apologized after many complained and said they
will change the ad.

the things hurting America in many ways.

"There 's Always A
City Kids Exhibition Draws Packed House


Jacksonville, FL. Dynamic landscapes, colorful
abstracts, detailed portraits, fluorescent clothes made
of duct tape, sculptures, masks, murals, miniatures and
more delighted' the dozens of art lovers fortunate
enough to attend the annual Qity Kids Art Factory
"Arts in the Summer" exhibition. The works are the
culmination of 10-weeks of immersion in fine-art edu-
cation provided at the Durkeeville-based non-profit art
institute.
Each year CKAF hosts a 10-week summer pro-
gram and is open for winter and spring breaks. By
keeping the kids on task during school vacations, their
focus on learning is not lost. The students range from
ages 8 to 17 years old.
An outside mural on the City Kids Art Factory
says it all about the mission for the benefit of the
neighborhood, passers-by, and future students:
"Where art and community come together." The studio
provides children and teenagers a secure place to
express their creativity with the structure and guidance
of a supervised art program. The students give one
another feedback and the older kids help the young
ones. Some of the kids have been part of the City Kids
Art Factory for years and have become very talented
students.
Jerome Robinson, a student at First Coast High
School, says he is confident that the six years he's
spent in the CKAF program developing his contempo-
rary style will give him a valuable leg up when he
applies to colleges. That's because CKAF is more than
an arts and crafts program. The goal is to encourage
interest in the arts while providing professional visual
arts instruction in a location central to the community.
Pulsing with bold lines and vivid colors 17 year old
Jerome's patriotic depiction of Americans marching
for solidarity and civil rights is just one qf the exciting
works now on display at .the City Kids Art Factory
(CKAF).
The Honorable Mia Jones\was just one of the
community leaders, supporters, art lovers and family
members who turned out to enjoy the results of the
summer art experience.
City Kids Art Factory enables artistic expression
and provides a venue to showcase talented kids.
This wouldn't be possible without the support of indi-
viduals -and community sponsors. This year the
Comcast Cable Community Investment Grant pro-
gram awarded CKAF $3,000 to support the
Durkeeville-based non-profit. CKAF also receives
funding from the Cultural Council of Greater
Jacksonville, the City of Jacksonville, EMMW Legacy
Fund, the Community Foundation, the Winn Dixie
Foundation and the Rotary Club of South Florida

Kwesi Boakye: Small Youngster With Big Talent!


By Rych McCain/
feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net
Photos by Armando
Estrada


His size may be'
small physically but
mentally and talent
wise, this ten year-
old is a major giant!
Kwesi Boakye is a
native of Los
Angeles where he
was born and reared.
His parents emigrat-
ed from Ghana, West
Africa. Kwesi actu-
ally began his show-
biz career literally
while he was an
infant. His two older
brothers who are
also actors had
already been signed
to. an agency. One
day their mom
brought little broth-
er Kwesi in his
basinet to the
agency to pick up
her other sons and
the agent signed the
child to do a com-
mercial. Young'
Boakye has been on
the go every since.
Boakye has done a
number of commer-
cials both print and
TV and has appeared
on many TV shows
such as "Strong


Medicine," "The
Shield," "Til Death"
"Boston Legal" to
name a couple and
even had a two year
run on the hit day
time soap "Days of
Our Lives" as
Artemis. Boakye's
latest project is his
role as Manny in
Tyler Perry's new
film I Can Do Bad
All By Myself. In the
film, Boakye's char-
acter Manny, his
brother Bryon and
big sister Jennifer
are caught looting
Madea's home by
Madea. She sends
them to their only
relative April who is
a night club singer
and really doesn't
want them.
When describing
his role, Boakye
states, "The movie is
mostly about three
kids who are going
through a family cri-
sis.". What was his
reaction playing the.
nephew of Oscar
nominated actress
Taraji P. Henson?
Boakye \smiles, "It
was fun being her
nephew because
every time on set she


is really funny and it
was fun to hang out
with her." In regard
to the entire film
making process
Boakye keeps his
grin going; "It was a
very fun experience
because I got to
shoot in Atlanta and
I got to work with a
lot of different cast
members and I
learned a lot." After
filming the Perry
movie, Boakye
retuned to Los
Angeles where he is
a regular series cast
member on the new
Ray Ramono Show.
The public often
hears stories about
child actors who
don't have a child-
hood or go off on an
anti-social- path
because they weren't
brought up so-called
normal (whatever
that is). How does
Boakye evaluate his
childhood so far? He
explains, "Yeah, I
am actually having a
good life growing up
in show business.
My mom makes sure
that I'm not just a
little cooped up
actor. She lets me go


out and hang out
with my friends and
I can play basketball
and soccer with
them." What are his
favorite subjects in
school? He lights
up, "My favorite
subject is math
because I'm very
good at it and I've
been good at it since
I was in kinder-
garten so I'm really
attached to math.
And I actually like
to read a lot. I'm
actually reading
Twilight and that's
why I ,like Robert
Pattin'son so much."
Will Boakye be an
actor all of his life?
He says, "Yes, I
think I will stay an
actor all of my life
because I've been
doing it since I was
like ten' months and
I just got so attached
to it. So that's why I
think I'll be an actor
all my. life." As
intelligent and sharp
as Boakye is at this*
stage of the game,
he can be anything
he wants. -

it's occupants are
unloaded and placed
in a secluded con-

guards to separate
them from the

Black Press Leaders: Kennedy Legacy Reinvigorates Race for Justice


In his maiden
speech to the U. S.
Senate on April 9,
1964, Sen. Edward
M. Kennedy sud-
denly switched
gears. He pointed
out that he had
planned to speak on
"industry and
employment in my
home state" of
Massachusetts.
But, he couldn't.
Not at that moment.
Instead, he was
compelled to
address H.R.7152,
the Civil Rights Act
of 1963 on which
the Senate had
resumed considera-
tion. In his con-
science at that
moment, it was not
his home state, but
the nation that
called the loudest.
"To limit myself
to local issues in
the face of this
great national ques-
tion would be to
demean the seat in
which I sit, which
has been occupied


by some of the most
distinguished cham-
pions of the cause
of freedom," he
stated in that maid-
en address.
That declaration
began the tenure of
one who will be
forever known as
the "lion of the U'.
S. Senate." From
the very beginning,
his courageous and
principled stances
struck chords
across the nation.
He not only spoke
for, but vehemently
fought for issues
that many Whites at
that time refused to
understand.
"For them and.for
the rest of America,
his leadership
brought hope and
enlightenment. And
46 years later, even
the reflections of
that leadership
upon his death con-
tinue to engender
,hope for people of
all races, socio-
economic back-


grounds and walks
of life," said Danny
Bakewell, Chair of
the National
N e w s p a p e r
Publishers
Association.
"From the Public
Accommodations
Act, to school
desegregation, to
Medicare Benefits,
to voting rights, to
equal economic
opportunities, to
sickle cell anemia
research, to the
Martin Luther King
holiday, to AIDS
education, to the
increase of the min-
imum wage, to his
pioneering fight for
health care, to his
endorsement of
then presidential
candidate Barack
Obama, Sen. Ted
Kennedy carried a
torch well ahead of
his colleagues. It
was the torch of
equal justice,"
according to
Dorothy R. Leavell,
chair of the


National Newspaper
Publishers
A-s s o c i atio n
Foundation.
"The Black Press
of America is
proudly familiar
with that torch. The
National Newspaper
Publishers
Association gives
thanks for Sen. Ted
Kennedy for fight-
ing the good fight
and running a hero-
ic race. We thank
him for refusing to
bow to the consen-
sus or duck when
the blows got hard.
"Because he
remained steady, we
are heartened by his
courage. Because
he never flinched,
we too are reinvig-
orated to continue
running the race
and fighting the
good fight for free-
dom, justice and
equality for all,"
The Black Press
chairs concluded.

Statement from President Obama on
Kennedy


the death of Sen.

to discuss national service. April 21, 2009. White House Photo/ Chuck Kennedy.


Michelle and I
were heartbroken
to learn this
morning of the
death of our dear
friend, Senator
Ted Kennedy.
For five
.decades, virtually
every major piece
of legislation to
advance the civil
rights, health and
economic well,
being of the
American people
bore his name and
resulted from his
efforts.
I valued his
wise counsel in
the Senate, where,
regardless of the
swirl of events, he
always had time


for a new col-
league. I -cher-
ished his confi-
dence and
momentous sup-
port in my race
for the
Presidency. And
even as he waged
a valiant struggle
with a mortal ill-
ness, I've profited
as President from'
his encourage-
ment and wisdom.
An important
chapter in our his-
tory has come. to
an end. Our coun-
try has lost a great
leader, who
picked up the
torch of his fallen
brothers and
became the great-


est United States
Senator of our
time.


And


the


Kennedy family
has lost their
patriarch, a tower
of strength and
support through
good times and
bad.
Our hearts and
prayers go out to
them today--to his
wonderful .wife,
Vicki, his chil-


dren


Ted Jr.,


Patrick and Kara,
his grandchildren
and his extended
family.

Council Continued from A-1
dialogue and other related programs.
The JHRC serves all the citizens of Jacksonville regardless of race, color, national
origin, gender, age, familial status, religious beliefs or disability.
There is a belief among some elected officials that the JHRC's efforts to protect the
individual human rights of those in our community, duplicate the efforts of federal
agencies such as the EEOC and HUD. This is simply not the case. To eliminate the
Human Rights Commission means that residents will not have a local agency to
resolve issues in the areas of employment, housing and the exercise of civil rights.
Citizens' ability to obtain assistance will be deferred to an already overburdened fed-
eral or state agency thus limiting the individual's ability to obtain a complete and
thorough examination of his or her complaint.
More importantly, the City Council believes that eliminating the Human Rights
Commission is a cost-saving measure. However, the Human Rights Commission
helps to preserve approximately $28 million in funding through the Community
Development Block Grant program and to provide support to other City agencies
that apply for federal grants (roughly $10-20 million dollars.)
Closing the JHRC sends a sad message that the City doesn't care about protecting
the rights of our diverse population or eliminating the racial disparities that exist in
health, employment, education, or the criminal justice system. These are critical
issues that affect our community since over 0~1% of the complaints investigated by
the Human Rights Commission are filed by African-Americans.
Now is not the time to turn back the hands of time! Now is the time to let our voic-
es be heard!
Please contact Rules Committee members and ask that they support the continued
funding of the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission.

establish his innocence with Justice Clarence Thomas, who grew up in Savannah.
Troy's sister explained how she was practically forced to change her career as a dec-
orated military person who, served in the Desert Storm because of her belief that her
brother was innocent. She said that even many blacks in the Savannah community,
including the churches, did not assist.
It was later learned that many of the witness against Troy said that they were direct-
ed in their testimony, and some said they were even threaten. After many years,
seven of the nine who testified against Troy changed their report.
During the conference, it was pointed out tha'tthe major witness for the prosecutor
is believed to have been the person who killed Officer Mark Allen MacPhail. In fact,
others have implicated another man in the shooting.
On August 17, Chief U.S. District Judge William T. Moore Jr. of Savannah was
assigned to preside over the evidentiary hearing for Troy Davis. Moore had not, as
of Wednesday, scheduled a hearing date.
Troy Davis' family is asking for support of the community since this man will be
given the opportunity to go on with his life. He has been in prison for twenty years.
The state's case is weak against Davis and according to the information provided at
the conference, once they had Davis, who volunteered to go to the police department
to show he was innocent, they never sought anyone else for the crime. The state's
case is relying almost exclusively on eyewitness testimony and again, seven of the
nine witnesses against Davis have since recanted, and the other two have notable
conflicts of interest but prosecutors are still standing by the conviction.

A good example was demonstrated in Brunswick Wednesday. As you can observe,
most of the people holding up signs are older people who more than likely have
Medicare which is automatic when you reach 65 years of age. Yet, their signs say.
that they do not want government, insurance. Medicare is government insurance.

In Brunswick and much of Southern Georgia and Florida, if you just get basic cable,
the only news channel that comes with the package is Fox news.
Americans voted Democratic. Americans voted for President Obama. Now, you
must use the power that you have and tell those who you voted for to use their power.
We cannot continue the bickering. Something must be done. Efforts haye been
made to reach across the aisle and that is not working so, just write to your represen-
tatives in Washington and tell them to use their power. You use yours, and tell them
to use theirs. There are enough Democrats in Washington to get health care for all
Americans. There is enough power in Washington to discontinue the practice of get-
ting the rich richer, and the poor broke and sick.
In Florida, the Democratic senator is Senator Bill Nelson, (202) 224-6551; billnel-
son.senate.gov. The Democratic representatives are: Kendrick Meek, kendrick-
meek.house.gdv; Katherine Castor, castor.house.gov; Alcee Hastings, alceehast-

money or reason. For example, a pastor of a small church in southwest Oklahoma
who would go every Sunday alone with the hope that someone would join her in
prayer. She was found slain last Monday. Pastor Carol Daniels was 61 years of
age. The town has a population of about 6,600 people and it was an A-frxme
church. The question is WHY?
Some blame drugs, so-mae blame younger people having children too early, some
blame poor parenting skills, some say because there is not enough male participa-
tion in the lives of our children, some blame the lack of quality education, little
money, poor housing, no jobs, other people.
We have been blessed to have a young man who has made a video. It is not for
sale. His wish is for it to be shown in school systems, churches and other organi-
zations for our youth to see in hope of helping a lost generation of kids that he
feels America has forgotten. The Florida Star is waiting for a copy to have it dis-
tributed around Florida. It was created by the very brilliant Reggie Bullock from

R.andous Bowens -

A 25 Year Old

Who Went for the Doctorate

For The Florida Star
My name is Randous Bowens. I'm 25 years old
and I'm from Kokomo, Indiana. I moved to Florida
in January of 2007 to attend the University of St.
Augustine for Health Sciences in St. Augustine, FL.
I am now set to graduate on August 14, 2009. I grad-
uated from University of St. Augustine for Health
Sciences with a doctorate in physical therapy. I com-
pleted my bachelors degree at Indiana University in
Bloomington, IN: My degree from Indiana
University was in Exercise Science. Physical thera-
py wasn't always the career I. wanted to pursue.
Coming in as a freshman at Indiana University, I
knew I wanted to work with ath-
letes, but I had no idea which
career would be the best fit for me. I originally
opted to pursue athletic training, but later on in
the semester I decided against it because I want-
ed a career that would allow me to work in a
variety of settings, not just athletics.
As I began to think about what career I want-
ed to pursue I thought back to when I was an ath-
lete in high school. I remembered our school
physical therapist, and how cool I thought he
was. All of the students liked him and would
stop by his training room just to chat at times. At
that point I decided to give physical therapy a
shot.
I went in with the idea of working in a
school setting, but I realized that physical thera-
py provided opportunities to work in a variety of
other settings as well. I declared exercise science as my major with the intent of going
to graduate school to pursue a degree and career in physical therapy,
I was always a good student in school and my family was always supportive of me.I
was always driven to do something special with my life; something that would help peo-
ple. Not only do I want a great life for myself, but also my family back home because I
know it means so much to them, and that makes me happy.
My parents have been there for me throughout this entire ride and I am truly grate-
ful for that. My brother has also supported me as I have supported him with his career.
I have had the support of my entire family back home and all ovqr the country, so all of
their love and support must be factored into my recent and future accomplishments.
I am going back to Indiana to begin my career to help people in the place that gave
me a start and a chance to succeed.
I'm pleased with my choice of a career in physical.therapy because my training
allows me to be versatile so that I can treat people of many different backgrounds.
My objective as a physical therapist is to restore a person's normal, pain-free move-
ment so that person can return to whatever functional activities he or she is unable to per-
form due to a specific impairment or impairments of the muscular and skeletal systems
of the body.
I am interested in working in an outpatient or inpatient rehabilitation setting. I also
want to work in a high school system to provide care to student athletes and students with
disabilities. I aspire to open my own outpatient physical therapy clinic at some point in
my career.
S God has brought me to where I am and for that I'm truly thankful.

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known for its
fearless approach to reality-based subjects! .

Dear Deanna!
I got into an-argument with my boyfriend's mother and she called me
out of my name and I did it back to her. Next thing I know, my
boyfriend beat me-up. To make a long story short, I pressed charges
against him and now his mother is begging me to drop the charges.
He is on parole and this will cause him to go to jail. Everybody is mad
at me but nobody cares that he beat me up and his mother started it all. What should I do?
Sheron On-Line Reader
Dear Sheron:
It's not your fault his mother didn't teach him not to hit women. But you should've respect-
ed her more and held your tongue instead of running your mouth. Regardless, his mother
isn't going to roll out the red carpet for you and you're going to always have problems
because this situation won't be easily forgotten. This is not your husband and if it was any
other man, you would let the charges remain. On that note, get ready for court, stay your
distance from the entire family and try to get your life started on'a better note.

Dear Deanna!
I let my friend use my credit card number for an online purchase. She was only supposed to
purchase a few things from E-bay and then return the card. When I got my bill there were
a lot of strange purchases, fees from online music downloads and restaurant delivery orders.
I confronted her and she denied it. My credit card is maxed out beyond my budget and I
can't pay the bill. I don't know what to do because my credit rating and my friendship is at
risk.
Anonymous Las Vegas, NV
Dear Anonymous:
You should take a closer look at your friend because if she needed to use your credit card
she just might be broke. If you really wanted to help her, you should've made the purchas-
es for her and kept your information to yourself. There's not much you can do but pay the
bill because you willingly gave her your credit card. In the future, just say no, learn who
your friends are and make better decisions with your finances.

Dear Deanna!
I got pregnant by my boyfriend and married him under pressure. I didn't have a problem liv-
ing with him but everybody else's opinions got to me so I married him. I feel I made a mis-
take because he's a rude male chauvinist, very disrespectful and leaves junk all over the
place. He wasn't like this before. Now that we're married, I don't like him, I don't love him
and I don't know him. How do I get out of this situation?
Mistaken Wife Oklahoma City, OK
Dear Mistaken Wife:
Things were fine when you were playing house with no commitment. You made a big mis-
take that became worse when you married him under the false pretense of love. If the situ-
ation is this bad now, a crying baby is not going to help. You need to try some counseling
immediately. If that doesn't work, be completely honest with himr about your feelings and
make plans to end the relationship and plan how you both will raise the baby and keep it
moving.

By Ulysses W. Watkins, Jr., M.D.
MOTION SICKNESS
(Car, Sea or Air Sickness)
GENERAL INFORMATION
DEFINITION: An unpleasant, temporary disturbance
that occurs while traveling, characterized by dizziness and
stomach upset.
BODY PARTS INVOLVED Semicircular canals in the inner ear. These fluid-
filled canals maintain balance.

SEX OR AGE MOST AFFECTED: Both sexes; all ages.

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS: Loss of appetite Nausea and vomiting Spinning
sensation Weakness and unsteadiness Confusion Yawning
CAUSES: Motion, especially airplane, boat or car, amusement park rides or
, swinging. Irregular motion causes fluid changes in the semicircular canals of the inner
ear, which transmit signals to brain's vomiting center.
RISK INCREASES WITH
Don't eat large meals or drink alcohol before or during travel. Sit in areas of
the airplane (usually over the wings) or boat with the lease motion. Recline in your
seat, if possible. Breathe slowly and deeply. Avoid areas where others are smok-
ing, if possible. On an airplane or bus, turn on the overhead air vent to improve air
circulation. Don't rad. Take medication to prevent motion sickness before you
travel. Some airlines have developed behavior-modification techniques for those
who are afraid to fly or have motion sickness. Contact the airline or your travel agent
for information. Psychological factors contribute to motion sickness. Try to resolve
concerns about travelbefore leaving home. Maintain positive attitude. Consider pre-
ventative therapy. One technique involves desensitization (special training for using
your eyes that may help avoid the symptoms of motion sickness).
WHAT TO EXPECT
DIAGNOSTIC.MEASURES: Your own observation of symptoms. *
Medical history and physical exam by a doctor, if motion sickness is recurrent and
interferes with your life.

APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE: Self-care. ** Doctor's treatment, if
you have a chronic illness that may be worsened by vomiting. Psychotherapy or
counseling, if your occupation or lifestyles requires travel and you usually develop
motion sickness.

S POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS: Dehydration from vomiting. Falls and
injuries from unsteadiness.
HOW TO TREAT

GENERAL MEASURES: Once you have the symptoms, try to rest in a dark
room with a cool cloth over the eyes and forehead. Allowing yourself to vomit can
help the nausea. Don't make yourself vomit.

MEDICATION: For minor discomfort, you may use non-prescription drugs,
such as dimenhydrinate (Dramamine), before and during travel. Your doctor may
prescribe scopolamine patches to control symptoms. Remove promptly after travel is
I completed; long-term use is not recommended.

ACTIVITY: To minimize symptoms during travel, rest in a reclining position and
fix your gaze on a distant object.

DIET: Eat lightly or not at all before and during brief trips. For longer trips, sip
frequently on beverages don't take large drinks to maintain your fluid intake.
Avoid alcohol, carbonated drinks and extra cold beverages.
CALL YOUR DOCTOR IF:
You plan to travel and have had disabling motion sickness in the past.

Health Care Pony Show
Have you been keeping up with the current heath care
debate? Be careful what bandwagon you choose to ride
Son because the road is not only rough, it's also muddied!
What's currently taking place in many of America's
cities is billed as "town hall meeting" but experienced
lobbyists and politicos refer to the gatherings as "dog and pony shows"!
Coverage of the health care meetings makes me shame to say I'm a journalist.
News reports indicates and suggests that town hall meeting attendees are mostly
concerned Americans when in fact a significant number of people at the events are
no more than political mercenaries!
I wouldn't be surprised if both proponents and.opponents both have people
holding signs, hollering and screaming about health care that have been paid by
special interests.
It is not unusual for doctors, lawyers, insurance companies, cable TV compa-
nies, telephone companies and other business associations or special interest groups
to roll out groups before the media that look like community organizations but are
really industry employees.
-People are paid to hold signs, paid to make comments and paid to attend town
hall meetings. How do I know? Even Lucius Gantt has been paid in the past to write
press releases or opinion columns for devilish interest groups.
In politics, it's not enough to be appropriate. It's not enough to .be right on the
issue. Political adversaries must be able to prevail.-They must be able to generate
the necessary votes to kill or pass a bill or governmental proposal.
The main people, in my opinion, against health care reform are insurance com-
panies. They do not want an America where every citizen has health care coverage.
They do not want all citizens to have access to hospitals and doctors. They do not
want everyone to have low cost prescription medication.
Insurance companies can't compete with a public health care option. If
Americans had a choice of purchasing low cost "Medicare-like" coverage or pay-
ing for high cost insurance that denies policy holders coverage every chance they
get, the people would choose the public,-health option.
When you've had a life-threatening illness or sickness like I have had, health
care is very important. The nation's credit status is not the only thing burdened by
high health care costs. Your credit status will be ruined too if you ever need exten-
sive health care.
Love the American health care alternatives or hate theiam but believe this, just
because health care costs more in the United States, it doesn't mean that health care
is best here. We're worried about costs but some of the-poorest third world coun-
tries have free or very low cost health care. Go figure!
It's all about priorities. Health care for all should be paramount! Buy Gantt's

Greene, Photographer for
The Florida Star.

In the midst of a battle
to regain an NFL starting
job, former Jaguars', quar-
terback Byron Leftwich
was back at Jacksonville
Municipal Stadium trying
to impress first year coach
Raheem Morris in Tampa
Bay's 24-23 come from
behind victory.
Morris, who took over
for Jon Gruden at the end
of last season, has kept a
close eye on the QBs in the
Bucs' camp. A lackluster
performance by Luke
McCown. against
Tennessee in the opening
preseason loss set the stage
for Leftwich to emerge
from a pack that includes
the two Josh's, Johnson and
Freeman.
It was Leftwich's first
time back playing since
losing the starting role. to
David Garrard in 2007.
Last season he was in a
Steelers' uniform when the
Super Bowl champs beat


Jacksonville 26-21, but
didn't see any playing time
in that game.
Saturday night didn't
start well. Already trailing
7-0, after Troy
Williamson's 74-yard catch
on the opening play,
Leftwich was saddled with
Sa penalty for a false start
and a loss of one yard on a
running play. His first pass
was incomplete.
Facing third and 16 he
connected over the middle
to Maurice Stoyall for a
first down. Then he found
Michael Clayon for another
19 yards. At the
Jacksonville 45 he faced
third down. But he couldn't
complete a pass to Jerramy
Stevens and the Bucs had to
punt.
On the second series he
started with an 11 -yard pass
to Clayton. Steven's' then
caught a 7-yarder to' the
Jaguars' 41. The drive
stalled at the Jaguars 27.
Mike Nugent, battling Matt
Bryant for field goal duties;
kicked a 46-yard FG
The Bucs got the ball
back on their own 23. But
Leftwich couldn't move
them past midfield and was
done for ,the night..
Leftwich was 6 of 12 for 63
yards.
"We are just trying to
'get started and fine tune all
the little details at this
point. It is important for us
to work on those areas to
make sure we are ready for
week one," Leftwich said.


"This is what we are con-
centrating on now."
McCown came in at the
start of the second quarter.
His first series was three
and out. Next time he had
better field position, begin-
ning on the Jacksonville 20,
thanks to Sammie
Stroughter's 75-yard kick-
off return. His 17-yard TD
pass to Stevens cut the
Jaguars' lead 14-10.
Later he would put the
visitors ahead for good
with a 9-yard rifle shot over
the middle to Stroughter.
McCown was 6 of 9 for 51
yards.
"You can't talk enough
about the young man,"
Morris said of Stroughter.
"He is a seventh round draft
pick out here playing for
his life. We respect him and
he respects this opportuni-
ty"'
The night was about the
Jaguars against the Bucs,
both working to improve
on disappointing seasons.
Garrard was 10 of 16 for
216 yards. Greg Jones
added a Jacksonville TD on
a one-yard run and Josh
Scobee kicked a 29-yard
FG. A late TD pass from
Jacksonville QB Todd
Bouman to Tyler Lorenzen
bought the hosts to within
one, but the two-point con-
version failed.
There was a lot on the
line for individual players
trying to make the roster,
much less competing for a
startin ihob.


By Mike Bonts, Sports Editor
Michael Vick made his long-awaited debut with the Eagles Thursday, playing
several positions in eight plays during a 33-32 win over Jacksonville. David Akers
kicked a 34-yard FG with 19 seconds to play to complete the come from behind vic-
tory.
The Jaguars lost their third preseason game. Torry Holt scored on a one-yard
fumble return and Brian Iwuh rambled 92 yards for another TD on a recovered fum-
ble. Jarett Dillard caught a 13-yard TD from Todd Bouman. Iwah also had seven solo
tackles. Jacksonville had won their third preseason game each of the last three years.
Entering the game on the first series, Vick played QB, wide receiver and ran the
Wildcat formation. On Vick's first play he lined up at the quarterback and complet-
ed a four-yard shovel pass to LeSean McCoy. The 29-year-old former Atlanta super-
star -was 4 for 4 for 19 yards, including a 13-yarder to Hank Baskett. Philadelphia
finished the drive with a FG.
Vick only had one rushing attempt in the Wildcat formation, gaining one yard.
Starting quarterback Donovan McNabb was lined up at wide receiver several times.
Josh Scobee kicked three field goals and the Jaguars scored on a safety.
Jacksonville hosts Washington Thursday night at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in
the final preseason game.
Prior to the game, Vick was in court in to resolve bankruptcy issues. While serv-
ing his nearly two-year prison sentence for federal dogfighting charges, Vick filed
for bankruptcy protection. He owes about $20 million to various creditors, which
includes part of a signing bonus to his former team, the Atlanta Falcons.

Business Leadership
Experience

Fudge Scholars with South Africa flag
and Chaperones

Five female collegiate scholars selected to join mem-
bers of The Executive Leadership Council in a once-
in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with global business
leaders in South Africa have returned home awestruck
and exhilarated. The scholars were recipients of the
2008-09 Ann Fudge Scholarships, named in honor of
the first woman chair of the Council and former chair-
man and CEO of Young & Rubicam Brands.
Fudge, who currently serves on boards of foun-
dations and companies such as General Electric and
Novartis, complimented the women. "I am extremely
proud of the accomplishments of these young women.
Their experiences in South Africa will enable them to,
truly be Citizens of the World, capable of understanding
different cultures and working in our global business
environment."
Prior to their departure, The Coca-Cola
Company hosted a dinner for the students in Atlanta.
The eight-day visit in conjunction with LEAD
(Leadership Education and Development) featured
stops in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and tours of the.
Apartheid Museum and Robbins Island. The scholars
were chaperoned by Council members including Marva,
Smalls, Executive Vice President Global Inclusion
Strategy & Executive Vice President Public Affairs &
Chief of Staff, MTV Networks; Dr. Jane E. Smith,
Executive Director of the Spelman College Center for
Leadership and Civic Engagement and Joy Booker,
President of NextGen Network, the pipeline organiza-
tion of The Executive Leadership Council.
"Traveling to South Africa was a necessity in
order for me to grow and learn, and we gained so much
from this experience," remarked Rachel Niani
Cheeseborough, a Spelman College rising senior. "I will
always be grateful for having the opportunity to share
this experience with phenomenal people."
"A global experience has never been more com-
pelling in shaping a young person's career," said
Westina Matthews Shatteen, Ph.D., Managing Director,


Community Business Development with Bank of
America.'Merrill Lynch. and architect of the Ann Fudge
Scholars program and coordinator of the South African
tour. "That is w\vh we. at The Executive Leadership
Council, believed it was crucial for our Ann Fudge
scholars to receive not only scholarship support but also
the unparalleled experience of traveling to another
country, chaperoned by ELC women and hosted by
ELC member companies."
"The South Africa trip taught me the signifi-
cance of cross-cultural communication," said Denyqua
Rodriguez, a rising senior at Bennett College for
Women. "I now have a greater awareness and appreci-
ation for diversity and inclusion." Another Bennett
College rising senior, Khadijah Dargan, added, "I truly
appreciate this eye opening trip that has caused me to
move rapidly toward truly understanding globalization.
I feel as if I have been given the world, and it is all due
to the empowered women of The Executive Leadership
Council."
The scholars visited senior executives from GE,
Johnson & Johnson, and other global companies in the
region to gain first-hand insight into global business and
professional and- personal leadership development.
Venus Taylor, a 2nd year MBA student at The
University of Chicago said, "As world markets become
increasingly integrated, it is important for us to become
members of the global community if we want to make
any impact. The exposure granted by this trip to South
Africa has opened doors to what I can apply to my
MBA studies as well as to my career."
Chaperone Marva Smalls of MTV Networks
observed, "The trip to South Africa was a great comple-
ment to the academic studies and internships of the
Anne Fudge Scholars. Not only did it add to their per-
sonal and professional development, but they were able
to witness first-hand the innovative work of global com-
panies in connecting their businesses back to the com-
munity and their employees to each other. On a profes-
sional level, I. gained great insight into the various mod-
els used to build a diverse and inclusive workforce
which can also be championed within MTV Networks."
The scholarships awarded each of the women
$5,000 and were presented at The Executive Leadership
Council's 2008 Black Women's Leadership Summit in
New York City last summer. All funds for the scholar-
ships and travel expenses for the scholars were raised
by hundreds of ELC members through support of past
annual women's summits. The students also were rec-
ognized at The Council's 2008 Annual Recognition
Awards black tie gala in New York last October, which
was attended by more than 2,000 leaders in business,
higher education, and public policy.
"This global excursion has exceeded all of my
expectations," said Spelman College Rising Senior
Michelle Maltbia, expressing her appreciation. "With
each new experience I found an opportunity for my own
personal growth and for that 1 am eternally grateful."

P RE P RA P BACK -TO-SCHOOL EDITION


NATIONAL FOUNDATION
CALLS FOR "DATA
REVOLUTION" TO TRACK
PROGRESS, IMPROVE LIVES
OF VULNERABLE KIDS:

FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL
GOVERNMENT ACTION NEEDED

2009 KIDS COUNT DATA BOOK SHOWS
900,000 MORE CHILDREN LIVING IN
POVERTY, CHILDREN OF COLOR
CONTINUE TO FACE BARRIERS TO
SUCCESS

The Annie E. Casey Foundation
today called for improvements to the
nation's ability to design and evaluate
programs aimed at the needs of children
and families living in poverty. Casey, in
releasing its 20th annual KIDS COUNT
Data Book, makes it clear that the basis
for improving the outcomes of this coun-
try's most disadvantaged children and
families lies in identifying where they
are, the conditions that they live in, and
the effectiveness of current programs to
improve outcomes.
The KIDS COUNT Data Book
and the new Data Center
(http://datacenter.kidscount.org)
respond to this need by providing a con-
sistent, reliable source of information
about children's well-being. Data on 10
key measures are now available at the
state, county, and city level, providing
policymakers with the most comprehen-
sive source of information.
"Better futures for children will
not occur simply by combining -better
data, stronger data analysis, and an
increased use of new technology," says
Douglas W. Nelson,'president and CEO.
of the Baltimore-based Casey
Foundation. "But by counting what
counts in the lives of children and fami-
lies, we can better hold ourselves
accountable to our national commitment
to meet the needs and boost the out-
comes for less-fortunate children. It's
time to focus on the evolving needs of
the next generation of millions of chil-
dren whose future well-being is on the'
line."
In this year's Data Book essay,
"Counting What Counts," Casey calls on
federal leaders, state and local decision
makers, and children's advocates to
transform how they use data to improve
the lives of vulnerable children through:
Leadership at the federal level to
develop high-quality data systems:
Key recommendations include fully
funding, properly managing, and suc-
cessfully promoting the 2010 Census;
updating the U.S. poverty measure;
increasing data collection on child and
family well-being; and addressing prob-
lems in the National Vital Statistics
System.
Commitment at the state and local
level to improve performance meas-
urement: Steps that can be taken
include enhancing administrative data-
bases, improving data analysis, promot-
ing data-driven practice improvements,
and expanding the use of new informa-
tion technologies.
Engagement of children's advo-
cates and other concerned leaders:
Awareness and mobilization efforts
include using compelling data to inform
and strengthen advocacy; identifying
critical, measureable benchmarks; and
using neighborhood indicators antd com-
munity mapping to clarify challenges
and identify opportunities for helping
families succeed.
"Access to timely and easily
understood data. can lead to better-
informed policies, more focused pro-
gramming, and more efficient use of tax-
payer dollars," declares Patrick
McCarthy, senior vice president of the
Casey Foundation. "Despite the tempta-
tions' to cut back on government-
financed systems during hard economic
times, ensuring that policy makers and


b


managers have the .information they
need to make critically important deci-
sions can deliver an immense payoff in
reduced waste and improved results for
children.'.'
The 20th annual KIDS COUNT
Data Book indicators show that national
trends in child well-being have improved
slightly since 2000. These national
trends, however, are not on par with the
well-being improvements that were
seen at the end of the 1990s. "KIDS
COUNT has slightly more good news
than bad for children, but there are
some trends going in the wrong direc-
tion," says Laura Beavers, coordinator
of the national KIDS COUNT project.
"The poverty rate for children remains
between 17 and 19 percent thus far this
decade the rate of 18 percent in 2007
means 900,000 more children were liv-
ing in poverty nationally than in 2000, a
number that spurs our call for change."
Nationally, the differences in child
well-being across racial and ethnic lines
vary by indicator. In fact, nationally,
since 2000, gaps in the differences in
child well-being along racial and ethnic
lines have decreased in some areas--
most notably, the high school dropout
rate. However, on the whole, non-
Hispanic white children continue to have
greater opportunities for better out-
comes compared with most other racial
and ethnic groups.
The 2009 KIDS COUNT Data
Book found that:
Compared to the national aver-
age of 18 percent, nearly twice as many
African-American children (35 per-
cent) were living in poverty, but had only
one percent higher (8 percent) than the
national average (7 percent) of teen
high school dropouts;
Nationally, Asian American chil-
dren and families fared better than
national averages on all 10 indicators of
well-being, and better than white chil-
dren on all but three indicators (percent-
age of low-birthweight babies, percent-
age of children living in families where
no parent has full-time, year-round
employment, and percentage of chil-
dren in poverty);
American Indian and Alaskan
Native children were three times (33
percent) more likely than white children
(11 percent) to be living in poverty, and
fared worse than national averages on
all ten KIDS COUNT indicators of child
well-being except percentage of low-
birthweight babies;
The birth rate of Hispanic and
Latino teens (83 per thousand live
births) was nearly double that of the
national average (42 per thousand live
births), but Hispanic and Latino children
fared better than the national. average
on some health indicators, including the
percentage of low-birthweight babies,
the infant, mortality rate, and the child.
death rate.
The 2009 KIDS COUNT Data
Book provides national statistics for five
large racial-and ethnic groups on each,
of the 10 measures of child well-being
used to rank states. To access state-
level data for these racial and ethnic
groups for our 10 key indicators, visit the
KIDS COUNT Data Center/ at
http://datacenter.kidscount.org. Through
the KIDS COUNT Data Center, users

access hundreds of other measures of
child well-being, and view real-time
information on portable devices.

Floridian Civil Rights Trailblazer and FAMU Alum

Honored by the National Bar Association

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -
Florida A&M University. (FAMU)
alum and State of Florida
Senator (D-Tampa) Arthenia
Joyner was inducted into the
National Bar Association's
(NBA) Hall of Fame.
"It's a singular honor to have
been recognized by your peers
for this milestone," said Senator
Joyner. "But there's much work
left to be done. This honor
inspires me to continue the fight
for equality."
Senator Joyner was honored at
the organization's 23rd Annual Hall of Fame luncheon in San Diego,
Calif. She is also the second woman to serve as president of the
NBA.
John Crump, the National Bar's executive director, said
Senator Joyner is being added to the Hall of Fame's ranks "in recog-
nition of her many years of services in the practice of law, contribu-
tions to the African-American community and the significant contribu-
tions that she has made to the cause ofjustice."
About Sen. Joyner
Joyner was elected to the Florida Legislature in 2000 where
she served six years in the Florida House of Representatives and is
currently serving in the Florida Senate. She is a shareholder in the
law firm of Stiles, Taylor & Grace, P.A. where her primary areas of
practice are probate, guardianship and public finance.
Senator Joyner has been a groundbreaker and leader in her
profession. She received her bachelor of science and juris doctor
degrees from FAMU. She was the first African-American female
attorney in Polk and Hillsborough Counties, and she has been in pri-
vate practice for 40 years longer than any other black woman in the
State of Florida.
Senator Joyner is a fighter for civil rights, and has always stood
up for what she believes. Facing segregation and discrimination, she
participated, while in high school, in one of the first civil rights demon-
strations in her hometown of Tampa, Fla. She was active in the effort
to desegregate movie theaters and churches in Tallahassee, Fla. and
was arrested twice while attending FAMU. In 1985, her commitment
was demonstrated again while serving as president of the National
Bar Association as she protested apartheid outside the South African
Embassy in Washington, D.C.
Senator Joyner has received numerous awards. Counted
among her most prestigious awards are appointments by former
President William "Bill" Clinton to the U.S. Delegation to the
Population Conference in Cairo, Egypt, in 1994; the U.S. Delegation
to the United Nations 4th World Conference on Women in Beijing,
China, in 1995; to the Federal Aviation Management Advisory
Council, in 1999; and a Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Stetson
University in 1991.
About the NBA
The NBA, founded in 1925, has been at the forefront of legal
battles waged on behalf of equality, especially on behalf of the
African-American community. The NBA is the nation's oldest and
largest national association of predominately African-American
lawyers and judges. It has 84 affiliate chapters throughout the United
States and affiliations in Canada, the United Kingdom, Africa and the
Caribbean. It represents a professional network of more than 20,000
lawyers, judges, educators and law students.

FOR THIRD YEAR IN A ROW, LOCAL CHILD RECEIVES SEAN
ANDERSON SCHOLARSHIP FOR A FREE ANTI-STUTTERING
DEVICE
ALL THREE WINNERS HAVE BEEN PATIENTS OF WOLFSON
CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

Anfernee McGahee, 13, of Jacksonville is this year's recipient of the
Sean Andersori Scholarship SpeechEasy device in the state of.Florida.
This is the third consecutive year that a child served by Wolfson
Children's Rehabilitation has received the scholarship for Florida.
Anfemee was fitted for his new device on Thursday, June 25, at 2
p.m., at the Wolfson Rehab Clinic within the Baptist Health Center in
Mandarin, 10337 San Jose Blvd., Suite 102. Scholarship provider Andy
Anderson attended. "The SpeechEasy device will allow this young man to
share his many thoughts and ideas that up until this point he has been unable
to express," says Judy Hammer-Knisely, speech-language pathologist and
audiologist at Wolfson Children's Rehab."
Launched in 2004, the Sean Anderson Memorial Scholarship
Program provides free devices and therapy to Florida children who stutter.
The scholarship is named in memory of 10-year-old Sean Anderson of
Ocoee, Florida, who received the SpeechEasy device nine months before
his untimely death in February 2004. With the help of SpeechEasy, Sean
was able to speak fluently for the first time in his life, prompting his par-
ents, Andy Anderson and Martha Lopez-Anderson, to help launch the annu-
al scholarship program in his memory.
The scholarship program selects one Florida child each year to
receive a free SpeechEasy device. The recipient is selected based on eligi-
bility criteria that include financial hardship and potential for life-changing
benefits such as social and academic/career advancement.
For more information on the Sean Anderson Memorial Scholarship
Program, please call (877) 4-FLUENCY (877-435-8362).

WCGL CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF SERVICE
TO JACKSONVILLE


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.
