Robert Wilson of The Gap Band
Dies from Massive Heart Attack
Robert Wilson, 53,
and brother of Charlie
and Ronnie Wilson, all
from the funk and R &
B group, The'Gap Band,
was found dead Sunday
afternoon in his home in
Palmdale,a CA. It is
reported that Robert suf-
oet ilson feared a massive heart
attack. Family was concerned when they didn't hear
from him all day, especially since he usually calls
throughout the day. Wilson was found by his adult son.
The brothers started The Gap Band in the early '70s
while living in Tulsa, OK where they were born and
raised. Robert was known as the godfather of bass gui-
tar.
Robert was scheduled to promote a show in Tulsa

Erykah Badu gets $500 Fine
and Six Months of Probation
R&B singer Erykah Badu
received a $500 fine after
she was cited for disorderly
conduct after a witness
made a sworn complaint
about her removing her
clothes while walking at
the Kennedy Memorial
Park in Dallas where
President John Kennedy
was assassinated in 1963.
Badu performed a
walking striptease at
Kennedy Memorial in Erykah Badu
March of this year for her
music video "Window Seat." She boldly drove her car
downtown Dallas, got out and started her video which
included her walking and taking off her clothes piece
by piece, from her head to her toes, until she was com-
pletely naked. The end shows her pretending to get shot
and falling on the ground.
Several children were among the tourists and pass-
er-byers while the video was being made and parents
didn't like, their children being exposed to this. Erykah
said while being interviewed on a morning radio show
that she was sorry the children were around, but she
was not sorry for the video because it sends out a mes-
sage about evolution.
She also said as she pealed off her clothes, someone
was picking them up and she never got them back.

A MESSAGE FROM SHIRLEY SHERROD

The Florida Star,


Back in March, Idelivered a speech to an NAACP Freedom Fund banquet in my home state
of Georgia. I drew on my personal life story to urge poor people, white and black, to pull
together and overcome racial divisions. We have to understand that our struggle is against
poverty and against those who are blocking our path out of poverty.
Unless we figure this out, I warned, our communities won't thrive and our children won't pros-
per.
Shirley Sherrod As you know, a Tea Party blogger named Andrew Breitbart released an intentionally deceptive,
heavily edited clip from that speech to make it look as if I was delivering exactly the opposite
message. Then Fox News blasted that false message across America's airwaves, creating a firestorm that led to my ouster
as the USDA State Director here in Georgia.
Not long ago, 1 sat here in my living room in Albany, Georgia for an afternoon of deep conversation with NAACP President
Benjamin Jealous. As he has done in public,'Ben movingly apologized for the fact that the NAACP was initially hood-
winked by Breitbart and Fox into supporting my removal. I told him what I want to tell you.
That's behind us, and the last thing I want to see happen is for my situation to weaken support for the NAACP. Too many
people confronted by racism and poverty count on the NAACP to be there for them, especially those in rural areas who
often have nowhere else to turn.
People ask me, "Shirley, how are you getting through all of this?" I tell them that, if they knew what I have lived through,
they'd understand that these current challenges aren't about to throw me off course.
When 1 was 17 years old, my father was murdered by a white-man in Baker County, Georgia. There were three witness-
es, but the grand jury refused to indict the person responsible. I knew I had to do something in answer to my father's death.
That very night, I made a coipmitment that I would stay in the South and fight for change.
I have lived true to that commitment for 45 years. I didn't yield when, just months after my father was killed, they came
in tle middle of the night to burn a cross in front of our house with my mother, four sisters, and the baby brother my father
never got to see still inside.
And I'm surely not going to yield because some Tea Party agitator sat at his computer and turned everything I said upside
down and inside out.
I learned a lot of lessons from my parents growing up, but one of the most important ones is what my mother taught her
children after our father was killed. She told us we mustn't try to live with hate in our hearts.
My mother led by example. Just 11 years after that cross-burning incident, she became the first black elected official in
Baker County, and she's still serving, still working to bring people together.
You and I have to keep working as well. Change has to start with us. I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of sup-
port I have received over these last few weeks. It means so much to me and my family.
But you and 1 have to make sure that people all across the country who wage a daily struggle against poverty and racism
have support networks as well. And that's why your personal involvement in sustaining the NAACP is so critical.
The NAACP confronts the virulent racism that my family and so many other families have had to endure. But it is also
leading the way in breaking down the structural barriers that block so many people's paths out of poverty.
In our struggle between the "haves" and the "have-nots," they want to keep the poor divided and we have to insist, by
our words and our actions, that there is no difference between us.
As we move forward together, I urge you to remember this: Life is a grindstone. But whether it grinds us down or polish-
es us up depends on us.
Thank you for all you are doing to challenge poverty and racism. I look forward to working and struggling right by your
side.
Sincerely, Shirley Sherrod

Reinstatement vs. Reenactment
The history of Jacksonville, Florida and it's political connections often places a dark cloud of sus-
picion on the outcomes of the Mayor's, Sheriff's, State Attorney's and even arbitrators as it relates to
decisions that impact citizens of Jacksonville. Not that the Sheriff needs or desires an endorsement
from the Jacksonville Leadership Coalition, but Sheriff Rutherford was absolutely correct in releas-
ing the Officers involved in incident at the Duval Regional Juvenile Detention Center. The arbitra-
tion by William Scheu and comments of "manifestly uhjust" is to say that it was not clear or evidence
did not show plainly nor was it proven... wait, was it not proven that they stumped, kicked, hit and
beat young children/teenagers who had surrendered and were in a nn-threatening posture on video?
Now on the outside looking in, this is our political season, William Sheu is a Republican insider, so
he reinstates through arbitration and the Sheriff who is running for office again makes his stand of
what was manifestly just in the firing, but it becomes a win-win situation. Oh no, they would never
do that. The Sheriff looks good for taking his "(could be declared a grand stand)" and William Sheu
takes a "(grand stand for the fraternal order of police department) and the officers are reinstated.. Is
this reinstatement vs. reenactment? However, let's give everyone the benefit of the doubt. Sheriff
Rutherford you are absolutely correct in that they should have been fired. William Scheu you are
absolutely correct in that they should be reinstated if the training manual and guidelines were not fol-
lowed. But were is the "common sense manifesto and justice for the teenagers who were beaten,
kicked, and stumped as a result of being in a submissive position. The Sheriff is right in that he does
have an obligation to the entire community to hold officers "accountable for their actions, and what
happen went too far for just a suspension." Click..., is this what happens when political insiders get
to arbitrate controversial cases? Why didn't the Human Rights Commission step in on this case? Is it
because the Human Rights Commission Chair, recommended William Scheu to be the Supervisor of
Elections in 2004 when we had such great controversy. The only justice those teenagers and parents
will get is if they file a legal lawsuit in Federal Court and ask for an independent Justice Department
Investigation. So, taking the politics out of the decision, Sheriff Rutherford is absolutely correct and
should be commended for his stance. But if the politics is involved, we are back to reenactment of
the pass, "no equal justice for all." No wait, the "manifestly unjust", it was a technicality of the man-
ifesto of the training manual. Since they were not trained properly, they have a right as adult human
beings to go into a room that was submissive and because they were angry to abuse the young people
who were handcuffed, defenseless and in a submissive posture. What this really tells the community
is that even when it is caught on the camera "just like the case in California of the man being shot in
his back or the 42 shots into the car and surrounding area on Baymeadow Road and the little boy being
shot, it is a manifestly unjust incident that needs to be investigated by the J.ustice Departtent. Is this
reinstatement or reenactment of the distorted facts that provide for results that are .not just? Just 1my
opinion, what is yours? No matter how you look at it, it does not look good to the community. When
you were a child you should act as a child, but when you became an adult, you should act as an adult.
Congratulations, to the Officers reinstated, but you are held to a higher standard, act like an adult, my
grandmother use to always say, "Never hit a Child when you are angry, you might hurt them and get
yourself in trouble."
Chairman Jacksonville Leadership Coalition, R. L Guind)

NAACP
The Florida Star,
I have a dream.
Those are four of the most important words in our
nation's history. And on August 28th, the NAACP will
commemorate the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther
King Jr.'s March on Washington with a new set of
words your words.
We are launching a project to gather stories from
this momentous event stories from people who
remember hearing Dr. King's speech and stories of
young people who have inherited the legacy of the
civil rights movement.'
This is a first-of-its-kind social media history of
the civil rights movement. You can start participating
now by completing these two steps:
1. Share your own story on the NAACP site:
How has Dr. King's speech affected you? Whether
you were present when Martin Luther King spoke or
are part of the next generation inspired by his vision,
we want to hear from you:
http://action.naacp.org/LegacyStory
2. Encourage your family and friends to share
their stories:
It's as easy as posting the following question to your
Facebook or Twitter account: "Where were you on
August 28, 1963, when MLK gave his 'I have a dream'
speech?" Or just send an email including that question
to your friends and family. Whatever you choose, be
sure to upload their responses to our site:
http://action.naacp.org/MoreLegacyStories
In the decades that have passed since Martin
Luther King's speech, we have experienced both
important strides forward and difficult setbacks.
Through it all, Dr. King's words have carried us on,
and they will continue to resonate for generations to
come.
On Tuesday, Shirley Sherrod commemorated Dr.
King's legacy by reiterating her commitment to work-
ing together. You can build on this moment with your
own thoughts and' visions by sharing your story with
the NAACP.
Thank you for taking a moment to speak out.

I am from Louisiana and I know our beaches are our home,
our way of life and our livelihood, Protecting the coast and
cleaning up the beaches is very personal to me.

Making This Right


Beaches

At BP, we have taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes keeping
you informed.

Looking For Oil
You may have heard oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf, but our work on the beaches continues.
When oil is spotted, the Response Command Center is notified, a Shore Cleanup Assessment
Team is mobilized and work begins immediately. Efforts are being coordinated from staging
areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida,

If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a team to clean it up.

Cleaning Up The Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the size of the affected
area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds, and thousands of additional workers remain
on-call. Working with the Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil
has been removed.

Our Responsibility
Our beach operations will continue until the last of the oil has been skimmed from the sea, the
beaches and estuaries have been cleaned up, and the region has been pronounced oil-free.
We have already spent more than $3.9 billion responding to the spill and on the cleanup, and
none of this will be paid by taxpayers.

Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not always be perfect,
but we will do everything we can to make this right.

TERRY CREWS

BIG BETWEEN THE PUNCHES AND
BY RYCH MCCAIN/FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTO COURTESY OF BET


THE LAUGHS!


On the surface, actor Terry Crews can be a bit intimi-
dating because of his muscle bound, fit physic and the
tough guy roles he has become known for but in reality the
man is as for real and cordial as it gets. However, he still
can get down if he has to. Crews currently has an incredi-
ble "three" movies out at the same time on the big screen
i.e., "The Expendables," an action packed saga loaded
with tough-as-nails super heroes; "Middle Men," the story
about the birth of porno sales over the internet and
"Lottery Ticket," an urban comedy that Crews' character
:"Jimmy The Driver" will surprise you. Crews has just
come off of a successful season for his hit BET reality
series "The Family Crews," where BET has ordered a sec-
ond season. And if that is not enough, Crews also stars on
the TBS comedy series "Are We There Yet"?
Fans of the hit comedy "Everybody Hates Chris" know
Crews as the family patriarch. He has made the rounds
with appearances on various TV shows such as "Harsh
Times," "Inland Empire" and appeared in films such as
"Friday After Next," "White Chicks," and "Malibu's Most
Wanted" to name some. Crews is a native of Flint,
Michigan where he was a standout art student winning an
Art Excellence Scholarship to attend the Interlochen
Center for the Arts and then matriculated to Western
Michigan University where he earned all-conference hon-
ors as a defensive end. He was drafted by the LA Rams and
spent six seasons in the NFL playing for the Rams,
Chargers, Redskins and Eagles. After he retired from football, Crews set his sights
on acting and as they say, the rest is history!
With release of "The Expendables" Crews has become a certified super-hero.



RYCH MCCAIN'S HOLLYHOOD

NOTES!
By Rych McCain/ feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net


With a set filled with rough and tough men ready to rip
heads off, what was the craziest stunt he performed on set?
Crews reflects, "The craziest thing we had to do? I literally
S. threw a bomb up into the air and Stallone shot it and it let
off this huge explosion. That's what happened in the movie
and we jumped from it and the whole thing and we get away
all cool and calm. But I swear, when that bomb went off, and
it was a real bomb, I couldn't believe the shock wave that
went through my body and the heat that I felt, I had to check
to make sure I still had eyebrows. I'm not lying. I was touch-
ing my face because I felt the fire go right through me. Then
the guy looked at me and said 'Terry there's no such thing
as movie fire, its all real fire.'"
When asked about Stallone picking him for this role
Crews was nervous and there are the naysayers but as far as
him being a super-hero he says, "Hold up, Stallone says I'm
one, so I guess I am." Stallone has future plans for Crews to
continue in the super-hero genre. Crews says he has been
waiting for an opportunity like this and he is ready! When
asked about the competition on the set of so many macho
men Crews lights up, "I had a lot of military guys were like
hey wait a minute, his outfit is sleeveless, they wouldn't go
sleeveless. I was like hey man you just take care of your
part. I said I gotta show my guns (big arms). I'm showing
off my best assets here. When you have guys like this, it
offers a challenge and this is the fun part; taking it to anoth-
er notch to see where you fit in. I was really there to learn
but I was also there to take my place. It was one of those things where you can't
shrink back in a cast like this or you are just going to disappear and I was not going
to disappear. That's what Stallone wanted and he had a healthy rivalry."


HBO Special:
Five years following the after-
math of Hurricane Katrina, film

New Orleans and the more recent

Saints Superbowl win and the gulf oil
spill. The special will air in two parts

NAACP, Bishop Vaughn McLaughin, Ken Johnson National Primitive Baptist Convention address with her husband Mr. Lorenzo Alexander
and Elder Lee E. Harris Vice President
(Representing Congresslady Corrine Brown) and Elder Lee E. Harris Vice President

It has been almost fifty years since the National Primitive Baptist Convention has been held in Jacksonville. Yet, about 1,000 members
of the organization came to Jacksonville and held their 103rd Annual Session at the Hvatt Regency Riverfront Hotel from August 14
through August 20. The convention attendees led by the national president, Elder Dr. Ernest Ferrel, focused on the power of faith, prayer
and courage.
On Saturday, there was an unforgettable gospel extravaganza featuring Southeastern Region Mass Choir under the direction of Elder
Chester Brown and on Sunday, students were awarded scholarships. Dr. Frederick Humphries, President Emeritus of Florida A&M
University, was the feature speaker at the banquet and on Monday, the Annual Mother Joyce Perkins Memorial Scholarship Youth
Luncheon was held.
To welcome the many visitors to the area were State Senator Tony Hill, State Representative Audrey Gibson and City Councilman
Warren Jones. U. S. Congresslady Corrine Brown was represented by her aide, Ken Johnson, as he presented plaques and other certifi-
cates to the visitors and to Elder Lee Harris, who is a 'landmark' in Jacksonvilie as pastor of Mt. Olive Primitive Baptist Church. Some
others joining in to welcome the visitors were Isaiah Rumlin President of the Jacksonville
NAACP, Drs. James Sampson, president of the Florida Baptist General Convention
Elder Dr. F. R. Rush, President, Florida State P.B. Convention and Elder Darrell osp's rmaStorytll
Harrison, president of Georgia State P.B. Convention. .aSps asdegS ryteucr
This most organized function, led by Elder Lee Harris, Vice President of the South East
Region, also, included a Holy Communion and Feet Washing Worship Service, ending
Friday evening with the Women's Congress Education Program and a King and Queen
contest featuring a one hundred dollar march.
The Convention Close-out Worship Service's speaker was Dr. Bernard Yates of
Pensacola, Florida.
It is believed that Elder Dr. Ferrell and those visiting the area, felt the warmth and love
of Florida and Georgia convention leaders as well as the citizensso it won't take fifty years
for them to return.

Kendrick B. Meek

Throughout my life I have had many obstacles to overcome. From being
raised by a single mother and two sisters to dealing with dyslexia, I know all
too well that perseverance, a strong will and determination are all needed in
order to succeed and achieve all of your goals. At an early age my mother,
retired Congresswoman Carrie P. Meek, stood strong as my mentor and role
model. Before her election to Congress, my
mother was a member of the Florida
House of Representatives and the Florida
Senate, where she chaired the Education
Appropriations Subcommittee and estab-
lished herself as a skilled debater and one
of the Legislature's most effective mem-
bers. One of my most memorable moments
was helping my mother as a 12-year-old by
painting campaign signs at the kitchen
table.
Knowing that my own mother was the first
African-American elected to Congress
from Florida since Reconstruction, I was
assured that one day I would follow her
footsteps within the public service arena.
Now, I am running for the United States
Senate. Once I become Florida's next U.S.
Senator, I will in turn be Florida's first
African-American elected to the Senate from Florida.
There's nothing like the joy that comes from helping others in need. Public
service is a legacy I learned from my mom, and I hope to pass on to my own
kids. Whether it's making sure students can learn or reworking mortgages
to keep families in their homes, it's my privilege to fight for the people of
Florida, and it's a fight I look forward to continuing in the United States
Senate. I've fought all kinds of adversities throughout my life and career--
becoming Florida's first African-American United States Senator is one feat
I am sure to accomplish with the help of my supporters throughout Florida.

On the day of his crucifixion. Jesus Chl-ist torga\ e the
people that nailed him to the cross. Martin Luther
King Junior forgave the people that beat him and
jailed him for participating in non-violent civil rights
protests and every day spouses, family members and
friends forgive each other for our transgressions.
However, the devilish, atheist leadership of the
organization called People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals (PETA) plan to hate football player Michael Vick for life!
PETA,.with encouragement from biased sports writers and broadcasters, plan
to stage protests at NFL stadiums and games if Michael Vick is allowed to work
in the professional football league.
Vick was charged with being involved in dog fighting and sentenced to about
two years in federal prison. After serving part of his sentence under house arrest
in Virginia, Vick will be free to resume his life in late July 2009.
America is a "free" country and anybody can protest almost any thing but
Vick's treatment by haters spreads way past professional sports.
Everybody in America that is Black has either been to jail, has a family mem-
ber that has been locked up or a friend or neighbor that has been incarcerated.
Many African Americans that have served time in jail find it extremely difficult to
get a job anywhere. Government won't hire offenders, schools won't hire offend-
ers, banks won't hire offenders and many other employers use jail time to deny
people opportunities to work.
If people in jail should be hated and shunned, I wouldn't have a single hero
because Jesus, MLK, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Angela Davis, Nelson Mandela,
Andrew Young, Rap Brown, Huey Newton and many other great Black men and
women have spent time behind bars.
If the National Football League refuses to allow Michael Vick and opportuni-
ty to seek a professional football job, the NFL would be the most hypocritical
league in pro sports!
Michael Vick is not the only pro football player that has viewed or been
involved in dog fighting and he's not the only NFL person that has killed animals.
There is more than one person that has an NFL contract right now that has killed
human beings in alcohol related car crashes. There are hordes of NFL players that
have committed domestic violence. Every month there is an NFL player accused
of drug use or substance abuse.
No disrespect but it seems to me it's always cool for white folks to remember
but the rules are different for us. PETA won't forget Vick and dog fighting, Jews
will never forget the Holocaust, Cubans won't forget refugees and boat lifts,
Hawaiians won't forget Pearl Harbor and Indians won't forget Little Big Horn but
if we mention slavery, we're playing the race card. We should forget the days of
slavery, the Bermuda Triangle, Jim Crow and all of the oppression and exploita-
tion we've suffered.
We should even forget how white racists and white colonialists routinely
ordered dogs to attack women, children and babies, along with men, of color in
almost every part of the world when Black people sought equal rights and justice.
If the NFL refuses to give Vick a chance to go back to work because of protests
from misguided and opportunistic PETA members, Blacks that want fairness
should boycott the NFL and every sponsor the.National Football League has.
Don't do it for Vick, do it for your family and friends that can't get a job
because they did jail time even if they were "over charged" and arrested on false
charges

before doing any ab exercises.
1. Lay on back, legs bent at knees with feet flat on the floor. Hands on temples,
raise shoulders about 4 to 5 inches off floor, hold for a second then back to start-
ing position. Repeat 20 to 30 reps, 5 sets.
2. Lay on back, legs bent at knees with feet flat on floor, hands placed on temples
or behind head. If placed behind head, do not pull head, your hands are only there
for balance. With your back on the floor, bring your right elbow up and over to
your left knee then back down, next bring your left elbow to your right knee then
back down. You aren't touching the knee, you should just be bringing your elbow
across. You should automatically go back to starting position, as you make one
cross over to the next. Repeat 30 to 50 reps, 5 sets.

Did You Hear About?...







Jacksomnve Shes Office
SCAM ALERT
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has identified a
scam that has been targeting Jacksonville residents. At
this time we believe to have at least eleven cases iden-
tified with the same method of operation.
The unknown suspects are targeting individuals in
parking lots of local stores and restaurants. An individ-
ual approaches them and tells them they found a bag of
money. They ask them if they want to split it. When the
victim agrees the suspects) tells them they need
money as collateral. The victims go and retrieve large
sums of money out of the bank and give it to the sus-
pects. The suspects then say they will come back with
their share and never return.
The total loss between the 11 identified victims is
over $60,000.
At this time we believe there are a minimum of 4 sus-
pects working this scam.
Anyone who has been a victim of this scam and has not reported it is asked
to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Anyone with any information about these scams or knows the identity or
locations of the suspects is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-
630-0500 or e-mail us at JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and
receive a possible reward, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS or e-mail

Crimes Around the Neighborhood
Andrew Wayne King has been arrested for the murder of Felicia Burney and
her unborn child.
On June 8, 2010 officers were dispatched to 8300 Berry Avenue to investi-
gate a dead body. The 23 year old victim, Felicia Burney, 23 years old was found
deceased inside the residence. The victim was 35 weeks pregnant. The victim had
been sharing the residence with the suspect's girlfriend. On June 9, 2010, the
Medical Examiner's Office performed an autopsy on the victim. The cause of death
was determined to be stab wounds of the neck and chest and the manner of death
was ruled a homicide.
On June 10, 2010, the Medical Examiner's Office performed an autopsy on
the victim's fetus. The cause of death was determined to be intrauterine fetal demise
from the maternal homicidal trauma. The manner of death for the fetus was deter-
mined as a homicide.
Investigation revealed that the suspect thought the victim had been interfer-
ing with the suspect's relationship with his girlfriend. The suspect had been acting
hostile towards the victim and she had been in fear for her life because of his
aggressive behavior.
During the hours before the murder, the suspect was standing outside in
front of the victim's house, walking up and down the street, and attempting to make
contact with his girlfriend, who was inside the house with the victim.
The residence had been unlawfully entered, but there were no signs of
forced entry. The suspect had been in possession of a set of the house keys. In the
hours before the victim was murdered, the suspect claimed to have returned the
keys but the keys were never found.
The keys were later found inside the crime scene near the back door which
is believed to be the suspect's point of entry. Evidence collected at the scene used
in connection with the victim's murder was submitted to the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE) for DNA analysis.
On August I received notification from the FDLE Biology Section which
indicated DNA was recovered from the items collected at the scene. The DNA
recovered from the items was compared to a DNA sample obtained from the defen-
dant. FDLE determined the DNA recovered on the items collected from the scene
matched the DNA collected from the defendant.
The suspect was interviewed the day of the murder and denied killing the
victim. The suspect claimed he returned the house keys.
The suspect unlawfully entered the residence with intent to kill and was
armed with a knife. The victim had been stabbed to death and the unborn child died
as a direct result of the maternal death. The suspect was charged with two counts
of murder and one count of Armed Burglary.
The suspect in jail.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, The National Association of Drug
Diversion Investigators (NADDI) and Walgreens Corporation have partnered with
the Florida Office of Drug Control and the National Family Partnership to organ-
ize a Drug Take-Back Event.
The reason for this event is to remove access to drugs that may potentially
become abused by friends, family and others. According to the Office of Drug
Control; pain killers and sedatives are responsible for killing more Floridians than
all illicit drugs combined and prescription drug abuse poses the single greatest
threat to the health and safety of Floridians.
On Saturday, August 21, 2010 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at four partici-
pating Walgreens locations in Jacksonville will be
participating in the drop off event. We are asking
members of the Jacksonville community to come
forward and participate by bringing in unused med-
ications and prescriptions so they can be disposed of
properly. Walgreens will provide the first 400 partic-


ipants at each store 15% off gift coupons for eligible
store items.
The Walgreens locations participating are:

Four-time track )Olmrpian Debbie Ferguson and record-set-
ting quarterback Eric Zeier have been chosen for induction into
the University of Georgia's Circle of Honor one of the school's
highest tributes paid to former athletes and coaches.
Ferguson and Zeier will be honored at an induction banquet
on Friday, Sept. 17, at the Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall, where
they will be permanently enshrined in the Circle of Honor exhib-
it. They also will be recognized at the Georgia-Arkansas football
game on Saturday, Sept. 18.
The all-sports recognition program is designed to recognize
and pay tribute to extraordinary student-athletes and coaches
who by their performance and conduct have brought honor to the
university and themselves, and who by their actions have con-
tributed to the tradition of the Georgia Bulldogs. The criteria also
stipulate that each recipient has earned his or her academic
degree.
During her Georgia career, Ferguson won four individual
national titles the 1996 200-meter dash and the 1999 60-meters
dash indoors and the 1998 100- and 200- meter races outdoors.
A 20-time All-American, she won the 1999 Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Award as the nation's top collegiate performer. Ferguson was
the Commissioner's Cup winner as the high point performer at
the 1999 SEC Outdoor Championships after setting conference
records in taking the 100- and 200-meter races. She was an
eight-time SEC champion, earning
SEC Athlete of the Year honors in
1998 and 1999. Ferguson still
holds six school records.
At the time of his graduation,
Zeier was the most prolific quarter-

STUDENTS YOUR DELIVERANCE IS IN YOUR HANDS


Students your
goal is to graduate
from High School, no
matter what grade you
are in, no matter your
current academic or
socioeconomic status.
Your Deliverance Is In
Your Hands. How is it
in your hands, just
evaluate your priori-
ties.


1. I
'.a


This new academic year students
must understand that there is more to
them than just assessment scores. To
prove testing scores do not truly repre-
sent student achie ement this is a time
for unification of parents, teachers and
administrators. There is no need for
blame, demotions, or ridicule; the time
now is for unification with a common
mission; the education of all our children
and to show academic growth not stag-
nation, decline anddenial. Personally I
feel our students can do better as a
teapherwith 24 year. I would like all stu-
dents who were faced with the dropping
of their school or personal grade to
know, do not allow your academic
progress to be based on one test. Look at
your growth in your classroom and con-
tinue to improve on AYP (Annual Yearly
Progress). Students have an anointing
that can overcome any challenge, but in
ordlt for this': tinanifest itself they must
believe in themselves. Take the neces-
sary steps to prove you are a success.
Students you have to believe in
your abilities and know that Your
Deliverance Is In Your Hands.
This blog is motivated by my
Pastor and his teaching, Rev. Timothy
Cole, Sr. of West Friendship Baptist
Church. Students your anointing is not in
material things that you have and your
purchases. The purchases that you make
are allowing others to benefit financially,
your success comes from academic
growth and not in your outerwear.
Showing how much money your parents
spend to make other people look good
places more value on your outward
appearance than your willingness to
work hard for academic success. There
are too many students w'ho are dressed
with expensive clothes, but not on grade
level in reading and math. Parents should
refocus the value of school not as a
social scene, in the immortal words of
Carter G.. Woodson. an educated man
(woman) is a better laborer (worker),
than an ignorant one. Parents should
focus education as a principal to success
in life not as a secondary issue.


My young broth-
ers what are your plans
for each day to benefit
Your success in aca-
S '. demics? Are you
', "i t '
';i ', going to hang out on
,'' the corer with your
S .,, boys wasting another
day skipping class?
Are you going to
smoke weed and get high for the day?
Are you going to try and skeet some cat
and risk HIV or other STD's. Do you
plan on continuing to waste your life and
blame everyone else for your challenges.
and become a liability for society? My
young sister's is your day any better? Do
you plan on demeaning yourself with
unprotected sex by men who do not care
about you, trying to impregnate you with
words like ho*, slut, bit**. Young ladies
what excites you today; getting a new
weave and new nails? You may look
good and smell good, but are you mar-
ketable to elevate yourself to get a job,
can you enter into higher education (col-
lege) with a good GPA?
All these should be taken into
consideration my sisters and brothers.
Your life needs to be reevaluated so you
can change a legacy of potential poverty,
pregnancy and domestic neglect or vio-
lence and high school dropout.
Young men and women, all these
things need to be considered, to value
education and truly work,to a future in
business, finance, education, science, or
politics. We are in a global economic
society, the sky is the limit, but you first
must value yourself and value education.
Students should be empowered with the
knowledge that no matter the social chal-
lenges that they have the situation does
not define them. It is not permanent and
can be overcome, it takes you delivering
yourself through hard work and educa-
tion just as Principal Maxey of Raines
High School has stated many times.
As an educator here in DCPS my respon-
sibility as my peers, administrators and
support personnel extends to showing
young people their gifts that are
ingrained in them. To speak positively in
their lives when others curse and demean
them. Many young people because of the
distractions of music, drugs, sex, and
societal challenges sometimes do not
recognize what is before them or in
them, the power they have in controlling
their destinies. We as models for our
community must continue to show
young people that in order for their gifts


n~mr~


to manifest themselves they have to have
a vision and faith in their anointed gifts.
talents and skills. Our young people
must be reminded at the start of this
school year not to let situations, circum-
stances, and small minded people keep
them from success. Ministerial leaders
must pray over students and anoint them
with oil and congregational prayers not
just for success on tests, but throughout
the school year and through to gradua-
tion. Our City Counsel members must
put aside their political agendas and
encourage the youth in their. districts.
The political leadership of our communi-
ties needs to talk to our young ladies and
men about their futures now instead of
waiting for election time to get sound
bytes and feel good pictures. Many of
our young people claim to want to be in
business, scientists, teachers, lawyers,
doctors, pilots and enlist in the military,
but what kind of people are they hanging
out with? Are they involved with busi-
ness minded people in groups such as E3
Business Group are they participating in
the Boys and Girls Clubs who encourage
business growth by partnering with Taco
Bells recent Graduate To Go Business
Camp. Our young people are the future
Microsoft, Apple, Google, Yahoo,
Mozilla developers. Students seeking to
participate in internships need our local
business leaders opening their doors to
young people like the ACLU Northeast
Florida which encourages internships.
Students need to be embraced and men-
tored as in the case of E3 Business
Group, Boys and Girls Club, Bridges of
Northeast Florida, ACLU and the oppor-
tunities presented to young men ages I 1
to 18 in the upcoming Boys2Men
Symposium in Jacksonville, Florida that
will be held on Saturday, October 2nd.
2010. Churches should be making
arrangements for their young men to
attend instead of claiming monetary
challenges, but claiming that faith can
move mountains. Jesus feed over five
thousand with bread and fish, our
churches continue to feed our young
peoples minds and intellects by getting
involved in community events like the
Boys2Men Symposium.
The power of life and death, suc-
cess and failure is in the tongue, we
should build up not tear down our young
people with positive and encouraging
words. Dr. Amy Lingren a district
administrator and former Principal once

commented that our students are so capa-
ble and talented we as educators need to
show them the right way and not to write
them off especially when they do not see
their own potential. Even up and coming
administrators as Mr. Daryl Hill former
Behavior Specialist now Vice Principal
works tirelessly being a positive force in
young people through his community
business interests and position within the
school system. The commitment resides
with administrators who can motivate
their teachers, staff and excite parents to
learning. The deliverance from academic
failure, performing below grade level.
academic retention, and dropping out
should be a thing of the past. Parents
don't let athletic events be the highlight
of the week. Highlight a reading night, a
math night, and family night. Plan to
attend Open House. School Board meet-
ings, PTO/PTA meetings and School
Advisory Groups to have a say in
how schools are managed. Students
doh't blame teachers, administrators,
family or friends for your actions.
Your Deliverance Is In Your Hands.
Don't make excuses because in the
middle of EXCUSES is U so move
from excuse to SUCCESS. Pastor
Torin Dailey of First Baptist Church of
Oakland believes in students at his
church, and the mission of service.
"The Oak" has completed another
successful back to school celebra-
tion "Youth Explosion 2010" for the
families not just of "The First Baptist

surrounding communities. This is a

I pride myself in being able to recognize the best
in others. I see it as a testament of my taste
level. I can't express the importance of sur-
rounding yourself with energy that supports
your goals. I've had to separate from family,
close friends, and negative people. It wasn't
easy but necessary. If you know you're the best
it makes sense to be around the best No excep-
tions.
I'm just sayin.........

SERVING THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA'S THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT


"STILL THE RIGHT CHOICE"


pC ''


-.|


U.S. CONGRESSWOMAN

CORRINE BROWN


"STILL THE RIGHT CHOICE"
The slogan Corrine Delivers is not just campaign hype it's a cold hard fact.
No other member of Congress from the state of Florida has secured more funds for this state than
Corrine Brown. According to the bi-partisan group Taxpayers for Common Sense in just the
past three budgets alone Corrine Brown has helped secure more than $660 million for projects
in the Sunshine State. Nobody else in North Florida was even close.

In 2010 while some people were busy thinking up ways to unseat her;
Congresswoman Corrine Brown was busy taking care of business.
She was bringing in nearly $660 million to the state of Florida for a new VA hospital to treat
our military veterans, upgrading our local colleges and universities and new programs for
our senior citizens. Congresswoman Brown is the Third Congressional member in the
nation in bringing home money.

Year after Year, Corrine Brown Delivers for you.
M_


There's no doubt -

Corrine Brown still the right choice.


There's no doubt Corrine Delivers for Florida. Corrine-Brown
- still the right choice. President Bill Clinton once said of Corrine
Brown that if he saw her coming, he just would say yes to what-
ever she wanted because arguing with her was useless. So what
is it about Congresswoman Brown that sets her apart from the
others? Why is Corrine Brown a successful leader year after year
serving in the U.S. Congress? Here's what she says: "Serving the
people is my passion! Having served Florida's 3rd Congressional
District for the past eighteen years, I know my record stands out
among all of the candidates. I believe my record of not just talk-
ing about Florida's needs, but of delivering for Florida is what
best prepares me to return to Congress to represent my great con-
stituents. In Washington, I've served 18 years on the Trans-
portation Committee where I am Chair of the Subcommittee on
Rail, Pipelines, and Hazardbus Materials. In this leadership role,
I have jurisdiction over all matters relating to freight railroads;
passenger rail service, including Amtrak; high-speed rail systems;
railroad labor, railroad retirement; railroad workers' compensa-
tion; and railroad unemployment insurance as well as measures
relating to the transportation of hazardous materials and pipeline
transportation (safety and economic regulation). On the Veter-
ans Committee, I've risen to the # 2 position on the committee
and serve on the important Health Subcommittee."


Congresswoman Brown, whose number one priority is jobs,
knows that speed rail could be a boom for jobs and the overall
economy for Florida. Federal dollars and local voters say, "Let's
go," but moving forward on the high speed rail front requires dili-
gent daily hard work. The diligent work is true with each crucial
issue. Whether it's about getting stimulus dollars into her dis-
trict, bringing home Florida's fair share of tax dollars, working
with labor and business to create new jobs, or working for a sin-
gle constituent, Congresswoman Brown never tires of fighting
for the people of the 3rd Congressional District. She says of her
constituents, "Their issues such as jobs, health care, education,
families, social security, veterans, military, transportation, clean
energy technologies, ports, roads, and railroads are my issues.
I'm fighting for good jobs for my district every day. I've estab-
lished a solid record of delivering for Florida during my 10 years
in the Florida House and 18 years in Congress."

Without question, Corrine Brown is a hard worker, a fighter, and
a determined negotiator with proven delivery skills who has
helped create tens of thousands of good paying jobs, improved
education by hiring more teachers and reducing class sizes,
worked to get the COPS program to Florida with an additional
100,000 cops, and passed the largest increase in veterans' health
care in the history of the United States. And on military issues,
she's equally tough. "I've fought to keep Florida's military bases
open, and I will continue to fight for a strong military presence in

Florida", says the Congresswoman. "I believe my record of not
just talking about Florida's needs, but of delivering for Florida is
what best qualifies me to continue representing Florida's 3rd Con-
gressional District.. For years, Florida has been a donor state to
the Highway Trust Fund and Airport Improvement Program. I
was a leader in the fight to change transportation funding through
"SafeTea-21," which returns 57% more transportation money to
Florida. Florida remains a donor state and needs a tighter to de-
liver for Florida and to drive our tax dollars home for schools,
veterans, seniors, families, and our military and business com-
munities!"

lOur econorn is in a sham-
cksonville business and community bles. Families, facing many
people attended. problems, including job
loss, high mortgage rates, and foreclosures, are hurting and need
help. Finding solutions is what Corrine Brown is all about. For
instance, Congresswoman Brown's well-attended and successful
seminars and job fairs are the envy of other Members of Con-
gress. Planning and organization is the key, and Congresswoman.
Brown has a gifted Congressional office staff second to none and
well-placed in Washington, Jacksonville and Orlando with out-
reach capabilities to every part of her district.

Congresswoman Brown, strong and solid on women's rights is-
sues, has made women's health a primary concern. From better
pre-natal care to mammogram testing to better elderly care, she
knows the needs of women have been ignored too long and must
be addressed starting now. When asked about the issues, she
replied, "Did you know that 7 out of 10 working-age Amrerican
women (64 million women) either have no health insurance, in-
sufficient health care coverage, trouble paying medical bills or a
lack of access to needed health care due to cost? That's just wrong
- and I aim to deliver for Florida's women and families."
