May 31, 2014 THESTAR PAGE 3 YOUTH Yale Scholarship Recipient Raised In Poverty And Crime Says He Never Wanted Pity Leonard Galmon grew up living a life tha t would lead many down a very bad path. Instead, he took the little that he had and focused on that as opposed to focusing on what he didnt have. His drive and determination earned him a scholarship at Yale. Galmon is a visual artist who will have his favorite piece displayed this spring at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. Within the one year he spent at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, he created his best piece. The message of the piece is simple: Stay out of trouble. The threedimensional painting displayed a young man in a gray hoodie who is looking back at the viewer with his shoulders hunched. His shadow is cast over a gun that is lying on the ground behind him. Galmon is the oldest of his mothers six children. She had him at the age of thirteen. His fathe r had been a drug dealer who was murdered while Galmon was only four years old. The family never had much, but the driven teen remembers love, support, and an art class that he loved. He wrote about this in an essay he submitted to Yale. He said that he always knew that there was someone that had it worse than he did, and he didnt wan t people to have pity for him. His uncle tried to take over a male role model position with Galmon, but he fell to societal pressures. He did, however, teach Galmon how to draw before he succumbed to his own demise. Galmon took an art course his sophomore year while attending the worst school in New Orleans. It was the start of his greatness. His very first painting was selected to be on display with the Contemporary Arts Center. He later switched schools and attende d Cohen College Prep. At this school, he was encouraged to apply to all of the fine institutions that he didnt think that he would get into. Yale wanted him and that is the school that he chose. He was one out of only 26 people to receive the Ron Brown scholarship. Leonard GalmonSNOOPS YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE PRODUCES 3 NFL PLAYERS IN 2014In the fall of 2005, West Coast rap giant Calvin Snoop Dogg Broadus took his love of sports and desire to provide an opportunity for inner-city youth to have an outle t opposed to the street life that almost snared his life. With his Snoop Youth Football League, a non-profit organization funded mostly by the rapper himself, uses football an d cheerleading to teach the values of teamwork, good sportsmanship, discipline, self-respect and stresses the importance of academics. Almost ten years later, Snoops Youth Football League is going strong and more importantly changing lives. Snoop Dogg has been able to bridge communities and cultures through the mutual love of sports and give a lot of kids positive reinforcemen t and valuable experiences that probably would not have happened without him and his league. Snoop has a good reason to stick out his chest with pride, as the NFL Rookie Class of 2014 features 3 alumni of his youth football league: DeAnthony Thomas, running back, who played his college ball at the University of Oregon, was picked up in the fourth-round of the 2014 NFL draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. Kam Jackson, cornerback, played at the University of California, signed as an undrafted free agent to theIndianapolis Colts. Greg Ducre, also a cornerback, was a student-athlete at the University of Washington, also signed as an undrafted free agent for the San Diego Chargers. They all got scooped up were very happy and very proud of these kids, Snoop said. In 2012, Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman became the first SYFL alum to make it to the NFL and according to TMZ Sports, Snoop is very excited about the future. I feel good abou t the guys that are coming out this year, the yea r after and the kids tha t are in the league righ t now, Snoop says We got kids all over the SYFL that have tha t spirit to go to the nex t level! Currently, Snoops league has between 1,500-1,700 players in the league and he reveals that he is aiming to implement a policy that will allow kids to play in the league for free if they maintain a 3.0 grade point average or better. The first thing that we preach is student athletes. Its a community of love, Snoop says Its more of a family than a football league. I think it is very commendable for Snoop to not only have started the league but to stay dedicated to it as it approaches almost a decade in existence. One can not dispute results! I think it is amazing that 4 young men from his league have made it to play professional sports, but the real success are the values and sense of community being instilled in these kids. Way to go Snoop !! Local JaxPAL Youth Graduate From JAXEX High Achievers ProgramJACKSONVILLE, FL May 27, 2014. Jacksonville Executive at Craig Airport (JAXEX) and the Police Athletic League (PAL) of Jacksonville are pleased to announce the graduation of the inaugural class of JAXEX High Achievers, a joint initiative designed to expose local youth to exciting career opportunities in aviation.

JAXEX High Achievers graduates received a certificate of completion and heard words of advice and congratulations from JAA Executive Director Steve Grossman and Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford. Students also took the opportunity to expound on their experience with the program, and how it has impacted future college and career p lans.

I encourage residents of all ages both young and old to get educated about how to make a plan and stay safe during a significant weather event. The winning students researched severe weather and developed a preparedness guide for hurricane readiness. They then wrote, directed, produced and edited a PSA about how to stay safe during and after a storm.

Turn off features that are not needed to minimize the attack surface of the device. Smartphones continue to grow in popularity and are now as powerful and functional as many computers. Keep in mind that criminals are always looking for ways to obtain any type of useful information, especially on unsuspecting victims. Protecting Mobile Device If the phones operating system has encryption available, use it to protect your personal data in the case of loss or theft. With the growth of the application market for mobile devices, look at the reviews of the developer/company who published the application. Review and understand the permissions you give when you download applications. Understand their privacy and access setting. Be cautious in downloading applications and be aware of what data they access as a condition of their use. Look for comments other users post before downloading an application. Passcode protect your device. This is the first layer of physical security to protect its contents. In conjunction with the passcode, enable the screen lock feature after a few minutes of inactivity. Obtain malware protection. Look for applications that specialize in antivirus or file integrity that helps protect your device from rogue applications and malware. Be aware of applications that can track your location. They can be used by a criminal to assist a stalker or a burglar. Be aware that using jailbreak or rooting to remove certain restrictions imposed by the device manufacturer or cell phone carrier, which allows you nearly unregulated control over what programs can be installed and how the device can be used, often exploits significant security vulnerabilities and increases the attack surface of the device. Any time a user, application, or service runs in "unrestricted" or "system" level within an operational system, any compromise can take full control of the device. Dont allow your device to connect to unknown wireless networks. These networks could be rogue access points that capture information passed between your device and a legitimate server. If you decide to sell your device or trade it in, make sure you wipe the device (reset it to factory default) to avoid leaving personal data on the device. Install all smartphone updates to run applications and firmware. If you neglect this you risk having your device hacked or compromised. Avoid clicking on or otherwise downloading software or links from unknown sources. Use the same security precautions on your mobile phone as you would on your computer when using the Internet. Here are some tips for safe mobile banking : Use your wifeless network when possible, not a Wi-Fi hot spot. Use Wi-Fi networks you know are secure. Make sure no one is looking over your shoulder to see your passwords. Know how to verify that a text message is from your bank. Your bank should tell you how to do this. Use your banks app to connect, not a mobile web browser. The former should be equipped with the latest data-encryption technology. Log out when finished. Check your phone periodically for unfamiliar apps that could be malware. Safety Armed Robbery Suspect Investigation revealed an unknown suspect entered the business and walked around for a short period of time. The suspect approached the counter and pulled out a silver gun. The suspect pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded money. The suspect was given money and he fled the store on foot. Suspect is described as skinny, 5'9"-5'11", shiny silver earring, grey sweatpants, and wearing a purple polo style shirt. The shirt was on backwards with the collar flipped up in the front Anyone who has any information about the identity or location of this armed robbery suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS or email at rewards@fccrimestoppers.com. You will remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000. Dealership Owner Corners and Shoots Juvenile Burglar The night after burglars stole the keys to all of the cars for sale at a car dealership, the owner armed himself, recruited some friends to help, and waited for the thieves to return. After several hours of waiting, all but one of his friends had left. Then just before 2 a.m., four young criminals returned in a car stolen from the night before and headed for a Nissan Rogue. When lot owner Jonas Charles confronted the burglars, they scattered and Charles fired several shots from his handgun in their direction. He cornered a 15-year-old and a 13year-old between two box trucks on the north side of the lot and dialed 911. The 15-year-old put his hands up and said to Charles, Please dont shoot me, witnesses told the Violent Crimes Unit detectives. Charles shot him once in the abdomen. Afterward, dispatchers heard the teen say, You shot me, bro. The teens ran in different directions. Charles chased the injured teen, yelling at him and firing another shot while on an open line with a dispatcher. Police arrived as Charles was chasing the suspect and they caught u teen, who had been shot once in the lower ab domen. The Fire Rescue transported him to a nearby hospital where he was reported to have survived. Charles initially denied having a gun or shooting the burglar, instead blaming one of his friends, but eventually admitted to the shooting. Charles was arrested on a charge of attempted murder. Police found the 13-year-old hiding on the roof of an adjacent business. Both teens will face burglary charges. The incident from the previous night is under investigation. In addition to the keys, the burglars stole two vehicles and a laptop computer. Man Robs Bank with a Stick A man was arrested after trying to rob a bank with a stick. A masked man was reported to have entered a bank at about 2:45 and displayed an object wrapped in a black plastic bag as he yelled, Nobody is going to get hurt if you give me $50,000 from the vault. Witnesses at the bank also described that the robber was actually carrying a stick. The man identified as 33-year-old Andrew Murray was given a small amount of cash and then ran from the bank to a wooded area before going into a neighborhood. As the police were in search of Murray, they were notified by a postal worker of a suspicious person. An officer on a bicycle spotted a man matching the descriptions from witnesses and ordered him several times to stop, but the man did not comply. A few minutes later, the officer went after the man and deployed a Taser weapon before taking him into custody. After a search of the path of Murrays escape, officers found a mask, gloves, and a pair of boots. Police also found $124 in cash on him. Murray was arrested and charged with armed robbery and resisting arrest without violence. He is being held $52,506 bond. Two Burglars Caught in the Act Shortly after 9:00 a.m., officers responded to a suspicious incident at a specific address. The caller, a neighbor, reported seeing a black vehicle drop off a male at a home. As the suspect walked to the rear of the home through a gate, the vehicle left the area. Officers checked around the home and found that the rear sliding door was open. As officers waited for the K-9 team to respond at the front, the suspect opened the front door and saw an Vincent Johnson officer then retreated back in to the home. The suspect, identified as 39year-old Roderick Kendricks, then left the home through the open rear slider and was taken into custody. When officers checked the home they discovered the rear slider pried open. The caller identified Kendricks as the male he saw enter the backyard. When officers searched Kendricks, they found a Canon camera and several blank checks in his pocket, both belonging to the homeowner. Kendricks told officers how he committed the crime. Officers checking the area for the suspects car located it shortly after. The driver of the vehicle, 28-year-old Vincent Johnson, had a suspended drivers license and was identified by the witness as the driver of the suspect car, which the witness also identified. Officers arrested Johnson. Kendricks and Johnson were charged with burglary, grand theft, and criminal mischief. Jonas Charles Andrew Murray Roderick Kendricks On the Lookout!

PAGE 7 THE STAR MAY 31, 2014 By KIRKWOOD HANNAH The Florida/Georgia Star 100,000 plus people turned out for what has to be one of the most memorable Jacksonville Jazz fest in recent years. The fans were not disappointed with the likes of Marcus Johnson, Al Jarreau and Average between acts and speaking of local acts, JU Jazz Combo, the Youth Talent Showcase and Jacksonville Piano Concert Winner performed just to name a few. The main course however was served by Marcus Johnson and his outstanding Saxophonist, Phillip Martin who consistently stole the show. Not to be outdone was the local guitarist who scored in outstanding measures, riff after riff. Marcus said the guitarist was from Jacksonville and they had met only 1 hours before the show. The way he played, youd think they were together for years, barely missing a beat. The Average White Band got everyone on their feet with Cut The Cake and smoothed The evening out with A Love of My Own. Hit after hit they sang as the crowd sang along, sometimes out singing the band. This is what a live concert is supposed to be like. And at the other end of the spectrum is the master, Al Jarreau the crooner. Upbeat and then repressed, he does it all with his magical voice. Al started the genre of using your voice as a musical instrument and no one does it better. Al Jarreau will take you on a magic carpet ride and drop you off in love. Needless to say, there was standing room only for 5 blocks when he performed.Big crowd attend Jacksonville Jazz Festival 2014 Al Jarreau Average White Band Marcus Johnson Thelma Sawyer and Janice D.

ANNOUNCEMENTSOPINION S Duval County Property Assessments are Unfair!Recently I decided to check up on what are the true problems in our Jacksonville budget. The truth is that the money is there so that we could solve the pension fund, build new fire stations, hire more cops, provide longer library hours, avoid a new sales tax increase, and also roll back the millage a little bit. People need to get off the back of Mayor Alvin Brown. We have problems, but he is no t the problem The reason this city is in trouble is that the Property Appraiser does not do his job properly. He fails to comply with the Constitution. He DOES assess poor folks and middle-class folks about right, setting the assessment at about 100% of the actual value of the properties. Hey, YOU probably trust the assessor, because, righ t now, you probably find that your own assessments seem about correct. So you figure everyone else is being treated fairly. The inequity is in the assessment for the silk-stocking set, the people with homes worth $400,000 or $500,000 or one million dollars or two million dollars. These people are regularly assessed less than full value. It is not right. It is illegal. It is in violation of our Florida Constitution. And there is a racial aspect t o this. As I look through the records, I find many instances of a home which sells for more than $400,000 but its property assessment before and after the sale is dramatically less than the sales price. I even find some homes which sell fo r as much as $2,000,000 which are assessed before and after the sale at only $1,000,000. This is not some amusing or quaint or cute accident. This is serious business. Some of us with homes worth much much less than $400,000 would like to get a 50% discount on our assessment, if any more of these discounts are available. WHY? Why is the unfairness continuing? I don't know how to compute the motives for wrongdoers. Maybe it is stupidity. Maybe it is laziness. Maybe it is something worse than that. Duval County always always always hits you for full value on $50,000 homes, $100,000 homes, $200,000 homes, $300,000 homes. BUT Duval County frequently gives a discount on the assessment of $400,000 homes and homes more valuable than that. Is this a deliberate effort to discriminate against the poor and against the middle class? I don't know. But it does discriminate against the poor and the middle class, whether this is intentional or not. Regardless of why this is being done, it is urgent that we right smack right now STOP this practice. Is this a deliberate effort to discriminate against blacks? I don't know. But this current policy does in fact discriminate against blacks. Most blacks in Duval own homes in the price range where they get you for 100%. If some folks are going to get discounts, I am sure the only fair plan would be to offer the same discounts for blacks, too? Anyone have a comment about this? Very very few blacks get the outrageous fatcat discounts. Most of the fatcat discounts are for rich white fatca t Republicans. Now the appraiser will say that these accidental discounts are purely accidental...and that he never intended for these discounts to be only for rich, white, fatcat, Republicans. He will say this. But the bottom line is tha t the huge discounts (or mistakes, whatever he calls it) seem to be only in favor of white folks. Some folks ask me why do I care if special rich Republican white folks get away with paying $10,000 per yea r less than the law requires! Some folks even make silly comments about how they are happy for anyone who can ge t by with paying less than the law requires. That is absurd. If some folks pay less than required, then the rest of us pay a little more to offset it...or else we wind up with a budget which is broken. I started to look into this mess after all the Republican carping about how Mayor Brown is not handling the budge t very well. Now, after exploring the facts, I can report to people who want the truth. Mayor Brown is not the problem. The Property Appraiser is the problem. If every property in Duval were appraised at 100% of fair market value, then we could have millage reduction, plus no new sales tax, plus money to increase library hours, plus money for more police, plus money for more fire stations, plus money for all the budget problems, plus money sufficient to solve the pension fund. I urge people to express support for Mayor Brown. And I urge people to demand 100% assessments for everyone. (Or, if some folks get 50% discounts on the assessments, let's make it available for all folks, black and white, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican.) By the way, these under-assessments are not only a problem for the city; this failure to obey the Constitution also cheat our Duval schools out of millions of dollars each year. A little bit of public outcry might be all it takes to light a fire under the property appraiser to do right. Sincerely, Andy Johnson, Former Member, Florida House Andy Johnson Former Member, Florida House

May 31, 2014 THESTAR PAGE 3 YOUTH Yale Scholarship Recipient Raised In Poverty And Crime Says He Never Wanted Pity Leonard Galmon grew up living a life tha t would lead many down a very bad path. Instead, he took the little that he had and focused on that as opposed to focusing on what he didnt have. His drive and determination earned him a scholarship at Yale. Galmon is a visual artist who will have his favorite piece displayed this spring at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. Within the one year he spent at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, he created his best piece. The message of the piece is simple: Stay out of trouble. The threedimensional painting displayed a young man in a gray hoodie who is looking back at the viewer with his shoulders hunched. His shadow is cast over a gun that is lying on the ground behind him. Galmon is the oldest of his mothers six children. She had him at the age of thirteen. His fathe r had been a drug dealer who was murdered while Galmon was only four years old. The family never had much, but the driven teen remembers love, support, and an art class that he loved. He wrote about this in an essay he submitted to Yale. He said that he always knew that there was someone that had it worse than he did, and he didnt wan t people to have pity for him. His uncle tried to take over a male role model position with Galmon, but he fell to societal pressures. He did, however, teach Galmon how to draw before he succumbed to his own demise. Galmon took an art course his sophomore year while attending the worst school in New Orleans. It was the start of his greatness. His very first painting was selected to be on display with the Contemporary Arts Center. He later switched schools and attende d Cohen College Prep. At this school, he was encouraged to apply to all of the fine institutions that he didnt think that he would get into. Yale wanted him and that is the school that he chose. He was one out of only 26 people to receive the Ron Brown scholarship. Leonard GalmonSNOOPS YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE PRODUCES 3 NFL PLAYERS IN 2014In the fall of 2005, West Coast rap giant Calvin Snoop Dogg Broadus took his love of sports and desire to provide an opportunity for inner-city youth to have an outle t opposed to the street life that almost snared his life. With his Snoop Youth Football League, a non-profit organization funded mostly by the rapper himself, uses football an d cheerleading to teach the values of teamwork, good sportsmanship, discipline, self-respect and stresses the importance of academics. Almost ten years later, Snoops Youth Football League is going strong and more importantly changing lives. Snoop Dogg has been able to bridge communities and cultures through the mutual love of sports and give a lot of kids positive reinforcemen t and valuable experiences that probably would not have happened without him and his league. Snoop has a good reason to stick out his chest with pride, as the NFL Rookie Class of 2014 features 3 alumni of his youth football league: DeAnthony Thomas, running back, who played his college ball at the University of Oregon, was picked up in the fourth-round of the 2014 NFL draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. Kam Jackson, cornerback, played at the University of California, signed as an undrafted free agent to theIndianapolis Colts. Greg Ducre, also a cornerback, was a student-athlete at the University of Washington, also signed as an undrafted free agent for the San Diego Chargers. They all got scooped up were very happy and very proud of these kids, Snoop said. In 2012, Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman became the first SYFL alum to make it to the NFL and according to TMZ Sports, Snoop is very excited about the future. I feel good abou t the guys that are coming out this year, the yea r after and the kids tha t are in the league righ t now, Snoop says We got kids all over the SYFL that have tha t spirit to go to the nex t level! Currently, Snoops league has between 1,500-1,700 players in the league and he reveals that he is aiming to implement a policy that will allow kids to play in the league for free if they maintain a 3.0 grade point average or better. The first thing that we preach is student athletes. Its a community of love, Snoop says Its more of a family than a football league. I think it is very commendable for Snoop to not only have started the league but to stay dedicated to it as it approaches almost a decade in existence. One can not dispute results! I think it is amazing that 4 young men from his league have made it to play professional sports, but the real success are the values and sense of community being instilled in these kids. Way to go Snoop !! Local JaxPAL Youth Graduate From JAXEX High Achievers ProgramJACKSONVILLE, FL May 27, 2014. Jacksonville Executive at Craig Airport (JAXEX) and the Police Athletic League (PAL) of Jacksonville are pleased to announce the graduation of the inaugural class of JAXEX High Achievers, a joint initiative designed to expose local youth to exciting career opportunities in aviation. Leaders from the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA), PAL and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) gathered May 22, 2014, with tenants, parents and special guests to recognize the students who successfully completed the four-month-long program. The JAXEX High Achievers initiative included a series of monthly workshops that offered hands-on demonstrations, professional development training and information about aviation-related degrees, skills and careers ranging from piloting an aircraft, aerial p hotography and airport operations and administration. Workshops were hosted by JAXEX tenants, including ControlCam, Malone AirCharter, JAA and RVA, Inc. (the air traffic control tower staff). "I'm thrilled and grateful that we were able to partner with the Police Athletic League and our tenants to offer this unique learning and career-building opportunity to local students," said JAA Executive Director Steve Grossman. "I hope the High Achievers program inspired a love for aviation in these students that may one day impact their education and career decisions." JAXEX High Achievers graduates received a certificate of completion and heard words of advice and congratulations from JAA Executive Director Steve Grossman and Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford. Students also took the opportunity to expound on their experience with the program, and how it has impacted future college and career p lans. "It's been fun having the PAL students out at JAXEX," said JAXEX Airport Manager Tiffany Gillem. "They asked great questions and were very engaged in the workshop activities with our tenants."

Christina Smith, Karrington Copeland, Kishon Sifford and Navon Mickens produced Breaking News: Theres a Hurricane, a 30-second PSA that promotes public safety and emergency preparedness. These hardworking young people deserve a hand for representing Jacksonville in such a positive light, said Mayor Brown. In an emergency, preparedness is critical. I encourage residents of all ages both young and old to get educated about how to make a plan and stay safe during a significant weather event. The winning students researched severe weather and developed a preparedness guide for hurricane readiness. They then wrote, directed, produced and edited a PSA about how to stay safe during and after a storm. Each year, the Florida Division of Emergency Management hosts the Kids Get A Plan PSA contest among Florida students, with a goal of promoting preparedness for all types of weather emergencies, as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week. A leader in municipal emergency planning, the City of Jacksonvilles The Emergency Preparedness Division is responsible for disaster preparedness in accordance with and in support of national and state emergency plans and programs.

Turn off features that are not needed to minimize the attack surface of the device. Smartphones continue to grow in popularity and are now as powerful and functional as many computers. Keep in mind that criminals are always looking for ways to obtain any type of useful information, especially on unsuspecting victims. Protecting Mobile Device If the phones operating system has encryption available, use it to protect your personal data in the case of loss or theft. With the growth of the application market for mobile devices, look at the reviews of the developer/company who published the application. Review and understand the permissions you give when you download applications. Understand their privacy and access setting. Be cautious in downloading applications and be aware of what data they access as a condition of their use. Look for comments other users post before downloading an application. Passcode protect your device. This is the first layer of physical security to protect its contents. In conjunction with the passcode, enable the screen lock feature after a few minutes of inactivity. Obtain malware protection. Look for applications that specialize in antivirus or file integrity that helps protect your device from rogue applications and malware. Be aware of applications that can track your location. They can be used by a criminal to assist a stalker or a burglar. Be aware that using jailbreak or rooting to remove certain restrictions imposed by the device manufacturer or cell phone carrier, which allows you nearly unregulated control over what programs can be installed and how the device can be used, often exploits significant security vulnerabilities and increases the attack surface of the device. Any time a user, application, or service runs in "unrestricted" or "system" level within an operational system, any compromise can take full control of the device. Dont allow your device to connect to unknown wireless networks. These networks could be rogue access points that capture information passed between your device and a legitimate server. If you decide to sell your device or trade it in, make sure you wipe the device (reset it to factory default) to avoid leaving personal data on the device. Install all smartphone updates to run applications and firmware. If you neglect this you risk having your device hacked or compromised. Avoid clicking on or otherwise downloading software or links from unknown sources. Use the same security precautions on your mobile phone as you would on your computer when using the Internet. Here are some tips for safe mobile banking : Use your wifeless network when possible, not a Wi-Fi hot spot. Use Wi-Fi networks you know are secure. Make sure no one is looking over your shoulder to see your passwords. Know how to verify that a text message is from your bank. Your bank should tell you how to do this. Use your banks app to connect, not a mobile web browser. The former should be equipped with the latest data-encryption technology. Log out when finished. Check your phone periodically for unfamiliar apps that could be malware. Safety Armed Robbery Suspect Investigation revealed an unknown suspect entered the business and walked around for a short period of time. The suspect approached the counter and pulled out a silver gun. The suspect pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded money. The suspect was given money and he fled the store on foot. Suspect is described as skinny, 5'9"-5'11", shiny silver earring, grey sweatpants, and wearing a purple polo style shirt. The shirt was on backwards with the collar flipped up in the front Anyone who has any information about the identity or location of this armed robbery suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS or email at rewards@fccrimestoppers.com. You will remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000. Dealership Owner Corners and Shoots Juvenile Burglar The night after burglars stole the keys to all of the cars for sale at a car dealership, the owner armed himself, recruited some friends to help, and waited for the thieves to return. After several hours of waiting, all but one of his friends had left. Then just before 2 a.m., four young criminals returned in a car stolen from the night before and headed for a Nissan Rogue. When lot owner Jonas Charles confronted the burglars, they scattered and Charles fired several shots from his handgun in their direction. He cornered a 15-year-old and a 13year-old between two box trucks on the north side of the lot and dialed 911. The 15-year-old put his hands up and said to Charles, Please dont shoot me, witnesses told the Violent Crimes Unit detectives. Charles shot him once in the abdomen. Afterward, dispatchers heard the teen say, You shot me, bro. The teens ran in different directions. Charles chased the injured teen, yelling at him and firing another shot while on an open line with a dispatcher. Police arrived as Charles was chasing the suspect and they caught u teen, who had been shot once in the lower abdomen. The Fire Rescue transported him to a nearby hospital where he was reported to have survived. Charles initially denied having a gun or shooting the burglar, instead blaming one of his friends, but eventually admitted to the shooting. Charles was arrested on a charge of attempted murder. Police found the 13-year-old hiding on the roof of an adjacent business. Both teens will face burglary charges. The incident from the previous night is under investigation. In addition to the keys, the burglars stole two vehicles and a laptop computer. Man Robs Bank with a Stick A man was arrested after trying to rob a bank with a stick. A masked man was reported to have entered a bank at about 2:45 and displayed an object wrapped in a black plastic bag as he yelled, Nobody is going to get hurt if you give me $50,000 from the vault. Witnesses at the bank also described that the robber was actually carrying a stick. The man identified as 33-year-old Andrew Murray was given a small amount of cash and then ran from the bank to a wooded area before going into a neighborhood. As the police were in search of Murray, they were notified by a postal worker of a suspicious person. An officer on a bicycle spotted a man matching the descriptions from witnesses and ordered him several times to stop, but the man did not comply. A few minutes later, the officer went after the man and deployed a Taser weapon before taking him into custody. After a search of the path of Murrays escape, officers found a mask, gloves, and a pair of boots. Police also found $124 in cash on him. Murray was arrested and charged with armed robbery and resisting arrest without violence. He is being held $52,506 bond. Two Burglars Caught in the Act Shortly after 9:00 a.m., officers responded to a suspicious incident at a specific address. The caller, a neighbor, reported seeing a black vehicle drop off a male at a home. As the suspect walked to the rear of the home through a gate, the vehicle left the area. Officers checked around the home and found that the rear sliding door was open. As officers waited for the K-9 team to respond at the front, the suspect opened the front door and saw an Vincent Johnson officer then retreated back into the home. The suspect, identified as 39year-old Roderick Kendricks, then left the home through the open rear slider and was taken into custody. When officers checked the home they discovered the rear slider pried open. The caller identified Kendricks as the male he saw enter the backyard. When officers searched Kendricks, they found a Canon camera and several blank checks in his pocket, both belonging to the homeowner. Kendricks told officers how he committed the crime. Officers checking the area for the suspects car located it shortly after. The driver of the vehicle, 28-year-old Vincent Johnson, had a suspended drivers license and was identified by the witness as the driver of the suspect car, which the witness also identified. Officers arrested Johnson. Kendricks and Johnson were charged with burglary, grand theft, and criminal mischief. Jonas Charles Andrew Murray Roderick Kendricks On the Lookout!

PAGE 7 THE STAR MAY 31, 2014 By KIRKWOOD HANNAH The Florida/Georgia Star 100,000 plus people turned out for what has to be one of the most memorable Jacksonville Jazz fest in recent years. The fans were not disappointed with the likes of Marcus Johnson, Al Jarreau and Average between acts and speaking of local acts, JU Jazz Combo, the Youth Talent Showcase and Jacksonville Piano Concert Winner performed just to name a few. The main course however was served by Marcus Johnson and his outstanding Saxophonist, Phillip Martin who consistently stole the show. Not to be outdone was the local guitarist who scored in outstanding measures, riff after riff. Marcus said the guitarist was from Jacksonville and they had met only 1 hours before the show. The way he played, youd think they were together for years, barely missing a beat. The Average White Band got everyone on their feet with Cut The Cake and smoothed The evening out with A Love of My Own. Hit after hit they sang as the crowd sang along, sometimes out singing the band. This is what a live concert is supposed to be like. And at the other end of the spectrum is the master, Al Jarreau the crooner. Upbeat and then repressed, he does it all with his magical voice. Al started the genre of using your voice as a musical instrument and no one does it better. Al Jarreau will take you on a magic carpet ride and drop you off in love. Needless to say, there was standing room only for 5 blocks when he performed.Big crowd attend Jacksonville Jazz Festival 2014 Al Jarreau Average White Band Marcus Johnson Thelma Sawyer and Janice D.

ANNOUNCEMENTSOPINION S Duval County Property Assessments are Unfair!Recently I decided to check up on what are the true problems in our Jacksonville budget. The truth is that the money is there so that we could solve the pension fund, build new fire stations, hire more cops, provide longer library hours, avoid a new sales tax increase, and also roll back the millage a little bit. People need to get off the back of Mayor Alvin Brown. We have problems, but he is no t the problem The reason this city is in trouble is that the Property Appraiser does not do his job properly. He fails to comply with the Constitution. He DOES assess poor folks and middle-class folks about right, setting the assessment at about 100% of the actual value of the properties. Hey, YOU probably trust the assessor, because, righ t now, you probably find that your own assessments seem about correct. So you figure everyone else is being treated fairly. The inequity is in the assessment for the silk-stocking set, the people with homes worth $400,000 or $500,000 or one million dollars or two million dollars. These people are regularly assessed less than full value. It is not right. It is illegal. It is in violation of our Florida Constitution. And there is a racial aspect t o this. As I look through the records, I find many instances of a home which sells for more than $400,000 but its property assessment before and after the sale is dramatically less than the sales price. I even find some homes which sell fo r as much as $2,000,000 which are assessed before and after the sale at only $1,000,000. This is not some amusing or quaint or cute accident. This is serious business. Some of us with homes worth much much less than $400,000 would like to get a 50% discount on our assessment, if any more of these discounts are available. WHY? Why is the unfairness continuing? I don't know how to compute the motives for wrongdoers. Maybe it is stupidity. Maybe it is laziness. Maybe it is something worse than that. Duval County always always always hits you for full value on $50,000 homes, $100,000 homes, $200,000 homes, $300,000 homes. BUT Duval County frequently gives a discount on the assessment of $400,000 homes and homes more valuable than that. Is this a deliberate effort to discriminate against the poor and against the middle class? I don't know. But it does discriminate against the poor and the middle class, whether this is intentional or not. Regardless of why this is being done, it is urgent that we right smack right now STOP this practice. Is this a deliberate effort to discriminate against blacks? I don't know. But this current policy does in fact discriminate against blacks. Most blacks in Duval own homes in the price range where they get you for 100%. If some folks are going to get discounts, I am sure the only fair plan would be to offer the same discounts for blacks, too? Anyone have a comment about this? Very very few blacks get the outrageous fatcat discounts. Most of the fatcat discounts are for rich white fatca t Republicans. Now the appraiser will say that these accidental discounts are purely accidental...and that he never intended for these discounts to be only for rich, white, fatcat, Republicans. He will say this. But the bottom line is tha t the huge discounts (or mistakes, whatever he calls it) seem to be only in favor of white folks. Some folks ask me why do I care if special rich Republican white folks get away with paying $10,000 per yea r less than the law requires! Some folks even make silly comments about how they are happy for anyone who can ge t by with paying less than the law requires. That is absurd. If some folks pay less than required, then the rest of us pay a little more to offset it...or else we wind up with a budget which is broken. I started to look into this mess after all the Republican carping about how Mayor Brown is not handling the budge t very well. Now, after exploring the facts, I can report to people who want the truth. Mayor Brown is not the problem. The Property Appraiser is the problem. If every property in Duval were appraised at 100% of fair market value, then we could have millage reduction, plus no new sales tax, plus money to increase library hours, plus money for more police, plus money for more fire stations, plus money for all the budget problems, plus money sufficient to solve the pension fund. I urge people to express support for Mayor Brown. And I urge people to demand 100% assessments for everyone. (Or, if some folks get 50% discounts on the assessments, let's make it available for all folks, black and white, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican.) By the way, these under-assessments are not only a problem for the city; this failure to obey the Constitution also cheat our Duval schools out of millions of dollars each year. A little bit of public outcry might be all it takes to light a fire under the property appraiser to do right.
