Barack Obama Wins in Iowa
First Black to Win Presidential Caucus. 38% of Votes: Republican Huckabee. 34%
U.S. Senator Barack Obama
Barack Obama ,has
made history by being'the
first African American to
win a presidential state cau-
cus. But this feat was not
easy for him. Even though
his opponents talk about
experience, the 46-year-old
presidential candidate does
have leadership experience
that started as a child. He
studied at top U. S. schools,
taught law at a college and
served in political positions
beginning at the local level
to his present position as a
U. S. Senator. He paved his
way to become a leader.
Former Senator John
Edwards came second in the
race with 30% and former
first lady and U. S. Senator,
Hilliary Clinton came in
third place with 29%.
In the Republican race,
the .front runner was Mike
Huckabee, a Baptist preach-
er who became a politician
with 34% followed by
Mitt Romney and former
Tennessee Senator Fred
Thompson in third place.

Hinesville, Ga., Gets
First Black Mayor
Jim Thomas made history last
Friday morning when he was
sworn in as Hinesville's first Black
mayor. The mayor said his being
sworn in is a "powerful affirmation
of God's grace."
Mayor Thomas moved to
Hinesville in 1977 and at that time,
had not been in politics. He said,
that politics, back then, was not in
the cards and not in his thought pattern for tomorrow.
Thomas was sworn in along with the city's city council.
They took their oath and are now ready to serve. He said he
recognizes that his being mayor in a Georgia city is a confir-
mation of Dr. King's words, you are not judged by your
color, but by the power of the mind."

How to Choose the Right Medicare Part D
Medicare Advantage Plan
During the annual election
period 'of November 15
through December 31, 2007,
people are able to switch plans
or enroll in Medicare Part D
prescription drug coverage
through stand-alone plans or
through integrated medical
and prescription plans. Here's
helpful information you
should know when making
Medicare Part D offers
insurance coverage for pre-
scription drugs through pri-
vate health insurance compa-
nies. The program covers spe-
cific brand-name and generic
medicines at participating
pharmacies in local communi-
ties providing protection
for people who pay a lot each
year for their medicines.
Medicare beneficiaries can
receive prescription drug cov-
erage through stand-alone
plans, called Medicare Part D
Prescription Drug Plans
(PDPs), or through plans
called Medicare Advantage
Part D (MAPD). PDPs sup-
plement Medicare coverage
while MAPD plans replace
Medicare part A and provide
medical benefits and prescrip-
tion drug coverage.
"By enrolling in a plan
with Medicare prescription
drug coverage, a typical cus-
tomer can save about 50 per-
cent on their medicines," says
Sam Rajan, a pharmacist and
vice president of

isters one of the nation's
largest Medicare Part D

Medicare recipients consider

Rajan. "Equally important are

and what drugs are covered by
When comparing costs of
different Part D plans,
Medicare beneficiaries should
look at the amount they would
pay each month (the premi-

have to pay before the plan

they would have to pay for

~ Bold City Links Celebrate With Their Prez ~
The palatial Northside home of Lt. CoL Robert and Mrs.
Josephine Fiveash Porter was the setting for the elaborate holiday
gathering of the Bold City Chapter, Links, Inc. hosted by their new
president Mrs. Ruth Waters McKay. Resplendent in a winter white
holiday ensemble Mrs. McKay was the "Hostess with the most-est"
Everyone was dressed in their gayest holiday attire! And The Porter
home was filled with holiday decorations that included an assortment
of Christmas trees, especially the miniature lighted Christmas trees
that bordered the extensive front walkway of the home. Sugar plums
and gumdrops danced in our thoughts.
With the Bold City Links working earnestly these days with
planning for hosting the Southern Area Links, Inc. meeting Spring
2009, Mrs. McKay thought they needed to take time to make merry,
celebrate the season and have a little fun. The New Year is certain to
be filled with multiple tasks as they continue their plans for 2009.
(Of special note for the First Coast is that the newly elected Southern
Area Director is Mrs. Mary Currie who is the wife of Jacksonville
native James Currie son of the late James and Amy Stewart
Currie. The Curries live in Atlanta. Elected at the 2007 Southem
Area meeting, Mrs. Currie has even more reasons to visit the First
coast with her new duties in the Links, Inc.)
With holiday music, divine edibles, dancing and relaxing chat-
ter, it was such.a lovely party!
~ Savannah Moles Christmas Luncheon ~
The Landings at Savannah's Plantation Country Club is the set-
ting each year for the Savannah Moles Annual Christmas Luncheon
and Jacksonville Moles members Mrs. Madeline Scales-Taylor
and yours truly along with our hubbies traveled to Savannah to join
in the afternoon of fun as the guests of Savannah Moles member
Mrs. Safronia 'Safi' Ingram. The music, merriment, libations and
'heavenly' seafood fare were each unforgettable!
Seeing our Mole sisters from the north was absolutely splendid!
And adding,to that was seeing former First Coast educator and
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority sister, Mrs. Juanita Quinn Jackson.
Mrs. Jackson, widow of our dear childhood friend the late Dr. Reid
Jackson, has retuned to her original home of Savannah, GA from
the D.C. area where she andher late husband lived. Itwas so delight-
ful having a chance to visit with her and hear of grandchildren and
the doings of the Jackson young men.
With 'after parties' going on throughout the Savannah Moles
membership we could not return home following the luncheon. With
a quick change of clothes at our hotel, we continued to our hostess's
'after party' where we dined more. We also had the opportunity to
have a more intimate conversation with the very talented musicians
from the luncheon and our hostesses other invited guests.
Staying over for the night, we did not even consider returning
home until we had more of Savannah's wonderful low-country cui-
sine. It was such a wonderful and fun weekend and we hope we
were pleasant and appreciative enough guests to be invited back!

A School Choice Expo
)uval County Magnet Programs are nationally acclaimed as a school choice
program, allowing students to explore a special interest, gift or talent.
With ten new magnet schools added this year, more students can benefit from this
specialized education. Magnet Mania & More encompasses all the options the
Duval County Public School System offers students.
Magnet schools may feature one or more programs, centering on a theme
or interest, and offer focused experience as.early as elementary school.
Career Academy schools are college preparatory programs, equally readying
students for both college and the workforce, utilizing the academy model
as a smaller learning community within a larger high school setting.
Charter schools are publicly funded, nonsectarian schools that contract
with the Duval County School Board, and are open to all students.
Call 390-2082 or 390-2144, or visit
Magnet Mania & More to learn more about your options.
The magnet application deadline for the
2008-2009 school year is February 29, 2008.

Obama Continued from A-1
Trailing in fourth, fifth and sixth place were Senator John McCain, Rep. Ron Paul
and former mayor Rudy Giuliani. U. S. Senators Joe Biden and Chris Dodd decid-
ed to drop out of the race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nominations after
placing a distant fifth and sixth in the Iowa caucuses, even though they offered more
experience among the Democratic contenders.
Senator Dodd in his speech, stating that Democrats sent a clear message that they
are united and that the nation needs change to restore our security, our middle class
and all that makes this country great.
Obama campaigned as a person who wanted and would provide change in this
country while Edwards worked for special interest and Mrs. Clinton stressed her
experience. It is apparent that Americans want change and are not impressed with
a "first lady" experience. But this does not mean that Obama has it made. She has
a lot of money and a lot of organizational support. The money and support was
shocked that Edwards, who has less money was able to beat her out.
If Obama can win New Hampshire, his chance to get into the nation's highest
position is very strong. He told his supporters, "We are choosing hope over fear, we
are choosing unity over division and sending a powerful message that change is
coming to America."
Good, Bad, Sad Continued from A-1
Pastor Darrell Gilyard, 45, of Shiloh Baptist Church is being investigated as a
second accusation of sexual misconduct has been reported against him. Evangelist
Juanita Bynum's husband, Bishop Weeks, was accused of beating her on an
Atlanta parking lot.

Please accept this letter to the Editor on behalf of School
Board Chairwoman Betty Burney and Superintendent Pratt-
We would like to take this opportunity to let the citizens of Jacksonville know about
a property tax reform amendment that you will be asked to vote on January 29,
2008, and its potential impact to Duval County Public School (DCPS) students.
The proposed amendment will provide the average Florida homeowner with only
about $20 per month in relief but result in devastating cuts to public education, cost-
ing local governments over $9 billion and Florida's public school system nearly $3
billion over five years.
To put this in perspective for what this would mean for the Duval County School
District, a vote yes would have a five-year impact, equaling a projected loss of $74
million for our schools. Unlike municipalities, school boards cannot charge fees to
make up for the lost revenue.
If this referendum passes, the school board could lose $53.5 million cumulative in
operating, which is equivalent to DCPS textbooks. allocation ($12.4 million),
Teacher Lead ($250 per teacher or $2.2 million), Reading Enrichment Program ($5
million), Supplemental Academic Instruction ($33.9 million); and $20.5 million in
capital, which is equivalent to construction of 82 classrooms.
Florida is currently facing additional budget cuts to local governments and public
schools. The addition of this amendment would cause us to face a loss to important
programs and initiatives that are ongoing in promoting teaching and learning at our
Duval County Public Schools are opposing this amendment and urge voters to do
the same when they head to the polls on January 29, 2008.
Chairman, Duval County School Board
January 29 Election Won't Be Delayed
A federal judge. U. S. District Judge Robert Hinkle would not delay Florida's
presidential primary scheduled for January 29. He said it is too late to push the
election back to February 5, 2008 as required by the Democratic and Republican
party rules. Florida's GOP-controlled legislatures, including Governor Charlie
Crist moved the date forward and the National parties therefore stripped the state
of all Democratic delegates and half of its Republican delegation to the national
nominating conventions. Michigan is also facing similar penalties by holding their
primary on January 15, 2008.
Judge Hinkle said the law suit filed came too late for a change because the bal-
lots have been printed, polling places arranged and poll workers already scheduled.
The above lawsuit was the third one filed over the early primary. Governor Crist
and the Republican-controlled legislators said the early primary date would give
Florida more say in the nominating process since nominations in both parties have
often been decided before Florida voted. National party rules bar all states except
Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada from holding primaries or cau-
cuses before February 5.
Judge Hinkle agreed that within the next few months, he would decide a constitu-
tional challenge to a state law passed last year that moved Florida's primary date
from March to January.
The judge mentioned U. S. Supreme Court rulings in past primary cases involv-
ing conflicts of party rules and state laws. He stated, "Party rules win every time,
don't they?" "What was the Florida Legislature thinking?"

TALLAHASSEE --The Florida
Lottery announced today the release of a
recently produced television advertise-
ment featuring 14 Florida State
University (FSU) School of Music stu-
dents all Bright Futures scholarship
recipients. The commercial, which is air-
ing between December 24th and January
7th, is a sign of gratitude to Florida
Lottery players for helping provide
Bright Futures scholarships to students
across the state. Featured in the ad is
Colleen Jackson, a graduate from
Douglas Anderson School of Arts and
Bright Futures scholarship recipient.
Wright, who will attend the FSU
International Program in Italy, intends to
get her masters degree in opera perform-
ance. Thrilled to be a Bright Futures

benefits the program has

Florida Lottery Chief

appreciation to Lottery players on behalf

The Bright Futures Scholarship
Program, which is fully funded by the
Florida Lottery, was created in 1997 by
the Florida Legislature to assist students
in pursuing post-secondary educational
and career goals. Since the program's
inception, the Lottery has contributed
nearly $2 billion to send more than
350,000 Florida students to college, now
representing more than one million
Bright Futures scholarships awarded.
Qualifying Florida students may earn
one of three Bright Futures scholarship
awards: the Florida Gold Seal Vocational
Scholars Award, which pays 75 percent
of tuition and fees at public institutions;
the Academic Scholars Award, which
pays 100 percent of tuition and fees at
public institutions and requires 75 hours
of community service; or, the Florida
Medallion Scholars Award, which pays
100 percent of tuition and fees at com-
munity colleges, and 75 percent of
tuition and fees at other, public institu-
tions. The scholarships may be used in
conjunction with the Florida Prelaid
College Plan, as well as other scholar-
Though Florida Lottery contribu-
tions make up approximately five per-
cent of the state's total education budg-
et, Lottery dollars continue to reach
every facet of Florida's public educa-
tion system. Proceeds from every dollar
spent on Lottery tickets are transferred
monthly to the Educational
Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF), for
annual appropriation by the Florida
Legislature and administration by the
Florida Department of Education. For
more information on the Florida
Lottery's contributions to education or
to view the Bright Futures scholars
commercial, please visit the education
section of the Florida Lottery Web site
Since 1988, the Florida Lottery has
contributed more than $17 billion to the
EETF, benefiting Florida's students and
schools, as well as funding more than one
million Bright Futures scholarships. By a
two-to-one margin, Florida voters in
1986 approved a constitutional amend-
ment authorizing the state to operate a
lottery for the purpose of generating sig-
nificant additional moneys for education.

school are the second most
important phase. And the
transition from home and
community into school
may be the most important
transition in his or her life.
But in most school dis-
tricts there is little if any
interaction between local
childcare centers, early
care and education
providers and the public
school system. Transitions
to kindergarten usually
consist of a "meet and
greet" session for parents.
Rarely is there an align-
ment of teaching or cur-
riculum or coordination of
teachers and parents.
Fortunately, that situa-
tion is beginning to
change. In 2006, early
childhood education was
named a legislative priori-
ty by 24 governors, com-
pared to 17 in 2005. Some
states such as Washington
have created new depart-
ments dedicated to early
To support states'
efforts, many national
foundations (including the
Foundation's SPARK ini-
tiative -- Supporting
Partnerships to Assure
Ready Kids), as well as
researchers in academia
and the federal govern-
ment, have launched sys-
that link parents, educa-
tors, early childhood serv-
ice providers, and their
communities. A big part of
innovative thinking is the
movement toward ready
schools. In communities
as diverse as Miami, FL
and Gwinnett County, GA,
where SPARK has made
investments, we are begin-
ning to see positive
In early 2007, the

Schools (the largest school
district in Georgia and the
20th largest in the coun-

school transition model.
Using federal Title I funds
to implement the national-
ly recognized Parents as
Teachers program has
resulted in increases in
skills (including fine
motor skills, problem-
solving and socialization);
greater parent participa-
tion and leadership in
early education and

ticipated in the Parent
Leadership Institute now
serve as chairs on seven
committees); and parent

schools and childcare
facilities. Support for an
increase in the number of
accredited centers led
eventually to success in
creating a quality rating
system that further aligns
expectations across early
education and the early
grades and includes crite-
ria for those all-important
In the past, the burden
was primarily on children
and parents to get ready
for school. But this "two-
way street" approach
helps shape schools so
they are prepared to
receive and serve all chil-
dren. Some additional ele-
ments of this approach
include screening children
for developmental delays
and health issues that
impede learning; helping
parents and families in
their role as first teachers;
and getting child advoca-
cy organizations, busi-
nesses and state agencies
to commit more resources
to early education -
because an investment
now means savings later.
By focusing on the
crucial learning period
from birth up to the early
grades we can also help
ensure the .success of
existing programs such as
No Child Left Behind,
currently up for reautho-
rization by Congress.
Policymakers at all levels
should continue to pro-
vide tools and flexibility
to nurture such communi-
ty-based innovations on
behalf of kids' learning.
We must resolve to create
new structures, practices
and programs to support
the early learning of
infants, toddlers and
preschoolers. This is one

should keep. Millions of

I DIDN'T BURN THE CLOTHES! an
officer was dispatched to the 6100 block of
Hanna Stable Ct, in reference to a fire in the
back of a residence. Upon his arrival; he met
with the victim and both, witness #1 and #2.
A fire truck was already on the scene. One of
the firemen stated that upon his arrival, the
suspect ran inside the house and locked the
door, trying to make them go away. Witness
#1 stated she came outside to smoke a ciga-
rette when she noticed smoke coming from
the back of a house across the street. The witness knocked on the door and the
suspect came outside. The witness went around the back and noticed a pile of
clothes on fire. She said the suspect told her that he and the victim was going
through some changes and that he just lost it. The victim stated that she and the
suspect had been together for 10 years and married for 4 years with four chil-
dren together. She stated that the suspect came home and started hitting her in
the face and stomach. She stated that she then got the kids and when to her
mother's house. She stated that when she
returned later, she observed her clothes
being burned on the back of the house.
When the police asked the suspect to come
South of the house while talking to him on the
phone, he refused and said he was afraid
S 'i& they would kill him. The suspect's father
was called and he talked him into surrender-
ing. The suspect stated the victim started the
fire and the fight. While inside of the resi-
dence, the suspect damaged a computer,
t n microwave, tables, etc. He was taken into
custody without incident.
HE THREW A CLOSED FIST TWO TIMES an officer was dispatched to
the 5900 block of New Kings Rd. in reference to an aggravated assault. Upon
his arrival, he met with Ms. M, who says she got into an altercation the night
before with Mr. S, her live in boyfriend. She said that he hit her twice in the head
while she was at their place of business. She said she went and spend the night
at a hotel. She said when she returned to get some of her belongings, Mr. S told
her to leave his car and that he tried to put it on flat, but she still pulled off in it.
She said that's when he shot at her one time. The police searched for a bullet
shell but couldn't find anything. When the police spoke with a witness that
works for Mr. S, he told him that Ms. M came to the place of business causing
a disturbance and said that she was going to "fuk Mr. S up. He also said that
he did not see a gun. Mr. M stated that he does own a gun and it is registered,
but he did not have a gun that day. Investigation showed where Mr. M had filed
a domestic battery report that morning, listing Ms. M as the suspect. The report-
ing officer was going to seek a warrant for Ms. M today. A warning was read to
Mr. S. The case was dismissed since there was no evidence of a weapon.
HE WAS GOING TO SPRAY THE
HOUSE -An officer was dispatched
to the 800 block of Line St., in refer-
ence to a dispute between two men.
Upon his arrival, he met with the vic-
tim, Mr. T. who stated that he and the
suspect got involved in an argument
because the suspect threatened to
shoot up his house the previous night
due to an argument with some guest
that was visiting his home. The sus-
pect returned to the victim's home
this morning, causing a disturbance.
the victim stated that he saw the suspect possibly armed with what appeared to
be a handgun. The suspect told the victim that he was going to "spray the
house." The victim went inside and called the police. The officer observed the
suspect standing in front of the victim's residence arguing with him. The suspect
was detained and searched by the officer. The suspect did not have any weapons
in his possession. He told the officer that he was at the victim's house buying
shots from him. He said the victim got angry with him and jumped him for no
reason. The officer spoke with a witness who says he saw the suspect walking
down the street with an
unknown object in his hands.
He stated that he was unable to
determine what the object was.
The witness said that they were

GETTING READY FOR
Coach Del Rio wasn't
worried about the Texans'
two touchdown returns or
their 170 yards rushing.
He congratulated his team
on its 11-5 regular-season
record and then turned his
attention immediately to
"Any time you take
16-18 guys out of the mix,
you've put a burden on the
guys covering kicks. Our
approach was to be
smart," Del Rio said fol-
lowing the Jaguars' 42-28
loss at Reliant Stadium on
Sunday in the 2007 regu-
lar-season finale. Next up:
a wild-card round playoff
game in Pittsburgh with
the Steelers on Saturday
The Texans scored
their first AFC South vic-
tory of the season and reg-
istered the first non-losing
season in franchise histo-
David Garrard, Fred

Drew, Rashean Mathis,
Brad Meester, Vince
Manuwai, Daryl Smith,
Tony Pashos, Dennis
Northcutt and Paul Spicer
were held out of Sunday's
game to rest themselves
for the first round of the
playoffs. It was an excel-
lent decision by Del Rio,
especially since it was
announced after the game
that the Jaguars would be
playing in Pittsburgh on a
Quinn Gray replaced
Garrard at quarterback and
turned in an impressive
performance: 25 of 39 for
302 yards, four touch-
downs, no interceptions
and a 122.0 passer rating.
Coach Del Rio said,
"Quinn did a nice job;
made some throws, made
some checks. Quinn's
favorite target was Matt
Jones. In his most exten-
sive playing time of the
season, Jones caught eight
passes for 138 yards and
The negatives on this
day were kickoff returns
of 97 and 104 yards for
touchdowns by Andre
Davis, and a rush-defense
that allowed 88-yard (Ron
Dayne) and 86-yard (rook-
ie Darius Walker) rushers.
Asked if he was con-
cerned by the performance
of his rush-defense, Del
Rio said: "(The Texans)
did a nice job."
The Jaguars are not
going to spend much time
in analyzing their play in
Houston or making cor-
rections. The goal on
Sunday was to come away
unhurt and the Jaguars did.
Montell Owens sustained
what maybe somewhat of
a minor ankle sprain.
To win the Super Bowl
title, the Jaguars may have
to defeat on consecutive
Brady and Peyton
Manning. All three quar-
terbacks have won Super
Bowls; the last four Super
Bowls as a matter of fact.
With the team all rest-
ed and all, they should put
up a good fight.
