The couple has been selling fruits and vegetables at the corner for more than twenty years. Both were struck by the car. A man who came to their aide said that Papi was laying on top of Mami. He had to move him off of her and once he did, he realized that she was no longer breathing. Her husband has broken bones and his pelvis has been shattered. He also has a punctured lung. The driver was also elderly and it has been reported that he had a heart attack, which caused him to lose control. He too was hospitalized. \gvc Egngdtcvgu 82"[gctuUgg"Rtgr"Tcr Members of Fishers of Men World Harvest Church, Brunswick, Georgia are disturbed that a report regarding a house and their former choir director. names Marcellous Dunbar as their pastor. He is not! According to reports, Dunbar has taken residence at an Orange Park, Florida property, and placed furniture in the house that he has not purchased but filed an adverse possession document for the property. He stated, according to reports, that this is his way of cleaning up homelessness in Jacksonville. The house was purchased and closing was completed last week. The new owners then had the property cleaned and utilities turned on. It appears that Dunbar filed his document on the same day the new owners closed their loan for the $440,000 they agreed to pay for the house, which had an appraisal amount of nearly $l million. The new buyers said they will be arriving in Jacksonville early next week and expect Dunbar to be gone by that time. The Clay County Sheriffs Office said they are investigating the trespassing claims. Dunbar says his occupation of the property is legal under Florida law. It is difficult to handle when you learn that a 22-year-old died because a 23-year-old neighbor forgot to turn off his car when he parked it in the garage. Andrew Grywalski said he was not distracted, he had not consumed any drugs or alcohol when he pulled into his garage driving his 2011 Mazda 3. He has just finished an art class, went to have dinner with his dad and thought he had turned off his motor. However, the car runs very quietly and he accidentally left the keys in the ignition, over night. Several hours later, he noticed a smell and reported it to the maintenance department. The next morning the smell was worse. Other tenants reported the odor and went to the hospital. Rebecca slept through the smell and to her death. She was from Jacksonville, a graduate of Forrest High, Class of 2006.

He would be receiving a full scholarship to attend school. On top of that, the Arizona Cardinals offered him more than $1 million a season to get him to change his mind. Wright responded that he will continue his dream. He had spent seven seasons in the NFL but he feels strongly about his goal of working with inner city youth. With President Obama pushing hard for jobs, the ultra conservative billionaires, the Koch brothers, who have been major contributors to such organizations as the Tea Party and other conservative movements, and the owners of Georgia-Pacific, one of the largest companies in the world, just announced that it is closing its Hawthorne Plywood Mill, leaving almost 400 without a job. Many of the workers were shocked by the closure as they have worked for the company most of their lives. The company said they are closing the division because of the weak demand for home building and remodeling. Production will cease October 14.

Richard P. Burton, Sr., Director PROJECT R.E.A.C.H., INC. VOICELESS LEADERSMany times in the past we have written and spoken about poverty and disparities within the criminal/juvenile justice system and the prison industrial complex. Also, we have reached out to leaders, asking that they advocate against the cruel and inhumane treatments within the prison industrial complex and conditions that often fuel this system, such as poverty, racism, the war on drugs, sentencing guidelines/disparities, three strikes, and mandatory minimum laws. However, the lips of many leaders have remained tight and voices silent, as it relates to the horrific conditions surrounding the criminal/juvenile justice system, a system which continue to plague many African American, Hispanic and poor communities throughout the United States. The war around the War on Drugs is a battle between public health and criminal justice. Its a battle between conservatives calling for imprisonment and progressives calling for public health solutions. Its the legacy of Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, Nelson Rockefeller, and others who used the fear of crime to build campaigns around law and order. Over the last several decades the war on drugs has diminished many of the civil and human rights gains of the past. Billions of dollars are spent yearly on criminal justice, including the building of private and mega prisons and jails, while at the same time, inner city schools are failing and falling apart. It would seem that the case for reducing incarceration rates could not be stronger, especially with the political debates to cut our national debts/budgets. However, many groups have vested interest in keeping prisons as full as possible the private prison corporations, their shareholders and those that continue to suppress the vote. According to a report by the Justice Policy Institute, the U.S.'s two largest private prison companies, Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and GEO Group, pocketed collective annual revenues of 2.9 billion dollars at the close of 2010. The report states, "While private prison companies may try to present themselves as just meeting existing demand for prison beds and responding to current market conditions, in fact, they have worked hard over the past decade to create markets for their product. As revenues of private prison companies have grown over the past decade, the companies have had more resources with which to build political power, and they have used this power to promote policies that lead to higher rates of incarceration. Might I suggest to the readers of this message that you lift your voice and demand your religious, civil rights, political and community leaders to advocate for liberty and justice for all and to become pro active and not reactionary.

A4 C M Y KPAGE A-4THE STARSEPTEMBER 24, 2011 E kaabo (pronounced eh-kah-bow) Welcome. It Was the Party No One Wanted to Miss!As a real life Army wife, my cousin, Barbara Breaker, mastered the art of moving households and all that it entails (the never-ending packing, directing movers, praying that if something breaks, let it be that old, generic gargle glass that was bought in Pic n Save, the never-ending unpacking) with three, then four, children in tow between continents, and across the U.S. Barbaras stories of these adventures make it sound so effortless. Plan, pack, move, and unpack. From these experiences, her children … Aimee, Imani, Toure, and Danny, adults with their own families and careers … learned well how to plan, pack, move, and unpack. Each has moved across several states, with at least two doing the transcontinental hop! I said all that to say, it doesnt take long for this family to broach an idea and put it into action. It happened last week, when daughter Imani Breaker flew home from NYC to plan a fish fry in honor of her moms birthday! Family and friends gathered on the wraparound porch of Breaker Manor, Barbara and husband Ronalds sprawling Springfield home, for a spread of fried fish, shrimp, and hushpuppies, macaroni salad, potato salad, baked beans, cole slaw, and grits. Did I forget anything? Oh yes, Aimee Breaker Roysters delicious Chocolate Malted Whopper Cookies, a decadent raspberry cream birthday cake, and vanilla ice cream. There was beer and a variety of nice wines. As a matter of fact, we drank enough bottles of wine to amply give life to Barbaras newly sproutedŽ bottle tree! The impromptu gathering of family and friends, included: daughters Imani Breaker and Aimee Breaker Royster of Navarre, Florida (hubby Gary and their teenage daughter, Alaina did not make the trip this time); granddaughter Kyra Royster; cousins James Burroughs, Toni Owens, Jimmy McCoy, Geri and Jacqueline Jennings; nephew Dwayne Breaker, his wife, Ana Kamiar and adorable son, Azavi; friends Marilyn Williams, LaConnetta Weston, Pat George, Mel and Brenda Bellard-Harris, Roz Burrough, Mary Jones, Arthur and Artis Walker, Vicki and William Hamilton, and Volume and Ok Sun Burks; and yours truly. After contributing one last bottle to the Bottle Tree of Breaker Manor, Barbara, Ok Sun, and I (the last ones standing) declared the party over at 3:00 a.m. It was a FANTABULOUS time and bears the honor of being THE TALK OF THE TOWN!Feeding Dreams Initiative Honors Everyday MomsBetty Burney Saluted as First Honoree(The following article and photographs furnished by SMSi Urban Call Marketing. The article has been edited due to space constraints.) At the Feeding Dreams Kick-Off breakfast, Betty Burney, mother of two and founder of Education Star Corporation was honored and saluted as the first Jacksonville Feeding Dreams Outstanding Mom for 2011-2012. This initiative recognizes African American moms who do whatever it takes to feed the dreams and improve the lives of their families and communities,Ž said Lafayette Jones, President and CEO, SMSi Urban Call Marketing. Feeding Dreams is sponsored by General Mills. Burneys Im A Star FoundationŽ empowers youth with knowledge and resources that enable them to transcend barriers to success and unleash their inner greatness. Burney also serves as vice chair of the Duval County School Board. The breakfast served as the launch to the Feeding Dreams Get Together initiative. General Mills launched Feeding Dreams Get Togethers, a grassroots initiative to provide intimate forums in communities across Jacksonville to discuss efforts to positively impact health and education in African-American communities. At each get together, a mom will be honored and saluted for her dedication and perseverance to her family and community. In appreciation for her efforts, each recognized mother will receive a Feeding Dreams tote bag, a certificate of appreciation and certificate for 500 Box Tops For Education. The honoree can donate the BTFE to the school of her choice, which will help the school purchase needed educational supplies. The Help and Nippers Beach Grille. A few weeks ago, Volume, Ok Sun, and daughter Chloe invited me out for a movie and dinner. We saw The Help, which we agreed was an interesting portrayal of an untold story of African American existence in this country. The acting was outstanding and, IMHO (in my humble opinion), deserves several nods for the Academy Award. Ive read stating that African Americans should be insulted by the movie, especially if Viola Davis and/or Octavia Spencer, the main African American actors who portrayed maids, are nominated for Oscars. Frankly, its a story thats never been told in quite this way and gives voice to the hundreds of women who cared for hundreds of families as depicted in the movie. Besides, the sistahs got the last laugh (think chocolate pie). I give it three fist bumps and a high five! BTW, after the movie, we had dinner at Nippers Beach Grille, the Jacksonville Beach restaurant opened by Top Chef D.C. contestant, Executive Chef Kenny Gilbert (Im a big fan of the show and The BeastŽ, which he called himself on the show). It does a bustling business which features relaxed indoor and outdoor dining. It is popular with boaters who dock at the marina adjacent to the restaurant. Guests with reservations are accommodated in an indoor dining room with ceiling to floor windows providing views of the Intercoastal and docked, luxury watercrafts. This room also gives some diners a peek into the kitchen where Chef Kenny and his staff work their magic preparing delectable cuisine described as having Southern, International, and Caribbean influences.Ž As you head east toward the beach, Nippers Beach Grille is located on the north side of Beach Boulevard, just across the Intercoastal Waterway.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.„Broadway performer Roslyn Burrough, normally high-energy and upbeat, finishes a phone call with an extrawide grin. I feel so blessed, I feel so blessed, I feel soooo blessed!Ž she says, practically screaming with delight. Thats another one whos just signed on. Were getting ready! We will be there!Ž The weŽ Burrough is referring to is herself and a group of about 50 fans, a comfortable busload, she has begun organizing locally in Jacksonville. ThereŽ is Harlem, New York, home of the landmark St. James Presbyterian Church, one of the oldest African American congregations in the community„116 years strong„and for decades the spiritual mooring for many noteworthy African American performing artists, whether living in town or just passing through. A dwindled, cash-strapped congregation has been hard pressed to keep up with the cost of maintaining and repairing the neoGothic structure. Hurricane Irene was an ill wind and drench-ing rain that served as a reminder that repairs are long overdue. Burrough and about 20 other African American singers, actors and musicians, all of whom have been in major productions nationally and internationally, are heeding the churchs call for help. Theyre in all-handson-deck mode, planning to raise money the best way they know how„with their God-given talents in a rollicking revue titled A Matinee In Harlem.Ž Weve always done fund-raising concerts for the church, but the one were doing on Oct. 22 is extra-extra special because the need is so great,Ž says Burrough, a Broadway veteran whose wellknown alter ego, Auntie Roz,Ž drives the Auntie Roz Childrens Workshop, a tiered series of programs that uses the performing arts to encourage literacy, good study habits and personal responsibility in children and young adults. We all love this church. It has been a vital presence in the community, and now it really needs our help. Were getting ready to make some joyful noise.Ž Friends of Auntie Roz Childrens Workshop Inc., loyal fans who have followed Burroughs career and her tireless work and advocacy in behalf of children, has organized a bus tour to New York for anyone wanting to attend the Harlem concert as an expression of support„both for the church and the starstudded cast of the Broadway-style production. Shes a hometown girl, born and raised, and shes done so much for us in Jacksonville,Ž says Deborah Bell, who is coordinating the tour. At the concert, we want Jacksonville to be present and accounted for.Ž Priced affordably, the tour package includes a ticket to the show; two overnight hotel stays; meals at famous restaurants along the way and in New York; some sightseeing in Harlem and Manhattan; and, on the way back to Jacksonville, a scheduled stop at the Martin Luther Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C. A Matinee In HarlemŽ features a veritable whos-who among African American Broadway and concert artists,Ž says Linda Twine, a composer-conductor-arranger who has served as music director for a roster of famous onand off-Broadway hits and highpowered concerts, including The Color PurpleŽ and Lena Horne: The Lady And Her Music.Ž The people supporting us in this fund-raising effort will be properly and generously entertained.Ž The tour bus leaves Jacksonville on Oct. 20 and returns on Oct. 24.

They were born after we thought we were done having children, and they have complicated our household in many wonderful ways. They have also colored our lives with a tapestry of awareness that we should have had with our other children, but did not always. I helped them put their sweaters on, for even though it was May, it was still chilly. Each of them put a hand in mine and we stepped outside for an educational walk through the garden where I planned to show them the many wonders of spring. The first thing we came to were the wild roses that bloom along the ditches and canals near our house. Their fragrance filled the air with a scent that tingles the nose. My two-year-old, Elliana, pointed to them. What are those?Ž she asked. Before I could answer, her four-year-old sister, Heather, jumped in. Those,Ž she said, are called noses. They are called that because they smell so good. But be careful, because those sharp things on them are called pokies.Ž A large orange and black Monarch butterfly landed on the bushes next to us. Heather pointed to it. Oh, look, Elli, its a flutterby.Ž As we stood there watching the flutterby, a flock of geese noisily winged its way north in formation above us. Heather pointed to them. Those are called gooses. The noise they make is honking.Ž Elliana looked impressed with her big sisters knowledge. Why are they honking?Ž she asked. Because,Ž Heather answered with an air of four-year-old wisdom, they are anxious to get home, and the ones in the front are going too slow, so the ones in the back want them to get out of the road.Ž As we continued our walk through the garden a pungent smell filled the air. Heather and Elli both sniffed and wrinkled their noses. Heather turned to her little sister. That is called a stunk, and Im sure I dont need to tell you why it is called that.Ž Our walk took us through the strawberry patch that was waking from the cold winter and was starting to put on flowers like a springtime snow. Heather pointed to them. Do you know what these are, Elli?Ž Elli shook her head, so Heather continued. These are called yum berries. That is their real name, but some people call them slow berries because they take too long before they can be eaten.Ž As we continued our walk, I just kept quiet and listened to Heather describe the world around us with her vivid imagery and imaginative way. I realized this educational walk was more of an education for me than for them, for God gave me eyes to see, ears to hear, a nose to smell, a mouth to taste, and fingers with which to feel, but he gave me children to give me a reason to stop and look, to help me pause and listen, to remind me to take time out and smell the flowers, to help me be grateful for the flavors of the bounty around me, and to reach out enjoy touching what I see. Thank you, God, for children. ULYSSES W. WATKINS JR., MD HEALTH NOTES DEHYDRATION GENERAL INFORMATIONDefinition … Loss of water and essential body salts.

The NBC-TV Network introduced a new game show this summer titled Its Worth What?Ž The show is hosted by comic/actor Cedric The Entertainer and airs on Tuesday nights at 8:PM EST. The show has a parallel concept to The Price Is RightŽ but with a different twist. Contestants consist of a two person team who challenges an opposing two person team. They try to guess the price of items presented to them via various guessing games. The stakes get higher as the items increase in both difficulty and reward value. Teams eliminate themselves by placing the wrong price estimates. The wining duo walks away with a cool million bucks. One can bet good money that if Ced The E is on the case it is bound to be an interesting ride. How much fun is he having with this show? He laughs, Man, we are having a good time doing this show. Its fun to do some kind of reality game show based thing for the summer and it has caught on. Its one of those fun shows where peoples family call, they watch it and they play along and people call each other asking did you get that one right, did you get this one right? So the network is really loving it. The advertisers are really loving it. Well probably see them integrate a lot more brands into the show next year because its really perfect for that. For example they could introduce the new Mercedes Benz, what is it valued at; those kinds of things.Ž As a multi-faceted entertainer with many irons in the fire, a job like this could last as long as five years or more. How would Ced handle that? Lighting up he exclaims, I mean yeah, of course. I love the opportunity to do it because the thing about doing a game show is that you can shoot them in a baulk so they dont tie your whole year up. Mater of fact, they prefer to do it that way because the items are so expensive we cant insure that stuff for that long. So were getting rid of it pretty fast. The opportunity to shoot a bunch of shows in a month period is great.Ž What has been Ceds biggest surprise in terms of an item and what it cost that he said man that cant be what it cost? He responds with no hesitation, Aw, they had a skeleton of a bear but it was from the 1800s and that thing was worth a lot more than I thought it was going to be. I just though it was bones!Ž When Ced mentioned a skeleton my first thought was that he was going to say they had the late Michael Jacksons Elephant Man bones. He laughed and added, Im definitely going to find the cool stuff.Ž This first season didnt have any celeb guest on the show. Will that happen in the future? Ced explains, No guest on there but I did pitch them an idea of having a star show up. We were thinking about doing something like they would have a comic strip and ask whats worth more, this comic strip of Snoopy or to hang out with Snoop Dogg? So we are trying to introduce those kinds of things and we may do that in the second round.Ž Tune in, check the show out and have some fun.

These men are veterans in the areas of criminal research and writing. Chepesiuk is an investigative journalist and documentary producer with several true crime books to his credit. Wilson is a former New York, Westchester County correction officer and now journalist who writes for several magazines and blogs. These authors have collaborated to bring their readers a collection of profiles of some of Americas most notorious criminals from the hood. They include Jeff Fort; gang leader of Chicagos PStone Nation/El Rukns gang; Harlem, NY serial killer Clarence The Preacher ManŽ Heatley; World cocaine giant Jimmy The JuiceŽ Springette and many others. One of the main points from this impressive collection of true life accounts is that crime definitely does not pay. Despite the mega-millions, women, partying and lavish lifestyles, the end is always the same for them all, i.e., the grave or prison. Once out of the game, those that survive prison mostly end up destitute on the street. To get this and other true crime books by these authors go to www.strategicmediabooks.com.

Skipper On Saturday, Sept. 10, AT&T partnered with Bethel Baptist Institutional Church to help increase broadband awareness among youth in Jacksonville. More than 40 children and young adults attended the program, called Youth for Broadband Awareness Literacy & EducationŽ (Y-BALE). In creating the Y-BALE program, AT&Ts goal was to educate Floridas youth on the value of wireless broadband in their communities through the utilization of a variety of technologies including television, radio, web streaming and face-to-face education. Access to these media components in non-urban communities will be enhanced through AT&Ts proposed acquisition of T-Mobile. Each Y-BALE seminar culminated with participants producing mobile-phone recorded videos ranging from 30-60 seconds. Messages prepared by the participants included topics such as the effects of cyber-bullying and the value and necessity of a good education. A small group of community stakeholders judged each video and awarded prizes for first, second and third place. Since the program started in July 2011, it has reached more than 700 students across the state.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2011PREP RAPPR 2 Editor-in-Chief of JET Magazine Mitzi Miller will Keynote FAMUs Homecoming Convocation TALLAHASSEE, Fla. … Florida A&M University (FAMU) will host its annual Homecoming Convocation Friday, October 7 at 10:10 a.m. in Jake Gaither Gymnasium. This years keynote speaker is Mitzi Miller, editor-in-chief of JET magazine and FAMU alumna. Miller joined the Johnson Publishing Company family as the editor-in-chief of JET magazine in May 2011. An award-winning journalist, Miller is the bestselling author of five books, including the wildly popular Scholastic/Point 3-book teen series, Hotlanta. She also has extensive television experience including regular appearances on VH1s humorous list shows, as well as ABCs top-rated morning show, Good Morning America, BET and The Food Network. Most recently, Miller served as editor-in-chief of the independent athletic lifestyle publication, SET Magazine. The New York native worked at HONEY Magazine, where she started her career in 2001 as an unpaid intern before quickly becoming the girl-aroundtown columnist for the hip magazines monthly feature, Road Trippin.Ž Readers quickly grew addicted to her many quirky, fun-filled adventures. Mitzi remained at HONEY for two years, during which she became the entertainment editor, received an honorable mention from the National Association of Black Journalists and ultimately became the face of HONEY magazine. Miller is a skilled public speaker who speaks regularly on several nationally syndicated radio shows including The Warren Ballentine Show and has delivered the keynote address at various conferences and seminars nationwide including the 2009 Young Womens Empowerment Summit at Long Island University; Mayor Daleys 2009 Annual Book Club Conference in Chicago; and Essence Magazines Image of Black Women in Media Panel.

Sprite Spark Parks Project for Schools is a national campaign focused on refurbishing active spaces for students, in order to create clean, safe and fun areas and to encourage physical fitness among students. Sprite donated $25,000 to Pinedale Elementary to provide a new playground on campus. The play area will be large enough to accommodate 56 students at a time. It replaces the original wooden structure, and will feature a slide, monkey bars, ladders, climbing pole and other kid-friendly features. We are very excited that Pinedale Elementary was selected to receive this grant that allows them to replace their old playground with brand new equipment,Ž said Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals. It is important that the students at Pinedale Elementary have the opportunity to play and exercise on fun, safe equipment.Ž This event is part of a multi-year initiative by Sprite to positively impact neighborhood and school active spaces in communities across the United States. Working with teens and parents in 2011, the Sprite Spark Parks Project will put approximately $2 million into building or revamping outdoor spaces in at least 150 American cities. For more information about the Sprite Spark Parks Project for Schools national campaign to refresh active areas for students in communities across America, please visit www.mycokerewards.com/sprite. How Self Esteem Can Be More Powerful Than Bullies Dr. Bill Page would rather teach than do just about anything else any day of the week. During my career I was an educator and administrator in elementary, middle and high schools, as well as college, for 33 years,Ž Page said. During that time I enjoyed serving as a Boy and Cub Scout master, and a Sunday school teacher. Through all that time, I have seen just about everything children can experience, both positive and negative, and helped these kids solve what many today see as practically unsolvable problems. For the most part, I didnt have any special technology or divine wisdom. All I had was the head on my shoulders and the heart beating in my chest, and for 33 years those were the only tools I needed.Ž Page, a PhD who in retirement became a childrens book author known as Billy D, said that he has dealt with the absolute worst kids in his school and the best ones, too. In most cases, he said that they were one and the same, just on different days. It doesnt take a PhD to figure out why a kid bullies another kid, or why that kid lets the other one bully him,Ž said Page, author of the childrens book series The Marion Series (www.billydbooks.com). Both kids are scared of something. The kid who is being bullied is afraid of getting beat up, and the bully is afraid of most everything. The secret is being able to connect with them and figure out what both kids are afraid of and helping them face and defeat those fears. The heart of the matter is really one of the most basic truths I know: every child is special. If you want to prevent problems, then parents and teachers simply need to remind kids of this fact on a regular basis. If you tell them often enough, theyll begin to believe it and feel it, too.Ž But as much as Page is an idealist, he also knows he has to channel that idealism to kids through some harsh realism. I put the characters in my books through some paces,Ž he said. They encounter the challenges of responsibility, honesty, self-pride, peer pressure, sibling rivalry, and race relations. They experience the consequences of drug use, over-confidence and facing ridicule. On the other hand, my characters also see the benefits from loving people, befriending them and cooperating with others. My characters are grounded by events that are true-to-life, so that the kids who read them, who are also dealing with the realism in their lives, can relate, understand and learn.Ž In that way, Page believes kids who read his stories can unconsciously see the parallels in their own lives, and learn the same lessons his characters learn in his stories. Is the bully somehow less special than the bullied?Ž he asked. Or are both simply good kids in a bad situation who need to see that their lives can be better if they only see how special they are and the difference they can make in other lives? We all need to know where we keep our strength, the parts of ourselves that help us overcome adversities. If our children dont learn where those places are when theyre kids, they wont know where to find those places as adults.Ž

C&J1 C M Y K Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia StarSEPTEMBER 24 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. Man Kills Wife and Goes on Shooting Frenzy at a ChurchJeremiah Fogle, 57, was accused of shooting and killing his wife, and opening fire at a church during Sunday services. Fogle was said to have killed his wife, Theresa Fogle, 56, on a Sunday before heading to a church that was a block away. As he entered armed with a Colt .32 caliber revolver, he went straight the Pastor,William Boss, who was kneeling down in prayer. He shot him in the back of the head before shooting at Associate Pastor, Carl Stewart, behind his left ear, his back left shoulder, and the center of his back. Derrick Foster, a teacher of the church, heard gunshots and screaming, and tackled Fogle down with another man. Foster said that he tried to take the gun out of his hand, but Fogle had such a strong grip on it and would not let go. He finally dropped the weapon after three to four minutes of struggling. Fogle was restrained by the two men until authorities arrived t the scene. Six more rounds of ammunition were found in Fogles pockets, which police say indicated that he had planned to shoot more. After Fogle became calm, he told police that if they went to his house, they would find his wife, Theresa, and letters of confession. When police went to the house, they found Theresa dead on the living room floor. She had been shot under her chin and the right side of her chest. A note, journal, and three letters were found. They were handwritten and were letters of her confessing of cheating on Fogle. Detectives question the writings and whether Fogle had it all set up from the start. When Fogle was asked if he forced his wife in writing the notes, he replied, You cant force anyone to do anything. There was also a list of more than 25 men whom Theresa said she had affairs with. Authorities say they are planning to track down and interview each of the men on the list. Records show that this is not the first time Fogle had killed his spouse. Police say Fogle had been married at least seven times and had killed another one of his wives in 1986. Fogle had called police telling them he had shot someone and that he was going to shoot himself. When police arrived, they found Fogle in his underwear holding a rifle and acting very strange. He was charged with first-degree murder, which was later reduced to manslaughter and 10 years probation instead of a prison sentence. Fogle is being charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Theresa and three counts of attempted murder. He is also charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling or public place. Both of the pastors who were shot are in critical but stable condition and are being treated. Jeremiah Fogle Man Kidnaps Wife After Chasing and Crashing into her CarPolice had been looking for 42-year-ol, Eric Eron Jacobs, after he reportedly hit his wifes car repeatedly and kidnapped her. Police were able to locate and arrest Jacobs with the help of his wife after she was released. Police said a 55-year-old man drove Jacobs 45-yearold wife, Scarlet Jacobs, to get her car at her apartment complex. When she saw her husband in his Audi, she told her friend in the car to continue driving. Soon they were chased by Jacobs on the freeway. Erics wife and her friend were in a Maxima and were being chased by Eric in his Audi at speeds reaching up to 80 mph. He hit them twice before they were able to make it out of an exit. Eric hit the Maxima another time before they drove into a Food Lion parking lot where they went to search for help. The two in the Maxima drove behind a supermarket, where Jacob hit them again. The man in the Maxima got out as Eric approached the car with a baseball bat and threatened to beat his wife if she didnt get out. He then took her out of the car and drove off with her. Scarlet Jacobs was reported missing and police issued a bulletin for her disappearance until they got a call from her. She was released shortly after the kidnapping and officers went to the couples home, where he was nowhere to be found. A couple weeks later, Scarlet let officers into the home to arrest her husband while he was asleep. Eric Jacobs was arrested on charges of kidnapping and aggravated battery. Eric Eron Jacobs

Box 40629, Jacksonville, FL 32203 Bodies Found Identified and ConfirmedThe bodies of a man and a woman were found last month after a couple had gone missing. The bodies were heavily decomposed and could not be identified. After much investigation, police have finally confirmed that the bodies were that of the missing couple. On August 17, police made it public that a newlywed couple were reported missing; Jeanette W. Hawkins, 36, and Ricky Morgan, 31. Family members of Hawkins said the last time they saw her with Morgan was at a family gathering. Police say that she was seen two days later, but was never seen after that. The couple have also been married for about five months. Vanessa Reid, Hawkins mother, said she learned about her daughters disappearance from an uncle, who went to Hawkins home to check on her well-being. She was nowhere to be found and the familys efforts to reach her by phone were unsuccessful. Reid also said she was always worried about her daughter. Whenever she would talk with her daughter on the phone, Morgan would always be right behind her. Reid would indicate to her daughter that she would feel something wasnt right, but she would always tell her, Momma, everythings alright.Ž About a week later, calls were made to the police after residents were complaining a foul odor coming from the nearby woods. Bodies of a man and a woman were found, but were decomposed beyond recognition. Police said the bodies had been dead for at least a week. About a week later, the woman was identified as one of the bodies by police, but the man of the second body was unknown. Police have finally confirmed this week that the second body was the husband and these were the bodies of the newlywed couples that disappeared. Both deaths are being investigated as murders but the causes are unknown. Ricky Morgan JeannetteHawkins

Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Disabled Man Forced to Stand in Anthills for Hours A 21-year-old disabled man was forced to stand barefoot on anthills for hours by Quentin Amos, 21. Amos was an employee of a group home for the disabled and saw the 21-year-old take money from the group home van. As punishment, he had him take his shoes and socks off and stand in an anthill. He was also forced to put his hands in them. Amos had the victim stand in an ant pile for about two hours and then had him move into another pile ater. The victim was covered with bites all over his body from head to toe. Amos was said to have been taking care of his victim. The victims father said hes only seen his son cry twice in his life and is outraged by the incident. He said that his son was too traumatized and did not even want to be identified to the public. He was also said to have admitted to his wrongdoing in stealing the money. Amos denied accusations, but witnesses confirmed the story of the victim. He was charged with abuse of a disabled adult and was released on $2,000 bond. The group homes license has been suspended by the Agency of Disabled Persons and four other residents that lived there have been moved to other group homes in the area. Woman Gets Kicked Out of Library For Loud Baby and Curses at Police for Almost an Hour Donnetta Foster, 20, was arrested for yelling and cursing at police for 48 minutes after being thrown out of the library. Foster had gone to the library to look up information for a job interview with her 14-month-old son. While she worked on the computer, her son became noisy and librarians started to ask her if she could keep the baby quiet. After the third time, librarians shut her computer down from the front desk and had security get her to leave. The help of police was needed to escort Foster out, but she decided not to stay quiet. Police were there to have Foster leave the place and gave her a warning, but she decided to yell and curse at them for 48 full minutes. After another warning and not cooperating, Foster was arrested for obstructing a law enforcement officer. After Donnetta decided to take her case to court, she was found guilty. She spent two days in jail and was sentenced to a year probation, 40 hours of community service, and parenting and anger management classes. Man Pleads Guilty to First-Degree Murder After Beating Child for Interfering with Video Game Edwardsville, ILSean Starwalt, 34, had fatally beaten his girlfriends 4-year-old son, Jeremiah Bradford, after he kept getting in front of the TV while he was playing video games. A neighbor observed the child after the beating and saw that he was injured and in great pain. The neighbor suggested the mother, Patricia Cage, to take him to the hospital. Instead, the couple went to a McDonalds to have dinner.Prosecutors said that Jeremiah had lost almost half the blood in his body throughout that night. The beating was so severe that it damaged tissues in his digestive system and caused internal bleeding. He was taken to the hospital the next day, but was dead on arrival. Authorities say he wouldve survived if he was taken to the hospital right away. Instead, he was left to internally bleed for about 15 hours. Starwalt was arrested for first-degree murder, but he told authorities the boy injured himself from jumping and falling off the couch. Cage was also arrested with first-degree murder for trying to cover up the beating and failing to get his son medical attention. Teen Shoots at Squad Car Because He Was Bored Two police officers had pulled over a suspicious vehicle and were sitting in their car. All of sudden, shots were being fired at the car and the officers ducked for cover inside the car. Police were called to the scene including a K-9 unit to locate suspects, but none were found. Police continued to look for clues and eventually heard that Gomez was in a gang and was bragging about the shooting. Police were later able to confirm that Gomez was the shooter and tracked him down. Gomez denied the accusation at first, but later admitted that he was bored and wanted to fire the gun. Gomez was charged with two counts of first degree attempted murder and two counts of first degree felony assault. Man Kills Pregnant Wife and Kills Himself St. Louis, MOTerrance Burnett, 41, was said to have shot his pregnant, estranged wife, Danielle Burnett, 29, in the face twice after seeing her getting out of a car with her boyfriend. After she fell to the ground, her boyfriend threw himself over her trying to shield her from the gunfire. Burnett then ran off and disappeared. Danielle Burnett was taken to the hospital, where she died along with her four month fetus. Her boyfriend was treated and released. Police tracked down Burnett a few days later, but he ran into the woods after spotting police. He then ran under a bridge where he shot and killed himself. Records show that Terrance had found out his wife was pregnant two weeks ago, but it was unclear who the father was. Also she had filed for divorce last month, but she showed no indication of Burnett being violent. Quentin Amos Donnetta Foster

The couple has been selling fruits and vegetables at the corner for more than twenty years. Both were struck by the car. A man who came to their aide said that Papi was laying on top of Mami. He had to move him off of her and once he did, he realized that she was no longer breathing. Her husband has broken bones and his pelvis has been shattered. He also has a punctured lung. The driver was also elderly and it has been reported that he had a heart attack, which caused him to lose control. He too was hospitalized. \gvc Egngdtcvgu 82"[gctuUgg"Rtgr"Tcr Members of Fishers of Men World Harvest Church, Brunswick, Georgia are disturbed that a report regarding a house and their former choir director. names Marcellous Dunbar as their pastor. He is not! According to reports, Dunbar has taken residence at an Orange Park, Florida property, and placed furniture in the house that he has not purchased but filed an adverse possession document for the property. He stated, according to reports, that this is his way of cleaning up homelessness in Jacksonville. The house was purchased and closing was completed last week. The new owners then had the property cleaned and utilities turned on. It appears that Dunbar filed his document on the same day the new owners closed their loan for the $440,000 they agreed to pay for the house, which had an appraisal amount of nearly $l million. The new buyers said they will be arriving in Jacksonville early next week and expect Dunbar to be gone by that time. The Clay County Sheriffs Office said they are investigating the trespassing claims. Dunbar says his occupation of the property is legal under Florida law. It is difficult to handle when you learn that a 22-year-old died because a 23-year-old neighbor forgot to turn off his car when he parked it in the garage. Andrew Grywalski said he was not distracted, he had not consumed any drugs or alcohol when he pulled into his garage driving his 2011 Mazda 3. He has just finished an art class, went to have dinner with his dad and thought he had turned off his motor. However, the car runs very quietly and he accidentally left the keys in the ignition, over night. Several hours later, he noticed a smell and reported it to the maintenance department. The next morning the smell was worse. Other tenants reported the odor and went to the hospital. Rebecca slept through the smell and to her death. She was from Jacksonville, a graduate of Forrest High, Class of 2006.

He would be receiving a full scholarship to attend school. On top of that, the Arizona Cardinals offered him more than $1 million a season to get him to change his mind. Wright responded that he will continue his dream. He had spent seven seasons in the NFL but he feels strongly about his goal of working with inner city youth. With President Obama pushing hard for jobs, the ultra conservative billionaires, the Koch brothers, who have been major contributors to such organizations as the Tea Party and other conservative movements, and the owners of Georgia-Pacific, one of the largest companies in the world, just announced that it is closing its Hawthorne Plywood Mill, leaving almost 400 without a job. Many of the workers were shocked by the closure as they have worked for the company most of their lives. The company said they are closing the division because of the weak demand for home building and remodeling. Production will cease October 14.

Richard P. Burton, Sr., Director PROJECT R.E.A.C.H., INC. VOICELESS LEADERSMany times in the past we have written and spoken about poverty and disparities within the criminal/juvenile justice system and the prison industrial complex. Also, we have reached out to leaders, asking that they advocate against the cruel and inhumane treatments within the prison industrial complex and conditions that often fuel this system, such as poverty, racism, the war on drugs, sentencing guidelines/disparities, three strikes, and mandatory minimum laws. However, the lips of many leaders have remained tight and voices silent, as it relates to the horrific conditions surrounding the criminal/juvenile justice system, a system which continue to plague many African American, Hispanic and poor communities throughout the United States. The war around the War on Drugs is a battle between public health and criminal justice. Its a battle between conservatives calling for imprisonment and progressives calling for public health solutions. Its the legacy of Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, Nelson Rockefeller, and others who used the fear of crime to build campaigns around law and order. Over the last several decades the war on drugs has diminished many of the civil and human rights gains of the past. Billions of dollars are spent yearly on criminal justice, including the building of private and mega prisons and jails, while at the same time, inner city schools are failing and falling apart. It would seem that the case for reducing incarceration rates could not be stronger, especially with the political debates to cut our national debts/budgets. However, many groups have vested interest in keeping prisons as full as possible the private prison corporations, their shareholders and those that continue to suppress the vote. According to a report by the Justice Policy Institute, the U.S.'s two largest private prison companies, Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and GEO Group, pocketed collective annual revenues of 2.9 billion dollars at the close of 2010. The report states, "While private prison companies may try to present themselves as just meeting existing demand for prison beds and responding to current market conditions, in fact, they have worked hard over the past decade to create markets for their product. As revenues of private prison companies have grown over the past decade, the companies have had more resources with which to build political power, and they have used this power to promote policies that lead to higher rates of incarceration. Might I suggest to the readers of this message that you lift your voice and demand your religious, civil rights, political and community leaders to advocate for liberty and justice for all and to become pro active and not reactionary.

A4 C M Y KPAGE A-4 THE STAR SEPTEMBER 24, 2011 E kaabo (pronounced eh-kah-bow). Welcome. It Was the Party No One Wanted to Miss!As a real life Army wife, my cousin, Barbara Breaker, mastered the art of moving households and all that it entails (the never-ending packing, directing movers, praying that if something breaks, let it be that old, generic gargle glass that was bought in Pic n Save, the never-ending unpacking) with three, then four, children in tow between continents, and across the U.S. Barbaras stories of these adventures make it sound so effortless. Plan, pack, move, and unpack. From these experiences, her children Aimee, Imani, Toure, and Danny, adults with their own families and careers learned well how to plan, pack, move, and unpack. Each has moved across several states, with at least two doing the transcontinental hop! I said all that to say, it doesnt take long for this family to broach an idea and put it into action. It happened last week, when daughter Imani Breaker flew home from NYC to plan a fish fry in honor of her moms birthday! Family and friends gathered on the wraparound porch of Breaker Manor, Barbara and husband Ronalds sprawling Springfield home, for a spread of fried fish, shrimp, and hushpuppies, macaroni salad, potato salad, baked beans, cole slaw, and grits. Did I forget anything? Oh yes, Aimee Breaker Roysters delicious Chocolate Malted Whopper Cookies, a decadent raspberry cream birthday cake, and vanilla ice cream. There was beer and a variety of nice wines. As a matter of fact, we drank enough bottles of wine to amply give life to Barbaras newly sprouted bottle tree! The impromptu gathering of family and friends, included: daughters Imani Breaker and Aimee Breaker Royster of Navarre, Florida (hubby Gary and their teenage daughter, Alaina did not make the trip this time); granddaughter Kyra Royster; cousins James Burroughs, Toni Owens, Jimmy McCoy, Geri and Jacqueline Jennings; nephew Dwayne Breaker, his wife, Ana Kamiar and adorable son, Azavi; friends Marilyn Williams, LaConnetta Weston, Pat George, Mel and Brenda Bellard-Harris, Roz Burrough, Mary Jones, Arthur and Artis Walker, Vicki and William Hamilton, and Volume and Ok Sun Burks; and yours truly. After contributing one last bottle to the Bottle Tree of Breaker Manor, Barbara, Ok Sun, and I (the last ones standing) declared the party over at 3:00 a.m. It was a FANTABULOUS time and bears the honor of being THE TALK OF THE TOWN!Feeding Dreams Initiative Honors Everyday MomsBetty Burney Saluted as First Honoree(The following article and photographs furnished by SMSi Urban Call Marketing. The article has been edited due to space constraints.) At the Feeding Dreams Kick-Off breakfast, Betty Burney, mother of two and founder of Education Star Corporation was honored and saluted as the first Jacksonville Feeding Dreams Outstanding Mom for 2011-2012. This initiative recognizes African American moms who do whatever it takes to feed the dreams and improve the lives of their families and communities, said Lafayette Jones, President and CEO, SMSi Urban Call Marketing. Feeding Dreams is sponsored by General Mills. Burneys Im A Star Foundation empowers youth with knowledge and resources that enable them to transcend barriers to success and unleash their inner greatness. Burney also serves as vice chair of the Duval County School Board. The breakfast served as the launch to the Feeding Dreams Get Together initiative. General Mills launched Feeding Dreams Get Togethers, a grassroots initiative to provide intimate forums in communities across Jacksonville to discuss efforts to positively impact health and education in African-American communities. At each get together, a mom will be honored and saluted for her dedication and perseverance to her family and community. In appreciation for her efforts, each recognized mother will receive a Feeding Dreams tote bag, a certificate of appreciation and certificate for 500 Box Tops For Education. The honoree can donate the BTFE to the school of her choice, which will help the school purchase needed educational supplies. The Help and Nippers Beach Grille. A few weeks ago, Volume, Ok Sun, and daughter Chloe invited me out for a movie and dinner. We saw The Help, which we agreed was an interesting portrayal of an untold story of African American existence in this country. The acting was outstanding and, IMHO (in my humble opinion), deserves several nods for the Academy Award. Ive read stating that African Americans should be insulted by the movie, especially if Viola Davis and/or Octavia Spencer, the main African American actors who portrayed maids, are nominated for Oscars. Frankly, its a story thats never been told in quite this way and gives voice to the hundreds of women who cared for hundreds of families as depicted in the movie. Besides, the sistahs got the last laugh (think chocolate pie). I give it three fist bumps and a high five! BTW, after the movie, we had dinner at Nippers Beach Grille, the Jacksonville Beach restaurant opened by Top Chef D.C. contestant, Executive Chef Kenny Gilbert (Im a big fan of the show and The Beast, which he called himself on the show). It does a bustling business which features relaxed indoor and outdoor dining. It is popular with boaters who dock at the marina adjacent to the restaurant. Guests with reservations are accommodated in an indoor dining room with ceiling to floor windows providing views of the Intercoastal and docked, luxury watercrafts. This room also gives some diners a peek into the kitchen where Chef Kenny and his staff work their magic preparing delectable cuisine described as having Southern, International, and Caribbean influences. As you head east toward the beach, Nippers Beach Grille is located on the north side of Beach Boulevard, just across the Intercoastal Waterway. Visit their website at www.nippersbeachgrille.com.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.Broadway performer Roslyn Burrough, normally high-energy and upbeat, finishes a phone call with an extrawide grin. I feel so blessed, I feel so blessed, I feel soooo blessed! she says, practically screaming with delight. Thats another one whos just signed on. Were getting ready! We will be there! The we Burrough is referring to is herself and a group of about 50 fans, a comfortable busload, she has begun organizing locally in Jacksonville. There is Harlem, New York, home of the landmark St. James Presbyterian Church, one of the oldest African American congregations in the community16 years strongand for decades the spiritual mooring for many noteworthy African American performing artists, whether living in town or just passing through. A dwindled, cash-strapped congregation has been hard pressed to keep up with the cost of maintaining and repairing the neoGothic structure. Hurricane Irene was an ill wind and drench-ing rain that served as a reminder that repairs are long overdue. Burrough and about 20 other African American singers, actors and musicians, all of whom have been in major productions nationally and internationally, are heeding the churchs call for help. Theyre in all-handson-deck mode, planning to raise money the best way they know howwith their God-given talents in a rollicking revue titled A Matinee In Harlem. Weve always done fund-raising concerts for the church, but the one were doing on Oct. 22 is extra-extra special because the need is so great, says Burrough, a Broadway veteran whose wellknown alter ego, Auntie Roz, drives the Auntie Roz Childrens Workshop, a tiered series of programs that uses the performing arts to encourage literacy, good study habits and personal responsibility in children and young adults. We all love this church. It has been a vital presence in the community, and now it really needs our help. Were getting ready to make some joyful noise. Friends of Auntie Roz Childrens Workshop Inc., loyal fans who have followed Burroughs career and her tireless work and advocacy in behalf of children, has organized a bus tour to New York for anyone wanting to attend the Harlem concert as an expression of supportboth for the church and the starstudded cast of the Broadway-style production. Shes a hometown girl, born and raised, and shes done so much for us in Jacksonville, says Deborah Bell, who is coordinating the tour. At the concert, we want Jacksonville to be present and accounted for. Priced affordably, the tour package includes a ticket to the show; two overnight hotel stays; meals at famous restaurants along the way and in New York; some sightseeing in Harlem and Manhattan; and, on the way back to Jacksonville, a scheduled stop at the Martin Luther Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C. A Matinee In Harlem features a veritable whos-who among African American Broadway and concert artists, says Linda Twine, a composer-conductor-arranger who has served as music director for a roster of famous onand off-Broadway hits and highpowered concerts, including The Color Purple and Lena Horne: The Lady And Her Music. The people supporting us in this fund-raising effort will be properly and generously entertained. The tour bus leaves Jacksonville on Oct. 20 and returns on Oct. 24.

They were born after we thought we were done having children, and they have complicated our household in many wonderful ways. They have also colored our lives with a tapestry of awareness that we should have had with our other children, but did not always. I helped them put their sweaters on, for even though it was May, it was still chilly. Each of them put a hand in mine and we stepped outside for an educational walk through the garden where I planned to show them the many wonders of spring. The first thing we came to were the wild roses that bloom along the ditches and canals near our house. Their fragrance filled the air with a scent that tingles the nose. My two-year-old, Elliana, pointed to them. What are those? she asked. Before I could answer, her four-year-old sister, Heather, jumped in. Those, she said, are called noses. They are called that because they smell so good. But be careful, because those sharp things on them are called pokies. A large orange and black Monarch butterfly landed on the bushes next to us. Heather pointed to it. Oh, look, Elli, its a flutterby. As we stood there watching the flutterby, a flock of geese noisily winged its way north in formation above us. Heather pointed to them. Those are called gooses. The noise they make is honking. Elliana looked impressed with her big sisters knowledge. Why are they honking? she asked. Because, Heather answered with an air of four-year-old wisdom, they are anxious to get home, and the ones in the front are going too slow, so the ones in the back want them to get out of the road. As we continued our walk through the garden a pungent smell filled the air. Heather and Elli both sniffed and wrinkled their noses. Heather turned to her little sister. That is called a stunk, and Im sure I dont need to tell you why it is called that. Our walk took us through the strawberry patch that was waking from the cold winter and was starting to put on flowers like a springtime snow. Heather pointed to them. Do you know what these are, Elli? Elli shook her head, so Heather continued. These are called yum berries. That is their real name, but some people call them slow berries because they take too long before they can be eaten. As we continued our walk, I just kept quiet and listened to Heather describe the world around us with her vivid imagery and imaginative way. I realized this educational walk was more of an education for me than for them, for God gave me eyes to see, ears to hear, a nose to smell, a mouth to taste, and fingers with which to feel, but he gave me children to give me a reason to stop and look, to help me pause and listen, to remind me to take time out and smell the flowers, to help me be grateful for the flavors of the bounty around me, and to reach out enjoy touching what I see. Thank you, God, for children. ULYSSES W. WATKINS JR., MD HEALTH NOTES DEHYDRATION GENERAL INFORMATIONDefinition Loss of water and essential body salts.

The NBC-TV Network introduced a new game show this summer titled Its Worth What? The show is hosted by comic/actor Cedric The Entertainer and airs on Tuesday nights at 8:PM EST. The show has a parallel concept to The Price Is Right but with a different twist. Contestants consist of a two person team who challenges an opposing two person team. They try to guess the price of items presented to them via various guessing games. The stakes get higher as the items increase in both difficulty and reward value. Teams eliminate themselves by placing the wrong price estimates. The wining duo walks away with a cool million bucks. One can bet good money that if Ced The E is on the case it is bound to be an interesting ride. How much fun is he having with this show? He laughs, Man, we are having a good time doing this show. Its fun to do some kind of reality game show based thing for the summer and it has caught on. Its one of those fun shows where peoples family call, they watch it and they play along and people call each other asking did you get that one right, did you get this one right? So the network is really loving it. The advertisers are really loving it. Well probably see them integrate a lot more brands into the show next year because its really perfect for that. For example they could introduce the new Mercedes Benz, what is it valued at; those kinds of things. As a multi-faceted entertainer with many irons in the fire, a job like this could last as long as five years or more. How would Ced handle that? Lighting up he exclaims, I mean yeah, of course. I love the opportunity to do it because the thing about doing a game show is that you can shoot them in a baulk so they dont tie your whole year up. Mater of fact, they prefer to do it that way because the items are so expensive we cant insure that stuff for that long. So were getting rid of it pretty fast. The opportunity to shoot a bunch of shows in a month period is great. What has been Ceds biggest surprise in terms of an item and what it cost that he said man that cant be what it cost? He responds with no hesitation, Aw, they had a skeleton of a bear but it was from the 1800s and that thing was worth a lot more than I thought it was going to be. I just though it was bones! When Ced mentioned a skeleton my first thought was that he was going to say they had the late Michael Jacksons Elephant Man bones. He laughed and added, Im definitely going to find the cool stuff. This first season didnt have any celeb guest on the show. Will that happen in the future? Ced explains, No guest on there but I did pitch them an idea of having a star show up. We were thinking about doing something like they would have a comic strip and ask whats worth more, this comic strip of Snoopy or to hang out with Snoop Dogg? So we are trying to introduce those kinds of things and we may do that in the second round. Tune in, check the show out and have some fun. PAGE B-6 THESTAR SEPTEMBER 24, 2011ENTERTAINMENT Cedric The Entertainer,Host of NBCs Its Worth What?By Rych McCain, feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net Photo by Tessa Viles for NBC-TV Books: Straight From The Hood is the new book from authors Ron Chepesiuk & Scott Wilson. These men are veterans in the areas of criminal research and writing. Chepesiuk is an investigative journalist and documentary producer with several true crime books to his credit. Wilson is a former New York, Westchester County correction officer and now journalist who writes for several magazines and blogs. These authors have collaborated to bring their readers a collection of profiles of some of Americas most notorious criminals from the hood. They include Jeff Fort; gang leader of Chicagos PStone Nation/El Rukns gang; Harlem, NY serial killer Clarence The Preacher Man Heatley; World cocaine giant Jimmy The Juice Springette and many others. One of the main points from this impressive collection of true life accounts is that crime definitely does not pay. Despite the mega-millions, women, partying and lavish lifestyles, the end is always the same for them all, i.e., the grave or prison. Once out of the game, those that survive prison mostly end up destitute on the street. To get this and other true crime books by these authors go to www.strategicmediabooks.com.

Skipper On Saturday, Sept. 10, AT&T partnered with Bethel Baptist Institutional Church to help increase broadband awareness among youth in Jacksonville. More than 40 children and young adults attended the program, called Youth for Broadband Awareness Literacy & Education (Y-BALE). In creating the Y-BALE program, AT&Ts goal was to educate Floridas youth on the value of wireless broadband in their communities through the utilization of a variety of technologies including television, radio, web streaming and face-to-face education. Access to these media components in non-urban communities will be enhanced through AT&Ts proposed acquisition of T-Mobile. Each Y-BALE seminar culminated with participants producing mobile-phone recorded videos ranging from 30-60 seconds. Messages prepared by the participants included topics such as the effects of cyber-bullying and the value and necessity of a good education. A small group of community stakeholders judged each video and awarded prizes for first, second and third place. Since the program started in July 2011, it has reached more than 700 students across the state.

Sprite Spark Parks Project for Schools is a national campaign focused on refurbishing active spaces for students, in order to create clean, safe and fun areas and to encourage physical fitness among students. Sprite donated $25,000 to Pinedale Elementary to provide a new playground on campus. The play area will be large enough to accommodate 56 students at a time. It replaces the original wooden structure, and will feature a slide, monkey bars, ladders, climbing pole and other kid-friendly features. We are very excited that Pinedale Elementary was selected to receive this grant that allows them to replace their old playground with brand new equipment, said Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals. It is important that the students at Pinedale Elementary have the opportunity to play and exercise on fun, safe equipment. This event is part of a multi-year initiative by Sprite to positively impact neighborhood and school active spaces in communities across the United States. Working with teens and parents in 2011, the Sprite Spark Parks Project will put approximately $2 million into building or revamping outdoor spaces in at least 150 American cities.

How Self Esteem Can Be More Powerful Than Bullies Dr. Bill Page would rather teach than do just about anything else any day of the week. During my career I was an educator and administrator in elementary, middle and high schools, as well as college, for 33 years, Page said. During that time I enjoyed serving as a Boy and Cub Scout master, and a Sunday school teacher. Through all that time, I have seen just about everything children can experience, both positive and negative, and helped these kids solve what many today see as practically unsolvable problems. For the most part, I didnt have any special technology or divine wisdom. All I had was the head on my shoulders and the heart beating in my chest, and for 33 years those were the only tools I needed. Page, a PhD who in retirement became a childrens book author known as Billy D, said that he has dealt with the absolute worst kids in his school and the best ones, too. In most cases, he said that they were one and the same, just on different days. It doesnt take a PhD to figure out why a kid bullies another kid, or why that kid lets the other one bully him, said Page, author of the childrens book series The Marion Series (www.billydbooks.com). Both kids are scared of something. The kid who is being bullied is afraid of getting beat up, and the bully is afraid of most everything. The secret is being able to connect with them and figure out what both kids are afraid of and helping them face and defeat those fears. The heart of the matter is really one of the most basic truths I know: every child is special. If you want to prevent problems, then parents and teachers simply need to remind kids of this fact on a regular basis. If you tell them often enough, theyll begin to believe it and feel it, too. But as much as Page is an idealist, he also knows he has to channel that idealism to kids through some harsh realism. I put the characters in my books through some paces, he said. They encounter the challenges of responsibility, honesty, self-pride, peer pressure, sibling rivalry, and race relations. They experience the consequences of drug use, over-confidence and facing ridicule. On the other hand, my characters also see the benefits from loving people, befriending them and cooperating with others. My characters are grounded by events that are true-to-life, so that the kids who read them, who are also dealing with the realism in their lives, can relate, understand and learn. In that way, Page believes kids who read his stories can unconsciously see the parallels in their own lives, and learn the same lessons his characters learn in his stories. Is the bully somehow less special than the bullied? he asked. Or are both simply good kids in a bad situation who need to see that their lives can be better if they only see how special they are and the difference they can make in other lives? We all need to know where we keep our strength, the parts of ourselves that help us overcome adversities. If our children dont learn where those places are when theyre kids, they wont know where to find those places as adults.

C&J1 C M Y K Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia StarSEPTEMBER 24 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. Man Kills Wife and Goes on Shooting Frenzy at a ChurchJeremiah Fogle, 57, was accused of shooting and killing his wife, and opening fire at a church during Sunday services. Fogle was said to have killed his wife, Theresa Fogle, 56, on a Sunday before heading to a church that was a block away. As he entered armed with a Colt .32 caliber revolver, he went straight the Pastor,William Boss, who was kneeling down in prayer. He shot him in the back of the head before shooting at Associate Pastor, Carl Stewart, behind his left ear, his back left shoulder, and the center of his back. Derrick Foster, a teacher of the church, heard gunshots and screaming, and tackled Fogle down with another man. Foster said that he tried to take the gun out of his hand, but Fogle had such a strong grip on it and would not let go. He finally dropped the weapon after three to four minutes of struggling. Fogle was restrained by the two men until authorities arrived t the scene. Six more rounds of ammunition were found in Fogles pockets, which police say indicated that he had planned to shoot more. After Fogle became calm, he told police that if they went to his house, they would find his wife, Theresa, and letters of confession. When police went to the house, they found Theresa dead on the living room floor. She had been shot under her chin and the right side of her chest. A note, journal, and three letters were found. They were handwritten and were letters of her confessing of cheating on Fogle. Detectives question the writings and whether Fogle had it all set up from the start. When Fogle was asked if he forced his wife in writing the notes, he replied, You cant force anyone to do anything. There was also a list of more than 25 men whom Theresa said she had affairs with. Authorities say they are planning to track down and interview each of the men on the list. Records show that this is not the first time Fogle had killed his spouse. Police say Fogle had been married at least seven times and had killed another one of his wives in 1986. Fogle had called police telling them he had shot someone and that he was going to shoot himself. When police arrived, they found Fogle in his underwear holding a rifle and acting very strange. He was charged with first-degree murder, which was later reduced to manslaughter and 10 years probation instead of a prison sentence. Fogle is being charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Theresa and three counts of attempted murder. He is also charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling or public place. Both of the pastors who were shot are in critical but stable condition and are being treated. Jeremiah Fogle Man Kidnaps Wife After Chasing and Crashing into her CarPolice had been looking for 42-year-ol, Eric Eron Jacobs, after he reportedly hit his wifes car repeatedly and kidnapped her. Police were able to locate and arrest Jacobs with the help of his wife after she was released. Police said a 55-year-old man drove Jacobs 45-yearold wife, Scarlet Jacobs, to get her car at her apartment complex. When she saw her husband in his Audi, she told her friend in the car to continue driving. Soon they were chased by Jacobs on the freeway. Erics wife and her friend were in a Maxima and were being chased by Eric in his Audi at speeds reaching up to 80 mph. He hit them twice before they were able to make it out of an exit. Eric hit the Maxima another time before they drove into a Food Lion parking lot where they went to search for help. The two in the Maxima drove behind a supermarket, where Jacob hit them again. The man in the Maxima got out as Eric approached the car with a baseball bat and threatened to beat his wife if she didnt get out. He then took her out of the car and drove off with her. Scarlet Jacobs was reported missing and police issued a bulletin for her disappearance until they got a call from her. She was released shortly after the kidnapping and officers went to the couples home, where he was nowhere to be found. A couple weeks later, Scarlet let officers into the home to arrest her husband while he was asleep. Eric Jacobs was arrested on charges of kidnapping and aggravated battery. Eric Eron Jacobs

SAFE AT HOME Make sure all doors to the outside have good, sturdy locks. Use the locks you have. Always lock up your home when you go out, even if its only for a few minutes. Make sure your windows, especially at ground level, have good locks and use them. Make sure all porches and other possible entrances are well-lit. Dont hide your house keys under the doormat or in a flowerpot. Its much wiser to give an extra key to a trusted neighbor. Take pictures or a video, and keep purchase information and serial numbers if available. These help law enforcement agencies track recovered items. Clearly display your house number, so police and other emergency vehicles can find your home quickly. If you see a screen that has been cut, broken windows, or a door thats been left open, dont go in. Call the police from a neighbors house or a public phone. If you hear a noise that sounds like someone breaking in or moving around, quietly call the police and wait calmly until they arrive. If you can leave safely, do so. Otherwise, lock yourself in a room you are in, pretend to be asleep. Think carefully before buying a firearm for protection. Guns can be stolen and sold to anyone, or captured and used on you or the police. If you do own a gun, keep it locked up, with the ammunition secured separately, and learn how to use it safely.

Box 40629, Jacksonville, FL 32203 Bodies Found Identified and ConfirmedThe bodies of a man and a woman were found last month after a couple had gone missing. The bodies were heavily decomposed and could not be identified. After much investigation, police have finally confirmed that the bodies were that of the missing couple. On August 17, police made it public that a newlywed couple were reported missing; Jeanette W. Hawkins, 36, and Ricky Morgan, 31. Family members of Hawkins said the last time they saw her with Morgan was at a family gathering. Police say that she was seen two days later, but was never seen after that. The couple have also been married for about five months. Vanessa Reid, Hawkins mother, said she learned about her daughters disappearance from an uncle, who went to Hawkins home to check on her well-being. She was nowhere to be found and the familys efforts to reach her by phone were unsuccessful. Reid also said she was always worried about her daughter. Whenever she would talk with her daughter on the phone, Morgan would always be right behind her. Reid would indicate to her daughter that she would feel something wasnt right, but she would always tell her, Momma, everythings alright. About a week later, calls were made to the police after residents were complaining a foul odor coming from the nearby woods. Bodies of a man and a woman were found, but were decomposed beyond recognition. Police said the bodies had been dead for at least a week. About a week later, the woman was identified as one of the bodies by police, but the man of the second body was unknown. Police have finally confirmed this week that the second body was the husband and these were the bodies of the newlywed couples that disappeared. Both deaths are being investigated as murders but the causes are unknown. Ricky Morgan JeannetteHawkins

Woman Gets Kicked Out of Library For Loud Baby and Curses at Police for Almost an Hour Donnetta Foster, 20, was arrested for yelling and cursing at police for 48 minutes after being thrown out of the library. Foster had gone to the library to look up information for a job interview with her 14-month-old son. While she worked on the computer, her son became noisy and librarians started to ask her if she could keep the baby quiet. After the third time, librarians shut her computer down from the front desk and had security get her to leave. The help of police was needed to escort Foster out, but she decided not to stay quiet. Police were there to have Foster leave the place and gave her a warning, but she decided to yell and curse at them for 48 full minutes. After another warning and not cooperating, Foster was arrested for obstructing a law enforcement officer. After Donnetta decided to take her case to court, she was found guilty. She spent two days in jail and was sentenced to a year probation, 40 hours of community service, and parenting and anger management classes. Man Pleads Guilty to First-Degree Murder After Beating Child for Interfering with Video Game Edwardsville, ILSean Starwalt, 34, had fatally beaten his girlfriends 4-year-old son, Jeremiah Bradford, after he kept getting in front of the TV while he was playing video games. A neighbor observed the child after the beating and saw that he was injured and in great pain. The neighbor suggested the mother, Patricia Cage, to take him to the hospital. Instead, the couple went to a McDonalds to have dinner.Prosecutors said that Jeremiah had lost almost half the blood in his body throughout that night. The beating was so severe that it damaged tissues in his digestive system and caused internal bleeding. He was taken to the hospital the next day, but was dead on arrival. Authorities say he wouldve survived if he was taken to the hospital right away. Instead, he was left to internally bleed for about 15 hours. Starwalt was arrested for first-degree murder, but he told authorities the boy injured himself from jumping and falling off the couch. Cage was also arrested with first-degree murder for trying to cover up the beating and failing to get his son medical attention. Teen Shoots at Squad Car Because He Was Bored Two police officers had pulled over a suspicious vehicle and were sitting in their car. All of sudden, shots were being fired at the car and the officers ducked for cover inside the car. Police were called to the scene including a K-9 unit to locate suspects, but none were found. Police continued to look for clues and eventually heard that Gomez was in a gang and was bragging about the shooting. Police were later able to confirm that Gomez was the shooter and tracked him down. Gomez denied the accusation at first, but later admitted that he was bored and wanted to fire the gun. Gomez was charged with two counts of first degree attempted murder and two counts of first degree felony assault. Man Kills Pregnant Wife and Kills Himself St. Louis, MOTerrance Burnett, 41, was said to have shot his pregnant, estranged wife, Danielle Burnett, 29, in the face twice after seeing her getting out of a car with her boyfriend. After she fell to the ground, her boyfriend threw himself over her trying to shield her from the gunfire. Burnett then ran off and disappeared. Danielle Burnett was taken to the hospital, where she died along with her four month fetus. Her boyfriend was treated and released. Police tracked down Burnett a few days later, but he ran into the woods after spotting police. He then ran under a bridge where he shot and killed himself. Records show that Terrance had found out his wife was pregnant two weeks ago, but it was unclear who the father was. Also she had filed for divorce last month, but she showed no indication of Burnett being violent. Quentin Amos Donnetta Foster
