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!

Fox News apparently have a
different attitude. Wherein NPR found the statement
offensive, Fox signed Williams to a three-year contract

be expanded and he will make more appearances and
become a stronger fixture in the news lineup.

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.

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
"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.

Restoration: An Economic Evaluation of Ecosystem Services Affiliated

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
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
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?...
INCREASE IN REPORTS OF STOLEN AIR CONDITIONING
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
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."
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 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

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

lester played in his 150th game as a Jaguar
C v JAGUARS ADD TWO QBs 4
By MIKE BONTS
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.

The undefeated Mississippi State

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
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

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

touchdown run by Omarius Hines.
In the 4th quarter, it all came
down to the final seconds of the game as

The Gators looked missing in
action on defense and offense in this
game. MSU ran the ball 24 times in a row

Webber International put a damper on Edward Waters
College's homecoming Saturday with a 46-6 victory over the
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

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

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.

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
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.

Charter Schools Program is available

Florida Prepaid College
Plans Annual Open
Enrollment Begins Oct. 18
Families Have More Savings
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. October 18,
2010 The Florida Prepaid College
Board begins its 2010-2011 annual
enrollment period on Monday, October
18, which means parents can purchase a
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-
"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
division semester hours of tuition, regis-
tration fees and local fees at a Florida
College (formerly known as a commu-
nity college) and 60 undergraduate
semester hours of tuition, registration
fees, tuition differential fee and local
fees at a Florida state university.
4-Year Florida College Plan: pre-
pays the tuition, registration fees and
local fees for 60 lower division as well
as 60 upper division semester hours at a
Florida College (formerly known as a
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-
chased more than 1.4 million Florida
Prepaid College Plans, making it the
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
SEE, Fla. -
proud to pres-
ent the music
Violin, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in Lee Hall
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
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.
