It was reported that entertainer Flavor Flav threw his fiancee to the floor twice and grabbed two knives as he chased and threatened to kill her 17-yearold son during an argument Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas. The former rapper, hip-hop and reality TV star, cut his finger with one of the knives before police arrived. The 53-year-old and his 39-year-old fiancee have been together for eight years. Her son intervened after Flav had grabbed her and threw her to the floor. The son is 6 feet, 175 pounds, Flav is 5 feet-6, 131 pounds. Their return address says Progressives but their mailings dont match since they contain information that is not philosophically consistent with real progressives. State Senator Audrey Gibson, has thus filed a legal complaint against Progressives of Tallahassee with a Washington, D. C. telephone number, citing violations in state election law with the Ethics Commission. The organization has mailed out several pieces of literature against Democratic candidates. She says that the organization has made several expenditures for several electioneering communications but have failed to report contributions as required by law. It has been 50 years since the segregation policy ended at Ole Miss. And now, the student body has crowned Courtney Roxanne Pearson as their queen, According to records, no one really questioned why the students strayed away for their standard of beauty from a small, blonde haired, blue-eyed beauty to an overweight, dark skinned, young female. No one talked about her other beautiful qualities, except their vote. Another example of how your vote counts. A Missouri couple filed a 10-Count law suit against two obstetricians claiming their babys head was separated from its body when they tried to deliver the infant. The couple said that during an earlier appointment, a doctor advised them that because of the size of the babys stomach, it would not be a normal delivery. However, when the mother went into labor, the doctor refused to perform a C-section stating he would only deliver the baby by way of attempted trial of vaginal delivery. According to reports, during the birth, the boys head breached but the rest of his body got stuck, separating it from the cervical spine. www.thefloridastar.com Looking for customers to patronize your business or utilize your services?

See Page B-2 PROTECT YOUR VOTE: VOTE EARLY! By Charley Williams, Voter Services Chair, League of Women Voters of Florida This years 2012 November 6 ballot is one of the longest in Floridas history. In addition, all voters need to understand that Floridas election laws have recently changed. These changes could impact voters who wait until Election Day to vote. This is particularly true of voters who have recently moved. The League reminds all voters to take advantage of Early Voting. Duval County offers early voting at 15 local libraries, from 7:00 am. to7:00 pm, Saturday to Saturday, Oct. 27 to Nov. 3rd. Alternatively, you can vote by mail (known as absentee voting). You can call and request an absentee ballot at 904-630-1414, up until Wed, October 31. Any voter can request a ballot and there is no charge. Be sure to sign the back of the envelope before you mail it back. If there is no signature, your vote wont count. Return postage in Duval County is pre-paid. REMEMBER: ELECTION DAY IS THE LAST DAY TO VOTE. Find your closest early voting library site at www.bereadytovote.org Reasons to vote early: (1) Because staff at early voting sites have access to the live, statewide voter registration database and can verify your eligibility to vote on the spot. (2) At Early Voting, you can conveniently resolve most issues you might encounter with your voting status. For example, Vote Early: if you have any uncertainty about your eligibility to vote if you have moved from another county in Florida if you're not sure if you're registered at your current address if you're not sure if your signature has changed if you're not sure if you have valid signature and photo identification if you requested but did not receive your mail-in-ballot if you received but then lost your mail-in-ballot if you're not sure you can make it to your own precinct on Election Day (3) Voting Early gives you time to fix issues with your status. (4) Vote early because you can update your address at the early voting site even if you moved from out of the county. (By contrast, if you wait to vote on Election Day and you have moved from one county to another in Florida, then you must vote a provisional ballot rather than a regular ballot.) (5) Vote Early because when you cast a regular ballot in person, you can fix your ballot if you make a mistake. (For example, when you vote a regular ballot, you put the ballot in the machine yourself. If you vote for two candidates in the same race, the machine will spit out your ballot.) When you vote in person, you are allowed up to three ballots to get it right. By contrast, when you vote by mail, you get only one chance.

Attorneys in the case estimated it would last about three weeks. Zimmerman confessed to shooting and killing the 17-year-old in March, claiming he was using Floridas controversial Stand Your Ground law to defend himself against the black teenager. The lack of immediate charges against Zimmerman„who is Hispanic„led to a national outcry both in support and against him, and authorities eventually charged Zimmerman, 29, with second-degree murder. His wife, Shellie Zimmerman, 25, has been charged with perjury.

And Im Telling You, Jennifer Holliday + EWC Concert Choir + the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra = the Edward Waters College 11 th Annual Fine Arts Scholarship Benefit Concert. This evening of elegance and magnificent entertainment brought to a close the Edward Waters College Homecoming Weekend activities. The scholarship concert is held annually as a fundraising effort to benefit students at the college. The event was supported by many corporate sponsors, patrons, and advertisers including: Florida Blue, Brennan, Manna & Diamond Law Firm, Fifth Third Bank, Jacksonville Port Authority, Bethel A.M.E. Church of Tallahassee, Florida, Dr. James Ewers and Family, The Law Office of Craig Gibbs, Jacksonville Orthodontics, Atty. Kay Harper and The Harper Law Firm, Jacksonville Transportation Authority, and The Florida Star/Georgia Star Newspaper At the VIP reception, Ms. Holliday graciously greeted and took photos with individuals and the Concert Choir. The program began with opening remarks from EWC alumnus and PresidentNathaniel Glover Its hard to believe that a year has passed since Mr. Glover introduced the 10 th Annual concert, a day after the inaugural ceremonies which installed him as president of the college. The Edward Waters College Concert Choir and the Jacksonville Symphony with EWC Concert Choir Director Barbara McNeely-Bouie conducting performed arrangements by several noted composers, among them Wolfgang, Amadeus Mozart and Richard Smallwood. Ms. Holliday, accompanied by the Symphony and her musical director on piano, sang a medley of tunes made famous by Ella Fitzgerald (she joked that she hadnt learned to scat like Ella), such as A Tisket, A TasketŽ and How High the MoonŽ, a Richard Smallwood composition, Psalm 8Ž, performed with the Concert Choir, Duke Ellingtons Come SundayŽ (a recording which won her a second Grammy), and One Night OnlyŽ and Im ChangingŽ, tunes from Dreamgirls the Broadway production for which she won a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical as the character Effie White. She closed the evening with her signature song from Dreamgirls And Im Telling You, Im Not GoingŽ which garnered a Grammy Award (her first) for Best R&B Female Vocalist.

PAGE A-6 THESTAR OCTOBER 20, 2012ENTERTAINMENT Cicely Tyson No Fanfare, Just Full Steam Ahead!By Rych McCain, Feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net and Facebook Cicely Tyson Liongate Photo One would think that after a successful modeling and acting career that spans five decades; and being considered by many as an American artistic treasure and icon, she would be content to lay back and rest on her laurels and accomplishments but not so for the magnificent actress Cicely Tyson. However, when you mention the word great in her presence she is quick to correct you saying Im not a great actress. I strive to be a good actress. That word greatŽ is bandied around entirely too much.Ž As mentioned above, there are many who would tend to disagree with her. After all this Harlem native is a Best Lead ActressŽ Oscar nominee for her role in the 1972 movie SounderŽ and was the first Black actress to win the Outstanding Lead Actress in a TV MovieŽ Emmy in 1974 for The Autobiography Of Miss Jane PittmanŽ as well as other critically acclaimed roles. Tyson began her career as a model after being discovered by a fashion editor at Ebony Magazine and worked her way to the top in that field. Then she studied and made the transition to acting. Her body of work is not as extensive as it could have been due to her commitment to portray only strong, positive images of Black women. Tysons latest role is a prime example. She plays Nana Mama, the grandmother/mother figure in the Alex and Maria Cross household. Of course we are talking the new Tyler Perry action/thriller movie Alex Cross.Ž Tyson really enjoyed working with Perry again. There is a scene where Perry grabs her from behind and lifts Tyson off of her feet. Was that something she was expecting from the script? She laughs, No, No, I did not. I mean, as his mother, I certainly did not expect him to do that to me. But we do have a lot of very playful moments and he does that at a time when Im getting at him to change my attitude towards him.Ž What is Tysons take on her character Nana Mama? Turning serious, Tyson breaks it down, Well first of all I think and what I hope the audience takes away is the fact that she is a mother. To me its the most important feature in her personality. And then add to that fact that if anything ever happened to her son, she would not only be grandmother but mother to his children. And so, I was torn between his love for the work that he chose and the fact that any day he could not come home to me nor his children. So that was extremely difficult for me.Ž The stress of being Nana Mama shows as the character is always cranky. Tyson agrees explaining, Because shes living on the edge. Shes living on a very threatening possibility she can loose him any day that he can walk out of that door and never come back. So shes always on edge about that. He has consistently tried to kind of slough it off as I know what Im doing, this is what I love doing and so on and so forth. But she knows the facts that his life is in absolute jeopardy. And as a result, so is mine and so are his children.Ž Because this is Perrys first action-hero film where he is strictly an actor and not the writer/director, what butterfly did both have about working with each other under these circumstances? Tyson muses, Oddly enough he (Perry) said to me time and time again, I cant believe Im in a scene with Cicely Tyson. Im doing a scene with Cicely Tyson. He went to the director and said I dont know how to act; Im doing a scene with Cicely Tyson. By the same token, Im looking at him and Im saying, oh my God, Im doing a scene with Tyler Perry. Im really doing a dramatic scene with Tyler Perry. So we both actually had the same anxieties about working in this particular capacity with each other. Tyson has an incredible body of work. So when a new project comes her way, is there any pressure to except a certain level of project or does she take it for face value for what it is? Tyson says, No I never take anything at face value. I have always maintained one way of selecting a role that I would play and its through reading the script. And if my skin tingles, I know its for me, if my stomach churns, I know its a pass. And thats my way of deciding.

(Photos: Frank Powell lll) And I Am Telling You... Jennifer Hollidays EWC Homecoming Performance Was A Hit! Covington Celebrates 84th Birthday With Congresswoman Daughter, Son and Cosmetologists A homecoming football win was certainly reason enough to make Edward Waters College get into holiday mode. However, no true holiday can be experienced without the signature vocal stylings of the legendary Jennifer Holiday herself. Accompanied by the EWC Concert Choir and the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, Holliday did not disappoint when she performed last weekend at the TimesUnion Center for the Performing Arts to raise money for scholarships. Holliday is known for heart-stopping high notes in her iconic performance as Effie White in the Broadway play Dreamgirls, where she has perhaps one of the most memorable performances ever to hit the great white way ending the first act by belting out And Im Telling You Im Not Going (also known as Youre Gonna Love Me). Holliday, who is still considered one of the Queens of Broadway, also won a Grammy for her recording of the song. The diva has also enjoyed some time on the Billboard charts as a recording artist, and ventured into recurring roles on several television shows including Ally McBeal She most recently appeared in a duet on American Idol. Grammy and Tony award winner Jennifer Holliday hits the stage for scholarships.

Four Convicted Felons Arrested After Failed Robbery Four convicted felons were arrested after a poorly attempted robbery and evidence that gave it all away. Police received a call at 11:12 p.m. to a home from a woman who said she was watching television when someone suddenly pushed her front door open. She rushed toward the door and one of the suspects immediately fled. Police arrived and also talked to a neighbor who said he saw a man with dreadlocks running down the street. While deputies were outside the victims home, they heard an engine running and saw a 1995 white Oldsmobile with no headlights on speeding toward them. The driver turned on his headlights as it approached and was stopped by the police. They noticed that the four men inside were all sweaty and covered with dirt and sawdust type material on them. The driver, 21-year-old Garomy Keron Golloman, matched the description given of the suspect involved in the home burglary. All four men stepped out of the car and were searched. Each of the four men gave separate different stories as to why they were in the area and where they were going. Police searched the area and located a pair of gloves in the middle of the road by the victims home. Another set of gloves were found nearby a few houses down from where the other pair was found. Police also located a van with the ignition punched and several large items inside that may have been stolen. Detectives continue their investigation into the van case and have not released any further details at this time. Golloman was arrested along with James Allen Richardson, 44, Terrence Lamont Jones, 43, and Daniel Coleman Jr., 48. They were charged with felony occupied burglary. and are being held on no bond. Golloman was also charged with Violation of Probation. Detectives said all four are convicted felons.

C&J 2THE STAROCTOBER 20, 2012 SSSHH! From Actual Police ReportsDid You Hear About?... Did You Hear About?... EDITORS NOTE: All suspects are deemed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. Top Economic Scams in Your Area 1. Pigeon DropThis scam usually involves two suspects, one suspect will state they have and visually show the victim a large amount of cash and/or savings bonds. The second suspect will approach and add his opinion on what to do with the money. The suspects manipulate the victim into thinking that they will be able to split the money three ways if they can secure or verify the other cash and bonds. The suspects eventually collect all of the cash from the victim and leave the victim holding a bag of worthless paper. The elderly are usually targeted as victims, and this generally occurs in store parking lots. 2. Jamaican Sweepstakes ScamThis scam involves a phone call usually from a Jamaican cell phone number declaring to the victim that they have won a cash prize or vehicle. The victim is then told that they must provide some tax cash or stamps to pay customs for the cash being allowed to enter the country. The suspect will give the victim instructions to wire money to Jamaica for the purpose of releasing the cash and car. The victim will be told over and over that there were issues and more money will need to be wired. The victim never receives any prize. Anytime you are asked to pay money in order to receive a cash prize, you need to be aware. 3. Secret Shopper ScamThis scam will generally originate through email or regular mail. The scam involves a seemingly legitimate check being mailed to the victim, giving directions for secretly shopping for an item. The check will be for more than the item will cost. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check into their checking account and wire a set amount of money back to the company. Shortly after the victim deposits the check and wires the money, the victims bank will declare that the check is counterfeit and the victim is responsible for the full amount withdrawn from the account. 4. Reshipping ScamThis scam involves the victim looking for a work from home job. The victim will be told that they are working for a logistics company (or similar). The victim is told that they will be paid monthly, usually a large amount and reimbursed for shipping supplies. The victim will be instructed to reship items that are delivered to victims address, usually out of the country. The victim is told that they will not be paid until the end of the second month. The victim continues to reship the items anticipating the large paycheck that will never show up. 5. Craigslist/Classified Ad Scam This scam involves the victim selling something via a classified ad. The victim will be contacted by an interested party. Usually the full asking price will be agreed upon and the purchaser will send a check to the seller. The check arrives and is for much more than the agreed upon price. The purchaser will re-contact the seller and state that it was a mistake, and will have the seller return the overage to the purchaser. The seller deposits the check and sends the overage back to the purchaser, at which time the sellers bank tells them the check is fraudulent. The seller is now responsible for the total amount withdrawn from the account. 6. Grandson/Granddaughter stuck overseas and needs money to get out of jail or pay for hospital bills calls grandma/grandpa to wire the money. 7. ATM/Waiter/Gas Pump skimming … Small handheld device is used to scan your debit/credit card number. Then your credit card numbers are sent to another location, sometimes out of the country and used to make purchases. Your Safety Two Arrested After Woman Dies from Pepper Spray Two men were arrested for the death of a woman who unfortunately died from pepper spray. 20-year-old Ronnie Lanard Tyson and 21-year-old Kenyatta Simario Grant were caught by surveillance cameras in the early morning hours outside of an event at a cafe. Surveillance video showed Tyson spraying pepper spray in a mans face to distract him as Grant tried to yank the silver chain and medallion from his neck. The pepper spray drifted into the large crowd, and people began to run. As 28-year-old Kimberly Clarke inhaled the spray, she struggled to breathe, calling for help as she fled and falling to the ground. About 20 minutes later, other attendees realized she was still unconscious on the ground and called for help. Fire Rescue paramedics transported Clarke to the hospital in critical condition. She was said to have a heart condition and never regained consciousness. She died nine days later after the incident. Detectives initially released surveillance video that showed the robbery and both suspects running off camera. The robbery victim is seen on video retrieving his handgun from his car and running after them. He is then seen retreating after spotting an FHP trooper working an off-duty detail at the truck stop. A second surveillance video released by detectives showed Tyson at the truck stop convenience store about two hours before pepper spraying the crowd. Police put pictures up on the internet asking for assistance from the public to identify the suspects. They received multiple Crime Stoppers tips identifying Tyson. Their investigation later led them to Grant. Grant was tracked down and arrested, while Tyson turned himself in a few days after. They were both charged with felony murder.

According to reports, Porter is also facing charges from another home invasion investigation. The victim of the home invasion said Porter broke into her home and pointed a gun at her demanding money. She said when she told him she didnt have any, he put her on her stomach on the bed. During the struggle, Porters gun went off hitting him in his own head. Porter was arrested and charged with armed home invasion, armed robbery, and armed burglary. His other two accomplices were arrested and charged with the same charges. According to records, he has been arrested in 2002 for various cocainerelated charges and served about 18 months.

He was also caught spending up to $4,000 at a Target store using the credit card of the 87-year-old Police believed Hartfield to really be a woman at first, but later released that the suspect was actually a man after finding out it was a disguise. They let it be known that Hartfield wore wigs and medical scrub attire. Police are asking the public for any information on Hartfields whereabouts, including an unknown black male who was seen with him at the Target store. Hartfield is suspected of committing similar offenses throughout the country Man Uses 1-Year-Old Son as Shield Against Taser Houston,TX50-year-old Clifford French had been in an argument with his common-law wife at an apartment. French was said to have hit her and when police arrived, he did not cooperate. French continually did not show any signs of complying with police and refused to be arrested. One of the officers decided to pull out a Taser gun to shock Miller. Miller immediately reacted by holding his baby and using him as a shield. Police say it got to the point where the baby was choked as French tried to protect himself from anymore possible tasering. He eventually surrendered and was arrested. He will face a felony charge of child endangerment and an assault charge.

OCTOBER 20, 2012 THE STAR PR 2 Success ParkThere may be no more fitting name than Success Park. The new recreation space near the Edward Waters College campus shows the power of public-private partnership and the benefits of government working with business and community leaders. The half-acre park at the intersection of Pearce and Dot streets in the New Town Success Zone park includes a walking trail, playground equipment, benches, adult fitness equipment and passive green space. Further improvements will include additional trees and a picnic and pavilion area, provided by TD Bank. The park project began last summer and was completed in March 2012. Earlier this week, Mayor Alvin Brown joined Edward Waters College President Nat Glover and other community leaders for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. He commended President Glover for the colleges commitment to care for the park. That means the city will be able to increase public recreation space without increasing the taxpayer cost of ongoing maintenance. This is what happens when government works with business and community leaders. We all win. Progress is visible and we put Jacksonville first,Ž said Mayor Brown. For more information visit COJ.net.

Considering their parents struggles with college debt, it comes as no surprise that Gen Z is eager to ensure they graduate with as little debt as possible. Among this group of young adults, 39 percent cited that paying for college was a top concern, while another 39 percent said they were also concerned about having a large student loan balance. The following tips are for families gearing up for college: 1. Calculate the costs While a quick online search can give families an idea of college expenses, predicting future costs can be a bit more challenging. There are a number of free online resources available that can help parents and teens estimate how much theyll need to save for college so they can get a solid plan in place. 2. Explore your savings options Parents and teens should work together to research college savings options like 529 college savings plans, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts and custodial accounts. Once they decide on a plan that will work for them, the saving can begin. 3. Turn talk into action Once a college savings plan is established, parents and teens should follow through on their planning and make a conscious effort to save.

OCTOBER 20, 2012PREP RAP PR 3 Florida Ophthalmologists Warn Parents and Teens about the Dangers of Decorative Contact Lenses when Purchased Without a PrescriptionPopular Halloween products can lead to eye damage and vision loss JACKSONVILLE, Fla. … As kids across the state shop for their Halloween costumes, the Florida Society of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Ophthalmology are warning Florida parents and teens about the dangers of non-prescription decorative contact lenses. Decorative contact lenses are increasingly popular to create elaborate costumes, offering blood drenched vampire eyes, glow-in-the-dark lizard eyes and more. Unfortunately, decorative contact lenses can also lead to real-life nightmares, including permanent eye damage and vision loss. One study found that wearing decorative contact lenses increased the risk for developing keratitis … a potentially blinding infection that causes an ulcer on the eye … by more than 16 times.[i] These patients were most often teenagers or young adults. All contact lenses require a prescription and proper fitting by an eye care professional such as an ophthalmologist … an eye medical doctor. Even if someone has perfect vision, they need to get an eye exam and a prescription in order to wear any kind of contacts, including decorative contact lenses. Products that claim one size fits allŽ or no need to see an eye specialistŽ can mislead consumers and may be on the market illegally. Unlike corrective lenses, which most patients understand to require professional screening and fitting, decorative lenses are easily obtainable in costume shops and online, which leads people to believe that they are safe,Ž said Charles B. Slonim, M.D., president of the Florida Society of Ophthalmology. Unfortunately, its not uncommon to see permanent eye damage and vision loss from over-the-counter cosmetic lenses. We discourage all consumers from wearing contact lenses obtained in beauty salons, novelty shops, or costume stores.Ž In 2005, a federal law classified all contact lenses as medical devices and restricted their distribution to licensed eye care professionals. Illegal sale of contact lenses can result in civil penalties of up to $11,000 per violation. Additionally, some decorative lenses, such as trendy circle lenses, are not FDA-approved. Consumers should only buy decorative contact lenses from an eye care professional or a seller who asks for a prescription and sells FDAapproved products. To safely wear decorative contact lenses this Halloween or any time of year, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends following these guidelines: Get an eye exam from an eye care professional such as an ophthalmologist. Obtain a valid prescription that includes the brand name, lens measurements, and expiration date. Purchase the decorative contact lenses from a licensed eye care professional or an eye product retailer who asks for a prescription. Follow the directions for cleaning, disinfecting, and wearing the lenses. Never share contact lenses with another person. Get follow up exams by your eye care provider. To obtain a prescription for decorative contact lenses, an eye care professional will measure each eye to ensure proper fit. Contacts that are not fitted by an eye care professional may scratch the eye or cause blood vessels to grow into the cornea. An eye care professional will also provide contact lens care instructions. Contacts that are left in for too long or that are not properly cleaned and disinfected can significantly increase the risk of an eye infection. If you notice redness, swelling, excessive discharge, pain or discomfort from wearing contact lenses, remove the lenses and seek immediate medical attention from an ophthalmologist. Eye infections like keratitis can quickly become serious and cause blindness if left untreated.

It was reported that entertainer Flavor Flav threw his fiancee to the floor twice and grabbed two knives as he chased and threatened to kill her 17-yearold son during an argument Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas. The former rapper, hip-hop and reality TV star, cut his finger with one of the knives before police arrived. The 53-year-old and his 39-year-old fiancee have been together for eight years. Her son intervened after Flav had grabbed her and threw her to the floor. The son is 6 feet, 175 pounds, Flav is 5 feet-6, 131 pounds. Their return address says Progressives but their mailings dont match since they contain information that is not philosophically consistent with real progressives. State Senator Audrey Gibson, has thus filed a legal complaint against Progressives of Tallahassee with a Washington, D. C. telephone number, citing violations in state election law with the Ethics Commission. The organization has mailed out several pieces of literature against Democratic candidates. She says that the organization has made several expenditures for several electioneering communications but have failed to report contributions as required by law. It has been 50 years since the segregation policy ended at Ole Miss. And now, the student body has crowned Courtney Roxanne Pearson as their queen, According to records, no one really questioned why the students strayed away for their standard of beauty from a small, blonde haired, blue-eyed beauty to an overweight, dark skinned, young female. No one talked about her other beautiful qualities, except their vote. Another example of how your vote counts. A Missouri couple filed a 10-Count law suit against two obstetricians claiming their babys head was separated from its body when they tried to deliver the infant. The couple said that during an earlier appointment, a doctor advised them that because of the size of the babys stomach, it would not be a normal delivery. However, when the mother went into labor, the doctor refused to perform a C-section stating he would only deliver the baby by way of attempted trial of vaginal delivery. According to reports, during the birth, the boys head breached but the rest of his body got stuck, separating it from the cervical spine. www.thefloridastar.com Looking for customers to patronize your business or utilize your services?

See Page B-2 PROTECT YOUR VOTE: VOTE EARLY! By Charley Williams, Voter Services Chair, League of Women Voters of Florida This years 2012 November 6 ballot is one of the longest in Floridas history. In addition, all voters need to understand that Floridas election laws have recently changed. These changes could impact voters who wait until Election Day to vote. This is particularly true of voters who have recently moved. The League reminds all voters to take advantage of Early Voting. Duval County offers early voting at 15 local libraries, from 7:00 am. to7:00 pm, Saturday to Saturday, Oct. 27 to Nov. 3rd. Alternatively, you can vote by mail (known as absentee voting). You can call and request an absentee ballot at 904-630-1414, up until Wed, October 31. Any voter can request a ballot and there is no charge. Be sure to sign the back of the envelope before you mail it back. If there is no signature, your vote wont count. Return postage in Duval County is pre-paid. REMEMBER: ELECTION DAY IS THE LAST DAY TO VOTE. Find your closest early voting library site at www.bereadytovote.org Reasons to vote early: (1) Because staff at early voting sites have access to the live, statewide voter registration database and can verify your eligibility to vote on the spot. (2) At Early Voting, you can conveniently resolve most issues you might encounter with your voting status. For example, Vote Early: if you have any uncertainty about your eligibility to vote if you have moved from another county in Florida if you're not sure if you're registered at your current address if you're not sure if your signature has changed if you're not sure if you have valid signature and photo identification if you requested but did not receive your mail-in-ballot if you received but then lost your mail-in-ballot if you're not sure you can make it to your own precinct on Election Day (3) Voting Early gives you time to fix issues with your status. (4) Vote early because you can update your address at the early voting site even if you moved from out of the county. (By contrast, if you wait to vote on Election Day and you have moved from one county to another in Florida, then you must vote a provisional ballot rather than a regular ballot.) (5) Vote Early because when you cast a regular ballot in person, you can fix your ballot if you make a mistake. (For example, when you vote a regular ballot, you put the ballot in the machine yourself. If you vote for two candidates in the same race, the machine will spit out your ballot.) When you vote in person, you are allowed up to three ballots to get it right. By contrast, when you vote by mail, you get only one chance.

PAGE A-4 THE STAR OCTOBER 20, 2012Talk of the Town! Talk of the Town! Frances Bradley Columnist frances@thefloridastar.comVolume Burks, Photographer E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome. And Im Telling You, Jennifer Holliday + EWC Concert Choir + the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra = the Edward Waters College 11 th Annual Fine Arts Scholarship Benefit Concert. This evening of elegance and magnificent entertainment brought to a close the Edward Waters College Homecoming Weekend activities. The scholarship concert is held annually as a fundraising effort to benefit students at the college. The event was supported by many corporate sponsors, patrons, and advertisers including: Florida Blue, Brennan, Manna & Diamond Law Firm, Fifth Third Bank, Jacksonville Port Authority, Bethel A.M.E. Church of Tallahassee, Florida, Dr. James Ewers and Family, The Law Office of Craig Gibbs, Jacksonville Orthodontics, Atty. Kay Harper and The Harper Law Firm, Jacksonville Transportation Authority, and The Florida Star/Georgia Star Newspaper At the VIP reception, Ms. Holliday graciously greeted and took photos with individuals and the Concert Choir. The program began with opening remarks from EWC alumnus and PresidentNathaniel Glover. Its hard to believe that a year has passed since Mr. Glover introduced the 10 th Annual concert, a day after the inaugural ceremonies which installed him as president of the college. The Edward Waters College Concert Choir and the Jacksonville Symphony with EWC Concert Choir Director Barbara McNeely-Bouie conducting performed arrangements by several noted composers, among them Wolfgang, Amadeus Mozart and Richard Smallwood. Ms. Holliday, accompanied by the Symphony and her musical director on piano, sang a medley of tunes made famous by Ella Fitzgerald (she joked that she hadnt learned to scat like Ella), such as A Tisket, A Tasket and How High the Moon, a Richard Smallwood composition, Psalm 8, performed with the Concert Choir, Duke Ellingtons Come Sunday (a recording which won her a second Grammy), and One Night Only and Im Changing, tunes from Dreamgirls, the Broadway production for which she won a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical as the character Effie White. She closed the evening with her signature song from Dreamgirls, And Im Telling You, Im Not Going which garnered a Grammy Award (her first) for Best R&B Female Vocalist. The Benefit Concert Planning Committee was: Congresswoman Corrine Brown, Honorary Chairperson, Madeline Scales-Taylor, Chairperson, Von Alexander, Jacquie Gibbs, Jackie Gray, Eric Johnson, President, EWC National Alumni Association, Cheryl Lawson Wright, Charlene Taylor-Hill, J. Russell Richardson, and EWC staff, Wanda Willis, Assistant Vice-President, C. Blake Hacht, Coordinator for Public Relations, and Stavius Powell, Alumni Affairs Coordinator.

PAGE A-6 THESTAR OCTOBER 20, 2012ENTERTAINMENT Cicely Tyson No Fanfare, Just Full Steam Ahead!By Rych McCain, Feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net and Facebook Cicely Tyson Liongate Photo One would think that after a successful modeling and acting career that spans five decades; and being considered by many as an American artistic treasure and icon, she would be content to lay back and rest on her laurels and accomplishments but not so for the magnificent actress Cicely Tyson. However, when you mention the word great in her presence she is quick to correct you saying Im not a great actress. I strive to be a good actress. That word great is bandied around entirely too much. As mentioned above, there are many who would tend to disagree with her. After all this Harlem native is a Best Lead Actress Oscar nominee for her role in the 1972 movie Sounder and was the first Black actress to win the Outstanding Lead Actress in a TV Movie Emmy in 1974 for The Autobiography Of Miss Jane Pittman as well as other critically acclaimed roles. Tyson began her career as a model after being discovered by a fashion editor at Ebony Magazine and worked her way to the top in that field. Then she studied and made the transition to acting. Her body of work is not as extensive as it could have been due to her commitment to portray only strong, positive images of Black women. Tysons latest role is a prime example. She plays Nana Mama, the grandmother/mother figure in the Alex and Maria Cross household. Of course we are talking the new Tyler Perry action/thriller movie Alex Cross. Tyson really enjoyed working with Perry again. There is a scene where Perry grabs her from behind and lifts Tyson off of her feet. Was that something she was expecting from the script? She laughs, No, No, I did not. I mean, as his mother, I certainly did not expect him to do that to me. But we do have a lot of very playful moments and he does that at a time when Im getting at him to change my attitude towards him. What is Tysons take on her character Nana Mama? Turning serious, Tyson breaks it down, Well first of all I think and what I hope the audience takes away is the fact that she is a mother. To me its the most important feature in her personality. And then add to that fact that if anything ever happened to her son, she would not only be grandmother but mother to his children. And so, I was torn between his love for the work that he chose and the fact that any day he could not come home to me nor his children. So that was extremely difficult for me. The stress of being Nana Mama shows as the character is always cranky. Tyson agrees explaining, Because shes living on the edge. Shes living on a very threatening possibility she can loose him any day that he can walk out of that door and never come back. So shes always on edge about that. He has consistently tried to kind of slough it off as I know what Im doing, this is what I love doing and so on and so forth. But she knows the facts that his life is in absolute jeopardy. And as a result, so is mine and so are his children. Because this is Perrys first action-hero film where he is strictly an actor and not the writer/director, what butterfly did both have about working with each other under these circumstances? Tyson muses, Oddly enough he (Perry) said to me time and time again, I cant believe Im in a scene with Cicely Tyson. Im doing a scene with Cicely Tyson. He went to the director and said I dont know how to act; Im doing a scene with Cicely Tyson. By the same token, Im looking at him and Im saying, oh my God, Im doing a scene with Tyler Perry. Im really doing a dramatic scene with Tyler Perry. So we both actually had the same anxieties about working in this particular capacity with each other. Tyson has an incredible body of work. So when a new project comes her way, is there any pressure to except a certain level of project or does she take it for face value for what it is? Tyson says, No I never take anything at face value. I have always maintained one way of selecting a role that I would play and its through reading the script. And if my skin tingles, I know its for me, if my stomach churns, I know its a pass. And thats my way of deciding.

(Photos: Frank Powell lll) And I Am Telling You... Jennifer Hollidays EWC Homecoming Performance Was A Hit! Covington Celebrates 84th Birthday With Congresswoman Daughter, Son and Cosmetologists A homecoming football win was certainly reason enough to make Edward Waters College get into holiday mode. However, no true holiday can be experienced without the signature vocal stylings of the legendary Jennifer Holiday herself. Accompanied by the EWC Concert Choir and the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, Holliday did not disappoint when she performed last weekend at the TimesUnion Center for the Performing Arts to raise money for scholarships. Holliday is known for heart-stopping high notes in her iconic performance as Effie White in the Broadway play Dreamgirls, where she has perhaps one of the most memorable performances ever to hit the great white way ending the first act by belting out And Im Telling You Im Not Going (also known as Youre Gonna Love Me). Holliday, who is still considered one of the Queens of Broadway, also won a Grammy for her recording of the song. The diva has also enjoyed some time on the Billboard charts as a recording artist, and ventured into recurring roles on several television shows including Ally McBeal She most recently appeared in a duet on American Idol. Grammy and Tony award winner Jennifer Holliday hits the stage for scholarships.

OCTOBER 20, 2012 THESTAR PAGEB-4 Jacksonville Faces Road Test Against Team Also Looking For Second Win By MIKEBONTS Florida Sports Wire The bye week for the 1-4 Jacksonville Jaguars is over and it was back to work Monday for players and coaches. It was good to be back here today. You can tell they have a little more energy, a little more juice in them when they came out to practice today, said head coach Mike Mularkey. I think it was a good time for a bye and really thinking about that halfway right through it counting training camp and the season, so I think it came right on time for us. SMITH BACK AT PRACTICE: Outside linebacker and eight-year veteran Daryl Smith practiced for the first time in six weeks on Monday. His status for Sundays game at Oakland is expected to be decided later in the week. Smith set a franchise record for tackles for loss last season, and is the leading tackler in Jaguars history. He has yet to play after sustaining a preseason groin injury. Im hoping he can play. I think everybody is, said Mularkey. ROSTER MOVES: The Jaguars signed veteran safety Chris Harris this week. In 11 combined games last season, he totaled 29 tackles and one interception while playing for Detroit and Chicago. The former Bears 2005 sixth-round pick has recorded 421 tackles, 16 interceptions and 13 forced fumbles in 96 games for the Bears, Panthers and Lions. Jacksonville waived cornerback Kevin Rutland.

Four Convicted Felons Arrested After Failed Robbery Four convicted felons were arrested after a poorly attempted robbery and evidence that gave it all away. Police received a call at 11:12 p.m. to a home from a woman who said she was watching television when someone suddenly pushed her front door open. She rushed toward the door and one of the suspects immediately fled. Police arrived and also talked to a neighbor who said he saw a man with dreadlocks running down the street. While deputies were outside the victims home, they heard an engine running and saw a 1995 white Oldsmobile with no headlights on speeding toward them. The driver turned on his headlights as it approached and was stopped by the police. They noticed that the four men inside were all sweaty and covered with dirt and sawdust type material on them. The driver, 21-year-old Garomy Keron Golloman, matched the description given of the suspect involved in the home burglary. All four men stepped out of the car and were searched. Each of the four men gave separate different stories as to why they were in the area and where they were going. Police searched the area and located a pair of gloves in the middle of the road by the victims home. Another set of gloves were found nearby a few houses down from where the other pair was found. Police also located a van with the ignition punched and several large items inside that may have been stolen. Detectives continue their investigation into the van case and have not released any further details at this time. Golloman was arrested along with James Allen Richardson, 44, Terrence Lamont Jones, 43, and Daniel Coleman Jr., 48. They were charged with felony occupied burglary. and are being held on no bond. Golloman was also charged with Violation of Probation. Detectives said all four are convicted felons.

C&J 2 THE STAR OCTOBER 20, 2012 SSSHH! From Actual Police ReportsDid You Hear About?... Did You Hear About?... EDITORS NOTE: All suspects are deemed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. The Sheriffs Office reports are a matter of public record. The Star seeks to educate in the hope of keeping our community safe. Top Economic Scams in Your Area 1. Pigeon DropThis scam usually involves two suspects, one suspect will state they have and visually show the victim a large amount of cash and/or savings bonds. The second suspect will approach and add his opinion on what to do with the money. The suspects manipulate the victim into thinking that they will be able to split the money three ways if they can secure or verify the other cash and bonds. The suspects eventually collect all of the cash from the victim and leave the victim holding a bag of worthless paper. The elderly are usually targeted as victims, and this generally occurs in store parking lots. 2. Jamaican Sweepstakes ScamThis scam involves a phone call usually from a Jamaican cell phone number declaring to the victim that they have won a cash prize or vehicle. The victim is then told that they must provide some tax cash or stamps to pay customs for the cash being allowed to enter the country. The suspect will give the victim instructions to wire money to Jamaica for the purpose of releasing the cash and car. The victim will be told over and over that there were issues and more money will need to be wired. The victim never receives any prize. Anytime you are asked to pay money in order to receive a cash prize, you need to be aware. 3. Secret Shopper ScamThis scam will generally originate through email or regular mail. The scam involves a seemingly legitimate check being mailed to the victim, giving directions for secretly shopping for an item. The check will be for more than the item will cost. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check into their checking account and wire a set amount of money back to the company. Shortly after the victim deposits the check and wires the money, the victims bank will declare that the check is counterfeit and the victim is responsible for the full amount withdrawn from the account. 4. Reshipping ScamThis scam involves the victim looking for a work from home job. The victim will be told that they are working for a logistics company (or similar). The victim is told that they will be paid monthly, usually a large amount and reimbursed for shipping supplies. The victim will be instructed to reship items that are delivered to victims address, usually out of the country. The victim is told that they will not be paid until the end of the second month. The victim continues to reship the items anticipating the large paycheck that will never show up. 5. Craigslist/Classified Ad Scam This scam involves the victim selling something via a classified ad. The victim will be contacted by an interested party. Usually the full asking price will be agreed upon and the purchaser will send a check to the seller. The check arrives and is for much more than the agreed upon price. The purchaser will re-contact the seller and state that it was a mistake, and will have the seller return the overage to the purchaser. The seller deposits the check and sends the overage back to the purchaser, at which time the sellers bank tells them the check is fraudulent. The seller is now responsible for the total amount withdrawn from the account. 6. Grandson/Granddaughter stuck overseas and needs money to get out of jail or pay for hospital bills calls grandma/grandpa to wire the money. 7. ATM/Waiter/Gas Pump skimming Small handheld device is used to scan your debit/credit card number. Then your credit card numbers are sent to another location, sometimes out of the country and used to make purchases. Your Safety Two Arrested After Woman Dies from Pepper Spray Two men were arrested for the death of a woman who unfortunately died from pepper spray. 20-year-old Ronnie Lanard Tyson and 21-year-old Kenyatta Simario Grant were caught by surveillance cameras in the early morning hours outside of an event at a cafe. Surveillance video showed Tyson spraying pepper spray in a mans face to distract him as Grant tried to yank the silver chain and medallion from his neck. The pepper spray drifted into the large crowd, and people began to run. As 28-year-old Kimberly Clarke inhaled the spray, she struggled to breathe, calling for help as she fled and falling to the ground. About 20 minutes later, other attendees realized she was still unconscious on the ground and called for help. Fire Rescue paramedics transported Clarke to the hospital in critical condition. She was said to have a heart condition and never regained consciousness. She died nine days later after the incident. Detectives initially released surveillance video that showed the robbery and both suspects running off camera. The robbery victim is seen on video retrieving his handgun from his car and running after them. He is then seen retreating after spotting an FHP trooper working an off-duty detail at the truck stop. A second surveillance video released by detectives showed Tyson at the truck stop convenience store about two hours before pepper spraying the crowd. Police put pictures up on the internet asking for assistance from the public to identify the suspects. They received multiple Crime Stoppers tips identifying Tyson. Their investigation later led them to Grant. Grant was tracked down and arrested, while Tyson turned himself in a few days after. They were both charged with felony murder. Both are being held without bond. Grant was arrested three times this year for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident, loitering and driving with a suspended license. Clarke is said to have been a native from Jamaica and received education in the U.S. with a degree in criminology. Tyson had been previously arrested for burglary and strong-arm robbery Ronnie Tyson Kenyatta Grant

Baby Brutally Beaten and Sent to Hospital Because Dad was on Spice Phoenix, AZPolice had received a call from a man identified as 29-year-old Jesse Martell Miller, who said, I just beat up my daughter. When police arrived at the home, Miller and his daughter were already taken to the hospital by the childs mother. At the hospital, police say Miller admitted to beating his 1-year-old daughter. The baby was badly beaten in the face with bruises, dried up blood in her nose, swollen lips, and was reported to be soaking wet. She was also bleeding from her brain. She is in the intensive-care unit and is in stable but critical condition.Millers wife told police that she was at work when she received a call from Miller who told her that he had smoked spice, an increasingly popular synthetic marijuana that is known to cause people to act extremely violently. He then said he beat his daughter. When Miller was questioned by police, he told them he did indeed smoke spice. He said he was smoking it in the bathroom while his baby was in front of a TV. He then said he sat down on the couch when he was done with his daughter. He said at one point, he went out of it describing that his soul left his body and he went to hell. He said when he came to his senses, he heard his child screaming and saw blood from her mouth. He tried to wash the blood off the baby using the bathtub. Miller said that he realized he caused the injuries to his child. Miller was arrested on one count of child abuse and is being held on $45,000 bond. OCTOBER, 2012 THE STAR C&J 3Bizarre Crimes Bizarre Crimeswho, what, when...huh? Other Unusual Crimes Across the Nation Man Accidentally Shoots Self During Home Invasion A man accidentally shot himself during a home invasion and was arrested. Police received a call from an individual who was shot inside a home. Officers responded and found a man identified as 34-year-old Leonard Denard Porter suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. During the investigation officers determined that the wounded individual was a suspect in this home invasion robbery along with two other accomplices, 31-yearold Johnny Acevedo Jr. and 30-year-old Audra Noel Steadman. According to reports, Porter is also facing charges from another home invasion investigation. The victim of the home invasion said Porter broke into her home and pointed a gun at her demanding money. She said when she told him she didnt have any, he put her on her stomach on the bed. During the struggle, Porters gun went off hitting him in his own head. Porter was arrested and charged with armed home invasion, armed robbery, and armed burglary. His other two accomplices were arrested and charged with the same charges. According to records, he has been arrested in 2002 for various cocainerelated charges and served about 18 months. Cross-Dressing Nurse Steals from the Elderly Police are looking for a suspect who cross-dresses as a nurse who stole thousands of dollars on credit cards he stole from elderly patients at numerous nursing homes. 29-year-old Meko Jerran Hartfield was said to have dressed as a female nurse to blend in with staff at a nursing home where he allegedly stole the credit card, social security card, and driver's license from a 92-year-old. He also stole a wallet from an 87year-old in another nursing home with his disguise. Police found surveillance footage of Hartfield making multiple transactions with the stolen cards. He was also caught spending up to $4,000 at a Target store using the credit card of the 87-year-old Police believed Hartfield to really be a woman at first, but later released that the suspect was actually a man after finding out it was a disguise. They let it be known that Hartfield wore wigs and medical scrub attire. Police are asking the public for any information on Hartfields whereabouts, including an unknown black male who was seen with him at the Target store. Hartfield is suspected of committing similar offenses throughout the country Man Uses 1-Year-Old Son as Shield Against Taser Houston,TX50-year-old Clifford French had been in an argument with his common-law wife at an apartment. French was said to have hit her and when police arrived, he did not cooperate. French continually did not show any signs of complying with police and refused to be arrested. One of the officers decided to pull out a Taser gun to shock Miller. Miller immediately reacted by holding his baby and using him as a shield. Police say it got to the point where the baby was choked as French tried to protect himself from anymore possible tasering. He eventually surrendered and was arrested. He will face a felony charge of child endangerment and an assault charge. Juvenile Jailer Offers 15-Year-Old Girl Candy for Sex Houston, TXRobert Emerson Robinson, 28, was a juvenile jailer and was seen on a surveillance camera going to the cell of a 15-year-old female when lights were turned off.

Robinson confessed to the crime and said he did make a mistake. He was arrested and charged with second-degree felony sexual assault of a child. He is free on $30,000 bond.

OCTOBER 20, 2012 THE STAR PR 2 Success ParkThere may be no more fitting name than Success Park. The new recreation space near the Edward Waters College campus shows the power of public-private partnership and the benefits of government working with business and community leaders. The half-acre park at the intersection of Pearce and Dot streets in the New Town Success Zone park includes a walking trail, playground equipment, benches, adult fitness equipment and passive green space. Further improvements will include additional trees and a picnic and pavilion area, provided by TD Bank. The park project began last summer and was completed in March 2012. Earlier this week, Mayor Alvin Brown joined Edward Waters College President Nat Glover and other community leaders for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. He commended President Glover for the colleges commitment to care for the park. That means the city will be able to increase public recreation space without increasing the taxpayer cost of ongoing maintenance. This is what happens when government works with business and community leaders. We all win. Progress is visible and we put Jacksonville first, said Mayor Brown. For more information visit COJ.net.

Considering their parents struggles with college debt, it comes as no surprise that Gen Z is eager to ensure they graduate with as little debt as possible. Among this group of young adults, 39 percent cited that paying for college was a top concern, while another 39 percent said they were also concerned about having a large student loan balance. The following tips are for families gearing up for college: 1. Calculate the costs While a quick online search can give families an idea of college expenses, predicting future costs can be a bit more challenging. There are a number of free online resources available that can help parents and teens estimate how much theyll need to save for college so they can get a solid plan in place. 2. Explore your savings options Parents and teens should work together to research college savings options like 529 college savings plans, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts and custodial accounts. Once they decide on a plan that will work for them, the saving can begin. 3. Turn talk into action Once a college savings plan is established, parents and teens should follow through on their planning and make a conscious effort to save.

OCTOBER 20, 2012 PREP RAP PR 3 Florida Ophthalmologists Warn Parents and Teens about the Dangers of Decorative Contact Lenses when Purchased Without a PrescriptionPopular Halloween products can lead to eye damage and vision loss JACKSONVILLE, Fla. As kids across the state shop for their Halloween costumes, the Florida Society of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Ophthalmology are warning Florida parents and teens about the dangers of non-prescription decorative contact lenses. Decorative contact lenses are increasingly popular to create elaborate costumes, offering blood drenched vampire eyes, glow-in-the-dark lizard eyes and more. Unfortunately, decorative contact lenses can also lead to real-life nightmares, including permanent eye damage and vision loss. One study found that wearing decorative contact lenses increased the risk for developing keratitis a potentially blinding infection that causes an ulcer on the eye by more than 16 times.[i] These patients were most often teenagers or young adults. All contact lenses require a prescription and proper fitting by an eye care professional such as an ophthalmologist an eye medical doctor. Even if someone has perfect vision, they need to get an eye exam and a prescription in order to wear any kind of contacts, including decorative contact lenses. Products that claim one size fits all or no need to see an eye specialist can mislead consumers and may be on the market illegally. Unlike corrective lenses, which most patients understand to require professional screening and fitting, decorative lenses are easily obtainable in costume shops and online, which leads people to believe that they are safe, said Charles B. Slonim, M.D., president of the Florida Society of Ophthalmology. Unfortunately, its not uncommon to see permanent eye damage and vision loss from over-the-counter cosmetic lenses. We discourage all consumers from wearing contact lenses obtained in beauty salons, novelty shops, or costume stores. In 2005, a federal law classified all contact lenses as medical devices and restricted their distribution to licensed eye care professionals. Illegal sale of contact lenses can result in civil penalties of up to $11,000 per violation. Additionally, some decorative lenses, such as trendy circle lenses, are not FDA-approved. Consumers should only buy decorative contact lenses from an eye care professional or a seller who asks for a prescription and sells FDAapproved products. To safely wear decorative contact lenses this Halloween or any time of year, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends following these guidelines: Get an eye exam from an eye care professional such as an ophthalmologist. Obtain a valid prescription that includes the brand name, lens measurements, and expiration date. Purchase the decorative contact lenses from a licensed eye care professional or an eye product retailer who asks for a prescription. Follow the directions for cleaning, disinfecting, and wearing the lenses. Never share contact lenses with another person. Get follow up exams by your eye care provider. To obtain a prescription for decorative contact lenses, an eye care professional will measure each eye to ensure proper fit. Contacts that are not fitted by an eye care professional may scratch the eye or cause blood vessels to grow into the cornea. An eye care professional will also provide contact lens care instructions. Contacts that are left in for too long or that are not properly cleaned and disinfected can significantly increase the risk of an eye infection. If you notice redness, swelling, excessive discharge, pain or discomfort from wearing contact lenses, remove the lenses and seek immediate medical attention from an ophthalmologist. Eye infections like keratitis can quickly become serious and cause blindness if left untreated. For more information on decorative contact lens safety or to find an Eye M.D., visit www.geteyesmart.org.
