A3 From Actual Police Reports

H Did You Hear About?...







OKAY, MAN OR WOMAN? An officer
was called to a hotel where a witness
observed a person soliciting sex. When the
officer arrived, he witnessed the conversation
between the suspect and the buyer. The sus-
pect was taken to the JPDF and booked for
prostitution. After booking the suspect into
the women's jail, the suspect told the book-
ing officer that he was not a she, but is a man
and would like to go to the men's side. When
the officer picked up the suspect, he was
wearing women's clothing and appeared to
be female. The suspect demanded that he goes to the male side, but the offi-
cers did not believe the seemingly female was telling the truth. The suspect
had to start talking in his normal male voice before the officers agreed that it
was a male after all. The suspect was then taken to the proper cell of his gen-
der.


OKAY, WHO HIT WHO? An officer was dispatched to the 1000 block of
Prince St. in reference to a hit and run of a parked car. The owner of the vehi-
cle called because she heard a loud bang in the early morning and ran to the
door where she noticed her green colored car that was parked out front had
been hit and damaged. When she got to the door the other vehicle that had hit
it and fled from the scene. The police took the report. Later that morning, a
person called in from the 1200 block of
Albany, stating that someone had ran up
into his yard and hit his truck damaging it.
When the police went to observe the dam-
age and to write up the report, he noticed
that there were no tire tracks where anoth-
er vehicle would have drove up to his
truck to damage it. He noticed that his
vehicle had green paint on it. The same
color green of the vehicle that he wit-
nessed earlier and he also noticed a trail of
radiator fluid on the ground that he fol-
lowed around to Prince St. leading up to
the lady's car that he had written a report on earlier that morning. The victim
in this case has become the suspect. The police ran his license and found out
that his license had been suspended, and he had no insurance.


PLEASE STOP YOUR HARASSMENTS -An officer was dispatched to
the 11400 block of John Dory Way in reference to harassing telephone calls.
Upon his arrival, he met with the victim, Ms. AS. She stated that she use to
be friends with the suspect Ms. NJ. She stated that she started dating Ms. NJ's
brother and every since then the suspect Ms. NJ has been harassing her. Ms.
AS stated that in the month of June she sent her several harassing text mes-
sages. The officer observed the messages and agreed they were all degrading
messages towards Ms. AS. The victim
stated that she has replied to Ms. NJ's
messages asking her to stop, but she
continues to send them. The officer
gave Ms. AS a State Attorney's card '
with instructions on how to pursue ,
with prosecution. ,,' / ,

SOME HE-SAID SHE-SAID a/ ,
STUFF an officer was dispatched to i m il
the 2100 block of James Hall Dr. in
reference to an assault. Upon his
arrival, he met with the victim Ms. AS
who reported her former boyfriend,
Mr. AB, suspect, choked her and punched her in the face. Ms. AS reported she
and Mr. AB ended their nearly two year relationship approximately three
months ago, but stated she was 5 months pregnant with his child. The officer
did not notice any injuries from the altercation. The victim stated that the sus-
pect came to her apartment and wanted to talk with her about "some he-said,
she-said stuff." She stated that some unknown female told Mr. AB that she
had been cheating on him during their relationship. Ms. AS stated that she
told Mr. AB that the allegations were untrue and that she didn't want to talk
about them. She stated that's when she began to walk away and he grabbed
her arm and pulled her back and punched her in the face several times and
choked her to the point that she could no longer breathe. There were two chil-
Sdren in the house when the altercation


occurred. The officer attempted to
speak with the oldest child, however, he
appeared to have a speech impediment
and was unable to understand his state-
ments. Ms. AS stated that this was the
third time Mr. AB was physically vio-
lent toward her, but stated that this was
the first time the law was involved. The
officer left a message on the voice mail
for the suspect to call him back. The
victim was given a case information
card.

HOROSCOPE

ARIES
r t f Mar 21st Apr 19th
Emotions run deep but are necessary
to 'speed along' especially for Pisces,
Cancer, Leo and other Ram members.
Dig in your heels near the 2nd to 4th
since 'busy/busy' is the mode and be
sure to finish no matter what your
'opinion' since your fuse is prone to be
short. You show expenses on the rise
the 3rd/4th and a need for patience
with children, youth, elders and in-
laws the 28/29th.

| ~CANCER
Jume 22nd July 22nd
You appear to get good cooperation
near the 30/1st but may have to lay out
a lot of patience and cash near the
3rd/4th, especially for health needs,
children, transportation and food.
Visitors too may be costly over the
weekend for some reason. In-laws,
ex's, extended family, Taunis, Aries,
Cancer, Capricorn and Pisces rank
highest on that one. Bending to the
'will' of a partner on a money issue
MAY be the 'right thing to do.'


TAURUS
' Apr 20th May 20th


Money, money and more money 'out
the door' and on some pretty hefty
needs, especially near the 2nd to 4th
and/or if family visits or you are host-
ing a 'big doings' like a wedding, grad-
uation or birthday party that marks a
'milestone' in someone's life. Children
drive spending up as well along with
an'elective big ticket item.' Search for
'used or rented' first just to see if you
can save a pinch.

LEO
July 23rd -Aug 22nd
Your time and patience needs appear
to 'go on the rise' sharply near the
demands of the 3rd to 4th and distrac-
tions are likely, especially with chil-
dren, health issues or remodeling proj-
ects. Falling 'short' on commodities is
also possible and spending can esca-
late when you discover how depleted
supplies may be near the 3rd to 4th.
Travel costs are up but mostly due to
'social obligations,' and those of you
WITH none, may not see as much
going out.


LIBRA SCORPIO SAGITTARIUS
Sept 23rd Oct 22nd Oct 23rd Nov 21st Nov 22nd -Dec 21st


Solve for the youth first and worry
about in-laws, ex's or extended mem-
bers next. Children may be going
through very 'impressionable' experi-
ences this week, especially Gemini,
Virgo, Aquarius and Pisces. Support
needs to be more than just money
and/or lip service. Accompany any
youth of any age who expresses 'fear
or hesitation' at any situation, especial-
ly a health issue/need. Your fatigue,
illness and accident vulnerability is
rather 'wa up' near the 2nd to 4th and
you will NEED all the help and coop-
eration you can get. Clear your plate
EARLY in the week.


Demands on your time and patience
may feel like they are 'sucking the life'
out of you at times and your focus
becomes strained most near the 2nd,
the 3rd big time and again but mostly
over money and emotions the 30/1st.
Members like Aries, Taurus, Gemini,
Aquarius and Leo may clash with you
or each other. IF you get in any 'three
ways,' stop, drop and get out fast!
NEVER make/let an argument over
money escalate this week ANY day!


Cooperation is NOT the best near the
30th/lst and flying it 'solo' may be
necessary AND save work, emotion
and even money 'in the long run' any-
way, especially if Pisces, Aquarius,
Aries, Cancer or Capricorn are
involved. In-laws, extended family
and ex's could be a source of discus-
sion, debate or even 'grief near the
2nd/3rd. Be sure to include caveats
with invitations, especially for any
'blending' of 'two sides' or ex'ss.' Keep
your word/promises, especially to
Aries, Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn
the 4th or pay BIG TIME!


SCAPRICORN l AQUARIUS j PIECES
Dec 22nd Jan 19th Jan 20th Feb 18th Feb 19th Mar 20th
You ppea to rontm sove ncet


You HAIE sorting through emotional
garbage, even when it is necessary
and unavoidable! There may be plen-
ty of it near the 30th, 3rd and 4th or
'from the events of them.' Do what
you can, how you can and when you
can. Don't 'jam up' your psyche. Tell
them you need time if you feel you do.
A great 'catch up day' the 30th may
allow you to sort. solve and even
'avoid' ;iny additional hassles the
'Id 3id!' \xpcct spending to go on the
rise thi 3rd 4th as they do appear to be
necessities, especially health, food,
elderly and youth 'needs.'


You appear to problem solve nicely
the 30/1st and then be in need of a
solver yourself by the 2/4th. Look to
Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, Leo or Aries
members to support your needs, espe-
cially if they are 'older' and/or more
experienced than you. In-laws, par-
ents, grandparents and even extended
members may qualify to be helpful.
You so seldom ask and are always so
eager to 'do the helping.' Have you
ever thought that maybe THEY would
like a chance to 'feel good' when you
are in need? Need may strike your
wallet too, but that one you should
keep under your hat near the 30/lst
unless you are 'super comfortable'
with a member.


Smile often, remain calm 'no matter
what' and respect each request, even
the ones you have to turn down or
'grossly disappoint' this week. Your
attitude may be what keeps EVERY-
ONE focused and 'afloat' this week!
Don't LET them 'see the
fear/insecurity' if and/or when it
should surface this week, especially
near the 'close calls' of the later hours
of the 30th and the entire of the 1st.
Keep a partner feeling secure about
their position and income by coopera-
tion and 'faith.' You are THE 'great
believer.' MAKE THAT 'infectious'
this week.

Suns Rally Early, Hang On Late For Thursday Win
By: J.P. Shadrick
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. After scoring four runs in the second inning, the Jacksonville Suns
(38-41, 5-4) held off a pesky Chattanooga Lookouts (40-39, 3-6) by trading late runs in a 6-4
Thursday night victory in front of 7,898 at the Baseball Grounds.
The Suns have won three straight games for the first time since winning four in a row from May
13 through May 16. In addition, it is the first three-game win streak against an opponent in a single
series since taking the final three of a set against the Tennessee Smokies May 2-4.
Jacksonville opened the scoring in the second inning against Chattanooga ace Ben Jukich. Lucas
May led off with a double while Shane Justis later recorded a single with one out. Adam Godwin
next singled home May for a 1-0 lead. With runners on first and third base, pitcher B.J. LaMura bunt-
ed toward the mound, and after fielding and looking the runner back to third, Jukich pulled the first
baseman off the bag with his throw to load the bases. James Tomlin next grounded a ball to third
baseman Eric Eymann, who stepped on third for a force out, but threw wildly past first base, allow-
ing Shane Justis to score for a 2-0 lead. Ivan DeJesus, Jr. next singled home LaMura and Tomlin
before being thrown out at second to end the inning with a 4-0 Suns advantage.
The Lookouts countered against Suns starter B.J. LaMura in the third inning as Tonys Gutierrez
hit a sacrifice fly to right field to plate pitcher Ben Jukich, cutting the Suns lead to 4-1.
Chattanooga scored another run against LaMura in the sixth inning on Chris Valaika's fifth
homerun of the season, a solo blast that further cut the Suns lead to 4-2. Jacksonville answered in the
bottom of the inning against Lookouts reliever Lee Tabor as a James Tomlin groundout scored Adam
Godwin for a 5-2 lead.
LaMura left after allowing two runs on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts over six
innings, making way for reliever Danny Muegge in the seventh. With one out, the next three
Lookouts singled to load the bases before a Sean Henry single scored Chris Denove to trim the deficit
to 5-3. The Suns again countered right away in the bottom of the inning as Mark Bellhom smashed
his fifth homerun, a solo shot that landed on Georgia Street, opening a 6-3 advantage.
Chattanooga ended the scoring in the ninth inning against Suns closer Jacobo Meque, as Craig
Tatum drove home Cody Strait for a 6-4 final score.
B.J. LaMura (2-2) picked up the win for the Suns while Ben Jukich (7-3) fell in the loss for the
Lookouts. Jacobo Meque (1) saved the game for the Suns.
Jacksonville RH Jesus Rodriguez makes his Suns debut Friday night against Chattanooga RH
Sam LeCure at 7:05 p.m. in the fourth game of the series at the Baseball Grounds. The first 3,000
fans will receive a team baseball card set of the 2008 Suns, sponsored by Jacksonville Sports Cards,
CBS 47 and 99.1 WQIK. Elvis Himselvis will perform during the game and after the game fans can
enjoy Friday Family Fireworks, sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts. For tickets call the Suns box office

ART 'SUPERMAN' PENNINGTON
LOSES HOME IN FLOOD
'By Mike Hlas
The Art Pennington who has called Cedar Rapids home since he played for the
pro baseball team here in 1953 and 1954 has always been talkative, proud, full of life,
and never afraid to brag about himself. The Superman on the phone Friday sounded
Pretty weary. The flood got his houseand he was staying with a good friend in Iowa
S When The Gazette called for readers to submit their favorite memories of old
Veterans Memorial Stadium as it neared its final game in 2001. Pennington sent us
this:
No one has broken my batting average record of .345 set in 1954 at Veterans
Memorial Stadium. In my last game at the stadium, we trailed 2-1 when I came to bat with two outs and a
man on in the bottom of the ninth inning. Jo Jo White called timeout to put his best pitcher in to face me. I hit
the first pitch over the fence in center field to win the game, 3-2.
If you'd been denied a place in the major leagues in the prime of your career because of the color of your
skin, as Pennington was in the 1940s, you might want people to know how good you really were. He hit .359
for the Chicago American Giants of the Negro Leagues as a 20-year-old in 1945. But Jackie Robinson didn't
cross baseball's color line until 1947, and blacks only trickled into the big leagues for many years after.
Many like Pennington never did make it. He spent most of the 1940s in the Negro Leagues and had a
shiny lifetime batting average of .337. He was an All-Star who could have played anywhere with his bat and
speed. He homered off Hall of Famer Dizzy Dean in an off-season exhibition game.
But instead of winding up his career a hero in a major-league city, Pennington wound up his playing days
in minor-league towns like Keokuk and Cedar Rapids. He was playing with and against whites by then but
wasn't done facing prejudice. Many Cedar Rapids players lived in the downtown Montrose Hotel. Pennington
wasn't allowed to stay there. But that and little else ever deterred him. He quickly grew to like Cedar Rapids
and vice versa and made a home here after he retired from pro ball. He was employed for a quarter-century
at Collins Radio mainly because he was a good slugger for the company's M & J League baseball'team. He
has been a friend to many people in this city, young and old. But the last two weeks have been bad ones for
Superman. His house on the 900 block of Fifth Street SE was wrecked by the flood..
"All that insurance, it didn't pay," Pennington said. "I didn't have flood insurance, so I don't get a dime."
He is staying in Iowa City at the house of his agent, Billy Valencia. Yes, Pennington has an agent. At 85,
he still promotes himself. "I work with Art getting him speaking engagements, autograph signing, DVD pre-
sentations, career retrospective on his time in baseball and as a civil rights pioneer," Valencia said.
Today Pennington will sign autographs at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City with other former Negro
League stars as the Kansas City Royals host a Negro Leagues Salute before their game against San Francisco.
He'll receive $500 for the two-hour signing period, but Pennington hopes to do better than that on the trip.
"The (major-league) players, they'll chip in, I believe," Pennington said. "There might be a passing-the-
hat in the ballpark." Pennington had his house since 1960. He had homeowner's insurance the whole time,
"never making one claim," according to Valencia.
"Once he gets hit by a disaster, they won't pay him a penny," Valencia said. "It's completely baffling and
angers me every time I think about it. He's an 85-year-old man who's not in a position to build a house again.
He can't just go out and get a job. I'm trying to get some money raised for him."
Pennington isn't pretending to be more deserving of help than anyone else who was in the flood's way.
"I'm not the only one," he said. "Everybody on the Southeast side got it."
But Superman has never been shy and said if anyone wants to toss him some help, they can do it via the
University of Iowa Community Credit Union. Valencia said he hopes people go to
www.artpenningtonbaseball.com, where he hoped to have a PayPal button in place by today to take donations.
"We're supposed to get 20-some thousand dollars for our houses," Pennington said. "Hopefully, everything
can come out all right and I can get my own home just like I did before.
"The president flew over here yesterday and said there will be two billion dollars for all this. I don't know
how you get some of that. You never can tell how long it will be."
These days in Iowa City, Superman is sleeping late. He spends some of his evening time sitting in
Valencia's backyard whistling at birds.
"I'm doing the best I can," he said. "This is a mess. I lost everything."

tanta tstelle swaray was born January 18, 198u
in West London. She is one of eight children, born to
a Sierra Leone and Ghana mother and a father from
Grenada. Estelle runs her own record label, Stellar
S Ents, and has released her own material through this
including the two "Da Heat" mixtapes Part 1 and 2,
the album The 18th Day and the singles "1980",
"Free" and "Go Gone". She featured on Natasha
S Bedingfield's song "Drop Me In The Middle" for
Natasha's U.S. release of Unwritten. She also did a
memorable rap verse on a 2006 Omar song, "Lay it
Downn.
She has received the MOBO for "Best
Newcomer" and received three consecutive "Best
Female Artist" trophies from the UK Hip-Hop
Awards.
Estelle was originally on the Ill Flava Records.
Label owned by Hip Hop award winner Karl Hinds,
who together with Estelle and Joni Rewind re-
released the well known Althia & Donna 1978
track, 'Uptown Top Rankin'. Estelle also worked on various other tracks and videos with Karl
Hinds and Ill Flava Records.
In 2005 Estelle revealed on the Sky Sports show Soccer AM that her birth name is actual-
ly "Fanta"[citation needed]and her favourite drink is Ribena.
In 2006, Estelle appeared at the London School Harris City Technology College for a Post
16 Year Of Achievement Night, and she could also be seen in the video for John Legend's sin-
gle "Save Room". Also in 2006, Estelle joined rapper Kardinal Offishall's Black Jays
International, and was eventually signed to singer John Legend's Homeschool Records through
Atlantic Records.
According to her official Blogspot, she had a photo-shoot on the week of July 2, 2007, for
her new album. Estelle has been critical of the music industry's perceived double standards of
preferring white women over black women.
The forthcoming album will feature production from the likes of Will.I.Am, Wyclef Jean,
Mark Ronson, Cee-Lo, Swizz Beatz, and John Legend.
Kanye West also features on the album, on a track called "American Boy" which reached
number one in the UK singles chart on March 23, 2008. Estelle will be touring with Wyclef Jean
with the tour dates soon to be announced.'
Recently she has got into controversy claiming racist attitudes in the U.K. music industry
promote white artists over black artists performing the same style of music.
In April 2008 Estelle announced a short UK tour, calling at the Manchester Ritz on the 8th
June, Glasgow ABC on the 9th June, Birmingham Custard Factory on the 10th June and the
Shepherds Bush Empire on the 12th June.
Estelle will perform at halftime of the 2008 MLS All-Star Game on July 24, 2008 at BMO
Field in Toronto, Ontario.


Mica Paris
(born Michelle
Wallen on
April 27 1969
in London,
England) is an
English singer.
She began
singing in
church at an
early age and
then went on to
become a ses-
sion singer at
the age of 15,
for bands such
as Hollywood
Beyond and Shakatak.
In 1988, she released her most successful single,.My
One Temptation, which peaked at #7. In the continuing
years she went on to release many more singles and
albums. She currently has her own show on BBC Radio
2, called Soul Sessions. She also competed in the ITV
singing competition Hit Me Baby One More Time.
On February 14th 2001, Mica lost her brother to a
shooting and has since campaigned against gun crime in
the UK.
During January 2006, Mica appeared in the 4 part
BBC TV series The Sound of Musicals. In April 2006, it
was announced that she and model Lisa Butcher, were to
take over from Trinny Woodall and Susannah
Constantine, to be the new co-presenters of the long run-
ning BBC TV series What Not to Wear.
Paris also performed alongside Pink Floyd's David
Gilmour, on the evenings of 30 May and 31 May 2006 at
the Royal Albert Hall, singing The Great Gig in the Sky.
In the autumn of 2006, Paris took part in Strictly
Come Dancing where she danced with Ian Waite. She
was the second celebrity to be knocked out of the com-
petition.


T A SM INA R


I mI,11111 m t1IC1I IN all
English pop singer. Her first
album, Great Expectations,
spawned the smash hit,
"Sleeping Satellite", a philo-
sophical song about the moon
landings, which reached number
one in the United Kingdom.
She joined a group called
Dignity as a backing vocalist.


Later, after studying secretarial
skills she became a clerk at
Leeds Magistrates' Court. She
helped out at a recording studio
in Bradford called 'Flexible
Response', and subsequently
began working with musicians
John Hughes and John. Beck.
Archer signed to EMI in 1990,
and released her first single
Sleeping Satellite in September
1992, which went to no.1 in the
UK. The album "Great
Expectations" followed in
October (reaching no.8). Further
singles from the album followed,
and although they were top 40
hits in the UK, they did not
achieve the same level of suc-
cess as her debut. In 1993,


Archer won a BRIT Award for
the Best British Breakthrough
Act.
After disappearing from the
limelight, Archer reappeared in
1996 with her second album
"Bloom". However, the album
(and subsequent single "One
More Good Night With The
Boys"), failed to make any
impact on the chart. In late 1997,
disagreements with EMI left
Archer somewhat disillusioned
and feeling like she had been
treated as a commodity. She
decided to take a short break
from the industry. After two
years she felt the time was right
to start writing again but was
hindered by writer's block.


Although this didn't prevent her
from being initially creative she
found it difficult to finish any-
thing musically. However, she
did not let this stop her from
expressing her creativity in other
ways, and she began painting
and moulding clay during this
time away from the spotlight. It
was also during this time that her
love of Sunderland AFC blos-
somed, committing to a season-
ticket with her Sunderland-bom
musician partner John Hughes in
1999 after falling in love with the
team when taken to her first
match in the late 1980s. She
retains her ticket to this day.
After working through the
block and starting in 2002, she


and Hughes worked on a new
album. Initially this was going to
be titled Non Linear, but later
became ON. Several demo-ver-
sions of the songs from this
album were available for free
from the messagetothemagnet
website which was created for
the purpose. People were
encouraged to send feedback on
the material.
ON was released on 25th
September 2006 on Archer's
own label, Quiverdisc, and was
preceded by a download only
single, Every Time I Want It
(Effect Is Monotony) a radio edit
of the album track Effect Is
Monotony on 20th September.
