The Armstrongs were walking with family members in St. Augustine bank parking lot when the incident occurred. Rosa Lee died on the scene while Shaina, who was involved in a relationship with Jackson, was taken to hospital. Investigators say that Shaina and Jackson had been in an argument for most of the day. Jackson was charged with one count of second degree murder with a deadly weapon and one count of attempted second degree murder with a deadly weapon and booked into the county jail. An autopsy found that 28 year-old Malcolm Shabazz died of blows to the head, face and torso. The grandson of civil rights activist Malcolm X was allegedly beaten, punched, kicked and beaten with a bat or a stick by two waiters who had served him earlier in the night he was sent to hospital. The incident occurred in Mexico City. Shabazz's friend, Miguel Suarez, told police that they had a dozen beers and were told by the waiters to pay a tab of 15,000 pesos ($1,200) and attacked them. Suarez added that the employees of the bar also ripped out security cameras and closed the establishment around the time the ambulance arrived. The owner of the bar is said to have not yet spoken to police and could himself be charged with covering up a crime if the allegations are correct. Malcolm Shabazz spent time in prison for the death of his grandmother, Betty Shabazz, who died in a fire.Ocneqo"Z‘u"Itcpfuqp Dgcvgp"Vq"Fgcvj"UKZ"DUGE"ITCFU"OCMG"LCZ"DK\"LQWTPCN)U 4235"VQR"62"OKPQTKV["DWUKPGUU"NKUVRanking businesses in Jacksonville by annual revenue for their Book of Lists, the Jacksonville Business Journal recognized Jacksonville's 2013 Top 40 Minority-Owned Businesses at a Diversity Awards Luncheon on May 2.

At present, there are 1,500 babies in the current Jacksonville Head start Program Pastor R. L. Gundy, SCLC Jacksonville, and Florida is said to have spoken directly to Ms. Sue Allan Hixon in her office on May 14, 2013 where it is claimed that she stated she could not share the safety concerns with him. When asked how many teachers she had with Associate Degrees in Headstart, she stated she cannot share that information either.Ž She further stated, as it relates to safety issues we had to get that from Washington, DC Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. Upon contacting that office by telephone and email and speaking with the Director of this area programs for Headstart, We discovered there were no major safety infractions based on information provided from HHS Administration of Children and Services that can justify closing all these facilities down and putting 1500 babies on the streets with no place to go. Pastor Gundy and his organization is encouraging the public to call 1-2028572/841-8432/205-5782 or Ms. Hixon 1-970-759-0568 and ask them for the safety violations that require the closing of these facilities. A press statement read: We are also urging the following actions be taken immediately by CDI Inc and the community. 1.The decision to close these facilities be suspended and all small safety infractions be repaired immediately and students remain in school for at least the next 3 weeks. 2.That CDI Inc. release their inspections of facilities specifically to any landlords and they be given an opportunity to fix any concerns before you move to close sites, and put parents in jeopardy of losing their jobs and being forced to find sitters for these very young children in one week.. 3.That CDI Inc. contacts the federal agency authority and asks for immediate authorization to repair any minor discrepancies that are safety violations and keep the youth in school at least for the next three weeks. They certainly have the money to do so especially if it is an emergency. 4.That CDI Inc. conducts a community meeting to express their real concerns, seek mediation of the problems, and reconsider the Headstart program remaining upon this summer. 5.Under public records law, we request all documents pertaining to the decisions to take over the Headstart Program in Jacksonville and all inspections result that pertain to their be released before decision before Friday. 6.We urge all parents who have youth in the Headstart Program to sign and submit the petitions to keep the facilities open until full disclosure is provided as long as there is not eminent danger that would cause lost of life, limb, sight, or legs.Ž Uqog"3.722"Ejknftgp"Kp"Pggf Qh"Ectg"kh"Nqecn"Jgcfuvctv" Hceknkvkgu"ctg"Enqugf Iqurgn"Ukpigtu"Vgco"Wr Vq"Tckug"Hwpfu"Hqt Mkpiuncpf"Vggp‘u" Ogfkecn"GzrgpuguSEE PAGE 8 Ocneqno"Ujcdc||."4:

Forty years; four decades of faithful service, sacrificial leadership and unparalleled devotion to God and His people; forty years!!!!! What are Brother McClendon's feelings regarding all the buzz and activities of the celebration? What was the beginning of his career? What is his great gift? What has been the ups and downs? What brings him joy? What are his plans for the future? Brother McClendon welcomes this conversation with me. and greets me as I entered his office; smiling, warm and as always meticulously groomed. Brother McClendonstarted his conversation by stating how are you in the humble and underserving manner he feels in the swirl of preparing for this celebration. He states "All the praise and glory belongs to God---God did it all!!!! I have always and will continue to focus everything on God. Northside was my first full-time work as a minister. I was uncertain and nervous. l adopted the prayer Solomon used in asking God to give him the wisdom to lead His people. My foundation is the Bible: I have always practiced what the Bible teaches because it works.Ž The four basic principles I use are: love, unity, evangelism and training-the same divine plan used by Jesus----loving, sharing and caring for and with God's people. One of the great gifts and talent Brother McClendon has been blessed with is his teaching ability. As a result of his phenomenal teaching skills he has earned tbe distinction of becoming one of the most sought after ministers in the country. He has written and produced workshops on the Practical Studies for New Converts. This publication is currently being used by congregations of the Lords' church worldwide. The ministry of evangelism has led him to preach in more than thirty states not excluding Trinidad, the Bahamas, Haiti, and Jamaica. During the forty years of his ministry Brother McClendon has been directly responsible for baptizing over Twenty Thousand people. When asked regarding the ups and downs, disappointments and joys of forty years of ministry, Brother McClendon replied "it bothers me when people do not love and care for each other and fail to obey God". Joy comes from helping the downtrodden people that feel washed up and want to give up on life. The restorative power of love, caring and the knowledge of Jesus works miracles in any life.Ž The other greatest honor and joy of Brother McClendons' life is being married to Ida his wife of fifty-five years. The sacrificial love and support she and their five children have given made it possible to work, travel and fully devote the time and talent to God's work. So after forty years, four decades, what are the future plans for Brother McClendon? What's next on his agenda? He answered, "If God allows, I want to continue my mantra of saving souls and keeping souls saved"; completion of a second edition of the Practical Studies for New Converts, continue counseling, mentoring young ministers of the brotherhood and begin writing my memoirs. A main priority on Brother McClendons' to do list is seeking out and interviewing qualified ministers to assume the primary preaching responsibility at Northside; someone that possesses the energy, enthusiasm, and a sincere love for God and His people; a man that can lead the congregation to the next level. Brother McClendon states I feel very blessed and honored that God chose me for His great work!" Forty years, four decades of faithful service, sacrificial leadership, and unparalleled devotion to God and His people.Ukz""Eqpvkpwgf"htqo"3 While congratulating Annie Wilson following the Diversity Luncheon, BSECs Executive Director Jackie Perry pointed out that this year marks the tenth anniversary of the business incubator, which was originally conceived and founded by FreshMinistries, one of the 2013 Diversity Award Winners. Since FreshMinistries built our business incubator in 2003, weve created more than 2,050 jobs and had a $250 Million-plus impact on the economy of Jacksonville,Ž Perry said. I would estimate that, together, these six companies who are on the Top 40 List this year have created over 500 jobs. Thanks to their hard work and our incubator support, these businesses are now free-standing, sustainable companies and consistent list-makers!Ž These days when jobs are at a premium, research has revealed that business incubators are one of the least expensive and most effective job creation mechanisms. In recent studies conducted by the National Business Incubation Association (NBIA) and the U.S. Department of Commerces Economic Development Administration, publicly supported incubators created jobs at a cost of about $1,100 each, while other publicly supported job creation mechanisms cost more than $10,000 per job created. Annie Wilson Homecare, Inc. began headquartering at BSEC in 2004 and was recognized in 2011 by the Jacksonville Business Journal as one of Jacksonvilles Top Ten Homecare Services. At that time, the company had revenues of $481,000 and a staff of twenty. Both our revenues and our staff have grown since then,Ž said Wilson, and Im grateful that Beaver Street Enterprise Center has nurtured this company all along the way.Ž

Welcome.(Photographs are courtesy of Joyce Frink) Sharif and Dania (Wright) Frink were married April 20, 2013 at the luxurious Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa, Negril, Jamaica. Danias sister Deidre Wright was matron of honor. Sharif was attended by his best man, Michael Graham. Dania is the daughter of Karl and Soraya Wright of Hayward, California. She is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles with a B.A. in Animation/Studio Arts, and is currently studying for the Master of Public Administration degree at University of San Francisco. She is employed at East Oakland Youth Development Center as Communications Director. Sharif is the son of Neil and Joyce Frink of Fernandina Beach, Florida. He graduated from Florida A & M University with a major in communications and an MBA from Golden Gate University. He is employed at California Telephone Access Program. The couple met in 2007 at the Art & Soul Oakland Festival when Sharif stopped by Danias booth to inquire about her artwork for sale. That was the start of a friendship which blossomed over the years and led to a first date in 2011, when they attended the opening reception of the Textured Rhythms Exhibition at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), followed by dinner and drinks at The View, the San Francisco Marriott Marquis rooftopŽ bar and restaurant located on the hotels 39th floor with sweeping views of the city. What a first date! Note:Im not a big fan of romance novels, but I am loving this real life tale of friendship turned to love. Excuse me while I swoon! Obviously the brotha was not going to let another four years go by as justŽ friends because on June 1, 2012 Sharif proposed to Dania at the Casanova, an establishment billed as the most romantic restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea (and boasts of housing an original table at which artist Vincent Van Gogh often dined). Note:I feel a double swoon coming on! Wait! Theres more. Read what the newlyweds have to say about their love for each other: Dania on why she loves Sharif: He is fiercely loyal, fascinatingly intelligent, blush-inducingly gorgeous, endlessly supportive, and unabashedly courageous... he is my knight in shining armor.Ž Sharif on why he loves Dania: She is the beautiful woman I thought Id never meet, dynamic, artistic, nurturing, intelligent, and sexy as a ___!!!Ž Note: OMG! Swoon, swoon, swoon! Ive got the vapors. The couple decided on a destination wedding to the village of Negril Beach, Jamaica known for its laid back atmosphere, white sand beaches, rugged diving cliffs, and breath taking sunsets. The enchanting resort where they married and honeymooned, Sandals Negril Beach, is an adults only all-inclusive resort, which includes all of the amenities that are usually ala carte at most hotels, such as dining (boasts 7 restaurants), drinks, water sports, golfing, entertainment, tips, taxes, privileges at other Sandals resorts on the island, and more. So, with the beautiful Caribbean as a backdrop and surrounded by a host of family and friends, the handsome young couple said I doŽ and in the way of the ancestors, jumped the broom to seal their commitment. The couple resides in Hayward, California. Sharifs east coast family who attended were: aunt Charlene Frink Alexandria, Virginia and cousins Amber Speights Washington, D.C., Michele Alston Atlanta, and Miriam Traeye Fernandina Beach, Florida. The Jacksonville crew was made up of: cousins Stephanie and Bianca Speights Zack Rose and Henry and Sharon Sellers the grooms uncle and aunt. Congratulations, Dania and Sharif.

Man Attacks Pregnant Sister and 4-Year-Old During Family Dinner A man was arrested after attacking his sister and a 4-yearold family member. According to records, 26-year-old Tory Wright was eating dinner with his sister and other family members at a home. Wrights sister told police that after dinner, Wright hit the 4-yearold boy in the stomach with his fist. That triggered a verbal argument, which turned physical. Wrights sister stated that he pushed her twice and hit her in the face. While trying to collect her belonging to leave, Wright threw her items outside. Wright has been living with his sister for the last two to three weeks. His sisters right eye was said to have redness around it and she was also eight months pregnant. When speaking with the 4-year-old, he said that he was punched in the stomach, which caused him to fall on the floor. He said it made him cry and put him in pain. When speaking with Wright himself, he stated that he and his sister got into an argument and he told her and other family members to leave the house. He then said that his sisters boyfriend intervened and they started wrestling on the ground. He said his sister also jumped on top him. Wright denied hitting anyone and said that he was the victim. Police said he had abrasions on both of his knees from rolling on the ground. According to many other witnesses, Wright was not a victim and was the one who attacked family members. Wright was arrested and charged with battery, felony child abuse, and aggravated battery on pregnant victim. Police Track Down Stalker A man was tracked down after reports of multiple phone calls and threats. Police say that the victim indicated she received numerous calls and texts from 41-yearold Brian Campbell. She said he had repeatedly called her and left her voice mail messages demanding money and even threatening to kill her. Police attempted to make contact with Campbell at a motel, but when he saw police he refused to open the door and would not exit the room. As a precaution, the motel was evacuated and negotiators and SWAT team members were called in to assist. At approximately 7:00 a.m., negotiators were able to talk Campbell out of the room. He was arrested without incident. Campbell was charged with aggravated stalking. He was later released. Campbell has a history of domestic violence and has previously been arrested for violating domestic violence injunctions against the victim.

Nearly one in 12 women and one in 45 men are stalked at least once in their lifetime. It is estimated that more than a million women and nearly half a million men are stalked in the United States each year. The overwhelming majority (78 percent) of victims are women, and the majority of offenders (87 percent) are men. Most victims know their stalkers. Even though we often hear reports of fans stalking celebrities, survey evidence indicates that fewer than a quarter of female victims and a third of male victims are stalked by strangers. Nearly 60 percent of female victims and 30 percent of male victims are stalked by current or former intimate partners. In intimate-partner cases, fewer than half of stalking incidents occur after the relationship ends. Most of the time, the stalking occurs during the relationship. Stalking often includes: € Assaulting the victim € Violating protective orders Sexually assaulting the victim €Vandalizing the victims property €Burglarizing the victims home or otherwise stealing from the victim €Threatening the victim €Killing the victims pet(s) Other common stalking behaviors include: €Sending the victim cards or gifts €Leaving telephone or e-mail messages for the victim €Disclosing to the victim personal information the offender has uncovered about him or her €Disseminating personal information about the victim to others €Following the victim €Visiting the victim at work €Waiting outside the victims home €Sending the victim photographs taken of him or her without consent €Monitoring the victims internet history and computer usage €Using technology to gather images of or information about the victim If you think you're being stalked, consider these steps: € File a complaint with the police. Make sure to tell them about all threats. € If you are in immediate danger, find a safe place to go, like a police station, friend's house, domestic violence shelter, fire station, or public area. If you can't get out of danger, but can get to a phone, call 911 € Get a restraining order. A restraining order requires the stalker to stay away from you and not contact you. You can learn how to get a restraining order from a domestic violence shelter, the police, or an attorney in your area € Write down every incident. Include the time, date, and other important information € Keep evidence such as videotapes, voicemail messages, photos of property damage, and letters. Get names of witnesses € Carry a cellphone at all times so you can call for help € Secure your home with alarms, locks, and motion-sensitive lights Safety Man Steals Car from 88-Year-OldWoman An 88-year-old female victim pulled up to a gas pump to get gas. The suspect, 34-year-old Christopher Trulock, approached the victim and said that she had a nail in her tire. When the victim walked back to look at her tire, the suspect got into her vehicle and fled the scene. The victim called police about what had just happened and police began searching for the vehicle. When they found the vehicle abandoned, they saw Trulock jump a fence behind a building and landed in mud leaving behind shoe prints. Multiple officers responded and set up a perimeter and a search began. The suspect was apprehended by a K-9 Officer and two other officers behind a dumpster. The suspect was arrested and transported to a local hospital, due to being bitten by a police service dog. The suspect's shoes were collected and placed into the property room for evidence. He is being charged with aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing and eluding police after a crash, fleeing and eluding police, grand theft auto and driving on a suspended license. Christopher Trulock Man Who Runs Stop Sign Turns Out to be Car Thief A man was pulled over for a traffic stop and police later discovered the vehicle he was driving was stolen. Officers observed a blue Dodge Neon and followed it. As they got behind the vehicle, it pulled to the side of the road and then re-entered the travel lanes. As they were approaching an intersection, the Dodge Neon drove around a vehicle already stopped at a stop sign and ran the stop sign, while also failing to yield right of way to oncoming traffic. The officers activated the lights to conduct a traffic stop. The Dodge Neon eventually came to a stop in a parking lot. The driver attempted to exit the vehicle and the officer drew his department issued firearm. He advised the driver to stay in the vehicle and to show his hands. The driver complied and was taken into custody. He was identified as 21-year-old Sakima Bracero by his identification card. Bracero made spontaneous statements that the vehicle was his girlfriends. After further questioning, Bracero said that he found the car with the keys inside and thought the car was his. A check of the vehicles license plate revealed that it was reported stolen. A red pill was also reported found in Braceros front pants pocket after a search. At first, Bracero said that it was just candy and then said it was medicine, but did not know what kind it was. Bracero was charged with driving without a license and felony grand theft. Police say this is Braceros 4th booking. Sakima Bracero Tory Wright Brian Campbell

Blake Crowe, Commander, Marine Forces South, United States Marine Corps (USMC), presented two Jacksonville area Camp Montford Point Marines, Mr. Vincent Calhoun and Mr. Leroy Jones, Jr., with Congressional Gold Medals for their service to the nation during World War II. From 1942 through 1949, approximately 23,000 African American Marine recruits were trained at the segregated base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Camp Montford Point Marine Recruit Training Camp was located adjacent to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and was the site used to train African American Marines instead of the traditional boot camps in Parris Island, South Carolina and San Diego, California. Congresswoman Corrine Brown initiated legislation to honor African Americans from Camp Montford Point with the Congressional Gold Medal. Both Congresswoman Brown and Congressman Ander Crenshaw played important roles in the passage of the legislation. President Barack Obama signed the legislation into law in November 2011.

PAGE8 THESTAR MAY 18, 2013 Camden County Comes Together To Support Sick Teen With Star Studded Gospel ConcertBy C. Palmer James A coalition of black leaders recently met at Jay's Seafood Restaurant on Gloucester St., in Brunswick, Georgia to discuss a variety of relevant issues that could result in economic independence for Blacks in the coastal Georgia community. The vital meeting was spearheaded by the progressive leadership of Rev. Zack Lyde, a renown grassroots community leader. Lyde cited three areas of concern: community development, financial literacy, and community coalition with newspapers as means to reach goals. "We have to retrain ourselves back in the mindset of Tunis Campbell," exclaimed Lyde. Campbell was arguably the most profound Black leader in the 1800's. Historians have documented the exploits of Campbell in McIntosh County, Georgia and specifically how he led a contingency of former slaves to St. Catherine's Island to establish an independent Black colony during the 1860's. Campbell promoted self sufficiency and self preservation. Former slaves were encouraged to buy their own land and livestock. This included establishing their own farms. They were discouraged from selling to outsiders. Campbell was eventually forcefully removed from the Island and he settled in the communities of Belleville and Darien. There, he continued his practice of economic independence. This historical model serves as a blueprint for the coalition. "Reconstruction and the 1964 Economic Act, initiated by then U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, provided two opportunities to overcome poverty, said Lyde. Georgia did not apply for the federal assistance until Gov. Jimmy Carter's administration in 1973 and later implemented by Gov. George Busbee in 1974. The creation of businesses should have been the focus. It was Lyde's contention that due to socio-political actions by the government, Blacks became economically dependent and consequently, impoverished. However, the economic coalition believes that partnership with the Pinova Corporation, because of its role in the Brunswick community, will manifest the goal of economic self sufficiency. The group will also utilize the Coastal Georgia Federal Credit Union. Members are encouraged to support this credit union by opening accounts. This opens the doors for investment and loan opportunities. "The Tunis Campbell -Septima Clark Freedom School was the impetus for all of this," stated Lyde, as coalition members enthusiastically filed out the black owned restaurant to open accounts at the credit union with the hopes of bringing Black economics back in vogue for the 21st century.

Tiger Woods earned his 78th career victory with his second PLAYERSwin at Sawgrass, closing with a 2-under 70 to win by two shots over David Lingmerth, Jeff Maggert and Kevin Streelman. It marked the fourth win of the year for the No. 1-ranked Woods and the 78th PGA TOUR victory of his career, second only to Sam Snead with 82. Tiger has now prevailed on his 100th, 200th and 300th career starts on the PGA TOUR. "We just go out there and play," Woods said. "I had an opportunity to win the golf tournament when I was tied for the lead today, and I thought I handled the situation well and really played well today when I really needed to. And that's something I'm excited about it."

Denard Robinson is fast. 2. The Jaguars are, too. Theres so much speed out there, its amazing,Ž Jones-Drew said Monday after the first of 10 organized team activities scheduled at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness practice fields in May and June. Jones-Drew, the Jaguars three-time Pro Bowl running back, said that makes this an exciting time to be around the Jaguars, and he also said hell be heavily involved come training camp. Jones-Drew, the NFLs leading rusher in 2012, missed 10 games last season with a foot injury, rushing for 414 yards on 86 carries and finishing the season on injured reserve. He underwent surgery in December, and said Monday he expects to be ready to train fully in June, a month and a half before training camp begins in late July. Ill be training before training camp,Ž he said. Jones-Drew, who has been in Jacksonville since before the teams voluntary offseason program began, attended practice Monday. He said he ran three-quarter speed for about 30 yards Monday, and is working toward being able to work every day. Thats just part of the process,Ž he said. Jones-Drew said he is impressed with the speed of not only Robinson, a quarterback at Michigan who is expected to play a reserve running back role, but of the entire Jaguars roster. Its good to see we have more talent,Ž he said. We have an opportunity to do some great things this year.Ž Tiger Woods celebrates another win.

See where they ranked.Jackie Robinson Biopic Makes History By Arthia Nixon Jackie Robinson is making history again. The film 42 which chronicles Robinson who landed in the history books as the first African-American to play Major League Baseball earned the coveted spot as the best premiere for a baseball-themed film in Hollywood history. The film earned an estimated $27.3 million for its opening weekend, cinching the top spot to be the number one movie in America when it opened. The film has a Georgia connection with scenes shot in Macon and in Paulding County at Atlanta Film Studios. Growing up in a home with a sports enthusiast for a father baseball movies like Field of Dreams, Major League and Angels In The Outfield were among the many sports flicks in our family home collection, with A League of Their Own being my personal favorite. However, it was watching 42 with my own child that gave me a sense of pride to see that the other movies lacked. Yes, there were one or two historical inaccuracies but a pivotal moments when Chadwick Boseman seems to channel what many imagine Robinson must have felt in trying to control his temper while dealing with the harsh realities of racism in an era many of todays youth cant imagine was a harsh reality for their grandparents. Whether you enjoy sports or simply want a crash course in Black history, the film is a must have, simply for the inspirational message it lends and the persevering attitude portrayed by the lead actor. Chadwick Boseman pictured in a promotional photo playing Jackie Robinson wearing a replica of his number 42 Dodgers uniform. By Matt Leland Christian Yelich homered twice and Daniel Pertusati added a grand slam late as the Jacksonville Suns (21-15) beat the Mobile BayBears (19-20) by a score of 10-4 at Hank Aaron Stadium. Yelich hit the first leadoff home run of the season for Jacksonville, immediately handing the Suns a 10 lead in the first inning, and went deep again in the third inning. The Miami Marlins number two overall prospect became the second Sun to have a multi-home run game in 2013, following Marcell Ozuna's performance on April 24. The Suns' win snapped a three-game losing streak to the BayBears to open the five-game series and also gave starter Robert Morey (1-0) his first career Southern League victory. After Yelich's leadoff blast off BayBears starter Anthony Meo (0-4), Mobile erased the one-run deficit in the bottom of the first with a round-tripper of its own. Nick Evans, whose walk off home run beat Jacksonville on Tuesday evening, drove a pitch over the wall in center for his second long ball in as any at-bats to tie the game at one. In the third, however, it was once again Yelich who gave the Suns the advantage. With Morey on base after a single, Yelich hit an opposite field homer over the left field wall to make it 3-1 Jacksonville, a lead the Suns would not relinquish for the remainder of the afternoon. Yelich finished 3-for-6 with the two homers and a double. Jacksonville extended the lead to 4-1 on Audy Ciriaco's sacrifice fly later in the third, chasing Meo in the process. The Suns would maintain the three-run cushion into the seventh, when Ryan Fisher hit his first Southern League home run, a two-run shot that pushed the lead to 6-1. The win prevented what would have been Jacksonville's first four-game losing streak of the season and put an end to the Suns' longest skid against a single opponent in 2013. Suns win 10-4 over Mobile BayBears

I told my son to avoid sleeping with women that he didnt like and I told my daughter to never take money or things that money can buy from men that she didnt like. After a 23 year marriage, Im single now and oftentimes I run into women seeking a husband or a companion. I am always amazed when women, or men, seek material things or actions from a potential partner that they would refuse to share themselves. For example, I sometimes have to travel for my business and if I say I have to attend an event in Phoenix or a business meeting in Paris, France a woman that vI just met or dont really know will say to me, I want to go!Ž And dumb me will respond, OK!Ž Yes, my woman or my wife can go anywhere that I go but Im thinking a new friend will pay her own way until our relationship grows to the point where I will handle all travel costs. The point is, a man that will take you on a $5000 or $10,000 vacation either loves you or is a fool. He is not a new friend trying to impress you. Now, if a man says to that same woman I need $10,000 to buy some new equipment for my business will you co-sign on a loan for me?Ž or Will you get me an American Express card so I can by some business supplies?Ž, the woman will respond, You must be a damn foolŽ. The moral of this is no woman or man should do anything for someone they just met if that person will not do the same thing for them. If you dont know, sex, not even good sex, is worth $10,000. Love is priceless but a mere roommate, so to speak, is not that expensive. When contemplating a new relationship both partners should start off with baby stepsŽ. You should do what comes from your heart and that way you can be happy regardless of what your new friend does or does not do. Its good to marry someone with Oprah Winfrey or Bob Johnson money but its better to be with someone that loves you, wants, you, respects you, protects you and so on. Asking someone you hardly know to spend money on you is like asking someone you dont know to allow you to perform forbidden sex acts with them when you dont know their HIV status! Neither is a good idea. There are just as many male fools with money as there are female fools with bad romance. If you dont know what a good man or a good woman is, chances are youll never find one. Each of us has a soul mate out there somewhere waiting to unite with us. Keep looking for Mr. or Ms. Goodbar and dont be too quick to settle for a Nutty Buddy or a Baby Ruth! COMPUTER SERVICE

TAKE ACTION Submit a Letter to the Editor and Express Your Support for Manatee Protection Writing letters to your local newspaper is a very powerful and effective way to voice your position on manatee issues within your community. You can see a sample letter at the bottom of this page. In addition, here are some helpful tips: Keep your letter brief. Most newspapers suggest a word count of 200 words or less in a letter to the editor submission. Explain why you are writing, and express your views in your own words. Please note that you support manatee protection. If you are a boater, please include that fact. If possible, include a personal experience in your letter. Be polite and professional in the letter. Please avoid personal attacks or inappropriate language. The newspaper may not print it or will edit it considerably. Newspapers often require that you include a first and last name, regular mailing address, and a daytime phone number where you can be reached if they wish to confirm your authorship of the letter. If you are sending e-mail, include a short description of the topic in the subject box. Start your e-mail with a salutation, such as "Dear Letters Editor." Finish your e-mail with a close such as, "Sincerely," and remember to include your name, address, and daytime phone number.

The Armstrongs were walking with family members in St. Augustine bank parking lot when the incident occurred. Rosa Lee died on the scene while Shaina, who was involved in a relationship with Jackson, was taken to hospital. Investigators say that Shaina and Jackson had been in an argument for most of the day. Jackson was charged with one count of second degree murder with a deadly weapon and one count of attempted second degree murder with a deadly weapon and booked into the county jail. An autopsy found that 28 year-old Malcolm Shabazz died of blows to the head, face and torso. The grandson of civil rights activist Malcolm X was allegedly beaten, punched, kicked and beaten with a bat or a stick by two waiters who had served him earlier in the night he was sent to hospital. The incident occurred in Mexico City. Shabazz's friend, Miguel Suarez, told police that they had a dozen beers and were told by the waiters to pay a tab of 15,000 pesos ($1,200) and attacked them. Suarez added that the employees of the bar also ripped out security cameras and closed the establishment around the time the ambulance arrived. The owner of the bar is said to have not yet spoken to police and could himself be charged with covering up a crime if the allegations are correct. Malcolm Shabazz spent time in prison for the death of his grandmother, Betty Shabazz, who died in a fire.Ocneqo"Zu"Itcpfuqp Dgcvgp"Vq"Fgcvj"UKZ"DUGE"ITCFU"OCMG"LCZ"DK\"LQWTPCN)U 4235"VQR"62"OKPQTKV["DWUKPGUU"NKUVRanking businesses in Jacksonville by annual revenue for their Book of Lists, the Jacksonville Business Journal recognized Jacksonville's 2013 Top 40 Minority-Owned Businesses at a Diversity Awards Luncheon on May 2.

At present, there are 1,500 babies in the current Jacksonville Head start Program Pastor R. L. Gundy, SCLC Jacksonville, and Florida is said to have spoken directly to Ms. Sue Allan Hixon in her office on May 14, 2013 where it is claimed that she stated she could not share the safety concerns with him. When asked how many teachers she had with Associate Degrees in Headstart, she stated she cannot share that information either. She further stated, as it relates to safety issues we had to get that from Washington, DC Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. Upon contacting that office by telephone and email and speaking with the Director of this area programs for Headstart, We discovered there were no major safety infractions based on information provided from HHS Administration of Children and Services that can justify closing all these facilities down and putting 1500 babies on the streets with no place to go. Pastor Gundy and his organization is encouraging the public to call 1-2028572/841-8432/205-5782 or Ms. Hixon 1-970-759-0568 and ask them for the safety violations that require the closing of these facilities. A press statement read: We are also urging the following actions be taken immediately by CDI Inc and the community. 1.The decision to close these facilities be suspended and all small safety infractions be repaired immediately and students remain in school for at least the next 3 weeks. 2.That CDI Inc. release their inspections of facilities specifically to any landlords and they be given an opportunity to fix any concerns before you move to close sites, and put parents in jeopardy of losing their jobs and being forced to find sitters for these very young children in one week.. 3.That CDI Inc. contacts the federal agency authority and asks for immediate authorization to repair any minor discrepancies that are safety violations and keep the youth in school at least for the next three weeks. They certainly have the money to do so especially if it is an emergency. 4.That CDI Inc. conducts a community meeting to express their real concerns, seek mediation of the problems, and reconsider the Headstart program remaining upon this summer. 5.Under public records law, we request all documents pertaining to the decisions to take over the Headstart Program in Jacksonville and all inspections result that pertain to their be released before decision before Friday. 6.We urge all parents who have youth in the Headstart Program to sign and submit the petitions to keep the facilities open until full disclosure is provided as long as there is not eminent danger that would cause lost of life, limb, sight, or legs.

Forty years; four decades of faithful service, sacrificial leadership and unparalleled devotion to God and His people; forty years!!!!! What are Brother McClendon's feelings regarding all the buzz and activities of the celebration? What was the beginning of his career? What is his great gift? What has been the ups and downs? What brings him joy? What are his plans for the future? Brother McClendon welcomes this conversation with me. and greets me as I entered his office; smiling, warm and as always meticulously groomed. Brother McClendonstarted his conversation by stating how are you in the humble and underserving manner he feels in the swirl of preparing for this celebration. He states "All the praise and glory belongs to God---God did it all!!!! I have always and will continue to focus everything on God. Northside was my first full-time work as a minister. I was uncertain and nervous. l adopted the prayer Solomon used in asking God to give him the wisdom to lead His people. My foundation is the Bible: I have always practiced what the Bible teaches because it works. The four basic principles I use are: love, unity, evangelism and training-the same divine plan used by Jesus----loving, sharing and caring for and with God's people. One of the great gifts and talent Brother McClendon has been blessed with is his teaching ability. As a result of his phenomenal teaching skills he has earned tbe distinction of becoming one of the most sought after ministers in the country. He has written and produced workshops on the Practical Studies for New Converts. This publication is currently being used by congregations of the Lords' church worldwide. The ministry of evangelism has led him to preach in more than thirty states not excluding Trinidad, the Bahamas, Haiti, and Jamaica. During the forty years of his ministry Brother McClendon has been directly responsible for baptizing over Twenty Thousand people. When asked regarding the ups and downs, disappointments and joys of forty years of ministry, Brother McClendon replied "it bothers me when people do not love and care for each other and fail to obey God". Joy comes from helping the downtrodden people that feel washed up and want to give up on life. The restorative power of love, caring and the knowledge of Jesus works miracles in any life. The other greatest honor and joy of Brother McClendons' life is being married to Ida his wife of fifty-five years. The sacrificial love and support she and their five children have given made it possible to work, travel and fully devote the time and talent to God's work. So after forty years, four decades, what are the future plans for Brother McClendon? What's next on his agenda? He answered, "If God allows, I want to continue my mantra of saving souls and keeping souls saved"; completion of a second edition of the Practical Studies for New Converts, continue counseling, mentoring young ministers of the brotherhood and begin writing my memoirs. A main priority on Brother McClendons' to do list is seeking out and interviewing qualified ministers to assume the primary preaching responsibility at Northside; someone that possesses the energy, enthusiasm, and a sincere love for God and His people; a man that can lead the congregation to the next level. Brother McClendon states I feel very blessed and honored that God chose me for His great work!" Forty years, four decades of faithful service, sacrificial leadership, and unparalleled devotion to God and His people.Ukz""Eqpvkpwgf"htqo"3 While congratulating Annie Wilson following the Diversity Luncheon, BSECs Executive Director Jackie Perry pointed out that this year marks the tenth anniversary of the business incubator, which was originally conceived and founded by FreshMinistries, one of the 2013 Diversity Award Winners. Since FreshMinistries built our business incubator in 2003, weve created more than 2,050 jobs and had a $250 Million-plus impact on the economy of Jacksonville, Perry said. I would estimate that, together, these six companies who are on the Top 40 List this year have created over 500 jobs. Thanks to their hard work and our incubator support, these businesses are now free-standing, sustainable companies and consistent list-makers! These days when jobs are at a premium, research has revealed that business incubators are one of the least expensive and most effective job creation mechanisms. In recent studies conducted by the National Business Incubation Association (NBIA) and the U.S. Department of Commerces Economic Development Administration, publicly supported incubators created jobs at a cost of about $1,100 each, while other publicly supported job creation mechanisms cost more than $10,000 per job created. Annie Wilson Homecare, Inc. began headquartering at BSEC in 2004 and was recognized in 2011 by the Jacksonville Business Journal as one of Jacksonvilles Top Ten Homecare Services. At that time, the company had revenues of $481,000 and a staff of twenty. Both our revenues and our staff have grown since then, said Wilson, and Im grateful that Beaver Street Enterprise Center has nurtured this company all along the way.

Welcome.(Photographs are courtesy of Joyce Frink) Sharif and Dania (Wright) Frink were married April 20, 2013 at the luxurious Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa, Negril, Jamaica. Danias sister Deidre Wright was matron of honor. Sharif was attended by his best man, Michael Graham. Dania is the daughter of Karl and Soraya Wright of Hayward, California. She is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles with a B.A. in Animation/Studio Arts, and is currently studying for the Master of Public Administration degree at University of San Francisco. She is employed at East Oakland Youth Development Center as Communications Director. Sharif is the son of Neil and Joyce Frink of Fernandina Beach, Florida. He graduated from Florida A & M University with a major in communications and an MBA from Golden Gate University. He is employed at California Telephone Access Program. The couple met in 2007 at the Art & Soul Oakland Festival when Sharif stopped by Danias booth to inquire about her artwork for sale. That was the start of a friendship which blossomed over the years and led to a first date in 2011, when they attended the opening reception of the Textured Rhythms Exhibition at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), followed by dinner and drinks at The View, the San Francisco Marriott Marquis rooftop bar and restaurant located on the hotels 39th floor with sweeping views of the city. What a first date! Note:Im not a big fan of romance novels, but I am loving this real life tale of friendship turned to love. Excuse me while I swoon! Obviously the brotha was not going to let another four years go by as just friends because on June 1, 2012 Sharif proposed to Dania at the Casanova, an establishment billed as the most romantic restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea (and boasts of housing an original table at which artist Vincent Van Gogh often dined). Note:I feel a double swoon coming on! Wait! Theres more. Read what the newlyweds have to say about their love for each other: Dania on why she loves Sharif: He is fiercely loyal, fascinatingly intelligent, blush-inducingly gorgeous, endlessly supportive, and unabashedly courageous... he is my knight in shining armor. Sharif on why he loves Dania: She is the beautiful woman I thought Id never meet, dynamic, artistic, nurturing, intelligent, and sexy as a ___!!! Note: OMG! Swoon, swoon, swoon! Ive got the vapors. The couple decided on a destination wedding to the village of Negril Beach, Jamaica known for its laid back atmosphere, white sand beaches, rugged diving cliffs, and breath taking sunsets. The enchanting resort where they married and honeymooned, Sandals Negril Beach, is an adults only all-inclusive resort, which includes all of the amenities that are usually ala carte at most hotels, such as dining (boasts 7 restaurants), drinks, water sports, golfing, entertainment, tips, taxes, privileges at other Sandals resorts on the island, and more. So, with the beautiful Caribbean as a backdrop and surrounded by a host of family and friends, the handsome young couple said I do and in the way of the ancestors, jumped the broom to seal their commitment. The couple resides in Hayward, California. Sharifs east coast family who attended were: aunt Charlene Frink, Alexandria, Virginia and cousins Amber Speights, Washington, D.C., Michele Alston, Atlanta, and Miriam Traeye Fernandina Beach, Florida. The Jacksonville crew was made up of: cousins Stephanie and Bianca Speights Zack Rose, and Henry and Sharon Sellers, the grooms uncle and aunt. Congratulations, Dania and Sharif.

Man Attacks Pregnant Sister and 4-Year-Old During Family Dinner A man was arrested after attacking his sister and a 4-yearold family member. According to records, 26-year-old Tory Wright was eating dinner with his sister and other family members at a home. Wrights sister told police that after dinner, Wright hit the 4-yearold boy in the stomach with his fist. That triggered a verbal argument, which turned physical. Wrights sister stated that he pushed her twice and hit her in the face. While trying to collect her belonging to leave, Wright threw her items outside. Wright has been living with his sister for the last two to three weeks. His sisters right eye was said to have redness around it and she was also eight months pregnant. When speaking with the 4-year-old, he said that he was punched in the stomach, which caused him to fall on the floor. He said it made him cry and put him in pain. When speaking with Wright himself, he stated that he and his sister got into an argument and he told her and other family members to leave the house. He then said that his sisters boyfriend intervened and they started wrestling on the ground. He said his sister also jumped on top him. Wright denied hitting anyone and said that he was the victim. Police said he had abrasions on both of his knees from rolling on the ground. According to many other witnesses, Wright was not a victim and was the one who attacked family members. Wright was arrested and charged with battery, felony child abuse, and aggravated battery on pregnant victim. Police Track Down Stalker A man was tracked down after reports of multiple phone calls and threats. Police say that the victim indicated she received numerous calls and texts from 41-yearold Brian Campbell. She said he had repeatedly called her and left her voice mail messages demanding money and even threatening to kill her. Police attempted to make contact with Campbell at a motel, but when he saw police he refused to open the door and would not exit the room. As a precaution, the motel was evacuated and negotiators and SWAT team members were called in to assist. At approximately 7:00 a.m., negotiators were able to talk Campbell out of the room. He was arrested without incident. Campbell was charged with aggravated stalking. He was later released. Campbell has a history of domestic violence and has previously been arrested for violating domestic violence injunctions against the victim.

Nearly one in 12 women and one in 45 men are stalked at least once in their lifetime. It is estimated that more than a million women and nearly half a million men are stalked in the United States each year. The overwhelming majority (78 percent) of victims are women, and the majority of offenders (87 percent) are men. Most victims know their stalkers. Even though we often hear reports of fans stalking celebrities, survey evidence indicates that fewer than a quarter of female victims and a third of male victims are stalked by strangers. Nearly 60 percent of female victims and 30 percent of male victims are stalked by current or former intimate partners. In intimate-partner cases, fewer than half of stalking incidents occur after the relationship ends. Most of the time, the stalking occurs during the relationship. Stalking often includes: Assaulting the victim Violating protective orders Sexually assaulting the victim Vandalizing the victims property Burglarizing the victims home or otherwise stealing from the victim Threatening the victim Killing the victims pet(s) Other common stalking behaviors include: Sending the victim cards or gifts Leaving telephone or e-mail messages for the victim Disclosing to the victim personal information the offender has uncovered about him or her Disseminating personal information about the victim to others Following the victim Visiting the victim at work Waiting outside the victims home Sending the victim photographs taken of him or her without consent Monitoring the victims internet history and computer usage Using technology to gather images of or information about the victim If you think you're being stalked, consider these steps: File a complaint with the police. Make sure to tell them about all threats. If you are in immediate danger, find a safe place to go, like a police station, friend's house, domestic violence shelter, fire station, or public area. If you can't get out of danger, but can get to a phone, call 911 Get a restraining order. A restraining order requires the stalker to stay away from you and not contact you. You can learn how to get a restraining order from a domestic violence shelter, the police, or an attorney in your area Write down every incident. Include the time, date, and other important information Keep evidence such as videotapes, voicemail messages, photos of property damage, and letters. Get names of witnesses Carry a cellphone at all times so you can call for help Secure your home with alarms, locks, and motion-sensitive lights Safety Man Steals Car from 88-Year-OldWoman An 88-year-old female victim pulled up to a gas pump to get gas. The suspect, 34-year-old Christopher Trulock, approached the victim and said that she had a nail in her tire. When the victim walked back to look at her tire, the suspect got into her vehicle and fled the scene. The victim called police about what had just happened and police began searching for the vehicle. When they found the vehicle abandoned, they saw Trulock jump a fence behind a building and landed in mud leaving behind shoe prints. Multiple officers responded and set up a perimeter and a search began. The suspect was apprehended by a K-9 Officer and two other officers behind a dumpster. The suspect was arrested and transported to a local hospital, due to being bitten by a police service dog. The suspect's shoes were collected and placed into the property room for evidence. He is being charged with aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing and eluding police after a crash, fleeing and eluding police, grand theft auto and driving on a suspended license. Christopher Trulock Man Who Runs Stop Sign Turns Out to be Car Thief A man was pulled over for a traffic stop and police later discovered the vehicle he was driving was stolen. Officers observed a blue Dodge Neon and followed it. As they got behind the vehicle, it pulled to the side of the road and then re-entered the travel lanes. As they were approaching an intersection, the Dodge Neon drove around a vehicle already stopped at a stop sign and ran the stop sign, while also failing to yield right of way to oncoming traffic. The officers activated the lights to conduct a traffic stop. The Dodge Neon eventually came to a stop in a parking lot. The driver attempted to exit the vehicle and the officer drew his department issued firearm. He advised the driver to stay in the vehicle and to show his hands. The driver complied and was taken into custody. He was identified as 21-year-old Sakima Bracero by his identification card. Bracero made spontaneous statements that the vehicle was his girlfriends. After further questioning, Bracero said that he found the car with the keys inside and thought the car was his. A check of the vehicles license plate revealed that it was reported stolen. A red pill was also reported found in Braceros front pants pocket after a search. At first, Bracero said that it was just candy and then said it was medicine, but did not know what kind it was. Bracero was charged with driving without a license and felony grand theft. Police say this is Braceros 4th booking. Sakima Bracero Tory Wright Brian Campbell

Blake Crowe, Commander, Marine Forces South, United States Marine Corps (USMC), presented two Jacksonville area Camp Montford Point Marines, Mr. Vincent Calhoun and Mr. Leroy Jones, Jr., with Congressional Gold Medals for their service to the nation during World War II. From 1942 through 1949, approximately 23,000 African American Marine recruits were trained at the segregated base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Camp Montford Point Marine Recruit Training Camp was located adjacent to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and was the site used to train African American Marines instead of the traditional boot camps in Parris Island, South Carolina and San Diego, California. Congresswoman Corrine Brown initiated legislation to honor African Americans from Camp Montford Point with the Congressional Gold Medal. Both Congresswoman Brown and Congressman Ander Crenshaw played important roles in the passage of the legislation. President Barack Obama signed the legislation into law in November 2011.

PAGE THESTAR MAY 18, 2013 Camden County Comes Together To Support Sick Teen With Star Studded Gospel ConcertBy C. Palmer James A coalition of black leaders recently met at Jay's Seafood Restaurant on Gloucester St., in Brunswick, Georgia to discuss a variety of relevant issues that could result in economic independence for Blacks in the coastal Georgia community. The vital meeting was spearheaded by the progressive leadership of Rev. Zack Lyde, a renown grassroots community leader. Lyde cited three areas of concern: community development, financial literacy, and community coalition with newspapers as means to reach goals. "We have to retrain ourselves back in the mindset of Tunis Campbell," exclaimed Lyde. Campbell was arguably the most profound Black leader in the 1800's. Historians have documented the exploits of Campbell in McIntosh County, Georgia and specifically how he led a contingency of former slaves to St. Catherine's Island to establish an independent Black colony during the 1860's. Campbell promoted self sufficiency and self preservation. Former slaves were encouraged to buy their own land and livestock. This included establishing their own farms. They were discouraged from selling to outsiders. Campbell was eventually forcefully removed from the Island and he settled in the communities of Belleville and Darien. There, he continued his practice of economic independence. This historical model serves as a blueprint for the coalition. "Reconstruction and the 1964 Economic Act, initiated by then U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, provided two opportunities to overcome poverty, said Lyde. Georgia did not apply for the federal assistance until Gov. Jimmy Carter's administration in 1973 and later implemented by Gov. George Busbee in 1974. The creation of businesses should have been the focus. It was Lyde's contention that due to socio-political actions by the government, Blacks became economically dependent and consequently, impoverished. However, the economic coalition believes that partnership with the Pinova Corporation, because of its role in the Brunswick community, will manifest the goal of economic self sufficiency. The group will also utilize the Coastal Georgia Federal Credit Union. Members are encouraged to support this credit union by opening accounts. This opens the doors for investment and loan opportunities. "The Tunis Campbell -Septima Clark Freedom School was the impetus for all of this," stated Lyde, as coalition members enthusiastically filed out the black owned restaurant to open accounts at the credit union with the hopes of bringing Black economics back in vogue for the 21st century.

Tiger Woods earned his 78th career victory with his second PLAYERSwin at Sawgrass, closing with a 2-under 70 to win by two shots over David Lingmerth, Jeff Maggert and Kevin Streelman. It marked the fourth win of the year for the No. 1-ranked Woods and the 78th PGA TOUR victory of his career, second only to Sam Snead with 82. Tiger has now prevailed on his 100th, 200th and 300th career starts on the PGA TOUR. "We just go out there and play," Woods said. "I had an opportunity to win the golf tournament when I was tied for the lead today, and I thought I handled the situation well and really played well today when I really needed to. And that's something I'm excited about it." Tiger claims second career PLAYERS winMAY 18, 2013 THESTAR PAGEHIGHESTEARNINGSPORTSSTARS Jaguars RB Maurice JonesDrew says hell be training before training campJohn Oehser Jaguars.com From his view, Maurice Jones-Drew said a couple of things at Jaguars organized team activities are clear: 1. Denard Robinson is fast. 2. The Jaguars are, too. Theres so much speed out there, its amazing, Jones-Drew said Monday after the first of 10 organized team activities scheduled at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness practice fields in May and June. Jones-Drew, the Jaguars three-time Pro Bowl running back, said that makes this an exciting time to be around the Jaguars, and he also said hell be heavily involved come training camp. Jones-Drew, the NFLs leading rusher in 2012, missed 10 games last season with a foot injury, rushing for 414 yards on 86 carries and finishing the season on injured reserve. He underwent surgery in December, and said Monday he expects to be ready to train fully in June, a month and a half before training camp begins in late July. Ill be training before training camp, he said. Jones-Drew, who has been in Jacksonville since before the teams voluntary offseason program began, attended practice Monday. He said he ran three-quarter speed for about 30 yards Monday, and is working toward being able to work every day. Thats just part of the process, he said. Jones-Drew said he is impressed with the speed of not only Robinson, a quarterback at Michigan who is expected to play a reserve running back role, but of the entire Jaguars roster. Its good to see we have more talent, he said. We have an opportunity to do some great things this year. Tiger Woods celebrates another win. (Photos by Frank M.

See where they ranked.Jackie Robinson Biopic Makes History By Arthia Nixon Jackie Robinson is making history again. The film 42, which chronicles Robinson who landed in the history books as the first African-American to play Major League Baseball earned the coveted spot as the best premiere for a baseball-themed film in Hollywood history. The film earned an estimated $27.3 million for its opening weekend, cinching the top spot to be the number one movie in America when it opened. The film has a Georgia connection with scenes shot in Macon and in Paulding County at Atlanta Film Studios. Growing up in a home with a sports enthusiast for a father baseball movies like Field of Dreams, Major League, and Angels In The Outfield were among the many sports flicks in our family home collection, with A League of Their Own being my personal favorite. However, it was watching 42 with my own child that gave me a sense of pride to see that the other movies lacked. Yes, there were one or two historical inaccuracies but a pivotal moments when Chadwick Boseman seems to channel what many imagine Robinson must have felt in trying to control his temper while dealing with the harsh realities of racism in an era many of todays youth cant imagine was a harsh reality for their grandparents. Whether you enjoy sports or simply want a crash course in Black history, the film is a must have, simply for the inspirational message it lends and the persevering attitude portrayed by the lead actor.

Yelich hit the first leadoff home run of the season for Jacksonville, immediately handing the Suns a 10 lead in the first inning, and went deep again in the third inning. The Miami Marlins number two overall prospect became the second Sun to have a multi-home run game in 2013, following Marcell Ozuna's performance on April 24. The Suns' win snapped a three-game losing streak to the BayBears to open the five-game series and also gave starter Robert Morey (1-0) his first career Southern League victory. After Yelich's leadoff blast off BayBears starter Anthony Meo (0-4), Mobile erased the one-run deficit in the bottom of the first with a round-tripper of its own. Nick Evans, whose walk off home run beat Jacksonville on Tuesday evening, drove a pitch over the wall in center for his second long ball in as any at-bats to tie the game at one. In the third, however, it was once again Yelich who gave the Suns the advantage. With Morey on base after a single, Yelich hit an opposite field homer over the left field wall to make it 3-1 Jacksonville, a lead the Suns would not relinquish for the remainder of the afternoon. Yelich finished 3-for-6 with the two homers and a double. Jacksonville extended the lead to 4-1 on Audy Ciriaco's sacrifice fly later in the third, chasing Meo in the process. The Suns would maintain the three-run cushion into the seventh, when Ryan Fisher hit his first Southern League home run, a two-run shot that pushed the lead to 6-1. The win prevented what would have been Jacksonville's first four-game losing streak of the season and put an end to the Suns' longest skid against a single opponent in 2013. Suns win 10-4 over Mobile BayBears

I told my son to avoid sleeping with women that he didnt like and I told my daughter to never take money or things that money can buy from men that she didnt like. After a 23 year marriage, Im single now and oftentimes I run into women seeking a husband or a companion. I am always amazed when women, or men, seek material things or actions from a potential partner that they would refuse to share themselves. For example, I sometimes have to travel for my business and if I say I have to attend an event in Phoenix or a business meeting in Paris, France a woman that vI just met or dont really know will say to me, I want to go! And dumb me will respond, OK! Yes, my woman or my wife can go anywhere that I go but Im thinking a new friend will pay her own way until our relationship grows to the point where I will handle all travel costs. The point is, a man that will take you on a $5000 or $10,000 vacation either loves you or is a fool. He is not a new friend trying to impress you. Now, if a man says to that same woman I need $10,000 to buy some new equipment for my business will you co-sign on a loan for me? or Will you get me an American Express card so I can by some business supplies?, the woman will respond, You must be a damn fool. The moral of this is no woman or man should do anything for someone they just met if that person will not do the same thing for them. If you dont know, sex, not even good sex, is worth $10,000. Love is priceless but a mere roommate, so to speak, is not that expensive. When contemplating a new relationship both partners should start off with baby steps. You should do what comes from your heart and that way you can be happy regardless of what your new friend does or does not do. Its good to marry someone with Oprah Winfrey or Bob Johnson money but its better to be with someone that loves you, wants, you, respects you, protects you and so on. Asking someone you hardly know to spend money on you is like asking someone you dont know to allow you to perform forbidden sex acts with them when you dont know their HIV status! Neither is a good idea. There are just as many male fools with money as there are female fools with bad romance. If you dont know what a good man or a good woman is, chances are youll never find one. Each of us has a soul mate out there somewhere waiting to unite with us. Keep looking for Mr. or Ms. Goodbar and dont be too quick to settle for a Nutty Buddy or a Baby Ruth! COMPUTER SERVICE

TAKE ACTION Submit a Letter to the Editor and Express Your Support for Manatee Protection Writing letters to your local newspaper is a very powerful and effective way to voice your position on manatee issues within your community. You can see a sample letter at the bottom of this page. In addition, here are some helpful tips: Keep your letter brief. Most newspapers suggest a word count of 200 words or less in a letter to the editor submission. Explain why you are writing, and express your views in your own words. Please note that you support manatee protection. If you are a boater, please include that fact. If possible, include a personal experience in your letter. Be polite and professional in the letter. Please avoid personal attacks or inappropriate language. The newspaper may not print it or will edit it considerably. Newspapers often require that you include a first and last name, regular mailing address, and a daytime phone number where you can be reached if they wish to confirm your authorship of the letter. If you are sending e-mail, include a short description of the topic in the subject box. Start your e-mail with a salutation, such as "Dear Letters Editor." Finish your e-mail with a close such as, "Sincerely," and remember to include your name, address, and daytime phone number.
