The keynote speaker will be Ms. Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, who stands while suffering everyday as she remembers her son and read news information stating tha her sons killer is raising funds to defend his actions, based on aOu0"U{dtkpc"Hwnvqp."oqvjgt"qh"Vtc{xqpFlorida law that allows citizens to use weapons stating they are defending themselves. Trayvon was an unarmed teenager. Just two weeks ago in Jacksonville, another teen was killed and defendant is stating that he was standing his groundŽ even though Jordan did not have a gun and neither did the other teens in the car. There were no weapons found on the teens as they stopped to get gas and continued to listen to the music on the radio. Marissa Alexander is pictured above because she will be spending 20 years in jail after firing a gun in the wall in an effort to back up her husband who she said had been abusive. All of the others above, lost their lives either by a beating, stabbing or shooting. Now you understand why their family families will be attending the breakfast. Hurting Families was started by Linda Dayson who still suffers from a crime involving her son.

The breakfast begins at 10:00 a.m. Join Hurting Families \With Children In Crime, Inc. by attending this event while meeting these hurting families. Oprah Winfrey has been dethroned as the richest black woman in the world. The new leading lady is oil baroness Folorunsho Alakija from Nigeria, as reported by Huffington Post. While drilling oil has reportedly made the 61-year-old owner of FAMFA Oil Limited a very rich woman -she is estimated to be worth at least $3.2 billion -Alakija started her ascent to financial supremacy in fashion. Born into a wealthy family, Alakija studied fashion design in England back in the '80s and soon after founded the Nigerian clothing label Supreme Stitches. Her one-of-a-kind creations were worn by the who's who of African society, quickly making her thepremier fashion designer in the West African country. In fact, she has been called one of the "pioneers of Nigerian fashion" and stays connected to the industry through the Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria (FDAN). The well-heeled businesswoman and philanthropist made the switch to oil in 1993 and the rest is history. From the images we were able to dig up of Alakija, she is quite the fashion plate (read: eccentric dresser).

Kv‘u"Nkvvng"Oggejkg DECEMBER 8, 2012THE STARPAGE 3 Granddad went to the store with a then 3-year-old Lil Meechie in tow. Since he was just there to grab some essentials like milk and bread, he opted to save some time by not pushing a cart around the store. "That's not the way grandma does it," Lil Meechie informed him. "I know, dear, but granddaddy's way is OK, too," he replied. Leaving the store in the rain and without a cart, Granddaddy carried the bag of groceries, Lil Meechie, and the milk quickly to the car. Not wanting to set anything down on the wet ground, he set the jug of milk on top of the car, efficiently whisked open the car door with his now free hand, scooted the groceries in and set Lil Meechie into the back seat all in one swift motion. Then he hopped in himself. "That's not the way grandma does it," Lil Meechie informed him again. "Son, there's more than one way to do things," he replied patiently. "Granddaddy's way is OK, too." As they pulled out and headed down the street, he became aware of the scraping sound on the roof as the jug of milk slid down the length of the rooftop, bounced off the trunk of the car and splattered to the ground, sending a froth of white milk in every direction. In the millisecond he took to process his mistake, Lil Meechie looked at him, and in a most serious voice said, "That's NOT the way grandma does it!

PAGE 6 THE STAR DECEMBER 08, 2012 Purse Theft Arrested Along with Friend who Provided Ride A man was arrested for snatching a purse at a gas station. Another man was arrested for later providing a ride for the purse theft. Police responded to a call at 9:21 a.m. where a couple had stopped at a gas station to pump gas. The 80-year-old woman left her purse on the floor of the car and when the couple came back, she noticed her purse was stolen. Her husband, 76, told police that he saw a man acting suspiciously near their car and talking with a woman in a gold colored Buick SUV. He gave the police a description of the man and even the license tag number. The couple later also told police that one of their credit cards had been used at another gas station nearby about 20 minutes after the purse was stolen. Surveillance video were able to confirm the same Buick SUV at the other station where the card was used. Detectives reviewed the surveillance video of the first gas station and observed the man matching the description given by the couple. They looked at the woman, who the suspect was interacting with, enter the store to buy cigarettes. Detectives ran the tag number of her vehicle and located her address where they found the same Buick SUV from the gas station. They talked to the owners and found out that the woman was with a man who was also at the gas station. The man identified as Ryan Lashon Epting, 31, was said to have driven the vehicle. Epting at that time told detectives he was flagged down by a man named CharlesŽ who said he needed a ride to the hospital. He said he did not know his real name, address, or phone number and could not help detectives locate him. Epting did say that CharlesŽ usually hung out at the a recreation center to watch people play basketball. Detectives went to the center and showed surveillance photos to employees who identified 50-year-old Tony Curtis Goforth, also known as Pops.Ž The employee said Goforths son plays on a basketball team. When detectives identified Goforth as the man who stole the purse, Goforth said Epting picked him up that day to hang out. He said he was never at the gas station and did not steal the purse. Detectives located video surveillance from both gas stations that positively linked Goforth to the burglary and purse theft. Goforth also told detectives that he and Epting knew each other for months and that they usually hang out together to play basketball. Detectives searched Goforths cell phone and discovered several incoming and outgoing calls to and from Epting. Goforth was arrested along with Epting for failing to provide Goforths actual information and providing false information. Goforth was charged with burglary to a conveyance, grand theft, and fraudulent use of a credit card. remains on no bond due to his extensive criminal history and being a convicted felon.

Make sure that they return home promptly at appointed times. € Have your child play in a supervised area with friends you know. € Let your child know where you will be at all times and how to get in touch with you. € Keep a record of your childrens friends and their phone numbers in case your childs phone cannot be reached, if he/she has one. € Notice when anyone shows an unusual amount of interest in your child or gives him or her gifts. Ask your child why he or she is acting that way. € Make time every day to discuss the days events with your children. Encourage them to tell you about anything that makes them uncomfortable, or scares or confuses them. Listen to what they say and never underestimate their fears or concerns. Show them that you are always concerned about their safety and security. Effective communication is the most important factor in child safety. When Shopping or in a Public Place : € Have your children stay with you at all times. Tell them not to wander off, leave the store, or hide. Dont get distracted by the sights, sounds, and crowds when shopping during holidays. € Tell them to go to the nearest clerk or person with a nametag and ask for help if they become lost. Show these people to them when entering the store. € Accompany younger children to restrooms. € Never leave your child at a video arcade, movie theater, food court, toy store, or mall play area as a convenient babysitterŽ while you are shopping. Personnel in those areas are not there to watch children. € If you allow an older child to go to without you, have him or her go with a friend and set a time for them to return. € Be alert for any changes in your childs behavior. Look and listen for things that indicate something is troubling him or her. Children are often uncomfortable in disclosing disturbing events or feelings because they are concerned about your reactions to their problems. When they do talk about their problems be calm, compassionate, reassuring, and nonjudgmental as you work with them to resolve the problem. When Going to and from School : € Walk your child to and from school, and point out dangerous spots and safe places to go if he or she needs help. € Have your child walk or bike to and from school with a friend. There is safety in numbers. € If your child takes a bus to and from school, visit the bus stop with your child and make sure he or she learns the bus number. Have your child stay with a group while waiting for the bus. € Ask the school to notify you whenever your child is not in class. € Make sure that the school will not release your child to anyone but yourself or a person previously designated by you, and that the school will call you back to verify any call saying that some person will come to pick up him or her. Your Safety Man Uses Shovel to Attack Fireman Who Tries to Put out Fire Police responded to a fire call in the backyard of 44year-old Gregory Sean Turners home. When a firefighter walked around the house, Turner came out yelling profanities, and telling him to get off his property. The fire was about 6 to 8 feet in diameter and contained springs to a mattress, blinds, a ceiling fan and other home appliances. Turner was advised of the illegal burn and that a fire hose would be brought to extinguish the fire. The firefighter went back to get a smaller hose to extinguish the fire and when he returned he saw Turner putting in more items to the fire. Turner then grabbed a shovel and raised it over his head and began walking toward the firefighter in an aggressive manner. The firefighter, fearing he was going to be struck with the shovel, sprayed Turner with the hose knocking him to the ground. Turner got up and started swinging hitting the firefighter in the helmet with the shovel. The police were called and when they arrived, they saw Turner waving his arms, yelling, and walking in an aggressive manner. An officer had to use a taser to arrest Turner. Turner said that he started the fire and it was his. Turner was charged with aggravated battery on a firefighter with a deadly weapon, and preventing or obstructing extinguishment of a fire. This is his fifth booking and he remains in jail on $27,500 bond. Gregory Turner Woman Stabs Husband Six Times Police received a call at 3:45 p.m. in reference to a domestic battery. When police arrived, they talked to the husband of Tammy Ellen Chance, 29, who said they got into an argument and that she grabbed a 12-inch silver food skewer and stabbed him. He said he was then able to grab the skewer away from his wife, which he bent in half and threw in the bathtub. Chance then removed the skewer, straightened it out, and then followed her husband into the bedroom and stabbed him again. She was said to have left the home and he called the police. The husband had two puncture wounds on his right arm, three on his left arm, and one on his stomach. Police were notified to keep an eye out for Tammy Chance. Police left the home and shortly thereafter, Chance came back to the residence. When police returned, they talked to her and she said she hit her husband once with the skewer after he choked her. No signs of any physical injury to her neck were found. Chance was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon where she remains on no bond. Reports say that Tammy Chance is a convicted felon with three bookings.

E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.An Evening of Jazz with the Longineu Parsons Quartet Featuring Nat Adderley, Jr. I love jazz music the unpredictability of improvisation, the intricate rhythms that cause me to tap my feet, snap my fingers, grunt and testify with a resounding, YeahŽ. It is music that elevates my pulse, soothes my heart and soul, and keeps a perpetual smile on my face. Longineu Parsons on coronet (the horn previously owned by Nat Adderley, Sr.), his good friend Nat Adderley, Jr. on keyboard, Lawrence Bass ManŽ Buckner on bass, and Larry Wilson on drums presented exciting jazz at Jazzland Caf the Saturday of the Thanksgiving weekend. Ive known Longineu a very long time. Its interesting how you can know someone but not know everything about them. Growing up, I knew he was in the high school band, played the cornet. I dont remember him as a future world class musician and professor of music. I had an opportunity to ask him about the beginning of his career in music and to talk with Nat Adderley, Jr. about his unexpectedŽ career in R&B and pop music. In spite of a lifelong aptitude for science and math and the desire to pursue a respectableŽ career in research or medicine, Longineus burning passion was music. He played in his junior and senior high school bands. He would finger an imaginary horn while listening to music in his car. Although Longineu did not come from a musical family, music was always in his home, from jazz to classical, Duke Ellington to Rachmaninoff. On the weekends, his father, Longineu Sr., would play jazz records on full blast throughout the house. When the younger told his parents of the decision to study music instead of biology, they were very supportive. We knew thats what you were going to do all along, but we knew you would have to figure that out.Ž At the end of Longineus first year at FAMU, the Cannonball Adderly Quintet came to town for a concert. When he introduced himself to his idol, cornet/trumpet player Nat Adderley, Sr., the jazz man who would become his mentor said, Longineu! I know who you are. There cant be but two people named Longineu and thats you and your daddy!Ž Later, Adderley Sr. offered this bit of advice to his protge, Before you sign any recording contract, you call me and read it to me over the phone. A lawyer can tell you if its legal and binding. I can tell you if youre getting screwed or not.Ž The Nat Adderleys became Longineus extended family. As a testament to the mutual bond, Ann Adderley, Nat Sr.s widow, presented Longineu with the cornet that her husband played in the heyday of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet! The friendship with Nat Jr. naturally developed as a result of Longineus close relationship with his parents. Then, about three years ago, Longineu received an invitation to join a tribute band, formed by Nat Jr., which would perform the music of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet and Nat Adderley, Sr. Nat Adderley, Jr. One would think with a name like Adderley, its got to be Jazz. Right? Wrong! This son and nephew of jazz greats, Nat Adderley, Sr. and Julian CannonballŽ Adderley, respectively, whose first song, Im On My WayŽ, was recorded when he was 11 years old for the 1967 Cannonball Adderley Quintet album, Why Am I Treated So Bad! a student of piano who was 15 years old when he performed another of his tunes, The Price You Got to Pay to Be Free,Ž with his father and uncle at the Monterrey Jazz Festival, was destined to be the Adderley associated with R&B as the musical director, arranger, composer for R&B giant, Luther Vandross. Nat says he really liked pop music. He was a fan of the Beatles and Motown. He considered the study of Bacharach and David, the song writing team who wrote many of Dionne Warwicks greatest hits, his classical training in pop music. He played in pop bands through high school. His first professional job was with Valerie Simpson at the Troubadour in Los Angeles while he was still in high school. He met Luther while they were in high school. They formed a group, This is My Brother, writing and performing Black empowerment songs, rehearsing in the basement of the Apollo Theatre. They recorded a couple of albums that did not go anywhere. Adderley was living in Texas when Luther called about going back into the studio for a third time. Back in Texas, while in a grocery store with his one year old daughter, he heard the unmistakeable strains of Never Too MuchŽ over the stores piped-in radio system. It was the first time I heard myself on the radio. I just wanted to scream, Thats me, thats me! Ž Adderley admits that he expected the collaboration to last 3-4 years. Instead, he and Vandross made beautiful music for more than 20 years, until Luther was stricken by the stroke that would end his career. Additionally, Nat has worked with the likes of Ashford and Simpson, Aretha, Beyonce, Natalie Cole, Kirk Whalum, Mavis Staples, Gregory Hines, Miles Jaye, and many more. The Jazzland performance was dedicated to the memory of Nat Adderly, Sr.s birthday which was November 25, the day after the Jacksonville club date.

LOCAL THE STAR JacksonvilleFlorida Page 7 DECEMBER 8, 2012 By Marsha Dean Phelts If the Atlantic were to dry up, it would reveal a scattered pathway of human bones, African bones marking the various routes of the Middle Passage. But those who did survive multiplied, and have contributed to the creation of a new human society in the Americas and the Caribbean. It is a testament to the vitality and fortitude of the Africans that ten to twenty million lived through the heinous ordeal that many consider the greatest crime ever committed against a people in human history.Ž John Henrik Clarke This is the 2nd article in a series of 4 that tells of a project developed by Ann Chinn and a team of scholars and artists called Remembering Ancestors. The project is to have an International Day of Remembrance (As first designated by the United Nations, August 23, 1998.) for all who died while crossing the Atlantic as well as those who survived. While volumes have been written about the transatlantic Middle Passage Period where millions of blacks from the West Coast of Africa were traded like cargo to develop the American continents, no markers of remembrance have been placed at the ports our ancestors were bound for. This year, 2012, Ann Chinn, her husband, family, academic researchers as well as support from hundreds in local communities the group successfully achieved their goals and completed three (3 of 175) remembrance programs in Annapolis, Fells Point/Baltimore and Sotterly/Southern, Maryland at former slave ports. Inspiration for the marker project came after a conversation between Chinn and her friend, author, Toni Morrison about there being no memorial point in remembrance of our ancestors who came through the Middle Passage. At the time, in 1973, Chinn, a noted textile artist and her husband, distinguished journalist and National Geographic Magazines editorial staff member, Dr. Charles E. Cobb were residents of Washington, DC, traveled from one continent to another. Over the years their works brought them to Jacksonville where they now live in the Springfield community. And so it is here where Ann serves as Executive Director of the Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project and in our city where Dr. Charles Cobb is Senior Writer and Diplomatic Correspondent for AllAfrica.com, the leading online provider of news from and about Africa. Chinns interest in properly Remembering Ancestors never waned. Chinn was greatly assisted by fellow researcher, Dr. David Eltis of Emory University in identifying the slave ports and the names of slave ships. From Goree Island and Saint Louis du Senegal and other ports of the western coast of Africa, our ancestors were captured and sold as forced free labor source and inhumanely shipped to the Americas. Crossing the Middle Passage more than 2 million bodies were tossed unceremoniously and unmercifully into the ocean. Some were alive, some were gravely ill and others had died due to unlivable conditions. They were thrown overboard with no burial and forgotten. During a span of 4 centuries of slavery in America it is estimated that 54,000 slave trading voyages were made. Ships were crammed with blacks chained and layered together. As the ships were emptied of human cargo in the Americas they again were loaded with sugar, molasses, rum, lumber and other raw goods. In Europe these ships traded raw goods for the textiles, guns, beads and other manufactured goods that they would trade with Africa for more human cargo, Bound for America The Middle Passage Project needs our help and hopes that readers of The Florida Star will make support of this project a priority in your gift-giving this holiday season. For any donation over $100, the contributor will receive a limited edition commemorative poster of our first remembrance ceremonies at Fells Point in Baltimore, Maryland, on August 23, 2012. Your financial support will sponsor ceremonies and begin the process of placing markers at port sites to acknowledge this history. In the coming year ceremonies will be held at the following locations: FLORIDA Amelia Island, Pensacola, and St. Augustine VIRGINIA Jamestown, Norfolk, Rappahannock, and Yorktown U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS Christiansted, St. Croix Markers will be placed at 175 ports to permanently identify the ports where our ancestors were Bound for America More about Remembering Ancestors next week.

The show was hosted by Michael Tight MikeŽ Randolph of BET Comic View and HBO. B. Devine (R&B Sensation) and Shay Clemons (Up & Coming local Comedian) were also in the house. Reds performance was sold out, but that was no surprise this comedian is really doing his thing in Comedy as well as acting.

By MIKE BONTS Florida Sports Wire Northwestern will make its first appearance in the Gator Bowl where it will face Mississippi State at Noon ET on Jan. 1 on ESPN2. The Wildcats earn their 11th bowl berth, advancing to the postseason for the fifth straight time under coach Pat Fitzgerald. It will be the first meeting between Northwestern and Mississippi State and it is the Big Tens eighth all-time appearance in the bowl game. Mississippi State will be playing in its third consecutive postseason bowl for only the second time in school history, and the Bulldogs have won five straight bowl games dating back to 1999. "We're excited to return to the Gator Bowl for another New Year's Day experience," head coach Dan Mullen said. "This is a reward for our players after all their hard work this season and I know our coaches, players and fans will again have a great time in Jacksonville." Mississippi State defeated Michigan 52-14 in the 2011 Gator Bowl, the first traditional New Year's Day bowl appearance by a Bulldog team in more than a decade. This year's berth in the Gator Bowl will be the fifth traditional New Year's bowl in school history. FSU, UF BCS Bowl Bound Florida State (11-2; 7-1 ACC), ranked 12th in the final BCS standings, captured its 13th ACC Football title since joining the league in 1992. The Seminoles will face Northern Illinois in the Discover Orange Bowl. By capturing a share of the Big East Conference title and earning the league's Bowl Championship Series bid, the University of Louisville football team has received an invitation to play in the 79th annual Allstate Sugar Bowl against Florida on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. The Seminoles will be facing Northern Illinois, 12-1, and champions of the Mid-American Conference and ranked 15th in the final BCS Standings. Florida State is 3-5 in its previous eight Orange Bowl appearances but is 25-14-2 overall in 41 bowl games, a winning percentage of .634, the sixth-best winning percentage nationally among teams with 15 or more bowl appearances. Ironically, Northern Illinois head coach, Dave Doeren has been hired by FSUs Atlantic Division rival NC State, and will not coach in the bowl game. The ACC gridiron title is the Seminoles first in eight seasons, and its first berth in a BCS bowl game since claiming the inaugural ACC Football Championship Game in 2005. FSU, coached by Jimbo Fisher, has now posted a 30-10 record over the past three seasons and will be making its ninth appearance in the Discover Orange Bowl, last facing Penn State in the 2006 classic, a triple overtime loss to Penn State. Mississippi State defeated Michigan 52-14 in the 2011 Gator Bowl The Gators (11-1) will be making their 22nd-straight bowl appearance, which ranks first in the SEC and second nationally. This will also be Florida's 19th January Bowl game since 1993, the highest total in the country. The Cardinals (10-2, 5-2 BIG EAST) finished the regular season ranked 18th in the USA Today Coaches Poll and 22nd in the Associated Press Poll. In its last game, Louisville came from behind to post a 20-17 victory at Rutgers and ensure the Cardinals their second-straight BIG EAST title. With the win, Louisville posted its fourth double-digit win total in school history.

Trayvon was an unarmed teenager. Just two weeks ago in Jacksonville, another teen was killed and defendant is stating that he was standing his ground even though Jordan did not have a gun and neither did the other teens in the car. There were no weapons found on the teens as they stopped to get gas and continued to listen to the music on the radio. Marissa Alexander is pictured above because she will be spending 20 years in jail after firing a gun in the wall in an effort to back up her husband who she said had been abusive. All of the others above, lost their lives either by a beating, stabbing or shooting. Now you understand why their family families will be attending the breakfast. Hurting Families was started by Linda Dayson who still suffers from a crime involving her son.

Oprah Winfrey has been dethroned as the richest black woman in the world. The new leading lady is oil baroness Folorunsho Alakija from Nigeria, as reported by Huffington Post. While drilling oil has reportedly made the 61-year-old owner of FAMFA Oil Limited a very rich woman -she is estimated to be worth at least $3.2 billion -Alakija started her ascent to financial supremacy in fashion. Born into a wealthy family, Alakija studied fashion design in England back in the '80s and soon after founded the Nigerian clothing label Supreme Stitches. Her one-of-a-kind creations were worn by the who's who of African society, quickly making her thepremier fashion designer in the West African country. In fact, she has been called one of the "pioneers of Nigerian fashion" and stays connected to the industry through the Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria (FDAN). The well-heeled businesswoman and philanthropist made the switch to oil in 1993 and the rest is history. From the images we were able to dig up of Alakija, she is quite the fashion plate (read: eccentric dresser).

Kvu"Nkvvng"Oggejkg DECEMBER 8, 2012 THE STAR PAGE 3 Granddad went to the store with a then 3-year-old Lil Meechie in tow. Since he was just there to grab some essentials like milk and bread, he opted to save some time by not pushing a cart around the store. "That's not the way grandma does it," Lil Meechie informed him. "I know, dear, but granddaddy's way is OK, too," he replied. Leaving the store in the rain and without a cart, Granddaddy carried the bag of groceries, Lil Meechie, and the milk quickly to the car. Not wanting to set anything down on the wet ground, he set the jug of milk on top of the car, efficiently whisked open the car door with his now free hand, scooted the groceries in and set Lil Meechie into the back seat all in one swift motion. Then he hopped in himself. "That's not the way grandma does it," Lil Meechie informed him again. "Son, there's more than one way to do things," he replied patiently. "Granddaddy's way is OK, too." As they pulled out and headed down the street, he became aware of the scraping sound on the roof as the jug of milk slid down the length of the rooftop, bounced off the trunk of the car and splattered to the ground, sending a froth of white milk in every direction. In the millisecond he took to process his mistake, Lil Meechie looked at him, and in a most serious voice said, "That's NOT the way grandma does it!

PAGE 6 THE STAR DECEMBER 08, 2012 Purse Theft Arrested Along with Friend who Provided Ride A man was arrested for snatching a purse at a gas station. Another man was arrested for later providing a ride for the purse theft. Police responded to a call at 9:21 a.m. where a couple had stopped at a gas station to pump gas. The 80-year-old woman left her purse on the floor of the car and when the couple came back, she noticed her purse was stolen. Her husband, 76, told police that he saw a man acting suspiciously near their car and talking with a woman in a gold colored Buick SUV. He gave the police a description of the man and even the license tag number. The couple later also told police that one of their credit cards had been used at another gas station nearby about 20 minutes after the purse was stolen. Surveillance video were able to confirm the same Buick SUV at the other station where the card was used. Detectives reviewed the surveillance video of the first gas station and observed the man matching the description given by the couple. They looked at the woman, who the suspect was interacting with, enter the store to buy cigarettes. Detectives ran the tag number of her vehicle and located her address where they found the same Buick SUV from the gas station. They talked to the owners and found out that the woman was with a man who was also at the gas station. The man identified as Ryan Lashon Epting, 31, was said to have driven the vehicle. Epting at that time told detectives he was flagged down by a man named Charles who said he needed a ride to the hospital. He said he did not know his real name, address, or phone number and could not help detectives locate him. Epting did say that Charles usually hung out at the a recreation center to watch people play basketball. Detectives went to the center and showed surveillance photos to employees who identified 50-year-old Tony Curtis Goforth, also known as Pops. The employee said Goforths son plays on a basketball team. When detectives identified Goforth as the man who stole the purse, Goforth said Epting picked him up that day to hang out. He said he was never at the gas station and did not steal the purse. Detectives located video surveillance from both gas stations that positively linked Goforth to the burglary and purse theft. Goforth also told detectives that he and Epting knew each other for months and that they usually hang out together to play basketball. Detectives searched Goforths cell phone and discovered several incoming and outgoing calls to and from Epting. Goforth was arrested along with Epting for failing to provide Goforths actual information and providing false information. Goforth was charged with burglary to a conveyance, grand theft, and fraudulent use of a credit card. remains on no bond due to his extensive criminal history and being a convicted felon.

Make sure that they return home promptly at appointed times. Have your child play in a supervised area with friends you know. Let your child know where you will be at all times and how to get in touch with you. Keep a record of your childrens friends and their phone numbers in case your childs phone cannot be reached, if he/she has one. Notice when anyone shows an unusual amount of interest in your child or gives him or her gifts. Ask your child why he or she is acting that way. Make time every day to discuss the days events with your children. Encourage them to tell you about anything that makes them uncomfortable, or scares or confuses them. Listen to what they say and never underestimate their fears or concerns. Show them that you are always concerned about their safety and security. Effective communication is the most important factor in child safety. When Shopping or in a Public Place : Have your children stay with you at all times. Tell them not to wander off, leave the store, or hide. Dont get distracted by the sights, sounds, and crowds when shopping during holidays. Tell them to go to the nearest clerk or person with a nametag and ask for help if they become lost. Show these people to them when entering the store. Accompany younger children to restrooms. Never leave your child at a video arcade, movie theater, food court, toy store, or mall play area as a convenient babysitter while you are shopping. Personnel in those areas are not there to watch children. If you allow an older child to go to without you, have him or her go with a friend and set a time for them to return. Be alert for any changes in your childs behavior. Look and listen for things that indicate something is troubling him or her. Children are often uncomfortable in disclosing disturbing events or feelings because they are concerned about your reactions to their problems. When they do talk about their problems be calm, compassionate, reassuring, and nonjudgmental as you work with them to resolve the problem. When Going to and from School : Walk your child to and from school, and point out dangerous spots and safe places to go if he or she needs help. Have your child walk or bike to and from school with a friend. There is safety in numbers. If your child takes a bus to and from school, visit the bus stop with your child and make sure he or she learns the bus number. Have your child stay with a group while waiting for the bus. Ask the school to notify you whenever your child is not in class. Make sure that the school will not release your child to anyone but yourself or a person previously designated by you, and that the school will call you back to verify any call saying that some person will come to pick up him or her. Your Safety Man Uses Shovel to Attack Fireman Who Tries to Put out Fire Police responded to a fire call in the backyard of 44year-old Gregory Sean Turners home. When a firefighter walked around the house, Turner came out yelling profanities, and telling him to get off his property. The fire was about 6 to 8 feet in diameter and contained springs to a mattress, blinds, a ceiling fan and other home appliances. Turner was advised of the illegal burn and that a fire hose would be brought to extinguish the fire. The firefighter went back to get a smaller hose to extinguish the fire and when he returned he saw Turner putting in more items to the fire. Turner then grabbed a shovel and raised it over his head and began walking toward the firefighter in an aggressive manner. The firefighter, fearing he was going to be struck with the shovel, sprayed Turner with the hose knocking him to the ground. Turner got up and started swinging hitting the firefighter in the helmet with the shovel. The police were called and when they arrived, they saw Turner waving his arms, yelling, and walking in an aggressive manner. An officer had to use a taser to arrest Turner. Turner said that he started the fire and it was his. Turner was charged with aggravated battery on a firefighter with a deadly weapon, and preventing or obstructing extinguishment of a fire. This is his fifth booking and he remains in jail on $27,500 bond. Gregory Turner Woman Stabs Husband Six Times Police received a call at 3:45 p.m. in reference to a domestic battery. When police arrived, they talked to the husband of Tammy Ellen Chance, 29, who said they got into an argument and that she grabbed a 12-inch silver food skewer and stabbed him. He said he was then able to grab the skewer away from his wife, which he bent in half and threw in the bathtub. Chance then removed the skewer, straightened it out, and then followed her husband into the bedroom and stabbed him again. She was said to have left the home and he called the police. The husband had two puncture wounds on his right arm, three on his left arm, and one on his stomach. Police were notified to keep an eye out for Tammy Chance. Police left the home and shortly thereafter, Chance came back to the residence. When police returned, they talked to her and she said she hit her husband once with the skewer after he choked her. No signs of any physical injury to her neck were found. Chance was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon where she remains on no bond. Reports say that Tammy Chance is a convicted felon with three bookings. Man Gets Chased and Arrested After Climbing Through Hotel Window A couple and their 4-year-old son were at a hotel and around 3 a.m., a man identified as Eric Sydnor Theorgood, 44, climbed up the balcony and entered the room. The couple woke up and saw Theorgood with a white cloth over his head. According to reports, the couple forced him back out over the balcony and called 911. When police arrived, they found a trail of items that were thrown away, including a pillowcase with eyeholes. The blood on the pillowcase was examined and matched Theorgood. When Theorgood saw himself on the news, he called police saying he had no involvement in the breakin. When he was told about the match, he later called the police again saying he had intended to play joke on his friends and ended up in the wrong room. When asked, he was not able to provide names of his friends. Theorgood was arrested and awaits trial. Tammy Chance Eric Theorgood

E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.An Evening of Jazz with the Longineu Parsons Quartet Featuring Nat Adderley, Jr. I love jazz music the unpredictability of improvisation, the intricate rhythms that cause me to tap my feet, snap my fingers, grunt and testify with a resounding, Yeah. It is music that elevates my pulse, soothes my heart and soul, and keeps a perpetual smile on my face. Longineu Parsons on coronet (the horn previously owned by Nat Adderley, Sr.), his good friend Nat Adderley, Jr. on keyboard, Lawrence Bass Man Buckner on bass, and Larry Wilson on drums presented exciting jazz at Jazzland Caf the Saturday of the Thanksgiving weekend. Ive known Longineu a very long time. Its interesting how you can know someone but not know everything about them. Growing up, I knew he was in the high school band, played the cornet. I dont remember him as a future world class musician and professor of music. I had an opportunity to ask him about the beginning of his career in music and to talk with Nat Adderley, Jr. about his unexpected career in R&B and pop music. In spite of a lifelong aptitude for science and math and the desire to pursue a respectable career in research or medicine, Longineus burning passion was music. He played in his junior and senior high school bands. He would finger an imaginary horn while listening to music in his car. Although Longineu did not come from a musical family, music was always in his home, from jazz to classical, Duke Ellington to Rachmaninoff. On the weekends, his father, Longineu Sr., would play jazz records on full blast throughout the house. When the younger told his parents of the decision to study music instead of biology, they were very supportive. We knew thats what you were going to do all along, but we knew you would have to figure that out. At the end of Longineus first year at FAMU, the Cannonball Adderly Quintet came to town for a concert. When he introduced himself to his idol, cornet/trumpet player Nat Adderley, Sr., the jazz man who would become his mentor said, Longineu! I know who you are. There cant be but two people named Longineu and thats you and your daddy! Later, Adderley Sr. offered this bit of advice to his protge, Before you sign any recording contract, you call me and read it to me over the phone. A lawyer can tell you if its legal and binding. I can tell you if youre getting screwed or not. The Nat Adderleys became Longineus extended family. As a testament to the mutual bond, Ann Adderley, Nat Sr.s widow, presented Longineu with the cornet that her husband played in the heyday of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet! The friendship with Nat Jr. naturally developed as a result of Longineus close relationship with his parents. Then, about three years ago, Longineu received an invitation to join a tribute band, formed by Nat Jr., which would perform the music of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet and Nat Adderley, Sr. Nat Adderley, Jr. One would think with a name like Adderley, its got to be Jazz. Right? Wrong! This son and nephew of jazz greats, Nat Adderley, Sr. and Julian Cannonball Adderley, respectively, whose first song, Im On My Way, was recorded when he was 11 years old for the 1967 Cannonball Adderley Quintet album, Why Am I Treated So Bad!, a student of piano who was 15 years old when he performed another of his tunes, The Price You Got to Pay to Be Free, with his father and uncle at the Monterrey Jazz Festival, was destined to be the Adderley associated with R&B as the musical director, arranger, composer for R&B giant, Luther Vandross. Nat says he really liked pop music. He was a fan of the Beatles and Motown. He considered the study of Bacharach and David, the song writing team who wrote many of Dionne Warwicks greatest hits, his classical training in pop music. He played in pop bands through high school. His first professional job was with Valerie Simpson at the Troubadour in Los Angeles while he was still in high school. He met Luther while they were in high school. They formed a group, This is My Brother, writing and performing Black empowerment songs, rehearsing in the basement of the Apollo Theatre. They recorded a couple of albums that did not go anywhere. Adderley was living in Texas when Luther called about going back into the studio for a third time. Back in Texas, while in a grocery store with his one year old daughter, he heard the unmistakeable strains of Never Too Much over the stores piped-in radio system. It was the first time I heard myself on the radio. I just wanted to scream, Thats me, thats me! Adderley admits that he expected the collaboration to last 3-4 years. Instead, he and Vandross made beautiful music for more than 20 years, until Luther was stricken by the stroke that would end his career. Additionally, Nat has worked with the likes of Ashford and Simpson, Aretha, Beyonce, Natalie Cole, Kirk Whalum, Mavis Staples, Gregory Hines, Miles Jaye, and many more. The Jazzland performance was dedicated to the memory of Nat Adderly, Sr.s birthday which was November 25, the day after the Jacksonville club date.

LOCAL THE STAR JacksonvilleFlorida Page 7 DECEMBER 8, 2012 By Marsha Dean Phelts If the Atlantic were to dry up, it would reveal a scattered pathway of human bones, African bones marking the various routes of the Middle Passage. But those who did survive multiplied, and have contributed to the creation of a new human society in the Americas and the Caribbean. It is a testament to the vitality and fortitude of the Africans that ten to twenty million lived through the heinous ordeal that many consider the greatest crime ever committed against a people in human history. John Henrik Clarke This is the 2nd article in a series of 4 that tells of a project developed by Ann Chinn and a team of scholars and artists called Remembering Ancestors. The project is to have an International Day of Remembrance (As first designated by the United Nations, August 23, 1998.) for all who died while crossing the Atlantic as well as those who survived. While volumes have been written about the transatlantic Middle Passage Period where millions of blacks from the West Coast of Africa were traded like cargo to develop the American continents, no markers of remembrance have been placed at the ports our ancestors were bound for. This year, 2012, Ann Chinn, her husband, family, academic researchers as well as support from hundreds in local communities the group successfully achieved their goals and completed three (3 of 175) remembrance programs in Annapolis, Fells Point/Baltimore and Sotterly/Southern, Maryland at former slave ports. Inspiration for the marker project came after a conversation between Chinn and her friend, author, Toni Morrison about there being no memorial point in remembrance of our ancestors who came through the Middle Passage. At the time, in 1973, Chinn, a noted textile artist and her husband, distinguished journalist and National Geographic Magazines editorial staff member, Dr. Charles E. Cobb were residents of Washington, DC, traveled from one continent to another. Over the years their works brought them to Jacksonville where they now live in the Springfield community. And so it is here where Ann serves as Executive Director of the Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project and in our city where Dr. Charles Cobb is Senior Writer and Diplomatic Correspondent for AllAfrica.com, the leading online provider of news from and about Africa. Chinns interest in properly Remembering Ancestors never waned. Chinn was greatly assisted by fellow researcher, Dr. David Eltis of Emory University in identifying the slave ports and the names of slave ships. From Goree Island and Saint Louis du Senegal and other ports of the western coast of Africa, our ancestors were captured and sold as forced free labor source and inhumanely shipped to the Americas. Crossing the Middle Passage more than 2 million bodies were tossed unceremoniously and unmercifully into the ocean. Some were alive, some were gravely ill and others had died due to unlivable conditions. They were thrown overboard with no burial and forgotten. During a span of 4 centuries of slavery in America it is estimated that 54,000 slave trading voyages were made. Ships were crammed with blacks chained and layered together. As the ships were emptied of human cargo in the Americas they again were loaded with sugar, molasses, rum, lumber and other raw goods. In Europe these ships traded raw goods for the textiles, guns, beads and other manufactured goods that they would trade with Africa for more human cargo, Bound for America The Middle Passage Project needs our help and hopes that readers of The Florida Star will make support of this project a priority in your gift-giving this holiday season. For any donation over $100, the contributor will receive a limited edition commemorative poster of our first remembrance ceremonies at Fells Point in Baltimore, Maryland, on August 23, 2012. Your financial support will sponsor ceremonies and begin the process of placing markers at port sites to acknowledge this history. In the coming year ceremonies will be held at the following locations: FLORIDA Amelia Island, Pensacola, and St. Augustine VIRGINIA Jamestown, Norfolk, Rappahannock, and Yorktown U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS Christiansted, St. Croix Markers will be placed at 175 ports to permanently identify the ports where our ancestors were Bound for America More about Remembering Ancestors next week.

Entertainment By Arthia Nixon, for Reign Fall Media Media Group ATLANTA, GEORGIA Teen heartthrob and hit maker Jacob Latimore is following in the footsteps of Justin Bieber by becoming the latest male celebrity capitalizing on catering to his legion of female fans. On Wednesday, Reign Fall Media Group officially announced that the prince of R&B will be teaming with teen entrepreneurs, Kenedi and Treasure Bishop on their self-titled cosmetics line, which includes lip gloss, nail polish and eye shadows. The I Like Em All and Nothing On Me singer will be launching the label during a teen celebrity holiday party set for December 16, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia, in conjunction with Reign Fall Media, Crown World Entertainment, Jacobs Ink and Jacobs Jewels. Featured will be pint-sized DJ prodigy, The Real DJ Face. The highly anticipated event which takes place at the 595 North Lounge is being branded as the ultimate bash to close out 2012 with the children of some of Atlantas high profile celebrities and major media outlets in attendance. The Bishop sisters, who are a fixture on Atlantas social scene, have been working for several months to produce a youthfully appealing line, agree that Latimore is the perfect face for their product. We worked with JaIshe Cosmetics to bring our dream of owning our own cosmetics line to fruition, says Kenedi, who recently celebrated her sweet sixteenth birthday. Our line is flirty, fun, affordable, fashionable, long lasting and comes in a variety of colors. Its something that we wear and weve been getting a lot of positive feedback from. We knew that Jacob Latimore was the perfect person to carry our brand because hes just hot and his fans know that he is all about giving them the best. Justin Bieber proved that even male celebrities can have their names and faces attached to products used by females, added her 17 year-old sister Treasure.

Sandy Neal Freelance Photojournalist Photo Credit: Kylan Alvin Photography Focused on Comedy hosted First Comedy Sunday at Skyline Sports Bar and the headliner this month is Comedian/Actor and Writer Red Grant of BET Comic View, Showtime, Katt Williams Pimp Chronicles, Def Comedy Jam and a host of other events from the east to the west coast. The show was hosted by Michael Tight Mike Randolph of BET Comic View and HBO. B. Devine (R&B Sensation) and Shay Clemons (Up & Coming local Comedian) were also in the house. Reds performance was sold out, but that was no surprise this comedian is really doing his thing in Comedy as well as acting. The crowd loved his jokes as well as his signature laugh and infectious smile, ladies those dimples are eye catching. His jokes about everyday life such as him meeting celebrities himself and how he can hardly contain himself is simply side splitting to say the least. This Washington D.C. native has his own production company which he produces videos and his most popular DVD to date Family Reunion which he stars in himself. He also has his own non-profit organization, Dont Shoot Guns, Shoot Cameras which is a huge success in deterring juvenile crime as has been adopted and 13 schools in the D.C. area. I wish Red Grant well in all of his endeavors because he is definitely About That Life. Check him out on YouTube Red Grant aka Lemon Drop and the YouTube video Lemon Drop vs Chocolate Drop ft. Kevin Hart totally hilarious.

By MIKE BONTS Florida Sports Wire Northwestern will make its first appearance in the Gator Bowl where it will face Mississippi State at Noon ET on Jan. 1 on ESPN2. The Wildcats earn their 11th bowl berth, advancing to the postseason for the fifth straight time under coach Pat Fitzgerald. It will be the first meeting between Northwestern and Mississippi State and it is the Big Tens eighth all-time appearance in the bowl game. Mississippi State will be playing in its third consecutive postseason bowl for only the second time in school history, and the Bulldogs have won five straight bowl games dating back to 1999. "We're excited to return to the Gator Bowl for another New Year's Day experience," head coach Dan Mullen said. "This is a reward for our players after all their hard work this season and I know our coaches, players and fans will again have a great time in Jacksonville." Mississippi State defeated Michigan 52-14 in the 2011 Gator Bowl, the first traditional New Year's Day bowl appearance by a Bulldog team in more than a decade. This year's berth in the Gator Bowl will be the fifth traditional New Year's bowl in school history. FSU, UF BCS Bowl Bound Florida State (11-2; 7-1 ACC), ranked 12th in the final BCS standings, captured its 13th ACC Football title since joining the league in 1992. The Seminoles will face Northern Illinois in the Discover Orange Bowl. By capturing a share of the Big East Conference title and earning the league's Bowl Championship Series bid, the University of Louisville football team has received an invitation to play in the 79th annual Allstate Sugar Bowl against Florida on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. The Seminoles will be facing Northern Illinois, 12-1, and champions of the Mid-American Conference and ranked 15th in the final BCS Standings. Florida State is 3-5 in its previous eight Orange Bowl appearances but is 25-14-2 overall in 41 bowl games, a winning percentage of .634, the sixth-best winning percentage nationally among teams with 15 or more bowl appearances. Ironically, Northern Illinois head coach, Dave Doeren has been hired by FSUs Atlantic Division rival NC State, and will not coach in the bowl game. The ACC gridiron title is the Seminoles first in eight seasons, and its first berth in a BCS bowl game since claiming the inaugural ACC Football Championship Game in 2005. FSU, coached by Jimbo Fisher, has now posted a 30-10 record over the past three seasons and will be making its ninth appearance in the Discover Orange Bowl, last facing Penn State in the 2006 classic, a triple overtime loss to Penn State. Mississippi State defeated Michigan 52-14 in the 2011 Gator Bowl The Gators (11-1) will be making their 22nd-straight bowl appearance, which ranks first in the SEC and second nationally. This will also be Florida's 19th January Bowl game since 1993, the highest total in the country. The Cardinals (10-2, 5-2 BIG EAST) finished the regular season ranked 18th in the USA Today Coaches Poll and 22nd in the Associated Press Poll. In its last game, Louisville came from behind to post a 20-17 victory at Rutgers and ensure the Cardinals their second-straight BIG EAST title. With the win, Louisville posted its fourth double-digit win total in school history.
