The group Diddy Dirty Money will be in Jacksonville on their eleventh stop, nineteen city, Coming Home Tour.Ž Only days away from their April 28th performance at Plush, G Abrams with The Florida Star newspaper set time aside to speak with Dawn and Kalenna, minus the hip-hop mogul Sean DiddyŽ Combs. The story will appear next week. Catch it! In December, 2010, Ms. Ethel Clarks home was badly burned. She did not have insurance on the house and is unable to have the house repaired. Prior to the house fire, Ms. Clark, who has helped so many people in the city, spent time in the hospital. Now she needs help as the judge gave her until May 1, 2010 to at least get started on getting the repairs done. Ms. Clark is seeking financial help or physical help so that she will get off the homeless list. You may call her at (904) 353-4472. Please help her. Jacksonville realtor, Mark Gruszecki, 42, and Kessler Holzendorf, 42, have been indicted on 15 counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. According to reports, the two conspired together to defraud lenders and received kickbacks out of the purchase of 15 residential properties. Kessler is the son of Betty and King Holzendorf, a very influential family in Jacksonville. The Most Worshipful Grand Master Anthony T. Stafford, Sr., at 48, is the youngest Grand Master elected to serve in this position. He was elected at the age of 47. In the past, those in this position have been over 50. But the younger age did not spark any fear in this Grand Master as he served possibly the largest attendance during this 141st Communication in Jacksonville from April 15 to April 18, 2011. Grand Master Stafford laid out his plans for the organization to continue to grow and serve. He stated that he will continue to build relationships and work to upgrade and build for the future. His first effort will go towards activating all 138 Lodges. The historical 104 year old building on Broad Street will complete its renovation and office space will be made available for rent. It sits across from the Duval County Court House, which is scheduled to be completed soon. Such renovations will bring income to the organization and allow them to increase their presence among our youth; feed the hungry and offer more scholarships for those who are motivated through them, to continue their education. Grand Master Stafford said he plans to spend his five-year term in a very constructive manner as the organization increase their efforts to work with the young men from 9 to 18. His plan list is long but achievable. yyy0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqo Nqqmkpi"hqt"ewuvqogtu"vq"rcvtqpk|g"{qwt dwukpguu"qt"wvknk|g"{qwt"ugtxkeguA"Kh"{qw cpuygtgf"[GU."vjgp"{qw"pggf"vq"rnceg"cp"cf kp"Vjg"Hnqtkfc"qt"Igqtikc"Uvct#""ECNN ;261988/::56"vq"rnceg"{qwt"cf"VQFC[## Check, Money Order, Or Credit Cards Accepted PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFC‘U"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT K P U K F G Editorial....................A-2 Church....................A-3 Lifestyle..................A-4 State-National..................A-5 Entertainment..............B-3 Prep Rap................BPR1-4 Local.....................B-1 Columns...................B-2 Sports....................B-4 Crime & Justice......A..C&J Classified & Business...

Blankenship left the scene without stopping. Roberts was wearing a helmet but suffered serious injuries and died about a week later. Blankenship was arrested at her apartment on the day of the accident. Roberts services will be held Saturday, 11 a.m., SMC Church of the Master. The Rev. William Jones, 72, pastor of a Hilliard church fell off a boat Tuesday morning while he and his wife were fishing at Julington Creek. Family members say the couple fished almost weekly at the creek from their boat and cant understand what happened. He was not wearing a life jacket. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office dive team searched for and found Jones after about 25 minutes. A neighbor called for help after hearing Mrs. Jones screaming for help and stating that her husband could not swim. However, many say the water is murky and difficult to swim in. The Jones were about to celebrate 50 years of marriage. He had been preaching for about 35 years.

FAMU students, Jamal Rose and Lucas Melton are leading the fight against this action. Rcuvqt"Yknnkco"Lqpgu The Duval County School Board voted 4 to 3 to turn over the four intervene schools to an Educational Management Organization. The four schools are Raines, Ribault, Jackson and North Shore K-8 all predominantly minority attended institutions and are currently under-performing. The board members said they would not vote to close the schools but would leave that up to the state. The Board will now contract with the newly formed Duval Partners for Excellent Education. President Obama said Thursday that the Justice Department will attempt to find out if there are cases of fraud or manipulation in oil markets which is causing the increase in gasoline to $4.00 per gallon. The president said, We are going to make sure no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain.Ž President Obama said that this increase in the price of gas is causing a hardship on Americans at a time when things are already tough. Attorney General Holder said he will press ahead with the investigation, but did not cite any current evidence of intentional manipulation of oil and gas prices or fraud. President Obama said he is committed to making sure there is no fraud or any form of cheating.

Responding to the business leaders, calling for an independent board with power to hire and fire principals, teachers and school personnel (TU letters from readers). Teachers are not the problem at the Intervene Schools! Instead the leaders should be asked where the outcry is for the depressed/ dysfunctional communities that the Intervene Schools are located. With your silence on those conditions for years you did in fact sanctioned the status quo. How does one expect those failing students to excel with the pernicious atrocious effects of policy, practices, preachers, politicians and most parents that they have to endure? Many factions are culpable for the conditions thrust on these children. The business leaders basically have had a zero sum total effect in uplifting the distressed communities, or the students that they purport to enrich their lives with a good education. One of the business leaders that signed the letter his success is not a result of his genius, but by political connections with tax payer's money, 5 ml from the JEDC (for me that smacks on corruption). While others saw tax money diverted from poor black communities to be used for gentrification. Jacksonville have demonstrated that a vibrant economic high tide dose not raise all boats. It is treachery to claim it is in the interest of the students, motivated by self-serving motives. With the travesty that took place in the last gubernatorial election the aim of the business leaders are acting in a surreptitious move as a precursor for the governor to run roughshod and bust unions and bring a peonage service workers force to Florida. The Governor wants to take collective bargaining out of the state constitution! Business leaders (signatories to the letter) your request is merely a sham and bamboozle! Be prudent people from around the world are not taking well to dictators. Respectfully, Edward Exson, Sr. Citizen, I concur....

Millions of non-white students are locked into "dropout factory" high schools, where large percentages do not graduate, and few are well prepared for college or a future. Schools in low-income communities remain highly unequal in terms of funding, qualified teachers, curriculum and infrastructure. While many cities came under desegregation court orders during the civil rights era, most suburbs, because they had few minority students at that time, did not. When minority families began to move to the suburbs in large numbers, there was no plan in place to attain or maintain desegregation, appropriately train teachers and staff, or recruit non-white teachers to help deal with new groups of students. Over eighty-five percent of the nation's teachers are white, and little progress is being made toward diversifying the nation's teaching force. I am not sure why a lawsuit similar to the 1954 Brown case has not occurred against state's and local school districts as it relates to modern day segregation. For much of the ninety years preceding the Brown case, race relation in the U.S. had been dominated by racial segregation. This policy had been endorsed in 1896 by the United States Supreme Court case of Plessy v. Ferguson, which held that as long as the separate facilities for the separate races were equal, segregation did not violate the Fourteenth Amendment ("no State shall... deny to any person... the equal protection of the laws."). The plaintiffs in Brown asserted that this system of racial separation, while masquerading as providing separate but equal treatment of both white and black Americans, instead perpetuated inferior accommodations, services, and treatment for black Americans. Racial segregation in education varied widely from the 17 states that required racial segregation to the 16 that prohibited it. I maintain that if we are to continue along a path of deepening separation and entrenched inequality it will only diminish our common potential, and continue to build/fill prisons and add to greater tax burdens.

Our commitment continues. facebook.com/BPAmerica twitter.com/BP_America youtube.com/bp Soon a year will have passed since the Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf. From the beginning, we have taken responsibility for the cleanup. Our commitment to the Gulf remains unchanged, as does our responsibility to keep you informed. Committed to the Gulf No oil has ”owed into the Gulf since July 15th. As our efforts continue, nearly 100% of the waters are open and the beaches are clean and open. To ensure its safety, Gulf seafood has been more rigorously tested by independent researchers and experts than any other seafood in the world. To date, BP has spent more than $13 billion in clean-up costs. Restore the Environment An additional $282 million has been spent on environmental issues, including wildlife rescue and restoration of wildlife refuges across the region. We have also committed $500 million to the Gulf of Mexico Research Institute to fund scienti“c studies on the potential impact of the spill. Help to Rebuild the Economy $5 billion in claims have already been paid. Weve committed $20 billion to an independent fund to pay for environmental restoration and all legitimate claims, including lost incomes. More than $200 million in grants have been made to the Gulf Coast States to promote tourism and seafood. Learn and Share the Lessons This was a tragedy that never should have happened. Our responsibility is to learn from it and share with competitors, partners, governments and regulators to help ensure that it never happens again. We know we havent always been perfect but we are working to live up to our commitments, both now and in the future. For more information, please visit bpamerica.com.

With one of the most difficult schedules in the NFL for the 2011 season; the Jacksonville Jaguars will play three nationally televised prime-time games this season. Two of the three games will be in the friendly confines of Everbank Field on Monday Night Football, one versus the Baltimore Ravens on October 24th and the other on December 5th versus the San Diego Chargers. The third prime-time game will be in the Atlanta, Georgia Dome versus the Falcons. The game in the Dome will be televised on the NFL network on December 15th. The Jags finished at .500 last season with a record of 8-8. This year they look to improve on that mark, but it wont be easy. Opponents this year were a combined 133-123 in the 2010 season.

HCOW"("RTKPEG"JCNN"UJTKPGTU" JQUV"FKCDGVGU"ENCUUKE TALLAHASSEE, Today, Florida A&M University (FAMU) signed an agreement with the Prince Hall Shriners Foundation (PHSF) to host the 3rd Annual Diabetes Classic. The Classic is scheduled for Saturday, October 1, which will feature a weekend of activities including a golf tournament, parade, health screenings and seminars and the football game between FAMU and Delaware State University. Florida A&M University is pleased to partner with the Prince Hall Shriners Foundation for the third Annual Diabetes Classic,Ž said James H. Ammons, president of FAMU. I am confident that this will be a successful partnership as we support a great cause.Ž The Classic is designed to bring awareness to the community about diabetes and raise funds for not only diabetes but for FAMUs athletics department. Diabetes is very personal to me,Ž said Oliver Washington Jr., president of the Prince Hall Shriners Foundation and chairman of the Prince Hall Shriners Diabetes Football Classic. I have dedicated my life completely to diabetes. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4 a.m. I wake up and take my wife to the clinic. My wife is not obese nor does the history of diabetes run in her family. We hear that individuals get diabetes because of family history, but that is not true. We have to have a new conversation about people of color and diabetes. If we d ont do anything about it, by 2025 the total number of people with diabetes will make up the population of 17 states in the U.S.Ž OCIKE"URNKV"CV"JQOG The thought of falling behind 2-0 at home in an NBA playoff series must have been dreadful for the Orlando Magic. But after losing game 1 against the high-flying Atlanta Hawks 103-93, the possibility of going to the ATL on Good Friday down 2-0 could easily serve as a precursor to crucifixion for the Magics championship hopes. With that reality in mind... enter Dwight Howard with a determination to do what ever it took to get the split at home and go to Atlanta with the best of 7 series tied at one a piece. Howard left it all on the court after a 48 minute, 33 point, and 19 rebound performance in route to a 88-82 Magic victory. I just didnt want to give them a chance to win.Ž Howard said afterwards. I trust my teammates. I just felt like I needed to be on the floor.Ž RTKOG"VKOG"LCIWCTU OKCOK" JGCV"IGVVKPI"KV"FQPG Ngdtqp"Lcogu"*nghv+."Ejtku."Dquj*egpvgt+."Fyc{pg"Ycfg"*tkijv+ The Miami Heat quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first round of the eastern conference NBA playoffs by employing a relentless and suffocating defense against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat defense, led by LeBron James, who finished the regular season as one of the leagues top ten defenders, matched up with the speedy 76ers and overwhelmed them. The Heat players refer to their style of defensive play as: being on a string.Ž As one player rotates out to guard perimeter jump shooters, another player simultaneously shifts to shut down passing lanes. The Heat won game two to successfully defend thier home court as well as maintain the homecourt advantage. Game three will be played on Wednesday night in Philadelphia. The Players Championship at Sawgrass will be held in Ponte Vedra May 12-15. Tim Clark hopes to defend the title he won last year even though he has been hampered since last season with nagging neck and elbow injuries. When asked if he would participate in this years Players, Clark responded, I will be in attendance and I hope to be able to participate.Ž Defending wont be easy though, as the field is likely to include Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald, Matt Kuchar, Greme McDowell, Jim Furyk, and Tiger Woods. All of which are among the top players in the world. Tiger Woods is looking to reclaim another Players Title as well as his playing prowess, and if his play at The Masters is any indicator of the current state of Tigers golf game... It appears that Tiger is certainly very close to being back in pre-scandal form. Ft0"Lcogu"Cooqpu."Rtgukfgpv."HCOW """"""""" Pqdng"Qnkxgt"Ycujkpivqp."Lt0."Rtgukfgpv."RJUH

Tuesday morning while he
Sand his wife were fishing at
Julington Creek.
Family members say the
couple fished almost week-
ly at the creek from their

A neighbor called for help after hearing Mrs. Jones
screaming for help and stating that her husband could
not swim. However, many say the water is murky and
difficult to swim in. The Jones' were about to celebrate
50 years of marriage. He had been preaching for about
35 years.

Growing Gas Prices
President to Begin
Investigation


odge's 141st
The Most Worshipful Grand Master Anthony T. Stafford, Sr., at 48, is
the youngest Grand Master elected to serve in this position. He was elect-
ed at the age of 47. In the past, those in this position have been over 50.
But the younger age did not spark any fear in this Grand Master as he
served possibly the largest attendance during this 141st Communication in
Jacksonville from April 15 to April 18, 2011.
Grand Master Stafford laid out his plans for the organization to continue
to grow and serve. He stated that he will continue to build relationships
and work to upgrade and build for the future.
His first effort will go towards activating all 138 Lodges.
The historical 104 year old building on Broad Street will complete its
renovation and office space will be made available for rent. It sits across
" from the Duval County Court House, which is scheduled to be completed
soon. Such renovations will bring income to the organization and allow
g them to increase their presence among our youth; feed the hungry and offer
4 more scholarships for those who are motivated through them, to continue
their education.
Grand Master Stafford said he plans to spend his five-year term in a very
c constructive manner as the organization increase their efforts to work with
the young men from 9 to 18. His plan list is long but achievable.


Causes
Fraud


President Obama said Thursday that the Justice
Department will attempt to find out if there are cases of
fraud or manipulation in oil markets which is causing
the increase in gasoline to $4.00 per gallon.
The president said, "We are going to make sure no one
is taking advantage of the American people for their
own short-term gain."
President Obama said that this increase in the price of
gas is causing a hardship on Americans at a time when
things are already tough.
Attorney General Holder said he will press ahead with
the investigation, but did not cite any current evidence
of intentional manipulation of oil and gas prices or
fraud.
President Obama said he is committed to making sure
there is no fraud or any form of cheating.

leacners are not me prooiem at tne intervene ocnools!

Responding to the business leaders, calling for an independent board with power to hire and fire principals,
teachers and school personnel (TU letters from readers).
Teachers are not the problem at the Intervene Schools!
Instead the leaders should be asked where the outcry is for the depressed/ dysfunctional communities that the
Intervene Schools are located. With your silence on those conditions for years you did in fact sanctioned the sta-
tus quo.
How does one expect those failing students to excel with the pernicious atrocious effects of policy, practices,
preachers, politicians and most parents that they have to endure?
Many factions are culpable for the conditions thrust on these children. The business leaders basically have had
a zero sum total effect in uplifting the distressed communities, or the students that they purport to enrich their
lives with a good education.
One of the business leaders that signed the letter his success is not a result of his genius, but by political con-
nections with tax payer's money, 5 ml from the JEDC (for me that smacks on corruption). While others saw tax
money diverted from poor black communities to be used for gentrification.
Jacksonville have demonstrated that a vibrant economic high tide dose not raise all boats. It is treachery to claim
it is in the interest of the students, motivated by self-serving motives.
With the travesty that took place in the last gubernatorial election the aim of the business leaders are acting in
a surreptitious move as a precursor for the governor to run roughshod and bust unions and bring a peonage serv-
ice workers force to Florida. The Governor wants to take collective bargaining out of the state constitution!
Business leaders (signatories to the letter) your request is merely a sham and bamboozle! Be prudent people
from around the world are not taking well to dictators.

Edward Exson, Sr.

SchoolsToday in the U. S. A.

Schools in the United States are more segregated today than they have been in
more than over four decades. Millions of non-white students are locked into
"dropout factory" high schools, where large percentages do not graduate, and few
are well prepared for college or a future.

Schools in low-income communities remain highly unequal in terms of funding,
qualified teachers, curriculum and infrastructure. While many cities came under
desegregation court orders during the civil rights era, most suburbs, because they
had few minority students at that time, did not.

When minority families began to move to the suburbs in large numbers, there was
no plan in place to attain or maintain desegregation, appropriately train teachers and
staff, or recruit non-white teachers to help deal with new groups of students. Over
eighty-five percent of the nation's teachers are white, and little progress is being
made toward diversifying the nation's teaching force.

I am not sure why a lawsuit similar to the 1954 Brown case has not occurred
against state's and local school districts as it relates to modern day segregation. For
much of the ninety years preceding the Brown case, race relation in the U.S. had
been dominated by racial segregation.

This policy had been endorsed in 1896 by the United States Supreme Court case
of Plessy v. Ferguson, which held that as long as the separate facilities for the sepa-
rate races were equal, segregation did not violate the Fourteenth Amendment ("no
State shall... deny to any person... the equal protection of the laws.").

The plaintiffs in Brown asserted that this system of racial separation, while mas-
querading as providing separate but equal treatment of both white and black
Americans, instead perpetuated inferior accommodations, services, and treatment
for black Americans. Racial segregation in education varied widely from the 17
states that required racial segregation to the 16 that prohibited it.

I maintain that if we are to continue along a path of deepening separation and
entrenched inequality it will only diminish our common potential, and continue to
build/fill prisons and add to greater tax burdens.

"At no Time do we condone wrongness on either side of the wall".

Soon a year will have passed since the Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf. From the beginning, we have
taken responsibility for the cleanup. Our commitment to the Gulf remains unchanged, as does our responsibility
to keep you informed.

Committed to the Gulf
No oil has flowed into the Gulf since July 15th. As our efforts continue, nearly 100% of the waters are open and the
beaches are clean and open. To ensure its safety, Gulf seafood has been more rigorously tested by independent
researchers and experts than any other seafood in the world. To date, BP has spent more than $13 billion in
clean-up costs.

Restore the Environment
An additional $282 million has been spent on environmental issues, including wildlife rescue and restoration of wildlife
refuges across the region. We have also committed $500 million to the Gulf of Mexico Research Institute to fund
scientific studies on the potential impact of the spill.

Help to Rebuild the Economy
$5 billion in claims have already been paid. We've committed $20 billion to an independent fund to pay for environmental
restoration and all legitimate claims, including lost incomes. More than $200 million in grants have been made to the
Gulf Coast States to promote tourism and seafood.

Learn and Share the Lessons
This was a tragedy that never should have happened. Our responsibility is to learn from it and share with competitors,
partners, governments and regulators to help ensure that it never happens again.

We know we haven't always been perfect but we are working to live up to our commitments, both now and in
the future.

S TALLAHASSEE, Today, Florida A&M University (FAMU) signed an agreement with
the Prince Hall Shriners Foundation (PHSF) to host the 3rd Annual Diabetes Classic.
The Classic is scheduled for Saturday, October 1, which will feature a weekend of
r: activities including a golf tournament, parade, health screenings and seminars and the
football game between FAMU and Delaware State University.
"Florida A&M University is pleased to partner with the Prince Hall Shriners
Foundation for the third Annual Diabetes Classic," said James H. Ammons, presi-
dent of FAMU. "I am confident that this will be a successful partnership as we sup-
port a great cause."
The Classic is designed to bring awareness to the community about diabetes and

Classic. "I have dedicated my life completely to diabetes. Every Monday, Wednesday
and Friday at 4 a.m. I wake up and take my wife to the clinic. My wife is not obese nor does the history of diabetes run in her family. We hear that individuals get diabetes
because of family history, but that is not true. We have to have a new conversation about people of color and diabetes. If we don't do anything about it, by 2025 the total
number of people with diabetes will make up the population of 17 states in the U.S."

The Miami Heat quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first round of the eastern
conference NBA playoffs by employing a relentless and suffocating defense against
the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat defense, led by LeBron James, who finished the
regular season as one of the leagues top ten defenders, matched up with the speedy
76ers and overwhelmed them.
The Heat players refer to their style of defensive play as: "being on a string." As
one player rotates out to guard perimeter jump shooters, another player simultane-
ously shifts to shut down passing lanes. The Heat won game two to successfully
defend thier home court as well as maintain the homecourt advantage. Game three ,...

On March 27, teams from four Sam's CLub locations in our area
gathered together at Edward Waters College for the second time to see
which club can outplay the rest. The winner was to leave with bragging
rights for 2011.
But, great basketball games was not the only thing that this event
had lined up. The event began with a battle of the bands featuring drum-
lines from First Coast, Raines, Ribault, and Andrew Jackson High
Schools. Pepsi also sponsored a slam dunk contest for all attendees, with
prizes being awarded to the winner.
With food from Jerome Brown Barbecue, family friendly games,
and special celebrity visits including members of the Roar and
Jacksonville Giants, the event was fun for all.
All proceeds benefited Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
