c ,rn c Hyde Park Resident Helped Bring Wai-Mart Store To Community Ms. Barbara TurnerHenderson was born and raised in H y de Park. As a matter of fact her family is on e of the original families in that community For m any years residents in the cory1munity had to have transportation to get to the nearest supermarket. That was until a bout 10 years a go when a supermarket was constructed on the corner of Kennedy Boulevard and Oregon Tha t s tore closed after a few years, a nd another took its place. That store also closed and the elderly residents once again found themselves need ing transportation to get to the nearest supermarket. Ms. Barbara Turner-Henderson stands in front of the Wal-Mart Store she helped bring to her Hyde Park community. When the store was there, we' d just walk there, and I'd see the elderly people in the area with their carts just enjoying the short walk to the store." Ms. Turner-Henderson noticed that several Wal-Mart Neighborhood Supermarkets were opening all over the city, and thought that Kennedy and Oregon would be an ideal location for a new one. "We had a Winn-Dixie There and a .Save-Rite and neither stayed around that long. I prayed about the elderly residents not being able to get to the store." That's when Ms. TurnerHenderson decided to contact the Wal-Mart corporate offices and inquire about them opening a store I spoke to them in tears and told them my story. I gave them the location told them who owned the land and anything else I could come up with. The lady I spoke to said she'd pass on the information." A year ago, w ork began on Referral Service (813) 495-3702 1-866-352-4200 the store and now it's open Ms. Turner-Henderson said she s th a nkful for all the people who now have jobs, and she thanks God for giving the community a beautiful place to shop "It took me four years to get their attention, and it paid off I'm very excited about the store, and I just hope it s tays longer than the others It is a welcome addition to this. community and the elderly residents who have called it h o m e f o r so ma n y years."

Something To Chill Your Blood :: ecause of the nature of what we are about to say, are sending it the way we received it. According the Southern Poverty Law Center, "a new FBI report confirms-that white supremacists are infiltrating the American military for several reasons. An unclassified FBI Intelligence Assessment report entitled, 'White Supremacist Recruitment of Military personnel since 9/11,' which was released to law enforcement agencies nationwide explains, 'sensitive and reliable source reporting indicates supremacist leaders are encouraging followers who lack documented histories of neo-Nazi activity and overt racist insignia such as tattoos to infiltrate the military as 'ghost skin-heads,' in order to recruit and receive training for the benefit of the extremist movement." "The FBI report details more than a dozen investigative findings and criminal cases involving Iraq and Mghanistan veterans as well as active-duty personnel engaging in extremist activity in recent years. For example, in September 2006, the leader of the Celtic Knights, a central Texas splinter faction of the Hammerskins, a national racist skinhead organization planned to obtain firearms and explosives from an active duty Army soldier in Fort Hood, Texas. That soldier, who served in Iraq in 2006 and 2007, was a member of the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi group.". "Looking ahead, current and former military personnel belonging to white supremacist extremist organizations wlio experience frustration at the inability of these organizations to achieve their goals may choose to begin new, more operationally minded and operationally capable groups," the report concludes. We urge local, state law enforcement and the military to be aware. YOU ARE UNDER SEIGE! Diversity In .Judicial Nominations Is Necessary ollt2!"atlllatio>ns to Gov. Charlie Crist, not only for his ......... ... wedding, hut for his current commitment to diversity in the State's judicial system. While there has been criticism by the lack of diversity in his cabinet and staff, ..Crist no doubt, deserves fo. r recently ing that the judicial nominating commission submit the names of more diverse candidates to be considered for the .Florida Supreme Court. Thus far, the commission has only submitted the names of four men (three white iuid"one. Hispanic) and a white woman. Readers might assume from the list of candidates submitted to Crist that no qualified and experienced Black candidates worthy of Supreme Court nomination were accessible. In fact, a white male eandidate was selected by Crist to replace former Supreme Court Justice Raoul Cantero, the lone Hispanic in the system. Historically, our court system has always had a marked lack of diversity, both statewide and nationwide. Therefore, the presence of qualified, expe-:rienced and widely diverse judicial nominee pools (in that order) are important. Forgive Us for wondering. But in this year 2008, there must surely have been at least one candidate eligible "'t to become part of the nominee pool. W Yes, Gov. Crist was right to ask for a more diverse list of e, qualified Supreme Court justice candidates. This is a new day. Things must be done a different way. A Melting Pot ne might think that the : ': :masses would give : President-Elect Barack Obama an opportunity to become the President before the controversy begins. But, then that would be in a perfect world. The fact of the matter is many people in this country cannot let the past bd the past. So, they seek out ways of keeping prejudice alive. His historic win has raised ridiculous questions to a new level. In addition to wanting to know if he will smoke in the White House, folks are still picking his heritage apart. Once upon a time, whites may have believed that there was purity in their race. But, few of the Africans enslaved in this country could boast of such purity. History shows that white men, from society's most highly respected to the lowest of scoundrels, made their way to the slave quarters. Additionally, some white women found themselves in amorous relationships with slaves and married them. If their offspring were light enough to pass for white, they were called mulatto, which means having one white parent and one Black parent. President-Elect Obama has come to terms with his ancestry. His mother was a white American and his father a Kenyan Black. He is a true African American. In his words, PresidentElect Obama said, "I identify as African-American -that's how I'm treated and that's how I'm viewed. I'm proud of it." His heritage casts him in a group that is becoming increas ingly larger al)d more vocal: the biracial group. And, he's not alone. Some, such as Mariah Carey, Halle Berry, and Tiger Woods stand out. Woods made an effort to dif ferentiate himself although by appearance, he looks African American. Carey acknowledges both parents, and Berry takes the same road as President-Elect Obama. When Ms. Berry accepted her Academy Award in 2002, she said she was accepting on behalf of all the Black women who had gone on before her. Her white mother was in the audience and beamed with pride. The bottom line is none of us are 100% anything. There is mixed heritage in all of us, whether we want to admit it or not and America is truly a melt ing pot. Paul Robeson: Legendary Artist : am honored to dedicate :this column to Paul : Leroy Robeson (1898 1976), a legendary scholar, athlete, ambassador, actor and singer, at the request of one of our readers. Paul Robeson is legendary because during a time of segregation, Jim Crow and racial discrimination, he stood tall and unchained. He became an internationally known artist who was revered by many for his talent, though reviled by some because of his perceived p 'olitictil brrentatfun. Personally, I wish every athlete, especially Black was required to read the bio graphy of this great inan who epitomizes the audacity of hope and what an athlete can become. Robeson, the son of a runaway slave and a school teacher, was born in Princeton, New Jersey. At age seven, when Robeson's mother died in an horrendous accident, the family was thrust into deep poverty. Still, took courses in Greek, Latin, History, Physics, Music, Drama, Chemistry, Literature, Sports and Philosophy at an integrated Westfield, New Jersey High School, where he excelled in all. Even though Robeson showed outstanding talent as an athlete, singer and actor, the school principal would not l\llow Robeson to play on the white football team or to sing as a soloist in the glee club because of Robeson's color. Upon graduation from high school in 1915, with honors, Robeson entered Rutgers University on scholarship, where his phenomenal talents as student, athlete, .actor and singer ignited his path to inter national fame. At Rutgers, Robeson earned 12 letters (awards) in track, football, basketball and base-. ball. Named All-American in 1917 and 1918, Robeson was described by famous sports writer Walter Camp as "the greatest defensive end that ever trod the gridiron." Moreover, Robeson's academic ability garnered him elec tion to Phi Beta Kappa during his junior year of college. When he graduated from Rutgers, Robeson studied Law at Columbia University, where he earned his Law degree .in 1923 and met Eslanda Good, a chemist, whom he married, in 1921. Eslanda would become the first Black to obtain a job as an analytical chemist at the Columbia Medical Center. Meanwhile, her husband's acting talent was discovered during this time period when New York Playhouse playwright, Eugene .O'Neil attended a play ("Simon the Cyrenian '') in which Robeson played the lead role. O'Neil would later cast Robeson in plays, which traveled through out America and Europe, earning Robeson instant international pooularitv and critical acclaim . However, Robeson.is most remembered for his roles-in Showboat, JQn!!S, ,Porgy a11c,l Bess and Othello. Reportedly, Robeson's bari-_tone voice catapulted him to fame when he turned a role in a play that called for him to whistle into a song that he immortalized, instead .For his role in. Othello in 1943, Robeson received an ovation that was: called "one of the most prolonged and wildest responses, in the history of the New York Theater." Indeed, Robeson's travels on concert and acting tours included Asia, Europe, the Continued On Page 5

c: m en c Shoe-Shoe all the people in the rld, I bet George Bush wishes he had taken a diversity course. Either that or he had some stiff words for Iraqi security regarding people walking around with shoes in their hands It could have been a bullet But instead, it was a shoe. The current President of the United States laughed it off. But in truth, it was no laughing matter ... not really. Having said that, I imagine, by the time you read this column, David Letterman, Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien will already have beaten me to the punch with punch lines about what happened to our present Commander-in-Chief when he made a surprise visit to Baghdad and during a hurriedly-put-together press con ference had a man who was supposed to have been a news reporter to take off both shoes and throw them consecutively at the President's head. The world watched, but could not believe its eyes! Only God, President Bush and his closest advisors know wpy, at this late date, George W. decided to take a trip to war-torn Iraq. Maybe, it was to convince himself that his manic invasion of that coun try was indeed, not a nightmare of his own making. Perhaps, he wanted to lend support as he has always done -to the troops ove-r there. Or maybe, in grandTexas-style, Mr. Bush sim ply wanted to show the world that he wasn't scared. Whatever his reason, sources close to him have no doubt, begged him not to do that again! I can hear Condoleezza Rice, right now, sidling up beside His Lame-Duckiness, clasping him by the hand and whisper ing in his ear, "BE COOL, MR. PRESIDENT WE'VE ONLY GOT A COUPLE OF WEEKS!" But everybody knows, our present president is not, and has neve r been COOL! Indeed, that Iraqi who threw both his shoes at Bush and got dragged out like so much bad laundry or a hound dog yelping obscenities in Arabic, was lucky George Bush didn't pull his shoes off and throw them right back at him, then give him a winning grin and a "thumbs-up" sign And what indeed, did George think or do or say? In case you missed it, this is what he said "So what if the guy threw his shoe at me?" said Bush to an exasperated news correspondent. It 's one way to gain attention," Bush laughed, then continued, "It's like going to a political rally and having people yell at you. It's like driving. down the street and having people not gesturing with all five fingers (WHAT???) ... "It's a way for people to draw attention." I don't know what the guy's cause is" (HE WANTED TO HIT YOU WITH HIS SHOE!). .. "But one thing is for cer tain ... He caused you to ask me a question about it." Then said George W., "I didn't feel the least bit threatened by it." And when he said that, he reminded me of every time I've gone on a roller-coaster ride and came back down, shaking in m y boots, only to l ook around a t my friends a nd stammer, "I AIN'T SKERRRRED!" I KNEW I was lying ... and so did George W. Bush! No doubt, cultural diversity trainers and historians are having a field-day behind closed doors, of course. They're e-mailing each other, saying, "I told you so!" They're laughing because if George W. or his advisors had taken a diversity course, he would have known that when a Middle Easterner throws a shoe at you, it's an insult of the lowest regard It means, "You are not worth what is on the bottom of my shoe!" However, many an American child has had another take on shoe-throw ing from an angry parent wbo threw a shoe when a shoe was all the parent could put his or -her hands tm. Nevertheless, as he is about to leave office, George W. Bush has been given another nickname: "SHOE-SHOE!" I Black American Insight from page 4 Soviet Union and Spain. Speaking rna n y la'ilgu ages, including Chinese, Russian, Spanish and Gaelic, Robeson refused to sing in front of segregated audiences by either race or class. Robeson sang songs of folk origin by classical composers, songs that supported the defense of freedom, spirituals and secular music as well. I highly recommend two of his albums, "The Power and the Glory," and "Songs of Free Men," for your listening plea sure and a portrait of his genius Paul Robeson died in 1976. Harambee! c m (') m s:: IJJ m ::Jl Senate Seat For Sale? ""''''>1i n,vPrnor Rod agojevich of llinois has been charged with trying to sell the Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. Let it be known that the Senate seat is very important to Black people. There are 100 members of the United States Senate. Only one of them was Black. I don't need to remind you that the lone Black Senator was Barack Obama. With Obama's election to the presidency, currently there are no Black senators. Black folks don't need to take one step forward and one step backward. We also don't need to ever again allow the United States Senate to ever become all white again Black people need to be concerned about who gets the Illinois Senate seat. President-elect Barack Obama should be concerned with who occupies the Illinois Senate seat. We all should be concerned. Including Barack Obama, this illustrious house has had only three Blacl5-s in its histo ry A fourth one at this time is very important. Black peo ple need Black representation in the Senate We need an African American in the Senate and we shouldn't have to bid for or buy a seat. Governmental seats should never be for sale. Did Barack or his repre sentatives talk to the governor or his representatives about the seat? I don't know, but if he didn't have someone talk to the governor, then he should have. He should have because he should have been concerned about the Senate becoming all white again. If we had another Black in the Senate, then the urgency of the Illinois seat would not have been as important. No, Barack Obama should not have been expected to cut any deals. He should have only used the influence of his office. to influence the process. Governmental offi cials, including presidents have always theii : posi tions known and have used their office to influence important decisions. The crime here is not with Obama. Instead it was vested with the governor of Illinois who all but advertised the sale of the seat on eBay. Obama must not be expected to represent Blacks 'T1 just because he is By rthe same token, he should 0 not fail to represent Blacks just because he is Black.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer A grassroot group called Citizens Who Support Keeping Rogers Park Public, met last Monday and decided to incorporate and establish a foundation to help protect the legacy and preserve the history of Rogers Park. Spokesman for the group, James Ransom, said the process to get that done hasn't been developed yet. "During our meeting, we mutually agreed to incorpo rate and create a foundation, but we never discussed the process. That's what we'll discuss during our next meetings." Ransom said he's sending a call out to the community to anyone who has photos or any memorabilia of Rogers Park to contact him "Our regular meetings will continue to be held on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. at the 34th Street Church of God and Christ on the corner of 34th Street and 21st Avenue. "The main topic of our dis cussions will continue to be the process to get the exist ing agreement between the City of Tampa, YMCA, and Tampa Sports Authority regarding Rogers Park amended. That's our goal. We are working with TSA and the YMCA to get that done, and the specific language will be forward to Mayor Pam Iorio in a letter from the Sports Authority when that issue has been resolved."

Harris said the first payments, that came out of a trust fund, were sent out in the amount of $9,000 each totaling $250 million in pay ments so far. "In January or February, those who have qualified will get a second payment. The amount of those payments i s n t known at this time.

Entertainment No-Show Queen Of Soul Pipes Up At Benefit Concert ARETHA FRANKLIN NEW YORK Organizers of a military benefit concert in New York say Aretha Franklin missed an award presenta-tion but showed up for the main event hours later. The Queen of Soul was a no-show when she was to receive the Torch of Freedom Award on Sunday in Times Square. The award was given by the Soldiers', Sailors', Marines', Coast Guard and Airmen's Club. A spokesman for the concert organizers says Franklin went on as scheduled later at the Nokia Theatre. She performed "New York, New York," a medley of military tunes and her classic "Respect." It's unclear why Franklin missed the earlier engagement. Will Smith: It's All About Helping Others WILL SMITH MINNEAPOLIS-Will Smith is bringing the message of his new movie "Seven Pounds" to the Midwest with a promotional tour that also turned into a fund raiser. In the film, which opens n ationwide Friday, Smith portrays a suicidal man determined to change the lives of several strangers. "If there's a message, it's 'you gotta help somebody.' Even ifit's somebody's car breaking down, use your cell phone. Something little like that. We gotta help one another to get the quality of : I K Made a-:r' eys --life we're all striving for," he said in an interview with the Star Tribune. Smith's appearance Friday for a local premier at a theater in suburban Edina was also a fundraiser for Second Harvest Heartland, the state's largest hungerrelief organization. Tickets were given to the first 250 people who donated nonperishable food. He and Vikings player Bernard Berrian also don ated 300 h o lid ay dinn e r s to the o r ga nization. "It's cool to have the goal of being the biggest movie star in the world. But why? It's been revealed to me that the question is: Whose life is better because you woke up today?" Smith said he realized he had drifted out of contact with everyday people on Nov.4. "I sat there with my children and my 16-year-old son couldn't understand how I didn't know (the election) was over already. He was like "i ou're out of he said.

LIMIT 2 WITH THIS AD ONLY!! Chris Brown Artist Of The,Year CHRIS BROWN NEW YORK--The accolades keep coming for Chris Brown -this time, he's been named Billboard's top artist of 2008. "It's bigger than what I can ever imagine. It's unexpected totally, so it's a surprise," Brown said . It shouldn't be too much of a surprise for Brown. He not only nabbed the Billboard honor in 2006, he had a great '08, with solo hits like "With You" and "Forever" as well as successful collaborations, like the Jordin Sparks duet "No Air." Last month, he won three awards at. the American Music Awards, including artist of the year. .Jennifer Hudson Starts Shooting MuslcVIdec JENNIFER HUDSON NEW 'YORK -Jennifer.

The body of her nephew, 7-year-old Julian King, was found in a sport utility vehicle three days later. Teen Rapper Soulja Boy Building Hip-Hop Empire NEW YORK --Looking like a spoiled kid forced to sit in on his dad's business meeting, DeAndre "Soulja Boy Tell'em" Way slumps in a black leather chair at Billboard's New York offices, twiddling his thumbs on his two-way. He's distracted. w;th BlackBerry in hand, the -year-old rapper/producer laughs out loud at an incoming message, then looks up at his best friend, Arab, who is smirking back at him. The two have tuned out ;he dialogue around them, leaving Soulja Boy's manager, Derrick Crooms, to handle the matters at hand. They are having their own chuckle-worthy conversation via their mobile devices, and they're not letting anyone else in on the joke. It's easy to dismiss Soulja Boy as a run ... of-the-mill teenager, but appearances can be deceiving. His breakthrough was due in part to his Internet fame, and many consider him a Web savvy business prodigy. By the time Soulja Boy signed to Collipark/Interscope Records in summer 2007, he'd already gar nered a huge online follow ing from his YouTube chan nel and MySpace page. "I was one of the first artists to have a YouTube account, ifnot the first. I joined two months after the site launched," Soulja Boy says. "I faked it until I made it. I acted like I was a celebrity. I was signing autographs, taking pictures, but I had no record deal. I was living the life of a star, but I was just a regular kid then." Soulja Boy then released "Crank That, the top-selling digital track of 2007, SOULJABOY more set, "iSouljaBoyTellEm, -due December 16 from Colli pa rk/1 n ters cope Records. T.I., Shawty Lo, Sean Kingston, Yo Gotti and Gucci Mane -who Soulja Boy calls his mentor -make guest appearances. BUILDING THE BUSINESS The rapper/entrepreneur has been busy on other fronts as well. In November, Soulja Boy launched an animated/live-action cartoon, by the creators of Adult Swim's "Robot Chicken," on his Web site. He plays a celebrity teenager who has to go back to class and finish the school year. Soulja Boy hopes a TV network will pit:k up the series, which combines animated and live-action characters, with Alfonso Ribeiro ("The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air") as the school prin"cipal. Soulja Boy also aims to branch out into acting. "fm a comedic person I want my first movie role to reflect my personality," he says In addition to partnering with apparel company Yums on the Soulja Boy Block Star sneaker and a clothing line, he plans to launch a videogame next year with an undisclosed game maker. That deal, Soulja Boy says, came about the same way he landed his record deal from the Internet. ,according to Nielsen SoundScan, which at 3.9 million digital copies sold is the third-biggest song down-"I put up a video on load since such data started Y?uTube challenging Xbox being tracked in 2003 He's Live ,players. around the gone on to sell 943,000 Next you know f h' d b 1b ..... got an e-mail from a ,. cop!es o IS e u a um, .

Buccaneers Dig Deep Hole The Tampa Bay Bucs refused the Atlanta Falcons' attempt to give them a game. That is exactly what the Falcons tried to do. Time and time again, the Atlanta host made the Bucs defense look like all stars while making the Buc's offense look like the peewee league . In losing to the Falcons 13-10 in overtime, the Bucs dug themselves a deep hole .as far as the playoffs is con cerned. The Bucs are now 2 games behind the Carolina Panthers with two games to play. They cannot afford to lose another game. They also find themselves tied. for second place with the Atlanta Falcons. Both teams have 9-5 records with two games to go.

Sports Falcons Beat Buccaneers In OT With those two dominating Tampa Bay, the Atlanta Falcons managed to overcome their mistakes. Turner ran for 152 yards, Abraham had three sacks, and the Falcons finished off a sloppy performance with Jason Elam's 34-yard field goal in overtime Sunday, pulling out a crucial 13-10 vi G tory ove r the Buccaneers to tighte n up the NFC play off race. "To win a game like this, when you're not hitting on all cylinders, is huge," said Mike Smith, Atlanta's rookie coach. Two guys deserved the bulk of the credit. Turner carried a career-high 32 times, including a couple of big runs on the wil'\ning drive. Abraham kept coming at Tampa Bay from all directions, including a possession-ending sack in overtime that caused Bucs tRckle Jeremy Trueblood to throw up his hands in frustration. MUCHAELTURNER And JOHN ABRAHAM On Abraham's first sack, he shoved a Tampa Bay lineman into Brian Griese. On the second, he crawled under tackle Donald Penn to get at the fill-in quarterback. ''This will be a fun game to sit down and watch on film," said Abraham, who had his third three-sack game of the season, giving him 15-112 overall. Atlanta (9-5) twice turned it over near the Tampa Bay end zone and had a huge breakdown on special teams late in the fourth quarter, allowing the Bucs to block a Titans' Haynesworth To Have MRI On Injured Leg ALBERT HAYNESWORTH . 'Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was injured near the end of the game when his left leg .was caught uq.der the ,pile. _He remained on 'the turf for several mi' nutes while Titans officials looked at him. He finally got up and hobbled off the field The Tennessean reported that he will have an MRI in Nashville on Monday. "It looked like, seeing him on the field and hearing his moans and groans, it sounds like he i s going to be out for [a while]," defensive end Jevon Kearse said, according to the newspaper. "But seeing him walking around the training room just now it looks very promising. I know when I had my major injury [a torn ACL) a couple of years ago there was no way I was going to be walking any. So I know it is not that bad at least." Titans Owner: QB Young .To Get 'Another Chance' KEIU\Y. And VINCE YOVNG HOUSTON .Even as Kerry .. Collins-we-fit through h .is worst performJtnCe of the season, Vi.Jice Young stoo d idly on the sideline dunng 13-12 loss to Houston on Sunday. Team owner Bud 'Adams told The Tennessean in a story Sunday that he's in no way disappointed with Young's progres.s, even though Young has only appeared in two games this season. But the former Texas star and Houston native has thrown only one pass since the opener and continues to wonder when he'll play again or where he fits-thing to do with that," said Young. "All I can do is be ive of my teammates and that's what I'm doing." Adams told the Nashville newspaper that he has no inten'tio';r1 .of releasing Young before his contract expires after the 2011 season. "He is a .young guy and he is learning. He is still grow ing up," Adams told the newspaper in an interview l-ast week from his penthouse office in Texas. "Vince is under contract for three more years, so he is not going anywhere. punt that set up Matt Bryant's tying field goal with 48 seconds left in regu lation. But the Falcons stuffed Tampa Bay's only possession of overtime, then drove 55 yards for Elam's winning kick. The Bucs (9-5 ) have backto-hack losses for the first time this season and missed a chance to possibly clinch their playoff berth. They were hampered by 11 penalties for 76 yards. "I'm not going to take any credit away from Atlanta, but I don't feel like they were the better team," said Tampa Bay receiver Antonio Bryant, who had eight catches for 108 yards and got into a brief confrontation with Smith on the Falcons' sideline. The Falcons pulled even with Tampa Bay in the NFC South behind first-place Carolina, ensuring their first winning season since 2004 Kltfln Confirms He's Leaving Bucs MONTE KIFFIN ATLANTA -Monte Kiffin confirmed Sunday what's been pretty obvious for a couple of weeks.

Ms. Jordan and her niece, Ms. Kimberly Jordan, said the story being told by Johnny's fiance just isn't true. They idtmtified her as Khija Williams. "We were told he was stabbed when he was climbing through a window at the house. That doesn't make sense to us, because he had a key, so why-would he have to climb through. a window? He also had chronic tis, ai:id could .barely walk, so we don't believe he could even make it through a win dow." Ms. Dorothy Jordan said her son and Williams had been living with her up until 3 months ago. "They argued a lot because h,e didn't like the way she talked to me. She was very disrespectful, and said JOHNNY JOHNSON things that just weren't right for a young lady. She was so skinny and it was amazing how someone that small could have that kind of mouth on them." Ms. Jordan said her son had planned to leave Williams because. he had grown tired of the way she talked to her and the constant arguing. Kimberly said she thinks Williams just had a nasty attitude. "He would describe her as being childish. We don't know why he went back to her this weekend since he was so fed up with her." Dorothy Jordan said her son had visited her twice before heading to Clearwater early Saturday morning. "He never failed to call me. We talked all the time, especially about the !ems he was having with. that girl. I .thought he was going to move back in with me. I think he went back just to get his things.
