BBB Warns against Census Scams
By: Cheryl Williams
The President of the North Florida Chapter of the Better Business Bureau is warning against U.S. Census
scams. Being aware is the best defense to empower residents of Jacksonville protection from identity theft.
The BBB warns Duval residents against people who may pose as Census employees and ask for money or
social security numbers.
"Do not give any information to anyone who is asking for a donation, credit card information," said Tom
Stephens, North East Florida's BBB president.
The BBB is issuing these facts on how to identify a Census Field representative.
If a U.S. Census Bureau employee knocks on your door, there are some recognition tips to assure the validi-
ty of the field representative:
The field representative must present an ID badge that contains a Department of Commerce watermark and
expiration date. The field representative may also be carrying a bag with a Census Bureau logo. The field rep-
resentative will provide you with supervisor contact information and/or the Regional Office phone number for
verification, if asked. The field representative will provide you with a letter from the Census Bureau Director
on official letterhead.
The BBB also clarifies how to identify field representatives when they are canvassing door-to-door. Starting
in April to July 2010, the Census Bureau will knock on the door of every household that does not mail back
a completed 2010 Census form. It's critical that you take just 10 minutes to fill out and mail back your form
rather than wait for a census worker to show up on your doorstep. The Census Bureau must get a census form
to and a completed form back from every residence in the United States.
"Field representatives will never ask you for your social security number, bank account number, or credit card
number. Census workers also never solicit for donations and will never contact you by e-mail," said Stephens.
The BBB also states that the Census is safe. The 2010 Census will ask for name, gender, age, race, ethnic-
ity, relationship, and whether you own or rent your home just 10 simple questions.

Senator Hill provided a
compl 'L document stating that if
ra ao you know more about
Haiti, you may want to
help more. Because of lim-
ited space, we are Not pro-
viding the full document
but just an introduction.
Readers are free to contact
The Florida Star for the
complete document or we may carry it in a later issue. In the meantime, please
read about this historical country.
Haiti is the First Black Republic. In the 18th Century Haiti, then called Saint-
Domingue and ruled by the French, was the most prosperous colony in the New
World. Its enormously fertile soil produced a great abundance of crops and
drew thousands of White French settlers. In an attempt to defeat the Haitian
slave revolt he saw approaching, Napoleon Bonaparte sold Louisiana, then a
colony owned by the French, to the United States for $3 Million dollars, in an
attempt to build up his army, to no avail.
An Army of Black slaves had their victory against the army of Napoleon
Bonaparte and on January 1st, 1804, Jean-Jacques Dessalines, an African-born
ex-slave, declared Haiti Independent. It was the first Black Republic in the
World and the first Country in the Western Hemisphere to Abolish Slavery
The first such republic, the United States, despite its creed that "all men are
created equally" looked upon theses self-freed men with shock, contempt and
fear. To most of the Western trading world, whose wealth was built on the
labor of enslaved Africans, Haiti stoodas a frightful example of freedom car-
ried too far. American slaveholders feared that Haiti 's fires of revolt would
cross those few hundred miles of sea and excite their slaves to revolt.
For this reason, the United States refused for nearly six decades to recognize
Haiti. Along with the great colonial powers, American instead rewarded
Haiti's triumphant slaves with a suffocating trade embargo and a demand that
in exchange for peace the fledging country pay enormous reparations to its for-
mer colonial overseer. Having won their freedom by force of arms, Haiti's for-
mer slaves would be made to purchase it with treasure. Abraham Lincoln final-
ly recognized Haiti in 1862.

A LIVING LEGEND MUSIC CONTRACTOR!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/ FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET
If you have seen a movie within the last
thirty years, it is without question that you have
heard the handiwork via the film's soundtrack of
Sandy DeCrescent. With over 1100 films to her
credit, the DeCrescent stamp of excellence has
been affixed on some of the most influential
Hollywood films of all time! DeCrescent is a film
music contractor. She works with the top music
composers and conductors by hiring the orches-
tra musicians, copyist, arrangers and any other
essential studio personnel for their film scoring
recording sessions. She also represents her
conductor/composers by negotiating studio
rates, musician's pay, hours and size of the
ensemble or orchestra with the studios and their
producers. DeCrescent's latest films include "It's
Complicated," "Avatar" and "The Princess and
The Frog." She has done all of Steven
Spielberg's films from day one. Her clients are
the best of the best including Randy Newman,
James Newton Howard, Hans Zimmer, John
Williams, James Horner, Bill Ross and Alan
Silvestri to name some.
DeCrescent was a guest workshop pre-
senter at the recent Pre-Grammy week,
"Grammy Career Day" held on the campus of the
University of Southern California in conjunction
with USC's Thornton School of Music and The
Gibson Foundation. Needless to say, the road to
the top of the hill was not a cake walk for
DeCresent. She started in the music contracting
department at Universal Studios. After her boss
past away, DeCrescent took over thus becoming
the first female film music contractor at a major
studio at a time when the male dominated "good
ole boys" network was in full force. DeCrescent
reflected on those tough early days and smiles
when she says, "I love what I do. I did love it and
I still love it. The orchestras are phenomenal and
oddly enough, I couldn't read a note of music and
had no music background but I didn't have an ego
either. So I began to listen to people who could
advise me, people who I knew and trusted."
DeCrescent didn't deal with politics or favors; she
just hired the best musicians and built her repu-
tation on that. DeCresent stresses that network-
ing is very important not only for her line of work
but for any line of work. She examined her past
saying, "I was not the most aggressive person
around nor am I timid by any means but I learned
very early on that networking was important
'because for a music contractor, when you walk
.onto that stage, you're there representing the
musicians. But the only reason you are really
there is because your client, the composer hired
you." DeCresent is also adamant about repre-
senting the musicians she hires in terms of see-
,ing that they are properly paid for their time espe-
cially if they double on two or more instruments
to other details: .She also must maintain a rea-
sonable balance while walking that fine line that
serves the needs of everyone on the other side
of the glass in the studio control room from the
film's director, producer and the studio execs.
If you are a musician who has studied
your craft, mastered your instrument and qualify
for union membership, what does DeCrescent
look for in terms of an audition CD? She says, "A
demo should not be too long and should have the
flavor of what you do. It should represent every-
thing you do i.e., serious music, romantic, come-
dy, hip-hop but people don't have a long attention
span. Your entire demo should only be four min-
utes." DeCrescent also recommends that young
composers should do student -films, plays and
other local areas where they can get their foot in
the door to show what they can do.

Talking To An Attorney
By Burney Bivens, Esq., LFD
EVICTION FOR THE TENANT
The times are hard. You've been laid off and the bills are stacking up. Your child has
incurred medical expenses and you have no insurance to cover them. The landlord has
just handed you a letter demanding that you pay the back due rent within 3 days or sur-
render the premises. You're threatened with eviction. What happens next?
Your first step is to look again at the terms of the lease. Is there a grace period in the lease
that gives you extra time to pay? If so, has that time period come and gone? Does the
lease specify the length of time before an eviction notice can be filed? If so, how long
must the landlord wait or how much time does the landlord have to give you to pay up
before filing an eviction suit? How much longer does the lease run? Is it due to be
renewed in a month or two or is there a longer period of time left on the lease?
When you fail to pay the rent (or breach some other part of the lease like allowing aban-
doned cars to be parked in the front yard), the landlord must give you written notice to
correct the breach (pay up or move the cars). The tenant has a set period of time within
which to comply (usually 3-5 days). If you don't comply, the landlord then has to serve
a three day notice before going to the courthouse and filing an eviction lawsuit. This can
be accomplished by tacking a notice to the door of the premises if you are not home or
are ducking the landlord.
Once an eviction lawsuit has been filed a summons will be issued by the Clerk ofthe
Court. That is then given to the Sheriff's Office or to'a private process server to be given
to (served on) you. This Summons can also be posted on the door or given to an adult
who normally lives at the residence. In a normal lawsuit (like for a lawsuit seeking dam-
ages from a car accident), the defendant gets 20 days within which to answer. Under the
expedited procedure for an eviction you only get 7 days. Once you have filed your answer
(admitting or denying what the eviction complaint says) and any affirmative-defenses, the
court will set a hearing date. The court tries to set the date within 5 days or less (not
counting weekends or holidays). When answering the complaint, you must be careful
with the defenses that you raise. If anyd
of the court. In other words, if you fail to pay the rent, you lose your opportunity to argue
about what the landlord has failed to do with respect to the lease agreement. If the answer
to the complaint, claims that the rent has been-paid, you should be prepared to come to
court with cancelled checks, receipts or other proof that the rent has in fact been paid. If
no answer is filed within the time set forth in the Summons, a default will be entered
against you (you lose because you did not fight) and an eviction order will be entered
against you. If an answer was filed, a short trial will be held before the judge (no jury)
and he will decide who breached the lease contract and what the remedy should be to the
If you are the breaching party, the judge will issue an order telling the Sheriff to help the
landlord move you out as soon as possible. If the landlord has somehow breached the
lease, the judge will deny the eviction and require the landlord to remedy the defect
before requiring you to pay any more rent. The judge might even decrease the amount of
rent owed depending upon the particular facts of that case. Of course, once the landlord
has corrected the problem you will have to pay up all of the past due amount that was
determined by the judge. The court will also award attorney's fees and court costs'to
whoever wins the lawsuit.

Crying and Miserable On-Line Reader
You set yourself up'by confusing help with being used and also giving up your money. You
never should mix business with pleasure because it's a guaranteed recipe for pain. He used
you to get ahead and you can see early on that he's leaving you behind. If you heard that he's
dating, someone on the job, it's probably true. You can't do anything other than move on, be
glad that you got out early and pray for the new lady who will be his next sucker.
My nephew has left for college and has completely lost his mind. When he lived at home he
was quiet, mild mannered and well behaved. I hardly know him now that he's away from
home. He's still underage but he drinks, has tattoos and has become loud and rude. My sis-
ter simply turns her head and says he's an adult and I should mind my business. Is this nor-
mal when kids go off to college or should I intervene and get him back on track?
Loving Aunt San Bernardino, CA
You may be messing in business that doesn't belong to you. Your nephew is an adult and his
parents don't have any issues with his lifestyle and maybe you should do the same. If he's
still in college, getting good grades and staying out of trouble, then he's fine. You can't
impose your expectations on him but you can caution him about the drinking and any moral
issues. In other words, accept his newfound adult hood and be there with gentle guidance.
I have a platonic relationship with a male friend of four years but my fiance doesn't like it.
He has begun making hints that I've slept with my friend and accusing me of lying to him.
I've only known my fiance for two years and if I had to choose between the two men, I
would choose my friend. How can I convince my fiance that we're only friends and that
nothing is going on? This is becoming stressful because I love both men and want them in
my life. Help?
Sharon San Antonio, TX
Your future husband is jealous of your relationship with your male friend. It's your respon-
sibility to find balance as you seek to have both relationships. Invite your husband to be part
of the friendship so he can understand and be more open minded. Also be mindful of your
platonic friendship to make sure you're not giving your fiance reasons to complain. If things

SFlowers, Candy and Money ~
Some people don't know what love is. They think
they do but they don't. If we cared about each other,
relationships would survive, but most of them won't!
Valentine's Day has been described by some as "a day for lovers". How twist-
ed can they be?
If you love someone, everyday is Valentine's Day, every day is Mother's Day
or Father's Day and everyday is every other holiday.
What has the world come to when we have to send dead or dying flowers to
show our love for someone? When did bad tasting candy become a sign of how
much we love someone?
This Valentine's Day show some love to your man or woman by acing like
you love them, by telling them you love them or by telling them you don't love
Yes, being honest shows more love than African roses or Godiva chocolates.
Being responsible and dependable shows more love than a crab leg dinner at Red
A lot of guys think the more flowers and candy they give, the more nookie
they'll get on Valentine's night.
But be real, no one truly in love saves romance for one day out of the year.
Hell, the devil has changed the. calendar so much we don't even know when
Valentine's Day really is!
All we know is when the mall says it is or when the flower shop says-it is.
Again, good men and good women understand that every day is a romantic
day when you really love someone. If you can't afford flowers, your woman
should still love you. If Valentine's Day is not a good day to have sex, your part-
ner should still love you.
Instead pf spending all of your time on Valentine's Day with your dime piece
or your jump off, spend some time with mama or grandmamma. Spend some time
with your daughters, and sons.
This Valentine's Day I encourage you to be there with the people that have
been there for you. Everybody loves you when you're bearing gifts but the peo-
ple that really love you are there when you don't have anything.
If you don't want to show your parents, children, girl friends or boyfriends
love, give them some money. In a capitalist society money will get you what you
want from that woman or man much quicker than those artificial, dead or dying
flowers. (Buy Gantt's book "Beast Too: Dead Man Writing" and/or contact
