MAN ARRESTED IN FRIDAY THE 13TH MURDER Jacksonville cops continue search for Dollar General and bank robbers while six plead guilty in Brunswick By Frances Bradley, The Florida Star JACKSONVILLEThe Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH, prounounced ah-sah-lah) will hold its 98thAnnual Conference in Jacksonville, Florida at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverwalk October 2-6, 2013. Organizers expect close to 1,000 to attend in spite of the call for a boycott of Florida and repeal of the state's Stand Your Ground law following the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. For 98 years, ASALHs annual conference has drawn attendees from all over the U.S. and international destinations. The meeting features presentations of scholarly papers, panel discussions, and round tables about matters affecting African American life in the United States as defined by the annual Black History month theme. Conference plenary sessions are free and open to the public. African American heritage tours of Kingsley Plantation, American Beach, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine are also available for purchase by the public. Distinguished guest speakers include Director of the National African Art Museum and Jacksonville native Dr. Johnnetta B. Cole, daughter of Medgar Evers, Ms. Reena Evers, renown poet and author Sonia Sanchez, sister of slain 16th Street bombing little girl Denise McNair, Ms. Lisa McNair, Director of the Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad and many more. After George Zimmerman was acquitted of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, ASALH members were among the voices in support of boycotting Florida. With barely three months before the opening session, the executive council met to discuss the pros and cons of moving the meeting to another state. ASALH's national president Daryl Michael Scott had these comments after the council voted to keep the meeting in Jacksonville. "For nearly a century, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) has sought to empower people through knowledge, and recent events make it necessary for us to rededicate ourselves to our founding purpose....Ž "As for ASALH, we will go to Florida in early October precisely because our local branches and members have asked us to come and bring knowledge to bear on the problems confronting their community and the nation. This is the right thing for us." Scott has announced the creation of an empowerment project to update election laws and state histories on efforts to disfranchise Black people, which will be presented in Jacksonville.

Conference of African-American Historians and Scholars Will Convene in FloridaDuring an end-of-summer celebration for JaxParks Summer Night Lights (SNL) initiative on Wednesday evening, Mayor Alvin Brown recognized attorney Wayne Hogan of the Terrell Hogan Law Firm for his substantial financial commitment to the youth anticrime, anti-violence initiative that operates in select parks each summer. Brown then joined Hogan in issuing a challenge to others. We work very hard to invest in the next generation through quality programs,Ž Mayor Brown said. We also are stronger when we work together. So it is my hope that Waynes commitment will serve as an inspiration to others in the community.Ž As an agency partner in the SNL initiative, Sheriff John Rutherford also commended Hogans efforts. As a long standing partner in public safety, I would like to thank Wayne Hogan for stepping up and personally ensuring that this important crime prevention program occurred this past summer,Ž Rutherford said. Because these SNL programs work, and because they have proven effective, I am sure more businesses and civic groups will support them, so we can help even more kids next year,Ž Hogan said. As part of a larger $200,000 commitment made during Jacksonvilles 2012 Economic Summit, Hogan donated $35,000 to SNL 2013, allowing JaxParks to offer several new teenbased programs aimed at providing career experiences, team-building activities, dance and mentoring.

Approximately 500 youth attended those programs. This is the fourth year for SNL. The initiative, geared towards youth ages 13 through 21, operates at select parks for eight weeks on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. to midnight. All activities are free. This years SNL hosted six locations: Clanzel T. Brown, Grand Park, Robert F. Kennedy, Emmett Reed, Woodland Acres and McGirts Creek.

Moments later, the officer fired six more rounds and p aused again before firing the last two shots.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2013THESTARPAGE 3 ITS LITTLE MEECHIELil Meechie was walking along the railroad tracks across US 1 when suddenly he got his foot caught under one of the railroad ties. He tried to get it out, but it was really stuck. As he struggled to free his foot, he heard a noise and turned around. To his horror, he saw a train coming.

He prayed again, God, please get my foot out and Ill stop cussing AND being bad!Ž Still nothing, his foot was wedged tight. The train was just seconds away! Lil Meechie struggled frantically as the trains horn blared! He tried his plea one more time, God, please, if you get my foot out of the tracks, Ill quit being bad, Ill stop cussing, AND Ill stop trying to look up Tashas dress on Sundays,Ž ...but, just as the train was about to hit Dementrious, his foot broke free and he fell backwards, the train narrowly missing him.

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS The Gantt ReportBy Lucius Gantt I began my major media career in 1968 as a television writer at WSB-TV in Atlanta Georgia. At that time, the riots, mayhem and civil disturbances of the late 1960s and early 1970s encouraged every big city newspaper, radio and television station that was accused of not having Black reporters covering events that took place in Black neighborhoods to go out and hire one or two African Americans. We didnt need to have media experience or communications education. The number one skill emerging Black journalists needed to have was the ability to read! Most of your heroes like the late CBS icon Ed Bradley, Washington, D.C.s Jim Vance and many others were mere school teachers when they were hired as broadcasters. Those of us that were first hired risked our careers and, perhaps in some instances, our lives, as we protested and spoke out for increased hiring of Blacks and other minorities. But oh what a difference a day and some years make! Today, many of us in Black communities dont recognize the dark skinned anchors and reporters with highly visible jobs in broadcast and print media. They dont live in our communities, they dont shop in our communities or patronize businesses in our communities and they dont embrace our communities. I didnt go to the recent National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) convention in Orlando, Florida but if it was like other NABJ conventions that I have attended before most of the attendees will tell you they got their low level or mid-level media jobs because they are great journalists and not because of their race and ethnicity. Stop laughing! Even if some writers and reporters dont really know why they were hired, The Gantt Report says one thing is crystal clear, the white people that are hiring todays ethnic journalists know exactly who they are hiring! New journalists are pre-screened and screened some more. Media employers know the backgrounds, the educations, the memberships, the affiliations, the credit records, the arrest records and family data of every worker hired. Now, that brings us to another issue of dark skinned people attacking each other. This week news is about comments made by CNN news host Don Lemon who sort of says that saggy pants, use of the N-word, lack of educations, and poor parenting has a lot to do with condition of the masses of African Americans. Lemon is not the first to suggest such explanations. His view is similar to views expressed by Bill Cosby and others. The Bible says you should love God and love your neighbors. The expressions of disdain regarding Black people does not indicate that some of these Blacks love their Black neighbors. Instead, it appears that comments that parrot Fox News host Bill OReilly and other conservatives show brain damage, not wisdom. Black people didnt create the N-word, give prisoners jail pants that sagged because they dont fit, or assign Black children to attend substandard schools. And there is no worse example in world history of poor, bad and devilish parenting than the type of parents white slave maters were that disrespected, disowned, beat, killed and sold their own offspring to other slave masters that would beat the children some more! When people like Don Lemon hate the way some Black people are it indicates to me that they hate themselves. Instead of criticizing African Americans in the manner that our exploiters want us to be criticized, Don Lemon and those that agree with him should ask themselves on question. Who taught you to hate yourself? (Buy Gantt's latest book "Beast Too: Dead Man Writing" at any major bookstore and contact Lucius at www.allworldconsultants.net)

PAGE 4THE STARSEPTEMBER 21, 2013 Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks Sandy Neal Photojournalist The Public Library in Downtown Jacksonville was the host for the documentary film On the Couch with Dr. Kaye,Ž she is the founder of Reclaim Global Inc., a non-profit organization to put an end to childhood sexual abuse. Dr. Kaye M. Smith is an advocate and God fearing woman that have worked with victims of sexual abuse for many years. She works with men, woman and children of all ages, races, social status, cultures and religions. The Red Carpet event for this powerful documentary was filled with stories of horror, pain and sadness but there was also laughter, smiles and even a rap song entitled Reclaiming the InnocentŽ written and performed by Pastor Anthony Moore aka Mo Bigga whom is also a Reclaimer, he had the entire room on their feet, pumping their fist to the powerful words and most awesome beat including Dr. Kaye Smith. Dr. Kaye has worked tirelessly to Break The Silence on this quiet epidemic that has crept into our neighborhoods, homes and into our childrens bedrooms at night disguised as fathers, grandfathers, uncles, neighbors, friends, aunts and cousins just to name a few. Dr. Kaye has counseled victims as well as perpetrators and has been instrumental in putting them in jails where they belong. She has taught the hundreds of victims that she has counseled to be ReclaimersŽ she calls them that because she has taught them they did nothing wrong, to reclaim their lives and most importantly to speak out against a most horrific crime against our young people, many whom cannot speak for themselves. Reclaim Global is a safe haven for victims of childhood sexual abuse where they can speak candidly about what happened to them and their perpetrators without judgment and fear of retaliation. When I met Dr. Kaye I was presently surprised at how small she was to have such a big voice and get so many people to rally behind her for this cause that she is so passionate about. The On the Couch with Dr. KayeŽ documentary film speaks on the stigma placed against the victims by their families and friends whom when they told that this vile and evil act was forced upon them either looked the other way, was told that they were lying or simply that they made it up. Dr. Kaye is working feverishly to change the way our country looks at childhood sexual abuse and to shed light on what is going on in our childrens bedrooms long after most of us have gone to sleep. Dr. Kaye feels the victims of these horrific acts are often ousted, talked about and condemned in our society and she is teaching one victim at a time to Stand Up and Speak Out and to keep telling someone until someone listens. Some perpetrators are getting away with the crimes because they have threatened and scared the victim into secrecy for so long that the statute of limitations has run out such as in the case of Shannon Hodges. Shannon, whom works alongside Dr. Kaye as her Executive Administrative Assistant, her perpetrator was her own father. Shannon did not find out until adulthood that her younger sister was also being molested because in almost all cases of child sexual abuse the perpetrator isolates his victims and forces them to keep his dirty secret. In the documentary his face and name is shown. Reclaim Global, Inc. is a non-profit organization that needs donations from the public to continue to fight the battle against this horrific crime. Reclaim Global along with all its supporters want to bring safety back to our neighborhoods and back into our homes that our little ones can be safe against these crimes against humanity and to give a voice to our children whom cannot speak out for themselves. On the Couch with Dr. Kaye was produced by Darnell Anderson and Anthony Moore. Music Scoring by Marco (Young Rippa) Williams. Reclaim Global accepts donations on their website at www.reclaimglobal.org or you can mail it to: Reclaim Global, Inc. P.O. Box 23605 Jacksonville, FL 32241-3605 Dr. Kaye is a wife and mother of two.

This Nation can no longer be quiet about sexual abuse against our children we are here to protect them and give them a safe environment. Please Stand Up for a child and Speak Out against Childhood Sexual Abuse.

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 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 investigation is still ongoing.

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.

It was determined it was the victims iPad. 25-year-old Christopher Deering was standing in front of a nearby apartment wearing the victims monogrammed T-shirt with the victims name "Larry" embroidered on the front and also wearing his Pajama bottoms, that were stolen. The T-shirt was custom made for the victims personal use. Both suspects were arrested for arson, burglary, and dealing in stolen property and booked into jail. Floyd Deering

LOCAL SEPTEMBER 21, 2013THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida SAVING OUR YOUTHŽRepresentatives Mia Jones, Reggie Fullwood and Senator Audrey Gibson hosted a Community meeting Saving our YouthŽ Civil Citations: In and Out of School on Thursday, September 12, 2013. The event held at FSCJs Downtown Campus Auditorium was moderated by former State Representative and current CEO of Volunteers in Medicine, Mike Weinstein with panel participants; Superintendent Dr. Nikolai Vitti, State Attorney Angela Corey, David Utter-Southern Poverty Law Center, Lawrence Hills-Teen & Truancy Court Program, Rob Mason-Office of Public Defender, Chief David Coffman-Duval County Public Schools Police, Chief Michael Edwards-JSO, and Attorney Rhonda Peoples-Waters, P.A. The event was designed to call attention to the use of civil citations for first-time youthful offenders. The process, which statistics show reduces recidivism, allows youth who commit first-time, non-violent misdemeanors, to receive intervention services including family counseling, and other wrap around services. Youth who successfully complete the required sanctions leave the program without an arrest record which often impedes military, educational and employment opportunities. In the upcoming 2014 Legislative Session, both Jones and Gibson plan to file separate legislation relating to the use of civil citations.

PAGE8 THESTAR SEPTEMBER21, 2013 DR. JOHNPERRYIII: The Man, Pastor and Community LeaderŽ FEDERAL PROSECUTIONS FOCUSING ON GUN, DRUG AND VIOLENT CRIME IN BRUNSWICK, GA AREA NET SIX GUILTY PLEASCortez Arbery, 25, of Brunswick, pled guilty earlier this month before Chief United States District Court Judge Lisa Godbey Wood to being a felon in possession of a firearm. If Arbery is determined to be an armed career criminal,Ž he faces a minimum of 15 years in federal prison. During the guilty plea hearing, the evidence showed that Arbery possessed a stolen .38 caliber pistol after having been previously convicted of three felony drug offenses. Arberys guilty plea was the latest in a series of federal prosecutions focusing on gun, drug and violent crime in the Brunswick, Georgia area. Five others previously pled guilty in federal court for their role in weapons and drug offenses: Gromyko Green, 33, pled guilty to possessing a sawed-off shotgun and cocaine; John Wesley Boone, 27, pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm; Calvin Grovener, 24, pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm; Patrick Tenney, 23, pled guilty to receiving a firearms while under indictment; and, Reginald Beckham, 19, pled guilty to trafficking crack cocaine. The sentencings of each of the six defendants will take place after the United States Probation Office conducts pre-sentence investigations. United States Attorney Edward J. Tarver said, The number one priority of the United States Attorneys Office is the protection of the citizens of the Southern District. Those who commit violent offenses in the Brunswick area by trafficking in guns, drugs and the fear of others can expect to have their operations relocated to a federal prison cell.Ž All six cases were investigated by the Glynn/Brunswick Violent Crime Task Force, which consists of agents and officers from the ATF, the FBI, the Glynn County Police Department, the Brunswick Police Department, the Glynn County Sheriffs Office, and the Georgia State Probation Office. The Task Force was formed in December 2012 to combat growing gun violence in Glynn County. Thus far, over 53 guns have been seized. Investigations are ongoing and further federal prosecutions are expected. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Charlie Bourne and Shane Mayes prosecuted the cases on behalf of the United States. Last week, Connie Patrick, Director of FLETC, presented a $500 check to Chief Tobe Green for the Brunswick Police Department K9 program. The money was collected by FLETC staff members. The Brunswick Police Department expressed thanks to them for their contribution to help restart their K9 program. FLETCDonation To Help Reestablish BDPK9 Unit JURY SELECTION BEGINS IN BRUNSWICK MASS MURDER CASENearly four years after what is considered Georgias largest mass killing in recent memory, it appears that the death penalty murder trial is finally getting underway to determine the fate of the accused, Guy Heinze Jr. Back in 2009, police responded to a gruesome scene at Good Hope Mobile Home Park after Heinze claimed his entire family had been beaten to death. The victims were Guy Heinze Sr., 45; his close friend Russell RustyŽ D. Toler Sr., 44; Tolers children, Russell Toler Jr., 20, Chrissy Toler, 22, and Michelle Toler, 15; Rusty Tolers sister Brenda Gail Falagan, 49; and Chrissy Tolers boyfriend, Joseph L. West Jr., 30 and Chrissy Tolers 3 year-old son Byron Jimerson. Michael was still alive when police arrived but succumbed to injuries a day later making Byron the sole survivor of the massacre. Now 7, the boy recovered from a severe head injury and has since resided with his paternal grandmother. Now the quest is on to select jurors in a case which made international headlines. 450 potential jurors were summonsed on Monday with only 256 appearing. It is hoped that the number can be narrowed to 50. If they fail to qualify after individual interviews, then another group of 450 potential jurors will be summonsed. Of the 256 who responded to their summonses, there are at least 15 panels of 14 to 16 potential jurors. The panels came to court at 9am and 2pm, respectively. They were advised on the trial procedures and advised that in the event they find the suspect guilty, three possible sentences can be delivered life with the possibility of parole, life without parole and death. Heinz trial is set to begin in October.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9 Suns Win 2013 Southern League Promo Trophy JACKSONVILLE JAGUARSHIGHLIGHTS By FREDWITT&MIKE BONTS Jaguars starting QB Blaine Gabbert missed Sunday's game at Oakland due to a cut on his throwing hand sustained in the 28-2 loss to Kansas City at EverBank Field. Gabbert needed 15 stitches to close the laceration on his right hand, the result of hitting a Chiefs facemask. Backup Chad Henne will start against the Raiders. "It's got to heal, and we need to keep it clean," said Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley. "The big concern would be with the amount of stitches, that it could re-open and then the chance of infection occurring. We are going to handle that right. Hopefully we get him back next week or after the Seattle game." The Jaguars opener was the first time an NFL team has scored exactly two points in a game since Dec. 12, 1993, when the Cincinnati Bengals lost to the New England Patriots, 7-2. It was also the first regular season game under Bradley. Bradley spent four seasons as defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks before joining the Jaguars. Kansas City held a 291-178 advantage in total net yards. The Jaguars advanced past Kansas City's 36-yard line only once in four quarters. In the next game Florida State kicker Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals to lead the Oakland to a 19-9 home victory over the winless Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Penalties killed any chance of consistency on offense against the Raiders and kept the Jaguars defense on the field for several plays longer than necessary. Penalties were the big issue for us. I believe there were eleven total including false starts, hands to the face and special team penalties,Ž said first year head coach Gus Bradley. We had two that occurred on fourth down that extended the drives, we had a personal foul, unnecessary roughness on a down that would have been a third and twelve. Instead it gave them a first down. All in all the penalties contributed to thirteen points. We just need to clean those things up.Ž The Jaguars had 249 yards of total offense and just 34 on the ground as the Raiders won for the first time this season. Jaguars Running back Maurice Jones-Drew did not play after suffering a left ankle injury in the first half. Obviously weve got to find ways to get better. Were given the opportunity to have another week and we're going to do what we can to turn this around and have a good week this weekend,Ž said Jacksonville veteran center Brad Meester.The Jacksonville Suns are the second annual winner of the Southern League Promotional Trophy for the 2013 season, announced by the league office.
