This Florida man appears to have implicated himself for murder charges. Scott Simon, 24, mistakenly stuck his hands in his pocket and dialed 911 while stating that he was folling Nicholas Walker, 33, and would kill him. The call was made minutes before Walker was killed. Of course, since he unknowingly dialed 911, his statement was recorded. Police were able to link the 911 call to Walkers death. According to reports, Walker was entering I95 when he was shot several times. He crashed on the highway. The officers dont think that Simon pulled the trigger but they do believe he was the person who orchestrated the shooting. It is believed by the officers that the murder stemmed from an argument between the two that had occurred at a Waffle house. Both Scott and Walker had arrest records. Police are looking for two other men who were appeared in the Waffle House video. Simon has been arrested.

Give us a call today to find out what you are missing.Contact Ruth(President) @ 904-674-4339 NBCI Calls on all Christians to Get Rid of Their Guns ---Unless You have sinned Who is going to protect you God or your Gun?Washington DC The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans churchgoers, calls on its membership to get rid of any weapons in their homes. The black church believes that having a weapon is a sin; as Christians we are asked to put their faith in God. God says that He will protect us even until the ends of the Earth. So if God is going to protect you, why would you need a gun? According to the American Journal of Epidemiology... "Those persons with guns in the home were at greater risk than those without guns in the home of dying from a homicide in the home. They were also at greater risk of dying from a firearm homicide, but risk varied by age and whether the person was living with others at the time of death. The risk of dying from a suicide in the home was greater for males in homes with guns than for males without guns in the home. Persons with guns in the home were also more likely to have died from suicide committed with a firearm than from one committed by using a different method." The experts say that having a firearm in your house increases the likelihood that someone in your house will either die from homicide or suicide. The Scripture says, "Thou shalt not kill." This applies to killing yourself as well as to killing others. Therefore, a gun does not have any place in a Christian's life. Nothing can offer salvation except for our God, and you cannot live a righteous life by preparing for a violent end. Our weapon is prayer, not violence. The Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative, says ... "Our community has been devastated by guns. They have caused so much pain and destruction in African-American lives. Why we think that guns are the answer is beyond me. One should strive to have a non-violent personality. We will have much to say about this issue in the coming press releases. The heart of the Christian faith lies in having faith in God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and, as followers of Christ; we should never put anything above our Lord not the Second Amendment or our guns. Our faith should be rooted in the Lord and will save us in the end, not a gun. So this is why the church is speaking clearly against a gun that can only kill the body and stain the soul. If you have a gun for protection, it is a sin and you must get rid of it. Your faith must prevail." So if you have any weapons in your house, the church is decreeing you to rid your home, life, and soul of guns and their associated violence within fifteen days of reading this edict. You have a choice to keep your guns because of free will, but also remember that the Scripture states, Those who live by the sword shall die by the sword ." Rev. Anthony Evans

Man Stages Home Invasion and Attacks Wife Out of Anger A man was arrested after police discovered that he had staged a home invasion and attacked his wife. Police responded to an attack inside a home and found a 27-year-old woman with numerous bloody lacerations to her face and hands. But what didnt make sense to investigators was the story from her husband, 29-year-old Timothy Hunter. When police arrived, the victim told police that she was home with her two young children at the couples home, while her husband took their baby with him to the store. While her husband was out running an errand, the victim said that she was in bed when she heard a noise coming from the next room. All of a sudden, a man in a mask came into her room, pushed her off the bed and began slashing her with a sharp object while demanding money. The intruder then bolted out the back door of the house. Seconds later, the victims husband emerged at the front door, seemingly unaware that his wife had been attacked. However, he initially told police that he thought a car had followed him to the store. And when he pulled into the couples driveway, he said he spotted someone crouching down on the side of the house. Hunter said that when he went to investigate, the person ran off and there possibly was a second person as well. Then he went to the door, saw what had happened to his wife, grabbed a stick and ran out the house to look for his wifes attacker. At least that was the initial story that Hunter told deputies. Investigators found inconsistencies in his stories and they discovered why it didnt make sense: There were no shadowy figures in the yard. The man behind the mask who cut up his wife was Hunter himself. During questioning, Hunter eventually confessed to attacking his wife, saying he was mad at her for supposedly cheating on him and just wanted to scare her. He said his anger got the best of him and he used a piece of metal to cut his wife. After the attack, he tossed the piece of metal and washed his clothes to conceal the evidence, which was the basis of the added charge of destroying or tampering with physical evidence. The next day, barely 15 hours after the attack was first reported, investigators arrested Hunter on felony charges of aggravated battery and destroying or tampering with physical evidence. Hunter will be held without bond.

Nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. One quarter of high school girls have been victims of physical or sexual abuse. Approximately 70% of college students say they have been sexually coerced. Violent relationships in adolescence can have serious ramifications by putting the victims at higher risk for substance abuse, eating disorders, risky sexual behavior and further domestic violence. Being physically or sexually abused makes teen girls six times more likely to become pregnant and twice as likely to get a STI. Teen dating violence often is hidden because teenagers typically: € Are inexperienced with dating relationships. € Are pressured by peers to act violently. € Want independence from parents. € Have "romantic" views of love. Your child or a child of someone else you know may be in a abusive relationship. Here are some warning signs: € She apologizes for his behavior and makes excuses for him. € She loses interest in activities that she used to enjoy. € She stops seeing friends and family members and becomes more and more isolated. € When your daughter and boyfriend are together; he calls her names and puts her down in front of other people. € He acts extremely jealous of others who pay attention to her, especially other guys. € He thinks or tells your daughter that you (her parents) don't like him. € He controls her behavior, checking up on her constantly, calling and texting her, demanding to know who she has been with. € She casually mentions his violent behavior, but laughs it off as a joke. € You see him violently lose his temper, striking or breaking objects. € She often has unexplained injuries, or the explanations she offers don't make sense. What can you do? € You may let them know that abuse usually gets worse over time. Let them know that you will be there for them. € Prepare a safety plan with your child and try to follow it whenever possible. Arrange a safe place for your children to go and plan a code word to let them know when they should leave and where to get help. Its also important to tell them that their job is to stay safe, not protect you. € Make sure your child knows the abuse isnt their fault and violence is never ok, even when someone they love is being abusive. Be carefulƒ DO NOT: € Judge the person. € Ask unnecessary questions ; the victim may shut down if they feel like they are being pressed to share information that they aren't ready to talk about. € Confront the person's abusive partner about the abuse confronting the abuser may put you in danger, and may put the victim at increased risk. Safety Teenager Obtains 22 Debit Cards from Nursing HomePatients Between February and May of 2013, the suspect, 18-year-old Devonte Courtney Jackson, fraudulently obtained 22 Visa debit cards using the personal identification information of 41 different victims. Jackson stated that he obtained the personal identification information from the patient database of a nursing home where his mother worked. Jackson was going through his mother's work computer to obtain the victims' information. He said he then he would complete Visa applications and have the cards sent to his friends' homes. Deputies received information that the suspect was in possession of 22 fraudulent credit cards and found the bag of credit cards at Jackson's home. Jackson was arrested and charged with 41 counts of fraudulent use of person identification information and one count of trafficking in counterfeit credit cards. Devonte Jackson Woman Shoots and Kills Husband A woman was arrested after shooting and killing his husband. At approximately 10:30 p.m., the victim, 33year-old Ervin Washington, called his mother from a Walmart store and advised her that his wife, Emon Kellar, 34, stabbed him and flattened all four tires of his truck. His mother picked him up and took him to her him. She rendered first aid to his stab wound. The next day, at approximately 4:00 a.m., Washington had his mother drive him around to do his paper route. During this time, Kellar was seen following them closely in her vehicle. Washington was dropped off at his residence, which he shares with Kellar. Kellar also arrived at the residence as Washington was getting out of his mother's car. At that time, Kellar made verbal threats to Washington in front of his mother. A little over an hour later, police received a 911 call in reference to a deceased male who had been shot. When police arrived, a neighbor stated that she had heard yelling and had seen Kellar raise her hand towards Washington and then she heard a loud pop. Kellar ran inside and told her children that their father had killed himself. Then, Kellar was seen attempting to put the firearm into Washington's left hand. When police arrived, they found a man dead in the driveway of the home. Kellar was questioned about the shooting and was soon arrested by police. Kellar was charged with first-degree murder with a firearm. Washington was said to have been a football coach of a children organization. He was known as Coach ErvŽand worked with children from 4 to 16 years old. A player said that he would plan to have players and parents sign a football in memory of Washington.

LOCAL MAY 25, 2013 THE STA R PAGE 7 Florida Frank L. Humphrey III Florida A&M University Student Receives Southern Integrated Pest Management Graduate Student AwardTALLAHASSEE, Fla .… Saundra Wheeler, a graduate student majoring in entomology at Florida A&M University (FAMU), has been named the recipient of the Friends of Southern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Graduate Student Award in the masters category. Wheeler was presented with the award by Henry Fadamiro, the associate director of the Southern Region Integrated Pest Management, during the 17thBiennial Research Symposium of the Association of 1890 Research Directors, Inc. in Jacksonville, Fla. The Friends of Southern IPM Awards Program recognizes extraordinary achievement in research, extension, and implementation of IPM in the Southern Region of the United States. The Graduate Student Award was created last year to honor two exceptional graduate students, one at the masters level and one at the Ph.D. level with an honorarium, a plaque and the opportunity to publish an article about their research. The nominees from 1862 and 1890 Land-Grant Universities and Colleges were evaluated based upon their potential contributions in integrated pest management in the Southern Region of the United States. Wheeler, an outstanding student leader and scholar in the FAMU College of Agriculture and Food Sciences (CAFS) said, Receiving this award from professionals in my field is significant because it validates my choice to be become an entomologist as well as the hard work it took to complete my studies. To be the first African-American female graduate student and the first student from an 1890 institution to ever receive this significant honor is indeed a milestone for my journey.Ž Wheeler had expressed appreciation to her graduate professor, Lambert Kanga, program leader for FAMUs Entomology Program, for the high degree of support and mentoring he provided throughout her course of study. The award recognizes Wheelers research on the small hive beetle, which poses a serious threat to honey bee colonies and agriculture because of the contributions made to croppollination by the bees. Wheeler identified a fungal strain that is highly pathogenic to this beetle and is more effective in managing the small hive beetle than most pesticides currently used for control. Based on her research, she proposed a pest management strategy, which could easily be adopted by beekeepers and is cost-effective, affordable, and sustainable. Robert W. Taylor, dean and director of Land-Grant Programs, FAMUs CAFS, said, We are very proud of Ms. Wheelers achievement of receiving this esteemed award from the Friends of Southern Integrated Pest Management. Her recognition brings distinction to both FAMU and the 1890 land-grant institutions. She has worked with diligence and a standard of excellence to achieve her goals. The fact that she was able to rise to the top from among a group of highly competitive scholars speaks volumes about Saundras academic proficiency as well as the quality of the scientific programs that are ongoing in our college and at this university. On behalf of the faculty, staff, students and alumni of the college, I take this opportunity to congratulate Saundra on this outstanding achievement in the first phase of her professional career.Ž By Marsha Phelts Frank L. Humphrey III, a local singer and performer has recently been accepted to the renowned Manhattan School of Music in New York City on a scholarship. The Florida Star Readers and this citys theatre goers will remember Frank for his character roles in Zora Neale Hurstons SPUNK a musical based on three short stories. For the past 2 years Mr. Humphrey has been a student at Florida State College at Jacksonville South Campus working on his gift and excelling academically where he studied with Pamela Helton for 2 semesters at South Campus. Mr. Humphrey will be attending Manhattan School of Music to finish working on his Bachelors in Music in Voice Performance. The Florida Star proudly salutes Humphrey for the Manhattan School of Music accepts just a small handful of students each year„about five. Two of those fiver places are being filled by FSCJ graduates Frank Humphrey and Meagan Ball. They will study vocal performance. Not bad at all! Frank Humphrey has always wanted to work in New York City up on the stages of the Metropolitan Opera starring in the most world-renowned roles and on the Broadway stages portraying some of the most Iconic Roles and even Originating roles. Hes head there to realize his dreams. When his instructor, Pamela Helton, first told him about this prestigious school his initial reaction was,Ž I dont know anything about the Manhattan School of Music. Who attends that school?Ž He went back and did research like Helton asked him to do and Frank discovered that there are plenty of individuals at the school, some of the most influential people in the music industry such as Harry Connick Jr.TV, Film, and Broadway star, Zaljick,Opera Singer and Joseph Joubert who is now musical Director of Motown the Musical. So is he ever excited to be joining some of the most Gifted and Talented musicians, artist, vocalist, and world-renowned Teachers? Youd better believe that he is. Go Frank L. L Humphrey. Franks motto is: Success isnt an option or Dream its a Demand. as Man 2, Slang Talk Man, Boy, Clerk Meagan Ball and Frank L. Humphrey, III Frank L. Humphrey, III Saundra Wheeler

She graduated two years earlier than her same aged peers. Photographs by FMPowell3History continues to be made in Atlanta, the birth city of the late Dr. Martin Luther King. Thousands embarked upon the city to celebrate the graduation of loved ones from Spelman and Morehouse, two of the most prestigious historically Black tertiary intstitutes of learning. The drenching rain did not stop the 545 graduates from attending Spelmans bacculeaurate service as they sat with umbrellas to celebrate one of their most important milestones in their lives. Two Spelmanites received a special honor. Kirstie and Kristie Bronner were named CoValedictorians for Spelman College Class of 2013 with 4.0 grade point averages. The Bronners, third generation, Spelman graduates are the first to receive the designation in the history of Spelman. The identical twin sisters, who were homeschooled are the daughters of Bishop Dale C. Bronner of Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral and the world renknown Bronner Brothers hair care. The sisters enhanced their academic career by studying music abroad their junior year in Milan, Italy as part of the Institute for the International Education of Students. It was a powerful weekend at Morehouse College as well. Roughly 500 graduates of the all-male institution experienced a memorable speech by President Barack Obama. Neither lightening or thunder were more intensifying than bond shared by Dorian Joyner Sr. and Dorian Joyner Jr., a father and son duo graduating with their bachelor degree. Over two decades ago, Dorian Joyner Sr., 46, was a student at Atlanta's Morehouse College in 1988 when he decided to take a sabbatical to pursue a career opportunity in computers. In 2006, he went back to school to get an associate's degree in paralegal studies to make sure his interest in law was real and worth the investment. In 2010, Joyner Sr. told his son about his decision to go back to Morehouse and Joyner Jr. thought he visiting friends and not becoming a student. Only did Joyner Jr. know his father was going to join him on campus and share commencement day. As Morehouse Men, you now wield something even more powerful than the diploma youre about to collect -and thats the power of your example. So what I ask of you today is the same thing I ask of every graduating class I address: Use that power for something larger than yourself.Ž And finally, as you do these things, do them not just for yourself, but don't even do them just for the African American community. I want you to set your sights higher,Ž President Obama said. Its not just the African American community that needs you. The country needs you. The world needs you. Success may not come quickly or easily. But if you strive to do whats right, if you work harder and dream bigger, if you set an example in your own lives and do your part to help meet the challenges of our time, then Im confident that, together, we will continue the never-ending task of perfecting our union.

The Mississippi Braves (26-17) hit three home runs, and the Jacksonville Suns (24-16) fell in an 8-0 hole before plating their first run in a 9-3 loss at Trustmark Park. Suns starter Bryan Evans (0-1), making first start of the 2013 season after beginning the year on the disabled list, threw just three innings and allowed seven earned runs as Jacksonville fell back into second place in the Southern League South division. The Braves regained a half game advantage over the Suns heading into game four of the series on Monday. The win snapped the Suns' four-game winning streak that began in game four of the team's previous series against the BayBears in Mobile. Evans fell into a hole early in the bottom of the second inning when he served up a solo home run to Edward Salcedo that gave the Braves a 1-0 lead. Several batters later, Braeden Schlehuber rapped a two-run shot over the wall in left to extend the Suns' deficit to 3-0. The third inning would prove to be the most costly for Evans and the Suns, as Mississippi scored four times to blow the game open. Christian Marrero doubled in Tommy La Stella, and Jose Martinez's double play grounder scored Marrero to push the advantage to 5-0. After Jaime Pedroza reached base, Schlehuber hit his second long ball of the afternoon to make the lead seven. It was an eight run Braves lead before Jacksonville finally broke through against Mississippi starter Alex Wood (3-2) in the top of the sixth. Audy Ciriaco's line drive single scored Jake Marisnick to get the Suns on the board, and Chris Gutierrez's two-run triple made it an 83 game. Jacksonville would do no further damage against Wood or a trio of Braves relievers, however. Wood, who entered the game with a near-spotless 0.82 ERA, finished his day with six innings pitched, allowing three runs on six hits with five strikeouts and a pair of walks. The Braves closed out the scoring on Kyle Russell's runscoring hit off Collin Cargill in the bottom of the seventh. Suns pitchers surrendered a season-high 17 hits, with seven Braves tallying multi-hit games against Jacksonville hurlers. Both Pedroza and Schlehuber finished with three-hit afternoons. Mike Ojala's run allowed in the bottom of the fifth was the first for the Suns' bullpen in the series against Mississippi, and the first overall after a scoreless streak of 14 straight innings. Jake Marisnick was one of just two Suns with multiple hits in the game, finishing his afternoon 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored.Lcemuqpxknng"Ikcpvu Egngdtcvg"YkpDown one score at the start of the third quarter on Saturday night, the Jacksonville Sharks (6-3) committed back-toback turnovers and could not recover, falling to the San Jose SaberCats (6-2) by a 57-36 count in front of 8,641 on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. The Sharks came out of the locker room after halftime facing just a seven-point deficit, 29-22. But Jacksonville turned the ball over on each of its first two possessions of the second half, and the resulting scores but the Sharks in a hole from which the team could not recover. On the opening drive of the third, Jacksonville moved into San Jose territory before quarterback R.J. Archer was intercepted by SaberCat Jack linebacker Huey Whittaker. After a San Jose touchdown, the Sharks moved into the red zone on their next drive, but San Jose defensive lineman Jason Stewart popped the ball loose from the grasp of Jerry Turner. The SaberCats pounced on the loose ball and converted the turnover into another touchdown, taking a commanding 36-22 lead. The Sharks did get on the board with a pair of touchdowns in the fourth, as Archer hit Markee White from three yards out and fired a 20-yard strike to Jeff Hughley. But each time, San Jose was able to answer with a score of its own, and the Sharks could not come within fewer than two scores at any point in the final quarter. Earlier, San Jose scored the games first points on their opening drive. After Fred Williams kick return set the SaberCats up at the 21-yard line, quarterback Russ Michna found Huey Whittaker for a score to put San Jose ahead, 6-0. The Shark offense responded by marching down the field, as Archer hit Hughley over the middle for a 13-yard touchdown on fourth down. With the game tied at six, San Jose took the games first advantage with a score followed by a defensive stop. After Michna took it in himself from three yards out to give his team a 13-6 lead, the Sharks went four-and-out as Archers pass for Hughley fell incomplete. But the Shark defense stepped up on the games next possession to keep the score close. After San Jose marched into the red zone, the Jacksonville defensive line stood strong on back-to-back running plays. Two consecutive holding penalties then moved San Jose back to the Shark 21, and the defense forced the SaberCats into a field goal attempt. Nich Pertuits kick was true from 37 yards out, and San Jose took a 16-6 lead. Archer and his offense bounced back on the next possession, as the Shark quarterback found Jeron Harvey from seven yards out for Harveys team-leading 18th touchdown of the season. Marco Capozzolis extra point cut the Jacksonville deficit to just three, 16-13. San Jose answered with another score as Whittaker took it in with a threeyard rushing touchdown. As Pertuit stepped into his extra point, Jerry Turner blocked the kick straight backwards and fellow defensive lineman Ayanga Okpokowuruk tracked down the loose ball, picked it up at a dead run and sprinted to the opposite end zone for two points. The play kept it a one-score game at 22-15. The teams traded touchdowns on the final two possessions of the first half to set up the situation at the start of the third quarter. Harvey fought off contact from multiple defenders and pulled in an outstanding one-handed catch in the corner of the end zone, completing a 23-yard touchdown that was his second score of the game. That touchdown tied the score at 22, but San Jose answered with a two-yard pass from Michna to Whittaker as the clock expired. Making his first start of the season, Archer completed 29 of his 46 passes for 264 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Harvey and White led the Sharks with matching 11-catch performances, as Harvey totaled 108 yards and two scores while White added 78 yards and a touchdown. Jeff Hughley found the end zone twice as well, averaging a team-high 12.5 yards per catch on his six grabs for 75 yards. On defense, Terrance Smith led the Sharks with five total tackles (four solo), two tackles for loss and two pass breakups. Aaron Robbins dropped Michna twice for his sixth and seventh sacks of the season, forcing a fumble as well. Turner and Jamaal Fudge each added a tackle for loss. On the other side, Michna was efficient throughout, finishing 16-of-23 for 258 yards and five touchdowns. Williams led San Jose with eight catches for a game-high 155 yards and two scores. Whittaker found the end zone twice as well, and former Shark Jason Willis chipped in with two catches for 46 yards and a score. Michna carried the ball four times for 15 yards and two rushing touchdowns, while Whittaker scored on the ground himself. J.C. Neal led all players with 8.5 tackles (seven solo), while Francis Maka and Jabari Fletcher each recorded two tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.

This Florida man appears to have implicated himself for murder charges. Scott Simon, 24, mistakenly stuck his hands in his pocket and dialed 911 while stating that he was folling Nicholas Walker, 33, and would kill him. The call was made minutes before Walker was killed. Of course, since he unknowingly dialed 911, his statement was recorded. Police were able to link the 911 call to Walkers death. According to reports, Walker was entering I95 when he was shot several times. He crashed on the highway. The officers dont think that Simon pulled the trigger but they do believe he was the person who orchestrated the shooting. It is believed by the officers that the murder stemmed from an argument between the two that had occurred at a Waffle house. Both Scott and Walker had arrest records. Police are looking for two other men who were appeared in the Waffle House video. Simon has been arrested.

Give us a call today to find out what you are missing.Contact Ruth(President) @ 904-674-4339 NBCI Calls on all Christians to Get Rid of Their Guns ---Unless You have sinned Who is going to protect you God or your Gun?Washington DC The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans churchgoers, calls on its membership to get rid of any weapons in their homes. The black church believes that having a weapon is a sin; as Christians we are asked to put their faith in God. God says that He will protect us even until the ends of the Earth. So if God is going to protect you, why would you need a gun? According to the American Journal of Epidemiology... "Those persons with guns in the home were at greater risk than those without guns in the home of dying from a homicide in the home. They were also at greater risk of dying from a firearm homicide, but risk varied by age and whether the person was living with others at the time of death. The risk of dying from a suicide in the home was greater for males in homes with guns than for males without guns in the home. Persons with guns in the home were also more likely to have died from suicide committed with a firearm than from one committed by using a different method." The experts say that having a firearm in your house increases the likelihood that someone in your house will either die from homicide or suicide. The Scripture says, "Thou shalt not kill." This applies to killing yourself as well as to killing others. Therefore, a gun does not have any place in a Christian's life. Nothing can offer salvation except for our God, and you cannot live a righteous life by preparing for a violent end. Our weapon is prayer, not violence. The Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative, says ... "Our community has been devastated by guns. They have caused so much pain and destruction in African-American lives. Why we think that guns are the answer is beyond me. One should strive to have a non-violent personality. We will have much to say about this issue in the coming press releases. The heart of the Christian faith lies in having faith in God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and, as followers of Christ; we should never put anything above our Lord not the Second Amendment or our guns. Our faith should be rooted in the Lord and will save us in the end, not a gun. So this is why the church is speaking clearly against a gun that can only kill the body and stain the soul. If you have a gun for protection, it is a sin and you must get rid of it. Your faith must prevail." So if you have any weapons in your house, the church is decreeing you to rid your home, life, and soul of guns and their associated violence within fifteen days of reading this edict. You have a choice to keep your guns because of free will, but also remember that the Scripture states, Those who live by the sword shall die by the sword ." Rev. Anthony Evans

Man Stages Home Invasion and Attacks Wife Out of Anger A man was arrested after police discovered that he had staged a home invasion and attacked his wife. Police responded to an attack inside a home and found a 27-year-old woman with numerous bloody lacerations to her face and hands. But what didnt make sense to investigators was the story from her husband, 29-year-old Timothy Hunter. When police arrived, the victim told police that she was home with her two young children at the couples home, while her husband took their baby with him to the store. While her husband was out running an errand, the victim said that she was in bed when she heard a noise coming from the next room. All of a sudden, a man in a mask came into her room, pushed her off the bed and began slashing her with a sharp object while demanding money. The intruder then bolted out the back door of the house. Seconds later, the victims husband emerged at the front door, seemingly unaware that his wife had been attacked. However, he initially told police that he thought a car had followed him to the store. And when he pulled into the couples driveway, he said he spotted someone crouching down on the side of the house. Hunter said that when he went to investigate, the person ran off and there possibly was a second person as well. Then he went to the door, saw what had happened to his wife, grabbed a stick and ran out the house to look for his wifes attacker. At least that was the initial story that Hunter told deputies. Investigators found inconsistencies in his stories and they discovered why it didnt make sense: There were no shadowy figures in the yard. The man behind the mask who cut up his wife was Hunter himself. During questioning, Hunter eventually confessed to attacking his wife, saying he was mad at her for supposedly cheating on him and just wanted to scare her. He said his anger got the best of him and he used a piece of metal to cut his wife. After the attack, he tossed the piece of metal and washed his clothes to conceal the evidence, which was the basis of the added charge of destroying or tampering with physical evidence. The next day, barely 15 hours after the attack was first reported, investigators arrested Hunter on felony charges of aggravated battery and destroying or tampering with physical evidence.

Nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. One quarter of high school girls have been victims of physical or sexual abuse. Approximately 70% of college students say they have been sexually coerced. Violent relationships in adolescence can have serious ramifications by putting the victims at higher risk for substance abuse, eating disorders, risky sexual behavior and further domestic violence. Being physically or sexually abused makes teen girls six times more likely to become pregnant and twice as likely to get a STI. Teen dating violence often is hidden because teenagers typically: € Are inexperienced with dating relationships. € Are pressured by peers to act violently. € Want independence from parents. € Have "romantic" views of love. Your child or a child of someone else you know may be in a abusive relationship. Here are some warning signs: € She apologizes for his behavior and makes excuses for him. € She loses interest in activities that she used to enjoy. € She stops seeing friends and family members and becomes more and more isolated. € When your daughter and boyfriend are together; he calls her names and puts her down in front of other people. € He acts extremely jealous of others who pay attention to her, especially other guys. € He thinks or tells your daughter that you (her parents) don't like him. € He controls her behavior, checking up on her constantly, calling and texting her, demanding to know who she has been with. € She casually mentions his violent behavior, but laughs it off as a joke. € You see him violently lose his temper, striking or breaking objects. € She often has unexplained injuries, or the explanations she offers don't make sense. What can you do? € You may let them know that abuse usually gets worse over time. Let them know that you will be there for them. € Prepare a safety plan with your child and try to follow it whenever possible. Arrange a safe place for your children to go and plan a code word to let them know when they should leave and where to get help. Its also important to tell them that their job is to stay safe, not protect you. € Make sure your child knows the abuse isnt their fault and violence is never ok, even when someone they love is being abusive. Be carefulƒ DO NOT: € Judge the person. € Ask unnecessary questions ; the victim may shut down if they feel like they are being pressed to share information that they aren't ready to talk about. € Confront the person's abusive partner about the abuse confronting the abuser may put you in danger, and may put the victim at increased risk. Safety Teenager Obtains 22 Debit Cards from Nursing HomePatients Between February and May of 2013, the suspect, 18-year-old Devonte Courtney Jackson, fraudulently obtained 22 Visa debit cards using the personal identification information of 41 different victims. Jackson stated that he obtained the personal identification information from the patient database of a nursing home where his mother worked. Jackson was going through his mother's work computer to obtain the victims' information. He said he then he would complete Visa applications and have the cards sent to his friends' homes. Deputies received information that the suspect was in possession of 22 fraudulent credit cards and found the bag of credit cards at Jackson's home. Jackson was arrested and charged with 41 counts of fraudulent use of person identification information and one count of trafficking in counterfeit credit cards. Devonte Jackson Woman Shoots and Kills Husband A woman was arrested after shooting and killing his husband. At approximately 10:30 p.m., the victim, 33year-old Ervin Washington, called his mother from a Walmart store and advised her that his wife, Emon Kellar, 34, stabbed him and flattened all four tires of his truck. His mother picked him up and took him to her him. She rendered first aid to his stab wound. The next day, at approximately 4:00 a.m., Washington had his mother drive him around to do his paper route. During this time, Kellar was seen following them closely in her vehicle. Washington was dropped off at his residence, which he shares with Kellar. Kellar also arrived at the residence as Washington was getting out of his mother's car. At that time, Kellar made verbal threats to Washington in front of his mother. A little over an hour later, police received a 911 call in reference to a deceased male who had been shot. When police arrived, a neighbor stated that she had heard yelling and had seen Kellar raise her hand towards Washington and then she heard a loud pop. Kellar ran inside and told her children that their father had killed himself. Then, Kellar was seen attempting to put the firearm into Washington's left hand. When police arrived, they found a man dead in the driveway of the home. Kellar was questioned about the shooting and was soon arrested by police. Kellar was charged with first-degree murder with a firearm. Washington was said to have been a football coach of a children organization. He was known as Coach ErvŽand worked with children from 4 to 16 years old. A player said that he would plan to have players and parents sign a football in memory of Washington.

LOCAL MAY 25, 2013 THE STA R PAGE 7 Florida Frank L. Humphrey III Florida A&M University Student Receives Southern Integrated Pest Management Graduate Student AwardTALLAHASSEE, Fla .… Saundra Wheeler, a graduate student majoring in entomology at Florida A&M University (FAMU), has been named the recipient of the Friends of Southern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Graduate Student Award in the masters category. Wheeler was presented with the award by Henry Fadamiro, the associate director of the Southern Region Integrated Pest Management, during the 17thBiennial Research Symposium of the Association of 1890 Research Directors, Inc. in Jacksonville, Fla. The Friends of Southern IPM Awards Program recognizes extraordinary achievement in research, extension, and implementation of IPM in the Southern Region of the United States. The Graduate Student Award was created last year to honor two exceptional graduate students, one at the masters level and one at the Ph.D. level with an honorarium, a plaque and the opportunity to publish an article about their research. The nominees from 1862 and 1890 Land-Grant Universities and Colleges were evaluated based upon their potential contributions in integrated pest management in the Southern Region of the United States. Wheeler, an outstanding student leader and scholar in the FAMU College of Agriculture and Food Sciences (CAFS) said, Receiving this award from professionals in my field is significant because it validates my choice to be become an entomologist as well as the hard work it took to complete my studies. To be the first African-American female graduate student and the first student from an 1890 institution to ever receive this significant honor is indeed a milestone for my journey.Ž Wheeler had expressed appreciation to her graduate professor, Lambert Kanga, program leader for FAMUs Entomology Program, for the high degree of support and mentoring he provided throughout her course of study. The award recognizes Wheelers research on the small hive beetle, which poses a serious threat to honey bee colonies and agriculture because of the contributions made to croppollination by the bees. Wheeler identified a fungal strain that is highly pathogenic to this beetle and is more effective in managing the small hive beetle than most pesticides currently used for control. Based on her research, she proposed a pest management strategy, which could easily be adopted by beekeepers and is cost-effective, affordable, and sustainable. Robert W. Taylor, dean and director of Land-Grant Programs, FAMUs CAFS, said, We are very proud of Ms. Wheelers achievement of receiving this esteemed award from the Friends of Southern Integrated Pest Management. Her recognition brings distinction to both FAMU and the 1890 land-grant institutions. She has worked with diligence and a standard of excellence to achieve her goals. The fact that she was able to rise to the top from among a group of highly competitive scholars speaks volumes about Saundras academic proficiency as well as the quality of the scientific programs that are ongoing in our college and at this university. On behalf of the faculty, staff, students and alumni of the college, I take this opportunity to congratulate Saundra on this outstanding achievement in the first phase of her professional career.Ž By Marsha Phelts Frank L. Humphrey III, a local singer and performer has recently been accepted to the renowned Manhattan School of Music in New York City on a scholarship. The Florida Star Readers and this citys theatre goers will remember Frank for his character roles in Zora Neale Hurstons SPUNK a musical based on three short stories. For the past 2 years Mr. Humphrey has been a student at Florida State College at Jacksonville South Campus working on his gift and excelling academically where he studied with Pamela Helton for 2 semesters at South Campus. Mr. Humphrey will be attending Manhattan School of Music to finish working on his Bachelors in Music in Voice Performance. The Florida Star proudly salutes Humphrey for the Manhattan School of Music accepts just a small handful of students each year„about five. Two of those fiver places are being filled by FSCJ graduates Frank Humphrey and Meagan Ball. They will study vocal performance. Not bad at all! Frank Humphrey has always wanted to work in New York City up on the stages of the Metropolitan Opera starring in the most world-renowned roles and on the Broadway stages portraying some of the most Iconic Roles and even Originating roles. Hes head there to realize his dreams. When his instructor, Pamela Helton, first told him about this prestigious school his initial reaction was,Ž I dont know anything about the Manhattan School of Music. Who attends that school?Ž He went back and did research like Helton asked him to do and Frank discovered that there are plenty of individuals at the school, some of the most influential people in the music industry such as Harry Connick Jr.TV, Film, and Broadway star, Zaljick,Opera Singer and Joseph Joubert who is now musical Director of Motown the Musical. So is he ever excited to be joining some of the most Gifted and Talented musicians, artist, vocalist, and world-renowned Teachers? Youd better believe that he is. Go Frank L. L Humphrey. Franks motto is: Success isnt an option or Dream its a Demand. as Man 2, Slang Talk Man, Boy, Clerk Meagan Ball and Frank L. Humphrey, III Frank L. Humphrey, III Saundra Wheeler

She graduated two years earlier than her same aged peers. Photographs by FMPowell3History continues to be made in Atlanta, the birth city of the late Dr. Martin Luther King. Thousands embarked upon the city to celebrate the graduation of loved ones from Spelman and Morehouse, two of the most prestigious historically Black tertiary intstitutes of learning. The drenching rain did not stop the 545 graduates from attending Spelmans bacculeaurate service as they sat with umbrellas to celebrate one of their most important milestones in their lives. Two Spelmanites received a special honor. Kirstie and Kristie Bronner were named CoValedictorians for Spelman College Class of 2013 with 4.0 grade point averages. The Bronners, third generation, Spelman graduates are the first to receive the designation in the history of Spelman. The identical twin sisters, who were homeschooled are the daughters of Bishop Dale C. Bronner of Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral and the world renknown Bronner Brothers hair care. The sisters enhanced their academic career by studying music abroad their junior year in Milan, Italy as part of the Institute for the International Education of Students. It was a powerful weekend at Morehouse College as well. Roughly 500 graduates of the all-male institution experienced a memorable speech by President Barack Obama. Neither lightening or thunder were more intensifying than bond shared by Dorian Joyner Sr. and Dorian Joyner Jr., a father and son duo graduating with their bachelor degree. Over two decades ago, Dorian Joyner Sr., 46, was a student at Atlanta's Morehouse College in 1988 when he decided to take a sabbatical to pursue a career opportunity in computers. In 2006, he went back to school to get an associate's degree in paralegal studies to make sure his interest in law was real and worth the investment. In 2010, Joyner Sr. told his son about his decision to go back to Morehouse and Joyner Jr. thought he visiting friends and not becoming a student. Only did Joyner Jr. know his father was going to join him on campus and share commencement day. As Morehouse Men, you now wield something even more powerful than the diploma youre about to collect -and thats the power of your example. So what I ask of you today is the same thing I ask of every graduating class I address: Use that power for something larger than yourself.Ž And finally, as you do these things, do them not just for yourself, but don't even do them just for the African American community. I want you to set your sights higher,Ž President Obama said. Its not just the African American community that needs you. The country needs you. The world needs you. Success may not come quickly or easily. But if you strive to do whats right, if you work harder and dream bigger, if you set an example in your own lives and do your part to help meet the challenges of our time, then Im confident that, together, we will continue the never-ending task of perfecting our union.

The Mississippi Braves (26-17) hit three home runs, and the Jacksonville Suns (24-16) fell in an 8-0 hole before plating their first run in a 9-3 loss at Trustmark Park. Suns starter Bryan Evans (0-1), making first start of the 2013 season after beginning the year on the disabled list, threw just three innings and allowed seven earned runs as Jacksonville fell back into second place in the Southern League South division. The Braves regained a half game advantage over the Suns heading into game four of the series on Monday. The win snapped the Suns' four-game winning streak that began in game four of the team's previous series against the BayBears in Mobile. Evans fell into a hole early in the bottom of the second inning when he served up a solo home run to Edward Salcedo that gave the Braves a 1-0 lead. Several batters later, Braeden Schlehuber rapped a two-run shot over the wall in left to extend the Suns' deficit to 3-0. The third inning would prove to be the most costly for Evans and the Suns, as Mississippi scored four times to blow the game open. Christian Marrero doubled in Tommy La Stella, and Jose Martinez's double play grounder scored Marrero to push the advantage to 5-0. After Jaime Pedroza reached base, Schlehuber hit his second long ball of the afternoon to make the lead seven. It was an eight run Braves lead before Jacksonville finally broke through against Mississippi starter Alex Wood (3-2) in the top of the sixth. Audy Ciriaco's line drive single scored Jake Marisnick to get the Suns on the board, and Chris Gutierrez's two-run triple made it an 83 game. Jacksonville would do no further damage against Wood or a trio of Braves relievers, however. Wood, who entered the game with a near-spotless 0.82 ERA, finished his day with six innings pitched, allowing three runs on six hits with five strikeouts and a pair of walks. The Braves closed out the scoring on Kyle Russell's runscoring hit off Collin Cargill in the bottom of the seventh. Suns pitchers surrendered a season-high 17 hits, with seven Braves tallying multi-hit games against Jacksonville hurlers. Both Pedroza and Schlehuber finished with three-hit afternoons. Mike Ojala's run allowed in the bottom of the fifth was the first for the Suns' bullpen in the series against Mississippi, and the first overall after a scoreless streak of 14 straight innings. Jake Marisnick was one of just two Suns with multiple hits in the game, finishing his afternoon 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored.Lcemuqpxknng"Ikcpvu Egngdtcvg"YkpDown one score at the start of the third quarter on Saturday night, the Jacksonville Sharks (6-3) committed back-toback turnovers and could not recover, falling to the San Jose SaberCats (6-2) by a 57-36 count in front of 8,641 on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. The Sharks came out of the locker room after halftime facing just a seven-point deficit, 29-22. But Jacksonville turned the ball over on each of its first two possessions of the second half, and the resulting scores but the Sharks in a hole from which the team could not recover. On the opening drive of the third, Jacksonville moved into San Jose territory before quarterback R.J. Archer was intercepted by SaberCat Jack linebacker Huey Whittaker. After a San Jose touchdown, the Sharks moved into the red zone on their next drive, but San Jose defensive lineman Jason Stewart popped the ball loose from the grasp of Jerry Turner. The SaberCats pounced on the loose ball and converted the turnover into another touchdown, taking a commanding 36-22 lead. The Sharks did get on the board with a pair of touchdowns in the fourth, as Archer hit Markee White from three yards out and fired a 20-yard strike to Jeff Hughley. But each time, San Jose was able to answer with a score of its own, and the Sharks could not come within fewer than two scores at any point in the final quarter. Earlier, San Jose scored the games first points on their opening drive. After Fred Williams kick return set the SaberCats up at the 21-yard line, quarterback Russ Michna found Huey Whittaker for a score to put San Jose ahead, 6-0. The Shark offense responded by marching down the field, as Archer hit Hughley over the middle for a 13-yard touchdown on fourth down. With the game tied at six, San Jose took the games first advantage with a score followed by a defensive stop. After Michna took it in himself from three yards out to give his team a 13-6 lead, the Sharks went four-and-out as Archers pass for Hughley fell incomplete. But the Shark defense stepped up on the games next possession to keep the score close. After San Jose marched into the red zone, the Jacksonville defensive line stood strong on back-to-back running plays. Two consecutive holding penalties then moved San Jose back to the Shark 21, and the defense forced the SaberCats into a field goal attempt. Nich Pertuits kick was true from 37 yards out, and San Jose took a 16-6 lead. Archer and his offense bounced back on the next possession, as the Shark quarterback found Jeron Harvey from seven yards out for Harveys team-leading 18th touchdown of the season. Marco Capozzolis extra point cut the Jacksonville deficit to just three, 16-13. San Jose answered with another score as Whittaker took it in with a threeyard rushing touchdown. As Pertuit stepped into his extra point, Jerry Turner blocked the kick straight backwards and fellow defensive lineman Ayanga Okpokowuruk tracked down the loose ball, picked it up at a dead run and sprinted to the opposite end zone for two points. The play kept it a one-score game at 22-15. The teams traded touchdowns on the final two possessions of the first half to set up the situation at the start of the third quarter. Harvey fought off contact from multiple defenders and pulled in an outstanding one-handed catch in the corner of the end zone, completing a 23-yard touchdown that was his second score of the game. That touchdown tied the score at 22, but San Jose answered with a two-yard pass from Michna to Whittaker as the clock expired. Making his first start of the season, Archer completed 29 of his 46 passes for 264 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Harvey and White led the Sharks with matching 11-catch performances, as Harvey totaled 108 yards and two scores while White added 78 yards and a touchdown. Jeff Hughley found the end zone twice as well, averaging a team-high 12.5 yards per catch on his six grabs for 75 yards. On defense, Terrance Smith led the Sharks with five total tackles (four solo), two tackles for loss and two pass breakups. Aaron Robbins dropped Michna twice for his sixth and seventh sacks of the season, forcing a fumble as well. Turner and Jamaal Fudge each added a tackle for loss. On the other side, Michna was efficient throughout, finishing 16-of-23 for 258 yards and five touchdowns. Williams led San Jose with eight catches for a game-high 155 yards and two scores. Whittaker found the end zone twice as well, and former Shark Jason Willis chipped in with two catches for 46 yards and a score. Michna carried the ball four times for 15 yards and two rushing touchdowns, while Whittaker scored on the ground himself. J.C. Neal led all players with 8.5 tackles (seven solo), while Francis Maka and Jabari Fletcher each recorded two tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.
