arrested on a charge of obstruction of official business.
The next day he was arrested for violating his probation of an earlier drug charge
and was sent to prison for one year. The child and her infant were immediately taken
from the home. The 11-year-old is living with a relative and the infant is in foster
While in prison, Chaffer was given a DNA test and it was then discovered that he
is the father of the infant.
According to family and the information provided the social workers, the 10-year-
old, who is now eleven, had been abused for a period of time.
What the court is trying to find out is, if the mother was aware of her boyfriend's
The mother is not allowed to see the infant and can only have supervised visits with
her daughter. The sixth grader is allowed to see the infant twice a week but is not
allowed to take care of the infant because she is too young, said the courts.
Chaffer is charged with two counts of rape and one of felonious. assault. He is
accused of raping the child-many times from September 8, 2006 to November 4,
2007. The prosecutors are seeking a life sentence even though that is not the regular
penalty for such an action, they plan to argue that the pregnancy and childbirth for

living in Lockland, Ohio.- Chaffer is in a Columbus jail.
WANTED Continued from A-1
Erica Thomas, 19, has been arrested for the shooting death of a man during a

victim in a Lane Avenue motel room.
Quentin Joyner was arrested for the shooting death of 21-year-old Kevin Jackson

Darryl Green, who was AWOL from the Air Force, was wanted for kidnapping

in Dekalb County, Georgia.
Police in Dekalb also arrested Joshua White, 26, who was baby sitting his girl

White's gun. White was arrested for making a false statement, tampering with evi-
dence and reckless conduct.
GAS Continued from A-1
and reported it. Investigation showed that the station was providing the customers
about one quart less per gallon.
The stations were then closed and the inspectors say that they cannot re-open
until they are able to talk with the owners about the situation. To date, they have
not been able to determine who the real owners are.
Customers have already started to look into the matter to see how much money
they have lost as a result of the stations scam. It is felt that the station will have to
refund customers for the shortage and will also be fined and possibly jailed for the
possible fraudulent.practices. When the Department of Agriculture's Fuel and
measures Section checked the pumps, they found the seals had been broken.

Pastor McKissick is asking ministers to come out and bring their congregation for";
this international broadcast wish is being inaugurated here in Jacksonville. Bishop;j
Greg Davis will kick off this national city tour, which begins in Jacksonville with a
theme, "Committed to Building a Better Jacksonville." Every church and pastor
attending the event, will be recognized on national and international TV. It is imper-
ative that each pastor call and tell Tiffany Tisdale, (904) 354-1464 of their inten-
tions so that recognition can be made. This is a positive move for Jacksonville and:,
all are encouraged to participate.
Money Continued from
an additional $300 per child. In some cases, there is a rebate bonus for children.
But not all kids. For rebate purposes, a qualifying child is one who is younger than
17. Older college students will not get the extra money. Others left out the rebate
are nonresident aliens and trusts and estates.
Wealthier taxpayers will also have rebate limits if you are a single filer with an
adjusted gross income orAGI of more than $75,000 or more than $150,000 for
married couples filing jointly.
IRS said there is nothing you can do expedite your rebate. Just fill out your 2007
return as usual, and wait.
For most filers, this year's rebate will appear as a simple gift from the govern-
ment and will be tax-free. Therefore, you will not have to claim it on your 2008
tax return. But filers will have to reconcile any money they receive this year when
they file their 2008 returns.
"It harks back to the 2001 situation when we got the new 10 percent bracket and
got an advance check for that. Then on next return had to account for it," says
Luscombe "It's expected to be that way this time."
The 2008 tax forms should have a line for the new credit. When calculating
taxes next year, taxpayers will have to subtract what they got as a rebate check the
IRS expects the checks to

CHILD CARE CREDENTIAL AWARD
Ms. Felmon J. Swindle of Jacksonville has been awarded a Child Development
Associate (CDA) Credential in recognition of outstanding work with young children.
The credential was awarded by the Council for Professional Recognition in Washington
D.C., which represents the early childhood education profession.
CDA is the only major national effort to improve early childhood education and care
by evaluation and recognition the skills of individuals providing care. The first
Credential was awarded over 30 years ago, and now 49 states plus the District of
Columbia include CDA in their childcare licensing regulations.
Parents who use early education and care are especially concerned today about their
children's welfare. With this in mind, as part of the CDA assessment process, every can-
lidate for the CDA Credential is observed working with young children or families by
in early childhood professional. In addition, the candidate must demonstrate the ability
to work with families to develop children's physical and intellectual capabilities in a safe
and healthy learning environment.
The CDA Credential is having a positive effect on the quality of early childhood edu-
cation and care. Its impact is evident in center-based and home visitor programs as, as
well as family childcare, the most common form of care for children under 5 years old.
Childcare staff and parents wanting information on CDA should write to the Council
for Professional Recognition at 2460 16th St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20009-3575, or
call the Council at (202) 265-9090 or (800) 424-4310.

S Did You Hear About?...
An officer was dispatched to the 3100 block of
Division St., in reference to a disturbance incident.
Upon his arrival he met with Mr. SL. A state com-
puter check of Mr. SL revealed an outstanding
arrest warrant that occurred last week when an offi-
cer was dispatched to another residence in the *
3100 block of Division St. in response to an unver-
ified 911 call. Upon his arrival he met with Ms. LY
(victim), who stated her ex-boyfriend hit her. Ms.
LY informed the officer that Mr. SL, suspect, came
over to her house that evening and began arguing
with her. She further stated that Mr. SL spit on her and hit her while in the front yard.
She attempted to call 911 and during the struggle, Mr. SL ripped the phone from her
hand. She also stated that Mr. SL threw a beer bottle at her during the incident. Ms.
LY informed the officer that she has an injunction for protection against Mr. SL. The
injunction states that Mr. SL, suspect, shall have no contact with Mr. LY, the victim.
On this day, the suspect was not at the scene upon the officer's arrival. The area was
canvassed with negative results. Prior to completion of the initial report, the suspect
returned to the victim's residence and again continued to harass her. The officer
went back to the victims's residence and the suspect had already left. While the offi-
cer was writing the second report, a third call was made to report the suspect as the
victim's residence. The officer arrived at the victim's home and the suspect was
Gone again. The officer spoke with the victim's hus-
S band, Mr. KS and he stated-that he saw the suspect
and heard the suspect at the door. Mr. KS told the
: officer that he opened the door and the suspect took

ANOTHER DISTURBANCE ON DIVISION
An officer was dispatched to the 6100 of Division
St. in reference to a disturbance. Upon his arrival, he observed the defendant loiter-
ing on the property, then attempt to walk off as he pulled up to the business. The
officer detained the defendant and asked him for identification. The defendant stat-
ed he had no identification. The officer asked him for his name and date of birth,
and he identified himself as Mr. KR, born in August of 1957. The officer contacted
the store owner Mr. IS, who stated the male has trespassed before. The officer
obtained the information from the trespass database which identified the defendant
as another person with a different birthdate. The information was verified through
JPICS and D.A.V.I.D. Post Miranda, the defendant stated he gave me a false name
because he did not want to go to jail. He also stated he was only on the property
waiting for a ride. The defendant was transported to the PTDF.
PROPERTY CHECK -An officer was dispatched to the 1100 block ofW. 23rd St.,
for a property check. He was directed to assist two other officers investigating an
incident complaint which stated that
people trespass in vacant and con-
demned houses in the 1200 block of W.
26th St. The officers entered the con-
demned residence in the 1200 block of
W. 26th St. The house was condemned
in January 2008 6y the Property Safety
Division at the City of Jacksonville. The
residence had signs visibly posted
which stated that it was condemned and
unlawful to be on the premises. When
the officers searched the interior of the
residence, that found the suspect sitting
on a couch in the living room. They
took the defendant into custody and read him his Miranda rights. Afterwards, the
defendant said that he asked an unknown black female at the residence if he could
come in out of the rain, and she let him in. The defendant said that he went in the
front door, but did not see the posted signs. The defendant was placed under arrest
and transported to PDF.
DOMESTIC BATTERY -An officer was dispatched to the 1600 block ofW. State
St. in reference to a domestic battery. Upon his arrival, he met with the victim Ms.
RC. The victim and the suspect have been living together for about two years. They

She stated they were arguing and he head butted her in front of his friends. The vic-
tim stated that the suspect hit her so hard she saw stars. The victim then walked
down the street and called the police. The officer observed a big lump on the vic-
tim's forehead. The victim did not want rescue to respond. The officer went down
to the address to make contact with the suspect and as he approached the house, the
suspect attempted to run back into the house and close the door. The officer had to
push the door open to gain entry into the house. The suspect then ran to the back of
the house and he attempted to run out the back door. The officer had to restrain the
suspect and handcuff him. As the officer was walking the suspect out of the house,
Ythe suspect broke free and ran down the street.
SThe suspect was apprehended a few yards from
Sthe house. The suspect stated prior to his
S Miranda warning, "I did that last night, not
today." The officer then read him his rights.

night, the only reason she called today is, I told
S her to get out of my house." The officer was
.;- ..unable to locate any of the suspect's friends
". who observed the battery. E.T. responded and
took photographs of the victim's injuries. The

ins Bud Shootout at Daytona
: International Speedway
It has been 62 races -- the Crown Royal 400 at Richmond on May 6, 2006, to be
exact -- since Earnhardt has driven to Victory Lane in a Cup points event. Junior
ditched the company his father built (for many good reasons) in favor of the most
powerful organization in NASCAR today in Hendrick, with the idea that Earnhardt
would be able to step in and begin winning again immediately.
That is precisely what Earnhardt did last Saturday night, out-dueling Tony Stewart
down the stretch at Daytona with a little help from behind from one of his new team-
mates and presumably his newest best friend, two-time defending points champion
Gabi DiCarlo qualifying in 25s
