ITS THURSDAY—A NEW DAY
TIME TO GET TOWNED!
Prayers still goes out to Haiti, Chile, China and the West Virginia miners.
This week commemorates two special occasions one national and one ILLMO-al.Today, is the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day! Keep our Earth clean and safe.This week also commemorates the 100 year b-day of Missouri based writer and humorist Mark Twain
As we continue celebrating poets in the ILLIMO area during National Poetry Month, this week we celebrate the life of Chi-town poet and writer, Carolyn M. Rodgers.
Rodgers, who helped found one of the country's oldest and largest black-owned book publishers, died earlier this month. She was 69.
The Chicago native wrote nine books, including "How I got Ovah." Her work often delved into the experiences of black women and using expletives in her works.
Rodgers is credited with being a star of the black arts movement of the 1960s and 1970s. She helped found Third World Press in the 1960s. She also started her own publishing company, Eden Press.
A public memorial is planned May 4 where Rodgers' work will be read.
This big ILLIMO newz story has still been about talk show mogul Oprah Winfrey. This go round is her supposed real father
In response to the recent release of the unauthorized and unofficial biography by writer Kitty Kelly, it seems that everyone wants a piece of Oprah .
Due to allegations in the book that Vernon Winfrey is not the talk show queen’s real father, there have been men from all walks of life making claims that they are, in fact, her father. Recently, Norh Robinson, an 84-year-old navy veteran, has come forward to claim paternity of Winfrey. He has gone so far as to say that he is willing to provide a paternity test to prove that he is her father. He says that he wants nothing of her money; he just wants to meet her before he dies.
Robinson said of trying to get in touch with Winfrey, “I told her, if she wanted, I’d give her (a paternity test). I never got no answer. I never did get no answer. If I did, it didn’t get to me.”
When reporters confronted Winfrey about the possibility of a paternity test she shouted, “I will not be taking a paternity test, ever!” She then, allegedly, pushed the reporter aside in order to get into her SUV.
According to sources, Winfrey considers Vernon her real father so she feels no need to confirm paternity with any other man.
And the Queen has spoken!
Actress and adopted ILLMOian Niecy Nash is still on Dancing with Stars. She survived week four this week.
The St. Louis Rams had first draft pick today in the NFLDraft and they picked (and no surprise) OklahamaQB SamBradford. Earlier this week, the organization administered their fall Schedule and they will play three of their first four games at home, including their season opener against the Arizona Cardinals at 3:15 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Edward Jones Dome.
It marks the first time the Rams have opened at home since 2007.

Chicago native and award winning singer/actress Jennifer Hudson recently recorded a duet with pop singer Leona Lewis for the 'Sex and The City' sequel, according to reports. The song is apparently going to be the theme tune for the new movie.
A source said: "The pair have recorded the song and it's been discussed as either the main theme or to feature on the soundtrack.
Hudson, who recently revealed her new look after following Weight Watchers, starred alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and girls as Louise from St. Louis in the first film in 2008.
In the STL, things didn’t seem too easy for the award winning singer when she headlined St. Louis native award winning sports journalist Bob Costas’ annual benefit for Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital at the Fox Theatre last Saturday(comedian Jimmy Fallon also on the bill fared better reportedly) .
According to Kevin Johnson of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, “ Her task was to engage a seemingly unmovable, low-key crowd who didn't know who she was or didn't care. She said (from the stage )the crowd seemed as if was sleep, and she would come into the crowd and wake it up. Hudson, a trouper throughout, tried, and eventually found some support after latching onto some true fans from her predominately African-American fan base, who were few and far between this night.”
Award winning actress Glenn Close was in St. Louis last Friday as part of BringChange2Mind’s “Change A Mind, Change A Life,” gala at the Four Seasons Hotel. The non-profit foundation is based in the Metro East and is dedicated to providing support to families and friends of people suffering with mental illness and to those who have lost friends or family to suicide. Close got involved with trying to erase the stigma associated with mental illness after her sister, Jessie, was diagnosed with the disease. Close, in partnership with major mental health organizations throughout the country, launched the organization, which addresses the stigma and provides a web portal for resources to support people and families facing mental illness.
Close took photos and greeted with the crowd after the event. Then on last Saturday, Close threw out the first pitch to kick off the Cardinals game against the Mets.
We wonder if anyone tempted to ask her to say her famous movie line, "I won't be ignored,Dan."LOL
R&B legend and STL resident Ron “Mr Biggs” Isley is one of many acts who will perform on the Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage Cruise May 16-23.
The big A&E newz story in the STL area was the filming of the St. Lunatics’ new video, “Money Talk” off their latest CD, “City Free.” The video,which is the first official video from the CD, was shot Monday at Visual Tracks Studios in Fenton. All of the Tics were there as well as featured artist Birdman of the cash Money Millionaires. Other guest appearances include STL rapper Chingy, Jus Black , and dee-jay Sir Thurl. (SEE OUT 819 FOR PICS )
Speaking of Nelly, he confronted Kat Stacks on some radio show about him smashing some girl named Haylee in front of her. Well from what he heard, he made her look foolish in her allegations.
In other St. Lunatics newz, group members Kyjuan and Murphy Lee travelled to Nashville last weekend to participate in their organization UCME’s 1st Softball Game Tourney (don’t know who they played against or the results).Before week’s start, they dropped off the new Tics single, “Money Talk” to Hot 104.1.

Gospel artist Smokie Norful played the diva role when he headlined for the Power To End Stroke Gospel Celebration at the Power of Change Church. Well according to Delores Shante’s column Partyline, Norful wasn’t in a joyous mood. According to Shante, “ Smokie was all funny actin’ and didn’t want to sign autographs or meet and greet with the people and a bunch of blah, blah, blah that ended on an NAACP Image Award for Best Drama Performance by a male lead blactor.” Reportedly,he was late and wanted to get on stage not caring of the supporting acts who were scheduled to open the show. But what the crowd got was a very short (like himself. LOL) performance.

Speaking of comics,as we reported late last week, comic Darius Bradford had to go to jail last weekend due to baby mamma drama involving lack of child support payments. His folks were trying to raise money for his bail so that he would be able to host his own b-day party at Lure last Friday entitled, Sprung.” Delores Shante's Partyline column in the St. Louis American talked about how Bradford was supposed to host his b-day party but got locked up for missing two court dates and apparently for the lack of child support payments to his baby mamma. Well, his folks wishes were not granted cuz when OUTTOWN arrived to his party, we got word that he was still locked up and wont be coming out of the slammer until that Monday. Nevertheless, the money that was collected that note at his party was more like a fundraiser for Bradford’s bail.
