Economic Trouble for the State of
Marc H. Morial
President and Chief Executive National Urban League
This week, the National
Urban League released its
premiere annual research
publication, the State of
Black America 2006 report
before a packed audience at
the National Press Club in
Washington, D.C. I wish I
could say that the news was
full of optimism and pep-
pered with tales of econom-
ic buoyancy that lifts all
boats along a rising financial
tide. But such is not the case,
especially for Black
America. Amidst the spin of
financial newsmakers and
analysts, we must tell the
truth. The State of Black
America is economically in
trouble and getting worse.
The State of Black
America 2006: The
Opportunity Compact report
was compiled and analyzed
against the, backdrop of one
of the most catastrophic
events to ever befall our
nation. Hurricanes Katrina
and Rita exposed in the
starkest and most depressing
terms, the race and class
gaps that represent our
national condition and facts
which previous State of
Black America reports have
In 2006, the fact that the
story is no better is a story in
itself. This year, the Equality
Index, a statistical measure-
ment of disparities or
"equality gaps" between
blacks and whites across
health, education, econom-
ics, social justice and civic
engagement, revealed that
the economic status of
African Americans is 56
percent that of White
Americans. Comparing fac-
tors such as income, unem-
ployment, home ownership,
business ownership, median
net worth, and poverty rates,
the economic status of
Blacks is one percent worse
than just a year ago.
Some would argue that
given the destruction and
poverty witnessed during
Katrina, we should not be
surprised. But given the
growing stock market index
with a national economic
rebound afoot, why is A
Black America not only lag-
ging behind, but losing
The cause is multifac-
eted. Some social commen-
tators argue that the problem
with African American eco-
nomic progress is both his-
torical and systematic in
nature. Others will profess
that it's social and endemic;
the fault of lost ambition and
Frankly, in Black
America, like any other non-
monolithic culture, it is a
combination of 'many fac-
tors. But, each year the
National Urban League's
State of Black America
report illuminates the real
facts and proposes solutions
to address the issues. The
fact is according to the State
of Black America's Equality
Index; the economic divide
that exists between Blacks
and Whites is twenty per-
cent wider than any other of
the five indices. For exam-
ple, the median net worth of
the average African
American family is ten
times less than the average
White family, ($6,166 ver-
sus $67,000 respectively).
This is largely due to the dif-
ference in home ownership,
home equity values and
income. Blacks own nearly
50 percent of their homes,
while Whites own over 70
percent of their homes. But
if you look inside the home
ownership and net worth
numbers, there is much
more to the story.
Blacks experienced over
twice as many home mort-
gage denials and home
improvement. loan denials
than Whites. Clearly, these
denial rates impact the abili-
ty to secure a home and
more importantly, the ability
to improve one's home
value over time. This fact
translates into a $42,800 gap
in Black versus White home
values. When comparing
income status, Black men
earn 70, percent of the
income that White men earn
with the. same level of edu-
cation, creating an average
income gap of $16,876 per
year. Black women with the
same level of education earn
83 percent of the income
that White women earn or
$6,370 less each year.
What can be done?
As part of the State of
Black America Report's
Opportunity Compact, the
National Urban League has
proposed some solutions.
First, and foremost,
Congress and the
Administration should sup-
port and enforce the elimi-
nation of predatory lending
practices by banks and cred-
it agencies to enable all
Americans to afford and
maintain a home. But anoth-
er idea is the creation by
Congress of a "401k like"
"Tax Free Home Ownership
Account" for employees that
would be matched by
employers. This would
quickly spear home owner-
ship. In the 1980's Congress
created the 401k account
concept to spear investment
in the market supposedly to
maximize earnings for an
employee's retirement. The
same can be done to encour-
age home ownership!
One economic bright
spot in the 2006 report Was
the growth of black-owned
businesses over.the past few
years. Although there is still
a. significant disparity
between White and Black
owned businesses, the gap is
narrowing. The. current
equality index of 54 percent
of Black owned businesses

Scientific Study Finds That
Religious Revival Services
Increase Family Harmony
In the most recent issue
of Education and Urban
Society, William' Jeynes, a
professor at California State
University in Long Beach,
conducted a study using
three groups of randomly
selected students to study
the effects of attending reli-
gious revival services, at
Brownsville Assembly of
God in Pensacola, Florida.
According to the New
York Times, the Brownsville
Revival is the most signifi-
cant event of its kind in the'
last half-century, with about
4 million attending since
Jeynes randomly select-
ed a total of 150 individuals,
50 who had attended the
revival services (the Revival
Group), 50 who were wait-
ing in line to attend the
revival services (the pre-
Revival Group), and 50 indi-
viduals from across the
country (General Control
Group) matched by zip code"
with the individuals who
attended the revival servic-
Those who attended the
revival services were much
more likely than the General
Control Group to report an
increase in the quality of
their lives and the quality of
their family life.
They were also more
likely to report improve-
ments in school behavior
and a reduction in their use
of illegal drugs and alcohol.

There are many reasons why
healthy grieving can be especial-
ly difficult for teenagers. Some
grieving teens may even behave
in ways that seem inappropriate
or frightening. Be on the watch
*Symptoms of chronic
depression, sleeping difficulties,
restlessness and low self esteem
*Academic failure or indif-
ference to school-related activi-
*Deterioration of relation-
ships with family and friends
*Risk-taking behaviors such
as drug and alcohol abuse, fight-
ing, and sexual experimentation
*Denying pain while at the
same time acting overly strong
To help a teen who is having
a particularly hard time with his
or her loss, explore the full spec-
trum of helping services in your
community. School counselors,
church groups and private thera-
pists are appropriates resources
for some young people, while
others may just need a little
more time and attention from
caring adults like you.
The important thing is that
you help the grieving teen find
safe and nurturing emotional
outlets at this difficult time.

Mayo Clinic Launches Live Well. Think Well.
Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville kicked off its new com-
munity outreach initiative at a breakfast held at
Jacksonville's main public library. "The Live Well.
Think Well." Healthy Brain Aging community outreach
program was created to educate African-Americans
about healthy brain aging and memory. The thought-
provoking program that included TV-4 Reporter Ms.
Melanie Lawson, Deputy Director, Jacksonville Public
Libraries Dr. Carolyn Williams, Assistant Professor of
Family Medicine Mayo Clinic College of Medicine Dr. Floyd
Willis, M.D., Community Outreach Coordinator, Mayo
Clinic Mrs. Michelle Davis Singleton, RN, and the
enthusiastic Walking Women monologue by Production
Manager, Ritz Theatre & LaVilla Museum Ms. Teneese
K. Thomas, garnered great enthusiasm from the audi-
ence and the question and answer period was compre-
hensive and exceedingly enlightening.
Addressing the audience of nearly 200 citizens, Dr.
Floyd Willis, the program creator said, "It is increasing-
ly important to understand how Alzheimer's and relat-
ed diseases affect the African-American population.
Memory disorders are estimated to affect approximate-
ly 15 million people worldwide and approximately 4
million people in the United Sates. The proportion of
the U.S. elderly who are African-Americans will be
steadily increasing and could nearly double from 8 per-
cent to 15 percent over the next few years."
The Live Well, Think Well program provides infor-
mation about brain health to African-American seniors
and their families. Physicians from Mayo Clinic will
present information to fraternities, sororities, church
congregations, retiree associations and other communi-
ty groups. "Our goal is to present Live Well, Think Well
to as many organizations as possible, "stated Mrs.
Michelle Davis Singleton. "We want to raise awareness
among African-Americans in Jacksonville about the
impact of memory loss to our community."
The initiative has garnered support form some of
Jacksonville's most'prominent seniors. Reverend
Rudolph W. McKissick, Sr., senior pastor of Bethel
Baptist Institutional Church and Dr. Wendell P.
Holmes, the first African-American elected to the
Duval County School board, server as advisory com-
mittee members along with Mesdames Pamela
Quarles, Birdine Jackson and Dr. Rogers Cain.
Mrs. Doris Putman, RN, Mrs. Pauline Exson
Davis and Clarence Von Bostick have volunteered to
serve as Community Ambassadors.

The 2006 Tournament Players Championship was as
always an exciting time on the First Coast. And even
though the favorite in most 'camps' Tiger Woods was
expectedly preoccupied with his concerns for the dete-
riorating health condition of his father that took him
away from the week's activities for a day. However, it
did not deter the "Tiger Watchers" from being on the
prowl. In fact families begin the watch during the prac-
tice rounds early in the week, as this is the time to seek
autographs and see Tiger Woods in a more relaxed
mode. The tournament is a usual time for business net-
working and transactions. Believe or not many of those
business appointments are scheduled around when
Tiger Woods is scheduled to tee-off.
The TPC Party at the Sawgrass Marriott on
Wednesday evening with its MOTOWN theme was
spectacular with foods of the world. The lobby of the
Co mention Center featured a 1957 Red Oldsmobile. In
the center of each eating station there was a Supremes
styled wig on a stand. The Motown theme included a
band performing MOTOWN tunes for a 'love to dance'
audience. People watching during the tournament was
great!. This year I had the opportunity to chat with Mrs.
Ella Simmons who has been volunteering at TPC for

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
How did O.J. Simpson. -

issues before his arrest -
become a hero to some in

Katheryn W h y
blacks willing to vote for
former Washington. D.C.,
maN or Marion Barry after he
was con icted of drug
charges? And why is the
black community less likely
to extend similar support to
noncelebrity blacks who
face prosecution for crimes?
In her new book,

Crime, and African
Americans." Uni\ersitv' of

takes an unflinching look at
ho\\ race. crime, fame and
gender affect public atti-
tudes toward people
involved in public scandals.
"This book \\as inspired
by the O.J. Simpson case,"
said Russell-Brown, director
of the Center for the Study
of Race and Race Relations
at LF's Levin College of
Law\. "I was intrigued by the
black community's support
for O.J.. when he had in
many ways separated him-
self from the communit-."
Opinions about the
Simpson verdict remain
seriously divided along
racial lines, with a majority
of blacks believing he was
set up and a majority of
"whites convinced he got:
away with murder. In that
and other racially charged
criminal cases, each side is
mystified by the other side's
ined 30 cases involving
what she labels "black pro-
tectionism." She also held
focus groups \ith blacks
and finds there is a simple
explanation for the black-
\ white di% ide in these cases.
"When white people hear
that a black celebritN is
accused of a crime, the\ ask
one question: Did he do it?"
Russell-Bro\n said. "For
a longer list of questions.
Did he do it? If he did. \\as
he set up? Is he the only per-
son \\ho has committed this
offense? And is he being
treated the same as whites
\\ho ha'e done the same
Those questions are root-
ed in American histon,
which is rife w\ith examples
of entrapment and false
prosecution of blacks,
She notes specific histor-
ical examples of black
celebrities \\ho faced crimi-
nal charges that, even if true,
seem in retrospect to be the
result of selective prosecu-
tion. For example, after box-
ing great Jack Johnson
defeated a \hite man to \\in
the heavyweight title in
1910. he \was convicted of
transporting a \roman across
state lines for immoral pur-
poses. Similarly. U.S. Rep.
Adam Clayton Powell. \\ho
represented Harlem in
Congress, spent months
defending himself against a
$3.000 tax evasion lawsuit.
Whether or not those
people were guilty. Russell-
Brown said, it is clear today
that the\ were charged
because they were outspo-
ken, powerful and black. It's
a lesson black people
remember when they hear
that a rich or famous black
man is charged with a crime,
takes a fresh perspecti e on
the concept of linked fate.

Americans are alternately\

a clinical professor of la%\ at
the UniversitN of Chicago.
Blacks aren't the only
people who engage in pro-
tectionism, Russell-Bro\ n
notes. \\Wite people extend a
similar protectionism to
police officers facing
charges of brutality. She
cites, the example of the:

Russell-Brown said she
is concerned about the black

extend protection to black
defendants of average
means. \\ho deserve the pre-
sumption of innocence.
"The larger community

Dellums Commission Cites 'Crisis' Among Young
Black Males, Calls For New Policy Direction
of 0 -r
Available from Commercial New
The Commission, which was appointed last year by the
Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies Health
Policy Institute, is in the final stages of preparing recom-
mendations to address the problems faced by young African
Americans. A recent article in the New York Times detailed
the plight of African American males, noting that in 2004 50
percent of Black men in their 20s were jobless and 21 per-
cent of those in that age group who didn't attend college
"The statistics document the problem that we have been
S studying for a year," said Ronald Dellums, the former
California congressman. "The challenges that young
aerial African American men face today will only be resolved by
nt a concentrated effort by government and the private sector to
's Providers" ., address the causes, which range from discrimination to poor
schooling to unsettled family environments to the decline in
blue collar jobs."
-- Moreover, Rep. Dellums said "there needs to be strong
_intervention" when many teenagers and young adults glori-
Sfy drug dealing and street violence over college degrees and

set the right priorities for their lives," Rep. Dellums said.

Judge Won't Delay New Orleans Election
NEW ORLEANS A federal judge whose own home was
flooded after Hurricane Katrina has rejected pleas to delay the
city's April 22 elections, saying he shared residents' "burning
desire for completeness." Civil rights groups had hoped to
S block what would be the city's first municipal elections since
SKatrina, arguing that too man) black residents won't be ableio
participate. The state is implementing an emergency election
plan that includes polling stations set up in 10 Louisiana cities,
a national advertising campaign to inform displaced voters and
an easing of voting rules to allow displaced residents to cast bal-
The latest hearing was called after the NAACP and other
civil rights groups stated that hidden in the election plan was the
equivalent of a poll tax a voting fee that was banned after it
was abused in the South to disenfranchise blacks. They said that
many first-time voters are likely displaced and would have to
pay, for transportation to %ote in New Orleans. The travel
expenses, their pleading reads, are the "modern equivalent of a:
poll tax and would result in outright vote denial."
Ex-Liberian President Taylor Disappears
ABUJA, Nigeria Former Liberian President Charles Taylor
disappeared from his Nigerian haven, days
after his hosts agreed to transfer him to a
war crimes tribunal for the murder, rape and
maiming of more than a half-million
Africans, officials said Tuesday The
announcement of Ta lor's disappearance
came the day before Nigerian leader
Olusegun Obasanjo was to meet with
President Bush at the Xhite House.
That visit was supposed to occur on a Charles Taylor
high note after Obasanjo resolved two
issues of concern to his U.S. allies Monday's release of kid-.
napped American oil workers and last \veek's deal to hand over
Africa's most infamous warlord.
But Taylor vanished Monday night from his villa in the
southern town of Calabar, the government said. A presidential
spokeswoman said members of Taylor's Nigerian security detail
had been arrested.
Institute, said the Dellums Commission will play a crucial
role in setting the public policy debate on how to improve
the environment for Black males.
"The Commission will release a blueprint for fundamen-
tal reform of the policies that have been barriers to positive
development for Black males," Dr. Christopher said. "We
will critique current policies, including zero tolerance pro-
grams and mandatory sentencing, and demonstrate how they
have contributed to the overall problems."
For instance, Dr. Christopher said the Commission is
examining the impact of high stake testing on students in
struggling schools as well as the exclusionary practices
under zero tolerance policies.
"Too often," she said, "federal and state laws and local
educational policies use high stake testing to penalize
students by reducing resources for their schools instead of
investing in better educational programs in those:
Furthermore, Dr. Christopher said that zero tolerance
policies that were intended to prevent weapons in class-
rooms now exclude students, including preschoolers, for'
minor behavior problems.
"The result is increasing numbers ofBlackyouths are on -
the streets without guidance or educational support for their
development." she said. "Increasing juvenile detention rates .
are a result of policies that have weakened the role of;.
schools in helping our young people who need assistance."

S and the suicide of her husband, Wainworth Harris, many women stepped forward to
talk about the amount of, abuse they have received but have not really disclosed,
especially when there are few physical scars that can be seen by the naked eye and
S their husbands have images to uphold.
One lady talked about her minister husband that verbally abuses she and the chil-,
dren before and after church. Yet, during church services, he shows nothing but love
A deacon's wife talked about the almost daily abuse that she suffered during her
less than four-) ears of niarriage. She said it w\as \ery difficult for her to understand
how her husband claimed to be a Christian but could get up even on the first Sunday
morning, after kicking and' bruising her legs during the night because he said, she
was snoring, then go to church, pray until the entire congregation would join him as.
he wiped his tears away: later help serve communion and then once he was back in
the privacy of his house, the loud profanity and malicious picking would begin
again. Most members of their church knew them as "a loving" couple.
Others talk about the physical abuse they' receive but because the scars are not in
areas that could be seen, they never disclose the abuse except perhaps to close
friends or relatives.
The question that comes to many, is why do they stay:. Many \women, particular-
ly Southern-reared women have been taught to love, obey and serve. They keep
hoping that if they do right, the man would change and show appreciation. Others
feel "grateful" that the) are not alone and many just wait until they get the right sit-
uation to leave.
Shinita moved away from her husband's house in November. This was very dif-
Sficult for her, said her cousin, because she had to leave Wain's five-year-old son
who has a brain tumor and she truly enjoyed taking care of him. She was working
two jobs, and was about to move into her own apartment when she was murdered.
; One lad) said it took hker years to leave her abusive husband because she was a
S highly respected business woman and she feared calling the police because she did
not want the information printed in the newspaper.
Others say they stay because of the children, many because of fear, others
because they are ashamed to tell someone and others say they stay because the)
don't have the financial ability to be alone. Yet another great nuniber said that their
husbands are so smooth in public, they feared no one would d believe them when they
disclose the problems.
Another stated that because her husband knew how to mislead people, including
her. she feared him tremendously' and felt that if something happened to her, no one
%would understand why and he would d be able to still appear to be this "good
SChristian" man so, whenever possible, she would tell him, "I am taping your abuse."
Apparently he did not believe her so he \would continue his ramping and ragging and
she would tape the incidents and immediately take them some place for safe keep-

Managing Pain In Pets
If Rover or Whiskers is in pain, you may not hear even the slightest meow or bark,.
preferring to suffer in silence. So how can you tell if your pet's aching?
According to Dr. Mark Stickney, a veterinarian in the College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University, knowing if our pets are
in pain can be tricky.
"All pets show pain differently," says Stickney. "Cats are prone to hide when they
are uncomfortable while dogs tend to show pain more than their feline friends."
There is a lot of variation when it comes to pets and showing pain, he adds.
"The signs of pain are not always obvious. Some common signs are less energetic.
greetings and refusing to eat or drink," he says. "Some animals may pace or pant if
they are in pain or they may growl or snap if the sore spot is touched."
Your pets may show you all of these.signs while some may show you almost
none, Stickney adds. "Cats are the classic example," he says. "They can be in large
amounts of discomfort and still hide their pain."
"What it boils down to is owners know their pets best," he says. "If you think your
animal is uncomfortable and not behaving normally, you should call your veterinar-
ian for an evaluation."
He notes that the causes of pain can come from various sources.
"We see several types of injuries like those caused by cars or other animals," says
Stickney. "Pain can-also occur.as pets get older from diseases such as arthritis."
The most common treatment for pain is non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs,
says Stickney. "There is a wide variety of medication for both dogs and cats. These
products will reduce inflammation and make the animals feel better. They usually
come in flax ored preparations disguised as treats."
If you suspect your pet is in pain and a veterinarian cannot be reached, human
pain medication should never be an option. "Animals metabolize drugs differently
than we do," he says. "Human medication \will not work nearly as well and could
damage organs like the kidneys or liver."
But there are things you can do at home to make your pet more comfortable, he
says. "Try to make arrangements so your pet does not have to move," says Stickney.
"Keep him or her confined in a small room or crate." He also suggests moving food
and water bowls closer to the animal.
Since Rover and Whiskers can't tell you when they are aching, it's up to you to
recognize behavioral changes that might indicate pain.
"The veterinary profession has come a long way in recognizing pain in animals,"
says Stickney. "If you think your pet is in pain, contact your veterinarian because,
there are numerous options to make your pet feel more comfortable."

Hopkins And Tarver
To Fight In June
S Bernard Hopkins
and Antonio Tarver
d IBO light heavy-
r ai weight champi-
S l onship .June 10 in
Hopkins Tarver Boardwalk Hall in a
bout that will be tel-
evised live on HBO pay-per-view.
Hopkins (46-4-1, 32 knockouts) hopes it will be the
final chapter in a storied career that saw him make a
record 20 straight defenses as a middleweight champion
over the span of 11 years. But he lost his lh it two fights,
both to Jermain Taylor, and many are saying the 41-year-
old should have walked away from the ring already.
"The difference between Bernard Hopkins and
Tarver," Hopkins said, "is Bernard Hopkins has some-
thing to prove and has something to go into the ring and
fight for and that's my legacy."
Hopkins has chosen to move up in class to face the
37-year-old Tarver (24-3, 18 knockouts), who has long
said that he doesn't receive the respect in the boxing com-
munity that he believes his record and his abilities war-
"He has big goals. He has big dreams," Tarver said.
"It's up to me to close the door."
Gators Aiming At George Mason
Winning four games in
the tournament and becom-
ing the first No. 11 seed in
two decades to reach the
national semifinals, though,
George Mason University
(27-7) now has a place in
college basketball lore.
The only way for
Florida, LSU or UCLA to
reclaim the spotlight is to
ruin the feel-good story.
The Florida Gators gets-
the first crack Saturday
night, and Donovan knows
he'll face as great a chal-
lenge in winning as he will
getting fan support.
Florida (31-6), which
will face No. 11 seed George
Mason Saturday, April 1 in
the national semifinals. No.
2 seed UCLA plays No. 4
seed LSU in the other game.
"They (George Mason)
are a terrific team and for us
it's another challenge against
a great team," Florida coach
Billy Donovan said.
"They've proven that with
what they did against
Connecticut and Michigan
State and North Carolina.
I'm excited for George
Mason and it's great for col-
"They play college bas-
ketball the way they should
play it," Donovan said.
"We're looking at this game
as playing one of the best
teams in the United States of
America because that is
what they are."
Florida (31-6) made it
here despite starting four
sophomores, losing its top
three scorers from a year ago
and lacking the veteran
poise it usually takes to
make a Final Four run.
LSU (27-8) is even
younger -- and further ahead
of schedule. After Brandon
Bass declared for the NBA
draft last spring many in
Bayou country thought the
Tigers were likely at least a
year away from such a deep
tournament run. Coach John
Brady made sure they didn't
waste the opportunity and
reached the Final Four after
taking down both top-seed-
ed Duke and second-seeded
UCLA (31-6), of course,
is hoping to add to its
NCAA record-setting col-
lection of national champi-
onship trophies as John
Wooden, the godfather of
the program, watches from
Owners Vote To Limit
End Zone Celebrations
NFL owners voted 29-3 Wednesday to limit end zone
demonstrations, including those using props such as
Cincinnati's Chad Johnson's pylon putt or Terrell Owens'
Sharpie signing; or another Owens specialty, sit-ups after a
score. Moves like that will now draw a 15-yard unsports-
manlike conduct penalty. Also banned: Johnson's proposal
to a cheerleader on the sideline --another of his shows last
year-- because he got down on one knee and doffed his hel-
On the other hand, his "Riverdance" routine, one of last
season's highlight film bests, will be OK because he stayed
on his feet. That kind of thing is still allowed, as is spiking,
dunking or spinning the ball after a TD. Still, there will have
to be some innovation by the celebrators. "I'm looking for-
ward to seeing what Chad will come to celebrate with now,"
Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy said after the vote.

JAIL OR BAIL
EDITOR'S NOTE: All suspects are deemed innocent unless proven
guilty in a court of law. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office reports are a
matter of public record. The Florida Star seeks to educate the com-
munity in the hopes of keeping our community safe.
BATTERY AT THE JAIL An officer was dispatched to an
Inmate Detention Facility. Upon arrival, the officer met the
witness, another officer who advised that he was leaving the
control pod when he heard a commotion in the cell block.
When he looked in to see what the problem was, he saw the
suspect on top of the victim, striking him repeatedly with his
fists. As he entered the cell block, the suspect fled back to his
The suspect was advised of his constitutional rights, which he
acknowledged. The suspect stated that when he stepped out of
his cell, the victim had swung at him, and he struck back. He
could give no explanation as to why the victim would swing at
him. When the officer came into the cell block, he ran back to
his cell to get pants on. The suspect had no visible marks on
The officer spoke with the victim who said that he had had a
confrontation with the suspect the day before. He was fairly
new to the cell block and knew the suspect had been there
a while and had lots of friends. The victim said he went to talk
to the suspect because he did not want to get "jumped" by him
and his friends. He said the suspect pushed him into the cell
and attacked him. When another unknown inmate entered the
cell, the victim tried to escape but the suspect caught him out-
side the cell and continued to hit him until the officer came in.
The victim had a bloody nose, split lip, a cut on his left middle
finger, and minor scratches on his neck. He was attended to by
the jail nurse and sent to Shands Hospital for further evalua-
The victim agreed to cooperate with the state attorney's office
in pressing charges. The suspect was re-arrested and the
charge added to his current arrest file.
POSSESSION OF NEW LEGEND DRUGS WITHOUT A
PRESCRIPTION An officer conducted a traffic stop on a
vehicle in the 2500 block of Townsend Blvd. in reference to a
window tint violation. An odor of marijuana was detected and
contact was made with the suspect/front passenger.
During a search of the suspect, in plain view the officer
observed two white pills laying in the bottom of the suspect's
left pocket (camo type pocket) not in a prescription bottle.
Acheck via the drug hotline revealed that the pills were
Judroxyuzine, a non-scheduled ,drug that does require a pre-
scription. The suspect said that the pills belonged to his moth-
er but he uses them for headaches. Due to the suspect's recent
arrest he did not qualify for NTA and the case was closed and
cleared by an arrest.
RESISTING AN OFFICER An officer observed an aban-
doned car obstructing traffic at w. 28th Street and MoncriefRd.
Upon approaching the abandoned vehicle, the suspect was
asked %was he the owner of the vehicle. The suspect advised
that he wvas the owner. NCIC \\as contacted and it was
revealed that the listed vehicle \\as a rental vehicle. The sus-
she give him his property from inside of the velee. Ieo 1-
cer attempted to talk \w ith the suspect but w ith negative results.
She then asked the suspect did he have a driver's license and to
show proof of ownership or a rental agreement and the suspect
refused. The suspect continued to raise his \oice towards the
officer and display' hostile behavior towards the officer.
Another r oficerwas near the scene and observed the suspect's
violent behavior towards the officer. The officer asked the sus-
pect to leave the area and he refused. \When leaving the scene,
the suspect stated. ."M F the police." The suspect's statements
and actions were heard by his friends, who were attempting to.
interfere with the investigation due to the vehicle being towed
The suspect was arrested and read his constitutional rights.
When questioned, the suspect ad\ ised that he \wanted a second
chance and asked the officer to "unarrest" hinm the suspect
then told the officer that she was acting like a "B h" and that
she only wanted to-arrest him. The suspect was transported to
the PTDF for the booking process.

Curb Appeal 101: Exquisite Exteriors Add
Charm, Character And VaTfi-Ts-TheJHome
(ARA) The next time you drive through an upscale neighborhood in your community, take the time to admire a few particular ho6 that seem

S.. 'the time,
the re s
reason why these properties catch your eye. More
than likely, the homes incorporate exterior materials
and designs that embrace the natural environment,
creating a look that is a harmonious blend of archi-
tecture and nature.
Most realtors call this eye-catching aspect "curb
appeal" and it easily influences the home's value.
So what is the best way to improve your home's curb
appeal? According to the latest annual survey by
Remodeling Magazine, renovating the home's exte-
rior with upscale features provides the best financial
return on investment. On average, homeowners can
expect to recoup 103 percent of the siding construc-
tion cost when it comes time to sell higher than
most other home projects.
So when moving forward with renovations sur-
rounding your home's exterior to blend architecture
and nature, taking the time to do some thoughtful
planning and creative thinking will pay off in a big
Upgrade Your Siding
The exterior body of a home is the face it presents
to the world, defines the mood and character of the
home and reflects the image desired by its owners.
Choosing the proper siding material is a crucial step
when updating the exterior.
While a number of alternative wood products
have hit the market in recent years, all-natural
Western Red Cedar is a popular choice as an upscale
exterior siding due to its exceptional beauty, versatil-
ity and durability. Cedar brings an all-natural warmth
and character to exteriors that will last for years to
come. Composite or plastic materials just can't com-
pete when compared to the beauty and feel of all-nat-
In addition, advancements in cedar manufactur-
ing mean you can spend time relaxing and enjoying
your home's exterior, rather then maintaining it.
Today, many manufacturers offer Western Red Cedar
siding pre-finished on all sides. This finishing tech-
nology is important as it ensures the highest level of
quality-finished products, thus greatly increasing
consistent coating, longevity, and overall resistance

Even better, Western Red Cedar siding is an ideal
choice for its all-natural beauty, durability against harsh
environments and excellent thermal conductivity that
helps keep the home cool in summer while reducing
heating costs in winter. In addition to low thermal con-
ductivity, its low density makes Western Red Cedar a
great acoustical barrier as well.
Real Cedar siding is available in a wide variety of
standard and custom profiles, and by mixing these
styles with other natural materials such as stone or river
rock, your home will blend naturally with the surround-
Also, incorporating cedar landscape structures like
pergolas and trellises can really add to the home's char-
acter and further integrates nature with the overall look
and feel. For instance, a decorative overhead cedar trel-
lis beam blends nicely with exterior dentil accents of
similar shape, thus melding style with nature. This type
of cohesiveness really creates a harmonious blend towards increased curb appeal.
Decorative Accents Add Value
Exterior accent details are the finishing touches on a home of distinction; they really set the home apart and are actually quite affordable. Give
your home that elegant appeal of handcrafted beauty with decorative accents like: shutters, gables, cedar soffits or dentil mouldings. These upgrades
all provide an affordable, yet beautiful complement to your home's design and give it some individuality. Even better, ornamental accents at the
peaks of dormers or gables give traditional charm especially when these decorative accents are finished differently from the siding. This two-tone

"Exterior decorative accents offer homeowners a
choice in their home's appearance so they feel like
their home is not only unique to them on the inside,
but on the outside as well," says Peter Lang, general
manager of the Western Red Cedar Lumber
Association. "They customize the home so when you
drive thorough the community the house doesn't look
like everyone else's on the block."
Additionally, integrating Western Red Cedar into
soffit areas is an appealing look. Soffits are the
exposed underside of any building overhead compo-
nent such as: the roof line, balcony or porch; and
upgrading soffits with stylish tongue-and-groove
cedar bestows richness where these areas almost
become an extension of the interior yet blend nice-
ly with the exterior siding and natural surroundings
for a cohesive look. And because simple accents like
cedar soffits do so much to improve your home's
exterior, they can add to the resale value should you
ever decide to sell.
Ready to improve your curb appeal? With the
right planning and all-natural materials like Western
Red Cedar, you'll be able to create a home that

The Florida Star/SPECIAL AT HOME EDITION
With Joe And Nellie Henry
By Marsha Dean Phelts
As we celebrate the 55th Anniversary Year of The Florida Star we invite our readers to join us for a virtual tour in the lives and domiciles
of the Joseph Nathaniel Henry's. The Henrys are dual residents of Jacksonville's Hidden Hills community and Historic American Beach
on Amelia Island, Florida. Through their faith in God both have come a long, long way from where life began for these war time baby
boomers in the Jacksonville's Blodgett Homes Projects and a small country town in North Alabama.

"It was all according to the way you see things. Some people could look at a mud-puddle and see an ocean with ships." Zora Neale Hurston
Joe developed a penchant for fine homes but his first home was at 720 Court E in the. heart of the Blodgett Homes Project. Little Joe good
naturedly referred to the two-story public housing units as the Jefferson Street Condominiums. After all an Olympian sized swimming pool, the
only one in the entire city where Blacks could swim and Black children from all over the city came for swimming lessons and aquatic pleasures
was located at the foot of the projects at 4th and Jefferson Streets.
Joe's parents William and Lottie Ford Henry were his role models. They taught him by example to take care of family no mater how bad times
got. They paid their bills on time and believed it was better to be debt free and content rather than head over heels in debt and dodging bill collec-
tors. His parents were hard.workers and made many sacrifices to become homeowners. It took a while but William and Lottie Henry were able to
buy a,home for their'family of five sons and a daughter.
Preparation, Preparation, Preparation
As an honor student at New Stanton High.School Joe Henry's ambition was to graduate from Tennessee A & I University with a degree in
Engineering. Neither Henry nor his parents had the money to send him out of state for higher education but this reality didn't deter him from achiev-
ing his goals to have a quality education." He worked by day and attended the Florida Junior College and Edward Waters College by night.
Scholarships were not available and as. plentiful as they are today. Joe's parents struggled to educate their six children but refused to do it Little
Joe's way -- cosign a college loan for him to attend the university of his heart's desire. Joe and his sister Gloria worked.their way through college.
While attending college locally Joe was drafted in the army. He became a military police. Loving this work the young recruit made up his mind
to work in law enforcement forever. Joe Henry was athletic. Boxing, running, baseball, football, basketball, diving and swimming were a few
everyday sports he enjoyed. He was impressed with 1960 Olympic gold medal boxer and three time heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali. Joe

believed in. Joe was like that himself and like Ali Joe Henry remained
steadfast and persevered in reaching his goals.
When Henry received his discharge from the U. S. Army he joined the
Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. He served in several capacities as an officer
in intelligence, organized crime and community affairs. He received
extended training and schooling at the FBI National Academy and also

father died before she was born they left their legacies. Her great grandfa-

continued tugging at his heart. Joe had been coming to American Beach as
far back as he could remember. Throughout his childhood his daddy's sis-
S ter, Wilma Henry Irving would pile Joe, his siblings and cousins in her
Pontiac and bring them for outings on American Beach. His Uncle Buddy
and Aunt Elvira (Walter and Elvira Henry) also brought the family to the
beach where good times were endless. At the beach Joe and other swim-
mers swam out to the blue line (150 yards off shore), just for the challenge
of it. Joe's most cherished beach memories were of watching the dancigg
competitions at El Patio, the establishment where teenagers dominated.
Nellie, too loved outings to American Beach with equal passion. She
clung to flashbacks from her husband, his siblings and friends as they
recounted summer weekends spent on American Beach. Joe's stories
always began with the words, "American Beach, --Our Beach."
