SWAC Tournament Raids Garland Alabama State University claimed the men’s title by defeating Grambling State University, 65-48. GJN/PHOTOS

GSU Head Coach Bobby Washington said his team lost their swagger, especially in the second period. “I think the fight wasn’t there tonight and my hats off to Alabama State,” he said. GJN/PHOTOS Diane Xavier EDITOR

Fans traveled up to 600 miles to land in Garland, site of the 2011 Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament last week. The tournament was held at the Special Events Center in Garland. Alabama State University claimed the men’s title by defeating Grambling State University, 65-48. The ASU Hornets used their strong defense and dominated the boards by out rebounding Grambling State in the second period. Grambling State dominated the first period with

their speed and agility, scoring fast and furious with their leader, guard Donald Qualls who had 12 points. However, the GSU Tigers lost their momentum in the second period when they failed to make several of their outside shots. ASU’s defense proved to be too much for the Tigers. “We took away their jump shot and played great defensively,” ASU Head Coach Lewis Jackson said. “We made sure they had to take tough shots from the perimeter. At halftime, I told the team that they needed to attack the floor hard.” GSU Head Coach Bobby Washington said his team lost their swagger, espe-

cially in the second period. “I think the fight wasn’t there tonight and my hats off to Alabama State,” he said. The Hornets will play in the NCAA Tournament as the number 16th seed when they play the University of Texas-San Antonio on Wednesday, March 16th in Dayton. Ohio. ASU Fans Allan Knight and Jimmy Cross, a former Hornets player, said they traveled nearly 600 miles from Montgomery Alabama to witness the Hornets win the SWAC Title in Garland. “We were very confident in our team winning,” Knight said. “We attribute that to coach Lewis

Jackson, who made sure things got done.” “The defense was really good and this will be good experience for the team as they move on in the tournament,” Cross said. Hornets guard Tramaine Butler said the team must continue to play well both offensively and defensively to advance in the NCAA Tournament. “We just need to make all our free throws and continue to play great defense,” Butler said. On the lady’s side, The Prairie View A&M women’s basketball team will face Baylor in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday, March 20 in Waco, Texas. The Lady Panthers (21-11) defeated Southern to win the SWAC Conference Tournament and earn the automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship will be held March 19-April 5.

K AESNDOLYN S! E GW N I BA I would like to get married Dear Gwendolyn: I have been with my fiancé for 12 years and he recently asked me to marry him. We have been through a lot of problems dealing with his drinking. I have gone with him to AA meetings sometimes 4 and 5 times a week. When he drinks he repeats himself over and over. This drives me crazy. We pay our bills together and have no problems with that. He is not abusive but I don’t think I can be happy if he continues to drink.

Dear Alice: You have a decision to make - marry or stop living together. As to finance, you can provide for yourself even if you have to downsize your living status. Don’t be too concerned about being with your fiancé for 12 years. You see, time can slip away but there is no need to be unhappy because life is precious and short - and the people we love sometimes we cannot change. My advice to you is do not marry this man. You stated that his constant talking when he drinks drives you crazy. Girl, you don’t know the meaning of crazy but you will if you marry him. He says he loves you. Because alcohol destroys the body, being in love with you could be true, but it is obvious he does not love himself. However, Alice, if he gets his life together soon, then it is possible he will make you a good husband - but not in the present state of his actions. As to your wanting to get married, while you are single - enjoy being single and not spending your time wishing for something that when it comes, you may not like it.

Spiritual Encouragement

y b Ru ANT GR He is Risen “Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.” John 20:1 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleaned like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he is risen! Luke 24:2-6 The sacrifice Jesus made of going to the cross has placed us in a roll of receiving forgiveness. The Resurrection day is our wonderful day of redemption. I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, it is finished. The empty tomb is a miracle of compassion and a blessing of love. Our Savior

Bethlehem Baptist Church to Host Christian Author Simulcast April 1, 2

LifeWay Women’s Going Beyond: Life Interrupted Simulcast with Priscilla Shirer to challenge women GREENVILLE, TX Thousands of women will gather on April 1 and 2 to see Priscilla Shirer, one of the nation’s best-loved female Christian authors and speakers, as she presents Going Beyond: Life Interrupted Simulcast, an extraordinarily intimate and inspiring event. The event combines powerful Bible teaching with worship and prayer time, as Shirer encourages women to go beyond the everyday, ordinary life to a soul-satisfying walk with Christ. Participants will leave knowing that the challenge to take their relationship with God to the next level is worth every effort. “Women from different denominations, different cultures and different backgrounds all come together

to learn from Priscilla as they experience God’s power,” said Paige Greene, director of women’s event for LifeWay. “They feel good and have a great time, while also leaving equipped to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.” A wife and mother of three young sons, Shirer understands the unique needs and daily stresses of overworked women whose lives seem to be hanging together by a thread. Her goal is to help women in all seasons of life, from all backgrounds, see how applicable the Bible is to their daily situations. In addition to Priscilla’s teaching, Anthony Evans will lead worship at the event. “Not only is his vocal ability amazing, but his heart for ministry is amaz-

e n i g v Di ivin L Getting Our House in Order IA



y rd u C Mc

With the coming of spring there comes new growth and renewed energy in each of us. Perhaps this new energy in us is due to the freshness and newness all around us in nature. Just as nature takes this time to renew and refresh itself with spring, we too desire this renewal and freshness in our lives. It is a renewal that can be most observable and evident in our homes. We call this renewing our “spring cleaning”. A ritual and tradition in many homes, spring is typically a time when many of us will try to reorganize or refresh our homes. Since a family typically makes up a home, the reorganizing or refreshing of that home often involves the whole family. Father, mother and children will generally each take part in this task. It is a time to organize closets, drawers, cabinets, rooms or garages. It is a time to shed or rid our homes of things we no longer want or need. Specifically, it is a time to get rid of the clutter in our lives. It is a time for turning a new leaf in our lives or at least in our homes we hope! In doing so, we often promise ourselves that once the task is accomplished we vow to keep things straight and in order. In essence, it is a vow to get and keep our house in order! Most of us have experienced the pride and joy that we get in return after completing the sometimes overwhelming or daunting challenge of spring cleaning or the organization of our home. In addition to this pride and joy of achievement, we also gain other benefits. These benefits may include the satisfaction of finally being organized, more space, less stress due to less clutter, comfort and feelings of a burden being lifted. Consequently, while the benefits received from having a clean and well organized home are important, necessary and joyous indeed, these benefits are pale in comparison with what God’s Divine Plan offers us for getting our house in order. For our efforts for physically cleaning and organizing our home are for looks and merely shows what’s on the surface. Thus, our accomplishments for this type of home organizing brings only temporary joy lasting for only a few months at best, while God’s Divine Plan brings us joy for an eternity. Joshua 24:15 states, “But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord”. The key to having order in our home is dependent upon how we live our lives in our home. We should make sure that in our home things are done according to God’s will and not our own. Our recognition, agreement and putting into action the words of the above scripture serves as fundamental ingredients for truly getting Our House in Order!

Erin and Ryan McCurdy PHALCONSTAR NEWS

With today’s economy in a tailspin and uncertainty in the workplace, everyone has to be budget conscience. Families must watch and account for every penny they spend, in doing so there are a few things that should be re-evaluated. In other words, how or where our money is spent is very important. It also means being wise and responsible in making spending decisions. For instance, don’t max out the credit cards just to keep up with the hottest fashions. While keeping up with the latest fashions should not be a top priority during our woeful economic times, there is no reason why one

can’t still dress and look their best. The following are a few suggestions that might help you to be fashion savvy while being budget conscience: First, try going shopping in your own closet - we all have those items in our closets with the tags still on them that we somehow never got around to wearing for one reason or another. Well, now is a great time to rediscover why we purchased that special piece that we thought we couldn’t live without. Second, window shop or scan fashion magazines and catalogues for ideas for how to best utilize your current wardrobe pieces which leads to the next suggestion. Continued Page 11

Symposium Held

The theme for the Ladies & Adolescent Symposium was “Vessels for the Master’s Use” 2 Timothy 2:20-21, and the color scheme for the event was purple. From Page 6

this church support each other and work very well together also. I enjoyed the different selections of songs that the Sisters of Unconditional Love (SOUL) Singers sang which were all acappella. There were event times when the congregation would sing a few selections with the SOUL Singers also. The theme for the Ladies & Adolescent Symposium was “Vessels for the Master’s Use” 2 Timothy 2:20-21, and the color scheme for the event was purple. The keynote speaker for the event was Vivian Foster. Mrs. Foster spoke to the congregation about the scripture

that also included a powerpoint presentation. One particular moment of the event which I enjoyed very much was when anyone with a yellow sticker in their program was asked to participate in a contest. In the contest the women were selected to be in groups of five members to put pieces of a broken vessel back together holding it with only their hands. I was one of the participants and my group won 1st place and we were given a 1st place ribbon, and a gift. I would like to acknowledge all of the 2011 Planning Committee at the Eastside Church of Christ for a wonderful event and I’m looking forward to attending again.

Third, mix and match the old with the new. For instance, pair up a new top with a skirt or slacks you already have, add a new belt or perhaps a purse to change up the look of a dress or suit you already own. Fourth, accessorize - don’t underestimate the value of what a few pieces of nice costume jewelry can add to any outfit. This is an inexpensive idea that can make a bold statement by virtually changing the look of any outfit (this emphasizes how window shopping or magazines can help you utilize what you already have). Fifth, borrow or swap pieces - in times past, sisters and/or girlfriends would swap or borrow pieces or outfits when they needed something special or different to wear or when money was tight. Sixth, visit thrift stores, budget shops and even garage sales for unique fashion finds! This was once a way of life for many in times past, but is now making a big come back, a necessity for some, a choice

for others. In fact, thrift or resale shops seem to be all the rage for many celebrities who consider their thrift shop finds to be chic and quite fashionable. Finally, remember to watch for typical end of season clearance sales, mark-offs, and to check the department stores sales racks for bargain finds. Hopefully, these timely suggestions will not only help to keep your budget under control, but also help to make your fashion dollars count! ATTENTION STYLISTS AND BARBERS.
