It took 33 days of testimony, 400 pieces of evidence and more than 90 witnesses for the Florida jury to reach a verdict for Casey Anthony of not guilty of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Caseys attorney told the jury that she was a victim of an abusive upbringing. Casey continually changed her stories regarding her daughters disappearance and finally said she and her father found her floating in their above-ground pool. Much of the country is very disturbed, even though the judge gave her maximal sentence and fines for her four untruths to the police as they seek information on the cost to the community for Caseys many lies. Casey is scheduled to be free on July 17 and is also scheduled for a deposition regarding the story she told about a baby sitter and her job in Orlando. To avoid another such event, four states have drafted what they are calling, Caylees Law in which it will be a felony if a child is not reported missing within a certain number of hours. Florida is one of the states seeking the passage of such a law. If this law had been in place in 2008, Casey would not be going free this month. It was an awesome occasion as the City of Jacksonville, the nations 15th and Floridas largest city, watched its new mayor get sworn in with a theme, one vision, one city. As a very religious, giving man, Mayor Brown initiated his inauguration festivities with a mock ceremony the day before for the citys youth. Not using taxpayers money, Mayor Brown had a prayer breakfast with Bishop T. D. Jakes, Dallas, TX, as the main speaker. Other powerful men in the ministry joining him included a Hindu priest, a Jewish rabbi, and Father Peter Church from First Coast Christian Outreach. Bishop Jakes told the audience, Youve got a winner. He closed by saying to Mayor Brown, You da man, dude. Florida Senator Tony Hill and Audrey Moran served as master and mistress of ceremony. Mayor Browns mother and the mayors twin brother, Alden Brown, sat in the audience with many other family members. Also present was civil rights leader Martin Luther King III who said that he felt special just being here for this inauguration. Present was former Jacksonville mayors, Congresswoman Brown and Wilson, Sheriff Rutherford, and many more. Senator Hill and State Representative Mia Jones are now members of the mayors staff. Senator Hill resigned from his post, opening the door for a special election. Continued on Page B-1 Median titan, including Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, seeking to protect his News Corp. empire by stanching damage from a deepening phone-hacking scandal Thursday, is sacrificing the mass-circulation British weekly News of the World. The closure means the end of the 168 year old paper with a circulation of more than 2.5 million and generates about $61 million a year. The scandal has taken a toll on News Corp.-Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, the New York Post and the online app, The Daily, driving down its stock price. Some advertisers were fleeing. Fox News is known for passing on misinformation to the public. On February 14, 2003, a Florida Appeals Court ruled there is absolutely nothing illegal about deliberately lie or distort the news on a television broadcast. The final issue of News of the World would include no paid advertising. Tight end, John Mackey, who was the second tight end inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, died Wednesday. He was 69. Mackey had been dealing with frontotemoral dementia and became very confused. In 2006 he became angry when he saw Indianapolis Colts Marvin Harrison wearing the No. 88 jersey that he used to wear. He revolutionized the position during his nine seasons with the Baltimore Colts and served as the first president of the NFL players association. In Super Bowl V, he reeled in a pass while playing the Dallas Cowboys and scampered into the end zone for a then-Super Bowl record 75-yard touchdown reception. He finished his career with the San Diego Chargers. Mackey missed just one game during his 10-season career. The Carver County Sheriffs Office reports that the Rock and Roll Hall of Farner has fallen behind $368,382 on his 20-acre former home in the Minneapolis suburb that has been his home since 1980. However, he no longer lives there and had it leveled in 2005. The property is valued at $1.15 million. It is believed that the foreclosure will not place for the musician. There is so much happening with the banks and homeowners. Bank of America and its Countrywide unit is scheduled to pay $8.5 billion to settle claims that the lenders sold poor-quality mortgage-backed securities that went sour when the housing market collapsed. Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Pimco Investment Management, and Blackrock Financial argued that Countrywide enriched itself at the expense of investors by continuing to service bad loans while running up servicing fees. 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"HNQTKFCU"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT K P U K F G Opinion-Editorial...........A-2 Church....................A-3 Lifestyle.................A-4 Caribbean News.............A-5 Local-Florida/Georgia......B-1 Columns...................B-2 Sports....................B-4 Crime & Justice..(A).C&J-1-4 Prep Rap............(B).

Vjg"Rgp"Yknn Treasury Department officials have warned that the current $14.3 trillion debt ceiling has to be raised by August 2 to avoid a potential default. President Obama has the power to control this serious fight. The president said Thursday that he will not sign any agreement that fails to raise the debt ceiling beyond the 2012 election. However, he has not said that he will not protect this country and utilize the 14th Amendment for debt, even though Republican lawmakers have stated that they will take him to court if he uses the 14th Amendment to save Americans. Congress first placed a statutory limit on total federal debt in 1917 in the Second Liberty Bond Act. Since 1962 it has altered the limit through 74 separate measures, raising it 10 times since 2001. Debt being considered valid is completely different than defaulting on interest payments for that debt. You can only default on valid debt as determined by Congress. Therefore, it is recommended that our lawmakers first determine what debt is valid. In spite of how the majority in Washington continues to fight the president regarding the debt ceiling they are fighting harder to decrease social security, medicaid and medicare benefits. They continue to increase or retain tax benefits for the wealthy on the backs of middle and lower income Americans. Their fight reaps of greed and selfishness as regular Americans suffer. The present administration should not have continued the Bush tax benefits to the wealthy without a stipulation requiring them to create jobs. As it now stands, the tax benefits only place heavier pads in the pockets of the wealthy with no penalties if they dont contribute to the economy in a sharing manner. by Lonzie Leath EQPITGUUYQOCP"EQTTKPG"DTQYP"KU EWTTGPVN["KP"C"DCVVNG"HKIJVKPI"HQT"VJG RQNKVKECN"HWVWTG"QH"OKPQTKVKGU"KP"VJG UVCVG"QH"HNQTKFC0 Minorities have Fought too Hard for too Long to Take a Giant Leap Backwards, said Congresswoman Brown.

What Can One Person Do?Activist Reveals How One Act of Community Service Can Spark Thousands More Dont tell Lisa Sellman that one person cant make a difference. She knows better. Sellman, a community activist and lifelong volunteer, recently learned how one act of kindness can set off a chain reaction that can span the globe. It just started out with me asking a regional pet food company for a donation of dog food for Red Lake Rosies in Minnesota, said Sellman, a professional dog trainer and owner of a pet care business. I called Solid Gold Northland, and one of the marketing managers there advised me that they were trying to increase the number of people who liked them on Facebook, and that if I could get 40 new Facebook members to click on their like button, theyd give me $200 worth of pet food. So Sellman, who currently volunteers for six different community groups, sent a message out to all her Facebook friends inviting them to Solid Gold Northlands fan page on Facebook. Somehow, the invite made it to the Facebook page of The Patrick Miracle, a page devoted to the story of a two year old pitbull found by a janitor in a dumpster. Their Facebook page has charted over 109,000 like clicks from users. When the founders of the page posted Sellmans invite, Solid Gold Northland received more than 2,000 new fans from all over the world in the course of about 48 hours. When I contacted them the next week, they were blown away by how quickly the response took off, said Sellman, also author of the childrens book The Legend of the Wolves of Gunflint Lake (www.dreamcatcherpress.us), which contains the theme of the value of community service and which she hopes will serve to inspire others. As a result of the combined outreach, Solid Gold Northland and Chuck and Dons Pet Food Outlet have committed a donation of $2,000 worth of pet food, and Ive helped to forge new friends from other countries who all care about the same things I care about. And it all started with a simple posting on Facebook because I wanted to help a local animal shelter. Its been magical. Sellmans simple act was a drop in the bucket compared to her schedule of volunteer activities. She works as an after school care volunteer at the Minneapolis Indian Center, a special events assistant at the Loft Literary Center, a volunteer marketing director for canine events at the Gunflint Lodge (the real location contained in her childrens book), and a trail staff assistant with Wilderness Inquiry, where she and her husband take disabled children and adults on outdoor adventures throughout the US. Theyve been volunteers with this organization since 1997. Although I work hard, I love being able to serve my community. Sellman said. The people in all the organizations Im involved with, all share my values and my world view and they are my friends and my family. The people and the activities fill up my life with fun, joy and a purpose I could never have achieved any other way. It doesnt mean that I think everyone should take the same path that I have. I know most people dont have the time. My point is this: it only takes one simple act, one click of a mouse button to start a movement. It happened to me and it can happen to you. All you need to do is give it a shot. About Lisa Sellman: Lisa Sellman, owner and professional dog trainer at Aloha Pet Care & Dog Training, volunteers for half a dozen charitable organizations. She believes that community service is its own reward, a message that resonates throughout her new childrens book The Legend of the Wolves of Gunflint Lake.

By: Farris Long In 2008, a major turning point in America's history took place with the election of a black man to the highest office of our country. On Tuesday January 20th, 2009 Barack Obama was sworn in as the nation's 44th President of the United States and the first African-American to ever hold that office. On Friday, July 1st, 2011 another historic inauguration will take e. After 20 years, the voters of Jacksonville have once again voted to place a democrat at the helm of the city. Many people were on edge awaiting the results of this election because it meant far more than just a change of political parties in the mayoral seat. Pending the outcome, it meant that for the first time in the history of the city, an African-American man could potentially take the mayoral seat. What an amazing moment it was, when the final election results came in, and history indeed had been made. On May 18th the official announcement was made that Mayor-Elect Alvin Brown would be the city's next leader. While perusing various websites for voter comments and feedback, there were two key points that stood out. In the eyes of many of the voters, Mayor-Elect Brown seemed to have a more progressive plan for our city, and he seemed to connect well with the people. He made it quite clear that he was a product of this city, and many of the voters appreciated that. It was something they could relate to. In those forums many of the voters said they felt like he was more in touch with the everyday average Joe rather than his opponent was. In just a few short days, the mayor-elect will be sworn into office as Jacksonville's next mayor. We set out to learn more about our new mayor. And during a recent interview he had this to say, I'm just an ordinary guy who was raised by two strong women, my mother and grandmother, who instilled in us a sense of faith and hard work. The mayorelect went on to share a personal story about a time when he was asked to be in a play at school and declined because he felt he could not read at the level of the other kids. He went on to recount how his grandmother told him that he was indeed going to be in that play, and how daily bible reading was how she taught him to read. Through his mother and grandmother he learned early on, the value of education. It is no wonder that education was a major part of his mayoral campaign platform. When asked what he believed to be the key to success for this city, the Mayor-Elect shared that he believes that there is not just one key but manyand a good educational system along with more jobs are major components of that success. Another nugget he shared was the understanding that Jacksonville has a number of entrepreneurs and how he wants to assure that they have access to capital and credit to build strong businesses that can employ other workers and improve Jacksonville's overall economy. It Can Happen(part 1).PAGE B 2 THE STAR JULY 9, 2011 By: Lucius Gantt Who doesnt like a clown? Some people say everybody loves a clown and the Ringling Brothers and UniverSoul circus shows have perhaps the best clowns in the world. But the second best clowns are so-called Negro leaders! Good clowns are funny and what is funnier than people claiming to lead us with handkerchief heads, hats in hand and boot licking approaches to accomplish modern day Black progress? I say Negro leaders because Negro is an old term that refers to old times. New community leaders pop up all of the time but they come to us in our depressed, oppressed and exploited communities with aged tactics and strategies for Black progress. When we want to stand up, the Negro leaders want us to sit down or sit-in. When we want to swing, Negro leaders want us to sing. When we want to change government, Negro leaders want us to beg government and embrace political strategies that have historically failed and failed miserably! In 2012, as in many other years, we will be told that changes in politicians will result in changes in our lives. Government will be better because the politicians will be better, the Negro leaders say. The Gantt Report says any derivative of the current national, state and local governments is doomed to failure without significant and massive government system overhauls. Can I prove it? Yes! At 500 years after slavery days, if people are still protesting government policies by holding hands, swaying back and forth and singing We Shall Overcome, it should be clear to a blind person to see that the government has failed you. Still dont think Negro leaders are clowns? Why are comedians and pranksters the most sought after pundits on CNN, Fox, MSNBC and other news networks when Black philosophers, social scientists and experienced political professionals are never invited to share thoughts about world events? Clownish Negro leaders are always sought to share opinions because clowns can be controlled. A clown can be depended upon to come when his or her ringmaster says come, jump through a hoop when ordered to and to never say anything negative about the political circus. Negro leaders are called out when its time to perform and told to leave when the show is over. They seldom, if ever, stick around until community problems are solved. Back in the day, the Freedom Riders stuck with it until the job was done. SNCC stayed around until voters were registered and even SCLC keep bus boycotts going until transportation laws were changed. But todays clownish Negro leaders, pull up in a limo and give the same speech they give every day, take up a collection, leave the church and take the limo back to the airport all in a matter of hours. I love a good laugh but I would rather follow a modern-day Marcus, Malcolm, Martin or Mandela than a Bozo the Clown dipped in chocolate.!

ULYSSES W. WATKINS JR., MD HEALTH NOTESCONDIMENT GENERAL INFORMATIONSandwich ingredients beef, ham, cheese, and bread have all come under nutritional scrutiny. But what about mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup and other condiments? The two danger points here are sodium and, in one important case, fat. You can buy low-sodium mustard and Worcestershire sauce and lite versions of mayonnaise and even ketchup. Less familiar condiments such as chutney, horseradish, and salsa are flavorful alternatives with few nutritional drawbacks, except that a few brands may contain large amounts of salt. Mayonnaise. Hold the mayo is definitely the way to go: the only high-fat condiment, mayonnaise is an emulsion of oil, egg yolk, and vinegar; the regular version is almost 100 percent fat. However, since it is made with liquid vegetable oil (usually soybean), mayo is not particularly high in saturated fat. Despite its egg content, it contains only a small amount of cholesterol==about five milligrams per tablespoon. Thus, a mayonnaise that cholesterol-free is not an improvement. Homemade mayonnaise is not nutritionally superior to store-bought. A standard recipe calls for two egg yolks and one cup of oil. And since it is made with raw eggs and without preservatives, homemade mayonnaise may be a source of food poisoning due to salmonella. Products labeled salad dressing, as well as lightaaaaa, diet, or imitation mayonnaise in which water and starch or another thickener replace some of the oil may contain one-half to two-thirds the calories of real may, and less than half the fat. Theres even a tofu-based product with only one gram of fat per serving. If your palate demands real mayonnaise, use a teaspoonful rather that a tablespoonful on a sandwich, or blend the mayo with plain low-fat yogurt. Flavor yogurt with a little mustard, lemon juice, and pepper to add to the mayonnaise in chicken or tuna salad. Tartar sauce and the secret sauce used on fast-food hamburgers are both mayonnaisebased: substitute a light mayo or plain low-fat yogurt with a little chopped pickle mixed in. And although its not usually suggested as a low-fat substitute, even sour cream is a better choice than mayonnaise when youre making a dip: a tablespoon of sour cream has only about 25 calories and 2.3 grams of fat just one-quarter the calories and fat that are in mayonnaise. Using plain low-fat yogurt is even better. Ketchup. Although it consists mainly of tomatoes, the average ketchup is 20 percent sweetener and contains up to 180 milligrams of sodium per tablespoon. Even the national brand low-sodium contains practically no sodium at all. Other substitutes for ketchup lovers with a sodium problem include tomato paste or puree, or low-sodium or homemade spaghetti sauce (for use in recipes). Some brands of bottled Mexican salsa ranchero and taco sauce contain slightly less sodium than regular ketchup, as do Worcestershire, steak sauce, and pickle relish; most chili sauces, barbeque sauces, cocktail sauces have even more sodium than ketchup. Perhaps the best option is to make your own Mexican-style salsa cruda (raw sauce) a combination of chopped tomatoes, chilies, onions, lemon or lime juice, and spices, to satisfy your cravings for a topping with tomato flavor. Mustard. The natural pungency of mustard somewhat limits the amount your use, but even a tablespoonful can pack a major sodium wallop. If you need to watch your sodium intake buy a no-salt-added mustard; dilute the mustard with some plain low-fat yogurt; or mix your own from dry mustard powder (youll find basic directions on the package). Vary served with Indian food (but equally good with cheese, plain eats, and poultry). Sweet=and-spicy chutneys are fruit or vegetable based relishes. All contain negligible fat; however some are very high in sodium. Look for chutneys made from apples, tomatoes, cranberries, and other fruits at health food stores or specialty markets. If you cant find a salt-free chutney, choose one that has salt at the bottomofthe ingredients list. Or substitute apple, cranberry or other fruit sauces, which are low in sodium and are virtually fat-free.

Magnolia Pictures and Deep River Films presents a stirring, historical documentary titled Rejoice And Shout!Ž It features interviews from Smokey Robinson, Andra Crouch, Mavis Staples, Ira Tucker, Marie Knight, Willa Ward, Ira Tucker Jr., Anthony Heilbut, Bill Carpenter, Jacquie Gayles Webb, The Selvy Family and Darrel Petties. The project is directed by Don McGlynn and produced by Joe Lauro. This is a must see documentary on the history of Black Gospel Music. It goes back to the very first Black gospel record ever made which was a 78 rmp disc by the Dinwiddie Colored QuartetŽ recorded and released in 1902. The single was titled Gabriels Trumpet.Ž This project chronicles the evolution of the music from the slave fields to the artists who created the sounds then follows the musical arrangements and trends as they changed from the late 1800s to present. The film is loaded with historical live performances from some of the greatest of all times. This includes The Ward Singers, Mahalia Jackson, The Swan Silvertones, Dixie Humming Birds, James Cleveland, Brother Joe May, The Staple Singers, Thomas A Dorsey, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, The Edwin Hawkins Singers, Andrea Crouch and many more. This is an excellent film for church groups and choir members in particular for sure. The films director Don McGlynn is a veteran maker of some thirty music documentaries so when asked how did he come up with so much historical footage of the artists in the film he chuckles with delight, There is always somebody who is crazy about the topic that youre singing to make a film about. Sometimes I make films because there is no film. This is the exact opposite. There was plenty of film. My partner on this particular project owns a company that is pretty much all music clips. He kept saying to me for about three years, I have all of this great gospel footage. I had actually seen some of it because Im a fan to. Then I said yeah this might work but where are we going to find the money and then we did.Ž Magnolia Pictures eventually picked the project up then McGlynn and crew set out to meet and interviews the people who made the music or had the history about it. This included going to Black churches for service and musicals and talking to the old and new school gospel artists. A couple of the highlights in doing this project for McGlynn were the personal interaction with the people involved. He describes is experience by saying, When I went to church I really liked it. I thought it was a lot more interactive. The people next to you were talking to each other and all of this fellowship was going on. It was life confirming for me but also meeting all of these people. They were so generous and helpful. I mean Mavis Staples couldnt have been nicer. We were talking about how Howlin Wolf taught her father Pops Staples how to play the guitar while they were both on a plantation called Dockery Farms in rural Mississippi.Ž McGlynn was also delighted that everyone involved really enjoyed this movie. He said, Everybody was like thats really nice youre making this movie because it hasnt been done. We had stitched together as much of the history as we could find so it was very rewarding to have the audience respond so well.Ž PAGE B-3 THE STAR JULY 9, 2011ENTERTAINMENT ReJoice And Shout!A Jubilent History of Black Gospel!By Rych McCain, rychmccAin@sbcglobal.net and Facebook Photos Courtesy of Magnolia Films Sister Rosetta Tharpe Clara Ward Mahalia Jackson Josetta Arnold Harrel & Joann Baggs Clarethea D.

PAGE B-4 THE STAR JULY 9, 2011 URQTVU RCIG"D6""E"O"["M Ctvkeng"Ytkvvgp"D{<"Gtke"NggWe live in a sex driven culture. Companies use sexy models to sell everything from cars to computers and everything in between. Rap music would probably go out of business if the artists had to remove all of the sexually explicit or suggestive lyrics out of the songs that are played over the airways. Designers would have a harder time selling their clothing lines if there werent sexy models wearing the designs while walking confidently, yet provocatively down the runway in front of the buyers for our mainstream stores. Television shows would have to become more creative in their writing to lure in and retain viewers if the rigid censorship restraints of 40 years ago were still in place today. Lets face it... Sex Sells! Sex sells so well that if it ceased to be the focal point of most marketing plans, the country would probably slip back into a depression as businesses feel the crunch caused by disinterested consumers holding on to their cash and thereby slowing the flow of currency. Yet, in the midst of this pleasure seeking society, there are still a few who stand on some pretty old fashion values. Values like abstinence until marriage. What! No Sex until I say I do! Are you serious? You must be out of your mind; or in todays text-terminology, WTF? I know it sounds crazy, and if I can be honest, it sounds crazy to me. As a person who got into the game early and often from an early age, and carried that confused consciousness into adulthood, it sounds crazy to me. Even as a person who has suffered great loss both personally and professionally, it sounds crazy to me. Even as a professor of the faith and as one who has come to know better, it still sounds crazy because conformity to the sex-culture is cool even though the cost associated with continuing therein is often so awfully high. Meet Shanette Howard; Jacksonville Jaguars Cheerleader, former Miss Florida International 2006, Motivational Speaker, college graduate, television personality, and sex symbol(more on that later). I had the privilege to interview this beautiful young lady recently, and the things she had to say was so on point and powerful that we had to share some of it. When asked how she was able to accomplish so much at such a young age; she gave all of the credit and the glory to God. When asked how she was able to keep herself chaste with all of the constant pressure of todays sexually charged atmosphere; she adm itted it has been very difficult, but gave all the credit and glory to God. And when you look at her website or business card, you see a focus and a tenacious zeal to push purity as a lifestyle for our youth, because her belief is that if she had allowed herself to get caught up and compromise her character by conforming to the sex culture, the ensuing crisis may have prevented her from realizing her purpose When asked about her purpose, she quickly asserted that her passion and purpose is to empower our youth and help slow the decli ne of moral decay that is continuing to corrupt our society. Shanette cited a belief that a lack of self worth is at the center of the promiscuous practices our young people today. The fa ct that there arent enough role models speaking out on the negative effects of having sex too early and the positive effects of waiting. Waiting... now theres a moral concept. Did I mention the Shanette was a spokesperson for Great to WaitŽan organization that promotes abstinence until marriage? I didnt. Its hard to keep up with all of the personal accomplishments of this young lady. Its also important to note that Shanette is a worshiper. It didnt take long to figure that out during the interview, due to the fact that she was quick to give God the credit for everything she has done. On her Facebook page, Shanette asserts that she is not religious, but she does have a relationship with God! What! Not religious? Then it hit me... Having a relationship with God based on true communion and not just religious rhetoric is at the very core of Shanettes success story. One irrefutable fact about our culture is that we are a very religious people, but how many of us can truly assert a real relationship with God? But in this person, the relationship is obvious, not that shes perfect... not at all. But she is aware of Gods word and will for her life; as well as where she is in relationship to it. Lastly when asked about her goals for the forseeable future, there were a number of things Shanette would like to do. Things like; having her own television talk show and maybe becoming the next Oprah. But the two things she spoke the most passionately about was completeing her Masters degree in counselling to go along with her Bachelors degree in business, and opening up her own community center for the performing arts so that kids in at risk areas would have a safe place to go and study the arts as well as learn life skills. I for one, hope shes able to accomplish all she has set out to do.

JULY 9, 2011THE STARPR 2 PREP RAP PREP RAP NO TIME TO SPARE -STRIKE NOW TO SAVE THE RHINOS!JULY 22, 2011 Jacksonville, FL --The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) is holding its 21st annual Bowling for Rhinos on Friday, July 22, 2011 at Batt Family Fun Center on 1838 Cassat Avenue at 7:00 p.m. Registration begins at 6:00 p.m. A $15 registration fee includes three games of bowling, and shoe rental. Those interested in participating should visit jacksonvillezoo.org to pre-register. Bowling for Rhinos is a conservation event aimed at protecting rhinos and their habitatsŽ, said Yaira Osborne, secretary of the Jacksonville Chapter of AAZK. Its a great way for the community to come together, embrace wildlife, by supporting such a worthy cause.Ž Only five species of rhinoceros exist today, two African species and three Asian species. Poaching is the main threat to rhinos, and the need for protection is greater than ever. Sumatran rhino numbers are less than 300 animals, and fewer than 50 Javan rhinos are left on the planet. By participating in Bowling for Rhinos, participants can help save them from extinction. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event go directly to three rhino sanctuaries located in Africa and Indonesia. The money raised is then used for fencing of the sanctuaries, rangers to keep poachers away, a plane for patrol and a truck to transport animals to the sanctuaries. In addition to saving rhinos, we are helping save everything from orchids to elephants in some of the most unique habitats in the world! The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Chapter of AAZK has been an active participant in Bowling for Rhinos since 1990 and has raised over $60,000 for this event,Ž said Brian Eisele, Bowling for Rhinos Co-Chairperson. For more information, go to jacksonvillezoo.org.Minorities; Social Networking and Marketing By William Jackson, M.Ed. Social Networking/Marketing is booming for minority small businesses and minority entrepreneurialism is on the rise because of the integration of technology. Blogging content is important in business and market planning to establish credibility and a presence online. Technology, an ever developing tool, important for business contacts, building business relationships, creating collaborations, expands the reach of business cards, email addresses, and cell numbers. Minorities need to understand the time is now for business ownership to explore business options on social networks. It does not take a technology degree, or a marketing degree (learning the basics is important) its as simple as gaining a basic understanding of using networking tools to expand beyond a handshake. The misconception for business success online is: joining every social network, making thousands of friends, gaining multiple contacts, and grow an email database bigger than the next person. Even if a network of thousands is created this may not work towards business success. There needs to be a plan, a procedure, and a process to implement social networking, and social media concepts and designs. Content is very important, content is king; stated by Tiffany Duhart of Nokturnal Escape, Many business owners do not value the content of their social media sites. Businesses do not realize that all the fluff and pizzazz of Flash, Shockwave, music and incorporation of graphics goes away in the minds of potential clients, the client looks for contentŽ (www.nokturnalescape.com); Visiting Nokturnal Escape view the content, use of graphics,the use of content to drive people to the site to provide information. As I lecture and present on the importance of content for businesses and education, many business owners think they can drive customers to their sites with lots of graphics, but this does not mean anything if a client is not made. Having a web presence, social media presence or involved in LinkedIn does not mean everyone knows who you are. The goal is to have repeat visits and consistent clients. Content is what attracts potential clients and keeps their attention, the same with Blogging. There is no compromise when it comes to the importance of content.Stated by Scott F. Geld, Director of Marketing for MarketingBlaster.com, Content is the thing that attracts customers and retains their attention. It is the one and only means, which would bring customers to your website and turn leads into sales through all your advertising campaigns.Ž The social networking scene has grown billions of people in 3 years, the explosion of the diversity of what is being called the Web 2.0 environment has allowed diverse communities to connect, work in partnerships, allow for peer collaboration on projects that minorities would never have imagined only years before. The Nielsen Company, showed through studies consumers spent about five and half hours on social networking sites ranging from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. This is an 82% increase from previous years when users were spending just over three hours on social networking sites. The globalization of social networks and blogs are the most popular online category followed by online games and instant messaging. People have discovered through social networks there is no limit to what a person can participate in according to their professional curiosity and business desires. This is why when addressing business interests a plan with routines and procedures is needed. Businesses are finding that the instantaneous sharing of information about companies and products is prompting businesses to influence conversations through technology and new ways of thinking. Businesses can be victimized by social media sites and the posted content from others online.Customers have a medium (tool) to criticize a product and communicate with millions in a matter of minutes. Customer satisfaction should be number (1). Businesses are in constant cyber attacks, minority businesses particularly should take cyber hits seriously. They must be sure that employees keep their identities and access/network codes secret. The Internet and Social Networks open up doors for espionage, theft, slander, and potential criminal activities. Establishing a connection in social networking environments may allow for an entrepreneurial spirit to develop faster, but opens doors for other threats. Education and being proactive is very important. This media is ever changing and developmental; looking at Google, Microsoft, Facebook, LinkedIn, Nokturnal Escape and others; their implementation of Social Media and Social Networks has changed the rules of businesses. In the book Business at the Speed of Thought (Bill Gates 1999) Gates highlighted that in order for any business to be successful, businesses must embrace technology. In order for any business to survive there should be an incorporation of business thought, technology implementation and integration. Minority businesses must learn to implement, incorporate, collaborate and educate themselves to compete in a global digital market place.http://about.me/williamdjackson

Lewis Archway Plaza during a ceremony celebrating the schools former entryway and historic roots in St. Augustine, Florida. The event will take place July 14, 2011, 11 a.m., at the Collier-Blocker-Puryear Park in St. Augustine. A reception will follow with an opportunity to view informational kiosks chronicling the story of FMU. Florida Memorial University has a prosperous and inspiring history,Ž said Dr. Henry Lewis, III, president of the university. The vision of our former presidents led to establishing St. Augustines first college and shapes a legacy of educational excellence we still honor today. We are building upon that legacy and transforming it from good to great.Ž FMU traces its origins to 1879 and is the product of two institutional mergers combining Florida Baptist Institute in Live Oak, Florida, and Florida Baptist Academy, founded 1892 in Jacksonville, Florida. Both institutions served former slaves and their descendants, with curriculums focused on industrial education, domestic arts, teacher education, and agricultural, mechanical and religious training. In 1918, the institution relocated to St. Augustine, after which the name changed to Florida Memorial College and the school achieved accreditation. The archway, built by students in the 1930s, served as the entrance to campus until 1968 when the school moved to Miami, Florida. With the addition of graduate degree programs in education and business, the school was renamed Florida Memorial University in 2006. The dedication launches the schools redevelopment of the hundreds of acres surrounding the archway, which FMU still owns.

Please note that in our observations, weekly reports show that African Americans DO NOT commit the largest percentage of criminal offenses in this area. Man Behind Kalil McCoys Death Turns Self InPolice have been looking for the people responsible for the death of 19-year-old, Kalil McCoy, after she disappeared and was found dead in the woods. Frederick Wade, 19, who graduated from the same high school as Kalil, was arrested and charged with manslaughter was interviewed. Wade described the whole incident as an accident. He said Kalil was in the front seat of the Chevrolet Tahoe that he was driving that night and they started to argue. Then both started to fight over a handgun. Wade said that when he stopped at a red light, the gun went off and shot her in the head. Wade and the three others that were in the car dumped her body in the woods. Lynnette Roebuck, the mother of the victim, said that Wade came to the family on the night her daughters body was found. She said he tried to comfort Adil McCoy, Kalils twin brother. The arrest caught everybody by surprise and Roebuck did not believe this to be an accident at all. "If it was an accident, then why dump her body like trash," she said. Wade turned himself in and also turned in the gun that killed Kalil. Police are continuing the investigation on the three other suspects involved in the murder. Frederick Lee Wade Kalil McCoy Man Tries to Avoid Death Penalty for Life Sentence After Killing Co-WorkerThomas Theo Brown, 29 was facing a death penalty for killing his coworker at a Wendys in Jacksonville. Brown tried to avoid execution by trying to plea guilty before the trial so that he would be sentenced to life instead. Brown was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after shooting and killing Juanese Miller, 22. Prosecutors say Brown killed Miller for sending him home early. He came back to the restaurant still wearing his uniform and name tag and fired three shots into Millers back. He then said I told you Id kill you, before firing off another in her head. Brown and Miller were said to already have problems with each other at work. Brown was fired before, after an argument and Miller had muttered a racial slur at him after dumping ice down his back. Defense attorneys described Brown as a disturbed man ever since young. He was said to have developed multiple personalities and even stabbed his sister at age 5. Regarding Millers death, he is said to have probably snapped causing him to retaliate in way killing his co-worker. The jury voted 7-5 in Browns execution, but the judge will have the final say as the case is still being reviewed. Thomas Theo BrownMan Gets Life For Killing Chief Petty Officer in Front of his Girlfriend and DaughterDeangelo Thomas, 31, previously faced a death sentence for murdering Navy chief petty officer, David N. Gilbert, 40, in the presence of his girlfriend and daughter. The case underwent much debate on the decision of Thomas sentence, but prosecutors argued that Brown should be executed for the serious crimes he had already committed in the past. Thomas was in search of a drug dealer he was planning to rob, but he mistakenly broke into Gilberts apartment, where Gilbert was with his girlfriend and 3-year-old daughter. Thomas ended up shooting Gilbert multiple times, killing him. Thomas was arrested on charges of first-degree murder, burglary, and a felon in possession of a firearm. The case was originally assigned to Circuit Judge Jeff Morrow, but had to be turned over to Senior Circuit Judge Michael Weatherby, due to Morrows unexpected death. A rare decision of a split 6-6 vote was announced on the death and life sentence of Thomas. A vote of at least 75 is required for a death sentence and the vote of 6-6 was seen as unusual by the judge. Weatherby reviewed the transcript and was provided with 60 mitigating factors by Thomas defense team in favor of a life sentence. After much assessment, it was left for Weatherby to finally sentence Thomas and he chose to give Thomas life in prison. Deangelo Thomas

JULY 9, 2011 THE STAR C&J 3Bizarre Crimes Bizarre Crimeswho, what, when...huh? Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Woman Gets Caught Shipping 236 Pounds of Marijuana Using FedExLatoyal T. Williams, 34, was arrested for delivering 236 pounds of marijuana through FedEx. In November of last year, a FedEx security manager discovered a box of marijuana from Arizona that was supposed to be delivered to Williams home. Authorities were contacted and investigation began. Informants said that Williams has been receiving box after box from Arizona in the past. Williams was actually delivering the substance to herself. She flew to Arizona, where she purchased the marijuana and started to ship them to her home in Jacksonville. Detectives confirmed with FedEx that eight shipments of the substance totaling up to 236 pounds were delivered to her home since early 2010. Latoyal T. Williams Mother Thought To Be Dead for 40 Years is AliveLula Cora Hood, mother of 14 children, had left one day and never came back in 1970. Her daughter Grace Kivisto said that her mother suffered from mental problems and had left before, but always came back home. After the last time she had left, she was never seen again. Kivisto was 15 at the time when her mother went missing and was later adopted by her relatives.Nothing of her mother was ever heard from, until over two decades later in 1996, police called the family reporting that they found human remains in Galesburg, Florida, which they believed to be the body of Hood. They said that it was her. But they couldnt do DNA at the time, because it wasnt that advanced yet, said Kivisto. Assuming that she was dead, the family buried the remains and held a memorial. Two years ago in 2009, the family decided to have investigators analyze the DNA of the remains as technology had already become more than advanced. Just this month, the results showed that the body was not of Hood at all, but of another woman this whole time. Police decided to reopen the investigation and started searching for Hood on the Internet using her information such as her name and date of birth. They said that they located an 84-year-old woman in Jacksonville and believed her to be the the real Lula Cora Hood.

Lula Cora Hood Woman Held Captive as Sex Slave for 18 Years of Her LifeSince Age 11, Finally Freed and SpeaksAntioch, CAJaycee Dugard, now 31, was walking home from school one day, when she was just 11 and was kidnapped by Phillip and Nancy Garrido. Phillip was a drug addict and registered sex offender and little did Dugard know what she would go through the next 18 years of her life. She told the Garridos that her family did not have any money for ransom, but soon she learned that money was not the issue at all. Dugard was kept in the backyard where she lived in tents and was repeatedly raped by Phillip for many years. Police had visited the Garridos home up to 60 times, but never checked the backyard. Nobody knew of the horrific acts that were going on in the household. After much sexual abuse, Dugard had given birth to two daughters and later all three of them were taken into the Garridos home. None of them ever were given the opportunity to see a doctor or attend school and Phillip did not harm the babies as Dugard guarded them with her life. She said she did think about running away, but she said she was scared of Phillip and would not know what to do when she got out. When Phillip was not home, his wife Nancy handcuffed Dugard so that she would not escape. Eventually the Garridos were caught and were arrested. PhillipGarrido is sentenced to 431 years in prison and Nancy Garrido is sentenced to 36 years. Dugard is finally free and is reunited with her mother. She will release a book, Stolen Life and she is said to be featured on TV shows broadcasting all over the nation to be interviewed for the first time talk about her experience.
