DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE: 1-800-500-1119What is Domestic Violence? Domestic violence is a pattern of behaviors that adults or adolescents use against their intimate partners or former partners to establish power and control. It may include physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and economic abuse. It may also include threats, isolation, pet abuse, using children and a variety of other behaviors used to maintain fear, intimidation and power over one's partner. Domestic violence knows no boundaries. It occurs in intimate relationships, regardless of race, religion, culture or socioeconomic status. Child abuse is also prevalent and often occurs in the same families as domestic violence. Research indicates, as well, that merely witnessing domestic violence can have profound effects on children. Childhood exposure to domestic violence is associated with increased aggression, depression and anxiety, lower levels of social competence, and poorer academic functioning. Next to substance misuse, "Family violence threatens child" is the alleged maltreatment most reported to the Florida Abuse Hotline every year. Childhood exposure to family violence also significantly increases the likelihood of either perpetrating or being the victim of violence as an adult. The effects of violence are visible in the burdens placed upon our health care, educational, social service, child welfare, and criminal justice systems, and in the workplace. If you know someone being abused Facebook & Twitter All Month Hubbard House of Jacksonville will take advantage of the growing use of social media to raise awareness of domestic violence and to provide useful information for the public. Hubbard House will post daily on Twitter and Facebook 31 statistics and/or blogs relating to domestic violence for the 31 days in October. Users may follow the posts to learn about domestic violence and share them with friends, family, and co-workers to help increase awareness. Those wishing to receive Domestic Violence Awareness Month 31n31 tweets, posts, and blogs, should followŽ Hubbard House on Twitter at www.twitter.com/hubbardhouse and LikeŽ Hubbard House on Facebook at www.facebook.com/hubbardhouseinc. We get a lot of positive feedback on our Facebook and Twitter postings.

Simpson First African American Inducted Into The Florida Press Hall Of Fame Congresswoman Corrine BrownOctober 12, 2011 As I'm sure you know, our economic recovery is not as strong as we need it to be. The crisis that devastated our economy didn't happen overnight, and the recovery won't either. Job creation is the most pressing issue facing the country today and the time to act is now. Therefore, I strongly support the American Jobs Act that President Obama recently submitted to Congress. It's a plan based on bi-partisan ideas that will put America back to work. Below are some highlights of what this bill will do: Rebuild Our Infrastructure Fix our roads, railroads, airports and waterways Modernize 35,000 public schools Expand access to high-speed wireless internet Cut Taxes for Workers and Businesses Cut payroll taxes in half for 160 million workers next year Cut payroll taxes in half for 98 percent of businesses Eliminate payroll taxes for added workers or increased wages Help Veterans and the Unemployed Extend unemployment insurance for Americans still looking for work Create a "Returning Heroes" hiring tax credit for veterans Provide a $4,000 tax credit to employers for hiring long-term unemployed workers Give aid to states and localities to keep teachers, police officers and firefighters on the job You can read more details at www.whitehouse.gov/jobsact. These aren't Democratic or Republican ideas „ they are simply good ideas that will put Americans back to work right away. In addition, President Obama has promised that the American Jobs Act will be fully paid by a combination of spending cuts and changes to the tax code that will force corporations and the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share. The American Jobs Act will begin the process of rebuilding our economy the American way„hard work and responsibility are rewarded, and everybody plays by the same set of rules. To share your ideas about how to get Americans working again, please contact one of my offices or visit my website, follow me on twitter or join me on facebook.

GE A-4 THE STAR OCTOBER 15, 2011 E kaabo (pronounced eh-kah-bow). Welcome.Its My Birthday! Its My Birthday! Its My Birthday! It was a busy weekend. Friday, October 7, was my birthday and I enjoyed every minute of it. Kudos to Darren, Jeannie, Whitney, Volume, Seann, and the entire Frances Bradley Extravaganza team for making this a memorable tenth year celebration. Of course, they prefer to call it the Florida Black Expo, so I indulge them. ;=D. For sure, the TALK OF THE TOWN! was the Expos Taste of Jacksonville, which was on my birthday. The Taste was a first year event for the Expo, and, by all indications, will be the party no one wants to miss in future years. Another first year event, the Recycled Fashion Show, sponsored by the Army National Guard and coordinated by Ok Sun Burks, was hugely successful. Good job to Dr. Chloe Burks, the shows producer. Congratulations to the winners, who I will reveal in next weeks pictorial of the Expo. Dont miss it! Moles Amelia Island Weekend Continued Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. TALK OF THE TOWN!s Volume Burks, wife Ok Sun, and daughter Chloe visited with family who were among the guests of the Columbia, South Carolina Chapter, The MOLES at their 36th Annual Labor Day Weekend at Amelia Island. Pentagon staffer, Captain Keith Dillard, wife Valerie (Volumes first cousin) and adorable 7-month old son, Mason were visiting from Woodbridge, Virginia. Visiting Old Friends. My mother, the late Thomasina Calhoun, had a number of close friends, who my brother and I thought of as aunts and uncles, their children, our play cousins. Two such friends were Dr. E. H Washington and his wife, Inez. Mama stood as godmother to Wash when he converted to Catholicism. Aunt Inez was one of Mamas BFFs. They called each other Birdie, which I think was a parody of the word buddy. As a child, I loved to visit the Washingtons stately home on 8th Street mostly because their youngest daughter, Cecilia Celie Washington, had a collection of dolls that intrigued me and a telescope, which, I am sure, began my interest in star-gazing. I used to think of Celie and her sister, Mary Washington, as my big sisters. I stopped by to visit with Sister (Mary), Celie, and brother, Emmet Washington, who was visiting last week from Biloxi, Mississippi. I found it fascinating that Emmett and Sister attended school away from home. They graduated from Palmer Memorial Institute, the nationally recognized preparatory school, which was located outside of Greensboro, North Carolina. What a time we had reminiscing about our families and friends! I cant wait to do it again. See you soon, Sister and Celie. Until the next time, Emmett! Tribute to a Renaissance Man. Renaissance man noun. a modern scholar who is in a position to acquire more than superficial knowledge about many different interests. This title so aptly describes Eugene Gene Hollomon, whose many affiliations demonstrate a man who is well-read and always ready to lend a helping hand. On October 1, 2011 a group of admiring friends Khamil Ojoyo, Vimilakshi Archer, Roxanne Hilbert, and Salmone hosted an evening of jazz and artistic expressions in honor of Gene. The event was held at the Karpeles Manuscript Library and Museum. Family and friends gathered to honor Hollomon who is a proud supporter and member of a number of giving organizations, i.e. the Clara White Mission, the Association for the Study of AfricanAmerican Life and History (ASALH), Toastmasters International, Learn to Read, Inc,, Friends of Bradham-Brooks Library Northwest Branch, Northside Storytellers Guild, Jacksonville Consortium of AfricanAmerican Artists (JCAAA), The Inner I Dramatic Artists, Ritz Theater and Museum, the Karpeles Manuscript Library and Museum, and Mad Dads. As a matter of fact, I thought Gene was Executive Director of the Karpeles because of his knowledge of the displays and because he was always there! Because of Genes love of the arts he has a beautiful baritone singing voice, is crazy about all things jazz, especially piano great, Errol Garner the hosts organized the evening as a jazz and variety show. Guests were treated to musical and dramatic presentations from members of Jacksonvilles arts scene, including Naim Rashid, M. C. for the evening; JuCoby Pittman Peele; Samelia Adams; Linda Witsell; Roxanne Hilbert, Asia Peeks, and many, many more. Also lending a helping hand were friends Deborah Thompson, Queenie Thompson and fellow-ASALH member, Eleanor Hughes.

Around The Area Around The Area PAGE A-6THE STAROCTOBER 15, 2011 Domestic violence plagues people all around the world. It doesnt discriminate against race, age, gender or religion. It can affect you, your family, your friends, anyone. If you see someone who shows signs of being abused, please do the right thing and report it. Its more than just physical abuse, its emotional, mental and financial, its controlling a persons life, its isolating someone from their friends and family. If you are abused in anyway, dont dismiss it, dont make up excuses for them, dont believe that its just a one time thing. If it happened once, it WILL happen again. Leave the situation, if you are scared or think theres no one there to help you, remember that there are organizations and shelters all over the world. If you suspect something, ask questions, check stories, ignorance is not bliss in this case. And remember Silence Hides Violence.

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2THE STAR OCTOBER 15, 2011 SHE DIED ALONE. When Mary was 80 years old, she was found dead in her two room shack at the dead end of a dirt street in a poor neighborhood. No one came forward to claim the remains. However, inspection revealed that Mary had over $400,000 in CDs and savings accounts and she was receiving rental income for real estate property. Instead of turning the money over to the State, the Court authorized a search for heirs. It was learned that she inherited real estate from her father and a search of his estate records revealed that Mary had a brother, who pre-deceased Mary while living in Alaska. He left his entire estate to his girlfriend, but disinherited his four children, whom he named in his will. They were the heirs of Marys estate. After en extensive three year search, they were located to receive the bounty. RESULT: those nieces and nephews received substantial assets from someone they never knew. However, they did know how to complain about the cost of her funeral and the amount of money spent searching for them. How ungrateful? Did they get more than they deserved?

The sheer amount of information can lead many of us to stick our heads in the sand and hope our genes will withstand decades of poor eating and little or no exercise. Filtering the plethora of diet information from television, books and the Internet can be overwhelming,Ž says K.C. Craichy, a leading health researcher, speaker, and consultant on optimized natural health, nutrition, and fitness. And the many dieting fads can prevent people from establishing lifelong healthy habits." Here's what you need to know about some of the most popular weight-loss programs and plans available today, according to Craichy, who has authored The Super Health Diet,Ž a new book to help people successfully navigate this maze of diets and programs. Diet Clubs We've all seen the TV commercials for weight-loss centers touting celebrity success stories. For the most part, these clubs provide a strong support network for people who have tried to lose weight on their own and failed. Many of these programs rely on a point system or pre-packaged food they sell to you. But these methods, while successful, can be hard to maintain once you are no longer in the program because they do not promote permanent lifestyle changes or teach you to prepare healthy meals on your own. Fad Diets From Atkins to The Zone to the new Macrobiotic and Vegan craze, America has rarely been without a diet fad. Many of these programs have helped people lose weight, even though they appear to give contradictory advice -one may advocate a low carbohydrate, high protein diet, while the other an average carb, low protein diet. The main reason for their success is that most Americans have unhealthy diets and overestimate portion allowances, so any restrictive diet is bound to help them lose weight. But these diets may not prepare you for optimum health and can be inconvenient to follow, especially those requiring unusual foods. The Mediterranean Diet Several decades ago, medical researchers began to take notice that people living in the Mediterranean, particularly in southern Italy and Greece, had lower rates of cardiovascular disease. They found that their diets contained low amounts of red meat, moderate levels of fish and poultry (once or twice a week), and high levels of fruits, vegetables, nuts, olive oil and legumes. Craichy says the key factors to this type of diet are the small portions, the use of omega-3 and other healthy fats like olive oil, resveratrol from grapes or red wine, and nutrient dense foods. His own suggested diet, based on years of research, emphasizes small, nutrient-dense portions, along with supplementing your diet with broad-spectrum antioxidants, minimizing sugar, and consuming high quality fats and fatty acids. To learn more about weight-loss techniques that can work for you, check out "The Super Health Diet" or visit www.LivingFuel.com. Then get started on building habits toward optimum health and long life. ULYSSES W.

The above home in Jacksonville on the river will sell at an auction through NYC based Concierge Auctions between October 29 and November 4, 2011, originally listed for $8.5 million, the starting bid is $2.495 million and the buyit-now price is $3.75 million. If you were the homeowner, would you leave since the value is down more than half of the original amount? Is the American dream of owning a home escaping us? What is going to happen to the 62 million plus American homes that are already foreclosed on, foreclosing or headed for foreclosure? How high will the final numbers rise to? Why isnt anyone doing anything about it? Whos afraid of Wall Street? Why is the heartbeat of American life being allowed to wither on the vine and die? Charles Ferguson accepting an Oscar for his documentary Inside Job, reminded us that after three years of a financial crisis caused by massive fraud, no indictments for the heist has been issued. But homeowners across these United States have had enough. Our most requested segment on the Ester Davis Show for the past four months has been on the foreclosures of homes. We have aired three separate shows, and the response from homeowners has been overwhelming. One with NACA (Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America); one with a veteran real estate broker on how to stay in your home and the final one, powerful courageous testimonies of homeowners who were in deep troubles with their homes which opened up a flood gate of disasterous far-fetched stories. Every solution was somewhat different. In listening to the homeowners there is no one size fits all. The range of variances and discrepancies is extensive. Homeowners across the country are definitely fighting back. In San Francisco recently, hundreds of angry fed up homeowners, renters, clergy stormed a major banks annual shareholders meeting demanding to talk about the failure to modify home loans and stop the foreclosures. Some modifications were taking more than two years to finalize. The homeowners alleged that some vital documents were lost, some had to be submitted three or four times. Homeowners in Florida have formed coalitions, are well organized and some of their demands have been met. There is a new program in place especially for Florida homeowners. These series of actions by homeowners have launched a national campaign. The New Bottom Line, organized by an alliance of community, faith-based and labor organizing groups. Among their requests is the return of the pocketed hundreds of millions in profits. Demonstrations are planned at other bank shareholder meetings and at banks headquarter locations. Homeowners are pointing out CEOs annual salaries at a time when families are hurting. And per one homeowners it is not an issue of business, its an issue of ethics. Look up shareholder meetings and get on board. A letter to the boards and your legislature will make a powerful statement going forward. By Ester Davis

With a title like Dirty Girl,Ž one can immediately conger up stereo-typical negative images. We all have gone to school with that one or even group of young ladies who didnt go along with the rules doing things their way. What we dont focus on is why they became morally and ethically loose in the first place. The new Weinstein Company film Dirty GirlŽ covers this aspect via the character of high school teen Danielle (played by Juno Temple). Danielle smokes, is sexually permissive and disobedient in school. She is fatherless and has never met her biological father. Danielle openly disrespects her mom Sue-Ann (played by Milla Jovovich) whom herself has a rep in the community as a reformed slutŽ from her high school cheerleading days. When Danielle is demoted to Special Ed, she gets paired with Clarke (played by Jeremy Dozier) on a project. Clarke is a piece of work himself being gay, overweight, a loner with absolutely 0Ž friends and a homophobic dad who wants to ship him off to military school. Juno Temple is a British actress who has a striking resemblance to Christina Applegate (Kelly Bundy of Married With Children fame).After her start as a child actress in her native UK Temple made her way across the pond and began appearing in movies such as Atonement,Ž Notes On A ScandalŽ The Other Boleyn GirlŽ and others. She will be seen in the upcoming epic The Three Musketeers.Ž La Porte, Texas native Jeremy Dozier makes his feature film debut with Dirty Girl.Ž Dozier is an honors grad from the U of Texas with two degrees. One in Theater and the other in Government. The two assembled together for this chat which turned into a fun gab fest! Does Temple mind being compared in looks to Ms. Applegate? She smiles, Do you think? Thats great! Shes super cute thank you. And shes really funny so thats a big compliment.Ž Being that this movie takes place in the 80s and South (Oklahoma), with Temple doing the lead, did she have a lot to learn to portray this role realistically? Temple responds, Abe (the director), so really opened our eyes to this new world that none of us had never been to. Some may have but we definitely hadnt. I mean the accents, the dancing to different tunes, the costumes. You move so differently when you are in a romp that squishes you in weird places and platform heels too. And I dont drive, so faking driving was sort of an intense thing.Ž This was Doziers first feature film yet he was so composed, natural and professional with the big name veteran actors on the set. What were his reflections going through this first one? First he thanks me for the compliment then goes on to say, It wasnt intimidating because the actors were so nice to me and so welcoming. They treated me as an equal witch was amazing being my first film; Im saying to myself real actors are treating me as an equal. Everybody kind of took me under their wing especially Juno. We met at the chemistry reading and became best friends. All of the actors were that way. I mean working with Oscar winners and Oscar nominees; it was just kind of mind blowing. It was surreal.Ž PAGE B-6 THE STAR OCTOBER 15, 2011ENTERTAINMENT Juno Temple and Jeremy Dozier Make It Fun For “Dirty Girl!”By Rych McCain, feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net and Facebook Photo Courtesy of The Weinstein Company Rych McCains Hollyhood Notes! 41st RMHNMusic: All seven original members of the legendary Minneapolis funk band formerly known as The Time,Ž now known as The Original 7ven,Ž reunited and recorded their first album in 21 years.

OCTOBER 15, 2011PREP RAP PR 2 8 tips on how to protect yourself onlineUsing the Internet can be an enjoyable and valuable experience for you and your family, as long as you do it safely and smartly. AT&T is offering the following internet safety tips to help ensure that you avoid problems: 1.Shop safely. Many online stores have the right protection for you to purchase online. Read the online store's privacy and security policies before shopping. If you plan to order from an online store, be sure that the Web site uses secure technology. When you are at the checkout screen, verify that the Web address begins with https. Also, check to see if a tiny locked padlock symbol appears at the bottom right of the checkout screen or that there is a statement on the checkout screen stating that the checkout pages are secure with a security technology vendor. Check that the security technology vendor does exist by checking the security technology company's Web site. 2.Watch out for phishing scams. Phishing scams use fraudulent emails and fake Web sites, masquerading as real businesses, to lure unsuspecting users into revealing private account or login information. To be safe, if you receive an e-mail from a business that includes a link to a Web site, make certain that the Web site you visit is legitimate. Instead of clicking through to the Web site from within the e-mail, open a separate Web browser and visit the business' Web site directly to review their information. You can also verify that an e-mail is in fact from a legitimate business by calling the business or agency directly. 3.Use e-mail wisely. E-mail is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family and as a tool to conduct business. Even if you have good security software on your computer, however, your friends and family might not have the same protection. Be careful about what information you send via e-mail. Never send your credit-card information, Social Security number, or other private information via e-mail. 4.Get an Internet Security Suite. Keep yourself and your family safe whenever you power on your computer by ensuring your computer is contains a comprehensive security software system that is always active-updating and protecting your information when you are online. These products help protect your computer from viruses, spam, spyware, malicious downloads and other internet security threats. 5.Create smart and strong passwords. Make it difficult for hackers to crack your password. You can create a smart password by incorporating capital letters, numbers and special characters, and using more than six characters. An example of a strong password is: Go1dM!n3 6.Pay attention to your children's online activities. Keep your home computer in a community area so that you can monitor their activity. Use child software that is age-appropriate. Limit your children's time spent online. Install and use parental controls software that allows you to monitor your children's activity online. This will keep your children from accessing undesirable Web sites and sharing personal information via online communications. 7.Fun and carefree online gaming. Internet games are fun for the whole family. Make sure you are careful when playing online games, especially when communicating with other players. Be sure that your security software still functions when you are in gaming mode. 8.Be smart when using instant messaging (IM) programs. If you use an IM program to communicate with friends and family, be careful about sending any personal information through online communications. Protect yourself by using a nickname for your IM screen name, so your name isn't identified through IM. Never accept strangers into your IM groups. Be smart about how you use IM at work because your employer has the right to monitor and view your messages.Think Green This Halloween A recent consumer survey from Savers Inc. showed that the average American family of four plans to spend about $300 on costumes, tricks, and treats this upcoming Halloween. Instead of breaking the bank before the shopping season begins, savvy parents can nix the store bought costume and opt for designing their own. Or, if you arent handy with the needle, you can organize a costume swap in your local community. Last years pirate costume may be your trash, but its someone elses treasure. By sending your costume to a reveler instead of the trash heap, youll be doing Mother Nature a favor as well as your pocketbook.

Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia StarOCTOBER 15 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. Shooter Arrested forAttempted MurderA man was accused for shooting a flower shop owner and stealing his car. When police arrived, they found Louis Howell III, 32, with multiple gunshot wounds at his business. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was listed to be in critical condition. The motives for the shooting are unknown, but police believe it started from a struggle between Howell and 20-year-old, Robert Lee Williams. Both are also said to have known each other prior to the shooting. The vehicle of the florist was also not at the scene. Police said the shooter drove off with the victims car after the shooting and the vehicle was listed as stolen. Enough evidence was gathered to identify the suspect as Williams and police began to search for him. Williams turned himself in two days later after the incident with Howells vehicle. He was arrested for attempted murder, armed robbery, and tampering with evidence. RobertLee Williams Man Gets Arrested for Shoplifting Leading to His 100th ArrestA 50-year-old man was arrested for the 100th time after shoplifting at a store for underwear and socks. A security guard from a department store called the cops after seeingJoseph Wilson stuff underwear and socks under his clothing valuing up to about $174. He then walked out of the store and left, but everything was caught on surveillance cameras. When police arrived, Wilson jumped into a white van and told the driver to take off. The driver of the van was actually a friend of Wilson who was waiting for him. But instead of doing as he was told, he shut the van off. So then Wilson got back out of the vehicle from the other side and started to run. Wilson managed to outrun the police until he became tired and decided to hide. A witness called 911 and reported seeing a man running and hiding behind a dumpster and some bushes near by a Wendys. He was also seen taking his shirt and sweat pants off, but he was still in his white tank top and black shorts. When authorities arrived, they found Wilson covered in sweat. After being confronted, he told police that he was just out jogging and was resting behind the dumpster because it was cool there. He eventually ended up telling them that he was going through hard times after they saw the socks and underwear he had stolen. This arrest marks his 100th arrest. His prior arrests includes 37 felonies (6 convictions), 47 misdemeanors (26 convictions), and 15 other unknown charges (3 convictions). Out of those arrests, hes been convicted 35 times, said police. Wilson is charged with petit theft and resisting recovery of property. He is in jail and is being held on $20,000 bond. Joseph Wilson

Protect Your Vehicle € Lock your car and pocket the key when you leave„even if just for a minute. Close windows all the way and make sure the trunk is locked. € Control your keys.

Important identification papers or credit cards should never be left in the glove compartment. € If carrying packages or valuable items, store them in your trunk if possible. If you do leave packages, clothing or other articles in the car, make sure they are out of sight. € Park in well-lit, busy areas. Avoid leaving your vehicle in unattended parking lots for long periods of time. If you park in a lot where you must leave a key, leave the ignition key only, to protect items in trunk or glove box. € When buying a car, ask about anti-theft options such as steering column locks, alarms, switches that interrupt the fuel or electronic systems, and locks for tape decks, batteries and gas tanks.

Woman Cuts Child from Womb After Killing Pregnant Woman and Calls it her Own Milwaukee, WIAnnette Morales-Rodriguez was desperate to have a baby with her new boyfriend and decided to look for a pregnant woman to steal a child from. While she was driving in her car, she offered a ride to a pregnant woman who was a total stranger to her named Maritza Ramirez-Cruz, 23. Cruz was expecting her fourth child who she planned to name Omar. Rodriguez took Cruz to her home saying that she had to change her shoes. Cruz went in with her to use the bathroom. When Cruz came out of the toilet, Rodriguez started striking her in the head with a bat multiple times. She then choked her until she passed out and attempted a Cesarean section she saw from the Discovery Channel. When she was done, she hid the body in her basement. Emergency services responded to a call from Rodriguez about her giving birth to a child that was not breathing. Paramedics came and tried to revive the baby, but the baby was pronounced dead at the scene. Rodriguez was then taken to the hospital after an autopsy of the baby. Medical examinations showed that she was not recently pregnant at all and that she had not given birth. Investigations led police to believe that Rodriguez was not the mother of the baby and decided to inspect her home where they found the body of Cruz. Rodriguez was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide while armed and first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child while armed.She is being held on $1 million bail.

The men stole $300 from the victim. The gunshot was heard along with the victim yelling for help. The victim lost the sight in his right eye from the shot. Police found a cell phone at the scene, which belonged to 21-year-old, Johnny Lee Walker. Numerous pictures of Walker and text messages about the $300 drug deal were found on the phone, which provided police with more than enough evidence needed to identify one of the suspects. Police were able to track down Walker. The car was also found with blood on the seat where the victim was sitting. Walker was arrested and charged with robbery with a firearm and an attempted murder charge. Sometimes it helps when the bad guys arent very smart,Ž said police.

Joe Jesus German, 19, was reported breaking into numerous vehicles and stealing property from them. The burglary came to a halt when German decided to take a break in the back of a white Infinity, according to the report. Instead of a short nap, German fell into a deep sleep.

Four days later, Barney went to his girlfriends house while she was sleeping and decided to hold her captive in her own home for the next two months. She was forced to stay in her room and was only allowed to go to certain places in the house, such as the restroom, when given permission.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE: 1-800-500-1119What is Domestic Violence? Domestic violence is a pattern of behaviors that adults or adolescents use against their intimate partners or former partners to establish power and control. It may include physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and economic abuse. It may also include threats, isolation, pet abuse, using children and a variety of other behaviors used to maintain fear, intimidation and power over one's partner. Domestic violence knows no boundaries. It occurs in intimate relationships, regardless of race, religion, culture or socioeconomic status. Child abuse is also prevalent and often occurs in the same families as domestic violence. Research indicates, as well, that merely witnessing domestic violence can have profound effects on children. Childhood exposure to domestic violence is associated with increased aggression, depression and anxiety, lower levels of social competence, and poorer academic functioning. Next to substance misuse, "Family violence threatens child" is the alleged maltreatment most reported to the Florida Abuse Hotline every year. Childhood exposure to family violence also significantly increases the likelihood of either perpetrating or being the victim of violence as an adult. The effects of violence are visible in the burdens placed upon our health care, educational, social service, child welfare, and criminal justice systems, and in the workplace. If you know someone being abused Facebook & Twitter All Month Hubbard House of Jacksonville will take advantage of the growing use of social media to raise awareness of domestic violence and to provide useful information for the public. Hubbard House will post daily on Twitter and Facebook 31 statistics and/or blogs relating to domestic violence for the 31 days in October. Users may follow the posts to learn about domestic violence and share them with friends, family, and co-workers to help increase awareness. Those wishing to receive Domestic Violence Awareness Month 31n31 tweets, posts, and blogs, should follow Hubbard House on Twitter at www.twitter.com/hubbardhouse and Like Hubbard House on Facebook at www.facebook.com/hubbardhouseinc. We get a lot of positive feedback on our Facebook and Twitter postings. This is an excellent way to reach people with information they can easily share with others, said Ellen Siler, CEO of Hubbard House.

Simpson First African American Inducted Into The Florida Press Hall Of Fame Congresswoman Corrine BrownOctober 12, 2011 As I'm sure you know, our economic recovery is not as strong as we need it to be. The crisis that devastated our economy didn't happen overnight, and the recovery won't either. Job creation is the most pressing issue facing the country today and the time to act is now. Therefore, I strongly support the American Jobs Act that President Obama recently submitted to Congress. It's a plan based on bi-partisan ideas that will put America back to work. Below are some highlights of what this bill will do: Rebuild Our Infrastructure Fix our roads, railroads, airports and waterways Modernize 35,000 public schools Expand access to high-speed wireless internet Cut Taxes for Workers and Businesses Cut payroll taxes in half for 160 million workers next year Cut payroll taxes in half for 98 percent of businesses Eliminate payroll taxes for added workers or increased wages Help Veterans and the Unemployed Extend unemployment insurance for Americans still looking for work Create a "Returning Heroes" hiring tax credit for veterans Provide a $4,000 tax credit to employers for hiring long-term unemployed workers Give aid to states and localities to keep teachers, police officers and firefighters on the job You can read more details at www.whitehouse.gov/jobsact. These aren't Democratic or Republican ideas they are simply good ideas that will put Americans back to work right away. In addition, President Obama has promised that the American Jobs Act will be fully paid by a combination of spending cuts and changes to the tax code that will force corporations and the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share. The American Jobs Act will begin the process of rebuilding our economy the American wayhard work and responsibility are rewarded, and everybody plays by the same set of rules. To share your ideas about how to get Americans working again, please contact one of my offices or visit my website, follow me on twitter or join me on facebook.

GE A-4 THE STAR OCTOBER 15, 2011 E kaabo (pronounced eh-kah-bow). Welcome.Its My Birthday! Its My Birthday! Its My Birthday! It was a busy weekend. Friday, October 7, was my birthday and I enjoyed every minute of it. Kudos to Darren, Jeannie, Whitney, Volume, Seann, and the entire Frances Bradley Extravaganza team for making this a memorable tenth year celebration. Of course, they prefer to call it the Florida Black Expo, so I indulge them. ;=D. For sure, the TALK OF THE TOWN! was the Expos Taste of Jacksonville, which was on my birthday. The Taste was a first year event for the Expo, and, by all indications, will be the party no one wants to miss in future years. Another first year event, the Recycled Fashion Show, sponsored by the Army National Guard and coordinated by Ok Sun Burks, was hugely successful. Good job to Dr. Chloe Burks, the shows producer. Congratulations to the winners, who I will reveal in next weeks pictorial of the Expo. Dont miss it! Moles Amelia Island Weekend Continued Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. TALK OF THE TOWN!s Volume Burks, wife Ok Sun, and daughter Chloe visited with family who were among the guests of the Columbia, South Carolina Chapter, The MOLES at their 36th Annual Labor Day Weekend at Amelia Island. Pentagon staffer, Captain Keith Dillard, wife Valerie (Volumes first cousin) and adorable 7-month old son, Mason were visiting from Woodbridge, Virginia. Visiting Old Friends. My mother, the late Thomasina Calhoun, had a number of close friends, who my brother and I thought of as aunts and uncles, their children, our play cousins. Two such friends were Dr. E. H Washington and his wife, Inez. Mama stood as godmother to Wash when he converted to Catholicism. Aunt Inez was one of Mamas BFFs. They called each other Birdie, which I think was a parody of the word buddy. As a child, I loved to visit the Washingtons stately home on 8th Street mostly because their youngest daughter, Cecilia Celie Washington, had a collection of dolls that intrigued me and a telescope, which, I am sure, began my interest in star-gazing. I used to think of Celie and her sister, Mary Washington, as my big sisters. I stopped by to visit with Sister (Mary), Celie, and brother, Emmet Washington, who was visiting last week from Biloxi, Mississippi. I found it fascinating that Emmett and Sister attended school away from home. They graduated from Palmer Memorial Institute, the nationally recognized preparatory school, which was located outside of Greensboro, North Carolina. What a time we had reminiscing about our families and friends! I cant wait to do it again. See you soon, Sister and Celie. Until the next time, Emmett! Tribute to a Renaissance Man. Renaissance man noun. a modern scholar who is in a position to acquire more than superficial knowledge about many different interests. This title so aptly describes Eugene Gene Hollomon, whose many affiliations demonstrate a man who is well-read and always ready to lend a helping hand. On October 1, 2011 a group of admiring friends Khamil Ojoyo, Vimilakshi Archer, Roxanne Hilbert, and Salmone hosted an evening of jazz and artistic expressions in honor of Gene. The event was held at the Karpeles Manuscript Library and Museum. Family and friends gathered to honor Hollomon who is a proud supporter and member of a number of giving organizations, i.e. the Clara White Mission, the Association for the Study of AfricanAmerican Life and History (ASALH), Toastmasters International, Learn to Read, Inc,, Friends of Bradham-Brooks Library Northwest Branch, Northside Storytellers Guild, Jacksonville Consortium of AfricanAmerican Artists (JCAAA), The Inner I Dramatic Artists, Ritz Theater and Museum, the Karpeles Manuscript Library and Museum, and Mad Dads. As a matter of fact, I thought Gene was Executive Director of the Karpeles because of his knowledge of the displays and because he was always there! Because of Genes love of the arts he has a beautiful baritone singing voice, is crazy about all things jazz, especially piano great, Errol Garner the hosts organized the evening as a jazz and variety show. Guests were treated to musical and dramatic presentations from members of Jacksonvilles arts scene, including Naim Rashid, M. C. for the evening; JuCoby Pittman Peele; Samelia Adams; Linda Witsell; Roxanne Hilbert, Asia Peeks, and many, many more. Also lending a helping hand were friends Deborah Thompson, Queenie Thompson and fellow-ASALH member, Eleanor Hughes.

Around The Area Around The Area PAGE A-6 THE STAR OCTOBER 15, 2011 Domestic violence plagues people all around the world. It doesnt discriminate against race, age, gender or religion. It can affect you, your family, your friends, anyone. If you see someone who shows signs of being abused, please do the right thing and report it. Its more than just physical abuse, its emotional, mental and financial, its controlling a persons life, its isolating someone from their friends and family. If you are abused in anyway, dont dismiss it, dont make up excuses for them, dont believe that its just a one time thing. If it happened once, it WILL happen again. Leave the situation, if you are scared or think theres no one there to help you, remember that there are organizations and shelters all over the world. If you suspect something, ask questions, check stories, ignorance is not bliss in this case. And remember Silence Hides Violence.

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2 THE STAR OCTOBER 15, 2011 SHE DIED ALONE. When Mary was 80 years old, she was found dead in her two room shack at the dead end of a dirt street in a poor neighborhood. No one came forward to claim the remains. However, inspection revealed that Mary had over $400,000 in CDs and savings accounts and she was receiving rental income for real estate property. Instead of turning the money over to the State, the Court authorized a search for heirs. It was learned that she inherited real estate from her father and a search of his estate records revealed that Mary had a brother, who pre-deceased Mary while living in Alaska. He left his entire estate to his girlfriend, but disinherited his four children, whom he named in his will. They were the heirs of Marys estate. After en extensive three year search, they were located to receive the bounty. RESULT: those nieces and nephews received substantial assets from someone they never knew. However, they did know how to complain about the cost of her funeral and the amount of money spent searching for them. How ungrateful? Did they get more than they deserved?

The sheer amount of information can lead many of us to stick our heads in the sand and hope our genes will withstand decades of poor eating and little or no exercise. Filtering the plethora of diet information from television, books and the Internet can be overwhelming, says K.C. Craichy, a leading health researcher, speaker, and consultant on optimized natural health, nutrition, and fitness. And the many dieting fads can prevent people from establishing lifelong healthy habits." Here's what you need to know about some of the most popular weight-loss programs and plans available today, according to Craichy, who has authored The Super Health Diet, a new book to help people successfully navigate this maze of diets and programs. Diet Clubs We've all seen the TV commercials for weight-loss centers touting celebrity success stories. For the most part, these clubs provide a strong support network for people who have tried to lose weight on their own and failed. Many of these programs rely on a point system or pre-packaged food they sell to you. But these methods, while successful, can be hard to maintain once you are no longer in the program because they do not promote permanent lifestyle changes or teach you to prepare healthy meals on your own. Fad Diets From Atkins to The Zone to the new Macrobiotic and Vegan craze, America has rarely been without a diet fad. Many of these programs have helped people lose weight, even though they appear to give contradictory advice -one may advocate a low carbohydrate, high protein diet, while the other an average carb, low protein diet. The main reason for their success is that most Americans have unhealthy diets and overestimate portion allowances, so any restrictive diet is bound to help them lose weight. But these diets may not prepare you for optimum health and can be inconvenient to follow, especially those requiring unusual foods. The Mediterranean Diet Several decades ago, medical researchers began to take notice that people living in the Mediterranean, particularly in southern Italy and Greece, had lower rates of cardiovascular disease. They found that their diets contained low amounts of red meat, moderate levels of fish and poultry (once or twice a week), and high levels of fruits, vegetables, nuts, olive oil and legumes. Craichy says the key factors to this type of diet are the small portions, the use of omega-3 and other healthy fats like olive oil, resveratrol from grapes or red wine, and nutrient dense foods. His own suggested diet, based on years of research, emphasizes small, nutrient-dense portions, along with supplementing your diet with broad-spectrum antioxidants, minimizing sugar, and consuming high quality fats and fatty acids. To learn more about weight-loss techniques that can work for you, check out "The Super Health Diet" or visit www.LivingFuel.com. Then get started on building habits toward optimum health and long life. ULYSSES W.

The above home in Jacksonville on the river will sell at an auction through NYC based Concierge Auctions between October 29 and November 4, 2011, originally listed for $8.5 million, the starting bid is $2.495 million and the buyit-now price is $3.75 million. If you were the homeowner, would you leave since the value is down more than half of the original amount? Is the American dream of owning a home escaping us? What is going to happen to the 62 million plus American homes that are already foreclosed on, foreclosing or headed for foreclosure? How high will the final numbers rise to? Why isnt anyone doing anything about it? Whos afraid of Wall Street? Why is the heartbeat of American life being allowed to wither on the vine and die? Charles Ferguson accepting an Oscar for his documentary Inside Job, reminded us that after three years of a financial crisis caused by massive fraud, no indictments for the heist has been issued. But homeowners across these United States have had enough. Our most requested segment on the Ester Davis Show for the past four months has been on the foreclosures of homes. We have aired three separate shows, and the response from homeowners has been overwhelming. One with NACA (Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America); one with a veteran real estate broker on how to stay in your home and the final one, powerful courageous testimonies of homeowners who were in deep troubles with their homes which opened up a flood gate of disasterous far-fetched stories. Every solution was somewhat different. In listening to the homeowners there is no one size fits all. The range of variances and discrepancies is extensive. Homeowners across the country are definitely fighting back. In San Francisco recently, hundreds of angry fed up homeowners, renters, clergy stormed a major banks annual shareholders meeting demanding to talk about the failure to modify home loans and stop the foreclosures. Some modifications were taking more than two years to finalize. The homeowners alleged that some vital documents were lost, some had to be submitted three or four times. Homeowners in Florida have formed coalitions, are well organized and some of their demands have been met. There is a new program in place especially for Florida homeowners. These series of actions by homeowners have launched a national campaign. The New Bottom Line, organized by an alliance of community, faith-based and labor organizing groups. Among their requests is the return of the pocketed hundreds of millions in profits. Demonstrations are planned at other bank shareholder meetings and at banks headquarter locations. Homeowners are pointing out CEOs annual salaries at a time when families are hurting. And per one homeowners it is not an issue of business, its an issue of ethics. Look up shareholder meetings and get on board. A letter to the boards and your legislature will make a powerful statement going forward. By Ester Davis

With a title like Dirty Girl, one can immediately conger up stereo-typical negative images. We all have gone to school with that one or even group of young ladies who didnt go along with the rules doing things their way. What we dont focus on is why they became morally and ethically loose in the first place. The new Weinstein Company film Dirty Girl covers this aspect via the character of high school teen Danielle (played by Juno Temple). Danielle smokes, is sexually permissive and disobedient in school. She is fatherless and has never met her biological father. Danielle openly disrespects her mom Sue-Ann (played by Milla Jovovich) whom herself has a rep in the community as a reformed slut from her high school cheerleading days. When Danielle is demoted to Special Ed, she gets paired with Clarke (played by Jeremy Dozier) on a project. Clarke is a piece of work himself being gay, overweight, a loner with absolutely friends and a homophobic dad who wants to ship him off to military school. Juno Temple is a British actress who has a striking resemblance to Christina Applegate (Kelly Bundy of Married With Children fame).After her start as a child actress in her native UK Temple made her way across the pond and began appearing in movies such as Atonement, Notes On A Scandal The Other Boleyn Girl and others. She will be seen in the upcoming epic The Three Musketeers. La Porte, Texas native Jeremy Dozier makes his feature film debut with Dirty Girl. Dozier is an honors grad from the U of Texas with two degrees. One in Theater and the other in Government. The two assembled together for this chat which turned into a fun gab fest! Does Temple mind being compared in looks to Ms. Applegate? She smiles, Do you think? Thats great! Shes super cute thank you. And shes really funny so thats a big compliment. Being that this movie takes place in the 80s and South (Oklahoma), with Temple doing the lead, did she have a lot to learn to portray this role realistically? Temple responds, Abe (the director), so really opened our eyes to this new world that none of us had never been to. Some may have but we definitely hadnt. I mean the accents, the dancing to different tunes, the costumes. You move so differently when you are in a romp that squishes you in weird places and platform heels too. And I dont drive, so faking driving was sort of an intense thing. This was Doziers first feature film yet he was so composed, natural and professional with the big name veteran actors on the set. What were his reflections going through this first one? First he thanks me for the compliment then goes on to say, It wasnt intimidating because the actors were so nice to me and so welcoming. They treated me as an equal witch was amazing being my first film; Im saying to myself real actors are treating me as an equal. Everybody kind of took me under their wing especially Juno. We met at the chemistry reading and became best friends. All of the actors were that way. I mean working with Oscar winners and Oscar nominees; it was just kind of mind blowing. It was surreal.

OCTOBER 15, 2011 PREP RAP PR 2 8 tips on how to protect yourself onlineUsing the Internet can be an enjoyable and valuable experience for you and your family, as long as you do it safely and smartly. AT&T is offering the following internet safety tips to help ensure that you avoid problems: 1.Shop safely. Many online stores have the right protection for you to purchase online. Read the online store's privacy and security policies before shopping. If you plan to order from an online store, be sure that the Web site uses secure technology. When you are at the checkout screen, verify that the Web address begins with https. Also, check to see if a tiny locked padlock symbol appears at the bottom right of the checkout screen or that there is a statement on the checkout screen stating that the checkout pages are secure with a security technology vendor. Check that the security technology vendor does exist by checking the security technology company's Web site. 2.Watch out for phishing scams. Phishing scams use fraudulent emails and fake Web sites, masquerading as real businesses, to lure unsuspecting users into revealing private account or login information. To be safe, if you receive an e-mail from a business that includes a link to a Web site, make certain that the Web site you visit is legitimate. Instead of clicking through to the Web site from within the e-mail, open a separate Web browser and visit the business' Web site directly to review their information. You can also verify that an e-mail is in fact from a legitimate business by calling the business or agency directly. 3.Use e-mail wisely. E-mail is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family and as a tool to conduct business. Even if you have good security software on your computer, however, your friends and family might not have the same protection. Be careful about what information you send via e-mail. Never send your credit-card information, Social Security number, or other private information via e-mail. 4.Get an Internet Security Suite. Keep yourself and your family safe whenever you power on your computer by ensuring your computer is contains a comprehensive security software system that is always active-updating and protecting your information when you are online. These products help protect your computer from viruses, spam, spyware, malicious downloads and other internet security threats. 5.Create smart and strong passwords. Make it difficult for hackers to crack your password. You can create a smart password by incorporating capital letters, numbers and special characters, and using more than six characters. An example of a strong password is: Go1dM!n3 6.Pay attention to your children's online activities. Keep your home computer in a community area so that you can monitor their activity. Use child software that is age-appropriate. Limit your children's time spent online. Install and use parental controls software that allows you to monitor your children's activity online. This will keep your children from accessing undesirable Web sites and sharing personal information via online communications. 7.Fun and carefree online gaming. Internet games are fun for the whole family. Make sure you are careful when playing online games, especially when communicating with other players. Be sure that your security software still functions when you are in gaming mode. 8.Be smart when using instant messaging (IM) programs. If you use an IM program to communicate with friends and family, be careful about sending any personal information through online communications. Protect yourself by using a nickname for your IM screen name, so your name isn't identified through IM. Never accept strangers into your IM groups. Be smart about how you use IM at work because your employer has the right to monitor and view your messages.Think Green This Halloween A recent consumer survey from Savers Inc. showed that the average American family of four plans to spend about $300 on costumes, tricks, and treats this upcoming Halloween. Instead of breaking the bank before the shopping season begins, savvy parents can nix the store bought costume and opt for designing their own. Or, if you arent handy with the needle, you can organize a costume swap in your local community. Last years pirate costume may be your trash, but its someone elses treasure. By sending your costume to a reveler instead of the trash heap, youll be doing Mother Nature a favor as well as your pocketbook.

Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia StarOCTOBER 15 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. Shooter Arrested forAttempted MurderA man was accused for shooting a flower shop owner and stealing his car. When police arrived, they found Louis Howell III, 32, with multiple gunshot wounds at his business. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was listed to be in critical condition. The motives for the shooting are unknown, but police believe it started from a struggle between Howell and 20-year-old, Robert Lee Williams. Both are also said to have known each other prior to the shooting. The vehicle of the florist was also not at the scene. Police said the shooter drove off with the victims car after the shooting and the vehicle was listed as stolen. Enough evidence was gathered to identify the suspect as Williams and police began to search for him. Williams turned himself in two days later after the incident with Howells vehicle. He was arrested for attempted murder, armed robbery, and tampering with evidence. RobertLee Williams Man Gets Arrested for Shoplifting Leading to His 100th ArrestA 50-year-old man was arrested for the 100th time after shoplifting at a store for underwear and socks. A security guard from a department store called the cops after seeingJoseph Wilson stuff underwear and socks under his clothing valuing up to about $174. He then walked out of the store and left, but everything was caught on surveillance cameras. When police arrived, Wilson jumped into a white van and told the driver to take off. The driver of the van was actually a friend of Wilson who was waiting for him. But instead of doing as he was told, he shut the van off. So then Wilson got back out of the vehicle from the other side and started to run. Wilson managed to outrun the police until he became tired and decided to hide. A witness called 911 and reported seeing a man running and hiding behind a dumpster and some bushes near by a Wendys. He was also seen taking his shirt and sweat pants off, but he was still in his white tank top and black shorts. When authorities arrived, they found Wilson covered in sweat. After being confronted, he told police that he was just out jogging and was resting behind the dumpster because it was cool there. He eventually ended up telling them that he was going through hard times after they saw the socks and underwear he had stolen. This arrest marks his 100th arrest. His prior arrests includes 37 felonies (6 convictions), 47 misdemeanors (26 convictions), and 15 other unknown charges (3 convictions). Out of those arrests, hes been convicted 35 times, said police. Wilson is charged with petit theft and resisting recovery of property. He is in jail and is being held on $20,000 bond. Joseph Wilson

OCTOBER 15, 2011 THE STAR C&J 2 SSSHH! From Actual Police ReportsDid You Hear About?... Did You Hear About?... EDITORS NOTE: All suspects are deemed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. Protect Your Vehicle Lock your car and pocket the key when you leaveeven if just for a minute. Close windows all the way and make sure the trunk is locked. Control your keys. Never leave an identification tag on your key ring. If your keys are lost or stolen, it should help a thief locate your car and burglarize your home. Don't leave your registration inside your vehicle; carry it with you. Important identification papers or credit cards should never be left in the glove compartment. If carrying packages or valuable items, store them in your trunk if possible. If you do leave packages, clothing or other articles in the car, make sure they are out of sight. Park in well-lit, busy areas. Avoid leaving your vehicle in unattended parking lots for long periods of time. If you park in a lot where you must leave a key, leave the ignition key only, to protect items in trunk or glove box. When buying a car, ask about anti-theft options such as steering column locks, alarms, switches that interrupt the fuel or electronic systems, and locks for tape decks, batteries and gas tanks. Many insurance companies offer reduced rates to owners who install security devices. Keep your car's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and a complete description in a safe place at home. Since 1969, the federal government has required manufacturers to engrave a unique number, the VIN, on all passenger cars in one visible and several hidden locations. One VIN is engraved on a metal plate on the dashboard near the windshield. VINs of stolen cars are registered with the FBI's National Crime Information Center.

Police discovered the body of Alford with the help of an anonymous tip in a shallow grave in the backyard of a house. The house belonged to Louis Ortiz, who police believe was the boyfriend of Alford. They believe the murder may have been a result of a fight that occurred between the couple.

Its believed that the body was there for two or three days. The grave was discovered by a neighbor, which was later reported to police. She was a nice person, a sweet young lady. She seemed to be happy about being pregnant. I was happy for her, said a neighbor of Alford. Investigators dont know the motive for the murder.
