BAPTIST HEALTH REGARDING H1N1
Precaution and Visitor Policy -In light of the ongoing
prevalence of H1N1 in Northeast Florida, Baptist
Health is further limiting its visitation policy at all five
hospitals, including Wolfson Children's Hospital.
Effective immediately, visitation of hospital patients iS
limited to immediate family members, who may include
spouses/significant others, adult siblings, parents,
grandparents, and children over age 5. In addition'
Baptist Health encourages family members to take turns
visiting their loved ones. Large groups of family mem-
bers are discouraged at this time. A general guideline is
no more than two visitors at a time in each private
patient room. The previously stated policy restricting
visitors who are experiencing any flu-like symptoms
(including coughing, sneezing, fever, or stomach upset)
is still in place. If you are visiting a patient in a Baptist
Health facility, you will be asked to wear a mask to help
prevent the spread of the flu and will see healthcare
staff also wearing masks and other protective gear for
Litnsare due the Tuesday before the next issue. Emailsb-
missions preferred. Send to: info~thefloridastar.com

The Wildcats of Fort. Valley State Universit
(FVSU) used the 2nd Annual Stan Lomax Gold Cat
Football Classic as a forum to tame the Tigers of
Edward Waters College, 32-13.
Named in honor of the National Collegiate Athletic
Association hall of fame football coach, lat
Saturday's Lomax Class~ic was played at Glynn Coulnty
Stadium in Brunswick and while the score indicates
otherwise, the game was not as one-sided as it might
In fact, it was the Tigers of Edward Waters who
took the early lead. After a 5 play, 46-yard drive, the
Tigers scored first when freshman quarterback
Brandon Turman tossed a 6 yard touchdown pass to
wide receiver Joshua Williams. Bertram Balfour's con-
version of the extra point gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead
with 10:33 remaining in the first quarter.
However, on the ensuing drive, the Wildcats
answered right back. FVSU quarterback Nathaniel
Samas capped a 7 play, 74-yard drive with a one yard
touchdown plunge with 7:16 left in the initial quarter.
Justin Rosenbaum connected on the point after attempt
to bring the game back to even at 7-7.
Later in the first quarter, the Wildcats would take
their first lead of the game after recovering an Edward
Waters fumble at the Tiger's 25 yard 1mne. Six plays
later, Samas called his own number again and dove in
the end zone fr-om one yard away for his second touch-
down. Again, Rosenbaum was good on the point after
attempt and the Wildcats now led, 14-7.
The Wildcats scored for a final time in the first
quarter after a high snap on a punt attempt sailed over
the head of Tiger punter Rodriquez Owens. To prevent
a Wildcat touchdown, Owens kicked the ball through
the end zone for a safety and the points extended the
Wildcats lead to 16-7.
Midway through the second quarter, the Tigers
would respond. After a short 4 play, 38-yard drive, the
Tigers cut the Wildcat lead to just six points when
Turman hit Samuel Charles on a one yard pass play for
touchdown. The extra point was missed so the
Widcats held a 16-13 lead.
With 2:10 remaining in the first half the Wildcats
icesdtheir three point advantage. After a FVSU
drve stalled at the 28 yard line of the Tigers,
Rosenbaum made a 38-yard field goal (his longest of
teseason) to push the Wildcat lead to 19-13.

AMVBAS SADOR ANSD REWV YOUNG LEAD S
DISCUS SION ON\ MARTHA'S VINEYARD
AT TASTE OF ROAD SCH-OLAR
Shearer Cottage in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard.
Ambassador Young addressed a standing-room only audience of more than
300 people who came from across the U.S. The evening included introduc-
tions by Amanda Davis, Emmy award-winning co-anchor for FOX5 News in
Atlanta, Ga., and Dr. Louis Sullivan, founding dean of Morehouse Medical
School and former Secretary of Health and Human Services in President
George H.WV. Bush's administration.
"I've faced down police and barking dogs. I'm not afraid of many things in
life. I'm not scared of breaking my leg or breaking my arm, but I am scared
of Alzheimer's," Ambassador Young said to the crowd. The comment res-
onated strongly with the audience, as the focus of Road Scholar's programs
is to offer opportunities to keep mentally engaged through learning and tray-
In his one-hour discussion, Ambassador Young provided a thought-provok-
ing analysis of a range of topics from the power of economics in the Civil
Rights movement to the influential policy makers in President Obama's
administration to the recent collapse of the world's financial markets.
"It was such an honor to have Ambassador Young with us for this year's
Taste of Road Scholar," says Kathy Taylor, associate vice president of com-
munity development for Elderhostel and Road Scholar. "His insight is always
thought-provoking no matter what the topic and was particularly meaningful
to those who attended our program."

WCGL CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF SERVICE
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Victory AM 1360 WCGL became
Jacksonville's first full-time radio station- with an all-gospel music for-
mat in 1979 with the commitment to present the word of God to the.
Jacksonville community. While the local radio industry has encoun-
tered hundreds of ownership, format and personnel changes during
this period, WCGL has remained "Jacksonville's Longtime Friend"
with the same management team for 20 of the past 30 years.
"I have been blessed to lead this great organization over the past 20
years," said Deborah Maiden, owner and general manager of
WCGL. "Our mission has remained intact since 1989 and I am
extremely proud that we have not wavered in our desire to serve this
community with great gospel music while presenting the word of
God through the various ministries that air on our radio station daily.
That is why we have no problem with our trademark, Victory AM
1360 WCGL, Where Christ Gets Lifted."
This year, WCGL will commemorate its 30th anniversary with a
gospel celebration concert on Saturday, November 7th at the 5,000-
seat Paxon Revival Center, 5461 Commonwealth Avenue. Gospel
recording artists scheduled to appear will be the legendary Canton
Spirituals, Vickie Yohe, The Nevels Sisters, Keith "Wonderboy"
Johnson, and James Fortune & FIYA. Vendor space is available
inside the church's atrium.
For more information, call WCGL Radio at 904.766.9955.
