MTA Expands Bus Service from 32,000 last year. Combined with the RTA’s regional bus and train services, more than 10 million trips were recorded in Middle Tennessee last fiscal year. Nationwide, ridership on public transportation rose 1.5% to 10.5 billion trips in 2012, the highest annual total since 2008, according to a report from the American Public Transportation Association.

As Equal Pay, Female Wages Lag, Economy Hurt

Dr. Phyllis Qualls-Brooks

NASHVILLE, TN — In 2010, women made up 51 percent of Tennessee’s population and 47 percent of its workforce while earning just 77 percent of what Tennessee men brought in annually, at the median. · Several studies, including the Economic Council’s own Wage Gap report, have shown that this gap begins as soon as women graduate and persists in nearly every sector. What’s more, the gap is shown to increase as workers grow older and advance in their careers.

· 63.9 percent of women are either primary breadwinners or co-breadwinners in their home. · Women are more likely than men to spend their wages on household purchases, childcare, and other various needs for everyday life. · Tennessee women are disproportionately represented in lower earning career fields-such as food service, health care, social services and education—and earn less than male counterparts in these fields as well.2

· Only 36 percent of the managerial occupations in Tennessee are filled by female candidates.1 “The wage gap stifles a woman’s ability to meet the needs of herself and those in her household,” says TECW Director Dr. Phyllis Qualls-Brooks, “but that’s only one part of it. We also find that women continue to be obstructed in their career paths, and are choosing or being steered into a diminished role in the workplace. This affects the entire state because

women are improving stock values and decision-making where they are able to pry their way into the board room. We are missing out on the ingenuity and diversity that a female perspective can add.” “We have had some successes, but we have a great deal more work to do,” adds TECW Chair Yvonne Wood. “Wearing red on Equal Pay Day, learning more about the wage gap, or attending a local rally are ways to help close this gap.”

YWCA Names Academy for Women of Achievement Co-chairs NASHVILLE, TN — Rita Mitchell, senior vice president and manager at longtime AWA lead sponsor First Tennessee, and Beth Fortune, vice chancellor for public affairs at Vanderbilt University and 2011 Academy for Women of Achievement honoree, have been named co-chairwomen for the YWCA of Nashville & Middle Tennessee’s 2013 Academy for Women of Achievement. The 22nd annual AWA ceremony is set for Oct. 15 at the Renaissance Hotel in Nashville. “Rita and Beth are two talented, intelligent, hardworking women who are dedicating their time and leadership to the 2013 Academy for Women of Achievement,” said Claire Gulmi,

YWCA board chairwoman and CFO of AmSurg. “We are grateful for their commitment to the mission of AWA, and I am confident their passion for the YWCA and for this community will help them create an outstanding event for 2013.” The 2013 AWA honorees will be announced following a nominations process, which kicked off March 24. Nominees include women who are involved in efforts and activities that have made a positive, sustained difference in the community. The nominations process is open to the community, and forms are available online Beth Fortune

NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) From her early elementary school days, Vicki Gardine Williams always knew she wanted to become a social worker. Seeing the plight of less fortunate people in her community, Williams felt she had to do something to help. “I had a strong desire to change the living conditions and social structure of families who lived in less affluent environments than I did,” said Williams. “I just felt that it was unfair and unjust.” What started as a dream for the U.S.

Virgin Island native, did not only become a reality but a lifelong pursuit and passion for teaching, breaking new grounds and outreach to ensure better life for her fellow human beings. These efforts over the past 38 years have garnered her awards, as well as local, state and national recognitions from her peers.

The Tennessee Tribune Lends Support to Memphis Mayor NASHVILLE, TN — Prominent friends of A.C. Wharton, Jr Tennessee politician (Democrat) and Mayor from Memphis was honored at a fundraiser coordinated by Pamela Martin at the prestigious Bone McAllester Norton PLLC Nashville Law Firm recently. Mayor Wharton was also the only African-American to serve as Mayor of Shelby County prior to his 2 term election as Memphis City Mayor. Wharton, an attorney, was born and raised in Lebanon, Tennessee. A.C. Wharton shares his name with his grandfather, father, and eldest son.

Despite some misconception, Wharton has stated that his first name is simply the letters A and C and does not stand for anything in particular. In 1980, then-Shelby County Mayor Bill Morris appointed A.C. as Chief Shelby County Public Defender, where his concern for the mentally ill in the criminal justice system gave birth to a national model program, known today as the Jericho Initiative. He chaired the county’s Jail Overcrowding Committee, which developed new ways to ease overcrowding without sacrificing public safety.

Officers Baxter and Fly Honored with Awards from Odd Fellows Association For 2011 Arrest

NASHVILLE, TN — Dedicated police work by Officer Travis Baxter that led to the arrest of two men involved in a shooting and attempted robbery on 9th Avenue South has now earned Baxter the Judge John L. Draper Joint Nashville Police Odd Fellow Award for the first half of 2011. Baxter received a $500 cash award during the recent ceremony. In the early morning hours of April 10, 2011, Officer Baxter was near 9th Avenue South and Division Street when he heard the sounds of gunshots nearby. As he drove to investigate, a car fled away from the area at more than twice the speed limit. Officer Baxter activated his emergency equipment in an effort to stop the car for the traffic violation. The driver ultimately pulled over on Wedgewood Avenue. Subsequent investigation revealed the two occupants were involved in the shooting and attempted robbery of a victim at 9th Avenue South and Gleaves Avenue. The gun used was recovered in the path of the vehicle’s flight from the scene. The passenger

was later convicted of attempted murder, robbery and assault charges. The driver was convicted of robbery counts and speeding. Both received multi-year prison sentences. Other Odd Fellow Award nominees for the first half of 2011 were Officers Steven Bowers, Pedro Robles, Daniel Bowling, Jeff Moseley, Clifton Huffmaster, Sam Johnson and Burl Johnson.

Odd Fellow Award for Second Half of 2011 A traffic stop of a man for not wearing his seatbelt in South Nashville snowballed into a federal Hobbs Act robbery case and has now earned Officer Jerre Fly the Judge John L. Draper Joint Nashville Police Odd Fellow Award for the second half of 2011. Fly also received a $500 cash award recently at the ceremony.

On the night of August 10, 2011, Officer Fly stopped a car on Apache Trail at Haywood Lane after observing the seatbelt violation. During a consent search, a semiautomatic pistol and a small bag of marijuana were recovered from the vehicle. Officer Fly believed the driver to be a member of the Asian Pride Gang and called the police department’s Gang Unit to the scene. The ensuing investigation led to the federal indictment of the driver and several other persons for violent home invasion robberies in Rutherford and Smith Counties. The driver was also convicted of failing to wear a seatbelt as the result of Officer Fly’s stop. Other Odd Fellow Award nominees for the second half of 2011 were Officers Rick Martin, John Gilpin, Jonathan Frith, Robert Simmons and Brett Kenney. For 52 years, Nashville’s Odd Fellows Association has sponsored this award, which is given twice a year to an officer below the rank of lieutenant who makes an arrest of a person already wanted, or who makes a criminal case based on the original citing of a traffic law violator.

IRS Answers Common Questions for Last Minute Filers

son or excuse but has to be filed by April 15. The IRS offered answers to questions often asked by those who have waited until now to file. 1. How can I get an extension? You’ll need to complete and file Form 4868 no later than April 15 to get an extra six months to file. Remember that filing an extension doesn’t give you more time to pay taxes due, it gives you more time to complete your tax return. And it allows you to avoid the late filing penalty. IRS offers free electronic extensions through the Free File program at IRS.gov. 2. If I owe taxes and can’t pay the full amount, should I wait to file until I can pay in full? No. If you wait past April 15, you’ll be charged a late filing penalty based on the amount you owe. Avoid that penalty by filing either your tax return or an extension form by April 15. Pay as much as you can with the return or extension to help reduce late the payment penalty and NASHVILLE - With just days to go before the tax filing deadline, the IRS reminded Tennessee taxpay- interest charges. 3. Can I set up a payment plan with the IRS? Yes. ers to file either a tax return or an extension request The IRS offers short-term extensions of time to pay by April 15. “Missing the tax deadline can be costly,” said IRS up to 120 days, monthly payment plans, and other spokesman Dan Boone. “But taxpayers can easily types of agreements. If you owe less than $50,000, you avoid or reduce the penalties by taking action no later can apply online at IRS.gov using the Online Payment Agreement (OPA) application.

An extension request requires no rea4. If I owe taxes, is there any reason for me to e-file?

Yes. First, last-minute filers usually make the most mistakes, and using tax software and e-filing can greatly reduce errors. Second, e-filing offers confirmation that the IRS got your return. Plus e-filing is free for most filers through the IRS Free File program. If you’re wanting to hold your payment until the last minute, you can go ahead and e-file now and authorize a payment for April 15. 5. How do I know if I even need to file? Your requirement to file depends on the type and amount of income you received in 2012. Your age and filing status also matter. Remember, too, that even if you’re not legally required to file, you may want to file in order to claim a refund of taxes withheld or to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit, a credit for low- to middle-income workers. Use the Interactive Tax Assistant at IRS.gov to help determine if you should file or not. 6. Where can I get help filing? Filing help is still available at many free community help sites staffed by IRS-certified volunteers. Filers whose household income was less than $51,000 or who are age 60 or older usually qualify for help at these sites. Call 1-800-906-9887 to find the hours and location of the closest help site. Do-it-yourself filers can visit www.irs.gov and use one of the IRS Free File options to prepare and file their own taxes.

LETTERS TO EDITOR Dear Editor: Your readers makes a difference in Washington, D.C. How do we know this? Despite partisan disputes and grandstanding on the steps of the Capitol, Congress continues to fund critical medical research through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program including the Prostate Cancer Research Program. Without the work of this program, treatments like ZYTIGA, XTANDI, XGEVA would still be navigating the final stages of clinical trials instead of being prescribed by doctors and helping prostate cancer patients everyday. Other successes of the program include better detection techniques, improved treatment delivery using nanoparticles, and the use of imaging for more accurate biopsies. The strength of the program is in its ability to react quickly to meet the needs of the patient community. If research emerges to address a particular area of need for prostate cancer patients, the PCRP can act more quickly than the

National Institutes of Health (NIH) to ensure that the research is translated into treatments. In fact, the PCRP seeks out novel and innovative research that can potentially yield greater rewards for the community. However, this program is endangered every year because it requires the renewed support of your elected officials to ensure funding is provided. Since 1996, ZERO has alerted you and kept you up to date about what happens on Capitol Hill, and for all of those years, passionate and dedicated advocates like yourself have answered our call. Five minutes of your time today could mean another new treatment, a better test to diagnose prostate cancer, and in the future, a cure for this horrible disease. Don’t wait – we need your voice NOW. Write your representative today! Sincerely, Kevin Johnson, SVP, Government Relations and Advocacy Washington, D.C.

Inaugural Breakfast of Men at LP Field This Saturday By A.J. Dugger III

The Parent Alliance Group (PAG) of Montgomery Bell Academy (MBA) will host their Inaugural Breakfast of Men on Saturday April, 13 2013 at the LP Field, East Club. The event is sponsored by Porter-Walker LLC, Anthony and Dr. Rose Payne-Hall. MBA is an all-male college prep school featuring grades 7-12. In 2009, P.A.G. was founded by M.B.A’s Office of Admissions, staff, faculty and minority parents to support the boys of M.B.A by presenting opportunities for them to become project leaders for service projects and exposing them to accomplished men in the community. The upcoming breakfast is one of these examples, as the event will feature three notable speakers from different parts of the state. Each speaker will educate the boys on how they overcame adversities and “barriers of entry” on their pathway to success as African American men. “One of the things P.A.G. wants to do, in addition to our community service

Goodwill, Red Cross Partnership

l-r, David Kitchen, Chief Emergency Services Officer for the American Red Cross, Tennessee Volunteer Region,Joel Sullivan, Regional CEO of the American Red Cross, Tennessee Volunteer Region,David Lifsey, President/CEO of Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee, Inc, and Natisha Moultry, Special Projects Manager for Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee, Inc.

NASHVILLE, TN — The Tennessee Volunteer Region of the American Red Cross and Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee’s Goodwill Cares program announced today that the two organizations have formed a unique partnership that will allow both nonprofits to better serve the community during a crisis. “Last year, our National Headquarters challenged all of the Red Cross Chapters across the country to form partnerships with their local Goodwill offices in order to direct donations of physical goods to their organization in times of disaster,” said Red Cross Regional CEO, Joel Sullivan. “We immediately reached out to Goodwill and reconnected over our shared response effort following the Murfreesboro tornadoes a few years before, and established an official agreement on how we

will work together during times of disaster, in order to better utilize donated funds and material goods from the community.” The Red Cross helps those who have been affected by disasters and, while the organization provides assistance including shelter, the Red Cross is not able to accept donations of clothing or household goods, due to limited resources available internally to sort, store and distribute donated items. The new partnership with the Goodwill Cares program will change that. When a disaster takes place, a Goodwill donation truck will be placed at the disaster relief site. In exchange for the donations, Red Cross will be provided Goodwill Cares gift cards which will be given to their clients who have suffered a loss. Those Goodwill Cares gift cards can be used at any Goodwill store in Mid-

dle Tennessee. “Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee, Inc. is pleased to be able to partner with the Red Cross in times of disaster to assist our neighbors and friends in times of disaster,” says David Lifsey, President/ CEO of Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee, Inc. “Our partnership will allow each of our agencies to utilize our strengths and expertise to facilitate prompt assistance.” Disasters create a wide range of emergency needs, more than any one organization can meet. It takes a large network of people and systems to ensure that communities and individuals get all the help they need during and after a disaster. While one organization can’t meet every need, a partnership like this one can help the Red Cross and Goodwill better serve those who are going through a difficult time.

issues they faced along the way as African Americans and identify potential roadblocks that young boys will face, particularly as they grow and advance through their careers as African American men. The Breakfast of Men will be a biannual event with a steady flow of minority speakers and leaders coming onto our campus to discuss these important life lessons and life skills.” One of the speakers at the breakfast will be Douglas C. Veneable, president and CEO of Porter-Walker, LLC. Veneable’s son graduated from MBA and is having tremendous success in college and in the community where he is in attendance. Also scheduled to speak at the event is Andre Gist, president and CEO of Manufactures Industrial Group, LLC and MIG Construction Services. Gist has the largest African American-owned business in Tennessee. The final speaker will be David Williams, Athletics Director and Vice Chancellor of Vanderbilt University. Williams is also a professor

of law, and will give the boys tips on how to excel in both sports and education. P.A.G. believes that highlighting accomplished minority role models will provide a positive outlook to the students and demonstrate that excellence, a strong work ethic and discipline have no color barriers. “Taking a ‘boys to men’ approach should have a great impact on the students,” said Curry, who also explained that mentoring, education, networking and access are invaluable and essential to young minorities. “The overall mission is to talk to our boys about life skills and overcoming boundaries.” The Breakfast of Men begins at 7:15 a.m. and will conclude at 9:30 a.m. For more information, visit the MBA and PAG website at https://www. montgomerybell.edu/podium/default. aspx?t=171210&rc=1.

‘Out & About’ Spotlights Rev. Joseph A. Blas By Dr. Harriette Bias-Insignares Poet Laureate

You never know who you’re going to run into as you move out and about our town. Sometimes the highlight of your day is just a few steps away in the mailbox. Such was the case recently when collecting my mail. I found an article from Tulsa People Magazine featuring my brother and former Nashvillian, Rev. Joseph A. Bias. He serves as Minister of Music and Worship at the First United Methodist Church of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Not only did the article remind me of his numerous accomplishments, it also reminded me of a childhood experience we shared. It was the day we met and had dinner with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, at the home of a mutual family friend. The conversation we had with Dr. King left an indelible mark on both of us. He talked to us about the importance of attending college, the mission of the civil rights movement, some wisdom from life lessons he learned, how to face the future with success, and our responsibility to future generations to always do our best. Dr. King had come to our hometown, Savannah Georgia, to speak at the Sunday Mass Meeting. I was often called upon to be the soloist at the Mass Meetings. Such was the case that allowed my brother and me to be the only youth at dinner with Dr. King. In looking back at those meetings in the 1950s and 60s, I realized I was in great company that included other Mass Meeting soloists, Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin, The Ward Sisters, Sister Rosetta Thorpe, The Staple Singers, Juanita Gilbert, and Angeline Butler to name a few. I am honored to salute my brother, a graduate of Morehouse College, who is founder of the Crescendo Music Awards that have served over 800 high school and college students over the past 14 years with awards totaling more than $375,000. Bias’ many musical achievements include performing as a 2006 Oklahoma Jazz Hall Of Fame Inductee, a soloist for the Billy Graham Crusades,

premiering in the Ragtime Opera “Treemonisha” in the role of the conjurer, and being a charter member of the Atlanta Symphony Chamber Chorus under famed conductor Dr. Robert Shaw of the Robert Shaw Chorale among other performances. In addition, he had the honor

of being the soloist during the telecast of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s funeral singing the Negro Spiritual “Balm In Gilead” with the acclaimed Morehouse Glee Club. Bias’ television show, called “I Choose Life,” was aired on the Trinity Broadcasting Network and is still be-

ing broadcast in various countries. A baritone soloist and graduate of the Eastman School Of Music in Rochester, NY., Bias’ music is available for preview and download at josephbiasministries.org. The Tulsa article is reprinted here. See you out and about.

SUBSCRIPTION FORM Making the Ask - Part II Fundraising provides nonprofits with the money they need to deliver on their missions. When you ask others to join you in giving you become part of the nonprofit’s success team. In part one of this series we discussed how to prepare to solicit a gift. In this column we cover setting the appointment and what to say when asking. Here’s what we believe: asking for a gift should be done in person whenever possible. Make an appointment to talk with your colleague, family member or friend about giving. Let’s use an example of asking Jesse for a gift. “Jesse, would you have time to meet with me about All In For Children? I am committed to working with them to raise money for their new programs and I want to share that information with you and explore how you would like to be involved.” All you want from the conversation is a time to meet. If Jesse says, “Oh, we don’t have to meet. Put me down for $100,” you can respond with, “I understand. Would you make some time for me just the same? You might want to give even more after we talk!” Keep the conversation light, but get that appointment. As you prepare for your meeting, make sure you have brochures or online information you can share. Practice your presentation. You will want to talk about the organization’s history, current activities and vision for the future. You will also want to cover what specifically you

are raising money for and how the money will be used. Be prepared to communicate using emotion and facts. Talk about what the organization means to you and why you are involved. During the solicitation be sure to ask for a specific, reasonable and challenging gift. Know the amount you will ask for. It shouldn’t be too small an amount, nor too large. Remember to talk about the gift you made. If your gift is similar to what you would like your prospect to give, state the amount you gave and why. Always remember to make the ask. Be very clear and specific when asking: “Jesse, I would like for you to make a gift to All In For Children. Would you be willing to contribute $___?” Pause after you ask for the gift. Do not rush to fill the silence. Give Jesse time to respond, for he will. If he says “yes”, thank him and ask how he would like to make his gift. If he says “no”, ask what would be the right amount at this time. If Jesse says this is not the right time, ask what would be a good time. Regardless of the outcome, thank him for his time. After the meeting, send a thank you note. You can do it! Your nonprofit depends on you.

Film Makers Ken & Sarah Burns Insights on The Central Park Five Documentary

By Janice Malone THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE, a new film from award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, will air on April 16, 2013, 8–10 p.m. Nashville time on WPNT-TV. The film tells the story of the five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem who were wrongly convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park in 1989. Directed and produced by Burns, David McMahon and Sarah Burns, the film chronicles the Central Park Jogger case, for the first time from the perspective of the five teenagers whose lives were upended by this miscarriage of justice. The five served their complete sentences, between 6 and 13 years, before another man, serial rapist Matias Reyes, admitted to the crime, and DNA testing supported his confession. In 2002, based upon Matias Reyes’s confession, a judge vacated the original convictions of the Central Park Five. A year later, the men filed civil lawsuits against the City of New York, and the police officers and prosecutors who had worked toward their conviction. That lawsuit remains unresolved. The day after the Central Park Five film’s broadcast, on April 17, from 5:30 – 7:00 pm Nashville time, viewers will have an opportunity to continue the conversation with “Justice and The Central Park Five,” a live TimesTalks discussion hosted by The New York Times. Participants will include Ken and Sarah Burns, Jim Dwyer, the New York Times columnist who covered the Central Park Jogger case and is featured in the film, and the five exonerated men. The event will be streamed live online at nytimes. com/cityroom Follow the conversation on Twitter using #cp5. The full film will also be streamed online at http://video.pbs.org/ through May 1, 2013. The Tennessee Tribune was granted the opportunity to speak exclusively with film makers Ken Burns and his daughter Sarah, about the making of their latest film THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE. TRIBUNE: Sarah in 2011 you wrote the book “The Central Park Five: A Chronicle of a City Wilding,” that was based on the Central Park Five incident. What came first for you, writing the book or doing the film? S.BURNS: “The book came first. I first learned about this story back in 2003. I was too young to know and understand the full details about the case when it first happened back in 1989. When I learned about the case and the story I was a college student. I ended up writing my undergraduate

Father/daughter film making team Ken and Sarah Burns pose after recent screening of The Central Park Five

thesis about the case. So I’ve been working on telling this story for a decade now. After school, I then started working on the book, which was released in 2011. After the book we then started on the film. It’s such an important film because allows us to interview the Central Park 5 men and let the audience get to know them as individuals.” TRIBUNE: Ken your film’s been in the news quite a lot within recent weeks regarding the court triumph that you guys won for not having to turn over the outtakes of your film to the authorities. Share with us the details on this. K. BURNS: “In 2003 the Central Park Five launched a civil suit against the city of New York. The process of settling that suit has been lengthy and drawn out for almost a decade. We became involved when the city requested that we give them our film outtakes and notes. It’s sort of ironic that we spent many years trying to get police and prosecutors to comment for our film, which they always refused and would often not return our calls. But now all of a sudden they’re claiming this kind of bias to our film and their right to see what else we have—a real kind of ‘fishing’ expedition of sorts. But fortunately a judge did not see it their way and squashed the subpoena. The city of New York has now appealed that move, so we don’t know how long this process will continue. Our desire is not to have things distracted by the immediate things that were happening with this ordeal but to keep the focus on what’s been happening with the young men from the Central Park Five and this incredible saga in which they’ve experienced of 13 years of justice that’s been obviously denied and now another 10 years of justice delayed with this civil suit..” We have no stake in what the settlement might be at all. We want to see the completion of all of this. We just think it will be good for the city of New York, the prosecutors, and the police who made

the errors, to admit it. Sort of like a truth in reconciliation of what they’ve done, and by doing so it helps all of us as citizens.” TRIBUNE: This was a very painful film to watch at times. What were some of the challenges that you guys faced as film makers when doing this project? K. BURNS: “This film was particularly sensitive, in large part because the film is so difficult. It is so painful, in large part because as you’re watching all of the different moments when they could’ve found out something else. They could have entertained an alternative narrative; they could have walked the DNA over from that case to this case and certainly found the boys were exonerated without having to go into jail for 13 years. So for us as film makers it was just trying to tell the facts. We just wanted to try to make sure that we were as journalistically pure. There’s no narration in this film, which is rare with the films we’ve made. We’ve permitted the story to just unfold by bringing out two fundamental questions: How could something like this happen? And who are these five who were denied a voice during the original proceedings? They needed to be given or allowed to speak and express themselves years later. I’ll let Sarah add to this as well.” S. BURNS: “I would say the one of the biggest challenges as far as the process was the fact that several times we asked the police and prosecutors that were involved in the case to give us some interviews, as my dad mentioned earlier. They always refused. We had hoped to be able to represent their perspective from these interviews. Since we couldn’t do that, we were then faced with the challenge of trying to find their perspective on this case elsewhere.” TRIBUNE: Many who have seen The Central Park Five film have said the film should be required viewing in schools, especially law schools, by students of all races. Will the film be shown in various

schools? K. BURNS: “Yes, that will happen. Thanks to our relationship with PBS have always had a robust educational outreach. The sheer demand of interest about this film has kept us out on the road promoting it. We, along with members of the Central Park Five, recently made an appearance at Harvard Law School, where we had an overflow crowd. The Central Park Five young men have also made appearances to speak at various schools as well.” TRIBUNE: A few years ago the woman who was assaulted and raped in this case, Trisha Meili (known to many as the Central Park jogger) wrote the book, I Am the Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility. Did you guys speak with her during the making of this film? S. BURNS: “We reached out and spoke to her in the early stages of making the film, and asked her would she grant us an interview? I think we all understand on why she declined. We don’t know if she’s seen the film or made any comments about it at this time.” TRIBUNE: Unfortunately, this is reality and this story really has no happy ending for everyone concerned. K.BURNS: “It may take a long time for this to have a socalled happy ending. In 1989, to be a member of the Central Park Five was to be among the most hated and reviled human beings on earth. But by 2002, when their convictions were vacated, to be a member of the Central Park Five was to be in a kind of limbo situation. Some people thought they got off on a technicality and weren’t quite sure what really happened. But over the course of the 10 years as we’ve gotten to know these young men and as they’ve had the chance to find and express their voice, to me, these young men are now in a heroic number. They’re a group of young people who’ve faced adversity with affirmation. Even though they still suffer from some of the pain, they’ve managed to transcend some of it. But nonthe-less they’re exemplars. One hopes that eventually, with resolution that a happy ending will finally come. But unfortunately, they will of course never be able to reclaim the childhood that was stolen from them.” Tune in to Film Festival Radio Show To hear the complete exclusive interview of Ken and Sarah Burns on Friday (April 12th) at 6:00pm.

music icon in conert this weekend

Aaron Neville

By Janice Malone

The historic War Memorial Auditorium in downtown Nashville will be THE place to be this weekend to enjoy some of entertainment’s most enduring and successful bands and singers of all time. Legendary soul/funk band Tower of Power will be in concert April 12th followed by a show from multiple Grammy Award-winning recording icon Aaron Neville on April 14th. Neville, an R&B soul legend, comes to Music City as part of his national tour in support of his current new cd MY TRUE STORY. The album, produced by Blue Note Records President Don Was and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, who also contributes his signature guitar work throughout the album—is also one of the most personal projects that Neville has ever created. With this new

release, Neville is revitalizing some of his favorite songs from the doo-wop era that have become the core foundation for all of the remarkable music he’s created over the last five decades. My True Story, the artist’s first Blue Note Records release, represents a landmark in Aaron Neville’s career. It’s his highest-charting album to date, as well as his first-ever Top 10 album. “It’s been a great experience being a part of the Blue Note family. They’ve really shown a lot of love and support for this project,” says Neville during a recent telephone interview. MY TRUE STORY represents a culmination of Aaron Neville’s incredible career, which has seen him move seamlessly back and forth between solo work and his role in the first family of New Orleans music -- the Neville Brothers. “I think the public has really embraced this latest album because it’s obvious that I’m really having a good time doing this music on this particular project. I’ve incorporated the new songs, with other music I’ve been doing over the years and fans seem to love it. These songs helped to mold me into who I am,” reflects Aaron. “They’re all dear to my heart, and they rode with me, in my bones, through all these years,” he adds. Neville once lived here in Nashville but now calls New York City home. “Just like my hometown of New Orleans, Nashville is also a great city for music and a great place to live. I really enjoyed living there but now for mostly business reasons, I’m living in NYC.” Aaron Neville’s first hit single was the landmark “Tell It Like It Is,” which held the Number One spot on the R&B charts for five weeks in 1967. He went on to win Grammy

Awards for his triple-platinum 1989 collaboration with Linda Ronstadt Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, and reached the Country charts with the title track of 1993’s The Grand Tour. A member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, his most recent project was the gospel album I Know I’ve Been Changed in 2010. Neville is certainly no stranger to awards and accolades. Earlier this year (January) Neville was honored by the Grammy Museum, which celebrated his career with an intimate discussion and performance hosted by Grammy Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. “That was a really cool event,” recalls Aaron. “I’ve been involved with the Grammy Awards organization in some form or another long before I ever even received my first Grammy. They really do respect me and my music and that’s such a great feeling to be respected by your peers like that.” Mr. Neville’s current Spring/Summer tour features his five-piece band, which features his brother Charles Neville on saxophone. Other upcoming performances include headlining slots at such prestigious festivals as the Tri-C Jazz Fest in Cleveland, the Houston International Festival and his hometown’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, an event with which Neville has a deep and longstanding association. He says, “That’s such a great honor for me to perform at this historical event in front of the hometown crowd. I’m inviting Nashville fans to come out to the concert. If they enjoy that show, then I hope they’ll come down to the Jazz & Heritage Festival for even more fun too.”

It’s Classic/Funk/Soul With

Tower of Power & War This Weekend By Janice Malone

If the War Memorial Auditorium didn’t already have enough great jamming music from the upcoming Aaron Neville concert this weekend (April 14th), the old school funk party music of Tower of Power and War will also be packing out the seats this weekend at the War Memorial Auditorium (April 12th). But for those who can’t wait to get your dance on at the concert, check out the fun new TV ad from Amazon that features Tower of Power’s smash hit single “What is Hip?” on You Tube. Teaming up with Amazon seemed like a natural fit for both parties, as they both have one monumental characteristic in common: they continue to define generations of music lovers and consumers alike. Tower of Power band leader Emilio Castillo says: “What is hip??? The only answer I can give is, of course, Amazon.” Emilio says this show is sure to be one for the record books. Starting next month the Tower of Power/War tour will take a turn from funky to funny, as they add the craziness of one of entertainment’s funniest comedy duos Cheech & Chong. “WAR and TOWER OF POWER is always a great show but add CHEECH & CHONG to the mix and it’s gonna be a smokin’ good time,” says Emilio. “Back in the 1970’s we all toured together and the shows were sold out. It was electric! I hadn’t seen Cheech & Chong since those years until recently, when I ran into them and War’s Lonnie Jordan at a TV pledge drive event in L.A.” According to funny man Tommy Chong, this year’s tour will celebrate history making of a different kind. “The ‘Up in Smoke’ gig with WAR and TOWER OF POWER will be a celebration of the legalization of our right to party all night long,” he says. Celebrating more than 40 years of success and original “Oakland

style” soul music, TOWER OF POWER’s hits include “You’re Still A Young Man,” “So Very Hard To Go,” “Soul With a Capital S,” “Soul Vaccination,” “What Is Hip?” and “Don’t Change Horses (In The Middle Of A Stream).” Known for its world famous horns, TOWER OF POWER’s sound is in a class of its own. The group has teamed with some of music’s biggest names including Elton John, Sam Moore, Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Dionne Warwick, Aaron Neville, Aerosmith, Michael Bolton, Rod Stewart and more. The internationally acclaimed act has released over 20 albums and continues to generate packed concert crowds and rave reviews from all over the world. In addition to continuing to make great music and touring, Emilio finds a little time to watch some television with his family. He readily admits he doesn’t have the time to watch very many of the big juggernaut TV talent shows but he does like NBC’s mega-hit show The Voice. “My kids watch this show a lot and I must admit that I’m very impressed with the different singing styles the show presents. It’s good to see how com-

mitted these contestants are to real singing these days. Throughout my career I’ve been about great singing talent…Now as far as if I would’ve done one of these shows back in my day, probably not. I’ve always been the guy who loved being part of a band.” After 40 years in music and over 20-plus albums, some of music’s A-list of bands, singers and groups have either worked with or recorded the music of Tower of Power. But when it comes to listening to music in his personal time, Emilio continues to remain close to his musical roots. He says, “I still love the great classic singers: Gladys Knight, Johnnie Taylor, Ronald Isley, Philippe Wynn (The Spinners). I’m also a Christian now, and I like to listen to a lot of today’s gospel praise music from artists like Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, Smokie Norful, Deitrick Haddon. But also over the last 5 years I’ve gotten into the music of Alison Krauss and Union Station. I saw them perform on a TV special and their music reminded me so much of Tower of Power. Such great music!” (www.towerofpower. com)

TERRI’S REVIEW “Friends & Foes”

KAM’S KOLUMN “42” Interview With Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford chats about his role in the new biopic film 42

Terri Schlichenmeyer

By Terri Schlichenmeyer

Not in a hundred years. There was just no way. From the minute you saw her, you knew everything you needed to know about that woman. She was a schemer, she was ghetto, she was the worst kind of liar, and a friendship between the two of you was Not. Going. To. Happen. In a hundred years. Famous last words, huh? Because you got to know her a little and danged if she wasn’t okay after all. But can she be trusted? As you’ll see in the new novel “Friends & Foes” by ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray, that’s up for discussion. Rachel Jackson Adams was absolutely giddy. Her husband, Lester, had recently snatched the presidency of the American Baptist Coalition from Hosea Bush in a big election, and it was Rachel’s finest moment. Being First Lady of the ABC was what she’d wanted for ages. That, and squashing Jasmine Bush into the ground. Whenever she thought about Rachel Adams, Jasmine Bush just rolled her eyes. Rachel was backwoods and everybody knew it. She wasn’t very bright, either, which made it easy for Jasmine to get the better of the heffa. Take, for instance, that election. Jasmine had rigged it so that Lester Adams would win because she knew about some illegal activity going on with Pastor Earl Griffith and the ABC. If Lester was president, then he and Rachel would look guilty by association. If they got arrested, then Hosea could swoop in and take over the ABC. That was what Jasmine had on her mind when she was scheduled to be on

Oprah to talk about her non-profit organization. But then Rachel got her nose in and made a mess, which became an even bigger mess when she found Pastor Griffiths dead in his hotel room. Not knowing quite what to do, Rachel dragged Jasmine back to the room but the body was gone! That was just fine with Jasmine. Maybe even better, because it made Rachel look like a psycho. But when Rachel panicked and Jasmine fell deeper into the situation, she had to admit that maybe Rachel wasn’t all that bad. They’d never be friends, but frenemies might be able to figure out what was going on… I wasn’t all that thrilled with “Friends & Foes” when I first got it. I’m tired of novels where Christian ladies act UNChristianlike; I’ve had too many of them. I wasn’t sure I could finish this book – but I’m very, very glad I did. Authors ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray made me laugh in what turns out to be a rompy mystery with plenty of comedy and no profanity. Though I had a bumpy start, I ended up really enjoying this book and its characters, and I can’t wait for the next installment. If you’re looking for something that’s silly in a good way, give this book a try.

RYCH’S CORNER

Chadwick Boseman Plays Jackie Robinson

By Rych McCain

Every year during the major league baseball season, April 15 is Jackie Robinson Day and all of the players from every team wear number 42. People make great speeches, honors are given and the entire atmosphere throughout the ball parks across America is that of a revival. Blacks rejoice that the color line of baseball has been broken and decent Whites are ashamed and embarrassed to be confronted and reminded about just how blatant and harmful to humanity the open racism from their red-neck counterparts was in 1947. In the mist of all of the hoopla and hope for a better tomorrow, very few people of today’s generation actually don’t know who Jackie Robinson was or what his sacrifice really meant not only to baseball, but to the entire social fabric of America and all of sports. Robinson’s accomplishment with the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers actually opened the door for Blacks to enter the NBA, NFL and other sports. The movie 42 is a re-enactment of Robinson’s years up to the 1947 baseball season. Robinson is brilliantly played by Chadwick Boseman and gorgeous actress Nicole Beharie shines just as bright portraying Robinson’s widow Rachel. Harrison Ford may be up for a supporting actor Oscar nod as maverick, trailblazing Brooklyn Dodger GM Branch Rickey. Actor Andre Holland will introduce and bring to the forefront Wendell Smith and how significant the1940’s Black sports writer was to Mr. Robinson. Holland acted as a guide to help him through the fire but also his role with breaking the color line in journalism, by being the first African-American sports writer admitted to the Baseball Writers Association. What was Boseman’s assessment of Jackie Robinson the man after getting the role and preparing to play him? He smiles and says, “Jackie Robinson was a

Pasadena and national sports legend before this moment. I think that’s one of the things I learned about him that I did not know. He was better at football and was a Hall of Fame football player, led his basketball conference in scoring and broke his brother Mack’s record in the triple jump at UCLA. So he was already athletically great. Plus, he was court martial in the military for not giving up his seat to a White and won the case. Actually, that’s a movie within itself. So his legend before he ever reached this moment was amazing. When the question is asked would there have been a Jackie Robinson? To me it’s the idea of breaking the color barrier more so than the person and thank God it was somebody who could not only play baseball but could handle the pressure on the field, the politics and the social responsibility.” Other than this film depicting the trials and tribulations of Robinson breaking the color line, what impressed Boseman the most about the script? Without hesitation he quipped, “It’s a love story. I realized that I had not seen two Black people in love in a major motion picture. It’s crazy! I’ve never seen it before. I’m talking about Warner Brothers, billboards going up, trailers on TV and online. I have never in my lifetime seen this.

Born in Chicago on July 13, 1942, Harrison Ford was a late bloomer who only developed an interest in acting during his senior year of college. After graduation, he moved to Los Angeles where he worked as carpenter for almost a decade while struggling trying to launch his showbiz career. He was finally discovered in 1973 while installing cabinets in the home of George Lucas. The director cast him in American Graffiti, which in turn, led to his landing the iconic character Hans Solo in Star Wars, and the rest, as they say, is cinematic history. Ford went on to play the title role in the Indiana Jones franchise, and to make memorable outings in such hit movies as The Fugitive, Witness, Air Force One, What Lies Beneath, Presumed Innocent, Blade Runner, Frantic, Apocalypse Now and Clear and Present Danger, to name a few. Here, the Oscar-nominated thespian (for Witness) talks about his latest outing opposite Chad Boseman as Brooklyn Dodgers’ general manager Branch Rickey in 42, a biopic about Jackie Robinson’s breaking the color barrier in baseball. KW: I was moved to tears several times by the movie. If 42 were released in December, I’m sure you’d be a shooin for another Oscar nomination. HF: Again, you’re very kind. Thank you. I credit the wonderful material. It was very well-crafted, well-written and welldirected. I was very pleased to have the opportunity to be involved with the project. KW: Why did you decide to play Branch Rickey? HF: First of all, I read what I thought was an amazing script with very high standards, telling an important story with a character for me to play who was colorful and dramatic and different from any I’d ever played before, and with a director [Brian Helgeland] I admired who had written this wonderful script. So, I had a multitude of reasons to want to do this character. I also saw this project as an opportunity to fully ascend to the rank of the noble calling of character actor. I thought that I could best serve the film by not bringing any of the audience’s history with Harrison Ford into the scene. So, I did everything I could to create a character that truly resembled and was attendant to the real-life Branch Rickey. KW: Kate Newell asks: How did it

The great Jackie Robinson says hello to columnist Kam Williams when he was just a little fella back in the 1950’s

feel shooting on location at some of those venerable, old baseball stadiums? HF: To tell you the truth, I didn’t pay much notice because in many cases the stadiums were recreated through computer graphics after the fact. We really only had the first ten rows, and the rest was added during post-production. The places where we shot were not historical or so impressive. But given that this film takes place over sixty years ago, it’s amazing how much different the world was back then. It’s seen so many changes in a relatively short period of time. KW: Editor/Legist Patricia Turnier says: I am honored to ask you a question because I have admired your work since I was a child. Jackie Robinson is special to me because his minor league career began in my hometown, Montreal. What does his legacy mean to you? HF: This is a country which has always proclaimed itself to be founded on and to be pursuing high ideals. I believe that the racial injustice which existed such a short time ago probably would have persisted longer if the color barrier had not been broken in baseball, since the Civil Rights Movement might not have blossomed when it did, had it not been preceded by Jackie Robinson’s joining the Dodgers. You have to remember that baseball really was the American pastime in the Forties, not football, basketball or any other sport. Baseball was a metaphor for America, both here and in terms of how it was understood by the rest of the world. So, the legacy of Jackie Robinson and the part he played in this very important chapter of our history is very compelling and very meaningful to me personally. KW: My father took a photo of me with Jackie when I was a kid in the Fifties, and I kept that picture on my bureau my entire childhood.

MTA Continued from page 1A of driving. Although the public’s attention has been on such high profile MTA projects as the East West Connector Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, which will operate in some of the city’s more middle and upper income areas, the region’s working poor are depending on public transportation more than ever before to carry them to their jobs and across the region. According to the United States Department of Transportation, the working poor, those with an annual personal income less than $8,000, spend nearly 10 percent of their income on commuting expenses, more than twice the 4 percent figure for the total population. The disparity grows to five times higher when compared to the 2 percent figure for workers earning $45,000 or more per year. Additionally the working poor who use their own vehicle to commute to work spent 21 percent of their income on commuting, while those who took public transportation spent 13 percent. MTA has responded to the need for increased services by adding and enhancing bus lines across the region and in North Nashville including one route, which eliminates the need to travel downtown for connections to the city’s transit system according to Patricia Harris-Morehead, MTA director of communications & marketing. “Nashville, like many cities in the south does not have a grid street pattern and because of that, our transit system developed into a hub and spoke system,” explained Harris-Morehead who has served in her position for more than 10 years. “Prior to our current CEO arriving more than 11 years ago, we were severely underfunded and operating like a small mom-and-pop business, but all that has changed. We have introduced connector services that preclude traveling downtown and a number of other new routes.” For example, last August Route 21 or the University Connector began providing a new cross-town service connecting six universities including Tennessee State University, Meharry Medical College, Fisk University, Vanderbilt University, Belmont University and Lipscomb University. Buses travel via the 28th/31stAvenue Bridge every 30 to 60 minutes on weekdays and hourly on weekends. It provides transfer points to 10 MTA bus routes. It is the growing system’s fourth connector route. Additionally Route 29 on Jefferson Street has been expanded with more frequent service during rush hours and added hourly night service to downtown on weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. This month MTA added a second BRT lite service on Murfreesboro Pike where new 60-ft hybrid buses will operate every 15 minutes on weekdays. The new service operates along the system’s second busiest corridor from downtown’s Music City Central to the Hickory Hollow area. Passengers using this service will arrive to destinations faster due to fewer stops along the way and more frequent buses. However, in spite of these

measures, last week state Representative Brenda Gilmore, who represents North Nashville said a lawsuit against the city was, “certainly an option” if MTA officials choose not to modify the East-West Connector BRT to include service to North Nashville. “North Nashville has just been neglected,” she told the Tennessean. “It’s pretty clear that wherever BRT has gone across the nation, businesses, housing and amenities have sprung up immediately. We would like to see some of that wealth spread.” Gilmore, who plans to discuss the matter with Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, said any lawsuit from the group would have an “economic disparity” focus and referred to a lawsuit in Los Angeles that readjusted a BRT line to include a low-income neighborhood there. Gilmore says 40 percent of people in North Nashville depend on the bus and said the Nashville Leadership Council wants “at least” a BRT stop at 28th and Charlotte avenues. North Nashville activists also want a “community benefits agreement” with MTA to guarantee employment for those who live in the area on the BRT project, both during and after construction. In the Tennessean article Paul Ballard, CEO of MTA, pointed out that, “North Nashville has always and continues to enjoy some of the highest frequency and quality of [bus] service in all of Nashville-Davidson County.” Gilmore said she is “appalled at the differences” between the amenities at stops in North Nashville compared to the other stops along the route. Gilmore said she would like the group’s concerns to be addressed before Metro applies for transit funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation to cover approximately half the estimated $175 million project. Metro would likely apply for federal funding in the fall. The city’s BRT project, as well as North Nashville economic development, was on the agenda at a Nashville Leadership Council meeting Monday at the North Police Precinct. In an effort to assist Nashvillians, MTA established a Travel Training program several years ago that teaches people one-on-one or in groups how to ride MTA buses. The agency provides training that helps people feel more comfortable and confident riding transit buses to their destination. The program is available to anyone who wants to learn how to ride MTA buses and is very helpful for students, parents, seniors, and people with and without disabilities. Two travel trainers provide training at homes, in classrooms, community centers, and on buses. For more information about the Travel Training program, call the MTA’s Travel Training Office (615) 880-3597. To learn more about transit schedules and fares, go to nashvillemta.org, call Customer Care at (615) 862-5950 or visit the Ticketing and Information Center at Music City Central, 400 Charlotte Avenue.

St. Cecilia to Host Women in Careers Forum NASHVILLE, TN — Women who have excelled in their careers as pathologists, emergency room doctors, artists, policy advisors, editors, news anchors, educators, company vice presidents and mothers will visit St. Cecilia Academy on April 16 to talk about their work experiences and share stories with the student body. The event is a part of St. Cecilia Academy’s on-going Women’s Leadership Forum, which provides students the opportunity to engage in dynamic topics such as women in the media, self defense, service work and more. This month’s forum focuses on Women in Careers and aims to help St. Cecilia’s all-girl student population see the possibilities

available to them in terms of careers. Guests include 10 St. Cecilia alumnae who have gone on to careers as the Metro Clerk of Nashville and Davidson County, director of accountability for the Tennessee Department of Education, executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville and the owner of Studio BE. In addition to the alumnae guests, other professionals on the guest list include Sharon Corbitt, manager for Ben Folds; Jamie Vaughan, Fox 17 News anchor; Jill Melton, editorin-chief at Relish Magazine; and Dr. Kim Ely, assistant professor of pathology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “Our aim with this forum is

The award, presented by Rhonda Jacks Moore, President of the Tennessee Chapter of the National Association of Social Work, recognized Williams for demonstrating the best social work values and accomplishments throughout her lifetime. “We recognize Professor Williams for her superb accomplishments throughout her lifetime in the practice of social work,” Moore said of her longtime colleague whom she referred to as a friend. “She (Williams) has also been a leader in innovative avenues for providing social work and multicultural education.” In congratulating Williams, the Dean of the College of Public Service and Urban Affairs, Dr. Stephanie Bailey spoke of her (Williams) dedication and commitment to social work. “The passion she has for and

dedication to social work is so evident,” Dr. Bailey said. “She lives and breathes it. Social Work is a nobler profession because of her contributions, dedication and passion.” Williams, who has been in higher education since 1975, has directed the TSU Social Work program for the last 13 years, during which she has successfully ensured the continued accreditation of the program. She is a founding member of the Mid-Tennessee Collaborative Master of Social Work program, the first in the country to bring together three universities (TSU, MTSU and Austin Peay) to collectively offer the MSW degree. An active member of the National Association of Social Work-TN (NASW-TN), Williams previously served as Director-at-Large and Vice President of the Tennessee Chapter. She has served as Chair and Treasurer of the Political Action Committee of NASW-TN. The previous and present Governors of the state also appointed her

to allow students to meet women in a variety of careers and learn from them how they chose that career, how they arrived in the position they have today, and how they balance work with all of the other facets of life,” said Heather Honeycutt, SCA ’02, director of student activities and forum organizer. “We are excited that the St. Cecilia students have the opportunity to interact with alumnae, past internship mentors, and other community members in both a questionand-answer format and a oneon-one discussion format.” The forum begins at 11 a.m. and is followed by a reception in the library at noon. to the Tennessee Board of Social Work Licensure. “I wholeheartedly cherish this award,” Williams said. “To be recognized by your peers is just heartwarming. I thank all my students, colleagues, staff as well as my parents and family for this honor. I did not get to where I am by myself. It was with their encouragement and support for which I am most appreciative.” When asked what was next on her plate, Williams said, “I am going to keep doing what I do best, continue to help my fellow human beings.” Williams’ award ceremony occurred during Social Work Day on the Hill, when practitioners and students spend a day at the State Capitol interacting with lawmakers, and learning about the political process. TSU social work undergraduate and graduate students joined students from other universities to present posters of their research, which were displayed in the Legislative plaza. These ceremonies were the culmination of activities observing Social Work Month in March.

Practicing Patience: Hope and Healing Through the Ministry of Presence Message by Rev. Jason Curry, Phd. of Fisk Memorial Chapel

Rev. Jason Curry, Ph.D.

I have found that there are many times along our Christian journey when words are unable to adequately express our true feelings as well as the power of God’s presence in the

healing process. When people are enduring intense periods of physical, emotional and psychological suffering, the physical presence of a member of the body of Christ is often able to help them overcome these difficult times. When Job lost members of his family, he surrounded himself with his friends (e.g., Bildad, Zophar and Eliphaz – see Job 2:11 When Lazarus died, someone asked Jesus to be present so that he could bring comfort and clarification to the situation at hand (see John 11:31-44). Listening to the problems of people who are suffering, takes great patience. When people ask me about my work in the Chapel, I tell them that I preach, teach,

counsel and write. Then I go on to tell them that counseling is by far the most exhausting aspect of my ministry. Patience is a virtue, and the depressed, confused, stressed-out, crisisoriented people who are in need of our ministries are also in great need of our patience. I often hear stories from people who needed a listening ear as opposed to a preached sermon. Indeed, the powerful words that often emanate from inspiring passages of scripture often help people through challenging times. However, the actual presence of someone who knows the Lord and loves the Lord often gives hope to people and provide them with help in the healing process.

Celebration for Rev. Michael W. Williams

Reverend Michael W. Williams

NASHVILLE, TN — Members and friends of St. Eli will celebrate the third Anniversary of Elder Michael W. Williams on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at the 11:00 a.m. featuring Elder John Haynes, Burns Tabernacle PB Church as well as the afternoon service at 3:00 p.m. featuring Elder Marcus Duke, New Day Community Church and Elder Gary Patterson, Clifton Ave UPB Church. Elder William was called to St. Eli Primitive Baptist Church in April 2010 after the death of its pastor for many years. Reverend Williams was licensed by Rev. James Trotter at Olivet Missionary Baptist Church in Nashville on February 24, 1980. He attended American Baptist

Theological Seminary until he joined the United States Air Force He served his country for 24 years until he choose to retire. While in the Air Force he continued his college education. While serving his country he was privileged to use his gift of teaching and preaching in many parts of America and aboard. On October 24, 1991 he was ordained under the leadership of Reverend Kirby Frank, pastor of the St. James Missionary Baptist Church in Melbourne, Florida. After moving back to Nashville, TN he joined the Greater St. John Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Herbert T. Brown. He served as Adult Sunday School Teacher, Associate Minister and Superintendent of Sunday School. Elder Williams is happily married to his first love Sister Linda J. Williams for six and a half years. Their marriage was featured in the Tennessee Tribune’s Contempora Magazine. Together they have three children, LaToya (Lorenzo), Robyn and Vance. They also have three grandchildren, McKenzie, Zion and Michaela. Elder Williams has a testimony that men, women, boys and girls need to hear about the goodness of God. He proudly stands among those who are willing to admit that they are the least of men whom God had mercy upon; and saved from the slavery of sin and brought into his marvelous light. Elder Williams has proven to be an effective Teacher, Preacher and Counselor. He is a strong and empathetic leader; he has chosen to follow Jesus and he is dedicated to the call of serving the Lord. To all our families, friends and fellow laborers in Christ, we invite and thank you for celebrating with us.

Merriam Webster’s online dictionary defines patience as “the capacity, habit, or fact of being patient.” It defines patient as the act or process of “bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint.” The intense challenges of life sometime cause Christians to make hasty decisions, to become callous to protect our feelings and to promote programs which negatively impact our ability to be present with people. In order to fulfill the great Christian mandate placed before us to “love of neighbor as we love ourselves (Mark 12:31),” we must continue to work hard to display patience with those who do and do not love the Lord. Displaying patience

with people of all walks of life is often difficult and challenging work; however, the Apostle Paul identifies longsuffering as a necessary component of the Christian life. As beneficiaries of God’s blessings, though His mercy, God has definitely demonstrated patience with us. Therefore, let of find the time and embrace our Christian inclination to display patience to those who may or may not have offended us. For me, the refrain of a great hymn of the Church still stands true: “Oh, how I love Jesus, because he first loved me.”

How Do I Get My Family Saved?

I love the Lord, I want my entire family to be saved, and how do I go about doing that? This question has come up recently and especially within households that have children, spouses and extended family. Continue to walk with Jesus Christ. Philippians 4:13, “I can Elder “X” Lawson do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” Sometimes it may feel like you’re the only one who understands and the only one who cares. There will be times your spouse may not understand, your kids will not understand, your friends will not understand, your family may not even understand but you continue to trust in the Lord and allow your walk with God and your lifestyle to be

pleasing in the sight of the Lord. People tried to find fault in Jesus and they will try to find fault in you so don’t be discouraged, Ecclesiastes 9:11, “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” So stand your ground and continue to let your light shine before all men. People don’t always see the works of the Lord and for the most part don’t even recognize the miracles of God. One of the best things you can do is continue to listen and be a servant. When there is need and if you are able to help supply, help supply, when the storms of life come upon yourself and others pray with the strength of the Lord tapping into the “Sphere of God” to help “Pursue perfection to Impact our imperfect world.” This is part of our walk with Christ that day by day, prayer by prayer and situation by situation God may step in and show himself mighty.

Lord we ask you to strengthen your people right now who are trying to walk up right before you daily, hourly, and every time they recognize they can do better. This we pray in Jesus name Amen. If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior try him, Romans 10:9-10 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Everyday Joy by Regina Prude

Regina M. Prude

Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. —Proverbs 30:5 NIV I want you to know today—I am praying for your healing and health. I proclaim the power of God’s Word and promises over you, even if I don’t know you by name…God does. I don’t claim to understand why some are healed and some are not; what I know for sure is that God wants us to trust Him for healing. If I’m wrong about that, nothing else in the Word makes sense—but since I know I’m right, everything makes sense. As a believer completely healed of

Stage 4 Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, I know that God still does the hard stuff. He wants us healed and understands our interest in our healing not taking forever. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.—Proverbs 13:12 NIV The enemy’s words are always the opposite of what God says. And the enemy uses fear to block our healing and our blessings. Be assured today that things are happening in the spiritual realm that we cannot see or measure. Consider, for example, what happened after Daniel prayed (Daniel 6). In the lion’s den, lions acted like lambs. An angel of God gave them lockjaw—(look that up; it’s a real pathological ailment.) I’m confident that everything God promised, everything He has ever said to me will be given to me. I believe I will accomplish everything the Lord said about me. I believe I possess all that the Lord said that I have. This is the level of faith I claim for you. Be confident; your deliverance is on the way! Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and

you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today…”— Exodus 14:13a, NIV Reach up your right hand, at this very moment; allow God to take hold of you. This gesture is not about you holding God’s hand…for you might let Him go…but He will never let go of your hand. For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.”—Isaiah 41:13 NIV So don’t be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows, and sparrows, as small as they are, fear absolutely nothing. (Matthew 10:31 NIV) © Regina M. Prude, 2013 Regina is an inspirational speaker & author.

Anger, Stress and You! Seminar

Do you sometimes find yourself becoming angry over someone else’s behavior at home or work? Anger is a natural emotion that is normal for everyone. However, we must learn how to express our anger appropriately to prevent harm to ourselves and others. Recognizing your anger can help you to develop effective coping strategies. There are warning signs that our bodies give us. Some people get a sudden headache as their anger builds. Others realize they are clenching their fists. Chronic anger can lead to a host of health problems. People who are chronically angry are at greater risk of heart attacks. Chronic unexpressed or repressed anger keeps the body in an agitated state

of emergency. That can result in a host of health problems: from stomach aches to headaches, from depression to back pain and high blood pressure, etc. Also, poorly managed anger may prompt persons to engage in unhealthy behaviors such as eating high fat foods, smoking and abusing alcohol and drugs. The more you know yourself, the easier it is to learn how to control anger. Expressing anger appropriately can lessen your stress and help you feel better. Anger can be a motivator for taking action to resolve a problem. However, you must be able to analyze your anger first before taking action in order to make an effective and safe intervention. This seminar is designed to ex-

plore where anger comes from, how it affects our lives, what choices we have when dealing with anger, and how we can respond more effectively to other people’s anger. You will discover techniques for coping with and defusing anger in yourself and with others. There will be sessions for both adults and youth. Expert professionals from the Kelly Miller Smith Center Against Abusive Behavior, Centerstone and TSU Counseling Center will lead the discussion on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 5:00 P.M., First Baptist Church, Capitol Hill (625 Rosa Parks Blvd.). The seminar is sponsored by the Counseling Ministry. Rev. Kelly Miller Smith, Jr. is the Pastor.

Miss Israel Continued from page 1A Aynaw. She was the only black finalist in this year’s beauty pageant and she has become Israel’s first black beauty queen. She’s tall, commanding, and outspoken. “It’s time that someone from my community, someone with my skin color, who is Israeli just like everyone else, represent the country,” Aynaw said. What captivated the judges was not only her beauty, but also her life story. Born in a small town, Titi was orphaned by the time she was about 10. She moved to Israel to live with her grandparents, who had already left Ethiopia for a new life here. Titi said as an Ethiopian Jew, she grew

up with storiesabout the Land of milk and honey, but her new life in Israel wasn’t all milk and honey. Titi hardly remembered her grandparents. She was sent to an Israeli boarding school without knowing a word of Hebrew. Some of her classmates made fun of her Ethiopian name, Yitayish. “What is ‘Yitayish?’ This is my name. but it soundsweird,” she says. “There were times they’d call me ‘Tayish.’ In Hebrew that’s a kind of animal. You know?” But she was proud of her Ethiopian heritage, and unlike many other Ethiopian Jewish immigrants who took on Hebrew names, she kept her own.

United Effort to Launch Jefferson Street to New Heights NASHVILLE, TN — In 1994 a group of concerned citizens -- homeowners, business owners, longtime residents and developers with new construction in mind -- met to create a framework for advancing Jefferson Street. They talked about the past. They talked about the future. They remembered things that had gone wrong. They pointed out things that had gone right. They had ideas for the future. Ideas that would make the Jefferson Street Corridor a bustling business, university and hospital center, and the kind of neighborhood where you really know your neighbors, eat in their restaurants and buy in their stores. The result of their vision of progress was J.U.M.P. -- a nonprofit organization whose mission is “To develop, foster and promote cooperative economic development through revitalization, acquisition, education and public safety programs in North Nashville.” Today over 111 individuals and organizations make up JUMP’s active membership -- publishers, doctors, lawyers, dentists, master barbers, musicians, ministers, journalists, hair stylists, retailers and restaurateurs -- with one thing in common.

Green Initiative to Create Jobs, Improve Homes

Metro Councilman Scott Davis (right) and Nell Levin of the Tennessee Alliance of Progress, talk to attendees at the Green is Alive in District 5 informational session. Davis is listed as one of the supporters

Staff Writer

Several homes in East Nashville will soon “go green”. It’s part of an initiative underway in District 5 called Green is Alive in District 5. The effort, spearheaded by the Tennessee Alliance of

Progress, kicked off recently at at New Livingstone Church on Hancock St in East Nashville. Close to 100 residents from the area showed up to learn about the program which will weatherize homes and businesses, targeting African American homes along with moderate to low-income homes. “The response has been terrific. I think people are excited about the attention this project will bring to District 5 and about the possibility of improving their homes and creating jobs,” said Nell Levin of TAP. Weatherizing the homes and businesses calls for workers to upgrade the

buildings by tightening up cracks in door and window seals as well as checking all cooling and heating systems to make sure they function properly. Doing so will save residents and business owners money by lowering utility bills. Currently, at least 40 percent of the greenhouse gases in Davidson County come from buildings, and Levin says weatherizing the buildings will help reduce Nashville’s carbon footprint. TAP plans to weatherize 100 homes and 10 businesses in District 5. This is the first project for the Green Is Alive initiative. Levin said they intentionally started in District 5. “We serve on the Advisory Committee for the Mayor’s Nashville Energy Works program where we have noticed that most of the people who were participating in the NEW program were from more affluent neighborhoods. Green is Alive in District 5 is a demonstration project designed to make the NEW program more equitable by bringing it to a majority black, low- to moderate-income East Nashville neighborhood that has many older leaky homes,” added Levin. The project will be done using the Mayor’s NEW program and the Housing Fund loan program. TAP will not actually do the labor. TAP, an advocacy group, is educating residents who will be responsible for getting an energy audit done and hiring a contractor to do the work on their home.

Levin said they will lobby on behalf of homeowners with Metro to get everything in place such as funding and permits to complete the project. One of the funding options will be the Housing Fund loan program which is based gross income. It is a low-cost, long-term loan for homeowners who are between 60 percent to 120 percent of median family income. For a family of four, the maximum income is $74,000. In addition to getting the homes up to par on Green standards, Levin said they will create jobs in the area, which is part of a long-term vision to “meld energy efficiency with job creation. Robert Pollin, of the New Labor Institute, says 17 weatherization jobs can be created for every $1 million spent. Green is Alive in District 5 is expected to wrap up in about two years, giving time for all participating homes and businesses to be brought up to Green standards. Levin says they are not sure which district they will go to next, but they do plan to continue to target low incomemoderate income neighborhoods. They will be holding a workshop in District 5 on April 25 on Green Sustainable Living that will be conducted by two professors from Tennessee State University.

MEN’S NCAA FINALS

Louisville Wins Men’s Title By Ron Wynn

The Louisville Cardinals overcame a 12-point first half deficit, then held on down the stretch to defeat the University of Michigan 82-76 Monday night in Atlanta. It was their first NCAA men’s championship since 1986, and Louisville’s third overall. Their coach Rick Pitino, voted into the Hall of Fame earlier in the day, became the first man to win championships at two schools (he also won a title at the University of Kentucky). The win left him tied with the legendary John Wooden for ninth place overall (664) on the NCAA list. Luke Hancock’s five three-pointers helped Louisville erase Michigan’s lead before the first half ended. He was voted the game’s Most Outstanding Player, the first time a substitute won that award. The Cardinals closed to within 37-36 by halftime, despite the scoring heroics of surprise star Spike Albrecht. Albrecht hadn’t played much during the season and entered the game averaging less than two points. But he made four of four from threepoint territory in the first half, scoring 17 total points. While Wooden Award winner and national Player of the Year Trey Burke was temporarily on the bench with foul trouble, it was Albrecht who kept Michigan’s offense rolling. But the combination of Hancock’s long-range accuracy and Louisville’s rotation of its defenses began taking a toll. Michigan led the nation in lowest turnover percentage during the season. But they had 12 against Louisville, most of them in the second half. Other than Burke, who got his game going over the final 20 minutes and ended up with 24 points, Michigan didn’t get the kind of output

Members of the victorious Louisville men’s basketball team embrace following Monday night’s 82-76 victory over Michigan in Atlanta

they anticipated from its other stars. “This team’s one of the most together, toughest and hard nosed teams,” Pitino told the Associated Press. Being down never bothers us. They just come back.” The players also had another interesting motivational weapon. Pitino had promised to get a tattoo if they won the championship. “I have a couple of ideas,” Hancock said. “He doesn’t know what he’s getting into.” “Our biggest motivation was to get Coach a tattoo,” added Silva. Louisville even survived a less than stellar game from usual standout guard Russ Smith, who missed much of the game due to ineffectiveness and poor shooting. Louisville (35-5) concluded the season on a 16-game winning streak that also saw them win both the Big East regular season and tournament titles, and earn the

overall number one seed in the tournament. Michigan finished 31-8, making the finals for the first time since 1993. “A lot of people didn’t make it this far,” Burke said. “A lot of people didn’t expect us to go past the second round. We fought hard to get past this point, but Louisville was the better team tonight, and they deserved the victory.” Injured guard Kevin Ware helped cut down the nets for the victorious Cardinals. After a flurry of interviews Pitino was preparing to head for New Orleans, the site of the women’s Final Four. The number five seed Lady Cardinals were opposing UConn, hoping to make Louisville only the second team in NCAA history to win men’s and women’s championships in the same year. Ironically, the only team to accomplish this feat has been UConn in 2004.

WOMEN’S NCAA FINALS

UConn Wins Championship Easily

Members of the UConn women’s team celebrate after their blowout victory Tuesday night over Louisville in New Orleans. The 93-60 win was the biggest rout in NCAA tournament history, and was the school’s eighth championship. UConn coach Geno Auriemma is tied with Tennessee’s legendary Pat Summitt, as each have eight championship crowns. With UConn’s top player Breanna Stewart only a freshman, they will be title favorites next season as well, when the women’s Final Four comes to Nashville.

By Ron Wynn

The University of Connecticut ended any suspense regarding Tuesday night’s NCAA women’s championship game very early. They established their superiority with a 25-point first half, then eliminated any remaining doubt with a 12-2 second half run. The 93-60 final in New Orleans was the biggest margin of victory in the tournament’s history, topping Tennessee’s 25-poiint win over Louisiana Tech in 1987. It was also UConn coach Geno Auriemma’s eighth title, which ties him with legendary UT coach Pat Summitt for the most championship victories among women’s coaches. His teams are also a perfect 8-0 in title games. Louisville lost to UConn in the 2009 final by 22 points, but were even more outmatched this time. Though their record (35-4)

didn’t equal some of the past UConn squads, the 2013 team unveiled the latest in a series of stars with highly touted first year player Breanna Stewart. She established their domination with an 18-point first half. Stewart ended with 23 points overall. She was voted the Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player, and will be the anchor for the team that looks to defend its title next season when the NCAA women’s tournament comes to Nashville. Auriemma recognized Summit after the game, telling the Associated Press: “The fact I tied Pat Summit’s record puts you in the category of the greatest women’s basketball coach that ever lived. I’m just thrilled for our seniors. This team accomplished an amazing feat this last month.” Louisville was trying to become the first team seeded fifth or lower to win an NCAA wom-

en’s championship. They had upset overall number one seed Baylor, and number two seeds Tennessee and California, but had no answers for UConn’s relentless offensive and defensive pressure. The Schimmel sisters collectively went only six of 23 from the floor, with the Lady Cardinals’ three-point shooters making just five of 23. UConn made 13 of 26 from three-point territory, while also outrebounding Louisville 44-28 and surpassing them in assists 24-13. The closest Louisville came was early in the second half, when they got within 16 points at 60-44. Then UConn surged again, outscoring them 33-16 the remainder of the game. “This is unbelievable,” Stewart said in regards to both winning the championship and Most Outstanding Player honors. “This is what we’ve thought about since the beginning of the

season. And now to be here and finally win it, it’s a great feeling, and I don’t think it’s going to set in for a while. I just played really confident and stopped thinking. When I second-guess myself, nothing good comes out of that.” Louisville’s NCAA men’s coach Rick Pitino, fresh off Monday’s title victory over Michigan, sat behind the Louisville bench. He spoke with the team before the game, but by halftime he was also paying tribute to Stewart, calling her “one of the best freshman in basketball.” Louisville coach Jeff Walz praised his team’s effort and saluted what he called a “dream” season, but also said it was clear his team didn’t have enough firepower, nor shot well enough, to provide a challenge to UConn. The Cardinals finished 29-8.

Despite the best efforts of ESPN and other networks, sports really isn’t quite as important as many people want to make it. Certainly such entities as the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB make enormous profits for the handful of corporations and extremely rich team owners who control them, and the NCAA Tournament is a billion-dollar operation featuring “amateur” athletes. But in terms of really being meaningful beyond the final outcome, especially in terms of helping change society for the better, a good case can be made sports hasn’t done such a great job, except in a few instances. But those examples are so epic they compensate for many other failings. High on that list is Jackie Roosevelt Robinson’s breaking of baseball’s color line, a feat that remains incredibly impressive and important 66 years later. “42” is the second film made which documents that event. The first was a 1950 biopic effort “The Jackie Robinson Story” that was a decent effort for the time, but also restricted by the sanitized and restrictive practices of the day. There were no such barriers in the way of director Brian Helgeland, and those whose ears have problems with vile language should be advised that there are plenty of ugly racial slurs throughout “42.” But that’s what Robinson faced at the time. In fact in some ways the film doesn’t go far enough. It doesn’t show the black cat thrown on the field at St. Louis, and only skims the surface in terms of the vicious treatment Robinson received across the league. It’s designed to be an updated version of the feel-good, inspirational treatment delivered by its predecessor, and it’s impossible not to get a feeling of intense pride when main star Chadwick Boseman superbly documents the amount of courage and grit it took Jackie Robinson to deal with the daily reality of overt hatred and racism. Baseball in America during the ‘40s occupied the place that the NFL has in the 21st century. It was both an obsession and a metaphor for society, a mythical enterprise where the greatest athletes in the world (or at least in America) regularly collided to determine their superiority. While many in the know (including Brooklyn’s Branch Rickey) knew that there were actually many players better than the ones in the majors toiling in the Negro Leagues, a ban had existed against Blacks since the late 19th century. One area where the film doesn’t go into enough detail is to show just how that ban was enforced, including the role of the baseball commissioner and major American newspapers who supported it. Still, I would advise anyone who cares about history of any kind to see “42” when it opens Friday. It’s not perfect, but in its tale of a victory over racism, as well the secondary story of the love affair between Jackie Robinson and his wife Rachel, it is one of those rare times when a sports story transcends the baseball diamond and truly does provide a meaningful message for everyone.

Predators and Grizzlies Approach Playoffs By Ron Wynn

The playoff fortunes look very different for the Nashville Predators and Memphis Grizzlies as the NHL and NBA regular seasons’ enter their final days. The Predators’ chances may have taken a fatal blow over the weekend, while the Grizzlies are assured of the best year in franchise history. The Predators needed to win every one of their remaining games to have any realistic chance at making the playoffs. Instead, they dropped back-to-back games against the Chicago Blackhawks. The losses dropped the Predators into 13th place in the Western Conference, five points behind the eighth place Detroit Red Wings on Monday with only eight games left. Despite having the majority of those games at home, including four of the next five, coach Barry Trotz called their playoff hopes “remote” Sunday evening. The Memphis Grizzlies blew a 12-point fourth quarter lead, but rallied to edge the Sacramento Kings 89-87 Sunday afternoon, finishing their last West Coast trip with a 2-1 record. The victory was their 52nd against 25 losses, though they still remained in fifth place. But they’ve clinched a playoff berth, and have surpassed by two the previous mark for regular season wins. A lack of offense has been Nashville’s primary problem, along with numerous

game Tuesday. The roster was so depleted the Predators’ inserted rookie forward Austin Watson, who was just called up from Milwaukee on an “emergency” basis the day before, into Sunday’s game for nearly 14 minutes. Watson was their 2010 first round draft pick. He had one shot on goal and played on both the power play and penalty kill units. Still, the Predators’ worked hard in both games, losing Saturday 1-0 at Bridgestone Arena, and 5-3 Sunday evening in Chicago. The Sunday game was an even tougher defeat because they twice overcame one-goal deficits. Nashville even took a 3-2 lead early in the third period on David Legwand’s 11th goal at the 6:54 mark. But a 55-second interval where the Blackhawks scored twice turned the tables, and an empty net Chicago goalie Ray Emery frustrated the goal provided Chicago’s final victory marPredators twice over the weekend, as the gin. Chicago Blackhawks’ won Chicago’s Brandon Saad knocked a back-to-back games against Nashville loose puck behind Predators’ goaltender injuries. Sunday they faced the conference- Pekka Rinne with 10:23 remaining to tie leading Blackhawks in Chicago without the score.

Blackhawks. The Predators’ faced St. Louis on Tuesday. They have Friday and Sunday home games against the Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings respectively. The Detroit game is on the NBC Sports Network at 6:30 p.m. The others were 7 p..m. starts, both televised on SportSouth. The Grizzlies got two blocked shots by Marc Gasol in the final seven seconds, preserving their two-point win and giving them a season’s sweep of the Kings. Gasol blocked five shots, including Marcus Thornton’s three-point try with one second left. Mike Conley hit the go-ahead basket for the Grizzlies with 30 seconds remaining. He had his fourth straight 20-point game, getting 25 points and adding four assists. Memphis didn’t get big offensive games from Zach Randolph (nine points) or Gasol (15 points but only four of 10 from the floor), but they got solid support from the bench. Quincy Poindexter’s season-high 17 points were vital, as well as strong team defense that held Sacramento under 25 points in three of four quarters. The Grizzlies remain a game behind Denver (53-24) and the Los Angeles Clippers (51-26) in the battle for third place. Their next game was Tuesday night at home against the Charlotte Bobcats.

WOMEN’S TENNIS

Serena Wins Second Straight Title

Jankovic is a former number one player, and was the only opponent to break Williams’ serve the entire tournament. After two breaks in the first set, she was in position to jump ahead 1-0 in the second set. But instead, Williams took eight straight points, and the rout was on. “The key (to her early success) was I served very well and made a lot of first serves in, so she couldn’t attack it,” Jankovic said. “But I managed to lose them. Of course, she’s going to go up and feel much better and she is again in control. So that was my mistake, and it was unfortunate for my side.” It was Serena Williams’ 49th career singles title. She’s only four behind Monica Seles for ninth place on the WTA’s career list. But it didn’t come particularly Serena Williams continued her easy, as she had to defeat big sister Venus domination of the women’s tour, winning a second straight Family Circle Cup title in the semifinals. Williams dispatched Sunday over Jelena Jankovic. After her 6-1, 6-2, the most one-sided victory dropping the first set, Williams won 12 of she’s had over Venus. the next 14 games.

She posted her second straight title victory wait for her to be ready,” Jankovic said. Sunday, defeating Jelena Jankovic 3-6, “That’s not true.” But the two players exchanged smiles and greetings after the 6-0, 6-2. It was also her second consecutive match, and Williams even applauded her Family Circle Cup crown. But it was a opponent’s play along with the crowd.

This Day in Sports

On this day in 1981, Larry Holmes encountered surprisingly tough opposition in defense of his heavyweight title. Homes had previously knocked out eight straight opponents, but future WBC champion Trevor Berbick took him the distance before finally losing. Despite winning his first 48 professional bouts and falling only one short of equaling Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record, Larry Holmes was never an enormously popular or highly regarded figure. Part of that was due to his defeat of Muhammad Ali in 1980. Also, the heavyweight division had lost much of its luster, and many of his opponents weren’t considered exceptional fighters. But Larry Holmes ranks second only to Joe Louis in successful title defenses (20). He finished his career winning 59 of 65 fights (44 by knockout), most losses coming well after he was past his prime. Holmes was inducted into both The International Boxing and World Boxing Halls of Fame.

Black Celebrities Who Have Died From AIDS

Alvin Ailey

Arthur Ashe

Easy-E

Fela Kuti

Franklyn Seales

Howard Rollins

Kenny Greene

Sylvester James

Blacks are one of the groups most affected by HIV, currently currently accounting for about half of the people who get HIV and AIDS — although they comprise 14% of the US population. Bobby DeBarge Many high-profile celebrities have lived and died with the HIV/AIDS as well. The loss of these stars should serve as a reminder of what our community will continue to lose if we don’t educate ourselves, change our behaviors, get tested regularly and get treated to prevent and fight against HIV…which many people forget is very much a preventable disease. Choreographer Alvin Ailey is renowned for popularizing modern dance through his world-famous company, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. He passed away from AIDS-related diseases at 58. Arthur Ashe was the first AfricanAmerican man to reach prominence as a professional tennis player. After contracting AIDS from a blood transfusion in the ‘80s, he became an activist to raise awareness about the disease. He died at 49. As the founder of Ruthless Records and group N.W.A., Eazy-E is credited with inventing the genre of gangsta rap. The hiphop icon died of AIDS-related illnesses at 31. Rollins made a name for himself in memorable roles such as Coalhouse Walker, Jr. in the 1981 film Ragtime. After struggling with substance abuse, Rollins died of AIDS-related lymphoma at 46. Better known simply as Sylvester, this disco star released the dance classic “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)” in 1978. He passed away due to complications from AIDS at 41. Seales was a television and movie actor

best known for playing Dexter Stuffins on the sitcom Silver Spoons. He died at 37 due to AIDS-related illnesses. Fela created an immortal reputation for himself as an originator of “Afrobeat” music, which mixes jazz, R&B, and traditional African rhythms. He died from an AIDSrelated illness at 58. Greene was a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter who penned hits for stars like Mary J. Blige, such as “Reminisce” and “Love No Limit.” He died of complications due to AIDS at 32. Bobby DeBarge (March 5, 1956 – August 16, 1995) In 1988, shortly before being sent to prison for drug trafficking, Bobby DeBarge confided to his family that he had contracted AIDS from intravenous drug use. In 1995, DeBarge became gravely ill and his family sent him to a hospice in Grand Rapids, where he died at 39 from AIDS complications. Testing Information You Need To Know… How can I tell if I’m infected? The only way to know if you are infected is to be tested for HIV infection. You cannot rely on symptoms to know whether or not you are infected. Many people who are infected with HIV do not have any symptoms at all for many years. For information on where to find an HIV testing site, visit the National HIV Testing Resources web site at http://www. hivtest.org or call CDC-INFO24 Hours/ Day at (800) CDC-INFO (232-4636), (888) 232-6348 (TTY). What are the most effective ways to be tested for infection? In most cases the test is performed on blood drawn from a vein. The blood is checked for the presence of antibodies to HIV. Other body fluids can also be tested to screen for HIV. These include: Oral Fluid Tests: These tests use oral fluid (not saliva) that is collected from the mouth using a special collection device. Urine Tests: These tests use urine in-

stead of blood. The sensitivity and specificity (accuracy) of the oral and urine tests are less than that of the traditional blood tests. Rapid Tests: A rapid test is a screening test that produces very quick results (approximately 20-60 minutes). Home Testing Kits: In July of 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved OraQuick, the first home test kit for HIV infection. Individuals can purchase the kit at stores and pharmacies and even on-line to test themselves in the privacy of their homes. Chain drugstores, including Duane Reade and CVS, carry the test for around $40. Departments, clinics, offices of private doctors, hospitals, and other sites set up specifically to provide HIV testing. For information on where to find an HIV testing site, visit the National HIV Testing Resources web site at http://www.hivtest. org, or call CDC-INFO, (800) CDC-INFO (232-4636), (888) 232-6348 (TTY). How long after possible infection should I wait to get tested? It can take some time for the immune system to produce enough antibodies for the HIV test to detect. This time period can vary from person to person. Most people will develop detectable antibodies within two to eight weeks (the average is 20 days to 25 days). Even so, there is a chance that some people will take longer to develop detectable antibodies. If the initial negative HIV test was conducted within the first three months after possible exposure, repeat testing should be done at six months. What happens if I test positive? If you test positive for HIV, the sooner you take steps to protect your health, the better. Early medical treatment and a healthy lifestyle can help you stay well. Prompt medical care may delay the onset of AIDS and prevent some life-threatening conditions. There is much you can do to stay healthy. Learn all that you can about maintaining good health.

TSU Faculty and Staff Bring Autism to the Forefront on World Autism Awareness Day

REPRESENTATIONAL PHOTO

NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) – A bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios, naming the months of the year, playing games on his electronic tablet, brushing his teeth, and watching Mickey Mouse cartoons…this is 3 year-old Jordyn Marks’ every-morning routine. Then, he and mom are out the door for school. Spotting a yellow school bus on the way is a must if mother and toddler are to start the day on a good note. “If we don’t see a yellow school bus while riding in the car Jordyn gets upset,” explains mom Chasity Robertson. “His routine has to be consistent. If his routine is broken he gets upsets. In the afternoon when we get home, it has to be gold-fish crackers every day.” Robertson has a full schedule like most moms with work at the University, attending school, and being an attentive mother. However, that is where the similarities end because Jordyn has Autism Spectrum Disorder. The doting mother and Tennessee State University student (M.Ed. in Elementary Education) says she became suspicious something was not right when he was 11 months old. “Jordyn wasn’t mumbling or uttering the first word for many other children, ‘dada’ or making eye contact when someone would talk to him. I was told he’s a boy and they develop slower than girls and not to worry. As time passed by, I tried not to place much emphasis on the fact that he still wasn’t talking at 14 months.” On Feb. 14, 2012 when most people were preparing for Valentine’s Day, Jordyn’s parents were up at 7 a.m. preparing themselves mentally, and their son, for a series of evaluations that would last up to six hours. Doctors and psychologist evaluated the toddler’s social interaction, speech, and imaginative play skills. His mom recalls what seemed like two-and-ahalf hours of playtime to Jordyn was nerve wrecking for the parents. “All the while this was taking place; his dad and I were questioned about anything you can imagine about Jordyn. After the

Jordyn Marks and Chasity Robertson

evaluation, he was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Jordyn received speech-language therapy, applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, developmental therapy, along with occupational and physical therapy up until he was 3 years old.” Children with autism can be taught many ways based on their social, emotional, functional, and behavioral needs, according to Dr. Sumita ChakrabortiGhosh, professor, Special Education, EDTL, College of Education, at Tennessee State University. Dr. Charkraborit-Ghosh is a leading expert on autism and has instituted the Strengths Based Instruction (SBI) (C) model in Davidson County. “SBI is currently being implemented on a high functioning child with ASD in inclusion setting in one of the largest high school in Davidson County in collaboration with a special education coordinator/ inclusion teacher and parent. My study was recently presented at “Georgia Autism Conference” in Atlanta, and currently in the process of being patented.” Dr. Chakraborti-Ghosh has been recognized nationally and internationally for

her research in the area of special education for minority children and inclusion services. Her current model is a creating a new dimension of teaching children with disabilities. According to the American Psychiatric Society, ASD and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. The disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, based on difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. Over the last five years, scientists have identified a number of rare gene changes, or mutations, associated with autism. A small number of these are sufficient to cause autism by themselves. However, most cases of autism appear to be caused by a combination of autism risk genes and environmental factors influencing early brain development. The latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention point to a 1,000 percent increase in reported cases over the last four decades. It is estimated that 1 in 88 children in the United States will be diagnosed with autism (1 in 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls). This is more children

than are affected by diabetes, AIDS, cancer cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy or Down syndrome combined. A growing body of research suggests that a woman can reduce her risk of having a child with autism by taking prenatal vitamins containing folic acid and/or eating a diet rich in folic acid (at least 600 mcg a day) during the months before and after conception. At age two and a year after being diagnosed, Jordyn began to talk and retain information from therapy sessions, and sessions with family members. He also learned to say his alphabet, days of the week, numbers from 1-20, colors and shapes, along with his name and where he lives. Today, reading books from the “Pete the Cat” series and naming all the months of the year in chronological order are his favorite activities. Dr. Chakraborti-Ghosh believes Jordon has every right to be educated in inclusion classrooms based on his ability. “Jordyn is on the right track with early intervention services, with an Individual Family Plan. With his ongoing developmental and behavioral progress with appropriate ABA, and a Behavior Intervention Plan in place, Jordon can certainly function in an inclusion classroom. However, all pros and cons must be considered carefully prior to placement.” On Tuesday evening while Jordyn is taking his practice swing at home plate with his T-ball team and mom and dad are in the stands, TSU will join thousands of other organizations in observing the sixth annual World Autism Awareness Day. The College of Education faculty and students will wear blue and decorate Clay Hall. Meanwhile, President Glenda Glover will have the Ned Wherter Administration Building donning a familiar color, TSU blue, as the campus proudly participates in the Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue event for a very special boy and his family, representing thousands as they face the daily challenges of this disorder.
