A teenage girl arrived home in the 11000 block of
Harts Road and discovered her father and a friend, shot
to death. Dead were John Paul Stoner, 41 and Lenard
Davis, 69. The incident was a total shock to the teen
and the neighbors, who felt they were in a relatively
safe neighborhood.
The teen got off the bus after school and entered the
home, finding her father and the other man shot to
death. It was not determined how long the men had
been dead. The teen moved with her mother, after this
incident.

Kenyatta D. Brown,
35, Suspect McConihe Street. The girl was at

Hillary Rodham Clinton Sex,

Bad Judgement, Consequences

by: Lonzie Leath, The Florida and Georgia Star
Sen. Clinton's theme is: It took a Clinton to clean up
the White House after the first Bush and it is going to
take a Clinton to clean up the mess the other Bush has l
made. And with that, she raised $3 million online since
Tuesday when she was able to convince voters that she
is the bgst person to represent America since (1) she is a
woman and normally it is the mother who responds to
emergencies at 3 o'clock in the morning, and (2) as far Senator Obama and Senator
as she knows, Sen. Obama is not a Muslim even though Clinton during a debate.
he wore native wear when he visited his father's home-
land, Kenya, including a head wrap. Of course, she has more experience to run the
country even though she has held only one political position and don't leave out the
fact that she is around 60 and he is 46.
What Clinton failed to mention is that it is because of the Clintons that there is a
Bush in the White House and this country is in the shape it is in today.
Now, how will she manage this country? Will it be in the same vicious, conniving
way she handled this weekend? She received the majority votes in Texas, Ohio and
Rhode Island because she received more media exposure. However, she did not get
the majority delegates. How did she profit from this in a manner that slipped passed
the American people? Her fund raising efforts are far below Obama's and she proud-
ly told the American people that she spent half of the money Obama spent for this
portion of her campaign. She claimed innocent as a picture was shown constantly
on the air and over the Internet in a negative manner regarding Obama by saying he
was a Muslim because he wore local attire that was presented as a gift while visit-
ing his father's country. She appeared on several talk shows as well as Saturday

Beating Suspect mer Robinson, took his
wallet and then locked
him in his bedroom by using a padlock to keep the door
locked. Lewis said that Robinson started hitting him
with the hammer many times. He does not know how many
times he had been hit but realized that he was out for about
eight hours.
Lewis is still in the hospital and Robinson has been arrest-
ed.
When Lewis awoke from the beating, about eight hours
after the attack he was able to get the telephone and dial 911.
The entire 911 call was kept by the Police Department. The
residents in the area said they were very sorry and they were
apologetic to him for the beating.
Other neighbors advised that they were sorry for what hap-
pened to Mr. Lewis and joined in apologizing to Mr. Lewis.
They also advised that the area had not been involved in any
incidents.
Willie Robinson is being held without bond. The report
did not say if the hammer had been confiscated and if
Robinson tried to justify his actions.

Cutting Out Slum Lords in

Brunswick
Commissioner James Brooks said
he was appalled when he visited cer-
tain areas in Dixville and other parts
of Brunswick and observed how
some of the rental property was not
being taken care of. He said some
commissioner homes were worst than what one
James Brooks would expect in a Third World coun-
try.
Brooks explained that he visited one property and
excess from the bathroom was being sent through a
floor or bathroom fixtures and going down a trench,
opened to others in a ditch like setting. Because of this,
Brooks activated an ordinance for rental property own-
ers to get a business license. The license would allow
the city to organize inspections and fine slum lord
abusers if the property does not provide the necessary
repairs.within a reasonable time frame. The ordinance
would require semi annual inspections.

CLARA'S AT THE CATHEDRAL
TRAINS 50!


The Clara White Mission, Inc. is pleased to announce
that more than 50 students have successfully completed
training at "Clara's at the Cathedral" Cafe, and graduated
from the Culinary Arts program. A total of 237 students
have graduated from the program since its inception in
2003; 60% of those graduates are currently working in the
field. Eurist is the largest employer of Clara's graduates, but
the Mission works with 58 employment partners in the
Jacksonville area.
Clara's opened to the Jacksonville public in March of
2007, and continues to provide fine cuisine in an elegant
setting through its partnership venture with the historic St.
Johns Cathedral. The cafe is an outgrowth of the Mission's
model culinary arts school, providing hands-on, 'front of
the house' training for the culinary students. Clara's also
generates financial support for the culinary program, a par-
ticularly effective strategy in light of recent budget cuts.
Each Friday in the spectacular gothic setting of St.
John's Taliaferro Hall, student waiters serve up sumptuous
five-star fare to the strains of a live violin or piano serenade.
From cooking to presentation, to service, students gain real
life experience through the community's patronage, while
learning skills in the hospitality industry. Weekly menus are
available in advance, online at www.clarawhitemission.org
Lunch is served every Friday from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00
p.m. Take-out service is also available for a donation of
$7.50. All proceeds from the cafe will benefit Clara White
Mission Programs.
Clara's at the Cathedral is located at 256 East Church St.
in downtown Jacksonville. For additional information call

"There's Always Something
Happening On The First Coast"
The Simmons Pediatrics' Annual
Honor Roll Party
Each year Dr. Charles Simmons, III of Simmons
Pediatrics celebrates the accomplishments of his patients
with a party. The party is for his patients who have made the
A/B Honor Roll. This year, the sixth of the parties was given
at Dave and Busters. Over forty children and their parents
attended the party where each of the children was presented
medallions by Dr. Simmons. The medallions were very nice
and the big treat for the young people was the tokens to play
the bevy of games found at Dave and Busters along with the
great food.
Dr. Simmons stated, "we wanted to celebrate the hard
work and dedication of the youngsters in maintaining excel-
lent grades in school."
What an excellent incentive!

Where Are All the African Americans in

International Affairs? A Tribute to Ralph


Bunche
Images of the genocide
in Darfur, starvation across
the globe, and the
HIV/AIDS pandemic enter
our living rooms almost
every night.
In almost every region of
the world, conflict, extreme
poverty and disease chal-
lenge our humanity and
demand a global response.
For some Americans, these
images are too close to
home; for others, they're too
far away. Unfortunately, the
troubled, desperate faces we
see are more often than not
black and brown.
Yet, few of those setting
international .public policy
or providing humanitarian
relief are people of color.
The United Negro College
Fund Special Programs
Corporation (UNCFSP) is
working to change this.
A hallmark of UNCFSP
is the Institute for
International Public Policy
(IIPP), a prestigious five-
year fellowship program
aimed at increasing the
number of minority college
students choosing careers in
international affairs.
The fellowship was
inspired by the triumphs of
Ralph Bunche, a diplomat
and political scientist who
was a key figure on the
world stage when Jim Crow
ruled America. A black man
born just 39 years after slav-
ery's end, Bunche had little
expectation that his accom-
plishments would change
the course of global affairs.
Yet, in a career that
spanned more than 40 years,
this pioneer went on to
amass one astounding
achievement after the other:-
serving as a senior social'
analyst at the Office of
Strategic Services, the fore-
runner of the CIA, during
World War II; leading the
United Nation's successful
efforts to mediate peace
between Israel and Palestine
in the late '40's And chair-
ing the political science
department at Howard
University from 1928 to
1950.
As a result of his efforts
overseas, in 1950, he was
awarded the Nobel Peace
Prize-- becoming the first-
ever African American
recipient. A decade later in
1963, President Lyndon
Johnson awarded Bunche
the Presidential Medal of
Freedom for his internation-
al work, the highest civilian
commendation in the United
States.
However, more than half
a century after Bunche's
Nobel Prize, it's still uncom-
mon to find people of color
in careers impacting the
global stage. Few members
of minority groups work for
humanitarian relief organi-
zations or train to become
leaders in international
careers, such as banking,
policymaking, and educa-
tion.
However, as IIPP
Director, Darryl Crompton,
says, "The field of interna-
tional affairs and public pol-
icy has never been more
exciting, or more important.
We're helping tomorrow's
minority leaders in global
affairs to define their goals
and acquire the skills they
need to achieve them."
Now entering its 14th
year, the IIPP has placed
almost 300 minority stu-
dents in over 50 countries
across the world to study


global issues and gain


hands-on experience
through a series of activi-
ties, such as summer inter-
national policy institutes,
foreign language instruc-
tion, study abroad, intern-
ships and funding for a mas-
ter's degree in international
affairs; each fellowship is
valued at nearly $100,000.
Dewardric McNeal has
chosen to walk down this
path. He's black, male and
fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
When asked if he knows
other young black men also
fluent in Mandarin, the IIPP
alumnus rolls off the names
of five others-all men he
met through the IIPP pro-
gram. McNeal, who gradu-
ated from the program 10
years ago, learned about the
fellowship from one of his
Morehouse College profes-
sors.
"My professor saw that I
had a keen interest in Asia
and encouraged me to focus
on China, foreseeing that
China was on the rise."
Growing up on a U.S. Air
Force base in Germany, he
developed an early interest
in international affairs.
"My early exposure to
the global community had
an influence. I was particu-
larly fascinated with events
in Asia because my uncle
served in Viet Nam and lost
his life there."
During his IIPP fellow-
ship, this "Morehouse Man"
studied Chinese politics,
culture and language at the
University of London's
School of Oriental and
African Studies and at
Nanjing University in
China. Today, he serves as
assistant director for inter-
national programs at the
Brookings Institution's John
L. Thornton China Center.
If black men in the inter-
national arena are few and
far between, women of
color are largely absent.
Enter, Paige Hendrix, a
woman who was selected as
an IIPP Fellow during the
summer of 2006. An inter-
national affairs and geogra-
phy major at the University
of Missouri-Columbia
(MU), Hendrix wanted to
spend her sophomore year
abroad in either Switzerland
or the Middle East.
"I come from a small
town in the Missouri
Ozarks. The IIPP offered a
complete change of cul-
tures." Hendrix opted to
study in Dubai, "to get off
the beaten path."
While in Dubai, Hendrix


got involved in helping the
first women's shelter in the
city to raise money, reflect-
ing her longstanding pas-
sion for women's issues. At
MU, she co-founded Stop
Traffic, a student organiza-
tion that informs people
about human trafficking-a
practice in which mostly
women arid children, are
forced into labor and/or sex-
ual exploitation.
When Hendrix graduates
from college this spring, she
plans to join Teach for
America in our nation's cap-
ital. Her goal is to inspire
young people to see the
world beyond their back-
yards. With passion, she
says, "I want to expose chil-
dren from low-income
backgrounds to the world of
international relations."
The reality of day-to-day
life is harsh for many people
of color around the globe.


Life


expectancy in


Botswana is 31 years of age;
in Kenya it's 45. Every hour
.in Bangladesh, three women
die in childbirth. Every sec-
ond in a developing country
a child dies of hunger-relat-
ed causes.
Regarded as a visionary,
Ralph Bunche recognized
the need for America to
develop a pool of African
American talent capable of
responding directly to inter-
national crises.
These "ambassadors"
would represent America's
diversity and lend credibili-
ty to our efforts as we reach
out to the global communi-
ty.
How to Apply:
Recently, the IIPP kicked
off an initiative to increase

Hillary Continued from A-1
Night Live during the weekend. In addition, her husband, Former President Bill
Clinton visited a major church in Dallas and Houston. Added to that, the media, as
part of their news stories, showed multiple times, the commercial regarding who will
answer the phone at 3:00 a.m.while young children sleep, as if she would, not the
White House operators. Now bear in mind, the commercial was shown, not as a paid
commercial but as part of a news story free. In fact, it is estimated that she received
about 70% more air time this past weekend, free, than Obama received, paid. And
to make the media fear commenting on the multiple free air time, Saturday Night
Live segments were also aired several times, including the segment alluding to the
media giving Obama 'special' treatment.
Hillary's experience in making judgements
Former President William Clinton's sexual encounters was always a factor in their
life but she made a decision to marry him and stand by him, making him only the
second president of the United States to be impeached. His impeachment is a
result of sex and lies and they as a couple, have throughout their life together, dealt
with this problem. Her decision to continue with him as an enabler while continu-
ing her goals in life and helping him move up to the highest position in this coun-
try, in spite of his inability to control his sex life, is a strong factor in what caused
the United States to be in a war and in a recession.
Hillary Clinton knows that Mr. Obama is a Christian and she knows he has polit-
ical experience just as she knows that he knows how to make creditable decisions.
She alluded to Obama's real estate relationship and maybe feel Americans have
forgotten about White Water.
Hillary's Political History
Hillary Clinton could not get her Health Care Reform before a Democratic
Congress for a vote. Her female Attorney General and her proposed female
Attorney Generals had difficulty; Her former law partner that she had recommend-
ed to serve in the Department of Justice was later imprisoned and her other law
partner allegedly committed suicide. Clinton's third recommended partner was,
forced to resign after he was approved. Another recommended partner could not
pass FBI investigation and her one notable vote as a senator was to support the
plan to invade Iraq.
More
Hillary was a Goldwater Girl in 1963 even though she claims she was part of an
audience to hear Dr. King speak in 1963. She was the leader of the Young
Republicans at Wellesley College and had her thesis sealed from the public after
her husband became president.
The consequences of Senator Hillary Clinton's, experience and judgement has not
proven to be good for America. So, do we need a Bush, a Clinton, a Bush and
again, a Clinton after 20 years to be stuck with another four or more? It is time for
a change!

FAMU/BCU PRESIDENTS STATE THAT
THE FLORIDA CLASSIC IS HERE TO
STAY IN ORLANDO


ORLANDO, Fla. Florida A&M University and Bethune-Cookman University
released the following statement regarding the Title Sponsorship of the Florida
Classic that draws well over 60,000 people from all over the nation to participate in
the largest historically black college or university (HBCU) Classic.
In a joint statement, Dr. James H. Ammons, President of Florida A&M
University, and Dr. Trudie Kibbe Reed, President of Bethune-Cookman University,
declared, "This Classic is more than a game. It is a family reunion that has evolved
into the greatest competition between two historic universities in the state of Florida.
The football game, the band competition, the tailgating, the display of school pride,
as well as the student recruitment and educational fairs now attract individuals as far
away as New York City and deliver a near $30 million economic impact to the
Central Florida economy."
Presidents Ammons and Reed stated that in spite of just learning that Walt
Disney World would no longer serve as Title Sponsor, they are confident the Florida
Classic would continue as the # 1 HBCU Classic in the nation.
Steve Hogan, Executive Director of the Florida Citrus Sports, the non-profit
organization engaged by the school to manage the game, stated, "Upon hearing that
Walt Disney World was pulling out as the Title Sponsor of the Classic, our office
has received numerous calls from major fortune 500 companies eager to discuss the
vacant title sponsorship. He further stated that, "the Florida Classic is a powerful
brand with passionate fans ready to support companies associated with the event. We
believe the Classic will pnjoy a new partner read to move with the universities to the
next level of excellence."
Ammons and Reed expressed appreciation to Walt Disney World for a long and
successful partnership in the development of the Classic. "While Walt Disney World
has decided to discontinue their relationship with the Classic as Title Sponsor, we
hope that neither Walt Disney World, or any other organization will encroach on the
Florida Classic brand by bringing other HBCU teams into Orlando to replicate, or to
engage in activities that would diminish the Florida Classic."
Toward that end, both universities have agreed not to play other teams in
Orlando.
Representatives of the National Alumni Organizations of both universities stated
that, "This is not just a game, but a meaningful gathering of our alumni, supporters
and friends and one of the strongest matches in black college sports where the uni-
versities control the revenue and the destiny of the game."
Both presidents are elated that companies are now lining up to compete for the
Title Sponsorship of the Classic. "We are looking forward to the Classic staying in
Orlando, and being bigger than ever!"

First there was The
Original Kings of
Comedy, then the
Queens of Comedy, fol-
lowed by the Latin Kings
of Comedy, now the
stage has been set for the
Teens of Comedy.
Whether you want to call
them younger versions
of the new superstars of
slapstick, the heavy hit-
ters of humor, the leaders
of laughter or even the
masters of merriment,
they are, making people
stand up and take notice
of them. The talented
"Teens of Comedy" is
Lil' JJ, Brandon T.
Jackson, Juan Garcia and
Isiah Kelly. They not
only represent a new
crop of comedians com-
ing up through the ranks,
but they also represent
the future of funny.
Following up on the phe-
nomenal success they
charted last year with the
inaugural preview leg of
the Teens of Comedy
tour, Lil' JJ and Brandon
T. Jackson have now
added Juan Garcia and
Isiah Kelly to the mix
and signed up to set
stages on fire across the
country from coast to
coast with their unique
brand of comedy. The
result has evolved into
this year's installment of
BET'S TEENS OF
COMEDY TOUR.
Collectively Lil' JJ,
Brandon T. Jackson,
Juan Garcia and Isiah
Kelly have been able to
create a fan base that's
filled with millions of
screaming girls.
Individually they have
emerged as some of the
hottest teen talent to


come out of the comedy
circuit and the young act-
ing community in years
that both girls and guys
respect and admire. Their
fans have been able to see
themselves and parts of
their own families
onscreen and onstage
with these talented teen
stars.
BET'S TEENS OF
COMEDY TOUR, in
association with Bay Area
Productions and Another
Planet Entertainment, hits
Jacksonville on Saturday,
March 22, 2008 at 7 PM
at the Times Union
Center- Moran Theater,
300 West Water Street.
The tour has created a
market for young lovers
of comedy to come face
to face in an up close and
personal setting with their
favorite teen stars from
the silver screen and TV.
BET'S TEENS OF COM-
EDY TOUR, hosted by
Lil' JJ, along with
Brandon T. Jackson, Juan
Garcia and Isiah Kelly
promises to give audi-
ences across the country
performances filled with
side-splitting, show stop-
ping humor-the type they
will not soon forget. From
today's outrageous head-
lines of celebrity fodder
to politically incorrect
humor, political parodies,
dating dilemmas, prob-
lems with parents, the ups
and downs of being
young to simply just
growing up, their fans
will experience it all.
Nothing in the news will
be off limits to these guys
and nothing from the
blogs will be out of
bounds.
"We simply wanted to


has starred in such
movies as Beauty Shop
with Queen Latifah,
Yours, Mine and Ours
with Dennis Quaid and
Rene Russo and
Crossover, opposite

After its stop in
Jacksonville, the tour will
travel to Baltimore. Other
stops on the tour also
include DC, Atlanta,
Chicago, Detroit,
Norfolk, Little Rock,
Memphis, Dallas,
Phoenix and Cleveland.

I Give Your Kids A Green Education


Courtesy of Family Features


(Family Features) Looking for creative ways to enjoy the warm weather and get outdoors
with your kids? Perhaps you need an original craft or activity to occupy your child during
rainy days or quiet times. Or, maybe you're eager to educate your children on ways to respect
the environment by reusing and recycling common household items.
When it comes to giving your kids a green education, hundreds of great ideas are just a
click away at abundantforests.org. The site, by the Abundant Forests Alliance, educates visi-
tors about the importance of keeping our forests-the nation's most renewable resource-
healthy and thriving. Users browsing the site can search for activities by keyword, or by cat-
egories, like "Fun with Kids," "The Great Outdoors" or "Crafty Ideas for Moms."
Here are some of the site's educational, family-friendly suggestions:.
Take a family walk around the neighborhood, collecting leaves from different trees and
taking photos of the trees. Have children turn their finds into a personal tree reference book.
Encourage your kids to read a book that teaches them about the many things we get from
our forests. (The site provides a recommended reading list at abundantforests.org/reading.)
Plant a tree with the kids in your own yard to provide shade. An added bonus: just three
well-placed mature trees around the home can cut air-conditioning bills by 10 to 50 percent.
Celebrate holidays or special occasions by helping children make their own greeting
cards. Be creative and reuse items around the house, like old wrapping paper, ribbon, buttons
or even clippings from magazines or newspapers.
Find a forest near you and bring your family for a
hike, bike ride or picnic.
Make a scavenger-hunt photo frame: Search for twigs, pinecones, leaves, flowers and other
ej found items and then glue them on a plain wood frame.
In addition to offering activities, the site also serves as an educational resource. Want to teach
k your kids the amount of forest acreage in your state? Simply log on to find the answer. Curious
about what it means for a wood or paper product to be certified sustainable? The site explains the
high standards required to practice certified sustainable forestry..
For more crafts, activities and fun forest facts, visit abundantforests.org. -
Quick Forest Facts
Forests in the U.S. cover about a third of the country's entire land base-and are still as abun-
.. ~dant as they were 100 years ago.
Trees and forests are the nation's single most renewable resource.
_- Four million new trees are planted every day, more than making up for what is harvested.
-- New technologies now make it possible to use almost all of every tree harvested, even the bark
and sawdust, so nothing goes to waste.
