The Jacksonville Rally for
Obama was the city's largest
and most orderly political
rally in history.
They waited patiently to see
and hear him, and as shown
above, some had the ability
to touch and hug him.


By Dennis Wade, The Florida Star/The Georgia Star, photo by Fi Powell
The numbers are in and from all reports, the Obama rally was a huge success; out performing the McCain
Jacksonville rally by four to one; 20,000 to 5,000 attendees. Unlike the McCain rally, the Obama rally attracted a
diverse crowd:
The 20,000 plus attendees included 8,000 that had to stand outside of the park when the Fire Department closed
the gates because the park's capacity had been reached.
The McCain, rally, held at Veterans Memorial Stadium, was attended by the current Governor Charlie Cnrit, for-
mer Governors Jeb Bush, Bob Martinez, Senator Mel Martinez and Mayor Peyton. MORE Continued on A-7

The Obama First Coast Rally
"I sa% more than a rall\. I sa\\ the stiff of a bold. ne%\
political alliance." writes Florida Times Union Editorial
Columnist Tansaa \\eathersbee. The di ersit, of the rallI
attendees \,.as truly the Amrnerican "Melting Pot'. Supporters
Siting to see and hear the Democratic Partm's Presidential
Nominee Senator Barack Obama armed earl\. stood in
long lines, and waited for hours to be a part of history. This
.1ould the first time an African-American would d stand
before a First Coast audience as the presidential nominee of
;a national political party. The atmosphere was one of excite-
ment and awe. Personally I could not keep still! And when
he arrived I was able not only to take his photos myself, I
'was also able to shake his hand. The Barack Obama smile is
capable of melting the coldest heart.
I The planners of this rally thought of everyone and
everything. There was reserved spaced for the disabled and
the elderly. They had water for everyone. There were volun-
teers to register prospective voters with pledge brochures for
attendees to commit to being registered, voting early and to
,volunteer. The energy was electric! The political rallies I
have attended during my lifetime pale in comparison to the
Barack Obama Rally of September 20, 2008 on the First
!Coast.
If you have not registered to vote, you have only a few
more days to do so. If you are registered,' verify your regis-
tration and then vote early. We have the power to elect
Barack Obama as the next president of the United States.
WE MUST MAKE SURE WE EACH DO OUR PART
TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Even American Idol finalist Phil Stacey couldn't improve the attendance for McCain
in Jacksonville. Governor Palin did not attend .
On Friday, prior to Saturday's rally, Jacksonville attracted the largest volunteer
turnout, to date, with over 800 people signing up as volunteers at the IBEW hall,
when only 350 were needed. The Obama's rally was, without a doubt, the largest
crowd ever to attend an event at Metropolitan Park.
The Obama rally reminded me of the 1995 Million Man March in Washington D.C.
that I attended. I witnessed the same kind of enthusiasm. But more importantly, the
Obama rally, like the Million Man March, had no incidents and no arrests.
There were two planes that flew over Metropolitan Park towing banners that said
"This is McCain-Palin country." They were loudly booed by the highly charged
crowd.
Congratulation to the City of Jacksonville, the attendees, the Obama organizers, the
Obama volunteers and a special thanks to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and the
Jacksonville Fire Department for a job extremely well done.

Letter to the Editor


Dear Editor:
As you consider your vote here are things to look at:
Women's Rights:
John McCain has always been against a woman's right to choose. By picking Sarah
Palin he intensifies this position. He wants Roe v. Wade overturned and would
appoint Supreme Court and Federal Judges who support this position. Sarah Palin is
against a woman's right to choose, even in cases of rape or incest. While Mayor of
Wasilla women who reported being raped had to purchase their own rape kit at a cost
of $300 to $1,200. This kit is essential in proving rape. Alaska has a rate of rape,
incest and sexual assault double the rest bf the. country. In response to this policy in
Wasilla, the Alaskan Legislature passed a law requiring this kit be provided for
women.
In contrast in 1994 Joe Biden authored the most comprehensive federal law against
sexual abuse in our history. But in October,: 2007 John McCain voted against Biden's
legislation for funding rape kits. McCain has voted for Viagra being covered by
health insurance but against contraception coverage.
Veteran's Affairs:
As a Vet with more than 20 years of naval service you would think John McCain
would be a strong supporter of our vets, but his actions show otherwise.
HE HAS VOTED TO OPPOSE OR TABLE:
20 million dollars for Veteran's health care facilities
322 million dollars for safety equipment for our troops in Iraq
430 million dollars for Veterans' outpatient care
One billion dollars in new equipment for the National Guard
One billion 500 million dollars in additional Veterans' medical care, paid for by clos-
ing tax loopholes (in one vote)
One billion 800 dollars (in another vote)
Most recently McCain opposed the Webb-Hagel GI Bill, even though the Veterans
of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Disabled Veterans of America, the
Blinded Veteran's Association and the Paralyzed Veterans of America were for it.
The Disabled Veterans Association gives McCain a 20% favorable rating Obama
80% favorable.
Economic Judgment:
In the 1980s as one of the Keating 5, McCain was involved in necessitating the
Savings and Loan bail out. He supports a form of privatizing Social Security and
putting part of our Social Security in the Stock Market.
These actions should help you decide on November 4th.

Julia Fenner, Former Lance Corporal, U.S. Marines
Paul Zamarian, Attorney Sonoma County, Californiia

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 itew
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."

Your Weekly


HOROSCOPE

September 27, 2008 October 3, 2008


v-I


ARIES
March 21st thru April 19th
The beginning of the week is very likely
to be a false start for most signs. For
Aries folk this false start will probably
revolve around romance and matters of
the heart. Just when you'll begin to think
you have everything sorted, done and
dusted, along will come another ripple to
get you thinking. However, answers and
solutions won't materialize just yet!
Your best day this week is Saturday!



TAURUS
April 20th thru May 20th
The start of the week looks very relaxed, but
the midweek planets indicate that you'll need
to stay focused on your regular obligations
amid various distractions. What is most likely
to cause a commotion for you, from
Wednesday onwards, is romance. It is possible
that one rather intense individual will be the
root cause of a great deal of confusion! Your
best day this week is Thursday!


GEMINI
May 21st thru June 21st
A little bit of staying power may be nec-
essary this week; work related matters
require practical solutions rather than
creative talent. It could be a case of
either having to go back to the drawing
board or recognizing that you've hit a bit
of a dead- end. From Wednesday the
planets are likely to draw your attention
to something you maybe overlooked!
Your best day this week is Monday!



CANCER
June 22nd thru July 22nd
You may be tempted to rest on your lau-
rels this week; fairly relaxed influences
at the start may have you investing your
time and energy into matters that actual-
ly require very little attention. From
Wednesday onwards, though, you're
likely to undergo a subtle change in your
attitude, when something galvanizes you
into making a fresh start! Your best day
this week is Friday!


LEO
July 23rd thru Aug 22nd


Communications in general could go a
little haywire from Wednesday: snippets
of information at the start may prove to
be unreliable or taken out of context
towards the end. It is a good week to
question what you hear and to delve
beneath the surface: the easiest option is
to take things at face value; however,
this won't necessarily be the best option!
Your best day this week is Sunday!



VIRGO
Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
Cash matters are likely to fluctuate
quite wildly this week, which starts
on a high, veers into a slump, but
begins to lift again as the weekend
approaches. Quick money-making
schemes will have their drawbacks.
From Wednesday onwards you'd be
wise to check that every 't' has been
crossed and every 'i' dotted when it
comes to your finances! Your best
day this week is Monday!


f LIBRA
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd
You'll need to be quite strict with your-
self right from the start of this week. The
planetary emphasis will bring out all
those Libran traits that are great for
socializing, but less great for work or
school related matters. Duties or assign-
ments shouldn't be pushed aside and
avoid power struggles with your peers:
don't assume that you know best! Your
best day this week is Thursday!


SCORPIO
Oct 23rd thru Nov, 21st


While most signs seem to be on a go-
slow, a smattering of influences suggests
that youi day will be the opposite of
sluggish. An 'I can do it' attitude may be
counterproductive. Taking on too much
in the morning may cause you a
headache by the late afternoon, when
common sense creeps back in!


I SAGITTARIUS
Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
Friendships will be ripe for some posi-
tive changes at the start of the week, but
this opportunity may be somewhat lost,
thanks to initial money worries. Those
cash worries should ease by Wednesday,
but after that, there is a tendency to keep
things muddling along. A second oppor-
tunity to push matters and to make those
changes will come again next week!
Your best day this week is Saturday!



CAPRICORN
Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
You'll have the backing of one very
powerful planet to guide you through
this week's ups and downs. You'll be
similar to a swan: all poise and grace on
the surface, but paddling like fury under-
neath. No one else should notice, except
perhaps on Wednesday, when everything
seems to go wrong! Work or school is
likely to be the most challenging area!
Your best day this week is Saturday!


[S3 AQUARIUS
S Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
There is, in this week's chart, a sense of
looking backwards rather than forwards,
which becomes more apparent on
Wednesday. Perhaps you recently
enjoyed a major success or felt a real
connection. Don't try to reproduce that
experience; concentrate on the now
rather than the then. This week has its
own merits, especially when it comes to
romance! Your best day this week is
Tuesday!



PISCES
Feb 19th thru March 20th
This week's influences are a little
strained, but a hypersensitive mood
could have you feeling every little bump
and every little blip far more intensely
than most. If a plan starts to unravel or
needs some reworking, then regard it as
a fresh opportunity. Try not to take
things on a personal level; keep work
and relationships separate; don't let one
impinge on the other! Your best day this
week is Wednesday!

A TFrom Actual Police Reports

Did You Hear About?...





BULGE IN PANTS -An officer observed "J"
(suspect) riding a bicycle without white front light
at 1000 Spearing Street. The police officer then
attempted to stop the suspect but he continued to
ride his bike approximately 200 feet away from
where police first observed him. After several ver-
bal commands to stop, the suspect finally com-
plied, and the officer made 'contact with him.
Police asked the suspect if he had any weapons or
drugs on him and he stated "no." Police then asked
the suspect for consent to search him for weapons and drugs which he agreed to. In
the suspect's right front pocket police found a large roll of approximately $406.00.
Then they felt a bulge in between the suspect's pants and his underwear in the mid-
dle of his waistline. As they attempted to grab the bulge the suspect snatched away
causing the two officers to take the suspect to the ground. The suspect continued to
struggle and refused to comply with verbal commands to place his hands behind his
back. After a brief struggle the suspect was arrested and transported to the station.
The bulge in the suspect's waist line turned out to be a bhaggie of crack cocaine.
SDEADLY U-TURN Police Officers were
K dispatched to 7871 Austin Rd. in reference to
a dispute. Upon arrival, Police met with Ms.
L (victim) who said that her neighbor, S (sus-
pect) attempted to run her down with his vehi-
cle. The victim said that she had just got done
walking her dog with her friend, Ms. H (wit-
ness). She said that she saw the vehicle make
a "u-turn" and drove back on the city ease-
ment towards her. The victim's mailbox is
located on the city easement which is directly
in front of the victim's residence. The victim
said that she hurried out of the way of the vehicle which drove past her. She said that
she saw the suspect driving the vehicle. She said that the suspect said, "no one's
watching you know you "b***h" and drove away. Furthermore, the victim said that
the suspect drove the vehicle back around and right past the victim saying "I know
where you work b***h, I'll get you back." The victim also said that there has been
a prior dispute between her and an unknown friend of the suspect. Police spoke with
Ms. H (witness) via telephone. She made the same statement as the victim in refer-
ence to the vehicle. In addition, witness H who does not know the suspect said that
she heard the suspect call the victim a "b***h." Witness H said that when the vehi-
cle came back around and drove past the victim, she heard the suspect say to the vic-
tim, "I'm coming to your job and I'll meet you at the golf course b**h," before driv-
ing off. Police spoke with the victim's neighbor, Mr. S (witness) who did not
observe the vehicle attempting to strike the victim. However, witness S said that he
did see the suspect drive the vehicle past the victim saying "I know where you work
b***h and I'll get you back." He said that the suspect drove away. A check of the
tag revealed that the vehicle belonged to Mr. J (subject). The efforts through the
officer to make contact with Mr. J were negative. He observed that the street light-
ing in the area was not poorly lit. The officer also observed what appeared to be .tire
marks on the city easement where the victim,
said that the vehicle drove on towards her.
There were no visible injuries to the victim.
The officer will attempt to make contact with
the suspect and Mr. J. Police patrol will fol-
low up.
JUVENILES AND FIREARMS The
Crime Free Housing Unit was patrolling the
Eureka Gardens Apartments and surrounding
area. While on patrol, the incident vehicle
was observed being operated with an expired
license tag. A traffic stop was conducted and
the driver was detained. The investigation revealed that the driver did not have a
valid driver's license as it was suspended since 2006. He was subsequently arrest-
ed and secured without incident.
A search of the vehicle incident to the driver's arrest revealed the listed shotgun.
The firearm was on the passenger side in between the kick panel and door frame.
Additionally live ammunition was found in the weapon and in the vehicle.
All of the subject's in the vehicle were detained pending further investigation. The
listed suspect was interviewed separately. He advised that he had no knowledge of
the firearm being in the vehicle. He went on to say the other occupants of the vehi-
cle must have pushed it underneath his seat. He further stated that if the other occu-
pantits of the vehicle said that it was his, then they were lying. He informed the offi-
cers that he is a convicted felon and knows that he is not supposed to be near any
firearms.Two of the other passengers in
the vehicle were juveniles. None of the
suspect's would offer any information
as to how the firearm found its way into
,' >the vehicle or who was responsible for
*/ II it. A check through records and identi-
'i fiction revealed that this suspect was

, Late FG Lift Ville
Past Indianai s


By MICHAEL BONTS, Sports Writer
A 51-yard field goal by Josh Scobee in the final
seconds gave the Jaguars a 23-12 win over the AFC
South rival Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in
Indianapolis. Scobee also hit from 26 and 21 yards.
The Jaguars improved to 2-1 as they beat the
f Colts on the road for the first time since 2004.
Avoiding a 0-3 start, the Jaguars host winless
Houston this Sunday, another division foe.
"It was a tremendous AFC South battle," said
S Jaguars heaA coach Jack Del Rio. "I thought our
~ guys came in prepared to give a fight. They came in
here and responded the way they have so many
times."
Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard was
16-of-22 for 167 yards. Matt Jones finished with
--. five receptions for 43 yards and became the first
player since Jimmy Smith in 2004 to open a season
with at least five-plus receptions in the first three
games. Jones has five-plus receptions in four
.. straight regular season games dating back to last
.. season.
S The Jaguars rushed for a season-high 236
."'' : yards, the seventh-most in team history. Fred Taylor
.i. ... ran for 121 yards on 26 carries. Maurice Jones-
Jaxon D'Ville leading the team to the field.- Drew rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown on 19
(Photo by Laurence Greene, Photographer plays Rashean Mathis also picked off quarterback
(Photo by Florida Star) Peyton Manning and returned the pick 61 yards for
for The Florida Star) a TD.
Joseph Addai's TD put the hosts ahead 21-20 with 1:07 to play. The Colts defense held for three
downs. But, on 4th-and-1 from the 29-yard- line, a Garrard incompletion turned into a first down after
a pass interference call.
Garrard hit Montell Owens for 10 yards then Marcedes Lewis for nine to the Colts' 41. Mike
Walker caught an eight-yard pass. Scobee kicked the ball through the uprights for a 23-21 lead with
four seconds left in the contest.
"Nothing easy about what just transpired," Del Rio said. "I think you are talking about a good
football team, loud environment, very difficult circumstances."
The Jaguars had an 18-play drive in the fourth quarter that lasted a team-record 12:18. The pre-
vious mark was 11:44 in 2007 at Denver. In addition, the Jaguars had the third-most time of posses-
sion in team history at 41:35.
"Obviously, very disappointing game," said Colts head coach Tony Dungy. "We didn't have the
ball very much in the second half. We have got to play better."
Manning completed just 15-of-29 passes for 216 yards, one score and two interceptions Addai
gained 78 yards and a pair of TDs on 16 rushes, Reggie Wayne caught three balls for 74 yards and
Marvin Harrison had four receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown.
GAME NOTEBOOK: Jaguars LB Daryl Smith recorded his first sack of the season in the first
quarter, the 11.5 of his career ... DB Scott Starks saw his first action of the season. Jacksonville long
snapper Joe Zelenka extended his team record with his 115th consecutive game played. Scobee has
scored in 44 consecutive games dating back to 2005, which is the second-longest streak in team his-
tory. Mike Hollis holds the team record at 67 games The Colts have not begun a season this poorly
since dropping their first four games in 1998. Despite the setback, the Colts have won 11 of the 15 all-
time meetings, including five of the last seven...Colts tight end Dallas Clark left the field with 2:22
left in fourth quarter after absorbing a shoulder-to-head hit from Jags cornerback Drayton Florence.
Jacksonville outgained Indianapolis 403-325, which included a 236-114 margin on the ground.
THIS WEEK'S OPPONENT: Tennessee's defense held twice on fourth-and-goal down the
stretch, as the Titans beat Jacksonville's next opponent, the Houston Texans, 31-12. Houston QB Matt
Schaub was intercepted three times and failed to throw a touchdown pass on 17-of-37 passing for 188
yards. Steve Slaton gained 116 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown. Owen Daniels caught four balls
for 71 yards for the beleaguered Texans, (0-2) who are still searching for their first win after getting

By MICHAEL BONTS, Sports Writer for The Florida Star
PEMBROKE, N.C. The Braves scored 13 points in the final
quarter to pullout a 22-21 upset over Jacksonville University in
front of crowd'of 3,578 at Grace P. Johnson Stadium.
Taylor Baskett's 25-yard field goal with 1:14 left in the game
capped the comeback and gave University of North Carolina-
Pembroke (3-1) its first lead since early in the second quarter.
"We took a big step backwards on offense today," said JU head
coach Kerwin Bell. "We let them hang around and you can't do that
when you're on the road against a team like this. You've got to give
them credit because they never quit and took advantage of their
opportunities."
Rudell Small was a bright spot for the JU offense, totaling 96
yards rushing and two touchdowns. Small rushed 27 times for the
Dolphins (2-2) who managed just 90 yards of total offense in the
second half, including just 44 through the air.
UNCP took an early 3-0 lead after Baskett converted a 20-yard
field goal just a minute into the second quarter.
JU quarterback Josh McGregor threw for 118 yards and a first
half touchdown, but was sacked six times and threw three intercep-
tions. The Dolphins turned the ball, over five times and held the ball
for less than four minutes in the fourth quarter.
The victory gave UNCP its second win this season over an
opponent from the NCAA's Division I Football Championship
Subdivision after defeating -Davidson, 21-9, at home two weeks
ago. UNCP atoned for a 55-10 loss in Jacksonville last season.
"I am very excited for our team to be able to come back in the
second half and score 19-straight points. I would have loved 20, but
Baskett made up for it with the two field goals after his extra point
didn't go in. I talked to our team all week long about believing and
trusting in each other and the system," said Braves head coach Pete
Shinnick.

son, 20th Anniversary S eas.

By Michael Bonts,

Celebrating its 20th
Anniversary season, the Orlando a
Magic unveiled new uniforms
Tuesday.
The new uniforms, which
were designed in partnership by
the Magic, Adidas and the NBA,
celebrate the past by returning to

Anniversary uniforms were

"With this being our 20th Buddy Dyer and Orlando Magic All-Star and Olympic gold

change allows us to pay tribute
to our history with the return to pinstripes, as well as look forward to our future with a modern
approach," Magic COO Alex Martins said. "It has been 20 fantastic seasons here in Orlando and we
look forward to making more history in the future in our new uniforms."
The new uniforms are the fourth in the 20-year history of the team. While white home and Magic
blue road colors remain in tact, the design incorporates several elements of the previous three looks.
The most dramatic link to the team's history is the return of pinstripes, which were part of the
team's first uniform identity.Orlando's NBA franchise since 1989. On the court, Orlando has won
three division championships (1995, 1996, 2008), had four 50-plus win seasons, and won the Eastern
Conference title in 1995.
The Orlando Magic is also the developer of the new downtown Events Center which will compete
to host major national events, concerts and family shows. Opening in the fall of 2010, the facility will
be operated by the City of Orlando and owned by the Central Florida Community.
Magic ticket highlights for 2008-09 include: 7,569 seats priced $25 or under per game; a $27 lower
bowl ticket; and tickets priced at $10 per game. For ticket information log on to orlandomagic.com or

Bowden Coaches No. 500 When FSU Plays Colorado
By MICHAEL BONTS, Sports Writer
Florida State's Bobby Bowden reaches a milestone against
Colorado Saturday at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium when he will
coach his 500th career collegiate football game versus the
Buffaloes. Bowden is set to become only the third coach in college
football history to coach in 500 or more games. Bowden is undefeat-
ed versus Colorado (2-0).
The Seminoles (2-1) and Bowden have fared well versus Big 12
members. FSU is 30-13 all-time versus the conference and Bowden
is 21-6. Only two schools in.the Big 12 have ever defeated a Bobby Bowden coached
Seminole team. One is Oklahoma and the other is Nebraska. The Buffalos come into the
game undefeated at 3-0.
Under Bobby Bowden, the Seminoles are 8-1 .in Jacksonville. Overall FSU is 9-1-1 all-
time when playing in Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. The Seminoles have won six games
in a row after making the short trip east on 1-10 since a loss to Southern Miss and Brett
Favre in 1989. FSU b6at Alabama 21-14 in last year's River City Showdown. Kickoffis set
for 3:30.
