Desire To Help Drew 'We Deliver' Award Winner To Classroom Bill Hoffman, left, is shown presenting a $10,000 check to Ross Anderson, the 2009 "We Deliver" Award Winner. BYIIUS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Mter graduating from Hillsborough High School in 1984, Ross Ander,son concentrated on entering the business arena. He never thought back then that his path would lead him to the classroom. Friday;, the unexpected happened,_,. to Anderson when Hillsborough County School Superintendent MaryEllen Elia appeared at Van Buren Middle School. She, along with an entourage of well-wishers, converged on the campus to present Anderson with the 2009 "We Deliver' Award and the $10,000 check that goes with the honor. Anderson may have been surprised, but the young men he mentors to weren't. They were all dressed in black pants, white shirts, and ties for the occasion. As Anderson went to the stage to accept the award, the youngsters showered him with silly string. "It still hasn't hit yet," he said when about lmt -4Jeing r ,roosenamong 700; candidates honor. I do is for the kids and it is great especially when the principal supports you." Anderson is unique in that he has launched his teaching career less than five years ago after working with the youngster he ment-ored in the Big Brothers Program. "I wasn't happy with the classes they had him in, and I knew that he was very smart. I started visiting his school and he was placed in advanced classes. He is now a student at Florida Atlantic University." He said while working with him, he came to realize. that if the. boys weren't playing sports, they fell through the cracks. and no one seemed to care. Anderson 91:itained ...... his B. A .. the Columbia :,!_ Southern University;: in'_ while an employee Verizon an,q 'then became 'ii;fr,i entrepreneur. His suggested that he shoufd at least substitute in the school system if he wasn't going to teach. Mter interviewing with former Sligh Principal, Juanita Underwood, nearly five years ago, Anderson was convinced to at least try teaching. After being hired at Sligh, Anderson founded the Men of Vision Program for the students. During the first year, he spent his own money to beautify the school and get the boys involved : in corimi'unity serviCe: After' Mrs. Underwood was transferred to another school,"Anderson fount:! he . didn't have the support base in her reptacemEmt and was let go: He was hired by Dr. JoAnn Reddin, princ:ipal at Van Buren Middle School. Serving as a Reading Resource teacher, he expects the students to read at least three books a month. He requires they maintain at ]east a 2.0 grade point average. The of the youngsters participating in "Men of Vision'' are also required to take an active role in the organization. This bond allows Anderson to serve as a liaison between the school and the parents, if needed. In addition to ensuring that the boys reach their full potential in the classroom, Anderson seeks to help them become well roundedby things they might not otherwise experience.. The 60 members of "Men of Vision" have attended sporting events, visited college campuses, and take part in community service activities. .r:.: Anderson said success rate is not 100%, and that he has lost 7 students to the adult education program. But, he stays in contact with them, and continues to offer them encouragement. When asked what he plans to do with the $10,000 award, Anderson said, "I'm trying to get a 15 passenger van so that more of the boys can go on trips. My van only holds 7 passengers." Amember of Jackson Heights Church of Christ; Anderson said, "Transpor tation is. our biggest iS&Ue., I hope someone in the community can help us with this." Ms. Charla Kerwin, of Springhead Elementary Sehool; Ms. Angela Keller, of Greco Middle School; and Wayne Stinnard, of Cypress Creek Elementary School were chosen as "We Deliver" finalists. They were surprised and presented checks for $1,000 by Deputy Superintendent Ken Otero, Deputy Superintendent Dan Valdez, and Assistant Superintendent Lewis Brinson.

She learned about the Har ram Temple 23, Prince Hall Shriners', Harram's Kids and attended a meeting. "I believe it to be a wonder ful program and a tremen dous opportunity for young men in our community. In light of the many recent headlines involving young men and destructive behav iors, the program would be an excellent means to reach out to some of our young men and teach them the traits of what it truly means to beaman." However, Ms. Passmore JOHNNIE HiSMITH, JR. Youth Director of Har ram'sKids was distressed by the fact that there were only two other families at the meeting.

I Ross Anderson: Young Man 01 Vision I K udos to resource teacher and mentor, Ross Ander s on, who l eft the corporate world to become one of a d win dling and much needed species . a Black male teacher. Andjustwho is Ross Anderson, you may ask? We proudly answer; Ross Anderson is a Bla ck man who sees be e yond what many of us think we see i n young Black male stu a: dents who perform poorly and exhibit bad behavior, in too LL many of our public school classr ooms. Mr. Anderson is obvi C ously a man of vision because he sees young Black men as "diamonds in the rough." And so do we. > Last week, Anderson, a Van Buren Mid dle School resource < teacher, was named the 2009 'We Deliver' Award winner, at a surprise press conference and party, whic h he unwittingly w helped set-up. :::: Initially found the Sligh Middle School's Men ofVision pro tgram, Anderson has helped young boys improve their grades, as well as their self-esteem. Having exhibited such great W teaching and relationship building skills, Anderson with ii'J barely three years teaching experience was nominated for c a Teacher of the Year award and was promoted to a.position W of resource teacher. :::1: Obviously, this young man has the ability to reach young men and to convince them to turn their lives around, thereby Ql helping them to make better grades. We wonder if his skills :::: could be taught to others. I t seems that nearly the entire United States is on a mission. The new coin phrase is "going green." I wonder where I've heard that statement before? Oh, yes, now I remember. It was AI Gore who urged the world to protect the earth. Who? AI Gore was the 45th Vice President of the United States, serving under Presi dent Bill Clinto n from 1993 until 2001. But, he is also a former journalist, business man, published author, movie star, and NobeJ Peace Prize laureate. Gore, who is the recipient of several awards, starred in the 2006 documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." It won an Academy Award the fol lowing year. He also wrote the book, "An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emer-Going Greenil gency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It." The book also won a Grammy Award for Best Spo ken Word Album in 2009. For several years, Gore has been warning the public about global warming . He has talked about how the arc tic ice cap is melting more each year and that animals are losing their natural habi tat. He continues to monitor and speak out about climate changes, having founded the Alliance for Climate Protec tion. And, now it seems that his message is catching on. Not only are people becoming more responsible in the man ner in which they view the earth, but corporations and the government have adopted the "going green" slogan and practices. AI Gore deserves to be praised for his work. He has talked about protecting the earth and the damages of global warming until some one decided to listen. However, I can't help but wonder when someone is going to connect global warming, climate changes and all of the other problems the earth is incurring to space travel? It seems the problems of global warming may have existed during the fifties. But, when man started sending space ships to the rnoon, the space travel gave global warming a violent shove. Furthermore, it seems that by the time man establishes living conditions on the moon, it would already be polluted with space debris. Perhaps, Gore should place special emphasis on this issue. It's going to take more than going green to fix the mess man has made, but it is a start. a. Nevertheless, there is no doubt more Black male students Z would fare much better in school and in life, if every ljj in Hillsborough County was blessed with a Ross Anderson.,;:;.J Are we dreaming? Maybe so. But it is a vision we would cheer -S to see come true. Therefore, we encourage young Black r-..;.:_-------------------------------------, a::1 who believe they want t o teach, to reach out and do so. ;-;1 ..!J Meanwhile, we thank Ross Anderson and applaud our school system for hiring him What About The Indian Monevil z w en

Sports Marve Nears Decision Between Purdue And Vols QB Robert Marve was one of the prized signings in Miami's 2007 recruiting class. INDIANAPOLIS Former Miami quarterback Robert Marve will choose between a scholarship at Purdue and walking on at Tennessee early next week, his high school coach said Saturday .. Marve said he'd leave Miami at the end of last season after losing the starting job to Jacory Harris. Robert Weiner, Marve's coach at Plant High School in Tampa, said Marve has taken his time because he is leery of making a mistake. "He really did his home work," Weiner said. "With a transfer, you can't be wrong. You have to make the right choice." Marve would have two years of eligibility remain ing, starting with the 2010 season. Marve visited South Florida, Arizona State, Nebraska and Purdue. He called off visits to Texas Tech and UCLA because those schools liked their quarterback situations com ing out of the spring. Marve's father, Eugene, played for Tennessee defen sive coordinator Monte Kiffin while in the NFL, but that is one of the schools Miami wouldn't release Marve to as a con ditior. of the transfer. Weiner said walking on would allow Marve to work around the restriction, though lie would have to pay for school in 2009 Weiner said Marve has not had contact with coach es at Tennessee.

Obama said he expects a positive response from his diplomatic outreach to Iran on stopping its nuclear program by the end of the year. The president said the United States wanted to bring Iran into the world community, but declared "we're not going to have talks f6rever." At the same time, Obama said biuntly that it was impor tant that Netanyahu, a hard liner on peace negotiations with the Palestinians, get Qack to the negotiating table. While his language was gen tle, Obama's words were no table nonetheless for being made in public. "We have seen progress stalled on this front, and I sug gested to the prime minister that he has a historic opportu nity to get a serious movement on this issue during his tenure," Obama said.

'Old South' Frat Targeted Over Confederate Event Members of the Kappa Alpha Order, in Confederate military uniforms, escort their dates from the James Dormitory at Centenary College during the Old South event in Shreveport, La. BIRMINGHAM, Ala.---A white fraternity that traces its roots to the Civil War and Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee is again facing complaints over its antebellum-themed events. This time, University of Alabama alumnae are upset after Kappa Alpha Order members wearing Confederate uniforms and carrying battle flags paraded past a historically black sorority as the women celebrated the group's 35th an niversary. The fraternity has been forced to halt its "Old South" festivities on some campuses because of claims of racial in sensitivity, and Alabama members have apologized for pausing in front of Alpha Kappa Alpha's sorority house during this year's parade. Alpha Kappa Alpha members said there was no con frontation or taunting, but they were shocked to see fra ternity members in rebel uni forms and white women from another sorority in hoop skirts. While 71 alumnae sent a pe tition to Alabama President Robert Witt complaining about the use of Confederate flags and uniforms on campus, administrators haven't taken any formal action against the fraternity. Some sorority members said the only solution is to stop the Old South event. The school now has more than 25,000 students, and university statistics show that in 2007, 11 percent were black.

Entertainment Michael Jackson's Rehearsals Still On-And Geninu Magical MICHAEL JACKSON LOS ANGELES -Despite the current legal threat to Michael Jackson's ballyhooed comeback, the King of Pop is pressing on with his $20 million production. With Billboard estimating that Jackson's 50 shows this summer at 02 Arena could end up taking in more than .$100 million-plus another $15 million in merchandise salesJackon is in the process of adding even more bells and whistles to what promises ;to be one heck of a spectacle, whichever way the ball oounces. E! News has:confirmed that magician Ed Alonzo, who most recently heiped. trick Britney Spears' Circus tour, has come aboard to fashion Some magicaL moments for Jackson's shows. '!I met with Michael Jackson a couple of days ago and now officially creating magic and illusions for his concert," Alonzo said Fri,day. "I will not be performing in the show as I do with Britney. I'm just creating the magic that Mj.chael has ed in his 11 Instead, Jackson, whose most recent If{ I ( 12-year disappearing act from touring, will take the magic into his own hands. Jackson "has a great knowledge of magic and has performed illusions in his shows before," Alonzo, who's heading to London with the Circus in June, said. "Michael has two routines in mind so far using magic elements that I am creating," he added. "I have to show him a demo of"the effects next week. Then the props are to be built and he will start rehearsals. I will teach him the effects and help in staging them." Here's hoping the idea of a 50-date return to live performing isn't the biggest illusion of them all. Concert promoter AllGood Entertainment is trying to put the kibosh on Jackson's gigs, claiming the singer is in breach. of contract because he had promised to participate-in a Jackson 5 reunion show and is not allowed to per form anywhere else until said reunion takes place. Nonsense, responded AEG Live, which called the' allegations "completely meritless." And for any skeptics who doubt that Jackson lias the physical stamina to make it through a 50-night engagement, turns out the 50-year-old passed his req uisite physical "with flying colors," AEG CEO Randy Phillips told Billboard. Those hefty production costs have been fully insured, Phillips said.' With tickets selling for around $115 and audiences numbering 15,000 on average, Jackson's take figures to be upward of $50 million, analysts estimate.
