Can Tutoring Reduce Bullying? How Confident Students Can Triumph Over BulliesMost parents think of tutoring as a solution for a child with bad grades, but Beatrice Hair knows its about so much more than just the grades. Knowledge breeds confidence,Ž said Hair, founder of the Salisbury Tutoring Academy (www.staltd.com) and author of the book, H3LT: The Hair ThreeLegged-Table Solution for Education. If it ended with better grades and test scores, then all wed be turning out are book-smart kids who can pass a minimum skills assessment. Thats not the goal. The goal is to help a child realize their full potential both intellectually and personally. Showing them how to think for themselves in a way that fuels their ability to learn also boosts their self confidence, and when you have a child who is smart and filled with selfesteem, that child will be capable of accomplishing anything.Ž Most major problems encountered by parents, teachers and students can be solved by addressing the problems with what Hair calls the three-leggedtable,Ž she said. The child, the parent and the teacher each hold up one leg of this three-legged-table. The table is the platform for transformations to occur. Imagine a three-leggedtable with one leg broken. Will it stand, or will it wobble at the first sign of any turbulence? In our process, we approach problems by involving everyone who holds a stake in that childs development. Beatrice Hair, founder and owner of the Salisbury Tutoring Academy.PAGE A-2 THESTAR AUGUST 6, 2011 Founded In April 1951 By Eric O.

Carl Davis, Sr. Sr. Theres Always Something Happening On The First CoastŽ Theres Always Something Happening On The First CoastŽ PAGE A-4THE STARAUGUST 6, 2011(Unless otherwise specified) Thank you for sharing your events and stories for the column each week! Because of you readers are there with you each week.

As a black child in the south there were few opportunities for a full time career and she was not encouraged to pursue this dream. After all, girls were encouraged to be a teacher, nurse and maybe social work. Betty chose teaching, then social work. It took forty-six years for the opportunity to come her way. And when it did, she jumped at the chance. Betty has decided to take life a little easier and will no longer write the Socially Speaking column. However, she has agreed to do special features from time to time as she wants to continue her dream as a newspaper woman for infinity. She states: I am filled with gratitude to Florida Star Owner and Editor, Clara McLaughlin for giving me the awesome opportunity to fulfill a childhood dream. I am especially grateful to all of the readers who supported the column with their events. I will continue to See You in the PaperŽ from time to time. Betty Asque Davis A fifth generation First Coast native, Betty Asque Davis graduated from Duval Countys New Stanton Senior High School and continued her undergraduate studies at North Carolinas A. & T. University, receiving the Bachelor of Science Degree from Florida A. & M. University in Tallahassee. And while Betty began her professional career as an educator, she quickly realized that a career in social services offered her the best opportunity to impact not only the lives of children, but also of their families. For nearly thirty (30) years, she administered to the health and human service needs of Northeast Florida families, first as a front line social worker, then, ultimately as a lead social services administrator for the five-county area of Floridas First Coast. Her social services career was the springboard for Betty to become a community advocate, at the table giving voice to the concerns of the powerless in our community. Betty was among the earlier African-American Board members of the Jacksonville Community Council, Inc. (JCCI), our regions community planning council for health and human service issues. During her tenure and active participation on the board, JCCI undertook studies focused on such issues as: the need for adult day care (the study led to a coalition of adult-serving agencies and set the stage for quality standards); the teen pregnancy crisis; the need to invest in positive youth development programming (this study was the backdrop for the development of The Bridge); the Young Black Male and other seminal work. In her board service with Community Connections (formerly the YWCA), American Red Cross, Volunteer Jacksonville and as board president of Theatreworks, Betty was never a wall flower. These leading nonprofit organizations with well-defined expectations for board members all appreciated and valued Bettys service. As a member of the Mayors Commission on the Status of Women, she co-chaired the most largely attended Womens History Month Conference. She is the immediate past president of Jacksonville Womens Network, the Jacksonville communitys premier association of women leaders from both the public and private sectors. Upon her retirement, Betty was encouraged by Volunteer Jacksonville (now HandsOn Jacksonville), the communitys volunteer center, to revive its Blueprint for Leadership program (a board leadership development program). This nationally recognized program was founded by United Way of Northeast Florida and the DuPont Fund. Betty not only revamped the program but was a catalyst in creating a financial sustainability plan for the program supported by local corporations and businesses. Websters dictionary defines stewardship as the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to someones careŽ. On so many levels, Betty has been a faithful steward to the organizations she serves and to the community she deeply loves. Initiated into the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated during college, she became actively involved with the local graduate chapter upon her return home. She joined fellow members and friends in various community endeavors. In the late 1960s at the height of desegregation across the South, Betty, along with a small group of Jacksonville women established the Jacksonville Chapter of Jack & Jill of America, Incorporated to enhance the cultural enrichment of children of African American families. A Charter Member, she went on to become the chapters financial secretary, vice president, and president„helping establish many of the customs and practices the local chapter continues to utilize to this day. As member of the Jacksonville Chapter, Links, Incorporated, she has served as vice president, publicity chair and co-chair of the chapters annual Western Gala fundraising event. Betty was a co-organizer of the Jacksonville MOLES and has served as chapter president, chaplain, and bylaws committee chair. Presently she serves on the national level as the National Financial Secretary of The MOLES. Betty has been recognized as an Outstanding Catholic Woman by the Catholic Womens Club and received the Trailblazer Award from Clear Channel Communications. Its customary to think of stewardship in relation to finances, but Betty also wears the mantle of community steward as she faithfully presents her news column Socially SpeakingŽ in the Florida Star, to First Coast Citizens. At a time, when media portrayal of blacks in mainstream news outlets is so often negative and detracting, Betty attends and reports on numerous cultural and social events of positive significance to the African-American community. Her column is widely read and respected. As a Realtor at Watson Realty Corp., Betty Asque Davis has been a member of the President's Circle and a Top Sales Leader of the month in the Jacksonville Region. She has earned both the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) and Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designations. Married to her high school sweetheart James Carl Davis, Sr. since 1958, they have three adult children, seven grandchildren and one great-grandson. They are both active members of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church participating in both the Lector and Music Ministries. Betty is a well-rounded, spiritually grounded, go-getter, who sees challenges as opportunities. She has made a lifetime commitment to leaving every office or project better than she found it. Bettys love of singing, baking and reading along with her motto: "To thine own self be true" can be attributed greatly to her Girl Scout experience which began at Bethel Baptist Institutional Church at age nine (9) under the leadership of Mrs. Eugenia Brown and Mrs. Ruth Graham Ray. Mrs. Brown taught and accompanied Betty when she sang Mother Macree at a Girl Scout event. An experience she recalls with warmth and gratitude. Betty continued her Girl Scouting at St. Stephen A.M.E. Church under the leadership of the late Mrs. Jesse Elizabeth Meuse. Betty recalls that her Girl Scout experience as an emotional life saver for her as her mother was quite ill when she began her Girl Scout experience. It was those weekly meetings and camp experiences that enabled her to remain positively focused then and throughout her life. Girl Scouting has been in Bettys family for three generationsfrom her daughter at Woodlawn Presbyterian Church under the leadership of the late Mrs. Willa Cullins, her twin granddaughters at Bethel Baptist Institutional Church, as well as, granddaughters in Nebraska and Massachusetts (six (6) granddaughters altogether).

"A Rose Among Thorns" is a tribute to Rosa Parks. What is significant about this Stage Aurora performance is that it was played by Ella Joyce who is best known and beloved for her television role of "Eleanor" on TV's Black family sitcom "Roc". Joyce gave a brilliant performance that provided the audience with facts that had not been provided to many. Jacksonville theatre goers were pleased with the performance and the lessons. What was even more significant was Ms. Joyce's eagerness to pass on this information to the audience in a manner that made the very young and the older appreciate and learn about the hardships encountered in Alabama during the civil rights battle. One Caucasian in the audience stood up and praised Ms. Joyce for the information provided and stated that she was a resident in Alabama during that period and witnessed much of what was released in Joyce's performance. If "A Rose Among Thorns" is returned to the Jacksonville, don't cheat yourself, attend. Story by Farris Long of The Florida Star Photos courtesy of James Robinson The atmosphere...electrifying. The buzz of expectation...at a fever pitch. On Saturday July 30th at the Prime Osborne Convention Center, Outre Duvessa brought its hair show to the river city. The show featured the work of both local and national stylists; all displaying the many lines of hair offered by the Outre company. The crowd stood outside for hours, despite the heat, waiting to get in. Once the doors opened, the crowd poured into the room with great anticipation. Derrick J from tv's Real House Wives of Atlanta was the show's cohost along with Ms. Nickee (divadayinternational.net) the entertainment and events coordinator for Outre. Outre showed the talents of many great stylists during the event. But it was great to see their company give back to the community by giving scholarship money to students. Musical entertainment was in no short supply Saturday night either. Rising star & performing artist Britni Elise and local guy-group JONRA opened the show. Then to top off an already exhilarating evening over 3000 people were on their feet dancing, and screaming when season 3, American Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino took the stage. Outre definitely gave Jacksonville a night to remember. As Jacksonville grows under the leadership of Mayor Brown, we need more events to enhance the cultural experience of our city.

(StatePoint) More Americans today desire to be their own bosses than ever before, according to new research. Last year, 565,000 new businesses were created monthly by Americans, according to the annual Index of Entrepreneurial Activity issued by the Kauffmn Foundation. This is the highest rate in the last 15 years. And other polling found that a growing number of teenagers would prefer working for themselves rather than for traditional employers. Many experts believe that entrepreneurs and new start-up businesses will help lead the country out of the recession. "Every new business owner believes he has an idea that will change the world and make him rich in the process. But a great idea is never enough. The entrepreneur must back that idea with sound business practices and systems, strong management, and the ability to grow an idea into a company," says Jim H. Houtz, a serial entrepreneur of 40 years and author of the new book, "Grow The Entrepreneurial Dream: The Ultimate Guide To Business Success." Here are some tips from Houtz for those looking to start a new business: Develop a clear vision statement. It must be specific enough to inspire performance and guide daily action, yet general enough to adjust to changing circumstances and new opportunities. Continually evaluate the markets you're in. What will they look like five years from now? Measure your integrity level -keep checking yourself -and hold others to the same standards. When hiring look for maturity, capability and integrity. Keep your groups small. Even if your company gets big, work at keeping people in small groups. Always train your staff. Educate the people you have and don't just look to replace them. More tips on starting or growing a business can be found in Houtz's new book and online at www.allamericanentrepreneur.com. "Ironically, once you get past the challenge of establishing a business, the biggest danger is unchecked growth," reveals Houtz. "Some businesses grow faster than they can handle it and, as a result, customer service, product quality and employee morale suffer and kick off a negative cycle of activity that dooms the business." More Americans Want To Be Their Own BossPAGE B 2 THE STAR AUGUST 6, 2011 Did you know that everyone needs a regular eye exameven someone who doesnt wear glasses? Most people assume an annual eye exam only checks a lens prescription, but your eye doctor is also checking to make sure your eyes are healthy. The eyes are the only unobstructed, non-invasive view of blood vessels in the body, and they can tell a lot about your overall health. Through comprehensive eye exams, eye doctors can see eye conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration, as well as signs of diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Eye doctors can even identify signs of diabetes up to seven years before a patient would typically show symptoms and be diagnosed by a primary care physician. People are three times more likely to get an eye exam than a routine physical, so eye exams are a great way to identify the early warning signs of many diseases. With healthcare costs skyrocketing, its more important than ever to diagnose and treat medical conditions as soon as possiblebefore they become a true burden on a patients body and wallet, says Jonathan Stein, O.D., a VSP Vision Care provider in Manhattan Beach, Calif. And with diseases as prevalent as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol, regular eye exams become a critical part of managing a patients overall health. One condition an eye doctor checks for during a comprehensive eye exam is diabetic retinopathy. The condition is marked by damage to the blood vessels in the retina and can lead to blindness if not treated early. However, with annual eye examinations and proper follow-up care, 90 percent of all diabetes-related blindness can be prevented. High cholesterol is another condition eye doctors can detect by looking for waxy, yellowish buildup in the blood vessels of the eyes. In fact, 65 percent of time, eyecare providers detect high cholesterol before any other provider, according to a recent study commissioned by VSP Vision Care, the nations largest not-for-profit vision benefits company. By getting annual comprehensive eye exams, families and individuals alike can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars on medical costs. Proper preventive care can help avoid costly medical procedures in the future. Even more money can be saved by avoiding medical supplies and medications, time off work and potentially higher-risk insurance premiums for advanced chronic conditions.

Remember, scheduling eye exams is a relatively easy way to protect your familys vision and health.

WATKINS JR., MD HEALTH NOTES MULTIPLE MYELOMA (Primary Bone-Marrow Cancer) GENERAL INFORMATION Definition A malignancy beginning in the plasma cells of the bone marrow. Plasma cells normally produce antibodies to help destroy germs and protect against infection. With myeloma, this function becomes impaired, and the body cannot deal effectively with infection. BODY PARTS INVOLVED Bone marrow of all bones, but most common n the thigh, back, pelvis, or upper arms. SEX OF AGE MOST AFFECTED Both sexes, but most common in men between the ages of 50 and 70. SIGNS & SYMPTOMS: Pain in the affected bone. The pain is severe, boring and deep. If the bone collapses, pain spreads to other parts of the body. *Weight loss. *Symptoms of anemia, such as weakness, paleness, tiredness and breathless ness. CAUSES Unknown. The bone pain is caused by cancerous abnormal plasma cells. The anemia is caused by damaged red blood cells and decreased platelets. RISK INCREASES WITH Unknown. HOW TO PREVENT No specific preventative measures. WHAT TO EXPECT APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE Self-care after diagnosis. *Doctors treatment. *Radiation therapy to relieve bone pain. *Hospitalization in late stage. *Plasmaspheresis.

PAGE B-4 THE STAR AUGUST 2, 2011 URQTVU Saying he felt the fittest he's been in "years," Tiger Woods met the press for 25 minutes on Tuesday at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, where he will compete this week in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Woods has missed the last 11 weeks rehabbing from left knee and Achilles injuries sustained at the Masters, but has been given a clean bill of health by his doctors. "The great thing is I don't feel a thing," Woods said of his left leg. "It feels solid, it feels stable, no pain. That's one of the reasons why I took as long as I did to come back is that I want to get to this point where I can go ahead and start playing golf again like this. It's been a very long time, and it feels good to go out there today and hit balls like this, go practice and feel nothing and walk around and pretty much do anything I want on the golf course." Woods arrived at the course early Tuesday, practiced, then played nine holes in about 90 minutes in muggy conditions. Afterward, he practiced again. His last competitive round was at The PLAYERS Championship, where he played nine holes and withdrew due to injury. As always, Woods' goal this week is to win. He said his left leg feels explosive and his ball-striking has been sharp. "I actually didn't feel any," he said of rust. "I still haven't been in a competitive environment yet, so that's a totally different atmosphere. But the shots felt very crisp, very clean. I was very pleased." Woods has been working with swing coach Sean Foley, who followed him on the course Tuesday. "Everything that we've been working on we're very pleased with today, and just got to keep working at it," said Woods. "Tomorrow is another day to refine it and be ready to go by Thursday." Woods has been working on his short game for a while, and started hitting drivers about two weeks ago. "When my leg started feeling explosive again, had the strength, that's when I was cleared to go," he said. What did he miss the most? "Trying to beat these boys," said Woods. "That's fun. Getting out there and trying to win golf tournaments, being there with a chance to win, whether you win or fail, just being there is a rush, and it's just so much fun. Trying to pull off shot that you've done in practice when it matters the most, see what you've got. That's fun." Woods will use good friend Bryon Bell as his caddie this week, having parted ways with Steve Williams. "I thought it was time for a change," said Woods. "I felt that Steve and I had just an amazing run. Steve is a hell of a caddie, there's no denying that. He's helped my career, and I think I've helped his as well. We won a bunch of tournaments, but I just felt like it was time to change things up a little bit." As for the future, Woods has had plenty of volunteers, but is weighing his options.

AUGUST 6, 2011THE STARPR 1 PREP RAP PREP RAP Youth Section Youth Section Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated Crowns The 2011 “Ms. Zeta”In an elegant display of beauty, creativity, talent and intellect, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. recently held the Ms. Zeta pageant. The pageant, presented in conjunction with the 2011 Zeta Organizational Leadership conference, was held at the beautiful J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington, DC, the nations capital and birthplace of the sorority. The Ms. Zeta pageant promotes scholarship, service, sisterly love and finer womanhood … the principles upon which the sorority was founded. This years winner was Erin Lynch from Clarksville, Tennessee and a member of Rho Mu Zeta chapter since 2006. According to Zeta Phi Beta International President Sheryl P. Underwood, The Ms. Zeta Pageant was established to show that the principles of Zeta are embodied in women who are beautiful, talented, diverse, smart and strong…women of vision, service and faith.Ž The Ms. Zeta pageant, which began in 2009, is open to all members, regardless of age, race or position and is a platform from which the message of the sorority can be shared around the country and the world. Underwood affirms that diversity in membership has always been at the forefront of Zeta Phi Beta, and we will continue to embody inclusiveness in everything we do, because that is who we are!Ž Part of what attracted Lynch to Zeta Phi Beta was the sororitys open arms to women of all races and ethnic backgrounds. My attraction to Zeta, aside from the commitment to scholarship, was the diversity I originally witnessed in my undergraduate years. I loved that this organization didn't have a stereotypical image, and that my cultural diversity, as bi-racial, was not a hindrance.Ž As Ms. Zeta 2011-2012, Lynch says I want to let others know about this diversity and acceptance that we have through sisterhood, and that our collective celebration of what makes us culturally different is also what makes our organization strong. I truly believe "there's a Zeta in every woman regardless of race, creed, or color." The evening of the competition was filled with pageantry and stellar performances, including a serenade of the contestants by R&B musical group After 7. Each contestant competed in the following categories: State Costumes and Zeta paraphernalia; Swim/Beach Attire; Evening Gown and Talent. For ladies competing in the Ms. Zeta pageant, the work starts with the regional competitions. As winner of the regional competition Lynch was eligible to compete in the national Ms. Zeta pageant. Constance Smith Hendricks, PhD (RN, FAAN), who serves as the 18th South Central Regional Director, which includes the state of Tennessee has this to say, Erin is an intelligent young woman who will represent Zeta as the organization of smart, beautiful and phenomenal women, that we are.Ž Lynch is currently pursuing a Doctor of Education from Tennessee State University having earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Secondary Education from James Madison University in Virginia and a Master of Arts in Special Education from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. When offering advise to future Ms. Zeta candidates Lynchs Pageant Coach and fellow chapter member, Stephanie Peeler, has this to say, I would advise future Ms. Zeta candidates to start early with wardrobe and talent preparation. This is a fun and exciting event for all, but you must remember to represent Zeta with style and grace.Ž Chandra B. Owens, Lynchs Chapter President has this advise for future candidates for Ms. Zeta, Surround yourself with realistic people to help you make realistic goals and a plan to accomplish them.Ž She adds, Erin represents the strength of women who are of diverse backgrounds: a military family, teacher, artist, mother, sister, mentor and friend. She is now a walking billboard for the local Rho Mu Zeta chapter and the international Zeta Phi Beta Sorority sisterhood.Ž We are so proud of all of our sisters that accepted the challenge of sisterly competition that the Ms. Zeta pageant offers. To compete in this manner requires a lot of heart, effort, talent and teamwork. We know that competition of this nature is not easy, but one can use this platform to enhance skills needed to succeed in life,Ž says International President Underwood. She adds this challenge to future candidates, If you work hard, you too can wear the crown of Ms. Zeta!Ž The Ms. Zeta Pageant Coordinator was the Inaugural Ms. Zeta (2009), Lamesa Furlow-Fluery from the Southern Region. The 2011 Ms. Zeta was crowned by the 2010, Ms. Zeta Rikkia Rellford, from the Southeastern Region. A new Ms. Zeta will be crowned at the 2012 Zeta Phi Beta Boule in Chicago, Illinois. The 2011 Ms. Zeta Court includes: 1st runner up Elizabeth Lassiter Tau AlphaNebraska Midwestern Region 2nd runner up Tiera Cobey Phi Gamma Zeta Virginia Eastern Region 3rd runner up Lulu Orange Beta Tau Zeta Florida Southeastern Region 4th runner up Elizabeth Aigbekaen Delta Delta Zeta California Pacific Region The Founding PrinciplesŽ Recipients were also recognized: Miss ScholarshipErin Lynch … South Central Region Miss Service … Elizabeth Lassiter … Midwest Region Miss Sisterly Love Lulu Orange … Southeastern Region Miss Finer Womanhood Tamikia Greene … Southern Region International Grand Basileus Sheryl P.

AUGUST 6, 2011THE STARPR 2 PREP RAP PREP RAP MAYOR ALVIN BROWN HELPS SAVE JROTCJacksonvilles business and community leaders have teamed up with Mayor Alvin Brown to raise the money needed to keep Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) programs running in Duval County public high schools. Budget-cutting effectively ended JROTC at Mandarin, Wolfson, Englewood and Raines high schools before the mayors announcement alongside Duval Schools Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals and U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw Tuesday. Jacksonville is a military town,Ž Mayor Brown said. It would be unconscionable to have a military town that doesnt support its JROTC programs.Ž The effort raised more than $200,000, an amount that the mayor said shows the strength of public-private partnerships and the will of area leaders to preserve programs that benefit education and youth development. There are 480 students enrolled in JROTC at the four schools. The program costs $417.76 per student, per year, to operate. JROTC dates back to the National Defense Act of 1916. Jacksonvilles JROTC cadets are part of an estimated 281,000 cadets learning about ethics, citizenship and leadership from 4,000 professional instructors at 1,645 schools in the U.S. and at American installations overseas. For me, theres a possibility I wouldnt have graduated unless I was in JROTC,Ž said Keiondra Smothers, 20, who now volunteers with the program weekly to help run drills. This is an outlet. It can turn kids around.Ž Smothers was one of about fifty people gathered Tuesday for a formal announcement outside Englewood High School. A color guard welcomed Mayor Brown and dignitaries before the crowd cheered for the news. About an hour before the event, Mandarin mother Barbara Butikis became choked up when she approached Mayor Brown at the Ed Ball Building downtown and asked him what could be done to save JROTC for her son, Jackson, a sophomore. Its saved,Ž Mayor Brown told her. Mayor Brown was visiting the citys Planning and Development Department employees when Butikis, who was in the office getting together paperwork on a title, decided to approach him. She said she was caught pleasantly off-guard at his response. My son was shaken up. He wanted to keep going to be a junior officer,Ž Butikis said. This is great news. Youve got to keep good kids good.Ž Mayor Alvin Brown Reaches out to Donors to Save JROTC David Hunt … PIO, City of Jacksonville The money local leaders committed to the project will cover JROTC expenses for the upcoming school year. Mayor Brown said he decided to offer one-time support to encourage JROTC parents and students as well as the military community to recruit more students and raise more money in future school years. The students already have shown they were willing to do what they could to save the program. Last weekend, they dressed in fatigue pants and t-shirts to alert passing Beach Boulevard motorists to a charity car wash they were hosting to raise funds. JROTC has grown beyond its role as a military recruiting tool. Raines Principal George Maxey said, Many JROTC students go on to twoand four-year colleges after graduation.Ž Maxey said he also believes the JROTC develops character, confidence and decision-making skills in a way that differs from sports programs, something that helps his students go on to be community leaders. It allows children to be part of something greater than themselves,Ž Maxey said. DID YOU KNOW?Tips To Save At The Pump(SPM Wire) Its easy to panic at the gas pump when you watch those numbers fly by as you fill up. Much of the increased seasonal cost of gas can be offset by adjusting driving habits and implementing a preventative maintenance plan, says Rich White, Executive Director of the Car Care Council, which is offering these tips:. € Properly tuning your car improves gas mileage by an average of 4 percent. € Keep tires properly inflated for another 3 percent. € Replacing dirty spark plugs can reduce mileage by two miles per gallon. € Change oil regularly and gain another mile per gallon. Driving behavior also impacts fuel efficiency, so observe the speed limit and avoid excessive idling, along with quick starts and stops.

AUGUST 6, 2011THE STARPR 4 PREP RAP PREP RAPHEALTHY LIVING----------------------------------------------What Parents Need To Know About Infant Health(StatePoint) Are your baby's vaccinations up-to-date? Immunizations may hurt a little at the time, but getting your children vaccinated will protect them for a lifetime. Infants are born with natural immunity to some diseases, inherited from their mothers, but this immunity soon wanes and is gone by 6 months. Thats why pediatricians start immunizing infants against infectious diseases at birth … by the time their inherited immunity is gone, they will be protected by vaccines. The diseases we immunize infants against are all still here, including measles, whooping cough, and Hib meningitis,Ž says Dr. O. Marion Burton, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). These diseases are dangerous and sometimes deadly. In California, 10 infants died of whooping cough, or pertussis, in 2010, the worst epidemic in more than 40 years.Ž Other states across the country have seen similar whooping cough epidemics as well as outbreaks of other vaccine-preventable diseases. Thats why it`s important to vaccinate infants against pertussis as soon as they are old enough -around 2 months -and to follow the recommended schedule for other vaccines. The AAP recommends the following immunization schedule during the first year: € Hepatitis B vaccine at birth, 1-2 months, and 6-12 months. While adults exposed to hepatitis B have only a 10 percent chance of becoming chronic carriers of the virus, babies have a more than 95 percent chance of developing severe health problems, including liver cancer, if they are exposed. Young children have been infected by becoming blood brothersŽ or sharing chewing gum. Children can become infected from caretakers, family members or friends who may not know their own hepatitis B status. € Rotavirus, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b, Pneumococcal, and inactivated Poliovirus vaccine between 2 and 18 months. Immunization has made these diseases relatively rare in the U.S., but they are not eradicated, and so they remain a constant threat to infant health. Vaccination is the only way to not only protect your child, but prevent an outbreak in your community. € Yearly influenza vaccine after 6 months of age. Influenza is an unpredictable virus and in some children will cause severe illness, even death. Influenza kills scores of children every single year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. € Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella and Hepatitis A after 12 months. Measles cases in the U.S. are usually importedŽ by people who travel outside the United States, become infected and return home. The virus is so contagious, that any unvaccinated person nearby will become sick. This happened in 2008, when an infected traveler exposed dozens of other people, including children whose parents decided not to immunize them. The AAP advises parents to adhere to their pediatricians recommendations regarding vaccine schedules. It is the best way to ensure children are protected from diseases when they are most vulnerable.

High Speed Chase with Baby OnboardFlorida Highway Patrol were notified by an air patrol unit about an SUV that was driving 94 miles per hour along Interstate 75 near Lake City. A patrolman stopped the vehicle, which was driven by Michael Alonzo Ford, 23. His girlfriend was also in the vehicle in the front passenger seat. She said that she was not feeling well and that they were driving to look for a rest area. Ford was asked to step out, but as soon as the door opened, Ford slammed the door closed immediately and drove off. Ford led the patrolman on a high-speed chase driving up to 115 miles per hour on the I-75. Ford was changing lanes and even driving on the shoulders of the roads to drive around vehicles. Then he got off the Country Road 136 exit onto a rural two-lane road driving as fast as 100 mph. Ford knew he was being followed by an air unit above and eventually slowed down, but crashed into a tree. Ford got out of the vehicle, ignored the patrol officer, and started running off. Fords girlfriend also got out of the vehicle holding what seemed to be a baby.They both got out just in time before the vehicle burst into flames and stayed with the patrolman. The baby was only a year old and both passengers were hospitalized with minor injuries. A dog team was sent to search for Ford. He was captured shortly thereafter and was hospitalized for minor injuries before being sent to jail. Ford is being charged with driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer, child endangerment, and leaving the scene of a crash involving damage to property. Police say he also had an active warrant as a felon for violation of probation possession of cocaine.

AUGUST 6, 2011 THE STAR C&J 3Bizarre Crimes Bizarre Crimeswho, what, when...huh? Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Man Gets Caught with Gun and Drugs While Entering County Courthouse Timmy Hagans Jr., 21, had been arrested for trying to pass the Duval County Courthouse security checkpoint with a concealed handgun and marijuana. Reports say Hagans was trying to enter building and a double-barrel Derringer, a .22 caliber, palm-sized handgun was found at the security checkpoint, along with three bags of marijuana. The type of gun Hagans had is sold at markets and is usually used as a blank-shooting starter at sporting events. Also the marijuana was hidden inside a shoe of Hagans backpack. Investigators believe the gun was not a registered weapon. But even if Hagans had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, it is prohibited to bring guns into the courthouse. After the gun was revealed, Hagans told security guards that he didnt know he had a gun in his backpack. The Courthouse security manager said that it is rare to arrest someone with a gun at the checkpoint because they would usually have a permit. Those people would usually be told to leave and come back without the weapon. Records also show that he had been in trouble with marijuana possession in the same week and a number of traffic citations the last several years. Man Swallows Bags of Drugs to Hide it From Police A silver Toyota Corolla was spotted weaving and swerving in and out of traffic lanes. The vehicle was stopped to investigate for impaired driving. The officer smelled marijuana from the vehicle and the driver was ordered to stp out of the vehicle.

Four bags of cocaine and one bag of marijuana was regurgitated. Parker appeared to have consumed a whole bag of cocaine as a ripped up empty bag as also regurgitated and Parker was immediately transported to the hospital. Parker was arrested after and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence and traffic charges including driving without a drivers license. He will also be held on a $22,000 bond after being released from the hospital.

First Amnesty Day in Duval County Clears Non-Violent Offenders, Saves TaxpayersNearly 100 people now have minor, non-violent criminal charges cleared from their records or have an August 16th court date whi ch nullifies any arrest warrant they may have had before participating in the first-ever Amnesty Day. The Law Offices of Public Defe nder Matt Shirk spearheaded the Pro Bono effort which took place July 30th, with volunteer cooperation from all contingencies of the Duva l County Court system. The Saturday court proceedings opened to a crowded foyer at the Downtown Jacksonville Public Library Auditorium at 9:30 a.m. and lasted two hours. This would not have been the success that it was without Assistant Public Defender and Director of County Court Cynthia Hunold ,Ž said Shirk. She led the effort by securing Judges Hugh Carithers and Jean Johnson, enlisting the help of Assistant State Attorneys Duval County Clerk personnel, bringing uniformed JSO officers and the necessary court reporters. Thanks also to Chief Assistant Publ ic Defender Refik Eler, APDs Brian Crick and Jay Stewart and PD Investigators Hal Bennett and Greg Strickland. All parties voluntarily wor ked Amnesty Day and the Jacksonville Public Library donated a great venue.Ž In addition to providing a public service to many individuals, Amnesty Day also proved to benefit Duval County taxpayers. Any person with an active arrest warrant faces at least one night in County Jail which costs approximately $50. Thousands in public funds were saved based on the cases that were resolved on Saturday. Additionally, revenue was generated since people taking part in Amnesty Day either paid or agreed to pay all applicable fines they faced. JSO also benefits from a decreased workload because there are 50 fewer arrests and bookings to administer. Based on the success of Amnesty Day and the savings in tax dollars, Shirk indicated that his office wo uld work to offer similar events in the future. Staff from the PD Office identified nearly 400 active warrants on non-violent offenders and sent them a notice of the event. W hile 50 of those individuals in fact participated in Amnesty Day, nearly 50 others who hoped to clear any charges they faced showed up to inquire about resolving their cases. The Judges issued these people a new court date of August 16th, thus nullifying those active warrants.
