By Arthia Nixon Florida/Georgia Star (Savannah, Georgia) The family of a Savannah man found dead in a locked vehicle are questioning what they feel has been a limited investigationŽ into his alleged suicide. Stating that they decided to come to the media after they were not being treated kindlyŽ by investigators, Sherry Clark and her mother Katherine are frustrated especially because they have a gut feelingŽ that Timothy Clark, Sr was killed and had no reason to want to end his life. The deep pauses and cracking of Katherine Clarks voice are a clear indicator that she is still mourning the death of her babyŽ who died on October 19th a few weeks short of his 31st birthday. They [police] said they found my son dead and it looks like suicide and he was shot in the head,Ž she said from her home in Savannah, still displaying photos of her son. I said there is no way he did it to himself. The car he was in was locked up and the gun was in his lap. Ive been trying to find answers since October. Someone else could have locked up that car. Its just not adding up. Tim loved his life and his kids. He just had a young baby. I need to know what happened to my child because there is no satisfaction at all.Ž Mrs. Clark claims that she nor her daughter-in-law were allowed at the crime scene or to identify him at the coroners office. She told us that her son, at six foot two, had not been found with gun residue in his hands and that the gun was lying in his lap while his hand was in the passenger seat. She added that the mystery was heightened when the family contacted the rental company to find out if the car Clark was discovered in was still available so that they could see it. The woman told us that car was at the rental place and there where bullet holes from behind the car,Ž claims Mrs. Clark. Tims wife called the detective and asked about the car appearing to have a window shot out and bullet holes from behind. The woman at the rental place told us we could take photos but by the time we got down there the car was towed away by police. That is just not adding up.Ž Clarks sister, Shelly believes her brother was gunned down because he made a fool out of the police more than onceŽ. Yes, he had to provide for his family and after he could not make money to provide for them in his jobs, he got caught up with doing some things he shouldnt have,Ž admitted Shelly. He had been arrested for taking the cops on a high speed chase before and I think they had something to do with it because there are too many holes in the story.Ž Sherry and her mother have been going back and forth to police together trying to find answers. Their last meeting with law enforcement was on Wednesday. Tune in next week, with part two of this excusive story as we attempt to contact police to determine why the case was closed.

Federal documents were filed in New York on Tuesday, reports say Kevin Kiadii, 25, was 16 when he met the Clash during an online chat. Clash sent a car from Manhattan to Brooklyn for Kiadii. "Upon his arrival, Kevin Clash gave Kiadii alcohol and groomed him with attention and affection," the lawsuit says, reports The Baltimore Sun. While the sex was consensual, the lawsuit says, but "as a 16-year-old child, Kiadii was not emotionally or psychologically prepared for a sexual relationship with a grown man in his forties." The age of consent in New York is 17.

Lil Meechie would always visit Boatwright's Corner Store on Ave D. Mr. Boatwright didn't know what Lil Meechie's problem was, but the neighborhood boys would constantly tease him. They would always comment that he was two bricks shy of a load, or two pickles short of a barrel. To prove it, sometimes they would offer Lil Meechie his choice between a nickel (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents) and just like clockwork Lil Meechie would always take the nickel .they said, because it was bigger. One day after Lil Meechie grabbed the nickel, Mr. Boatwright took him in the back of the store grabbed and shook him and said "Dementrious, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it is bigger, or what?"

Parents should look for multiple signs to indicate possible gang involvement because some of these indicators alone, such as clothes or musical preferences, are also common among youth not involved in gangs. Parents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with local gang symbols, seek help early, and consider contacting school personnel, local law enforcement, faith leaders, and community organizations for additional assistance. Warning Signs That Your Child May Be Involved with a Gang : € Admits to "hanging out" with kids in gangs € Shows an unusual interest in one or two particular colors of clothing or a particular logo € Has an unusual interest in gangster-influenced music, videos, movies, or websites. € Uses unusual hand signals to communicate with friends € Has specific drawings or gang symbols on school books, clothes, walls, or tattoos € Comes home with unexplained physical injuries (fighting-related bruises, injuries to hand/knuckles) € Has unexplained cash or goods, such as clothing or jewelry € Carries a weapon € Has been in trouble with the police € Exhibits negative changes in behavior such as: -Withdrawing from family -Declining school attendance, performance, behavior -Staying out late without reason -Displaying an unusual desire for secrecy -Exhibiting signs of drug use -Breaking rules consistently -Speaking in gang-style slang What Parents Can Do to Prevent Gang Involvement : € Spend quality time with your child € Be a positive role model and set the right example € Know your child's friends and their families € Encourage good study habits € Teach your child how to cope with peer pressure € Take action in your neighborhood (create a neighborhood alliance, report and remove graffiti) € Talk with your child about the dangers and consequences of gang involvement. Let your child know that you don't want to see him or her hurt or arrested. Explain to your child that he or she should NOT: -Associate with gang members -Attend parties or social events sponsored by gangs -Use hand signs, symbols, or language that is meaningful to gangs -Wear clothing, including specific colors, which may have meaning to gangs in your area Safety Murder Suspect Turns Self In A man had turned himself in several days after a homicide incident had occurred. Police say 22-year-old Rodney Dejontae Speights went to the incident scene with the intent to confront and fight 20-year-old Osh Totter Williams. Prior to the incident occurring Speights told a witness his intent to fight with the victim as retribution for a fight the victim had participated in the day before. Just before to the incident, Speights was observed on video walking up to the victim and engaging him in a conversation. Speights was then seen shooting the victim multiple times with what was later determined to be a .40 caliber semi automatic handgun. The victim was struck multiple times and died shortly thereafter at the scene. Speights was later identified by witnesses from the surveillance video. Speights turned himself in four days later and was charged with first-degree murder. Rodney Speights Man Steals Several Hundred Dollars Worth of Coins from Bank Police Arrested a man in connection with a night time bank burglary and a series of other crimes over a period of two weeks. Police say someone had broken a window of a bank just after midnight. After bank employees temporarily repaired the window, the suspect returned and stole a large amount of coins. During the course of the investigation, detectives determined that a man seen carrying the same bag as the suspect in the bank surveillance video exchanged several hundred dollars worth of coins at the Coin Star machine inside a Walmart store later that day. The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Zachary Beyer-Radford. Beyer-Radford was also under investigation for additional retail thefts at Walmart and for stealing the rental vehicle that he used to commit these crimes. The stolen car was a black 2013 Chevrolet Impala. Tactical Unit deputies located him about five days later and during a search of his vehicle, they found drugs, ammunition, and items stolen from Walmart. Beyer-Radford confessed to the crimes and is charged with burglary, wearing a mask or hood to commit a felony, two counts of grand theft, one count of petit theft, drug possession, possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon, driving without a valid license and grand theft auto. He is being held on more than $40,000 bond. Mother Arrested for Child Neglect and Drugs A woman was arrested after she was found passed out with drugs near her five-month-old son. Police arrived at a home just before 8:00 p.m., after an anonymous caller requested a welfare check on a child. They found Andrea Keesling, 42, unconscious and hanging off a reclining chair. Keeslings infant son was strapped in a car seat on the floor of the home. A crushed codeine pill was also found about one foot away from the child. The child, who has Down Syndrome, was hungry and in need of a diaper change. After numerous attempts to wake Keesling, she finally woke up when police shook her. Keesling is charged with child neglect, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and obstruction. Keesling has an extensive criminal history of drug arrests, DUI, and prescription fraud. The child is now in DCF custody. Zachary Beyer-Radford Andrea Keesling Man with 39 Felonies Arrested for MurderA man with an extensive and violent criminal history was arrested for the murder of another man. Detectives say 40-year-old Dushun Robinson fatally stabbed Steven Palasz during a fight that started inside a trailer. Robinson reportedly punched Palasz in the face and the fight eventually moved outside, where the deceased victim was found by police a short time later. According to police, a witness said that they argument started inside the trailer home after Palasz started yelling, swearing, and acting violent towards Robinson. When the fight started she told them chill outŽ and the two men took the fight outside. Robinson was said to have come back inside the home within a couple minutes and demanded someone take him home. A neighbor that was there did so and the witness said Robinson called her later and threatened to kill her and her family if she told anybody about the incident. When the neighbor who took Robinson home was questioned, he said he did not know Palasz was dead at the time. The Fugitive Apprehension Unit, working in conjunction with the U.S. Marshal Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force, located him about a week later after the incident. Robinson was arrested and charged with one count of murder in the second degree and is being held without bond. Police say this is Robinsons 30th arrest and has been faced with charges including cocaine possession, aggravated stalking, battery and robbery. That doesnt include the many times he violated probation or was in contempt of court. Despite facing 39 felony charges and 27 misdemeanors to date, Robinson was only sentenced to prison once, serving just four years and eight months. Dushun Robinson

The Jacksonville Suns announced the team's 2013 promotional schedule, including a mix of great giveaways and fanfavorite entertainment.

For the first time since 2003 the brightest stars throughout the Southern League will be on display at the Baseball Grounds as the Suns host the 2013 Southern League AllStar Game on Wednesday July 17.

Jacksonville native, switch hitting Atlanta Brave Chipper Jones dons his Bolles jersey on a bobblehead giveaway on Saturday, June 29. The Suns will also have two former Atlanta Braves player appearances with Dale Murphy and John Rocker. Kevin Ware has no interest in watching a replay of what millions saw live … him landing so hard on his leg that his bone broke and punctured through his skin in the middle of a basketball game. While his team, the Louisville Cardinals triumphed over Duke, 8563, Wares return to Atlanta for the Final Four is a bittersweet moment for him … sweet because hes back on his high school stomping ground where he has a huge support, bitter because even though he got the all clear to be released from the hospital, he will not get to play in front of Georgians. Ironically, the horrific live incident has thrust the player into the spotlight and hes received thousands of well wishes, his NBA player LeBron James tweeted words of encouragement along with other basketball stars such as Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, and Rajon Rondo. Said Ware of the incident: It's kind of insane, because we play Duke in the Bahamas, and the exact same play happened, with the exact same player and it was just on the opposite side of the court, so I went to contest the shot, like I normally always do, I kind of joked a little bit, like I should have blocked the shot because I jumped so high, but I guess I just landed wrong and didn't see where I was landing, so that's kind of what caused the injury. But I kind of felt like stuff like this doesn't just happen for no reason, you know. There is a reason behind everything. So, I don't know what the reason is going to be, but it is just a process I'm ready for it, you know.Ž At the time, Coach Carter gave my leg a look, like, like he's never seen something like this before,Ž Ware added. So I'm just thinking, like, my ankle is hurt or something like that. And I look down at my leg and my bone is six inches out of my leg and I just go into automatic shock.Ž Photo by Jeff Reinking, Louisville Athletics Department Kevin Ware Recovering After Injury

By Arthia Nixon Florida/Georgia Star (Savannah, Georgia) The family of a Savannah man found dead in a locked vehicle are questioning what they feel has been a limited investigation into his alleged suicide. Stating that they decided to come to the media after they were not being treated kindly by investigators, Sherry Clark and her mother Katherine are frustrated especially because they have a gut feeling that Timothy Clark, Sr was killed and had no reason to want to end his life. The deep pauses and cracking of Katherine Clarks voice are a clear indicator that she is still mourning the death of her baby who died on October 19th a few weeks short of his 31st birthday. They [police] said they found my son dead and it looks like suicide and he was shot in the head, she said from her home in Savannah, still displaying photos of her son. I said there is no way he did it to himself. The car he was in was locked up and the gun was in his lap. Ive been trying to find answers since October. Someone else could have locked up that car. Its just not adding up. Tim loved his life and his kids. He just had a young baby. I need to know what happened to my child because there is no satisfaction at all. Mrs. Clark claims that she nor her daughter-in-law were allowed at the crime scene or to identify him at the coroners office. She told us that her son, at six foot two, had not been found with gun residue in his hands and that the gun was lying in his lap while his hand was in the passenger seat. She added that the mystery was heightened when the family contacted the rental company to find out if the car Clark was discovered in was still available so that they could see it. The woman told us that car was at the rental place and there where bullet holes from behind the car, claims Mrs. Clark. Tims wife called the detective and asked about the car appearing to have a window shot out and bullet holes from behind. The woman at the rental place told us we could take photos but by the time we got down there the car was towed away by police. That is just not adding up. Clarks sister, Shelly believes her brother was gunned down because he made a fool out of the police more than once. Yes, he had to provide for his family and after he could not make money to provide for them in his jobs, he got caught up with doing some things he shouldnt have, admitted Shelly. He had been arrested for taking the cops on a high speed chase before and I think they had something to do with it because there are too many holes in the story. Sherry and her mother have been going back and forth to police together trying to find answers. Their last meeting with law enforcement was on Wednesday. Tune in next week, with part two of this excusive story as we attempt to contact police to determine why the case was closed.

Federal documents were filed in New York on Tuesday, reports say Kevin Kiadii, 25, was 16 when he met the Clash during an online chat. Clash sent a car from Manhattan to Brooklyn for Kiadii. "Upon his arrival, Kevin Clash gave Kiadii alcohol and groomed him with attention and affection," the lawsuit says, reports The Baltimore Sun. While the sex was consensual, the lawsuit says, but "as a 16-year-old child, Kiadii was not emotionally or psychologically prepared for a sexual relationship with a grown man in his forties." The age of consent in New York is 17.

Jacksonville police are seeking the whereabouts of Travis Thornton, a man wanted in connection with a homicide. According to reports, on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, at 5:08 p.m. homicide detectives began investigating an incident at 702 N. Lincoln Ct, Roosevelt Gardens Apartments. Investigation revealed that the Bradley Jamal Jackson, 22 and multiple individuals were involved in an altercation near the playground/courtyard area of the apartments. Jackson began making efforts to leave the area and was followed by the individuals through the courtyard. One of the individuals produced and displayed a handgun causing the victim to produce his own handgun. The victim made no attempts to threaten anyone with his handgun but continued to walk from the area. The suspect, Travis Thornton, came up behind the victim and shot him in his head, killing the victim instantly. The suspect then fled the scene and his whereabouts are unknown at this time.Anyone who has any information in regards the whereabouts of this suspect is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-6300500 or email us at JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org.

According to an accident report filed by North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Marlon Williams, the airbags had been deployed inside the car which was found in a ditch. The report also stated that no driver was at the scene. Watkins was reported missing by coworkers and a second police officer found her while searching for clues in her disappearance when he checked the car which had been towed to a lot. Im thinking she could still have been alive, said her son Al Parker. How do you not look in the car? When you pulled the car out, how do you not see a body in the car?

Lil Meechie would always visit Boatwright's Corner Store on Ave D. Mr. Boatwright didn't know what Lil Meechie's problem was, but the neighborhood boys would constantly tease him. They would always comment that he was two bricks shy of a load, or two pickles short of a barrel. To prove it, sometimes they would offer Lil Meechie his choice between a nickel (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents) and just like clockwork Lil Meechie would always take the nickel .they said, because it was bigger. One day after Lil Meechie grabbed the nickel, Mr. Boatwright took him in the back of the store grabbed and shook him and said "Dementrious, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it is bigger, or what?" Slowly, Lil Meechie turned toward Mr. Boatwright and a big grin appeared on his face and he said, "Well, if I took the dime, they'd stop doing it, and so far I've saved $20!

This will mark the 98thannual meeting of this esteemed organization which establishes the annual black history theme and was founded by Carter G. Woodson, the Father of Black History. A Local Arrangements Committee (LAC), made up of five work groups to assist with planning for entertainment, publicity, vendors and exhibits, special events, and volunteers, will meet monthly leading up to the event.

Cyrus and Gaynelle Adams-Jackson, the conventions event planner, expect more than 1,000 individuals, scholars, historians, business professionals, national speakers, and students to explore the 2013 black history theme, At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington. The year 2013 signifies the 150thanniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and 50 years since March and I Have a Dream speech delivered by the late Rev.

The national office has issued a call for papers which must be submitted by May 15, 2013. The conference is conveniently priced to allow attendees to pay for full access to all activities or purchase selected components. Volunteers are the backbone of any event.

Parents should look for multiple signs to indicate possible gang involvement because some of these indicators alone, such as clothes or musical preferences, are also common among youth not involved in gangs. Parents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with local gang symbols, seek help early, and consider contacting school personnel, local law enforcement, faith leaders, and community organizations for additional assistance. Warning Signs That Your Child May Be Involved with a Gang : Admits to "hanging out" with kids in gangs Shows an unusual interest in one or two particular colors of clothing or a particular logo Has an unusual interest in gangster-influenced music, videos, movies, or websites. Uses unusual hand signals to communicate with friends Has specific drawings or gang symbols on school books, clothes, walls, or tattoos Comes home with unexplained physical injuries (fighting-related bruises, injuries to hand/knuckles) Has unexplained cash or goods, such as clothing or jewelry Carries a weapon Has been in trouble with the police Exhibits negative changes in behavior such as: -Withdrawing from family -Declining school attendance, performance, behavior -Staying out late without reason -Displaying an unusual desire for secrecy -Exhibiting signs of drug use -Breaking rules consistently -Speaking in gang-style slang What Parents Can Do to Prevent Gang Involvement : Spend quality time with your child Be a positive role model and set the right example Know your child's friends and their families Encourage good study habits Teach your child how to cope with peer pressure Take action in your neighborhood (create a neighborhood alliance, report and remove graffiti) Talk with your child about the dangers and consequences of gang involvement. Let your child know that you don't want to see him or her hurt or arrested. Explain to your child that he or she should NOT: -Associate with gang members -Attend parties or social events sponsored by gangs -Use hand signs, symbols, or language that is meaningful to gangs -Wear clothing, including specific colors, which may have meaning to gangs in your area Safety Murder Suspect Turns Self In A man had turned himself in several days after a homicide incident had occurred. Police say 22-year-old Rodney Dejontae Speights went to the incident scene with the intent to confront and fight 20-year-old Osh Totter Williams. Prior to the incident occurring Speights told a witness his intent to fight with the victim as retribution for a fight the victim had participated in the day before. Just before to the incident, Speights was observed on video walking up to the victim and engaging him in a conversation. Speights was then seen shooting the victim multiple times with what was later determined to be a .40 caliber semi automatic handgun. The victim was struck multiple times and died shortly thereafter at the scene. Speights was later identified by witnesses from the surveillance video. Speights turned himself in four days later and was charged with first-degree murder. Rodney Speights Man Steals Several Hundred Dollars Worth of Coins from Bank Police Arrested a man in connection with a night time bank burglary and a series of other crimes over a period of two weeks. Police say someone had broken a window of a bank just after midnight. After bank employees temporarily repaired the window, the suspect returned and stole a large amount of coins. During the course of the investigation, detectives determined that a man seen carrying the same bag as the suspect in the bank surveillance video exchanged several hundred dollars worth of coins at the Coin Star machine inside a Walmart store later that day. The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Zachary Beyer-Radford. Beyer-Radford was also under investigation for additional retail thefts at Walmart and for stealing the rental vehicle that he used to commit these crimes. The stolen car was a black 2013 Chevrolet Impala. Tactical Unit deputies located him about five days later and during a search of his vehicle, they found drugs, ammunition, and items stolen from Walmart. Beyer-Radford confessed to the crimes and is charged with burglary, wearing a mask or hood to commit a felony, two counts of grand theft, one count of petit theft, drug possession, possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon, driving without a valid license and grand theft auto. He is being held on more than $40,000 bond. Mother Arrested for Child Neglect and Drugs A woman was arrested after she was found passed out with drugs near her five-month-old son. Police arrived at a home just before 8:00 p.m., after an anonymous caller requested a welfare check on a child. They found Andrea Keesling, 42, unconscious and hanging off a reclining chair. Keeslings infant son was strapped in a car seat on the floor of the home. A crushed codeine pill was also found about one foot away from the child. The child, who has Down Syndrome, was hungry and in need of a diaper change. After numerous attempts to wake Keesling, she finally woke up when police shook her. Keesling is charged with child neglect, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and obstruction. Keesling has an extensive criminal history of drug arrests, DUI, and prescription fraud. The child is now in DCF custody. Zachary Beyer-Radford Andrea Keesling Man with 39 Felonies Arrested for MurderA man with an extensive and violent criminal history was arrested for the murder of another man. Detectives say 40-year-old Dushun Robinson fatally stabbed Steven Palasz during a fight that started inside a trailer. Robinson reportedly punched Palasz in the face and the fight eventually moved outside, where the deceased victim was found by police a short time later. According to police, a witness said that they argument started inside the trailer home after Palasz started yelling, swearing, and acting violent towards Robinson. When the fight started she told them chill out and the two men took the fight outside. Robinson was said to have come back inside the home within a couple minutes and demanded someone take him home. A neighbor that was there did so and the witness said Robinson called her later and threatened to kill her and her family if she told anybody about the incident. When the neighbor who took Robinson home was questioned, he said he did not know Palasz was dead at the time. The Fugitive Apprehension Unit, working in conjunction with the U.S. Marshal Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force, located him about a week later after the incident. Robinson was arrested and charged with one count of murder in the second degree and is being held without bond. Police say this is Robinsons 30th arrest and has been faced with charges including cocaine possession, aggravated stalking, battery and robbery. That doesnt include the many times he violated probation or was in contempt of court. Despite facing 39 felony charges and 27 misdemeanors to date, Robinson was only sentenced to prison once, serving just four years and eight months. Dushun Robinson

Suns Season BeginsAPRIL 6, 2013 THESTAR PAGEJACKSONVILLE, Fla. The Jacksonville Suns announced the team's 2013 promotional schedule, including a mix of great giveaways and fanfavorite entertainment. The Suns return to the field and share the excitement of professional baseball with fans to kick off the 2013 season. The Suns began their regular season on Thursday, April 4. For the first time since 2003 the brightest stars throughout the Southern League will be on display at the Baseball Grounds as the Suns host the 2013 Southern League AllStar Game on Wednesday July 17. All-Star festivities begin on Tuesday July 16 with a special All-Star Gala and MLB All-Star Game watch party at the Jacksonville Landing. The Southern League All-Stars will be on hand and the public is invited to watch the Big League AllStar Game on the videoboard in the Landing Courtyard. Wednesday July 17 begins with the All-Star Game FanFest at Bragan Field and continues with the Southern League Homerun Derby. First Pitch of the 2013 Southern League All-Star Game is scheduled for 7:05pm on Wednesday as well. The Baseball Grounds will again host a number of celebrities and great entertainment acts this season. There will be two t-shirt giveaways this season beginning with World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party T-Shirts on Saturday, April 27 followed by Pink T-shirts for ALL ladies on Saturday, May 11, the night before Mother's Day as the Suns raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer. Jacksonville native, switch hitting Atlanta Brave Chipper Jones dons his Bolles jersey on a bobblehead giveaway on Saturday, June 29. The Suns will also have two former Atlanta Braves player appearances with Dale Murphy and John Rocker. Kevin Ware has no interest in watching a replay of what millions saw live him landing so hard on his leg that his bone broke and punctured through his skin in the middle of a basketball game. While his team, the Louisville Cardinals triumphed over Duke, 8563, Wares return to Atlanta for the Final Four is a bittersweet moment for him sweet because hes back on his high school stomping ground where he has a huge support, bitter because even though he got the all clear to be released from the hospital, he will not get to play in front of Georgians. Ironically, the horrific live incident has thrust the player into the spotlight and hes received thousands of well wishes, his NBA player LeBron James tweeted words of encouragement along with other basketball stars such as Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, and Rajon Rondo. Said Ware of the incident: It's kind of insane, because we play Duke in the Bahamas, and the exact same play happened, with the exact same player and it was just on the opposite side of the court, so I went to contest the shot, like I normally always do, I kind of joked a little bit, like I should have blocked the shot because I jumped so high, but I guess I just landed wrong and didn't see where I was landing, so that's kind of what caused the injury. But I kind of felt like stuff like this doesn't just happen for no reason, you know. There is a reason behind everything. So, I don't know what the reason is going to be, but it is just a process I'm ready for it, you know. At the time, Coach Carter gave my leg a look, like, like he's never seen something like this before, Ware added. So I'm just thinking, like, my ankle is hurt or something like that. And I look down at my leg and my bone is six inches out of my leg and I just go into automatic shock. Photo by Jeff Reinking, Louisville Athletics Department Kevin Ware Recovering After Injury
