Vote them out! Enough! Never Again! chanted the crowds, led by students who had been personally touched by the devastation of gun violence. As more than half-a-million people cheered and wept with them, these teens delivered this message: We will not give up and we will bring about change. We will vote out legislators for gun reform laws and we will never forget. The youth came to Washington D.C. on Saturday, March 24, to express their rage and need for change. They spoke with passion and deter mination, focusing on thoughtful solutions to gun violence changes they want to be immediately addressed by Congress. The teens shed and heartbreak, tales of lost siblings, friends and classmates. The students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School organized a rally of hundreds of thousands of people in Washington D.C. They encouraged their peers to register to vote in the 2018 mid-term elec tions and to work to bring about an adjustment in the attitudes of legisla tors. Their message was one of hope that stricter gun-control laws can end the two decades of shootings which have taken place across the US in schools, concerts, movie theatres and on the streets. They are seeking ceive campaign contributions from the NRA. They want an end to stu dent nightmares of a shooting tak ing place while she or he is in class. They do not want to arm teachers; instead they want a safe environment in which to learn and safety on the streets as students travel back and forth to school. Adults who attended the March for Our Lives were in awe of the stu dents who possessed the composure to stand before more than 500,000 people to share their feelings and message: We wont sit down and be quiet and wait our turn. Now is the time to create change.

Lee We may look at an afterschool program as, not so important. However in all reality, it is extremely important. In todays society, and in our ever changing world that we live in. We as parents, grandparents, and caregivers, need to take a closer look at how very important, it is, for an afterschool program. Lets take a look at a few, reasons, why afterschool programs are important. One, it provides a safe haven for our children. With parents busy work schedule, having to be away from home in order to provide for their fami lies, an afterschool program is the perfect place for their child or children. Because of an after school program, parents do not have to worry if their child, or children are safe or not, because they are in the care of responsible caregivers, making sure of their safety. Two, homework assistance is offered, as well as tutoring.

The musical and scriptural celebration of Stephon Clark was interrupted by his emotional brother Stevante, who hugged and kissed the casket, led the crowd in chants of his brothers name and inter jected as others spoke. The Rev. Al Sharpton hugged and consoled him and told the crowd not to judge how families grieve. This brother could be any one of us, so let them express and grieve, Sharpton said as he deliv ered the eulogy with Stevante Clark clutching him around the neck. We are proud of them for standing up for justice. Hundreds of mourners lined up at Bayside of South Sacramento Church Thursday for the fu-neral of 22-year-old Stephon Clark.

We are on the precipice of the en-US spring season that begins with observance of the festival of en-US Easter. Devout Christians hail the Easter season, also known as en-US Resurrection day in more modern circles as the MOST HOLY en-US season. Its revered as more holy than the birth of Christ.en-US Easter has been the subject of debate for many that proen-US -en-US fess to be Christian for many decades and it would be wise en-US to decipher some of the facts surrounding the festival. Easter en-US is a festival that pagans celebrated long before the birth of en-US Christ. This festival is welcomed on the spring equinox and en-US the pagan practice has been associated with the return of the en-US en-US ity goddess Ostara ;; whose arrival signals budding plants, the en-USbirth of babies and animals. The names of Eostre and Ostara en-US are synonymous and have been used interchangeably with en-US en-US commonly known and practiced in Wiccan circles. The folken-US -en-US lore surrounding the Easter Bunny came to the U.S. sometime en-US in the 18th century. The Easter Bunny has also been traced en-US to having origins with German Lutherans. The bunny would en-US examine the eggs to determine if a child was good or bad en-US as the season of Eastertide (the Easter season) commenced.en-US Not surprisingly, the coloring of eggs is a practice that been-US -en-US gan with a pagan ritual tied to the spring equinox. However, en-US it has been adopted by Christian Churches as tradition. Orthoen-US -en-US dox and Eastern Catholic churches embraced the tradition of en-US en-US eggs were colored red to signify the shed blood of Jesus. Its en-US shell represented Christs entombment, and the cracking of the en-US shell was symbolic of His emergence on Resurrection day. In en-US addition, the church would encourage parishioners to abstain en-US from eating eggs during the forty weeks of Lent (the period en-US from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday the day before Easter en-US Sunday). During this period, believers are encouraged to fast, en-US en-US For the faithful in Christian circles, Easter/Resurrection Sunen-US -en-US day is a time of rejoicing while celebrating Christs victorious en-US reign over death and hell. In defeating death, those who believe en-US in Jesus as Saviour embrace the gift of eternal life. While the en-US birth of Christ signaled salvation has come to earth, His resurrecen-US -en-US tion is evidence that a heavenly home is secured for the faithful.en-US en-US who observe this most sacred event a happy Resurrection Day!

PAGE 4 THE STAR MARCH 31, 2018 By Avis Thomas-Lester Urban News ServiceKune Gueye came from Senegal to Nashville for a better life, but she had to overcome yards of red tape to earn her American dream. To make a living, she turned to a skill she had honed over years of practice in her homeland braiding hair. With a strong back and a talent for creating beautiful styles, combs and hair oils, Gueye began braiding at her Louisville, Kentucky, home frequently working 12-hour days. Within weeks, she was able to pay her bills and send money to her family back home. Years later, Gueye moved into a shop. She was married and had three children by then and wanted to expand. She was working in her salon Kine Hair Braiding one day when an inspector knocked. She told me she was from the state Board of Cosmetologyand that I was not allowed to do hair without a license, Gueye said. I told her I had been braiding for years, and I did not know you had to have a license. Gueye and other braiders in Kentucky won the right to braid without a license when Republican Governor Matt Bevin signed a law in April to exempt them from the cosmetology school and license requirement. Nebraskas legislature passed a similar measure in March. These victories aside, braiders in several states still battle regulations that require them to undergo up to 2,100 hours of instruction at cosmetology schools. These can cost more than $12,000, even though few such programs teach braiding. Seventeen states regulate braiding the same way they do traditional cosmetology, and 16 states require a special braiding license. Eighteen do not regulate braiding, said Paul Avelar, senior attorney for the Institute for Justice, a self-described in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Washington, D.C., since its founding 25 years ago. Taalib-Din Abdul Uqdah v. District of Columbia, in which Uqdah and his wife, Pamela Ferrell, the nationally-recognized owners of Cornrows & Co., successfully challenged Washington, D.C.s cosmetology claimed that they should have been exempt because they used no chemicals, dyes, sharp objects or other items that alter hair structure, as traditional stylists often do. This issue is about race, control, power and politics, Uqdah said. You and I wouldnt be having this discussion, but for the fact that African-style braiders are A Kentucky cosmetologists trade association complained that the exemption legislation allows braiders to style hair without learning about disorders of the skin and scalp that can result from improper styling, according to news accounts. said she has been going to Gueye IRU\003\024\033\003\\000HDUV\003IRU\003PLFUR\003EUDLGV\021\003+HU\003 GDXJKWHU\017\003\025\026\017\003LV\003DOVR\003D\003ORQJ\020WLPH\003 client. When the family moved to Kansas for four years because of her husbands military service, Stribling drove 11 hours back to Louisville every six months to get her hair done. She said shes never had a problem with her hair or scalp and credited Gueye with taking special care after her hair grew fragile from the medicine she takes for lupus. Stribling said she has become close with Gueyes family, including Gueyes mother, who moved to Louisville and started braiding a few years before her daughter did. Shes very good, said Stribling. There has never been an issue with my scalp being red or my hair being braided too tight. She knows what shes doing and is very professional. Avelar said few states set out to regulate hair braiding, but problems broadly worded codes penned decades ago, to braiding. Then they gave the power to enforce this law to a regulatory board and required that the regulatory board be made up of members of the regulated industry, to the enforcement of these laws. Uqdah called licensing an infringement on the economic liberty of braiders, many of whom are black or African-born female immigrants whose opportunities for gainful employment would be limited but for braiding. Avelar said there is a consensus forming among liberals, libertarians and conservatives that licensing requirements for workers need to be pared back. on the exemption, never wanted to speak for a cause. She just wanted to disentangle braiders from impediments to their work. We are free now, she said. Thats what we wanted to be free to just braid hair and help our families.

PAGE 6 THE STAR MARCH 31, 2018 will take travelers to key sites along the route, a mo bile app, and curriculum geared toward high-school students. According to Moss, the tour will bring legend to life as people will hear stories of heroic individuals who found freedom through this for gotten pathway. Moss, an Environmental Science professor at Geor gia State University is a sought-after consultant. Hes also known in sev eral spheres as a published scientist, award-winning singer/songwriter, and alumnus of Outdoor Afro, a group based out of Cali fornia that seeks to cele brate the black connection to nature. Hes also a pro fessor at His new website www.saltwaterrailroad.org offers a peek of whats to come as he retraces the movement of enslaved Af ricans between 1687-1865. Growing up in The Bahamas, I have always had an interest in the stories be hind certain old buildings, certain family names and so on, said Moss. Liv ing in Georgia, my wife and I do our best to give our daughters the correct information on their his tory so that they can know how to move forward to create their future. Films like Black Panther have shown that people of Af rican ancestry do want to connect to their roots, even if that connection comes character and nation from a comic book. But the Un derground Railroad is very real and some of us are where we are because our ancestors took that brave journey. The Saltwater Un derground Railroad brings another chapter to the story showing that some of our ancestors decided to not plantations for the north, but headed for other areas in the Caribbean. The Saltwater Railroad has been examined in a few news articles and books in the past. Moss is going beyond the pages and is working to create a physical interaction through tours, day outings, houses/ plantation visits and conversations with the descendants of those who made the voyage. So far there are 10 stations from Georgia to The Bahamas designated. Traditionally, the Underground Railroad heads North to Canada, but in this tour, we focus on the lesser known Southern railroad path from Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida to my hometown The Bahamas, a former British colony where free Africans developed sustainable communities that still exist today, said Moss. A largexpeditions that retrace the route to freedom, an inter pretive program that focuses on the historical narratives of those who traveled this treacherous path to a better life, and a study of the natural resources they used to sustain themselves. While many aspects of these narratives presented have been lost, and the overall story far from complete, this short tour serves as a gateway to a much larger conversation on this important path to freedom. We celebrate, through this activity, those individuals who risked their lives in search of liberty and the opportunity to decide their own destiny. Moss is already working in Georgia, Florida and The Bahamas to bring the project to fruition. He has also put in place an advisory board consisting of like-minded individuals to assist with certain aspects of the project. The end goal is to enlighten people while encouraging them to make steps in their future by retracing the steps of their past.

So why not invest in them. LearningContinued from page 1

EMPLOYMENTSTATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF CONSENT ORDER The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of agency action of entering into a Consent Order with A A Auto Parts, Inc. pursuant to Section 120.57(4), Florida Statutes. The Consent Order addresses hazardous waste violations at 6641 West Beaver Street, Jacksonville, Florida, 32254. The Consent Order is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Environmental Protection, 8800 Baymeadows Way West, Suite 100, Jacksonville, Florida, 32256. Persons whose substantial interests are affected by this Consent Order have a right to petition for an administrative hearing on the Consent Order. The Petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) in the Departments Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, MS35, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-3000, within 21 days of receipt of this notice. A copy of the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the District Office named above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within the 21 days constitutes a waiver of any right such person has to an administrative hearing pursuant to Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition shall contain the following information: (a) The Departments Consent Order identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity is located; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; (c) An explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the Consent Order; (d) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Consent Order; (e) A statement of all material facts disputed by petitioner, if any; (f) A statement of the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Consent Order; (g) A statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Consent Order; and (h) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Consent Order. If a petition is filed, the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate agency action. Accordingly, the Departments final action may be different from the position taken by it in this Notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any decision of the Department with regard to the subject Consent Order have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding. The petition must conform to the requirements specified above and be filed (received) within 21 days of receipt of this notice in the Office of General Counsel at the above address of the Department. Failure to petition within the allowed time frame constitutes a waiver of any right such person has to request a hearing under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, and to participate as a party to this proceeding. Any subsequent intervention will only be at the approval of the presiding officer upon motion filed pursuant to Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Consent Order may file a timely petition for an administrative hearing under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, or may choose to pursue mediation as an alternative remedy under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, before the deadline for filing a petition. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. The procedures for pursuing mediation are set forth below. Mediation may only take place if the Department and all the parties to the proceeding agree that mediation is appropriate. A person may pursue mediation by reaching a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (which include the Respondent, the Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing) and by showing how the substantial interests of each mediating party are affected by the Consent Order. The agreement must be filed in (received by) the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 323993000, within 10 days after the deadline as set forth above for the filing of a petition. The agreement to mediate must include the following: (a) The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any persons who may attend the mediation; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the mediator selected by the parties, or a provision for selecting a mediator within a specified time; (c) The agreed allocation of the costs and fees associated with the mediation; (d) The agreement of the parties on the confidentiality of discussions and documents introduced during mediation; (e) The date, time, and place of the first mediation session, or a deadline for holding the first session, if no mediator has yet been chosen; (f) The name of each partys representative who shall have NOTICEauthority to settle or recommend settlement; and (g) Either an explanation of how the substantial interests of each mediating party will be affected by the action or proposed action addressed in this notice of intent or a statement clearly identifying the petition for hearing that each party has already filed, and incorporating it by reference. (h) The signatures of all parties or their authorized representatives. As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for requesting and holding an administrative hearing. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within 60 days of the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a Final Order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by such a modified final decision of the Department have a right to petition for a hearing only in accordance with the requirements for such petitions set forth above, and must therefore file their petitions within 21 days of receipt of this notice. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes.

The state Department of Corrections said in a news release that Justin Stokes was found unresponsive in his cell at Ware State Prison in Waycross just after 1 p.m. Wednesday. The release says prison medical staff tried unsuccessfully to revive him. He was pronounced dead by a doctor at 1:50 p.m. The agency is investigating, which is standard procedure when an inmate dies in custody. Stokes was sentenced in 2014 to serve 15 years on assault, battery and animal cruelty charges out of Houston County. The agency has previously said that three Georgia inmates died by apparent suicide in January. The 17 children killed in Florida has brought the state to its knees. Florida State Representative Kim berly Daniels, who is also a pastor in Jacksonville, stood before her colleagues after the high school trag as the States motto stating that when we remove God, we remove hope. Each school needs hope. The eyes are the gateway to our souls that can litterly see down to our hearts. We must address the issues of the heart. In doing such, we must trust God. She therefore asked for the House to vote to make the statement In God We Trust to be the State of Floridas motto. This motto would be placed throughout the state, especially at the schools. With such a statement placed in the schools and other plac es, perhaps we wont ever witness another attempted mass murder in Florida.
