Its possible to win by losing. President Obama did. According to commentary by television pundits and commentators, following the debate, the president was an abysmal failure for not taking advantage of an opportunity on the world stage. Some dont agree. Heres why. Standing on that stage, President Obama had to overcome the Herculean task of dealing with years of cultural disease and pure insanity regarding race in America. He was in a situation of damned if you do and damned if you dont. He chose the dont, and in so doing did not blow the election that night. He could easily have blown it. Better to loseŽ a debate and win an election. Better to loseŽ a battle and win a war. President Obama was put in a unique position never undergone by any other man, Black, White or other, in the world, ever. For the first time in history, here was a Black man, an African (American) going face-to-face, toe-to-toe with a European (American) in a power struggle to be the supreme head, the ruler of an America symbolic of the plantation of old and symbolic of all the European colonized states of old. He, the man with Black heritage, was to challenge mano-amano, not only the white masterŽ, but the best of what the White world offers in its system of capitalism and patriarchy. Mitt Romney symbolized the White male master represented in the marketing scheme used to dominate all other people throughout the world. This is the image of the tall, broad shouldered, whiteŽ male of European heritage, rich, Ivy League educated, and considered good looking in the matinee idol sense and the Clark Gable way. His only glitch is Mormonism as opposed to Christianity, which is being overlooked. In that debate, was White America really ready to see President Barack Obama, symbolic of the Black man, as a second class citizen win? Were the old Whites, the ethnic blue collars, the middle class and poor Whites, whom deep down aspire for their children to be like or most nearly like the Romneys of the world, really emotionally prepared for that kind of in-your-face debate win on the world stage by a Black man? Would they really have been comfortable to see the President, butt heads with their son of AmericaŽ with the strong, white male, patriarch image of leadership and strength lose the debate? It seems the answer would be a resounding, no. Their gut would have reacted negatively. It just would not have felt right. Not on that stage. Something would be wrong with the picture. It would be the image of a Black man, before millions, in split screen as the equal of the White man and, possibly, in a winning situation. Not allowed. Not without permission. Did President Obama know this? Of course. He understands the culture of the White mind. He grew up in the closest proximity to Whites. His grandmother, grandfather, and mother were White. They raised him. He also knew that, on that stage, he needed to gain more of the elderly White vote in small towns and southern states like Florida and Virginia. And, he had to walk a fine line with the working class and middle class ethnics who have always been told by the powers that be that any setbacks or losses or failures they undergo are due to Black people and affirmative action. The President and his campaign managers had to make a choice. Was he to go headto-toe with Willard Mitt Romney, the quintessential WhiteŽ symbol of success, with him, the President, as an uppityŽ equal Black man or was he to take the more meek boyŽ role always demanded of Black people, as in servile times, so that they dont appear aggressive and threatening? They decided on the more meek, politeŽ role that everyone in America, including many Black people, misinterpreted as weak. Once the decision was made for mr. Obama to restrain himself from appearing as the angry Black maleŽ he overcompensated. He grinned a lot. He kept his head bowed as in the classic southern Black servant style. He may well have been playing to the old, southern white voters comfort level. Who knows? The Presidents demeanor may also have served the dual purpose of masking the intense anger he must have felt in being caught in Americas race madness and also being so intentionally disrespected by Willard Mitt Romney at the outset. Afterall, Romney started the debate with a strategic disarming debate tactic. He had indirectly called the President a boy and a liar. He did this by opening with the statement that he has five boys and in dealing with them he had to learn to tell when they were lying. The intent of this remark didnt go over anyones head. It was a couched way of calling the President a boy and waving the flag of lies over everything the President would be about to say, leaving himself, Romney, free to fire off a series of actual lies that went unchallenged. Part of not challenging Romney was that … You cant debate a liar. Theyll just lie more, and youd be exhausted with trying to counter all the lies. Also, if the President is dubbed the liar by Romney from the outset, then Romney establishes himself as the truth teller. Real sophisticated gaming here. Its one that many Americans, might not see or might not want to see. Following his clever, couched racist statement at the outset, Romney proceeded to bully not only the president, but PBS moderator Jim Lehrer. This played to the old Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, kick ass cowboy style, a la Iraq War George Bush that says, Im in charge and get things done. Im the boss. I make things happen. The president could have tried to out bully Romney, like arm wrestle him with words, but he would have lost the election there and then because of multiple cultural and underlying racial factors at work that night. In his overcompensation for not seeming like the aggressive Black man and by not fighting back, President Obama came off as weak (which he isnt) and unaggressive and unable to fight to the death to win, a picture Republicans and Tea Party folks have been painting of him all along despite his accomplishments in health care, terrorism and help for the military veterans, keeping the economy from tanking as it was doing via the stock market when he took office, and a host of other things including rights for women in equal pay and the right for women to determine what happens to their own bodies, as well as who can marry whom, immigration rights, saving the car industry in America, getting the unemployment rate below 8%. All were gutsy moves on his part. All was done with his hands and legs tied by the deliberate obstruction measures used by the Republicans at every turn, even when their actions meant tanking the country. So much for patriotism. Who knows what will happen this next debate. The Willard Mitt people are full of dirty tricks. The biggest point to be made here is that because of all the criticism heaped on President Obama for his poor performance,Ž it seems he now has permission from Whites to go toe-to-toe with Willard Mitt. In its blood sport of public gladiator brawls, the American public expects it, just as they do at the cinema, on the field and on the court. We must keep in mind how tough this is for the President. For instance, there are those who say he was intimated by Romney as masterŽ and being in the never before position of confronting the masterŽ mano-a-mano in a duel for power over the plantation (America). He is also in the position of being in a country where in contemporary American culture its considered fine for people to curse, shout, demean each other, fight to the death and win at all costs even if it means lying, stealing and cheating. Its a nation of bullying as public sport. Everyones waiting for the presidential gladiators to enter the ring with shields and swords at the ready. The president will still be walking a tightrope with a lot of cultural and underlying race factors that could distract him once again as a Black man in a unique, never before held position in the country and on the world media stage. (Remember, when President Barack Obama debated before he was a candidate and his debates were with a woman, Hillary Clinton, and an old man, John McCain. Them as old and as woman have a lesser value in their images and in White reality, as opposed to Romney in this culture. Contrary to the last debate, the President now has permission to be aggressive and uppity, within reason. Is it possible the President threw the debate; was involved in Muhammad Alis strategy of roper dope because he knew he needed permission to be more aggressive? Hes certainly more acceptable now because he is in keeping with the Black image in America … the Black underdog that has to come from behind.

THIS WOMANS WORK: Honoring WomenIn August and September, TALK OF THE TOWN! attended several outstanding events commemorating the roles of women in our society. At the Ritz Theatre and Museum we viewed the screening of The Other Side of SilenceŽ, a documentary which told the story of Ruby McCollum, an AfricanAmerican woman who was imprisoned for a crime she did not commit. The film allowed us to ponder/celebrate the cause of truth ov er the tragedy of racism. We spent a full day at events honoring the progress of women … Zonta Club of Jacksonvilles Womens Equality Day program, which, since 1920, commemorated a womans right to vote and the 17 th anniversary of the Womens Center of Jacksonville as a champion of forward change in the lives of women and their families. We celebrated women who were recognized by Women of Color Cultural Foundation, Inc ., for contributions in health, education, and economic development. Despite womens advances, ( Weve come a long way, baby. Yeah, right! ), the Equal Rights Amendment has yet to be ratified, discrimination against women is real (as is the wage gap … women in Florida make waaay less than men. Wanna guess where AfricanAmerican women and Latinas rank in Romneys 47 percentile?), and Ruby McCollums name has not been and may never be officially cleared ( cause racism is really real ). The Other Side of SilenceŽ is the documentary film written and directed by Dr. Claudia Hunter Johnson which chronicles the account of the 1952 murder of C. LeRoy Adams, a white physician and Florida Senator-elect, by his alleged lover, Ruby McCollum, a rich African-American woman and wife of a well known numbers runner in Live Oak, Florida. At the recent screening at the Ritz Theatre and Museum, Dr. Johnson, Rodney Hurst local civil rights activist and author of It Was Never About a Hot Dog And a Coke and Doug Udell Suwanee Countys first African-American County Commissioner, and a knowledgeable contributor to the film, fielded questions after the films conclusion. Udell revealed, toward the end of the film, that he has personal knowledge of Ruby McCollums innocence. He alleges that Dr. Adams was shot by the Chief of Police during an altercation at the doctors office, as he was attempting to abort Rubys pregnancy, allegedly the unborn child of the doctor. It is thought that the ensuing cover-up was to divert attention from valuables and money stolen from McCollum, who was the wealthiest AfricanAmerican in the town of Live Oak, Florida. Rubys husband, Sam McCollum, the Bolita manŽ of Live Oak, died of a heart attack the day after his wifes arrest. Ruby McCollum spent 20 years incarcerated, first, in prison after being sentenced to death and, later, in a Florida institution for the insane, after she was retried and found guilty by way of insanity! It is a horrific commentary on the legacy of slavery which resulted in the kinds of unapologetic atrocities heaped upon African-Americans as in the case of McCollum, Emmett Till, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Moore, and countless others known and unknown. The psychological illness and human degradation brought about as a result of the institution continues to manifests in the economic and social anomalies that plague our nation today.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla … Marcus Garvey once said, A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.Ž Today, Florida A&M University (FAMU) eighth president Frederick S. Humphries gave a history lesson that emphasized how exceptional he feels FAMU is and focused on the universitys rich history that has impacted the state of Florida and the nation. Humphries was the keynote speaker for the annual Founders Day Convocation, which commemorated FAMUs 125th anniversary. Throughout his speech, Humphries praised and shared with an audience filled with students, faculty, staff, alumni, retirees and members of the community some of FAMUs outstanding accomplishments. He spoke about the untiring efforts of Sybil Mobley, founding dean of the School of Business and Industry, who was instrumental in changing the lives of students at the university making FAMU one of the best business programs in the nation. Under the leadership of William P. Foster, Humphries said the Marching 100Ž was awarded the Sudler Trophy, becoming the only historically black college or university to receive this award. He shared how legendary football coach Jake Gaither led the way in football. As we celebrate the legacy of FAMU, we must remember that FAMU is exceptional,Ž said Humphries. Humphries, too, had an exceptional presidency at FAMU. During his nearly 17-year tenure, he created the Life Gets Better Scholarship and Graduate School Feeder Programs and he more than doubled enrollment while simultaneously raising academic standards. He increased the number of National Achievement Scholars at the university ranking first in the nation three times in recruiting National Achievement Scholars beating out Harvard and Stanford. FAMU also became the nations number one producer of African Americans with baccalaureate degrees and third in the nation as the baccalaureate institution of origin for African-American doctoral degree recipients. His crowning achievement came in 1997 when FAMU was selected as the first ever TIME Magazine/Princeton Review College of the Year.Ž Before Humphries took the stage, State University System of Florida Chancellor Frank T. Brogan, FAMUs Board of Trustees Chairman Solomon L. Badger and FAMUs President of the National Alumni Association Tommy L. Mitchell Sr. gave greetings. Murrell Dawson, director and curator of the Meek-Eaton Black Archives Research Center and Museum, gave an uplifting occasion that brought the audience to their feet. Members of the National Alumni Association spoke about rekindling the FAMU flame. Rep. Alan Williams, District 8 (Tallahassee), did a historical reading. Humphries concluded his message by challenging the audience that it was their responsibility to respond to FAMUs needs. Now is the time for you to act,Ž said Humphries. We are survivors. FAMU will be greater than it is today because of you.Ž Did members of the audience enjoy their history lesson of FAMU? DAndrea C. Cotton, who seemed to be bursting with joy after the convocation, expressed how excited she was to hear Humphries message and to celebrate FAMUs 125th anniversary. This place [FAMU] made me,Ž shouted Cotton, who received her bachelors and masters degrees from FAMU. FAMU changed my life. Attending FAMU was the best decision I ever made.Ž A native of Chicago, Ill., Cotton said that Sybil Mobley recruited her and she was the reason for her coming to FAMU. It seems that Cotton is just one of the numerous examples that FAMU is exceptional. Left to right:Frederick S. Humphries, eighth president of Florida A&M University (FAMU), James H.

The Charlotte troupe uses the style for a delightfully fresh and fun-loving presentation of the story of puppetmaker Geppetto, who carves Pinocchio out of a magical piece of wood. But the talking puppet cant stay out of trouble. Can he learn his lesson … and stop lying so his nose will stop growing … long enough to become a real boy? The one-act show by Lane Riosley with music and lyrics by Aven Stephenson lasts about one hour„perfect for the youngest attention span. But parents wont have to worry about keeping the kids interested. From the moment the show begins, its easy to see that this winning ensemble is having a great time, and it makes the experience even more enjoyable for everyone. Tickets for this family entertainment are only $10 for adults and $5 for anyone under the age of 18.

Build a better breakfast: Flavor meets nutrition in the best morning meals(ARA) Mom and grandma had it right: Providing your body with a meal at the beginning of the day can have a multitude of benefits, from keeping you in a good mood to preventing bad snack habits. To get the maximum effectiveness from your breakfast, it needs to be nutrition-packed. Of course, it's just as important that what you eat to start the day is delicious. Eating foods that provide a nutritional boost will help you today and in the long run. During your day, your body can rely on foods that provide fuel,Ž keeping you energized, alert and feeling good. And as the years go by, those healthy habits will pay off, helping your body function better for longer. Everyone knows that pleasing the palate is important after all, if it doesn't taste good, you won't want to eat it. Luckily, many of the healthiest foods are flavorful, even in their simplest forms that means a lot of taste with little effort. With that in mind, consider these options for quick, delicious breakfasts that pack a nutrition-rich punch. Toast with toppings A simple slice of bread can be so much more than just that Food For Life's new Ezekiel 4:9 Flax Sprouted Grain bread is far more than an average carbohydrate. The bread itself covers two nutrition quadrants of the USDA's My PlateŽ both grains and protein and is available in a range of varieties, including the new flax option that delivers added Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Top your nutrient-rich toast with avocado, fresh sliced tomatoes or hummus with a squeeze of lemon for a tasty start to the day. Steel-cut oats with super fruits When you need a stick-to-your ribs morning meal, it's hard to beat oatmeal. Steel-cut oats are minimally processed and offer a hearty texture. If you want to dress up your breakfast with some touches of sweetness, look to superŽ fruits like fresh blueberries or dried goji berries, both of which are packed with vitamins. Breakfast sandwich In most households, there are differing opinions on whether breakfast should be sweet or savory. Customizable breakfast sandwiches make for a simple solution that keeps everyone happy. Using a wholesome bread like Ezekiel 4:9 Flax Sprouted Grain Bread provides the perfect backdrop for catering to your unique taste buds. The bread's nutty, rich flavor complements everything from apples and honey to pears and almond butter (for sweet teeth) or smoked salmon with cucumbers and dill. Fruit-and-veggie smoothies Pairing fruits and vegetables for a morning smoothie is easier than you might imagine. Greens or even raw beets can be blended with berries for added nutritional benefit, but with a flavor that's fruit-forward and naturally sweet. Another popular combination is orange and carrot. Supplement your smoothie with a slice of protein-rich sprouted grain toast and you'll have a complete meal that will keep you going. It can be easy to fall into a routine of breakfast blahsŽ with food that doesn't fill you up and leaves your taste buds unimpressed. But by adding a few new items like Ezekiel 4:9 Flax Sprouted Grain bread to your shopping list, you'll have a whole new range of options for a tasty morning meal.

The Foundation of the California African American Museums (CAAM) annual gala, An Artful Evening at CAAM, honored legendary Academy Award-winner Sir Sidney Poitier and acclaimed artist John Outterbridge with Lifetime Achievement Awards on October 6th. Emmy Award-nominated actress CCH Pounder served as mistress of ceremonies. The Honorable Fred Mitchell, The Bahamas Minister of Foreign Affairs, was on-hand to recognize more than 60 years of Poitiers remarkable accomplishments as a star of the stage and silver screen, film director, author, poet and Bahamian diplomat. We are thrilled to have the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism as a major sponsor of our biggest fundraiser of the year,Ž said CAAM Executive Director Charmaine Jefferson. Without generous partners like The Bahamas, such a magical night would not be possible.Ž The people of The Islands Of The Bahamas are proud to serve as a sponsor of An Artful Evening at CAAM honoring Sir Sidney Poitier,Ž said Bahamas Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe. We congratulate Sir Sidney as the recipient of the 2012 California African American Museums Lifetime Achievement Award for his legendary acting career, courageous humanitarian work around the globe and distinguished service to the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. His remarkable achievements are truly awe-inspiring.Ž Lindsay Thompson from Bahamas Information Services reported that the Bahamas 40th Independence Anniversary celebrations will kick off on November 2, 2012 with a star-studded concert at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island honoring legendary Bahamian actor, Academy Award winner Sir Sidney Poitier. The announcement was made during a press conference at Cabinet Office on Tuesday, October 9, during which the events were endorsed by the Rt. Hon. Perry Christie, Prime Minister. Also present were co-chairs of the Independence Committee Dr Nicolette Bethel and Charles Carter. The celebrations start November 2 … 3 a weekend of dedication and celebrationŽ highlighting the best in Bahamian talent combined with a special concert by Academy and Golden Globe awards winner Jennifer Hudson, who will pay a special tribute to Sir Sidney, the first black American to win an Oscar. The gospel group the Region Bells are on the list of Bahamian talent to perform. The efforts to celebrate Bahamian culture at its highest level is in keeping with the Progressive Liberal Party Charter for Governance which outlines the Governments plans to have Bahamians fully understand and appreciate the culture and heritage of their language, music, expressions, food, religion, and mythsŽ. We are going to use the 40th Anniversary as a catalyst to create this higher level of awareness about the importance of developing, properly, the ethos of country and being able to connect this island destination in a very special way through all of the components that make up this country and the characteristic spirit that makes us all Bahamians,Ž the Prime Minister said. The Government also plans to rename the National Centre for the Performing Arts after Sir Sidney Poitier, and the Atlantis to name the bridge in his honor as well. Sir Sidney was born on February 20, 1927 in Miami to Bahamian parents, but grew up in Cat Island. In 1963 he became the first black man to win an Academy Award for his role as Homer Smith in Lilies of the Field. He served as Bahamas Non-resident Ambassador to Japan and to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. The Prime Minister confirmed that Atlantis has agreed to rename the bridge in honor of Sir Sidney. And, the national arts centre in his honor, the same as the national stadium named after Bahamian athlete Tommy A Robinson. Architect Michael Foster has been asked to submit plans for the redevelopment of the national arts theater for the renaming ceremony. The Prime Minister said he was happy that the Independence Committee chose to honor Sir Sidney although there have been a lot of debate on that. Sir Sidney not only has an incredible story, but in his later years he made significant contributions in the field of diplomacy to The Bahamas.Ž The Prime Minister said it was a pleasure for him to speak with Sir Sidney and have him invite whom he wishes, to attend the weekend of celebrations in The Bahamas. Hopefully this would symbolize to The Bahamas at large that we are now beginning a process that is intended to unite us, intended to bring focus to what really keeps us together and to minimize what divides us,Ž the Prime Minister said. As to how much the Government plans to spend on the celebrations, the Prime Minister agreed that it is priceless. From the point of view of what dollars we spent, we will account for them. What I do know is that I will spear no efforts to catch up with history that is escaping us now and every time one of these great ones die, they bury a part of our history with them,Ž he said. Mr. Carter referred to Sir Sidney as the most famous Bahamian of our time.Ž He said the celebration is the beginning of the joining of two generations from the generation that brought in Independence on July 10, 1973. At that time the population was 180,000, it has doubled since then. That generation is a diminishing one, we are on our way out and it would be sad if we did not pass the baton to the next generation,Ž he said. It is going to be a wonderful opportunity for us to reclaim our history and our heritage.Ž Mr. Carter will also travel the islands to solicit responses from Bahamians to find out what they like or not like about The Bahamas, and what they would like the country to be. Ms Bethel, who was a child during the 1973 Independence celebration, said that it is never too expensive to celebrate the culture of a nation. She too regards the 40th anniversary as the catalyst toward celebrating the 50th Independence. It is never too expensive to celebrate ones nationhood, that is an investment that countrys need to be making. We all need to step up and create the new Bahamas,Ž she said. Other plans to celebrate the 40th Independence Anniversary will be announced later.

(StatePoint) Its never too soon to get your child interested in current events -and doing so can have many positive benefits, from building vocabulary and improving writing, to encouraging active and engaged citizenship. While the news might seem boringŽ at first to kids, there are steps you can take to show them just how interesting and exciting current events can be: Read Together Ensure that your home subscribes to a daily paper. Let your children pick which articles they want to read and help them with words and concepts they dont understand. Read at least a few front page news articles together and then allow them to skip to whichever sections of the paper they find the most interesting. Many magazines run kids editions in print or online, such as Time, Sports Illustrated and National Geographic. Subscribe your child to an age-appropriate magazine or newspaper. Most children are already well-versed in using the Internet for acquiring information. Guide your children to trusted online news sources that they can access on their own. Encourage Hands-On Learning Often the most effective way to spark your childs interest is to offer him or her hands-on learning opportunities. Encourage your child to join the school newspaper or the schools television news program. Even as budget cuts loom in schools, private companies are helping schools offer their students unique educational opportunities. The Panasonic Kid Witness News program for example, a hands-on program designed to help children develop creative, cognitive and communication skills, has provided more than 150,000 children around the world access to top-notch video production equipment and an opportunity to learn a new skill they can use to make fun newscasts that are relevant to their daily lives. Each year, schools are encouraged to submit student videos on set themes and topics in formats such as newscasts, documentaries, dramas and commercials to a national and potentially global contest. Winning schools receive a package of Panasonic products that will enhance classroom learning. The videos show the world through their eyes.Ž For more information, visit www.panasonic.net/kwn. Its important to get kids to share how they see the world. This is a perception we don't usually see in the news,Ž says Joseph Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Panasonic Corporation of North America. Its a valuable perspective that mainstream media usually misses.Ž Watch Together Make watching the news together a part of your evening routine. Remember, kids have limited attention spans …so avoid the never ending 24-hour news programming and opt for a half-hour program that highlights all the days top stories succinctly. Use commercial breaks and dinnertime to discuss what you watched. If youre worried that the imagery will be too graphic or mature, consider recording it first and sharing with your child only the parts you feel comfortable with. By encouraging your kids to keep up with current events, you can help them gain valuable perspective and understand the world around them. ***** How to Get Kids Interested in Current Events Announcements, meetings, happenings, and community events scheduled in Jacksonville and the surrounding area Veterans Day is Coming: Ways to Honor Veterans (StatePoint) Veterans Day is coming, an annual opportunity for communities and families to honor former U.S. service members. And as these heroes age, its important to keep their stories and sacrifices alive by listening and learning. Here are some great ways to commemorate veterans this holiday: Listen to a Story You may not think about it much, but everyone has a lesson to share and a story to offer. World War II for example, which killed and injured more people than any other war in human history, impacted an entire generation -from soldiers on the frontlines of battle, to children at home participating in the war effort. Learn about both world history and your familys history by talking to older relatives and friends about their experiences and trials. You may even consider tape recording the conversation so you can share the personal account with others. If you have a story yourself, consider writing it down or retelling it at the next family gathering. Read a War Memoir While reading and understanding the past is possible by delving into a standardissue textbook, there is nothing like an eyewitness account to get a true feel for a crucial time in history. Such accounts can deliver a unique perspective on a familiar story. The tales you discover can help you better connect with history. One such book, the newly released Terror Before Dawn: A Child At War,Ž by Anne Raghnild Fagerberg and William Sterling Williams, presents Fagerbergs account of her childhood experience during World War II under Nazi rule in Norway. Williams, Fagerbergs son, found her notes after she died of cancer in 1998. She had completed her story shortly before she passed away. Though only a child during the war, Fagerberg did what she could to contribute to winning the war, distributing newspapers and literature of the underground resistance movement. The reflections of a war survivor offer lessons about courage, survival, rebuilding and freedom,Ž says Williams. Her piece of history needed to be preserved.Ž More information can be found at such websites as www.amazon.com by searching for Terror Before Dawn.Ž Teach Your Children No one is too young to learn about and honor the past. While children might enjoy a holiday parade, be sure to explain the true meaning of the day so they understand the reason for all the fanfare. Many schools choose to honor veterans by inviting them to speak at assemblies and before history classes. Find out what programs are happening at your school. Visit www.va.gov/kids for ideas on how to talk to kids about war, history and the sacrifice of veterans. Dont let this Veterans Day pass by unrecognized. Take the time to honor the past.

OCTOBER 13, 2012 THESTAR PAGEB-4 Pair of Gillislee TDs Lead Gators Past LSU in Top 10 Showdown On Saturday October 6th, the University of Florida Gators met the LSU Tigers at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The Gators relied heavily on their rushing game in the first half when it appeared that a passing strategy might have been more fitting. Many Gator fans were concerned about a potential loss, going into the second half because the Tigers played very aggressively both offensively and defensively. The Tigers went into the second half leading the home team 6-0 Attributed to a field goal kick at 10:48 in the first quarter and another 24 seconds into the second quarter. The Gators were only able to accumulate a total of 47 yards of total offense in the entire first half. The second half revealed a turn of events. In the third quarter alone they racked up 127 yards of offense and a total of 237 yards of offense for the entire game. The tipping point in the Gators' favor came at 5:15 into the 3rd quarter, when Mike Gillislee carried the ball 12 yards into COLLEGESPORTS: NCAA BANSTEXAS SOUTHERNS BASKETBALL & FOOTBALL Bye Week Comes As Opportune Time For Jacksonville By FRED WITT Florida Sports Wire The Chicago Bears finished with 501 yards of offense, 309 in the second half, in a 41-3 win over the Jaguars on Sunday at EverBank Field. The defense was led by Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs, each returning interceptions for touchdowns. The Jaguars Josh Scobee tied the game at 3-3 in the first quarter on a 31-yard field goal. I think its some of those a little bit of maybe here we go again. There was a point there in the game yesterday there was 5:45 seconds to go in the third quarter, they kicked a field goal and led 6-3. We get out on the field offensively and have a holding call on first down and we have an interception for a touchdown on the second play,Ž said Jacksonville coach Mike Mularkey. There was just a sequence of plays that changed the momentum of the game. Weve got to not let those things affect us.Ž Jacksonville QB Blaine Gabbert completed 17 of 33 passes for 142 yards, with those two interceptions. Maurice Jones-Drew finished with 56 yards on 12 carries. Jacksonville could only muster 108 yards on offense. Matt Forte rushed for 107 yards, his first 100yard game since last Nov. 7 against the Eagles. The 214 yards were the third most in Lovie Smith's nine seasons as Bears coach and more than double the 101 yards the Bears had averaged on the ground in their first four games. "It's a must for us," Smith said Monday. "I'm talking about the commitment of us running the ball. We're not going to always rush for 200 yards like we did [Sunday], but just the commitment that we're running it and making defenses play for the run, that's what we have to do." The Bears Robbie Gould added field goal of 32 and 31 yards. "I wish I was standing up here in a better situation, but that's not the case," said Mularkey following the game. "I told the team that I don't know how that happened, especially after a 3-3 half and playing some good football. The way it escalated out of control is is unfortunate." Chicago has won three of its last four games against Jacksonville. The Bears controlled the ball for 36 minutes. BYE WEEK BLUES … Jacksonvilles next game is Oct. 21 at Oakland. The Jaguars practiced in helmets Tuesday and Wednesday during the upcoming bye week. Collective bargaining agreement rules mandate players have four consecutive days off during a bye week, so they will be off Thursday through Sunday. Mularkey described the bye week practices as going to be pretty stressful. INJURY UPDATE … The Jaguars hope linebacker Daryl Smith will return for the first game after the bye, at Oakland. Smith has missed the first five games of the season with a groin injury. Wide receiver Laurent Robinson remains in the clubs concussion program and will not practice this week. His status for the Raiders is uncertain. AFC SOUTH NOTEBOOK … Houston Texans (5-0) linebacker Brian Cushing left Monday's 23-17 victory over the New York Jets in the second quarter with a left knee injury. Cushing suffered the injury in the second quarter. The 2009 Defensive Rookie of the Year had 24 tackles and an interception through the first four games this season. Reggie Wayne caught 13 passes for a career-high 212 yards, which included the go-ahead touchdown with 35 second to play as Indianapolis (2-2) downed the Green Bay Packers, 3027, on Sunday. QB Matt Hasselbeck will start at quarterback for the Tennessee Titans (1-4) when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jake Locker is still recovering from an injured left. Hasselbeck also started in Sunday's 30-7 loss at Minnesota. JAGUARS PARTNERING WITH SCOUTS … Jaguars owner Shad Khan announced that the Jaguars and the Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council are partnering to kick off the Every Boy Deserves a ChanceŽ Matching Gift Campaign. The Jaguars Foundation will match dollar-for-dollar for every donation made, up to $100,000. Brian Sexton, the game-day radio play by play announcer, is the honorary chair of the grassroots campaign. For more information about the campaign, or to make a gift, please contact the North Florida Council at 904-388-0591 or tim.forman@scouting.org. UP NEXT„ After the bye week, the Jaguars travel to Oakland to play the Raiders (1-3) on Oc. 21. It will be the first of two road games before returning to EverBank Field to host the Detroit Lions on Nov. 3. Oakland will be coming off a road game against Atlanta. The Jaguars will visit Green Bay on Oct. 28 before returning home. HOUSTON -The NCAA banned Texas Southern's basketball program from the 2012-13 postseason and the football program from the 2013 and 2014 postseason, citing recruiting violations, academic issues, the use of ineligible athletes and exceeding scholarship limits. The Division I Infractions Committee outlined widespread violations, spanning 13 sports over a sevenyear period in a report released Tuesday. Other penalties include five years' probation, scholarship limitations in football and basketball and the vacation of all team records from the 2006-10 in all sports, and including the 2010-11 records for football and women's soccer. In 2010, Texas Southern won its first SWAC football championship since 1968. The NCAA cited Texas Southern for "lack of institutional control" and noted the school as a "double repeat violator." the end zone for a UF's first touchdown of the game. With just over 13 minutes remaining on the clock he drove another touchdown into the end zone. Although Gillisilee is credited for the touchdowns that won the game, the Gator kicker and defense were major reason why it was possible. Sophomore punter Kyle Christy kicked three of his four punts inside the10-yard line in the first half. The defense continually brought the pressure on the LSU Tigers that kept them at bay and made the win possible. Junior defensive back Matt Elam captured seven tackles in the game to lead the Gators defense. He also forced a fumble that led to Florida's second score of the day. Florida's defense held LSU to 0-for-7 on third downs in the first half. By the conclusion of the game, the Tigers finished at 1-for-13-converting for the first time on third down with approximately 11:30 remaining in the fourth quarter. PHOTOS:GatorZone

My Faith My VoteRev. Geoffrey A. Black General Minister and PresidentI am a believer and I vote. I might amplify that statement with this. Because I am a believer and a disciple of Jesus, I vote. My faith, my basic beliefs and the act of voting are integral to each other. So, I begin with a foundational teaching of Jesus and of the Judeo-Christian tradition. In the Gospel According to Mark Chapter 12 one of the scribes asked Jesus, Which commandments is the first of all?Ž Jesus answered, The first is, Hear O Israel: the Lord our God is one; you shall love the lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.Ž In response to the scribe, I like to say, Jesus leads with love … love of God, love of neighbor and love of self. As with faith and voting, I understand that these two commandments are integral to each other. For me voting is love in action. It is about loving God, neighbor and about self. Therefore, I vote for candidates who are likely to enact policies that honor God and are in the best interest of my neighbors. Of course, I also vote in my own self -interest and that too is an act of love. However, I want to be clear voting in my own self-interest is not about being selfish. Policies that are truly beneficial to me are policies that serve the common good. They are the kind of policies that will make life better for all. Moreover, voting is an act of self-expression in the public realm. As an individual it is a way for me to participate fully in this society and the world. I understand self-expression to be an essential element of self-love. Today the interconnectedness of the world is more apparent than ever before in history. We live in a global economy. As Christians we share a faith tradition with people around the world. They are our neighbors. When I cast a vote, I do so with them in mind. In this respect also, I strive to vote for candidates, who are likely to enact policies that will reflect love … policies that eschew fear and hatred. I am a child of the Civil Rights Movement. My neighbors engaged in this struggle for justice and equality so that all would have the right to vote. My love for those neighbors is framed in sacred memory of the many people of all races, men, women and children, who were injured or killed in that struggle. I vote with gratitude and paying homage to them. In his teachings, Jesus was always pointing to the Realm of God. He taught about it and he taught his followers to pray for it, Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.Ž For me, the realm of God is the social, political and spiritual ideal. We are to strive for it in all of our living which includes our voting. The United Church of Christ has 5,194 churches throughout the United States. Rooted in the Christian traditions of congregational governance and covenantal relationships, each UCC setting speaks only for itself and not on behalf of every UCC congregation. UCC members and churches are free to differ on important social issues, even as the UCC remains principally committed to unity in the midst of our diversity.

Three Arrested in Crime Spree Three men were arrested after committing numerous crimes. According to reports, the crime spree started at 12:47 p.m. when a resident reported that two men barged into his garage and stole his white 1995 Lincoln Town Car at gunpoint. They tied the man up using an electrical cord from a fan, shut him inside the garage, and sped away in the car. The victim did not sustain any injuries. At 1:05 p.m., employees at a bank called 911 to report that they had just been robbed. They also reported that the robbers got away in a white Lincoln Town Car. Police were able to make the connection between the home invasion and the bank robbery and searched the area for the stolen car. The vehicle was soon found abandoned behind a supermarket. Police found out that the suspects had changed vehicles to avoid being caught. Police soon located the suspects on the road, but the suspects wrecked the car alongside the highway near a ramp at about 1:17 p.m. They then fled on foot into the nearby woods, but law enforcement flooded the area and the three men were quickly captured. One was bitten by a police K-9 and was later transported to the hospital for treatment. Nobody else during the crime spree were injured. Police arrested Winsor V. Lyles, 32, Stacy L. Taylor, 32, and Christopher Donaldson, 36. All three men were charged with kidnapping, armed home invasion, and grand theft of a motor vehicle. They are being held without bond. According to police, all these men have extensive criminal history. Lyles was released from prison in 2011 after serving time for attempted first-degree murder. Taylor was released in 2008 after serving 10 years for aggravated battery and attempted murder. Donaldson was released from prison only 12 days before the recent crime spree from a nine and half year sentence for attempted robbery, grand theft, of a motor vehicle, and fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer.

Dropped Cell Phone During Burglary Leads to ArrestsA cell phone dropped during a burglary led to two arrests. At around 3:23 a.m., police were dispatched in reference to a vehicle burglary in progress. The victim observed a suspect entering his vehicle. The suspect then fled on foot behind houses within the area. Police were advised that the victim was following the suspect vehicle. A traffic stop was conducted on the suspect vehicle. The female driver of the vehicle was identified as Alexis Boyde, 23. police saw burglary tools and property in Boydes vehicle. Police found bags with GPS devices, game consoles, cameras, and cell phones. A cell phone within the property was found and began to ring. A female deputy answered the phone believing it could possibly be a victims cell phone. Dehaven Osley, 23, who believed that it was Boyde answered the phone to give instructions to pick him up at a 7-Eleven. Police responded to the 7-Eleven and came in contact with Dehaven Osley. Both were arrested and charged with four counts of burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, three counts of grand theft, and possession of burglary Dehaven Osley Alexis Boyde Stacy Taylor Winsor Lyles Christopher Donaldson

The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. Does Your Child Know About Stranger Safety? A missing kidŽ is a frightening experience for any parent. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), 800,000 children younger than 18 are missing annually … an average of 2,185 children reported missing daily. Sixty-three percent of the abductions involve non-family members such as a babysitter, friend, long-term acquaintance, neighbor, caretaker or person of authority; whereas, 37 percent of the abductions involve a stranger. Most abductions occur during the day while a child is walking home or riding a bicycle between the hours of two and seven in the evening. In a recent NBC special documentary, My Kid Would Never Do That: Stranger Danger,Ž elementary school kids were tested on what they would do when approached by a stranger. The kids were not aware they were being videotaped by NBC and watched by their parents. The children were only informed that they were participating in a community project to make posters for U.S. troops. The hope was that the kids would remember the things their parents taught them about getting into a vehicle with a stranger. The kids participating in the experiment included the NBC reporters own son, a set of twins, three girls who did not know each other and three boys that knew each other. The children were all faced with the same challenge: a stranger in an ice cream truck offers free ice cream and coerces them to come into the truck and look at the trucks music machine. All of the kids had been coached by their parents about the dangers of talking and accepting items from strangers. The results of the experiment were disappointing and scary. Of the twins, one child was reluctant to get in the truck, refused to accept ice cream and expressed that they would have to ask their parents about the strangers requests. The other twin took the ice cream. The three girls who did not know each other became very excited about the arrival of the ice cream truck. All of the girls followed the stranger to the back of the truck and one of them got into the truck, received her ice cream and started marveling over the trucks music machine. One of the three girls who had been taught repeatedly by her father (a police officer) about stranger safety, pulled the other girl away from the truck and told her that it was a scam. With the repeated coercing of the stranger, the two girls cautiously approached the side of the truck and reluctantly got ice cream from the stranger. Of the three boys who were very good friends, one child stayed back (the NBC reporters son) while the other two boys followed the stranger to the truck. Eventually, all three boys got their ice cream with the reporters son running for safety behind the project area. All of the parents were disappointed with their children and realized they had to work more with them to help them understand the dangers of talking with strangers and accepting items from them. To avoid potential abductions, NCMEC provides the following safety tips for children and parents: For children, they should (1) avoid being tricked by adults who offer special gifts or treats such as ice cream; (2) get approval from your parents before you go or do anything with a stranger; (3) say no to all requests by strangers and (4) take a friend when you go somewhere. Parents should (1) teach kids to avoid getting in or going towards a strangers vehicle; (2) establish rules for where they can go in the neighborhood (3) practice roleplaying various scenarios and (4) keep open lines of communication. Keeping our children safe is a major responsibility of parents. In todays environment, our children can be faced with untold scams that can ultimately harm them mentally and physically. As parents, we must diligently train our children about how to handle strangers and the actions they can take when they are in dangerous situations. Your Safety Two Arrested for Trying to Move into Vacant Homes Two women were arrested for trespassing and trying to gain ownership of vacant homes. At approximately 6 p.m., police responded to a residence in reference to a trespasser. Police met the homeowner who told them that he found an unknown family living in his house. The house was vacant prior to this incident because of Chinese drywall. The police obtained the names of the people residing in the house and advised them to leave the premises. 43-year-old Tami Robinson told police that she obtained an adverse possession to get ownership of the property from the court and believed she was residing in the house legally. About a week later, police responded back to court to confirm the parties had moved into the home. About five days later, at approximately 6:42 p.m., deputies responded to another location. Police made contact with 39-year-old Samantha Magras, who stated she just recently moved into the residence. Magras also stated she did not purchase and is not renting the residence. She stated that her friend, Tami Robinson, was filing for adverse possession. She also told police she had a locksmith change the locks. The owner of this home is an active member of the United States Air Force and left town to Texas. In Florida, people are able to gain ownership of a property if they fix it up and occupy it for seven years as they pay the taxes. But in this case, authorities say the two women were trespassing and these rules did not apply to them. Police say once the suspects changed the locks on the residence, they prevented the actual property owner from accessing the residence. Police arrested both suspects and each were charged with two counts of home invasion by false personation, two counts of organized scheme to defraud, two counts of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, and two counts of grand theft. Both are being held on $69,500 bond. Tami Robinson Samantha Magras

OCTOBER 13, 2012 THE STAR PR 1 FAMU SBI Students Place First and Second at Globe-WithoutBorders Business Case Competition TALLAHASSEE, Fla … Students from the Florida A&M University (FAMU) School of Business and Industry recently won first and second places in the 2012 Globe-Without-Borders Business Case Competition sponsored by Savannah State University. Other universities represented in the competition were Georgia Southern University, Savannah State University and South University. Globe-Without-Borders Global Business Case Competition is an annual case competition that brings together undergraduate business students to compete in a challenging business case study. The program allows students to analyze and develop a business recommendation within 96 hours. The students skill sets, determination, and sacrifice were remarkable, and I knew going into the competition that both teams were strong contenders,Ž said Rashada Houston, faculty adviser. For both teams to place, it proved that FAMU students have the scholastic aptitude to compete on any level and perform at a superior level.Ž Competing teams worked under pressure to solve a real problem, using simulated business conditions such as time-critical deadlines and incomplete information, to formulate workable, action-oriented recommendations. Team one consisted of: Zachary Addy, a senior business student from Chicago, Ill., Brandon Camille, a senior business student from Long Island, N.Y.; and Tiana McClellan, a senior accounting student from Detroit, Mich. Team two consisted of the following: Breyon Love, a senior business administration student from Atlanta, Ga.; Shayna Gunn, a senior accounting student from Miami, Fla.; and Hillrod Lumpkin, a senior accounting and business student from Southfield, Mich. Teams were judged by a panel of industry and academic experts including CEOs, top management executives and consultants. The teams had 20 minutes to present their case analysis and recommendations from a required written overview. Judges based their decisions on such criteria as the depth and comprehensiveness of analysis, relevance, originality, persuasiveness and overall presentation. The moment one of our teams won second place, I felt like FAMUs faculty won also,Ž Houston said. It was an example of our hard work paying off. Day in and day out, we spend countless hours in the classroom preparing our students and this competition was an opportunity to prove to faculty that the students are learning. And when our other team was announced as the first place winner, I was overjoyed because it shows our that we remain an institution of academic excellence.ŽPhoto captions: FAMU Team 1 -1st Place School of Business and Industry students (from left to right) Brandon Camille, Tiana M cClellan and Zachary Addy won first place in the GlobeWithout-Borders Business Case Competition.

OCTOBER 13, 2012 THE STAR PR 2 Make Your Scholarship Essay Stand Out(NAPS)„There could be good news for many students. Plenty of generous people and organizations donate each year to scholarship funds that help Americans meet their educational goals. Aspiring students can easily learn where and how to apply by visiting sites such as ScholarshipAmerica.org. A critical part of the application process is often a personal essay on a single, weighty topic: Who has influenced you the most and why? Why do you want to be in your selected profession? Ten years from today, where do you see yourself? and the like. Before you even think about opening up a Word doc, though, you may care to heed this advice to help you avoid essay mistakes: 1.Dont rush. Good writing requires time and clear focus. With school, friends and extracurricular activities competing for a share of your life, its easy to push that scholarship essay aside until the last minute. Bad idea. Start the essay long before its due, put some time aside to work on it a little each night or on the weekends, and remember: The best writing is rewriting. Schedule time to revise. 2.Know your audience. Some scholarship funds like an upbeat essay, others prefer a formal voice. You wont know until you do a little research. Go to the sponsoring organizations website and read its mission, history and programs. Youll get a sense of the organizations personality,Ž which will help you tailor your essay to fit what reviewers want. 3.Obey the rules of good writing. U can get away w/ broken English when ur texting or chatting w/ friends but it wont work for ur essay. Scholarships want 2 give $ to smart peeps and writin like this makes u look like u dont care. So write in English not in text and use proper grammar and punctuation. K? :) 4.Be interesting. Scholarship reviewers read hundreds, sometimes thousands of essays every year. So yours needs to stand out. Answering the question is a must, but so is creativity. Dont fill space with superficial and predictable information. Use images, examples, anecdotes and other storytelling techniques to make your writing richer. Consider this example: My father inspires me because he puts his life on the line daily as a Chicago police officer.Ž Compare that to this essay opening: Every day at 5 a.m. sharp, Dad rolls quietly out of bed, puts on his police uniform and carefully buckles his gun belt around his waist. Meanwhile, Mom starts her day with a prayer that Dad will come home safely from the streets of Chicago.Ž 5.Read it out loud. People learn language by hearing it, so the clearest voice is close to conversational. Instead of simply using your eyes when you revise, employ your ears as well. With a pen-and-paper copy in hand, read your entire essay aloud, jotting changes as needed. By hearing how the document flows, you can catch clunky sentences and eliminate those pesky grammar mistakes that your eyes might overlook. 6.Get a second opinion. See if your school has a writing center where you can get advice on your essay. Take advantage of these resources. Or e-mail your essay to your parents or other trusted advisers. A fresh set of eyes can prevent a big mistake. Getting scholarship money may be easier when you know the writeŽ way to go about it.THE COLOR PURPLE Sept. 28 Oct. 14 Sheran Shelton, the Director of A Magical Beginning Learning Academy Would like to share 5 Great tips for creating a life time reader in your child: 1.

Its possible to win by losing. President Obama did. According to commentary by television pundits and commentators, following the debate, the president was an abysmal failure for not taking advantage of an opportunity on the world stage. Some dont agree. Heres why. Standing on that stage, President Obama had to overcome the Herculean task of dealing with years of cultural disease and pure insanity regarding race in America. He was in a situation of damned if you do and damned if you dont. He chose the dont, and in so doing did not blow the election that night. He could easily have blown it. Better to lose a debate and win an election. Better to lose a battle and win a war. President Obama was put in a unique position never undergone by any other man, Black, White or other, in the world, ever. For the first time in history, here was a Black man, an African (American) going face-to-face, toe-to-toe with a European (American) in a power struggle to be the supreme head, the ruler of an America symbolic of the plantation of old and symbolic of all the European colonized states of old. He, the man with Black heritage, was to challenge mano-amano, not only the white master, but the best of what the White world offers in its system of capitalism and patriarchy. Mitt Romney symbolized the White male master represented in the marketing scheme used to dominate all other people throughout the world. This is the image of the tall, broad shouldered, white male of European heritage, rich, Ivy League educated, and considered good looking in the matinee idol sense and the Clark Gable way. His only glitch is Mormonism as opposed to Christianity, which is being overlooked. In that debate, was White America really ready to see President Barack Obama, symbolic of the Black man, as a second class citizen win? Were the old Whites, the ethnic blue collars, the middle class and poor Whites, whom deep down aspire for their children to be like or most nearly like the Romneys of the world, really emotionally prepared for that kind of in-your-face debate win on the world stage by a Black man? Would they really have been comfortable to see the President, butt heads with their son of America with the strong, white male, patriarch image of leadership and strength lose the debate? It seems the answer would be a resounding, no. Their gut would have reacted negatively. It just would not have felt right. Not on that stage. Something would be wrong with the picture. It would be the image of a Black man, before millions, in split screen as the equal of the White man and, possibly, in a winning situation. Not allowed. Not without permission. Did President Obama know this? Of course. He understands the culture of the White mind. He grew up in the closest proximity to Whites. His grandmother, grandfather, and mother were White. They raised him. He also knew that, on that stage, he needed to gain more of the elderly White vote in small towns and southern states like Florida and Virginia. And, he had to walk a fine line with the working class and middle class ethnics who have always been told by the powers that be that any setbacks or losses or failures they undergo are due to Black people and affirmative action. The President and his campaign managers had to make a choice. Was he to go headto-toe with Willard Mitt Romney, the quintessential White symbol of success, with him, the President, as an uppity equal Black man or was he to take the more meek boy role always demanded of Black people, as in servile times, so that they dont appear aggressive and threatening? They decided on the more meek, polite role that everyone in America, including many Black people, misinterpreted as weak. Once the decision was made for mr. Obama to restrain himself from appearing as the angry Black male he overcompensated. He grinned a lot. He kept his head bowed as in the classic southern Black servant style. He may well have been playing to the old, southern white voters comfort level. Who knows? The Presidents demeanor may also have served the dual purpose of masking the intense anger he must have felt in being caught in Americas race madness and also being so intentionally disrespected by Willard Mitt Romney at the outset. Afterall, Romney started the debate with a strategic disarming debate tactic. He had indirectly called the President a boy and a liar. He did this by opening with the statement that he has five boys and in dealing with them he had to learn to tell when they were lying. The intent of this remark didnt go over anyones head. It was a couched way of calling the President a boy and waving the flag of lies over everything the President would be about to say, leaving himself, Romney, free to fire off a series of actual lies that went unchallenged. Part of not challenging Romney was that You cant debate a liar. Theyll just lie more, and youd be exhausted with trying to counter all the lies. Also, if the President is dubbed the liar by Romney from the outset, then Romney establishes himself as the truth teller. Real sophisticated gaming here. Its one that many Americans, might not see or might not want to see. Following his clever, couched racist statement at the outset, Romney proceeded to bully not only the president, but PBS moderator Jim Lehrer. This played to the old Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, kick ass cowboy style, a la Iraq War George Bush that says, Im in charge and get things done. Im the boss. I make things happen. The president could have tried to out bully Romney, like arm wrestle him with words, but he would have lost the election there and then because of multiple cultural and underlying racial factors at work that night. In his overcompensation for not seeming like the aggressive Black man and by not fighting back, President Obama came off as weak (which he isnt) and unaggressive and unable to fight to the death to win, a picture Republicans and Tea Party folks have been painting of him all along despite his accomplishments in health care, terrorism and help for the military veterans, keeping the economy from tanking as it was doing via the stock market when he took office, and a host of other things including rights for women in equal pay and the right for women to determine what happens to their own bodies, as well as who can marry whom, immigration rights, saving the car industry in America, getting the unemployment rate below 8%. All were gutsy moves on his part. All was done with his hands and legs tied by the deliberate obstruction measures used by the Republicans at every turn, even when their actions meant tanking the country. So much for patriotism. Who knows what will happen this next debate. The Willard Mitt people are full of dirty tricks. The biggest point to be made here is that because of all the criticism heaped on President Obama for his poor performance, it seems he now has permission from Whites to go toe-to-toe with Willard Mitt. In its blood sport of public gladiator brawls, the American public expects it, just as they do at the cinema, on the field and on the court. We must keep in mind how tough this is for the President. For instance, there are those who say he was intimated by Romney as master and being in the never before position of confronting the master mano-a-mano in a duel for power over the plantation (America). He is also in the position of being in a country where in contemporary American culture its considered fine for people to curse, shout, demean each other, fight to the death and win at all costs even if it means lying, stealing and cheating. Its a nation of bullying as public sport. Everyones waiting for the presidential gladiators to enter the ring with shields and swords at the ready. The president will still be walking a tightrope with a lot of cultural and underlying race factors that could distract him once again as a Black man in a unique, never before held position in the country and on the world media stage. (Remember, when President Barack Obama debated before he was a candidate and his debates were with a woman, Hillary Clinton, and an old man, John McCain. Them as old and as woman have a lesser value in their images and in White reality, as opposed to Romney in this culture. Contrary to the last debate, the President now has permission to be aggressive and uppity, within reason. Is it possible the President threw the debate; was involved in Muhammad Alis strategy of roper dope because he knew he needed permission to be more aggressive? Hes certainly more acceptable now because he is in keeping with the Black image in America the Black underdog that has to come from behind.

PAGE A-4 THE STAR OCTOBER 13, 2012Talk of the Town! Talk of the Town! Frances Bradley Columnist frances@thefloridastar.comVolume Burks, Photographer E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome. THIS WOMANS WORK: Honoring WomenIn August and September, TALK OF THE TOWN! attended several outstanding events commemorating the roles of women in our society. At the Ritz Theatre and Museum we viewed the screening of The Other Side of Silence, a documentary which told the story of Ruby McCollum, an AfricanAmerican woman who was imprisoned for a crime she did not commit. The film allowed us to ponder/celebrate the cause of truth over the tragedy of racism. We spent a full day at events honoring the progress of women Zonta Club of Jacksonvilles Womens Equality Day program, which, since 1920, commemorated a womans right to vote and the 17 th anniversary of the Womens Center of Jacksonville as a champion of forward change in the lives of women and their families. We celebrated women who were recognized by Women of Color Cultural Foundation, Inc., for contributions in health, education, and economic development. Despite womens advances, ( Weve come a long way, baby. Yeah, right! ), the Equal Rights Amendment has yet to be ratified, discrimination against women is real (as is the wage gap women in Florida make waaay less than men. Wanna guess where AfricanAmerican women and Latinas rank in Romneys 47 percentile?), and Ruby McCollums name has not been and may never be officially cleared ( cause racism is really real ). The Other Side of Silence is the documentary film written and directed by Dr. Claudia Hunter Johnson which chronicles the account of the 1952 murder of C. LeRoy Adams, a white physician and Florida Senator-elect, by his alleged lover, Ruby McCollum, a rich African-American woman and wife of a well known numbers runner in Live Oak, Florida. At the recent screening at the Ritz Theatre and Museum, Dr. Johnson, Rodney Hurst, local civil rights activist and author of It Was Never About a Hot Dog And a Coke and Doug Udell, Suwanee Countys first African-American County Commissioner, and a knowledgeable contributor to the film, fielded questions after the films conclusion. Udell revealed, toward the end of the film, that he has personal knowledge of Ruby McCollums innocence. He alleges that Dr. Adams was shot by the Chief of Police during an altercation at the doctors office, as he was attempting to abort Rubys pregnancy, allegedly the unborn child of the doctor. It is thought that the ensuing cover-up was to divert attention from valuables and money stolen from McCollum, who was the wealthiest AfricanAmerican in the town of Live Oak, Florida. Rubys husband, Sam McCollum, the Bolita man of Live Oak, died of a heart attack the day after his wifes arrest. Ruby McCollum spent 20 years incarcerated, first, in prison after being sentenced to death and, later, in a Florida institution for the insane, after she was retried and found guilty by way of insanity! It is a horrific commentary on the legacy of slavery which resulted in the kinds of unapologetic atrocities heaped upon African-Americans as in the case of McCollum, Emmett Till, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Moore, and countless others known and unknown. The psychological illness and human degradation brought about as a result of the institution continues to manifests in the economic and social anomalies that plague our nation today.

Marcus Garvey once said, A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. Today, Florida A&M University (FAMU) eighth president Frederick S. Humphries gave a history lesson that emphasized how exceptional he feels FAMU is and focused on the universitys rich history that has impacted the state of Florida and the nation. Humphries was the keynote speaker for the annual Founders Day Convocation, which commemorated FAMUs 125th anniversary. Throughout his speech, Humphries praised and shared with an audience filled with students, faculty, staff, alumni, retirees and members of the community some of FAMUs outstanding accomplishments. He spoke about the untiring efforts of Sybil Mobley, founding dean of the School of Business and Industry, who was instrumental in changing the lives of students at the university making FAMU one of the best business programs in the nation. Under the leadership of William P. Foster, Humphries said the Marching was awarded the Sudler Trophy, becoming the only historically black college or university to receive this award. He shared how legendary football coach Jake Gaither led the way in football. As we celebrate the legacy of FAMU, we must remember that FAMU is exceptional, said Humphries. Humphries, too, had an exceptional presidency at FAMU. During his nearly 17-year tenure, he created the Life Gets Better Scholarship and Graduate School Feeder Programs and he more than doubled enrollment while simultaneously raising academic standards. He increased the number of National Achievement Scholars at the university ranking first in the nation three times in recruiting National Achievement Scholars beating out Harvard and Stanford. FAMU also became the nations number one producer of African Americans with baccalaureate degrees and third in the nation as the baccalaureate institution of origin for African-American doctoral degree recipients. His crowning achievement came in 1997 when FAMU was selected as the first ever TIME Magazine/Princeton Review College of the Year. Before Humphries took the stage, State University System of Florida Chancellor Frank T. Brogan, FAMUs Board of Trustees Chairman Solomon L. Badger and FAMUs President of the National Alumni Association Tommy L. Mitchell Sr. gave greetings. Murrell Dawson, director and curator of the Meek-Eaton Black Archives Research Center and Museum, gave an uplifting occasion that brought the audience to their feet. Members of the National Alumni Association spoke about rekindling the FAMU flame. Rep. Alan Williams, District 8 (Tallahassee), did a historical reading. Humphries concluded his message by challenging the audience that it was their responsibility to respond to FAMUs needs. Now is the time for you to act, said Humphries. We are survivors. FAMU will be greater than it is today because of you. Did members of the audience enjoy their history lesson of FAMU? DAndrea C. Cotton, who seemed to be bursting with joy after the convocation, expressed how excited she was to hear Humphries message and to celebrate FAMUs 125th anniversary. This place [FAMU] made me, shouted Cotton, who received her bachelors and masters degrees from FAMU. FAMU changed my life. Attending FAMU was the best decision I ever made. A native of Chicago, Ill., Cotton said that Sybil Mobley recruited her and she was the reason for her coming to FAMU. It seems that Cotton is just one of the numerous examples that FAMU is exceptional. Left to right:Frederick S. Humphries, eighth president of Florida A&M University (FAMU), James H.

Build a better breakfast: Flavor meets nutrition in the best morning meals(ARA) Mom and grandma had it right: Providing your body with a meal at the beginning of the day can have a multitude of benefits, from keeping you in a good mood to preventing bad snack habits. To get the maximum effectiveness from your breakfast, it needs to be nutrition-packed. Of course, it's just as important that what you eat to start the day is delicious. Eating foods that provide a nutritional boost will help you today and in the long run. During your day, your body can rely on foods that provide fuel, keeping you energized, alert and feeling good. And as the years go by, those healthy habits will pay off, helping your body function better for longer. Everyone knows that pleasing the palate is important after all, if it doesn't taste good, you won't want to eat it. Luckily, many of the healthiest foods are flavorful, even in their simplest forms that means a lot of taste with little effort. With that in mind, consider these options for quick, delicious breakfasts that pack a nutrition-rich punch. Toast with toppings A simple slice of bread can be so much more than just that Food For Life's new Ezekiel 4:9 Flax Sprouted Grain bread is far more than an average carbohydrate. The bread itself covers two nutrition quadrants of the USDA's My Plate both grains and protein and is available in a range of varieties, including the new flax option that delivers added Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Top your nutrient-rich toast with avocado, fresh sliced tomatoes or hummus with a squeeze of lemon for a tasty start to the day. Steel-cut oats with super fruits When you need a stick-to-your ribs morning meal, it's hard to beat oatmeal. Steel-cut oats are minimally processed and offer a hearty texture. If you want to dress up your breakfast with some touches of sweetness, look to super fruits like fresh blueberries or dried goji berries, both of which are packed with vitamins. Breakfast sandwich In most households, there are differing opinions on whether breakfast should be sweet or savory. Customizable breakfast sandwiches make for a simple solution that keeps everyone happy. Using a wholesome bread like Ezekiel 4:9 Flax Sprouted Grain Bread provides the perfect backdrop for catering to your unique taste buds. The bread's nutty, rich flavor complements everything from apples and honey to pears and almond butter (for sweet teeth) or smoked salmon with cucumbers and dill. Fruit-and-veggie smoothies Pairing fruits and vegetables for a morning smoothie is easier than you might imagine. Greens or even raw beets can be blended with berries for added nutritional benefit, but with a flavor that's fruit-forward and naturally sweet. Another popular combination is orange and carrot. Supplement your smoothie with a slice of protein-rich sprouted grain toast and you'll have a complete meal that will keep you going. It can be easy to fall into a routine of breakfast blahs with food that doesn't fill you up and leaves your taste buds unimpressed. But by adding a few new items like Ezekiel 4:9 Flax Sprouted Grain bread to your shopping list, you'll have a whole new range of options for a tasty morning meal.

The Foundation of the California African American Museums (CAAM) annual gala, An Artful Evening at CAAM, honored legendary Academy Award-winner Sir Sidney Poitier and acclaimed artist John Outterbridge with Lifetime Achievement Awards on October 6th. Emmy Award-nominated actress CCH Pounder served as mistress of ceremonies. The Honorable Fred Mitchell, The Bahamas Minister of Foreign Affairs, was on-hand to recognize more than 60 years of Poitiers remarkable accomplishments as a star of the stage and silver screen, film director, author, poet and Bahamian diplomat. We are thrilled to have the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism as a major sponsor of our biggest fundraiser of the year, said CAAM Executive Director Charmaine Jefferson. Without generous partners like The Bahamas, such a magical night would not be possible. The people of The Islands Of The Bahamas are proud to serve as a sponsor of An Artful Evening at CAAM honoring Sir Sidney Poitier, said Bahamas Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe. We congratulate Sir Sidney as the recipient of the 2012 California African American Museums Lifetime Achievement Award for his legendary acting career, courageous humanitarian work around the globe and distinguished service to the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. His remarkable achievements are truly awe-inspiring. Lindsay Thompson from Bahamas Information Services reported that the Bahamas 40th Independence Anniversary celebrations will kick off on November 2, 2012 with a star-studded concert at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island honoring legendary Bahamian actor, Academy Award winner Sir Sidney Poitier. The announcement was made during a press conference at Cabinet Office on Tuesday, October 9, during which the events were endorsed by the Rt. Hon. Perry Christie, Prime Minister. Also present were co-chairs of the Independence Committee Dr Nicolette Bethel and Charles Carter. The celebrations start November 2 3 a weekend of dedication and celebration highlighting the best in Bahamian talent combined with a special concert by Academy and Golden Globe awards winner Jennifer Hudson, who will pay a special tribute to Sir Sidney, the first black American to win an Oscar. The gospel group the Region Bells are on the list of Bahamian talent to perform. The efforts to celebrate Bahamian culture at its highest level is in keeping with the Progressive Liberal Party Charter for Governance which outlines the Governments plans to have Bahamians fully understand and appreciate the culture and heritage of their language, music, expressions, food, religion, and myths. We are going to use the 40th Anniversary as a catalyst to create this higher level of awareness about the importance of developing, properly, the ethos of country and being able to connect this island destination in a very special way through all of the components that make up this country and the characteristic spirit that makes us all Bahamians, the Prime Minister said. The Government also plans to rename the National Centre for the Performing Arts after Sir Sidney Poitier, and the Atlantis to name the bridge in his honor as well. Sir Sidney was born on February 20, 1927 in Miami to Bahamian parents, but grew up in Cat Island. In 1963 he became the first black man to win an Academy Award for his role as Homer Smith in Lilies of the Field. He served as Bahamas Non-resident Ambassador to Japan and to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. The Prime Minister confirmed that Atlantis has agreed to rename the bridge in honor of Sir Sidney. And, the national arts centre in his honor, the same as the national stadium named after Bahamian athlete Tommy A Robinson. Architect Michael Foster has been asked to submit plans for the redevelopment of the national arts theater for the renaming ceremony. The Prime Minister said he was happy that the Independence Committee chose to honor Sir Sidney although there have been a lot of debate on that. Sir Sidney not only has an incredible story, but in his later years he made significant contributions in the field of diplomacy to The Bahamas. The Prime Minister said it was a pleasure for him to speak with Sir Sidney and have him invite whom he wishes, to attend the weekend of celebrations in The Bahamas. Hopefully this would symbolize to The Bahamas at large that we are now beginning a process that is intended to unite us, intended to bring focus to what really keeps us together and to minimize what divides us, the Prime Minister said. As to how much the Government plans to spend on the celebrations, the Prime Minister agreed that it is priceless. From the point of view of what dollars we spent, we will account for them. What I do know is that I will spear no efforts to catch up with history that is escaping us now and every time one of these great ones die, they bury a part of our history with them, he said. Mr. Carter referred to Sir Sidney as the most famous Bahamian of our time. He said the celebration is the beginning of the joining of two generations from the generation that brought in Independence on July 10, 1973. At that time the population was 180,000, it has doubled since then. That generation is a diminishing one, we are on our way out and it would be sad if we did not pass the baton to the next generation, he said. It is going to be a wonderful opportunity for us to reclaim our history and our heritage. Mr. Carter will also travel the islands to solicit responses from Bahamians to find out what they like or not like about The Bahamas, and what they would like the country to be. Ms Bethel, who was a child during the 1973 Independence celebration, said that it is never too expensive to celebrate the culture of a nation. She too regards the 40th anniversary as the catalyst toward celebrating the 50th Independence. It is never too expensive to celebrate ones nationhood, that is an investment that countrys need to be making. We all need to step up and create the new Bahamas, she said. Other plans to celebrate the 40th Independence Anniversary will be announced later.

(StatePoint) Its never too soon to get your child interested in current events -and doing so can have many positive benefits, from building vocabulary and improving writing, to encouraging active and engaged citizenship. While the news might seem boring at first to kids, there are steps you can take to show them just how interesting and exciting current events can be: Read Together Ensure that your home subscribes to a daily paper. Let your children pick which articles they want to read and help them with words and concepts they dont understand. Read at least a few front page news articles together and then allow them to skip to whichever sections of the paper they find the most interesting. Many magazines run kids editions in print or online, such as Time, Sports Illustrated and National Geographic. Subscribe your child to an age-appropriate magazine or newspaper. Most children are already well-versed in using the Internet for acquiring information. Guide your children to trusted online news sources that they can access on their own. Encourage Hands-On Learning Often the most effective way to spark your childs interest is to offer him or her hands-on learning opportunities. Encourage your child to join the school newspaper or the schools television news program. Even as budget cuts loom in schools, private companies are helping schools offer their students unique educational opportunities. The Panasonic Kid Witness News program for example, a hands-on program designed to help children develop creative, cognitive and communication skills, has provided more than 150,000 children around the world access to top-notch video production equipment and an opportunity to learn a new skill they can use to make fun newscasts that are relevant to their daily lives. Each year, schools are encouraged to submit student videos on set themes and topics in formats such as newscasts, documentaries, dramas and commercials to a national and potentially global contest. Winning schools receive a package of Panasonic products that will enhance classroom learning. The videos show the world through their eyes. For more information, visit www.panasonic.net/kwn. Its important to get kids to share how they see the world. This is a perception we don't usually see in the news, says Joseph Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Panasonic Corporation of North America. Its a valuable perspective that mainstream media usually misses. Watch Together Make watching the news together a part of your evening routine. Remember, kids have limited attention spans so avoid the never ending 24-hour news programming and opt for a half-hour program that highlights all the days top stories succinctly. Use commercial breaks and dinnertime to discuss what you watched. If youre worried that the imagery will be too graphic or mature, consider recording it first and sharing with your child only the parts you feel comfortable with. By encouraging your kids to keep up with current events, you can help them gain valuable perspective and understand the world around them. ***** How to Get Kids Interested in Current Events Announcements, meetings, happenings, and community events scheduled in Jacksonville and the surrounding area Veterans Day is Coming: Ways to Honor Veterans (StatePoint) Veterans Day is coming, an annual opportunity for communities and families to honor former U.S. service members. And as these heroes age, its important to keep their stories and sacrifices alive by listening and learning. Here are some great ways to commemorate veterans this holiday: Listen to a Story You may not think about it much, but everyone has a lesson to share and a story to offer. World War II for example, which killed and injured more people than any other war in human history, impacted an entire generation -from soldiers on the frontlines of battle, to children at home participating in the war effort. Learn about both world history and your familys history by talking to older relatives and friends about their experiences and trials. You may even consider tape recording the conversation so you can share the personal account with others. If you have a story yourself, consider writing it down or retelling it at the next family gathering. Read a War Memoir While reading and understanding the past is possible by delving into a standardissue textbook, there is nothing like an eyewitness account to get a true feel for a crucial time in history. Such accounts can deliver a unique perspective on a familiar story. The tales you discover can help you better connect with history. One such book, the newly released Terror Before Dawn: A Child At War, by Anne Raghnild Fagerberg and William Sterling Williams, presents Fagerbergs account of her childhood experience during World War II under Nazi rule in Norway. Williams, Fagerbergs son, found her notes after she died of cancer in 1998. She had completed her story shortly before she passed away. Though only a child during the war, Fagerberg did what she could to contribute to winning the war, distributing newspapers and literature of the underground resistance movement. The reflections of a war survivor offer lessons about courage, survival, rebuilding and freedom, says Williams. Her piece of history needed to be preserved. More information can be found at such websites as www.amazon.com by searching for Terror Before Dawn. Teach Your Children No one is too young to learn about and honor the past. While children might enjoy a holiday parade, be sure to explain the true meaning of the day so they understand the reason for all the fanfare. Many schools choose to honor veterans by inviting them to speak at assemblies and before history classes. Find out what programs are happening at your school. Visit www.va.gov/kids for ideas on how to talk to kids about war, history and the sacrifice of veterans. Dont let this Veterans Day pass by unrecognized. Take the time to honor the past.

OCTOBER 13, 2012 THESTAR PAGEB-4 Pair of Gillislee TDs Lead Gators Past LSU in Top 10 Showdown On Saturday October 6th, the University of Florida Gators met the LSU Tigers at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The Gators relied heavily on their rushing game in the first half when it appeared that a passing strategy might have been more fitting. Many Gator fans were concerned about a potential loss, going into the second half because the Tigers played very aggressively both offensively and defensively. The Tigers went into the second half leading the home team 6-0 Attributed to a field goal kick at 10:48 in the first quarter and another 24 seconds into the second quarter. The Gators were only able to accumulate a total of 47 yards of total offense in the entire first half. The second half revealed a turn of events. In the third quarter alone they racked up 127 yards of offense and a total of 237 yards of offense for the entire game. The tipping point in the Gators' favor came at 5:15 into the 3rd quarter, when Mike Gillislee carried the ball 12 yards into COLLEGESPORTS: NCAA BANSTEXAS SOUTHERNS BASKETBALL & FOOTBALL Bye Week Comes As Opportune Time For Jacksonville By FRED WITT Florida Sports Wire The Chicago Bears finished with 501 yards of offense, 309 in the second half, in a 41-3 win over the Jaguars on Sunday at EverBank Field. The defense was led by Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs, each returning interceptions for touchdowns. The Jaguars Josh Scobee tied the game at 3-3 in the first quarter on a 31-yard field goal. I think its some of those a little bit of maybe here we go again. There was a point there in the game yesterday there was 5:45 seconds to go in the third quarter, they kicked a field goal and led 6-3. We get out on the field offensively and have a holding call on first down and we have an interception for a touchdown on the second play, said Jacksonville coach Mike Mularkey. There was just a sequence of plays that changed the momentum of the game. Weve got to not let those things affect us. Jacksonville QB Blaine Gabbert completed 17 of 33 passes for 142 yards, with those two interceptions. Maurice Jones-Drew finished with 56 yards on 12 carries. Jacksonville could only muster 108 yards on offense. Matt Forte rushed for 107 yards, his first 100yard game since last Nov. 7 against the Eagles. The 214 yards were the third most in Lovie Smith's nine seasons as Bears coach and more than double the 101 yards the Bears had averaged on the ground in their first four games. "It's a must for us," Smith said Monday. "I'm talking about the commitment of us running the ball. We're not going to always rush for 200 yards like we did [Sunday], but just the commitment that we're running it and making defenses play for the run, that's what we have to do." The Bears Robbie Gould added field goal of 32 and 31 yards. "I wish I was standing up here in a better situation, but that's not the case," said Mularkey following the game. "I told the team that I don't know how that happened, especially after a 3-3 half and playing some good football. The way it escalated out of control is is unfortunate." Chicago has won three of its last four games against Jacksonville. The Bears controlled the ball for 36 minutes. BYE WEEK BLUES Jacksonvilles next game is Oct. 21 at Oakland. The Jaguars practiced in helmets Tuesday and Wednesday during the upcoming bye week. Collective bargaining agreement rules mandate players have four consecutive days off during a bye week, so they will be off Thursday through Sunday. Mularkey described the bye week practices as going to be pretty stressful. INJURY UPDATE The Jaguars hope linebacker Daryl Smith will return for the first game after the bye, at Oakland. Smith has missed the first five games of the season with a groin injury. Wide receiver Laurent Robinson remains in the clubs concussion program and will not practice this week. His status for the Raiders is uncertain. AFC SOUTH NOTEBOOK Houston Texans (5-0) linebacker Brian Cushing left Monday's 23-17 victory over the New York Jets in the second quarter with a left knee injury. Cushing suffered the injury in the second quarter. The 2009 Defensive Rookie of the Year had 24 tackles and an interception through the first four games this season. Reggie Wayne caught 13 passes for a career-high 212 yards, which included the go-ahead touchdown with 35 second to play as Indianapolis (2-2) downed the Green Bay Packers, 3027, on Sunday. QB Matt Hasselbeck will start at quarterback for the Tennessee Titans (1-4) when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jake Locker is still recovering from an injured left. Hasselbeck also started in Sunday's 30-7 loss at Minnesota. JAGUARS PARTNERING WITH SCOUTS Jaguars owner Shad Khan announced that the Jaguars and the Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council are partnering to kick off the Every Boy Deserves a Chance Matching Gift Campaign. The Jaguars Foundation will match dollar-for-dollar for every donation made, up to $100,000. Brian Sexton, the game-day radio play by play announcer, is the honorary chair of the grassroots campaign. For more information about the campaign, or to make a gift, please contact the North Florida Council at 904-388-0591 or tim.forman@scouting.org. UP NEXT After the bye week, the Jaguars travel to Oakland to play the Raiders (1-3) on Oc. 21. It will be the first of two road games before returning to EverBank Field to host the Detroit Lions on Nov. 3. Oakland will be coming off a road game against Atlanta. The Jaguars will visit Green Bay on Oct. 28 before returning home. HOUSTON -The NCAA banned Texas Southern's basketball program from the 2012-13 postseason and the football program from the 2013 and 2014 postseason, citing recruiting violations, academic issues, the use of ineligible athletes and exceeding scholarship limits. The Division I Infractions Committee outlined widespread violations, spanning 13 sports over a sevenyear period in a report released Tuesday. Other penalties include five years' probation, scholarship limitations in football and basketball and the vacation of all team records from the 2006-10 in all sports, and including the 2010-11 records for football and women's soccer. In 2010, Texas Southern won its first SWAC football championship since 1968. The NCAA cited Texas Southern for "lack of institutional control" and noted the school as a "double repeat violator." the end zone for a UF's first touchdown of the game. With just over 13 minutes remaining on the clock he drove another touchdown into the end zone. Although Gillisilee is credited for the touchdowns that won the game, the Gator kicker and defense were major reason why it was possible. Sophomore punter Kyle Christy kicked three of his four punts inside the10-yard line in the first half. The defense continually brought the pressure on the LSU Tigers that kept them at bay and made the win possible. Junior defensive back Matt Elam captured seven tackles in the game to lead the Gators defense. He also forced a fumble that led to Florida's second score of the day. Florida's defense held LSU to 0-for-7 on third downs in the first half. By the conclusion of the game, the Tigers finished at 1-for-13-converting for the first time on third down with approximately 11:30 remaining in the fourth quarter. PHOTOS:GatorZone

My Faith My VoteRev. Geoffrey A. Black General Minister and PresidentI am a believer and I vote. I might amplify that statement with this. Because I am a believer and a disciple of Jesus, I vote. My faith, my basic beliefs and the act of voting are integral to each other. So, I begin with a foundational teaching of Jesus and of the Judeo-Christian tradition. In the Gospel According to Mark Chapter 12 one of the scribes asked Jesus, Which commandments is the first of all? Jesus answered, The first is, Hear O Israel: the Lord our God is one; you shall love the lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. In response to the scribe, I like to say, Jesus leads with love love of God, love of neighbor and love of self. As with faith and voting, I understand that these two commandments are integral to each other. For me voting is love in action. It is about loving God, neighbor and about self. Therefore, I vote for candidates who are likely to enact policies that honor God and are in the best interest of my neighbors. Of course, I also vote in my own self -interest and that too is an act of love. However, I want to be clear voting in my own self-interest is not about being selfish. Policies that are truly beneficial to me are policies that serve the common good. They are the kind of policies that will make life better for all. Moreover, voting is an act of self-expression in the public realm. As an individual it is a way for me to participate fully in this society and the world. I understand self-expression to be an essential element of self-love. Today the interconnectedness of the world is more apparent than ever before in history. We live in a global economy. As Christians we share a faith tradition with people around the world. They are our neighbors. When I cast a vote, I do so with them in mind. In this respect also, I strive to vote for candidates, who are likely to enact policies that will reflect love policies that eschew fear and hatred. I am a child of the Civil Rights Movement. My neighbors engaged in this struggle for justice and equality so that all would have the right to vote. My love for those neighbors is framed in sacred memory of the many people of all races, men, women and children, who were injured or killed in that struggle. I vote with gratitude and paying homage to them. In his teachings, Jesus was always pointing to the Realm of God. He taught about it and he taught his followers to pray for it, Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. For me, the realm of God is the social, political and spiritual ideal. We are to strive for it in all of our living which includes our voting. The United Church of Christ has 5,194 churches throughout the United States. Rooted in the Christian traditions of congregational governance and covenantal relationships, each UCC setting speaks only for itself and not on behalf of every UCC congregation. UCC members and churches are free to differ on important social issues, even as the UCC remains principally committed to unity in the midst of our diversity.

Three Arrested in Crime Spree Three men were arrested after committing numerous crimes. According to reports, the crime spree started at 12:47 p.m. when a resident reported that two men barged into his garage and stole his white 1995 Lincoln Town Car at gunpoint. They tied the man up using an electrical cord from a fan, shut him inside the garage, and sped away in the car. The victim did not sustain any injuries. At 1:05 p.m., employees at a bank called 911 to report that they had just been robbed. They also reported that the robbers got away in a white Lincoln Town Car. Police were able to make the connection between the home invasion and the bank robbery and searched the area for the stolen car. The vehicle was soon found abandoned behind a supermarket. Police found out that the suspects had changed vehicles to avoid being caught. Police soon located the suspects on the road, but the suspects wrecked the car alongside the highway near a ramp at about 1:17 p.m. They then fled on foot into the nearby woods, but law enforcement flooded the area and the three men were quickly captured. One was bitten by a police K-9 and was later transported to the hospital for treatment. Nobody else during the crime spree were injured. Police arrested Winsor V. Lyles, 32, Stacy L. Taylor, 32, and Christopher Donaldson, 36. All three men were charged with kidnapping, armed home invasion, and grand theft of a motor vehicle. They are being held without bond. According to police, all these men have extensive criminal history. Lyles was released from prison in 2011 after serving time for attempted first-degree murder.

C&J 2 THE STAR OCTOBER 13, 2012 SSSHH! From Actual Police ReportsDid You Hear About?... Did You Hear About?... EDITORS NOTE: All suspects are deemed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. Does Your Child Know About Stranger Safety? A missing kid is a frightening experience for any parent. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), 800,000 children younger than 18 are missing annually an average of 2,185 children reported missing daily. Sixty-three percent of the abductions involve non-family members such as a babysitter, friend, long-term acquaintance, neighbor, caretaker or person of authority; whereas, 37 percent of the abductions involve a stranger. Most abductions occur during the day while a child is walking home or riding a bicycle between the hours of two and seven in the evening. In a recent NBC special documentary, My Kid Would Never Do That: Stranger Danger, elementary school kids were tested on what they would do when approached by a stranger. The kids were not aware they were being videotaped by NBC and watched by their parents. The children were only informed that they were participating in a community project to make posters for U.S. troops. The hope was that the kids would remember the things their parents taught them about getting into a vehicle with a stranger. The kids participating in the experiment included the NBC reporters own son, a set of twins, three girls who did not know each other and three boys that knew each other. The children were all faced with the same challenge: a stranger in an ice cream truck offers free ice cream and coerces them to come into the truck and look at the trucks music machine. All of the kids had been coached by their parents about the dangers of talking and accepting items from strangers. The results of the experiment were disappointing and scary. Of the twins, one child was reluctant to get in the truck, refused to accept ice cream and expressed that they would have to ask their parents about the strangers requests. The other twin took the ice cream. The three girls who did not know each other became very excited about the arrival of the ice cream truck. All of the girls followed the stranger to the back of the truck and one of them got into the truck, received her ice cream and started marveling over the trucks music machine. One of the three girls who had been taught repeatedly by her father (a police officer) about stranger safety, pulled the other girl away from the truck and told her that it was a scam. With the repeated coercing of the stranger, the two girls cautiously approached the side of the truck and reluctantly got ice cream from the stranger. Of the three boys who were very good friends, one child stayed back (the NBC reporters son) while the other two boys followed the stranger to the truck. Eventually, all three boys got their ice cream with the reporters son running for safety behind the project area. All of the parents were disappointed with their children and realized they had to work more with them to help them understand the dangers of talking with strangers and accepting items from them. To avoid potential abductions, NCMEC provides the following safety tips for children and parents: For children, they should (1) avoid being tricked by adults who offer special gifts or treats such as ice cream; (2) get approval from your parents before you go or do anything with a stranger; (3) say no to all requests by strangers and (4) take a friend when you go somewhere. Parents should (1) teach kids to avoid getting in or going towards a strangers vehicle; (2) establish rules for where they can go in the neighborhood (3) practice roleplaying various scenarios and (4) keep open lines of communication. Keeping our children safe is a major responsibility of parents. In todays environment, our children can be faced with untold scams that can ultimately harm them mentally and physically. As parents, we must diligently train our children about how to handle strangers and the actions they can take when they are in dangerous situations. Your Safety Two Arrested for Trying to Move into Vacant Homes Two women were arrested for trespassing and trying to gain ownership of vacant homes. At approximately 6 p.m., police responded to a residence in reference to a trespasser. Police met the homeowner who told them that he found an unknown family living in his house. The house was vacant prior to this incident because of Chinese drywall. The police obtained the names of the people residing in the house and advised them to leave the premises. 43-year-old Tami Robinson told police that she obtained an adverse possession to get ownership of the property from the court and believed she was residing in the house legally. About a week later, police responded back to court to confirm the parties had moved into the home. About five days later, at approximately 6:42 p.m., deputies responded to another location. Police made contact with 39-year-old Samantha Magras, who stated she just recently moved into the residence. Magras also stated she did not purchase and is not renting the residence. She stated that her friend, Tami Robinson, was filing for adverse possession. She also told police she had a locksmith change the locks. The owner of this home is an active member of the United States Air Force and left town to Texas. In Florida, people are able to gain ownership of a property if they fix it up and occupy it for seven years as they pay the taxes. But in this case, authorities say the two women were trespassing and these rules did not apply to them. Police say once the suspects changed the locks on the residence, they prevented the actual property owner from accessing the residence. Police arrested both suspects and each were charged with two counts of home invasion by false personation, two counts of organized scheme to defraud, two counts of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, and two counts of grand theft. Both are being held on $69,500 bond. Tami Robinson Samantha Magras

OCTOBER 13, 2012 THE STAR PR 1 FAMU SBI Students Place First and Second at Globe-WithoutBorders Business Case Competition TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Students from the Florida A&M University (FAMU) School of Business and Industry recently won first and second places in the 2012 Globe-Without-Borders Business Case Competition sponsored by Savannah State University. Other universities represented in the competition were Georgia Southern University, Savannah State University and South University. Globe-Without-Borders Global Business Case Competition is an annual case competition that brings together undergraduate business students to compete in a challenging business case study. The program allows students to analyze and develop a business recommendation within 96 hours. The students skill sets, determination, and sacrifice were remarkable, and I knew going into the competition that both teams were strong contenders, said Rashada Houston, faculty adviser. For both teams to place, it proved that FAMU students have the scholastic aptitude to compete on any level and perform at a superior level. Competing teams worked under pressure to solve a real problem, using simulated business conditions such as time-critical deadlines and incomplete information, to formulate workable, action-oriented recommendations. Team one consisted of: Zachary Addy, a senior business student from Chicago, Ill., Brandon Camille, a senior business student from Long Island, N.Y.; and Tiana McClellan, a senior accounting student from Detroit, Mich. Team two consisted of the following: Breyon Love, a senior business administration student from Atlanta, Ga.; Shayna Gunn, a senior accounting student from Miami, Fla.; and Hillrod Lumpkin, a senior accounting and business student from Southfield, Mich. Teams were judged by a panel of industry and academic experts including CEOs, top management executives and consultants. The teams had 20 minutes to present their case analysis and recommendations from a required written overview. Judges based their decisions on such criteria as the depth and comprehensiveness of analysis, relevance, originality, persuasiveness and overall presentation. The moment one of our teams won second place, I felt like FAMUs faculty won also, Houston said. It was an example of our hard work paying off. Day in and day out, we spend countless hours in the classroom preparing our students and this competition was an opportunity to prove to faculty that the students are learning. And when our other team was announced as the first place winner, I was overjoyed because it shows our that we remain an institution of academic excellence.Photo captions: FAMU Team 1 -1st Place School of Business and Industry students (from left to right) Brandon Camille, Tiana McClellan and Zachary Addy won first place in the GlobeWithout-Borders Business Case Competition.

OCTOBER 13, 2012 THE STAR PR 2 Make Your Scholarship Essay Stand Out(NAPS)There could be good news for many students. Plenty of generous people and organizations donate each year to scholarship funds that help Americans meet their educational goals. Aspiring students can easily learn where and how to apply by visiting sites such as ScholarshipAmerica.org. A critical part of the application process is often a personal essay on a single, weighty topic: Who has influenced you the most and why? Why do you want to be in your selected profession? Ten years from today, where do you see yourself? and the like. Before you even think about opening up a Word doc, though, you may care to heed this advice to help you avoid essay mistakes: 1.Dont rush. Good writing requires time and clear focus. With school, friends and extracurricular activities competing for a share of your life, its easy to push that scholarship essay aside until the last minute. Bad idea. Start the essay long before its due, put some time aside to work on it a little each night or on the weekends, and remember: The best writing is rewriting. Schedule time to revise. 2.Know your audience. Some scholarship funds like an upbeat essay, others prefer a formal voice. You wont know until you do a little research. Go to the sponsoring organizations website and read its mission, history and programs. Youll get a sense of the organizations personality, which will help you tailor your essay to fit what reviewers want. 3.Obey the rules of good writing. U can get away w/ broken English when ur texting or chatting w/ friends but it wont work for ur essay. Scholarships want 2 give $ to smart peeps and writin like this makes u look like u dont care. So write in English not in text and use proper grammar and punctuation. K? :) 4.Be interesting. Scholarship reviewers read hundreds, sometimes thousands of essays every year. So yours needs to stand out. Answering the question is a must, but so is creativity. Dont fill space with superficial and predictable information. Use images, examples, anecdotes and other storytelling techniques to make your writing richer. Consider this example: My father inspires me because he puts his life on the line daily as a Chicago police officer. Compare that to this essay opening: Every day at 5 a.m. sharp, Dad rolls quietly out of bed, puts on his police uniform and carefully buckles his gun belt around his waist. Meanwhile, Mom starts her day with a prayer that Dad will come home safely from the streets of Chicago. 5.Read it out loud. People learn language by hearing it, so the clearest voice is close to conversational. Instead of simply using your eyes when you revise, employ your ears as well. With a pen-and-paper copy in hand, read your entire essay aloud, jotting changes as needed. By hearing how the document flows, you can catch clunky sentences and eliminate those pesky grammar mistakes that your eyes might overlook. 6.Get a second opinion. See if your school has a writing center where you can get advice on your essay. Take advantage of these resources. Or e-mail your essay to your parents or other trusted advisers. A fresh set of eyes can prevent a big mistake. Getting scholarship money may be easier when you know the write way to go about it.THE COLOR PURPLE Sept. 28 Oct. 14 Sheran Shelton, the Director of A Magical Beginning Learning Academy Would like to share 5 Great tips for creating a life time reader in your child: 1.
