ing on a sofa by a female that those who knew her, thought of-him as the person she would soon

Another Citizen
Fight Off Criminal
Sheriff Rutherford says
he has several programs
for those who have been
arrested in Jacksonville to
get help while they are
locked up. But, with the
way private citizens have
learned to protect them-
selves, the city may see
even a larger decrease in
crime.
On Wednesday about
4:30 a.ni., William West
received a call from a
neighbor advising that
someone was entering his
home through a window.
West was so frighten, he
did not even put on his
glasses before reaching
for his 12-gauge shotgun
and shooting at the object
that he could barely see.
His shooting stopped
Gerald Wright, 25, who
was standing in his living
room, carrying a silver
handgun. Wright was
able to climb back out of
the window, leaving
behind a bloody trail. He
was found and arrested
for burglary/dwelling,
armed with a dangerous
weapon. He is not eligi-
ble for bond and is wait-
ing for a hearing on July
22, 2009.
This is the third citizen

Watts United Credit Union Closed,

Racial Disparity in 401k Savings
A new study released Tuesday by business consultant Hewitt
Associates and a nonprofit foundation in Chicago, revealed
that Black and Hispanic workers save significantly less for
retirement and tap into their accounts more often than white
and Asian employees. Blacks and Hispanics contribute less to.
their accounts and have lower account balances at all pay lev-
els.
Since 401 (k) plans are the primary retirement savings tool and
there is such a disparity, such explains why minorities are like-
ly to retire with less financial security.
Looking at this study, may explain why The California

Pelosi Say No Resolution
About 31.1 million viewers in the U.S. watched the

S"'There's Always Sorethin
Living It Up In Historic Richmond
Enjoy Yourself, It's Later Than You Think


Members of the Jacksonville MOLES with their
spouses and a set of future members arrived in Richmond
for fun, fellowship and a little business at the 59th Annual
Conclave of The MOLES June 18-21, 2008. Making her
first national appearance as National Financial Secretary
of The MOLES was Jacksonville MOLES co-organizer
and Florida Star Socially Speaking Columnist Betty
Asque Davis. Mrs. Madeline Scales-Taylor, president
of The Jacksonville MOLES again made presentations as
the National Courtesy Chairperson. Dr. Carolyn Rudd of
the Washington, DC MOLES was elected National
President during the 59th Conclave.
The 59th Annual Conclave, "Living It Up In Historic
Richmond" hosted by the Richmond MOLES was mar-
velously splendid! The Thursday and Friday daytime and
early evening activities at the Richmond Marriott Hotel
located in downtown Richmond included: A Wine Sip,
the Richmond Heritage Tour, The Lady Sings Welcome
Reception, Golfing and Shopping. The Board Member
Luncheon hosted by The Chicago MOLES was fabulous
with music of Chicago performed by local artists of
Richmond. The 16 year old African American violinist's
performance of classical and show tunes was OUT-
STANDING!! In fact all of the local musicians at each
event was beyond brilliant!!!
On Friday evening we enjoyed the Discover the
Magic of The MOLES Dinner Dance and discovered the
tastiness of Moletinis (the drink of the evening). Would
you believe that the magician was from Florida?
Saturday afternoon following the morning business
meeting for The MOLES, we rushed to the Classy, Sassy,
Jazzy Luncheon where TheMOLES presented a very sig-
nificant donation to the Oliver Hill Foundation (The late
Oliver W. Hill was appointed by President Truman to a

Season-edGreetings
. 8. **By Cynthia. Ferrell


Cool Summer Entertaining


Chef Cynthia is a graduate
of the University of Houston.
She is the owner of Bennie
Ferrell Catering, a million
dollar catering company
started by her father, Bennie
Ferrell in 1959.
Summer is here and
what a great season to cel-
ebrate with friends. Parties
whether they are simple or
sensational, big or tiny,
tend to throw the novice
host or hostess into pre-
party jitters. Organization
is the key to a successful
party be it elaborate or sim-
ple. Here are some tips to
help ease the jitters when
throwing a summer party.
Keep the menu simple
and cool. Plan your menu
around foods which may
be prepared in advance.
Cold foods such as chicken
salad, pasta salad, cheese
and fruit, and smoked
salmon are great choices
for a simple make ahead
menu.
Keep the bar simple.
Every great party must
have a memorable bever-
age. Plan to serve one or
two very good signature
beverages like Mojitos,
Margaritas, Pina Colada or


your favorite Martini and
an Non alcoholic drink.
Have plenty of ice on hand.
A good rule of thumb for
ice in the summer is 2 lbs
per person. Place some
mixed nuts, pistachios or
chips near the bar.
Keep your guest list
small. A group of 20 peo-
ple or less is very manage-
able.. Hire someone to
arrive two hours before the
guest to help set up serve
and clean up. This will
allow you to enjoy your
party and mingle with
guests. If you are mailing
invitations or sending by
email, remember to ask
guests to RSVP. Having an
accurate guest list will help
with planning and budget-
ing especially if you are
using a caterer.
Pick out something cool
to wear, and play your
favorite music and you are
set. Have the coolest party
of the summer season.

JULY 11, 2009 THE FLORIDA AND GEORGIA STAR PAGE A-7


NAACP Continued from A-1
reports of police abuse to the association via cell phone.
Benjamin Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP, said the initiative is part of
a wider Criminal Justice strategy called "Smart and Safe," that the NAACP will be
launching during its Centennial Year.
"Nationwide, more than 26,000 citizen complaints of police officer use of force
were filed with state and local law enforcement agencies in 2002. However, because
many incidents are not reported, this number does not capture the full magnitude of
the problem," Jealous said.
"Research has shown that there are many barriers to reporting incidents of police
misconduct, including intimidation at police departments and a lack of trust in the
integrity of the system, among other reasons. This breakdown leads to an absence of
public safety and a deterioration of the quality of life in many communities of color.
But public safety is a civil and a human right; and so we want a more accurate count
of these incidents," Jealous said.
"We know that most of police officers around the nation are excellent public ser-
vants. But the few who violate people's rights are often not held accountable. We
hope to improve the relationship' between our community and law enforcement offi-
cers -- which is the best way to create the trust needed for police to effectively solve
crimes," Jealous said.
The Rapid Response System will be demonstrated for attendees at the NAACP
Centennial Convention July 11-16th at the New York Hilton. More information on
the full Convention schedule is available at www.naacp.org.
Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organi-
zation. Its members in the U.S. around the world advocate for civil and human rights,
conducting voter-mobilization campaigns, and monitoring equal opportunity in the
public and private sectors.

GRAVE Continued from A-1
weigh boxing champion Ezzard Charles, Harlem Globetrotter Inman Jackson and
several Negro League baseball players.
At one time, according to the president of a funeral home in the area, Burr Oak was
the only cemetery in the area where African Americans could be buried.
The cemetery is now owned by a subsidiary of a Tucson, Arizona-based funeral
home and cemetery development since 2001 with a president whose address is in
Richardson, Texas.
To the shock of many, a groundskeeper became suspicious when he discovered
skeletal remains in the part of the cemetery that was not supposed to be used. The
city police were contacted and around the same time, the owner of the corporation
reported financial wrongdoing.
According to the findings, as many as 100 or more bodies were dug up and dumped
in mass graves at the back of the 150-acre property in a scheme to resell plots to
unsuspecting customers. It appears, according to the reports, that orange flags mark-
ing grave sites for the possibly disturbed grave sites were throughout the cemetery.
It appears that none of the notables were disturbed but those plots that were not vis-
ited often by relatives appeared to be the ones resold.
The suspects, all black, were Carolyn Towns, 49, Keith Nicks, 45, Terrence Nicks,
39, and Maurice Dailey, 61. Bond was set at $250,000 for Towns and $200,000 for
the others. It is reported,that Towns also kept donations she elicited to an Emmett
Till memorial museum. She was fired in May. Each suspect has been charged with
one count of dismembering a human body, a felony.
WOMAN Continued from A-1
Sahel's ex-boyfriend, Keith Norfleet said that he and Sahel started dating when she
was 16. She discontinued attending Orange Park High School and they moved to
Nashville together. They stopped dating after she met McNair about five or six
months ago. Because he was a rapper, it was thought that one of his songs, "Closed
Casket," was written with Sahel and McNair in mind but his sister said the song was
written because of her unfaithful husband.
Sahel had told her brother that McNair and his wife were getting a divorce, selling
their house and that the two of them were going to live together. Her friends and rel-
atives also thought that he purchased the Cadillac for her but it appears that he co-
signed for her and that is why the vehicle was in both their names. She was respon-
sible for the payments on both cars as well as her apartment.
A video showed Sahel when she was stopped for a DUI a couple of days before her
death and was arrested, McNair left the scene before her arrest but later paid for her
release.
On Thursday, two days before the murder-suicide, Kazema purchased the gun she
used to take their lives. Her friends said that she was distraught because of the num-
ber of bills as a sports cafe waitress and that she also thought that McNair was dat-
ing another woman.
A memorial service for McNair was held at the stadium in Nashville and his funer-
al will be in his Mississipi hometown. Sahel will be buried in Jacksonville.

WATTS Continued from A-1
United Credit Union, Los Angeles, cit-
ing insolvency.
As of June 30, 2009, Watts United
Credit Union had assets of approxi-
mately $800,000 and about 1,000
member share accounts.
The NCUA will issue checks to Watts
CU members for verified funds in
their share accounts. Credit Union
members deposits are federally
insured up to $250,000 per account by
the NCUA National Credit Union
Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).
This is the first state-chartered credit
union closed by DFI in 2009.
The study regarding the disparities
made five recommendations to change
the racial gap, including mandating
financial education in private and pub-
lic schools.


HEARINGS Continued from A-1
he advised then of the cracks he observed in
the building and his boss warned the compa-
ny. They were told not to worry about the
cracks. They were further advised that the
problems would be fixed. The problem was
apparently not corrected. He no longer
works for Southern Pan Services who is
presently fighting the $132,500 fine in a
hearing before the U. S. Occupational
Safety and Health Review Commission and
he has lost a nephew.
A witness for Southern Pan Services said
that the building was fatally compromised
by problems that had nothing to do with
formwork. He said that he found a lot of
design errors. In fact, he said, some rein-
forcements designed into the building were
essentially non-effective.
The biggest error to Ferrell is the fact that
he lost his nephew and three children lost
their 26-year-old father, December 2007.

LEARN INTERVIEW SKILLS FROM STAFFTIME STARS!

Putting your best foot forward in a job interview can be as important as
keeping that foot out of your mouth! In a free one-hour seminar on July 22 at
Beaver Street Enterprise Center, staffing professionals Rose Conry and Kelley
Moore will teach you the interview skills you need to get the job you seek.
Owners of ER&S (Employment Resources & Solutions), with two offices in
Jacksonville Beaver Street Enterprise Center and Orange Park Conry and
Moore have recently opened StaffTime, a new temporary staffing agency that
provides temporary to direct, direct placement and "virtual office" services, and
transcription for as low as $1.50 per recorded minute.' "Our customers love the
virtual office service,", said Kelley Moore. "We have no minimums, no retain-
ers and our customers don't even have to buy a phone or computer. Their virtu-
al assistant is the same one each time, so that person will be familiar with them,
their business and their heeds, just like a full-time assistant, but they don't pay
the full-time salary, payroll taxes, workers comp, benefits, etc."
For Joanne Parks, owner of Parks' Place Daycare & Learning Center on
Jacksonville's Westside, StaffTime was the ideal solution for her administrative
needs. "When people think of a daycare and learning center, the focus is on the
quality of childcare and that is as it should be, but there are behind-the-scenes
considerations as well," said Parks, whose four-year old center has 20 employ-
ees and serves an average of 130 children daily. "With StaffTime helping man-
age the serious paperwork involved with having five governmental programs, I
am now free to better handle the day to day operations. StaffTime is taking my
center to the next level and I'm really excited about moving forward with strate-
gic programs to strengthen my HR!"
Strengthen your interview skills at an exciting one hour seminar on July 22
at Beaver Street Enterprise Center from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
Learn how to get the interview; write a cover letter; and take the lead
through research. Learn how to be an Interview Star how to look like a star;
interview like a star; and "act" through the interview! Following the free semi-
nar, participants will have the opportunity to purchase a hard copy
book/pamphlet that outlines, step by step, the proven StaffTime elements
involved in a "Star Interview."
Register now! Space is limited! For further information on StaffTime, call
Rose Conry or Kelley Moore at (904) 215-1313, email rose@stafftime.com or

Did You Hear About?...


m


ARIES
March 21st thru April 19th


On Tuesday, it is important to listen to
your intuition and inner guidance, as you
will then be directed along the right path
to greater success. A career issue may
come to a head, bringing dynamic
change. You may be wondering whether
to take that leap of faith, or whether to be
more conservative and attempt a watered
down version of your goals.
Compromise may not work in this situa-
tion. If you dare to follow your bliss
magical things will happen.

TAURUS
April 20th thru May 20th
You continue to feel empowered by the
presence of Mars in your sign. Use it to
initiate projects and gather the courage
to do great things. Meanwhile you may
receive some interesting news this week
of the kind that could change your life.
The Lunar Eclipse may be instrumental
in encouraging you to rethink your strat-
egy and to let go of limiting thoughts. A
serious meeting may have romantic
undertones. You may not want to get
involved but somehow do!

F^ GEMINI
T I May 21st thru June 21st
Mars in your philosophical and adven-
ture zone suggests that your beliefs are
having a powerful impact upon you,
especially if you have been exploring
new ideas and spiritual systems lately.
Mars remains in your twelfth house indi-
cating that you may not have as much
control over your affairs as you would
like. You may even do something that
isn't truly supportive of your current
plans, and so sabotage your own success.
But it doesn't have to be this way.

ir CANCER
SJune 22nd thru July 22nd
Mercury in your sign heightens your nat-
ural emotional intelligence and enables
you to handle sensitive issues with a
touch of genius. As there is going to be a
Lunar Eclipse in your opposite sign of
Capricorn on Tuesday, you may find that
partnership issues come to the fore. Go
easy. You may be absorbing new ideas
about how to attract abundance and cre-
ate financial independence. Others may
not understand, so you may have to keep
your thoughts to yourself for the time
being.

SLEO
2q : July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Time to interact with others and organize
some nights out. From Saturday you will
be in demand. You are in a competitive
mood and ready keen to find the job of
your dreams. A Lunar Eclipse on
Tuesday may bring health issues to the
surface which could encourage you to
get a check up, or perhaps to decide to
get fit and initiate a healthier lifestyle. If
you feel more tired than usual, then think
about taking a reduced schedule.

-: .VIRGO
S Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
If you are away on vacation you are
going to have a fascinating time this
week. The people you meet and the
new ideas and images you absorb
will have a profoundly positive
impact upon you. This week's Lunar
Eclipse may bring changes to friend-
ships. Some friends may leave your
circle, leaving space for others to
join you. When Mars moves into
Gemini on Saturday, you will be
keen to beat off the competition and
to take another step up the ladder.


I


A Drunken Mess


r LIBRA
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd
Your career is important, and there
maybe some clash between your plans
for the future, and issues at home. Are
you being pulled in two directions at
once? The answer is to listen to your
heart. You love life continues to be posi-
tive and upbeat. You and your lover may
be busy discussing financial issues. But
from the end of the week this will
change, and you may decide it is time to
go away on vacation and spoil your-
selves.

S SCORPIO
:- Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
This week's Lunar Eclipse occurs in your
communication zone. Eclipses have a
way of helping us to move on. They prod
and poke us into taking the next step.
You may have very intense feelings
about one project, but may have to drop
it. It may be impractical, or the timing
could be out. Letting go leaves space for
better ,ideas. From Saturday, you will be
keen to create additional streams of
income, making it easier to attract the
wealth you desire.

L SAGITTARIUS
Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
Your love life is quiet in one Way. But if
you are into gadgets, the Internet, and
texting, you are probably having a ball.
Relationships may stand or fall by the
quality of messages sent and received.
Health wise, don't allow your imagina-
tioh to play tricks with you, making you
think you have every illness under the
Sun. Time to get real or get checked out.
It will save you endless amounts of
worry and increase your energy. Anxiety
helps no-one!

( CAPRICORN
yj Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
A Lunar Eclipse in your sign makes this
a potentially hectic and chaotic week.
Eclipses have a way of clearing out all
that dead wood and making space for
new circumstances to enter your life.
Mars will move into Gemini at the end
of the week, which will stir up your
desire to improve your health and fitness
routine. If you have neglected this side
of life you will now feel motivated to
get back into the swing of things.

,., AQUARIUS
'/.,. Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
The Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday .takes
place in your spiritual zone. You may
find that your emotions continue to see-
saw. One minute you are fully confident
that you can manifest your goals and
desires, and then suddenly you are not. It
is important to stay positive as the vibra-
tion you give off will affect what hap-
pens to you. Later in the week you may
be offered access to resources that will
make your life at work so much easier.
Go for it!

../ PISCES
Feb 19th thru Nlarch 20th
New love affairs may be affected by
this week's Lunar Eclipse. If you find
yourself falling in love, try to hold
back. If you can wait a week, it will
save you a lot of trouble. You are
very motivated by spiritual ideas and
ideals, and this continues to influ-
ence your choice of job. You may
want to spend more time learning
about meditation, dreams, yoga, and
many other subjects that will help
you attain a greater level of aware-
ness.

SUNS NOTEBOOK
Jacksonville Suns
Outfielder Bryan
Petersen Was Named .
The Southern League
Hitter for the Week of .
June 22 28

The Jacksonville Suns will send a
host of players to represent the South Division in the
Southern League All-Star Game on Monday, July 13.
The team was selected by a vote of Southern League
field managers, radio broadcasters, general managers and
print media.
In all, six Suns were selected to the All-Star roster:
three position players catcher Brad Davis, infielder
Chris De La Cruz and outfielder Lorenzo Scott join
pitchers Kasey Olenberger, Matt Peterson and Graham
Taylor as Suns honorees.
Davis is seeing his first full season of action in AA
after 81 games with the Carolina Mudcats, the Marlins'
AA affiliate in 2008. A Johnny Bench Award finalist in
2004 for Long Beach State, this is the second All-Star
appearance for Davis, having been honored in the Florida
State League in 2006.
De La Cruz is an All-Star for the second time in his
career (Carolina League, 2005), joining as a utility
infielder this season. Having seen time at all levels of the
Cleveland Indians organization, De La Cruz was acquired
in trade by the Marlins in 2008 and finished the season
batting .360 over 26 games for the Carolina Mudcats.
Olenberger spent the last three seasons at AA in the
Los Angeles Angels organization before signing with the
Marlins in the offseason. Olenberger currently leads the
team in wins with seven and has posted a 1.41 ERA over
26 appearances for the Suns this season.
Peterson is the Southern League leader in saves, con-
verting 18 of his 20 opportunities this season. Peterson
signed with the Marlins this last offseason, having been a
part of three other organizations over his career, most
recently with Kansas City in 2008.
Scott leads the Suns in batting average, on-base per-
centage and slugging percentage, started his second sea-
son at AA after briefly seeing time at AAA in 2008. The
former Ball State linebacker was acquired by the Marlins
from the Orioles in the 2006 Rule 5 Draft.
Taylor makes his third straight All-Star appearance
after being recognized in the South Atlantic League
(2007) and the Florida State League (2008). The 2006
draft pick was briefly promoted to the Marlins earlier this
season, making three starts against the Phillies, Cubs and
Braves.

Birmingham Barons and will be played on Monday, July
13, at Regions Park in Hoover, AL. The Southern League
will announce starting lineups for the game on July 1 for
the North Division and July 2 for the South Division.

MICHAEL JACKSON,

GREATEST ENTERTAINER


Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana on August 29, 1958 and enter-
tained audiences nearly his entire life. His father, Joseph Jackson, had been a gui-
tarist but was forced to give up his musical ambitions following his marriage to
Katherine. Together they prodded their growing family's musical interests at home.
By the early 60s the older boys
Jackie, Tito and Jermaine had begun
performing around the city; by 1964
Michael and Marlon had joined in. -
A musical prodigy, Michael's
singing and dancing talents were
amazingly mature and he soon '
became the dominant voice and focus
of "The Jackson 5." An opening act
for such soul groups as the O-Jays
and James Brown, it was Gladys
Knight (not Diana Ross) who official-
ly brought the group to 'Berry -
Gordy's attention, and by 1969 the
boys were producing back-to-back l
chart-busting hits as Motown artists
("I Want You Back," "ABC," "Never
Can Say Goodbye," "Got to Be r
There," etc.). As a product of the 70s,
the boys emerged as one of the most
accomplished black pop/soul vocal
groups in music history, successfully
evolving from a Temptations-like
group act to a disco phenomenon.
Solo success for Michael was inevitable, and by the 80s he had become infi-


nitely more popular than his broth-
erly group. Record sales consistent-
ly orbited, culminating in the
biggest-selling album of all time,
"Thriller" in 1982. A TV natural, he
ventured rather uneasily into films,
such as playing the Scarecrow in
The Wiz (1978), but had much bet-
ter luck with elaborate music
videos.
In the 90s the down side as
an 80's pop phenomenon began to
rear itself. Michael grew terribly
child-like and introverted by his
peerless celebrity. A rather timor-
ous, androgynous figure to begin
with, his physical appearance
began to change drastically and his
behavior grew alarmingly bizarre,
making him a consistent target for
scandal-making, despite his numer-
ous charitable acts. Two brief marriages -- one to Elvis Presley's daughter
Lisa Marie Presley -- %%ere forged and two children produced by his second
wife during that time, but the purposes behind it appeared image oriented.
Despite it all. Michael Jackson's passion and artistry as a. singer, dancer,
writer and businessmrnan are unparalleled, and it is these prodigious talents
that \%ill ultimately pre\ all o% er the extremely negative aspects of his seri-
ously troubled adult life.
For it all to end on June 25, 2009, with his sudden death at age 50
of a cardiac arrest just as he was just coming out of a four-year reclusive
period and rehearsing for a sold-out London concert "comeback" in July
seems uncommonly cruel and tragic. Millions upon millions of dedicated
fans will remember where they were "the day Michael'died".
