The struggle for voting rights for all Americans must continue -- and it will.” The crossing jubilee was an appropriHolder

Budget Cuts to Affect Elderly, Students, Veterans, Poor By Ronald W. Weathersby

The ongoing confrontation between the White House and Republicans in Congress over the federal budget is getting worse this time in a new attempt to avert the “sequestration” process which is scheduled to take place March 1. Sequestration is a series of automatic, across-the-board cuts to government agencies, totaling $1.2 trillion over 10 years. The cuts would be split 50-50 between defense and domestic discretionary spending. With Tennessee Republicans in Congress in total agreement to oppose any plan by the president the White House released a list of cuts that will hit the Volunteer State if no remedy is forthcoming. Unfortunately it seems that the majority of the cuts will negatively affect people who can least afford it Teachers and Schools: Tennessee will lose approximately $14.8 million in funding for primary and secondary education, putting around 200 teacher and aide jobs at risk. In addition about 32,000 fewer students would be served and approximately 60 fewer schools would receive funding. Additionally, Tennessee will lose approximately $11.7 million in funds for about 140 teachers, aides, and staff who help children with disabilities. Work-Study Jobs: Around 1,660 fewer low income students in Tennessee would receive aid to help them finance the costs of college and around 720 fewer students will get work-study jobs that help them pay for college. Head Start: Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for approximately 1,200 children in Tennessee, reducing access to

critical early education. Protections for Clean Air and Clean Water: Tennessee would lose about $2,211,000 in funding to ensure clean water and air quality, as well as prevent pollution from pesticides and hazardous waste. In addition, Tennessee could lose another $1,216,000 in grants for fish and wildlife protection. Military Readiness: In Tennessee, approximately 7,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed, reducing gross pay by around $36.9 million in total. U.S. Army base operation funding would be cut by about $1.9 million in Tennessee. Law Enforcement and Public Safety Funds for Crime Prevention and Prosecution: Tennessee will lose about $367,000 in Justice Assistance Grants that support law enforcement, prosecution and courts, crime prevenCuts

‘A Walk Down Historic Jefferson Street’ Book Review By Reginald Stuart

It’s really hard to fully articulate the role Jefferson Street played in Nashville’s life and history between the 1940’s and 1970’s. Those who drive down this historic street today or talk with people who lived on or near Jefferson during that period, hear and read about the historic street. Still, they don’t really get it. Edward Kindall, retired attorney and veteran former Metro Schools Board member, takes a key step in filling some of the blanks in the Jefferson Street story in his new book, “A Walk Down Historic Jefferson Street.” What makes Kindall’s book as close to the real thing as an author can get is the fact that he was born and grew up on Jefferson and has lived near it for more than 60 years. He knows of what he speaks in his book. It is a part almanac, part declaration paperback loaded with anecdotal detail and laced with a series of people vignettes only a true native of the neighborhood could capture. Yes, “A Walk Down Historic Jefferson Street,” suffers from many of the pitfalls of first-time, self published works ranging from occasional typos to wrong first or middle names or only last names. Those shortcomings aside, Kindall has achieved what far too few Nashvillians have done outside church histories: make some effort at putting our story in writing and print for generations to come so they will know we did more than be born and eventually die. The bulk of Kindall’s book is a reflection on what made Jefferson Street Jefferson Street. In its hey days, it was a thriving business and residential corridor, stretching from near the Jefferson Street Bridge crossing the Cumberland River on its eastern most edge to the heart of the campus of what is now Tennessee State University. The Jefferson Street Kindall vividly captures was characterized by well dressed people (even the poorest of the poor looked clean as they could and self-respectful). He recalls polite neighbors who cared about their yards, streets and community, whether they were suit-wearing teachers and doctors or uniformed truck drivers and dirt shoveling laborers.

His reflection on Jefferson Street residents reminds us the street was once lined with fashionable homes occupied by some of the city’s `who’s who?’ in past decades. He doesn’t ignore the raunchy dimensions Jefferson, with its well patronized restaurants, beer joints, night clubs, hotels, pool hall and dice spots. By the same token, he doesn’t dwell on them out of proportion to the rest of the life that made Jefferson special. In his work on his hometown street, Kindall has cast the map for subsequent efforts that could reach the dept of Joseph Lyford’s “The Air Tight Cage,” his highly respected book of the 1960’s on the evolution of New York’s Upper West Side of Manhattan between Harlem and West 86th Street. In taking time along the way to hint at what caused Jefferson Street to change to what it is now, Kindall reinforces an all too familiar explanation: construction of Interstate 40 through the heart of North Nashville, housing and school desegregation. The impact on Jefferson Street of the Interstate 40 “intrusion,” as he calls it, seems to reverberate over everything he suggests explains has caused Jefferson Street to turn into the “dysfunctional, splintered and deteriorating” community it is today. In his final chapters in which he lays out his recipe for bringing back the best of Jefferson Street, Kindall does not call for a return of the days he remembers as a child, a teen or young adult growing up on and living along Jefferson. He only ask for the best of its values of that era and a His detail reaches the hickory smoke coming from realization that in its day Jefferson Street was really someneighborhood bar-b-cue pits and explains which barber thing special, its three Black colleges, known nationwide, shops and beauty parlors were known for who and what. serving as reminders Jefferson was home to something Strictly enforced racial segregation laws, Kindall notes, special for many Americans. had the side effect of creating unity among neighbors and As lost in the demise of Jefferson Street are the words guaranteed income for Black merchants.

Trailblazing Female Harpist Celebrated in New Book By A.J. Dugger III

Mary Sue Welsh’s book, “One Woman In A Hundred: Edna Phillips and The Philadelphia Orchestra,” was released on February 1, 2013. (Photo Credit University of Illinois Press)

Author Mary Sue Welsh has recently written a book about the legendary Edna Phillips, the first woman to play in The Philadelphia Orchestra. The book, titled “One Woman In A Hundred: Edna Phillips and The Philadelphia Orchestra,” was released on February 1, 2013. “Edna Phillips was the first woman to become a principal player in a major American orchestra,” said Welsh, who was a friend of Phillips and worked on the book for over 20 years. Phillips was born in 1907 in Reading, Pennsylvania. Throughout the book, the readers will get to view historic events through her eyes, including the Great Depression and World War II. Inside the pages are also revealing accounts of not just Phillips but the musicians she shared the stage with. “Just as much as it’s her story, it’s also the Philadelphia Orchestra’s story,” said Welsh. “She had all those stories to tell about the players.” Phillips broke the gender barrier in the modern orchestras. “Back in the early 1900s, women were not supposed to be able to perform in orchestras. They supposedly weren’t good enough or strong

enough, so the men in the orchestra wouldn’t allow it,” said Welsh. Indeed, the late legendary conductor Sir Thomas Beecham once said, “I do not like to see women in orchestras. As an orchestra member once said to me,‘If she’s attractive, I can’t play with her. If she’s not, I won’t.’” In 1930 at the age of 23, Phillips became Philadelphia Orchestra’s first female member and the principal harpist. “She also wanted to get more work for harpists to play so she commissioned a lot of work for the harp,” Welsh explained. By the time Phillips was on board, the Philadelphia Orchestra’s popularity was soaring. “It was the hottest ticket in town. It was really the place to be,” said Welsh. It was not just Phillip’s talent and sense of humor that propelled her to success in the male-dominated field—part of her success was her ability to make smart decisions. At one point in her career, Phillip’s conductor, Leopold Stokowski, had an affair with the reclusive actress Greta Garbo. There were times when he flirted with Phillips as well. “Phillips managed to sneak out of it,” said Welsh. “Her teacher said that if she had an affair with him, she’d get thrown out like an old shoe.” In the end, Phillips

managed to decline Stokowski’s advances but keep her job. During the 1980s, Welsh met Phillips when she was the executive director of the Bach Festival of Philadelphia. At the time, Phillips was the chair of the festival’s board of directors. Naturally, the two worked closely together and developed a friendship. “I got to know her and we became good friends,” said Welsh. “We worked together and sometimes went to concerts together.” In 1990, Phillips asked Welsh to help write her memoirs. “We outlined the whole book,” said Welsh. “We had over a year’s worth of interviews, but then she became ill.” Welsh watched her elderly friend suffer a series of strokes. At the age of 96 in 2003, Phillips passed away. After Phillip’s death, Welsh couldn’t let those revealing interviews go to waste. “The stories kept tugging at me,” Welsh said. “After she died, I turned it into a biography. I did some research and interviewed a few others, but the book is built around her memories.” The book was released on February 1st. For more information, visit onewomaninahundred.com

Wisconsin Author Recounts Childhood Struggles in Book By A.J. Dugger III

Paul Lamar Hunter released an inspirational book last year about how he overcame the adversity he suffered during his turbulent childhood and managed to grow up to become a successful adult. Hunter, 42, is the 19th child out of 21 natural children, 65 grandchildren, and 61 great-grandchildren. Growing up in Wisconsin, Hunter had a rough upbringing but didn’t let it stop him from reaching his goals. “Its not how you start out in life...it’s how you finish,” said Hunter. “Perseverance and desire will always outlast adversity and negativity.” On September 21, 2012, Hunter released his book, “No Love, No Charity: The Success of the 19th Child.” “This is a book for parents because it deals with the mental, physical and spiritual abuse that my siblings and I received from my mom,” said Hunter. Though she claimed to be a christian woman, Hunter revealed that his mother’s main priority was her business, “Love and Charity Homeless Shelter.” “She displayed more love to outsiders than her own children,” Hunter told The Tennessee Tribune. “This book is a life-changing read for people in the world, especially parents. There are some things that parents shouldn’t say or do. This book will really change people. It will give them a totally different perspective.” The book is full of personal revelations from his past, but he wanted to inspire others to not let horri-

ble circumstances destroy them. “I wanted to write it for my siblings, nieces and nephews to let them know that whatever hardships you’re going through is going to make you a better person,” Hunter said. “I wanted to inspire young men and women in this world whose parents abused them. I want to give a lot of people inspiration, hope and courage. There is light at the end of the tunnel.” After losing his father in a car accident when he was eight years old, Hunter says that he suffered hardship after hardship. “Over the adversities and struggles, it made me a better person today because if I did not have those experiences, I would not have had the drive to graduate from college.” Hunter is the first of his siblings to graduate from college. He earned a bachelors degree in business administration from Iowa University, and received an associates degree in supervisory management from Gateway Technical College in 2005. He is also a former student of Jackson State University. “In becoming the first in my family to graduate from college, I laid the foundation for my siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives to go out and obtain a bachelors degree in some type of field,” Hunter explained. Hunter, a father of four, expressed interest in coming to Nashville and speaking to young men and women about the importance of education.

Student-athletes also have made time to complete more than 3,000 community service hours annually by mentoring youngsters, visiting the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and serving others in the Nashville community. In July 2012, Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos appointed David Williams II vice chancellor for athletics and university affairs and athletics director. Williams is building on his experience as a Vanderbilt Law School faculty member and on his previous roles as general counsel and university secretary to guide the Commodore ship into productive waters. Williams has pushed Vanderbilt athletics into national leadership positions, including finding innovative ways to promote study abroad, an experience once thought unattainable for the studentathlete in a constant cycle of training and competition. When the program was originally unveiled for student-athletes, three applied. In recent years, the department’s senior managers have reviewed a host of applicants, approving trips for as many as a dozen a year. Vanderbilt teams also are encouraged to travel internation-

ally. In recent years, the baseball team has been to Japan and Hong Kong, and the men’s and women’s tennis teams visited South Africa. “Our goals mirror those of the university,” Williams said. “We strive for excellence, we undertake leadership roles, and we insist that our student-athletes have a rewarding, well-rounded experience that wins both ways—in athletic competition and in the classroom.” Zeppos also has encouraged the Department of Athletics to collect, analyze and apply data to track undergraduate academic metrics and to bolster Vanderbilt’s federal graduation rate with the hopes of it rising even higher. Athletics’ higher profile has been a catalyst for alumni and administrators to collaborate on raising funds for a new multipurpose facility and addition to Vanderbilt’s Student Recreation Center. Construction, which began in fall 2012, involves enhancing the existing rec center so that it can serve faculty, staff and students and building a new 120-yard-long indoor practice field surrounded by a 300-meter indoor track for use by student-athletes as well as the entire university community.

Congress Honors Rosa Parks While Supreme Court Targets the Voting Rights Act

At 11 am, as Congress unveiled a statue honoring Rosa Parks, the civil rights leaders of today (Including Rep. John Lewis, who nearly died in Selma during “Bloody Sunday”) were gathered inside the Supreme Court, listening to a challenge to the centerpiece of the Voting Rights Act. The stark contrast illustrated the profound contradictions of American democracy when it comes to race and political power—the progress we’ve made has always been met by equally intense efforts to roll back that progress. And that remains true today, especially on February 27, 2013. “To honor Rosa Parks in the fullest manner, each of us must do our part to protect that which has been gained, defend the great documents upon which those gains were obtained and continue our pursuit of a more perfect union,” Congressman James Clyburn, who grew up in segregated South Carolina in the 1940s and ’50s, said at the statue unveiling. Parks herself was present when Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act in the Capitol rotunda on August 6, 1965. Twelve years before famously refusing to move to the back of a segregated bus in Montgomery, Parks attempted to register to vote. She was denied three times, and had to pass a literacy test and pay a poll tax in 1945 just to exercise what should have been her fundamental right. That’s the way America was before the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Inside the courtroom, five conservative Justices made the case for why Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act—which compels parts or all of sixteen states with a history of racial discrimination in voting to clear election-related changes with the federal government—is no longer necessary. (See my recent Nation article, “Why Are Conservative Trying to Destroy the Voting Rights Act?” for a definitive account of the Shelby County v. Holder case and the conservative organization and money behind the challenge.) Section 5 is the most effective section of the most effective civil rights law ever passed by Congress and has been called the “keystone of our voting rights” by Attorney General Eric Holder. But to the conservative majority on the court, Section 5 is an antiquated infringement on state sovereignty, treating some states differently than others based on outdated data from the 1960s and ’70s. Justice Scalia mocked the entirety of the Voting Rights, calling congressional support for the legislation (which has been overwhelmingly reauthorized four times, most recently in 2006, and signed by four Republican presidents) a “perpetuation of racial entitlement.” It quickly became clear inside the courtroom that there are four votes to uphold Section 5 and four votes to strike it down. Justice Kennedy, as is so often the case, appears to be the swing vote, although he certainly leaned toward the conservatives. Justice Kennedy seemed preoccupied by two questions: number one, does Section 5 still cover the states and localities where discrimination is most concentrated in order to justify its federalism constraints? And number two, are other parts of the Voting Rights Act, most notably Section 2, an adequate replacement for Section 5? Section 2 applies nationwide, permanently, and puts the burden of proof on plaintiffs to show that a voting change is discriminatory after it has gone into effect, whereas Section 5 must be reauthorized by Congress and is targeted only at those with the worst history of voting discrimination, who must pre-clear any voting change with the Department of Justice or a federal court in DC. Section 2 has often been described as the “sword” to Section 5’s “shield.” Solicitor General Donald Verrilli and NAACP Legal Defend Fund counsel Debo Adegbile did their best to assuage Kennedy’s concerns. Adegbile noted that jurisdictions covered by Section 5 accounted for a quarter of the US population but made up 81 percent of successful published and unpublished lawsuits that reached a favorable verdict for minority plaintiffs under Section 2, proving that discrimination remained localized in Section 5 states. Kennedy seemed unpersuaded: JUSTICE KENNEDY: if Congress is going to single out separate States by name, it should do it by name. If not, it should use criteria that are relevant to the existing

[problem] — and Congress just didn’t have the time or the energy to do this; it just reenacted it. VERRILLI: I think it was rational and effective in 1965. The Court upheld it then, it upheld it three more times after that. JUSTICE KENNEDY: Well, the Marshall Plan was very good, too, the Morale Act, the Northwest Ordinance, but times change. VERRILLI: But the question is whether times had changed enough and whether the differential between the covered jurisdictions and the rest of the country had changed enough that Congress could confidently make the judgment that this was no longer needed. Verrilli and Adegbile described Section 2 as a poor substitute for Section 5. As Kennedy himself noted in 2009, “Section 2 cases are very expensive. They are very long. They are very inefficient.” Section 2 lawsuits are incredibly complex, can take years to adjudicate and often cost millions of dollars, which few victims of voting discrimination can afford. Congress included Section 5 in the Voting Rights Act precisely because case-by-case litigation had failed to stop voting discrimination prior to 1965. “The reason Section 5 was created was because States were moving faster than litigation permitted to catch the new forms of discriminatory practices that were being developed,” said Justice Sotomayor. The genius of Section 5 was to “shift the advantage of time and inertia from the perpetrators of the evil to its victims,” Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote in the 1966 case South Carolina v. Katzenbach, the first of five unsuccessful challenges to Section 5. In last year’s election cycle, the Justice Department under Section 5 opposed voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina, early-voting cutbacks in Florida and redistricting maps in Texas. The federal courts in Washington sided with the DOJ in three of four cases, finding evidence of discriminatory effect and/or purpose, while also blocking South Carolina’s voter ID law for 2012. If Section 5 was gone and Section 2 was the only recourse, these major changes would’ve been in effect during the last election, and could only be challenged after years of costly and difficult litigation. The voters disenfranchised in the meantime would have no recourse, other than the hopes of a preliminary injunction from the courts, which is an increasingly rare prospect in a judiciary dominated by conservatives, especially in the South. Amazingly, the voter suppression attempts that spread nationwide during the last election never came up during the oral arguments. The justices did not hear, for example, that six of the nine fully covered states under Section 5 passed new voting restrictions since 2010, including voter ID laws (Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia), limits on early voting (Georgia) and restrictions on voter registration (Alabama and Texas), compared to only one-third of noncovered jurisdictions during the same period. The insularity of the Supreme Court was particularly evident today. Opponents of Section 5 pointed to the fact that minority voter registration and turnout rates in places like Alabama are equal to or exceed states not covered by Section 5, but that hardly covers the scope of voting discrimination that exists in the South today. CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: General, is it the government’s submission that the citizens in the South are more racist than citizens in the North? GENERAL VERRILLI: It is not, and I do not know the answer to that, Your Honor, but I do think it was reasonable for Congress— CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: Well, once you said it is not, and you don’t know the answer to it. GENERAL VERRILLI: It’s not our submission. As an objective matter, I don’t know the answer to that question. But what I do know is that Congress had before it evidence that there was a continuing need based on Section 5 objections, based on the purpose-based character of those objections, based on the disparate Section 2 rate, based on the persistence of polarized voting, and based on a gigantic wealth of jurisdiction-specific and anecdotal evidence, that there was a continuing need.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: A need to do what? GENERAL VERRILLI: To maintain the deterrent and constraining effect of the Section 5 preclearance process in the covered jurisdictions CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: And not impose it on everyone else? GENERAL VERRILLI: And—that’s right, given the differential in Section 2 litigation, there was a basis for Congress to do that. One of the main tensions inside the courtroom was whether Congress or the Court gets to determine what is and isn’t valid under the Voting Rights Act. After all, the act has been overwhelmingly reauthorized four times by Congress, most recently in 2006. To Justice Scalia, that means it must be unconstitutional. “Even the name of it is wonderful: The Voting Rights Act,” Scalia said sarcastically. “Who is going to vote against that in the future?” Yet both conservative and liberal members of Congress are urging the Court to respect both the original and recent findings of the legislative body. Notes an amicus brief filed by bipartisan members of Congress, including recent chairs of the House Judiciary Committee: “This Court has recognized that Congress acts at the height of its powers when it legislates to regulate the concerns at which the VRA is aimed: racial discrimination, infringement of fundamental rights, and elections. When Congress exercises its powers at the intersection of these three concerns—as it did here—this Court should defer to Congress’s considered judgment.” Justice Kagan brought this up in an exchange with Shelby County’s lawyer, Bert Rein: JUSTICE KAGAN: You said the problem [of voting discrimination in the South] has been solved. But who gets to make that judgment really? Is it you, is it the Court, or is it Congress? MR. REIN: Well, it is certainly not me. (Laughter.) JUSTICE SCALIA: That’s a good answer. I was hoping you would say that. MR. REIN: But I think the question is Congress can examine it, Congress makes a record; it is up to the Court to determine whether the problem indeed has been solved and whether the new problem, if there is one. JUSTICE KAGAN: Well, that’s a big, new power that you are giving us, that we have the power now to decide whether racial discrimination has been solved? I did not think that that fell within our bailiwick. It would be a truly radical step for the Court to dismiss the repeated and overwhelming judgment of Congress by striking down Section 5. The disappearance of Section 5 would be a devastating setback for voting rights—akin to the way the Citizens United decision eviscerated campaign finance regulation—and would greenlight the kind of voter suppression attempts that proved so unpopular in 2012. It’s particularly ironic that Shelby County, Alabama, of all places, would bring this challenge to Section 5, given the recent history of discrimination in the county and state. Before local elections in 2008, the city of Calera redrew its city boundaries, eliminating the City Council’s lone majority-black district, represented by Ernest Montgomery since 2004. The city decreased the black votingage population in Montgomery’s district from 71 percent to 30 percent by adding three overwhelmingly white subdivisions while failing to include a large surrounding black neighborhood. A day before the election, the Justice Department objected to the change. Calera could have preserved the majority-black district, the city’s demographer told Washington, but the City Council chose not to. Calera held the election in defiance of Justice Department orders, and Montgomery lost by two votes. The Justice Department negated the election results and, after a year of negotiations, Calera moved from single-member districts to an at-large election system for the City Council. Montgomery was easily elected under the new system, winning the largest number of votes of any candidate, while his opponent from 2008 received the second-fewest. After the two elections, “I realized how important Section 5 is,” Montgomery said. If it hadn’t been for Section 5, there would be no black members of the city council in Calera. “Assuming I accept your premise…that some portions of the South have changed, your county pretty much hasn’t,” Justice Sotomayor told Rein. Mr. Montgomery and a large delegation of voting rights activists from Alabama attended the arguments. “Things have gotten a lot better and the reason it has gotten better is because of legislation like Section 5,” he told me after. “We definitely feel it’s still needed. We don’t claim the playing field has leveled. It’s leveling. Eventually maybe we’ll get to the point where Section 5 is not needed, but we’re not there yet.” - See more at: http://www.thenation.com/blog/173126/ congress-honors-rosa-parks-while-supreme-court-targets-voting-rights-act#sthash.262TZkon.dpuf

vict Casey Anthony of murder in 2011, was sworn in as the area’s top prosecutor in January after beating his former boss in a hotly contested election. David S. Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor now in private practice in Miami, said it would be easier to prove felony hazing charges than it would be to prove manslaughter. “The easy way out is you charge them with felony hazing. That’s what they decided to do initially. You’re still holding someone accountable,” Weinstein said. “Now you have somebody new who comes in, takes a look at the evidence, and for a combination of reasons decides the manslaughter charge is warranted.” Weinstein also said it was not unusual for prosecutors to go ahead with the lesser charge while still gathering evidence and then later upgrade. Two former band members whose cases were resolved last year weren’t among those charged Monday. Brian Jones and Ryan Dean have already been sentenced after pleading no-contest to third-degree felony hazing last year. Jones was sentenced last October to six months of community control, which strictly limits his freedom with measures including frequent check-ins with probation officials. He also was given two years of probation and required to perform 200 hours of commu-

nity service. Dean was sentenced the following month and received four years of probation and 200 hours of community service. Judge Marc Lubet conferenced with all the attorneys involved before Monday’s hearing and said they all agreed that because of a witness list that includes more than 100 people, a June trial date was unlikely. He has set another status hearing in the case for August. Since Champion’s death FAMU has made sweeping changes to fight hazing. The band remains suspended and there still has not been a time announced for its return. The university is still searching to find a new director for the band. FAMU’s board held an emergency meeting last month to discuss the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the Champion family, though there were no final decisions made. Interim FAMU President Larry Robinson said the board was authorized to continue trying for a resolution with the family. The Champions, who live in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, Ga., claim university officials did not take enough action to stop hazing in the famed Marching 100 band before the death of their son. They rejected a previous offer to settle the case for $300,000.

TN’s Human Rights Agency Celebrates Fifty Years The Tennessee Human Rights Commission, The state’s civil rights enforcement agency celebrated its first 50 years Thursday while disagreeing with the U.S. Supreme Court’s arguments about a key provision of the Voting Rights Act. The Tennessee Human Rights Commission was established in 1963, and citizens gathered at the Tennessee State Museum remininese about its first halfcentury and to honor some of Nashville’s most prominent human rights advocates. The Commission is an independent state agency responsible for enforcing the Tennessee Human Rights Act and the Tennessee Disability Act which prohibit discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodation on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, sex, disability, familial status (housing only) and age (40 and over in employment). The Commission is also responsible for coordinating the State of Tennessee’s compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination based on race, color and national origin by State agencies receiving federal financial assistance. The Commission has cooperative agreements with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). These agreements allow the federal and state agencies to coordinate their investigations and avoid duplication of efforts in seeking to end discrimination. • Linda T. Wynn, a noted historian at Fisk University, was the featured speaker and spoke to the audience about the Emancipation Proclamation, the Civil War and the current civil rights movement. Wynn concluded her remarks by addressing the Supreme Court’s deliberations Wednesday on the Voting Rights Act, which Congress passed in 1965. Justice Antonin Scalia said the law is now a “perpetuation of racial entitlement.” Wynn sharply sharpely disagreed. “Justice Scalia, voting is not an entitlement,” she said. “It is the foundation of

everything America stands for.” She said The 15th Amendment of the Constitution should be a concern for all Americans. Professor Wynn challenged the audience to “keep up the fight, for it appears that we’re going to be in for a lot of new battles.” The commission honored 10 individuals and organizations: • George Barrett, a Nashville civil rights lawyer who has represented student protesters, unions and plaintiffs who sued to desegregate the state’s public higher education system. • Waverly Crenshaw, a Nashville attorney who has devoted much of his time to human rights, diversity and nondiscrimination education. • Jane Eskind, the first woman elected to statewide office in Tennessee (as a

There are certain scenes that a character can say in the book but would not work in the film because it would just drag and slow the movie down. There are many elements in the book that are just not visual. For example, how do visually translate religious conversion or sensibility to the screen in a way that conveys why the character is doing this and how he feels about this? But on the other hand, there are many things that can be done in a film that always translate well when you’re doing prose. Each entity has its own strength and weaknesses.

Y.

I also got the chance to see the huge set they used in Taiwan where they built the water tank.” TRIBUNE: Are you one of those authors that goes back to read your finished work again after it’s released to the public? Y. MARTEL: “Never. Right now I’m so focused on my next novel, which will be a three-part story that takes place in Northern Portugal.

I haven’t read Life of Pi from cover to cover since it first came out, which is about 10 years ago now. In fact, there are times when I’ve forgotten what’s in my own book.

Area Family Stars in Preachers’s Daughters on Lifetime By Janice Malone

Nashville isn’t the only city that’s been bitten by the reality TV show bug, Viewers across America will now get a chance to see what life is like for a local family who lives in nearby Spring Hill, TN. Victoria Koloff, 16-year-old daughter Kolby Koloff, and three older daughters, are part of the cast members for the new upcoming docu-series reality show Preachers’ Daughters. The show will be premiering on the Lifetime Television Network, Tuesday, March 12 at 9pm (local time). Produced by Thinkfactory Media (multiple Golden Globe® Award and Emmy®-nominated miniseries Hatfields & McCoys and family docu-soap Gene Simmons Family Jewels), Preachers’ Daughters reveals a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors’ daughters as they balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents’ strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith. What happens will change these families forever, and surprise viewers with this unvarnished peek into their lives and the universal issues all households with teenagers face daily.

What makes the Kolby family even more entertaining is that Victoria’s now ex-husband is former WWE professional wrestler Nikita Koloff – The Russian Nightmare! For the last several years he’s been a traveling evangelist who often gives sermons to parishioners, while still being a dad. It’s hard to believe Nikita Koloff is now a minister! “Yes, he’s a minister,” says Victoria Koloff about her former husband, who lives in the North Carolina area. “Since the promos about the TV show have been airing, I’ve had so many people tell me they’re long time wrestling fans and used to love the Nikita Koloff character. But many admitted they’re not used to watching Lifetime but will watch the Preachers’ Daughters show because they want to see Nikita since he’s now a preacher. I have a feel-

ing a lot of wrestling fans will be tuning in.” says Victoria, who’s the executive director of The Pregnancy Centers of Middle Tennessee in both Spring Hill and Columbia, TN. In addition, Victoria is a born-again Christian with her own faith based radio show. She also travels throughout the country speaking/teaching Christian values and faith to audiences. Kolby Koloff is the 16-year-old baby in the family. She often looks to her three older sisters, Tervyn, Tawni and Kendra for advice, especially when their parents seem to be a little too strict. “Being a pastor’s daughter is sometimes difficult, “admits Kolby, as her mom is listening on the other line. “I wouldn’t say that I get made fun of at school or anything, but people often look at me and expect a higher standard than they would from another teen girl my age.” Preachers’ Daughters will also feature two other pastors and their families: The Colemans of Joliet, Illinois and The Perrys of Oceano, California. The show’s behind-the-altar look at what happens at home after the sermon ends, is what the producers are counting on that will hopefully draw viewers to the new show. According to Victoria Koloff, the show

will give America a realistic look at what the life of a Christian is all about. She says,”There’s nothing scripted about this show. We don’t hold much back and I think viewers will relate to that when they see that we pick up our cross daily and deal with family problems just like other families out here do.” The new program will be addressing such bold topics as sex and abstinence, and being a christian; and there’s even an episode where one of the Koloff daughters wants to get a tattoo against the will of her parents. Which daughter and does she get the tattoo? Viewers will have to tune in to find out. Victoria and Kolby promises the show will offer plenty of humorous moments, without sounding too preachy, so to speak. “I probably get called ’Miss Hollywood’ 10 times a day at school!” says Kolby with a laugh. It’s embarrassing because I’m not a person who likes a lot of attention.” Even though Kolby may not want the attention, it goes with the territory. In just a few more days, (March 12th), the whole world will get to see what life is really like inside of the Koloff home after the sermons have ended and the “good book” has been closed.

KAM’S KOLUMN “Jack the Giant Slayer”

TERRI’S REVIEW “All I Did Was Shoot My Man”

Terri Schlichenmeyer

Review by Terri Schlichenmeyer Kam Williams

By Kam Williams

Bryan Singer has consistently entertained audiences between a bold visual style and richly drawn characters ever since his making a noteworthy feature film debut in 1993 with the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize-winner “Public Access.” He gained widespread attention a couple years later with the crime thriller “The Usual Suspects” which won Academy Awards for Kevin Spacey (Best Supporting Actor) and Christopher McQuarrie (Best Original Screenplay). Most recently, Bryan made the World War II drama “Valkyrie,” starring Tom Cruise. And he is currently in production directing “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which reunites numerous cast members from the franchise’s previous films. For television, Singer directed the pilot and was executive producer on the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning series “House,” starring Hugh Laurie. He also produced the ABC series “Dirty Sexy Money” and the HBO documentary “Vito,” about author and 1980s AIDS activist Vito Russo. Bryan has directed and/or produced a myriad of other projects through his Bad Hat Harry Productions, a motion picture and television production company formed in 1994. To date, his projects have grossed over two billion dollars worldwide. Here, he talks about his latest film, “Jack the Giant Slayer,” a big screen version of the classic fairytale. Kam Williams: What interested you in making Jack the Giant Slayer? Brian Singer: At the time, there were no fairytale movies in development that I was aware of, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to do something different that I hadn’t seen before and that I hadn’t done before. A product existed called Jack the Giant Killer, which I kind of rewrote from scratch with Chris McQuarrie and Dan Studney, who are also Jersey kids. So, it began with that and my desire to see beanstalks and giants in a way they’ve never been portrayed before. KW: I was familiar with Jack and the Beanstalk, but I don’t remember reading Jack the Giant Killer as a child. BS: Jack the Giant Killer was from the 1700’s, and kind of an Arthurian character who went around slaying giants and sending their heads back to King Arthur. This film takes some inspiration from both fairytales but, frankly, it’s its own original story. KW: So you shot some of the film in New

Bryan Singer, wins awards for Best Director and Best Fantasy Film for Superman Returns

Zealand? BS: Only those scenes where the parents were reading to the children. Those scenes also established who Jack and Isabelle were meant to be had his father and her mother not died. Now, Jack is fatherless and trapped on the farm, while Isabelle is motherless and trapped in a castle by an overprotective father who is afraid of losing the only other woman in his life. So, that opening tableau sort of sets the characters up in a fun way, and we shot it in New Zealand over a couple days. The rest of the movie was completely shot in London. KW: Is there a message you want people to take away from the film? BS: No, I don’t think of it as that kind of film. It’s just supposed be entertaining. Awards season is over, so it’s time for an adventure. KW: Documentary filmmaker Kevin Williams says: I’m from Trenton and almost everyone I meet from Princeton says they know you or your mom. His question is, how do you fight off complacency, and do you look at scripts any differently today versus earlier in your career? BS: Well, early in my career, I really wasn’t look at scripts. I was developing them from scratch. Now, I look at them for inspiration but, ultimately, I’m driven to a kind of movie I want to make, knowing that eventually I’m going to bring aboard my friends, some of whom I grew up with, like Chris, and others whom I met later in life, like Dan. So, initially, I’m just looking for an idea, for a kernel of a story. KW: Editor/Legist Patricia Turnier asks: Is there a new genre of film that you would like to tackle for the first time? BS: Yes, horror. Something supernatural. I always enjoy a good horror film, and there hasn’t been a great horror film like The Exorcist for awhile. KW: Patricia also asks: What director did you admire the most growing up? BS: Steven Spielberg. KW: The bookworm Troy Johnson question: What was the last book you read? BS: I’ve been reading a lot of David Sedaris KW: If you could have one wish instantly granted, what would that be for? BS: Eternal good health.

The dirty glasses haven’t quite made it to the kitchen yet. They’re still communing with last weeks’ newspaper in the living room, while dust bunnies dance with cookie crumbs strewn on the carpet. Forgotten toys lie everywhere and your sweatshirt is right where you left it, balled up as a pillow on the sofa. So you made a mess. It’s called “living,” you’re not ashamed, and you’ll deal with it later. But in the novel “All I Did Was Shoot My Man” by Walter Mosley, another mess needs cleaning up soon or somebody dies. Zella Grisham always said that she was innocent. Yes, it was her storage unit that had held some of the $58 million stolen from a capital holding firm nine years ago. Yes, she’d shot her boyfriend three times for cheating on her with her best friend, but the heist? No, Zella always claimed she didn’t have anything to do with that. Leonard T. McGill believed her. He believed her because it was he who set her up to take the fall for grand larceny. It was a scam that McGill had pulled before without problem but this time, it looked like there was trouble. With Zella out of prison, there were people who wanted to talk with her, a lot of people who figured that she knew where the rest of the cash was. They figured McGill did, too, because he was suddenly involved with

Zella and he was not known for being squeaky-clean. What they didn’t know – and neither did Zella – was that McGill was also the one who sprung her from prison. But in the midst of sorting out the mess, and while trying to keep Zella protected from thugs, McGill’s biggest nemesis warned him that he wasn’t safe. Three other men suspected of planning the heist were all dead, and it appeared that someone wanted McGill to join them. That notion was underscored when two professional gunmen broke into his house in the middle of the night with assassination on their minds. Through the years, Leonid McGill had annoyed a lot of people in New York City. Sure, he had enemies. But this time, he wasn’t sure who the enemy was. There’s something about a Leonid McGill mystery that I truly do love. Maybe it’s that author Walter Mosley strongly reminds his readers of trench coats, blackand-white movies, rainy streets, and Maltese falcons, even though this book is set in modern-day New York. Or maybe it’s that his main character is smart, wise, and cooler than a polar bear’s nose.

Bleak Outlook in Affirmative Action Debate is Price of Political Weakness

Ronald W. Weathersby

By Ronald W. Weathersby

The national anti-affirmative action bandwagon has stopped in Tennessee and may be taking hold in the state Legislature. With the support of a lobbying group incongruously named the ‘American Civil Rights Institute’ (ACRI), State Senator Jim Summerville (R-Dickson) has introduced legislation that will eliminate affirmative action initiatives across the state. The so-called “Civil Rights Initiative of 2013” is indicative of the hostile climate toward minorities in the state which has elected a Republican super majority in both houses of the state legislature and a seemingly rubber stamp Republican governor. The push is part of a national movement according to Anjali Thakur-Mittal, director of the Washington, D.C.-based Americans for a Fair Chance Project who says that the most successful anti-affirmative action campaigns have come as a result of ballot initiatives and not legislation. Thakur-Mittal joined Gloria Jean Sweet-Love, president of the Tennessee State Conference of the NAACP, Patricia Stokes, president and CEO of the Urban League of Middle Tennessee, State Representative Brenda Gilmore (DNashville) and several other leaders from across the state to plan a strategy to stop the legislation. Although the proposal has stalled in the Senate because it could run afoul of federal law and possibly cost the state funding, the measure is seen as a shot across the bow of civil rights and diversity proponents in the Tennessee. “This is serious business and the bills in the state legislature are alarming,” Sweet-Love told listeners on the conference call. “We are not a post racial society and affirmative action is still needed.” Based in Sacramento, California, ACRI was established by Ward Connerly after California’s Proposition 209 was passed in 1996. Connerly, who personally benefitted from affirmative action programs, has according to his Website continued a “sustained national effort toward the elimination of racial and gender preferences.” Since 1996 affirmative action programs, especially in higher education have been in legal retreat across the country. Courts have struck down affirmative action programs across the country and where the programs have been upheld by court action the decisions

have been rendered moot by voters. Tennessee’s far right wing Republicans have taken over the state legislature and have introduced and passed several controversial measures including a bill that would make it much harder to rename or move memorials to the state’s Confederate Civil War heroes. The bill requires state and local governments that want to move or rename a memorial to apply first to the Tennessee Historical Commission for a waiver. At the same time they rejected an amendment to protect monuments to the Civil Rights Movement. Additionally, if Republicans have their way women in Tennessee soon may have to get an ultrasound before having an abortion. Another bill would give gun owners in Tennessee the right to carry their weapons in their vehicles anywhere they want -- including school and workplace parking lots could be passed soon. Tennessee Republican Rep. Stacey Campfield’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill would prohibit classroom discussion of anything other than natural reproduction in Tennessee schools. And, fed up with the media making fun of them, Republicans say it’s time to yank away a little state cash from Tennessee’s newspaper industry. The proposed legislation would require the Transportation Department to advertise bids for contracts by publishing notices on the department’s website instead of in newspapers around the state. That’ll cost newspapers $250,000 a year. These proposed laws like the anti-affirmative action bill are a direct result of Tennesseans relinquishing their right to govern by not voting and allowing the right wing takeover of state government. Whether we are too busy, apathetic or have forfeited our rights, too many African Americans in Tennessee stand on the sidelines and allow others to make critical decisions for us and for that we are now paying the price. It is not good public policy to stand around and gripe about the workings of the conservative right. It is certainly not in the best interest of working class and poor people to be in the position to merely react to the overt racism, sexism, homophobism or classism on display in the state’s capitol. It is time for African Americans to become full-time players in the state’s political affairs. Blacks, young people, the poor and others in Tennessee should learn from this experience. Either we get involved and elect individuals who share our values or we will continue to see our rights and the laws which protect our status eroded away by the far right. It’s time for us to stop whining and take action. In actuality it is not their fault. It’s ours.

From Callousness to Compassion: Forgiveness is Still a Real Option

Message by Rev. Jason Curry of Fisk Memorial Chapel tament, compassion is often used to describe the behavior of Jesus Christ. For example, in reference to a man who had the disease of leprosy, Mark 1:41 states: “And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.” In the Old Testament, King David asked the Lord to have compassion on him because of a sinful act concerning women named Bathsheba. In Psalm 51:1, David prays: “Have Rev. Jason Curry, Ph.D. mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according The word compassion is used to your great compassion blot out frequently in the New Testament, my transgressions.” Compassion and there are even more referenc- is love, and it is an attribute or es to the term compassion in the a “fixed and unmovable” qualOld Testament. In the New Tes- ity of God. God will not always

approve of our thoughts and actions; however, God will always show compassion and love toward us (Romans 8:38-39). God demonstrated compassion for humanity (see John 3:16), and Jesus demonstrated compassion for the people of his day; therefore, as followers of Jesus Christ, it is incumbent on us to demonstrate compassion in our daily lives. As a person who provides pastoral counseling to individuals, couples and families, I’ve arrived at the conclusion that some people, including those that love the Lord, have difficulty showing compassion to others because they have been physically, emotionally, psychologically “injured” by people. People

who were once compassionate and boastful of the love of the Lord in their lives, have, in some instances, become callous, indifferent and dismissive or hateful toward other people. Even when the idea or ideal of compassion is mentioned, the reality of human experience and human nature stifles the loving spirit that God has endowed them with. I’ve learned from experience that one of the most effective strategies for moving from callousness to compassion concerns the idea and reality of forgiveness. Forgiving others, forgiving ourselves (for the mistakes that we’ve made) and asking God for forgiveness for the sins that we have committed helps to free us

from the stifling bonds of selfloathing, hating others and blaming God for the circumstances that have affected our lives. Since forgiveness is a mandate from God (Mark 11:26), embracing the idea and reality of forgiveness put us in a right relationship with God and helps to facilitate the necessary, healing process. We have wounded ourselves and others. We have also been wounded by others. Psalm 147:3 reminds us that God “heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Forgiveness for ourselves and others is always a real option, so let us embrace this option as we strive to become closer to God.

The Sphere of God

Elder “X” Lawson

God exist outside time and space. In the “Sphere” of God which is God’s domain, time does not exist. God created time for us, time for us to learn, time for us to mature, time for us to discover, and time for us to love. In the Sphere of God, God see’s our past, present and our future. We have access to the Sphere of God through fasting and prayer. Fasting helps us bring our flesh into submission to our spirit and prayer allows us to talk to God. The mental and physical consecration of one’s self for the purpose of communion with God in his Sphere can only be accessed with a pure heart. Romans 8:27,”And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the

will of God.” In other words, you can’t fool God, God knows the hearts and minds of all people so fasting requires the kind of dedication that builds up one’s spirit in an area for one, if one is truly seeking to hear from and speak with the Lord. The Lord has given us a method that allows us to develop and cultivate purity of heart. It’s out of a pure heart God can trust us with his revelations and his desires for your life as well as tap into the supernatural. What we call supernatural is really normalcy for those who are able to tap into the sphere of God. Jesus said in Mark 16:17-18, “17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” If you are constantly tapping into the sphere of God seeing these signs should never surprise you and by tapping into the sphere of God, God will give you power as you “pursue perfection that will help you impact an imperfect

world.” If you are not witnessing the signs as Jesus described it’s not because Jesus was only speaking to those disciples at that time, it’s because the sphere of God is not being tapped for this kind of anointing. Lord right now in the name Jesus Christ we ask all those who are not saved to accept your son Jesus Christ as savior, we ask those who are desirous of being filled with your Holy Spirit to be filled right now upon the purity of their heart and the consecration of tapping into your Sphere oh Lord. Lord you are real and we thank you for the miracles that are taking place in the lives of your people, who are seeking more of you, we thank you, we praise you and we glorify your name! May we all continue to seek your face and feel your presence Lord! In Jesus name, amen.

Project Return to Open Clothing Giveaway NASHVILLE, TN — Project Return, Inc., a nonprofit organization in Nashville, announces the opening of Better Suited on March 9th at nine o’clock. Sponsored by Men’s Wearhouse and hosted by the Ray of Hope Community Church, Project Return’s Better Suited will provide clients — persons previously convicted of felonies and now returning to the community — with clothing suitable for interviews and other important civic occasions, after release from prison. The opening of Better Suited supports Project Return’s provision of wraparound services that increase the chances of a successful reentry, thereby reducing the rate of recidivism for its clients. Gaining and keeping employment is the essential component of a successful return to the community after incarceration. The process of finding work generally requires a professional appearance and confidence; both of which can be accomplished thru the offerings of Better Suited. Men’s Wearhouse holds annual suit drives and donates to Project Return the proceeds. Volunteers and congregants of Ray of

Hope Community Church will operate the program, assisting clients weekly with selection of clothing. According to Bettie Kirkland, Executive Director of Project Return: In many cases, when folks get out of prison, they stand at a fork in the road, and the clearer path may be the wrong one. Project Return situates itself at thatfork, giving ex-offenders the tools and the opportunities to get on the right path — toward employment, stability, and productivity. With help from Men’s Wearhouse, their access to like-new clothing is a great boost to their return to our community. Clothes don’t make the man, but they do make him better able — ‘better suited’ — to move forward with confidence. This program is a great example of collaboration between a nonprofit agency, a community institution, and a local business, to help those in need and make our community a better place. About Project Return In Davidson County, Project Return has, since 1979, been addressing the employment challenges and other difficul-

ties faced by persons returning to our community with criminal backgrounds. Through job readiness training; assistance with re-acquiring ID documentation; the provision of emergency financial assistance, food, and clothing; the disbursement of bus passes; child support services; alcohol and drug counseling; referrals for housing and medical care; and longer term case management, Project Return prepares the formerly incarcerated for a successful reentry that includes — the most important critical prediction of success — finding and keeping a job. In 2013, Project Return will begin a Transitional Employment Program to employ recently incarcerated individuals through contracted work with local business in Nashville. The participation in this program by a typically unemployable population will prepare them for gaining permanent employment with vocational and soft skills, a recent work history, and a reference base. About Ray of Hope Community Church Located at 901 Meridian Street, Nash-

ville, Ray of Hope Community Church has a vision of empowerment for individuals and families, and dedicates itself to outreach in service of the community.

Lipscomb Student Producers Receive Award

NASHVILLE, TN — Five Lipscomb University student producers have been awarded a national Gracie Award for Outstanding Public Service Announcement (PSA). The spot titled, “Guess Who?,” is one of five in a series of videos created by Lipscomb students on behalf of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media in partnership with the Independent Television Service (ITVS) and ITVS’ Women and Girls Lead campaign. The student-produced video competed against professional local, online and public media nationwide to earn one of 54 Gracies in that category. The Gracies are given annually by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWM). It was the only winner in the PSA category. “In a year with a record-setting number of entries, your submission displayed superior quality in writing, production and programming,” wrote alliance officials in the congratulations letter. The spot titled, “Guess Who? The Racecar Driver and the Pilot,” highlights two women in non-stereotypical careers usually associated with men: an airline pilot and a race car driver. The spot aired on Nashville Public Television (NPT) in October 2012 and is scheduled to be aired nationally in April. Guess Who is an education program created by the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media designed to

teach children age 6-9 through the use of video and education curriculum how to challenge gender stereotypes. Lipscomb University was selected along with student producers at Boston University, the University of Southern California, Webster University, and Columbia College to each create a children’s educational program to be aired nationwide as part of ITVS’ Women and Girls Lead campaign, a public media campaign designed to celebrate, educate and activate women, girls and their allies across the globe to address the challenges of the 21st century. For 60 years, AWM has served as the voice and resource for women in the media, and has been a leader in celebrating and honoring programming created for women, by women and about women for more than three decades. The Gracies work to encourage the realistic and faceted portrayal of women in entertainment, commercials, news, features and other programs. The video was created under the advisement of NPT and was produced by Lipscomb communications students: Jason Michael Fox, junior from Nashville; Kathryn McKinley, senior from McMinnville; Kyrsten Turner, junior from Lawrenceville, Ga.; Marlee Vogel, junior from Kingsport; and Brynn Watkins, junior from Freeburg, Ill. In addition to traveling to Atlanta and Bowling Green, Ky., to film their two role models, the students used stop-

motion animation in the video and conducted in-studio interviews with second-graders. The kids’ comments and surprised reactions reinforced today’s conventional wisdom that pilots and race car drivers are all men. “The Gracie Award is an overwhelming testament to the hard work and diligence these students displayed in creating the ‘Guess Who?’ video,” said Jimmy McCollum, acting chair of the Lipscomb communication and journalism department. “The project required hundreds of hours of shooting and editing and provided a rare, holistic experience for our communication students. They had a hand in everything from meeting with clients, developing the concept, shooting video in-studio and on-site, and editing.” The “Guess Who?” video premiered in May 2012 for a local audience when Academy Award®-winning actor and Institute Founder Geena Davis, along with the Institute’s Executive Director Madeline Di Nonno, visited the Lipscomb campus as part of a fundraising luncheon held by the Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership. The video’s producers will be honored at the June 26 Gracie Awards Luncheon at the New York Hilton Hotel in New York City.

Team Building - Secret to Fundraising Success

Part two of a two-part series

It’s all about leadership and team building. You’ve heard the refrain, but what does it mean? In terms of nonprofit fundraising there can be no greater mandate than leadership and teamwork. Scarce funding for staff positions, stiff competition for the philanthropic dollar, and an abundance of wishful thinking leaves nonprofits at risk of not meeting their fundraising goals. Building and supporting a volunteer-led fundraising team is one way out of the vicious cycle imperiling too many organizations. Your fundraising team should be comprised of leaders who are committed to ensuring your nonprofit has the money and resources it needs to deliver on its mission. It should include your volunteers, staff, executive leadership and board members. All members should work from a fundraising plan. You can have a simple plan or a complex plan. The most important thing is to work from a plan with agreed upon financial goals, timeframes, and defined roles and responsibilities. For a team to function, everyone has to know their role, and be qualified to fill it. Invite people to join your leadership team based on their understanding of what you are trying to achieve and how well they can help implement your plan. Your team will set the tone, policy, and direction of your fundraising and monitor its progress. The committee should be led by a fundraising chair or co-chairs. These volunteers should be supported by the institution’s chief development officer and executive director. If you don’t have a fundraising chair, you need one. Take the time

to review your fundraising plan, identify who could best help you meet your goals, and then find the right person to talk with your potential chair, inviting him to provide leadership. Be sure to show him your fundraising plan: people are more likely to say yes when they see you have a plan in place to meet your goal. Other potential members for this committee include board members, current major donors, community and business leaders, key stakeholders, your finance director, executive director, development director and program staff. Your fundraising chairs should convene and lead your monthly meetings. Team members should report on specific actions they have taken, solicitations, proposal submissions, and new potential donors and funders who have been identified. Staff should provide reports showing progress against goal, number of gifts received, average size of gift, largest gift, and specific information that allows the team to make proactive fundraising management decisions. Team meetings shine a light on what people are doing and not doing. It holds board members, staff and volunteers accountable to each other. It takes away excuses and when things are going well it creates an excitement and momentum that is contagious. Raising money is too important to go alone. Build and nurture your team. Excerpted from “Prerequisites for Fundraising Success” a new book from Mel and Pearl Shaw, available from Amazon.com. They provide fundraising counsel to nonprofits.

to be America for all Americans,” said Benjamin Todd Jealous, President & CEO of the NAACP. “While much has changed since 1965, the record is clear that discriminatory election practices still exist in counties like Shelby County and states like Alabama. “Justice Scalia should refrain from speculating on the thoughts and motivations of the Congress and defer to the judgment of the overwhelming bipartisan majority that voted for reauthorization in 2006.” During the hearing Justice Antonin Scalia noted that the overwhelmingly bipartisan reauthorizations of the Voting Rights Act in the past four decades was “very likely attributable, to a phenomenon that is called ‘perpetuation of racial entitlement’.” He continued, “whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get out of them through the normal political processes.” In 2006, compelled by 15,000 pages of evidence and testimony of discrimination, the 109th Congress extended Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act for

35 years. The reauthorization followed recent racially-motivated attacks on democracy by multiple jurisdictions. One notorious example was Kilmichael, Mississippi where the all-white board of alderman and white mayor cancelled an election after it became clear that blacks had become a majority of their city’s electorate. In 2006, Ken Mehlman, the National Chairman of the Republican Party, joined his Democratic colleague in calling for reauthorization and referred to the Voting Rights Act as “one of the great moral achievements of the 20th Century.” The NAACP, through its Alabama State Conference, is an intervener in Shelby County v. Holder and the Texas, South Carolina and Florida State Conferences have filed an amicus brief in support of Section 5. In addition to defending the Voting Rights Act at the Supreme Court, NAACP leaders will work with state and local officials to pass laws to expand voting rights, including same day registration/voting, extended early voting, and restoring voting rights for the formerly incarcerated.

UT Band to Perform for the Prestigious American Bandmasters Association

KNOXVILLE- The University of Tennessee Wind Ensemble, UTs top concert band, is one of only four bands in the United States invited to perform  in Tampa, Florida, March 6th through 8th for the American Bandmasters Association, an organization who recognizes outstanding  university, middle school, and high school band directors.  “This is a great honor,” says Dr. Gary Sousa, UT Director of Bands. “The American Bandmasters Association is the most prestigious band association in the world.” Under the direction of Sousa, UT’s Wind Ensemble will share this honor with Florida State University, University of Georgia, and the U.S. Coast Guard Band.   “One of the great traditions of the  American Bandmasters Association is to have your band guest-conducted by outstanding American conductors and composers,” says UT Band Director Dr. Gary Sousa.  “Our Wind Ensemble will be conducted by six different members of the

The University of Tennessee Wind Ensemble

organization,” Sousa explains. “The ABA membership list is a Who’s Who of band directors in the United States.”  UT’s six guest-conductors will include Dr. Frank Tracz, Director of Bands at Kansas State, Dr. Bill Brent, Director of

Bands at Northwestern State University, Mr. Joseph Hermann, Director of Bands at Tennessee Tech University, Dr. Dana Wilson, Composer at Ithaca College, Dr. Timothy Rhea, Director of Bands at Texas A&M University, and Colonel John

Belfast’s Lessons Learned From the Peaceful Opposition to Inequality in Nashville

Bimpe Archer, Journalist

The parallels between Belfast and its twin city Nashville go further than a shared taste in country music. However, while Northern Ireland’s attempts to sustain a civil rights campaign in the 1960s descended into murderous violence, peaceful protest prevailed in the Tennessee capital. Bimpe Archer travelled there to hear more.

Martin Luther King visited Nashville in April 1960. The civil rights icon told activists gathered for a rally at Fisk, the city’s African American university: “I came to Nashville not to bring inspiration, but to gain inspiration from the great movement that has taken place in this community.” King was not understating the remarkable victory won there. Wandering along the tourist trap that is downtown Broadway in the chilly winter sun, past cheery honky-tonk bars and store fronts filled with intricately tooled leather cowboy boots, it seems inconceivable that this is also the location of one of the most successful civil rights movements of modern times. Nashville was not simply a divided city, as Belfast is often referred to. Like most of the American south, for decades it was a deeply segregated one. The Supreme Court-protected doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ and ‘Jim Crow’ laws allowed racial discrimination to flourish, with black Americans relegated to under-funded schools and with few prospects for skilled work. Black customers were allowed to buy food in restaurants but were not allowed to consume it on the premises, spending their precious lunch hours eating on curbsides outside, while their white neighbors sat in side at tables. By 1960, however, a famous victory had been won – a group of students had prompted the white mayor of the city to acknowledge: “It is wrong and immortal to discriminate.” Within a month, downtown restaurants began serving black customers at their counters for the first time. This aspect of Nashville history is virtually unknown back in Belfast, the city with which it is twinned. The version which has gained the most traction over the years is built around the Grand Ole Opry and country music superstars whose antecedents left Ireland to create a Protestant Bible Belt in the New World. Those links are acknowledged with an annual Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival and the remarkably strong Irish country music circuit. Despite Northern Ireland’s overwhelmingly white population, its people have often also borrowed rhetoric from the African American civil rights struggle. However, while the north’s attempts to mount a civil rights campaign quickly descended into more than three decades of murderous violence, the Nashville movement stuck steadfastly to exclusively peaceful means. This was no mean feat in the face of racial hatred and violent bigotry. To this day Diane Nash, one of the most respected student leaders of the movement in Nashville, is amazed that she found the strength to sustain the harrowing fight. Nash was raised in a middle-class Catholic family in Chicago and attended Howard University before transferring to Nashville’s Fisk University in autumn 1959. Shocked by the extent of segregation she encountered in the south, she was a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in April 1960 And it was she who demanded of Mayor Ben West whether it was morally right to discriminate. “I really don’t know where the courage came from,” she says now. “I would go back to Chicago during the summers and think about some of the things I had done in the south and think: ‘That was really dangerous. I’m not going to do that any more’. “When the time came the movement had a way of bring out things in me that I didn’t even know were there, such as courage.” She said the bigger the injustice, the greater our ability to resist. “Segregation was just so humiliating,” Ms. Nash said. “Black people had had it up to here [she gestures above her head] and were willing to go to great lengths. “It was a humiliating experience. You went downtown around the lunch hour and blacks who worked in the downtown area would be sitting on the kerbs eating their lunch that they had either bought from the counters or taken from home. “I felt not only humiliated but also that I was agreeing I was not good enough to use the front door or sit in the restaurant.” For Rosetta Miller-Perry, the owner of one of two Nashville’s black newspaper (Nashville Pride), the Tennessee Tribune, who joined Nash in counter sit-ins, her dawning awareness of discrimination came in the supposedly liberal north. “When I was a teenager in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, I lived in a mixed community, although it was predominately white,” she said. “My white girlfriends were able to obtain jobs as clerks, typists or work in the five and dime store and when I tried to get a job I wasn’t hired because I was black. “This was the first time I became aware that my white girlfriends were treated in a different manner than I. While they worked at the five and dime store I worked for a judge’s family washing their dinner dishes for fifty cents a night even though there daughter was my classmate and girlfriend. During this period I knew how slaves must have felt because when the judge’s wife wanted more bread she would ring the bell one time and for extra butter she would ring the bell twice and I would bring it in. This was the most humiliating aspect in my life as a teenager.” “I had the same level of education, had the same small family background, attended the same church. At a young age I didn’t know there was such a thing as a movement in my local town. That’s when I decided I wanted to go when I finished school.” Ms. Miller-Perry ended up in Nashville at Tennessee State University because “colleges were cheaper” in the South and she wanted to live with black people, although her parents, former Southerners, opposed her move.

However, arguably there would not have been a movement to join without James (Jim) Lawson. Lawson was an associate of Mr. Martin Luther King who shared his commitment to Gandhi’s principles of non-violent resistance. It was King who urged Mr. Lawson to come south and “come now – we don’t have anyone like you down there”. He duly moved to Nashville and enrolled at the Divinity School of Vanderbilt University where he began conducting non-violence training workshops for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. While in Nashville, Mr. Lawson met and mentored a number of young students at Vanderbilt, Fisk University and other colleges in the tactics of non-violent direct action. This discipline would prove crucial in keeping the movement peaceful in the face of the beatings, deliberate humiliations, imprisonments and even bomb attacks that were to follow. “Courage for me came from the students and the older people who were working on the movement,” Mr. Nash said. “Jim taught us that if one person was getting seriously beaten and seemed to be singled out, one way [was for] us to put our body between him or her and the person who was inflicting the beating. “And to be part of a group that was willing to put my body between him and harm, and to be part of a group that was willing to put their body between my body and harm – that was a powerful thing.” Those like Ernest ‘Rip’ Patton who grew up in Nashville were inspired by these newcomers from the north, willing to put their safety on the line to change his city. “I was accustomed to segregation,”

he said, almost unable to believe himself from the vantage point today of a USA with an African-American president now in his second term. “When Jim came to town to teach things about non-violence I wanted to be part of that. “I knew there were a lot of out-of- state students that took part in the movement and I thought: ‘Well, this is my home’ and I wanted to clean up my own house.” He took as his inspiration Romans 12:1-2: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” “All of my life up to this point I had conformed to segregation,” Mr. Patton said. “This man, Jim, renewed my mind and I’m still renewing my mind.” Now in his ninth decade, Mr. Lawson remains a quietly commanding figure, with a shock of white hair, wire-rimmed spectacles and a gentle but resonant voice. He was expelled from Vanderbilt as a result of his activities – now a source of deep embarrassment to the university. During the 2006 graduation ceremony it formally apologized and he is now a faculty member. He retains a keen interest in civil rights across the world. Northern Ireland, he said solemnly, still has further to go on its journey when it comes to ethnic minorities. In many ways Mr. Lawson embodies the heart of the movement, the humanity, the ambition, the wisdom and the spirituality. “I was part of a very wonderful family,” Mr. Lawson said of that period in Nashville. “These are people who I’ve always felt have been in my family for 50 or 60 years now. “How big this story of courage is and we came from different directions. “The courage came from soul and heart and mind and strength which is a description out of the scriptures that I learned which I think is one of the great pieces of wisdom that we in the human race have written. “The movement was very much rooted in Gandhi and in Jesus. Courage, compassion and character come out of the soul of your creation as human beings.” It was a hard-won battle for the idealistic students. Their peaceful actions led to brutal police beatings and harrowing time spent in tough penitentiaries. Mr. Patton recalls he and fellow inmates having food spiced with laxatives in Mississippi’s notorious Parchman prison where the authorities turned off the water. “We would wake up early in the morning with a song,” he said, describing how they would adapt the words of an old spiritual to give them inspiration: “I woke up this morning with my mind stuck on freedom.” At trial, the students were represented by a group of lawyers headed by Z Alexander Looby who escaped a bomb attack on his home. Later that day, nearly 4,000 people marched to City Hall to confront Mayor West about the escalating violence. Confronted by a dignified Diane Nash asking if he believed the lunch counters in Nashville should be desegregated, he agreed that they should. On May 10, six downtown stores began serving black customers at their lunch counters for the first time. There were more battles to be fought and the lot of African Americans in Nashville remains challenging, with poverty and violence rife. And suspicion remains. “It was not a complete victory,” Ms. Miller-Perry says. “It’ll never be.”When you think you’re moving towards victory some white men have another trick and the trick today is gun control. The U.S. has the highest rate of gun ownership and gun homicide in the developed world. More guns, more mass murders, so there is no victory here for any of us.” Bimpe Archer is an Irish journalist who came to The Tennessee Tribune on a fellowship through the International Center for Journalists.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

TSU Wins Regular Season Finale By Ron Wynn

Their defensive intensity still wasn’t at its peak, but the Tennessee State Tigers made key plays in overtime to defeat the Eastern Kentucky Colonels 8581 Saturday night at the Gentry Center. The win enabled TSU to avenge an earlier defeat to EKU, and to defeat both the Colonels and Belmont at home this season. It also helped them tie for the most Gentry Center wins in a year with 11. But despite posting a huge rebounding advantage (42-29), TSU had to rally to avoid their third home defeat. Eastern Kentucky started quickly, and had an early 16-10 lead, thanks to Mike DiNunno’s explosive scoring (nine points in the first nine minutes). The Tigers trailed 35-27 at halftime, with 11 turnovers providing 16 points to the Colonels’ margin. They trailed through a good portion of the second half as well, but did get a quick two point-lead on a layup by Robert Covington with less than nine minutes remaining (8:35). The teams traded baskets down the stretch, with Patrick Miller and Jay Harris making key shots to give TSU a three-point lead with 1:30 left. But an EKU three-pointer tied the score at 71, and each team missed last minute shots, forcing overtime. Kellen Thornton and Miller made consecutive outstanding driving shots to give Tennessee State a 77-74 lead. Then the Ti-

Tennessee State’s Robert Covington had a career high 16 rebounds Saturday night against Eastern Kentucky, helping TSU win its final regular season game 85-81 at the Gentry Center. The victory was the Tigers’ 11th in OVC competition this season, as they tied both their record for most conference wins and also most at home (11-2). They finished 11-5 in the OVC and 17-13 overall.

gers made eight of 10 late free throws to seal the four-point victory. In addition to tying the season record for most home wins, they also matched their biggest victory over OVC opponents (also 11). The Tigers displayed better execution and shot selection, hitting 52.9 percent from the floor (27 of 51), with a superb 71.4 percent mark in the final 20 minutes, making 15 of their final 21 floor shots. Eastern Kentucky came within seven of matching the OVC record for three-point attempts, taking 42 . Thornton was once more the Tigers’ top scorer with 25 points. He made nine of 13 from the floor and added nine rebounds. Covington had a ca-

reer high in rebounds with 16, and also scored 13 points. Patrick Miller continued his recent hot shooting, scoring 19 points and also contributing 11 assists, only one shy of his career high. Jay Harris (11) and Jordan Cyphers (10) were other doublefigure scorers for TSU. The Tigers completed their regular season with a 17-13 record. They’ll face Morehead State Thursday in the quarterfinal round of the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament at the Municipal Auditorium. Their game begins at 6 p.m. The Lady Tigers made a gallant comeback against Eastern Kentucky, erasing a 14-point second half deficit and going on a 34-17 closing run to edge

the Colonels 69-66 in the first game. It also enabled them to have a winning conference season (9-7, 13-14 overall), and was one of their best late rallies this season. The Colonels had held them to 32 percent shooting in the first half while building a 40-29 lead. But the Tigers found plenty of holes in their defense in the second half, hitting 50 percent. They also made 16 of 21 free throws. It was their shooting from the line that helped the Lady Tigers prevail, because they had problems scoring from the field in the game’s final minutes. They went over five minutes (5:20) with a field goal, but their constant pressure forced 25 EKU turnovers. TSU turned them into 31 vital points. They also found a way to put the brakes on EKU’s Marie Carpenter, who had ripped them for 22 points in the first half, making six of seven from three-point territory. The Lady Tigers limited her to only four in the second half, and they also only surrendered one EKU three-pointer over that period. The victory snapped a five-game Lady Tigers’ losing streak against EKU. Their first game in the OVC tournament was Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. against SIUEdwardsville. They defeated TSU 75-69 Feb. 25 in Edwardsville, Ill., the only time the teams met in the regular season. SIU also finished 9-7 in the OVC (15-13 overall).

Georgia Snaps Tennessee’s Winning Streak By Ron Wynn

Tennessee’s late-season push to get an NCAA tournament bid took a serious blow Saturday, as they lost 78-68 to Georgia in Athens. The defeat snapped their six-game winning streak, and also ended a run of Bulldog games where they lost leads late and were narrowly defeated. Though Georgia once again blew a double-digit advantage (this time an 11-point lead), they didn’t allow Tennessee to ever catch or pass them in the second half. The Volunteers also discovered that there was no way they could win when two of their three key players fail to play well. Point guard Trae Golden was last week’s SEC Player of the Week. But against Georgia he never got started. Golden missed his first nine shots, making only one last-minute field goal and scoring a meager four points. Center Jarnell Stokes was double-teamed and blanketed much of the game, managing only seven shots. He hit three of them and added two free throws for eight points, though he did manage 10 rebounds. With Golden and Stokes ineffective, another recent UT scoring option has been Skylar McBee. But he also missed his first seven shots before making one three-pointer near the end. UT’s only consistent scoring threat

On this day in 1987 Mike Tyson defeated James “Bonecrusher” Smith in Las Vegas. Tyson not only defended the World Boxing Council (WBC) title he then held, he added Smth’s World Boxing Association (WBA) crown as well. It was a unanimous decision victory and part of a campaign that ended with an August 1 victory over Tony Tucker for the International Boxing Federation (IBF) title. Tyson became the first heavyweight to own all three major belts at the same time. He later became the first boxer to knock out Larry Holmes in 1988. His boxing prowess was eventually overshadowed by later events, including a conviction for rape and multiple money, marital and tax problems. But from 1985 until being upset by Buster Douglas in 1990, Tyson was the world’s most compelling pro athlete. He finished his career with a record of 50 wins (44 by knockout) and six losses.

10 of 15 from all over the floor. Not only did he lead all scorers, he compiled more points alone than the rest of his teammates (33). “I felt like we didn’t get the shots we were looking for,” UT coach Cuonzo Martin told the Associated Press. “Give Georgia credit defensively, but when we don’t get production from Trae and Jarnell, it’s going to be a long night. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope redeemed himself for his mistakes against Vanderbilt. He led Georgia with 25 points, making seven of eight from the foul line. He also led Georgia’s rebounders with nine, as the Bulldogs had a slight advantage on the boards (38-34). Charles Mann had a poor shooting night from the field (just three of nine) but made 12 of 14 free throws, several of them in the second half. He finished with 18, and also had eight assists. Tennessee’s only other double-figure scorer was Kenny Hall, who made four of five from the floor and contributed 10 points, most in the second half. But Georgia steadily expanded a three-point halftime (25-22) lead, taking advantage of UT’s inability to generate consistent offensive pressure. They also made 22 of 26 from the free throw line. The victory evened the Bulldogs conference record at 8-8 (14-15 overall). UT had one more road game remaining, Tuesday night at Auburn. The 8 p.m. contest was televised on CSS. Their final home and regular season game is Saturday afternoon against Missouri. It begins at 3 p.m. and will air on either ESPN or ESPN 2.

BY RON WYNN Bill Russell Remains Overlooked Giant

There’s been a lot written and said the past few weeks about Michael Jordan reaching his 50th birthday, and what that means in terms of NBA history. There are many who consider him the greatest player ever. The usual measuring stick is his teams won six championships over an eight-year period. Though basketball is still a team game, it’s arguably the one sport where a single great player can have the most inordinate impact (though it can be argued a hockey goalie enjoys similar status). Interestingly, during a recent interview Jordan said he’d take Kobe Bryant over Lebron James, the clincher being championships. Bryant has five, James one, so that settles the issue. Only there’s one person with 11 championships who never gets mentioned in any of these discussions. That’s one William Felton Russell, former center, coach and captain of the Boston Celtics. Russell’s teams won 11 of 13 championships in his career, including a staggering eight in a row. During his career, the Celtics NEVER lost a seventh game to anyone. They did lose once in six to the St. Louis Hawks, and another time in five to the Philadelphia 76ers, but otherwise Russell’s teams won every time. Now he wasn’t in the same ballpark offensively with his rival Wilt Chamberlain, though he was a very underrated passer, and one of the fastest big men in history. Defensively Russell revolutionized the game, proving that “blocked shots could be an offensive weapon.” He both blocked and recovered shots, making the Celtics transition and fastbreak offense pro basketball’s greatest of all time. One season the Celtics averaged 120 points a game. These days most NBA teams never hit that mark at any time during a season. Amazingly, until construction began this season, there wasn’t even a statue built of Russell in Boston. Longtime Boston Globe and Hall of Fame basketball writer Bob Ryan told ESPN radio Sunday he would take Bill Walton if he had to pick any player to win a critical game or series. This from someone who covered the Celtics their entire career. Yet, even he overlooks the greatest winner in team sports history. That kind of myopia is reflective of the overemphasis on individualism perpetuated by the “metrics” crew’s sports takeover. They constantly create bogus stats and use them to support dubious statements or debatable (at best) premises. This focus on so-called “analytics” has turned sports into a numbers universe that devalues hard-to-quantify areas such as heart, hustle and desire. Bill Russell was often quoted saying “the only statistic I care about is the final score.” He was utterly devoted to winning. Whether he had two points or 22, the only thing that counted was seeing the Celtics succeed. When it came to a spectacular combination of fundamentals and flamboyance, there certainly was no one like Michael Jordan. But if I had to pick one player to win a game, it would be Bill Russell.

Preds Road Woes Continue By Ron Wynn

The Predators’ offensive problems continued Saturday night in San Jose, as they suffered another tough loss 2-1 to the San Jose Sharks. Defensively they were much better than the woeful showing against Anaheim in a 5-1 rout, but this time it was their special teams that proved the main problem. The penalty killing unit didn’t do very much of it, as the Sharks scored both their goals on power plays. On the first, which came with 2:13 left in the first period, Paul Gaustad broke his stick on the faceoff. Boyle then smartly ended up using him as a screen on Pekka Rinne, firing a slapshot past him for a 1-0 lead. On the second goal, Rinne got caught looking in the opposite direction on a play where the Sharks’ Joe Pavelski beat the Predators to a loose puck lying near the goal crease. Pavelski got there before Predators’ defenseman Kevin Klein and scored. The Predators averted a shutout on a great play by Gabriel Bourque, the lone time when Nashville’s penalty killing unit did something positive. Bourque took advantage of a puck that hopped over a Sharks’ stick and sped toward the goal. He outmaneuvered one player, then put the puck in the net, making it 2-1 with 5:30 left in regulation. But the Predators’ couldn’t get the tying score in the final moments of regulation. They were 0-2-0 going into Monday’s game at defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles, and well behind record-setting Chicago in the Central Division of the Western Conference. The Predators spent much of Sunday and Monday doing some tinkering with both their regular lines and the power play unit. They remain last in scoring among NHL teams, but seventh in goals allowed, something that’s enabled them to at least get points in many of the games they’ve lost either in overtime or during shootouts. One focus has been on getting more points from centers David Legwand and Mike Fisher, both of whom were quite productive last season, but are both having down years thus far. They’re also looking to such veterans as Martin Erat and captain Shea

Pred’s goalie Pekka Rinne is the main reason that the Predators remain in second place behind the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference’s Central Division.

Weber for improved scoring, though Weber has begun to improve after a frigid start. Interestingly, despite their offensive woes, the Predators remain ahead of division rivals St. Louis, Detroit and Columbus on Monday. Like everyone else, they’ve been lapped by the Chicago Blackhawks’ incredible start. The Blackhawks defeated Detroit Sunday 2-1 in a shootout, and now have 40 points in 22 games. Coach Barry Trotz was quoted over the weekend as doubtful that the Blackhawks are within hailing distance of any team in terms of the regular season title, but other Predators maintained they didn’t think that the Blackhawks had yet reached the uncatchable stage. But as they near the midseason mark for the abbreviated 48-game schedule, the Predators are concerned that they’re not taking full advantage of Rinne’s prowess in goal, or their generally strong defensive abilities. The Predators return to Bridgestone Arena for a Friday/Saturday pairing against the Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild. Both are 7 p.m. starts, and both will be on Fox Tennessee.

That is detected in a type of immune cell known as a CD4 T-cell. After culturing the child’s cells, they found no sign of the virus. Then, the team looked for HIV DNA, which indicates that the virus has integrated itself into the genetic material of the infected person. This test turned up such low levels that it was just above the limit of the test’s ability to detect it.

The third test looked for bits of genetic material known as viral RNA. They only found a single copy of viral RNA in one of the two tests they ran. Because there is no detectible virus in the child’s blood, the team has advised that she not be given antiretroviral therapy, whose goal is to block the virus from replicating in the blood. Instead, she will be monitored closely. There are no samples that can be used by other researchers to confirm the findings, which may lead skeptics to challenge how the doctors know for sure that the child was infected.
