In other words, Obama was W a "high-yalluh" Black man who spoke "Proper." Reid regarded his words as simply a backwoods observation, ::I: an observation hf! nevertheless, recanted, later. But Reid's verbal impropriety did indeed, conjure up m the question "What is meant by "SPEAKING PROPER?" K Ask any Black grandmother, aunt or retired English z teacher. Either of them would readily tell you, "speak-wt-ing proper" (or speaking proper-ly). That would mean _. no "dees," "dems," or "dose." ... no "I is" when one ..I meant "I am." In other words, "speaking proper" was a sign that the individual was truly educated. Therefore, in Senator Reid's opinion, our newly invested President had fully overcome what, to many of his counterparts i= couldn't.

More Class-Time I A pproaching middfe of.the school year America's children reminds us of President Barack Obama's call to increase the length of time America's children spend in school. No doubt, in a few weeks, many parents will be surprised by the mid-term grades some of their children bring home. Indeed, some parents may even come to believe that perhaps, our Black children can benefit from spending a few extra hours per week in the classroom. Based on America's rank in reading, science and mathematics scores, American schools rank 6 behind Finland, South Korea, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Gennany and the Czech Republic. In consequence, President Obama believes more hours spent in the classroom will boost student perfonnance and make our children more competitive with our global counterparts. Following the same line of thinking, perhaps Black children shQuld spend more hours in the classroom to Did Bill Gates Mean Charter Schools, Tooil I heard th a t th e Bill Gat e s F o undati o n gaw a $ 100 milli o n d o llar educ ati onal g rant t o th e Hills b o r o u g h C ountY S choo l s y s t e m I a m n o t what th e mon e y i s f o r but I h e ard so m e thing about impr o ving tea c h e r s and th e way e ducati o n i s d elive red t o stud e nts I don t know how the sch ool district int e nds to usc th e money; I do know that c hart e r school s hav e no s a y s o in how the mone y will b e used I told that charter school s would T he next time you h a ve the opportunity to travel to the North Florida area near Tallahassee (hope fully after it's warmed up), plan on taking a 35 mile sid e trip off Interstate-to to the Apalachicola National Forest to visit the British Fort, also known as Negro Fort, African Fort and Fort Apalachicola in Franklin County Negro Fort is one of the re minders of the close relation ship that existed between runaway slaves and the Semi nole Indians during the late 1700s and early 18oos. When Florida was under Spanish control during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, slaves escaped from the Car olinas, Georgia and as far away as Tennessee and Mis sissippi to live with Seminole Indians, who were them selves runaways. Ex-slaves farmed land and cultivated crops in com munities close to Indian In turn, the Seminoles allowed them to live there or within the tribal community, even intermarrying, for one third of the ex slaves' crops.

Organizers said they came up with the idea a year ago, and after that it was simply a matter of getting all the informa tion from the community. "This is a cleaver way to unite us outside of the normal club setting,"_ said one of the organ izers who wants to remain anonymous. "We want people to come out with a different spirit and pay tribute to those from the area who aren't with us anymore. We want this event to reach out to Tampa, St. Petersburg, and anywhere else where there have been fallen soldiers." The final hour of the event will consist of R.I.P. songs . "This will be an entirely inno vative event, and the first of its kind, said one of the organiz ers. "People who died in the hood deserve this tribute, and we can't forget them simply be cause they aren't around anymore. "We h_ave to thank the people for providing us the names, so if any were left out, consider this tribute for them as well." The event will start at 9 p.m. arid everyone is asked to wear their R.I.P shirts. All hoods are asked to close all traps for this event, and come to honor the brothers and sisters who paid the ulti-pri_ce . .,. ;,' For nioremf0nb.ation or VIP, please call (813 ) 229-5959.
