Shontae Henry Working
On Debut Gospel Album
Dear Advice Diva:
My boyfriend is one of
the greatest gu> s I've ever met,
he's kind, handsome and loving,
and I've never respected a man
more. So what's the problem?
He picks his nose in the car and
it's really grossing me out!
I've mentioned this to him
man} times and he simply says
that he likes to pick his nose in
the car! He sees no reason to
change. I always offer him a
tissue, and he alw ays says, “No,
thanks, I've got it.'’
His manners, other than the
nose-picking, are fine. I find this
so distastefiil, and I'm not sure
what to do about it. Any
Unless you want to start a
major fight and demand that he
start using a tissue to clean his
nose, not that this would
necessarily result in anything
productive, you're going to have
to wait till he grows up a bit.
Your guy may be kind,
handsome and loving, but
picking his nose in the car, in
front of \ ou, yet, seems a little
immature, not to mention
unsanitary. Give him some time
to grow out of his foul habit.
Meanwhile, keep offering the

Play A Hit With Students
By Chuck Carr
■Romeo & Juliet' by
William Shakespeare was
performed by the FSU theatre
company from No^ ember 15-17.
This production of "Romeo and
Juliet’' took place during the
Watts Riots in 1965 in an inner city
housing project in South Los
Angeles. Every thing from the
clotliing down to the hair-dos and
the cast dance routine was perfect
for that period of time.
The dialect, well, that
was another story. During the
procession of the play, many
complaints were heard from the
audience about not being able to
comprehend the use of the Old
English tongue, in conjunction
w ith the setting of the play. Was
this a wise decision? Ob\iously
not. The production was great, but
the dialect was the only flaw.
The actors and actresses
were excellent and the stage props
and lighting were perfect. Romeo,
portray ed by Sirwalter Hemphill
was intriguing and realistic. Juliet

was no slouch herself. Miranda
Childers performed her part well
with emotion, and her intense
passion added to the lo\ e story .
The elderly nurse played by
Ernestine W. Smith added
character and humor to the stage,
while Tybalt. Benvolio and
Mercutio played by Kevin
McCrimmon. Ray fiis Wilson, and
Raymond Sharp provided
additional comic relief and drama.
This play desers es an A-minus. If
it weren't for the dialect, the grade
would have easily been an A-plus.
Shontae Henry hopes to become
a gospel star.
Shontae can add this as another
achievement on her list of
successes, right under being the
first out of 40 grandchildren to

The Bronco Family has had
the pleasure of watching
Shontae w in talent show s and

cried in her mother’s arms.
That's when Lydia Henry,
Shontae’s proud motlier, knew
Shontae would be a singer.
Since the age of three, Shontae

people through her talent.
Shontae has been w orking
since 1997 to share her calling
with the world. She first
debuted on Pepperco Records
