The Jacksonville Transit Authority presented a star shaped plaque to Dr. Joseph Johnson, Chairman for the Concerned Citizens Seeking Improved Passenger Decorum, an advocate group that was formed in 1999 in an effort to enhance the quality of bus transportation and customer safety and respect on city buses. Dr. Johnsons efforts caused the city to equip audion messages such as Dont cuss on the bus. Mr. Michael Blaylock said during the presentation that one should never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: Indeed its the only thing that has. Howard University is known for its academics, not sports. However, the womens basketball team closed the first half and opened the second half of its game Sunday against the Navy womens basketball team on significant runs that resulted in the Lady Bison posting a 60-50 victory over the Midshipmen at Burr Gymnasium in Washington, D.C. This is a first. Above are two composite sketches from two victims in two different parts of the city of Jacksonville. The situations point to the same man even though two composites are shown. Officers said that last Friday, the rapist forced a woman into his car off Arlington Express where he drove her to a parking lot nearby and raped her. The other victim was also forced into his car and sexually assaulted. They were both forced into the mans car at gunpoint. The incidents happened several days apart and on different sides of town. Both described the rapist as a black man between 25 and 35 years of age, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. They also said that the man was driving a green Ford Taurus appearing to be from 1999 to 2002. They also described the vehicle as having a musty odor inside. This person has not been located so it is urgent that women in the area are careful and alert. If you have any information that could lead to the identity of this man, please call Crime Stoppers at 866845-TIPS. Atlanta was pleased with their win but not jumping for joy when feeling the sadness for their neighboring state team that had just received the title of the first minority owned NFL team and being led by the teams first Black coach, though interim.. One cannot say the team did not show, they say they feel the team was extra excited. Whatever the case, the game ended with the same score that the Jaguars had Monday over their own state team, the Tampa Buccaneers 41-14. What a coincident! Shahid Khan said on Wednesday during a news conference at the NFL owners meeting that he was very humble in his acquisition of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He committed to do whatever it takes for the Jaguars to become a winning team. The official ownership of the team from Wayne Weaver to Shahid Khan will not occur until January 4, 2012. After the game Thursday night, the Atlanta Falcons said they will continue their effort to focus on the game and give their city their best game. They are now 9-5. Jacksonville players said they wish they could have executed their game plan better. Their desire to make their new owner proud that he made the choice to purchase the team and are anxious to meet him and work with him. Right now, their standing is 4-10 but the leading rusher in the NFL, Maurice Jones-Drew, is still a Jaguar.

If you have been fortunate enough to turn your channels to real African American television, you have enjoyed movies you had not seen before while also enjoying Soul Train and gospel viewing, church services, legal matters, sports and our folks in Hollywood. You can watch it in the Jacksonville area and the Brunswick, Georgia area Now, Bounce TV has accelerated its tremendous growth and expansion with one of the most iconic television series ever to the network, while adding two more markets to its growing list of affiliated stations. Martin Luther King III, member of Bounce TV's Founding Group and Board of Directors announced today that the network has acquired the television rights to all 113 episodes of Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids (TM) series in a licensing agreement with Classic Media. Bounce TV will launch the series with a special "Hey! Hey! Hey! It's New Year's Day" Marathon on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012 starting at 12:00 Noon ET. Bounce TV will rebrand its Tuesday night line-up as "Fat Tuesdays" to feature four primetime episodes of the series back-to-back every week at 8:00 p.m. ET starting Tuesday, Jan. 3. Bounce TV is already in 71% of African American television homes. Bounce TV targets African Americans primarily between the ages of 25-54 with a programming mix of theatrical motion pictures, live sports, documentaries, specials, inspirational faith-based programs, off-net series, original programming and more. Bounce TV airs twenty four hours a day, seven days a week on the digital signals of local television stations. Martin Luther King III and Ambassador Andrew Young are among the Founding Group and Board of Directors of Bounce TV. Toyota USA is the signature sponsor of the network.

Davis-Correia passed after a long battle with cancer and was the firestorm that took her brothers case to international heights. Although few people initially paid attention to the faulty murder conviction of this young black male in Georgia, Davis sister dedicated her life to fighting for her brothers freedom. Davis was killed by lethal injection on September 21 of this year. The execution was covered by international media, and there are millions around the world who consider the execution of Davis to be one of the most symbolic indicators of injustice in American history. Davis was executed after several witnesses recanted their stories, and even NAACP President Ben Jealous has repeatedly stated that the real killer is on the loose. Even as she fought her cancer, Ms. Davis-Correia fought diligently for her brothers freedom. She fought to very end, as did her brother Troy. Right before his execution, Davis maintained that he didnt kill Police Officer MarkMacPhail, continuing to maintain his innocence.

Marking the conclusion of the war at a military base that's seen more than 200 deaths from fighting in Iraq, Obama never tried to declare victory. It was a war that he opposed from the start, inherited as president and is now bringing to a close, leaving behind an Iraq still struggling. But he sought to pronounce a noble end to a fight that has cost nearly 4,500 American lives and more than 100,000 Iraqi lives.

Mr. Shirk added that by his estimation, violent crime the majority of the time is directly related to illegal drugs. These were some of the ideas he presented as a panelist at the University of North Florida on November 29th during The 904 Project: A Town Hall Event. The Criminology students here at UNF and the organizers of this discussion should be commended for initiating this important conversation,Ž said the Public Defender. Ninety-nine percent of the time, our office is representing the individuals that make up the statistics presented at the Town Hall. We join with the different sectors of the community represented here in the desire to continue working toward solutions and conversations like this will keep ideas flowing.Ž The event was the culmination of a research project done by UNF's graduate criminology students who were inspired by the award-winning documentary film The 904. The students presented new data on crime rates in Jacksonville and a provocative media audit of local coverage of crime issues. The student research team (pictured, right) consisted of Laura Davie, Kevin Larose-Renner, Sigrid Wellhausen and Robert Farley. The 904 Project featured an introduction by UNF President John Delaney and a Town Hall Panel moderated by UNF Criminology & Criminal Justice Department Chair, Dr. Michael Hallett and WJCT's Melissa Ross. Panelists who attended in addition to Shirk were: Dolly Dillin from Jacksonville Children's Commission, Frank Denton the Senior Editor of the Florida Times-Union/jacksonville.com, Alton Yates, Civil Rights Icon and Kevin Gay the President & CEO, Operation New Hope..

DECEMBER 17, 2011 THESTAR LOCAL FLORIDA SECTION B Article by M.E. Ford, photos courtesy of The City of Jacksonville and Edith Walker of the Florida Star On November 22, more than 1,000 seniors attended the 25th Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon for Seniors at the Wyndham Riverwalk Hotel. The luncheon was organized 25 years ago by Joan Turner who credits Emily Timmons and Amanda King of radio station WCGL and the Florida Star Newspaper for responding to Turners challenge to Adopt-A-Senior. The program was started in 1986 and was designed to benefit frail and homebound seniors from various long-term care settings in Duval County. To date, over 20,000 seniors have attended the event. Those seniors in attendance are sponsored by individuals, businesses, elected officials, civic or fraternal groups and faith-based organizations. This year Mayor Alvin Brown attended, and declared that Seniors are special and are to be remembered as we are standing on their shouldersƒŽ Bishop Rudolph McKissick Sr. was the featured speaker. The theme for this year was Celebrate Life.Ž Mrs. Turners granddaughters performed and her husband of 46 years, Aaron Turner, presented her an envelope containing additional funds from donors as Deborah Maiden, President of WCGL looks on in one of the pictures. Later, Councilmen Reginald Brown and Warren Jones presented a certificate to Mrs. Turner as Councilman Jones advised the council that Mrs. Turner has never been before the council to request funds. She does it all on her own. The council and audience applauded this history. To add to the love and respect Jacksonville has for its senior citizens, Mayor Brown hosted an event at the Prime Osborn Convention wherein 2,000 attended as they gathered for an afternoon of dancing and dinner. Mayor Brown told the audience, Youve set the foundation for Jacksonvilles future by building your homes, raising your families and starting businesses here.Ž He added that seventy-one thousand military veterans throughout Northeast Florida are age 65 or older. In fact, there are 425,000 people 60 or older, that live throughout metropolitan Jacksonville. Jacksonville Give Thanks to Seniors on November 22nd and December 3rd

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2THE STAR DECEMBER 17, 2011 Time-Saving Tips And Tools To Help You Multi-Task (StatePoint) With todays busy schedules, most people wish they simply had more time. But while you cant add hours to the day, you can free up your time by streamlining your to-do list with time-saving tools. From the kitchen to the office, people are looking for new technologies to help them become more efficient. In fact, according to a survey conducted by research firm Toluna, and cordless phone manufacturer VTech Communications, 81 percent of respondents rank devices that help you multi-task and get more things done as very important. So if you are feeling strapped for time, stay up to date with these multitasking tips: Automate Your Finances By automating your finances, your banking can take place while you sleep. The first step is to sign up for direct deposit at work. Likewise, you can set up direct debit for your monthly bills. If you need to access any of your statements, you no longer need to sort through your file cabinet. Its all easily searchable through your online account. So stop sorting mail, filing, paying bills and visiting your brick and mortar bank, and go take a bubble bath instead. Reclaim Your Hands While talking on the phone, youre probably also typing, cooking, doing laundry or some other task. And you would probably be completing the other task more efficiently if you had both hands free. Invest in a phone system for your home or office that will give you your hands back. For example, the LS6475-3 phone system from VTech enables users to answer calls from a cordless headset and conference conversations while accomplishing other tasks such as cleaning, finalizing work presentations or preparing dinner. If you conduct business both from the home and on-the-go, consider VTehs Connect-to-Cell phone system, DS6421-3, which syncs your cellular calls to a regular handset phone. This capability gives you better sound quality and the security of a landline, while still using your mobile number for business calls at home. For more information, visit www.vtechphones.com. E-Read Sorting through library stacks, putting a book on hold, and waiting three weeks for your pick to become available is a charming experience. However, its also unbearably time consuming. Save yourself the trouble and download exactly what books you want to your ereader. Some public libraries even have downloadable books online. Order Food Online Nothing saves time like ordering in. And now its easier than ever. New food ordering sites such as Seamless.com partner with thousands of restaurants in cities nationwide, so that you can order dinner, even while checking e-mail. Make digging through your menu drawer and repeating your address three times a thing of the past. Wether youre a business professional, full-time homemaker or both, you can create more time in your day by making the best use of the latest technologies to help you get more done. ULYSSES W.

Health Notes Announcements, meetings, happenings, and community events scheduled in Jacksonville and the surrounding area REAL LIFE STORIES HE GOT THE SHOCKER OF HIS LIFE. David, a 26 year old WWII veteran returned home and married his high school sweetheart who already had an 8 year old daughter. They had no additional children, but lived happily for 60 years until she died. His wife never worked, so he was the sole provider for the family and provided a good life for his wife and step-daughter. His step-daughter had 8 children and he accepted all of them as his grandchildren. Upon the death of his sweetheart, David gave his step-daughter $60,000 cash and $10,000 to each of her children ($140,000). David was a deacon in his church and after having been widowed for two years, he became lonely and married an elderly church lady largely for companionship, but also because he had fallen in love. Shortly after the wedding, much to his surprise, 2 of his granddaughters came into his house and right in front of his face, took all of his china, crystal and silver. They claimed that it belonged to their grandmother and no other woman had a right to use it. RESULT: Now the old man who has given so much to so many for so long, has been totally crushed by the conduct of the selfish few. He is now working with us to make plans for the rest of his life and for the distribution of his assets.

It was in 1978 that rapper Keith Cowboy Wiggins, one of the original members of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, coined the term Hip Hop. He was teasing a friend who was in the Army by scat singing the words hip/hop/ hip/hop to mimic the rhythmic style that the soldiers used to march. He then worked the routine into his stage act. The disco artists at the time looked down on the new music style born in the South Bronx that incorporated break-beats, looping, scratching, vocal beat boxing and rapping and dissed the MCs and DJs as hip hoppers. But the movement caught on via pioneers such as DJ Clive Kool Herc Campbell, Afrika Bambaataa and his Universal Zulu Nation, Grand Wizard Theodore and the first wave of rap/hip hop artists that included The Sugar Hill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Doug E. Fresh, The Fat Boys, Biz Markie and others. At first the music was poetic, expressive and political. Then West Cost gangsta rap entered the scene and got everybodys attention. The music and the projection of the gangsta lifestyle crossed over big time in appeal to White suburban youth and the powers that be quickly seized the opportunity to exploit it not only for the mega cash profits but also to allow the negative aspects such as cursing, degrading women of color, the glorification of violence, lack of respect for education, pimping, hoeing, drug pushing etc, to have their evil full effects in the Black Afrikan community. As a result, rap/hip-hop music and the video images that they produce have suffered a serious black eye in terms of public perception and reputation. With such a negative stigma on rap and hip hop, how could any rapper use that medium to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ? Well the gospel rap movement sprang up several years ago along with the new age hip hop churches. One of the proponents of gospel rap is Flame aka Rev. Marcus Gray. Flame is fast becoming a house hold name in gospel rap. The St. Louis, Mo., native has received nominations from The Grammys, The Stellar and Dove Awards for his CD Revived. He has his own record label Clear Sight Music and is a graduate with a BA Degree from the Boyce College Seminary. Flame is married and currently attends The Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY., where he is working towards his Masters in Biblical Counseling. Flame wasnt always on the straight and narrow path. He had a troubled childhood and was going the wrong way when the combination of a near fatal car accident and the death of his grandmother lead him to accept Christ at the age of 16. Given everything that was said earlier in this article, has the old school, traditional church accepted gospel rap? Flame has to chuckle at this one and says, Its been rotisserie style but I think they have definitely come our way. In the beginning stages of that new genre Christian Rap, there was a little push back. But over the years I think that as theyve seen the fruit of it, theyve seen the seriousness, the commitment to ministry, its been a little more ease. So Im excited to see where its headed. The young hip hop church goers have label the traditional church as The Old Model which they say no longer works and describes their way of worship as The New Model which could cause conflict. What is lames take on that? He explains, Well the first thing I would say is that I appreciate the caution from the older generation because theyre looking to pass the baton and they dont want to pass it to anybody. So I appreciate the wisdom of moving slow, examining it to see if it is legitimate, will they bare the name of Christ properly, will they trample the name of Christ, so I appreciate the wisdom and the slow pace. But as far as there being a conflict, I wouldnt necessarily use that word. I think its probably a little strong. I think at best its just a lack of understanding. So the younger generation with the energy and the zeal, theyre just ready to go full fledge, full force thinking that we have all the answers, we know the way when the old generation is saying yeah, weve been there also. Here are some things that we learned that you need to hold on to. So I think its more so a communication issue where we need to sit down and educate one another on what we bring to the table and how we can actually work together because truthfully, we need each other.

It is funny and will keep you guessing. You can count on a Jonah Hill movie to do what he does best and the children from hell that he has to baby sit keep the pace jumping from start to finish. New Years Eve. New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures. Starring Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Chris Ludacris Bridges, Robert De Niro, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Hector Elizondo, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara. Directed by Garry Marshall. Written by Katherine Fugate. Produced by Mike Karz, Wayne Rice and Gary Marshall. It can be tricky to have an all-star cast ensemble to make a movie but it works OK when several stories are told with their own set of stars. As with all flicks of this nature, it is entertaining.

It was in 1978 that rapper Keith Cowboy Wiggins, one of the original members of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, coined the term Hip Hop. He was teasing a friend who was in the Army by scat singing the words hip/hop/ hip/hop to mimic the rhythmic style that the soldiers used to march. He then worked the routine into his stage act. The disco artists at the time looked down on the new music style born in the South Bronx that incorporated break-beats, looping, scratching, vocal beat boxing and rapping and dissed the MCs and DJs as hip hoppers. But the movement caught on via pioneers such as DJ Clive Kool Herc Campbell, Afrika Bambaataa and his Universal Zulu Nation, Grand Wizard Theodore and the first wave of rap/hip hop artists that included The Sugar Hill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Doug E. Fresh, The Fat Boys, Biz Markie and others. At first the music was poetic, expressive and political. Then West Cost gangsta rap entered the scene and got everybodys attention. The music and the projection of the gangsta lifestyle crossed over big time in appeal to White suburban youth and the powers that be quickly seized the opportunity to exploit it not only for the mega cash profits but also to allow the negative aspects such as cursing, degrading women of color, the glorification of violence, lack of respect for education, pimping, hoeing, drug pushing etc, to have their evil full effects in the Black Afrikan community. As a result, rap/hip-hop music and the video images that they produce have suffered a serious black eye in terms of public perception and reputation. With such a negative stigma on rap and hip hop, how could any rapper use that medium to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ? Well the gospel rap movement sprang up several years ago along with the new age hip hop churches. One of the proponents of gospel rap is Flame aka Rev. Marcus Gray. Flame is fast becoming a house hold name in gospel rap. The St. Louis, Mo., native has received nominations from The Grammys, The Stellar and Dove Awards for his CD Revived. He has his own record label Clear Sight Music and is a graduate with a BA Degree from the Boyce College Seminary. Flame is married and currently attends The Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY., where he is working towards his Masters in Biblical Counseling. Flame wasnt always on the straight and narrow path. He had a troubled childhood and was going the wrong way when the combination of a near fatal car accident and the death of his grandmother lead him to accept Christ at the age of 16. Given everything that was said earlier in this article, has the old school, traditional church accepted gospel rap? Flame has to chuckle at this one and says, Its been rotisserie style but I think they have definitely come our way. In the beginning stages of that new genre Christian Rap, there was a little push back. But over the years I think that as theyve seen the fruit of it, theyve seen the seriousness, the commitment to ministry, its been a little more ease. So Im excited to see where its headed. The young hip hop church goers have label the traditional church as The Old Model which they say no longer works and describes their way of worship as The New Model which could cause conflict. What is lames take on that? He explains, Well the first thing I would say is that I appreciate the caution from the older generation because theyre looking to pass the baton and they dont want to pass it to anybody. So I appreciate the wisdom of moving slow, examining it to see if it is legitimate, will they bare the name of Christ properly, will they trample the name of Christ, so I appreciate the wisdom and the slow pace. But as far as there being a conflict, I wouldnt necessarily use that word. I think its probably a little strong. I think at best its just a lack of understanding. So the younger generation with the energy and the zeal, theyre just ready to go full fledge, full force thinking that we have all the answers, we know the way when the old generation is saying yeah, weve been there also. Here are some things that we learned that you need to hold on to. So I think its more so a communication issue where we need to sit down and educate one another on what we bring to the table and how we can actually work together because truthfully, we need each other.

Directed by Garry Marshall. Written by Katherine Fugate. Produced by Mike Karz, Wayne Rice and Gary Marshall. It can be tricky to have an all-star cast ensemble to make a movie but it works OK when several stories are told with their own set of stars. As with all flicks of this nature, it is entertaining.

Man of Cleaning Company Steals Identities A man is accused of using his cleaning company to steal personal information from customers. The owner of the business is 45-year-old Jonathan William Morris II, who ID fraud from March 24, 2011 to September 2011. Many country clubs have used the service of Morris company, such as the Eagle Harbor Golf Club where Morris stole the majority of the identities. An amount of at least $10,000 was reported stolen in fraud. There were at least 20 who became victims of identity theft and the stolen information were used to open multiple Capital One credit card accounts. Capital One stated that most of the accounts were identified as fraudulent and were closed right away. Investigators believe Morris had created the accounts through the internet from his Comcast account. An AT&T account was also used to fill out other forms and the name on it was Morris Hines, which was his name before he legally changed it to Jonathan William Morris II. When Morris wife, Veronica Hines, was asked about the allegations, she denied Morris having part in it. She does not believe it to be true and said that her husband was being falsely accused. Hines has worked with her husband in the company for five years and described him as someone who would never commit such crimes. They are also said to have seven children. Hines was not aware of any charges that Morris was facing, until police arrived at the home with a warrant for his arrest. She was said to have her kids behind closed doors as she defended her husband. She stated that when they work, they do not have any access to any private information of others. But collected evidence and information from investigators say otherwise. Reports also say surveillance video from a local bank showed Morris depositing the stolen checks. Hines still does not believe the accusations against her husband. Morris was arrested and faces multiple felony counts including use of ID of another without their consent, fraudulent use of ID, and uttering forged bill. He was released on $200,000 bond. Morris cleaning company is no longer in business.

Man Arrested for Attempted Murder A man was accused after shooting a 38year-old woman, Michelle Rae Jordan, during a robbery. A dispute was said to have occurred during a drug transaction, which involved less than $50, with Jordan and 20-year-old James Greene. Greene then pulled out a gun and shot once at Jordan while she was standing in the doorway of her home. Jordan was taken to the hospital and treated for her gunshot wounds. When she recovered she was given a photo lineup to identify the suspect who shot her. She pointed out Greene as the shooter. The shooting was also caught on surveillance video, which showed the incident at a distance. In the video a shot can be heard and a figure can be seen running from the apartment to a getaway car, which drives away. The vehicle was a red sedan with Texas plates. Greene was arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder and multiple drug charges. Police are still looking for the getaway driver. Jonathan William Morris II John Greene

Fire Safety Tips Winter is here and the weather just keeps getting colder and colder. There is nothing more satisfying than sitting next to a warm fireplace at times like this, but there may be some things to take into consideration. Here are some tips to keep your fireplace safe: € Have flues and chimneys inspected before each heating season for leakage and blockage by creosote or debris. € Open the fireplace damper before lighting the fire and keep it open until the ashes are cool. Never close the damper or go to bed if the ashes are still warm. An open damper may help prevent buildup of poisonous gases inside the home. € Never use gasoline, charcoal lighter or other fuel to light or relight a fire because the vapors can explode. Never keep flammable fuels or materials near a fire. Never store flammable liquids in your home. € Never use charcoal in a fireplace because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. € Keep a screen or glass enclosure around a fireplace to prevent sparks or embers from igniting flammable materials.

According to the report, employees said that when the child was dropped, he kept yelling for Momma, but when Mumin came, he kept saying, no no. After much questioning, Mumin finally admit she was lying. She said she wanted to claim the child because she didnt want him to be taken away from Cooks. Deputies were able to locate the getaway vehicle at a fast food restaurant not too far away. Cooks was arrested and the child was taken into DCF custody. Cooks was charged with petit theft and causing a minor to be delinquent. Man Keeps Crashing in Carjacking Spree St. Louis, MONorman Tammons, 31, approached a man at a hospital with a knife and ordered him to take him to his car. Tammons stole the mans Honda CRV and drove off, but crashed it into a divider of an exit ramp on the freeway. He got out of the car and immediately went to steal another vehicle, a Mitsubishi Mirage. He then crashed the Mirage as well into a median a mile away. Tammons then ran to Shell/Circle K convenience store and confronted a man telling him that he had a gun. Instead of stealing his car, he went into the convenience store to loot the cash register and took the clerks key to a 1999 Ford Taurus. Tammons drove off with the Taurus but crashed again for the last time after a mile and police were finally able to arrest him. Tammons was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries.

DECEMBER 17, 2011THE STARPR 1 P P R R E E P P R R A A P P Y Y o o u u t t h h S S e e c c t t i i o o n n THOUSANDS OF JACKSONVILLE CHILDREN BENEFIT AT ANNUAL EVENT2011 marked the 13th year for the Childrens Christmas Party of Jacksonville Through numerous charitable donations and volunteer efforts, the Childrens Christmas Party of Jacksonville provided thousands of gifts to less fortunate children. Jacksonville is an amazingly generous city where people understand the true value of giving,Ž said Mayor Alvin Brown. Especially in tough times, we must not forget that there are people struggling out there. These types of events dont just provide gifts. They provide a sense of hope and care that inspires people to remain optimistic, humble and thankful.Ž Saturdays event marked the 13th year for the Childrens Christmas Party of Jacksonville. This is the largest one-day toy giveaway in the Jacksonville area. The party is open to children age 12 and younger who otherwise might not receive gifts this year. The party began in 1999 and has grown into a major event at the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center. Organizers collected nearly 30,000 brand new toys, 600 bicycles and helmets, and more than 50,000 novelty toys, pencils and coloring books. Thousands of children lined up with their parents as the line snaked from the convention centers parking lot toward Bay Street and around the corner on Myrtle Street. The mayor walked that route greeting people with holiday wishes. However, he had a little competition for the kids attention as Jaguars mascot Jaxson De Ville came roaring through the parking lot on a miniature motorcycle. Diane Halverson, the events executive director, said this years party was especially important as Jacksonville continues to pull away from the housing market crash and recession. Its awful to think that some children will go without toys. It sounds like that could never happen … but it can,Ž Halverson said. More than 5,500 children received gifts at this years party. Halverson said all leftover toys were donated to the international charity Hope worldwide for further distribution. Countless volunteers from companies like Mayo Clinic and Bank of America spent the morning at the Prime Osborn handing out everything from toy trucks to sporting goods and small electronics. Three-year-old twins Jamarri and Ja-quan Solomon left the convention center with brand new bicycles. The boys father, Matthew Solomon was anxious to get a picture as they sat together on their new wheels, a look made complete by brand new protective helmets. Solomon reflected that he did not get his first bike until he was 9, something that made the moment all the more touching. Im proud and theyre proud,Ž Solomon said.

DECEMBER 17, 2011PREP RAP PR 2 New Report on Homeless Children in America All 50 States Profiled and Ranked from Best (1) To Worst (50)Release of new report America's Youngest Outcasts 2010, a state report card on child homelessness. www.HomelessChildrenAmerica.org On Tuesday, December 13, The National Center on Family Homelessness released America's Youngest Outcasts 2010, a new report on child homelessness that ranks all 50 states from best (1) to worst (50), and reports the number of homeless children in each state and nationally. The 124-page report, which updates a previous study by The National Center, looks at trends from 2006 to 2010, using data and research on the extent of child homelessness, child well-being, risk for homelessness, and state policy and planning efforts. The report also offers policy solutions in areas of housing, child care, education, domestic violence, and employment. The new report is available to the media at www.HomelessChildrenAmerica.org. Staff from The National Center are available for interviews and to answer questions. Children experiencing homelessness in America suffer from hunger, poor physical and emotional health, and limited proficiency in reading and math. The constant barrage of stressful and traumatic experiences has profound effects on their development and ability to learn. Campaign to End Child Homelessness The Campaign to End Child Homelessness was launched by The National Center on Family Homelessness to increase public awareness, inform policy solutions, share tools and best practices with community caregivers, and lead state and national advocacy efforts. For more information, visit www.HomelessChildrenAmerica.org.

Im talking about empowering our young people to reach their full potential.Ž Mayors Mentors is a partnership among City Hall and nonprofit agencies which specialize in pairing new, highly qualified mentors with students in Duval County Public Schools. The program is being rolled out in two phases. In phase one, the mayor is seeking to have 500 new mentors trained and paired with students by April 1, 2012. Phase two will kick off in the spring and will include private-sector funding with a goal of developing mentors through the citys communityand faith-based programs. Mayors Mentors is designed to help develop Jacksonvilles youths at zero cost to the taxpayer. Mayor Brown said the program has been another successful venture into public-private partnership for the city. We are all in, mister mayor,Ž said Duval County Public Schools Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals, congratulating Mayor Brown during the Mayors Mentors kick-off luncheon. We appreciate your leadership and were looking forward to working together to push Jacksonville to the next level.Ž Education is a top priority for Mayor Brown. Earlier this year, the mayor appointed Dr. Donnie Horner from Jacksonville University to serve as the first education commissioner in the citys history. As part of his duties, Dr. Horner serves as the direct communication line between partnering organizations and the Mayors Office to ensure that Mayors Mentors continues to grow effectively to strengthen the community. We have a mayor with a vision,Ž said Dr. Horner. We have a mayor unwilling to sit on the sidelines of the educational landscape.Ž Studies from Big Brothers Big Sisters and the National Mentoring Partnership show that pairing a youth with a caring adult creates a positive environment for learning. Students with mentors are 46 percent less likely to experiment with drugs or alcohol. They also experience fewer discipline problems and are more likely to go to college. Mentoring works and Mayor Browns vision and leadership in creating the Mayors Mentors is a huge step forward for children across our community,Ž said Connie Hodges, president of United Way of Northeast Florida. With the support of the business community, our education leaders, retired teachers, community organizations and individuals, we can increase academic success and support for Jacksonvilles children.Ž The United Way of Northeast Florida is one of many community organizations partnering to make Mayors Mentors possible. Others on a lengthy list include: Communities in Schools of Jacksonville, The Bridge of Northeast Florida, Take Stock In Children and the Jacksonville Childrens Commission.

The Jacksonville Transit Authority presented a star shaped plaque to Dr. Joseph Johnson, Chairman for the Concerned Citizens Seeking Improved Passenger Decorum, an advocate group that was formed in 1999 in an effort to enhance the quality of bus transportation and customer safety and respect on city buses. Dr. Johnsons efforts caused the city to equip audion messages such as Dont cuss on the bus. Mr. Michael Blaylock said during the presentation that one should never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: Indeed its the only thing that has. Howard University is known for its academics, not sports. However, the womens basketball team closed the first half and opened the second half of its game Sunday against the Navy womens basketball team on significant runs that resulted in the Lady Bison posting a 60-50 victory over the Midshipmen at Burr Gymnasium in Washington, D.C. This is a first. Above are two composite sketches from two victims in two different parts of the city of Jacksonville. The situations point to the same man even though two composites are shown. Officers said that last Friday, the rapist forced a woman into his car off Arlington Express where he drove her to a parking lot nearby and raped her. The other victim was also forced into his car and sexually assaulted. They were both forced into the mans car at gunpoint. The incidents happened several days apart and on different sides of town. Both described the rapist as a black man between 25 and 35 years of age, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. They also said that the man was driving a green Ford Taurus appearing to be from 1999 to 2002. They also described the vehicle as having a musty odor inside. This person has not been located so it is urgent that women in the area are careful and alert. If you have any information that could lead to the identity of this man, please call Crime Stoppers at 866845-TIPS. Atlanta was pleased with their win but not jumping for joy when feeling the sadness for their neighboring state team that had just received the title of the first minority owned NFL team and being led by the teams first Black coach, though interim.. One cannot say the team did not show, they say they feel the team was extra excited. Whatever the case, the game ended with the same score that the Jaguars had Monday over their own state team, the Tampa Buccaneers 41-14. What a coincident! Shahid Khan said on Wednesday during a news conference at the NFL owners meeting that he was very humble in his acquisition of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He committed to do whatever it takes for the Jaguars to become a winning team. The official ownership of the team from Wayne Weaver to Shahid Khan will not occur until January 4, 2012. After the game Thursday night, the Atlanta Falcons said they will continue their effort to focus on the game and give their city their best game. They are now 9-5. Jacksonville players said they wish they could have executed their game plan better. Their desire to make their new owner proud that he made the choice to purchase the team and are anxious to meet him and work with him. Right now, their standing is 4-10 but the leading rusher in the NFL, Maurice Jones-Drew, is still a Jaguar.

Davis was killed by lethal injection on September 21 of this year. The execution was covered by international media, and there are millions around the world who consider the execution of Davis to be one of the most symbolic indicators of injustice in American history. Davis was executed after several witnesses recanted their stories, and even NAACP President Ben Jealous has repeatedly stated that the real killer is on the loose. Even as she fought her cancer, Ms. Davis-Correia fought diligently for her brothers freedom. She fought to very end, as did her brother Troy.

It was a war that he opposed from the start, inherited as president and is now bringing to a close, leaving behind an Iraq still struggling. But he sought to pronounce a noble end to a fight that has cost nearly 4,500 American lives and more than 100,000 Iraqi lives.

In 1959 the school closed its doors and merged with Mather Academy, another wellknown all-girls boarding school for AfricanAmericans, in Camden, South Carolina, My brother Jimmy and I attended Boylan Havens kindergarten with other brother/sister duos including Roxanne and Freddie Iszard, Linda and Ed Witsell, Deborah (Daniels) and Bruce West.

Mr. Shirk added that by his estimation, violent crime the majority of the time is directly related to illegal drugs. These were some of the ideas he presented as a panelist at the University of North Florida on November 29th during The 904 Project: A Town Hall Event. The Criminology students here at UNF and the organizers of this discussion should be commended for initiating this important conversation, said the Public Defender. Ninety-nine percent of the time, our office is representing the individuals that make up the statistics presented at the Town Hall. We join with the different sectors of the community represented here in the desire to continue working toward solutions and conversations like this will keep ideas flowing. The event was the culmination of a research project done by UNF's graduate criminology students who were inspired by the award-winning documentary film The 904. The students presented new data on crime rates in Jacksonville and a provocative media audit of local coverage of crime issues. The student research team (pictured, right) consisted of Laura Davie, Kevin Larose-Renner, Sigrid Wellhausen and Robert Farley. The 904 Project featured an introduction by UNF President John Delaney and a Town Hall Panel moderated by UNF Criminology & Criminal Justice Department Chair, Dr. Michael Hallett and WJCT's Melissa Ross. Panelists who attended in addition to Shirk were: Dolly Dillin from Jacksonville Children's Commission, Frank Denton the Senior Editor of the Florida Times-Union/jacksonville.com, Alton Yates, Civil Rights Icon and Kevin Gay the President & CEO, Operation New Hope..

DECEMBER 17, 2011 THESTAR LOCAL FLORIDASECTION B Article by M.E. Ford, photos courtesy of The City of Jacksonville and Edith Walker of the Florida Star On November 22, more than 1,000 seniors attended the 25th Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon for Seniors at the Wyndham Riverwalk Hotel. The luncheon was organized 25 years ago by Joan Turner who credits Emily Timmons and Amanda King of radio station WCGL and the Florida Star Newspaper for responding to Turners challenge to Adopt-A-Senior. The program was started in 1986 and was designed to benefit frail and homebound seniors from various long-term care settings in Duval County. To date, over 20,000 seniors have attended the event. Those seniors in attendance are sponsored by individuals, businesses, elected officials, civic or fraternal groups and faith-based organizations. This year Mayor Alvin Brown attended, and declared that Seniors are special and are to be remembered as we are standing on their shoulders Bishop Rudolph McKissick Sr. was the featured speaker. The theme for this year was Celebrate Life. Mrs. Turners granddaughters performed and her husband of 46 years, Aaron Turner, presented her an envelope containing additional funds from donors as Deborah Maiden, President of WCGL looks on in one of the pictures. Later, Councilmen Reginald Brown and Warren Jones presented a certificate to Mrs. Turner as Councilman Jones advised the council that Mrs. Turner has never been before the council to request funds. She does it all on her own. The council and audience applauded this history. To add to the love and respect Jacksonville has for its senior citizens, Mayor Brown hosted an event at the Prime Osborn Convention wherein 2,000 attended as they gathered for an afternoon of dancing and dinner. Mayor Brown told the audience, Youve set the foundation for Jacksonvilles future by building your homes, raising your families and starting businesses here. He added that seventy-one thousand military veterans throughout Northeast Florida are age 65 or older. In fact, there are 425,000 people 60 or older, that live throughout metropolitan Jacksonville.

Community ActivitiesPAGE B 2 THE STAR DECEMBER 17, 2011 Time-Saving Tips And Tools To Help You Multi-Task (StatePoint) With todays busy schedules, most people wish they simply had more time. But while you cant add hours to the day, you can free up your time by streamlining your to-do list with time-saving tools. From the kitchen to the office, people are looking for new technologies to help them become more efficient. In fact, according to a survey conducted by research firm Toluna, and cordless phone manufacturer VTech Communications, 81 percent of respondents rank devices that help you multi-task and get more things done as very important. So if you are feeling strapped for time, stay up to date with these multitasking tips: Automate Your Finances By automating your finances, your banking can take place while you sleep. The first step is to sign up for direct deposit at work. Likewise, you can set up direct debit for your monthly bills. If you need to access any of your statements, you no longer need to sort through your file cabinet. Its all easily searchable through your online account. So stop sorting mail, filing, paying bills and visiting your brick and mortar bank, and go take a bubble bath instead. Reclaim Your Hands While talking on the phone, youre probably also typing, cooking, doing laundry or some other task. And you would probably be completing the other task more efficiently if you had both hands free. Invest in a phone system for your home or office that will give you your hands back. For example, the LS6475-3 phone system from VTech enables users to answer calls from a cordless headset and conference conversations while accomplishing other tasks such as cleaning, finalizing work presentations or preparing dinner. If you conduct business both from the home and on-the-go, consider VTehs Connect-to-Cell phone system, DS6421-3, which syncs your cellular calls to a regular handset phone. This capability gives you better sound quality and the security of a landline, while still using your mobile number for business calls at home. For more information, visit www.vtechphones.com. E-Read Sorting through library stacks, putting a book on hold, and waiting three weeks for your pick to become available is a charming experience. However, its also unbearably time consuming. Save yourself the trouble and download exactly what books you want to your ereader. Some public libraries even have downloadable books online. Order Food Online Nothing saves time like ordering in. And now its easier than ever. New food ordering sites such as Seamless.com partner with thousands of restaurants in cities nationwide, so that you can order dinner, even while checking e-mail. Make digging through your menu drawer and repeating your address three times a thing of the past. Wether youre a business professional, full-time homemaker or both, you can create more time in your day by making the best use of the latest technologies to help you get more done. ULYSSES W. WATKINS JR., MD HEALTH NOTES ANAPHYLAXIS (ALLERGIC SHOCKLIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY) GENERAL INFORMATION DEFINITION: A life-threatening allergic response to medications and many other allergy-causing substances. Reactions that occur quickly tend to be the most severe. BODY PARTS INVOLVED: Blood vessels throughout the body; heart; lungs; skin. SEX OR AGE MOST AFFECTED: Both sexes; all ages. SIGNS & SYMPTOMS: Any of the following may occur within seconds or a few minutes after exposure to a substance to which you are very allergic: *Tingling or numbness around the mouth. *Sneezing coughing or wheezing. *Swelling around face or hands. *Itching all over, often accompanied by hives. *Watery eyes. *Feeling of anxiety. *Tightness in the chest, difficulty breathing. *Swelling or itching in the mouth or throat. *Pounding heart, faintness, weak, rapid pulse. *Loss of consciousness. Not all symptoms occur. Seek immediate help for any. CAUSES: Eating or receiving injections of something to which you are sensitive. The allergic response to neutralize or get rid of the material results in a life-threatening overreaction. Things which cause reactions most often include: *Medication of all types, especially penicillins. Injections are riskier than oral drugs. Stings or bites from insects, such as bees, biting ants and some spiders. *Injected chemicals used in some types of x-ray studies. *Foods, especially eggs, beans, seafood, fruit. Vaccines; pollen. RISK INCREASES WITH A previous mild allergic response to things listed above. *History of eczema, hay fever or asthma. HOW TO PREVENT: If you have an allergic history: *Tell your doctor before accepting any medication. Before you are given a shot, ask what it is. *Keep any anaphylaxis kit, such as Ana-kit, with you at all times. Be sure your family knows how to use the kit if you have a reaction. *Always remain in your doctors office, 15 minutes after receiving any injection. Report any symptoms immediately. *Protect yourself from insect bites or sting. If you should get insect bites or stings you should consider immunization (allergy shots) as a preventative measure. WHAT TO EXPECT DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES: Laboratory skin tests to determine sensitivities. APPROPRIATE HEALTHCARE: Doctors treatments. Long-term treatment involves desensitization therapy. POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS: Without proper treatment, anaphylaxis causes shock, cardiac arrest, death. PROBABLE OUTCOME: Full recovery with prompt treatment. HOW TO TREAT GENERAL MEASURES If you observe signs of anaphylaxis in someone and he or she stops breathing: Call or have someone call 911 (emergency) or call 0 (operator) for an ambu lance or medical help. (If the victim is a child, perform lifesaving meas ures for 1 minute before calling for emergency help.) Begin mouth-tomouth breathing immediately. If there is no heartbeat, give exter nal cardiac massage. Dont stop CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) until help arrives. Be alert to the possibility of a reaction when taking any medicine and be prepared to respond quickly if symptoms occur. If you have had a previ oussevere allergic reaction, always carry your anaphylaxis kit. *Wear a Medic-Alert tag that indicates your allergic condition. MEDICATION Adrenalin by injection is the only effective immediate treatment. *Aminophylline, cortisone drugs or antihistamines, given after the adrenalin, help prevent the return of acute symptoms. ACTIVITY: Resume your normal activities as soon as symptoms improve after an attack. Stay under someones observation for 24 hours in case symptoms recur DIET: Avoid foods to which you are allergic. CALL YOUR DOCTOR IF You have symptoms of anaphylaxis. This is an emergency!

His wife never worked, so he was the sole provider for the family and provided a good life for his wife and step-daughter. His step-daughter had 8 children and he accepted all of them as his grandchildren. Upon the death of his sweetheart, David gave his step-daughter $60,000 cash and $10,000 to each of her children ($140,000). David was a deacon in his church and after having been widowed for two years, he became lonely and married an elderly church lady largely for companionship, but also because he had fallen in love. Shortly after the wedding, much to his surprise, 2 of his granddaughters came into his house and right in front of his face, took all of his china, crystal and silver. They claimed that it belonged to their grandmother and no other woman had a right to use it. RESULT: Now the old man who has given so much to so many for so long, has been totally crushed by the conduct of the selfish few. He is now working with us to make plans for the rest of his life and for the distribution of his assets.

It was in 1978 that rapper Keith Cowboy Wiggins, one of the original members of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, coined the term Hip Hop. He was teasing a friend who was in the Army by scat singing the words hip/hop/ hip/hop to mimic the rhythmic style that the soldiers used to march. He then worked the routine into his stage act. The disco artists at the time looked down on the new music style born in the South Bronx that incorporated break-beats, looping, scratching, vocal beat boxing and rapping and dissed the MCs and DJs as hip hoppers. But the movement caught on via pioneers such as DJ Clive Kool Herc Campbell, Afrika Bambaataa and his Universal Zulu Nation, Grand Wizard Theodore and the first wave of rap/hip hop artists that included The Sugar Hill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Doug E. Fresh, The Fat Boys, Biz Markie and others. At first the music was poetic, expressive and political. Then West Cost gangsta rap entered the scene and got everybodys attention. The music and the projection of the gangsta lifestyle crossed over big time in appeal to White suburban youth and the powers that be quickly seized the opportunity to exploit it not only for the mega cash profits but also to allow the negative aspects such as cursing, degrading women of color, the glorification of violence, lack of respect for education, pimping, hoeing, drug pushing etc, to have their evil full effects in the Black Afrikan community. As a result, rap/hip-hop music and the video images that they produce have suffered a serious black eye in terms of public perception and reputation. With such a negative stigma on rap and hip hop, how could any rapper use that medium to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ? Well the gospel rap movement sprang up several years ago along with the new age hip hop churches. One of the proponents of gospel rap is Flame aka Rev. Marcus Gray. Flame is fast becoming a house hold name in gospel rap. The St. Louis, Mo., native has received nominations from The Grammys, The Stellar and Dove Awards for his CD Revived. He has his own record label Clear Sight Music and is a graduate with a BA Degree from the Boyce College Seminary. Flame is married and currently attends The Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY., where he is working towards his Masters in Biblical Counseling. Flame wasnt always on the straight and narrow path. He had a troubled childhood and was going the wrong way when the combination of a near fatal car accident and the death of his grandmother lead him to accept Christ at the age of 16. Given everything that was said earlier in this article, has the old school, traditional church accepted gospel rap? Flame has to chuckle at this one and says, Its been rotisserie style but I think they have definitely come our way. In the beginning stages of that new genre Christian Rap, there was a little push back. But over the years I think that as theyve seen the fruit of it, theyve seen the seriousness, the commitment to ministry, its been a little more ease. So Im excited to see where its headed. The young hip hop church goers have label the traditional church as The Old Model which they say no longer works and describes their way of worship as The New Model which could cause conflict. What is lames take on that? He explains, Well the first thing I would say is that I appreciate the caution from the older generation because theyre looking to pass the baton and they dont want to pass it to anybody. So I appreciate the wisdom of moving slow, examining it to see if it is legitimate, will they bare the name of Christ properly, will they trample the name of Christ, so I appreciate the wisdom and the slow pace. But as far as there being a conflict, I wouldnt necessarily use that word. I think its probably a little strong. I think at best its just a lack of understanding. So the younger generation with the energy and the zeal, theyre just ready to go full fledge, full force thinking that we have all the answers, we know the way when the old generation is saying yeah, weve been there also. Here are some things that we learned that you need to hold on to. So I think its more so a communication issue where we need to sit down and educate one another on what we bring to the table and how we can actually work together because truthfully, we need each other. THESTAR ENTERTAINMENT Flame Taking Gospel Rap To The Next Level!By Rych McCain, feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net and Facebook Photo Courtesy of Clear Sight Music Rych McCains Hollyhood Notes!Condolences : Music Industry vet John Atterberry died at Cedars-Sinai Hospital of gun shot wounds to his face and upper body last Friday 12-9-11 when a lone, crazed gunman was in the middle of the street at the famed corner of Sunset Bl. And Vine streets in Hollywood, shooting into cars at random. According to authorities, police shat the man dead on the sight when he ran out of ammunition. Atterberry was a long time record industry manager and promoter working with acts such as The Spice Girls, Brandy, Jessica Simpson and others. Our most spiritual meditations go out to Atterberrys family, associates and friends.

Movies : The Sitter. Twentieth Century Fox Pictures. Starring Jonah Hill, Max Records, Landry Bender, Kevin Hernandez. Ari Graynor, JB Smoove and Sam Rockwell. Directed by David Gordon Green Screenplay by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. Produced by Michael De Luca. Here we have one of those a-million-thingscan-go-wrong-in-one-night flicks. It is funny and will keep you guessing. You can count on a Jonah Hill movie to do what he does best and the children from hell that he has to baby sit keep the pace jumping from start to finish. New Years Eve. New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures. Starring Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Chris Ludacris Bridges, Robert De Niro, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Hector Elizondo, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara. Directed by Garry Marshall. Written by Katherine Fugate. Produced by Mike Karz, Wayne Rice and Gary Marshall. It can be tricky to have an all-star cast ensemble to make a movie but it works OK when several stories are told with their own set of stars. As with all flicks of this nature, it is entertaining.

It was in 1978 that rapper Keith Cowboy Wiggins, one of the original members of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, coined the term Hip Hop. He was teasing a friend who was in the Army by scat singing the words hip/hop/ hip/hop to mimic the rhythmic style that the soldiers used to march. He then worked the routine into his stage act. The disco artists at the time looked down on the new music style born in the South Bronx that incorporated break-beats, looping, scratching, vocal beat boxing and rapping and dissed the MCs and DJs as hip hoppers. But the movement caught on via pioneers such as DJ Clive Kool Herc Campbell, Afrika Bambaataa and his Universal Zulu Nation, Grand Wizard Theodore and the first wave of rap/hip hop artists that included The Sugar Hill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Doug E. Fresh, The Fat Boys, Biz Markie and others. At first the music was poetic, expressive and political. Then West Cost gangsta rap entered the scene and got everybodys attention. The music and the projection of the gangsta lifestyle crossed over big time in appeal to White suburban youth and the powers that be quickly seized the opportunity to exploit it not only for the mega cash profits but also to allow the negative aspects such as cursing, degrading women of color, the glorification of violence, lack of respect for education, pimping, hoeing, drug pushing etc, to have their evil full effects in the Black Afrikan community. As a result, rap/hip-hop music and the video images that they produce have suffered a serious black eye in terms of public perception and reputation. With such a negative stigma on rap and hip hop, how could any rapper use that medium to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ? Well the gospel rap movement sprang up several years ago along with the new age hip hop churches. One of the proponents of gospel rap is Flame aka Rev. Marcus Gray. Flame is fast becoming a house hold name in gospel rap. The St. Louis, Mo., native has received nominations from The Grammys, The Stellar and Dove Awards for his CD Revived. He has his own record label Clear Sight Music and is a graduate with a BA Degree from the Boyce College Seminary. Flame is married and currently attends The Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY., where he is working towards his Masters in Biblical Counseling. Flame wasnt always on the straight and narrow path. He had a troubled childhood and was going the wrong way when the combination of a near fatal car accident and the death of his grandmother lead him to accept Christ at the age of 16. Given everything that was said earlier in this article, has the old school, traditional church accepted gospel rap? Flame has to chuckle at this one and says, Its been rotisserie style but I think they have definitely come our way. In the beginning stages of that new genre Christian Rap, there was a little push back. But over the years I think that as theyve seen the fruit of it, theyve seen the seriousness, the commitment to ministry, its been a little more ease. So Im excited to see where its headed. The young hip hop church goers have label the traditional church as The Old Model which they say no longer works and describes their way of worship as The New Model which could cause conflict. What is lames take on that? He explains, Well the first thing I would say is that I appreciate the caution from the older generation because theyre looking to pass the baton and they dont want to pass it to anybody. So I appreciate the wisdom of moving slow, examining it to see if it is legitimate, will they bare the name of Christ properly, will they trample the name of Christ, so I appreciate the wisdom and the slow pace. But as far as there being a conflict, I wouldnt necessarily use that word. I think its probably a little strong. I think at best its just a lack of understanding. So the younger generation with the energy and the zeal, theyre just ready to go full fledge, full force thinking that we have all the answers, we know the way when the old generation is saying yeah, weve been there also. Here are some things that we learned that you need to hold on to. So I think its more so a communication issue where we need to sit down and educate one another on what we bring to the table and how we can actually work together because truthfully, we need each other. THESTAR ENTERTAINMENT Flame Taking Gospel Rap To The Next Level!By Rych McCain, feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net and Facebook Photo Courtesy of Clear Sight Music Rych McCains Hollyhood Notes!Condolences : Music Industry vet John Atterberry died at Cedars-Sinai Hospital of gun shot wounds to his face and upper body last Friday 12-9-11 when a lone, crazed gunman was in the middle of the street at the famed corner of Sunset Bl. And Vine streets in Hollywood, shooting into cars at random. According to authorities, police shat the man dead on the sight when he ran out of ammunition. Atterberry was a long time record industry manager and promoter working with acts such as The Spice Girls, Brandy, Jessica Simpson and others. Our most spiritual meditations go out to Atterberrys family, associates and friends.

It is funny and will keep you guessing. You can count on a Jonah Hill movie to do what he does best and the children from hell that he has to baby sit keep the pace jumping from start to finish. New Years Eve. New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures.

Directed by Garry Marshall. Written by Katherine Fugate. Produced by Mike Karz, Wayne Rice and Gary Marshall. It can be tricky to have an all-star cast ensemble to make a movie but it works OK when several stories are told with their own set of stars. As with all flicks of this nature, it is entertaining.

Man of Cleaning Company Steals Identities A man is accused of using his cleaning company to steal personal information from customers. The owner of the business is 45-year-old Jonathan William Morris II, who ID fraud from March 24, 2011 to September 2011. Many country clubs have used the service of Morris company, such as the Eagle Harbor Golf Club where Morris stole the majority of the identities. An amount of at least $10,000 was reported stolen in fraud. There were at least 20 who became victims of identity theft and the stolen information were used to open multiple Capital One credit card accounts. Capital One stated that most of the accounts were identified as fraudulent and were closed right away. Investigators believe Morris had created the accounts through the internet from his Comcast account. An AT&T account was also used to fill out other forms and the name on it was Morris Hines, which was his name before he legally changed it to Jonathan William Morris II. When Morris wife, Veronica Hines, was asked about the allegations, she denied Morris having part in it. She does not believe it to be true and said that her husband was being falsely accused. Hines has worked with her husband in the company for five years and described him as someone who would never commit such crimes. They are also said to have seven children. Hines was not aware of any charges that Morris was facing, until police arrived at the home with a warrant for his arrest. She was said to have her kids behind closed doors as she defended her husband. She stated that when they work, they do not have any access to any private information of others. But collected evidence and information from investigators say otherwise. Reports also say surveillance video from a local bank showed Morris depositing the stolen checks. Hines still does not believe the accusations against her husband.

Fire Safety Tips Winter is here and the weather just keeps getting colder and colder. There is nothing more satisfying than sitting next to a warm fireplace at times like this, but there may be some things to take into consideration. Here are some tips to keep your fireplace safe: Have flues and chimneys inspected before each heating season for leakage and blockage by creosote or debris. Open the fireplace damper before lighting the fire and keep it open until the ashes are cool. Never close the damper or go to bed if the ashes are still warm. An open damper may help prevent buildup of poisonous gases inside the home. Never use gasoline, charcoal lighter or other fuel to light or relight a fire because the vapors can explode. Never keep flammable fuels or materials near a fire. Never store flammable liquids in your home. Never use charcoal in a fireplace because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep a screen or glass enclosure around a fireplace to prevent sparks or embers from igniting flammable materials.

DECEMBER 17, 2011 THE STAR PR 1 P P R R E E P P R R A A P P Y Y o o u u t t h h S S e e c c t t i i o o n n THOUSANDS OF JACKSONVILLE CHILDREN BENEFIT AT ANNUAL EVENT2011 marked the 13th year for the Childrens Christmas Party of Jacksonville Through numerous charitable donations and volunteer efforts, the Childrens Christmas Party of Jacksonville provided thousands of gifts to less fortunate children. Jacksonville is an amazingly generous city where people understand the true value of giving, said Mayor Alvin Brown. Especially in tough times, we must not forget that there are people struggling out there. These types of events dont just provide gifts. They provide a sense of hope and care that inspires people to remain optimistic, humble and thankful. Saturdays event marked the 13th year for the Childrens Christmas Party of Jacksonville. This is the largest one-day toy giveaway in the Jacksonville area. The party is open to children age 12 and younger who otherwise might not receive gifts this year. The party began in 1999 and has grown into a major event at the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center. Organizers collected nearly 30,000 brand new toys, 600 bicycles and helmets, and more than 50,000 novelty toys, pencils and coloring books. Thousands of children lined up with their parents as the line snaked from the convention centers parking lot toward Bay Street and around the corner on Myrtle Street. The mayor walked that route greeting people with holiday wishes. However, he had a little competition for the kids attention as Jaguars mascot Jaxson De Ville came roaring through the parking lot on a miniature motorcycle. Diane Halverson, the events executive director, said this years party was especially important as Jacksonville continues to pull away from the housing market crash and recession. Its awful to think that some children will go without toys. It sounds like that could never happen but it can, Halverson said. More than 5,500 children received gifts at this years party. Halverson said all leftover toys were donated to the international charity Hope worldwide for further distribution. Countless volunteers from companies like Mayo Clinic and Bank of America spent the morning at the Prime Osborn handing out everything from toy trucks to sporting goods and small electronics. Three-year-old twins Jamarri and Ja-quan Solomon left the convention center with brand new bicycles. The boys father, Matthew Solomon was anxious to get a picture as they sat together on their new wheels, a look made complete by brand new protective helmets. Solomon reflected that he did not get his first bike until he was 9, something that made the moment all the more touching. Im proud and theyre proud, Solomon said.

DECEMBER 17, 2011 PREP RAP PR 2 New Report on Homeless Children in America All 50 States Profiled and Ranked from Best (1) To Worst (50)Release of new report America's Youngest Outcasts 2010, a state report card on child homelessness. www.HomelessChildrenAmerica.org On Tuesday, December 13, The National Center on Family Homelessness released America's Youngest Outcasts 2010, a new report on child homelessness that ranks all 50 states from best (1) to worst (50), and reports the number of homeless children in each state and nationally. The 124-page report, which updates a previous study by The National Center, looks at trends from 2006 to 2010, using data and research on the extent of child homelessness, child well-being, risk for homelessness, and state policy and planning efforts. The report also offers policy solutions in areas of housing, child care, education, domestic violence, and employment. The new report is available to the media at www.HomelessChildrenAmerica.org. Staff from The National Center are available for interviews and to answer questions. Children experiencing homelessness in America suffer from hunger, poor physical and emotional health, and limited proficiency in reading and math. The constant barrage of stressful and traumatic experiences has profound effects on their development and ability to learn. Campaign to End Child Homelessness The Campaign to End Child Homelessness was launched by The National Center on Family Homelessness to increase public awareness, inform policy solutions, share tools and best practices with community caregivers, and lead state and national advocacy efforts.

DECEMBER 17, 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 Mayor Brown keeping commitment to education with Mayors Mentors programMayor Alvin Brown has unveiled his Mayors Mentors program, an effort to pool volunteer resources throughout Jacksonville to inspire youth leadership and raise the graduation rate. By exposing young people to role models, we will teach them to become role models, said the mayor. Im talking about more than books and lessons. Im talking about empowering our young people to reach their full potential. Mayors Mentors is a partnership among City Hall and nonprofit agencies which specialize in pairing new, highly qualified mentors with students in Duval County Public Schools. The program is being rolled out in two phases. In phase one, the mayor is seeking to have 500 new mentors trained and paired with students by April 1, 2012. Phase two will kick off in the spring and will include private-sector funding with a goal of developing mentors through the citys communityand faith-based programs. Mayors Mentors is designed to help develop Jacksonvilles youths at zero cost to the taxpayer. Mayor Brown said the program has been another successful venture into public-private partnership for the city. We are all in, mister mayor, said Duval County Public Schools Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals, congratulating Mayor Brown during the Mayors Mentors kick-off luncheon. We appreciate your leadership and were looking forward to working together to push Jacksonville to the next level. Education is a top priority for Mayor Brown. Earlier this year, the mayor appointed Dr. Donnie Horner from Jacksonville University to serve as the first education commissioner in the citys history. As part of his duties, Dr. Horner serves as the direct communication line between partnering organizations and the Mayors Office to ensure that Mayors Mentors continues to grow effectively to strengthen the community. We have a mayor with a vision, said Dr. Horner. We have a mayor unwilling to sit on the sidelines of the educational landscape. Studies from Big Brothers Big Sisters and the National Mentoring Partnership show that pairing a youth with a caring adult creates a positive environment for learning. Students with mentors are 46 percent less likely to experiment with drugs or alcohol. They also experience fewer discipline problems and are more likely to go to college. Mentoring works and Mayor Browns vision and leadership in creating the Mayors Mentors is a huge step forward for children across our community, said Connie Hodges, president of United Way of Northeast Florida. With the support of the business community, our education leaders, retired teachers, community organizations and individuals, we can increase academic success and support for Jacksonvilles children. The United Way of Northeast Florida is one of many community organizations partnering to make Mayors Mentors possible. Others on a lengthy list include: Communities in Schools of Jacksonville, The Bridge of Northeast Florida, Take Stock In Children and the Jacksonville Childrens Commission.
