    STAR 94.5 Visits The Jones High School Marching Tigers!

    Earlier this week, JoJo had the opportunity to visit the Marching Tigers of Jones High School during their band camp! We had a great time after dropping off water, snacks, and sweat towels to help the kids this week. Jojo even showed the band some of her majorette moves! LOL!


    The students were so nice, and inviting! It was a plus to see them using their summer to do something positive as well! Any Jones High Alumni out there?! Represent!

    Police: Duo carjacks woman, 93, drags her 20 feet outside DeLand church

    DeLAND, Fla. – Two men carjacked a 93-year-old woman and dragged her 20 feet Thursday morning while she was on her way to church, the DeLand Police Department said.

    The duo shoved the woman to the ground and took her keys at about 8:15 a.m. outside Saint Peter Catholic Church at West New York Avenue and North Delaware Avenue, city spokesman Chris Graham said.

    Investigators said the carjackers drove the Chrysler erratically as officers followed them. They said the men drove through yards before crashing the car in a wooded area at West Winnemissett Avenue and South High Street.

    David Leo Perkins III, 21, of Daytona Beach, and Darius Matthews, 20, were arrested not long after ditching the wrecked vehicle, Graham said.

    Investigators said the victim, Maraquita Steinmetz, of DeLand, was on her way to daily Mass when she was attacked. She said she pulled into the parking lot, and one of the suspects was on a bicycle. He approached her, grabbed the keys and pushed her aside, police said. Steinmetz held onto the steering wheel as the man began to drive away. Steinmetz couldn’t hold onto the steering wheel any longer and fell to the ground, police said.

    Police said Steinmetz had some cuts and bruises, but she wasn’t seriously injured.

    Matthews told investigators he didn’t know about the carjacking or that he didn’t know Perkins. He later admitted to investigators that Perkins was his cousin. Matthews said he and Perkins were near the church when he said it would be easier if they had a vehicle, police said. Matthews said Peters left for a second and came back with the vehicle, investigators said.

    Price told investigators he was punched in the face by Matthews and forced to drive the vehicle. He later admitted that was a lie but said Matthews pulled up to him on the side of the road and told him to drive the vehicle, investigators said. Perkins then requested a lawyer.

    Kevin Hart Laughs at ‘BS’ Allegations He Cheated on Pregnant Wife Eniko Parrish




    When it comes to rumors, comedian Kevin Hart has one response: laughter.

    The 32-year-old  Ride Along star posted a photo of himself in mid-cackle to Instagram on Wednesday, appearing to respond to claims that he had been caught cheating on his pregnant wife after photos of him in a car with a woman after a nightclub appearance in Miami Beach surfaced online.


    “At the end of the day, you just gotta laugh at the BS,” Hart wrote, seemingly dismissing the claims — which had caused his name to trend on Twitter throughout the day. “#LiveLoveLaugh ….. [Shaking my damn head].”

    Hart and wife — Eniko Parrish, 32 — married last August in a lavish California ceremony after a two-year engagement and many years together. “I already feel married, the wedding is really just for her.”

    She shared on Wednesday that she had reached the six-month mark of her pregnancy, and was feeling “GREAT.”

    Hart previously told  Entertainment Weekly he always puts his family first and never wants to let fame get in the way.

    “Regardless of my level of success, I don’t ever want to lose the family feeling of a home,” he said. “I don’t want to be in a mansion where I have to find my kids on the east wing,” he continued. “I want to sit on the couch and be able to yell into the kitchen, ‘Hey come on, let’s go outside and ride a bike!’ I like two dogs, I like a fence. I don’t need no dolphins. I don’t need a shark in my shark tank.”

    Alright Kevin, do the right thing……
