Under the auspices of the Suncoast African-American Chamber of Commerce, Denson encouraged African-American fathers in the area to take their children to school on the first day of school each year. For the first time, this year, Tampa joined 20 other cities, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles participating in the initiative. The Million Father March, which began on the first day of tlte 2004-2005 school year, is sponsored nationally by the Chicago non-profit Black Star Project. The has grown out of recognition of the power of male involvement in the education of Black students. Moreover, at least too Black men have posted near the front doors of elementary, high schools, Headstart programs, and private schools with large Black student populations. Billed as an opportunity for Black men to show their commitment to the educational lives of their children on the first day of' school and throughout the school year, the Million Father March has been hailed as a major step forward in the remaking of the image of Black fathers, nationwide. Furthennore, research has shown that children whose fathers take active roles in their educational lives have higher test scores, higher grade point averages, higher attendance rates, higher graduation rates, enjoy school more, have lower suspension and expulsion rates, experience fewer behavior problems and are less likely to use drugs, alcohol or engage in premature sex. For these reasons, urge every father, grandfather, stepfather, uncle, older brother, male cousin and male family friend to take a child to school, at least once a week for the entire school year. From all accounts, we just might be able to stem the tide of our children falling into prison, and help them to claim their rightful place at the head of the class Yes, as David Denson has proven, we can save our children, if we only believe! Think about it. Pass it on!

Unfortunately, Black principals and other such Black school officials will be used to help facilitate this return to segregation. We can also see a return to segregation in other areas.

Harrison: And, if that is true, then it could have just as easily been any other man or woman in uni form When confronted by deputies, Phillips reportedly fired several rounds at those deputies as well. And without any fanfare, the deputies did what they had to do. They ended his life with two shots This is a far cry from the shooting of Angilo Freeland in Polk County last September. Freeland, who allegedly shot and killed Deputy Matt Williams and his dog, was shot 68 times. A SWAT team of 9 officers fired 110 rounds of ammunition at the suspect. After the Freeland shooting, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd was asked why so many shots were fired and he responded that they only had 110 bullets. Comments such as that make you wonder why some one like that became a Sheriff in the first place. i However on the other side of the coin, we have Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee. He and his team should be commended for e xhibiting exemplary behavior in a very str e ssful situat i on. Th e manner in which the Hillsborough Coqnt y Sheriffs Office handled this shooting should be recognized through out the country There were no demeaning comments about the suspect. Instead, they focused their attention on the type of person the officer was. There was no bragging about running out of bullets. Instead, they did what they had to do and nev e r voiced negative comment s to the television cameras for th e world to hear. And they did it with dignity, respect to the community and didn't allow the s hooting of the suspect to take away from the respect deserved by Sgt. Harrison.

Consider that millions of Americans are vulnerable to sil ent kill e r s tha t we import into our homes, daily. Without question, the tim_ e has c;;me for this to stop. Our federal government must put teeth in the Food and Drug Administration's ability to monitor and test imported food and other products for harmful toxins and general defects. What's more, America needs to reopen our manufacturing plants and produce our own goods and foods until we feel comfortable buying products made in China or elsewhere. Besides, our economy could stand the boost in jobs, which the reopening of our own manufacturing plants would bring. Think about it. -Look for "Made-in-America." Pass it on!

I am talking about good discipline. There are three keys to good discipline. Teachers and parents will do well to learn these three keys and use them. Disciplining children is never easy and I don't intend to imply that it is. Discipline will be much easier and more effective if it is applied firmly, fairly and consistently. It starts by establishing policies or rules and regulations. Then make sure the children understand them. Discipline using these three keys must start immediately. Neithex;, parents .or teachers should ever let go or ignore any behavior that they don't intend to continue to put up with. Children need to be reprimanded every time they violate the rules or exercise unbecoming behavior. Parents and teachers need to avoid embarrassing children before their friends and peers. Experience says that to do so will more than likely draw an unwanted reaction from the child. Whenever possible, children should be called to the side when .being disciplined in any manner. Never promise to do anything to children that you know you can't do or won't do. This can get to be an embarrassing challenge. Discipline must be consistent. What is wrong and unacceptable today must be wrong and unacceptable every day. It can never be all right today and unacceptable tomorrow. Consistency will let children know what behavior is unac ceptable. Discipline must be fair. The punishment must fit the infraction, and it must apply equally to all children. Parents nor teachers should be guilty of having pets who can do no wrong. Discipline should be no joke and no laughing matter. It must be serious and firm. Parents and teachers should not engage in word-for-word arguing with children. Adults say what you've got to say and be through with it. Move on to something else. Teachers should be ready to start class as soon as stu'dents come into the room. Do not let them just sit there idle or they will'find something to do and that something may be disruptive. Get busy immedi ately. Generally, children expect to be disciplined. Generally, they don't mind if the disci pline is firm, fair and consis tent. It is never too late to use these three keys to good dis cipline. The longer you wait the l!arder it becomes. Children may dislike you at first, but they will become accustomed and appreciate you later. ....., ., r-0 c )> en m z ::j z m r;I:D c: rr-, z "'0 C tD en .. : ' .','. :::z:: ; : Good Old Fashioned Politi !cs I < JTf. changed around us, what they do while in children how, they en sometimes we ignore those school. will be punished, and for things that haven't really Politics decides where you how long.

Can you say with absolute certainty that the people who claim to love you now, will still be around if an injury, illness, or unfortunate situation left you debil itated? We want to believe in the loyalty of those we hold dear to our hearts. But the reality is that we never know what anyone is truly made of until their feet are placed firmly into the fire.

Keys, founder of All Sports Community Services, Incorporated and a former NFL Super Bowl player, is about to receive another special recognition, thanks to his alma mater, Mississippi State University. The 2007-208 academic year marks the 75th anniversary of the Southeastern Conference. To commemorate this milestone in conference history, the SEC has developed a campaign that will highlight former student-athietes who have earned distinction by positively impacting their community, state, region, and nation. In all, 75 stories of character will be presented during the year through an doesn't rebuild, they just reload. While this is only an exhibition game, a win is important for both of these annual powerhouse football teams. The game is at 7:30 p. m. tonight. TYRONE KEYS ed media campaign utilizing television, radio and internet. Mississippi State University selected Keys as one of six former student-athletes from that school that will be recognized A 30-second radio spot narrated by CBS's Verne Lundquist will feature a "stOI]' of character," on Keys. Also, the radio spot will run on all 12 SEC member radio networks as well as the SEC's radio network that carries various SEC championships. The story will also be highlighted on a special section of the SEC website (www.SECsports.com) dedicated to the SEC's 75th anniversary. Keys said the honor came as a surprise to him. "I wasn't aware of anything like this. I'm very grateful to be honored this way. This really means a lot coming from the SEC and Mi:-sissippi State." Keys said a lot of people involved in his life are due a lot of credit for him receiving this special recognition. "I owe a lot to my high school and Mississippi State for nominating me. Mississippi is my home sate, and when I signed to attend the school, I was fortunate to have mentors that gave vision outside of the football field. With my mother being an educator and raising 3 boys, her guidance wa:> instrumental." Keys said everything he's accomplished he believes is in the potential of every studentathlete. "It's always been my belief that we should all give back. This is more about those who will follow in my footsteps. The young people need to know this is what you can expect when you give back.

The Milwaukee native has not played professional basketball since turning down a three-year, $21 million extension from the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 2004-05 season. The marshal acted on a court order requested by a New York bank that plans to sell the boat to pay off $1.3 million it says Sprewell owes on the mortgage. Sprewell's firm, LSF Marine Holdings, hasn't made its $10,322 monthly on time or maintained the necessary insurance on the boat, according to North Fork Bank. The marshal seized the boat in Manitowoc, where it was in storage. Sprewell could not be reached for com ment on the repossession The 70-foot "Milwaukee's -Best" was built in 2001 by the Italia n firm AzimutBenetti, which specializes in so-called mega-yachts Cou:r:t document'S show Sprewell bought the boat in 2003.

Investigators used dental records to identify Griffin, 25, who began his tumultuous pro career with the Houston Rockets in 2001. He was waived by the Timberwolves in March. "The cause of death and manner of death, which also includes toxicology results, is periding," said Beverly Begay, chief investigator for the Harris County Medical Examiner's office. Griffin, a five-year veteran who was the No.7 pick in the 2001 NBA draft, had battled alcohol problems since coming out of Seton Hall. He was suspended by the league for five games in January for violating its anti-drug program. "Basketball was never an issue with him. He needed more life lessons, and unfortunately he was never able to reach his potential," former Timberwolves coach Dwane Casey said. Houston police said in a report that the driver of the SUV ignored a railroad EDDIE GRIFFIN warning and went through a barrier before striking the moving train about 1:30 a.m. Friday. The resulting fire burned the SUV and the side of a railcar carrying plastic granules, police said. The driver's body was badly burned and there was no identification. "I was able this afternoon to get some dental records from the one dentist he had gone to see in Houston, and they were able to use that apparently to positively identify him," said Derek S. Hollingsworth, an attorney who has represented Griffin criminal cases Hollingsworth said he spoke with Griffin's mother, who was devastated by the news.

She has used terms as "Prophetess" and "Dr." as a prefix to her name. Bynum recently shared the national stage with Yolanda Adams, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Fantasia, Smokie Norful, Fred Hammond, Coko, The caravans and Dr. Bobby Jones on 'BET's Celebration of Gospel.'

Tommy Lee Poindexter, 18, was indiCted Thursday on 14 counts, including sexual battery, kidnapping and bur glary. He is accused of partici pating in the rape of a 35-year old woman with as many as nine other suspects whom police believe are all teenagers Three other teens -Jakaris Taylor, 15; Nathan Walker, 16 ; and Avion Lawson, 14 -are also held without bail after being indicted last month. All face possible life sentences in adult prison if convicted. Prosecutors have said they plan to seek the maximum penalties and will not negotiate any plea deals. The woman told police the masked teens accosted her and her 12-year-old son in their apartment at the Dunbar Village housing project June 18. The teens are accused of repeatedly raping and sodomizing the mother, beating both of them and forc ing her to perform oral sex on her son. The suspects then doused the victims with clean-TOMMY LEE POINDEXTER ing solutions, likely in a crude attempt to clean the crime scene, police said Taylor, Walker and Lawson were linked to the crime t hrou g h DNA e v id e nce and fingerprints, police said. A police report indicates Poindexter was also sought for a DNA comparison. He has denied any involvement but the physical evi dence we have from the scene speaks to the contrary, police spokesman Peter Robbins said Friday. "We're certainly developing more suspects and anticipate more arrests." Poindexter's mother, Harriet Rogers, 44, said her son was home with her on the night of the attack "My son didn't have anything to do with that stuff, Rogers said.

ENTERTAINMENT Oprah's Staff Upset Over Employee Overtime Pay "Oprah Winfrey Presents" has finally set a date for its production of" A Raisi n in the Sun," a mad e -for-TV adapta tion of the Broadway revival that starred Sean Combs, Phylicia Rashad, Audra McDonald, and Sanaa Lathan. The film will premiere F eb. 25 on ABC, the night after the network' s live broadcast of the 80th Annual Academ y Awards. The aforementioned stars of the play are also featured in the TV film, along with "ER" actor John Stamos. Based on Lorraine Hansberry's play, the story centers around a family living and struggling on Chicago's South Side in the 1950s. It was also announced Friday that ABC will air "Oprah Winfrey Presents: Mitch Alborn's For One More Day" on Dec. 9. The film, based on the best-selling book by Mitch Albom, centers on a broken-down former baseball player (Michael lmperioli) on the verge of a suicide who gets to spend one more day with his departed mother (Ellen Burstyn). Meanwhile, back at Oprah's Harpo Studios, staffers are said to be upset over an employee who managed to. 'earn $65,000 in overtime pay within a 16-week period. This would mean the woman, Carla Bird, would have worked 18 5 hours a day, Monday through Friday, the New York Post calculated. "Several weeks ago, it was discovered by accounting and human resources," a source told the newspaper. "Most employees would have been walked right out the door. Well, that's just not the case for good ol' 'Birdie.' Bird, an assistant to Winfrey's co-executive producer Lisa Erspamer, filed for 800 hours of overtime from January through April of this year. Even if Bird had worked seven-day weeks for the three months (despite Harpo employees having the first week of January oft), she would average just under 12.5 hours a day. Contractor Drops Criminal Complaint Against Ja Rule JARULE A contractor from North Jersey who won a civil judgment against Ja Rule has dropped a criminal complaint against the rapper out of fear for his safety. Contractor Joel Tobia accused the artist of paying only $5,000 of a $13,000 bill to fix a leak at his Saddle River, New Jersey home. Tobia won the $8000 balance in a civil court after Ja failed to appear. Tobia filed a criminal com plaint as well, but decided to drop the case last week because he fears ill will may come his way if he continues to pursue it. "People are asking me, do you know what you are Wido'Ner Upset With Brandy's Partying While prosecutors continue to decide if charges should be filed against Brandy for the freeway accident that led to a fatality, a judge on Friday decided to combine four civil suits against the singer into one case. Motorist Awatef Aboudihaj was killed when she was struck by a car that was rammed from behind by an SUV driven by Brandy. The entertainer currently has lawsuits pending from Aboudihaj's husband, her two kids from a previous marriage, her parents and Malory Ham, the man who survived the accident. A trial date for the combined cases is scheduled for Jan. 28 The date can't come soon enough for Aboudihaj's husband, Marquane Hdidou. TMZ.com cameras doing?" Tobia told Judge Roy F. McGeady, according to The Record. "I have two children. I am concerned. I hope you are reading between the lines." Judge McGeady dismissed the criminal charges against the rapper, who did not appear in court yesterday. BRANDY caught up with his attorney who said his client is extremely angry that he sees photographs of Brandy out at clubs so soon after the crash, which took place in December. "His wife is gone and it's very, very frustrating," he told TMZ. "It causes him extreme anger and all the emotions that one could pos sibly see that a spouse would go through when he sees Brandy out there partying, dancing, drinking, living life, enjoying life. There has been absolutely no ramifications on her at this point."

When it comes to learning, nothing takes the place of hands-on experience And for three bright young adults, that's exactly what they received at the Supervisor of Elections Office. College Students Briana Huggins, Shiva and Herold Lord spent an event-filled summer as interns for Supervisor Buddy Johnson and came away with hea.thy respect for the office and the staff "I wanted to provide an opportunity for students to learn about the elections process, leadership and team development," Johnson said. "There's an enormous amount of work planning for and holding an election it's a year-round job," said Briana, a sophomore at Florida International University majoring in inter national business. Shiva was amazed at the number of workers needed during election time. She spent much of her summer helping Diana Jones, who is in charge of roster of some A politi cal sctence maJor at Speln1an University, she plans to enter law school upon graduation. Herold partnered with Briana to help SOE staff analyze the new election laws passed by. the Florida Legislature earlier this year. Herold recently graduated from the University of South Florida and hopes to eventually go on to law school. Briana said she often hears students say their vote doesn't count. 'They don't see the bigger picture. I just hope that our age group realizes the power we have to make a difference," Shiva said. The program was such a huge success we are exploring the possibility of expanding it next year and pmtnering with local colleges and universities. Having young people get involved in the elections office serves many purposes," Johnson said. -----FOR YOUR INFO -: . . forthe Scholarship Gala September 22, One Unique Individual.: One Diverse Law Firm.
