For people with Medicare www.CarePlusJacksonville.com Gloster and Celia Buchannan (pictured) and Henrietta Haynes Wolfe received accollades on Saint Simons Island during the 21st Hall-Kornegay Families Reunion. Family reunions are very special occasions where we pride ourselves on maintaining and nurturing strong ties and traditions, said Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown. We have found such traditions to bear the legacy of our elders and predecessors, as well as forge an unbreakable bond between our past, present and future. For many of us, family reunions provide a true and unaltered history of a family, a people, and indeed a nation. We are therefore blessed to have such a strong and enduring family gathering which warms the soul, cradles the heart, and gives life and meaning to our very existence. At 93 years young Henrietta A. Haynes Wolfe hasnt slowed down one bit. During her lifetime, she has been a teacher, seamstress, dietician and so much more, holding high ranking positions throughout her colorful career. Also being honored are Gloster and his wife Celia Buchannan. The 98 year-old and his blushing bride celebrated their 74th wedding anniversary last month. The couple have been described as hardworkers who have lived their whole life on the island, while working tirelessly to better their community. The eldest daughter of President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama is officially ready for the road. Malia Obama was presented with her first car when she turned 16 on July 4th. Malia has come a long way from entering the White House as a little girl. In May, she attended her prom and just last month she got her first job on a Halle Berry film set. With regard to Circuit Judge Terry Lewis ruling that Floridas Congressional map must be withdrawn, Congresswoman Corrine Brown has made it clear that she will fight to represent her district. The decision by Judge Lewis is seriously flawed, she said on Thursday night. It completely fails to take into consideration the rights of minority voters or to recognize federal law, specifically the 1964 Voting Rights Act which protects minority voting rights and clearly supersedes the States Fair Districts standards. The Congresswoman pointed out that the Florida Legislature conducted several dozen hearing throughout the State of Florida in a bi-partisan fashion to include voter participation and input on their representation, the Legislature drew the current plan and it passed both the House and Senate. Prior to the 1992 election, Florida had not had a federal African American representative since Josiah Thomas Walls, in 1871, a time span of 129 years. Nationally, prior to the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, between the years of 1832-1965 (133 years), there were only 28 elected African Americans. From 1965-Present (49 years), there were/are 103 elected African Americans (four times as many, in nearly one-third the time span). Overturning the current District 5 map ignores the essential redistricting principle of maintaining communities of interest or minority access districts,said Brown. Certainly, minority communities do not live in compact, cookie-cutter like neighborhoods, and excessive adherence to district compactness, while ignoring the maintenance of minority access districts, fragments minority communities across the state. The current District 5 map is essentially the same as the previous District (3), which was drawn by the courts and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, in adherence to the principles of the Voting Rights Act. She added: For most of my adult life, there were no minority members of Congress elected from Florida, and few African-Americans elected to the Florida House and Senate. That changed in 1992 when I was elected to Congress together with Rep. Carrie Meek from Miami and Rep. Alcee Hastings from Ft. Lauderdale. Yet to obtain this seat I had to file a lawsuit, Congresswoman Brown said. I fought for four African American seats in the courts, and in the end, we reached a compromise and got three, again based on the tenets of The Voting Rights Act. As a result of this lawsuit, in 1993, after nearly 130 years, the state of Florida had three African American federal representatives. And for the first time in many years, minority community members in the state of Florida were represented by people who truly understood them; who grew up in the same neighborhoods and attended the same churches and schools as they did. I firmly believe that I, as an African American legislator, can understand and empathize with the issues my constituents confront on a profound level since I share the same racial and cultural background as they do, and have had to battle many of the same challenges and prejudices as they have. Today, our diverse states population is 16% African American and 21% Hispanic, comprising over one-third of Floridas residents. To uphold the hard-fought gains we have made, it is absolutely essential to incorporate the spirit of The Voting Rights Act into the State of Floridas political boundaries. One critical part of the Voting Rights Act strictly prohibits the fracturing of communities of minority voters into a variety of districts. This element of the Act is essential in the maintenance of minority representation not just in the state of Florida, but across the entire nation. A Florida Star reader said he is not worried because Corrine delivers because she doesnt give up. A 16 year-old father to be was found dead of gunshot wounds on Thursday in his driveway near Ribault. The teen was identified as Johnathon Thomas. On Thursday night, two men were taken into police custody. Neighbors claimed they heard gunshots and a car speeding away before Thomas was discovered. Investigations continue. Teen Shot Dead In Driveway

Detectives believe the car that pulled up behind her was a 2005 Suzuki Aerio that was carjacked earlier that morning that. According to the victim, the young male began to hit and kick her and pointed a handgun at her. The victim resisted and began hitting the first suspect with a flashlight. The victim told detectives that at least one more suspect ran up and began beating her. The suspects ultimately took a cellular phone from her pocket along with the car keys. The suspects then drove off with her car, which was a blue 2002 Ford Escape SUV. The victims Ford Escape was later located at approximately 10:00 a.m., unoccupied, by the Florida Highway Patrol. According to interviewed suspects, the car had run out of gas. Police also learned that the license plates for both stolen vehicles were switched after the 6:00 a.m. incident. With the assistance of the air unit, 3 of the believed 5 suspects were located and arrested. The other two were nowhere to be found at the time. Arrested were Deandre A. Leach, 18, Hezekiah Brambel-Wright, 18, and Horatio Walker, 16. Both Leach and Bramble-Wright told detectives they were at the scene of the carjacking of the 56-year-old woman that morning. They explained that they arrived in a vehicle that had been carjacked earlier in the morning (the blue Suzuki). They claimed the other suspects got out of the blue Suzuki and battered and carjacked the woman. Detectives determined that both Leach and Bramble-Wright were present while the 56-year-old woman was burglarized, battered, and robbed at gunpoint. They made no effort to stop or report the crime. They assisted in unloading items from the stolen vehicle. They said that they have been in the blue Ford Escape multiples times before and knew that it had been stolen. Leach later identified the other two suspects as Frederick Peacock, 23, and Bruce Daniels, 17. Police also learned that both suspects lived at the same address. Both were arrested a week and a half later. Peacock was first arrested and Daniels later turned himself in. Both confessed to the crime. Police discovered that the two suspects fled from the vehicle after it ran out of gas and also to resist arrest from the Highway Patrol officers. Leach and Wright are being charged with robbery with firearm/deadly weapon, armed burglary with assault/battery, resisting an officer without violence, and violation of probation/community control. Walker is being charged with trespass ing structure/conveyance, resisting an officer without violence, and violation of probation/community control. Peacock is being charged with felony armed burglary with battery, felony armed robbery, felony possession of meth, possession of paraphernalia, and resisting arrest. Daniels is being charged with felony armed burglary with battery, felony armed robbery, and resisting arrest. According to records, Leach has a prior arrest for possession of a concealed firearm. Wright has been previously charged with resisting a law enforcement officer, probation violation, probation violation, failure to appear, battery, false ID given to law enforcement, possession of marijuana, burglary, grand theft, and trespassing on school grounds. Argument Leads to Woman Being Shot andKilled Special Investigations Detectives were working a homicide investigation at a home, which was where a woman was found deceased from a gunshot wound last month on June 25, 2014. Investigators learned that several witnesses were involved in a verbal altercation. The argument happened among a group of friends and at one point Rickey Brown, 26, and Malik Jones, 28, were both holding weapons, according to witnesses. Several witnesses say Rickey was holding a long gun and he fired the weapon in the direction of the woman. Witnesses say Rickey walked towards her, who was sitting in a car. The victim was shot in the head. Rickey acknowledged that she was dying and both Rickey and Brown left the scene leaving the woman to die. About a week later, Brown andJones were arrested. Brown denied all accusations and said that the witnesses and detectives were all lying. Jones will face a charge of possession of weapon or ammo by convicted felon and he will be held on $20,000 bond. Brown will face a charge of armed manslaughter without bond.

JULY 12, 2014 THE STAR PAGE 7 Florida LOCALOn July 4, 2014, Thaddaeus (Joe) and Doris Wilson celebrated their 50th-wedding anniversary. They met in their hometown of Nashville, TN while playing tennis. As one version of on Doris, he was immediately smitten and couldnt think of anyone else. Joe made it his mission to create a situation where they would cross paths as often as possible. He wooed her, in a way, that made her realize how special they could be together. After almost two years of proving himself worthy, Doris said, I do! The other version of how they met differs only in the account of who was smitten by whomIll let you guess who tells which version. On July 1, 1964, they dedicated their lives to each other in front on God, family and friends. The celebration took place at their home in Arlington with members of their family and close friends. Fam ily and friends attended from various states, with Suitland, MD being the farthest travelled. The eldest attendee was Richard Beasley, brother of Do ris, who will be 76 years old this year. Joe and Doris raised three children, Thaddaues Wilson IV, Lisa Dixon, and Fredrick Wilson. When asked, what is the secret to their success, Doris says, understanding, communication and unconditional love. Joe completes the thought with compromise, sharing decisions and responsibilities and letting God lead!Joe and Doris Wilson celebrates 50th anniversary Doris Wilson and Thaddaeus (Joe) Wilson 50th wedding anniversary. On Monday, June 30th, Sensi-Care Services, Inc. celebrated its Opening Cer emony at Beaver Street En terprise Center! This is a dream come true, remarked Founder and CEO, Beverly Davis to the eagerly awaiting audience of family, friends and colleagues who attend ed. With their mission state ment, Improving Quality of Life through Outstanding Care Service, and their new logo representing a warm, compassionate hug, SensiCare Services, Inc. has cho sen to launch their company at Beaver Street Enterprise Center, Jacksonvilles oldest tor. It just makes sense to headquarter in an established facility that provides the same kind of nurturing sup port services to companies that we will supply to our clients, said Davis, whose competent, caring staff will begin providing services to the community as of July 1, 2014. Sensi-Care Services, Inc. is addressing a growing need in the aging population of Northeast Florida. There are too many people being placed in nursing facilities when they would be hap pier and healthier living in their own homes. We offer the services that can make it possible for them to age in place, said Davis. After retiring from her cer, working predominantly in human services, Davis earned her Masters Degree in Health with a concentra tion in Aging Services Man agement at the University of North Florida. Rotating through several departments at both the VA Nursing Home and at Westminster Woods Continuing Care Re tirement Community, Davis as an Assisted Living Ad ministrator. Her time spent in the nursing homes, both as an intern and as a volun to become a provider of nonmedical home care services for the elderly. The staff to resident ratio at even the best of nursing homes makes it impossible to maintain the one-on-one relationship and physical independence nec essary for optimal physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, said Davis, whose vision is for Sensi-Care between independent and as sisted living for the elderly. Were honored that Bever ly Davis has chosen to grow her new business at Beaver Street Enterprise Center, said Executive Director Jackie Perry.

It was the third straight double-digit victory against the Heat a team that dashed their NBA title dreams a season I was informed this morning of his intentions. We fully expected LeBron to opt-out and exercise his free agent rights, so this does not come as a surprise. As I said players have a right to free agency and when they have these opportunities, the right to explore their options, said club president Pat Riley. The last four seasons have been historic and LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Erik Spoelstra have led the Miami HEAT to one of the most unprecedented runs in the history of the NBA. We look forward to sitting down with LeBron and his representatives and talking about our future together.

Or is how to get paid all they really know? The cohort of black business people and politicians who pass for African American leadership is at an impasse, and so is the rest of black America. Our leaders have failed to produce economic development models for inner cities and poor black enclaves that benefit the people who live there now. Not only is the black leadership class unable to create jobs at living wages for the hundreds of thousands of black families that desperately need them, they can't even describe to the rest of America how such a thing might be done. The black leadership class dares not acknowledge the acute shortage of low and moderate income housing, or publicly question programs like HOPE VI which exacerbate that shortage. The black leadership class has proven powerless to prevent the nationwide imposition of separate and grossly unequal education, the disastrous application of high-stakes testing and the use of "No Child Left Behind" to discredit and defund public education. African American business and political leaders even lack the political imagination to rally their constituencies against the growth of a racially selective crime control and prison industry that has criminalized an entire generation of black youth, with far-reaching economic and social consequences.

Oscar Tinsley, pictured left in an old mugshot, shot and killed Nancy M. Johnson-Tinsley last week at a family reunion in Northwest Jacksonville. 65-year-old Nancy and 67year-old Oscar had troubles in their 40 year marriage, sources confirmed. In fact, a protection order filed by Nancy in the 1998 banned Oscar from their home for a year. On Valentines Day this year, Oscar was arrested for domestic battery. The Tinsleys were found dead by their son, just hours before they were to host a family reunion. Rodney Charles Maxwell, the 43 year-old Jacksonville man who was found guilty of raping a woman in a park, will recieve life in prison.

For people with Medicare www.CarePlusJacksonville.com Gloster and Celia Buchannan (pictured) and Henrietta Haynes Wolfe received accollades on Saint Simons Island during the 21st Hall-Kornegay Families Reunion. Family reunions are very special occasions where we pride ourselves on maintaining and nurturing strong ties and traditions, said Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown. We have found such traditions to bear the legacy of our elders and predecessors, as well as forge an unbreakable bond between our past, present and future. For many of us, family reunions provide a true and unaltered history of a family, a people, and indeed a nation. We are therefore blessed to have such a strong and enduring family gathering which warms the soul, cradles the heart, and gives life and meaning to our very existence. At 93 years young Henrietta A. Haynes Wolfe hasnt slowed down one bit. During her lifetime, she has been a teacher, seamstress, dietician and so much more, holding high ranking positions throughout her colorful career. Also being honored are Gloster and his wife Celia Buchannan. The 98 year-old and his blushing bride celebrated their 74th wedding anniversary last month. The couple have been described as hardworkers who have lived their whole life on the island, while working tirelessly to better their community. The eldest daughter of President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama is officially ready for the road. Malia Obama was presented with her first car when she turned 16 on July 4th. Malia has come a long way from entering the White House as a little girl. In May, she attended her prom and just last month she got her first job on a Halle Berry film set. With regard to Circuit Judge Terry Lewis ruling that Floridas Congressional map must be withdrawn, Congresswoman Corrine Brown has made it clear that she will fight to represent her district. The decision by Judge Lewis is seriously flawed, she said on Thursday night. It completely fails to take into consideration the rights of minority voters or to recognize federal law, specifically the 1964 Voting Rights Act which protects minority voting rights and clearly supersedes the States Fair Districts standards. The Congresswoman pointed out that the Florida Legislature conducted several dozen hearing throughout the State of Florida in a bi-partisan fashion to include voter participation and input on their representation, the Legislature drew the current plan and it passed both the House and Senate. Prior to the 1992 election, Florida had not had a federal African American representative since Josiah Thomas Walls, in 1871, a time span of 129 years. Nationally, prior to the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, between the years of 1832-1965 (133 years), there were only 28 elected African Americans. From 1965-Present (49 years), there were/are 103 elected African Americans (four times as many, in nearly one-third the time span). Overturning the current District 5 map ignores the essential redistricting principle of maintaining communities of interest or minority access districts,said Brown. Certainly, minority communities do not live in compact, cookie-cutter like neighborhoods, and excessive adherence to district compactness, while ignoring the maintenance of minority access districts, fragments minority communities across the state. The current District 5 map is essentially the same as the previous District (3), which was drawn by the courts and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, in adherence to the principles of the Voting Rights Act. She added: For most of my adult life, there were no minority members of Congress elected from Florida, and few African-Americans elected to the Florida House and Senate. That changed in 1992 when I was elected to Congress together with Rep. Carrie Meek from Miami and Rep. Alcee Hastings from Ft. Lauderdale. Yet to obtain this seat I had to file a lawsuit, Congresswoman Brown said. I fought for four African American seats in the courts, and in the end, we reached a compromise and got three, again based on the tenets of The Voting Rights Act. As a result of this lawsuit, in 1993, after nearly 130 years, the state of Florida had three African American federal representatives. And for the first time in many years, minority community members in the state of Florida were represented by people who truly understood them; who grew up in the same neighborhoods and attended the same churches and schools as they did. I firmly believe that I, as an African American legislator, can understand and empathize with the issues my constituents confront on a profound level since I share the same racial and cultural background as they do, and have had to battle many of the same challenges and prejudices as they have. Today, our diverse states population is 16% African American and 21% Hispanic, comprising over one-third of Floridas residents. To uphold the hard-fought gains we have made, it is absolutely essential to incorporate the spirit of The Voting Rights Act into the State of Floridas political boundaries. One critical part of the Voting Rights Act strictly prohibits the fracturing of communities of minority voters into a variety of districts. This element of the Act is essential in the maintenance of minority representation not just in the state of Florida, but across the entire nation. A Florida Star reader said he is not worried because Corrine delivers because she doesnt give up. A 16 year-old father to be was found dead of gunshot wounds on Thursday in his driveway near Ribault. The teen was identified as Johnathon Thomas. On Thursday night, two men were taken into police custody. Neighbors claimed they heard gunshots and a car speeding away before Thomas was discovered. Investigations continue. Teen Shot Dead In Driveway

Five Involved in Multiple Carjackings and Armed RobberiesFinallyArrested At approximately 6:00 a.m., a 56-year-old woman pulled into a parking lot. She heard something tip over in her back seat and got out of the car to take care of the tipped over items. She then noticed a smaller 4-door car pull up behind her and was rushed by a black male in his early 20s. Detectives believe the car that pulled up behind her was a 2005 Suzuki Aerio that was carjacked earlier that morning that. According to the victim, the young male began to hit and kick her and pointed a handgun at her. The victim resisted and began hitting the first suspect with a flashlight. The victim told detectives that at least one more suspect ran up and began beating her. The suspects ultimately took a cellular phone from her pocket along with the car keys. The suspects then drove off with her car, which was a blue 2002 Ford Escape SUV. The victims Ford Escape was later located at approximately 10:00 a.m., unoccupied, by the Florida Highway Patrol. According to interviewed suspects, the car had run out of gas. Police also learned that the license plates for both stolen vehicles were switched after the 6:00 a.m. incident. With the assistance of the air unit, 3 of the believed 5 suspects were located and arrested. The other two were nowhere to be found at the time. Arrested were Deandre A. Leach, 18, Hezekiah Brambel-Wright, 18, and Horatio Walker, 16. Both Leach and Bramble-Wright told detectives they were at the scene of the carjacking of the 56-year-old woman that morning. They explained that they arrived in a vehicle that had been carjacked earlier in the morning (the blue Suzuki). They claimed the other suspects got out of the blue Suzuki and battered and carjacked the woman. Detectives determined that both Leach and Bramble-Wright were present while the 56-year-old woman was burglarized, battered, and robbed at gunpoint. They made no effort to stop or report the crime. They assisted in unloading items from the stolen vehicle. They said that they have been in the blue Ford Escape multiples times before and knew that it had been stolen. Leach later identified the other two suspects as Frederick Peacock, 23, and Bruce Daniels, 17. Police also learned that both suspects lived at the same address. Both were arrested a week and a half later. Peacock was first arrested and Daniels later turned himself in. Both confessed to the crime. Police discovered that the two suspects fled from the vehicle after it ran out of gas and also to resist arrest from the Highway Patrol officers. Leach and Wright are being charged with robbery with firearm/deadly weapon, armed burglary with assault/battery, resisting an officer without violence, and violation of probation/community control. Walker is being charged with trespass ing structure/conveyance, resisting an officer without violence, and violation of probation/community control. Peacock is being charged with felony armed burglary with battery, felony armed robbery, felony possession of meth, possession of paraphernalia, and resisting arrest. Daniels is being charged with felony armed burglary with battery, felony armed robbery, and resisting arrest. According to records, Leach has a prior arrest for possession of a concealed firearm. Wright has been previously charged with resisting a law enforcement officer, probation violation, probation violation, failure to appear, battery, false ID given to law enforcement, possession of marijuana, burglary, grand theft, and trespassing on school grounds. Argument Leads to Woman Being Shot andKilled Special Investigations Detectives were working a homicide investigation at a home, which was where a woman was found deceased from a gunshot wound last month on June 25, 2014. Investigators learned that several witnesses were involved in a verbal altercation. The argument happened among a group of friends and at one point Rickey Brown, 26, and Malik Jones, 28, were both holding weapons, according to witnesses. Several witnesses say Rickey was holding a long gun and he fired the weapon in the direction of the woman. Witnesses say Rickey walked towards her, who was sitting in a car. The victim was shot in the head. Rickey acknowledged that she was dying and both Rickey and Brown left the scene leaving the woman to die. About a week later, Brown andJones were arrested. Brown denied all accusations and said that the witnesses and detectives were all lying. Jones will face a charge of possession of weapon or ammo by convicted felon and he will be held on $20,000 bond. Brown will face a charge of armed manslaughter without bond.

They met in their hometown of Nashville, TN while playing tennis. As one version of on Doris, he was immediately smitten and couldnt think of anyone else. Joe made it his mission to create a situation where they would cross paths as often as possible. He wooed her, in a way, that made her realize how special they could be together. After almost two years of proving himself worthy, Doris said, I do! The other version of how they met differs only in the account of who was smitten by whomIll let you guess who tells which version. On July 1, 1964, they dedicated their lives to each other in front on God, family and friends. The celebration took place at their home in Arlington with members of their family and close friends. Fam ily and friends attended from various states, with Suitland, MD being the farthest travelled. The eldest attendee was Richard Beasley, brother of Do ris, who will be 76 years old this year. Joe and Doris raised three children, Thaddaues Wilson IV, Lisa Dixon, and Fredrick Wilson.

Or is how to get paid all they really know? The cohort of black business people and politicians who pass for African American leadership is at an impasse, and so is the rest of black America. Our leaders have failed to produce economic development models for inner cities and poor black enclaves that benefit the people who live there now. Not only is the black leadership class unable to create jobs at living wages for the hundreds of thousands of black families that desperately need them, they can't even describe to the rest of America how such a thing might be done. The black leadership class dares not acknowledge the acute shortage of low and moderate income housing, or publicly question programs like HOPE VI which exacerbate that shortage. The black leadership class has proven powerless to prevent the nationwide imposition of separate and grossly unequal education, the disastrous application of high-stakes testing and the use of "No Child Left Behind" to discredit and defund public education. African American business and political leaders even lack the political imagination to rally their constituencies against the growth of a racially selective crime control and prison industry that has criminalized an entire generation of black youth, with far-reaching economic and social consequences.

Barrs Community Center at 10151 Crystal Springs Road. This is an informal meeting in which those interested can drop by anytime between 6:30 and 8 p.m. for information on the progress of relocating the Marietta interchange to Hammond Boulevard.
