E Features Tampa Delegates Talk About DNC Convention m w 1-Q. w en BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer > As the battle of words and philosophies go on, Novem ffi ber isn't that far away when ::J we all will go to the polls to 1vote for the next President of the United States. Last week, the Democratic National Convention con vened in Charlotte, North Carolina, and delegates from Tampa were in attendance. One of those delegates, Mayor Bob Buckhorn said, "I thought it was great -a lot of enthusiasm and op timism. It represented the true diversity of this country and everyone left ready to vote." "Mrs. Obama, San Anto nio Mayor, Former Pres. Clinton and Pres. Obama all impressed me with their speeches." "Each, in their own way c made a case for the Presi-0: dent and were very effec u.. tive." State Senator Arthe c:( nia Joyner said the De mocrats are fired up, and C ready to go. f3 "The Democrats are or ganized and have their eyes >a: on the prize. It was a wonW derful and exhilarating expe Gj rience. You could see the 0 diversity of America in the w :r: en :::::i m ::J Q. z MAYOR BOB BUCKHORN arena." Senator Joyner said this was her seventh conven tion, and this one ranked right at the top. "Michelle Obama's message, along with the other speakers, really set the tone for the convention, and showed the nation we truly are a party of all the people; Blacks, whites, Latinos, Asians, gay, straight, men, women, old, young, rich, poor, middle-class, working people and professionals. We all left with a better feeling for November To my constituents, this is the most important election in the history of this country. It's important we register and vote by mail, early, or in perSTATE SENATOR ARTHENIA JOYNER son on Election Day. This is our country, and no one will take it away from us." State Representative Betty Reed said she thought the convention was wonderful. "All of the speakers were inspiring and at the same time, down to earth. This was the first convention I've physically attended. I came back pumped up and ready togo. "The room was full of en ergy, and this was a group of people who want what's best for the people. Everyone talked about the people and our duty to protect this country Even the represen tatives from the military spoke well. STATE REP. BETI'YREED "We can do better and with the right people in the White House, we will do bet ter. The First Lady's speech was so inspiring, and set the tone for the rest of her hus band's campaign. We all could feel and connect to what she was saying. We've all been there at some time in our lives." Dianne Hart, CEO of the East Tampa Business and Civic Association, said she thought the convention was phenomenal. "All of the speakers were excellent. We were all im pressed with First Lady Michelle Obama and how she talked about her hus band. She gave him a more DIANNE HART human presence and she was very instrumental in getting people to relate to them by sharing similar lifestyles to the average per son. "This was my first conven tion, and I was overwhelmed by the energy of all the peo ple in the room who felt the same as I do about the future of this country. This made us all want to go home and do whatever it takes to make sure President Obama serves another term. I'd also like to say that former presi dent, Bill Clinton's speech touched the spirit of all of us, especially when he told the truth about job creation and how the GOP has tried to distort the truth. i= w ..J ..J ::J m Future Miss Bethune-Cookman Universitv Coronation Set ..J The Hillsborough County Chapter of Bethune -Cook i= man University National Z Alumni Association will host w en its 30th annual fundraiser, C "F uture Miss B-CU" Corona a: tion on Sunday, September 0 30, 2012, 4 p. m. at the Col it l ege Hill Conference Center, 1002 E.

Pres. Obama Takes The Helm For the second time in the 211rt century, President Barack Obama has made history. To overwhelming applause that sounded like the pounding of ocean surf, America's 44lh president received once more the approval to become the standard bearer of the Democratic Party. At his side were his wife, Michelle, and his daughters, Malia and Sasha, later to be joined by his vice president, Joe Biden and Biden's wife, Jill, all on stage not only before America, but before a continuously fasci C nated world. If Only one other nation had done what America did in C the past century. Years earlier, the formerly apartheid z nation of South Africa resoundingly elected a Black c( man, Nelson Mandela, as president of its union. The world was speechless. Behind closed doors, bets went C down as to how long his administration would last be ffi fore South Africa came apart at the seams. Yet, in spite of the world's misgivings, South Africa survived. tIndeed, the same has been said about America whose history of racism is only eclipsed by the legacy of its cui tural and ethnic diversity. So, it was with that in mind, W that a stadium full of frenzied delegates and incredulous onlookers screamed, stamped, applauded, and wept for :z:: joy as a Black man agreed once more to make America 0 the home of the brave and land of the free. It was a sight ; to melt the hardest of hearts. Some say the Mayan calendar is correct, and that bu D. manity shall not live to see another tomorrow. But we Z say if indeed, humanity ends tomorrow, thank God for iii allowing us to witness America today, when once more ::::t the Biblical truth of history in the form of a man has as sumed leadership. Let the critics contend with destiny. m _. w z i= z w 0 C a: 0 _. u. llore Campaign Code Words, And oou-Whisdina: wenare' T he African (Ashanti) proverb, "One falsehood spoils a thousand truths," comes to mind when listening to some of the 2012 political campaign advertisements. Sadly enough, voters are being forced to visit websites such as Politifact.com simply to verify the truth of statements and accusations made by various politicians. For example, during the present presidential cam paign, one of the advertisements for Mitt Romney states President Ba.rack Obama has "removed the requirement for welfare recipients to work" from welfare legislation. In what some Obama supporters believe to be "race baiting," because too many Americans associate Blacks with welfare even though there are more whites receiv ing welfare, the accusation is for all practical purposes, false and grossly unfair. The truth is the requirement that welfare recipients seek employment and/or provide community service remains a part of the program. Indeed, President Obama approved removing the requirement only for those states where governors requested waivers to try other incentives. The states receiving waivers will be required to meet job creation goals in return for having the waiver approved. Thus, the Republican accusation misstates the truth of the matter. But like other examples of so-called "double-speak," if you, the reader, don't ask, you might never realize you've been lied to. l .... lndlha......,.IWIJ:I DNCindRNCI found myself wondering what planet, state, or political party did Florida's Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll think she repre sented when she told news reporters, "I look f01ward to welcoming my fellow Repub licans from across the coun tJ:y to Tampa, where they will find the most inclusive con vention ever, one that will truly reflect the diversity of Florida and America." I don't know about you, but every time media cam eras showed the faces of del egates at the 2012 RNC, I could usually count the number of Black delegates on three fingers. Besides, out of so Florida delegates to the RNC, only two Blacks were chosen, Carroll and a Black male One to twenty-five is hardly a ratio that anyone would describe as being in clusive or being reflective of the diversity in Florida or in America. No wonder Blacks have a love affair with current De mocrats. Indeed, every time media cameras showed faces of the delegates attending the Democratic National Convention (DNC) many Black, Latino, Asian, and other ethnic groups were visible in the audience of dele gates. Previously, we learned the Franklin Roosevelt administration's non-discrimi nation policies; the inclusion of Blacks in photographs and White House events and meetings; the hiring of Blacks in federal government jobs; and the formation of a "Black Cabinet" served as catalysts for "a major shift in the allegiance and voting patterns of Blacks Moreover, because the New Deal programs provided thousands of jobs for Blacks, 71 percent of Black voters voted for Democrats in 1936. Indeed, the fact that the 1936 DNC held in Philadel phia was the first convention that made sure Blacks were visible at the convention by seating them among the press and delegates and by scheduling Blacks to deliver keynote speeches from the podium helped attract Black voters as well. Consequently, white Southern convention delegates walked out of the convention in protest of the Black speakers and dele gates. By 1948, President Harry Truman won the election with 77 percent of the Black vote. After TI'U man issued an order deseg regating the U S. military and an executive order pro hibiting discrimination in federal employment_in early 1948, a group of Southern Democrats left the party and formed the Dixiecrat Party." Their opposition to integra tion and desire to retain Jim Crow laws caused them to oppose every piece of civil rights legislation brought before Congress. In 1956, Dwight D. Eisenhower received 39 percent of the Black vote and, in 1960, Richard Nixon received 32 percent of the Black vote. After the election, President John F. Kennedy and later President Lyndon Johnson supported and implemented civil rights policies and embraced Blacks in their cam paign and federal workforce. When Johnson pushed the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 through Con gress, he received 94 percent of the Black vote. After Johnson signed the 1965 voting Rights Act, no Repub lican presidential candidate has received more than 15 percent of the Black vote. Since the 1940s four Blacks have served in the U. S. Senate. Moreover, while the first 21 Black Congres sional representatives (1868 1901) were all Republicans only five of the 79 represen tatives elected between 1926 and 1997 were Republicans So, now you know.

You are the change.' People expected the President to solve all of the nation's problems instantly by magic because we broke the mold in choosing him. He communi cated a great truth in remind ing us that we are all responsible for making our country work." Ms. Louise Vincent said, As always, President Barack Obama seemed cool under pressure. I like the fact that he acknowledged the short-comings of his adminis tration. And I like the direc tion that he is planning to take the country. Mrs. Chloe Coney said, What impressed me was the MRS. CHLOE CONEY way President Obama talked about his humble be ginnings and how he kept the promise to bring about healthcare. He has made sure that the military is taken care of and he talked about the PELL Grant to help students attend college. "We know here locally that he has brought about jobs. The high-speed rail would have created hundreds of jobs, but Governor Rick Scott rejected it. President Obama needs four more years. He needs four more years to finish. Attorney Clinton Paris said, "President Obama's National Democratic Com mittee Presidential Nomina tion acceptance speech championed themes of hope, patriotism service, and his faith in, not himself, but rather what the American President Obama Visits West Tampa Eaterv On Saturday President Barack Obama spoke to a crowd of n,ooo people in Seminole Florida, telling them the election is a choice "be tween two fundamentally different paths for America, two fundamentally different vision for our future. The President said his President Obama greets a patron at the West Tampa Sandwich_ Shop. opponent, Mitt Romney, offers the same prescriptions they've had for 30 years. Tax cuts, tax cuts, gut a few some tax cuts, and more tax cuts to help you lose a few extra pounds. President Obama later made a surprise stop at the West Tampa Sandwich Shop, a small Cuban eatery known as a gather ing place for political talk among its mostly Hispanic clientele and a favorite tour stop for politicians. The President entered the restaurant to cheers from the late lunch crowd and ordered Cuban sandwiches for his entourage, then went from table to table for about 45 minutes, getting varied and sometimes blunt responses from patrons. Speech Bv President Barack Obama m people are capable of doing. "During the speech, President Obama made a compelling case for his cur rent presidency and laid out a plan for the country's pros perity during his second term. He walked, talked, and acted presidential. This speech will be long remem bered as the moment that he sealed his re-election as pres ident. Tom Forward said, "President Obama's speech Thursday night re minded Americans to hold on to hope and to look forward. Nothing of value comes quick and easy in life. Change takes time, and we must have faith that we are on the right course. "He reminded America that we are not entitled to success; we have to earn it. : Although his plan was light on specifics, he made me feel that despite the doWnturn, the foundation for recovery is solid and in place for a new era of economic growth and prosperity." Attorney Roderick Ford said, "President Obama played the role of a confident and cool incum bent and delivered an effec tive speech. However, his energetic campaign-speaking style of 'o8 would have been more effective Ms. Tonya Lewis said, "President Barack Obama spoke to the world with assurance that he can get the job done I trust that he can get the job done.

Republican Puppets After watching President Barack Obama speak at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte last week, I was reminded of why he became so popular in the first place. The sincerity he exudes draws people to him. At the same time, his speech also made me even less understanding of the Blacks who are actively cam paigning for Mitt Romney in the presidential race. I keep finding myself wonder ing what they're thinking. Before 2007, even though I didn t agree with their posi tions, I could at least respect Black Republicans coming from. Most of were business owners upwards of six figC annually. So aligning with a political c that endorses tax Z for the wealthy and CC attracts a large number of successful entrepreneurs made perfect sense. W I understood their argu ment concerning the Demo cratic Party taking the Black w vote for granted. And the [ij idea of gaining politicallever C age by at least giving Repubw licans an opportunity to make concessions for our :J vote didn't sound like a bad proposition in theory. a. But that was before the Z Party did sometu thing that I'm hard pressed -' to believe the Republican _, ::: Party would even try. They m a Black man, who ... .. ., loves Black people, represent them in a race the highest office in the At that_ point politics should have been thrown out window. If for no other reason than a sense of shared struggle, any Black person with a drop of conscientious ness should have felt obli gated to support a brother who was given an unprecedented opportunity to affect real change in a country with a sordid history when it comes to race relations But of course that's the problem. Black Republicans who are unable to see the big picture are not only uncon scientiously, but they seem unconscious to the point of being almost comatose. I don t know how to ex plain any person of color who would knowingly continue to associate with an organiza tion that has shown such utter disregard and spect for them as individuals. There is no way they could have missed the comments made by some of their white Republican counterparts who compared President Obama to everything from a monkey and an African witch doctor, to a terrorist. And when their party was hi jacked by a blatantly bigoted group known as the "Tea Party," it's hard to imagine that a Black person could look past such hatred and be lieve that thinking isn't shared by the majority who embraced them. But not only did these in dividuals remain loyal to the Republican Party despite the racism bubbling beneath the surface, some of them even allowed themselves to be used as token attack dogs in VICious media assaults against President Obama. Their presence has been so strategically and obviously placed throughout national news broadcasts that you can't turn on a television without seeing one of these Uncle Toms or Aunt Thomasinas applying lipstick to Romney's backside. The saddest part being that they couldn't appear happier dur ing the entire process of being pimped. There is a reason why a recent poll showed that o% of PUBliC HEARING ON JOSEPH AND JENNIFER FERRANTE VARIANCE WAIVER REQUEST Thursday, September 10, 1012 !Mm Frederk:k B.

Besides the fact that he gives off the im pression that he could be the biggest jerk ever, a large ma jority of Blacks understand the gravity of the moment, know what's at stake and re alize that it may be a hundred generations before some thing like this happens again. Most of us just want to enjoy it for as long as possible. The wannabees" and "sell-outs who proudly claim their membership among the o% just don t get it and are in for a rude awakening. Win or lose, when this thing is over and they've been used for all they're worth, they'll find themselves discarded onto the same curb marked with the shame and embarrass ment of all those who fell for the same tricks. When it happens, they shouldn't worry about being alone in the wilderness of the unwanted for long. P. T. Barnum once famously said that "there's a sucker born every minute. So, in a world where people often forget who they are and where they come from, sooner or later someone just as naive and gullible will come along to keep them company.

President Obama Set To Commemorate 9/11 Anniversarv WASHINGTON Presi dent Barack Obama is asking Americans to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks by remembering how far the nation has come since terrorists struck 11 years ago. In his weekly radio and In ternet address, Pres. Obama asks Americans to remember those who lost their lives as well as the loved ones they left behind -and honor the first-responders who risked their lives to help. Pres. Obama says Amer ica has come back stronger and al-Qaida is on the path to defeat. The president also notes that the 9/11 anniversary is being commemorated Tues day by public service activi ties in communities around the country President Obama Humblv Makes Convincing Case For Re-election Seconds before beginning what factions of the conserva tive pundit community billed as the most important speech of his life, President Obama hugged First Lady Michelle Obama, and you if paid close enough atten tion, you could see her tell him, ''You got it, babe. With an economy that has shown nominal signs of im provement, yet remains marred with high levels of joblessness, the president needed to nail his two-term pitch to voters. In his quest to do so, he meshed the themes of "hope" and "change" from the previous campaign with the political realities of today. It began with a critique of the tone of his competitor s convention: Now, our friends at the Republican convention were more than happy to talk about everything they think is wrong with America but the y didn't have much to say about how they'd make it right. They want your vote, but they don't want you to know their plan. He then mocked the GOP' s way of governing: "Have a surplus? Try a tax cut." "Deficit too high? Try an other." "Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning!" Voter Registration-You Hove Until Oct. 9th To Register To Vote Early Voting For General Election Oct. 28 Nov. 3 Only 1 Week In florida "o"'<. General Election -Nov. 6 Pres. Obama's DNC Speech Gets 35.1 Million Viewers Democratic presidential candidate, U.S. President Barack Obama claps on stage after accepting the nomination for president during the final day of the Democratic National Convention at Time Warner Cable Arena on September 6, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina. NEW YORK -President Barack Obama can beat rival Mitt Romney as a tele vision draw, but can't eclipse his old self. The Nielsen company said 35 7 million people watched the final night of the Demo cratic convention on Thurs day between 10 and 11 p.m. Eastern time. That's when the president delivered his nomi nation acceptance speech. Last week, Mitt Romney had 30.3 million viewers for his speech at the GOP conven tion, with an assist from Clint Eastwood. Four years ago, Nielsen said candidate Barack Pres. Obama's speech was seen by 38.3 million. But that esti mate did not include PBS' au dience, which no doubt pushed the audience over 40 million Gallup Poll Shows Bump In APProval For Pres. Obama AfterConvendon Those looking for a conven tion bump may find what they are looking for in the Gallup daily tracking poll, which pro duced good news on Friday for President Barack Obama. Gallup's last three nights of interviewing of adults, con ducted Sept. 4 to 6, shows Pres. Obama with a 52 per cent approval rating, the high est approval percentage reported for Pres. Obama on the Gallup tracking poll since May 2011, just after the killing of Osama bin Laden. The latest results represent a seven percentage point in crease in Pres. ap proval rating from 45 percent, from Gallup's previ ous three-day sample, con ducted Sept. 1 to 3. Each sample is based on interviews with roughl y 1,500 adults and has a margin of sampling error of +I-3 percent. President Obama Vies For Health Care Edge In Florida BOSTON -Mitt Rom ney said he would retain some popular parts of the new health care law he has pledged to repeal, while President Barack Obama focused attention in all-important Florida on the Republican ticket's stand on Medicare, an issue that' s been more favorable to De mocrats. Voter Registrauon Drives Adopting New Methods TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Some organizations are turn ing to sophisticated data mining, direct mail, the In ternet and other strategies to register voters typically un derrepresented on the rolls, including young people -and ethnic minorities. Others are simply targeting those who favor their political goals, such as conservative Chris tians. The shift away from more traditional voter registration drives -like volunteers with clipboards in front of a su permarket is driven as much by restrictive state laws as it is better technol ogy. Several states including Florida have recently passed legislation setting tight dead lines for groups to turn in voter applications, so groups like the NAACP were looking for ways to get the applica tions directly into the hands of voters. And they also have to rely on voters to tum in the applications themselves. "This is a new effort since the 2000 election," said Uni versity of Florida political ;!! scientist Daniel Smith. 0 "Technology has made it more cost -effective .... When )> you have upwards of 40 peren cent of eligible populations not registered, there is a :::::! market for this kind of work." rFlorida is a particularly important area for the r groups, as it is the largest J;; swing state in the presiden:::::! tial election.

5lack College Football ME:AC/SWAC m Ghost 01 John Marrin MEAC/SWAC Challenge German to In Orlando I In the era of Black College football coaching legends, the belief was that in a close game, the officials would take charge to make sure the hometown won, no matter what it would take. The prevailing view Saturday night was that held true. The ghost of Big John Merritt haunted the Florida A & M University Rattlers in LP Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. Before a crowd of 15,652, the Tennessee State Tigers defeated the Rattlers 17-14, in the John A. Merritt Classic, on a goalline stand in which all photos show FAMU's quarterback Damien Fleming sneaked in on third and fourth downs. The Tigers took the open ing kickoff 58 yards in seven plays, for a lead of 7-0, on a 22-yard pass from quarterreceiver Devin Wilson. m As FAMU could.muster The Annual MEAC/SWAC Challenge was in Orlando over the Labor Day weekend.

Wildcats Answer lnBiuWav BY TED TAYLOR The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats ran off 38 unanswered points to defeat the Alabama State Hornets 38-21, before 17,410, in the annual MEAC/SWAC Challenge, in the Orlando Citrus Bowl on Sunday after noon. The Hornets had jumped out to a 21-0 lead, when Coach Brian Jenkins called on backup quarterback Broderick Waters. Alabama State took the opening kickoff 75 yards in 12 plays for a 7-0 lead on a 5yard run by Greg Jenkins. Minutes later, the Hornets capitalized on a muffed punt by Patrick Cleckley for a 14-0 advantage, when Georgia transfer runningback Isaiah Crowell scored on a 2-yard run. Early in the sec ond quarter, Jenkins scored again on a 3-yard run. Even though starting quar terback Jackie Wilson engi neered his own 12-play, 75yard drive to cut the lead to 21-7, on a 2-yard run by tail back Andronicus Lovette, Waters would provide the magic. The Louisiana Tech transfer entered the game with a little over three min utes remaining in the second quarter. He led the 'Cats on a drive capped by a 20-yard Sven Hurd field goal, for a 21-10 halftime score. In the third quarter, Waters connected with Jhomo Gordon on a 24-yard touchdown pass and took it upon himself for a 6yard touchdown. Finally taking the lead at 24-21, the Cats never looked back. Waters went to the air again for a 47-yard scoring pass to wide receiver Eddie Poole at the 10:39 mark of the fourth quarter. The 'Cats closed the scoring onslaught on a 38-yard run by Rodney Scott. The Hornets added an insignificant touchdown on a 39-yard pass from back. up quarterback Daniel Duhart to T. C. McWilliams. Waters compieted 6-of-9 passes for 110 yards and rushed for 100 yards on n carries.

..... ..... a: w m :E w Ill. Buccaneers Win Season Opener RONDE BARBER The Greg Schiano era has began with a victory as the new Tampa Bay Buccaneer head coach celebrated opening the regular season with a 16-10 win over division rival, the Carolina Panthers. > Earlier, it seemed the weather would decide the ii: game as there was a delay due to lightning. However, z the weather cleared enough < for the game to continue. The Buccaneer defense took control of the game w with Ronde Barber celebrating his 2ooth consecu tive start with an interception, sack and key stop near the goal line on Carolina quarterback, Cam Newton. Buccaneer quarterback Josh Freeman hit Mike Williams with a 6-yard scoring strike and Connor Barth kicked three field goals. Newton finished his evening with 303 yards passing and a touchdown. The Panther running game was not its usual dominating self as Newton only gained 4 yards on five carries, and DeAngelo Williams gained minus 1 on six carries. The Panthers finished the game with 10 yards rushing as a team. After hitting his first eight passes, Freeman went 8 for 16 to finish with 138 passing yards. He was also sacked twice. The Bucs will hit the road Sunday to face the defend ing Super Bowl champion New York Giants at Metlife Stadium. Kickoff will be 1 p. m., with the Giants coming off an opening season loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Andre Ward: The NewHitlinu Andre Ward punches at Chad Dawson in the seventh round of their super middleweight title fight. OAKLAND, Calif. Andre Ward is 28 and hasn't lost a fight since he was 12 years old. The way things are going, he may not lose another one for another 16 years. At least. Ward took on the biggest challenge of his career Saturday when he met light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson for the WBA and WBC super middleweight belts at Oracle Arena. He made it look easy, much the way Floyd Mayweather Jr. did in CJ 2001 when he knocked the f late Diego Corrales out in 10 one-sided rounds. The similarities between that fight and Saturday's bout are eerie. Both matched the two best fight ers in their class and two of the finest in the entire sport. And both were one-sided beatdowns that ended with 10th-round finishes. Ward knocked Dawson down in the third, fourth and 10th rounds and thoroughly dominated one of the best fighters in the world. Dawson surrendered in referee Steve Smoger's arms at 2:45 of the 10th, giving up after absorbing a brutal beating from boxing's next great star. Serena las Stunning u.s. Open Win SERENA WILLIAMS NEW YORK -Finally tested, even trailing, at the U.S. Open Serena Williams turned things around just in time. Two points from defeat, Williams suddenly regained her composure and her strokes, coming back to win the last four games and beat No. 1-ranked Victoria Azarenka 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 on Sunday night for her fourth championship at Flushing Meadows and 15th Grand Slam title overall. Williams took home $1.6M for the victory. Chad Johnson: IRetuseTo Sian The Divorce Papers CHAD JOHNSON MIAMI -Chad Johnson says he refuses to sign divorce papers that will end his brief marriage with Evelyn Lozada. Johnson, via Twitter and his recent tattoo of Lozada's face on his leg, has been ani mate in his fight to save his marriage. Lozada reportedly filed for divorce three days after Johnson allegedly headbutted her during a domestic dispute that led to his arrest; he was cut from the Miami Dolphins and lost an endorsement deal soon after. Johnson has refused to participate in any divorce proceedings and will not sign any paperwork leading to the dissolution of his marriage with Lozada because, according to sources, he feels he can win her back. However, Lozada may not need the former NFL star's John Handcock to finalize her divorce because, under Florida law, she only needs to get a judge's approval. Hoben Grmin Ill, Redskins Stun New Orleans Saints 40-32 NEW ORLEANS Robert Griffin III brought his Reisman Trophy swagger to New Orleans and made his NFL debut look like a Big Easy. Showing a veteran's com posure by scrambling only when necessary, the dynamic Redskins rookie quarterback tormented New Orleans defense with 320 yards passing and two touchdowns in his debut, and Washington held on for 40-32 victory over the Saints on Sunday. The Saints spent nearly the entire game trying to keep up with a Redskins offense powered by youth. Griffin completed his first eight passes, including an ROBERT GRIFFIN III 88-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon, and fin ished 19 of 26 with no inter ceptions and a passer rating of 139 He also scrambled for 42 yards. Panel vacates Saints NFL Bountv Suspensions JONATHAN VILMA, ANTHONY HARGROVE, AND WILL SMITH NEW ORLEANS-The suspensions of Jonathan Vilma and three other players in the NFL's bounty investigation were lifted Friday by a three-member appeals panel and the league reinstated those players a few minutes later. The pan.el said Commissioner Roger Goodell did not have juris diction to hear the players' appeals of their punishment for their roles in the New Orleans Saints bounty pro gram that paid cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents. While the ruling allows Saints linebacker Vilma, banned for the 2012 season, Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove to play immediately, it does not permanently void their suspensions.

Sports lick Rallies Eagles Past Browns 11-16 MICHAEL VICK CLEVELAND --Even after his heroics saved Philadelphia from embarrassment, Michael Vick still had escape on his mind. "Oh man," the quarterback said. "I gotta get out of Cleveland." The Eagles hardly soared but flew away with a win anyway. Overcoming four interceptions and nearly a fifth -by throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to tight end Clay Harbor with t:t8left, Vick rallied the penaltyprone Eagles to a nerve racking, 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. With his team trailing 1610, Vick marched them 91 yards for the go-ahead score on his career-high 56th pass. Before that, the superstar played poorly and showed major rustiness after getting just 12 snaps during the preseason because of in juries.

NY Pollee Accidentallv Sh ts Sh p w rllar To Death NEW YORK -A city po lice officer accidentally shot and killed a bodega worker who was fleeing an arm-ed robbery, authorities said Fri day. The shooting occurred at about 2 a.m. after New York Police Department officers received a report of a holdup. When they arrived, they spot ted an armed man and two other bandits holding the bodega's manager and the worker down on the floor at gunpoint, police said. Two of the robbers, after realizing that police had ar rived, fled to the back of the store, allowing the victims to break free, police said. The worker, Re n a 1 d o Cuevas, ran "full tilt" into an office r po sitioned just outsi d e the door with his weapon drawn, said RENALDO CUEVAS NYPD spokes-man Paul Browne. The two "became entan gled and a round goes off," the spokesman said. "We be lieve it was an accidental dis charge." The victim was struck once in the shoulder. He was pro nounced dead later at the hospital Percentage 01 Hungn African Americans Remains Higher Than The Nation New data recently re leased by the U. S. Depart ment of Agriculture (USDA) reveals that 25.1 percent of African American house holds were food insecure in 2011. Food insecure house holds are those that struggle t o put food o n the table and often don't know where their next meal will come from. This figure is more than 10 percentage points higher than the overall U. S. food insecurity figure of 14.0 per cent. "African Americans con tinue to be disproportion ately impacted by unemployment and poverty, and there is a strong corre lation to food insecurity rates," said Rev. Derrick B oykin, associate for African Ame r ican Leader ship Outreach. "It is unconscionab l e that so many i n our commu nity continue t o suffer, though we know the figures could be far worse if it were not for government tion programs helping to keep hunger at bay." Federal nutrition pro grams Jike SNAP (The Sup plemental Nutrition Assistance Program, for merly food stamps), WIC (Special Supplemental Nu trition Program for W o men, Infants, and Children) and school meal programs have kept more Americans from going hungry. The U. S. food insecurity rate reached an all-time high in 2008 --the highest on record since the USDA began recording in 1995. The figures remained at that level through 2011. According to the report, households with children were almost twice as likely to experience food insecu rity African American households with children, however, wer e hit harder than the U S. population as a whole. While 20. 6 percent of all househo l ds with chil dren were food insec u re, 29.2 percent of African American households with children were food insecure. "In the world's wealthiest nati o n, it is dep lora ble that s o many o f o u r children are at risk of hunger," said Rev. David Beckmann, Presi dent of Bread for the World. "Congress has a moral obli gation to ensure that pro grams that support the most vulnerable in our society are protected from budget cuts." Federally funded safety net programs that helped keep millions of Americans from going hungry in 2011 are currently on the cQ.op ping block as Congress con tinues work on the 2012 farm bill r eauthor i zation and deficit reduction.
