success is not only due
in part to the care and
concern it expresses
about the animals but is

Despite all of the glam-

cordial, respectful and
very sweet natured.
Roberts gives an exam-

a situation she was in
recently. She sighs,
"I'm like really short

Roberts adds, "I have a

was their initial reac-

Roberts responds first,
"I thought it would be
fun. It was fun. It was
very chaotic though. I
didn't realize that it
would be twenty dogs
on the set at a time so it
definitely got crazy. I
had never worked with
animals before, so I
didn't really know
what to expect."
They both add that

in three days. Such causes great
concern for the sheriff's office and
the citizens. Sheriff Rutherford
said he is very concerned about the
eroding relationship between his
officers and the community and
expressed such with his walks in
the neighborhood and on Impact

The community leaders during
the press conference said that they
had met together prior to meeting
with the press. Mr. Staton feels
there is a need for a Citizens
Review Board but the sheriff and
Dr. Hallett, who is a professor of
criminology at UNF feels differ-
Pastor Griffin said after the con-
ference to Florida Star reporter,
Dan Evans, that he is in favor of
more research regarding the mat-
ter, and getting information from
those cities who have had success
with a review board in addition to
those cities who have not experi-
enced success with such a board.
Most citizens of Jacksonville who
have given their opinion to The
Star feels that the main culprit of
criminal activities is economics
and lack of education. They feel
that if we can get better education-
al programs in our schools, better
parenting early and more job
opportunities, the violence will
cease arid police officers will have
less fear. Most of all, said Mr.
Staton, we need to find the key to
establishing or re-establishing full
confidence that the police officers
in Jacksonville are doing the best
job possible. We also need to get
the illegal guns off of our streets
and get the youth to understand

F/7 Letter to the Editor
America is evolving, maturing, and changing attitudes, and policy,
being more inclusive and recognizing and rewarding competence.
The American Medical Association should define Illiteracy as the
worst chronic disability, mankirfd can suffer, and the only cure is edu-
cation. Blacks dropping out of school expecting respect and'be
rewarded a job, how dare you.
Now comes black leaders, the elected, appointed, anointed (preach-
ers) and self acclaimed bringing an assertion that there have been too
many police shooting. That premise should be rejected; they are only
shot gun allegations. Crimes committed without policing our ghetto.
would be a jungle. For the sake of argument I agree there have been
many shooting, but what are they doing to change the sub- culture?
The answer is nothing! Most are using the assertion as an entree for
their agenda and self-aggrandizemeint, while not connecting or doing
any thing for the people and the children they purport to love.
It's so gratifying to go into Cleveland Arms and see many of the
accomplishments that those disregarded children are doing. This board
has recognized some; they're in the Nation's top readers, perfect
FCAT score, and science and math awards taking college credits in
high school. All these children should be honored. Why do the leaders
love the criminals, and do nothing for .the impoverished children,
whose condition is not of their making?
I commend Mr. Eddie Diamond and The Honorable Dr. Johnny
Gaffney for all that they are doing for George Washington Carver's

On Saturday, February 7th, 95
people, from age 17- to 70,
received risk assessments for
HIV/AIDS and were tested for
the disease at Edward Waters
College. It was part of National
Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
(NBHAAD). The event was
organized by River Region
Human Services and the
Minority AIDS Coalition. Radio
personality Renee Simone pro-
moted the event on V101.5.
"National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a national
mobilization effort designed to encourage African-
Americans across the United States and Territorial Areas
to get educated, get tested, get treated, and get involved
with HIV/AIDS, as it continues to devastate Black com-
munities," says Steven Davis, a member of the
NBHAAD Strategic Leadership Council.
Lolita Hill, Director of Outreach for River Region
Human Services, was one of the leaders in a NBHAAD
motorcycle ride. "We make up 13% of the population,
but 49% percent of all cases of HIV/AIDS," she said.
"Today's ride is about awareness and education, getting
people tested so they will know their status, and if they
are positive, getting them into care."
Participants in the Awareness Motorcycle Ride joined
hands prior to the start of the ride
