I guess the newz this week in the STL have been the St. Louis Rams on and off the grid iron. On Tuesday, reportedly, The St. Louis Rams fired offensive guard Claude Terrell after he was arrested and charged with assaulting his wife at a suburban Houston hotel. Police in the Houston suburb of Webster said they found a woman with "obvious signs of physical injury" after responding to a disturbance at a Hampton Inn. The woman said she was Terrell's wife and told police he had assaulted her. The 6-foot-2, 330-pound Terrell was found at a nearby hotel, where he was arrested and charged with assault-family violence, a class A misdemeanor, police said. The Rams also is cutting him off its payroll as well. OUCH! First Terrell mouths off to head coach Scott Linehan during practice before last Sundays game with Seattle, now this. It is apparent that Linehan has a problem with his temper………………… Speaking of the Rams, rumors are buzzing that Scott Linehan may be joing Terrell on the unemployment line stemming from the Rams’ 0-7 start after losing to the Seattle Seahawks 33-6 last Sunday ( and is the biggest losing streak in the franchise’s 70-year history). I guess Superman QB Marc Bulger couldn’t save the day last Sunday and it is apparent that the team is in dire need for the Black Hornet—Steven Jackson………………..In other sports news, Tony LaRussa agreed to a two year deal to manage the Cards for a 13th season. It was up in the air whether he was coming especially after the cards owners fired longtime GM Walt Jocketty who hired LaRussa in 1995. I guess the owners must have given him a deal that a rich man couldn’t even refuse. ………

In other newz, there was a rally (PICTURED RIGHT) for former STL Fire Chief Sherman George last Sunday. Critics of Mayor Francis Slay announced a campaign to force a recall vote against the mayor using the combined efforts of groups angered by City Hall's handling of everything from lead abatement programs to downtown redevelopment. The rally, held in front of City Hall, was organized by the Clergy Coalition, a collection of about 60 African-American preachers. They were joined by community activists and elected officials who spoke on a wide range of issues. The crowd numbered 250 to 300 people. The organizers say they will lead more rallies until something is done on all levels. Now you heard it from OUTTOWN but I think George is not coming back and he is looking at the ATL for employment (That trip George took to Hotlanta a few weeks back when he called in to Don Wolff’s former talk show And Justice fro All on KMOX during the promotions controversy was not just happenstance!) …………………What’s the deal with nine juveniles breaking free from the Hogan Street Regional Youth Center in North St. Louis last Saturday.. Authorities say the teens attacked a female security guard, took her keys and took off and jumped a 12-foot fence. It has been reported that the juvies had flown from the premises cause of their anger that a staffer was reassigned. As of this writing, four of them have been apprehended (with the help of their families) and taken into custody. Well, with this happening, I’m sure they wil not receive time out for their actions…………There was an unveiling ceremony last Saturday for the opening of the Tamm Ave Bridge with an official ribbon cutting ceremony. It is one of many projects in the 1-64 bridge redevelopment project. I think the STL can really celebrate until they take down the Mark McGwire sign on Highway 70 and rename it Ozzie Smith Highway. Okay?...................... Speaking of highways and all, be ion the lookout for the police on I-170, They have been using the speed gun to see how many folk speed on that highway where the construction is and the speed limit if 45…………….

What’s goin’ on in Dexter, Mo and the dogfighting goin’ on there? According to reports, authorities seized 25 pit bulls and one beagle from an alleged dog-fighting operation outside Dexter, Mo., early Sunday, then arrested three people suspected of being connected with the fights. Law enforcement authorities raided the operation in Stoddard County in southeast Missouri after getting a tip about the illegal fighting there. I guess the city really give meaning to the remake to “Who Let the Dogs Out?” with, “Who Outed the Dogs?”……………………..I reported earlier this month about the Crysler Plant goin’ back to work after their strike and makin a deal with UAW about their concerns. NOT entirely. The big automakers are losing money on their North American operations. Unless that changes, the jobs of all union members eventually could be in jeopardy, along with the health insurance and other benefits earned by retirees under previous contracts. The tentative agreement now being voted on by Chrysler workers nationwide, as well as the Fenton, Mo. Plant, includes a compensation package that would keep present UAW members even with inflation.……………

Speaking of cars, did you all see the new local commercial that STL jazz diva Denise Thimes (PICTURED RIGHT) did for Merollis Chevrolet? I think it airs mostly during the day when folk are at work, but she is on there, looking very sincere and making sure people get themselves a good car deal(I was waiting for her to sing the theme song, but oh well. LOL) ….

I haven’t been jotting down on this, but for the past month or so SIUC have been on SIUC Prez Glenn Poshard (PICTURED LEFT) to step down because of some students believing that his doctoral thesis that he wrote in 1984 was plagiarized. There have been protests from both campuses, but a faculty committee at Southern Illinois University reportedly has recently concluded that the president, committed "inadvertent plagiarism" in his doctoral dissertation, but recommended that no penalty be assessed against him. The report finds "many instances" in the dissertation in which "the words of others are present in a continuous flow with student Poshard's own words, so that readers cannot distinguish between those sources. "The report describes the copying in Mr. Poshard's dissertation, which he completed at the university in 1984, as "errors and mistakes" and "inadvertent plagiarism." C’mon now, you tell me truthfully, is there such a thing as an original thought in the first place?..........................Did you know that East St. Louis native/filmmaker Reginald Hudlin is the executive producer of the ht animation show The Boondocks that is shown on the Cartoon Network? He is also doing double duty as the Exec producer of entertainer at Black Entertainment TV as well....................

Speaking of locals doing it up on TV. There are two ladies named Jenna who can be seen on the TV Tube. New on board is Jenna Bailey (FIRST RIGHT), a St. Louis native who is a recent graduate at the University of St. Louis. She can be seen on the new spinoff series "College Hill Interns" on BET. This basketball playing video girl turned PR apprentice is a part of a cast of 10 students and recent graduates who are competing for an to intern for some of the world's biggest companies in the windy city of Chicago. It comes on Tuesdays on BET. Te other Jenna is Jenna Fischer (FAR RIGHT) who plays receptionist Pam Beesley on the hit TV show, “the Office” on NBC (Thursdays). She was recently nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy (she was actually was born Regina Marie Fischer in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on March 7, 1974 and Raised in St. Louis technically) She attended Truman State University in Kirksville made her debut as a professional actress in the 1998 film Born Champion (1998) and her mom is Anne Fischer , a drama teacher in the STL……

Looks like STL comedian Lavelle Crawford is coming home to perform as part of the Last Comic Standing finalists tour. Crawford, who was the 1st runner up, will perform along with winner John Reep and finalists Gery Dee, Amy Schumer and Ralph Harris (who had a bit part in last year’s blockbuster “Dreamgirls” and in the short lived ABc show, “On Our Own”) Nov 5 at the Family Arena and Nov. 16 at Harrah’s Casino…………….

OUTTOWN got an email from a fellow blogger Lisa M. Rose (PICTURED WITH HER SON, IAN) who wrote, “ I checked out your website. wanted to send you the link to my site which will feature many positive sisters from STL who are doing their thing! BTW, went to college with mocha latte and we're really good friends. hope you can shout out my site. Well, Ms. Rose. Consider it done. To check out her site go to

A locally filmed movie will have its second premiere here in the STL area. STL Co-directors Falaq and Rukahs will screen its flick, “Ruzzian Roulette” next month during this years’ St. Louis International film festival. The film, which deals with a man who intentionally gives women the HIV-virus in the St. Louis area, stars local actor/director Joel P.E. King (PICTURED LEFT) (SEE EVENT-BITZ FOR MORE INFO AND TO SEE THE TRAILER GO TO OUTTOWN VIDS on the upper left column at )………What’s up with Illinois Police Dept not having an age restriction for citizens to apply for a FOID (Firearm Owners Identification) Card to carry ammunition for a gun? State police propose minimum age of 10 to be eligible for firearm owner identification card. According to the gun law, there is no minimum age right now. What got this issue going, a man applied for a FOID for his 11-month old son and he was issue done. What’s next, giving kiddies condoms to play safe oochie coochie?............. Speaking of guns, a source told me over the weekend about the STL Happy Hour, a club in Halls Ferry got in touch with some gunfire when a crew from Castle Point shot a girl in foot and a back window out. Too much playin……………..What’s up with schools in the Metro area? On Tuesday, someone called in a bomb threat at Hazlewood East that turned out to be a prank, then some hooligans stole air conditions at Glasgow Elementary in the Riverview Gardens District. A source told OUTTOWN that the burglars stole all of the AC units and left holes in the roof. The State is also about to review the first 100 days of the state-appointed board that took over the St. Louis Public School District as well.…….

On the East Side, the ESL Fire Dept and the fire marshals are still investigating how the old Harding Elementary School building (PICTURED RIGHT) in East St. Louis burned and gutted the vacant school a couple of weeks ago (the school moved to a different building mid-last year) The fire was on the second-floor of the two-story building extended up the wall to a skylight and was beyond the capacity of the East St. Louis firefighters to handle. (from reports the ESL Fire Dept requested help from the St. Louis Fire Department, which brought over three pieces of equipment, including a 130-foot aerial platform to battle the blaze. This is dear to YOURS TRULY cause it s my alma mater ……And speaking of East St. Louis, fire and investigations, lastly, there is one going on as we speak after the mysterious burning of former East St. Louis City Alderman Cleophus Carr who was burned over 80percent of his body in house on 54th Street in East St. Lou and eventually died from his injuries What makes this strange was, it occurred in August and it had just been reported last week in the Belleville News and Monitor newspapers. Carr died Aug. 25 after spending 17 days in the burn unit at St. John's Medical Center in St. Louis County. Carr had been airlifted there from St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Belleville. Meanwhile, speculation grew as to Carr's whereabouts after the fire and Carr's funeral was on Sept. 1, and was limited to immediate family members and a few close friends only who were notified the night before. Nonetheless, after more than two months, there is a mystery of how he got burned. This is definitely a case for UnSolved Mysteries for sure. It could have been foulplay. Either way, RIP to him and OUTTOWN give sits prayers to his family.

WORDZ TO THE WHYZ—THE BET HIP HOP AWARDS. I know you all saw the Bet Hip Hop Awards last week and herre are a few whyz that I wanted to ask. Why did the Pre-show and Target Cam fell short of excitement?..........Why did host comedian Katt Williams wear a noose around his neck on red carpet in his protest to the Jena 6 decision?.............Speaking of Jena 6, why were two of the Jena 6 boys there on the award show and was giving a standing ovation by the audience?............Why did rapper David Banner hold up a Michael vick jersey after his intelligent speech for to hip-hop to grow up?.......Why haven’t Common ever won a BET Award prior to this years; Hip Hop Awards?...........Why did Kanye West’s gesture to givehis Video of the year Award to UNK seemed self serving?.....Why was Big Boi talking as though he took a speed pill?................Why did Pres/CEO Debra Lee look mortified after Soldier Boy came out into the crowd and shook her hand?..........Why did it seem as though educators Cornell West and Michael Eric Dyson were tryin to hard to be down with new school hip-hop?.............Why didn’t KRS One give a commentary during his speech when he won the legend Award? And Why was MC Lyte on stage? (My DIRECTV signal went out when the bad thunderstorm came through the city. LOL)

Keisha gettin some of the line! I heard there was a brotha who was voguing up in therre, too, but I must have been either tryin to find my way to the restroom to retch out the alcohol from my system. LOL.

So Diverse's Lia and Jameelah. I also saw their biz partner Deidria B. therre, but I thought she was in the ATL these days? Hmmm. So Diverse helped sponsor the event.

Perfection Five: Boone's brother, and Perfecction Enterprises' Boone, Treanna, and Jamie Spencer and guest pose for a picture.

Some of the crowd

Stress Free's Mark Jones and Fred Williams (Look out ladies, Williams told OUTTOWN he just did a romance novel cover shoot in NYC for Harlequinn I believe that will be coming out later on this month. I will give you the skinny on this soon.)

YOURS TRULY in a I'm-buzzed pose and Jones. Oh and check out my gear!

"Yo, dude you can't believe what just happened!" This brotha was outside where an ambulance an called by J Bucks owners. Apparently a sista who was inside the venue had too many drinks and graced the floor with the contents!

The Yani Take Over. Yani Company's Ms. Tia B., Jarell Moore, Janet Moore and Cerise Cohee.

"Yo, yo, yo, you better have my money!." LOL

The VIP area upstairs was off the chain. Drinks were free. I think this is where I lost my celly (but thankfully recovered. I will tell you the story later on.)

Therre's Robert Kirk (left) lookin over the crowd from the VIP section. His group, Precision was one of the three groups that sponsored the event.

FREE TIME's Adam Saddler flanked by some STL beauties. His group was the other organization sponsoring the event.

EVENT-VIEWZ. I peeped out FREE TIME, Precision and So Diverse's hot event Forbidden that was held at J Bucks at Clayton. I was curious to see if the event would be like 1st Fridays' event that was held at the new J Bucks in St. Louis downtown last month. In my opinion, the "fung shwei" at Clayton's was better. It was more roomier and it was easier to get around.

I enjoyed this event. It was classy and err one seemed to have fun (It was also interesting a lot of the VIPers were MIA like Mocha Latte, MPAC's Mo Witherspoon, 1st friday's Fred Finley and Harry Michel , and comedian Darius Bradford, to name a few) regardless of the two DRAMA events that happend to me. But before I get to them I like to thank Eddie Hollman of SYGU who got Jameelah from So Diverse to get me into the event (theres was an apparent non listing of my name on the guest list).

There was a TMP (TOO MUCH PLAYIN) moment that occurred when YOURS TRULY was in VIP. I dont know how I got my VIP wristband (I had gotten my CAMO buzz on before I got therre) but I had gotten one and put it on my wrist and I got the word that the drinks were free (as opposed to 10 bucks for some of the drinks that were at the regular bar!). So I go up therre and start my first of three Absolut cocktails. When I walked down the steps and walked throughout the crowd, I felt something stick to the back of my pants. I took it off and there were about 15 undetached VIP paper bracelets! What Tha??? So I ended up passing out a few throughout the crowd (One of my sources tod me that a guy was looking for me who told my source, 'Yo, man, where;s your boy with the VIP things? I got three bitches that want one." LOL) Too Much Playin!

And now for the 2 dramas.

Ist DRAMA event: Around midnite or so, as I was taking snaps of the crowd and all walking around and drinking, I felt the side of my waist I realized that my cell phone and its holder were gone. SHIT! I spent about 15 minutes walkin around the venue with my head down tryin to figure out where I must have dropped it. Can you imagine tryin to find something and hundreds of people are around? I didnt know whether someone found it, took it or what (and tryin to find it while your head is buzzed is like tryin to find Casper the Friendly Ghost!)

Meanwhile, I walked out the venue to try and find a land line phone to call my cell phone (There was no way I could do it at J Bucks with all the loud music and people talkin and all). As I walked outside on the sidewalk I saw comedian Javon Bibbs walkin up. I gave him some dap and a frat hug. I dont know how I was lookin at him but I wished he was the one who found my cell phone (wishful thinking of course.)

So as I am walking, head spinnin, I saw the Crowne Hotel a few doors down and decided to walk to the lobby and ask the hotel front desk if I could use their phone so I can call my celly that I lost. They obliged and I called it with wobbly fingers. The first time, my voice mail kicked in. That was it. I waited a couple of minutes and called again. Then a young lady answered, "Hello?" I shouted out, "Hello, yeah I lost a cell phone." She asked, "Whats; your name?" I gave her my name. Then she said, 'Its here up front." I could have started doin the Soldier Boy, the Moonwalk and a cartwheel after hearing that!!!

I walked back to J Bucks and to the bar area (passing up the front where the four sistas were receiving the cash from the patrons) . I didnt really know where in particular someone had my phone, but something told me to walk back up to the front area where the sistas where who were collecting money. I asked them from behind them, "Anyone find a cell phone." One of them said, "Whats your name.' I gave it to her and she handed it to me.

I was relieved, but that wasn't all.

When I got my third drink from VIP and drank it, I started feeling queasy. So, a few minutes after I finsiehd the drink, I headed to my march to the restroom. I got there and went into one of the stalls, looked down at the camode and me and it became very perosnal as I heaved out all the Abosults and Sevens I had drank.

After I finished, I still had a buzzed out feeling (And I usually drink water after each drink. And around that time, about 1 in the morning, they turned the lights up. I saw someone and told him that I needed some assistance to my car and he obliged. It was though I was Ray Charles or someobdy up in therre.

I decided not to drive and decided get a room at the Crown Hotel until the buzz wore off.
