DESOTO ISD SCHOOL BOARD VOTED TO SEVER TIES WITH ITS NEW SUPERINTENDENT KATHY AUGUSTINE

FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN FEDERAL JUDGE THE HONORABLE MATTHEW J. PERRY, JR. SUCCUMBS

Dallas Fire Chief Eddie Burns Retires

Superintendent Kathy Augustine (AP) - Desoto ISD school board voted Monday to sever ties with its new superintendent, who was caught in the fallout of a test-cheating scandal in her previous district in Atlanta. The DeSoto school board voted 3-2 to negotiate the terms of a voluntary exit agreement with Superintendent Kathy Augustine. Two board members were absent. The board had the same discussion on the agenda last month but adjourned without settling the future of the former deputy Atlanta school superintendent. The district of about 9,000 students in the suburb south of Dallas hired Augustine in April for $188,000 a year. However, the board placed her on paid leave last month while it re-examined her Atlanta tenure. She has denied having knowledge of test cheating in Atlanta. School board member Sandra Wheeler said the vote was about leadership, ethics and integrity. "At this time, I don't feel the leadership ability is there," Wheeler said. DeSoto school district spokeswoman Beth Trimble said Augustine will remain on leave until terms of the settlement are reached by both parties. The board announced its decision after meeting in executive session for about 90 minutes. Board member Aubrey Hooper said that while it was "problematic" that it would cost the district money to end the contract, "we have to make the decision that's in the best interest of our kids." Board president Warren Seay Jr. said that while it has been a "difficult time" for the district, the focus should now be on student success. "When the media's gone and all the distractions are gone, DeSoto will be successful," he said.

(AP) - Matthew J. Perry Jr., a civil rights lawyer who went from sitting in the courtroom balcony waiting for his cases to be heard because he was black to having the federal courthouse in Columbia named in his honor, has died. He was 89. Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said Perry died on Friday and was discovered on Sunday. He first made his name in South Carolina with civil rights cases. That included successfully representing Harvey Gant, who became the first black student to attend classes at Clemson University. In 1975, Perry became the first black judge in the state named to the federal bench at the U.S. Court of Military Appeals. Four years later, he became a U.S. District judge. Throughout it all, friends said Perry kept the same warm spirit that endeared him to many and defused his critics. Both his friends and his adversaries say it was that kindness that helped South Carolina integrate with less violence than nearly every other Southern state. "He is the only militant civil rights figure I know of who seems to be loved and respected by both racial groups while still engaged in the struggle," wrote Robert Carter, a U.S. District Judge in New York in the book "Matthew J. Perry: The Man, His Times, And His Legacy."

Dallas Fire Chief Eddie Burns

After more than five years as the leader of Dallas Fire-Rescue, and 32 years in fire service, Chief Eddie Burns has decided to retire and leave the City to pursue business opportunities. His resignation will take effect on September 1, 2011. He anticipates being available for transition issues, but has requested vacation time during the interim. Chief Burns has instituted many positive enhancements to the organization during his tenure including providing more training for employees and developing a new EMS model that pairs a paramedic with every engine company which increased the level of patient care, increased the survival rate of CPR victims and improved service delivery and the City's relationship with the medical community at large. He also implemented a three-year equipment replacement program and found a way to upgrade and replace deteriorating fire stations as well as improved technology. Chief Burns also started a wellness program to improve the health of firefighters which has reduced healthcare cost and saved lives. That efforts was recognized at the 2009 International Association of Fire Chiefs Conference and awarded the "Fire Service Award for Excellence." Continues on Page 4B Continua en la Pagina 4B

The U.S. Credit Rating Has Dropped to AA How will it affect you?

(AP)-Lots of people are wondering what this means for the real economy and the stock market. Here's a quick primer based on ABC News' extensive reporting on the possibility of a downgrade -- five easy to understand effects: 1. The interest rates the government pays to finance the growing national debt will almost certainly rise as a result of the downgrade. That increases the amount of money Uncle Sam has to spend each year on "debt service." General market discussions have turned on an increase in rates that would up the annual tally by about $10 in the short-term and go up to $75 billion in additional costs in the coming years. 2. The interest rates YOU and YOUR EMPLOYER pay will go up. Basic credit facilities -- like mortgages, student loans and credit cards -- are all at least loosely tied to the rates the government pays. A half a percent increase in mortgage rates could increase the total cost of the average traditional mortgage by $19K (on a $172K home). Businesses would have to spend more money to finance expansions. Costs for borrowed money goes up, effectively raising the price of anything you're not paying for with cash.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Dear Editor:

The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association supports the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act (HR 1449) and strongly urges Congress to pass this important piece of legislation on behalf of its over 20,000 members and the motoring public. As a national trade association representing independent automobile dealers, we believe that all vehicle service and repair information should be made available to consumers and all facilities that sell vehicles or pursue repair opportunities, and should not be restricted to just those who are affiliated with a manufacturer. Consumers benefit from competition and are at a disadvantage when local auto repair facilities are denied ready access to non-proprietary service information and tools needed to properly maintain today's highly sophisticated motor vehicles. The Right to Repair Act ensures that car companies provide full access at a reasonable cost to all service information, tools, computer codes and safety-related bulletins needed to repair motor vehicles so that our members' customers and all motorists can have their vehicles serviced at the repair shop of their choice. We encourage you to join us and visit www.righttorepair.org to send a letter to each of your congressional representatives, urging them to support the Right to Repair Act. Sincerely, Michael R. Linn CEO National Independent Automobile Dealers Association

A Little Bit of Faith: You Can Find Rest

"But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance" (Romans 8:25). This is what we need to do. We need to eagerly wait as we press forward knowing that our time is on its way. Waiting is not an easy thing to do. When we wait for anything, our mind tends to want to take over and lead us astray. But we have to control our mind. We cannot allow our mind to control us. If the wrong thoughts are beginning to enter our thoughts, we should push out the negative thoughts and replace them with more positive thoughts. This is actually called cognitive restructuring. I know how the weight of the world can make you feel like there is no rest for the weary. But in Matthew it says, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). There is peaceful rest for all of us if we trust in Christ. He can give us peace of mind when the entire world is falling down around us. And with the way things are going in this country today, I'm sure for many people they feel as if there is no place or no one they can turn to. But there is still someone who sticks closer to us than a mother or a brother. That person is Jesus the Christ! So if you feel like there is no hope for tomorrow or that the world is resting too heavily on your shoulders, turn your burdens over to the Lord. He wants to carry them for you. Are you willing to find rest in Christ? Can you begin to let go and let God? I know I can. Amen? Amen.

By Colleen White Keep the faith! Even though it may seem as if our world is falling apart, if you have your faith to lean on, it can give you some perspective. You must have faith when things are going well and when they are not. In the book of Romans it says,

"A SURVEY OF THE BOOK OF ROMANS" ROMANS 7:13-25 SANCTIFICATION WITH REFERENCE TO THE BELIEVER, PART III

Rev. John Calvin Smith

As we continue our study in this grand letter of Romans, Paul has endeavored to convey to these Roman believers that they have died both to sin and the law through identification with Christ in His death and resurrection (Romans 6:4; 7:4). Knowing this as a fact, the believers are exhorted to live in the newness of the Holy Spirit (Romans 7:6). However, the believers must understand that the Law was never intended to produce the strength needed to procure life; rather, the Law only served to condemn the believers, really revealing the utter sinfulness of the human nature (Romans 7:8-11). In this sanctification section of Romans (7:13-25), the grand Apostle Paul really reveals the

intense struggle between sin and himself. What an intense struggle that Paul is engaged in; and this picture of Paul's struggle in his spiritual life is the same struggle that we are engaged in! As stated in the previous verses, Paul discovered that the Law was "holy and just and good" (v. 12), but the real problem was the principle of sin operating from within him! Again, defining the Law, Paul rejected any idea that death originated in God's Law; rather, death came as a result of sin which worked through the Law in a crafty way (v. 13). A key to understanding this section (Romans 7:13-25) is to know that in verses 7-13, Paul is referring to his pre-salvation state. Sin was working death in him through the Law. The more Paul tried to keep the Law, the more prominently sin's grip came into view! Trying to over-

come sin by self-efforts, Paul only experienced defeat and futility for Paul uttered that he was enslaved to sin, "sold under sin" (v. 14). Being "carnal and sold under sin," Paul expresses disapproval of his actions in verse 15. He actually hated what he did. Although Paul described himself as being under sin's dominion, he recognized the goodness of the Law that condemned his actions (v. 16). In verses 17-18, Paul expresses his frustration in attempting to live the Christian life through self-efforts. While he desired to do good, he found it impossible in himself to perform the good. We cannot as Christians overcome the flesh or sinful nature by trying to keep the requirements of the Law. Our sinful natures cannot be overcome by keeping the Law, nor through any self-efforts of ours!

The Christian life is about our allowing the Lord to live His life through us! We must yield to His power! Continuing to manifest that he was living a frustrated and defeated life, Paul concluded that indwelling sin was the root of his spiritual defeated life (Romans 7:19-24). Paul took full responsibility for his sin, but the root problem in his spiritual life was the indwelling principle of sin! Paul recognized that his sin came from his sin nature (flesh) which dwelt within him. In verse 24, Paul had exclaimed a question, looking for a solution to his defeated and frustrated spiritual life. The question, 'Who shall deliver me?" in verse 24, was answered in verse 25. Paul answers that question by stating that "deliverance from sin comes only through Jesus Christ." May God Bless!

Living Large: Doctors Tackle Obesity in Black Women

By Chris Levister Special to the NNPA from Blackvoicenews.com Obesity is a nationwide epidemic across the racial spectrum and it's a big problem for African-American women, more than half of whom are considered overweight. The prevalence, causes, and consequences surrounding obesity were the focus of intense discussion, debate and concern during the National Medical Association (NMA) 2011 Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly. The prevalence is clear, 77 percent of African American women are overweight. Fifty percent of Black women are obese. Several Inland Empire doctors were among the more than 5,000 physicians and students who recently converged on Washington D.C. for the 2011 National Medical Association Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly. Marilyn Hughes Gaston, M.D. and Gayle K. Porter, PsyD, founders of the Gaston & Porter Health Improvement Center in Potomac, Maryland told a standing room only audience, the root causes, misconceptions, paradoxes and consequences are as clear as mud. Recently 351 Black women 40-75 years of age signed up for a 12-week intervention called Prime Time Sister Circles. Less than 10 percent of the women in the program reported being of normal weight by prevailing standards ­ the rest were overweight, obese or extremely obese. More than half of participants reported health concerns such as diabetes and heart disease. Nearly 70 percent reported high blood pressure. Gaston said the survey "exploded with misconceptions" about the root causes of obesity in the Black community. "This is not a diagnosis of poor people with poor

eating habits," she explained. The survey found a tsunami of contributing factors including depression, yoyo dieting, cravings, poor self-esteem, sexual abuse, emotional eating and a perception, reinforced by celebrities such as Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique that African American women are satisfied with their weights. The survey also found that only 10 percent of obese women expressed satisfaction with their weight which might play a role in the high rates of depression, stress and morbidity seen in Black women. Denia Tapscott, M.D., program director of the Center for Wellness and Weight Loss Surgery at Howard University in Washington D.C., told the audience sexual abuse in young Black women is an important factor contributing to the obesity epidemic. Research shows about 1 in 4 young women have experienced physical or verbal abuse in dating situations with Black and other minority women showing the highest risk. "If you look at recurring patterns in teenagers, many girls have been sexually or physically abused and have never talked about it. Instead they eat," explained Janet Taylor, M.D. , a psychiatrist at Harlem Hospital in New York City. "Internalized racism, "weathering" is postulated to be responsible for increased psychosocial stress and blood pressure in Blacks said," said Richard Kotomori M.D., a Riverside, California, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist. He explained measures of chronic stress (eg, anger, hostility, depression, and anxiety) are also associated with increased hypertension, high levels of diabetes, elevated cholesterol, low infant birth weight and weight gain.

Other physicians lamented the perception that many Black women are overweight because brothers like it that way. "That is to say that the culture rewards women for a little extra padding," said a member of the audience. I think there's probably some class issues there, said a physician from Atlanta. "As kids many of us were told that brothers prefer women who have junk in the trunk ­ put plainly ­ big butts." Others pointed to media influenced perceptions e.g., "Norbit," the 2007 romantic comedy film starring Eddie Murphy and Thandie Newton where obese Black women are held up as objects of ridicule. Members of the panel agreed movies aimed at Black audiences, music videos and a slew of new urban magazines that feature women with humongous rear ends are finding increasing success particularly with Black males. Add to the obesity mix: poor nutrition reinforced by a lack of healthy choices in underserved communities, said Dr. Tapscott. "It's not unusual to walk into Black and brown communities and find that there is not one single healthy restaurant. There's only one sit-down restaurant. Everything else is fast food." "How many times have we gone to grandmother's house and sat at a table full of fried chicken, Mac and cheese and greens smothered in fatback," added Porter. "We are led to believe as Black folks that somehow that food is good for us because that's the food that we were raised on." The panel noted in this era, led by "bootstrap mentality" in which Black women are collectively carving a place in the society that enslaved them exercise over constant work is not an option. "Bally Fitness' and 24-Hour Fitness'

aren't in our communities. Then there's the other issue of Black women unwilling to take the time to exercise and sweat for fear of messing up their hair," said a physician in the audience. "As Black women in particular, we take care of everybody and nobody takes care of us and we don't take care of ourselves," said Dr. Taylor. "The numbers speak for themselves in terms of diabetes and hypertension and how much sooner we die than other people. When we get those conditions, we get them much more severely." Gaston explained some physicians are reluctant to address obesity in the Black community because they don't want to offend Black women. "We have to come face to face with the facts on how we ourselves play a role in this epidemic as well." "We're on dangerous territory here, but we've got to take the veil off this issue," said Porter. She said African American doctors are in a pivotal position to lead the charge with individual education, healthcare education and community education. "Obesity is a significant health threat. Obesity should be viewed as a chronic condition. Effective treatment requires a multidisciplinary approach. We have to help people change the way they think!" "Most doctors ask patients, are you having unprotect sex," said Porter. "It's now time to ask what's on your plate ­ literally and figuratively." The NMA represents more than 30,000 African-American physicians. Founded in 1895 it is the largest organization representing African-American physicians and the patients they service.

3. Needless to say, increasing costs for consumers and businesses tends to slow their economic activity. Some estimates put a downgrade like this as likely to shave 1 percent off GDP. This slowing certainly increases the risks that the U.S. will have a second dip into recession. It also means

less tax revenue, so the potential for additional debt increases. 4. As the economy slows, expect the stock market to react. After all, investors buy shares to get a piece of growing profits. A slowing economy means profits grow less rapidly or go down. The relative value of a share of anything will go down. Some experts predict a downgrade

could force stocks to sell-off by 6 percent to 10 percent in short order. That's another 1,100 points on the Dow. 5. A slowdown in economic activity also means less demand for workers. The non-partisan group Third Way has published estimates that a simple 0.5 percent increase in interest rates could erase more than 640,000 jobs.

Buy-Back Programs: Profitable or Compromising? by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott

With technology constantly improving, newer, faster products are always on the horizon. As a result, some retailers recently started offering buyback programs, which allow customers to replace their old electronics with newer devices. To protect their pocketbooks, Texas customers should pay close attention to a buy-back program's details and requirements. Whether a particular program is a good deal may depend upon each individual customer's particular circumstances. The devil is in the details. Most buy-back programs basically act as insurance against a gadget's loss of value, but a product's actual or true value can be difficult to define. Like any product intended to create revenue for the seller, buy-back programs are a profit source for retailers - so the terms typically favor the retailer. Buy-back programs ordinarily add a small fee to the product's original purchase price, but not all programs work the same way. As long as the original product remains in good condition, most buyback programs will allow customers to trade in their old device for a newer model at a percentage of its current value. These programs typically involve laptops, tablet PCs and televisions. In many cases, buy-back programs require that customers return their old devices in exchange for a gift card. As a result, a customer is obligated to buy their next purchase from the same retailer they used the first time. Buy-back programs also usually have stipulations that require customers to include all power cords, original receipts and manuals when they exchange their old products for new ones. Anyone who participates in a buy-back program should maintain all relevant documentation and equipment to avoid any potential problems. And before locking into a buy-back program, mobile phone customers should confirm that their mobile service providers allow users to upgrade their mobile phones. Otherwise, customers could end up paying unnecessary fees and penalties. Most importantly, customers should always erase all personal information from their devices before the device is returned. Laptops and various other electronics can hold a significant amount of personal information, so Texans should clear all devices' memory and remove personal information to ensure they protect their identities. Customers who use buy-back programs to purchase mobile phones should keep their old phone's SIM card. Texas customers seeking more information about a retailer's buy-back program should visit the Better Business Bureau online at www.bbb.org. Points to Remember Buy-Back Programs o Always review the buyback program's terms and conditions. o Keep original packaging and documentation. o Before exchanging old technology devices, remove all personal information. o Ask whether the buy-back program covers mobile phone contracts. o Visit the Better Business Bureau online at www.bbb.org Texans who believe they encountered misleading or deceptive advertising about a buy-back program should file a complaint with the Texas Attorney General's Office by calling (800) 252-8011 or visiting the agency online at www.texasattorneygeneral.go v.

BE KIND!

Never speak harsh words. Be kind and gentle with your tongue. For it has been said that the tongue can be like a sword. Think long before you criticize your neighbor. Your tongue can be nasty. Living is one of the most beautiful things in the world. But the tongue can kill!

Perry was born in Columbia on Aug. 3, 1921. He was raised by his mother and grandfather after his tailor father died when he was 12. After high school, Perry enrolled at South Carolina State University. But World War II interrupted his schooling and led him to dedicate his life to civil rights. While on leave, Perry stopped at a restaurant in Alabama. He had to order his sandwich from a window outside the kitchen while Italian prisoners-of-war were served inside. "You have no idea the feeling of insult I experienced. As I say, that one reverberates," Perry had said about it. After the war, Perry enrolled at South Carolina State's new law school and became its first graduate to pass the Bar. At the urging of his colleagues, Perry moved to Spartanburg to practice law because the area had no black attorneys. He quickly became known for his thorough preparation and willingness to take any case. But judges and other lawyers never let him forget he was a black man in the South in the 1950s. Perry sometimes had to sit in the balcony with other blacks until his case was called. If he couldn't stay at the home of his client, he had to drive back home no matter how far because most motels wouldn't allow black guests. Perry kept fighting. His civil rights wins were renowned. Along with integrating Clemson, colleagues estimate he got convictions reversed for hundreds if not thousands of people arrested for civil disobedience during the fight to end segregation. Some of them could only pay with baskets of homegrown produce or homemade cakes and pies, offered after Perry had already waived his fee. "Matthew personified the black lawyer of the 1950s and 1960s - courageous, articulate and persuasive," said former state Chief Justice Ernest Finney, who graduated from South Carolina State's law school three years after Perry. In one of his last cases as an attorney, Perry opened the door of the Statehouse to blacks, forcing South Carolina to adopt single member House districts. In the next election, nearly a dozen black lawmakers were sent to Columbia. He retired from full-time work in 1995, but kept hearing cases. In 2004, the new federal courthouse in Columbia was named in his honor, his name etched high above the columns of the $40 million building. A statue of Perry sits in the courtyard. His only complaint about the building was his office didn't have enough shelves for his massive personal law library. The star of South Carolina's civil rights movement occasionally wondered if he could have been a show business sensation. But those who know Perry say he was put here to be an attorney and a judge. "He just loves the law," fellow U.S. District Court Cameron Currie said in 2004. "This is his life. This is his hobby, and it's his love."

OBAMA HONORS US FORCES KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN

(AP) -- Assuming the grimmest role of his job, President Barack Obama on Tuesday, August 9, 2011, prepared to privately honor the remains of the fallen returning home from war, this time the troops killed in a helicopter attack that claimed more American lives than any other incident of the Afghanistan war. Obama arrived at Dover Air Force Base to preside as the remains of U.S. forces were carried off a military cargo plane in flag-covered cases. His unscheduled afternoon trip here was kept secret to ensure the security of his helicopter flight to Delaware. Members of the media covering the trip agreed in advance not to report on it until he had landed. After about a half-hour flight President Barack Obama salutes as he steps off of Marine One at Dover Air Force Base, Del., from Washington, Marine One Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2011. The President will meet privately with families of thirty Americans touched down at the base. killed in an International Security Assistance Force helicopter crash in eastern Afghanistan while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) Obama was greeted by Col. Mark Camerer, commander of the 436th Airlift Wing, before climbing into a waiting limousine. The president's first stop was a private meeting with the families of the fallen. An entrenched wartime president, Obama has been here before. In the dark of an October morning in 2009, Obama watched solemnly as 18 Americans killed in the Afghan war came home, a visceral reminder of a war that has long slipped from the forefront of American debate. He would later call it the most powerful moment of his young presidency. Obama is now honoring the U.S. forces killed in Afghanistan Saturday when their helicopter was shot down by a Taliban insurgent using a rocket-propelled grenade. A total of 30 U.S. troops, seven Afghan commandos and an Afghan interpreter died. They had been packed into a twin-rotor chopper, en route to help coalition ground forces in a battle with insurgents. Many of the Americans who died were members of the Navy's SEAL Team Six, the elite unit that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in a raid in Pakistan three months ago. None of the SEALs killed in the crash took part in the bin Laden mission. The devastating loss comes just ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on America that prompted the war in Afghanistan. Some of those killed had been motivated to join the Special Forces by the 9/11 attacks that bin Laden masterminded. Two C-17 aircraft carrying the remains of 30 killed in a weekend helicopter crash arrived at the air base east of Washington. Three days after the downing of the aircraft by insurgents, the Defense Department has not released the troops' names. Officials said it is taking time because there were so many killed. Others said privately there is hesitancy to release the names because the majority were from secretive special operations forces. But the stories of the fallen have been emerging in the days since the crash. Those killed included young fathers, accomplished athletes and people of deep faith. One had dreams of becoming an astronaut after military service. All were deeply committed to the cause. To Americans focused on economic crises at home, the death toll is a reminder that tens of thousands of U.S. forces will be in harm's way in Afghanistan through at least 2014.

The Justice for John Wiley Price Committee will hold an informational meeting for persons interested in volunteering. A special presentation will be given by Harley Schlanger an historian who has chronicled the continuing illegal actions of the FBI and other government agencies in the targeting of African-American elected officials. This FBI policy was named "Operation Fruhmenschen" by director J. Edgar Hoover and continues to this day. Mr. Schlanger has worked with others, including former California Congressman Mervyn Dymally, to expose, and defeat, the continuation of this heinous policy of the FBI. On July 17th over 200 persons who attended the Community Rally for Justice signed up to assist the Committee for JWP as we work for JUSTICE. This initial meeting will be held at the Friendship West Baptist Church at 2020 W. Wheatland Road in Dallas. All persons interested in volunteering in any capacity are encouraged to attend.

UNT named a top institution for African American student graduation by national magazine

The University of North Texas, the largest and most comprehensive university in the North Texas region, has been named among the top colleges that awarded the most bachelor's degrees to African Americans in the 2009-10 academic year, by Diverse Issues in Higher Education magazine. Diverse, which has kept track of the number of bachelor's degrees awarded to students of color for the past 20 years, recently released a list of the nation's 100 colleges that conferred the most bachelor's degrees to African Americans in the 2009-10 academic year. These are the most recent statistics available. UNT is ranked among the top 20 colleges and universities on the list, and the top university in Texas for graduating the most African American college students. Other Texas universities on the list include Texas Southern University, Texas Woman's University and the University of Houston. Nationwide statistics suggest that minority representation among bachelor's degree recipients has increased over the past several years, a trend which is evident at UNT had a 6 percent increase in the number of bachelor's degrees conferred to African Americans from 2008 to 2010.

Tiger Woods finishes his first tournament in four months

(AP) - Tiger Woods finished his first tournament in four months and got some predictable results. At times, he looked good. Far more often, he looked ordinary. And with no cut in the B r i d g e s t o n e Invitational, he got in four rounds going into the final major of the year. Woods lost momentum of a good start by losing his swing in the middle of the round, then pieced it together at the end for an even-par 70 Sunday that left him in the middle of the pack on a Firestone course where he is a seventime winner.

Dallas Fire Chief Eddie Burns Retires

Continued from Page 1A Continuacion de la Pagina 1A

In good management fashion, Chief Burns provided members of his team the opportunity to gain experiences through a 5 year Master Training Plan to assist in succession planning to prepare incumbent members for future leadership positions. The initiative has positioned Dallas Fire-Rescue with qualified candidates to succeed him. In the interim, Assistant Chief Louie Bright, III will head the department until a permanent replacement is hired. Assistant Chief Bright has served the City for many years in a number of roles including commanding Dallas Fire-Rescue's Training and Support Services Bureau which includes responsibility for Recruit Training, In-Service Training, Fleet Maintenance, Clothing and Supply, Fire Station Maintenance and Support, Safety and Wellness, and Construction of Facilities. Although Assistant Chief Bright is capable and ready to lead, he is not interested in the job permanently. The City will launch a search for a new fire chief in the coming weeks.
