UPDATE: From Sun-sentinel.com

WEST PALM BEACH - Jurors on Friday found Nathan Walker Jr., guilty of eleven counts of sexual battery, kidnapping, burglary and grand theft auto in the brutal assault of a Dunbar Village woman and her son.

They acquitted Walker, 17, on three counts.

Earlier Friday, a separate jury returned guilty verdicts on eight counts of sexual battery, kidnapping and burglary against co-defendant Tommy Poindexter for the same assault.

Jurors acquitted him on three additional sexual battery counts, one count of impairing a telephone line and one count of promoting sexual performance by a child.

Walker, Poindexter and a third young man who has already pleaded guilty, 16-year-old Avion Lawson, face sentencing Oct. 13. All are looking at possibly spending the rest of their life in prison.(Source)

Danyl Johnson: Coming to America!



















According to theholloywoodgossip.com, Danyl Johnson, the X Factor contestant who brought Simon Cowell to his feet, will appear on the Today's show next week.

Danyl's performance on the British version of American Idol was incredible. Move over Maxwell, Justine Timberlake and Usher. Danyl is definitely taking over the game. Soul/Rock is about to dominate.

BUY SHERI JONES-MOFFETT'S ALBUM TODAY!!

From Youtube:

Sheri Jones-Moffett, the voice that brought us the smash #1 hit ENCOURAGE YOURSELF has been part of our Gospel conscience for the past 12 years. Her path throughout this industry is like a voyage around the world and each stop in her career is like a stamp in a passport marking a new destination and new experience. Without each stop, Moffett would not have become the completed work we hear today on her debut solo CD RENEWED. Moffett started her course as part of Donald Lawrences now legendary Tri-City Singers, Gospels IT-choir of the 1990s. Breaking into the gospel industry, Moffett landed at a place where she could be mentored by one of the genres most prolific songwriters and producers, Donald Lawrence. Donald took me under his wing, recalled Moffett. He said he got a very strong feeling in his heart to raise me and train me. And even now with this release I wanted to make sure he saw all that he had given me and I took the things he taught me and put it into action.

KINGDOM LIVING AND THINKING BY DR. CINDY TRIMM













I APOLOGIZE TO T.O.

I made a comment on Sandrarose.com that I was not watching the The T.O. Show because I thought it would assault the Black community with more coonery and buffoonery that we don't need. This is the second time I was wrong about a reality show.

The T.O. Show is better than the Real Housewives of Atlanta. At least, The T.O. Show is not sending the Civil Rights Movement back a thousand years with petty bickering and fighting amongst the cast. It is showing black women doing the darn thing. I sure hope his attorney is a Black woman, then T.O. would definitely score major points in my book.

DR. CINDY TRIMM, YOU BETTER PREACH

BISHOP WEEKS, AVOID ENVY!!

Memo to Bishop Weeks: Don't become envious or insecure and get your bow tie bent out of shape when Prophetess Christina's popularity grows bigger than yours. You know how you men can be.

The 12 most annoying types of Facebookers




*** If you need help with your Facebook addiction, please click here to join Facebook Anonymous****

According to CNN, here are 12 of the most annoying types of Facebook users:

The Let-Me-Tell-You-Every-Detail-of-My-Day Bore. "I'm waking up." "I had Wheaties for breakfast." "I'm bored at work." "I'm stuck in traffic." You're kidding! How fascinating! No moment is too mundane for some people to broadcast unsolicited to the world. Just because you have 432 Facebook friends doesn't mean we all want to know when you're waiting for the bus.

The Self-Promoter. OK, so we've probably all posted at least once about some achievement. And sure, maybe your friends really do want to read the fascinating article you wrote about beet farming. But when almost EVERY update is a link to your blog, your poetry reading, your 10k results or your art show, you sound like a bragger or a self-centered careerist.

The Friend-Padder. The average Facebook user has 120 friends on the site. Schmoozers and social butterflies -- you know, the ones who make lifelong pals on the subway -- might reasonably have 300 or 400. But 1,000 "friends?" Unless you're George Clooney or just won the lottery, no one has that many. That's just showing off.

The Town Crier. "Michael Jackson is dead!!!" You heard it from me first! Me, and the 213,000 other people who all saw it on TMZ. These Matt Drudge wannabes are the reason many of us learn of breaking news not from TV or news sites but from online social networks. In their rush to trumpet the news, these people also spread rumors, half-truths and innuendo. No, Jeff Goldblum did not plunge to his death from a New Zealand cliff.

The TMIer. "Brad is heading to Walgreens to buy something for these pesky hemorrhoids." Boundaries of privacy and decorum don't seem to exist for these too-much-information updaters, who unabashedly offer up details about their sex lives, marital troubles and bodily functions. Thanks for sharing.

The Bad Grammarian. "So sad about Fara Fauset but Im so gladd its friday yippe". Yes, I know the punctuation rules are different in the digital world. And, no, no one likes a spelling-Nazi schoolmarm. But you sound like a moron.

The Sympathy-Baiter. "Barbara is feeling sad today." "Man, am I glad that's over." "Jim could really use some good news about now." Like anglers hunting for fish, these sad sacks cast out their hooks -- baited with vague tales of woe -- in the hopes of landing concerned responses. Genuine bad news is one thing, but these manipulative posts are just pleas for attention.

The Lurker. The Peeping Toms of Facebook, these voyeurs are too cautious, or maybe too lazy, to update their status or write on your wall. But once in a while, you'll be talking to them and they'll mention something you posted, so you know they're on your page, hiding in the shadows. It's just a little creepy.

The Crank. These curmudgeons, like the trolls who spew hate in blog comments, never met something they couldn't complain about. "Carl isn't really that impressed with idiots who don't realize how idiotic they are." [Actual status update.] Keep spreading the love.

The Paparazzo. Ever visit your Facebook page and discover that someone's posted a photo of you from last weekend's party -- a photo you didn't authorize and haven't even seen? You'd really rather not have to explain to your mom why you were leering like a drunken hyena and French-kissing a bottle of Jagermeister.

The Maddening Obscurist. "If not now then when?" "You'll see..." "Grist for the mill." "John is, small world." "Dave thought he was immune, but no. No, he is not." [Actual status updates, all.] Sorry, but you're not being mysterious -- just nonsensical.

The Chronic Inviter. "Support my cause. Sign my petition. Play Mafia Wars with me. Which 'Star Trek' character are you? Here are the 'Top 5 cars I have personally owned.' Here are '25 Things About Me.' Here's a drink. What drink are you? We're related! I took the 'What President Are You?' quiz and found out I'm Millard Fillmore! What president are you?" (SOURCE)

PROPHETESS CHRISTINA, YOU BETTER PREACH

Memo to the demons of racism/sexism and sickness: Attorneymom is coming out with her hands up in praise to Jehovah. You are my footstool to greater health, wealth and prosperity. No weapon formed against me or my family shall prosper. If God be for me, then who can be against me. It is finished. I have already won. You are about to find out that your arms are too short to box with God. Thank you, Jesus.

Sidebar: My mother is a very private person and therefore, don't like me posting anything about her, but I have to let you know this important fact. My mother was staying with me. She had come to visit for almost two weeks to attend my brother's wedding. My son and mother were hospitalized on the same day. While I was shopping for pj(s) and personal items for her, my husband called to tell me that he was bringing my son to the ER. I had my son and mother both in the ER at the same time. My son was subsequently transported to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite. All this is on top of my health challenges right now (Click here for my hospital post). I am being attack in every area of my life, but I have already claimed the victory. This too shall pass. (My mother, who is a 5-year Breast Cancer Survivor, came out of the hospital the day before my son)

My 8 month pregnant Cousin (Monica) flew into Atlanta from upstate New York to visit me for a weekend. Little did I know that I would need her as much as I did that weekend. I have "friends" and relatives that live less than 3 hours away (in fact, some "friends" live less than an hour away) - ask me if any of them came to see my mother or son. When I needed a sitter for my children, ask me if I got any help from certain relatives. In fact, some relatives (who are my favorites) wanted to pick a fight with me even though they know everything (somethings I am not at liberty to post about) that is going on with me.

I don't care what you all think about her, but Prophetess Christina's sermons are encouraging me through this storm as well as your comments and well wishes on Character Corner and facebook and your personal emails.

WHERE IS NANCY GRACE WHEN YOU NEED HER?



From Yahoo.com

ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. – They spent their nights jumping in and out of strange cars, trolling otherwise empty streets lined with decaying storefronts and boarded-up homes. Many sold sex to support drug habits or children left in the care of worried, hardworking grandmothers.

Even when they were picked up for drugs or prostitution, nights in jail looming, they called home to let their families know they were OK. Then, one by one, the calls stopped.

Since 2005, nine women who lived at the edges of the poor community in this small North Carolina city have disappeared. Six bodies were found along rural roads just a few miles outside town, most so decomposed that investigators could not tell how they died. At least one of the women was strangled, and all the deaths have been classified as homicides. Three women are still missing.

Police will not say whether they suspect a serial killer, but people in the community about 60 miles northeast of Raleigh do, and they're impatient with law enforcement efforts to investigate the slayings.

After the latest body — that of 31-year-old Jarneice Hargrove — was found in June behind a burnt-out house that was once a crack den, local law enforcement and state police formed a task force. In July, the FBI got involved. (Source)

HOW LONG WILL FOLKS BE SO STUPID?



The following verses of Holy Scriptures are rarely, if at all, taught or preached in the church building, but I want you to examine the scripture for yourself and let me know what you think. In Acts 4, it reads as follows:


31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man [Sidebar: no just to the pastors, teachers, prophets, apostles, preachers and evangelists) according as he had need.


36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,

37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
