A New Day in Dallas County

PAge 3

by: lolA seArCy


New Day in Dallas County and the promise to make county government and the criminal justice system more efficient and transparent were the promises being made at “swearing in” ceremonies at the Sixth Floor Museum and across Dallas on New Year’s Day. Newly elected and incumbent Democrats took the oath of office since sweeping Dallas County elections this past November. “26 years ago I was sworn in as a Jr. Commissioner and now I am the Elder.” “Today I have a predominantly Democratic Court, and the first Hispanic to serve on the Commissioner’s Court. “Today is a new day and a new time”, said Dallas County’s most tenured Commissioner, John Wiley Price. Among those taking the oath of office was newly elected County Judge, Clay Jenkins. Judge Jenkins, a Highland Park civil attorney defeated Republican Judge Wade Emmert in November’s county elections. After receiving the oath of office from Commissioner Price, Judge Jenkins had this to say to those in attendance. “We sit at the crossroads of commerce for goods traveling between the West Coast and the Eastern seaboard and north from Mexico.” “Yet the area of Southern Dallas County has one of the

Dr. Garcia wife of Dallas Attorney and former State Representative Domingo Garcia defeated Republican Kenneth Mayfield to seal a Democratic majority on the Commissioner’s Court. “A new day means new leadership and new ideas, and we’re ready to confront our challenges, she said. Commissioner Garcia said that she too, would push for more accountability and transparency in County Government. “Obviously being the first Latina brings big

New Goals For 2011 “My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; henry nelson bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”


his being the first week in the year of 2011. I do not know about you, but it seems that time just keeps moving faster and faster. Where did the time go? I was also reminded of the production of the musical Fiddler on the Roof. It specifically reminded me of one of the songs from the

play Sunrise, Sunset. Time continues to march on, and we are challenged to answer the questions that it brings, and those challenges will be laden with both "happiness" and "tears." So how will you answer those questions and challenges? You could be like a lot of people and make New Year’s Resolutions though after listening to these "Word on the Street" interviews you might wonder if they really do any good. I hope that if you made any resolutions you would do a better job than these folks, but the reality is you are probably not much different. We just got into 2011 and I am guessing you are already struggling. Even so, I would like to offer you a few goals that I think each of us should make for 2011. They are found in Proverbs 3:1-5 I will get in the Word and stay in the Word. The Bible is annually the best-selling book. I wish that being the most sold book translated into being the most read book! Unfortunately, I know that is not true. Let’s see what Proverbs tells us about getting into and staying in the Word... Verse #1 "My son, do not forget my

teaching, but let your heart keep my commands." We all need to make a renewed effort to be good students of God’s Word. We need to be reading it daily. We need to be studying it with others. Which means if you are not coming to Sunday school you should start next week? If you cannot be there at 9:30 AM then go at 11:00 AM. You cannot be who Jesus wants you to be if you do not know what Jesus wants you to be. So how do you know? Where do you find the instructions for living a life that pleases the Lord? In the bible! But it’s not enough just to read the Word; you need to be studying the Word. The author of Proverbs says that "iron sharpens iron" in Proverbs 27:17, which means that you need one another if you truly want to sharpen your spiritual lives. I do not mean to diminish the value of personal Bible Study, but I believe it is both arrogant and foolish to believe that you can study the Bible alone without any interaction with others and get all that the Lord wants to reveal to you. You being in Bible Study and sharing what God has shown you might be exactly what someone

Look at Verse # 2. ”For they will bring you many days, a full life, and well-being.” So what does that mean? Can I promise you that if you start coming to Sunday school, Wednesday Bible Study, and get involved in a Home Bible Study you will live longer. Well, no I cannot, but I can promise you this: Getting into the Word with others will add to your life. There are things about life that you will never learn until you are willing to make a commitment to faithfully studying God’s Word. Why not make that resolution today. I will get serious about commitment to God and others. If there was one thing that I think is most missing in our culture today it would be commitment. People are not committed to God, like they should be. Here is a simple illustration that I have seen develop over the years:

ith the New Year upon us, many see it as making changes in their life, making broken promises for New Year’s resolutions, and trying new things. But for some, like Clarence Miller, see a “Vision.” In Webster’s Dictionary, vision means “the act of seeing external objects; actual sight.” Another definition is “to see in a vision or dream”, that is how Clarence Miller see’s his vision. Clarence Miller’s vision is to build an educational foundation, “The Mission of the Thelma Cupitt Brown (TCB) School,” to educate children of all races, ethnics, and creeds to become a better student and to provide a learning environment and learning tools for those who desire to learn by fostering the creation of a culture governed by Christian principles using interactive small groups, selected documentation, and artistic expression in a very organized, disciplined, and controlled setting.” Clarence Miller says, “There is a noticeable gap in our society between the opportunity to learn and the actual learning that is taking place. With many of us, the gap began in our childhood and has continued throughout any education process with which we have been involved. It is not clear how the gap was caused or the rate at which it is growing. However, it is clear that, if a different approach to learning is not taken “the education process” that is in place will continue to fail to meet the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual objectives to which most of us aspire.” As I spoke with Mr. Miller, I learned that his vision was for every individual who experiences the activities of this culture validated through their actions will be used to help meet the intellectual, emotional, and/or the spiritual objectives to which most of us aspire. Through his vision, Miller wants to assist churches in getting the resources that will help their energy cost through his daily employment at Ideal Impact. I asked Mr. Miller how long has he had this




vision and he stated, “As far back as I $100M.

As time went on, I became electronics and OEM system building. more and more willing to do what I felt I was called to do for little or no monetary compensation. In fact, in recent years I have become more conscious of my willingness to use my own financial resources to do so. About three months ago, only one day after speaking with one of our clients (Rev. Dr. Tim Wilbert, Bible Way Community Baptist Church) about his Vision for learning, I was blessed with my current Vision. Mr. Clarence Miller is a graduate of Morgan State wes mCDAniel AnD ClArenCe miller College in Baltimore, Maryland Clarence Miller resides in and has a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics. Clarence Miller also holds Richardson, Texas with his wife Barbara a Masters Degree from University of of 40 years.

Out of the Eyes of a Layman is it time for the Church to stand up and be Counted?

Christians in America than in any other Country on the globe. If we wanted to do so we could make a change in many ungodly laws if we would just stand up and be counted as God’s servants Part II against out right ungodlyness laws and rules in this country. Take number one for ast week we wrote an instance: Same sex marriages article pertaining to the this is absolutely against God’s Christians and the churches law and creation. God created of God standing against the Adam and eve not Adam and moral wrongeness which is Steve. God created man and occurring in our country, and in woman. What makes this so the world. bad is that it cancels out the God is Spirit, and he does first commandment that God not have arms, feet, hands, and gene turner gave to Adam and Eve physical being as we have, but (replenish the Earth). Two God’s Spirit lives within us. That’s why when we sin, or when we men or two women cannot replenish wrong someone else our spiritual anything but other homosexuals like them, conscious claws at our throat, because we because other people who are weak in that are sealed with the Holy Spirit which leads area will pattern after that lifestyle which are before them. and guides us in all truth. Number two: Abortion is legalized Now, I grant you that we as Christians do not always adhere to the guiding of the murder of a child. How can any law Holy Spirit, because we will on most governing body anywhere uphold a law of occasions let things get out of hand this kind of inhumane distraction? Her completely before we are moved to do or body does not belong to her. Life begins at act upon it. That should not happen, concievement not the next few months, or because not only are we Christians, but we not even the next day, because God are also citizens with a free voice in a free himself has already created that particular society. We should be eager to up hold the life before He formed it in the seed of man. Saying all this Bro. Turner, what can laws and rules of the almighty God. The Bible makes it very plain, that we Christians do? Well, you saw gays should obey God rather than man. Now, I marching and filling the streets with signs. know that God said obey all secular laws, You saw just the other day that streets because He himself is the author of all laws were filled with people protesting Abortion and regulations throughout the world in Laws. They want to kill babies legally in order to save us from ourselves, but laws order to live without shame or sometimes got over execrated by responsibilities of having that child. Some lawmakers to exploit themselves, and of the same people who are protesting that law brought shame to their mother, but that’s where the trouble starts. Look at what’s happening around us. that mother lived with the shame rather Number one – public enemy number one: than aborting her child because it was the Same sex marriages. Number two: legal right thing to do. We could create the largest lobbying abortion (Women have the right to do with committee in every state at the same time her body as she pleases). Neither one of these are moral and lobby our statement and purpose and standards of God. This country is supposed presence in every law governing office in to be founded and based upon the the land. Simply because there are more principals of God. There are more Christians. There are more people that believe in God than there are none believers, plus people who are just good by nature that will be with us. These marches and lobbing committees would go over in a big way if national leaders would lead out front. People like Jessie Jackson, T.D. Jakes, Billy Graham, Jerry Farwell, William J. Shaw (NBC Inc.), Charles Stanley, Chuck Swindall, etc. If this would happen there would be no force that could stand up to it. God Himself would see to it, because this would give God feet, hands. and legs in this human society. Let us not forget to read our Bibles, and may God bless you real good, and may He ever keep you in His loving care.

Advice Column: Ask Karen Hollie A Day of Remembrance There are only a few more days to go! If you are reading this after December 25th, Christmas has past. Why is December 25th so special? What really is this day we call Christmas? The early church didn't give much thought to the birth of Jesus. Of the four Gospels only gerAlDine Matthew and Luke even DAViDson-hooKer mention His birth, and these accounts are relatively brief. Certainly, the emphasis of the Gospels was on Jesus' ministry, death, and resurrection. And after Jesus ascended to Heaven, the focus of the church was on living for Him, sending out His message, and waiting for His return. No one is really sure when Jesus was born. The first recorded celebration didn't occur until 200 years after His birth, and it wasn't until the year 330 that the birth of Christ was assigned to December 25th. Some say Jesus was actually born in September or October and others are sure He was born in March or April (in fact, a case has been made for His birth in each of the twelve months!). But it's generally agreed that, due to the relatively colder weather, December was an unlikely time for the birth of our Savior. So what really is Christmas? Christmas is a day to remember the most profound event in the history of the world. On that first Christmas (whenever it was), God came to earth to live among us! He was born into the most humble circumstances, grew and taught us His truths, died on a cross for our sin, and was raised to be with The Father; all so we might live with Him for eternity. December 25th is a day to celebrate with quiet reflection, as Mary "treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart" (Luke 2:19). It is also a day to celebrate with great rejoicing, as the shepherds "returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen" (Luke 2:20). The world has tried to remove Christ and insert many activities into this season which do not glorify God. But this need not hinder our worship. We have the ability to turn away the evil and embrace that which is honoring and good. We can (and should) glorify God and celebrate the gift of our Savior every day throughout the year. But let's take the opportunity to make this season and this day special. Let's celebrate with a focused and thankful heart, and I pray you made December 25th a blessed day of remembrance.

erhaps you have some unresolved issues that came with you into the year 2011. I’m talking about things in your life that you feel you can’t get the victory over. Well, let’s try the recipe and formula that Moses gave the children of Israel in Exodus chapter 14. As the children of Israel stood PAstor ClArenCe before the beging of red sea, the henDerson Egyptian army was behind them, to destroy them; Moses gave them three steps to victory. Exodus 14:13; 1. Fear not, 2. Stand still, 3. And see the salvation of the Lord. The children of Israel obeyed, and you know the rest of the story. Yes! God came through for them. You to can experience the benefit of three steps to victory. Fear not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. I was told that there are 365 “Fear Nots” in the word of God. If true, there is a Fear Nots for each day of the year. Try it and God will deliver you too!

A Man with a Purpose and Vision... continues from page 3 Impact, Wes McDaniel Clarence Miller can focus also on churches and help save them money on the energy that the church will use. Wes McDaniel says that a church is intended to be a house of worship and place of comfort, but in many aspects, it must be run as a business. In order to provide services for parishioners, funds for ministry and pay operating expenses, the budget must be properly managed. Today, nearly every 
organization is facing the challenge of meeting operational, personnel and financial demands. For many churches, a new revenue source exists right inside the building. By implementing a proactive energy efficiency plan, combined with energy education training, churches can yield surplus funds, obtain needed facility improvements and have a positive environmental impact. Because Clarence Miller is a man with a heart for God and churches, he can honestly go to a church, give them an evaluation on their energy, and look them straight in the eye and tell them if Ideal Impact can help them or not. Many businesses will not do that, they just take your money weather they can help you or not. Clarence Miller wants to help and educate the church on what services they need to save energy. Because Clarence Miller is a man with

a heart for God and the church, he can honestly go to a church, give them an evaluation on their energy, and look them straight in the eye and tell them whether or not Ideal Impact can help them. Clarence Miller wants to educate the church on what services they need to save energy. I asked Clarence Miller where did he see himself in 10 years with his vision and with Ideal Impact, he said, “In ten years, I can see myself serving in the role of both organizations responsible for thankfully communicating the status of the organizations, promoting the Vision of both organizations, and soliciting the involvement of those who believe that they can be of value in accomplishing the objectives of those organizations.” With a vision like that and the gift that God set for Mr. Clarence Miller’s willingness to help others, he is off to a good start. To learn more about Clarence Miller’s Vision and on how to save your Church energy and money contact Clarence Miller at 817-251-8498 or

BarBerShOP talk with leON SimON


he NFL season come to a halt. The Cowboys didn’t make the playoffs, Duh!!!!!. Progress maybe, play- offs no. As of this date the leon simon Cowboys don’t have a head coach. Speculation is that by weeks end Jason Garrett will be named head coach. There is one glitch, the Rooney rule has to be obeyed. One minority coach has to be interviewed before anyone can be hired. Every since Jason was named interim coach, some people thought he shouldn’t be considered, because he was part of that Wade Phillips crew that couldn’t get it together. First I would like to apologize for calling him “Brain Dead Red”. If he proved any thing he proved he’s not brain dead. First he proved that this team as inept as they are, did have enough life to finish the season stronger than they started it. The league proved they weren’t as talented as the rest of us first thought. Jason got them in an NFL frame of mind where they had been in an ESPN frame of mind. No discipline, no fight, just get paid on Tuesday and embarrass themselves on Sunday. When Jason was an assistant to Wade he couldn’t do anything without Wade’s approval. Wade didn’t want them to have contact and it showed on Sunday. He had to follow instructions, just as Tom

Janurary 7, 2010

Landry and Vince Lombardi did when they were assistants under Jim Lee Howell. No one in New York knew they would be the legendary coaches they were until they got on their own. Jim Lee Howell got all the credit for the Giants success; just as Bill Parcells did here. No one knew that Sean Peyton could win a Super Bowl when he was an assistant here or with the Giants. As a matter of fact, while with the Giants, he lost his play calling ability to the head coach. That’s not a big endorsement for a head coach. When Todd Haley was the Wide Receiver’s Coach he didn’t display an ability to be a head coach in his dealing with T.O. and the receiving corp. But his Kansas City Chiefs are in the play-offs never the less. Sometimes Back up’s and Assistants are never given a chance. Johnny Unitas was cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers until George Shaw broke his ankle with the Colts and as they say… the rest is history. Franco Harris was not the man at Penn State. The best thing Jason Garrett has going for him, he’s been tutored by some of the same people that Jerry gets advice from; Jimmie Johnson among others. Jason has a wealth of ex teammates and Assistant coaches that’ll go to bat for him. The coaches that most people want: John Gruden, Bill Cowher. Gruden went to a team built by Tony Dungy. Bill Cowher was in Pittsburgh an awful long time before he won. Plus Cowher won’t work here he’s like Parcells; won’t let his coaches talk, and he’s not gonna say too much himself.

Al Is Back! by: lolA seArCy


he man who is responsible for bringing the Annual State Fair Classic to Dallas is back! And it ain’t football. This time he has a basketball game to rival all basketball games! The basketball game pits longtime football rivals - Prairie View A & M Panthers against their arch football rivals, the Grambling State Tigers. It’s called 4 the Love of Basketball! State Fair Classic promoter Al Wash has added a new twist to the game. Not only will the men of Prairie View and Grambling be balling, but so will the Lady Panthers and the Lady Tigers! Yep, this time the ladies will be vying for bragging rights! The game will take place on Saturday, January 15th at the Ellis Davis Field House located at 9191 South Polk here in Dallas. And of course, I had to ask Al why basketball and why Prairie View and Grambling? Al says he knows people may be thinking why is it always about Prairie View and Grambling? His answer is simple. There are a lot of student athletes from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area

Notes From Union Hope


appy New Year to all of our readers we trust that you have taken time to thank God for allowing you to see the beginning of another year. Our church school lesson “I am Your elD lloyD t. Redeemer” Isaiah morgAn 4 4 : 2 1 - 2 6 reminded us that whatever we have achieved in life even life itself comes from God, it is he that made us and not we ourselves. God reminded Judah and Israel that that he made them and would not forget them. How wonderful it is to serve a God that is so high and holy and yet desire to maintain a relationship with us. When we are at our worst he still loves us. We do not deserve it but because he has placed his love upon us because of his son Jesus, he is quick to forgive and restore. The lesson taught us that only God really know our future; he declared that he expose false prophets as liars and make fools of fortune-tellers and he cause the would be wise to give bad

Page 12

advice, proving them to be fools. We must be careful who we lend our ears to and who we place our trust in. Our morning message was delivered by Pastor L.T.Morgan from the subject “The land of no more” Rev 21:1-7. The church is not just something we do; it is about a journey that has a destination, a place called heaven. We must emphases the word “place” because there are those that would have us believe that heaven is only a state of mind but I will take Jesus word for it when he said “I go to prepare a “Place” for you”. I also believe that he will come again to take his bride (the church) to that place he has prepared for the believer. God bless!

attending Prairie and Grambling. And because whenever we talk about football and basketball in this area, we very rarely talk about predominantly Black colleges. We always talk about SMU, TCU and UNT. This is Al’s way of giving athletes from this area, the exposure and recognition they would otherwise never get. I always have to ask Al who he thinks will win. And of course, he never tells me. “I’m sure there will be several superstars to emerge from this game.” All roads lead to Ellis Davis field house Saturday, January 15th! What a way to begin your MLK weekend! The ladies tip off at 5:30 pm and the men follow at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $10.00 for students and $15.00 for adults. If you wait until game day to get your tickets it will cost you $20.00. You can purchase tickets at and at all TICKETMASTER and Williams Chicken locations. Or you can charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. For more information on Saturday’s game you can visit www.ALWE.COM. Al says, “It’s Black College basketball at its best! Don’t miss it!”

rollin with a Brotha


elcome to the weeke n d baaaaby! Ohhhh yeah, 2011 is here! Did you know that a new Readers Digest study shows writing down your New Years Resolution gives you an 83 percent KeVAn browning better chance of holding on to it for the 1st 6 months of the year...Did you know that various experts say January is the best month to start a new habit? In other words to start or stop something, eating drinking, relationship or any other habit, this is OUR month, lol! As we enter 2011, I reflect back on one of my toughest CrAig wAtKins years, full of hope for the future! 2010 saw my Mom diagnosed with Dementia, my oldest child start trippin badly, drama on my job from various haters and the list goes on! Guess what, I survived and so did you and the rest of our country. Former Prez and local resident George W. Bush left our country in the biggest mess since the Great Depression, not to be confused with the depression most of us went thru,lol! I look to Rev. Martin Luther Kings Birthday in a couple of weeks as a beacon for all of us! We have come a long way and HE did not bring us this far to leave us! As long as I'm being reflective...Congrat's to Dallas District Attorney Craig Watkins, who continues to put away the bad and attempt to free the wrongly incarcerated. A local brotha, Clarence Dupree Jr. was declared innocent Tuesday after 30 years in prison. Mr. Dupree refused to

admit to a 1979 rape and robbery, in the process serving more time for a crime he didn't commit than any other Texas inmate exonerated by DNA evidence. "Whatever your truth is, you have to stick with it," Dupree, 51, said Tuesday! Can U sue someone for stealing a groupie??? Former NBA star Antoine Walker is being sued for $5,000,000 by a man claiming the athlete stole his fiancée, and then laughed in his face. In the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Chicago, Kevin Jenkins says he actually caught his fianceé having “an intimate moment” with Walker back in October and “Mr. Walker reportedly taunted and laughed at Jenkins with the intent of causing him emotional distress.” Man up, dude! Get a bat or sumpin!!!! Sheriff’s investigators are trying to get Lindsay Lohan charged with battery for last month’s "throwdown" with Betty Ford Center rehabilitation technician Dawn Holland. Lohan returned to the Palm Desert drug dependency center after curfew and refused to take a Breathalyzer test. Lohan is accused of pushing Holland and hurting her wrist as she tried to dial 911! If they want ya, they'll getcha: Seems like Gucci Mane just doesn’t know how to stay out of trouble. The rapper may be facing more jail time after being thrown into prison for violating his probation, stemming CubA gooDing Jr from an arrest last year. The rapper was actually arrested on Dec. 16 last year at Waka Flocka Flame’s Georgia home after police, who suspected him of being a part of a prostitution ring, raided it. He was released shortly afterward. Happy Birthday to YOU and Celebs this week: Cuba Gooding Jr. 42, and Verne "Mini Me" Troyer 41! Thanks for Rollin With A Brotha in DFW's Elite News and online at
