Islamic Society celebrates 40th anniversary with open house event

The Islamic Society of Augusta is inviting the public to take part in the celebration of its 40th anniversary at a community event on Saturday.

The open house event will be held from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Islamic Community Center, 465 Old Evans Road in Martinez.

Dr. Nadeem Gill, the president of the Islamic Society of Augusta, said the event is part of the organization’s 40th anniversary celebration, but it is also an effort to reach out to the greater Augusta area, to foster a better relationship with the public and to help others understand the deep connections the Muslim community has in this area.

“A lot of people don’t know that the Muslim community has been here a long time,” said Gill, an oncologist with the Cancer Care Institute – Carolina in Aiken.

Gill said that like himself, many of those of the Muslim faith who have settled in this area, are college-educated professionals – physicians, medical researchers, engineers and business owners who take pride in contributing to the
community.

Gill, who came to the Augusta area in 1995 from Washington, D.C., chose Columbia County for the quality of life and the proximity to the Islamic center.

He and his wife raised four daughters, all graduates of Lakeside High School, who have gone to college and professional careers.

“All my daughters have southern accents,’ said Gill, who is originally from Pakistan.

What began as an effort by five Muslim families to lay down roots in Augusta 40 years ago, has grown to a community of at least 400 families who worship at the Islamic center mosque, Gill said.

Gill said he and other Muslims have found the Augusta area to be ideal for raising and family – neither too big, nor too small – and that the community is very accepting of other cultures and religions.

“It is really a unique place,” he said.

Saturday’s open house will feature tours of the Islamic center, educational displays and presentations on Islam and Islamic history, including the chance to see centuries old, hand-written copies of the Quran, the Islamic holy book.

Also, visitors will be able to sample tradition foods from countries and cultures from around the world. Gill said the Islamic center now has members representing at least 35 different nations.

Police Blotter, Feb. 10, 2016

The following accounts were taken from Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident reports:

Man confronts trespasser

A Grovetown man called authorities Friday after he confronted someone who tried to burglarize his home.

The 38-year-old man said someone knocked on his door just after midnight. When he opened the door, the man said a stranger was standing in his back yard. When he asked who he was, the trespasser said he was a game warden investigating a report of deer poaching.

When the man asked for some identification, the trespasser said he didn’t have it with him. A blue van arrived and the stranger got inside and left.

Looking around, the man found a trail camera missing, a window screen missing and a door of his home damaged. A deputy found the window screen on the ground and the damage to the door from what appeared to be someone trying to pry it open.

Woman’s ID used for job

An Appling woman told deputies Thursday that someone used her personal information for a state job.

The 56-year-old woman said she received a 1095-C tax form from the Georgia Department of Corrections verifying her employment and health insurance coverage for 2015. The woman said she has never worked for the state department. The form included her name, date of birth, address and Social Security number.

When speaking with seven department of corrections representatives, the woman said she received no assistance. She was told that she was employed by the department or they would not have sent it.

Ad paid for with stolen ID

A Martinez man told deputies Friday that someone used his name to pay for an online job ad with a fraudulent credit card.

The 40-year-old man said that he received three e-mails that contained receipts from a company called LinkedIn. The first two receipts were for $750 and the third for $1,250, totaling $2,750.

The man said he doesn’t have any credit cards, just bank debit cards. He contacted Visa and was told that he does have a credit card in his name. He told the representative that he didn’t open the account and was told he needed a police report to dispute the charges.

The investigation revealed that a Visa was opened in the man’s name and used. The charges were for some job postings in Tanzania through LinkedIn.

Woman spots an online scam

A Grovetown woman said Thursday that she recognized a suspicious online job ad before she was scammed out of money.

The woman said she responded by text message on Jan. 27 to an ad on craigslist.com for part-time employment as the caregiver for an elderly woman. The person she communicated with said that his elderly mother would be moving to West Augusta from Rome, Ga. and she could begin working on Feb. 3.

When she received a $1,950 check on Feb. 3, the woman was instructed to deposit the check, which she did. She was then told to send $1,500 by wire transfer to someone who she was told was the elderly woman’s new landlord.

The woman said she believed the activity was suspicious, so she cancelled the check through her bank and told authorities.

One student from each of the county’s public high schools, along with one student each from Augusta Christian Schools and Augusta Preparatory Day School, will be recognized as their school’s top scorer on the SAT. Each student has chosen a STAR teacher who has been instrumental in his or her educational journey.

Cliatt chose Brian Killips as her STAR teacher and is hopes to attend Georgia Tech, the University of Chicago or Vanderbilt University.

Park, an AP Scholar with Distinction, also holds a Georgia Certificate of Merit and was named a Governor’s Honors Program State Level Nominee last year. She plans to attend Georgia Tech and obtain a degree in biology. Park chose Anna Lewis as her STAR teacher.

Davenport, who chose Jonathan Waters as her STAR teacher, has participated in numerous debates, having been chosen as a national qualifier and named most valued debater in 2015 and debate rookie of the year for 2014.

Early voting begins Monday

In-person voting in Georgia begins Monday, at the Board of Elections office at 500 Faircloth Drive, in Evans. Voters will be able to cast ballots from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday until Feb. 26.

Columbia County Elections Director Nancy Gay urged voters to take advantage of the early voting period of the March 1 Presidential Preference Primary election. Gay said she expects voter turnout to be heavy on election day and some precincts could be very crowded.

The early voting schedule includes a Saturday voting day on Feb. 20 at three locations – the Board of Elections office, Stevens Creek Community Church and Patriots Park – where polls will be open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The Stevens Creek Community Church and Patriots Park voting locations also will be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays starting Feb. 22, she said.

Unlike in the most recent special election, on March 1 all 46 precincts will be open for voting, elections officials said.

Voters can view sample ballots, confirm their registration information or locate their voting precincts by going online to www.columbiacountyga.gov, or by calling the Board of Elections office at (706) 868-3355.
