THE FLORIDA AND GEORGIA STAR
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
WHY ARE AMERICANS CHEERING WHEN THEY LOSE!!!
ObamOlympics, ObamaCare, ObamNomics., ObamAcron!! These are the
labels of the nations citizens of today, who seem to want Obama to fail. Why?
Because he is different and they did not vote for him.
Today some headlines read, "Obama Looses the Olympic Bid!" Obama did
not loose the Olympics, Chicago and America did. (Dave Zirini, Victory: Chicago
Losq~s the Olympics, Nation Magazine, O~ctober 2, 21009) After getting the vote that
American loss their bid to host the Olympics in 2016, TV showed Conservative clap-
ping, cheering and chanting~ Obama lost! (Amnanda Terkel, Right-Wingers Root
Against U.S., Then Celebrate Olympic Bid Failure, Alternet.org, October 2, 2009)
America loss. Is this the sign of a loyal American citizen to cheer America loosing
something? Or was this a cheer that Obama loss an issue for which he made a spe-
cial effort to secure? The Right Wing Conservative group put it like this, "THE EGO
HAS LANDED WORLD REJECTS OBAMA: CHICAGO OUT IN FIRST
ROUND!" (The DrudgeReport, October 3, 2009)
This seem to be a common theme of those who for reasons of their own do
not want Obama- as president and would go so for as to see the whole nation fail to
get back at what they see as a slap in the face of "their America" (Charles Dharapak,
Charles Dharapak/AP, AP, October 3, 2009) Some reports say, "2 Barack Obama
may not be feeling it, but he is the luckiest man alive right now. Yes, President
Obama traveled all the way to Copenhagen and didn't even get a lousy t-shirt, .
but he is damn fortunate it went down like it did. .. Every time an Olympic proj-
ect came in late and over budget,~ every time a scandal hit the tabloids, every time a
crime was.captured on a cell phone camera it would have been "Obama's Olympic
Folly." Imagine Rush Limbaugh or Glen Beck oozing over to Chicago with every
blip in the process. It would have all been at best a distraction and at worst, and end-
less spigot of champagne `for his enemies. .. ." (Dave Zirin, Nation Magazine,
Barack Obama may not be feeling it, but he is the luckiest man alive right now,
October 2, 2009)
Many conservatives are sarcastically saying, Barack Obama's presidency in
recent weeks: that~ he is loved by many, but feared by none; that he is full of lofty
vision, but is actually achieving nothing within his grandiloquence.
The great mouth, Rush Limbaugh of the "Conservative Republicans in Exile"
is bouncing in his chair and yelling that America can't for ObamCare to be defeated
as the next indication that Obama is not president timber!
Americans are cheering when they are losers. Or are they cheering because
they are saying that'Obama Lost??

ale~raged allmost 47 Janb per attempt ~\lu manl, of
them seeming to hang forever before coming
down. Although the Bison had what would have
been field position advantage, Thayer negated it
with his booming punts.
SHoward's punter, Patrick Wolff was equally
effective. Although he lacked the overall distance
of Thayer's punts, he was especially effective plac-
ing the ball inside the 10-yard line 5 times, includ-
ing two that landed inside the twio-yard line.
The secorid half hinged on the play of the
defenses and the individual talent of Carter, who
made three big catches during the game's only TD
drive. The Bison went 70 yards in eiy)1t plays with
Carter capping off the drive with a 20-yard strike
from Floyd Haigler (18 of 44, 193 yards).
From there, Howard (2-2) appeared to take
control and twice had good field position but both
times they were thwarted, first by a missed field
goal and then by an interception as the Rams'
defense once again proved to be the strength of the
Winston-Salem State (0-5) finally got on the
board when they manufactured a gritty, 10-play
drive. The Howard defense held, however, and
forced a 43-yard field by Thayer with 8:45 remain-
ing in the fourth quarter.
SHoward held on downs on the Rams' next
possession and forced a punt but Jeff Miller fum-
bled and gave the Rams' excellent field position at
the Howard 14-ard line with a little over three
minutes left .
But Winston-Salem State, which has lost 5
straight games in a season for the fist time since
1975, had a bad snap on first down that lost 14
yards. The Rams never recovered as the Bison led
by Will Croner's sack and pressure on the quarte- ~
back, held on downs and took over to run oult the

ment prior to discharge to the St. Johns River. The project consists of the

tract includes all construction and materials required to complete the
desired modifications. The District anticipates purchasing materials of

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 "Jaicksonville'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 Comrtonwealth Avenue. Gospel
recording artists~ scheduled to appear will.be the legendary Canton
Spirituals, Vickie Yohe, The Nevels Sisters, Keith "Wonderboy"
