Financial Impact Estimate: This straw ballot, if implemented, will have a future direct financial impact that cannot be determined at this time. Determining the increase or decrease in costs to the City of Jacksonville is speculative. As for City revenue, the Library District will have the power to levy a property tax of up to one mill, and the Library District millage plus the Citys millage shall not exceed the lawful millage caps for the City of Jacksonville.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Hundreds of families were able to prepare their children with essential supplies for the new school year through the 6th Annual New Town Suc cess Zone Back to School Event held August 2nd in the Adams-Jenkins Sports and Music Complex. Every year 500 to 700 families from the New Town neighborhood attend the event. Children received free school supplies, cloth ing (unmentionables-childrens underwear), physicals, and eye exams for the upcoming school year. More than half of the people who live in New Town make less than $20,000 a year, which is below the poverty-line. Many fami lies in this area simply go without, and we try to take as much off the table to ensure kids will be ready for school. This is the commu nitys response to make certain our children will be prepared to learn from day one, said Executive Director of the New Town Success Zone, Dr. Irvin Pedro Cohen. The New Town Success Zone is a col laboration between the City of Jacksonville, that aims to support families and their chil drens intellectual, emotional and physical growth from cradle to college in a designated neighborhood of Jacksonville. It is modeled after the successful Harlems Children Zone in New York.

Put a stop to shoplifting! Shoplifters assume they wont get caught. Your strategy is to prove them wrong. The following tips require thought and ingenuity, but cost very little. € Alert employees are your best defense. Establish procedures for them to follow if they suspect shoplifting, and make sure they are familiar with shoplifting laws. € Make sure you can see everything that goes on in your store. Keep counters low, no more than waist-high. Mount mirrors in corners so there are no blind spots. € Arrange counters and display tables so theres no direct route to the exit. Some stores put turnstiles at entrances so the only way out is to pass the checkout counter. Place expensive items in the center of the store away from exits. € Arrange displays so that missing items are easily noticed. Place small items in neat rows or clearly defined patterns. Attach inventory alarm tags to expensive merchandise. Reverse alternate hangers of hanging garments to prevent grab and runs.Ž € Announce and observe a zero tolerance policy to prosecute shoplifters. The threat of being caught, questioned by police, put on trial and maybe even put in jail, may be enough to discourage shoplifters. What shoplifters use Shoplifters use the following to conceal items: € Bulky clothing: coats, pants and maternity outfits. € Packages, bags, backpacks and purses are hiding places, and sometimes they may have false bottoms. € Special props include hollowed-out books, fake casts, umbrellas, secret pockets, belts or hooks under coats. € Folded newspapers or magazines are used to hide small or flat items. What to look for € Be aware of customers hands „ and their pockets, purses, handkerchiefs. € Notice open packages, purses, shopping bags, backpacks. € Watch for customers who are nervous, have wandering eyes, are loitering or lingering in hidden areas. € Watch groups of people, especially if a person tries to distract you. Safety Wanted Suspect Police are looking for currently looking for 26-yearold Stephon Wright. He has active warrants for the following crimes. He is wanted for possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, dealing in stolen property, burglary, unlawful possession of a stolen credit card, and leaving the scene of an accident. Anyone who has any information about the location of this suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS or email at rewards@fccrimestoppers.com. You will remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000. One ofTwo Armed Burglary Suspect Arrested At approximately 3 a.m., police responded to an alarm call at a jewelry store, indicating that there was movement inside of the business. When officers arrived, they saw a man with long dreads on the roof of the business. The subject jumped from the roof and officers began pursuing the suspect. Officers chased the suspect, but eventually lost track of him. At the same time, additional officers started searching the area around the business in an attempt to locate any suspects involved in the burglary. The K-9 unit responded and developed a track from the jewelry store to another business, where they located a broken window. Blood was also found under the window. One of the officers determined that the window was too small for a person to fit and he continued to examine the property. The officer was led to a nearby pole barn and located the suspect, identified as 24-year-old Akeem Lovett, in a stack of pallets inside of the structure. Commands were given and Lovett eventually came out and was taken into custody. Lovett, who also had a fresh bleeding injury to his hand, was wearing a dark baseball-style cap, which matched one of the two suspects seen in the business surveillance video. Lovett was charged with armed burglary, burglary, grand theft (more than $20,000.00) and resisting without violence. All of the property was located inside of a bag that the suspects dropped when police arrived. At this time, the second suspect seen on the roof (with long dreads) at the burglary location has not been located. According to reports, Lovett was just released from prison in June. Two Brothers Arrested for Burglary Police arrested two brothers on multiple drug related charges thanks to proactive patrolling efforts. Just before 10:00 p.m., officers on foot patrol observed several subjects in front of the home. A marked patrol unit drove down the street and two subjects immediately fled on foot toward the rear of the building. As officers caught up with one suspect, the other continued to run as he threw a bag into the yard of a daycare center. Once the caught suspect was taken into custody, another officer located the bag and determined it contained several hydromorphone pills. Both suspects were arrested and were found with drugs and cash. The suspects, 22-year old Trae Ward and his 20year-old brother Ryan, are both charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a school and drug related loitering, a county ordinance. Ryan is also charged with obstruction and violating probation on a prior charge of possession of cocaine. Trae is also charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a school. Police say Trae Ward was also arrested the day before by an officer who tried to stop a vehicle that was speeding and driving erratically. When the vehicle finally pulled over, Trae was charged with fleeing to elude. He was released on bond four hours later. This is the ninth arrest for both Wards, who have violent criminal histories involving aggravated battery as well as multiple weapons and drug charges. Bank Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested with Help from Public A bank armed robbery suspect was finally arrested after detectives were given tips from the public. The investigation began at approximately 9:40 a.m., when police responded to a bank. Upon arrival, they spoke with an employee who indicated that an unknown male suspect entered the bank and walked up to a bank teller implying he had a handgun. He handed her a note demanding money and then fled the area in the direction of the parking lot. The week after, detectives received a tip after a viewer saw the story on a local television station. The tip led detectives to identify 41-year-old Arron Troy Carter as a suspect. A few days later, robbery detectives were able to locate Carter. He did not cooperate with the investigation, but based on the information and evidence, Carter was arrested. Akeem Lovett Arron Carter TraeWard Ryan Ward On the Lookout!

The Dame has already sealed her place in history as the wife of the nations first Prime Minister when the country gained its independence from England in 1973. That was the year she famously danced an upbeat Caribbean number with Prince Charles as her partner, instead of a traditional waltz during a ball. Her late husband is regarded as the Father of The Nation and the international airport in Nassau is named in his honor. The Governor-Generals post is the highest in the land and is considered as the representative of the reigning British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

Some 200 firefighters were called in to battle the blaze on the intersection of Broad Street and Cherry Street. Several of them were taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion while one was treated for a broken foot. It took four hours to contain the blaze. According to the Jesup Fire Department, the fire is believed to have started in the Fair Haven store. Business that were destroyed included a computer shop and consignment store. A pet store was also destroyed. Several animals were saved, while others perished after the fire grew too intense for rescuers.

The impact from the hit caused her to collide with a garbage truck. The driver of the truck was able to stop before driving her. The girl was airlifted to hospital. Anyone with information is asked to contact police. Hit and Run Leaves Local Child in Hospital


By FRED WITT Florida Sports Wire With Friday nights preseason home opener on his mind, Jaguars second-year head coach Gus Bradley was pleased with Tuesdays practice. Good day. We introduced Tampa Bay, not so much a lot of information about Tampa Bay, just more about how we would go about the week preparing, noted Bradley. And the whole idea is to prepare so that you can trust your preparation so that you play well when the game time comes, and it starts today. time since 2010 Jacksonville, and Tampa Bay have played each other in the preseason since a stretch of nine consecutive years with preseason contests. The Jaguars held an all-time lead of 6-3 in the preseason series and downed the Buccaneers in Jacksonville, 19-13 in the last preseason action between the two teams. PRACTICE NOTES The Jaguars held secondyear starting safety Johnathan Cyprien out of practice Bradley made the decision to pull him out of practice. The decision to not practice was precautionary. Well, I think you have year because it is preseason. I think weve had some signs like this with some other guys. We saw it coming, so we just wanted to error on being conservative, Bradley said. Safety Joe Young, in his fourth NFL season out of Rutgers and signed by Jackfor Cyprien. Hes done a pretty good job. Hes always showed up on special teams. Again, a guy thats trying to make a name for himself when he gets his reps, Bradley said of Young. Very physical he can go. I think hes getting a better comfort level with the defense. But hes really showed up on special teams. LOOKING FOR CONSISTENCY Head coach Gus Bradley said Tuesday hes seeking consistency from all the units as training camp entered the second week. I think the biggest thing is youre looking for spurts of consistency. Thats what were trying to train those younger guys. We say, Hey to play at this level, and to play a lot, youve got to have that consistency. And its no different with the units. Were looking for that consistency. BALL RETURNS TO PRACTICE The Jaguars activated cornerback Alan Ball from the physically unable to perform list. Ball returned to practice Monday in a limited role. He training camp with an ankle injury sustained during minicamp in June. The seventhyear pro started 15 games for Jacksonville last season, and two interceptions. With Ball back, the Jaguars have one player remaining on the PUP list. Linebacker Dekoda Watson (groin) should return in a few weeks. JAGUARS WITH TAMPA BAY CONNECTIONS Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley spent three seasons with the Buccaneers, working as Defensive Quality Control (2006) and as the linebackers linebacker Allen Bradford round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2011 NFL Draft, playing in one game during the 2011 season. While linebacker Geno Hayes entered pick by the Buccaneers in the years with Tampa Bay, Hayes played in 56 games, starting four forced fumbles, four interceptions and one fumble recovery. Hayes also played one season under Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith in Chicago.PAGE 9 THE STAR AUGUST 9, 2014 SPORTS Jaguars Preseason ScheduleAug. 8, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7:30 p.m. (Home) Aug.14, at Chicago Bears 8:00 p.m. ESPN (Away) Aug. 22, at Detroit Lions 7:30 p.m. (Away) Aug. 28, Atlanta Falcons 6:00 p.m. (Home)Jaguars begin preseason (Photo by Nancy Beecher) Marcedes Lewis is in his ninth NFL season and one of the Jaguars big offensive weapons.

LAS VEGAS Paul Georges long road back from a gruesome injury has Hours after suffering an his right leg in Friday nights Team USA showcase at UNLVs Thomas & Mack Center, ers small forward underwent successful surgery at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. The procedure was performed by Dr. David Silverberg, Dr. Joseph Yu and Riley Williams, who is the Team USA physician as well as the lead physician for the Brooklyn Nets. No timetable was given for his recovery, but its clear that hes in danNBA season. It is way too early to speculate on his return, as the No. 1 priority for everyone will be his recovery, Pacers team president Larry Bird said in a statement. Our initial discussions with our doctors and the doctors in Las Vegas have us very optimistic. We are hopeful at some point Indianapolis to continue his recovery. Georges injury was felt by the entire basketball community, with his Team USA teammates clearly disturbed by what they had seen, and questions instantly arising about what this all meant for a national program that has been on such a fantastic run the past nine years.NBA Star, Paul George recovering after horrifying leg injury DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.

As Moms we allow toxic negative thoughts to run through our minds every single day. Its time to stop it this school year! Moms can be defeated in their parenting before they get out o f bed in the morning. Thoughts cant be removed„they have to be replaced. So here is what every Mom needs to try: Face the fear. Just because you arent good at math, fo r example, doesnt mean thats going to be your childs truth. Its hard, but arrest those thoughts as soon as they enter into your mind (handcuff it literally). Then replace the negative Jimmy isnt going to getŽ math thought with Jimmy is smart, resourceful and able to do it!Ž (Plus Mom, you can hire a tutor or grab a homework coach to suppor t him). Repeat these healingŽ thoughts and strategies every time those old self-defeating ones come up. 2.Have patience with yourself: Life takes patience„especially life as a Mom! So the cookies burned up„run to the store and put some store bought cookies on the tray to send into school! So your child is wearing the same socks two days in a row„he/she wont die, cut yoursel f some slack. Take a deep breath, slowly exhale and give yourself the gift of having patience with YOU every day this school year. 3.Attend to your own needs: Its hard for Moms to put their oxygen masks on first.Ž I know. Ive raised fou r kids! The boldest thing Moms can do is dare to take care of themselves first. Get up early and go out on that Saturday morning run. Grab that cup of coffee with a friend for girl talk. Take a long bath locked behind closed doors at midnight! Attending to your own needs first is taking the time to honor you, and preparing to be the best Mom possible for your kids this school year. You cant be who you havent nurtured and you cant give what you dont have. 4.Know what makes you smile: We lose sight of how much joy our children really do bring into our lives underneath the crushing weight of the responsibility of parenting. This school year, remember over and over again wha t you love about your children. What do your kids do that only they can do to make you smile? My son is the only one on the planet that can flash those eyes and teeth and melt my heart! I know this and I look forward to it. Moms, plan for moments of laughter throughout the school year while in the car line, waiting after practices or trudging through homework. Lighten your life by knowing what makes you smile. 5.Put everything in perspective: Before you know it, the kids are gone. I know this sounds clich but, because I am acutely aware of how real this really is, I want to encourage you to stroll slowly through this school year rathe r than trying to get through it in a dash! The scariest thing you can do as a Mom is to will yourself to keep the bigge r picture in mind. Dont sacrifice the relationship with your kids while trying to preserve your reputation as Mom.Ž It can be hard to keep the bigger picture in mind when they wont get out of bed in the morning; but trust me its worth keeping a lifetime with your child in mind every single day this school year.
