Black Media Slighted as Spending Skyrockets advertising dollars spent,” the report stated. “Advertisers spent $75 billion on television, radio, internet and magazine ads in 2012, with only $2.24 billion of that spent with media focused on Black audiences.” The report said if consumption patterns dictated a company’s advertising budget, then spending with the Black media should be: • 44 percent higher on education and career websites. • 38 percent higher on streaming websites. • 37 percent higher on television – with special emphasis on cable. • 15 percent higher on mobile phone advertising. “The consumer insights this year are some of the most varied yet,” Pearson- McNeil said. “From store brand loyalty, to top watched television networks,

WASHINGTON (NNPA) – Although annual Black spending is projected to rise from its current $1 trillion to $1.3 trillion by 2017, advertisers allot only 3 percent of their $2.2 billion yearly budget to media aimed at Black audiences, a new Nielsen report has found. The study, Resilient, Receptive and Relevant: The African-American Consumer 2013 Report, was released at a news conference Thursday at the Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Weekend by Nielsen and the National Newspaper Publishers Association. The findings were released by Cheryl Pearson-McNeil, senior vice 0president of public affairs and government relations for Nielsen, and Cloves Campbell, chairman of the NNPA and publisher of the Arizona Informant. “Advertising expenditures geared specifically toward Black audiences reflected only three percent of

Journalist Prepares to Take Stage in Dublin By A.J. Dugger III

Two-time Emmy Award-winning Multimedia Journalist Dr. Sybril Bennett has a busy October planned. In addition to promoting her new book, “Innovate: Lessons from the Underground Railroad,” she will be speaking on The People’s Stage at the Web Summit in Dublin, Ireland in October. “I am the only African American female speaker out of hundreds,” said

Dr. Sybril Bennett

Bennett, an associate professor of journalism at Belmont University. The Web Summit is Europe’s version of “South by Southwest,” (SXSW) the conference where missionaries, entrepreneurs and other leaders meet to create innovative start-ups. Over 10,000 attendees will arrive from all over the world to participate, but only 50 people will get the chance to speak on the People’s Stage, something that Bennett is honored to do.

“This is a big deal,” she told The Tennessee Tribune. “I’ll be in Dublin for a week.” The main stage will also include Professional Skateboarder and Cisco Systems CEO Tony Hawk, reps from Wordpress, Evernote and many other companies. The Web Summit will take place on October 30-31. In the meantime, Bennett is busy promoting her new book, “Innovate: Bennett Continued on page 11A

Nashville-Area Leaders to Launch Amp Coalition

NASHVILLE, TN — A group of community and business leaders came together today to launch the communitywide Amp Coalition, which will support a long-term rapid transit strategy for the Nashville region, beginning with the proposed bus rapid transit (BRT) line – the Amp – which will connect East and West Nashville. “Nashville is a vibrant and growing metropolitan area, and with that growth come challenges in making it possible for people to get where they need to go,” said Dr. Mike

TAKE 10

Schatzlein, chief executive officer of Saint Thomas Health, who will serve as chairman of the coalition. “We have an opportunity to address our transportation needs before today’s traffic problems turn into tomorrow’s gridlock. The Amp is the right first step in the transit solution for Nashville. If we take this step now, we can keep our city moving.” Unlike other transit service currently offered in the area, Amp vehicles will travel, not in traffic with other vehicles, but in dedicated lanes, allowing them to move at a

fast pace, no matter how fast traffic is moving. The Amp will cover a 7.1-mile route that runs through the heart of Nashville – from Five Points in East Nashville through downtown to the Saint Thomas West hospital campus in West Nashville. The Amp will provide an alternative for car traffic on the West End corridor, which is projected to experience a dramatic increase in volume and congestion in the next three to five years. After several years of study and review, the Metropolitan Transit

Dr. Berry Revisits Women of Vision at NAACP Gala By A.J. Dugger III

Dr. Mary Frances Berry was honored at The Nashville Branch’s NAACP’s 40th Freedom Fund Banquet and Gala last Saturday, September 21, 2013 at the new Music City Center. The event honored and recognized women associated with Nashville for their efforts in improving civil rights and equality. The 2013 theme was, “The NAACP Salutes Women of Vision.” Berry, a life member of the NAACP, was the keynote speaker. She was selected because of her many contributions to civil and human rights. “It’s a great pleasure to be selected,” she told The Tennessee Tribune. “I’m always happy to be among the people I know and come from. It was a great pleasure to speak to them and be honored by them.” Berry has spoken at many different NAACP events all over the country, but this was her first time speaking at a Freedom Fund Banquet in Nashville. The Freedom Fund Banquet is one of the NAACP’s events that assists the organization’s national and local desire to make certain that there is educational, social, economic and political equality of everyone regardless of race, color, or creed. During her speech, Berry addressed where African Americans have been and where they need to go to get liberty and justice. In

addition, she had plenty of experience of her own to draw from. Berry was born in Nashville on February 17, 1938. Times were hard, but she got a grade school education in the city’s segregated school system where she graduated from high school as a top honor student. She attended Fisk University and then transferred to Howard University and earned her bachelor’s degree. Years later at the University of Michigan, she earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree in History as well as a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree. She made history when she became the first African-American woman to lead a major research university by becoming the chancellor of The University of Colorado. She was appointed U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education and eventually to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights by President Jimmy Carter in 1977. She made headlines again years later when she was fired by President Ronald Reagan for severely criticizing his civil rights policies. However, she sued him and was reinstated to the Commission in a federal district court. President Bill Clinton elevated her to becoming chairperson of the Commission in 1993, where Berry served

proudly until 2004. Berry is currently the Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American Social Thought and Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania. Berry mentioned several “women of vision” during her speech, including Callie House, whom Berry wrote a book about called ““My Face Is Black Is True: Callie House and the Struggle for Ex-Slave Reparations.” “Callie House was from Tennessee, and she started a reparation movement for ex-slaves in the 1890s. She had been a slave herself and was a woman of vision,” said Berry. Other books Berry wrote include “Black Resistance/ White Law: A History of Constitutional Racism in America,” and “Power in Words: The Stories behind Barack Obama’s Speeches, from the State House to the White House.” For more information and updates on Berry, visit maryfrancesberry.com

How Obamacare Will Help Heal Blacks With Health Issues By Kendra Lee

In January 2014, when coverage kicks in for plans purchased by Dec. 15, millions of Americans will have access to affordable health care. Some provisions of the health care law, signed in March 2009, are already in place, benefiting millions of black people: * About 7 million African Americans with private insurance have access to expanded preventive services without having to spend a cent. These services include blood pressure and cholesterol screenings, colonoscopies, flu shots, Pap smears and mammograms for women, and well-child visits. (For a complete list of expanded pre-

ventive services, click here.) * The 4.5 million elderly and disabled African Americans covered by Medicare also have access to an expanded list of preventive services with no cost-sharing, including annual wellness visits, diabetes, colorectal cancer and osteoporosis screening and mammograms. * More than 500,000 African Americans between ages 19 and 25 who would have been uninsured have coverage through a provision of the ACA that allows them to stay under their parents’ health plans whether they’re in college or in the workforce. By 2016 an estimated 7 million African Americans who would otherwise be unin-

sured will gain coverage. The health law will also provide these benefits in 2014: * Medicaid coverage expands to include low-income Americans (about $15,400 for an individual or $31,400 for a family of four). This expansion includes adults without dependent children, who previously have not been eligible. Currently, adults who don’t have children “don’t qualify for Medicaid no matter how poor they may be,” says Alan Weil, executive director of the National Academy for State Health Policy. * Individuals with higher incomes (up to 400 percent of the federal poverty guidelines, about $92,200 for a family of four) will be eligible to purchase subsidized cov-

erage from the marketplace. * People with pre-existing conditions can no longer be denied coverage. (This already applies to children.) * About 19 million patients are seen in community health centers; roughly 26 percent (1 in 5) of those patients are African Americans. According to Gracia, the ACA increases the funding available to these centers nationwide, as well as expanding the services they provide.

LETTERS TO EDITOR Dear Editor; Congress has a big mess to address. Reports from Washington, D.C. are suggesting that our country will reach its debt limit next month. Our nation is 3 weeks away from defaulting on bills. There has been pressure to raise the debt ceiling (again). As citizens, we do not have the luxury of increasing our credit card limits when we reach them. Our debit cards will be rejected when we run out of money. We have all learned to some extent) how to budget. Many of our Congressional leaders had successful careers prior to serving in office. Some even worked in the finan-

cial industry. Yet, collectively, they cannot come together to figure this out. It has only been two years since the ceiling was first raised. Clearly, problems have not been addressed. Budgeting is simple. Determine how much income is coming in. Spend less than that number. If spending is too high, find areas to cut back. lfs lime to eliminate the waste. Let’s encourage our Congressional representatives to do their part to resolve this issue. No more band-aids! Ozeme J Bonnette The Christian Money Coach www.thechrislianmoneycoach.com

Pinky’s Haircare Service: A Story of Challenge, Perseverance and Faith Encouraged and Optimistic: African Philanthropy and Museums “If you build it they will come... good business model?” Part III of III

l-r, Quiane (Pinky) Howse and John Rucker recently opened a salon in Nashville

By Clint Boyd, Jr.

NASHVILLE, TNPinky’s Haircare Services recently opened in Nashville, a seemingly garden variety salon in an already saturated market. However, the love that binds owners Quian’e (Pinky) Howse and John Rucker is a story of challenge, perseverance and faith. The couple met in 2009 a couple of months after John was released from Riverbend Maximum Security Institution after serving 17 years in prison. Hanging with the wrong crowd as a youth led John to a life of crime. While committing armed robbery with his friends at age 17, the victim was killed. And while John denies he was the trigger man, he served 17 years for 2nd degree murder, aggravated armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping. While incarcerated, John earned his general education development (G.E.D) degree and gained skills and certifications in commercial cleaning and masonry. He also completed classes in anger management, substance abuse and learning to live. In 2003 he completed an extensive 30-week rehabilitation curriculum called Developing and Improving Life Skills. John was released from Riverbend on parole in June 2009 at age 35. Still a relatively young man, with his head on straight, John sought to become active in the community, encouraging youth to stay away from violence and serving as a panelist on a Stop the Violence forum. Jobs for an ex-offender were hard to come by, but John persevered and worked a number of odd jobs including cleaning houses, painting, pressure washing and laying floors. “One of the first jobs I got was landscaping,” said John. “I didn’t know anything about landscaping, but I got out there and I learned. I’d rather be out there making $7.25 an hour versus the thirty-four cents an hour I was making in prison. That was an increase to me. I thought I was rich.” Pinky grew up in Nashville; attending Hunters Lane High School but did not graduate. By the time she was due to gradu-

ate, she had a two year old son. She moved out on her own at age 17 to Cayce Place projects to take care of her son. She earned her G.E.D and decided to go to cosmetology school. After she earned her cosmetology license, she started working as a cosmetologist at JC Penny. She worked at a number of salons, and other places to help make ends meet, all while tending to ill parents. While working at MasterCuts in Cool Springs a manager who was relocating asked Pinky if she knew anyone who wanted to purchase some shop equipment. Pinky was able to purchase the equipment with thoughts of someday opening a salon. John met Pinky shortly after he got out of prison. They became friends and started dating. Neither knew that five months later John would be the unintended victim in a parking lot shooting outside a Nashville night club. His injuries left him paralyzed from the waist down. “It’s ironic when you victimize someone and then you become a victim yourself, because you see both sides of the coin,” said John. “You see the hurt that you caused people and then your family is going through the exact same thing that people have gone through because you are hurt. So you get to see life through a different eye.” Pinky visited John regularly while he was undergoing rehab at Vanderbilt Medical Center and when he completed the rehabilitation she invited him to move in with her. Asked why she decided to stay in the relationship, she replied, “We became the best of friends from the time we met. I don’t do friends like that. He was a friend who got hurt. I knew it was going to be

tough, but I wasn’t ready to give up on our relationship. I know he would be there for me.” Pinky took off of full-time work and started working at WalMart part time so she could care for John. Once he started to become more self-sufficient, Pinky had more time and freedom to work on the idea of starting the business. John received his worker’s compensation payment and helped Pinky pay off her student loans from cosmetology school. There was also enough money to start Pinky’s Haircare Services, a full service salon. Pinky and John served their first customer in July 2013. In addition to servicing their regular clients, the owners want to use the business to give back to the community by providing services to home health care clients and the mentally disabled. “I want to leave a legacy where it never hurts to help somebody,” said Pinky. “It never hurts to be a shoulder for someone, regardless of whether you know them or not. Business-wise, the way I’m going to make money is to do the hair care services. But I still want to reach out to the community,” she said. John quickly agreed adding, “Even though you go through trials and tribulations, you can’t allow it to dictate you laying down and not getting up. You’ve got to understand that we all have to go through something ‘cause life is a journey. But it’s how you deal with the situation that is going to determine the outcome.” Pinky’s Hair Care Services is located at 2626 D Murfreesboro Pike, Nashville, TN 37217.

The African American and African Diaspora museums and cultural institutions that have emerged across the United States are a testimony to perseverance. At the same time they, like many other cultural institutions, face many challenges. Nonprofit CEO, capacity building consultant, master strategist and cultural arts worker Grace C. Stanislaus recently shared her perspectives on African American and African Diaspora giving, philanthropy, and the role of cultural and arts institutions. “Our present level of giving to social justice, civil rights, poverty, health, education, and other social and political causes, and to the arts, is truly remarkable. Our giving to the arts is especially remarkable given the systematic denigration of our contributions to American and world culture, and decades of exclusion from art history books and from mainstream museums.” “Yet coupled with our remarkable progress are challenges,” Stanislaus continued. “One challenge is the dramatic scale up in the size of the architectural edifices we’ve built in the past several decades to house our art and to tell our stories. We’re suffering from the disparity between the increase in the economy of scale and the economic reality of what’s required to operate and sustain these multimillion dollar facilities. The “if you build it they will come” approach as a business model doesn’t work without strong financial and operational foundations such as endowments or reserves. It certainly doesn’t work when marketing funds are inadequate to nonexistent, and development departments are inadequately staffed.” “In general our institutions experi-

ence a lack of diversity of funding sources and an overreliance on a small and over tapped community of funders,” she continued. “We need to focus on building high performing boards that in their makeup represents the diversity of our society and whose members deeply understand their role in bringing the right balance of wealth, wisdom and work to the equation.” “More time and resources have to be put into cultivating the philanthropic/ giving culture among members of our African American and African Diaspora communities, old and young. We need to recognize the changing climate of philanthropy in general, and find new and entrepreneurial approaches to sustaining and growing these valuable institutions.” She ended the interview with a focus on the future, saying, “I’m encouraged when our museums establish young professional affiliate groups. While we continue to aggressively cultivate and expand our current donor base, and to establish planned giving programs, we must prepare a future generation of members, patrons, board members, angel investors, impassioned volunteers and ambassadors to take stewardship of our museums. The Studio Museum in Harlem has its Contemporary Friends program, MoAD has its dynamic MoAD Vanguard, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture is ahead of the curve in establishing its Ambassadors program. We have fought for our institutions; we now need to strategically ensure their survival and growth.” Copyright 2013 – Mel and Pearl Shaw; Mel and Pearl Shaw are the authors of “Prerequisites for Fundraising Success.” They position nonprofits for fundraising success.

NASHVILLE, TN — On the heels of the 50th Anniversary of the March for Jobs and Freedom, Nashville, TN, is taking the lead on unlocking the door to the U.S. economy’s growth by ensuring equal opportunities and economic mobility to all Nashvillians. On September 10, 2013, the Metro City Council passed historic legislation requiring any business that receives incentives for development in the city must utilize Metro’s Workforce Development Program by hiring local workers trained by the program and also employ Metro’s Diversified Business Program wherein they are required to have a goal to spend twenty percent of all construction cost with small, women, and minorityowned businesses. These programs have already made a significant impact in the city with the construction of Nashville’s state-of-theart 590 million dollar Music City Center, where thirty-three percent of the

total project cost was spent with small, women, and minority-owned businesses and employed over 400 workers from the workforce development initiative. In similar stride, the new Omni Nashville Hotel, a 250 million dollar project, where forty percent of all construction cost was spent with MBE & DBE contracors, suppliers & vendors and over 150 people were employed through the workforce development initiative. Councilman at-Large Jerry Maynard II served as lead sponsor on this legislation. He and his co-sponsor, Councilman Lonnell Matthews, began the groundwork for this legislation three years ago with the creation of Nashville’s Workforce Development Program. “With the success of these projects we were able to make this a permanent program,” says Councilman Maynard. He added, “We want people to know that Nashville is business friendly for small, women, and minority owned businesses.”

NBA Law Academy Reaches Over 10,000 Students

WASHINGTON D.C. - Patricia Rosier, National Bar Association President and NBA members around the country piloted the NBA Law Academy, a pipeline initiative educating youth about their constitutional rights in conjunction with Constitution Day on September 17, 2013.  Constitution Week is a federally recognized program for students to learn about the U.S. Constitution through classroom witness our affiliate chapters as- efforts,” said President Rosier. activities. “I am so happy and proud to sists with our national  pipeline “Our members touched the lives

of over 10,000 middle-school students nationwide and also provided students with a pocketsized copy of the U.S. Constitution.”    NBA members volunteered and taught constitutional law to middle school students in select cities around the county and emphasized the Sixth Amendment. President Rosier originally had a goal of reaching 5,000 students. This goal was surpassed and members were able to reach over 10,000 students nationwide.

“I believe learning how to be a productive citizen is one of the most valuable tools students acquire,” said Carmen Wright, Social Studies Department Chair at Isaac J. Gourdine Middle School, located in Prince George’s County, Maryland.   Schools from California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Texas and Washington D.C. were a few of participating schools.

African Americans at Higher Risk for Alzheimer’s Disease By Ronald W. Weathersby

Studies have shown that AfricanAmericans are two times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease compared to whites. Scientists speculate that one of the causes of this phenomena is that black people experience a higher rate of vascular disease (diseases involving blood vessels, including heart attack and stroke) – one of the suspected risk factors of Alzheimer’s disease. While researchers don’t know exactly what causes Alzheimer’s disease, they have identified factors that signal a greater risk, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, lack of exercise and diabetes. Moreover, due to disparities in health coverage, African Americans are less likely to receive medical services needed to monitor and control vascular conditions that may lead to Alzheimer’s disease. Doctors also stress that the role of family and community has both positive and negative implications for the person with dementia. Unfortunately the problem may be exacerbated by the fact that many individuals and their families overlook the warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease falsely believing the symptoms are part of normal aging. As a result they are usually diagnosed too late and do not get the best care possible according to medical professionals. In 2002, the Alzheimer’s Association discussed the “silent epidemic” of dementia within America’s black community and, in fact there appears to be a disproportionately high rate of dementia among African Americans. Unfortunately, little else about this disease is really well understood. Last month a new report found that African Americans bear more than onethird of the nation’s costs of Alzheimer’s and dementia care, although they make up less than 14% of the population. The costs for African Americans in 2012 were nearly $71.6 billion, out of total national costs of $210 billion. Other findings from the report include: Nearly half of Alzheimer’s costs to African Americans are concentrated in Southern states. Nearly 61% of costs ($43.6 billion) are for informal caregiving; other costs are

nursing home care ($14.6 billion), lost productivity/wages for those aged 4064 with Alzheimer’s/dementia ($6.1 billion), and medical costs ($5.5 billion). As with other racial/ethnic groups, Medicare is the primary payer for medical costs (59%) and Medicaid for nursing homes, adult day care and assisted living (54%). African American families pay more than $3.45 billion out-of-pocket for these costs of care. “The economic burden of Alzheimer’s on African Americans is stunning. The size of the burden is due to the greater prevalence of Alzheimer’s in this population,” said the report’s lead author

Darrell Gaskin, PhD, deputy director, Center for Health Disparities Solutions, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “With the growing number of African Americans over age 75, the prospect of more than one in three older African Americans with cognitive impairment will overwhelm families and our society.” Dr. Thomas O. Obisesan, chief, Division of Geriatrics at the Department of Medicine at Howard University concurred with the findings in a recent telephone interview with the Tribune.

“Genetics are a factor in Alzheimer’s disease among African Americans,” said Obisesan. “We also know the frequency the disease is similar in Africa but not as prevalent as in the U.S. There may be some other factors that contribute to the high occurrence of Alzheimer’s in African Americans.” Obisesan went on to say that although researchers continue to search for the answers to the cause and cure for Alzheimer’s there are lifestyle choices individuals can do to lessen the chance of getting the disease. “I use a list when lecturing,” he explained. “I call it the “12 dos to put on you to-do list. They include losing weight, exercise, proper treatment of high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high cholesterol, reducing stress, stop smoking, moderate intake of alcohol and proper nutrition. These things can go a long way in preventing cardio-vascular diseases which we believe in a contributing factor in contracting Alzheimer’s.” Warning Signs of Dementia It may be hard to know the difference between age-related changes and the first signs of Alzheimer’s disease. To help, the Alzheimer’s Association has created this list of warning signs for Alzheimer’s and related dementias. • Memory Loss that disrupts daily life. • Challenges in planning or solving problems. • Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure. • Confusion with time or place. • Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships. • New problems with words in speaking or writing. • Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps. • Decreased or poor judgment. •Withdrawal from work or social activities. • Changes in mood and personality For more information about Alzheimer’s disease contact you health care provider or, the Alzheimer’s Association Mid-South Chapter Headquarters, 4825 Trousdale Dr, Nashville, TN 37220, (615) 315-5880 www.alz.org

EDUCATION

TSU History Major to Lead State-Wide Student Organization

NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) — Parris Malone always wanted to be a teacher from as far back as she could remember. From the moment she stepped into her first-grade classroom until she finished high school, she knew that a career in education was what she wanted to pursue. Her ultimate goal is to eventually become a university professor and teach history. But before she gets there, the junior from Memphis, Tenn., also wants to serve in a role that will not only help aspiring teachers attending Tennessee State University, but also those students statewide. Later this year, Malone will begin serving as the President for the Student Tennessee Education Association, the largest professional organization for educators in the state that advocates for educators, students preparing to become educators, and students in the public school system. “I’m very excited to have been elected into this role,” said Malone. “This is going to give me the opportunity to be involved and advocate for students going through the university system as they prepare to become teachers.” Malone, a History major seeking a teaching certificate, has been part of TSU chapter of TEA since she first started classes at the University. During her first three years, she has served as chapter historian, vice president, and this year as chapter president. When the spring elections rolled around earlier year, she decided to seek the state president position because, “if you are going to be involved in an organization, you might as well go for the top spot,” she said. But while she modestly does not see her election as a big deal and just something she was supposed to do, others around campus think just the opposite. One of the advisors to the Student TEA chapter at the University, Debra Jackson, sees her new role as a way to lead by example and engage more college students. “We are all ecstatic about Parris and her upcoming position as president of the Student TEA,” said

Parris Malone

Jackson, Director of the curriculum laboratory in the College of Education. “She has shown herself to be a hardworking, lead-by example president on the local level, and I expect no less as leader for the student membership across Tennessee. I look forward to what I know will be an exceptional year in the first steps in her future as the noted leader and educator she is destined to become.” Dr. Nicole Kendall, Interim Department Chair in the Department of Learning and Teaching, was in total agreement, saying that Malone has the poise and presence needed to serve in a pre-professional organization. She was impressed with Malone’s desire to advocate for education rights and student issues, and thinks she is a remarkable student leader. “In her pursuit to serve as STEA state president, other chapters were impressed with the ideas that she discussed in her campaign, challenging those in attendance to ‘give to students more than just average learning,’” said Kendall.   “As she prepares for her tenure as state president, she continues to look for ways to engage college students so they see their education as more than  just taking care of someone’s kids. I know her hopes are to make a difference in herself, by making STEA a better organization.” Malone will assume her new role July 1. Her first order of business is preparing for fall 2014 state conference.

TSU Communications Major Selected for Reporting Project NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) – Tennessee State University senior Communications major Jer’Mykeal McCoy has landed a unique opportunity to report for The Tennessean. The Knoxville native will join

Jer’Mykeal McCoy

seven Middle Tennessee State University students in a federal judicial system reporting project to cover the federal courts as student reporters for the newspaper. The journalism project is designed to give students the opportunity to become immersed in daily reporting on the activities of the U.S. District Courts and other federal law enforcement operations, using a “teaching hospital” method of instruction. “This project is designed for stu-

dents to learn how to provide content to mainstream media, from newspapers to television, radio and website operations,” said MTSU Prof. Wendell Rawls, Pulitzer Prize winner, investigative reporter and editor, who is leading the project. As advisor, Rawls will edit all student copy before it is considered for publication. According to Dr. Terry Likes, Professor of Multimedia Journalism and Head of the Department of Mass Communication & Theatre, McCoy will earn 12 hours of credit at TSU by working with the Tennessean. “This is a very unique opportunity for Jer’Mykeal to gain full-time journalism experience covering the courts, and working with a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and a nationally recognized news organization,” he said. McCoy attributes the opportunity to hard work and outstanding faculty and friends at TSU. “It’s a blessing to be chosen for this opportunity,” he said. “This just goes to show that your TSU experience is what you make it and I am making the best out of it. This would not be possible if not for the great faculty and students in the Communications Department.” McCoy, who graduates in December 2013, will join the MTSU students for the spring semester. They will start with a one-two-week boot camp where they will meet judges.

Marionette Show at Vanderbilt Brings Ancient Maya Tales to Life By Ann Marie Deer Owens

The adventures of ancient Maya mythical heroes will be dramatized in a free marionette show that premieres Sept. 26 at Vanderbilt University’s Central Library. “The Amazing Twins: Ancient Maya Tales from the Popol Wuj” was created by Vanderbilt’s Center for Latin American Studies and the renowned puppeteers of the Nashville Public Library during a three-year collaboration. The puppet show, which will be at 5:30 in the library’s Community Room, is appropriate for children as well as adults. A reception will follow the performance. “The Popol Wuj, which means community book, is one of the most important indigenous texts of the Americas,” said Claire González, assistant director for outreach at the Center for Latin American Studies. “It contains ideas and histories dating back 2,500 years, allowing us to glimpse at an important piece of history. We are pleased to have worked with the Nashville Public Library and Nash-

ville Public Library Foundation on this project.” This collection of myths and legends was written by K’iche’ Maya, who dominated the Western Highlands during the 16th century. It was translated into Spanish in the 1700s by the Friar Francisco Ximènez.” Following the premiere, the show will be presented Saturdays Sept. 28 through Oct. 19 at the Nashville Public Library. It will also become a permanent part of its renowned marionette series, traveling to hundreds of schools throughout the region. In addition, the Center for Latin American Studies and the Nashville Public Library will offer

education on the marionette show to students and teachers at Wright Middle School as part of the Metro Nashville Public Schools Intercession Program. Faculty and staff from the Center for Latin American Studies and the Nashville Public Library’s Bringing Books to Life program have created curriculum resources for K-12 teachers to be used with the puppet show. These resources are available to educators online as well as during the center’s workshops and other events. For more information, email the Center for Latin American Studies or call 615-322-2527.

MTSU’s Penn Says Economy Showing Positive Growth Trends MURFREESBORO — Though the unemployment rate still remains higher than pre-Great Recession levels in Rutherford and other Midstate counties, upward trends in job growth rates, housing permits and construction point to a stronger economic future for the region. “It’s mostly good news,” said professor David Penn, director of the MTSU Business and Economic Research Center, during his presentation Friday at the annual MTSU Economic Outlook Conference inside the Student Union. “I really had to look for some bad news.” Penn provided an exhaustive update at the half-day conference, showing statistics on statewide and Midstate economic indicators such as employment rates, income growth, sales tax collections, housing starts and manufacturing, to name a few. You can review Penn’s presentation online at www. mtsu.edu/berc. Job growth is “booming” in the Midstate, Penn said, pointing out that Rutherford County ranked sixth nationally among the largest 334 U.S. counties for rate of overall job growth, with Williamson County ranking 15th. For private sector growth,

Dr. David Penn

the Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area was tops in the nation among large metro areas. Other positive trends for Middle Tennessee: housing construction is improving significantly; home price growth is positive; consumer spending is growing; and most sectors are adding jobs. Regarding the unemployment rate’s slow improvement — 6.7 percent for the Nashville Metro Area in the second quarter, unchanged from a year earlier — Penn again pointed to a positive: More people are entering the job market seeking work. On a statewide level, most of the counties with the lowest jobless rates are located in the Midstate. “If you want to know how the economy is improving, don’t look at the unemploy-

ment rate because that’s the last thing to come along,” Penn said. Among the negatives cited by Penn were drops in employment within the financial and government sectors. MTSU alumna Beverly George, who works for Pinnacle Financial in Murfreesboro, was attending the conference for the first time. George, who earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business at MTSU, said she plans to come back and was pleased with the wealth of information shared during the presentations. “It was a privilege to hear such distinguished speakers,” George said. “It was interesting to realize what a valuable resource we have in the Business and Economic Research Center right here at MTSU.” The conference targets bankers, business owners and managers, community officials and leaders, business people, business and economics educators, students and others interested in the future economic growth of the region.

NATIONAL NEWS

First Lady Urges Americans to Sign Up For Obamacare

go away because you can’t afford to see a doctor. No one should have to struggle like this. All Americans deserve the security and peace of mind of knowing that when they or their loved ones get sick, they can get the care they need. More than anything else, that’s really what the new health care law is all about. The law is already helping millions of people across the country by letting young people stay on their parents’ insurance

until they’re 26 years old and requiring insurance companies to cover preventive care – things like flu shots and mammograms. In addition, insurance companies are now required to cover the costs of birth control and they won’t be allowed to charge you more if you’re a woman (some insurance companies have been charging women 50 percent more than men for the same coverage – that will soon be illegal). Insurance companies will also no longer be able to discriminate against you if you have a pre-existing condition like asthma or diabetes. If you don’t currently have insurance, there’s now a simple way to get coverage that fits your needs and your budget, no matter how much money you make. Starting on Oct. 1, you can go to the Health Insurance Marketplace and you’ll find a range of insurance plans all in one place, lined up side-by-side and explained in easy-to-understand language. You’ll be able to compare what each plan covers and how much each plan costs. You can then choose the plan that works best for your needs and your budget. It’s your health, made simple. Depending on your income, you may be eligible for discounts on your monthly premiums; people with the lowest incomes may be eligible for free coverage. And the majority of people without in-

surance today will be able to find a plan for under $100 a month — less than what many folks pay for their cell phone bill. No matter what plan you choose, you’ll have the security of knowing that if you don’t have a job, or if you lose your job, you’ll still have your health insurance. So if you’ve wanted insurance, but you haven’t been able to afford it before now, be sure to go to HealthCare.gov and sign up – or call this toll free number: 1-800-3182596. And once you get yourself signed up, make sure everyone you know signs up, too. Talk to your friends, your family, your colleagues, your fraternity brothers and sorority sisters, people at church. If they think they don’t need insurance, talk some sense into them – convince them that, contrary to what they might think, no one is invincible. It might take a few tries before people really listen, but I promise you that when your loved ones finally get the care they need – and they have the security and peace of mind that comes with having insurance – they’ll thank you for staying on them about this. So whatever you do, don’t take no for an answer – your health and the health of the people you love is far too important.

Former President Bill Clinton weighed in on an increasingly likely government shutdown in an interview with ABC’s ‘This Week’. Clinton criticized Republican demands, as well as their obsession with Obamacare. “I’ve never seen a time-- can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail?” The House voted early Sunday to make major cuts and delays to the Affordable Care Act in exchange for con-

tinuing to fund the government. The bill marks the 43rd time that House Republicans have voted to defund or repeal Obamacare. The White House and Senate Democrats have already said that this kind of a demand is a non-starter. Clinton also said President Obama was right to not take Republican demands seriously. “If I were the president, I wouldn’t negotiate over these draconian cuts that are gonna take food off the table of lowincome working people, while they leave

all the agricultural subsidies in for highincome farmers and everything else,” he said. “It’s chilling to me. The entitlement spending is going down as the unemployment rate drops and the economy grows. Half of the deficit’s already disappeared. The rest of it just seems almost spiteful.” Clinton stayed mostly mum on wife Hillary Clinton’s rumored 2016 presidential run, but he said he was “not at all” worried that any potential Obamacare failures would hurt her chances.

By Michelle Obama

It wasn’t that long ago that Barack and I were starting out as a newly married couple, trying to make our apartment in Chicago feel like a home and getting used to each other’s quirks and routines. And while we were happy and excited to be building a life together, like a lot of young couples, our finances weren’t exactly in great shape. We both had staggering student loan bills and pretty much every dollar of our paychecks was accounted for the minute it landed in our bank accounts. But we were lucky – we both had jobs that gave us health insurance, so we knew that if one of us got sick or had an accident, our lives wouldn’t be turned upside down. Today, a lot of folks aren’t so lucky, especially in the African-American community. And even those of us who have insurance probably know plenty of people who don’t – a cousin who can’t afford it, a brother who thinks he’s invincible and doesn’t need it, a friend who thinks it’s just too complicated to get it. And for so many folks, not having insurance leads to so much anxiety and stress: the fear that one accident or illness will mean losing everything you have, and all those everyday worries – the pains you ignore, the symptoms you hope will just

Black Media From page 1A which mobile apps are most popular, a deep dive into how Blacks spend their digital time, and how companies can reach 10 million Black consumers by developing a southern regional strategy – this year’s report is really a compelling read for both advertisers and marketers.” A 2011 study by Burrell Communications showed that 81 percent of Blacks believe that products advertised in Black media are more relevant to them. Businesses that bypass the Black media, the report said, limit their potential growth. “Companies mistakenly believe there are no language barriers, that a general market ‘one-size-fits-all’ strategy is an effective way to reach African-Americans” the Nielsen study said. “Just the opposite is true.” The Nielsen study names the companies that do the most advertising with Black media: • Procter & Gamble ($75.32 million) • L’Oreal ($52.34 million) • McDonald’s ($38.24 million) • Unilever ($31.48 million) • U.S. Government ($28.36 million) • Berkshire/Hathaway ($27.81 million) • Comcast ($27.69 million) • Hershey ($27.01 million) • PepsiCo ($25.07 million) • Wal-Mart ($24.40 million) • Fiat ($23.60 million) • AT&T ($22.49 million) • Verizon Communications ($22.08 million) • Toyota ($21.43 million) • General Motors

Coalition From page 1A Authority recommended a BRT line with dedicated lanes in the West End-Main Street corridor as the preferred option because it provides all of the benefits of highcapacity transit without the high infrastructure costs. The Amp is projected to cost approximately $175 million, while light rail along the same route would cost more than $1 billion. The coalition is being formed in order to raise awareness of the benefits of the proposed Amp and to win support for the creation of a larger rapid transit system for the Middle Tennessee region, which is projected to see almost 1 million new residents move to this region by 2035 – making it about the size that the Denver area is today. “Nashville is a great city because it’s a city that keeps growing while maintaining its quality of life,” said Ralph Schulz, president and CEO of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. “People want to be here and businesses want to be here because Nashville finds ways to address its challenges in a cost-effective and efficient way. The East-West corridor through downtown is the ‘Main Street’ of this region – it is the strategic spine of Nashville’s transit system – so it makes sense that the first leg of our new system will start there. The Amp is the right first step in developing Nashville’s transit solution that keeps us competitive for the future.” The Amp Coalition steering committee is composed of community leaders with diverse backgrounds and expertise. Individuals and businesses that would like to join the coalition are urged to contact Kathleen Coffen at kat@ ampyes.org. “I applaud the business community and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce for bringing together an impressive group of coalition members to show the

($20.81 million) • Sony ($19.88 million) • Johnson & Johnson ($19.59 million) • Ford ($19.11 million) • Allstate ($19.06 million) • National Amusements Inc. ($18.92 million) Advertising by the top 20 companies increased by 2.5 percent between 2011 and 2012. The companies with the largest increases in spending with Black media were: Unilever (40.1 percent), PepsiCo (39.1 percent), Wal-Mart (27.2 percent), the U.S. government (26.4 percent), L’Oreal (19.6 percent), Berkshire Hathaway (15.1 percent) and Comcast (13.2 percent). The top 20 advertisers with the largest decreases were: Johnson & Johnson (30.7 percent), National Amusements (26.2 percent) and Verizon (24.6 percent). “Until we do a better job as consumers in the choices we make and invest in companies that invest in us, we are not going to have any changes,” PearsonMcNeil said. Campbell said he hopes the data will help develop “conscious consumers.” Utilizing Black media makes good business sense, the report said. “By aligning additional marketing support and more focused strategies using media sources such as Black newspapers, Black radio, Black online sites and other media outlets trusted and relied on by Blacks for their unfiltered information, companies can develop more culturally relevant messages …” the report stated. It noted that Blacks over-index in certain categories, including health and beauty aids, unprepared meat, frozen seafood, feminine hygiene, women’s fragrances and detergents.

strong community support that exists for The Amp,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “Whenever Nashvillians are faced with a choice about the direction the city should take, more often than not we choose the right path – the path of progress. The Amp Coalition will be an important and active voice in support of the type of progress we need with mass transit to ensure Nashville can continue to move forward.” The coalition will begin distributing supporting materials in the coming days, and has created a website, www.ampyes.org, that will provide information about the project and opportunities to join the effort to move it forward.

“An examination of African Americans’ overall category uses reveals some notable and perhaps newly discovered behavioral distinctions between Blacks and the Total Market,” the report found. “Blacks spend 44 percent more time on Education and Career sites and 21 percent more time on Family and Lifestyle sites than Total Market consumers, breaking the myth that Blacks are disinterested in education and the family’s well-being. Additionally, African-Americans continue to be resilient in their role as early adopters of technology as 14 percent are more likely to spend time on Telecom/ Internet Services sites.” Blacks are also likely to spend far more time watching television. “Blacks are voracious media users and leaders when it comes to setting pop culture trends. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in Blacks’ television habits where Blacks watch 37 percent more television than any other group, spending seven hours and 17 minutes per day viewing TV, compared to five hours and 18 minutes of total viewing for Total Market,” the Nielsen study stated. It continued, “Black women, especially those 18-49, tend to be heavier viewers than their male counterparts. Not surprisingly, media outlets dedicated to Black audiences have a higher composition of Black viewers, which should be of interest to businesses who incorporate media buys into their marketing strategies.” Blacks outpace Whites in buying smartphones. The Nielsen report found that 71 percent of Blacks own smartphones, compared to 62 percent of the total population. Most African Americans prefer Androids (73 percent) over iPhones (27 percent). Although a lot of attention is being placed on the growth of Latinos in the

Bennett From page 1A Lessons from the Underground Railroad.” Published in July, the book makes surprising revelations on how the Internet and The Underground Railroad can compare to one another. The description on the back cover states that “Innovate: Lessons from the Underground Railroad dares to compare the Internet and the UGRR as two of America’s most innovative, effective, and disruptive networks. Think about it: both serve as platforms for freedom, justice, and equality. From portals and links to branding and ownership, the comparisons are too obvious to ignore.” Bennett’s first book, The

U.S., the Black population, which now stands at 43 million people, grew 64 percent faster than the rest of the country since 2000, the study said. The average age is 35, three years younger than the overall population; 53 percent of Blacks are under the age of 35. Significantly, 73 percent of Whites and 67 percent of Latinos identified Blacks as the driving force for popular culture. Fortune 100 companies not ranking in the top 20 advertisers with Black media included: General Electric, Citigroup, IBM, Philip Morris, AIG, Home Depot, Bank of America, Fannie Mae, J.P. Morgan Chase, Kroger, Merck, State Farm Insurance, Hewlett-Packard, Morgan Stanley, Sears Roebuck, Target, Merrill Lynch, Kmart, Freddie Mac, Costco, Safeway, Pfitzer, J.C.

Omni Nashville Hotel Now Open For Business NASHVILLE, TN — Today the Omni Nashville Hotel, along with more than 650 new associates, opened its doors to the public with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting celebration. Governor Bill Haslam and the First Lady Crissy Haslam, Mayor Karl Dean, members from the Metro Government of Nashville and Davidson County, leaders from Music City Center, Nashville Convention Center Authority, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., and the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum joined Omni Hotels & Resorts executives for the momentous event. The 21-story, 800-room luxury hotel, billed as “The Key to Music City,” is located on the vibrant and up-and-coming South of Broadway, or SoBro, district. “Nashville is establishing itself as one of the preeminent leisure and convention destinations in the country – the level of interest and enthusiasm in The Music City is unprecedented,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We are truly honored to be part of this important milestone in the development of Nashville’s future. I want to thank everyone who had a hand in making this hotel a reality and ensuring our pre-opening success – from the city, Music City Center, Nashville Convention Center Authority, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., and the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum to the construction team, architects and design firms.” Omni Hotels & Resorts broke ground on the hotel a little more than two years ago. Since that time, crews from Brasfield & Gorrie worked around the clock to complete construction of the hotel approximately three months ahead of schedule and on-budget. Throughout the process, the architectural and design teams including HKS Hill Glazier Studio and Looney and Associates ensured that the property captured the distinct culture and character of Nashville in the hotel design. “It was important that the Omni Nashville truly embody the raw and honest character of the city. Everything from the

materials we used to the food we serve to the art we display – is reflective of local cultural sensibilities,” said Deitemeyer. “This is our approach for all of our hotels. Each property is distinct and features elements that speak to the uniqueness of each destination.” Omni Nashville Already Seeing Early Success “I welcome the Omni Nashville Hotel as our newest resident, and I thank them for their investment in Nashville,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “This project was a great public-private partnership that will have an enormous economic impact on our city for years to come. This beautiful hotel, along with the Music City Center and the expansion at the Country Music Hall of Fame, add even more energy to our vibrant downtown and SoBro district.” To date, the Omni Nashville Hotel has more than 395,000 definite room nights booked, comprised of more than 450 meetings and conventions contracted through 2024. These numbers have been achieved approximately four months

ahead of schedule. The results reinforce the strong interest in Music City. The luxury hotel is an authentic expression of Nashville’s vibrant music culture. It is adjacent to the new Music City Center, where guests have access to an additional 1.2 million square feet of meeting and exhibit space. It also fully integrates with an expansion of the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum on three levels. In addition, the hotel boasts numerous dining and leisure options including: • Kitchen Notes, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, is a modern yet welcoming establishment featuring a fresh, contemporary spin on Nashville’s famous regional standouts. · Bob’s Steak & Chop House, a nationally renowned steak house, offers the finest steaks and chops in a classically elegant steakhouse setting. · Barlines, the live entertainment venue, is the place to imbibe in all matter of beverages.

New Cookbook With Over 100 Kosher Recipes by Jamie Geller Bestselling author of Quick & Kosher

NEW YORK, NY — This fall Jamie Geller, hailed as the “Jewish Rachael Ray” by the New York Times and founder and editor of Joy of Kosher.com, will be launching her third cookbook, JOY OF KOSHER set to debut in October 2013 just in time for The Jewish New Year, Chanukah, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! Geller herself hasn’t always been kosher. Raised on take-out, it wasn’t until her mid-twenties that she gravitated to Jewish observance, a lifestyle dropped by her family in recent generations. When she married her husband, she was dubbed the “Bride Who Knew Nothing” and was clueless about cooking. Joining his family meant celebrating more than 100 traditional holiday meals annually, complete with six-course homemade kosher dinners for the immediate and extended family. Determined to show everyone that she had what it takes and spurred to confront her “culinary clumsiness,” Geller didn’t just learn how to cook—she founded the Kosher Media Network and created cookbooks, magazines, a popular website and even a television show. Millions have incorporated the tradition of kosher cooking into their lives and in her new book JOY OF KOSHER, Geller stresses that if she can put really good food on the table, anyone can. There is no slaving in the kitchen (no rabbi required!) and cooking kosher is really not as tedious or complicated as one might think. From sharing her stories of struggling in the kitchen to her triumph when hearing the highest praise of all: “More please, Mommy,” Geller takes her tried-andtrue family meal recipes that come out right every time and makes them worthy of entertaining by including a “Dress It Up” option or an everyday “Dress It Down” option for each.

‘Dangerous Women’ Comes to Nashville By Janice Malone

NASHVILLE, TN — Following the 50th Anniversary of the historic March on Washington, the Trayvon Martin case verdict and the Supreme Court ruling to strike down the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the plight, fire and determination of two powerful women, Rosa Parks and Fannie Lou Hamer, created a movement and changed the nation. In honor of these two brave women, Nashville playwright/ director Barry Scott and The American Negro Playwright Theatre (ANPT) are presenting DANGEROUS WOMEN: 2 One-Act Plays in a Tribute to 2 Women Who Rocked the American Justice System. “ROSA” Parks, The Mother of The Civil Rights Movement, performed by Latrisha Talley and “FANNIE” Lou Hamer, the co-founder of The Freedom Party, will be performed by Sharese “Reecy” Jackson. Both young ladies are Nashville-based actresses with a plethora of experience in the theater arts. Both Plays will be performed back-to-back for ONE NIGHT ONLY at Manna From Heaven Dinner House, 3510 West Hamilton Road Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 6:30pm. A 10-minute intermission will separate the plays. An open discussion with the two actresses, the director, and the audience will take place at the conclusion of both shows. Veteran actor, playwright, and director Barry Scott founded ANPT with a mission to foster a public appreciation of theatrical productions written by or about the culture and heritage of African-Americans. “ . . .Telling stories that must be told.” Founded in 1992, ANPT is a non-profit entity dedicated to education, outreach and empowerment through the arts. The Board of Directors and Leadership Team are comprised of an array of talented individuals that come together for the common goal of serving, and making a positive difference in the lives of others through the art of theatre. Here in this interview

both Latrisha Talley and Sharese Jackson discuss what it’s like to portray two of the most brave and memorable women in modern history. TRIBUNE: Both of you share what it’s like to portray two very powerful women from the Civil Rights movement. SHARESE: “I portray

whole incident. From there the play goes into the spirit of that time period. It explores what Rosa must’ve felt, what she experienced and what others involved in that movement experienced during that era. And just like SHARESE, I also did a lot of extensive research in preparation for this role.

Fannie Lou Hamer. I also cowrote the piece, along with Barry Scott and I’m also a singer. Several years ago Barry suggested that I do some kind of project on Fannie Lou Hamer. I must admit, I had heard of her but didn’t know very much about Ms. Hamer. I started to do research about her and I was just fascinated by who this great woman was and the strides she made in her life. I traveled all the way to New Orleans to do even more research on her. I’m continuing to do even more research about her. What really surprised me though, is that there are so many people who do not know about Fannie Lou Hamer or her accomplishments to the Civil Rights Movement. Fannie Lou Hamer was such a powerful woman. It’s such an honor to have the opportunity to portray her in this project. It’s important that more and more people know her story.” LATRISHA: “I will be portraying Rosa Parks. The show definitely highlights the incident of Ms. Parks taking a stance on the bus when she was asked to give up her seat. The story starts there with the background information of what happened and the circumstances surrounding that

Thanks to modern technology, there’s not only a lot of great written material available about Rosa Parks, but I was fortunate to review actual video footage of Ms. Parks personally speaking about her experiences. I am still reading even more about her. It seems that I learn something new about her everyday so it’s an ongoing learning process.” TRIBUNE: Will the Fannie Lou Hamer production feature music? SHARESE: “The production does feature quite a bit of singing. As many know, singing played a big part in her work, so I will be doing some singing in the show.” LATRISHA: ‘For the Rosa Parks show there will be background music to set the tone of what’s going on in the scenes.” TRIBUNE: Sharese, since you’re the co-writer of the Fannie Lou Hamer production, how long did it take you and Barry Scott to write the piece? SHARESE: ‘It took about two years. This is my first time writing a piece like this, so I was very happy to be working with Barry on the project. We were very blessed to find one of Fannie Lou Hamer’s speeches that helped us frame some of the other characters in the play and just help set the

tone for the overall production.” TRIBUNE: You both noted that you’ve done extensive research for your roles in these productions. Is there something in particular that you’ve discovered about these two Civil Rights icons that has really surprised you? SHARESE: “For me it was just a surprise to see so much that I didn’t know about Fannie Lou Hamer. As I said earlier, I’ve heard of her but yet there are just so many things I didn’t know about her life. I knew that she sang. I knew that she was sick and tired of being sick and tired of how things were for African Americans back then but most of the other information about her was totally new for me.” LATRISHA: “For me it was learning about just how connected to God she really was and also how she always stayed strong through prayer. Her relationship with God was very important to her. She had the support of others during the boycott but she also had the ultimate support from God and that was reiterated throughout the information I found during my research for the role. This was information I’ve known that’s been in the back of my mind but in doing the research it all just came to the forefront for me. TRIBUNE: Opening night for both shows is only a few days away. Are you two ladies nervous with anticipation or what? SHARESE: “We’re still in rehearsals. I always get nervous right before a show actually opens but once I’m on stage it all goes away and I’m just in the moment.” LATRISHA: “Just like Sharese, I’m also a bit nervous too. The main thing for me is trying to preserve my voice for the show. I give my all in rehearsals but still being conscience about maintaining my voice. Sometimes it takes so much out of you. But I’m just so excited about the show as well. It’s a good nervous energy though.” TICKETS for both shows are $10 in advance online at www.ANPT.org and $15 at the door or purchase by calling 615-601-1008

Marvis Frazier Promotes New Book in Clarksville By A.J. Dugger III

Jabbing and punching like he used in the boxing ring, Marvis Frazier showed young athletes last weekend at the SSF Submission Academy Gym in Clarksville how to be successful fighters. “Keep your left foot forward,” the former heavyweight contender and evangelist told them. “Keep your balance and stay low.” The young athletes at SSF Submission Academy were wide-eyed as Frazier taught them how to throw effective combinations, duck punches, work the speed bag, and provided secrets on how to throw his father’s famous left hook. Frazier is the son of the late heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, Frazier was on the road promoting his new book, “Meet Marvis Frazier.” The book was written by Frazier’s friend, Jamie Potter, with additional contributions from Frazier. “I’m excited to have him with us,” said The Rev. Wilbur Burney, pastor of Williams Chapel Missionary Baptist Church where Frazier delivered a sermon. “I’m a big fan of his dad. I used to root for Joe Frazier all the time, but the only time I didn’t root for him was when he fought Muhammad Ali.” \“Meet Marvis Frazier” is packed with startling revelations. Among them are the heartfelt details of Frazier’s wife Daralyn’s death, the ring injury he suffered that left him nearly paralyzed, his call to be an evangelist and candid details of his fights with heavyweight legends Mike Tyson and Larry Holmes. Frazier’s talent as a prizefighter is sometimes overlooked. In the opinion of several sportswriters, he was one of the best heavyweights of the 1980s, scoring impressive wins over James “Bonecrusher” Smith, Jose Ribalta, James Tillis, Joe Bugner, and Steve Zouski. Smith, Ribalta, and Tillis each went the distance against Tyson. As for Bugner, it was not his first time competing against

a Frazier in the ring. (He went 12 grueling rounds against Frazier’s father, Joe, in London in 1973, hitting the canvas once in round 10). Some boxing fans speculate that if Holmes and Tyson were not on the scene, Marvis Frazier would have been heavyweight champion. During his prime fighting years, Marvis Frazier was lean and tough. He lacked the fierce left hook of his father, but he could move well, often attacking his opponents from odd angles and confusing them. Naturally, Frazier’s father swung into his corner as his trainer. Marvis Frazier was an undefeated prospect until his first round knockout loss to Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes in 1983. At the time, many in the boxing public felt that Joe Frazier rushed his inexperienced son into the championship fight. But the elder Frazier was unfazed. “When the opportunity is there in boxing, you take it,” Joe Frazier once said. But the criticisms didn’t end there. Skep-

tics also blamed Joe Frazier for changing his son’s style into more of a swarming brawler, very similar to the style Frazier himself used. “You better fight like me if you wanna be a champion,” Joe Frazier explained. The Holmes loss sparked the beginning of a depression period for Marvis Frazier. He took the loss hard, particularly because he planned on bringing the heavyweight championship back to the Frazier family. Though he didn’t succeed, his sister Jacqueline Frazier-Lyde captured the WIBA Championship in 2001. Three years later, Marvis Frazier and his father were very confident in his abilities when the time came to fight a peaking Tyson in July 1986. “When the fight started, the sound of the crowd got louder,” said Marvis Frazier. “I threw one jab. Then we moved into the corner. I didn’t see the uppercut coming, but suddenly the sound of the crowd stopped; it

was quiet, silent, even peaceful. The next thing I remember, I was laying on the canvas in the corner.” Fans always ask Frazier about that defeat, but he’s quick to joke about it. “Oh yeah, I was really confident against Tyson...until that uppercut,” he told the young fighters at SSF Submission Academy. While some former boxers might have too much pride to talk about a 30-second knockout loss they once suffered, Frazier smiled and credited his former ring rival. “Tyson was a great fighter...one of the best.” When Tyson was in jail for a rape conviction, Frazier wrote him a letter. In the letter was an inspirational poem. Tyson never forgot it, and the two developed mutual respect for each other. The way a friendship blossomed between Frazier and his friend, Potter, is a testament to the genuine nature of the Frazier family. Potter watched the 2009 documentary “The Thrilla In Manilla,” an honest film that tells the story of the three wars between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier through Joe Frazier’s eyes. Impressed by the film, Potter called Joe Frazier’s gym in Philadelphia, hoping to speak to Marvis Frazier, whose colorful interviews in the documentary were certainly a highlight. Expecting to hear a secretary answer the phone, Potter was starstruck when Marvis Frazier answered the phone himself. The two chatted for five minutes, a meeting was set up so that Potter could have lunch with Marvis and Joe Frazier and a friendship was born between Potter and Marvis Frazier. In June 2013, the book arrived, available on both Marvis Frazier’s website, meetmarvisfrazier.com and Amazon. com. “Meet Marvis Frazier” tells the story of the icon’s battles inside and outside of the ring.

Book Review by Kam Williams

“I was raised in poverty, surrounded by drug dealers, gangs and community violence. My mother was addicted to crack cocaine and alcohol. I rarely went to church… [Yet] somehow God’s grace found and saved me when no one and nothing else could... God’s Graffiti takes a look at young men and women in the Bible who overcame family and community challenges… Their stories give us some practical guidance for our own lives. You have the ability to do amazing things through your faith in God, the courage to try something different, and the help of a few committed people.” -- Excerpted from the Introduction (pages xiv-xv) Sadly, this is an era when the bulk of African-American children are being raised by single-moms with little investment in their lives on the part of their deadbeat baby-daddies. The absence of a father figure in the home ostensibly plays a big role in the high dropout, unemployment and crime rates presently plaguing the black community. Romal Tune could just as easily been another statistic. After all, his mother was a crack head who never took him to church. And the absence of his dad meant he grew up on the streets where he got mixed-up with the wrong crowd and started dealing drugs by the time he was a teenager. Miraculously, however, he found Christ and came to see the light and, benefitting from a new purpose, eventually graduated from both Howard University and Duke Divinity School. Today, Reverend Tune routinely ministers to the underserved as the founder of a couple of

organizations dedicated to at-risk youth. God’s Graffiti is a mix of memoir and motivational resource designed as a prescription to put juvenile delinquents on a proper path. The book’s title was inspired by the author’s observation of how the Lord often “takes what looks like a mess and transforms it into something amazing.” What makes the opus very relevant is how it relies on scriptures to remind the reader of the humble beginnings which many a Biblical figure had to overcome en route to finally flourishing. Again and again, from the prostitute Rahab, to the abandoned Ishmael, to the orphaned Esther, to the unfairly accused Joseph, we see how these unlikely heroes ultimately conquered their considerable challenges. For instance, Moses, the prophet who would part the Red Sea prior to leading his people to the Promised Land, was born a slave. To his credit, he survived being placed as an infant in a basket on which was allowed to drift away on the Nile by a mother desperate to save her son from certain death at the hands of the pharaoh’s henchmen. Written in a down-to-earth style certain to resonate with the targeted demographic, God’s Graffiti simultaneously addresses such salient subjects as bullying, sex, suicide, eating disorders, drugs, alcohol, divorce and abusive relationships. A timeless tool offering profound, faithbased advice for troubled teens in need of reasons to believe in a better tomorrow.

She has been gracing the big and little screens since the age of 10, and quite convincingly at that. Almost fresh out of the gate, KeKe Palmer was turning in performances that saw her nominated for many major awards and snagging a couple, such as four NAACP Image Awards. In a short career (Palmer is only 20), she has starred in over 14 films and many TV show guest roles, including having her own Nickelodeon Television Series “True Jackson VP” for three seasons. She is currently on The TV Series “Winx Club” where she stars as Aisha. As if acting is not enough on her plate, Palmer is also a recording artist with a boat load of fun and saucy videos plus, she has a new album in the works. The month of October will see her on screen with two new major projects. The first offering is a show is titled “FULL CIRCLE,” a new type of combination drama/soap opera that is shot like a movie with 10 episodes that come to an ending. This format has never been done before and Direct TV being somewhat new to TV programming hopes this project will get them in the door and off to a good start to catch up with HBO, Netflex and the other distributors who entered the content production side of the market. On the show, Palmer plays Chan’dra Stevens whose gay high school age younger brother took his life after a joke that over-the-top and outlandish comic Jace (played by David Boreanaz) told which brought bullying and shame to him. Their scene takes place in a restaurant where Jace invited Chan’dra to meet him to try and make amends.

Palmer showcased an awesome display of mature, veteran acting chops in her scene with Boreanaz, flawlessly spiting out tons of lengthy dialogue that the scene required. But this is the high caliber of a script you expect from the series’ creator, co-producer and award winning screenwriter and playwright Neil LaBute. Palmer’s appreciation for her “Full Circle” role is expressed when she explains, “I felt like this is something I’ve never done before. These are the types of things I need to be doing.

TERRI’S REVIEW

Harlem Nocturne...by Farah Jasmine Griffin

astounding ability to jump some five feet into the air – as a weapon for social justice. Ann Lane Petry was born into a wellestablished and highly-educated Connecticut family in 1908. Her father was a pharmacist, her mother was a chiropodist, and they wanted Ann to follow in the family footsteps, but she had other ideas: as a “bookish, chubby child,” she had always wanted to be a writer.

NFL

Titans Get Big Victory Over Jets

BY RON WYNN Unrealistic Expectations The Norm For Tiger Woods There are a handful of teams and athletes who are judged by vastly different standards than others. What would be a good season for most college football teams is deemed a failure at places like Alabama, Ohio State, or Notre Dame if they aren’t competing for championships. The same holds true in pro football for the New England Patriots, in baseball for the New York Yankees, and in pro basketball for the LA Lakers and Boston Celtics. UCLA fans still haven’t embraced anyone like they did during the Wooden years. But nowhere is this more the case than when it comes to golf’s Tiger Woods. Woods received his 11th Player of the Year award last week and it was predictable that there would be plenty of disagreement and carping, even though by even remotely ordinary standards Woods had an exceptional year. While no one else won more than twice, Woods won five titles. He led the PGA tour in most money won and lowest stroke average. He stayed on top throughout the season. The statistical gap between Woods and his fellow players was accented even more by the fact that PGA Player of the Year is selected by the players themselves, not writers or broadcasters. The one thing Woods did NOT do was win a major, something that has eluded him since 2008. It was Woods’ who many years ago uttered the famous words that he judged his year on how he did in the majors. When he was having incredible seasons like 2000 (when he held all four major titles at the same time) that seemed in an odd way to make sense. But age, physical wear and tear, plus domestic troubles, have interceded over the past few years. Woods remains the top golfer in the world, but he no longer has the aura of invincibility that once seemed to intimidate his fellow golfers before final rounds. He has never come from behind to win a major, something his detractors seldom fail to mention. In recent seasons he’s often been out of contention during the final two rounds of majors, and he doesn’t even win at Augusta, a course that once was redone to become “Tiger proof.” Not even his greatest enemies are dumb enough to proclaim that Woods is finished, but there are many who are happy he hasn’t won a major since 2008. There are many who detest the fact that Woods’ every move at any tournament he enters is closely followed, and that TV ratings still spike whenever he makes the final two rounds of any event. He’s far from finished, but Tiger Woods will never again be as far ahead of the pack as he was at his peak. It is foolish to think anyone will duplicate that kind of success. The goal that does remain concerns whether he can top Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 majors. Right now, the odds are long, but it still can be done.

Rob Bironas had a 26-yard field goal, and punter Brett Kern had four kicks downed inside the 20-yard line. Darius Renaud didn’t get to return any kickoffs, but had a 35-yard punt return. The next three games will provide a better benchmark of how much the team has improved. They’ll face the revived Kansas City Chiefs Sunday at home. The Chiefs have already doubled their win total from the previous year and remain among the NFL’s undefeated units at 4-0. Then comes a trip to Seattle, where the Seahawks haven’t lost in two seasons. That’s followed by an LP Field encounter with defending NFC champion San Francisco. The fact all this may have to be done without Jake Locker adds extra difficulty to the task. But over the opening four games the Titans have demonstrated that the array of non-competitive games that disillusioned numerous fans over the 2012 schedule is over. Whether they are playoff contenders remains to be seen, but they are certainly no longer pushovers.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Tigers Roll Easily to Fourth Straight Win By Ron Wynn

Offensive problems had been a recurring theme for the Tennessee State Tigers, but they absolutely had no trouble racking up points Saturday in St. Louis. The Tigers enjoyed their biggest scoring total since 1998 in demolishing Central State 73-6 at the Edward Jones Dome. It was the 20th annual Gateway Football Classic, and TSU ended any suspense very early, rolling to a 43-6 halftime lead. Michael German made his first start this season at QB. Chances are pretty good he’ll be making additional ones. Despite playing only one half he completed all eight of his passes for 159 yards and three touchdowns. Coach Reed, in a rather understated manner, said that “he’s definitely ready to move forward,” in complementing German’s performance. But Ronald Butler, who started the previous four games, continued to demonstrate improvement as well. He completed five of eight passes over the second half for another three touchdowns. The outmanned Central State team, a Division II squad who entered the game winless, had no answers for TSU, whose ground game was just as effective as the air attack. Tim Broughton had 108 yards and two touchdowns in 13 attempts. The Tigers had 311 yards on the ground and 228 passing. The defense held Central State to just 61 passing and 118 rushing.

Tennessee State University head coach Rod Reed had an easy day of it this past Saturday as the Tigers rolled 73-6.

The offense was so explosive and the defense so dominant that Central State did little despite holding the ball much of the game (36:23). Tight end A.C. Leonard had three catches, but it was wide receiver Ryan Mitchell who enjoyed the best game among pass catchers. Mitchell had two receptions for 63 yards and two touchdowns, while adding another on a 15yard run. Kicker Jamin Godfrey didn’t have any field goal attempts, but did hit eight extra-points. The defense also had a fourth-quarter safety with about 2:27 remaining. The Tigers will return to Ohio Valley

Conference play Saturday with a game against winless Southeast Missouri at LP Field. TSU remains tied atop the OVC with Eastern Illinois at 4-1. Other than a one-yard run early in the second quarter, Central State seldom even threatened to score. TSU also limited them to zero yards in the punt and kickoff return games. The only areas of concern remain turnovers and penalties, though TSU regained two fumbles and lost only one, while suffering no interceptions. But they were penalized another nine times for 90 yards, a figure that could cost them against stronger competition down the line.

Vanderbilt Easily Wins Over UAB By Ron Wynn

The Vanderbilt Commodores quieted the critics complaining about the lack of easy wins Saturday night as they overpowered the University of Alabama-Birmingham 52-24 at Dudley Field. The Commodores had 540 yards of total offense, THIS WEEK IN with 160 of it coming from running backs Jerron SeyCOLLEGE mour and Wesley Tate.

little trouble with the UAB secondary. Matthews had eight receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown, while Krause also had four for 108 and another score. The Commodores’ had 17 second quarter points and 21 in the fourth, while only a 15-point splurge by UAB kept things from being worse. “That’s the type of play that gets fans excited and the type that we want to see become the norm around

here,” Vandy coach James Franklin said in post-game TV interviews.”I was very pleased with the team’s performance on both sides of the ball and we want to continue to improve from week to week.” Kicker Casey Spear continued to impress with his second 50-yard field goal this season, and fourth overall. He’s the first Vanderbilt kicker to make that many from 50-plus range, and has missed only one of 50 or more yards in his career. The Commodores also got another 42-yard kickoff return from freshman Darrius Sims, his second over the past two games. Defensive standouts included Javon Marshall, who had seven tackles and Darreon Herring with an interception. Another one from Sims was negated by his landing out of bounds following the catch. The Commodores only had two sacks, but kept constant pressure on UAB quarterbacks. Their number two QB Jonathan Perry led them with 155 yards. Vanderbilt has now completed the first part of its schedule with a 3-2 mark, the only disappointment being the opening game loss to Ole Miss. No one anticipated a road victory over South Carolina, who at that time was a Top 10 team and is still in the Top 25. But now the tough end of their schedule begins, with two straight SEC home contests against Missouri Saturday and Top 10 squad Georgia in two weeks. Other than Wake Forest at the end of the season, all their other foes are SEC teams and how they perform in those games will determine whether this year’s team achieves the goal of getting three straight bowl bids for the first time in school history.

Volunteers Barely Survive, Blue Raiders Lose

By Ron Wynn

The Tennessee Volunteers nearly blew a big lead but survived Saturday at home, while the Middle Tennessee State University Blue Raiders couldn’t stop Brigham Young on the ground in a Friday night road loss. Tennessee was a 20-point favorite over South Alabama in Knoxville, and for much of the game it seemed they were on their way to an easy win. But what was a 31-7 third-quarter lead turned into a near debacle after South Alabama scored 17 second half points and were driving near the end for a tying score. On fourth down with less than two minutes left, UT defensive lineman Corey Vereen blew through the South Alabama line and into the backfield. That play forced a game-ending interception and averted what could have been at minimum an overtime period. “We were eight yards from making unbelievable history,” South Alabama coach Joey Jones told the Knoxville News Sentinel. “I am proud of the way we fought; we did some great things in the second half.” UT coach Butch Jones was relieved to get the win, and complimented safety

Brian Randolph for his game-saving play. “(That play) was as big as you can imagine,” Jones said. “Unfortunately where we have been with our program, we’ve had to force a lot of true freshman to play and play early. We don’t have that luxury of just putting them on special teams and letting them gain their confidence.” One of Tennessee’s big non-freshman contributors was QB Jonathan Worley. Worley, restored to the starting position, was 20 of 36 for 204 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, he also had a pair of bad interceptions. One came into triple coverage in the end zone, another seemed a miscommunication with a receiver. After a solid first half, Worley’s second half struggles included completing only four of 12 passes. His problems and the offense’s ineffectiveness helped South Alabama get back in the game, and they closed to 31-24 with 8:55 remaining. But the Volunteer defense shut them out the rest of the game, making big plays with the game on the line. However UT knows it must play far better to have any chance at winning over the next seven game stretch of SEC opponents. They begin a three-game ordeal of facing topranked teams with a home game Satur-

Brigham Young went into their Friday matchup against MTSU without two of their best offensive players. But it didn’t seem to matter as they erased a threepoint first quarter deficit and rolled to a 37-10 win. Quarterback Taysom Hill ran for 165 yards and two touchdowns. He added another 177 in the air. The Blue Raiders’ 10-7 lead vanished after Jordan Parker was stopped for a safety early in the second quarter. Hill had a 50-yard TD run and Michael Alisa’s two-yard run made it 23-10 at halftime. J.D. Falslev’s 72-yard punt return TD followed another one-yard run from Alisa and completed the scoring. MTSU’s Landon Kilgore had a sub-par game, completing only 13 of 31 for 82 yards before being replaced in the fourth quarter. The lone bright spot was Kilgore getting his 42nd touchdown pass, a 16-yarder to Marcus Henry. He’s now number two on the MTSU list, behind only Wes Counts (50). “I love this team,” MTSU head coach

UT running back Rajion Neal enjoyed a big day against South Alabama as Tennessee held on for a 31-24 home win Saturday.

Rick Stockstill told Gannett Tennessee Monday. “There’s nothing I don’t love. This game didn’t show me anything that worries me. I thought we battled and competed against a really good football team. We competed our tails off until the end. So do I think we took a step back? No. We got beat by a team that’s better than us.” MTSU (3-2 overall) is 1-0 in Conference USA.

The New International Version of the bible says that that the widow put in two copper coins, which only amounted to a fraction a penny, and the King James Version simply refers to the money she gave as the widow’s mite. There are many ways in we can share in this woman’s experience and give the best of our service to God. I Corinthians 12 tells us that we have all been blessed with gifts from the Lord. It says that some are called to be preachers, and some to be teachers. Some are called to be doctors and some been given the gift of administration. All of us have been blessed with some talent or gift that should be used in service of the Lord in thanksgiving for what God done for us. Giving to the Lord does not necessarily involve money. True stewardship involves giving back to God a portion of every good thing that God has blessed us with. Let us continue to find a way to give the best of our service to God.

What Are You So Anxious About? Everyday Joy by Regina Prude

Regina M. Prude

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. ~ Philippians 4:6 (New International Version) Anxiety! It’s a commonly accepted illness today. Everyone is anxious. At least, everyone has anxious moments. We’re nervous, worried. Concerned about everything. We fret. We’re fearful. We choke up, feel nauseated, get migraines. can’t

sleep…all because of some real (or anticipated) trouble. David, the psalmist, was intensely familiar with anxiety. In the 139th Psalm, he expressed assurance that God saw him. God knew where David was; God knew everything he was going through. And David was certain of God’s presence. So, he said: “If I am up high or down low, asleep or awake, in darkness or in the brightness of day, God, you are there.” Yet, that same poetic voice uttered words that sprang from a troubled heart. Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. ~ Psalm 139:23 (NIV) None of us completely escapes this malady. Today, I’m taking my own medicine. I can imagine wild disappointments. Thankfully, they never materialize. I have moments, like Job, and woefully predict: What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. (Job 3:25 (NIV)

Then, make a conscious effort to exchange anxiety for peace. God’s peace passes all understanding. It is available, just for the asking. Whenever you drift into one of those moody, hand-wringing moments, stop and remember your past victories. Yesterday’s fears never arrived. Speak calming words to yourself. List God promises for joy, victory and peace. Replacing negative thoughts must be an aggressive strategy. God’s Word gives us tremendous coping skills. Take the Word, like medicine, and joy, hope and peace always win! Regina M. Prude is an inspirational speaker and author.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3 -9, 2013

Episcopal Church House of Bishops Gathered in Music City NASHVILLE, TN — The meeting began with welcomes by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Bishop John Bauerschmidt from the host Diocese of Tennessee. Slated presentations were Missional Wisdom, Bridge-Building Mission, Formation for Mission, Moving Missionally, and Moving Diagonally. In addition, the bishops discussed a range of important topics such as gun violence, and the new diocesan staff networking program On Sunday, September 22, the bishops visited churches in the area. Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori presided and preached at Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville. Among the invited guest: Bishop Suheil S. Dawani, Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem; Rabbi Steve Gutow, President and CEO of Jewish Council for Public Affairs; Dr. Elaine Heath, McCreless Professor of Evangelism at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University and co-founder of the Missional Wisdom Foundation; President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings; Bishop Gregory Palmer, Bishop of the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church; Canon David Porter, Director for Reconciliation for Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby; and representatives of the United Methodist Church. On Sunday September 22 the Bishops visited churches in the area, and had at least two opportunities to view Outreach in the Diocese of Tennessee. One group visited All Saints’ Smyrna and their mission to the Karen people. Another visited Nashville’s Church of the Holy Trinity and the Church in the Yard program. Church in the Yard is a Church service and meal serving the homeless community in downtown Nashville. It began a few years ago when a group of people, including Brett Swayne, was looking for a place to feed folks on Sunday afternoon in a way that would be off the street. Fr. Dennis Lloyd, who was then the rector of the parish, invited the group onto the Church property. Then the group asked if there might be a church service as part of the meal, and so Church in the Yard (CitY) was born. Under Fr. Bill Dennler’s leadership, the program has proceeded from strength to strength. Various different parishes – some Episcopal and some not – join in providing the meals each Sunday, always mindful of Christ’s command from Matthew 25: ”And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’”. In the photographs of the meal from last Sunday, one will see first, that the Bishops who attended sat among their congregation-for-the-day, and served the meal along with the volunteers from St. Paul’s Franklin. They counseled with the other participants, sharing God’s word and grace, and praying both supplication and thanksgiving. Other needs are addressed from time to time. Some clothes are kept for needs as they arise. Two young men were most pleased to have shirts with collars so that they could dress for job interviews this week. Others may just need shoes, because shoes wear out fast when one lives on the street. The Order of the Daughters of the King collected and provided socks at their recent Diocesan Fall Assembly. Folks who are interested in becoming involved in the ministry should call the Church at (615) 256-6359. All are welcome.
