Mayor Alvin Browns $11 million reinvestment fund to promote Downtown revitalization and citywide job growth is now official. The plan calls for $9 million to leverage private dollars for Downtown improvement, and an additional $2 million is slated for citywide economic expansion. The investments result from a successful round of debt refinancing at the direction of the Brown Administration. The savings provide an opportunity for Jacksonville to invest in its future without taking on additional debt, using reserves or impacting the citys solid AA+ bond rating. The refinancing provides $11 million for the 2012-13 fiscal year with additional savings in future years. The reinvestment strategy represents a tremendous chance for Jacksonville to become more vibrant and competitive at a time when cities all over America are competing for an edge,Ž said Mayor Brown. The legislation Im signing today empowers us … with careful planning, accountability and City Council oversight … to advance our city.Ž A host of elected officials, business leaders and Downtown advocates were at City Hall Wednesday to support the mayor as he signed the reinvestment legislation (2013-89).

By Arthia Nixon Florida/Georgia Star An unimaginable crime which left a 13 month-old infant dead, a mother wounded and local police seeking suspects as young as ten and 13 years-old sent shock waves through the coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia on Thursday morning. By Thursday afternoon Brunswick Police Department had offered a $10,000.00 Reward (from the departments Drug Seizure Account) for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for this horrific act. Public Information Officer Todd Rhodes spoke with our media house and stated that the unified efforts of the communitys law enforcement departments hope to resolve this crime as soon as possibleŽ. We are encouraging the public to come forward with any information they may have in this horrific crime,Ž he stated.

Rudolph Porter, on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. the Rev. Dr. Booker T. rose, Jr., pastor of Youngs Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Douglas, Georgia will serve as the presiding pastor of the Anniversary Service. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Rev. Porter grew up in the urban community of Durkeeville. After graduating from William M. Raines High School in 1969, he matriculated to Bethune-Cookman College in Daytona Beach, Florida. While at Bethune-Cookman, his musical interest and talents earned him the distinction of serving as President/Section Leader of the Concert Chorale. In 1973, he earned his B.S. Degree in Psychology from Bethune-Cookman College, graduating Cum Laude. Upon graduation, he was led to relocate to Anderson, Indiana, where he experienced a twenty-six year professional career with the Delco Remy Division of General Motors in the areas of manufacturing, supervision, engineering, marketing, customer service, and warranty administration. In 1988, he was appointed Deputy Mayor to the City of Anderson. As a result of that appointment, he birthed his outstanding career in public service. In 1999, Rev. Porter relocated to Douglas, Georgia, continuing his extensive work in public service and community involvement. He views all of his previous appointments and experiences, however, as stepping stones which have served to complement his special calling to preach the gospel and to lead the least, the last and the lost to Christ.Ž At the very onset of his pastorate at Shiloh, Rev. Porter stressed a theme that has continued to resonate throughout his first year: Let all things be done decently and in order.Ž (1 Corinthians 14: 40) He has also continually emphasized that loving and forgiving one another is a heart condition.Ž To the delight of his members, he does not just preach love; he practices what he preaches. During his first year, Shiloh was blessed to receive several new members, in addition to the restoration of members who heard about this new pastors desire for them to come back home and receive showers of love and blessings. Prior to being called to Shiloh, Rev. Porter served as Pastor of the Irvin Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Valdosta, Georgia and was Vice-Chairman of the Douglas District Union, which is comprised of thirteen churches. In addition to proudly and lovingly serving as Shilohs pastor, Rev. Porter serves as an Education Counselor at Coffee Correctional Facility in Nicholls, Georgia. He is married to Sonya White Porter, and they are the proud prents of three children and three grandchildren.

The story of Adam and Eve was being carefully explained in the children's Sunday School class at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church one Sunday morning. Following the story, all of the children were asked to draw some picture that would illustrate the story. Lil Meechie was the first one to finish and took his picture to Mother Mccoy. She stared at the picture because Demetrious had drawn a picture of a car with three people in it. Behind the wheel was a man and in the back seat, a man and a woman. Mother McCoy was still bewildered as to how this illustrated the lesson of Adam and Eve. But Lil Meechie was prompt with his explanation. "This was easy, it's God driving Adam and Eve out of the garden! MARCH 23, 2013THE STARPAGE 3 KV‘U"NKVVNG"OGGEJKG By Vincent Jacobbi Were all looking for ways to save money these days.

AARP helps you and your family save real money. In March, AARP Florida volunteer radio hosts Billie Holmes and Melvin Wooden will interview AARP Tax-aide volunteer Barbara Rodon of Jacksonville as part of their twicemonthly radio interview show, News You Can Use from AARP.Ž Rodon and hundreds of other Tax-aide volunteers offer seniors free tax preparation help, as part of AARP Tax-Aide, the nations largest free volunteerrun tax assistance and preparation program. All AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified each year to ensure they know about and understand the most current updates to the U.S. Tax Code. Also, hosts Holmes and Wooden will fill you in on the latest information regarding plans in Washington that could cut thousands of dollars out of your future Social Security or veterans benefits, by changing the formula used to calculate the annual cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA). The changes may seem minor, but they could force $129 billion in cuts over the next ten years that would decrease important benefits for military veterans and seniors. AARP experts will explain how potential changes to the cost of living adjustment may affect African-American seniors and their loved ones, and older people of all backgrounds.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a mother (white female, of Brunswick, Ga.) and her infant son were both victims of gun shots. Police stated the mother sustained a nonlife threatening gunshot wound and was transported to the Southeast Georgia Health System (Brunswick Campus) for further treatment. Sadly, her son succumbed to his injuries. What makes the crime even more tragic is the age of the alleged perpetrators. One of the suspects is a black male, believed to be aged 13-15, approximately 57Ž … 59Ž tall, slender build, with curly hair who was wearing a red shirt,Ž stated Rhodes. The other suspect is a black male, short in stature, possibly between the ages of 10 … 12 yrs old.Ž We are urging the public to please contact the Brunswick Police Departments Silent Witness line at (912)-267-5516, or the Glynn County Police Department Silent Witness line at (912) 264-1333,Ž he added. Information can also be sent to bpdtips@brunswickpolice.org.Ž Chief Tobe C.

By twelfth grade, our children score lower on math and science tests than most other kids in the world! The problem for our future, is that we are not only learning at a slower pace, we are facing financial handicaps that will place us at the bottom globally in the areas we need most, for our global protection. How can we fight off war weapons without similar or equal knowledge? We have come this far because we excelled in knowledge but, at the rate we are going, such will no longer be the case, and we are not talking about twenty years from now. Rev. Jesse Jackson, in his Rainbow PUSH Coalition this week said Morehouse College, one of the most distinguished historically black colleges -with graduates like Dr. Martin L\uther King, Jr., literally shut down for spring break this week as its 2,000 students took their break because there was not enough money to pay faculty and staff as the school struggles to balance its books. Last week, the Washington Times reported that it is possible that HBCUs around the country are considering a law suit against the administration for allowing the changes in student loan standards that have had an adverse effect on the minority population. One student, according to the Washington Times, said that the loan standard changes left him devasted mid-semester. He said he did not get an email or anything. It just happened. I was in the middle of the semester making good grades and everything, and I was forced to leave.Ž The modifications to loan standards have nothing to do with the budget sequester. The changes were implemented last summer. PLUS loans are important because they allow parents to borrow up to the full cost of attendance for any university. The adminstration said the changes were made to match industry standards for getting other types of loans. However, due to differences in wealth levels, African Americans are often left behind. The average debt level for students who attend HBCUs is $32,000, which is very stiff for the African American population. Rising college costs and declining federal and state support have pushed more costs onto students and their parents. Advanced education or training is increasingly imperative and unaffordable. Rev. Jackson says that we need a national commission to review the rising costs of and the declining support for colleges and advanced training programs. Two weeks ago, the Florida Star published an open letter. This week, they received an update stating that on April 6, 2007, an investor group led by J.C. Flowers signed an agreement to purchase Sallie Mae for $25 billion. The deal fell trough in September 2007. SallIe Mae subsequently began legal action only to drop it in January 2008 upon completion of a $31 billion funding round with new investors. Albert Lord, CEO of Sallie Mae announced his retirement effective December 31, 2013. So, the open letter echos, GET RID OF SALLIE MAE.

The most important living memorial for Trayvon Martin, his family, and every black youth in Florida and across the country is for the church to use its extraordinary power to overturn and kill the Stand Your Ground Law.

Florida Democratic State Rep. Alan Williams has introduced a bill in the legislature that would do away with the Stand Your Ground defense, which law enforcement personnel and district attorneys have said makes their job harder in prosecuting shootings. Many believe the Florida legislature won't overturn the law, but changes have been bandied about by the Republican majority, which is a good thing...The death of Trayvon exposed the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a shadowy, corporate-funded group that has been one of the leading forces behind stand-yourground laws.

One lost life here, two lost there. We don't often piece all those crashes together and realize what's happening to our children. Sometimes to get change, you need a tipping point. Maybe this week will be it: Since Sunday, 15 teenagers have died in major car accidents around the U.S. Six died after crashing into a pond in Ohio. Five died when they crashed into a tanker truck in Texas. Four died when they crashed into a creek in Illinois. And that's just the crashes that were major and notable enough to make national news. One teen in Colorado died Sunday when the teen driver of a car he was in crashed into the side of a mobile home. Three died in Indiana when the drivers, in two trucks, ran stop signs and collided head-on. A 15-year-old driver in Maryland died when he was fleeing police in a car. And there are others, many which don't make the news. Crashes that don't end in fatalities but left serious damage: traumatic brain injuries, crippling spinal cord issues. "The numbers are so small and spread out geographically," said Timothy Hollister, a teen driving safety advocate in Connecticut whose book, "Not So Fast: Parenting Teen Drivers Before They Get Behind The Wheel", comes out in September. "It's only when you put the numbers together nationally that people even begin to take notice." Driving is the No. 1 killer of teens in this country, accounting for about 25 percent of teen deaths each year. About 3,000 to 5,000 teens die annually in car wrecks, enough to fill the halls of a large high school. Or two. Recently, the Governor's Highway Safety Association release preliminary figures for 2012 that show a troubling trend: After 10 years of declining, teen driving deaths are on the rise. Although teen crashes seem random and unpredictable, they actually often follow a predictable pattern: It's likely a group of teens heading nowhere in particular, probably late at night, and going fast. Often, they're not wearing seatbelts. Researchers have identified the dangerous habits of young drivers, who can't ever be considered safe behind the wheel because they are simply too novice. There's a common thread for many fatal crashes: More than one passenger in the car, especially if those passengers are male. The Passenger Effect A study released last year by AAA said passengers have a huge impact on fatalities: Fatality rates went up 44 percent with one passenger under 21 years old, doubled with two passengers, and quadruples when carrying three or more passengers who are under 21 years old. Many graduated drivers license (GDL) laws regulate how many passengers teens can have in the car before they are awarded a full license. Parents who are concerned about their teens behind the wheel want to pay close attention to this rule: Make sure your teens are driving alone mostly, with no more than one passenger. Don't let them carpool to and from school events. Don't let them head out for the evening with a bunch of other teens in one car. Remember that other passengers are a huge distraction that can turn into a fatal distraction. Attorney Harrell T.Buggs, passed away today at home, Thursday, March 21, 2013.

Billed as "the World's Largest Circus Under the Big Top, The gigantic tent of the Cole Brothers Circus of the Stars returned to the Exchange Club Fairgrounds in Brunswick, Georgia on March 20-21, 2013. The Cole Brothers Circus celebrates 129 years of circus history with legendary circus acts of the past to include The Globe of Death, Elephants and Acrobats, Camels and Jugglers, Dogs and Ponies, and the worlds largest Human Cannonball which gets fired at every show! New features included a "ligon" (a cross between a tiger and a lion) billed as "The World's Largest Cat", and an aerial troupe, the Flying Ponces. Thanks to B.O.R.D International Network and Florida/ Georgia Star News Papers, free tickets were donated to 70 children and adults who were wowed by circus acrobatics and had an opportunity to experience the circus by interacting with the entertainers and trying on their costumes. Hometown Hero Returns To Address Brunswick Men and Youth COLE BROTHERS CIRCUS CELEBRATES 126TH ANNIVERSARY By Arthia Nixon Florida/Georgia Star The College of Coastal Georgia will host one of Brunswicks sons who has gone off into the world, made a success on and off the field and is now focused on inspiring motivating and contributing to his hometown community, especially as it relates to young men. Coincidently, Dr. Alvin S. Perry is returning from his new home in New Jersey, in the aftermath of several horrific crimes which have shocked the community. Two shooting incidents recently resulted in victims being sent to hospital and tragically, one resulted in the death of a 13 month-old. With revelations that criminals of these violent crimes are as young as ten years old, Dr. Perrys message of Keep Your Feet MovingŽ is timely and topical. Im a man from Brunswick who came from humble beginnings and I too had my challenges,Ž he shared with me. However, my journey is not done. I plan on sharing not only my successes but also my failures because I want people to realize that we do have to learn how to overcome things in order to get to the next phase.Ž Perrys journey to success had a whole lot to do with his talent as a football player, but the son of the late Clarence Alvin Perry and Deloris P. Greene recalled, its a journey that nearly got derailed before it even started. The very first lesson I learned that stuck occurred when I was five,Ž he shared. I had signed up for football for the very first time and my dad was working to the Hercules chemical plant. Well, he come home and found me sitting in front of the tv and asked what I was doing. I told him I didnt feel like going to practice today and I was going to sit and watch cartoons. He told me that I had signed up and he said You are not going to quit … you are going to continue what you started and you are going to do it with a spirit of excellence. It was that lesson he gave me that made me instilled in me a dedication to strive for success. Even to this day, I have problem quitting something because of that lesson he gave me. I set out to do things and try to do them the best way I could.Ž Luckily for him, he decided to continue the lesson and football. I was quickly shown the pride Perry has in his roots when I asked which school he attended in his youth. Im a Pirate!Ž he beamed. But yes, I played through high school then I went to Savannah State on a football scholarship that lasted for two years. Then I transferred to Valdosta State. It took a while but eventually, I learned that I went to college to get a degree, not to play football.Ž According to Perry, Its not an epidemic its a pandemic. Our black and brown males are in trouble. For the most part, our households are 72% with a female as head of household. With no man in the home how can you teach a boy what a positive male role model is all about?Ž Dr. Alvin S. Perry, former Brunswick High football player opens up with our newspaper on his books, secrets to success and why he feels young men in the community are at risk. Its not an epidemic its a pandemic,Ž he says. Our black and brown males are in trouble. For the most part, our households are 72% with a female as head of household. With no man in the home how can you teach a boy what a positive male role model is all about? Another issue is that black men are not taking education seriously. Without a high school education, you are unemployable. You need to make a living or you will do something illegal to sustain yourself. We have to stop this cycle of from the womb, to the prison to the jail and/or graveyard. And these women need to get serious and stop accepting the nonsense and make them accountable. They need to take a role in their childrens lives and education is the key to getting out of that cycle.Ž While I had the pleasure of speaking to the man behind the movement for quite some time, Brunswick and the surrounding areas will have the chance to get up close and personal with him by showing their support when he makes his presentation and shares his books during his time in town this weekend. For more information, check out Dr. Perry from 4pm to 7pm in the South East Conference Center at the College of Coastal Georgia. For more information call 404-247-1772.

The heat that is generated by the light bulbs requires multiple air conditioning units and fans to cool the house. The house may have: € An excess amount of roof vents. € Unusual exhaust fan noises. € Unconventional amounts of steam coming from vents on the house during cold weather. € High amounts of .condensation around windows. € Outbuildings with air conditioners. € Purchase of very expensive heat lamps for unexplained reasons. Power is diverted from a homes meter to the grow house to prevent utility companies from becoming wary of large amounts of power running to a single home. The tell-tale sign of a grow house is diverted power. Signs of power diversion include tampering with electric meters (damaged or broken seals may be visible) or the ground around them, unexplained and excessively high utility bills and house or utilities obtained under assumed names with payment made in cash. Normally, people do not actually reside in a grow house, which explains suspicious activity such as: € Light timers used in order to make it appear as if people lived in the house, when in actuality few people are seen entering or leaving the home. € People making only late night or short visits. € People bringing items that are unusual into the house (for example: bags of soil, lots of plant roots and potting plants). € People constantly carrying items in and taking items away in garbage bags, but little or no garbage being put out. € Windows that are always covered. € People coming to take the garbage out, cut the lawn or do other maintenance and then leaving shortly after. € Individuals only entering or exiting through the garage and always keeping the garage door closed € Seeing people coming and going from the house only a day or two of the week. € A strange amount of vehicular traffic that carries individuals on or off the property. Entrance gates are usually locked after entry with most of the traffic occurring at night. € New neighbors that never take furniture or groceries into the house. Other signs that a large scale growing operation is occurring include: € Strange smells or strong smells of fabric softener. € Water lines and electrical cords running to a basement, pool or outbuilding. € Noises of hammering or drilling into the foundation. € Large amounts of potting soil around the house. € Excessive security such as guard dogs, keep out signs, high fences, heavy chains or locks on gates. € Large green houses or barns on property where this is not commonplace. If you have any information regarding any suspected illegal drug activity, please report it to police. Safety Man Eats Marijuana During Traffic Stop The police received information that 41-year-old Willie Bryant may be driving a white Cadillac with a missing female juvenile. An officer observed a vehicle that matched the description in an area and conducted a traffic stop. The officer then said he observed the driver placing something in his mouth as he exited the vehicle. The officer asked Bryant where the missing juvenile was and he mumbled the words "at a gas station on highway 200.Ž He noticed that Bryant was chewing and trying to swallow something, so the officer handcuffed him and commanded that he spit out the substance. Bryant then spit out some green substance on the trunk lid of the vehicle, which appeared to be marijuana. The officer then field tested the green substance which tested positive for marijuana. Bryant was charged with drug possession and tampering with evidence. The missing child was located by police. Willie Bryant Bank Manager Arrested for Organized Fraud Detectives with the Economic Crimes Unit were contacted by the security department of a bank. a report was made to law enforcement about a bank manager that had been stealing money from customer accounts since March of 2012. After speaking with the representative from security, detectives learned that at least two of the victims had produced documented proof of the alleged fraud and had provided sworn affidavits advising they had not withdrawn the funds from their accounts, nor had they authorized anyone else to do so. Investigation revealed that funds were withdrawn from multiple accounts belonging to the two victims making the original report. A grand total of $49,125 was made in fraudulent activity within almost a one-year period. Detectives obtained still photos and video from the bank where the transactions were made. It was clear that the victims were not present for any of the transactions. Detectives were able to make contact with the suspect, 41-year-old Jennifer Hoefler. During the interview, she admitted her involvement in the fraud, advising it was due to having a prescription drug addiction. Subsequent to the interview, a detective was advised that Hoefler had made a fraudulent withdrawal prior to the interview in the amount of $1,000 and that the money would be in her possession. Detectives found a sum of cash of $750 in her vehicle. Hoefler advised she used the rest of the money to purchase illegal narcotics earlier that day. Additional drug-related charges are expected. Police say it is easy for criminals to make fraudulent transactions without victims even knowing about it. We advise you to report unusual transactions even if they are small as soon as possible. Do not let these criminals get away with such crimes as they must be tracked down immediately. Hoefler was arrested and charged with second-degree organized fraud. She is being held on $50,000 bond. Jennifer Hoefler Couple Calls Police to Report Stabbing from Unknown Suspect, Investigation Instead Leads to Drug Charges A couple was arrested to report a stabbing that was reported to have been committed by an unknown suspect. After investigation of the home, the couple was arrested on drug-related charges instead. Around 2:13 a.m., police arrived at a home to find 24-year-old Chance Bradley sitting at the front porch on a plastic chair with just an underwear on. He also had a large cut along his upper chest area. Bradley's girlfriend, 31year-old Tegail Allen, was standing nearby while applying pressure on the wound. She also had blood on her but was not injured. Bradley told police he was walking from a relatives home when someone stabbed and robbed him. He also noted that he did not know the suspect. Allen said that she was asleep inside the home when the incident happened and did not see the suspect. She woke up to see her boyfriend bleeding outside and called 911 when she saw the wound. Police were also told that Bradley originally had $3,000 when he left the home, but returned with no money. During the investigation, Allen allowed police into the living room and bedroom areas. According to the report "there was a large amount of blood on a couch in the living room." The crime scene was then secured for the Forensic Crime Scene Technicians. Later that day, a search warrant was served. Detectives found 14 pieces of crack cocaine, marijuana, and other illegal narcotics at the home. Allen said that they were only for personal use and not for selling. Allen was arrested. Bradley went to the hospital where he was then shortly arrested after his release. Police say Bradley kept giving inconsistent stories about the incident. Both are facing four counts of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Allen has been released from jail.

LOCAL MARCH 23, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida Story by Marsha Dean Phelts, Pictures by Michael R. Phelts The Amelia Island Concours dElegance founded by Jacksonvilles Bill Warner in 1996 is held annually the 2nd weekend in March. This venue has developed as one of the top automotive events in the whole world. This 18th Annual Concours d'Elegance, March 8-10, 2013 honored the racing car career of Sam Posey, hailed as one of the youngest, brashest and fastest drivers of his time,1967-1975. Nine of the cars that Sam Posey raced were among the 300 entries displayed. Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost as early as 1907, Lamborghinis, Porsches, Bentleys, Ferraris, Maseratis, Mercedes-Benzes, BMWs, Cords, Duesenbergs, Packards, Studebakers and many, many other vintage and classic cars were showcased. Debuts of cars such as the 2014 C-7 Corvette Stingray, as well as the first in 50 years all-new F-Type Jaguar two-seater, the new 700-4 Roadster Lamborghini, Chryslers SRTs and Cadillacs Concept models wowed the crowds. What an exciting opportunity for all ages and genders. Throughout the weekend an estimated 25,000 people saw the most luxurious display of classic cars exhibited anywhere. During Concours d'Elegance the tiny Fernandina Beach Airport became a hub for the in and out Flexjets fleet of the 40, 45, 60 and soon to be 85 Learjet XRs as well as their Challenger 300 and 605 jets. Flexjet, a division of Bombardier is the world's largest business aviation manufacturer and the only manufacturer of planes and trains.These eight to twelve seater passenger jets provide 24-7 global services that offers a quality lifestyle of travel for time conscious car entrants. To Flexjet's clients, Time is moneyŽ ...the time to get to the next site is what appeals to clients who pay from $280,000 a share for 50 hours of air time to 1.4 million for 16 shares and 800 hours of flight time. Flexjet time sharers can travel around the globe as quickly as needed, avoiding being confined to the availability and connections of commercial flights and the airport drama. This year I had an opportunity to talk with Dylan Haynie, Vice President of Sales for Flexjet. While discussing business aviation services with Mr. Haynie and other staff members we sat in the facsimile / prototype of the insides of a Flexjet Learjet. This prototype on fairway number 18 at the Amelia Island Ritz-Carlton was at the entrance of the "Club Amelia" VIP tent that Flexjet hosted. The old adage, Time is money!Ž was never more evident to me less than 24 hours after the world class car show packed up and took to the roadways and skies again. Sunday afternoon, March 10 there had been 300 cars on the fairways of the Golf Club of Amelia Island. A day later while taking a spin around the neighborhood I noticed that not one car remained at the Ritz. Like time and money, the show cars had moved on. The area along Amelia Island Parkway where fancy illuminated double decker trailer queens that transported the show cars had been parked was now 90% cleared-vacant. Only a handful of trailers remained. The airport's runway now looked like a giant concrete slab in a field, a lone plane remained. Just the day before there had been hundreds of private jets, auto transporters, and cars that had now been driven, shipped or flown across the United States, Puerto Rico Canada, Austria, Germany, Israel, Italy and Monaco either home or the next show. Today there was nothing of the excitement from yesterday to catch. After riding pass the Ritz, and the trailer parking lot and the airport, I took the long way home to American Beach and drove in from Burney Road. There along curb side were, four auto transporters and ten luxury cars being prepared for transport. Wow! I so very slowly drove pass a gorgeous 1956 carmine red XK140 2-seater convertible Jaguar. Then my eyes fell upon a classic canary yellow convertible Corvette Stingray. After that I gazed upon a blazing red 1936 convertible Duesenberg. And then my eyes locked on a car the color of black coffee. The leather roof of the car and the interior were the color of coffee with cream. Right there I cut my car off in the east bound traffic lane on Burney Road and got out. Oh, what a beautiful smoking hot coffee colored car with wide white wall tires and external covered spare tires on both sides towards the front of the car. I asked the car's attendant where these cars were headed and she answered that the cars were being shipped to the homes of their new owners. The coffee colored car that arrested me in my tracks was originally owned by Mr. Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, the dancer. I commanded that the car porter take my picture along side "Mr. Bojangles" car and to my great joy she did. She told me that this car had just been sold at the auction for $700,000. I later learned that only 10 Dusenberg JNs were produced in 1935 with the first one delivered to Bill "Bojangles" Robinson at his home in Manhattan. The Duesenberg JN was equipped with skirted fenders, bullet-shaped taillights, and bodies set on the frame rails for a lower look. It has been stated that the only car that could pass a Duesenberg was another Duesenberg. This car was as beautiful to my eyes on March 11, 2013 as it was to Mr. Bojangles when it was delivered to his home, 78 years ago on July 10, 1935. Just cruising down Burney Road on American Beach I caught "Mr. Bojangles" 1935 Duesenberg JN before it was loaded on the "Trailer Queen" headed for home to its new owner. Oh What a joy. I can't imagine a more exciting or better Concours d'Elegance than the 18th Annual, but I hope to be there early and often to see the finest assembly of vintage and concept cars ever at the 19th Annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance March 7,-March 9, 2014. I can hardly wait until next year to attend an auction to watch the excitement of cars of a bye gone era. Duesenbergs manufactured from 1914-1937 quickly became one of the most popular luxury cars as well as a status symbol in the United States and Europe, driven by the nobility; the rich and famous, among them Al Capone, Greta Garbo, Howard Hughes, Mae West, Tyrone Power, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, William Randolph Hearst, the families Mars, Whitney, and Wrigley; members of European royalty such as the Duke of Windsor, Prince Nicholas of Romania, Queen Maria of Yugoslavia, and the Kings Victor Emmanuel III of Italy and Alfonso XIII of Spain. Father Divine, (1876-1965) African American Spiritual leader of the International Peace Mission movement, had the last Duesenberg chassis built with an extra-long 178-inch wheelbase. It accommodated ten passengers and was known as Father Divine's Throne Car because it had a removable rear top section that exposed two raised rear seats.

Miami Heat Still Undeafeated MARCH 23, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9All hail King James. LeBron James amazing career is climaxing after the Miami Heat grazed past the Cleaveland Cavaliers to 98-95 victory after a 27-point deficit. The win puts the Heats winning streak to 24. James finished with 25 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Mario Chalmers scored 17 points. Dwyane Wade finished with 11 points, six rebounds and five assists. Chris Bosh added 11 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Ray Allen and Shane Battier combined for 21 points off of the bench. Juwan Howard and Jarvis Varnado were inactive. Brad Meester (left), the only player to play for every head coach in Jaguars history, has agreed to terms to a one-year contract with the team for next season, the team announced Tuesday afternoon. Meester had his salary cut his in half to about $1.5 million but accepted the offer when the team asked him to come back. He added that he didnt want to suddenly relocate his five young daughters, with his wife expecting their sixth child. Meester, who will turn 36 next week, was originally a second-round selection by the Jaguars in the 2000 NFL Draft. He has played in a franchise-record 193 games, and has started all 16 games each of the last four seasons. "That's a great deal," Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said. "I think he knows the vision that we want to take this. I could sense it from the start that he was all in. I hoped it was a matter of time. It's a credit to (General Manager) Dave (Caldwell) and him to get that done. He's been on successful teams, so he knows what it's about. He gets it." Meanwile, the Jaguars also agreed to terms with veteran running back Justin Forsett. Forsett (5-8, 194), 27, who has played five NFL seasons, played much of his first four seasons in Seattle, the team that selected him in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He was waived by Seattle in September 2008, spent a month with Indianapolis, then spent most of the next four seasons on the Seahawks active roster. Who Got A Paycut To Play? LeBron James, with his fourth triple-double of the season, led all scorers with 25 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists Photo Credit: Jason Miller NFL'Tuck Rule' Eliminated At Annual MeetingA total of 29 NFL teams voted in favor of rescinding the "Tuck Rule". The rule is best known for playing a controversial role in the Patriots' playoff win over the Raiders in 2002. During the game, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appeared to have lost the ball on a fumble, but the late fourth-quarter play was ruled an incomplete pass. The elimination if the rule means a quarterback loses possession when he fumbles while trying to bring the ball back to his body after opting not to throw. If the passer loses control while the ball is going forward, it's still incomplete. If he loses the ball while tucking, it's a fumble. NFL owners also passed a rule that would ban players from leading with the crown of their helmets outside the tackle box. The rule passed by a wide margin, 31-1.

REFERENCE JOB #GA 8074463 FARM WORKERS NEEDED HEALTH INFORMATION Learning in the PreSchool/Day CareIn a pre-school setting, children learn while playing. Most pre-school classroom settings are arranged by centers. These centers are usually named: Dramatic Play, Book, Block, Science, and Art Center. Some centers may also have a Writing Center, Manipulative Center and Math Center, depending on the preference of the center director. As a parent or guardian, you may enter into a pre-school classroom setting, and you may say to yourself All they do is play.Ž As a center director/owner myself, I can assure you parents, when you see this happening, just know that your child is learning while they play. When children interact with others or explore their environment, there are very important things taking place within their brain. What and how children learn during their first 3 years establishes the building block for future learning and promotes successful learning for a lifetime. For example; when children play in the Science Center, they are: *learning about plants and animals *learning about weather and nature *measuring and comparing *discovering *learning about growth & life cycles *learning to use different materials and *expanding language and vocabulary. They are learning about their environment and the world that they live in. So when your child is playing with a rock, leaf etc., when your child is building with blocks they are learning cause and effect, when they play with puzzles etc., he or she is not just playing, they are learning. They learn and play, what a combination. In my center, one of our goals for our children is that they will develop spiritually, physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. Therefore, we purposely set up centers and activities that will enhance and assist them in growing in these areas as they learn and play, focusing solely on the whole child.
