Something to Think About


The conversation of the week throughout the United States and the world, is how President George W. Bush was
able to very successfully duck a pair of shoes thrown at his head by Iraqi reporter, al-Zeidi who worked for an
Iraqi-owned television station. The shoe attack occurred when President Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-
Maliki were about to shake hands at a press conference in Baghdad. Bush expressed humor about the matter.
But when you look at the shoes of our beloved President Elect Barack Obama as he tirelessly work (we don't know
if the' picture has been edited), we are reminded that America is facing a new day with a man who has seen some
rough times. Now we can hold our heads high as we look forward to the changes. Now, we can better relate to
why Time Magazine recognized President-Elect Obama as "The 2008 Person of the Year."


Use of Guns Continues to Affect

Northeast Florida, South Georgia
It was three years ago when Eugene Brown III was shot
while walking home from a football game. His family said
they could pot understand then why he was shot but they

Sunday night, Brown was shot again, but this time, he did
not live. According to records, Eugene Brown III, 16, was
driving and was shot in the back of his head while being
pursued by Jacksonville Sheriff officers. It is not under-

ger and has been arrested, but only charged for giving police a false

Because of sluggish
sales, and failure of help
from, the U. S.
Government, Chrysler
and Ford will close their
plants for about a month
and GM feels they will
not have enough money
to pay their bills within a
few weeks.
The temporary closing
of the plants will strongly
affect the U. S. economy.

announced that he is
working on some other
avenues to assist the U. S.

First African American Inducted Into
The Florida Press Hall Of Fame


On October 4, 1957, his-
tory changed with the Soviet
Union's successful launch of
Sputnik I, the world's first
man-made satellite.
Americans were alarmed
that we had been outpaced
technologically and saw the
Soviet feat as a threat to our
national security. In order to
catch up with the Russians,
our nation swung into action
and infused new funding
and resources into scientific
research on a priority basis
that resulted in new labs
springing up all over the
country. To support this
national initiative, schools
upgraded and expanded
math and science instruction
at every level. Congress
established scholarships and
grants to enable young peo-
ple to pursue science and
engineering majors in col-
lege and graduate schools.
These efforts paid off as a
new generation of American
scientists and engineers was
produced and the United
States became the Mecca for
scientific research in virtual-
ly all fields. Now, five
decades later, we are again
on the verge of falling
behind technologically,
largely because of a failure
to provide world class sci-
ence and math instruction in
our schools.
Physician and geneticist


Francis Collins, the former
director of the National
Human Genome Research
Institute, warns that the
decline in math and science
education has placed our
nation in great peril. He
charges that the scientific
and technological elements
upon which America has
built the strongest economy
in history are eroding just as
other nations are emerging.
An extensive study, Rising
Above the Gathering Storm:
Energizing and Employing
America for a Brighter
Economic Future by the
National Academy of
Sciences, revealed that in
2003, of the 15-year-olds
tested for their ability to.
apply mathematical con-
cepts to real-world prob-.
lems, Americans ranked
24th among the students
from 40 countries that par-
ticipated in the examination.
The Rising Above the
Gathering Storm study also
stated that 15 percent of all
U.S. undergraduates receive
their degrees in natural sci-
ence or engineering com-
pared with 38 percent in
South Korea, 47 percent in
France, 50 percent in China,
and 67 percent in Singapore.
This is not something that
can be addressed in a few
years. For example, it takes
about 25 years to train a

research physicist from
kindergarten through high
school, college, graduate
school and post-doctoral
studies.
If our nation doesn't rein-
vest in science education at
all levels as a major national
priority, there will be serious
social and economic conse-
quences. Dr. Collins asserts
that, "Prior U.S. investments
in science and technology
counted for at least half of
our economic growth since
World War II. Scientific
research offers our best hope
for discovering new energy
sources, making advances in
medicine, countering global
epidemics and finding solu-
tions to climate change."
SWith. many American
schools providing only a
substandard science and
math education, we have to
ask ourselves: Will
American scientists partici-
pate in the development of
cures for HIV and cancer or
advanced breakthroughs in
car fuel cells?
Our national leaders have
not responded to the erosion
of our technological preemi-
nence with sufficient fund-
ing for basic scientific
research, notably through
the National Institutes of
Health- (NIH), the main
source of biomedical
research grants to our top
universities. According to
Dr. Collins, flat funding for
the last five years and infla-
tion have caused a 13 per-
cent decrease in financial
support for NIH.


leadership to revamp
instruction in these primary
subjects to respond to global
competition. A good place to
start is to address the short-
age of math and science
teachers in our schools.
Research by Richard M.
Ingersoll, a Professor of
Education and Sociology at
the University of
Pennsylvania, found that in
2000, about 28 percent of
science teachers in 7th to
12th grades don't have a
major or minor in science-
for math, it was 38 percent.
We need to provide greater
financial aid in the form of
grants and scholarships to
students who excel in math
and science studies coupled
with loan forgiveness to col-
lege students preparing to go
into science and math teach-
ing. Teachers currently in
the classroom should be pro-
vided summer courses to
augment their science
knowledge and teaching
skills. We cannot fail to pre-
pare our children to thrive in
a world where science and
technology define in many
ways how we work, live and
entertain ourselves.

"There 's Always Something Happening On The First Coast"


A Holiday Sunset Cruise
Every time you think that Host Extraordinaire
Samuel Hall, Jr. has had the most creative party ever,
you can count on Sam Hall 'stepping out of the box'
with something creative and different for his annual
holiday party. For his 2008 Holiday Fare, Samuel Hall
hosted a Holiday Sunset Cruise on the Infinity Yacht.
The weather was perfect and the skyline was.
breathtaking as we departed from the Jacksonville
Landing, cruising south on the St. Johns River. It. was,
out first party of the holiday season and it was absolute-
ly fabulous with dancing, conviviality, appetizing cui-
sine and libations galore!
Guests included many out of town fraternity broth-
ers of. the hosts: Bobby Johnson (Former Albany,
Georgia Chief of Police), Ralph Leggett and Coleman
Wilson. Ms. Shai Hall, D.D.S. the stunningly dressed
niece of the host came down from Atlanta, Georgia for
the party with her friend R.J. Coleman. Other guests
included: The Howard Taylors; Clara White Mission's
CEO Mrs. JuCoby Pittman-Peele; Ms. Linda
Witsell; The Orrin Mitchells; and The Ira Danielses.
It was our first party of the holiday season and it
was absolutely fabulous!

Marc Little, Author
Michael and Marsha Phelts' American Beach
Chateau was the setting for Author Marc Little's Book
Signing Party The book signing for Marc Little's Don't
Blink When God Calls was a sell out and orders had to
be placed for those who were unable to receive them.
And as always, guests at the Phelts' can always count
on having a bounty of edibles. The buffet included:
Punch, oatmeal coconut cookies, brownies, lemon
squares, candied walnuts and butter cinnamints, turkey
salad sandwiches, shrimp spread garnish with boiled
shrimp, shrimp dip, spinach dip, assorted crackers,
cheese bites, roasted potatoes, Swedish meatballs, and
pasta salad. Between the hostess Mrs. Phelts and Mrs.
Deloris Gilyard everything' was home made and
scrumptious.
Guests included: Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Simms, Mrs.
-Jody Dixon, Ms. Felicia Mitchell, Mr. and Mrs.
Terry Mills, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Springs, Mr. and
Mrs. Neal Frink, Ms. Roslyn 'Auntie Roz'

Marc's recently published novel Don't Blink When
God Calls chronicles the mayoral campaign of Curt
Felton, Jr. in Forrestville, Florida, while examining the
battle for an African American man to gain credibility
in a political process that is perceptually reserved for
White males. This is Marc Little's first book' and from
the enthusiastic response of those attending this Book
Signing, I am sure there are more books inside of this,
talented young man.

Women in Atlanta where she graduated summa cum laude in 1938, with a BA degree
in education. Lorraine Alston was united in holy matrimony with John Adam Phelts,
of Macon, Georgia on November 7, 1940. They became the proud parents of five
loving children, four sons and a daughter. She was widowed upon her husband's
death in 1978.
Mrs. Phelts was privileged to have taught in the state of Georgia and in Madison

Duval County at Douglas Anderson early in the 1950s. After a rewarding career,
which spanned 39 years in Duval County, Mrs. Phelts retired from Ribault Middle
School in 1986.
Throughout her lifetime she continued to enjoy playing the piano. Lorraine also
enjoyed reading arts and crafts, cooking, organizing family gatherings, shopping and
traveling. She returned to Atlanta in 1988 to attend her 50th year reunion at
Spellman and until her health began failing she, along with her niece Linda Belton,
was active with the Boylan-Haven Alumnae Association.
She came to know Christ and maintained a long time membership with St. Pius the
Fifth Catholic Church where she was a member of the Altar Rosary Society. Funeral

Putnam County 17 year old, Clarence Drake, was arrested Thursday for bringing a

The 1981 Walsh Killing Finally Solved and A
Man Has Been Arrested for a 1987 St.
Petersburg Rape and Murder
John Walsh has dedicated his life to solving crimes since the 1981 murder and
decapitation of his six-year-old son, Adam Walsh. Walsh originated "America's
Most Wanted" as a result of his son's death with a goal of finding his murdered.
Now, it has been confirmed that his son was killed by Ottis Toole. Toole died in
prison in 1996 at the age of 49 of cirrhosis. Even though he confessed to his family
about the murder, it was not until this week that the case was closed.
On Wednesday, 48-year-old Tony Fantauzzi of Jacksonville, was arrested for the
1987 murder of 19-year-old Lisa Bickford. She had been strangled and raped.
These two murders have finally been solved after twenty plus years. There are so
many murders in Jacksonyille that are still unsolved. Rev. Harvey keeps a record
because of his desire to get them all solved. It's not snitching when you help.

KEN JEFFERSON -Moving Ahead


Ken Jetterson, the tace
and the voice of the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
for the past 5. V2 years is now
assigned to the Community
Affairs Division -for the
Sheriff's Office. Ken has
been a fixture on our televi-
sion sets, in the newspaper,
as well as a regular gueston
several radio stations during
the time he spent as the
Senior Public Information
Officer. Je'fferson's duties as
the Public Information
Officer included but was not
limited to representing the
Sheriff's office as the
spokesperson at major crime
scenes such as murders,
homicides, aggravated bat-
tery case, traffic fatalities,
bomb threats, SWAT calls,
train accidents and plane
crashes just to name a few.
He was often on call and
awakened, throughout the
night and would sometime
have to leave the comforts of
home to go to those horrific
crime scenes. According to
Jefferson he has seen the
"good, the bad, and the ugly"
effects of crime. Two inci-
dents stand out more than
others that really touched


Jetterson. One was the inci-
dent involving Shenice
Holmes, a child who was at
home, heard gunfire while
reading a book being hit by a
stray bullet. Then the other
incident involving
Dreyshawna Davis another
child at home minding her
own business when gunfire
outside erupted she attempt-
ed to shield her cousin and
ended up getting hit by a
stray bullet. Jefferson
responded to both of those
scenes and those events
would have a lasting effect
on him.
Everyone in
Jacksonville over the past 5
V2 years has grown accus-
tomed to turning their televi-
sion sets on everyday for the
evedting news in expectation
of watching Jefferson give
details of what was happen-
ing in our city. Jefferson por-
trayed a smooth, forthcom-
ing delivery which captured
the hearts and minds of per-
sons listening to hear what
he had to say. "We knew we
were going to get the truth
whenever we heard from
Jefferson" said one'citizen.
His candidness and calm


demeanor would put at ease
all anxiety associated with a
horrific story.
Anything and everything
that occurred in Jacksonville
since 2003 we would rely on
Jefferson to tell it. Upon
being elected and taking
office for his first term in
2003 Sheriff John
Rutherford made a very wise
choice in appointing
Jefferson as.his PIO. Since
that time Jefferson has repre-
sented the Sheriff and the
Sheriff's Office in a most
dignified and professional
manner. Jefferson in 2006
was named the Number One
Public Information Officer
in the state of Florida by the
Florida Law Enforcement
Public Information Officers
Association. This award is
given annually to one person
in the state who exemplifies
the ability to manage crisis
communication, has a pro-
fessional public image for
him as well as the agency he
represents, can manage and
communicate effectively any
type of internal crisis occur-
ring within an agency, as
well as have the ability to
manage external crises of


things happening within a
city.
This award is not an easy
undertaking when you look
at the other counties within
the state and recognize the
talent that is all around the
state. After receiving that
prestigious award, Jefferson
went on to make history and
win the award for a second
consecutive time, a feat that
has never been accom-
plished. (No one has ever
won this award twice).
Jefferson, when asked about
winning the award two con-
secutive years credits his
faith in God and the unyield-
ing support he receives from
his family. He presented the
award to his wife saying
"This is the real winner".
Jefferson, since then has
received numerous other
awards for his work and ded-
ication to this city and its
communities within. In
February 2008 Jefferson was
honored with a Resolution
from the Mayor and the
Jacksonville City Council
for his outstanding work and
diligence as the face and
voice of reason representing
the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office.
In June 2008 the Florida
Law Enforcement Public
Information Officers
Association honored
Jefferson as the Crisis
Communicator of the year
for the state of Florida. This
award was given in recogni-
tion of Jefferson's ability, to.
properly and effectively
communicate, information to
the public during the
Berkman Plaza Garage col-
lapse in which there was one
fatality. The award also rec-
ognized him for his ability to
remain calm in the midst of a
crisis during the T2
Laboratory explosion two
weeks later which killed five
(5) people on Jacksonville's


northside. Both of these, sto-
ries made national news.
Jefferson hosted and
produced a weekly Sheriff's
Office Community Affairs
show entitled Signal 94. He
also produced and co-hosted
the number one rated "wheel
of justice" where he
appeared every Thursday for
nearly three years. "The
wheel of justice has become
a huge crime fighting tool",
said Jefferson. Because of
the show over 140 persons
have been captured.
Jefferson during his tenure
as PIO appeared weekly and
monthly on the following
shows; Radio V101.5
Community Perspective;
Monthly AM 1360; Impact
Monthly FM 105.7, 105.5
and 92.5; Impact Monthly
Television; Daily news sto-
ries on all networks; WJXT
Daily; First Coast News
Daily; FOX 30 CBS 47
Daily; Wheel of Justice
Weekly; and WJEB (TBN
Affiliate) Bi-monthly
In addition to his duties'


of being a Public
Information Officer, hus-
band, and father he also
coaches PAL basketball 12
and under, coaches the men's
police Olympic basketball
40 & older team and is very
active in his church Faith
Christian Center.
All of us here. in North
Florida, South Georgia,
Gainesville and other areas
in this region will miss see-
ing Ken reporting the news
and keeping us informed.
Ken Jefferson has raised the
bar and standards for ALL
Public Information Officers
and has taken that position to
a higher level. Jacksonville
is a little better off on being
informed as to what's. hap-
pening in our city because of
Ken Jefferson who repre-
sented the Jacksonville
Sheriff's Office and our city
with dignity, respect, and
integrity. He has served us
well and I'm sure he will
continue to do so in his role
within the Community
Affairs Division.

Renaissance Creative Launches
Free Origami Ornaments Holiday Promotion

Jacksonville, Fla. (December 16,
',7 2008) No cash for holiday gifts or
decorations? No problem!. Give the
., gift of Origami ornaments! It's free,
courtesy of integrated marketing,
design, brand development and public
.. relations communications firm,
Renaissance Creative.
"By going to the agency's promo-
S,. tional site at www.sendingpeace.com,
visitors can download any of (3) origi-
nal illustrated holiday designs, includ-
ing a peaceable dove, Christmas tree and New Year's-themed champagne glass. Easy-
to-follow interactive instructions allow visitors to fold and create their ornaments at
their own pace; print as many as they like: and pass along electronically to friends.
Renaissance is running the promotion in conjunction with it's own internal holi-
day card campaign and new corporate website launch. The agency has undergone its
own transformation over the past 18-months from a brand development firm that pre-
\iously specialized exclusively in real estate, to a more diversified agency with
stronger emphasis in interactive, public relations and designed communications across
multiple industries.
As part of the company's holiday campaign, it sent clients, vendors and associates
printed, foldable Origami cards that recipients then had to go to the holiday website to
learn how to fold, and gain access to the other designs. A forwarding link on the hol-
iday site encouraged visitors to then prei ew the company's new corporate site.
S"It's a fun. uplifting campaign and we expect people will want to share it", said
Tim Hamby, President and Co-Creative Director at Renaissance. "Like all our com-
munication design, PR and branding efforts, we began by considering behavioral
trends: 50% of all consumers say they will spend less on gifts this holiday season, 25%
significantly less. Then, we asked ourselves a few key questions. What real benefit
could we provide users'? How could we make it compelling and interactive? How
could we make it viral (easy and appealing to share), to potentially tap into social net-
works? And how could this help us link into an ultimate expression of our brand? This
is what we came up with and we hope people have a good time with it!"

Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a two-yard touchdown with less than two minutes
remaining to give the Jaguars to a 20-16 win over Green Bay. The loss officially elimi-
nated the Packers from playoff contention.

coach Jack Del Rio. "It was nice to jump out and get a lead."
QB David Garrard completed 21-of-33 passes for 238 yards.with two touchdowns
for the Jaguars (5-9), who snapped a four-game losing streak. Dennis Northcutt had 127
yards on five catches, including a 30-yard TD, and Jones-Drew also caught a 14-yard TD
pass.
"I think he was just sharper today," Del Rio said of Garrard. "I thought the plan came
together nicely. He just played well and we needed that." t
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers finished 20-of-32 passing with 278 yards, one touchdown
and an interception for the Packers (5-9), who dropped four games in a row. James Jones
made four receptions for 132 yards and Donald Driver had 65 yards on five catches.
The Jaguars trailed 13-7 going into the fourth quarter but took the lead on a 14-yard
TD pass from Garrard to Jones-Drew with 10:39 remaining. Mason Crosby then

an early 7-0 Jaguars lead.
