"The troopers (Alabama State Troopers) beat us off the bridge and white men on horses beat us b;1ck to the church The only qualification the men on the horses needed was to hate Blacks." "It made news all over the world. When we marched the second time, we marched, placed in a foster home. He had participated in several other marches and was told by his Social Worker that he needed to be in school. "She told me if I participated in the march, I would be pue. out of the foster home. I told her she didn't understand, it was something I had to do." Smiley said when he. returned to the foster home, his : clothes were outside. He slept at the SCLC office and in churches. After he turned 16, Dr.:lGng: offered him a job. "I was one-of the youngest _employees on his national staff. Our job was to go into 1 ' cities and prepare for the marches. I participated in the March Against Fear in 1966 from Memphis to Jackson, Mississippi as a staff in em-. .... ber." In March 2009, Smiley and others were honored at the 44th Anniversary of "Bloody Sunday." He was also induct .ed into the Hall of Fame of Foot Soldiers.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Ms. Callaway-Monroe was driving an SUV behind another vehi cle driven by her brother, Shawn. As the two vehicles traveled south on Interstate 95 near Ormond Beach, troopers said a tire blew on Callaway's vehicle, causing it to flip several times. Two women and five children who were passengers in that vehicle were ejected as it rolled through the median. Stephanie CallawayMonroe was pronounced dead at the scene. Angalia Whicker, 34, and Cyenna Watts, 9, were pronounced dead at the Halifax Medical Center. Sarah Barnum, mother of Ms. Whicker, said her fam ily had called to say they were STEPHANIE CALLAWAYMONROE leaving Jacksonville and on their way to Tampa.

Fund Set Up For Child Family members of Isiah Ian McGuire have set up an account to receive donations on behalf of the umonth-old. Robles, 25, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the child's death. An autopsy revealed the child has suffered multiple internal injuries and a head injury that was fatal. ISIAH IAN MCGUIRE Robles had reportedly been the only person with the child from 2:20 p.m. until 8:11p.m. last Tuesday when he called for an ambulance.

Last week, at two recent local collegiate graduation ceremonies, something happened that had never happened before. At both institutions of higher learning, hundreds of graduates mounted the stage, and received their sheepskins. But unlike years past, this time the president of each institution avoided shaking the graduates' hands. An audience, which consisted of parents, family and well-wishers hooted and clapped, as well-wishers had always done. But as someone later told one of our staff members, "When the President refused to shake students' hands, a chill went through the audience." America is changing. No. That is incorrect. America has changed! A possible pandemic has caused alterations in our culture that less than one wee k ago, we would have thought insane, if not laughable. After all, what is an American, without a handshake? -But local colleges and universities are n q'J the only institutions to have felt the sting of attitudinal reorganization. Churches have changed also. Witness a recent Catholic Mass wherein the priest informed his parishioners, due to Parish Council decisions, congregation members would no longer be given Communion hosts on their tongues. Instead, they would be handed the wafers in their palms. Furthermore, communal cups for communion wine would be done away with. Finally, parishioners would no longer embrace or shake hands during service, but would exchange greetings without touching. So, we want to know: if swine flu could cause a society to give up its hands, what -in il socalled time of pandemic -would we be called upon to give up, next? A Needed Realitv Check D on't exhale yet. We still have a lot of work to do! For, just Pres. Barack Obama released his too Days Report ."of achievements since. he inherited the White House, th.e.Southern Poverty Law Center :;. jreleased its spring issue. Intelligence Report reminding ":. us that all is not well wltii'racial America. : Revealing the growth of hate groups in .our society, wherein hate groups now number 926, the Intelligence Report annfpnced, "hate group activity in the United States was'llisturbing and widespread throughout the year 2008/' In fact, according to the report, 38 new hate groups sprang up, capping a 50 percent increase in the number of such organizations over the past eight years. And the report gets worse. PJ;'oving racist-extremism isn't a oneway street, the report observed: a Black a nti-.Semitic extremist group became more vocal and visible during 2008, as opposed to previous years. The Southern Poverty Law Centersseminalreport concludes the "three most active and dangerous white supremacist groups in America continue to be the Ku Kltlx Klan, neo-Nazis and racist skinheads. Though not widely reported, the growth in hate groups was fueled by continued national debates on immigration laws, media reports about the apprehension and deportation -.:1' of illegal immigrants and on the subject of President Obama's successful campaign. Members of the Supreme White Alliance (SWA) were Heed The Warnings The World Health Organization (WHO) has rated the outbreak of th: e'"Y,jms _known as the swi p e flJI # 5 out : of # 6. This means that the organization feels that the flu has reached pandemic proportions, show ing up in several countries in theworld. The flu has been di3:gnosed in several states iri this country including 14 confirmed cases in Florida The first thing we must realize is that people do not contract the flu from eating pork. It is an air-borne viral infection, just like other strains of the flu. Secondly, there are no guarantees of who will contract the disease and who will not. However, to lessen the chances of becoming ill, peo ple should heed the warnings of health officials. So far, the cases of the flu that have been diagnosed are milder than some of those in Mexico, where it is believed the flu began to spread. However, there is one death attributed to the disease and that is of an infant in Texas. Officials are telling every one to take the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the illness. The advice that makes the most sense is, if you are not feeling well and have flu-like symp toms, then stay at home. If your child is not feeling well and has flu like symptoms, keep them home So far, three Hillsborough County Schools have been clos ed and there are 5 proba ble cases of the flu in Hillsborough County. Throughout the state, there are probable cases in at least 9 counties. While it would be a safe bet to say that the disease has spread all over the country, the key is not to panic. Dr. Richard Besser, Acting Director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said while the virus is widespread it doesn't mean that everyone is infect ed. So, the best thing anyone can do is to wash your hands often. This will eliminate the spreading of germs. If you think you might have the flu, then seek medical attention at once. You Can Spank To Discipline The purpose of this article is not to start a wave of spanking of children. It is merely an attempt to set the record straight and to let parents and guardians know that it is legal to spank your children . It is an established fact that many of our children need and deserve a good spanking. Even the Bible tells us that our children may need a spanking from tiine-to-til;ne. They tell me that it is written in the great book that ... to spare the rod is to spoil the child.' One does not-need a Ph. D to understand what that means. There is a statute in Florida law that was sponsor .ed by State Senator Jim Hargrett and State Representative Les Miller. The Spanking Bill was enacted into law back in 1996 The law defines what child abuse is and clearly states that corporal punish ment of a child by a parent or a guardian for disciplinary. reasons does not constitute abuse when it does not result in physical injury or mental injury to the child as defined in Section 415. 503 Today, you often hear par ents say you can t spank your children because if you do, the children will: cal l stafe agencies that will pu t jail. That is not necessarily so. The abuse is not in the spanking but rather in how you do it. In determining whether abuse has occurred, the fol,lowing factors must be takeb:. into Any physical,, mental. or emotional to, a c n ild; the age of the child; any prior history of injury to the child; the loca tion of the injury on the body of the child; the multiplicity of the injury ; and the type of trauma inflicted. There are a number of other items that.constitute child abuse It is abuse if you fail to provide your child with food, clothing and a place to live. It is an abuse to lea v e underaged children unsupervised. It is child abuse to give or allow your child to be given drugs, alcohol, poison or any other dangerous substance Spraining joints, breaking bones ; burning, scalding, cut ting, punching biting chil dren; hitting them with your fist,_ imprisoning them, exposing them to prolonged adverse weather conditions and other such actions are all child abuse and will get you arrested. Put away your electric cords, razor straps, tree limbs, paddles, belt buckltl$ ; \ boxiri'g gloves, brass knuciUes, shoe heels and Lord a mercy, your gun. All of these items could land yqu in jail when disciplining your child. You can spank your chjld, but it must be within reason. Parents and guardians, get yourself a copy of Florida Statute 415.503 and become familiar with it If you find a need to spank your child, start out at an early age and don't wait until he or she becomes young adults before you do. Remember, there is a legal difference between spanking a child and abusing a child. arrested in October for plotting to assassinate the President. While we bask in the great strides of our newest Commander-in-Chief, we must still be wary. For, the forest is full of wolves. And the wolves have teeth!

Entertainment Fiddv Feud Helps Rick Ross Lock Up No. 1 RICK ROSS LOS ANGELES -Rick Ross may have learned the trick to beating Hannah Montana: start a fight with 50 Cent. The Miami rapper ruled the charts with Deeper Than Rap, but Ross didn't topple the Hannah Montana soundtrack alone. The self-proclaimed boss reached No. 1, selling 158,000 copies to Hannah's 104,000, per Nielsen SoundScan, with help from his red-hot feud with 50 Cent. The origin of the feud is f u zzy-o n e day Ross claims Fiddy gave him a f unny look at the BET Awards, the next day he says Fiddy dissed an associate-but Ross certainly fire:d the first musical sal vo last January with "Mafia Music 50 responded with "Officer Ricky (Go Head, Try Me)" a nd Tia T old Me" a nd charged that Ross was a former correctional officer that fabricated his cokedealer past. Most recently, Ross shot a video for the Deep e r track "In Cold Blood" that features a funeral for 50 Cent. In fact claiming he's finished off the Vitamin Water-swiggin' rapper, Ross says he might turn his attention to Fiddy's boss Eminem. (Advice to Ross: Don't go there, just ask Moby, Sarah Palin, Ja Rule . ) Despite all the verbal jousting, a few critics have called the war of words a marketing gimmick. Since the feud started early this year, both artists saw a significant sales spike in their back catalog and got far more pub in the blogs and mags than they would hiwe otherwise. Fiddy knows fu ll well the benefits of a fight, even a friendly one, like his 2007 sales boon matchup with Kanye West. Chris Brown's Anornev Wants Case Dismissed eHIUSBROWN Mark attorney repJ:esent.ing Chris Brown in his felony assault case, told reporters outside of a Los Angeles courthouse on Wednesday morning (April 29) that he wants the case dismissed entirely, due to high-level leaks in the investigation. "Leaks can form the basis for a motion to dismiss the case in regard to outrageous governmental misconduct," Geragos said, according toE! News. The "leaks" the lawyer was referring to include the widely circulated police photo of Rihanna that showed the starlet badly bruised and suffering from a number of scratches, according to RadarOnline. com. The site also reported that Geragos will file a motion regarding the photo, as well as "several other incidents of leaks about the case. When the ph_oto first appeared on :;. : TMZ in February, the Los Angeles Police Department announced it .would conduct an investigation into the leak, but no findings in the matter have been announced as of press time. Geragos appeared in court without Brown and, as expected, requested additional discovery time. The attorney claimed that evidence turned o ver by the LAPD still had not been presented to him, according to OK! magazine. Without much objection from prose cutors, the judge scheduled a new hearing for May 28 Nas And Kelis File For Divorce NAS And KELLIS Nas and Kelis are to split after four years of marriage. Kelis filed for divorce on Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences The couple are currently expecting their first baby together.

No other filmmaker has sought to accurate l y portray basketb all as mu c h as Lee has. He cast Ray Allen in 1998's H e Got Game" and shot so m e of the most famous Michael Jordan comm ercials. He's also making a docum entary for the National Basketball Association about Jordan's last two seasons. Lee's current round ball film is "Kobe Doin' Work," a documentary of one game in the life of Kobe Bryant. Inspired by the 2006 soccer film "Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait," Lee used 30 cameras to capture Bryant's every move in a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs on April 13, 2008 Bryant later recorded a commentary for the film, SPIKE LEE describing his thought process behind every shot, every screen, every pass.

Then again, the sideline bullet passes would have been a giveaway "He is a big, giant, athletic human being who is walking on this planet," Tampa Bay Coach Raheem Morris said of the 6-foot-5-112, 248-pound quarterback and first-round draft pick from Kansas State. "I'm glad he's on our team." The first NFL workday for the Buccaneers' 2009 draft choices and undrafted free agents Friday was very basic, as the coaching staff dived into the process of transitioning college players to the pros. In the middle of it all, Freeman was the dominant presence; in both size and stature. "The quarterback position is a position that's got to lead," Freeman said. "I tried to motivate these guys." He definitely motivated the organization. CoChairman Bryan Glazer, General Manager Mark Dominik, and personnel executive Doug Williams watched from tlie sidelines Mostly they watched Freeman, who last weekend became just the fourth fir st-round q uarterback -17th ov e r a ll -take n i n franchise' s 34 drafts, and the fir s t in 15 years. "There's going to b e some nerves," said Williams, who the Bucs picked out of Grambling with the 17th choice of the 1978 draft. "He was feeling his way through, but this afternoon you could tell he picked up and said, 'I'm the man.' He looked a lot more comfort able." Such is the process -baby steps -of developing a young quarterback. The information will come at him fast and furiously. Before long, defensive linemen and linebackers will be doing the same thing. At least one of Freeman's teammates thinks he'll handle it just fine "He's so big that he's looking over everybody and he's so comfortable in the pocket that he's able to throw with poise and do whatever he wants," said defensive tackle and second-round pick Roy Miller, whose Longhorns went 0-2 against ,Freeman during their Big 12 days. "And he can run, too. He's a great threat'.1 Freeman, 21, said terminology being thr own at him was similar to his three years at K-State. Offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski and quarterbacks coach Greg Olson started their crash courses in the verbiage of the new system with the hope that Freeman will have a base to work from when he joins veterans for offseason workouts this month and mandatory mini-camp in June. "It just feels so good to get back on the field," Freeman said. "I'm not going to say I was nervous but I wanted to come out and do well. I wanted to come out and spit [the plays] out in the huddle and make it happen."

Bucslrade TESmithlo Patriots ALEX SMITH FOXBOROUGH, Mass. --The New England Patriots have obtained tight end Alex Smith from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Patriots gave up an undisclosed pick in next year's NFL draft for the four-year veteran, who was drafted by the Buccaneers in the third round in 2005. Smith had 129 receptions for 1,252 yards and 11 touchdowns in 58 games. He started 12 of the 14 games he played last year, catching 21 passes He caught 41 passe s in 2005, the most by a rookie tight end that season The Patriots have nine draft picks in 2010 plus an undisclosed choice obtained in a trade that also brought them wide receiver Greg Lewis from Philadelphia Vikings Draft Pick Harvin Hospitalized In Atlanta PERCY HARVIN EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn -The Minnesota Vikings first-round draft pick Percy Harvin has been hospital ized due to severe dehydra tion Coach Brad Childress says Harvin became ill Thursday on a fli ght to Atlanta.

Two Saints Arrested on Three Charges, Including Lewd Conduct RIVER EDGE, LA -N ew Orleans S aints wide r eceive r Biren Ealy and tight end Kolomona Kapanui were charged Sunday with obscenity, disturbing the peace and lewd conduct for allegedly being drunk, urinating in public and exposing themselves. The Jefferson Parish Sheriffs Office announced the arrests in a news release. Two women, who weren't identified, were riding in a vehicle when they reportedly saw Ealy and Kapanui urinating in the parking lot of an apartment complex around 12 :42 a m. Sunday, authorities said. One of the women told BIREN EALY And KOWMONA KAPANUI Ealy to stop. Authorities said Ealy turned around while exposing himself and began making lewd comments. Moments later, Kapanui allegedly exposed himself to the driver of the vehicle and made lewd comments, the sheriff's office said. Both players were jailed on $4,250 bonds. Disuruntl.ed Cardinals Sit Out Minicamp With 'lniuries' TEMPE, AZ --Wide receiver Anquan Boldin and d efensive tackle Darnell Dockett showed up for the Arizona Cardinals minicamp but begged off of workouts because of"injurie s Both players are upset with their contract status, and both said they had injured hamstrings, coach Ken Whisenhunt said "They showed up last night and reported an injury that we weren't aware of," Whisenhunt said, "so as part of our procedure we sent them for MRis. Hey, we know what's going on, so I'm really not going to have much to say about that. Two other players with unsettled contract issues -linebacker Karlos Dansby and safety Adrian Wilson -participate d in Friday's first workout, although Dansby was late b ecause of what h e said was a mixup over what time the practic e started. Boldin and Dockett w e r e o n the fi eld f o r the se cond workout Frida y but did not practic e.

So, hopefully something will get done sooner rather than later." Asked if lie had giv e n up hope of being traded, Boldin said, I give up hope. I'm optimistic about everything.

Sports Tiger Woods: I Need To Get More Consistent TIGER WOODS CHARLOTTE, NC -When Tiger Woods shot a 30 on the front nine in a seven-under 65 in the opening round of the Quaii Hollow Championship, he appeared poised to dominate on a tough course with a major-like feel. But Woods was still working out the kinks in his fifth tournament back from knee surgery. Entering Sunday two shots out of the lead Woods wasted several birdie chances and one eagle opportunity, closing with 10 straight pars for a 72. He finished at 9-under 286, good for fourth place, two shots behind winner and buddy Sean O'Hair. "I've been very pleased with some of my progress. I'm also not so pleased with some of it," Woods said. "It's been spotty, streaky. I just need to get a littl e more consistent." In an event he won in 2007, Woods could have tied for the lead with an eagle when he drove the green on the par-4 14th. He ended up nearly fourputting. "It was baked out. I knew that," Woods said of the tricky, fast green, the signature element of this event. "It was downwind and I saw George (McNeill's) putt roll out. I kept telling myself; putt is faster than it looks. It's faster than it looks.' And I didn't heed my own warning. "The next one I blocked again. And I made a won derful 6-footer for my threeputt." Still, Woods believes his short game is ahead of the rest. He hit only 25 of 56 fairways. "That's all I did for months is chip and putt;" Woods said of his limitations: during rehab. "I just need to get more crisp with my driving and my long irons. The longer stuff is not where. I want it." Mavweather Plans To .Return To Ring In Julv FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. LAS VEGAS Undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. formally announced his return to boxing on Saturday, less than a year after he retired and said he was thro"ugh with the sport: "I guess I just missed boxing," Mayweather said. "Somebody's got to keep the sport up and running. Why not me?" That was the question Mayweather asked himself as he took a break from the sport that has consumed his life from the time he learned to walk. He wasn't gone long, but his 11-month retirement was enough to make him realiz.P that he wanted to fight -and fight a lot more. "I'm still the biggest draw in boxing," Mayweather said. "Everybody wants to fight me because they know I'm the cash cow." Mayweather will return to the ring on July 18 against lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez, who will move up two weight classes to get his share of the riches a Mayweather fight can produce. It will be his first fight since he stopped Ricky Hatton in the lOth round in December 2007. "I left on top, and I came back. on top," Mayweather said. "I'm here to fight and reclaim what's mine." Indeed, when Mayweather announced his retirement last June he ,was generally regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, an honor now mainly given to Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather's decision to retire instead of fighting a rematch again s t Oscar De La Hoya l ed to Pacquiao getting the s hot that he capitalized on. Mayweather announced his comeback plans in a theater at the MGM Grand hotel, just hours before Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton met in a 140-pound (63.5-kilogram) fight in the hotel's arena. Mayweather, should he beat Marquez, could get the winner of Saturday',.; fight in the autumn, but h e wat;n't planning to stick ar.::md and watch it .. I m taking my daughter bowling tonight, he said. Seahawks, Hill Agree To long-Term Deal LEROY HILL SEATTLE-The Seattle Seahawks and starting outside linebacker Leroy Hill have reached agreement on six-year contract worth a guaranteed $15 5 million. The deal could potentially be worth $38 million. Hill became a free agent last weekend after the team dropped its franchise tag on him and Hill refused to sign an $8.3 million tender offer. The Seahawks said in a news release Thursday evening only that the team and Hill had "agreed to terms to a multiyear deal." The dollar figures were con firmed by a person close to the situation who requested anonymity because the terms were not made public. Hill and the Seahawks were held up for days over contract language provisions related to possible league disciplin_e Hill may face from an offseason arrest .in. .January Georgia for misdemeanor marijuana possession. Dolphins: White Will Onlv Plav QB PAT WHITE Coach Tony Sparano said Friday that rook i e White will play no other pos ition except quarterback as the of{season program contin u es : over the next two months. Sparano also said he has spent time consi d er ing NFL rules about use of quarterbacks o n game d ays. Teams a r e allowed to have 45 players active for each regular-season game, with another eight on the inactive list. One of tho s e eight usuall y is a designat ed third quarterback, who is permitted to enter the game.
