Local State And National NAACP Offices To Investigate
Racism At Jacksonville Fire And Rescue Department
Jason Renard Harper
Two Duval County men are in custody and two are
being sought in connection with an inmate counterfeit
check ring. A 10-month multi-agency investigation
led to charges of organized fraud filed against the four.
The investigation included members of the St. Johns
County Sheriffs Office, the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, Attorney General Charlie Crist's
Office of the Statewide Prosecution, and the U.S.
The suspects in custody are identified as Henry
Oliver McKinnon III, 21; and Allen Russell
DeVaughn, 26. The two suspects being sought are
identified as Dante Karyn Sumlar, 28; and Jason
Renard Harper, 30. All of the suspects are from Duval
The investigation has revealed that beginning last
October the suspects had deposited "certified cashiers"
checks into their inmate commissary accounts at
Sheriffs Offices in Duval, Clay, St. Johns, Nassau, and
These checks were later determined,to be counter-
feit. The suspects were able to get fraudulent checks
into accounts set up for inmates to pay attorney fees
and other expenses while they were in jail.
They would then have others withdraw the money
with the inmates' permission before -the checks
cleared. The investigation revealed that the four sus-
pects had attempted to obtain over $150,000 by cash-
ing the counterfeit checks.
McKinnon, who is also charged with grand theft
over $20,000, is being held in the Duval County Jail.
DeVaughn is being held in the Department of
Corrections on Clay County charges. Sumlar and
Harper are being sought on an arrest warrant for the
organized fraud charges that carries a $500,000 bond

Working Together To Bring Back Our Inner Cities
Marc H. Morial
President and CEO of the National Urban League
A new breed of urban may-
ors appears to be bringing a
new attitude and approach to
revitalizing ailing inner cities
and making the African-
American community a bigger
player in that process.
They're building upon the
foundations laid to help
minorities to gain education-
al,economic and political
power via affirmative action,
the Civil Rights Act and the
Voting Rights act -- and push-
ing the envelope with innova-
tive ideas and assertiveness.
The National Urban
League's 2006 conference last
month featured a panel discus-
sion regarding revitalization of
the nation's inner cities. The
session featured Los Angeles
Mayor Antonio R.
Villaraigosa, Baton Rouge
Mayor Melvin "Kip" Holden
and Buffalo Mayor Byron
Brown, three mayors from
very different cities in very dif-
ferent regions of the country.
Regardless, they've all got one
mission in mind to resurrect
our ailing inner cities.
"We vote. We pay 'taxes.
We are part of the economy -
of the economic, political and
social fabric of the cities. As
such, we expect to be a part of
the building and rebuilding
process from beginning to end
- from the planning boards to
completion," said moderator
John W. Mack, former presi-
dent and CEO of the Los
Angeles Urban League and
current president of the Los
Angeles Police Commission.
Essential to the urban
renewal process must be a
commitment to collaboration
or as Villaraigosa phrased it --
polling our strengths and not
dividing our power.
"I'm here to say that we
need to get together. I'm here
to say we need to stay together.
We need to lead together. We
need to engage the fight on
behalf of all disadvantaged
families struggling in America
today," said Villaraigosa, who
rode a wave of multicultural
support a broad coalition of
blacks; Latinos, Asians and
whites to become the city's
first Latino mayor in 133
Getting a strong public
education these days is a seri-
ous challenge for inner-city
minorities in Los Angeles,
where nearly 60 percent of
African- Americans drop out
of school. That is why reform-
ing the Los Angeles Unified
School District is his adminis-
tration's top priority.
"There may not a governor
blocking the schoolhouse door.
We may not see the ranks of
the National Guard lining the
streets in riot gear. But the bar-
riers to opportunity today are
every bit as insidious as they
were in Birmingham or
Montgomery or Central High
School in Little Rock. Ark., u

1957," he said. "We can't
widen the circle or increase
minority participation in the
economic life of our cities or
deliver the promise of opportu-
nity, if we don't stand up and
address the failure of our pub-
lic schools in cities across the
This new breed of urban
mayor is also trying to increase
minority participation in eco-
nomic development by lending
more transparency to the city
contracting process. For years,
the city of Baton Rouge, La.,
relied on the good-ole-boy net-
work to get things done. That
was until 2005, when Mayor
Melvin "Kip" Holden took
Holden made fixes to the
way contracts are granted,
requiring many more to be
approved by city council
than in the past. The state's
Association of General
Contractors, which had been
long opposed to efforts to send
more business to minority
firms, finally conceded. They
realized that by not opening up
the process to more minority
firms in the area that would
mean losing business to com-
panies outside the region.
The city has also put in
place a banker's roundtable to
pressure banks to pool their
resources to fund minority
businesses and is working with
local universities and high
schools to target and recruit
promising minority engineer-
ing students. Opening up the
realm of opportunities to all
just made sense to Holden.

Under the leadership of
Mayor Byron Brown, the city
of Buffalo has substantially
increased its permit activity
and has $3 billion in projects in
the pipeline. Brown has
reached out to local business
through local CEO roundta-
bles and to state lawmakers to

It makes sense that African
Americans should play a
major role in taking back our
inner cities. We must, as St.
Louis businessman Michael V.
Roberts said, get out of the
suburbs and mine economic
opportunities under our own
nose. We must make our
neighborhoods symbols of
pride and commerce not
despair and poverty.

"There's Always Something

A Meet and Greet the Author Event
On a lovely Saturday afternoon recently at their
American Beach oceanfront home Michael Phelts
and his lovely wife and author Mrs. Marsha Dean
Phelts hosted the First Coast literary community and
friend's enjoyment at a lively and artful Book
Signing for one of their own, author Annette
McCullough Myers. Ms. Myers, a highly respected
member of a long established Fernandina Beach
fishing and shrimping family, has devoted a half-
century of her life as community servant and leader.
."For ten years she ably served as President of the
American Beach Property Owners' Association, Inc.
Now she has written a book, The Shrinking Sands of
an African American Beach, that describes changing
times states fellow author Mrs. Marsha Dean
Born n Amelia Island and having lived on
American Beach in "Miss Martha's Coquina
Hideaway" since she and her husband, Captain
Elmo Myers, purchased this graceful manor in 1960
and where fifty years ago, the summer of 1956 they
spent their honeymoon in this home, Mrs. Myers
knows her subject.. Since Captain Myers' death and
with diligence she has seen to it that this magnificent
American Beach indigenous landmark, built on a
secluded one-acre wooded plot, has earned its right-
ful listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
With this illustrious background, "Michael and I
were personally honored to have others hear
Annette's account of first hand this monumental cel-
ebration ofAmerican Beach. The Shrinking Sands of

were together recently, for their annual picnic at the
Riverview Club House. Now you might think' that
the class meets only annually. Well, that the farthest
from the truth. "We meet monthly at the Bradham-
Brooks Library, we have birthday bashes ,and':of
S course we have our annual picnic. We do keep
busy," states class president, James Tippins. They
enjoy wonderful cuisine also!
Our thanks to Mrs. Ora Jones McQueen. the
Class reporter for inviting us to be, a part of a fun-
filled afternoon. Being a Blue Devil myself, I was
feeling real great being surrounded by the 'sea' of
blue and white.

Tiffany Price Emerges From Foster Care
System After Losing Her Entire Family
And Inks Record, Movie Deal With Spinks Music
New York, NY -- Tiffany Price of Newark, NJ is an incredible business woman, an awe inspiring ASCAP songwriter, and mesmerizing singer
whose life story is being made into a direct to DVD film executive produced by
Gerard Spinks, CEO of The Spinks Music Group and Tiffany Price.
The pain in my heart was too unbearable to live with
When Tiffany Price was a child she lost the most precious gift anyone could dream
of losing -- her mother, her father, and her brothers and sisters. At the age of 10, she
watched her home get burned to the ground and shortly thereafter was taken and
placed in the foster care system.
She was scared, frightened, alone, sad, and simply missed her family. Fighting
feelings of despair and anxiety she would turn inward to her God given talents to write
songs and sing.
Singing would become her soul polisher, her faith, her ambition, her love, her
drive, and her passion. She would learn to express her pain, sorrow, joy, and love
-. through her writing and her music.
Tiffany Price, as a teenager, had to also cope with the loss of her childhood best
friend. She became so devastated and depressed from all the loss, that she considered,
taking her own life. "The pain in my heart was too unbearable to live with," Price says.

WARREN, N.J. -- Virgin Mobile USA,. in partnership with Warner Music Group, today announced the latest artist in.the company's popular
First Dibs ringtone lineup -- Bad Boy's new R&B/pop sensation, Cassie. This First Dibs
offer runs from August 17th September 21st.
Virgin Mobile is the only wireless service in the U.S. offering its customers access to
exclusive a cappella and instrumental ringtone versions of five of Cassie's hottest tracks off

single burning up the R&B charts. Virgin Mobile's four million customers also have the

opportunity to bring her songs to a new channel. In a recent interview with Virgin Mobile,
Cassie noted the huge role the Internet and mobile phones have played in her fast rise.

them even more of what they want." v
R&B singer Cassie got her first taste of the music industry at 16 when she hadthe will be available
opportunity to speak with the producer Rockwilder, a meeting that inspired her to take forf Book Signings
formal voice lessons. This decision paid off nicely later on, when, after she'd graduated on Saturday,
from high school and was working on her modeling career in New York, she became September 2, 2006
acquainted with producer Ryan Leslie. at Books Plus,
He encouraged her to pursue music more seriously, and in January 2005, Cassie's 107 Center Street
mother's request for a song provided the impetus to go into the studio with Leslie and in Historic
record one. Tommy Mottola heard Cassie's work and signed her to a management deal, Downtown
and with Leslie as her producer, the young singer joined P. Diddy's Bad Boy Fernandina Beach
Entertainment in 2006. That same year, her self-titled debut album was released. (902-261-0303)

Let's Stop Hating The Problems We Are Facing That Ari
By Shirley Williams
Stopping the violence
Let's stop hating and hurting. Let's start helping and healing.
Let's all try to get to heaven whether or not you believe in it!
We need to teach our children from a very early age to love and respect themselves,
morals, and principles. Education is important Even If" it's self-educated. I think murder
starts with self-hatred except in rare cases of imminent danger. We need to stop judging peo-
ple for the way they look, what they wear, how they talk and how they act. It's like other
people need our approval to be real without offending someone. We need to enforce in them
discipline. The system needs to give back the power for parents to discipline. Jacksonville's
biggest problems are lack of resources, especially for the low-income black neighborhoods.
We don't offer the same service as our counter communities. We need more free recreation-
al activities for our youth and young adults. Something the people are actually going to be
interested in. Do surveys. We need to be more persistent in our dedication as far as finding
more constructive entertainment and or activities for our youth. We need to teach more love
and that love is not about the opposite sex or materialistic possessions. We need to let it be
kn6wn the ramifications of out actions when we do wrong or bad things in life. We have to
let our black neighbors and friends know that we "do" care about them as an individual and
care about what happens to them too. We must teach that we are all a part of one race that
is the Human Race first. We need to learn how to correctly confront our adversaries and
dealing with our differences. We need to recognize that life is so precious and makes others
aware of this fact and that all life is and we should never take it for granted. We need to
advocate more and have our most at risk youth make a pledge to avoid trouble because it's
not worth the consequences
The Problems We Are Facing That Are Causing
The Murders In Jacksonville: What Can
Be Done To Stop Murders In Jacksonville
By Pamela Fuller
The problems we are facing here in Jacksonville come from various divisions of life.
There are basic issues that need to be confronted. We need to start with our family structure.
Families need to grasp life and bond. Families are very fragile now. Families are missing
values that were taught from our grandparents. Families need to pray and when issues
evolve we need to confront issues amongst family. We need to stop making excuses to call
Juvenile Detention, Family Services, and Correctional Institutions to deal with our internal
problems. Families need to set morals, stick by them, and learn from our history. We need
to correct ourselves. We need to teach pride and values. Values need to be taught at home,
school, and church.
Some how the foundation has been totally demolished. To many excuses have been
made. We are now blaming our issues on the world. We just need to stop making excuses.
We all know what's right and what's wrong. We need to gasp life and prevail.
When foundation, values and morals are lost in our families then it tinkles down to our
communities, churches, school, and life. Its like raising children. If you don't teach founda-
tion of God then how are we supposed to know? God has been left out of the total structure
of life. His spirit is necessary in families. He is what discipline is all about.
If you don't teach morals, how is it supposed to be taught? By outsiders, friends, televi-
sion, books magazines etc. If you don't teach foundation all you will have bottom line are a
bunch of followers just grasping on leftovers, forgetting the main course of life. We have to
have purpose, quality, pride, and distinction. We need leaders to stand.
My conclusion to the issues here in Jacksonville is to basically stop making our lives
broadband. Parents need to wake up. Love our children; get involved in school homework,
and activities. We need to place family values back into our families teach children to
respect one another. Respect their parents and teachers. And mainly respect themselves.
What Can Be Done To Stop The Murders In Jacksonville?
By Angela Wiggins
The problems we are facing are poverty due to unemployment, leading to anger, depres-
sion, and lack of morals. All this leads to self-depreciation, feelings ofworthlessness and no
regards for life or the lives of others, which ends up in murder, or some other act of vio-
lence. To stop these horrific actions, each issue needs to be addressed fully because some-
where, somehow we as a vIhole people (all nationalities) became too comfortable/ familiar
with daily tragedies, drive-by shootings, murdered children, unsolved crime cases and the
sad list goes on. We need better education in our schools so that employment opportunities
aren't limited. Community workshops to teach computer literacy because the new immigra-
tion laws will be snatching jobs away from the incapable, giving them to non-English speak-

Causing The Murders In Jacksonville
By Mr. Dakarai K. Wilcox
The only way to regain control in our city is to focus on the problems when they fist
begin. In other words we must learn to put out the fire before it spreads; however, you must
know you must know there is a fire in order to put it out.
Too many of our youth have fell victim to it's not what you do but how you do it. Because
we've allowed those who we know as the youth to believe that statement the main thing is.
How do I rob a bank? How do I get away with murder? How do I sale drugs without getting
caught? Basically its how do I get M.P.R (money, power, respect)?
We can only point the finger at the pointer. People are talking about how we need bigger
schools, churches, highways and new county jails and a new courthouse. The focus should-
n't be about what or how it should be but why. The only way to beat a cross is to double cross.
In order to stop the violence we must force our youth to double cross their thoughts. Make
them ask themselves why. Why am I doing what I'm doing?
The average human that question their thoughts usually abandon that thought. As a man
thinketh so he is. Teach the world why. Preach the world why. Force our youth to think about
their choices. In other words teach our youth focus and your killing will decrease. Remember
nothing happens over night.
Even God almighty didn't create everything in one night. If we teach our youth how to
focus' at home then it will follow them in school, church and etc. Teaching our youth to focus
teaches them how to think about why they're about to do something they might regret. Teach

Both girls radiate grace,

They were such a

Stores and others.
Russell's TV work
includes guest appear-
ances on "ER," "Eve,"
"The District" and more.
Russell also sings.
Both girls. are so
friendly and down to
earth; they feel like fam-

them long enough.
Obviously, Chelsea is the
mature one but she has
style and class to match.

OutKast Goes Idlewild With New Movie And Album
Running Time: 120 min.
Release Date: August 25th,
MPAA Rating: R for violence,
sexuality, nudity and language.
Wilmington, North Carolina
The story of the loves and
ambitions of two struggling per-
formers is told through intricate
musical numbers and vibrantly
choreographed dance sequences
in Idlewild, an original musical
starring multi-platinum and
multi-Grammy winning OutKast
members Andre Benjamin
(Andre 3000) and Antwan Andre
Patton (Big Boi). It is set against
the backdrop of a 1930s southern
speakeasy, Percival (Benjamin),
a shy piano player, and Rooster
(Patton), the club's showy lead
performer and manager, struggle
to keep their dreams alive.
Idlewild synthesizes drama,
music, cinema and style to bring
the tale, of struggling singers to
life. It is the feature film-direct-
ing debut for Bryan Barber, the
award-winning director and
longtime OutKast music video
collaborator, and includes dance
sequences choreographed by leg-
endary performer and three-time
Tony Winner Hinton Battle. The
release of the movie has been
postponed numerous times over
the past year.
The all-star cast is a roster of
some of the most notable per-
formers in film and music today.
Cast members include Ving
Terrance Howard (Hustle &
Flow), newcomer Paula Patton,
Faizon Love (Elf), Malinda
Williams ("Soul Food"), -leg-
endary recording artist Patti
LaBelle (On the One), singer
Macy Gray (Training Day), Tony.
Award winner Ben Vereen (Why.
Do Fools Fall In Love) and
Oscar nominee and Emmy
winner Cicely Tyson (Fried
The soundtrack includes new
songs from OutKast's forthcom-
ing album, which is also titled
Idlewild. Released on August 21,
it features guest appearances
from Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg,
Sleepy Brown and Macy Gray,
Speaking to Billboard,
Benjamin said that making of the
album was hard work.
"This is probably the first
musical that didn't have the
music done before it was shot,"
Benjamin "That has been the
biggest lesson I've learned in this
whole thing. Next time, we'll do
the music first."
Rumors have been swirling
for the past several months on
the Internet that the multi-talent-
ed duo were on the verge of
breaking up their musical act.
Both Benjamin and Patton deny
the possibility of a rift.
"Everything is still tight,"
said Benjamin, "most definitely."
Patton agrees with Benjamin.
"Us, as far as individuals, the
brotherhood we have, we had the
brainchild Outkast," he says."We
made that idea, and that principle
has never left us. We created this,
and nothing music or movies do
can break this up."
"That's my dog, for life."
