sultriness and spice
which makes her performance
extremely unique.

This superb actress is recreat- -

ing the role that gamered her a
Tony nominated role in 1983. Her
performance has earned her nu-
merous praise and glowing re-

views. She seduces the audience

at each performance with her
commanding rendition of "Bill* and
"Can't Help Lovin That man,”
which is the reason that this multi-
talented actress is - yet again - the

toast of Broadway.

How does this extraordinary
actress feel about the overwhelm-
ing raves? | feel very blessed and
very honored, "she says." It's a
wonderful experience. It's always
nice to be acknowledged for your

When McKee first stepped into
the role of ‘Julie’ back in 1983,
what she didn't realize was that
she was breaking down a barrier
that prevented many black ac-
tresses from portraying the dra-
matic role. "| didn't realize that it
was ground-breaking at that time,
"she says." | don't think we can
afford to look at ourselves like that.
That's for other people to say, not

us about ourseives.’

McKee made her Broadway
debut on "The Great White Way"
in 1981, in the musical "The first."

She was cast as Jackie
Robinson's wife opposite co-star
David Alan Grier of "In Living
Color" fame. "Show Boat" is the
second musical in which she has
performed. So far, this talented
performer has found musical the-
ater to be very demanding.

"It's a hard medium to workin,
“she says." It's very difficult work
physically. It takes a lot out of

McKee's claim to fame began
at age 23, when she was cast in
the popular film "Sparkle." She
shared the limelights with cast
members Irene Cara, Dawn
Smith, Dorian Harewood, and
Phillip Michael Thomas.

Her critically acclaimed perfor-
mance in the movie led her to her
next role in the move Way

Over the years, many actors
and actresses such as Alfre

Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn
and Sidney Poitier have been in-

spiration to McKee as a performer.
«Many of the great actors and ac-
tresses have inspired me, "she

By Dr. Charles W. Faulkner


The gun in unfriendly hands,
pointed at your nose. If you are
robbed, after having looked down
the barrel of a gun, and you live to
tell about it, you probably tremble
every time that you think about
that experience.

| have looked down the barrel
of a gun before and | often won-
der why | am still here. | also wish
that | had a gun with me at the
time that one was pointed at me.
As ugly as the gun can be, it can
also serve a valuable purpose.
Just ask any police officer. The
gun gives him control over his en-
emies. The knowledge that he
has a gun is the sole reason that
others won't attack him.

In the ghetto, the peaceful poor
black citizen is not able to afford
a gun, so he is abused, victim-
ized by the thugs who hangout
on corners. Thisis one the
major reasons that black people
are shot or killed at a far greater
rate than whites. They are basi-
cally helpless.

During the recent major outcry
about guns, peaceful blacks were
turning in the few guns that they
could have used to protect them-
selves. On the other hand, whites
were buying as many of the most
advanced weapons as they could
afford. The Tec-9 ‘was their
weapon of choice. This mon-
strous machine gun is intended for
military use, but your white neigh-
bor has one. And | don't blame

I do blame blacks for having the
naive notion that they would be
safer without guns than they

would with them. There are not
enough police officers to protect

you. And the other citizens who
live in the suburbs are purchas-
ing guns so they can. Thugs are
never going to voluntarily give up
their guns. So, if law-abiding
blacks who live in the city give up
their guns, they will be the only
citizens to be without guns - and
they will have no way of protect-
ing themselves. And remember,
Republicans are advocating over-
turning The Brady Bill (a gun con-
trol law) and allowing people to
own as many guns as they desire.
One of these days, everyone may
have a baseball bat, except you.
Then, how are you going to de-
fend yourself? One of our largest
states will soon pass a law that
will allow every citizen to carry a

concealed weapon on the streets.
What will you do, if someone sim-

ply wants to shoot you because
they don't like the way you look?
If you are black, the police will
likely rule it'probable cause.”

Personally and seriously, | think
that all guns should be removed
from our society. This would be a
safer society. However, this soci-
ety is made more terrifying and
dangerous if only certain citizens
have guns. The average law-
abiding citizen has no weapon
with which to protect and defend

himself. The mood in this coun-
try, supported by the powers that
be House Speaker Newt Giingrich
(R-Ga.) and company is to arm
certain citizens. The political ef-
fort in the major cities is to remove
the guns from the hands of essen-
tially law-abiding citizens.

Will Lois wed Clark?
Hatcher, Cain are mum


Superman always guarded his
secret identity closely.

But that is small potatoes
compared to how tight-lipped
Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain
are being about the big ques-
tion on Lois & Clark: The New
Adventures of Superman.

The hit series, currently in
reruns Sundays on ABC, ended
its second season in a cliff-
hanger, when Clark Kent
(Cain) proposed to Lois Lane
(Hatcher). The episode ended
before Lois gave her answer.

“Actually, we shot three dif-
ferent endings,” Hatcher re-
veals. “And I didn’t know what
they were going to air until 1
watched it when the rest of the
country did.

“Now 1 do. But they’ve had
me brainwashed for today’s
purposes only,” she laughs.

If the actress is feeling play-
ful, she and her co-star are enti-
tled. After iffy ratings during
its first season, Lois & Clark
began to draw larger audiences
last year by focusing on the
romance between the two prin-
cipal characters. The potent
chemistry between Hatcher and
Cain has some viewers asking
the inevitable question: Is art
imitating life here?

Hatcher, who married actor
Jon Tenney (Equal Justice) last
year, bursts into peals of laugh-
ter at the notion.

“Just a couple of days ago we
were shooting a scene, and |
just said, ‘Isn’t it funny that we
have this chemistry on-screen,
and everybody thinks we're
this cute couple, and we're just
not attracted to each other in
real life?’ ” she explains. “And
he sort of went, ‘We're not?’

That should have come as no
surprise to Cain, who says his
co-star made a pithy appraisal
of him after their very first

“The first time she met me,
she goes, ‘Oh, all right, pretty
package, but there’s nothing
upstairs,’ ”” he recalls.

“He's exaggerated this over

two years. That’s not what |
said,” Hatcher says, then adds:

“I never called (him) a pretty,

The pair's. affectionate teas-
ing is a result of sharing the
grueling shooting schedule of
their series, a minimum of 15
hours a day, at least five days a

week. Cain says drily he “may

have made a mistake” in agree-




ing to play two leading roles in
a weekly hour series.

Their sweat has paid off
handsomely. A publicity photo
ol Hatcher wrapped in Super-
man’s cape is the most fre-
quently downloaded picture on
the Internet, and she has feature
film offers to consider.

Cain is besieged by young
autograph seekers everywhere
he goes, recently wrote and
produced a pilot for a celebrity
profile series on ABC and will
write his second Lois & Clark

script next season (he penned
last year’s Christmas episode).

“It’s a virtual reality script
and the villain is a computer
person who downloads a lot of
pictures of Teri on the Inter-
net,” the actor jokes. “No, it’s
actually a virtual world that is
created and some things hap-
pen inside there.”

Regardless of whether wed-
ding bells ring for Lois and
Clark, Hatcher is optimistic.

“I think the first couple of
scripts I’ve read are the best of
anything ... in the last couple of
years,” she says happily. “I’m
real excited about this year.”

‘Halle Berry Struts With Male Strip Dancers;

Insists It's OK With Baseball Star Husband

By Barry Cooper

Beautiful black actress Halle
Berry, and her baseball star hus-
band, Richard Justice, are finding
themselves in the spotlight a lot.
Newspaper tabloids such as the
National Enquirer have been re-
porting that their marriage is on
the rocks.

Recently, the Enquirer fired an-

other salvo:

It published pictures of Berry
dancing in a nightclub with scant-

ily clad male strip dancers.

She was in Hawaii making a
movie. Her husband was back in
the mainland playing ball for the
Atlanta Braves. Berry was so up-
set by the Enquirer's report that
she made two phone calls: One

to her husband to explain what
she was doing at the club, and
another to the Atlanta-Journal
Constitution newspaper to deny
that her marriage was shaky.

"For David's sake, it's very im-
portant that we don't let this new
set of rumors get so out of hand
that they affect his baseball, and
people at the stadium start say-
ing all kinds of crazy things," Berry
told the paper.

She recently completed the
filming of "Race the Sun” in Aus-
tralia and Hawaii, and will soon
return to the couple's home base
of Los Angeles to begin filming
"Executive Decision."

The National Enquirer pub-
lished five photographs of Berry,
28, frolicking with two scantily clad

male dancers in a Honolulu strip
club. The article alleges that Berry
and Justice are on the verge of

The article also said that Berry
caught Justice with another
woman last spring. The Enquirer
suggested that Berry danced with
the strippers to get back at Jus-

"All false," Berry told the Jour-
nal-Constitution. She told the pa-
per that her strip club visit was an
innocent way of letting off steam
with friends at the end of filming
“Race the Sun."

"We're married, but we're cer-
tainly allowed to go out and have
fun. I'm not threatened by my
husband." Berry said.


Dallas Cowboys Next Stop For Sanders?

‘Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry
Jones says there is one player

he'd like to add to his talent-rich

Deion Sanders.

The Cowboys are among the
NFL teams courting Sanders, who

By Larry Lucas

According to the American
Cancer Society, African American
men have the highest rate in the
world of cancer of the prostate. a
walnut-sized gland located below
the bladder. The disease is almost
twice as common among blacks
than whites and, partly because
blacks are generally diagnosed
later, they have a higher death rate.
While all men over 50 are consid-
ered “at risk” for this disease,
African American men are consid-
ered “at risk” when they reach 40.

African American men 40 and
older should undergo annual tests
for prostate cancer. The tests are
necessary since this disease often
does not show symptoms for many
years. When symptoms do occur,
they may include:

* Frequent urination, especially
at night.

« Inability to urinate. or trouble
starting or holding back urination.
* Pain or a burning feeling dur-
ing urination.

* Blood or urine in semen.

* Painful ejaculation.

* Persistent pain in the lower

back. hips or upper thighs.

These symptoms may not mean
prostate cancer. but they should be
checked out by a doctor.

Prostate cancer is generally
treated three ways: surgery to
remove the tumors; radiation
therapy to kill the cancer cells: and
drug treatments to stop cancer cells
from growing.

Research-based pharmaceutical
companies are currently develop-
ing 24 new medicines for prostate
cancer. Eight of these medicines
are in the final phase of human
tests or have been submitted to the
Food and Drug Administration for
approval. In addition, the National
Cancer Institute has one medicine
in development for this disease.

Researchers are also trying to
discover the cause of this disease,
but so far they have reached no
firm conclusions. Some studies
suggest that a diet high in fat
increases the risk of prostate cancer,
but more research needs to be done
to confirm this.

Since there’s no known way to
prevent prostate cancer. the best
course of action is to get annual
checkups. Meanwhile, pharmaceu-

search for new medicines to

cure—this disease.

Help in Getting a Quality Mammogram

(NAPS) —Mammograms can be
remarkably effective in detecting
breast cancer early and saving
lives, if the place doing the mam-
mograms meets certain stan-
dards. Now, women can find
nearby mammography facilities
certified by the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration by calling
toll-free 1-800-4-CANCER.

Breast cancer is the second lead-
ing cause of cancer deaths among
American women but early detection
can help lower that mortality rate.

A mammogram, a special x-ray
exam of the breasts, is the best way
to find breast cancer early, when it
can be treated most successfully.

Widespread screening of women
over 50, followed by prompt treat-
ment when needed can reduce
breast breast cancer deaths by as
much as 30 percent—but the mam-
mogram must be accurate. Some
younger women may also benefit
from a mammogram, and should
talk to their doctor.

To ensure that mammography
centers—whether in a hospital, doc-
tor’s office, mobile van, or military
base—meet quality standards,
Congress passed the Mammography
Quality Standards Act, which
FDA is implementing.

The law ensures that each
facility has up-to-date equipment,
specially trained personnel to do
the mammogram and interpret
the results, and a quality control
program. The facility also must
be inspected annually by FDA-
trained inspectors.

Mammography equipment has
improved over the years, and the
result is an image that reveals
many more of the internal struc-

tures, making more accurate and
earlier diagnosis possible.

With advances in mammogra-
phy equipment and techniques,
the average radiation dose
has declined dramatically, while
image quality has improved.

Who should get a mammogram?

e Experts generally agree that
for women over 50 (and some
younger women as well), mammaog-
raphy screening every one or two
years can reduce the risk of breast
cancer death by about one-third.

* To decide if a mammogram is
right for you, ask your doctor.

® Medicare pays part of the cost of
mammograms for its beneficiaries.

* A woman of any age who
finds a lump or sees any other
change in their breasts should see
her doctor right away.

For the location of FDA-certified
mammography facilities, call the
National Cancer Institute’s infor-
mation line: 1-800-4-CANCER
(1-800-422-6237) weekdays between
9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

Beware Of Serious Liver Disease

(NAPS)—While it is commonly
believed that people with viral
hepatitis, a serious liver disease,
have yellow, or jaundiced, skin
and eyes, you can actually feel
and look healthy and have the dis-
ease without even knowing it.
This year alone, some 350,000
Americans will become infected
with hepatitis B and C, the most
common and more dangerous
forms of the disease. All types of
hepatitis cause the liver to become
inflamed, and many, if left
untreated, may lead to permanent
damage to the liver.

What Is Hepatitis?

You should be aware of hepati-
tis A, B and C and how you may
be unwittingly putting yourself
at risk through normal, everyday
activities. Generally, people get
hepatitis A from eating contami-
nated food and water. This type
of hepatitis does not become
chronic. Hepatitis B and C, how-
ever, are more serious and enter
the body through the blood-
stream. If you have used intra-
venous drugs, gotten a tattoo,
engaged in body piercing, or had
a blood transfusion prior to 1990,
you may be at risk for hepatitis B
and C. Fortunately, all donated
blood is now screened for hepati-
tis B and C, and the risk of con-
tracting the disease through a
blood transfusion today is less
than one percent. Hepatitis B can
be transmitted sexually. For now,
medical studies on the trans-
mission of hepatitis C from
sexual contact are conflicting.
Researchers also believe hepati-
tis may be passed from one per-
son to another by sharing com-
mon household items such as
razors and toothbrushes.

Sometimes people with hepati-
tis experience Symptoms such as

fatigue, mild fever, aching joints
and muscles, nausea and loss of
appetite. But the majority of peo-
ple have no symptoms. If hepati-
tis B or C is not treated, there
may be a risk of developing a
more serious, chronic condition.
Your doctor can perform a simple
blood test to measure liver
enzymes. If they are elevated,
further testing may be required
to make a diagnosis and pre-
scribe appropriate treatment.

Medications And
The Elderly

(NAPS)—Despite the popular
notion that memory inevitably
declines with aging, memory-relat-
ed complaints among the elderly
are neither universal nor simple to
interpret. According to a recent
Study published in the American
, Journal of Health-
System Pharmacy,
most older people
& believe they suc-
cessfully remem-
ber to take medi-
cation; elderly
J people who are
depressed or have

Joseph A.Oddis ;;fficulties caring
for themselves report more memo-
ry problems.

For most, success in remember-
ing to take medication is likely the
result of using memory strategies
that involve external cues, such as
taking pills with meals or at bed-
time, or putting each day’s medica-
tion in a pill divider. However, few
of those surveyed recognized those
practices as strategies that could
improve medication use.

Because of wide differences in
memory ability, the American
Society of Health-System Pharma-
cists recommends that health care
professionals and caregivers care-
fully assess whether older patients
are capable of remembering to take

“Good patient counseling that
includes direct questions about the
strategies patients will use to
remember their medication is a
key to ensuring that older patients
will remember to take medication,”
says ASHP Executive Vice Presi-
dent Joseph A. Oddis. “By focusing
on actual instances of remember-
ing or forgetting, a good pharma-
cist can often help a patient or

Helping Women With Fibroids

(NAPS)—Uterine fibroid tumors
(leiomyomata) are benign growths
of the smooth muscle in the uterus.
They affect one in four women aged
30 or older. Some women with
fibroid tumors experience no
symptoms; others can suffer from
problems including abnormal
bleeding, which can lead to ane-
mia, pelvic pain, pelvic pressure
and infertility.

Symptomatic uterine fibroid
tumors represent the most common
diagnosis leading to hysterectomy
(surgical removal of the uterus) in
the U.S. They account for nearly 30
percent of hysterectomies per-
formed in the U.S. Approximately
21 percent of patients undergoing a
hysterectomy for fibroid tumors are
anemic. Iron deficiency anemia,
which can occur with increased
vaginal bleeding over time, can be
associated with bleeding due to
fibroid tumors.

A drug called Lupron Depot® 3.75 mg
(leuprolide acetate for depot suspen-
sion) has recently received clearance
from the United States Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) for use in com-
bination with iron supplementation
as a presurgical treatment for
anemia caused by fibroid tumors.

“Women suffering from symp-
tomatic fibroid tumors often choose
surgery to resolve the problems such
as bleeding and pelvic pain that are
associated with the condition,” said
Thomas Stovall, M.D., associate pro-
fessor, Department of Obstetrics and
Gynecology, Bowman Gray School of
Medicine of Wake Forest University
in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
“For certain women, Lupron Depot
3.75 mg can relieve symptoms prior
to surgery, which can improve a


which can lead to anemia





patient’s quality of life and decrease
risks associated with fibroid
surgery by controlling bleeding.”

Lupron Depot 3.75 mg has been
indicated in combination with iron
therapy for up to three months as
preoperative treatment to raise
hemoglobin levels for women suffer-
ing from anemia due to fibroid
tumors. Because iron therapy alone
may increase hemoglobin levels,
Lupron Depot 3.75 mg is recom-
mended if response to iron therapy
is considered inadequate.

Clinical studies have shown that
Lupron Depot 3.75 mg, in com-
bination with iron supplementation,
improves hemoglobin levels of
patients with fibroid tumors
because bleeding is decreased. One
study found that after three
months of treatment, 80 percent
of patients with fibroid tumors
experienced relief from excessive
bleeding due to the condition.

Higher preoperative hemoglobin
levels are associated with a
decreased need for transfusion.
These higher values also increase
the possibility that a patient can
donate blood prior to surgery, a

procedure known as an autologous
blood donation. Surgeons may rec-
ommend autologous blood donation
prior to surgery to decrease the
minimal risk of contracting viral
hepatitis or HIV infection through
transfusions. In one clinical study,
75 percent of the patients with
fibroid tumors treated with Lupron
Depot 3.75 mg plus iron for three
months experienced a clinical
response that met the criterion
required for autologous blood
donation prior to surgery.

The most frequently reported
adverse events associated with
Lupron Depot 3.75 mg are related
to decreased estrogen levels. Side
effects include asthenia (weak-
ness), general pain, headaches,
hot flashes, sweats, edema, joint
disorder, depression, emotional
lability and vaginitis. Decreased
estrogen levels also may result in
a small loss in bone density over
the course of treatment, some of
which may not be reversible.
Estrogen levels return to normal
after treatment is discontinued.

Lupron Depot 3.75 mg is a
member of a class of drugs known
as gonadotrophin-releasing
hormone (GnRH) analogs. These
drugs temporarily decrease pro-
duction of estrogen, the hormone
that is believed to stimulate
growth of fibroid tumors. Lupron
Depot 3.75 mg is a once-a-month
injection that is given in the
physician’s office. Lupron Depot
3.75 mg has been marketed since
1990 for the management of
endometriosis, a gynecological
condition that can cause severe
pelvic pain and is associated with

Men Aren't Afraid To Ask...About Nutrition

(NAPS)—Men—about 3,000 of
them a month—pick up the phone
and call The American Dietetic
Association's Consumer Nutrition
Hot Line. One hotline caller
admits to craving chocolate.
Another dares to ask about flatu-
lence (gas). “Is there something I
can eat to make me taller?” hopes
a twenty-something man. “Does
eating grapefruit burn fat?” “How
can I fit a frosted donut into the
exchange list for diabetes?”

Their most popular food and
nutrition concerns are lowering
cholesterol, losing weight and con-
trolling diabetes. Many want the
name of a registered dietitian in
their area who can help them.
Others are determined to manage
on their own. Dietitians who staff
the hotline rely on up-to-date
resources and their own training
and experience to answer food and
nutrition questions and offer
sound nutrition advice.

In response to men’s growing
interest in food and health, and as
part of ADA’s “Winning Strategies”
men’s nutrition campaign, the hot-
line will focus on men’s nutrition
concerns throughout the month of
June. A special recorded message
explains how healthful eating and
physical activity habits are keys to
being fit. And, callers may be sur-
prised to learn that healthful eat-
ing can include personal favorites.

Callers can request a free fact
sheet that offers men even more
food for thought:

* Specific calorie requirements
for men depend on age, height,
weight and activity level. Men
ages 19 to 50 need 2,300 to 3,800

calories a day on average. Older
men need slightly less, around
2,000 to 3,200 calories a day.

e Men who drink three beers (or
glasses of wine or mixed drinks) a
day may be getting more than ten
percent of their calories from alco-
hol. Typical American men get
barely half the recommended
amount of dietary fiber. Fiber pro-
tects against heart disease, cancer,
constipation and hemorrhoids.

Activity—not only jogging and
aerobics, but walking, gardening,
climbing stairs, even getting up off
the couch to change the television
channel—stokes the metabolic fire
so calories burn faster.

The hotline (800-366-1655) fea-
tures four recorded messages in
English and one in Spanish from
8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Central
Time), Monday through Friday.
While messages change each month,
registered dietitians are available
to provide referrals and answer
questions weekdays from 9:00
a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Central Time).
Telecommunications Device for the
Deaf (TDD) Service is available from

Women At Risk For Health Problems

(NAPS)—According to a free

Free booklet offers help for
women’s health concerns.

Center for Substance Abuse Pre-

vention (CSAP), women are at espe-

cially high risk for health problems

caused by alcohol, tobacco and other |

drugs. For example, rates of lung
cancer, associated with chronic

According to CSAP, alcohol

physically affects women differ- :

ently than men. Because women
have less water in their bodies,
alcohol is less diluted and has a
greater impact. Women also
metabolize alcohol less efficiently,
making them even more vulnera-

ble to, its effects. And late stage
complications of alcoholism, such

as liver damage and hypertension,

can develop much sooner and with |

much less alcohol intake.

Substance abuse jeopardizes the -
health of a pregnant woman and |E


her unborn child, and has other
ramifications as well. It is associat-
ed with spousal abuse, child abuse,
and rape. Sex under the influence
can lead to sexually transmitted
diseases, including the AIDS virus.

College Credit Card Choices

by Janet Koehler, Executive
Director, Consumer Affairs,
AT&T Universal Card Services

(NAPS)—Should college stu-
dents have credit cards? The
answer lies in a sense of responsi-
bility that needs to be shared by

both card issuer and consumer.
Today, about
156 major credit
card issuers have
products aimed
specifically at col-
lege students.
They solicit cus-
tomers through
booths on cam-
7 Duses 7 by
i mail. er
Janet Koehler 4 companies
target students through their gen-

eral marketing process. Because of

all this activity, most students can
get a credit card while they are in

Is this explosion of choice and
opportunity good or bad?

That depends on the individual.
While it should go without saying
that a student should not have a
credit card if he or she cannot han-
dle the responsibility, credit card
issuers find college students as a
group to be good customers. The per-
centage that pays on time is roughly
the same as for the general popula-
tion. Holding a credit card and using
it wisely are beneficial; a credit card
makes purchases more convenient,
safer, and means stronger consumer
protections. More importantly, it can
be the first major step in building a
solid credit history. This record may
well determine the student's ability
to obtain a car loan, a mortgage, an
apartment lease or even a job.

For students—or anyone—to
enjoy these benefits, they must
understand the nature of credit
cards and the obligations of being
a card holder. The potential vul-
nerability of college students—
and the reason there is so much
debate about this—is that most of

Home-Based Businesses: Fully Insured?

(NAPS)—If you're one of the
more than 25 million Americans
whose home is where your small
business is, you could face going
out of business because of improp-
er insurance coverage.

The reason? In many cases
home-based businesses rely on
standard homeowners or renters
policies to cover their business prop-
erty. But, reports the Independent
Insurance Agents of America
(ITAA), many homeowners and
renters policies specifically exclude
losses from business activities.

Some home-based businesses
decide to pay a higher homeown-
ers or renters premium to over-
ride those exclusions, but industry
experts say that’s still insufficient
for home-based business needs.

“The bad news is that home-

owners policies—even those with
‘ special endorsements—often just
«don’t do the job,” said Peter van
i Aartrijk, ITAA vice president of
: communications.

+ Standard homeowners policies
+ also exclude liability coverage for
at-home businesses. The good
+news for home-based businesses is
: that independent insurance agents

them have never had credit before
and most have limited incomes.
As in all things, inexperience can
lead to mistakes.

Students who wish to use cred-
it cards must accept the responsi-
bility to educate themselves about
the nature of credit, and credit
cards in particular. Meanwhile, as
card issuers continue fighting to
sign up student customers, the
issuer’s responsibility is to
make this education easy and

Students have several alterna-
tives. One is getting an additional
card on their parents’ account. This
has the advantage of ease of access
and grants the student credit card
experience. It also gives parents a
strong incentive to educate their chil-
dren on the wise use of credit and
allows them to monitor account
usage. However, the student does
not establish a credit record in his
or her name.

Another way is for the student to
co-sign a card with his or her par-
ent. While allowing the same advan-
tages as above, students also estab-
lish credit in their own name. A
warning—unless the account is
closed, students and parents are both
responsible for the full amount of
the debt even if ten years or more
have passed and the parent has never
used the account.

Finally, students can apply for a
credit card account in their name
only. This, of course, puts the official
responsibility for the account solely
on their shoulders. If students do get
in over their heads, parents may find
out about it only much later.

But for those who use their
accounts wisely, future creditors will
consider that behavior as the best
possible indicator of the student's

Again, it’s up to each individual
to decide, along with his or her par-
ents, which is the best alternative—
if indeed they decide the student
should have a card at all.

Car Drivers Are Paying A Hidden Tax

(NAPS)—Drivers are paying as
much as $19.5 billion a year—or
$112.69 per registered driver—in
hidden taxes because 60 percent of
the roads they are driving on are in
need of repair, explains William M.
Wilkins, executive director of The
Road Information Program (TRIP),
a nonprofit transportation research
group based in Washington, D.C.

“It simply costs drivers more to
operate their vehicles on roads in
need of repair, and the primary rea-
son these repairs are not being

‘made is because money that

motorists pay at the pump in feder-
al gasoline taxes is being used to
pay for other items in the federal
budget—including deficit reduction
and other non-highway projects,”
Wilkins says.

Motorists now pay 18.4 cents
per gallon in federal gasoline
taxes, but only ten cents per gallon
goes for road and bridge repairs.
Recent laws have diverted money
from the federal gas tax to pay for
the deficit reduction, mass transit
and other non-highway projects.

The original 1956 law required
that all of the money collected from
the federal gasoline tax be placed
in a Federal Highway Trust Fund.
To ensure that the money was
used only for road and bridge
repairs, the money in the Trust
Fund was placed “off budget.”

This “contract with American
motorists”—in the form of placing
highway funds off-budget—was
broken in the late 1960s when
Congress changed the law to
incorporate the Federal Highway
Trust Fund into the unified feder-

al budget to offset the nation’s
deficit spending.

“The original idea of the federal
gasoline tax was to develop a pay-
as-you-go system in which the
needed repairs and improvements
were paid for by the very same
motorists who use the system,”
Wilkins said. “It was considered
the fairest, most equitable way to
pay for road and bridge improve-
ments without taking money from
the nation’s overall budget. Our
lawmakers have moved us away
from that approach in recent years,
and, as a result, our road and
bridge needs are not being met.”

Since that time, the Trust
Fund has grown to about $9.5
billion. The money sits in the
Federal Highway Trust Fund but
is not spent on needed road and
bridge repairs because it is being
used to mask the size of the
nation’s budget deficit.

“While these budget battles con-
tinue, our nation’s road and bridge
repair needs are mounting, jeopar-
dizing safety and hampering eco-
nomic development,” Wilkins says.


Avoid Credit
Repair Clinics
(NAPS)—Do you usually pay a
lot for a service that you can easi-
ly do yourself, for free? Of course
not! So, then why would you go to
a credit repair clinic? The answer
is simple—you shouldn’t! Credit
repair clinics can’t do anything for

you that you can’t do for yourself

at no cost.

Many credit repair clinics are
unethical organizations that prey
upon desperate consumers who
have had financial troubles. They
falsely promise to remove adverse
information from a consumer's
credit file, usually for a large fee
that needs to be paid up front.

Education Expert Says Summer
Is Not A Vacation From Learning

(NAPS)—Academic skills mas-
tered during the school year may
fade in the summer from lack of use,
says a leading education expert.

"According to Dr. Robert Minor,
senior vice president of education
at Sylvan Learning Centers, the
retention of new information
begins to decrease within 24-48
hours unless it is reinforced or
applied immediately.

“After a month without rein-
forcement, nearly 80 percent of
what your child has learned previ-
ously is lost,” says Dr. Minor.
“Imagine how little your child will
retain from June to September if
you don’t make education a year-
long priority.”

As summer vacation approach-
es, families often make plans to
put away the deadlines that come
with schoolwork and look forward
to a less pressured schedule for
learning activities. While this is a
perfectly appropriate expectation,
Dr. Minor says, parents should
remember that summer isn’t an
excuse for children to take a vaca-
tion from learning.

“Summer can be as much a
time of learning growth as any
other time of year if parents let
their children know that struc-
tured activities are an important
part of the summer vacation
plan,” says Dr. Minor.

Sylvan suggests the following tips
to span the summer learning gap:

* Speak with your child’s coun-
selor to determine academic
strengths and weaknesses. This
will help you design activities to
prepare your child for the upcom-
ing school year.

* Stimulate learning by plan-
ning family trips to the zoo, muse-
ums, local newspaper office, beach
and other places packed with
learning opportunities.

* Have your child write to
grandparents, long-distance fami-
ly members or a pen pal. This
activity will tell you a lot about
your child’s achievement in lan-
guage, spelling and reading. If
your child is older, have him or
her keep a diary.

* Develop a reward system for
meeting specific goals, such as
reading three books or cooking
five meals.

* Consider enrolling your child
in a summer enrichment program
such as those provided by Sylvan
Learning Centers.

Remember, there are plenty of
learning opportunities for you and
your child to explore during the
summer. By using summer as a
time to encourage continued learn-
ing, you can help set the stage for
a sound performance next fall.

Follow These Tips, For Kids On Trips

(NAPS)—Family vacations are
a time for parents and kids to
enjoy the freedom and fun of long
days away from household chores
and schoolwork. But experts
advise that summer trips away
from home should include a few
easy-to-remember rules for safety,
to ensure that adults and children
make the most of their summer

According to Ray Schultz, presi-
dent and chief executive officer of
Hampton Inn and Hampton Inn &
Suites hotels, whose 465 locations
cater to traveling families, parents
and kids need only remember
three simple rules for safe travel-
ing this summer:

Be wise when it comes to
size. The size of things—includ-
ing kids and their toys—plays a
key role in summer safety. For
example, when traveling by car,
don’t take toys that have small
parts that children can accidental-
ly swallow. Always place children
under 40 pounds and 40 inches in
a car seat. And always obey
height requirements for children
on rides at theme parks.

Don’t roam alone when
you're away from home. The old
adage, “There’s safety in numbers,”
rings especially true when in a dis-
tant location. Safety dictates that
families enforce the buddy system,
making sure that no member of the
family wanders off alone. Parents
should write each child’s name on
a slip of paper, along with their
own name and local address, plus
the phone number of a close friend
or relative back home who can

serve as a go-between in case a
child is separated from the adult;
then tuck or pin the paper in the
child’s pocket. Always accompany
children into rest rooms. And
always carry a current photo of
your child with you.

Check the lock before you
hear the knock. Hampton Inn's
Schultz points out that safety
rules apply to hotels as well.
When checking into a hotel, teach
children how to operate the secu-
rity locks. Establish a code word
for children, so they don’t open the
door to strangers when they can’t
see through the peep hole. And
immediately put toiletries out of
the reach of children in the hotel
bathroom. :

“Traveling with children to new
or familiar destinations away
from home can be one of the most
rewarding experiences for fami-
lies,” said Schultz. “And by follow-
ing a few simple precautions, par-
ents can make sure the experience
is as safe as it is entertaining.”

Five Tips For Summer Wound Care

(NAPS)—Nothing can spoil sum-
mer fun like an injury. In summer's
heat, bacteria like staphylococcus and
streptococcus breed easily, and what
begins as a minor cut or abrasion can
quickly turn into a serious infection.
According to Dr. Pol Vandenbroucke,
director of medical affairs for Bayer
Corporation, makers of Campho-
Phenique” first aid products, prompt
attention to all injuries, no matter
how small they seem, is the best way
to avoid real problems.

“When it comes to typical cuts and
scrapes, the possibility of infection
often presents more danger than the
original wound,” said Dr. Van-
denbroucke. “The problem is, nobody
likes to stop what they're doing to
attend to small wounds, and an open
wound is an open door to bacteria.
Everyone—especially children—
should make it a point to disinfect
any skin break as soon as possible.
Even if a cut stops bleeding on its
own, applying a simple first-aid anti-
septic or antibiotic is a common-sense
way of helping to avoid infection.”

Dr. Vandenbroucke offers the
following five tips for summer
wound care:

1. Get Clean...Fast! Wash all
wounds with soap and water thor-
oughly to remove bacteria. Soak
puncture wounds in warm, soapy
water to be sure the deepest point
of the wound is cleansed. The
sooner you clean the wound, the
less likely it is to become infected.
If clean water is unavailable,
apply an antiseptic or antibiotic
ointment immediately, then wash
the wound as soon as possible.

2. Get Dressed...Fast! Apply a
sterile wound dressing or adhesive
bandage as soon as possible after
cleansing. Be sure to use an antisep-

tic or antibiotic ointment on the
wound as a barrier to infection. Some
products, like Campho-Phenique’s
Pain Relieving Antispetic Liquid or
Maximum Strength Antibiotic Plus
Pain Reliever ointment will also ease
the pain of the wound.

3. Watch Bites Carefully!
Insect bites can also pose a threat
of infection. By scratching an itchy
bite, you make larger skin breaks,
and introduce more bacteria from

By. Eo @

your fingers. Some antiseptic prod-
ucts also work to relieve the itch.
Even after you clean and dress the
site, keep a close eye out for signs
of infection like redness, swelling,
and fluid around the wound site. If
infection occurs, see your physician

4. Burns Can Be Infected,
Too! Sunburns and ordinary
burns, such as these caused by
touching a hot barbecue grill, can
become infected almost as easily
as cuts. Wash burned areas thor-
oughly with soap and water, and
apply a soothing antiseptic oint-
ment or liquid, preferably one

, with petrolatum to moisturize the

affected skin. If the burn is seri-

ous, see your doctor.

5. Once is Not Enough! For
maximum protection against
infection, reapply the antiseptic or
antibiotic and recover with fresh
bandage three times each day.

Homeowners would also be
wise to check the expiration dates
on all medication. Because they
are used infrequently, topical
antiseptics and antibiotics found
in first aid kits are often too old to
be optimally effective.

Follow these simple rules and
you'll be on your way to a safe,
happy and healthy summer.

The ABCs Of

Family Eating

(NAPS)—If your home is like
many today, meal preparation can
be a real challenge. There's little
time for shopping and cooking and
lots of concern about serving
nutritious meals that kids will
actually eat.

That’s why the National Hot Dog
& Sausage Council brought together
leading experts in the fields of pedi-
atrics and child nutrition to help
parents better understand the whys
and whens of children’s eating
habits. According to these experts, if
a child is healthy and growing nor-
mally, let the child enjoy a full and
varied diet with little concern.
Favorite foods like hot dogs and
pizza can be a good way of introduc-
ing youngsters to new foods while
making vegetables seem more

Experts recommend a relaxed
approach to children’s eating
because children are not “little
adults” and their appetites go

through different stages. So, erratic
eating is completely normal for
young children. And, remember,
there are no good or bad foods—only
unbalanced diets. ;
To help parents better cope, the
National Hot Dog &-Sausage

Council is offering the “Kid Grid,”
which helps busy families expand
their healthful menu options by
mixing and matching favorite
foods. The Kid Grid and a range of
recommendations on children’s

New Repellent “Spritzes On” To Bug Proof Youngsters :

(NAPS)—A new, pleasant
repellent that effectively repels
biting insects without cramping

has been introduced by the mak-
ers of OFF!",

often inadvertently subject their
children to painful insect bites
because of a lack of backyard bug

youngsters. Dr. Merritt, a Pro-
fessor of Entomology at Michigan
State University, says the follow-
ing simple oversights can have a
marked increase on children’s
“mosquito magnetism” around the

1. Washing children’s hair with
fragranced shampoos. Sweet-
smelling varieties can sharply
boost the number of mosquitoes
swarming overhead.

2. Choosing inappropriate sum-
mer fashions. Mosquitoes have
sophisticated “color vision”
capabilities and are attracted
to dark, solid shades.

3. Placing sandboxes in damp,
shady areas of the yard. With-
out ample sun, puddles in
sandboxes can trigger abun-
dant mosquito development.

4. Surrounding the backyard pool
with shrubs that attract bugs.
Evergreen shrubs and hedges,
for example, are favorite rest-
ing areas for mosquitoes. Add
the constant splashing pool
water and kids are in for dou-
ble trouble. Proper drainage
around pools and under decks
is also a must.

5. Putting an ornamental pond on
the property. Although aesthet-
ically pleasing, artificial ponds
can introduce thousands of
mosquitoes to the property.

Standing in the Velarde's living
room, you almost feel like you're
outside. This bright octagonal
space has a 10-foot ceiling and
high arched windows on five
sides. If constructed in a scenic
setting, the room offers a pan-
oramic vista. On the other hand,
because the Velarde is only 50

feet wide, it fits on a standard city
lot as well.

The lofty entry portico makes a
striking first impression. It's arched
opening echoes the shape of the
living room windows while side-
lights and an arched transom
frame the front door.

A family room with a 9 - foot -
high ceiling is at the core of this

plan. You can get there directly
from almost every room in the
house -- from the bedrooms, en-
try, living room, dining room,
kitchen, and screened patio. The
family room has an eating bar and
a large entertainment center, part
of which could be a wet bar.

The bright entry has a 10-foot
ceiling and a coat closet. Columns
define the boundaries of the liv-
ing room, family room and dining
room without sacrificing the feel-
ing of openness.

Not all of the spaces between
the columns are open. Shelves for
displaying family mementos and
objects d'art create visual sepa-
ration between the formal living
room and the informal family
room. A pocket door allows the
kitchen to be closed off from the
dining room.

The Velarde's master suite has
a large walk-in closet and a pri-
vate bathroom with double vanity

and enclosed shower and toilet.

Open A New Door To Bath Beauty With Ease

(NAPS)—It may be a lot easier
than you realize to give your plain
old bathroom a new and elegant
look and feel.

Sometimes all you have to do is
decide it’s “curtains” for those old
shower curtains and install a
sleek shower door. Bath remodel-
ing is a popular home upgrade
that nets a significant return-on-

Now, a new line of enclosures
has been created to let even
novice “do-it-yourselfers” install
them with confidence and clean
them with ease.

The elegantly designed, water-
tight, space-efficient Eurolux
series from Sterling, a Kohler
company, boasts exceptional fit
and finish, silky-smooth opera-
tion, and hassle-free installation.
No drilling. No cutting.

Most applications install with
only a screwdriver, thanks to a
unique telescoping channel sys-
tem that provides a watertight
compression fit.

Eurolux enclosures feature
rounded edges without the
grooves or tight corners that can
collect dirt and soap scum. Other
ways they make clean-up a snap
include a “lift-and-clean” system
which allows panels to separate,
while still remaining securely
attached to the track and allow
access to glass overlaps; and bi-
fold doors which fold to center and
out of the way to increase access.

The doors utilize tempered safety

standard shower door material.

Each model is made of corro-
sion-free aluminum framing
which is powder-coated with a
white finish and is up to three-
and-a-half times stronger than the
material fitted to standard units.
Seven space-efficient models fit
nearly every shower enclosure
layout, including the increasingly
popular European-style round and
neo-angle applications.

of dye stain; typically they are avail-

On August 8, around 2:30 p.m. patrolmen answered a dispatch to a
business in the 3000 block of Moncrief Road in reference to a

Reports show that the victim, a 54 year old Caucasian man had
given a ride to a young Black woman he was acquainted with. While
traveling in the Haines Street area, the woman saw two Black men
walking along the service road. She suggested that the victim stop so
she could strike a conversation with them. The victim complied and
during the course of the woman's conversation with the men, he also
agreed to give the men a lift.

The men indicated that they had reached the desired destination
when the car entered the Moncrief Road vicinity. When the victim
stopped the grey Chevy two-door the men got out, but demanded that
he do the same! When he did, he was beaten, robbed of all his cash
and his 1986 model car!! The victim managed to walk to a nearby
shoe shop to call for help. The attackers were described as black
males between 16-20 years of age and about 5'8" in height. The po-
lice report did not, however, give any information as to what happened
to the female passenger or whether or not she was involved.

sonville sheriff's officer on a routine patrol came upon an unusual situ-
ation in the 600 block of North Myrtle Avenue last week.

The patrolman stopped a vehicle parked, but with the ignition still
running. Upon closer inspection, the officer spied a leg hanging out-
side the car's opened driver's door. The officer approached the auto
and found a man sound asleep inside. The policeman tried honking
the vehicle's horn a number of times, but could not get the man to
budge. The wake up call was interrupted by a dispatch coming over
the patrol car radio rendering the officer to service.

After completing his service call, the patrolman returned to the Myrtle
Avenue area to find the sleepy suspect still there! This time the cop
not only sounded the horn, but employed the use of the patrol car
siren as well. No luck. The officer then shook the man. This didn't
work either. As a last resort, the policeman popped an ammonia in-
halant under the suspect nose. This did the trick.

When asked to exit the vehicle, the suspect staggered out onto the
sidewalk and had to use a nearby fence for support. The officer read
the man his rights, then administered a number of field sobriety test all
of which the suspect failed. Kenneth Anglin, 47, of the 3700 block of
Freeman was arrested on charges of Driving Under the Influence.

August 2, vice detectives conducted an undercover investigation con-
cerning violations of the Adult Entertainment Act at the Green Door
Lounge in the 900 block of Mcduff Avenue.

Detective made three arrests between the hours of 8 and 10:30
p.m. In one case, after making contact with one of the dancers in the
club, the detective started idle conversation. During the chat, the dancer
stated that she needed to make some money. When the cop asked
her what she had in mind, she replied that she could leave the bar if
she paid a $35.00 fine. The agent stated that he wanted intercourse,
to which the dancer replied "You can have anything you want if got
$100." The agent stated that he had the money and the unsuspecting
dancer again agreed to perform acts of a sexual nature. The detec-
tive, at that point, revealed him self to be a law enforcement officer
and placed the suspect under arrest.

In another case detectives observed two dancers performing to-
gether. In the midst of the act, one of the dancers intentionally pulled
her bathing suit bottom between the cheeks of her buttocks so that
her companion could kiss them, said the officers. She, too, was ar-

The last case involved a dancer reportedly rubbing, hugging, and
allowing herself to be touched by a patron in excess of one minute.
This also led to her arrest. Charged with violation of the Adult Enter-
tainment Act were Michelle Lynn Hall, 27, of the 5200 block of
Sunderland Road and Cynthia Patricia Barnes, 38, of the 1100 block
of Lake Shore Drive. Lisa Ann Powell, 30, of the 10000 block of Angle
court was arrested on Charges of Offering for Prostitution.

DEER matt ME

-Officers dispatched to a domestic disturbance call on August 1 found
the victim cowering in an apartment with two of the doors kicked in!

Janessa Ugiabe of the 2600 block of University Boulevard told of-
ficers that her estranged husband came to the apartment in a rage
and kicked in the front door. She stated that she ran into a back bed-
room and locked the door in an atempt to escape, but the enraged
suspect kicked that door down also!

Once inside the bedroom, the suspect, 21 year old Bright Ugiabe,
grabbed the victim and pulled her out of the apartment, witness said.
When the suspect saw that several tenants had come outside to see
what all the commotion was, he released the victim with the warning
"I'l come back and kill you!! At this point, he got into his car and fled
the scene.

The next day, police were called to the Village Inn Restaurant in the
7600 block of Atlantic boulevard to investigate another assault involv-
ing the same suspect. Police reports state that Ugiabe confronted
Raffondo Jackson, whom he believes to be living with his wife, in the
restaurant parking lot. After an intense verbal altercation, Jackson
got into his vehicle and attempted to leave the premises. However,
Ugiabe got into his car and smashed into the victim's car, investigation
revealed. Jackson was able to drive as far as the 8200 block of Atlan-
tic Blvd. Before the pain from the injuries sustained in the ramming
incident caused him to pull over and call for help. He was transported
to University hospital via rescue unit.

The suspect admitted to all charges except the vehicular assault.
He was read his rights and arrested on charges of Burglary, Aggra-
vated Battery, and Battery/Domestic Violence.

CHASE--Police officers cruising in the 7400 block of Arlington Express-
way on August 2, observed a suspicious looking grey Cadilac travel-
ing in the eastbond lane. A computer check of the vehicle's tag re-
vealed that the 1987 model had been reported stolen.

When the officers attempted to stop the vehicle behind a nearby
liquor store, a back seat passenger jumped out and the driver hit the
gas, zooming across the median grass and onto the X-Way heading
east! With police in hot pursuit, the Caddy careened south on Southside
Boulevard, then west back onto Atlantic running red lights, weaving in
and out of traffic, passing other vehicles and hitting speeds in excess
of 110MPH!!

The chase continued across the Fuller Warren bridge, to I-10 and
off the Stockton Street exit. Police reported that a pedestrian was
nearly struck as the suspect tried to make a turn onto St. Clair Street
at approximately 100 MPH, and crashed into a stop sign. He jumped
from the vehicle and ran up Commonwealth Avenue, but was promptly
apprehended by K-9 officer and his K-9.

Arrested was 18 year oid Keith Lanson Campbell of the 2200 block
of Kingston Street. He was charged with Driving while Driver's license
Suspended, Leaving the scene of an Accident, and Property Dam-
age. While conducting a check of the stolen vehicle, officers found an
operative stun gun on the driver's seat.

CRIME--The Dairy Queen jin the 12000 block of North Main Street
was the scene of a reported hate crime during the last week of July.

Police report that three White males pulled up in the restaurant park-
ing lot at the same time as the victim did. When the victim exited her
vehicle, one of the men spoke to her, but she did not respond. This
apparently angered the suspect because when the woman entered
the business, he used a key to scratch the slur "F---Niggers!! on the
side of the victim's 1992 Ford Bronco. The suspect and his compan-
ions then left the scene.

Employing good solid detective work, police tracked down and ar-
rested the suspect on August 2. Terry Lee Cole, 18, of the 13000
block of Yellow Bluff Road admitted orally and in writing to committing
the crimes, and stated that no one else was involved. Cole was charged
with criminal mischief / hate crime which is a felony.

LICITOR STUNG~In the past, the Gate Food Store in the 5600 block
of Bowden Road has experienced problems with untoward sexual
conduct centered around the rest facilities located outside the busi-
ness. Vice cops conducting an undercover investigation on July 27,
nabbed yet another perpetrator. According to reports, the suspect
followed the undercover detective into the rest room. Once inside, the
suspect began to masturbate himself in full view of the detective, who
was standing in front of a urinal. In a bold move, the suspect then
walked over to the urinal where the cop was standing and commenced
his obscene overtures again!

The detective continued to play his role by taking a seat (fully clothed)
on the commode. At this point, the suspect stationed himself in front
of the agent and asked "Do you want this?" The detective revealed
himself as a law enforcement officer and placed the man under arrest.
Roger Lee Parks, 52, of the 6900 block of Madrio Avenue was charged
with Exposure of Sexual Organs by Masturbation and Offering for Lewd-
ness. Both Charges are misdemeanors.

Fun Fruit For Y

Simply Sensational Summe

(NAPS)—Who says kids don’t
know what’s good for them? As
America strives for a healthier
fifestyle, our nation’s kids are tak-

ing heed by eating more fruit. In -

fact, studies show that kids are eat-
ing 40 percent to 50 percent more
ruit than last year. But with this
increase in fruit-loving kids comes
parental concern for fruit safety. In
keeping pace with the quest for
safe, delicious fruit, over 60 percent
of the New Zealand kiwifruit
shipped to the United States this
Summer will be certified organic.
- Simply stated, certified organic
means no chemical pesticides or
fertilizers are used when growing

Grape Juice To Be
i (NAPS)—Two clinical studies
v recently published in separate
medical journals reported good
i: news about the health and nutri-
!tion benefits of grape juice for
i children and adults. .
8 White Grape Juice for

2 Infants and Toddlers

\ One study, published in Pedi-
!atrics, the scientific journal of the
American Academy of Pediatrics,
found that infants and toddlers can
*absorb white grape juice better than

{a significant impact on how

{American parents view

rapple juice. The study, by confirm: .
ing other related studies, may have _

juice”. It showed that infants and
toddlers exhibited significantly
greater carbohydrate malabsorption
when they drank apple juice than
when they drank white grape juice.
“White grape juice has bal-
anced amounts of fructose and
glucose and an absence of sorbitol

which is a sugar alcohol that is

the real culprit for young children
‘with immature digestive tracts,”
says Dr. Fima Lifshitz, co-author
of the study, and Chairman of the
Department of Pediatrics at Mai-
monides Medical Center in
Brooklyn, New York. ° - .
“Apple juice is more often than

\ :

not the first juice children receive.
Our findings indicate that white
grape juice is a better choice than
apple juice for babies’ first juice,”
said Lifshitz.
Anti-Clogging Flavonoids in
Purple Grape Juice

A separate study conducted at the
University of Wisconsin Medical School
links a daily consumption of multiple
glasses of purple grape juice with lower

platelet activity and the same anti-
clogging cardiovascular benefits as red
wine. The beneficial substances in red
wine are thought to be flavonoids, nat-
urally-occurring compounds which
reduce the “stickiness” of blood-clot-
ting platelets. Flavonoids are in the
skins, stems and seeds of grapes.
“While we are still studying the
benefits of flavonoids, grape juice
might represent a safer alternative
from red wine for many people,”
says John D. Folts, Ph.D., Univer-
sity of Wisconsin Medical School
professor of medicine and director
of the Coronary Artery Thrombosis
Research and Prevention Lab at
UW Hospital and Clinics. His
study was published in Circu-
lation, a journal of the American
Heart Association. The Wisconsin
findings could point to a way to
protect against one aspect of heart
disease for people such as those
who choose not to drink alcoholic
beverages or should not drink
because of health problems such as
diabetes and high blood pressure.

Creative Catfish Mea

ls In Minutes



(NAPS)—Whipping up delicious, nutritious meals in minutes is easy
with genuine U.S. farm-raised catfish.

Chock-full of protein and essential vitamins and minerals, farm-
raised catfish cooks in a flash (average cooking time per farm-raised
catfish fillet is 10 minutes) so aspiring chefs can spend more time with
family and friends and less time over a hot stove.

What's more, there are no limits to farm-raised catfish’s versatility—
whether grilled, baked, broiled or oven-fried, farm-raised catfish always
comes out a winner thanks to its firm texture and mild, sweet taste.

Add a creative flair to mealtime with the following recipe for Sesame
Fried Catfish. For additional farm-raised catfish recipes, write to:
Catfish Meals in Minutes, P.O. Box 568-A, Gibbstown, NJ 08027.


1 pound genuine U.S. farm-raised catfish fillets
1 egg (or 2 egg whites), lightly beaten
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup (approx.) flour for dredging
Vegetable oil for pan-frying

Dipping Sauce:
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 Thsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp sake or white wine


Bring oil to medium-high heat in a heavy frying pan. While
oil is heating rinse the catfish fillets and pat dry with paper
towels. Dredge fillets lightly in flour, dip in beaten egg and coat
thoroughly with sesame seeds. Sauté catfish over medium heat
one fillet at a time for approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side.

While the catfish are cooking, mix remaining ingredients and
either microwave or conventionally bring to a boil for approxi-
mately one minute. Cool, strain to remove garlic, and serve over
fillets or on the side as preferred.

Serves 4.

After School Refuel

(NAPS)—It’s 8 p.m. School is out
for the day, but most kids aren’t
ready to slow down. Refueling this
“kid machine” is definitely in order.

tritious energy-boosting snack that
kids can prepare themselves. And
guess what? They taste good too.
Zesty salsa complements the sweet
taste of grapes in this quick-to-fix

Whether in school or out, grapes
satisfy a kid's sweet tooth without
added sugar or fat. Grapes are nat-
-urally sweet and provide plenty of
energy-boosting carbohydrates. Back-


to-school time is also the peak of the
California grape harvest. Grapes are
now in abundance and are available
in green, red and blue-black colors.

heat melt chocolate chips, peanut
butter and margarine until
smooth, stirring often. Remove
from heat; stir in vanilla.

3. Continue with step 3

NOTE: Do not use reduced-
fat margarine or butter as it
may cause the chocolate mix-
ture to clump and will not coat

Julia’s Hot Fudge Sauce

This wonderful chocolate sauce
. strings up off the ice cream as you
lift it in your spoon, thanks to the
boiled corn syrup.

2/3 cup white corn syrup
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup unsweetened
cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 oz. (2 squares)
unsweetened baking
chocolate, chopped
6 Ths. unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
A big pinch of salt
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Boil corn syrup in small
saucepan until it forms heavy
strands as you drop it off a
spoon—1-2 minutes. Remove
from heat and stir in water.
Sieve together cocoa and
sugar, then whisk them in.
Simmer, stirring, for several
seconds until sugar has dis-
solved completely—undis-
olved sugar will cause sauce
to crystalize later. Add bak-
ing chocolate and simmer,
stirring, until melted; blend
in butter and cream. Bring to
full boil for 15 seconds.
Remove from heat and blend
in salt and vanilla. Serve
warm. Yield: 2 1/2 cups

Military Nurse Anesthetists Remembered In World Peace Starts
With Families

Honor Of 50th Anniversary Of V-J Day

(NAPS)—With August 14 mark-
ing the 50th anniversary of V-J
Day, Japan’s surrender tothe
Allies and the end of World War II,
the American Association of Nurse
Anesthetists (AANA), which repre-
sents the nation’s 25,000 Certified
Registered Nurse Anesthetists
(CRNAs), salutes those nurse anes-
thetists who provided expert anes-
thesia care to American troops.

Real Life Heroes

Annie Mealer, CRNA, an army
nurse anesthetist from Walter
Reed Hospital was one of those
nurse anesthetists. According to
AANA archives, her first overseas
assignment was Corregidor
Hospital, the Philippines, in
September, 1941. She had a staff
of 12 nurses and about 500
patients. She wrote:

“After the bombing of Pearl
Harbor we were ordered on
December 9 to set up a hospital
section in Malinta Tunnel. There
were only a couple of water spig-
ots for the entire hospital, and no
toilet facilities. The electricians
worked on the lights and ventilat-
ing system...

“Christmas 1941. The air raid
signal went off, and we only had
time to jump into a ditch. It sound-
ed as if the whole world were being
blown away. The Japanese bombs
missed very little on the island
that day...We were rushed to the
tunnel in a car between waves of
bombs. In the tunnel I threw my
helmet off, tied my hair up in a
piece of gauze and checked the
shock wards to see if they had ade-
quate help. Then, to the operating
room where I gave anesthetics to
one casualty after another...

“As the days passed, the bomb-
ing of Corregidor intensified. The
shelling and bombing was so con-
stant then, we did not dare go
near the tunnel entrance. I was
working daily from 12 to 14 hours
in the operating room...


“I was called to the command-
ing officer’s office and told they
were evacuating the nurses; a
group would leave that night. I
was to be ready. I turned and
walked out. When I reached the
main tunnel, I heard a voice call,
‘Clear the way for casualties.’ |
looked at the face on the litter as
it passed...I went back to the oper-
ating room. As I sat administering
anesthesia, I reviewed the cases in
the tunnel. They all needed help
that only a nurse could give them.
I sent word to my commanding
officer that I would stay with
them. Here in this tunnel choked
with shell smoke and misery was
a group of people that meant more
to me than anything else.”

Annie Mealer was taken pris-
oner when Corregidor fell to the
Japanese. She was released from
prison by American troops in
February, 1945 and was later
awarded the Philippine Defense
Ribbon for her wartime bravery.

Capt. Clara A. Vezina, another
nurse anesthetist, was cited for
her work as chief nurse anesthetist
in the surgical service of a large
hospital during a period in which
it cared for medical and surgical
casualties evacuated from the
Southern Philippines and Luzon
campaigns. Her citation read:

“Under a heavy census of
patients which frequently num-
bered over 50 percent above rated
capacity, she held complete
responsibility for proper adminis-
tration of anesthesia to all casual-
ties undergoing operative surgery.
In addition, she maintained close
supervision over other nurse anes-
thetists on the staff and contribut-
ed much extra effort to instruction-
al training. By her consistently
superior performance, initiative,
and devotion to duty in the perfor-
mance of arduous and exacting
tasks, Capt. Vezina made an
important contribution to the prop-
er care of the sick and wounded in
the Southwest Pacific Area.”

More Than 100 Years Of Service

Military nurse anesthetists
have provided expert anesthesia
care to U.S. troops at home, over-
seas, and on ships at sea. Nurse
anesthetists were there during
WWI, WWII, the Korean conflict,
Vietnam, and Desert Shield/
Storm. This is just another exam-
ple of the pride CRNAs take in
caring for America and its people
for more than 100 years.

Established in the late 1800's as
the first clinical nursing specialty,
nurse anesthesia developed in
response to the growing need sur-
geons had for anesthetists. As
anesthesia specialists and ad-
vanced practice nurses, today
CRNAs provide more than 65 per-
cent of the 26 million anesthetics
delivered in the United States each
year. CRNAs are the sole anesthe-
sia providers in 85 percent of rural
hospitals, affording these medical
facilities obstetrical, surgical, and
trauma stabilization capability.
CRNAs administer anesthesia for
all types of surgical cases, using all
anesthetic techniques and practice
in every setting in which anesthe-
sia is delivered, from university-
based medical centers to free-
standing surgical facilities.

B Is Welfare Necessary?

(NAPS)—As possibilities for
welfare reform are debated, many
people ask whether charities are
more effective than government in
delivering aid to the poor.

In 1993, one source estimates
that The Salvation Army assisted
65 million people—about 25 million
more than the federal government

was able to reach. A major portion
of support given by the Army is
short-term or counseling services
for those in transition or in critical
need in dire circumstances.
Government assistance most often
goes to a different population for
ongoing needs. If charities received

more federal dollars for: services, it

is unlikely they could replace feder-
al assistance—or that existing
resources and services could stretch
as far as necessary.

Overall, only 12.6 percent of the
Army’s funds are from municipal,
state, and federal sources ($164 mil-
lion in 1994). In New York City,
however, government supplied
about 40 percent of the Army’s $84
million budget for 1994. If those
funds are cut they may not be made
up by the private sector, according

“...Neither the Army nor any group of private agencies could possibly

hope to bear the whole burden...As with most controversial issues, welfare

reform is complicated.”

to Major Betty Israel, The Salvation
Army’s director of social services for
New York City area: “I just don’t

see the public suddenly saying ‘we'll
give you money so that you can con-
tinue providing services.”

While The Salvation Army
spends 89 cents per dollar on
services, with only 8.1 percent of
its total budget applied to
administrative costs, the organi-
zation is unique in many
respects. For example, unlike
federal employees, the Army’s
officers receive a stipend with
subsidy for housing, health and
transportation; they are or-
dained ministers fulfilling the

Army’s mission, as well as pro-
fessionals doing a job.

In an interview for CNN televi-
sion Commissioner Kenneth L.
Hodder, The Salvation Army’s
National Commander, warned:
“...neither the Army nor any group
of private agencies could possibly
hope to bear the whole burden...
As with most controversial issues,
welfare reform is complicated.”
Successful government programs
often follow unique non-profit pro-
grams that are supported, at least
in part, by government dollars. It
is likely that welfare reform will
succeed only if both government
and private agencies keep up a
constructive dialogue.

ing newlyweds and couples renew-
ing their marriage vows.

The theme of Blessing '95 is
“World Peace Through Ideal

is intended to foster not only
healthy individual families but
also a global community promot-
ing the ideals of love and peace. In
America, the event will also
emphasize the importance of God

Safe Summer Fun

Special To The NNPA
From The National
Safe Kids Campaign

Relaxation, family vacations
and lots of warm weather activi-
ties - that is what summer means
to most Americans, especially
children. Summer break revs up
most every child's desire to cram
in as many adventure packed ac-
tivities as possible before return-
ing to school. That is why parents
and care givers must make their
children's safety a top priority dur-
ing what doctors and emergency
room staff call “Trauma season."
More unintentional childhood
deaths and injuries occur between
the summer months of May and
August than any other time of the

*With all of the excitement that
accompanies summer, adults and
children often put safety on the
back yard," said Heather Paul, Ph.
D., executive director of the Na-
tional SAFE KIDS Campaign.

“There are many simple ways
that families can make their
homes and communities safer for
kids. No one anticipates that a
tragedy will strike during this fun
filled time, but this is when chil-
dren are pushing their abilities to
the limits," she added.

By putting safety first and fol-
lowing the guidelines below, you
can help ensure endless safe
summer fun for the whole family.

Backyard Basics

Your home is most likely re-
garded as the safest place for your
children to play. What many par-
ents and care givers forget is that
injuries can happen anywhere,
even in your own backyard, if cer-
tain safety precautions are ne-
glected. Follow these guidelines
to help your children safely enjoy
playing in your backyard.

* Always supervise children, even
if they are "only in the backyard."
* Make sure all fences and gates
are secure. Fix broken rails and
check to see if there are any pro-
truding parts.

* Remove poisonous plants.
Many common household and
garden plants can be poisonous,
and should be kept out of
children's sight and reach. If you
have any concerns about a plant,
contact the nearest Poison Con-
trol Center or a medical profes-
sional. Keep syrup of Ipecac on
hand, but use only after consult-
ing a doctor or emergency medi-
cal personnel.

* Keep tools out of children's
reach. Never leave gardening
tools anywhere children can find
them or fall on them.

* Lock up barbecue grills and
gasoline containers.

* Make sure children drink plenty
of water. Children can become
dehydrated. Periodically bring
children inside for a rest and a
drink, especially on hot and hu-
mid days.

* Make sure children use sun-
screen when necessary.

Getting To Know
Your Neighborhood

There is always comfort in
knowing your children are playing
only a few blocks from home.
However, this comfort can give
you and your children a false
sense of security when it comes
to safety.

The National SAFE KIDS Cam-
paigns suggests following these
tips for playing safely in the neigh-

Familiarize yourself with neighbor-
hood play areas. Inspect play-
grounds for rusted or broken
equipment and dangerous sur-
faces such as concrete or asphalt.

* Warn children about unaccept-
able play areas. Garages; cbn-«
struction sites, abandoned build-

ings, railroad tracks, dumpsters,

waterfronts and unsupervised

swimming areas may appeal to a

child's sense of curiosity, but they

should be strictly off limits!

* Children under age 10 should
never cross streets alone. 'Re-
mind children ages 10 and older
of the rules of pedestrian safety
such as using sidewalks and look-
ing large, right, and left again for
traffic before crossing the street.

Smart Cycling

Most every child yearns for a
bicycle during the summer,
dreaming of new paths to triumph
and trails to blaze. While friends
are away on vacation, a bicycle
can become a child's stand in
companion while searching for
new summer adventures. Unfor-
tunately, children often attempt
risky stunts and exhibit careless
behavior. According to t he U.S.
Consumer Product Safety Com-
mission (CPSC), 88 percent of
those injured while performing
stunts are children ages 14 and

Each year, approximately 300
children ages 14 and under are
killed and another 400,000 are
injured in bicycle related incidents.
Two thirds of all bicycle fatalities
occur between May and Septem-

Using a bike helmet every time
you ride is one of the following
safe cycling guidelines recom-
mended by the national

* Purchase an approved bicycle
helmet for each child. Insist the
helmet is worn correctly every
time the child goes for a ride.
Helmets reduce the risk of head
injury by 85 percent and brain in-

jury by almost 90 percent (Buy

only helmets that meet safety

Clinton's Big Mistake

Dear Dr. Faulkner:

-'You are an experton. behavior, ..1T

so tell me what President Clinton
did wrong in the recent elections
and what he needs to do in order
to get elected again.

Mr. W., Atlanta

Dear Mr. W.:

Thanks for that nice question.
It's easy to answer.

You have heard a lot of people
say that America wanted a ma-
jor change of policies and that
white males were ticked off, so
they voted for the Republicans.
That's only a small part of the an-

Basically people are too busy
trying to earn a living. Most rely
upon others to make political de-
cisions for them. Bill Clinton is
now fully aware of the fact that he
let public opinion slip through his
fingers due to public relations

It is similar to a football’player
catching a pass and heading to-
ward the end zone. He is so sure
that he is going to score a touch-
down, he forgets to hold the ball
tightly, and the football slips out of
his hand while he is running to-
ward the end zone. Or, similar to

- Black Americans who had so

many civil rights laws passed in
the 1950's and 1960's that they
stopped fighting. They felt thatthe
world had finally accepted black
people as first class citizens, as

human beings. Blacks, not think-

ing realistically, misjudged white
America. For, while blacks were
busy enjoying their new found
freedoms, some white people
were before the civil rights law.
And that is exactly what hap-
pened. That is primarily why
blacks are worse off now than they
were fefore the civil rights laws
were passed. Thus, blacks
are now weaker in many ways and
the white opposition is stronger.
Now back to Bill Clinton. When

he was elected President, he had
“the whole world behind

him. he

was the prototypical President.
~ He actually had it made for a while.

But while he was enjoying being
President and Saveloping a iar

publicans were ue their
plan to manipulate the minds of

white America.

The Republicans were ready-
ing “Rush Limboughs" in every
major city to twist and turn the
minds of American - especially the
minds of white males The expert
Republican mind machine was
saying to white America: “You are
being taken advantage of by Bill
Clinton and his democratic cro-
nies. You are being taken advan-
tage of. You need and deserve
new political leaders. You are
angry and you don't like the per-
son you elected previously." Most
Americans said to themselves:
"Gee, | didn't know that | felt like
this. Wow! This is great, you're
right. | am angry.”

After they voted incumbents out

of office, Rush Limbough and his

co-horts told them: “You white
males voted as a major block. You
showed your anger. You wanted
change. You want a conservative
country." Most voters thought to
themselves: "You're right, Rush,
| want change (I guess). | don't
like Bill Clinton (I think). | don't
feel angry, but thanks, Rush, for
letting me know how | feel."
When Bill Clinton found out
what had occurred on the day af-
ter the election, he was shocked.
Privately, he said, "damn, | let the
shrewd Republicans sneak up on
me. Now, | have no choice but to
go along with the Republicians
program. Why did | become so
complacent and take the Repub-
licans for granted? | had the
American Psyche in the palm of
my hands, but | let it slip away, just
like the football player let the foot-

- ball slip out of his hands. Now |

have to find enough liberal talk
show hosts and mind manipula-
tors to re-influence the American
mind-white males. Do | have
enough time to do this before the
next presidential election?”

One might say that Bill Clinton
closed his eyes momentarily while
walking and, when he opened
them, he was in the very middle
a mine field. Now, he must de-
vote most of his precious time to
finding an escape route. Mario
Cuomo, former governor of New
York was defeated in the last elec-
tion - not because he was a bad
Governor, but because he be-
came complacent and too self
assured. In previous elections,
when he had no opponent,
Cuomo did very little to continue
to solifdify his popularity. He spent
little money during the elections.

Why should he? He felt, there
was no opposition. However, his
enemies were shrewdly winning
the minds of the electorate.

The head coach of the Univer-

sity of Arkansas Basketbailf team—

once told his players, “Don't ever
get complacent. You're never
safe." Cuomo should have spent
huge amounts of money, just as if
he had an opponent, in order to
force his image indelibly into the
minds of the constituents. He did
not do this, so he lost control of
his image just as Clinton did. They
foolishly allowed their opponents
to tell the public how badly they
were doing. We are talking about
two of the toughest, finest politi-
cians in the country. One of them
is out of a job, and the other is try-
ing to recover his losses. .

If you would like to contact Dr.
Charles Faulkner, you may write
or call him at: PO. Box 955, Wash-
ington, D.C. 20044-0955.

* Teach children safe bicycle be-
+ thaviors. Emphasize the fact that
a bicycle is a vehicle, not a toy.
. Check with local safety organiza-
tions to find out about bicycle
safety days and rodeos, and have
your child participate.
* Make sure the child's bicycle
works properly. Are reflectors se-
cure? Test the brakes. Can the
child completely grasp
handbrakes? Does the bicycle
stop right away? Make sure gears
shift smoothly and tires are se-
cured tightly and properly inflated.
* Familiarize yourself with the
child's bicycling enviroment. En-
courage the child to bike in safe
enviroments, such as those with
bicycle paths. Children who ride
on streets are eight times more
likely to be injured than those
riding on bicyclé paths.

Satellite TV: What You Should Know

(NAPS)—Tired of poor reception
and the same old thing on TV?
Crystal-clear reception, CD-quality
sound and hundreds of channels
are now offered through a variety of
satellite systems.

With so many choices, it makes
sense to learn more about the dif-
ferent kinds of satellite systems
before buying one. Here are some
questions to ask while shopping

that can help you make an ‘L¥

informed decision:

e Will I receive programming
from “C-Band” (Full View" TV) or
“Ku-Band” frequencies? Full View
TV is the industry leader used in
more than 3 million homes and
virtually all broadcast and cable
TV companies in North America.
Ku-Band technology is still used
by only a handful of companies. -

¢ Can I program my system for
my favorite channels? Some sys-
tems allow up to 150 channels to
be programmed, providing instant ,
access to round the clock sports,
first run movies, special concerts,
educational, cultural and ethnic

* How will inclement weather r
affect the different systems? Some

satellite systems are prone to poor :
or no reception during heavy
clouds and storms. ‘Full View TV
provides a clear signal in nearly
any kind of weather.

* How many channels are *

offered? Many satellite systems

offer limited program packages

coming from only one satellite. Be- ’;

cause it has access to 21 satellites, %

With a world full of television
“viewing opportunities, it's wise to
-educate yourself about all the
. different kinds of programming
. options and systems.

- Full View TV offers up to 350

“channels, including 100 free TV

. channels, 100 free radio channels

! and 150 subscription channels.

* How can I keep my children

“from watching inappropriate
_ channels or programs? Some sys-
. tems, like Full View TV, offer par-

* ents more control over what chil-
‘ dren watch. An on-screen display

. features the title of the program,
