Smith, 56, befriended Cherish and her mother at a Dollar General store and "offered to take them to Walmart and buy her family some clothes," Williams said. "They appeared to be down on their luck and he could help them out." Smith has been a registered sex offender since 1992. Within hours, police found her body. She was 8 years old. A man pulled his car up even with a mother and her children, jumped out, grabbed the child, who was 7, and threw her into the trunk of his car. The stunned mother's screams alerted a nearby resident, who called 911. The girl managed to get away: "Fortunately, the victim was somehow able to open the trunk of the car from inside, and jump out of the vehicle as the suspect drove away." The girl had only minor scratches from the kidnapping attempt and escaped. An abandoned toddler was found asleep about 3 a.m. today outside the Osceola Square Mall, according to Kissimmee police. The 2-year-old child had been spotted earlier in the night wandering outside the closed mall after being seen walking in the area with a shirtless man. When a witness called police at 2:42 a.m., officers found the girl asleep on the ground or pavement in front of the mall's Ross Dress for Less store. The mother and her boyfriend were both arrested. In the last year, there have been more than a dozen hazing incidents around the country involving high school boys who have sodomized other boys with foreign objects, reports Bloomberg. Over 40 boys have been reported victims. Most have been younger students. -A St. Petersburg mother hopes her story cautions parents to the dangers social media and sex predators. Michael Jerome Bradley, 23, was arrested on Friday after being accused of trying to lure her daughter into having sex. "I unlocked her phone and I discovered a grown man on Facebook trying to befriend her," said the mother who identified herself only as Caroline to protect the identity of her daughter..She said her 11-year-old daughter defied her order and created a Facebook account This is summer time, we must work together and protect our children.

Within a short time of the burglaries, on the same day, an unknown white female driving a black SUV, possibly a Lincoln Navigator, used checks and driver licenses stolen from the victims to cash several checks at area banks. Anyone who has any information about the identity or location of the suspect or vehicle is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or email us at JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. George Zimmerman in court with no expression, Trayvon Martin, who cannot give his story and his close friend, Rachel Jeantel, 19. It is amazing that the Supreme Court just ruled that there are certain rules no longer needed because the United States of America has changed. The telephone lines at the Florida Star is ringing more than ever as television viewers, radio listeners and social media users, non-stop, are keeping up with the George Zimmerman trial even more than they did the O J Simpson trial. After Rachel Jeantel gave her statements as a 19-year-old teen who wont finish high school until next year,. This means, even though she knows three languages, she is not yet an adult. But you would not know that as you watch how she is drilled on the stand. But, she stood her ground for her lost friend, Trayvon. In spite of the evidence, including the fact that Martin was much smaller than Zimmerman who was armed with a loaded weapon, with no safety on. As one caller said, why would a man, larger than the person he is after, yell for help while carrying a loaded gun? Why would Trayvon circle back to attack Zimmerman? This is what the defense is trying to portray. Will it work? What kind of miracle is needed for the jury to see reality? Those are the questions in the mind of so many. We dont know how long this trial will last. We can only keep the faith. A 17 year old lost his life just because he chose to go the store and please his future, little brother.Rtqvgevkpi"Qwt"Ejknftgp"/"Jqy:/[gct/Qnf"Mknngf"qp"Pqtvjukfg"d{"Ugz"Qhhgpfgt 9/[gct/Qnf"Guecrgf"htqo"Vtwpm"qh"Ect 4/[gct/Qnf"nghv"vq"unggr"kp"htqpv"qh"Hnqtkfc"Ocnn Cpcn"Jc|kpi"c"Pgy"Vjkpi Oqo"Pcdu"Cnngigf"Ugz"Qhhgpfgt Uwrtgog"Eqwtv"Uvtkmgu"Fqyp"Mg{ Ugevkqp"qh"Xqvkpi"Tkijvu"CevIn a landmark ruling on Tuesday, the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, ruling it unconstitutional. The Supreme court ruled in a 5-4 decision that states covered by section 5 of the Voting Rights Act can be released from the requirement that all changes to voting laws and procedures get advance approval from the Justice Department or a panel of federal judges. The majority on the court took the opinion that when Congress reauthorized the act in 2006, it did not have a basis for re-adopting the antiquated formula. Those who challenged the Voting Rights Act preclearance guidelines said the measures were no longer needed and that Section 5 unfairly punished states that were covered under the provision by singling them out.Rcwnc"Fggp"Fworgf"D{"Jqog"Fgrqv"Cpf"Fkc/ dgvgu"Ftwi"Eqorcp{"Pqxq"Pqtfkum"Cu"Vctigv.

Lisa Jackson, a former manager at Deen's restaurants in Savannah, Georgia, is suing the celebrity chef and her brother, Earl "Bubba" Hiers (no we did not make that name up), for $1.2 million for sexual and racial harassment. So far, Jackson seems to have a pretty good case. A deposition from May has surfaced in which Deen admits not only to using the N-word, but also to making racist and anti-Semetic jokes. According to the transcript, when a lawyer asks her point blank if she has ever used the N-word herself, Deen doesn't miss a beat. "Yes, of course." She has since apologized.

About the Justice Coalition Founded in 1995, the Justice Coalition is a grass-roots organization seeking rights for victims in the criminal justice system. Founder Ted M. Hires, Sr. discovered when he and his staff were brutally victimized by armed robbers, the victims of crime had virtually no place in the process of dispensing justice. He created the Justice Coalition to help victims of violent crime throughout Northeast Florida. The Coalition keeps the public informed and involved through its monthly newspaper, Victims Advocate. The Coalition, its founder, and some of the members have won numerous local and national awards stemming from their activities in the area of community involvement. The FBI honored Ted Hires with the Directors Award for Community Leadership, bestowed by Director Louis Freeh, in 1997. Executive Director Ann Dugger received the same award in 2009.

again? Who? Terry Fields, Pat Lockett Felder, and down the road when things change we have others who want to fill political offices as professional politicians. Are we recycling or are we looking for results. Who is really best for the job and the community? Shall we go a little further? Recently there has been a lot of criticism of the Mayor of Jacksonville. Much of it is unwarranted, but it is a fact. Some of it is politically motivated and some of it is because the new Mayor did not allow those who were milking the city coffins of money over the years were cut off. Just check the budgets. The corruption in the city has been cleaned up. The budget in the city has been reduced. The out of control pension funds have been stopped and we have a government that is inclusive of everyone. Click, and hopefully we have a new City Council President that will not have the racial overtures that Mr. Bill Bishop did. Yes, I said it! He was not inclusive; he was stubborn and needs to get out of politics. In closing the Sheriff Office still has a long way to go when it comes to fairness and openness. The office still does not have independent investigations when police shootings occur. The office has shut out the media, close down the hearings on officers, and shut down police reports. Talking about bad perceptions and mistrust? Now maybe the new media gets it as well, Americans of African descent has complained for decades. Open and consistency produce trust. In the case of the Sheriff Office, we cannot find it. To further complicate the matter, the Sheriff Office and State Attorneys office are too friendly and too close. It does not leave room for proper accountability. They have had a free political ride long enough and needs to come under the eyes of the Justice Department sooner than later. Just an opinion, what is yours? Here are our ratings for now: Mayors Office B+; School Superintendent B+; Paul Wright Cat best; Constance Hall C; Sheriff C(Openness … F); Bill Bishop President City Council D(Bad Attitude); Reggie Brown C-; E. Denise Lee (On her way out); Warren Jones (On his way out); Dr. Johnnie Gaffney C-; (On his way out); and do you believe City Councilwoman Daniels wants to support the Confederacy occupying the old Army national Guard Building downtown, while we have a school named after Nathan Bedford Forrest … founder of the Ku Klux Klan who was a slave owner, women rapper, and murderer and truly a bad image for Jacksonville, and now she wants to say, she is supporting her constituency. Shall we stop by the State Representatives Offices; Mia Jones B; Reggie Fullwood C-; and let us not forget Senator Audrey Gibson C; and finally Congresswoman Corrine Brown, what do you think? A, B, C? Ask yourselves a question, when was the last time your political representatives conducted a consistent community meeting with you and ask you your opinion on something, or do you just trust their decision for you? Every one of our politicians need to meet more with the community and keep us more informed, and listen to our real needs. They work for us; we do not work for them. Once again, just an opinion, what is yours? These ratings are based on communication, visibility, legislative actions, informing the community and fulfilling promises. By the way, SCLC-C; NAACP-C! We can all do better! Do not get mad; let us get to work. We are all in this together. We must stop hiding behind the truths. We must face realities and fix our real problems. It could start by the City Council is they have not already accomplished this, developing a proclamation to apology for the oppressions of the past in this city and the racial motivations behind the Consolidated Government.

The rating was not as good as it could have been, but who did either one of you talk to before you made your decision. Did it dawn upon either of you that maybe the community does not agree with your decision? By the way, do not say we are not hearing or getting what you get to make your decision. Was your decisions based upon facts, personality or the fact that we are finally changing the culture in the School System.

PAGE 4THE STARJUNE 29, 2013 Celebrating African-American Music Appreciation Month Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.Celebrating African-American Music Appreciation Month andƒ I like watching television competitions like Dancing with The Stars,Ž So You Think You Can Dance,Ž and The VoiceŽ (notice that American IdolŽ and Americas Got TalentŽ did not make the list. Waste of time, space, and continuum). A couple of years ago, the good list WOULD have included a unique acapella singing show on NBC called The Sing-Off. Unlike the doo-wop groups of the 50s and 60s that used blended harmonies to produce songs without musical instruments, these new age groups give great vocal harmonies combined with rhythmic and instrumental effects using their mouths to create the sounds of full orchestral accompaniment! Folks, nobody does it better than Traces of Blue the acapella group of ten members that competed on the third season of The Sing-Off in 2011. On the show they performed as Afro Blue, an award-winning jazz vocal ensemble created by Professor Connaitre Miller an associate professor and coordinator of jazz vocal studies at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Professor Miller formed the performance group from current and former members of her jazz vocal workshops and submitted an audition tape at the request of an NBC casting agent. Frankly, they had me at the mention of Howard University when they were introduced on the first show. When lead singer Christie Dashiell and the smooth as silk harmonies of her comrades bopped through a jazzy rendition of Corinne Bailey Rays Put Your Records On,Ž I was firmly committed to see them through to the end, because I expected them to win. Through ten nail-biting weeks Afro Blue gave incredible performance after incredible performance. It seemed unreal when they were eliminated in that tenth week. They were among the four remaining competitors and a win would have put them in the finals. For that show, they masterfully arranged a medley of I Believe I Can FlyŽ by R. Kelly and FlyŽ by Nicki Minaj. Each group had to also prepare a second song and Afro Blues was a brilliant rendition of Sam Cooks A Change Is Gonna ComeŽ (which Im listening to as we speak. OMG!). Afro Blue was invited to sing with special guest Smokey Robinson on the finale show. Their performance of Smokeys You Really Got a Hold on MeŽ was nothing short of amazing! In my opinion, the invitation and pairing was a mea culpa from the producers for the error in judgment by two judges who did not support Afro Blue as finalists. So there! In February the group, renamed Traces of Blue, came to Jacksonville to conduct a master class and to perform at the Ritz Theater and Museum. I arranged to talk with them in person about their time on the show and what it meant to them. They are still a group of ten, but weather caused travel delays for three of them. I chatted with Eliza Bekron, Trenton TrentŽ Cokley, Mariah Maxwell (the youngun of the group and vocal giant), John Kenniebrew, Christie Dashiell (a vocal enchantress, who sang lead on most of the arrangements), Integriti Reeves, and Devin Robinson Not present were Reginald ReggieŽ Bowens (the human percussionist), Danielle Withers (who sang and pranced to Whitneys I Wanna Dance With SomebodyŽ), and Brian Vickers. Surprisingly, most of them were unaware of the competition until Professor Miller approached them about producing an audition tape for the show. While they had appeared at the Kennedy Center and other prestigious venues in the D. C. area, the show put them on a national stage which did bring about jitters for some (but I can attest was not evident in their performances). Creating arrangements for vocal performances was familiar to them, but the added choreoŽ sessions to enhance stage performances were a new element. The hectic schedule was also something they had to adjust to. They would spend their days arranging and rehearsing the song(s) they or the judges chose and tape shows on Fridays. Additionally, all the contestants performed a medley of songs and choreography together at the top of each show. My cousins Barbara and Ronald Breaker attended TOBs performance at the Ritz and became instant fans. Barbara says she sat there amazed at how effortlessly the group transitioned through the songs with perfect notes and an energy that demonstrated their love for the art form. As a matter of fact, when TOB was asked about their next plans, Trent Cokley said they would individually pursue professions, i.e. teaching and audio engineering, but the group enjoys singing together, which caused Christie to exclaim, Gonna take this ride together.Ž Truer words were sung in an emotional interpretation of Lady Antebellums Need You NowŽ, brilliantly led by Trent and Christie, which left each member (and me) in tears afterwards. STOP THE PRESSES! Im watching YouTube video of their show at the Ritz! OMG! Keep on Pushing.Ž So, Reggie is more than just a human beat box! I am happy to be able to catch their performance here. But, lets not forget that the production of music is expensive and they cant get paid from free videos on the tube. We Must Support This Good Music. When asked what they want people to feel about their music the reply was, Loved, peace, and to be on the lips of everyone who loves music!Ž Be sure to visit their website, www.tracesofblue.com to learn how we can help them get their first Traces of Blue recording off the ground. You can also purchase their songs from The Sing-Off on iTunes (I hope they see some of that money).

Two Women Run Illegal Living Facilities for Elderly Two women were arrested for running an illegal business and taking advantage of the elderly. Police worked in conjunction with the Medicaid Fraud Unit of the Attorney Generals Office, Agency for Healthcare Administration and the Florida Department of Children and Family Services, to arrest Mary Alexander, 46, and Tara Tennille Collins-Johnson, 30. According to reports, they have been illegally operating assisted living facilities without a license and neglect of an elderly/disabled person. Several victims were interviewed and stated that as many as 12 people were living in a single family dwelling and in some instances, they were living in the garage section of the home. The food and medications in the homes were kept under lock and key with only the house manager having access. The manager would also provide transportation to appointments without the proper license. In some cases it was reported that the homes were infested with roaches and bed bugs and nothing was done about it. The housing conditions were reported to be horrible. Most of the residents were targeted because of their low income status. If the disabled person received $917 a month from Social Security, their check would be cashed and $35-$40 might be given back to them for spending money. The remainder went directly back to the Alexander and Johnson for payment to live there. The homes were previously inspected by the Agency for Healthcare Administration and a Cease and Desist Order was given for operating an assisted living facility without a license. However that order was ignored and the homes remained open. Both suspects have been arrested in the past for these same violations, but they continued to operate the facilities. Alexander and Johnson were both arrested and charged with two counts of unlicensed operation of an assisted living facility and one count of neglect of an elderly or disabled adult.

The caller tells the citizens to press certain keys and follow a set of directions. Once the citizen does what the caller asks, their computer is taken over.Ž This is one of the many dangers that your computer may come across. Remember these important tips for setting up a secure computer system and operating your home computer: Keep Your Firewall Turned On : A firewall helps protect your computer from hackers who might try to gain access to crash it, delete information, or even steal passwords or other sensitive information. Software firewalls are widely recommended for single computers. The software is prepackaged on some operating systems or can be purchased for individual computers. For multiple networked computers, hardware routers typically provide firewall protection. Install or Update Your Antivirus Software : Antivirus software is designed to prevent malicious software programs from embedding on your computer. If it detects malicious code, like a virus or a worm, it works to disarm or remove it. Viruses can infect computers without users' knowledge. Most types of antivirus software can be set up to update automatically. Install or Update Your Antispyware Technology : Spyware is just what it sounds like„software that is surreptitiously installed on your computer to let others peer into your activities on the computer. Some spyware collects information about you without your consent or produces unwanted pop-up ads on your web browser. Some operating systems offer free spyware protection, and inexpensive software is readily available for download on the Internet or at your local computer store. Be wary of ads on the Internet offering downloadable antispyware„in some cases these products may be fake and may actually contain spyware or other malicious code. It's like buying groceries„shop where you trust. Keep Your Operating System Up to Date: Computer operating systems are periodically updated to stay in tune with technology requirements and to fix security holes. Be sure to install the updates to ensure your computer has the latest protection. Be Careful What You Download : Carelessly downloading e-mail attachments can circumvent even the most vigilant anti-virus software. Never open an e-mail attachment from someone you don't know, and be wary of forwarded attachments from people you do know. They may have unwittingly advanced malicious code. Turn Off Your Computer : With the growth of high-speed Internet connections, many opt to leave their computers on and ready for action. The downside is that being "always on" renders computers more susceptible. Beyond firewall protection, which is designed to fend off unwanted attacks, turning the computer off effectively severs an attacker's connection„be it spyware or a botnet that employs your computer's resources to reach out to other unwitting users. Safety One of Two Suspects of Home Invasion Robbery Arrested At the time of the home invasion, the 15-year-old victim sent a text message to her parents and called 911. When the parents arrived home, the father gave chase to two suspects. One suspect reportedly fired a gun at the father. The mother gave chase to the third suspect. Each suspect was able to get away. Evidence and witness statements collected at the scene helped to identify Bingham as one of the three suspects. Anthony Alexander Bingham, 22 was arrested at 5 p.m. two days after the robbery. Detectives interviewed him about the armed home invasion robbery, which he denied. He said he knew the family of the home and that the father had given him $100 after he was released from jail the previous weekend. Bingham is suspected of joining two others in the act of breaking into the home, placing a gun to a teenagers head and committing robbery. Bingham was arrested and charged with home invasion robbery. He is being held without bond. Anthony Bingham Robber Crashes After Fleeing from Two Armed Robberies A man was arrested after fleeing from two armed robberies. At approximately 10:50 p.m., Allan Stinson, 20, confronted an employee as he was walking in the back door of a restaurant. Stinson brandished a firearm and grabbed the employee by the collar. He then attempted to force the victim into the business at gunpoint and a struggle ensued. The store manager heard the commotion and pulled the victim inside and both were able to escape out the front door. Stinson entered the restaurant wearing a mask and gloves but did not obtain any property. He then fled on foot. The next morning just before 7 a.m., Stinson went into a Steak n Shake restaurant and stole money from the cashier at gunpoint. Stinson fled on foot but was quickly spotted by police as he was getting into a 2001 Nissan Sentra nearby. Police were preparing to conduct a felony stop on Stinson's vehicle but Stinson began pointing a fully loaded .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun at them as he drove away. The officers backed off to a safe distance and began pursuing Stinson with assistance of an Aviation Unit. Police pursued Stinson in his vehicle for approximately 5-10 minutes until Stinson lost control and crashed. Stinson's vehicle left the roadway and rolled at least once landing in an upside down position. Stinson managed to crawl from the wreckage and run into a small pond next to the crash site. Responding officers quickly ran in behind Stinson and pulled him from the water. Stinson was arrested without further incident. During the recovery of the 2001 Nissan Sentra, cash and a loaded semi-automatic handgun believed to be used in the robbery and pointed at deputies was recovered. It is still unclear if Stinson fired any rounds at the deputies. There were no reported injuries in the robbery or the pursuit. There was no reported damage to any personal property other than the suspect's vehicle in the crash. Stinson was arrested and charged with three counts of armed robbery with a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, aggravated assault upon a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing to elude, no valid drivers license, four counts of obstructing or opposing an officer with violence, and battery on a law enforcement officer.

She was the recipient of the SIAC Field Athlete of the Year while competing at the 2013 SIAC championship in Atlanta, Georgia. Johnsons jump of 6.28 meters (207Ž) and an automatic qualifying mark placed her in the top 2 ranking in the NCAA Division II in the nation.

As a father I can't imagine the confusion that was racing through he r little mind, wondering how someone she obviously trusted, someone she believed would help her coul d torture her in such a way. Like most of you I was in praye r when I heard about the dissappearance of little 8 year ol d Cherish Perriwinkle. And like many of you I went before the father and begged that he'd bring this beautiful innocent child home to her family who loves her, but that wasn't the case. According to police what we know is that Cherish an d her family were lured to an area Walmart by convicte d sex offender, 56 year old Donald Smith. Smith promise d the family much needed help, telling them he had a giftcard that he'd use to get them some necessary items. But that wasn't the case. Hours after Cherish left with Smith to get something to eat her body was found, dumped at an area church. He discarded her as if she was nothing. I was frozen when I heard the news. This was something that I prayed about. One of my friends online aske d how could God let this happen? Did God let this happen? Please understand the God we serve is mighty an d Sovereign. We will never understand why some prayers are anwered while others are not, but what we do know is that in his word He tells us in Isaiah 46:10 that He declares the end from the beginning, and his purpose an d pleasure will be accomplished. This can be very difficul t to digest with our human finite minds in such a tumultuous and heart breaking time. But, the comfort is in knowing God is not out of touch with our hurts or weaknesses. God The Father allowed the gruesome murdering of His Only Begotten Son so that He could justify guilty sinners such as you and I. Now is a time to band together in prayer for this family and plead with God for their salvation if they are lost. Pray that God's Peace comforts them and that He woul d be glorified even in such a tragic situation.

Smith, 56, befriended Cherish and her mother at a Dollar General store and "offered to take them to Walmart and buy her family some clothes," Williams said. "They appeared to be down on their luck and he could help them out." Smith has been a registered sex offender since 1992. Within hours, police found her body. She was 8 years old. A man pulled his car up even with a mother and her children, jumped out, grabbed the child, who was 7, and threw her into the trunk of his car. The stunned mother's screams alerted a nearby resident, who called 911. The girl managed to get away: "Fortunately, the victim was somehow able to open the trunk of the car from inside, and jump out of the vehicle as the suspect drove away." The girl had only minor scratches from the kidnapping attempt and escaped. An abandoned toddler was found asleep about 3 a.m. today outside the Osceola Square Mall, according to Kissimmee police. The 2-year-old child had been spotted earlier in the night wandering outside the closed mall after being seen walking in the area with a shirtless man. When a witness called police at 2:42 a.m., officers found the girl asleep on the ground or pavement in front of the mall's Ross Dress for Less store. The mother and her boyfriend were both arrested. In the last year, there have been more than a dozen hazing incidents around the country involving high school boys who have sodomized other boys with foreign objects, reports Bloomberg. Over 40 boys have been reported victims. Most have been younger students. -A St. Petersburg mother hopes her story cautions parents to the dangers social media and sex predators. Michael Jerome Bradley, 23, was arrested on Friday after being accused of trying to lure her daughter into having sex. "I unlocked her phone and I discovered a grown man on Facebook trying to befriend her," said the mother who identified herself only as Caroline to protect the identity of her daughter..She said her 11-year-old daughter defied her order and created a Facebook account This is summer time, we must work together and protect our children.

Within a short time of the burglaries, on the same day, an unknown white female driving a black SUV, possibly a Lincoln Navigator, used checks and driver licenses stolen from the victims to cash several checks at area banks. Anyone who has any information about the identity or location of the suspect or vehicle is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or email us at JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. George Zimmerman in court with no expression, Trayvon Martin, who cannot give his story and his close friend, Rachel Jeantel, 19. It is amazing that the Supreme Court just ruled that there are certain rules no longer needed because the United States of America has changed. The telephone lines at the Florida Star is ringing more than ever as television viewers, radio listeners and social media users, non-stop, are keeping up with the George Zimmerman trial even more than they did the O J Simpson trial. After Rachel Jeantel gave her statements as a 19-year-old teen who wont finish high school until next year,. This means, even though she knows three languages, she is not yet an adult. But you would not know that as you watch how she is drilled on the stand. But, she stood her ground for her lost friend, Trayvon. In spite of the evidence, including the fact that Martin was much smaller than Zimmerman who was armed with a loaded weapon, with no safety on. As one caller said, why would a man, larger than the person he is after, yell for help while carrying a loaded gun? Why would Trayvon circle back to attack Zimmerman? This is what the defense is trying to portray. Will it work? What kind of miracle is needed for the jury to see reality? Those are the questions in the mind of so many. We dont know how long this trial will last. We can only keep the faith. A 17 year old lost his life just because he chose to go the store and please his future, little brother.Rtqvgevkpi"Qwt"Ejknftgp"/"Jqy:/[gct/Qnf"Mknngf"qp"Pqtvjukfg"d{"Ugz"Qhhgpfgt 9/[gct/Qnf"Guecrgf"htqo"Vtwpm"qh"Ect 4/[gct/Qnf"nghv"vq"unggr"kp"htqpv"qh"Hnqtkfc"Ocnn Cpcn"Jc|kpi"c"Pgy"Vjkpi Oqo"Pcdu"Cnngigf"Ugz"Qhhgpfgt Uwrtgog"Eqwtv"Uvtkmgu"Fqyp"Mg{ Ugevkqp"qh"Xqvkpi"Tkijvu"CevIn a landmark ruling on Tuesday, the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, ruling it unconstitutional. The Supreme court ruled in a 5-4 decision that states covered by section 5 of the Voting Rights Act can be released from the requirement that all changes to voting laws and procedures get advance approval from the Justice Department or a panel of federal judges. The majority on the court took the opinion that when Congress reauthorized the act in 2006, it did not have a basis for re-adopting the antiquated formula. Those who challenged the Voting Rights Act preclearance guidelines said the measures were no longer needed and that Section 5 unfairly punished states that were covered under the provision by singling them out.Rcwnc"Fggp"Fworgf"D{"Jqog"Fgrqv"Cpf"Fkc/ dgvgu"Ftwi"Eqorcp{"Pqxq"Pqtfkum"Cu"Vctigv.

Lisa Jackson, a former manager at Deen's restaurants in Savannah, Georgia, is suing the celebrity chef and her brother, Earl "Bubba" Hiers (no we did not make that name up), for $1.2 million for sexual and racial harassment. So far, Jackson seems to have a pretty good case. A deposition from May has surfaced in which Deen admits not only to using the N-word, but also to making racist and anti-Semetic jokes. According to the transcript, when a lawyer asks her point blank if she has ever used the N-word herself, Deen doesn't miss a beat. "Yes, of course." She has since apologized.

About the Justice Coalition Founded in 1995, the Justice Coalition is a grass-roots organization seeking rights for victims in the criminal justice system. Founder Ted M. Hires, Sr. discovered when he and his staff were brutally victimized by armed robbers, the victims of crime had virtually no place in the process of dispensing justice. He created the Justice Coalition to help victims of violent crime throughout Northeast Florida. The Coalition keeps the public informed and involved through its monthly newspaper, Victims Advocate. The Coalition, its founder, and some of the members have won numerous local and national awards stemming from their activities in the area of community involvement. The FBI honored Ted Hires with the Directors Award for Community Leadership, bestowed by Director Louis Freeh, in 1997. Executive Director Ann Dugger received the same award in 2009.

again? Who? Terry Fields, Pat Lockett Felder, and down the road when things change we have others who want to fill political offices as professional politicians. Are we recycling or are we looking for results. Who is really best for the job and the community? Shall we go a little further? Recently there has been a lot of criticism of the Mayor of Jacksonville. Much of it is unwarranted, but it is a fact. Some of it is politically motivated and some of it is because the new Mayor did not allow those who were milking the city coffins of money over the years were cut off. Just check the budgets. The corruption in the city has been cleaned up. The budget in the city has been reduced. The out of control pension funds have been stopped and we have a government that is inclusive of everyone. Click, and hopefully we have a new City Council President that will not have the racial overtures that Mr. Bill Bishop did. Yes, I said it! He was not inclusive; he was stubborn and needs to get out of politics. In closing the Sheriff Office still has a long way to go when it comes to fairness and openness. The office still does not have independent investigations when police shootings occur. The office has shut out the media, close down the hearings on officers, and shut down police reports. Talking about bad perceptions and mistrust? Now maybe the new media gets it as well, Americans of African descent has complained for decades. Open and consistency produce trust. In the case of the Sheriff Office, we cannot find it. To further complicate the matter, the Sheriff Office and State Attorneys office are too friendly and too close. It does not leave room for proper accountability. They have had a free political ride long enough and needs to come under the eyes of the Justice Department sooner than later. Just an opinion, what is yours? Here are our ratings for now: Mayors Office B+; School Superintendent B+; Paul Wright Cat best; Constance Hall C; Sheriff C(Openness … F); Bill Bishop President City Council D(Bad Attitude); Reggie Brown C-; E. Denise Lee (On her way out); Warren Jones (On his way out); Dr. Johnnie Gaffney C-; (On his way out); and do you believe City Councilwoman Daniels wants to support the Confederacy occupying the old Army national Guard Building downtown, while we have a school named after Nathan Bedford Forrest … founder of the Ku Klux Klan who was a slave owner, women rapper, and murderer and truly a bad image for Jacksonville, and now she wants to say, she is supporting her constituency. Shall we stop by the State Representatives Offices; Mia Jones B; Reggie Fullwood C-; and let us not forget Senator Audrey Gibson C; and finally Congresswoman Corrine Brown, what do you think? A, B, C? Ask yourselves a question, when was the last time your political representatives conducted a consistent community meeting with you and ask you your opinion on something, or do you just trust their decision for you? Every one of our politicians need to meet more with the community and keep us more informed, and listen to our real needs. They work for us; we do not work for them. Once again, just an opinion, what is yours? These ratings are based on communication, visibility, legislative actions, informing the community and fulfilling promises. By the way, SCLC-C; NAACP-C! We can all do better! Do not get mad; let us get to work. We are all in this together. We must stop hiding behind the truths. We must face realities and fix our real problems. It could start by the City Council is they have not already accomplished this, developing a proclamation to apology for the oppressions of the past in this city and the racial motivations behind the Consolidated Government. Mr. Gulliford, are you up to the task? A note of caution for us all.

The rating was not as good as it could have been, but who did either one of you talk to before you made your decision. Did it dawn upon either of you that maybe the community does not agree with your decision? By the way, do not say we are not hearing or getting what you get to make your decision.

PAGE 4THE STARJUNE 29, 2013 Celebrating African-American Music Appreciation Month Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.Celebrating African-American Music Appreciation Month andƒ I like watching television competitions like Dancing with The Stars,Ž So You Think You Can Dance,Ž and The VoiceŽ (notice that American IdolŽ and Americas Got TalentŽ did not make the list. Waste of time, space, and continuum). A couple of years ago, the good list WOULD have included a unique acapella singing show on NBC called The Sing-Off. Unlike the doo-wop groups of the 50s and 60s that used blended harmonies to produce songs without musical instruments, these new age groups give great vocal harmonies combined with rhythmic and instrumental effects using their mouths to create the sounds of full orchestral accompaniment! Folks, nobody does it better than Traces of Blue the acapella group of ten members that competed on the third season of The Sing-Off in 2011. On the show they performed as Afro Blue, an award-winning jazz vocal ensemble created by Professor Connaitre Miller an associate professor and coordinator of jazz vocal studies at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Professor Miller formed the performance group from current and former members of her jazz vocal workshops and submitted an audition tape at the request of an NBC casting agent. Frankly, they had me at the mention of Howard University when they were introduced on the first show. When lead singer Christie Dashiell and the smooth as silk harmonies of her comrades bopped through a jazzy rendition of Corinne Bailey Rays Put Your Records On,Ž I was firmly committed to see them through to the end, because I expected them to win. Through ten nail-biting weeks Afro Blue gave incredible performance after incredible performance. It seemed unreal when they were eliminated in that tenth week. They were among the four remaining competitors and a win would have put them in the finals. For that show, they masterfully arranged a medley of I Believe I Can FlyŽ by R. Kelly and FlyŽ by Nicki Minaj. Each group had to also prepare a second song and Afro Blues was a brilliant rendition of Sam Cooks A Change Is Gonna ComeŽ (which Im listening to as we speak. OMG!). Afro Blue was invited to sing with special guest Smokey Robinson on the finale show. Their performance of Smokeys You Really Got a Hold on MeŽ was nothing short of amazing! In my opinion, the invitation and pairing was a mea culpa from the producers for the error in judgment by two judges who did not support Afro Blue as finalists. So there! In February the group, renamed Traces of Blue, came to Jacksonville to conduct a master class and to perform at the Ritz Theater and Museum. I arranged to talk with them in person about their time on the show and what it meant to them. They are still a group of ten, but weather caused travel delays for three of them. I chatted with Eliza Bekron, Trenton TrentŽ Cokley, Mariah Maxwell (the youngun of the group and vocal giant), John Kenniebrew, Christie Dashiell (a vocal enchantress, who sang lead on most of the arrangements), Integriti Reeves, and Devin Robinson Not present were Reginald ReggieŽ Bowens (the human percussionist), Danielle Withers (who sang and pranced to Whitneys I Wanna Dance With SomebodyŽ), and Brian Vickers. Surprisingly, most of them were unaware of the competition until Professor Miller approached them about producing an audition tape for the show. While they had appeared at the Kennedy Center and other prestigious venues in the D. C. area, the show put them on a national stage which did bring about jitters for some (but I can attest was not evident in their performances). Creating arrangements for vocal performances was familiar to them, but the added choreoŽ sessions to enhance stage performances were a new element. The hectic schedule was also something they had to adjust to. They would spend their days arranging and rehearsing the song(s) they or the judges chose and tape shows on Fridays. Additionally, all the contestants performed a medley of songs and choreography together at the top of each show. My cousins Barbara and Ronald Breaker attended TOBs performance at the Ritz and became instant fans. Barbara says she sat there amazed at how effortlessly the group transitioned through the songs with perfect notes and an energy that demonstrated their love for the art form. As a matter of fact, when TOB was asked about their next plans, Trent Cokley said they would individually pursue professions, i.e. teaching and audio engineering, but the group enjoys singing together, which caused Christie to exclaim, Gonna take this ride together.Ž Truer words were sung in an emotional interpretation of Lady Antebellums Need You NowŽ, brilliantly led by Trent and Christie, which left each member (and me) in tears afterwards. STOP THE PRESSES! Im watching YouTube video of their show at the Ritz! OMG! Keep on Pushing.Ž So, Reggie is more than just a human beat box! I am happy to be able to catch their performance here. But, lets not forget that the production of music is expensive and they cant get paid from free videos on the tube. We Must Support This Good Music. When asked what they want people to feel about their music the reply was, Loved, peace, and to be on the lips of everyone who loves music!Ž Be sure to visit their website, www.tracesofblue.com to learn how we can help them get their first Traces of Blue recording off the ground. You can also purchase their songs from The Sing-Off on iTunes (I hope they see some of that money).

Two Women Run Illegal Living Facilities for Elderly Two women were arrested for running an illegal business and taking advantage of the elderly. Police worked in conjunction with the Medicaid Fraud Unit of the Attorney Generals Office, Agency for Healthcare Administration and the Florida Department of Children and Family Services, to arrest Mary Alexander, 46, and Tara Tennille Collins-Johnson, 30. According to reports, they have been illegally operating assisted living facilities without a license and neglect of an elderly/disabled person. Several victims were interviewed and stated that as many as 12 people were living in a single family dwelling and in some instances, they were living in the garage section of the home. The food and medications in the homes were kept under lock and key with only the house manager having access. The manager would also provide transportation to appointments without the proper license. In some cases it was reported that the homes were infested with roaches and bed bugs and nothing was done about it. The housing conditions were reported to be horrible. Most of the residents were targeted because of their low income status. If the disabled person received $917 a month from Social Security, their check would be cashed and $35-$40 might be given back to them for spending money. The remainder went directly back to the Alexander and Johnson for payment to live there. The homes were previously inspected by the Agency for Healthcare Administration and a Cease and Desist Order was given for operating an assisted living facility without a license. However that order was ignored and the homes remained open. Both suspects have been arrested in the past for these same violations, but they continued to operate the facilities. Alexander and Johnson were both arrested and charged with two counts of unlicensed operation of an assisted living facility and one count of neglect of an elderly or disabled adult.

The caller tells the citizens to press certain keys and follow a set of directions. Once the citizen does what the caller asks, their computer is taken over.Ž This is one of the many dangers that your computer may come across. Remember these important tips for setting up a secure computer system and operating your home computer: Keep Your Firewall Turned On : A firewall helps protect your computer from hackers who might try to gain access to crash it, delete information, or even steal passwords or other sensitive information. Software firewalls are widely recommended for single computers. The software is prepackaged on some operating systems or can be purchased for individual computers. For multiple networked computers, hardware routers typically provide firewall protection. Install or Update Your Antivirus Software : Antivirus software is designed to prevent malicious software programs from embedding on your computer. If it detects malicious code, like a virus or a worm, it works to disarm or remove it. Viruses can infect computers without users' knowledge. Most types of antivirus software can be set up to update automatically. Install or Update Your Antispyware Technology : Spyware is just what it sounds like„software that is surreptitiously installed on your computer to let others peer into your activities on the computer. Some spyware collects information about you without your consent or produces unwanted pop-up ads on your web browser. Some operating systems offer free spyware protection, and inexpensive software is readily available for download on the Internet or at your local computer store. Be wary of ads on the Internet offering downloadable antispyware„in some cases these products may be fake and may actually contain spyware or other malicious code. It's like buying groceries„shop where you trust. Keep Your Operating System Up to Date: Computer operating systems are periodically updated to stay in tune with technology requirements and to fix security holes. Be sure to install the updates to ensure your computer has the latest protection. Be Careful What You Download : Carelessly downloading e-mail attachments can circumvent even the most vigilant anti-virus software. Never open an e-mail attachment from someone you don't know, and be wary of forwarded attachments from people you do know. They may have unwittingly advanced malicious code. Turn Off Your Computer : With the growth of high-speed Internet connections, many opt to leave their computers on and ready for action. The downside is that being "always on" renders computers more susceptible. Beyond firewall protection, which is designed to fend off unwanted attacks, turning the computer off effectively severs an attacker's connection„be it spyware or a botnet that employs your computer's resources to reach out to other unwitting users. Safety One of Two Suspects of Home Invasion Robbery Arrested At the time of the home invasion, the 15-year-old victim sent a text message to her parents and called 911. When the parents arrived home, the father gave chase to two suspects. One suspect reportedly fired a gun at the father. The mother gave chase to the third suspect. Each suspect was able to get away. Evidence and witness statements collected at the scene helped to identify Bingham as one of the three suspects. Anthony Alexander Bingham, 22 was arrested at 5 p.m. two days after the robbery. Detectives interviewed him about the armed home invasion robbery, which he denied. He said he knew the family of the home and that the father had given him $100 after he was released from jail the previous weekend. Bingham is suspected of joining two others in the act of breaking into the home, placing a gun to a teenagers head and committing robbery. Bingham was arrested and charged with home invasion robbery. He is being held without bond. Anthony Bingham Robber Crashes After Fleeing from Two Armed Robberies A man was arrested after fleeing from two armed robberies. At approximately 10:50 p.m., Allan Stinson, 20, confronted an employee as he was walking in the back door of a restaurant. Stinson brandished a firearm and grabbed the employee by the collar. He then attempted to force the victim into the business at gunpoint and a struggle ensued. The store manager heard the commotion and pulled the victim inside and both were able to escape out the front door. Stinson entered the restaurant wearing a mask and gloves but did not obtain any property. He then fled on foot. The next morning just before 7 a.m., Stinson went into a Steak n Shake restaurant and stole money from the cashier at gunpoint. Stinson fled on foot but was quickly spotted by police as he was getting into a 2001 Nissan Sentra nearby. Police were preparing to conduct a felony stop on Stinson's vehicle but Stinson began pointing a fully loaded .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun at them as he drove away. The officers backed off to a safe distance and began pursuing Stinson with assistance of an Aviation Unit. Police pursued Stinson in his vehicle for approximately 5-10 minutes until Stinson lost control and crashed. Stinson's vehicle left the roadway and rolled at least once landing in an upside down position. Stinson managed to crawl from the wreckage and run into a small pond next to the crash site. Responding officers quickly ran in behind Stinson and pulled him from the water. Stinson was arrested without further incident. During the recovery of the 2001 Nissan Sentra, cash and a loaded semi-automatic handgun believed to be used in the robbery and pointed at deputies was recovered. It is still unclear if Stinson fired any rounds at the deputies. There were no reported injuries in the robbery or the pursuit. There was no reported damage to any personal property other than the suspect's vehicle in the crash. Stinson was arrested and charged with three counts of armed robbery with a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, aggravated assault upon a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing to elude, no valid drivers license, four counts of obstructing or opposing an officer with violence, and battery on a law enforcement officer.

This performance earned Johnson a NCAA 2nd place ranking. Following her participation in the May 23rd long jump contest finishing 2nd in the final with a jump of 6.19 meters, she competed in the high jump event on May 26th, finishing her contest with an attempt at 1.70 meters mark, although her personal record in the high jump is 1.76 meters. Of course, in her new career as a professional athlete, she faces quite a few challenges, including the personal investment of time, as well as the financial support required. Johnson is set to depart from the United States on June 22, 2013 to compete on the European EAA and EAP circuit in quest of earning a professional spot representing the United States of America in the 100 and 200 meters sprint events and in the long jump event. Johnson, a May 2013 graduate of Paine College in Augusta, Georgia, earned a degree in Accounting. She hopes to transition into a professional career in athletics, as it is a long held dream. Her immediate plans are to focus entirely on training. Prior to going to the NCAA championships, during the SIAC championship which took place late April 2013, Johnson was the conference leader and champion in the long jump, high jump, and also NCAA qualifier in both events in the national championships. She was the recipient of the SIAC Field Athlete of the Year while competing at the 2013 SIAC championship in Atlanta, Georgia. Johnsons jump of 6.28 meters (207Ž) and an automatic qualifying mark placed her in the top 2 ranking in the NCAA Division II in the nation. Her high jump mark of 1.74 meters (58Ž) earned her a NCAA Div. II provisional qualifier. As an outcome, she earned a 2nd place finish All American at the NCAA Div. ll in Pueblo, Colorado with a second best mark of 6.19 meters in the long jump event. As an honor student, maintaining a 3.0 GPA or higher from 2011 to 2013, she hopes one day to pursue a career in business. Her immediate goals are focused on competing in the professional world of track and field athletics as she plans to travel to Europe at the end of June to compete in various countries in hope of improving her marks and times in the sprint events. As the second oldest in a family of ten children, she is proud to be the first in her siblings to graduate from college. Johnsons travel fees will amount to a total of $4,500. She will compete in Belgium, France, and Italy starting June 22, 2013. To assist Johnson with travel costs, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at Paine College at 706-821-8233 or lcollins@paine.edu.

Tallahassee, FL 32399-0333 (850)413-4241 ally.mathews@myfloridacfo.com LETTER TO THE EDITORBy Seven J It's the details that I don't want to allow mysel f to think about. As a father I can't imagine the confusion that was racing through he r little mind, wondering how someone she obviously trusted, someone she believed would help her coul d torture her in such a way. Like most of you I was in praye r when I heard about the dissappearance of little 8 year ol d Cherish Perriwinkle. And like many of you I went before the father and begged that he'd bring this beautiful innocent child home to her family who loves her, but that wasn't the case. According to police what we know is that Cherish an d her family were lured to an area Walmart by convicte d sex offender, 56 year old Donald Smith. Smith promise d the family much needed help, telling them he had a giftcard that he'd use to get them some necessary items. But that wasn't the case. Hours after Cherish left with Smith to get something to eat her body was found, dumped at an area church. He discarded her as if she was nothing. I was frozen when I heard the news. This was something that I prayed about. One of my friends online aske d how could God let this happen? Did God let this happen? Please understand the God we serve is mighty an d Sovereign. We will never understand why some prayers are anwered while others are not, but what we do know is that in his word He tells us in Isaiah 46:10 that He declares the end from the beginning, and his purpose an d pleasure will be accomplished. This can be very difficul t to digest with our human finite minds in such a tumultuous and heart breaking time. But, the comfort is in knowing God is not out of touch with our hurts or weaknesses. God The Father allowed the gruesome murdering of His Only Begotten Son so that He could justify guilty sinners such as you and I. Now is a time to band together in prayer for this family and plead with God for their salvation if they are lost. Pray that God's Peace comforts them and that He woul d be glorified even in such a tragic situation.
