to all who will listen about the many

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.

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
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.

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

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.
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

S. When I woke up this morning, the first thing I

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?

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.

by DT Terrance Knighton (2.0), DE Aaron Kampman
(1.5) and DT Tyson Alualu (1.5).

JACKSONVILLE RANKS IN TOP 5 BEST CITIES FOR
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
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
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
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
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
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-
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".

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
