Oscar nominee and practically a Jacksonville citizen (aunt is owner of Gateway Bookstore at Gateway Mall), has been added to the cast of a new action comedy, Tower Heist.Ž Sidbe joins a stellar cast of seasoned comedians Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller. This is her first major role since Precious.Ž Juan Williams has served for many years as a news analyst for NPR but was fired when he stated on The OReilly FactorŽ Fox News Channel, Monday, that Muslims make him nervous when he sees them on the same airplane as himself, implying that Muslims are terrorists. NPRs CEO said his statement and feeling are not appropriate for their network. However, Fox News apparently have a different attitude. Wherein NPR found the statement offensive, Fox signed Williams to a three-year contract worth around $2 million. Williams position with Fox will be expanded and he will make more appearances and become a stronger fixture in the news lineup. Most media refers to Fox news as the entertainmentŽ news network because of the way they report news and information. When you talk with Eric Dunlap, you are highly motivated to get a check up, exercise regularly and enjoy every moment of your life. Dunlap said he discovered ten years ago after working out, and suffering severe pain, that he had breast cancer. Mind you, this was not his first clue but he did not recognize the early sign and neither did his physician. Exactly one year and one day prior to being evaluated, he saw a spot of blood on his shirt. He thought he might have hit something that did not cause pain. The next day he saw blood again in the same area. He did seek medical attention but the doctor did not diagnose an illness. It was a year later that he learned that he was on the same track of his mother and grandmother, who too had breast cancer. His grandmother passed shortly afterwards. His mother lived ten years before being diagnosed again two years ago. She is still with us. Mr. Dunlap says he asked for a beautiful wife and two sons. He has both and he continues to love and cherish them and at the moment, he is cancer free. The Atlanta citizen speaks to groups nation wide about breast cancer, reminding men and women the importance of annual check ups. Dont wait until October to be reminded. He can be reached at www.dunlapspeaks.com No, it is just not Blacks and Hispanics who will lose if the Fair District Amendment is passed in Florida, according to Dr. Ben Chavis. Blacks and Hispanics will lose the most because of a portion of the Supreme Courts 2009 decision and the Voting Rights Act, said Dr. Chavis. Congresswoman Corrine Brown says the goal of the Voting Rights Act was to correct discriminatory acts of the past and the legal rights of many who are a part of her district. She stressed that before 1992, the last African American from Florida who served in Congress was Josiah Walls. The Gainesville congressman lost his seat in 1876. Congressman John Lewis agreed with Congresswoman Brown. He said that he was arrested 40 times in a fight for voting rights. He has spent many hours in Florida this election period to help in every way possible to prevent this state and others who might follow, to preserve the Voting Rights Act. He joins those representatives from Florida, and Dr. Ben Chavis, a former CEO and national president of the NAACP to help defeat Amendments 5 & 6. The group of leaders stated that the 15th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution provides that the right to vote shall not be denied or abridged on the basis of race or color. The Voting Rights Act of 1964, signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson, was created because states were not enforcing these constitutional rights, thereby diluting minority voting power through redistricting. They further stressed that the Voting Rights Act requires the preservation of majority-minority districts where the minority population is sufficiently large and geographically compact so as to constitute a majority, the minority group is politically cohesive, and there is evidence of racial bloc voting that defeats the opportunity of minority voters to elect candidates of choice. All of these factors existed in 1992 when the districts were created that allowed three African Americans in Florida to win seats in Congress. That same federal court held that previous plans violated the Voting Rights Act, the Equal Protection Clause and other constitutional principles. It is believed that same factors exist today, eliminating the possibility of changing congressional representatives or future representatives from being African American. Floridas District 3 was challenged in 1996 but, defeated because of the constitution. If Amendments 5 & 6 are passed, the Voting Rights Act, which only last for 25 years anyway, will also change for states where their constitutions are amended. It is therefore imperative that Amendments 5 & 6 not pass. VOTE NO! Many are wondering what caused Ginni Thomas, wife of Savannah native, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, 19 years later, to call Professor Anita Hill asking her to apologize about her claim of sexual harassment against her husband. Maybe it is because of his court reputation; maybe it is because there is rumor about her conservative nonprofit organization taking money or maybe it is because of his old girl friend, Lillian McEwans desire to write a book discussing his obsession with large breast and pornography. Whatever, she made a call to Anita Hill, asking that she apologize to the Justice. Why? Singer Mario was arrested, according to Bossip, for attacking his mother in their Baltimore, Maryland apartment. The musician said that the alleged attack occurred when his mother, who is a recovering heroin addict, was caught using drugs in their home. She was also, according to sources, withdrawing money from his bank account to support her habit. 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...

It appeared, according to witness, that at least two people were firing at each other when one of the bullets struck a female who was driving a SUV on Blanding. After the shooting, the female hit the car in front of her. It was learned shortly that she had been shot in the head. She was taken immediately to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center in critical condition. One other person involved in the accident, caused by the shooting, was also hospitalized. JSO said that several houses were also hit by stray bullets but, no arrests were made and no suspects have been identified. One good point: A nearby business had an outside surveillance video that was turned over to the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. It is hoped the shooters are seen on the video. JSO is asking for assistance from the public in getting information to help solve this shooting incident. She is just nine years of age but, she is the daughter of Will and Jada Smith. Therefore, the possibility of her becoming rich and famous was already there, even if she chose to not get involved in the entertainment industry with her mother, her father and her brother. On Monday, October 18, Willow appeared at 106 and Park at BET Studios for a taping, as she made her musical debut with her hit single, Whip My Hair.Ž She has already been signed by Jay-Z to his Roc Nation record label. She has been widely highlighted on the web and has received comparisons to Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Beyonce.

Before he'd served even one year President Obama lost the support of the easily distracted left and engendered the white hot rage of the hate-filled right. But some of us, from all walks of life and ideological backgrounds -including this white, straight, 57-yearold, former religious right wing agitator, now progressive writer and (given my background as the son of a famous evangelical leader) this unlikely Obama supporter -are sticking with our President. Why?-because he is succeeding. We faithful Obama supporters still trust our initial impression of him as a great, good and uniquely qualified man to lead us. Obama's steady supporters will be proved right. Obama's critics will be remembered as easily panicked and prematurely discouraged at best and shriveled hate mongers at worst. The Context of the Obama Presidency Not since the days of the rise of fascism in Europe the Second World War and the Depression has any president faced more adversity. Not since the Civil War has any president led a more bitterly divided country. Not since the introduction of racial integration has any president faced a more consistently shortsighted and willfully ignorant opposition from both the right and left. As the President's poll numbers have fallen so has his support from some on the left that were hailing him as a Messiah not long ago; all those lefty websites and commentators that were falling all over themselves on behalf of our first black president during the 2008 election. The left's lack of faith has become a self-fulfilling "prophecy"-snipe at the President and then watch the poll numbers fall and then pretend you didn't have anything to do with it! Here is what Obama faced when he took office-none of which was his fault: # An ideologically divided country to the point that America was really two countries # Two wars; one that was mishandled from the start, the other that was unnecessary and immoral # The worst economic crisis since the depression # America 's standing in the world at the lowest point in history # A country that had been misled into accepting the use of torture of prisoners of war # A health care system in free fall # An educational system in free fall # A global environmental crisis of history-altering proportions (about which the Bush administration and the Republicans had done nothing) # An impasse between culture warriors from the right and left # A huge financial deficit inherited from the terminally irresponsible Bush administration. And those were only some of the problems sitting on the President's desk! "Help" from the Right? What did the Republicans and the religious right, libertarians and half-baked conspiracy theorists -that is what the Republicans were reduced to by the time Obama took office -do to "help" our new president (and our country) succeed? They claimed that he wasn't a real American, didn't have an American birth certificate, wasn't born here, was secretly a Muslim, was white-hating "racist", was secretly a communist, was actually the Anti-Christ, (!) and was a reincarnation of Hitler and wanted "death panels" to kill the elderly! They not-so-subtly called for his assassination through the not-so-subtle use of vile signs held at their rallies and even a bumper sticker quoting Psalm 109:8. They organized "tea parties" to sound off against imagined insults and all government in general and gathered to howl at the moon. They were led by insurance industry lobbyists and deranged (but well financed) "commentators" from Glenn Beck to Rush Limbaugh. The utterly discredited Roman Catholic bishops teamed up with the utterly discredited evangelical leaders to denounce a president who was trying to actually do something about the poor, the environment, to diminish the number of abortions through compassionate programs to help women and to care for the sick! And in Congress the Republican leadership only knew one word: "No!" In other words the reactionary white, rube, uneducated, crazy American far right,combined with the educated but obtuse neoconservative war mongers, religious right shills for big business, libertarian Fed Reserve-hating gold bug, gunloving crazies, child-molesting acquiescent "bishops", frontier loons and evangelical gay-hating flakes found one thing to briefly unite them: their desire to stop an uppity black man from succeeding at all costs! "Help" from the Left? What did the left do to help their newly elected president? Some of them excoriated the President because they disagreed with the bad choices he was being forced to make regarding a war in Afghanistan that he'd inherited from the worst president in modern history! Others stood up and bravely proclaimed that the President's economic policies had "failed" before the President even instituted them! Others said that since all gay rights battles had not been fully won within virtually minutes of the President taking office, they'd been "betrayed"! (Never mind that Obama's vocal support to the gay community is stronger than any other president's has been. Never mind that he signed a new hate crimes law!)

S. Senatorial candidate, Congressman Kendrick Meek held a news conference and rally Thursday at Congresswoman Browns campaign headquarters at the Gateway Town Center, across from the office of the Supervisor of Elections. The congressional representatives encouraged the citizens of Jacksonville to get out and vote. After their appeal, they walked two first time voters across the street and joined them as they voted. Early voting started on Monday, October 18 and will end on October 31. General Election day is Tuesday, November 2 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. With so much turmoil, the congressional leaders asked all to get out and vote. The two encouraged each voter to take one to ten voters with them. Many positive changes have been made since President Obama took his seat at the White House and apathy is overwhelming. They begged all Florida citizens to become more aggressive and vote as soon as possible before November 2.

PAGE A-8 THE STAR OCTOBER 23, 2010ENTERTAINMENT It is nerve wrecking enough when you have legs to run, ears to hear and eyes to see if you are being pursued by a violent, blood thirsty monster in the form of a ghost from the dead, but to be blind and have to deal with it is a whole new tenebrous situation. Being blind in a nebulous horror setting is the peril that actor Denzel Whitakers character Jerome King had to deal with in the latest fright film from horror master Wes Craven. The movie My Soul To TakeŽ centers on the sleepy little town of Riverton where legend has it that the Riverton ripper, a serial killer with multiple personalities, swore he would return to murder the seven children in town who were born the very night he died. This man was said to have had seven personalities and only one was the killer. On the night of his last attack, he was shot by police and was plunged into the towns river after a fiery ambulance crash and his body was never recovered. The legend was just a ghost story to amuse the towns children until the seven turned sixteen and one by one started to die. First of all before we delve into the movie, lets get the ever confusing issue of Whitakers name straight. Yes he is named after superstar actor Denzel Washington (first name). No he is not actor Forest Whitakers son (last name). His parents are Dale and Younalanda Whitaker. He did work with his name sake Denzel in Training DayŽ and The Great DebatersŽ and Forest Whitaker played his on-screen dad in The Great Debaters.Ž How awe inspiring was it to work with both men on the same set? Whitaker takes a breath; It was great. It was such an amazing thing. They are two magnificent actors and just really great guys so to sort of hang out with them but to also learn the technique and see where theyre coming from and learn how they pretty much built themselves up in this entertainment industry. It was wonderful to work with them.Ž How did the role of Jerome materialize for Whitaker? In reflection Whitaker said, My agent pitched it to me and he was saying that Wes Craven was coming back to the table to write and direct his first project which he hasnt done in a few years. So initially when I read the script, I was real excited because number one, Jerome was a blind kid and number two, I was going to be working with Wes Craven. I was like, this is great. I definitely wanted to try out for this role. I went to do the audition and after the first audition Wes just stood me up and said yeah, you got the role.Ž Whitaker had to make preparations to play a blind teenager which is something hes never done before. He describes the process saying, I was wearing a blind fold initially for like a week and a half just walking around my house trying to do everyday activities which is difficult. Its really hard and people take for granted all the five senses that you have. Once you lose one of them, the other ones got to work overtime. That was humbling to me in itself and I used that experience on the set. You just have to zone out and not really focus on anything. Just let your eyes rest and worry more about hearing people and interacting with them more than seeing them.Ž Whitaker has basically done it all in a short career span i.e., comedy, serious drama and now horror. Was their anything special that it took for him to do horror? He smiles, Its a different genre. Its a really intense genre where you are just always on high energy. Youre running from the monster, youre always scared, you are just very uncertain. Comedy is more natural for me than drama or horror so it is a little bit different.Ž Baby Congrats: Congrats are in order for Alicia Keys and hubby Kaseem Dean PKA Swizz Beatz on the birth of their son named Egypt Dean on Thursday, October 14, 2010.

Her team included trainer Lucian Laurin, groomer Eddie Sweat and Jockey Ron Turcotte. In 1973 Secretariat became the greatest race horse in history. He was the first to win the triple crown in 25 years. His Kentucky Derby winning time of (1:59 2/5) and Belmont Stakes time of (2:24) are records that still stand today.

The study, conducted by Mather Economics, projects that restoration will produce an increase in economic benefits of approximately $46.5 billion that could range up to $123.9 billion based on an investment of $11.5 billion. "It is clear that Everglades restoration not only produces ecological benefits, but also generates a robust economic boost to our economy. For every dollar spent on Everglades restoration, we are getting four dollars back in the form of higher home values, increased tourism and stronger fishing, boating and tourism industries," said Kirk Fordham, CEO, Everglades Foundation. "When we invest in protecting and restoring the Everglades, we are also revving up a powerful job creation engine. Aside from the good paying jobs in construction, engineering and the sciences that come with restoration projects, we are boosting employment in a wide range of industries." The study shows that for every one dollar spent on Everglades restoration as part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP), $4.04 will be generated in economic benefits. Projections indicate that there will be an incremental impact on employment of about 442,644 additional jobs over 50 years. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also estimates there will be 22,966 new shortto mid-term jobs created as a result of actual restoration projects. "Let's think about the basic ecosystem services provided by the Everglades as a grocery store featuring 'products' ranging from water purification to enhanced tourism. We created six distinct aisles or divisions and a catch-all section. For each of these categories, we conservatively estimated, using best available data and economic methods, the increase in economic value of a restored Everglades ecosystem," said Bobby McCormick, Ph.D., Mather Economics' principal investigator assigned to the project. "The bottom line, as our analysis strongly suggests, is that the rewards of restoration far outweigh the economic costs." In addition, the study shows that Everglades restoration will result in added value to the economy of $5,129 per individual residing in the 16-county South Florida Water Management District. "Too often, we hear arguments that we can't afford to invest in Everglades restoration during an economic downturn. Instead, smart policymakers recognize that the future of our state's economic growth depends on protecting the Everglades and the water supply it provides to one in three Floridians. Simply put: we can't grow our economy if we allow the Everglades to collapse," said Fordham.

FLORIDA GEORGIA Meet The Browns... When you hear the names "David Mann and wife Tamela Mann" you immediately think "Meet the Browns." Mr. Brown and his daughter, Cora. The one day that I can truly say my feet were tired and my wonderful friends were getting on my nerves in their attempts to convince me that I could defy the laws of time, I found myself sitting with Mr. Brown and Cora. We did not discuss the very successful "Meet the Browns" series on TBS, her CD and Gospel Video -THE MASTER PLAN or Mr. Browns GOOD OL TIME CHURCH and Tamela's CD, GOTTA KEEP MOVIN'. It was a conversation that was not spoken in words, but spoken in actions. Greeted by the "The Essence of Christian Character" of Mr. David and Mrs. Tamela Mann, I immediately begin to recall the testimony that my friend Danny Clay shared with me. The day he met David Mann, it was a conversation full of humor. Gradually, Mr. Mann begins to talk about the goodness of the Lord, Gods Grace and Mercy and his Faith in God, as a believer. Mr. Mann told of his duty, his responsibility and his spiritual commitment as a servant, being used by God, knowing his purpose and finding joy in everyday life. We do not realize just how we impact other peoples lives -even in the simplest ways... David Mann does not know just how much he touched Dannys life. During our conversation, Danny stated, "as he talked to Mr. Mann, he could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit." He aspires to be like David and Tamela Mann,"In everything that I do and say, I want people to see the very presence of God." I witnessed this anointed duo in action. In excitement and full of Joy, Gratitude, and patience they participated in many interviews. During our conversation, Mrs. Mann graciously addressed the group as a whole and "yet" she acknowledges each individual person that approached her. Mrs. Mann assured me that this was the norm, as a mother, she can be multitask. At that moment Mrs. Mann gathered Mr. Mann and posed for a picture with two youths from Brunswick, Georgia, Cedric and Deon Davis.

PAGE B 2THE STAR OCTOBER 23, 2010 The Art of Dating Community Activities By: Justin L. Mabrie, MBA Understanding Before You Release Often times we leave a relationship with a sense of unfinished business and emotional baggage. The rational side of the brain knows the better decision is to move on believing that there is hope for a more beneficial relationship to be formed in the future with someone else. The emotional side of our brain relinquishes to the other persons control as his/her alluring qualities keep a constant back and forth confusion between you and the other person. When you honestly know in your heart that you should move on and do not want the manipulation of your partner to rule over you any longer, there are four simple stages you must consider: Understand, Release, Accept, Ignore Understand what it is about the person as to why they have a hold on you. You want to avoid the ability of that person to influence your thoughts and feelings towards self-guilt. Release the findings and accept that you are going to be moving on and, thereby, doing without the attributes generated from that person. There may have been some positives involved but if the negatives out weigh, you must identify and accept the release of both positives and negatives. Next, ignore that person and their attempts to mend what has been broken. If you have fully decided that it is a 'no go,' you should give yourself a time period to just be with you and not subject yourself to deal with the interference of that person. It is not that you are being rude or childish; you are giving yourself the time necessary to cope and mend within yourself so that you can fully move on past the emotional exhaustion. At some point, and only you will know what will be a point of comfort, you will be able to associate with that person on an equal ground without the threatening feelings of defeat and confusion.Contact Justin at justinmabrie@aol.com or Justin L.Mabrie, 5000 Almeda Road, Houston, TX 77074 for insights and concerns. Ulysses W. Watkins, Jr., M.D. ANAPHYLAXIS (ALLERGIC SHOCK„LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY) GENERAL INFORMATION DEFINITION: A life-threatening allergic response to medications and many other allergy-causing substances.

Be sure your family knows how to use the kit if you have a reaction. *Always remain in your doctors office, 15 minutes after receiving any injection. Report any symptoms immediately. *Protect yourself from insect bites or sting. If you should get insect bites or stings you should consider immunization (allergy shots) as a preventative measure. WHAT TO EXPECT DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES : Laboratory skin tests to determine sensitivities. APPROPRIATE HEALTHCARE : Doctors treatments. Long-term treatment involves desensitization therapy. POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS: Without proper treatment, anaphylaxis causes shock, cardiac arrest, death. PROBABLE OUTCOME : Full recovery with prompt treatment. HOW TO TREAT GENERAL MEASURES *If you observe signs of anaphylaxis in someone and he or she stops breathing: Call or have someone call 911 (emergency) or call 0 (operator) for an ambulance or medical help. (If the victim is a child, perform lifesaving measures for 1 minute before calling for emergency help.) Begin mouth-to-mouth breathing immediately. If there is no heartbeat, give external cardiac massage. Dont stop CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) until help arrives. *Be alert to the possibility of a reaction when taking any medicine and be prepared to respond quickly if symptoms occur. If you have had a previous severe allergic reaction, always carry your anaphylaxis kit. *Wear a Medic-Alert tag that indicates your allergic condition. MEDICATION *Adrenalin by injection is the only effective immediate treatment. *Aminophylline, cortisone drugs or antihistamines, given after the adrenalin, help prevent the return of acute symptoms. ACTIVITY : Resume your normal activities as soon as symptoms improve after an attack. Stay under someones observation for 24 hours in case symptoms recur. DIET: Avoid foods to which you are allergic. CALL YOUR DOCTOR IF You have symptoms of anaphylaxis. This is an emergency!

(Oct. 20, 2010) … The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office is experiencing an increase in reports of stolen air conditioning units from the exteriors of residences, commercial properties, and industrial locations city wide, in all patrol zones. In this pattern we are seeing vacant apartments and closed businesses targeted for these thefts. Additionally, other targeted properties include locations where the thief (thieves) are not in plain view, and can be concealed while removing the unit. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office needs your help. Please report any suspicious activity, suspicious persons or people, or trucks you see during non-traditional business hours carrying air conditioning units. You can call JSO at 630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (to remain anonymous and become eligible for a reward). Obviously this is a crime that represents a significant economic impact to the people whose homes or businesses are hit,Ž said Michael Bruno, JSOs Assistant Chief of Crimes Against Property. We want the public to continue to work with the police and let us know when something just doesnt seemŽ right in your neighborhood or near your business,Ž he said. Wed also like to ask the community to assist us in helping our houses of worship, because many of those properties can go for several days with very little or no activity. So when youre driving around out there, keep an eye out around the houses of worship in your area.Ž Bruno said. Some theft prevention techniques gaining popularity include: Digital cameras mounted outside the home, business or church; GPS devices inside the unit; metal caging around the exterior of the air conditioning unit. If you would like to find out if your neighborhood (or business area) has a Watch group already in service to the community, or you are interested in starting one, please contact JSOs Community Affairs division at 630-2160. Woman crashes into St. Augustine McDonald's While suffering from unstable blood sugar, she drove her car into a St. Augustine McDonalds restaurant during the afternoon rush, police said. The driver of the car, 51-year-old Beverly Dostick, told police she was trying to park her car about 1 p.m. Friday when she went over the curb and into the south corner of the building on North Ponce De leon Boulevard. A window shattered, and a man sitting in a booth near the crash had to jump out of the way. He declined medical treatment, St. Augustine police said. A rescue crew arrived on-scene and stabilized Dosticks sugar level. She was not cited in the accident, according to police. LIQUOR STORE ROBBERY The gunman robbed a St. Johns County Publix Liquors near Mill Creek late Thursday afternoon, the Sheriff's Office said.

Safety Tips for Halloween from your Neighborhood WatchWHEN TRICK-OR-TREATING: A Parent or responsible Adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds. Remind Trickor-Treaters: o By using a flashlight, they can see and be seen by others. o Stay in a group, walk slowly and communicate where you are going. o Only trick-or-treat in well known neighborhoods at homes that have a porch light on. o Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. o If no sidewalk is available, walk at the farthest edge of the roadway facing traffic. o Never cut across yards or use alleys. o Never enter a stranger's home or car for a treat. o Obey all traffic and pedestrian regulations. o Always walk. Never run across a street. o Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks. o Remove any mask or item that will limit eyesight before crossing a street, driveway or alley. o Don't assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-orTreaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will. Never consume unwrapped food items or open beverages that may be offered.o No treats are to be eaten until they are thoroughly checked by an Adult at home. o Law Enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity. For non-emergencies please call (904) 630-0500, for emergencies please call 9-1-1. AFTER TRICK-OR-TREATING: Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Though tampering is rare, a responsible Adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items. Try to apportion treats for the days following Halloween. Although sharing is encouraged, make sure items that can cause choking (such as hard candies), are given only to those of an appropriate age.

Grambling States Frank Warren … A Stitch in TimeGrambling, LA---A Stitch in time is a sewing phrase used in needle work, embroidery, weaving. Its also attributed to a popular 90s TV show The Outer Limits. And now to Grambling States senior running back Frank Warren who has reached beyond the limits of his wildest dreams and stands on the threshold of weaving himself into a special place in Grambling football history. After a 202 yard performance against the Alcorn State Braves Warrens rushing total to date stands at 933 and he a mere 67 yards from being the first thousand yards rusher at GSU since Brad Hill went for 1, 032 in 2001. But thats just the beginningƒ They say records are made to be broken and now Warren, a potential Walter Payton Award candidate, finds himself in a position that he never imagined: Within striking distance of the Grambling State individual rushing records for most yards by a senior (1,401 Walter Dean, 1990), most yards in a season (1,417 Eric Gant, 1992) and Eric Gants all-time career rushing record of 3,795 yards. Warren is also only 258 yards away from passing Walter Payton for fifth on the Southwestern Athletic Conference career rushing leaders list. When I first got here (Grambling) people would tell me about the great Grambling running backs like Walter Dean and Eric Gant. Its really a great accomplishment just to be mentioned in the same sentence as those guys,Ž said Warren. Having already in his career been named SWAC Freshman of the Year (2007) and second team AllSWAC (2009) Warren, the consummate team player, is quick to throw the spotlight off himself. Facing records that have stood since he was one year old Warren credits his offensive line, running backs coach Shawn Gibbs and a new system for his success. Breaking records was not one of my goals, as a freshman I was just worried about seeing the field. When Coach Broadway came in he changed the style we play and it really helped me out,Ž Warren continued. I would love to break a thousand yards and now its close that would be a great accomplishment. Coach Gibbs helps keep me focused; he reminds that getting close to a thousand yards not to start doing things different. Every game my line is telling me were going to get you that record. Theyre playing great. Theyre opening a lot of holes and playing very aggressive they really want to get me those yards, they know if I get those types of yards we have a good chance at winning. When asked about Warren GSU Head Football Coach Rod Broadway replied, Frank is a special kid and Im so happy that we have him. To see him grow as a person and as a football player from his freshman year to where he is now has been a real joyƒnow people are beginning to see what we have seen for a long time. I hope he can finish up strong and make some AllAmerican teams. I think hes one of the best players in Black College Football.Ž Despite all of the hype surrounding Warrens success this season, his grid iron objectives remain the same since day one, Before I leave I would love to be a two-time Black College National Champion. I would love to be mentioned as one of Gramblings great running backs, but to be a two-time champion would be great.Ž Regardless of the numbers on the stat pages after the final whistle has blown this season, Frank Warren will always own a piece of GSU football history as the Business Management major eagerly anticipates graduation in the Spring of 2011. We all struggle to define ourselves; to live our lives with some sense of balance, with one foot in the past, and the other reaching... for an uncertain future.Ž--The Outer Limits PAGE B-4 THE STAR OCTOBER 23, 2010 SPORTS PAGE B4 C M Y K The Florida & Georgia Star Correspondent: Scott Jurrens Photographer: Joseph LorentzsonMSU Bulldogs Nip Florida Gators 10-7The undefeated Mississippi State University (MSU) Bulldogs outlasted the 22nd ranked University of Florida Gators at Florida Field in the Swamp on October 16, 2010 at 7:00 PM with the game final score of Bulldogs 10, Gators 7. The Bulldogs won the opening coin toss and elected to receive the ball first in the second half. After the Gator offense stalled on 3 plays and out, the Bulldogs received the punt and promptly moved the ball down to the Gator 14-yd line. Bulldog kicker, Sean Braucle, booted a 31-yard field goal to put the Bulldogs in the lead with 8:03 on the 1st quarter game clock. After the kick off to the Gators, the Gator offense mounts a bit of a drive then turns the ball over on an interception of a Brantley pass. The Bulldogs score a touchdown and extra point on this Gator turnover with 45 seconds left in the 1st quarter. At the end of the quarter, the score is Bulldogs 10, Gators 0. In the 2nd quarter, both teams exercised their punters with neither team getting close to the other teams red zone to attempt a field goal or touchdown. In the 3rd quarter, the Bulldogs receive the kickoff and more punts ensure. The 90,517 fans finally see a Gator score with 4:15 on the game clock on a 5-yard touchdown run by Omarius Hines. In the 4th quarter, it all came down to the final seconds of the game as Gator replacement field goal kicker, Chas Henry, attempted a 42-yard field goal to tie the game and missed. The Bulldogs took over and with a knee, ended the game with a win and the Gators first backto-back consecutive game losses since 2003. The Gators looked missing in action on defense and offense in this game. MSU ran the ball 24 times in a row at one point in the game and the Gator defense just couldnt stop the Bulldogs from gaining first downs. With at times, five Gator offensive staff signaling plays into the Gator offense (some are decoys of course to throw off the opponent), the offense struggled to get plays started without delay of game penalties, get wide and slot receivers in position and generally look inept. The Gators (4-3, 2-3 SEC) have the weekend off and face the Georgia Bulldogs (3-4, 2-3 SEC) next in Jacksonville, FL at the annual Florida/Georgia game at Everbank Field at 3:30 PM EST, televised on CBS. Both the Gators and Bulldogs share a loss this season to the MSU Bulldogs; however the Georgia Bulldogs are coming of two home wins over Tennessee and Vanderbilt and will travel this weekend to face the Kentucky Wildcats.

To make room on the roster, the club waived fourth-year safety Gerald Alexander and rookie linebacker Jacob Cutrera. Bouman, 6-2, 226, had been signed by the Jaguars on Sept. 21 and served as the backup quarterback for two games before he was released on Oct. 5. He is in his 11th NFL season and has played in 42 games with six starts with Minnesota and New Orleans. Bouman spent four weeks on the Jaguars roster in 2007 after an injury to David Garrard and also spent time in the clubs 2008 and 2009 training camps. He was signed by Baltimore prior to the 2008 season-opener and spent the entire season with the Ravens, where he dressed but did not play as the third quarterback for the final 10 weeks including the postseason. Boumans career totals include 129 of 230 passing for 1,683 yards with 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He started three games in 2001 for Minnesota and three games in 2005 with New Orleans. Ramsey, a former first-round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2002, has spent time with the Redskins (2002-05), the New York Jets (2006), Denver Broncos (200708), Tennessee Titans (2009), Detroit Lions (2009) and New Orleans Saints (2010). He spent the 2010 preseason with the Saints before he was waived in final cuts. Ramsey, 6-2, 225, has played in 37 games over eight seasons and completed 511 of 913 passes for 5,930 yards with 35 touchdowns and 30 interceptions for a 74.9 passer rating. He has posted a 10-14 record in his 24 career starts. In 2009 Ramsey had stints with the Titans and Lions but did not play in a regular season game. He was inactive as the third quarterback for one game with the Titans and was active but did not play in another game before he was released. He signed with the Lions on Dec. 26 and was inactive as the third quarterback for the final two regular season games. His last action in a regular season game came Oct. 20, 2008 as a member of the Broncos when he completed two of three passes for 19 yards before suffering a season-ending elbow injury. He opened the season as the starter for the Redskins in 2005 on Sept. 11 against Chicago but was forced to leave the game with an injury in his last start. WEBBER RUNS PAST EDWARD WATERS TO SPOIL TIGERS HOMECOMINGBy MIKE BONTS Sports Editor Webber International put a damper on Edward Waters College's homecoming Saturday with a 46-6 victory over the Tigers. The Tigers opened the scoring on an 80-yard run by RocKarius King. EWC rushed for 168 yards, but could only manage six yards in the air. QB Brandon Turman was one of seven with one interception. King finished with 115 yards on 16 carries. Chris Maxwell ran five times for 48 yards. Denton Thompsons seven tackles led the Tigers defense. Ashlon Smith had six; Matt Bates and Richard Copeland recorded five each. The Warriors jumped out to a 31-6 halftime lead that was never threatened in the second half. Andre Edwards caught a pair of touchdown passes from QB Torrance Moise of two and 18 yards. Moise also threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Rodman and Deonte Fielder closed out the scoring in the final quarter with a 22-yard touchdown run. Atwood finished the game with 103 yards on 17 carries, and Fielder added 88 yards on 12 carries. Moise completed 10-of-19 passes for 136 yards. Webber won its first game on the road and spoiled the homecoming at Raines High School. The Warriors improved their record to 5-2 on the season as the Tigers fell to 0-5. EWC now travels to North Greenville University in Tigerville, S.C. for a.2 p.m. kickoff on Saturday.

Cultural Day Festival offers a fun and festive atmosphere for all to learn about and experience the best of Sapelo Islands Gullah-Geechee culture featuring entertainment, crafts and Geechee cuisine. Visitors from across Georgia, other states and countries enjoy traditional Gullah cooking, crafts, historical tours, storytelling and musical performances. There was something for everyone this past weekend. Sapelo Island, Georgias fourth-largest barrier island. There lives a community of about 100 AfricanAmerican residents who are mainly descendants of freed slaves from Spaldings and other local plantations, with a culture unique to the Low Country. As Sapelo native Cornelia Walker Bailey writes in her essay I Am Sapelo, "We are one, bound by the spirit of an island and Bulallah the slave. Bound by high tide, fields, gossips, smoke mullet and our faith." There are no big hotels, simply small cottages and other types of low rise accommodations owned and run by the people who live on Sapelo. The general public must take a 30-minute ferry ride from the town of Meridian, about eight miles east of Darien. Information on lodging, transportation and all Sapelo Island activities can be found at the Visitor Center, located by the ferry dock in Meridian. The Florida and Georgia Star News Paper look forward to working with SICARS to highlight one of the most significant cultural assets in the U.S. and to expand and build upon the continued success of the SICARS Cultural Day Festival.

OCTOBER 23, 2010 THE STAR PAGE B-6 Area ews B6 C M Y K Jacksonville, FL: Sylvester Black serves part-time in the Law Offices of Public Defender Matt Shirk where he works with select juvenile clients who are in need of a caring, supportive adult to spend time with them in court proceedings and attorney meetings, but also outside of those confines. Mr. Black visits the young people in their homes, throws the football with them in the park, treats them to a soda at the corner store and goes to their school when asked. His dedication comes from a sincere desire to dissuade the young men who have already entered the criminal justice system from making poor choices that will keep them returning to that system as had happened to him. Mr. Black, now 51 years old, spent 27 years of his life behind bars on various convictions. Public Defender Matt Shirk knows that Mr. Black is committed to helping implement cost-effective prevention and intervention techniques which ideally saves taxpayer dollars and most importantly saves young lives. On Friday (9/24), Mr. Black participated in a graduation ceremony at Jacksonvilles City Rescue Mission marking his completion of the yearlong LifeBuilders Recovery Program. Along with 25 classmates, the graduates accomplishments were celebrated with various speeches, musical selections and sermons. The inspirational ceremony attracted hundreds of attendees and defined City Rescue Missions ongoing commitment to serving area homeless people. Sylvester Black fills a very necessary void in lives of our young clients,Ž said Shirk. He provides them a level of compassion and understanding that they likely have never had. The life experience hes had and his determination to veer young people away such a path is commendable. We are extremely proud of him for his work and on his recent graduation.Ž Among the graduation speakers was Fourth Judicial Circuit Assistant Public Defender Rob Mason (pictured, right) who is the Director of the Juvenile Unit; Mr. Mason assists Mr. Black in determining which young clients are going to receive mentoring.

PAGE B-7 THE STAR OCTOBER 23, 2010PREP RAP U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan today announced 12 charter school grants totaling $50 million for charter management organizations to replicate and expand high-quality charter schools that have demonstrated success. The Charter School Grant Program competition represents the first time the Department has specifically sought out to replicate and expand the nation's highest-performing charter management organizations. Today's grants will serve 76,000 students in 127 new and 31 expanded charter schools over the next five years. "Several high-quality charter schools across the country are making an amazing difference in our childrens' lives, especially when charters in innercity communities are performing as well, if not better, than their counterparts in much wealthier suburbs," Duncan said. "Every one of our grantees serves a student population that is at least 70% low-income and virtually all exceed the average academic performance for all students in their state." The Administration will invest more than $256 million this year to assist in the planning and implementation of public charter schools and dissemination of their successful practices through the Charter School Grants Program. In addition, the President's fiscal year 2011 budget requests a $54 million increase in the Charter School Grants Program, seeking $310 million and representing another step toward meeting the Administration's commitment to double financial support for the program. The purpose of the Charter School Grants Program, managed by the Department's Office of Innovation and Improvement, is to increase financial support for these public schools, build a better national understanding of the public charter school model and increase the number of high-quality public charter schools across the nation. More information about the Charter Schools Program is available from the Education Department's Office of Innovation and Improvement at: http://www.ed.gov/programs/charter/in dex.html. Following is a list of grantees by state. The list includes the first-year grant award amount for each grantee.

Black Violin breaks all the rules, blending the classical with the modern to create something rare, a sound that nobody has ever heard, but that everybody wants to feel. When the members of Black Violin first learned to play their signature instruments „ Wil B., the viola 14 years old and Kev Marcus, the violin at 9 years old, neither could have foreseen that it would become their livelihood, though it was already becoming their passion. The two Florida natives first met while attending the Dillard High School of Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. After graduating from high school, both Wil and Kev were granted full music scholarships to college, Florida State University and Florida International University, respectively.

The group recently released its eponymous debut album, Unleased.Ž The group continues to tour, opening for hip-hop mainstays like Fat Joe, Akon, and the Wu-Tang Clan in Prague, Dubai and South Africa.

Blacks and Hispanics

Keep Your Rights Vote NO!
.) No, it is just not Blacks and Hispanics who will lose if the
Fair District Amendment is passed in Florida, according to
Dr. Ben Chavis. Blacks and Hispanics will lose the most
because of a portion of the Supreme Court's 2009 decision
and the Voting Rights Act, said Dr. Chavis.
Congresswoman Corrine Brown says the goal of the
Voting Rights Act was to correct discriminatory acts of the
past and the legal rights of many who are a part of her dis-
Dr. BenChavis, past trict. She stressed that before 1992, the last African
president of NAACP American from Florida who served in Congress was Josiah
Walls. The Gainesville congressman lost his seat in 1876.
Congressman John Lewis agreed with Congresswoman Brown. He said that he
was arrested 40 times in a fight for voting rights. He has spent many hours in
Florida this election period to help in every way possible to prevent this state and
others who might follow, to preserve the Voting Rights Act. He joins those rep-
resentatives from Florida, and Dr. Ben Chavis, a former CEO and national presi-
dent of the NAACP to help defeat Amendments 5 & 6.
The group of leaders stated that the 15th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution
provides that the right to vote shall not be denied or abridged on the basis of race
or color. The Voting Rights Act of 1964, signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson,
was created because states were not enforcing these constitutional rights, thereby
diluting minority voting power through redistricting. They further stressed that
the Voting Rights Act requires the preservation of majority-minority districts
where the minority population is sufficiently large and geographically compact so
as to constitute a majority, the minority group is politically cohesive, and there is
evidence of racial bloc voting that defeats the opportunity of minority voters to
elect candidates of choice. All of these factors existed in 1992 when the districts
were created that allowed three African Americans in Florida to win seats in
Congress. That same federal court held that previous plans violated the Voting
Rights Act, the Equal Protection Clause and other constitutional principles. It is
believed that same factors exist today, eliminating the possibility of changing con-
gressional representatives or future representatives from being African American.
Florida's District 3 was challenged in 1996 but, defeated because of the constitu-
tion. If Amendments 5 & 6 are passed, the Voting Rights Act, which only last for
25 years anyway, will also change for states where their constitutions are amend-
ed. It is therefore imperative that Amendments 5 & 6 not pass. VOTE NO!


Singer Mario Arrested
S a Singer Mario was arrested,
according to Bossip, for attacking
his mother in their Baltimore,
Maryland apartment. The musi-
cian said that the alleged attack
occurred when his mother, who is
Singer Mario a recovering heroin addict, was
caught using drugs in their home.
She was also, according to sources, withdrawing
money from his bank account to support her habit.
Woman Shot While Driving
Through Cross Fire
According to reports, several shots were fired Friday
morning near Blanding Boulevard and 103rd. It
appeared, according to witness, that at least two people
were firing at each other when one of the bullets struck
a female who was driving a SUV on Blanding. After
the shooting, the female hit the car in front of her. It
was learned shortly that she had been shot in the head.
She was taken immediately to Shands Jacksonville
Medical Center in critical condition. One other person
involved in the accident, caused by the shooting, was
also hospitalized.
JSO said that several houses were also hit by stray
bullets but, no arrests were made and no suspects have
been identified.
One good point: A nearby business had an outside
surveillance video that was turned over to the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. It is hoped the shooters
are seen on the video.
JSO is asking for assistance from the public in getting
information to help solve this shooting incident.

Awareness
When you talk with Eric Dunlap, you
are highly motivated to get a check up,
exercise regularly and enjoy every
moment of your life.
Dunlap said he discovered ten years ago
after working out, and suffering severe
pain, that he had breast cancer. Mind
you, this was not his first clue but he did
not recognize the early sign and neither
Eric Dunlap, a did his physician.
breast cancer Exactly one year and one day prior to
survivor, being evaluated, he saw a spot of blood
on his shirt. He thought he might have hit something that
did not cause pain. The next day he saw blood again in the
same area. He did seek medical attention but the doctor
did not diagnose an illness. It was a year later that he
learned that he was on the same track of his mother and
grandmother, who too had breast cancer. His grandmoth-
er passed shortly afterwards. His mother lived ten years
before being diagnosed again two years ago. She is still
with us.
Mr. Dunlap says he asked for a beautiful wife and two
sons. He has both and he continues to love and cherish
them and at the moment, he is cancer free.
The Atlanta citizen speaks to groups nation wide about
breast cancer, reminding men and women the importance
of annual check ups. Don't wait until October to be
reminded. He can be reached at www.dunlapspeaks.com
Supreme Court Justice's Wife -
What's the Story?
Many are wondering what
caused Ginni Thomas, wife of
Savannah native, Supreme
Court Justice Clarence
Thomas, 19 years later, to call
Professor Anita Hill asking
her to apologize about her
claim of sexual harassment
against her husband. Maybe it and wife Ginni.
is because of his court reputa-
tion; maybe it is because there is rumor about her conser-
vative nonprofit organization taking money or maybe it is
because of his old girl friend, Lillian McEwan's desire to
write a book discussing his obsession with large breast and
pornography. Whatever, she made a call to Anita Hill,
asking that she apologize to the Justice. Why?

Juan Williams, Fired by NPR

Hired by Fox at $2 Million
Juan Williams has served for
many years as a news analyst
for NPR but was fired when he
stated on "The O'Reilly
Factor" Fox News Channel,
Monday, that Muslims make
him nervous when he sees
them on the same airplane as
himself, implying that Muslims
4, are terrorists.
.. NPR's CEO said his statement
Juan Williams, Network and feeling are not appropriate
News Analyst for their network. However,
Fox News apparently have a
different attitude. Wherein NPR found the statement
offensive, Fox signed Williams to a three-year contract
worth around $2 million. Williams' position with Fox will
be expanded and he will make more appearances and
become a stronger fixture in the news lineup.
Most media refers to Fox news as the "entertainment"
news network because of the way they report news and
information.

Alvin Brown, candidate for Mayor of Jacksonville, held a fundraising reception
in Jacksonville on October 19, 2010 to welcome former President Bill Clinton who
endorsed him to become the next leader of Jacksonville. The 'standing only' event
was held at the River Club.
Alvin and Mr. Clinton have known each other for years. Alvin worked as senior
official in the Clinton Administration, serving as Executive Director of the White
House Community Empowerment Board, a $4 billion initiative that focused on
investing in America's cities and rural communities to create jobs.
Brown's current position is that of Executive-in-Residence at Jacksonville
University David College of Business. He has also served as Executive Director of
the Willie Gary Foundation.
Brown said, as mayor, he will ensure that citizens work together to continue
growing our economy and building on crucial public-private sector partnerships
when it comes to our ports as well as our defense.
Attending the reception were leaders such as Congresswoman Corrine Brown
and many city leaders. Also attending was his former employer, Willie Gary. Alvin's
goal is to transform the shared dream of making Jacksonville a great place to live, to
work and to raise children into a reality for all.

Everglades Foundation Releases Economic Study
Detailing Financial Return on Investment From
Restoring America's Everglades


S-FOUN -DATION
*J~t^^^lFOUNDATION


First-of-its-Kind Economic Study on Everglades
Restoration Highlights Projected Rise in Job
Creation, Real Estate Values Among Other
Benefits


Miami Florida -- Oct 18, 2010 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- Today, the
Everglades Foundation released the results of a comprehensive analysis of the
financial return on investment generated by restoration of America's
Everglades ecosystem. The study, conducted by Mather Economics, projects
that restoration will produce an increase in economic benefits of approximate-
ly $46.5 billion that could range up to $123.9 billion based on an investment
of $11.5 billion.
"It is clear that Everglades restoration not only produces ecological
benefits, but also generates a robust economic boost to our economy. For every
dollar spent on Everglades restoration, we are getting four dollars back in the
form of higher home values, increased tourism and stronger fishing, boating
and tourism industries," said Kirk Fordham, CEO, Everglades Foundation.
"When we invest in protecting and restoring the Everglades, we are also
revving up a powerful job creation engine. Aside from the good paying jobs
in construction, engineering and the sciences that come with restoration proj-
ects, we are boosting employment in a wide range of industries."
The study shows that for every one dollar spent on Everglades restora-
tion as part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP), $4.04
will be generated in economic benefits. Projections indicate that there will be
an incremental impact on employment of about 442,644 additional jobs over
50 years. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also estimates there will be
22,966 new short- to mid-term jobs created as a result of actual restoration
projects.
"Let's think about the basic ecosystem services provided by the
Everglades as a grocery store featuring 'products' ranging from water purifica-
tion to enhanced tourism. We created six distinct aisles or divisions and a
catch-all section. For each of these categories, we conservatively estimated,
using best available data and economic methods, the increase in economic
value of a restored Everglades ecosystem," said Bobby McCormick, Ph.D.,
Mather Economics' principal investigator assigned to the project. "The bottom
line, as our analysis strongly suggests, is that the rewards of restoration far out-
weigh the economic costs."
In addition, the study shows that Everglades restoration will result in
added value to the economy of $5,129 per individual residing in the 16-coun-
ty South Florida Water Management District.
"Too often, we hear arguments that we can't afford to invest in
Everglades restoration during an economic downturn. Instead, smart policy-
makers recognize that the future of our state's economic growth depends
on protecting the Everglades and the water supply it provides to one in
three Floridians. Simply put: we can't grow our economy if we allow the
Everglades to collapse," said Fordham.
"Measuring the Economic Benefits of America's Everglades
Restoration: An Economic Evaluation of Ecosystem Services Affiliated
with the World's Largest Ecosystem," is available in its entirety at
www.evergladesfoundation.org.

and Georgia Star, and Tamela Mann


Miguel Lloyd, David and
Tamela Mann, Tracey
Lloyd and in front, Cedric
and Deon Davis of
Brunswick, GA.


When you hear the names "David Mann and wife Tamela Mann" you immediate-
ly think "Meet the Browns." Mr. Brown and his daughter, Cora.
The one day that I can truly say my feet were tired and my wonderful friends were
getting on my nerves in their attempts to convince me that I could defy the laws of
time, I found myself sitting with Mr. Brown and Cora. We did not discuss the very suc-
cessful "Meet the Browns" series on TBS, her CD and Gospel Video -THE MASTER
PLAN or Mr. Browns' GOOD OL' TIME CHURCH and Tamela's CD, GOTTA KEEP
MOVIN'.
It was a conversation that was not spoken in words, but spoken in actions. Greeted
by the "The Essence of Christian Character" of Mr. David and Mrs. Tamela Mann, I
immediately begin to recall the testimony that my friend Danny Clay shared with me.
The day he met David Mann, it was a conversation full of humor. Gradually, Mr. Mann
begins to talk about the goodness of the Lord, God's Grace and Mercy and his Faith
in God, as a believer. Mr. Mann told of his duty, his responsibility and his spiritual
commitment as a servant, being used by God, knowing his purpose and finding joy in
everyday life.
We do not realize just how we impact other people's lives -even in the simplest
ways... David Mann does not know just how much he touched Danny's life. During
our conversation, Danny stated, "as he talked to Mr. Mann, he could feel the presence
of the Holy Spirit." He aspires to be like David and Tamela Mann,- "In everything that
I do and say, I want people to see the very presence of God."
I witnessed this anointed duo in action. In excitement and full of Joy, Gratitude,
and patience they participated in many interviews. During our conversation, Mrs.
Mann graciously addressed the group as a whole and "yet" she acknowledges each
individual person that approached her. Mrs. Mann assured me that this was the norm,
as a mother, she can be multitask. At that moment Mrs. Mann gathered Mr. Mann and
posed for a picture with two youths from Brunswick, Georgia, Cedric and Deon Davis.

Did You Hear About?...

Sheriffs Office

INCREASE IN REPORTS OF STOLEN AIR CONDITIONING
UNITS
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Oct.
20, 2010) The Jacksonville
Sheriff's Office is experiencing
an increase in reports of stolen
air conditioning units from the
exteriors of residences, com-
mercial properties, and indus-
trial locations city wide, in all
patrol zones.
In this pattern we are seeing
vacant apartments and closed
businesses targeted for these
thefts. Additionally, other tar-
geted properties include loca-
-D t -c o tions where the thief (thieves)
are not in plain view, and can
be concealed while removing
the unit. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office needs your help. Please report any sus-
picious activity, suspicious persons or people, or trucks you see during non-tradi-
tional business hours carrying air conditioning units. You can call JSO at 630-0500
or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (to remain anonymous and become eligible
for a reward).
"Obviously this is a crime that represents a significant economic impact to
the people whose homes or businesses are hit," said Michael Bruno, JSO's
Assistant Chief of Crimes Against Property. "We want the public to continue to
work with the police and let us know when something just doesn't "seem" right in
your neighborhood or near your business," he said. "We'd also like to ask the com-
munity to assist us in helping our houses of worship, because many of those prop-
erties can go for several days with very little or no activity. So when you're driv-
ing around out there, keep an eye out around the houses of worship in your area."
Bruno said.
Some theft prevention techniques gaining popularity include:
Digital cameras mounted outside the home, business or church; GPS devices inside
the unit; metal caging around the exterior of the air conditioning unit.
If you would like to find out if your neighborhood (or business area) has a
Watch group already in service to the community, or you are interested in starting
one, please contact JSO's Community Affairs division at 630-2160.

MI ARIES
You'll need to exercise control.
Your creative imagination will
help you in coming up with
unique ideas. Lack of cash
might be partly to blame for
the problems at home. You
could have a tendency to
spend too much on your home
or entertainment.
g3JJ CANCER
Don't let someone you work
with put words in your
mouth. They won't get away
with it. You will communi-
cate with ease this week.
Your pilgrimage may end up
being fruitless.
Your lucky day this week will
be Tuesday.

'-ll LIBRA
A romantic dinner, followed
by a quiet evening with the
one who is enticing you,
should be most satisfying. Do
not confront situations unless
you are sure you have a good
understanding of the dilem-
ma. Do not blow situations
out of proportion. You may
find that someone you really
cared for in the past has come
back into your life.

CAPRICORN

Don't hesitate to visit
someone who hasn't been
well. Someone you live
with will get angry if you
are neglecting your duties.
Deception is likely.
Changes in your home are
apparent, and you must be
willing to bend if you
don't want to find yourself
alone.

Financial investments that deal
with joint money can be
extremely prosperous. Do not
let others exhaust you finan-
cially. Visit friends you don't
get to see that often. You've
been hurt before and could be
again if you don't play hard to
get.

kM LEO
Deception is apparent. You
need an outlet. Do not let
them in on your plans if
you want things to run
smoothly. Try not to upset
others with your plans.
Your lucky day this week
will be Monday.

AlI SCORPIO
Unique forms of entertainment
could capture your attention
and bring about a romantic
interest. You need to refrain
from being the generous one in
the group. You must use discre-
tion when it comes to lending
money or making donations.
You may be up for some
changes in your home.
I AQUARIUS

Don't turn down offers that
include sports activities or
children. Partnerships may
be plentiful. Depression
may be likely if you're
away from home. Travel
will be fun and entertain-

Woman crashes into St. Augustine McDonald's


While suffering from unstable blood sugar, she drove her car into a St.
Augustine McDonald's restaurant during the afternoon rush, police said.
The driver of the car, 51-year-old Beverly Dostick, told police she was try-
ing to park her car about 1 p.m. Friday when she went over the curb and into the
south corner of the building on North Ponce De leon Boulevard. A window shat-
tered, and a man sitting in a booth near the crash had to jump out of the way. He
declined medical treatment, St. Augustine police said.
A rescue crew arrived on-scene and stabilized Dostick's sugar level. She
was not cited in the accident, according to police.

LIQUOR STORE ROBBERY
The gunman robbed a St. Johns County Publix Liquors near Mill Creek
late Thursday afternoon, the Sheriffs Office said. The clerk told deputies that the
man came in shortly after 5 p.m. and walked around the store before brandishing
the gun. She turned over an undisclosed amount of cash and he left with the
money and whiskey.
He's described as in his 30s, with a heavy build and blonde to strawberry
blonde hair. He was wearing a brownish- to bumt-orange colored "Quick Silver"
T-shirt, blue jeans and a light green hat. He was last seen getting into a late-
model burgundy Honda four-door driving toward the Murabella subdivision.
Anyone with information can contact the St. Johns County Sheriff's
Office at (904) 824-8304 or remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a
cash reward by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 277-TIPS (8477).

Safety Tips for Halloween from your

Neighborhood Watch

WHEN TRICK-OR-TREAT-

and communicate where you are
going.
o Only trick-or-treat in well
known neighborhoods at homes
that have a porch light on.
o Remain on well-lit streets and
always use the sidewalk.
o If no sidewalk is available,
walk at the farthest edge of the
roadway facing traffic.
o Never cut across yards or use
alleys.
o Never enter a stranger's home
or car for a treat.
o Obey all traffic and pedestrian regulations.
o Always walk. Never run across a street.
o Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks.
o Remove any mask or item that will limit eyesight before crossing a street, drive-
way or alley.
o Don't assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-

Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will. Never consume
unwrapped food items or open beverages that may be offered.o No treats are to be
eaten until they are thoroughly checked by an Adult at home.
o Law Enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or
unlawful activity. For non-emergencies please call (904) 630-0500, for emergencies
please call 9-1-1.

AFTER TRICK-OR-TREATING:
Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Though tampering is
rare, a responsible Adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any
spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items.
Try to apportion treats for the days following Halloween.
Although sharing is encouraged, make sure items that can cause choking (such as
hard candies), are given only to those of an appropriate age.

lester played in his 150th game as a Jaguar


C v JAGUARS ADD TWO QBs 4
By MIKE BONTS
Sports Editor

The Jaguars signed free agent quarterbacks Todd Bouman and Patrick Ramsey. To make
room on the roster, the club waived fourth-year safety Gerald Alexander and rookie line-
backer Jacob Cutrera.
Bouman, 6-2, 226, had been signed by the Jaguars on Sept. 21 and served as the
backup quarterback for two games before he was released on Oct. 5. He is in his 11th NFL
season and has played in 42 games with six starts with Minnesota and New Orleans.
Bouman spent four weeks on the Jaguars' roster in 2007 after an injury to David Garrard
and also spent time in the club's 2008 and 2009 training camps. He was signed by
Baltimore prior to the 2008 season-opener and spent the entire season with the Ravens,
where he dressed but did not play as the third quarterback for the final 10 weeks includ-
ing the postseason.
Bouman's career totals include 129 of 230 passing for 1,683 yards with 11 touch-
downs and 11 interceptions. He started three games in 2001 for Minnesota and three
games in 2005 with New Orleans.
Ramsey, a former first-round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2002, has
spent time with the Redskins (2002-05), the New York Jets (2006), Denver Broncos (2007-
08), Tennessee Titans (2009), Detroit Lions (2009) and New Orleans Saints (2010). He
spent the 2010 preseason with the Saints before he was waived in final cuts. Ramsey, 6-2,
225, has played in 37 games over eight seasons and completed 511 of 913 passes
for 5,930 yards with 35 touchdowns and 30 interceptions for a 74.9 passer rating. He has
posted a 10-14 record in his 24 career starts.
In 2009 Ramsey had stints with the Titans and Lions but did not play in a regular
season game. He was inactive as the third quarterback for one game with the Titans and
was active but did not play in another game before he was released. He signed with the
Lions on Dec. 26 and was inactive as the third quarterback for the final two regular sea-
son games. His last action in a regular season game came Oct. 20, 2008 as a member of
the Broncos when he completed two of three passes for 19 yards before suffering a sea-
son-ending elbow injury. He opened the season as the starter for the Redskins in 2005 on
Sept. 11 against Chicago but was forced to leave the game with an injury in his last start.


Grambling State's Frank Warren

A Stitch in Time


Grambling, LA---A Stitch in time is a sewing phrase
used in needle work, embroidery, weaving. It's also
attributed to a popular 90's TV show The Outer Limits.
And now to Grambling State's senior running back
Frank Warren who has reached beyond the limits of his
wildest dreams and stands on the threshold of weaving
himself into a special place in Grambling football histo-
ry.
After a 202 yard performance against the Alcorn
State Braves Warren's rushing total to date stands at 933
and he a mere 67 yards from being the first thousand
yards rusher at GSU since Brad Hill went for 1, 032 in
2001.
But that's just the beginning...
They say records are made to be broken and now
Warren, a potential Walter Payton Award candidate,
finds himself in a position that he never imagined:
Within striking distance of the Grambling State individ-
ual rushing records for most yards by a senior (1,401
Walter Dean, 1990), most yards in a season (1,417 Eric
Gant, 1992) and Eric Gant's all-time career rushing
record of 3,795 yards. Warren is also only 258 yards
away from passing Walter Payton for fifth on the
Southwestern Athletic Conference career rushing leaders
list.
"When I first got here (Grambling) people would
tell me about the great Grambling running backs like
Walter Dean and Eric Gant. It's really a great accom-
plishment just to be mentioned in the same sentence as
those guys," said Warren.
Having already in his career been named SWAC
Freshman of the Year (2007) and second team All-


SWAC (2009) Warren, the
consummate team player, is
quick to throw the spotlight
off himself. Facing records
that have stood since he was
one year old Warren credits
his offensive line, running
backs coach Shawn Gibbs
and a new system for his suc-
cess.
"Breaking records
was not one of my goals, as a
freshman I was just worried
about seeing the field. When

Florida Gators 10-7


Omarius Hines (82)runs for only
Gator touch down vs MSU

The undefeated Mississippi State
University (MSU) Bulldogs outlasted the
22nd ranked University of Florida Gators
at Florida Field in the Swamp on October
16, 2010 at 7:00 PM with the game final
score of Bulldogs 10, Gators 7.
The Bulldogs won the opening
coin toss and elected to receive the ball
first in the second half. After the Gator
offense stalled on 3 plays and out, the
Bulldogs received the punt and promptly
moved the ball down to the Gator 14-yd
line. Bulldog kicker, Sean Braucle, boot-
ed a 31-yard field goal to put the Bulldogs
in the lead with 8:03 on the 1st quarter
game clock.
After the kick off to the Gators,
the Gator offense mounts a bit of a drive
then turns the ball over on an interception
of a Brantley pass. The Bulldogs score a
touchdown and extra point on this Gator
turnover with 45 seconds left in the 1st


Coach Broadway came in he changed the style we play
and it really helped me out," Warren continued. I would
love to break a thousand yards and now its close that
would be a great accomplishment. Coach Gibbs helps
keep me focused; he reminds that getting close to a thou-
sand yards not to start doing things different. Every
game my line is telling me we're going to get you that
record. They're playing great. They're opening a lot of
holes and playing very aggressive they really want to get
me those yards, they know if I get those types of yards
we have a good chance at winning.
When asked about Warren GSU Head Football
Coach Rod Broadway replied, "Frank is a special kid
and I'm so happy that we have him. To see him grow as
a person and as a football player from his freshman year
to where he is now has been a real joy...now people are
beginning to see what we have seen for a long time. I
hope he can finish up strong and make some All-
American teams. I think he's one of the best players in
Black College Football."
Despite all of the hype surrounding Warren's
success this season, his grid iron objectives remain the
same since day one, "Before I leave I would love to be a
two-time Black College National Champion. I would
love to be mentioned as one of Grambling's great run-
ning backs, but to be a two-time champion would be
great."
Regardless of the numbers on the stat pages after
the final whistle has blown this season, Frank Warren
will always own a piece of GSU football history as the
Business Management major eagerly anticipates gradua-
tion in the Spring of 2011.
"We all struggle to define ourselves; to live our
lives with some sense of balance, with one foot in the
past, and the other reaching... for an uncertain future."--

quarter. At the end of the quarter, the
score is Bulldogs 10, Gators 0.
In the 2nd quarter, both teams
exercised their punters with neither team
getting close to the other teams red zone
to attempt a field goal or touchdown.
In the 3rd quarter, the Bulldogs
receive the kickoff and more punts ensure.
The 90,517 fans finally see a Gator score
with 4:15 on the game clock on a 5-yard
touchdown run by Omarius Hines.
In the 4th quarter, it all came
down to the final seconds of the game as
Gator replacement field goal kicker, Chas
Henry, attempted a 42-yard field goal to
tie the game and missed. The Bulldogs
took over and with a knee, ended the
game with a win and the Gators first back-
to-back consecutive game losses since
2003.
The Gators looked missing in
action on defense and offense in this
game. MSU ran the ball 24 times in a row
at one point in the game and the Gator
defense just couldn't stop the Bulldogs
from gaining first downs.
With at times, five Gator offen-
sive staff signaling plays into the Gator
offense (some are decoys of course to
throw off the opponent), the offense strug-
gled to get plays started without delay of
game penalties, get wide and slot
receivers in position and generally look
inept.
The Gators (4-3, 2-3 SEC) have
the weekend off and face the Georgia
Bulldogs (3-4, 2-3 SEC) next in
Jacksonville, FL at the annual
Florida/Georgia game at Everbank Field
at 3:30 PM EST, televised on CBS.
Both the Gators and Bulldogs
share a loss this season to the MSU
Bulldogs; however the Georgia Bulldogs
are coming of two home wins over
Tennessee and Vanderbilt and will travel
this weekend to face the Kentucky
Wildcats.


WEBBER RUNS PAST EDWARD WATERS
TO SPOIL TIGERS'
HOMECOMING

By MIKE BONTS
Sports Editor

Webber International put a damper on Edward Waters
College's homecoming Saturday with a 46-6 victory over the
Tigers.
The Tigers opened the scoring on an 80-yard run by
RocKarius King. EWC rushed for 168 yards, but could only
manage six yards in the air. QB Brandon Turman was one of
seven with one interception.
King finished with 115 yards on 16 carries. Chris
Maxwell ran five times for 48 yards.
Denton Thompson's seven tackles led the Tigers
defense. Ashlon Smith had six; Matt Bates and Richard
Copeland recorded five each.
The Warriors jumped out to a 31-6 halftime lead that
was never threatened in the second half. Andre Edwards
caught a pair of touchdown passes from QB Torrance Moise
of two and 18 yards.
Moise also threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Jamal
Rodman and Deonte Fielder closed out the scoring in the
final quarter with a 22-yard touchdown run.
Atwood finished the game with 103 yards on 17 car-
ries, and Fielder added 88 yards on 12 carries. Moise com-
pleted 10-of-19 passes for 136 yards.
Webber won its first game on the road and spoiled
the homecoming at
Raines High School. The Warriors improved their record to
5-2 on the season as the Tigers fell to 0-5.
EWC now travels to North Greenville University in
Tigerville, S.C. for a.2 p.m. kickoff on Saturday.

From Public Defender Matt Shirk


Mr. Sylvester Black and Public Defender Matt Shirk


WE PRAYED WE MARCHED WE DIED
TO PROTECT YOUR VOTE


DR. BENJAMIN F. CHAVIS, JR, FORMER NATIONAL EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND CEO OF THE NAACP
AND A 50 YEAR VETERAN OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT IN THE UNITED STATES TODAY
EMPHASIZED, "I AM CATEGORICALLY OPPOSED TO CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS 5 AND
6 ON THE BALLOT IN THE UPCOMING ELECTIONS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA BECAUSE THESE
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS FUNDAMENTALLY VIOLATE THE VOTING RIGHTS OF ALL
FLORIDIANS, ESPECIALLY MINORITY VOTERS." "THE SO-CALLED FAIR DISTRICTS
AMENDMENTS ARE UNFAIR TO FLORIDA'S MINORITY VOTERS. WE MARCHED, BLED, AND
WENT TO JAIL TO GET THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT. WE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD IN FLORIDA
AND NOT BACKWARD TO DISMANTLE THE PROGRESS THAT WE HAVE MADE TO ENSURE THE
EQUAL VOTING RIGHTS FOR ALL"


Jacksonville, FL: Sylvester Black serves part-time in the Law Offices
of Public Defender Matt Shirk where he works with select juvenile clients
who are in need of a caring, supportive adult to spend time with them in
court proceedings and attorney meetings, but also outside of those con-
fines. Mr. Black visits the young people in their homes, throws the foot-
ball with them in the park, treats them to a soda at the corner store and goes
to their school when asked. His dedication comes from a sincere desire to
dissuade the young men who have already entered the criminal justice sys-
tem from making poor choices that will keep them returning to that system
as had happened to him. Mr. Black, now 51 years old, spent 27 years of his
life behind bars on various convictions. Public Defender Matt Shirk knows
that Mr. Black is committed to helping implement cost-effective preven-
tion and intervention techniques which ideally saves taxpayer dollars and
most importantly saves young lives.
On Friday (9/24), Mr. Black participated in a graduation ceremony at
Jacksonville's City Rescue Mission marking his completion of the year-
long LifeBuilders Recovery Program. Along with 25 classmates, the grad-
uates' accomplishments were celebrated with various speeches, musical
selections and sermons. The inspirational ceremony attracted hundreds of
attendees and defined City Rescue Mission's ongoing commitment to serv-
ing area homeless people.
"Sylvester Black fills a very necessary void in lives of our young
clients," said Shirk. "He provides them a level of compassion and under-
standing that they likely have never had. The life experience he's had and
his determination to veer young people away such a path is commendable.
We are extremely proud of him for his work and on his recent graduation."
Among the graduation speakers was Fourth Judicial Circuit Assistant
Public Defender Rob Mason (pictured, right) who is the Director of the
Juvenile Unit; Mr. Mason assists Mr. Black in determining which young
clients are going to receive mentoring. The unique role Sylvester plays in
the Public Defender Office and the local juvenile justice system was fea-
tured earlier this year in a Florida Times-Union cover story entitled 'In
them, mentor sees himself.. .but he's desperate not to' (March 1, 2010).

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne
Duncan today announced 12 charter
school grants totaling $50 million for
charter management organizations to
replicate and expand high-quality char-
ter schools that have demonstrated suc-
cess. The Charter School Grant
Program competition represents the first
time the Department has specifically
sought out to replicate and expand the
nation's highest-performing charter
management organizations. Today's
grants will serve 76,000 students in 127
new and 31 expanded charter schools
over the next five years.
"Several high-quality charter
schools across the country are making
an amazing difference in our children'
lives, especially when charters in inner-
city communities are performing as
well, if not better, than their counter-
parts in much wealthier suburbs,"
Duncan said. "Every one of our grantees
serves a student population that is at
least 70% low-income and virtually all
exceed the average academic perform-
ance for all students in their state."
The Administration will invest
more than $256 million this year to
assist in the planning and implementa-


tion of public charter schools and dis-
semination of their successful practices
through the Charter School Grants
Program. In addition, the President's fis-
cal year 2011 budget requests a $54 mil-
lion increase in the Charter School
Grants Program, seeking $310 million
and representing another step toward
meeting the Administration's commit-
ment to double financial support for the
program.
The purpose of the Charter
School Grants Program, managed by
the Department's Office of Innovation
and Improvement, is to increase finan-
cial support for these public schools,
build a better national understanding of
the public charter school model and
increase the number of high-quality
public charter schools across the nation.
More information about the
Charter Schools Program is available
from the Education Department's Office
of Innovation and Improvement at:

Florida Prepaid College
Plans Annual Open
Enrollment Begins Oct. 18
Families Have More Savings
Options

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. October 18,
2010 The Florida Prepaid College
Board begins its 2010-2011 annual
enrollment period on Monday, October

Prepaid College Plan to prepay higher
education costs at this year's plan prices
until the January 31, 2011 deadline.
This open enrollment season, plans will
include tuition and most mandatory
fees, and Florida Prepaid is introducing
a 4-Year Florida College Plan in
response to the evolving Florida
College landscape. The Florida Prepaid
College Plans continue to help families
save smartly for future college expens-
es.
"This year, we are expanding
our consumer-friendly savings choices
with the introduction of a new plan
option the 4-Year Florida College Plan
- to allow a student to obtain a bache-
lor's degree in many workforce related
areas such as teaching, nursing and
business management at one of
Florida's 28 Colleges," said Chairman
Duane Ottenstroer of the Florida
Prepaid College Board. "Our goal is to
make the plans more comprehensive
and to keep the plans relevant for col-
lege savings today, as well as less con-
fusing for Florida families."
The Florida Prepaid College
Board's plan options include:
4-Year Florida University Plan: pre-
pays tuition, registration fees, the
tuition differential fee and local fees for


120 semester hours at any of the 11 state
universities in Florida.
2 + 2 Florida Plan: prepays 60 lower

community college).
2-Year Florida College Plan (for-
merly Community College Plan): pre-
pays 60 lower division semester hours
of tuition, registration fees and local
fees at a Florida College (formerly
known as a community college).
Since 1988, families have pur-

largest and most successful prepaid plan
in the nation. One in 10 Florida children
has a prepaid college plan.
When a child is ready for col-
lege, this year's Florida Prepaid College
Plan will cover the cost of tuition and
most required fees at Florida's 11 state
universities and 28 Florida Colleges
(formerly known as community col-
leges) and can also include dormitory
housing. If the student decides to attend
a private college in Florida, out-of-state
college or technical school, the value of
the plan may be transferred to any eligi-
ble educational institution. To qualify
for a plan, the child or child's par-
ent/guardian must be a Florida resident.
Parents, grandparents, friends and even
businesses can purchase a plan.


FAMU Lyceum Artists Black Violin
Redefines Music World One String at
a Time

TALLAHAS-
SEE, Fla. -
Florida A&M
University
(FAMU)
Lyceum

Committee is
proud to pres-
ent the music
group Black
Violin, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in Lee Hall
Auditorium.
Black Violin, consisting of Wil B.
and Key Marcus, and their DJ, is redefin-
ing the music world one string at a
time, combining a daunting array of
musical styles and influences to produce
a signature sound. The two classically
trained violinists have been influenced by
Dmitri Shostakovich and Johann
Sebastian Bach to rappers Nas and Jay-Z.
Black Violin breaks all the rules, blend-
ing the classical with the modem to cre-
ate something rare, a sound that nobody
has ever heard, but that everybody wants
to feel.
When the members of Black
Violin first learned to play their signature
instruments Wil B., the viola 14 years
old and Kev Marcus, the violin at 9 years
old, neither could have foreseen that it
would become their livelihood, though it
was already becoming their passion. The
two Florida natives first met while
attending the Dillard High School of
Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
After graduating from high
school, both Wil and Kev were granted
full music scholarships to college,


Florida State University and Florida
International University, respectively. In
2004, the group joined superstar Alicia
Keys on stage at the Billboard Music
Awards. In 2005, the group was awarded
the coveted title of Apollo Legend by the
esteemed Apollo Theatre in Harlem.
Mike Shinoda, lead singer of rock
act Linkin Park, was impressed by Black
Violin's imaginative composition and
finely tuned musicianship, and invited
them along on a world tour with his
hip-hop side project, Fort Minor. In
addition to Shinoda, Black Violin has
worked with musicians as diverse as
P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent,
Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin
and the Eagles.
The group recently released
its eponymous debut album,
"Unleased." The group continues to
tour, opening for hip-hop mainstays
like Fat Joe, Akon, and the Wu-Tang
Clan in Prague, Dubai and South
Africa. The group's rising fame has
also made it a highly desired act for
celebrity events. Black Violin provid-
ed the music at Minister Louis
Farrakhan's 75th birthday and at NFL
star Santana Moss' wedding.
The auditorium is divided into
three sections: Orchestra A,
Orchestra B and Balcony C.
The sections are divided into three
areas: House Left, House Center and
House Right. Seat selections are
filled on a first-come first-served
basis. Ticket prices are as follows:
Section A tickets are $35; Section B
are $25; and Section C are $15.
Black Violin's performance is
sure to provide a rich, cultural experi-
ence for all ages.

Man Goes "TOAD-AL" at High School Reunion
BEXAR COUNTY After using Thera-Gesic on aching joints,
Tom W. attended last Friday's reunion where, according to 5 amused and
concerned classmates, he went TOAD-AL. He squatted, extended both
arms to the ground, arched his back and did his best to hop numerous times
while croaking.
When asked to explain his behavior, he painlessly replied,
"None of your dang business!" V: X
