The Second Annual ABC Breast
Health Summit Aims to Eradicate Breast
Cancer on Florida's First Coast

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., August 29, 20Q8 The
Women of Color Cultural Foundation, African Methodist
Episcopal Church and Mayo Clinic are joining forces
again this year to provide the women of Northeast Florida
with valuable information to help reduce .their risk of
breast cancer. On Saturday, September 27th, from 8:30
am to 1 p.m., all are invited to the Second Annual ABC
Breast Health Summit at St. Paul AME Church.
The summit will include various workshops and lec-
tures about breast health as well as related topics such as
breast self exams, how to talk to your doctor, and a Q&A
session about reconstructive surgery led by Imelda S.
Grieser, RN.' Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all
attendees. Dr. Johnny Ray Bernard, a radiation oncologist
at Mayo Clinic, will serve as the keynote speaker.
"When it comes to breast health, you must be proac-
tive and know that you are entitled to good care," said
Monica Albertie, project managerof Mayo Clinic's health
disparities program. "Go to your doctor regularly, under-
stand your breast screenings options and don't delay treat-
ment." Ms. Albertie will be sharing information about
Mayo Clinic's Live Well. Be.Well. Program which aims to
raise awareness about breast cancer in minority communi-
ties.
The American Cancer Society names breast cancer as
the most frequently diagnosed cancer in all women.
Though white women are more likely to contract the dis-
ease, African-American women are at higher risk of death
from breast cancer. Asian and Hispanic women may have
a, lower risk of getting breast cancer, but should also be
aware of risk factors.
"Raised awareness leads to prevention and every
woman should be empowered to make A difference," says
Dr. Helen Jackson, health advocate and founder of the
Women of Color Cultural Foundation. "Together we can
end the devastating impact breast cancer has on our com-
munity."

Don't Let Your Teen's


Future Go Up In Smoke

It's simple, marijuana and teens are not a good mix-especially when it comes to learning and
academic success. We know that all young people face challenges as they grow and mature and
that the dangers and temptations of drugs are all around. We also know that as a parent or some
one who cares about young people, you want the very best for them; you want them to do even
better than you did and lead productive lives.

While overall drug use among teens is down in recent years, there are still too many brilliant-
young people whose potential is ruined. Don't let drugs destroy their chance of going to college or
landing a good job.




A teenage marijuana user's odds of dropping out are more than twice
that of a non-user.

The short-term effects of marijuana can include impaired memory and
ability to learn.2

1 Letter to the Editor



Palin is pretty. But....
But she did not explain her belief that earth is only 6,000 years old.
But she,did not explain her belief that there is no global climate change.
But she did not explain her ardent support for the bridge to nowhere, something
which is troubling, given her comments last.week that she had been opposed to it.
But she did not explain her pretense at being a reformer when she is the opposite.
But she did not explain firing the librarian who refused to ban books chosen by Palin.
But she did not explain firing the state worker who refused to fire Palin's in-law with
whom she had a running feud.
But she did not explain whether her support for drilling in ANWR means that McCain
has now flip-flopped on this issue, just like his flip-flop on coastal drilling.
But she did not explain how it is possible to be VP and yet be associated with and a sup-
porter of a group which advocates secession from the U.S.!
But she did not explain why she thinks Ben Franklin and cronies recited the pledge of
allegiance, when clearly they did not, since it was not written until 120 years later.
But she did not explain why she thinks it was right to go to war in Iraq.
But she did not explain how she will decide whether military action is appropriate in
the future.
But she did not explain the strange and totally weird beliefs promoted in her own
church, things much more strange than anything Obama or Dr. Jeremiah Wright have
ever said.
Palin is pretty, but she explained nothing.
Palin is pretty, but it does not overcome the fact that the decision to choose Palin was
the sloppiest, most poorly-planned, most reckless decision for VP by any major party in
more than 50 years, more reckless even than Eagleton, than Agnew, than Dan Qualye.
Palin is pretty, but it does not explain why any person, man or woman, should run for
national office when they have 5 children, one a tiny Downs Syndrome infant, when the
family is stressed with a million personal problems, when one child is now making
plans to give birth fo a child out of wedlock, when the family is in a running feud with
in-laws, when the husband has DUI problems.
Palin is pretty, but does she have family values?! -I apply the same rules to Palin as to
a man. Wouldn't you think that any serious family-values man or woman would turn
down the campaign for VP when the candidate's family is busy right now with so much
family trauma?
No nominee for President or Vice President, man or woman, has ever had so many
family problems at the time of a campaign.
Palin is pretty. She is very pretty. She looks very nice when she speaks. But she cleared
up none of the many problems which needs answers.
Palin is pretty. But she has not yet made time to field questions from media. We have
not seen yet whether she is able to speak to media without a teleprompter.
Palin is pretty, but it is reckless to nominate for VP a person who has never appeared
on any national network Sunday talk shows, who has never been studied by the coun-
try, who has never been investigated'by anyone yet.
Palin is pretty, but this is the first time in 100 years for a party to offer as VP some-
body who the party never checked out in the local newspaper files.
Palin is pretty, but we have no reason to predict anything at all about her position on
any international issues. Oh, well, we know she is for the war. But that is all. We don't
know why she is for the war. And we know nothing about her position on any other
international issues.
Palin is pretty but it is a reckless move to put her on the ticket, a woman who knows
little U.S. history, a woman who knows little foreign policy, a person who has no expe-
rience on national issues, a candidate who believes the world is 6,000 years old.
For my Republican friends, I would suggest you need to trade her in for somebody
else.
For my Democratic friends, I urge you point out repeatedly that never before has this
country chosen for Vice President or President a person who supports secession. This is
nuts.
Palin is pretty.
Sincerely,
Andy Johnson

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known jor its
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!

My 17-year old step-daughter is a mess. My husband pays child support ben evr ly
but the mother spends it. She lives with the grandmother who won't let
him talk to her or visit. She told the court he was an abusive stranger.
They blocked him school visits but then she invited him to a basketball
game. She's cursed out everybody, ran away from home, steals, and can't
get along with her mother but my husband still wants a relationship with
her.
Concerned Los Angeles, CA

Dear Concerned:
Sounds like some strict discipline has been obviously missing. She's been severely neglected,
brainwashed and manipulated by her mother and grandmother. Regardless of her age, your hus-
band's right by not giving up on her, Once she turns 18, she can operate of her own free will. That
may be the time your husband can help her get counseling to improve her self worth and prevent a
rocky adulthood.

Dear Deanna!
My husband's old affair is tearing me apart. First we had one child and then another one before we
got married. I later learned he had an affair with a woman that stroked his ego during my first preg-
nancy. He claims it was one time but the way she stalked him, harassed us and bothered us for a
few years made me doubt it. He confessed when the phone calls started and but I still can't get the
affair out of my mind when I look at him.
Anonymous On-Line Reader

Dear Anonymous:
You set yourself up for drama by getting pregnant without the wedding ring in the first place.
You can't lay too much blame on his actions because he wasn't officially your man. If this is in the
past, you need to leave it there. Unless he's doing something that's current then get over it. You're
causing yourself pain and agony from an old wound. Seek professional or spiritual counseling to
get to the root of your pain, squash it and keep it moving.

Dear Deanna!
I have problems with my sister constantly giving sweets, candy and junk food to my nieces and
nephews. It wouldn't be so bad if she had dental insurance. I guess I worry because teeth are impor-
tant and if they're ruined it could hurt their self-esteem. How do I approach this subject with her?.
Nikki Omaha, NE

Dear Nikki:
Your sister is rudely making bad decisions regarding her children's teeth. That's something she'll
definitely have to deal with later. Unfortunately, the mother is guilty of harming the vessel God
assigned to these kids. The only thing you can do is suggest healthy snacks, teeth friendly treats and
be there for the kids when they have to put their teeth in a jar at night.

PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY
GENERAL INFORMATION
Damage to peripheral nerves, which are nerves other than those in
the brain and spinal cord, is called peripheral neuropathy. The dam-
age sometimes occurs as complication of a long-term disorder such T
as diabetes mellitus, alcoholism, certain vitamin deficiencies or tumors in certain parts of the T
body. There are many other possible causes of peripheral nerve damage, including taking cer- 1
tain drugs for too long and over-exposure to certain chemicals (especially arsenic, mercury, lead,
and the organophosphates found in many insecticides). Avoiding toxic chemicals, injuries, and
excessive intake or alcohol, along with observing good nutritional and exercise habits, can help
you prevent neuropathy.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
In most forms of peripheral neuropathy, symptoms begin gradually, over many months. A dra-
matic exception is "Guillain-Barre Syndrome". The standard patter is a tingling sensation that
begins in the hands and feet and spreads slowly along all four limbs to the trunk; then in the
same way, numbness may develop. Often the skin becomes very sensitive, and you may have
neuralgic pain. In some cases, there is gradual weakening of muscle power throughout the body.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
Peripheral neuropathy is relatively common among alcoholics and diabetics. Cases caused by a
build-up of toxic, harmful, or chemicals are rare in the general population, but occur more often
among farm workers and people who work in other jobs where there is exposure to chemicals.
One of the risks associated with peripheral neuropathy is that if a numbed part of your body
is injured, you may be unaware of the injury until infection or ulceration occurs. Numbness in the
fingers can reduce dexterity and'make you more susceptible to accidents or injuries. A gradual
wasting away of the muscles can accompany the weakness which can even become paralysis.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE?
Because slow damage to the nerves either improves very gradually or is irreversible, early diag-
nosis is important. If your hands and feet are tingling, and especially if any of the factors that
can cause this condition are applicable to you, see your physician, who will probably refer you
to a neurologist for tests. The neurologist will take your medical and personal history and will
examine you for signs of numbness, muscle weakness, and changes in your reflexes. Special
tests will depend on what the neurologist thinks may be causing the symptoms.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?
No direct medical or surgical treatment is possible. But if the cause of nerve damage is found
to be diabetes or some other chronic' disorder, stricter treatment or the underlying problem
should slow or halt the progress of peripheral tieuropathy. If the toxic chemicals have caused
the problem, you will be advised to stop your exposure to that substance. This may require a
change of occupation.
In severe cases where muscles have been badly weakened, aids to mobility and independence,
such as physical therapy, walking with a cane or other support, and bath rails may be prescribed.
You will also be warned to remain actively aware of the possibility of unnoticed wounds on your
numb limbs and to consult your physician without delay whenever you have a severe bruise or an
open sore. Be sure to take care of you feet and toe nails and wear shoes that fit well.
Dr. Watkins can be heard live Sundays at 7:05 pm EST on www.KCOHRadio.com. He is

KILLING THE MESSENGER
People should stop trying to kill the messengers that can't be killed!
There is this tug of war going on in the Black community and peo-
ple are trying to put me right in the middle of it. I don't care who wins
the tug, I just try to write the truth about it.
Let me explain, recently in The Gantt Report, I've written columns
about how there is a historic increase in political campaign contributions
in 2008 and there is a parallel historic decrease in Black participation in
political campaign purchasing transactions.
No one has said I've lied about what is going on. Instead they try to dismiss me by saying, "Lucius
just wants to get paid" or "Lucius is hurting the Black candidates" and so forth.
I'm just a Black columnist. I'm just a community messenger. I just speak up for brothers and sisters
that can't speak or are scared to speak about how many of us feel about how we are treated by many
politicians.
I want to make a couple of things clear. Yes, I have a company that provides services to persons
seeking elected office. It's mainly a media company and most campaign money is spent on media.
However, I have not asked Obama, McCain or any other candidate, or any political party, or any
Political Action Committee, or any 527 Committee, on any national, state or local level candidate for a
damn dime!
I do not use this column to generate money for me. In fact, most clients of mine are never mentioned
in The Gantt Report and I would never endorse anyone that pays me without making that relationship
crystal clear to this column's readers.
Further, I don't have a personal problem with candidates choosing the campaign workers and ven-
dors of their choice. And, they shouldn't have a problem with me or other Black community. members
that possibly disagree with various candidate choices.
Think what you want. Say what you want and vote for the candidate that you want to vote for.
But believe this! I wonder about candidates that love diversity but hate diversity in their campaign
spending. I'm concerned about candidates that say we are all Americans and we are all equal but feel
that some American media companies and political vendors,are inferior just because of their skin color.
I would love to see Barack Obama elected as President of the United States but I would hate a pres-
idency that feels that no one is smart, no one is qualified, no one is capable e, no one is experienced and
no one can do serious, professional and successful political and governmental work unless you are blue-
eyed, blond haired and pale-skinned! (Gantt's new book "Beast Too:Dead Man Writing" is coming

location, he was not able to make contact with Mr. M. who lives at the dispatch loca-
tion. At 5:30 p.m., the officer made contact with Mr. M. on the phone. Mr. M. stat-
ed that his girlfriend, Ms. ADJ, black female, 5'2", 190 lbs, who has lived with,him
for the past three months, has not been seen nor heard from in three days. Mr. M.
stated that his friend, Ms. KH, had called him and told him that she received a, call
from Ms. J. and that she stated that she had been taken by her ex-husband and his
friend and that she did not know where
she was. The officer spoke to a person
who identified herself as Ms. KH on
the phone and she repeated the same
statements to him. At 9:00 p.m., the ,
officer once again attempted to make
contact with Mr. M. to verify his iden- / \ ;
tity and the information being provid- \ $ \
ed. Upon his arrival, he made contact' / '/
with another officer who had also been ,
dispatched to the empty address. The
dispatcher was not able to reach Mr. M.
on the call back attempt. The sergeant
was contacted and advised of this inci-
dent.

You're so focused on a goal (or plural ones)
as the week gets going, you might be a little
oblivious to the impact you're having while
you're going after it Check in with the perti-
nent people in your life without them,
who'll help you enjoy getting there? And the
stars say that is indeed the fun part, especial-
ly around Thursday and Friday this week!
The process ought to feel good now,
whether its a work project, a relationship,
volunteering or a new fascination. But be
warned: if you're expecting to make big
strides in any particular direction this week-
end, the universe has other plans.

CANCER
June 22nd July 22nd
Conserve your resources and rest up a bit at
the beginning of the week.. Life looks
rather busy now, and overdoing it or stress-
ing out about it all won't help. A sensible
-friend can help you prioritize and provide
support! But if you've got money matters
mixed into a friendship or another relation-
ship, look out around Thursday or Friday.
Be crystal clear about who's paying or
who's getting paid back when (and even
then it may not be pretty). But when the
weekend comes, set your sights on big,
beautiful things you're in synch with
your world (and maybe a certain some-
one!).

LIBRA
SjSept 23rd Oct 22nd
While Monday might find you with
your head in the clouds or even on cloud
nine, the next couple of days bring you
back to earth with a bump and some tur-
bulence, too. It's time to get serious,
with work and relationships demanding
lots of care and feeding. Save the fun
plans for Thursday and Friday, when
your time ought to. free up a bit. Could
have something.to do with your bound-
less energy and renewed interest in
everything! The stars smile on you --
and your love life -- now. But get ready:
On Saturday and Sunday, up is down,
down is up and it's all topsy-turvy. This
could be fun with the right attitude!

CAPRICORN
Dec 22nd- Jan 19th

Monday may start out a little bumpy,
but you know what to do: Keep on
keeping on, and the stars will be on
your side soon! In fact, the next cou-
ple of days are all lined up in your
favor, with what you've been after
right within your reach. Then again, it
hardly feels like a stretch when you're
this good! Be sure to leave yourself a
little leeway on Thursday and Friday,
though; things will take longer than
they should. You're thinking about the
future now, but save the major brain-
storming -- and communicating -- in
that realm for this weekend.


_ _~_I


Take full advantage of a cosmic win-
dow of opportunity first thing on
Monday, because it's gonna slam shut
and leave you just looking over the
next couple of days. A hint from the
stars for this stymied time? A little
self-discipline helps a lot. And don't
get too wound up abopt it all, because
Thursday brings all kinds of possibili-
ties for better things. If you've been
thinkingabout making a change of the
forward-looking, positive sort, it's all
systems go! When the weekend
comes, though, you'll need to try hard-
er to stay on track -- or just relax by
the wayside.


S TAURUS
Apr 20th May 20th

Play it safe on Monday, whatever it may
be; you'll have a muck better idea about
what direction to take over the next cou-
ple of days. Your efforts at developing a
better understanding before you decide
what to do show the universe that you
care, and it'll return the favor now. But
look out: The energy around Thursday
and Friday isn't quite as favorable to your
undertakings. Is someone or something
standing in your way? Will you keep
pushing, or is a little sidestep a possibili-
ty? When the weekend comes, minimize
your fear factor; it's all about giving it a
try.

LEO
July 23rd -Aug 22nd

Saying what you mean is a fine idea in
many a situation, but at the beginning of
the week, know when you're crossing a
line. A hint from the stars: Put the shoe
on the other foot, see how the message
feels and adjust accordingly. Then, a
certain relationship requires some
thought around Thursday or Friday.
Whether it's your boss, your mom or
your significant other, your patience and
vision makes the process more of a
compromise than a clash. And it's the
more ephemeral, abstract stuff that'll
interest you most this weekend -- think
art, music and the ever-ineffable love!

' SCORPIO
Oct 23rd Nov 21st
Think and plan long-term as the week
begins. What have you got going on
that you'd like to see more of, and
what are you ready to jettison? Let
others in on what you come up with, at
work and elsewhere. By Thursday and
Friday,. it's time for you to take a par-
ticular interest in what others say; if
you ignore the messages coming your
way, conflict will be inevitable. Tune
in, and things can only get better --
especially over the weekend, when all
forms of creativity are favored,
including love!

441 AQUARIUS

Who's in charge here? While you don't
have complete control over, say, who
your boss .is, the beginning of this
week gives you the chance to make
choices a-plenty. Whose guidance
really helps you? A little great counsel
is always welcome. Just don't expect
big things around Thursday and
Friday, when trying to do too much
means none of it gets done well.
What're your current -- and longer-
term -- priorities? Whatever you focus
on this weekend gets assistance from
some serious star treatment. And look
at you -- you're all aglow!

It's A NEW DAY For Paul Porter:
With A New Outlook and Fresh
i- PuPre Perspective
S PA UL PORTER,4 Paul Porter Releases His Solo Debut

S^, The project is highlighted with appearances
from Pastor Rance Allen, Producer David Caton,
and Harvey Watkins, Jr. of the Canton Spirituals
Nashville, TN- -With 30 years as the lead
singer of the legendary gospel quartet, The
SChristianaires, Paul Porter ha's had his share of
sorrows and exuberant moments. However,
through his reflection Paul is able to see the other
-side of those experiences with a fresh perspective.
With his whole heart, he is ready to express that this is A NEW DAY (Light Records). The
solo debut will release September 30 and is chock full of variety, appealing to traditional
quartet fans and contemporary gospel lovers alike.
A NEW DAY is representative of much more than just an.album title; it is a collection
of his life's journey. Each song was picked to embody the promise he made to God during
his sickness. "I told Him when I got off my sick bed; I would testify everywhere I went."
With songs titled "My Redeemer Lives", "I'll Praise You", and "I Know a Man", Paul shares
his faithfulness to God through this album.
"There were a lot of songs that were imbedded in me and it is now my time to share".
The tune "What Did You Do", written by Porter, is a traditional hand-clapping, aisle danc-
ing song that "feels like Sunday morning, ya'll". The 'must get up and dance' song helps lis-
teners go back and remember what they did when the Lord saved them.
With a slow head bop, and a soulful demeanor, "You're Blessed" and "Get Away And
Pray", are songs that "the young folks could listen to". Capturing the elements of an R&B
.groove, Porter adds his spiritual touch.
The quartet swinging, "I Made it Through" has a traditional feel with punchy horns and
tight background vocals. As a personal testimony for Porter, he recollects, "I used to sing
about that all the time and now I realize when you through something yourself it really hits
home and you can really say, yes...I made it through.
Paul is also joined by Harvey Watkins, Jr. of the Canton Spirituals on "He's There All
The Time". The duet ushers in the Spirit of God with the choir chiming in, "he's there all the
time", woven over the testimony and interplay between Paul and Harvey.
"Going into the studio I was a bit nervous. I have had other opportunities to do a solo
project but the timing just wasn't right, but now this is truly in God's timing. I've prayed
about it and I know that God has ordained it," imparts Paul.
Paul Porter is most recognized as the thunder-throat lead vocalist of the Christianaires;
gaining notoriety as one of the most renowned quartet outfits. Known for his vocal flexibil-
ity and an array of music, talents; arranging, producing, and writing for artists such as the
Williams Brothers, the Canton Spirituals, and the Drifters. He also has shared the stage with
Aretha Franklin, Lou Rawls, and K-Ci lead singer of the 90's super group, Jodeci.
This is only just the beginning for Paul Porter. With such a story to tell, this album will
be a must-have for all gospel lovers. "A New Day" gives that traditional gospel quartet
sound an edgy update and those R&B grooves a spiritual injection.

May 21st June 21st
Consider the prolonged sound of your
own voice a red flag as the week gets
going. Asking smart, caring questions is
a lot more meaningful than launching
into a monologue -- after all, you already
know what you have to say. The increase
in understanding can take your breath
away, especially after the stars kick in a
little turbo power starting Thursday. Are
you ready to rocket into your future?
Evolve your personal and big-picture
vision at lightning speed now. And be
warned: People are taking what you say
this weekend particularly seriously.
Make sure you mean it!

VIRGO
Aug 23rd Sept 22nd
No, you don't wanna do anything
crazy, but the stars are calling on you
to put your heart into it as the week
begins! Whether it's work, a relation-
ship, a secret hope or something else
entirely, show the universe your pas-
sion. Then, if you're really ready for
something new, you can start making it
happen on Thursday. Check out alter-
native perspectives in everything you
do; opposites in particular hold clues.
And this weekend's prime. for improv-
ing your karma. Do good now, and not
only will it feel warm 'rif fuzzy, it'll
come back to you!

SAGITTARIUS
Nov 22nd Dec 21st
You'd rather not sweat the small stuff,
but when it comes to finances as the
week begins, there are no minor mat-
ters. Pay attention to receipts, to get-
ting good value and to all the decimal
points in work budgets, too. It's not
very exciting, true, but if it's fun you
want just wait until Thursday, when
the stars kick off a couple of stellar
interpersonal days 'for you. If you're
looking to make or build on a connec-
tion of any sort, now's the time to
shine! Get out there, because this
weekend you're liable to be stuck run-
ning errands or playing catch-up.

Sports Writer
The Edward Waters Tigers open their season Saturday against Shaw (0-1) in the Willie
E. Gary Classic at Raines High School..
The Tigers made strides last season. Edward Waters evolved from a .2006 team that went
1-9 to a squad that earned a share of the South East Atlantic conference title with Concordia.
EWC won four of its last six games in 2007 after a 1-4 start.
Head coach Kevin Clark has a squad returning with a dozen seniors including quarter-
back Kamau Leitner.
Leitner, whom Clark calls the team's "bread and butter" earned all-conference honors
last season after passing for 13 touchdowns. Defensively, Clark is looking for his Tigers to
play "up-tempo" throughout each game. The defense is led by All- SEAC sophomore line-
backer Jamal Sheffield, a transfer from Alcorn State, and 305-pound senior tackle Munir
Muwwakkil.
"I tell our kids before every game, just give me 100 percent out there. That's all I ask. I
don't care what the outcome or the score is of the game. Give me that 100 percent onl the field,
and I guarantee you that you'll be successful," Clark said.
The Shaw Bears came up short losing to the Golden Rams of Albany State University
last Saturday 27-10. Freshman Kicker Lincoln Shepherd made an impressive 41-yard field
goal-with 3:15 left in the half giving Shaw University its first score of the season. Shaw
scored with 18 seconds left in the 1st half. Aaron Ellison rushed for 11. yards and the Bears
only TD.
"It's my senior season, and time to lead EWC to another level," Leitner said. "We've got
a great group of receivers out. There are at least six different guys I can throw to that I know
vwill make catches for us."
Mark down Sept. 27 against Webber International at home as a key game on the 2008
schedule.
The Tigers failed to accomplish a winning season last year in part because they lost some
close games, including a 20-18 defeat to the Warriors. A victory in this game could show that
Clark's squad has truly grown into a contender. It'could also be the difference between a win-
ning and losing 2008 campaign.

SAVANNAH, GA. --
Freshman quarterback Josh
McGregor shined in relief
and led Jacksonville
University to three straight
scoring drives as the
Dolphins dominated the sec-
ond half en route to a 20-7
win over Savannah State at
Memorial Stadium on
Saturday night.
A crowd of 4,441
watched the Dolphins spoil
the head-coaching debut' of
Robby Wells.
Jacksonville, which does
riot offer athletic scholar-
ships, is a member bf both
the Football Championship
Subdivision and the Pioneer,
,Conference. The Dolphins
won their season opener for
the first time since 2002,
when they beat Lenoir-
Rhyne, 37-27.
McGregor finished the
night with 159 yards on 9-
of-14 passing. With 9:49 left
in the third, JU's Nate Keller
recovered a bad snap by
Brandon Webster at the
Tigers' 13-yard line. On the
next play, McGregor, who
replaced starter Erik
Stepelton, to begin the sec-
ond half, ran up the middle
for a 13-yard touchdown that
made it 10-0.
"We knew that .once we
scored once, the flood gates


would open," said JU coach
Kerwin Bell. "Josh came in
and made some plays for us
tonight when we needed
them. He's a young kid who
can make things happen and
he gave us a big boost when
we needed it."
JU's defense forced 10
three-and-outs and held the
Tigers to just 226 yards of
offense.
"The defense did a 'great
job of keeping us in the ball
game in the first half, espe-
cially ,when we turned it
over," Bell said. "Those guys
had a tremendous week of
preparation and it showed
tonight."
The offense produced
107 yards of total offense in
the first half, with 93 of that,
coming through the air. In
the second half, JU produced
247 yards 159 in the air.
JU sophomore Rudell
Small ran for 109 yards on
25 carries to lead the team.
Senior wide receiver Geavon
Tribble led all receivers with
five catches for 81 yards. In
all, eight different Dolphins
caught passes.
Both teams missed field
goals in the first half, but the
Dolphins got the scoring
started with a Josh Hostetler
29-yard field goal on the
opening drive of the third
quarter.
JU got a 7- yard run
from freshman Keith
Dawson to cap an 8- play,
83-yard drive to go on top


17-0.
"That third quarter killed
us," Wells said.
"Defensively, the first half,
we kept stopping them. But
for the longest time we
couldn't move the ball,
offensively. We've got to get
better." )
The Tigers got on the
board midway through the
fourth as Kurvin Curry
hooked up with Tyron
Kirkland. for a 32-yard
touchdown pass to cut the
JU lead to 10, 17-7.
Hostetler's 42-yarder
put JU on top 20-7 with 3:55
remaining.
It was Bell's first road
win as head coach. Savannah
State has not won its season
opener since 2004, a 41-34'
double-overtime victory at
Norfolk (Va.) State.
Savannah State also
learned Saturday morning
that 11 players were ineligi-
ble to play against
Jacksonville because of
NCAA Clearinghouse
issues. Having snapped a
six-game losing streak in
season openers, the Dolphins
hit the road to face No. 1
Appalachian State.
"We're going to savor
this win right now," Bell
said. "But we've got a big
week ahead of us, so we're
going to go right back to
work tomorrow to get ready
for next Saturday."

Jaguars Make Final Cuts In Preparatioi',Fo,.,
Titan's Regular Season Opener In Tennesgsee;!

By. Michael Bonts
Sports writer
The Jaguars will begin their season on Sept. 7, when
they travel to meet the AFC South rival Tennessee Titans.
On the 10th anniversary of the Titans, a few.faniiliar
faces return to Nashville this year, including offensive coor-
dinator Mike Heimerdinger, defensive end Jevon Kearse aind
wide receiver Justin McCareuns.
Heimerdinger should help third-year quarterback Vin.ce
Young become a more dynamic passer and playmaker,.while
new right end Alge Crumpler should provide a safety. alive
for Young. The running duo of LenDale While pnd rookie
Chris Johnson are expected to carry the load.
A former Florida Gator Kearse will join a defensive line
that already includes end Kyle Vanden Bosch .and tackle
Albert' Haynesworth. Linebacker Keith Bulluck;, safeties
Michael Giiffin and Chris Hope and cornerback Cortland
Finnegan are key players on defense.
The Jaguars released veteran quarterback Todd Bouman
on Saturday, also releasing backup linebacker Kenneth
Pettway 'as part of the team's "cut-down day" maneuvers...
The 36-year-old Bouman posted a strong 2008 presea-
son, compiling a team-best 107.5 passer rating and throwifig
a pair of touchdown passes, but couldn't hold off Cleo
Lemon for the primary backup job behind David Garrard..
Also,getting trimmed on Saturday was Pettway, who.
appeared in 17 games as a member of the Jaguars over tie
past two seasons. The Grambling 'State product, who bad
three sacks in his Jacksonville career and contributed on slpe-
cial teams, was originally a seventh-round Draft choice'of
the Houston Texans in 2005.
Others released were fight end Chris Brown, defensive
end Mkristo Bruce, tackle Andrew Carnahan, tight end
Charles Davis, running back Ciatrick Fason, cornerback
Isaiah Gardner. linebacker Tony Gilbert, cornerback Michael
Grant, wide receiver Ryan Hoag. defensive tackle Jesse
Mahelona. offensive lineman Pete McMahon, offensive line-
man Drew Miller, cornerback Rashod Moulton, linebacker
Lamar Myles. defensive end Bo Schobel. defensive back
Trae Williams. and wide receiver D'Juan Woods.
In other moves on Saturday, the Jaguars placed defehn-
sive back Chad Nkang and defensive lineman Jeremy
Mincey on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list,
while placing defensive tackle Jonathan Lewis (knee) on sea-
son-ending injured reserve.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed cornerback
Williams James and waived safety Jamaal Fudge. The
Jaguars also added quarterback Paul Smith to their practice
squad. Smith signed as an undrafled rookie free agent this
season and was among the team's final cuts on Sunday.
