As Jacksonvilles city government prepares to adopt a budget for fiscal year 2014-15, funding to adequately support Clara White Mission an essential human services in our community will be absent. City Council Finance Committee eliminated funding from the PSG budget Public Service Grant-Supplemental Funding for the operations of the Clara White Mission daily meal program. This means hungry and homeless people on the streets will not have this service. The Clara White Mission annual budget is driven by governmental, church and community support. The City of Jacksonville funding is critical and vital in ensuring real people with real issues have an opportunity to eat a nutritious meal without program stipulations. A dozen long-standing service providers in Duval County along with Clara White Mission, have been eliminated from the list of providers receiving Public Service Grant Funding-Supplemental Funding. Unfortunately, without the $82,011 allocation, this will eliminate the operations of the feeding services at the Clara White Mission. This service is the heart and soul of what Clara White Mission have provided to our community for 110 years. It would be impossible, to rebound from the loss if the funding is not restored, said JuCoby Pittman, CEO/President. Annually, the mission serve over 146,000 meals and through their efforts, the homeless and low-income clients participating in the meals program receive information regarding housing and vocational training programs. To date, over 90% of enrollees in the training program, first learn about the comprehensive programs through their participation in the meals program. Approximately 200 persons are served annually through the Missions housing and vocational training programs. More than 1500 persons have been aided in gaining employment and moved into permanent housing since the inception of these programs. These are individuals that are no longer receiving public assistance and are tax paying citizens. Clara White Mission has been on the frontline prov their value to the City of Jacksonville and need resources to restore and continue their work to the most vulnerable.

We hope other small businesses will follow suit, working with their local utility to help reduce their energy footprint.Ž Were very proud of our commitment to positively impact childrens lives in the gym and by saving energy to protect their future,Ž Campbell said. We worked closely with Tampa Electric Company to reduce energy by replacing lights and adding occupancy sensors throughout the facility.

As a celebration of Cecil Shorts IIIs Backpack Challenge and the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year, the Jacksonville Jaguars hosted a school supply distribution at EverBank Field. Joined by his wife, Chanel, and fellow Jaguars wide receiver, Mike Brown, Shorts distributed backpacks full of supplies to 30 northeast Florida middle school students. The Backpack Challenge was a communitywide effort that encouraged local companies and individuals to help kids start the school year off right. When students dont have what they need to start the school year, it can set them back,Ž said Shorts. I really appreciate the generous contributions of all the companies that participated in the Backpack Challenge. Their contributions will help hundreds of students start this school year with confidence.Ž Organized by the United Way of Northeast Florida, the Backpack Challenge engaged 24 companies in collecting over 5,000 school supplies ranging from binders and pencils to glue sticks and rulers. Bank of America, Ernst & Young, ING Foundation and TD Auto Finance are among the top contributors initially as companies continue to collect supplies through the start of the school year. These supplies will support students through United Ways Achievers For Life program and the Salvation Army We are delighted with the volume of supplies donated,Ž said Michelle Braun, president and CEO of United Way of Northeast Florida. We are so grateful for the number of companies who took part in the Challenge and the thoughtfulness of the many employees who contributed items. The combined efforts demonstrate that good things happen when we live united.Ž Publix Super Markets also participated in the distribution event. In preliminary estimates, Publix raised nearly $20,000 in donations in their Tools for Back to School campaign, where customers and associates donated $5, $7, or $10 at their neighborhood Publix to help purchase supplies to support over 80 classrooms at various Full Service Schools throughout Jacksonville. Publix anticipates that this will provide for nearly 26,000 packs of various supplies to be distributed in September. We are so grateful for the generosity of our customers and associates,Ž said Dwaine Stevens, Publix media and community relations manager. Because of their support, students and teachers in every neighborhood will have the essential tools needed to be successful this academic year.Ž Equipping community-based agencies and programs like Full Service Schools, Achievers For Life, and the Salvation Army helps ensure the long-term academic success of students in our community. Students in Nassau County began the academic year on Aug. 6, followed by students in Clay County on Aug. 12. Duval, Clay, and St. Johns begin Aug. 18. As a result of the generosity of individuals and companies, hundreds of students across a five county region will begin the school year with the tools needed to succeed in the classroom.

It's sometimes hard for parents to teach children to balance this trust with caution. But kids today need to know common-sense rules that can help keep them safe and build the self-confidence they need to handle emergencies. Start with the Basics Make sure your children know their full name, address (city and state), and phone number with area code. Be sure kids know to call 9-1-1 in emer gencies and how to use a public phone. Practice making emergency calls with a make-believe phone. Tell them never to accept rides or gifts from someone they and you don't know well. Teach children to go to a store clerk, security guard, or police officer for help if lost in a mall or store or on the street. Set a good example with your own actions lock doors and windows and see who's there before opening the door. Take time to listen carefully to your children's fears and feelings about people or places that scare them or make them feel uneasy. Tell them to trust their instincts. At School and Play Encourage your children to walk and play with friends, not alone. Tell them to avoid places that could be dangerous vacant buildings, alleys, playgrounds or parks with broken equipment and litter Teach children to settle arguments with words, not fists, and to walk away when others are arguing. Remind them that taunting and teasing can hurt friends and make enemies. Make sure your children are taking the safest routes to and from school, stores, and friends' houses. Walk the routes together and point out places they could go for help. Encourage kids to be alert in the neighborhood, and tell an adult you, a teacher, a neighbor, a police officer about anything they see that doesn't seem quite right. Check out the school's policies on absent children are parents called when a child is absent? Check out daycare and after-school programs look at certifications, staff qualifications, rules on parent permission for field trips, reputation in the community, parent participation, and policies on parent visits. Safety Wanted Suspect At 5:16 a.m., an armed robbery occurred at a convenience store. An unknown black male suspect entered the business armed with a handgun and demanded money and cigarettes. Once the suspect obtained the property, he exited the business. Witnesses described the handgun as black with an orange tip but all felt it was real. Anyone who has any information about the identity or location of this 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. One of Two Armed Burglars Arrested At approximately 8:45 p.m., 20year-old Tamaries Delquan Richardson along with 20-year-old Damian R. Green and three or four other male subjects were in a silver PT Cruiser riding through the parking area of an apartment complex. The vehicle approached a 34-yearold female victim and a 23-year-old male victim as the pair walked to the female victims vehicle. The female victim recognized the males inside the vehicle and saw a firearm in Richardson's hand as he got out of the vehicle. Richardson approached the male victim and threatened to shoot him, then threatened to shoot the female victim. After pointing the gun, Richardson passed the gun to Green, who held it in his hand. Green also threatened to shoot the pair and indicated that he didn't care who he had to shoot, including police if they showed up. During this time, the female victim retrieved a tire iron from her trunk. Richardson then took the gun back from Green and pointed the weapon at her threatening again to shoot her. An unknown female yelled to the group and the group of males, including Green and Richardson, and walked to the center of the apartment complex. The female victim immediately called 911 when she lost sight of the group. When Police arrived, Green was found at one of the apartments and a check revealed that he was on felony probation for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Green was positively identified as being in possession of the firearm along with threatening to shoot the victims. He was placed under arrest for aggravated assault with a firearm. Green was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, violation of probation and armed trespassing, because the management had previously trespassed him from the property. Green was released from Florida State Prison in August 2013 on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Police say Richardson was released from prison in May, 2014 on weapons charges stemming back from 2012 and was considered to be armed and dangerous. At this time, Richardson has not been located, but police obtained a warrant for his arrest. Charges on Richardson include possession of a firearm by convicted felon, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and violation of probation. Three Burglars Caught in the Act The male victim was arriving home and noticed two men inside his vehicle in his driveway. When the victim was seen returning home, the two men fled on foot towards a white Toyota and got inside. The victim called 911 and told dispatchers the location of the suspect vehicle. Police soon approached the white Toyota and immediately noticed that the suspects were bending down in an attempt to keep themselves from being seen. When asked about the vehicles owner, the men stated it belonged to a man named Wolcott and that he was walking around the neighborhood somewhere. Another officer made contact with a man who matched the description of the vehicles owner Jay Calcedo and asked what he was doing out at that time. The man identified as 20-ear-old Brandon Wolcott, told officers several stories as to why he was in the area but eventually admitted they were burglarizing vehicles. A subsequent search of the white Toyota produced multiple burglary tools and various stolen items. Thanks to the observant resident providing police with detailed information about the suspects, these three burglars Wolcott, 19-year-old Andre Applewhite, and 18-year-old Jay Calcedo were charged with burglary of a conveyance, larceny, and possession of burglary tools. Additionally, the men were charged with violation of probation due to all of them being on active probation. Damian Green Tamaries Richardson Brandon Wolcott Andre Applewhite On the Lookout!

This years Catfish Festival is about to get a whole lot more brassy, now that The Distinguished Men of Brass will be serving as Grand Marshals. The upbeat brass and percussion ensemble h precision in movement and sound. The members include: Kayraynard Lawrence, Nathaniel Gordon, Ronnie Laing, Rickey Williams, Darius Boone, Desmond Boone, Rico Clark, Ernest Elmore, Giovoni Gilbert, and Donald Scott. d Mo is lead by Desmond Boone and occasionally use an MC to keep the shows flow consistent with our high energy. d Mo Brass was originally The Mystic Sheiks of Morocco for a number of years at a local theme park in Tampa but circumstances beyond our control gave us the opportunity to reinvent ourselves and take on a new look, new sound, and new attitude,they revealed. We essentially took a bad situation and tuned it into a new dream. After a year of hard work and determination we sent off our information to the Americas Got Talent show and was selected to perform for the celebrity judges. They performed April 2012 and received a thunderous applause standing ovation. They were then flown to Vegas to do the second round of the auditions. We took to the hotel's loading dock for secret rehearsals and it proved beneficial as we were once again on our way to the next round of auditions, they said. New Jerseys Performing Arts Center is where the live tapings were held and d Mo Brass were selected to open the show. That was a great confidence booster as everyone knows the shows opener is the largest act. According to the group, ratings spiked to the highest in 12 weeks of programming. The audience spoke and we were not selected to move on to the later rounds,they recalled. That did not stop d mo brass as all of America did not feel the same way. We have been hired to performed all over the US to include, 3 Las Vegas trips, 2 trips to Tennessee, North Dakota, Arizona, New York, GA and all over FL. We have also performed half time shows for The Orlando Magic and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. d mo Brass has shared the stage with the one and only Sir Elton John at the Walmart Associates Convention in Arkansas really proving that they are a unique and entertaining talent. June of this year, they performed during the opening act for the IIFA International Indian Film Association to the sum of over 800 million viewers. They concluded:There are more opportunities ahead of us and we will guarantee that everyone viewing will be thoroughly entertained. PAGE THESTAR AUGUST 2014 Coastal Georgia Chef to Represent USA at Terra Madre in Italy LOCALNEWSSlow Food USA has tapped Chef Matthew Raiford, Assistant Professor of Culinary Arts and Program Coordinator, School of Business and Public Affairs, to be a U.S. delegate for the 2014 Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto, an international food and farming conference, in Turin, Italy during October 23-27. Additionally, he will serve as an official U.S. chef in the Terra Madre Kitchen. The biennial conference brings together delegates from more than 130 countries to display the diversity of food from around the globe and to network small-scale farmers and artisans who share the principles of good, clean and fair. This year has been designated the International Year of the Family Farmer, so the conference theme is food diversity as an alternative to industrial agriculture. Its an honor to be recognized both personally and culturally by being the U.S. chef-presenter at Terra Madre, Chef Raiford said. It also gives me great pleasure to have come full circle, back to my hometown, and be featured for the work that I am doing now. His connection to the family land in Brunswick runs deep. The land he plows and plants with his sister Althea, Gilliard Farms, has been in his family since 1874 and is recognized as a Georgia Centennial Family Farm. The farm is also organic chemicals have never been used to grow crops there. He and his sister are both military veterans (Chef Raiford is a 10-year Army veteran with three tours in Saudi Arabia for Operation Desert Storm and Althea is a 20-year Navy veteran), so one of their first connections was the Farmer Veteran Coalition, founded after 9/11 in Davis, California, to provide education, mentoring, scholarships and grants. The duo are convinced that farming is yet another way to serve their country and they advocate farming as a career of choice, particularly for veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder after returning to civilian life. Although trained in classic French cuisine at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, Chef Raiford has a personal affinity for Mediterranean flavors, a splash of the Caribbean and the connection to the Gullah heritage and African American Foodways. Im into just caught, just harvested, farm fresh, delectable, decadent, and whole-animal consumption from snout to tail, he laughed. For Terra Madre, I am going to be creating dishes using Ark of Taste products from the U.S. and Italy. Ark of Taste is a Slow Food Foundation program to identify and champion distinctive foods that could face extinction, promoting agricultural biodiversity and celebrating the culinary heritage and cultural food traditions around the globe. American examples range from artisanal aged apple brandy originally distilled in the American Colonies by such notable farmers as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington to yellow-meated watermelon grown by the Tohono Oodham and Hopi in Arizona. For his Terra Madre menu, Chef Raiford will be preparing Bradford Watermelon BBQ Sauce, Whiskey Pulled Pork, Buttermilk Biscuits, Reezy Peezy (Sea Island Red Peas with Carolina Gold Rice), and Sweet & Sour Shooters made with American Rye Whiskey syrup and Sorrento Lemon from Italy. His experiment with growing the Carolina Gold Rice was featured in a recent New York Times article about cooking rice by food writer Kim Severson. In describing Chef Raifords role as the featured U.S. chef in Terra Madre Kitchen, Jovan Sage, Director of Network Engagement for Slow Food USA, wrote in mid-July, we believe Matthew Raiford is an important voice in representing the diverse U.S. food movement to the international communityTaking charge of the ovens are 40 chefs and cooks who sustain food communities through their daily work, transforming local and regional products with inspirational creativity. It will be a melting pot of languages and culinary artserving up dishes that best represent the native countries of the networks cooks. The Distinguished Men of Brass to hit Brunswick

This week second-year head coach Gus Bradley named seven-year veteran Chad Henne over rookie Blake Bortles. No surprise. The seven-year veteran has had a solid preseason. And it makes sense to go to Henne. Trying to improve on a dismal 4-12 season, go with the veteran with For our team, Chads playing well, Bradley said. Hes playing fast right now. Hes showed it all during training camp and during the preseason games, so were excited about him. Were pleased with both of them. I think gressing nicely. We want to continue that with both to them, Bradley said. BRADLEY WEIGHS IN ON STORM JOHNSON I think Storm Johnson its getting the like weight. What position does Johnson need to play? In college, he played at 215. What weight is best for him? I think hes goJust learning the offense and the protection. We hope he just lets go and goes and plays. The running back position you know the reads, you know the footwork. I think the biggest challenge for a lot of the rookies is him that were intrigued by him.Bolt ends season after setting world indoor 100m recordJamaican superstar Usain Bolt continues to prove his dominance on the track by leaving his competitors in the dust. Bolt set a world indoor 100-meter record recently in Warsaw, Poland. Bolt bolted past the competition with a blazing time of 9.98 .35 seconds ahead of fellow Jamaican sprinter Sheldon Mitchell. Usain Bolt has been suffering through an injury-plagued season and set the world record in only his second individual race of the season. Following his stellar performance, Bold has opted to bring an early end to his campaign. According to a statement from the organizers of the Weltklasse Diamond League, Bolts coach, sprinters performances on his comeback from a foot injury that delayed the start to this season. Mills feels it is now time to shut it down while he is healthy and injury free with a view on his preparations for the 2015 season. The six-time Olympic champion will resume training in October in preparation to retain his world 100m and 200m crownsbolt at the World Championships in Beijing, China next year. Bolt, the worlds fastest man, has competed only four times this year: he competed twice at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow anchoring Jamaica to 4x100m relay gold, on the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro in the Mano a Manorace where he won the 100m in 10.06 sec and then in Warsaw, world best for the 100m. Patrick Magyar, the Weltklasse meeting director, said: Usains body has delivered tremendous performances over the last years. But, it is a body and not a machine. If an athlete of that level and his coach feel more rest is needed, we are certainly not going to question this and fully support this decision. Usain St. Leo Bolt is widely regarded as the fastest person the 100 meters and 200 meters world records since fully automatic time measurements became mandatory in 1977. Bolt is the reigning Olympic champion in the 100 meter, 200 meter, and 4100 meter relays.
