President Obama, in his speech before the Congress and the American public was more forceful than in recent speeches since he took office. He told the members that they must stop the political circus and do something to help the economy. With that said, he offered what he called, The American Job Act, that he said would put more people back to work as he challenged Congress to approve a $447 billion package to revive the job market. The president advised that what he was proposing has been approved, in part by Democrats and Republicans in the past as he emphasized that they can not continue the party voting pattern that has been practiced recently, in an effort to wait until a new president has been elected. The American people and the United States who in the past has been the world leader, must vote on this matter. You must pass this job plan right now,Ž said Mr. Obama. His proposals would provide jobs, cut taxes, make what he calls necessary changes for medicare in a manner that would help. He stated that the plan he is proposing would not be short term. It will put this country back on tract as leaders of the world. The president said that his plan would be for all the people and reminded all of the fact that veterans go to war for us and come back without an ability to take care of their families, go to college, and utilize all of the benefits that veterans in the past, as his grandfather, used to better their lives or their families. He stated that the plan would help small businesses and close some of the loop holes, making tax benefits, beneficial to all rather than just the rich. It would create and keep jobs in America. He wants to see other countries drive American cars, etc. yyy0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqo Nqqmkpi"hqt"ewuvqogtu"vq"rcvtqpk|g"{qwt dwukpguu"qt"wvknk|g"{qwt"ugtxkeguA"Kh"{qw cpuygtgf"[GU."vjgp"{qw"pggf"vq"rnceg"cp"cf kp"Vjg"Hnqtkfc"qt"Igqtikc"Uvct#""ECNN ;261988/::56"vq"rnceg"{qwt"cf"VQFC[## Check, Money Order, Or Credit Cards Accepted PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFC‘U"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT K P U K F G Opinion-Editorial...........A-2 Church....................A-3 Local-Georgia................B-3 Local-Florida.............B-1 Talk of the Town...............A4 Columns......................B-2 Sports..........................B-4 Crime & Justice..(A).C&J-1-4 Prep Rap............(B).

On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, the bodies of Jeanette Hawkins and Ricardo RickyŽ Morgan were found in a wooded area off Harper Street and South Myrtle Avenue. JSO says an investigation is ongoing to determine why this couple is dead and who did it. Mrs. Reid, Jeanette s mother, feels that Ricardo Morgan was running from something he was involved in while living in Tampa, Florida. It is reported that Jeanette met Ricardo in Tampa. They got married about five months ago. According to Ms. Reid, family and friends tried to discourage the marriage. Ms. Reid explained to The Florida/Georgia Star that Ricardo stated on several occasions that if Jeanette left him he would kill her and then kill himself. However, Ms. Reid does not believe that happened because both bodies were found burned beyond recognition and indications are they were dumped in the area. Ms. Reid believes a drug deal went bad. Karen Gamble, a friend of Jeanettes family says she also believe something in Ricardos past brought him to Jacksonville and it caught up with him.Ž When asked why or what, Ms. Gamble stated, I dont know. It could be drugs, he could have owned some money or took some money or did somebody harm.Ž Ms. Reid and Ms. Gamble believes the alleged killer was after Ricardo and Jeanette just happened to be there.

MAD DADS is an acronym for: Men Against Destruction, Defending Against Drugs and Socialdisorder. The purpose of the organization is to address the current state of crisis found in neighborhoods across this country by raising the consciousness of parents in preventing the presence of drugs, gangs and violence! The organization recruits committed MEN; promoting adult male responsibility to effectively combat violence, drugs, immorality and other destructive forces within local communities. Mr. Staton served as National President and Cofounder of the National Organization, based in Jacksonville, Florida, with 60 plus Chapters in 17 States. Mr. Staton also served as Vice President of the Jacksonville Chapter. The national organization received citations from both Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton, including being selected as one of Americas Promising PracticesŽ by President Clintons Initiative on Race, and George Bushs Thousand Points of Light. The group also received intense media attention ranging from appearances on national network programs -such as Good Morning America to articles in numerous publications -including the New York Times.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in federal court. Gov.

As Americans prepares the memorial programs ten years after 9/11 2001, the United States raised its alert level at military bases ahead of the 9/11 attacks programs with a report to warn of gaps and weaknesses in the nations security apparatus. President Obamas top counter-terrorism advisor John Brennan on Wednesday cautioned that the U.S. must maintain high vigilance on security matters, as AlQaeda is still there,Ž despite bin Ladens death. It is understood that mayors of Jacksonville and Brunswick are aware of the cautions being taken. It is thought that people in New York and larger cities are more concerned. as they visit the memorial site. The State Department issued a worldwide travel alert ahead of the 10th anniversary telling Americans to be vigilant.

Tropical Depression 14 May Soon Be Maria... Another System BrewingState College, Pa. -7 September 2011 -AccuWeather.com reports weather systems from the tropics will continue to pose the threat of heavy rain and flooding problems for the Atlantic Seaboard through midSeptember. Current indications are that at least two more systems have a shot at wandering close enough to the east coast of North America to bring heavy rainfall to troubled areas dealing with flooding. The next two names on the list of tropical cyclones in the 2011 Atlantic season are Maria and Nate. Hurricane and Tropical Weather Coordinator Dan Kottlowski states that an area in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and Tropical Depression 14 in the central Atlantic are concerns. "One or both of the systems has a window of opportunity to reach the Eastern U.S.," Kottlowski said. A system is expected to brew over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico this week in the shadow of parent storm Lee. "Steering flow in the region could allow this feature to wander northeastward this weekend into next week," Kottlowski said. At the same time, steering flow over the central Atlantic could guide T.D. 14 farther west than Katia, perhaps bringing it close to or over the southern Atlantic coast later in the month. There is a risk for two back-to-back rainmakers along the Atlantic Seaboard around the middle of the month. "Given how wet things are or will continue to get this week in the wake of Irene, and then Lee, the worst-case scenario is we have renewed flooding from one or both systems, even without measuring the strength of both features in terms of wind and wave action," Kottlowski added. Irene brought flooding to parts of the Northeast. Lee has flooded part of the Southeast and will bring flooding to part of the Northeast. Even in the wake of both systems, streams and rivers will remain high, setting the stage for more trouble with flooding if any tropical system wanders nearby. Even though Katia will likely re-curve well to the east of the Atlantic Seaboard, this does not mean that people in the same area should let their guard down for the balance of the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season. The overall weakness in the Bermuda High that developed in mid-August remains.

Simpson First African American Inducted Into The Florida Press Hall Of Fame By Dr. Dan Collins Just like the day when President Kennedy was assassinated, everybody remembers exactly what they were doing when those four hijacked planes snuffed out nearly 3,000 lives on September 11, 2001. It was personal. In the initial seconds, there was confusion. Perhaps, it was just a tragic accident. But as the morning of 9/11 unfolded, it became crystal clear. This was no accident. It was terrorism cold and calculated. Emotionally, there is a big difference between falling down the steps and being pushed down the steps. Collectively, we were all "pushed down the steps". Intention makes all of the difference in the world. Our psychological injury from 9/11 comes, in large part, because it was the terrorists' plan to harm us. Defiantly, we have survived. But personally and culturally we would never be the same. We were unavoidably changed: scarred, dazed, traumatized. Psychological and emotional trauma leaves an indelible mark. It alters the way we see things. Trauma changes the way we take in the world. Here are a couple of the key ways that the overwhelming stress of September 11 continue to affect us: 1. Can't Balance Your Emotions Ten years after the initial attack, we may still find we may find ourselves experiencing moments of what I call the four useless emotions of trauma: panic, worry, rage, or despair when confronted with information related to 9/11. These emotional responses are useless because they never help us to identify helpful ways of handling our reactions to what happened on that fateful day in a balanced and rational way. Instead, trauma puts us on edge and prompts us to over-react. Specific to September 11, another emotion that surfaces is an irrational fear of people of the Islamic faith tradition because the terrorists claimed to be Muslim. We may also take the emotional extreme of being so affected by our feelings about 9/11 that we hit the "emotional off switch" and numb out. We can tell when this happens when someone detaches to such a degree that they seem to not care. Taking Our Power back We take our power back by taking away the terrorist's greatest weapon: fear. We can choose our emotions. Instead of fear, we can choose compassion, keeping us connected with the best in us and others. We can even use anger effectively. While rage is an out-of-control emotion, anger can be effective when used to affirm a boundary which says, "I won't tolerate being violated with aggression". We can also choose determination, an emotion which enables us to keep moving forward in a positive direction. We can choose to not remain bottled up with toxic emotions. We can identify responses that work, like not taking the "hate bait". We can be wise enough to not confuse the distorted perspective of terrorists with anything remotely resembling the nobility of devout faith. True faith replenishes life. 2. Can't Tell Time When people have been overwhelmed by trauma, they tend to live in the past. Some people have a hard time getting over what happened to them regarding 9/11 because they keep re-experiencing their pain through nightmares, flashbacks and intrusive thoughts. Think of 9/11 nightmares and flashbacks as "instant replays" of our trauma. Intrusive thoughts occur as we are engaged in almost any activity and our mind "changes the channel" to something 9/11 related. Taking Our Power Back We take our power back by realizing that the way out of trauma is living in the present. Trauma confuses the past with the present. We can heal powerfully, as we acknowledge the tragedy of September 11th, but give new life to ourselves as we affirm that 9/11/01 is over and September 11th 2011 is a new day with a whole new story and we get to write it!

In her first foray into writing Miss Mary, as she prefers to be called because she is an old black womanŽ, talks in a witty, conversational tone, sometimes tinged with emotion, as she opines about the harsh treatment of the first AfricanAmerican President and the need for all Americans to unify and get their majority back.Ž If her observations sound familiar, its because many of us have had similar conversations around the dinner table with family and friends, in beauty parlors and barber shops. Thank you, Miss Mary, for being our voice in this masterful work! Mary Bonner Marks is the youngest daughter of Killis K. B.Ž and Ruth Bonner. She attended local schools, Northwestern Junior High School and Stanton Senior High School (Class of 1963).

SEPTEMBER 10, 2011THE STARPAGE A-7 Around the Area Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown Walk of the Brooklyn Community Photos by Wesley H. Lester/City of Jacksonville Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, along with Donald Foy of MAD DADS and officers of the area, recently visited the Brooklyn community of Jacksonville. They had a moment of prayer and visited with residents in the community, listening to their views and concerns of the area. The Brooklyn Community and Park History: Brooklyn Park is located in the Brooklyn section of Jacksonville. For several years after the Civil War, a garrison of both black and white Union soldiers were stationed in Brooklyn. Some of the black soldiers remained or returned to live in the area, and were joined by former slaves, making the northwestern section of Brooklyn a black residential community. Brooklyn was platted in 1868. The City purchased the park property in 1971 and created the park soon thereafter. Over the years, the Brooklyn Neighborhood Association has strived to improve the aging community, with much help from the Riverside Presbyterian Church and the Citys recent redevelopment projects. Mayor Stresses Need for Public-Private Partnership As part of a breakfast meeting with the San Marco Rotary Tuesday, Mayor Alvin Brown stressed the idea of public-private partnerships to make Jacksonville a more successful city. The mayor is developing nine advisory councils to partner community and business leaders with City Hall. His objective is to acquire the best policy-setting information in areas like education, business development and military affairs. The private sector is the engine of any community. Government isnt. Government can be a catalyst for change. It can foster good will. It can create an environment that says we are open for business,Ž said Mayor Brown. It makes good business sense to tap into the best and the brightest that our city has to offer. We have to work with every key stakeholder to take Jacksonville to the next level.Ž In recent weeks, the mayor has seen the benefits of publicprivate partnerships as more than $200,000 in donations came in to save the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps at four Duval County public high schools. More than $400,000 was raised in separate drives to save golf, tennis, cross-country and midd le school football. The Tuesday breakfast was part of a series of talks Mayor Brown is giving to explain his vision for the City of Jacksonville.

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2THE STAR SEPTEMBER 10, 2011 LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT: Paul and Cathy married when he was 55 and she was 25. She had one child; he had none. They saved and invested for the future. When he was 63, she bought additional life insurance on his life because she was concerned about her security. When he turned 70, (she was 40), she started to consider whether to put him in a nursing home or quit her job and care for him at home when he got sick. But she failed to consider that when he was 73, she would be the one who spent 3 months in a hospital and died at 43. RESULT: Now at 75 with no children, and his beneficiary deceased, Pauls only stress in life is who will benefit from all that life insurance. He has slight dementia, but says he is looking for a new young wife. He might just find oneƒ..or one just might find him!

School was out for two weeks for spud harvest, and everyone had lots to do. We were loading hay into the loft of our barn when the message came. The PaulŽ family had been in an accident. Mrs. Paul and the children had been visiting relatives in Salt Lake City when the accident occurred. Many of the family were in critical condition. Mr. Paul dropped everything and headed to Utah, to the hospital, asking us if we could feed his cattle while he was gone. We wondered if there wasnt more we could do. We knew they still had potatoes to dig, as well as some late season hay that was sitting in the field. We didnt have potato equipment, but I could work hay. Dad said that he would handle the chores so that I could help out. I loaded our hay piler onto our truck and headed on my way, not knowing who I would get to drive for me. I neednt have worried. As I pulled onto the Paul farm, cars were coming from every direction. Potato diggers, trucks, and every other imaginable piece of equipment rumbled down the road. A real estate agent volunteered to drive as I stacked the bales coming up the side of the truck. Other trucks poured onto the field, and, shortly after dark, the hay was all safely in the barn. A group of men helped me feed the cows before we retired for the night. The next day, at dawn, I was back to share Mr. Pauls instructions with a whole crew of neighbors who were there to help with the feeding. After the sun warmed the air enough, the half dozen or so diggers started again to roll through the fields. I took the job of forking away the debris piling up along the edges of the conveyor belt in one cellar. When I would finish, I would take my place picking through the potatoes. Standing by me on one side was a banker, on the other side was a school teacher. There were men from the sawmill, businessmen, secretaries, and people from every walk of life, as well as fellow teenagers. There were so many people and so much equipment that the biggest problem was trying to keep out of each others way. In fact, we exceeded the capacity of the cellars equipment to store them, so some diggers were sent on to other jobs. The variety of personalities in the cellar made for interesting stories. Some of the characters there were rough and some were highly refined, but I learned that each persons heart was much the same. Some didnt even know the Pauls, but came to help, overcome by thought of what it would feel like if the tragedy were their own. In short order the harvest was in and the machinery moved back to the farms from whence it had come. Many went home to harvest their own fields, for they had chosen to help a neighbor first. It was late at night, while our small group was finishing the feeding, when the lights from a car turned into the driveway. Mr. Paul emerged and approached us to thank us for our work. Hows the family?Ž someone asked. Mr. Paul looked down in discouragement. Not well, but some other relatives came so I could come home and try to get the harvest in.Ž Another member of our group put his hand on Mr. Pauls shoulder. Perhaps you should look in the cellar.Ž As Mr. Paul stepped into the cellar and flipped the switch, shining the lights on the huge mounds of potatoes, this tough man with work-roughened hands started to sob. The kind neighbor added, You go back to your family. Alls well here.Ž Now, more than a quarter century later, I still see these selfless acts of kindness occurring. And as long as I do, I know those words, embedded deep in my heart, will still echo true. Alls well here.Ž Let us know how you feel about our columns by sending us your comments to : clara@thefloridastar.com and yknuckles@thefloridastar.com.

It is one thing to deal with a deadly enemy that you can see, size up and understand. It is another when that enemy is an unknown microscopic virus that is threatening to wipe out humanity if it is not contained. Thus is the situation in the new Warner Bros. Pictures film Contagion.Ž Laurence Fishburne plays the role of Dr. Ellis Cheever, Deputy Director of the Center For Disease Control and Prevention who heads a team of researchers who mobilize to break the code of a unique biological pathogen as it continues to mutate worldwide. This film is particularly scary in that this could actually happen. It also hits a little too close to home with the fact that the public would be misled causing panic and chaos everywhere. Fishburne has compiled an impressive body of stage, TV and film work since his debut at age 10 starring on One Life To LiveŽ and his first feature film at age 12 Cornbread, Earl and Me.Ž When asked to describe his character, Fishburne says, This is probably his first real big assignment in terms of dealing with an infectious disease like this one. Hes a smart and confident guy. Hes really the voice of reason in all of this. Hes the guy that you look to whose going to tell you that everything is going to be fine. We are in control of the situation and have the best people working on it to figure out what it is and we are going to contain it. Were going to find a protocol by which to create a vaccine to make sure that this thing does a little damage as possible. So hes really sort of the still calm voice throughout the picture. Hes the person that you want to look to for reassurance that its going to be OK.Ž At one point in the film, Dr. Cheever calls his fianc (played by Sanaa Lathan), and tells her to get out of Chicago because the infection is seriously loose in town but that is classified information that he wasnt supposed to give out even to his own wife. Fishburne chuckles at that fact that in real life people do what they have to do to protect their love ones. He states, As the head of the CDC, he has a responsibility and an obligation to keep this information from going out. But as a human being, as a man who has an obligation to protect his family, he is conflicted and he makes a choice.Ž To make sure the movie was medically accurate, experts in the filed of infectious medicine were brought on board as technical advisors. Fishburne was particularly impress with his on set mentor W. Ian Lipkin, MD, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University and a professor of epidemiology, neurology and pathology. Once I talked to Dr. Lipkin who had real strong opinions about how all to this should sort of play out. He was with us everyday and he is really committed to what he does. We would be working and he would pull out his phone and say let me show you this. And it would be something that could potentially be an outbreak. So the stakes for what he does is always here. Were there any particular aspects of this film that Fishbone personally enjoyed? He lights up again, I love the size of it. I love the international scope of it, that it takes place in so many different parts of the world. Some happen to be my favorite parts of the world. Its global and there is something about that that appeals to me.Ž When he first read the script Fishburne said, I was kind of blown away by how smart it was. Theres a lot of what is being made now is kind of stupid. I was honored to asked to be a part of it because it is a smart movie.Ž When asked if his germ phobia has increased or decreased after making this movie? Fishburne laughs, Im aint afraid of germs man and I aint afraid of getting sick. Dying --well thats some other s**t!

Pictures, Participant Media and Imagenation Abu Dhabi, a Double Feature Films/Gregory Jacobs Production. Starring Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Geyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Sanaa Lathan, Bryan Cranston and Jennifer Ehle. Directed by Steven Soderbergh. Screenplay by Scott Z. Burns. Produced by Michael Shamberg, Stacey Sher and Gregory Jacobs. The scary thing about this movie is that it could actually happen in real life. With all of the superstar actors in the cast, one might think a bunch of egos would clash but they make every character come alive. There is no action and the pace is real slow with people getting sick and the psychological head trippin that goes with mass hysteria. This is more of an intellectual film. If that is not your cup-of-tea, save this one for cable. Tanner Hall. Anchor Bay Films. Starring Chris Kattan, Amy Sedaris, Tom Everett Scott, Rooney Mara and Brie Layson. Written, directed and produced by Francesca Gregorini and Tatiana Von Forstenberg. Produced by Julie Syder. Several girls combine to make a very dull boarding school drama. It is hard to figure out which one is supposed to be the good or the bad girl. The teacher has a sexual malfunction problem while another school girl is sleeping with a married man. The pace is way to slow and what was even the point of this movie? This one will put you to sleep quickly on late night cable. Hit me up at feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net Study, Observe and Win!

SEPTEMBER 10, 2011THE STARPR 1 P P R R E E P P R R A A P P Y Y o o u u t t h h S S e e c c t t i i o o n n Mom Who Sent Kids to WrongŽ School Has Charges Reduced to MisdemeanorsThe governor on Wednesday reduced the charges against a woman jailed for using her fathers address to enroll her children in a neighboring school district, saying the penalty didnt fit the crime. Kelley Williams-Bolar, of Akron, served nine days in jail earlier this year for falsifying information on records that she used to send her daughters to Copley-Fairlawn schools. She said her conviction on two felony records tampering counts had threatened her efforts to earn her teachers license. Gov. John Kasich agreed, reducing the convictions to two misdemeanors. When I first heard about this situation, it seemed to me that the penalty was excessive for the offense,Ž the governor said in a statement. In addition, the penalty could exclude her from certain economic opportunities for the rest of her life.Ž But the governors action also came with a warning. No one should interpret this as a pass „ its a second chance,Ž Kasich said. Kasich is requiring Williams-Bolar to report for probation, serve 80 hours of community service, work full time, not take any drugs or drink alcohol and pay the cost of her prosecution. Kasichs order was a rare departure from the recommendation of the Ohio Parole Board, which said unanimously last week that Kasich should leave Williams-Bolars conviction in place. Her attorney on Wednesday praised Kasich for bucking the board. Six-Year-Old Author LaNiyah Bailey, An Anti-Bullying AdvocateLaNiyah Bailey is a 6 year old author with a message for children like her … just because you are bigger than other kid, that doesnt mean that people have the right to bully you. In her debut book, Not FAT Because I Wanna Be LaNiyah details the struggle of Jessica, a fictional girl who has an underlying medical issue that causes her to gain weight. Bullied by her peers, Jessica learns to accept her body and eventually opens up about her condition to her classmates. LaNiyah is not only speaking to other children through her book, but has become an advocate for anti bullying organizations. With a message that words can hurt and that not all weight gain is due to an unhealthy lifestyle, LaNiyah hopes her book will enlighten and entertain her young readers. I just wish this book can help other kids like meƒand I wish it can help people see that [even though] you might be big that you are not unhealthy orƒ a monster like people may make you feel.Ž DID YOU KNOW? Grandparents Day Is Coming! (SPM Wire) Its only been in existence in America since 1978, but National Grandparents Day has been increasing in popularity each year. This year it will be celebrated on September 11 by families nationwide. The holiday was founded by Marian McQuade, a housewife in West Virginia who was motivated by a desire to educate young people about the important historical contributions made by seniors. She also sought to come to the aid of lonely seniors in nursing homes. In a fitting tribute, the official flower for Grandparents Day is the Forget-me-not! Interestingly, the first Grandmothers Day is said to have been cel ebrated in Poland in 1964.

SEPTEMBER 10, 2011PREP RAPPR 2 What Happened On 9-11 (for Kids) The September 11th Attack on AmericaOn September 11, 2001, there was an attack on America. There are some men that decided that they didnt like what America stands for: freedom, liberty, and the rights of men and women of all races, backgrounds, and beliefs. So on the morning of September 11, 2001, they hijacked four planes and attacked America in a terrible way. Two of the airplanes were crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City. The third plane was crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The last plane was going to crash into another building in Washington, D.C., but the passengers stopped the hijackers, and the plane crashed into a field instead. Thousands of people lost their lives through these attacks. Hundreds of people were on the planes. Thousands died in the buildings that were hit by those planes. The men that arranged this terrible attack want Americans to feel afraid and disorganized. They want to make people who live in this country do what they say by threatening us. Basically theyre big bullies. The people of the United States are a strong group of people. Keep faith in who you are and what our country stands for and we will become even stronger than before. Classbrain.comFAMILY & PARENTING How To Choose Mobile Devices For Your Family(StatePoint) A mobile device is a very personal thing. Whether its a laptop, tablet or smartphone youre looking for, its best not to take a one-size fits all approach. What works for you may not be right for your teen or spouse. Before making a selection, there are a few factors to take into consideration, including size, operating system, design, intended use and feature set. Mobile technology devices are pervasive in our lives. Theyre our digital companions,Ž says Li Jun, Senior Vice President, Product Group at Lenovo. Whether your priority is entertainment, business, security or productivity, a little research can help you find the device that best suits your needs.Ž To get started, consider which profile best fits you: The Student Since students are very active, size matters. But with note-taking and reading a top priority, you dont want to select a mobile device thats too small. Since the device will need to go to class, study sessions and even parties, a tablet is an ideal compromise. New tablet devices weigh less than two pounds, in many cases, and come preloaded with student-friendly apps like Amazons Kindle eBook reader. The Online Socialite Are you always updating your status message? Cant enter a restaurant without checking in?Ž If your mobile device is your BFF, a device with a onestop social connection and multi-tasking interface will save on battery life and leave more time for keeping up with friends and family. The Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1, for example, offers a Social TouchŽ app that aggregates your favorite networking sites like Twitter and Facebook with your calendar and email. It also offers a front and rear camera for face-to-face networking. The Professional Do you frequently travel or meet with clients? If so, you should consider things like aesthetics, speed and functionality when choosing a device. Business-focused devices should offer features like a full-sized USB drive and SD card reader for easily transferring files between meetings, or the ability to connect presentations to an external monitor, conduct video conferences and keep your business chugging. For example, the ThinkPad Tablet comes with a corporate-friendly application that allows IT administrators to manage multiple devices remotely. Of course your business wouldnt buy file cabinets with broken locks. Youll need the same security for your digital data. Make sure your device comes with anti-theft software, which disables it if it is lost or stolen. For more on finding the right combination of function and security, and to browse different mobile devices, visit http://shop.lenovo.com. In todays connected world, a mobile device suited to your needs is essential no matter what you do for fun or money.

Many of these students have overcome great challenges to get to this point in their lives.Ž Jacksonville Job Corps center trains about 525 students per year. The young men and women study to become carpenters, electricians, certified nurse assistants, office administrators, pharmacy technicians and other professionals.

The center hosts two graduations per year in order to facilitate the many students completing the program. Job Corps students from all over the state will return to participate in the graduation ceremony.

The contest was designed to promote financial literacy for youth, using Williams new book, I Got Bank as a learning tool.

The essay winners are Jordan Hartway, age 10, from Columbus, OH; Jaidah Lindsey, age 11, from Boston, MA; and Nailah Pierce, age 12, from Beverly, MA. Each will receive a $1,000 savings account at OneUnited Bank. We were not only surprised to receive so many wonderful essays, but even more astounded by the maturity of the writing,Ž said Williams. Although it was difficult to choose only three winners, these winning essays distinguished themselves based on their compelling content, uniqueness and inspirational message about financial literacy,Ž she continued.

But, with some basic dorm room accessories its easy to create a space theyll be happy to call home.Ž Here are some tips to help you equip their space: Bedding Since you wont know where that standard dorm-issued mattress has been, encase it in an entomologist lab-tested and recommended bed bug mattress protector, such as those by Allergy Luxe, to protect your mattress from bed bugs and allergens like mold and dust. For support, add a mattress pad and a topper to smooth out the lumps and bumps. The bed is often the fashion focus of a dorm room, so let it reflect your childs personal style. Whether they choose a comforter set or duvet, this years colors and patterns are sure to make a statement. Guys may gravitate towards more simple patterns, such as the rugged blue stripes of Nauticas Knots BayŽ bedding, while ladies may prefer more intricate designs like the purple medallions of the OdessaŽ 11-piece set. Studying Without regular schedules, college students may fall into habits that can compromise their academic success, like sleeping in and being late for class. New gadgets like the iLuv Shake and Wake will wake them from the deepest slumber just in time for class by literally shaking their pillow until they get up. Once theyre up, some thoughtful accessories can help too, such as the eDesk, whose micro-bead pillow and non-skid top make studying easy from the comfort of a bed or futon. Storage There are three rules to help create storage space in a cramped dorm room: hang it, hide it and hold it. Closet space is at a premium, so consider hanging shelves for sweaters or shoes, such as those made by Gearbox. Then, add a double hang closet rod to double the amount of hanging space. Add bed lifts under bed posts to create extra inches of storage space and use under bed bags for off-season clothes, shoes, blankets or towels that arent used every day. For a printable checklist of dorm room necessities, visit the Shop for CollegeŽ tab at www.bedbathandbeyond.com. And after sending off your well-prepared child to college, put up your feet. After all, its time you got some rest -you deserve it.

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.FAMU Basketball Player Stabbed to DeathPolice have arrested Starquineshia Palmer, 20, in the slaying of Shannon Washington, 20, who was a member of the Florida A&M womens basketball team. The stabbing was a result of an argument. Police say the two women apparently were in a relationship. Palmer had went to visit Washington at her apartment home. Both women were in a bathtub together when the argument arose. Palmer told police that Washington tried to choke her while they were in the tub. The fight continued into the bedroom and Palmer said that Washington tried to choke her again. That is when Palmer decided to get a 5-inch steak knife from the kitchen and hid it behind her back. Palmer then called her mother on the phone and said,Sorry. Take care of my kids.Ž Washington knelt down before Palmer and asked, You dont care about your kids?Ž Palmer told police that the question had enraged her, which led her into stabbing Washington in the neck and then her back as she fell forward. Police said Palmer then called her mother again to confess about the murder. When police arrived to the scene, Palmer started screaming, I killed her.Just take me to jail.Ž Palmer was arrested and taken to police headquarters. She confessed in killing Washington, who was a basketball player that recently transferred to Florida A&M University to play for the Rattlers after earning All-American honors in her two seasons at Illinois Valley Community College. She also told police that Washington was pressuring her and insisting that she really kill her before dropping to her knees. Police said that Palmer and Washington have been in a relationship for about three years and they had been making plans to live together. They already have lived together previously and it is not clear how many children Palmer has or where they live. Palmer was charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail. A vigil was also held at FAMU that was an hour long with music, clapping, scriptures from the Bible and a lot of memories of Washington. Starquineshia Palmer Shannon Washington Hitmans Gun Fails Three Times on VictimElijah Thomas III, 54, was accused of attempting to kill someone with the use of a hitman, which was unsuccessful. Thomas had been looking for someone who was willing to participate in killing Chester Ford, 59. Phone conversations were recorded exposing his plans. A detective said Ford was targeted as he was becoming a disruption in Thomas heroin trafficking business. Thomas hired James King to do the killing and decided to set up a meeting with him and Ford. Ford met up with King to purchase drugs from him and King went into Fords car. While Ford started using the drugs he bought, King pulled out a .22-caliber and put it to Fords head. King pulled the trigger up to three times, but the gun didnt fire at all and the two started to fight in the car. Ford managed to get behind the steering wheel and started to speed away. He was also able to throw King out of the car while he was driving, injuring him. King was found lying in the street by police where he was arrested. During court, the recordings of the telephone conversations were revealed. One of the recordings showed Ford and Thomas arguing and threatening each other, which happened after the incident of the failed murder attempt. It was also later revealed that Thomas was upset about King using the .22-caliber handgun instead of the .45-caliber as originally planned. None of this incident would have been known if it werent for the phone recordings as Ford never called the police. Ford was also arrested on drug charges. Thomas was arrested as well for arranging a hitman to kill Ford. He was convicted of attempted first-degree murder and may face life in jail as a career violent offender. Elijah Thomas III

Two have been arrested for the apartment shooting, while the third suspect is still at large. Bing had gone to the apartment complex over a disturbance that was said to have been over a female. Witnesses told police that Clarence Lee Jones, 20, was the first one to pull out a gun and open fire at Bing.

The two men were said to have been in argument at Fords home. Garrett was said to have left and he came back thirty minutes later. Police said Garrett had left to retrieve a gun and when he came back, he shot Ford on his front porch. It is unclear as to what triggered the argument between Ford and Garrett, but witnesses reported that they heard several gunshots. Police found Ford suffering from a gunshot wound and had him transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police were able to locate Garrett the next day, but he had to be restrained for resisting arrest. Garrett was eventually taken into custody and charged with murder. He is being held without bail.

ON THE LOOKOUTPolice Looking for Unidentified Suspects Scamming Elder WomenUnknown black male and female suspects have approached three different elderly females, ages 72, 80, and 83 and identified themselves as bank fraud detectives. They dress nicely and display gold badges. The black male (pictured to the right) accompanied by two other unknown black males told an 83 year old victim that they discovered fraudulent activity on her bank account. They convinced her to go to the bank with them and withdraw a total of $4,683.00 on two separate occasions. In another case, a 72 year old victim was approached by an unknown black female and a black male, who also identified themselves as detectives using gold colored badges, told the victim that an unknown suspect may have hidden money in the house. They asked if they could look at her cash to ensure that it was not stolen. The victim gave them her cash and they fled with an undetermined amount. In yet another case, an 80 year old victim was driven to the bank by a black female and black male suspects, but the victim only completed a balance inquiry. Detectives theorized she did not have any money because they did not have her withdraw any. The suspects showed up at the victims home in an old white SUV. The public needs to be aware that these suspects are targeting elderly women in their residences. These suspects identify themselves as detectives and they compel these victims to go to the bank to make withdraws.

President Obama, in his speech before the Congress and the American public was more forceful than in recent speeches since he took office. He told the members that they must stop the political circus and do something to help the economy. With that said, he offered what he called, The American Job Act, that he said would put more people back to work as he challenged Congress to approve a $447 billion package to revive the job market. The president advised that what he was proposing has been approved, in part by Democrats and Republicans in the past as he emphasized that they can not continue the party voting pattern that has been practiced recently, in an effort to wait until a new president has been elected. The American people and the United States who in the past has been the world leader, must vote on this matter. You must pass this job plan right now, said Mr. Obama. His proposals would provide jobs, cut taxes, make what he calls necessary changes for medicare in a manner that would help. He stated that the plan he is proposing would not be short term. It will put this country back on tract as leaders of the world. The president said that his plan would be for all the people and reminded all of the fact that veterans go to war for us and come back without an ability to take care of their families, go to college, and utilize all of the benefits that veterans in the past, as his grandfather, used to better their lives or their families. He stated that the plan would help small businesses and close some of the loop holes, making tax benefits, beneficial to all rather than just the rich. It would create and keep jobs in America. He wants to see other countries drive American cars, etc. yyy0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqo Nqqmkpi"hqt"ewuvqogtu"vq"rcvtqpk|g"{qwt dwukpguu"qt"wvknk|g"{qwt"ugtxkeguA"Kh"{qw cpuygtgf"[GU."vjgp"{qw"pggf"vq"rnceg"cp"cf kp"Vjg"Hnqtkfc"qt"Igqtikc"Uvct#""ECNN ;261988/::56"vq"rnceg"{qwt"cf"VQFC[## Check, Money Order, Or Credit Cards Accepted PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFCU"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT K P U K F G Opinion-Editorial...........A-2 Church....................A-3 Local-Georgia................B-3 Local-Florida.............B-1 Talk of the Town...............A4 Columns......................B-2 Sports..........................B-4 Crime & Justice..(A).C&J-1-4 Prep Rap............(B).

Vanessa Reid mother of Jeanette Hawkins wants to know and therefore called The Florida Star for help. On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, the bodies of Jeanette Hawkins and Ricardo Ricky Morgan were found in a wooded area off Harper Street and South Myrtle Avenue. JSO says an investigation is ongoing to determine why this couple is dead and who did it. Mrs. Reid, Jeanette s mother, feels that Ricardo Morgan was running from something he was involved in while living in Tampa, Florida. It is reported that Jeanette met Ricardo in Tampa. They got married about five months ago. According to Ms. Reid, family and friends tried to discourage the marriage. Ms. Reid explained to The Florida/Georgia Star that Ricardo stated on several occasions that if Jeanette left him he would kill her and then kill himself. However, Ms. Reid does not believe that happened because both bodies were found burned beyond recognition and indications are they were dumped in the area. Ms. Reid believes a drug deal went bad. Karen Gamble, a friend of Jeanettes family says she also believe something in Ricardos past brought him to Jacksonville and it caught up with him. When asked why or what, Ms. Gamble stated, I dont know. It could be drugs, he could have owned some money or took some money or did somebody harm. Ms. Reid and Ms. Gamble believes the alleged killer was after Ricardo and Jeanette just happened to be there.

Tropical Depression 14 May Soon Be Maria... Another System BrewingState College, Pa. -7 September 2011 -AccuWeather.com reports weather systems from the tropics will continue to pose the threat of heavy rain and flooding problems for the Atlantic Seaboard through midSeptember. Current indications are that at least two more systems have a shot at wandering close enough to the east coast of North America to bring heavy rainfall to troubled areas dealing with flooding. The next two names on the list of tropical cyclones in the 2011 Atlantic season are Maria and Nate. Hurricane and Tropical Weather Coordinator Dan Kottlowski states that an area in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and Tropical Depression 14 in the central Atlantic are concerns. "One or both of the systems has a window of opportunity to reach the Eastern U.S.," Kottlowski said. A system is expected to brew over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico this week in the shadow of parent storm Lee. "Steering flow in the region could allow this feature to wander northeastward this weekend into next week," Kottlowski said. At the same time, steering flow over the central Atlantic could guide T.D. 14 farther west than Katia, perhaps bringing it close to or over the southern Atlantic coast later in the month. There is a risk for two back-to-back rainmakers along the Atlantic Seaboard around the middle of the month. "Given how wet things are or will continue to get this week in the wake of Irene, and then Lee, the worst-case scenario is we have renewed flooding from one or both systems, even without measuring the strength of both features in terms of wind and wave action," Kottlowski added. Irene brought flooding to parts of the Northeast. Lee has flooded part of the Southeast and will bring flooding to part of the Northeast. Even in the wake of both systems, streams and rivers will remain high, setting the stage for more trouble with flooding if any tropical system wanders nearby. Even though Katia will likely re-curve well to the east of the Atlantic Seaboard, this does not mean that people in the same area should let their guard down for the balance of the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season. The overall weakness in the Bermuda High that developed in mid-August remains.

Simpson First African American Inducted Into The Florida Press Hall Of Fame By Dr. Dan Collins Just like the day when President Kennedy was assassinated, everybody remembers exactly what they were doing when those four hijacked planes snuffed out nearly 3,000 lives on September 11, 2001. It was personal. In the initial seconds, there was confusion. Perhaps, it was just a tragic accident. But as the morning of 9/11 unfolded, it became crystal clear. This was no accident. It was terrorism cold and calculated. Emotionally, there is a big difference between falling down the steps and being pushed down the steps. Collectively, we were all "pushed down the steps". Intention makes all of the difference in the world. Our psychological injury from 9/11 comes, in large part, because it was the terrorists' plan to harm us. Defiantly, we have survived. But personally and culturally we would never be the same. We were unavoidably changed: scarred, dazed, traumatized. Psychological and emotional trauma leaves an indelible mark. It alters the way we see things. Trauma changes the way we take in the world. Here are a couple of the key ways that the overwhelming stress of September 11 continue to affect us: 1. Can't Balance Your Emotions Ten years after the initial attack, we may still find we may find ourselves experiencing moments of what I call the four useless emotions of trauma: panic, worry, rage, or despair when confronted with information related to 9/11. These emotional responses are useless because they never help us to identify helpful ways of handling our reactions to what happened on that fateful day in a balanced and rational way. Instead, trauma puts us on edge and prompts us to over-react. Specific to September 11, another emotion that surfaces is an irrational fear of people of the Islamic faith tradition because the terrorists claimed to be Muslim. We may also take the emotional extreme of being so affected by our feelings about 9/11 that we hit the "emotional off switch" and numb out. We can tell when this happens when someone detaches to such a degree that they seem to not care. Taking Our Power back We take our power back by taking away the terrorist's greatest weapon: fear. We can choose our emotions. Instead of fear, we can choose compassion, keeping us connected with the best in us and others. We can even use anger effectively. While rage is an out-of-control emotion, anger can be effective when used to affirm a boundary which says, "I won't tolerate being violated with aggression". We can also choose determination, an emotion which enables us to keep moving forward in a positive direction. We can choose to not remain bottled up with toxic emotions. We can identify responses that work, like not taking the "hate bait". We can be wise enough to not confuse the distorted perspective of terrorists with anything remotely resembling the nobility of devout faith. True faith replenishes life. 2. Can't Tell Time When people have been overwhelmed by trauma, they tend to live in the past. Some people have a hard time getting over what happened to them regarding 9/11 because they keep re-experiencing their pain through nightmares, flashbacks and intrusive thoughts. Think of 9/11 nightmares and flashbacks as "instant replays" of our trauma. Intrusive thoughts occur as we are engaged in almost any activity and our mind "changes the channel" to something 9/11 related. Taking Our Power Back We take our power back by realizing that the way out of trauma is living in the present. Trauma confuses the past with the present. We can heal powerfully, as we acknowledge the tragedy of September 11th, but give new life to ourselves as we affirm that 9/11/01 is over and September 11th 2011 is a new day with a whole new story and we get to write it!

A4 C M Y KPAGE A-4 THE STAR SEPTEMBER 10, 2011 E kaabo (pronounced eh-kah-bow). Welcome. Summer themes continue. If you read my column last week, youll recall that the theme was about noteworthy summer events from the files, which we want to make sure appear on these pages, because, after all they were the TALK OF THE TOWN! The lovely photographs appearing in the September 3 article about the Belles of Summer were submitted by friends and family of the Debutantes of the 2011 Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Coterie. Just Because the President is BLACK by historic observer Miss Mary, is a delightful, tell it like it is book by former Jacksonville resident, Mary (Bonner) Marks). In her first foray into writing Miss Mary, as she prefers to be called because she is an old black woman, talks in a witty, conversational tone, sometimes tinged with emotion, as she opines about the harsh treatment of the first AfricanAmerican President and the need for all Americans to unify and get their majority back. If her observations sound familiar, its because many of us have had similar conversations around the dinner table with family and friends, in beauty parlors and barber shops. Thank you, Miss Mary, for being our voice in this masterful work! Mary Bonner Marks is the youngest daughter of Killis K. B. and Ruth Bonner. She attended local schools, Northwestern Junior High School and Stanton Senior High School (Class of 1963). She graduated in 1967 from Fisk University in Nashville Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Miss Mary retired in 2006, from the Veterans Administration Hospital in Miami, Florida as a Supervisor of Microbiology in the Clinical Laboratory. She was also a part-time instructor in Anatomy and Physiology at Miami-Dade Community College. Marks and her husband Richard have two children, Kimberly Carter and Killis Marks and two grandchildren, Sainseeray and Richard Carter. Miss Mary currently resides in Miami, Florida. Just Because the President is Black is available online at Trafford Publishing (trafford.com), Amazon.com, and Barnes and Noble (BN.com).

SEPTEMBER 10, 2011 THE STAR PAGE A-7 Around the Area Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown Walk of the Brooklyn Community Photos by Wesley H. Lester/City of Jacksonville Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, along with Donald Foy of MAD DADS and officers of the area, recently visited the Brooklyn community of Jacksonville. They had a moment of prayer and visited with residents in the community, listening to their views and concerns of the area. The Brooklyn Community and Park History: Brooklyn Park is located in the Brooklyn section of Jacksonville. For several years after the Civil War, a garrison of both black and white Union soldiers were stationed in Brooklyn. Some of the black soldiers remained or returned to live in the area, and were joined by former slaves, making the northwestern section of Brooklyn a black residential community. Brooklyn was platted in 1868. The City purchased the park property in 1971 and created the park soon thereafter. Over the years, the Brooklyn Neighborhood Association has strived to improve the aging community, with much help from the Riverside Presbyterian Church and the Citys recent redevelopment projects. Mayor Stresses Need for Public-Private Partnership As part of a breakfast meeting with the San Marco Rotary Tuesday, Mayor Alvin Brown stressed the idea of public-private partnerships to make Jacksonville a more successful city. The mayor is developing nine advisory councils to partner community and business leaders with City Hall. His objective is to acquire the best policy-setting information in areas like education, business development and military affairs. The private sector is the engine of any community. Government isnt. Government can be a catalyst for change. It can foster good will. It can create an environment that says we are open for business, said Mayor Brown. It makes good business sense to tap into the best and the brightest that our city has to offer. We have to work with every key stakeholder to take Jacksonville to the next level. In recent weeks, the mayor has seen the benefits of publicprivate partnerships as more than $200,000 in donations came in to save the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps at four Duval County public high schools. More than $400,000 was raised in separate drives to save golf, tennis, cross-country and middle school football. The Tuesday breakfast was part of a series of talks Mayor Brown is giving to explain his vision for the City of Jacksonville.

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2 THE STAR SEPTEMBER 10, 2011 LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT: Paul and Cathy married when he was 55 and she was 25. She had one child; he had none. They saved and invested for the future. When he was 63, she bought additional life insurance on his life because she was concerned about her security. When he turned 70, (she was 40), she started to consider whether to put him in a nursing home or quit her job and care for him at home when he got sick. But she failed to consider that when he was 73, she would be the one who spent 3 months in a hospital and died at 43. RESULT: Now at 75 with no children, and his beneficiary deceased, Pauls only stress in life is who will benefit from all that life insurance. He has slight dementia, but says he is looking for a new young wife. He might just find one..or one just might find him!

School was out for two weeks for spud harvest, and everyone had lots to do. We were loading hay into the loft of our barn when the message came. The Paul family had been in an accident. Mrs. Paul and the children had been visiting relatives in Salt Lake City when the accident occurred. Many of the family were in critical condition. Mr. Paul dropped everything and headed to Utah, to the hospital, asking us if we could feed his cattle while he was gone. We wondered if there wasnt more we could do. We knew they still had potatoes to dig, as well as some late season hay that was sitting in the field. We didnt have potato equipment, but I could work hay. Dad said that he would handle the chores so that I could help out. I loaded our hay piler onto our truck and headed on my way, not knowing who I would get to drive for me. I neednt have worried. As I pulled onto the Paul farm, cars were coming from every direction. Potato diggers, trucks, and every other imaginable piece of equipment rumbled down the road. A real estate agent volunteered to drive as I stacked the bales coming up the side of the truck. Other trucks poured onto the field, and, shortly after dark, the hay was all safely in the barn. A group of men helped me feed the cows before we retired for the night. The next day, at dawn, I was back to share Mr. Pauls instructions with a whole crew of neighbors who were there to help with the feeding. After the sun warmed the air enough, the half dozen or so diggers started again to roll through the fields. I took the job of forking away the debris piling up along the edges of the conveyor belt in one cellar. When I would finish, I would take my place picking through the potatoes. Standing by me on one side was a banker, on the other side was a school teacher. There were men from the sawmill, businessmen, secretaries, and people from every walk of life, as well as fellow teenagers. There were so many people and so much equipment that the biggest problem was trying to keep out of each others way. In fact, we exceeded the capacity of the cellars equipment to store them, so some diggers were sent on to other jobs. The variety of personalities in the cellar made for interesting stories. Some of the characters there were rough and some were highly refined, but I learned that each persons heart was much the same. Some didnt even know the Pauls, but came to help, overcome by thought of what it would feel like if the tragedy were their own. In short order the harvest was in and the machinery moved back to the farms from whence it had come. Many went home to harvest their own fields, for they had chosen to help a neighbor first. It was late at night, while our small group was finishing the feeding, when the lights from a car turned into the driveway. Mr. Paul emerged and approached us to thank us for our work. Hows the family? someone asked. Mr. Paul looked down in discouragement. Not well, but some other relatives came so I could come home and try to get the harvest in. Another member of our group put his hand on Mr. Pauls shoulder. Perhaps you should look in the cellar. As Mr. Paul stepped into the cellar and flipped the switch, shining the lights on the huge mounds of potatoes, this tough man with work-roughened hands started to sob. The kind neighbor added, You go back to your family. Alls well here. Now, more than a quarter century later, I still see these selfless acts of kindness occurring. And as long as I do, I know those words, embedded deep in my heart, will still echo true. Alls well here.

It is one thing to deal with a deadly enemy that you can see, size up and understand. It is another when that enemy is an unknown microscopic virus that is threatening to wipe out humanity if it is not contained. Thus is the situation in the new Warner Bros. Pictures film Contagion. Laurence Fishburne plays the role of Dr. Ellis Cheever, Deputy Director of the Center For Disease Control and Prevention who heads a team of researchers who mobilize to break the code of a unique biological pathogen as it continues to mutate worldwide. This film is particularly scary in that this could actually happen. It also hits a little too close to home with the fact that the public would be misled causing panic and chaos everywhere. Fishburne has compiled an impressive body of stage, TV and film work since his debut at age 10 starring on One Life To Live and his first feature film at age 12 Cornbread, Earl and Me. When asked to describe his character, Fishburne says, This is probably his first real big assignment in terms of dealing with an infectious disease like this one. Hes a smart and confident guy. Hes really the voice of reason in all of this. Hes the guy that you look to whose going to tell you that everything is going to be fine. We are in control of the situation and have the best people working on it to figure out what it is and we are going to contain it. Were going to find a protocol by which to create a vaccine to make sure that this thing does a little damage as possible. So hes really sort of the still calm voice throughout the picture. Hes the person that you want to look to for reassurance that its going to be OK. At one point in the film, Dr. Cheever calls his fianc (played by Sanaa Lathan), and tells her to get out of Chicago because the infection is seriously loose in town but that is classified information that he wasnt supposed to give out even to his own wife. Fishburne chuckles at that fact that in real life people do what they have to do to protect their love ones. He states, As the head of the CDC, he has a responsibility and an obligation to keep this information from going out. But as a human being, as a man who has an obligation to protect his family, he is conflicted and he makes a choice. To make sure the movie was medically accurate, experts in the filed of infectious medicine were brought on board as technical advisors. Fishburne was particularly impress with his on set mentor W. Ian Lipkin, MD, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University and a professor of epidemiology, neurology and pathology. Once I talked to Dr. Lipkin who had real strong opinions about how all to this should sort of play out. He was with us everyday and he is really committed to what he does. We would be working and he would pull out his phone and say let me show you this. And it would be something that could potentially be an outbreak. So the stakes for what he does is always here. Were there any particular aspects of this film that Fishbone personally enjoyed? He lights up again, I love the size of it. I love the international scope of it, that it takes place in so many different parts of the world. Some happen to be my favorite parts of the world. Its global and there is something about that that appeals to me. When he first read the script Fishburne said, I was kind of blown away by how smart it was. Theres a lot of what is being made now is kind of stupid. I was honored to asked to be a part of it because it is a smart movie. When asked if his germ phobia has increased or decreased after making this movie? Fishburne laughs, Im aint afraid of germs man and I aint afraid of getting sick. Dying --well thats some other s**t!

Screenplay by Scott Z. Burns. Produced by Michael Shamberg, Stacey Sher and Gregory Jacobs. The scary thing about this movie is that it could actually happen in real life. With all of the superstar actors in the cast, one might think a bunch of egos would clash but they make every character come alive. There is no action and the pace is real slow with people getting sick and the psychological head trippin that goes with mass hysteria. This is more of an intellectual film. If that is not your cup-of-tea, save this one for cable. Tanner Hall. Anchor Bay Films. Starring Chris Kattan, Amy Sedaris, Tom Everett Scott, Rooney Mara and Brie Layson. Written, directed and produced by Francesca Gregorini and Tatiana Von Forstenberg. Produced by Julie Syder. Several girls combine to make a very dull boarding school drama. It is hard to figure out which one is supposed to be the good or the bad girl. The teacher has a sexual malfunction problem while another school girl is sleeping with a married man. The pace is way to slow and what was even the point of this movie? This one will put you to sleep quickly on late night cable. Hit me up at feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net Study, Observe and Win!

SEPTEMBER 10, 2011 THE STAR PR 1 P P R R E E P P R R A A P P Y Y o o u u t t h h S S e e c c t t i i o o n n Mom Who Sent Kids to Wrong School Has Charges Reduced to MisdemeanorsThe governor on Wednesday reduced the charges against a woman jailed for using her fathers address to enroll her children in a neighboring school district, saying the penalty didnt fit the crime. Kelley Williams-Bolar, of Akron, served nine days in jail earlier this year for falsifying information on records that she used to send her daughters to Copley-Fairlawn schools. She said her conviction on two felony records tampering counts had threatened her efforts to earn her teachers license. Gov. John Kasich agreed, reducing the convictions to two misdemeanors. When I first heard about this situation, it seemed to me that the penalty was excessive for the offense, the governor said in a statement. In addition, the penalty could exclude her from certain economic opportunities for the rest of her life. But the governors action also came with a warning. No one should interpret this as a pass its a second chance, Kasich said. Kasich is requiring Williams-Bolar to report for probation, serve 80 hours of community service, work full time, not take any drugs or drink alcohol and pay the cost of her prosecution. Kasichs order was a rare departure from the recommendation of the Ohio Parole Board, which said unanimously last week that Kasich should leave Williams-Bolars conviction in place. Her attorney on Wednesday praised Kasich for bucking the board. Six-Year-Old Author LaNiyah Bailey, An Anti-Bullying AdvocateLaNiyah Bailey is a 6 year old author with a message for children like her just because you are bigger than other kid, that doesnt mean that people have the right to bully you. In her debut book, Not FAT Because I Wanna Be LaNiyah details the struggle of Jessica, a fictional girl who has an underlying medical issue that causes her to gain weight. Bullied by her peers, Jessica learns to accept her body and eventually opens up about her condition to her classmates. LaNiyah is not only speaking to other children through her book, but has become an advocate for anti bullying organizations. With a message that words can hurt and that not all weight gain is due to an unhealthy lifestyle, LaNiyah hopes her book will enlighten and entertain her young readers. I just wish this book can help other kids like meand I wish it can help people see that [even though] you might be big that you are not unhealthy or a monster like people may make you feel. DID YOU KNOW? Grandparents Day Is Coming! (SPM Wire) Its only been in existence in America since 1978, but National Grandparents Day has been increasing in popularity each year. This year it will be celebrated on September 11 by families nationwide. The holiday was founded by Marian McQuade, a housewife in West Virginia who was motivated by a desire to educate young people about the important historical contributions made by seniors. She also sought to come to the aid of lonely seniors in nursing homes. In a fitting tribute, the official flower for Grandparents Day is the Forget-me-not! Interestingly, the first Grandmothers Day is said to have been cel ebrated in Poland in 1964.

SEPTEMBER 10, 2011 PREP RAP PR 2 What Happened On 9-11 (for Kids) The September 11th Attack on AmericaOn September 11, 2001, there was an attack on America. There are some men that decided that they didnt like what America stands for: freedom, liberty, and the rights of men and women of all races, backgrounds, and beliefs. So on the morning of September 11, 2001, they hijacked four planes and attacked America in a terrible way. Two of the airplanes were crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City. The third plane was crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The last plane was going to crash into another building in Washington, D.C., but the passengers stopped the hijackers, and the plane crashed into a field instead. Thousands of people lost their lives through these attacks. Hundreds of people were on the planes. Thousands died in the buildings that were hit by those planes. The men that arranged this terrible attack want Americans to feel afraid and disorganized. They want to make people who live in this country do what they say by threatening us. Basically theyre big bullies. The people of the United States are a strong group of people. Keep faith in who you are and what our country stands for and we will become even stronger than before. Classbrain.comFAMILY & PARENTING How To Choose Mobile Devices For Your Family(StatePoint) A mobile device is a very personal thing. Whether its a laptop, tablet or smartphone youre looking for, its best not to take a one-size fits all approach. What works for you may not be right for your teen or spouse. Before making a selection, there are a few factors to take into consideration, including size, operating system, design, intended use and feature set. Mobile technology devices are pervasive in our lives. Theyre our digital companions, says Li Jun, Senior Vice President, Product Group at Lenovo. Whether your priority is entertainment, business, security or productivity, a little research can help you find the device that best suits your needs. To get started, consider which profile best fits you: The Student Since students are very active, size matters. But with note-taking and reading a top priority, you dont want to select a mobile device thats too small. Since the device will need to go to class, study sessions and even parties, a tablet is an ideal compromise. New tablet devices weigh less than two pounds, in many cases, and come preloaded with student-friendly apps like Amazons Kindle eBook reader. The Online Socialite Are you always updating your status message? Cant enter a restaurant without checking in? If your mobile device is your BFF, a device with a onestop social connection and multi-tasking interface will save on battery life and leave more time for keeping up with friends and family. The Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1, for example, offers a Social Touch app that aggregates your favorite networking sites like Twitter and Facebook with your calendar and email. It also offers a front and rear camera for face-to-face networking. The Professional Do you frequently travel or meet with clients? If so, you should consider things like aesthetics, speed and functionality when choosing a device. Business-focused devices should offer features like a full-sized USB drive and SD card reader for easily transferring files between meetings, or the ability to connect presentations to an external monitor, conduct video conferences and keep your business chugging. For example, the ThinkPad Tablet comes with a corporate-friendly application that allows IT administrators to manage multiple devices remotely. Of course your business wouldnt buy file cabinets with broken locks. Youll need the same security for your digital data. Make sure your device comes with anti-theft software, which disables it if it is lost or stolen. For more on finding the right combination of function and security, and to browse different mobile devices, visit http://shop.lenovo.com. In todays connected world, a mobile device suited to your needs is essential no matter what you do for fun or money.

LIVINGGet Your Child Ready For College (StatePoint) After years of living under your roof, its finally time for your child to head off to college to live an independent life. While you cant put tracking devices on them to account for their every move, you can make sure your students are prepared with the essentials they will need to survive the next four years. Dorm rooms are pretty basic, says Rachael Risinger, Bed Bath & Beyond spokesperson. Four white walls, a bed, and if theyre lucky, a desk and chair. But, with some basic dorm room accessories its easy to create a space theyll be happy to call home. Here are some tips to help you equip their space: Bedding Since you wont know where that standard dorm-issued mattress has been, encase it in an entomologist lab-tested and recommended bed bug mattress protector, such as those by Allergy Luxe, to protect your mattress from bed bugs and allergens like mold and dust. For support, add a mattress pad and a topper to smooth out the lumps and bumps. The bed is often the fashion focus of a dorm room, so let it reflect your childs personal style. Whether they choose a comforter set or duvet, this years colors and patterns are sure to make a statement. Guys may gravitate towards more simple patterns, such as the rugged blue stripes of Nauticas Knots Bay bedding, while ladies may prefer more intricate designs like the purple medallions of the Odessa 11-piece set. Studying Without regular schedules, college students may fall into habits that can compromise their academic success, like sleeping in and being late for class. New gadgets like the iLuv Shake and Wake will wake them from the deepest slumber just in time for class by literally shaking their pillow until they get up. Once theyre up, some thoughtful accessories can help too, such as the eDesk, whose micro-bead pillow and non-skid top make studying easy from the comfort of a bed or futon. Storage There are three rules to help create storage space in a cramped dorm room: hang it, hide it and hold it. Closet space is at a premium, so consider hanging shelves for sweaters or shoes, such as those made by Gearbox. Then, add a double hang closet rod to double the amount of hanging space. Add bed lifts under bed posts to create extra inches of storage space and use under bed bags for off-season clothes, shoes, blankets or towels that arent used every day. For a printable checklist of dorm room necessities, visit the Shop for College tab at www.bedbathandbeyond.com. And after sending off your well-prepared child to college, put up your feet. After all, its time you got some rest -you deserve it.

C&J1 C M Y K Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia StarSEPTEMBER 10 2011 THE STAR C&J 1 As an African American newspaper, we basically report on offenses committed by African Americans. Please note that in our observations, weekly reports show that African Americans DO NOT commit the largest percentage of criminal offenses in this area.FAMU Basketball Player Stabbed to DeathPolice have arrested Starquineshia Palmer, 20, in the slaying of Shannon Washington, 20, who was a member of the Florida A&M womens basketball team. The stabbing was a result of an argument. Police say the two women apparently were in a relationship. Palmer had went to visit Washington at her apartment home. Both women were in a bathtub together when the argument arose. Palmer told police that Washington tried to choke her while they were in the tub. The fight continued into the bedroom and Palmer said that Washington tried to choke her again. That is when Palmer decided to get a 5-inch steak knife from the kitchen and hid it behind her back. Palmer then called her mother on the phone and said,Sorry. Take care of my kids. Washington knelt down before Palmer and asked, You dont care about your kids? Palmer told police that the question had enraged her, which led her into stabbing Washington in the neck and then her back as she fell forward. Police said Palmer then called her mother again to confess about the murder. When police arrived to the scene, Palmer started screaming, I killed her.Just take me to jail. Palmer was arrested and taken to police headquarters. She confessed in killing Washington, who was a basketball player that recently transferred to Florida A&M University to play for the Rattlers after earning All-American honors in her two seasons at Illinois Valley Community College. She also told police that Washington was pressuring her and insisting that she really kill her before dropping to her knees. Police said that Palmer and Washington have been in a relationship for about three years and they had been making plans to live together. They already have lived together previously and it is not clear how many children Palmer has or where they live. Palmer was charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail. A vigil was also held at FAMU that was an hour long with music, clapping, scriptures from the Bible and a lot of memories of Washington. Starquineshia Palmer Shannon Washington Hitmans Gun Fails Three Times on VictimElijah Thomas III, 54, was accused of attempting to kill someone with the use of a hitman, which was unsuccessful. Thomas had been looking for someone who was willing to participate in killing Chester Ford, 59. Phone conversations were recorded exposing his plans. A detective said Ford was targeted as he was becoming a disruption in Thomas heroin trafficking business. Thomas hired James King to do the killing and decided to set up a meeting with him and Ford. Ford met up with King to purchase drugs from him and King went into Fords car. While Ford started using the drugs he bought, King pulled out a .22-caliber and put it to Fords head. King pulled the trigger up to three times, but the gun didnt fire at all and the two started to fight in the car. Ford managed to get behind the steering wheel and started to speed away. He was also able to throw King out of the car while he was driving, injuring him. King was found lying in the street by police where he was arrested. During court, the recordings of the telephone conversations were revealed. One of the recordings showed Ford and Thomas arguing and threatening each other, which happened after the incident of the failed murder attempt. It was also later revealed that Thomas was upset about King using the .22-caliber handgun instead of the .45-caliber as originally planned. None of this incident would have been known if it werent for the phone recordings as Ford never called the police. Ford was also arrested on drug charges. Thomas was arrested as well for arranging a hitman to kill Ford. He was convicted of attempted first-degree murder and may face life in jail as a career violent offender. Elijah Thomas III

Police were able to locate Garrett the next day, but he had to be restrained for resisting arrest. Garrett was eventually taken into custody and charged with murder. He is being held without bail.

ON THE LOOKOUTPolice Looking for Unidentified Suspects Scamming Elder WomenUnknown black male and female suspects have approached three different elderly females, ages 72, 80, and 83 and identified themselves as bank fraud detectives. They dress nicely and display gold badges. The black male (pictured to the right) accompanied by two other unknown black males told an 83 year old victim that they discovered fraudulent activity on her bank account. They convinced her to go to the bank with them and withdraw a total of $4,683.00 on two separate occasions. In another case, a 72 year old victim was approached by an unknown black female and a black male, who also identified themselves as detectives using gold colored badges, told the victim that an unknown suspect may have hidden money in the house. They asked if they could look at her cash to ensure that it was not stolen. The victim gave them her cash and they fled with an undetermined amount. In yet another case, an 80 year old victim was driven to the bank by a black female and black male suspects, but the victim only completed a balance inquiry. Detectives theorized she did not have any money because they did not have her withdraw any. The suspects showed up at the victims home in an old white SUV. The public needs to be aware that these suspects are targeting elderly women in their residences. These suspects identify themselves as detectives and they compel these victims to go to the bank to make withdraws.
