King, the youngest daughter of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. hailed the inauguration of the nations first black president to a new term as one of the achievements made possible by the civil rights struggle her father helped lead decades ago. Bernice King spoke at an Atlanta service Monday on the federal King holiday, urging Americans to draw inspiration from her slain fathers nonviolent campaign after a difficult year of military conflicts abroad and natural disasters at home. We pray that this day will be the beginning of a new day in America,Ž she said. It will be a day when people draw inspiration from the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. It will be a day when people realize and recognize that if it were not for Dr. King and those who fought the fight fought in that movement, we would not be celebrating this presidency.Ž Mondays King holiday „ marked by parades, rallies and service projects around the nation „ coincided with celebrations of President Barack Obamas inauguration to a second term in Washington. Many paused to take stock of the progress made by the country since the 1960s fight to end racial segregation „ and of challenges ahead as Obama assumed a second term. In Washington, Obama spoke proudly of having taken the oath of office using a Bible that had been owned by King. It was one of two he used for the ceremonial inauguration Monday, watched by hundreds of thousands. I had the great privilege that the Bible we used was his Bible and they asked for it to be inscribed,Ž Obama said after the ceremony. The other Bible belonged to President Abraham Lincoln. Dozens in the crowd thronging outside the U.S. Capitol to see Obama sworn in stopped first outside the King Memorial for photographs. Across the nation, many Americans paused to reflect on King and the changes wrought in the nation since the civil rights era. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley called the King celebration in that state a great day for America.Ž Hundreds of people rallied in Montgomery, Ala., not far from where King spoke at the end of a march in 1965 between the Alabama cities of Selma and Montgomery against the racial segregation. An Alabama state representative, Thad McClammy, said Kings speech there in 1965 was one of the first steps in a nonviolent campaign that opened the way for new opportunities for minorities. It paved the way all the way from Selma to Montgomery to Washington, D.C.,Ž said McClammy Parades and rallies were held across many states to salute the slain civil rights leader. He was 39 years old when killed.Lcemuqpxknng‘u"Octvkp"Nwvjgt"Mkpi Lt0"48vj"Cppwcn"DtgcmhcuvYgneqog"Tgegrvkqp"hqt"vjg" Pgy"EGQ"qh"LVC Tqzkg"Ueqvv/ Mqvd."85 Fctt{n"F0"Ueqvv."62He is her adopted son, yet he killed this Gainesville lady by striking her head several times. Afterwards, he took her 2007 Mercury and traded it for crack cocaine said Gainesville police. Ms. Scott-Kotb had not been seen since January 5, 2013 and some of her relatives found her body on January 13 in her Bivens Cove apartment, according to the Gainesville Police Department. It appeared she had been dead for several days, police said. Neighbors, friends and family said Scott-Kotb was a strong and caring woman who lived by a motto: Help others before you help yourself, and treat other people how you want to be treated. They said Scott-Kotb especially applied this to her adopted son, Darryl Dwayne Scott, 40, who family said was living with her after a 12-year stint in prison for attempted murder. "My kindness is going to kill me," Scott-Kotb once told a neighbor Scott was arrested on a charge of murder and grand theft. Police spotted him Sunday in Orange County driving a car „ a 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo „ they say he stole from Gator City Motors, where he worked detailing vehicles. The officer in Central Florida ran a check on Scott and discovered he was wanted in Gainesville for murder, GPD officer Ben Tobias said. Police found Ms. Scott-Kotbs car on January 14. The last time anyone recalled seeing Scott-Kotb alive was on January 5 when a neighbor saw her and the car. An autopsy showed Scott-Kotb died from blunt-force trauma to the head, Her car and her purse were missing when she was found.Nghv"vq"tkijv<"Okejcgn"Dnc{nqem"*tgvktgf"htqo"LVC+="Ft0"Lqjpp{"Ichhpg{ /"Lcemuqpxknng"Ekv{"Eqwpekn"cpf"LVC"Nkckuqp="Hn0"Uvcvg"Tgr0"Okc Lqpgu="Tgikpcnf"Ichhpg{"/"Lczrqtv"Dqctf"Ogodgt1Gzgewvkxg"Fktgevqt qh"ETE="Pcvjcpkgn"Hqtf."EGQ"LVC="Cxc"Rctmgt."LVC"Dqctf"Ogodgt= E{pvjkc"Cwuvkp."LGC"Dqctf"Ogodgt="Mkodgtn{"Fcpkgnu."Lcemuqpxknng Ekv{"Eqwpekn="Oc{qt"Cnxkp"Dtqyp="Hqtogt"Uvcvg"Ugpcvqt"Vqp{"Jknn Nghv"vq"Tkijv<""Ft0"Lqjpp{"Ichhpg{."Lcemuqpxknng"Ekv{"Eqwpeknocp= Rcwnc"Ytkijv."Fwxcn"Eqwpv{"Uejqqn"Dqctf."Mkodgtn{"Fcpkgnu.

PAGE 4THE STARJANUARY 26, 2013 Celebrating the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. on the Eve of the Inauguration of President Barack Obama to a Second Term Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome. Extraordinary, adj: going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary. In the past week I heard the word extraordinary used on several occasions. It was used by President Obama during his Inauguration speech and Mayor Alvin Brown and Ambassador Andrew Young at the 26thAnnual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast on Friday, January 18, 2013. It was extraordinary! The keynote speaker was Ambassador Andrew Young himself an icon of the Civil Rights era. He marched along side Dr. King, was imprisoned for civil rights demonstrations with Dr. King, and was beaten, along with Dr. King, by vicious opponents of the change Dr. King stood for in those days. In his speech, Young, a former U.S. Congressman, Mayor of Atlanta, U.N. Ambassador, and close advisor and friend of Dr. King, recounted the days of the Civil Rights Movement. And, while his message was food for fodder for all at the event, it was especially aimed at the young people selected as Tomorrows LeadersŽ, who were also honored at the Breakfast. Referring to an upcoming education summit convening in Jacksonville by Mayor Alvin Brown February 28-March 1, he praised the Mayor and the community for focusing on equal access education to build jobs for the next generation. Education gives you options,Ž said Mayor Brown in a press conference after the main event. I will work until I leave this earth to improve the quality of public education in [Jacksonville].Ž He vowed to employ an education theme every year at the MLK Breakfast as long as he is mayor. He called Dr. King an ordinary man with an extraordinary visionŽ for the U.S. He was well prepared and had a good education,Ž said Brown. Ambassador Young told the audience of nearly 2,500 that Dr. King recognized the inherent dangers of being the face of the Civil Rights movement. According to Young, Dr. King believed, If four hundred Secret Service could not keep President Kennedy alive, thenƒŽ ones fate is in the hands of destiny. He urged citizens to keep guns out of the daily struggles that we face, and act in a spirit of forgiveness. He referred to the example set by Dr. Kings assassination, likening the bullet which felled him as an instrument releasing the spirit of Dr. King around the world as the Berlin Wall came down, the lone Chinese student stood down a column of tanks in Tianamen Square, and the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) dissolved. Young spoke about the progress of St. Augustine in the 50 years since he was jailed during a demonstration in the nations oldest city and Jacksonville civil rights attorney, the late Earl M. Johnson, Sr., arranged the release of the arrested demonstrators and advised King, (Rev. Ralph) Abernathy, and Young. At the press conference, I asked Ambassador Young to comment on what he thought Dr. Kings position might be today about the new gun laws. Dr. King did not believe guns provided security or safety. He would have focused on education, the lost and the lonely.Ž Referring to Dr. Kings last book, Chaos or Community Young said, Were on the verge of chaos. But, the answer is not guns. The answer is community. Bring community together, guns go back in the drawer.Ž Dr. Nikolai Vitti Superintendent of Duval County Public Schools, also attended the breakfast and press conference. He praised the Mayors focus on education and for recognizing that their jobs in that regard are intertwined. He emphasized strengthening education and civic involvement as key to transforming any city. He plans to continue engaging the community and schools by going into the community instead of waiting for the community to reach out to him. Winners and runners-up of the State Farm sponsored Tomorrows LeadersŽ were recognized during the program. First place winners recited their winning essay and received an award at the breakfast. The Tomorrows LeadersŽ program recognizes elementary, middle and high school students who exemplify the ideals and principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and excel in community volunteerism, leadership and civic responsibility. The 2013 first place winners are: Tianna Terry 5thGrade, Amber Kristin Brown 6thGrade, and Duane Moore, Jr ., 12thGrade, elementary, middle school, and high school divisions, respectively. The runners-up are SheilaHodges JaQuon Baker and Haley Geeser elementary, middle school, and high school divisions, respectively. The story of high school winner, Duane Moore, Jr. drew a collective emotional response from the audience as he told of estrangement from his family, which forced him into homelessness. Through Daniel, the non-profit agency that provides support to children suffering from abuse, neglect, or abandonment, the high school senior now lives in a rented apartment provided by the agency, is employed, and attends Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, where he is a vocal and visual arts student. He plans to attend college to concentrate on 3-D animation or voice. As I listened to Duane, I remembered a young man who presented at the MLK Breakfast many years ago, whose community and school involvement was so inspiring that Dr. Adam Herbert, then President of UNF, approached the podium and offered the young man a full scholarship to the University upon graduation from high school. That young man was Rahman Johnson, the current Chair of the Ritz Theatre and Museum Foundation. I hope that Duane Moores story will spur someone of influence or means to give this extraordinary young man a similar boost on his path to a successful future. "I have a dream this morning..."

LOCAL PAGE 6 JANUARY 26, 2013 Florida Florida Star Readers Best 2013 Inaugural Moments By Marsha Dean Phelts and Michael R. Phelts The 57thPresidential Inauguration on January 21, 2013, was a historic day in several ways and witnessed by millions all over the world. What a day of memorable moments for us when Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated, shortly before noon for his second term as the 44thPresident of the United States of America. Until memory fades, this glorious day will remain swaddled in the hearts of so very many. An estimated 1 million people from the United States and nearly everywhere else ascended around the Capitol Building in Washington, DC to be there. On the streets, the people proudly proclaimed the President and his Inauguration as Back-2-Back.Ž To participate in Back-2-BackŽ 2008/2012 events of such magnitude, thousands of The Florida Star Readers showed up to be with POTUS*, FLOTUS** and the First Family. Car loads of Florida and Georgia families and friends plied their way along the 800-1000 mile long journey to the National Mall. There were as well, numerous bus trips to the nations capital sponsored by local organizations including the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Congresswoman Corrine Browns constituents in Congressional District 5 have become accustomed to the Friends of Corrine Brown excursions to the Nations Capital. For Inauguration 2013 Friends of Corrine Brown sponsored Luxury Coaches and Amtrak Train services to Capitol Hill where they were hospitably received. Congresswoman Brown provided her guests with tickets to either watch the activities from National Mall or from the comfort of the cherry veneer, granite and marbled chambers of the Rayburn Office Building. The call was the individuals to make. Electoral College Delegate, Leon Belton, and his wife, Joan, of Panama City who traveled with our group, were privileged to be seated up front with other distinguished guests of the President on the lawn of the United States Capitol. January 21, 2013 was an official Red Letter Day for two reasons. First, it was the 27thcelebration and observation of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday/Holiday. The second reason was that this was the day of the 57thPresidential Inauguration. The Florida Star asked its readers to share their thoughts and memories of their Best 2013 Inaugural Moments. This is what they had to sayƒ Former Florida State Senator Tony Hill For me standing on the National Mall and looking all around at the diversity in the crowd was a touching moment. Watching the First Family riding up Pennsylvania Avenue was an awesome sight. As I stated four years ago, 2008 was Historical!!! 2012 is personal!!! What a Grand Celebration last weekend in DC. The time is now and only together can we move forward, with that said, four more years.Ž Executive Director and Board Member Middle Passage Markers Project, Ann Chinn and Dr. Charles Cobb, Jr. This was the first presidential inaugural address that addressed citizenship in such an all-inclusive manner. Personally we feel that one of the strengths of a US President of African heritage is that the inclusion of all people in the concept of this nation is not perfunctory but sincerely heartfelt. This perspective can be simply believed and conveyed in a way that no previous national political leader could. Thats one of Obamas strengths.Ž Rebecca Highsmiths Family, Children and Siblings Martha Allen, Susan Lavett Tillman, Denise Jackson Venus Highsmith and Rebecca Highsmith all say: Our Best Moments in the 2013 Inauguration were: Being in the Representatives offices watching our President taking the Presidential oath a second time. To watch both President and Mrs. Obama ride passed us in their car with such a charming smile. We were thrilled to have witnessed such a prestigious function. None of us ever dreamed that we would have seen nor would have had to opportunity to be in Washington, D. C. for this occasion. This was an experience of a life time full of excitement, enjoyable time mingling with family, friends, and others from all parts of the country. Congresswoman Corrine Brown showed her beauty, poise, and went out of her way to make sure we the people of her district enjoyed themselves. Many thanks go out to Congresswoman Brown for showing up and showing out! Elder Leroy and Brenda Hutchins; Coach Ben Simmons, II and Benjie Simmons, III Our best inaugural moment was when we were part of the crowd that received the  first presidential waveŽ at the parade. We were positioned at the foot of the Capitols north side in an uncharacteristically small crowd of people and news reporters. We waited patiently for the motorcade to leave the White house. We witnessed the pageantry of the bands representing each of the armed forces as they marched in strict formation down the hill and made precise steps in maneuvering a left turn. There was even a fife and drum corps dressed in their 1776 uniforms. Then the moment came as the presidents car slowly followed the path. Just as the vehicle made the left turn and before the secret service vehicles overshadowed the car, the driver stopped. Then we saw the hand and a faint glimpse of a smile from none other than President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. The crowd went wild.....and we did too! Linda J. Cooper, PRIDE Book Club This was my first inauguration. I loved being in the midst of people of all nationalities and other countries coming together as a living witness to the second swearing in of our 44th president. During the course of the day I walked among many people and stood in line at several security check points with no angry words or exchanges you would expect with that many people involved. With all of the political dysfunction, the Inauguration Day gave me true hope of what it feels like to be part of a collective group and I will never forget that day! Jackie D. Hart, Educator Gainesville My best moment of the 2013 Inauguration was to experience the electricity of hundreds of people at the MLK Memorial celebrating Kings birthday; and at the same time, celebrate with thousands„our 44th President at the 57th Inauguration of America. This was an awesome moment for me, to celebrate two of the greatest African American men of my time. Kayaunna Dean, 1stGrader at Sommerset Academy My best Inauguration moment was when my dad and I were walking down the street and then I saw the White House right in front of me up the hill. The White House is the biggest house Ive ever seen. (Little Kayaunnas dad couldnt get her to understand that she was looking at the Capitol Building and not the White House). Kyle Dean Deans Environmental Lawn Service and Pest Control My best moment of the Inauguration was being a part of the whole process. I had a smile on my face that lasted from the moment we left Jacksonville until long after our return. I even smiled in my sleep. Going to the 1st, and 2nd, Inauguration of the 1st African American President of the United States of America was a great historical moment for me. Both times I was able to personally experience the good feelings and excitement of Americans and from people from all over the world. Roslyn Auntie RozŽ Burrough Performer I was a guest at a flawless commemoration celebration of the Inauguration in the home of Delores Gardner James and Family. There were about 50 baby boomers and elders in attendance. I will always treasure looking and listening to our Brilliant, Fine Brother President take the oath, (I stood, raised my right hand and took the oath with him.) sharing ƒ experiencing the prayers and grunts and tears of pride and joy in that room was awesome. I could see the history and feel the promise. There are many best moments; President Obama s perfect all inclusive unifying speech!... So-o-o-o many best moments. I am grateful to be well and in my right mindŽ so that I can add this experience to my blessed memories as I move forward with the purpose GOD has for my life!! Marsha Dean Phelts, Author of The American Beach Cookbook Eating delicious macaroni and cheese, collard greens and cornbread, stew beef and rice, baked chicken, etc, in the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Meeting Room of the Rayburn House Office Building while watching President Obamas Commander In Chief commanding walkŽ out of the United States Capitol Building on to the platform to take his second oath of office as President of the United States, with his right hand on the Bible that Martin Luther King, Jr. prayed from on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This was my moment, my best moment. This was a day of special moments for me for just 69 years ago on this very date, January 21, 1944, I was born to Charles and Eva Cobb Rosier at Brewster Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. As fate would destine it Barack Hussein Obama will forever be the 44thPresident of the United States of America. Until memory fades, this glorious day will remain swaddled in my heart. *POTUS President of the United States **FLOTUS First Lady of the United States Sylvia Briley with the Congresswoman, Little Miss Kayaunna and her dad, Kyle Dean

On Martin Luther King Day 2013, Myrlie EversWilliams became the first female and first African-American to lead the Presidential Inaguration invocation. With President Barack Obama being the first of leader of color for the US and using bibles once owned by President Abraham Lincoln who freed slaves 150 years ago and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr for his oath, it marked a bittersweet occassion to show their efforts were not in vain.

Falcons Fall To 49ers In Front Of Atlanta Crowd, 28-24 JANUARY 26, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9 Head coach Mike Smith announced during his Monday news conference after Sundays 28-24 loss in the NFC Championship game that quarterback Matt Ryan was injured near the end of the game. Smith said the injury was a sprained left shoulder. If we had the outcome that we wanted last night, he would have participated in the game in New Orleans,Ž Smith said Monday. Smith added that Ryan would not be playing in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii this weekend. Smith also said that Ryan would not require surgery. He will be rehabbing here over the next couple of weeks and then hell get on to his offseason,Ž Smith said, who added that the training staff feels its a three-tofour-week recovery period, meaning Ryan will be ready to go when the Falcons start offseason training April 24. Ryan possibly becomes the second of three Falcons to say theyll miss this weekends Pro Bowl. Tight end Tony Gonzalez said after Sundays game that he likely wont play in theFormer Jacksonville Giant, Christian Laettner To Receive 2012 Championship RingDuke University standout, NBA veteran, and Olympic Dream TeamŽ gold medalist, Christian Laettner, was presented with a National Championship Ring from the 2012 National Champions Jacksonville Giants owner Ron Sholes on Friday night. Laettner played five games for the Giants during its 2011-2012 Championship run before being selected mid-season as Assistant Coach of the NBA Development League team, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Laettner will be best remembered by the Giants for his assist in the first game of the Giants 2011-2012 season where the Giants faced the tough Gulf Coast Flash,Ž said Sholes. With three seconds left and the GIANTS behind by two points, Laettner inbounded the ball with ease to Mike Polite who dropped it off to Currye Todd who drained a 30-foot jump shot. The crowd went wild!Ž Head Coach Kevin Waters said of Laettner, He not only played, he coached, too. The team enjoyed learning from one of the all-time champions of the sport of basketball. His efforts in that first game accomplished our win and gave the team well-needed confidence to win.Ž At the end of the 2012 season, Laettner was selected as a television color commentator for the 2012 Summer Olympics held in London, England. And this past December, the 1992 Olympic Dream Team was recognized with a float in 2012 Macys Day Parade, with Laettner waving proudly from the float. When asked about the experience, he modestly stated, Being on that float was one of the highlights of my life. It is hard to put into words the feeling you get being cheered on by millions of spectators and knowing that nearly 100 million people are watching on television.Ž Today, Christian, 44, runs his own youth basketball training camp (Christian Laettner Basketball Academy) and works with professional athletes wishing to improve their basketball skills and technique. game, either. Gonzalezs reasoning does not have to do with injury. Meanwhile, the Falcons continue to press on. They announced that they have signed wide receiver Marcus Jackson, guard Jacques McClendon, defensive tackle Micanor Regis, wide receiver James Rodgers, linebacker Pat Schiller, tight end Andrew Szczerba, cornerback Peyton Thompson and running back Josh Vaughan to reserve/future contracts. Atlanta singing star Usher Raymond shows support for his home team, the Falcons.

King, the youngest daughter of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. hailed the inauguration of the nations first black president to a new term as one of the achievements made possible by the civil rights struggle her father helped lead decades ago. Bernice King spoke at an Atlanta service Monday on the federal King holiday, urging Americans to draw inspiration from her slain fathers nonviolent campaign after a difficult year of military conflicts abroad and natural disasters at home. We pray that this day will be the beginning of a new day in America, she said. It will be a day when people draw inspiration from the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. It will be a day when people realize and recognize that if it were not for Dr. King and those who fought the fight fought in that movement, we would not be celebrating this presidency. Mondays King holiday marked by parades, rallies and service projects around the nation coincided with celebrations of President Barack Obamas inauguration to a second term in Washington. Many paused to take stock of the progress made by the country since the 1960s fight to end racial segregation and of challenges ahead as Obama assumed a second term. In Washington, Obama spoke proudly of having taken the oath of office using a Bible that had been owned by King. It was one of two he used for the ceremonial inauguration Monday, watched by hundreds of thousands. I had the great privilege that the Bible we used was his Bible and they asked for it to be inscribed, Obama said after the ceremony. The other Bible belonged to President Abraham Lincoln. Dozens in the crowd thronging outside the U.S. Capitol to see Obama sworn in stopped first outside the King Memorial for photographs. Across the nation, many Americans paused to reflect on King and the changes wrought in the nation since the civil rights era. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley called the King celebration in that state a great day for America. Hundreds of people rallied in Montgomery, Ala., not far from where King spoke at the end of a march in 1965 between the Alabama cities of Selma and Montgomery against the racial segregation. An Alabama state representative, Thad McClammy, said Kings speech there in 1965 was one of the first steps in a nonviolent campaign that opened the way for new opportunities for minorities. It paved the way all the way from Selma to Montgomery to Washington, D.C., said McClammy Parades and rallies were held across many states to salute the slain civil rights leader. He was 39 years old when killed.Lcemuqpxknngu"Octvkp"Nwvjgt"Mkpi Lt0"48vj"Cppwcn"DtgcmhcuvYgneqog"Tgegrvkqp"hqt"vjg" Pgy"EGQ"qh"LVC Tqzkg"Ueqvv/ Mqvd."85 Fctt{n"F0"Ueqvv."62He is her adopted son, yet he killed this Gainesville lady by striking her head several times. Afterwards, he took her 2007 Mercury and traded it for crack cocaine said Gainesville police. Ms. Scott-Kotb had not been seen since January 5, 2013 and some of her relatives found her body on January 13 in her Bivens Cove apartment, according to the Gainesville Police Department. It appeared she had been dead for several days, police said. Neighbors, friends and family said Scott-Kotb was a strong and caring woman who lived by a motto: Help others before you help yourself, and treat other people how you want to be treated. They said Scott-Kotb especially applied this to her adopted son, Darryl Dwayne Scott, 40, who family said was living with her after a 12-year stint in prison for attempted murder. "My kindness is going to kill me," Scott-Kotb once told a neighbor Scott was arrested on a charge of murder and grand theft. Police spotted him Sunday in Orange County driving a car a 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo they say he stole from Gator City Motors, where he worked detailing vehicles. The officer in Central Florida ran a check on Scott and discovered he was wanted in Gainesville for murder, GPD officer Ben Tobias said. Police found Ms. Scott-Kotbs car on January 14. The last time anyone recalled seeing Scott-Kotb alive was on January 5 when a neighbor saw her and the car. An autopsy showed Scott-Kotb died from blunt-force trauma to the head, Her car and her purse were missing when she was found.Nghv"vq"tkijv<"Okejcgn"Dnc{nqem"*tgvktgf"htqo"LVC+="Ft0"Lqjpp{"Ichhpg{ /"Lcemuqpxknng"Ekv{"Eqwpekn"cpf"LVC"Nkckuqp="Hn0"Uvcvg"Tgr0"Okc Lqpgu="Tgikpcnf"Ichhpg{"/"Lczrqtv"Dqctf"Ogodgt1Gzgewvkxg"Fktgevqt qh"ETE="Pcvjcpkgn"Hqtf."EGQ"LVC="Cxc"Rctmgt."LVC"Dqctf"Ogodgt= E{pvjkc"Cwuvkp."LGC"Dqctf"Ogodgt="Mkodgtn{"Fcpkgnu."Lcemuqpxknng Ekv{"Eqwpekn="Oc{qt"Cnxkp"Dtqyp="Hqtogt"Uvcvg"Ugpcvqt"Vqp{"Jknn Nghv"vq"Tkijv<""Ft0"Lqjpp{"Ichhpg{."Lcemuqpxknng"Ekv{"Eqwpeknocp= Rcwnc"Ytkijv."Fwxcn"Eqwpv{"Uejqqn"Dqctf."Mkodgtn{"Fcpkgnu.

PAGE 4 THE STAR JANUARY 26, 2013 Celebrating the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. on the Eve of the Inauguration of President Barack Obama to a Second Term Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome. Extraordinary, adj: going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary. In the past week I heard the word extraordinary used on several occasions. It was used by President Obama during his Inauguration speech and Mayor Alvin Brown and Ambassador Andrew Young at the 26thAnnual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast on Friday, January 18, 2013. It was extraordinary! The keynote speaker was Ambassador Andrew Young, himself an icon of the Civil Rights era. He marched along side Dr. King, was imprisoned for civil rights demonstrations with Dr. King, and was beaten, along with Dr. King, by vicious opponents of the change Dr. King stood for in those days. In his speech, Young, a former U.S. Congressman, Mayor of Atlanta, U.N. Ambassador, and close advisor and friend of Dr. King, recounted the days of the Civil Rights Movement. And, while his message was food for fodder for all at the event, it was especially aimed at the young people selected as Tomorrows Leaders, who were also honored at the Breakfast. Referring to an upcoming education summit convening in Jacksonville by Mayor Alvin Brown, February 28-March 1, he praised the Mayor and the community for focusing on equal access education to build jobs for the next generation. Education gives you options, said Mayor Brown in a press conference after the main event. I will work until I leave this earth to improve the quality of public education in [Jacksonville]. He vowed to employ an education theme every year at the MLK Breakfast as long as he is mayor. He called Dr. King an ordinary man with an extraordinary vision for the U.S. He was well prepared and had a good education, said Brown. Ambassador Young told the audience of nearly 2,500 that Dr. King recognized the inherent dangers of being the face of the Civil Rights movement. According to Young, Dr. King believed, If four hundred Secret Service could not keep President Kennedy alive, then ones fate is in the hands of destiny. He urged citizens to keep guns out of the daily struggles that we face, and act in a spirit of forgiveness. He referred to the example set by Dr. Kings assassination, likening the bullet which felled him as an instrument releasing the spirit of Dr. King around the world as the Berlin Wall came down, the lone Chinese student stood down a column of tanks in Tianamen Square, and the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) dissolved. Young spoke about the progress of St. Augustine in the 50 years since he was jailed during a demonstration in the nations oldest city and Jacksonville civil rights attorney, the late Earl M. Johnson, Sr., arranged the release of the arrested demonstrators and advised King, (Rev. Ralph) Abernathy, and Young. At the press conference, I asked Ambassador Young to comment on what he thought Dr. Kings position might be today about the new gun laws. Dr. King did not believe guns provided security or safety. He would have focused on education, the lost and the lonely. Referring to Dr. Kings last book, Chaos or Community Young said, Were on the verge of chaos. But, the answer is not guns. The answer is community. Bring community together, guns go back in the drawer. Dr. Nikolai Vitti, Superintendent of Duval County Public Schools, also attended the breakfast and press conference. He praised the Mayors focus on education and for recognizing that their jobs in that regard are intertwined. He emphasized strengthening education and civic involvement as key to transforming any city. He plans to continue engaging the community and schools by going into the community instead of waiting for the community to reach out to him. Winners and runners-up of the State Farm sponsored Tomorrows Leaders were recognized during the program. First place winners recited their winning essay and received an award at the breakfast. The Tomorrows Leaders program recognizes elementary, middle and high school students who exemplify the ideals and principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and excel in community volunteerism, leadership and civic responsibility. The 2013 first place winners are: Tianna Terry, 5thGrade, Amber Kristin Brown, 6thGrade, and Duane Moore, Jr., 12thGrade, elementary, middle school, and high school divisions, respectively. The runners-up are SheilaHodges, JaQuon Baker, and Haley Geeser elementary, middle school, and high school divisions, respectively. The story of high school winner, Duane Moore, Jr. drew a collective emotional response from the audience as he told of estrangement from his family, which forced him into homelessness. Through Daniel, the non-profit agency that provides support to children suffering from abuse, neglect, or abandonment, the high school senior now lives in a rented apartment provided by the agency, is employed, and attends Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, where he is a vocal and visual arts student. He plans to attend college to concentrate on 3-D animation or voice. As I listened to Duane, I remembered a young man who presented at the MLK Breakfast many years ago, whose community and school involvement was so inspiring that Dr. Adam Herbert, then President of UNF, approached the podium and offered the young man a full scholarship to the University upon graduation from high school. That young man was Rahman Johnson, the current Chair of the Ritz Theatre and Museum Foundation. I hope that Duane Moores story will spur someone of influence or means to give this extraordinary young man a similar boost on his path to a successful future. "I have a dream this morning..."

LOCAL PAGE 6 JANUARY 26, 2013 Florida Florida Star Readers Best 2013 Inaugural Moments By Marsha Dean Phelts and Michael R. Phelts The 57thPresidential Inauguration on January 21, 2013, was a historic day in several ways and witnessed by millions all over the world. What a day of memorable moments for us when Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated, shortly before noon for his second term as the 44thPresident of the United States of America. Until memory fades, this glorious day will remain swaddled in the hearts of so very many. An estimated 1 million people from the United States and nearly everywhere else ascended around the Capitol Building in Washington, DC to be there. On the streets, the people proudly proclaimed the President and his Inauguration as Back-2-Back. To participate in Back-2-Back 2008/2012 events of such magnitude, thousands of The Florida Star Readers showed up to be with POTUS*, FLOTUS** and the First Family. Car loads of Florida and Georgia families and friends plied their way along the 800-1000 mile long journey to the National Mall. There were as well, numerous bus trips to the nations capital sponsored by local organizations including the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Congresswoman Corrine Browns constituents in Congressional District 5 have become accustomed to the Friends of Corrine Brown excursions to the Nations Capital. For Inauguration 2013 Friends of Corrine Brown sponsored Luxury Coaches and Amtrak Train services to Capitol Hill where they were hospitably received. Congresswoman Brown provided her guests with tickets to either watch the activities from National Mall or from the comfort of the cherry veneer, granite and marbled chambers of the Rayburn Office Building. The call was the individuals to make. Electoral College Delegate, Leon Belton, and his wife, Joan, of Panama City who traveled with our group, were privileged to be seated up front with other distinguished guests of the President on the lawn of the United States Capitol. January 21, 2013 was an official Red Letter Day for two reasons. First, it was the 27thcelebration and observation of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday/Holiday. The second reason was that this was the day of the 57thPresidential Inauguration. The Florida Star asked its readers to share their thoughts and memories of their Best 2013 Inaugural Moments. This is what they had to say Former Florida State Senator Tony Hill For me standing on the National Mall and looking all around at the diversity in the crowd was a touching moment. Watching the First Family riding up Pennsylvania Avenue was an awesome sight. As I stated four years ago, 2008 was Historical!!! 2012 is personal!!! What a Grand Celebration last weekend in DC. The time is now and only together can we move forward, with that said, four more years. Executive Director and Board Member Middle Passage Markers Project, Ann Chinn and Dr. Charles Cobb, Jr. This was the first presidential inaugural address that addressed citizenship in such an all-inclusive manner. Personally we feel that one of the strengths of a US President of African heritage is that the inclusion of all people in the concept of this nation is not perfunctory but sincerely heartfelt. This perspective can be simply believed and conveyed in a way that no previous national political leader could. Thats one of Obamas strengths. Rebecca Highsmiths Family, Children and Siblings Martha Allen, Susan Lavett Tillman, Denise Jackson Venus Highsmith and Rebecca Highsmith all say: Our Best Moments in the 2013 Inauguration were: Being in the Representatives offices watching our President taking the Presidential oath a second time. To watch both President and Mrs. Obama ride passed us in their car with such a charming smile. We were thrilled to have witnessed such a prestigious function. None of us ever dreamed that we would have seen nor would have had to opportunity to be in Washington, D. C. for this occasion. This was an experience of a life time full of excitement, enjoyable time mingling with family, friends, and others from all parts of the country. Congresswoman Corrine Brown showed her beauty, poise, and went out of her way to make sure we the people of her district enjoyed themselves. Many thanks go out to Congresswoman Brown for showing up and showing out! Elder Leroy and Brenda Hutchins; Coach Ben Simmons, II and Benjie Simmons, III Our best inaugural moment was when we were part of the crowd that received the first presidential wave at the parade. We were positioned at the foot of the Capitols north side in an uncharacteristically small crowd of people and news reporters. We waited patiently for the motorcade to leave the White house. We witnessed the pageantry of the bands representing each of the armed forces as they marched in strict formation down the hill and made precise steps in maneuvering a left turn. There was even a fife and drum corps dressed in their 1776 uniforms. Then the moment came as the presidents car slowly followed the path. Just as the vehicle made the left turn and before the secret service vehicles overshadowed the car, the driver stopped. Then we saw the hand and a faint glimpse of a smile from none other than President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. The crowd went wild.....and we did too! Linda J. Cooper, PRIDE Book Club This was my first inauguration. I loved being in the midst of people of all nationalities and other countries coming together as a living witness to the second swearing in of our 44th president. During the course of the day I walked among many people and stood in line at several security check points with no angry words or exchanges you would expect with that many people involved. With all of the political dysfunction, the Inauguration Day gave me true hope of what it feels like to be part of a collective group and I will never forget that day! Jackie D. Hart, Educator Gainesville My best moment of the 2013 Inauguration was to experience the electricity of hundreds of people at the MLK Memorial celebrating Kings birthday; and at the same time, celebrate with thousandsour 44th President at the 57th Inauguration of America. This was an awesome moment for me, to celebrate two of the greatest African American men of my time. Kayaunna Dean, 1stGrader at Sommerset Academy My best Inauguration moment was when my dad and I were walking down the street and then I saw the White House right in front of me up the hill. The White House is the biggest house Ive ever seen. (Little Kayaunnas dad couldnt get her to understand that she was looking at the Capitol Building and not the White House). Kyle Dean Deans Environmental Lawn Service and Pest Control My best moment of the Inauguration was being a part of the whole process. I had a smile on my face that lasted from the moment we left Jacksonville until long after our return. I even smiled in my sleep. Going to the 1st, and 2nd, Inauguration of the 1st African American President of the United States of America was a great historical moment for me. Both times I was able to personally experience the good feelings and excitement of Americans and from people from all over the world. Roslyn Auntie Roz Burrough Performer I was a guest at a flawless commemoration celebration of the Inauguration in the home of Delores Gardner James and Family. There were about 50 baby boomers and elders in attendance. I will always treasure looking and listening to our Brilliant, Fine Brother President take the oath, (I stood, raised my right hand and took the oath with him.) sharing experiencing the prayers and grunts and tears of pride and joy in that room was awesome. I could see the history and feel the promise. There are many best moments; President Obama s perfect all inclusive unifying speech!... So-o-o-o many best moments. I am grateful to be well and in my right mind so that I can add this experience to my blessed memories as I move forward with the purpose GOD has for my life!! Marsha Dean Phelts, Author of The American Beach Cookbook Eating delicious macaroni and cheese, collard greens and cornbread, stew beef and rice, baked chicken, etc, in the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Meeting Room of the Rayburn House Office Building while watching President Obamas Commander In Chief commanding walk out of the United States Capitol Building on to the platform to take his second oath of office as President of the United States, with his right hand on the Bible that Martin Luther King, Jr. prayed from on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This was my moment, my best moment. This was a day of special moments for me for just 69 years ago on this very date, January 21, 1944, I was born to Charles and Eva Cobb Rosier at Brewster Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. As fate would destine it Barack Hussein Obama will forever be the 44thPresident of the United States of America. Until memory fades, this glorious day will remain swaddled in my heart. *POTUS President of the United States **FLOTUS First Lady of the United States Sylvia Briley with the Congresswoman, Little Miss Kayaunna and her dad, Kyle Dean

FOURMOREYEARS:Brunswick Heads To Inauguration 2013 PAGE THESTAR JANUARY, 2013LEFT: 50 years ago, her husband Medgar Evers murder marked one of the ugliest parts of the Civil Rights Movement. On Martin Luther King Day 2013, Myrlie EversWilliams became the first female and first African-American to lead the Presidential Inaguration invocation. With President Barack Obama being the first of leader of color for the US and using bibles once owned by President Abraham Lincoln who freed slaves 150 years ago and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr for his oath, it marked a bittersweet occassion to show their efforts were not in vain.

Falcons Fall To 49ers In Front Of Atlanta Crowd, 28-24JANUARY 26, 2013 THESTAR PAGE Head coach Mike Smith announced during his Monday news conference after Sundays 28-24 loss in the NFC Championship game that quarterback Matt Ryan was injured near the end of the game. Smith said the injury was a sprained left shoulder. If we had the outcome that we wanted last night, he would have participated in the game in New Orleans, Smith said Monday. Smith added that Ryan would not be playing in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii this weekend. Smith also said that Ryan would not require surgery. He will be rehabbing here over the next couple of weeks and then hell get on to his offseason, Smith said, who added that the training staff feels its a three-tofour-week recovery period, meaning Ryan will be ready to go when the Falcons start offseason training April 24. Ryan possibly becomes the second of three Falcons to say theyll miss this weekends Pro Bowl. Tight end Tony Gonzalez said after Sundays game that he likely wont play in theFormer Jacksonville Giant, Christian Laettner To Receive 2012 Championship RingDuke University standout, NBA veteran, and Olympic Dream Team gold medalist, Christian Laettner, was presented with a National Championship Ring from the 2012 National Champions Jacksonville Giants owner Ron Sholes on Friday night. Laettner played five games for the Giants during its 2011-2012 Championship run before being selected mid-season as Assistant Coach of the NBA Development League team, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Laettner will be best remembered by the Giants for his assist in the first game of the Giants 2011-2012 season where the Giants faced the tough Gulf Coast Flash, said Sholes. With three seconds left and the GIANTS behind by two points, Laettner inbounded the ball with ease to Mike Polite who dropped it off to Currye Todd who drained a 30-foot jump shot. The crowd went wild! Head Coach Kevin Waters said of Laettner, He not only played, he coached, too. The team enjoyed learning from one of the all-time champions of the sport of basketball. His efforts in that first game accomplished our win and gave the team well-needed confidence to win. At the end of the 2012 season, Laettner was selected as a television color commentator for the 2012 Summer Olympics held in London, England. And this past December, the 1992 Olympic Dream Team was recognized with a float in 2012 Macys Day Parade, with Laettner waving proudly from the float. When asked about the experience, he modestly stated, Being on that float was one of the highlights of my life. It is hard to put into words the feeling you get being cheered on by millions of spectators and knowing that nearly 100 million people are watching on television. Today, Christian, 44, runs his own youth basketball training camp (Christian Laettner Basketball Academy) and works with professional athletes wishing to improve their basketball skills and technique. game, either. Gonzalezs reasoning does not have to do with injury. Meanwhile, the Falcons continue to press on. They announced that they have signed wide receiver Marcus Jackson, guard Jacques McClendon, defensive tackle Micanor Regis, wide receiver James Rodgers, linebacker Pat Schiller, tight end Andrew Szczerba, cornerback Peyton Thompson and running back Josh Vaughan to reserve/future contracts. Atlanta singing star Usher Raymond shows support for his home team, the Falcons.
