Robert Lee Spaulding 96, a member of two very prominent McIntosh County families, passed away on Saturday, July 27th at Community Hospice in Jacksonville, FL. Bob, as he preferred being called, was born in McIntosh County on July 8, 1917 to Henry Spaulding, Jr. and Hannah Lewis Spaulding. He was the grandson of Henry Spaulding, Sr. and Roberta Scott Spaulding of Bodge Field (now Spauldings Point) in Shellman Bluff, and George Lewis and Lucy (Bacon) Lewis of Sapelo Island. He received his early education in the school system of Darien and Jacksonville, FL. It was in Jacksonville that he met, and married Maude Bivins. They moved to Brooklyn, NY where he became an entrepreneur selling shoes, owned and operated a Taxi Cab Company, a Laundry Mat, and a Dry Cleaners. To this union was born one daughter, Vermelle, who preceded him in death. Many young people from McIntosh County began their careers in New York either through Bob, or working with or for him. In 1956 he married Mattie Lee Cloud, and the two of them owned and operated a Day Care Business until they retired in the mid 1990s, and relocated to Florida. He was preceded in death by his parents, Maude Spaulding and Lula M. Spaulding; grandparents, wives, Maude and Mattie; sister, Louise Spaulding, 1 grandchild, Hussein Sharrieff and 2 greatgrandchildren, Shafika, and Lucille.

Some are pretty much like the Coca-Cola driver peddling hot drinks throughout my old neighborhood. How about the time when one of my football coaches offered cash under the table for us if we made major hits, touchdowns, interceptions, etc.? I have seen it all. Some has been petty and some had the potential of serious implications and outcomes if I would have agreed to it. I have avoided or turned down 96% of the attempts made on me but I am sure there are many who havent had the will power to turn away. How do you usually avoid it? It is easy according to then Mozambique President Chissano: Dont pay any bribes; there wont be any briberyŽ. In other words the offers will be made to us all and the key to avoiding it is to just turn them down and walk away. I have taken his advice to heart. A great spawning ground for corruption are the minority business programs throughout our nation. City, county, state, federal and corporations have some form of outreach and technical assistance for businesses that come from racial/socio economic disadvantaged groups. Most require participants to be certifiedŽ as a minority, female, etc. type of business ownership. There is so much fraud involved in many of these applications that we cant count them all. Cheating applicant, cheating employee overseeing the program and usually a cheating white owned seasoned business conspiring with the others. Every one of these programs has some form of corruption in their daily process. Some do it for quick bucks and some do it to prolong their racist attitudes and/or greed. I have had experience with mayoral offices during my travels. The Thomas Barnes administration in Gary, IN was a trip! They would demand my members who had won contracts competitively to pay a feeŽ before they received payment. One protesting member was told by an employee in the Deputy Mayors office, What? Do you think we just give these contracts away?Ž He finally got his money after filing a claim in court. They gave him a check for the money due as he walked up the court house steps. My experience with Mayor Willie Browns office of San Francisco was quite interesting. We set up an introductory meeting with the Mayor. While I was waiting in the Mayors office, a unscrupulous guy comes up to me and said, Im Charlie, best friend and advisor of the Mayor, you need to meet with me outside before your meetingŽ. As we went outside the building I stated, I know what you are trying to do. So, just go to Hell and I am out of hereŽ. There was a similar experience with Mayor Marc Morials office in New Orleans. We called for a meeting and they said to wait for a formal response. A couple of days later I received a phone call from this private attorney. He said that the mayor would like me to see him first. So, I went to his office and we had a discussion. What it amounted to was that the NBCC must hire him and use him as the communicator with the Mayor. Paying legal fees in order to speak to an elected official? I dont think so! A few years later this attorney was indicted for his shenanigans and spent some good time in prison. There is much corruption going on with the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA). This is similar to a free trade treaty. AGOA certified nations in Africa may export goods to America without paying any duties. There are two big abuses going on. 1. German auto manufacturer BMW has built a plant in South Africa for the sole purpose of shipping the product to the United States duty free. In essence, a European firm is benefitting from a program meant for African firms. India has jumped into this AGOA action. The island nation of Mauritius is located in the Indian Ocean and has been given nominal statusŽ as an African nation. India is shipping tons of raw products to this island of mainly Indian expatriates and then shipping the finished products to the Unites States under AGOA benefits. How many trillions of dollars are taken out of our general economy because of corruption? How many good decisions and acts of leadership are lost to bribery, kick-backs and many other forms of corruption? It is an attitude that focuses on greed, quick money and a life style of cheating. You cant get to Heaven living that way. Sooner or later most of the corrupt operators will get their justice. Too bad, most will be replaced with others of the same ilk. Just how deep is corruption? Too deep! Beyond the Rhetoric By Harry C. Alford Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce. Website: www.nationalbcc.org. Email: halford@nationalbcc.org.

PAGE 4THE STARAUGUST 10, 2013 Youth News Bennett College Board Chair Praises New President Bennett Colleges new president, Dr. Rosalind Fuse Hall is a strong presenceŽ who stands out, Charles Barrentine, the chairman of the board of trustees, said at a press conference this week introducing her to the community.Ž Her leadership also stands out,Ž Barrentine said. Bennett can no longer afford to just blend in. Bennett has to stand out, and she has the capability to make that happen.Ž Barrentine, a retired vice president for Eastman Kodak, leads a team of board members who took part in the selection process to bring Dr. Fuse-Hall to the private, four-year, historically black, liberal arts college for women, located in Greensboro, N.C. The Jacksonville, Fla. resident is a graduate of LeMoyne College and worked at Kodak from 1972 to 2006. He has served on the board 21 months. In interviews, the chairman said Dr. Fuse-Hall is the right person for Bennett at a time when it seeks to increase enrollment, create an atmosphere of global learning, double or tripleŽ its endowment and add new disciplines At the opening press conference on Monday, July 1, the board chair said that Bennett does an outstanding job educating women.Ž He noted that in last years graduating class, 44 percent of its graduates were accepted into graduate and professional schools and 40 percent of this years graduating class were STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) majors. That is good for any school regardless of size,Ž he said. We are doing a great job, but there is a reason for that. When you graduate from Bennett, you walk out with what I call the two cs, capability and confidence. When you have those, there is no limit to what you can do.Ž He noted that Bennett has set a goal of increasing enrollment from about 730 to 1,000. From 2004 to 20ll, we were on a pretty good growth path,Ž he said. We kind of stalled. Now, Dr. Fuse Hall is going to get us back up there again.Ž Dr. Fuse-Halls arrival comes at a time when Bennett, like many other historically black colleges and universities, is facing challenges as the climate around higher education is changing. Closer scrutiny of affirmative action threatens admissions plans at majority white schools, but highlights the relevancy of HBCUs as a haven for most African Americans who earn degrees. The doubling of student loan rates after Congress failed to block the changes also threaten the bottom line of colleges if higher education becomes unaffordable and students question the benefit of pursuing degrees and compiling debt when few jobs are available. Barrentine said Dr. Fuse-Hall would be working to increase endowments and reach out to the business community and organizations to build partnerships and relationships to help Bennetts students. She has a tall order,Ž Barrentine said. There is much expected, but its kind of catching when you have a boss who comes to work excited about being there.Ž Dr. Fuse-Hall assumed her duties July 1 as the 17th president on July 1, succeeding Dr. Esther Terry. Dr. Fuse-Hall has 25 years of experience in higher education. Most recently, she has been interim executive director of Title III Programs at Florida A&M University and chief of staff to the president there. She has served as executive assistant to the chancellor at North Carolina Central University and corporate secretary at the General Administration for the University of North Carolina, the 17-campus system. For more information on Bennett College, visit the colleges website at www.bennett.edu For additional information on Charles Barrentine or Dr. Fuse-Hall, to arrange an interview, please contact one of the media off icials at the top of the release. Dr. Fuse-Hall is recognized How to Save on Back to School Shopping(StatePoint) Getting everything for back to school shopping can be stressful. Not only does the whole family need to get organized for the upcoming academic year, but doing so can be expensive. To make the back-to-school season easier and more affordable, the shopping experts at Dollar General are sharing convenient and cost-effective tips to prep the family for a great school year: Clothes Dont spend a fortune outfitting those quickly-growing arms and legs. For school uniforms, research online low prices, discounts and free shipping offers on all the basic collared shirts and pants. Keep your kids looking good longer with a wide assortment of basic jeans, sweaters and sweatshirts for those upcoming fall and winter days. This way, you can feel comfortable replacing clothing when they are outgrown. Time to Eat The importance of serving kids breakfast cant be overstated. Keep kids fueled for success by stocking up on cereal, oatmeal and fruits for busy mornings. Quick and healthy, these require little effort and make an affordable way to get the day started. Think about convenience and variety with school day lunches. Pack hazelnut cocoa spread and jelly sandwiches, turkey and Swiss cheese wraps or hearty soups. All are easy to prepare and easy on the wallet. Go nuts and give your kids a protein kick at lunch or snack time. You can save by doling portions of cashews or peanuts. Fruits and vegetables are also great options as they provide vitamins and minerals. Be sure to have plenty of lunch bags, napkins and sandwich bags for easy packing. By finding your food and supply staples at a discount store such as Dollar General or Dollar General Market stores, you can easily save on school breakfasts, lunches and snacks. School Supplies Make shopping for school supplies an organized effort. Before you head to the store, do a quick inventory of what you already have and its condition to determine what you need. Cross reference the school supplies list from your childs school to be sure you dont miss anything. If you have multiple children, save by letting them share certain items at home such as scissors, glue, crayons and markers.

Recently a subject faked a vehicle accident by bumping into another vehicle in an attempt to rob the driver of their purse. When you see an accident yourself, there may be times you feel you need to help out. There will be times when someone will really need a hand, but there may also be times when it is a trap. Here are some tips to keep in mind when such an event takes place: € Lighted Area. Do not pull over until you can find an area that is well lit. € Populated. Along with lighting, look for a place that has people. € Call 911. Stay on the phone, give your location. € Lock your vehicle with the windows up. Talk to the person through your window and tell them that you are on the phone with law enforcement. € Drive off. At the first hint of foul play, drive off and contact law enforcement. € Pull in to a convenience store and have the clerk call for law enforcement. € Description. Gather as much information as you can: Tag number, color of car, make, model, number of doors, suspect clothing, height, weight, race There may also be times where your car gets hit. You must be cautious at times like this as well: € When driving, always carry a camera (a camera phone will suffice), pen, and paper. This way, if you're involved in an accident which hints of phoniness, you can validate inner suspicions with facts. € Snap photos from every angle of the involved vehicles, with special focus on the damage. Also, capture on camera the license plate, as well as photos of all the passengers in the other vehicle. € Always make sure to obtain the drivers driver license number, vehicle registration information, car insurance information, name, address, and phone number. € If something seems fishy,Ž call the police. It may help prevent from possible robberies, scam, future financial problems, etc. €Be careful without how much personal information you disclose. You don't want to discover two weeks later that your identity has been stolen. € Also do not make any claims regarding the accident yet at the scene of the accident. Try to save it for when you talk with your insurance company. Safety Man Shoots and Kills Tow TruckDriver At the request of an apartment complex, 36year-old David Herr had been removing vehicles that were illegally parked. Her was in the process of towing 31-year-old Triston Johnsons 2001 Jaguar SType just before 3 p.m. when Johnson confronted him. Johnson pulled out a gun and shot Herr twice. When police and Fire Rescue personnel arrived, they tried to save Herr, but their efforts were futile and he died at the scene. One of the officers went to the apartment complex and encountered Johnson. They exchanged gunfire and Johnson was hit once. Johnson was airlifted to a hospital and is in critical condition. The Homicide and Internal Affairs detectives are investigating the incident. Johnson will be charged with murder and attempted murder of a law enforcement officer. The officer who shot Johnson was not injured and has been placed on administrative leave for his use of his firearm. Triston Johnson Man Shot Down During Youth Football Game A man was shot and killed at a youth football game. Two men, including the victims son, were later found with firearms, but police do not know yet if they were behind the murder at the game. At approximately 8:00 p.m., police officers responded to a location where a football game for young children was being held in reference to a report of shots being fired. Upon their arrival, it was determined that two masked gunmen with their identities concealed, singled out the victim and began shooting at him in the presence of 300-400 people that had been watching their children play football. People ran for cover as the shots were being fired. The victim fell to the ground at which point he was fatally shot. He was pronounced deceased at the scene. The victim has been identified as 40-year-old Mr. Brenton D. Coleman Sr. About a week later the suspects possibly responsible for the slaying were pulled over for speeding at 1:15 a.m. As the officer attempted to continue with the traffic stop, the driver of the vehicle fled the scene and dropped a fully loaded 9 mm handgun in the backyard of a nearby residence. The two other suspects, identified as Gerrell Houston, 27, and Brenton Coleman Jr., 21, fled as well to a nearby residence and eventually surrendered after a brief stand-off. In the backseat of the vehicle, police found two loaded AK-47 rifles. Police also discovered that Coleman was the son of the murdered victim. Both men were arrested. Coleman was charged with trespassing in the vehicle and being held without bail. Houston is charged with two counts possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, trespassing and driving with a suspended license. Both men denied possession of the guns that were found in the vehicle. Police also have not yet confirmed these suspects to be responsible to the shooting at the football game. According to reports, Coleman had been charged a couple months ago for grand theft of a firearm, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of cocaine, possession of a firearm during a felony, carrying a concealed weapon and removing the serial number from a firearm where his bond was set at $15,000. Brenton ColemanJr. Gerrell Houston Woman Tries to Smuggle Drugs for Husband in Jail Tactical Investigations Unit arrested three people for plotting to smuggle contraband into jail through the work farm, which worked with the police. Police say Danny Lee Fletcher, 32, and Cynthia Leah Fletcher, 48, are a married couple. Investigators learned that Danny, who was arrested May 25, 2013 for violation of probation, was having Cynthia bring illegal narcotics to Brody Hilton, 34, who works for the university. The report indicates that the narcotics were given to Hilton, who was to deliver contraband to Danny. It was reported that Hilton received three bags. In the bags were 13 cans of snuff type tobacco, four 16-ounce Mountain Dew sodas, a pair of Nike shoes, a can of Folgers coffee, and seven bags of candy. Officials found an unknown type of pill and half a pill, which was tested positive for oxycodone, in the cigarette pack. Each suspect will face a charge of conspiracy to introduce contraband into a correctional facility. Hiltons arrest affidavit indicates he will face additional charges of possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. Hilton's bond is $10,500; Cynthia Fletcher's bond is $5,000; and Danny Fletcher has no bond. Danny Fletcher Cynthia Fletcher Brody Hilton

By Demetrius Lawrence Photos by George and MaShawn Mincey Danny Clay had plenty of reason to be filled with good cheer when he brought his vocal talents to Glynn County last week. Why? This was a hometown gig! After all, the audience was filled with people he knew from high school, his mom, church family, and a host of other family and friends. Danny Clay made it clear that Brunswick was his home and he was indeed glad to be back. With song selections ranging from all of Luther Vandross' albums, Clay demonstrated his vocal diversity at his By Popular Demand A Tribute To Luther Vandross concert Saturday night at the Glynn Academy Memorial Auditorium. He kicked off the show with an acapella version of "It's So Amazing" after thanking the vociferous crowd for being there. Although the show was more than an hour late, the crowd erupted into applause at every word of his note-shattering vocalizations. Clay not only sang countless Luther Vandross' songs, he gave a passionate testimony, and ministered to couples before departing the stage around 11:00 p.m., greeted by family, old friends, and fans alike. Clay never missed an opportunity to thank the audience for its attendance. "I wish I could hug every one of you," he said to the crowd. "Thank you Brunswick, I love you so much." Clays no stranger to performing in Brunswick, having performed in Jane Macon Middle School and Brunswick High School's show choirs. Since then for Clay, life's certainly had its ups and downs. When it comes to music however, for Danny, its been a definite up. Those who have followed his career know that Clay was discovered during a chance meeting by Nephew Tommy while recording an episode of The Steve Harvey Morning Show in 2007. That unexpected encounter led to Dannys performing a medley of Luther Vandross songs for a Steve Harvey talent show known as Radio StarŽ. Clays performance drew an overwhelming response from the Steve Harvey Morning Show audience and his career skyrocketed. He was subsequently invited by Steve Harvey to provide the opening act for Harveys Tear Your Mouth OutŽ comedy tour. Following completion of the tour with Steve Harvey, Clay went on to perform with such R&B elites as Ne-Yo, Avant, Musiq Soulchild and John Legend. He then recorded and released his first national single entitled Foolish PrideŽ on the CMG Music Label. In December 2009, destiny struck again when Danny Clay was invited to be a cast member in the play Madeas Big Happy Family by iconic stage and film producer/director Tyler Perry. Clay played the part of the emasculated, bumbling auto mechanic Harold Jones next to such names as Tyler Perry (who starred in his own production), N.A.A.C.P. Award winning actress Cassi Davis, Palmer Williams, Jr, Chaundra Currelly-Young and Cheryl Pepsi Riley. Danny was also given the finale spot of each performance to sing the Luther Vandross classic, If Only for One NightŽ. These stunning performances and opportunities came on top of a number of set-backs in Clays life, including substance abuse and incarceration. With a second chance at life, Clay performs with passion and appreciation, not taking anything for granted. Danny Clays future is bright as he continues to dazzle audiences with his multi-talented abilities which include singing, acting, and motivational speaking like he did this past weekend. He promised us a night of LOVE, ROMANCE, AND ELEGANCE and he delivered that and some!

ANTIGUA:For the second year in a row, a beauty from Dominica walked away with the title of Miss Jaycees regional pageant. Leslassa Shillingford wowed the crowd by winning Best Swimwear, Best Performing Talent, Best Interview and Most Photogenic Second runner up was Taitu Goodwin of Anguilla. Antigua and Barbudas Raynell Carroll, won Best Evening Gown. The event saw 11 contestants from the Caribbean. The pageant is one of the highlights of the countrys annual Carnival festivities AUGUST10, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9John Oehser jaguars.com Almost two weeks in, Maurice Jones-Drew feels good. He wont say he feels better than expected,Ž because he didnt doubt he would return and play this season, but the Jaguars three-time Pro Bowl running back is running well in 2013 training camp practice, and appears stronger each day. Thats true even though Jones-Drew spent the offseason rehabilitating a foot injury, and even though many observers wondered if he would be ready for training camp. Jones-Drew, entering his eighth season, indeed was ready for training camp. He has practiced since day one, and said Wednesday he likes his progress. Is he where he wants to be? Right now, yeah,Ž Jones-Drew said Wednesday following practice at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields. I still have a lot to improve on, but as of right now, cutting and conditioning-wise, I feel like Im right where I need to be.Ž Jones-Drew said he never worried through the offseason. And though speculation among observers was that he might not be ready for camp or the regular season because of the injury and an off-field incident in St. Augustine, tight end Marcedes Lewis said he has learned to not doubt his former college teammate. Im not surprised,Ž Lewis said. Hes the same guy Ive been around for however many years … eight years here now, and three in college. Thats just who he is. People would ask me about him and Id say, Dude, as long as Maurice and his family are OK, everything else will work itself out. The football stuff, I was never worried about. Everyone else said, Oh, adversity . . I was never worried about that. When Maurice puts his pads on, and hes well enough to be back there, hes not going to hurt himself or the team. Its not something I worry about.ŽSuns Shut Out 2-0 in Pensacola Opener JONES-DREW:Theres no pain in my foot. Im cutting. I feel greatŽ PENSACOLA, Fla. The Jacksonville Suns (27-19, 61-51) dropped their series opener at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium by a final score of 2-0, as the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (23-22, 48-66) inched closer in the Southern League South division race. Despite a strong start from right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (3-3), the Suns were shut out for the second consecutive game. One night after Eric Jokisch fired a no-hitter against Jacksonville at Bragan Field, the Suns once again had trouble pushing runs across. Their best chance came in the very first inning against Blue Wahoos starter Jon Moscot (1-0). With two outs and Derek Dietrich representing the lead runner at second base, Zack Cox singled into the outfield. Dietrich raced home but was thrown out by Blue Wahoos right-fielder Yorman Rodriguez. Devin Lohman gave the Blue Wahoos the only run they would need with a third inning RBI single, and Pensacola added another run later in the frame on a double play ball. DeSclafani allowed just the two runs, but was still tagged with his third loss in six decisions. The right-hander allowed seven hits in six and a third innings before giving way to Grant Dayton, posting four strikeouts and walking two batters. Moscot, meanwhile, settled down after a shaky first frame. Making his second start of the season for Pensacola, the right-hander surrendered just four hits and struck out five. Trevor Bell pitched a perfect top of the ninth for his 12th save. The Indianapolis Colts today signed outside linebacker Daniel Adongo. We are excited as an organization with the acquisition of Daniel Adongo,Ž said General Manager Ryan Grigson. He is not only an elite athlete and rising international rugby player, but he is an exceptional competitor and human being that has the right makeup for our sport. We all look forward to watching his growth and development in the ensuing weeks.Ž Adongo, 6-5, 257 pounds, is a 23-year-old Kenyan national who most recently played for the Southern Kings of Super 15 Rugby, the highest level of pro rugby in the world. Previously, he played in the 2012 Varsity Cup for the University of Pretoria Tuks and is currently working towards earning his degree from the school. In 2011, Adongo was signed by the Vodacom Blue Bulls, but was released from his contact after six months to join the New Zealand ITM Cup team Counties Manukau. Adongo graduated from Strathmore High School (Nairobi, Kenya) in 2006 and attended the University of South Africa the following year. He also attended the Sharks Academy, a rugby academy accredited by South African Rugby, and made his senior debut in the 2010 Vodacom Cup. In addition, Adongo played for the Kenya Harlequins junior team before going on to play for Kenyas U-18 and U-19 national teams.Rugby Star Adongo Makes History: First Kenyan To Play In NFLRihanna Returns To Barbados For CarnivalPop Princess Rihanna returned to home to show off a lot more than her hot new haircut. Despite her fame, the 25 year-old proves herself to be proud of her heritage and posted her pics on Instagram. Rihanna took to the streets with other culture keepers last week when the island celebrated Koodament, their version of Carnival which commemorates the crop harvest. The celebration which is also referred to by some as a crop over festival is said to have its roots back in the days when slaves on the island completed their sugar cane harvest.
