By Arthia Nixon Florida/Georgia Star A Brunswick pastor has come under fire after a YouTube video surfaced of him publicly discussing several current issues while using cuss words and blasting several prominent members of the community. Rev. Kenneth Adkins was spotted in a Brunswick barbershop wearing a red shirt holding a conversation in which he referred to whites as crackers and blacks as niggers. During the seven minute long rant he was clearly heard saying I dont f*ck with themŽ when referring to some people. In addition to accusing former judge Amanda Williams of several things, he talked about a local man who went to jail for not paying child support stating he went to jail because he wasnt gonna give that ho none of his moneyŽ, referring to the mans wife. In another shocking part of the video, Adkins stated: I'm saying it's the black leaders fault. I'm saying it's the old school. I'm saying it's [name illegible], Robert Griffin, and Buck Rogers and all y'all's fault and all of you in here who have been the HNIC … the head n*gger in charge of being in a city like this.Ž He accused the upstanding men who have tirelessly given to the community of working along with people like Williams and not looking out for po n*ggersŽ. [They] allow this to happen because they were getting their money,Ž ranted Adkins. They were getting their houses paid forƒŽ Perhaps the most shocking part of the video was to hear Adkins view of the people he pastors. Most shocking however was to hear him describe his role in the community. I've got to pastor these poor ass n*ggers,Ž he said. I got their best interestsƒ Mark Baker is always going to be a rich n*ggerƒ So I don't hold the light with these street n*ggers. I ain't never gonna not have ... I tell the sisters I don't give a damn if they have one or two baby daddies. I've got my best interest because I'm trying to look out for me.Ž Up to press time, the video had over 2,000 views and several comments. ugtxkpi"{qw"ukpeg"3;730 Tcvgf"‰C-“"d{"vjg Dgvvgt"Dwukpguu"Dwtgcw Cp"Cyctf Ykppkpi Rwdnkecvkqp Tgcf"Vjg"Hnqtkfc cpf"Igqtikc"Uvct Pgyurcrgtu0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqo Nkuvgp"vq"KORCEV Tcfkq"Vcnm"Ujqy0 The peoples choice Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct R0"Q0"Dqz"6284; Lcemuqpxknng."HN"54425 PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFC‘U"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV Rtguqtvgf"Uvcpfctf W0U0"Rquvcig"Rckf Lcemuqpxknng."HN Rgtokv""Pq0"5839 Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct.

One 1st Sunday morning, the Rev. Dr Lawrence noticed that his then 3 year grandson Dementrious was standing and staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. He noticed that the youngster had been staring at the plaque for some time, so he walked up and stood beside him. Gazing up at the plaque too, he said quietly, "Good morning grandson." "Good morning Granddaddy" replied Lil Meechie, not taking his eyes off the plaque. "Granddaddy, what's this?" Lil Meechie asked. "Well son, the plaque list all of the people who have died in service," replied the Rev. Dr. All was quiet for a moment as they stood together staring up at the large plaque. Lil Meechie's voice barely broke the silence when he asked real quietly, "Which one Granddaddy, Sunday School service or the 11:00 am service?

PAGE 4 THE STAR APRIL 13, 2013 E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.The Democratic Club of Amelia Island Elects Allean Deloris Gilyard PresidentAllean Deloris Gilyard a deeply rooted resident of American Beach was recently elected President of the Democratic Club of Amelia Island. Mrs. Gilyards hands on role as a community servant are steep and widely appreciated. Years ago she was a charter founder bringing the Jack and Jill, Inc. to Fernandina Beach. She and her husband, Erving, were also charter members of the American Beach 4-H Club. When asked how she became involved with the Women for Obama Campaign and the Democratic Club of Amelia Island? Gilyard stated, I have been excited about being a Democrat and voting since my high school days.Ž In her sophomore year she was honored to have been elected Home Coming Queen, by her senior year she was elected Student Body President. As Student Body President she initiated a project to help students understand the voting process. When she approached officials about bringing a voting booth to the school for classmates and fellow students to actually go inside a voting booth and get the feel of this very important process, she was surprised at how readily the Supervisor of Elections Office agreed. She along with so many of her classmates were barely eighteen, and this was a very big deal for them. Deloris vividly remembers this adolescence experience saying, Getting my drivers license at the age of sixteen was exciting, but registering to vote at eighteen, was the ultimate.Ž After graduating from Florida State University Mrs. Gilyard began teaching in Fernandina Beach. Her entire teaching career which expanded more than 30 years has been at the highly academic rated Fernandina Beach High School. Here she taught a range of food preparation and nutrition classes including gourmet dining, sponsored a variety of student activities and served as Chairman of the Exceptional Student Education Department. In 1998 Mrs. Gilyard was one of three educators in the eleven county north east Florida region to receive the prestigious Outstanding Contribution to Career Development Awareness Award from the First Coast Manufacturers Association. The First Coast Manufacturers Association is noted for their committed to Environmental Protection, Workforce Education, Economic Improvement. A renowned caterer, Mrs. Gilyard is constantly sought for her variety of cakes and preparing special events dinners for clients. Throughout the year family and friends of the Gilyards fill their American Beach home to capacity for their annual Christmas Brunch, Shrimp Festival Picnic and frequent Food Fests. Mrs. Gilyard is a member of the First Missionary Baptist Church in downtown Fernandina Beach, immediate past Secretary of the Fernandina Beach Retired Teachers Association and Secretary of the American Beach Property Owners Association, Inc. She says of her new role in the Democratic Club, My goal is to inspire and motivate our community to follow the democratic principles and to help grow our democratic base in Nassau County. I am grateful to all the activists who have paved the way, and I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve as President of the Democratic Club of Amelia Island. Gilyard and fellow democrats are looking forward to the next four years and beyond. Their continued mission is to turn Nassau County BLUEŽ along with the rest of the state of Florida and to elect more democrats to local, state and national offices. They hone their skills through year round voter registration and education campaigns. In election campaigns volunteers man the phone banks encouraging electors to take advantage of voting by mail and early voting. They also do strategic door to door canvassing. With the Back-2-Back campaigns that elected Barack Obama President of the United States Back-2-Back, the Democratic Club of Amelia Island Is responsible for getting more people voting than ever before.

Thats why it is so important that parents build a strong relationship with their kids and talk to them about substance abuse -the earlier the better! Here are a few ways you can build a positive relationship with your kids and start talking to them about drugs. Establish and maintain good communication with your children The better you know your children, the easier it will be to guide them towards positive activities and friendships. € Talk to your children every day. Share what happened to you and ask what happened to them during the day. € Ask questions that kids cant answer with yesŽ or no,Ž such as what was your favorite part of the day.Ž Ask your children their opinions and include them in making decisions. Show your children that you value their thoughts and input. € Be ready to talk to your children as early as the fourth grade, when they may first feel peer pressure to experiment with alcohol, drugs, or cigarettes € Listen to your childs or teens concerns nonjudgmentally. Repeat them to make clear that you understand. Dont preach. Get involved in your childrens lives Young people are less likely to get involved with drugs when caring adults are a part of their life. € Spend time doing something your children want to do every day. € Support your childrens activities by attending special events, like recitals and games, and praising them for their efforts. € Help your children manage problems by asking what is wrong when they seem upset and letting them know you are there to help. Be a positive role model Children imitate adults. € Demonstrate ways to solve problems, have fun, and manage stress without using alcohol or drugs. € Point out examples of irresponsible behavior, such as ones you see in movies or hear in music. € Remember that you set the example. Avoid contradictions between your words and your actions. Use alcohol in moderation, dont smoke cigarettes, and never use drugs. Talk to your children about drugs € Talk to your children one-on-one and together. € Educate yourself about alcohol, tobacco, and drug use before talking to your children. You will lose credibility if you dont have your facts right. € Explain the effects of drugs on the body and the legal consequences of using drugs. € Make it clear that you dont want your kids to use drugs and that you will be disappointed if they do. € If any of your children have tried drugs, be honest about your disappointment, but emphasize that you still love them. Safety Middle School Teacher Face Drug ChargesA teacher from a middle school was arrested on drug charges during a traffic stop. An officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle after the driver failed to stop at a posted stop sign. The driver was 36-year-old Donya Leigh-Anne Dennard. As the officer was speaking with Dennard, he detected the odor of marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle. When the deputy asked for consent to search the vehicle, Dennard became nervous and advised the deputy she did have something illegal in the vehicle. When asked what the illegal contents were, Dennard told the officer she had a bag of marijuana in the vehicle. The officer searched the vehicle and located three separate bags of marijuana inside of the vehicle with a total weight of 19.8 grams. The officer soon found out that Dennard was taught at a middle school. D Dennard was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis and possession of paraphernalia. She has been since bonded out. Donya Dennard Men Wanted for 28 Charges Arrested Two wanted men were arrested after being spotted at a park where detectives were training and learning surveillance techniques. The two men face a combined total of 28 charges. While participating in field training at a park, a detective observed a suspicious vehicle in the parking area. The suspect vehicle, a silver Cadillac with dark tinted windows and a temporary tag matched a description of a vehicle connected to Felony Lane/Smash n GrabŽ suspects. The surveilling deputies called other patrol deputies in the area and they conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle after it left the park. "Felony Lane/Smash 'n Grab" refers to a group of suspects who seek areas where women are known to leave their purses in parked cars, such as schools, daycares, parks, gyms, and churches. The suspects usually use a rental car with dark temporary tint on the windows and pull up next to a victim's car, punch a hole in the window, and steal purses and other items of value. The entire crime usually takes less than 60 seconds. The male suspects then give the stolen driver's licenses to female accomplices who use wigs and disguises to take stolen checks to the farthest lane at a bank drive-through (hence the phrase "felony lane"), and cash the checks. They typically also fill up their cars with gasoline using stolen credit cards and make other fraudulent purchases. A traffic stop was made on the suspicious vehicle and the occupants were identified as Javon Hines, 23, and Simmie Dinkins, 24. They told police that they were in the area to meet some women and were in the park smoking a blunt.Ž Both men were arrested. Hines was arrested for outstanding warrants for conveyance burglary, grant theft, aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, and criminal mischief. Dinkins was arrested for outstanding warrants for twenty one counts of criminal use of person identification, two counts of conspiracy to commit criminal use of ID, and one count of organized fraud. Police say the Cadillac was originally seen parked next to a white Subaru Outback which had a womans purse and GPS in plain view. It is believed the suspects may have been targeting the items inside the Subaru. A screw driver was also located in the back seat area of the Cadillac where Hines was sitting. The investigation is ongoing. Javon Hines Simmie Dinkins Carjack Suspect Targets Man with Child A man was arrested after carjacking a man who was carrying a baby. An officer was patrolling an area and was at one point was flagged down by a witness. The witness was waving her arms frantically, yelling that a suspect was armed and a robbery just took place. The witness pointed at a male victim who was holding his baby standing on the side of the road. The officer immediately turned around and was directed by multiple neighbors in the direction of where the suspect drove away. The officer continued driving and observed a blue Ford Crown Victoria parked halfway on the sidewalk which had crashed into a chain link fence. The vehicle was abandoned with the driver's door open. As he drove up closer, he observed the suspect jumping over a six foot fence. As the officer was driving, he requested for assistance and a perimeter was set. He observed the suspect running while wearing a black hoodie and black pants. Officers chased him through a residence, many yards, and jumped many fences until they were able to get the suspect in custody. The victim from earlier told police that he drove to a specific address to pick up his child. When he left, he said he was holding his child and a car seat. As he was placing the car seat in the back seat of his car, the suspect approached him with his hoodie pulled over his head. The suspect pointed a black handgun with an extended magazine at him and yelled "Give that **** up". The victim took out his keys and cash and threw it on the ground. He then ran from the suspect. A witness said she watched the suspect from her home. She said the suspect approached the victim by "creeping" up on the victim as he pulled his hoodie over his head (she thought this was strange due to the temperature outside). She said she saw the suspect demand the victim of his belongings and the victim emptied his pockets while yelling "Don't hurt my baby!" She observed the victim run away from the suspect and then saw the suspect get away in the victim's vehicle. After an investigation of the area, an officer found the suspect's gun, a black Smith and Wesson with a 30 round magazine, behind a garage under a bucket. Further investigation of the gun revealed it was stolen in 2008 during a residential burglary. 23-year-old Ali Lamont Perkins was arrested and charged with armed carjacking and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. Perkins has been arrested many times in the past and have been charged with multiple felonies. Ali Perkins
