instilled in me the .belief
that if I worked really
hard, and had faith in God,
nothing would stand in my
way." Such support gave


her the confidence to
ignore advice such as
"adianced classes might
be too hard"' and "l'y
League schools would be
out of reach." At a timne
when mentors were not
plentiful for young black
w~oml~en. Haruris persisted.
Onie of her long-standing
Jacksonv~ille mentors is
prominent Jalcksonvlle k
attorney Steve Pajcic who
will introduce Ms. Harris
at the Fonrum event.

!nate to have Carla Harris

pect became very agitated and wanted to fight the complainant. The suspect began
cursing and yelling at the complainant and said, "I want to kick your butt." The wit-
ness had to restrain the suspect and keep him from attacking the complainant.

Born and raised mn Shelby,
NC, Spikes was the top college pick out of NC post high school and selected Florida
over all other colleges including Alabama, NC State and Virginia Tech. At Florida, he
has ~earned numerous awards including first team All American and SEC honors in
2008.
In fact, he was named one of the SEC players of the week because he had 11 tack-
les, a career-best three sacks and a fumble recovery in Florida's winl at LSU.
Florida struck first with a with a 28-yard field goal in the first quarter. After a
stymied drive in the 2nd quarter, LSU responded with a 18-yard field goal of their own

Late in the 2nd quarter, FL struck back with a Tebow 24-yard strike to. Riley Cooper
to put Florida on top' at the half, 10-3.
The defenses put on a clinic during the 3rd quarter and in the 4~th quarter, the Gators
tcked on another three points with a Caleb Sturgis 32-yard boot for the game final
score of Gators 13, Tigers 3.
It was a game of surprises. Would Tebow start? As the LSU Tigers were ranked last
in total SEC offensive yards, would the potent Florida Gator offense have a blowout
game? Would LSU be able to continue its 32-game winning streak in Saturday night
home games? The answers were yes, no and no.
Suffice it to say, this was the biggest test to date for the Gators to continue their per-
fect season and in spite of a less than perfect game, they are still number 1.
SThe Gators host the University of Arkansas Razoribacks for the UF Homecoming
game on Saturday, October 17, 2009 at 3:30 PM EST that CBS will televise nationally.
The Razorbacks (3-2) are coming of a 44-23 trouncing of Auburn and a 47-13 gouging
of Texas A&M.
With another week to heal, my prediction is that the Gators will winl by 17 points.

TEEN TURNS TRASH INTO WIND POWER


7 gj It was eight years ago when William Kamkwamba, now 22, began to
read physics books in English. This may be seen as an ordinary feat or a
class assignment for most 14 year olds, typically in their freshmen year of
high school, but not for Kamkwamba. He describes his journey in7 his best-
selling memoir, The Boy Who Har~nessed The Wind.
J., William Kamkwamba grew up in Mastala, a village in the third world
.. country of Malawi in southeast Africa, surrounded by poverty and famine.
His family depended on farming but didn't always have enough to eat, such
F ~as eating a meal composed of three mouthfuls of food a day during the
2002 Malawi food shortage and famine. His family, like most in his village,
w'as very poor and they couldn't afford basic school fees for him to contin-'
ue his education. This motivated Kamkwamba, who was determined to get
an education, into sneaking into school and going to the local library to
\ learn.
1 This is where the windmill began. Kamkwamba, amazed with simple
devices since he was a child, poured over physics books, translated them
*1 D and learned. Somewhere in between, he found a diagram for a dynamo, a
iG t machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. He quick-
ly grasped the concept of electromagnetism and after examining the wind-
~fS~h mill on the book's cover, he realized he could build one.
The next challenge for Kamkwamba was finding the right materials to
build a windmill. He had a~ very limited amount of materials to work with and he began to get creative by
designing a windmill made out of a tractor fan, bamboo sticks, a PVC pipe and various bicycle parts. He
began to collect the different parts and build the windmill from them over the next few weeks as by passers
and neighbors watched with curiosity as others, like his Mother, discouraged him by saying he was just
II collecting trash. Kamkwamba continued to motivate himself with the knowledge of knowing there is such
an invention out there and finally finished his windmill. With love for his family, he light up the light bulbs
in his house with the power generated from the windmill. Those who first doubted him quickly realized the
windmill was useful and began to help him out, along with those who initially supported him.
Soon, Kamkwamba began to gather media attention. Reporters began featuring him on the news
~l~d~ ~ ~ Iin 2006 and it wasn't long before he got an invite to speak at the 2007 TED conference. He began the
Moving Windmills foundation with his main goal, to use wind to power well pumps and help others out.
Kamkwamba was the center of the award-winning documentary Moving Windmills: The William
Kamkwamba. His memoir describes the rest of his journey and other hardships he has been through, as
well as his successes.
Today, William Kamkwamba continues to help and inspire others around Malawi, the rest Africa and the
world. He hopes his story can inspire others like him to pursue their dreams and pursue technology from
what he has already started. He is currently focusing on finishing his ~education so he can start a windmill
company and begin providing others, in rural Africa with a reliable energy source.

Life Beyond


By Rose Rennekamp
College and Career Corner

Every child Is unique, with unique talents, passions, and skills. And as each child
grows up, he or she begins thinking about independence and the future.
As a parent, you can help guide your children toward a meaningful career. William
Shakespeare wrote that "all things are ready, if our minds be so.
The path to a career will be different for every student. But the -early route is the
same. Children need to work hard in school up until the day they graduate. Rigorous class-
es will prepare students for college, career, and life.
After high school, there are limitless possibilities. Four-year universities are perfect
for some students (www.actstudent.org/collegelindex). Community colleges are ideal for
others. Certification programs nicely fit the bill for some careers. Apprenticeships are anoth-
er way to explore the world of work and- get paid for learning. Internships are great for
students whether they're in high school or college who want to get a taste for an occu-
pation. Some high schools even offer career academies that provide courses for sljecific
occu patio ns.
The medical field offers up an excellent example of a wide and diverse occupation-
al spectrum. Your child might start in one position and love it. Or he or she may want to con-
tinue moving along the continuum.
For example, certified nursing assistants, or CNAs, work with nurses to provide
patient care. Community colleges offer 6- to 1;2-week CNA certificate programs. In less than
four months, your child could complete training for a lifelong career or use the training as a
springboard for further medical study.
Several years ago, my daughter was in the hospital. I learned that her nursing aide
was also a premed student. He said being a nursing aide was a great way to -make sure he
really wanted to be doctor. In addition, because he worked weekends and was paid well,.
he' was able to pay his own way through college.
Anyone interested in a medical career can study and train to become a paramedic,
registered nurse, physician's assistant, or medical doctor, among other options. Whether
your student becomes a radiological technician (2 years of education) or a radiologist (8+
years of education and training) is a -matter of time and individual skills and preferences.
It's never too early to begin thinking about life after high school. You may have a child
who picks a career at age five and never wavers from that goal. Or, perhaps more likely,
your child may change his or her mind many times.
Fortunately, you can help point your child to resources that explore and examine
careers.
Beginning in 8th grade, your student can take ACT's EXPLORE@ exam. This test
contains a total of 128 questions that assess your child's readiness in English, math, sci-
ence and reading. Because students complete an interest inventory, score reports also pro-
vide valuable information to guide their educational and career plans.
In 10th grade,, students may take the PLAN@ test, a 145-question exam that builds
upon the same topics as .EXPLORE; thie material is slightly' more difficult. PLAN results
show academic areas where your student is strongest and where he or she needs to
improve. 'For sample test questions, .encourage your teenager to visit
\www.actstudent.org/plan/pdf/sample.pdf.
Finally, in 11th or 12th grade, your student can take the ACT@ test. ACT scores,
along with student grades, show your teenager's readiness for college and career. To learn
more about the ACT test, visit www.actstudent.org/index. html.
The ACT Map of College Majors (www.actstudent.org/majorsmap/index) is another
valuable tool. Your student can easily navigate th'e site to help determine which college
majors fit his or her career goals. With 80 primary majors and links to more than 280 other
majors, this site provides an in-depth look at topics of study, available degrees, and relat-
ed occupations and majors. Even if your child doesn't attend college, this site helps narrow
down the occupational focus.
Education is the building block of a successful career. Help your child stay on course
in school. Encourage your child to take challenging classes. And guide your child along the
jourriey. The reward wlill be a young adult who is ready for all that life offers.

~BETTrY ASQUE DAVIS EARNS PRESTIGIOUS DESIG-
NATION TO HELP HOMEOWNERS IN DANGER OF
FORECLOSURE

Betty Asque Davis of W~atson Realty Corp has earned the
prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) desig-
nation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure
avoidance and short sales. This is invaluable expertise to offer at
a time when the area is ravaged by "distressed" homes in the
foreclosure process.

Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller to repay the mortgage
at the price that the home sells for, even though it is lower than
what is owed on the property. With plummeting property val-
ues, this can save many people from foreclosure and even bank-
ruptcy. More and more lenders are willing to consider short
sales because they are much less costly than foreclosures.

In the First Coast area, a growing number of homes are in dan-
ger of foreclosing. It is happening in all price ranges. Local
experts say that even high-priced homes are not immune.

"This CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with sell-
ers' and lenders on complicated short sales," said Davis. "It is so
rewarding to be able to help sellers save their homes from fore-
closure."

Alex Charfen, founder of the Distressed Property Institute in
Boca Raton, Fla., said that Realtors@ such` as Betty Asque Davis
with the CDPE designation have valuable training inl short sales
that can offer the homeowner much better alternatives to fore-
closure, which virtually destroys the credit rating. These experts-
also may better understand market conditions and can help sell-
ers through the emotional experience, he said.

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. "O~ur 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 "Wonde~rboy"
Johnson, and James Fortune & FIYA. Vendor space is available
inside the church's atrium.
