Your mission of maritime security and your presence here in Jacksonville clearly promotes stability and confidence. While many of us are at work or at home playing with the kids or even asleep at night, you are out there creating safe passage for imports and exports.Ž The mayor has taken many steps to deepen the relationship of City Hall and the military and veterans community. The military represents an annual economic impact of nearly $12 billion in Jacksonville and an average of 10,000 new veterans establish residence in the city every year. U.S. 4th Fleet was a major U.S. Navy command in the South Atlantic Ocean during World War II. It was originally established in 1943 to protect the U.S. against raiders, blockade runners and enemy submarines. In 1950, U.S. 4th Fleet was disestablished when responsibilities were taken over by U.S. 2nd Fleet. In 2008, then Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Gary Roughead announced the reestablishment of U.S. 4th Fleet.

One theory is that the woman was killed in one location and dumped at the site. Anyone who has any information about the killing is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000 contact Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS. It is said that the slain woman had been arrested several times cocaine, burglary, forgery and battery but had been trying to get herself in order. Due to difficulties with funeral expenses, a VyStar account has been set up for Keisha Murray to help with funeral expenses. The account number is 7504270258. Orlando police are reportedly preparing for possible riots in the event that George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing teen Trayvon Martin in cold bloodŽ is found not guilty. Recently, The Broward County Sheriffs Office released two public service announcements urging people to raise their voice, not their handsŽ if they are unhappy with the verdict.

According to Annie Smith, chief of investigations for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, investigators are also to determine if Pickens played a role in a fatal robbery and shooting at Mojo no.4 Urban BBQ Whiskey Bar around the same time. Smith said offucers are still processing evidence from that scene. Reports state that Robert Sutton, 54, was shot and killed at Mojo while doing cleaning work with another man. Shortly thereafter, it is alleged that Pickens robbed a nearby CVS and shot an employee, whose head was grazed by a bullet. That employee has since been released from a hospital. When arrested, Pickens had a Smith & Wesson 9mm handgun loaded with 11 rounds when he was shot twice by an undercover SWAT officer. Smith confirmed that the gun will be tested for ballistics in relation to the Mojo killing. Hctogtu"Octmgv Eqokpi"vq Nqppkg"Oknngt"Rctm Ugg"Rcig"9

AS NEW RADIO SMASH MORE OF YOUŽ CLIMBS THE CHARTSGospel Musics Leading Man, Earnest Pugh, best known for his classic hits Rain On UsŽ and I Need Your Glory,Ž has added a new milestone to his long list of achievements as he continues his year long 20/15 Celebration (20 Years in ministry and 15 years in the music industry). Recently, the dynamic vocalist was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree in Christian Counseling from the Institute for Teaching God's Word (ITGW) in Rockdale, TX for his 20 years of dedicated service in ministry, the music industry and the community at large. This honorific comes as Pugh is promoting his new radio single More of YouŽ that has landed in the Top 40 after a week in release. The song hails from Pughs forthcoming The W.I.N. (Worship In Nassau) ExperienceŽ CD that releases on P Man Records on August 27, 2013. Recorded live in Nassau, Bahamas in the Grand Ballroom of the Atlantis Hotel, the album commemorates Pughs 20-15 Celebration. The CD/DVD project features cameos by gospel icon Shirley Caesar, Rance Allen, LeJuene Thompson and Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis. Most Pugh fans are likely unaware that hes been quietly doing course work to earn a Ph.D. in Christian Counseling from ITGW and expects to graduate in 2014. The smooth singer, who has a B.A. from the school and a Masters of Divinity degree from Howard University, was motivated to further his education after a conversation with his daughter. "When my daughter got into high school and had difficulty identifying a career field that fulfilled her I felt frustrated and convicted because I was a public success as an artist but private failure as a parent,Ž Pugh recalls. I was determined to master the art of listening and providing counsel to my daughter and worked hard at becoming as effective outside of the pulpit as I was inside of it." Pughs passion for counseling was also nurtured at Washington, D.C.s Howard University Hospital where he trained as a chaplain in the cancer ward while working on his masters degree. I wanted to reach out to hurting people and address issues that are never addressed in a church setting,Ž he explains. "Ive mastered the art of listening and feel that effective counseling will ultimately push people on the road to destiny and purpose.

We also believe the culture of racial profilingŽ in America has contributed to the shooting death of Mr. Martin. 1.This is about an African American male being profile by Mr. Zimmerman while exercising his legal rights. 2.This trial is also about stand your ground law that if it had not been in place, we probably would not be here today. 3.This trial is about an innocent young man who had a constitutional right to be where he was and doing what he was doing without expecting to be profiled, challenged, approached or threaten for walking down the streets or on a sidewalk. 4.This trial is about a man who took matters in his own hands and determine d that he, not the neighbors, not the police department but he (Mr. Zimmerman was going to be judge, jury and executioner and Trayvon Martin is dead.) 5.We believe it was a racial and cultural profiling nothing more and nothing less. Ask the 650k in New York City annually. 6.We believe that if Mr. Zimmerman had not taken matters into his own hands, Mr. Martin would not be dead. 7.We believe that if Mr. Zimmerman had followed the advice of the Officer o f law and not followed Trayvon or approached Trayvon, Trayvon would be alive. 8.We believe racial profiling in America is also on trial. Profiling people because of their culture, nationality, and race is an issue that must stop across America. This case is one of many stories that are untold, thousands are profiled across America daily, and it must stop. Young blacks, browns and parents are tired of this and the impacts it has on their lives. The culture of racial profiling is on trial in America an d legislative bodies at local, state and national level should intervene and stop it now. We would like to say, no matter what the outcome of this trail maybe, we have two families that have suffered and will continue to suffer the remainder of their lives. POC: R. L.

PAGE 4THE STARJULY 13, 2013 Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome .HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU If its July 4thwe must be celebrating the birth of the nation or the birth of Volume Burks and Joann Bryant! We did get to sing happy birthday and eat cake in honor of Volume at the Atlantic Beach home of Donnalea and Tom Goelz, who had just finished renovations on their pool and outdoor hot tub overlooking the Atlantic. And so, at a party meant to celebrate the United States, complete with the beachs official fireworks and those of nearby neighbors, we sang to Volume the traditional birthday song and OdundeŽ, the tune by the late Nigerian master drummer Babatunde Olatunji, which we have adopted as a birthday song. On the weekend we had a blast at the Pleasant Grove home of Don and Pat Portis who held a fish fry for Dons cousin, Joann Bryant who is also a childhood friend of Ok Sun Burks. No self-respecting fish fry would be complete without crabs and the 4thof July is a bust without barbecue. So, there were crabs, barbecue ribs and chicken, potato salad, slaw, baked beans, green beans, and cake galore. Everything was finger lickin good! Don and Pat have almost completed the family home that Don is building on their several acres outside of Stark, Florida, and it will be quite a show piece when it is done! Among the many family and friends who joined Don and Pat to celebrate Joann were: Joanns hubby, Joe Bryant ; her mom and aunt, Bobbie Jean Clark and Lillie Pearl Portis ; daughters and sons-in-law Iris and Al Sanon and Samyra and Demetrius Boney ; granddaughter Melena Boney ; cousins Billy Ray Portis and wife Maurice Portis and Herbert Tyson, Jr. ; and Ok Sun and Volume .HAPPY BIRTHDAY VOLUME AND JOANN AND MANY MORE!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SPEAKING OF BIRTHDAYS July 1 marked Pine Castles 60th year as providers of support and employment opportunities to people with developmental and acquired disabilities. Beth Meyer, Director of Disabled Services for the City of Jacksonville, brought greetings from Mayor Alvin Brown along with a proclamation naming July 1st Pine Castle Day.Ž Alma Perchy recounted the early days of Pine Castle when her parents enrolled her brother, Bill Bishop as one of the first students at age four in 1958. He has rarely missed a day since, becoming a dedicated and highly skilled Pine Castle employee! Everyone calls him M r. Pine CastleŽ and he has a name tag like the ones worn by the staff. After meeting Bill, I think they should declare him the Mayor of Pine Ca stle! Jon May Executive Director of Pine Castle, presented a plaque to Bill for 58 years of personal achievement as a student, employee and true friend to all at the facility. Pine Castle began as a school in the early 1950s, at a time when children with severe disabilities were kept at home or institu tionalized. By 1965, with public schools developing programs for special needs children, Pine Castle turned its focus on serving those who, af ter graduating, would need to learn practical skills to sustain daily life. Today Pine Castle operates with a staff of more than 100, and programs that provide onsite work and training for nearly 400 par ticipants, as well as five group homes located on and off campus. Attendees included : Senator Aaron Bean, Gayle Granger Regional Manager of Floridas Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD Area 4), and Jacksonville City Council Member, Don Redman. For more information visit Pine Castles website at www.pinecastle.org ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WE BID FAREWELL TOMary Barnett Mitchell, Ph.D who passed away peacefully on June 27, 2013. Dr. Mitchell was a lifelong member of Historic Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church, a retired educator, and an inspiration to many. Tamer Britton one of Marys former students, reflected about how she was influenced by her friend and mentor to become a Home Economics teacher in the Duval County Public Schools, and, like her mentor, became known as Jack the RipperŽ because she made students rip out seams that did not meet the highest standards of tailoring. Ironically, before the funeral began, Charlene Taylor Hill related a similar story to me as she reminisced about being a home ecŽ student of Marys at New Stanton Senior High School. Mary will be missed by many, but most of all her husband Sollie Mitchell ; niece, Dr. Alva Barnett ; nephews, Maurice H. Barnett, Jr. (Carolyn) Charles T. Barnett (Mary) ; devoted cousin, Cynthia Gloster ; and Irvylyn and Charlie Kennebrew ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT a year has gone by since we mourned the passing of our dear Betty Asque Davis retired columnist of Lifestyle: Socially Speaking in The Florida Star, friend, and mentor. She touched the lives of many in her professional and personal life. She is missed by all her knew her but, we know there isnt anyone who could miss her more than her family, including Mrs. Inez Asque, Carl, Mikki, Jimmy, and Lorn. We honor the memory of this grand lady.

Family Use 9-Year-Old to Steal Purse at Chuck-E-Cheese Two women were caught using a younger family member to steal a purse at Chuck-E-Cheese. At approximately 8:25 p.m., two suspects, Jasmine Daneishamonique Johnson, 27, and Chantel Ciarra Jenkins, 24, walked into a Chuck-ECheese restaurant to attend a birthday party. While at the party, the suspects were captured on surveillance video looking to an area of where a woman set a purse on the counter. The video showed Johnson directing her 9-year-old nephew to retrieve the purse. The child reached behind the victim and grabbed the purse off the counter. The child then ran into the seating area, where he placed the purse on the table where Johnson and Jenkins were sitting. Both suspects were then seen leaving Chuck-E-Cheese with Jenkins carrying the purse. During the investigation, detectives determined the 9-year old had no knowledge the purse belonged to someone else and was directed by his Aunt Johnson to steal the purse. The same evening, the victim's credit cards were fraudulently used at a local convenience store. Suspects both are charged with 3rddegree grand theft, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and fraudulent possession of personal information. Man Fills out JobApplication Then Robs Store At approximately 9:48 a.m., officers responded to a gas station in reference to a report of a robbery that had just occurred. Officers were informed that the suspect was a known, regular customer, who he usually bought cigarettes, had just filled out an employment application before committing the crime. The store had the application still, on which the suspect had written his name. The clerk from the store advised that Anthony Dwayne Thomas, 33, had been standing at the counter filling out an application for employment. While there, Thomas reached across the counter into the clerks area, opened a drawer, and took cash when the employee wasnt looking. Thomas then fled the scene. Officers began to search the area for Thomas. Members of the Special Deployment Unit located Thomas just blocks away from the store. Thomas immediately resisted the officer who approached him to take him into custody and then ran. After a short pursuit, Thomas was captured with the help of other officers. Thomas was positively identified as the thief and he was found to have the cash taken in the pocket of his shorts. A total of $130 was found. After he was arrested, Thomas told police he did not rob the store. No one was injured as a result of this incident. Thomas was arrested and charged with burglary, retail petit theft, and resisting arrest with violence.

LOCAL JULY 13, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market at Lonnie C. Miller ParkJune 30 2013Photos by Frank M. Powell III What is the Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market? The concept of the Northside Love Arts & Farmers Market is a basic one. It is the vision for the event to provide a neighborho od marketplace that provides fresh food options, showcases local businesses, nonprofits, artists, entertainers and educational and health programming that is beneficial for both the comm unity resident (consumer) and the service provider and/or business owner. How did the idea of LOVE come about? The LOVEŽ in Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market stands for Lifting Our Various Enterprises. This acronym was coined by Arne tt Green, a northside community stakeholder and retired businessman. The vision for the event was developed when two active community members, (a business owner, Leandrew Mil ls, III and a community activist, Angie Nixon) were discussing the need of more support for entrepreneurs and small business owners within the community, as well as more healthy f ood choices and information on healthy lifestyle choices. Small businesses are the lifeline of the community and without them, the areas often become blighted. This was the case for th e Kings Road/Soutel Drive Corridor. It is the goal that the event will lead to improving and enhancing the quality of life for residents, by providing them with the services and products that they need and are beneficial to them, as well as promoting growth and exposure for businesses and organizations within the Jacksonville community that will provide the residents with tho se products. Why do it? The African-American population has a buying power of nearly $1 trillion. Northwest Jacksonville is comprised of a majority Afr ican-American population, however this demographic, more specifically those located within the Kings Road/Soutel Drive Corridor (suffer from stagnant economic development, a lack of resources and amenities (ie; positive family-friendly entertainment, diverse fitness initiatives/programs and nutritious food options, etc.), an above average crime rate and dispro portionate health issues within their community. The Northside LOVE Market will allow businesses and organizations to market their products and services to a demographic that i s known for high consumerism. The event will also seek to provide the community with entertainment, nutrition and health education, as well as offer resources and amenities, not easi ly accessible in their neighborhoods Who is the LOVE Market for? Community residents in Northwest Jacksonville (Health Zone 1), as well as small business owners and organizations looking to pr omote their products and services. When& where will the LOVE Market be held? The Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market will be held the last Sunday of each month from June-November, 2013. The event will b e held at Lonnie C. Miller Park, located on Soutel Drive, near the Sherwood Forest and Harborview neighborhoods in Jacksonville City Council District 10.

Snyder All through my life, I have been awkward when talking to someone of the opposite gender. I had thought by the time I got to this stage of life, post-young, I would have left a lot of this behind. I was doing fine until I heard a news report giving information that the word freshmanŽ was no longer a politically correct word to use when speaking of college students. They are now referred to as First-Year Students.Ž According to this report, the word freshman is offensive to women. I brought this to the attention of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage to see if maybe she could shed a little bit of light on the situation. Unfortunately, she was as much in the dark about this as I was. I sat down with my wife and we began to figure out how that I, a very sensitive and politically correct person, could address somebody of the opposite gender. I guess I can still call them women,Ž I said with a degree of certainty in my voice. My wife looked at me and slowly shook her head. Im afraid that the word women, is offensive to some of these politically correct individuals because the word ends in men, which is a masculine gender. It also applies with the word woman.Ž So,Ž I said rather thoughtfully rubbing my chin, I will have to begin calling those individuals females.Ž I smiled and thought I had come up with a solution. I looked at my wife to get her approval. Shaking her head, she said, That word is not acceptable anymore, either. If you look at the word, you will find that it ends in the word male, and as you know that is masculine.Ž Well,Ž I said in a little bit of desperation, I guess Ill just have to call them lady.Ž Not so fast,Ž she said looking at me. How do you spell lady? The first three letters spell the word lad, and everybody knows a lad is a boy.Ž I finally came up with the word I thought would solve all my political correctness dilemma. And I threw it at her. I will just call them a person.Ž I was proud of my accomplishment. Buster,Ž she said, you still dont get it, do you? The word person ends with the word son and everybody knows a son is a male child.Ž I cannot call them women or woman or female or lady or person because somewhere in those words someone sees something masculine. I know what Ill do,Ž I said to my wife with a smile dancing across my face, whenever I see someone of the opposite gender I will shout out loud and clear Hey, you.Ž I think youre getting worse as you go along here,Ž she said. You do know what the word hey begins with?Ž I thought for a moment, sadly shaking my head, I looked at her and said, He?Ž I will never arrive at any degree of political correctness, at least during my lifetime. And, I will never understand any one of the opposite gender, whatever you call them. I do take a little consolation in Gods Word. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against theeŽ (Psalm 119:11 KJV). I do not have to be politically correct when I come to God because His Word is final. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

When you think about our role as a port city, the 4th Fleets work is absolutely crucial to our economic health and our role in the global supply chain, the mayor said. There is a lot of opportunity as our economies partner to move goods all over the world. Your mission of maritime security and your presence here in Jacksonville clearly promotes stability and confidence. While many of us are at work or at home playing with the kids or even asleep at night, you are out there creating safe passage for imports and exports. The mayor has taken many steps to deepen the relationship of City Hall and the military and veterans community. The military represents an annual economic impact of nearly $12 billion in Jacksonville and an average of 10,000 new veterans establish residence in the city every year. U.S. 4th Fleet was a major U.S. Navy command in the South Atlantic Ocean during World War II. It was originally established in 1943 to protect the U.S. against raiders, blockade runners and enemy submarines. In 1950, U.S. 4th Fleet was disestablished when responsibilities were taken over by U.S. 2nd Fleet. In 2008, then Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Gary Roughead announced the reestablishment of U.S. 4th Fleet.

According to Annie Smith, chief of investigations for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, investigators are also to determine if Pickens played a role in a fatal robbery and shooting at Mojo no.4 Urban BBQ Whiskey Bar around the same time. Smith said offucers are still processing evidence from that scene. Reports state that Robert Sutton, 54, was shot and killed at Mojo while doing cleaning work with another man. Shortly thereafter, it is alleged that Pickens robbed a nearby CVS and shot an employee, whose head was grazed by a bullet. That employee has since been released from a hospital. When arrested, Pickens had a Smith & Wesson 9mm handgun loaded with 11 rounds when he was shot twice by an undercover SWAT officer. Smith confirmed that the gun will be tested for ballistics in relation to the Mojo killing. Hctogtu"Octmgv Eqokpi"vq Nqppkg"Oknngt"Rctm Ugg"Rcig"9

AS NEW RADIO SMASH MORE OF YOU CLIMBS THE CHARTSGospel Musics Leading Man, Earnest Pugh, best known for his classic hits Rain On Us and I Need Your Glory, has added a new milestone to his long list of achievements as he continues his year long 20/15 Celebration (20 Years in ministry and 15 years in the music industry). Recently, the dynamic vocalist was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree in Christian Counseling from the Institute for Teaching God's Word (ITGW) in Rockdale, TX for his 20 years of dedicated service in ministry, the music industry and the community at large. This honorific comes as Pugh is promoting his new radio single More of You that has landed in the Top 40 after a week in release. The song hails from Pughs forthcoming The W.I.N. (Worship In Nassau) Experience CD that releases on P Man Records on August 27, 2013. Recorded live in Nassau, Bahamas in the Grand Ballroom of the Atlantis Hotel, the album commemorates Pughs 20-15 Celebration. The CD/DVD project features cameos by gospel icon Shirley Caesar, Rance Allen, LeJuene Thompson and Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis. Most Pugh fans are likely unaware that hes been quietly doing course work to earn a Ph.D. in Christian Counseling from ITGW and expects to graduate in 2014. The smooth singer, who has a B.A. from the school and a Masters of Divinity degree from Howard University, was motivated to further his education after a conversation with his daughter. "When my daughter got into high school and had difficulty identifying a career field that fulfilled her I felt frustrated and convicted because I was a public success as an artist but private failure as a parent, Pugh recalls. I was determined to master the art of listening and providing counsel to my daughter and worked hard at becoming as effective outside of the pulpit as I was inside of it." Pughs passion for counseling was also nurtured at Washington, D.C.s Howard University Hospital where he trained as a chaplain in the cancer ward while working on his masters degree. I wanted to reach out to hurting people and address issues that are never addressed in a church setting, he explains. "Ive mastered the art of listening and feel that effective counseling will ultimately push people on the road to destiny and purpose.

We also believe the culture of racial profiling in America has contributed to the shooting death of Mr. Martin. 1.This is about an African American male being profile by Mr. Zimmerman while exercising his legal rights. 2.This trial is also about stand your ground law that if it had not been in place, we probably would not be here today. 3.This trial is about an innocent young man who had a constitutional right to be where he was and doing what he was doing without expecting to be profiled, challenged, approached or threaten for walking down the streets or on a sidewalk. 4.This trial is about a man who took matters in his own hands and determine d that he, not the neighbors, not the police department but he (Mr. Zimmerman was going to be judge, jury and executioner and Trayvon Martin is dead.) 5.We believe it was a racial and cultural profiling nothing more and nothing less. Ask the 650k in New York City annually. 6.We believe that if Mr. Zimmerman had not taken matters into his own hands, Mr. Martin would not be dead. 7.We believe that if Mr. Zimmerman had followed the advice of the Officer o f law and not followed Trayvon or approached Trayvon, Trayvon would be alive. 8.We believe racial profiling in America is also on trial. Profiling people because of their culture, nationality, and race is an issue that must stop across America. This case is one of many stories that are untold, thousands are profiled across America daily, and it must stop. Young blacks, browns and parents are tired of this and the impacts it has on their lives. The culture of racial profiling is on trial in America an d legislative bodies at local, state and national level should intervene and stop it now. We would like to say, no matter what the outcome of this trail maybe, we have two families that have suffered and will continue to suffer the remainder of their lives. POC: R. L.

PAGE 4 THE STAR JULY 13, 2013 Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU If its July 4thwe must be celebrating the birth of the nation or the birth of Volume Burks and Joann Bryant! We did get to sing happy birthday and eat cake in honor of Volume at the Atlantic Beach home of Donnalea and Tom Goelz, who had just finished renovations on their pool and outdoor hot tub overlooking the Atlantic. And so, at a party meant to celebrate the United States, complete with the beachs official fireworks and those of nearby neighbors, we sang to Volume the traditional birthday song and Odunde, the tune by the late Nigerian master drummer Babatunde Olatunji, which we have adopted as a birthday song. On the weekend we had a blast at the Pleasant Grove home of Don and Pat Portis, who held a fish fry for Dons cousin, Joann Bryant, who is also a childhood friend of Ok Sun Burks. No self-respecting fish fry would be complete without crabs and the 4thof July is a bust without barbecue. So, there were crabs, barbecue ribs and chicken, potato salad, slaw, baked beans, green beans, and cake galore. Everything was finger lickin good! Don and Pat have almost completed the family home that Don is building on their several acres outside of Stark, Florida, and it will be quite a show piece when it is done! Among the many family and friends who joined Don and Pat to celebrate Joann were: Joanns hubby, Joe Bryant; her mom and aunt, Bobbie Jean Clark and Lillie Pearl Portis ; daughters and sons-in-law Iris and Al Sanon and Samyra and Demetrius Boney; granddaughter Melena Boney; cousins Billy Ray Portis and wife Maurice Portis and Herbert Tyson, Jr. ; and Ok Sun and Volume .HAPPY BIRTHDAY VOLUME AND JOANN AND MANY MORE!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SPEAKING OF BIRTHDAYS July 1 marked Pine Castles 60th year as providers of support and employment opportunities to people with developmental and acquired disabilities. Beth Meyer, Director of Disabled Services for the City of Jacksonville, brought greetings from Mayor Alvin Brown, along with a proclamation naming July 1st Pine Castle Day. Alma Perchy recounted the early days of Pine Castle when her parents enrolled her brother, Bill Bishop, as one of the first students at age four in 1958. He has rarely missed a day since, becoming a dedicated and highly skilled Pine Castle employee! Everyone calls him M r. Pine Castle and he has a name tag like the ones worn by the staff. After meeting Bill, I think they should declare him the Mayor of Pine Castle! Jon May, Executive Director of Pine Castle, presented a plaque to Bill for 58 years of personal achievement as a student, employee and true friend to all at the facility. Pine Castle began 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. Today Pine Castle operates with a staff of more than 100, and programs that provide onsite work and training for nearly 400 participants, as well as five group homes located on and off campus. Attendees included : Senator Aaron Bean, Gayle Granger Regional Manager of Floridas Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD Area 4), and Jacksonville City Council Member, Don Redman. For more information visit Pine Castles website at www.pinecastle.org ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WE BID FAREWELL TOMary Barnett Mitchell, Ph.D. who passed away peacefully on June 27, 2013. Dr. Mitchell was a lifelong member of Historic Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church, a retired educator, and an inspiration to many. Tamer Britton one of Marys former students, reflected about how she was influenced by her friend and mentor to become a Home Economics teacher in the Duval County Public Schools, and, like her mentor, became known as Jack the Ripper because she made students rip out seams that did not meet the highest standards of tailoring. Ironically, before the funeral began, Charlene Taylor Hill related a similar story to me as she reminisced about being a home ec student of Marys at New Stanton Senior High School. Mary will be missed by many, but most of all her husband Sollie Mitchell ; niece, Dr. Alva Barnett; nephews, Maurice H. Barnett, Jr. (Carolyn) Charles T. Barnett (Mary); devoted cousin, Cynthia Gloster; and Irvylyn and Charlie Kennebrew. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT a year has gone by since we mourned the passing of our dear Betty Asque Davis, retired columnist of Lifestyle: Socially Speaking in The Florida Star, friend, and mentor. She touched the lives of many in her professional and personal life. She is missed by all her knew her but, we know there isnt anyone who could miss her more than her family, including Mrs. Inez Asque, Carl, Mikki, Jimmy, and Lorn. We honor the memory of this grand lady.

Family Use 9-Year-Old to Steal Purse at Chuck-E-Cheese Two women were caught using a younger family member to steal a purse at Chuck-E-Cheese. At approximately 8:25 p.m., two suspects, Jasmine Daneishamonique Johnson, 27, and Chantel Ciarra Jenkins, 24, walked into a Chuck-ECheese restaurant to attend a birthday party. While at the party, the suspects were captured on surveillance video looking to an area of where a woman set a purse on the counter. The video showed Johnson directing her 9-year-old nephew to retrieve the purse. The child reached behind the victim and grabbed the purse off the counter. The child then ran into the seating area, where he placed the purse on the table where Johnson and Jenkins were sitting. Both suspects were then seen leaving Chuck-E-Cheese with Jenkins carrying the purse. During the investigation, detectives determined the 9-year old had no knowledge the purse belonged to someone else and was directed by his Aunt Johnson to steal the purse. The same evening, the victim's credit cards were fraudulently used at a local convenience store. Suspects both are charged with 3rddegree grand theft, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and fraudulent possession of personal information. Man Fills out JobApplication Then Robs Store At approximately 9:48 a.m., officers responded to a gas station in reference to a report of a robbery that had just occurred. Officers were informed that the suspect was a known, regular customer, who he usually bought cigarettes, had just filled out an employment application before committing the crime. The store had the application still, on which the suspect had written his name. The clerk from the store advised that Anthony Dwayne Thomas, 33, had been standing at the counter filling out an application for employment. While there, Thomas reached across the counter into the clerks area, opened a drawer, and took cash when the employee wasnt looking. Thomas then fled the scene. Officers began to search the area for Thomas. Members of the Special Deployment Unit located Thomas just blocks away from the store. Thomas immediately resisted the officer who approached him to take him into custody and then ran. After a short pursuit, Thomas was captured with the help of other officers. Thomas was positively identified as the thief and he was found to have the cash taken in the pocket of his shorts. A total of $130 was found. After he was arrested, Thomas told police he did not rob the store. No one was injured as a result of this incident. Thomas was arrested and charged with burglary, retail petit theft, and resisting arrest with violence.

If an attorney makes suggestions of what you dont clearly remember, do not agree with their estimates unless it is matches up with your mental estimates. Instead of memorizing what you want to say, be yourself and speak in your own words. But do think before you speak. If you make mistakes, immediately correct them. Dress properly. Do not dress too casual or too dressy. Do not discuss the case at all with anyone outside of the court. Be responsible while you are in court. Be serious and avoid laughing or take things in a joking manner. Tell the truth.This is the most important of all. Do not try to make false statements to hurt or help anybody. Do not exaggerate from how you remember it. Answer questions to the best of your memory just as they were. Listen carefully to avoid confusion. Safety Man Steals Bicycle from Child Luther Douglas, 49, with robbery by sudden snatching after two juveniles say he stole a bike from them at the Skate Park at Payne Park. Officers responded to a skate park in reference to a report of a robbery at approximately 11 p.m. Two juvenile victims said that Douglas threatened to shoot them while one of the victims was sitting on a bike.Douglas then fled away on the bicycle. Douglas ex-wife was at the park as well and told officers she witnessed the robbery. She then became uncooperative and started to yell threats at other juveniles. Officers told her to leave, which she did, after screaming at them. After Douglas ex-wife told the direction Douglas left, officers found Douglas riding around on the victims bike shortly. He was then arrested. Douglas was charged with robbery by sudden snatching, a felony. He is being held on $5,000 bail.

His two friends immediately rendered first aid to him until EMS arrived. The female that was rendering aid to him had to lay her iPhone on the ground while she was treating her friend. Once EMS arrived, she realized that her phone was missing. She gave officers a description of two men that she observed in the area while she was rendering medical aid. The other friend said he remembered one of two men had asked if everything was okay. Officers stopped them and suspected that Shaquille Kevon Simmons, 19, was the one that stole the victim's iPhone.

Once officers reclaimed the phone, Simmons admitted to stealing the phone and began shouting racial slurs towards the officers. Simmons was then arrested. Simmons was charged with grand theft, a third-degree felony. He is being held on $5,000 bond. Shaquille Simmons

LOCAL JULY 13, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market at Lonnie C. Miller ParkJune 30 2013Photos by Frank M. Powell III What is the Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market? The concept of the Northside Love Arts & Farmers Market is a basic one. It is the vision for the event to provide a neighborhood marketplace that provides fresh food options, showcases local businesses, nonprofits, artists, entertainers and educational and health programming that is beneficial for both the community resident (consumer) and the service provider and/or business owner. How did the idea of LOVE come about? The LOVE in Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market stands for Lifting Our Various Enterprises. This acronym was coined by Arnett Green, a northside community stakeholder and retired businessman. The vision for the event was developed when two active community members, (a business owner, Leandrew Mills, III and a community activist, Angie Nixon) were discussing the need of more support for entrepreneurs and small business owners within the community, as well as more healthy food choices and information on healthy lifestyle choices. Small businesses are the lifeline of the community and without them, the areas often become blighted. This was the case for the Kings Road/Soutel Drive Corridor. It is the goal that the event will lead to improving and enhancing the quality of life for residents, by providing them with the services and products that they need and are beneficial to them, as well as promoting growth and exposure for businesses and organizations within the Jacksonville community that will provide the residents with those products. Why do it? The African-American population has a buying power of nearly $1 trillion. Northwest Jacksonville is comprised of a majority African-American population, however this demographic, more specifically those located within the Kings Road/Soutel Drive Corridor (suffer from stagnant economic development, a lack of resources and amenities (ie; positive family-friendly entertainment, diverse fitness initiatives/programs and nutritious food options, etc.), an above average crime rate and disproportionate health issues within their community. The Northside LOVE Market will allow businesses and organizations to market their products and services to a demographic that is known for high consumerism. The event will also seek to provide the community with entertainment, nutrition and health education, as well as offer resources and amenities, not easily accessible in their neighborhoods Who is the LOVE Market for? Community residents in Northwest Jacksonville (Health Zone 1), as well as small business owners and organizations looking to promote their products and services. When& where will the LOVE Market be held? The Northside LOVE Arts & Farmers Market will be held the last Sunday of each month from June-November, 2013. The event will be held at Lonnie C. Miller Park, located on Soutel Drive, near the Sherwood Forest and Harborview neighborhoods in Jacksonville City Council District 10.

Two students at Florida A&M University (FAMU), Teayair Harrison and Jamie Johnson, have each been awarded Harris Corporation Endowed Scholarships for the upcoming 2013-2014 academic year. Both will receive $10,000 to continue their studies at the university. For more than 20 years, the Harris Corporation has partnered with FAMU to support education programs that help produce a state workforce proficient in science, technology, engineering and math. Harrison is a sophomore mechanical engineering student from Jacksonville, Fla. with a 3.5 grade point average. She was ecstatic when the university called with the news that she was selected. This scholarship will help me realize my ultimate goal to become an aerospace engineer, Harrison said. After I graduate with my bachelors degree I plan to attend graduate school to study aerospace engineering. Johnson, a graduate student from Miami, Fla., is studying computer information systems with a 3.3 GPA. He credits receiving this award and his future success to demonstrating five qualities. In order to achieve success, a person must maintain integrity, respect for others, leadership, good verbal and writing communication skills and a commitment to completing daily tasks, Johnson said. I am grateful that the Harris Corporation believed that I represented these qualities with enough excellence to receive this award. After graduation, Johnson plans to acquire a leadership role in the information technology industry. The Harris Corporation is pleased to award these scholarships to two deserving students that are excited about continuing their education in the fields of mechanical engineering and computer science, said Jim Clamons, vice president of engineering operations at Harris Government Communications Systems division. The nation needs more students to excel and graduate in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education. Ms. Harrison and Mr. Johnson show great ambitions to excel in this area. Applicants for the Harris Corporation Endowed Scholarship must be at least a college sophomore with a minimum 3.0 GPA and currently majoring in computer information systems, computer science, electrical, mechanical, computer and biomedical/informatics engineering For complete application instructions and more information call the Office of University Advancement at (850) 599-3095.

JULY 13, 2013 THESTAR PAGEThe Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2013 fifthround draft pick Denard Robinson to a contract, the club announced today. Robinson, listed as an offensive weapon on the clubs roster, became the sixth of eight Jaguars draft picks in 2013 to sign a contract. All players under contract are scheduled to report to training camp on Thursday, July 25 with the first practice scheduled the following day. As I said before, we expect to have all eight draft picks under contract prior to the beginning of training camp, Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said. We are excited to get Denard under contract. He had a very productive offseason for us and will continue to get better with each practice. Hes passionate about football and has been a very good team player. Its a great feeling to sign my first NFL contract, Robinson said. Its something Ive been waiting my whole life for and Im ready to get to camp later this month and get back to work. I was able to get a feel for the NFL game during the offseason and I look forward to getting the pads on and just keep improving with each practice. Robinson, 6-0, 197, was a four-year letterman at Michigan where he played in 49 games with 37 starts (35 at quarterback, 2 at running back). He finished his career with the most rushing yards by a quarterback in NCAA history with 4,495 including a single-season record 1,702 rushing yards in 2010. He is only the fourth player in NCAA history to throw for 2,000-plus yards and rush for 1,000-plus yards in a season and he accomplished the feat twice (2010, 2011). As a senior, Robinson rushed for 1,266 yards and seven touchdowns while completing 89 of 166 passes for 1,319 yards and nine touchdowns. He earned second-team All-Big Ten honors as a junior as he started all 13 games and led his team to a victory in the Sugar Bowl. Robinson produced 1,176 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns while throwing for 20 scores. He took over the reins at quarterback in 2010 and started all 13 games. He set the single-season Division-I FBS record for rushing yards by a quarterback (1,702) and became the only player in NCAA history to both pass and rush for 1,500 yards (2,570 passing yards). A native of Deerfield Beach, Florida, Robinson was a three-year starting quarterback at Deerfield Beach High School. He finished his career with 44 passing touchdowns and 13 scores on the ground. Robinson was also a standout member of the schools track and field team and was a member of the 2008 FHSAA state champion 4x100 meter relay team.Suns Ready to Host Southern League All-Star Game Jaguars sign fifth-round draft pick Denard Robinson The Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2013 fifthround draft pick Denard Robinson to a contract, the club announced today.

Snyder All through my life, I have been awkward when talking to someone of the opposite gender. I had thought by the time I got to this stage of life, post-young, I would have left a lot of this behind. I was doing fine until I heard a news report giving information that the word freshman was no longer a politically correct word to use when speaking of college students. They are now referred to as First-Year Students. According to this report, the word freshman is offensive to women. I brought this to the attention of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage to see if maybe she could shed a little bit of light on the situation. Unfortunately, she was as much in the dark about this as I was. I sat down with my wife and we began to figure out how that I, a very sensitive and politically correct person, could address somebody of the opposite gender. I guess I can still call them women, I said with a degree of certainty in my voice. My wife looked at me and slowly shook her head. Im afraid that the word women, is offensive to some of these politically correct individuals because the word ends in men, which is a masculine gender. It also applies with the word woman. So, I said rather thoughtfully rubbing my chin, I will have to begin calling those individuals females. I smiled and thought I had come up with a solution. I looked at my wife to get her approval. Shaking her head, she said, That word is not acceptable anymore, either. If you look at the word, you will find that it ends in the word male, and as you know that is masculine. Well, I said in a little bit of desperation, I guess Ill just have to call them lady. Not so fast, she said looking at me. How do you spell lady? The first three letters spell the word lad, and everybody knows a lad is a boy. I finally came up with the word I thought would solve all my political correctness dilemma. And I threw it at her. I will just call them a person. I was proud of my accomplishment. Buster, she said, you still dont get it, do you? The word person ends with the word son and everybody knows a son is a male child. I cannot call them women or woman or female or lady or person because somewhere in those words someone sees something masculine. I know what Ill do, I said to my wife with a smile dancing across my face, whenever I see someone of the opposite gender I will shout out loud and clear Hey, you. I think youre getting worse as you go along here, she said. You do know what the word hey begins with? I thought for a moment, sadly shaking my head, I looked at her and said, He? I will never arrive at any degree of political correctness, at least during my lifetime. And, I will never understand any one of the opposite gender, whatever you call them. I do take a little consolation in Gods Word. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee (Psalm 119:11 KJV). I do not have to be politically correct when I come to God because His Word is final. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
