THE RECOVERY ACT
With the Recovery Act, we've started to reverse nearly a decade's worth of failed economic policies and rebuild
our economy on a new foundation that puts the middle class first.
Those failed policies of the past focused on cutting taxes for millionaires and billionaires.
They starved clean energy, research and technology projects of working capital, putting America years behind
in the innovation race, and neglected America's critical infrastructure, allowing the roads, rails and bridges we
need to be competitive to deteriorate. Small businesses couldn't gain access to the capital they needed to grow
and American factories closed their doors as more manufacturing moved abroad.
And, most devastating, those failed policies caused the fastest decline in jobs in decades, with an average
750,000 Americans losing their jobs each month by the time we took office.
Today, the Recovery Act is helping reverse that slide and put our economy back on firm footing.
* The Recovery Act immediately cut taxes for 95 percent of working families, giving 110 million hard-hit fami-
lies a boost in their paychecks each week.
* The Recovery Act is bringing new life to cutting-edge projects and is planting seed money to launch whole new
industries so we can lead the world in innovation.
* The Recovery Act is rebuilding tens of thousands of America's highways, ports, rails and bridges to help spur
local economic growth and make it easier to move American products in the global marketplace.
* The Recovery Act is helping nearly 70,000 small businesses not only stay alive, but expand and hire, by pro-
viding nearly $30 billion in small business loan assistance.
* The Recovery Act is helping American factories re-open and re-invent so that we can be more competitive than
ever before in the global marketplace and make the best products in the world right here at home.
* And, most importantly, the Recovery Act has put 3 million Americans to work that would be unemployed had
we not acted and now our economy is adding private sector jobs instead of losing them.
But if Republicans in Congress had their way, none of this progress would have been made. They opposed the
Recovery Act from the beginning and have sat on the sidelines rooting for failure ever since.
To this day, they still believe we would be better off had we not acted. Better off with 3 million more Americans
out of work. Better off with tens of thousands more roads and bridges still in decay. Better
off with 70,000 more small businesses struggling to stay open. Better off with middle class families hung out to
And they not only believe we'd be better off if we'd done nothing but they say that if given the opportunity,
they'd take us right back to the exact same policies that got us into this mess in the first place.
We've come a long way since this recession took hold and we still need to do more. This economic crisis was
a decade in the making and we're not going to reach full recovery overnight. We have to build on the progress
we've made with the Recovery Act and do more of what's working to counter a recession this deep.
That's why the President has continued to lay out additional measures to rebuild our economy investments in
infrastructure, tax cuts for small businesses, incentives to spur American innovation. And we hope Republicans
will finally stop obstructing progress and join us as we work to repair the damage they
caused over the last decade.
But America faces a clear choice right now: Do we return to the failed policies of
the past decade, settling for a slow decline, where we keep losing jobs to our com-
0 0petitors and middle-class families keep losing ground? Or do we continue to build on
the progress made with the Recovery Act so that we once again have a growing econ-
omy and a thriving middle-class? Do we slide backward or move forward?
If we choose to move forward, then we will restore this economy; rebuild our mid-
dle-class; and reclaim the American Dream for the next generation.

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

Reality vs. Illusion
Reality is something that is unique to each and
every one of us. What one person may perceive as "nor-
mal" or "comforting" may be torturous to another. IF you
have ever known anyone who was operating in an altered
state of mind (i.e. on drugs, medication, drunk, schizoid,
etc.), then you know just what I mean. I want to talk to you
about YOUR reality today. What is your definition of what
is real and valid in your life? And how do you go about expressing and living out
this reality in your daily life?
Do you allow other people to paint reality for you, or do you boldly define
what it is? I ask these questions because many of us are in the first category: we
allow external persons, places, events, and ideas to determine what is and is not our
reality. Are you accepting another person's BS definition of love? Are you going
to a job that you are overqualified to work? Do you dim your star to make others
comfortable and less intimidated? If so, then you are living OUTSIDE of your real-
A lot of the suffering that we endure on a daily basis is CHOSEN. Yes, I
said that! Often we choose to allow the details of our lives to overwhelm us and
bring us to a point of no inspiration, and no real drive to succeed and be happy.
Suffering occurs when we as individuals refuse to closely examine our definitions
of reality and what we do and do not want in our lives. So, I challenge you today
to ask yourself, "Are you keeping it REAL with YOU?" Are you living the best life
you can now? IF the answer is no, what is holding you back from doing so?
Psychologists say that the mind is the most powerful 'drug' on the planet.
By this, they mean that the mind has the power to create and/or negate any and
every reality and illusion known to humankind. Don't believe me? Close your eyes Copyrighted Material

Dear friend, I encourage you to pursue your life's desires and purposes
NOW, because it is all we have. Don't live in someone else's reality telling your-
self, "I'll do what I want tomorrow". Live fully in the present, and you will find
yourself walking in reality.
Create a list of 10 questions for yourself about anything that has been concerning
you lately, fold this paper and sleep with it under your pillow for as many as 3

behind a plastic grocery bag
with trash inside. Several male
subjects, who were with the victim but down stairs at the time, began to chase the
subject but were unable to locate him as he was last seen running in a southeast
Deputies checked the area but were not able to locate the suspect who was

fifth time in his

his third against the Colts. He has a franchise-record 13 career field goals of

A 16-YEAR-OLD FAMU
FRESHMAN HAS EARNED
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida A&M University (FAMU) freshman, Ralph
Jones Jr., a 16 year old from Atlanta, Ga. turned down offers to Howard
University, Fort Valley State University and Morehouse College to attend
FAMU. In addition to these institutions, he also turned down prominent Ivy
League institutions such as the University of Alabama, Stanford University,
Pennsylvania State University and Harvard University to become a Rattler.
With an SAT score of 2,120 out of 2,400, it is understandable how he
was admitted to the top institutions in the U.S.
Jones is a recipient of the Life-Gets-Better Scholarship and a National
Achievement Finalist. Jones was awarded $120,000 in scholarships, which
includes a stipend, tuition and fees, room and board, books and a laptop.
Being a member of a family who has a three-generation history of
attending Fort Valley State University and parents who are educators, Jones
feels that his childhood played a huge role in his development.
"My background growing up is a little different," said Jones. "My par-
ents are both educators. My mother is a first grade teacher and my dad was
a college professor for some time. Needless to say, a large focus was on
education in my house."
By the time Jones was four-years old, he was adding, subtracting,
dividing, reading at the ninth grade level and doing basic algebra.
As impressive as Jones' ability to learn at a young age may seem, he
continued to excel by setting a record of having the highest SAT scores in the
past five years at his high school.
Jones' former SAT math prep teacher and FAMU alumnae Kemberlee
Pugh Bingham challenged her students by promising them an "A" in her
class if they scored high on the SAT test. As a junior in high school, Jones
scored a 1,910. The following year, he increased his SAT scores by more
than 200 points.
"You could never forget a kid like Ralph," said Bingham. "He is a child
prodigy and has always been different from his peers. He would often pro-
vide a challenge. One day, we went toe-to-toe and he strongly argued his
point. I appreciate a kid who
thinks critically; it shows that they care."
When Jones shared his score with Bingham, she immediately inquired
what college he planned to attend.
"When I first told her, she was excited," said Jones, a mechanical
engineering student. "One thing I can say about FAMU alumni is that they
will lobby for their school. Before I knew it, she had gone over to her FAMU
billboard and gave me a brochure on the Life-Gets-Better Scholarship, which
was the first time I heard of the scholarship. She was like "Baby did you know
you can go to FAMU for free for four years with a full scholarship and a com-
puter?' and I was like 'no ma'am.'"
The following year, Jones attended the recruitment fair that FAMU
hosted in Atlanta, Ga., where he felt the energy in the room as President
James H. Ammons began to articulate the Rattler Charge.
"When Dr. Ammons got up, he began to say "When the dark clouds
gather over the horizon' there was this atmosphere of tension and I knew
something was going to happen," said Jones. "I did not know exactly what;
it was very exciting. Then suddenly you heard hissing from all over the room
and you saw people with fingers in the air and that is when you start to feel
it. I was like wow! This is something bigger than what I could have expect-
During the award ceremony, Ammons awarded Jones with a $120,000
scholarship for four years along with a list of other incentives. It was Jones
first scholarship before he learned about being selected as a National
"I am so pleased to know that he decided to attend FAMU," said
Bingham. "I love my alma mater. When he told me what he made on the
SAT, I was in shock because you do not come across those scores in my
Jones expressed that he has earned his place at FAMU.
"Everything that I have worked for has helped me earn my place
here," said Jones. "I am going to earn my right to stay here and when I grad-
uate, I am going to have earned my degree."

Wolfson Children's Hospital Increases Visitation Precautions as
Flu Season Begins
Jacksonville, Florida, October 6, 2010 Now that flu season has begun, Wolfson
Children's Hospital has implemented visitation precautions effective October 1,
2010, through March 31, 2011. During this timeframe, children age 5 and under will
not be able to visit patients in the hospital. Parents and legal guardians are welcome
to be with their hospitalized child at any time.
This early precaution is due to the fact that young children are at higher risk
for the flu, and is reinforced by feedback from parents and caregivers at Wolfson
Children's Hospital during last year's HINI epidemic.
In addition to the age restriction, Wolfson Children's Hospital asks that any-
one with a fever or flu-like symptoms refrain from visiting patients at the hospital.
This includes, but is not limited to, the patient's siblings, family members and
"We are committed to protecting our patients, family members, visitors and
staff against the flu," says Wolfson's Chief Medical Officer Jerry Bridgham, MD.
"Because young children are particularly vulnerable, we are taking this precaution to
prevent exposure and reduce the likelihood of spread of germs to children who are
already sick and hospitalized. We appreciate the community's understanding."
