On Christmas night of 1951, Florida Civil-Rights crusader Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, were killed (Mrs. Moore died a few days later in the hospital) by a bomb placed under their house, by members of the Ku Klux Klan. Moore founded the first branch of the NAACP in Brevard County, Florida and helped organize the statewide organization. He became the state secretary for the Florida chapter of the NAACP. The NAACP won a major victory in Florida in 1944 when its Whites-only Democratic Primary was ruled unconstitutional, and Moore began immediately to take advantage of the opportunity to increase Black political power and stepped up the organizations voter registration efforts. Largely as a result of his activities, Black voter registration increased from a miserable 5 percent in 1934 to 31 percent in 1950ƒa figure that was higher than any other southern state. November 2, 2010 will be almost 59 years from the time the Moores gave their lives for us to have the Right To Vote! December 25, 2010 will be one year shy of six decades when two little girls lost their parents because some racist thought we should NOT have the Right To Vote! I DONT THINK WE HAVE A CHOICE TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2010. I BELIEVE WE OWE IT TO HARRY AND HARRIETTE MOORE TO GET OUT AND VOTE!!! The Conservative are not trying to fool us, they have told us to our faces what they plan to do if they take back the U. S. House and Senate. They have let us know that they plan to roll back the funds for Education which will affect Our Children; and Social Security which will affect Our Mothers and Fathers; Health Care, which will affect All of Us who do not currently have health insurance; and Jobs, which will affect All of Us who do not currently have jobs or those who wish to have better jobs or the opportunity to move up. In 2008 we elected President Barack H. Obama, the first African American President. November 2, 2010 at the top of the ticket we have the opportunity to elect Kendrick Meek to the U. S. Senate. As the Senator for Florida Kendrick Meek would be the first African American elected to the Senate past the Mason Dixon Line. The whole south is watching Florida in this race. This is the half way point in President Obamas presidency and we owe it to him to give him the help he needs to enable him to keep working and succeeding the way he has for us. Contrary to what the conservatives want us to think, President Obama has been very successful during the first half of his presidency. Try and name another president who accomplished what he told us he would accomplish when he was campaigning for our vote. (See attached list of accomplishments of Obama Administration) If we dont send him the support personnel he needs we will spend the next 2 years with our mouths hanging open gasping for airƒŽoh I didnt know it was that importantƒI should have voted!Ž President Obama campaigned on Yes We CanŽ and here in Florida we all caught the fire and agreed Yes We CanŽ! Nowhere did the president say Yes I CanŽ and WE must continue to work WITH the president so that he can continue to move the progressive agenda which will benefit all of US. Harry and Harriette Moore were ordinary people. Mr. Moore taught school in the segregated public school system in Mims, Florida, eventually moving up to a Junior High Principal and then a Senior High Principal, remaining an educator until he was fired for his political activities in 1946. The Moores probably could not even dream of the number of registered African American voters in Florida today, which is 1.6 million African American and Caribbean votersƒlets make this clear, not that just live in Florida, but are registered to voteƒ1.6 MILLIONƒ and certainly they would not even think of Florida having Early Voting. Harry & Harriette Moore are the first NAACP activist to be murdered and Harry Moore has been called the first 1950s era Civil Rights Martyr. You know how we like to studyŽ history and you can rest assured the historians will look back at the 2010 elections and say what did WE as African Americans do to prevent a back slide from 2008 and a slap in the face to Harry and Harriette Moore for giving their lives in 1951. Yes we won in 2008ƒand we won BIGƒ Lets not be accused of Now Parking In Our Success! We who live in Florida have no excuse as to why we wont vote. We actually have to go out of our way not to vote. We can vote early, We can vote by mail, or we can vote the traditional election day, November 2, 2010 and take five (5) people to the polls with you!!! We cannot continue to listen to people who dont have our best interest at heart, conservative talk radio, trying to use religion to pit us against each other. We all live in the same house, unless you have a helicopter pad in your back yard or a yacht docked nearby. You cant go anywhere without me and Im too scared to go anywhere without you. Your Vote Is No Joke!!! Tony Hill State Senator District 1 Chairman, FACE Alliance … www.FACE.org PAGE A-2THE STAR OCTOBER 30, 2010 Founded In April 1951 By Eric O.

In order for our jobs to be created and saved, in order for homes to be saved, in order to keep Americans in good health, in order to keep citizens protected, in order for our children to continue receiving an education, America must invest in itself, just as companies and rich folks invest.

OCTOBER 30, 2010 THE STAR PAGE A-5 PAGE A5 C M Y K Jacksonville, FL: The challenges ex-offenders face upon re-entry, the perpetuation of a criminal class when incarceration is favored over rehabilitation in all cases and the social ills realized by one-size-fits-all prosecutions are front and center issues in Jacksonvilles inner-city neighborhoods. Those were some of the hottest topics discussed in detail during the Legal System segment at the Third Northeast Florida Accountability Forum (NO-FLAF) on Thursday October 21. Fourth Judicial Circuit Public Defender Matt Shirk served on the panel for that segment along with staff from the State Attorney Office, Jacksonville Area Legal Aid and the American Civil Liberties Union. As a returning panelist to the series of Accountability Forums organized by some of Jacksonvilles leading neighborhood activists, I would like to thank both the organizers and the attendees, said Mr. Shirk. Nothing can give me a better understanding of what my constituents are thinking than to get out and engage in discussion with them myself. There are very serious challenges facing people in our innercity, particularly in the criminal justice system, and I want to work together with all interested parties to see where we can affect needed reforms. The Forum was held Thursday evening at The Masters Touch Ministry on Jacksonvilles north side. It was the third such event held in conjunction with the Sherwood Forest/Paradise Park Neighborhood Association (SFPPNA) and the Coalition of Presidents of Community Associations. The issues discussed during the event included a segment on General Elections/Ballot Amendments featuring Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland, Economic Development/Community Issues featuring City Councilman Reginald Brown and the portion dedicated to the Legal System. Moderators for the Forum were President/Founder Eunice Barnum (pictured with Shirk) of SFPPNA and Mr. Michael Wells of the host church. Azaria Health Food founder Patria Reeves, who also serves on the NO-FLAF organizational board catered a pre-event dinner. POLITICAL NEWS We, at The Florida Star, would like to apologize to you Mr. Brown for omitting this picture of you and former President Clinton in our last issue.

PAGE A-6 THE STAR OCTOBER 30, 2010ENTERTAINMENT Dreamworks Pictures Animation has developed quite an impressive box office track record over the last several years with smash hits such as the ShrekŽ and MadagascarŽ franchises, Kung Fu PandaŽ and How To Train Your Dragon.Ž They are about to add to those successes with their latest animated offering Megamind,Ž starring via voice over Will Ferrell as the master criminal villain Megamind,Ž Brad Pitt as the good guy superhero Metro Man,Ž Tina Fay as news reporter Roxanne Ritchi,Ž Jonah Hill as Ritchis super-nerd camera man and David Cross as the villains ace companion and aid Minion.Ž Fey and Ferrell are no strangers being cast mates having served many seasons as such on NBCs Saturday Night Live.Ž Fey was a two-time Writers Guild Award writer for her SNL writing and became a fixture with the shows Weekend UpdateŽ skit. She blew the roof off of the place with her dead look-alike impersonation of Sarah Palin and won a Guest AppearanceŽ Emmy for it. Fey continued her path of success winning three more Emmys for 30 RockŽ and writing and starring in the movie Mean Girls.Ž She has compiled a list of additional awards, movies and projects too numerous to name including writing a book that is due out next year. Ferrell likewise has a rich SNL career background and went on to star in mega box office films such as The Other Guys,Ž ŽStep Brothers,Ž Talladega NightsŽ and others. The Irvine, California native graduated from U.S.C. with a degree in sports information. After working as a sports announcer for a local cable channel, he enrolled in acting and comedy classes and after one year got invited to join the famed Groundlings comedy/Improve group where he was discovered for SNL. When asked to describe his position as the front and centered character not only on the posters and all artwork but in relation to the cast, Ferrell was quick to say, I dont really consider myself front and center of this fine cast. I really havent done a lot of this stuff before so its just exciting to get to work on a Jeffery Katzenberg movie. I felt so original. To be in a film with this cast is probably the most exciting part in life for me.Ž Does Ferrell share any actual real life traits with the Megamind character he plays? He laughs and quips, I have a lot of tight leather pants that I keep in a vault. I dont wear them. I just keep them there." In the movie Roxanne the reporter ends up falling for Megamind would Fey do something similar in real life? She too laughs saying, I think I would go for Megamind because hes very smart and I really do find the purple undertones of his blue skin very attractive. I really do. I think he has beautiful, beautiful skin and hes smaller than me. I like that. I can physically dominate him.Ž Everyone has had some type of enemy or nemesis related person in their life. Who was that person or persons for Fey? Staying in joke mode, she responds, I dont really have a nemesis but a series of hundreds of small enemies that fuel me. Everyone I meet I assume is out to get me and that fuels my fire on a daily basis.Ž Given the fact that Fey has played a reporter for most of her career, has that become a stereotype that he enjoys or would like to shake in the future? Fey gives a quick comedic jab, I am one of Americas foremost fake reporters and Im going to have a fake show on CNN.Ž Then getting back to the film she becomes serious; I play this Lois Lane type of character and I really like this story. Shes a modern version of that. Shes active and intelligent.Ž Finally, has the ghost of Sara Palin stopped haunting her from those famous SNL skits? Fey reacts, Ghosts? That would be terrifying! I dont think it was a ghost. That was the luckiest thing that ever happened to me. Im going to milk that. Im going to be doing that, God willing, when Im 70 years old. Ill be doing that at an auto show.Ž Birthday Wishes: Happy B-Day wishes go out to foxy actress Nia Long who celebrates the big 4-0 on Saturday, October 30th. Books: Business woman, journalist, former stand-up comic and best selling author Sabrina Lamb has a new (Strebor/Atria) published book out titled A Kettle Of VulturesƒLeft Beak Marks on My Forehead.Ž Gold records singer and Hollywood socialite Norwood Young hosted a book release party last weekend for his newly released book titled Getting Back To My Me.Ž Young is famous for his legendary, elaborately staged and jamin parties. This event held no exceptions. Young converted an art deco building on the famed Wilshire Bl. Strip into a 1940s style club. Mouth watering hors d ouveurs and sparkling cocktails were the order of the evening. The host performed a full live show himself which was followed by suave after party. The place was packed with celebs, friends and well wishers. Fashion: LA Fashion Week kicked off in style with the Destination 1610 Fashion Show and The JM Magazine Lingerie Cover Release Mixer hosted by sexy model Suelyn. Awards: The 2010 Soul Train Awards Show will take place Wed., Nov., 10, 2010 at The Cobb Energy Performance Arts Centre in Atlanta, GA. More show and broadcast info is forthcoming. Movies: Megamind; DreamWorks Animation SKG presents a PDI/DreamWorks Production. Paramount Pictures. Starring Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and David Cross. Directed by Tom McGrath. Written by Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. Produced by Lara Breay and Denise Nolan Cascino. Two alien toddlers from different planets are shot into space towards earth. One grows up to do good and the other ends up to be bad. Because they both have super powers on earth, they battle each other. Megamind is an evil vs. good animated, 3-D movie with a slightly different twist. The children will love it and a mega box office should be the result. Hereafter; Warner Bros. Pictures. Starring Matt Damon, Jenifer Lewis, Cecile De France, Jay Mohr, Bryce Dallas Howard and George McLaren. Directed by Clint Eastwood. Written by Peter Morgan. Produced by Tim Moore, Peter Morgan and Frank Marshall. George (Damon) has a gift to contact people on the other side. He comes into contact with Marcus (McLaren), a British kid who lost his twin brother and Marie (De France), a French News Anchor who had a near death experience when she almost drowned during the Indian Ocean tsunami that hit Thailand. The three come together in a rather boring manner. Save this one for cable re-runs or Netflex when you cant sleep. Hit me up at feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net Study, Observe and Win!

OCTOBER 30, 2010 THE STAR PAGE A-7 I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it. We were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant? Keeping Businesses Open We “gured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line. Instead, they asked us if we could serve food to the workers, engineers, scientists, and local residents they had hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we werent the only ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have kept businesses up and down the Gulf open and its still making a difference. Open for Business BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurants open six days a week.

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed. Restoring Gulf Communities We cant undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been working with impacted communities since day one. Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to peoples needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping. Restoring The Economy BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners, helping to make them whole. More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this will be paid by taxpayers. BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches. Restoring The Environment Were going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we nd it. Teams will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast. And weve dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage. Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we havent always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do everything we can to make this right. I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, shermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.

Mabrie, MBA An Argument Today is a Question for Tomorrow There is often an intrinsic need to handle issues as they may arise. Many argue that the more time an issue remains unsettled, the increased probability that the issue will fester and worsen. If there is doubt in your response, uneasiness with your thoughts, or apprehension of your intent for disagreement then your thoughts should remain unto yourself. You do not want to allow opportunity for misinterpretation or be responsible for adding insipid thoughts that distract from the issue of concern. Clarity and honest representation should be the goals when presenting your train of thinking. Not only is it unfair to you to misrepresent your thoughts but it is unfair to burden your partner with multiple explanations and unpleasant conversations solely because you decided to haphazardly discuss your thoughts before you truly understood your stance and feelings surrounding them. It is appropriate to take a minimum of a nights rest to collect your thoughts on the subject at hand. It may initially appear that you are avoiding addressing the issue, but you must allow your intuition to guide you to the right time for discussion. If an explanation of your conversation prevention is necessary then allow your partner the courtesy because your purpose is not to confuse them but rather your final goal is to provide him or her with honest thoughts worth addressing. By removing yourself from imbalanced thoughts & feelings and placing yourself in a peaceful mindset, you prevent further damage that could be had in the initial moment through the exchange of defensive speech and negative energy. Once you have regrouped, each of you will have a greater appreciation for the content of the message you want to share. More value will be added to each persons thought because you are now both credited with having time to truly decipher how you want to present your side of the disparity. Disagreements are usually heightened due to the selfish desire to win the debate. After moments away from each other, you each have a greater goal to your message that will still be true to your thoughts but it will lighten the aggressive defensive tone and verbage. Keep in mind that all thoughts are not worth addressing if they are not related to the current topic / issue. It will only confuse interpretations to provide an abundance of unrelated thoughts. Such thoughts can be discussed at a later time; now your responsibility is to bring closure to unanswered positions on the discussion at hand. Remember: Time has potential to provide worth. Dont discredit valued thoughts.Contact Justin at justinmabrie@aol.com or Justin L.Mabrie, 5000 Almeda Road, Houston, TX 77074 for insights and concerns. Ulysses W.

They are similar to milk curds, but they dont wipe off. *Patches are not painful unless they are rubbed off. Then they leave small painful ulcers. *The mouth is dry. CAUSES: A fungus called Candida albicans. It is usually present in small numbers in the mouth, but certain factors may cause it to multiply out of control: *Treatment with antibiotics. This may upset the natural balance of organ isms in the mouth and allow thrush to develop. *Birth, Newborns may acquire the infection during passage through the birth canal, especially if the mother has a vaginal yeast infection. Thrush appears within hours or up to 7 days after birth. *Aging. Older persons develop thrush because of lower natural resist ance. RISK INCREASES WITH: *Poor nutrition. *Illness that has lowered resistance. *HIV infection (thrush in adults is part of the criteria for diagnosis). *Diabetes. *Irritation from dentures. *Immunosuppression due to illness or drugs. *Chronic use of steroid medication (oral or inhaled).

WHAT TO EXPECT DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES: *Your own observation of symptoms. *Medical history and physical exam by a doctor. *Scraping of the plaque and material examined under a microscope. APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE: *Self-care. *Doctors treatment if self-care is not successful. *Treatment is aimed at improving the underlying condition that predispos es the patient to the infection and relieving the symptoms of thrust. POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS: Can spread to vagina, skin, larynx, gastrointestinal tract or respiratory system PROBABLE OUTCOME: Treatment usually clears this infection in 3 days. It is not dangerous or serious, but it has a tendency to recur. HOW TO TREAT GENERAL MEASURES: If an infant has the infection, boil bottles nipples separately, for 20 minutes before final sterilization. MEDICATION: *A dilution of hydrogen peroxide as a mouth rinse will soothe the discom fort. *Your doctor may prescribe: A throat lozenge of clotrimazole dissolved in the mouth 5 times a day for 14 days. Nystatin suspension to be applied to the lesions. Oral ketoconazole for more sever disorder. *Anticandidal creams to be applied under dentures or at the corners of the mouth. ACTIVITIES: No restrictions. DIET: No changes in infants.

Criminal Defense Experts Discuss Wrongful ConvictionsPublic Defender Shirk organizes, moderates discussion for FCSL Alumni Day CLE session Jacksonville, FL: Persons wrongfully convicted of crimes might account for as many as 20,000 of the presently incarcerated inmates in the American correctional system, and statistics show that number could be even higher than the 1% of the current prison population. The reason behind this injustice was the focus of a two-hour panel discussion on Friday organized and moderated by Fourth Judicial Circuit Public Defender Matt Shirk for Florida Coastal School of Law Alumni Day. The panelists for Exploring Innocence; Discussion and Examination of Florida Wrongful Convictions included experts in Florida criminal law; 2nd Judicial Circuit Public Defender Nancy Daniels, Director Quentin Till of the 4th Judicial Circuit PD Homicide Unit, FCSL Professor Joanmarie Davoli and Jacksonville attorney Hank Coxe. Background: A national effort began in 1992 called the Innocence Project which would research the growing problem of wrongful convictions across the country. Since then several states have launched parallel efforts. Several well publicized incidents of prisoners later found innocent have occurred in Florida and in 2010, with legislative backing, The Innocence Commission was formed. The 23 member panel has begun thoroughly considering the contributing factors that result in wrongful convictions and in time will make recommendations for necessary reforms. The Honorable Ms. Daniels and Mr. Coxe who participated in the FCSL panel Friday also serve on The Innocence Commission. Criminal law practitioners are keenly interested in precedents set in cases that have resulted in a wrongful conviction,Ž said Mr. Shirk. We organized the panel discussion on this issue because there have been too many instances in Florida where juries have found the wrong person guilty. The experts who served on our panel each have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of criminal law and continue to work aggressively on legal cases where they can identify potential injustices and ultimately set new precedents.Ž Roughly 80 criminal law practitioners attended the panel discussion, many of whom are FCSL alums. Among the many factors respecting wrongful convictions that were examined by the panel were; mistaken identification, existence of DNA evidence and ineffective counsel. Other topics that arose included; the Terrance Graham decision (barring juveniles from receiving life sentences), the death penalty and the importance of pro bono work. Attendees were treated to perspectives from the legal experts on innocence and a variety of the tangential issues. Notable quotes from members of the panel: Public Defender Nancy Daniels discussing solutions to problems that repeatedly have lead to wrongful convictions; End blind administration of witness identification lineups, look at prosecutors mistakes and impose sanctions, regulate all testifying forensics experts, demand all confessions be recorded … those are some good first steps.Ž PA Hank Coxe stressed the importance of defense attorneys committing to their clients; You just have to make up your mind that if youre going to be in this business you have to do the best job that you can.Ž Discussion of Capital punishment prompted Assistant Public Defender and Homicide Unit Director Quentin Till to say; My biggest concern is counsel who doesnt have his heart in death penalty cases … youve got to keep up with the law.Ž Professor Joanmarie Davoli, who previously served as a public defender in another state noted; It feels good not to be just another cog in a conviction machine.Ž WANTEDSuspect #1Black female, 58Ž510Ž, 180 pounds, brown eyes, 25-30 years old, black sweat pants, blue hooded jacket, knit hat, armed with a black semi-automatic pistol Suspect #2Black female, 54Ž55Ž, 180 pounds, hazel eyes (possibly contacts), dark pants, blue hooded top, armed with a black semi-automatic pistol and a stun gun On October 22, 2010 at 11:12 a.m. On October 22, 2010, at 11:12 a.m., police were dispatched to 2485 W. Shelby Creek Road in regards to a home invasion robbery. I met with the victim, Ms. Tran, who stated that she had just opened the garage door to her residence and observed two unknown black females (suspects) walking south on the sidewalk in front of her residence. She further stated the two suspects then approached her as she was about to get into her vehicle, that was parked inside the garage, and both suspects pointed a black semi automatic style handgun at her. She stated the two suspects then forced her at gunpoint to go inside the residence. At that time they demanded money and physically assaulted her. She further advised the suspects then tied both of her wrists together with an electrical cord from a hair straightener and then tied her ankles together with another electrical cord from another device. Anyone with any information about the identity or whereabouts of these suspects is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office at 904-630-0500 or email us at JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org.

PAGE B-8 OCTOBER 30, 2010PREP RAP PREP RAP THE STAR BOARD APPROVES NIGHT SCHOOLBy ERIKA CAPEK The Brunswick NewsGlynn County school board members approved a proposed night high school at their meeting Tuesday, though only under certain conditions. "If we don't get 125 students, then we're not going to do it," said Millard Allen, chairman of the school board. "We have to put a stake in the ground." The program must be financially self-sustaining. The seven-member board voted 6-1 in favor of the night school, called Coastal Education High School. Ruby Robinson cast the lone dissenting vote. The program is expected to begin in January and will be housed at the Golden Isles Career Academy, 4404 Glynco Parkway. Program director Rebecca Royal revised the proposed program's budget Monday after school officials found out that a local fair share contribution a percentage determined by the state that the district is required to add to the budget was not taken into account. Because of that change, the board would have had to ante up $122,537, in a worst-case scenario. Royal presented a new budget to the Board of Education Finance Committee Tuesday, which met before the regular meeting. Royal cut the number of part-time teachers who would be needed on average per night, reducing the number from six to three-and-a-half, and recommended other cost-saving measures. There can be up to 18 students for every teacher. Based on the new numbers presented Tuesday, the night school would have a surplus of $29,628. Although there have to be 125 students enrolled, Royal said the average daily attendance would be anywhere from 30 to 50 pupils. As that number fluctuated, the number of needed staff would fluctuate. "I feel confident it will take care of itself," Royal said about the program. "You're going to at least break even, if not more." Royal said 80 students have already signed letters of intent to enroll and feels confident she will hit the goal of 125 registered students. "I do not have any concerns whatsoever with the 125 students," Royal said. Officials said the key to making sure the program has a zero-dollar local investment will be to balance the number of staff with the number of students present at any given time. Board members were still concerned about the number of changes in the budget that have taken place just within the last week, along with the number of unanswered questions. "There sounds like there is a lot of stuff to be looked at before we can move forward," Robinson said. Officials could not give any absolute figures Tuesday because they said the program's expenses will depend on the enrollment number. The school will operate from to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday. It will be for students under 21 who have dropped out of school and want to return and earn a Georgia high school diploma.

lDEItAIE UUK VU1ES IU THAKKY 1. AND ARKIETTE 11IV1UUKRE WHU
GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR US TO HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE
On Christmas night of 1951, Florida Civil-Rights crusader Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, were killed
(Mrs. Moore died a few days later in the hospital) by a bomb placed under their house, by members of the Ku
Klux Klan. Moore founded the first branch of the NAACP in Brevard County, Florida and helped organize the
statewide organization. He became the state secretary for the Florida chapter of the NAACP. The NAACP won
a major victory in Florida in 1944 when its Whites-only Democratic Primary was ruled unconstitutional, and
Moore began immediately to take advantage of the opportunity to increase Black political power and stepped up
the organizations voter registration efforts. Largely as a result of his activities, Black voter registration increased
from a miserable 5 percent in 1934 to 31 percent in 1950...a figure that was higher than any other southern state.
November 2, 2010 will be almost 59 years from the time the Moore's gave their lives for us to have the Right
To Vote! December 25, 2010 will be one year shy of six decades when two little girls lost their parents because
some racist thought we should NOT have the Right To Vote!
I DON'T THINK WE HAVE A CHOICE TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2010.1 I BELIEVE WE OWE IT TO
HARRY AND HARRIETTE MOORE TO GET OUT AND VOTE!!!
The Conservative are not trying to fool us, they have told us to our faces what they plan to do if they take back
the U. S. House and Senate. They have let us know that they plan to roll back the funds for Education which will
affect Our Children; and Social Security which will affect Our Mothers and Fathers; Health Care, which will
affect All of Us who do not currently have health insurance; and Jobs, which will affect All of Us who do not cur-
rently have jobs or those who wish to have better jobs or the opportunity to move up.
In 2008 we elected President Barack H. Obama, the first African American President. November 2, 2010 at the
top of the ticket we have the opportunity to elect Kendrick Meek to the U. S. Senate. As the Senator for Florida
Kendrick Meek would be the first African American elected to the Senate past the Mason Dixon Line. The whole
south is watching Florida in this race. This is the half way point in President Obama's presidency and we owe it
to him to give him the help he needs to enable him to keep working and succeeding the way he has for us.
Contrary to what the conservatives want us to think, President Obama has been very successful during the first
half of his presidency. Try and name another president who accomplished what he told us he would accomplish
when he was campaigning for our vote. (See attached list of accomplishments of Obama Administration)
If we don't send him the support personnel he needs we will spend the next 2 years with our mouths hanging
open gasping for air..."oh I didn't know it was that important...I should have voted!"
President Obama campaigned on "Yes We Can" and here in Florida we all caught the fire and agreed "Yes We
Can"! Nowhere did the president say "Yes I Can" and WE must continue to work WITH the president so that he
can continue to move the progressive agenda which will benefit all of US.
Harry and Harriette Moore were ordinary people. Mr. Moore taught school in the segregated public school sys-
tem in Mims, Florida, eventually moving up to a Junior High Principal and then a Senior High Principal, remain-
ing an educator until he was fired for his political activities in 1946. The Moore's probably could not even dream
of the number of registered African American voters in Florida today, which is 1.6 million African American and
Caribbean voters.. .let's make this clear, not that just live in Florida, but are registered to vote... 1.6 MILLION...
and certainly they would not even think of Florida having Early Voting. Harry & Harriette Moore are the first
NAACP activist to be murdered and Harry Moore has been called the first 1950's era Civil Rights Martyr.
You know how we like to "study" history and you can rest assured the historians will look back at the 2010 elec-
tions and say what did WE as African Americans do to prevent a back slide from
2008 and a slap in the face to Harry and Harriette Moore for giving their lives in 1951.
a t a Yes we won in 2008.. .and we won BIG... Let's not be accused of Now Parking In
Our Success!
g T a We who live in Florida have no excuse as to why we won't vote. We actually have
to go out of our way not to vote. We can vote early, We can vote by mail, or we can
vote the traditional election day, November 2, 2010 and take five (5) people to the
polls with you!!!


We cannot continue to listen to people who don't have our best interest at heart, con-
servative talk radio, trying to use religion to pit us against each other.
We all live in the same house, unless you have a helicopter pad in your back yard or
a yacht docked nearby. You can't go anywhere without me and I'm too scared to go
anywhere without you.
Your Vote Is No Joke!!!

Chairman, FACE Alliance www.FACE.org

It's just that simple
Don't like Democrats or Obama? That's fine, but if you don't vote or vote for a
Republican, you'll see a decrease in the economic growth for the low and middle
class. It's just that simple.
Don't like Democrats or Obama? That's fine. Either don't vote or vote for a
Republican, and see women go back to unequal pay. It's just that simple.
In order for our jobs to be created and saved, in order for homes to be saved, in
order to keep Americans in good health, in order to keep citizens protected, in order
for our children to continue receiving an education, America must invest in itself,
just as companies and rich folks invest.
You may think progress is too slow, but if you don't vote, or vote Republican, you'll
see who really makes progress. It won't be you. It will be the corporations and the
richest two percent of Americans. It's just that simple.
It's just that simple. VOTE

POLITICAL NEWS


We, at The Florida Star, would like to apologize to you Mr. Brown for omitting
this picture of you and former President Clinton in our last issue.
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.


Jacksonville, FL: The challenges ex-offenders face upon re-entry, the perpetua-
tion of a criminal class when incarceration is favored over rehabilitation in all cases
and the social ills realized by one-size-fits-all prosecutions are front and center issues
in Jacksonville's inner-city neighborhoods. Those were some of the hottest topics
discussed in detail during the 'Legal System' segment at the Third Northeast Florida
Accountability Forum (NO-FLAF) on Thursday October 21. Fourth Judicial Circuit
Public Defender Matt Shirk served on the panel for that segment along with staff
from the State Attorney Office, Jacksonville Area Legal Aid and the American Civil
Liberties Union.
"As a returning panelist to the series of Accountability Forums organized by
some of Jacksonville's leading neighborhood activists, I would like to thank both the
organizers and the attendees," said Mr. Shirk. "Nothing can give me a better under-
standing of what my constituents are thinking than to get out and engage in discus-
sion with them myself. There are very serious challenges facing people in our inner-
city, particularly in the criminal justice system, and I want to work together with all
interested parties to see where we can affect needed reforms."
The Forum was held Thursday evening at The Master's Touch Ministry on
Jacksonville's north side. It was the third such event held in conjunction with the
Sherwood Forest/Paradise Park Neighborhood Association (SFPPNA) and the
Coalition of Presidents of Community Associations. The issues discussed during the
event included a segment on General Elections/Ballot Amendments featuring
Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland, Economic Development/Community Issues
featuring City Councilman Reginald Brown and the portion dedicated to the Legal
System. Moderators for the Forum were President/Founder Eunice Barnum (pic-
tured with Shirk) of SFPPNA and Mr. Michael Wells of the host church.
Azaria Health Food founder Patria Reeves, who also serves on the NO-FLAF orga-
nizational board catered a pre-event dinner.

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down, we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA

I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it. We
were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make
things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line. Instead, they asked us if
we could serve food to the workers, engineers, scientists, and local residents they had
hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we weren't the only ones.
They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have kept
businesses up and down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurant's open six
days a week. Customers are filling our restaurant again and we think it's a good time to
come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please think of us
when planning your next vacation. We're still here and while it's been tough, we are still
cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when
you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward to seeing you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

observed two unknown black females
(suspects) walking south on the side-
walk in front of her residence. She fur-
ther stated the two suspects then
approached her as she was about to get
into her vehicle, that was parked inside
the garage, and both suspects pointed a

residence. At that time they demanded
money and physically assaulted her.

electrical cord from a hair straightener and
then tied her ankles together with another electrical cord from another device.

ninal Defense Experts Discuss Wrongful Convictions
der Shirk organizes, moderates discussion for FCSL Alumni Day CLE session


Jacksonville, FL: Persons wrongfully convicted of crimes might
account for as many as 20,000 of the presently incarcerated
inmates in the American correctional system, and statistics show
that number could be even higher than the 1% of the current
prison population. The reason behind this injustice was the focus
g oof a two-hour panel discussion on Friday organized and moderat-
ed by Fourth Judicial Circuit Public Defender Matt Shirk for
Florida Coastal School of Law Alumni Day. The panelists for
Exploring Innocence; Discussion and Examination of Florida
Wrongful Convictions included experts in Florida criminal law; 2nd
Judicial Circuit Public Defender Nancy Daniels, Director Quentin
Till of the 4th Judicial Circuit PD Homicide Unit, FCSL Professor
Joanmarie Davoli and Jacksonville attorney Hank Coxe.
Background: A national effort began in 1992 called the
Innocence Project which would research the growing problem of
wrongful convictions across the country. Since then several states
have launched parallel efforts. Several well publicized incidents of
prisoners later found innocent have occurred in Florida and in 2010,
with legislative backing, The Innocence Commission was formed. The
23 member panel has begun thoroughly considering the contributing factors that result in wrongful convic-
tions and in time will make recommendations for necessary reforms. The Honorable Ms. Daniels and Mr.
Coxe who participated in the FCSL panel Friday also serve on The Innocence Commission.
"Criminal law practitioners are keenly interested in precedents set in cases that have resulted in a
wrongful conviction," said Mr. Shirk. "We organized the panel discussion on this issue because there have
been too many instances in Florida where juries have found the wrong person guilty. The experts who served
on our panel each have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of criminal law and continue to work
aggressively on legal cases where they can identify potential injustices and ultimately set new precedents."
Roughly 80 criminal law practitioners attended the panel discussion, many of whom are FCSL alums.
Among the many factors respecting wrongful convictions that were examined by the panel were; mistaken
identification, existence of DNA evidence and ineffective counsel. Other topics that arose included; the
Terrance Graham decision (barring juveniles from receiving life sentences), the death penalty and the impor-
tance of pro bono work. Attendees were treated to perspectives from the legal experts on innocence and a
variety of the tangential issues.
Notable quotes from members of the panel:
Public Defender Nancy Daniels discussing solutions to problems that repeatedly have lead to wrong-
ful convictions; "End blind administration of witness identification lineups, look at prosecutors' mistakes
and impose sanctions, regulate all testifying forensics experts, demand all confessions be recorded those
are some good first steps."
PA Hank Coxe stressed the importance of defense attorneys committing to their clients; "You just
have to make up your mind that if you're going to be in this business you have to do the best job that you
can."
Discussion of Capital punishment prompted Assistant Public Defender and Homicide Unit Director
Quentin Till to say; "My biggest concern is counsel who doesn't have his heart in death penalty cases -
you've got to keep up with the law."
Professor Joanmarie Davoli, who previously served as a public defender in another state noted; "It feels good
not to be just another cog in a conviction machine."
