Early Voting Larger Than
Expected, Had Problems
Congresswoman Brown was the first in line for the
voters who stood in line at the Supervisor of Elections
Office in Gateway on day one of "early voting" but did
encounter problems. She had to wait for almost one
half hour for her vote to be certified and counted
because the machines were not operating properly. She
asked voters not to be discouraged and to please wait to
make sure your vote is counted. There were 11,970 vo
ters on day one of early voting in Duval County.

Who Runs the U. S. Senate?
The Vice President of the U.S.' main duty is to replace
the president if he is no longer capable of serving either
through death or some other reason. When an 8-year
old asked Gov. Palin what does a vice president do, her
reply was: "runs the Senate." This is not true. The
vice president can only vote in the senate if there is a
tie and normally appears in the Senate for ceremonies.

ADVEI


So far, lacking an
"October Surprise" that will
dramatically turn the elec-
tion in their favor,
Republicans are gradually
shifting their attention from
William Ayers, "an old
washed up terrorist in the
1960s, to the Association of
Community Organizations
for Reform Now, better
known as ACORN.
At the GOP national con-
vention in St, Paul, former
presidential candidate Rudy
Giuliani and Vice
Presidential nominee Sarah
Palin took delight in mock-
ing Barack Obama as a
"community organizer."
Trailing in most major polls
and connected to George W.
Bush like Velcro, John
McCain has stepped up the
attack in the final presiden-
tial debate by linking
Obama to ACORN. McCain
claimed that ACORN "is
now on the verge of maybe
perpetrating one of the
greatest frauds in voter his-
tory in this country, maybe
destroying the fabric of
democracy."
In an attempt to tarnish
ACORN, McCain and his
GOP allies are hoping that
we will not be able to see the.
forest for the acorns. But
ACORN is no stranger 'to
poor people or African-
Americans. As Maude Hurd
- the African-American
president of ACORN -
noted: "ACORN has been
building organizations and
developing leadership


among low- and moderate-
income residents in neigh-
borhoods throughout the
United States for 38 years."
The independent
FactCheck.org noted,
"Neither ACORN nor its
employees have been, found
guilty of, or even charged
with, casting fraudulent
votes. What a McCain-Palin
Web ad calls 'voter fraud' is
actually voter registration
fraud. Several ACORN can-
vassers have been found
guilty of faking registration
forms and others are being
investigated. But the evi-
dence that has surfaced so
far shows they faked forms
to get paid for work they
didn't do, not to stuff ballot
boxes."
Julian Bond, chairman of
the NAACP, was even more
pointed. "No one believes
registration authorities will
let 'Mickey Mouse' or 'Elvis
Presley' vote," he said at a
press conference called to
support ACORN. "But sure-
ly some partisans believe
that they can prevent quali-
fied voters from registering
or casting their legitimate
votes, that they can frighten
voters away from the polls,
and that they can win elec-
tions through their own
fraud and deceit and trick-
ery." Bond added, "We think
the American people are too
smart for that."
ACORN makes its own
case on its Web site,
www.acom.org:
Among ,the "key facts"
" 7 7. 1-7 M


listed by ACORN:
In order to help 1.3 mil-
lion people register to vote,
we hired more than 13,000
registration assistance work-
ers. As with any business or
agency that operates at this
scale, there are always some
people who want to get paid
without really doing the job,
or who aim to defraud their
employer.
Any large voter registra-
tion operation will have a
small percentage of workers
who turn in bogus registra-
tion forms. Their goal clear-
ly is not to cast a fraudulent
vote. It is simply to defraud
their employer, ACORN, by
getting a paycheck without
earning it. ACORN is the
victim of this fraud not the
perpetrator.
In nearly every case that
has been reported it was
ACORN that discovered the
bad forms, and called them
to the attention of election
authorities, putting .the
forms in a package that iden-
tified them in writing as sus-
picious, encouraging elec-
tion officials to investigate,
and offering to help with
prosecutions.
This has nothing to do
with 'voter fraud' nothing
at all to do with anyone try-
ing to cast an extra vote.
There has never been a sin-
gle reported instance in
which bogus registration
forms have led to anyone
voting improperly. To do
that, they would have to
show up at the polls, prove
their identity as all first-time
registrants must, and risk
jail. The people who turned
in these forms did so not
because they wanted an
extra vote, but because they

didn't care enough to make
sure eligible people got to
vote at all.
The goals of the people
orchestrating these attacks
are to distract ACORN from
helping people vote and to
justify massive voter sup-
pression. That's the real
voter fraud; the noise about
a small fraction of the forms
ACORN has turned in is
meant to get the press and
public take their eyes off the
real threat, while those hurl-
ing the charges are stealing
people's right to vote in
broad daylight. They have
already tried to prevent Ohio
from registering voters at its
early voting sites. In
Michigan, they planned to
use foreclosure notices to
challenge thousands of vot-
ers. And if this year is like
past years, they are prepar-
ing to use this so-called
voter fraud to justify mas-
sive challenges to voters in
minority precincts on
Election Day.
A report by Project Vote
put it best: "The claim that
voter fraud threatens the
integrity of American elec-
tions is itself a fraud."

"There 's Always Something Happening
A Tribute to Mrs. Vera W. Davis
"We love you not only for what you are,
but for what we are when we are with you. a .


Most recently Mrs. Vera W. Davis was featured
when one of the honorees for the 2007 Women's
History Month Poster. At that time I wrote: "Retired
supervisor of curriculum Development for Duval
County Public Schools, Mrs. Vera Davis (a treasured
mentor of this writer) has had a history of being 'first'
in many arenas. She was the first female to win
a full scholarship through the National Elks
Organization, one of the first reading teachers in
Duval County Public Schools, one of three African
American to join the League of Women Voters and
the first African-American female high school
principal. Our paths crossed when she was the
dynamic and inspiring Y-Teen director for the A.L.
Lewis Branch YWCA. We learned so much about
being ladies under her tutelage. Her past and pres-
ent affiliations include Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority
and the National Council of Negro Women. Her
awards include the Governor's Challenge Program.
This was truly a well over due recognition and I per-
sonally appreciate .the Commission's not forgetting
such an influential person in the lives of young peo-
ple on the First Coast."
My friend, mentor, sorority sister and 'cuz' Mrs.
Vera W. Davis passed away last week and my heart is
so sad. Mrs. Davis had been an influencing factor in
my life for over fifty years. She and along with her
husband Dr. Nathaniel Davis have been there for our
family for both the 'highs' and the 'lows'.
Farewell my friend and thanks for all the good
you did for others during your journey here on earth.
How grateful we each are that Mrs. Vera Wooden
Davis was in our lives. We each are truly blessed!

sons Curtis, Nathaniel and Charles along with his
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brother, Sollie Mitchell.

Erica Hubbard: The Definition of


Beauty and Focus


By Rych McCain
Photo: ABC Family
Network
She definitely garners
attention whether she is strut-
ting down the red carpet at
movie premieres, club pro-
motions and civic events or
just popping into a press con-
ference casually outfitted in
sexy tight designer jeans.
Actress Erica Hubbard is no
stranger to turning a few
heads but she is also educat-
ed, politically astute and has
vigilant control over her
career and goals. The
Chicago born and reared
Hubbard completed her BA
degree from Columbia
College in three years. She
started her acting career local-
ly at age nine doing commer-
cials for McDonald's,
Reebok, Sears, Kellogg's and
others. Hubbard co-hosted a
local Chicago TV show on
WPWR for children and
teens titled, Up 'N Running,
that won a local Emniy
Award and won her a
"Service To America award
from The National
Association of Broadcasters.





By Rych McCain
Condolences:
Our prayers, best
wishes and good thoughts
go out the family, friends
and fans of two giants in
the black entertainment
community who made
their transitions for our
ancestors. First was Levi
Stubbs, lead singer of
The Four Tops, the leg-
endary Motown Records
super vocal group. He
died in his sleep at his
Detroit home on October
17, 2008, after several
years of illness at age 71.
The Four Tops biggest
hits included; "Can't
Help Myself," "Reach
Out" and "Standing in the
Shadows of Love."
Second is the ever
defiant comedian/actor
Rudy Ray Moore aka
Dolelmite. He died on
October 17, 2008 due to
complications from dia-
betes at age 81. Moore
began his career as a
stand up comedian in the
late 1960's and gained
international notoriety
after co-writing and star-
ring in the 1975, signa-
ture blaxploitation film
"Dolemite." Moore took
his "XXX" rated humor
to high commercial
heights.

Currently, Hubbard is co-
starring as Cassie Sutton on
the top rated ABC Family
Network TV drama "Lincoln
Heights. This season's debut
had its highest rated viewer-
ship of its three seasons on the
air. The show airs on
Tuesday at 8 p.m. (check
your local listings).
Hubbard's character Cassie is
involved in an interracial rela-
tionship with her boyfriend
Charles (played by Robert
Adamson). Does her on
screen romance elicit ques-
tions about her real life dating
preferences? Hubbard
responds without hesitation,
"Yes, yes; I get a lot of feed-
back on what do I think about
being in an interracial rela-
tionship and have I done it
before. They want to know if
I date African-American men,
how often I date Caucasian
men. A lot of people e-mail
me or if they myspace me,
they send messages on my
facebook asking those type of
questions." What does she say
to them? Hubbard laughs,
"Once I did date an Italian
guy when I was in high
school so I channel that expe-


STATE FARM


INSURANCE
'a'


rience into casting in
Charles's relationship
because Charles reminds me
of my ex that I dated in high
school."
Hubbard continues and
observes, "When I date, I
don't look at a person for
their ethnicity, I look at it
from their heart. You know, if
he can treat me good then
hey, I'm your girl. I'll be your,
girl friend! But besides all of
that racial stuff, you see a lot
of that going on right now
with Barack Obama. Really,
to me it makes no difference.
I want to see if you have good
morals, good values, what
your character is like besides
all of this stuff and we need to
get over it." *
This show is a rare bird in
terms of its content. If the
opportunity to play this kind
of role does not come again
in a good amount of time,
will Hubbard make moves to
create her own roles with her
own projects? Hubbard con-
templates, "This situation is
pretty deep. "Lincoln
Heights" does cover some
deep issues and topics with
their storylines. I think there


are characters that can go
even deeper. I grew up on the
south side of Chicago in a
household of drug addicts.
You had to hide your purse
under you pillow and write
your name on your food in
the refrigerator and it still
may not be there and then all


kinds of people knocking on
your window all times of
night because they have to do
what they have to do in the
house. Yeah, I grew up with
all of that so I want to explore
that topic with more gritty
type material from growing
up in that lifestyle. And yes, I
have my own production
company."
It is truly amazing and
admirable that a young sistah
could rise out of such sur-
roundings to become college-
educated and successful in
Hollywood. Hubbard shrugs
it off and says quite matter-
of-factly, "I just wanted
something better in life."

When the Southern Women's Show hit
Jacksonville's Prime Osborn Convention Center
on October 16 through the 19, it left more than
happy women in its wake, it also left dollars
behind in the community with a variety of charity
opportunities at the show.
The highly anticipated annual event designed
specifically for women came back bigger than
ever to celebrate its 21st year, taking over every
square inch of space in the convention center.
The consumer show featured areas of interest
to women, from fashion to health & fitness to trav-
el to home lifestyle. It featured multicultural fash-
ion shows, celebrity appearances, cooking demon-
strations, beauty tips, health screenings, decorat-
ing ideas and personal growth opportunities all
tailored especially for busy women.
What was new and most impressive was the
multicultural fashion show, "Lights, Camera,
Action, Fashion." The show was sponsored by The
Florida Star and managed, taught, and organized
by Mosaic Modeling and Talent Management
Company. The organizers of Southern Women Show voiced this
fashion show as their best, which was held at 5 on Friday and at
11 on Saturday morning. In fact, the organizers requested a
"repeal" for next year. and the ladies agreed to do so
Other outstanding events included Dancing with the Stars.
Jacksonmille Firefighters Car\\alk and Catlihn's Closet. The eIent
was %well attended b\ thousands of \\omen and a few hundred
men. The Southern Women Sho\\ an annual e ent that is worth
waiting for.

ASK Deanna! is a an auvic cuclumn tunown juo a t s K
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!__ i ,
Dear Deanna!
I'm 34 and date older women. I have no motives behind my pref-
erence. I simply appreciate these women that have old school
values. Recently I have fallen for a younger woman but I find
myself dealing with a lot of frustrations. She's not where I feel
she should be mentally when it comes to friends, money, and
marriage. Am I comparing her to my past relationships or am I
just set in old school ways?
Regretting On-line Reader
Dear Regretting:
You're very mature and you've learned a lot from the older women you've dated and
that's a good thing. With your age, wisdom and old school mentality a small group of
younger women can only offer you visual and physical stimulation that becomes old
after a while. If you want more stability and structure stick with what you know unless
you have time to be stressed trying to teach a young girl new tricks.
Dear Deanna!
I disagree with teen dating and feel kids shouldn't have dates until they finish high
school All of the young teens in our family are dating and they are all a mess. The girls
are going through stress, crying and wearing a lot of make-up. The boys want to be
thugs and are going through many girls for the notches on their belt. I'm viewed as the
old maid in the family but my children are stress free because I don't let them date.
When is the right age to begin dating?
Anonymous San Bernardino, CA
Dear Anonymous:
With a good foundation teens can successfully have friends of the opposite sex.
Regardless of the word dating or relationship, the younger generation needs to learn
bonding and social skills as they interact with each other. Juniors and seniors do well
with dating becausetheir life skills are becoming sharp and defined. There is no set age,
but you need to loosen your strings because when your kids get out there, they may get
wild and cause you heartbreak.
Dear Deanna!
My fiance cheated before we were married and I recently learned that he's still seeing
the woman he cheated with. I want to get out of the relationship but feel we should go
to counseling. I find it hard to forgive him because I'm scared he'll do it again. What
should I do about this?
Anisha Washington, DC
Dear Anisha:
You had your warning signs before you got married and you knew what you were get-
ting yourself into. Most women that are in tune with their relationship know when their
mate is cheating. You should seek professional counseling not only for your marriage
but yourself as well. If it doesn't work you'll be able to breathe instead of sharing your
spouse or walking around being scared and worrying about a man.

SAMPLE BALLOTS Mailed to Voters Thursday
The Duval County Supervisor of Elections Office mailed out 503,428 sample bal-
lots to Duval County voters on Thursday, October 16th. Sample ballots are sent to
inform voters of the candidates and the six proposed constitutional amendments that
will appear on the ballot for the November 4th General Election. It notifies voters of
their polling location and precinct number. The sample ballot explains to voters their
rights and responsibilities and lists the acceptable forms of identification to take to the
polls. It also reminds voters of the three ways they may vote: vote by mail, vote early,
or vote on Election Day. The sample ballot also contains a profile page showing state-
ments from each local candidate appearing on their ballot for voters to review prior to
voting.
If a voter does not receive a sample ballot, that voter may be one of the 75,469 inac-
tive voters in Duval County. An inactive voter is a voter that currently does not have an
updated address on file with the Supervisor of Elections Office. All voters whose
records were active as of Monday, October 6th will be mailed a sample ballot. Voters
who do not receive a sample ballot may visit our website, www.duvalelections.com, to
download and view their sample ballot. Voters who are visually impaired may call

ing will identify the offices up for election and the candidates running for office as well
as the proposed constitutional amendments. For additional information contact: Tracie

NAACP Legal Defense Fund
Settles Important Voting Rights Case and Allows
Voter Education Effort to Continue

(Tuesday, October 21, 2008 New York, NY) Today, the NAACP Legal
Defense Fund (LDF) settled the lawsuit it filed against the Alabama Department
of Corrections in federal court earlier this month on behalf of Reverend Kenneth
Glasgow. Immediately after the lawsuit was filed, the parties began settlement
discussions under which Reverend Glasgow last week resumed his non-partisan
ministry to eligible voters currently incarcerated in the state's correctional facili-
ties.
The lawsuit was filed after the Alabama Department of Corrections cancelled
Reverend Glasgow's ministry following the Alabama Republican Party's objection
to his voter education activities.
"Now I can continue the ministry that God gave me: helping to give a voice to
the voiceless by reaching out to people .in Alabama's correctional facilities who are
eligible to vote," said Reverend Glasgow. "The ministry is so critical because too
many in Alabama's correctional facilities who are eligible to vote don't know it."
While incarcerated six years ago, Reverend Glasgow joined a prison ministry
.that addressed the importance of personal and civic responsibility and restoration
as personal virtues and as cornerstones for one's community. He was struck by the
prison ministry's focus on exercising the right to vote as a means to restore an him
to his community and vowed to give back by starting his own ministry. Upon his
release in 2002, Reverend Glasgow founded The Ordinary People Society, a not-
for-profit organization in Dothan, Alabama. In 2004, the Alabama Board of
Pardons and Parole restored Reverend Glasgow's voting rights.
"Today's settlement ensures the result that we sought and that Alabama's con-
stitution and laws require eligible people in correctional facilities will be-able to
participate in Reverend Glasgow's ministry and learn about their voting rights
prior to close of registration for the upcoming November 4 general election," said
John Payton, LDF President and Director-Counsel.
Ryan P. Haygood, Co-Director of LDF's Political Participation Group at LDF
who represented Reverend Glasgow added: "This significant development
strengthens the integrity of Alabama's democratic processes by guaranteeing that
eligible voters who seek to vote will have their voices heard."
The NAACP Legal Defense Fund was joined in the lawsuit by Herman
Johnson, of Wiggins, Childs, Quinn & Pantazis.
ABOUT LDF: The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) is
America's legal counsel on issues of race. Through advocacy and litigation, LDF

Dwight Howard had 26 points and 16

before 12,110 at Jacksonville Veterans

Orlando (4-1) tallied for their fourth con-
secutive preseason victory. The Heat led after
the first period, 27-23.
The Magic previously called Jacksonville
their home for training camp but since moved
back to the RDV Sportsplex gym in Orlando.
Still, the Heat was the home team and was hop- b -b b
ing to notch their first win of the pre-season e w
under new head coach Erik Spoelstra.
A 24-6 run started with Howard's free
throw with 6:04 to play in the second quarter.

Special to Florida Star Sports.
After throwing a school-record six touchdowns in
leading JU to a 40-9 rout of Morehead State on Saturday,
freshman quarterback Josh McGregor was named
Pioneer Football League Offensive "Player of the Week."
McGregor completed 16-of-27 passes for 319 yards,
his second highest offensive output of the season. The six
touchdowns is the most by a quarterback in the Football
Championship Subdivision this season and is one of just
five quarterbacks in all of Division I (FCS and FBS) to
throw for six touchdowns this season.
It's his second-highest passing yardage output this
season and the third time he has thrown for more than
250 yards in a game.
"Josh's performance was worthy of this honor," said
JU head coach Kerwin Bell. "We've been working with
Josh to make sure that he limits his mistakes and make
positive plays. He did everything we asked of him yes-
terday."
The outing pushed McGregor into a tie for second on
the school's single-season passing touchdowns list with
15. He is just five shy of tying the school record of 20 set
by Mike Sturgill in 2003.
He also has 1,608 yards passing this season, which
moves him into fourth on the single- season list and with-
in striking distance of the school record. Sturgill threw
for 2,060 yards in 2003 as a sophomore.
While his arm earned the honor, McGregor also
made plays with his legs rushing for a team- high 43
yards on eight carries despite being sacked twice.
McGregor and the Dolphins face San Diego in a key
PFL matchup on Saturday at D.B. Milne Field. Kickoff
is set for 1 p.m.

The EWC GAMEDAY
Tigers Can't Spoil Braves' Homecoming
By Mike Bonts, Sports Editor
PEMBROKE, N.C. UNC Pembroke built a 30-0 half-
time lead and went on to a 43-8 homecoming victory over
Edward Waters Saturday at Grace P. Johnson Stadium
"The Braves were a totally different team personnel
wise than the one we played last year. They had a big offen-
sive line the caused us trouble," said Tigers' coach Kevin
Clark.
Edward Waters drove 60 yards in 12 plays at the end of
the third quarter. With 9:33 to play scored their only points
Antoni Bellamy caught a 10-yard pass from quarterback
Kamau Leitner. Leitner was 17 of 27 for 150 yards ands
sacked five times. Bellamy led the Tigers in receptions with
five catches for 59 yards.
Following the TD, Scott Peters caught the two-point
conversion pass from Dominiqe Grooms. Peters had three
catches for 20 yards. Trentt Stewart caught four passes for
24 yards.
"We could move the ball but kept stopping ourselves but
penalties and not converting on third down. We hurt our-
selves. We just have to put four quarters together," Clark
said.
The EWC running game never caught any traction
against the Braves. Rondez Dennis ran for 20 yards on five
carries. Rena Jeanmarie ran for 11 yards on two plays. But
in the end EWC totaled -26 in yards on the ground.
The Tigers' Nadens Madeus averaged 43 yards on three
kickoff returns.
On defense Rodrigue Owens recorded 13 tackles to.lead
the visitors. Jose Cheesbrough had 10 and Muni
Muwwakkil finished with nine. Owens also returned an
interception 23 yards.
Quinton Warren, Jama Sheffied aand Madeus each had
four tackles.
"We also need a strong first half, no penalties and being
able to score in the red zone when we are down there,"
Clark said.
The Braves answered the Tigers TD with their own on a
seven-play, 71-yard drive.
Freshman Jamal Williams reeled in eight passes for a
school record 153 yards one for a touchdown and a rushing
TD. Quarterback Cory Smith threw for 169 yards while
going 11 of 16 and a TD to Keith Gore.
EWC NOTEBOOK: The Braves were looking for a bit
of revenge. Edward Waters defeated UNCP 31-28
Jacksonville last season. The Braves (7-1) tacked on their
fifth-straight racking up a school-best 488 yards of total
offense, including 308 through the air. Time of possession
belonged to the hosts, 45:34 to 25:04 for the Tigers.
THIS WEEK'S OPPONENT: North Greenville (1-7)
will host a Homecoming matchup with the Tigers at 2 p.m.
at Younts Stadium. NGU defeated Edward Waters 42-28
last year in Jacksonville and currently holds a 2-0 advan-
tage in the series. NGU beat EW 48-19 at home in 2006.
