The city has been tense since the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot six times by a police officer. Brown, who was two days shy of enrolling in school, wasunarmed. Meanwhile, another man in the area was killed by police. However, officers claim the man was brandishinga knife. Attorney General Eric Holder arrived in the city to try to calm discouraged residents who continued to clashwith law enforcement and the nationalguard. Popular news show host Bill O'Rielly cut his vacation short to criticize Al Sharpton's Ferguson visit, calling him a charlatan. "NBC News pays Al Sharpton to deliver garbage," O'Rielly told hisviewers. "Sharpton only cares about his own self-aggrandizement. And if he has to stoke racial hatred to get that, thats what Sharpton will do. I knowthis man. His record defines him." Sharpton later commented that he was invited to the town by Michael Brown's family to speak at a rally. "The officer has the right to a presumption of innocence and the family and I have the right to question whether there will be a fair and impar-tial investigation,' he said in a statement. "I fail to see who Mr. O'Reilley is speaking for that has any direct interest in this matter."Multiple arrests, another man dead, Attorney General arrives and Al Sharpton accused of stirring racial hatred and garbageBeyonce` fake baby bump rumors have been about since her pregnant belly seemed to have foldedd uring a television interview.

You may be asked to repeat some information to EMS or Fire Department personnel.It doesnt delay help that is already on the way. 3. Remain calm Try to remain calm and provide as much detailed information as possible. The calmer you are, the clearer you can be, the better operators and responders can hear and help you. 4. Describe the emergency Are you, or is someone else hurt?How?Whether you need medical attention, police response, or other emergency assistance, explaining the nature and severity of injuries can be critical is the person conscious? Choking?Bleeding?Describe what is happening to the best of your ability, or ask someone else to, and leave the line open if you cannot speak. 5.

Mother Neglects Four Children A mother was arrested after she let her four young children walk almost a half-mile to a local park, leaving them alone while she went to a food bank. At approximately 12 noon, an officer on routine patrol spotted four small children (ages 8, 6, and two 7-year-olds) playing in the park. She noticed that there was not an adult in the immediate area, so the officer parked her marked patrol unit across the road from the park. After sitting for a few minutes, the officer saw the children waving her over in their direction. She immediately went to see what the problem was and found the 8-yearold boy stuck in a swing designed for toddlers. His legs were caught between the seat divider and the child was becoming more and more upset. The officer attempted to free the child, but was unable to do so. She contacted the Fire Department and personnel came to take the swing off of the frame. The officer attempted to locate an adult, with no success. She quizzed the children and they were unable to say where they lived. After Fire Department personnel left the area, the officer continued to watch for an adult. The children started playing again, ending up close to the roadway, climbing on a five-foot tall concrete sign, and playing in the water along the lakefront. Fearing for their safety, the officer once again approached the children and quizzed them for their home address or family information. They ultimately gave their names and ages and told them they lived nearby. They said that they walked to the park by themselves, leaving their home "in the morning." At this point, more than two and a half hours had passed since the officer initially encountered the children. The officer called for assistance and while waiting for another officer to arrive, an SUV pulled in. The oldest child indicated that was their mother in the vehicle. The mother, 28-year-old Ashley Richardson, was taken into custody and transported to the police department to be interviewed. She stated she didn't think it would take so long at the food bank. It is still unclear when the children left their home to walk to the park or where the food bank Richardson went to was located. Richardson faces four counts of negligent child abuse without bodily harm. One of Three Armed Robbers Arrested A man was arrested after an armed robbery occurred in broad daylight. Police quickly apprehended 21-yearold Deontae Neal after he approached the victim with a firearm demanding money and fleeing with cash, a cell phone, and identification cards. At approximately 1:20 p.m., the victim was in front if his residence when a vehicle pulled up. A male identified as 23-year-old Jamario Harvey approached the victim and asked him if he wanted to gamble. Harvey and the victim then went across the street to a vacant house and began gambling. The driver, 24-year-old Carlos Leondre parked on the street across from the location and exited the vehicle with Neal. Neal approached Harvey and the victim, but turned back towards the vehicle as if he was going to leave. Moments later, Neal turned back around and put a gun to the victim's head and demanded money. The victim, fearing for his life, put his hands in the air as Neal went through his pockets and took all of the contents, including cash, personal identification, and his cell phone. The victim was able to flee to safety and contact police. Officers arrived on the scene and quickly located a vehicle in the area matching the description of the one that Neal was seen in prior to the incident. Officers then conducted a lawful traffic stop on the vehicle, but the driver and the passenger, Neal, ran from the area. Police located Neal hiding in a shed at a residence and the victim's cell phone and money was located under a bucket inside. A gun was also located on the roof of the same shed. The victim's identification was later found inside of the vehicle that Neal fled from. The driver of the vehicle was not located. Neal was arrested and charged with armed robbery, armed burglary, possession of a firearm by convicted felon, and resisting arrest without violence. Police are still searching for Harvey and Leondre.

PAGE THESTAR AUGUST. 2014Former US Ambassador Andrew Young and Michelle Nunn Visit Brunswick, Ga LOCALNEWS On Saturday August 16, I had the opportunity to be a part of a tremendous experience. It was a pastor's luncheon (hosted by the Democratic Party), which included Ambassador Andrew Young as one of the special guests. As one of our countrys noted living legends in the fight for civil rights, his message was clear, sincere, simple but yet stirring. In short, his message was, "We did it, and you too can do it!" He reminded us that the 60's was a time of civil unrest that brought a diverse group of people together. These people were committed to the idea that change was both possible and imperative. He shared with us that they dared to believe that they could produce a piece of heaven here on earth within their generation and through a commitment to a single cause, openness to diversity, self-sacrifice, strategy and with flexibility that didn't compromise their end objective hey influenced positive change within their generation. After reminding us of this, he then with the wisdom and the love of a grandfather who had been well spent from the many years of his journey; confidently, yet gently transferred the idea of his heart. Here I stand as evidence of the many who did it in my generation, and I stand declaring on all their behalf that you too can do it! You too can do it! It was a timely message for a community whose consistent cry has been, "people and things will never change in this community." To that consistent community cry, Ambassador Andrew Young reminded us that all things are possible to those who believe! You too can do it.
