Breaking the Law
When the New York Post staff person drew this car-
toon which was published in their paper, many were
upset and some attorneys said that a drawing such as
this which alludes to shooting the president of the
United States is a criminal violation. There is a law
that prohibits a person from inciting a crime or vio-
lence. This drawing was published in February 2009.
The complaint that many have is the fact that nothing
was done about this incident. Therefore, a number of
other such acts were committed and still the law
enforcement officers and the people stood by, citing
the right of free speech and the right to carry arms.
Many of the right wing politicians and common citi-
zens, some quietly and some very vocal appeared to be
agreeing with this behavior. In fact, when those who
did not agree but also did not go out to vote, it made it
appear that most Americans agreed that this, called by
some, criminal and disrespectful behavior was what
most wanted. If there is no punishment for misbehav-
ior, one would get comfortable and go even further.
When so call American leaders, politicians and busi-
ness persons say and do certain things publicly and the
comments are aired through all of the many outlets,
control is lost. You can't say if a person who commit
such a crime as this past weekend is mentally ill or evil.
Now we have political leaders resigning from their
jobs or positions expressing fear of the tea party and/or
the general public.
President Obama made a very strong speech at the
memorial service while others from his administration
read scriptures. What many really wanted to hear was
that law enforcement departments all over the country
would begin immediately, enforcing the laws that are
already in place that has gotten out of hand.
Saturday's shootings caused death, pain and possibly
permanent damage for those who were shot, for their
family, friends, and ordinary people.
Please, law enforcement officers, enforce the law. We
don't need to see or hear about more of this.
DON'T LEAVE YOUR CAR
RUNNING IT IS ILLEGAL
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office issued a statement
advising that the cold weather does not make it legal
for you to leave your motor running, and keys in the
ignition. Therefore, when the weather report advises
that the temperature is going to be very low, and you
wish to warm up your car before leaving put on a lot
of warm clothing and stay with your vehicle. To leave
it is not safe. You could get a ticket or the vehicle could
get stolen. Be Safe!

A CALL TO
THE BLACK CHURCH
By: Bruce A. Davis
One evening I stood on a corner and watched a lot of young black males sell drugs while a caravan of
cars pulled up to the same house as if they were placing orders at a fast food pickup window.
Directly across the street I saw a Black Church. The members were in the parking lot greeting one anoth-
er before they attended service. No one bothered to even look across the street.
I don't think Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have turned his head to the negative activity in his back-
yard were he alive today. He probably would have walked across the street and talked to the black males
and found out what kind of level they were on before trying to raise their conscienceness. I wouldn't have
been surprised either if many of them stopped their activities to at least hear what he had to say.
At the turn of the century, secular organizations The National Association for the Advancement of
Colored People (NAACP), The Garvey Movement, and the Nation of Islam became prominent proponents
for the black cause. The Black Church was referred to as do-nothing institutions because its influence had
The civil rights movement sparked a resurgence in the Black Church. The movement was led by Dr. King,
who transformed it from a passive institution to an instrument for social change.
Dr. King preached and argued that religion has a social as well as a spiritual mission, and that it should
be concerned with the whole person and not just the soul.
Noted black scholar Eric Lincoln wrote in his analysis of the Black Church, The State of Black America,
"[t]he Black Church is alive, alert, addressed to the realities of our times." A lot has waned in fourteen
During the Jim Crow era the Black Church became the most important economic institution in the black
community. It had to steel itself against the economic woes brought on by the Jim Crow laws. As a result,
insurance companies, mutual associations, banks, and educational institutions were created. When the
Civil War ended, the Black Church immediately stepped forth to construct educational institutions for the
The same impetus is needed now more than ever if the Black Church is to become a great institution pro-
ducing programs and solutions for our ravished and impoverished communities.
Long before the government implemented social and welfare programs the Black Church was serving as
a social institution, a social clearing house for the betterment of its people.
It might benefit the black community to delve into the civil rights era and understand better the role the
Black Church played socially in our communities. We could probably create more solutions to combat the
social ills that fluctuate daily in our communities. After all, Dr. King's dream wasn't only about civil rights
or race; it was also targeted at the chaos in the black community.

news of singer Teena Marie making
her transition on Sunday. According
to Radiofacts.com, Marie suffered
from grand ma seizures. The med-

her family, friends and fans. She will
be truly missed. Perhaps Teena and

definitely have a success story in the making. Caroline
Sunshine is an actress who has discovered at a young age
that a dream is just not something to fantasize about and
when you do make it happen you must continue the hard
work to keep it going. Sunshine became involved with the
arts at age three taking ballet lessons and landing her first
play lead as Goldilocks in Kindergarten. Sunshine was born
in Atlanta, Georgia but reared in Southern California. In
keeping with her training, she danced competitively with
The South Coast Performance Arts Studio in Tustin, CA.
and during her six grade year, she booked her first commer-
cial for "Amazing Allysen, The Talking Doll."
2010 turned out to be a stellar year for Sunshine.
She had her first feature movie released where she plays
Barbara Winslow in last summer's hit "Marmaduke" for
20th Century Fox Pictures, based on the dog in the famous
cartoon strip. She also is a regular cast member of the
Disney TV Channel smash hit show "Shake It Up" where
she plays European exchange student Tinka Hessenheffer
who has a twin brother Gunther played by Kenton Duty.
What is the set like when her and Duty, who also has the
right energy and fire, come together? Sunshine laughs, "It's
amazing! Oh my God! On the projects that I have worked on
before "Shake It Up," they didn't have a lot of kids my own
age so meeting Kenton was really awesome. He plays my
bother on the show but we kind of
have that same like relationship off the

must always prepare for the unexpected particularly script
lines which change many times during the week before the
final draft is done. Sunshine sighs, "That's one of the chal-
lenges of working on a TV sitcom. The script is always
changing. We're always trying to make it as funny as possi-
ble, put the best script forward. The funny thing is that we
go to a table read in the morning and then we go to rehearse
at two o'clock and the script has already changed. Then we
get home and the script has changed again. So it's a lot of
working on it and working on it, working at it to make it
right. But when you get it right, and you get like oh that's
exactly how I wanted that line to be and that's exactly how
I wanted that scene to go, it feels incredible."
The way Sunshine describes her audition for this
part actually details her work ethic and determination. She
paints the picture, "I always say that auditioning is the work
and then getting the job is kind of like the icing on the cake.
I went to the audition then went to a call back and then a
final call back. On my first audition I was the only one there.
On my final audition there were three other girls in the wait-
ing room. It's always so interesting to be face to face with
your competition. When I read the first sides for Tinka I just
knew that I had to do this part. I wasn't going to have it any
other way. I think of myself as a very determined person and
when I read the sides I just thought this is an extraordinary
character. I just saw so many unique traits and little quarks
and I could picture her in my head. When I read sides for the
first time I visualize the characters in my head and their
mannerisms and how they would look on me and different
things like that. I just felt so in click with the character so I
decided to into the audition and put my best foot forward
and now I get to live my dream of playing Tinka on "Shake
It Up" and it's amazing!"

When I awoke on Christmas morning I was over
4,000 miles from my home on American Beach. A few
days earlier my niece, Ivory Jo Rosier and I had made
our first pilgrimage to the land of our ancestors on the
west coast of Africa. Departing from Dulles Airport in
freezing temperatures, we were eager to be leaving
behind snow and ice covered grounds. We had board-
ed South African Airways led with a crew of three
African pilots and eight attendants for a seven-hour
nonstop flight to the other side of the Atlantic. The 777
wide body jet landed moments before daybreak with
the moon shinning brightly on the lovely seaport town
of Dakar, the capitol of Senegal. Our coats, wool
scarves and gloves were quickly shed as we rushed to
bask in the 86 degree temperatures and warm sea
waters on the western shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
The city of Dakar is similar in many ways to the
Florida First Coast. Our million mark populations are
comparable, Dakar is a port city; the people were as
warm and friendly as the people of Femandina
Beach/Amelia Island. The variety of couscous, rice,
vegetable, chicken, lamb, fish, seafood, desserts, bev-
erages and other dishes were most delicious and thus I
felt quite at home.
The invitation to attend a three week long 3rd
World Festival of Black Arts and Cultures initiated
from a tour and talk on American Beach that I had
recently given to a 14 member delegation of politicians
and journalists from West and Central Africa. As
guests of Monsieur Moussa SY, Mayor of Parcelles
Assainies, a Ville in Dakar and President du Groupe
Liberal, we were thrilled to participate in the 2nd
Edition Festival of Arts. The city of Parcelles Assainies
showcased the talents of over 125 residents in the
municipal stadium at the site of the Mayor's office.
The ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor SY, and
Madame Ndeye Khady Diop, Ministre d' Etat Ministre
de le famille, launched the opening of the cultural fes-
tival and art market place where local artists sold their
wares were among many highlights for local residents.
We enjoyed several evenings of historical and cultural
My niece and I also were Mayor SY's VIP guests
at the nation's 3rd World Festival of Black Arts and
Cultures. During the festivals we met quite a number
of the 2,000 top cultural artists from more than 60
countries worldwide. International renowned perform-
ing artists included architects, actors and actresses,
dancers, film makers, musicians, photographers,
painters, scholars, writers and various other art disci-
plinarians. We were privileged to attend a Round
Table Forum held in our hotel where the Honorable
Abdoulaye Wade, President of the Republic of Senegal
presided. Activities were held in several of the nine-
teen villes of Dakar including, Saint-Louis Island and
Goree Island. Accessible only by boat, and once there
the only means of getting around is pedestrian trans-
portation, the 45-acre Gorre Island is most noted as the
Holocaust from 1544-1848 where Africans were sold
in the Atlantic slave trade.
One glorious day after another we experienced
amazing adventures, joys, marvels and wonders.
Scheduled activities began at 9:00 a.m. with the last
venue concerts or theatre ending long after midnight.
Senegal's 3rd Word Festival of Black Arts served as a
gathering for thousands of African Diaspora attending
from America, Belgium, Brazil, Bermuda, Canada, the
Caribbean, Cuba, France, Germany, Haiti, the
Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, the United
Kingdom, Venezuela, the Virgin Islands and other
nations who made the Journey Home to talk and heal
with our African kinsmen. These words of Nelson
Mandella to Randall Robinson seemed the universal
threads that have held the Diaspora together after cen-
turies in exile and over countless miles. "The blood
that unites us is thicker than the water that divides us."
In Senegal we walked on the "Red Carpet," the
Pageant "Runway" and experienced a "Magic Carpet
Ride" of our lifetime. To Mother Africa, 'we shall

If you take a rudimentary glance at the governmen-
tal workings of any ethnic group compared to Blacks
and you will see obvious differences in what is desired
and what is accomplished by ethnic representatives.
Jews in Congress, state legislatures and in local
government commissions or councils demand that
interest groups hire Jewish lobbyists, they demand
government contracts for Jewish businesses, they rise, stand up and speak
out about any issues that would reflect negatively on Jewish culture and his-
torical events like the Holocaust.
Cubans have the same demands for Cubans. Even Haitian elected offi-
cials do as much as they can for America's Haitian residents and communi-
Every racial group in office today other than our representatives realizes
that elected officials main tasks are to divide up the money! Nothing is
required of elected officials except they must pass appropriation bills that
will allocate money to schools, law enforcement, environmental protection,
health care and so forth.
OK, while other ethnic groups can point to jobs, contracts, museums, sta-
diums, highways and things like that, what are our claims to governmental
Black elected officials love to campaign on symbolism!
Don't get me wrong, there are a handful of health centers and other gov-
ernment entities that were created and funded by government but most
office holders are proudest of basically nothing.
Can I prove it? Yes!
You tell me if you've heard something like the following, "Vote for me. I
voted for a Black holiday. Vote for me, I passed a "Pants on the Ground" bill
to arrest Black youth with saggy pants. Vote for me. I passed a bill that will
place pictures of Black people acceptable to whites in a corner of the
Capitol or in City Hall."
And, the biggest claim to fame of all is, "Vote for me. I got the name of a
Well, it's no secret, I do have brain damage, but it seems to me. Our com-
munity needs services, we need jobs and we need money!
No matter what government calls our neighborhoods we make up our
own names anyway. Anybody that has lived in Atlanta more than 40 years
knows where Buttermilk Bottom is, or was. Miami natives know where
Overtown is. LA residents can tell you where South Central is. We named
Auburn Avenue "Sweet Auburn". We named Tobacco Road.
When Jesus was in the wilderness, Satan offered Jesus the Kingdoms
of the world. Jesus didn't need Kingdoms from Satan. The Kingdoms
already belonged to the Father of Jesus! We don't need modern day devils
to do something for us that we can do for ourselves.
We don't need government to hand pick our community heroes so gov-
ernment can make sure no Muslims, Yorubas, Black Nationalists, freedom
fighters or revolutionaries are recognized.
We need the same things from government that other racial and ethnic
groups get. We need some of the tax dollars that we pay to government to
come back to Black communities in the form of jobs, contracts, better
schools, accessible health care programs and the like.
We will trade government symbolism for government money any day of
Instead of fighting for holidays, maybe one day our elected officials will

S COMMUNITY O
Teaching Tolerance in Our Schools
By: Maureen Costello
Sometimes the most important lessons learned at school don't come from a class-
room. They come from how a school reacts to ugly incidents of bias and prejudice. When
a principal learns that nasty slurs are being used in the school or that students are being
bullied because of their race or ethnicity, it can be tempting to deny it.
It can be tempting to resort to the old refrain, "That doesn't happen at our
school." But it does. And when it happens, it must be addressed.
Recently, a principal in the metro Atlanta area had to address bias on campus.
Where other school leaders might have denied or minimized the incidents, this one set a
positive example by confronting the situation head-on. And it wasn't a pretty situation:
A teacher was accused of referring to Latino students as "beaners." At the same school,
which will not be named here due to the nature of these allegations, a student was being
bullied because she is Latina.
It's enough to upset any parent. Not surprisingly, a parent met with the principal
about it. She was accompanied by Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia
Association of Latino Elected Officials.
The principal and teacher profusely apologized. The teacher said she didn't real-
ize the term she used was derogatory, noting that she picked it up from the students. It
was a remarkable example of how an intolerant atmosphere can grow within a school,
even among adults when they don't recognize a term as hurtful and offensive.
The teacher pledged to stop using the term and the principal agreed to add it to
the list of curse words students can't use at the school. These actions send a clear mes-
sage to students that such language is not acceptable. The principal also pledged to inves-
tigate the behavior of some students to get to the bottom of the bullying issue.
He even indicated that he's willing to taking additional steps to curb future inci-
dents. The Southern Poverty Law Center's Teaching Tolerance program has offered free
diversity training to the staff as a result.
The school's quick, no-nonsense response is commendable. The principal recog-
nized a key responsibility for educators -- ensuring all students feel safe and welcome at
This includes recognizing hurtful language that singles out students because of
their race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. If adults don't stop intolerant behav-
ior, students will assume it's acceptable and engage in it. All too often, bullying begins
with name-calling and the casual use of slurs.
That's not to say addressing this issue isn't difficult. Race and ethnicity are sen-
sitive subjects for people. No one wants to bring negative attention to their school. But
children learn -- and learn to use wisely -- vocabulary through instruction. Without direc-
tion, these incidents can occur in any school. That's why it is so important for educators
to be prepared to address them.
The greater offense is for a school to deny that there's a problem and allow an
atmosphere of intolerance to take root. That's something that shouldn't happen in any

NBA'S MAGIC MAKE THEIR MARK
Internal Autograph Session Raises Thousands for Organizations
On Tuesday, Jan, 4, at the Amway Center, Orlando Magic players
and coaches participated in an internal autograph session for items to
be distributed to non-profit organizations, schools and charity events
throughout Central Florida. Each year the autographed items impact
more than 1,000 local organizations and raises an estimated $100,000
for area charitable activities.
Orlando's NBA franchise since 1989, the Magic's mission is to be
world champions on and off the court, delivering legendary moments
every step of the way. On the court, Orlando has won five division
championships (1995, 1996, 2008, 2009, 2010), had six 50-plus win
seasons, and won the Eastern Conference title in 1995 and 2009. Off
the court, on an annual basis, the Orlando Magic gives more than $2
million to the local community by way of sponsorships of events,
donated tickets, autographed merchandise, scholarships and grants.
Orlando Magic community relations programs impact an estimated
75,000 kids each year, while a Magic staff-wide initiative provides
more than 6,000 volunteer hours annually. In addition, over the last
21 years nearly $16 million has been distributed to local non-profit
community organizations via the Orlando Magic Youth Fund
'.i (OMYF-MFF), a McCormick Foundation Fund since 1994, which
serves at-risk youth. Ticket highlights in the new Amway Center
include: 2,500 seats priced $15 or less, 7,000 seats priced $25 or less,
and for the first time ever a $5 per game ticket while supplies last. For
ticket information log on to www.orlandomagic.com or call 407-89-
Through the National Basketball Association's NBA Cares pro-
gram, the league, players and teams have donated more than $145
million to charity, provided more than 1.4 million hours of hands-on
service to communities around the world, and created more than 525
places where kids and families can live, learn, or play. The NBA is
broadcast in 215 countries and territories in 41 languages.
Williams YMCA receives USTA Florida Grant to expand 10-under tennis
By MIKE BONTS
Jacksonville's Williams Family YMCA has received a $1,000 grant for 10-and-Under Tennis equipment from the United States Tennis Association-Florida's (USTA Florida)
"Share the Love" grant initiative to grow the game with beginning children.
"In the past there has been a high demand for our beginner junior tennis programs," said Tennis Director John Dister. "We want to meet the needs of the community by offer-
ing programs that incorporate the 10-and-Under Tennis format. Once small children start lessons they can quickly lose interest in tennis. This is often because younger chil-
dren are unable to learn and enjoy tennis from the beginning when standard-sized equipment and courts are being used."
The 10-and-under Tennis play format is designed for children featuring smaller court sizes, racquet sizes, foam and decompressed balls, a simple scoring system, and net
heights adjusted to ease kids into the sport. Similar mini-tennis formats have long been popular in Europe, where current stars such as Roger Federer, Justine Henin and Kim
Clijsters first learned the game with age-adjusted racquets, balls and court sizes. To see a video of the 10-and-under Tennis play format in action go to: http://10andunderten-
"The 10-and-Under Tennis program will allow the YMCA to scale the game down to the children's sizes," Dister said. "Also, the program will allow young children to enjoy
and be successful in tennis from the beginning."
USTA Florida annually directs 90% of member dollars back into the community to support tennis programs and projects throughout Florida. USTA Florida's Share the Love
grant program helps fund tennis programs and projects throughout Florida communities during challenging economic times. Funding priorities include 10-and-under Tennis
and Jr. Team Tennis (coordinator training, start-up, etc.), public facility funding (schools, parks, conversion to permanent 10-and-under play format courts, etc.), communi-
ty tennis awareness (innovative pro-active start-ups, program expansion), school programs and senior tennis programs/projects.
"We look forward to hearing of the further success of this program," said USTA Florida Director of Community Tennis Linda Curtis. "It is with USTA membership dollars
that we are able to offer program grants to communities like these."

How Do Penguins Keep Warm?
There are many animals and birds living in the lands of cold, snow and ice. My cousin, Pearly the Polar Bear, lives up north in the
Arctic. Penguins do not live with the polar bears in the area near the North Pole. They live in areas further south. Some live in deep
cold, for example on the continent of Antarctica, near the South Pole. Some live in warmer areas around the world. Layers of fat and
feathers keep penguins warm. Penguins are one of my favorite animals. They are such fun to watch. I almost think that they know
they are putting on a show! Speaking of penguins and shows...can you fill in the blanks to answer my new joke below?

if she spoke a word to anyone. Moore is also accused of
"inappropriately hugging" church members several dif-

Groover is charged with three counts of custodial sex-
ual battery after police said he molested a 13-year-old
boy. Groover admitted to having had at least 20 different
sexual encounters with the boy inside the church and sent
nude photos of himself to the victim. He told police that
he had a relationship with the young teen.

n r 1 1THE STAR
Don't share your
credit with thieves.
As our lives become more integrated with
technology, keeping our private information
confidential becomes more and more difficult.
Electronic transactions can leave you vulnera-
ble to fraud and other crimes.
What About Those Passwords?
Whether on the Internet or using an online
banking program, you are often required to use
a password. The WORST ones to use are the
ones that you think of first-your own or your
spouse's name, maiden name, pets' and chil-
dren's names, etc. The BEST passwords mix
numbers with upper and lowercase letters. A
password not found in the dictionary is even
better. There are programs that will try every
word in the dictionary in an effort to crack your
security. Avoid breaks in your security by doing
* Change your password regularly.
* Memorize your password. If you have several,
develop a system for remembering them. If you
do write down the password, keep it at home or
hidden at work. Don't write your password on
a post-it note and stick it on your monitor or
* Set up a special account or set aside a differ-
ent computer at work for temporary help and
other unauthorized users.
* If you have the option of letting your com-
puter or a web site remember a password for
you, DON'T USE IT! Anyone who uses your
machine will have automatic access to infor-
mation that is password protected.
* WEAR reflective material so motorists can
see you more easily.
Using ATMs and Long Distance Phone
It is extremely important for you to protect
your Personal Identification Number (PIN). A
PIN is a confidential code that is issued to the
cardholder to permit access to that account.
Your PIN should be memorized, secured and
not given out to anyone-even family members
or bank employees. The fewer people who have
access to your PIN, the better.
* NEVER write your PIN on ATM or long-dis-
tance calling cards.
* DON'T write your PIN on a piece of paper
and place it in your wallet. If your wallet and
card are lost or stolen, someone will have
everything they need to remove funds from
your account, make unauthorized debit pur-
chases, or run up your long-distance phone bill.
* BE SURE to take your ATM receipt to record
transactions and match them against monthly
statements. Dishonest people can use your re-
ceipt to get your account number.
* NEVER leave the ATM receipt at the site.
When You Shop in Cyberspace
You can prevent problems BEFORE they occur
* Doing business with companies you know and
trust. If you haven't heard of the company, re-
search it or ask for a paper catalog before you
decide to order electronically. Check with your
state consumer protection agency on whether
the company is licensed or registered. Fraudu-
lent companies can appear and disappear very
quickly in cyberspace.
* Check to see if your computer connection is
secure. In Internet Explorer, for example, you
should see a small yellow lock in the lower right
comer of the screen. In Netscape, a secure con-
nection is shown by a small lock highlighted in
yellow in the lower left corer of the screen.
* Using a secure interest browser that will en-
crypt or scramble purchase information. If there
is no encryption software, consider calling the
company's 800 number, faxing your order, or
paying with a check.
* Never give a bank account or credit card num-
ber or other personal information such as your
Social Security number and date of birth to any-
one you don't know or haven't checked out.
And DON'T provide information that is unnec-
essary to make a purchase. Even with partial in-
formation, con artists can make unauthorized
charges or take money from your account. If
you have an even choice between using your
credit card and mailing cash, check or money
order, use a credit card. You can always dispute
fraudulent credit card charges, but you can't get

The complainant, an older woman,
wanted her adult son, the defendant, .
to leave her home immediately. She
told police that because her son did
not contribute monetarily to the
household and was therefore not an
official resident, she wanted him out
of her house.
The defendant was extremely hostile toward the officer and remained so
even after he agreed to leave the premises and removed his property
from the house. This behavior continued to the point that the officer
asked the woman if she wanted her son physically removed from the
premises, to which she agreed.
As the defendant stood near the of-
ficer and spoke on the phone with
^ his sister, the officer overheard him
make what the officer took as a
threat to his person: "if this officer
S gets slick with me one more time,
I'm going to let him have it."
SThe officer immediately placed the
defendant into custody. The defen-
dant began to scream for his mother
as he was taken to the patrol car.
The officer advised him to stop and
get inside and when he would not,
the officer forcibly placed the man in the back seat.
The defendant requested that his property be released to sister, who ar-
rived on the scene a short time later. The defendant was transported and
booked into the PTDF.

A Florida woman has given new meaning to the term "internal medicine."
Law enforcement officials in Florida say they saw a bag of drugs fall from between Elizabeth Athenia Pro-
gris's legs after she showered in a county jail. The 22-year-old, identified as a "dancer/housewife," was dry-
ing off when a deputy reportedly saw a clear bag drop "from her genital area to the floor by her feet." The
bag contained pills which were later identified as Xanax.

Pharmacist Charged With Theft
of Prescription Painkillers
A Northeast Florida pharmacist has been charged by
Blackshear police with stealing more than 7,000 prescrip-
tion painkiller pills with a street value of $25,000 to
John Pearson, 46, of Fleming Island, Fla., is charged
with felony theft by taking, unlawful distribution of con-
trolled substances and possession ofhydrocodone, which is
a Scheduled III controlled narcotic.
Officials at the Rite Aid on U.S. 84 in Blackshear
launched an internal investigation when inconsistencies dur-
ing a recent pharmacy inventory were uncovered. Pearson
was taken into custody on Friday and was released on
$6,000 bail from Pierce County Jail.
According to police, Pearson stole 110 bottles of hy-
drocodone, a controlled narcotic pain reliever, over a two
year period beginning about the time Pearson went to work
at the drug store in October 2009. According to the U.S.
Drug Enforcement Administration, Hydrocodone is the
most frequently prescribed opiate in America but also one of
the most abused narcotic painkillers.
Anyone with more information about the case is
asked to call Blackshear police at (912) 449-7011. Callers
may remain anonymous.
Judges To Testify in JaxPort
Senior U.S. District Judge Henry Adams and Duval
County Judge James Ruth have been tapped as character
witnesses for former JaxPort Chairman Tony Nelson.
Nelson's lawyer, Curtis Fallgatter, was recently granted
approval for this motion by U.S. District Judge Timothy
Corrigan. Former Jacksonville Mayor John Delaney had
previously been listed as a defense witness and possible ex-
pert for the trial.
Fallgatter contends Nelson's relationship with the dredg-
ing operator, Lance Young, broke no laws. Young has
pleaded guilty to conspiracy and is expected to testify
against Nelson. The trial is scheduled to begin on Jan. 18.
Georgia Doctor Faces Federal Narcotics
A doctor in Alma, Ga. has been charged for illegally dispensing a controlled
narcotic cough syrup. The promethazine/codeine syrup, when mixed with carbonated
beverages or sometimes even hard candy, is known on the street as "purple drank".
William Morris Williams, who practices family medicine, is facing two counts
:f federal narcotics charges. According to a criminal complaint filed by prosecutors
Dec. 28 in U.S. District Court, Williams committed the crime on two separate occa-
sions in November 2009. He is accused of providing the syrup to a person identified
in the complaint only by the initials D.H., on Nov. 10 and Nov. 11.
The syrup is the key ingredient in "purple drank," an illegal recreational drink
made with a mixture of lemon-lime soda or hard fruit-flavored candy. In both forms.
the syrup creates a certain euphoria in its users while also depressing the nervous sys-
tem. The cough syrup itself is a combination antihistamine and cough suppressant
that can cause severe breathing problems in children, especially those 6 and younger.
Williams has been licensed to practice medicine in Georgia since 1965. His of-
rice, Total Health Services, a family practice and urgent care clinic, was at 204 S.
Dixon St., Alma. A Medical College of Georgia graduate, Williams' medical license
is set to expire on Nov. 30. Although state records show that Williams had staff priv-
-lages at Bacon County Hospital, the chief executive of its health system said that
Williams has not been associated with its hospital for years.
Williams will be arraigned Jan. 25 and if convicted, he faces up to one year in
prison and a fine up to $100,000 on each count.

P_ Man Indicted for
SA former Brunswick, Ga. man has
i to been charged with attempting to steal
More than $500,000 from Medicare
through two medical equipment sup-
pliers in Brunswick and Houston.
Samuel Curtis III, 37, operated
Preferred Prosthetics and Orthotics in
Brunswick and Team Orthotics and Prosthetics Inc. in Houston, where he now lives.
According to the indictment filed Tuesday, both companies claimed to be suppliers of
ankle braces, knee braces, back braces and other medical devices. It later came to light
that Curtis, assisted by others, routinely billed Medicare for medical devices that were
never provided to patients, not medically necessary, or not prescribed by a physician.
They stole the identification information of Medicare patients and their doctors and
used it to submit more than $500,000 worth of phony claims.
Curtis faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.
Man's Foot Found in Woods of St. John's
Citizens came upon a grotesque discovery early Friday morning when they
found what appeared to be a man's boot containing
what police believed to be the remains of a human
The boot and its contents were found in the
dense woods off State Road 16, just west of Inter-
state 95. Investigators and crime scene technicians
were dispatched to the site near Whisper Ridge
SDrive. Authorities have reason to believe that the
boot may have been moved to this location and was
-- later found by animals, as was indicated by the ad-
vanced level of decomposition.
'.. ... Police informed the media that it seemed to be a
'man's boot, size 11 or 12. It will be up to the med-
ical examiner's office to determine the victim's identity, but without more remains,
that may be unlikely if not impossible.
Investigators have decided to return to the site with more personnel and ca-
daver dogs to conduct a more thorough search, as the area is very large and is known
to be used by transients.
