JOHN LEGEND "Evolver" (Sony) 4 stars (out of 5)
There are a raft of guest stars on "Evolver," John Legend's follow-up to 2006's "Once Again."

Fortunately, Legend's own considerable talents form the foundation for these 13 songs, which don't really need any additional boost from A-listers such as Kanye West, OutKast's Andre 3000 and Brandy.

Q-TIP "The Renaissance" Grade: B-plus

By Glenn Gamboa
Newsday (MCT)

It's hard to believe it's been nine years since Q-Tip's first — and, technically, only — solo album, "Amplified," considering how much he has to say and how well he says it. And one spin through "The Renaissance" (Universal Motown) will have everyone wondering how he could have stayed away so long.

By Jim Tankersley
Chicago Tribune (MCT)

CHICAGO — There's a maxim in American politics about young people. Every year, there's a candidate who counts on them to finally vote in force. And every year, that candidate loses.

Until this year.

The youth vote came out strong for Barack Obama on Tuesday, perhaps in near-record numbers. Thanks to that — and to the black vote, and the Latino vote and the yuppie vote — the Illinois senator is on his way to the White House.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — For same-sex couples, the roller coaster ride for the right to marry shifted Wednesday from the rough and tumble of a political campaign back to the California Supreme Court.

And the fate of gay marriage in this torn state is as murky as ever.

"It's very hard to predict what the court will do," said Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California-Irvine Law School. "This is an issue where there isn't enough law to make a prediction."

Jon McLaughlin-OK Now
Island Records

By Sandhaya Mansfield, Courier Staff Writer

Jon McLaughlin is back, with a a new hit single "Beating My Heart" of his second record "OK Now".

The last time we saw Jon McLaughlin, the singer/songwriter was performing his Oscar nominated song "So Close" from the Disney Movie "Enchanted". Since then, the twenty-five-year-old McLaughlin has gone back to the recording studio to undergo both a musical and stylistic transformation. With the help of his new producer John Fields (Rooney, Jonas Brothers), co-writing with Jason Reeves (Colbie Callait's "Bubbly"), writer/producers Tricky and The Dream (Rihanna's "Umbrella"), Troy Verges (Kenny Chesney's "You Save Me"), and Brett James (Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take the Wheel"), McLaughlin achieves his new sound.

William Wells Brown (November 6, 1814 – November 6, 1884) was a prominent abolitionist lecturer, novelist, playwright, and historian. Born into slavery in the Southern United States, Brown escaped to the North, where he worked for abolitionist causes and was a prolific writer. Brown was a pioneer in several different literary genres, including travel writing, fiction, and drama, and wrote what is considered to be the first novel by an African American.

Read Clotel; or, the President's Daughter by William Wells Brown, one of three of his works available from Project Gutenberg.

Sweep: Dark Magick, 
by Cate Tiernan

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 186 pages
Publisher: Puffin (June 25, 2001)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0141311126
ISBN-13: 978-0141311128

By Brandie Moore, Courier Book Editor

"Cal had used spells on me tonight, spells of binding so I couldn't move. Why? So I wouldn't interfere in his battle with Hunter? So I wouldn't be hurt? Or because he didn't trust me? Well, if he hadn't trusted me before, he knew better now. I clamped my teeth together on a semihysterical giggle. It wasn't every girl who would throw a Wiccan ceremonial dagger into the neck of her boyfriend's enemy.

Dark Magick is book four of 14 (plus a bonus novel) of the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan. So far in the series, Morgan, our main character, found out she is a blood witch, she is adopted, and that her real parents were burned to death when they were locked in a barn.

As a first time voter, I had mixed feelings about this election. 

I declared myself as an independent and never thought I would get involved with politics, since I see and experience the economic crisis that truly is affecting everyone, I have started to pay more attention to the daily news and tried to find out how we got into this situation. 
By Rick LaPlante, New Haven Schools Public Information Officer

New Haven Unified School District voters elected Kevin Harper, Michelle Matthews and Jonas Dino to seats on the Board of Education in Tuesday's election.

Mr. Harper, who currently serves as president of the five-member Board, was elected for a second term, and Mr. Dino won a third term. Ms. Matthews, who has served on School Site councils at Emanuele Elementary, Barnard-White Middle and Conley-Caraballo High, will fill the seat vacated by Jenn Stringer, who chose not to run for re-election.

CHICAGO — When the first Obama supporters cleared the metal detectors at Grant Park at a little after 6 p.m. on election night, they burst into a run across the open grass, some elbowing each other to get as close to the stage as the barricades allowed.

Many thought this would be the biggest thing they saw in their lives.

From the African-American Registry:

Theodore McNeal was born on this date in 1905. He was an African-American Union organizer and politician.

From Helena, Arkansas, after graduating from high school in his hometown, he moved to St. Louis working at a ceramics and brick plant. A few years later, he took a temporary position working on a Pullman car. In 1930 McNeal was one of the first St. Louis-area Pullman-car workers to join the International Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. Seven years later, McNeal and other union officials succeeded in signing a hard-earned contract between the Pullman Company and the brotherhood, a promised agreement between a large American company and a predominantly Black union.

Courier Staff Report

Some James Logan students who are 18 years old are casting their first votes in today's election.

"It feels good to have a voice. It is one thing to listen to the news, but it's different being a part of it," said Justin Santos, a senior.

Eighteen-year-olds have had the right to vote since 1972, when President Richard Nixon the 26th Amendment, which lowered to voting age from 21 to 18.

After a campaign that seems like it will never end, it's finally time for the nation to pick a new president. And if you're a political junkie, or just an average person with a few questions about the election, technology makes staying informed and active easier.

Here are a few tech tools to help you out:

By Tawab Fakhri, Courier Staff Writer

The James Logan high School administration has been cooking up a new system that will be very bad news to class cutters and tardy students. The school's new Automated Dialer System, known as ParentLink, will soon be up and running, reporting all tardy and uncleared absences that day to parents via phone.

Last year the previous automated attendance machine, which notified parents, was broken beyond repair. This opened an opportunity to retire the flawed machine, and replace it with a new system. 

An African elephant
By Chad Brady, Courier Daily Editor

Elephants in Kenya are sending text messages to rangers to warn them if they get too close to villages.

Its a new sort of security system put in place by the Save the Elephants group, which works by setting up a virtual fence around villages using a global positioning system.

Whenever an elephant crosses this "fence", coming too close to the village, sensors in the elephant's collar detect it and send a text message to the phone of a local ranger, who then drives to where the elephant is and scares it away with the car's headlights.

"Fallout 3"
For: Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC
From: Bethesda Game Studios
ESRB Rating: Mature (blood and gore, 
intense violence, sexual themes, 
strong language, use of drugs)

By Billy O'Keefe
McClatchy-Tribune (MCT)

Like an increasing number of games sophisticated enough to do so, "Fallout 3" trades in conscience, delivering one moral quandary after another and letting players tell the story on their own terms.

On paper alone, it's impressive. Bethesda claims "Fallout 3" has more than 200 possible end scenarios, and it's easy to see why. Your playing field — post-nuclear Washington, D.C. and surrounding areas — is gargantuan, and while a few linchpin characters are off-limits for storyline purposes, the overwhelming majority of them are fair game for whatever degree of good or evil (including death) you wish to impose. Between the lengthy main story and the ridiculous bounty of optional side missions, it's a given your character has so many possible fates.

Jim Lehrer doesn't Twitter. At least, not yet.

But Lee Banville has hopes. As editor of the 12-year-old "Online NewsHour," Banville bridges the gap between traditional PBS viewers and twentysomethings who want news on demand.

On election night, while Lehrer is anchoring coverage on PBS, Banville and his "Online" team will be reaching out to an audience that's not necessarily anchored to the sofa. That means not just delivering election news to computers and phones and streaming "NewsHour" coverage on the website (www.pbs.org/newshour) but also partnering with YouTube on a video project and embracing Twitter as a reporting tool.

Roy Williams Day is Friday. Roy’s quote to you is, “It’s always easier to do the wrong thing, and harder to do the right thing.”

By Jamey Padojino, Courier Staff Writer

John Rodriguez, principal of House 11, is on leave for the remainder of the first semester to recover from injuries suffered in the line of duty and surgery to repair the damage.

While he's off recuperating, Assistant Principal Ramon Camacho will fill in as House 11 principal.

On September 17, Rodriguez was severely injured when he was monitoring the lot by the bandroom after school. Rodriguez spotted a car in the area that was not supposed to be there and attempted to stop the car. Instead of stopping, the car hit Rodriguez, the impact causing him to fall down a nearby stairway, causing extensive knee damage as well as more minor injuries.

Senior night…

Our senior’s last home game took place Friday against Washington. It was a very hard fought game, but we just couldn’t pull out a victory. Our offense was only able to score seven points, which would have been enough if our defense didn’t give up a touchdown and a two-point conversion in the 4th quarter. The final score was 14-7. It was very sad and frustrating knowing our season isbasically over now.

From the wikipedia:
Lois Mailou Jones (November 3, 1905 – June 9, 1998) was an African American Harlem Renaissance painter. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts and was an incredibly talented artist that continues to influence many today.

Until Friday, James Logan had not lost in the Mission Valley Athletic League in their last 18 games. The result: the Colts have not missed out on the Northern California Section playoffs since 1998. 

Friday night they lost to Washington and most likely ended their NCS playoff chances for the year.

This was the biggest game of the year so far for Logan (3-5, 3-1) and Washington (5-4, 5-0) as they both entered the cold, rainy, Halloween night undefeated in league and with a chance to clinch a MVAL crown.
