Georgia on the first Sunday in February
2007 giving him the ability to put all of his
energies, heart and soul to place his city of
birth, Jacksonville, back on track.
As a 1969 graduate of Raines High
School and raised in the Durkeeville area
with eight brothers and sisters, Rev. Porter
has strong feelings and maximum faith
about Jacksonville and is ready to get to
work on making a.change, even though he
has not lived here for more than twenty
years, he still calls Jacksonville home.
When discussing his new position and
how it relates to a pastorship, he said the
position of Leader of the Office of Faith and
Community Based Partnership gives him a
much bigger platform to perform in the
manner he has been led to believe and
trained to perform.
Rev. Porter is a man who relies on his
experiences and the doors that have been
opened for him. This gives him strength and
courage as a male who lived in Durkeeville

However, they have not denied that the assaults occurred. The school is located in one of

Katrina Recovery in Major Need of National
Marc H. Modal

MAY E. FORD
BETTY ASQUE DAVIS
This year's State of the
Union Address by President
George W. Bush offered lit-
tle hope for the thousands of
New Orleanians who fled the
city in the wake of Hurricane
Katrina and never returned
and those who did return
home. Not a reference to the
tragedy that halved the popu-
lation and left in the region
in ruins was made.
What a difference over
one and one-half years make
after the president vowed to
restore New Orleans to its
former and greater glory in a
poignant speech in historic

But Capitol Hill
Democrats are hardly great
saviors of New Orleans.
They also failed to reference
Katrina in their response to
the president's State of the
Union. They put nothing in
their first 100 hours agenda
that addressed the rebuilding
of the Gulf Coast Region.
Not until the press and
activists noted the glaring
absence of Katrina in the two
parties' recent addresses did
they begin to do anything.
But better late then never, I
guess. Still. How interesting
that Senate Democrats
would hold a field hearing
on the rebuilding efforts in
New Orleans not too long
after the hubbub, and that a
presidential candidate would
be present. CNN even sug-

By most accounts, the

Congress decided to cap aid

Does anyone really care
about losing one of our
nation's greatest cities?
In aNew York Times col-

to public officials, you will
hear about billions of dollars

through this program or that.
The maze of bureaucratic
initiatives is dizzying. But
when you talk to the people
most in need of help -- the
poor, the elderly, the dis-
abled, the children -- you
will find in most cases that
the help is not reaching
them. There is no massive
effort, no master plan, to
bring back the people who
were driven from the city
and left destitute by
Katrina," he wrote.

Saint Gabriel's Episcopal Church Develops
Strategic Plan at Retreat
Father Eddie Jones, Vicar at Saint Gabriel's assist-
ed by his wife Mrs. Janine Jones facilitated a retreat
for the members of Saint Gabriel's Episcopal at Camp
Weed and Cerveny Conference Center, the camp site of
the Diocese of Florida located in Live Oak, Florida.
The purpose of the retreat was to develop a strategic
plan for the future of their church located in northwest
According to church leader Dr. Norma Solomon
White, "The genesis of St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church
was on April 28, 1964 in the chapel of the late Leon
Bland's Funeral Home. In 1965, the church moved into
a building on the site of the present church. The present
edifice became a reality in 1982. The dedication of the
New Church was held on May 21, 1983. For more than
forty years, St. Gabriel's has been a vital part of the
SNorthwest Quadrant and the Jacksonville Community."
The focus of the weekend led by Father and Mrs.
Jones was to explore and to discover how church mem-
bers can best carry out their unique purpose and con-
tribute their unique gifts to one another as a Christian
community and to the world. Former Senior Warden,
Dr. Alvin G White, whose vision it was, for the church
to go on the retreat stated that "the attendees also
focused on an outreach program designed to develop
strategies to increase the membership at St. Gabriel's,
involve the youth as well as renew efforts to move
toward parish status."
"The Song of St. Gabriel" was the theme of the
Retreat with Isaiah 49:1 as the scripture reference. In
that scripture reading Isaiah reminds us that even
before we were born God knew'our names. Father
Eddie challenged participants to grow both as individ-
uals and as a church and to reach out in love to the
world around us. Members are called to listen and to
recognize God's song for each member and for St.
Gabriel's. Members were continuously asked "What is
your song" during the Retreat?
"Through large group and in small group settings,
those who attended the Retreat reflected upon our God-
given purpose, gifts and strengths both as individuals
and as a church body. The group discussed and formed
Focus Groups for developing goals and new direction
foi St. Gabriel's congregation. Singing, worship, shar-
ing and fellowship were vital components of the
Retreat. Participants departed from the weekend with a
renewed sense of purpose and vision for St. Gabriel's
Episcopal Church," reports Dr. Norma Solomon White.
Located at 5235 Moncrief Road, Jacksonville,
.Florida 32208, the church has Sunday school at 9:30
a.m. and morning worship at 10:00 a.m. each week.
Brunch is served immediately after service. The public
is invited to join us for worship every Sunday.
Dr. Norma Solomon White further reports, "Plans
are being made to begin an after school tutorial and test
preparation program at the church. Interested commu-
nity schools and families should call the church at (904)
765-0964, leave a call back number and someone will
respond to telephone messages". Father Eddie Jones,
Vicar and Earl Sims, Senior Warden state, "Focus
Groups are meeting monthly to further develop and
implement the plans made."
Members are excited about the success of the retreat
which included adults and youth.

"To everything there is a season

heaven. A time 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

vided him the knowledge and forti-
tude to forge ahead through the
Office of the Mayor, to make
Jacksonville one of the safest cities
in the nation. He is seeking the help
of all of the city's churches through
the pastors; the community leaders,
business persons, schools and organ-
izations, to make this goal a reality.
He said that Jacksonville is a city of
800,000 and it will not be difficult to
form a committee to Stop Violence
in our community. Stopping the vio-
lence is where he will begin his
.When advised that many church-
es and nonprofit organizations see
his office as a place to get money and
may see his effort to stop the vio-
lence as a form of neglecting their
cry for financial assistance, he
responded that the ability to provide
larger grants will be available
through the platform he is forming
for all to get involved.
Porter said that everyone will be
given two questions if they wish to
be a part of or a recipient of the Faith
and Community Based Partnership
and make the necessary changes.
The first question is: "What can I do
to help stop the violence? The sec-
ond question is: "What can you, the
organization I represent, do to help
stop the violence? He has a form
prepared with the two questions.
"With every one joining in this
effort, we will stop the violence,
increase literacy, economic develop-
ment, the quality of life, and public
safety while streamlining govern-
ment" said Porter.
He told of a country and western
musician who visited his office last
week and asked, "What can I do?"
He left, wrote a song, had it copy-
righted and produced a CD, spending
his own $500, as an unemployed cit-
'izen from St. Augustine.
The sooner we all understand
that we can play a role and that the
high murder rate is affecting us per-
sonally, our churches, our homes,
our jobs, our families, the sooner we
will get control of our communities
and can join Eli Grimes in his song
written just for the Jacksonville met-
ropolitan community when he
speaks of violence, said Rev. Porter

Unique "Touch Tour"
Brings Art To Blind Students
Getting a better vision by touching the art
-- If you've ever been to
an art museum, you
know the number one
rule: do not touch! That
is, unless you had a
chance to be on a unique
tour at the Cummer
Museum of Art and
Gardens on Monday
With every fin-
gertip, gliding over
ridges and curls, the
image grew clearer. The
first visitors to see the
Cummer Museum's new
exhibit -- didn't use their
eyes at all.
"It's like being
able to get to know the
art and see what it really
looks like," said Maggie
Meade, who had just fin-
ished running her gloved
hand over the bends of a
bold wooden woman, a
forlorn bronze bust, and
other works of art.
On this special
"touch tour" were stu-
dents from the Florida
School for the Deaf and
the Blind in St.
Augustine. Their vision
is very low or nonexist-
ent. But their interest in
the Cummer's new dis-
play of African-
American art is extraor-
It's more than

sense of that word.
looking at something,
and you can't really see it
that well -- you're not
going to make as good of
a connection as you
would if you were to feel
it," explained Chelsea
Stillman, one of about
two dozen students who
took the tour.
Walter and Linda
Evans, the artwork's
owners, couldn't take
their eyes away. "They
can tell things about this
art that that I've never
known before," Walter
Evans said after mar-
veling at the students'
ability to understand the
expressions on the
sculptures' faces and the
emotions they conveyed.

TV Judge Hatchett Uses
in Episodes to Help Teens
CULVER CITY, CA Judge Glenda Hatchett continues
her crusade to help at-risk young teens with two powerful,
hard-hitting intervention episodes, both airing during Black
History Month in the syndicated courtroom series "Judge
Hatchett." Interventions include sending an out-of-control
teen to tour the Underground Slave Railroad with historian
Carol Westmoreland and a young girl experiencing a reality
check when she is directed to volunteer with the organiza-
tion, "Hands On Atlanta."
"Underground Railroad Intervention"
Mary Barnes vs. Jewel Barnes (Baltimore) Mary Barnes
brought her 15-year-old daughter Jewel before Judge
Hatchett because Jewel had been acting like a thug whose
life has spun out of control since she turned 13! Jewel
admitted she has issues with her mom, and also said "she is
never going to go back to school, because she can make
money selling drugs or hustling and besides, who is going
to give a black teen mom dropout a fighting chance?" Judge
Hatchett sends Jewel to an awe-inspiring inter mention heree

Lisa Spearman vs. Alicia-Spearman (Las Vegas) Lisa
Spearman said that her 14-year-old daughter Alicia is a "sex-
crazed, drug-using wild child who is completely self
destructive." She continued by claiming that Alicia's outra-
geous behavior included trying to roll a joint with a page of
the bible, getting arrested for fighting and even stealing
money from an old lady's purse. Lisa claimed, most recent-
ly, Alicia was missing for five days and she was found in a
sleazy hotel room with a truck driver. Alicia admits to
smoking weed and trying heroin and meth as well as
"gangbanging and stealing cars." Judge Hatchett steps in
and sendsAlicia to her hometown Atlanta to help the "Hands
On Atlanta" volunteer organization rebuild an outdoor area
of the East Point Youth Center. The intervention becomes
very personal when Judge Hatchett, and even Tom the
bailiff, arrive to help and show Alicia the value of commu-
nity service and working together.

without any physical confrontation. There were some things
that 1 did and said that caused problems in her relationship. I

come between her and her husband. How do I apologize?
Hurting (Oklahoma City, OK)
You owe an apology to her husband as well because your .a:- .'.-. i
actions affected him too. You're an adult and know you should-
n't do anything to jeopardize another person's relationship. If you did something so bad that
it would get physical, you should communicate with a card or a phone call. Then again, if
this is your friend and you truly have her best interests at heart, you should be able to
respectfully apologize, face-to-face without drama and keep it moving.
I'm 24 yrs old and my girlfriend is 30. We've lived together for a year but she recently said
that she can't live with anyone because she's too picky and needs her space. We've made
long term plans for the future and I don't see those plans working if we aren't around each
other. She works and I go to school full-time. Am I wrong for giving up and moving on or
do I stay around and work through these issues?
Anonymous Male (On-line Reader)
You're ahead of the game because you get the idea that she doesn't want you. When some-
one pulls out the old "I need space" excuse they're simply saying "Get away so I can sort
my life, be alone or see other people." You may want to put the brakes on any joint long
term plans because your relationship is going to end. You already know this and should con-
tinue to plan your life and not feel guilty about moving on.
I'm 20 years old and recently lost my virginity. For some reason, my mom didn't take this
well. Ever since she found out, she has been on me abqut everything I do and she questions
my actions all the time. Now she is beginning to falsely accuse me of being promiscuous.
I have a full-time job; I go to college and do everything to prove that I'm not what she
thinks. She is making my life a living hell. What do I do?

From Negroes to African-Americans
Ester Da\ is
ReligionA ndSpirilualitly comn
There has al\\\as been resistance to an\ change in the
%otnlg habits of Negroes. \hen Judge J. W;anes \Varmg --. .
ordered that the South Carolina Democratic primary> be it
opened to Negroes in 194-7, there \\as the most biter denun- .
cialion of' he decision. The Waring famnl\ \\as ostracized b\ '
whites in Charleston, and hoodlums threatened them \\ith
bodily harm. In 1956, a Louisiana registrar disqualified Negroes as qualified voters who did
not satisfactorily demonstrate their understanding of the Constitution.
The steady migration of the Negro to the North and West gave them a new powerful
voice in voting and politics. In cities like Chicago, Detroit and Cleveland they frequently
held the balance of power' in close elections and in certain pivotal states. The votes of
Negroes came to be respected and regarded as crucial in national elections. Meanwhile, an
increasing number of Negroes in the South were registering and voting. Thirty-five thou-
sand Negroes voted in the 1948 Democratic primary in South Carolina. Half could not read
or write, did not have a driver's license or gas money. In the same year, the number of reg-
istered Negro voters in Georgia had already exceeded 150,000, and this number was even
higher by the time of the next presidential election. In 1952, it was estimated that 63 per-
cent of the eligible Negro electorate in Durham, N.C., voted regularly.
In the same 1952 election the efforts of Southern Negro leaders raised the number of
Negro voters to 2 million, and the influence of the Negro voters could be seen clearly in the
elections. It was held by some white newspapers that the Negro vote was an important fac-
tor in holding Louisiana and South Carolina in the Democratic column. (There were 350
Negro publications at this time, some daily.) A survey of the vote in predominantly Negro
districts revealed a majority for the Democratic presidential candidate, Adlai Stevenson,
ranging from 56 percent in two New Jersey cities to 99 percent in Darlington, S.C. In 1952,
there was widespread opposition to Eisenhower's candidacy in part because of his stand on
Army segregation in 1948, while other Negroes were more concerned with retaining the
gains made under the New Deal and Fair Deal programs of Roosevelt and Truman.
The rising influence of the Negro was clearly on the march. In 1954, Illinois sent Negro
Democrat William Dawson to the House of Representatives for his seventh consecutive
term, while Adam Clayton Powell was returned from New York for his sixth term. Charles
C. Diggs Jr. of Detroit was elected in the same year, marking the first time in the 20th cen-
tury that as many as three Negroes were in the Congress. Detroit would send a second Negro
to Congress in 1964. By 1956, there were some 40 Negroes in state legislatures, all in the
North and West, some being Baptist ministers.
The year 1956 was an economically empowering year for the Negro. In 1956, the
Negroes of Montgomery, Ala., boycotted the city bus lines to avoid the alleged abuse of
Negro passengers by white drivers, to obtain a more satisfactory seating regulation and to
secure the employment of Negro drivers on buses. Almost immediately about 90 Negroes
were indicted under a 1921 law forbidding conspiracy to obstruct the operation of a busi-
ness. But the effective weapon of the boycott gained momentum as the Negroes of
Tallahassee, Fla., in June 1956, cut their bus company's business by 75 percent by follow-
ing the Montgomery plan.
Thus, by 1956, something akin to economic warfare was being waged in America by
the Negro. Negroes began to boycott businesses and to vote.
Now, will someone please tell me what happened? The Negroes, who coined their lega-
cy, are fading away, and we are left with the African-Americans. We know what history
wrote about the Negro. What will history write about the African-Americans?

Black Men Give Your Daughters A Special Valentines Day
What does it mean when we hear the term "Daddy's Little Girl", in the Black community? Surprisingly, the same
Thing for other cultures in America. .
Basic observational patterns are not a scientific way to judge important data when dealing with this issue. Teaching
S young ladies from ages 7 to 13 in an elementary school has identified a disturbing realization about our young Black girls.
Many are lonely, depressed and have very diminished self-esteems because their dads lack an involvement in their lives.
," The facts cannot be denied that girls look up to their dads. According to data from Science Daily 1999, "...researchers
II found that the quality of fathers' involvement with daughters was the most important feature of the early family environ-
ment:" Daddies are the keys to a young girl's emotional stability and future relationship patterns with the males in their ,
lives, and continued educational success. Stated also; "...important role fathers seem to play in their daughters' develop-
ment, given that the quality of mothering is generally more closely associated with how children turn out than is the quality of fathering".
Comments made in our own communities about "where are the fathers"?
We know where they are; we just don't say anything to them to motivate or guide fathers to see their daughters. We just shake our heads
and call them: "no good, dead beats, hustlers, No good baby daddies, and identify them by their parents as being "just like his daddy." Maybe all the "Baby Momma Drama"
and the "you ain't seeing MY kids unless you pay" issues have hurt our children to the point where girls feel the need to display themselves in an inappropriate fashion to get
the attention that they desire. The biological make up of men and women are what allow them to conceive a child, but what about the emotional maturity to support a child?
This is a,willing and consensual action on both parents unless there is rape or incest. Despite the emotional implications, and if both parties are emotionally ready or not,
our Black girls are having sex, our Black girls are having sex with multiple partners, which can result in pregnancy, and contracting venereal diseases that will develop com-
plications later in their adult years or even the possibility of death.
What does this have to do with fathers?
Involvement of fathers in a girl's life especially during or between ages 4 to 16 are crucial because girls receive a foundation on how they want their boyfriends and
future husbands to be. The quote by Ernest Hemingway states, "To be a successful father, there's one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don't look at it for the first two
years." Unfortunately too many Black fathers have not seen their girls over two years. This gives justification for many mothers, why even bother to have a father in their
daughter's life if he is going to leave any way. Expectations are that Black fathers will leave the home after five to six years of the child's life. Despite the causes this is a
fact that many do not want to face, or choose to down size by excuses and ignorance.
One of the greatest challenges is change, this is enough to scare any new father, and unfortunately young fathers are unprepared for the emotional and financial
responsibilities children bring, and they have no mentors to guide them. Communication is a key ingredient for new fathers and mothers. A quote by Phyllis McGinley
states, "The thing to remember about fathers is... they're men. A girl has to keep it in mind: They are dragon-seekers, bent on improbable rescues. Scratch any father, you
find someone chock-full of qualms and romantic terrors, believing change is a threat, like your first shoes with heels on, like your first bicycle...". Because of this fear of
change and a threat to their ideas on stability and independence many young men and some older ones are just plain scared. To fight this fear there must be opportunities
to "teach" our young African American brothers how to be fathers.
My personal feelings are, "....until you have a daughter of your own, you will never know the joy and the love that booms in
a man's heart. You will never know the fear, anxiety and stress of being responsible for a little girl that is depending on you to keep the
*! scary things away. You will never know the sense of honor and nobility that makes a man want to be more than he is, to work harder
than he ever has to please his child. You will never know how a man's heart jumps, skips, and melts when his daughter runs and jumps
in his arms. You will never know the heartbreak of the fathers who are haunted by the inner demons that try to consume them when
A, they are not allowed to see their daughters or are unable to spend time with them. Unless you have a daughter, and have gone through
divorce, separation, imprisonment, the court system or denied visitation by the mother, you will never know why men are angry at the
world." This does not go well with a young girl just waiting to see her dad. Not understanding why he does not call or write, and not
realizing that these actions have long term detrimental emotional and psychological affects in future relationships.
This February has two important events;\Black history and Valentines Day. Black Men, I challenge you to see your daughters,
;i spend time with them swallow your pride, disregard your arrogance, and break the cycle of not supporting your children. You may have
experienced this, just as I have, but the time is now to break this viscous cycle. Make the time in your busy schedules, get rid of the
tough guy and thug persona and be a loving and caring father. I challenge mothers as well regardless of past mistakes, hurts or situa-
tions, allow your daughters to see their fathers. Unless there is legal action, abuse (mental or physical), put your child first and allow
them to spend time with their dads. Why can't Black folk put aside the "Baby Mama and Baby Daddy" drama and let their girls know
that they have two parents that love and support them. What have you got to lose except your pride.

Speaking to the annual

how he resurrected the.

past two years.
"When we were coming
to SCLC, the headline in the

(AJC) said, 'SCLC is on the
verge of collapse." Steele
recounted. "The sub-title
was, 'Only God can resur-

didn't die, but we were on
There wasn't much of
any other kind of support
4 when Steele, then a board
member, was selected to
take over SCLC. The organ-
ization was sharply divided.
The convention at which
Steele was elected was so
emotional, that the local
police had to be summoned
to maintain order. Steele
wasn't prepared for what
greeted him upon his arrival
at the Atlanta headquarters.
"When we got there, the
lights were off," Steele said.
"The phone was turned off,
and we couldn't meet pay-
roll. In the last two years,
we have raised $6 million."
Steele described John B.
Smith, publisher of the
Atlanta Inquirer and chair-
man of the NNPA, as the
first business leader to
embrace him..Steele began
calling on business leaders
he had supported as a state
legislator to help him raise
funds for a $3 million inter-
national headquarters, to be
built in the same block as
the old SCLC building on
auburn Avenue in Atlanta.

insensitive. The simple
solution? Listen up rather
than 'lecturing (and before
taking action). Your ability
to come up with an entirely
different option on
Thursday or Friday might
just make you a superstar --
exercise that bulging cre-
ative muscle of yours! Ahd
this weekend, keep your
finances separate from oth-
ers' as much as possible.

want to have the decks clear
for some incoming romance
around Tuesday and
Wednesday; the stars are
sending some serious fun
and flirtation your way.
Playing Cupid for someone
else earns you karmic bonus
points! On Thursday and
Friday, think carefully
about how you're phrasing
your suggestions -- you may
come across as just being
critical, so be sure to point
out what they're doing right
too. Expect some things to
get lost in the shuffle this
weekend; sometimes that's
just the way it goes.
(Libra September 23rd
thru October 22nd) Ask
Monday -- the
.sA^, answers you get
ingly positive (or at least
very revealing). Around
Tuesday and Wednesday,
the sentimentality in the air
may have quite an effect on
you; try to keep it all (espe-
cially the love-related stuff)
in perspective! Time spent
with a friend with a good
sense of humor is definitely
in order. Then your personal
energy's great on Thursday
and Friday, with social
activities favored and your
brain in high gear. Watch
for an excellent idea. Finish
off a project this weekend
rather than starting a new

Around Tuesday and

who can say what kind of
sweet results you'll get?

H You're an all-star
on Monday, and
whatever you put
w. your mind to is a
shoo-in. Around Tuesday
and Wednesday, it's your
unique approach that wins
you bonus points -- and
hearts! When it comes to
romance, let others go the
red-roses route; you've got
different, more original, bet-

new concepts from other
sources -- people, books,

gets you so far in an imper-

and Wednesday, it looks like
you may get some well-
deserved recognition --
maybe at work, perhaps for
your lusciously loyal style
of loving. Things look hot
for singles now, so work it.
Short-term plans might go
awry on Thursday and

the work-related or social
variety (or, even better, a
synergy of the two). If you
feel low-energy around
Tuesday and Wednesday,
be proactive about getting
rest, exercise and healthy
foods. What'll lift your spir-
its even more is letting
those in your life know how
much you care -- love is
truly in the air. On
Thursday and Friday, you
should be all powered up,
and you can use that power
for an electric brainstorm-

being extravagant this
weekend; there's the future

Those in high places come
to your aid now, and as far
as the love energy goes on

aiming right at' you from
on high. Be a ready and
willing target! On

time to let it all evolve
within you. This weekend,
the stars say you can trans-

like to change?
He Took Car While She Was Sleeping: It was early Monday morning
when an officer was dispatched to Ace Towing and Storage regarding a dispute
and unauthorized use of a vehicle. Prior to his arrival the dispatcher rerouted him
to the 1200 block of 4th Street because the victim was now at her home. When
the officer arrived, he spoke to the victim,YLW, who stated that she was familiar
with a cousin and visited her frequently. She stated that she had left her car keys
in the table in the living room after securing her car about 11:30 p.m. When she
woke up the next morning about 7:00 a.m. the next morning, she realized that her
keys were not on the table. She looked outside and observed that her car was
gone. She then asked her teenage children and their friends who were at the
house and if they knew who had the car. Her son's friend, GC, told her that the
suspect, IW, told him that he had took the keys, and car and crashed it into a pole.
The victim located her car at Ace Towing and Storage and it had been totaled.
The victim stated that the suspect told her that he would have the car fixed for
her. She was given a f.form and advised of the filing procedure. She completed
and signed a stolen vehicle affidavit. The vehicle could not be repaired.
He Broke Into the House: An officer was called to the 5000 block of
Commonwealth by a witness who observed a burglary in progress. The dispatch-
er told the officer that the witness stated that he observed a black male wearing
gloves, black hat, black shirt and gray pants had just entered a rear upstairs win-
dow of a house and was still in the house.
Upon arrival, the officer covered the front of the house while another officer
went to the rear. One of the officers observed a window screen on the eastside of
the house and also observed that the rear window was open at the rear of the
house. One of the officers observed the suspect, CAC, inside of the house stand-
ing at the open window. When the suspect saw the officer, he closed the window
and shut the blinds. Soon afterwards, the K-9 officer arrived and the suspect went
out the front door of the house where he was taken into custody. A search was
conducted to get the name of the homeowner, through JEA and the suspect said
that the name given was the victim's name and that he knew the people who lived
in the house and that he was a friend of her son. He stated that he went through
the window before without permission'to enter. He told that his friend was at
school at Grand Park. The officer called the school and talked with the friend
who lived at the house and was advised that he knew the person but that he had
never entered through the rear window to visit him. When the officer asked him
what would his mother want to do about this friend entering their home, he
advised, "lock him up." The officer was unable to speak to the mother but left
two messages on her cell phone. The witness advised that the dogs barking alert-
ed him to the suspect climbing through the bathroom window. The officer said he
could not tell if the'suspect had opened any drawers or had gone through anything
at the house because of the house was not tidy. The suspect stated that he went to
the house, knocked on the door, and when no one answered, he went through the
rear bathroom window. He was arrested.
He Had A Knife Cut: An officer was dispatched to Shands Medical Center in
reference to an injury involving a knife. "When he met with the subject, ET, in the
Flex Care section of the hospital, the subject would not cooperate. The injured
man, TEN, was asked what caused him to have the cut on the back of his right
leg. TEN advised the officer that he sat on the knife. When the officer asked him
what type of knife that he sat on, he responded, "a regular knife." And then he
said, "What, you don't believe me, you saying that I'm lying dawg?" The officer
informed the injured victim that his injury was not consistent with his version of
what happened to him. The hospital staff told the officer that the subject could
not have cut himself by sitting on a knife. The subject became belligerent. He
refused to respond to any questions about the incident or give out personal infor-
mation. The officer was able to get personal information about the subject from
the hospital and left a case card and pamphlet with the subject. The officer went
to the address on Locksley where the subject had given as the place where he sat
on the knife but received no response. The case was cleared because the victim
refused to cooperate.
Violation ofAn Injunction: On Monday morning at approximately 10:25
p.m., an officer responded to a violation of injunction complaint at the 4000 block
of Sunbeam Road the Leigh Meadows Apartments. The officer arrived at the
scene and met with Ms. CLD who stated that her ex-boyfriend, TC violated the
terms of an injunction for protection. An investigation revealed that Mr. TC and
Ms. D resided together in the past and have one minor child in common. The
injunction was issued in January 2005 and Mr. C was served with the final injunc-
tion on January 19, 2005. Section 4 of the injunction sets the terms of visitation
for Mr. C. The injunction list SC as the responsible person that is to coordinate
the visitation arrangements with the minor child. Section 5 of the injunction stat-
ed the terms of contact between Mr. C and Ms. D. According to Ms. D she was at
her residence socializing with her friend JK (witness). Ms. JK ended her visit and
opened the door to Ms. D's residence and observed Mr. C at the entrance. Ms. D
went to the door and asked Mr. C to leave. Mr. C refused, and attempted to talk
to Ms. D. Ms. D called to her 14-year-old child to call the police so Mr. C left the
Mr. C called Ms. D several times while the officer was still present investigating
the complaint. On one occasion, Ms. D handed the telephone to the officer who
briefly spoke to Mr. C who attempted to explain the reason for his visit. The offi-
cer informed Mr. C that he could not debate the course of his actions and ended
the call. Ms. D advised the officer that she and Mr. C were due to appear in court
regarding their situation the following day. An information card was given.

Jermaine Dupri Named President of Island Records
Jermaine Dupri, one
of the industry's most
and songwriters, has been
appointed president of
Island Records Urban
Music, a new division of
the Island Def Jam Music
Group, it was announced
today by Antonio "L.A."
Reid, Chairman, Island
Def Jam Music Group.
As part of the arrange-
ment, Mr. Dupri will
oversee Island's entire
urban music operation. In
addition, he will produce
artists on the IDJ roster,
as well as provide his
production services to the
entire Universal Music
Group family of labels.
Dupri, the longtime
boyfriend of superstar
Janet Jackson, will report
directly to Mr. Reid, and
to Steve Bartels,
Def Jam Music Group,
on operational matters.
Dupri will be based in
Atlanta and New York.
"Jermaine's career has
grown from strength to
strength over the years,"
said Mr. Reid, "as a pro-
ducer and songwriter and
recording artist in his
own right, as a respected
label executive and entre-
preneur, and as a highly
esteemed developer of
new talent. His deep ties to
Atlanta's creative R&B
and hip-hop community
have been the springboard
to working with the great-
est names in contemporary
music. This is a tremen-
dous step forward for
Island Records and its
established roster of artists
who will benefit enor-
mously from Jermaine's
"I'm so excited to be
reunited with L.A. Reid
because most of my
biggest hits were when he
and I worked together,"
said Mr. Dupri. "And 'then
to be working side by side
with Steve Bartels -- I
don't think there's a better
team because he's by far
the best in the game. I
can't wait for us to start
stuntin' on y'all."
"I am thrilled that
Jermaine has decided to
join the Island Def Jam
family," said Mr. Bartels.
"Jermaine is a prestigious
hitmaker as well as a pro-
duction wizard. I personal-
ly look forward to helping
be part of once again,
adding to and continuing
his illustrious legacy."
Jermaine Dupri is one
of the preeminent figures
in Urban Music today. He
has written, produced, or
mixed hit records for
many of the industry's top
artists. His long-distance

has turned out hits with
Aretha Franklin, Whitney
Houston, TLC, Run-

run of hits with Usher,
which began in 1997, cul-
minated with 2004's string
of "Burn," "Confessions
Part II," and "My Boo" (a
duet with Alicia Keys)
which drove 8-times plat-
inum sales of Usher's
Confessions album, mak-
ing it the best-selling
album of the year.
Dupri is no stranger to
the Island roster, having
co-written and produced
the Mariah Carey #1 hits

which he shared the
Grammy award for Best
R&B Song), "Shake It
Off," and "Don't Forget

Dupri con'td from A-1
duced his first #1 recojx
on the Billboard Hot 100,
Kris Kross' 1992 single,
"Jump." The 5-times plat-
inum sales of the teen
duo's debut album led to
Dupri's founding of the So
So Def label in 1993. He
was quickly marked as or*
of the foremost young
entrepreneurs driving the
arrival of hip-hop as a cen-

many gold, platinum, and
artists including Xscape,
Da Brat, Jagged Edge, Lil'
