Genesis Beauty Salon sponsored a premier of Tyler Perry's "Colored Girls" Sunday afternoon at Hollywood Theaters and there was not an empty seat in sight. It was full of beautiful African American women from all age groups including myself. It was a beautiful sight to see. I really enjoyed the movie and I really enjoyed seeing it with the ladies! Thanks Alesha Wells for hosting us!

Twenty beautiful young ladies were presented Saturday night at the Class of 2010 Christ Debutantes Commencement Ball at the MCM Elegante Hotel. I was honored to serve as Mistress of Ceremony. The ladies completed a nine-month program in which they met weekly to learn how to be strong christian women as well as practical lessons on etiquette, career planning, and writing a business plan. The program is sponsored by Antioch Baptist Church. It is open to young ladies 14 to 17 years old. The debs were escorted by their fathers, stepfathers, godfathers, brothers, and uncle. They were crowned by their mothers and grandmothers. It was a beautiful ceremony. Congrats to the Debs, Lady Dorrie Adolph, and Minister Arlicia Albert. For more information on the program, contact the church.

The Republicans swept the three Jefferson County-wide positions (JP, County Assessor, and Country Treasurer) which mirrored what happened across the country during Tuesday night's election. I was with the Democratic Party at the Ticket watching election returns and it became clear early on that it wasn't going to be their night. Oh well. There's always next time. Kudos to all candidates who ran good hard campaigns. You should all be proud!
