Community Wants to Understand the Justice and the Injustice
Joel Abner, 18,
No one has said that Joel Abner, 18, was acting in an honorable manner when he
was killed by Officer Jared Reston after allegedly shooting the officer several times.
What.they are concerned about is the fact that Christopher D. Smith, 19 and Abner

UniverSoul Continued from A-1
Named one of the Top 10 "Most Requested Family Attractions" by Ticketmaster in
2007, the world-renowned UniverSoul Circus unveils a new production, "Jabulani:
Joy, Laughter, Happiness" (pronounced JA-BOO-Lani), in Jacksonville, FL, on
Wednesday, February 6-Sunday February 10 at the Golfair/Kings Flea Market park-
ing lot. Show times are Wednesday-Friday 10:30am and 7:30pm, Saturdays, 12pm,
4:30pm and 8pm and Sundays, 1pm, 3:30pm and 6:30pm. Ticket prices range from
$10-$27 and all 10:30am shows are $10. Along with Jacksonville, the circus, now
in its 15th season, will hit 27 markets including the circus' hometown of Atlanta,
New York, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles. The Wall Street Journal dubbed the
UniverSoul Circus "Pride, Joy and Hip-Hop Under the Big Top" and Newsweek
described it as "the only place you can watch...a Chinese bungee-jumping troupe.
sailing through the air to the hip-hop grooves of Outkast."
"The world has discovered through the global impact of Black culture the essence
of who we are. Whether it's our business savvy, spending power, creativity, intelli-
gence or spirituality. The UniverSoul Circus is an expression of our experience set
under the big top and is the ideal opportunity for families of all ethnicities to partic-
ipate in a cultural exchange that the entire family can enjoy," said UniverSoul Circus
owner Cedric Walker.
"Jabulani" promises 10 never seen before exhilarating multicultural acts from
around the globe performing to R&B, Hip-Hop, Gospel and Funk. Some of the acts
include: a three-man comedy trapeze troupe from South Africa, 14 male acrobats
from China performing daredevil tricks between two vertical poles, a romantic silk
aerial act with performers from Brazil and New Zealand, two kid contortionists from
Guinea who twist their bodies in jaw-dropping positions, daring acrobatic feats on
horseback by a cross-cultural group of men from Kazakhstan, Russia and Gabon,
Africa, a moving spiritual number by identical twin male mimes who are the origi-
nators of "gospel miming" from Pittsburgh and international clowns who love to
interact with the audience. Returning as Ringmaster is Memphis' own Tony Tone
along with his sidekick Zeke from Cleveland, OH who share words of hope and
inspiration between acts.

Civil Rights Restoration Public Service Announcement
Are you eligible to have your civil rights restored? Or do you know
someone who may be eligible? Governor Crist and his board passed new
rules, which improve the civil restoration of rights process. Persons, who
have previously been convicted of felonies, may now be eligible to
regain the right to vote, right to serve on a jury, the right to hold public
office and the right to apply for occupational licenses.
Lawyers and other community leaders will conduct a free workshop on
Saturday, February 9, 2008 from 9 am to 2pm at the Supervisor of
Elections Gateway location, 5200-2 Norwood Avenue. There will also
be a job fair and other services available. Please call Senator Hill's office
at 924-1646 for more information.
Shoplifting Continued from A-1
and many in the community say it is puzzling that in this situation, why is it that the
male who had been known to be nice but possibly a drug user, change his behavior?
They can't understand what happened to cause him to start shooting at the officer.
What is most disturbing they say, is that Smith, who was with Abner when they
visited Belk's and both took items without paying for them, how Smith could only
be charged with petty theft and resisting a merchant for allegedly stealing a T-shirt.
Smith has been released on a $10,000 bond. In other such situations, when two or
more people begin an offense while together, both are charged for the crime, espe-
cially in a case where an officer or someone was injured
The question in this situation was very puzzling. Is this a sign of injustice in the
Jacksonville justice system? An officer was shot. Why is Smith only charged with
a misdemeanor when he and his friend were originally together in an offense?
Normally, they would both be considered. as partners in crime.
Why is this different? The community wants answers.

system. Richard Burton, chairman of the NAACP Prisoner Rights Sub-Committee
feels that intervention is very much needed. He said he has spent over 29 years
working as a school and community worker, dealing with many many social issues
and what happened in that court room is child abuse. Larry did say that he was pres-
ent when Glover sold the gun to Tony. The Assistant State Attorney said because
Glover was 23 and Youman was 12, he is responsible for the child's death.

2. Commission missionaries to serve as advocates and ombudsmen for black and,,
Latino juveniles in the courts. Such missionaries would work closely with probation
officers, law enforcement officials, and youth streetworkers to assist at-risk youth,;
and their families. They would also convene summit meetings between school super--;
intendents, principals of public middle and high schools, and black and Latino pas-
tors to develop partnerships that will focus on the youth most at-risk. We propose to
do pastoral work with the most violent and troubled young people and their families.
In our judgement this is a rational alternative to ill-conceived proposals to substitute :
incarceration for education.
3. Commission youth evangelists to do street-level one-on-one evangelism with
youth involved in drug trafficking. These evangelists would also work to prepare
these youth for participation in the economic life of the nation. Such work might
include preparation for college, the development of legal revenue-generating enter-
prises, and acquisition of trade skills and union membership.
4. Establish accountable, community-based economic development projects that go
beyond "market and state" visions of revenue generation. Such an economic devel-
opment initiative will include community and trusts, microenterprise projects, work-
er cooperatives, and democratically run community development corporations.
5. Establish links between suburban and downtown churches and front-line min-
istries to provide spiritual, human resource, and material support.
6. Initiate and support neighborhood crime-watch programs within local church
neighborhoods. If, for example, 200 churches covered the four corners surrounding
their sites, 800 blocks would be safer.
7. Establish working relationships between local churches and community-based
health centers to provide pastoral counseling for families during times of crisis. We.
also propose the initiation of drug abuse prevention programs and abstinence-orient-
ed educational programs focusing on the prevention of AIDS and sexually transmit-
8. Convene a working summit meeting for Christian black and Latino men and
women in order to discuss the development of Christian brotherhoods and sister-
hoods that would provide rational alternatives to violent gang life. Such groups
would also be charged with fostering responsibility to family and protecting houses
9. Establish rape crisis drop-in centers and services for battered women in church-
es. Counseling programs must be established for abusive men, particularly teenagers
and young adults.
10. Develop an aggressive black and Latino curriculum, with an additional focus on
the struggles of women and poor people. Such a curriculum could be taught in
churches as a means of helping our youth understand that the God of history has been
and remains active in the lives of all people.

Lydia Estates Seasonal Traditions
By Marsha Dean Phelts .' ,
Serene and beautiful Lydia Estates is among the residential" "
jewels found in Jacksonville's north side. Since its development
over ten years ago, a great portion of residents in Lydia Estates has
come to this community from cosmopolitan regions around the
country. A segment of this enclave includes locals who have spent .
their lifetime in the city, as well as several who have returned after I U ,
retiring from metropolitan areas that afforded better economical ".
opportunities than found in Jacksonville. Robert (Bob) Lee, for- ..
merly of Detroit is president of the neighborhood association. All
during the year Lydia Estates residents come together monthly for ,\ ii,

The Mayor's Desk i I
Violent crime is a critical problem in k
Jacksonville. It robs families and neighbor-
hoods of their loved ones and their peace of
mind, and it threatens our work to grow\ jobs
and increase prosperity for e erN one in our city. -
This is an enormous challenge, but go% ernment .
and public safety officials cannot solve it alone.
To face it. \\e must all act together, and \ve must
The most immediate response to crime is Mayor John Peyton
stepping up law enforcement, and that is why I
asked the Jacksonville City Council to direct $3 million from our city's emer-
gency reserve accounts to JSO to fund overtime for police working in the parts of
Jacksonville most affected by violent crime. When we undertook this effort two
summers ago, we saw results, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to stop the
violence right now.
However, short-term efforts only address the symptoms of crime. Those of us
outside the justice system must work together to prevent crime in the first place.
That is why I initiated The Jacksonville Journey: Take a Step, a comprehensive,
communitywide anti-crime effort. The action group of community leaders,
activists and subject matter experts that make up The Jacksonville Journey are
uniting to implement crime-fighting and prevention, targeted intervention and
Preventing violent crime begins at home and in our neighborhoods. The
Neighborhood Safety and Stability Committee of The Jacksonville Journey,
chaired by Tony Boselli, is already working to direct more funding to existing pro-
grams and connect residents with valuable resources to make Jacksonville's
homes, streets and communities safe for everyone.
We know that there are other steps we can take right now to make neighbor-
hoods safer. And we will add lights or increase the wattage of lights in neighbor-
hoods experiencing a high volume of crime, starting with Eureka Gardens and its
surrounding areas. Plans to repair and replace sidewalks in those same areas are
also in the works.
While the lighting and sidewalk efforts will commence immediately, this com-
mittee will focus on several other areas in the upcoming weeks, including: form-
ing partnerships to reopens closed community centers, taking back high school
sports, hosting a crime seminar with the Reverend Eugene Rivers of the National
Ten Point Leadership Foundation, and establishing crime-free multifamily hous-
ing. The committee will also explore increasing the use of the Drug Abatement
Response Team (DART), in conjunction with JSO, expanding neighborhood
walks, addressing foreclosures and improving code enforcement.
The full results of this investment in our neighborhoods, and the work of the
other Journey committees, will not be seen tomorrow. Some won't even be seen
next year. But they will play a central role in our city's long-term response to
crime. We are planting seeds today that will grow into peace, prosperity and safe-
ty in the years to come, and we look to every resident for their support and partic-

THEFT UNDER $75 An officer was dispatched
to a department store located in the 9700 block of
Atlantic Blvd. in reference to a theft. Upon his
arrival he met with Mr. A, the witness/complainant
Mr. A stated that he observed Ms. M, suspect #1
and Ms. C, suspect #2 walking around the store.
Suspect #1 selected several items and removed the
security tags and placed them into Suspect #2's
purse. The suspects attempted to leave the store
when Mr. A, the witness apprehended them.
Suspect #1 stated she did not steal anything nor did
she remove any tags from any of the items.
Suspect #2 stated she did not have the items in her bag when she walked out of the
store. She said she did not have any money to pay for them. A search of Suspect #2's
purse revealed four items without tags and she could not come up with a receipt.
Also, a pry, which was used to move the tags from the items was inside the purse.
Suspect #2 was eligible for an NTA and was issued one. Suspect #1 was arrested and
transported to PTDF. The items that were taken totaled $74.81.
BAD CHECK -An officer was dispatched to the 4000 block of Post St. in reference
to a suspect cashing a bad check. Upon his arrival, he observed Mr. H, the suspect,
standing at the window of the business. He spoke with Mr. B, the complainant, who
stated the suspect came up to the window and presented the check and attempted to
cash it. He stated he observed that the check was
not signed by the account holder Ms. G, the victim,
and that there was no date on the check. He stated

STOLEN CHECKS -An officer was dispatched to the 2300 block of Grunthal St.,
regarding theft and forgery of checks. Upon his arrival, he met with the victim, Mr.
TP, who stated that his friend had stolen his checks and cashed them. Mr. TP stated
that he let the suspect live with him and his wife because she had no where to live.
Mr. TP further stated that he had a negative account balance, which prompted him
to call his bank. During the investigation, the officer made contact with the suspect,
Ms. SH, who admitted she had taken the
checks and cashed them. She also stated
that one of the checks was cashed by
another suspect, Mr. AS. The suspect
stated that she did not know where Mr.
AS lived. After being transported to the
burglary officer she was inviewied by

When he did, he was handcuffed and placed into the patrol car and was advised of
his rights. He stated that he did take some food items from the store and did not pay.
He said that he and his girlfriend was arguing and he got upset with her and he
pushed the times past the register and exited the store without paying for them. He
stated that he realized what he did, but was scared to go back in the store with the
items, so he left. In addition, the suspect did not have a drivers license or identifica-
tion. Upon conducting a D.L. inquiry, it was determined that his privileges were sus-
pended for failing to pay two fines. He stated that he was unaware of the suspen-
sions. He was booked in to the jail without incident.

SWednesday, when the winners of the Fifth Annual FedEx Air
and Ground NFL players of the year were awarded, Fred
Taylor was the man.
Jaguar's running back, Fred Taylor #28, earned his first trip
to the Pro Bowl this year, and now he'll have some braging
rights to take along to Hawaii with him.
Taylor was named the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the
Year and quarterback Brett Favre, of the Green Bay Packers,,
was named the FedEx Express NFL Player of the Year.
FedEx is donating $25,000 to the local children's hospitals in each player's area
in honor of their great plays. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation and
Wolfson Children's Hospital (Baptist) will receive the donations. Phoenix
Children's Hospital Foundation in Arizona will also receive a $25,000 donation dur-
ing the week of Super Bowl XLII.
Taylor led the Jaguars to an 11-5 record and the No. 5 seed in the AFC by rush-
ing for 1,202 yards (fifth in the AFC, ninth in the league) over only 223 carries (5.4
average) and scoring five touchdowns.
He helped the Jaguars finish strong by finishing the season with five 100+ yard
games in weeks 12-16, with one of his best performances coming at Pittsburgh,
where he rushed for 147 yards over 25 carries and scoring one touchdown to beat
the Steelers 29-22.
This season, Taylor became the 21st running back in history with 10,000 yards
rushing (10,715). He also made nine receptions for 58 yards. Taylor was nominated
for two FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week awards in 2007, in which he won
one of them.
There were six finalists chosen by a panel of NFL experts, steaming from more
than 1 million fan votes casted at NFL.com from January 8th through January 23rd.

Rolex 24 is underway in Daytona -While the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway is not
a NASCAR race it certainly does have a number of NASCAR drivers competing. Jeff Gordon's team
started the race in second. Jimmie Johnson's team was third and Bobby Labonte's team was seventh
when the green flag flew on Saturday afternoon. Other NEXTEL Cup drivers in the field include Juan
Pablo Montoya, Tony Stewart, Boris Said, Bill Lester and Wally Dallenbach.
2007 NEXTEL Cup rookie Juan Pablo Montoya currently holds the overall lead as we are just 2
1/2 hours into the 24 hour event. Jeff Gordon suffered an early electrical problem that has him a bit
off the pace. Jimmie Johnson is running fourth overall as he is taking his first shift behind the wheel.

'91, and finished fifth in Heisman Trophy balloting as a junior in 1991. Shane
played in the NFL from 1993 to 2006 for th e Chicago Bears, Carolina Panthers,
Washington Redskins, Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, and Miami Dolphins.
During his NFL career, Shane completed 492 of 839.pass attempts for 4,756 and

Take Stock in Children
Senior students that are enrolled in the Take Stock in Children
program for the Jacksonville area.
John O'Connor, news anchor for WTEV CBS47
and a Take Stock in Children mentor, welcomed the
2008 Unsung Heroes. The event was entertained
by the LaVilla Middle School Jazz Band and
Marquise Braithwaite and Shantelle Ortiz shared
the podium with O'Connor who were later joined
by the 80 seniors who will graduate from high
school this year and follow their dreams to college.
Ridge Sink, a venture partner of Outback
Steakhouse created the event eight years ago and is
now joined with Florida Lottery as an annual spon-
sor. Take Stock in Children is first and foremost a
mentoring program that uniquely provides a col-
lege scholarship to students when they enter the
program in middle school. A mentor spends one
hour a week in school, with one student, for at least
one school year. Over the years, many companies
and donors have lent their support to Take Stock in
Children such as Jacksonville Children's
Commission, Starbucks Coffee Company, Florida
Lottery, and Outback Steakhouse.
Awards for 2008 for those organizations who
joined in partnership with Take Stock in Children
went to Aetna, Greene-Hazel& Associates and
Bethel Baptist Institutional Church.
It was noted that there are more than 7,000 mid-
dle school students qualified for this program but
only 500 are presently in the program. They are
asking for more mentors as they recognized those
who are presently serving.
