Toni Morison,a Pultizer Prize author and author of Beloved, was inducted into Frances celebrated U. S. novelist elite Legion of Honor society. Frederic Mitterrand, Frances minister of culture, pinned a red and goal medal onto Ms. Morrisons jacket as many photographers took pictures. He called her the greatest American novelist of her time. The minister added, I want to tell you that you incarnate whats most beautiful about America... (that) which gives a black child, born during segregation into a modest family in a medium-sized Ohio city an exceptional destiny. He continued, You were the first woman writer to tell the painful history of Afro-Americans. I am very moved because I think its v ery special to be with you and to tell you how much we admire you and we love you... Youre beloved. The book, Beloved later became a play featuring Oprah Winfrey. America will witness its first ship to be named after an African American. The USS Gravely, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, will be commissioned on November 20, 2010 in Wilmington, North Carolina. It will be the first U. S. Navy ship to be named in honor of a Black commissioned Naval officer. Vice Admiral Samuel Lee Gravely, Jr. was the first African-American to serve aboard a fighting ship as an officer, the first to command a U.S. Navy ship, the first to serve as a fleet commander and the first to become an admiral. Vice Admiral Gravelys Naval career lasted for 38 years. Born in 1922, he enlisted in the Naval Reserves in 1942 and was recalled to active duty in 1949. His personal motto was: Education, motivation and perseverance are a formula for success. Mrs. Alma Bernice Clark Gravely, his widow, is the sponsor for the ship. The Vice Admiral died in 2004. by: Lonzie Leath, The Florida StarCan we now brag that Florida understands the power and value of a woman? In 1992, Corrine Brown was elected to serve in the U. S. Congress and was again re-elected Tuesday to add another four years to her 18 years, already served. You dont have to ask why, because everybody knows that Corrine delivers. Now Florida can boast of another trailblazer, Jennifer Carroll who presently serves as a Florida State Representative and come January, she will take the seat of Floridas Lieutenant Governor another first for Florida. Voting was not easy around the state, even though it appeared to be but one would say it was not easy, using Duval County as an example of was displayed all around America. People did not go to vote, especially members of the JACKSONVILLE, FLBishop Tom Diamond had an eventful Sunday, October 31 when Congresswoman Brown, candidate for Governor of Florida, Alex Sink and State Representative Audrey Gibson visited his church and joined in fellowship. Bishop Diamonds sermon was: How to Stay Calm in the Storm. His message was strong and moving. After his dynamic sermon, the bishop stopped and took pictures with his special guest. No one even thought that the pictures taken would be his last pictures. Bishop Tom E. Diamond, Senior Pastor of Abyssinia Missionary Baptist Church died Monday of sudden heart failure. He was 67. Bishop Diamond served as Pastor of the 2000 member church for the past 26 years. Born in Perry, Bishop Diamond was reared in Lake Wales. He received a bachelor's degree in English from Florida Memorial College. He received his master of divinity degree from Colgate Rochester (N.Y.) Divinity School and his doctorate of ministry degree from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Ga. His first pastorate was in 1975 at St. Peter's Missionary Baptist Church in Gifford, Fla., before accepting the pastorate at Abyssinia here in 1984, he was pastor of Mount Bethel Missionary Some people say, whats love got to do with it? but apparently there is a catch. For the past five years, Tiger Woods has been the Number one golfer in the world. However, since his many marital problems, he has not won a game. Last week, he became Number two, behind Englands Lee Westwood. Tiger has not won a game this year. Behind Woods are Martin Kaymer, Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker, as the five top golf players. His next tournament which is the HSBC Champions tournament will find him facing Mickelson and Kaymer, so, will he move up or down? Okay Tiger! Shannon Tavarez died this week from acute myeloid leukemia. She was 11-years-old. Tavarez was a Broadway star and made her Broadway debut in the Lion King in 2009 after having an audition at the Apollo. Shannon received a lot of support from stars such as Rihanna, Beyonce and 50 Cents but could not hold on. She learned last April of her sickness and received an umbilical cord blood transplant as an alternative to a bone morrow transplant in New York. When she learned of her illness, she said, Why me? She went through extensive chemotherapy. 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"HNQTKFCU"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...

If President Barack Obama had mounted a search for the remnants of the coalition that, just two years ago, propelled him and the Democrats into power, he might have found bits of it scattered at a job fair yesterday in Greensboro, North Carolina. One brother, who was interviewed by a television station, said he had to make a choice between taking a ride to that jobs fair or to go vote. The job fair won out. Obama should take heed. Because no matter what the pundits say, no matter how they spin the results of the first midterm election after two years of rule by the nations first black president, whats clear is this: People always vote their pocketbook. Or … in the case of this brother … not at all. In many ways the president, like so many other black firsts, has been held to unrealistic expectations. He inherited the worst recession in more than 20 years, as well as two wars and a ballooning deficit. Add to that an electorate that was grappling with unemployment and economic uncertainty, one that was as nervous about the future as it was hopeful about it. Obama came along, promising hope and change. Hes accomplished much of that. Among other things, the president has signed laws to allot more money for college grants and made it easier for women to challenge pay discrimination. His Cash for Clunkers program pulled Americas automobile industry from the brink. And he managed to pass the landmark health care law … a law which puts the United States on the road to universal health care. Problem is, people are better able to savor such accomplishments if they arent preoccupied with finding or keeping a job. And for much of the coalition that put Obama over the top two years ago a coalition that included blacks like the job-hunting brother, young people, Latinos and progressives jobs is their main motivator. But not a lot has happened for them there. So the challenge for Obama, beginning today, is to find a way to re-energize the coalition that brought him to power. Hes going to have to tap into their hopes again, first by making jobs a priority, and then immigration reform, and so on. Of course, that will be a lot more difficult now. The attacks of Tea Party wingnuts, Republican obstructionists and Fox News … attacks designed to exploit the uncertainty of the electorate through planting doubts that maybe, just maybe, the black guy doesnt have the stuff needed to run this country … have taken their toll. Hes going to have to deal with a Congress led by people more committed to destroying him than uplifting the nation. But even if they try to obstruct Obama in creating jobs, if hes at least seen as being heavily invested in that grassroots issue, and not aloof and more wrapped up in high ideas than in common issues, that will go along way toward helping him piece his coalition back together. That coalition, in fact, could counteract the Tea Party simply by being energized by solutions and by isolating the Republicans, who are powered more by their hatred for Obama than their ideas for improving the country. So theres a lesson for the president today, as outlined by the brother in North Carolina who spent Election Day looking for a job. He must get back to work on putting people first. Somehow, he must make that his centerpiece and take charge of defining the debate that will invariably surround it. While what Obama has done so far is historical and important, it wasnt enough to get enough young people or black people or Latino people out to vote for the people who would help him continue to do that. And its not that they no longer believe in hope and change. Its just that hope and change goes better alongside a hefty serving of jobs.

JobsBy: Tonyaa Weathersbee, BlackAmericaWeb.com Everyone, I have just listened to the President's post-election news conference. One solid hour of his answering questions from the Press. I have always felt that this man is stunningly eloquent. I have always found most of his ideas appealing, reasonable and well thought out. If yesterday's results represent a thrashing -or did he say thumping? -it has done nothing to diminish the qualities I see in him that make my heart sing. This was not one of his eloquent prepared speeches. This was an eloquent, spontaneous response to questions about him, his policies and his performance. And I personally found him dignified, personable and reassuring. I just had to tell somebody. And, I chose you. Ash NGVVGT"VQ"VJG"GFKVQT

NOVEMBER 6, 2010 THE STAR PAGE A-5 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. Customers are “lling 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.

PAGE A-6 THE STAR NOVEMBER 6, 2010ENTERTAINMENT There are people who become invisible in a crowd or are too uneventful to attract attention even when no one else is around and then there are those who become the center of attention regardless of their surroundings. Actress, singer and activist Jenifer Lewis has no problem falling into the latter category mentioned above. Shyness or being mealymouth has never been her forte. Lewis laughs, That was who I was. I started singing in the Baptist Church so my first audience was the congregation and I showed out. You know how we holler and scream go on Jenny sing Jenny. That was the stuff that fed me honey. You know the mother sitting on the front row of the church, hollerin and screamin and wavin their fan at me telling me go on Jenny. Lewis grew up in Kinlock, Missouri in the metro St. Louis area and graduated from Webster University, a local school. She then headed to New York and began a theatre career with a series of appearances on Broadway. Why did she choose Broadway over TV and film in LA? Lewis explains, Theatre is my first love. I was supposed to go to Broadway first. I was trained to hit the back row of the theatre. Thats why my acting today is so broad. I had to go to New York first. I had the big voice, the dramatic jesters and Id been trained in the classics at Webster University; oh I was ready for the stage! And I got my first Broadway show (Eubie the Musical Revue at the Ambassador Theatre) in less than two weeks upon arriving out of college in New York and that was a great ride. I was very blessed and fortunate to do it pretty much the way I wanted to from Broadway to movies and television. To avoid painting too fairy tale of a picture, Lewis did go through some tough times in the big apple. As she explains, When you are that young, you dont know the difference. Let me put it like this, I had a dream and I held to that dream no matter what. I didnt care. If the door was locked, I didnt knock on it, I knocked it down. I kicked it down. I was determine to have what I wanted in this life. I did the work. I went to school, I trained, I stayed in classes, I was on time, I was disciplined, I worked out, I went to dance classes and voice classes. This wasnt inherited or came overnight, I worked for what I have and thats why Im able to enjoy it now because I earned it. Lewis used the platform of the Oprah Winfrey Show to announce that she is bi-polar and has been undergoing profession treatment for several years. She also has a one-woman play on the subject titled BiPolar, Bath and Beyond. Lewis stressed, I have bipolar disorder and I went and got help for it which I hope a lot of people do if they feel they have it. The person that goes I aint crazy, thats usually the one that is and they need to go get some help. I went to therapy for seventeen years of my life. You see, aint no shame in my game baby. I took care of myself and thats why I live so well now. I am medicated. Its a chemical imbalance in the brain. Its a disease like high blood pressure; it is nothing to be ashamed of. Lewis latest film is Hereafter starring Matt Damon and directed by Clint Eastwood. Damon is a psychic who can communicate with the dead on the other side and Lewis plays a lady who wants to talk to her deceased daughter. In describing her scene, Lewis says, Its very intense and I had a good time performing in this movie with Matt Damon. MUSIC: The music soundtrack album FOR COLORED GIRLS, was released this week on Atlantic Records. It has an all female line-up featuring Janelle Monae, Estelle, Laura Izibor, Leona Lewis, Gladys Knight and others. One of the history making highlights of the project is the films cover song Four Women originally released and performed by the great Nina Simone. The soundtrack album has Nina herself and her daughter Simone, Laura Izibor and Ledisi performing the new version. Reno Chinati has dropped a new single Nightlife ft. Kamilah Summer & INZO, produced by IN-ZO for Stashbox Recordings. Vocalist Lalah Hathaway will perform a free, live concert this week at the Center Court in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza Mall in LA. COMEDY: Our sources tell us that master comic Katt Williams is about to drop a new DVD titled Lives which addresses everything good and bad that has happened to the funny man since his meteoric rise to superstardom in the comedy arena. Fellow comic Mike Epps and rapper Snoop Dog have paired to create a Comedy/Hip-Hop Show which will tour. They have a show stop in LA this week at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City.

Pictures; Starring Matt Damon, Cecile De France, Jay Mahr, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jenifer Lewis and George McLaren. Directed by Clint Eastwood. Produced by Clint Eastwood, Kathleen Kennedy, Robert Lorenz and Framk Marshall. Written by Peter Morgan. Death and the here after is a subject matter that has no definitive answers since on one has ever come back from the other side to explain what it is like. This film handles the subject in such a way that you must draw your own conclusions. It may be a bit too slow for action and heavy drama buffs. You all had better wait for cable or Netflex! For Colored Girls; Lionsgate Films and 34th St Films. Starring Kerry Washington, Whoopi Goldberg, Hill Harper, Macy Gray, Richard Lawson, Tessa Thompson, Khalil Kain, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, Phylicia Rashad, Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Michael Ealy, Kimberly Elise and Omari Hardwick. Screenplay, directed and produced by Tyler Perry based on the award winning stage play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf written by Ntozake Shange. The reviews have been brutal against Tyler Perry but the subject matter of this project runs deeper than just a movie. Granted that the Black men are all portrayed in a very negative light but that is also an insight of the mindset and thought process of the women who gravitate toward those type of dog men and must have them. The film is supposed to come from a womans point of view. The controversies (good and bad) will fly from this one! Hit me up at feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net Study, Observe and Win!

They got the hell beat out of them in the 2010 elections! But it didnt have to be that way. Democratic leaders were told time and time again how they could win races in 2010 but they ignored all of the advice but the wrong advice! Republicans blazed a trail through Americas polling places just like Sherman blazed through Atlanta during The Civil War turning Democratic contenders into burned out political pretenders! Will this trend continue in 2012? Will President Barack Obama be victimized by a future GOP onslaught? Perhaps, but he doesnt have to be. All Democratic candidates have to do is make some critical election adjustments to do better in elections. Democrats have to: (1) Discard their medieval strategy. The idea of winning by being reactionary is ridiculous. Democrats have been trying to win using tactics they used in the 1950s. They cant compete with Republicans technologically. They cant compete with Republicans philosophically. They have no solid, effective campaign plans. Theyve tried to win by parroting conservative Republicans instead of designing their own political vote generating mechanism. (2) Dont blame money for political success or failure. Democrats will never out raise or out spend Republican money people. Democrats wrongfully joined with Republicans to allow American and foreign corporations the legal authority to buy elections. Many Democrats that lost were overwhelmed by Republican-based PACs, 527s and other groups that flooded races with outside moneyŽ. Democrats win elections by outworking their opponents, not by out spending them. Even when Democrats had money to spend, it was spent with the wrong vendors, the wrong people. (3) Dismiss the poor performing Democratic consultants. The Democratic Party has never sought to retain and hire the most professional political consultants. No matter how many elections they lose, Democrats will always go back to the losing consultants they hired before. The political advice given to Democratic candidates was criminal, fraudulent and somewhat racist. Any consultant that advised Democrats to ignore their strongest supporters in a crucial election should not only be fired but should be permanently barred from ever working for Democratic candidates again. (4) Discover an effective was to better motivate and influence Black and other minority voters. In recent elections, Democrats have chosen to try to be more klanlike, so to speak, than Republicans. They have chosen red-necked running mates and refused to address issues of concern to minorities like job creation and immigration reform. Democrats continue to disrespect their most loyal bases of voters. Even organized labor is disrespected by Democrats much too often. (5) Diversify their media placement. Democrats have been tricked to believe that they should spend all the money they can on broadcast advertising. The people are not convinced by negative ads regardless of how many are bought. Negative advertising reduces voter turnout not increases it. Also, voters that make up the Democratic base are more influenced by their own media and their own people. Black voters, for instance, prefer to vote for people they know. The Any Negro Will DoŽ philosophy endeared by Democrats will never generate the necessary Black voter turnout needed for Democratic victories. Instead of using minority consultants that suck up to or bow down to Democratic leaders, Democrats should seek to hire minority consultants that minority voters trust and respect. Who can deliver?Ž has always been the only question of importance when deciding who should be hired to generate votes. Blacks in America shouldnt be dismayed by the Democratic Disaster in the 2010 elections. They can turn political lemons into lemonade. They have two years to register and educate Black voters about what is important in American elections, money! In 2011, a non-election year, Blacks can have a serious impact on 2012 by standing up and speaking out about reapportionment. If Blacks and minorities dont protect their political interests in 2011 by making sure that new political districts are drawn fairly and will allow for increased and improved political opportunities, it wont matter what Blacks and the Democratic Party they love does They will lose again and again and again.

PAGE B-3 THE STAR NOVEMBER 6, 2010 Sheriff's Office Drug-Laced Candy Brought On Flight By TeenAn 18-year-old man was arrested after customs officials at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport found cocaine in his luggage, according to authorities. Jose Manuel Torres Perez, 18, of Puerto Rico, was arrested Monday. When he went through customs, officers found bags that held cocaine hidden under candies on a flight from Bogota, Colombia. The Customs and Border Protection officers tested the candy itself and found that it contained cocaine, as well. Perez was arrested and charged with importing 5 or more kilograms of cocaine into the U.S. If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years to life in prison. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.COUNTERFEIT MONEYBridget Berry, 42 years old, from 3239 Post Street has been arrested for trying to pass counterfeit money. On November 3, 2010 7:29 a.m., police were dispatched to a counterfeit money call at 1092 South McDuff Avenue (Kangaroo). The officer immediately identified the suspect from the description that was given standing... outside of the store. Post Miranda Bridget Berry told police a white male, approximately 40 years of age drove up to her apartment at 3239 Post Street. Ms. Berry stated she provided sexual services for the unknown white male who gave her $20.00 dollars. Ms. Berry stated she knew the $20.00 dollars was fake but she accepted it as payment. Ms. Berry walked to the Kangaroo at 1092 South McDuff Avenue and attempted to buy a pack of Marlboro cigarettes with the fake $20.00 bill. Ms. Berry had the money folded and slid the counterfeit $20.00 dollar bill to the manager. When the manager told her he was calling police, Ms. Berry stated, "Call the police, they need to get this guy that keeps giving me this fake money!" Bridget Berry was been arrested and transported to jail. Jerrell Lenard Jordan, 18 years old, from 4646 Moncrief Road has been arrested for the MURDER of Devin Demetrius Small, 26 years old. The shooting took place on October 27, 2010 at 7:40 p.m. at 6401 Wilson Boulevard Welcome Food Store. The suspect shot the victim numerous times. Racial Stereotyping Seen In Murder CaseBefore deputies charged Clint Horvatt with murder in the shooting death of his fiance, investigators said the 32-year-old pointed an accusing finger at an unidentified black man, giving the case an all too familiar racial ring. The case is one of quite a few that began with a similar story. In the late 80s, a Boston man told police his pregnant wife was gunned down by a black man who didn't exist, and in the mid 90s, a mother who killed her two children told a story that gained national attention when she cast the blame on an imaginary black man. Last month, in Putnam County, investigators were told a similar story by Horvatt, who is now accused of hiring a hit man to kill his fiance, Summer Smith, in what deputies have called a staged robbery. 911 Dispatcher: 911, do you have an emergency? Horvatt: Yes. Yes sir, I sure do. Um, my girlfriend just got shot. Horvatt later gave a sketch artist the description of a black man who he told authorities pulled the trigger and shot Smith in the head. 911 Dispatcher: Can you tell me what he looks like? Calm down, can you tell me what he looks like? Horvatt: Yes. He was black. I mean, he has -he's black, you know. "These racial hoax situations -I think you're attempting to reinvent the black male as a beast mythology," said Dr. Henry Thomas, a professor at the University of North Florida and the local president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. That mythology, it appeared, was played out all over again in an interview three days after Smith's slaying, when Horvatt told Channel 4 his description of the gunman in an attempt, he said, to find her killer. "It was a dark red truck, very dirty. It had garbage in the back, tire, leaves. It had some 40oz beer bottles in there," Horvatt said. The man then described the scenario of how Smith was killed. "He walked back to the truck and said, 'Give me your (expletive).' With that black slang," Horvatt said. Thomas said he believes if such racial lies continue, it would only further blur the line between race and crime. "It's an attempt to revive old racial images and old racial stereotypes in order to solve a particular problem," Thomas said. He also said the lie is very damaging to the community and will only make it harder for people to move on toward the future. Crime and Justice Crime and Justice Predator Watch Alvin Young They are men who have both committed sex crimes against kids. And police need your help finding them. First, take a look at 33-year-old Alvin Young. Young was convicted of lewd & lascivious conduct against a minor in 2005. Because he committed such a dangerous crime, he's now required to register with police. But Young hasn't registered since last year. Now police need your help tracking him down. Something you should know about Young, he's got a lot of tattoos. His arms are covered in names like "Aliyah", "Alicia", and "Clementine." Joel RogelioNext, take a look at 33year-old Joel Rogelio. Rogelio was convicted of child molestation in 1997. Back when he used to cooperate with police, he was known to hang around the Southside & Arlington areas. But now, he won't check in to tell investigators where he is. FDLE Special Agent Dominick Pape has a message for Rogelio and others like him. "Once we air you, we are going to continuously look for you until we find you," said Pape. You can bet Action News will continue parternering with FDLE until all of these guys are off the streets.

PAGE B-4 THE STAR NOVEMBER 6, 2010 SPORTS PAGE B4 C M Y K JAGS BECOMING A GOOD STORY A LOOK BACK AT IMPORTANT DATESIts a good story. Its the story of a franchise fighting back, a coach and quarterback steeling themselves against fan criticism, a general manager desperately trying to rebuild a roster decimated by bad drafts, and a town trying to hold on against a national media bashing it as a small-market mistake. At midseason, the Jaguars are 4-4 and everything is on the table. With a second-half run, the franchise, the coach, the quarterback, the GM and the town might all have reason to celebrate at seasons end. Should the Jaguars falter in the second half of the season, however, doubt would, again, dominate the picture.Yes, its a good story because it has real-life drama to it. Its a drama that began the day after last season ended. Lets go back and look at the important dates that shaped this season. Jan. 4„Head Coach Jack Del Rio delivers his season-ending review one day after the team concludes its 2009 season with a loss in Cleveland. We ought to expect to be in that postseason tournament,Ž Del Rio says boldly in establishing the expectation for 2010. Jan. 12„A morning-long meeting between Del Rio, General Manager Gene Smith and team owner Wayne Weaver leaves Weaver to say at a press conference later that day: I feel good about our meeting. I feel good that the team of Gene Smith and Jack Del Rio is going to take this franchise to an elite level.Ž Weavers words end speculation that Del Rio might leave the Jaguars to become the coach at his alma mater, USC. At a Team TealŽ rally that evening, Tony Boselli says: Ill be darned if Ill let Los Angeles or any other city come and take our team.Ž Mayor John Peyton adds: The measuring stick of viability is ticket sales.Ž Feb. 4„Joe Cullen is named the teams new defensive line coach. Cullen is a renowned pass-rush guru who is making a comeback from a much-publicized event while as an assistant in Detroit. The Cullen hire makes it clear to everyone that the teams number one offseason priority is to fix what was the leagues worst pass-rush in 2009. Late Feb.„The team conducts a voluntary quarterback camp,Ž the significance of which is that David Garrard responds to criticism from his coach and owner that he needs to work harder at his craft. He then dedicates himself to the best work ethic of his career. March 7„ Though he is only three months off knee reconstruction, the Jaguars sign veteran defensive end Aaron Kampman in free agency. They give Kampman $11 million to be the teams featured pass-rusher. Kampmans reputation for hard work precedes him. April 22„With the 10th pick of the draft, the Jaguars select littleknown Cal defensive tackle Tyson Alualu, sending Tim Tebow fans into a firestorm of protest. With the selection of Alualu, GM Smith leaves little doubt whos in charge. July 27„Weaver announces at a jampacked press conference in the stadiums Terrace Suite that EverBank has purchased the naming rights to what previously had been Jacksonville Municipal Stadium for three worrisome years. The announcement creates a wave of feel-good for the future of the franchise. A few days later, the team announces a similar naming rights deal with Florida Blue for the teams practice fields. Sept. 5„Smith trades safety Reggie Nelson to Cincinnati as part of final roster cuts. Nelsons departure leaves the Jaguars with only two first-round picks, Marcedes Lewis and Derrick Harvey, remaining from ShackŽ Harris six years as personnel director. Sept. 12„Tebow jerseys abound at the Jaguars season-opener, but Alualu stops Tebow for no gain on the first of two rushing attempts by the former Florida star and hometown hero. The Jaguars win the game and hope springs eternal for the teams effort to avoid a TV blackout in 2010. Sept. 19„The San Diego Chargers bring the Jags and their fans back to earth with a 38-13 thrashing of the visitors. Right away, Garrard is under fire from fans, and criticism snowballs a week later when the Jags are walloped at home by Michael Vick and the Eagles, 28-3. Oct. 3„Just when it appears the Jaguars are headed for another bad season, Garrard comes to life against the visiting Colts. Josh Scobee kicks a walk-off, 59-yard field goal in one of the greatest home victories in Jaguars history. Oct. 20„Two days after a demoralizing 30-3 loss on Monday Night Football to the visiting Tennessee Titans, Del Rio says that young safeties Courtney Greene and Don Carey will be installed as starters and will be given a chance in what remains of the season to prove they can be the teams future at what has been the two most troubled positions on the defense. Oct. 27„ Following a loss in Kansas City in which defensive end Derrick Harvey did not appear on the final stats sheet for having even made a tackle, Del Rio says Cullen has recommended that Harvey be demoted. It means that Lewis is the only first-round pick during the Harris years that is still in the starting lineup. Oct. 31„With six first-year and second-year players in the starting lineup on defense, the Jaguars turn in their most impressive effort in more than a year, scoring a 3517 win at Dallas Cowboys Stadium that leaves the team at 4-4 and with hope of being a playoff contender in the second half of the season. So, here we are. Its a good story with two months of writing left in it. How will it end? www.jaguars.com FLORIDA GEORGIA GAME -David Garrard received an award from game with Dallas for almost a perfect game -Florida won over Georgia this past weekend in Jacksonville. The Florida and Georgia Star Correspondent: Scott Jurrens Photographer: Joseph LorentzsonOn October 30, 2010 in Jacksonville FL at the annual Florida Gator/Georgia Bulldogs Fall Classic, also known as the Worlds Largest Cocktail party, the Gators nipped the Bulldogs to win in the first overtime 34-31. The first quarter of the game was scoreless as both teams had chances to score but the defensives held strong coming away with interceptions and creating fumbles. The Gators erupted in the 2nd quarter with 3 touchdowns, courtesy of Chris Rainey, Jeffrey Demps, and Trey Burton. Georgia was able to respond with a score from Bulldog quarterback Aaron Morris to wide receiver Tavarres King on a 63-yard bomb. At the half, the Gators led 21-7. The sole score in the 3rd quarter was a Bulldog 28-yard field goal by Blair Walsh to inch the score at the end of the quarter, Gators 21, Bulldogs 10. In the 4th quarter, both teams lit up the scoreboard with two Bulldog touchdowns (Washaun Ealey 4-yard scamper and 15-yard reception by A.J. Green) and a 51-yard touchdown run by Gator Trey Burton and 34-yard Gator field goal by Chas Henry to knot the game up at the end of regulation 31-31. In overtime, the Bulldogs got the ball first, 1st down and 10 at the Gator 25-yd line. The Gator defense intercepted an Aaron Murphy pass to stop that Georgia scoring attempt. The Gators took over 1st and 10 on the Georgia 25-yard line. After several plays, the Gator offense stalled and punter-turned-kicker Chas Henry was called upon to attempt a 37-yard field goal for the Gator victory. With his teammates support, he nailed the kick and Gators won 34-31. This was the first overtime game ever in the 95 year history of this series. Florida head coach Urban Meyers said, "This is the biggest win we've had. We've had some great wins around here and maybe some people would say more important. I'd probably argue that one. This is the biggest one that I can remember, and I've coached a long time." The win keeps the Gator SEC Eastern Division title hunt and eliminates the Bulldogs chances altogether. Georgia came into the game with a three game winning streak and Florida a three game losing streak. The Gators (5-3, 3-3 SEC) now will face Vanderbilt Commodores (2-6, 1-4 SEC) on the road on Saturday, November 6, 2010. The Commodores got trounced by the Arkansas Razorbacks 49-14. Expectations would be the Gators will have no problems winning this road game after the emotional win over Georgia this past weekend. Public Service Announcement Community Event Health Fair!!!

LeBron Misses Practice James was held of Miami's practice on Thursday with a deep bruise on his right shin, which has bothering him for about a week. The NBA's two-time reigning MVP expects to play Friday when the Heat visit New Orleans. James says the shin has bothered him since getting bumped during Sunday's game in New Jersey. He played through it against Minnesota on Tuesday, finishing with 20 points and 12 assists. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says the decision to not have James practice on Thursday was "precautionary, so he can play the back-to-back." After the game in New Orleans, Miami returns home Saturday to face the Nets.

That's why beginning with this 2010-2011 Performing Arts Series season, GIAHA is offering reduced ticket prices for ages 18 and under. Performing Arts Series shows have tiered pricing for GIAHA members and non-members, depending on whether they buy tickets in advance at a savings or purchase them at slightly higher day-of-show prices. But for ages 18 and under, regardless of when the ticket is purchased, admission is always only $5. That's just $5 to experience the incredible musical virtuosity of Dromedary Quartet (November 20, 8:00 p.m.); witness a world-class performance by the Atlanta Opera of La boheme (January 23, 2011), the basis for the Broadway hit Rent; enjoy original GIAHA productions like A Christmas Carol (December 2010) or "Ain't We Got Fun" (February 2011), a special Big Read concert of words and music from the 20s; and travel back in time to be inspired by the life and art of country crossover artist Patsy Cline (April 2011). And because admission to all GIAHA film screenings is always $5 for all ages, young people can also learn something about cinema history and discover movies they're likely too young to have seen on the big screen during GIAHA's Silver Screen Saturdays and Summer Classic Movies series, as well as special screenings of documentaries, independents, and films of local interest, such as the upcoming Bullfrogs on My Mind (October 28), the proceeds of which will support GIAHAs new Arts In/Arts Out educational program in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club. The arts are vital for any community, and GIAHA is doing its part to ensure that local young people have the chance to experience the kind of culture usually available only in bigger cities. GIAHA hopes everyone will take advantage of this special offer and Be a Part of the Art in the Golden Isles!

would be his last pictures.

Carroll and Brown Florida

Political History Makers

by: Lonzie Leath, The Florida Star

Can we now brag that Florida
understands the power and value of
a woman?
In 1992, Corrine Brown was
elected to serve in the U. S.
Congress and was again re-elected
Tuesday to add another four years
to her 18 years, already served.
You don't have to ask why,
Jennifer Carroll, First Congresswoman Corrine because everybody knows that
Black Lt. Governor Brown, First Black elected to "Corrine delivers."
elect of Florida Congress from Florida since
Reconstruction. Now Florida can boast of another
trailblazer, Jennifer Carroll who
presently serves as a Florida State Representative and come January, she will take the
seat of Florida's Lieutenant Governor another first for Florida.
Voting was not easy around the state, even though it appeared to be but one would
say it was not easy, using Duval County as an example of was displayed all around
America. People did not go to vote, especially members of the CARROLL A-7

Tiger Woods is No Longer #1
Some people say, 'what's love got to do with it?' but apparently there is a catch.
For the past five years, Tiger Woods has been the Number one golfer in the world.
However, since his many marital problems, he has not won a game. Last week, he
became Number two, behind England's Lee Westwood. Tiger has not won a game
this year.
Behind Woods are Martin Kaymer, Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker, as the five
top golf players.
His next tournament which is the HSBC Champions tournament will find him fac-
ing Mickelson and Kaymer, so, will he move up or down? Okay Tiger!

Ship to be Named After Black Admiral
America will witness its first ship to be named after an
African American.
The USS Gravely, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile
destroyer, will be commissioned on November 20, 2010 in
Wilmington, North Carolina. It will be the first U. S.
Navy ship to be named in honor of a Black commissioned
Naval officer.
Vice Admiral Samuel Lee Gravely, Jr. was the first
African-American to serve aboard a fighting ship as an
S officer, the first to command a U.S. Navy ship, the first to
Vice Admiral Samuel L. serve as a fleet commander and the first to become an
Gravely, Jr.
Gravely, Jr. admiral. Vice Admiral Gravely's Naval career lasted for 38
years.
Born in 1922, he enlisted in the Naval Reserves in 1942 and was recalled to
active duty in 1949. His personal motto was: "Education, motivation and perse-
verance are a formula for success."
Mrs. Alma Bernice Clark Gravely, his widow, is the sponsor for the ship. The
Vice Admiral died in 2004.

France Honors Toni Morrison

Toni Morison,a Pultizer Prize author and author of
'Beloved', was inducted into France's celebrated U.
S. novelist elite Legion of Honor society.
Frederic Mitterrand, France's minister of culture,
]pinned a red and goal medal onto Ms. Morrison's
jacket as many photographers took pictures. He
called her "the greatest American novelist of her
time."
Toni Morrison, Novelist The minister added, "I want to tell you that you
incarnate what's most beautiful about America...
(that) which gives a black child, born during segregation into a modest family in a
medium-sized Ohio city an exceptional destiny." He continued, "You were the first
woman writer to tell the painful history of Afro-Americans." "I am very moved
because I think it's v ery special to be with you and to tell you how much we admire
you and we love you... You're 'beloved."
The book, "Beloved" later became a play featuring Oprah Winfrey.

I have just listened to the President's post-election news conference. One solid hour
of his answering questions from the Press.

I have always felt that this man is stunningly eloquent. I have always found most
of his ideas appealing, reasonable and well thought out. If yesterday's results repre-
sent a thrashing -- or did he say thumping? -- it has done nothing to diminish the
qualities I see in him that make my heart sing.

This was not one of his eloquent prepared speeches. This was an eloquent, sponta-
neous response to questions about him, his policies and his performance. And I per-
sonally found him dignified, personable and reassuring.

I just had to tell somebody. And, I chose you.

The Vensons, Guests at the Jacksonville MOLES'


I am probably dating myself when I refer to
FAMU as 'The Hill'. However, during my days at
Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University, FAMU
was 'The Hill', and certainly not FAM. At any rate, I
returned to my Alma Mater this past weekend for
Homecoming. It had been years. However, arriving
on 'The Hill' brought back all the wonderful memories
of my days as a student. After all, we were celebrating
my November 1 birthday the entire weekend. And
celebrate we did! In a 'sea' of orange, the
Rattler/FAMU Spirit was everywhere!
After the game we joined classmates for post-
game tailgating where we renewed acquaintances with
Jacksonville natives John and Mrs. Arnette Scott
Ward, Noble Sissle, Jr. of Tampa, South Jacksonville
native Nathaniel Wesley along with his lovely wife
who resides in Tallahassee, Mrs. Nancy Thomas
Yarborough and The Jean Downings who had traveled
from Jacksonville for Homecoming. We continued the
evening at the palatial home of The Wards. After an
illustrious career in Arizona's Academia, the Wards
have retired to Tallahassee, where they both began
their college teaching careers.
After a very restful sleep we joined the Wards on
Sunday morning for breakfast before beginning the
drive back home. I rested on my birthday for I had
truly CELEBRATED and my wish to be at
Homecoming 2010 had been fulfilled!!!!!!!!

MOLES Celebration


When we think of PRI we
think of props, tents, etc. Well we
now know that they have events
at their Studio. Jacksonville
MOLES member Mrs. Janet
Garrett and Gregory Owens host-
ed a Halloween Party at the PRI
Studio and what fun it was! At
PRI, the props that we are accus-
tomed to seeing at various First
Coast events are featured in a
Museum type setting. And select-
ing this venue for a party was a
most novel idea. Costumed for
the occasion as Pirates, Witches,
Bunnies, 'Hip' Crossing Guards,
Rock Stars, Jackson de Ville,
Trick or Treat Lady and more, we
mingled while gazing at the
gigantic props that were, in some
instances, quite familiar to us.
The place provided great fun, not
to mention the magnificent cui-
sine of Chef Matthew Medure.
Hostess and Host Owens led
their guests in the Pictionary
Game and everyone left with use-

"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.


For assistance, please call:
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858

Shhhh... don't tell Wendy but the episode even has a few surprises in store for its host.

BISHOP continued from A-1


Bishop Dr. Rev Tom Diamond last Sunday before death and guest
Florida State Representative Audrey Gibson, Pastor Tom Diamond, Alex Sink for
Governor, Son Pastor Eugene Diamond, and Congresswoman Corrine Brown.
accepting the pastorate at Abyssinia here in 1984, he was pastor of Mount Bethel
Missionary Baptist Church in Daytona Beach.
One of Bishop Diamond's sons, the Rev. Eugene Diamond, was named co-pastor in
1998 and was elevated to pastor in 2002 when his father was named senior pastor.
In November 1999, the church, which had been a fixture on Kings Road just west
of Edward Waters College for more than two decades, purchased 10 acres of land in
North Jacksonville on Interstate Center Drive just west of 1-95. The church moved
to its new sanctuary in 2005.
Bishop Diamond was a former president of the Florida General Baptist Congress of
General Education and taught preachers on growing churches through Sunday school
as a teacher of the ministers division of the National Congress of Christian
Education.
He was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, the Baptist Ministers Alliance and
the NAACP. He authored several books, including "Book of Sermons Not Much
Just Crumbs," "Sermons from the Heart of the Diamond Mind," and "From Boys to
Men."
Known for his strong involvement in civil rights, Bishop Diamond led numerous
demonstration and challenged issues that were pertinent to the well being of local cit-
izens. He received various awards from his work and became well known through-
out the country for his preaching and teaching style.
"Bishop was a dynamic Father, Pastor, Husband, and friend" says Eric Sparrow, a
staff member of the church. "Jacksonville and the country have lost one of its great-
est."
Bishop Diamond is survived by his wife of 46 years, Lois B. Diamond: another son,
Minister Roderick Diamond of Jacksonville; eight grandchildren; and three brothers,
Bennett Diamond of Albany, Ga.; Oscar Patterson ofAdel, Ga.; and Willie Hill Jr. of
Jacksonville.
Homegoing services for Bishop Diamond will be Saturday, November 6 at 11:00
a.m. at Abyssinia Missionary Baptist Church.
Congresswoman Corrine Brown said, "We are all deeply and profoundly sadden by
the tragic and sudden loss of the Reverend Tom Diamond, of Abyssinia Missionary
Baptist Church, whom I considered as a personal friend and spiritual leader. Tom
Diamond was a man of great stature and one who was blessed with the passion to
serve his community. A man who was dedicated to living the true word and who
took his truths from the pulpit to the streets, teaching, preaching and reminding us of
our obligation to ourselves and to our community. He is to be remembered for his
dedication, determination and his unwavering belief in the sanctity of the Holy word
and its practice in service to mankind.
We offer our prayers for Mrs. Diamond and the Diamond family, his parishioners
and the community he so dearly loved. We are indebted to Reverend Tom Diamond
for all his good works and his love for all of us as shown as a true advocate for peace,
justice and fairness."
CARROLL Continued from A-1

Democratic Party. The polls showed early that the turnout was low. In Duval
County, there are 527,079 registered voters. There were 260,269 ballots cast,
49.38% of the registered voters, which is less than half of those who have the abili-
ty to utilize their right to vote.
Jennifer Carroll is truly a history maker since the 51-year-old is also the first black
female Republican elected to the state legislature. As an adopted child, born in
Trinidad, West Indies, she has shown much strength. The Navy veteran served for
more than twenty years, and retired as a Lieutenant Commander. She was an avia-
tion maintenance officer with a degree in political science and she also has a mas-
ter's degree. Both Congresswoman Corrine Brown and Lt. Elect Carroll hold mas-
ter degrees.
They are both very talented women and have served the community well in their
elected positions.
There were few Democrats elected during this mid-term election. Ms. Brown was
one and Democratic Rep. Sanford Bishop of Georgia's 2nd District, was re-elected
by a very small margin, even though he has served for 18 years. Also winning in
Florida is Iraq veteran, Republican, Allen West. The retired Lieutenant Colonel will
be representing Florida's Congressional District 22. Ten Iraq veterans will join as
new members of Congress.
Many were disappointed by some of the amendments for the State of Florida,
specifically Amendment 5 and 6. It is understood that even though the state voted
for the Amendment, it may not be able to become effective until after the census has
been counted and reported as it would go against the U. S. Constitution if the
approval change would overlook the minority population in the districts where such
a population is high and the citizens would prefer a minority representing them.
Even though Ms. Carroll did not use this on her platform, her son, Nolan Carroll is
a rookie defensive back for the Miami Dolphins so, we know someone is really
'watching her back.'

you struggling in life,
despairing that your situa-

Through it all she found God able to provide for her needs spiritually, physically, and

Drug-Laced Candy Brought On
Flight By Teen
An 18-year-old man was arrested after cus-
toms officials at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood
International Airport found cocaine in his luggage,
according to authorities.
Jose Manuel Torres Perez, 18, of Puerto
Rico, was arrested Monday.
When he went through customs, officers
found bags that held cocaine hidden under candies on
a flight from Bogota, Colombia. The Customs and
Border Protection officers tested the candy itself and found that it contained
cocaine, as well.
Perez was arrested and charged with importing 5 or more kilograms of
cocaine into the U.S. If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10
years to life in prison. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.

COUNTERFEIT MONEY
Bridget Berry, 42 years old, from 3239 Post Street has been arrested for try-
ing to pass counterfeit money.
On November 3, 2010 7:29 a.m., police were dispatched to a counterfeit
money call at 1092 South McDuff Avenue (Kangaroo). The officer immediately
identified the suspect from the description that was given standing... outside of the
store.
Post Miranda Bridget Berry told police a white male, approximately 40
years of age drove up to her apartment at 3239 Post Street. Ms. Berry stated she
provided sexual services for the unknown white male who gave her $20.00 dollars.
Ms. Berry stated she knew the $20.00 dollars was fake but she accepted it as pay-
ment. Ms. Berry walked to the Kangaroo at 1092 South McDuff Avenue and
attempted to buy a pack of Marlboro cigarettes with the fake $20.00 bill. Ms. Berry
had the money folded and slid the counterfeit $20.00 dollar bill to the manager.
When the manager told her he was calling police, Ms. Berry stated, "Call
the police, they need to get this guy that keeps giving
me this fake money!"
Bridget Berry was been arrested and trans-
ported to jail.

Jerrell Lenard Jordan, 18 years old, from
4646 Moncrief Road has been arrested for the
MURDER of Devin Demetrius Small, 26 years old.
The shooting took place on October 27, 2010 at
7:40 p.m. at 6401 Wilson Boulevard Welcome
Food Store. The suspect shot the victim numerous
times.

Ernest Thomas Bell, 14 years old has
been arrested for the MURDER of Shavaris
Wilkes, 17 years old.
Investigation revealed the suspect was
in an argument with the victim. The suspect
shot him three times with a handgun. The
parents of the suspect told police their son
contacted them and told them that he had
shot someone in the head.
The handgun was located in the vehicle,
under the drivers seat and wrapped in a black jacket.
The suspect was arrested and is currently in jail.

Racial Stereotyping Seen In Murder Case
Before deputies charged Clint Horvatt with murder in the shooting death of his
fiance, investigators said the 32-year-old pointed an accusing finger at an unidentified
black man, giving the case an all too familiar racial ring.
The case is one of quite a few that began with a similar story. In the late 80s, a
Boston man told police his pregnant wife was gunned down by a black man who didn't
exist, and in the mid 90s, a mother who killed her two children told a story that gained
national attention when she cast the blame on an imaginary black man.
Last month, in Putnam County, investigators were told a similar story by Horvatt,
who is now accused of hiring a hit man to kill his fiance, Summer Smith, in what deputies
have called a staged robbery.
911 Dispatcher: 911, do you have an emergency?
Horvatt: Yes. Yes sir, I sure do. Um, my girlfriend just got shot.
Horvatt later gave a sketch artist the description of a black man who he told
authorities pulled the trigger and shot Smith in the head.
911 Dispatcher: Can you tell me what he looks like? Calm down, can you tell me
what he looks like?
Horvatt: Yes. He was black. I mean, he has -- he's black, you know.
"These racial hoax situations -- I think you're attempting to reinvent the black
male as a beast mythology," said Dr. Henry Thomas, a professor at the University of North
Florida and the local president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
That mythology, it appeared, was played out all over again in an interview three
days after Smith's slaying, when Horvatt told Channel 4 his description of the gunman in
an attempt, he said, to find her killer.
"It was a dark red truck, very dirty. It had garbage in the back, tire, leaves. It had
some 40oz beer bottles in there," Horvatt said.
The man then described the scenario of how Smith was killed.
"He walked back to the truck and said, 'Give me your (expletive).' With that black
slang," Horvatt said.
Thomas said he believes if such racial lies continue, it would only further blur the line
between race and crime.
"It's an attempt to revive old racial images and old racial stereotypes in order to
solve a particular problem," Thomas said.
He also said the lie is very damaging to the community and will only make it hard-


er for people to move on toward the future.

Predator Watch


Alvin Young
They are men who have
both committed sex crimes
against kids. And police need
your help finding them. First,
take a look at 33-year-old
Alvin Young. Young was
convicted of lewd & lascivi-
ous conduct against a minor
in 2005. Because he commit-
ted such a dangerous crime,
he's now required to register
with police.
But Young hasn't regis-
tered since last year. Now
police need your help track-
ing him down.
Something you should
know about Young, he's got a
lot of tattoos. His arms are
covered in names like
"Aliyah", "Alicia", and
"Clementine."


Joel Rogelio
Next, take a look at 33-
year-old Joel Rogelio.
Rogelio was convicted of
child molestation in 1997.
Back when he used to cooper-
ate with police, he was known
"to hang around the Southside
& Arlington areas. But now,
he won't check in to tell inves-
tigators where he is.
FDLE Special Agent Dominick Pape has a message for Rogelio and others
like him. "Once we air you, we are going to continuously look for you until we find
you," said Pape.
You can bet Action News will continue parternering with FDLE until all of these
guys are off the streets.

I FLORIDA GEORGIA GAME I


The Florida and Georgia Star
Correspondent: Scott Jurrens
Photographer: Joseph Lorentzson

On October 30, 2010 in
Jacksonville FL at the annual Florida
Gator/Georgia Bulldogs Fall Classic,
also known as the World's Largest
Cocktail party, the Gators nipped the
Bulldogs to win in the first overtime
34-31.
The first quarter of the game
was scoreless as both teams had
chances to score but the defensive
held strong coming away with inter-
ceptions and creating fumbles.
The Gators erupted in the 2nd
quarter with 3 touchdowns, courtesy
of Chris Rainey, Jeffrey Demps, and
Trey Burton. Georgia was able to
respond with a score from Bulldog
quarterback Aaron Morris to wide
receiver Tavarres King on a 63-yard
b o m b
At the half, the Gators led 21-7.
The sole score in the 3rd quar-
ter was a Bulldog 28-yard field goal
by Blair Walsh to inch the score at
the end of the quarter, Gators 21,
Bulldogs 10.
In the 4th quarter, both teams
lit up the scoreboard with two Bulldog
touchdowns (Washaun Ealey 4-yard
scamper and 15-yard reception by
A.J. Green) and a 51-yard touch-
down run by Gator Trey Burton and
34-yard Gator field goal by Chas
Henry to knot the game up at the end
of regulation 31-31.
In overtime, the Bulldogs got
the ball first, 1st down and 10 at the
Gator 25-yd line. The Gator defense
intercepted an Aaron Murphy pass to
stop that Georgia scoring attempt.
The Gators took over 1st and
10 on the Georgia 25-yard line. After
several plays, the Gator offense
stalled and punter-turned-kicker
Chas Henry was called upon to
attempt a 37-yard field goal for the
Gator victory. With his teammates
support, he nailed the kick and
Gators won 34-31.
This was the first overtime
game ever in the 95 year history of
this series. Florida head coach
Urban Meyers said, "This is the
biggest win we've had. We've had

Run/Walk This Saturday Starting
and Ending at the Riverside
YMCA
First-Time Event Includes Scenic Bridges'
Route, Kids Fun Run, Entertainment by

Celebration
Jacksonville, Florida, November
4, 2010 Patrons of the Hearts will host
its first Bridges 5K Run/Walk this
Saturday, November 6, beginning at 8 am.
The race will begin and end at the Yates
Riverside YMCA, 221 Riverside Avenue.
The route is probably one of the most
enjoyable in Jacksonville, crossing the
Acosta and Main Street bridges.


some great wins around here and
maybe some people would say more
important. I'd probably argue that
one. This is the biggest one that I can
remember, and I've coached a long
time."
The win keeps the Gator SEC
Eastern Division title hunt and elimi-
nates the Bulldogs chances altogeth-
er. Georgia came into the game with
a three game winning streak and
Florida a three game losing streak.
The Gators (5-3, 3-3 SEC)
now will face Vanderbilt
Commodores (2-6, 1-4 SEC) on the
road on Saturday, November 6,
2010. The Commodores got
trounced by the Arkansas
Razorbacks 49-14. Expectations
would be the Gators will have no
problems winning this road game
after the emotional win over Georgia
this past weekend.


Also starting at the Yates YMCA,
a Kids Fun Run will begin at 9 am (one for
ages 3 and under, one for ages 4-6). All
finishers of the Fun Run will receive a
medal.
After the race, Patrons will host a
celebration complete with kids' activities
and entertainment by the What the Funk
band.
Entry fees for the 5K are $25 until
today (November 4, 2010) and $30 the
day of the race. Packets are available at all

JAGS
BECOMING A
GOOD STORY
A LOOK
BACK AT
IMPORTANT
DATES

It's a good story.
It's the story of a fran-
chise fighting back, a
coach and quarterback
steeling themselves
against fan criticism, a
general manager desper-
ately trying to rebuild a
roster decimated by bad
drafts, and a town trying
to hold on against a
national media bashing it
as a small-market mis-
take.
At midseason, the
Jaguars are 4-4 and every-
thing is on the table. With
a second-half run, the
franchise, the coach, the
quarterback, the GM and
the town might all have
reason to celebrate at sea-
son's end. Should the
Jaguars falter in the sec-
ond half of the season,
however, doubt would,
again, dominate the pic-
ture.Yes, it's a good story
because it has real-life
drama to it. It's a drama
that began the day after
last season ended. Let's
go back and look at the
important dates that
shaped this season.
Jan. 4-Head
Coach Jack Del Rio deliv-
ers his season-ending
review one day after the
team concludes its 2009
season with a loss in
Cleveland. "We ought to
expect to be in that post-
season tournament," Del
Rio says boldly in estab-
lishing the expectation for
2010.
Jan. 12-A morn-
ing-long meeting between
Del Rio, General
Manager Gene Smith and
team owner Wayne
Weaver leaves Weaver to
say at a press conference
later that day: "I feel good
about our meeting. I feel
good that the team of
Gene Smith and Jack Del
Rio is going to take this
franchise to an elite
level." Weaver's words
end speculation that Del
Rio might leave the
Jaguars to become the
coach at his alma mater,
USC. At a "Team Teal"
rally that evening, Tony
Boselli says: "I'll be
darned if I'll let Los
Angeles or any other city
come and take our team."


Mayor John Peyton adds:
"The measuring stick of
viability is ticket sales."
Feb. 4-Joe
Cullen is named the
team's new defensive line
coach. Cullen is a
renowned pass-rush guru
who is making a come-
back from a much-publi-
cized event while as an
assistant in Detroit. The
Cullen hire makes it clear
to everyone that the
team's number one off-
season priority is to fix
what was the league's
worst pass-rush in 2009.
Late Feb.-The
team conducts a voluntary
"quarterback camp," the
significance of which is
that David Garrard
responds to criticism from
his coach and owner that
he needs to work harder at
his craft. He then dedi-
cates himself to the best
work ethic of his career.
March 7-
Though he is only three
months off knee recon-
struction, the Jaguars sign
veteran defensive end
Aaron Kampman in free
agency. They give
Kampman $11 million to
be the team's featured
pass-rusher. Kampman's
reputation for hard work
precedes him.
April 22-With
the 10th pick of the draft,
the Jaguars select little-
known Cal defensive
tackle Tyson Alualu,
sending Tim Tebow fans
into a firestorm of protest.
With the selection of
Alualu, GM Smith leaves
little doubt who's in
charge.
July 27-Weaver
announces at a jam-
packed press conference
in the stadium's Terrace
Suite that EverBank has
purchased the naming
rights to what previously
had been Jacksonville
Municipal Stadium for
three worrisome years.
The announcement cre-
ates a wave of feel-good
for the future of the fran-
chise. A few days later,
the team announces a
similar naming rights deal
with Florida Blue for the
team's practice fields.
Sept. 5-Smith
trades safety Reggie
Nelson to Cincinnati as
part of final roster cuts.
Nelson's departure leaves
the Jaguars with only two
first-round picks,
Marcedes Lewis and
Derrick Harvey, remain-
ing from "Shack" Harris'
six years as personnel
director.
Sept. 12-Tebow


jerseys abound at the
Jaguars' season-opener,
but Alualu stops Tebow
for no gain on the first of
two rushing attempts by
the former Florida star
and hometown hero. The
Jaguars win the game and
hope springs eternal for
the team's effort to avoid
a TV blackout in 2010.
Sept. 19-The
San Diego Chargers bring
the Jags and their fans
back to earth with a 38-13
thrashing of the visitors.
Right away, Garrard is
under fire from fans, and
criticism snowballs a
week later when the Jags
are walloped at home by
Michael Vick and the
Eagles, 28-3.
Oct. 3-Just when
it appears the Jaguars are
headed for another bad
season, Garrard comes to
life against the visiting
Colts. Josh Scobee kicks
a walk-off, 59-yard field
goal in one of the greatest
home victories in Jaguars
history.
Oct. 20-Two
days after a demoralizing
30-3 loss on Monday
Night Football to the vis-
iting Tennessee Titans,
Del Rio says that young
safeties Courtney Greene
and Don Carey will be
installed as starters and
will be given a chance in
what remains of the sea-
son to prove they can be
the team's future at what
has been the two most
troubled positions on the
defense.
Oct. 27-
Following a loss in
Kansas City in which
defensive end Derrick
Harvey did not appear on
the final stats sheet for
having even made a tack-
le, Del Rio says Cullen
has recommended that
Harvey be demoted. It
means that Lewis is the
only first-round pick dur-
ing the Harris years that is
still in the starting lineup.
Oct. 31-With six
first-year and second-year
players in the starting
lineup on defense, the
Jaguars turn in their most
impressive effort in more
than a year, scoring a 35-
17 win at Dallas Cowboys
Stadium that leaves the
team at 4-4 and with hope
of being a playoff con-
tender in the second half
of the season.
So, here we are.
It's a good story with two
months of writing left in
it. How will it end?

LeBron Misses Practice
James was held of Miami's practice on Thursday with a deep bruise
on his right shin, which has bothering him for about a week.
The NBA's two-time reigning MVP expects to play Friday when the
Heat visit New Orleans.
James says the shin has bothered him since getting bumped during
Sunday's game in New Jersey. He played through it against Minnesota on
Tuesday, finishing with 20 points and 12 assists.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says the decision to not have James
practice on Thursday was "precautionary, so he can play the back-to-back."
After the game in New Orleans, Miami returns home Saturday to
face the Nets.

-David Garrard received an award from game with Dallas for almost
a perfect game
-Florida won over Georgia this past weekend in Jacksonville.

GIAHA OFFERS EASIERACCESS TO THE ARTS
FOR THE YOUTH OF THE GOLDEN ISLES

As the coordinating arts council for the City of Brunswick and Glynn
County, Golden Isles Arts and Humanities Association (GIAHA) has long been
committed to advancing arts education and increasing opportunities for our local
young people to experience a rich and varied range of entertainment and cultural
experiences. That's why beginning with this 2010-2011 Performing Arts Series sea-
son, GIAHA is offering reduced ticket prices for ages 18 and under.
Performing Arts Series shows have tiered pricing for GIAHA members and
non-members, depending on whether they buy tickets in advance at a savings or pur-
chase them at slightly higher day-of-show prices. But for ages 18 and under, regard-
less of when the ticket is purchased, admission is always only $5. That's just $5 to
experience the incredible musical virtuosity of Dromedary Quartet (November 20,
8:00 p.m.); witness a world-class performance by the Atlanta Opera of La boheme
(January 23, 2011), the basis for the Broadway hit Rent; enjoy original GIAHA pro-
ductions like A Christmas Carol (December 2010) or "Ain't We Got Fun" (February
2011), a special Big Read concert of words and music from the 20s; and travel back
in time to be inspired by the life and art of country crossover artist Patsy Cline (April
2011).
And because admission to all GIAHA film screenings is always $5 for all
ages, young people can also learn something about cinema history and discover
movies they're likely too young to have seen on the big screen during GIAHA's
Silver Screen Saturdays and Summer Classic Movies series, as well as special
screenings of documentaries, independents, and films of local interest, such as the
upcoming Bullfrogs on My Mind (October 28), the proceeds of which will support
GIAHA's new Arts In/Arts Out educational program in conjunction with the Boys
and Girls Club.
The arts are vital for any community, and GIAHA is doing its part to ensure
that local young people have the chance to experience the kind of culture usually
available only in bigger cities. GIAHA hopes everyone will take advantage of this
special offer and Be a Part of the Art in the Golden Isles!

I'm Just Sayin......


Some people don't understand
that love is constant work. The
energy going out has to match
the energy coming in. Ask your-
self, "What can I do to make the


relationship


better?


Want for


your partner what you want for
yourself! There can be no peace
of mind in love. Love never gives out or gives
up; only the person claiming it does!......I'm
just sayin!
