American Baptist College is City’s Fourth HBCU Staff Writer

NASHVILLE, TN — American Baptist College joins Fisk University, Meharry Medical College and Tennessee State and over 100 more colleges and universities across the nation that are classified as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). ABC was recently notified by the United States Department of Education that their request was approved after nine months of working through the application process. The official HBCU designation began in 1965 when the Higher Education Act was enacted. The institu-

tion must have been established prior to 1964, must be accredited and must have a primary mission to educate African Americans. “Now we are on the map because of our status. Now they know we are here and we are financially able to help those that did know we were here but couldn’t come,” said Sarah Brooks, a 1987 graduate of ABC. The HBCU status is more than just a ranking, according to Regina Prude, director of Proposal and Grant Research Development at ABC. She says the listing now opens doors for ABC to have access to a larger pool of financial aid from federal and philanthropic

by invitation only. The address, announced by the White House, is part of several commencement ceremonies in which Mrs. Obama will participate in. The First Lady will deliver the commencement address at Bowie State University on May 17. The White House said the First Lady will be speaking at Bowie State “because of its legacy as Maryland’s oldest historically black university.” She will also deliver speeches at Eastern Kentucky University on May 11 as part of her Joining Forces initiative, because of its outstanding record supporting veterans and military families.

Simply because of ABC’s new status, they will receive an annual grant that will be a minimum of $250,000 each year. The grant will be administered to ABC over a five-year period of time which can potentially be renewed at the end of the term.

New Home Development Coming to Clarksville Pike Staff Writer

People looking to move into affordable homes in Nashville will not have to wait too much longer. Hallmark Station, a new residential community, is under development. The seven-acre lot is sandwiched in the green space behind the Elpizo Shopping Center on West Hamilton where Youth About Business is located and also behind Kroger grocery store, 3030 Clarksville Pike . Sixty-six mixed-use residential units are marked for the space. “I’m very excited about it. I think it’s going to be a beautiful thing. I was so excited when I heard there was going to be a playground but a club house too. It’s going to be something that just hasn’t been done in this area,” said Gina Coleman. Coleman has lived in Haynes Park, a neighborhood right next door to Hallmark Station, for 31 years. The former neighborhood association president and current treasurer says Hallmark Station will not only add value to North Nashville, but will be a good way for younger families to be able to buy in the area and live right next door to some of North Nashville’s older residents of the neighborhood, those she refers to as the gatekeepers of North Nashville. “You can walk to the store. You have everything behind you like public transportation. That was the idea. We wanted our young children to be next to the aging parents,” added Coleman. The development will include a variety of condos, townhomes and duplexes. Funding for the project comes from a tax credit grant which requires affordable housing price points. The units will range from $90,000 - $100,000. They will be outfitted with energyefficient materials designed to save homeowners money on monthly utility bills. The development was first introduced in 2007, but a dismal housing market and struggling economy put the project on hold after interested developers failed to secure funding. The May 2010 flood re-ignited the conversation about the development as a possible solution for those in the area displaced by the flood to be able to come back to the neighborhood they lived in for years, instead of starting over on another part of the city. “Once we were in the rehab-rebuild mode after the flood, the question came up, as far as looking up how we can develop some property to have as alternatives instead of moving people out of the neighborhood. This would allow them to stay in the neighborhood but not in the flood zone,” said Councilman Lonnell Matthews,

Construction work is under way on a new 66-unit subdivision behind the Clarksville Pike strip mall where Kroger grocery store is located

Jr, District 1. “We still couldn’t find a developer that could get financing. No developer would touch it in the housing market still.” The property sat in construction limbo until one year ago when Aslan Development purchased the property and began construction. While many neighboring residents support the idea of new affordable housing moving into the area, there is still concern about the tight throughway. For now, there is only one way into the subdivision. It is the same tight one-lane side street that serves as the entrance to the shopping center where Kroger, Subway, Domnio’s Pizza and China Spring are located. It’s a concern that has residents and Matthews waiting and watching. “I do have concerns that came up at a community meeting that the developer attended. They felt comfortable that the one street would handle the increased traffic that would come with the development. I am still on the fence with that one,” said Matthews. Matthew says there is an easement from Metro that runs alongside the Elpizo Shopping Center that could potentially be used as an access road if Metro agrees and if Aslan Development would consider it. This isn’t the first time that concerns about the tight roadways through the development came up. To appease Haynes Park residents, Public Works and the fire marshal, the developers amended the plan to include a loop-road that would eliminate dead ends in the neighborhood. The Planning Commission then approved the revised plan. Rough beginning Despite the support that the development has now, it didn’t start out that way. Back in 2007 the original company that owned the property – Nare Holdings, the same company that owns Kroger – planned to use the seven acres to build a storage unit. Haynes Park neigh-

Neighbors are concerned that the small street that runs alongside the shopping center will be the only entry-way to the subdivision

bors caught wind of the project and quickly protested against it. To keep the peace with neighbors of the project, Nare Holdings met with residents to take their suggestions on what they would like to see developed in the open space. They introduced some ideas. One of them was a housing development. “We were the author of this idea. We wanted good housing. We wanted it to be pretty with pretty fixtures. This is something that we have never had since I’ve been in the community,” said Coleman. Work has begun on the project, but Matthews says they are keeping a close watch on the development. “I’m pleased to see people are interested in developing in this area, but we have to keep them accountable for this type of development and make sure the people that move in are accountable citizens that will uphold the area,” said Matthews.

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT James S. Brady Press Briefing Room THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. Earlier today, I was briefed by my homeland security team on the events in Boston. We’re continuing to monitor and respond to the situation as it unfolds. And I’ve directed the full resources of the federal government to help state and local authorities protect our people, increase security around the United States as necessary, and investigate what happened. The American people will say a prayer for Boston tonight. And Michelle and I send our deepest thoughts and prayers to the families of the victims in the wake of this senseless loss. We don’t yet have all the answers. But we do know that multiple people have been wounded, some gravely, in explosions at the Boston Marathon. I’ve spoken to FBI Director Mueller and Secretary of Homeland Security Napolitano, and they’re mobilizing the appropriate resources to investigate and to respond. I’ve updated leaders of Congress in both parties, and we reaffirmed that on days like this there are no Republicans or Democrats -- we are Americans, united in concern for our fellow citizens. I’ve also spoken with Governor Patrick and Mayor Menino, and made it clear that they have every single federal resource necessary to care for the victims and counsel the families. And above all, I made clear to them that all Americans stand with the people of Boston. Boston police, firefighters, and first

responders as well as the National Guard responded heroically, and continue to do so as we speak. It’s a reminder that so many Americans serve and sacrifice on our behalf every single day, without regard to their own safety, in dangerous and difficult circumstances. And we salute all those who assisted in responding so quickly and professionally to this tragedy. We still do not know who did this or why. And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. But make no mistake -- we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this; we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. Today is a holiday in Massachusetts -- Patriots’ Day. It’s a day that celebrates the free and fiercely independent spirit that this great American city of Boston has reflected from the earliest days of our nation. And it’s a day that draws the world to Boston’s streets in a spirit of friendly competition. Boston is a tough and resilient town. So are its people. I’m supremely confident that Bostonians will pull together, take care of each other, and move forward as one proud city. And as they do, the American people will be with them every single step of the way. You should anticipate that as we get more information, our teams will provide you briefings. We’re still in the investigation stage at this point. But I just want to reiterate we will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable. Thank you very much

also now publicly justify every rate increase of 10 percent or more, which has led to a sharp decline in double-digit rate hikes. Starting in 2014, insurers will have to justify every proposed rate increase, even if it’s a 1 percent bump. Additional rules require insurers to spend at least 80 percent of small employer premium dollars on employees’ actual health benefits, instead of the insurer’s own administrative costs. These limits have already resulted in more than $1 billion being returned to small business owners and other consumers. And the law has also begun to slow rising costs across the system by reducing waste and fraud and promoting higher quality care that emphasizes coordination and prevention. These changes in care delivery have contributed to the slowest sustained national health spending growth in 50 years. Small businesses are the backbone of our communities. And, in an economy where small businesses create twothirds of jobs, owners and employees deserve a health insurance market with fairer prices, better choices, and greater certainty. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, that market is on its way. And while many small business owners have questions about the employer responsibility provision, it is important to note that businesses with fewer than 50 employees – that’s 96 percent of small businesses – are not required to purchase insurance. Of the remaining 4 percent of small businesses with more than 50 employees, most already provide insurance. So the number of businesses that will have to begin offering employee health insurance or pay a penalty is very small. No business owner wants to drop coverage for their employees. For many, their employees are like a family. For others, offering health insurance is critical to attracting the kind of workers they need to succeed. By making the health insurance market work better for Tennessee small businesses, the law is letting them focus on what they do best: delivering great products and services, creating jobs, and growing our economy. To receive information and sign up for updates, Tennessee small business owners can visit healthcare.gov. And if they have any questions, they can contact their local Small Business Administration www.sba.gov/tn or Health and Human Services office at 233 Peachtree Street, NE Suite 1900 Atlanta, GA 30303; Phone: 404-331-0100.

For years, we had a health insurance market that was broken for small businesses. Because they had less bargaining power, small businesses paid an average of 18 percent more for the same health insurance plan offered to the bigger business down the street, and their premiums could skyrocket if a single employee got sick. That made it hard for many small business owners to keep offering coverage and grow their businesses. But because of the Affordable Care Act, Tennessee’s small businesses and their employees are getting better choices, starting with new protections that limit the outrageous rate hikes many small business owners faced in the past. Beginning in 2014, Tennessee’s small business owners will have access to a new Health Insurance Marketplace—which opens for enrollment on Oct. 1—that will allow them to make side-by-side comparisons to find a plan that fits their budget and that’s right for their businesses and employees. Each Marketplace will operate a Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP, focused just on small businesses, where employers will be able to choose from a range of affordable plans to offer their employees. Small businesses are also seeing savings thanks to new tax credits available to help them cover their employees. Many small businesses with 25 or fewer employees have already received a tax credit of up to 35 percent of their health insurance costs. And beginning in 2014, this tax credit will go up to 50 percent. One regional veterinarian Hansel Leavengood praised the Affordable Care Act as a benefit to small businesses owners like himself. He estimates he will receive roughly $7,000 in tax credits in 2014– a savings that will help offset the cost to insure about 14 employees. “Providing health insurance for the people who work for us is the right thing to do,” Leavengood said in recent conversations with senior HHS leaders. “I get a benefit from Mr. Obama for doing the right thing. The people who work for me need it and appreciate it.” That’s just one of the ways the law is bringing down costs for small business owners. Insurance companies must

The Meharry Association of Office Personnel (MAOP)

In the late 1960’s recognizing the need for improved work conditions, increased salaries, and effective communication between supervisors and the administration, a group of concerned secretaries at Meharry Medical College and George W. Hubbard Hospital, organized a Steering Committee to address these issues. The members of the steering committee successfully crafted a constitution and by-laws for the establishment of a professional secretaries association; and founded the Meharry Secretaries Association (MSA) under the authority of Meharry Medical College and George W. Hubbard Hospital on October 7, 1969. The founding members of MSA were Mrs. Jewell Bennett (deceased); Mrs. Virginia Brooks, Mrs. Dorothea Dotson (deceased); Mrs. Betty Jennings, Mrs. Audrey Hall and Mrs. Annie Price. On October 21, 1969, the purpose and objectives for the Meharry Secretaries Association (MSA) were defined to promote efficiency, professionalism in the pursuit of the establishment of continuing education/training programs; and adequate salaries and benefits for the secretaries and other support staff of Meharry Medical College and George W. Hubbard Hospital. The late Dr. Matthew Walker, an esteemed 1934 honors graduate of Meharry was the Association’s founding advisor. Internationally recognized as a pioneer in medicine and surgery, Dr. Walker served as chairman of the DeDr. Matthew Walker partment of

During the 1970’s the Meharry Secretaries Association experienced unprecedented growth. A career development program focusing on continuing education was initiated and monthly seminars were held; and an invitation was received from the National Secretaries Association for MSA’s participation in their national meetings and conferences.

Negative Events Seem to Always Be “Near TSU” By Ron Weathersby

NASHVILLE, TN — Why is it that anytime a dramatic crime takes place in North Nashville the so-called mainstream media here nearly always say it happened “near TSU?” It is getting redundant, is an insult to Nashville’s black community and seems to be another thinly veiled attack on the state’s only publically funded HBCU. The continued use of “near TSU” when identifying crime scenes in North Nashville takes place in the region’s daily newspaper and even on the area’s television news casts. By contrast we never read or hear of crimes taking place “near Vanderbilt” or “near Belmont.” Although we do not wish this negative connotation on any of our city’s distinguished institutions we have to seriously question why TSU is nearly universally associated with violent crime in North Nashville. By contrast, last fall a national publication, Business Insider ranked the most dangerous colleges in the country by averaging FBI crime data per capita from 2008 to 2011 for schools with enrollment over 10,000. Schools were ranked based on a combination of violent crime rank and property crime rank, with violent crime weighted four times higher. Violent crimes included murder/non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault. Property crimes included burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, and arson. Astonishingly Vanderbilt ranked the fifth most dangerous school on that list. TSU was nowhere to be found. However viewers and readers of the popular newspaper and broadcast news in the area never read about nor heard that story. The indiscriminate use of “near TSU” in identifying crime scenes arguably has had a negative impact on the school. Why would parents of collegeaged students want their children to attend a college apparently in a near war zone according to the local media reports? Enrollment at the school has been stagnant at best. Business development around the school has been stunted also. Colleges

When mentioning crime in North Nashville in the press “leave TSU out of the equation!”

spawn retail development to meet the needs of students, faculty and staff but the area surrounding TSU has few full service restaurants and no entertainment venues, clubs or bars that traditionally sprout up near college campuses nationwide. Likewise the historic campus is not a tourist destination. The Tribune should not be alone in our condemnation of this practice. Where is the mayor, our state and local elected officials in this fight? Why haven’t the members of the TBR spoken out about this consistent association of TSU to crime? Our media has taken the lead in promoting everything positive about our great city but somehow this long, endless attack on TSU’s image continues. We believe that all news should be reported but we are weary of hearing and seeing nothing but negative stories about TSU and the neighborhood in which it resides. Why does the Tennessean actively promote and lead the cheers for controversial and costly municipal projects and policies while always finding something negative to report about TSU even when TSU has nothing to do with the negative story? Although our major media outlets are obsessed with reporting about crime in North Nashville there has to be a more equitable way to report about crime in

the black community than to always say it happened “near TSU.” North Nashville needs attention but not in this vain. The area is literally rife with social and economic needs that go unaddressed in the government and the media. Where are the editorials championing employment programs for the residents in the area? How can our media commend government give-aways to huge corporations but ignore the necessity of jumpstarting investment in North Nashville? What is the ratio of good stories to negative stories about North Nashville in the mass media? TSU also needs attention and deserves better. There are wonderful things happening on campus and there are literally thousands of great stories taking place on the campus of TSU weekly. Millions of dollars of research grants have been awarded to TSU. Young people from TSU are making a positive contribution to our society. Professors are being recognized by international groups yet we continually and obsessively hear and read about crimes taking place “near TSU.” Nashville has been celebrated and honored internationally for our diversity, our social and political leadership, our contributions to culture, our growth as a global business center and, our institutions of higher learning. However,

it seems to us and many others that the regional media attempts at every turn to tear down our one shining example of public higher education in our city. TSU exemplifies the hopes, dreams and promise of our great city. We believe that instead of attaching negative stereotypes to the school our media should tout TSU as it does Vanderbilt and other schools in the area. Too many times it seems we are charged with using the race card, a phrase made popular during the trial of a famous football player nearly twenty years ago. However, in the history of Tennessee and Nashville we have not utilized the race card nearly as often as the folks who incessantly have sought to and it seems, still seek to marginalize one-third of the area’s population. There is more happening in North Nashville besides crime and poverty and TSU stands as one of the beacons of hope and promise in our community. As parents protect their children, we will continue to defend TSU because of its historic and current status not only here in Nashville but globally. There have been far too many attacks. There have been far too many innuendos. And now the clincher, the use of the phrase, “near TSU” has to stop. Rather than malign the institution we have chosen to uplift it. TSU means far too much to us than to sit quietly like our so-called leadership and let this superior institution continually be placed into an equation consisting of crime and all its residual maladies. For over a century white Tennessee and white Nashville has sought to marginalize and in some cases disrupt the mission of the state’s extraordinary publically financed HBCU. Yes there are severe social and economic challenges that must be addressed in North Nashville. There are ordeals TSU must address also. However, it’s time for all of us, the governor, the mayor, the TBR, state and local legislators, the Chamber of Commerce, NAACP, Urban League, the Ministerial Alliance and, the local mainstream media to stand up and finally say once and for all, “Leave TSU out of the equation!”

SUBSCRIPTION FORM Your Mobile Device - Friend or Foe? Who is more important: you or a group of your fellow nonprofit volunteers or professionals? What signal are you sending when you direct your attention to your mobile device instead of the group’s discussion? If you believe the work of the organization or institution is unimportant, say so and work with your peers to restructure meetings. If not, give your attention to the business at hand. Each of you has carved out time from your busy schedules to attend the meeting: make the most of it. For many, time is now considered a resource even more valuable than money. Increasing demands on our time from work, family and volunteer commitments make it all the more important that time allocated for meetings be most productive. As nonprofit professionals are asked to take on more responsibilities the time dedicated to staff meetings becomes even more valuable. Checking your mobile device removes your attention from the discussion at hand. Your knowledge, expertise and insights are removed from the conversation. The opportunity for synergistic thinking, problem solving and strategizing diminishes as participants mentally enter and leave the group’s work with a glance at their device. And then there’s hurt feelings. Some people are offended when they are talking and others are texting or checking email. The sentiment can be, “Why should I bother if they aren’t interested?” The result can be a process of gradual or immediate disengagement. Observe your behavior and that of others in the next meeting you attend. How often do people check their devices? What is accomplished in the meeting?

Ask reflective questions of yourself and others in the room: are our meetings boring? Too long? Are they structured to take advantage of the best thinking in the room? Are people coming prepared to meetings? When are people checking their devices and does that correlate to the discussion at hand? Make sure your meetings are worthy of the time you ask each person to give. Develop a protocol for the use of mobile devices. One corporate board asks members to place devices in a basket upon entering the meeting, and provides breaks for the purpose of checking calls and messages. Your nonprofit is as important as a corporate board. Reach agreement regarding the use of devices and hold each other accountable. Remind people of the policy when meetings are being scheduled, and again at the beginning of each meeting. You can use mobile devices to help advance the organizations you are involved with. Engaging and updating friends, colleagues, donors and supporters via Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest or Instragram increases the organization’s social media presence and reach. The same with calling and emailing to set appointments and provide updates. Mobile devices bring us together. Don’t let them drive us apart.

The resulting exclusive videos add dimension to the Nashville Music Council’s effort to promote Nashville as the premier live music city in the country, while also solidifying War Memorial Auditorium as a major contributor to the city’s music scene. With so much grand music history in its lineage, it’s hard to believe that the War Memorial Auditorium can also accommodate weddings and special events for everyday people too. “Yes, a lot of people who might be new to the city but have been to the WMA, do find that hard to believe but it’s true,” says Melchior. “The building is so versatile. Customers have used the courtyard area for weddings, wedding receptions, after parties and more. We’ve had a concert on a Friday, followed by a wedding the next day and then back again to another concert on that Sunday.” For future brides-to-be the multi-purpose WMA offers classic architecture, elevated ceilings, iconic columns, and intricate gilded borders. These timeless elements create an elegant backdrop and ambiance for a picture perfect wedding. The crescent-shaped stage and beautiful hardwood floors are ideal for banquet or cabaret seating. The room’s versatility also provides the option of a dance floor as well as live entertainment. “Nashville is a very competitive market when it comes to venues because there are so many great options here,” says Melchior. “But at WMA we’re steadily making even more new and exciting changes. And we want to keep putting our name out here to let people know, especially young people, what a special place this venue really is.” For more information or to book an event or wedding visit www.wmarocks. com or call 615. 782.4040.

‘Growing Up Graceland’ Comes to Nashville

By Janice Malone

Over the last 40-plus years, there have been hundreds of films and books about the late King of Rock N’Roll -- Elvis Presley. Is it possible that another film about the iconic music legend’s life that fans have never seen before can now be done? Apparently so. Los

Angeles-based BiteSize Entertainment, the new vertically integrated, multi-platform entertainment studio run by Ron Bloom, has optioned the rights to bestselling author David E. Stanley and Dr. David Gruder’s book Conversations with the King: Journals of a Young Apprentice and will adapt the book into a feature film titled “Growing Up Graceland.” The film will be produced through BiteSize’s feature film production arm, led by Academy Award® winning producer Gene Kirkwood (“Rocky,” “New York, New York,” “The Pope of Greenwich Village,” “Gorky Park”) and Ross Elliot. “Growing Up Graceland” will be based on David Stanley’s seventeen-year spiritual journey with his stepbrother and mentor Elvis Presley. Stanley moved into Graceland when he was four-years old and Presley quickly became his father figure and mentor. Growing up to become one of Presley’s most trusted aides; David witnessed Presley’s extraordinary behind-thescenes gifts that few ever talked about. He was also one of the only people Elvis confided in about his spiritual search for meaning during the final years of his life. “We plan on home growing this movie. Plans are to shoot some of it in Nashville and some in Memphis,” reveals Oscar winning producer Gene Kirkwood during a recent visit to Nashville. “And we’ll be using a lot of the local people here too. But this will be somewhat of a small movie, similar to how we did the original Rocky movie—with a lot of unknowns. Plans are to use an unknown actor for the lead role of Elvis. This will be the role of a lifetime for some lucky young actor! I’ve always wanted to do an Elvis movie but I could never find the exact project until now. I’m very happy to have Nashville as part of this project,” he shares. Mr. Kirkwood says he’s very pleased with the overall script, which took 6 months to complete. But the story is not really from Elvis’ point of view. He says, “It’s

David’s, from his point of view of his years of living at Graceland. After meeting David, reading his book, and listening to his stories, I realized there is another side of the Elvis phenomenon… a bigger story… and one that has never been told,” said Kirkwood. “My family moved from living on a military base in Germany to Graceland in March 1960. I was fouryears-old and when I walked up the steps of the Graceland mansion, this was a true fairytale for me,” recalls author David Stanley during a recent chat at an Opryland Hotel restaurant. “The beautiful part of this story is when my mom, myself and my two brothers first moved to Graceland, Elvis was just so accepting of us. I had just lost my dad thru a divorce and I was an angry little kid. I didn’t understand what divorce was. But Elvis spent a lot of time trying to explain to me that my dad still really loved me.” David further recalls how the superstar performer would take on the role of being a compassionate and caring adult to a young boy who was looking for a father. “Over the years Elvis constantly instilled in me about the importance of honoring your parents and elders; being respectful to people and don’t forget where you came from,” David fondly remembers. According to film producer Kirkwood and author Stanley, the Growing Up Graceland movie will show the world another side of Elvis the fans have never seen before. “I’m tired of hearing all of the stories of how Elvis died. This movie will be different. With Gene’s (Kirkwood) vision for producing films, I know this movie will touch the hearts of people around the world.” Kirkwood readily agrees and adds, “This will be a family oriented film. It’s almost like a Christmas story from The Waltons. I feel really great about working on this project.” The film version of Growing Up Graceland will be released sometime next year.

Woodcuts’ Featured Artist of the Month:

Kennith Humphrey

Kennith’s acrylic painting “Gone Fishing”

Woodcuts Framing and Gallery’s featured Artist of the Month for April is Kennith Humphrey, a native of Vicksburg, Mississippi. The 47-year-old painter/artist developed an interest in painting as a young child, “My whole family is very creative,” Kennith says proudly. The subject matter of most of his oils on canvas and pastel/acrylics on paper, are African-American figures involved in the activities of daily life. The people depicted are stylized, sometimes cubist, and embody the emotion of their activity. “What I paint about depends on my emotions for that day. You ought to see the ones I do of anger. I usually paint over them,” says Kennith

with a laugh Among the art displayed on the walls of his childhood home, was a painting by an uncle. Kennith recalls that observing real artwork from a family member made the idea of being an artist realistic and attainable. Unfortunately, outside the home he didn’t find as much enthusiasm for his dream of one day becoming an artist. He readily admits that during his years in grammar school, he was much more interested in drawing and painting than the more mundane lessons of reading/writing/arithmetic, his teachers had to offer. Describing himself as a self-taught artist, Kennith found a mentor in his

half brother, the late William Tolliver, a successful artist. “He showed me a lot of things about painting,” recalls Kennith. Several of his works hang in the American Embassy in Portugal. In 2002, one of his paintings was selected to represent the VII USA International Ballet Competition and he has had successful gallery showings in San Francisco, Oakland, California, Anchorage, Alaska, Atlanta, Georgia and Martha’s Vineyard, New York. Currently on display at Woodcuts are several of Kennith’s acrylic on canvas pieces, including Jazz Set and Gone Fishing. Visit Woodcuts at: www.woodcutsfineart.com

RYCH’S CORNER Brandy Addresses Violent Relationships in Temptaions

KAM’S KOLUMN Sugar in the Blood, Family’s Story of Slavery

By Rych McCain, twitter@rychmccain and Facebook www.rychmccainhollyhoodnotes.blogspot. c o m ,w w w. r y c h m c c a i n r e v i e w w a go n l . blogspot.com

She has been a superstar fixture on the Hollywood scene since she was a teenager. She has sold over 40 million records worldwide, appeared on dozens of major magazine covers, acted in film and on TV and played live concerts around the globe. Brandy Norwood’s latest album “Two Eleven” debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B Album chart. In her latest film role, Norwood plays Melinda, an abused woman as the result of a violent relationship in Tyler Perry’s latest offering “Temptation.” This role marks her return to the big screen after taking off a few years to be a mom. How did the character of Melinda relate with her? Norwood lights up, “You know what, I was so attracted to my character because of the struggles she had to face in different relationships. Sometimes women lose themselves in relationships and they camouflage and try to put on a different mask to make the relationship work. In her past, I felt that she found herself doing that and she did it too much where it really broke her down, tore her up, made her weak, vulnerable and now she’s on the run. Somewhere she thinks that’s brave and it’s not. It was so great to read a script like that and see the character unfold and almost have to be forced to confront her past so she can move on and become the woman that God created her to be.” What was Norwood’s reaction to being in a Tyler Perry movie? She reflects, “I was so happy to get a call from Tyler Perry mainly because he’s Tyler Perry! He said I want you to be in a movie and I said ‘You do – yes!’ What, am I going to say no? I was so happy to get a call from him and to be apart of something so intense and so real and so dramatic and so twisty and turny. I was so thankful be-

cause he could have picked anybody.” As a child star growing up in the public eyes, Norwood has been through her share of trials and tribulations. What would she say to younger actors and recording artists who are coming behind her? “I would say to these young artists who have to live their lives in the public eye, make sure your foundation is set. I’ve always had my mom and my dad…I think it’s important when you have your foundation. You’re going to go through stuff. You’re going to experience things but when you can come back to something solid, it will get you back on track. I’ve gotten completely off track with a foundation but because of my foundation I was able somehow to pull it together. I think that is really important. Everybody goes through hardships in their life but it’s a little bit tougher for people who do it in the public eye--especially for people who are finding out who they are in life. Like Justin Bieber is discovering who he is now. He’s just a kid and he’s doing all of that with the pressures of the world in the spirit of opinion. But if he keeps his foundation he’ll be alright.” Norwood’s next concert appearance will be in Nashville, TN., on June 8th and she’ll be on the card at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans July 4-7th.

TERRI’S REVIEW

“Kid Pickers: How to Turn Junk into Treasure

Kam Williams

Book Review by Kam Williams

“In the late 1630s, lured by the promise of the New World, Andrea Stuart’s earliest known maternal ancestor, George Ashby, set sail from England to settle in Barbados. He fell into the life of a plantation sugar owner by chance… The swiftly increasing demands for sugar worldwide would not only lift [him] from abject poverty… but it would also bind together ambitious white entrepreneurs and enslaved black workers in a strangling embrace. Stuart uses her own family story— from the 17th C. through the present— as the pivot for this epic tale of migration, settlement, survival, slavery and the making of the Americas.” -- Excerpted from the Book Jacket Although Andrea Stuart was born and raised in the Caribbean, she never knew much about her ethnic heritage growing up. As a curious adult, she started digging around in library archives and was able to trace part of her ancestry as far back as the 17th C. to a white plantation owner of a sugar plantation on Barbados. Being mixed, Ms. Stuart also tried to find her African roots, but that search proved far more challenging, given how her earliest black Bajan ancestors had been brought to the island as slaves. That meant they’d been considered property, and there weren’t as many records to be found about chattel. Nevertheless, the bilingual (English and French) writer approached the project like an investigative journalist, eventually unearthing a cornucopia of fascinating factoids about her gnarly family tree. And the upshot of that tireless effort is Sugar in the Blood, a book

by Andrea Stuart, Knopf Books Hardcover, $27.95, 378 pages, Illustrated ISBN: 978-0-307-27283-6

that is as much the intimate tale of one incestuous clan as it is a universal one shared by many folks from the region who have both European and African blood running through their veins. The gifted author evidences quite a way with words here, employing her vivid imagination to spin historical tidbits into a compelling page-turner guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat, ala a best-selling suspense novel. Yes, she takes poetic license periodically, but merely to extrapolate and plausibly fill the penumbras lying betwixt and between solid kernels of truth. Over the course of this centuriesspanning opus, we’re treated to a host of colorful characters passing time in and around the author’s ancestral plantation, with whites generally enjoying easy sexual access to enslaved females as well as the fruits of black labor. Curiously, Ms. Stuart treats both sides with an almost affectionate understanding, even addressing the enduring skin color issue which has left her homeland hopelessly stratified after generations of race mixing. A credible, cross-cultural examination chronicling the unresolved master-slave relationship still reflected in today’s Barbados where, as Faulkner sagely surmised about America’s Deep South, “The past is never dead. It isn’t even past.”

Review by Terri Schlichenmeyer

It was just about the coolest thing you’d ever seen. Most people might’ve described the old bottle as garbage. True, it was dirty and half-sticking out of the ground. Yes, it was junk. But there was writing on the side and a date on the bottom. It was blue and when the sun hit it just right, despite the dirt, you could see something awesome. Yeah, most people would call that bottle “garbage,” but you call it a treasure. And in the new book “Kid Pickers” by Mike Wolfe (with Lily Sprengelmeyer), you’ll meet folks who would agree. When American Picker Mike Wolfe was your age, he loved nothing more than “picking through junk.” His room, he says, was filled with “rusty gold.” He especially loved bikes and old comic books. “I never thought of it as junk,” he says. “To me, this was treasure.” Picking is fun, you see, and becoming a Kid Picker is easy: having this book is a good start, and the tools you need are in your head. You shouldn’t even need a lot of money because some of the best finds are free or cheap. All you have to do is start looking for things that interest you. Neighborhood garage sales are great places to pick. They’re also great places to practice using your bargaining skills, so you’ll need to know how to negotiate. Don’t be afraid to bargain down because it never hurts to ask, right? You’ll find a lot of great stuff at auctions, but that takes practice, lots of caution, and an adult’s help. Keep your eyes open and know what you’re bidding on, or you could end up with something you’d never want in a million years!

Thrift shops are picker’s paradise. Antique stores have tons of treasures. Flea markets don’t have real fleas, but they do have lots of goodies. You might also have good luck picking within your own family’s attic or barn. Then, no matter where you find your prize, try to find out more about it. Who owned it? Where did it come from? Is it worth lots of money, or is it just cool? And finally… what are you going to do with it? Remember thinking you might strike it rich with something you dug out of a barn, a box, or a bucket of dirt? Give your kids those dreaming possibilities, too, by giving them “Kid Pickers” to read. Author and History Channel star Mike Wolfe speaks to the hearts of junk yard pups with a bit of biography and even more useful hints. I liked the encouragement that kids get here – including advice on picking their family history – and I loved the pictures. I also think the profiles of other young pickers are just plain fun. Alas, the words “ask permission” are somewhat lacking here so, before you send your kids out with this book, be sure to repeat them a few times. With that reminder fresh in their heads, 7-to-12-year-olds will find “Kid Pickers” to be a goldmine.

HBCU Continued from page 1A last year and designated for HBCUs. The goal of the grant program is to assist the HBCUs in strengthening their academic resources, financial management systems, endowment-building capacity and physical plants. Maintaining the campus buildings is of particular interest to the college because the structures were recently recognized nationally and on the state level as a historic site. Since its inception, 97 schools have received the grant. Fisk was awarded $1,356,300 from the program while TSU received $4,851,718. “HBCUs have made enduring, even staggering contributions to American life despite the steep financial challenges many have faced. The grants will help these important institutions continue to provide their students with the quality education they need to compete in the global economy,” said U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan. That’s not the only money that will be coming in. Belmont University recently announced its donation of $100,000 to ABC’s endowment to be used for student scholarships. “This is unprecedented. It speaks to the vision of President Fisher at Belmont as to what an investment in education means here in the Athens of The South and to

model the type of institutional scholarship and make sure institutions like ABC have the support of community education and make sure our mission flourishes,” said ABC President Forrest Harris. Currently, 200 students are enrolled at ABC. Harris said they plan to launch an aggressive recruitment plan that will attract 100 new students each year to take advantage of the scholarship program. Tuition at ABC is currently a little more than $4,000 a semester. It’s a college worth investing your money in, according to 2012 graduate Daryll Ballard. He says the students walk away with more than just a degree. “I will always cherish ABC. There, I was able to build myself into the budding scholar that I am today. I am very proud of her. She is like my mother. I am thrilled about (the HBCU status). I always considered her an HBCU. How can you not be an HBCU and be responsible for changing the world? ABC was, and still is, a training ground for the non-violent resistance strategy of the Civil Rights Movement. James Bevel, John Lewis, Bernard Lafayette, Julius Scruggs. These are some of ABC’s finest. To me, ABC has been an HBCU since its inception,” said Ballard.

Stuart Continued from page 1A wrote the story in 1996 for the now defunct Emerge Magazine. Edited by Florestine Purnell and then Emerge editor-in-chief George Curry, the story about Kemba Smith raised national attention on the federal government’s tough mandatory minimum sentencing law spurred by the 1980’s cocaine `epidemic’ ravaging many neighborhoods across the nation. The story is credited with mobilizing citizens across the nation to demand Congress and then President Clinton revisit the drug law which oft times resulted in harsher prison sentences for minor offenders, particularly women. Smith, of Richmond, Va., was among thousands of Black women required to serve lengthy federal prison sentences despite being first time, non-violent offenders. While a student she had become involved with a much older man who showered her with attention and belongings as he lured her into his drug ring as a pawn. In the end, the boyfriend was killed in a drug deal and Smith, who had been arrested earlier and was with child, was sentenced to 24 ½ years in prison with no chance for parole based on the mandatory minimum sentencing law. Her punishment was commuted in December, 2000 to time served—6 ½ years—by President Clinton in the last few weeks of his second term in office. “It is really a honor to have my work recognized in this manner,” said Stuart a Tennessee State University graduate who began his career in the Nashville news media and earned his Master’s degree in 1971 from Columbia’s graduate school of journalism. “It’s even more important that Emerge gave me a chance to write this story and put a spotlight on the fact that two wrongs don’t make a right. What Kemba did by getting involved with this group, and she will tell you, was wrong. What the government did in trying to respond this `crisis’ that began destroying people, families and neighborhoods was no better.” The list of 100 stories by Columbia journalism alumni (listed on the Internet as centennial.journalism.columbia.edu) includes an impressive roster of work covered by graduates of the school since it was

founded 100 years ago. Among the stories, recommended by a panel of outside judges and voted on by fellow alumni, are stories about World War I and World War II, the Great Depression, the collapse of racial segregation in the South, Watergate, the fall of the Soviet Union, famine in Africa, Catholic Church clergy abuse, Hurricane Katrina’s destruction in the South, the Tsunami devastation in Japan and the election of Barak Obama as President of the United States. “We compiled this collection by culling the school’s archives, researching the recipients of a wide array of journalism prizes, consulting with colleagues and scouring some of the best journalism ever produced,” said a Columbia statement regarding the selection process of the 100 stories. The selection process began in the fall of 2011 with a panel of Columbia and a group of “distinguished judges” asked to vote for their favorite 50 stories. In 2012, alumni were invited to nominate and vote on the selections they thought were “most worth” of inclusion for another 50 stories, the journalism school statement said. The result was 100 stories for 100 years. Stuart’s 10,000 word report is captioned “Race and The Drug War” in the Columbia listing. It is included in a commemorative compilation book released earlier this month by the journalism school at the finale event of its 100 year celebration. The Columbia honor is the second journalism peer honor for “Kemba’s Nightmare” since Stuart’s magazine story was published. In 2002, Stuart’s story was cited in the book “Muckraking! The Journalism That Changed America,” The book, compiled and edited by Judith (now deceased) and William Serrin, veteran reporter and now journalism professor at New York University, was recognized as an example of works that changed the nation in the past century. Smith has rebuilt her life since being released from prison. She has completed her college degree, married and published her own book in 2011. “Poster Child, The Kemba Smith Story,” is a first-person account of her ordeal and the consequences of her young adult decisions.

try. One need not necessarily embrace my understanding of the Christian faith in order to understand that what occurred this week was morally, socially and legally reprehensible. Questions continued to be raised about this tragedy: Why did this event occur? What will be done for the victims? What will be done to the perpetrators? One of the most important questions for me concerned the role of the Christian in the midst of tragedy: How can those who love the Lord, even in the midst of tragedy, help individuals and families in the healing process? Jesus was intimately familiar with both tragedy and loss. As the son of God (John 3:16)

5K Walk/Run to Honor Life and Legacy of Mr. Glenn A. Fleming NASHVILLE, TN — On Saturday, April 20th Daniel Payne Outreach Ministries will sponsor The Glenn A.

ditionally, in that our nation is focused on reducing obesity in our youth, the 5K walk and run is an opportunity for us to fellowship with our community partners in a forum that promotes healthy habits and lifestyle choices.” “Glenn’s favorite expression ‘Acts of Love and Kindness Counteracts Meanness and Hate’ compels us to think critically and continue to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our families,” said Rev. Sidney F. Bryant, pastor of Payne Chapel AME Church and Chief Executive of Daniel Payne Ministries. “ As we miss Glenn, we take comfort in the knowledge that our outreach is forever enhanced by his model of service, and we look forward to participating in this run with our community partners to mirror our mission for the comprehensive health and wellness of our families.” Daniel Payne Outreach Ministries has served the East Nashville community for fifteen years through three major initiatives.

or God incarnate (John 1:14), he relied on the power of God to be influential in the healing process. His physical presence with those who were suffering (e.g., the family of Lazarus, the demon possessed boy and the women who was to be stoned) affirmed their humanity, restored the belief in God and/or caused them to move beyond their moments of conflict, crisis or calamity. In many instances, Jesus helped them to achieve an inward as well as an outward peace and assurance that facilitated their healing process. Also, Jesus prayed earnestly for those whom he loved as well as his enemies (see Matthew 5:44). Prayer connects us with God and the higher

virtues or ideals of life (e.g., faith, hope and love) as it prevents us from us from walking or entertaining the “low road” of life (e.g., despair, bitterness and hatred). Prayers of thanksgiving (thanking God for those who lived), prayers of intercession (e.g., prayers on behalf of those who are suffering) and prayers of petition (e.g., asking God for comfort, healing and God’s abiding presence) are essential for the healing of people and the restoration of communities. Let us always embrace the “high road” of civility and godliness through prayer, as our nation begins the healing process.

Is God With Us During Tragedy?

Thoughts and prayers go out to all family, friends and community’s affected by senseless violence. In Nashville TN, the family of 16 year old Jonathan Johnson, he was shot and killed while heading to catch his school bus and in Boston MassaElder “X” Lawson chusetts, bombs killed 3 people and injured over 100 during a marathon. One of the three killed, 8 year old Martin Richard, he was standing by the finish line. Tragedy’s like this can bring people closer to the Lord and even cause some to question the Lord and move away from him. Some will say it was God’s “will” others will say “if there is a God why would he allow such a thing to happen?” There is no easy answer when experiencing the death and also mental and physical

pain brought on by tragedy. John 11:1-35, “Jesus wept” God does identify with our suffering. When Jesus wept for the passing of Lazarus he wept because he understands how we feel about human loss, he wept because the experience of being separated from someone we care about is emotional as well as overwhelming, Jesus wept out of love. The love of Jesus is what allowed him to die on the cross for us, the love for all of us is what caused God to raise Jesus from the dead. We do mourn the loss of friends and family, allow the Justice of the Lord to run its course in all its forms for those responsible for acts against humanity. Remember, God raised Jesus from the dead to show us death is not the end, he has all power. You have the power to “Pursue perfection to impact an imperfect world” by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior. Roman’s 10:9-10, “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.” Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ who sits at

your right hand I come before you asking for healing, heal the hearts and minds of everyone experiencing the loss of a loved one, a friend, a family member and those suffering in their bodies. Lord during emotional times such as these it’s hard for us at times to see you, to hear you, and to even trust you, but I ask right now Lord that you manifest your Holy Spirit to those in such a way they not only feel and see your presence, but that a unbreakable relationship with you is forged where one is lacking, a relationship with you is started where there was none, and forgiveness of sin’s are made where confessions were made. Lord I ask you to rain your spirit of Justice on those everywhere and in particular to the persons responsible for the shooting of Jonathan Johnson and the bombing in Massachusetts, Jesus you said in your word, we have not because we ask not, we ask these things in your name Jesus, Amen.

Three Ways to Erase Failure Everyday Joy by Regina Prude

Regina M. Prude

… But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 3:13-14 NIV One of my favorite keys on the computer keyboard is “delete.” Whatever would we do without “Del”? So cool. So conveniently located within easy reach of your right pinky finger. Typed something you don’t want any more? The simple solution is—just delete it. The Apostle Paul could not have known he was writing about our computer keyboards when he recommended his one premier

strategy for facing the failures or regrets of the past—delete! It’s a formula to use in meeting this problem. We all struggle from the helplessness of forgetting the past. That applies to our personal failures as well as remembering actions of other people who failed us. When we remember past hurts, we lament with the psalmist who wrote: Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.—Psalm 41:9 It’s as if the writer of that psalm could see you. You opened the front door, pulled out a chair, and invited your guest to eat at your table. Then something unexpected happened. You got kicked in the shin. The amazing thing about reading this passage is that it is probably not about you, me or even the writer…but about Jesus with Judas at His side. So, if He took it, what did you expect? I remember talking to a woman once who had great regrets about past missteps in her life. As I sought to minister to her hurts, we talked about obstacles and disappointments she experienced.

I remember saying that the only sure way to move forward is to forget the unhappiness of all those bitter yesterdays. She couldn’t allow them to ruin her life. So, let’s do the three things Paul recommended to the church at Philippi. First, forget whatever is behind you. Hit “delete” and never let it come back. Second, reach for the wonderful new things in front of you. Life is so short; there is absolutely no time to carry old burdens. You have a new goal, a new task. Third, God has given you a sure promise! The power to win a guaranteed prize. With the Lord as our Champion, just hit “delete!” and press on. © Regina M.

Anger, Stress and You! Seminar

The 18th Annual Celebration of

Jazz on the Triangle

Mary Margaret Gascho Photography

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 explore 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.

Justice Department Seeks to Shut Down Mo’ Money Taxes Return-Preparation Firm and Its Owners WASHINGTON – The United States has filed a civil injunction lawsuit seeking to shut down Mo’ Money Taxes, a Memphis, Tenn., based tax-preparation chain that at one time operated as many as 300 offices in 18 states, the Justice Department announced today. The United States accuses Mo’ Money Taxes and its owners, Markey Granberry and Derrick Robinson, and store manager Eumora Reese of creating and maintaining a business environment that encourages the preparation of fraudulent federal income tax returns.

The government suit alleges that the defendants promote a culture that favors volume and profits over accuracy and integrity, and creates an environment where fraudulent return preparation and tax-law violations flourish. According to the complaint, Mo’ Money Taxes’ managers, licensees and employees prepare fraudulent returns that cause their customers to incorrectly report their federal tax liabilities and underpay their taxes and charge customers bogus and unconscionably high fees. The complaint alleges that the defendants style themselves as savvy marketers and promoters of the

Mo’ Money Taxes brand and image – as evidenced by their commercials – and that Granberry and Robinson decided to change the business’s name following bad publicity in 2012 surrounding customer allegations that Mo’ Money Taxes failed to provide tax refunds to customers in a reasonable amount of time, if at all. According to the complaint, Granberry and Robinson now do business under the name Marquis Taxes and, along with Reese, under the name Southern King Taxes. According to the complaint, the defendants encourage Mo’ Money preparers to · Falsely claim the earned-income credit; · Claim improper filing status; · Claim bogus education credits; · Improperly prepare returns using paystubs rather than employer-issued W-2 forms; · Fabricate bogus W-2 forms; · File tax returns without customers’ consent; · Sell false and deceptive loan products; and · Charge deceptive and unconscionable fees. The complaint cites alleged examples of Mo’ Money Taxes customers in Memphis; Atlanta; Richmond, Va.; Jackson, Miss.; and Nashville, Tenn., whose returns had such fraudulent claims. The complaint also refers to several state-government actions related to Mo’ Money Taxes’ sale of refund-anticipation loans and charging of undisclosed or improper fees. The complaint alleges that the estimated tax loss from fraudulent tax return preparation at Mo’ Money Taxes offices in Memphis, Atlanta, Richmond and Jackson in 2011 exceeds $9 million.

Return preparer fraud, claiming false income or expenses to secure larger refundable credits such as the earned-income credit, and identity theft are among the IRS’s “Dirty Dozen” Tax Scams for 2013. “The nation’s tax system relies on the integrity of tax preparers,” said Kathryn Keneally, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Tax Division. “Most tax preparers are honest. We owe it to them and to all American taxpayers to use appropriate law enforcement tools to stop those who prepare fraudulent tax returns or who lure customers with deceptive loan products.” “Americans understand that the timely and equitable collection of tax revenues is essential to ensuring the financial security of our citizens and nation as a whole,” said Edward L. Stanton III, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee. “Those who abuse the tax filing process by fraudulently diverting public revenues into their own pockets are essentially stealing from every American and should expect to be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.” The United States previously obtained a permanent injunction against Toney Fields and Trumekia Shaw, who operated a Mo’ Money Taxes location in Nashville. In the past decade the Justice Department’s Tax Division has obtained injunctions against hundreds of taxreturn preparers and tax-fraud promoters. Information about these cases is available on the Justice Department website. For more information about choosing a tax return preparer, see the IRS website and the IRS YouTube Channel.

True Blue Experience Day Attracts Prospective MTSU Students MURFREESBORO, TN — Nearly 60 high school students, many of them underclassmen, and 120 people total participated in the April 12 True Blue Experience Day on the Middle Tennessee State University campus. Melinda Thomas, director of recruiting in the Office of Admissions, said the last of the 2012-13 recruitment period ended on a strong note. “True Blue Experience is our opportunity to let prospective students and their families see how great of an institution we have,” Thomas said. “We have over 100 major programs and lots of student organizations, but people don’t get to see what MTSU is all about until they actually get here, so that’s what True Blue Experience is. “Today (Friday), we’re wrapping up our last preview day of the recruitment season and it’s gone extremely well. We had a lot of positive feedback from parents and students. We hope to continue the event next year.” Students came from across the region to view university facilities and talk to advisers, admissions personnel, faculty, administrators and staff.

Wells Fargo Creates New Banking Store Format SAN FRANCISCO — Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) announced it has launched a new banking store concept, the neighborhood bank format, that has been created to deliver the kind of on-site banking experience that Wells Fargo customers have come to expect, but in a smaller format that allows the company to offer store locations with personalized service, in settings not suitable for its larger stores. The new store format is approximately 1,000 square feet and offers a paperless, secure workflow as well as wireless technology that helps the team provide faster service; it will also feature new large-screen ATMs. The first store using the new design will open in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, D.C. on April 15th. The design for a new Wells Fargo traditional store is typically between 3,000 and 4,000 square feet. “With this new store concept, we’ll be able to offer person to person sales and service along with leading banking technology in settings that previously would have discouraged us from building a store,” said Jonathan Velline, head of Wells Fargo ATM Banking and Store Strategy. “Stores are central to our strategy of providing excellent service and meeting our customers’ financial needs. This new neighborhood bank concept complements our traditional stores to help us bring the Wells Fargo store experience to more customers.” Velline said in designing the new store format Wells Fargo paid special attention to creating areas within the smaller layout where team members and customers can conduct business and have important financial conversations, including in private. Advanced technology allowed for the elimination of paper-driven back-office processes, increasing space efficiency and creating new store location opportunities. This new store design also offers technology found in traditional Wells Fargo stores, such as ATM software that anticipates a customer’s preferred transactions, image deposits, instant issue debit cards, and eReceipts. It also will have wireless tablets and phones that team members will use to serve customers. A free wireless hotspot will also be available for customers to use. After hours, the store transitions into a smaller lobby format, providing customer’s access 24/7 to several ATMs that dispense $1, $5 and $100 bills in addition to the $20 bills a typical ATM offers. “We expect to evolve the concept as we receive feedback from the new NoMa store,” Velline said. “At Wells Fargo, we believe in using customer feedback to ‘test and learn’ new products, technologies and services as we seek to continuously provide leading banking experience that meets all our customers’ financial needs.”

The Wells Fargo Neighborhood Bank Wells Fargo has designed a new store format to deliver the Wells Fargo experience. The neighborhood bank features a well-designed (about 1,000 sq. ft.) space allowing us to provide more convenience for our customers by fitting into more locations, while maintaining a full complement of team members to provide sales and service assistance. A paperless and secure workflow helps our team provide faster service, and supports the open floor plan. While smaller than a traditional store, the design allows ample space for team members to engage customers one-on-one throughout the store.

TEDxNashville Invites Speakers to Discuss What’s Next By Jason Luntz

NASHVILLE, TN — Nashville Charter Schools, Islam in Middle Tennessee, multi-tasking, and the future of NASA’s space program were but four of the topics discussed at TEDxNashville this year. Held at The Tennessee Performance Arts Center (TPAC), the conference invited some of the best local and national minds to speak on the future of a variety of topics. Based on the popular TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conferences, TEDx is a program that creates independently organized events throughout the world to deliver a TED-like experience. These conferences discuss ideas that are free of any commercial, political or religious agenda. The theme of the Nashville event was “next” According to TEDxNashville founder Bob Bradley, Nashville’s event is one of the largest TEDx events in the world. Originally, a 500-person event held at Montgomery Bell Academy in 2010, this year’s event had a sold out audience of 1,075 people at TPAC. Nearly 20 speakers and performers were each given 18 minutes in front of the audience. Highlights included the innovation and similarities of the Underground Railroad and the Internet; the power of saying no to opportunities and focusing on fewer tasks; the digital stamp we all leave through social media; as well as musical and spoken word performances. Todd May, manager of NASA’s Space Launch System Program office, excited the crowd by unveiling the organization’s latest space shuttle prototype. After explaining the shuttle will launch in 2017, he went on to say that it will allow us to visit mars and asteroids. “Weapons of mass destruction exist, and they exist in space, ” May joked. “If we don’t do something about it, the asteroids have already won.” Dr. Ossama Bahloul, the builder of an Islamic Center in Mufreesboro, TN, gave another message that left an impact. Titled “The Gift Of Difficulty”, the Imam discussed that while there were many issues in building his place of worship, the people who supported his vision made the task rewarding. Other speakers included Lead Public Schools founder Jeremy Kane, music producer Bob Ezrin, Broadway

Wessyngton Mansion Wessyngton Plantation was established by Joseph Wash-

ington (1770-1848), a distant cousin of President George Washington. Washington first came to the area in 1796 from Southampton County, Virginia bringing enslaved Africans and African Americans with him. The Wessyngton mansion was built in 1819 by enslaved workers on the plantation. Joseph named his estate in honor of his ancestors. The Washingtons trace their ancestry back to William de Hertburn in twelfth century England where their family owned a manor estate called Wessyngton─the Norman spelling of Washington. William de heartburn changed

Join the chorus of the Burial Database Project of Enslaved African Americans, which was formed in 2013 to identify, document and memorialize burial sites of the enslaved. Most American slave burial sites currently are abandoned or undocumented.

The family changed their surname to Washington when their first ancestors came to America in the 1600s. In 1848 at the death of Joseph Washington the plantation was inherited by his son George Augustine Washington (1815-1892). George increased the size of the plantation immensely. By 1860 Wessyngton became the largest tobacco plantation in the United States and the second largest producer in the world, growing 250,000 pounds of dark fired tobacco. Wessyngton contained 13,100 acres of land in one farm and over 2,000 acres in other parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. The plantation also held the largest enslaved African American population (274) in the state of Tennessee in 1860. Wessyngton remained in the hands of the Washington family until 1983 when it was purchased by Glen and Donna Roberts, the current owners. Before Wessyngton’s sale it was the largest farm in America still held by direct descendants of the original owner. The Wessyngton mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Washington Family Cemetery: There are four generations of the Washington family buried at Wessyngton: Joseph Washington (1770-1848), George A. Washington (1815-1892), Joseph E. Washington (1851-1915) and George A. Washington 2nd (1879-1964)

Wessyngton Cabin: The last remaining original slave cabin on the estate was destroyed in 2002 by a severe storm. In 1860 there were forty cabins which housed the African American families on the plantation. Today there is one reconstructed cabin on the property made from the logs from the original slave cabins. This cabin is similar to the original with some modern additions. In 1993 an archaeological dig was conducted at the site of the original slave quarters. Items found during the dig placed construction of these cabins between the 1820s and 1830s. During these years the plantation slave population was drastically increased with the purchase of more African Americans. The earliest cabins were constructed in the late 1700s and early 1800s and were closer to the Wessyngton mansion. Some of the slaves also lived in the Wessyngton mansion.

Wessyngton African American Cemetery: The Wessyngton African American Cemetery was started in the late1700s as a burial ground for the plantation’s enslaved population. The cemetery remained in use until 1928 by Wessyngton descendants. In 1995 a memorial monument was erected there by the descendants of Wessyngton’s original owner, Joseph Washington. There are approximately 200 graves in the cemetery. There are plans to have ground penetrating radar to locate all the graves in the cemetery.

Grizzlies 13-Game Win Streak Snapped

The action gets rough under the boards as the Memphis Grizzlies’ Zach Randolph battles the Los Angeles Clippers DeAndre Jordan for a rebound Saturday night. The Clippers edged the Grizzlies 91-87, leaving both teams tied with 54-26 records

By Ron Wynn

A possible playoff preview turned sour for the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday night as the Los Angeles Clippers snapped their 13-game homecourt winning streak 91-87 at Fed Ex Forum. The victory gave the Clippers a 3-1 series advantage and two tiebreakers in case the teams finish with identical records. Both were a half-game behind the Denver Nuggets going into the season’s final week at 54-26, but the Clippers would have one advantage over the NHL

Grizzlies as Pacific Division champions. The second came by virtue of taking the season series. Some familiar problems resurfaced as well for the Grizzlies. They scored only 14 points in the final quarter, bringing back memories of their ineffectiveness down the stretch last year in the playoffs against the Clippers. Their league-leading defense once more was strong, and never surrendered more than 25 points in any quarter. But they could not get key baskets in the final moments.

Zach Randolph’s recent shooting slump continued, as he made only seven of 17 from the floor, ending with 17 points. Marc Gasol had 18 to lead all scorers, along with 15 rebounds and seven assists. Tayshun Prince had one of his best scoring games since joining the team. He made three of four from three-point territory, five of 10 overall, and scored 13 points. Unfortunately, the Grizzlies didn’t get good nights from either Mike Conley (four of 11 and 12 points) or Jerryd Bayless (three of 10 and eight points). Memphis was six of 13 from behind the arc and limited the Clippers to six of 16. Chris Paul had a decent night, scoring 13 points with five assists. DeAndre Jordan hurt Memphis on the inside, with 16 points and 12 rebounds. “They earned the game,” Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins told the Associated Press. “They played better than us. They had (fewer) lulls than us.” The Clippers winning rally came mostly due to inspired play from various reserves, among them Grant Hill (five points) and Eric Bledsoe (five points and three rebounds). The Grizzlies’ usually strong bench was inconsistent, allowing the Clippers to go on a 14-point run and erase a five-point deficit. Once the starting five returned, Memphis closed the gap to one point, but then Randolph, Tony Allen and Randolph again missed from close

range. Allen had two misfires from the foul line and Conley failed to connect on a jumper. Still, thanks to their reliable defense, the Grizzlies kept the Clippers off the board and Randolph finally connected to bring the margin back to one point. Paul hit one of two free throws, giving Memphis the ball with 18.3 seconds remaining. Conley drove into the middle, but had his shot blocked by Jordan out of founds. The Grizzlies then tried a feed into Randolph on the low post, but it was poked away. Randolph thought he was fouled and gestured in anger toward the officials. The Clippers added two more free throws and ran out the clock. It was their third straight win on Memphis’ home court. Despite not allowing any player to score 20 points, or letting Paul dominate in the fourth as he’d done in the previous two LA wins, the Grizzlies still failed to make the big plays on offense in the final moments to secure a win. Their chances of securing either third place or homecourt advantage for the first round probably went down the drain with this loss. Their only slim chance was to win their final two games against Dallas on the road Monday and Utah at home Wednesday. They would still need Denver to lose both its final games and the Clippers one to move past both teams. If they finish tied with either team, they get the lower seed due to Denver and LA holding tiebreakers.

Predators Shortened Season Nears Its End By Ron Wynn

The Nashville Predators are limping toward the end of the season with little to play for except professional pride. They were shut out for the third time in five games Sunday night, losing 3-0 to the Detroit Red Wings at Bridgestone Arena. It was the league-leading ninth shutout loss suffered by the Predators, and left them just four points ahead of the Colorado Avalanche for worse record in the Western Conference. The nationally televised game (NBC Sports Network) also was their sixth loss in a row. Nashville had to win its last five games just to have a break-even season as they began the week 1520-8. They were also minus the services of veterans Paul Gaustad, Colin Wilson and Gabriel Bourque, all out the rest of the season due to injury and scheduled for surgery this week. Brandon Yip and Patric Hornqvist were also unavailable, forcing the Predators to use six rookies at various times. Filip Forsberg, the highly touted former Washington Capitals first round draft choice acquired in a trade, made his debut a day early. Forsberg arrived in Nashville Saturday from Sweden and participated in one practice. He logged nearly 19 minutes of ice time (18:37) and had two shots on goal. Though he finished with a minus-two rating, his play was deemed “OK” by Predators’ coach Barry Trotz. He even got in

a couple of power play shifts. Forsberg’s best play came on a slick pass to fellow rookie Taylor Beck during one of Nashville’s two power play opportunities. Forward Bobby Butler had Nashville’s best scoring chance in the third period. He was pulled down by Red Wings’ defenseman Jakub Kindl and awarded a penalty shot. But while trying to shift the puck onto his forehand, Butler lost possession and never got a shot off on the Red Wings’ goaltender Jimmy Howard. Butler acknowledged just losing the puck off his stick, blaming himself for the miscue. Only excellent play in goal by Pekka Rinne kept the score close. Rinne entered the game with a league-leading five shutouts and 2.29 goals against average. The Red Wings outshot Nashville 3222, and during the second period alone fired 16 shots on goal to the Predators’ four. Nashville had only nine shots on net the final two periods, after getting 13 in the opening period. While the Red Wings only had seven in the last period they got two goals, though the third was an empty net score that came with only 1:19 remaining. Detroit’s first goal came in the second period when Henrik Zetterbug took advantage of some sloppy passing by the Predators, picking up a turnover and firing it past Rinne. Johan Franzen took advantage of a weird bounce off the boards and scored at the 12:01 mark of the third period. That was the decider, with the final goal coming after the

The Detroit Red Wings’ Henrik Zetterberg (10) is greeted by his teammates after he scored the game’s first goal Sunday night. His score gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead against the Predators. The Red Wings eventually won 3-0, dealing the Predators’ their ninth shutout loss of the season and fifth defeat in a row. The win also kept the Red Wings ahead in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot

Predators had pulled Rinne and were pressing forward with an extra skater. The Red Wings perfectly executed a clearing play, found an open man near center ice and he easily fired into the open net. Nashville’s final two home games were Monday against Vancouver and April 23 against Calgary. They travel to Chicago for the final time Friday, then conclude the regular season with road games against Detroit April 25 and Columbus April 27. While they were not yet mathematically eliminated from playoff consideration, no one around the Predators was expressing much hope they could string together five straight wins, get 10 points and see where that (48 points) would leave them.

Instead, a more realistic option wa to try and and win at least three of the final five, and be a spoiler to their opponent’s playoff hopes. Vancouver, Monday’s foe, was tied for third in the Western Conference with 52 wins. Detroit was trying to maintain a streak of having made the playoffs 21 consecutive years. Columbus was only two points out of eighth place starting the week. Nashville could also ensure itself of finishing ahead of Calgary, who trailed them by only two points. Chicago had already clinched the division. Four of the final five games are on Fox Tennessee. Friday night’s game against Chicago is on SportSouth.

BY RON WYNN Focusing On Wrong End In SPorts

The release of the film “42,” coupled with an April 10 study by Major League Baseball showing Black participation at its lowest since 1959 (about eight percent), has triggered a wave of columns and discussions about the disappearing AfricanAmerican baseball player. MLB recently announced the formation of a select committee comprised to examine the situation and suggest solutions. As is so often the case when the topic turns to Blacks in sports, the emphasis gets placed on the wrong subject. While there’s certainly nothing bad about trying to get more Blacks playing baseball, more time and attention should be devoted to generating opportunities for Blacks in management and ownership. Even in the NBA, which at last count had a workforce over 80 percent Black, there was just ONE (1) African-American owner in 2013, Michael Jordan of the Charlotte Bobcats. He replaced the team’s previous owner and founder Robert Johnson. There is one Black minority owner in MLB, Magic Johnson with the Dodgers. The Williams sisters own a small percentage of the Miami Dolphins. But neither MLB nor the NFL has any team whose principal owner is Black. Last year there was an uproar when every vacant NFL coaching position went to whites. But that situation is unlikely to change unless there’s more Black control at the top. The Ravens’ Ozzie Newsome is widely respected as a savvy football executive. He was the main man responsible for orchestrating the Baltimore Ravens’ rise to the 2012 Super Bowl championship. He’s among a handful of Black general managers or main executives in pro sports. That’s an area where African-American presence lags far those numbers on the field. One thing Jackie Robinson never lived to see was the hiring of a Black field manager. He had passed by the time the Cleveland Indians made Frank Robinson the first Black to lead an MLB team in the mid-‘70s. Cito Gaston would win World Series’ titles as the Toronto Blue Jays’ manager, and Bob Watson would become Yankee GM. The late Bill Lucas was rising in the Atlanta Braves’ chain when he suffered a fatal illness. Blacks have made some gains in management, but they still are more prominent on the courts and fields than running teams. Just as the press box integrated far after the leagues, the executive suites aren’t exactly filled with Black faces. Some of this is due to the changing hiring policies among pro sports. Today lots of teams don’t want former players in non-field positions. They prefer college graduates with MBAs from prestigious schools steeped in the “metrics” approach to team management. But one thing pro teams could and should do is offer the same entry level opportunities for management they do for coaching and scouting. Give players the chance to learn the rudiments of operating a team, the nuances of trades and scouting. It might not trigger a flood of new Black general managers and eventually owners, but it would certainly be a good start.

SPRING FOOTBALL

Vandy Offense Gets Narrow Spring Game Win By Ron Wynn

The defense is often ahead of the offense in spring games, and that was almost the case Saturday until the Vanderbilt starters put together a desperation drive. The offense’s projected starters managed to get a narrow 17-15 victory in the annual Black & Gold Game before an estimated crowd of 14,000 at Vanderbilt Stadium. Making things more easy to digest for the Vandy staff was the comeback executed by senior QB Austyn CartaSamuels, slated to take over the reins this season. He completed a 44-yard pass to wide receiver Chris Boyd, saving a fourth and 25 situation from the 21-yard line. Several plays later, kicker Carey Spear hit a 25-yard field goal that gave the Gold its win. There were some special provisions enacted for the game. These included no hits on quarterbacks, though anytime officials whistled a play dead when defenders had a hand on a QB or a clear path to them that play was deemed a sack. Defenders registered 12 sacks under this system and had 19 tackles for losses. Top defenders were for the Black defense for Vince Taylor (two and a half tackles for a loss, one sack) and Adam Butler (two tackles for losses, one and a half sacks). Darien Bryant (two and a half sacks) and Torey Agee (two sacks) led the Gold defense. Wesley Tate was the leading rusher with 59 yards. He had a two-yard TD

Vanderbilt’s Wesley Tate, shown here in action last year, was the leading rusher in Saturday’s Black & Gold spring game. Tate is being touted as the team’s number one running back, and hopes to be the top rusher as Vanderbilt tries to duplicate its historic nine-win 2012 season. The Black rallied in the final minutes for 17-15 win over the Gold before 14,000 at Vanderbilt Stadium

run in the first half. Carta-Samuels completed 14 of 20 passes for 196 yards and a TD. He hit Jordan Matthews for a 13yard score in the third quarter. That gave the Black a temporary 14-0 lead. But the sensation of the day was freshman QB Johnny McCrary, who only enrolled at the school in January. He helped rally his team (the Gold) to a 15-14 lead with spectacular plays in the fourth quarter. One of them was a 49yard TD to Tip McKenzie with less than five minutes (4:40) remaining. The two then hooked up again for a successful two-point conversion, putting the Gold

Harrell’s RBI total stands at 50. Missouri made things even tougher for themselves by committing four errors. None of their five pitchers was effective. Starter Keaton Steele allowed nine runs (eight earned) in less than four innings (three and two-thirds). Vanderbilt had 39 runs and 54 hits over the three games against Missouri (12-20, 4-11 in the SEC). It was the first time the Commodores scored that many runs since a 2011 series with Tennessee.

Coming Next Week

The NBA playoffs are underway, and the Memphis Grizzlies face the Pacific Division champion Los Angeles Clippers in a firstround best of seven series. The NFL draft approaches, and we’ll have a story about the Titans’ first-round draft pick and later selections. Vanderbilt may have the finest baseball team in its history, and they head into the second half of SEC play ranked second in the nation.

ahead 15-14. Only Carta-Samuels final drive heroics kept McCrary and the Gold from a win. Patton Robinette was the Gold starter. He completed 11 of 15 passes for 101 yards and touchdown pass. He hit Jerron Seymour for a seven-yard TD with 10:24 to play. While McCrary’s passing was erratic (six of 13 for 108 yards and a TD) he brought a lot of excitement during his stint. Sadly, McCrary lost his father last Tuesday. That death left him without parents, as his mother died when he was nine. Vanderbilt coach James Franklin

ON THIS DAY

said almost all his teammates were going to Georgia with McCrary for the funeral Thursday. Franklin also was honored at halftime as “Tennessean of the Year.” He was voted that designation by the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame in recognition of the football team’s nine-win 2012 season. Vanderbilt also got two commitments during the game. One was quarterback Elijah Staley from Wheeler (Marietta, Georgia) and the other was defensive end Lloyd Tubman from Seneca (Louisville, Kentucky). They are the sixth and seventh commitments in the Class of 2014. The Black & Gold Game completes Vanderbilt’s spring practice. Tennessee concludes their sessions next Saturday with the Orange & White Game in Knoxville. As the final week began, the Volunteers were still unsure about who would be their starting quarterback. They also had not answered any questions about who would fill the vacancies left in the receiving corps by the early departures of two star wide receivers. Junior Justin Worley and redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman are the two top candidates to replace Tyler Bray at QB. Bray left after his junior year to enter the NFL draft. Coach Butch Jones said he wasn’t going to commit to any starter in the spring, and that incoming freshmen Josh Dobbs and Riley Ferguson would also have the opportunity to complete for the job when they enroll this summer. Both MTSU and TSU also continued their spring practices, with games coming later.

In 1966, the Boston Celtics made NBA history by naming center Bill Russell playercoach. He was the first Black coach in NBA history. Though the Celtics string of championships was snapped that season at eight by the Philadelphia 76ers, Russell would eventually lead the Celtics to two more titles. He retired after 13 seasons with 11 championship rings, the most won by any player. Russell revolutionized team defense and also anchored two NCAA championship teams and won an Olympic gold medal. The NBA Finals award is named after him, and he’s a member of the Naismith Hall of Fame.

Program Focusing on Veterans’ Needs During Time of Illness and the End of Life to Be Held April 24

NASHVILLE, TN — Each year, one in four deaths in the United States is that of a veteran. And while military service is a source of pride for many, certain memories or experiences may be very troubling for others. These are important considerations for healthcare providers as they serve those who have served our nation. On April 24, Alive Hospice will take a close look at

the needs of veterans in times of illness and the end of life with the Hospice Foundation of America’s annual “Living With Grief ” program. There is no cost for attending, but seating is limited and registration is required. To register or for more information, call 615-963-4732. This program will be held from 12:30 to 3:45 p.m. at Alive Hospice’s administrative office, located at 1718 Patterson St. in Nashville. Participants will view a prerecorded panel discussion produced by the Hospice Foundation of America. The afternoon will conclude with a time for conversation so that participants may share insights and ideas on providing care for veterans. Partici-

pants are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch. The Hospice Foundation of America designed this program to be informative and educational for healthcare professionals as they provide care for the growing population of veterans. Alive Hospice, a nonprofit organization, provides compassionate end of life care and grief support services in 12 Middle Tennessee counties. For more information about Alive Hospice, visit www.alivehospice.org or call 615-327-1085.
