Shooter told 911 workers were

racist but, he 'handled the problem'
Elena Kagan has just been confirmed as the 4th female
and 112th justice to serve on the Supreme Court,
Obama's second appointment. Senate approved jobs bill
to stop teacher layoffs. Fannie Mae says second quarter
S"Ks losses shrank a lot, reducing the need for taxpayer
money. President Obama signed an historic sentencing
, disparity bill that narrows the crack and power cocaine
sentencing disparity from 100:1 to 18:1, eliminating the
mandatory minimum sentence for simple possession of
Omar Thornton, 34, Conn crack cocaine which is about the number one reason
Omar Thornton, 34, Conn .
blacks have a felony on their records but, there is more
to go to decrease the rate of blacks in prison. We must work on it.
On Wednesday, the president had his 49th birthday and Rush Limbaugh said the day
should not be recognized because 'they' have not seen his birth certificate to actual-
ly know when or where he was bom. On top of that, the first lady is being highly
criticized for taking a vacation at this time and, 'spending money.'
With all of this, it is not difficult to understand that America has work to do, espe-
cially when you see people like Omar Thornton, calling his mother, and telling his
girlfriend a different 'goodbye' their last time together. He even called his mother to
remind her of the suffering he had endured at the beer plant in Hartford, which he
felt was due to his race. Omar Thornton, 34, called 911 after shooting ten co-work-
ers Tuesday, in which eight died, advising them that he was avenging racist treat-
ment, before killing himself.
There is a big difference in this country since Mr. Obama became president. Right
now, most are not recognizing where the country was and how we got to where we
are and the 'hard-earned' improvements made by the president. According to
reports, Blacks approval rating of Mr. Obama is at 88%; whites at 38% and
Hispanics at 54%, but, he keeps on working.
Americans, we must work together or lose it all. The new move is to re-evaluate
the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. What's next?

That's right, they are in suit

new sartorial movement dubbed

Will Wyclef Become
Mr. President?
..


omiger vvyuile .dii
Wyclef Jean submitted his
paperwork Thursday to run for
president of Haiti. The Hip
Hop star was greeted by dozens
of supporters at the election
office who cheered as he
arrived by motorcade in a dark
suit and tie in Port-au-Prince,
Haiti, the capital city that is still
in ruins from the earthquake of
January 12, 2010.
Wyclef was with his wife and
daughter as he turned in his
paper work.
The election is scheduled for
November 28.
Wyclef was born in Haiti but
grew up in Brooklyn, New
York. He became famous
because of his music and raised
about $9 million to help rebuild
after the earthquake.


He's Making it Count!
So Three years ago Farris
Long, a 33 year old
Jacksonville native and
I C a graduate of Samuel
Wolfson High School
mounted a platform in
Brunswick, GA and
declared .to the youth
"YOU ONLY LIVE
ONCE... MAKE IT
COUNT!" From that 3-
Farris Long day youth conference, a
movement was born. Although it started in the
church, his message is reaching far beyond the
church walls. He feels he has been chosen to
make the simple yet profound message of MAKE
IT COUNT, a message of empowerment for
everyone and is now working toward that end
with first time juvenile offenders at the state
attorney's office reminding the young boys and
their parents, "Despite all the hardship that
brought you helplessly to this moment, It's okay
to dream again! Life is too short to dwell on fail-
ures. Learn from them and Make Them Count."
You can have access to Mr. Long through
www.WillYouMakeltCount.com., The Florida
and Georgia Star Newspapers and through his
radio show, "Make it Count" Tuesday and
Thursday at 5 and 9 pm eastern time on
www.enlightenradio.net.

National Night Out Observed
in Duval, Nassau and Glynn
Counties
JSO was joined by 135 local groups as they
observed "National Night Out" on Tuesday.
Duval County's event was kicked off by Sheriff
John Rutherford. He visited several events and
joined 100 children who were members of the
Laurence F. Lee Boys and Girls Club.
National Night Out is designed to heighten
crime and drug prevention awareness; general
support for, and participation in, local anticrime
programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and
police-community partnerships, and send a mes-
sage to criminals letting them know that neigh-
borhoods are organized and fighting back.
Deputies with the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office helped residents learn how to keep their
community safe and in Glynn County, a party
was hosted to raise awareness at the McIntyre
Court housing project, to offer residents a fun,
safe and educational affair.

If It Sounds Like Racism and Acts Like Racism,
Then it Probably is Racism
By Danny J. Bakewell Sr.
NNPA Chairman
Aj


(NNPA) This is America, but you wouldn't think so in light of recent events wherein two high-profile, long serv-
ing African-American congressman have come under attack. They are being dragged through the mud in a rush
to judgment regarding alleged ethics violations. Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-
Calif.) are the accused.
Rep. Rangel has been found guilty by a House ethics subcommittee of violating ethics rules and will face trial
within the next couple of months. He has been under investigation since 2008 due to allegedly using his House
position for financial benefit. Rep. Waters is also under the microscope of the House ethics subcommittee for
allegedly using her congressional authority in a meeting with Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson on behalf of
OneUnited bank, in which her husband owns $250,000 in stock.
It is important that our elected officials, those to whom we give our public trust, be ethically sound, but in this
current spate of accusations, there is something fishy in the proverbial Denmark! As of 2010, there are presently
42 African-American members in the 111th U.S. Congress 41 in the House of Representatives (39 representa-
tives and 2 non-voting delegates) and one in the Senate. The fact is that African-Americans represent only 10 per-
cent of the Congress, and 19 percent (8) are under investigation! This raises the question as to whether or not
Black lawmakers face more scrutiny over allegations of wrongdoing than their White counterparts. We conclude
that if it sounds like racism and acts like racism, then it probably is racism! In America, we need to presume inno-
cence until proven guilty, and we need not be led to judgment.
Congressman Rangel and Congressman Waters are valuable members of the African-American community who
have fought valiantly for our community. The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), therefore,
urges you to stand behind them. We want them to know that we are there for them; that all 200+ NNPA publish-
ers throughout America stand solidly behind them, and urge them to continue on the course and stay strong.
Black publishers are on the way with pen in hand!
History has shown that Black people make no progress in America without a struggle for what is right and good
for the Black community. Many people want to call this situation something other than what it is, but it is racism
at the core. It is daunting, but not surprising that this is the case, but Rep. Rangel and Rep. Waters are far too valu-
able to our community to give up without a fight!

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for oil off the coast, heading to areas
previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared photography. Once oil is found, they radio down
to the 6,000 ships and boats of all sizes that are supporting the cleanup effort and working to collect
the oil. These are thousands of local shrimping and fishing boats organized into task forces and strike
teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized from as far as the Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water mixture from the Gulf. Other methods
have also helped remove millions of additional gallons of oil from the water. We've deployed more than
8 million feet of boom to protect beaches and sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In coordination with the Coast Guard
and local officials, we may suspend operations temporarily but have organized to resume them as soon
as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the spill and on the cleanup, and none of
this will be paid by taxpayers. We will work in the Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We may not
always be perfect but we will do everything we can to make this right.

LUKE WILSON
IS STRAIGHTFORWARD IN MIDDLE MEN!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTO COURTESY OF PARAMOUNT VANTAGE PICTURES


In the early 90's,
the internet was fairly
new and not a general
way of life. The new
Paramount Vantage film
MIDDLE MEN is an
intriguing look based on
a true story how two pals
accidently stumbled upon
a way to make millions
over the net by writing a
computer program that
would allow the customer
to order online with credit
cards. Their model would
eventually become the
standard used by all
venders to sell via the net
their product was internet
porn. Unfortunately, the
two buddies were
drugged out idiots who .
got in way over their
heads when they hooked .
up with a Russian mob -
boss who owned a strip club to supply girls for
their films. They failed to pay up and their shady
attorney hooked them up with a "fix-it" man who
could get their operation rolling smooth and pay
the mob. The "fix-it" man developed a system
where the billing for the porn would be discreet
and the money flowed like water to the tune of
$200 thousand a week. The film's producer
Christopher Mallick clarifies, "This is about real
people, but they are not based on anyone specif-
ically; they're composites of various people I've
encountered throughout my life as well as the
film's writer's made up characters.


Luke Wilson stars as Jack Harris a profes-
sional at fixing problem companies. As the "fix-it"
man for the two buddies, Harris himself gets in
way over his head with the Russian mob. This
may be Wilson's best role yet. His character deals
with a lot of very different personalities with calm
and aplomb. Wilson says, "I do a lot of comedies
and stuff like that so I felt real lucky just to get a
chance to do something like that. You can get
pigeon holed in what roles you play obviously. I
can remember after a few years of working people
would say 'you play a lot of boyfriends' and I
thought I didn't really realize that. I just like to be
productive and stay happy. Yet somebody could


be willing to kind of like
take a chance on me
playing in a different
role. I felt lucky about it."
Are there any particu-
lar genres that Wilson
favors? He responds,
"As a movie goer, I like
every kind. That's why I
liked doing "Vacancy," it
was really fun for me.
When you're making
horror movies, those are
like great actors
because it's difficult to
be acting scared all the
time. Being from Texas
growing up an
Eastwood fan, I've
always wanted to do a
good Western and had
a chance to work on
"3:10 to Yuma." I've
never done a sports
movie which I think
would be really fun."
What did Wilson have to do to get mentally
ready for this role? He smiles, "One of the things
that kind of helped me with the role (then he says
to himself 'you're doing a comedy'), then I said
OK, how do we make this scene funny? I just
thought like this guy is a straight arrow business-
man and one of his qualities is that he never gets
rattled so he handles everybody pretty much the
same. Just like with the internet porn girl, he's
pretty much an A to B type of guy and doesn't get
too emotionally involved."


RYCH MCCAIN'S HOLLYHOOD NOTES!
By Rych McCain/ feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net


FASHION:
LIVE MECHANICS who specialize in trendy fashions for men has
announced their new fall line up for 2010 that is now available for sale online
at www.jackthreads.com .
MUSIC:
LA Rock Band Voxhaul Broadcast are hitting the road to promote their
upcoming full LP release "Timing Is Everything" produced by Grammy win-
ning producer Tom Biller. Atlantic Records rockers Circa Survive will also
embark on a cross-country tour to promote their new release "Blue Sky
Noise." St. Louis rapper Skiddalz will have his song "OMG" featured on the
hot MTV show Jersey Shore on its second episode.
TV:
Actress Regina Hall has joined the cast of the new NBC spinoff Law &
Order: Los Angeles. Our industry sources have leaked info that comic/actor
Mike Epps is having a sit-com developed. Rapper/actor Common has
signed on to join a TV series for AMC called "Hell On Wheels," about the
building of the transcontinental Railroad during the 1860's The CW has a
new TV Show hosted by Louise Roe called Plain Jane.
MOVIES:
Charlie St. Cloud; Universal Pictures in association with Relativity Media,
A Marc Platt Production. Starring Zac Efron, Amanda Crew, Donal Logue
Charlie Tahan with Ray Liotta and Kim Basinger. Directed by Burr Steers.
Screenplay by Craig Pearce and Lewis Colick based on the novel "The
Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud" by Ben Sherwood. Produced by Marc
Platt. This movie has its touching moments but is basically dull. Zac Efron
comes off more like a pretty boy model than a convincing actor. Save this
one for Netflex or cable.
Middle Men; Paramount Vantage Pictures. Starring Luke Wilson, Giovanni
Ribisi, Gabriel Macht, James Caan, Jacinda Barrett, Laura Ramsey, Terry
Crews, Kevin Pollak, Rade Sherbedgia, Robert Forster, Kelsey Grammer,
Jason Antoon and Graham McTavish. Directed by George Gallo. Written by
George Gallo and Andy Weiss. Produced by Christopher Mallick. This film is
a fictionalize look at the beginnings of the internet porn business yet it is
based on true events. Two druggie, wilded-out roommates Wayne (Ribisi)
and Buck (Macht) came up with a way to sell porn over the net by accept-
ing credit cards. Since the technology didn't exist at the time back in the late
80's, early 90's Wayne (a computer wizard) sat down at his computer and in


15 minutes wrote a program that would allow internet credit card transac-
tions to happen. His model became the standard used today. When the two
roomies got in over their heads with a Russian mob boss they called in a "fix-
it" man Jack Harris (Wilson). This movie will keep your attention from begin-
ning to end. The party scenes are great! Go see this one!

ABOUT THE FAIR DISTRICTS INITIATIVES
Congressman John Lewis of Georgia is often called
"one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights L' -

for all Americans, he was arrested 40 times. That
explains why he made a special effort to be in
Jacksonville this past weekend to explain why
Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart and Congresswoman
Corrine Brown have filed a suit to block the so-called
Fair Districts initiatives from appearing on the ballot this
fall in Florida. Congressman Lewis agrees that the pro-
posed 5 and 6 amendments to Florida's constitution Charles Lee Isaiah Rumin. Rodne L. Hr. Sr.
would violate the 15th Amendment to the United States Congressman John Lewis Georgia's 5Sth district, atn

gerrymandered. Now, an effort is being made to again
redraw the districts, taking away the strength of minority

TGnRIo 7Eddie's Old School


By: Lucius Gantt
Some people have said The Gantt Report is to edito-
rial writing what N.W.A was to Hip Hop music. If '
you know what N.W.A. stands for, you would know ",
the group members had a little gangster in them.
Well, gangsters are in the "hood" and The Gantt /
Report does write about activities in Black commu-
nities. Perhaps The Gantt Report is "gangster" com-
pared to the milk sugar, watered down, boot-licking,
hat-in-hand columns penned by many other Black
opinion writers.
And don't forget, both N.W.A. and The Gantt
Report have both made comments about pimps and
whores! We did, however, mention those persons in
different context and for different reasons.
One obvious difference between us is at least two
of the gangster rappers are rich and very famous. The Gantt Report is merely
infamous but widely read anyway.
Dr. Dre and Ice Cube are two former N.W.A members that are now multi-
millionaires. Dre was named "Best Hip Hop Producer of All Time" recently and
Cube has many successful movies and his own TV show on a big cable network.
Dre and Cube deal with millionaires everyday but The Gantt Report deals
with billionaires. I don't have a million or a billion but I do have a brain and I
know that being on the right scene can sometimes result in something special.
One percent of a billion dollars can have you set for life.
Even a wretch like me can be a big dog one day. Biblically speaking,, some-
times the dogs eat what the master eats.
In Mark, Seventh Chapter, the Bible says a Greek woman comes up to Jesus
and asks him to get the devil out of her daughter.
Jesus, a Jew, was meeting with Jews and didn't want to deal with the non-
Jewish woman. Jesus told the woman:
"Let the children first be filled for it is not meet to take the children's bread,
and cast it unto the dogs."
The woman replied:
"Yes, Lord: Yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs."
If you sit at the economic dinner table every day with billionaires, one day a
crumb from the table will fall your way!
You can be a "dog", a gangster, you can be jobless, you can be homeless, you
can be disabled or anything else and still be able to survive and progress if you
do things right and treat people right.
Millionaires and billionaires don't care what kind of raps you rap or what
kind of Black newspaper columns you write, millionaires and billionaires want
to know if you can make them more millions and billions!
That is the reason why talents like Dr. Dre and Ice Cube can be "gangsters"
and still be recognized and successful in the business world.
You can't be scared and get rich! If you're scared of money, stay away from
people that make a lot of it! The Gantt Report "ain't never scared"!
If you want to be a gangster, be a gangster for the people. Love God, love
your neighbors and love yourself (Become a fan of The Gantt Report on
Facebook. Buy Gantt's book "Beast Too: Dead Man Writing" and/or contact
Lucius at www.allworldconsultants.net)

LIFE COACH
Dearest Friend:
When I woke up this morning, the first thing I did was to thank
my Creator for giving me life and breath. I then went into my
kitchen and made myself some fresh blended watermelon juice,
and had some quiet time. This is my morning regimen of self-
care.
You see, the first step to ANY sort of change is to have
GRATITUDE for the exact moment that we stand in now.
Although you are hurting, and filled with doubt and pain about
your past, you can rest in the comfort of now knowing that you
are still alive and filled with purpose. The next step, is to engage
in rituals of self care. What is your self-care ritual? How do you feel when you take
care of yourself? And what about when you don't?
Your challenge today, is to spend 15 minutes worth of quiet time reflecting (and
iournaling) on what you are grateful for. What gratitude do you have toward your-
self? And your loved ones? What about those who have hurt/harmed you? How can
these things lend to your progress in the future?
I would love to have a discussion with you about this and much more, so call me!
Your Life Coach,
Andrea.
P.S. Here is a bit of information related to today's motivation:
* Download/Listen to the song: What I Cannot Change by LeAnn Rimes
* Read the poem: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou
* Say the following Affirmation: "I Am Supported by Life"
* Eat one piece of fresh fruit or a vegetable; taking care of our outer selves aids in
better caring for our inner selves

To retire or not to


retire? That is the


question

By: Jordan Hill


Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell .
and Favre's agent, Bus Cook said Wednesday '
that the veteran quarterback Brett Favre will ii
return to the Minniosta Vikings if he is healthy.
The 40-year-old vet is still nursing his surgi-
cally repaired left ankle. Farve sustained the ,
injury while in the NFC title game against New \
Orleans.
I know it's a decision that he wrestles with,"
Bevell said after a morning practice "He's a
great player. He's a great competition. He mulls
things over. He's an emotional guy. So he thinks
things through long and hard and takes his time
with his decision. So I'm not surprised that
things started to come out. We just have to wait
and see." .
On Tuesday Favre texted some teammates and
Viking officials saying his ankle was not healing like he had hoped and planned to
retire. Favre denied sending any type of message.
Cook told the Associated Press that Farve will visit his surgeon, Dr. Andrews, next
week for an evaluation of his ankle.
Vikings' and sports fans alike will have to wait and see what Farve's next move is.



Green and white for O'Neal


By Jordan Hill

Shaquille O'Neal is the newest member of
the Boston Celtics.
The 7-foot-1, 325 pound center has been
signed to play with the Eastern Conference
champions and is hoping the move will give
him another NBA title.
O'Neal signed a two-year contract with
about 3 million August 4.
The four time NBA Champion player will
end his career playing with the Celtics' tal-
ented "Big Three" players Paul Pierce, Kevin
Garnett and Ray Allen. Not to mention, he
will be playing on a team that has a strong and
rich legacy. Notable players such as Larry
Bird, Bill Russell, John Havlicek and other
basketball stars have had their numbers
retired and hung in honor of their basketball careers. The Celtics, the NBA's most
winningest team 17 championship banners to prove it, will be a team that O'Neal will
be proud to play for.
O'Neal was a first round pick during the 1992 draft out Louisiana State. He has
been on six and has appeared in 15 All-Star games. He is the 5th leading scorer with
28,255 points and 14th in rebounds with 12, 921 in the league's history. He has aver-
aged 24.1 points, 11.0 in rebounds and 2.3 in blocks. O'Neal was also named NBA
MVP in 2000.
O'Neal, 38, joins Pierce, 32, Garnett, 34, Allen 35 and Jermanie O'Neal, 31. This
group of 30 plus star players may be considered too old to play for another champi-
onship but to others, this prime age just represents skill and true appreciation for the
sport.
All five players are signed for two season except Pierce, who has 4 years left on
a deal he signed after the season.
O'Neal is eager to join the Celtics and get the ball rolling on another championship
title.
I am honored to be joining the Celtics," Shaq said in a statement released by the
club. I have played against Paul, Ray, Kevin, Rajon and Jermaine for many years
and it will be great to be able to call them my teammates. I cannot wait to get to
Boston to get started in pursuit of another championship."
Only time will tell what this team of superstars will be able to accomplish during
the regular season.


JacksonvilleJaguars: Alualu

signing calls for another

Oklahoma Drill
By: Mike Bonts

S" Last Sunday night saw the Jacksonville
.v11 '., Jaguars go through the Oklahoma drills and
the Tyson Alualu signing watch was in full
swing, culminating in an agreement.
"I told them just now I was real proud of
the way they came off the ball and that's
r going to pay dividends for the Jaguars in
2010 so I was proud of that, and so a good
nice night to practice," said head coach Jack
Del Rio of the drills. "The first padded prac-
tice and the guys have come out here to
work everyday for the first couple days of
*" camp it's really been a good start."
The drills were delayed by a lightning
storm. But the intensity and energy seemed
to please the head coach.
"I think you can see our offensive line is
stronger. I think we're going to be coming
off the ball and knocking people off the ball
again, and that's where it all starts is in the
Jaguars getting ready for the sea- trenches," said Del Rio.
son during t n trenchess" said Del Rio.
son during training camp. Besides the Oklahoma drill, the biggest
buzz was over the anticipated signing of
Alualu, the Jaguars No. 1 pick in the NFL draft last April. Alualu finally agreed to
a contract that brought him into the three-day-old training camp.
Jacksonville had announced a deal reached with Alualu, a defensive end out of
California and the 10th overall pick, last night. But his agent, Kenny Zuckerman,
said that Alualu hadn't actually signed off on it.
Del Rio said with the signing of Alualu, another Oklahoma drill is in the works to
welcome the top draft choice.
"Oh yeah, he'll definitely have one. In fact he has somebody that's from his neigh-
borhood that has requested an opportunity. So I'm going to honor that request. Vince
Manuwai would like to welcome him. Since they grew up in the same neighborhood
he'd like to welcome him to the NFL, and so they're going to have an Oklahoma
drill," said Del Rio.
PROTECTION KEY FOR GARRARD
With the start of the 2010 Jacksonville Jaguars Training Camp quarterback David
Garrard feels getting adequate protection will be key to his success this season.
"Every quarterback is always going to ask for better protection and that's a must.
We must have better protection from my O-line, from my running backs, fi-om my
receivers running the right routes, breaking routes off, from me getting the ball out
of my hand," Garrard said. "The days of running around and making everybody
miss and running guys over, that's slowly coming to an end. I can do some of those
things but I can't continue to that, taking a pounding every week because when you
turn 32 you start to feel things. You start to feel that age a little bit. "
Garrard was sacked 42 times in 2009 and 2008. He is in his fourth season as starter
and enters season with a streak of 32 consecutive starts, the longest streak in fran-
chise history by a QB.
Garrard will rely on a receiving corps of Mike Thomas, Tiquan Underwood, Jarett
Dillard, and Troy Williamson, all looking to start alongside Mike Sims-Walker.
The Jaguars arc looking for more success than last year's 4th place finish within
the division. Jacksonville went 7-9 with a 3-3 divisional record. They finished last
year 24th in total points scored and total points allowed.
