Ask Mrs. Arnetta Jackson about Pearl Harbor and she will tell you about her brother who was over there and the birth of her daughter the following day as the paper boy walked down the street saying Read all about it.Ž A judge approved a $100 million lawsuit against Beyonce in which the pop superstar is accused of "double-crossing" a video game maker after she inked a deal with the company to produce a game based on her. The singer made a request to toss the suit filed by Gate Five, but a New York judge denied her request yesterday, giving the go-ahead for the company to pursue their case against her, the New York Daily News reports. By Farris LongWhen it comes to good wholesome family entertainment in the city, Jacksonville Giants games are the place to be! With contests like Dance For Your DinnerŽ and the $10,000 half court shotŽ Giants games are fun for all! People frequently tout the Jaguars ticket prices and their losing record as reasons that they do not fill the stands. The Giants are the polar opposite! Ticket prices are very affordable (starting as low as $10), and hats off to head coach and GM Coach Kevin Waters for leading the team to an undefeated regular season and being ranked as number 3 in the nation in their inaugural season. The Giants are back for their second season here in the river city, and it is obvious that they are READY TO PLAY. Although, they brought back 7 of last year's key players. (Antonio Lawrence, Matt Fields, Anthony Lumpkin, Renaldo Norman, Nick Wallery, and Jermaine Bell, and Sherod Hot RodŽ Harris) the rest of the team is brand new to the Jacksonville ABA team. This year's team lacks some of the cohesiveness shown by last year's Giants squad. Their opponent in the season opener, the Gulf Coast Flash, presented a formidable challenge. At one point the Giants carried a double digit lead over the flash, but a number of turn overs by the Giants in the third and fourth quarters, cost them the lead. At the close of the fourth quarter, the tension was at a gut-wrenching high as the Giants were down 115-113 with three seconds left and the ball being thrown in from the far end of the court. Last season, the Giants went undefeated in the regular season. A loss on their home court in the first game of the season would have been devastating. But, in those final 3 seconds former NBA player Christian Laettner threw a pass to Mike Polyte who then turned the ball over to Currye Todd. Todd put the ball in the air, from behind the three point line just as the buzzer sounded. In that nail-biting moment, Giants fans were on the edge of their seat. Tension turned to screams of celebration at the sound of the swoosh. Currye Todd's shot was good -bringing the final score to 116-115. The next game is scheduled for December 14th at the UNF arena. Since the last teen pregnancy study was conducted nearly 30 years ago by JCCI that resulted in the establishment of The Bridge of Northeast Florida (recommendation of a model multi-service teen center), teen birth rates have declined. Yet, area teens continue to give birth at a higher rate than teens throughout the state and nation, according to the new Task Force report … Preventing Teen Pregnancy in Northeast Florida. Several organizations are coming together to form a task force to educate teens regarding pregnancy and STDs. Presently 78% of Baker County teens had babies and 36.5% of Jacksonville teens had babies. About 18% of these young mothers had another child by 19 years of age. Youth still identify communications with parents as critical influence on sexual behavior. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overruled scientists at the Food and Drug Administration who were preparing to let Plan B sell without a prescription to people of any age. Sebelius decided that young girls shouldn't be able to buy the pill on their own. Plan B is a pill that can prevent pregnancy if taken soon enough after unprotected sex. Many are equally concerned about the many diseases that can be transferred, mainly HIV/AIDS. A recent story in Essence Magazine told of a university student who knew he was HIV positive but had unprotected sex with several female students without telling them of his medical condition. Florida also has a high HIV/AIDS population among African Americans with a high percentage of Black women dying from the disease. Robert Fleming Bradwell III 08/08/1982.

On Thursday, JTAs board approved an increase in fares, changing the base rate from $1 to $1.50 and the reduced rate from 25 cents to eventually 75 cents. Their discussion regarding fare price for the disabled was deferred.

When The World Goes Crazy On Your Cell PhoneBy Daris HowardI think that my cell phone must be reincarnated from a past life, because I am supposedly the first owner of the given number and yet have received some very strange calls. Perhaps it is simply because it is two digits in alternating sequence and easy to hit. What I do know is that the calls I have received are bizarre enough that people might feel I am making this up. I might exaggerate a little at times, but some times the truth is much stranger than fiction, and this is even too strange for me to make up. Oh, I receive the usual calls from little kids who think they have punched their dads phone number, but recently the strangeness has escalated. Just last week I received a call from a lady. Roger,Ž she said, if you think you can just dump me this way youll be sorry.Ž Im sorry,Ž I said, but youve got the wrong number.Ž Her anger was evident as she responded. Oh, you think youre so cute playing these little mind games, but you cant fool me, you big jerk.Ž No, Im serious,Ž I told her. You have the wrong number.Ž At this she started to cry. You are such a big liar! You dont care about anybody but yourself!Ž I consider trying to ease the tension by pretending I was Roger and saying something funny like, Hey, Im not as big a liar as I used to be now that Im on the Atkins Diet,Ž but somehow I didnt think she was in the mood to be teased and besides, Roger might be some guy that was roughly the size of a gorilla, so I again gently tried to tell her she had the wrong number. Okay,Ž she yells, just be that way! You wait until I get hold of you!Ž With that she hung up making me feel like a real heel and appreciative of the fact my name wasnt Roger. I didnt think the calls could get any stranger, but I got two incredibly weird calls a day apart. The first was from a man whos phone number indicated he was from a big city back east. He called me Jeff and before I could say a word he started giving me some very critical and confidential information on a big company and its internal problems. When he finally stopped to ask my advice I was tempted to advise him to sell any stock he had, but instead I told him he had the wrong number. Arent you, Jeff?Ž he asked. I told him I wasnt. Are you sure?Ž he responded. I checked in the mirror and then assured him I wasnt. Dont you work for BIG COMPANY?Ž he queried further. I told him I didnt. At that point, due to things that have been going on in board rooms lately, especially at HP, I thought he might respond, Oh great! Now Im going to have to kill you!Ž Instead he just cussed and hung up. I thought I had pretty much received my lifetime allotment of strange phone calls, when the next afternoon I received a call. I looked at the number and it was a strange long number very long, perhaps originating in a foreign country. When I answered it a lady with a strong, unfamiliar accent responded. Ello. I call about you pet rhino.Ž I dont have a pet rhino,Ž I told her. Then why you say you do?Ž I didnt say I do.Ž Oh, sure, you think funny go post ad for pet rhino when you no have one.Ž I didnt post an ad for a pet rhino.Ž You, fink I stupid or something?Ž I was beginning to think that might be the first thing she got right in our whole conversation, but I didnt like the tone of the conversation or where it was heading, so I tried to inform her she had the wrong number. Ya, right, you no fool me!Ž she said angrily and hung up. Now every time my phone rings I warily look at the number. I dont know a lot of things, but I do know a company whose stock I dont plan to invest in. I also know that, Roger if youre listening, you might want to skip the country. Perhaps, if you have a pet rhino, I know a number you can call and they might hide you.

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2THE STAR DECEMBER 10, 2011 HE FELT UNAPPRECIATED. Remember Fred, the Ladies ManŽ, who had three wives and no divorces with two of them living at the time of his death? Fred spent 23 years with Angel supporting her and her three children. When his 26 year old step-daughter attempted to move back home with her two children, a big argument ensued and she reminded him that he was not her father. Brokenhearted, he left and Angel knew that he was not coming back. At age 53, with no skills and his only experience was picking fruits and vegetables, he felt that life had more to offer and that he should be more appreciated. In Georgia he married Betsy, but she had a similar situation with four teenage children and he did not want to be hurt. As soon as he had enough money, he moved to South Florida where he hit the jackpot. There he met Carolyn, a recently widowed and retired school teacher who had a lovely home that was paid for and a steady retirement income. For the first time in his life, Fred felt appreciated. He married Carolyn and lived happily until the time of his death. Freds actions only constituted his efforts to seek a better life and while he hurt a few people along the way, he was basically a kind hearted person.

While most jobs these days arent hazardous, repetitive stress injuries are common amongst even the most sedentary of workers. While your day at work is unavoidable, the resulting aches and pains in your neck, back or hands are not. Changing your telephone and computer habits, giving your work station an ergonomic tune-up, and taking breaks for stretching can go a long way to prevent injury and reduce discomfort. Our bodies are made to move -not to maintain the same position or posture for long periods of time or to repeat the same motions endlessly.Ž says Dr. Rick McMichael, president of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). By following these tips from the experts at the ACA you can keep your days relatively pain-free: At Your Computer Do you slouch when you read? Dont break your back when you can break a bad habit instead. Work on maintaining proper posture at your desk and remember to get up and move around regularly. If your wrist is sore, you may be relying on it too much to move your mouse. Use your entire arm and shoulder instead. When typing, keep your wrists straight, your shoulders perpendicular to the floor and your forearms parallel to the floor. Using Your Mobile Device Your texting addiction could be the cause of major pain, as our thumbs were not made for constant tapping, flicking and clicking. Damaged soft tissue in your thumbs is nothing to LOL about. Abbreviate where possible, and learn to take a day off from checking messages. If you must text, alternate using your thumb, index finger and a stylus, if available. Even talkers can fall into bad habits, such as pinching the phone between the ear and shoulder, and leaning on a flexed elbow. Invest in a headset and be mindful of your telephone posture. Get Checked If youre experiencing any painful symptoms, get help. Doctors of chiropractic can counsel you on modifications to your work station that improve your posture and work habits. DCs also use a variety of non-drug, non-surgical approaches to help with common aches and pains. Keep an eye on your kids, as well. At least 70 percent of Americas 30 million elementary school students now use computers. As a result, doctors of chiropractic are treating more young patients suffering from the effects of working at computer stations that are either designed for adults or poorly designed for children. For more tips on using technology safely, visit www.technohealthy.com. Remember, your body has a lifetime of learning and fun to experience. By using technology safely, youll be able to continue enjoying it years into the future. ***** ULYSSES W. WATKINS JR., MD HEALTH NOTES HOLIDAY OVERINDULGENCE GENERAL INFORMATION PROBLEM WITH FOOD: This is the season to be merry, reacquaint old acquaintances, meet new people, exchange gifts and all of the other things that tend to turn people on. Another thing that turns people on at this time of the year is food and its ironic that they know that they will over eat and add on extra pounds. To that belief I say let it all hang outŽ unless of course you are diabetic or suffer with hypertension or heart trouble. I should not have to go into a long discussion about what precautions you should take with those conditions, because you should already know this from your trips to the doctor or clinic. However, I will say that if you must overindulge in food intake at least buy yourself a calorie chart before-hand so that you can keep the calorie intake as low as possible. By the way there is no such thing as getting over on your doctor by eating all of the things that you should not, so please dispel that belief because youre only fooling yourself. PERPETUAL PROBLEM: Now lets get to another perpetual problem which is drinking and driving. First of all alcoholic beverages do carry some high calorie counts (this is no reason however to do marijuana, cocaine or crack), but most importantly they also carry some high penalties if you are caught driving while under the influence of alcohol. I have repeatedly talked and written about this problem and yet it continues to be the number one health problem around holidays, this includes traffic deaths associated with alcohol intake. ACTION: If you must drink then dont let it control you and make you create problems with friends, relatives or strangers. There have been beautiful phrases, lectures and other pieces of advice about this problem of drinking and driving, but it all means the same thing If you drink, dont driveƒ.if you drive, dont drink.Ž Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

It is common knowledge that securing work in Hollywood is a proposition in itself, but when you are a child actor then add female and one of color to the mix, the odds really stack up against you. Anyone over coming those hurdles to get in the door can seriously be considered a chosen one! Thirteen year-old Atlanta, GA. Native China Anne McClain is without question, one of the busiest teens in show business and her flame is quickly turning superstar red hot! She joins the ranks of KeKe Palmer (True Jackson VP, Nickelodeon) and Kyle Massey (Corey In The House, Disney) as rare African American teens with their own network shows. This also puts her on par with Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Miranda Cosgrove and Rico Rodriguez to name some fellow teen stars. While most actors savor one TV Series McClain has two! She plays Jazmine Payne on Tyler Perrys House Of Payne, for The TBS Network which shoots at Perrys Atlanta studios and she is the star of her own TV Sitcom A.N.T. Farm (A.N.T. is an acronym for Advanced Natural Talent), which is shot in LA for the Disney Network Channel. The show has been picked up for a second season. Disney released a six song sound track of A.N.T. Farm back in October of this year with McClain singing solo on two cuts. She and her older sisters Sierra and Lauryn sang on all six cuts and the EP debuted a #29 in the Billboard Hot 200 while selling 14,000 copies during the first week of release. The hit single Calling All Monsters hit #86 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The McClain sisters recently signed with Disneys Hollywood Records label and are currently in the studio getting their first full album ready for a late spring release in 2012. Many will remember the McClain siblings who played sisters on Tyler Perrys hit film Daddys Little Girls. First of all congrats are in order for a thirteen year old who has two TV shows and working on an album. How does McClain soak all of it in? She reflects, God has really blessed me. Its been great and I have a great support system to help me. Everything has been going really well so far. How does this special young lady juggle shooting two shows in different cities? McClain explains, Yeah, A.N.T. Farm shoots in LA and House of Pain, which Im out here shooting right now is in Atlanta. Its kind of hard to juggle but not really. I always, always want to go back to House of Payne because thats where I pretty much got my start and everybody over there is like family. As with most actors who work with Tyler Perry; they become accustom to his famous fast pace of shooting an entire show episode in one day vs. Hollywood who takes a week to do the same thing. Some think Perrys innovative TV shooting style will soon catch on in Hollywood. What is McClains take on that? She laughs, Actually, H.O.P was not my first job but it was pretty much my second job or something so I basically started with the fast pace. Mr. Perry taught me how to work really fast and stuff. So when I got to LA and went to Disney, we were doing one episode a week! And I was like OK. Then I get more time to look over my script and I get more time to rest but I did miss the fast pace of going ahead rehearsing and then jump right into shooting and the whole freelance and adlibbing. With all of her jetting between LA and Atlanta, which one does McClain actually live in? She answers LA. What is the difference between the two cities when you are in the biz? McClain explains, In Atlanta, there is more southern hospitality here. In LA you dont really get that a lot. Its a very cut-throat business so in LA its hard. Its way harder than out here in Atlanta because its the South and everybody here is really sweet but up in LA; thats where everything goes on. Its very, very different but I do love LA and Atlanta both.

He was joined on stage with LL Cool J, Lupe Fiasco, Common, Melle Mel and Scorpio.

Teenager Accidentally Shoots and Kills BrotherA teenager was accused of fatally shooting and killing his older brother. Evans Honord, 18, and his 21-year-old, Schadrac Honord, were at a gathering at the home of Wilton Nisbeth. Nisbeth was a very close friend of Schadrac since high school and they were there because Nisbeth and his wife, who were both U.S. Marines, had just returned from serving two years in Japan and were planning to move. The couple were packing and planning a trip to Montana with their child before driving to where they would be stationed next, California. Nisbeth had prepared a gun for the trip in case they needed it for protection. Evans saw the .40-caliber handgun, which was sitting on the couch, and picked it up. He started handling and playing with the gun, until it went off striking Schadrac in the torso. The shot sent Shadrac falling straight to the ground and Evans started to repeatedly say that he shot his brother. When police arrived, Nisbeth told him that the gun was loaded, but he had the safety on with a pillow over it. He also told the officers that he let it be known to those at the gatherings that nobody should touch the gun. As he was packing, he heard the gun go off and saw Schadrac on the floor. Another person that was in the living room said she heard the shot as well and when she turned around, he saw the gun in Evans hand. Evans was arrested and charged with homicide/negligent manslaughter. He is being held on $25,000 bond. Schadrac was pronounced dead in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. Family members and friends described Shadrac as a great person who was a mentor and role model. He was the type that stayed away from trouble and had a passion for art as he was always drawing. He was said to have hopes of becoming a graphic designer. A cousin of Schadrac said he saw him as an older brother that he didnt have. The boys mother is hurt by the loss of her son, but doesnt believe that Evans should have been arrested as the shooting was all an accident.

DECEMBER 10 2011THE STARC&J 2 SSSHH! From Actual Police ReportsDid You Hear About?... Did You Hear About?... EDITORS NOTE: All suspects are deemed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. REDUCING VIOLENCE €Look for ways to settle arguments and disagreements without violence. Remember: if you resort to violence to settle disputes, a child may well follow your example. Be a good role model. €Use good manners to help ease tensions that can lead to violence. Teach kids that showing respect for themselves and for the needs of others can prevent crime. €Report crimes and suspicious activities to police; agree to testify when necessary. If you want to live in a safe community, stand up for what you believe in. €Dont support illegal activities, like buying stolen property or using illegal drugs. Its the wrong message to send to a child, and it involves you in criminal activity. It also encourages more crime that hurts you and your neighbors. HELPING VICTIMS OF CRIMES €Dont blame the victim or tell him or her not to be upset, angry, or afraid. Be a comfort and do what you can to ease the situation. €If the victim hasnt told the police, offer to help with a report. €Offer to help the victim repair damage from a crime, replace a windowpane, install a new lock, replace important papers or help with day-to-day needs like transportation, babysitting, and cooking. €Be willing to just sit and listen to the victim talk about the crime. It can help some victims to talk, although others will not want to. Dont try to make a victim talk if he or she does not want to! €Ask your local police about victims counseling and support groups in the area, and encourage the victim to take part. €Ask what you can do to help in the future, and make it a point to get back in touch.

Box 40629, Jacksonville, FL 32203 Three Men Arrested in a Series of RobberiesPolice have arrested three suspects who were responsible for a series of robberies at restaurants and small businesses. Police said the suspects were armed and entered stores with masks. They would steal cash, belongings, and valuables such as electronics. The robberies were said to be very violent as the suspects were very physical and threatening their victims. The robbery spree started in November 21 totalling up to seven robberies in a very short period of time. After the first robbery, police looked at the surveillance video, which showed one man in a ski mask, one with a bandana covering his face, and another in a black mask with a skeleton. Police had a tough time identifying the suspects and released it hoping for any leads from the public. Police finally were able to identify the suspects with a description of the car that they used to get away in, but six more robberies struck before they could find them. The last three robberies took place on the same night. Police were provided with more surveillance footage of the suspects, which showed them driving in a blue 1994 Toyota Corolla. More information from the victims on the suspects helped police to identify them as Elijah Bartholomew Johnson, 19, Jorland Vazquez-Cortijo, 20, and Hector Manuel Rosario, 21. Two days later, they were pulled over during a traffic stop, where they were arrested. The men confessed to the robberies. Vazquez-Cortijo and Rosario both face charges of all seven robberies. Johnson is being charged for only the first two robberies. Rosario was arrested before in October 2010 for a domestic violence-related battery, which was dropped. Johnson was arrested twice as a juvenile in 2009 on larceny and resisting an officer charges, which were later dismissed. Records show that Vazquez-Cortijo has no prior criminal history at all.

Child Molestor Arrested After Saving Drowning Girl Hamden, CTA 16-year-old was reported missing from the Childrens Center of Hamden and police were looking for because she had threatened to drown herself. A man who was jogging heard a woman crying for help. The woman was a counselor and was looking for someone to help the girl who was trying to kill herself. The jogging man dove into the lake the girl was in and tried to rescue her. An officer arrived, who also dove into the lake, but was soon stuck in muck and water. The man helped him out first, then both worked together to save the girl. All three of them got stuck, but the man managed to successfully save the girl and the officer helped himself out. The man told police that his name was Michael Patrick, but police found out later that his real name was Michael Rogers, who was a convicted child molester from Georgia. Rogers was wanted for violating his probation. In 2001, he was convicted of four counts of child molestation and fled from Georgia in 2005. Rogers was tracked down to his home, where he was arrested. A family member said she was aware of Rogers violation probation, but denied the allegations to his molestation charges saying that they somehow stemmed from his divorce and child custody situations. Police also say he may be extradited back to Georgia. DECEMBER 10, 2011THE STARC&J 3Bizarre Crimes Bizarre Crimeswho, what, when...huh? Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Man Doesnt Realize He is Selling Jewelry to the Same Person He Stole From A man had burglarized a home and tried to sell the stolen jewelry to a shop, but he did not realize the house he burglarized was of the same person who managed that shop. Nathaniel Coleman, 33, had walked into a shop with several items of jewelry that he wanted to sell. When the manager took a look at the jewelry, she began to recognize them as her own. She then told Coleman to excuse her and went to the back of the store where he could not see her and called her husband on the phone. The managers husband arrived shortly to the shop at the same time the police arrived. Coleman and the woman were taken in for questioning for investigation. When the womans husband and the police went to investigate the womans house, they found that the house was broken into from the back door. Also the inside of the house was left ravaged. The woman and her husband told police that they would like to press charges against Coleman. Coleman was arrested and charged with grand theft, dealing in stolen property and defrauding a pawnbroker. Woman and Mother Beat Pregnant Woman Arrests on two women were made after one chased and threw knives at her brother before both started beating his pregnant girlfriend. Jessica Shipman, 19, was with her mother Mary Randolph, 46, at a home with her brother and his girlfriend. An argument arose and Shipman started chasing after her brother and threw at least two knives in his direction. Then Randolph hit his pregnant girlfriend in the face. After Shipmans brother disappeared, Shipman joined her mother in beating the pregnant woman. Deputies responded to an alleged domestic violence call leading to the arrests of Shipman and Randolph. Shipman was charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, a thirddegree felony; and two counts of aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, a second-degree felony. Randolph was charged with two counts of aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, a second-degree felony. The Knockout KingŽ Game in St. Louis St. Louis, MOThere have been several reports this year in the streets of St. Louis involving a game called the Knockout King.Ž It turns out that it is a very simple game: try to beat and knock out an innocent bystander while shouting Knockout King!Ž Police say that Kwame Thomas, 17, and his friends had ganged up on a 54-year-old man and started beating him after he was sent to the ground. The group of teenagers surrounded him and repeatedly punched and kicked him while they were all yelling, Knockout King!Ž Thomas was arrested for second-degree assault with $10,000 bail. A 72-year-old man had died this year in St. Louis from this game. There have been other reports of people being beat down as victims of this game this year in the same city. Woman Hits Man with Car Over Parking Spot Longview, TXThe holidays are getting closer and huge discount deals put customers on their toes, which can sometimes turn violent for some, especially when everybody is at the same place. A man was standing in a parking spot with a shopping cart at a packed Walmart parking lot. The man was saving the spot for his wife who was trying to make her way around to where he was. Unfortunately, he was met with 43-year-old Vanessa Blackshire instead, who also wanted the spot. The dispute did not end well and Blackshire hit the man with her car. Blackshire was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was released on $10,000 bond. She also has no prior criminal history. Jessica Shipman Mary Randolph Nathaniel Coleman

DECEMBER 10, 2011PREP RAP PR 2 College & Career Readiness Improving Among U.S. High School Graduates Pool of ACT-Tested Graduates Is Largest, Most Diverse in HistoryIOWA CITY, Iowa„College and career readiness continues to increase among ACT-tested U.S. high school graduates, according to ACTs yearly report, The Condition of College & Career Readiness 2011, released today. The findings also suggest, however, that much improvement is still needed to ensure that all students are ready for success when they graduate from high school. Twenty-five percent of graduates in the class of 2011 who took the ACT exam met or surpassed all four of the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks, suggesting they are ready to succeed academically in specific first-year college courses (English composition, college algebra, introductory social science and biology) without the need for remediation. This compares to 24 percent last year, marking the third consecutive year that overall college and career readiness has increased. American students are making incremental progress toward being ready to complete college-level work, but theres still significant work to be done,Ž said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. In todays knowledge-based economy, American children are competing with the rest of the world for jobs, and our countrys long-term economic security is directly tied to the quality of its public education. These ACT results are another sign that states need to raise their academic standards and commit to education reforms that accelerate student achievement.Ž The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks, which are based on actual grades earned by students in college, specify the minimum scores needed on each ACT subject-area test (English, mathematics, reading and science) to indicate that a student has a 50 percent chance of earning a grade of B or higher or about a 75 percent chance of earning a C or higher in a typical credit-bearing first-year college course in that subject area. The increase in overall college and career readiness can be attributed to gradual gains in math and science, the two subject areas in which students are least likely to be prepared. This year, 45 percent of test takers (compared to 43 percent last year) met or exceeded the ACT College Readiness Benchmark in math, while 30 percent (compared to 29 percent last year) met or exceeded the benchmark in science. In comparison, 66 percent and 52 percent met or surpassed the benchmarks in English and reading, respectively, both unchanged from last year. At the same time, the ACT results continue to show an alarmingly high number of students who are graduating without all of the academic skills they need to succeed after high school. Nearly three in 10 test takers (28 percent) in the 2011 graduate class failed to meet any of the four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks, unchanged from last year. Too many students are still falling through the cracks,Ž said Erickson. Its important that we work hard to ensure that all young people graduate from high school with the skills they need to succeed in college and career.Ž This years pool of ACT-tested graduates is the largest and most racially diverse in the 52-year history of the exam. More than 1.62 million 2011 graduates„ 49 percent of the entire U.S. graduating class„took the ACT, an all-time record number for the seventh year in a row. The proportion of African American and Hispanic/Latino test takers has grown from 19 percent in 2007 to a high of 26 percent in 2011. Academic Readiness Is Only One Factor The ACT is an achievement test that measures the academic skills and knowledge learned in school and validated as critical for success in college. Although academic readiness is a crucial factor impacting college and career readiness, ACT research points to three key dimensions of college and career readiness: Academic Readiness„Are students academically prepared to succeed in college or career? The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks measure this dimension of college readiness. Behavioral Readiness„Do students exhibit the right behaviors and attitude toward education to increase their chances for success? ACT research suggests the combination of academic readiness (as measured by the ACT) and academic behaviors (as measured by ACTs ENGAGE’ program) provides a stronger prediction of college and career performance and success than does academic readiness alone. Educational and Career Planning„ Are students planning for and following a path to success in their education and career? ACT research shows that students who take challenging courses are much more likely than those who dont to be ready for college and career. Proactive career assessment, exploration and planning activities encourage students to consider career options so they can plan their coursework accordingly. Assessing what students have learned so far is a vital element in helping them to improve, but college and career readiness is very complex,Ž said Erickson. With more and more students across the country participating in testing, its important that test results are not overemphasized as a single answer to the readiness problem. We are committed to identifying the various factors that ensure success. The ACT is used for multiple goals and purposes beyond admissions and predicting college outcomes, such as course placement, counseling and accountability.Ž Recommendations to Improve Readiness The ACT report points to policies and practices that states, districts and schools can implement to systemically increase the percentage of their students who are ready for college-level work. Early Monitoring and Intervention„ In order for students to be ready for college and career when they graduate, their progress must be monitored closely. Deficiencies in foundational skills must be identified and remediated in upper elementary and middle school. In addition, age-appropriate career assessment, exploration and planning activities, when introduced early, can encourage students to consider and focus on personally relevant career options so they can plan and adjust their high school coursework accordingly. Essential Standards„States education standards must prepare all students for the rigors of college or career training programs. With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards by 45 states and the District of Columbia, most states have taken that first step to ensuring that all students are ready for college or career. It is imperative that policymakers and practitioners continue this advancement by aligning all aspects of their systems to college and career readiness. Common Expectations„All states should be aligning college and career readiness standards to a rigorous core curriculum for all high school students whether they are bound for college or work. The levels of expectation for college readiness and workforce training readiness should be comparable. Clear Performance Standards„States must define how good is good enoughŽ for college and career readiness. In addition to a consistent, rigorous set of essential K-12 content standards, states must define performance standards so that students, parents and teachers know how well students must perform academically to have a reasonable chance of success at college or on the job. Rigorous High School Courses„ Having appropriate and aligned standards, coupled with a core curriculum, will adequately prepare high school students only if the courses are truly challenging. That is, taking the right kinds of courses matters more than taking the right number of courses. Students who take a rigorous core curriculum should be ready for credit-bearing first-year college courses without remediation. Data-Driven Decisions„States have been hard at work in developing longitudinal P-16 data systems; this work must continue and, where possible, accelerate. States must develop systems that allow schools and districts to closely monitor student performance at every stage of the learning pipeline, from preschool through the elementary, middle and high school grades, all the way through college. Use of a longitudinal data system enables educators to identify students who are in need of academic interventions at an early stage, thus giving teachers and students more time to strengthen these skills before graduation. If states, districts and schools will follow these recommendations, our research shows that students will benefit,Ž said Erickson. And when young people benefit, so does our entire country. ACT will continue working hard to help identify solutions to the problems that impact college and career readiness in the United States.Ž The full national and state-specific ACT reports can be viewed and downloaded for free on ACTs website at the following URL: www.act.org/readiness/2011.

DECEMBER 10, 2011THE STARPR 4 P P R R E E P P R R A A P P Y Y o o u u t t h h S S e e c c t t i i o o n n (StatePoint) The world is changing and parents need to make sure their children are prepared to succeed in an increasingly globalized economy, say experts. The United States is often regarded as a melting pot, a place for people of different backgrounds to come together and ultimately grow alike. But the truth is that from language to food to religious practice, unique cultural traditions are all around us. We must not try to erase differences but rather respect them, even celebrate them,Ž says Rajiv Malhotra, author of the new book, Being Different: An Indian Challenge to Western UniversalismŽ (HarperCollins Publishers). Malhotra believes we can look to India as an example of a distinct society that peacefully integrates many diverse people. Alongside reading, writing and arithmetic, cultural diversity should be at the forefront of your childrens lesson plan. But dont just encourage tolerance. Go a step further. Tolerance is a patronizing posture,Ž says Malhotra, We need to learn to respect, even appreciate and not merely tolerate religious and cultural differences.Ž Here are some tips to teach children to respect one another as they become citizens of the world: € Absorbing the nuances of a second language is easiest when one is young, so sign your kids up for a language class at an early age. Better yet, learn along with them. € Pack your bags and take a trip. Dust off your passport or keep it domestic. Even within the United States, there is great opportunity to be exposed to new cultural experiences. € Think differently. There are fundamental differences between the Western worldview and the Eastern worldview, say scholars. People from different countries have different traditions, religious customs and histories that shape their thinking. Being accepting of others means opening your mind to the idea that there are different approaches to resolving the problems impacting our complex world. € Read a book. You dont need to be a globetrotter to learn about other cultures. Your local librarian can help you find age-appropriate books that will introduce children to other cultures and allow them to explore them deeply. For example, India has a rich history and culture that goes beyond the Western embrace of spicy foods, yoga and meditation. € Encourage friendships. Enroll your children in activities, camps and programs that foster relationships with kids of all religious, racial and economic backgrounds. € Engage in a substantive dialogue with others that explores new ideas about the world beyond your backyard. Question your values and be open to seeing the merit in the ideas of others,Ž suggests Malhotra, who founded the Infinity Foundation to encourage better East-West relations. For more information about his new book visit www.beingdifferentbook.com. € Host a potluck. Invite your friends over and have them bring dishes featuring their family recipes. You may find your circle of friends is more culturally diverse than you thought! By investing the time to teach these lessons, you can contribute toward making schools and communities a safer place for your kids.

Ask Mrs. Arnetta Jackson about Pearl Harbor and she will tell you about her brother who was over there and the birth of her daughter the following day as the paper boy walked down the street saying Read all about it. A judge approved a $100 million lawsuit against Beyonce in which the pop superstar is accused of "double-crossing" a video game maker after she inked a deal with the company to produce a game based on her. The singer made a request to toss the suit filed by Gate Five, but a New York judge denied her request yesterday, giving the go-ahead for the company to pursue their case against her, the New York Daily News reports. By Farris LongWhen it comes to good wholesome family entertainment in the city, Jacksonville Giants games are the place to be! With contests like Dance For Your Dinner and the $10,000 half court shot Giants games are fun for all! People frequently tout the Jaguars ticket prices and their losing record as reasons that they do not fill the stands. The Giants are the polar opposite! Ticket prices are very affordable (starting as low as $10), and hats off to head coach and GM Coach Kevin Waters for leading the team to an undefeated regular season and being ranked as number 3 in the nation in their inaugural season. The Giants are back for their second season here in the river city, and it is obvious that they are READY TO PLAY. Although, they brought back 7 of last year's key players. (Antonio Lawrence, Matt Fields, Anthony Lumpkin, Renaldo Norman, Nick Wallery, and Jermaine Bell, and Sherod Hot Rod Harris) the rest of the team is brand new to the Jacksonville ABA team. This year's team lacks some of the cohesiveness shown by last year's Giants squad. Their opponent in the season opener, the Gulf Coast Flash, presented a formidable challenge. At one point the Giants carried a double digit lead over the flash, but a number of turn overs by the Giants in the third and fourth quarters, cost them the lead. At the close of the fourth quarter, the tension was at a gut-wrenching high as the Giants were down 115-113 with three seconds left and the ball being thrown in from the far end of the court. Last season, the Giants went undefeated in the regular season. A loss on their home court in the first game of the season would have been devastating. But, in those final 3 seconds former NBA player Christian Laettner threw a pass to Mike Polyte who then turned the ball over to Currye Todd. Todd put the ball in the air, from behind the three point line just as the buzzer sounded. In that nail-biting moment, Giants fans were on the edge of their seat. Tension turned to screams of celebration at the sound of the swoosh. Currye Todd's shot was good -bringing the final score to 116-115. The next game is scheduled for December 14th at the UNF arena. Since the last teen pregnancy study was conducted nearly 30 years ago by JCCI that resulted in the establishment of The Bridge of Northeast Florida (recommendation of a model multi-service teen center), teen birth rates have declined. Yet, area teens continue to give birth at a higher rate than teens throughout the state and nation, according to the new Task Force report Preventing Teen Pregnancy in Northeast Florida. Several organizations are coming together to form a task force to educate teens regarding pregnancy and STDs. Presently 78% of Baker County teens had babies and 36.5% of Jacksonville teens had babies. About 18% of these young mothers had another child by 19 years of age. Youth still identify communications with parents as critical influence on sexual behavior. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overruled scientists at the Food and Drug Administration who were preparing to let Plan B sell without a prescription to people of any age. Sebelius decided that young girls shouldn't be able to buy the pill on their own. Plan B is a pill that can prevent pregnancy if taken soon enough after unprotected sex. Many are equally concerned about the many diseases that can be transferred, mainly HIV/AIDS. A recent story in Essence Magazine told of a university student who knew he was HIV positive but had unprotected sex with several female students without telling them of his medical condition. Florida also has a high HIV/AIDS population among African Americans with a high percentage of Black women dying from the disease. Robert Fleming Bradwell III, 08/08/1982.

When The World Goes Crazy On Your Cell PhoneBy Daris HowardI think that my cell phone must be reincarnated from a past life, because I am supposedly the first owner of the given number and yet have received some very strange calls. Perhaps it is simply because it is two digits in alternating sequence and easy to hit. What I do know is that the calls I have received are bizarre enough that people might feel I am making this up. I might exaggerate a little at times, but some times the truth is much stranger than fiction, and this is even too strange for me to make up. Oh, I receive the usual calls from little kids who think they have punched their dads phone number, but recently the strangeness has escalated. Just last week I received a call from a lady. Roger, she said, if you think you can just dump me this way youll be sorry. Im sorry, I said, but youve got the wrong number. Her anger was evident as she responded. Oh, you think youre so cute playing these little mind games, but you cant fool me, you big jerk. No, Im serious, I told her. You have the wrong number. At this she started to cry. You are such a big liar! You dont care about anybody but yourself! I consider trying to ease the tension by pretending I was Roger and saying something funny like, Hey, Im not as big a liar as I used to be now that Im on the Atkins Diet, but somehow I didnt think she was in the mood to be teased and besides, Roger might be some guy that was roughly the size of a gorilla, so I again gently tried to tell her she had the wrong number. Okay, she yells, just be that way! You wait until I get hold of you! With that she hung up making me feel like a real heel and appreciative of the fact my name wasnt Roger. I didnt think the calls could get any stranger, but I got two incredibly weird calls a day apart. The first was from a man whos phone number indicated he was from a big city back east. He called me Jeff and before I could say a word he started giving me some very critical and confidential information on a big company and its internal problems. When he finally stopped to ask my advice I was tempted to advise him to sell any stock he had, but instead I told him he had the wrong number. Arent you, Jeff? he asked. I told him I wasnt. Are you sure? he responded. I checked in the mirror and then assured him I wasnt. Dont you work for BIG COMPANY? he queried further. I told him I didnt. At that point, due to things that have been going on in board rooms lately, especially at HP, I thought he might respond, Oh great! Now Im going to have to kill you! Instead he just cussed and hung up. I thought I had pretty much received my lifetime allotment of strange phone calls, when the next afternoon I received a call. I looked at the number and it was a strange long number very long, perhaps originating in a foreign country. When I answered it a lady with a strong, unfamiliar accent responded. Ello. I call about you pet rhino. I dont have a pet rhino, I told her. Then why you say you do? I didnt say I do. Oh, sure, you think funny go post ad for pet rhino when you no have one. I didnt post an ad for a pet rhino. You, fink I stupid or something? I was beginning to think that might be the first thing she got right in our whole conversation, but I didnt like the tone of the conversation or where it was heading, so I tried to inform her she had the wrong number. Ya, right, you no fool me! she said angrily and hung up. Now every time my phone rings I warily look at the number. I dont know a lot of things, but I do know a company whose stock I dont plan to invest in. I also know that, Roger if youre listening, you might want to skip the country. Perhaps, if you have a pet rhino, I know a number you can call and they might hide you.

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2 THE STAR DECEMBER 10, 2011 HE FELT UNAPPRECIATED. Remember Fred, the Ladies Man, who had three wives and no divorces with two of them living at the time of his death? Fred spent 23 years with Angel supporting her and her three children. When his 26 year old step-daughter attempted to move back home with her two children, a big argument ensued and she reminded him that he was not her father. Brokenhearted, he left and Angel knew that he was not coming back. At age 53, with no skills and his only experience was picking fruits and vegetables, he felt that life had more to offer and that he should be more appreciated. In Georgia he married Betsy, but she had a similar situation with four teenage children and he did not want to be hurt. As soon as he had enough money, he moved to South Florida where he hit the jackpot. There he met Carolyn, a recently widowed and retired school teacher who had a lovely home that was paid for and a steady retirement income. For the first time in his life, Fred felt appreciated. He married Carolyn and lived happily until the time of his death. Freds actions only constituted his efforts to seek a better life and while he hurt a few people along the way, he was basically a kind hearted person.

While most jobs these days arent hazardous, repetitive stress injuries are common amongst even the most sedentary of workers. While your day at work is unavoidable, the resulting aches and pains in your neck, back or hands are not. Changing your telephone and computer habits, giving your work station an ergonomic tune-up, and taking breaks for stretching can go a long way to prevent injury and reduce discomfort. Our bodies are made to move -not to maintain the same position or posture for long periods of time or to repeat the same motions endlessly. says Dr. Rick McMichael, president of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). By following these tips from the experts at the ACA you can keep your days relatively pain-free: At Your Computer Do you slouch when you read? Dont break your back when you can break a bad habit instead. Work on maintaining proper posture at your desk and remember to get up and move around regularly. If your wrist is sore, you may be relying on it too much to move your mouse. Use your entire arm and shoulder instead. When typing, keep your wrists straight, your shoulders perpendicular to the floor and your forearms parallel to the floor. Using Your Mobile Device Your texting addiction could be the cause of major pain, as our thumbs were not made for constant tapping, flicking and clicking. Damaged soft tissue in your thumbs is nothing to LOL about. Abbreviate where possible, and learn to take a day off from checking messages. If you must text, alternate using your thumb, index finger and a stylus, if available. Even talkers can fall into bad habits, such as pinching the phone between the ear and shoulder, and leaning on a flexed elbow. Invest in a headset and be mindful of your telephone posture. Get Checked If youre experiencing any painful symptoms, get help. Doctors of chiropractic can counsel you on modifications to your work station that improve your posture and work habits. DCs also use a variety of non-drug, non-surgical approaches to help with common aches and pains. Keep an eye on your kids, as well. At least 70 percent of Americas 30 million elementary school students now use computers. As a result, doctors of chiropractic are treating more young patients suffering from the effects of working at computer stations that are either designed for adults or poorly designed for children. For more tips on using technology safely, visit www.technohealthy.com. Remember, your body has a lifetime of learning and fun to experience. By using technology safely, youll be able to continue enjoying it years into the future. ***** ULYSSES W. WATKINS JR., MD HEALTH NOTES HOLIDAY OVERINDULGENCE GENERAL INFORMATION PROBLEM WITH FOOD: This is the season to be merry, reacquaint old acquaintances, meet new people, exchange gifts and all of the other things that tend to turn people on. Another thing that turns people on at this time of the year is food and its ironic that they know that they will over eat and add on extra pounds. To that belief I say let it all hang out unless of course you are diabetic or suffer with hypertension or heart trouble. I should not have to go into a long discussion about what precautions you should take with those conditions, because you should already know this from your trips to the doctor or clinic. However, I will say that if you must overindulge in food intake at least buy yourself a calorie chart before-hand so that you can keep the calorie intake as low as possible. By the way there is no such thing as getting over on your doctor by eating all of the things that you should not, so please dispel that belief because youre only fooling yourself. PERPETUAL PROBLEM: Now lets get to another perpetual problem which is drinking and driving. First of all alcoholic beverages do carry some high calorie counts (this is no reason however to do marijuana, cocaine or crack), but most importantly they also carry some high penalties if you are caught driving while under the influence of alcohol. I have repeatedly talked and written about this problem and yet it continues to be the number one health problem around holidays, this includes traffic deaths associated with alcohol intake. ACTION: If you must drink then dont let it control you and make you create problems with friends, relatives or strangers. There have been beautiful phrases, lectures and other pieces of advice about this problem of drinking and driving, but it all means the same thing If you drink, dont drive.if you drive, dont drink.

It is common knowledge that securing work in Hollywood is a proposition in itself, but when you are a child actor then add female and one of color to the mix, the odds really stack up against you. Anyone over coming those hurdles to get in the door can seriously be considered a chosen one! Thirteen year-old Atlanta, GA. Native China Anne McClain is without question, one of the busiest teens in show business and her flame is quickly turning superstar red hot! She joins the ranks of KeKe Palmer (True Jackson VP, Nickelodeon) and Kyle Massey (Corey In The House, Disney) as rare African American teens with their own network shows. This also puts her on par with Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Miranda Cosgrove and Rico Rodriguez to name some fellow teen stars. While most actors savor one TV Series McClain has two! She plays Jazmine Payne on Tyler Perrys House Of Payne, for The TBS Network which shoots at Perrys Atlanta studios and she is the star of her own TV Sitcom A.N.T. Farm (A.N.T. is an acronym for Advanced Natural Talent), which is shot in LA for the Disney Network Channel. The show has been picked up for a second season. Disney released a six song sound track of A.N.T. Farm back in October of this year with McClain singing solo on two cuts. She and her older sisters Sierra and Lauryn sang on all six cuts and the EP debuted a #29 in the Billboard Hot 200 while selling 14,000 copies during the first week of release. The hit single Calling All Monsters hit #86 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The McClain sisters recently signed with Disneys Hollywood Records label and are currently in the studio getting their first full album ready for a late spring release in 2012. Many will remember the McClain siblings who played sisters on Tyler Perrys hit film Daddys Little Girls. First of all congrats are in order for a thirteen year old who has two TV shows and working on an album. How does McClain soak all of it in? She reflects, God has really blessed me. Its been great and I have a great support system to help me. Everything has been going really well so far. How does this special young lady juggle shooting two shows in different cities? McClain explains, Yeah, A.N.T. Farm shoots in LA and House of Pain, which Im out here shooting right now is in Atlanta. Its kind of hard to juggle but not really. I always, always want to go back to House of Payne because thats where I pretty much got my start and everybody over there is like family. As with most actors who work with Tyler Perry; they become accustom to his famous fast pace of shooting an entire show episode in one day vs. Hollywood who takes a week to do the same thing. Some think Perrys innovative TV shooting style will soon catch on in Hollywood. What is McClains take on that? She laughs, Actually, H.O.P was not my first job but it was pretty much my second job or something so I basically started with the fast pace. Mr. Perry taught me how to work really fast and stuff. So when I got to LA and went to Disney, we were doing one episode a week! And I was like OK. Then I get more time to look over my script and I get more time to rest but I did miss the fast pace of going ahead rehearsing and then jump right into shooting and the whole freelance and adlibbing. With all of her jetting between LA and Atlanta, which one does McClain actually live in? She answers LA. What is the difference between the two cities when you are in the biz? McClain explains, In Atlanta, there is more southern hospitality here. In LA you dont really get that a lot. Its a very cut-throat business so in LA its hard. Its way harder than out here in Atlanta because its the South and everybody here is really sweet but up in LA; thats where everything goes on. Its very, very different but I do love LA and Atlanta both.

This years AAFCA Awards will honor Richard Roundtree, Hattie Winston, producer George Lucas and Sony Pictures with Special Achievement Awards, in addition to its Top 10 honors and awards in categories like Best Actor/Actress and more. Future announcements with additional info regarding this gala will be made. Music: Dance Hall/Soca artist AMB has a scorching single out titled Dat Body gyal, from his newly released EP Dont Hate Congratulate on his own Platinum Trini Entertainment label which is marketed and distributed via Bungalo/Universal Music Group Distribution. The single features Konvick Muzik artist Qwes Kross and is produced by DJ Dila and pTbbeatz. Check out the sizzling video at www.dotbodygyal.com Madonna will perform during the Bridgestone Supper Bowl XLVI halftime show which will air on NBC-TV, Sunday, Feb 6, 2012. Country vocalist Sonia Leigh will join fellow country artist Eric Church on his 2012 Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour beginning in February. Leighs album 1978 December is out now on the Southern Ground Artists label. Live Concert: The Mnet TV Network which targets the U.S. Asian market and M-Live, an organization that promotes live concepts worldwide on Asian artists debuted The Jungle Concert last weekend in LA, at the famed Wiltern Theater. The show featured the top Korean hip hop, rap and soul artists. These included Lee Ssang, Bizz, Jung and was headlined by U.S. born Korean rap superstar Drunken Tiger and his mega-talented wife, singer/rapper Yoon Mirea. The SRO crowd was rocked to the rafters. Look for this show to come your way. TV: The Grammys Live Nominations Concert aired on CBS-TV last weekend was a smash again this year. Kanye West lead the pack with seven Nominations followed by Adele, Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars with six nods each. One of the highlights was the performance of hip hop/rap pioneer Grand Master Flash doing his 1982 classic hit The Message. He was joined on stage with LL Cool J, Lupe Fiasco, Common, Melle Mel and Scorpio. One of the low lights was the omitted re-union announcement of the original rock superstar group Van Halen (yep, that means David Lee Roth), which was not a very well kept secret. This is the lead-in the The Grammy Awards to be held on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012 and will be broadcast in 5.1 surround sound on CBS-TV. For a complete list of the nominees and other Grammy related info go to www.grammy.com. Of course you can also twitter and facebook.

Teenager Accidentally Shoots and Kills BrotherA teenager was accused of fatally shooting and killing his older brother. Evans Honord, 18, and his 21-year-old, Schadrac Honord, were at a gathering at the home of Wilton Nisbeth. Nisbeth was a very close friend of Schadrac since high school and they were there because Nisbeth and his wife, who were both U.S. Marines, had just returned from serving two years in Japan and were planning to move. The couple were packing and planning a trip to Montana with their child before driving to where they would be stationed next, California. Nisbeth had prepared a gun for the trip in case they needed it for protection. Evans saw the .40-caliber handgun, which was sitting on the couch, and picked it up. He started handling and playing with the gun, until it went off striking Schadrac in the torso. The shot sent Shadrac falling straight to the ground and Evans started to repeatedly say that he shot his brother. When police arrived, Nisbeth told him that the gun was loaded, but he had the safety on with a pillow over it. He also told the officers that he let it be known to those at the gatherings that nobody should touch the gun. As he was packing, he heard the gun go off and saw Schadrac on the floor. Another person that was in the living room said she heard the shot as well and when she turned around, he saw the gun in Evans hand. Evans was arrested and charged with homicide/negligent manslaughter. He is being held on $25,000 bond. Schadrac was pronounced dead in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. Family members and friends described Shadrac as a great person who was a mentor and role model. He was the type that stayed away from trouble and had a passion for art as he was always drawing. He was said to have hopes of becoming a graphic designer. A cousin of Schadrac said he saw him as an older brother that he didnt have. The boys mother is hurt by the loss of her son, but doesnt believe that Evans should have been arrested as the shooting was all an accident. C&J1 C M Y K Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia StarDECEMBER 10 2011 THE STAR C&J 1 As an African American newspaper, we basically report on offenses committed by African Americans.

DECEMBER 10 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. REDUCING VIOLENCE Look for ways to settle arguments and disagreements without violence. Remember: if you resort to violence to settle disputes, a child may well follow your example. Be a good role model. Use good manners to help ease tensions that can lead to violence. Teach kids that showing respect for themselves and for the needs of others can prevent crime. Report crimes and suspicious activities to police; agree to testify when necessary. If you want to live in a safe community, stand up for what you believe in. Dont support illegal activities, like buying stolen property or using illegal drugs. Its the wrong message to send to a child, and it involves you in criminal activity. It also encourages more crime that hurts you and your neighbors. HELPING VICTIMS OF CRIMES Dont blame the victim or tell him or her not to be upset, angry, or afraid. Be a comfort and do what you can to ease the situation. If the victim hasnt told the police, offer to help with a report. Offer to help the victim repair damage from a crime, replace a windowpane, install a new lock, replace important papers or help with day-to-day needs like transportation, babysitting, and cooking. Be willing to just sit and listen to the victim talk about the crime. It can help some victims to talk, although others will not want to. Dont try to make a victim talk if he or she does not want to! Ask your local police about victims counseling and support groups in the area, and encourage the victim to take part. Ask what you can do to help in the future, and make it a point to get back in touch. Your Safety Would you like to stay connected with your loved ones on lock down in jail, or prison?

Box 40629, Jacksonville, FL 32203 Three Men Arrested in a Series of RobberiesPolice have arrested three suspects who were responsible for a series of robberies at restaurants and small businesses. Police said the suspects were armed and entered stores with masks. They would steal cash, belongings, and valuables such as electronics. The robberies were said to be very violent as the suspects were very physical and threatening their victims. The robbery spree started in November 21 totalling up to seven robberies in a very short period of time. After the first robbery, police looked at the surveillance video, which showed one man in a ski mask, one with a bandana covering his face, and another in a black mask with a skeleton. Police had a tough time identifying the suspects and released it hoping for any leads from the public. Police finally were able to identify the suspects with a description of the car that they used to get away in, but six more robberies struck before they could find them. The last three robberies took place on the same night. Police were provided with more surveillance footage of the suspects, which showed them driving in a blue 1994 Toyota Corolla. More information from the victims on the suspects helped police to identify them as Elijah Bartholomew Johnson, 19, Jorland Vazquez-Cortijo, 20, and Hector Manuel Rosario, 21. Two days later, they were pulled over during a traffic stop, where they were arrested. The men confessed to the robberies. Vazquez-Cortijo and Rosario both face charges of all seven robberies. Johnson is being charged for only the first two robberies. Rosario was arrested before in October 2010 for a domestic violence-related battery, which was dropped. Johnson was arrested twice as a juvenile in 2009 on larceny and resisting an officer charges, which were later dismissed. Records show that Vazquez-Cortijo has no prior criminal history at all.

Child Molestor Arrested After Saving Drowning Girl Hamden, CTA 16-year-old was reported missing from the Childrens Center of Hamden and police were looking for because she had threatened to drown herself. A man who was jogging heard a woman crying for help. The woman was a counselor and was looking for someone to help the girl who was trying to kill herself. The jogging man dove into the lake the girl was in and tried to rescue her. An officer arrived, who also dove into the lake, but was soon stuck in muck and water. The man helped him out first, then both worked together to save the girl. All three of them got stuck, but the man managed to successfully save the girl and the officer helped himself out. The man told police that his name was Michael Patrick, but police found out later that his real name was Michael Rogers, who was a convicted child molester from Georgia. Rogers was wanted for violating his probation. In 2001, he was convicted of four counts of child molestation and fled from Georgia in 2005. Rogers was tracked down to his home, where he was arrested. A family member said she was aware of Rogers violation probation, but denied the allegations to his molestation charges saying that they somehow stemmed from his divorce and child custody situations. Police also say he may be extradited back to Georgia. DECEMBER 10, 2011 THE STAR C&J 3Bizarre Crimes Bizarre Crimeswho, what, when...huh? Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Man Doesnt Realize He is Selling Jewelry to the Same Person He Stole From A man had burglarized a home and tried to sell the stolen jewelry to a shop, but he did not realize the house he burglarized was of the same person who managed that shop. Nathaniel Coleman, 33, had walked into a shop with several items of jewelry that he wanted to sell. When the manager took a look at the jewelry, she began to recognize them as her own. She then told Coleman to excuse her and went to the back of the store where he could not see her and called her husband on the phone. The managers husband arrived shortly to the shop at the same time the police arrived. Coleman and the woman were taken in for questioning for investigation. When the womans husband and the police went to investigate the womans house, they found that the house was broken into from the back door. Also the inside of the house was left ravaged. The woman and her husband told police that they would like to press charges against Coleman. Coleman was arrested and charged with grand theft, dealing in stolen property and defrauding a pawnbroker. Woman and Mother Beat Pregnant Woman Arrests on two women were made after one chased and threw knives at her brother before both started beating his pregnant girlfriend. Jessica Shipman, 19, was with her mother Mary Randolph, 46, at a home with her brother and his girlfriend. An argument arose and Shipman started chasing after her brother and threw at least two knives in his direction. Then Randolph hit his pregnant girlfriend in the face. After Shipmans brother disappeared, Shipman joined her mother in beating the pregnant woman. Deputies responded to an alleged domestic violence call leading to the arrests of Shipman and Randolph. Shipman was charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, a thirddegree felony; and two counts of aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, a second-degree felony. Randolph was charged with two counts of aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, a second-degree felony. The Knockout King Game in St. Louis St. Louis, MOThere have been several reports this year in the streets of St. Louis involving a game called the Knockout King. It turns out that it is a very simple game: try to beat and knock out an innocent bystander while shouting Knockout King! Police say that Kwame Thomas, 17, and his friends had ganged up on a 54-year-old man and started beating him after he was sent to the ground. The group of teenagers surrounded him and repeatedly punched and kicked him while they were all yelling, Knockout King! Thomas was arrested for second-degree assault with $10,000 bail. A 72-year-old man had died this year in St. Louis from this game. There have been other reports of people being beat down as victims of this game this year in the same city. Woman Hits Man with Car Over Parking Spot Longview, TXThe holidays are getting closer and huge discount deals put customers on their toes, which can sometimes turn violent for some, especially when everybody is at the same place. A man was standing in a parking spot with a shopping cart at a packed Walmart parking lot. The man was saving the spot for his wife who was trying to make her way around to where he was. Unfortunately, he was met with 43-year-old Vanessa Blackshire instead, who also wanted the spot. The dispute did not end well and Blackshire hit the man with her car.

The planet is about twice the size of Earth, with a temperature of around 22C. That temperature is just right for liquid water something that's important to support life. "This is a major milestone on the road to finding Earth's twin," said Douglas Hudgins from the Nasa team. The experts don't yet know whether the new planet is made up of rock, gas or liquid. Kepler 22-b was discovered by Nasa's Kepler space telescope, which is on a mission to find planets like ours.

DECEMBER 10, 2011 PREP RAP PR 2 College & Career Readiness Improving Among U.S. High School Graduates Pool of ACT-Tested Graduates Is Largest, Most Diverse in HistoryIOWA CITY, IowaCollege and career readiness continues to increase among ACT-tested U.S. high school graduates, according to ACTs yearly report, The Condition of College & Career Readiness 2011, released today. The findings also suggest, however, that much improvement is still needed to ensure that all students are ready for success when they graduate from high school. Twenty-five percent of graduates in the class of 2011 who took the ACT exam met or surpassed all four of the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks, suggesting they are ready to succeed academically in specific first-year college courses (English composition, college algebra, introductory social science and biology) without the need for remediation. This compares to 24 percent last year, marking the third consecutive year that overall college and career readiness has increased. American students are making incremental progress toward being ready to complete college-level work, but theres still significant work to be done, said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. In todays knowledge-based economy, American children are competing with the rest of the world for jobs, and our countrys long-term economic security is directly tied to the quality of its public education. These ACT results are another sign that states need to raise their academic standards and commit to education reforms that accelerate student achievement. The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks, which are based on actual grades earned by students in college, specify the minimum scores needed on each ACT subject-area test (English, mathematics, reading and science) to indicate that a student has a 50 percent chance of earning a grade of B or higher or about a 75 percent chance of earning a C or higher in a typical credit-bearing first-year college course in that subject area. The increase in overall college and career readiness can be attributed to gradual gains in math and science, the two subject areas in which students are least likely to be prepared. This year, 45 percent of test takers (compared to 43 percent last year) met or exceeded the ACT College Readiness Benchmark in math, while 30 percent (compared to 29 percent last year) met or exceeded the benchmark in science. In comparison, 66 percent and 52 percent met or surpassed the benchmarks in English and reading, respectively, both unchanged from last year. At the same time, the ACT results continue to show an alarmingly high number of students who are graduating without all of the academic skills they need to succeed after high school. Nearly three in 10 test takers (28 percent) in the 2011 graduate class failed to meet any of the four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks, unchanged from last year. Too many students are still falling through the cracks, said Erickson. Its important that we work hard to ensure that all young people graduate from high school with the skills they need to succeed in college and career. This years pool of ACT-tested graduates is the largest and most racially diverse in the 52-year history of the exam. More than 1.62 million 2011 graduates 49 percent of the entire U.S. graduating classtook the ACT, an all-time record number for the seventh year in a row. The proportion of African American and Hispanic/Latino test takers has grown from 19 percent in 2007 to a high of 26 percent in 2011. Academic Readiness Is Only One Factor The ACT is an achievement test that measures the academic skills and knowledge learned in school and validated as critical for success in college. Although academic readiness is a crucial factor impacting college and career readiness, ACT research points to three key dimensions of college and career readiness: Academic ReadinessAre students academically prepared to succeed in college or career? The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks measure this dimension of college readiness. Behavioral ReadinessDo students exhibit the right behaviors and attitude toward education to increase their chances for success? ACT research suggests the combination of academic readiness (as measured by the ACT) and academic behaviors (as measured by ACTs ENGAGE program) provides a stronger prediction of college and career performance and success than does academic readiness alone. Educational and Career Planning Are students planning for and following a path to success in their education and career? ACT research shows that students who take challenging courses are much more likely than those who dont to be ready for college and career. Proactive career assessment, exploration and planning activities encourage students to consider career options so they can plan their coursework accordingly. Assessing what students have learned so far is a vital element in helping them to improve, but college and career readiness is very complex, said Erickson. With more and more students across the country participating in testing, its important that test results are not overemphasized as a single answer to the readiness problem. We are committed to identifying the various factors that ensure success. The ACT is used for multiple goals and purposes beyond admissions and predicting college outcomes, such as course placement, counseling and accountability. Recommendations to Improve Readiness The ACT report points to policies and practices that states, districts and schools can implement to systemically increase the percentage of their students who are ready for college-level work. Early Monitoring and Intervention In order for students to be ready for college and career when they graduate, their progress must be monitored closely. Deficiencies in foundational skills must be identified and remediated in upper elementary and middle school. In addition, age-appropriate career assessment, exploration and planning activities, when introduced early, can encourage students to consider and focus on personally relevant career options so they can plan and adjust their high school coursework accordingly. Essential StandardsStates education standards must prepare all students for the rigors of college or career training programs. With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards by 45 states and the District of Columbia, most states have taken that first step to ensuring that all students are ready for college or career. It is imperative that policymakers and practitioners continue this advancement by aligning all aspects of their systems to college and career readiness. Common ExpectationsAll states should be aligning college and career readiness standards to a rigorous core curriculum for all high school students whether they are bound for college or work. The levels of expectation for college readiness and workforce training readiness should be comparable. Clear Performance StandardsStates must define how good is good enough for college and career readiness. In addition to a consistent, rigorous set of essential K-12 content standards, states must define performance standards so that students, parents and teachers know how well students must perform academically to have a reasonable chance of success at college or on the job. Rigorous High School Courses Having appropriate and aligned standards, coupled with a core curriculum, will adequately prepare high school students only if the courses are truly challenging. That is, taking the right kinds of courses matters more than taking the right number of courses. Students who take a rigorous core curriculum should be ready for credit-bearing first-year college courses without remediation. Data-Driven DecisionsStates have been hard at work in developing longitudinal P-16 data systems; this work must continue and, where possible, accelerate. States must develop systems that allow schools and districts to closely monitor student performance at every stage of the learning pipeline, from preschool through the elementary, middle and high school grades, all the way through college. Use of a longitudinal data system enables educators to identify students who are in need of academic interventions at an early stage, thus giving teachers and students more time to strengthen these skills before graduation. If states, districts and schools will follow these recommendations, our research shows that students will benefit, said Erickson. And when young people benefit, so does our entire country. ACT will continue working hard to help identify solutions to the problems that impact college and career readiness in the United States.

DECEMBER 10, 2011 THE STAR PR 4 P P R R E E P P R R A A P P Y Y o o u u t t h h S S e e c c t t i i o o n n (StatePoint) The world is changing and parents need to make sure their children are prepared to succeed in an increasingly globalized economy, say experts. The United States is often regarded as a melting pot, a place for people of different backgrounds to come together and ultimately grow alike. But the truth is that from language to food to religious practice, unique cultural traditions are all around us. We must not try to erase differences but rather respect them, even celebrate them, says Rajiv Malhotra, author of the new book, Being Different: An Indian Challenge to Western Universalism (HarperCollins Publishers). Malhotra believes we can look to India as an example of a distinct society that peacefully integrates many diverse people. Alongside reading, writing and arithmetic, cultural diversity should be at the forefront of your childrens lesson plan. But dont just encourage tolerance. Go a step further. Tolerance is a patronizing posture, says Malhotra, We need to learn to respect, even appreciate and not merely tolerate religious and cultural differences. Here are some tips to teach children to respect one another as they become citizens of the world: Absorbing the nuances of a second language is easiest when one is young, so sign your kids up for a language class at an early age. Better yet, learn along with them. Pack your bags and take a trip. Dust off your passport or keep it domestic. Even within the United States, there is great opportunity to be exposed to new cultural experiences. Think differently. There are fundamental differences between the Western worldview and the Eastern worldview, say scholars. People from different countries have different traditions, religious customs and histories that shape their thinking. Being accepting of others means opening your mind to the idea that there are different approaches to resolving the problems impacting our complex world. Read a book. You dont need to be a globetrotter to learn about other cultures. Your local librarian can help you find age-appropriate books that will introduce children to other cultures and allow them to explore them deeply. For example, India has a rich history and culture that goes beyond the Western embrace of spicy foods, yoga and meditation. Encourage friendships. Enroll your children in activities, camps and programs that foster relationships with kids of all religious, racial and economic backgrounds. Engage in a substantive dialogue with others that explores new ideas about the world beyond your backyard. Question your values and be open to seeing the merit in the ideas of others, suggests Malhotra, who founded the Infinity Foundation to encourage better East-West relations. For more information about his new book visit www.beingdifferentbook.com. Host a potluck. Invite your friends over and have them bring dishes featuring their family recipes. You may find your circle of friends is more culturally diverse than you thought! By investing the time to teach these lessons, you can contribute toward making schools and communities a safer place for your kids.
