Johnnie Young, 25, had
been admitted to a detoxi-
fication facility and his
family and mother of his
two children were not told
that he had left, not

he had been admitted to
the facility because he
had exhibited depression
and other symptoms.
According to reports,
Young went to the home
of his children's mother,
found her sleeping in the

was observed, the door
was broken down and
they were able to enter.
Inside the closet, Young
was found in the bath-
room on top of his
daughter, Breosha, with
his hands wrapped tight-
ly around her chest. It
was a struggle but the
paramedics were able to
release the two-year old.
Young is charged with
arson and domestic bat-
tery. Breosha is still at
Shands in critical condi-
tion. She suffered from
smoke inhalation. The

In his address celebrating the 12th
anniversary of the Million Man
March, Nation of Islam leader
Farrakhan said that as the earth with-
ers, so too do black men, who have
little to show for 452 years of
bondage. The minister said "Politics
and the racial environment is threat-
ening the human family." "But black
males, in particular, are endangered.
Our attitudes, our ignorance, our sav-
agery are all lending to a plan -- a
conspiracy to make the black man,
not endangered, but extinct. --If God
doesn't intervene, we will be

many survivors for both.
Some referred to it as a "power struggle" when former
superintendent Wise set to make certain changes in the
Duval County School System. He also accused board mem-
ber Brenda Priestly-Jackson of misconduct and asked for her
resignation. After that move and many saying that "Wise is
not wise," he agreed to resign and the board agreed to pay
him $275K and $160K for Chief of Staff.
Regarding the claims made against Mrs. Priestly-Jackson,
Sthe city attorney cleared her on two of the three claims, On
the third allegation regarding her residence, the attorney said
it appears that that too is not a problem and should be
cleared some time next week.

Childhood Obesity A Growing Epidemic
Child Watch@ Column
By Marian Wright Edelma, President of the Children's Defense Fund
MAY E. FORD
BETTY ASQUE DAVIS
Children around the world
face life-threatening nutrition
problems. The international
child relief organization, Save
the Children, says that each
year, chronic long-term mal-
nutrition contributes to the
deaths of approximately 6.5
million children worldwide.
These are children who just
don't get enough to eat from
day to day. Hunger is a major
concern in America as well,
though less severe and wide-
spread than we find. in some
Yet other children in our rich
nation face quite a different
nutrition problem, one that
imperils the health of millions:
our national epidemic of child-
The obesity epidemic is
getting worse in the United
States, where we consume
high-fat, high-sugar, high-
calorie diets and live increas-
ingly sedentary lifestyles.
Over the past two decades, the
prevalence of overweight chil-
dren in our nation between
ages 6 and 11 has doubled, and
among teenagers it has tripled.
The annual National Health
and Nutrition Examination
Survey conducted by the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention found that
about one-third of all
American children 25 mil-
lion are overweight or near-
CLARA FRANCES McLAUGHLIN
Unlike adults, children
need extra nutrients and calo-
ries to fuel their development.
But they are at risk of becom-
ing obese when their caloric
intake is out of balance, that is,
when it exceeds what they
need to sustain their daily
activities, their growth and
Childhood obesity is a
serious health crisis.
Physicians now find them-
selves diagnosing early hyper-
tension and full-blown high
blood pressure among chil-
dren and adolescents stem-
ming from excessive weight
gain. These conditions can
lead to type 2 diabetes and
heart disease caused by high
blood pressure and/or high
cholesterol. Until recently,
these were ailments common
only among middle-aged and
The answer is not to blame
the children. In fact, over-
weight children are often
teased and bullied. When this
happens, when they are reject-
ed by their peers, or ridiculed
by teachers or parents, it only
lowers their self-esteem and
can make them vulnerable to
dangerous eating disorders
such as anorexia nervosa and

causes of obesity is not rocket
science. Most of the factors

rather than asking to go out
and play, are sitting on their
bottoms watching television,

of milk is more continuous for

bles over the processed or con-
venience foods that are high in
fat, sugar and salt. For many
inner-city residents without
transportation or convenient
supermarkets, this can be a
tough challenge. Parents can
also cut back on sugar and
white carbohydrates like rice,
pasta and bread made from
bleached flour. Low-fat food
preparation is important and
I've struggled to eat chicken
baked instead of fried (except
once in a while!). And the size
of portions should be limited.
Other simple dos and don't
are making healthy snacks like
apples and carrot sticks avail-
able. Don't keep soft drinks in
the refrigerator. Cut back on
the number of times you eat
out and have more sit-down
meals as a family.
Parents also have the
power to limit the amount of
time their children-spend in
front of a TV screen or com-
puter monitor. Don't put a tele-
vision set in a child's bedroom.
Instead, find new ways for
your child to keep physically
active. Activity not only bums
calories and keeps a child's
weight down but also builds
strong bones and muscles and
helps children sleep better at
night. Be creative. Make phys-
ical activity a family affair.
Childhood obesity is a seri-
ous national problem, but it is
one all of us can attack. Arm
yourself with the facts and take
action. For most of us what is
required is doable with man-

First Coast Native Receives
Very Special Honors
If you were headed west on I-10 a few weeks ago you
may have noticed a bevy of cars headed west also. They
were family members traveling to Chandler, Arizona for a
very BIG occasion honoring their loved one President
SArnette Scott Ward.
President Ward has always been highly regarded in her
hometown of Jacksonville, FL. Following a fantastic and
Illustrious career in the field of education she returned
recently to Arizona where her extensively magnificent
- career roots are and was superbly honored for her contribu-
tions to the tremendous growth of Chandler-Gilbert
SCommunity College of Chandler, Arizona. When President
Ward became provost there were 600 students and a budget
of $600,000. Since then the student body has grown to
15,000 with a budget over $19 million. When she began in
1985 she made her expectations clear to the faculty.
President Ward stated, "I want only your best.' I need you
to teach them like you're teaching a Harvard student, but
with tender, loving care. You've got to love my students. If
you can do that, I'll fight for anything you need." Under
her leadership the school that began as "the little pink col-
lege in the middle of the field developed into a thriving
institution of higher learning providing access to a college
education for thousands of students on an annual basis.
Being the very modest person we all know her as being,
President Ward gives credit to the support of community
leaders and the help of people who believed. However, she
was regarded by others, appropriately so, as a phenomenal
woman. To honor her, the Maricopa Community College
Board of Trustees unanimously approved renaming the
Chandler-Gilbert Performing Arts Center to the Arnett
Scott Ward Performing Arts Center.
President Ward, as the Gilbert Republic columnist
Doug Carroll writes, "Arnett Ward had a memorable first
encounter with Chandler-Gilbert Community College in
1985. "I couldn't find the place", recalled Ward, who had
been appointed as the school's first provost.... "It was
nothing but farmland. I saw cotton in Arizona for the first

T.I. Still in Jail; Girlfriend "Tiny"
Cottles Reportedly Pregnant
Superstar hip-hop artist, T.I. (Clifford Joseph Harris,
Jr.) is still in jail after being arrested over the weekend
for attempting to take possession of unregistered
machine guns and silencers. He was taken into custody
shortly before he was to perform at the BET Hip-hop
awards in his hometown of Atlanta Saturday night.
A federal grand jury indicted T.I. on three federal gun
charges on October 17.
.T.I. is a convicted felon which may make the penal-
ties for his actions more severe. His indictment charges
him with possessing unregistered machine guns and
silencers; unlawfully possessing machine guns; and of
being a convicted felon in possession of firearms. T.I.
allegedly had one of'his bodyguards attempt to purchase
guns and silencers. It is a violation of federal law for a
convicted felon to have another person purchase or
acquire firearms on their behalf.
His longtime girlfriend, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle from
the 1990's girl group Xscape was also arrested along-
side T.I. for possession of marijuana and the popular
club drug ecstasy. She was released the same evening on
her own recognizance. There have been reports that she
;is pregnant with the couple's third child. They have a son
together named Clifford aka 'King' and'were expecting a
daughter (Llayah Amour) to be born in June who died at
stillbirth late night on March 21, 2007. Tiny also has
another daughter Zonnique that T.I. claims. He has three
other children: Messiah Harris (son), Domani Harris
(son), and Deyjah Harris (daughter).
At the time he was being arrested, ATF agents were
searching his home and found six guns, some of them
loaded. All of T.I.'s children were all home at the time of
According to photographer Clifford Harris Jr. could
be released on Friday on house arrest while his impend-
ing charges are investigated. He was denied bond and is
set to appear in court the same for the weapons charges.
He was scheduled to appear at a Fayettville State
University homecoming concert this week but has been
replaced by Young Jeezy.
T.I. currently has a role alongside Denzel Washington
in the movie American Gangster. The movie premieres
"His defense team includes more high-profile lawyers
Ed Garland and Don Samuel, whose past clients include
NFL star Ray Lewis and millionaire investor James
Sullivan. T.I. is also the executive producer as well as the

politics and the perception that some successful blacks are being propped up by
non-blacks and are refusing to help other blacks because they feel such assistance
may cause them to lose their status. The minister said we must find a better way of
addressing the problems of our people.
Minister Farrakhan said that 37 million people are living in poverty and one-third
of that number are black. He further stated that blacks are going to prison four times
the rate that blacks did in South Africa during apartheid. He also said that 340,000
blacks are homeless in America on any given night.
The anniversary was attended by many, including Rev. Dr. Charles Steele, presi-
dent of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference who told the audience that
the Nation of Islam leader, Farrakhan, inspired him.
RAID Continued from A-1
Five days later, the Narcotics Enforcement Team conducted a search warrant in
the 2400 block of Blain Street where they recovered an AK47 assault rifle, a .40
caliber pistol and a 9mm pistol. Domonick Harrison, 30, was arrested and charged
with theft by receiving stolen property.
Brunswick has vowed that they will not tolerate drugs, gangs and murders. Sgt.
Murray said the gun bounty program is working for their city and they are still
searching for an AKM-47 assault rifle that was removed from a storage facility late
August. He said that criminals covet AK-47s for their firing power and violent
prestige in the streets. So far, they have recovered 7 weapons through the Gun
Bounty Program and paid out about $3,000 for information from various sources
that has assisted in the recoveries. The officers said that raids, traffic stops and the
Gun Bounty Program has been a great help to them in removing guns from the

Crack cocaine guideline amendment
would improve sentences for 19,500
people if made retroactive
The U.S. Sentencing Commission released its report on the estimated impact of the retroac-
tive application of the so-called "crack minus two" guideline amendment it sent to Congress
last May. The figures are significant and provide new hope that nearly 20,000 prisoners
serving sentences for crack cocaine offenses could see their sentences reduced by an aver-
age of more than two years.
Among the findings:
Number of crack prisoners eligible to benefit from the amendment: 19,500
Average sentence reductions of all eligible prisoners: 27 months
4,776 prisoners would receive reductions of 12 months or less
5,829 prisoners would receive reductions of between 13 and 24 -months
3,112 prisoners would receive reductions of between 25 and 36 months
1,644 prisoners would receive reductions of between 37 and 48 months
1,315 prisoners would receive sentence reductions of 49 months or more
Increase in number of prisoners released due to the retroactive application in the first year
by retroactivity: 2,520 The crack cocaine amendment is not yet retroactive. The
Sentencing Commission will vote sometime this fall on whether to make the amendment
Quick review of 2007 crack amendment
On May 1, 2007, the Sentencing Commission sent to Congress a guideline amendment
that proposed-to reduce crack cocaine sentences by lowering base offense levels for all
crack cocaine convictions by two levels. For instance, drug quantities that formerly trig-
gered a level 34 guideline range (151-188 months), would instead trigger a level 32 guide-
line range (Q21-151 months). Congress has six months to reject the amendment and if it
takes no action the amendment will automatically become effective on November 1, 2007.
We anticipate that the amendment will become effective this November without opposition.
FAMM led an effort to support the crack cocaine guideline change when it was proposed
in April 2007. We understood that it represented the first in what we hope will be a num-
ber of steps to lower crack sentences and the first real relief for crack defendants since the
Commission's failed attempt in 1995 to treat crack the same as powder cocaine.
As proposed, the crack guideline would apply only to people sentenced after it becomes
effective on November 1. And so, since May, FAMM has waged a vigorous campaign to
persuade the Sentencing Commission to make the new crack guideline retroactive so it
could benefit eligible crack prisoners. Fairness dictates the changes apply to prisoners serv-
ing the unjust crack cocaine sentences that prompted the Commission to act.
The Commission has already heard from thousands of individuals, asking that the amend-
ment be made retroactive. If you have not told the Commission how you feel, it is not too
late to ensure your views are heard. The Commission is seeking public comment until
November 1. Visit http://capwiz.com/famm/home/ on the FAMM website to insure that all
crack defendants benefit from this promising first step toward sentencing fairness.
What is FAMM?
Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM) is the national voice for fair and pro-
portionate sentencing laws. We shine a light on the human face of sentencing, advocate
for state and-federal sentencing reform, and mobilize thousands of individuals and fami-
lies whose lives are adversely affected by unjust sentences. To join FAMM, please

Children lack suitable

Mistress of Ceremony, Judy Washington, began
this wonderful and rare ceremony introducing
Retiree Yvonne Brooks, her family and special

that you witness too often. But, Yvonne Brooks
knew that she had landed the perfect position
with BlueCross/BlueShield when she first started working there. And, now that 37 long years have passed, Yvonne is
ready to see what life is after retirement and she deserves the best that it has to give.
The Prayer was presented by Director Karl Smith, and throughout the ceremony there was well planned entertain-

My nephew has left for college and has completely lost his
mind. When he lived at home he was quiet, mild mannered and
well behaved. I hardly know him now that he's away from
home. He's still underage but he drinks, has tattoos and has
become loud and rude. My sister simply turns her head and
says he's an adult and I should mind my business. Is this nor-
mal when kids go off to college or should I intervene and get him back on track?
Loving Aunt (San Bernardino, CA)
You may be messing in business that doesn't belong to you. Your nephew is an adult and his
parents don't have any issues with his lifestyle and maybe you should do the same. If he's
still in college, getting good grades and staying. out of trouble, then he's fine. You can't
impose your expectations on him but you can caution him about the drinking and any moral
issues. In other words, accept his newfound adult hood and be there with gentle guidance.
I have a platonic relationship with a male friend of four years but my fiance doesn't like it.
He has begun making hints that I've slept with my friend and accusing me of lying to him.
I've only known my fiance for two years and if I had to choose between the two men, I
would choose my friend. How can I convince my fiance that we're only friends and that
nothing is going on? This is becoming stressful because I love both men and want them in
my life. Help?
Sharon (San Antonio, TX)
Your future husband is jealous of your relationship with your male friend. It's your respon-
sibility to find balance as you seek to have both relationships. Invite your husband to be part
of the friendship so he can understand and be more open minded. Also be mindful of your
platonic friendship to make sure you're not giving your fiance reasons to complain. If things
don't improve after the air is clear, you fiance has issues you certainly need to explore.
I met a guy that I thought was really interested in me. I helped him get employment at my
company, helped with his bills and paid child support for him. As soon as things started look-
ing up for him, our relationship changed. Things hit the fan when he got a promotion and
moved into another department. He is now telling me that he's focused on improving his life
instead of dating me. I heard that he's dating someone else in the company. What do I do?
Crying and Miserable (On-Line Reader)
You set yourself up by confusing help with being used and also giving up your money. You
never should mix business with pleasure because it's a guaranteed recipe for pain. He used
you to get ahead and you can see early on that he's leaving you behind. If you heard that he's
dating someone on the job, it's probably true. You can't do anything other than move on, be
glad that you got out early and pray for the new lady who will be his next sucker.

Diagnosing and Treating Ectopic Pregnancy
By Kenneth L. Noller, MD
The American College of
i, f i About one out of
\, every 50 preg-
nancies are ectopic
',*m (sometimes called
tubal) in the US,
and it is the leading cause of pregnancy-
related death during the first three months
Ectopic pregnancy occurs when a
fertilized egg implants itself in a woman's
fallopian tube, or elsewhere in the
abdomen, instead of the uterus. Because
it takes place outside the uterus, the
pregnancy will not progress as it would
naturally and must be removed.
The No. 1 risk factor for an ectopic
pregnancy is a prior case of pelvic
inflammatory disease, especially when
caused by a current or previous chlamydia
infection. Other risk factors include prior
ectopic pregnancy or tubal surgery,
Cigarette smoking, a woman's exposure to
diethylstilbestrol, past infertility, and
You may feel the effects of an ectopic
pregnancy before you know that you are
pregnant. If you are sexually active and of
childbearing age, call your doctor if you
experience abnormal vaginal bleeding (not
related to a menstrual period) or sudden
or sharp abdominal or pelvic pain that
aches without relief or that seems to come
and go. If your fallopian tube bursts, blood
may build up in the abdomen, causing
pain in the shoulder or weakness,
dizziness, or fainting from blood log.
To diagnose an ectopic pregnancy, your
doctor may perform a pelvic exam or an
ultrasound, give you a blood test to detect
pregnancy hormones, or take your blood
pressure (low blood pressure may be a
sign of internal bleeding).
If an ectopic pregnancy is caught early
enough, you and your doctor may be able
to choose a treatment that will save the
affected tube before it bursts and possibly
preserve your future fertility.
You may be given the drug methotrexate,
which will stop the pregnancy and allow
the body to absorb it over time. Small
ectopic pregnancies also can be removed
surgically. During surgery, your doctor can
check for and treat any internal bleeding.
Your doctor may be able to repair a
fallopian tube that has not been too
extensively damaged, providing a good
chance that you will be able to have a
healthy pregnancy later.
If the fallopian tube ruptures, however, it is
an emergency. You may be bleeding
heavily, and immediate surgery to remove
the affected tube will be necessary.
Women who have had an ectopic
pregnancy should allow time for both
physical and emotional healing.
Counseling may help you and your partner
in the grieving process. Ask your doctor to
assist you in finding appropriate
counselors or support groups.

No Future With Out Forgiveness: A 12-Step Process by
Dr Michael Byrd, Ph.D., Authorhouse, 2004, 108 pages
Dr. Byrd sent me a copy of his book about six months "Awi. w .VI
ago, and it is the most profound accounting of purpose in a 12-step process on for-
giveness. This little book of 108 pages captured my mind with association and rev-
Dr. Michael Byrd, a formidable man, holds a Ph.D. in theocentric psycholo-
gy, a master's in religious education, a bachelor of arts in physical education. For
many years he has held certifications in challenge course facilitation, and is state
board certified as an alcohol and drug abuse counselor. Dr. Byrd is further a board
certified belief therapist counselor, a member of the American Society of Christian
Therapists, a certified marriage and family therapist and is licensed as an addiction
counselor in belief therapy.
His book "No Future With Out Forgiveness" is compelling. It is designed to
help set people free from past hurts and the "unforgivens" that trap in self-defeat-
ing behaviors. Without acknowledging and forgiving, you cannot move on to reach
your righteous potential.
More and more people are "stuck" in senseless, inane, ridiculous, ludicrous,
illogical, scatterbrained, narrow-minded craziness that lasts from 10 years to a life-
time. So, they wallow in "quicksand," not knowing that all that is needed is a 12-
step walk toward forgiveness. For close to 30 years, Dr. Byrd has primarily coun-
seled in the public school setting, church ministry and outreach. As a guest on my
show, he reiterated that however painful our experiences in life are, they are a
reflection of something we need to know about. There is a purpose behind the
madness, drama and "Goliath" pain that disturb the peace in our mind and body.
I asked, "What are the medical benefits of forgiveness?" It is well document-
ed that some cases of physical illnesses will not heal, not from lack of the proper
medicines but because of the locks on the mind, will and the attitude of bitterness.
Unresolved hurts are the making of the "twilight zone" for anger management later
in life. So many of our young are mentally impaired and unable to give up their
resentments; thus, are sentenced to a life of managing the malice and coping with
exonerating themselves. Exoneration and self-examination ultimately lead to a
more successful life, vs. the violence that is becoming more violent, and self-sab-
otage we are all too familiar with. The book is well done, and I hope he will enter-
tain a sequel.
You are invited to contact Dr. Michael Byrd at
Pastor_Mike@LivingWordofGod.net, or 817-431-1738. He has traveled across
the state of Texas as a lecturer and conference speaker on many topics in his book.
Dr. Byrd loves people, and because he himself has experienced the life-chang-
ing power of God, he wants others to know and experience the same positive
impact in their own lives. After all, forgiveness is a recipe for peace and calm in
your heart and mind. So, go for it! Let it go! Kiss and make up! Live long. Be
happy. Be better, not bitter.

Five Questions and Answers about Public Notices -
Public notices published in newspapers provide citizens a window into gov-
ernment. Most of the information for the following questions and answers comes
from the booklet "Public Notice: An American Tradition, An Examination of the
Role of Newspapers in Public Notice," published by the Public Notice Resource
Center and American Court & Commercial Newspapers.
1) What is a public notice?
A public notice' is information informing citizens of government or govern-
ment-related activities that affect citizens' everyday lives. *
2) Why do we need public notices?
An important premise found in both federal and local governments is that
information about government activities must be accessible in order for the elec-
torate to make well-informed decisions. Public notices in newspapers provide
this sort of accessibility to citizens who want to know more about government
3) What is the history of public notices?
The history of public notice begins long before the emergence of newspa-
pers. The concept has existed since early civilizations posted notices in public
squares. This crude method was eventually refined with the publication of the
first publication of the first English language newspaper in 1665 a court news-
paper called The Oxford Gazette.
In America, the Acts of the First Session of the First Congress in 1789
required that all bills, orders, resolutions and congressional votes be published
in at least three publicly available newspapers.
Upholding the public's right to know has been essential to our country's way
of life since day one. Our government governs with the consent of people, and
this consent must be informed.
4) What are some examples of a public notices?
There are many kinds of public notices. Publication of proposed budgets for
local governments, notices of local government hearings, bid notices, board and
agency meeting minutes and pre-election notices are just a few examples.
5) Are newspapers the most effective vehicle for public notices?
Public notices published in newspapers ensures readership by those most
likely to be interested in or affected by the notices. Plus, the notices arrive at
readers' homes or places of work in a newspaper filled with local news and infor-
mation that compels readership.
Newspapers are paid to publish public notices, which guarantees that valu-
able newspaper space will be devoted to notifying the public. The system works
the same way in which qualified vendors are paid to provide goods and services
to government entities, such as contractors who build schools and roads or an
office supplies store that wins a bid to sell office supplies to a government
In recent years, some have questioned the need to publish notices in local
newspapers, saying that the Internet has become so widely used that it repre-
sents a better way of informing the public. The Internet can play a role in a bet-
ter informed citizenry, but public notices buried in government Web sites cannot
replace the value delivered by newspapers. The permanence, stability and inde-
pendent verification offered by publication of public notices in newspapers
ensure citizens have access to bonafide, trusted information about the business

deep into Houston territory before the drive ended on a missed
field goal after a personal foul by the Jaguars that took away a
made Camey field goal. The Jaguars next two offensive drives
ended in Reggie Williams fumbles, and despite moving the ball
well on the Houston defense, the Jaguars found themselves down
6-0, halfway through the second quarter.
The Jaguars offense finally broke through with 5:47 left in
the first half, when David Garrard hit tight end George Wrighster
on a one-yard touchdown pass, which was initially ruled as an
offensive pass interference penalty on tight end Greg Estandia,
who blocked a Houston linebacker in the end zone. After a
lengthy deliberation, the officials ruled that since Estandia started
blocking the Houston player on the line of scrimmage, there was
no penalty and the touchdown stood. That appeared to be the turn-
ing point in the game as the Jaguars then executed a surprise
onside kick that was recovered by kicker John Carey, which led
to a Jaguars/field goal before the half to give Jacksonville the
Jacksonville took control of the game on their first posses-
sion of the second half, a drive in which the Jaguars went 81 yards
in 14 plays which was capped off by a nine-yard touchdown pass
from David Garrard to Reggie Williams. The Jaguars would then
score touchdowns on their final two possessions before ending
the game in victory formation with a kneel down by Garrard.

Quarterback David Garrard continued his efficient play as he
completed 22 of 34 passes, for 221 yards, two touchdowns and no
interceptions, finishing with a quarterback rating of 102.7.
Garrard's quarterback rating was over 100 for the fourth consec-
utive game, and he has not thrown an interception in five games
this season. Garrard hit nine different receivers including Dennis
Northcutt, who had four catches for 46 yards, Reggie Williams,
who had five catches for 38 yards, and a touchdown, and tight end
Marcedes Lewis, who caught two balls for 30 yards. When asked
about the play of Garrard, head coach Jack Del Rio said-- "David
played again very, very good football. I can't say enough about
the way he's playing. The passing game is coming."
Defensively, the Jaguars were outstanding for the fourth con-
secutive game, as they allowed the Texans just 61 yards on the
ground on 24 carries, despite having to face the Texans star run-
ning back, Ahman Green. The Jaguars defense finished with two
sacks, and forced three turnovers, two fumbles, and an intercep-
tion. The play that sealed the game defensively, came in the
fourth quarter when defensive end Paul Spicer sacked Houston
quarterback Matt Schaub and forced a fumble, which linebacker
Daryl Smith picked up and took back 77 yards for his first career
touchdown. Sammy Knight.led the Jaguars with 12 tackles and a
key forced fumble at the goal line, which kept the Texans from

unit missed a field goal early on, and fumbled a short punt that hit
one of the blockers (Brent Hawkins) in his back. The Jaguars had
no punting game to speak of, as they didn't have to attempt dur-
ing the game.
Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio described the call to go for
the onside kick-- "We talked about playing to win; being in attack
mode. We thought we had a shot to make a play there. 'Joe D'
called for it and I okayed it."
With their fourth consecutive victory, the Jaguars bettered
their record to 4-1, which sets up a battle for first place next
Monday night against the currently, undefeated Super Bowl
Champion Indianapolis Colts for first place in the AFC South.
When asked about next Monday's game with Indianapolis, run-
ning back Maurice Jones-Drew said-- "You've got to deliver the
blow. You don't ever want to accept it. The Colts are playing
great. They still didn't pick me in the draft so I'm still upset about
that. It's going to be a fun game; give everybody a great show."
Flowery Branch Falcons coach Bobby Petrino replaced starting quarterback Joey Harrington with Byron
Leftwich Wednesday in hopes ofjump-starting a reeling team that has lost five of its first six games.
Leftwich will be the starter for the rest of the season, Petrino said, with Sunday's game at New Orleans being
his first for Atlanta.
"Were 1-5 and we just didn't feel good about some of the things we did, particularly after turnovers, so we're
making the change," Petrino said. "Joey took it good. He's a professional. One thing about playing quarterback: A
lot of tines when things aren't going good, all 11 guys on the field play a part into it, but you know in the business
that the quarterback is the one you make a change with."
Harrington, who was demoted to No. 2, was not available for comment after practice. Petrino said he notified
Harington first, then Leftfich; of the decision iat separate meetings Wednesday moving.
Leftwich, who signed with Atlanta as a free agent a month ago after being released by the Jaguars this presea-
son, assumed his new role with the first team at practice.
"It was great, just like old times," Leftwich said. "It was a great feeling to be in there and for those guys to wel-
come me with open arms. Thats the thing that was special about it Those guys welcomed me in and treated me
like they wanted me to be there. Thats a good feeling anytime as a player."
Though Harrington (123-for-195, 1,279 yards, four touchdowns, four interceptions) had not played poorly, he
failedto generate points and consistency with an offense that ranks among the NFL's worst in every category. He
was not helped by pass protection that has allowed 21 sacks and a dormant running game that made Atlanta easy
to defend against
The Falcons have just six offensive touchdowns, one apiece in the past two games, both losses.
How will Leftwich, who throws the ball much harder but might not be as.mobile as Harrington, be different?
"We'll see Sunday," Leftwich said. "m just going to be me. Ill try to lead this team, try to make football plays,
try to score some points and try to help this team win."
Teammates responded positively to the switch.
"You got another experienced quarterback who knows this game who's trying to help our team win," tight end
Alge Crumpler said. "Joey's done a lot of positive things for our team, especially the way he handles himself and
the way he distributes the ball. We're going to look for Byron to give us that spark, and hopefully well get a win out
Added wide receiver Joe Horn: "We have to do our jobs first before Byroii can be successful. Everyone has
to join in and beat the man in front of him. If that doesn't happen, if we drop balls and the line doesn't block, what's
the need to have Byron starting anyway?"
Leftwich replaced Harrington in the fourth quarter of a 20-13 loss at Tennessee two weeks ago and complet-
ed just 2-of-8 passes. He also threw an interception arid badly missed wide receiver Laurent Robinson in the end
zone on a potential game-tying play. His rustiness and unfamiliarity with the offense were obvious.
The fifth-year veteran was elevated to second string following the loss to the Titans. But he sprained his right
ankle in practice last week, missed most of the next two practices and was designated the No. 3 quarterback for
Monday nights 31-10 loss to the New York Giants..
Leftwich's tenure in Jacksonville, which was mainly successful but routinely interrupted by left ankle injuries,
ended unceremoniously after four seasons when the seventh overall pick in the 2003 draft was released at the end
of the exhibition season in favor of David Garrard.
The Falcons' in-season quarterback change comes after nearly five years of relative stability at the position.
Michael Vick started 67 games since being drafted first overall in 2001, and he helped lead Atlanta to the playoffs
Thinking Vick would be the starter this season. the Falcons traded backup Matt Schaub to Houston in March
and signed Harington to'be Vick's backup.
Things radically changed months later when Vick was indicted on federal charges related to dogfighting, for
which he later reached a plea agreement That led to his indefinite suspensionby the NFL and Harrington being ele-
vated to starting status.
It was the third time Harrington, the No, 3 pick in the 2002 draft, had been afforded a starting job, after stints
in Detroit and Miami. Now, its the third time he's lost it

March 21st thru April 19th
The more you try to assert yourself at the
beginning of the week, the more muddled
things get. Try directing your energy toward a
volunteer project, a team endeavor or helping
someone else. And listen up. Much better stuff
comes your way around Wednesday and
Thursday. You look terrific in the spotlight,
though it may have a hard time keeping up
with you! From Friday through the weekend,
couple your natural enthusiasm with thinking
things through, especially when it comes to
expressing yourself. Well-chosen words (with
heart!) find their mark now.
April 20th thru May 20th
Get together with others early in the week,
whether it's gathering input and expertise in a
meeting at work, or seeing friends to laugh and
talk things over. The more you open up, the
better. Wednesday is good for starting some-
thing new, what with the surge of energy
you've got coming. Just have a plan and stick
to it somewhat! The days around Friday are all
about you: You're highly productive in all
areas of life, and if you've got love on your
mind, now's the time to go for it -- you're hot.
On Sunday, though, take a second look at
something or someone.
May.21st thru June 21st
Someone's not saying exactly what they mean
as the week gets going, and that someone
might be you. Instead of hedging, don't be
afraid to let someone know that you don't
know -- yet. You'll probably develop a better
idea around Wednesday and Thursday, perhaps
on the strength of some good advice or even an
unmistakable sign. Moreover, what you say,;
even on the spur of the moment, has deep
meaning. Friday and the weekend are more
about questions than statements. Ask (and
answer) some serious ones first, and things
could get flirty on Sunday.
.. June 22nd thru July 22nd
Your responses are right on target early in the
week. Let your mind and heart both weigh in,
and you'll be golden. (The way you say things
is great, too -- you have a way with words.)
Then, before you get bent out of shape on
Wednesday or Thursday, ask yourself if.you
might just be taking things a little too serious-
ly. A further inquiry might reveal a lot and be
a big relief, too. From Friday through the
weekend, your unique charms are getting
noticed. You're the star at a party, delightful on
a date and generally wonderful (and wonder-
fully unpredictable) in any and all circum-
July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Save the drama as the week gets started.
Instead of engaging in it, try a little more
research to develop a better understanding. A
partner's in the picture around Wednesday and
Thursday, and two heads (or is it hearts?) are
definitely better than one. Introduce a new
idea to the two of you and see what happens.
It's liable to be a great time. Around Friday and
Saturday, you might be in a rebellious mode.
Just consider carefully who or what you're
challenging now -- and why. You're low-key
on Sunday, and a tete-a-tete looks to be very
.. Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
Relationships might need a little breathing
room at the beginning of the week. Instead of
pushing an agenda, step back and see the real
potential. If money's involved, it's very impor-
tant to nail down the details around Wednesday
and Thursday. Yes, it's a. sensitive issue, but if'
you 'don't address it now, there could be trouble
later. Looks like you're ready to branch out
from Friday through the weekend, maybe solo,
or perhaps with a partner in crime. Make a plan
that allows for the random factor that's coming
It 9ooks like something or somebody might
throw you off early this week, but getting too
riled up about it isn't the most appropriate
response. If it's relationship related, there may
be a way to find a compromise, and
Wednesday and Thursday are prime for such
discoveries. You can perceive new levels when
it comes to situations, and you can also locate
common ground now, Gratitude and smooth
sailing are your .reward, and from Friday
through the weekend, your natural grace looks
great. Romance is favored, too.
Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
An element of surprise works in your favor as
the week gets started. Use that impeccable
sense of timing to show just how.jaw-drop-
pingly great you can be. Then, around
Wednesday or Thursday, it may be tempting to
get into a tangle with someone. But what do
you have to gain? It could get way stickier
than you think. Expect some excitement on
Friday or over the weekend. If you want things
to get even more intense (and knowing you,
you do), let your real feelings be known. Be a
little vulnerable -- and be ready for just about
L / Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
You'll need a serious kick-start if you want to
get anything accomplished at the beginning of
the week. Get the blood pumping with exer-
cise and eat right for energy, and you might
just be able to concentrate. When Wednesday
and Thursday come, though, you're on fire --
thinking fast, making the right moves and
wowing anyone and everyone. Fanning the
flames of romance is favored now, too. Duty
of some sort calls this weekend, and if you get
right on it, you might just be surprised by the
pleasure you'll take in getting it done.
I ; Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
If you're going to email someone early in the
week, call instead. Or, better yet, say it face-to-
face. Your personal touch is terrific now, whether
it's work related or personal. Expect some static
around Wednesday or Thursday. Someone or
some' issue may be stressing you out, or your
carefully planned schedule may .get all mucked
up. Just do your best and wait for things,to
smooth out, which should happen around Friday.
Fun and love are highlighted through the week-
end, with your powers of attraction seriously
S- Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
What do you really want -- and what's not
going to cut it? It's heavy stuff for the begin-
ning of the week, but don't get sidetracked
from core values and goals. You'll be in a fine
position to think bigger around Wednesday
and Thursday, when your personal possibili-
ties suddenly .expand exponentially. Keep your
schedule open nowl Something that seems
mundane on Friday or over the weekend has
an odd element, one that demands attention.
And starting Sunday,, that odd element may
have everything to do with love.
Feb 19th thru Mlarch 20th
Your generosity with affection and your hon-,
esty regarding emotions has enormous ripple
effects as the week gets started. Dreams can
come true now, perhaps in particularly unex-
pected ways! Life and love are a bit of a puz-
zle, though, around Wednesday and Thursday,
and you might be missing a key piece. The
person or occurrence you think has the answer
probably doesn't. Look within, and get ready
for things to make a lot more sense starting
Friday.. You can write your own ticket now. So
Where do you want to go?
with the victim Mrs. D that stated she was
married to the suspect Mr. D for 6 years. She
also stated that they have been separated for
the last 2 months. Mrs. D stated that while she
was at work, working on the computer, the
suspect started telling her she was stupid, and
cursing at her. She stated that the suspect con-
tinued to call her names and when she tried to
ignore him, he slapped her on the left side of
her face then fled the business. She said she
didn't know where he was residing at the
time, she also stated he does not have a phone.
Witness HS stated she saw the whole thing
n" ad that he did call Mrs. D stupid, cussed her,
slapped her, then ran away. The officer did not
see any visible injuries on the victim, but will
follow this case up with the state attorney's office.
SHE WAS MINDING HER OWN BUSINESS, DRINKING HER BEER An
officer was dispatched to the 9300 block of Norfolk Blvd in reference to an injured
woman. Upon his arrival, he spoke to the victim, N.R,, who stated she was in the
field south of the listed location. N.R. stated she was with a black male, tall, and in
his 30's. She stated she was "minding my own business drinking my beer" when she
was stabbed in her left eye. She was not able to provide a name, a better physical
description, or the location of the incident. A witness, L.M.G, stated he saw the vic-
tim before she was injured. He
observed her walking into the, .
field mentioned earlier. He stated '
he saw a man called A.E. across
from the field that appeared to be ?
upset. L.M.G. said, "he was curs-
ing and yelling, see bit, see bit .
this is what you get for running .. ,.
away with my dope and my
money" and "this will teach you a
lesson for running off with some-
one else sh ." The witness, .
L.M.G. also said he saw the sus-
pect, A.E. running away from the
scene when the police was called.
The victim was in a great deal of pain so the officer requested an Evidence
Technician and' one was assigned by dispatch. The case was not cleared. The police
will follow up.
SHE TRIED TO GO POSTAL An officer was dispatched to the 4400 block of
Moncrief Rd. in reference to an assault call. Upon his arrival, he met with the vic-
tim Ms. ELS, who works at the center at this location. She stated that the suspect
Ms. TCM, who was recently fired front the job, assaulted her. She said between 9
a.m. and 9:15 a.m. the suspect entered the building and approached her as she was
walking out of the office. According to the victim, the suspect accused her of being
the person who caused her to
I lose her job. The victim stated
that the suspect angrily grabbed
her face and would not let her
go. According to the victim, she
defended herself by pushing the
suspect away from her. The vic-
tim stated that the suspect sat in
her vehicle in the parking lot for
about ten minutes prior to leav-
ing the scene. The officer
observed a small scratch on the
.'- victim's lower left jaw only. The
victim was issued a state attor-
.. ney's card and was advised how
to file charges against Ms. TCM.
From Actual Police Reports
Did You Hear About?,..
I WANT MY MONEY An officer was dis-
patched to the 700 block of South Chaffee Rd. in
reference to a fight at a restaurant. Upon his arrival
he spoke with Mr. B, the victim, who is the man-
ager at the restaurant and Mr. G, the suspect, who
is an employee of the restaurant. On 9-29-07, Mr. K g.. .
G, the suspect, arrived at the restaurant demanding
that Mr. Bryant, the victim, give him his pay
check. On a previous check, the business shorted
him some money and he is waiting on the business
to pay him. When the victim told him that he
would have to wait until October to receive his
check, he became enraged. He began to yell, curse,
and point his finger in the victim's face. The vic-
tim, Mr. B, stated that he was so close that he was
spitting on him as he was yelling and he could smell alcohol on his breath. He
advised that he pushed Mr. G's hand away from his face several times, told him to
just leave the property, however, Mr. G refused and continued to yell. Mr. G then
pushed Mr. B again and he then held Mr. G against the side of the business until sev-
eral unknown customers grabbed Mr. G and told him to leave. Mr. G then fled the
area. Mr. B did not sustain any injuries in this fight. Ms. G. stated that she was talk-
ing to Mr. B when Mr. G approached them. She advised that Mr. B was cursing,
yelling and demanding his money. When Mr. B told him about getting it next month
she stated that he then grabbed Mr. B by the throat. She said the suspect fled in an
unknown direction. The officer was unable to locate Mr. G; the suspect.
HE CALLED ME STUPID An officer was"dispatched to the 11000 block of
Beach Blvd. in reference to a battery that had just occurred. Upon his arrival, he met

Tasha Smith Is Sassy On Screen, For Real In Life
By Rych McCain,:
Photos 02007 by Bobby
Quillard/ www.quillardinc. com
She is currently being
seen in her second Tyler
Perry movie and her
onscreen impact is just as
explosive in this one as it
was in the last one. Tasha
Smith is an actress that
takes her craft very seri-
ously but at the same time
she can step back and
enjoy the real moments
that encompass the com-
bination of her work
world and her real world.
The Camden, New Jersey
native has gracefully tran-
sitioned through the game
as an award winning
stand-up comedian to
positioning herself notice-
ably in television and
film. For her latest role in
the Tyler Perry film Why
Did I Get Married, Smith
portrays the sassy, "tell-it-
Angela who hits the
booze bottle hard and
often. Angela is married
to Marcus, an ex-pro foot-
ball player whose career
was cut short by an injury.
She has a successful
beauty salon business and
is resentful at being the
sole financial provider
and his self-esteem has hit
rock bottom. They join
three other couples on
their annual weekend
retreat in the Colorado
Back to the real world,
how did Smith join with
Tyler for not only one, but
two movies? She
responds, "Well I think
we just work really well
together. I had fun on
Daddy's Little Girls. I
don't think it was. his
intention to give me the role as
Angela in I'hr- Did I Get.
Alaried, because he had
someone else in mind for it
and I was .reading the script
just as his friend and I fell.in
love with Angela. I talked to
him about it and eventually we
worked it out. Tyler doesn't
usually like to hire people
back to back because he's so
generous and likes to give
everyone the opportunity to
work. He likes to put in a lot
of new and different faces in
his films and not use the same
people over and over again. So
I'm really grateful that he
changed that ard allowed me
to do Angela."
The cast shot their first
scenes in the March show in
Whistler and Pemberton,
Canada. The train scene was.
shot on an actual Amtrak train
and the rest was shot on the
sound stages of Perry's
Smith warmly recalls the
cast's first gathering.
"We got along, we bonded
and we had such an amazing
time. The camaraderie
amongst the cast; everyone
was so sincere and loving
towards one another; it was
such a blessing for all of us to
be together on that film."
Were there any surprises in
the final cut of the film for
Smith? She marvels, "What
surprised me with that scene at
the dinner table; that I did not
know it would go over the
way it did. That was my
-biggest surprise.". How much
of this film actually mirrors
real life? Smith reflects, "I
think a lot of it. A lot of times
were not really honest about
what we go through as people.
We try to act as if our lives are
so perfect and if you really
look into the lives of some
marriages and some situa-
tions, I'm telling you; you
know that some marriages may have
gone through what Angela and Marcus
went through.-You know that some
women may not want to have children
again. You know that their may be an
anger and a bitterness because of one
couple blaming the other for a tragedy
that had taken place in the relationship. I
just think that all of it is reality!"
When she is off set, Smith enjoysbox-
ing which she has been doing for a long
time and has a trainer. She is also a moti-
vational speaker and has an acting
instruction workshop as well as provid-
ing private acting lessons. Check out at

Why Did I Get
Films stars Tyler Perry,
Sharon Leal, Janet
Jackson, Malik Yoba, Jill
Scott, Richard T Jones,
Tasha Smith, Michael J.
White, Denise Boutte and
Lamman Rucker. Tyler
Perry creamed the compe-
tition on the opening
weekend via a 21 million
box office showing with
this latest film. The cast as
usual is fresh, colorful and
the chemistry is right on
the money. The basic.
premise is that four cou-
pies who knew each other
in college went on their
annual weekend get away
to a Colorado mountain
retreat: Once there, things
began to unravel especial-
ly after some relationship
threatening secrets were
revealed in the heat of a
dinner table argument. As
with all Tyler Perry films,
the humor and wit was
combined with some seri-
ous topics that all couples
through in very believable
fashion. Tasha Smith may
have stolen the show with
her sassy, no nonsense,
(Angela) who was also the
main comic relief of the
film. Denise Boutte
(Trina) portrayed the
film's bad girl who was
cheating with Shelia's
husband. The men were
not only eye candy for the
ladies but held their own
as well. Malik Yoba
Gavin), was the most seri-
ous. Richard T. Jones
(Shelia's. husband Mike)
may be the most hated
because of his blatant dis-
respect for his wife and
his openly cheating on her
in her face with Trina.
Michael J. White
Marcus) was the perfect
counter part to her drunk-
en antics while Lamman
Rucker (Sheriff Troy) was
the film's romantic hero
coming to Shelia's rescue.
Tyler held his own as
Dianne's hubby. This is a
feel good film that you
