loss at Land Shark Stadium
were really just a case of '
.making the rich richer.
And to make matters
worse, both of New
Orleans' defensive scoring
plays came at critical june-
tures of the game.. ~
The first came with lit-
tle more than a minute gone
in the second half, with
Miami holding a 24-10
lead. What appeared to be a
well-thrown Henne pass
intended for Ted Ginn Jr.
down the left side bounced.
off of Ginn's hands into the
hands of Dairren Sharper,~
who scampered 42 yards to
paydirt for his NFL- lead-
ing third pick-six~ touch-
down of the year. Instead of
achieving some mfomentuin
and pushing the advantage
back to three scores in their
upset bid, the Dolphins
instead found themselves in
a 24-17 dogfight.
Henne's next intercep-
tion was when Miami (2-4)
officially 'lost the bout.
Down 40-34 after 'the Fins
had held the Saints to a
short field goal at the 3:23
mark, a Henne pass intendi-
ed for Greg Camarillo was

heart. He was dedicated to this institution as well as to the principals of ethical lead-
ership. The abiding desire to carry on his legacy led me to Dr. Fluker's door a few
months ago. Our vision for the MJYF is to edify fundamental values and life skills,
encourage moral commitments and develop the ability to engage in ethical reason
ing -- a mission already articulated by Dr. Robert Franklin, the president of
Morehouse College," said Ms. Edmond.
"The forces of money, power,~ and technology are on a collision course with
the fragile traditions of character, civility and community.
This is dangerous territory," says Dr. Fluker. "Who will train a new generation of
courageous, globally connected, ethically centered leaders. Enter the Leadership
Center at Moreho'use," he added. Dr. Fluker has lead the efforts at the Leadership
Center at Morehouse since ... and had worked closely with Maynard Jackson dur-
ing the early life of The Leadership Center.
Phase I of the partnership between the MJYF and Morehouse will consist of
an assessment of needs and the design of the requisite curriculum. This phase will
further define the participation of students, faculty, and administrators at each part-
ner institution, and will identify the requisite training and funding requirements for
a pilot program and subsequent implementations of the MJYF program.
The deliverable from Phase I will be the pilot program.
The Maynard Jackson Youth Foundation, a Georgia non-profit organization,
was founded by Mayor Maynard Jackson in 199'1 to teach leadership skills to young
people. John Holley, the foundation president and Valerie Jackson, Mayor Jackson's
widow and the Chair of the Board of the Foundation, have been responsible for
many components of the programs including leadership training. In October, 2009,
the MJYF Leadership Academy will begin its 18thi Leadership Academy class of
11Ith grade high school students from Atlanta Public Schools and the first class from
high schools located in South Fulton County. Students are selected by their high
school counselors to participate in the academy for one year.
"The Youth Foundation seeks, to enhance self esteem and pride in accom-
plishment, to support a positive value system and to instill a commitment to ethical
public service for the youth we work with," said Ms. Edmond. "These are the prin-
ciples my father taught those around him to live by and these are the values that we
remain committed to pass on to the students of today. We hope to broaden the reach
of MJYF and bring meaningful programs to the metro Athinta community as a part
of my father's legacy," Ms. Edmond added.

pher for "Slumdog Millionaire," Britney Spears and The 2009
"This is such a great opportunity to let loose, have fun, and
learn a dance style that combines ancient moves with modern

highly contagious. At our concert last year, everyone was dancing
in the aisles during our Bollywood piece. Then, we were flooded
with requests to teach this dance style to the community."
The event is open to everyone and no previous dance expe~

FAMU Receives $2.5 Million for
National Intelligence Research Project
Florida A&NI University President James H. Ammons (left) and Carla Willis, vice presi-
dent for University Relations and executive director, FAMU Foupdation, Inc., (right)
accepts a $2.5 million check from Lenora Peters Gant, Ph.D., National Seniot
Intelligence Service and director of the Intelligence Community Center Academic
Excellence and Program Office, to establish and fund a Center of Academic Excellence
TALLAHASS~EE, Fla. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence Community
awarded Florida A&M University (FAMU) a $2.5 million grant over five years (2009-
2014) to establish and fund a Center of Academic Excellence. FAMU is now the 22nd
U.S. institution of higher learning to earn such a distinction.
Lenora Peters Gant, Ph.D., National Senior Intelligence Service and director of
the Intelligence Community Center Academic Excellence and Program Office, present-
ed a check to FAMU President James H. Ammons during halftiine of FAMU's home-
coming football game.
Gant, a 1978 graduate of FAMU's School of Business and Industry, said it felt
great to come back to make the presentation.
"We are not responsible for how we find this world when we are born; howev-
er, we are responsible for how we leave the world."
The principal goal of the Center is to encourage faculty-led student research on
national security issues.. The Center will be a multidisciplinary -research, instructional.
and pre-college school outreach unit aimed at increasing the pool of talented young
men and women. It will' focus primarily, though not exclusively, on minorities and
women from which Intelligence Community agencies (consisting of 16 federal execu-
tive departments and agencies) may recruit new employees.
Some examples of U.S. Intelligence Commu~nity departments and- agencies
include: the State Department, Department of De~fe~nse, Department of Energy, and
the Central Intelligence Agency. The Center will conduct a number of programs and
activities whose aim will be to enhance research spearheaded by faculty, but with
FAMU students and precollege students substantively engaged with faculty. Ultimately,
research enhancement efforts will broaden the pool of available researchers and pro-
vide an important window of exposure to students and faculty who will desire to
become a pbart of the intelligence community in'some capacity or other, yet consistent
with the needs of the National Intelligence Community.
.Keith Simmonds, Ph.D., assistant dean~ of the College of Arts arid Sciences and
professor of public administration and political science,~ will serve as principal investi-
"For the first time in a significant way, we are enabling our minorities and
women to prepare to come to the ~decision-rnaking table where decisions on national
security and international relations. are made," said Simmonds. "We are contributing
to the diversity that this nation seeks and heeds on such a major national matter. -This
grant: really establishes a direct pathway to this very important table."
Gary Paul, Ph.D., associate professor for political science and public adminis-
tration, will serve as co-principal investigator along with co-principal investigator Ren
Moses, Ph.D., associate professor of civil engineering.
Larry Riobinson, Ph.D., professor and vice president for Research, said, "This
awartd shows the tremendous breadth of the talents of faculty and students at FAMU."
Other Center- personnel will include the daily management by a, director who will
serve as the operational liaison between FAMU and the U.S. Intelligence Community
and will be responsible for workings with university officials to achieve the, goals had
objectives of the Center. Le~ttdership will be provided to develop strategic partnerships
with the Intelligence Community agencies such as the Department of State,
Department of Defense, and other public and private organizations in order to facilitate
the .preparation 'of students for professional careers in tthe U.S. Intelligence

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 anid personnel changes during
this period, WVCGL 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, owher and general manager of
WCGLL "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 & FlYA. Vendor space is available
inside the church's atrium.
For more information, call WCGL Radio at 904.766.9955.
