Mrs. Michelle Obama,

is now the "First Lady of the

But-she, according to all
information given, has
always lived and acted in a
lady-like manner. She expe-
rienced many of the teasing
that a large number of black
girls face in their effort to do
things "properly." For-that,
she was teased by others
saying, 'she was trying to act
white.' You don't have to
look far to meet both male
and female black children
who are teased in the same
manner. In most cases, they
possess the mannerism that
they are taught. They are
achievers and understand the
value of giving your best in
order to get the best.

Many remembers back when he
was called, "The Fly Jock"
because of his daily flights
between Dallas and Chicago. We
are talking about Tom Joyner, the
hardest working man in radio.
This week, he was relieved of
some of his air time in Chicago

you have listened to Tom during
his past 20 plus years on the air,
you know he also would bring on

Founded In April 1951 By Eric 0. Simpso
First African American Inducted Into
The Florida Press Hall Of Fame


President Obama's Executive Order
Establishing a White House Council on
Women and Girls


By the authority vested
in me as President by the
Constitution and the laws of
.the United States of
America, I hereby order as
follows:
Section 1. Policy. Over
the past generation, our
society has made tremen-
dous progress in eradicating
barriers to women's suc-
cess. A record number of
women are attending col-
lege and graduate, school.
Women make up a growing
share of our workforce, and
more women are corporate
executives and business
owners than ever before,
helping boost the U.S.
economy and foster U.S.
competitiveness around the
world. Today, women are
serving at the highest levels
of all branches of our
Government.
Despite this progress,
certain inequalities contin-
ue to persist. On average,
American women continue
to earn only about 78 cents
for every dollar men make,
and women are still signifi-
cantly underrepresented in
the science, engineering,
and technology fields. Far
too many women lack
health insurance, and many
are unable to take time off
to care for a new baby or an
ailing family member.
Violence against women


and girls remains a global
epidemic. The challenge of
ensuring equal educational
opportunities for women
and girls endures. As the
current economic crisis has
swept across our Nation,
women have been seriously
affected.
These issues do not con-
cern just women. When
jobs do not offer family
leave, that affects-men who
wish to help care for their
families. When women earn
less than men for the same
work, that affects families
who have to work harder to
make ends meet. When our
daughters do not have the
same educational and career
opportunities as our sons,
that affects entire communi-
ties, our economy, and our
future as a Nation.
The purpose of this
order is to establish a coor-
dinated Federal response to
issues that particularly
impact the lives of women
and girls and to ensure that
Federal programs and poli-
'cies address and take into
account the distinctive con-
cerns of women and girls,
including women of color
and those with disabilities.
Sec. 2. White House
Council on Women and
Girls. There is established
within the Executive Office
of the President a White
House Council on Women
and Girls (Council).
A member of the
Council may designate, to
perform the Council func-
tions of the member, a sen-
ior-level official who is a
part of the member's depart-
ment, agency, or office, and
who is a full-time officer or
employee of the Federal
Government. At the direc-
tion of the Chair, the
Council may establish sub-
groups consisting exclu-
sively of Council members
or their designees-under this
section, as appropriate.
(b) Administration of the
Council. The Department of
Commerce shall provide
funding and administrative
support for the Council to
the extent permitted by law
and within existing appro-
priations. The Chair shall
convene regular meetings
of the Council, determine
its agenda, and direct its
work. The Chair shall des-


ignate an Executive
Director of the Council,
who shall coordinate the
work of the Council and
head any staff assigned to
the Council.
Sec. 3. Mission and
Functions of the Council.
The,- Council shall work
across executive depart-
ments and agencies to pro-
vide a coordinated Federal
response to issues that have
a distinct impact on the
lives of women and girls,
including assisting women-
owned businesses to com-
pete internationally and
working to increase the par-
ticipation of women in the
science, engineering, and
technology workforce, and
to ensure that Federal pro-
grams and policies ade-
quately take those impacts
into account. The Council
shall be responsible for pro-,
viding recommendations to
the President on the effects
of pending legislation and
executive branch policy
proposals; for suggesting
changes to Federal pro-
grams or policies to address
issues of special importance'
to women and girls; for
reviewing and recommend-
ing changes to policies that
have a distinct impact on
women in the Federal work-
force; and for assisting in
the development of legisla-
tive and policy proposals of
special importance to
women and girls. The func-
tions of the Council, are
advisory only,
Sec. 4. Outreach.
Consistent with the objec-
tives set out in this order,
the Council, in accordance
with applicable law, in addi-
tion to regular meetings,
shall conduct outreach with
representatives of nonprofit
organizations, State and
local government agencies,
elected officials, and other.
interested persons that will
assist with the Council's
development of a detailed
set of recommendations.
Sec. 5. Federal
Interagency Plan. The.
Council shall, within 150
days of the date of this
order, develop and submit
to the President a Federal
interagency plan with rec-
ommendations for intera-
gency action consistent with
the goals of this order. The
Federal interagency plan
shall include an assessment
by each member executive
department, agency, or
office of the status and


the progress and advance-
ment of women and girls.
Such an assessment shall
include a report on the sta-
tus of any offices or pro-
grams that have been creat-
ed to develop, implement,
or monitor targeted initia-
tives concerning women or
girls. The Federal intera-
gency plan shall also
include recommendations
for issues, programs, or ini-
tiatives that should be fur-
ther evaluated or studied by
the Council. The Council
, shall review and update the
Federal interagency plan
periodically, as appropriate,
and shall present" to the
President any updated rec-
ommendations or findings.
Sec. 6. General
Provisions. (a) The heads of
executive departments and
agencies shall assist and
provide information to the
Council, consistent with
applicable law, as may be
necessary to carry out the
functions of the Council.
Each executive department
and agency shall bear its
own expense for participat-
ing in the Council.
(b) Nothing in this order
shall be construed to impair
or otherwise affect:
(i) authority granted by
law to an executive depart-
ment, agency, or the head
thereof; or
(ii) functions of the
Director of the Office of
Management and Budget
relating to budgetary,
administrative, or legisla-
tive proposals.
(c) This order shall be
implemented consistent
with applicable law and
subject to the availability of
appropriations.
(d) This order is not
intended to, and does not,
create any right or benefit,
substantive or procedural,
enforceable at law or in
equity by any party against
the United States, its depart-
ments, agencies, or entities,
its officers, employees, or
agents, or any other person.

Condoleeza


Rice: Trailblazer


International Relations


Condoleezza Rice
(born November 14, 1954)
was the 66th United States
Secretary of State, and the
second in the administra-
tion of President. George
W. Bush to hold the office.
Rice was the first black
woman, second African
American (after her prede-
cessor Colin Powell, who
served from 2001 to 2005),
and the second woman
(after Madeleine Albright,
who served from 1997 to-
2001 in the Clinton
Administration) to serve as
Secretary of State. Rice
was President Bush's
National Security Advisor
during his first term.
Before joining the Bush
administration, she was a
professor of political sci-
ence at Stanford
University where she
served as Provost from
1993 to 1999. During the
administration of George
H.W. Bush, Rice served as
the Soviet and East
European Affairs Advisor
during the dissolution of
the Soviet Union and
German reunification.
Condoleezza Rice
(whose given name is
derived from the Italian
musical expression, Con
dolcezza, which means
"with sweetness") was
born in Birmingham,
Alabama, and grew up in
the, neighborhood of
Titusville. She is the only
child of Presbyterian min-


ister Reverend John
Wesley Rice, Jr., and wife,
Angelena Ray. Reverend
Rice was a guidance coun-
selor- at Ullman High
School and minister of
Westminster Presbyterian
Church, which had been
founded by his father.
Angelena was a science,
music, and oratory teacher
at Ullman.
Rice was eight when
her schoolmate Denise
McNair, aged 11, was
killed in the bombing of
the primarily black
Sixteenth Street Baptist
Church by white suprema-
cists on September 15,
1963.
Rice was a Democrat
until 1982 when she


changed her political affil-
iation to Republican after
growing averse to former
President Jimmy Carter's
foreign policy. She also
cited influence from her
father, John Wesley, in this
decision, who himself
switched from Democrat
to Republican after being
denied voting registration
by the Democratic regis-
trar. In her words to the
2000 Republican National
Convention, "My father
joined our party because
the Democrats in Jim
Crow Alabama of 1952
would not register him to
vote. The Republicans
did."

Stimulus Continued from A-1
are part of a process to put in place businesses and programs to enhance Jacksonville and surrounding coun-
ties. The network is with Congresswoman Brown, Mayor Peyton, and Dr. Steve Wallace, President of FCCJ
and the mission seem to be to give the community information on the Programs, their funding agency, the
money involved a description of what the funds can be used for and how to apply. Ms. Brown stated she is
so fired up about making the plan operational, that if something appears out of order she has no problem
with calling the PO PO. .... (.At this writing some people don't know what the popo mean... .ask somebody)
the audience laughed and enjoyed the moment. Then Ms. Brown got serious again giving a reminder that
this is a part of the beginning and we've got to do it right. She emphasized that she is going to make sure
the district she represent has as'the information, along with accessibility to the people that are in place to
help get it right.
Mayor Peyton explained there are 3 areas the grants applications will be awarded in. The Mayor stated
"There is money for everything and a lot of it." The city has partnered with Congress, and the learning curve
is steep. Mr. Peyton pointed out that once an RFP is sent out, the idea is to be off and operating between 90
and 120 days. Grants will be received and awarded using a formula grant method of competitive grants and
discretionary grants. The Mayor's office will be held accountable and will present a transparency that will
help push and keep the city on track was mentioned several times during the Mayor's presentation.
Dr. Wallace welcomed the opportunity to showcase FCCJ and the ability to assist with facilities and techni-
cal support, to handle the general session and the number of breakout session s for the department handling
the programs listed in The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. /
Jacksonville is not the only city that is in the area under the governmental leader. of Congresswoman B/own,
as the information presented covered rural areas and others counties, the Mayor of Baldwin was acknowl-
edged, along with the Vice Mayor of Palaka Mary Brown and other representatives of neighboring counties
in Northeast and Central Florida.
The information given, included the pay-credit tax refund of around' 62% of earned income, and the possi-
bility of not having enough taxes withheld and maybe owning money at the end to the year. Wilfredo
Gonzales, Small Business Administration, in his presentation told everyone about an increase of guaran-
teed loans of up to 90% of the loan. Business Stabilization Programs expect to get $636 million dollars. The
Department of labor talked about training, national emergency, youth building programs, and, additional
funding for older Americans. Construction companies got information advising that over a billion dollars
will be available and was instructed to be sure the guidelines, were followed. .The weatherization program
with the North East Florida Community Agency is extended. Housing and Urban Development will receive
$4 billion Federal dollars; Violence Against Women Prevention and Prosecution will get $225 million and
is a Competitive Grant.
Information showed The Federal Investment is $787 billion. HUD 13.6 billion with $385,273,679 million to
Florida, formula grants allocation is $10.1 billion, with 25 % going to competitive grants.
With the permission of my editor this reporter will continue to present the process, and report on dates, infor-
mation, people and organizations that are available to help the community maximize this opportunity. As I
heard a wise man, say, "Let the dead bury the Dead" What are we doing today that will impact tomorrow.
Woman Continued from A-1
As she moved to change lanes, Jen Yung Lee, 22, of Savannah was trying to zip by her on the right side.
She then lost control of her car and overturned several times. The lady was pronounced dead at the scene
which was also the same fate for her unborn child. Jaila, her niece was taken by air ambulance to Shands-
Jacksonville and is in serious condition. Sinclair's son and daughter did not require hospitalization but the
driver of the motorcycle suffered a broken leg and other injuries.
Because Lee was riding the motorcycle in a very aggressive manner, in and out of traffic, and above the
speed limit, it is expected, according to reports, that charges will be filed against him. The accident caused
the death of two.

The Florida Star Still "The People's Choice"


First Continued from A-1
Americans and all other young people to learn the steps they
must take in order to be successful. First Lady Obama is able
to use she and her husband as an example and that is signifi-
cant when it comes to basic learning skills.
The Florida and Georgia Star receive constant calls about
the pride and admiration felt just watching the Obama fami-
ly. Michelle Obama a true "First Lady" in every way.

Dr. Continued from A-1
South and the African American experience, Dr. Franklin' is
considered /he history expert.
Dr. Franklin was a history professor at Duke University
and author of "From Slavery to Freedom: A History of
Negro Americans."
The/revered historian died Wednesday of congestive heart
failure at Duke University's hospital in Durham, N.C. He
was glad to live to see Obama become president.
City Councilwoman Glorious Johnson wrote an
article in the March 21, 2009 issue "Is the Willie
Lynch Syndrome Alive and Well in Jacksonville?"
It was designed to be the first of five articles. It is
not appearing in this issue because of this Special
Women's Edition, but will continue next week.
