called by a store customer
who had entered the store and
had observed that the clerk
was not present. When offi-

victim laying on her back in
the storeroom of the store.
She had severe head trauma
and both eyes were swollen

China Destroys Satellite
China successfully carried out its first test of an antisatellite
weapon last week, signaling its resolve to play a major role in mil-
itary space activities and bringing expressions of concern from
Washington and other capitals. At the left is a launch vehicle which
carried a U.S. spy satellite into space in 1995. The recent test sug-
gests that China could strike U. S. spy satellites, as well as commer-
cial satellites. Only the U. S. and the Soviet Union have previous-
ly destroyed spacecraft in antisatellite tests. The United States'
most recent test was in the mid-1980s.

Nine Years Old in Numbers Only

Semaj Booker is nine-years-old and now lives in
Lakewood, Washington after living in the Dallas, Texas
area. He had advised his mother that he dislikes his new
neighborhood and is afraid of a sex offender who lives near-
by. So, apparently familiar with Southwest Airlines which is
home-based in Dallas, he managed to board two flights from
Seattle to as far as San Antonio, Texas. His mother said that

her son is missing his father and needs a male figure in his life. In the interim, she is sending
her son to her sister in Illinois while she continues her effort to move back to Dallas.
Semaj apparently is a fast learner. He was able to steal a car, drive it in his effort to get away
and board two airline flights, without an adult present. Help him make good use of his quick

approached Crawford in an
effort to rob him of his

them and in doing so, pushed
one of the suspects and was

appears did not know
Crawford, who lives in
Macclenny but had stopped at
the Washington Heights
Grocery Store.
The two have been charged
with armed robbery with a
deadly weapon and murder.

News In Brief

Tom Joyner Called On Churches to
Help HBCUs
Tom Joyner called on Black churches to
donate their Sunday, January 14, 2007 collec-
tions to help rebuild the three major Black
New Orleans colleges. The three schools are
Dilliard University, Southern University and Xavier
University. The three HBCU's are still recovering from the
damages caused by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

Medicare Deadline Extended for Some
About a quarter million Medicare recipients are still able
to sign up for prescription drug benefits. It is reported that
about 280,000 beneficiaries who enrolled online between
November 15 and December 27, 2006 have until February
15 to sign up, according to Herb Kuhn of the Center for
Medicare & Medicaid Services. The extension was granted,
said the agency, because about a quarter of a million people
did not receive the advance information on plan changes in
time to make an enrollment decision. Because of processing
and information distribution problems, some states had
already extended their sign-up deadlines.

Driver Gets Life for Human
Smuggling Deaths

Thursday for his role in the deadliest
human smuggling attempt in the United
STyrone Williams, 36, was convicted
last month of 58 counts of conspiracy
and harboring and transporting immi-
Williams was the driver in a human
smuggling attempt that ended up with 19 illegal immigrants
being crammed in a sweltering tractor-trailer.
The jury deliberated for more than five days before decid-
ing to send Williams to prison without the possibility of parole
for each of the immigrants. The immigrants died from dehy-
dration, overheating and suffocation in the truck Williams was
driving in 2003, from South Texas to Houston.
Williams was represented by former U. S. Representative
and State Senator, Craig Washington, of Houston who wiped
away his tears when the sentence was read since he was aware
that Williams could have been put to death. "We're grateful to
God and to the jury for saving Tyrone's life," said Washington.

Congress Must Adjust Minimum Wage for Inflation

Marc H. Morial
President and CEO of the National Urban League

Back in November, the
African-American commu-
nity, which mobilized and
turned out in record num-
bers to vote, played a major
role in achieving the trans-
formation that has taken
place on Capitol Hill. With
the 110th Congress in full
swing and its first female
House Speaker in U.S. his-
tory in command and
Blacks in prominent leader-
ship posts, it's time for law-
makers to make good on
their election-year rhetoric.
So far so good.
Under the tutelage of
Speaker of the House
Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the
U.S. House recently. passed
by an impressive 315-116
margin legislation raising
the minimum wage to
$7.25 an hour over the next
two years 1 must com-
mend Speaker Pelosi and
her cohorts for rallying the
ranks to follow through on
their election-year promis-
es. I also must applaud
them for producing a clean
bill free of concessions to
the business community in
the form of tax breaks.
As I said at the National
Urban League's annual
conference in Atlanta,
increasing the minimum
wage is a small but neces-
sary step toward narrowing

the economic divide
between minorities and
Whites in the United States.
The current federal wage of
$5.15 an hour has been in
place since 1997. When
Adjusted for inflation, it is
at its lowest level since
1955. Under the bill that
won House approval,
Americans now working
full time at minimum wage
can expect to see their earn-
ings rise nearly 47 percent
to $15,070 a year, nearly
$5,500 above the poverty
line for individuals.
Overall, 13 million
workers (10 percent of the
U.S. workforce) are expect-
ed to benefit from the wage
hike, 16 percent of them
African Americans. More
than half of states already
require employers to pay
workers an hourly wage
above the federal minimum
level. And according to a
recent Associated Press-
AOL News poll, 80 percent
of Americans surveyed
support a hike.
Our federal lawmakers
need to bring our nation's
lowest-wage earners out of
the 1950s and into the 21st
Century. These workers can
barely support themselves
let alone their children. Ten
years of inaction by
Congress has thrown more

and more Americans off the
road to economic prosperi-
ty and- into the trenches of
poverty. If we fail to
acknowledge their hard
work, we risk exhausting
their hopes of achieving the
American dream. "
Now, the pressure lies
upon the U.S. Senate to fol-
low the House's lead and
give our nation's working
poor a needed raise. And
the chamber's members
must do so without the
addition of sweeteners to
quell the concerns of small
business interests con-
vinced that a higher mini-
mum wage would imperil
their bottom line and, as a
result, increase unemploy-
ment. Such fears are
unfounded, according to
the Fiscal Policy Institute.
The group found that from
1998 to 2003 the number of
small businesses in 10
states with minimum wages
higher than the $5.15 an
hour actually grew at a
faster rate than their coun-
terparts in other states 5.4
percent compared to 4.2
percent. The institute dis-
covered similar increases in
number of employees and
payroll spent per worker.
For far too long, our
federal lawmakers have
ignored the plight of our
nation's lowest-paid
employees. In recent years,
they've spent more time
cutting breaks to the bosses
of the working poor than

the working poor. Our
national government needs
to consider the needs of
David over Goliath once in
a while.
While I am encouraged
by the House's recent
action, it should only be a
beginning. It is not enough
just to raise the wage every
decade if it doesn't keep
pace with the cost of living.
That is why I am urging
Congress, as it irons out
final details on this legisla-
tion later this year, to
include a provision index-
ing future increases to
inflation. Four states --
Florida, Washington,
Oregon and Vermont -
already employ indexing.
And according to the
Economic Policy Institute,
the cost of adjusting the
current minimum wage for
inflation over the past 10
years would have amount-
ed to just $1.33 an hour.
For such a small invest-
ment, our leaders could
have sparred millions of
American workers already
in precarious economic
positions from losing
ground in their pursuit, of
the American Dream. By
adjusting the wage for
inflation, we'll assure that
the lowest-paid employees
are afforded the same cost-
of-living increases as con-
gressional members. Why
should America's working
poor be treated any differ-

"To everything there is a season
and a time to every purpose under the
heaven. A tine to be born, and a time
to die. "-Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.
No one wants to talk about death
and funerals. Too depressing.
Unfortunately, death is a fact of life
and there simply is no way to avoid it.
For indeed there is a "time to be born
and a time to die."
You may want a traditional funer-
al service with visitation and a member
of the clergy conducting services at a
church or a funeral home. Would you
want an open or closed casket? Maybe
you want a special friend to do the
eulogy or family members to read
scripture passages or poetry. Any
favorite hymns?
First, you should shop around and
talk to a few funeral directors. Yes, let

prices for such things as casket.

can include such things as prayer
cards, thank-you notes, and guest reg-
isters-they add up quickly. Many opt
for the funeral home in their neighbor-
hood for personalized services.
Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth burial, a
cemetery plot should be purchased: if
above ground, a mausoleum crypt. If
cremation is the choice, plan disposi-
tion of the ashes. Do you want them
stored in a columbarium niche or
buried? Maybe you prefer to have your
ashes scattered?
An option some people take is to
donate organs and tissues to a medical
school. (Have a donor card and check
on requirements.)

rial service, express that wish.

Improved, Expanded Free File Program Opens im t ~a m i < *

Today for 95 Million Taxpayers

IR-2007-1, Jan. 16, 2007
WASHINGTON The Internal Revenue Service and its private-sector partners today
announced the opening of this year's Free File program with a series of improvements and
changes to help taxpayers. The free tax preparation and free electronic filing initiative begins
its fifth year with more consumer-friendly features and expanded services for Spanish-speak-
ing taxpayers.
Seventy percent of the nation's taxpayers 95 million Americans qualify for Free
File. This year, up to 20 Free File Alliance companies will participate in the program run by
the IRS and the Free File Alliance, a consortium of tax preparation software companies. The
program is available only through IRS.gov.
"The Free File program has significant changes this year that make it an even better
deal for taxpayers," said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson. "A huge part of the taxpayer
public can use these free services. Taxpayers should review the Free File offerings and see
which one works best for them."
Free File Alliance Executive Director Tim Hugo said, "This year, 95 million
Americans will be eligible to participate in a Free File program that has made dramatic
improvements for the taxpaying public. The Free File program is a public-private partnership
at its best."
A new agreement reached last month between the IRS and the Free File Alliance
means enhanced services for taxpayers this year. Among the changes and features of this
year's program:
Seventy percent of the nation's taxpayers those with an adjusted gross income of
$52,000 or less are eligible for Free File. Each company sets its own criteria for who can use
the service.
Taxpayers will be able to use Free File to request the Telephone Excise Tax Refund.
Taxpayers can either request the standard amount, which ranges from $30-$60, or the actual
amount. Some alliance members will provide free access to Form 1040EZ-T for those people
who have no legal obligation to file a tax return, but who can request the one-time telephone
excise tax refund. Some alliance members also will offer free access to Form 8913 to request
the actual amount.
Two companies will offer Free File in Spanish.
" Participants will no longer offer refund anticipation loans (RALs) and other ancillary
Some Alliance members are offering the state return for free. All Alliance mem-
bers' Web sites display whether state online tax preparation and filing services are available
and the associated fees, if any.
Taxpayers can use Free File to file a Form 4868, Application for Automatic
Extension of Time to File.
The Free File Alliance selects its own membership, and all members must meet the
IRS' high standards for security and privacy. The IRS does not endorse any Free File Alliance
company. While the IRS manages the content of the Free File pages accessible on IRS.gov, it
does not retain any taxpayer information entered on the Free File site.
More than 3.9 million taxpayers used Free File last year. Free File debuted in 2003
with nearly 2.8 million users.
Taxpayers consistently give high marks to Free File in satisfaction surveys.
According to Russell Research, a market research firm contracted by the IRS, 94 percent said
they intend to use Free File again this year, 96 percent said they found Free File very easy or
somewhat easy to use and 97 percent said they would recommend Free File to others.
Convenience, not the free cost, was the most appealing factor of Free File.
"This level of public satisfaction with Free File is just astounding," Everson said.
"This innovative program provides real value to the taxpayers. Taxpayers will find we've
made a great program even better this year."

Women continued fiom A-i
for mercy realizing his apparent intent. But before he could carry on with the sexual assault,
the victim started praying. Her prayers seemed to make the suspect more fierce and rather than
rape her, he became more vicious with his attack and continued to beat her into a state of uncon-
sciousness. When the victim reached a point of semi consciousness, she went out to her car.
According to the report, after observing of the swelling to her body, it was determined that she
had been unconscious for over two hours.
The officers observed that the driver's side of the victim's car was broken and that the car
had been ransacked. The rear door on the driver's side was ajar with various items around the
vehicle. Blood was also observed on the left rear tire, as well as several clumps of hair on the
ground near the vehicle. A concrete block was found near the rear of the vehicle that was appar-
ently used to break the driver's side window. There were shoe prints outside of the residence
indicating that someone had been looking inside the window.
In both cases, the suspect wore a ski mask to hide his face, He also wore all dark clothing
and there was nothing that the women were able to witness that would help them identify the
suspect's race. One of the ladies said that she would remember his voice as he made comments
about her praying.
In each case, an extensive canvass was made of the area in an effort to obtain, any suspect
information, with negative results. In each case, there were no eye-witness to these acts of vio-
lence. It is believed that the suspect has a vehicle because neighbors of the last victim heard
screeching of wheels late in the night in their quiet neighborhood.
The victim's family is seeking assistance in locating this attacker. Because the second vic-
tim was attacked at her home, her family has moved her away to another town and reminding
all members of the community to keep their homes as secure as possible at all times.

What does the spotted owl have to do with me?
By Paul Tutwiler
From time to time we have to reflect on the causes for which we fight. It seemed quite dumb
to me that individuals would place so much energy on, for example, animal rights causes. I
could only see the needs of my own community and the problems that I glare at every day.
What's with the save the whale campaign? Can't they see that families are living in squalor?
Why save the buffalo?
I cannot speak for all the animal rights groups but I can on analysis see that all animals belong
to the eco system that keep the world in balance. The buffalo whose normal migrating patterns
allowed them to graze the highlands and thereby eat the dry vegetation that now burns so freely
in the animal's absence. Those annual forest fires along with other pollutants from industry and
automobile emission emit gasses that damage the ozone layer which, in theory, lead to global
warming. Global warming affects weather patterns that, among other things, lead to hurricanes
and droughts, etc.
When we think of our individual causes let us think of them in terms of the world's eco sys-
tem. If this problem were solved, how would it affect the rest of the world's balance? What is
the root cause of a particular problem? This thought came about at a recent function when the
international businessman and former NFL Commissioner came to speak at a luncheon in
Jacksonville. He compared college age students in America to European and Asian counter-
parts. The, relatively speaking, small percentage of American college students in graduate
school predictably will place America behind the rest of the world in just a few years.
Countries with larger populations have a larger percentage of their students in graduate school
and therefore most physicians, computer techs, more biologists will be foreign born in a few
years. In order for us to compete on a global scale we must recognize this and make an imme-
diate address. Wow, I thought, we need to shore up our students to help them compete global-
ly. The next fleeting thought was that my community is so far behind the rest of the city and
the rest of the country we won't play a significant role in the world's future development. If
the majority of America is behind the rest of the world and my community is behind the rest of
America, this community is in deep trouble.
In an information age where everything from toys to weapons are computer driven we must
help developing youth get ready for the future. Parents we need to prepare our children to com-
pete by insisting that they complete......their basic education and more, if possible. We must
begin to realize that certain communities are falling further and further behind the rest of the
world and, in as much, the challenges that accompany a backwards non-developing communi-
ty will continue and drain the rest of our progressing society. When the rest of the world is
seeking graduate degrees and communities like Jacksonville's urban core has a high drop out
rate for high school students, where is our community's future compared to the rest of the
world? It's kind of like the spotted owl. It is endangered!!

The National World War II Museum to Host Anne Frank Exhibition

NE\\ ORLEANS (Januiary 8. 2000- B'Leinning Januar\ 201, 200. The National Word War II MIuseum- :
will present an exhibition that i. both profound and poignant. timely and timeless. It ilt uminates the life and .

At onl\ 15 \cars of age. Anne Frank left a great legacy\ lessons on the perils of prejudice and discrim- "
nation, the importance of tolerance and social justice. and the blessing of hope. All of this comes to life in the
exhibition Anne Frank- A History for Today. developed b\ the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and sponsored "
in North America b\ the \Anne Frank Center USA ,
The exhibition introduces visitors to the history\ of the rto World Wars and the H-olocaust from the per-"
spective of Anne Frank and her faill. The presentation contrasts personal photographs of the family many
never before seen \\ ith images of historical e ents to sho\w ho\\ the Franks and millions of other innocent peo-
ple were victimized by the rise of National Socialism and the actions of many individuals.
Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1929 and lived there with her parents Otto and Edith and her sister Margot until 1933.
Concerned about the Nazi Party's rapid rise to power and the ever-growing persecution of Jewish families and other minorities, Otto determined the
family should start a new life in Amsterdam. He established a business there, and life was fairly normal for a few years.
In May, 1940, the German Army invades Holland. Jews were forced to wear yellow Stars of David on their clothing, and conscriptions for
"work abroad" began -- the first steps toward mass deportations and the death camps. The Frank family along with four other Jews went into hid-
ing in "the Secret Annex" of the building occupied by Otto's company. Miep Gies and three other employees of the.company provided supplies and
protected their secret.
Anne and her family remained in hiding for more than two years. When they were betrayed and arrested in 1944, they were first taken to
Westerbork transit camp in the Netherlands and, from there, to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Later that year,
Anne and Margot were transferred to Bergen-Belsen, a
4 concentrationn camp in northern Germany, where they
.. died of typhus in March of 1945. Both still teenagers,
-.. they lived only seven months after their arrest. The fol-
lowing month, British soldiers liberated Bergen-Belsen.
Anne and Margot had been buried in a mass grave.

Collector Teaches Culture Through Stamps
EDISON Philately is a word F-"
few will ever come across, but for
Wanda Garbett it has become a window
to the past.

The word, which literally
means "freedom from charges," has
ensnared Garbett, but it is better known
under its unofficial title stamp collect-

Garbett collects African American stamps domestic
and international. She collects them and learns from them and
has begun showcasing her love of all things philately, so that
others may learn.
"I am trying to educate African Americans and also
non-African Americans about stamp collecting," Garbett said,
"and also about African American culture."
The Edison native has spent seven years indulging
her philatelic side ever since reading an article in Vi Services,
an African American newsletter, that urged African Americans
to take up the hobby.
Garbett, who has sat on the African American
Heritage Festival committee for 19 of its 20-year existence,.
found a desire to learn the system of stamp collecting and be
able to apply African American history and culture to it.
Her collection, 40 pieces of which are being exhibit-
ed at the 7-Monmouth Museum at Brookdale Community
College in Middletown this month, began with two towering
figures in the black community Malcolm X and the Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr.
While differing in approach, Garbett feels the two
men made large contributions to the civil rights movement and
African Americans in this country.
"I was eager to get his [Malcolm X] stamp because he
played such an important role in the African American com-
munity," Garbett said.
Since then, her collection has blossomed, and so has
Garbett. She now exhibits her collection throughout the state,
starting with a stint at the African American Museum of South
Jersey and now at the Nilson Gallery of the Monmouth
Museum at Brookdale. It is a road that she did not think she
would travel when she began seven years ago.

"I had the ideas, but I didn't know how to market my products," Garbett said.
It was Butler who showed her how to do that, but Hunter was the one who convinced
her to showcase them for everyone.
"He encouraged me to take the collection out on the road," Garbett said, "and I never
looked back."
She also thanked Avis Anderson of the Monmouth Museum for petitioning on her

educational hobbies that you can learn. Myself, my associates and stamp organizations can show

Dear Deanna!
My nephew has left for college and has completely lost his mind. W\hien he lived at home he
was quiet, mild mannered and well behaved, I hardly know him now liL.t he's ..'..,.. from

Loving Aunt (San Bernardino, CA)

Dear Aunt:
You may be i,'1.ini, in business that doesn't belong to you. Your nephew is an adult and his
parents don't have any issues with his lifestyle and maybe you should do the same. If he's
still in college, ;gettiig good grades and staying out of trouble, then he's fine. You can't
impose your expectations on him but you can caution him about the drinking and any moral
issues. In other words, accept his newfound adult hood and be there with gentle guidance.

Dear Deanna!
I have a platonic relationship with a male friend of four years but my fiance doesn't like it.
He has begun making hints that I've slept with my friend and accusing me of lying to him.
I've only known my fiance for two years and if I had to choose between the two men, I
would choose my friend. How can I convince my fiance that we're only friends and that
nothing is going on? This is becoming stressful because I love both men and want them in
my life. Help?
Sharon (San Antonio, TX)

Dear Sharon:
Your future husband is jealous of your relationship with your male friend. It's your respon-
sibility to find balance as you seek to have both relationships. Invite your husband to be part
of the friendship so he can understand and be more open minded. Also be mindful of your
platonic friendship to make sure you're not giving your fiance reasons to complain. If things
don't improve after the air is clear, you fiance has issues you certainly need to explore.

Gov. Schwarzenegger's real claim to fame was his contribution to the explosive action in his

ing, half-baked, desperate, thrill-crazed or what?
In our daily lives, we see many, many examples of the fearless and their faith. The fearless
live up to the true meaning of faith, which is daring the soul to go beyond what the eyes can see.
Faith is not rocket science, brain surgery or a library of books analyzing how to get it.
Worry looks around. Sorry looks back. Faith looks up. What's your pleasure?

Tell someone you.love about Gardisil, the first vaccine for
Shannon had been a wild teenager, running with a fast crowd. She skipped classes and
started having sex at age 16 with her first boyfriend. But Shannon got a wake-up call when her
boyfriend got arrested. Shannon got herself together, successfully graduated from high school and
attended Spelman College. Shannon was thankful she managed to avoid teenage pregnancy,
chlamydia and HIV infection. She unfortunately did not avoid being infected with human papillo-
mavirus (HPV). In fact, she didn't even know what HPV infection was.
Shannon joined about 20 million other Americans who are infected with HPV. Like
Shannon, most aren't aware of their infections and most don't even know what HPV is. HPV is a
common virus with over 100 strains. About 40 affect the genital tract and of those, only a few cause
disease. Strains 6 and 11 are considered low risk and cause about 90 percent of genital warts. Strains
16 and 18 are considered high risk and cause about 70 percent of cervical cancers. HPV is usually
transmitted through sex. Although men and women can be infected, women are usually adversely
affected. Both sexes can contract genital warts, but only women develop cervical cancer.
Cervical cancer affects 10,000 US women each year, with approximately 4000 deaths
attributed to it. African American women develop this cancer about 50 percent more often than non-
Hispanic white women.
The cervix is the opening to the uterus. It is normally about 2-3 inches wide and 2-3 inch-
es thick. It is usually closed, but when a woman is in labor, the cervix dilates and permits passage
of the baby.
Since the 1950's, the number of deaths due to cervical cancer has dropped by 74 percent.'
This drop is due to the widespread use of the PAP smear. The PAP smear is an examination of cer-
vical cells looking for precancerous changes or evidence of cervical cancer in its early stages. When
diagnosed early, almost all cervical cancers are curable. Most women, who die from cervical can-
cer, have not had routine PAP smears performed.
Within the last 20 years, the association between cervical cancer and HPV became more
apparent and screening for cervical cancer now includes both the PAP smear and HPV testing. Since
there is currently no treatment for HPV infection, researchers have focused on strategies for pre-
vention. As with other sexually transmitted diseases, abstinence and condom use have been the pri-
mary modes of prevention, but the ideal goal is vaccination.
In June 2006, a breakthrough was announced. The pharmaceutical company Merck
received FDA approval for Gardasil, the first vaccine against cervical cancer. Gardasil protects
against HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18. It is prepared from virus-like particles, not the actual virus. The
best immune response is elicited in women who have not yet been exposed to HPV, usually girls or
women who have not become sexually active. Gardasil is approved for girls and women ages 9-26,
and the Centers for Disease Control and the American College of Obstetrics/Gynecology recom-
mend immunizing girls ages 11-12. These'recommendations have contributed to some of the con-
troversy surrounding Gardasil.
Several conservative groups contend that administering the vaccine to young girls may
give implicit approval for becoming sexually active. 1 think the opposite will occur. When young
women are given information regarding the potential adverse consequences of early sexual activi-
ty and given some control over their health, they may be less likely to start having sex at a young
age. For African American girls this is especially important, because the average African American
girl becomes sexually active at approximately age 14.
Gardasil is administered in 3 doses, at 0, 2 and 6 months. It costs about $120 per injection.
The main adverse reaction has been pain at the injection site. The vaccine has shown 100 percent
protection against the development of pre-cancerous changes and genital warts caused by HPV
types 6, 11, 16 and 18. The length of time the vaccine offers protection is unknown. Thus far, the
vaccine has been effective a minimum of 4.5 years. Current studies have not been long enough for

cervical cancer to develop, but the prevention of precancerous lesions is very likely to prevent the
development of cancer.
Dr. Matthew Kohler, assistant professor of gynecologic oncology at the Medical
University of South Carolina calls this vaccine, "a phenomenal breakthrough, on the same order of
penicillin." He says, "This is stunning data. It approaches 100 percent effectiveness, with virtually
no side effects. It's a milestone in medicine."
Now back to Shannon. If I had seen Shannon before she started having sex, 1 would have
counseled her to get the vaccine. Even if she remained abstinent until marriage, she could still be
at risk for contracting HPV if her husband has HPV. Since I saw Shannon after she had already been
infected, 1 encouraged her to continue getting her PAP smears and any treatment if needed. And 1
reminded her to continue to use condoms. She still needs to protect herself against HIV, herpes and
other sexually transmitted diseases. But now I can tell Shannon to bring in her ) oiinger sister. I am
elated I can offel her the first vaccine against cervical cancer.

A Boat Docked in Jacksonville To Try For World Record

Jacksonville, FL A cool boat with a look right out of a Miami Vice movie is
anchored at the Jacksonville marina. The boat is powered by biodiesel, and its crew hopes to
break the world record for traveling around the world. The current record is 75 days. The crew
of "Earthrace" hopes to do it in 65 days. The boat is designed to cut through waves instead of
going over them. The world record attempt will begin in Barbados in early March. The
"Earthrace" crew is in Jacksonville to raise money.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Fund Grows

Obama Takes

Big First Step
With less than two years
in national politics under his
belt United States Senator
Barac Obama has taken the
first step on the path that
many hope will take him to
the White House. Obama
obviously believes that a
war-weary nation could
actually work in favor of his
Democratic candidacy.
The actual political war is
far away. The Presidential
election is slated for
November 2008. Even the
essential preliminary battle,
the Democratic primaries, is
13 months away. While set-
ting up his Presidential
Exploratory Committee on
Tuesday, Obama said he

Heart Attack

Survivors Relate

To Wake-Up Call

African-Americans who
have suffered a heart attack
consider their experience a
"wake-up call" that leads to
reevaluating priorities,
growing closer to faith and
recognizing the importance
of strong heart health behav-
iors, according to new sur-
vey findings announced by
the National Medical
Association (NMA).
While a majority of those
surveyed view their heart
attack as a second chance at
life, the results surprisingly
indicate that nearly 30 per-
cent of African-Americans

would formally announce
his intention to run for the
US presidency.
The 45-year-old Obama's
announcement ends months,

of speculation if the African-
American Senator would
actually take the plunge. His
announcement also sent rip-
ples of excitement within the
Democratic Party, which is

state they are not doing
everything they can to avoid
another heart attack. In fact,
according to the survey find-
ings, 27 percent of African-
Americans do not take their
heart medications exactly as
prescribed by their physi-
cians after their heart attack.
Approximately half of
the heart attack survivor's
surveyed report there is not
enough information avail-
able about preventing future
heart attacks or what to do
after having one. Many of
those polled feel that speak-
ing to another heart attack
survivor could provide much
needed information. Overall,
the survey finds that while
African-American heart
attack survivors look at their
heart attack as a wake-up
call, they lack information to
prevent a second incident.

Presidential hopefuls, given
that the Republicans will be
going into the election facing
a public with a negative view
of the Iraq war which has
also been steadily sapping
President Bush's ratings.
Obama opposes the war
in Iraq and thus could pro-
vide an alternative for those
many Democrats who have
expressed strong concern
about Clinton's support of
the war effort. In addition,
Obama, would almost sure-
ly cut deeply into Clinton's
own political base since
black voters could be partic-
ularly significant since the
Democratic Party's decision
to move the South Carolina
primary to the front of the
2008 presidential nominat-
ing process.

"When we look at the
percentage of the African-
American population that
suffer heart attacks and the
resulting death rate, when
compared to other ethnic
groups, we see a clear dis-
parity which illustrates a
significant need for educa-
tion and support initiatives
for heart health within our
community," stated Albert
W. Morris, Jr., M.D., presi-
dent of the NMA.
"The National Medical
Assn. through the 'Heartfelt

Verizon Leads Corporate

Donations With $1 Million

for Dr. King's Memorial Fund

Significant gifts from three Health insur-
ance provider Cigna Corp., Shell Oil Co.
and the Verizon Foundatjon were announced
this week. These contributions will bring the
fund to build a memorial to Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. to over $75 million more
than three-quarters of the way to the pro-
ject's $100 million goal.
Formal announcements were planned for
the holiday honoring King by Verizon in
Washington and by Cigna in Philadelphia.
Commenting on the new contributions,

prominent civil rights leaders, celebrities
and politicians present. The memorial is
scheduled to open in the spring of 2008 and
will be the first monument for a civilian and
Black leader on the National Mall.
Verizon's gift is directed toward under-
writing educational programs at the memor-
ial's visitors center, which will provide high-
tech interactive displays, streaming video
and an Internet site with lessons about
King's core values of equality, justice and
community building, said Patrick Gaston,

First Minimum Wage Census Data: More Black

Increase in Ten Years Women Without Husbands

Passed by Democrats
The House voted this week to raise the federal minimum
wage for the first time in a decade. The new minimum rate
was increased to $7.25 an hour. For an annual income of just
over $15,000. The new Democratic majority marched
briskly through their 100-hour agenda at the dawn of a new
Congress. Elated Democrats stood and cheered as the final
vote -- 315-116 -- was announced.
"For 10 years the lowest-paid Americans have been
frozen out," said Rep. George Miller of California, berating
Republicans who had refused for years to allow a vote on a
stand-alone minimum wage increase.
"The little guy is not going to be forgotten any longer,"
said Rep. Bill Pascrell, whose district includes gritty
Patterson, N.J. He estimated the increase would mean an
additional $4,400 a year for a family of three.
As expected, the White House issued a statement of
opposition to the legislation as drafted. It called for the
increase to be accompanied by "tax and regulatory relief to
help small businesses stay competitive and to help the econ-
omy keep growing."

Number Increases
From 35% to 51%
Since 1950 Data

For probably the first
time, more American
woman are living without a
husband than with one, and
Black women are more like-
ly than anyone to be living
alone, according to a New
York Times analysis of cen-
sus results released Tuesday.
In 2005, 51% of women

said they were living without
a husband, up from 35% in
1950 and 49% in 2000. On
the other side of the coin,
married couples became a
minority of all American
households for the first time
in 2005. The newspaper says
these new demographics
could shape social and work-
place policies, including the
way government and
employers provide benefits.
Black women are least
likely to be married. Only

about 30 percent of Black
women are living with a
husband, according to the
Census Bureau. That com-
pares to 55 percent, of non-
Hispanic White women who
are with husbands.
"For better or worse,
women are less dependent
on men or the institution of
marriage," said Dr. William
H. Frey, a demographer with
the Brookings Institution, a
Washington research group.
"Younger women under-

stand this better, and are
preparing to live longer parts
of their lives alone or with
non-married partners," he
said. "For many older
boomer and senior women,
the institution of marriage
did not hold the promise
they might have hoped for,
growing up in an 'Ozzie and
Harriet' era."
Other factors leading to
the trend also include the
fact that women are marry-
ing later; they are living
longer as widows and after a
divorce; and they are more
likely than men to delay
remarriage, analysts con-

Adopt a Manatee As A Unique Valentines Gift!
Carolyn Krentz and her husband Andrew have created their own special tradition on Valentine's Day. For the past few
years, the Krentzes from Fort Myers, Florida, have adopted a playful eighteen hundred pound manatee by the name of
"Brutus" from Save the Manatee Club's Blue Spring adoption program.
"Flowers and chocolates just can't compare to a big, loveable manatee," said Carolyn. "My husband and I agree that we
don't need a special day of the year to celebrate our love, as every day is Valentine's Day for us. Instead, we'd rather spend
our money showing the manatees how much we love them!" Dr M artin Lur

Peyton Manning has done nearly everything a quarter-

Indianapolis Colts as playoff underachievers.
Colts fans remember the game like it was
yesterday. Former New England Patriots corner-

Muhammad Ali Turns 65

With Grace of a Champion
He turns 65 years old today, a senior citizen eligible for
Social Security and Medicare who long ago eluded a lot of
punches and probably took a few too many.
But Muhammad Ali isn't retired. The great Icons can
never quit. They live on in our hearts and minds and our
memories that create the boundaries of who they were and
what they meant to us.
Ali lives quietly these days in Arizona, his home for
about the last four months. Parkinson's has silenced him in a
way that no fighter ever could.
But all around him the Ali industry continues with books
and classic films, including one Ali Rap that makes it
sound as if his lines were poetry before they became the rap
industry's lyrics. There are even Ali-inspired snacks, which
will hit store shelves today with labels Rumble and
Shuffle that once identified him.

Four Top Florida Players On

award-winning members of the 2006 SBN Sports Black
College All-American (BCAA) Team, to be honored during

Atlanta, Georgia.
Four of the players are from Florida schools. They
include two players from Bethune-Cookman. Wide Receiver
Eric Weems is a 5-9, 1791b. Senior from Ormand Beach,
Florida and defensive back Bobbie Williams a 6-0, 1901b.
Junior from Miami.
Offensive Lineman Dan Parish from Florida A&M, a 6-7

Travarous Bain from Hampton University, a 6-0, 1751b..
Senior from Miami were also named to the elite team.
The Hampton University Pirates lead the way with five
players selected as members of the 2006 SBN Sports Black

University quarterback Stadford Brown was named "SBN
Sports Doug Williams Offensive Player of the Year,"
Hampton University linebacker Justin Durant was named
"SBN Sports Mel Blount Defensive Player of the Year" and

RCA Dome this year and a single home loss last year. It's
more than home field advantage, it's a big advantage!
The other big advantage is WR Marvin Harrison who has
''. hit his stride this year as arguably the best
receiver in the NFL!
^ The next big advantage is the rebirth of the
., -. Colts defense. The return of safety Bobby
S1 Sanders who was injured for the majority of the
i' season has been impressive. Sanders has made
13 tackles and an interception. A defense that
gave up 375 yards rushing against Jacksonville
in early December has allowed 127 in two play-
off games. Has Sanders been the difference?
Any questions about the Colts defense were
answered last week when the Colts defense held
Harrison the Ravens to a pair of field.goals.
With Manning and Harrison having the
friendly atmosphere of the dome to work in, look for the
Colts to put up serious points,
Peyton Manning does not want to be a Dan Marino!

Reese New Giants GM

3rd Black in NFL History
Jerry Reese, who has been with the Giants since
1994 in various capacities and was most recently the team's
director of player of personnel, is the new General manager.
Reese only the third black GM in NFL history says it was
fitting the New York Giants tapped him for the job on the
holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
"Not to sound cliched, but I really feel like it's my time to
carry the torch," Reese said Tuesday as the team formally
introduced him a day after he was picked. He is the third
black general manager in NFL history.
"Many people went before me who suffered through this
process and now it's my time. I'm looking forward to this
challenge. It's my time to keep this dream alive. It's very
important to me and I don't take it lightly."
Reese succeeds Ernie Accorsi, who is retiring after nine
seasons with the team.

Koetter Joins Jags With

Checkered Track Record
Dirk Koetter joins the Jaguars as offensive coordinator at
the right time if he is looking for opportunity.
The Jaguars' passing game has been almost non-existent
ranking 24th in the NFL this season as the team suffered
from injuries to Leftwich. The total offense numbers looked
much brighter as the Jags finished 10th in the league but
were left out of the playoff party.
Koetter takes the offensive reigns when no one even
knows who the starting quarterback or go-to receiver will be
next season.
Koetter spent the last six years with the Arizona Sun
Devils, compiling a 40-33 record. His teams averaged near-
ly 30 points per game in that span.
In 2005, Arizona State was second in the nation in total
offense and third in passing yards. The Sun Devils stumbled

November, but stayed to coach a bowl game loss to Hawaii
and finished with a 7-6 record.
Koetter. who will be the third offensive coordinator in
five years replaces Carl Smith, who was one of five assis-
tants fired last week after the Jaguars dropped three in a row
to end the season with an 8-8 record. and missed the playoffs
for the sixth time in seven years
The Jaguars also named Joe DeCamillis as Special Teams
Coordinator this week. DeCamillis directed the special

John Shoemaker Back

As Jax Suns Announce

Coaching Staff for 2007

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced the on-field coach-
ing staff for the 2007 .edition of the Jacksonville Suns. John
Shoemaker will return for his third consecutive season, and
fourth overall, as the Suns manager, Danny Darwin returns
for his second season as Suns Pitching Coach and Luis
Salazar will join the team as hitting coach. Yosuke "Possum"
Nakajima will join the Suns as the team's athletic trainer in
2007. John Shoemaker has quickly become one of the most
fan-friendly and popular managers in Suns history and can
easily be mentioned in the same breath as the legendary Ben
Geraghty as one of Jacksonville's all-time greats. He origi-
nally managed the team to a Southern League co-champi-
onship in 2001 while being named Manager of the Year. He
returned to Jacksonville in 2005, taking the Suns to the title

Shoemaker has managed the team
to a combined 254-172 record

once again while earning Minor League Team of the Year
honors as well. In 2006, "Shoe's" team once again made the
playoffs, tying a team record with 86 regular season wins
and earning his second Southern League Manager of the
Year honors. He also achieved a career milestone in 2006,
winning his 1,000th game as a manager. Shoemaker, 50,
served as the Dodgers' assistant minor league field coordina-
tor in 2004 and managed the team's Class AAA affiliate in
Las Vegas in 2003. He has worked in the Dodgers' minor
leagues for 29 years, as a player, manager and defensive
instructor. In his 16 seasons as a minor league manager,
Shoemaker has posted a 1020-993 (.507) record and has won
three league championships while reaching five league finals
giving him the highest career winning percentage of "any
Jacksonville skipper in the SL era. The Vero Beach, Fla. res-
ident played baseball and basketball at Miami (Ohio)
University and was drafted in the sixth round of the 1978
NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls. Danny Darwin returns to
the Suns as pitching coach for the upcoming season. Darwin,
51, spent 21 years as a big league pitcher, appearing in 716
games, which ranks 62nd on the all-time Major League list.
He led the National League with a 2.21 ERA in 1990 when
he went 11-4 for the Houston Astros. Darwin won a career-
high 15 games while pitching for Boston in 1993 and fin-
ished his career with a 171-182 record. Luis Salazar will
enter his first season with the Suns in 2007. A 13-year Major
League veteran, Salazar spent the last two seasons as the
manager of the Vero Beach Dodgers (Single-A Advanced) of
the Florida State League. Prior to his stint in Vero Beach, he
spent three seasons at the helm of the Gulf Coast League
Dodgers. An infielder/outfielder in the majors, Salazar spent
time with the San Diego Padres, Chicago \\ lite Sox, Detroit
Tigers and Chicago Cubs. He played every position except
catcher during his big-league career. He was a member of the
National League Champion San Diego Padres in 1984 and
the NL Eastern Division Champion Chicago Cubs team in
"The Dodgers have put together an incredible staff for
this year's team," said Suns President Peter Bragan, Jr. "Shoe
is the best manager the Suns have ever had, both on the field
and off, and having Danny Darwin back and adding Luis
Salazar to work with him give me a lot to look forward to
this season. With this staff, I feel confident that we can make
it back to the top of the Southern League. The Jacksonville
Suns, the Double-A Southern League affiliate of the Los
Angeles Dodgers, open the 2007 Southern League season
April 5 vs. the Tennessee Smokies. Season tickets, sponsor-
ships and group tickets for the Suns' 70-game regular season
are currently on sale.







I A '

sssHHH! Police Report

U f Nif MN i! i IN iIt"irs

(Aries March 21st thru
April 19th) Your inde-
pendent streak's
a mile wide as
the week
begins, so you'll
want to be exploring your
options in various (and
maybe every) area. Just be
sensitive about how it
might come across. On
Wed. and Thur., it's impor-
tant to strive to be more
grounded. Count those
blessings and live in the
moment. Whether you're
looking for a partner of
some sort or just somebody
who 'gets it,' this weekend
is a good time to scout.
Talk to anyone and every-
one -- you never know. On
Sunday, your best bet is to
lay low and take it easy.
(Taurus- April 20th thru
May 20th) You're in a
mode as the
week begins,
and it's a very
fruitful state of mind for
gaining a better under-
standing of yourself and
others. Deepening connec-
tions is more than possible
now. On Wed. and Thur.,
you're rock-solid -- the
kind of person that friends
turn to and workplaces
treasure. Moreover, plans
you make now are golden.
Things may seem weird
this weekend; will you let
it throw you off, or can you
adjust and enjoy it with a
sense of humor? And on
Sunday, you just might be
a little weird yourself. It's a
good thing.
(Gemini May 21st thru
June 21st) It's not like you
to climb up on a
soapbox and
deliver a lecture;
keep it that way
as the week begins. There's
a more interesting way to
Wednesday and Thursday,
a relationship -- work, pla-
tonic, romantic -- may be a
bit difficult. Think of it as
an opportunity to bring an
issue out of the closet and
deal with it at last. Both
networking and things that
feed your brain are favored
this weekend; if you can
combine the two (a profes-
sional seminar, maybe, or a
fabulous cultural event),
even better. On Sunday,
watch out for a minor mis-
(Cancer June 22nd
thru July 22nd) Expect a
little weird
energy with
coworkers or a
partner as the
week begins. You may
need to take care of some-
thing someone else said
they'd do. Wednesday and
Thursday promise positive
energy and improvements
across the board -- if you
keep those eyes and ears
open. Be responsive, and
be clear. This weekend,
get on the same page as a
pertinent party when it
comes to financial matters,
whether it's a big budget or
who's going to spring for
brunch. (Splitting the bill

may be best.) Sunday's
custom-made for dream-
Sing the day away.

(Leo July 23rd thru
August 22)Things are heat-
ing up as the
week begins --
warm and cozy
stuff at home,
hot work opportunities,
even some sparks when it
comes to romance. That
fiery energy looks fabulous
on you! On Wednesday and
Thursday, be extra aware
of others' reactions. Their
body language, as well as
what they say, tells you
which way to go. The solu-
tion to a problem or the res-
olution to an interpersonal
issue may not be immedi-
ately apparent this week-
end, and it's probably not
the first one you come up
with. Look further to find
it. On Sunday, let your
intuition speak loud and
(Virgo August 23rd
thru September 22nd)
That itchy feel-
ing you have as
the week begins
may be work-
related rather than derma-
tological. You want adven-
ture; you've got responsi-
bilities. Well, you're good
at multitasking. And on
Wednesday and Thursday,
work might have some
very interesting fringe ben-
efits, including an impor-
tant interpersonal connec-
tion. Making a few shifts in
your routine this weekend
signals the universe that
you're open to something
new, so if you'd like a fresh
opportunity or two, just
mix it up! On Sunday,
some solo, time sounds
mighty good.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd)
Want a raise?
Got a certain
*.; romance-related
request? As the
week begins, go on -- make
your best case, and ask
away. Be sure to get specific
about the 'benefits to the
other party for best results.
Positive responses are
favored now, so jump right
in. Beware of the blues on
Wed and Thur -- or indulge
in them, but only briefly. Do
what it takes to help yourself
feel good again and get your
head back in the present.
This weekend, on the other
hand, looks to be full of
sweet possibilities. Try
something new to get them
flowing. On Sunday you can
make great progress on an
ongoing project.
Scorpio October 23rd
thru November 21st)
Your enthusiasm
could get the
better of your
best judgment as
the week begins. Take a sec-
ond (and third!) look prior
to leaping. On Wed and
Thur, however, your self-
control is supreme -- you're
an excellent negotiator now,
whether it's business or per-
sonal. Even reaching an
understanding that involves
making a compromise feels
fantastic. This weekend
could find you reorganizing
your physical surroundings,
while doing the same with
the contents of your head or

heart. And speaking of
heart, Sunday could get

(Sagittarius November
22nd thru December 21st)
F Friendships are in
ihe stars as the
\\eck begins, and
ou might even
find yourself with a new
admirer or two. You're
downright inspiring now,
so who can blame them?
On Wednesday and
Thursday, leave the credit
cards at home, make your
own lunch and find free
fun -- you're a great impro-
viser now, and your budget
will thank you. While oth-
ers might be discussing the
latest blockbuster this
weekend, you can find the
person in the room who
will delve into philosophi-
cal matters or jump onto
your latest, greatest idea.
Sunday, you just might
stay in your slippers all day
(Capricorn December
22nd thru January 19th)
Your hard work
might not seem
to be getting you
anywhere as the
week begins, but it's not like
you to give up. Hang in
there, baby. By Wednesday
and Thursday, you ought to
be sitting in a much prettier
position. Look for results
and recognition now,
whether at work, socially or
in the love department (or
even all three!). This week-
end, you may be considering
revamping a certain plan,
but unless you've got a crys-
tal ball, there are a few fac-
tors you can't foresee. Minor
adjustments are better than
radical ones. On Sunday, art
and culture feed your head
and heart.
(Aquarius-January 20th
thru February 18th) Get
. yourself near
.people who
share your val-
ues as the week
begins. If work isn't the
place to find them, seek out
a social cause or arts hotspot
where you'll both fit in and
have your mind stimulated.
On Wed. and Thursday, your
energy may flag. Extinguish
the candle at one end (at
least), get some rest and
exercise and eat with your
health foremost in mind.
You'll want to be in fine fet-
ter for this weekend, when
all sorts of excitement is in
the stars. Your unique out-
look sparks lots of interest -
- share it! On Sunday, be
financially frugal.
(Pieces February 19th
and March 20th) While
it may seem
itive, don't be
too proactive
about work issues as the'
week begins. Take a wait-
and-see, quietly observant
approach. On Wednesday
and Thursday, the cycle of
karma is flowing; the help
(and the love) you give
comes right back around
(albeit maybe in a differ-
ent form). Your dreams
and your intellect are inte-
grated in some very inter-
esting ways this weekend.
Let your thoughts flow
while you share them with
a like-minded soul. On

Sunday, you've got all
sorts of energy. What will
you d? with it?

EDITOR'S NOTE: All suspects are deemed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. The Sheriffs
Office reports are a matter ofpublic record. The Star seeks to educate the community in the hopes of keeping
our community safe.
BURGLARY, ASSAULT/BATTERY-On Monday at 1:25 p.m. a suspect went
before the "Judge of the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court, in Duval County" for an
outstanding warrant for his arrest for a crime he committed earlier. At that time,
the suspect had entered the victim's apartment at 4646 Moncrief Road, without
consent or permission. The suspect is believed to have entered through a door that
does not lock properly. The victim and suspect have never lived together in the
apartment. The suspect hid in the victim's son room. When the victim came home
and entered his apartment, the suspect attacked him, battered and choked the vic-
tim. Witnesses told the police officer that they observed the suspect battering the
victim. The suspect kicked a door inside the apartment causing it to crack. The
victim who identified him knows the suspect. The suspect was read his rights
arrested, transported to jail, and charged with a felony.

AUTO ACCIDENT, HIT AND RUN-On Sunday, at 9:15 p.m. a JSO police offi-
cer made contact with the suspect. A state computer check revealed that the sus-
pect had an outstanding arrest warrant. The warrant read: The suspect, who was
driving a red "Ford Ranger Truck", struck a white "Honda Civic", which was
being driven by the witness (victim). After the crash, the suspect fled the scene
and parked the truck in front of 3515 Wilson Blvd. The suspect and passenger
exited the truck and began walking down the street, away from the crash. The vic-
tim was taken to the hospital by ambulance for minor knee injuries. A few minutes
later, a witness called the police and informed them of the name of the suspect that
was driving the truck. Once the suspect's identity was obtained, the description
given by the anonymous witness matched the description of the suspect and pas-
senger. The suspect was placed under arrest, transported to jail and booked on
leaving the scene of an accident.

Sunday, at 7:35 p.m. a JSO undercover police officer was posing as a drug
buyer/users in the area of 3100 N. Myrtle Ave. The undercover police officer
engaged the 30-year-old male (suspect) in a conversation about the purchase of
marijuana. The suspect stated that he "aint got none." The undercover police offi-
cer told the suspect let me get that $20.00 and I'll flip it. The suspect handed the
undercover police officer two pieces of crack cocaine in exchange for the $20.00
of JSO funds. The suspect was not arrested due to long term investigation going
on. On the same suspect was seen standing in front of 1257 West 22nd Street. The
suspect was arrested, read his rights, and transported to jail for an interview. The
suspect stated that he did not sell crack cocaine or marijuana, and has not sold any
drugs since 2001. The suspect was charged with a felony.

CHILD SUPPORT-On Monday, at 3:15 p.m. a police officer was dispatched to
7958 Jaguar Dr. apartments in reference to serving a warrant, and to make an
arrest on a 23-year-old male (suspect), for late child support payment. Upon
arrival, police officer made contact with the suspect who owed $1000.00 in back
child support payments. The suspect was read his rights, arrested, taken to jail, and
booked on "Civil" charges for back child support pay.

SPOUSE DOMESTIC BATTERY-On Monday, at 5:44 p.m. a police officer
was dispatched to 2160 Mayport Rd. in reference to a battery. The call was origi-
nally received from Baptist Beaches emergency room, but the victim went home
before an officer could be dispatched. Upon arrival, police officer made contact
with a 23-year-old female wife (victim) who stated that her 24-year-old estranged
husband (suspect), threw her on the ground and bit her on the neck. The two are
separated and no longer live together. She also told the police officer that the sus-
pect pulled some of the braids out of her hair. The witness, who is the victim's
roommate, told the police officer that she saw the suspect on top of the victim and
threw the victim to the ground for the second time. The police officer observed a
cast on the victim's left arm, and a bite mark on her neck. There were also two old
marks on the right side of her neck, which she said were from previous attacks.
The police officer made contact with the suspect at his apartment, and read him
his rights. The suspect stated that he and his wife were trying to work things out.
He said that he saw his wife at the movie theater with another male, and "he went
blank." He told the police officer that his wife called him to her apartment and
said she wanted to work things out. They began arguing, she slapped him and they
tussled. He said he doesn't remember what happened after she slapped him, he just
remembers being on the ground. The police officer did not see any marks on the
suspect. The suspect was arrested and transported to jail.

GRAND THEFT-On Thursday at 10:00 p.m. a police officer was dispatched to
9501 (Arlington Expressway -Regency Mall, JC Penny) in reference to a theft.
Upon arrival, police officer met with the store manager who said he observed a
23-year-old female (suspect), enter the store with a large bag. He observed her
return four pillows and then go into the junior department. The suspect then began
to fill the empty bag with items from the store. The store manager followed the
suspect out the door on the south side of the building. The suspect was cooperative
with the store manager. She stated a friend advised her, if she carried the property
out of the store she would be able to keep some of it. The police officer observed a
video recording of the suspect walking out of the store with the property. The store
manager signed a form and advised the total amount stolen was $666.88. The sus-
pect was arrested, transported to jail, and charged with a felony.
