In November 2017 all three w re-elected for their second terms. BRUNSWICK MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS SWORN INCome November, Floridians will consider whether to restore voting rights to people convicted of serious crimes who have completed their sentence. An estimate 1.5 million Floridians who have completed their sentences after a felony conviction remain disenfranchised, campaigners for the constitutional amendment say. The Florida Department of State approved Wednesday inclusion of the Second Chances Voting Restoration Act initia tive on the ballot for the elections in November after the number of approved signatures surpassed the required 766,200. Most all states deny incarcerated people the right to vote, but Florida, an often crucial state in presidential elections, is one of only four to not automatically restore the franchise to people after they have completed their sentence. The former sports doctor who admitted molesting some of the nations top gymnasts for years under the guise of medi cal treatment was sentenced Wednesday to 40 to 175 years in prison by a judge who proudly told him, I just signed your death warrant. The sentence capped a remarkable seven-day hearing in which more than 150 women and girls offered statements about being abused by Larry Nassar, a physician who was renowned for treating athletes at the sports highest levels. Many confronted him face to face in the Michigan courtroom. It is my honor and privilege to sentence you. You do not deserve to walk outside a prison ever again. You have done nothing to control those urges and anywhere you walk, de struction will occur to those most vulnerable, Judge Rosema rie Aquilina said.Judge Rules in Favor of Obama Rule That Will Help Low Income Families A federal judge has ruled in favor of the Obama rule to be executed starting January 1, 2018. The rule, created on Obama-era, was intended to separate regions of concentrated poverty in two dozen metro regions, from Atlanta and Charlotte to San Diego and Honolulu. It would work by considering the rental costs in particular neigh borhoods, as opposed to averaging it to over a whole metro politan area. Through that, it is much easier for low-income families to afford better apartments in a well-to-do neighbor hood with good schools, higher-paying jobs, and lower crime rate. Previously, public rental assistance for low-income families usually allow them to reside only in segregated communities with high-poverty rates.

The key issue for the appeal as stated by Browns appeals attorney William Kent is whether the trial judge committed reversible error when he dismissed a disabled veteran juror (Juror #13). The juror told the judge that he had prayed for guidance and been told by the Holy Spirit that Congresswoman Brown was not guilty. In essence, the juror was removed because he used and openly professed his faith during trial. Religious leaders are becoming inter ested. The alliance of ministers will be represented by Charles Truncale who will put together an amicus (friend of the court) brief He recently accompanied Corrine to a Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration in Clay County last week. He states that what the judge did was an assault on Christianity and says it is outrageous and resulted in an unjust verdict. This week, Corrine Brown lost her bid to stay out of prison as well as her request to report a month later. She is expected to report no later than noon on Jan. 29. She still can pursue the appeal bond to remain free issue up to the Supreme Court. Her main appeal case presented to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Georgia concerning the removal of the juror by the judge could be a major issue with enormous consequences. Pastors interested are being asked to weigh in and/ or become a part of the group forming to challenge the courts view on the main issue. Attorney Truncale wrote information for dissemination in which he explains the process and issue. The cor respondence stated, An amicus is a group or organization which has an interest in an appeal and an issue presented in the appeal. A group or organiza tion which has an interest tion with the court of ap peals along with a copy of its proposed brief (a brief is a written motion set ting forth legal arguments) and request permission to appear in the appeal as a friend of the court (am icus curiae means friend of the court).

We are enraged that Donald Trump, who garnered the presidency through his birther inquisition, questioning President Barack Obamas legitimacy and identity, continues to display vulgar bigotry, hatred and racism. He, 360 days, literally, attempting to turning around the Obama Administrations policies to support the disenfranchising of non-White Americans and nations. Equally, many of us are appalled by the silence from the African-American faith pulpits and megachurch auditoriums with messages of deliverance, hope and prosperity in the face of this adversity and darkness. If weve ever needed a Word from the Lord, as a community, we sure do need it now. Yet as my grandmother would say, you can hear a rat piss on cotton from those leaders who have such stark messages that will free you from lustful, immoral and heartwrenching sin that will send you to the hell. Dr. King was a global humanitarian, yet his primary calling was as a prophet. He used his prophetic voices to spare not and cry aloud, addressing the concerns across racial identity, leading the charge for equality for the least advantaged. King, and his contemporaries, jailed in Birmingham understood, that they werent just wrestling against being bitten by dogs, hosed down and lynchings but there were principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places. And, those high places social policy. In the book, Where Have All The Prophets Gone, Marvin McMickle reminds preachers that they have no right to preach pointing out and pointing away from themselves. I contend that preachers all need to point a examine their calling. Jesus was a prophet who came to set at liberty them that were bruised. message of faith without works. Sitting in a shithole because of injustice, Dr. King pens, The Negro Is Your Brother, commonly known as the Letter from the Birmingham Jail. About the letter, McMickle says King preaches from the prophetic text and becomes a prophet in our midst. In the absence of any of the modern day celebrated and proclaimed apostles, (arch) bishops, and right-reverends having a prophetic word, in response to the recent Trump debacle, we will let King preach for them this Sunday morning. live with the narrow, provincial outside agitator idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds. King refers to himself, Jesus and other great reformers as extremists. So, the question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be? Will we be extremists for hate or for love? In that dramatic scene on Calvarys hill three men were for the same crime two were extremists for immorality. Jesus Christ, was an extremist for love and thereby rose above his environment. Perhaps the nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists. And I believe this creative extremism fused in love should compel clergy to come out from their silence and stand up for justice, for equality and inhumanity. In other words, silence in the face of such demeaning rhetoric and practices from the White House is ungodly and demands a godly and bold response.

JANUARY 27, 2018 THE STAR PAGE 3 Impactful African-American Inductees in The National Inventors Hall of Fame Since the founding of the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF), more than 500 visionary men and women, who conceived, patented, and advanced the greatest technological achievements of our nation, have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Historical innovators like Thomas Jennings and Garrett Morgan paved the way beyond science and technology by becoming advocates for AfricanAmericans. Today, pioneers like Victor B. Lawrence continue to advance technologies and racial and economic inequalities. Thomas Jennings, Dry Scouring (First African-American U.S. Patent) Thomas Jennings invented a process he called American to be granted a U.S. patent in 1821. His dry-scouring process was a predecessor to todays dry-cleaning methods. His success as a businessman and patent holder helped him become a leader for civil rights in New York City. When Jennings died, Frederick Douglass wrote about his death. He noted the importance of the patent Jennings received and that the patent recognized him as a citizen of the United States, a designation at the time that shocked many. Garrett Morgan, Gas Mask & Three-way Garrett Morgan was a self-educated black man who produced a series of successful inventions well-known invention was the safety hood a forerunner of the gas mask. In 1923, he patented one of his best-known inventions, the three-way to General Electric, which developed the electric version of the product. Morgan became an black fraternities in the country at Clevelands Western Reserve University. Victor B. Lawrence, Signal Processing in Telecommunications Victor Lawrence improved transmission for the modern Internet with his invention of signal processing in telecommunications. His invention has stimulated the growth of the global Internet and advanced data encoding, modem technology, silicon ship design, ATM switching and protocols, DSL and digital video. As a key player in Internet technology, Lawrence advocates bringing Internet access to the worlds poorest countries. optic cable along the west coast of Africa. For more information on African-American Inductees in the National Inventors Hall of inductee/. Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson issued the following statement calling for a federal safety review of Brightline passenger trains following two fatalities and an accident I join with Florida Senators Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson in calling on Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao to conduct a thorough investigation into the fatal accidents involving Floridas Brightline high-speed rail service. As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committees Railroad Subcommittee, I am especially concerned and determined to seek solutions on how to prevent these tragic incidents. On the morning of Friday, January 12, committee members joined me on a Brightline train for a preview voyage from West Palm Beach to Fort Lauderdale. That very evening a woman was struck by a train. Since then, a second fatality occurred, and on January 19, a person was struck and hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. For three years before the Brightline launch, I had several discussions with representatives from All Aboard Florida about safety, which was my top committee priority then and continues to be now. As a member of the Railroad Subcommittee, I am committed to using every available resource Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson Calls for a Brightline Safety Review New Lawsuit Filed Against U.S. Department of Homeland Security in Response to Removal of Temporary Protective Status for Haitian Immigrants The U.S. Department of Homeland Securitys decision to rescind the Temporary Protective Status (TPS) designation for Haitian immigrants discriminates against immigrants of color, in violation of the today on behalf of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) by the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. The lawsuit claims that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), former Acting DHS Secretary Elaine C. Duke, and current DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielson took irrational and discriminatory government action, denying Haitian immigrants their right to due process and equal protection under the Fifth Amendment. The NAACP, acting on behalf of its Haitian members who are TPS protected, argues that DHS intended to discriminate against Haitian immigrants living in the United States because of their race and national origin. This is a simple case. Our democracy rests on the bedrock principle that every person is equal before the law. Governmental decisions that target people based on racial discrimination violate our Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Department of Homeland Security to rescind TPS status for Haitian immigrants was infected by racial discrimination. Every step taken by the Department to reach this decision reveals that far from a rational and fact-based determination, this decision was driven by calculated, determined and intentional discrimination against Haitian immigrants. The action by the Department of Homeland Security to rescind TPS status for Haitian immigrants is clearly racially motivated, said Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO. The U.S. Constitution prohibits singling out certain immigrants for harsh treatment based on their skin color and/or ethnicity. But more than that, basic fairness militates against this draconian action taken by DHS under the direction of President Trump. The lawsuit seeks to enjoin DHSs November 2017 decision to rescind Temporary Protective egregious departure from the TPS statutes requirements and the intent to discriminate on the basis of race. The lawsuit also asks the Court to declare that DHS violated the United States Constitution and the rule of law in rescinding the Haitian TPS, and to declare the action void and without legal force. As evidence of the intent to discriminate, the lawsuit cites public reporting that DHS sought crime data on Haitians with TPS, as well as information on how many Haitian nationals were data on Haitian TPS designees trades on false anti-Black stereotypes about criminality and the planned rescission. The complaint further alleges that President Trumps public hostility toward immigrants of color was a contributing factor in the decision to rescind Haitian TPS. For example, in a recently reported White House meeting with several U.S. Senators, Trump disparaged a draft immigration plan that protected people from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries, and noted his preference for immigrants from mostly white European countries. Earlier in 2017, the President suggested that Haitians all have AIDS, upon learning that 15,000 Haitians had received visas to enter the United States. He reportedly asked, Why do we need more Haitians? Its disheartening to see the Haitian community targeted and mistreated in this way, but it also is not surprising, said Raymond Audain, Senior shameful and persistent pattern of conduct by this Administration in which racial stereotypes drive policy decisions. Protective Status in 2010 as part of the 'HSDUWPHQW\003RI\003+RPHODQG\003HFXULW\\000V\003HruRUWV\003WR\003 assist the country after it was struck by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake, one of the deadliest earthquakes in history. Haitis TPS designations have been extended multiple times due to many factors, including multiple hurricanes and a cholera outbreak. On November 20, 2017, the DHS announced its plans to terminate temporary protective status for Haiti, which would go into extend TPS designation for Haitian immigrants. Our great nation fought a civil war to establish the bedrock principle that the government may not discriminate against any person, whether citizen or non-citizen, based on that persons race or ethnicity. The NAACP stands ready to challenge any violation of that principle, as todays action clearly demonstrates, said Bradford M. Berry, General Counsel of the NAACP. In The Florida Star issue dated January 6 January 12 (Volume 67, Number 39) the story regarding State Representative Kimberly Daniels stated her churchstatus but never actually went into foreclosure. Retraction As part of a bizarre social media trend, teens taking the Tide Pod Challenge are posting videos where they put water soluble Tide detergent pods in their mouths, putting themselves at high risk for serious health consequences or death. The nations emergency attempt chewing or swallowing detergent or similar chemical products. Parents are told to keep these products out of the reach of young children who might mistake the colorful spongy pods for candy or chewable toys, said Paul Kivela, MD, FACEP, president of ACEP. For older children, teens, or anyone else, to voluntarily poison yourself in search of internet fame is ill-advised and dangerous. The internet fad puts teens at risk for rashes, severe internal burns and and scarring from detergent chemicals. In some instances, injuries can result in patients that require feeding through a tube in their their abdominal wall or breathing through a hole in their throat. Eating detergent products can cause choking, trouble breathing, vomiting, abdominal pain, tearing of the stomach lining, sinus damage, neurological problems, and even death. Please use these products as intended and directed on the label. If you, or somebody you know, ingests detergent chemicals you should contact a poison control center and take them to the ER immediately, said Dr. Kivela.

We are confident that this partnership will also yield positive opportunities for our current students preparing to teach the next generation of scholars as education professionals. Lawson, a Jacksonville resident, added, We believe we are standing in front of some of the best and brightest students. We believe in FAMUs proven track record and the power of KIPP working together to produce more highly skilled students and helping to make their dreams come true. As a KIPP college partner, FAMU is committing to developing programs and support structures to address the college persistence challenges students from underserved communities often face on their path to earning college degrees. FAMU and KIPP will work together to develop systems and processes to assist KIPP students with FAMUs college application and recruitment process, including assistance with financial aid paperwork and scholarship identification; pre-enrollment outreach to ensure a smooth transition to college; and the promotion and enrollment in pre-college opportunities. In addition to myriad benefits now being offered to KIPP Jacksonville students, the KIPP Jacksonville campus will be a resource for enhancing FAMUs teacher preparation program and provide career opportunities for FAMU students studying education. We are honored to partner with FAMU, a historic institution that like KIPP, values diversity in thought, perspective, and culture, said Dr. Jennifer Brown, KIPP Jacksonville Executive Director.

Attorney Truncale also wrote, We have grave concerns regarding the fairness of Congresswoman Browns trial and, in particular, the hostile targeting and removal of a juror on grounds of his religious expression. As you may know, during deliberations, it appeared Congresswoman Brown may be acquitted or the jury would deadlock. The government prosecutors then moved the court to dismiss Juror #13 for expressing his faith in God. At all times, this juror indicated that he would assess the evidence presented and base his decision on the evidence alone. This juror was inclined to acquit Congresswoman Brown. William Kent argue that the ruling the judge made violated the jurors First Amendment right of freedom of religion. A ruling for Brown may ultimately cause her conviction to be reversed and set aside and a new trial granted. This can also cause a judgement to be made to free Corrine during her new trial. A ruling against her can then be appealed up to the U.S. Supreme Court. To be heard, a petition to the Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari. A Petition for Writ Certiorari is a formal request to the Supreme Court to review a lower courts ruling. that will go to a pool of Supreme Court clerks. They will review all of the documents and provide a summary for justices to view. The clerks will make a recommendation of whether the case should be taken up by the court.

The Jacksonville Jaguars now will have the offseason to think about what they could have 15 minutes of the game that eventually cost them a date with history. New England quarterback Tom Brady threw two fourth-quarter touchdowns to Danny Amendola, the latter coming with 2:48 left in the game, as the Patriots came back from a 10-point feat the Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, propelling New England to its NFL-record 10th Super Bowl appearance. Jacksonville, looking for pearance in franchise history, was poised to do so when it held a 20-10 lead early in the fourth quarter, but its offense went stagnant in the land moved the ball at will against the normally staunch Jaguars defense. The Jaguars are now 0-3 all-time in conference championship games. I think it is hard when you and you come in here, said Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone after the game. I think if you think about it and the more I think about it the more it will hurt. The more it will weigh on my mind about what we could have done better. Everyone in that locker room is thinking what could we have done a better job of including me. So it is tough. What makes this game even tougher to swallow is that, for 45 minutes, Jacksonville did almost everything right in trying to pull off a near-impossible upset: They possessed the ball for almost 30 minutes in the the game out of Bradys hands; Blake Bortles was with a touchdown pass as he led the Jaguars to two touchdown drives on consecutive possessions in the second quarter; and lastly, Jacksonvilles defense continually created pressure on Brady, sacking him a total of three times and getting hits on him on many other occasions as he released the ball. I mean, guys were upset, said Bortles. It was not what everybody expected outside of the country and popular belief. That room fully expected to win this game and I think everybody is shocked, disappointed and upset whatever you want to call it. The fourth quarter proved to be Jacksonvilles undoing, though it started very auspiciously. Josh Lambo of the game, a 43-yarder, on the second play of the quarter to give Jacksonville a 20-10 lead. On the ensuing drive, linebacker Myles Jack made a stellar play to force a turnover, chasing down the Patriots running back Dion Lewis on a long pass play a pass thrown by Amendola on a trick play before stripping the ball and recovering it in one motion at the Jacksonville 33-yard line. Unfortunately for the Jaguars, Jack, who got up from off the ground after his strip and recovery to return the fumble, was ruled down by contact, despite replays showing he was not touched down by a Patriots player while on the ground after the recovery. What could have been a touchdown return and a 2710 became the beginning of the end for Jacksonville. After the Jaguars went three-and-out, the Patriots yards, including converting a 3rd-and-18 on a 21-yard completion from Brady to Amendola. That combination hooked up on a 9-yard touchdown to end the drive to cut the Jaguars lead to 20-17 with 8:44 left. Two possessions later, the Patriots took the lead, with the game-winning drive sparked by a 20-yard punt return by Amendola to give New England the ball at the Jacksonville 30-yard line. a pass in the back of the end and was able to keep his feet inbounds while falling to the turf to give New England its the second quarter. In the fourth quarter, Brady was 9-of-14 for 138 yards and those two touchdowns to Amendola. Also, those numbers came while without the services of All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski, who suffered a concussion in the second quarter and was ruled out for the rest of the game. [Brady] is a good player, said Jaguars safety Tashaun Gipson. If you give him time, he will pick you apart. He is the greatest quarterback to ever play this game. You can never have a safe lead with 12 at the helm. Jacksonville, after falling mounted two consecutive touchdown drives to silence the Gillette Stadium crowd. On the second play of the second quarter, Bortles found tight end Marcedes pass from four yards out to give the Jaguars a 7-3 lead. On their next drive, Bortles completed all four of his passes for 47 yards and running back Leonard Fournette capped it off with a four-yard touchdown run for a 14-3 lead. New England scored just a minute before halftime, as running back James White scored from a yard out to cut Jacksonvilles lead to 14-10 at the intermission. As disappointing of an end to the season the Jaguars suffered on Sunday, veterans on the squad are hoping that this seasons magical ride to the conference title game is just a sign of bigger things to come. I told the guys to keep their head up and use this as fuel, said Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell. We a lot of respect going into next year, and its going to be a little harder. We just have to use this as motivation to prepare for it and be prepared for next year.

PHOTO BY ANDREW ECCLES FAMILY FEATURES Making sure your kids are ready to take on the world as adults is arguably one of the most important roles of a parent. Now, more than ever, education is the foundation of that preparation. As technology continues to evolve, its important that kids are learning, and also developing skills in highdemand areas, such as science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). A strong foundation of STEM learning is an important tool for the future, no matter the career path. The experts at the Americas Farmers Grow Rural Education program, spon sored by the Monsanto Fund, are aiming to raise awareness of the benefits for todays students, and partnering with farmers to award STEM grants that enhance programming at rural public school districts. While nearly everyone has heard about STEM education in one way or another, some people dont understand its true value in school and in the workplace. Its cutting edge. When it comes to innova tion, theres no disputing that STEM is pro gressing changes throughout society. STEM elds are at the forefront of nearly all of the exciting modern developments, from the latest digital gadgets enabled by technology to ground-breaking scienti c research. Another bene t of this progressive environment is the nancial and social impact on the community. Skilled STEM workers are driving trends and innovations, which can create jobs and boost the econo my. All of these attributes appeal to eager, young graduates looking to make their mark. Its where the jobs are. e U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics published a report on the 10 fastest-growing occupations through 2026. In the report, 100 percent of the jobs fall into STEM categories, from the No. Support STEM LearningAs a parent, there are many ways you can support STEM learning in your local school district. Its little secret that school district budgets are continually shrinking, so an important way you can encourage STEM learning is by exploring funding opportunities that can bolster STEM programming. Initiatives like Americas Farmers Grow Rural Education focus on bringing STEM education to rural school districts. Eligible farmers can nominate their local public school districts for the grants, which help enhance STEM education. Schools then participate in an application process to compete for $10,000 and $25,000 grants. One school district in Royal, Washington, is utilizing the program to raise academic achievement for students in the classroom and on state-mandated math tests. The Americas Farmers Grow Rural Education grant allows teachers to extend learning for students, especially those who are learning English as a second language, who need intervention but lack the technology at home. An important learning barrier is being removed through the use of Chromebooks and Kajeet, a system that allows internet connectivity but also has a filter to ensure the technology is limited to academic use.

Its a chance to make a real di erence. STEM elds can drive true social change. Researching and uncovering new treatments, or even the cure, for a debilitating disease is only possible with skills gained through STEM learning. However, science isnt the only STEM eld that brings opportunities to make a di erence in others lives. A career in technology could mean helping a child hear or see for the rst time using a specially constructed device, for example. Its a stepping stone to dozens of industries. While STEM learning lends itself well to a fairly large scope of career choices, that list is ever-expanding. In fact, most of todays graduates nd themselves hard-pressed to secure a position without some STEM training. Consider a seemingly distant eld such as fashion, for example, where digital technologies enable design sketching, mathematic skills factor into creating patterns and some engineering knowledge is necessary for designing a runway show. Beyond the less obvious career choices, STEM learning provides practical experience with methods of problem solving that can be applied to virtually any aspect of personal or professional life. It's helpful in developing additional skills. e speci c training involved in STEM education can help lead to certain career paths that will be available in the future. However, it can also help with more general skills your child can use immediately. Students typically follow processes in STEM programming and training, such as the scienti c method, that give them a chance to work with other students, test hypotheses and nd solutions. ese challenges can o en help in developing teamwork, leadership and other collaborative life skills.
