Christmas he won't see it in 2007.
Curtis Gabriel Collins, 22, had
dreams of a career in music as he
wore his Santa cap one Christmas.
Now, just twenty-one days before
Christmas 2007, while continuing
his ambition to become a singer, he
was at the Gutta Studio (C-Real) on
Stonewall Street regarding the mak-
ing of a CD when he encountered a
.fatal gun shot to his head. Collins,
according to witness, was shot by a
35-month old toddler. Witness said
the child reached for the gun that
was sitting on a table.
The gun discharged when the child
grabbed it, killing the 22-year-old

Green Party Candidate for President
:. Brunswick, Ga. Elaine Brown, most known as an
author and first female president of the Black Panther Party
is now one of the candidates in the California primary for
President of the United States to represent the Green Party.
Brown lives in Georgia and said that she did not campaign
to be placed on the California ballot but is pleased that
enough Californians did the campaigning for her to be
placed on the ballot. She had run for mayor of Brunswick
but the city removed her from the ballot stating that she did
not qualify as a resident. However,,on election morning,
they said she did qualify but her name had to be written in.
The word did not get out to the voters and her winning abil-
ity was diminished. The Green Party only hold primaries
in Washington, D.C., California, Massachusetts, Illinois,
West Virginia and Arkansas.
Ms. Brown said her main platform is to repeal the three strike crime bill and to work
extensively to get the marginized millions to understand that voting Green-Continued A-7

Jacksonville Seeking 235 New Officers

As Sheriff Rutherford stood
with such organizations as

and plans to make a change in

that the leaders had one com-
mon goal they were there to

Elder Donald Foy of

going to stand by and allow it
to continue. The sheriff said that the city needs 235
more officers on the streets. With such a move, the city
would no longer be known as the "murder capital of
Florida." As he had explained on WJCT-TV and radio,
the audit had recommended he remove five officers in
the homicide unit and put them on the streets but he had
not totally agreed with such a step since the audit also
showed that Jacksonville was 12% above average inl
solving murder cases when compared to similar size
cities. Sheriff Rutherford explained that he would need
$21.8 million to pay for the

Rivera, 17 and Charles Wardlow, 18. four of the suspects have been
charged with murder, home inva-
sion with a firearm or another deadly weapon and armed burglary after allegedly breaking
into Taylor's Miami home. Rivera has been pointed out as the one that pulled the trigger
which hit Taylor in the femoral artery, when Taylor confronted the four of them with a
machete once he realized they had broken into his home.
It has been reported that Jason Mitchell was involved with an earlier burglary of Taylor's
house after attending a birthday party for Taylor's sister in October. All four of the suspects
were denied bail. Eric Rivera, the accused shooter told his lawyer that the would like to
enter into a plea negotiation. When discussing this matter with many citizens, specifically
football fans, most feel the four should be severely punished.
Taylor died on November 27, a day after he was shot in the bedroom of his home. Police
feel that the 24-year-old NFL star was a victim of a botched burglary.
At the time of the incident, Taylor's girl friend and their one-year-old daughter were in
the house. Neither were injured.
Taylor was buried on Monday.

Let's Put the "Justice" Back in Our Juvenile
Child Watch@ Column
By Marian Wright Edelma, President of the Children's Defense Fund
Although she had no prior
criminal record, 14-year-old
Shaquanda Cotton was sen-
tenced in 2006 to up to seven
years in correctional deten-
tion for shoving a teacher's
aide in the small town of
Paris in East Texas. Another
14-year-old girl was sen-
tenced by the same judge to
probation after she was con-
victed of the serious crime of
arson. Shaquanda is Black
and the other girl is White.
Shaquanda was imprisoned at
the Ron Jackson State
Complex in Brownwood,
Texas, under an indetermi-
nate sentence that could have
lasted until her 21st birthday.
Fortunately she was released
in March 2007, having'spent'
a year behind bars, after a
wave of protests from civil
rights groups prompted offi-
cials to intervene.
Shaquanda's case is just one
of many reflecting the racial
inequity in America's juvenile
justice system, which funnels
low-income children of color
into the Cradle to Prison
Pipeline and unnecessary
The Pipeline, which sucks
many young people into adult
criminal justice systems, runs
failing schools, across vacant
lots where playgrounds and
health facilities should be,
and in and out of broken,
understaffed child welfare
agencies. By the time many
children get arrested and are
brought before a juvenile
court, they have been provid-
ed far too little loving and
thoughtful adult support only
to face purported child serv-
ing systems that treat them
The juvenile justice sys-
tem is a major feeder into the
Cradle to Prison Pipeline.
The high volume of cases
that'juvenile courts adminis -
ter-over 1.5 million cases
each year nationwide-is
attributable to the frequent
inadequacy of counsel for
poor youths; the cultural
incompetence or bias of
many judges; and the
increasing criminalization of
children at younger and
younger ages for behaviors
that used to be handled by
families, churches and com-
With overflowing dockets,
many Black children get
swept up in a judicial jugger-
naut where they are unlikely
to be treated fairly. Often, a
judge's hands are tied with
mandatory minimum sen-
tencing requirements, espe-
cially in drug cases. Judges
scrambling to dispose of as
many cases as possible com-
monly hand down verdicts in
minutes. However, racial
disparities are evident.
Although Black and White
teens report using drugs at a
similar rate, Black youths are
almost five times as likely to
youths for drug offenses. Far
too few effective substance
abuse prevention and treat-
ment programs exist.
Poor youths have a hard
time receiving the evenhand-
ed treatment that is extended
to more affluent White
youths. A White, neatly
groomed teen in a coat and
tie appearing before a judge
with his father and mother
and a private attorney has a
stronger chance of getting
probation and no detention
than a Black youngster with
an overworked public
defender and, too often, no
adult family member present.
The White youth will like-
ly be prepped to address the
judge as "Your Honor" and
his parents will be coached to
make the right suggestions to
the court: That they will
place their, child .in a drug
treatment program or 'send
him to military school. They
may implore the judge not to
ruin their boy's chances of
going to college. By contrast,
the Black teen may meet his
public defender for the first
time on the day of his trial;
may not fully understand the
seriousness of his situation;
and may lack social skills,
making him appear disre-
spectful and resulting in
harsher treatment. Public
defenders also frequently
counsel youths to plea bar-
gain rather than present a
defense. This may guarantee
the youth some form of
We can do better.
Incarceration shouldn't be
our society's first or primary
response to a minority youth
in trouble. Judges need to
look for opportunities to
offer poor young and minori-
ond chances most privileged
youths can count on. These
include alternatives to incar-
ceration such as restitution,
community service, electron-
ic monitoring, drug rehabili-
tation treatment, or place-
ment in a "staff secure" (but
not locked) community cor-
rections facility. In addition,
counseling, social services,
education and, in some cases,
mental health support should
be provided to address the
root causes of a youth's
involvement with the juve-
nile justice system.
And we must address drug
addiction as a critical health
issue and take it out of the
criminal justice system. We
don't penalize people because
they are addicted to tobacco
or alcohol, substances that
kill far more people than
drugs. More drug courts are
needed with the capacity for
early identification of sub-
stance abusing offenders and
the ability to place them
under court monitoring or
community supervision for
long-term treatment services,
job skills training and family
It's time for justice to
become a,reality for all in
America. Those administer-
ing our juvenile justice sys-
tem must be given what they
need to extend a real helping
hand rather than an angry fist
to young people in trouble.

you want a special friend to do

which can includequch things as

for personalized services.
Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth bur-

purchased; if above ground, a
mausoleum crypt. If cremation is
the choice, plan disposition of
the ashes. Do you want ihem
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).
If you would rather have a
memorial service express that
wish. That means a service in the
funeral home or a church where
the body is not present. A com-

the body is cremated you don't
hold a funeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

Danny Glover: Man and Talent with a Cause!

The word icon is
loosely thrown around
these days for some
actors who do one or
two big hit films then
fade into oblivion.
Then there are those
rare exceptions that not
only have the big mega
hit films but they also
have the steady track
record of high quality,

definitely of the latter
caliber. We were lucky
enough to catch up

Glover may not
know what that energy
was but he has been
very responsible for
help shaping the past to
make a better future.

pride when he said,

San Francisco State
where we shut down
the campus for nine
months and got the
first ethnic studies pro-
gram of any major uni-
versity in the country."
Glover has been a
major player in other
political and civil
rights arenas such as
going to South Africa

additional officers. Sheriff Rutherford said he would seek the additional funds from
the legislators in Tallahassee this spring. Jacksonville's sheriff's department is
smaller than Orlando's and Miami's. The sheriff said the additional officers would
allow the city to utilize the same strategy that was used with Operation Safe Street
where officers walked the streets and knocked on doors. It allowed the citizens to
develop a feeling of having a personal relationship with the Sheriff's Department and
they became more cooperative.
Mayor Peyton agrees with Sheriff Rutherford that we need more officers but is hav-
ing difficulty figuring out where the almost $22 million would come from.
The audit was very extensive (about 400 pages) and was done by The Matrix
Consulting Group at a cost of $339,000. It was started in April 2007 and was paid
for through funds collected from drug and other criminal acts.

The First Step In Career Planning Where Are You?
What do you want to
do for a living, and
what's the game plan for
getting there? Some
teens have clear career
ideas. Others feel anxiety
as they realize that, in
getting older, they must
make some important
decisions. Some simply
don't know what to do.
Career planning is
simply first figuring out
"where you are", and
"what you want to be,"
then developing a plan of
"how to get there."
Figuring out "where
you are" consists of
skills and interests. High
school counselors can
help you pinpoint these
things through grades,
test scores, and career-
Once you have a
sense of where you are
with skills and interests,
compare those with the
requirements of the
career ... then develop a
plan to get there.
It may seem like a
generalization, but peo-
ple tend to succeed at
things they love to do.
One man I know spent all
his spare time as a teen-
ager writing plays, sto-
ries and making home
movies. He eventually
went into television
news. Another man I
know loved keeping
track of sports statistics
and batting averages as a
child. He became a
financial analyst. A teen-
age girl who is driven to
achieve results and can
manage many tasks
could be a future busi-
ness owner or CEO.
Your parents may
want you to be a doctor

the first step to success.
It doesn't matter if your
goal is to be a daycare
provider or a doctor it
takes the right informa-
tion at the right time,
plus the ability to make
good decisions with the
information. High school
is a crucial time to begin
the process that will
enable you to reach your
goals and live a satisfied
and productive life.
How Can I Prepare Myself For Finals?
Tip 1: Start early
Preparation for exams
should begin earlier than
the day before the test. You
can't cram an entire unit of
information into an all-
nighter. Get started at least
a week before the exam.
Tip 2: Organize
Begin by making your-
self a calendar outlining a
daily schedule of topics for
review. Cover a small
amount of material for
each class each day. Every
time you complete a topic,
give yourself a mini
Tip 3: Outline
Once you have decided
what you need to study and
how much time you need
to spend studying, it is time
to actually study. One of
the best ways is to make
succinct outlines. As you
read over your textbook
and class notes, write a
brief summary for each
topic. Highlight the areas
in your outline that were
most troublesome. When
you have finished with all
the material, you will have
an outline you can review.
Tip 4: Make flash-
Similar to outlining,
making flashcards is a real-
ly helpful technique for
studying. By writing down
the information from your
outline, you are already
doing half the studying.
Tip 5: Get help
If you are having trou-
ble memorizing something
or a particular concept is
just not sinking in, get help
before it's too late. Ask
your teacher to go over a'
glitch you might be hav-
ing. Or if memorizing 200
vocabulary words seems
like too much to do, recruit
your family members to
quiz you with index cards.
Tip 6: Sleep
You need at least seven
hours of sleep a night to
function. Tests are
designed to make you
think. If you are sleep-
deprived, you won't be
able to remember any of
the information you
worked so hard to cram
into your brain.
Tip 7: Stay calm
Do not panic at the
exam! Even if at first
glance the test is over-
whelming, remember to
breathe. If a question
seems too hard, answer all
the questions you know,
then return to the ones you
left blank. Remind your-
self that you are prepared.

City Councilwoman Glorious Johnson
spoke to a friend of hers, Mr. William "Bill"
Henry, who is the Executive Director of the
America's Heart Organization which has
helped to build schools and hospitals in
various parts of the country. She wanted to
give items from his organization that
would be useful for those less fortunate.
Mr. Henry obliged her with a large truck of
shoes, clothes, toys and 324 cases (x 12)
of milk (Silk Milk).
Councilwoman Johnson had promised
Bishop Lorenzo Hall, Sr. that she wanted
to help him with his community Christmas
celebration by bringing shoes, clothes,
toys, and the milk to his church on 4th
Street, to be distributed to the people in
the community. On one side of his church
are the seniors and on the other side are
the Blodgett Homes.
When Councilwoman Johnson arrived
at Bishop Hall's church, the helpers were
waiting and ready to help unload for the
people. It was a glorious day. The people
enjoyed the fellowship and the distribution
of 100 bags of shoes, 15 boxes of new
clothes, toys, and over 3,000 cartons of
milk from the Silk Milk Company.
Mr. Williams and 4 members of his staff
loaded the boxes, bags, and cases on the
truck and helped Bishop Hall distribute the
items to the people.
Councilwoman Johnson stated that,
"this is what God wants us to do help one
another as He helps us."
As a result, approximately 3,000 people
from the community were served and
given a carton of milk, 5,000 pairs of
shoes were also distributed, as well as
toys and Christmas ornaments (many with
names on them), were given to boys and
girls in the El Bethel's church community.

RUIN OR RISE T
Ester Davis, ReligionAndSpirituality.com ';
Here we go again. Time to sing. "Peace on earth, good
will to men." Time to sing. "Let there be peace on earth,"
Time to say, "Peace be with you" and "Jesus is the reason
for the season." All of these senseless sayings we utter that
have no race, creed or color meanings to them. Be assured
that they are senseless when you have no action following the utterance.
A few years ago, one of my best dancing partners in high school lost his wife
of some 30 years. We continued to dance together whenever possible at reunions,
weddings, family gatherings, etc. He had enjoyed an enormously successful mili-
tary career, married a resourceful woman from Thailand, had four children one
of them named after me, I am proud to say. Whern I heard of the death, I called to
see how he was. Minutes into the conversation, he said, "Thank you for not ask-'
ing me, 'What can I do?"' He continued by saying those are the most meaningless
four words, because people say them carelessly, automatically, almost recklessly
without purpose'or intention to act. Why do we say things we do not mean?
I was in Atlanta last week. Whenever I fly, I pack and plan my reading for the
journey as carefully as I do my attire, mainly because I am always behind on my
reading and this is quiet time to peruse in print what the world has on its beautiful
bald head. In one of my stacks, was a small clipping I had saved for something or
with some thought in mind. I have no idea what paper, magazine or book I clipped
it out of, which bothered me some because I write notes all over everything. The
instant I read it, the itch that I wanted to scratch on paper resounded in my spirit
and I remembered that peace must start at home before there is any on earth. The
clipping said this: "The ruin or rise of a nation starts in the homes of its people."
This bears repeating one more time.
It is not enough anymore to just sing about peace. It is not enough anymore to
talk about peace. It is not enough anymore to listen to long speeches and rousing
sermons about peace on earth and good will. Good will. What is that? It is not
enough to point the finger at the state of conflicting conditions on the face of the
earth, when our family and personal lives are in such straight disarray. It is not
enough anymore to point at the media and politics to give us hope for a world of
peace, when you practice road rage every day. Where should our priorities lie? The
issues of misunderstandings, conflict, corruption, barriers and violence reside not
only in every society, on every continent, but in our homes. Do conflict, violence,
barriers, misunderstandings reside in your home? Be careful with your answer, for
this is the future of all humankind.
This season as you hear the music, sing the music, let there be peace in our
homes, in our families, and then, there will be peace on earth.

Did You Hear About?...
December 8, 2007 December 14, 2007
SMarch 21st thru April 19th
Monday through Wednesday, you're trying to
get a jump on the week. You want to get as
much done as possible, and to get ahead with-
out making it look like you're trying too hard.
After all, wouldn't it be great for your reputa-
tion if you could make magic happen and not
break a sweat? You're going to need help, and
you know exactly whom to ask. Motivate them
well. Thursday and Friday, a group meeting
reveals that everyone more or less thinks of
you as being in charge. You're a natural leader.
This weekend, do what you can to shine light
on other people.
April 20th thru May 20th
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are excel-
lent days. Some travel plans get finalized (you
can't wait!), someone who thinks they're much
smarter than you concedes that you were right
and they were wrong about something (your
head's getting big!) and someone you've never
understood explains their side of things (you're
learning!). Thursday and Friday are a little less
than excellent -- a power struggle is in the stars
and your friends are being weird. But Saturday
and Sunday, your friends are back to normal
and one in particular is in need of an update.
Spend an evening together and fill them in.
May 21st thru June 21st
Monday through Wednesday, nothing is as it
seems. You can tell something's up, but that
doesn't help you. Try to draw, people out, but
don't work too hard at it. Some. things take
time. It'll all become clear soon enough. Go
into Thursday and Friday with an open mind,
because something radical is under way, and
you're going to find out about it. The more pre-
pared you are to have your point of view com-
pletely turned around, the better. This week-
end, occupy your brain with something cre-
ative. Postpone all thoughts of math and poli-
tics and communicating with other people
(unless you're thinking about them creatively).
June 22nd thru July 22nd
Monday through Wednesday, you don't partic-
ularly feel like engaging with the rest of the
world. It's all so exhausting and the possibility
of being misunderstood is great. On the other
hand, are you going to let them get to you like
that? No way! Balance is key, especially the
balance between caring what other people
think and not worrying about what other peo-
ple think. Thursday and Friday, everyone
wants to talk about money, but you're a lot
more interested in talking about ideas.
Saturday and Sunday, do something that really lets
your mind wander. Go for a walk. Build a snowman.
S -.' i July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Monday through Wednesday, watch your
words. Something flippant and funny and just
a little biting might really rattle someone --
even if you're absolutely, obviously kidding.
Offhand comments have a way of sinking into
people, and you don't want people you adore
walking around slightly damaged by you.
Thursday and Friday, the thing you're trying
hardest to do might be a waste of your time.
Consider letting go. Saturday and Sunday, as
much as it seems like you should make a
financial decision, put it off until next week.
You're still letting your plan take shape in your mind.
-. I' Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
Monday through Wednesday are your.
reward for weeks of your doing good for
the world; a sudden surge of great stuff
heads your way, most likely in the form
of romance and creative inspiration. Oh,
happy days! Thursday and Friday aren't
explicitly romantic and creative, but the
effects of Monday through Wednesday
last long into the week. You're still walk-
ing on air. You're perhaps even nicer to
people than usual. Saturday and Sunday
are confusing but in a mildly pleasant
way: Sometimes it's nice to be in over
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd
Monday through Wednesday are kind of
gloomy, but not in a very noticeable way. It's
more like an afterthought, a background
thought, a not-all-that-distracting feeling.
Mostly you just feel unbalanced. But don't
worry, because on Thursday and Friday, the
feeling evaporates in the heat of a romantic
bender. And not only are you getting along
fantastically well with you-know-who, but
you're getting along fantastically well with
everyone. Saturday and Sunday, try not to be
swayed by people who don't fully understand
your goals. Your plan is good and right.
Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
Monday through Wednesday draws on your
powers of determination and self-control.
You're under intense scrutiny at work, for
whatever reason. (A promotion on the hori-
zon? You never know.) In any case, you work
incredibly well with other people. This may
explain why everyone wants to be on your
side. If only you were so appreciated at home!
This is a common refrain in your mind, but it's
especially true Thursday and Friday. Expect
something unexpected in the domestic realm.
Saturday and Sunday, all the worries wash
away in a wave of romance.
Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
Monday through Wednesday, you find your
outlook subtly affected by the amount of
money in your wallet. Specifically, you have a
desire to keep more of it in there. It's true that
no amount of money can buy you a good time;
even a day skiing in the most fantastic setting
of all would be for naught if you weren't into it.
Most of the pleasure you get out of the week is
social, and most of your social time is on
Thursday and Friday. You love talking to
someone from a completely different social
group. This weekend, if you feel like you
should leave the house but you don't really
want to, don't.
S Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
Monday through Wednesday is pretty much
what you always want in your workdays: lots
getting done, a happy outlook, high energy,
recognition in the areas where you deserve it.
Of course, the compliments from your good
friends are the ones that mean the most, but
even people you barely know are impressed.
Thursday and Friday you're given to day-
dreaming about the future. You can't help it:
Things look really good from where you are!
Saturday and Sunday, put all of your energy
into something other than work.
Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
From Monday through Wednesday, every fiber
in your being is telling you to climb out of the
cockpit and onto the wing to repair any prob-
lems. But you know full well that you can't
climb out of the cockpit and fix the. wing --
you'll get sucked into outer space! You have to
keep flying the thing. That's the first half of
your week. Again, you want to keep on flying.
On Thursday and Friday, you're in beautiful
territory. Blue skies. Friends nearby. A clear
sense of your future. Saturday and Sunday,
you're trying to reconcile the fantastical stuff
about the world with the everyday.
Feb 19th thru March 20th
Monday through Wednesday, you become the
point person in a group -- it could be cowork-
ers, friends, classmates or acquaintances. The
reason you're perceived as a good person for
everyone else to follow? It's because you seem
to be someone who knows other people,
including influential people, important people:
You know how to use your social capital. On
Thursday and Friday, you dream of being able
to help more people, but that can become a
trap: You can spend so much time on others
that you're distracting yourself from, well ...
yourself. This weekend, turn your focus

A CASE OF TOUGH LOVE? -An officer was
dispatched to the 2500 block of Alden Trace
Blvd. W. regarding a battery inprogress. Upon j
his arrival he met with the victim, Mrs. MA.
She advised that she had been battered by her i: -
son, DAA, suspect. She advised that the suspect
was angry with her for.not separating his sister
from her live-in boyfriend. The victim advised
that the suspect no longer lives with her, but
lives with his Great-Aunt. The victim had a
minor laceration on her knew. She advised that
she received the injury when the suspect pushed her down. She said he also
punched her in her mouth and nose, but there were no visible marks. The officer
made contact with the suspect at the end of the street. He advised that his moth-
er grabbed him first and when he pushed her off of him she fell and scraped her
knee. He advised that he was visiting his mother to get her to reinstate him into
school. and that the residents where she is staying is nothing but "crack-heads"
and that "he didn't want his mother hanging around those people." He was read
his rights and transported to the PTDF.
WHY WAS HE DRESSED AS A FEMALE? -An officer was dispatched to the
2000 block of N. Edgewood Ave. in reference to a retail theft incident that had
just occurred at a clothing store. Upon arrival he made contact with another offi-
cer who stated that a black male had-stolen
several items of clothing from the store and
fled the scene. He also stated that another offi-
S. cer had detained the suspect, along with anoth-
er subject, after locating and stopping their
vehicle, and that he was,transporting them
back to the scene. The first officer on the scene
stated that he made contact with Mr. GC, wit-
ness, who stated that as he was walking in
-.,, front of the store, a black male dressed as a
female asked him to enter the store and tell
another black male to hurry and grab the cloth-
ing items so that they could leave.Mr. GC said
he told the male that he did not want any part of the situation then walked away.
There were several, witnesses, but witness number 4 stated that as she and a
friend were sitting in their vehicle, they observed a black male run out of the
clothing store and enter a green Pontiac car parked next to them. She also stated
that the black male got into the driver's seat and that he had several items of
clothing in his hand as he exited the store, and that the black male that was in the
front passenger's seat appeared to be dressed like a female and was not carrying
any clothing items. When the suspect ran out of the clothing store, the store
owner ran out and attempted to stop him from leaving the scene by grabbing.the
driver's side door and opening it. When the door opened, it struck the passenger
side of her vehicle causing minor damage. She said that's when the suspects fled
the scene. When the officer brought the suspects back to the scene, the one
dressed as a female stated that he did not know what was going on. He stated that
he was sitting in the car while the other suspect went into the store to try to get
his money back for some items that he purchased the other day. He then stated
that he saw the suspect run out of the store and get into the vehicle. The other
suspect stated that he had nothing to say to
the officer and that he would speak to his
lawyer. Both suspects were transported to -
Duval County Jail without incident.
BECAUSE HE CAME HOME LATE -
Officer R.P. was dispatched to the 700 block
of Assisi Ln in reference to a dispute. Victim
Mr. E. stated that the suspect, who he has a
child with, confronted him in the parking lot ,/
because he came home late and she feels he is ft
sleeping with another woman. Suspect Ms.
M.M. came to the car and punched Mr. E. The '
altercation continued inside the apartment, and the suspect continued hitting Mr. E.
Then Ms. M.M. began to throw the victim's clothes down the stairs and Mr. E.
began throwing items back into the apartment that belonged to Ms. M.M. The sus-
pect went to the apartment next door and called the police. The suspect was gone
upon the officer's arrival. Mr. E. was initially uncooperative and said that he did not
call the police. He said that he did not wish to pursue charges against Ms. M.M. But
when asked if he could provide any information to where she was, he said she takes
care of her "granddaddy" somewhere on Dunn Ave, you can't miss her, she has a
tattoo of paws on her right breast like Eve or somebody.
THE BIG PAYBACK -An officer was dispatched to an elementary school where
Ms. M.C. (victim) works as a teacher. The secretary, Ms. C. (witness) stated she
received a call from an unknown tele-
||| phone number and the male sounded
,. .'- .. very upset. The unknown male wanted
to make a complaint on a teacher that
worked at the school, Ms. M.C. (vic-
tim). The caller would not give his
name. Secretary Ms. C. stated that Ms.
M.C. had a boyfriend name Mr. J. that
:, she had a battery report filled out on

Jaguars loss to the
:Colts Sunday stems from
them not earning it,
according to Coach Del
Rio. "I always talk to the
team about you get what
you earn and we did not
do enough to earn a victo-
ry. We're not in it for
moral victories," Del Rio
Coach Del Rio had to
address issues at his
Monday press conference
that included charges that
his team is dumb and that
the Jaguars were blaming
poor officiating for the
loss to the Colts.
columnist on Monday
accused the Jaguars of
being a dumb football
team, using costly penal-
ties the Jaguars committed
on Sunday' as the basis for
his claim. When asked if
he thinks his team is
dumb, Del Rio said: "No.
We have worked hard to
become a smart and tough
football team. I think
we've shown that this
Year. There were a couple
of examples where we
weren't as sharp as we
There were several
decisions and replay
reviews, all of which
seemed to go against the
Jaguars which could point
to the Colts' 28-25 victory.
Del Rio didn't criticize the
officiating in his postgame
press conference, but
defensive end Paul Spicer
was one of a handful of
players who referred to
bad calls working against
the Jaguars' efforts.
."You keep playing.
That's what you do," Del
Rio said when asked on
Monday to comment
about the officiating. "We
got picked but you've got
to be able to fight through
that. They executed beau-
tifully so you have to give
them credit. Everybody
has them (pick plays) in
the league. On their part, it
was well executed. The
responsibility comes to us.
It's not the first one we've
seen and it won't be the
Del Rio and his team
will start focusing on this
Sunday's important home
game against Carolina. At
8-4, the Jaguars are the
leading wild-card .con-
tender but hold only a

Defensive Tackle #99 Marcus Stroud
Returns To Practice
Jaguars defensive tackle Marcus Stroud practiced with his
teammates for the first time since early November. He was
given a four-game suspension for violating the league's steroid
and related substances policy following a positive test for a
Earlier Wednesday, Stroud played dominoes with his
teammates. The three-time Pro-Bowl defender was glad to be
back. Although, he was ready to move on, he was willing to
talk about every aspect of his ordeal. Stroud said the only thing
that he is really concerned about is people thinking he is a cheat. He said, "God gave
me this talent to play football, and I feel like I do it well, and I don't need any juice
or anything else to help me."
Stroud said a doctor in Atlanta gave him the over-the-counter supplements as
part of his rehabilitation from an offseason ankle surgery. Stroud said he checked the
bottle's ingredients with "the little booklet we get from the NFL" and found nothing
illegal. So he was as surprised as anyone when the NFL notified him of his positive
"I'm not here to point fingers at anybody," Stroud said, adding that he has since
severed ties with the doctor. "I made a mistake. I took them. It's on me. It's my
responsibility. All the stuff was stuff out of any nutrition store. It wasn't like I was
going online or going to the Orlando pharmacy."
Stroud said it was the first time in his career he had ever taken a supplement. He
also guaranteed it would be the last. "If I don't take anything, I won't have to worry
about it," Stroud said. "One and done. I'll get my protein from rib meat."
Stroud spent his time away working out in an Atlanta sports gym in hopes that
he will benefit from it. "It gave me a chance to heal up some nicks and hopefully I
can come back fresh and contribute," he said. "Any time you miss something you
love to do, it just makes you focus more and become that much more hungry."
"We anticipate that.he'll be able to jump back in and become part of our rota-
tion," Coach Del Rio said. "We'd like to get him back in there and get him rolling
again."Although Stroud said his troublesome right ankle was no longer an issue and
that he was playing as well as "the dominating tackles in the game," Del Rio dis-
agreed. "He's battling through the issues that he's had health-wise. But no, he's not
back to that level. But I know he's eager to get there. He's working at it."
But, for Stroud, being back was all that mattered. It time to play ball!
