The Politics of Unemployment and the Attacks on the PresidentDr. John E. Warren, Publisher, CEO San Diego Voice & Viewpoint Newspaper Recent unemployment reports have given the critics of President Obama another excuse to blame him for the economic problems of the country. Those most critical of him are the Republicans, the Tea Party and every conservative American and business interest who would like to put the interest of the wealthy above the interest of all Americans. History shows us that unemployment has been no stranger to America since the Great Depression. During the Depression, President Roosevelt responded with a Public Works Administration program that put Americans to work on roads and other public projects; World War II geared up the War Machine in terms of manufacturing and production that provided jobs for all those not actively serving in the military; the G.I Bill with loans for education and home purchases coincided with the Korean War and using the War Machine for business productivity while G.I. Benefits went to those in school and not fighting in that undeclared war; the Viet Nam War once again geared up the War machine in terms of both using manpower in drafting men into service and producing all the items needed for a war. With the end of the Viet Nam war, once again, America was faced with high unemployment. This time America responded with the Manpower Development and Training Act providing job training along with veteran benefits to unemployed former soldiers and training for those individuals with low job skills. These efforts coincided with the Great Society that President Lyndon B. Johnson picked up after the death of President John Kennedy. The great society brought a number of programs and services to help the unemployed and the under employment and funded the creation of community nonprofit organizations which also provided jobs. Manpower Development and Training Act was replaced by the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act known as CETA. One of its strongest points was its Public Service Employment provisions under Title II that provided jobs for Police, Firemen and Teachers at a time when cities were having great financial difficulties in the 1970s. It was also during the mid 1970s that Congress passed the Humphrey/Hawkins Full Employment Act establishing triggers for the implementation of unemployment insurance benefits to areas reaching a 6.5 percent unemployment rate in pockets of single member statistical Areas (SMSA) using census data. During periods of high unemployment, benefits were extended to help the chronically unemployed. President Obama engaged in the extension of such benefits last December when the republicans held the measure hostage until they got tax benefits extended for the wealthy. The point of all of this is that President Obama is not responsible for this period of high une mployment which will get even worse if the Debt Ceiling is not extended in the weeks ahead. The Republican leadership in the House of Representative want the cutting of entitlement programs which include Social Security, Medicare and aid to children and the elderly; It must be remembered that the legislative powers of the nation rest with the U.S. Congress under Article I of the U.S. Constitution. The President does not make laws, he signs them. Finally let us remember that U.S. Businesses are sitting on over One Trillion dollars in cash with which they could hire layoff or unemployed workers and boost the economy. But business, like to republicans who represent their interest have decided that President Obama with his concern for all Americans, is a threat to the tax credits, subsidies and tax breaks that benefit the oil companies, Drug Companies and insurance companies that must change how they do business because of the Affordable Health Care Act and regulatory changes this President has implemented President Obama, hold your ground on entitlements, health care and the domestic programs you have support to benefit all Americans. Americans, regardless of your color or ethnic identity, if you are not wealthy, you are already a victim of the attacks on President Obama.PAGE A-2 THESTAR JULY 23, 2011 Founded In April 1951 By Eric O.

When adults dont know which direction they are headed in life, one can say its a shame but when a twelve year old child knows what her path in life is all about and actually has it mapped out, that can be labeled as amazing!Ž In her native St. Louis, Mo., Young Leeah D. Jackson tagged along with her brother to an audition he was called to. She was only three at the time but after seeing the other children read for several parts (not being shy), she asked the people holding the audition if she could try out. Her mom said it was OK. She auditioned and booked the part on the spot. Her agency said that was the fastest that any of its new clients had been book for a job. Fast forward nine years later, Jackson is still booking them. The family relocated to Los Angeles several years ago where Jackson and her older brother continued to do commercials, TV and Film work. Jackson has appeared in commercials such as General Motors,ŽŽ McDonaldsŽ and TV shows including HBO Jam,Ž The ShieldŽ and Boston PublicŽ to name some. She was in Willow Smiths Whip My HairŽ video and was one of Maurys Most Talented Kids.Ž She has been a reporter on the red carpet for various events and premieres and served as an on-air radio hostess. Jackson sang happy birthday to the King of Pop Michael Jackson at his 40th B-Day bash on his Neverland Ranch. She has a role in Robert Townsends movie The HiveŽ and recently hosted the second Annual Girl Power ExpoŽ and will host the upcoming Hip-Hop AwardsŽ in Las Vegas. Since Jackson has literally grown up in the biz on sound stages, does she feel like she has had a normal life? She says, Yes I do have a normal life as well. Ive been doing this since I was three. I love it. Its cool.Ž Does her friends expect her to be HollywoodŽ just because she is a singer/dancer/actress? Jackson is emphatic, No they dont.Ž She continues, I have friends in normal life and friends in the acting world but its normal.Ž How is she schooled? Jackson explains, I have an online teacher with all of the materials and everything else. Its really cool. My favorite subject is math. Im actually in 8th grade math and Im only in the 7th grade.Ž Jackson has worked with a lot of directors. Is there anything that she does to prepare to work with them? Her answer is to the point, I just focus.Ž Is she satisfied with the direction her career has taken so far? Jackson quips, I love it.Ž When she has time off she loves to visit home (St. Louis) and New York. If she were an animal, which one would she be? Of course she selected the toughest one in the entire animal kingdom … the African bull elephant. She says, Thats because Im tough too!Ž In terms of her future, Jackson plans to stay in show business but she also wants to study medicine and become a doctor. She follows that up saying When it comes to the medical shows like Grays Anatomy,Ž I want to be a counselor to the actors telling them how to actually play a doctor.Ž PAGE A-6 THE STAR JULY 23, 2011ENTERTAINMENT Leeah D Jackson, A lot Of Ground Covered; More To Go!By Rych McCain, feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net and Facebook Photo Courtesy of TTJ Entmt Birthday: Happy B-Day wishes go out to actress Paige Hurd (Beauty Shop, Everybody Hates Chris), who celebrated 19 years on July 20, 2011.

Rych Rych McCains Hollyhood NotesBy Rych McCain, feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net and Facebook 29th RMHN Are Men More Romantic Than Women?(SPM Wire) Who's more likely to spend time waiting for a phone call from that special someone or planning for marriage and kids? Men or women? These days the answer might surprise you. Men are quicker to fall in love and more likely to want children, according to a new study. Indeed, 54 percent of men now say they have experienced love at first sight, versus 44 percent of women. Among singles without children, more men (24 percent) than women (15 percent) say they want children. These surprising responses recently came to light as part of the largest ever national study of single men and women, which was funded by Match.com, the dating website.THE TOM JOYNER FOUNDATION SELECTS FLORIDA MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY AS THE JULY 2011 HBCU OF THE MONTH Florida Memorial University (FMU), South Floridas only historically black college or university (HBCU), received national recognition when the Tom Joyner Foundation (TJF) selected it as the July 2011 HBCU of the Month. Aimed specifically at helping HBCUs, the TJF provides financial support for students to complete their college education. Through July 31, FMU will collect funding from across the United States supporting scholarships for high-achieving students at the school. The foundation is really happy to work with Florida Memorial University,Ž said Tom Joyner, nationally-syndicated radio host and the foundations chairman. The university has a wonderful history and this foundation is all about making sure students are able to stay in school.Ž Established in 1998, the Tom Joyner Foundations mission is to support HBCUs and help students continue their education. Each month, it designates an HBCU to receive its support. The scholarships will be awarded to students through the Office of Financial Aid at FMU based on financial need and other requirements. I grew up believing there was nothing I could not achieve,Ž added Joyner. My grandparents, my brother, my sons and I are all graduates of HBCUs. Kids need to know that HBCUs are not merely options; they are answers.Ž Throughout the month, people interested in financially supporting FMU can visit the foundations page on www.blackamericaweb.com to donate online.

JULY 23, 2011 THE STAR PAGE A-7 DTQYP"/"eqpvkpwgf"htqo"C/3Etcem"/"Eqpvkpwgf"htqo"C/3The decision by the U.S. Sentencing Commission applies to approximately one in 17 inmates in the federal prison system. Congress last year substantially lowered the sentences for crack-related crimes such as possession and trafficking, changing a 1980s law that was criticized as racially discriminatory because it came down extra hard on a drug common in poor, black neighborhoods. The question before the commission was whether people already locked up under the old law should benefit retroactively from the changes. The six-member commission unanimously decided in their favor. I believe that the commission has no choice but to make this right,Ž said Ketanji Brown Jackson, a vice chairwoman of the commission. I say justice demands this result.Ž The NAACP was among the groups praising the commission's action. About 85 percent of the inmates expected to benefit from the decision are black. This is just another step in us righting a wrong, fixing failed criminal justice policy,Ž said Robert Rooks, national criminal justice director for the NAACP. The commission's action is final unless Congress decides by the end of October to intervene and that is considered unlikely. Prisoners will have to petition a judge for a sentence reduction and requests will be decided on a case-by-case basis, with the court taking into consideration the defendant's behavior in prison and danger to society. Prosecutors will be allowed to weigh in. The earliest anyone could get out is November. that the budget will be approved. This budget reduces the nearly 60 million dollar deficit for the 2011 fiscal year and is 26 million dollars less than the 2010 budget. Mayor Brown began trimming the budget by first reducing his salary by 20 percent. Salaries in most other departments have been reduced by 2 percent. Budgets in all city departments were trimmed and 225 jobs were eliminated mostly through attrition. Trimming of the budget is due to a decrease in property taxes. The 2011 streamlined budget eliminated 50 mayoral appointments and added four new offices he describes as leanly reducedŽ with focuses on education, different aspects of economic development including downtown, sports and entertainment and public-private partnerships. Staffers leading these posts are on loan and leave from institutions and corporations in the private sector. To advance his goals towards Jacksonville becoming the Dream City of its potential, the mayor has introduced four staffed positions to strengthen his governance for a more wholesome community.EducationAs a product of the Duval County Schools and an alumnus of Jacksonville University, Mayor Brown strongly believes in our education system at all levels and is committed to providing needed support of the city to ensure that a quality education is achievable for all children. For the first time in our history an Education Commission has been established. The mayor has appointed Donald Horner, Education Commissioner. Horner who will continue in his position as director of the Davis Leadership Center at Jacksonville University, technically will be paid $1.00 per year by the city as the point person to work with private industry on getting funding for public schools. The mayors number one priority is to have programs where students can learn to earn while working and paying their way through college. Mayor Brown believes that the use of retired teachers as student tutors, particularly in the area of math and science would be beneficial. In discussing our port the mayor also noted an ongoing technical curriculum programs at A. Philip Randolph Skills Center, First Coast High School and the Florida State College of Jacksonville that are preparing students for jobs at our ports and terminals where entry level positions average an annual salary of $44,000.Sports and EducationHand in hand with a strong education program sports and the arts are vital components, said the mayor. The Sports and Entertainment Commission will seek to attract more professional sports to our city. Such a commission would boost the redevelopment of our once thriving downtown while increasing tourism and adding a variety of small businesses. Mayor Brown stated, We have an NFL team and Jacksonville can be the sports metropolis as the gateway to Florida by bringing NBA as well as the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) to our sports complex.ŽDowntown Community Empowerment Corp.The mayor created the Downtown Community Empowerment Corp. to make Jacksonville a destination city rather than a pass through corridor to other locations along I-10 and I-95. The mayor is looking forward to increasing the number of ocean and river cruise liners that dock at Jax Port and the North Bank of the St. Johns River. Because conventions and tourism is Floridas most important industry, generating over 60 billion dollars in revenues and accounting for 20% of taxes revenues; the Mayor was commended for focusing on the, much needed, redevelopment of downtown and, making Jacksonville a destination rather than a pass through. Redevelopment of downtown will also help Jacksonville to compete with Miami, Orlando and Tampa for tourism and convention business. Brown supports Visit Jacksonville and a state of the arts convention center. Mayor Brown reiterated his plans for creating a downtown development authority to be headed by Jerry Mallot,who presently heads the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerces economic development and Don Shea, executive director of the Jacksonville Civic Council. Both executives will be on loan from their organizations. Brown has spoken with many of the downtown stakeholders and believes that they support downtown development. Brown wants to make downtown attractive for businesses to relocated to Jacksonville and for people to live downtown. The mayor visions that we can build a transportation system equipped for the 21st century. His dream is that one day Jacksonville like New York City and Washington, D.C. will be a city where public transportation will connect people all over the city and people wont be as dependent on their cars. Mayor Browns dream is to market the St. Johns River where it spews into the Atlantic Ocean and at its curvaceous corridors along the north and south banks. Like the downtown churches, Mayor Brown sees private industry building theatres, restaurants and retail stores making Jacksonville a destination stop.POLICE AND COMMUNITY RELATIONSJacksonville is a tale of two cities when it comes to the different perception of the police by the Black and White communities. It is the belief of some Blacks that the police are occupiers and profilers in the Black community whereas some Whites believe that the police are there to protect and serve the community. Mayor Brown was asked to comment on the Jacksonville Community Council, Incs 2004 Race Relations Progress Report that indicated that 88% of Blacks and 39% of Whites did not believe that Blacks would be treated fairly by the police. And in the 2008 report, the statistics remained the same for Black at 88% and increased for Whites at 55%. This negative perception of police fairness is being reviewed by the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission. Mayor Brown believes in community policing and encourage citizens and organizations like the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission to continue working with Sheriff Rutherford and participate in community policing to reduce and eliminate the distrust of the police by the majority of our citizens. Brown did not appear to be too familiar with State Attorney Angela Coreys substantial increase in direct filing of juveniles as adults. The NAACP sent a letter to Congresswomen Corrine Brown last year complaining about the direct filing of juveniles and the harsh sentencing by some Jacksonville judges. By working with a Public and Private Partnership, Mayor Brown believes that Jacksonville will become a Dream CityŽ for all. INVITES YOU AND A GUEST TO A SPECIAL ADVANCE SCREENING!

By: Ask Deanna! All families have secrets but no one wants to talk about the pink elephant that is always in the room. Other than a female that has babies by several different fathers, drug use is a loud whisper that family members wish they could sweep under a rug. Drug abuse is an addiction that latches onto a persons mind, body and soul and completely takes over. The father, mother, brother sister, cousin or aunt not only have a drug use problem, but subject the entire crew to theft, abuse, pain and suffering. Other than ridicule, shame and ignoring, how do you deal with this? The first step is acknowledgement and removal of denial. Realize that your loved one has a drug use problem and whether you like it or not, theyre a pothead, a crack head, alcoholic, cocaine user, or plain and simple, theyre a junkie. After numerous thefts, personal items taken to the pawn shop or ridiculous loans and requests for money the problem cant be ignored. Your loved one is on drugs and you need to come to grips with this truth in recognizing the addiction. Once youre over the embarrassment, pain and humiliation its easier to proceed with help, therapy or a solution. Upon being able to recognize the addiction without getting emotional and taking it personal, its best to immediately proceed with a solution. Most families waste time before getting to this step because too much time is spent trying to blame someone or something. In other words, they try to find a reason and go through the why meŽ, why my childŽ or why usŽ drama not to mention beginning to worry about what others will think if the secret gets out. Drug addiction is rarely treated successfully with a cold turkey I can stop anytime I want to approach.Ž Clinical assistance, therapy, detoxification and a lot of family support is needed. There are many toll free numbers to call in the yellow pages, several low cost treatment centers and websites or even churches that can be the first step to treatment and recovery. If the family member isnt strong enough to make the call to a treatment facility or resource on their own, come together as a unit and work together. It takes a village to raise a child so why not use the same village to save an adult. So you ask yourself, weve acknowledged the problem, recognized the addiction and found a treat-ment center, now what? The next step is getting ready for a long ride that will be filled with ups and downs and many tumbles off the wagon. Drug addiction can begin with one puff or one snort but it can take a lifetime to heal and recover. The treatment process and getting things under control will be rough, there will be slips with more drug use, threats of suicide and a lot of emotions, crying and assump-tions of never ending uphill battles. You, your family and the victim of drug addiction can tackle this problem together if you remain steadfast and committed, no judgmental tendencies and a lot of prayer as you cooperate with the treatment facility and follow any plans they outline. Drug addiction is not the end of the road for your loved one and the rainbow will reappear in your family. Embrace the situation with love, support and faith and you will overcome and be victorious. When a Loved One Has An AddictionPAGE B 2THE STAR JULY 23, 2011 By: Andi K. Consulting, Inc. Personal Appearance Regardless of what people say, the image that you project to the world is the most important and lasting impression of you. Taking care of your personal appearance doesnt have to be expensive or difficult. I use the ABC method: Always. Be. Classy. If you have doubts about whether or not your image is classy, have a friend or relative take photos of you, and sit and review them. Ask yourself, what message does this look send? What can I do to improve it? What tools do I need to make this part of my lifestyle? Once you have the knowledge of what you have to work with, you will have the power to improve it! Attitude Are you insecure? Do you find yourself feeling jealous and/or envious of other peoples successes? Are you intimidated by confident people? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone! Changing our attitudes can have a HUGE impact on our personal progress as well as relationships with others. Begin to improve your attitude by eliminating negative thoughts. If you find it hard to do so, keep a journal about what you are feeling and use it to make some decisions about reprogramming your thoughts. Love Yourself Loving ourselves is an integral part of loving others. In fact, I would argue that if you cannot love yourself, you can never truly experience real love from another human being. The key to loving ourselves is in treating ourselves with love and respect, and requiring that of the people in our lives. Loving yourself is eliminating negative self-talk and replacing it with positive affirmation. Its about looking in the mirror and appreciating exactly what is there. Begin to love yourself today, in this moment! Hug yourself, say a kind word to yourself, and never settle. Have Gratitude Simply put, gratitude is having an attitude of grace. Grace comes from the realization that each of us is blessed beyond measure, and that there are others who are not nearly as fortunate. Gratitude comes from a place of appreciating where weve been, and having the courage to move boldly toward where we are going. Cultivate gratitude in your life today by saying thank you, for the gift that is your life. Be Confident Confidence is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the world. Many are completely unaware of how to distinguish between confidence and arrogance; while others have no clue what it is or how to get it. Confidence is having an authentic belief in yourself and your abilities to succeed against all odds. Confidence is not listening to the hurtful, ugly, negative things that the media, naysayers, or even our inner voice of doubt. Confidence is being comfortable with other peoples beauty, talent, and success. Confidence is realizing that there is enough sunshine for each of us, and that life is not about competing with others; its about competing with ourselves. Go confidently forward knowing that you are exactly who you should be: fearfully and wonderfully made. CEO & Life Coach Andi K.

PAGE B-4 THE STAR JULY 23, 2011 URQTVU Will Muschamp understands he didn't take over the typical college football program. The 39-year-old first-time head coach grabbed one of the sport's plum jobs when he was hired to lead Florida. Though the Gators finished with a 8-5 record last season, they won two out of the past six national championships under Urban Meyer, and still have plenty of talent on the roster. Muschamp didn't shy away from the expectations of the job at SEC Media Days on Wednesday, saying "I don't think anybody's feeling sorry for the Gators." The former defensive coordinator praised Meyer, saying several parts of the program have stayed the same. But he brings his own philosophy. He's tweaking the defense and special teams while Charlie Weis takes over the offense. One thing that remains constant with the new head Gator is energy. Observing him during the SEC media day interview session leaves the casual observer with one of two thoughts; either coach Muschamp is passionate about Florida Gator football or he loves to hear himself talk. I would put my money on his passion. If the team plays the way their coach talks, they should play fast, tough, and with a lot of passion. Which is exactly what the coach has outlined as a vital part of his football philosophy. With training camp 3 weeks away, its safe to say that college football is back, and not a minute too soon as Gator nation looks to return to prominence. The latest news on the biggest name in golf is not a surprise. Team Tiger announced on its website Wednesday that Steve Williams will no longer be working with Woods as a caddie, ending a 12-year relationship that saw the two rack up 13 of Tiger's 14 major championships. Here is the official statement from Tiger's website: "I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it's time for a change," Woods said. "Stevie is an outstanding caddie and a friend and has been instrumental in many of my accomplishments. I wish him great success in the future." While it might be a big change, it isn't exactly surprising. Williams has been working with Adam Scott since Tiger has been injured, and the two seem to have a good chemistry together. Along with that, it seems that anything and everything that Woods can change to get him on a different path with his golf game would be a smart move, and although some suggested this back in 2009, it finally came Wednesday. Williams posted an update on his website, saying, "After 13 years of loyal service needless to say this came as a shock. Given the circumstances of the past 18 months working through Tiger's scandal, a new coach and with it a major swing change and Tiger battling through injuries I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time. I have had the opportunity to work of late for Australian Adam Scott and will now caddy for him on a permanent basis." The caddie-player relationship has always been an interesting one. If you think about it, most PGA Tour players spend more time with their caddie than they do with their family, and while there are some relationships like Phil Mickelson and Jim Mackay that look like they'll never end, players change caddies all the time (just ask any LPGA player you know). No replacement has been announced for Tiger yet, and since there is nothing else to say, we might as well remember two moments that defined the relationship between Williams and Woods. The first came at the 2006 British Open, Tiger's first major win since the passing of his father, Earl. Woods rolled in the winning putt, and collapsed in Williams' arms on the green, not letting go as he sobbed on the looper's shoulder. The second came at the 2009 Bay Hill Invitational, when Tiger's birdie putt disappeared and his return from injury was complete. They both celebrated like it was their first win, and the competitive nature of both player and athlete shined through. Most regard Williams as one of the best caddies ever, and while it looks like his relationship with Scott will continue, the waiting game will be just who is the next to carry the bag of Mr. Woods. I c v q t u U G E O g f k c F c { V k i g t Y q q f u ( U v g x g Y k n n k c o u R c t v E q o r c p { In a joint statement released from the NFL owners and the NFLPA (Players Association), there appears to be progress being made as we inch closer and closer to a resolution of the labor dispute between the embattled parties. Not many details were given, but the fact that they are able to release a joint statement after months of posturing speaks volumes. The release read as follows: The discussions this week have been constructive and progress has been made on a wide range of issues. Our legal and financial teams will continue to work through the weekend. We will continue to respect the confidentiality orders of Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan and will therefore refrain from commenting on specific issues or aspects of the negotiations.

JULY 23, 2011THE STARPR 1 PREP RAP PREP RAP Youth Section Youth Section Money Skills Every Child Should Have(StatePoint) Money matters, and money management skills are even more important -at any age. With the help of parents, friends and teachers, children can develop essential financial skills that will be an asset throughout life. Nearly half of parents believe that schools should teach their children financial literacy, according to the 2010 Intuit Town Hall Money Matters Consumer Survey. However, with cuts to education budgets across the country, teachers often lack the resources they need to impart good financial advice to young ones and many parents dont have the tools to reinforce lessons at home. Todays economic crisis underscores the need for financial education and the importance of budgeting and planning ahead -life skills that are not necessarily included in the standard American school curriculum,Ž says Aaron Forth, Vice President and General Manager for Intuit Personal Finance Group. Some basic money skills will help your child develop financial literacy and be responsible adults. Give Them Some Control If kids dont have control of money before adulthood, they learn that money will always be provided for them, and tend to then spend liberally when they do have their own money. To avoid this, give your child some control over the household budget now. If you allot $125 a month for toys and entertainment, let them have complete say in how $30 of it is spent. Theyll probably end up buying $30 worth of junk in the first week, but eventually theyll gain an understanding of whats worth buying and how to make money last longer. Have Fun with Finance Goals and games are great -for adults and kids. They bring out the competitive nature in all of us, even if were just competing against our selves. For example, the free personal finance website Mint.com has capitalized on childrens love of games by teaming up with Scholastic to create a financial literacy game called Quest for Money.Ž Children can choose from a variety of savings goals (a new bike, concert tickets, etc.) and roll the dice to see if they can make wise financial decisions that let them reach their goals. The site, located at www.mint.com/blog/education, also provides teachers with lesson plans and resources for instilling good money habits. Control Impulse Buying By controlling impulse buying, you teach your kids that patience is the key to good judgment when it comes to financial planning. Establish a 30-day wait rule for all big purchases. Or have your children make a list of items they need (preferably long before any shopping trip) and keep it in their wallets. Then let them purchase anything on that list when it goes on sale. For more tips on teaching children financial literacy, visit www.mint.com. And remember to practice what you preach! Example is the best teacher when it comes to money management. JACKSONVILLE'S NEWEST PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL FOR OVER-AGE STUDENTS IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN ON AUGUST 22, 2011 On the first day of school of the 2011 Duval County Public School schedule, Schools for the Future Academy, School #11 will officially open its doors to seventh, eighth and incoming ninth grade students who are two or more grades behind. The academy is a partnership between the school district, The Bridge of Northeast Florida, the Jacksonville Public Education Fund and the Boston-based school development company, Schools for the Future; and will be located on the campus of The Bridge of Northeast Florida, 1824 Pearl Street, Jacksonville, Florida (formerly the Beulah Beal School). The principal is Michelle Joseph. PROBLEM: There are approximately 18,000 students in Duval County Public Schools who are at least one year behind where they should be scholastically and most of these students (about 15,000) are in middle or high school. Almost 4,000 students in the latter category are two or more grades behind their fellow classmates. Sadly, this places them at the highest level of the high risk meter to become a part of the city's drop-out population. ANSWER: Schools for the Future Academy is designed to help over-aged and underachieving students get to the right grade and ultimately graduate from high school, college and become career ready. What sets this program apart from others is that it not only addresses the educational needs of over-age students, but it also provides individual/group emotional and social counseling, as well as external learning opportunities and career readiness training. Schools for the Future Academy will initially serve 100 young people who: are approximately 14-16 years of age and have been retained at least twice before enrollment. The school will grow to 240 students over the next three years. The school is currently hosting open house (at the campus) every Wednesday from 3:30p.m. to 4:30a.m. and every Saturday from I 1:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Early enrollment is strongly encouraged due to limited seats.

JULY 23, 2011THE STARPR 2 PREP RAP PREP RAP Register Now for September ACT TestRegistration is now open for the September 10, 2011 ACT achievement test. Students who wish to take the college admission and placement exam must register before August 12, 2011. The ACT is a curriculumbased achievement exam. It tests what students have actually learned in school, not their aptitude for learning. The ACT also measures what students need to know to be ready for first year credit-bearing college courses based on ACT College Readiness Standards’. Every students results can be tied directly to these consistent standards. The ACT has four sections„English, mathematics, reading and science„and takes about three hours to complete. Students who take the ACT Plus Writing complete an optional writing test that requires an additional 30 minutes. Unlike other exams, students are not penalized for guessing or answering all the questions on each test section. In fact, it is beneficial for test takers to answer all questions within the time allowed. During registration, students may select up to four universities to receive their score reports. ACT scores are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities across the United States. ACT reports scores only when requested to do so by the student. Additional score reports are available for a small fee. All students complete a detailed inventory of questions during ACT registration. Each test taker receives an ACT score report that includes a wide variety of information to assist with high school course selection, college readiness, career planning, and college admissions. The cost for the ACT test without writing is $34. When combined with the optional ACT Writing Test, the total cost is $49.50. Students who qualify may apply for a fee waiver through their high school counselor. The ACT website, www.actstudent.org, has helpful information, free sample items, and inexpensive test prep materials to help students prepare for the exam. However, the best preparation is to take rigorous core courses in school, study hard, and learn the academic skills needed for college. Most students register online at www.actstudent.org. Students may also pick up registration forms from their high school counseling offices. Late registration is available until August 26, 2011 for an extra $21 fee. Headed to College? Huntington Learning Center of Jacksonville offers parents and students three-month college entrance exam preparation checklist Most parents know that the SAT and/or ACT are a vital part of the college application process, but somehow, the preparation for such exams tends to overwhelm-and sneak up on-parents and their teens. "A student's academic record is the most important component of his or her college application, and the SAT and ACT are key parts of that record," said Edgar Gonzalez, director of Huntington Learning Center of Jacksonville. "Entrance exams allow students to demonstrate their knowledge and are an accurate predictor of one's academic success at college. When gearing up to prepare for the SAT and/or ACT, teens should develop a study timeline and a careful study strategy so they can present their best self to their target colleges." What should that timeline and strategy look like? Gonzalez offers a month-by-month checklist for exam preparation: Month one: Get familiar with the exam(s) by taking an initial evaluation test (offered at Huntington). Choose which exam to take based on the results of the evaluation (and the preference of the target college). Identify strong and weak areas and develop a targeted plan to improve weak areas and bolster strong ones. Work with a tutor to develop the best test prep schedule based on the student's school schedule, time until college enrollment and any other relevant factors. Divide study schedule into exam (math, for example) sections and sub-sections (algebra, geometry, etc.). Depending on the outcome of the initial evaluation test, some sections may require more time and attention than others. Begin practicing different problem types (multiple choice, student-produced response questions, improving sentence questions, etc.) Study a few days a week based on customized prep schedule. Month two: Delve more deeply into the different exam sections, targeting weaker areas. Practice time management by understanding the structure of the exam(s), learning to quickly recognize incorrect answers and by improving speed. Gain an understanding of how the tests are scored, which will impact a student's test-taking strategies regarding leaving answers blank and pacing oneself. Take at least two full-length, timed practice tests-one at the beginning of the month, one toward the end of the month. Register for the exam(s). For both the ACT and the SAT, registration deadlines are approximately four weeks before test dates. Study a few days a week based on customized prep schedule. Month three: Focus on weaker sections by taking timed simulation exams on those specific sections. Improve on question types where the lowest practice scores are received. For example, if a student struggles most with sentence completion questions, but does well on the passagebased reading area (which contains 48 of the section's 67 questions), minimize study time spent on the latter. Continue to focus on improving speed on the exam. Study each day and take one fulllength, timed exam every week. Night before/day of the exam: Pack a bag with everything needed for the exam: o Admission ticket (which can be printed from the MySAT website or ACT student web account). o Two No. 2 pencils and an eraser. o A current, valid photo identification such as a state-issued driver's license, a school identification card or a passport. o An acceptable calculator (see the College Board or ACT website for the calculator policy). o A drink and snack. Look up the address of the testing center and map out the driving route. Get a good night of sleep. Leave for the exam with plenty of time to avoid unexpected delays. The most important thing to remember when getting ready for the SAT or ACT is that there is no onesize-fits-all study strategy. "Huntington Learning Center of Jacksonville has had great success with our exam preparation services because we customize programs for each individual," said Gonzalez. "No matter how a student chooses to prepare, he or she should keep in mind that there is no quick or easy way to ace these tests. Students should aim to identify and improve their weaker areas and learn as much as they can about the tests beforehand. Those two things alone will help them raise their scores dramatically."

JULY 23, 2011THE STARPR 4 PREP RAP PREP RAPNew Tips For Finding A Job (StatePoint) Whether you are looking to switch jobs or are out of work, it can now take longer than ever to find a new job. And its not just the economy thats to blame. The rules have changed when it comes to finding jobs,Ž says William Holland, author of the new book Cracking the New Job Market.Ž Globalization and technological advances have permanently transformed the job market. Its not about your credentials, but rather the value you offer a company.Ž Recruiter Tony Beshara agrees. A rsum is not a simple list of your credentials, devoid of context,Ž says Beshara, author of the new guide, Unbeatable Rsums.Ž Its a sales tool that lets the hiring authority know you can perform the duties needed immediately.Ž To help job seekers, Holland and Beshara offer the following advice: € Be open to all opportunities. In decades past, job seekers were told that networking was critical to finding the right job, as if there was a hidden job market only others knew about. That may have been true when companies hired family members and friends of employees, but in todays competitive market, companies are focused on hiring the person who can best do the job with minimal training. So dont shy away from applying to postings on job boards or company websites. But continue to reach out to friends and family, or even connections through social networking sites like LinkedIn. Just know that the most important thing is that you match a companys desired attributes. € Tailor your rsum. The average rsum gets read in ten seconds. With that kind of attention span, you better make sure your rsum stands out. This doesnt mean using distracting formats or flourishes. Make sure your rsum reflects the responsibilities of the job in language the screener (often not an expert in your field) can understand. € Ace the interview. You need to demonstrate the value you can bring to a company through the interview process. Before interviewing, prepare by making a chart listing the jobs responsibilities and your matching experience. But remember, the key to achieving maximum performance is to enter any testing situation with an uncluttered mind. € Plan for the future. The average white collar worker holds a job for two and a half to three years, according to Beshara. Therefore, its wise to plan for future job searches after getting your next job. This means planning for a future period of unemployment by saving for an emergency fund and living within your means so you dont accrue debt, says Holland. It also means keeping in touch with your network and updating your rsum as you log accomplishments, adds Beshara. More tips on finding a job in todays economy can be found in the new books Unbeatable ResumesŽ and Cracking the New Job Market.Ž Keeping Kids Busy This Summer(StatePoint) Summer is a welcome respite from the hectic days of the school year. Yet no matter how peaceful the long, lazy days of summer can be, parents and teachers know that all play and no learning can make the transition back to school extremely difficult for children. According to the National Campaign for Summer Learning, most students lose more than two months of math skills over the summer. But a break from the academic rigors of the school year doesnt have to mean a learning loss come fall. Parents can take simple steps to encourage their childs learning throughout the summer months. This can be a simple as turning classic summer activities such as learning to swim, outdoor picnics, and family trips to museums into teachable moments. Another option is to enroll children in educational summer camps. When teachers test childrens abilities after summer break, we often see the steepest decline in skills like reading and math,Ž said Megan Riede, senior director of education programs for KinderCare Learning Centers. Fun and engaging summer activities that encourage learning not only help combat summer learning loss, but can positively affect childrens motivation, selfesteem, and confidence.Ž A vast majority of preschool parents (69 percent) choose to send their children to day camps according to the second annual national Summer FunŽ survey conducted by KinderCare Learning Centers, the nations largest private provider of early childhood education. Here are some other tips parents can use to keep kids minds as sharp: € Turn a grocery store trip into a math lesson by having your child compare prices and tell you the best deal. € Change the classic road trip Are we there yet?Ž question into a challenge by giving the vehicles speed and remaining trip distance, and having your child estimate your arrival time. € Enroll your child in a program that balances interesting and educational content with group play. For example, KinderCare Learning Centers created 12 uniquely themed camps like ScienterifficŽ and Wilderness 101Ž that offer a balanced approach to learning and fun. € Make meal and snack preparation a chance to practice reading (recipes) and working with fractions (have older children double or halve a recipe). € Develop a summer reading plan with your child. Make weekly trips to the library and help your child create a list of books to read based on their interests. Parents can find more information about how to give their children a fun, educational summer at www.kindercare.com/camp. Learning doesnt have to be a solo activity. Have your child grab a friend or two and set them up for a summer of exploration. Come fall, they (and their parents and teachers) will thank you. Letting your child include their friends in their reading activities will make it seem less like school and more like fun!Being prepared will let you approach an interview with a calm mind.

Please note that in our observations, weekly reports show that African Americans DO NOT commit the largest percentage of criminal offenses in this ar ea. State Prison Guard Caught Smuggling Items into PrisonTheodis Martin, 25, was arrested after cellphones and marijuana was found on him Martin worked as a state prison corrections officer and metal detectors went off after he entered the building for work. Officer Lewis Stinson was operating the metal detector and instructed Martin to raise his pants, so he could check around his legs. After he raised his pants, Stinson found a cellphone wrapped in black tape hidden inside of Martins sock. Stinson then had the warden notified about the find and addition staff was sent to assist and conduct a complete search. More officers came, along with a K-9 unit. During the search, 3 ounces of marijuana were found hidden on Martins body and another ounce hidden in a sandwich in his lunch box. A total of three phones were found including the phone from the first search. Martin lost his job as a corrections officer that he had been employed with for about two years. He was also arrested on charges using a communications device to commit a felony, single counts of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute it, possession of more than an ounce of marijuana, bringing prohibited articles to the prison without the wardens permission, possession of prohibited items inside the guard line and trading with inmates without the consent of the warden. All charges are felonies. Theodis Martin Con Man Uses Luxury Cars to Lure Many People into Investment ScamsDonald Heflin Mitchell had been caught for luring people with his luxury cars and getting them to invest in fake financial funds. Mitchell had people fooled that he had graduated from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology and claimed that he was a broker connected to large financial institutions. He used the luxury cars he drove to his advantage into frauding people of their money. He even conned a woman out of $51,000. He was also able to con another for $10,000 while he was in jail, which was done with the help of Keith Kelley, using a three-way call set up. At least eight people were scammed out of almost $100,000. Mitchell pulled up in apartment complexes and gas stations with his Bentley to impress people and engaged in conversations. He used his fake identity claims and fake documents to convince them that the investments were authentic. He also used a law office to meet people in. The office had not been identified in the arrest report. Oddly enough, Mitchells last known location was at the law office of his former attorney, Amy Newby, who is facing trial in an unrelated forgery scheme Everything was planned out and made believable for the scams to be successful. Since 1995, Mitchell had been arrested 26 times with charges of grand larceny, auto theft, burglary, and other charges. In 2002, he served about seven years in prison for attempted bank fraud. He has been in prison since February on an unrelated charge for dodging payment of a $9,300 brake job for the Bentley at a Midas auto shop and $700 on two new tires at another place. Mitchell is being charged for his recent crime in organized schemes to defraud and is being held on a $1 million bail. Keith Kelley who helped Mitchell in the scams is being charged as well. Donald Heflin Mitchell Man Drives and Drags OfficerErnest Ross Jr. was pulled over for speeding and the police officer determined Ross had an invalid drivers license after examining it. Ross did not cooperate with the officer after being asked to turn the car off. Things started to get physical as both were struggling over the key in the ignition. Ross then put the gear into drive and started to speed off while the officer was hanging from the window. He was dragged nearly 20 feet before letting go. Ross was soon being chased by officers. The chase ended after he got out of the car and started to run. The police had lost Ross in the woods and additional assistance, including bloodhounds, were requested. He was later found at his aunts house, where he was arrested for aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, fleeing and eluding, habitual traffic offender and resisting arrest with violence.

Box 40629, Jacksonville, FL 32203 Two Others Involved in Murder of Kalil McCoy Turns Themselves InThe Jacksonville Sheriffs Office had been on the search for the suspects behind the death of Kalil McCoy until 19-year-old, FrederickWade, who also had been a friend of McCoy, turned himself in. The story that led to McCoys death, had been unveiled as told by Wade. 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. Two of other suspects, who were involved in the dumping of the body, had turned themselves in at the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. Arrests were made on Jonathan Brooks, 19, and Alfred Mears, 19. Police also say that Mears was the one that had held the gun in the car before Wade had taken possession of it. Both are being charged with accessory after the fact, a first degree felony. Jonathan Brooks Alfred Mears 41 Arrested in Drug Sweep While One Makes a Run For ItA two day drug sweep led to 41 arrests and 85 charges, ranging from ages 19 to 68. Arrests were successful, but one struggled and fought to evade authorities. Taurus Perry, a registered convicted felon, 24, had led an officer on a chase in his rental car that contained narcotics. As the chase continued, he rammed into the officers car and crashed into a power box and fence. After the several thousand dollar damage he had caused, he got out of the car and fled on foot. Perry later had his cousin notify the police that he wished to turn himself in. He was arrested with his original drug charges with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting a law enforcement officer without violence, fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement office, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and leaving the scene of an accident causing damage to unattended property. He is also being held on a $280,000 bond. Taurus Perry

Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Woman Crashes into Another Mistaking Her As Casey Anthony Chouteau, OklahomaSammay Blackwell, 26, works at a convenience store and said that at around 10 p.m. Shireen Nalley came to buy gas, but with a very suspicious look. At 10:30, Blackwell got into her car after work. As she was backing out, she noticed Nalley in her minivan staring right at her and when she pulled out of the parking lot, Nalley started to follow right behind her. Nalley then suddenly rammed into the back of Blackwells truck after a few miles of driving. Blackwell tried to avoid Nalley by pulling into a parking lot where she was hit again, which caused her vehicle to flip two and a half times. Blackwell stayed in her car and played dead. Soon Nalley was being chased by the police, where she was arrested for assault, battery with a deadly weapon, leaving the scene of a vehicle collision, resisting arrest and reckless driving. She is being held on bond for $25,000. Nalley said she thought she was Casey Anthony and was trying to save the children. The only thing that Blackwell had in common with Casey Anthony was her daughter, whose name is Caylee. Wife Tries to Shoot Puppy, But Shoots and Kills Husband Jackson, MississippiBetty and Robert Walker came from Houston, Texas to Mississippi to visit their son Robert Walker Jr. and grandchildren. An 8-month-old puppy had been roaming around outside and attacked one of the grandchildren, pulling a part of the shirt. Mr. Walker scooped up the puppy as the children were taken inside the house and his wife went to retrieve a .38-caliber revolver. Betty fired twice at the dog, but first hit her husband in the upper right chest before shooting the dog in the leg. Robert Walker Sr. was taken to the hospital, where he later died at. Betty Walker is waiting to see if she will get charged, but the owner of the dog, who is a neighbor, may face charges. Man Shot and Killed All Over A Dripping Air Conditioner Chicago, IL-Charles Sims had shot and killed a man after his sister accused him of pouring water on her head. It was actually water that was dripping from an air conditioner that hit her head as she passed by the apartment. Charles Sims approached Parker and punched him in the face after his sister told him that he poured water on her. Parker hit him back and then Slims pulled out a 9mm handgun and shot him eight times. As he fell to the ground, Sims stood over him and finished him off with a final shot. Sims had been arrested and charged with first-degree murder. People Help Detectives Catch Criminal Through Facebook The Jacksonvilles Sheriff Office had been on the search for a gunman for a kidnapping and robbing that had taken place. A surveillance picture of the suspect had been uploaded on the internet. The picture triggered conversations as there were people that recognized the suspect. Detectives were provided with a name right away. The man in the picture was identified as Travis Overton, 22. He was reported to have entered the home of Navy veteran, James Orfield, 80, through an open window with a gun at about 2 a.m. He took his credit cards and kidnapped him while his wife was asleep. Orfield was then forced to drive Overtron to twoATM machines, but no money was able to be withdrawn. The thief then decided to use a different stolen vehicle to drive to another ATMmachine, where he was able to withdraw about $500. He then stopped by a convenience store where he purchased gas and cigarettes and dropped Orfield off at his own vehicle that was first used for the kidnapping. Detectives had a surveillance photo of the suspect, which was uploaded on the JSOs Facebook page. The page has almost 11,000 members and surprisingly, the members on the page recognized or knew about the suspect. One was even aware about his recent release from prison last month. Another claimed in going to the same school and provided a name after looking into a yearbook. Overtron was arrested shortly after and charged with kidnapping and home invasion robbery. He had just been released last month after serving two years in prison for a prior burglary conviction. Man Attempts to Cut off Sons Cast with Circular Saw and Nearly Slicing Off One of His FingersAn arrest was made on a man who tried to saw a cast off his 15-year-old sons arm and nearly cutting off his fingers. Lawrence Roberts, 33, was reported to have come home at around 11 a.m. with a 10-inch circular saw, which is usually used to cut things like wood. Instead he used the dangerous tool to try to cut the cast off of his sons right hand. According to the affidavit, Roberts cut the top of his sons right thumb off and the middle of his index finger, nearly cutting it entirely off. He was also left with a cut that was 3 inches long between his thumb and index finger. Roberts son was taken to the hospital for an emergency surgery. His cast was removed and an emergency surgery had to be done on his hand. Roberts was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse, a firstdegree felony. Roberts may face up to 30 years in prison. According to police, Roberts admitted to cutting off the cast, but did not provide a reason why he did it.

Detective David Zufelt obtained arrest warrants for five of the six suspects. One of the suspects, a 12 year old, has outstanding warrants for eight counts each of burglary and theft. The sixth suspect, a 14 year old male is still being sought for questioning and faces 26 counts. Those arrested Monday were identified as Britt Webster Cubbedge, 18, 776 Medina Ave., Robert Stephen Piet Jr., 14, 6498 Genovar Isle, Forest Daniel Konen, 14, and Chandler Gaberial Konen, 12, both of 587 W. Bianca Cr. Cubbedge is charged with eight counts each of burglary and theft and is currently in the St. Johns County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $12,500. The three juveniles were each charged with five counts each of burglary and theft and were transferred to the custody of Juvenile Justice. The investigation revealed that the six suspects attempted to enter or entered over 200 vehicles on numerous streets in the St. Augustine Shores neighborhood between 12:00 and 6:00 a.m. on 02 July. All of the vehicles that were entered were unlocked and the suspects allegedly removed I-Pods, GPS units, phones, lighters, assorted change and cash. Some of the alleged stolen items have been returned to the victims and additional property is being sought from the suspect who has eluded questioning. The investigation began that Saturday morning when a Solo Ct. resident discovered a burglary to their vehicle where a knife set was removed. The set was found on the ground next to a vehicle belonging to a neighbor. The responding deputy was then dispatched to a Bianca Ct. residence following a suspicious incident report involving open gates. That led deputies to the identity of several juveniles who were located and questioned. They admitted to several burglaries to unlocked vehicles in the Shores area. Property Crimes Unit Detective, David Zufelt responded and continued the investigation.
