According to the Sheriff and State Attorney Angela Corey, the Grand Park gang "ran the neighborhood like terrorists," until neighbors said they had enough. Police have been trying to dismantle the gang since 2007, but the investigation really picked up in the past 18 months. The gang, at its peak, had 43 members between the ages of 15 and 32 and primarily worked out of Northwest Jacksonville. "These are the poster children of the deadly, no-snitch attitude," said Rutherford. Earlier this month, six were arrested, prosecuted and sentenced on charges including 77 felonies and 65 misdemeanors. Community members in Grand Park are relieved and hope this means their streets will be a little safer, It was an unstated fear, especially when you went into certain parts of Grand Park. One of the residents visited The Florida Stars office for the past few weeks, demanding that it publish the fact that these people are off the streets. Authorities confiscated 13 firearms and a lot of drugs. The gang members terrorized the neighbors because they were conducting an illegal and very dangerous crime enterprise with guns, drugs and everything else. These were people who were terrorizing the neighborhood because they were conducting an illegal and very dangerous crime enterprise with guns, drugs and everything else. They were all arrested under the RICO law. The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, or RICO statute, is a piece of United States federal legislation dedicated to breaking up organized crime. Under the statute, racketeering is legal terminology for the act or threat of murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical.Ž Igqtig"\koogtocp"Ycpvu &522.222"hqt"mknnkpi"Vtc{xqp" Pgy"Dknn"Hkngf"d{"Hnqtkfc Uvcvg"Ugpcvqt"Ejtku"Uokvj kp"cp"Ghhqtv"vq"Jcnv"UwejHnqtkfc"Uvcvg"Ugpcvqt"("Fgoqetcvke"Ngcfgt."Ejtku Uokv hLast week, Florida State Senator Chris Smith appeared on the Florida Stars radio show, Impact, and announced that he would be presenting a bill to prevent such cases as the murder of Trayvon Martin even when the person doing the shooting, like Zimmerman, is the son of a retired Florida judge and know well how to work laws of the state in their favor. The new bill would restrict neighborhood crime watch members, among other revisions to Florida's controversial 'Stand Your Ground' law, in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal. Zimmerman claimed to be acting as a neighborhood watch volunteer in his Sanford, Fla. community when he reportedly pursued and fatally shot unarmed Miami teen Trayvon Martin. The state's 'Stand Your Ground' law prevented police from arresting Zimmerman for nearly two months, and jury instructions at his trial also included language from 'Stand Your Ground.' Smith's self-defense bill, filed Monday, requires local sheriffs to issue "reasonable" guidelines to neighborhood crime watch programs, specifying that participants are prohibited from pursuing and confronting suspects. The bill also specifies that immunity is not available to aggressors; outlines police's duty to investigate use of force cases when a person claims self-defense; clarifies that justifiable use of deadly force is allowed only when a threat is imminent, and when a person cannot safely avoid the danger before resorting to the use of deadly force; and requires the state to track cases in which self-defense is claimed.

In less than a month, Williams has helped by getting more than a thousand signatures. He truly believes in the importance of libraries. Yknn"Gnnku"Yknnkcou"cpf Oc{qt"Cnxkp"Dtqyp0 Williams grew up in Brunswick, Georgia and after retiring from the U. S. Navy, decided to settle in Jacksonville. His knowledge and view that we must have libraries, stems from his grandmother, Ms. Clifford Trimmings, who worked for Dale Carnegie, who was once the richest man in America. He opened the first libraries in America with his monies and started a foundation. Carnegie said, no man should die rich.

His grndfathers birthday came the day before his birthday so his grandmother would always bake a cake for his grandpa and grandpa would always allow Little Meechie to blow out the candles. Little Meechie was, at this time, ten years old. He blew out his grandpas candle and proudly announced, Tomorrow I will be a man, so go buy some champagne.Ž His grandparents were surprise when they heard his statement, and advised him that he would be eleven years old, not 21.

EQOG"VQ"VJG"CWEVKQP URQWUGU"JCXG"C UKIPKHKECPV"DGPGHKVBy Brian Sewell Social Security Manager in Jacksonville, FLSocial Security can be an important financial asset for married couples when the time comes to apply for retirement benefits. In many cases, one spouse may have earned significantly more than the other, or have worked for a longer span of years. Or it could be that one spouse stayed home to do the work of raising the children or caring for elderly family members while the other focused on a career. Regardless of your situation, Social Security will look at all possibilities to make sure both spouses receive the maximum benefit possible. Even if you have not paid Social Security taxes, its likely youll be eligible to receive benefits on your spouses record. If you did work and pay into Social Security, we will check eligibility based on your work record and your spouses to see which amount is higher. You can apply for spouses benefits the same way that you apply for benefits on your own record. You can apply for reduced benefits as early as age 62, or for 100 percent of your full retirement benefits at your full retirement age. Ž You can find your full retirement age, based on your birth year, at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/ageincrease.htm. The benefit amount you can receive as a spouse, if you have reached your full retirement age, can be as much as one half of your spouses full benefit. If you opt for early retirement, your benefit may be as little as a third of your spouses full benefit amount. If your spouse has already reached full retirement age but continues to work, your spouse can apply for retirement benefits and request to have the payments suspended until as late as age 70. This would allow the worker to earn delayed retirement credits that will mean higher payments later, but would allow you to receive your spouses benefit. You can also apply for spouse benefits based on the earnings record of an exspouse or deceased spouse if you were married for at least 10 years. Spouses can consider a number of options and variables. We make it easier to navigate them. A good place to start is by visiting our benefits planner at www.socialsecurity.gov/planners. Take note of the Benefits As A SpouseŽ section. If you are ready to apply for benefits, the fastest, easiest, and most convenient way is to apply online! You can do so at www.socialsecurity.gov/applyonline. Whether you receive benefits on a spouses record or your own, rest assured we will make sure you get the highest benefit we can pay you.

An intense struggle occurred when McKenzie attempted to remove the officers weapon from his holster. He continued until the officer was able to get McKenzie to away long enough to pull out his service weapon and order McKenzie to the ground. At this point, McKenzie fled into a wooded area where the officer gave chase, however, he was bleeding profusely, had blurry vision from a cut above his left eye, and lost sight of McKenzie. Officers responded to the area but were unable to locate him. the officer is expected to make a full recovery. As police were searching for McKenzie, he turned himself in the next day. He admitted to doing some stupid things because he did not want to go to jail,Ž but denied ever hitting the officer. He stated that during the struggle, he may have had accidentally hit him. McKenzie was charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence, and depriving an officer means of protection Tony McKenzie Homicide Suspect Killed During Shootout with Police A homicide suspect was shot and killed during a shootout with police at a hotel. Law enforcement officers from three agencies were met with shotgun fire while searching for a murder suspect. The shooting occurred shortly after midnight at a hotel. The Fugitive/SWAT team, police officers, and US Marshals were trying to apprehend 27-yearold Henry Kiner III, who was wanted for a homicide. Police described the whole incident as an ambush.Ž Shortly after midnight, law enforcement approached a man inside a black pickup truck as he started to pull out of a hotel parking lot. As they approached the driver, who was later identified as 28-yearold Junior Fletcher, one of Kiners associates, they found themselves being shot at from above. Kiner came out from room #212 and was shooting at deputies and officers from the second floor of the hotel. Kiners gunfire was returned, and he died at the scene. No law enforcement officers were hit. An officer was transported to the hospital after injuring his arm. He was not shot and was treated and released. Daniel Forrest, who was staying in room #214 and was not involved in the incident, was shot by Kiner or law enforcement officers. He suffered a non life-threatening injury. No other injuries were reported. Police obtained a warrant for Kiners arrest for a homicide that occurred on August 11, 2013. Investigators said after that murder, Kiners mom stated that she remembered a conversation about two weeks ago where he told her, Im never going back to prison.Ž According to detectives, just last night, Kiner told Fletcher, This is the last time youre going to see me.Ž Kiner was released from prison August 2011 after serving a sentence for a 2006 armed robbery. Fletcher was arrested on unrelated charges for possession of narcotics. He was also released August 2011 from prison, where he had been incarcerated since the age of 16 for robbery. Homicide detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting and six officers have been placed on administrative assignment, which is a part of standard procedure for the use of excessive force.

The victim stated he returned to his home around 11:30 a.m. from being gone for about 6 hours and discovered his residence had been burglarized. He pointed out a set of tire tracks in the grass which led from his front driveway to the back yard and back. All four burners on his stove were set on "HIGH" and smoke was seen burning on several napkins. The victim believed he got home just in time or his residence would have been on fire.

LOCAL AUGUST 31, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida Wayne Hogan Brings Distracted Driving Message to the CommunityOne text or call can wreck it all,Ž was the message Wayne Hogan conveyed to the Neighborhood Team Community Action organization on Monday night. Evelyn Coney, founder, invited him to give his Distracted Driving Presentation for the Workforce at its Gateway Mall meeting. Hogan discussed the dangers, consequences and science behind distracted driving. Despite our high-tech, multitasking society, its hard to do two things at once, and do them well. For example, when driving and talking on the phone, our brains actually switch between the two tasks. He pointed out that almost every driver these days has had the experience of missing an interstate exit while talking on a cell phone. Hogan admitted to the audience that he talked on the phone while driving in the past, but when he really dug into the facts, he stopped doing it and considers himself lucky that he didnt get into an accident. The only job we have when we are at the wheel of a car is to drive,Ž Hogan said. Its not to sell real estate, catch up with your relative or call in an order.Ž One way to guard against the temptation to pick up the phone is to change your voicemail message to say, Im driving now, so I cant take your call. Please leave a message.Ž This not only reminds the driver, but also brings awareness to callers about the issue. He also delved into the legal consequences, civil liability and brand damage to a company when distracted driving accidents happen. There is not only the guilt of taking a life, but also the impact it could have on a companys reputation if an employee kills someone while driving distracted.Ž Terrell Hogan offers this complimentary presentation to local businesses, non-profit and church groups as a public service. The firms Distracted Driving Presentation for the Workforce was inspired by the Casey Feldman Foundation and EndDD.org. in honor of the 21 year-old who was killed after a distracted driver struck her as she crossed the street. Caseys parents created the End Distracted Driving educational presentation for teen drivers and shared it with attorneys nationwide to take into their local schools. They have reached almost 100,000 students since the program began. Terrell Hogan continues to make this presentation to area high schools.

AUGUST31, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9Brande once honed his notorious offspeed repertoire for the Hurricanes Late Eagles TD spoils Jaguars chance at first preseason win; Henne shines By CAMRON GHORNI FLORIDA SORTS WIRE There was Red Berry, the legendary pitching coach and even better story-teller, working his charm to the delight of the crowd. There were battery mates Steve Lerner and Pat Callahan sharing a tale about The WizardŽ over in the corner. And, of course, there was public address announcer Jay Rokeach … whose voice sounded as amplified as it did over the parks meager sound system way back then.On a balmy late-summer afternoon in the team meeting room at Mark Light Field, the same sanctuary where Luis Brande once honed his notorious offspeed repertoire, all of the usual suspects were present and accounted for. But the biggest smile of them all … no small task in a room full of Hurricane baseball pioneers, make no mistake about it belonged to Luis. One of the former righthanders many stories focused on a team trip to Nicaragua after a devastating earthquake. The baseball stadium in Esteli had chicken wire all over the place, and had wooden horse stables as our dugout. It was a cowboy town with six shooters, holsters, and horses!Ž Lerner, listening to the story from afar, burst out laughing in confirmation. You should have seen it! It was unbelievable!Ž And so went the afternoon, another magical one to add to The Lights lengthy history of similarly emotional days. With so many smiles circulating amongst the group, one of the reunions driving motives … Luis continued battle with ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrigs Disease … was overshadowed by the encompassing familiarity and warmth of the ballpark. Luis, a two-year reliever for the Hurricanes from 197476, is no longer able to verbally communicate due to the effects of the disease. With some assistance from Jay-Ro, however, Luis shared more stories … about the addictive iced tea in the dugout, recalling a trip to the Bahamas where the opposing catcher threw laser beamsŽ behind his back (which Luis imitated), and who could forget the four innings of no-hit baseball he threw in relief at a tournament hosted by Mississippi State? The crowd, which included teammates and coaches from Luis two years at DadeSouth, was beaming. Dr. Oscar Loret De Mola, formerly a Hurricane catcher and now a local pediatric gastroenterologist, was taken aback by the portrait of his former teammate … delivering a vicious hook to some pitiable opponent plastered to the wall. All attendees signed the poster, each adding a personalized touch. He is such a great friend,Ž the doctor said, smiling. And, man, what a curveball.Ž DWIGHT EUBANKS AND ATLANTA CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL LAUNCH INTERNATIONAL FASHION FORUM (Atlanta, Georgia) International man of fashion, entrepreneur, stylist extraordinaire and former cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Dwight Eubanks is teaming up with the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association (ACCBA) in a venture poised to take the region to the international arena through the fashion industry. A media mixer and launch of the Atlanta Caribbean International Fashion Forum was held Friday, August 23rd, 2013 at Eubanks famed Purple Door Salon in Atlanta, Georgia. The by invitation only event was streamed lived by Gil Vision and hosted by The Stars Arthia Nixon, from The Bahmas and Ulato Sam of Jamaica, who serve as ACCBApublicist and presidents assistant respectively. We wanted to take Carnival to the next level and I truly feel this is it,Ž says ACCBA president and Antigua native, Patricia Henry. Dwight is certainly well known and respected in the industry on an international level. By coming to the individual islands, working with the service providers, and showcasing the region, it can open up doors for all involved on a tremendous level.Ž Photos by Jacob Wynn unless otherwise indicatedBy Mike Bonts FLORIDA SPORTS WIRE The Eagles' Chris Polk ran for a four yard score and the two point conversion with 2:12 to play as Philadelphia handed Jacksonville their third loss of the NFL preseason 31-24 before at 59,149 at EverBank Field. "I thought we flew around, special teams got a take away in the first half. The defense held up, but we have to start with better field position," said Jaguars first year coach Gus Bradley. Jacksonville forced three fumbles and ran for over 100 yards for the first time this preseason. With starting QB Blaine Gabbert out with a thumb injury, Chad Henne completed 11 of his 18 passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns. On the opening Saturday night, Henne found wide receiver Justin Blackmon in the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown to complete a 12-play 90-yard drive. Philadelphia QB Michael Vick was 15 of 23 for 184 yards. He threw a TD pass to former Florida Gators receiver Riley Cooper. Vick also rushed for 53 yards. Jaguars running back Jordan Todman broke off a 63-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and led all running backs with 105 yards on eight attempts. Jacksonville scored on its opening drive of the game for the second consecutive week, but could not hang on to a 17-16 halftime lead. QB Matt Scott relieved Henne in the third quarter, passing for 52 yards on six completions. Tight end Allen Reisner caught an eight-yard touchdown pass from Henne. Reisner has caught a touchdown pass in consecutive games. Thirteen different Jaguars caught a pass as Blackmon led the team for the second straight game with four receptions for 50 yards. Wide receiver Cecil Shorts III caught one pass for 20 yards in his preseason debut after being sidelined for the first two games with an injury. Versatile rookie Denard Robinson continues to help the offense drive the ball, running for 33 yards on seven carries. The Jaguars defense forced three fumbles and two turnovers, including cornerback Dwayne Gratzs interception of Vick in the second quarter, his second interception of the preseason. Defensive tackle Roy Miller and defensive end Andre Branch put pressure on the quarterback, registering their first sacks of the preseason. Linebacker Paul Posluszny led the team with eight solo tackles. Rookie safety Johnathan Cyprien playing in his second preseason game recorded four solo tackles and one special teams tackle. Alex Henry kicked three field goals for Philadelphia. The Eagles improved to 2-1 in the preseason. JAGUARS MAKE ROSTER MOVESThe Jaguars made 13 roster moves on Sunday to reduce their roster to 75 players. Seventh-year long snapper Jeremy Cain was released. Cornerback Jeremy Harris, 2013 seventh-round pick, was placed on injured reserve with a back injury. Second-year guard Mark Asper was waived along with two first-year pros, punter Ken Parrish and cornerback Lionel Smith. There were also eight rookies waived including linebacker Maalik Bomar, linebacker Jeremiah Green, defensive end J.D. Griggs, defensive end Paul Hazel, long snapper Luke Ingram, wide receiver Jamal Miles, safety Ray Polk and offensive tackle Roderick Tomlin. NFL teams had to reduce their roster to the league limit of 75 players by Tuesday at 4 p.m. EDT. NEW MENU ITEMS COMING TO CLUB AT EVERBANK FIELD This coming season two revamped Sea Best concessions, renamed Sea Best Oasis, will be located within the Club section and make their debut at the Jaguars home game on Sept. 8. The upgraded Sea Best Oasis concessions feature several new menu items, giving fans seafood meals as part of their enhanced game day experience. The new additions include Cajun Mahi Mahi Sliders, Camarones Cocktail, and BBQ Shrimp Pizza. EYES ON SEPTEMBER 8TH: The Jacksonville Jaguars kick off the regular season at home at EverBank Field against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 1 pm. The Jaguars hold the third-best winning percentage (.611) in the NFL with an 11-7 record on Kickoff Weekend. From 19962001, the Jaguars won six-straight Kickoff Weekend games averaging 27.5 points per game and defeating opponents by an average of 15.5 points.

According to the Sheriff and State Attorney Angela Corey, the Grand Park gang "ran the neighborhood like terrorists," until neighbors said they had enough. Police have been trying to dismantle the gang since 2007, but the investigation really picked up in the past 18 months. The gang, at its peak, had 43 members between the ages of 15 and 32 and primarily worked out of Northwest Jacksonville. "These are the poster children of the deadly, no-snitch attitude," said Rutherford. Earlier this month, six were arrested, prosecuted and sentenced on charges including 77 felonies and 65 misdemeanors. Community members in Grand Park are relieved and hope this means their streets will be a little safer, It was an unstated fear, especially when you went into certain parts of Grand Park. One of the residents visited The Florida Stars office for the past few weeks, demanding that it publish the fact that these people are off the streets. Authorities confiscated 13 firearms and a lot of drugs. The gang members terrorized the neighbors because they were conducting an illegal and very dangerous crime enterprise with guns, drugs and everything else. These were people who were terrorizing the neighborhood because they were conducting an illegal and very dangerous crime enterprise with guns, drugs and everything else. They were all arrested under the RICO law. The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, or RICO statute, is a piece of United States federal legislation dedicated to breaking up organized crime. Under the statute, racketeering is legal terminology for the act or threat of murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical.

The new bill would restrict neighborhood crime watch members, among other revisions to Florida's controversial 'Stand Your Ground' law, in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal. Zimmerman claimed to be acting as a neighborhood watch volunteer in his Sanford, Fla. community when he reportedly pursued and fatally shot unarmed Miami teen Trayvon Martin. The state's 'Stand Your Ground' law prevented police from arresting Zimmerman for nearly two months, and jury instructions at his trial also included language from 'Stand Your Ground.' Smith's self-defense bill, filed Monday, requires local sheriffs to issue "reasonable" guidelines to neighborhood crime watch programs, specifying that participants are prohibited from pursuing and confronting suspects. The bill also specifies that immunity is not available to aggressors; outlines police's duty to investigate use of force cases when a person claims self-defense; clarifies that justifiable use of deadly force is allowed only when a threat is imminent, and when a person cannot safely avoid the danger before resorting to the use of deadly force; and requires the state to track cases in which self-defense is claimed.

Many, as they visit Jacksonville Public Libraries, wonder why this man is trying so hard to get them to sign a petition to save our libraries. In less than a month, Williams has helped by getting more than a thousand signatures. He truly believes in the importance of libraries. Yknn"Gnnku"Yknnkcou"cpf Oc{qt"Cnxkp"Dtqyp0 Williams grew up in Brunswick, Georgia and after retiring from the U. S. Navy, decided to settle in Jacksonville. His knowledge and view that we must have libraries, stems from his grandmother, Ms. Clifford Trimmings, who worked for Dale Carnegie, who was once the richest man in America. He opened the first libraries in America with his monies and started a foundation. Carnegie said, no man should die rich.

His grndfathers birthday came the day before his birthday so his grandmother would always bake a cake for his grandpa and grandpa would always allow Little Meechie to blow out the candles. Little Meechie was, at this time, ten years old. He blew out his grandpas candle and proudly announced, Tomorrow I will be a man, so go buy some champagne. His grandparents were surprise when they heard his statement, and advised him that he would be eleven years old, not 21. Little Meechie said then you have not been counting. Every year, I blow out birthday candles on two cakes, and I count the years. I just blew out Grandpas birthday cake and that makes me 20. Tomorrow, when I blow out my candles, I will be 21 and grown.

EQOG"VQ"VJG"CWEVKQP URQWUGU"JCXG"C UKIPKHKECPV"DGPGHKVBy Brian Sewell Social Security Manager in Jacksonville, FLSocial Security can be an important financial asset for married couples when the time comes to apply for retirement benefits. In many cases, one spouse may have earned significantly more than the other, or have worked for a longer span of years. Or it could be that one spouse stayed home to do the work of raising the children or caring for elderly family members while the other focused on a career. Regardless of your situation, Social Security will look at all possibilities to make sure both spouses receive the maximum benefit possible. Even if you have not paid Social Security taxes, its likely youll be eligible to receive benefits on your spouses record. If you did work and pay into Social Security, we will check eligibility based on your work record and your spouses to see which amount is higher. You can apply for spouses benefits the same way that you apply for benefits on your own record. You can apply for reduced benefits as early as age 62, or for 100 percent of your full retirement benefits at your full retirement age. You can find your full retirement age, based on your birth year, at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/ageincrease.htm. The benefit amount you can receive as a spouse, if you have reached your full retirement age, can be as much as one half of your spouses full benefit. If you opt for early retirement, your benefit may be as little as a third of your spouses full benefit amount. If your spouse has already reached full retirement age but continues to work, your spouse can apply for retirement benefits and request to have the payments suspended until as late as age 70. This would allow the worker to earn delayed retirement credits that will mean higher payments later, but would allow you to receive your spouses benefit. You can also apply for spouse benefits based on the earnings record of an exspouse or deceased spouse if you were married for at least 10 years. Spouses can consider a number of options and variables. We make it easier to navigate them. A good place to start is by visiting our benefits planner at www.socialsecurity.gov/planners. Take note of the Benefits As A Spouse section. If you are ready to apply for benefits, the fastest, easiest, and most convenient way is to apply online! You can do so at www.socialsecurity.gov/applyonline. Whether you receive benefits on a spouses record or your own, rest assured we will make sure you get the highest benefit we can pay you.

Safety Man Punches Officer During Traffic Stop During a routine traffic stop, 36-year-old Tony Lee McKenzie struck an officer in the face several times causing him to fall down and become disoriented. An intense struggle occurred when McKenzie attempted to remove the officers weapon from his holster. He continued until the officer was able to get McKenzie to away long enough to pull out his service weapon and order McKenzie to the ground. At this point, McKenzie fled into a wooded area where the officer gave chase, however, he was bleeding profusely, had blurry vision from a cut above his left eye, and lost sight of McKenzie. Officers responded to the area but were unable to locate him. the officer is expected to make a full recovery. As police were searching for McKenzie, he turned himself in the next day. He admitted to doing some stupid things because he did not want to go to jail, but denied ever hitting the officer. He stated that during the struggle, he may have had accidentally hit him. McKenzie was charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence, and depriving an officer means of protection Tony McKenzie Homicide Suspect Killed During Shootout with Police A homicide suspect was shot and killed during a shootout with police at a hotel. Law enforcement officers from three agencies were met with shotgun fire while searching for a murder suspect. The shooting occurred shortly after midnight at a hotel. The Fugitive/SWAT team, police officers, and US Marshals were trying to apprehend 27-yearold Henry Kiner III, who was wanted for a homicide. Police described the whole incident as an ambush. Shortly after midnight, law enforcement approached a man inside a black pickup truck as he started to pull out of a hotel parking lot. As they approached the driver, who was later identified as 28-yearold Junior Fletcher, one of Kiners associates, they found themselves being shot at from above. Kiner came out from room #212 and was shooting at deputies and officers from the second floor of the hotel. Kiners gunfire was returned, and he died at the scene. No law enforcement officers were hit. An officer was transported to the hospital after injuring his arm. He was not shot and was treated and released. Daniel Forrest, who was staying in room #214 and was not involved in the incident, was shot by Kiner or law enforcement officers. He suffered a non life-threatening injury. No other injuries were reported. Police obtained a warrant for Kiners arrest for a homicide that occurred on August 11, 2013. Investigators said after that murder, Kiners mom stated that she remembered a conversation about two weeks ago where he told her, Im never going back to prison. According to detectives, just last night, Kiner told Fletcher, This is the last time youre going to see me. Kiner was released from prison August 2011 after serving a sentence for a 2006 armed robbery. Fletcher was arrested on unrelated charges for possession of narcotics. He was also released August 2011 from prison, where he had been incarcerated since the age of 16 for robbery.

Henry Kiner III Junior Fletcher iPhone Used to Track Down Suspects who Stole iPad At 11:35 a.m., police were dispatched to a home in reference to a burglary to a residence. The victim stated he returned to his home around 11:30 a.m. from being gone for about 6 hours and discovered his residence had been burglarized. He pointed out a set of tire tracks in the grass which led from his front driveway to the back yard and back. All four burners on his stove were set on "HIGH" and smoke was seen burning on several napkins. The victim believed he got home just in time or his residence would have been on fire. The napkins were located in the upper cabinet which was left open when he came in. The residence was ransacked. Every room had been entered by the unknown suspects. Computers, televisions, surround sound system, camera, clothing, towels and other items were found stolen. The victim was missing an iPad and had an application synced to his iPhone which showed the exact location of the iPad. The victim rode with officers to the exact address while tracking the iPad. Police observed suspect, 28-year-old Danyrell Floyd, sitting on the steps in front of an apartment with what appeared to be a tablet device in her lap. It was determined it was the victims iPad. 25-year-old Christopher Deering was standing in front of a nearby apartment wearing the victims monogrammed T-shirt with the victims name "Larry" embroidered on the front and also wearing his Pajama bottoms, that were stolen. The T-shirt was custom made for the victims personal use. Both suspects were arrested for arson, burglary, and dealing in stolen property and booked into jail. Floyd Deering

LOCAL AUGUST 31, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida Wayne Hogan Brings Distracted Driving Message to the CommunityOne text or call can wreck it all, was the message Wayne Hogan conveyed to the Neighborhood Team Community Action organization on Monday night. Evelyn Coney, founder, invited him to give his Distracted Driving Presentation for the Workforce at its Gateway Mall meeting. Hogan discussed the dangers, consequences and science behind distracted driving. Despite our high-tech, multitasking society, its hard to do two things at once, and do them well. For example, when driving and talking on the phone, our brains actually switch between the two tasks. He pointed out that almost every driver these days has had the experience of missing an interstate exit while talking on a cell phone. Hogan admitted to the audience that he talked on the phone while driving in the past, but when he really dug into the facts, he stopped doing it and considers himself lucky that he didnt get into an accident. The only job we have when we are at the wheel of a car is to drive, Hogan said. Its not to sell real estate, catch up with your relative or call in an order. One way to guard against the temptation to pick up the phone is to change your voicemail message to say, Im driving now, so I cant take your call. Please leave a message. This not only reminds the driver, but also brings awareness to callers about the issue. He also delved into the legal consequences, civil liability and brand damage to a company when distracted driving accidents happen. There is not only the guilt of taking a life, but also the impact it could have on a companys reputation if an employee kills someone while driving distracted. Terrell Hogan offers this complimentary presentation to local businesses, non-profit and church groups as a public service. The firms Distracted Driving Presentation for the Workforce was inspired by the Casey Feldman Foundation and EndDD.org. in honor of the 21 year-old who was killed after a distracted driver struck her as she crossed the street. Caseys parents created the End Distracted Driving educational presentation for teen drivers and shared it with attorneys nationwide to take into their local schools. They have reached almost 100,000 students since the program began. Terrell Hogan continues to make this presentation to area high schools.

Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. speaks and meets President Kennedy. Just 5o years later, on August 28th, 1963, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Washington for the greatest demonstration for jobs and freedom in the history of our nation. People from every corner of our country united for one momentous day, rallying to a shared message of civil liberty, civil rights, and economic freedom and opportunity for all. Saturday, August 24, 2013, Betty McKenzie of NAACP Branch Brunswick, Georgia and friends gathered to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington by convening on the National Mall.

AUGUST, 2013 THESTAR PAGEBrande once honed his notorious offspeed repertoire for the Hurricanes Late Eagles TD spoils Jaguars chance at first preseason win; Henne shinesBy CAMRON GHORNI FLORIDA SORTS WIRE There was Red Berry, the legendary pitching coach and even better story-teller, working his charm to the delight of the crowd. There were battery mates Steve Lerner and Pat Callahan sharing a tale about The Wizard over in the corner. And, of course, there was public address announcer Jay Rokeach whose voice sounded as amplified as it did over the parks meager sound system way back then.On a balmy late-summer afternoon in the team meeting room at Mark Light Field, the same sanctuary where Luis Brande once honed his notorious offspeed repertoire, all of the usual suspects were present and accounted for. But the biggest smile of them all no small task in a room full of Hurricane baseball pioneers, make no mistake about it belonged to Luis. One of the former righthanders many stories focused on a team trip to Nicaragua after a devastating earthquake. The baseball stadium in Esteli had chicken wire all over the place, and had wooden horse stables as our dugout. It was a cowboy town with six shooters, holsters, and horses! Lerner, listening to the story from afar, burst out laughing in confirmation. You should have seen it! It was unbelievable! And so went the afternoon, another magical one to add to The Lights lengthy history of similarly emotional days. With so many smiles circulating amongst the group, one of the reunions driving motives Luis continued battle with ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrigs Disease was overshadowed by the encompassing familiarity and warmth of the ballpark. Luis, a two-year reliever for the Hurricanes from 197476, is no longer able to verbally communicate due to the effects of the disease. With some assistance from Jay-Ro, however, Luis shared more stories about the addictive iced tea in the dugout, recalling a trip to the Bahamas where the opposing catcher threw laser beams behind his back (which Luis imitated), and who could forget the four innings of no-hit baseball he threw in relief at a tournament hosted by Mississippi State? The crowd, which included teammates and coaches from Luis two years at DadeSouth, was beaming. Dr. Oscar Loret De Mola, formerly a Hurricane catcher and now a local pediatric gastroenterologist, was taken aback by the portrait of his former teammate delivering a vicious hook to some pitiable opponent plastered to the wall. All attendees signed the poster, each adding a personalized touch. He is such a great friend, the doctor said, smiling. And, man, what a curveball. DWIGHT EUBANKS AND ATLANTA CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL LAUNCH INTERNATIONAL FASHION FORUM (Atlanta, Georgia) International man of fashion, entrepreneur, stylist extraordinaire and former cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Dwight Eubanks is teaming up with the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association (ACCBA) in a venture poised to take the region to the international arena through the fashion industry. A media mixer and launch of the Atlanta Caribbean International Fashion Forum was held Friday, August 23rd, 2013 at Eubanks famed Purple Door Salon in Atlanta, Georgia. The by invitation only event was streamed lived by Gil Vision and hosted by The Stars Arthia Nixon, from The Bahmas and Ulato Sam of Jamaica, who serve as ACCBApublicist and presidents assistant respectively. We wanted to take Carnival to the next level and I truly feel this is it, says ACCBA president and Antigua native, Patricia Henry. Dwight is certainly well known and respected in the industry on an international level. By coming to the individual islands, working with the service providers, and showcasing the region, it can open up doors for all involved on a tremendous level. Photos by Jacob Wynn unless otherwise indicatedBy Mike Bonts FLORIDA SPORTS WIRE The Eagles' Chris Polk ran for a four yard score and the two point conversion with 2:12 to play as Philadelphia handed Jacksonville their third loss of the NFL preseason 31-24 before at 59,149 at EverBank Field. "I thought we flew around, special teams got a take away in the first half. The defense held up, but we have to start with better field position," said Jaguars first year coach Gus Bradley. Jacksonville forced three fumbles and ran for over 100 yards for the first time this preseason. With starting QB Blaine Gabbert out with a thumb injury, Chad Henne completed 11 of his 18 passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns. On the opening Saturday night, Henne found wide receiver Justin Blackmon in the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown to complete a 12-play 90-yard drive. Philadelphia QB Michael Vick was 15 of 23 for 184 yards. He threw a TD pass to former Florida Gators receiver Riley Cooper. Vick also rushed for 53 yards. Jaguars running back Jordan Todman broke off a 63-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and led all running backs with 105 yards on eight attempts. Jacksonville scored on its opening drive of the game for the second consecutive week, but could not hang on to a 17-16 halftime lead. QB Matt Scott relieved Henne in the third quarter, passing for 52 yards on six completions. Tight end Allen Reisner caught an eight-yard touchdown pass from Henne. Reisner has caught a touchdown pass in consecutive games. Thirteen different Jaguars caught a pass as Blackmon led the team for the second straight game with four receptions for 50 yards. Wide receiver Cecil Shorts III caught one pass for 20 yards in his preseason debut after being sidelined for the first two games with an injury. Versatile rookie Denard Robinson continues to help the offense drive the ball, running for 33 yards on seven carries. The Jaguars defense forced three fumbles and two turnovers, including cornerback Dwayne Gratzs interception of Vick in the second quarter, his second interception of the preseason. Defensive tackle Roy Miller and defensive end Andre Branch put pressure on the quarterback, registering their first sacks of the preseason. Linebacker Paul Posluszny led the team with eight solo tackles. Rookie safety Johnathan Cyprien playing in his second preseason game recorded four solo tackles and one special teams tackle. Alex Henry kicked three field goals for Philadelphia. The Eagles improved to 2-1 in the preseason. JAGUARS MAKE ROSTER MOVESThe Jaguars made 13 roster moves on Sunday to reduce their roster to 75 players. Seventh-year long snapper Jeremy Cain was released. Cornerback Jeremy Harris, 2013 seventh-round pick, was placed on injured reserve with a back injury. Second-year guard Mark Asper was waived along with two first-year pros, punter Ken Parrish and cornerback Lionel Smith. There were also eight rookies waived including linebacker Maalik Bomar, linebacker Jeremiah Green, defensive end J.D. Griggs, defensive end Paul Hazel, long snapper Luke Ingram, wide receiver Jamal Miles, safety Ray Polk and offensive tackle Roderick Tomlin. NFL teams had to reduce their roster to the league limit of 75 players by Tuesday at 4 p.m. EDT. NEW MENU ITEMS COMING TO CLUB AT EVERBANK FIELD This coming season two revamped Sea Best concessions, renamed Sea Best Oasis, will be located within the Club section and make their debut at the Jaguars home game on Sept. 8. The upgraded Sea Best Oasis concessions feature several new menu items, giving fans seafood meals as part of their enhanced game day experience. The new additions include Cajun Mahi Mahi Sliders, Camarones Cocktail, and BBQ Shrimp Pizza. EYES ON SEPTEMBER 8TH: The Jacksonville Jaguars kick off the regular season at home at EverBank Field against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 1 pm. The Jaguars hold the third-best winning percentage (.611) in the NFL with an 11-7 record on Kickoff Weekend. From 19962001, the Jaguars won six-straight Kickoff Weekend games averaging 27.5 points per game and defeating opponents by an average of 15.5 points. Their largest victory on Kickoff Weekend came on Sept. 12, 1999, when the Jaguars defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 41-3, in what would eventually become the most successful season in franchise history (14-2 regular season record; lost in the AFC Championship).
