On Friday, April 12, 2013 at 9:21 p.m. police were dispatched to 2417 Miss Muffet Lane West In reference to an audible residential burglar alarm. Upon arrival an officer observed a bathroom window broken in the back of the residence. It was later discovered that the victim, Bella Barnat, was located inside the residence deceased as the result of a single gunshot wound to the back of the head. The investigation revealed that the victim lived alone. Crime Scene Detectives recovered a drop of blood from under the mattress that did not belong to the victim. The recovered blood drop was determined to be a DNA CODIS match for the suspect, Francis Lai. On June 13, Lai was located and arrested. A criminal records check revealed that Lai had an outstanding warrant for aggravated battery that had been issued in March. He was then charged with the outstanding warrants and the add-on-charge for murder. Former Florida State Representative and long time radio personality, Andy Johnson is back on the air with his progressive talk radio show. On Thursday, the lines lite up for his show, even while he was out undergoing more health progress. that he is not trying to harass the Republican party members, even though it appeared they were trying to harass President Obama. He added that he had a constructive suggestion that he feel is good for Jacksonville, good for Florida, good for the USA, and good, too, for the Republican Party. Increasingly,Ž he said,  the local and state Republican organization will look silly, juvenile, racist, and boneheaded, and hateful...and ridiculous...and mean-spirited... unless the Senate confirms Judge Brian Davis. There is no possible good reason to hold up this process. One has to scratch his head and ask, are the Republicans doing this? Is it because he is black? or, are the Republicans doing this because they like to screw up the process and make government contentious and stupid? or Maybe the Republicans are just flat-out trying to be obstructionist and they just want to block anything and everything, blindly, irrationally, without thinking? Johnson added, I ask you to do the right thing but it is also the politically expedient thing for Republicans. Seriously, I am a Democrat...and if I wanted to be a nasty partisan, then I would hope Davis would never be confirmed, because this blocking of Davis could be a huge vote-getter for the Democrats. Best wishes. Be pushy on things where you are truly motivated by some issue. But don't do childish things like hold up the nomination of one of the most highly qualified judicial appointees in Florida just to play partisan games.Ž Ugtxkpi"{qw"ukpeg"3;730 Tcvgf"‰C-“"d{"vjg Dgvvgt"Dwukpguu"Dwtgcw Cp"Cyctf Ykppkpi Rwdnkecvkqp Tgcf"Vjg"Hnqtkfc cpf"Igqtikc"Uvct Pgyurcrgtu0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqo Nkuvgp"vq"KORCEV Tcfkq"Vcnm"Ujqy0 The peoples choice Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct R0"Q0"Dqz"6284; Lcemuqpxknng."HN"54425 PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFC‘U"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT Rtguqtvgf"Uvcpfctf W0U0"Rquvcig"Rckf Lcemuqpxknng."HN Rgtokv""Pq0"5839 Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct.

The officer was acting on a tip from an investigation after receiving a report of a shoplifting in progress earlier that day at the Polo Ralph Lauren store at the St. Augustine Premium Outlets. The suspects were later seen leaving in a white Nissan Altima. Inside the vehicle, officers uncovered clothing valued at over $2,500. The items were believed to have been stolen from several stores including Polo, Reebok/Rockport, Aeropostale, Nike, Gap and Tommy Hilfiger, the release said. They also found tools commonly used in removing anti-shoplifting devices. Arrested were Lakycra Arie Gardner, 24, of Jacksonville; and Jasmonique Lavon Franklin, 22; Mia Nicole Dock, 19; and Shacarrie Deasia Heyward, 18; and the juvenile, all of Savannah.

At 31, Aja Brown garnered 63.7% of the vote compared with Omar Bradleys 36.2%. Despite her youth, she has about a decade of experience behind her. She founded the Urban Vision CDC in 2011, and worked with the City of Comptons Community Redevelopment Agency as a Redevelopment Project Manager. Some of America is apparently not ready to see an interracial family in its ads. This became apparent after a spew of negative remarks forced the operators of the General Mills Youtube site to disable comments on the commercial. We were trying to portray an American family and there are lots of multi-cultural families in American today,Ž said Camille Gibson, VP of Marketing for General Mills.

Statistics tells us that 75% of our homes have no fathers in them. Statistics tells us that in Duval County the arrest rate for black youth compared to all others is seriously disproportionate and grossly inconsistent in application for the same offenses when compared to others. Statistics tells us that we have a serious domestic violence problem, a serious black on black crime problem and the list goes on. However, statistics did not reveal that blacks are not the ones committing most of the crimes in Jacksonville, but are portrayed as the enemy of the state. Nevertheless, it is important that the faith, economic, political and judicial system relook their approaches to solving the ills of our community. Tomorrow, the faith community through First Coast Christian Outreach, a Leadership Foundation affiliate will conduct the dedication ceremony of the first Nehemiah Family Life Center at 11:00 am to 12:00 pm at 2036 Silver Street, Jacksonville, Florida at Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church. This is a collective effort of faith organizations coming together to implementing changes to help reduce crime, build stronger fathers, and help families. More God, Less Crime. More Love, Less Hate. More Togetherness, Less Divisions. Rev. Peter Church, CEO of FCCO and Pastor R. L. Gundy, Pastor Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church and President SCLC Florida have strategically collaborated with each other and other strategic partners to make a difference. You are invited to attend this dedication ceremony and you are encouraged to model this program and/or become part of the change to help better Jacksonville. For further information, you may call 354-7249 or go on the Nehemiahlifecenter.org. We look forward to seeing you, please come help us help others. R. L.

Deacon Shaw needed to call the Rev. Dr. Lawrence about an urgent problem at the church. He dialed the Rev's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?" Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster,he asked, "Is your Granddaddy at home?" "Yes.", whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" Deacon Shaw asked. To the surprise of the Deacon, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, Deacon. Shaw asked, "Is your grand mommy there?" "Yes," came the answer. "Can I talk to her then?" Again the small voice whispered, "No." Knowing that it was unlikely that a young child would be left home alone, Deacon Shaw felt it best to just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" Deacon Shaw asked the child. "Yes," whispered the child, "A policeman." Wondering what a cop would be doing at his Pastor's home, the Deacon asked, "May I speak with the policeman then?" "No, he's kinda busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" asked Deacon Shaw "Talking to Granddaddy and Grandma and the fireman," came the whispered answer. "What's going on there?" asked Deacon Shaw, now almost scared to death. In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The searching team just pulled up in a Big black van!" Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated Deacon Shaw asked, "Why are they there?" Still whispering, Lil Meechie replied with that smile that looks like the one on the picture along with a muffled giggle, "Theyre looking for me!"

AARP fights for issues that are important to you and your family. Thats why AARP is urging Congress to find sensible solutions for Medicare beneficiaries. AARP opposes Washingtons proposals to raise the eligibility age for Medicare beneficiaries, as well as other reductions in benefits. Instead, AARP is fighting for common-sense solutions that will strengthen Medicare while also reducing the nations budget deficit. Wooden and Holmes will be joined by AARP FL Communications Manager Dave Bruns, wholl update listeners on the latest information on Medicare. Also on June 26, Wooden and Holmes will be joined by AARP Florida Executive Council Member Dr. Brenda Jarmon, a professor at Florida A&M University, to discuss Juneteenth, the holiday in the United States that commemorates the abolition of slavery at the close of the Civil War.

The decision ends a years-long fight between President Barack Obama's administration, which had argued that age limits for the morning-after pill are common sense, and women's rights groups, which insisted the drug should be made as freely available as aspirin. T he Department of Justice, in the latest development in the complex back-andforth over access to the drug, notified U.S. District Judge Edward Korman it will submit a plan for compliance. If he approves it, the department will drop its appeal of his April ruling. According to the department's letter to the judge, the Food and Drug Administration has told the maker of the pills to submit a new drug application with proposed labeling that would permit it to be sold "without a prescription and without age or point-of-sale prescriptions." The FDA said that once it receives the application it "intends to approve it promptly."

You are honored. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Pine Castle Experience When Ok SunBurks called to say that she had accepted the position of Director of Business Development with the organization, my first thought was of a school in Arlington for children with disabilities. I later realized I was thinking of Morning Star School. After visiting the Pine Castle campus during the first of a series of tours aimed at increasing awareness of the 60 year old pioneer of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, aptly named the Pine Castle Experience, the incredible work and caring that permeates the atmosphere leaves an impression that is not easily forgotten. TALK OF THE TOWN! at The Florida Star was invited by Cliff Evans, Director of Development to participate in the event. Hoping to raise friends, not funds,Ž President and Chairman of the Board, Jim Henry a volunteer and board member for 18 years, called Pine Castle a special place where you feel and see the impact of what you do.Ž He wants visitors to tell people what were doing here.Ž Pine Castle did begin as a school in the early 1950s, at a time when children with severe disabilities were kept at home or institutionalized. By 1965, with public schools developing programs for special needs children, Pine Castle turned its focus on serving those who, after graduating, would need to learn practical skills to sustain daily life. The agency is committed to assisting anyone with a disability, regardless of its severity. Services are tailored to address challenges of intellectual disabilities, autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, and traumatic brain injuries. Under the leadership of Jonathan JonŽ May, Executive Director Pine Castle operates on a budget of $4.5 million, 70% of which is state funded. He oversees a staff of more than 100, which includes specialists who administer to the most severely disabled, and programs that provide onsite work and training for nearly 400 participants. The agency also owns and operates five group homes located on and off campus. Jon has partnered with corporate sponsors, such as Winn-Dixie, Publix, Sams Club, PETCO, Firehouse Subs, Medical Management Resources, McDonalds, St. Lukes Hospital, Jaguars Players Cafeteria, and many others to provide community jobs for nearly 100 men and women. On the tour, led by DuVal Malone, Development Director we met Tristan, who came to live at the facility as a frail and non-ambulatory teenager. After a year of oneon-one therapy, Tristan surprised his therapist when he stood to retrieve a ball that rolled past him. Today, he lives at home and participates in adult day programs on campus. We were greeted by Colby, a Special Olympics coach, Civitan member, and presenter and Anna, who performed in GreaseŽ and wants to be a child care teacher. I was thrilled to recognize Dwayne Kendrick who, as a young man, sold The Florida Star from his bicycle all over town! The agency operates shops on campus which provide products to companies and creates jobs for their participants. One shop does electronic wiring for AT&T, while two other shops manufacture and supply wooden stakes used in surveying, construction, and gardening, and commercial mops sold to hospitals, prisons, and schools, such as the Miami-Dade school system. Ok Sun Burks negotiates with customers and manages these shops for the agency. Tommy Holston, Director of Employment Services manages the community employment program which offers staffing/placement services to First Coast employers. Last week Governor Rick Scott chose Pine Castle to announce $36 million in funding for the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) in the 2013-2014 state budget. ADP receives funding from Florida Families First. For the first time in eight years, ADPs budget will include monies which will allow individuals on the waiting list to enroll in the APD Home and Community-Based Services Medicaid waiver so they will receive services in their local communities. Those individuals with the most critical needs will benefit from the new funding. The visiting group included: John Zell, V.P., Development, The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida; Alan Moore; Michelle Dovell; representing Moran Environmental Recovery were Stephen Dovell, President/COO and Leslie Detlefsen, Manager, Sales and Marketing; and Erin Winters, Miss Jacksonville USA 2014 For information about volunteering at Pine Castle, contact DuVal Maloneat (904) 733-2650 or dmalone@pinecastle.org or visit their website at www.pinecastle.org My dad, James Bradley, and me Seann, Volume, and Les Burks L-R:ColbyColligan,AnnaRosado,andMargie Cupp,ProgramDirector,AdultDayTraining JimHenryintroducesthePineCastleExperience DuValMalone,DevelopmentDirector Inthemopshop.

JUNE 15, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 5 FAMU Student Wins Statewide Health Science CompetitionTALLAHASSEE, Fla. „ Florida A&M University (FAMU) doctoral student Terrick Andey recently won first place in the Health Sciences category during the inaugural Statewide Graduate Research Symposium. Hosted by the University of South Florida, the symposium brought together 75 graduate students from various disciplines across eight universities. Andeys poster was titled, Liposomal Annexin A2 Small Hairpin RNA-mediated Inhibition of Angiogenesis in Lung Cancer Stem Cells.Ž I was definitely thrilled to have had those long and lonely hours of research work recognized on such a platform,Ž said Andey, a Ghana native. I perceive the award to be a validation of the progressive research environment that FAMU has has been fostering.Ž Andeys research discusses that one of the major challenges with cancer chemotherapy is the growing incidence of relapse. His study targeted a protein AnnexinA2 by inhibiting its expressing at the molecular level in lung cancer cells. His wor k supports the growing evidence that targets SP cells in tumors, which represents one of the new frontiers in targeted therapy of chemotherapy-resistant cancer. There is growing evidence to support the hypothesis that a subset of a tumor population (side population) is responsible for promoting the resistance observed with many conventional anticancer drugs,Ž the pharmacy student said. Hence, strategies to specifically target these are expected to stem the rising incidence relapse. By silencing AnnexinA2 using short-hairpin RNA specific to AnnexinA2, we were able to inhibit the growth and induce the death of these SPs.Ž Andey attributes his success to the consistent research environment he has been immersed in under FAMU Pharmacy Professor Mandip S. Sachdeva. I appreciate the support of the faculty and staff of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, as well as Dr. Verian Thomas, for putting their bet on me,Ž a humbled Andey said. I am more than what I could have hoped to be because of their investments in me.Ž Terrick Andey Andrew Robinson Elementary celebrated its success as the first DCPS elementary school with a National Elementary Honor Society. Over sixty students were inducted during a special ceremony in November honoring their accomplishments and setting high standards for the current school year. In an effort to broaden their exposure, NEHS students participated in a special field trip to Marine Land and traveled to the University of South Florida for the Annual Engineering Expo. Six of Andrew Robinsons NEHS members (Raleigh Burney, Clinton Forbes, Justin Holliday, Angelica Leach, Cathryn Penn, and Jaiden Session) were recently honored at the University of North Florida for representing the top 5% of their fifth grade class. Recruitment for 2013 -2014 members will begin this summer. Our Youth Andrew Robinson Elementary Honor Society

Four Teens Arrested for Numerous Robberies Four teens who were all related to each other were arrested for committing numerous robberies. A crime spree committed by four teens derailed Tuesday when a man interrupted a burglary at his home. The teens fled, but the alert victim had no problem obtaining their getaway vehicle's license number and passing it and the car's description to the police. A short time later, deputies attempted to stop the suspects, but they sped away. The teens then abandoned their car and tried their luck on foot. But K-9 teams and a helicopter tracked them and the teens were taken into custody. Subsequent interviews with the group revealed they were responsible for many other recent crimes. The victim called 911 and said, "I just got home from work and could see them in the back yard sitting there in their car." "They saw me pull into my driveway and I waited a second and all of the sudden I could hear car doors. They must have been jumping back into the car and they sped out." It was later discovered that the teens had taken electronic game systems, a television, and other items from the home. The victim gave the license number of the silver Chevrolet Sonic and their direction of escape to the dispatcher. That helped police find the car less than 10 minutes later. A deputy attempted a traffic stop, but the suspects accelerated away. However, several other police arrived to the area. The teens turned down another road and discovered that it was a dead end, forcing them to leave the car and run through the nearby woods. A helicopter helped police and K-9 units on the ground to find all four teens. Property stolen from victims home and a separate burglary was found in the car. Investigators then interviewed Toivontae Williams, 19, Travis Williams, 17, Titus Williams, 15, and Chance Williams, 15. All four are said to be related to one another. Investigators have charges pending on the group for multiple crimes in their jurisdiction. Six burglaries have been identified and investigators are working on a stolen vehicle case and two burglaries possibly connected to the teens. So far, all four teens are charged with burglary, grand theft, and resisting an officer without violence. Toivontae Williams also faces charges of fleeing or attempting to elude, no valid drivers license and violation of probation. Additional charges are pending. Toivontae Williams was booked into jail, while the three juveniles were transported to a juvenile detention center.

If you own or manage a business, the fear of a burglary, a robbery or a major shoplifting loss is probably never far from your mind. Odds are, if you are careless, the burglars will hit your business sooner or later-so practice good security. Most often these are crimes of opportunity. They happen because the criminal spots an easy chance and takes it. So make it tough on him or her. Here's how. Doors and windows Use deadbolt locks on all exterior doors. Those with glass should have double cylinder deadbolts. Make sure you check all doors and windows each day, before closing. Develop a system of key security. Make sure all keys issued are signed for and turned in when an employee leaves the company. You may even want to change locks and combinations. Do not identify with what they're used for. If necessary, use a coding system. If you have doors with outside hinges, use non-removable hinge pins. Install panel doors lined with metal to resist drilling. Doors and windows on the sides and rear of a building are often inviting to the burglar because they offer concealment. Steel reinforcing bars on doors and gratings or bars on windows offer good security. Every exterior opening offers a potential point of entry. Do not overlook security at places like fire escapes, skylights, roof openings, air ducts, doorway transoms, loading docks, sidewalk and basement openings. Before you leave, check all potential hiding places, like bathrooms, closets and storage areas. The last thing you want to do is to lock a burglar inside. Using lights Light up all entrances with vandal-proof fixtures. Burglars like a nice dark place in which to work. Keep some lights on inside, and place them near the rear so that an intruder's silhouette can be seen from the street. Alarm systems Install a good alarm system and have it checked regularly. Make sure it is wired to go off at all potential points of entry, including doors, windows, roof openings, loading docks and vents. Your cash Keep as little cash around as possible. Make bank deposits frequently, but, irregularly so as not to establish a discernible pattern. Securely anchor your safe in a highly visible, well-lit location. Empty your cash drawers and leave them open after hours. Keep the premises visible from the street; avoid blocking the interior view with high window displays and/or advertisements on windows. Make sure trees and shrubs around entranceways are trimmed. Don't leave ladders or tools lying around that a burglar could use to help him break in. Safety ManGets 9th DUI A fast food restaurant worker witnessed 58-year-old Phillip P. Jordan nearly falling over and using the door for support when Jordan came to the drive-up window. That worker alerted a police officer The officer conducted a traffic stop and said Jordan had a strong smell of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and his eyes were bloodshot and watery. Jordan failed the field sobriety exercises and he was arrested. Jordan also tried to explain to the officer that the beer he had was actually coffee. Jordan was charged with felony driving under the influence. His bond is set at $15,000. A criminal history check revealed seven convictions for DUI in Georgia and one DUI conviction in Florida. This is his 9th DUI conviction. Phillip Jordan Man Beats Child Violently After Argument A man was arrested after he severely beat his live-in girlfriend's 3 year old son inside their apartment. According to detectives, Dontevious Gardner, 21, and his live-in girlfriend got into an argument in the early evening hours. During the argument, the girlfriend went to her bedroom while her 3-year-old son was in another bedroom. At some point after the victim's mother went to her bedroom, Gardner heard the child crying and went inside the child's room and struck the child numerous times in the head with the heel of his hand. Gardner then forced the child to maintain a push up position until the child went unconscious. After the child went unconscious, Gardner picked the child up and violently shook him trying to wake him. The child remained unresponsive so Gardner took the boy to the bathroom and held him under the shower. When the child did not regain consciousness, Gardner dropped the child resulting in the child striking his head on the edge of the porcelain tub. Gardner went to the mother's bedroom and told her what had happened. The mother immediately called 911 and the child was taken to a local hospital where he is currently in critical condition with severe head trauma. A one-year-old child inside the residence at the time of the incident was not injured and was removed from the home. The child was temporarily placed into a shelter and until further investigation is completed. Detectives obtained enough information including a confession to charge Dontevious Gardner with aggravated child abuse. According to records, Gardner was on probation for unrelated charges of armed carjacking and burglary of an unoccupied dwelling. His probation status was revoked. Gardner is being held with no bond.

JUNE 15, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9Mayor Alvin Brown announced today the creation of the Summer Basketball League for youth ages 10 to 18 years old. Mayor Browns Summer Basketball League will have its first games on July 8 and will culminate with the championship games at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on Aug. 8. This initiative is to help keep the youth in our community focused on doing great things and being fit,Ž Brown said. There are so many lessons that the game of basketball teaches, and creating this league in the summer fills a void that can keep children focused on goals and teamwork.Ž The league will feature four age groups: Under 12, Under 14, Under 16, and Under 18. Teams will sign up through the City of Jacksonville Parks & Recreation Department (JaxParks); the fee is $75 per team. League registration begins today and will continue through June 30. Any individuals looking to join or create a team can contact the Parks & Recreation Department to get more information or visit JaxParks.com.

Please call: Patricia Henry or Steve Wells (904) 598-9196 EMPLOYMENT HUMAN HEALTH Youre a New Dad„Now What?First-time fathers experience many emotions: love, responsibility, protectiveness, and even fear. And, whatever the fathers relationship is with the babys mother, both parents lives are forever changed. But its important to remember that while much of the attention may be on new mothers, fathers can„and do-perform all aspects of child care (except breastfeeding). According to the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC), fathers of infants face special challenges. These tips, when followed, can help reduce stress and build healthy routines. Tip #1: Learn to survive without sleep. Babies do not have established sleep patterns that align with yours. Especially during the first few months, it is important to sleep when you can. If the baby is napping, try to take a nap, too. And, when possible, go to bed early so that when the baby wakes up during the night you will awaken having had some rest. Tip #2: Manage stress. Your baby is 100 percent dependent on others for all of his or her needs. And many of your caregiving responsibilities may be brand new. This can be stressful. Do your best to eat well, exercise, and accept help from others--grandparents, siblings, or close friends--who can give you and the babys mother a break. And, give yourself a break, too. Laundry and other household chores are less important than caring for the baby, the babys mother, and yourself. Tip #3: Share in the feeding. Even if the babys mother is breastfeeding, you can participate by bringing the baby to her or changing the babys diaper. If it is a late-night feeding, you can take the baby afterwards until he has gone to sleep. The more rested each member of the family is, the less stress there will be (see Tips 1 & 2 above). And, if you are both working outside the home, taking turns on late-night baby care will go a long way to ensuring you both have enough sleep to be productive. Tip #4: Establish a routine. We are all creatures of habit. The sooner you establish a routine for the baby the sooner he or she will adopt regular sleeping habits, which will be good for the entire family. Tip #5: Give Mom a break. Take the baby out of the house for an hour or so„for a walk, to the grocery store, wherever„to ensure that Mom has some down time.

On Friday, April 12, 2013 at 9:21 p.m. police were dispatched to 2417 Miss Muffet Lane West In reference to an audible residential burglar alarm. Upon arrival an officer observed a bathroom window broken in the back of the residence. It was later discovered that the victim, Bella Barnat, was located inside the residence deceased as the result of a single gunshot wound to the back of the head. The investigation revealed that the victim lived alone. Crime Scene Detectives recovered a drop of blood from under the mattress that did not belong to the victim. The recovered blood drop was determined to be a DNA CODIS match for the suspect, Francis Lai. On June 13, Lai was located and arrested. A criminal records check revealed that Lai had an outstanding warrant for aggravated battery that had been issued in March. He was then charged with the outstanding warrants and the add-on-charge for murder. Former Florida State Representative and long time radio personality, Andy Johnson is back on the air with his progressive talk radio show. On Thursday, the lines lite up for his show, even while he was out undergoing more health progress. that he is not trying to harass the Republican party members, even though it appeared they were trying to harass President Obama. He added that he had a constructive suggestion that he feel is good for Jacksonville, good for Florida, good for the USA, and good, too, for the Republican Party. Increasingly, he said, the local and state Republican organization will look silly, juvenile, racist, and boneheaded, and hateful...and ridiculous...and mean-spirited... unless the Senate confirms Judge Brian Davis. There is no possible good reason to hold up this process. One has to scratch his head and ask, are the Republicans doing this? Is it because he is black? or, are the Republicans doing this because they like to screw up the process and make government contentious and stupid? or Maybe the Republicans are just flat-out trying to be obstructionist and they just want to block anything and everything, blindly, irrationally, without thinking? Johnson added, I ask you to do the right thing but it is also the politically expedient thing for Republicans. Seriously, I am a Democrat...and if I wanted to be a nasty partisan, then I would hope Davis would never be confirmed, because this blocking of Davis could be a huge vote-getter for the Democrats. Best wishes. Be pushy on things where you are truly motivated by some issue. But don't do childish things like hold up the nomination of one of the most highly qualified judicial appointees in Florida just to play partisan games.

The officer was acting on a tip from an investigation after receiving a report of a shoplifting in progress earlier that day at the Polo Ralph Lauren store at the St. Augustine Premium Outlets. The suspects were later seen leaving in a white Nissan Altima. Inside the vehicle, officers uncovered clothing valued at over $2,500. The items were believed to have been stolen from several stores including Polo, Reebok/Rockport, Aeropostale, Nike, Gap and Tommy Hilfiger, the release said. They also found tools commonly used in removing anti-shoplifting devices. Arrested were Lakycra Arie Gardner, 24, of Jacksonville; and Jasmonique Lavon Franklin, 22; Mia Nicole Dock, 19; and Shacarrie Deasia Heyward, 18; and the juvenile, all of Savannah.

At 31, Aja Brown garnered 63.7% of the vote compared with Omar Bradleys 36.2%. Despite her youth, she has about a decade of experience behind her. She founded the Urban Vision CDC in 2011, and worked with the City of Comptons Community Redevelopment Agency as a Redevelopment Project Manager. Some of America is apparently not ready to see an interracial family in its ads. This became apparent after a spew of negative remarks forced the operators of the General Mills Youtube site to disable comments on the commercial. We were trying to portray an American family and there are lots of multi-cultural families in American today, said Camille Gibson, VP of Marketing for General Mills. The Cheerios ad has been airing for about three weeks now and the company stated it does not plan to discontinue it.Iqurgn"Owuke"Oqwtpu"Fqppc"cpf Fqpcnf"Etggt"Chvgt"Vtcigf{Ejggtkqu"Eqogu"Wpfgt"Hktg Hqt"Okzgf"Hcokn{"Eqoogtekcn Arson is suspected in the death of gospel music veteran Donna Creer and her husband Donald who perished when a blaze engulfed their home in Little Rock, Arkansas on Wednesday.

Statistics tells us that 75% of our homes have no fathers in them. Statistics tells us that in Duval County the arrest rate for black youth compared to all others is seriously disproportionate and grossly inconsistent in application for the same offenses when compared to others. Statistics tells us that we have a serious domestic violence problem, a serious black on black crime problem and the list goes on. However, statistics did not reveal that blacks are not the ones committing most of the crimes in Jacksonville, but are portrayed as the enemy of the state. Nevertheless, it is important that the faith, economic, political and judicial system relook their approaches to solving the ills of our community. Tomorrow, the faith community through First Coast Christian Outreach, a Leadership Foundation affiliate will conduct the dedication ceremony of the first Nehemiah Family Life Center at 11:00 am to 12:00 pm at 2036 Silver Street, Jacksonville, Florida at Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church. This is a collective effort of faith organizations coming together to implementing changes to help reduce crime, build stronger fathers, and help families. More God, Less Crime. More Love, Less Hate. More Togetherness, Less Divisions. Rev. Peter Church, CEO of FCCO and Pastor R. L. Gundy, Pastor Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church and President SCLC Florida have strategically collaborated with each other and other strategic partners to make a difference. You are invited to attend this dedication ceremony and you are encouraged to model this program and/or become part of the change to help better Jacksonville. For further information, you may call 354-7249 or go on the Nehemiahlifecenter.org. We look forward to seeing you, please come help us help others. R. L.

Deacon Shaw needed to call the Rev. Dr. Lawrence about an urgent problem at the church. He dialed the Rev's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?" Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster,he asked, "Is your Granddaddy at home?" "Yes.", whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" Deacon Shaw asked. To the surprise of the Deacon, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, Deacon. Shaw asked, "Is your grand mommy there?" "Yes," came the answer. "Can I talk to her then?" Again the small voice whispered, "No." Knowing that it was unlikely that a young child would be left home alone, Deacon Shaw felt it best to just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" Deacon Shaw asked the child. "Yes," whispered the child, "A policeman." Wondering what a cop would be doing at his Pastor's home, the Deacon asked, "May I speak with the policeman then?" "No, he's kinda busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" asked Deacon Shaw "Talking to Granddaddy and Grandma and the fireman," came the whispered answer. "What's going on there?" asked Deacon Shaw, now almost scared to death. In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The searching team just pulled up in a Big black van!" Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated Deacon Shaw asked, "Why are they there?" Still whispering, Lil Meechie replied with that smile that looks like the one on the picture along with a muffled giggle, "Theyre looking for me!"

The decision ends a years-long fight between President Barack Obama's administration, which had argued that age limits for the morning-after pill are common sense, and women's rights groups, which insisted the drug should be made as freely available as aspirin. T he Department of Justice, in the latest development in the complex back-andforth over access to the drug, notified U.S. District Judge Edward Korman it will submit a plan for compliance. If he approves it, the department will drop its appeal of his April ruling. According to the department's letter to the judge, the Food and Drug Administration has told the maker of the pills to submit a new drug application with proposed labeling that would permit it to be sold "without a prescription and without age or point-of-sale prescriptions." The FDA said that once it receives the application it "intends to approve it promptly."

You are honored. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Pine Castle Experience. When Ok SunBurks called to say that she had accepted the position of Director of Business Development with the organization, my first thought was of a school in Arlington for children with disabilities. I later realized I was thinking of Morning Star School. After visiting the Pine Castle campus during the first of a series of tours aimed at increasing awareness of the 60 year old pioneer of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, aptly named the Pine Castle Experience, the incredible work and caring that permeates the atmosphere leaves an impression that is not easily forgotten. TALK OF THE TOWN! at The Florida Star was invited by Cliff Evans, Director of Development, to participate in the event. Hoping to raise friends, not funds, President and Chairman of the Board, Jim Henry, a volunteer and board member for 18 years, called Pine Castle a special place where you feel and see the impact of what you do. He wants visitors to tell people what were doing here. Pine Castle did begin as a school in the early 1950s, at a time when children with severe disabilities were kept at home or institutionalized. By 1965, with public schools developing programs for special needs children, Pine Castle turned its focus on serving those who, after graduating, would need to learn practical skills to sustain daily life. The agency is committed to assisting anyone with a disability, regardless of its severity. Services are tailored to address challenges of intellectual disabilities, autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, and traumatic brain injuries. Under the leadership of Jonathan Jon May, Executive Director Pine Castle operates on a budget of $4.5 million, 70% of which is state funded. He oversees a staff of more than 100, which includes specialists who administer to the most severely disabled, and programs that provide onsite work and training for nearly 400 participants. The agency also owns and operates five group homes located on and off campus. Jon has partnered with corporate sponsors, such as Winn-Dixie, Publix, Sams Club, PETCO, Firehouse Subs, Medical Management Resources, McDonalds, St. Lukes Hospital, Jaguars Players Cafeteria, and many others to provide community jobs for nearly 100 men and women. On the tour, led by DuVal Malone, Development Director we met Tristan, who came to live at the facility as a frail and non-ambulatory teenager. After a year of oneon-one therapy, Tristan surprised his therapist when he stood to retrieve a ball that rolled past him. Today, he lives at home and participates in adult day programs on campus. We were greeted by Colby, a Special Olympics coach, Civitan member, and presenter and Anna, who performed in Grease and wants to be a child care teacher. I was thrilled to recognize Dwayne Kendrick, who, as a young man, sold The Florida Star from his bicycle all over town! The agency operates shops on campus which provide products to companies and creates jobs for their participants. One shop does electronic wiring for AT&T, while two other shops manufacture and supply wooden stakes used in surveying, construction, and gardening, and commercial mops sold to hospitals, prisons, and schools, such as the Miami-Dade school system. Ok Sun Burks negotiates with customers and manages these shops for the agency. Tommy Holston, Director of Employment Services manages the community employment program which offers staffing/placement services to First Coast employers. Last week Governor Rick Scott chose Pine Castle to announce $36 million in funding for the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) in the 2013-2014 state budget. ADP receives funding from Florida Families First. For the first time in eight years, ADPs budget will include monies which will allow individuals on the waiting list to enroll in the APD Home and Community-Based Services Medicaid waiver so they will receive services in their local communities. Those individuals with the most critical needs will benefit from the new funding. The visiting group included: John Zell, V.P., Development, The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida; Alan Moore; Michelle Dovell; representing Moran Environmental Recovery were Stephen Dovell, President/COO and Leslie Detlefsen, Manager, Sales and Marketing; and Erin Winters, Miss Jacksonville USA 2014.

JUNE 15, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 5 FAMU Student Wins Statewide Health Science CompetitionTALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida A&M University (FAMU) doctoral student Terrick Andey recently won first place in the Health Sciences category during the inaugural Statewide Graduate Research Symposium. Hosted by the University of South Florida, the symposium brought together 75 graduate students from various disciplines across eight universities. Andeys poster was titled, Liposomal Annexin A2 Small Hairpin RNA-mediated Inhibition of Angiogenesis in Lung Cancer Stem Cells. I was definitely thrilled to have had those long and lonely hours of research work recognized on such a platform, said Andey, a Ghana native. I perceive the award to be a validation of the progressive research environment that FAMU has has been fostering. Andeys research discusses that one of the major challenges with cancer chemotherapy is the growing incidence of relapse. His study targeted a protein AnnexinA2 by inhibiting its expressing at the molecular level in lung cancer cells. His wor k supports the growing evidence that targets SP cells in tumors, which represents one of the new frontiers in targeted therapy of chemotherapy-resistant cancer. There is growing evidence to support the hypothesis that a subset of a tumor population (side population) is responsible for promoting the resistance observed with many conventional anticancer drugs, the pharmacy student said. Hence, strategies to specifically target these are expected to stem the rising incidence relapse. By silencing AnnexinA2 using short-hairpin RNA specific to AnnexinA2, we were able to inhibit the growth and induce the death of these SPs. Andey attributes his success to the consistent research environment he has been immersed in under FAMU Pharmacy Professor Mandip S. Sachdeva. I appreciate the support of the faculty and staff of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, as well as Dr. Verian Thomas, for putting their bet on me, a humbled Andey said. I am more than what I could have hoped to be because of their investments in me. Terrick Andey Andrew Robinson Elementary celebrated its success as the first DCPS elementary school with a National Elementary Honor Society. Over sixty students were inducted during a special ceremony in November honoring their accomplishments and setting high standards for the current school year. In an effort to broaden their exposure, NEHS students participated in a special field trip to Marine Land and traveled to the University of South Florida for the Annual Engineering Expo. Six of Andrew Robinsons NEHS members (Raleigh Burney, Clinton Forbes, Justin Holliday, Angelica Leach, Cathryn Penn, and Jaiden Session) were recently honored at the University of North Florida for representing the top 5% of their fifth grade class. Recruitment for 2013 -2014 members will begin this summer. Our Youth Andrew Robinson Elementary Honor Society

Four Teens Arrested for Numerous Robberies Four teens who were all related to each other were arrested for committing numerous robberies. A crime spree committed by four teens derailed Tuesday when a man interrupted a burglary at his home. The teens fled, but the alert victim had no problem obtaining their getaway vehicle's license number and passing it and the car's description to the police. A short time later, deputies attempted to stop the suspects, but they sped away. The teens then abandoned their car and tried their luck on foot. But K-9 teams and a helicopter tracked them and the teens were taken into custody. Subsequent interviews with the group revealed they were responsible for many other recent crimes. The victim called 911 and said, "I just got home from work and could see them in the back yard sitting there in their car." "They saw me pull into my driveway and I waited a second and all of the sudden I could hear car doors. They must have been jumping back into the car and they sped out." It was later discovered that the teens had taken electronic game systems, a television, and other items from the home. The victim gave the license number of the silver Chevrolet Sonic and their direction of escape to the dispatcher. That helped police find the car less than 10 minutes later. A deputy attempted a traffic stop, but the suspects accelerated away. However, several other police arrived to the area. The teens turned down another road and discovered that it was a dead end, forcing them to leave the car and run through the nearby woods. A helicopter helped police and K-9 units on the ground to find all four teens. Property stolen from victims home and a separate burglary was found in the car. Investigators then interviewed Toivontae Williams, 19, Travis Williams, 17, Titus Williams, 15, and Chance Williams, 15. All four are said to be related to one another. Investigators have charges pending on the group for multiple crimes in their jurisdiction. Six burglaries have been identified and investigators are working on a stolen vehicle case and two burglaries possibly connected to the teens. So far, all four teens are charged with burglary, grand theft, and resisting an officer without violence. Toivontae Williams also faces charges of fleeing or attempting to elude, no valid drivers license and violation of probation. Additional charges are pending. Toivontae Williams was booked into jail, while the three juveniles were transported to a juvenile detention center.

Briggs Offense: Carrying Concealed Firearm Name: Jeremy Brown Offense: Resisting Officer w/Violence, Grand Theft Motor Vehicle, Felony Flee from Officer Name: Cheryll Andrews Offense: Grand Theft Motor Vehicle Dont Invite Thieves to your Business! If you own or manage a business, the fear of a burglary, a robbery or a major shoplifting loss is probably never far from your mind. Odds are, if you are careless, the burglars will hit your business sooner or later-so practice good security. Most often these are crimes of opportunity. They happen because the criminal spots an easy chance and takes it. So make it tough on him or her. Here's how. Doors and windows Use deadbolt locks on all exterior doors. Those with glass should have double cylinder deadbolts. Make sure you check all doors and windows each day, before closing. Develop a system of key security. Make sure all keys issued are signed for and turned in when an employee leaves the company. You may even want to change locks and combinations. Do not identify with what they're used for. If necessary, use a coding system. If you have doors with outside hinges, use non-removable hinge pins. Install panel doors lined with metal to resist drilling. Doors and windows on the sides and rear of a building are often inviting to the burglar because they offer concealment. Steel reinforcing bars on doors and gratings or bars on windows offer good security. Every exterior opening offers a potential point of entry. Do not overlook security at places like fire escapes, skylights, roof openings, air ducts, doorway transoms, loading docks, sidewalk and basement openings. Before you leave, check all potential hiding places, like bathrooms, closets and storage areas. The last thing you want to do is to lock a burglar inside. Using lights Light up all entrances with vandal-proof fixtures. Burglars like a nice dark place in which to work. Keep some lights on inside, and place them near the rear so that an intruder's silhouette can be seen from the street. Alarm systems Install a good alarm system and have it checked regularly. Make sure it is wired to go off at all potential points of entry, including doors, windows, roof openings, loading docks and vents. Your cash Keep as little cash around as possible. Make bank deposits frequently, but, irregularly so as not to establish a discernible pattern. Securely anchor your safe in a highly visible, well-lit location. Empty your cash drawers and leave them open after hours. Keep the premises visible from the street; avoid blocking the interior view with high window displays and/or advertisements on windows. Make sure trees and shrubs around entranceways are trimmed. Don't leave ladders or tools lying around that a burglar could use to help him break in. Safety ManGets 9th DUI A fast food restaurant worker witnessed 58-year-old Phillip P. Jordan nearly falling over and using the door for support when Jordan came to the drive-up window. That worker alerted a police officer The officer conducted a traffic stop and said Jordan had a strong smell of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and his eyes were bloodshot and watery. Jordan failed the field sobriety exercises and he was arrested. Jordan also tried to explain to the officer that the beer he had was actually coffee. Jordan was charged with felony driving under the influence. His bond is set at $15,000. A criminal history check revealed seven convictions for DUI in Georgia and one DUI conviction in Florida. This is his 9th DUI conviction. Phillip Jordan Man Beats Child Violently After Argument A man was arrested after he severely beat his live-in girlfriend's 3 year old son inside their apartment. According to detectives, Dontevious Gardner, 21, and his live-in girlfriend got into an argument in the early evening hours. During the argument, the girlfriend went to her bedroom while her 3-year-old son was in another bedroom. At some point after the victim's mother went to her bedroom, Gardner heard the child crying and went inside the child's room and struck the child numerous times in the head with the heel of his hand. Gardner then forced the child to maintain a push up position until the child went unconscious. After the child went unconscious, Gardner picked the child up and violently shook him trying to wake him. The child remained unresponsive so Gardner took the boy to the bathroom and held him under the shower. When the child did not regain consciousness, Gardner dropped the child resulting in the child striking his head on the edge of the porcelain tub. Gardner went to the mother's bedroom and told her what had happened. The mother immediately called 911 and the child was taken to a local hospital where he is currently in critical condition with severe head trauma. A one-year-old child inside the residence at the time of the incident was not injured and was removed from the home. The child was temporarily placed into a shelter and until further investigation is completed. Detectives obtained enough information including a confession to charge Dontevious Gardner with aggravated child abuse. According to records, Gardner was on probation for unrelated charges of armed carjacking and burglary of an unoccupied dwelling. His probation status was revoked. Gardner is being held with no bond.

JUNE 15, 2013 THESTAR PAGEMayor Alvin Brown announced today the creation of the Summer Basketball League for youth ages 10 to 18 years old. Mayor Browns Summer Basketball League will have its first games on July 8 and will culminate with the championship games at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on Aug. 8. This initiative is to help keep the youth in our community focused on doing great things and being fit, Brown said. There are so many lessons that the game of basketball teaches, and creating this league in the summer fills a void that can keep children focused on goals and teamwork. The league will feature four age groups: Under 12, Under 14, Under 16, and Under 18. Teams will sign up through the City of Jacksonville Parks & Recreation Department (JaxParks); the fee is $75 per team. League registration begins today and will continue through June 30. Any individuals looking to join or create a team can contact the Parks & Recreation Department to get more information or visit JaxParks.com. And it all comes down to the Miami Heat looking for a championship trophy against the San Antonio Spurs. The first game was played on Thursday in Florida and if fans have their way. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh will easily be able to keep the title in the city. In what has been considered the biggest OMG(oh my gosh)moment of fandemonium, boxer great Floyd Mayweather reportedly made a million dollar bet that the Heat would make it to the finals. His is said to have put down a whopping $5.9 million on the Heat winning over Indiana Pacers according to Vegas Gambling Steam, and walked away with a $65 million profit. He posted the photo on the right on Twitter. Even legendary NBAcoach Phil Jackson, the man who is credited as crown behind the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers peak winning streaks, has said something about the final two teams standing. He is said to have chosen the Spurs to take the title. The Spurs have only won Championship tites in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007. The Heat on the other hand have only won two titles, one in 2006 and last year with star player James in 2012.

Please call: Patricia Henry or Steve Wells (904) 598-9196 EMPLOYMENT HUMAN HEALTH Youre a New DadNow What?First-time fathers experience many emotions: love, responsibility, protectiveness, and even fear. And, whatever the fathers relationship is with the babys mother, both parents lives are forever changed. But its important to remember that while much of the attention may be on new mothers, fathers canand do-perform all aspects of child care (except breastfeeding). According to the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC), fathers of infants face special challenges. These tips, when followed, can help reduce stress and build healthy routines. Tip #1: Learn to survive without sleep. Babies do not have established sleep patterns that align with yours. Especially during the first few months, it is important to sleep when you can. If the baby is napping, try to take a nap, too. And, when possible, go to bed early so that when the baby wakes up during the night you will awaken having had some rest. Tip #2: Manage stress. Your baby is 100 percent dependent on others for all of his or her needs. And many of your caregiving responsibilities may be brand new. This can be stressful. Do your best to eat well, exercise, and accept help from others--grandparents, siblings, or close friends--who can give you and the babys mother a break. And, give yourself a break, too. Laundry and other household chores are less important than caring for the baby, the babys mother, and yourself. Tip #3: Share in the feeding. Even if the babys mother is breastfeeding, you can participate by bringing the baby to her or changing the babys diaper. If it is a late-night feeding, you can take the baby afterwards until he has gone to sleep. The more rested each member of the family is, the less stress there will be (see Tips 1 & 2 above). And, if you are both working outside the home, taking turns on late-night baby care will go a long way to ensuring you both have enough sleep to be productive. Tip #4: Establish a routine. We are all creatures of habit. The sooner you establish a routine for the baby the sooner he or she will adopt regular sleeping habits, which will be good for the entire family. Tip #5: Give Mom a break. Take the baby out of the house for an hour or sofor a walk, to the grocery store, whereverto ensure that Mom has some down time. More importantly, this will provide you with one-on-one baby time. Visit www.fatherhood.gov or call 877-4DAD411 for Tip 6 10).
