He does not hold back as the commercial continues with Mrs. Clinton speaking in 2008 while running against President Obama, says, Shame on you Barack Obama.Ž During a press conference Thursday morning, the day after Romney appeared before the NAACP, a report was released by the Boston Globe that shows Mitt Romney remained chief executive and chairman of Bain Capital for three years longer than he claimed. However, the report shows that while Romney ran for Governor and President, he claimed that he could not be held accountable for bankruptcys and layoffs resulting from Bains investments after February 1999 since he departed for the Olympics. The commercials throughout its airing, calls President Obama a liar and that he could not show that he was with Bain when it declared bankruptcy and that he did not cause job loses because he was out sourcing jobs to other countries. Now what? Does this also explain why Romney is concealing his tax returns? According to the government documents filed by Romney and Bain, he was at the time, chief executive and chairman of the firm three yearss beyond the date he said he ceded control, even creating five new investment partnerships during that time.

(StatePoint) If youre watching your pocketbook these days, as many people are, you may be searching for affordable ways to celebrate birthdays and special occasions. But thoughtfulness doesnt need to cost a fortune. You can show the women in your life you really care by taking the time to personalize their gifts. Here are some unique ideas that meet a wide range of budgets: Food Youve likely been treated to many special home-cooked meals. Its time to reciprocate. Instead of picking up the phone and making a restaurant reservation, prepare a special meal yourself. Remember to plan the menu around all her favorite dishes. Offer to cook for her at her house so she doesnt need to lift a finger. Gifts Dont just opt for a trite box of chocolates or generic gift you find in the first store you visit. These days, you can find personalized gifts that truly match her unique personality. You can surprise and delight someone most with a personalized gift, since there is nothing more unique,Ž says Mariam Naficy, CEO of Minted.com, an online stationery store. Personalized stationery sets make great affordable gifts for mom. Remember, the stationery a woman uses speaks volumes about her. Find something just right by browsing the selection of colors and styles on an online stationery store. For example, Minted.com carries a wide selection of unique customizable designs. You might also consider giving the gift of self-expression with a personalized journal. Make the journal truly hers before she ever sets pen to paper by including meaningful photos and inscriptions on its cover and interior. Flowers For a traditional flair, think flowers. But rather than coughing up a pretty penny buying a standard issue store-bought arrangement, take that special someone on a nature walk to pick wildflowers. Not only will you get to spend a great spring day together outside, you can create a unique bouquet at home using flowers she picked herself. When showing the women in your life you care, dont let your budget hold you back. Just remember, thoughtfulness and thriftiness can go hand in hand.

Youre not alone„nearly half of all Americans are plagued with occasional insomnia, and about 15 percent have chronic sleepless nights. Try these tips to improve the quality of sleep, and the quality of your life. If youre not sleeping well at night you may be at risk for health problems ahead. New research published in The Lancet, the worlds leading medical journal, says that if you have problems sleeping, you are at risk for health problems like diabetes heart failure, anxiety and depression. You may not realize that if you have insomnia you are five times more likely to have anxiety and depression and at double the risk for congestive heart failure and diabetes. Simply put, if youre having sleep problems at night, those sleepless nights can result in numerous health problems. Difficulty sleeping can lead to daytime problems too, like mood disorders, irritability and a constant feeling of exhaustion. As people grow older, many experience age-related changes such as decreased quality of sleep. Some people find they have difficulty sleeping, as each day is crowded with anxiety and stress. Did you know sleep is crucial to brain health and memory? New research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has determined that sound quality sleep, can improve cognition (which includes decision decision-making skills, focus, concentration and memory). Did you know that poor quality sleep can also affect your immune system? During sleep, the body produces important proteins called cytokines. These proteins are essential to the effectiveness of the immune system in fighting off infection and other adverse effects on the body. Its also true that people who have chronic sleep problems have a weaker defense system against pathogens that cause illness like the common cold. What can you do to improve your sleep? Plenty. You can tip the scales on the side of better sleep with these easy, no-nonsense, better sleep ideas. Six Steps to Better Sleep Upgrade your mattress Your mattress may be triggering allergies that are playing havoc with your sleep. If your mattress is more than 7 years old, it may be time to replace it. Bed bugs hiding deep in mattresses are common sources of asthma and allergies. Cool down. Turn the thermostat down to the mid-60s when you go to bed. Studies have shown that a cool bedroom helps induce sleep. Wear socks. Now that your bedroom is cooler, put on a pair of socks. The American Journal of Physiology suggests wearing socks to bed to achieve better sleep. Your feet are often colder than the rest of the body so wearing socks helps blood vessels in your feet stay dilated resulting in better sleep. Regulate your eating routine Dont eat a big meal right before bedtime, and dont skip dinner so you go to bed hungry. Scratch the screen time. Calm the brain before going to bed. Avoid reading, writing and checking email on your electronic devices before bedtime, and dont watch TV right before you close your eyes. Exercise regularly. If you exercise regularly, at least four times a week, research has shown you may be able to add an hour or more to your usual nights sleep. When you take these steps to improve your sleep, youre moving in the right direction toward a healthier life. Dreaming of Uninterrupted Sleep? Announcements, meetings, happenings, and community events scheduled in Jacksonville and the surrounding area Small Changes Can Help You Save On Healthcare (StatePoint) If youre like many Americans, your healthcare is taking a major bite out of your paycheck. According to the Organization for Economic Development, the average American spends $7,960 on healthcare annually, representing nearly 20 percent of the average U.S. income of $40,000. Experts are advising consumers to take a proactive approach toward reducing their healthcare expenses. The best way to reduce healthcare costs is to prevent them,Ž says Dr. Andrew Myers, an expert in preventative health and nutrition, and author of Health is WealthŽ. Living a healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of chronic illnesses that are expensive to manage.Ž To help, Dr. Andrew Myers is offering some simple healthy living tips: € Get screened: Health and wellness screenings are crucial for early detection of health issues. Know what you are at risk for, so you know what you should be managing. € Get active: Be more active in your daily life, whether that is exercising, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or walking instead of driving. Strive to get the recommended 30 minutes of heart-healthy exercise three to five times weekly. € Eat healthier: Set simple goals like incorporating a fruit or vegetable into every meal, or replacing a junk food snack with something nutritious. € Chart your progress: Keep track of your progress and stay motivated by celebrating your successes. Mark your calendar on the day you start, as well as key dates and benchmarks along the way. When you reach a goal, make a new one, and be an inspiration to those around you! € Share the challenge: Invite friends or family members to undertake a health challenge with you. A buddy system keeps you accountable and increases your chance of success. You dont need an expensive doctors appointment to get important health screenings. Some retailers offer free health screenings. For example, Sams Club offers free health and wellness screenings the first Saturday of each month nationwide. Since 2010, the company has provided over one million preventative screenings to both members and non-members alike. The screenings include Body Mass Index (BMI) and blood pressure tests, diabetes screenings, and timely allergy tests in spring and childrens health screenings in advance of the school year. "My pharmacists recommended I go, and after the first screening, Ive never missed one,Ž says Douglas B., a Sams Club Member from Atlanta, Ga. recounting how much screenings have helped him. I have type 2 diabetes, and now instead of paying for my blood pressure and BMI tests, I go to Sams Club. They expect me now and know Ill be the first in line.Ž In addition to free monthly screenings, Sams Club pharmacists are great resources on smoking cessation, supplementation and wellness regimen practices -all free to members and the community. Douglas B. says he would be lost without these services. The pharmacists take the time to explain everything in terms I understand.Ž To learn more, visit www.samsclub.com/healthyliving.

JULY 14, 2012 THESTAR Jaguars Minicamp Is History As New Coach Mularkey Looks Forward To Training CampPAGEB-4 By Fred Witt Florida Sports Wire New Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey described last monthss mandatory three-day mini camp as a really great effort.Ž Mularkey took over for Jack Del Rio as the Jaguars try to improve on last years 5-11 record. Mularkey had been the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator since 2008. He was the head coach of the Buffalo Bills in 2004 and 2005. He started his first season as the Bills head coach 0-4 but the team finished 9-7. In Mularkey's second season the Bills finished 511. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew missed the three day sessions. The club and Jones-Drew are in the midst of a contract discussions. Jones-Drew led the NFL in rushing last season with 1,606 yards. He has two years remaining on a five-year contract worth $31 million. Kicker Josh Scobee, tabbed the clubs franchise player, was also missing. The absences didnt seem as big of a distraction as Mularkey, a former NFL tight end with Minnesota and Pittsburgh, instilled some of his own philosophy and style. From the first play of practice to the end we were trying to hit on situations. These guys responded great. Really the effort was unbelievable for everybody,Ž said Mularkey. Heading into training camp next month the Jaguars will be looking to clean up the infractions during days. He also cited too many turnovers as a concern. Its been great to have the officials out there, but there were too many mistakes that well have to overcome in games. If we do anything weve got to clean up our penalties,Ž said Mularkey. First round draft pick, receiver Justin Blackmon out of Oklahoma State drew a lot of attention during camp. Blackmon enjoyed a storied and productive career in college, winning the Biletnikoff Award (given to the country's top collegiate wide receiver) two years in a row. A recent DUI arrest and public apology has some taking a wait and see attitude about the receiver. He made a comment that he wanted to show people with his actions. I think he attempted to do that with the way he came out here to practice. Hes got to continue to do that. Obviously the quicker he does that its going to support what he said in front of America. He wants to correct this thing. Hes got a good start,Ž said Mularkey. When it comes to the Xs and Os, Mularkey said the basic offense is in place. There will be some adjustments here and there when they get the pads on. But for the most part its in. Mularkey, who played at the University of Florida, also said he liked where they are on defense. Theyre picking up right where they left off and they have an edge about them that shows up out here. Were not very complicated defensively, and you can tell theres not a lot of miscommunication out here. Theyre very in sync in everything they do,Ž he said. While the Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 mandatory mini camp is history, Mularkey and his staff are now looking at five weeks until training camp starts. Well theyve (players) got their time off. We will stay in contact with them,Ž said the coach. The coaches need that time off especially after a pretty grinding offseason and obviously a season that will be grinding as they always are. So they need that time to rest.Ž The Jaguars begin the NFL season Sept. 8 at Minnesota. SHARKS' DEFENSE DOMINANT IN 50-32 WIN OVER MUSTANGS The ArenaBowl XXIV Champion Jacksonville Sharks took one step closer to clinching the franchises third playoff berth in its threeyear history, with a 50-32 win over the Milwaukee Mustangs on Friday night in front of 9,811 on Sea Best Field inside Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Defense led the way for the Sharks (8-8) from the start, as they did not allow a Mustang touchdown in the first half. The secondary blanketed Milwaukees receivers in the first half forcing one turnover on downs and making the Mustangs attempt four first-half field goals. Quarterback Bernard Morris drove the Sharks offense to three first-half touchdowns. Morris connected with Jeron Harvey for a pair of touchdown strikes on the teams first two drives of the game before later rushing for another touchdown with 3:21 left in the first half. The Sharks only misstep of the first half came in the closing seconds when Milwaukee (511) recovered a Morris fumble on the Jacksonville 5-yard line with 8.5 seconds to play. However, the Shark defense stood strong with a Terrance Smith pass breakup followed by a blocked field goal by Jason Holman, sending the Sharks to the half with momentum and a 20-9 lead. To have a chance we have to win every game,Ž Holman said. That puts us in a position to where we have to make plays so we can continue our season. So we came out fired up and hopefully we do it the rest of the season.Ž Milwaukee came out of the locker room and scored their first touchdown of the game on the opening possession of the third quarter. Quarterback Gino Guidugli connected with wideout Taurian Washington who did the rest, breaking multiple tackles en route to a long run after the catch for a touchdown. However, the Sharks defense returned to form later in the third quarter, stopping the Mustangs twice inside their own 5-yard line. Jack linebacker Charlie Hunt was the cause of the first stop when he intercepted Guidugli on fourth down, returning it to the Sharks 10-yard line. On the next drive, the Sharks stopped the Mustangs on three consecutive plays from the one, forcing a turnover on downs. Morris capitalized on the play of the defense, building the lead to as many as 24 points in the second half. He led the Sharks to scores after both stops, first with a 37-yard bomb to Jacksonville University product Josh Philpart before connecting with Harvey for a 17-yard, spectacular, over-the-wall touchdown catch. The Mustangs scored two late, fourth-quarter touchdowns but it was not enough to overcome Jacksonville as the Sharks improved to 8-8 on the season, 5-4 at the friendly confines of Sea Best Field and 2-0 all-time against the Mustangs. Morris commanded the Shark offense, having a hand in each of the teams seven touchdowns, throwing for six and running for one. He was consistent throughout the night, something that is a common theme in his five wins as a starter this season. He completed 15 of 19 passes for 192 yards and just the one turnover. Harvey led the way for the receivers with six catches for 86 yards and three scores. However, it was Philpart who had the breakout performance, making his first three catches of the season, all of which went for touchdowns. It feels good,Ž Philpart said. Coach Moss believed in me. He dressed me out after I didnt dress last week. It feels really good. I had a couple of my ex-players out here. My wide receivers coach from high school and college was out here, it feels really good.Ž Defensively, the Sharks were dominant. The secondary had five pass breakups to go along with Hunts interception. Defensive back LaRoche Jackson led the Sharks with 10 tackles. Defensive lineman Scooter Berry grabbed another sack, his team-high tenth of the season. The Edward Waters College Athletic Department will held a signing on July 11 at 11 a.m. inside Milne Auditorium to announce the full reinstatement of the Mens Golf Program as well as the signing of its fiveplayer team. The five players who signed letters of intent are Kevin J. Parker from Winter Park High School (Orlando), Mitra Lutchman Ocoee High School (Ocoee), Joshua Bowman from Maynard Evans High School (Orlando); and two players from Lake Brantley High School (Orlando): Alvin Vicioso and Jean Fouquet. Each player was a member of the Orlando Minority Youth Golf Association, directed by Dr. Thomas J. Dorsey. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew's 1,606 rushing yards led the NFL in 2011 and accounted for 47.7 percent of Jacksonville's offense last season.

Sleep ApniaBy Daris HowardMy wife, Donna, told me I really wasnt sleeping well. Sometimes people like to point out the obvious. However, we had just read an article that told us married men live much longer than single men and most of it seemed to indicate that the reason was because their wives look out for their health. I knew I wasnt sleeping well, but what was a person to do about it? Donna said I stopped breathing a lot and needed to see a doctor. Thus I found myself in the office of a Ear, Nose, Throat, and Mustang Car specialist. He was a good, thorough doctor and he found much of my airway was blocked by my tonsils. Tonsils are those things that a person normally has removed when they are an innocent child. But I didnt, and now they had grown to roughly the size of basketballs. Nonetheless, before they could be extracted, the insurance company wanted a sleep studyŽ. Therefore, I soon found myself in a room in which I was supposed to spend the night. A woman hooked more wires to me than can be found under the hood of a car, looking for a similar diagnosis as a mechanic would, Im sure. I had wires on my chest, head, legs, arms, and everywhere else that a bare spot could be found or shaved. After a quick review of what they were looking for, I was left alone with her saying, Have a good sleep.Ž Was that supposed to be a joke?Ž I called after her as she shut the door. And indeed I found that a sleep study is totally misnamed, at least the sleep part. Every movement during the night made me feel like I was wrapped in a ball of twine. Finally the night ended with me wide awake at about five A.M. When the sleep enforcer finally entered my room, she said, You seemed kind of restless all night.Ž Me?Ž I growled. How could that be? Im used to being tied to my bed when I sleep.Ž Well, the study finally came back and the surprising result was: YOU DONT SLEEP TOO WELL!Ž I thought that was an amazing analysis for nearly $1000. It is the job of the insurance company to spend a persons money on frivolous things, therefore they wanted to see if more air would help me. Apparently it is not obvious to them that a lack of air is detrimental to the continued state most people prefer mainly, living. Though the doctor reported that my tonsils inhibitedŽ my airway, the insurance company insisted I get a breathing machine. Every night I had to be tethered to it. Basically, every time I breathed in, it inflated me like a balloon. It was better when we got the control corrected from 150 psi to around 5, a normal breathing setting, but I still sounded like Darth Vadar on steroids, locked in a closet. They said they wanted to find out if the oxygen level in my blood was better when I slept. I dont know how they were supposed to determine that since I could never sleep. By the end of the month I was tired, grouchy, and ready to turn to the dark side. At the end of the study, after hundreds more dollars were spent, they came to another important conclusion: YOU NEED TO HAVE YOUR TONSILS OUT.Ž I thought I had finally come to the end of this great adventure, but indeed, I had only come to the beginning.

(StatePoint) Nobody likes working in front of a hot oven during the summer. But if you and your family love desserts, youll still want to partake of sumptuous treats that will keep you all cool. According to top dessert experts, theres a whole world of alternatives to baking for those who suffer from a year-round sweet tooth. On hot days, my mind usually turns to frozen treats such as popsicles or sorbet; for something a bit more elegant Ill whip up a chocolate ganache tart with cookie crust,Ž says Lindsay Landis, author of the new book, The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook.Ž Landis has created over fifty recipes using eggfree cookie dough that is safe to eat raw. By repurposing your favorite desserts for the summer season, you can take the need for heat out of the equation. For example, if you love pie, consider a graham cracker, whipped cream and candied fruit based dessert that can be created in minutes and served cold. And dont forget that one of the best things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruit. No matter what you come up with, adding a garnish of exotic fresh fruits like kiwi, pineapple and mango will wow your guests with a boost of natural sweetness. Or create a parfait of frozen yogurt, fresh strawberries and a variety of nuts. For a bit of inspiration, try out this perfect nobake summer treat from Landis: Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops Makes: 4 pops Active time: 5 minutes Total time: 3 hours Ingredients: 1 1/4 cups milk (skim, 2 percent, or whole) 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed Pinch salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons mini semisweet chocolate chips Directions: In a microwave-safe container or glass measuring cup, microwave milk 30 seconds or until warm to the touch. Add brown sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add vanilla. Place 1/2 tablespoon chocolate chips in the bottom of each of four 1/3-cup icepop molds or small paper cups. Top each with milk mixture. Insert sticks and place molds in freezer. Freeze until solid, at least 3 hours. To release pops, run molds under warm water 20 to 30 seconds; they should slide right out. If using paper cups, simply peel cups away and discard. If your ice-pop mold does not include built-in sticks or a lid to hold them in place, you may find yourself with sticks pointing every which way but up. To prevent this, stretch a layer of plastic wrap over the top of the mold and secure it with a rubber band. Cut a small slit in the plastic, centered over each pop, and insert a stick through each opening. Alternatively, you can adjust sticks as necessary after about 45 minutes of freezing, when the pops arent yet frozen solid.

Get a handle on barking, begging, jumping, scratching, digging and marking with a good attitude and the right tools. Keep Pets Happy An ac tive pet is a calmer pet. Give furry friends plenty of exercise, so they dont use the kitchen as a dog run. Walks are a great start. Play games like fetch to give cats and dogs mental stimulation and release pent up anxiety. If theyve had their fun, theyll be far less likely to act out. The same way babies cry to express themselves; a pets behavior may simply be a message. While pain and discomfort can cause naughtiness such as inappropriate marking „ and a vet visit can confirm if thats the case „ much bad behavior is stressrelated. When you arent home, ensure pets needs are met. Provide access to water, toys, a window to watch the world from, and a clean litter box. Let dogs out immediately when you get home. Speak Your Pets Language Behavior training can change certain behaviors, but its not effective for everything and takes a great deal of time, money, and patience. On the other extreme, veterinarians may recommend sedatives as a last resort when other solutions have fail ed. New alternatives, however, can reduce or eliminate problems safely and quickly. In scientific studies, pheromones mimicking those produced by mother cats and dogs have been shown to modify both stressinduced behaviors and physiology,Ž says Dr. John McGlone, a professor and animal behavior research scientist. Pheromones are naturally produced chemicals animals use to communicate with each other. Pheromone therapy is helping pets overcome difficult behavior problems.Ž Consider outfitting active pets with a pheromone collar, such as one from Sentry. They last 30 days and go where pets go, so they are in constant contact with calming pheromones. Sentrys Stop That Spray may be useful for eliminating certain behaviors. For example, if pets bark excessively at the doorbell, applying spray will get the pets attention and send the message to stop barking, so you can greet guests trouble-free. When a pet expresses fear or stress from thunderstorms or loud noises, use a calming spray or diffuser in an enclosed space to prevent him from wreaking havoc throughout the house. More information can be found at www.sentrypetcare.com. Go to School Not everyone has the benefit of personal visits from Dog Whisperer,Ž Cesar Milan. Obedience training however can benefit you both, while socializing your dog. Get training underway as young as possible to break bad habits before they get out of hand. Consider using pheromonebased products in conjunction for faster, more lasting results. Parents of problem pets: dont give up. Make bad behavior a thing of the past with a few key changes and the application of science.JULY 14, 2012 THE STAR PR 2 Great Bake-Free Desserts Ideas For Summer

JULY 14, 2012 THE STAR PR 4 (StatePoint) Preparing children for a new school year is no longer just about stocking up on pencils and notebooks. The face of education is changing, and a well-equipped student should know how to use new technology to personalize the learning experience and succeed in school. Digital resources and applications can stimulate and engage students by providing a more interactive learning experience,Ž says Dan Caton, president of McGraw-Hill School Education. Some of the best digital learning tools personalize learning, adapt to childrens individual strengths and help them overcome unique challenges.Ž While digital learning may come naturally to children, parents should get up to speed on technology as well to better understand how new tools and resources can help their children learn. Here are some great back-to-school tech-tips for parents: € Talk to your children and their teachers about what they want to accomplish this year and how they can use traditional and new learning tools to meet goals. € Encourage children to use computers and other web-enabled devices for more than just games and Facebook. € If you think books are the same as when you went to school, think again. New digital textbooks available for download through applications like iBooks2, allow you to highlight text, make notes, or search inside the book. You can even have your tablet device read the book to you. Learn how this technology works so you can keep up with your kids. € Some forward-thinking schools are using innovative programs like CINCH Learning, which makes the complete K12 math and 7-12 grade science curricula accessible online. Programs like these go beyond the textbook, so talk to your childrens teachers to learn how to maximize the programs interactive tools and games from home devices. € Nearly half of all high school students who take Advanced Placement (AP) exams fail. But new subscription based programs like the ONboard series from McGrawHill Education are providing students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in these advanced courses. Parents of high school students should encourage teens to take advantage of such study aids before senior year. € Pick a regular time each day dedicated to beefing up vocabulary, improving spelling, reading together and just talking about new topics and ideas. The International Reading Association (IRA) recommends giving children choices in what they read „ browse the ever-growing selection of age-appropriate books and periodicals available for download to your e-reader. € If youre on a budget, dont stress. Not all technology will break the bank. In fact, with a bit of effort, you can find e-readers on sites like eBay for much less than retail cost. And as more devices come onto the market, prices will become even more affordable. Many public libraries offer access to computers so you can familiarize children with basic technology and a range of digital resources, such as free ebooks.

The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. Telemarketing Fraud More and more are people being fooled and losing their money and identities through scams as they are becoming more believable. It can be hard to resist. A phone call from a charity seeking desperately needed funds for flood victims, endangered species, or the homeless. A postcard claiming you've won an amazing sweepstakes prize if you'll just call and send an "administrative fee." Or an investment offer giving you an "exclusive" chance to earn potentially enormous profits. But Resist You Must These are just a few examples of the kinds of fraudulent schemes Americans run across every day. Experts estimate that consumers lose more than $100 billion annually to a broad assortment of frauds, cons, and scams. Fraudulent telemarketing and direct mail appeals account for $40 billion of this total. Alarmingly, the Elderly Are a Major Target for con artists, especially phony fundraisers and hucksters hawking bogus investment and insurance schemes. Whether they are widowed and lonely, eager to help others, or merely intrigued by a "once in a lifetime" opportunity, increasing numbers of older Americans are falling for sophisticated and slick appeals that can wind up costing them thousands of dollars, not to mention untold anguish and stress. Taking Your Money is the Number-One Goal of the nation's scamming scoundrels. Many concoct their cons just to get a credit card number so they can go on a spending spree financed by Y-O-U. Others will bill you incredible sums for merely calling them to find out more. And still more want a check or cash as soon as possible--by overnight delivery, by wire or even courier--so they have their money before you have them figured out. What Consumer-Soaking Schemes Are All the Rage These Days? Among the major scams of the 1990s are postcard sweepstakes offer. In a recent poll, 30 percent of Americans said they had responded to such mailings, sometimes sending hundreds of dollars to "register" for a seemingly fabulous prize or trip. False Charities Are Another Popular Consumer Con. Telephone troublemakers claiming to represent everyone from police officers to the disabled take advantage of Americans' generosity to the tune of billions of dollars each year. Adding to the problem is an array of fraudulent appeals--in newspaper ads, on TV and by mail-about business and investment opportunities, vacation homes, and even "miracle cures" for everything from baldness to cancer. In the face of this onslaught of fraud, the best course for consumers is to beware. Here are some pointers so you won't be conned by the pros: € If a caller asks for your credit card, bank account or Social Security number to verify a free vacation, a prize, or a gift, say "No" and hang up. € If you're calling a 900 number in response to an advertisement or something you received in the mail, make sure you know all the charges up front. € Before you agree to support a charity that calls seeking money, ask for written information about its finances and programs. If you feel you've been conned, call the police or the Better Business Bureau. Remember: consumer fraud is a crime. And last but not least, remember that an offer that sounds too good to be true, probably is. Your Safety Four Arrested in Failed Robbery AttemptFour men are in custody following an attempted armed robbery at a Fort Walton Beach convenience store. Deputies responded to an armed robbery at a Tom Thumb Food Store at approximately 12:40 a.m. The clerk stated two masked men entered the store, brandished handguns, and attempted to rob the store.

Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Woman Attacks Cheating Husband with Ice Cream A woman was arrested after attacking her husband with ice cream after finding out that he was cheating on her. Police say Dawn Elaine Barran, 45, saw her husband with his current girlfriend at a Walgreens, where she happened to be as well. She confronted him and started arguing with him at the cash register about having a girlfriend.

Barran would not stop hitting him even as he attempted to leave the scene. Barran was located at her residence and was arrested for battery/simple/domestic. She was taken to jail without incident. Man Wanted to Go to Jail A man was sent to jail; not for any crimes he committed, but because he wanted to. An officer approached 20-year-old Shakeem J. Fleming who was standing outside of the police department. The officer asked him what he was doing there and he replied by telling him that he wantedŽ to go to jail. Fleming even put his hands behind his back for the officer. Fleming sat on the side of a patrol car and notified the officer that he didnt have an ID. The officer asked him if he had a warrant, which he didnt have. Another officer came out and Fleming asked if they were going to arrest him or not. He then jumped up on top of the hood of the patrol car and jumped up and down, and caused about $800 worth of damage. The officers got Fleming off of the hood and handcuffed him. When they searched him, they found his ID, birth certificate, and social security card. They discovered that Fleming was dropped off at a DMV by his mother. Fleming was arrested for property damage. Woman Kills Son Before Suicide Attempt NYAt around 11 p.m., 40-year-old Tenika Revell called 911 and reported that she killed her 7-year-old son before taking pills. Police arrived to the scene, where the child was pronounced dead. According to reports, Revell had repeatedly hit the childs head until he died. Neighbors said that Revell had terminal cancer and her boyfriend said he believed she killed her son because she was going to die and she did not want anybody else raising her son. He said, She loved him so much she didnt want anybody else to have him.Ž Witnesses also said her illness caused her to have extreme moodswings and that she had an unpredictable temper. According to the documents, there were lacerations on the childs head, hemorrhages on the eyes, face, and neck and ligature marks around his neck. The death was ruled a homicide and Revell was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, and endangering the welfare of a child.

He does not hold back as the commercial continues with Mrs. Clinton speaking in 2008 while running against President Obama, says, Shame on you Barack Obama. During a press conference Thursday morning, the day after Romney appeared before the NAACP, a report was released by the Boston Globe that shows Mitt Romney remained chief executive and chairman of Bain Capital for three years longer than he claimed. However, the report shows that while Romney ran for Governor and President, he claimed that he could not be held accountable for bankruptcys and layoffs resulting from Bains investments after February 1999 since he departed for the Olympics. The commercials throughout its airing, calls President Obama a liar and that he could not show that he was with Bain when it declared bankruptcy and that he did not cause job loses because he was out sourcing jobs to other countries. Now what? Does this also explain why Romney is concealing his tax returns? According to the government documents filed by Romney and Bain, he was at the time, chief executive and chairman of the firm three yearss beyond the date he said he ceded control, even creating five new investment partnerships during that time.

He does not hold back as the commercial continues with Mrs. Clinton speaking in 2008 while running against President Obama, says, Shame on you Barack Obama. During a press conference Thursday morning, the day after Romney appeared before the NAACP, a report was released by the Boston Globe that shows Mitt Romney remained chief executive and chairman of Bain Capital for three years longer than he claimed. However, the report shows that while Romney ran for Governor and President, he claimed that he could not be held accountable for bankruptcys and layoffs resulting from Bains investments after February 1999 since he departed for the Olympics at that time. The commercials throughout its airing, calls President Obama a liar saying that he cannot show that he was with Bain when it declared bankruptcy and that he did not cause job loses because he was out sourcing jobs to other countries. Now what? Does this explain why Romney is concealing his tax returns? According to the government documents filed by Romney and Bain, he was at the time, chief executive and chairman of the firm three years beyond the date he said he ceded control, even creating five new investment partnerships during that time.

NeighborhoodLIFT is a $1.75 billion dollar program to be spent in the next five years in Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando and Miami. To help you become a homeowner in Jacksonville there is a five-year $750 million dollar mortgage purchase loan program by Wells Fargo, and a $7 million dollar investment, to be used in 2012, for down payment assistance grants and homebuyer support programs. July 27 & 28 a homebuyer workshop will be held at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. Prospective homebuyers can register and learn more about the NeighborhoodLIFT program at www.neighborhoodlift.org of call 866-858-2151. Per-registration is encouraged for assigned appointments, however everyone is welcomed and everybody will be seen. Admission is free. At this event you can qualify for up to $15,000 in down payment assistance. Reserve your funds for 60 days to find a property if you have not located one. According to the plan, this assistance is for the purchase of a primary, owner-occupied resident. The amount you qualify for will be forgiven after you have lived in the home for five years and you will not owe anything more toward the repayment of the down payment. You will be able to talk with representatives from NeighborWorks America, Wealth Watchers, the City of Jacksonville, and Neighborhood LIFT to answer your questions and determine your eligibility. Wells Fargo Bank will pay at least $175 million to settle accusations that it discriminated against African-American and Hispanic borrowers in violation of fair-lending laws, the Justice Department announced Thursday. This may not have happened in Jacksonville but they are opening their doors to this growing city.

Therefore, the Customs and Border Protection officers decided to check out the bags after doing their routine inspection of maritime cargo containers. The officers examined the contents of the container and found 100 bricks of cocaine, according to their report released by the Public Affairs Liaison. The cocaine was packaged inside the bags. A K-9 with CBP was then brought in to check the duffel bags and alerted the officers that narcotics were there. At that point, the officers began to test the bricks to verify that it was, in fact, cocaine. The report came back positive.

The tour was held to honor Johnsons birth on June 17, 1781 in Jacksonville (town of LaVilla), Florida. The James Weldon Johnson Heritage Tour was developed by Sharon Coon in memory of her son, the late James Lee Coon, Jr. Lisa S.

Two departures left from Ritz Theatre and Museum; each tour lasted 1 hours. Joel McEachin City Planner/Manager was the primary tour guide. He was ably assisted by his colleague, Lisa Ransom. The tour included Johnsons birth site at the corner of Lee and Houston Streets. The wooden frame house where he and brother, J.

(StatePoint) If youre watching your pocketbook these days, as many people are, you may be searching for affordable ways to celebrate birthdays and special occasions. But thoughtfulness doesnt need to cost a fortune. You can show the women in your life you really care by taking the time to personalize their gifts. Here are some unique ideas that meet a wide range of budgets: Food Youve likely been treated to many special home-cooked meals. Its time to reciprocate. Instead of picking up the phone and making a restaurant reservation, prepare a special meal yourself. Remember to plan the menu around all her favorite dishes. Offer to cook for her at her house so she doesnt need to lift a finger. Gifts Dont just opt for a trite box of chocolates or generic gift you find in the first store you visit. These days, you can find personalized gifts that truly match her unique personality. You can surprise and delight someone most with a personalized gift, since there is nothing more unique, says Mariam Naficy, CEO of Minted.com, an online stationery store. Personalized stationery sets make great affordable gifts for mom. Remember, the stationery a woman uses speaks volumes about her. Find something just right by browsing the selection of colors and styles on an online stationery store. For example, Minted.com carries a wide selection of unique customizable designs. You might also consider giving the gift of self-expression with a personalized journal. Make the journal truly hers before she ever sets pen to paper by including meaningful photos and inscriptions on its cover and interior. Flowers For a traditional flair, think flowers. But rather than coughing up a pretty penny buying a standard issue store-bought arrangement, take that special someone on a nature walk to pick wildflowers. Not only will you get to spend a great spring day together outside, you can create a unique bouquet at home using flowers she picked herself. When showing the women in your life you care, dont let your budget hold you back. Just remember, thoughtfulness and thriftiness can go hand in hand.

Youre not alonenearly half of all Americans are plagued with occasional insomnia, and about 15 percent have chronic sleepless nights. Try these tips to improve the quality of sleep, and the quality of your life. If youre not sleeping well at night you may be at risk for health problems ahead. New research published in The Lancet, the worlds leading medical journal, says that if you have problems sleeping, you are at risk for health problems like diabetes heart failure, anxiety and depression. You may not realize that if you have insomnia you are five times more likely to have anxiety and depression and at double the risk for congestive heart failure and diabetes. Simply put, if youre having sleep problems at night, those sleepless nights can result in numerous health problems. Difficulty sleeping can lead to daytime problems too, like mood disorders, irritability and a constant feeling of exhaustion. As people grow older, many experience age-related changes such as decreased quality of sleep. Some people find they have difficulty sleeping, as each day is crowded with anxiety and stress. Did you know sleep is crucial to brain health and memory? New research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has determined that sound quality sleep, can improve cognition (which includes decision decision-making skills, focus, concentration and memory). Did you know that poor quality sleep can also affect your immune system? During sleep, the body produces important proteins called cytokines. These proteins are essential to the effectiveness of the immune system in fighting off infection and other adverse effects on the body. Its also true that people who have chronic sleep problems have a weaker defense system against pathogens that cause illness like the common cold. What can you do to improve your sleep? Plenty. You can tip the scales on the side of better sleep with these easy, no-nonsense, better sleep ideas. Six Steps to Better Sleep Upgrade your mattress. Your mattress may be triggering allergies that are playing havoc with your sleep. If your mattress is more than 7 years old, it may be time to replace it. Bed bugs hiding deep in mattresses are common sources of asthma and allergies. Cool down. Turn the thermostat down to the mid-60s when you go to bed. Studies have shown that a cool bedroom helps induce sleep. Wear socks. Now that your bedroom is cooler, put on a pair of socks. The American Journal of Physiology suggests wearing socks to bed to achieve better sleep. Your feet are often colder than the rest of the body so wearing socks helps blood vessels in your feet stay dilated resulting in better sleep. Regulate your eating routine. Dont eat a big meal right before bedtime, and dont skip dinner so you go to bed hungry. Scratch the screen time. Calm the brain before going to bed. Avoid reading, writing and checking email on your electronic devices before bedtime, and dont watch TV right before you close your eyes. Exercise regularly. If you exercise regularly, at least four times a week, research has shown you may be able to add an hour or more to your usual nights sleep. When you take these steps to improve your sleep, youre moving in the right direction toward a healthier life. Dreaming of Uninterrupted Sleep? Announcements, meetings, happenings, and community events scheduled in Jacksonville and the surrounding area Small Changes Can Help You Save On Healthcare (StatePoint) If youre like many Americans, your healthcare is taking a major bite out of your paycheck. According to the Organization for Economic Development, the average American spends $7,960 on healthcare annually, representing nearly 20 percent of the average U.S. income of $40,000. Experts are advising consumers to take a proactive approach toward reducing their healthcare expenses. The best way to reduce healthcare costs is to prevent them, says Dr. Andrew Myers, an expert in preventative health and nutrition, and author of Health is Wealth. Living a healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of chronic illnesses that are expensive to manage. To help, Dr. Andrew Myers is offering some simple healthy living tips: Get screened: Health and wellness screenings are crucial for early detection of health issues. Know what you are at risk for, so you know what you should be managing. Get active: Be more active in your daily life, whether that is exercising, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or walking instead of driving. Strive to get the recommended 30 minutes of heart-healthy exercise three to five times weekly. Eat healthier: Set simple goals like incorporating a fruit or vegetable into every meal, or replacing a junk food snack with something nutritious. Chart your progress: Keep track of your progress and stay motivated by celebrating your successes. Mark your calendar on the day you start, as well as key dates and benchmarks along the way. When you reach a goal, make a new one, and be an inspiration to those around you! Share the challenge: Invite friends or family members to undertake a health challenge with you. A buddy system keeps you accountable and increases your chance of success. You dont need an expensive doctors appointment to get important health screenings. Some retailers offer free health screenings. For example, Sams Club offers free health and wellness screenings the first Saturday of each month nationwide. Since 2010, the company has provided over one million preventative screenings to both members and non-members alike. The screenings include Body Mass Index (BMI) and blood pressure tests, diabetes screenings, and timely allergy tests in spring and childrens health screenings in advance of the school year. "My pharmacists recommended I go, and after the first screening, Ive never missed one, says Douglas B., a Sams Club Member from Atlanta, Ga. recounting how much screenings have helped him. I have type 2 diabetes, and now instead of paying for my blood pressure and BMI tests, I go to Sams Club. They expect me now and know Ill be the first in line. In addition to free monthly screenings, Sams Club pharmacists are great resources on smoking cessation, supplementation and wellness regimen practices -all free to members and the community. Douglas B. says he would be lost without these services. The pharmacists take the time to explain everything in terms I understand. To learn more, visit www.samsclub.com/healthyliving.

JULY 14, 2012 THESTAR Jaguars Minicamp Is History As New Coach Mularkey Looks Forward To Training CampPAGEB-4 By Fred Witt Florida Sports Wire New Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey described last monthss mandatory three-day mini camp as a really great effort. Mularkey took over for Jack Del Rio as the Jaguars try to improve on last years 5-11 record. Mularkey had been the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator since 2008. He was the head coach of the Buffalo Bills in 2004 and 2005. He started his first season as the Bills head coach 0-4 but the team finished 9-7. In Mularkey's second season the Bills finished 511. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew missed the three day sessions. The club and Jones-Drew are in the midst of a contract discussions. Jones-Drew led the NFL in rushing last season with 1,606 yards. He has two years remaining on a five-year contract worth $31 million. Kicker Josh Scobee, tabbed the clubs franchise player, was also missing. The absences didnt seem as big of a distraction as Mularkey, a former NFL tight end with Minnesota and Pittsburgh, instilled some of his own philosophy and style. From the first play of practice to the end we were trying to hit on situations. These guys responded great. Really the effort was unbelievable for everybody, said Mularkey. Heading into training camp next month the Jaguars will be looking to clean up the infractions during days. He also cited too many turnovers as a concern. Its been great to have the officials out there, but there were too many mistakes that well have to overcome in games. If we do anything weve got to clean up our penalties, said Mularkey. First round draft pick, receiver Justin Blackmon out of Oklahoma State drew a lot of attention during camp. Blackmon enjoyed a storied and productive career in college, winning the Biletnikoff Award (given to the country's top collegiate wide receiver) two years in a row. A recent DUI arrest and public apology has some taking a wait and see attitude about the receiver. He made a comment that he wanted to show people with his actions. I think he attempted to do that with the way he came out here to practice. Hes got to continue to do that. Obviously the quicker he does that its going to support what he said in front of America. He wants to correct this thing. Hes got a good start, said Mularkey. When it comes to the Xs and Os, Mularkey said the basic offense is in place. There will be some adjustments here and there when they get the pads on. But for the most part its in. Mularkey, who played at the University of Florida, also said he liked where they are on defense. Theyre picking up right where they left off and they have an edge about them that shows up out here. Were not very complicated defensively, and you can tell theres not a lot of miscommunication out here. Theyre very in sync in everything they do, he said. While the Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 mandatory mini camp is history, Mularkey and his staff are now looking at five weeks until training camp starts. Well theyve (players) got their time off. We will stay in contact with them, said the coach. The coaches need that time off especially after a pretty grinding offseason and obviously a season that will be grinding as they always are. So they need that time to rest. The Jaguars begin the NFL season Sept. 8 at Minnesota. SHARKS' DEFENSE DOMINANT IN 50-32 WIN OVER MUSTANGS The ArenaBowl XXIV Champion Jacksonville Sharks took one step closer to clinching the franchises third playoff berth in its threeyear history, with a 50-32 win over the Milwaukee Mustangs on Friday night in front of 9,811 on Sea Best Field inside Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Defense led the way for the Sharks (8-8) from the start, as they did not allow a Mustang touchdown in the first half. The secondary blanketed Milwaukees receivers in the first half forcing one turnover on downs and making the Mustangs attempt four first-half field goals. Quarterback Bernard Morris drove the Sharks offense to three first-half touchdowns. Morris connected with Jeron Harvey for a pair of touchdown strikes on the teams first two drives of the game before later rushing for another touchdown with 3:21 left in the first half. The Sharks only misstep of the first half came in the closing seconds when Milwaukee (511) recovered a Morris fumble on the Jacksonville 5-yard line with 8.5 seconds to play. However, the Shark defense stood strong with a Terrance Smith pass breakup followed by a blocked field goal by Jason Holman, sending the Sharks to the half with momentum and a 20-9 lead. To have a chance we have to win every game, Holman said. That puts us in a position to where we have to make plays so we can continue our season. So we came out fired up and hopefully we do it the rest of the season. Milwaukee came out of the locker room and scored their first touchdown of the game on the opening possession of the third quarter. Quarterback Gino Guidugli connected with wideout Taurian Washington who did the rest, breaking multiple tackles en route to a long run after the catch for a touchdown. However, the Sharks defense returned to form later in the third quarter, stopping the Mustangs twice inside their own 5-yard line. Jack linebacker Charlie Hunt was the cause of the first stop when he intercepted Guidugli on fourth down, returning it to the Sharks 10-yard line. On the next drive, the Sharks stopped the Mustangs on three consecutive plays from the one, forcing a turnover on downs. Morris capitalized on the play of the defense, building the lead to as many as 24 points in the second half. He led the Sharks to scores after both stops, first with a 37-yard bomb to Jacksonville University product Josh Philpart before connecting with Harvey for a 17-yard, spectacular, over-the-wall touchdown catch. The Mustangs scored two late, fourth-quarter touchdowns but it was not enough to overcome Jacksonville as the Sharks improved to 8-8 on the season, 5-4 at the friendly confines of Sea Best Field and 2-0 all-time against the Mustangs. Morris commanded the Shark offense, having a hand in each of the teams seven touchdowns, throwing for six and running for one. He was consistent throughout the night, something that is a common theme in his five wins as a starter this season. He completed 15 of 19 passes for 192 yards and just the one turnover. Harvey led the way for the receivers with six catches for 86 yards and three scores. However, it was Philpart who had the breakout performance, making his first three catches of the season, all of which went for touchdowns. It feels good, Philpart said. Coach Moss believed in me. He dressed me out after I didnt dress last week. It feels really good. I had a couple of my ex-players out here. My wide receivers coach from high school and college was out here, it feels really good. Defensively, the Sharks were dominant. The secondary had five pass breakups to go along with Hunts interception. Defensive back LaRoche Jackson led the Sharks with 10 tackles. Defensive lineman Scooter Berry grabbed another sack, his team-high tenth of the season. The Edward Waters College Athletic Department will held a signing on July 11 at 11 a.m. inside Milne Auditorium to announce the full reinstatement of the Mens Golf Program as well as the signing of its fiveplayer team. The five players who signed letters of intent are Kevin J. Parker from Winter Park High School (Orlando), Mitra Lutchman Ocoee High School (Ocoee), Joshua Bowman from Maynard Evans High School (Orlando); and two players from Lake Brantley High School (Orlando): Alvin Vicioso and Jean Fouquet. Each player was a member of the Orlando Minority Youth Golf Association, directed by Dr. Thomas J. Dorsey. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew's 1,606 rushing yards led the NFL in 2011 and accounted for 47.7 percent of Jacksonville's offense last season.

Sleep ApniaBy Daris HowardMy wife, Donna, told me I really wasnt sleeping well. Sometimes people like to point out the obvious. However, we had just read an article that told us married men live much longer than single men and most of it seemed to indicate that the reason was because their wives look out for their health. I knew I wasnt sleeping well, but what was a person to do about it? Donna said I stopped breathing a lot and needed to see a doctor. Thus I found myself in the office of a Ear, Nose, Throat, and Mustang Car specialist. He was a good, thorough doctor and he found much of my airway was blocked by my tonsils. Tonsils are those things that a person normally has removed when they are an innocent child. But I didnt, and now they had grown to roughly the size of basketballs. Nonetheless, before they could be extracted, the insurance company wanted a sleep study. Therefore, I soon found myself in a room in which I was supposed to spend the night. A woman hooked more wires to me than can be found under the hood of a car, looking for a similar diagnosis as a mechanic would, Im sure. I had wires on my chest, head, legs, arms, and everywhere else that a bare spot could be found or shaved. After a quick review of what they were looking for, I was left alone with her saying, Have a good sleep. Was that supposed to be a joke? I called after her as she shut the door. And indeed I found that a sleep study is totally misnamed, at least the sleep part. Every movement during the night made me feel like I was wrapped in a ball of twine. Finally the night ended with me wide awake at about five A.M. When the sleep enforcer finally entered my room, she said, You seemed kind of restless all night. Me? I growled. How could that be? Im used to being tied to my bed when I sleep. Well, the study finally came back and the surprising result was: YOU DONT SLEEP TOO WELL! I thought that was an amazing analysis for nearly $1000. It is the job of the insurance company to spend a persons money on frivolous things, therefore they wanted to see if more air would help me. Apparently it is not obvious to them that a lack of air is detrimental to the continued state most people prefer mainly, living. Though the doctor reported that my tonsils inhibited my airway, the insurance company insisted I get a breathing machine. Every night I had to be tethered to it. Basically, every time I breathed in, it inflated me like a balloon. It was better when we got the control corrected from 150 psi to around 5, a normal breathing setting, but I still sounded like Darth Vadar on steroids, locked in a closet. They said they wanted to find out if the oxygen level in my blood was better when I slept. I dont know how they were supposed to determine that since I could never sleep. By the end of the month I was tired, grouchy, and ready to turn to the dark side. At the end of the study, after hundreds more dollars were spent, they came to another important conclusion: YOU NEED TO HAVE YOUR TONSILS OUT. I thought I had finally come to the end of this great adventure, but indeed, I had only come to the beginning.

(StatePoint) Nobody likes working in front of a hot oven during the summer. But if you and your family love desserts, youll still want to partake of sumptuous treats that will keep you all cool. According to top dessert experts, theres a whole world of alternatives to baking for those who suffer from a year-round sweet tooth. On hot days, my mind usually turns to frozen treats such as popsicles or sorbet; for something a bit more elegant Ill whip up a chocolate ganache tart with cookie crust, says Lindsay Landis, author of the new book, The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook. Landis has created over fifty recipes using eggfree cookie dough that is safe to eat raw. By repurposing your favorite desserts for the summer season, you can take the need for heat out of the equation. For example, if you love pie, consider a graham cracker, whipped cream and candied fruit based dessert that can be created in minutes and served cold. And dont forget that one of the best things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruit. No matter what you come up with, adding a garnish of exotic fresh fruits like kiwi, pineapple and mango will wow your guests with a boost of natural sweetness. Or create a parfait of frozen yogurt, fresh strawberries and a variety of nuts. For a bit of inspiration, try out this perfect nobake summer treat from Landis: Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops Makes: 4 pops Active time: 5 minutes Total time: 3 hours Ingredients: 1 1/4 cups milk (skim, 2 percent, or whole) 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed Pinch salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons mini semisweet chocolate chips Directions: In a microwave-safe container or glass measuring cup, microwave milk 30 seconds or until warm to the touch. Add brown sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add vanilla. Place 1/2 tablespoon chocolate chips in the bottom of each of four 1/3-cup icepop molds or small paper cups. Top each with milk mixture. Insert sticks and place molds in freezer. Freeze until solid, at least 3 hours. To release pops, run molds under warm water 20 to 30 seconds; they should slide right out. If using paper cups, simply peel cups away and discard. If your ice-pop mold does not include built-in sticks or a lid to hold them in place, you may find yourself with sticks pointing every which way but up. To prevent this, stretch a layer of plastic wrap over the top of the mold and secure it with a rubber band. Cut a small slit in the plastic, centered over each pop, and insert a stick through each opening. Alternatively, you can adjust sticks as necessary after about 45 minutes of freezing, when the pops arent yet frozen solid. For more no-bake dessert ideas, visit www.cookiedoughlovers.com You dont need an oven. You just need ingenuity to create crowd-pleasing summer treats.Help Pets Cope With Stress And Anxiety (StatePoint) When pets behave badly, its hard to remember how lovable they can be. Get a handle on barking, begging, jumping, scratching, digging and marking with a good attitude and the right tools. Keep Pets Happy An active pet is a calmer pet. Give furry friends plenty of exercise, so they dont use the kitchen as a dog run. Walks are a great start. Play games like fetch to give cats and dogs mental stimulation and release pent up anxiety. If theyve had their fun, theyll be far less likely to act out. The same way babies cry to express themselves; a pets behavior may simply be a message. While pain and discomfort can cause naughtiness such as inappropriate marking and a vet visit can confirm if thats the case much bad behavior is stressrelated. When you arent home, ensure pets needs are met. Provide access to water, toys, a window to watch the world from, and a clean litter box. Let dogs out immediately when you get home. Speak Your Pets Language Behavior training can change certain behaviors, but its not effective for everything and takes a great deal of time, money, and patience. On the other extreme, veterinarians may recommend sedatives as a last resort when other solutions have fail ed. New alternatives, however, can reduce or eliminate problems safely and quickly. In scientific studies, pheromones mimicking those produced by mother cats and dogs have been shown to modify both stressinduced behaviors and physiology, says Dr. John McGlone, a professor and animal behavior research scientist. Pheromones are naturally produced chemicals animals use to communicate with each other. Pheromone therapy is helping pets overcome difficult behavior problems. Consider outfitting active pets with a pheromone collar, such as one from Sentry. They last 30 days and go where pets go, so they are in constant contact with calming pheromones. Sentrys Stop That Spray may be useful for eliminating certain behaviors. For example, if pets bark excessively at the doorbell, applying spray will get the pets attention and send the message to stop barking, so you can greet guests trouble-free. When a pet expresses fear or stress from thunderstorms or loud noises, use a calming spray or diffuser in an enclosed space to prevent him from wreaking havoc throughout the house. More information can be found at www.sentrypetcare.com. Go to School Not everyone has the benefit of personal visits from Dog Whisperer, Cesar Milan. Obedience training however can benefit you both, while socializing your dog. Get training underway as young as possible to break bad habits before they get out of hand. Consider using pheromonebased products in conjunction for faster, more lasting results. Parents of problem pets: dont give up. Make bad behavior a thing of the past with a few key changes and the application of science.JULY 14, 2012 THE STAR PR 2 Great Bake-Free Desserts Ideas For Summer

JULY 14, 2012 THE STAR PR 4 (StatePoint) Preparing children for a new school year is no longer just about stocking up on pencils and notebooks. The face of education is changing, and a well-equipped student should know how to use new technology to personalize the learning experience and succeed in school. Digital resources and applications can stimulate and engage students by providing a more interactive learning experience, says Dan Caton, president of McGraw-Hill School Education. Some of the best digital learning tools personalize learning, adapt to childrens individual strengths and help them overcome unique challenges. While digital learning may come naturally to children, parents should get up to speed on technology as well to better understand how new tools and resources can help their children learn. Here are some great back-to-school tech-tips for parents: Talk to your children and their teachers about what they want to accomplish this year and how they can use traditional and new learning tools to meet goals. Encourage children to use computers and other web-enabled devices for more than just games and Facebook. If you think books are the same as when you went to school, think again. New digital textbooks available for download through applications like iBooks2, allow you to highlight text, make notes, or search inside the book. You can even have your tablet device read the book to you. Learn how this technology works so you can keep up with your kids. Some forward-thinking schools are using innovative programs like CINCH Learning, which makes the complete K12 math and 7-12 grade science curricula accessible online. Programs like these go beyond the textbook, so talk to your childrens teachers to learn how to maximize the programs interactive tools and games from home devices. Nearly half of all high school students who take Advanced Placement (AP) exams fail. But new subscription based programs like the ONboard series from McGrawHill Education are providing students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in these advanced courses. Parents of high school students should encourage teens to take advantage of such study aids before senior year. Pick a regular time each day dedicated to beefing up vocabulary, improving spelling, reading together and just talking about new topics and ideas. The International Reading Association (IRA) recommends giving children choices in what they read browse the ever-growing selection of age-appropriate books and periodicals available for download to your e-reader. If youre on a budget, dont stress. Not all technology will break the bank. In fact, with a bit of effort, you can find e-readers on sites like eBay for much less than retail cost. And as more devices come onto the market, prices will become even more affordable. Many public libraries offer access to computers so you can familiarize children with basic technology and a range of digital resources, such as free ebooks. For more information on how digital technology is changing the way kids learn, visit www.mheonline.com.

Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia StarJULY 14, 2012 THE STAR C&J 1 As an African American newspaper, we basically report on offenses committed by African Americans. Please note that in our observations, weekly reports show that African Americans DO NOT commit the largest percentage of criminal offenses in this area. Two Women Arrested and Four Children Removed Two women were arrested for drug charges and had their children taken away from their custody. Based on a Narcotics investigation, detectives received a search warrant and knocked on the door of the home of Tabatha Ann Fedrick, 33, and Taundia McDuffy, 22. Answering was Fedrick; detectives also located McDuffy on the rear porch of the home. Inside the home were four juveniles, ages 5, 5, 7, and 15. Detectives searched the home and seized Cocaine and Marijuana. The Department of Children and Families was notified and approved the release of the children and animals to a relative while they conduct a follow up investigation. Fedrick and McDuffy were arrested and charged with possession of Cocaine, possession of Marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Fedrick was released after posting a $4,500 bond. McDuffy is being held on no bond. Detectives were assisted by the Warrants Unit and Road Patrol during execution of the search warrant. Tabatha Fedrick Taundia McDuffy Lucious Felder Terry Joseph

The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. Telemarketing Fraud More and more are people being fooled and losing their money and identities through scams as they are becoming more believable. It can be hard to resist. A phone call from a charity seeking desperately needed funds for flood victims, endangered species, or the homeless. A postcard claiming you've won an amazing sweepstakes prize if you'll just call and send an "administrative fee." Or an investment offer giving you an "exclusive" chance to earn potentially enormous profits. But Resist You Must These are just a few examples of the kinds of fraudulent schemes Americans run across every day. Experts estimate that consumers lose more than $100 billion annually to a broad assortment of frauds, cons, and scams. Fraudulent telemarketing and direct mail appeals account for $40 billion of this total. Alarmingly, the Elderly Are a Major Target for con artists, especially phony fundraisers and hucksters hawking bogus investment and insurance schemes. Whether they are widowed and lonely, eager to help others, or merely intrigued by a "once in a lifetime" opportunity, increasing numbers of older Americans are falling for sophisticated and slick appeals that can wind up costing them thousands of dollars, not to mention untold anguish and stress. Taking Your Money is the Number-One Goal of the nation's scamming scoundrels. Many concoct their cons just to get a credit card number so they can go on a spending spree financed by Y-O-U. Others will bill you incredible sums for merely calling them to find out more. And still more want a check or cash as soon as possible--by overnight delivery, by wire or even courier--so they have their money before you have them figured out. What Consumer-Soaking Schemes Are All the Rage These Days? Among the major scams of the 1990s are postcard sweepstakes offer. In a recent poll, 30 percent of Americans said they had responded to such mailings, sometimes sending hundreds of dollars to "register" for a seemingly fabulous prize or trip. False Charities Are Another Popular Consumer Con. Telephone troublemakers claiming to represent everyone from police officers to the disabled take advantage of Americans' generosity to the tune of billions of dollars each year. Adding to the problem is an array of fraudulent appeals--in newspaper ads, on TV and by mail-about business and investment opportunities, vacation homes, and even "miracle cures" for everything from baldness to cancer. In the face of this onslaught of fraud, the best course for consumers is to beware. Here are some pointers so you won't be conned by the pros: If a caller asks for your credit card, bank account or Social Security number to verify a free vacation, a prize, or a gift, say "No" and hang up. If you're calling a 900 number in response to an advertisement or something you received in the mail, make sure you know all the charges up front. Before you agree to support a charity that calls seeking money, ask for written information about its finances and programs. If you feel you've been conned, call the police or the Better Business Bureau. Remember: consumer fraud is a crime. And last but not least, remember that an offer that sounds too good to be true, probably is. Your Safety Four Arrested in Failed Robbery AttemptFour men are in custody following an attempted armed robbery at a Fort Walton Beach convenience store. Deputies responded to an armed robbery at a Tom Thumb Food Store at approximately 12:40 a.m. The clerk stated two masked men entered the store, brandished handguns, and attempted to rob the store. According to reports, police later discovered that the four men planned to rob an individual who had marijuana that was originally in their possession. Both armed suspects fled the scene into a nearby neighborhood after the failed robbery attempt. Deputies were able to locate and stop the vehicle containing four occupants shortly after the robbery. One of the passengers was seen fleeing the vehicle. K9 units were called and were able to track down suspect Randall S. Spears, 21, in a wooded area where he was taken into custody without incident. The remaining three passengers were taken into custody after deputies learned they were also involved in the robbery. They were able to determine the shooters after reviewing surveillance footage from the store. Spears was arrested and faces felony charges of conspiracy to commit robbery with a firearm, dealing in stolen property, tampering with evidence, and furnishing a weapon to a minor. The two armed suspects that entered the store were 17year-old Derrick Jamal Steele and 20-year-old Javon Terrell Harris. They were arrested and faced with felony charges of robbery with a firearm, aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony, and displaying a firearm during a felony. The driver was 20-year-old Joel Kyeria Tatum who was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit robbery with a firearm, a first degree felony. Two firearms were also recovered in the area in which the suspect fled. Javon Harris Randall Spears Derrick Steele

Missing Baby Found in Car Seat in Middle of Street Tulsa, OK30-year-old Myia Natrice Cole reported to police at around 9:30 p.m. about her 11-month-old who was missing.
