Serial Killer Wanted
Since 2005, Rocky Mount, North Carolina have miss-
ing 9 women who lived at the frayed edges of the poor
community. Six of their bodies were found decompos-
ing a few miles outside of town, along rural roads.
Three women are still missing.
The missing and murdered women were all known to
sell sex to support drug habits or children. Once locat-
ed, their bodies were so decomposed that it has been
difficult to tell how they died but reports show that one
had been strangled.
People in the community feel they have a serial killer
in the area who is possibly an ex-military man or an ex-
police officer because he leaves no evidence behind.
Others believe that he may have contracted HIV from a
prostitute and is killing others as revenge.
A real investigation begun in June 2009, four years
after the murders started.

Wednesday in Berlin.
Because of her body struc-.

gender has been questioned
and it was ruled that she
must take a gender test to see
if she meets the requirement
to compete as a woman.

State Changes for Drivers License
Beginning January, 2010 residents of Florida will be
required to provide more documentation in order to get a
license. Residents will be required to provide proof of
identification such as a certified copy of their birth certifi-
cate, a valid passport, a certification of naturalization or of
citizenship, as well as a social security card or a W-2 form
or a paycheck. They will also be required to show two
documents that contains their home address such as a
voter registration card, utility bills, insurance card, etc.
Even though the licenses will look the same, it will be
equivalent to a national ID card. Many are against this.

The Governor has already announced
that he is interested in replacing Sen. State Representative
Martinez as a Republican U. S. Senator Jennifer Carroll
so it is understood that if he should
select either Delaney or Carroll, it would be with an under-
standing that they would not run against himfor the seat. So,
would Republican Jennifer Carroll be his final choice?

I "There's A always Something HIappeninig On The First
'Just Friends' at The Phelts
The bi-monthly gathering of friends at American
Beach began quite by chance when a few retired
friends had fishing outings. To celebrate their 'bounty'
they would invite friends over for a 'fish fry'. As the
get-togethers continued, the group discovered how
much they enjoyed being in each other's company.
With this discovery, it was natural to make their vari-
able get- together events more formalized. And with
that, plans to gather together bi-monthly in the homes
of the group for food and fellowship took off!
The gatherings have been going on for quite some
time now and I can personally attest to how much fun
they have. We were the invited guests of Marsha and
Michael Phelts when The Pheltses entertained the
group recently and I have named the group 'Just
The joyous and relaxing evening overlooking the
Atlantic Ocean from the Pheltses home was a true
highlight of the 2009 Summer! It brought to mind one
of my favorite poet's creations.
By Kahlil Gibran
Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love
and reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger,
and you seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind
you fear not the "nay" in your own mind,
nor do you withhold the "ay."
And when he is silent,
your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all
desires, all expectations are born and shared,
with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him
may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain
to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship
save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its
own mystery is not love but a net cast forth:
and only the unprofitable is caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide,
let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should
seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship
let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds
its morning and is refreshed.
The Pheltses joined by The Frinks, Jimmy
McKinny, The.Mealings, The Millers, The
Robinsons, The Sheldons, and Mrs. Viola Walker
are examples of what Gibran describes in his poem.
They have been there through the highs and the lows
of the.group. They are each so Blessed!

Crawford became the Connectional Officer as the
Administrator of the newly legislated Debutante-Master Commission. She passed in December 1999. This dedi-
cation has been conducted as a part of a number of annual conferences and Episcopal districts ever since.
The Christian Debutante-Master Dedication Commission (DMC) introduces young people to Christian socie-
ty and celebrates their transition to adulthood. The DMC focuses on the period of transition from adolescence to
adulthood that many cultures consider "rites of passage." Through its adult advisors, the DMC reinforces the work
of Christian education by providing guidance and information for relevant study and fieldwork activities. DMC is .
a volunteer adult activity where members generously give of their time, talent, and resources to benefit others,
especially youth. No financial compensation is desired from the General Church. Moniies for the program are
raised primarily through volunteer'membership donations, sale of merchandise and an annual benefit banquet.
Membersof the DC are dedicated to the responsibility of helping young people in their pursuit of education and nte

According to Tiffany Reeves of the Florida Department of Financial Services,
all self-employed Floridians, regardless ofpre-existing health conditions, are guar-
anteed health insurance coverage under Florida Law ... but only if they enroll dur-
ing the month of August.
With health insurance a hot topic this summer, Reeves served as one of four .
panelists at a Health Insurance Forum presented by Beaver Street Enterprise
Center on August 17, 2009. Beaver Street's timely and well-attended workshop
also included panelists David Winters (licensed Aetna Insurance Agent), Sarreena "
Bennett (Benefits Specialist with Colonial Life), and Lionel and Janeen Smith of
Lionel Smith & Associates (Life Insurance Investment Specialists). y / I
Speaking on behalf of Florida's Chief Financial Officer, Alex Sink, Reeves .... ,,,, ......

etors and independent contractors who meet the criteria established by law and
provide documentation verifying the operation of an active business," Reeves said,
adding that policies written or renewed in August have a plan start date of October
"As a small .business owner, I thought it was a very helpful workshop.
The panelists were all very knowledgeable and it's good to know what our state
has to offer," said attendee Kim Meadows, President of Kadin Corporation, an
underground utility contracting company on the Southside and a member of JSEB
(Jacksonville Small and Emerging Business). "It will be interesting to see how the
federal government's plan plays into this," she added. Among the other small busi- _. _

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known for its
fearless approach to reality-based subjects! f =I
My best friend wants me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. I .
want to decline because her future husband is cheating. He's
been seeing someone else the whole time he's dated my friend.,
I don't want to tell her because it would break her heart but I
don't want her to marry him either. Do I need to go through with
the wedding to make her happy or risk the friendship by telling her?
Shannon Omaha, NE
You're a lousy friend because you should be able to tell your best friend anything. You
would be as guilty as the future husband if you know he's cheating but won't tell it.
They're going before God with adultery on the plate and you can prevent this by being
mature and doing the right thing. Pray for strength and words of wisdom as you get
the facts. Tell your friend about the situation and you'll be able to sleep better at night.
I met a guy a few years ago and we really felt a spark. I was dating someone else but
dumped him for the new guy. He had also met another female at the same time. As luck
would have it, I said or did something that spooked him and he started dating the other
lady. I went on with my life. After two years of staying in touch, his relationship ended
and he's back. He's still friendly with this ex-girlfriend and I'm scared to go back for
fear he'll do the same thing again. What do I do?
Confused Sacramento, CA
This isn't the only man you can have a relationship with and I suggest you look else-
where. If he dumped you the first time for someone else, he'll do it again. However, if
you're still feeling the spark, observe him much closer and take your time before get-
ting too serious. A woman's sixth sense is real. If your gut feeling is telling you to run
or something's not right, spare yourself some pain and follow your instincts.
In my marriage I always listened to my husband, let him make decisions and manage
the finances. Recently I was devastated to learn that he has a double life with another
wife, children and a home. I'm ready to stand up and fight but he's a bully and scar-
ing me. Is it worth it to get what's right for me and my children or should I let him go
and let things catch up in the long run?
Anonymous Dallas, TX
You can wait for the long run but you'll find yourself on the curb with your kids look-
ing stupid. You're entitled to alimony, child support, and everything else as a result of
his decision to commit adultery, be a liar and a two timing bigamist. As the first wife,
you have the court's favor as well as the favor of God as you proceed. Your husband
didn't think of you, your kids or the other woman while doing his dirt so why should
you. Call the judge, handle your business and keep it moving.

By Ulysses W. Watkins, Jr., M D
(Red Measels: Ruebola)
DEFINITION: A iral illness tdiat infects the Lespirato r
tract and skin. Thlus is one of the most contagious diseases
I known. Measles was once very common, but it is now less common due to immuniza-
tion. However, recent outbreaks have occurred due to low rates of immunization.
BODY PARTS INVOLVED: Skin; eyes; upper respiratory tract.
SEX OR AGE MOST AFFECTED: All ages, but most common in children.
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS: Measles symptoms usually occur in the following
I sequence: *Fever, often high; fatigue; appetite loss. *Sneezing and runny nose.
*Harsh, hacking cough. *Red eyes and sensitivity to light. *Koplik's spots (tiny white
spots) in the mouth and throat; reddish rash on the forehead and around ears that
spreads to the body.
CAUSES: Measles is caused by rubeola virus infection that chiefly affects the skin
and respiratory tract. The incubation period after exposure is 7 to 14 days.
RISK INCREASES WITH: *Crowded or unsanitary living conditions. *Population
groups that are not immunized. *Measles epidemics. The disease becomes more viru-
lent as it spreads.
HOW TO PREVENT: *Immunize children against measles. Prevention is important
I because measles can have rare, but serious, complications. *If a person has not been
immunized against measles and is exposed to it, a gamma globulin (antibodies) injec-
tion may prevent or reduce-the severity of the disease.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE: *Home care after diagnosis. *Doctor's treat-
DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES: *Medical history and exam by a doctor. *Diagnosis is
usually determined by the appearance of the spots; however, laboratory studies may be
required to rule out other disorders.
I POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS: *Ear and chest infections. *Pneumonia.
I *Encephalitis or meningitis. *Strep throat..
PROBABLE OUTCOME: *Symptoms usually subside after about 3 days. *A child
who has been immunized against measles will probably never develop it. A person
who has been passively immunized with gamma globulin is protected against measles
for about 3 months.
HOW TO TREAT:
I GENERAL MEASURES: *Treatment involves rest, relief of symptoms and iso-
lation during the communicable period. *Use of cool-mist, ultrasonic humidifier to
soothe the cough and to thin lung secretions so they can be coughed up more easily.
I Clean humidifier daily. *Take morning and evening temperatures; keep a record. If the
fever is 101F (38.3C) or higher, reduce it.
I MEDICATION: *Your doctor will not prescribe antibiotics for measles, which is a
I virus. However, if complications arise, such as pneumonia or middle-ear infection,
antibiotics may be necessary. *Don't give aspirin to a person younger than 18. Use acet-
I aminophen instead to relieve discomfort and reduce fever. Some research shows a link
between the use of aspirin in children during a virus illness and the development of
ACTIVITY: Rest until the fever and rash disappear. Encourage a child to rest, but
don't force it. Light activities are acceptable once eyes are not painful. Children should
I not return to school until 7 to 10 days after the fever and rash disappear.
DIET: No special diet. Drink extra fluids, including water, tea, lemonade, cola, and
fruit juice. Maintaining an adequate fluid intake is very important in keeping lung
I secretions thin and preventing lung complications.
I CALL YOUR DOCTOR: *You or your child have symptoms of measles. *The fol-
lowing occurs during treatment: *High fever, accompanied by a sore throat. *Severe
headache, even several weeks after infection. *Earache. *Convulsion. *Excessive
lethargy or drowsiness. *Breathing rate above 35 breaths-per-minute or breathing dif-

The Wall Street Devil Dance
Recent news reports say the devils are dancing in the

But only the rich man feels it.
Unemployment rates have gone down for some but those same rates have not
substantially decreased in America's ghettos, barrios, projects and slums.
Many poor people still can't find a job, still can't get a loan and will never be
able to afford the kind of health care that Presidents, Congress persons and other
elected officials have!
Yes, it appears as though the rash of stimulus packages are doing what they
intended to do.....keeping the rich from joining the poor in homeless shelters, in
soup lines and in jail cells.

powerful desire to take a risk. Don't
throw the baby out with the bathwa-

New Moon in your home zone on
Thursday. If you want to remodel your

You may have to work by intuitive feel
and go with the flow. With care, you
will not only do the right thing, but
succeed beyond your wildest

that a message or phone call pushes
you to take action on an issue sooner
than you might otherwise.

You may have many wonderfully
bright ideas, but be stuck for words.

VIOLATION OF INJUNCTION AND
An officer was dispatched to the 6000 block of Kinnon Drive regarding the suspect
violating an injunction for protection. When the officer arrived, the suspect was in
the front yard. When asked who called the police, he stated, "Yeah I called, I need
to go to jail. I'm violating an injunction." The victim approached the officer with
her three children and advised him that she and the suspect were married but sepa-
rated, pending a divorce. She confirmed the injunction and stated that when she
arrived home, she observed the suspect's truck and saw through the rear window that
her house was in disarray. The suspect said, "I'm an idiot. I did something stupid. I
just vandalized my own house." The officer went into the house and discovered
extreme damage to the interior of the house and the front burglar bar. The suspect
had smashed the large fish tank and water was running all over the floor, leaving the
fish exposed; he had smashed the microwave, the big screen TV, bed, headboard,
master bedroom and had left the water running in an attempt to flood the house. The
damage made the house uninhabitable. The officer turned off the water to prevent
further damage, had the victim to fill out paper work and arrested the suspect.
UNLAWFUL USE OF ID
The officer observed two women engaging in a dispute in the 2000 block of Yulee
Street. He separated the women and questioned why they were having this dispute.
One of the women presented a driver's license that did not match her face. When
questioned about the difference in look, the suspect stated that she was the person
on the license. The officer ran a check and found that the suspect matched another
female that had three outstanding warrants. The face of the person with the warrants
also matched the suspect that was talking with the officer. The suspect was then fin-
gerprinted and it was discovered that her fingerprints matched the fingerprints of the
person with the outstanding warrants also. ID & records confirmed that the suspect
was in fact the person with the warrant, not the person she claimed to be. Had the
suspect successfully used the victim's ID, the victim would have been listed erro-
neously as the second suspect in the dispute originally observed which would have
resulted in an adverse affect of the real owner. The suspect was read her rights and
SUSPICIOUS NEIGHBOR CAUSES
THIEVES TO LEAVE EMPTY HANDED
Officer was dispatched to a residence. Upon his arrival, he met with the witness. The
witness stated he heard a loud bang and looked outside his window. The witness
observed two males standing by the side door of his neighbor's house. The suspects
were observed going into the residence and the coming out of the side door of the
house. The witness stated he thinks the suspects saw him looking out the window as
they were running away from the residence. The two suspects ran back to the wit-
ness's front door and began to ring the door bell. The witness yelled through the
door to get away from his front door and that they better leave because he contact-
ed the police. The two suspects then proceeded to run behind the house and into the
woods. Witness did not see anything in the suspects' hands as they fled the scene.
A FAMILY THAT FIGHTS TOGETHER
GOES TO JAIL TOGETHER
Upon officer arrival he was met by Mr. M. Mr. M.stated that he came home, went
to his room and locked the door. He was sitting on his bed when Mrs. M came into
the room. She became upset at him and slapped his sweet potato pie out of his hands.
He got off of the bed and Mrs. M started throwing things at him. He grabbed her and
she bit him. They exchanged punches several times until he left the residence. Mrs.
M stated, she and Mr. M got into a verbal argument. He became upset and started
hitting her. He punched her several times in-the side and she threw things at him to
get him away. Witness # 1 and Witness # 2 were both present during the altercation.
They advised both suspects were exchanging punches and throwing things at each
other. They believed both parties were mutual in the battery. Police observed a few
marks on Mr. M's face and arm as well as Mrs. M's body. The house was in disar-
ray and it appeared things had been thrown around. Due to conflicting stories from
the suspects and the witnesses' statements, both suspects were arrested and trans-
ported. The suspects are married and live together as a family.
WAS HE LYING OR TELLING THE
Officer was flagged down at Confederate Point Road in reference to two males steal-
ing air conditioner units. The unknown citizen told him that two black males were
loading air conditioner units into a white Volvo with Florida tags, beside the Safeco
Store on Confederate Point Road. Upon arrival, Police observed the white Volvo
exiting the parking lot. He could see an air conditioner unit in the front seat and one
in the back seat. They were both partially covered up with towels and clothing.
Officer stopped the vehicle and made contact with the driver, Suspect M. He was the
only person in the vehicle. Suspect was read his rights and questioned about the
units. He was very evasive and would not directly answer specific questions. What
he was telling the officer made little sense and he changed his story several times.
Suspect eventually told the officer that he does side jobs for B and G Refrigeration,
and the units belong to that company. He further said that the male that was helping
him load the units into the car is named "K." He said that "K" gave him the units so
he could install them into a customer's house for B and G Refrigeration. Officer
made contact with the owner ofB and G, who denied everything that the suspect told
the officer. He also made contact with "K" who claimed he never met or spoke to
suspect M. Suspect M was then transported to the Police Department and inter-
viewed by a detective. Although he could not provide a reasonable explanation as to
where he got the units, who they belonged to, or why he had them, he continued to
deny that they were stolen. Suspect M was then released because the units were
never reported stolen.

More Men Need to Commit to
Mentoring In Schools
by William Jackson and Gwen Lovett Hall
"Give children a sense of belonging, acceptance, and
-Pastor Gregory Dickow
The call is out, the mission is clear, and the
need is there. Teachers cannot do it alone we need help
from parents, specifically men. Men are being chal-
lenged to mentor a child in our schools systems with
this knowledge of need it is not as hard as it sounds to
be a mentor and volunteer in schools; it just takes a
healthy passion and honest concern for kids to be suc-
cessful in school and life. Responsible, concerned and
mature men can help young men be successful and
overcome challenges that distract them from academic
and social success.
Mothers Traditional Role
Mothers have traditionally been the main inter-
cessor for school visits. However with the challenges
youth are experiencing in society, circumstances are
demanding more men to make a commitment and be
active to perform the duty as mentors and volunteers.
It is imperative for men to go into the schools
to volunteer, be mentors and positive role models, to
help and contribute to the education of our school age
young men and to battle the school-to-prison pipeline.
There are significant results when men show concern.
Social behavior improves, academic growth is evident
in grades and testing, overall respect for teachers
improves, and graduation rates go up because of the
involvement of concerned males. If we can fill seats at
football games, basketball games, and other extracur-
ricular events why can't men attend parent/teacher
conferences, school board meetings, open house, etc?
Even if the mother is theprimary care provider men
must continue to have a role in their children's lives.
Validation Through Data
Data validates men being involved in children's
lives; I'm making reference to all men being involved
not just involved in their biological children's lives, but
other children as well. Schools should be providing
men an opportunity to participate in events geared just
to them to help with social behavior and guidance to
academic success for children especially boys. Data
from NHES '96 and 'NCES '97 has shown that a dad's
absence in the home through separation, divorce,
incarceration and in some cases extended military
service leads to dangerous trends that children try to
cope with. The loss or absence of the father can result
in grieving for children and this grieving can result in
behavioral changes and challenges in the classroom
that teachers try to address, but do not have the proper
training to address the needs of students and teach
effectively. Let's not forget that when students get to
middle and high school they are confronted with the
pressures of performance academic standards, state
assessments, peer pressure, -drugs and pressures to.
have sex so the need for a strong male figure is need-
ed; even an ear to listen to students concerns and prob-
lems with just growing up. Ken King, community
organizer from Birmingham, Ala. states, "the statistics
that children who grow up without a father are five
times more likely to live in poverty, and commit crime,
nine times more likely to drop out of school and twen-
ty timesmore likely to end up in prison." Fatherhood
Facts (fatherhood.com) has cited studies, children with
involved, loving fathers are significantly more. likely to
do well in school, have a healthy self esteem, exhibit
empathy and pro-social behavior, and avoid a high risk
behaviors such as drug use, truancy, and criminal activ-
ity compared to children who have uninvolved fathers;
but the correlation that I relate as a father, teacher and
menitor myself is directed to men being involved in a
child's life, not just father to their biological child, but
helping another child as well.
Malcolm X, "Education is our passport to the
future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who pre-
pare for it today." Mentors help our children prepare
for tomorrows college entrance, social accountability,
job searches, and even decisions to join the military.
Today's jobs will require more than a high school edu-
cation so graduating from high school is a ,priority.
Theodore Roosevelt said "To educate a man in mind
and not in morals is to educate a menace to society".
Mentors and volunteers contribute to the overall holis-
tic growth of the students not just in academics, but
accountability, ethics and social morals.
Educational Levels for Mentors
The educational levels of mentors should not
hinder their contribution. They can contribute to stu-
dents, whether they are college grads, high school
grads or graduates from vocational programs or mili-
tary service all can bring something to the table. There
are just some things a book'nor computer can teach, a
computer cannot teach a firm handshake, a computer
cannot teach looking a person in the eyes when speak-
ing to them, a book cannot effectively teach putting on
a neck tie and why, nor how to carry one's self in a job
interview, a book cannot teach how and why to articu-
late words when-speaking on a job and not using slang,
a book cannot instill in young men why they should
pull their'pants up and wearing a belt when going to
school, church or work. Those who denounce these
teachings to improve our young men's appearance and
self confidence are setting our young men up for fail-
ure, embarrassment and a continuation of a stereotypi-
cal slave mentality. This teaching is for young men of
all races not just Blacks.
Legacies To Leave Behind
Teaching children social nuances' and etiquette
is not in curriculums nor addressed in state standards.
Character traits like: strong work ethic, honesty, humil-
ity, modeling appropriate dress, the importance of
responsibility, accountability, and even ethics and
morals need to be taught and modeled. Men who are
blue and white collar workers, serving in the military,
and serving in the clergy, are needed as mentors and
volunteers in schools across this country. Even in bib-
lical times the understanding of leaving a positive lega-
cy was known, the Bible says in Hosea 4:6, "My peo-
ple are destroyed from lack of knowledge", our men-
tors and volunteers can provide much needed knowl-
edge from how to shine and excel in the school house
to surviving and growing in the corporate house.
"Fathers are boys' first teachers and coaches; they're
our mentors and role models. Men set examples of suc-
cess and push us to succeed ourselves, encourage us
when we're struggling; loving us even when we disap-
point them; standing by us when no one else will', stat-
ed by President Barack Obama 2009. If a young man
does not have an active father then it is the men-
tor/volunteer who can make a contribution to fill that
gap. We are a high tech society, but how can our young
men compete when they have low tech mentalities and
In these turbulent times as stated by Bob Wise,
President of the Alliance for Excellent Education, "The
best economic stimulus package is a diploma". The
call is out, the mission is clear and the need is there.
Men, many schools need your help throughout our
country to encourage our children, especially those
who have no positive role models in their lives or their
models are leading them down the wrong paths. Make
a change, make a difference mentor/volunteer this
school year and make a difference in a young person's

I COMMUNITY TRIEDS
IT'S THE LAW!
YOUNG MEN MUST
(NAPSM)-There's good news
for young men living in the United
States. It's easier than ever to regis-
ter with the Selective Service
System. This is important since reg-
istration is required by law. To help,
here are some tips:
It's The Law
The law requires virtually all
male U.S. citizens and immigrants
to register withrthe Selective Service
System. To be in full compliance
with the law, men turning '18 are
required to register during the period
of time beginning 30 days before
until 30 days after, their 18th birth-
day-a 60day window. This applies
regardless of where they live. It also
applies to male immigrants residing
in the U.S. no matter their immigra-
Men who have registered
remain eligible for federal student
aid, most federal jobs and federal
job training. Male noncitizens living
in the U.S. who are 18 through 25
must register to remain eligible for
citizenship. Many states and territo-
ries require registration for a driver's
It is now possible for a man to
submit registration information early,
as long as he is at least 17 years
and 3 months old.
Where And How To Register
* Register Online. Go to
www.sss.gov and click on the regis-
tration icon. It only takes a minute to
complete the registration. When you
submit your information, you get a
registration number instantly.
* At the post office. Selective Service
"mailback" registration forms are

citizens to register with the Selective
Service System. Fortunately, it's now
possible to do so online.
available at any U.S. Postal Service
facility. Men living overseas may
register at any U.S. embassy or con-
* By mail a young man may also reg-
ister by filling out a Reminder
Mailback Card. Selective Service
sends this card to many young men
around ,the time they turn 18.
Mailback cards are also available at
some post offices.
* The federal student aid form.
Another way a young man can reg-
ister is to check a box 'on the appli-
cation form for Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA form).
Simply check "Yes" on Box No. 29 of
that form and the Department of
Education will furnish Selective
Service with the information to regis-
ter the man.
* At school. Most of the high schools
in the nation have a staff member or
teacher appointed as a Selective
Service Registrar. These individuals
help register young men.
Penalties For Not Complying
Those who don't comply face
fines of up to $250,000, a prison
sentence of up to five years or both.
Plus, they are ineligible for student
financial aid and job training pro-

Healthy Vacations For Less
(NAPSM)-For many who are watching their budgets this
year, finding no and low-cost recreation opportunities close to
home not only helps them explore and enjoy the places they live
in, but also offers an opportunity to stay active and live healthier.
AARP and the National Recreation and Park Association
recently teamed up for the third year to promote the benefits of
walking-particularly for people over the age of 50. Guided by
AARP's 10-Week Walking Program, the collaboration is part of a
broader goal to help prevent illness and keep people well through
positive lifestyle changes.
The program helps participants find safe places to walk and
provides tools to help them stick with their exercise plan.
Public parks and recreation facilities present an often-
untapped resource, offering a multitude of fun, affordable options to
connect with friends, family and community-and to help people get
moving or stay active.
At a public park or rec center, you can:
* Gather a friend or two and set out to explore a new trail system
each week. Walking is a great form of exercise.
* Volunteer. It's a great way to get involved and share your expert-
ise with youth. Park cleanup days are an excellent way to be physi-
cally active while beautifying your community. Many coaching and
mentoring opportunities exist that can enrich your life while also
enriching that of a child.
* Cool off and enjoy the public pool this summer. Swimming is a
great exercise when it's hot and you'll incur less stress on your
joints. Don't forget to drink water and hydrate after swimming.
Many people forget since they're surrounded by water, but you do
need to replenish after any exercise.
* Visit local museums and places of historic interest. Walking is an
effective form of exercise even if you do it inside. Being active dur-
ing your vacation is easier than you might imagine. With a little
planning, you may even return in better shape than when you left.
Find out more at www.aarp.org/walkingguide. Tips are also
available in Spanish.
Walking every day is a great way to stay in shape during
your vacation and it can be a fun way to explore the area you live

WCGL CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF SERVICE
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Victory AM 1360 WCGL became
Jacksonville's first full-time radio station with an all-gospel music for-
mat in 1979 with the commitment to present the word of God to the
Jacksonville community. While the local radio industry has encoun-
tered hundreds of ownership, format and personnel changes during
this period, WCGL has remained "Jacksonville's Longtime Friend'
with the same management team for 20 of the past 30 years.
"I have been blessed to lead this great organization over the past 20
years," said Deborah Maiden, owner and general manager of
WCGL. "Our mission has remained intact since 1989 and I am
extremely proud that we have not wavered in our desire to serve this
community with great gospel music while presenting the word of
God through the various ministries that air on our radio station daily.
That is why we have no problem with our trademark, Victory AM
1360 WCGL, Where Christ Gets Lifted."
This year, WCGL will commemorate its 30th anniversary with a
gospel celebration concert on Saturday, November 7th at the 5,000-
seat Paxon Revival Center, 5461 Commonwealth Avenue. Gospel
recording artists scheduled to appear will be the legendary Canton
Spirituals, Vickie Yohe, The Nevels Sisters, Keith "Wonderboy"
Johnson, and James Fortune & FIYA. Vendor space is available
inside the church's atrium.
