Tuesday, November 23, 2010, Thanksgiving week, is considered D-Day (The D is for Deadline.Ž) This is the last day you can file with the new Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) for an Emergency Advance Payment on losses homeowners experienced as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, if you are hoping for restitution for income lost due to the oil spill, according to Christine Karpinski. Persons needing answer should call Dottie DeHart & Company, at (828) 325-4966. The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, whose pastor is Bishop Eddie Long, in response to the allegations and law suits filed against Bishop Long, stated that they cannot confirm or deny that Bishop Long had a sexual relationship with any of the young men in the church. The church did acknowledge that the bishop took several trips with the young men who have filed a suit against him for sexual coercion. The church said they cannot confirm, deny or comment on the nature of the relationships. New Birth Missionary Baptist Church continues to take middle ground even though one of the men who filed charges against their pastor, Jamal Parris, stated that he and the pastor participated in sexual activity on church grounds. It is still not known what percentage of the congregation believes the bishop is guilty of sexual involvement with young men in the church. Ezekiel Wiley is a well known, greatly loved Brunswick business man, considered a philanthropist that was always willing to help neighbors and church members in need. On Wednesday, someone broke into his home. He quietly reached for his gun and fired six shots at the intruder. He could not see the persons face but could see that he was holding a knife. The intruder, William Bernard Stafford, 47, was pronounced dead at the scene and that is when Wiley realized that he has known the intruder who had broken into his home for more than 25 years. He was a man, he considered as his godson. The intruders mother lived a few houses down from Wiley and is actually considered his spiritual mother. The intruders mother, Rev. Carlee Wiley too is very loved by the community. Wiley was close to both mother and son. Even though she is grieving for her son, who police says had been arrested eight times between 1994 and 2009 for such crimes as forgery, burglary, assault, battery and shoplifting, she still had a mothers love but also understand Wileys action. Wiley had been in the hospital and perhaps William thought he was not at home. Wiley is sorry for his death but felt he had no other choice but to protect himself. No charges were filed. The Florida Star received a letter from Eric Wilson advising that he and his wife are in need of assistance regarding a health care problem for their daughter, Alisa Wilson, who is 37 years of age with a 10-yearold son. Alisa is in need of a liver transplant. The couple was informed on November 3, 2010 that Lisa would receive a transfer from St. Vincents ICU in Jacksonville to Florida Hospital in Orlando to receive preparatory rehabilitation for a liver transplant. However, on the following day, the family was told that the liver transplant could not be done because her medicaid care had reached its maximum. Prior to Lisas illness, she was with Sunshine State Health Insurance Plan HMO. That program was not acceptable to Mayo, which is known for its professional work regarding liver transplants. The Wilsons were seriously concerned as their daughters health continued to fail. After discussion with Dan Evans of The Florida Star and cooperation from their church, the Wilson again felt hope. A One Life to LiveŽ Candle Light Prayer Vigil is planned for Saturday, November 13th, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. at Good News Evangelism Ministries, 7646 Lem Turner Road, Pastor Dr. Deborah H. Coleman and Rev.

Elizabeth said she was not a drug user and went to the American Civil Liberties Union for assistance. Per hospital policy, Mort was required to submit a urine sample for drug testing. She was never given the test results and after she was discharged, it was learned that an order was given to remove the baby. Later test revealed that she had eaten some poppy seeds. Additional test determined that it was poppy seeds in her system, not drugs that caused the test results. The U. S.

Congress has one major piece of unfinished business that must be tackled before the year ends. Policy makers will need to decide what to do about tax cuts that will expire at the end of 2010. During the Bush administration Congress passed two enormous tax cuts that were skewed to benefit people with the highest incomes. To make the revenue losses appear less extreme, the cuts were phased in over a number of years and then scheduled to abruptly end on December 31, 2010. These gimmicks greatly reduced the 10year cost of the tax cuts and made them more palatable to anyone concerned about the impact on the federal budget of trillions in lost revenue. But at the same time, supporters of the cuts assumed that Congress would make them permanent before they expired. Now with the tax cuts fully phased in, the predicted impact on the federal budget has become a reality. In 2009, the cuts were responsible for over one-quarter of the federal government deficit. Of course, the economic downturn was the most important factor driving up the deficit. Fewer people working means people pay less in taxes. And while our safety net is meager, it is still costly when millions of additional people are forced to rely on unemployment insurance, food stamps, and Medicaid. As members of Congress consider the tax cuts, they need to remember that many voters believe the nations priority must be putting people back to work. People need jobs. Moreover, the deficit will shrink only after the economy has regained strength, when working people and thriving businesses are paying taxes, and fewer people need to rely on safety net programs. President Obama is proposing to extend the Bush tax cuts for lowerand middle-income tax payers. But he wants to end the cuts for 2% of tax payers: couples with incomes over $250,000 and singles with income over $200,000. This would bring in $40 billion in additional tax revenue in 2011 and over $600 billion over the next ten years. So what is a responsible member of Congress to do? Should the skewed Bush tax cuts that bestowed the greatest benefits on our wealthiest citizens be extended, allowing the wealthiest to keep the $40 billion next year? Or should this money be used for job creation? Of eleven options examined by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, extending the tax cuts for the wealthy was the least effective way to create jobs. Providing a jobcreation tax credit for businesses would generate four to six times as many jobs, and providing financial aid to state governments to minimize layoffs would create two to three times as many. In recent years, the rich have gotten richer and everyone else has gotten the left-overs. Ending the Bush tax cuts for the highest-income tax payers would slightly reduce this disparity. The additional tax revenue could create jobs in the short run and reduce the deficit in the longer term. Congress should have no doubt about the best decision to make.

Sarah Palin was campaigning for someone during the recent midterms and made a sly remark about Michelle Obamas Freudian slip. The one where Michelle accidentally made the veracious statement "for the first time in my adult life, I'm proud to be an American". Now why does that statement raise such consternation with people? Cindy McCain was intrepid enough to make a myopic comment about Michelles slip of the tongue during the 2008 campaign. Well guess what Sarah, Cindy, and anyone who agrees with them, here's a news flash for you, there are multitudes of people of color that share that credo. You see Michelle and ancestors met this guy named Jim Crow. The truth is hard to stomach sometimes isnt it? Now I know mama grizzly Sarah has a tendency to repudiate, Im sorry (refudeate as she says) the need to read, but Cindy surely you've heard of him. Jim Crow laws were draconian laws in the south that usurped people of color of their dignity, pride, and made them live in Dickensian conditions in the southern states between 18651965. Thats right 1965, that wasnt very long ago. Whats really surprising about this is that Cindy McCain actually went so far as to say Ive always been proud to be an AmericanŽ. Come on Cindy, you were born in 1954. Were you proud of the one that said black people had to ride on the luggage car of trains because the soles of white peoples shoes shouldnt have to touch the same surface as black peoples shoes? Or maybe it was the nice, well kept white water fountains and the deplorable colored water fountains. Seriously ladies, have you always been proud of these ridiculous FACTS about America? I capitalized the word facts because your party seems to ignore them, rather than face them. I know thats all in the past and things are much, much better now, but Michelles mother, father and grandparents surly have shared the horror stories with her. So ladies keep your comments about that issue to yourselves, because your familys life narrative will never be the same as hers.

In FriendshipTwo are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor: for if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow, but woe unto him that is alone when he falleth, for he hath not another to help him up.Ž-Ecclesiastes 4:9-10Each year during the month of November chapters of Links, Incorporated commemorate its founding and national co-founders Mesdames Sara Strickland Scott and Margaret Roselle Hawkins with friendship activities. The Links, Incorporateds chapters of the First Coast (Bold City and Jacksonville Chapters) celebrated together with a Friendship Tea** at the Epping Forest Yacht Club. Arriving in elegant hats and exquisite gloves, the ladies were gorgeous as they ascended to Eppings Main Dining Room resplendent with tea settings from Mrs. Louise Hueys (Bold City Links) finest china cup and saucer collection. Before enjoying the party fare that included scones, tea cakes, finger sandwiches, fruits, jams, jellies, and of course tea, the ladies enjoyed a program that included the Links, Incorporateds Ceremony of Friendship followed by a Friendship Toast. With Mesdames Wanda Willis (Bold City Chapter) and Karen Smith (Jacksonville Chapter) as the Friendship Tea planners, it was indeed an exquisite celebration!! ** Historically, Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is often credited with the invention of the tradition of afternoon tea in the 1840s. Traditionally, dinner was not served until 8:30 or 9:00 in the evening and the Duchess often became hungry, especially in the summer when dinner was served even later. She ordered a small meal of bread, butter and other niceties, such as cakes, tarts, and biscuits, to be brought secretly to her boudoir. When she exposed she was not ridiculed, as she had feared, but her habit caught on the concept of a small meal, of niceties and perhaps tea, became popular and eventually known as afternoon teaŽ. Women were first introduced to tea on a wide scale when Lyons tea house in Britain opened and not only served women tea, but even hired stylish young women to serve it. This provided a place for women, accompanied by a male escort, to go and visit with one another in an acceptable atmosphere. Afternoon tea (taken in the late afternoon) is also called low teaŽ because it was usually taken in the sitting room, where low tables (like a coffee table) were placed near sofas or chairs generally in a large withdrawing room. There are three basic types of afternoon or low tea: Cream Tea-tea, scones, jam and cream; Light Tea-tea, scones and sweets; and Full Tea-tea, savories, scones, sweets and dessert. In England, the traditional time for tea was four or five oclock and no one stayed after seven oclock. Most tea rooms today serve tea from three to five oclock. The menu has also changed from tea, bread, butter and cakes, to include three particular courses served specifically in this order: SavoriesTiny sandwiches or appetizers; SconesServed with jam and Devonshire or clotted cream; and Pastries-Cakes, cookies, shortbread and sweets.

PAGE A-6 THE STAR NOVEMBER 13, 2010ENTERTAINMENT The CW-TV Network premiered a new fall drama called HellcatsŽ (airs Wed nights 9/8 C), which has taken off ratings wise like a rocket. The shows theme centers on the lives of college cheerleaders and their coach. It actually gives a realistic inside look at the world of cheerleading. The coach of the Hellcats cheer squad is Vanessa Lodge, a former Hellcats cheerleader herself who has come back to her alma mater. Coach Lodge is played by Sharon Leal whom many Boston LegalŽ fans may remember as school teacher Marilyn Sudor. She was also the singer who replaced Jennifer Hudsons character Effie in the movie Deamgirls.Ž Leal is a long time veteran of the New York Broadway Stages with musicals such as RentŽ and Miss SaigonŽ under her belt along with list of numerous TV and film roles. Leal is pretty convincing as a cheerleading coach on screen, was she actually involved in the sport in high school? She laughs, I sure wasnt. I was not. My mom was always saying be a cheerleader. My mother always thought cheerleaders were so perfect and amazing. Every year she would ask are you trying out and I would answer no mom Im not … No! But I think if I had gone to a straight up high school maybe. I went to a performing arts high school where you took dance class, music theory, drama, so I really didnt need cheerleading. It makes sense to me because I do gravitate towards the whole performance thing. Had I gone to a high school that didnt have a program like that, then maybe I would have tried out for the squad because it still has that performance aspect to it and that probably would have been appealing to me but I didnt have to do it because I had the other programs to turn to.Ž Real life cheerleaders will find this show hitting close to home because the girls have to balance being pretty, outgoing and athletic while dealing with the stress of the competition. Does Leal see any comparison between cheerleaders and actors especially from a psychological standpoint? Leal analyzes it, I was really kind of in the dark about the whole cheerleading world, particularly the kind of cheerleading that takes place on Hellcats because it is competitive cheerleading with elements of tumbling, flying and acrobatics. You absolutely have to be an athlete to do some of these routines. This is something that they train hard for.Ž Leal further explains, I think I was part of the masses and in my mind; I decided that cheerleaders were kind of limited. I didnt really understand fully what takes place. There is a price for being a cheerleader with those little tiny outfits; youve got to be in shape and everyone wants to see a pretty, perky, glamorous girl. Whats been great about this show is bringing the perception to peoples mind that cheerleaders work hard. It takes athleticism, skill and discipline and it is so much more than pretty girls in short skirts.Ž Leal is also pleased that the show is the most diverse one on The CW Network and feels this is a step in the right direction. COMEDY: By now most of you have seen the video that is on YouTube and websites all over the net where comic Charlie Murphy laid an egg so big at Grambling State in Louisiana that the students booed him off stage. In parting, he held up the check that the school had paid him and said Yall can have it back, good night … FŽ you!Ž One way or the other, you made a lasting impression that will be talked about on campus for years Charlie! Lady comic Luenell is in a new film titled 35 and TickingŽ and will soon be getting her hair dyed platinum to be even blonder. TV: Radio Morning Show Host and Family Feud TV Personality Steve Harvey is getting over big time. His radio morning show will premiere as a nightly TV Show on CENTRIC beginning Monday, Nov. 15th a 9: PM. The show is titled The Steve Harvey Project and will be filmed daily in the radio studio showing the skits, interview guests and behindthe-scenes action of the radio broadcast. Word has also leaked that Harvey will re-team with Cedric The E and D L Hughley, the original members (minus the late great, Bernie Mac), of the Kings of Comedy for a 2nd major tour. The stage musical play Love Me of Leave Me,Ž starring Shirley Murdock has been shot for TV and will premiere Sat., Nov., 13th at 7: PM ET with encore broadcasts at 9: PM and 11: PM on GMC, Americas favorite channel for uplifting music and family entertainment. MUSIC: Louisiana State grad and former school teacher David Augustine P.K.A. rapper Dee-1 has a new video titled Jay, 50 & WeezyŽ cleaning house on MTVus and YouTube. The video is from Dee-1s latest mix tape I hope They Hear Me: Vol #2.

Mass Twitter Blast: On Sat., Nov., 13, 2010, President Barack Obama will receive an unprecedented global show of support and solidarity when a large group of Hollywood celebrities will join forces with people from all over the world by sending a mass Twitter Blast with the message I am w/u Mr. Pres.Ž A Video-Tweet will go out as well. This global call to action is intended to inspire the masses to show their unrelenting support and belief in President Obamas vision and help him build an indestructible twitter army for the 2012 election. This revolutionary campaign was organized and envisioned by Will.I.Am, Jimmy Jean-Louis and Mikal Kamil. Organizer Bill Duke and Director X will direct the video tweet. The event will take place at The Record Plant Studios in Hollywood and may set history over the net much like the late Michael Jacksons We Are The WorldŽ project did for recording. MOVIES: Due Date; Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Michelle Monaghan, Juliette Lewis and Jamie Foxx. Directed by Todd Phillips. Story by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland. Screenplay by Alan R. Cohen, Alan Freedland, Adam Sztykiel and Todd Phillips. Produced by Todd Phillips and Dan Goldberg. Peter Highman (Downey Jr) has to get home from Atlanta to LA in time for the birth of his son but an unfortunate set of circumstances that results from a chance encounter with disaster-magnet Ethan Tremblay puts Highman and Tremblay on a no-fly list and they are forced to travel cross-country in a rental car.

Brogan addressed nearly 150 well-dressed Florida A&M University (FAMU) School of Business and Industry students during a forum designed to prepare the students for the global economic marketplace. Chancellor Brogan emphasized that he is preaching to the choirŽ while discussing the importance of professional appearance. Looks like you know what you are doing,Ž said Brogan before complimenting the attendees. Im proud to look like a professional. When I was teaching fifth graders, I wore a tie to serve as a role model.Ž Jasmine Miles, 21, a native of Lithonia, Ga., shared how the forum prepared her for her internship with AT&T. The forum is important to us as business students because we get the opportunity to interact with CEOs and vice presidents on a corporate level and ask questions to find out what they have done to become successful,Ž said Miles, a fourthyear masters of business administration student. The experience we gained will help us to be successful on internships and full-time jobs. This summer, I had an internship with AT&T and I was that much more competitive because I had been prepared by these forums we have at SBI.Ž Brogan stressed the importance of speaking and writing well. He shared that every time he is speaking to a large crowd, he gets butterflies exclaiming that being nervous is not always a bad thing. Those singers, actresses and actors that perform on stage will tell you the same thing no matter how many times they have done it before; they always have butterflies,Ž said Brogan. Those are the good butterflies. Those are the butterflies that make you just a little edgy. They keep you sharp. They make you remember your lines or words to the song or in my case, it makes me stay focused.Ž More importantly, Brogan shared with the students that employers are taking a blind risk by hiring them, and it is the job of the students to relax prospective employers by thinking strategically. The forum was very motivating,Ž said Evan Lewis, 21, a fourth-year accounting student from Winter Haven, Fla. He [Brogan] actually gave us an insight on what he does. I felt that it was a good experience and Im very glad to be here for it.Ž Photo caption: State University System of Florida Chancellor Frank T.

Mr. Wilson was informed on Thursday, November 11 that Medicaid has made a determination, after many inquiries, to take care of surgery for Alisa. The Wilsons are needing to know the cost of all that is needed to take care of their daughter, who is getting weaker daily. They wish to know the cost and are having the prayer vigil to get help from God and the people. It is not clear how much would be needed and if Medicaid would want to know the total cost before going forward before Lisa can actually get prepared for the transplant. In talking with a medical care specialist, it was learned that many hospitals will take care of those in need, knowing that they may have to eat the cost of the procedure. In this case, at least they will know that part will be paid through medicaid. Another concern is the health of Alisa and her ability to go through with the surgery and the procedures that will follow. Prayer will make a difference. Therefore, all is invited by the church and the family, to attend this prayer vigil. Lisa does not wish to leave her son alone and her parents are getting older. When you see situations like Alisa Wilson, you wonder why Floridas Attorney General Bill McCollum has filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in the Health Care Lawsuit. Oral argument for this motion will take place on December 16, 2010 in Pensacola. With all of this, and realizing that Lisa is not the only person that is suffering now or in the future with health problems. Help is needed. Please help!

Florida National Guard Soldiers To Deploy To Iraq By Staff Sgt. Blair Heusdens AUGUSTINE, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2010) -Approximately 25 Soldiers from the Florida National Guard's 1153rd Finance Management Detachment were honored during a ceremony in St. Augustine, Nov. 10, 2010, prior to departing for their deployment to Iraq. The unit will provide financial assistance for Soldiers at forward operating bases near Baghdad, Iraq. For most of the Soldiers, this will be their first deployment overseas "We have a real young unit," said Sgt. 1st Class Corey Walker, the senior enlisted member of the detachment. "For a lot of people, this will be their first time going, but we're leaning on our veterans to push us through." To prepare for the deployment, the Soldiers spent months conducting additional premobilization training. The Soldiers will leave at the end of the week for additional training at Fort McCoy, Wis., prior to arriving in Iraq. "We've gone through months of rigorous basic Soldiering training," said Walker. "We also went through extensive finance training to hone our finance skills at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin." Family support was emphasized throughout the ceremony, with leaders at each level reassuring the families present that the Florida National Guard is committed to helping them while their Soldier is away. "What I want you to remember is, the Florida National Guard is a family," said Lt. Col. Paul Chauncey, the commander of the 927th Combat Service Support Battalion. "We understand that it takes the strength of each and every one of you sitting out in this audience for these Soldiers to do their job." "We recognize your sacrifice," Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw, The Adjutant General of Florida said to the families. "You are so much a part of what we do. We are there for you while your Soldier is gone. Please remember, we are only a phone call away." At the unit level, a family support group is in place to provide support to families throughout the deployment. The group has held numerous events prior to the deployment to ensure that the families know each other and they know how to get in contact with each other if they have any issues. The unit leadership expressed confidence in their Soldiers' training and their ability to accomplish the mission safely and effectively.

PAGE B 2THE STAR NOVEMBER 13, 2010 By: Lucius Gantt Every time a Black radical, Black militant or Black community activist stands up and speaks out about inequality, injustice, exploitation or oppression or some other wrong, an Uncle Tom or Aunt Jemima gets a job. The freedom fighter never gets hired! Martin was smart, Malcolm was smart, Garvey was smart, talented and skilled but no government and no private corporations recruited any of those guys for any job openings! Ever since white settlers landed on Plymouth Rock and Plymouth Rock landed on us, it has been the exact same way. I wonder where I would be now if I had scratched my head, buck danced, bowed down and kept quiet on my jobs at WSB-TV and at The Atlanta Journal newspaper back in the early 1970s. Perhaps I would still be working there and the handkerchief-headed Jezebel that is the star anchor at WSB and the neocolonialist puppet that writes columns for the Atlanta paper would be unemployed. Yes, The Rosa Parks, the Angela Davis and Fannie Lou Hammers of the world risked their lives and sacrificed their careers to stand up for their people and to stand up for principles that they believed in. Just look back just a short time ago, prior to the 2010 elections, our community was filled with people saying vote for this or that party and things will be better for African Americans. All the while the modern day Fiddlers and Chicken Georges were telling us that Democrats and Republicans loved us while some in our community were constantly saying Black voters and Black citizens were being neglected and disrespected by all candidates. For all of their love, 2010 Buckwheats got nothing but false promises from the politicians but when the fearless community activists began to call out representatives from both major parties, only then did Black newspapers and other political vendors began to see some crumbs of political money trickle in in the week or so before the Election. I dont have to tell you that the rabble rousers got little or nothing and most money went to those Black media owners and vendors that were as quiet as church mice. But thats OK. The God-fearing, so-call Christian soldiers stood up and spoke out not to get political contracts, they spoke out about unfairness because it was the right thing to do. One day, God willing, the modern day freedom fighters will be recognized by Black community members for their outstanding contributions to our progress and survival. I salute the sisters and brothers across the country that do the right thing, tell the truth and fight the modern day devils that oppress the people economically, socially and spiritually every day. Keep up the good work. More people appreciate the things you do than you think. Meanwhile, if you run across a millennium Amos and Andy or Sapphire any time soon, tell them they owe The Gantt Report!

Mabrie, MBA Intent versus Perception When you are dating someone, you naturally want to be the one to make them smile and provide joy in their life. It should be more than often that such attempts should be made to achieve this goal. When doing this, you must be as certain as possible that he or she will actually benefit and understand your intent. Every thought and action that you may have high esteem for may not actually stimulate your partner equally. You do not want to force your affinities during moments when you are supposed to be catering to their desires. It is important to be in tune with him or her when it comes to this aspect of the relationship. For instance, you may love just sitting and watching a movie while in each others arm on the couch but your partner may only partake in this behavior because that is what you enjoy. He or she may not mind that activity, but he or she may actually obtain more enjoyment cooking and drinking wine in the kitchen while discussing the day. Similarly you may like Ginger Ale and your partner likes Sprite, neither selection is better than the other, it is simply a preference. When you plan activities or give gifts to make your partner feel special, you want to make every attempt that you achieve the appropriate understanding of why you did what you did and thereby receive the satisfaction that your intentions to provide a feeling of specialness for your mate were successful. You want to get the perception right so that your intent is neither ignored nor taken as a selfish act that indulged your own desires. You may have heard of the term: 'perception is reality.' You must ensure their perception is accurate with the reality of your intent. Incorrect interpretation will create major barriers. Always keep in mind that just-because indulgences can be big or small; it is about the effort put forth to represent your care for him or her. Healthy gestures of affection allow relationships to stabilize and refresh because the partner on the receiving end is relieved that they are with someone who enjoys making them happy. Everyone likes that feeling.Contact Justin at justinmabrie@aol.com or Justin L.Mabrie, 5000 Almeda Road, Houston, TX 77074 for insights and concerns. By: Farris Long HOW TO FAIL IN 2011A new year is almost here. And I must say I have seen my share of successes this year. I've made a number of new acquaintances. I've had many new doors of opportunity open for me. I have accomplished things I never thought I could. I guess you could say, that in some ways, this has been a banner year for me. Of course I have faced my share of downs this year. But those aren't all that important right now. While reflecting on and being grateful for my successes recently, I was sitting in a book store. For some reason while I was sitting there sipping on a peppermint white mocha, I had a paradoxical moment. I decided that the labor to achieve success was no longer worth it. In that instant I said to myself, success is overrated. So I decided to change my flow and do everything in my power to no longer succeed. As I sat there I thought, Perhaps there are others out there who are tired of being successful too.Ž So I decided to share 25 personal and professional tips to help all of us who fall in this category, fail this coming year and from now on. 1) Don't be friendly. Friends have the potential to walk away from you. Who needs that drama? Then again, they can be great allies in tough times. But who cares? Right? 2) Avoid building your personal and professional network. One of the best ways to limit your "net worth" is to limit your "network". 3) Make sure you are disloyal. Loyalty to people is soooo outdated. These days, it's every man for himself. 4) Absolutely do not prepare for future opportunities. This assures that opportunities will always pass you by. 5) Blame others for EVERYTHING! So what if they were your poor choices that got you in this condition. This assures that you will never take responsibility for changing your present situation and failure is indeed eminent. 6) NEVER forgive anyone that has hurt you. Walk around carrying anger and bitterness for the rest of your life. Of course your lifetime will be a bit shorter because bitterness only kills the person who carries it. 7) Have a vision but do nothing with it. As long as your plans remain good intentions you have already failed because you didn't try. 8) If you do start something, give up half way through. Starting but not finishing is like having a car with only 3 tires. You won't go very far. 9) ProcrastinateAlways put off for next week the things that must be done today. And come up with the best excuses in the world why you didn't do them.. If necessary see tip # 21. 10) Avoid hard work at all costsPawn it off on someone else... or just don't do it at all. 11) Get rid of all trusted confidants and wise advisors immediately. They can really get on your nerves when they get behind you and start pushing you forward. 12) Why be kind and compassionate when you can be selfish and self centered? Life is all about YOUR happiness and well-being right? Say this with me... "NO ONE ELSE MATTERS...IT'S ALL ABOUT ME!" 13) Reminisce on all the bad decisions you ever made in your life and repeat them over and over again. 14) Constantly remind yourself of those mistakes and beat yourself up over them. People may mess this up by reminding you of your potential. IGNORE THEM and stay stuck in your past. 15) While you are at it, throw the biggest pity party you can. Invite everyone to join you in your pity party. Afterall what good is misery without company. 16) Doubt yourself and God. Obeying Him means you can't fail. So the smallest amount of doubt will help you to avoid obeying him and assures your failure. 17) Don't waste time praying! I mean if you do pray it just might work...and if you're planning to fail, you don't want to risk that do you?? 18) Your health doesn't matter so pay no attention to it. Ignore all ads that say: Smoking is bad for you; Don't drink and drive, Don't do drugs; Eat healthy; Exercise and anything of the sort. 19) Burn every bridge and forget all the bridges that brought you over. Who needs people anyway? 20) Forget about having a financial plan. Spend everything you have so you have nothing left to fulfill your life dreams. Impulse buying is your friend. (especially if things are "on sale") 21) Honesty is not the best policy... LIE LIE LIE!!! This assures your failure because people will not trust you. 22) Be a hater and be as judgmental as possible. Jealousy and judgement are the order of the day. At least in your own eyes you're better than everyone else. That has to count for something. 23) Never be the student. Always be the teacher. If you aren't teachable you can never grow. Growth means progress and that is what we are trying to avoid here. 24) If there is gossip to be shared make sure you spread it as far as you can as fast as you can. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT WHETHER IT'S TRUE OR NOT. Facebook is a phenomenal way to do this. Just post it on your wall and watch peoples character be destroyed at your hands. If Facebook doesn't work the telephone is time tested and proven to work. 25) DO NOT LOVE YOURSELF!!! So what you are valuable and special. You don't need to reflect on that. You're trying to fail here. Remember????? This plan only works for those want to fail in the coming year. I guess, for the rest of you who actually want to succeed in 2011 and beyond, you should do the opposite of these steps to experience success and greatness beyond your wildest dreams. Wait wait wait! I just realized something. If you follow this plan and you actually fail, you were successful at something which nullifies all the tips above. I guess if you are going to go through all the steps to fail, you might as well just go ahead and use that energy to succeed. You only live once, MAKE IT COUNT! Make It Count Announcements, meetings, happenings, and community events scheduled in Jacksonville and the surrounding area. The Gantt Report

PAGE B-4 THE STAR NOVEMBER 13, 2010 SPORTS PAGE B4 C M Y K Edwards Waters loses to Lambuth, 44-27By MIKE BONTS Sports Editor Lambuth was victorious over winless Edward Waters College on Saturday. But a pesky Tigers squad nagged Lambuth all game before the Eagles finally pulled away for a 44-27 football win on senior day. EWC (0-8) scored first when Jordan Brooks returned the opening kickoff 90 yards. Eagles sophomore quarterback Jordan Jackson, who made his second start of the season, threw for 155 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 65 yards. Jackson tied the game on a screen pass to sophomore Marquis Williams for 15 yards. But another long Brooks kickoff return set up the Tigers in Lambuth territory, and sophomore running back Randy Joyner plunged in from two yards out for a 14-7 edge. Lambuth took over from there, scoring 24 consecutive points with 9:41 left in the third quarter. EWC QB Brandon Turman kept the Tigers close with two touchdown passes to Jonathan Johnson. But Lambuth's Lawrence Coleman snatched a 39yard pass away from a defender, and Davis added h is second scoring run as Lambuth pulled away.DOLPHINS MOVE UP IN POLLSJU football moved up one spot in both major Football Championship Subdivision polls released on Monday.

KNIGHTS LOPES TALKS TO WEST NASSAU VARSITY2010 FFA Defensive League MVP Joey Lopes gave the varsity football team at West Nassau a spirited pregame pep talk. Lopes, who plays for the Jacksonville Knights, stressed to the young men not only how important it is to give 100 percent on the football field but also how important it is to give 100 percent in school. Lopes emphasized to the players that they should respect their parents, coaches and teachers. He always reminded them there is no IŽ in team, especially in football and that they have to bond together to help support each other. He also spoke to the players about the dangers associated with drugs and that to reach their goals in life they need to stay far away from drugs. The Knights kick off their season on Jan. 23 in Brevard against the Grizzlies and Open their home season the following Saturday, Jan. 29 at UNFs Hodges Stadium. Kick Off is set for 3:30PM. For more information about the Knights please visit www.jacksonvilleknights. org SHARK SIGNS WITH COWBOYS, ANNOUNCES ADDITIONSThe Jacksonville Sharks have announced defensive back Ross Weaver has been placed on league exemption by signing with the Dallas Cowboys. Weaver (61, 215 lbs, Michigan State) was added to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad after the promotion of Bryan McCann to the 53man active roster Thursday, November 4, 2010. Weaver had a private work out with the Cowboys earlier this NFL season. The Jacksonville also added lineman Derrick Morse to the 2011 roster. Morse (65, 310, Miami) heads to Jacksonville after a stint in both the NFL and UFL after a standout career at the University of Miami (FL). Morse was recently released from contract with the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL. Prior to being with the Mountain Lions, Morse saw action in four preseason games with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2008. Starting 29 games in his five-year collegiate career, Morse was an AllACC honorable mention as well as being the recipient of coach-given awards for commitment, leadership and consistency. Morse played in three consecutive bowl games, including a 27-10 victory over the Florida Gators in the 2004 Peach Bowl. Morse was a consensus choice as one of the finest offensive linemen in Florida out of Estero High School in south Florida. As a junior in 2001, recorded 74 pancake blocks in a 10-game season. Allen Wallaces SuperPrep and a SuperPrep All-American rated him the 38th best offensive lineman in the country. SuperPrep, Tom Lemmings Prep Football Report and the Orlando Sentinel Florida Top 100 rated Morse a Top 30 prospect. He was also third-team selection of the Fox Sports Net All-South Team The Sharks have added linebacker and wide receiver Charles Hunt Jr. Hunt (64, 225 lbs, Florida State) will line up at jack linebacker for the Sharks in 2011. Hunt played for the Utah Saints and Wyoming Cavalry in 2009 and 2010, respectively. Both teams play in the American Indoor Football Association (AIFA), a minor league indoor football league. Hunt, son of Florida State All-American Charles Hunt Sr. grew up in Jacksonville, FL. He attended Episcopal High School where Hunt Sr. is currently a football coach. The Jacksonville Sharks are members of the Arena Football League (AFL). The reigning South Division Champions play all home games on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

UF Gators Sink The Vanderbilt Commodores On The Road 55-14 The Florida and Georgia Star Correspondent: Scott Jurrens Photographer: Joseph LorentzsonIn Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville TN on November 6, 2010, the Florida Gators trounced the Vanderbilt Commodores for a game final of 55-14. The Gator offense capitalized in the 1st quarter on a Commodore blocked punt by Chris Rainey that lead to the first touchdown of the game on a 3-yard scamper by Mike Gillislee. In the 2nd quarter, the Gators blew the game wide open with 5 touchdowns and Vanderbilt was scoreless. Touchdowns courtesy of Deonte Thompson, Chris Rainey, Terron Sanders (a 45-yard fumble recovery and score), Frankie Hammond Jr. and Solomon Patton (42-yard blocked punt return for a score). At halftime, the score was Gators 41; Commodores 0. For those still watching the game in the second half, Vanderbilt got on the scoreboard with a 4-yard return of a blocked Gator punt by Javon Marshall for a touchdown and the extra point was good. The Gators responded to that score with two more touchdowns of their own with a 43yard run by Mike Gillislee and a 6-yard scamper by Jordan Reed. At the end of three quarters, the Gators led 55-7. A 4th quarter touchdown by Vanderbilt on a 6-yard pass to Jordan Matthews with 39* seconds left in the game capped the game scoring. Game final: Gators 55, Commodores 14. With the win, the now 22nd ranked Gators (6-3, 4-3 SEC) continue their two game winning streak and face the 23rd ranked South Carolina Gamecocks (6-3, 43 SEC) in Gainesville at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday, November 13, 2010 with a 7:15 PM EST kickoff. The game will be televised on ESPN and ESPN3. The winner of this contest clinches the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title and a berth in the SEC championship football game in Atlanta. The Gamecocks are coming off a 41-20 drubbing by the Arkansas Razorbacks (ranked 18th) so will need to regroup to make it a contest in The Swamp. If the Gators win, this will be their consecutive third trip to Atlanta and the SEC Championship game. And if the SEC Championship game is not prize enough, there is the coaching dual of ex-Gator now Gamecock coach Spurrier returning to the Swamp to face current Gator coach Urban Meyer. If the Gamecocks win, it will be their first ever trip to the SEC Championship. However, the Gamecocks are 0-12 against the Gators and have only won once in the last 19 times the two teams have played. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier synopsized the upcoming matchup succinctly with this quote, We're going to find out if we can perform on the big stage and this is the big stage down there, one of the biggest in the nation." College Basketball: OSPREYS SOAR PAST EDWARD WATERS, 98-54The University of North Florida mens basketball team exploded for 65 points in the second half as the Ospreys soared to a 98-54 exhibition game victory over Edward Waters at UNF Arena. UNF got a balanced performance in the victory with all 11 players on the roster playing and scoring in front of a boisterous crowd of 1,589. Sophomore guard Parker Smith led the way with 23 points all in the second half including seven three-pointers in his Osprey debut. I thought the loudest message sent tonight was the fact that we had over 1,500 people in the stands,Ž said second-year head coach Matthew Driscoll. Our student section was unbelievable for an exhibition game. I think people are starting to understand what we are trying to do with athletics at this university. I am most proud of our student body tonight.Ž Junior Matt Sauey finished with 19 points and a team-best eight rebounds while Andres Diaz chipped in 11 points and Brad Haugabrook added 10 points along with six assists. UNF shot 58 percent from the field for the game including a blistering 67 percent pace in the second half. The Ospreys also earned a 43-29 advantage in rebounding and recorded 22 assists on their 36 baskets in the game. We got a balanced performance and there was no one star for us in the game,Ž added Driscoll. This was a great game for us to get some guys their first experience with our program. We had some guys that havent played at this level in awhile and also a couple of guys playing their first collegiate game. We told our guys that if they concentrate on serving their teammates then we could be pretty good. We have multiple guys that can score 20 any night, it just depends on who is hitting and what type of defensive scheme we are facing.Ž The Ospreys flew out to an early 9-4 lead to open the game, before Edward Waters battled back with seven straight points to earn an 11-9 advantage. UNF answered with a 13-4 surge over the next eight minutes to gain control of the game. During their run, North Florida got baskets from six different players including back-toback buckets by Sauey to cap the rally. The Ospreys then closed the opening half on a 93 spurt holding a 33-20 lead at the break. Smith, who missed his first three shot attempts, connected on back-to-back threepointers to open the second half and ignite the Ospreys offensive barrage. He scored 11 of the squads first 15 points of the period and finished the half going a perfect 8-8 from the floor including his seven treys. UNFs lead continued to build on the strength of an aggressive defense that forced 20 turnovers and limited the Tigers to just 36 percent shooting from the field for the game. The margin grew to 30 points with 10 minutes remaining and reached a high of 44 with the final score. I was proud of the way our guys really guarded tonight,Ž said Driscoll. They made some tough shots but our guys for the most part did well defensively and thats what championship-caliber teams do well.Ž Charles Evans scored 16 points and pulled down a game best nine rebounds for Edward Waters.

FAMU must live forever.Ž Early Learning Coalition of Duval Honored Guiding Stars Centers with Graduation CeremonyJACKSONVILLE, Fla., On Nov. 3, 2010 Coalition of Duval (ELC of Duval) hosted a graduation ceremony honoring new and returning child care centers participating in the Guiding Stars of Duval (Guiding Stars) program. Over 100 child care center directors, elected officials and local non-profit partners attended the ceremony recognizing the accomplishments of the 149 earlylearning centers whose directors and staff chose to voluntarily participate in the program. I am so proud to honor the centers that have shown such dedication to early learning by participating in the Guiding Stars program,Ž said Susan Main, Executive Director of ELC of Duval. These centers have gone the extra mile to receive their star rating, which is ultimately an investment in the children at their centers. This program has truly become a community program. It is the foundation for improving early learning for our children.Ž Guiding stars, a two-year coaching and support program, transitions child care centers into early-learning providers so children start learning from the moment they enter into care. Guest speaker, Mayor John Peyton, commended the providers on their willingness to create centers dedicated to learning, and he congratulated them for their achievement. It is never too early for children to begin learning the fundamentals of reading,Ž said Peyton. Guiding Stars of Duval is a critical step in the efforts to enhance early learning among Jacksonville's children. This program represents a commitment from our community and those we trust to care for our youngest citizens, and we will all reap the benefits of their success.Ž To participate in Guiding Stars, centers voluntarily enter into the program, funded in part by the City of Jacksonville, through the Jacksonville Childrens Commission, to receive a oneto fivestar rating upon completion of the program. Each star correlates to five areas of early learning including environment, ratio, staff development, curriculum and program operations/ family involvement. The rating in each of the five areas, in addition to overall star rating, helps parents choose quality learning centers for their children.

Killed Intruder was like a Godchild
Ezekiel Wiley is a well known, greatly loved
Brunswick business man, considered a philanthropist
that was always willing to help neighbors and church
members in need.
On Wednesday, someone broke into his home. He qui-
etly reached for his gun and fired six shots at the intrud-
er. He could not see the person's face but could see that
he was holding a knife. The intruder, William Bernard
I I Stafford, 47, was pronounced dead at the scene and that
is when Wiley realized that he has known the intruder
who had broken into his home for more than 25 years.
Ezekiel Wiley, home owner He was a man, he considered as his 'godson.' The
intruder's mother lived a few houses down from Wiley
and is actually considered his 'spiritual mother.' The
intruder's mother, Rev. Carlee Wiley too is very loved by
the community. Wiley was close to both mother and son.
Even though she is grieving for her son, who police
says had been arrested eight times between 1994 and
2009 for such crimes as forgery, burglary, assault, battery
and shoplifting, she still had a mother's love but also
understand Wiley's action. Wiley had been in the hospi-
S. tal and perhaps William thought he was not at home.
B Staford, s Wiley is sorry for his death but felt he had no other
Wiilliam B. Stafford, 47 choice but to protect himself. No charges were filed.

Bishop Long-Is it Goodb
The New Birth Missionary Baptist
Church, whose pastor is Bishop Eddie
Long, in response to the allegations and
law suits filed against Bishop Long, stated
that they cannot confirm or deny that
Bishop Long had a sexual relationship with
any of the young men in the church. The
church did acknowledge that the bishop I"
took several trips with the young men who P
have filed a suit against him for sexual -
coercion. The church said they cannot con-
firm, deny or comment on the nature of the
relationships.
New Birth Missionary Baptist Church
continues to take middle ground even
though one of the men who filed charges
against their pastor, Jamal Parris, stated Bishop and Mrs. Eddie Long
that he and the pastor participated in sexu-
al activity on church grounds.
It is still not known what percentage of the congregation believes
guilty of sexual involvement with young men in the church.

advising that he and his wife are in need of assistance
regarding a health care problem for their daughter,
Alisa Wilson, who is 37 years of age with a 10-year-
old son. Alisa is in need of a liver transplant.
The couple was informed on November 3, 2010 that
Lisa would receive a transfer from St. Vincent's ICU
in Jacksonville to Florida Hospital in Orlando to
receive preparatory rehabilitation for a liver trans-
plant. However, on the following day, the family was
told that the liver transplant could not be done
because her medicaid care had reached its maximum.
Alisa Wilson, needs a liver Prior to Lisa's illness, she was with Sunshine State
transplant. Health Insurance Plan HMO. That program was not
acceptable to Mayo, which is known for its profes-
sional work regarding liver transplants.
The Wilsons were seriously concerned as their daughter's health continued to fail.
After discussion with Dan Evans of The Florida Star and cooperation from their
church, the Wilson again felt hope.

Elizabeth Mort and Alex Rodriguez, with daughter, Isabella.
When Isabella was born to Elizabeth Mort, 21, and
Alex Rodriguez, she was immediately taken away from
them after the mother failed a drug test. Elizabeth said
she was not a drug user and went to the American Civil
Liberties Union for assistance. Per hospital policy,
Mort was required to submit a urine sample for drug
testing. She was never given the test results and after
she was discharged, it was learned that an order was
given to remove the baby.
Later test revealed that she had eaten some poppy
seeds. Additional test determined that it was poppy
seeds in her system, not drugs that caused the test
results.

Get Off My First Lady
Let's put something to rest once and for all. Sarah Palin was campaigning for
someone during the recent midterms and made a sly remark about Michelle
Obama's Freudian slip. The one where Michelle accidentally made the veracious
statement "for the first time in my adult life, I'm proud to be an American". Now
why does that statement raise such consternation with people? Cindy McCain was
intrepid enough to make a myopic comment about Michelle's slip of the tongue dur-
ing the 2008 campaign. Well guess what Sarah, Cindy, and anyone who agrees with
them, here's a news flash for you, there are multitudes of people of color that share
that credo. You see Michelle and ancestors met this guy named Jim Crow. The truth
is hard to stomach sometimes isn't it?
Now I know 'mama grizzly' Sarah has a tendency to repudiate, I'm sorry (refudeate
as she says) the need to read, but Cindy surely you've heard of him. Jim Crow laws
were draconian laws in the south that usurped people of color of their dignity, pride,
and made them live in Dickensian conditions in the southern states between 1865-
1965. That's right 1965, that wasn't very long ago. What's really surprising about
this is that Cindy McCain actually went so far as to say "I've always been proud to
be an American". Come on Cindy, you were born in 1954. Were you proud of the
one that said black people had to ride on the luggage car of trains because the soles
of white people's shoes shouldn't have to touch the same surface as black people's
shoes? Or maybe it was the nice, well kept white water fountains and the deplorable
colored water fountains. Seriously ladies, have you always been proud of these
ridiculous FACTS about America? I capitalized the word facts because your party
seems to ignore them, rather than face them. I know that's all in the past and things
are much, much better now, but Michelle's mother, father and grandparents surly
have shared the horror stories with her. So ladies keep your comments about that
issue to yourselves, because your family's life narrative will never be the same as
hers.

Congress Must End the lax Cuts for the Wealthy


Congress has one major piece of unfinished business that must be tackled before the year ends. Policy mak-
ers will need to decide what to do about tax cuts that will expire at the end of 2010.
During the Bush administration Congress passed two enormous tax cuts that were skewed to benefit people
with the highest incomes. To make the revenue losses appear less extreme, the cuts were phased in over a num-
ber of years and then scheduled to abruptly end on December 31, 2010. These gimmicks greatly reduced the 10-
year cost of the tax cuts and made them more palatable to anyone concerned about the impact on the federal budg-
et of trillions in lost revenue. But at the same time, supporters of the cuts assumed that Congress would make
them permanent before they expired.
Now with the tax cuts fully phased in, the predicted impact on the federal budget has become a reality. In 2009,
the cuts were responsible for over one-quarter of the federal government deficit. Of course, the economic down-
turn was the most important factor driving up the deficit. Fewer people working means people pay less in taxes.
And while our safety net is meager, it is still costly when millions of additional people are forced to rely on unem-
ployment insurance, food stamps, and Medicaid.
As members of Congress consider the tax cuts, they need to remember that many voters believe the nation's
priority must be putting people back to work. People need jobs. Moreover, the deficit will shrink only after the
economy has regained strength, when working people and thriving businesses are paying taxes, and fewer peo-
ple need to rely on safety net programs.
President Obama is proposing to extend the Bush tax cuts for lower- and middle-income tax payers. But he
wants to end the cuts for 2% of tax payers: couples with incomes over $250,000 and singles with income over
$200,000. This would bring in $40 billion in additional tax revenue in 2011 and over $600 billion over the next
ten years.
So what is a responsible member of Congress to do? Should the skewed Bush tax cuts that bestowed the great-
est benefits on our wealthiest citizens be extended, allowing the wealthiest to keep the $40 billion next year? Or
should this money be used for job creation? Of eleven options examined by the nonpartisan Congressional
Budget Office, extending the tax cuts for the wealthy was the least effective way to create jobs. Providing a job-
creation tax credit for businesses would generate four to six times as many jobs, and providing financial aid to
state governments to minimize layoffs would create two to three times as many.
In recent years, the rich have gotten richer and everyone else has gotten the left-overs. Ending the Bush tax
cuts for the highest-income tax payers would slightly reduce this disparity. The additional tax revenue could cre-
ate jobs in the short run and reduce the deficit in the longer term. Congress should have no doubt about the best
decision to make.

"'There's Always Something Happening On The First Coast"

In Friendship 1mit


"Two are better than one, because
they have a good reward for their labor:
for if they fall, the one will lift up his
fellow, but woe unto him dlit is alone
when he fill ii, for he hadli not another
to help him up. "-Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Each year during the month of
November chapters of Links,
Incorporated commemorate its found-
ing and national co-founders Mesdames
Sara Strickland Scott and Margaret
Roselle Hawkins with friendship activ-
ities. The Links, Incorporated's chap-
ters of the First Coast (Bold City and
Jacksonville Chapters) celebrated
together with a Friendship Tea** at the
Epping Forest Yacht Club.
Arriving in elegant hats and exqui-
site gloves, the ladies were gorgeous as
they ascended to Epping's Main Dining
Room resplendent with tea settings
from Mrs. Louise Huey's (Bold City
Links) finest china cup and saucer col-
lection.
Before enjoying the party fare that
included scones, tea cakes, finger sand-
wiches, fruits, jams, jellies, and of
course tea, the ladies enjoyed a program
that included the Links, Incorporated's
Ceremony of Friendship followed by a
Friendship Toast.
With Mesdames Wanda Willis
(Bold City Chapter) and Karen Smith
(Jacksonville Chapter) as the
Friendship Tea planners, it was indeed
an exquisite celebration!!
** Historically, Anna, the 7th
Duchess of Bedford is often credited
with the invention of the tradition of
afternoon tea in the 1840's.
Traditionally, dinner was not served
until 8:30 or 9:00 in the evening and the
Duchess often became hungry, espe-
cially in the summer when dinner was
served even later. She ordered a small
meal of bread, butter and other niceties,
such as cakes, tarts, and biscuits, to be
brought secretly to her boudoir. When
she exposed she was not ridiculed, as
she had feared, but her habit caught on
the concept of a small meal, of niceties
and perhaps tea, became popular and
eventually known as 'afternoon tea".
Women were first introduced to tea
on a wide scale when Lyon's tea house
in Britain opened and not only served
women tea, but even hired stylish
young women to serve it.
This provided a place for women,
accompanied by a male escort, to go
and visit with one another in an accept-
able atmosphere.
Afternoon tea (taken in the late
afternoon) is also called "low tea"
because it was usually taken in the sit-
ting room, where low tables (like a cof-
fee table) were placed near sofas or
chairs generally in a large withdrawing
room.
There are three basic types of after-
noon or low tea: Cream Tea-tea,
scones, jam and cream; Light Tea-tea,
scones and sweets; and Full Tea-tea,
savories, scones, sweets and dessert.
In England, the traditional time for
tea was four or five o'clock and no one
stayed after seven o'clock. Most tea
rooms today serve tea from three to five
o'clock. The menu has also changed
from tea, bread, butter and cakes, to
include three particular courses served
specifically in this order: Savories-
Tiny sandwiches or appetizers; Scones-
Served with jam and Devonshire or
clotted cream; and Pastries-Cakes,
cookies, shortbread and sweets.

"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.

nearly 150 well-dressed Florida A&M University
(FAMU) School of Business and Industry students
during a forum designed to prepare the students
for the global economic marketplace. Chancellor
Brogan emphasized that he is "preaching to the
choir" while discussing the importance of profes-
sional appearance.
"Looks like you know what you are doing," said
Brogan before complimenting the attendees. "I'm
proud to look like a professional. When I was
teaching fifth graders, I wore a tie to serve as a
role model."
Jasmine Miles, 21, a native of Lithonia, Ga.,
shared how the forum prepared her for her intern-
ship with AT&T.
"The forum is important to us as business stu-
dents because we get the opportunity to interact
with CEOs and vice presidents on a corporate
level and ask questions to find out what they have
done to become successful," said Miles, a fourth-
year master's of business administration student.
"The experience we gained will help us to be suc-
cessful on internships and full-time jobs. This
summer, I had an internship with AT&T and I was
that much more competitive because I had been

Brogan stressed the importance of speaking and
writing well. He shared that every time he is
speaking to a large crowd, he gets butterflies -
exclaiming that being nervous is not always a bad
thing.
"Those singers, actresses and actors that per-
form on stage will tell you the same thing no mat-
ter how many times they have done it before; they
always have butterflies," said Brogan. "Those are
the good butterflies. Those are the butterflies that
make you just a little edgy. They keep you sharp.
They make you remember your lines or words to
the song or in my case, it makes me stay
focused."
More importantly, Brogan shared with the stu-
dents that employers are taking a blind risk by hir-
ing them, and it is the job of the students to relax
prospective employers by thinking strategically.
"The forum was very motivating," said Evan
Lewis, 21, a fourth-year accounting student from
Winter Haven, Fla. "He [Brogan] actually gave us
an insight on what he does. I felt that it was a
good experience and I'm very glad to be here for
it."

PLEASE continued from A-1
Mr. Wilson was informed on Thursday, November 11 that Medicaid has made a determination, after many
inquiries, to take care of surgery for Alisa. The Wilsons are needing to know the cost of all that is needed to take
care of their daughter, who is getting weaker daily. They wish to know the cost and are having the prayer vigil to
get help from God and the people. It is not clear how much would be needed and if Medicaid would want to know
the total cost before going forward before Lisa can actually get prepared for the transplant.
In talking with a medical care specialist, it was learned that many hospitals will take care of those in need, know-
ing that they may have to 'eat the cost of the procedure.' In this case, at least they will know that part will be paid
through medicaid. Another concern is the health of Alisa and her ability to go through with the surgery and the
procedures that will follow.
Prayer will make a difference. Therefore, all is invited by the church and the family, to attend this prayer vigil.
Lisa does not wish to leave her son alone and her parents are getting older.
When you see situations like Alisa Wilson, you wonder why Florida's Attorney General Bill McCollum has filed
a Motion for Summary Judgment in the Health Care Lawsuit. Oral argument for this motion will take place on
December 16, 2010 in Pensacola. With all of this, and realizing that Lisa is not the only person that is suffering
now or in the future with health problems.
Help is needed. Please help!


AAA: Two Out of Five Drivers Admit to Falling

Asleep at the Wheel

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a study that show that two out of every five drivers (41 per-
cent) admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel at some point, with one in ten saying they have done so in the
past year. The drivers admitted that they drove despite being so tired they had difficulty keeping their eyes open.
Eighty-five percent of drivers survey fel it was "completely unacceptable" for someone to drive if they ae so
tired they are having trouble keeping their eyes open.
To remain alert and avoid drowsiness, AAA suggests:
* Getting plenty of sleep (at least six hours) the night before a long trip;
* Scheduling a break every two hours or every 100 miles;
* Traveling at times when you are normally awake, and staying overnight rather than driving straight
through;
* Stop driving if you become sleepy; someone who is tired could fall asleep at any time.

Symptoms of sleepiness include but are not limited to:
* Having trouble keeping your eyes open and focused;
* The inability to keep your head up;
* Daydreaming or having wandering, disconnected thoughts;
* Drifting from your lane or off the road, or tailgating.

Florida National Guard Soldiers To Deploy To Iraq


By Staff Sgt. Blair Heusdens
AUGUSTINE, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2010)
-Approximately 25 Soldiers from the
Florida National Guard's 1153rd I
Finance Management Detachment I
were honored during a ceremony in St.
Augustine, Nov. 10, 2010, prior to .
departing for their deployment to Iraq. -. -
The unit will provide financial assis- -
tance for Soldiers at forward operating ?
bases near Baghdad, Iraq. For most of -
the Soldiers, this will be their first
deployment overseas "We have a real young unit," said Sgt. 1st Class Corey Walker, the
senior enlisted member of the detachment. "For a lot of people, this will be their first
time going, but we're leaning on our veterans to push us through."
To prepare for the deployment, the Soldiers spent months conducting additional pre-
mobilization training. The Soldiers will leave at the end of the week for additional train-
ing at Fort McCoy, Wis., prior to arriving in Iraq.
"We've gone through months of rigorous basic Soldiering training," said Walker. "We
also went through extensive finance training to hone our finance skills at Fort McCoy,
Wisconsin."
Family support was emphasized throughout the ceremony, with leaders at each level
reassuring the families present that the Florida National Guard is committed to helping
them while their Soldier is away.
"What I want you to remember is, the Florida National Guard is a family,"
said Lt. Col. Paul Chauncey, the commander of the 927th Combat Service Support
Battalion. "We understand that it takes the strength of each and every one of you sitting
out in this audience for these Soldiers to do their job."
"We recognize your sacrifice," Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw, The Adjutant General
of Florida said to the families. "You are so much a part of what we do. We are there for
you while your Soldier is gone. Please remember, we are only a phone call away."
At the unit level, a family support group is in place to provide support to families
throughout the deployment. The
group has held numerous events
prior to the deployment to ensure
that the families know each other
and they know how to get in con-
tact with each other if they have
any issues.
The unit leadership expressed
confidence in their Soldiers'
training and their ability to
accomplish the mission safely
and effectively.

A hearty recommendation.
A pot roast would really hit the spot. And with 7-bone chuck roast
and a variety of potatoes on sale, it's all the more irresistible.

Only about 200 people call Calvary home, but on
the first Saturday of November, every year, Calvary's
population grows to 60,000 to 90,000 (not counting
mules). The reason for this is the Calvary Lions Club
Annual Mule Day Festival. Proceeds of which go to
Lions International Sight programs and local charities.
Enjoy a big parade with mules, horses and antique trac-
tors; contests, and all day entertainment. Over 450 arts
& crafts exhibitions, concessions, cane grinding, and
syrup making make Mule Day a time to remember. It's
358 days left until the 39th Annual Festival first
Saturday of November returns.

ON THE ROAD 55-14
The Florida and Georgia Star

In Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville TN on
November 6, 2010, the Florida Gators
trounced the Vanderbilt Commodores for a
game final of 55-14.
The Gator offense capitalized in the 1st
quarter on a Commodore blocked punt by
Chris Rainey that lead to the first touch-
down of the game on a 3-yard scamper by
Mike Gillislee.
In the 2nd quarter, the Gators blew the
game wide open with 5 touchdowns and
Vanderbilt was scoreless. Touchdowns
courtesy of Deonte Thompson, Chris
Rainey, Terron Sanders (a 45-yard fumble
recovery and score), Frankie Hammond Jr.
and Solomon Patton (42-yard blocked punt
return for a score). At halftime, the score
was Gators 41; Commodores 0.
For those still watching the game in the
second half, Vanderbilt got on the score-
board with a 4-yard return of a blocked
Gator punt by Javon Marshall for a touch-
down and the extra point was good. The
Gators responded to that score with two
more touchdowns of their own with a 43-
yard run by Mike Gillislee and a 6-yard
scamper by Jordan Reed. At the end of
three quarters, the Gators led 55-7.
A 4th quarter touchdown by Vanderbilt on
a 6-yard pass to Jordan Matthews with 39*
seconds left in the game capped the game
scoring. Game final: Gators 55,
Commodores 14.
With the win, the now 22nd ranked
Gators (6-3, 4-3 SEC) continue their two
game winning streak and face the 23rd
ranked South Carolina Gamecocks (6-3, 4-
3 SEC) in Gainesville at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium on Saturday, November 13, 2010
with a 7:15 PM EST kickoff. The game
will be televised on ESPN and ESPN3.
The winner of this contest clinches the
Southeastern Conference Eastern Division
title and a berth in the SEC championship
football game in Atlanta. The Gamecocks
are coming off a 41-20 drubbing by the
Arkansas Razorbacks (ranked 18th) so will
need to regroup to make it a contest in The
Swamp. If the Gators win, this will be
their consecutive third trip to Atlanta and
the SEC Championship game.
And if the SEC Championship game is
not prize enough, there is the coaching
dual of ex-Gator now Gamecock coach
Spurrier returning to the Swamp to face
current Gator coach Urban Meyer. If the


College Basketball: OSPREYS SOAR
PAST EDWARD WATERS, 98-54

The University of North Florida men's bas-
ketball team exploded for 65 points in the
second half as the Ospreys soared to a 98-54
exhibition game victory over Edward
Waters at UNF Arena.
UNF got a balanced performance in the
victory with all 11 players on the roster
playing and scoring in front of a boisterous
crowd of 1,589. Sophomore guard Parker
Smith led the way with 23 points all in the
second half including seven three-pointers
in his Osprey debut.
"I thought the loudest message sent tonight
was the fact that we had over 1,500 people
in the stands," said second-year head coach
Matthew Driscoll. "Our student section was
unbelievable for an exhibition game. I think
people are starting to understand what we
are trying to do with athletics at this univer-
sity. I am most proud of our student body
tonight."
Junior Matt Sauey finished with 19 points
and a team-best eight rebounds while
Andres Diaz chipped in 11 points and Brad
Haugabrook added 10 points along with six
assists. UNF shot 58 percent from the field
for the game including a blistering 67 per-
cent pace in the second half. The Ospreys
also earned a 43-29 advantage in rebound-
ing and recorded 22 assists on their 36 bas-
kets in the game.
"We got a balanced performance and there
was no one star for us in the game," added
Driscoll. "This was a great game for us to
get some guys their first experience with our
program. We had some guys that haven't
played at this level in awhile and also a cou-

Gamecocks win, it will be their first ever
trip to the SEC Championship. However,
the Gamecocks are 0-12 against the Gators
and have only won once in the last 19
times the two teams have played.

ple of guys playing their first collegiate
game. We told our guys that if they concen-
trate on serving their teammates then we
could be pretty good. We have multiple guys
that can score 20 any night, it just depends
on who is hitting and what type of defensive
scheme we are facing."
The Ospreys flew out to an early 9-4 lead
to open the game, before Edward Waters
battled back with seven straight points to
earn an 11-9 advantage. UNF answered with
a 13-4 surge over the next eight minutes to
gain control of the game.
During their run, North Florida got baskets
from six different players including back-to-
back buckets by Sauey to cap the rally. The
Ospreys then closed the opening half on a 9-
3 spurt holding a 33-20 lead at the break.
Smith, who missed his first three shot
attempts, connected on back-to-back three-
pointers to open the second half and ignite
the Osprey's offensive barrage. He scored
11 of the squad's first 15 points of the peri-
od and finished the half going a perfect 8-8
from the floor including his seven treys.
UNF's lead continued to build on the
strength of an aggressive defense that forced
20 turnovers and limited the Tigers to just
36 percent shooting from the field for the
game. The margin grew to 30 points with 10
minutes remaining and reached a high of 44
with the final score.
"I was proud of the way our guys really
guarded tonight," said Driscoll. "They made
some tough shots but our guys for the most
part did well defensively and that's what
championship-caliber teams do well."
Charles Evans scored 16 points and pulled
down a game best nine rebounds for Edward
Waters.

Edwards Waters
loses to Lambuth,
44-27

By MIKE BONTS
Sports Editor

Lambuth was victorious
over winless Edward
Waters College on
Saturday. But a pesky
Tigers squad nagged
Lambuth all game before
the Eagles finally pulled
away for a 44-27 football
win on senior day.
EWC (0-8) scored first
when Jordan Brooks
returned the opening
kickoff 90 yards.
Eagles' sophomore quar-
terback Jordan Jackson,
who made his second start
of the season, threw for
155 yards and three
touchdowns while rush-
ing for 65 yards. Jackson
tied the game on a screen
pass to sophomore
Marquis Williams for 15
yards.
But another long Brooks
kickoff return set up the
Tigers in Lambuth territo-
ry, and sophomore run-
ning back Randy Joyner
plunged in from two
yards out for a 14-7 edge.
Lambuth took over from
there, scoring 24 consecu-
tive points with 9:41 left
in the third quarter.
EWC QB Brandon
Turman kept the Tigers
close with two touchdown
passes to Jonathan
Johnson. But Lambuth's
Lawrence Coleman
snatched a 39- yard pass
away from a defender,
and Davis added h is sec-
ond scoring run as
Lambuth pulled away.

Early Learning Coalition of Duval Honored Guiding Stars
Centers with Graduation Ceremony


SONVILLE, Fla.,
On Nov. 3, 2010
Coalition of Duval
(ELC of Duval)
hosted a gradua-
tion ceremony
honoring new and
returning child
I a s care centers partic-
ipating in the
Si... Guiding Stars of
Duval (Guiding
Stars) program.
Over 100 child care center directors, elected officials and local non-profit
partners attended the ceremony recognizing the accomplishments of the 149 early-
learning centers whose directors and staff chose to voluntarily participate in the pro-
gram.
"I am so proud to honor the centers that have shown such dedication to early
learning by participating in the Guiding Stars program," said Susan Main, Executive
Director of ELC of Duval. "These centers have gone the extra mile to receive their
star rating, which is ultimately an investment in the children at their centers.
This program has truly become a community program. It is the foundation for
improving early learning for our children."
Guiding stars, a two-year coaching and support program, transitions child care
centers into early-learning providers so children start learning from the moment they
enter into care. Guest speaker, Mayor John Peyton, commended the providers on their
willingness to create centers dedicated to learning, and he congratulated them for their
achievement.
"It is never too early for children to begin learning the fundamentals of read-
ing," said Peyton. "Guiding Stars of Duval is a critical step in the efforts to enhance
early learning among Jacksonville's children. This program represents a commitment
from our community and those we trust to care for our youngest citizens, and we will
all reap the benefits of their success."
To participate in Guiding Stars, centers voluntarily enter into the program,
funded in part by the City of Jacksonville, through the Jacksonville Children's
Commission, to receive a one- to five- star rating upon completion of the program.
Each star correlates to five areas of early learning including environment, ratio, staff
development, curriculum and program operations/ family involvement. The rating in
each of the five areas, in addition to overall star rating, helps parents choose quality
learning centers for their children.

Duval, call 904-208-2044 or visit www.ChooseQualityChildcare.org.

Homecoming Convocation Speaker Sonia Myles Said
FAMU Saw the Best in Her


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida A&M University (FAMU) Gaither
Gymnasium was full of the real Rattler spirit during the annual Homecoming
Convocation. With more than 3,000 students, alumni, faculty and staff in attendance,
the Rattlers were home.
"We all have a part to play in preserving FAMU," said FAMU President James H.
Ammons.
FAMU alumna Sonia Myles, director for Global Printed Packaging Purchases for
Procter & Gamble, served as keynote speaker.
"Thank you, FAMU you saw the best in me," said Myles.
Myles graduated summa cum laude in 1989 with her bachelor's degree in busi-
ness administration with a concentration in marketing. Myles, who recalled her days as
a student at FAMU, said she spent the best days of her life at the university.
"It has been 25 years and two months since my life has changed forever," the
Michigan native said. "You can accomplish and be and do anything that you set your
mind to. FAMU and that real Rattler spirit will help you achieve the impossible. FAMU
changed our lives and for some of my friends, FAMU saved their lives."
President Ammons awarded Myles with the President's Award.
Myles added that the "real Rattler spirit is a phenomenon" that cannot be
explained.
"I think FAMU gives us three Cs: courage, confidence and charisma," said
Myles. "People know a FAMUan when they see them. There are people not yet born
who are depending on you."
Thomas L. Mitchell Sr., president of the FAMU National Alumni Association,
said it is important for FAMU to continue to survive through its students and alumni.
"Not only do we bleed orange and green, but we breathe orange and green," said
Mitchell. "It is important for all of us to realize that this is an institution that must live
forever. FAMU must live forever."

I'm Just Sayin.....

Find something that represents that
dream in your heart and focus on it
every day. It doesn't matter if it's been
ten years, twenty years, or even thirty
years, God can still bring it to pass.
Maybe you gave up yesterday, but
today is a new day. Today you can stir
it up again. Go out filled with faith and
expectancy, believing that every promise God has
placed in your heart will come to pass!...I'm just
sayin.....
