African-Americans Poised to Make History in Historic Election


by H.T. Edney
For the first time in American his-
tory, millions of voters will cast
their ballots on Tuesday in an elec-
tion in which an African-American
is the nominee of a major political
party, fulfilling the long-held


dreams of civil rights veterans.
"I've always hoped so and I've
also worked for this idea," says 96-
year-old Dr. Dorothy Height, presi-
dent emeritus of the National
Council of Negro Women. "I think
this will help the whole country,


people of all backgrounds...I know
historically, African-Americans
will feel good about it, but, I think
everybody across the country will
have the realization that there are
people in all groups who have the
capability to be president."


That hope, birthed in the race
between Democratic Sen. Barack
Obama and Republican Sen. John
McCain has translated into massive
voter registration numbers nation-
wide in the contentious and historic
race. Continued on page 9

Matthews Clan Makes Voting a Family Affair
Fred and Anna Mathews, their children and grandchildren made voting
a family affair over the weekend taking the advice of Senator Obama and
voting early --as a family. The elder Matthews and his wife Anna have
always emphasized the role of voting to their family.
"Helping your children and grandchildren to understanding and exercise
their right to vote is one of the greatest legacies a parent can leave",
Matthews said.


Michelle Obama sent supporters and admirers into a frenzy when she
took the time to shake hands after her stop in Jacksonville last week. Over
4,000 turned out for the mid-day visit at the Prime Osborne Convention
Center. Shown above in the sea of women are Karen Kincade, Geraldine
Minnifield and Diana Spicer agreeing the woman they hope will soon be

White Supremacists Arrested for Plot to Kill Barack Obama


Daniel Cowart and Paul
Schlesselman allegedly plotted to
kill 103 African-Americans,
including Sen. Barack Obama,
American's first Black nominee
of a major political party.
by George Curry
Two neo-Nazi skinheads plotted
a national killing spree that would
have ended in the shooting deaths
of 88 African-Americans, decapita-
tion of 14 more, and culminated in
the assassination of Democratic
presidential candidate Barack
Obama, federal authorities have
announced.
Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells,
Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman, 18,
of West Helana, Ark., were charged
in U.S. District Court in Nashville
with illegal possession of a sawed-
off shotgun, conspiracy to rob a gun
store and making threats against a
major presidential candidate.
An affidavit by Brian A. Weeks, a
special agent with the Justice
Department's Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives,
was unsealed Monday, disclosing
details of the disrupted murder
scheme that included targeting
Black school children. A copy of
the affidavit is posted on the Web
site, smokinggun.com.
"Approximately 1 month ago
Cowart and Schlesselman met via
the internet through a mutual
friend," the agent stated. "Each
individual claims to have very
strong beliefs and views regarding
'White Power' and 'Skinhead'
views. The individuals began dis-


cussing going on a 'killing spree'
that included killing 88 people and
beheading 14 African-Americans."
The numbers 88 Blacks and 14
have significance in the White
supremacy movement, authorities
explained. The eighth letter of the
alphabet is "H," and the number
used twice signifies "HH," short-
hand for the Nazi greeting, "Heil


Hitler." And 14 represents the num-
ber of words in the White Power
slogan, "We must secure the exis-
tence of our people and a future for
White children."
The pair planned to finance their
killing spree by burglarizing homes;
they expected to obtain additional
weapons by robbing federally-
licensed gun dealers.


According to Special Agent
Weaks' affidavit, "Cowart and
Schlesselman further stated that on
October 20, 2008, Cowart traveled
from Tennessee to Arkansas, to pick
up Schlesselman and bring
Schlesselman to Tennessee to carry
out the aforementioned acts.
Schelesselman also brought the -

On Saturday October 25, 2008, the Old Floradale Neighborhood Association held their 2nd Annual
Neighborhood Association Block Party in the 5000 block of Campenella Dr. Over 100 former residents and
neighbors attended the community event. Attendee's included Jacksonville City Council District 10 Candidate
Reggie Brown and Councilwoman Mia Jones. Participants came from near and far to enjoy the festivities and
reminisce about the old days of fun and camaraderie. JSO patrolmen Chris Robinson and C. Kreeger cruised by
and mingled with residents as they enjoyed food, fun, relay races and old fashioned bingo games.

Six Steps to Improve Credit


Contrary to what you might see
in some advertisements, there is
no magic way to raise your credit
score. That doesn't mean you can't
improve your score with good
old-fashioned attention and effort.
All you need to do is see to it that
errors are removed, deal with any
disputes with your creditors that
are resulting in a reduction in your
score and -- for most people --
improve your payment history
and lower your debt.
Your score won't jump overnight,
but you should see steady
improvement over time.
First Step: Read Your Credit
Report
The first step to a higher credit
score is to order your credit
report, which is the roadmap used
to calculate that score.
You can request one by visiting
www.annualcreditreport.com or
calling one of the three main cred-
it reporting agencies: Equifax,
Experian, and TransUnion. You
are entitled to one free report a
year from each one.
Second Step: Deal with Credit
Report Agency Errors
When you get your report, first,
check your personal information
(name, addresses, job history), to
make sure your file hasn't been
merged with someone else. Then
check the accounts listed. You
may find one listed more than
once or one that is not yours
included in the report.
If you discover any mistakes,
send a written letter to the credit
bureau listing what is wrong with
the information on the credit
report and how you think it should
be corrected. The agency has 30
days to respond to your letter and
indicate how it will handle your
challenges to the report. If the
error was simple, that may be all
you need to do to take care of it.
Third Step: Disputing
Creditors' Claims
Your report may include errors
that aren't so easy to fix. For
example, some consumers walk
away when they are in billing dis-
putes with creditors when they are
confident they are in the right. But
creditors may report a lack of pay-
ment to an agency.
To correct those kinds of inac-
curacies, you may need to contact
the creditor directly. From the
time you first hear back from the
credit reporting agency when you
report an error, you have 60 days
to try to get the creditor to correct
the information. During that peri-
od if you are not satisfied with the
response of the creditor, you can
then contact the credit reporting
agency again and ask for an addi-
tional investigation.
Fouth Step: When It's Smart
to Just Pay the Bill
If you've been battling it out


with a creditor and don't want to
pay the bill, you could end up
severely damaging your credit
score. While credit scoring com-
panies must investigate any credit
information you challenge, they
tend to agree with the vendor in
ongoing disputes and will only
take the negative mark off your
credit report temporarily while
investigating a complaint.
If the amount in question is
small enough that you can pay it
off without financial distress, you
may be better off paying the bill
and taking the vendor to small
claims court for a refund. Why
hurt your credit score over a $30
or $50 dispute?
If the amount in question is
much larger and you want to con-
tinue fighting, be sure you tell a
potential creditor to expect the
negative report and explain why
you won't pay the bill. In some
instances it may help, but don't be
surprised if you can't get the best
interest rates.
Fifth Step: Only Use Some of
Your Available Credit
The ideal way to use credit is to
use only 10% to 20% of your
available credit and pay all your
bills on time. That seems to get
people the best credit scores. You
may think you have to pay down
all your credit cards to zero to get
a good credit score. That's not
true. To show you know how to
use credit wisely, it doesn't hurt to
occasionally pay a card over time.
Another mistake people make
when they want to improve their
credit score is to cancel credit
cards. That can actually hurt your
score since it reduces your avail-
able credit. Then your debt uti-
lization ratio (the amount of debt
you have as a percentage of your
available credit) is higher -- which
may lower your credit score.
Sixth Step: Pay Monthly Bills
Ahead
There really aren't many ways to
give your credit score a quick
boost if you already have low debt
and a stellar payment history. But
I can suggest one technique you
can try if you want to give your
score a lift ahead of applying for a
major loan, such as a mortgage.
If you pay your cards in full
each month, those payments are
made after the report has been
sent to the credit reporting agency
(right after the end of the billing
cycle), so your outstanding debt
looks higher than it is. If you're
trying to improve your credit
score, all you have to do pay your
total bill at the end of the month -
- before actually being billed.
Check your balance due online or
call your credit card company. If
you do this for a few months, you
should see a nice improvement in
your credit score.

The bursting of the real estate
bubble has created an oversupply of
vacant and abandoned homes.
Housing values have tumbled and
today, it's a buyer's market. I asked
Linwood Smith, a real estate agent
with McMullan Realty in
Cleveland, Ohio, is this the time to
buy real estate as an investment?
"It's a good time, if you have cash
and you know what you are doing.
However, if you think you are
going to get in and make a fast
buck, you will probably end up los-
ing your shirt."
Today's market
Houses for sale are plentiful and
the values are down, however, the
availability of credit to investors is
tight. According to Agent Smith,
"in Cleveland, you can find a
decent investor property for $5,000,
but you might need $20-$25,000 to
make it rentable. Cash is king and
you have to be able to hold the
property until the overall market


turns around."
Before you invest
Real estate investing is a "hands
on" business. Successful investors
understand the process of finding
and negotiating deals; financing the
transactions; upgrading the proper-
ty; renting and/or holding the prop-
erty and finally profitably selling
the property. Understanding how to
deal with buyers and sellers,
lenders, contractors, tenants and
various others in the real estate
industry is critical to success.
Educate Yourself- Before buying
any property, go to the library and
read about 20 books on real estate
investing. Buy books and tapes on
the subject and talk with other
investors about their experiences.
Focus on a Market Area Pick an
area that you want to invest in and
look at 20 to 30 houses in that area
before making a serious offer. By
doing so, you will learn the neigh-
borhood, property market values,
rents, types of tenants, etc.
Small is good Although apart-


ment buildings may look attractive,
some of the most profitable invest-
ments are in one to four unit prop-
erties. There are a limited number
of buyers for large properties and
they are professional investors,
looking to buy at wholesale prices.
Also, in today's high cost energy
environment, avoid properties with
central heating systems.
Consider a Partner- For your ini-
tial real estate investments, consid-
er working with a partner. Having a
partner may allow you to share the
investment costs, work load and the
learning experience. Additionally,
partners can help bolster each
other's confidence and decision
making. When considering a part-
ner look for someone with a similar
temperament, similar investment
goals and someone who is willing
to share the financial burden and
work load.
Insulate yourself Have separate
checking and bookkeeping systems
for your real estate business and
personal accounts. Additionally,


have a separate phone line for use
with tenants and prospective buyers
and sellers. Finally, make sure you
have adequate property and liability
insurance.
Understand Your Portfolio Real
estate investing is more than just
adding an asset class in a portfolio.
Real estate can impact a family's
personal risk profile; tax liability
and estate planning. Successful real
estate investors understand the total
impact of their investments on their
overall financial situation.
Real estate investing is not for
everyone. It is a "hands-on" invest-
ment that requires a broad set of
management skills. However, in
today's market, for those with cash
to invest and a lot of sweat equity,
real estate investing can be a finan-
cial game changer.

handgun both of which Cowart stat-
ed were stolen from his grandfather.
All of these firearms were recov-
ered during the course of the inves-
tigation.
"Upon arriving in Tennessee
Cowart and Schlesselman further
discussed the killing spree to
include targeting a predominantly
African-American school, going
state to state while robbing individ-
uals and continuing to kill people.
They further stated that their final
act of violence would be to attempt
to kill/assassinate Presidential
Candidate Barack Obama. Cowart
stated that they planned to use his
FASI .308 caliber rifle and a high
powered rifle that was to be stolen
from the aforementioned FFL
[Federal Firearms Licensee] to
facilitate their attempt to assassi-
nate Obama. Schesselman stated
that they planned to drive their
vehicle as fast as they could toward


Obama shooting at him from the
windows. Both individuals stated
they would dress in all white tuxe-
dos and wear top hats during the
assassination attempt. Both individ-
uals further stated they knew they
would and were willing to die dur-
ing this attempt."
The two White supremacists told
authorities that while driving
around one morning, they shot out a
window at Beech Grove Church of


Christ, a Black church in
Brownsville, Tenn.
Scrawled on Cowart's car were a
Swastika, the numbers 14 and 88 as
well as some racist language.
Both men were arrested last
Wednesday in Crockett County and
made their first appearance in fed-
eral court on Monday in Memphis.
A hearing will be held Thursday to
determine whether bond should be
set.

Page 4 Ms. Perry's Free Press


There I was walking with a group
of elected officials and Average Joe
citizens or Joe the Plumbers. Yes, I
know I will not even address the
whole "Joe the Plumber" ridicu-
lousness.
But back to the picture I was
painting. As the group of 40 to 50
people, mostly Obama supporters
walked across Norwood Avenue
headed to the Supervisor of
Elections office in Gateway it
struck me.
This would be the first time I
have ever early voted. In the past, I
have always stuck to my guns
voted on election day. In fact, I
have always felt that it was more
symbolic to vote on Election Day.
But Councilwoman and soon to be
State Rep Mia Jones said it best in
the pre-march rally.
She said that from now until
November 4th we have to tell peo-
ple that every day is election day.
There's not just one day we need
to basically get people to the polls
as soon as possible. Who knows
what can happen between now and
the official election day?
I stood there thinking now that
makes sense. I had looked at this
early voting system all-wrong in
the past. I had thought of it as some
novel idea that few people took
advantage of.
Today, candidates are using early
voting as a key component of their
campaign strategy, and it's paying
off for many candidates.
To finish my early voting story -


By Bill Spriggs
Campaigning in Florida, Sen.
McCain described Sen. Obama's
plan to cut taxes for 95 percent of
American families by saying, "His
plan gives away your tax dollars to
those who don't pay taxes. That's
not a tax cut; that's welfare."
McCain argues that 40 percent of
American families don't pay taxes.
More accurately, he means that
many American workers in the bot-
tom 40 percent of earnings do not
have a positive income tax liability
because they get a refund through
the Earned Income Tax Credit that
is bigger than the income taxes
withheld from their paychecks.
However, that is not the same as
not owing taxes. In fact, workers
with the lowest earnings have a net
positive federal tax liability from
their Federal Insurance
Contribution Act (FICA) tax. The
FICA tax goes to support Social
Security, but currently also builds
up a surplus used to buy U.S.
Treasury notes that finance the gen-
eral operations of the government.
In fact, after the individual income
tax, the largest source of federal
revenue is the FICA tax; last year
the government took in $1.2 trillion
in personal income tax and $870
billion in FICA tax, and took in
roughly equal money from both
income and FICA taxes in 2003.
Workers pay more than twice in
FICA tax than the government
receives from corporate income
taxes. So, when Senator Obama
promises to cut taxes he is only
being fair to Latisha the practical
nurse, and letting her share in tax
relief as much as Joe the plumber
would.


once we marched over to the elec-
tions office we found out that
Congresswoman Corrine Brown
was already there. Unfortunately,
her attempt at casting the first bal-
lot at that location was denied
because of faulty equipment.
Now I could write a full page
article about how outlandish it is
for voting machines not to work on
the first day of early voting consid-
ering the machines were supposed
to be tested several times before
polls opened.
However, the problem was fixed
and those who attempted to vote on
Monday, October 20th, have had
their votes counted well at least
that's what we are told.
Is it just me or is not this the last
place on earth that voting machines
should ever be broken considering
the debacle of 2000? Talk about
dredging up old feelings I don't
even want to rehash the thousands
of black votes thrown out.
There was some silver lining that
came out of the dark election cloud
of 2000. Initiatives like early vot-
ing really became not only some
interesting novel practice they have
become a normal part of election
systems countrywide.
And again, many candidates are
now incorporating an early voting
strategy as apart of their get out the
vote operations.
To give you an idea of how criti-
cal early voting has become just
look at a state like North Carolina.
More than 210,000 blacks who


Senator McCain has argued to
continue President Bush's tax cuts
for those making above $250,000 a
year, arguing that those Bush tax
cuts set to sunset in 2010 are vital
to creating jobs. But, letting those
tax cuts sunset would return the
marginal tax rates for the wealthiest
five percent back to what they paid
when Bill Clinton was president.
With those higher tax rates in place,
President Clinton generated almost
23 million jobs in his eight years of
office. With the Bush tax cuts put in
place, the economy under President
Bush has generated fewer than five
million jobs in eight years. So, I
think the real plumbers and small
business owners know that with
falling new construction, declining
construction jobs and two straight
months of falls in retail sales, a tax
cut that gets them more customers
buying their goods and services
would be a good and productive
thing.
And jobs and job creation are
clearly important for African-
Americans. When the economy
was generating those 23 million
jobs with those higher tax rates, the
unemployment rate for African-
Americans fell to record lows, the
share of African-Americans who
were employed reached record
highs, and so family incomes for
African- Americans grew to record
highs while poverty levels fell to
record lows. Under the Bush tax
cuts, today the unemployment rate
for African- Americans is in double
digits, poverty rates have climbed
and incomes are still lower than the
peak levels reached under
President Clinton eight years ago.
Senator McCain is not offering tax


are registered as Democrats have
cast early ballots in the state com-
pared to approximately 174,000
registered Republicans overall. If
you think that that's an impressive
number think about this fact. Four
years ago, the number of GOP early
and absentee voters was more than
double that of black Democrats.
And it's not just the Tar Heel
state, but states like Florida,
Louisiana, Virginal and many more
are seeing significant early voter
turnout.
In Louisiana, more than 31 per-
cent of the early voters are black,
and Democrats are topping
Republicans nearly 2-to-1.
So you have two key factors -
one, having Barack Obama on the
ballot has obviously energized
black folk everywhere. Secondly,
there has been a strategic effort to
get voters to the polls early.
The Democrats are beating
Republicans to the punch. In the
past the GOP has been masterful
when it comes to banking votes
through absentee ballots. The early
voting process has been much more
beneficial to the Democratic style
of campaigning.
More than 30 states are now
allowing any registered voter to
cast an early ballot. The initiative
makes sense for elections officials
because it eases the strain on Nov.
4. Federal sources are saying that
about a third of voters nationwide
are expected to cast their ballots
before Election Day.


cuts to those he thinks earn too lit-
tle to deserve tax cuts. This is of
great concern to African-
Americans, because about 48 per-
cent of African- American house-
holds fall in that category, roughly,
one out of two. As for the privi-
leged households with incomes
above $250,000 a year that Senator
McCain thinks deserve a tax cut,
less than one-half of one percent of
African-American households fall
in that category 1 in 200!
But, it is also necessary to under-
stand what those tax cuts mean.
The Tax Policy Institute, an initia-
tive of the widely respected
Brookings Institute and the Urban
Institute, project that cutting the tax
rates for those high income brack-
ets would cost the U.S. Treasury
$1.6 trillion over ten years.
To put that in perspective, the
government, under President
Bush's current budget, spent a little
less than $500 billion on all discre-
tionary non-defense items-mean-
ing expenditures like Veterans
health care, border and transporta-
tion security, civil and criminal
prosecutions, the National
Institutes of Health (as opposed to
mandatory expenditures like Social
Security, Medicare and Veteran's
retirement benefits).
Or, put another way, this is
enough money to fund all federal
programs in education, highway
construction, small business assis-
tance, space and science technolo-
gy research, and veterans health
benefits for ten years. So to off-set
those tax cuts with cuts in federal
spending would mean either wip-
ing out broad categories of federal
programs, or cutting back those


In the Sunshine State of Florida,
nearly 55 percent of early voters
are registered Democrats. What's
so interesting about that figure is
that Democrats only represent 41
percent share of the electorate in
the Sunshine State.
Bringing the issue closer to home
- Duval County has 536,588 regis-
tered voters. According to the
Supervisor of Elections after the
first week of voting, 70,993 voters
have cast their ballot by voting
early and 32,865 voters have voted
by mail.
Those figures represent approxi-
mately 19.4% of the registered vot-
ers in Duval County.
Now that's a pretty impressive
number for the first week of early
voting. On Saturday I stood in line
with a friend for nearly an hour -
the time didn't seem to matter
because of the renewed emphasis
that many young blacks have
placed on voting.
The best part about standing in
line over in Regency was seeing the
diversity as people filed in. I can't
tell whom everyone was voting for
or that one particular candidate had
more supporters, but I can tell you
that there was a sense of urgency
and hope in the air.
In fact, as November 4th
approaches it seems like the air is
getting fresher by the day.

programs and those of other
domestic programs by one-third.
So, unlike the freeze for federal
programs that Senator McCain has
proposed in the presidential
debates, his tax cuts would require
draconian cuts in some very basic
government functions-just to cut
the tax rates for the five in one hun-
dred Americans who are America's
wealthiest.
It simply isn't straight talk to tell
the American people that $1.6 tril-
lion can be taken out of the federal
government's budget without
inflicting some very painful elimi-
nation of programs that many --

The Black Middle


Class Mantra:

Let them eat cake


by William Reed
The question about African Americans' "empowerment" is not as much
about our political clout as it is whether or not we are better off economi-
cally than we were when Martin Luther King was killed in 1968.
Some black Americans are doing very well. Barack Obama's presidential
run, Tiger Woods is the world's best-paid athlete and former Merrill Lynch
CEO Stanley O'Neal pocketed $160 million in a golden corporate parachute.
But these blacks are the exception rather than the rule. Where MLK's civil
rights activities paid off the most was in spawning a Black Middle Class.
Since the Civil Rights Movement, the black political and middle-income
class has grown significantly. Forty years since MLK declared American
owed a debt to Black Americans, Barack Obama is black's race-neutral
Messiah, and our middle class group is regressing.
With their contemporary image of surfeit, the question surrounding the
Black Middle Class Era is "What contribution have they made toward
Martin's 'dream of economic equity' in America?" The black middle class
grew from the Civil Rights Movement through public policy and increased
opportunities for skills development. Since King died the black middle class
population has quadrupled. In 2008, over a million black households have
annual incomes of $100,000 a year or more. These upward strides and their
excesses have given the illusion that race cannot be the barrier that some
make it out to be.
The rates of self-obsession and consumption among the generations of
black middle class illustrate how static hold reaps regression. Many of the
black middle class are now caught up in the financial meltdown. Despite
their displays of opulence, similar salaries and educational backgrounds, the
majority of the black middle class never enjoyed class-equivalency to whites
The "black middle class" is predominately a development that arose after
the 1960s. Prior to then, African Americans had limited opportunities. In
1960, blacks had little to no access to higher education and only three per-
cent graduated from college. Those blacks who were professionals were
mainly confined to serving the African American population. The Black
Middle Class MLK had envisioned was to grow and impact traditional black
communities.
While a black underclass has remained rooted in urban poverty, blacks of
middle class means started to leave them in the 1970s to pursue quality
schools, security and appreciated property values in suburban neighbor-
hoods. Nowadays, many blacks are finding their grip on middle class is pre-
carious. The value of many Black middle-class homeowners wealth is
falling. Loans that many of them received in the 1990s were high-cost sub
prime loans. Now, the value of their homes is sinking as foreclosures occur
and their banks have frozen home equity lines of credit. Their "trappings of
power" are being foreclosed and America's contemporary black middle class
is being revealed as having been more "symbol" than "substance". In what
Booker T. would have called "frivolous actions," the black middle class'
activities have tilted more toward trappings of consumption than economic
advancement for the race.
The Black Middle Class cashed in on the check MLK said America owed.
As they became "middle-class" they became adherents of the status quo.
Many among the Black Middle Class never think, or act, outside a main-
stream mindset. They became establishment-oriented and provided "insuf-
ficient funds" toward lifting up their fellow Black Americans.
"If they have no bread, let them eat cake," is how the black middle class
has responded to their urban and underclass cousins. To their determent,
middle class blacks have been obsessed with "mainstreaming". Their
unflinching support of the Obama candidacy and acceptance of the
American establishment's indifference to the plight of poor blacks and social
policy needed to maintain affirmative action, end law enforcement and judi-
cial injustices, and increase race-targeted antipoverty programs to help poor
blacks illustrates their abandonment of any legacy of King's economic
dream. As they reel backwards, wonder how many of the black middle class
recognize the error of their deeds?

Six Local Churches Go Red in

November for Heart Health Month
Church members will wear red to raise awareness about the American
Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign. Each congregation
will be encouraged to join the Go Red For Women movement, receive a
red dress pin and learn about the risk factors and warning signs of heart
disease and stroke and how to reduce their risk for these deadly and
debilitating diseases.
Participating churches include:
Northside Church of Christ November 1, 2008 12 PM 5 PM
Perez Ministries International November 2, 2008 11 AM
Westside Church of Christ November 2, 2008 11 AM
The Church Fellowship November 9, 2008 10 AM
Greater Grant AME Church November 9, 2008 11 AM
St. Paul AME Church November 9, 2008 11 AM
Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women. Unfortunately,
only 13 percent of women recognize that heart disease is their leading
cause of death and that it kills nearly 500,000 women a year.
Cardiovascular disease is largely preventable. The Go Red For Women
movement is the American Heart Association's national campaign that
celebrates the passion and power of women to band together to wipeout
heart disease and stroke.
Visit www.GoRedForWomen.org or call 904-739-0197 to find out
how your church can hold a Go Red Sunday celebration.


Crystal Cathedral Preacher

Removed by His Father

Crystal Cathedral founder Rev.
Robert H. Schuller has removed his
son as preacher on the church's
weekly "Hour of Power" syndicat-
ed TV broadcast.
"For this lack of shared vision and
the jeopardy in which this is plac-
ing this entire ministry, it has
become necessary for Robert and
me to part ways," Schuller said.
Robert A. Schuller will remain as
senior pastor of the Crystal
Cathedral, though it was unknown
whether he will continue to preach,
a church spokesman told the Los
Angeles Times.


The elder Schuller said in the
statement that he was bringing in
guest pastors to preach during the
show. Church officials did not
return messages left Saturday seek-
ing comment from Robert A.
Schuller and details about what
prompted the schism between him
and his father.
Robert H. Schuller had turned

"Hour of Power" TV program to his
son during an emotional service at

Minister Charlie McClendon, pas-
tor of Northside Church of Christ
and his lovely bride Ida, celebrated
fifty years of marital bliss last
weekend at the water front home of
Jerome and Joann Brown.
Hundreds of friends, family and
church members enjoyed a night of
humorous and cherished reflections
in an elegant setting.
The McClendons first wed on
Halloween in 1958 in Sunbeam, FL
where he worked at King Edward
Cigars.
"Charlie would walk three miles
almost every day to visit Ida, taking
with him a pork chop sandwich,"
remarked one of the many stories
shared on their courtship. Those
porkchops and miles must've paid
off. Devoid of the pomp and cir-
cumstance of an expensive wed-
ding and honeymoon, they wed at
the courthouse and did not take a
honeymoon.
Bro. McClendon was baptized at
West Side Church of Christ and
became an Elder which paved the
way to him later becoming Pastor at
he North Side Church of Christ


whose membership has grown from
one hundred to over 3,000 under
the McClendon's stewardship.
"For years my wife has been ask-
ing me for this," remarked Bro.
McClendon before presenting his
bride her gift, "tonight I'm going to
give it to her." One beautifully
wrapped dog was what she saw -
but the real gift was inside a dia-
mond wedding band.
Congratulations to Mr.
and Mrs. McClendon on
their 50th Anniversary.

African-Americans Expected to Lead the Way on Election Day


Continued from front
"We're seeing that voting is
becoming a family affair, a commu-
nity affair all over this country,"
says Melanie Campbell, executive
director of the National Coalition
for Black Civic Participation. "We
want the people to enjoy the
process of making history."
Campbell says while a 60 percent
turnout has been considered good in
the past, this year, a record-break-
ing 70 to 80 percent is expected in
some communities. "And African-
Americans are going to be leading
the way," she said. "People feel like
they are a part of the process. This
is part of the definition of what a
movement is. People are taking
their neighbors to go vote. This
movement for a change is also a
change in removing apathy and
we'll have to build on that."
In the close race, election offi-
cials are also hopeful that few
glitches will occur.
"We really are confident that this
is going to be a good election," says


Donetta Davidson, vice chair of the
Federal Election Assistance
Commission. "The election com-
munity has really been working
very hard, and the election officials,
to make sure that this election runs
as smoothly as possible," Davidson
says. "Will there be a hick up some
place? Possibly. That's because
there's a human factor in program-
ming this equipment and testing it.
Testing is the valuable point. If they
do their testing right, they will catch
any kind of program they have
before Election Day."
Volunteer poll workers are still
badly needed, says Davidson.
"Equipment is only half of it. The
process is really what insures that
everything is going to run smoothly,
training the poll workers," she said.
"In some areas they do not have
enough poll workers yet... They
need even emergency poll workers
the morning of election to ship
them out to a polling place where
somebody got sick or called in and
said 'I'm not going to be there.'"


Davidson said a total of two mil-
lion poll workers are needed
"because of the size of this election,
the hype of it and the number of
people who have registered... A lot
of the states and jurisdictions are
still looking."
Activists who have already
observed long lines say voters must
also take certain precautions on
their own Nov. 5.
"On election day, the biggest
thing that you get prepared for that
length of time and celebrate it,"
says Campbell. "If you don't have
the ability to take a lot of time off
from work, make sure you vote
first," she said, echoing a new
VOTE FIRST campaign enacted by
her NCBCP, the National Urban
League and the Black Leadership
Forum. "And then when you go,
make sure you have your ID in case
you have any kind of problems.
Even when you don't think you
need it, take it anyway."
Campbell added that everyone
should make sure they have the


Over 70,000 have taken advan-
tage of early voting in Duval
County so far.
right polling place. And finally, "If
you know you're registered to vote,
do not leave that polling place with-
out voting."
For problems encountered at the
polls, Campbell says to call 1-866-
OurVote, an election protection hot-
line that will staff lawyers and other
volunteers on Election Day.
Davidson says she has one con-
cluding message to voters for
Tuesday: "Knowledge is power. If
they know what their rights are.
Then they have far more power."

Speed Up Your Metabolism


Part 1
You probably don't need a rocket
scientist to explain to you why you
are having a difficult time losing
weight. Your metabolism slows
with age. The average woman gains
1 1/2 pounds a year during her adult
life enough to pack on 40-plus
pounds by her 50s, if she doesn't
combat the roller coaster of hor-
mones, muscle loss, and stress that
conspires to slow her fat-burning
engine. But midlife weight gain
isn't inevitable: We've found an
exercise and diet plan that will
tackle these changes.
This customizable metabolism-
boosting workout will help you
shed up to 8 pounds in just 4 weeks.
Most important, you'll build firm,
lean muscle tissue, the key to a
robust metabolism. But that's just
the beginning. Start today and
you'll sleep better, have more ener-
gy, feel firmer, and notice your
clothes are looser in as little as 2
weeks. Here's how:
EAT ENOUGH
You need to cut calories to lose
weight. But going too low delivers
a double whammy to your metabo-
lism. When you eat less than you
need for basic biological function
(about 1,200 calories for most
women), your body throws the
brakes on your metabolism. It also
begins to break down precious,
calorie-burning muscle tissue for
energy. Eat just enough so you're
not hungry--a 150-calorie snack
midmorning and midafternoon
between three meals (about 430
calories each) will keep your
metabolism humming.
REV UP IN THE MORNING
Eating breakfast jump-starts
metabolism and keeps energy high
all day. It's no accident that women
who skip this meal are 4 1/2 times
as likely to be obese. If nothing
else, grab a yogurt. Or try oatmeal
made with fat-free milk and topped
with nuts for an essential protein


I 1A I L


boost.
DRINK COFFEE OR TEA
Caffeine is a central nervous sys-
tem stimulant, so your daily java
jolts can rev your metabolism 5 to
8%--about 98 to 174 calories a day.
A cup of brewed tea can raise your
metabolism by 12%, according to
one Japanese study. Researchers
believe the antioxidant catechins in
tea provide the boost.
FIGHT FAT WITH FIBER
Research shows that some fiber
can rev your fat burn by as much as
30%. Studies find that women who
eat the most fiber gain the least
weight over time. Aim for about 25
g a day--the amount in about three
servings each of fruits and vegeta-
bles.

The Davis family: Kelly. Michae.1, Abner EWC alumni Dad Kenneth
Davis came out to see EWC band play.
Due to budget cuts and educational changes, the spirit may have been
taken out of the curriculum at area schools, however, it hasn't taken the
spirit out of the students. The southern tradition of Friday night football
remains strong in Jacksonville as exhibited by last week's match up
between Lee High School and First Coast High School. Students, fans,
parents and athletes attended the game for the sports camaraderie and big
band match up. A highlight of the game was a performance by the EWC
Marching Tigers who attended to recruit new members.

LaBelle Brinas Music "Back to Now"|


The musical group LaBelle, the
avant-garde female trio that melded
disco with funk and glam rock,
smashed on the urban and pop
scene early '60s and '70s, but the
era of the group never actually
ended.
So calling their first album since
1976 a comeback is a little out of
sorts. The group, made up of Patti
LaBelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah
Dash, never said goodbye.
"We're back together after all
these years. It's been 30-something
years since we parted," LaBelle
said. "The album is called 'Back to
Now'. We're doing some of the
back and some of the now and some
of the in between."
"In a way, there was a sense of
unfinished business with our fans,"
Hendryx added of their parting.
"We left without saying goodbye,"
LaBelle said.
"Back to Now" dropped on
October 21 and "picks up right
where their 1976 "Chameleon" left
off," according to Amazon.com,
with the trio's brand of unprece-
dented rock-soul-funk. The group's
style is one that could never be cat-
egorized, and now the three women
have made their mark yet again.
"What sets us aside is that we have
made a mark in the industry, com-


ing back with original members of a
group after 30 years," Dash assert-
ed. "I don't think there has been any
other female group in the industry
that has done what we're doing. We
are being innovative in the sense
that you can come back and do
music together in spite of the time
that has passed. That really sets us
aside and we're giving another
message to the industry: There


should be no age or time put on or
limits put on what you can do. If
you can do it, you can do it."
Dash considered the new disc an
opportunity to do what no other
black groups have done.
Comparing their return with the
likes of The Police, the Rolling
Stones, and Genesis, she explained
that no other R&B group had come
back together with all the original

EL DEBARGE ARRESTED AGAIN: Singer taken in for pos-
session of a controlled substance.
SEl DeBarge, the former lead singer of his family
group DeBarge, is back in jail without bail due to
two outstanding warrants at the time of his arrest
earlier this month for possession of a controlled sub-
._ stance.
According to TMZ.com, the singer, born Patrick
Eldra DeBarge, was arrested last year on charges
including vandalism, drugs and domestic violence.
S. He's due back in court today, the Web site reported.
El DeBarge is the fifth of eight brothers and sixth of ten DeBarge fami-
ly members. He formed the singing group, DeBarge, in 1978 with his sib-
lings Mark, Randy, James and Bunny.
JILL MARIE JONES BOOKS COMEDY ROLE:
'Girlfriends' vet cast in Nancy Kissam's 'Drool.'
Jill Marie Jones, best known for her run as Toni Childs on the TV com-
edy "Girlfriends," has been cast in writer-director Nancy Kissam's dark
comedy "Drool," according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The film stars Laura Harring as an abused wife whose plan to escape with
a friend, played by Jones, goes awry when she accidentally kills her hus-
band (Oded Fehr), leading the pair to drive the body cross-country.
"Drool" was the winner of the 2006 Slamdance screenplay competition.
TERRENCE HOWARD SUED FOR ASSAULT
When it rains, it pours for Terrence Howard. One week after learning
through the trades that his "Iron Man 2" role was given to Don Cheadle,
the Oscar-nominated actor has been sued for alleged assault.
Composer Andrew "Tex" Allen claims he was beaten up by Howard last
winter while working together in Broadway's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,
reports the New York Post.
The jazz pianist and brother of "Tin Roof' director, Debbie Allen, seeks
$5 million in damages, according to the lawsuit.
He claims Howard stepped to him on Jan. 24 at about 2:30 p.m. as he
was sitting at the piano inside of Walter Kerr Theatre.
He said Howard punched him repeatedly in the face and head. The law-
suit does not state the reason for the alleged confrontation.


Duke lacrosse accuser

pens memoir about case


The woman
who prosecutors
determined false-
ly accused three
Duke lacrosse
players of rape
maintains in a
new memoir that
Magnum she was attacked, a
claim that provoked an angry law-
suit threat from one player's family.
Crystal Mangum, who appeared
publicly Thursday for the first time
since making the allegations more
than two years ago, says in her
book being made available online
Friday that she is not "looking for-
ward to opening old wounds" but
that she had to defend herself.
"Even as I try to move on with my
life, I still find it necessary to take
one more stand and fight," she
writes in an excerpt of the book,
"The Last Dance for Grace: The
Crystal Mangum Story."
"I want to assert, without equivo-
cation, that I was assaulted. Make
of that what you will. You will
decide what that means to you
because the state of North Carolina
saw fit not to look at all that hap-
pened the night I became infa-
mous."
Mangum's remarks drew an imme-
diate rebuke from attorneys, and the
family of one exonerated player
said they were considering a law-


suit. Jim Cooney, who represented
player Reade Seligmann in the
criminal case, said attorneys would
review the contents of the book.
"For 2 1/2 years, this woman has
attempted to destroy Reade's life,"
Cooney said. "We aim to put a stop
to it."
Mangum told police that she was
attacked at a March 2006 lacrosse
team party where she was hired to
perform as a stripper. After a disas-
trous local prosecution that eventu-
ally led to downfall of the district
attorney, the state attorney general's
office concluded there was no cred-
ible evidence an attack ever
occurred.

Hometown Author Rashida Taylor

Signs Books and Celebrates Birthday
Rashidah Taylor (pictured w/ Recording Artist Pretty Willie) shared her
story during an official Celebrity Book-Signing and Birthday Celebration
last weekend at the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Taylor says the book, 'My
Love Walk Over The Dead Roses' is not about pointing the finger at any-
one, but it's a story of forgiveness and finding yourself. Among those
attending her book signing celebration include Prophet Brian Cam and for-
mer Project Runway Designer Mychael Knight. As a professional model,
motivational speaker, and former wife of NFL star Travis Taylor, Taylor
tells about the other side of the "Dream Life" that the cameras never cap-
ture. "They don't see all the tears, and the searching to find out why all the
wealth and riches you have, can't make you happy. It's a void I found only
God can fulfill." Photo: Joseph Reaves

members.
"That again makes us a unique
group of women," she said. "It's
great that we have been able to con-
tinue doing what we are doing,"
Dash said, "doing music as what we
do as a living, but as what we enjoy
doing and being able to be creative
and have longevity which is not so
evident today with a lot of artists."
Although known for their mega-
hits "Lady Marmalade" and
"Groovy Kind of Love" the group's
repertoire has always spoken to the
social issues of the times. Their
acclaimed albums have held tracks
that challenged racism and sexism.
And the political tones on the new
disc are actually nothing new. The
group explained to EUR's Lee
Bailey that some of the songs are
extremely appropriate in regard to
the current political climate, though
unintended.
"The music that we did then was
political and now it wasn't inten-
tional but we have four songs that
are very political," LaBelle said.
"We're almost at the place we were
years ago. When you hear some of
the song, you'll thing that we wrote
them purposely to go along with
what happenings now. So it's back
and it's now. It's very timely."
