METRO w w w. G A R L A N D J O U R N A L . co m Zumbathon to benefit child car seat safety program of Injury Prevention Center of Greater DALLAS – Want to have a fun dance workout and improve car safety for kids at the same time? A Zumbathon benefiting the Injury Prevention Center of Greater Dallas (IPC), located at Parkland Health & Hospital System, will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Aug. 10 at the Fireside Recreation Center, 8601 Fireside Drive, Dallas. Registration fee of $12 can be paid at the door. Proceeds will be used to purchase child safety seats that the IPC provides to families. Space at the Zumbathon is limited to 200 participants. Zumba fitness classes are often called a “dance-fitness party,” combining Latin music and high-energy dance steps in a vigorous cardiovascular workout. A “Zumbathon” is a Zumba fitness class that is open to the public and raises funds for a charity, organization, group or individual in need. Leading this event are Zumba instructor Sylvia Velasco along with disc jockey Sonido Vandido. Velasco approached the IPC with the Zumbathon fundraising idea

because, she said, “I had heard this organization does a lot of good for kids and I wanted to do something to help them.” The IPC helps create a safe community where the people of Dallas can live, work and play. The center works with the community to reduce injuries and deaths from car crashes, burns, falls, child abuse and other injuries. One of its successful initiatives is a car seat inspection program offered free of charge to Dallas area- residents. Families must bring their car, child and current car seat to the inspection station. During the inspection, a trained child passenger safety technician inspects the child’s car seat for recalls, damages, expiration and proper use depending on the child’s age, height and weight. If the child is not in an appropriate seat, and if resources allow it, the IPC will replace his or her current seat with an appropriate seat for the child’s age, height and weight. In addition to the car seat inspection, parents are educated on the law, the

type of car seat that is recommended for their child, and on the proper use and installation of the car seat in the vehicle. The car seat inspection stations are held twice monthly at Parkland’s Vickery Meadow Health Center, 8224 Park Lane, Suite 130, Dallas, 75231 and at the West Dallas Multipurpose Center, 2828 Fish Trap Road, Dallas, 75212. Families can also call 214.590.4455 to make an appointment for an inspection. “We want every child to have a safe ride and we know that proper use of child safety seats saves lives,” said Shelli Stephens-Stidham, Director, IPC of Greater Dallas. “We’re grateful to Sylvia Velasco, Sonido Vandido and all the generous Zumba enthusiasts who will turn out to have a good time and support our mission of keeping kids safe.” For more information about the Zumbathon, please call 214.791.2504.

Garland conducts Sewer Main Smoke Testing - During the months of August, September, the Inflow/Infiltration Division of the Water Department will perform smoke testing on the sanitary sewer mains. The testing will be accomplished in three phases. Phase #1 - Area from Buckingham to Lawler between Glenville and Plano Rd. Phase #2 - Area from Lawler to W. Walnut between Forest Ridge and Plano Rd.

Phase #3 - Area from Lawler to W. Walnut between Plano Rd. and N. Yale Smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system is conducted to identify potential rainwater sources by blowing low pressure, non-toxic, non-staining smoke into a section of sewer line. Smoke emissions from manholes and from the ground indicate defects in the manholes, sewer mains, and sewer laterals through which rainwater may enter the sewer.

GARLAND’S MOST WANTED The suspects listed below are on the Garland Police Department’s Most Wanted List. If you know any of the listed people here and/ or where they may be located, please notify the investigator handling the case or contact Garland Crime Stoppers online at garlandcrimestoppers.org or by phone at 972-272-TIPS (8477). Wanted: Fail to Comply With Sex Offender Registration Brown, Phillip; White Male, DOB 01/27/1984, 6’2”, 170 lbs, brown eyes, brown hair; last known address, 630 Torrance; Garland, Texas.

Reducing rainwater entering the sanitary sewer pipes reduces the cost of treatment at the two wastewater treatment plants. A door hanger will be delivered three days in advance to streets where the smoke testing will occur. Since rain or high winds reduce the effectiveness of the testing, a test area may be postponed. Residents will be notified if defects are found on private property.

SHARPTON: We Need More Than Just a Conversation on Race; We Need Legislative Action By Rev. Al Sharpton

Recently, we witnessed a historic moment across this country. In 100 cities from coast-to-coast, people rallied against ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws and called on the Department of Justice to investigate whether the unarmed teenager’s civil rights were violated. With only days to organize, the National Action Network (NAN) spearheaded these demonstrations that proved how people were engaged, visibly frustrated by injustice and most importantly, knew that nothing would change going forward without a demand for substantive action. Discussions about race are good, we need that as well, but unless those conversations are leading to legislative change, they aren’t doing much for us as a nation. Many thought organizing a 100-city vigil in four days was unthinkable; many simply didn’t believe we could do it. But we did. It was grassroots mobilization that brought tens of thousands out on a Saturday where the weather ranged from pouring rain to sweltering heat in different cities. We watched men, women, children, Black, White, Brown, the elderly, the young and folks from all socio-economic backgrounds join together to rally on the side of truth, fairness and justice. We witnessed celebrities like BeyoncĂŠ and Jay-Z lend their support in places like New York. And we saw peaceful protesters in these cities energized to take the battle for equality to the next level. Now we just need the law to catch up. There are those that try to pull the

wool over people’s eyes. They try to twist and alter facts so that we may not get a clear picture of reality. That may work sometimes. But sooner or later, the truth shall prevail. And sooner rather than later, the people will demand change. Trayvon Martin was an unarmed 17-year-old. Trayvon Martin committed no

How is that justice? The man who killed Trayvon, George Zimmerman, gets to return to his old life; meanwhile, this mother of three who was protecting herself and her children is rotting in a prison cell. That sort of blatant injustice cannot be hidden. People will see through the hypocrisy and they will accept nothing less

In another case in the state of Florida, an African-American mother by the name of Marissa Alexander fired a warning shot to scare off her abusive husband. She was denied the ability to use ‘Stand Your Ground’ in her defense and is currently serving a 20year sentence. crime. Trayvon Martin went to store to buy Skittles and an iced tea. Trayvon Martin was shot dead by a civilian who had no authority to stop him. Trayvon Martin’s killer wasn’t arrested for weeks until after the horrible incident. Those are facts. And facts cannot be denied no matter how they may be twisted or spun.

She was denied the ability to use ‘Stand Your Ground’ in her defense and is currently serving a 20-year sentence.

than our laws becoming modified so as to protect all of us equally. We cannot live in a society that continues to give preferential treatment to some, while castigating and punishing others. That is not progress; that is where our work remains. Whenever I speak about the fight for civil rights today, some try to attack me and say this isn’t the 1960s. Well on August 24th, NAN and Martin Luther King III will actually be conducting a massive demonstration to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘March on Washington’. As we pay homage to his vision, some try to argue that there’s no need to rally

This follows the recent movie theater attack in Aurora, The horror of the Sandy Hook Colorado and multiple college Elementary School massacre campus and high school

shootings over the past years. And daily in major cities like Chicago, the trauma builds. This year as of Dec. 10, Chicago has witnessed 485 killed in gun violence, 125 under the age of 18. As of 2009, there were an estimated 310 million non-military firearms owned in America. The country is saturated with

anymore. To compare today’s challenges to those of the ‘60s is just as disingenuous as comparing the ‘60s to the days of slavery. Even though sitting at the back of the bus was better than being a slave, it did not mean that segregation should be accepted. Sure, times are much better now overall because so many of us fought tirelessly to make it that way, but that does not mean that we have arrived at a fully equal and fair society. Women today earn more than their grandmothers did, but that doesn’t solve the problem of gender income disparity. Every generation makes progress, but every generation must continue the journey. Our next step is making sure we all receive equal protection under the law. In the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict, we’ve seen a lot of talk. A discussion on the state of race in America is of course needed, but to reduce the worth of our lives into highbrow intellectual discourse is in itself profiling. When young men of color in places like New York City are disproportionately stopped and frisked by the police, we need more than just talk. When a mother of three fires a warning shot to scare off an abusive husband (whom she had a protective order against) gets 20 years in prison, we need more than just talk. When our prisons and courtrooms are overwhelmingly filled with minorities, we need more than just talk. And when a young boy like Trayvon Martin can be shot to death while simply heading home from the store, the time for talk is over. Now’s the time for legislative action. Rev Al Sharpton is the president of the National Action Network.

staggering 42.6 percent in June (up from a miserable 36.4 percent a year ago).

President Barack Obama eloquently described the agony experienced among African-Americans from the slaying of Trayvon Martin.

Blacks and Hispanics are clustered into low-wage, unstable jobs, and physically concentrated in impoverished ghettos and barrios, mostly in our nation’s cities.

He called for a more thoughtful “conversation� on race, convened not by politicians, but among families, in churches and workplaces. He suggested modest steps to provide greater training on racial profiling with police, greater efforts to figure out how to do a “better job helping young African-American men feel that they’re a full part of this society and that they’ve got pathways and avenues to succeed.�

VIEWPOINT

The president’s courageous comments merit praise and consideration. But we’ve had a long conversation about race in America. No small part of American history has been devoted to that “conversation� and that struggle. And as the president said, great progress has been made.

These men need more than a conversation about them from those who already have jobs. They need a plan. Lift them up where they belong. This is good policy for Americans. Lifting them is cheaper and much more wholesome than talking about them and leaving them in the margins.

What we need now is action. The president’s personal narrative must translate into policy. His sentiments must be turned into meaningful solutions.

Yet, the last time we had any major effort targeted at the concentrated areas of poverty and joblessness was Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty in the 1960s. In fact, Johnson’s Young African-American boys need war was remarkably successful, reducing positive reinforcement, but they also childhood poverty and providing work or need adequate nutrition as infants, good training to millions.

Since Republicans took control in North Carolina in 2012, the state has taken a hard shift to the right. So far this year, bills passed or pending by Republicans would eliminate the Earned Income Tax Credit for 900,000 low wage workers, reduce Medicaid benefits for 500,000 and federal unemployment benefits for 170,000, cut 30,000 kids out of pre-K, and transferred $90 million from public to voucher schools. In North Carolina, people of conscience realized that a conversation about the situation wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough. The Rev. William Barber III, president of the North Carolina NAACP, helped create â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moral Mondays,â&#x20AC;? weekly protests at the state capitol to â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramatize the shameful condition of

our state.â&#x20AC;? These protests have grown dramatically, with thousands getting arrested in peaceful civil disobedience to challenge the assault on voting rights and on the poor. This week, President Obama will travel to Knox College in Illinois to outline out his agenda on jobs and the economy once more. He will contrast â&#x20AC;&#x153;middle-outâ&#x20AC;? economics, a focus on the strengthening the middle class, with the trickle-down economics of Republicans. If we are to provide hope for young African-American boys, we need a bottom up economics, as well, targeted to provide jobs in communities scarred by high levels of unemployment and poverty. Whatever the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda, Rev. Barber is right. Nothing will get through the obstructionists in Congress unless citizens of conscience mobilize across the nation and demand action. That will create the conversation we need to make progress once more.

Over the past forty years, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Jr. has played a pivotal role in virtually every movement for empowerment, peace, civil rights, gender equality, and economic and social justice. On August 9, 2000, President Bill Clinton awarded Reverend Jackson the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest civilian honor. -

(Roman 4:17-21) my question today is you fully persuaded who is with you at all times. Paul was also persuaded (Roman 8:35-39) Paul was persuaded and convinced nothing in his past or present life would separate him from the love of God. When you are convinced of who is in the ship with you worry will be in your of the past. You want worry about tomorrow anymore.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am deeply impressed with the progress that President Barack Obama has made during the first 100 days of his administration. Already we are seeing evidence of the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to dig our country out of recession and develop long-term, sustainable prosperity. President Obama has made two trips abroad, proving to us and to the world that he intends to repair our frayed alliances and restore our international leadership. Finally, the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s code of ethics has brought much-needed transparency and accountability to the White House. President Obama is delivering on the change that he promised.â&#x20AC;?

The administration has proposed trillions of dollars in new spending, which will result in higher taxes on Americans, while sharply raising our indebtedness to foreign creditors. On the national security front, I am very concerned about the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intention to close Guantanamo without a workable plan to relocate detainees. It is my sincere hope that, moving forward, the administration will adopt the productive, responsible approach to our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges that Americans deserve.â&#x20AC;?

But what does voting â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? and voting â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? mean? It is important to remember that the propositions are to amend the Dallas City Charter which, among other things, gives the MISSpower RAY to acquire city the Going Deep Roots property in fortheany public purpose. The propositions are worded to prohibit the city from acting on these before stated powers. Therefore, if a citizen would like the city to maintain those powers, they are to vote NO and vice versa.

Spiritually Speaking…

Faith is a ...

By James A. Washington

A friend gave me a book to read some time ago and I find myself looking for it in earnest. Faith is a Verb. Regardless of when and how you found religion, the important thing is what you do about it. The

purpose, my role and yours is clear. One must act on the Word as given by Jesus Christ. One must live faith rather than quote faith. One must be a church rather than merely go to one. So often in scripture we are reminded that Jesus was focused on a lifestyle pleasing to His Father. He was appalled at the use of “The Law” as an excuse not to fulfill the purpose of “The Law.” Jesus accepted any and everyone who believed in the Son of God as God. He therefore demanded appropriate behavior from apostles, elders, gentiles, Jews and sinners alike. The higher up the religious hierarchy, the more He expected you to do for and on the behalf of those yet enlightened. The more faith you professed, the more knowledge you gained, the more selfless you were to

fact that faith is a verb and not a noun means some action is required. That action should be precipitated by an understanding that faith means acting upon that which you believe in. For example, if you say you believe and recognize who Jesus is, then do you still gossip? Do you spread rumor and innuendo? Are you forgiving of the flaws and faults of others? Do you judge and condemn people? Can you turn the other cheek? I mean this faith as a verb thing can be demanding. It seems to be based on the principle that in the eternal, things have a much greater purpose than they seem in the here and now. Our understanding of this becomes critical to how we act. Mercy, charity and love all have a place in our everyday experiences as human beings in this physical world. If your faith is so shallow that the only thing that touches the heart is just that, what you can see and touch, then you’ve missed the point of eternal existence. Faith in the Almighty literally means claiming the more abundant life that Jesus promised. That life did not begin the day you were born and will not end the day you die; so says every professed Christian on the face of the planet. But how you handle this short existence, goes a long way towards the quality of your afterlife, so I’m told. “All things work together for good according to the Lord and those who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28. The consequence of faith means realizing that according to God’s

become. I guess what I’m trying to say is that the dynamics of faith, over time, will dictate that your lifestyle reflects the recognition of the importance of spiritual consequence, rather than physical or emotional retribution. “Therefore brother, we have an obligation…” Romans 8:12. We must live according to the Spirit within us, rather than the passions surrounding us that would otherwise seek to control and corrupt us. As faithful Christians, we should know the difference and act accordingly. “We have different gifts according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophecy, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching let him teach; if it is encouraging let him encourage…” Romans 21:6-8. Faith is yes, a verb, active in its pursuit of meeting every person on equal grounds with Christ Jesus; resilient in its defense against the frailties of flesh and bone and honest in its understanding that life is eternal. The physical world is no more than an entrance exam to the universal existence promised to us all. Just remember Christ took the final for you and me and oh by the way, He passed with flying colors. May God bless and keep you always.

Places! Going

Champion Doris Williams is coming to Th3rd Thursday Champion's Luncheon on August 15th @12:00noon. Doris works at Williams Chicken, Inc. (family owned business) as Payroll & HR Manager. She says, "one of her passions is people and she loves generating payroll checks." Doris will be sharing her inspiring story of GIVING BACK. When Doris was six years old the doctor said she had a heart murmur. The Allen/Thompson/Ross families took excellent care of her through prayer, love, medicine and funds. She comes from a family of prayer warriors so through prayer she was completely healed by the MOST HIGH GOD. Doris credits her parents for teaching her life-long lessons. She was taught to keep GOD in your life and trust him; to have good moral values, work hard and be nice to people even if they call you names to still respect them; and to always remember that GOD will not forget what you do for others. Doris graduated from L. G. Pinkston High School in West Dallas. She completed her core college classes at El Centro and Cedar Valley Community Colleges. Doris received a Bachelor's of Arts and Master degrees in Theology and Counseling from ITGW Theological Seminary in Rockdale TX. She plans to continue her education this year and study for a Doctoral Degree in Theology. Doris is truly a multi-tasker. She is the wife of Mr. Hiawatha Williams, mother of two sons, Joshua and Steven Williams. Before being employed at Williams Chicken, she home schooled her sons from kindergarten through 12th grade and they're successful in their chosen careers. In her quest to give back, Doris Williams founded Righteous Wisdom Services, Inc. (RWS) in November 2012. RWS provides tutorial services, academic enrichment, mentoring and life skills to inner city youth.

Y DENTISTRY Washington, D.C

Dear Gwendolyn:    For 37 years I have given my love to a man that still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to want me for his wife.  The romance started years ago.  For me, it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;love at first sight.â&#x20AC;?  Appointments Available) We dated for three years, he got married, got a divorce, and the rest of his life has been with me.  Although, we never lived together.  I thought this man had actually descended from Heaven when we started dating again.  To me, every day was a holiday and every night was a celebration.    Gwendolyn, how can some women get any man they want while other women cannot even get one?  My mother used to tell me that I was throwing away my life.  But one day she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good you are happy with him.â&#x20AC;?  Yes, I have put in the years but I am not sorry.  However, I am at the crossroad of deciding to quit him or continue to court.  I am 66 and he is 74.  I have been happy all those years and I am happy now.  What do you think I should do?                                     Brenda

Dear Brenda:     Soon your eyesight will become dim and your bones will become stiff.  Therefore, I think you and your friend should continue the courtship.  Happiness is a blessing and it does not always come in the form of a marriage license.  Ask some married women and they will verify that statement â&#x20AC;&#x201C; big time.  (Read The Four Factors: Should You Stay, Go or Improve Your Relationship? By Ron Gentile, PhD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sept. 2010)      Let me tell you this:  I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want   to seem hurtful towards you, but you must be realistic.  Sure, you could quit him and meet someone else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but if that happens, let him be younger than you.  Girl, old age is for real.  If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it, visit your nursing home facilities.  But even in those facilities, people fall in love and marry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even if a nurse has to hold their hands together because of their elderly age, muscles gone.

LIFESTYLE Q’s Website might be controversial but it’s one of most visited

BECOME DEBT- FREE in EIGHT

New York, NY, – Dedication, determination, and the desire to be the best are what drove HaitianAmerican Lee ‘Q’ O’Denat to become one of the hottest entrepreneurs and most influential hip-hop personalities in the country! He literally went from being homeless to being the force behind one of the most controversial, yet highly visited, websites in the world: www.WorldStarHipHop.com. According to renowned website info company Alexa, as CEO and Founder of WorldStar Hip Hop (WSHH), ‘Q’ has pushed his website to one of the top 200 websites in the country for traffic, beating out media giants like Oprah.com, CBS.com, MTV.com, VH1.com and BET.com. Based on its level of traffic alone, WSHH is comparable to a billiondollar brand. Not bad for a guy who dropped out of school in 9th grade! Today, this self-taught, tech-savvy music mogul stays focused on the technological trends that impact and drive today’s youth, knowing that it’s the 18-24 crowd that mostly frequent his site. This trendsetter recognizes hard work and only surrounds himself with techie geniuses; believing that if you surround yourself with losers – you become one! WSHH has been ranked #1 on the Source magazine’s Power List and has been honored three times by BET as “Best Hip Hop Online Site.” Averaging more than 70 million visits a month, this “shock site” has a global following that is unprecedented. Referring to his site as the "CNN of the ghetto,” Q’s philosophy is Reach one - Teach one and he is quick to offer budding video directors, music producers and artists an outlet and the chance to be seen or heard on his site. With a story that reads like a modern-day urban legend, ‘Q’ runs WSHH with a keen eye on the “hood” culture and the understanding that Hip Hop is here to stay. His website’s popularity with a worldwide urban audience has not gone unnoticed by corporate America either. Advertising mainstays such as WalMart, Fiber One (a General Mills product), Equifax, high-end retailer Bloomingdales, Volkswagen and Microsoft are just a few of the multibillion dollar companies that have chosen to promote their products on the site.

taking piano lessons at age 6… which he absolutely despised. The idea of working toward a Major League Baseball career served as the greatest inspiration through his teenage years much more so than the concept of practicing music. After his parents consistently pushed and encouraged him to stick with music, Zo! discovered a newfound passion by teaching himself how to play piano by ear by age 11. Zo! got his production start in 1992 when his parents brought home a Proteus MPS keyboard and a Brother PDC100 sequencer for him to figure out. Since then, he has emphasized the use of live instrumentation as the blueprint for his music while constantly looking to expand his sound with each album release. Carmen Rodgers “Rodgers lets the listener (and her man) know from the get go where things stand, opening with a defiant tone on the neo-soul midtempo, “Tell Your Story”: “Tell your story at the door / ‘cause I’ve heard it all before / and now I’m not so sure if I want this love anymore.” By the time of the terrific next song, the acoustic gem “Home,” Carmen is more reflective but just as resolved to end the relationship: “You say you want to come home / but home is where the heart lived / and I just want to move on / so should you.””— Chris Rizik, SoulTracks.com Where: The Prophet Bar / Historic Deep Ellum 2548 Elm St, Dallas, TX 75226 Time: Doors at 8:00pm & Show at 9:00pm

Already we are seeing evidence of the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to dig our country out of recession and develop long-term, sustainable prosperity. President Obama has made two trips abroad, proving to us and to the world that he intends to repair our frayed alliances and restore our international leadership. Finally, the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s code of ethics has brought much-needed transparency and accountability to the White House.

PROPOSITIONS 1 AND 2 Why YES means no and NO means yes Dallas is abuzz at the election issues before them on May 9 when citizens are asked to vote on the controverDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;LYTE sial & EBONY Convention Music Happenings Center Hotel that is being backed by Mayor Leppert. But what does voting â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? and voting â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? mean? It is important to remember that the propositions are to amend the Dallas City Charter which, among other things, gives the MISSpower RAY to acquire city the Going Deep in Roots property fortheany public purpose. The propositions are worded to prohibit the city from acting on these before stated powers. Therefore, if a citizen would like the city to maintain those powers, they are to vote NO and vice versa.
