JWP: Our very first button. Yeh. . . I recognized it right away (referring to
a photo button of he and Jesse Jackson I was wearing). Jesse and I were at

and remember now, I ran Jesse's campaign out of my house the same as I
did mine.
ED: Look at your hair . . . you had a lot of hair.

discussion.

bound advisor who aids every
student, grades 6-12, in preparing for college and ensures we're
all on the right track with the
proper mindset and goals. One
hundred percent of our students
who have graduated are attending college. The teachers are fabulous; they care for us and want
us to succeed now and in the
future. The students are great
and a sisterhood bond exists
between classes. The organizations such as LULAC, allow me to
become more involved in my
community and push me to
develop leadership skills.
Here's one easy way
to clean green: turn the
dial to cold water.
With most clothes,
you really don't need
hot water to get a good
cleaning. Up to 80% of
the energy used by
washing machines goes
into heating the water.
The higher the temperature of the water, the
more electricity you're
running and the higher
the cost in terms of
both energy use and
money.
Add in one of the
earth-friendly laundry
detergents available
everywhere these days
and chill out about any
harm to your clothes or
the environment. Tide
Cold Water has earned
the
Green
Good
Housekeeping Seal.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:
Dear Editor:
Declawing is a painful mutilation that involves severing
not just a cat’s nails, but whole
phalanges (up to the first joint),
including bones, ligaments, and
tendons. Depriving cats of
these necessary and important
body parts can cause personality changes (some cats become
depressed, withdrawn, fearful,
or refuse to use their litter
boxes), difficulty balancing and
walking, and chronic back and
joint pain as the cat’s shoulder,
leg, and back muscles weaken.
Cats may not have thumbs,
but they deserve to keep all the
digits they were born with.
Claws, couches, and curtains
can coexist peacefully if you
trim the tips off cats’ claws
weekly, provide plenty of
scratching posts, and cover furniture with contact paper or
another slippery material temporarily, if needed. To learn
more about how to save your
cat’s claws and your furniture,
check out 250 Things You Can
Do to Make Your Cat Adore You

Amazon.com)

Sincerely,
Lindsay Pollard-Post
A Little Bit of Faith: He is the Good Shepherd
Mrs. Colleen White
If you are a Christian,
Easter is one of the most
precious times of the year
for you. Easter is when we
take time to remember
Jesus Christ's death and resurrection. It is also a time
when we can reflect upon
our faith as well. This time
of reflection can allow us to
think about our walk with
Christ and whether or not
we are truly thankful for all
He has done for us. In the
book of John Jesus talks
about being a good shepherd to His flock and taking
care of them. He says, "I am
the good shepherd. The
good shepherd lays down his
life for the sheep" (John
10:11).
Our "good shepherd" has
laid down His life for us.
When He died upon the
cross, He was being our
"good shepherd". Jesus was
prepared to give His life for
us. He had to fulfill scripture. However, He gave His
life out of a deep love for His
sheep-- us. Without Jesus'
death, and subsequent resurrection, our Christian faith
would be entirely different.
We would not have the type
of relationship with Him that
we are able to have now.
Have you thought about
how much Jesus has sacrificed for you? Have you
been able to reflect upon
what the "good shepherd"
has done for you and your
family? It was not easy for
Him to give His life, but He
did what He had to do in
order for us to be able to
have a better relationship
with His father. None of us
are worthy! We are all filthy
rags. Once we recognize
how unworthy we are, we
can then begin to understand what a wonderful
thing Jesus did for us during
Holy Week.
So instead of thinking
about Easter baskets and
cotton bunny rabbits, let's
instead remember what
Easter is truly about; Easter
is about Christ dying for you,
me, and the entire world.
Perhaps instead of saying
Happy Easter, we should say
Happy Resurrection Day.
Amen? Amen.
"A SURVEY OF THE BOOK OF ROMANS" Romans 16: 1-27
PERSONAL GREETINGS TO WONDERFUL CHRISTIAN HELPERS
Rev. Johnny Calvin Smith
In the final chapter of this
grand epistle, the Apostle Paul
extends commendable remarks
with regard to individuals who
aided him in the gospel ministry. The first individual that
received praise from Paul was
Phoebe in verses 1-2. Phoebe
occupied a prominent place in
the church; she was a servant
of the church in Cenchrea, a
seaport east of Corinth.
Having praised Phoebe for
her work in verses 1-2, Paul in
verses 3-4 sends greeting to a
special couple he met as tentmakers in Corinth whose
names were Priscilla and
Aquila. They were very dear to
Paul and had a profound min-
istry in Corinth (Acts 18:1-3).
This wonderful couple was a
great aid to the ministry of
Apollos in Ephesus (Acts 18:19),
for Acts 18:26 says - "And he
(Apollos) began to speak boldly
in the synagogue: whom when
Aquila and Priscilla had heard,
they took him unto them, and
expounded unto him the way of
God more perfectly." Not only
was this couple a great help to
Paul in his ministry, but the
Apostle Paul disclosed that
Aquila and Priscilla risked their
lives for Paul (v. 4).
Moreover, Paul continues to
send a special greeting to
another Christian by the name
of Epaenetus, who Paul said
was the "first fruits of Achaia
unto Christ" (v. 5). Epaenetus'
name in the Greek means
"praised." In verse 6, Mary is
mentioned for her labor. She
labored to the point of exhaus-
tion. What a wonderful testimony, for our churches need
more "Marys"! The two individuals referred to in verse 7
were held in high regard by the
Apostle Paul. He probably met
them in one of the numerous
prisons of the Roman Empire.
From verses 8-16, Paul continued to communicate high praises to various Christian individuals, conveying his tender affection for these individuals. Paul
ends this commendable tender
section by saying in verse 16 "Salute one another with a holy
kiss." As we greet one another
with kisses, let's make sure that
they are holy!
In his final remarks to this
church, Paul cautioned the
believers to watch out for spiritual enemies. We are to stay
away from false teachers who
are not serving Christ (vs. 1718). False teachers are good at
deceiving the minds of naïve
people. Paul was glad that
these believers were obedient,
but he was concerned that they
were "wiser unto that which is
good, and simple concerning
evil" (v. 19). Paul noted in verse
20 that Satan's power in influencing false teachers will be
destroyed, for verse 20 says "And the God of peace shall
bruise Satan under your feet
shortly. The grace of our Lord
Jesus Christ be with you.
Amen." From verses 21-24,
Paul sends greetings from
many associates who were with
him as he wrote this epistle to
the Romans. Paul closes this
grand epistle with a wonderful
benediction in verses 25-27
which begin "Now to him that
is of power to stablish you
according to my gospel, and the
preaching of Jesus Christ."
May God Bless!
From a Biblical Perspective: False Teachings
Evangelist Waydell Nixon
Continued from March 2228, 2012...
(3) THE A.D. 70 DOCTRINE.
Whereas the premillennialists
believe most prophecy is yet to
be fulfilled, another group contends that all prophetic events
were consummated with the
destruction of Jerusalem in A.D.
70. They speak of their philosophy as “realized eschatology,”
by which they mean that the
final things were all realized by
A.D. 70, including the second
coming of Christ, the day of
judgement, the end of the
world, and the resurrection of
the dead.
(4) Anglo-Israelism. Herbert
W. Armstrong taught in his lifetime, and his Worldwide
Church of God continues to
teach, that Old Testament
prophecies regarding Ephraim
and Manasseh were actually
references to Great Britain and
the United States! His followers
believe the kingdom of God is
literal government which is to
be set up on earth at the second coming of Christ.

has been preaching the gospel
for 53 years. He currently
serves as Minister at Eastside
Church of Christ in Ennis,
Texas.
Ask Gwendolyn Baines “874”: My father left years ago and now returns sick!
by Gwendolyn Baines
NNPA Columnist
Dear Gwendolyn:
I am upset with my mother.
This is the problem: My father
left us 30+ years ago when he
was a young man. My mother
had to struggle with six children.
She did not seek the usual welfare assistance. Mom worked
two jobs all the time we were
growing up. All six of us made a
success out of our lives. This,
however, we know was due to
our mother.
We are upset because dad left
us and lived with a lady who had
five children. It was obvious he
provided for them nicely – not
thinking of us at all. He returned
last year sick. In fact, he is bedridden. He suffered a stroke and is
paralyzed down the left side of
his body. Mom is asking for us to
come and help. Four of my siblings live out of state. My brother
and I are the only two who can
help.
Gwendolyn, why did my mother take him back? Why?
Gloria
Dear Gloria:
Only your mother can answer
that. True love is a strange thing.
It never dies. I do understand
your concerns. Why should you
and your brother be tied down
with a man who left you?
Let me tell you this: Your situation is not an isolated case.
Husbands leave wives, play
around when all body parts are
functioning. They walk without
arthritis. Their vision is 20/20.
Their hearing is good. They just
got to roam.
Gloria, you need to convince
your mother to call the other
woman and her children to help
with your dad. After all, she got
more of his money and affection
than your mother. Sounds not
good, but love is blind and in this
case it’s stupid. The responsibility
of your father’s healthcare needs
to be shifted. He may need to go
into a nursing home facility. Too
often the caregiver becomes ill
because the task is too great.
Tell your mother to think back
to all those nights she had to be
alone – rainy stormy nights when
a husband is joy. Think about it.
Wives need to stop allowing their
husbands to vanish and return
old, sick — and broke down.

Dallas ISD Names Mr. Mike Miles Lone Finalist for Superintendent
Continued from Page 1A
Dallas Independent School
District Board of Trustees named
Mr. Mike Miles as the lone finalist for the district's superintendent position. Trustees have
been conducting a nationwide
search for a new superintendent
that included receiving input
from several stakeholder groups.
Mr. Miles will be the second
African American [decent] Dallas
ISD Superintendent, following Dr.
Marvin Edwards twenty-five (25)
years ago.
Mr. Miles, 55, has served as
Superintendent for the Harrison
School District Two in Colorado
Springs since fall 2006. He is
known as an innovator and
reformer who is changing the
face of public education. His
ideas and innovations around
systems thinking, measuring
teacher and principal effectiveness and building an adaptive
organization have been recognized by national education institutes and have been adopted by
numerous districts around the
country. Under his leadership,
Harrison County District Two has
experienced increased graduation rates and improved student
achievement.
Mike Miles is a former Army
Ranger who graduated from
West Point in 1998. He then
entered the ranks of the officer
corps at Ft. Lewis, Washington,
where he served in the Army's
elite Ranger Battalion and commanded an Infantry Rifle
Company.
After the Army, Mr. Miles
studied Slavic languages and literature at the University of
California at Berkeley and the
University of Leningrad in Russia.
Mr. Miles then pursued advanced
study of Soviet affairs and public
policy at Columbia University and
earned a master's degree in
1989. The same year, he joined
the U. S. Department of State as
a policy analyst at the Soviet
desk, and ten from 1990 to 1995
as diplomat in Moscow and
Warsaw at the end of the Cold
War.
Mr. Miles and his family
returned home to Colorado
Springs in 1995 where he started
as a high school teacher in his
alma mater school district Fountain-Fort Carson School
District 8. Miles continued to
grow professionally and held
other positions such as middle
school principal, coordinator of
administration services and from
2003 to 2006 served as Assistant
Superintendent for Curriculum
and Instruction, in the same
school district.
Currently, Mr. Miles also
serves as an educational consultant and motivational speaker for
school districts and other public
organizations around the state of
Colorado. He is recognized as an
accomplished practitioner of curriculum alignment, organizational effectiveness, and systems
thinking.
Mr. Miles, whose father is
African American and mother is
Japanese; is married to Mrs.
Karen Miles, and together they
have three children.
At the press conference
announcing Mr. Miles as the lone
finalist, Mr. Roscoe Smith, education leader and member of the
Coalition for Accountable School
Education (CASE), gave his initial
observations about Mr. Miles.
One of his observations was the
"statements he made, made me
feel pretty good. First thing was
bridging the education gap we
(CASE) want. The next thing was
parent and community involvement and all that they do and
student involvement."
In addition, Mr. Smith says
"we will talk with him more
about early childhood education.
We think early childhood education is the key." Finally, CASE
"wants him to think about a rigorous school system that when
kids leave here, they can go to
any college that they may want
to attend."
Other community leaders will
wait to see how Mr. Miles performs. Community education
activist, Brenda Fields says, "a
Superintendent over 11,300 students is a lot different from being
a Superintendent with 155,000
students."
The Dallas ISD Board plans to
officially approve hiring Mr. Miles
on Thursday, April 26, 2012. If
approved, Mr. Miles is stated to
begin work Monday, July 2, 2012.

Never speak harsh words. Be

tongue. For it has been said
that the tongue can be like a
sword. Think long before you

tongue can kill!

The city of Irving hired Heritage District LLC, in 2006 to spearhead the long held
dream of revitalizing one of the oldest parts of town. . The City Council agreed to
take on to end its contract with them. The potential costs are in addition to more
than $1.2 million already paid to the company for consulting fees, office and housing cost and third-party expenses.
For 13 seasons, Shawn Marion has never been named to the NBA's All
Defensive first or second team. However, this might change this season!
St. Luke Community United Methodist Church has appointed a new senior pastor, the church announced on Sunday. The Rev. Henry Masters, senior pastor at
Holman United Methodist Church, one of the largest in the Los Angeles area, will
begin July 1. His wife, the Rev. S. Dianna Masters will serve as associate pastor for
congregational care at St. Luke, according to a church statement. Both are native
Texans. The church's former senior pastor, the Rev. Tyrone D. Gordon, resigned in
February in the midst of a misconduct scandal. The Rev. Zan Holmes has been serving as interim pastor.
Continued from Page 1A- George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Florida teen,
Trayvon Martin, says he was the victim the night of the murder. He said Trayvon
was beating him up, sitting on top of him. Also, that Trayvon broke his nose and he
[Zimmerman] was covered in Blood and Grass Stains. However, after viewing the
Police Stations surveillance, it is clear that Zimmerman had neither a bloody nose,
or grass stains.

Mr. Hilliard B. Sorrells, retired band

succumbs at age 81
Mr. Hilliard B. “H.B.”
Sorrells mentored his students during his more
than 25 years as an
award-winning
Texas
band director. He continued his legacy of helping
after he retired following
20 years of service to the
Dallas
Independent
School District.
Mr. Sorrells, 81, died
Friday of complications
including diabetes at
Vibra Specialty Hospital in
DeSoto.
A wake was held from 6
to 8 p.m. Wednesday,
April 4, 2012, in Laurel
Land Funeral Home’s
Memorial Chapel in
Dallas.
Services will be at 11
a.m. Thursday at St. Luke
Community
United
Methodist Church, where
he was an active member.
He will be buried in Laurel
Land Memorial Park.
“He was a person who
was an excellent role
model for children and for
families,” said his wife,
Rosie Collins Sorrells,
DISD’s retired director of
early-childhood education who served two
terms on the Texas State
Board of Education.
Mr. Sorrells mentored
many students as a
teacher and father, said
Charles Winslow, DISD’s
program manager for
basic skills.
“I went through a very
dark, dark period,” Mr.
Winslow said. “During
that dark period I also lost
my parents. He stepped in
and was like a father —
where you can talk man
to man. He didn’t sugarcoat anything, he was just
there. I would not have
made it through that difficult time in my life if it
was not for him.”
Mr. Sorrells was born
and raised in Austin, and
Mr. H.R. Sorrells
completed high school in
Vallejo, Calif. He played
trombone in the band
during his six years in the
Army.
After completing his
military
service,
he
returned to Austin, where
he received a bachelor’s
degree in music from
Huston-Tillotson College,
now
Huston-Tillotson
University.
He continued his music
studies at East Texas State
Teachers College, now
Texas A&M-Commerce,
where he earned a master’s degree in guidance
and counseling.
In 1958, Mr. Sorrells
started his career teaching general music at
Cleburne High School.
The next year, in 1959, he
became band director at
Rosenwald High School in
Luling, Texas, where he
also taught seventh-grade
language arts and social
studies.
Mr. Sorrells’ bands in
Luling won many awards
under his direction.
In 1965, he joined DISD
as band and orchestra
director at Sarah Zumwalt
Junior High. In 1976, he
became band director at
South Oak Cliff High
School Annex. In 1980, he
returned
to
Sarah
Zumwalt, where he was
band director when he
retired in 1985.
In retirement, he volunteered at libraries, taught
GED classes and was a
part-time stringed instrument instructor.
In addition to his wife,
Mr. Sorrells is survived by
a daughter, LaZette
Sorrells-Kellum
of
DeSoto; a brother, L.H.
Sorrells of Corona, Calif.; a
sister, Crysteline James of
Englewood, Calif.; and
one grandchild.
Memorials may be
made to the Sorrells
Family
Reunion
Scholarship Fund at
Prosperity Bank.

JWP: Well, the lady
that does it says the
biggest controversy is two
things. First of all, is it
my hair? You can go to
her website (Tootsie's
Braiding Gallery.com).
Number two, do I dye it.
And at 62, my position is
what she says, 'if he does
. . . he has to do it one
strand at a time and then
twist it back the way I did
it the week before'.
ED: We did a survey
and asked people randomly about JWP. And
the response was 'oh, you
mean John Wiley Price'.
No problem with the
acronym. No problem
with the high marks on
your report card. But one
thing is constant, what is
your response to being
the most powerful politician in Dallas County?
JWP: Power is relative.
. . and that can be both a
blessing and a burden. It
becomes a blessing when
you can pick up the phone
and assist people. On the
way here I talked to a guy
who had been dismissed
from a job of some 22
years . . . had an excellent
work record . . . had one
stumble and now seems
to have a blockade. . and
so my position is do I have
the power to go in and
intercede on his behalf.
My point is. . . if that
becomes power and you
can utilized it to help
somebody else - then that
is fine.
ED: There are endless
and marvelous stories
about you helping people
and your attention to
details. Sandra Clarke
(Sandra Clarke Funeral
Home) just mentioned to
me about a letter you
wrote to her about a service. She had it framed!!
Let's talk about your job.
What is your job responsi-
bility as county commissioner?
JWP: Well, the state
law says that each county,
254 counties, is divided
into four quadrants. . .
and those individuals
shall sit collective with
the county judge. . . the 5
of them, regardless of the
size of the county and
they shall in fact set the
tax rate for the county.
Dallas County is 900
square miles and has 26
cities. We shall in fact set
the tax rate and the budget.
ED: Explain the hospital involvement as a commissioner.
JWP: Now, of the 254
counties - there are a 110
of them that have a hospital district; and therefore,
the commissioners court
shall set the tax rate for
the hospital district. . and
approve the budget that
is set by its board of managers. The way you get
the board of managers for
the hospital district is that
each commissioner and
the county judge appoints
one. . . and then jointly
we appoint two. The
seven of them make up
the hospital district board
of managers . . . and they
shall construct a budget . .
. set forth to the commissioners court and then we
approve their budget.
We approve their budget.
We approve their tax rate.
And we approve all real
estate
acquisitions.
That's it! Everything else.
. . that's one of the reason that the Warriors and
I went out and picketed
Parkland (Hospital) a
while back. . . even
though I had problems
with patient care. . . I had
problems with . . .
ED: That's because you
are getting calls; and I
really have to get to the
number of calls. . . people
are giving you this infor-
mation. Your staff is outstanding. . . but how
many calls do you get a
day?
JWP: I probably get
more (phone calls) than
all of my colleagues combined. I get hundreds. . . I
get hundreds of emails. . .
and my number is listed.
If somebody tells me
something and say’s they
need to meet me at 4AM
in the morning. . . I don't
care if you are a plumber
in Facilities or a case
worker at one of our
detention facilities, I am
going to appear because
once you receive that
kind of entail and you follow through. . . then you
will subsequently get
other entail. . . that helps
you to manage the dayto-day operations of
what's going on.
Dallas County has some
6,000 employees. . . look
at that operation with
almost half of a $500 million budget. The problem
is you have 88 elected
officials and so the only
authority that the commissioners court has over
those elective officials is
budget and then some try
to collaborate. There are
15 standing committees
and I chair 8 and co-chair
2.
The work is done in
committees and I tell
everybody . . . you know
that staging that you do
on
Tuesdays
(Commissioner's Court,
every Tuesday, opened to
the public) for an hour or
so. . . doesn't mean anything.. . the work is done
in committees.

DALLAS MAYOR MIKE RAWLINGS MEETS WITH A DALLAS POST
TRIBUNE REPRESENTATIVE TO DISCUSS HIS PLANS
FOR THE SOUTHERN SECTOR
Continued from Page 1A
After presenting his plan
last month to 'Grow South,'
the Mayor states "now we
have to start implementing
and creating plans for each
initiative." He states, 'he is
meeting weekly on each
project." Mayor Rawlings
and his staff are working on
the strategy and action
steps to reach out to the
community.
He will start with the
known 130 neighborhood
associations. He wants to
get together with the leaders of the neighborhood
associations in approximately six weeks "to bring
everyone together to discuss what they can do to
improve their neighborhood." In addition, the
Mayor wants for the first
time to map out neighborhood associations. By mapping out the neighborhood
associations, we will see
their boundaries as well as
see where there are opportunities to create a neighborhood
association.
Mayor Rawlings says, "he
wants to create thirty (30)
new neighborhood associations by the end of the
year." He believes that having strong neighborhood
associations is paramount
in the process of growing
the Southern sector and
succeeding in the implementation of the other initiatives.
For example, the initiative 'Creating a Culture of
Clean' will require working
with neighborhood associations to show as the Mayor
says "The City is serious"
about cleaning up the local
environment. Part of this
initiative is to knock down
and clean up areas with
abandoned and dilapidated
houses. The city will follow
the due process of law to
remove these houses. Also,
he asks neighborhoods to
take care and have pride in
their local community.
Mayor Rawlings also
states he wants to adopt
four (4) schools.
The
schools
are
Zumwalt
Middle School, Atwell
Middle School, Lincoln High
School, and Adamson High
School. By adopting these
schools, Mayor Rawlings
says he wants "to work
with, mentor, and coach the
principals." He states he
will be an "advocate and
friend." He said forcibly, "I
want to understand what
they need to get things
done."
The Mayor also wants to
work with parents and
engage parents in their
schools. He stated "he will
call meetings, talk about
what is necessary, and what
we expect out of parents."
In addition, the Mayor said
he is willing to find
resources for what the
school needs.
Council
Member Dwayne Caraway
is also going to help in this
effort.
The Mayor's actions are
stepping forward and have
not been done by previous
Mayors of Dallas. Mayor
Rawlings said he wants to
"be consistent and be synergistic with the DISD. He is
not trying to create a new
program. The DISD doesn't
have enough arms and legs
to do all the things they
have to do."
Mayor
Rawlings states "this is a
team sport" and "that's
what the voters want from
me."
Part of growing the
Southern sector is also
debunking the myths about
southern Dallas. The Mayor
wants to change the image
and
perception
that
"Southern Dallas is not a
charity case, it is an investment opportunity."
To
begin this process, he will
seek the support of the
local advertising industry to
provide a dedicated brand
manager and pro bono
advertising/public relations.
The Mayor believes he can
convince members of the
advertising business that
this project is "not a waste
of anybody's time or good
reputation."
He says,
"hopefully, if I come up with
a good enough idea, you
will see the wisdom of it."
Their investment in pro
bono time will eventually
yield bigger profits.
Lastly, the Mayor wants
to create a financial and
investment
fund
for
Southern Dallas. He states
the organization managing
the funds will be a private
organization with board
oversight, have professional
money managers, and an
investment committee. The
goal of the investment
funds is to yield above market rate returns. Mayor
Rawlings states "we will
take politics out…this
organization is for profit
and private with the mandate to invest in Southern
Dallas."
He
will
approach
investors who "know Dallas,
love Dallas," and seek an
initial
investment
of
$500,000.00. The goal for
the initial capitalization is
$20 million. The Mayor
wants to launch the investment organization next
spring.
Finally the Mayor states,
"Dallas believes Southern
Dallas can be successful.
But it is going to take everybody, all citizens of Dallas
and it is going to take neighbors. Each person has got
to step up and do their part.
The minute you say someone else is going to take
care of this, it starts to fall
apart. The word is accountability. We want people to
step up and that's what I
am trying to do as Mayor
and that's what I want each
neighborhood to do."
