With America facing historic debt, multiple war

*Occidental College Two years.
*Columbia University B.A. political science with a
specialization in international relations.
*Harvard Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude
Biden:
*University of Delaware B.A. in history and B.A. in
political science.
*Syracuse University College of Law Juris Doctor
(J.D.)

*North Idaho College 2 semesters general study
*University of Idaho 2 semesters journalism

Veterans for Obama in Jacksonville











State Senator Tony Hill, SSGT Airforce Michael Wilson, SM,
USMC John L. Estrada, ret., CSM Michele S. Jones, Ret., and
LTG USA Ret. Claudia Kennedy.
The above veterans joined Senator Hill for a stop in
Jacksonville as they travel the country determined to
let voters understand not to believe the hype. They
addressed concerns and explained how Mr. Obama
cares for veterans and how he made the judgment to
see that it was wrong to go into Iraq. Their emphasis
was placed on the importance of having a Chief of
Staff that understands and cares. They say: Obama
cares.

The Southern Area of
The Links Leadership Summit
Under the leadership of Mrs. Mary F. Currie, The Links,
Inc.'s Southern Area convened on the First Coast last weekend for
its leadership summit at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront
Hotel. The summit provided training for officers and members to
expand their childhood obesity education and awareness initiative
in 74 chapters located in seven states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia,
Louisiana, North Carolina, Mississippi, and South Carolina) and
Nassau, Bahamas. In February, The Links, Inc. formed a relation-
ship with the American Heart Association (AHA) to educate the
African American community about childhood obesity, one of the
most serious public health threats facing our nation.
The Southern Area leadership team of twenty-four officers,
including: Mrs. Mary F. Currie (Atlanta, GA), area director;
Mrs. Eneid A. Francis, Esq. (New Orleans, LA), area vice direc-
tor; Mrs. Tamara Young Lee, Esq. (Tuskegee, AL), area secre-
tary; Mrs. Linda Dilworth, (Tallahassee, FL), area treasurer, and
Mrs. Katherine E. Wilson, Esq. (Jacksonville, FL), area financial
secretary, were joined by the Bold City Chapter, Links, Inc. mem-
bers, Mrs. Ruth Waters McKay, president Norma Solomon
White, conference coordinator and Josephine E. Fiveash Porter,
conference vice coordinator hosts of the May 13-17, 2009
Southern Area conference being held on the First Coast.
The Summit provided an excellent opportunity ,for partici-
pants to share their respective community service programs and to
focus more intensely on the Southern Area's Childhood Obesity
Initiative.

Jacksonville Links Hosts
Event Community Connections
Community Connections (formerly the YWCA), the
Jacksonville Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, Duval County
School Board and other community partners hosted a "Back to

the mentoring/tutoring/training program that the Jacksonville
Links have established with Community Connections and the
women in its transitional housing program. The event also
announced other community partners and their planned contribu-
tions to Community Connections for the coming year along with
giving the community partners and Community Connections' resi-
dents a chance to meet each other.
Not only was-this a "feel good" event with an emphasis on

A Proud Parent Shares Great News
Dr. Brenda Robinson
Simmons recently shared,
"I am a grateful and pleased
..,' mother today with great
news regarding my son
Coach Ben Simmons.
Ben's ninth grade literature
classes have recently been
recognized as one of the top
10 in the state in terms of
SN improvement in the number
Se' of students meeting and
exceeding standards on the
Coach Ben Simmons, Assistant Coach, Ninth Grade EOCT! For
Defensive Coordinator Tift County this honor, he received a
High School Blue Devils. really 'cool' certificate from
Kathy Cox and the school's undying gratitude for promoting stu-
dent achievement!
In addition to today's news, last week Ben presented me with
a plaque where he was named Georgia Athletic Coaches
Association Region 1AAAAA Coach of the Year for Track and
Field. Now as you know, his love is football and he is the Assistant
Coach, Defensive Coordinator for the Tift County High School
Blue Devils. He was given the task last year of being the Head
Track Coach during the Spring. His boys brought home the gold!
Again, I say, if there is any mother out there who despairs
about raising a boy alone, trtst God and know that He is in control
and He will guide our every footstep. To God be the glory for the
great things He has done"
What wonderful news of our own First Coast son.

SETME 2 20 THE TRAA


Signs Continued from A-1
that the housing crisis will also affect the voters because of the number of foreclo-
sures. He is asking that special effort be made for those who have lost their homes
in foreclosure.
Senator Hill and Congresswoman Brown said the theme of Florida voters should
be "It is all about us." If we don't vote and the necessary changes are not made in
this country, not only will be continue to suffer but the future of our children and
grand children will be seriously threaten.
Ms. Brown is asking that people make sure they are registered and that they get out
and vote early. She said she will again feed the voters. Once you vote, wear your
sticker and she will provide food and drinks.
A judge in West Palm Beach has ordered a second recount in a race in that coun-
ty where some ballots remain unaccounted after an initial 3,500 ballots went miss-
ing after election night.
Leon County has also stated that if other
problems surface, they will have a recount.
It appears, Florida is gearing up for voting Join the
issues. Some say, the state is trying to keep its Revolution!
reputation of eight years ago when hundred of Revolution ,
thousands votes were not counted or thrown
away.
This state is a big part of the 2008 race with BLACK
27 electoral votes for the White House.
McCain was in Jacksonville Monday speak- FOR
ing before a crowd of 5,000.
Obama is in Jacksonville Saturday. It is
anticipated his crowd will be substantially *
larger. J-
The polls show Florida as a toss up state. l
Remember, you as the voters have the last
word, so speak up. Get Registered. Go Vote.


was presented Thursday night but needs to be approved by Congress. Right now,
both parties are working to "save our country."
The stocks on Wall Street are at its lowest and the deficit is growing.
Even though the Democratics have been in control of Congress for just two
years, they still do not have the power needed under the Bush administration to
make the desired headway.
Some people may not realize the seriousness of this crisis. For example, a hospi-
tal worker advised us that her retirement plan through the hospital is through AIG.
If they had allowed AIG to fail, she would have lost her retirement benefits and her
ability to get her six year old in college.
McCain says that Obama sees the economic crisis as a political opportunity since
he has been in Washington for a shorter period. McCain has been in Washington
for 26 years and almost daily, he is now talking against the procedures he has sup-
ported for 26 years.
IT IS ALL ABOUT US THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES!


BE SURE YOU REGISTER

Dear Editor: I'm a little confused...

If you're a minority and you're selected for a job over more qualified candidates
you're a "token hire."
If you're a conservative and you're selected for a job over more qualified candi-
dates you're a "game changer."

Black teen pregnancies? A "crisis" in black America.
White teen pregnancies? A "blessed event."

If you grow up in Hawaii you're "exotic."
If you grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you're the quintessential
"American story."
Similarly, if you name you kid Barack you're "unpatriotic."
Name your kid Track, you're "colorful."
If you're a Democrat and you make a VP pick without fully vetting the individ-
ual you're "reckless."
If you are a Republican who doesn't fully vet, you are a "maverick."
If you spend 3 years as a community organizer growing your organization from
a staff of 1 to 13 and your budget from $70,000 to $400,000, then become the
first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive
that registers 150,000 new African American voters, spend 12 years as a consti-
tutional Law professor, then spend nearly 8 more years as a State Senator repre-
senting a district with over 750,000 people, becoming chairman of the state
Senate's Health
and Human Services committee, then spend nearly 4 years in the United States
Senate representing a state of nearly 13 million people, sponsoring 131 bills and
serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's
Affairs committees, you are woefully inexperienced.
If you spend 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with
less than 7,000 people, then spend 20 months as the governor of a state with
650,000 people, then you've got the most executive experience of anyone on
either ticket. You are the Commander in Chief of the Alaska military and are well
qualified to lead the nation should you be called upon to do so because your state
is the closest state to Russia.
If you are a Democratic male candidate who is popular with millions of people
you are an "arrogant celebrity" or "uppity".
If you are a popular Republican female candidate you are "energizing the base."
If you are a younger male candidate who thinks for himself and makes his own
decisions you are "presumptuous".
If you are an older male candidate who makes last minute decisions you refuse
to explain, you are a "shoot from the hip"maverick.
If you are a candidate with a Harvard law degree you are "an elitist-out of
touch" with the real America.
If you are a legacy (dad and granddad were admirals) graduated 5th from the
bottom ranking from Annapolis Navy Academy, with multiple disciplinary infrac-
tions you are a hero.
If you manage a multi-million dollar nationwide campaign, you are an "empty
suit."
If you are a part time mayor of a town of 7,000 people, you are an "experienced
executive."
If you go to a south side Chicago church, your beliefs are "extremist".
If you believe in creationism and don't believe global warming is man made,
you are "strongly principled".
If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured
wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
If you have been married to the same woman with whom you've been wed to for
19 years and raising 2 beautiful daughters, you're "risky".
If you're a black single mother of 4 who waits for 22 hours after her water
breaks to seek medical attention, you're an irresponsible parent, endangering the
life of your unborn child.
But if you're a white married mother who waits 22 hours, you're spunky.
If you're 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton, the right-wing press calls you "First
dog."
If you're a 17-year old pregnant unwed daughter of a Republican, the right-wing
press calls you "beautiful" and "courageous."
If you kill an endangered species, you're an excellent hunter.
If you have an abortion you're not a Christian, you're a murderer (forget about it
if it is the result of rape or incest.)
If you teach abstinence only in sex education, you get teen parents.
If you teach responsible age appropriate sex education, including the proper use
of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

NEW TAX CREDIT OPENS DOOR FOR FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS -At a
whopping 690 pages, the new Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 is by no
means light reading. Ironed out in part to stimulate home sales, the law gives first-time
buyers until July 1, 2009 to close on a house and get up to $7,500 sliced off their tax
bill. With the clock ticking, homebuilders and real estate agents are encouraging
renters and others who qualify including those who haven't owned a home in three
years to take action before time runs out. "The one-two punch of a slow housing
market and high inventory puts renters in a good position to get a great value on their
first home," said Martin Hernandez, national vice president of sales for Beazer
Homes. "Add the weight of the new tax credit, low interest rates and all the great
incentives being offered, and first-time homebuyers have an opportunity to get a lot
more home for their money."

Bills Turn Up Heat On Jaguars'

o e Cool Rgunning Game

By MICHAEL BONTS P
Sports Writer Fo w4

As the Jaguars prepare W .
for Sunday's road game
,against AFC South rival
Indianapolis they are not
only looking for their first
win, but an answer to an
anemic rushing offense.
And for the second
straight week, the Jaguars
running game was woeful in
a 20-16 loss to Buffalo at .t .
home before 65,167 at Maurice Jones-Drew crossing the goal line for a touchdown.
Jacksonville Municipal (Photos by Laurence Greene, Photographer for The Florida Star)
Stadium. Jacksonville's offensive front was depleted after injuries to center Brad Meester
and guards Vince Manuwai and Maurice Williams.
Milford Brown signed with the Jaguars last Tuesday and was inserted into the starting
lineup at right guard. Brown has played in 49 games with 44 starts in seven seasons.
"A tough, hard-fought game. Two weeks in a row we exerted a great deal of energy,
played a good football team in the AFC, and came up short," Jacksonville coach Jack Del
Rio said. "I thought our fans showed up today ready to rock and roll. We didn't give them
enough to cheer. about today."
S Fred Taylor ran for 49 yards on 14
llcarries. Maurice Jones-Drew had a rush-
S ing TD, but just 17 total yards in seven
plays. Jones Drew also caught three
Passes for 25 yards.
Jones-Drew has 27 career touch-
downs (23 rushing, 2 receiving, 2
returns), all in the last 31 games. His 22
career rushing touchdowns are the third-
most in team history.
The Jaguars tied the game on the
opening drive of the third quarter. Jones-
Drew had a nine-yard run on 4th-and-1,
-i and 15 yards were added on that play on
a face mask penalty to put the ball on the
Buffalo 31. After Jacksonville got to the
two-yard line, Jones-Drew scored.
Jacksonville quarterback David
Garrard went 17-for-28 for 165 yards
and was intercepted once.
"Overall, our execution wasn't that
h bad," Garrard said. "We threw the ball
-.-" 0'-"" ~pretty well and ran it pretty well. You
just have to have some guys make a big play and we didn't do it."
The Bills' Trent Edwards completed 20-of-25 passes for 239 yards and threw for the
winning score late in the fourth quarter.
"It was huge," Edwards said of the game-winning nine-play, 74-yard drive. "It was also
a great job by our defense to keep us in the game and get us the ball back. Our front five
blocked well on that drive, a lot of credit goes to those guys."
The Bills' Marshawn Lynch had 59 yards rushing and scored once on 19 carries. Fred
Jackson caught seven passes for 83 yards, while Lee Evans grabbed four balls for 77 yards.
Rookie James Hardy had his first career touchdown reception.
"We look at Fred and Marshawn as a valuable 1-2 punch," Buffalo coach Dick Jauron
said.
Buffalo made it a 10-3 game t ase
responded with a 21-yarder from field
goal from Rian Lindell with 6:21NE
remaining in the half, to make it a 10-
3 game. He later kicked a 45-yarder.t
Jacksonville's Josh Scobee
capped a 10-play drive with a 28-yard h
field goal. Jacksonville then pulled off -
a successful onside kick, which led to
a 50-yard field goal from Scobee.
Again the Jaguars couldn't reach the
end zoneand settled for a 39-yarder
from Scobee to make it 16-10 with less than a minute gone in the fourth quarter.
With just 24 seconds left, the Jaguars couldn't make a threat to score, and fumbled the
ball away to seal the Buffalo win.
Matt Jones led the Jacksonville receiving corps with five catches for 50 yards. Reggie
Williams had four receptions for 36 yards and Dennis Northcutt caught three passes for 36
yards. Williams surpassed 2,000 career-receiving yards with career totals of 158 receptions
for 2,011 yards.
THIS WEEK"S OPPONENT: The Colts (1-1), after falling behind by nine points at
halftime and by 15 points late in the third quarter, rallied for a dramatic, 18-15 victory over
the Minnesota at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome Sunday afternoon. Indianapolis
clinched the victory with kicker Adam Vinatieri's 47-yard field goal with three seconds
remaining.

By Michael Bonts
Sports writer

Freshman quarterback Josh McGregor threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns to lead
Jacksonville University to a 52-0 win over Campbell (0-3, 0-1 PFL) in the Dolphins' home
and Pioneer League opener Saturday.
"I'm really proud of how focused our team was today on their responsibilities and played
together as a team," said JU head coach Kerwin Bell. "This was a total team effort and it's
a great start to conference play."
JU (2-1, 1-0 in PFL) began the game on an eight play, 69-yard drive that covered 2:07
and was finished by the running of Rudell Small. His 14-yard touchdown run at the 12:53
mark of the first quarter opened an offensive barrage that was take a 45-0 lead at the half.
Small finished with 150 yards on 16 carries.
Elliott Finkley returned a punt 57 yards for his second TD of the season tying the
school record for a single-season. He also caught two passes for 34 yards including an 11-
yard score.
McGregor's is now tied for the fourth highest single-game passing output at JU and one
of just seven 300-yard passing games in school history. Eleven different Dolphins caught at
least one pass against Campbell, with Geavon Tribble, Chris Kuck and Josh Philpart lead-
ing the way with three each. Tommie Rogers led the team with 72 yards including a 45-yard
TD.
Tremaine Mack also returned an interception 37 yards for his first career score. It was
the first interception returned for a TD for the Dolphins since Omar Platt's 41-yard return
against Davidson in 2004.
Josh Hostetler added a 33- yard field goal. Mack's interception return for a TD came less
than minute later and Greg Louisaint ended the half on a 23-yard scoring pass from
McGregor.
Keith Dawson's 64-yard run to end the third quarter and gave JU a 52-0 lead.
Matt Vollono threw for 149 yards and two interceptions for the Camels. Campbells'
Reshaun Brown, who had 40 yards rushing in the first half, finished with 66 yards on the
ground. Campbell linebacker Milton Brown led both teams with his seven tackles. He also
had a sack and a pass defense.
The Dolphins pulled off their first shutout since a 30-0 victory over Austin Peay in 2003
and only the second in school history. JU's defense wasn't the only records set.
The offense racked up 621 yards, smashing the former school record of 585 set against
Butler in 2005.
The Dolphins are back on the road Saturday when they face UNC-Pembroke (2-1) on
the road. Kickoffis set for 1 p.m. The Braves lost to Wingate 23-16. Cory Smith threw for
156 yards and a touchdown on 14-of-23 passing, but the Braves got 62 yards on 26 carries
