Clifford Baron McCloud (Sleepy), owner of Club Steppin Out, located in the 2700 block of N. Pearl Street.
Many thought of Club Steppin Out as the "Home of the Old Timers and Longshoremen." Most never thought it would
be a place where the owner would be shot and killed but, that is what happened early Saturday morning. Clifford
"Sleepy" McCloud, 38, according to witness, had asked some of the patrons of the club to leave. One of the three men
advised Sleepy that he would be back and as promised, he did return, but with a firearm. Some said there was a scuffle
outside of the club that turned into a gun fight. When it was all over, two others were injured, including'Sleepy's cousin,
who reported, was in a wheel chair. The three individuals that participated in the fight, immediately left the area. Some
members of the community say they know who shot Sleepy and thought that the suspect had been apprehended by the U.
S. Army. This had not been confirmed at press time.
McCloud's homegoing service will be held at the Philippian Community Church, 7578 New Kings Road, at 11:00 a.m.
Saturday, October 13, 2007. McCloud's murder was Jacksonville's 118th homicide for 2007.

Dr. Asa Hilliard Scholar/Liberator
Child Watch Column
By Marian Wright Edelma, President of the Children's Defense Fund
We lost a giant in August
when educator, psychologist
and historian Asa G. Hilliard
III died while leading a
study tour in Egypt. Asa
Hilliard was a pioneering
scholar who sought a
greater balance in the histo-
ry curriculum as it is taught
in American elementary and
secondary schools and at the
university level. He was a
special kind of freedom
fighter who struggled to lib-
erate us from the bondage of
ignorance of our rich
He said, "Basic change
in our condition as a people
must begin with our change
of mind." Many of us can
remember when the worst
thing we could call some-
body we didn't like was
"Black." Asa worked to
spread cultural wellness by
helping Black people
become grounded in their
African heritage and expel
the negative self images
acquired from the dominant
Asa Hilliard was born to
a father who was a high
school principal and a moth-
er who was a Pentecostal
minister in Galveston,
Texas. He graduated from
the University of Denver in
1955 and received a mas-
ter's degree in counseling in
1962 and a doctorate in edu-
national psychology from
the University in 1963. He
taught at San Francisco
State University for 18
years concluding his tenure
,there as Dean of Education.
Since 1980, he was Fuller
E. Callaway Professor of
Urban Education at Georgia
Dr. Hilliard traveled
extensively in Africa and
his scholarship was based
on the direct study of the
Dogon and Akan peoples of
West Africa. He was one of
the founders of the
Association for the Study of
Civilizations. It was
through the Association that
he led 1,000 students and
scholars to Aswan, Egypt,
in 1987 to study Nile Valley
civilizations. He made huge
contributions to education
in other lands as a consult-
ant to the Peace Corps and
Superintendent of Schools
in Monrovia, Liberia.
A founding member of
the National Black Child
Development Institute, Asa
Hilliard was first and fore-
most an educator who
believed that every child
can learn. He was always
correcting the historical
record and opposed the mis-
teaching of European and
American history and
sought an inclusive truth in

historical courses. In addi-
tion to stand-alone courses
on African history and cul-
ture, he developed K-12
school curricula that
infused African and African
American content in virtu-
ally all subjects. For
instance, math students
might learn how ancient
Not only did he push for
the story of African
Americans to be included in
the stream of historic
instruction, but he also
insisted that the experience
of peoples of Latin
American, Asian and
Native American descent be
included in the curriculum.
Much of this was focused
on building self-esteem
among young people of
color. Dr. Hilliard was a
strong opponent of cultural-
ly biased IQ and standard-
ized tests and charged that
these tests operated to
exclude minority applicants
who are, most in need of
He refused to treat the
study ofAfrican history as a
static academic subject and
worked to introduce the cul-
tural content of the pre-
enslavement African expe-
rience into current social
systems. He said, "We must
go back through the Door of
No Return, transforming it
to the Door of Return,
reconnecting to our tradi-
tions and propelling our-
selves forward in a direc-
tion of our own choosing."
Rather than call a meeting,
Asa would convene a
"Mbongi," a Ki-Congo term
for a gathering of a commu-
nity to solve a problem
where everyone has an
equal opportunity to con-
tribute. He insisted upon
redefining common miscon-
ceptions about the status of
Black Americans like reject-
ing efforts to "close the
achievement gap" between
Black and White students,
and instead promoting the
closing of the excellence
gap between Black students
and their potential.
Asa Hilliard died on
August 13, 2007, in Cairo of
complications from malaria.
He was 73. His transition
leaves a huge gap we must
all work to fill. He felt that
there was still much more to
do. He said, "We do not
have sufficient cultural cen-
ters, movements, monu-
ments and celebrations to
highlight important experi-
ences and to shape direc-
tions. These things offer us
the opportunity to be reflec-
tive and to develop a more
firm vision of the future."
It seems appropriate that
he should die while doing
one of the things he loved
most: leading students on
the 20th annual study tour
of the Nile Valley.

Introducing Athletic Hall of Fame
Educator, Coach, Volunteer, First Coast native
and All Around Gentleman Ernest Gibson, was
recently inducted into Tuskegee University's
Athletic Hall of Fame.
Gibson, who enrolled at Tuskegee University
then Tuskegee Institute on the G.I. Bill in 1950,
had an interest in sports and at first pursued foot-
ball. After one year as a football guard, he
switched to track and was member of the track
team for four years. He lettered each year. As a
member of the track team, Gibson ran the 100,
220 yard dash, 440, and 880 yard relay, along
with the sprint medley relay. He was Captain of
the Army R.O.T.C. Rifle Team for two years and
lettered in 1952.
Majoring in Industrial Education and being
active in campus life, Gibson was listed in
"Who's Who in American Colleges and
Universities". An active member of Kappa Alpha
Psi Fraternity, Inc. he served as secretary and was
also elected president of the Men's senate at
Tuskegee. In later years he earned the Master of
Science Degree from Florida State University.
The ambition to succeed and help in the train-
ing of others, took Gibson to the classroom where
he taught Industrial Arts for eighteen years and
advanced to department chairperson. During this
same period of time, he served as assistant foot-
ball coach, and head coach of the junior varsity
basketball team and track team. Later Gibson
served as an administrative assistant on the junior
high school level for twelve years, retiring with
thirty-three years of service in education.
Gibson devotes time and effort in spiritual and
social organizations, including the NAACP,
YMCA, and Habitat for Humanity, Salvation
Army and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. He is
a member of St. Paul AME Church where he
serves as a Steward, choir member, president of
the male chorus, and a member of the leadership
Gibson is a strong, physical and financial sup-
porter of Tuskegee University through the
Jacksonville Tuskegee club, where he has served
as president and secretary. He participates each
year with club sponsored tours to the campus,
student scholarships, choir tours and the parade
of clubs. Additionally he has returned to campus
each year during the month of July to work with
the National Adopt-a-Dorm Program.
When we spoke with Mr. Gibson he stated, "It
was with deep humility and adoration that I
accepted the honor bestowed on me especially on
those hallowed grounds of 'Mother' Tuskegee.
When you do your best in whatever you under-
take the best will come back to you. This honor
will linger with me for as long as I am able to
recall this occasion."
Joining Gibson for this auspicious occasion
were his wife Dr. Lois Davis Gibson (his college
sweetheart), his daughter, The honorable State
Representative Ms. Audrey Gibson, his son The
Ernest Gerard Gibson and his family, Atlanta,
GA, Mrs. Andrea Williamson Kemp, Vincent
and Mrs. Paula Myrick, and long time friends
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mungin, Pittsburg, PA.
In fact, Mr. Mungin a Tuskegee University
Athletic Hall of Fame-er himself, nominated Mr.
Gibson for the 2007 group.
Congratulations to Ernest Gibson, a commit-
ted Tuskegee University Alumnus and wonderful
all around citizen!

FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Dear Jacksonville Voters:
As you may know, there is an audacious move underway to add eighteen (18)
more months to Mayor Peyton's current term. Perhaps impeachment is the proper
Democratic pursuit at this time, rather than extending the Mayor's (and Council's)
tenures in office. TriLegacy, Courthouse, and ProLogic debacles exceeding $90
.million are crying out for Mayor Peyton's impeachment. The unjust, regressive,
and unnecessary fees confirm that Mayor Peyton, and Council members who sup-
ported him, should actually leave office ASAP. In essence, here are seven reasons
for which the respective terms should not be extended:
1. District Adulteration We don't need another 18 months of constituent
Misrepresentation that's embedded in certain Council Districts. If Peyton leaves on
time, perhaps those Council leaders who voted "yes" for the Administration on the
new fees, instead of following their constituents desires, will begin to do the right
thing by following the desires of their constituents.
2. Deceitful Administration Jacksonville doesn't need 18 more months of
wasteful Administration. Savings for dismissal at end of four year term will far
exceed savings for 18 month extension. At least $18 Million have been wasted or
mismanaged per year during Peyton's first four years in office. We could save $27
million by not keeping him another 18 months.
3. Disgusting Arrogance We really can't handle another 18 more months of
local governmental Arrogance e.g., in terms of new fees, the so called Town
Hall meetings were conducted without the Town meetings, new charges were
installed against the will of the people, public input that would have further cut the
budget was circumvented.
4. Distrust with Abomination Since Proverbs confirm that "lying lips are an
abomination", we shouldn't have to tolerate another 18 months truth Manipulation
- i.e., the Mayor said he'd return to the private sector at the end of this "four year
term". We should demand, at least in this case, that Mr. Peyton be a man of his
5. Domineering Appearance Perhaps we need to confirm who really initiated
this proposed legislation. Could it be that the sponsor is just following an idea of
the Peyton Administration or its friends and thereby having outside forces domi-
nate the proposal idea and process?
6. Derelict Apologies We don't need another 18 months that could include more
sorry and insulting apologies. If you were here when the Mayor came down and
said he was sorry about ProLogic, it was as if he basically said, "I'm sorry I took
your lawnmower through ProLogic, but please forgive me and help me get ready
to take you automobile through the new regressive fees".
7. Degrading Apathy Don't need 18 more months of Apathy. We are facing
another potential record year in homicides. The Mayor and the Council consistent-
ly prove that they are more concerned with their own agendas than preserving Life
- e.g., the Mayor makes no speeches on this critical matter, he attends none of the
many funerals, and there is nothing to prove that he is actively engaged in reducing
and preventing murder.
Please vote "NO" to any legislation that would allow Mayor Peyton to stay in
office an additional eighteen (18) months. Again, we should perhaps be consider-
ing impeachment rather than an extension.

I bought a car from a friend and it was a huge mistake. After I
got the car it broke down, started leaking oil and the transmis-
sion went bad. Because we're friends, I thought we could
work it out and I would get some of my money back. I
approached him about these issues and he told me it wasn't his
problem. I don't know what to do because a mechanic told me
he had the car fixed just enough to sell it. I feel betrayed and
want to know if I can sue him?
Melinda (Boston, MA)
Your friend ripped you off by selling you a lemon and left you with a silly look on your face.
There's not much you can do unless you have documents, the terms of the sale and similar
paperwork you would normally receive from a dealership. Your car is on the road dead, your
friendship is ruined and your money is gone. Its worth going to small claims court because
he didn't think about you so you should handle your business and get ready to see the judge.
My husband is very selfish and inconsiderate. We have a healthy relationship, our finances
are good and we are good parents to our children. The biggest issue in the relationship is the
fact he won't help with anything. I have to do all the shopping, cleaning, planning for activ-
ities and everything to run the household and our lives. If I don't do things he'll sit like a
lump on a log. If things don't get done, we argue. How can I get him to meet me in the mid-
Happy But Tired (Toledo, OH)
Your husband is a lost cause if you don't have him trained or house broken by now. You
should.look on the bright side and be glad he has a job, he's not abusive and he's involved
with the children instead of being on a milk carton like a dead beat dad. Take an analysis of
the pros and cons in your marriage and if the negatives are more than the positives seek
counseling, hang in there and do the best you can to motivate your husband and get him
I'm dating a woman who has children by another man. I knew this going into the relation-
ship and I know the problems that would eventually come. However, I didn't expect to
spend money on these kids and have them curse me out and disrespect me nor did I expect
my girlfriend to sleep with their father behind my back. The situation is worse now because
she's pregnant with my baby and I know I should leave this mess but I feel guilty. What do
Brian (Los Angeles, CA)
It would be a good idea if you decide not to be stuck on stupid. You need to get out of this
relationship because you're being used and disrespected. As for the pregnancy, you can ride
the wave until the baby gets here because you don't know if the baby is yours until you've
had a blood test. This clown show will only get worse as time goes on and you need to hold
onto your money and your mind, give them your rear end to kiss and keep it moving.

Gold Grills May Be the Fad of
Choice for Some Young
People, But Take Heed They
By: Tonyaa Weathersbee, BAW
Kevin Stokes had it halfway right.
When his 10-year-old stepson, Vincent
Holloman, made good grades and was elected president at his elementary school
in Pompano Beach, Fla., Stokes decided that a reward was in order.
That's when wisdom surrendered to stupidity.
According to the Miami Herald, Stokes spent $500 on gold grills that cov-
ered Vincent's lower front teeth. When a school guidance counselor asked the
child to take them out, and apparently didn't buy his explanation that they were
permanent, Vincent said she snatched them out.
As of last week, the counselor had been reassigned while her actions were

being investigated. School system
officials were grappling with
whether to ban the gold mouth-
pieces, which some children have
taken to sharing with each other, in
the dress code. And Stokes was
complaining about how Vincent's
gums had been damaged when the
woman snatched them dut, as they
had been cemented in by a dentist.
If the counselor indeed
snatched out Vincent's mouthpiece,
well, that wasn't wise. But her
judgment wasn't nearly as bad as
Stokes' judgment in buying a fifth-
grader gold grills in the first place.
That's because grills aren't just
some sort of fashion statement that
invokes the usual fear in straitlaced
folks who blame gangster rap for
all the ills of black youth.
Grills, you see, can kill.

In recent years, some have questioned the need to publish notices in local
newspapers, saying that the Internet has become so widely used that it repre-
sents a better way of informing the public. The Internet can play a role in a bet-
ter informed citizenry, but public notices buried in government Web sites cannot
replace the value delivered by newspapers. The permanence, stability and inde-
pendent verification offered by publication of.public notices in newspapers
ensure citizens have access to bonafide, trusted information about the business

'CLUB DRUGS' Gone Wild
Ester Da\ is
A couple of girlfriends are in io\\n for a conenlion .
After dinner. you decide to hang out at that nel\\ club for a
nightcap. Just like \\e used to do. Girl. remembering bar-
hopping days. Or. sou are out of town at a convention. You
are restless and need to "wind down." The bell captain rec-
ommends a nightclub and hails a cab for you. Let's say, you are not especially look-
ing for anyone, anything ... just a good night out on the town, some jazz, a dab. of
country or down-home blues, and you will be safely back home by 2 a.m. Good, clean
Know, before you go, that the club scene has changed. There are a few new play-
ers at the clubs these days. Club drugs, or "date rape" drugs,' no longer have college
or teenagers associated with them. They have moved "uptown" to the Christian con-
ferences, corporate sales meetings, and baby-boomer playgrounds. They come to the
dinner parties, the open bar and the semi-formal annual awards programs. They crash
the country clubs, bingo and art galleries. These new players have nicknames. They
are called "liquid ecstasy," "Georgia Home Boy," "Special K," peddled by "Mr. Tall,
Tan & Terrific" and/or "Ms. 38-24-44." The well-dressed mistress or master blends in
and does some namedropping, quotes scripture, has the football scores and is familiar
with designer suits. The approach is innocent, classic and working. These street names
of drugs and their "business owners" can turn a pleasant night out into a nightmare,
regardless of who you are with, where you are or what time it is.
GHB is short for Gamma-hydroxybutyrate, MDMA (Ecstasy), Katamine (Special
K, Vitamin K), Rohynol (roofies), and Methamphetamine (Speed, Crank, Meth).
(Where do they get these names??) GHB is hard to detect. The taste is easily masked
by most drinks. Know for sure that the effects are magnified when mixed with alco-
hol or other drugs, prescribed or illegal. Like alcohol, GHB is a depressant. Even in
low doses, it reduces inhibitions and causes amnesia. GHB and a host of other drugs,
when slipped into an alcoholic drink, juice or soft drink makes the victim helpless
against sexual or other assault, i.e., blackmail, robbery or becoming a new "adult" star
(polite for pornography).
Back to the night out with the girls ... or the boys. You are asked to dance, and the
music is speaking to your groove. Oh, yea, he can dance. Can I buy you a drink? Sure.
And you move away from your safety net over to the lustrous, plush media room with
the conversational d6cor. A little talking won't hurt. And while a "stranger" goes to get
your drink, you continue to admire the view and relax. Wrong! Wrong!!
Health professionals attest to.the fact that if you go to the emergency room, doc-
tors have no idea what they are.dealing with, because there is no simple test for the
GHB families. So, to be safe, for openers never accept any drink from a stranger. The
rest is simple, old-fashioned common sense.
Discuss this article with a young person, a traveler, a socialite, and all trusting
optimists. It could save a life.

Five Questions and Answers about Public Notices -
Public notices published in newspapers provide citizens a Window into gov-
ernment. Most of the information for the following questions and answers comes
from the booklet "Public Notice: An American Tradition, An Examination of the
Role of Newspapers in Public Notice," published by the Public Notice Resource
Center and American Court & Commercial Newspapers.
1) What is a public notice?
A public notice is information informing citizens of government or govern-
ment-related activities that affect citizens' everyday lives.
2) Why do we need public notices?
An important premise found in both federal and local governments is that
information about government activities must be accessible in order for the elec-
torate to make well-informed decisions. Public notices in newspapers provide
this sort of accessibility to citizens who want to know more about government
3) What is the history of public notices?
The history of public notice begins long before the emergence of newspa-
pers. The concept has existed since early civilizations posted notices in public
squares. This crude method was eventually refined with the publication of the
first publication of the first English language newspaper in 1665 a court news-
paper called The Oxford Gazette.
In America, the Acts of the First Session of the First Congress in 1789
required that all bills, orders, resolutions and congressional votes be published
in at least three publicly available newspapers.
Upholding the public's right to know has been essential to our country's way
of life since day one. Our government governs with the consent of people, and
this consent must be informed.
4) What are some examples of a public notices?
There are many kinds of public notices. Publication of proposed budgets for
local governments, notices of local government hearings, bid notices, board and
agency meeting minutes and pre-election notices are just a few examples.
5) Are newspapers the most effective vehicle for public notices?
Public notices published in newspapers ensures readership by those most
likely to be interested in or affected by the notices. Plus, the notices arrive at
readers' homes or places of work in a newspaper filled with local news and infor-
mation that compels readership.
Newspapers are paid to publish public notices, which guarantees that valu-
able newspaper space will be devoted to notifying the public. The system works

AMERICAN ARTHRITIS SOCIETY
What Can You Do About Osteoarthritis?
Today, more than 10 million Americans suffer from osteoarthri-
tis of the knee, making it the most common form of arthritis in the
U.S. When the cushioning layers of cartilage within the joint are
worn down, the bones begin to rub against each other. This leads
to swelling and increased stiffness, and many daily activities
become painful and difficult. But what can you do to protect your
joints, reduce the symptoms, and support your doctor's treatment?
With assistance from some of the world's leading knee experts, the
American Arthritis Society has compiled some useful and practical
tips for self-care, and made them available on the Society's website.
Each tip is interesting and easy to follow. These and many more
suggestions regarding osteoarthritis can now be viewed online at:

SMarch 21st thru April 19th
You're ready to take action and say what's on
your mind (or in your heart) on Monday and
Tuesday, but someone else involved may need
time, explanations or miscellaneous patience.
A solo endeavor's a fine idea now. You're even
more goal-oriented from Wednesday until
sometime Friday. But do your current ambi-
tions line up with your values? And are you
being attentive to your karma along the way?
When the weekend comes, you might just find
a beautiful new balance. Somebody else has an
amazing perspective to share that'll inform
April 20th thru May 20th
The minute you make a bold statement or big
move on Monday or Tuesday, you might have
second thoughts. Consider -- and reconsider --
.your alternatives now, and you might even
come up with something different and better.
Taking actioA's much more favored from
Wednesday until sometime Friday, and your
ideals co e into play, too. With your heart
firmly in right place, there's little you can't
do. This weekend, something or someone
unusual is. on the scene. How will you react?
It's not a black-and-white type of thing. Give it
time to evolve -- this could get interesting.
.... ... ~~ay 21st thru June 21st
The ins and,olts of a relationship (at work?
family? a romantic liaison?) are fascinating as
the week gets going. Want to make it more
functional? Lool? from their angle, and resist
issuing instructions. From Wednesday until
sometime Friday,-though, more practical mat-
ters demand attention. Develop a better under-
standing and make a solid plan. Your energy's
dynamic this weekend, and the possibilities for
change are endleds -- and electric. Changing
your mind can be the smartest thing you can
do (and luckily you're good at it!).
June 22nd thru July 22nd
Your challenge this week: Getting the good
stuff going and keeping the energy flowing.-
Your ural instinct to be all-attentive to oth-
ers an give until it hurts needs conscious bal-
ancing early in the week. Make it a one-for-
them, one-for-you kind of proposition. Around
Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, postponing
something isn't the best idea. Just do it! And
when the weekend comes, do something to
bust out of a rut -- preferably something that
engages both your romantic heart and your
amazing intellect. Hint: This may be spur-of-
j July 23rd thru Aug 22nd
Are you ready for something or someone total-
ly different? The same old stuff goes out the
window early in the week, probably with you
giving it a shove. Your energy's dynamic and
change i in the air, especially in romance.
Then, from Wednesday until sometime Friday,
a slow and steady approach is in order, with
self-awareness coupled with extra sensitivity
to those arouhld you. You can accomplish a ton
now. Interpersonal.. stuff can blossom this
weekend if you can put your pride aside. Be
humble, be frank and move forward on your
life and love path.
i e lo' Aug 23rd thru Sept 22nd
Life looks full of obligations of various sorts
early in the week, but you can minimize ten-
sion and maximize satisfaction as you get
things done. Be proactive about destressing
and keeping a humane schedule. Both work
and romantic matters are favored from
Wednesday through Friday, and the way to
make the most progress is to have fun with it
all. What you create now can be beautiful
indeed. Your perfectionist streak is a mile wide
this weekend, but don't be too harsh, whether
on yourself or someone else. Practice is impor-
tant for the old learning curve.
Sept 23rd thru Oct 22nd
Making progress with ongoing stuff-- person-
al, work or other -- is a snap early in the week.
Use your spare time to explore more abstract
ideas and bigger visions for the future. Around
Wednesday or Thursday, though, you might
find yourself stuck on something or someone
from the past. Take off any rose-colored glass-
es, or find a way to process and let go of dark-
er feelings. When the weekend comes, you'll
want to be ready to receive the gifts that the
present brings. Feel your interconnection with
others and the world. It's a beautiful thing!
Oct 23rd thru Nov 21st
The key this week: Pace yourself! Early on,
around Monday and Tuesday, you might be
plunging ahead when you should be testing the
waters instead. Hint: If something (or some-
one) seems incredibly great, check out the
credibility. Your timing and your instincts are
right on from Wednesday through most of
Friday, so much so that there's little you can't
accomplish. Your people skills are great now,
too -- use them. This weekend, don't get stuck.
An idea can always use a little evolution; a
plan can always use a little change. Stay in
gear rather than spinning your wheels.
I Nov 22nd thru Dec 21st
At work or play, your performance is much
admired as the week gets under way. And for
good reason: Your self-confidence makes
whatever you do a success, or at least a suc-
cessful experiment. Around Wednesday or
Thursday, you might be fixated on a thing
rather than the people or ideas around you. It's
odd. Why are you so captivated; (if not
obsessed)? Figure it out, because When the
weekend comes, you'll want to be wide open
to the whole spectrum of life around you.
Excellent energy's all yours now. Use it or lose
j Dec 22nd thru Jan 19th
If possibilities seem to be diminishing early in the
week, use that trademark persistence of yours.
Try taking a longer-term view, rather than letting
whatever's going on right now get under your
skin. And if there's something you really want to
achieve, just wait until Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday. Work recognition, romantic results and
serious progress on a project can all be yours.
This weekend, you might see big potential, but if
it's an unproven scheme, be leery. Risks aren't
favored now. Go for what (or who) seems most
stable and worthy of your trust.
-. Jan 20th thru Feb 18th
You're always amazing on your own, but
you're especially excellent in a pair or as part
of a group as the week gets going. Friends,
coworkers or a partner of some kind have
ways to help you both focus and expand on
your ideas. Around Wednesday and Thursday,
however, your world might feel like it's con-
tracting. You don't like limits like this, but
pushing them now isn't the best plan. Lay low,
and expect the energy to change for the better
sometime Friday, with 'change' being the oper-
ative word. All kinds of new possibilities await
Feb 19th thru March 20th
Work or a certain relationship might be a pain
early this week, but complaining won't get you
far. Bring a new idea or a proposed change of
plan to the table, and make it a positive one.
Around Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, you
might just get hooked up with help from some
unexpected places. Everything's interconnect-
ed, and your awareness of this means you'll
see what others are missing. This weekend, the
world of' dreams is close by. Enjoy it and the
creativity it brings, but don't lose track of real-
ity, or even your keys!
SrFrom Actual Police Reports
sH Did You Hear About?...
"F'YOU, I'M NOT GOINGANYWHERE An offi-
cer was dispatched to the Municipal Stadium during a
football game. Upon his arrival he met with the victim
and witness #1 who stated that they made contact with the
suspect and attempted to escort him out of the stadium.
The suspect began to resist them. Both the victim and wit- y.
ness were clearly identifiable as security personnel when
they approached the suspect. When the suspect was asked
to leave, the suspect stated, "f_ck you, I'm not going any-
where." At this time witness 2 and witness 3 attempted to
assist the victim and witness 1. When witness 1 told one
of the other security officers to get the police, the suspect
then began to resist even more. At this time the victim fell
to the ground and struck his head on the ground while try-
ing to restrain the suspect. The suspect was eventually
handcuffed by officers and he was arrested. Post Miranda the suspect stated he did not know
what occurred. I detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath, slurred speech,
and bloodshot watery eyes. The officer was advised by JFRD personnel that the victim's injuries
were possibly life threatening and he was being transported to Shands Hospital by Rescue Unit
#1. JSO Police Recruits advised that they responded to assist the CSC Security officers when
they saw them struggling with the suspect. Upon their arrival, they told the suspect repeatedly
to stop resisting and place his hands behind his back. The suspect refused to comply. The sus-
pect was eventually handcuffed. Neither police recruit saw the victim getting injured during the
altercation with the suspect. One of the officers gave the victim a state attorney's card and
advised him to meet with a state attomey if he wanted to press any charges against the suspect.
AGGRAVATED ASSUALT AND BATTERY A Jacksonville police officer was
dispatched to the 4300 block of Sunbeam Rd., where 59 year old PRB says he was
shot by RLO, a stranger wearing an FSU shirt
and denim shorts. A 9mm semi-automatic
",. firearm was seized, along with 9mm bullets
and a canvass concealment holster. The gun
'. was not reported stolen. PRB was shot just
above his right buttock and the bullet appar-
ently lodged in his lower abdomen, just below
.. j- n i his waistline. He told Ofc. A.E.P. that as he
Drove into the apartment complex, a group of
kids were blocking his way. He advised that
:- '--' he had to stop his car while they slowly got
out of his way. As he passed, he told the kids
S' 'I to stay out of the road. He then drove to his
apartment, parked his car and walked with his
walking stick back to the office to make a
complaint. Once there he was describing, what
happened to witness #1, CN. At that point,
witness #2, A.L., the suspect's girlfriend, walked in and confronted PRB. She
accused PRB of calling them the "N" word. An argument ensued and witness #2,
A.L. entered the office with a baseball bat. She heard what was being said and inter-
rupted the victim and accused him of calling all of them the "N" word. At that point,
the suspect then approached the front door to the office and demanded he get out of
his girlfriend's face. After a brief verbal altercation with the suspect, the victim
turned his attention back to witness #2, who continued yelling at him. Sometime
during the argument, the suspect shot the victim. At that time, witness #2 told the
suspect to get the gun and "get out of
there." It was later learned that the
victim, who was transported to the
hospital had no life threatening
injuries. RLO was advised of his .
rights and he agreed to talk to the
officer and maintained that he
thought the victim was going to hit
his girfrilnd with his walking stick.
He said he was aiming the gun at the
victim's feet, but when he fired it
struck him in his right buttock. .
GRAND THEFT AND AGGRA- ,. .
VATED ASSAULT WITH DEAD-'
LY WEAPON On Saturday, Officer JR said he came in contact with victim TN
while he was working off duty at the hospital. The victim informed him that he was
in the parking lot of PPH Food Mart and was hanging outside of his car. He stated
that the suspect's girlfield was talking with one of the girls that was inside of the car
when the suspect reached inside and took the listed item. The victim saw this and
confronted the suspect about the jacket. The victim stated that he did not know that
the suspect had a knife and the next thing he knew he was being stabbed. The sus-
pect then fled the scene in an unknown direction in the listed car. Officer JR saw
where the victim,TN, had three stab wounds on his left shoulder.Witnesses informed
Officer JR that they saw the
victim approach the suspect
and saw the suspect pull a knife
and started stabbing the victim.
They saw the suspect get into
the car and flee in an unknown
direction. The officer went to
the food mart to see if he could
( gather more information, but
f was unable to. Officer JR
spoke with Emergency Room
doctor DC and he stated that

It's a Wonderful
Ain't it? at, Am
After thorough training
and several more plays at the
ABC LATC, Brown struck out into
the professional arena as a
had child actress. It didn't take
her long for this bubbly cutie pie
w of to start booking TV commer-
ince cials and in the process
king become the face of brands
hyon such as Disney and The Gap
cele- while appearing in print ads
for them and others. Brown's
Stand out talent has allowed
) on her to secure recurring roles
Lne in "Judging Amy," "Boston
ABC Public," "That's So Raven,"
how "Hidden Hills," and "The
.ide Bernie Mac Show." She has
also guest starred in "ER,"
"Seventh Heaven," "Two and
pre- a Half Men," "My Wife and
st s Kids," "Girlfriends," "The
Geena Davis Show,"
tca "Everybody Loves
lews. Raymond," and "One on
e of One" to name a few. Brown's
en by film appearances include 50
knew Cent's Get Rich or Die Trying
the and other films including
rsue. made for TV Films. At her
s in age, Brown has a pretty
Wiz, extensive' resume and track
geles record. And speaking of track,
:r the Brown is also a stand out ath-
tress lete at her school in four
aquel events i.e., the 100 meters,
gazing 200 meters, the 4 x 100m and
Ltory. the 4x400m. When asked
:e her about it she proudly beams, "I
lines actually placed second in
the City. It was my first year run-
ng to ning so that was pretty good."
or to Does she have her eye on the
e a Olympics? She laughs, "Yeah,
n I'm trying to decide on what I
was want to do although acting is
cipate my first love but I guess yeah,
1 her you can say that."
:e the When asked about her role
rvato- on the show and the experi-
age ence, Brown perks up again,
llow- "I've been on the show since
ler to the pilot. We're on ABC
but in Family, Tuesday nights at 8.
Life, The set is a great environ-
azing ment. The cast meshes togeth-
er really well. It's one of the only Black
shows on the air right now and it's doing
really well. I think that is something
people need to be exposed to because
we're out there and we can play these
serious roles. This is not the typical
show you find out there. I think that we
are definitely original and the fact that
we are mixing cop and family. So I think
that the Sutton family is almost like a
role model family for people out there."
In further describing herself, Brown
ads, "I'm in the 10th grade and I go to
public school which I'm happy about.
I'm not really a big fan of the home
school you know. I consider myself pret-
ty ordinary. I like hanging out with my
friends and stuff. I, also find the. mix
between doing the acting thing and I
have regular friends and I try to stay in
regular school because there is nothing
like the high school experience. My par-
ents have definitely kept me grounded.
What are her favorite subjects? She
responds, "I'm a big history fan." She
also plans to go to college. If Brown
were an animal which one would she be?
That eye twinkle lights up again and she
answers, a panther. They're fast, sleek
