Four have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of 36year-old Wesley Bridges at the Park View Place Apartments in Sans Souci. Jarquavis Davis, Roteia Hutchison, Eltonia Humphries and Josh Dukes are all charged with murder in the killing of Wesley Bridges. Bridges was found shot almost two weeks ago at the complex in the 6200 block of Barnes Road. He later died at a hospital. According to the police records, Bridges and another man were sitting outside the apartments waiting for a ride when they were approached by three men. Some conversation started between the men and then shots were fired. Investigators said they found a wallet containing the Florida Identification and Social Security cards belonging to Davis near the shooting scene. Davis was arrested Thursday on an outstanding capias and interviewed by detectives, who said he admitted to being involved in the killing but was not the shooter. Davis also told detectives the suspects originally intended to commit a robbery. Hutchison, who was also interviewed regarding her involvement in the case, admitted that she drove three people to the complex and that one of them was armed with a rifle, police said. She also told detectives that she heard three shots fired before picking up the three people and drove away from the scene, according to police. Investigators said they believe Dukes and Humphries were the shooters. They said one had a rifle and the other had a handgun. Dukes was arrested in Marion County. He is expected to be brought back to Jacksonville next week.Dknn."vjg"Wpfgtfqi. pqy"Ngcfu"kp"vjg Pgy"[qtm"Ekv{ Oc{qt‘u"Tceg Bill de Blasio was an afterthought in the New York City mayoral race a short time ago. Now, the is a front-runner. Presently, DeBlasio is the citys public advocate and the most liberal member of the Democratic field in an effort to replace Mayor Michael Bloomberg. DeBlasio has been a vocal critic of New Yorks Police Department, wants to raise taxes on the richest citizens to pay for pre-kindergarten programs. He has placed his interracial family at the center of his campaign and surged in the polls after Anthony Weiners support collapsed. The mayoral candidate says people want a real changeŽ after 12 years of Bloomberg. The primary is September 10, 2013. With President Obama seeking to provide better educational opportunities, the Florida and Georgia are grateful as they too help our youth. See Page 3.

AUGUST 24, 2013THE STARPAGE 3 KV‘U"NKVVNG"OGGEJKG CPF"HTKGPFU Little Meechie was in an early school age learning program that he enjoyed very much, especially his teacher. As an only child, he was extremely excited when he was told he was getting a baby brother or sister. Every morning he would talk with his teacher about the baby coming. One day he asked his mother how much longer will it take before the baby comes. At that point, his mother felt the baby move and told him to touch her stomach to feel the baby kicking. Little Meechie did so and immediately went to his room. The next morning he had nothing to say to the teacher. He appeared to be sad or just not feeling well so, the teacher asked him, Little Meechie, how is your baby brother or sister coming along?Ž Little Meechie, with tears rolling down his face said, Its not coming, my mother ate it.Ž The civil rights movement in the United States during the late 1950s and 1960s was the political, legal, and social struggle to gain full citizenship rights for black Americans and to achieve racial equality. Individuals and civil rights organizations challenged segregation and discrimination using a variety of activities, including protest marches, boycotts, and refusal to abide by segregation laws. On August 28, 1963, more than 250,000 demonstrators descended upon the nations capital to participate in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.Ž Not only was it the largest demonstration for human rights in United States history, but it also occasioned a rare display of unity among the various civil rights organizations. The event began with a rally at the Washington Monument featuring several celebrities and musicians. Participants then marched the mile-long National Mall to the Memorial. The three-hour long program at the Lincoln Memorial included speeches from prominent civil rights and religious leaders. The day ended with a meeting between the march leaders and President John F. Kennedy at the White House. The idea for the 1963 March on Washington was envisioned by A. Philip Randolph, a Jacksonville, Florida native, and a longtime civil rights activist dedicated to improving the economic condition of black Americans. When Randolph first proposed the march in late 1962, he received little response from other civil rights leaders. He knew that cooperation would be difficult because each had his own agenda for the civil rights movement, and the leaders competed for funding and press coverage. Success of the March on Washington would depend on the involvement of the so-called Big SixŽ„ Randolph and the heads of the five major civil rights organizations: Roy Wilkins of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP); Whitney Young, Jr., of the National Urban League; Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC); James Farmer of the Conference of Racial Equality (CORE); and John Lewis of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). The details and organization of the march were handled by Bayard Rustin, Randolphs trusted associate. Rustin was a veteran activist with extensive experience in putting together mass protest. With only two months to plan, Rustin established his headquarters in Harlem, NY, with a smaller office in Washington. He and his core staff of 200 volunteers quickly put together the largest peaceful demonstration in U.S. history.

The number one reason why it is imperative to start a new school year at the top of your game is so you can finish strong at the end of the year. If you walk in your first day of school prepared, focused, and ready to work you will end your school year as a champion. As a student, adults always tell you education is the key to your future. Indeed it is, performing well in school can unlock a world of possibilities. However, before you can reach the highest of your goals, you must finish school as a champion. Here are ten of my personal tips on how to start the school year strong and end as a champion. 1. Get a good nights rest. 2. Eat a good healthy breakfast in the morning. 3. Say a small prayer before you start your day and ask God to bless you as you embark on a new journey. 4. Wear one of your best outfits, so you can feel confident and prepared for a victory. 5. Before walking into the school doors, remind yourself how special you are. 6. Walk into class with a positive attitude. 7. Find a seat in the front of the classroom, so your teacher will know that you are focused and ready to receive knowledge. 8. Meet at least three new people in your class to see if you have anything in common. 9. Pay attention when the teacher is giving you all class rules and procedures. 10. End your day with a conversation with your parent or guardian about your action plan for this school year. Stay tuned for Kicking Back with Kelseyƒ..

Tens of thousands of activists on the National Mall. A preacher's son from Atlanta talking about his dream for the country, said Mr. Ben Jealous of the NAACP. We don't need a history lesson. Even if we weren't at the March itself even for those like me, who were not yet born Dr. King's words are etched into our minds as deeply as they are inscribed in stone at the base of his memorial. The preacher's son has taken his rightful place in the pantheon of national heroes. We don't need to watch a rerun of that fateful day. We need a sequel. On Saturday, August 24th, the NAACP is co-hosting a sequel to the March on Washington for Jobs and Justice: the 2013 March on Washington. The march begins at 8:00 am, at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Join us. If this year has shown us anything, it's that the work of the 1963 march is not yet finished. Texas and South Carolina are sprinting forward with voter ID after the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act. African American unemployment has flat lined. Our children are gunned down each and every day in senseless acts of violence. Trayvon Martin lies in the ground after one such senseless act. At the same time, our culture of civic engagement is experiencing a renaissance. In the past month, hundreds of cities held vigils and rallies to protest the Zimmerman verdict. The nation is having a serious conversation about racial profiling for the first time since 9/11. In North Carolina, Moral Mondays has grown larger with each passing week. On this fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, we should celebrate our history, but it's more important that we never stop making history. Meet us at the Lincoln Memorial. Join us on August 24th. Making History... AgainUCXG"VKOG"("OQPG[."EQOG"VQ"VJG"CWEVKQPUweeguu"Eqogu"Htqo"ECP0 Hcknwtg"Eqogu"Htqo"ECP‘V0

A well-mannered and considerate woman with high standards of proper behavior. A lady. Gracious. Sophisticated. Charming. Charlotte Dwight Stewart personified all the words that simply describe a lady. She always had a pleasant smile and kind things to say. She enjoyed attending social events, which is why she was perfect as social columnist for The Florida Star from 1980 to 2002. Clara McLaughlin, The Florida Stars publisher, says when she bought the paper Charlotte told her that she would continue writing the column until she was eighty! True to her word, she retired in 2002 handing over the pen to the late Betty Asque Davis, who passed the pen to me. I dont remember when I last saw Charlotte. It may have been at Jazzland Caf, a special evening when sons Michael and Dennis and daughter-in-law Linda brought her to a performance of Longineu Parsons and Nat Adderly Jr. last November. She was like a queen in audience with her subjects as person after person stopped by to speak or give hugs and kisses during intermission. I always told her, I want to be like you when I grow up!Ž Charlotte Christine Dwight was born in Jacksonville on September 28, 1922 to David H. Dwight Sr. and wife Florida Rebecca. She attended local schools, graduating from Boylan Haven School for Girls in 1939. In 1943, she graduated from the former Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College (FAMC, which would become FAMU) with the bachelor of science degree. She later completed educational certifications from Northwestern University and University of Colorado. For thirty-seven years, Charlotte Stewart worked for the Duval County Public Schools as a physical education teacher and guidance counselor. After retirement she continued in the field of education working as a teacher and counselor in Adult Services for Florida Junior College, now Florida State College at Jacksonville. Her career accomplishments also included working as a Congressional Aide to Congresswoman Corrine Brown (1996 … 1998) and an outside sales travel counselor with American Express Travel. Charlotte was a dedicated steward of the African American community and gave back in many ways: Chaired many programs involving African American youth as a member of the Arts Assembly of Jacksonville, predecessor to todays Cultural Council of Jacksonville, Inc. Member of the cosmetology section of the Florida Professional Regulations Board. Served as a member of the American Lung Association in Florida, Jacksonville Founder of the David H. Dwight Sr. Memorial Committee for Scouting Member of the Circle of Three, with Camilla Thompson and the late Dr. Hortense Gray, who researched and developed a slide presentation of the history of African Americans in Jacksonville. The group presented An Oral Black History of Jacksonville from 1925-1959Ž to organizations throughout the city. As a devoted member of Historic Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church, she served in many leadership positions, including Trustee She was the recipient of numerous awards and certificates from organizations such as Bethel Baptist Institutional Church, United Negro College Fund, Baker Correctional Institution, University of North Florida, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, and the J.P. Small Foundation Scholarship Hall of Fame. Her social activities included membership in the Smart Set and Entre Nous Bridge Clubs and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Charlotte Stewart was a devoted wife of the late Dennis Stewart Sr. She enjoyed a close relationship with her sons, Dennis Stewart Jr. (Linda) and Michael D. Stewart. She will be remembered tenderly by daughter-in-law Lydia Stewart; grandchildren Marcus, Patrick, Maya, Eros, and Cherub Stewart; great-grandchildren Khari, Amani, Noah, Alexis, and Zaria; siblings Lydia Wooden and David H. Dwight Jr. (Bettye); beloved friend Iona King; and extended family. The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. … 7 p.m. on Friday, August 23, 2013 at Historic Mt. Zion AME Church, 201 E.

Bullock Offense: Possession of Firearm at School Back to School Safety! Fall is just around the corner and so is the time for children across the country to start going back to school. The first week of school may produce heavy pedestrian traffic as well as vehicular traffic. Drivers should be mindful of the following: Many students will be walking to school along the countys roadways Expect heavy traffic back-ups in school zones Parents should have children ride school busses when bus routes are available alleviating unnecessary traffic in school zones Motorists should avoid school zones if at all possible Be patient and drive carefully The first few weeks of school are always extra busy so leave yourself plenty of time to travel Reduce or eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings Put down the phone Do not text and drive Adults who drive children to school should leave early to avoid the rush. Vehicles must stop for all school buses when the stop sign is out and lights are flashing. This is true even if the bus is on the opposite side of the street unless a median more than four feet wide divides the road. Teach children to catch the eye of drivers when walking in front of a school bus. Always drive slowly in school zones and pay close attention to crossing guards. What to do with your children: Plan a safe route for your children to take to school and walk it with your child so you will know that they are comfortable with it. Also plan an alternate route in case it should become necessary. Whenever possible, it's best to walk with other children. Be sure that your children know their address, phone number, and a work number for Mom or Dad. Also be sure the child knows how and when to use 911. If your child will be home alone after school, make sure that he calls you or a designated contact person as soon as they arrive home. Make sure your children are comfortable talking to you about anything that makes them feel uneasy or uncomfortable while away from home such as persons acting suspicious on their way to and from school or if they feel bullied by other children. Teach your children that it is okay to say "no." Tell them to trust their instincts. Safety Man Tries to Rob Gas Station with Fake Gun and Fails to Open Cash Register At approximately 9:43 p.m., officers responded to a report of a robbery at a gas station. Investigation revealed that a male subject had come into the business, attempted to cover his face with a yellow t-shirt, and had demanded money from the clerk. The suspect pointed with a hand covered by a hat at first and then pulled out what was later discovered to be cardboard covered in tin foil, and pointed it like a gun at the clerk. The suspect struggled to open the cash register and ended up taking a donation can containing change from the counter. He then fled on a bicycle. No one was injured in the incident. The suspect, identified as 41-year-old Timothy E. Foster was located in the shed of a local residence. He was taken into custody by patrol officers and a K-9 dog. Foster was charged with charged with strong arm robbery. Timothy Foster Inmates Try to Smuggle Heroine Through Mail 30-year-old inmate David Michael Gavin was being prepared for transport and transfer to another jail. Investigators say detention officers began to grow suspicious when Gavin began to ask every officer and jail employee he saw or passed to help him get his mail. Mail room clerks were asked to examine Gavins mail more closely. Four pieces of stamped mail were initially found addressed to Gavin and closer examination of the pieces revealed small square pieces of orange paper concealed behind each of the postage stamps. The contents of the envelopes were provided to the inmate for his jail transport and detectives retained the envelope to begin their investigation so they can identify the substance behind the stamps. Through their subsequent investigation, detectives discovered additional pieces of mail addressed to Gavin, as well as other pieces of mail addressed to 30-year-old inmate Jermonte Rushing, which had the same type of orange paper concealed behind the stamps and appeared to have similar handwriting to the letters addressed to Gavin. Research and testing of the orange paper determined the substance to be suboxone or heroin in a breath strip. Detectives further described the substance to be an opiate in the form of a sublingual film. The investigation further revealed that Gavin recruited his cell mate Rushing to have the mail sent to him in exchange for payment and that the two sold/distributed the contraband to other inmates at the jail. Investigators say that each stamps was sold for $20 and that each stamp was five dosage units if cut into five individual strips. Through their investigation, detectives were able to identify 29-year-old Kaitlyn Pergola as the source of supply of suboxone to Gavin and Rushing. Detectives say she used two fictitious return addresses that were later connected to her. Police also say Pergola is Gavins girlfriend. Pergola was arrested and during her interview with detectives, Pergola admitted to the crime. She was taken to jail without further incident. Gavin and Rushing were both charged with introduction/possession of contraband in a county detention facility. Pergola was charged with two counts of introduction/possession of contraband in a county detention facility and violation of probation. Since the investigation began on August 1, 2013, detectives intercepted a total of 11 pieces of mail containing the controlled substance. The investigation continues. David Gavin Jermonte Rushing Kaitlyn Pergola Man Mistakenly Pulls Out Knife on Officer A man was arrested after pulling out a knife on an offi-cer outside a courthouse. Investigation revealed that the suspect, identified as 56-yearold Larry Jackson, had been walking along a sidewalk right next to a courthouse. An officer had been walking in the same direction, directly behind Jackson, as he headed towards the parking garage. While walking, Jackson suddenly turned around towards the officer who was not in uniform nor on duty at the time. Jackson dropped a green towel that had concealed his knife and took an aggressive stance towards the officer with the knife in his right hand. Jackson yelled, "What?!" at the officer, who then identified himself as law enforcement and drew his firearm. At that point, Jackson dropped his knife and complied with the officers orders and other officers who arrived on scene. Records show that Jackson has been in and out of jail for the last 10 years for charges including burglary, grand theft, and petty theft. Jackson was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. He is being held on $5,000 bond. Larry Jackson

LOCAL AUGUST 24, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida PD Office Assists Local Students with Back to School Efforts Jacksonville, Fl (August 16, 2013): As the 2013 school year starts, students from Clay and Duval counties will benefit from the dedicated efforts provided by the employees of the Office of Public Defender Matt Shirk. Over the past few weeks, attorneys and support staff from the off ice have participated in multiple school supply drives and an educational program, all in the interest of improving the lives of public school children. Each summer, the PD Office organizes a school supply drive to benefit children in homeless families called Stuff the Bus for S ulzbacher. Adding to the tradition, the office also collected gently used childrens clothing. On Wednesday (8/14) APD Melina Buncome, Legal Assistant Rhon da Patrick and Chief APD Refik Eler delivered several boxes of supplies to the Sulzbacher Center (right). This year, the Clay County office carried on the tradition of holding school supply drive to benefit underprivileged students at C.E. Bennett Elementary School in Green Cove Springs. Legal Assistan t Beth Frill delivered the dozens school supplies collected by the Clay County staff. The PD Office, along with multiple other organizations, is also part icipating in the State Attorneys Office: Back to School Event by colleting and donating school supplies to benefit local families in the Juvenile Diversion Prog ram. In an effort to promote a better understanding of how school aged children are affected by the legal system, Juvenile Director Rob Mason and APD Courtney Drew (pictured, left) educated personnel at Duval County Public Schools on collateral consequences of juvenile arrests. More than 50 officers from the Duval County School Police Department participated in the hour long forum. The duo explained to officers that when a young person is charged criminally, he or she will likely face serious complications with future financial aid needs, the ability to obtain a drivers license, acceptance to college and immigration status among other things.

(Moscow, Russia) It continues to be a phenomenal year for Jamaicas golden girl of the track Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce. Sporting a shocking pink hairstyle, the newlywed secured herself a bounty of gold medals and secured her spot in the history books. She is officially the first woman ever to win gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the World Championships. The double gold medalling Olympian is getting ready to compete next week in the Diamond League in Zurich. AUGUST24, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9Suns Take Two Games From Barons, Leave For Road Miles College Establishes Golf Program in 2013 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. „ The Jacksonville Suns (32-21, 67-54) finished off their five-game series against the Birmingham Barons (27-28, 71-54) with a walk-off hit in the tenth inning of game four, followed by a 7-1 rainshortened victory in the series finale at Bragan Field. Before playing the fifth and final game of the series, the Suns and Barons needed to finish a game suspended in Saturdays early morning hours due to league curfew. Scoreless into the tenth inning, Jacksonville earned a series victory when Austin Barnes singled home Michael Main with the winning run. The 1-0 Suns win propelled Jacksonville into the finale, where left-hander Andrew Heaney surrendered only a solo home run while the Suns offense exploded. Jacksonville, down 1-0, took the lead in the bottom half of the first inning on Derek Dietrichs three-run home run and never relinquished the advantage. Barnes RBI single made it a 4-1 Suns lead in the second, and the home squad plated three more runs in the third to finish off the nights scoring. Heaney, meanwhile, struck out four batters over five innings, while allowing just two hits. After the left-hander retired Keenyn Walker for the final out in the fifth, the game was sent into a rain delay and ultimately called final once the weather did not let up. The Suns now head out on the road for an 11game, ten day road trip in Chattanooga and Montgomery. The trip begins against the Lookouts on Sunday, with right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (4-3, 3.65) set to make the start for Jacksonville. The Lookouts will go with right-hander Duke von Schamann (3-4, 4.92). First pitch is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. ET. Suns fans can listen to Sundays game on the Suns Baseball Network, 94.1 WSOS-FM or through jaxsuns.com, MiLB.com or the Suns iPhone or Android app, beginning at 5:15 p.m. ET with the UF Health Suns Pre-Game Show. Rolle Takes Office in Atlanta as Youngest Bahamas Consul General for Jurisdiction By Arthia Nixon, Press Secretary Bahamas Consulate General Atlanta (Atlanta, Georgia) With the city of Atlanta repeatedly making the list as one of the top ten North American cities for young professionals/CEOs in Forbes and BizJournal, the appointment of Randy C. Rolle as Consul General to the Bahamas Consulate of Atlanta speaks to the areas abundance of youth-led companies and organizations. Since taking officially taking office in July 2013, Rolle has already been busy representing The Commonwealth of The Bahamas in different forums. He also has been pursuing opportunities in several fields such as investment, education, trade and economy, entertainment and films, athletics and more. The focus is not just Atlanta even though our office is based there,Ž explained Rolle at a recent briefing. Our region includes Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Tennessee. Based on findings of a recent focus group, we are learning that quite a few Bahamians living in our jurisdiction do not know we represent them or understand the purpose of having a consulate office. Many assume it is simply for passports or for students and it is much more than that. Weve already begun implementing ways to connect the diaspora to our office so that we can mutually be abreast of what is going on at home and abroad as it pertains to our citizens.Ž Prior to this post, Rolle, received his professional education from Bethune Cookman College and Johnson & Whales University, worked in the hospitality industry. As a 1998 recipient of the Caribbean Hotel Association scholarship, he was afforded opportunities to travel to Europe and North America as a Bahamian representative. He also was a stellar sales executive at Atlantis Harborside Resort, rounding off the highest sales volumes for 2003, coinciding with him heading the special operations department he implemented. Just before his appointment, Rolle was certified as a project manager and worked with The Ministry of Tourism Bahamas. SHELLYANNMAKESHISTORY Rihanna Sued Over Grandmothers Unpaid Funeral Expenses A Barbados furneral arrangement company is allegedly suing Rihanna over unpaid funeral bills. The pop star was said to have spared no expense in honoring her beloved Gran Gran Dolly (Clara Brathwaite) who died of cancer last year. They claim she only paid a quarter of the $150,000 bill and has refused to pay the balance. By Mike Bonts For the first time in school history, Miles College will offer golf as a sponsored sport the school recently announced. The Golden Bears will begin its inaugural season during the 2013-2014 school year. This new golf team is a great opportunity for Miles College to show yet another component of the culture, class and civility that we instill in our students.Ž says President George T. French. It is a testament of the standard of excellence that we expect from our students academically and holisticallyŽ. Being charged with the task of building the Golden Bear program is first year head coach Leonard Smoot. A 24-year retired veteran of United States Marine Corps (USMC), Smoot brings over 20 years of competitive golf experience. He has several top-10 finishes in competitive tournaments throughout Southeast Asia and Europe, including wins at the Wago Championship (Okinawa, Japan) as well as the Staff & Officer Championship (Awase, Japan). In 2002, Smoot became just the third African-American to make the United States Marines Golf Team. Since 2008, he also has served as a mentor/coach for the Professional Womens Golf Association while also previously serving in various roles for many regional golf tournaments, including the South Region Minority Supplier Development Council Golf Classic (SRMSDC), the Museum of Urban Art Golf Tournament, the Stillman College Scholarship Golf Tournament, and Alabama Leadership Foundation Golf Classic. Im very excited to be a part of establishing the golf program at Miles College. Adding golf provides a distinguished opportunity for the institution to have a positive impact on the lives of young adults and potentially open doors for them that may not have, otherwise, been available,Ž says Smoot, who has also been a competitive boxer for over 30 years, including competing as a member of the USMC boxing team, and serving as a boxing coach. The Miles College golf team will take part in non-competitive events during the fall semester, beginning with the National Black College Hall of Fame Golf Invitational, September 27th-29th in Atlanta, GA. The Golden Bears season will officially begin in spring 2014. The motto for our golf team this season will be P.M.A., which stands for Positive Mental Attitude. What this means is that regardless of the situation, we want our student-athletes to have a positive mental attitude as well as the will to win, whether its on the golf course, in the classroom, or just functioning in society,Ž Smoot stated. Coach Smoot states that he has already successfully recruited four players, two from Atlanta, GA and two from Kimberly, AL, that are set to enroll as freshmen this fall and will look to add more golfers to the team prior to the start of the upcoming season. My goal is to find good kids that want to receive a quality education. We want to develop a successful golf program that can compete for SIAC Championships as well as NCAA Division II Championships,Ž says Smoot. For inquiries about the Miles College golf program, contact Head Coach Leonard Smoot by email at lsmoot@miles.edu or by phone at 205-929-1617.

Four have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of 36year-old Wesley Bridges at the Park View Place Apartments in Sans Souci. Jarquavis Davis, Roteia Hutchison, Eltonia Humphries and Josh Dukes are all charged with murder in the killing of Wesley Bridges. Bridges was found shot almost two weeks ago at the complex in the 6200 block of Barnes Road. He later died at a hospital. According to the police records, Bridges and another man were sitting outside the apartments waiting for a ride when they were approached by three men. Some conversation started between the men and then shots were fired. Investigators said they found a wallet containing the Florida Identification and Social Security cards belonging to Davis near the shooting scene. Davis was arrested Thursday on an outstanding capias and interviewed by detectives, who said he admitted to being involved in the killing but was not the shooter. Davis also told detectives the suspects originally intended to commit a robbery. Hutchison, who was also interviewed regarding her involvement in the case, admitted that she drove three people to the complex and that one of them was armed with a rifle, police said. She also told detectives that she heard three shots fired before picking up the three people and drove away from the scene, according to police. Investigators said they believe Dukes and Humphries were the shooters. They said one had a rifle and the other had a handgun. Dukes was arrested in Marion County. He is expected to be brought back to Jacksonville next week.Dknn."vjg"Wpfgtfqi. pqy"Ngcfu"kp"vjg Pgy"[qtm"Ekv{ Oc{qtu"Tceg Bill de Blasio was an afterthought in the New York City mayoral race a short time ago. Now, the is a front-runner. Presently, DeBlasio is the citys public advocate and the most liberal member of the Democratic field in an effort to replace Mayor Michael Bloomberg. DeBlasio has been a vocal critic of New Yorks Police Department, wants to raise taxes on the richest citizens to pay for pre-kindergarten programs. He has placed his interracial family at the center of his campaign and surged in the polls after Anthony Weiners support collapsed. The mayoral candidate says people want a real change after 12 years of Bloomberg. The primary is September 10, 2013. With President Obama seeking to provide better educational opportunities, the Florida and Georgia are grateful as they too help our youth. See Page 3.

AUGUST 24, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 3 KVU"NKVVNG"OGGEJKG CPF"HTKGPFU Little Meechie was in an early school age learning program that he enjoyed very much, especially his teacher. As an only child, he was extremely excited when he was told he was getting a baby brother or sister. Every morning he would talk with his teacher about the baby coming. One day he asked his mother how much longer will it take before the baby comes. At that point, his mother felt the baby move and told him to touch her stomach to feel the baby kicking. Little Meechie did so and immediately went to his room. The next morning he had nothing to say to the teacher. He appeared to be sad or just not feeling well so, the teacher asked him, Little Meechie, how is your baby brother or sister coming along? Little Meechie, with tears rolling down his face said, Its not coming, my mother ate it. The civil rights movement in the United States during the late 1950s and 1960s was the political, legal, and social struggle to gain full citizenship rights for black Americans and to achieve racial equality. Individuals and civil rights organizations challenged segregation and discrimination using a variety of activities, including protest marches, boycotts, and refusal to abide by segregation laws. On August 28, 1963, more than 250,000 demonstrators descended upon the nations capital to participate in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Not only was it the largest demonstration for human rights in United States history, but it also occasioned a rare display of unity among the various civil rights organizations. The event began with a rally at the Washington Monument featuring several celebrities and musicians. Participants then marched the mile-long National Mall to the Memorial. The three-hour long program at the Lincoln Memorial included speeches from prominent civil rights and religious leaders. The day ended with a meeting between the march leaders and President John F. Kennedy at the White House. The idea for the 1963 March on Washington was envisioned by A. Philip Randolph, a Jacksonville, Florida native, and a longtime civil rights activist dedicated to improving the economic condition of black Americans. When Randolph first proposed the march in late 1962, he received little response from other civil rights leaders. He knew that cooperation would be difficult because each had his own agenda for the civil rights movement, and the leaders competed for funding and press coverage. Success of the March on Washington would depend on the involvement of the so-called Big Six Randolph and the heads of the five major civil rights organizations: Roy Wilkins of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP); Whitney Young, Jr., of the National Urban League; Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC); James Farmer of the Conference of Racial Equality (CORE); and John Lewis of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). The details and organization of the march were handled by Bayard Rustin, Randolphs trusted associate. Rustin was a veteran activist with extensive experience in putting together mass protest. With only two months to plan, Rustin established his headquarters in Harlem, NY, with a smaller office in Washington. He and his core staff of 200 volunteers quickly put together the largest peaceful demonstration in U.S. history.

The number one reason why it is imperative to start a new school year at the top of your game is so you can finish strong at the end of the year. If you walk in your first day of school prepared, focused, and ready to work you will end your school year as a champion. As a student, adults always tell you education is the key to your future. Indeed it is, performing well in school can unlock a world of possibilities. However, before you can reach the highest of your goals, you must finish school as a champion. Here are ten of my personal tips on how to start the school year strong and end as a champion. 1. Get a good nights rest. 2. Eat a good healthy breakfast in the morning. 3. Say a small prayer before you start your day and ask God to bless you as you embark on a new journey. 4. Wear one of your best outfits, so you can feel confident and prepared for a victory. 5. Before walking into the school doors, remind yourself how special you are. 6. Walk into class with a positive attitude. 7. Find a seat in the front of the classroom, so your teacher will know that you are focused and ready to receive knowledge. 8. Meet at least three new people in your class to see if you have anything in common. 9. Pay attention when the teacher is giving you all class rules and procedures. 10. End your day with a conversation with your parent or guardian about your action plan for this school year. Stay tuned for Kicking Back with Kelsey..

Tens of thousands of activists on the National Mall. A preacher's son from Atlanta talking about his dream for the country, said Mr. Ben Jealous of the NAACP. We don't need a history lesson. Even if we weren't at the March itself even for those like me, who were not yet born Dr. King's words are etched into our minds as deeply as they are inscribed in stone at the base of his memorial. The preacher's son has taken his rightful place in the pantheon of national heroes. We don't need to watch a rerun of that fateful day. We need a sequel. On Saturday, August 24th, the NAACP is co-hosting a sequel to the March on Washington for Jobs and Justice: the 2013 March on Washington. The march begins at 8:00 am, at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Join us. If this year has shown us anything, it's that the work of the 1963 march is not yet finished. Texas and South Carolina are sprinting forward with voter ID after the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act. African American unemployment has flat lined. Our children are gunned down each and every day in senseless acts of violence. Trayvon Martin lies in the ground after one such senseless act. At the same time, our culture of civic engagement is experiencing a renaissance. In the past month, hundreds of cities held vigils and rallies to protest the Zimmerman verdict. The nation is having a serious conversation about racial profiling for the first time since 9/11. In North Carolina, Moral Mondays has grown larger with each passing week. On this fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, we should celebrate our history, but it's more important that we never stop making history. Meet us at the Lincoln Memorial. Join us on August 24th. Making History... AgainUCXG"VKOG"("OQPG[."EQOG"VQ"VJG"CWEVKQPUweeguu"Eqogu"Htqo"ECP0 Hcknwtg"Eqogu"Htqo"ECPV0

PAGE 4 THE STAR AUGUST 24, 2013 Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.Charlotte Dwight StewartSeptember 28, 1922-August 14, 2013lady n. A well-mannered and considerate woman with high standards of proper behavior. A lady. Gracious. Sophisticated. Charming. Charlotte Dwight Stewart personified all the words that simply describe a lady. She always had a pleasant smile and kind things to say. She enjoyed attending social events, which is why she was perfect as social columnist for The Florida Star from 1980 to 2002. Clara McLaughlin, The Florida Stars publisher, says when she bought the paper Charlotte told her that she would continue writing the column until she was eighty! True to her word, she retired in 2002 handing over the pen to the late Betty Asque Davis, who passed the pen to me. I dont remember when I last saw Charlotte. It may have been at Jazzland Caf, a special evening when sons Michael and Dennis and daughter-in-law Linda brought her to a performance of Longineu Parsons and Nat Adderly Jr. last November. She was like a queen in audience with her subjects as person after person stopped by to speak or give hugs and kisses during intermission. I always told her, I want to be like you when I grow up! Charlotte Christine Dwight was born in Jacksonville on September 28, 1922 to David H. Dwight Sr. and wife Florida Rebecca. She attended local schools, graduating from Boylan Haven School for Girls in 1939. In 1943, she graduated from the former Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College (FAMC, which would become FAMU) with the bachelor of science degree. She later completed educational certifications from Northwestern University and University of Colorado. For thirty-seven years, Charlotte Stewart worked for the Duval County Public Schools as a physical education teacher and guidance counselor. After retirement she continued in the field of education working as a teacher and counselor in Adult Services for Florida Junior College, now Florida State College at Jacksonville. Her career accomplishments also included working as a Congressional Aide to Congresswoman Corrine Brown (1996 1998) and an outside sales travel counselor with American Express Travel. Charlotte was a dedicated steward of the African American community and gave back in many ways: Chaired many programs involving African American youth as a member of the Arts Assembly of Jacksonville, predecessor to todays Cultural Council of Jacksonville, Inc. Member of the cosmetology section of the Florida Professional Regulations Board. Served as a member of the American Lung Association in Florida, Jacksonville Founder of the David H. Dwight Sr. Memorial Committee for Scouting Member of the Circle of Three, with Camilla Thompson and the late Dr. Hortense Gray, who researched and developed a slide presentation of the history of African Americans in Jacksonville. The group presented An Oral Black History of Jacksonville from 1925-1959 to organizations throughout the city. As a devoted member of Historic Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church, she served in many leadership positions, including Trustee She was the recipient of numerous awards and certificates from organizations such as Bethel Baptist Institutional Church, United Negro College Fund, Baker Correctional Institution, University of North Florida, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, and the J.P. Small Foundation Scholarship Hall of Fame. Her social activities included membership in the Smart Set and Entre Nous Bridge Clubs and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Charlotte Stewart was a devoted wife of the late Dennis Stewart Sr. She enjoyed a close relationship with her sons, Dennis Stewart Jr. (Linda) and Michael D. Stewart. She will be remembered tenderly by daughter-in-law Lydia Stewart; grandchildren Marcus, Patrick, Maya, Eros, and Cherub Stewart; great-grandchildren Khari, Amani, Noah, Alexis, and Zaria; siblings Lydia Wooden and David H. Dwight Jr. (Bettye); beloved friend Iona King; and extended family. The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. 7 p.m. on Friday, August 23, 2013 at Historic Mt. Zion AME Church, 201 E.

Bullock Offense: Possession of Firearm at School Back to School Safety! Fall is just around the corner and so is the time for children across the country to start going back to school. The first week of school may produce heavy pedestrian traffic as well as vehicular traffic. Drivers should be mindful of the following: Many students will be walking to school along the countys roadways Expect heavy traffic back-ups in school zones Parents should have children ride school busses when bus routes are available alleviating unnecessary traffic in school zones Motorists should avoid school zones if at all possible Be patient and drive carefully The first few weeks of school are always extra busy so leave yourself plenty of time to travel Reduce or eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings Put down the phone Do not text and drive Adults who drive children to school should leave early to avoid the rush. Vehicles must stop for all school buses when the stop sign is out and lights are flashing. This is true even if the bus is on the opposite side of the street unless a median more than four feet wide divides the road. Teach children to catch the eye of drivers when walking in front of a school bus. Always drive slowly in school zones and pay close attention to crossing guards. What to do with your children: Plan a safe route for your children to take to school and walk it with your child so you will know that they are comfortable with it. Also plan an alternate route in case it should become necessary. Whenever possible, it's best to walk with other children. Be sure that your children know their address, phone number, and a work number for Mom or Dad. Also be sure the child knows how and when to use 911. If your child will be home alone after school, make sure that he calls you or a designated contact person as soon as they arrive home. Make sure your children are comfortable talking to you about anything that makes them feel uneasy or uncomfortable while away from home such as persons acting suspicious on their way to and from school or if they feel bullied by other children. Teach your children that it is okay to say "no." Tell them to trust their instincts. Safety Man Tries to Rob Gas Station with Fake Gun and Fails to Open Cash Register At approximately 9:43 p.m., officers responded to a report of a robbery at a gas station. Investigation revealed that a male subject had come into the business, attempted to cover his face with a yellow t-shirt, and had demanded money from the clerk. The suspect pointed with a hand covered by a hat at first and then pulled out what was later discovered to be cardboard covered in tin foil, and pointed it like a gun at the clerk. The suspect struggled to open the cash register and ended up taking a donation can containing change from the counter. He then fled on a bicycle. No one was injured in the incident. The suspect, identified as 41-year-old Timothy E. Foster was located in the shed of a local residence. He was taken into custody by patrol officers and a K-9 dog. Foster was charged with charged with strong arm robbery. Timothy Foster Inmates Try to Smuggle Heroine Through Mail 30-year-old inmate David Michael Gavin was being prepared for transport and transfer to another jail. Investigators say detention officers began to grow suspicious when Gavin began to ask every officer and jail employee he saw or passed to help him get his mail. Mail room clerks were asked to examine Gavins mail more closely. Four pieces of stamped mail were initially found addressed to Gavin and closer examination of the pieces revealed small square pieces of orange paper concealed behind each of the postage stamps. The contents of the envelopes were provided to the inmate for his jail transport and detectives retained the envelope to begin their investigation so they can identify the substance behind the stamps. Through their subsequent investigation, detectives discovered additional pieces of mail addressed to Gavin, as well as other pieces of mail addressed to 30-year-old inmate Jermonte Rushing, which had the same type of orange paper concealed behind the stamps and appeared to have similar handwriting to the letters addressed to Gavin. Research and testing of the orange paper determined the substance to be suboxone or heroin in a breath strip. Detectives further described the substance to be an opiate in the form of a sublingual film. The investigation further revealed that Gavin recruited his cell mate Rushing to have the mail sent to him in exchange for payment and that the two sold/distributed the contraband to other inmates at the jail. Investigators say that each stamps was sold for $20 and that each stamp was five dosage units if cut into five individual strips. Through their investigation, detectives were able to identify 29-year-old Kaitlyn Pergola as the source of supply of suboxone to Gavin and Rushing. Detectives say she used two fictitious return addresses that were later connected to her. Police also say Pergola is Gavins girlfriend. Pergola was arrested and during her interview with detectives, Pergola admitted to the crime. She was taken to jail without further incident. Gavin and Rushing were both charged with introduction/possession of contraband in a county detention facility. Pergola was charged with two counts of introduction/possession of contraband in a county detention facility and violation of probation. Since the investigation began on August 1, 2013, detectives intercepted a total of 11 pieces of mail containing the controlled substance. The investigation continues. David Gavin Jermonte Rushing Kaitlyn Pergola Man Mistakenly Pulls Out Knife on Officer A man was arrested after pulling out a knif e on an offi-cer outside a courthouse. Investigation revealed that the suspect, identified as 56-yearold Larry Jackson, had been walking along a sidewalk right next to a courthouse. An officer had been walking in the same direction, directly behind Jackson, as he headed towards the parking garage. While walking, Jackson suddenly turned around towards the officer who was not in uniform nor on duty at the time. Jackson dropped a green towel that had concealed his knife and took an aggressive stance towards the officer with the knife in his right hand. Jackson yelled, "What?!" at the officer, who then identified himself as law enforcement and drew his firearm. At that point, Jackson dropped his knife and complied with the officers orders and other officers who arrived on scene. Records show that Jackson has been in and out of jail for the last 10 years for charges including burglary, grand theft, and petty theft. Jackson was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. He is being held on $5,000 bond. Larry Jackson

LOCAL AUGUST 24, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida PD Office Assists Local Students with Back to School Efforts Jacksonville, Fl (August 16, 2013): As the 2013 school year starts, students from Clay and Duval counties will benefit from the dedicated efforts provided by the employees of the Office of Public Defender Matt Shirk. Over the past few weeks, attorneys and support staff from the office have participated in multiple school supply drives and an educational program, all in the interest of improving the lives of public school children. Each summer, the PD Office organizes a school supply drive to benefit children in homeless families called Stuff the Bus for Sulzbacher. Adding to the tradition, the office also collected gently used childrens clothing. On Wednesday (8/14) APD Melina Buncome, Legal Assistant Rhonda Patrick and Chief APD Refik Eler delivered several boxes of supplies to the Sulzbacher Center (right). This year, the Clay County office carried on the tradition of holding school supply drive to benefit underprivileged students at C.E. Bennett Elementary School in Green Cove Springs. Legal Assistan t Beth Frill delivered the dozens school supplies collected by the Clay County staff. The PD Office, along with multiple other organizations, is also participating in the State Attorneys Office: Back to School Event by colleting and donating school supplies to benefit local families in the Juvenile Diversion Program. In an effort to promote a better understanding of how school aged children are affected by the legal system, Juvenile Director Rob Mason and APD Courtney Drew (pictured, left) educated personnel at Duval County Public Schools on collateral consequences of juvenile arrests. More than 50 officers from the Duval County School Police Department participated in the hour long forum. The duo explained to officers that when a young person is charged criminally, he or she will likely face serious complications with future financial aid needs, the ability to obtain a drivers license, acceptance to college and immigration status among other things.

(Moscow, Russia) It continues to be a phenomenal year for Jamaicas golden girl of the track Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce. Sporting a shocking pink hairstyle, the newlywed secured herself a bounty of gold medals and secured her spot in the history books. She is officially the first woman ever to win gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the World Championships. The double gold medalling Olympian is getting ready to compete next week in the Diamond League in Zurich. AUGUST, 2013 THESTAR PAGESuns Take Two Games From Barons, Leave For Road Miles College Establishes Golf Program in 2013JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The Jacksonville Suns (32-21, 67-54) finished off their five-game series against the Birmingham Barons (27-28, 71-54) with a walk-off hit in the tenth inning of game four, followed by a 7-1 rainshortened victory in the series finale at Bragan Field. Before playing the fifth and final game of the series, the Suns and Barons needed to finish a game suspended in Saturdays early morning hours due to league curfew. Scoreless into the tenth inning, Jacksonville earned a series victory when Austin Barnes singled home Michael Main with the winning run. The 1-0 Suns win propelled Jacksonville into the finale, where left-hander Andrew Heaney surrendered only a solo home run while the Suns offense exploded. Jacksonville, down 1-0, took the lead in the bottom half of the first inning on Derek Dietrichs three-run home run and never relinquished the advantage. Barnes RBI single made it a 4-1 Suns lead in the second, and the home squad plated three more runs in the third to finish off the nights scoring. Heaney, meanwhile, struck out four batters over five innings, while allowing just two hits. After the left-hander retired Keenyn Walker for the final out in the fifth, the game was sent into a rain delay and ultimately called final once the weather did not let up. The Suns now head out on the road for an 11game, ten day road trip in Chattanooga and Montgomery. The trip begins against the Lookouts on Sunday, with right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (4-3, 3.65) set to make the start for Jacksonville. The Lookouts will go with right-hander Duke von Schamann (3-4, 4.92). First pitch is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. ET. Suns fans can listen to Sundays game on the Suns Baseball Network, 94.1 WSOS-FM or through jaxsuns.com, MiLB.com or the Suns iPhone or Android app, beginning at 5:15 p.m. ET with the UF Health Suns Pre-Game Show. Rolle Takes Office in Atlanta as Youngest Bahamas Consul General for JurisdictionBy Arthia Nixon, Press Secretary Bahamas Consulate General Atlanta (Atlanta, Georgia) With the city of Atlanta repeatedly making the list as one of the top ten North American cities for young professionals/CEOs in Forbes and BizJournal, the appointment of Randy C. Rolle as Consul General to the Bahamas Consulate of Atlanta speaks to the areas abundance of youth-led companies and organizations. Since taking officially taking office in July 2013, Rolle has already been busy representing The Commonwealth of The Bahamas in different forums. He also has been pursuing opportunities in several fields such as investment, education, trade and economy, entertainment and films, athletics and more. The focus is not just Atlanta even though our office is based there, explained Rolle at a recent briefing. Our region includes Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Tennessee. Based on findings of a recent focus group, we are learning that quite a few Bahamians living in our jurisdiction do not know we represent them or understand the purpose of having a consulate office. Many assume it is simply for passports or for students and it is much more than that. Weve already begun implementing ways to connect the diaspora to our office so that we can mutually be abreast of what is going on at home and abroad as it pertains to our citizens. Prior to this post, Rolle, received his professional education from Bethune Cookman College and Johnson & Whales University, worked in the hospitality industry. As a 1998 recipient of the Caribbean Hotel Association scholarship, he was afforded opportunities to travel to Europe and North America as a Bahamian representative. He also was a stellar sales executive at Atlantis Harborside Resort, rounding off the highest sales volumes for 2003, coinciding with him heading the special operations department he implemented. Just before his appointment, Rolle was certified as a project manager and worked with The Ministry of Tourism Bahamas. SHELLYANNMAKESHISTORY Rihanna Sued Over Grandmothers Unpaid Funeral Expenses A Barbados furneral arrangement company is allegedly suing Rihanna over unpaid funeral bills. The pop star was said to have spared no expense in honoring her beloved Gran Gran Dolly (Clara Brathwaite) who died of cancer last year. They claim she only paid a quarter of the $150,000 bill and has refused to pay the balance. By Mike Bonts For the first time in school history, Miles College will offer golf as a sponsored sport the school recently announced. The Golden Bears will begin its inaugural season during the 2013-2014 school year. This new golf team is a great opportunity for Miles College to show yet another component of the culture, class and civility that we instill in our students. says President George T. French. It is a testament of the standard of excellence that we expect from our students academically and holistically. Being charged with the task of building the Golden Bear program is first year head coach Leonard Smoot. A 24-year retired veteran of United States Marine Corps (USMC), Smoot brings over 20 years of competitive golf experience. He has several top-10 finishes in competitive tournaments throughout Southeast Asia and Europe, including wins at the Wago Championship (Okinawa, Japan) as well as the Staff & Officer Championship (Awase, Japan). In 2002, Smoot became just the third African-American to make the United States Marines Golf Team. Since 2008, he also has served as a mentor/coach for the Professional Womens Golf Association while also previously serving in various roles for many regional golf tournaments, including the South Region Minority Supplier Development Council Golf Classic (SRMSDC), the Museum of Urban Art Golf Tournament, the Stillman College Scholarship Golf Tournament, and Alabama Leadership Foundation Golf Classic. Im very excited to be a part of establishing the golf program at Miles College. Adding golf provides a distinguished opportunity for the institution to have a positive impact on the lives of young adults and potentially open doors for them that may not have, otherwise, been available, says Smoot, who has also been a competitive boxer for over 30 years, including competing as a member of the USMC boxing team, and serving as a boxing coach. The Miles College golf team will take part in non-competitive events during the fall semester, beginning with the National Black College Hall of Fame Golf Invitational, September 27th-29th in Atlanta, GA. The Golden Bears season will officially begin in spring 2014. The motto for our golf team this season will be P.M.A., which stands for Positive Mental Attitude. What this means is that regardless of the situation, we want our student-athletes to have a positive mental attitude as well as the will to win, whether its on the golf course, in the classroom, or just functioning in society, Smoot stated. Coach Smoot states that he has already successfully recruited four players, two from Atlanta, GA and two from Kimberly, AL, that are set to enroll as freshmen this fall and will look to add more golfers to the team prior to the start of the upcoming season. My goal is to find good kids that want to receive a quality education. We want to develop a successful golf program that can compete for SIAC Championships as well as NCAA Division II Championships, says Smoot. For inquiries about the Miles College golf program, contact Head Coach Leonard Smoot by email at lsmoot@miles.edu or by phone at 205-929-1617.
