Ckt"Gxce"Nkhgvgco"Qrgpu"Pgy"Dcug"kp"Dtwpuykem Air Evac Lifeteam, an independently-owned air ambulance provider, has expanded its service area in Georgia with the opening of a base in Brunswick. Air Evac Lifeteam crews provide on-the-scene medical care and rapid medical transport, as well as transfers between medical facilities. The new base is located near the Southeast Georgia Health System campus in Brunswick, and is one of 94 bases in Air Evac Lifeteams network of air ambulance services. The Brunswick base is the fifth in Georgia and will provide employment for 12 to 15 individuals and serve communities within a 70-mile radius of Brunswick. For employment opportunities, call 1-800-793-0010 or visit www.lifeteam.net. A report released in September by the Violence Policy Center, Washington, D. C. said that Black women murdered by men are most often killed with a gun, and in most cases they know the man. October is Domestic Violence Month and the study was released to allow women to observe more their relationships. According to the study, in 2008, 542 black females were murdered by males in single/victim homicides. Black women are murdered at a rate more than two and a half times higher than white women: 2.74 per 100,000 versus 1.02 per 100,000. Ten percent of black female victims were less than 18 years old. Firearms, especially handguns, were the most common weapons used. For the 486 homicides where the weapon could be identified, 58 percent of black female victims (283) were shot and killed by a gun. Pastor Bishop Eddie Long is really getting it thrown at him as one of the young men who accused him of sexual misconduct has been speaking out to all who will listen about the many sexual encounters between he and the bishop. In fact, he said, some even occurred on the church grounds, before and after morning services. The four men who accused Long of sexual misbehavior, said that Long traded sex acts for cars, clothes and mother material possessions. The men say that after evaluating the encounters, they feel that Long is a pedophilia. No one has heard any comments from Bishop Longs present wife, but his ex-wife charged him with abuse in their divorce papers. She claims that when she was 7 1/2 months pregnant, Long beat her with his fists. She said he had a vicious and violent temper,Ž according to the divorce papers pulled by the Atlanta-Journal. Bishop Long has not made any moves to resign as pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. Jacksonvilles City Council voted Tuesday in a 13 to 5 vote, to approve the citys budget that is nearly $1 billion. The budget includes a 9-percent property tax increase on properties in the city, which has gone down in value. There were several calls to The Florida Star from those who were angry with the African American city councilmen who voted for the increase. They said they were proud of Glorious Johnson and Denise Lee for not voting for the increase but they said, Warren Jones, Dr. Gaffney and Reggie Brown all represent some of the lowest income residents with the highest rate of unemployment. How can they do this and now, with the JEA going up, how will the residents make it? They said the citizens should get rid of 13 members of the council. JSO is still looking for answers regarding the shooting death of Horace James, Jr., 14, killed Saturday night outside a teen club on University Boulevard. Two others were wounded at the time. It has been learned that there was an argument but it is not clear if Horace was a part of the disagreement. Raphael Thompson, 19, and Bryant Smith, 20, were arrested Tuesday on charges of accessory after the fact but neither had been charged with murder at the time of this writing. Funeral services for Horace is scheduled for Saturday at the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church on Winton Drive. The viewing is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at the C. L. Page Funeral Home on Moncrief Road. Horaces mother calls him her Valentine baby, and is having difficulty with the loss. yyy0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqo Nqqmkpi"hqt"ewuvqogtu"vq"rcvtqpk|g"{qwt dwukpguu"qt"wvknk|g"{qwt"ugtxkeguA"Kh"{qw cpuygtgf"[GU."vjgp"{qw"pggf"vq"rnceg"cp"cf kp"Vjg"Hnqtkfc"qt"Igqtikc"Uvct#""ECNN ;261988/::56"vq"rnceg"{qwt"cf"VQFC[## Check, Money Order, Or Credit Cards Accepted PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFC‘U"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT K P U K F G Editorial....................A-2 Church....................A-3 Lifestyle..................A-4 State-National..................A-5 Entertainment..............A-6 Prep Rap..................B-5 & 6 Local.....................B-1 Columns...................B-2 Sports....................B-4 Did You Hear?.............B-3 Classified & Business...

The landmark settlement that would right decades of discrimination against Black farmers by the U.S. Department of Agriculture had been a rare point of bipartisan agreement. After negotiations between leading Democrats and Republicans, it was set to be passed by unanimous consent, but Senator Coburn objected saying the settlement funds were not offset by budget cuts elsewhere. Jacksonville Jaguars fans who are low in funds and cannot purchase tickets as was the case last year, so far has not had that problem this year. It was originally thought that this Sundays game against the Indianapolis Colts, would not been seen on local television. However, the blackout has been lifted as enough tickets were sold. Congratulations fans!

Its hard to believe that, almost two years ago, pundits were heralding Barack Obamas election as the start of Americas post-racial era. So far, thats not happening. Besides sparking overt racism at Tea Party rallies, the election of the nations first black president also seems to have spawned a stealthy, new form of racism: The kind that counts on people to be so predisposed to stereotypes about anyone who isnt like them until the truth no longer matters. The latest, most glaring example of this new racism can be found in Forbes. The business magazine recently allowed Dinesh DSouza, a conservative ideologue, to pen a smear piece on Obama that is so loaded with lies and half-truths that it virtually invites readers to fill in the blanks with whatever fears they may have about him. Perhaps the most glaring lie in the piece, titled How Obama Thinks,Ž is that the president was heavily influenced by his Kenyan father, Barack Obama Sr. DSouza seizes on the opportunity to otherize the president by attempting to smear him with his fathers shortcomings: That the senior Obama was a regular drunk driver who was involved in accidents and that he was an anti-colonialist. But the one failing of Obamas father that DSouza doesnt elaborate on is this one: He abandoned Obamas mother when he was two. The president only saw his father one more time … when he was 10. Any reasonable person would guess that its highly unlikely that a 10-year-old would leave one meeting with a father he hadnt seen for eight years as a rabid anti-colonialist, much less an alcoholic. And anyone who has read Obamas book, "Dreams From My Father," would know that its heavier on criticism about the elder Obama than adulation. Then theres the accusation about Obamas father being an anticolonialist. To that I say ... so what? Anyone who has read "King Leopolds Ghost" knows that colonialism left much of Africa plundered and powerless … and anyone who knows anything about colonialism at all knows that it typically works out better for the colonizers than those who have to accommodate them. Ask any Native American about that. There are other problems in the article, problems too numerous to name here. DSouzas piece has been rightly ripped by The Washington Post and the Columbia Journalism Review. That seems to be the way of things these days. And it speaks volumes as to how far we havent come when it comes to race. When an otherwise respected publication such as Forbes allows an otherwise respected author like DSouza to pile so many innuendoes and half-truths into a cover story, it says either one or two things. It says that this magazine believes a black president doesnt merit the same respect as others when it comes to presenting the truth, or that the public is more inclined to succumb to fears and stereotypes about Obama … so much so that when it comes to him, they dont have to let the truth get in the way of telling a story. Its the kind of stuff that continues to fuel ridiculousness about Obama; ridiculousness about him being a Muslim … as if being a Muslim is like being a felon … and that he was born outside of the United States. Right-wingers like former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who has staked his political revival on Obamas political demise, praised the Forbes article. Its the new racism. Its not the kind that is expressed through signs and epithets. Thats old racism. Its the kind committed by stirring up white peoples deepest fears, fears like Obama being the son of a hostile, drunken African who hated capitalism, to marginalize him. Until .. that stops, America wont ever move into a post-racial era, but will remain perilously stuck in a place in which no black person is owed any honesty or respect. Not even if that black person happens to be the president. PAGE A-2THE STAR OCTOBER 2, 2010 Founded In April 1951 By Eric O.

Mitchell and Consultant Mrs. Deloris Middlebrooks Mitchell. And it was indeed a celebration beyond all measure! Reverend Dr. Robert Lenton Mitchell as a Christian, Student, Musician, Educator, Administrator, College President, Preacher, Presiding Elder, Church and Community Advocate, Husband, and Father always with his lovely wife Mrs. Deloris Mitchell, a devoted Wife, loving Mother, supportive Friend, Educator and diligent Servant of the Lord have committed themselves to service in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the First Coast and the Florida community for over five decades. Through the years Presiding Elder, a Jacksonville, FL native, graduated from Florida A. & M. University with both the Bachelor and Master Degrees. In 1970, Dr. Mitchell became one of the first two African Americans to receive Doctoral degrees from Florida State University and the first to earn a Ph.D. in Educational Administration. His love of music and vocal skills garnered him membership in the FAMU College Quartet joining Robert Anders, Reverend Eugene White and the late Dr. Benjamin Groomes. This same quartet volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army and with the intervention of the late Dr. George Gore the president of FAMU; they were able to remain together during their Army years. They performed both nationally and internationally before their discharge and return to FAMU to complete the ir studies, thus keeping their promise to Dr. Gore, Return to FAMU and complete your studies when you have finished their Army tour of duty.Ž Dr. Mitchell would later organize and direct the Duv al County Teachers Ensemble that was featured on the Sunday Morning Ken Knight Television Show.

PAGE A-8 THE STAR OCTOBER 02, 2010ENTERTAINMENT Hollywood can present some pretty rough waters to sail especially if you are a teen actress. Having the proper parental and professional agent/management team guidance is a major key but the main ingredient boils down to the individual. Do they really want it bad enough to sacrifice, train and make it happen? In the case of sweet 16 year old actress Taylor Spreitler; the answer is a resounding yes to all of the above. The Hattiesburg, Mississippi native got an early start in sho-biz at age six when she was entered into a State child beauty pageant and won. Spreitler advanced to the national pageant in Pennsylvania and won that as well. A couple of New York agents who had been serving as judges approached her parents. Soon afterwards, Spreitler was commuting with her mom to New York to do child modeling work. Her ads included Saks 5th Avenue, Macys Avon, McCalls etc., and made the cover of Child Magazine. Of course, commercials followed and eventually Television where Spreitler became one of the youngest actresses on day time TV on the NBCTV soap Days of Our Lives,Ž playing Mia.Ž Spreitler has a role on the new ABC Family Network sitcom Melissa and Joey,Ž starring Joan Hart as Melissa and Joey Lawrence as Joey. Spreitler plays Melissas niece Lennox.Ž The show airs on Tuesday nights. What was Spritlers first impression of her character when she first read the script? Spreitler responds, Honestly, when I read it, she was so different it just made me put myself into it.Ž Because Taylor has daytime and now sitcom experience, was their a difference in the two for her? She reflects, There definitely was. Soap operas and sitcoms are completely different. On the soaps sometimes I was at work for only two hours. Id show up and it was a very, very fast pace. You dont really have a lot of time to get settled, figure things out and it takes a little bit longer to figure out your character. On a sitcom, youre there five days a week and you are only filming one episode whereas on the soaps we were filming seven episodes in five days. So you have a lot more time for rehearsing and to figure out the little things and then we have a live audience on Friday so it is completely different.Ž Speaking of a live audience, what was Spreitlers reaction the very first time that she had to film in front of one? She flashes the sweetest smile, I had never done theatre or anything in front of an audience so it was really scary the first time. But you know, after you get your script, its just part of the process. Its fine having an audience there to cheer you on and give you that adrenalin rush, sitting there laughing at things. For as long as it takes, the scenes are not as funny anymore but they may start laughing at it and that brings it back to life. So I definitely love taping in front of a live audience.Ž Spreitler definitely has the looks, sex appeal, personality and talent to go as far as opportunities will allow her. Does she have a game plan to stay grounded and deal with or even avoid the pitfall of drugs, alcohol, excessive partying, peer pressure and the socalled Hollywood lifestyle (whatever that is)? She shrugs that one off saying, My parents have prepared me for life. If it (Hollywood) doesnt work out, it doesnt work out. I dont have any desire to be like that. I just want to work and dont really care about the Hollywood stuff at all.Ž By the time this interview is in print, Spreitler will be celebrating her 17th birthday on October 23rd.

With appreciation, Marsha Dean Phelts, Author Its Time To Lose!Rinettas Storyƒƒ.. I have had issues with my weight since I was a child, but loved and participated in sports so was able to maintain my weight until after I had my son. I know now that I am an emotional eater meaning I overeat when I am really happy, stressed or unhappy. I got inspired to start working out again after my family reunion in 2008 where I noticed I was one of the youngest but one of the unhealthiest. I also got more inspired last year after my father had heart surgery, which I know was a wakeup call for me about the true effects of heart disease. I have so far lost 50 pounds. Many have been asking how you did it? I dont have a special pill, diet, drink, or exercise. I have been a member of my neighborhood YMCA-West Orem for 2 years. It provides a great foundation for support for me and my son for exercise and family activities. I work out 4-5 times per week at least an hour on those days. I do portion control with my meals with limiting sugar intake because thats my weakness! I first give credit to God for keeping me focused on my health, my son (my biggest cheerleader/fan), and lastly but not least, great friends and family for support. You cannot think that losing weight can be done alone-you must be committed to yourself and have a strong support system. RF Rinetta, met and interviewed Edward elson in Jacksonville, Florida. He is 70 yrs old and is known as one of the most fit in the worldŽ. This goes to show that if one is dedicated and determined then one can reach ones goal. A few tips that Mr. elson gives is eat in moderation and exercise. There is no magic pill or a specific diet.

By: Andi K. Gratitude When I woke up this morning, the first thing I did was to thank my Creator for giving me life and breath. I then went into my kitchen and made myself some fresh blended watermelon juice, and had some quiet time. This is my morning regimen of self-care. You see, the first step to ANY sort of change is to have GRATITUDE for the exact moment that we stand in now. Although you are hurting, and filled with doubt and pain about your past, you can rest in the comfort of now knowing that you are still alive and filled with purpose. The next step, is to engage in rituals of self care. What is your self-care ritual? How do you feel when you take care of yourself? And what about when you don't? Your challenge today, is to spend 15 minutes worth of quiet time reflecting (and journaling) on what you are grateful for. What gratitude do you have toward yourself? And your loved ones? What about those who have hurt/harmed you? How can these things lend to your progress in the future? Practical Rituals : Download/Listen to the song: What I Cannot Change by LeAnn Rimes Read the poem: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou Say the following Affirmation: "I Am Supported by Life" Eat one piece of fresh fruit or a vegetable; taking care of our outer selves aids in better caring for our inner selves.

Mabrie, MBA Plus One Without You The longer you date an individual, the more you will want to involve him or her in your life. It is natural for increased social interaction to exist due to the fact that you are enjoying him or her more and do not want the moments to stop just because others are around. Possibly, before this increase you may have perceived your friends and family to be an outlet and metaphoric place of refuge to get breathing time and space. You eventually discovered that this breathing time would be better spent with this special person you have been dating for whatever period of time. Your friends and family were always curious and waiting for the opportunity to be involved in your life apart from them, so this transition works in their favor as well. With your significant other being an extension of you, the hopeful outcome of increased interaction is that your circle friends and family will accept and enjoy him or her. Once the connection is made, and if it is a positive one, your significant other will form a rapport separate from your involvement. This is not done with malicious intent and it makes interactions much more personal and comfortable when two individuals do not feel that a third party is the determining cohesion to their existing relationship. The effect of a triangle-rapport is much like the shape of a triangle. The similarity exists in that one person is at one point (on the top) and the other two individuals are on the same plane (at the bottom) with the connection of all involved coming from the top point. In turn the person on top is preventing a three-sided equality of the relationship. If you are uncomfortable with your partner interacting with your family and friends then you should make him or her aware of your uneasiness and that you need time for comfort to exist, but you should not try to prevent and stop their interaction. Your partner is not a threat to your relationships with others and you must always allow natural progressions to exist as long as respect to you exists from both parties. It could be your request that you be kept up to date as the rapports are being made between your partner and your friends and family. In the long run, the more comfortable and familiar your partner feels in reference to the people you are with when apart from him or her, the stronger the relationship. So, put your control tendencies and selfish thoughts to the side and appreciate the bigger picture that is being drawn. It is possible to be vocal and observant at the same time but avoid vocal accusations based on your own insecurities. Surrounding yourself with individuals who have your best interest will help alleviate minute concerns and awkward feelings. Remember : Encourage rapports to form. Do not prohibit for selfish reasons.Contact Justin at justinmabrie@aol.com or Justin L.Mabrie, 5000 Almeda Road, Houston, TX 77074 for insights and concerns. Ulysses W.

Jaguars were awarded quarterback Trent Edwards off waivers from the Buffalo Bills. Edwards, 6-4, 231, has started 32 of 34 games since being selected in the third round of the 2007 draft by the Bills. His career totals include 535 of 878 passing for 5,739 yards with 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions for a 76.8 passer rating. He has six career games with a 100-plus passer rating. He opened the 2010 season as the Bills starter and was 29 of 52 passing for 241 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the first two games before he was waived on Sept. 27. In 2009, Edwards started seven of eight games and completed 110 of 183 passes (60.1 pct.) for 1,169 yards. In 2008, Edwards ranked sixth in the NFL and fifth in the AFC with a 65.5 completion percentage and was third in the NFL with a 106.3 fourth quarter passer rating. He became the sixth second-year quarterback since 1984 to lead his team to a 4-0 start. He started nine games as a rookie in 2007, the most of any NFL rookie and was the first Bills rookie quarterback to record five wins since 1973. Edwards set a franchise rookie record with 120 consecutive passes without an interception and had four touchdown passes on Dec. 9 vs. Miami. The 26-year old ranked seventh in Stanford history with 5,429 passing yards and 36 touchdowns in his college career. Linebacker Alvin Bowen was waived to make room for Edwards on the roster. The Jaguars also signed veteran linebacker Eric Alexander and added second-year quarterback Keith Null to the practice squad. Alexander, 6-2, 240, has spent the past six seasons with the New England Patriots where he played in 45 games. Alexander has 40 career special teams tackles including 14 in two different seasons. He has played in six postseason games and made his only career start at linebacker in the AFC Championship game against Indianapolis on Jan. 21, 2007 and led the team with 10 tackles including one sack. A native of Tyler, Texas, Alexander played in 14 games for the Patriots in 2009 and ranked third on the team with 14 special teams tackles. He spent the 2010 preseason with the club before he was waived on final cuts. He was originally signed as an undrafted rookie by the Patriots in 2004 and spent the majority of his rookie season on the clubs practice squad. Alexander, who will wear number 53, was a fouryear letterman at Louisiana State where he began his career as a safety before moving to linebacker as a sophomore. He lettered in four sports … football, basketball, baseball and track … at Stephen F. Austin High School in Port Arthur, Texas. Null, 6-4, 220, was a sixth-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2009 and played in five games for the Rams as a rookie including four starts. He completed 61.3 percent of his passes (73 of 119) for 566 yards with three touchdowns and nine interceptions. He spent the 2010 preseason with the Rams before he was waived during final cuts. A native of Lampasas, Texas, Null played collegiate football at West Texas A & M where he threw for more than 9,000 yards in two seasons. With a 1-2 record, the Jaguars open AFC South play as they host the Indianapolis Colts at This is the latest the Jaguars have ever started division play. The Jaguars are looking to snap a two-game losing streak after beating Denver, 24-17, on Kickoff Weekend. The Jaguars have dropped back-to-back games to 2009 playoff teams in San Diego and Philadelphia. The Jaguars struggled offensively against the Eagles, compiling 184 total yards, and Michael Vick threw for three touchdowns and ran for another. The first two regular season games at EverBank Field have been played in hot and muggy conditions. Temperature at kickoff for the season-opener against the Broncos was 90 degrees, the warmest in franchise history, and it was 89 degrees to start last Sundays game against the Eagles despite the 4:05 start. QB David Garrard is looking to regain his form after struggling the last two weeks. Garrard opened the season with three touchdown passes and a career-high 138.9 passer rating against the Broncos. RB Maurice Jones-Drew is averaging 72.3 rushing yards in the first three games and is looking for his first touchdown of the season. He has scored 10 touchdowns against the Colts in the previous eight meetings. The Jaguars have recorded seven sacks led by DT Terrance Knighton (2.0), DE Aaron Kampman (1.5) and DT Tyson Alualu (1.5). By: Mike Bonts Writer Laurence Green Photographer For the third consecutive year, Florida A&M University (FAMU) is ranked No. 1 among historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in selling licensed merchandise. According to the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), sales increased by 25 percent from the 2008-2009 fiscal year gross royalties of $79,007 to $98,863.82 in 2009-2010. The FAMU licensing program has generated approximately $2.6 million in retail sells for this fiscal year. We are ecstatic to know that FAMU remains at the top of the list in selling licensed merchandise,Ž said Sabrina Thompson, coordinator of licensing at FAMU. Our goal is to continue to increase sales in the upcoming years.Ž Currently, FAMU has 127 licensees. Royalties from the licensing program funds FAMU athletic scholarships. Previously, FAMU received 7.5 percent of the purchase price. As of July 1, FAMU now receives 10 percent of all sales. This increase will assist the University in continuing to provide excellence with caring,Ž said Thompson. Since August 2008, FAMU, CLC and local law enforcement officials have patrolled the Tallahassee marketplace in search of counterfeiters selling knockoffŽ merchandise. All counterfeit merchandise is subject to seizure. The FAMU licensing program has been a great story in our industry for the last few years,Ž said Brian White, CLCs vice president of University Services. This year, however, the University and its supporters set the bar even higher. It is not uncommon to see large year-overyear sales increases among the country's licensing programs, but this kind of record growth over three consecutive years is very impressive and comes as a result of the Universitys strong commitment to protecting and marketing its brand.Ž The CLC is the oldest and largest collegiate licensing agency in the U.S. and represents nearly 200 colleges, universities, bowl games, athletic conferences, the Heisman Trophy and the NCAA. SPORTS SPORTS PAGE B-4 THE STAR October 02, 2010 S S P P O O R R T T S S PAGE B4 C M Y K Jaguars Awarded QB Trent Edwards Off Waivers FAMU Ranks #1 in Sales Among HBCUs Florida Gators Declaw Kentucky Wildcats 48-14 The 9th ranked University of Florida Gators (3-0, 1-0 SEC) hosted the University of Kentucky Wildcats (3-0; 0-0) on Saturday September 25, 2010 at 7:00 PM in Gainesville, FL with the Gators rumbling to a victory. The Gators won the opening coin toss and elected to receive the ball first in the second half of the game. The Wildcats received the kickoff and after the drive stalled, punted the ball to the Gators. Uncharacteristic of the Gators this season, the offense scored a touchdown with 11:09 showing on the game clock. It was a Trey Burton 11-yard run and with the extra point good, the Gators led 7-0. Late in the quarter, Burton scored again on a 11-yard pass from Gator quarterback John Brantley and with the extra point good, the Gators led at the end of the 1st quarter; 14-0. In the 2nd quarter, the Gators added another defensive touchdown with Jeremy Brown intercepting a Wildcat pass and retuning it 52-yards. The Wildcats finally got on the scoreboard with an 11-yard touchdown strike from Randall Cobb to Chris Matthews with 3:22 left to play in the first half. The half time score was: Gators 21, Wildcats 7. The Gators continued scoring in the 3rd quarter with a Burton 10-yard run and had the extra point blocked. Kentucky fired back with 27-yard touchdown strike to Matthews and in the middle of the quarter, the score was Gators 27, Kentucky 14. At this point in the game, victory was not certain for the Gators; however, with 1:20 left to play in the 3rd quarter, another touchdown by Trey Burton put the Gators up 34 to the Wildcats 14 points to close out the quarter. The Gators Troy Burton added two more touchdowns on runs of 3-yards and 7-yards in the 4th quarter to pile on additional points for the game final: Gator 48; Wildcats 14. The only touchdowns for both teams were scored by players wearing the number 8 (Burton and Matthews) on their jerseys. This was the 24 win in a row for the Gators over the Wildcats and the six touchdowns by Burton in a single game eclipsed the mark set by Tim Tebow, the 2007 Heisman winner, against South Carolina. He's (Tebow) the best football player to ever play college football," said Burton. "It's an honor to be in the same sentence as him." The 7th ranked Florida Gators (4-0; 2-0) will travel to Tuscaloosa Alabama for a rematch of the 2009 SEC Championship game versus the number 1 ranked Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0 SEC) at 8:00 PM EST which will air on CBS. The Tide played a tough number 10 ranked Arkansas Razorback team this past Saturday and had to score 10 unanswered fourth quarter points in the last 6:00 minutes of the game to come out with a win.

PAGE B-5 OCTOBER 2, 2010 PREP RAP PREP RAP Savannah State University students take on Washington, D.C. By Brittney Anderson Going to Washington, D.C., for the first time must have been the greatest experience I have had throughout my collegiate years thus far. I have always heard D.C. is the hot spot for networking with the "Big Boys." When I woke up the first day I made sure my attire was on point I wanted to make sure that I was dressed for success. Nothing can describe the excitement I felt when I walked into the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. All I can think about is how Tiger's Roar has and is going to stand out. I wanted to interview people who young people like us don't often get close to. The one event that stood out the most and set the pace for the entire trip was the "BET: Live with Ed Gordon" summit. We were all enjoying the summit, but it was at the end that our hustle began. Deborah Lee, the CEO of BET, came up on the podium to congratulate the show and give her speech. We were setting up equipment and getting ready to spread out and get interviews, quotes and pictures. It was a madhouse getting through all the people who wanted to take photos and share conversations with the stars. We put our game faces on, and soon no one could tell we weren't 20-year veterans. We were able to interview Lee, Gordon and Roland Martin, and we received a quote from Wendy Robinson, aka "Tasha Mack." I remember Eugene Brannon, our videographer, saying, "We did really good. If this is only the first day for us, I can only imagine how the rest of the trip will be." After that event, we were unstoppable. We also got interviews with Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, congresswoman Maxine Waters and plenty more. All of us were able to network with CEOs and vice presidents of major companies, and all of us received job and intern opportunities. This year, Savannah State sent the ultimate group of students to take this trip. All of our talents and our drive for success mixed together made this trip worthy and unforgettable. There is no I in Team or Hard WorkBy Kolya Barnes, SSU Student The first picture that I took on the way to Washington D.C. was when we first stopped for gas somewhere deep in South Carolina. It was a picture of a couple of the Tiger Eye News and Tigers Roar staff. A team is what we came as and I never knew how important the message was that these first few photographs conveyed. The Savannah State University Tiger Eye News/Tigers Roar staff was the only college there that covered the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference as press. We had to work as a team and through my lens the story can be told. One of the most memorable experiences that I would say we encountered as a group was the BET panel that featured Ed Gordon and he presented a promo of his new show and also modeled the panel in the style of his program. When the panel ended the CEO of BET Debra Lee spoke the crowd and soon after her part words she stepped off the podium and engaged the crowd. Quickly we started to descend into the crowd to coral and pull interviews with the likes of Debra Lee, Ed Gordon, and Roland Martin. Eugene Brannon our videographer and reporter quickly made his way to Ed Gordon to secure his interview while reporter Ava Pittman made the mad dash to get a few words from Debra Lee. All the while Danehsia Ferguson our entertainment reporter kept Roland Martin at bay with her witty personality and Brittney Anderson whipped out into the hall to get a quote from Wendy Robinson. This was team work at its finest. The member of our staff that was missing from this scene was Brittney Anderson who was upstairs uploading content the Tigers Roar website. When I look at the photographs it makes me think of the theme of the CBC, which was Celebrating the Vision Continuing the journey and Advancing the Mission. The continuing journey and the advancing mission is education. I thought of the words that Secretary of Education, Arny Duncan, said In America now you have to compete at a higher level. SSU has given me as well as my staff the opportunity and the tools needed to compete at these higher levels. You can see this through the products of our hard work. As we winded down from our D.C. adventure I stopped to look at the pictures form the Phoenix Awards Dinner where President Barack Obama and the first Lady attended. I thought of all the things I have learned and the many situations I have endured and realized that hard work really does pay off and this just the beginning of a journey not just for me but for all of us. Savannah State students Brittney Anderson, Ava Pittman, Whitney Hunter, Daneshia Ferguson, adviser Sonya Howard. They were among the SSU Tiger Eye News/Tigers Roar staff at the recent Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. Jacksonville Ranks in Top 5 Best Cities for School Reform Jacksonville, FL According to a recent study released by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, Jacksonville is the 5th best city in the country for school reform based on a variety of indicators. This study proves how hard the School Board and our partners have been working to improve the rigor and academic success of all of our students, said Duval County Public Schools Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals. The district continues to be open to new ideas and reform that will allow us to continue to provide a quality education for our students in preparation for post-secondary education or the world of work. In the study, the authors examined six domains that are crucial to a reformfriendly climate: 1) access to a steady flow of talented individuals; 2) a pipeline of readily accessible funding from public and private sources; 3) a thriving charterschool market; 4) attention to qualitycontrol metrics that guide and regulate entrepreneurial ventures; 5) openness to nontraditional providers and reforms at the district level; and 6) similar openness at the municipal level. acksonville ranked number one in the area of quality control, noting our rigorous accountability systems and comprehensive data systems. Duval County is one of only six districts in the state that uses a pay for performance program for teachers and school administrators, using individual student data to show the academic movement of students. Last year, the district implemented On Course, an Online Gradebook system that gives parents an opportunity to review individual student grades, homework assignments and attendance. This tool enables teachers and administrators to collaborate and effectively communicate with parents on their student's performance. Duval County began utilizing common end-of-course assessments four years ago to continually monitor the progress that students are making in each of their courses. These assessments are reviewed each year to assure that expectations are the same classroom by classroom and throughout the district. In the category of district environment, Jacksonville is ranked third. Duval County Public Schools created new partnerships with local non-profit organizations to improve student engagement and performance. Achievers for Life is a community initiative focused on dropout prevention, which targets sixth-grade students who are at risk for academic failure. The Achievers for Life strategy addresses all five dropout predictors through family advocates, mentors and parent engagement activities. Learning to Finish is another example of a collaboration with local government and non-profit agencies, as well as the local education fund committed to increasing the graduation rate in Jacksonville. This initiative will conduct pilot programs at six public schools this fall, assist the school district in making the operational changes needed to support at-risk students and build community awareness of the depth and significance of the dropout crisis in Duval County. Duval County Public Schools operates 172 schools and serves approximately 123,000 students. The school district is committed to providing high quality educational opportunities that will inspire all students to acquire and use the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a global economy and culturally diverse world.

FABOM Dialogs with Sink, Crist, and Carroll, Positions on Amendments 5 & 6 HeardFrom Staff Writer With Jennifer Carroll FAOBM Vice President Johnny Hunter Tempo News, James Madison The Florida Sun,Secretary Dianne Speights The Weekly Challenger, Kevin T Collin The Orlando Times, Clara McLaughlin The Florida Star and The Georgia Star, Rep. Jennifer Carroll Republican for Lt. Governor, President Bobby R. Henry Westside Gazette, Jacqueline Miles The Pensacola Voice, Linda Fortenberry Capital Outlook Rita Perry The Jacksonville Free Press, Clarence McKee Esq. McKee Communications. Inc.,Gayle Andrews Andrews Plus, Sylvia Perry The Jacksonville Free Press, and Treasurer Kay Andrews Florida Sentinel Bulletin All photos by F M PowellTampa, FL---As apart of their annual meeting the Florida Association of Black Owned Media, Inc. (FABOM) began its day of business and candidate queries and issues with a breakfast with Alex Sink, Floridas Democratic candidate for Governor. FABOM is Floridas only organization representing established African American owned media. Sink: I cant win without the Black vote. Sink outlined a detailed Education Policy Plan with specifics that address the alarmingly low Black male graduation rates, the negative impact of the FCAT on grade school performance, Pre-K investment, upgrading public school curriculum and technical schools as a continuing education option for students interested in education alternatives. Sink made clear that she understood the importance of education as the vehicle that breaks down barriers to progress. She said it is my priority, pointing to her 27 page plan that includes many education issues of particular importance to Black Floridians. A particular concern of the organization was the high dropout rate of Black males. Sink said her task force will address those concerns along with other important education issues. Sink also said she intends to restore the Small and Minority Business initiatives and the Matchmaker program. She also confirmed plans to appoint a Black to the Parole and Probation Commission. Crist: Im running with hope instead of hate. Im the Happy Warrior. Governor Charlie Crist and his wife Carole paid a surprise visit to the FABOM, where Crist discussed his civil rights record that includes his passage of landmark legislation and the prosecution and shutdown of a racist hotel owner in Perry, Florida while he was Attorney General. Crist, who is running for the US Senate, said that while he has the advantage as an Independent to reach across the aisle to both parties, hes not afraid to do the right thing. He proved that during the last legislative session when he vetoed Senate Bill 6 that would have hurt public school teachers. Crist also appointed James E.C. Perry, an African American, to the Florida Supreme Court. As Governor, he was constantly under fire from Republicans for accepting nearly $800 million in stimulus revenues from President Barak Obama. Crist said, Im going to do whats right for you. And I will not disrespect the President under any circumstances. Im running with hope instead of hate. Carroll: We will improve economics, improve education and social status. The Republican Lt. Governor candidate made history again as the first of her Party to appear before the FABOM to make the case for her ticket. Rep. Jennifer Carroll was given the nod by controversial GOP Gubernatorial hopeful Rick Scott who spent over $50 million to capture the nomination. Scott approached and was turned down by several White Republican women before asking Carroll to join him. Carroll is the lone Republican in the Florida Black Caucus. The Trinidad native reviewed her legislative record since being elected to the Florida House of Representatives that included Trespassing on a Domestic Violence Center, Live the Dream license plate, Black Male College Explorers program funding, Florida Civil Right Hall of Fame and recertification of the Minority Business Enterprise. Carroll pledged, Our team will move all of us in a positive direction. Ellen Freidin: Amendments 5 & 6 protect minority voters. Fair Districts leader Ellen Freidin briefed FABOM members on the effort to educate and inform voters on the benefits of passing Amendments 5 & 6. The amendments are designed to take the politics out of drawing districts and are on the November 2 ballot. Republican lawmakers and a few Black legislators joined in supporting an opposing the measure that would have undermined 5&6. Three Florida courts including the Florida Supreme Court said the Republican amendment would do nothing but kill 5 & 6 and confuse voters. Laverne Kelly: Amendments 5 & 6 would drastically reduce minority representation. Representing Nix Amendments 5 & 6, Laverne Kelly explained the pain African Americans would suffer if Amendments 5 & 6 are passed. She advised that Congressman Lewis of Georgia, who suffered much on behalf of our civil rights, stated at a conference in Jacksonville, that the number of representatives in local, state and federal positions will be greatly diminished, if Amendments 5 & 6 are passed. She further advised that Congressman Hastings, in an effort to understand the proposed amendments, ordered an independent study to show how a vote of yes or no would affect Floridas African Americans. The report, according to Kelly, shows that if the amendments are passed, African Americans and other minorities would not get the needed representation. She added that Congresswoman Corrine Brown instigated the change that we now have because minorities were unable to elect minorities. Prior to the change, the last minority that was elected to serve in strong political positions was during reconstruction. FABOM was incorporated in 2006 and has met with the Governor and Florida cabinet, legislative leaders on numerous occasions to urge political leaders to address issues of interest to the community. The organization motto is Only Sunshine Covers Black Florida Better. FABOM POSITIONScontinueson page B-8

JALA was able to reach more than 100,000 people on the First Coast during Fair Housing Month events, which took place in April. Attorneys from the Fair Housing Unit (FHU) promoted fair housing and educated people about the Federal Fair Housing Act, which makes it illegal to discriminate in housing based on families with children, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, or sex. The highlight of the month was the Fair Housing Forum Fair Housing 2010: A Time to Act. The FHU joined forces with Florida State College at Jacksonville for this event which discussed the State of Fair Housing, Reasonable Accommodations and Modifications under the Fair Housing Act and the Violence Against Women Act. Attorneys from the Fair Housing Unit were also featured on First Coast Connect and First Coast News and they took part in a Fair Housing Symposium, A Community Health Fair in St. Johns County and the World of Nations at Metropolitan Park. JALA looks forward to seeing everyone at next Aprils Fair Housing Month events.

ment but it is not clear if Horace was a part of

20, were arrested Tuesday on charges of
accessory after the fact but neither had been
charged with murder at the time of this writ-


ing.
Funeral services for Horace is scheduled for Saturday at the St. Paul Missionary
Baptist Church on Winton Drive.
The viewing is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at the C. L. Page Funeral Home

Bishop's Ex-Wife Said He was Abusive

Pastor Bishop Eddie Long is really
getting it thrown at him as one of the
young men who accused him of sexu-
al misconduct has been speaking out
to all who will listen about the many
P sexual encounters between he and the
bishop. In fact, he said, some even
occurred on the church grounds,
before and after morning services.
The four men who accused Long of
sexual misbehavior, said that Long
traded sex acts for cars, clothes and
Bishop Eddie Long mother material possessions. The
men say that after evaluating the
encounters, they feel that Long is a pedophilia.
No one has heard any comments from Bishop Long's present wife, but his ex-wife
charged him with abuse in their divorce papers. She claims that when she was 7 1/2
months pregnant, Long beat her with his fists. She said he had a "vicious and vio-
lent temper," according to the divorce papers pulled by the Atlanta-Journal.
Bishop Long has not made any moves to resign as pastor of New Birth Missionary
Baptist Church.

they said, Warren Jones, Dr. Gaffney and Reggie Brown all represent some of the

Lone Senator Denies Justice to Black Farmers and
Native Americans Despite Bipartisan Agreement
Justice has again been delayed for thousands of Black farmers and Native
Americans across our country, thanks to the rogue actions of one US Senator Tom
Coburn (R-OK). The landmark settlement that would right decades of discrimina-
tion against Black farmers by the U.S. Department of Agriculture had been a rare
point of bipartisan agreement. After negotiations between leading Democrats and
Republicans, it was set to be passed by unanimous consent, but Senator Cobumrn
objected saying the settlement funds were not offset by budget cuts elsewhere.

I,


I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our
work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes keeping
you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been
working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to
people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers and
teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners,
helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people
affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate
claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people
back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in place for
as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the
impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in
the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect,
but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal.
We will do everything we can to make this right.

I Have Moved!!!

I can't remember if I told you that:
I have moved out from 1 Beggars Alley,
located at 2 Poverty Lane at the comer of Bleak
and Buster Circle.
Yes as of today, I have a brand new home.

My new address is Living Well on 3 Abundance Drive,
located at the comer of Blessings Street and Prosperity Peak.
No longer will I allow myself to travel on the Begging Peter
to Pay Paul Route, which is located at a Dead End Intersection
called I Don't Have, since it connects with Borrowers Junction.

I no longer hang out at Failure's Place, near Excuses Avenue, next
to Procrastination Point. I've moved to an upscale community
called Higher Heights with unlimited potential and
Opportunities for me to succeed.

Look at me, each day that I'm awake,
I am thankful that I'm a product of my new environment.
All of my clothes are tailor made; I'm dressed in life's finest.
Let me introduce you to them: Divine Favor, Conceive, Believe,
Act on Faith, Be Persistent, and Always Be Prepared to Achieve.

Life is good because God is good!!
Care to change your address?
There are many vacancies!

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS,
I AM WELL BLESSED AND SO ARE YOU!!!

It is with great joy that I announce the forthcoming release of the 75th Anniversary Edition of The American Beach Book of Homes. This picturesque book showcases an array
of traditional and eclectic architectural structures that have defined American Beach, including the first home built in 1935 for A. L. Lewis, a founding member of this historic site.
Through eight chapters readers embark on a time lined journey of the progression of a virgin landmark spanning from the first homes through the last homes, and culminating with
the grand opening of the American Beach Community Center. A manifest of original American Beach property owners from 1935-1945 and property owners in 2010 is among
many vignettes found in this historical manuscript.
You are invited to add this collector's item to your library today. There are only 500 copies worldwide. This 125 page, 9x12 coffee table book, published by W. Bill
Reynolds/Jetty Man's High Pitched Hum Publishing which sells for $34.95 is truly a bargain buy from now until December 31 at $24.95. Please place your order right away and
capitalize on this special low introductory price while books are available. The first 75 books come with a Certificate of Authenticity and will be sold for $50.00. All books will be
autographed and numbered.
If you would like a "First Day Issue" please complete and return the enclosed form. Then join us on Thursday, November 11, between Noon and 4:00 P. M. at the American
Beach Community Center located at 1600 Julia Street in American Beach for a book and 75th anniversary party.

Rinetta, met and interviewed Edward Nelson in Jacksonville, Florida. He is 70 yrs old and
is known as "one of the most fit in the world". This goes to show that if one is dedicated
and determined then one can reach ones goal. A few tips that Mr. Nelson gives is eat in
moderation and exercise. There is no magic pill or a specific diet.

Rinetta's Story........
I have had issues with my weight since I was a child, but loved and partic-
ipated in sports so was able to maintain my weight until after I had my son.
I know now that I am an emotional eater meaning I overeat when I am real-
ly happy, stressed or unhappy. I got inspired to start working out again after
my family reunion in 2008 where I noticed I was one of the youngest but
one of the unhealthiest. I also got more inspired last year after my father had
heart surgery, which I know was a wakeup call for me about the true effects
of heart disease. I have so far lost 50 pounds. Many have been asking how
you did it? I don't have a special pill, diet, drink, or exercise. I have been a
member of my neighborhood YMCA-West Orem for 2 years. It provides a
great foundation for support for me and my son for exercise and family
activities. I work out 4-5 times per week at least an hour on those days. I
do portion control with my meals with limiting sugar intake because that's
my weakness! I first give credit to God for keeping me focused on my
health, my son (my biggest cheerleader/fan), and lastly but not least, great
friends and family for support. You cannot think that losing weight can be
done alone-you must be committed to yourself and have a strong support
system. RF

ANGELS

in the midst










The sequel to the critically acclaimed novel
"DON'T BLINK WHEN ESD CALLS"


Curt Felton, Jr. is the newly elected mayor of Forrestville, a large conservative
city in north Florida, infamous for being named after Nathan Bedford Forrest, the
first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. There are some people who don't want an
African American to lead their city and Felton's extra-marital affairs give them plen-
ty of ammunition to keep him from taking office on Inauguration Day. Is it White
racism, Black rage or Felton's sexual recklessness that leads him down the path of a
criminal? FELTON IS IN A HOT MESS THIS TIME!
Kidnap, murder, infidelity and spirituality put sizzle, spice and the Word of God
in ANGELS IN THE MIDST, the thrilling sequel to DON'T BLINK WHEN
GOD CALLS.

Gratitude


S. When I woke up this morning, the first thing I
did was to thank my Creator for giving me life and

-- -breath. I then went into my kitchen and made myself
some fresh blended watermelon juice, and had some
S-- quiet time. This is my morning regimen of self-care.

S- You see, the first step to ANY sort of change is to have GRATITUDE for
the exact moment that we stand in now. Although you are hurting, and filled with
doubt and pain about your past, you can rest in the comfort of now knowing that
you are still alive and filled with purpose. The next step, is to engage in rituals of
self care. What is your self-care ritual? How do you feel when you take care of
-- yourself? And what about when you don't?
Your challenge today, is to spend 15 minutes worth of quiet time reflect-
ing (and journaling) on what you are grateful for. What gratitude do you have

C toward yourself? And your loved ones? What about those who have hurt/harmed


you? How can these things lend to your progress in the future?
Practical Rituals:
Download/Listen to the song: What I Cannot Change by LeAnn Rimes
Read the poem: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou
Say the following Affirmation: "I Am Supported by Life"
Eat one piece of fresh fruit or a vegetable; taking care of our outer selves aids


in better caring for our inner selves.

The 9th ranked University of Florida Gators (3-0, 1-0
SEC) hosted the University of Kentucky Wildcats (3-0; 0-0) on
Saturday September 25, 2010 at 7:00 PM in Gainesville, FL
with the Gators rumbling to a victory.
The Gators won the opening coin toss and elected to
receive the ball first in the second half of the game.
The Wildcats received the kickoff and after the drive
stalled, punted the ball to the Gators. Uncharacteristic of the
Gators this season, the offense scored a touchdown with 11:09
showing on the game clock. It was a Trey Burton 11-yard run
and with the extra point good, the Gators led 7-0. Late in the
quarter, Burton scored again on a 11-yard pass from Gator quar- GIto WR Carl Moore
terback John Brantley and with the extra point good, the Gators
led at the end of the 1st quarter; 14-0.
In the 2nd quarter, the Gators added another defensive touchdown with
Jeremy Brown intercepting a Wildcat pass and returning it 52-yards. The Wildcats
finally got on the scoreboard with an 11-yard touchdown strike from Randall Cobb
to Chris Matthews with 3:22 left to play in the first half. The half time score was:
Gators 21, Wildcats 7.
The Gators continued scoring in the
3rd quarter with a Burton 10-yard run and
had the extra point blocked. Kentucky fired
back with 27-yard touchdown strike to
Matthews and in the middle of the quarter,
the score was Gators 27, Kentucky 14.
At this point in the game, vic-
tory was not certain for the Gators; howev-
er, with 1:20 left to play in the 3rd quarter,
another touchdown y Trey Burton put the
.....Gators up 34 to the Wildcats 14 points to


close out the quarter. I
The Gator's Troy Burton
added two more touchdowns on runs of 3-yards and 7-yards in
the 4th quarter to pile on additional points for the game final:
Gator 48; Wildcats 14.
The only touchdowns for both teams were scored by players
wearing the number 8 (Burton and Matthews) on their jerseys.
This was the 24 win in a row for the Gators over the Wildcats
and the six touchdowns
by Burton in a single
game eclipsed the mark
9) Sprint Forarage set by Tim Tebow, the
2007 Heisman winner,
against South Carolina. "He's (Tebow) the
best football player to ever play college
football," said Burton. "It's an honor to be in
the same sentence as him."
The 7th ranked Florida Gators (4-0;
2-0) will travel to Tuscaloosa Alabama for a
rematch of the 2009 SEC Championship
game versus the number 1 ranked Crimson
Tide (4-0, 1-0 SEC) at 8:00 PM EST which
will air on CBS.
The Tide played a tough number 10V
ranked Arkansas Razorback team this past
Saturday and had to score 10 unanswered ooy (2) breaks long n against Widts
fourth quarter points in the last 6:00 minutes
of the game to come out with a win.

A native of Tyler, Texas, Alexander played in
14 games for the Patriots in 2009 and ranked third on
the team with 14 special teams tackles. He spent the


2010 preseason with the club

final cuts. He was originally
signed as an undrafted rook-
ie by the Patriots in 2004 and
spent the majority of his
rookie season on the club's
practice squad.

State where he began his
career as a safety before
moving to linebacker as a
sophomore. He lettered in
four sports football, bas-

more than 9,000
yards in two seasons.

The Jaguars are looking to snap a two-game
losing streak after beating Denver, 24-17, on Kickoff
Weekend. The Jaguars have dropped back-to-back
games to 2009 playoff teams in San Diego and
Philadelphia. The Jaguars struggled offensively against
the Eagles, compiling 184 total yards, and Michael
Vick threw for three touchdowns and ran for another.
The first two regular season games at EverBank
Field have been played in hot and muggy conditions.
Temperature at kickoff for the season-opener against
the Broncos was 90 degrees, the warmest in franchise
history, and it was 89 degrees to start last Sunday's
game against the Eagles despite the 4:05 start.
QB David Garrard is looking to regain his form


after struggling the last two weeks. Garrard opened the
season with three touchdown passes and a career-high
138.9 passer rating against the Broncos.
RB Maurice Jones-Drew is averaging 72.3
rushing yards in the first three games and is looking for
his first touchdown of the season. He has scored 10
touchdowns against the Colts in the previous eight
meetings. The Jaguars have recorded seven sacks led
by DT Terrance Knighton (2.0), DE Aaron Kampman
(1.5) and DT Tyson Alualu (1.5).

For the third consecutive year, Florida A&M
University (FAMU) is ranked No. 1 among historically
black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in selling
licensed merchandise. According to the Collegiate
Licensing Company (CLC), sales increased by 25 per-
cent from the 2008-2009 fiscal year gross royalties of
$79,007 to $98,863.82 in 2009-2010. The FAMU
licensing program has generated approximately $2.6
million in retail sells for this fiscal year.
"We are ecstatic to know that FAMU remains at
the top of the list in selling licensed merchandise," said
Sabrina Thompson, coordinator of licensing at FAMU.
"Our goal is to continue to increase sales in the upcom-
ing years."
Currently, FAMU has 127 licensees. Royalties
from the licensing program funds FAMU athletic schol-
arships. Previously, FAMU received 7.5 percent of the
purchase price. As of July 1, FAMU now receives 10
percent of all sales.
'This increase will assist the University in continuing to
provide excellence with caring," said Thompson.
Since August 2008, FAMU, CLC and local law
enforcement officials have patrolled the Tallahassee
marketplace in search of counterfeiters selling "knock-
off' merchandise. All counterfeit merchandise is subject
to seizure.
"The FAMU
licensing program
has been a great story
in our industry for the
last few years," said
Brian White, CLC's
vice president of
University Services.
"This year, however,
the University and its
supporters set the bar
even higher. It is not uncommon to see large year-over-
year sales increases among the country's licensing pro-
grams, but this kind of record growth over three consec-
utive years is very impressive and comes as a result of
the University's strong commitment to protecting and
marketing its brand."
The CLC is the oldest and largest collegiate
licensing agency in the U.S. and represents nearly 200
colleges, universities, bowl games, athletic conferences,
the Heisman Trophy and the NCAA.

this trip worthy and unforgettable.


JACKSONVILLE RANKS IN TOP 5 BEST CITIES FOR
SCHOOL REFORM

Jacksonville, FL According to a recent study released by the Thomas B.
Fordham Institute, Jacksonville is the 5th best city in the country for school reform
based on a variety of indicators.
"This study proves how hard the School Board and our partners have been
working to improve the rigor and academic success of all of our students," said
Duval County Public Schools' Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals. "The district con-
tinues to be open to new ideas and reform that will allow us to continue to provide
a quality education for our students in preparation for post-secondary education or
the world of work."
In the study, the authors examined six domains that are crucial to a
reform friendly climate: 1) access to a steady flow of talented individuals; 2) a
pipeline of readily accessible funding from public and private sources; 3) a thriv-
ing charter school market; 4) attention to quality control metrics that guide and
regulate entrepreneurial ventures; 5) openness to nontraditional providers and
reforms at the district level; and 6) similar openness at the municipal level.
acksonville ranked number one in the area of quality control, noting our rig-
orous accountability systems and comprehensive data systems. Duval County is
one of only six districts in the state that uses a pay for performance program for
teachers and school administrators, using individual student data to show the aca-
demic movement of students. Last year, the district implemented On Course, an
Online Gradebook system that gives parents an opportunity to review individual
student grades, homework assignments and attendance. This tool enables teachers
and administrators to collaborate and effectively communicate with parents on their
student's performance. Duval County began utilizing common end-of-course
assessments four years ago to continually monitor the progress that students are
making in each of their courses. These assessments are reviewed each year to
assure that expectations are the same classroom by classroom and throughout the
district.
In the category of district environment, Jacksonville is ranked third. Duval
County Public Schools created new partnerships with local non-profit organiza-
tions to improve student engagement and performance. Achievers for Life is a com-
munity initiative focused on dropout prevention, which targets sixth-grade students
who are at risk for academic failure. The Achievers for Life strategy addresses all
five dropout predictors through family advocates, mentors and parent engagement
activities.
Learning to Finish is another example of a collaboration with local govern-
ment and non-profit agencies, as well as the local education fund committed to
increasing the graduation rate in Jacksonville. This initiative will conduct pilot pro-
grams at six public schools this fall, assist the school district in making the opera-
tional changes needed to support at-risk students and build community awareness
of the depth and significance of the dropout crisis in Duval County.
Duval County Public Schools operates 172 schools and serves approxi-
mately 123,000 students. The school district is committed to providing high quali-
ty educational opportunities that will inspire all students to acquire and use the
knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a global economy and culturally diverse
world.


mad dash to get a few words from Debra Lee. All
the while Danehsia Ferguson our entertainment
reporter kept Roland Martin at bay with her witty personality and Brittney
Anderson whipped out into the hall to get a quote from Wendy Robinson.
This was team work at its finest.
The member of our staff that was missing from this scene was
Brittney Anderson who was upstairs uploading content the Tigers Roar
website. When I look at the photographs it makes me think of the theme of
the CBC, which was "Celebrating the Vision Continuing the journey and
Advancing the Mission". The continuing journey and the advancing mission
is education. I thought of the words that Secretary of Education, Amy
Duncan, said "In America now you have to compete at a higher level". SSU
has given me as well as my staff the opportunity and the tools needed to
compete at these higher levels. You can see this through the products of
our hard work.
As we winded down from our D.C. adventure I stopped to look at the
pictures form the Phoenix Awards Dinner where President Barack Obama
and the first Lady attended. I thought of all the things I have learned and the
many situations I have endured and realized that hard work really does pay
off and this just the beginning of a journey not just for me but for all of us.

Tampa, FL---As apart of their annual meeting the Florida Association of
Black Owned Media, Inc. (FABOM) began it's day of business and candidate
queries and issues with a breakfast with Alex Sink, Florida's Democratic candidate
for Governor. FABOM is Florida's only organization representing established
African American owned media.
Sink: "I can't win without the Black vote".
Sink outlined a detailed Education Policy Plan with specifics that address
the alarmingly low Black male graduation rates, the negative impact of the FCAT
on grade school performance, Pre-K investment, upgrading public school curricu-
lum and technical schools as a continuing education option for students interested
in education alternatives. Sink made clear that she understood the importance of
education as the vehicle that breaks down barriers to progress. She said it is "my
priority," pointing to her 27 page plan that includes many education issues of par-
ticular importance to Black Floridians. A particular concern of the organization
was the high dropout rate of Black males. Sink said her task force will address
those concerns along with other important education issues. Sink also said she
intends to restore the Small and Minority Business initiatives and the Matchmaker
program. She also confirmed plans to appoint a Black to the Parole and Probation
Commission.
Crist: "I'm running with hope instead of hate. I'm the Happy Warrior."
Governor Charlie Crist and his wife Carole paid a surprise visit to the
FABOM, where Crist discussed his civil rights record that includes his passage of
landmark legislation and the prosecution and shutdown of a racist hotel owner in
Perry, Florida while he was Attorney General. Crist, who is running for the US
Senate, said that while he has the advantage as an Independent to reach across the
aisle to both parties, he's not afraid to do the right thing. He proved that during
the last legislative session when he vetoed Senate Bill 6 that would have hurt pub-
lic school teachers. Crist also appointed James E.C. Perry, an African American, to
the Florida Supreme Court. As Governor, he was constantly under fire from
Republicans for accepting nearly $800 million in stimulus revenues from
President Barak Obama. Crist said,

"I'm going to do what's right for you. And I will not disrespect the President under
any circumstances. I'm running with hope instead of hate."
Carroll: "We will improve economics, improve education and social status."
The Republican Lt. Governor candidate made history again as the first of
her Party to appear before the FABOM to make the case for her ticket. Rep.
Jennifer Carroll was given the nod by controversial GOP Gubernatorial hopeful
Rick Scott who spent over $50 million to capture the nomination. Scott
approached and was turned down by several White Republican women before ask-
ing Carroll to join him. Carroll is the lone Republican in the Florida Black
Caucus. The Trinidad native reviewed her legislative record since being elected
to the Florida House of Representatives that included Trespassing on a Domestic
Violence Center, Live the Dream license plate, Black Male College Explorers pro-
gram funding, Florida Civil Right Hall of Fame and recertification of the Minority
Business Enterprise. Carroll pledged, "Our team will move all of us in a
positive direction."
Ellen Freidin: "Amendments 5 & 6 protect minority voters."
Fair Districts leader Ellen Freidin briefed FABOM members on the effort
to educate and inform voters on the benefits of passing Amendments 5 & 6. The
amendments are designed to take the politics out of drawing districts and are on
the November 2 ballot. Republican lawmakers and a few Black legislators joined
in supporting an opposing the measure that would have undermined 5&6. Three
Florida courts including the Florida Supreme Court said the Republican amend-
ment would do nothing but kill 5 & 6 and confuse voters.
Laverne Kelly: "Amendments 5 & 6 would drastically reduce minority represen-
tation."
Representing "Nix Amendments 5 & 6", Laverne Kelly explained the pain
African Americans would suffer if Amendments 5 & 6 are passed. She advised
that Congressman Lewis of Georgia, who suffered much on behalf of our civil
rights, stated at a conference in Jacksonville, that the number of representatives in
local, state and federal positions will be greatly diminished, if Amendments 5 & 6
are passed. She further advised that Congressman Hastings, in an effort to under-
stand the proposed amendments, ordered an independent study to show how a vote
of 'yes' or 'no' would affect Florida's African Americans. The report, according
to Kelly, shows that if the amendments are passed, African Americans and other
minorities would not get the needed representation. She added that
Congresswoman Corrine Brown instigated the change that we now have because
minorities were unable to elect minorities. Prior to the change, the last minority
that was elected to serve in strong political positions was during reconstruction.
FABOM was incorporated in 2006 and has met with the Governor and
Florida cabinet, legislative leaders on numerous occasions to urge political leaders
to address issues of interest to the community. The organization motto is "Only
Sunshine Covers Black Florida Better".

Jacksonville Area Legal Aid's (JALA)
Fair Housing Unit would like to thank everyone
who made Fair Housing Month a success.
JALA was able to reach more than 100,000
people on the First Coast during Fair Housing
Month events, which took place in April.
Attorneys from the Fair Housing Unit (FHU) pro-
moted fair housing and educated people about
the Federal Fair Housing Act, which makes it
illegal to discriminate in housing based on fami-
lies with children, race, color, national origin,
religion, disability, or sex.

The highlight of the month was the Fair Housing
Forum "Fair Housing 2010: A Time to Act." The
FHU joined forces with Florida State College at
Jacksonville for this event which discussed the
State of Fair Housing, Reasonable
Accommodations and Modifications under the
Fair Housing Act and the Violence Against
Women Act. Attorneys from the Fair Housing
Unit were also featured on First Coast Connect
and First Coast News and they took part in a
Fair Housing Symposium, A Community Health
Fair in St. Johns County and the World of
Nations at Metropolitan Park. JALA looks for-
ward to seeing everyone at next April's Fair
Housing Month events.
