89,000 Voters Purged in

Watch Out for Voters
On Thursday, September 4, 2008 the Duval County
Supervisor of Elections Office received a number of
calls from voters inquiring about a mailing entitled
"Voter Registration Tracking Form" along with a
"Party Affiliation Voter Registration Card" sent by the
Republican National Committee.
Jerry Holland, Supervisor of Elections advised voters
who received this mailing that it is not a product dis-
tributed by his office. He said "I want to assure voters
the mailing is not a reflection of any changes that have
been made to any voter records. We cannot change a
voter's party affiliation without a voter completing a
voter registration application that includes the voter's
signature and submitting it to our office." He suggest-
ed visiting the website or calling his office at (904)
Correction from the week of September 6, 2008
On the story: Man Had 45 Bullets in Body
Montellis Clark of Atlanta, Georgia, who was in a
shootout in July with Atlanta Police, had-39 bullets in
his body, not 45.
Congressman John Conyers, front with Congresswoman
Corrine Brown, and other officials, including State Senator
Tony Hill, and ministers, met in Jacksonville to discuss vot-
ing in Florida.
Can you imagine? 89,000 former voters have been
purged from the list in Duval County because of their
failure to follow through and vote. This is serious.
Citizens have until October 4, 2008 to cure this situa-
tion. We have just 55 days left as many false stories
are being told on Democratic candidate Barack Obama.
Even though the Wall Street Journals' story points out
the many untruths. The Republicans continue. Palain
will not join McCain next week or when he comes to
Jacksonville on Monday, September 15 because of her
son who is headed to Iraq.
In a visit to Jacksonville on behalf of the campaign to
elect Barak Obama president, Congressman John
Conyers was introduced to a group of ministers by
Congresswoman Corrine Brown with the message,
"We Gotta Win Big" a tie we lose, a close race we lose.
To keep the election from being taken we've got to win
big. Congresswoman Brown urged the ministers pres-
ent to talk with their congregations to be sure everyone
is on the rolls. She suggested those who have not voted
in the last couple of elections or have moved, to re-reg-
ister to be sure your vote will be counted November
4, 2008. Let's have NO surprises on November 4.
Congressman Conyers begin by assuring the involve-
ment of the community, asking for feedback and input
for the next 61 days. 89,000 -Continued on

Jacksonville, and all of North Florida is being watched by the state. The importance
of Florida to the Presidential Election was stressed. According to Mr. Conyers and
political analysts the way Duval County goes is the way Florida goes and the way
Florida goes is the way the country will go.
Mr. Conyers is pushing to develop KIDS FOR OBAMA," youth inspiring youth
to encourage adults. To Win this election, Mr. Conyers stated that Mr. Obama would
like to win Michigan, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.
Congressman Conyers encourages everyone to vote early, talk about voting, commit
to watching the poll activity on election day, remembering this is a campaign from
the bottom up and "WE'VE GOTTA WIN BIG." We can not leave a chance for this
election to be stolen. John Conyers is the Representative from Detroit, Michigan,
elected 1965. Mr. Obama was not on the Michigan ballot for the Michigan primary
and did not actually campaign in that state.
Florida is a red state, and it appears from observation that this is so because of the
news received through basic cable through the cable companies, which only airs Fox
News and caters to the so-called conservatives and Republicans.

Operation Gratitude Begins Preparations for
2008 Holiday Drive
SUMMER SUMMER FALL!-With the passing of Labor Day, Fall is here! We hope that every-
one had a great Summer. Here at Operation Gratitude we were busily finishing up the Patriotic
Drive and sending thousands more packages that had been assembled in May. We also have been
preparing the armory, organizing products, accepting deliveries, designing the new Operation
Gratitude Magazine for this year's packages and reaching out to new donors and volunteers. Across
the country, scarves are being knit and crocheted, letters written and fundraising activities planned.
We hope you will participate in this Prep Stage: Please visit the How You Can Help page of
our website for lots of ideas and also think CANDY, CANDY, and more CANDY! Halloween
Candy to be specific. Not only do we welcome all of yours, but we coordinate with dentists
throughout the country who "buy-back" Halloween candy from their patients, and send it to
Operation Gratitude to include in our packages. Encourage your dentist to contact us to learn how
they can develop a Buy-Back program to Support Our Troops!
The 6th Annual Holiday Drive...... is around the corner! Oct. 18, 2008, is the first day of pack-
ing. We will start shipping much earlier this year in order to reach more service members than ever
before. We plan to send 70,000 care packages! That means we need a lot of product and letters to
fill the packages and a lot of money to pay the postage. We hope you will start your fundraisers,
collection drives and letter writing campaigns as soon as possible.
Postal rates went up to $9.30/package, but we are trying to keep.our overall cost to $10/pack-
age. That still means we need $700,000 to successfully .complete this drive. To assist in our
fundraising we are switching to a new, friendlier online donation system which will also make it
easier to send messages to the troops, make tribute donations in someone's honor or memory, and
set up recurring donations on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis. Please check out and use our new
Donation Page and then share it-yith everyone you know! Look for this new icon throughout the
Operation Gratitude website; click it and experience the new way to make a donation and send a
message to our Troops!

SEPTEMBER 13. 28HSRA B
September 13, 2008 September 19, 2008
From Actual Police Reports
Did You Hear About?,..
March 21st thru April 19th
A big workout or a major house-cleaning is in
order on Monday. You'll not only feel better
about yourself and your surroundings, but
you'll be able to clear your head, too. Then,
something's urgent around Tuesday and
Wednesday; could it be in the love depart-
ment? Making the first move wouldn't hurt.
While you've certainly got your own concerns
from" Thursday through the weekend, making
the world brighter for those around you (your
boss, a relative, a friend, even a random
stranger) reflects a very lovely cosmic light
back on you.
April 20th thru May 20th
Take someone out to lunch on Monday or have
them over and make it for them. Keep it agenda-
free and just talk; building bonds goes great now.
You know you're right around Tuesday and
Wednesday, but getting adamant about it isn't nec-
essarily the way to sway people. Listen to their side
(no, really!), and be ready to understand that there
might be something to it. Common ground can be
found. The rest of the week's ripe for shaking
things up, especially in your love life. Surprise
someone, and surprise yourself, too.
May 21st thru June 21st
You're not as social a creature as you usually
are on Monday, and nesting at home might
sound better than anything. Heed that natural
instinct. You're ready to make things happen
again around Tuesday and Wednesday, when
the process of going from a concept to reality
is smoothed by the stars. Getting people to
agree with you is favored now, too, so make
plans while you can. From Thursday through
most of Saturday, those connections aren't as
easy; you might even have to explain yourself
a lot. The last of the weekend looks to be full
of good feelings and the chance of romance!
June 22nd thru July 22nd
f you have time off on Monday, make the most
of it; if you don't, consider taking some. Your.
energy's so good ... why waste it on work?
Around Tuesday and Wednesday, you might
leave that shell of yours so far behind that it's
a little outrageous. Kudos to you for putting
yourself out there, but do also give a tiny bit of
thought to what this might mean down the
. road. Those who think you're hopelessly at the
mercy of your emotions might be surprised by
your objective standpoint and analytical abili-
ties during the rest of the week. It's a great
time for a reality check.
July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Take it easy on Monday, and give yourself
time to think. Finding the source of your emo-
tions is important now, whether they're nega-
tive or positive. Then, around Tuesday and
Wednesday, your inhibitions might just go out
the window, and it just might be a marvelous
thing. Why not do what.you feel, say what you
mean and make the most of life? You're hot
now! This ought to be out of your system by
Thursday, and the rest of the week looks low-
key. You're working things through, profes-
sionally or personally, or even both. Good for
Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
Getting organized for the week to come is
a fine idea on Monday, but getting togeth-
er with someone you care about. would be
even better. At least give a call and have
a chat. Then, if you feel like you're at a
disadvantage around Tuesday and
Wednesday, don't freeze'up or get out-
raged. How can you reshape your role in
a positive way? Sort it out -- and get on
it. Anything's possible .with the great
energy you've got from Thursday through
most of Saturday. Snap things into place
with ease. If you can't decide on Sunday,
don't push yourself.
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd
Whatever big ambitions you have for Monday
are likely to be foiled. Your mission: Make the
best of it. Around Tuesday and Wednesday,
taking action is much more favored, and others
look to you to take the lead, whether in your
professional or personal life. For best results,
add an unusual element. Give it flair!
Socializing's favored from Thursday through
the remainder of the week, as is sorting out an
interpersonal issue. With your charm, diplo-
macy and ability to unearth the best in people,
you may end up great friends with somebody
you never thought of as a buddy.
S Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
Combining the emotional with the intellectual
on Monday -- letting yourself go after thinking
it through -- allows you to see a new angle.
Around Tuesday and Wednesday, it's tempting
to let your reaction spill out, but a certain situ-
ation demands restraint. Life could be stressful
now, so plan to handle it calmly instead of let-
ting it get to you. Then, if you don't have your.
agenda out in the open during the rest of the
week, why would you expect that anyone else
would? Consider leveling with someone
important in your life. The results might sur-
Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
Let your mood dictate your day on Monday as
much as possible. You're happiest and you get
the most done when you have a flexible agen-
da. It looks like a distinct advantage may be
coming your way around Tuesday and
Wednesday -- a lucky break, a bonus or an
upgrade. Knowing you, you'll be generous,
too, keeping the good vibes going. But beware:
If*you can't be bothered with the details from
Thursday through most of Saturday, the details
will likely. become a bother to you. Time with
friends, new or old, is favored on Sunday. How
Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
Wherever you are, you might wish you were
someplace else on Monday. It's just one of
those days; breathe deeply and hold on. News
is traveling about your, ability to get things
done, and around Tuesday and Wednesday,
there's a chance of getting overloaded. Know
when to say no -- or to ask the requestor to
take on.something in return. Over the next few
days, though, you're pretty much unstoppable,
and it's an excellent time to turn that sharp
mind (and that solid-gold heart) toward the
future. What is it you want to do next?
Sunday's.ideal for taking the first step.
I II~C~~E I~
Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
Stick to the plan on Monday. Your emotions
may seem very compelling, but it's unlikely
you'll still feel this way in the long term. In
fact, as soon as Tuesday and Wednesday hit,
you'll be able to separate out your reaction
from reality, and from there it's easy to make a
discovery and even improve a relationship.
And if you're interested in relating to people
(or maybe a certain someone) on a deeper
level, the rest of the week offers, opportunities
galore Skip the chitchat and get down to the
real deal by asking serious questions and shar-
ing powerful emotions.
Feb 19th ihru March 20th
Monday's a fun day, so make the most of your
time off. Making an overture of the romantic
variety is favored now, too -- lucky you! Keep
your nose out of other people's business
around Tuesday and Wednesday, or at least
keep your opinion of it to yourself. Further
developments will have you glad you didn't
chime in. It's your own affairs -- maybe with a
friend or partner -- that are first and foremost
during the remainder of the week. You're usu-
ally so charitable, but right now you're more
critical, which can be very useful in making

UNLAWFUL USE OF ID -The officer observed two
women engaging in a dispute in the 2000 block of
Yulee Street: He separated the women and questioned
why they were having this dispute. One of the women
presented a driver's license that did not match her
face. When questioned about the difference in look,
the suspect stated that she was the person on the
license. The officer ran a check and found that the sus-
pect matched another female that had three outstand- -
ing warrants. The face of the person with the warrants
also matched the suspect that was talking with the'offi-
cer. The suspect was then fingerprinted and it was dis-
covered that her fingerprints matched the fingerprints
of the person with the outstanding warrartts also. ID & records confirmed, that the
suspect was in fact the person with the warrant, not the person she claimed to be.
Had the suspect successfully used the victim's ID, the victim would have been list-
ed erroneously as the second suspect in the dispute originally observed which would
have resulted in an adverse affect of the real owner. The suspect was read her rights
PIZZA BANDITS- The Domino Pizza delivery male stated that he went to an
apartment to make a delivery. When he arrived, two males met him outside the
apartment. One took the pizza and the other pretended he was looking for money.
The suspect who was pretending to look for the money told the delivery man he
locked himself out of his apartment and would have to go around back to get the
money. The two men walked away with the pizza and after'a few minutes, the deliv-
eryman knocked on the door and looked in the windows and noticed the apartment
was vacant and the men had left the area. In a search of the area, the men were not
VIOLATION, OF INJUNCTION AND REPEATED VIOLENCE An officer
was dispatched to the 6000 block of Kinnon
Drive regarding the suspect violating an injunc-
tion for protection. When the officer arrived, the
suspect was in the front yard. When asked who
called the police, he stated, "Yeah I called, I
need to go to jail. I'm violating an injunction."
The victim approached the officer with her three
children and advised him that she and the sus-
SCi pect were married but separated, pending a
divorce. She confirmed the injunction and stat-
ed that when she-arrived home, she observed the
suspect's truck and saw through the rear window
that her house was in disarray. The suspect said,
"I'm an idiot. I did something stupid. I just vandalized my own house." The officer
went into the house and discovered extreme damage to the interior of the house and
the front burglar bar. The suspect had smashed the large fish tank and water was run-
ning all over the floor, leaving the fish exposed; he had smashed the microwave, the
big screen TV, bed, headboard, master bedroom and had left the water running in an
attempt to flood the house. The damage made the house uninhabitable. The officer
turned off the water to prevent further damage, had the victim to fill out paper work
and arrested the suspect.
MAN FOUND DEAD IN BATHTUB -
An officer was dispatched to an, apart-
mnent in the 5000 block of Cleveland
Road in reference to a death. When the
officer arrived he was told that the victim '
was found dead in the bathtub. The com-
plainant advised that she had last seen the
victim about 10:30 p.m. the night before /
when she went to bed. She advised that .
the victim was on several medications for M H...
treatment of H.I.V., a condition he had -R _
had for about ten years. She further
advised that the victim had not had new
prescriptions since July 2005 and the doctor advised that he had several "no shows"
for his appointments. The victim's date of birth was 8/19/58 and his death was list-
ed as undetermined. The victim was removed from the residence by the medical
BATTERY IN PROGRESS -Two officers were dispatched to the 5100 block of
Hwy Ave. in reference to a battery in progress where he observed both individuals
involved in a dispute in front of the residence. The officers attempted to detain the
suspect/victim Mr. BG, so that they could get the details of this incident, sus-
pect/victim Mrs. GG punched suspect/victim in the face with a closed fist. She then
slapped him two more times in the face with an open hand. Mr. BG attempted to free
himself of the officer. The officer told the suspect/victim several times to stop his
physical resistance, however, he refused and suspect/victim Mr. BG had to be
forcibly taken to the ground and restrained. He was placed in the rear of the patrol
j [ car. He then stated that he wanted to speak with
an attorney. Witness Ms. B .stated that she knows
both individuals and said that she and Mrs. GG
had just came back from clubbing and that's
when the altercation started and turned physical.
Ms. BG stated that she called the police. Both
f individuals have been married for thirteen years
f and stated that neither one wanted to write a writ-
ten statement. Suspect/victim Mrs. GG had a
minor abrasion on her arm as a result of the strug-
gle and the suspect/vict Mr. BG had a red swollen
abrasion on his forehead as a result of the strug-
gle. Both Suspects/victims were transported to
the PTDF for processing.

Jaguars Fall to Titans 17-10
v: 9: Prepare to Host Buffalo Sunday.
By Michael Bonts
Rookie running back Chris Johnson ran for a total of 127 total.yards as AFC
South Division rival Tennessee (1-0) used a stellar defensive effort to shut down
the Jaguars (0-1). 17-10 in the season-opener.
The Jaguars host Buffalo Sunday at 1 p.m. at Jacksonville Municipal
Jaguars QB David Garrard was hurried all day. He was 23 of 35 for 215 yards
including two interceptions and a TD. On third-and-goal, Garrard connected with
Greg Jones on a play-action pass into the right flat for the game's first TD.
Jacksonville's running tandem of Maurice Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor were
held to 31 combined yards on the ground, with Taylor having 18.
"The Titans have never had that type of explosiveness before," Taylor said
about his opponent Johnson's breakaway speed. "That opens up the game a little
bit [for them.]"
Matt Jones led Jacksonville with six catches for 80 yards.
."The difference was they were able to control our run better than we were
able to control theirs." Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio said.
The win was costly for the Titans as quarterback Vince Young went down
with a sprained left knee late in the fourth quarter. Young finished with I 10pass-
ing yards with a touchdown and two picks on 12-of-22 passes'.
Bo Scaife had a game-high 105 receiving yards on six receptions for
Tennessee. The Titans defense,recorded with six sacks, three turnovers and 33
yards against on the ground. Johnson had 93 yards on the ground including a
receiving TD pass.
"A lot of people-picked us to lose this game," Titans safety Michael Griffin
said. "A lot of people picked wrong."
Jacksonville guard Vince Manuwai will miss the remainder of the 2008 sea-
son after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the 17-10
Jags coach Jack Del Rio confirmed the injury at a Monday afternoon press
Manuwai is just the latest casualty of the Jacksonville offensive line. Center
Brad Meester is out with a biceps injury, guard Mo Williams suffered a shoulder
injury and may or may not be placed on injured reserve, and tackle Richard
Collier was shot last week and is in critical condition.
THIS WEEKS OPPONENT: Buffalo QB Trent Edwards went 19-for-30 pass-
ing for 215 yards and a touchdown, and Marshawn Lynch rushed for 76 yards and
a score, as the Bills (1-0) rolled to a 34-10 win over Seattle. Roscoe Parrish had
a punt return for a touchdown, and defensive end Ryan Denney caught a touch-
down throw on a fake field goal-for Buffalo. The Bills are coming off a 7-9 fin-
ish last season and haven't made the playoffs since 1999.

WINN-DIXIE'S A-TEAM SURPRISES "A" SCHOOL
WITH ANNOUNCEMENT OF WINNERS
Winn-Dixie Donates Nearly 7,000 Tickets to Jaguars Home Games to Thank Teachers
and Reward Students for Improvements in Academics, Attitude and Attendance
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Sept. 9, 2008) -A "pep rally" is what 800 James Weldon Johnson Middle School stu-
dents thought they were attending this morning. But when they were handed black-and-teal pompoms as they entered
the gymnasium, they realized the event was not exactly what they expected. Instead, eight students became the first
members of the Winn-Dixie A-Team for this school year.
The academic magnet school was chosen as the A-Team's kick-off location because of its outstanding record.
James Weldon Johnson Middle School has been received an "A" grade for the past eight years in a rpow. For their hard
work in academics, good attendance and overall attitude, the eight students chosen by Principal Sharwonda Peek were
awarded tickets to Sunday's Jacksonville Jaguars home opener against the Buffalo Bills.
For eight of the Jaguars' home games this season, Winn-Dixie will award family four-packs of tickets to select-
ed middle school students and two-packs of tickets to teachers in Duval, Baker, Clay, Nassau, 'Flagler, St. Johns and
Putnam counties. It is the third straight year the Jaguars and Winn-Dixie have teamed up to encourage and reward
students and teachers for success in the classroom.
"This is a great way to reward students and teachers in our community for their hard work throughout the school
year," said Phil Woodruff, Winn-Dixie's promotions manager. "Winn-Dixie is committed to helping students reach
their full potential with the A-Team and we look forward to another successful year."
The event kicked off with Edward Waters College's drum line playing as the students filed into the gymnasium,
perplexed as they each received a colorful pompom. The confusion quickly turned into excitement as the surprise
guests were introduced: members of The ROAR, Jaxson de Ville, and Jaguars players Mike Peterson and Cleo
The A-Team winners were presented with an oversized Jaguars ticket and congratulated by the Jaguars players
and Winn-Dixie representatives as they exited the stage. The enthusiasm continued when Jaguars players and Jaxson
de Ville tossed out prizes to the students.
"Our long-standing partnership with Winn-Dixie has given many First Coast residents the chance to attend
Jaguars games each season for the past several years," said Wayne Weaver, chairman and CEO for the Jacksonville
Jaguars. "We are thrilled to be a part of Winn-Dixie's A-Team, and look forward to seeing the students and teachers
in the stands."
