Rachel Johnson said they have been very patient and appreciate the efforts of investigators who have stayed in constant contact with the family throughout the process. "Every time we've called them, they have. been there for us and assured us they would be making an arrest. They explained how complex the case was because so many agencies were involved." Rachel Johnson said everyone is still upset and want justice. "We're upset that Brown still hasn't confessed. He told somebody he was locked up with what he did, and we hope when he goes to court, he confesses. We just want him to admit he killed Jennifer."

Power Ball Mania And The Black Communitv were no jackpot winners, last Saturday, ._ . . .. .. 949,953 players across America won more . i . . ...us, did you win any of that money? Unfortunately, we haven't seen any of the proceeds. But according to Florida Lottery officials, "Floridians spent more than $7.7 million in tickets on the State's first Power Ball drawing, making it the biggest sale of tickets for a first drawing in Roller-Ball history." Now, isn't that something? Added Lottery officials, "Although no one won last Wednesday's $uo million jackpot, more than 150,000 tickets won their owners prizes from $3 to $50,000." Once again, we ask our readers, "DID YOU GET ANY OF THAT?" According to our friends the Lottery folks, "Power Ball tickets have already brought in more than $3 million for Florida's Educational Enhancement Trust Fund." We are a society of free-will. That means what we do with our money is our own business. Yet, how can we ignore storm warnings bearing down upon us? The Lottery and Power Ball officials say not to worry. No dlih, that's what they get paid to say. Pow.er Ball, lottery, quick pick, bingo slot machines .. It's all a gamble. Our question again, Did you get of Cell Phone Etiauene While At The Wheel o doubt, people you know have mentioned having :"near-miss" traffic accidents either because of use or driver's use of a cell-phone while driving. Consequently, the fact that the National Safety Council has recently called for a ban on all cellphone use while driving should come as. n.o 'Referring to cell-phone use while driving as dangerous, and as the cause of many traffic fatalities the National.Safety Council has launched. a campaign urging all states to ban the use of hand-held and .handsfree cell phones. Citing a Harvard Center for Risk Analysis study, Safety Council representatives estimate as many as 2,000 deaths and 12,000 injuries a .year are caused by cellphone use while behind the wheel. Accordingly, cellphone use is more distracting than-passengers for drivers. However, only six states currently ban the use of hand-held cell-phones while driving, while 17 states ban cell-phone use by so-called inexperienced drivers. In response, the Safety Council plans to urge Congress to enact laws that will offer incentives to states that enact cell-phone use laws. Meanwhile, we suggest drivers should limit their celloo:t phone use to emergency use only. lit fact, we urge driW vers to delay receiving calls on their cell-phones until CJ they have reached their destinations. After all, most callers can page a cell-phone for emergency calls. Tired 01 Telemarlleten;t you tired of telearketers calling ur home or your cellular phone at the most inconvenient of times? Are you tired of pushy salespeople who don't get the message when you tell them that you're not interested? Well, get in line with the rest of the country While we all understand that the person is just doing his or her job, it doesn't alleviate the aggrava tion of running to answer the telephone only to discover that it's just a telemarketer. Of course, many of us have caller id, but if you're like me, when the telephone rings, you just automatically answer it. (It probably has something to do with not having your glass es readily available and that small print is next to impossi-. ble to read). But, the truth of the matter is, if you don't answer it, then that continuous ringing gets on your nerves. So, what is a body to do? Help is on the way, in the form of a toll free "DO NOT CALL" number. If you don't want to be disturbed by telemarketers, you simply call 888382-1222 from the number you wish to be blocked. It's supposed to be a national list that blocks the number for 5 years. It works like this: you call from the phone you want blocked, the prompt tells you to enter the area code and the number and then it tells you that you have completed the process. The message also tells you that if you receive calls 31 days after you have the ritimber that you can lake action against the company. But, you must get the compa ny's name or telephone num ber. This do not call number has been around for several years. What makes it important now is the increased use of cell phones. I have heard a rumor that cell numbers will become public information in the near future. If this happens (and all things are possible), you could acquire a hefty bill just by answering calls from tele marketers. I'm sure some companies will protect their customers, but others may not. So, as the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Paul laurence Dunbar: EPilogue t dreams we :have and how .. they fly I Like \ [ rosy clouds across the sky; I of wealth, of fame, of sure success, I of love that comes to cheer and bless; I And how they wither, how they fade I The waning wealth, the jilting jade I The fame that for a moment gleams,/ Then flies forever, dreams, ah, dreams!" (Excerpt from Dreams, by fa.ul . Poet, playwright and author of at least two dozen librettqs, and essays, Paul Laurence Dunbar wrote the majority of his works in Standard English. Yet, his poetry done in Kentucky Black dialect received the most exposure and acclaim; a concept that often troubled Dunbar. William Dean Howells' full page review (){.Dunbar's dialect poetry in Harper's Weekly created an audience for Dunbar's dialect poetry to the exclusion of his Standard English verse. Thus, Dunbar became labeled as a dialect writer. In retrospect, Paul Laurence Dunbar's. life story is a lesson in perseverance for Black men, today. Dunbar faced great difficulty in finding a job after high school graduation, even with his talent and education He finally took a ]ob as an eleva tor operator in Dayton, Ohio, where he used his free time to write books of poetry and sell them for a dollar to clients riding the elevator Dunbar spent years of self-publishing or depending on white benefactors to publish his books of poems, which sometimes -received les; favorable' revietJ;'' suffered a failed marr iage a nd poor health (died qftuberculosis). Yet, Dunbar persevered and ultimately achieved international fame. Dunbar wrote the lyrics for a musicaJ <;ome(jy play, "In Dahomey." Billed as one of the "more successful theatri cal productions of its time," the all-Black cast play opened on Broadway in 1903.and toured England and America for four years. The diversity of Dunbar's talent nev'er received wide publication in our English and History c:lasses.: However, Dunbar's essays--and poems received _-wide pUblication in and journals 'that ;argeted white readership, such as the New YOrk Times, Saturday Evening Post, Lippincott's Monthly, etc. Dunbar's style is said fo have interpreted "images 'of the Black experience through lyrical poetry written in Standard English verse inspired by Shakespeare, Shelley etc., and in equally sophisticated dialect verse ... that place the Black speaker at the' center of the was described as "known .for ';it'S cdlorful l1,lnguage ... conversational tone . rhetorical structure." While some Black..critics accused Dunbar of perpetuating-and negative of Black life as a means Of selling his poetry to white critics, others recognized Dunbar's _quiet and veiled "outrage" of racism and Jim in poems such as "Frederick Douglass," "We Wear the On Page s

Five Men lnAPhotouraphl_ picture was placed );;] ht above the cut-ine. That's newspaper talk for the crease on a front page that separates the top part of the paper. The headline above the photograph was unsophisticated. It simply announced, "PRESI DENTS PAST PRESENT, FUTURE!" But the picture that followed the headline said it all! And its impact will echo, for years to come Five men paused long enough a group photograph ... five of the most powerful human beings in the history of the modern world. Indeed, the picture they posed for was as important and as improbable as if the Egyptian pharaohs Akhenaton, Seti the First, Ramseses the Great, Tutankhamen and Tuthmosis the Third had stopped in the middle of their busy schedules to meet in one bunch and take a picture for posterity Not since, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill allowed a picture of them seated side-by-side at the Conference of Yalta had the world seen such an imposing collectio'n of power, present and future And there they stood, each man smiling for the world to see! Jimmy Carter, whitehaired, broad-nosed, thick-. iipped and laughing as if he had not a care in the world, looking amiably to the man standing next to him, whose hair was also the color of snow and whose Elvis Presley expression belied a steadiness of heart and an attituae of few regrets; that was William Jefferson Clinton. Standing slightly in front of him though still touching shoulders was the diminutive, pixyish George W. Bush, silver-haired "Dennis-the-M en ace" whose legacy would either be written in marble or mud. He was accompanied by his f a ther, George Bush, whose hair, for some reason had not turned as grey as had his son's. And standing between the elder Bush and his son was a man whose hair was still black with youth and whose smile was untarnished, perhaps because it was untried. Barack Obama, matinee-handsome, stood gazing into the photographer's lens, as did his previous contemporaries, with a look that was as pensive as it was promising. What you or I would have given to know what they were thinking, at that moment, captured forever by a photographer's eye! And to think that in the next eight days, you and I will be witnesses to what will no doubt be one of the most important events in the 21st century! Certainly, that is enough to cause each of us to remember where we were and what we were doing, when that day happened! Five of the most powerful men in the world stopped to get their picture taken, all-at once. Two of them had silver hair. Two of them were father and son. And one of them was Black. And the Black man was about to become the next President of the United States. Perhaps, there will be yet, another face, on Mt. Rushmore. 1 Black American Insight from page 4 I Mask," and "Sympathy: I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." On the other hand, Dunbar's "Little Brown Baby" confirms a slave father's love for his children, a concept foreign to whites at the time. Finally, other critics view some of .Dunbar's works as creations of a "dou ble voice" in the use of ture as in When Malindy Sings," describing whites more comic than Blacks. Though Dunbar died at the young age of 33, he won the loyalty and admiration of millions who memorized his verses and passed the love of his poetry on to future gener ations. Indeed, Dunbar. was h .ailed by W.E.B.DuBois, Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglass and other Black leaders of his time. Nearly 100 years later, we celebrate Paul Laurence Dunbar, his genius and his ability to thrill audiences, yes terday and today.

In Black neighborhoods, all hell broke out. People burned, destroyed, looted and beat-up people. Blacks were upset and had every reason to be. But rioting is and was not the answer. All of this lawlessness didn't accomplish anything. All it did was destroy Black neighborhoods, hurt Black businesses, made life much more difficult for those who live in the communities and broke a bunch of laws It further illustrated a point that I have been trying to make for months. That is, when a police officer shoots a Black person, we go crazy and tear up our own communities. Yet, when a Black senselessly kills another Black for whatever reason, nothing is said or done by Blacks. What is the difference? Does the value of Black life depend upon who takes that life? A person is just as dead when killed by a Black as they are when killed by a police officer Should Blacks riot when a Black kills another Black? That answer is no. But we shouldn't riot when a police kills a Black No, we should not let these killings go in either situation. We must not remain silent like nothing happened. We should scream loudly and consistently that justice be done. We need to call, write and go to the po-wers of authority to demand that correct actions are taken We need to demonstrate, march and stay the course until justice is rendered. There are better ways to deal with these senseless killings besides breaking laws and tearing up our neighborhoods. We need to work with each other and to work with law officials to bring killers to justice. It must not matter who got killed, who did the killing or what color they are A killing is a killing. Too many killing go on in our communities. We need to make every effort to reduce and even stop these killings We cannot blame these killings on the economy. I believe the proper place to put the blame is on decreased emphasis placed on moral values and on human life. What happened in Oakland should not have happened. The young Black should not have been killed. Blacks should not have rioted and "T1 the police officer must be rbrought to justice. Blacks need to calm down, put away 0 their matches and stay vigi,., larit to make sure that justice en is done in this case m This unfortunate incident should serve to make Blacks z come to the realization that m r;" we must be upset anytime a m Blackis killed.

For sure, the last eight years have been a record-breaking nightmare for most American corporatioils, more terrifying for small businesses and their owners. We have witnessed increasing numbers in the breakdown of our families, crime rates went through the roof and Black American men struggled to provide for their wives, children and "baby mamas." Unemployment statistics soared and families were forced to literally pack up, vacate and walk away from.ho.mes unable to pay their mortgages. In these changing times, not only did middle and lower-income wage earners "feel the crunch,". many and "richer .than Richie Rich" folk found selyes standiJ1g in SO\JP line,s and shopping in thrift stores. When well dressed, high-heel wearing and every-hair-inits-place women pull out coupons, it is time to check the dock on the wall! With that in mind, I want to share the lyrics of my second all-time favorite group in the world. When they were making excellent music, lyrics and dance steps. The Jacksons produced a song entitled, Can You Feel It? And the opening lyrics went a little something like this, "Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it. Less than two months ago, we watched, as did the world, the drama and production unfold as the final two candi dates for the highest office in this country "battled" it out. It was not just their wits that took center stage, either.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Lilliaii. Scott has seen how secular music can have an impact on the lives of our young people. She also saw the message a lot of that music was delivering to the youth, and decided to do something about it. At a young age, Scott was introduced to the music industry,. and her gift and calling were reveale. d by God through her pastor, Steven D. Kelsie of God's Vision For Life Christian Center . As manager of Real Word Records, Scott has become a seasoned veteran in the Gospel music industry and has worked with nationally known artist Lil' Prophet, Pettidee, Triple D, Tiffany Anderson, and others. She's also involved in a lot of event promotions. "We want to go into the dark areas of the world to present our music to the youth and win souls," said Scott. "I see a lot of our youth seeking a positive message now. They know they can be LILLIAN SCOTT what they want to be and do what God has called them to do. All you have to do is make the right choices." Scott said today, our childri:m are growing up with a lot of negativity around them, and without the guidance form the home,. they are making a lot of bad deci sions. "Before I came to God, I was in the secular industry. But that side has more darkness, and when I came over to God, I began to see the light. God has shown me you don't have to be degrad ing Our young people have disturbed spirits and they LIL' PROPHET want love without knowing what love is." Scott helps aspiring Gospel rap artists and singers get the exposure they need, and also aids anointed ministers. "God has given this generation many types of music that peo.ple can relate to with beats and most importantly, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Scott will be a part of this weekend's Krunk For Christ event at the Masque Theater. Joining her will be one of her clients, Lil' Prophet.

Football Is An Upsening Game The NFL playoffs continued last weekend with a series of upsets. Of the four games played, the favorite team was upset in three of the four games. The upsetting started when the Baltimore Ravens defeated the favorite Tennessee Titans. The biggest upset came when the Arizona Cardinals upset the Super Bowl favorite Carolina Panthers. The uprising of the underdogs continued on Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles, a long shot to make the play offs, victimized the defend-ing Super Bowl champions, the New York Giants. The San Diego Chargers roared into Pittsburgh with dreams of making the weekend a clean sweep of upsets. The favorite Pittsburgh Steelers was having none of that. The Steelers used a strong second half, a crushing defense, a revived running game and an effective passing game and quickly put the Chargers .away and ended an upsetting weekend. Tiger Woods To Get Paid Tiger Woods is still rehabbing from his left knee injury and honing his game for a return to the tour. But in the meantime, Tiger earned his first PGA check for 2009 without even playing in the tournament. In fact he wasn't even in town. Tiger will earn just shy of $55,000 for last place money in the Mercedes Benz Championship. Tiger qualified to play in that tournament with victories in 2008. PGA Tour rules provide that any player who qualifies for a no cut PGA event automatically gets last place money if an injury prevents them from playing. That is exactly what happened to Woods, so he will be paid last place money that approach-es $55,000. Giddens Picks USF Football Armwood's Ryan Giddens has s elected the University of South Florida as the place he will play his football for the next four years. Ryan's decision is a coup for USF because the Armwood star is one of the best defensive linemen in the country. Giddens had over 70 Division I scholarship offers. Rumors have it that Hillsborough High super running back Lindsey Lamar has made a visit to the USF campus and is seriously considering playing football for USF. Should Lamar go to USF, this could be USF's top recruiting class ever ... Repons: Dunuv Decides To Retire The Indianapolis Colts scheduled a news conference Monday to announce the retirement of coach Tony Dungy. Tony Du:D.gys stature in the world of professional football took root in Indy. He leaves the Colts with a pristine overall resume, which includes 148 career wins, an unmatched 10 consecutive playoff seasons, and being the only black coach to win a Super Bowl. Foxsports.com and The Indianapolis Star reported Monday that Dungy, 53, will step down after seven seasons in Indianapolis. A source told Foxsports.com that Dungy has talked his decision over with family members and they decided it was the best time for him to step aside. Dungy, the source said, was at the team's complex in Indianapolis on Monday morning saying goodbyes to players and team employ ees. The Colts have designated associate coach Jim Caldwell as Dungy's eventual replacement. Since winning the Super Bowl after the 2006 season, Dungy has thought long and hard each offseason about how much longer he really wants to work in the NFL. He said after the Colts' overtime playoff loss to the San Diego Chargers in the AFC wild-card game nine da ys ago that he would spend about a week decid ing wh ether to return for an TONY DUNGY eighth season as coach. He spent much Of that time in Tampa, Fla., where his wife Lauren and children moved full-time about a year ago. The Dungys had the week to contemplate his future with the Colts, but a trip to New York for son Jordan's surgery on a broken. leg occupied their time. Jordan Dungy is back home in Florida and doing well after surgery. In Dungy's 13 seasons as a head coach, includ ing six with Tampa Bay, he's put together a sparkling resume. He has 148 career wins, including playoffs, and ranks 19th all-time in victories. He's the only black coach to win a Super Bowl the first coach in league his tory to reach the postseason in 10 consecutive seasons and the only coach to preside over six straight seasons of 12 wins or more Barklev Takes leave Of Absence LOS ANGELES -In his pursuit of .. um, yeah ..

Sports Second WitnessPoints To Harrison MARVIN HARRISON Another witness has pointed to Harrison. The Philadelphia district attorney who decided last week against charging Marvin Harrison in nection with an April 29 shooting that left three peo. pie wounded did so despite being in possession of a statement from a second victim who claimed he saw the Indianapolis Colts wide receiver gripping a gun during the altercation, a law enforcement source told ESPN The Magazine The statement by Robert Nixon would apparently corroborate the statement of Dwight Dixon, another shooting victim, and contra dict Harrison, who admits that he was in a fistfight with Dixon but insists he was unarmed when gunfire erupted outside his North Philadelphia car wash, Chuckie's Garage, following the altercation. Three J)eople were injured during the shooting. Dixon was shot_ in the left hand. Nixon was struck in his bitclt by one of the shots that . . ricocheted up West Thompson Street. A third victim, a child sitting in a nearby car, suffered an eye injury Jrom. shattered glass. At a news conference on Tuesday, Philadelphia D.A Lynne Abraham said she would not bring charges against Harrison, citing a lack of credible witnesses. "I'm pretty comfortable I know who fired the gun," Abraham said. "But I'm not going to say because I don't have the evidence." -aepon: Giants. Mav Keep Burress The New York Giants tried to play through the Plaxico Burress fiasco. After getting knocked out of the playoffs, they might be ready to bring him back.

"Your margin of error is way less when you don't have a guy: with that kind of out there," Reese said of Burress, according to th,e "so you have to capitalize on every opportunity. you have and we were ,;not able to make enotigh plays."

"No," Jones said wh.en asked if he was involved in the shooting in any way in an interview with ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. The Dallas Cowboys released Jones on Wednesday after a turbulent season in which he was sus pended six games for an offfield scuffle and made a relatively small impact on the field. In another interview conducted Satuday, this one with CBS' NFL pregame show, Jones hinted that his days with the Cowboys aren't necessarily over. His release came after "Outside the Lines" reporter John Barr contacted the NFL, the Cowboys and Jones' attorneys about the piece scheduled to air in which three Atlanta-area men allege that Jones arranged for someone to shoot at thein two months after the football player was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in 2007.

One of the shooting victims told "Outside Lines that he had a dispute with Jones inside the strip club and that not long after he and the two others left the club, a hail of bullets struck their car. The NFL knew about the inci dent, but charges were never brought against anyone because the victims did not see the sho oter.

The rapper, one of Obama's biggest celebrity boosters, has announced that he's playing a concert in Washington on Jan. 19, the day before Obama officially drops "elect" from his title. Jay-Z will perform for a crowd of less than 2,000 at the Warner Theatre. Kanve West savs He'll Pose Naked And 'Break Everv Rule 01 Hip-Hop' Kanye West has become a worldwide music icon by always telling us the naked truth as he sees it. In the February issue of Vibe -the only cover story he's done to promote BOBs & Heartbreak -the Grammy winner contemplates baring even more than that. "I made a decision. I wanna make popular music, but I want less fans," he told writer Sean Fennessey when asked if he was com fortable with fame "I want the freedom of having less fans. It's like the freedom of having less money. If you have less money, you have less responsibility. It's like Bjork. If she wanted to pose naked, you'd be like, 'Oh, that's Bjork.' But if I wanted to pose naked, people would draw all type of things into it. I definitely feel like, in the next however many years, if I work out for two months, that I'll pose naked. I break every rule and mentality of hiphop, of black culture, of American culture." (Kanye had some things to say about his photo on the magazine's cover, too.) Kanye clarified that by KANYEWEST "less fans" he meant having a core of 20,000 devotees who understand him, rather than a swell of 100,000 "fly by-night" followers who just favor him because he's the hot thing out. West also gave his fake on some of his peers, telling the publication that he refuses to say anything negative about fellow performers, but has no problem giving praise where it is due. "I believe Beyonce is the greatest performer of our generation," he offered. "I believe I am the greatest entertainer of this generation. I go neck-and-neck on Jay-Z and [Lil] Wayne as far as who's the best lyricist Jay-Z has longevity
