by Clara McLaughlin, The Florida and cieorgta ,tar
Growing up, I often heard that 'greed and
common sense could never sit at the same
table.' Daddy would add, "Common sense
is not common. I don't know why they call
it that." I did not quite understand, even as
an honor student with a daddy who had
only finished third grade what he meant
even though he,worked hard, often day and
night so that we could get the tools and les-
sons we desired to help us achieve. My
parents stressed the power of knowledge,
respect, and common sense.
On January 20, 2009, the first African-American president took office. On the
day he was sworn in, the country was financially up side down in an unbeliev-

Breast Cancer Cell Compound
It was reported Thursday that U. S. researchers have dis-
covered a compound that can kill breast cancer stem cells,
a kind of master cancer cell that resists conventional treat-
ment and may explain why many cancers grow back. '
The report said that cancer stem cells are rare and diffi-
cult to study in the lab because they quickly change into
other types of cells and they are hard to kill.
To study the cells, Plyush Gupta of the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology said they devised a method for sta-
bilizing cancer stem cells in the lab. He further stated,

Golf May be Added to Olympics
The Executive Board of the International
Olympic Committee has shortlisted rugby and golf
for the 2016 Olympics. The recommendation still
needs to be approved by the full committee in,
October. Golf was last in the Olympics in 1904.
iOne concern has been if top players would com-
Spete since they already have other big touma-
ments. The number one in golf, Tiger Woods, said.
Softball, squash, baseball and karate all missed the cut.

E\WC's Alumni Use National Convention to Mobilize Membership ... E--
The Edward Waters College (EWC) Alumni Association recently hosted its nation- L .. .-....ii..
al convention at the college's campus. Several hundred alumni.and friends of the
College assembled for the four-day event. Alumni Participated in activities that includ-
ed an opening reception, white linen soiree, outdoor picnic and educational workshops.
For more than three decades, the biannual convention has reconnected EWC grad- I
uates and provided information on fundraising, organizational structure and student i
recruitment. Despite the alumni association's long history, its membership had dwindled
during the past decade to approximately one hundred people. I
"We estimate that four thousand EWC graduates live on the First Coast alone. While _ _
this convention was designed for fun and fellowship, it had a very serious underlying
purpose," said National Alumni Association President Mrs. Marguerite Baker 5 k-
Warren (EWC C/O '65). "We hoped to motivate alums to participate and make sure :
EWC continues to provide deserving students with a quality education."
The convention achieved its purpose as EWC alumni came from as far as New York
City and Washington, DC. Ken Francis, a member of the EWC C/O '69, said, "I loved
the atmosphere. The camaraderie has been great."
A highlight of the convention was a recognition luncheon honoring five former
EWC faculty and staff members. The honorees were: Mrs. Argenia Anderson, Former
Florida State Representative, The Honorable Mrs. Willye Dennis, Mrs. Dorothy
Gaither, Mrs. Geraldine Orr and Bishop Robert Webster. The luncheon also featured
candlelight and libations ceremonies and special posthumous tributes to two former
"There were advisors, teachers and mentors at EWC who took a real interest in us," i
stated Dr. Roy Singleton (EWC C/O '63), an adjunct professor at EWC and retired
University of North Florida department'chair. Singleton, who was the recognition lunch-
eon master of ceremonies, said, "They encouraged, challenged and saw the best in their
The conference closed with a $10,000 donation to the College and a formal banquet __
that honored members of the community and EWC graduates who have made signifi-
cant contributions to the College. The honorees were: Eric Johnson (EWC C/O '88),
who created the alumni's Internet-based networking site; keynote speaker Frederick
Harper (EWC C/O-'65); CSX Chairman and CEO Michael Ward, who donated one
million dollars to EWC; and Bishop McKinley Young, Chairman of EWC's Board of
"I received the best possible education at EWC. It's important that we maintain our
commitment to our alma mater because of what she has done for us, stated Frederick
Harper, a Howard University professor and award-winning author/editor. EWC gave me
the tools I needed to succeed."
Sam Hall-Worldwide Traveler
Worldwide traveler Samuel Hall shared with us photos and in a recent Florida
Times-Union article, Christina Swanson wrote, "Someone who's seen almost all of the
seven natural and medieval wonders of the world just might be a wonder themselves. V.S
Certainly, it is Southside neighbor Samuel Hall's curiosity that has sparked a life-long -
quest to experience the world's natural and man-made wonders firsthand."
Growing up in Selma, Ala., the youngest of six children with a mom who was an -
elementary school principal for 20 years, Hall's home life centered on dinner table cur-
rent-event discussions and a plethora of books to read. As a fourth-grader, his favorite
topic was geography, and his desire to visit other countries began while devouring
National Geographic magazines. "I was fascinated with the customs and mysteries of
the world, and made a vow that I would visit them all," said Hall.
And so he has. From the pyramids in Egypt to the Outback in Australia, Hall has
trekked to at least three different places each year for more than 20 years. He has trav-
eled to every continent except Antarctica, all with varying personal quests.
"Each place represents new discoveries within myself," he said. His pilgrimages
began with visits to the Old World Greece, Egypt, Italy to see how history has affect-
ed our culture. Hall's love of art prompted his next wave of travels to such famous muse-
ums as the Louve in Paris, the Dali in Holland and the Uffizi in Florence.
As a sculptor himself, he always returns home newly inspired. Even Hall was excit-
ed to see a Rodanesque quality to one of his sandstone pieces like "The Thinker" that
he titled "Suppose." Also a saxophone player with a penchant for concert halls, Hall has
sat in the Sidney Opera House and Australia's Wollongong Conservatorium, to name a
Next, spiritual growth became the attraction, with visits to remote Machu Picchu,
Peru, and Stonehenge, in England. Today, his quest is to visit developing countries and P.
give back to others less fortunate.
Hall's lifelong traveling bug is captured by his favorite words, by Jan Myrdal: '. H I
"There is a third dimension to traveling: the longing for what is beyond." "

FACTS about the stability and security you get from health insurance reform
as explained by the administration.
Reform will stop "rationing", not increase it. It is a myth that reform means
a government takeover of health care or lead to rationing. Reform will forbid many
forms of rationing that are currently being used by insurance.
The "euthanasia" distortion is a malicious myth referring to counseling.
Veterans health care is safe and sound.
Reform will benefit small business not burden it.
Your Medicare is safe, and stronger with reform
You can keep your own insurance.
The NAACP supports health care reform that includes an expansion of coverage to
all Americans and eliminates racial health care disparities.
They therefore urge congress to bring up comprehensive health care reform right
after Labor Day.
The NAACP is available to help you understand the benefits of health care reform.
They are requesting that you contact your senators and congressmen.

Back to School Cuisine: Pack Grade "A" Lunches this School Year
It is hard to believe it is back to school time again. With school back in session, it's time to stock the pantry with time saving and nutritious foods to make
food prep easy. This means that our grocery list should include planning for breakfast, lunch boxes, after school snacks and quick to prepare dinners.

Place a frozen juice box in your kids' lunchbox. It'll keep the food chilled and will be thawed by lunchtime.
Go for variety. Make sandwiches using whole grain tortillas, bagels or pitas.
Pack antibacterial wet wipes so your kids can clean their hands before and after eating.
Add grated veggies to .sandwiches and wraps for crunch your kids won't notice they're eating something that's good for them!
Use small resealable bags to pack dressings. Kids cali open one comer and simply squeeze onto salad, then discard.
Get dipping! Pack salsa, hummus, yogurt or salad dressing for your little ones to dunk their sandwich, veggies or fruit into.
Make bite-sized and mini versions of regular foods like sandwiches. They work well for small appetites and are more likely to be eaten.

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column Known jor tus
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!
After a few years of dating I decided to leave a relationship and
go back to-an old one. This was a mistake. The woman I went to
lied to me, has a crazy ex-husband and was pregnant when we
got together. I left this relationship immediately and tried to go
back to first woman. She has forgiven me but said she will only
take me back after I have a DNA test. In the meanwhile, she said if she finds someone
else, then it's over. Am I wrong for still wanting her?
Hopeless On-Line Reader
You're a selfish man living in your own fantasy world. You broke up with this woman
for a reason and got more of the drama that caused you to leave in the first place. You're
lucky the first woman didn't skin you like a cat. The universe has a way of righting itself
so you shouldn't be surprised if she decided to take the risk and move on without you.
Regardless of the outcome of the DNA test, you should prepare yourself to be alone or
look for another love.
I broke up with my boyfriend over something silly and now I regret my actions. I
thought he was cheating on me with my best friend but they were actually buying me a
gift. I said some horrible things to both of them and they're not speaking to me. I want
to get back with him but I think he is looking at my friend because she seems more
mature than me. What should I do if they start dating? I know it's my fault but it's going
to tear me apart.
Made ,a Mistake Atlanta, GA
You obviously have trust issues if you can't feel 'secure with your mate or your friends.
Your foolish tongue has caused you to lose your relationship and your friend. The only
thing you can do is apologize to both parties and ask your boyfriend for another chance.
If he says no and goes with your buddy, then you learned a valuable lesson and if they'll
do this in your face, you didn't need them anyway.
I think I'm in a relationship that is one-sided. In the beginning my boyfriend and I
shared a lot, communication was good and we talked about our goals. Now we don't do
anything recreational unless I make a suggestion and pay for everything. I keep trying
to love him, support him and find out what's going on. He won't respond but he won't
be rude nor leave the house. I'm very confused and these mixed signals make it worse.
How do I get through to him?
Going Crazy Toledo, OH
Dear Going Crazy:
Your boyfriend has simply fallen out of love with you. He thinks he's being nice and
respectful but he's really being dishonest with you. He has some pent up feelings and
thoughts that will only come out if you ask direct questions.You should ask him to share
his feelings about the relationship, find out where you stand and if he wants to be with
you. Don't make assumptions but rely on his direct response and actions and be willing
to take the good with the bad.

GEN E R A L INFORMATION
DEFINITION: A skin cancer tha sprered tos dhei are
of the bod:, prinlm.arilk the 1 mph i ode-. hlici. lung:. and cen-
tril nervous system. Most melanomas begin in a mole oi other
pre-existing skin lesion.
BODY PARTS INVOLVED: Usually in skin of the head, neck, legs, or back. It
appears rarely in the eye, mouth, vagina, or anus.
SEX OR AGE MOST AFFECTED: Adults.
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS: A, flat or slightly raised skin lesion that can be black,
brown, blue, red, white, or a mixture of all colors. Its borders are often irregular and
CAUSES: Uncontrolled growth of cells that gire skin its brownish color
(melanocytes). When the cells grow down into deep skin layers, they invade blood ves-
sels and lymph vessels and are spread to other body parts.
RISK INCREASES WITH: *Moles on the skin. *Occupations or activities
involving excessive sun exposure, such as farming, construction work, athletics, or sun-
I bathing: *Pregnancy. *Genetic factors. This is most common in light-complexioned,
blonde people. It is rare in black people. *Radiation treatment or excessive exposure
to ultraviolet light, as with sun lamps. *Family history of melanoma. *Living in "sun-
belt" areas of the U.S.
HOW TO PREVENT: *Protect yourself from excessive sun exposure. Wear
broad-rimmed hats protective clothing. Use maximum protection sun-block prepara-
tions on exposed skin. This is especially important in the adolescent years. *Examine
your skin, including soles of the feet, regularly for changes in pigmented areas. Ask a
family member to examine your back. See y our doctor about any skin area (especial-
ly brown or black) that becomes multicolored; develops irregular edges or surfaces,
bleeds or changes in any way. See Skin Examination in Appendix. *Community pro-
vided, skin cancer screening clinics available in some areas.
WHAT TO EXPECT: APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE:
*Doctor's treatment. *Surgery to remove suspicious skin lesions or to remove near-
by lymph glands, if the tumor has spread. Skin graft may be necessary to avoid an
I unsightly scar. (See Melanoma Removal in Surgery section.) *Radiation treatment, if
J the tumor has spread.
*Your own observation of suspicious growths. *Medical history and physical exam
N by a doctor. *Biopsy (see Glossary) of suspicious lesions. The melanoma's depth must
be established to determine appropriate treatment.
| POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS: Fatal spread to lungs, liver, brain, or other
PROBABLE OUTCOME:Varies greatly. Early melanomas that have not grown
downward are curable with surgical removal. Once the tumor has spread to distant
organs, this condition is currently considered incurable and fatal in a short time.
However, symptoms can be relieved or controlled. Scientific. research into causes and
treatment continues, so there is hope for increasingly effective treatment and cure.
HOW TO TREAT: GENERAL MEASURES: *Once diagnosis is made, get fre-
quent body examinations to check for other lesions. *The more you can learn and
understand about a disease, the more you will be able to make informed decisions about
where to go for your care, the treatments available, the risks involved, side effects of
therapy and expected outcome. *See Resources for Additional Information.
MEDICATION: Your doctor may prescribe anticancer (chemotherapy) drugs.
ACTIVITY: No restrictions expect those involving sun exposure.
DIET: No special diet.
CALL YOUR DOCTOR: *You have symptoms of melanoma. *During treat-
ment, changes occur in another skin area. *New, unexplained symptoms develop.
SDutes used in neatmnent mra, produce side effects
Dr. \\atkins can be heard liie Sundays at 7:05 pm EST on iun.KCOHl-Radio.com. He is

Gullah Geechee Tour of Brunsjw ick, Jekyll. and St. Simon's Islands.
An ancestral tribute will be held at the site of the Wanderer Memorial. The
Wanderer was the last enslavement vessel documented as coming into the Georgia
area of what is no%\ the Gullah Geechee Nation. Gullah.Geechee culture came about
due to the hardships of the greatest crime against humanita-chattel enslavement. Yet.
from hardship came a rich African traditional culture that continues to exist in spite ot
the odds against it The true existence of the culture \ill be represented through the
various artistic, musical. and historic presentations that \\ill take place at Howard

continued to ride his bike approximate-

observed him. After several verbal com-

plied, and the officer made contact with
him. Police asked the suspect if he had
any weapons or drugs on him and he
stated "no." Police then asked the sus-

Sports Editor any game planning.
"We'll play them later in the year, so obviously we'll
take a good hard look at what we are able to accomplish
just running our system. I would anticipate they would
approach it similarly," Del Rio said.
Monday night will be a chance for young players like
Jarrett Dillard and Tiquan Underwood to show consistent
play according to Del Rio.
"It's all about our football team. It's about us going out
and putting the best product we can, to be able to win
games. So right now we have the young guys who are
very much in the mix that haven't proven anything and
they will get their first chance Monday night. How you
practice says one thing about you. How you show up in a
game says another," Del Rio explained.
He added that will be very important for a younger
player to take advantage of the opportunity.
Del Rio said that he thought the Dolphins won the bat-
tle in the trenches last year, and that's something he will
monitor closely Monday night.
In Miami rookie cornerback Vontae Davis got to work
with the first team defense for the first time as veteran
Will Allen was given a chance to rest his sore groin.
Coach Tony Sparano cited the fact that Allen doesn't play
on special teams and this was primarily a special teams
practice as a reason for giving Allen a breather.
Two players Sparano has made a point of singling out
are running back. Patrick Cobbs and nose tackle Paul
"It's going to be really hard for me to give that guy up,"
he said of Cobbs. "I really like Pat Cobbs as a player. I like
what he brings to the table for our football team and I
think people coming in here having to compete with
Cobbs, they have an all-day sucker when they do that."
As for Soliai, Sparano likes the fact that he came into

Raji is the only holdout of the five players represented

Jaguars Help Kids Get Ready For School
By FRED WITT
The Florida Star
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-
Drew and his foundation held a special back-to-school
event for more than 200 area children at the practice
fields near Jacksonville Municipal Stadium..
The children were invited from the Police Athletic Jones-Drew_Maurice LewisMarcedes
League, Sulzbacher Center, Jacksonville Children's
Commission and St. Augustine Homeless Coalition.
Jones-Drew along with his mother, Andrea, and several members of his family distributed the back-
Each child received a Reebok backpack filled with notebooks, pens, pencils and other items supplied
by Winn-Dixie. Allied Veterans is donating 400 tickets (two to each child) to the Jaguars regular season
home opener against Arizona on Sunday, Sept. 20.
"I can't thank the sponsors enough for helping out the foundation with this event," Jones-Drew said.
"It goes to show what we can do when everybody comes together for a good cause. School is starting back
up and these kids are in need of school supplies. It's also a great opportunity for the kids to get to attend
an NFL game."
Jones-Drew has been actively involved in the community since joining the Jaguars in 2006.
He established the Maurice Jones-Drew Foundation earlier this year to help youth-focused organiza-
tions. He has hosted a football camp for youth the last three years in Jacksonville and has also held camps
in his hometown of Antioch, Calif.
Jones-Drew donated 100 sets of Reebok shoes, gloves and compression shirts to members of the
Andrew Jackson High School varsity football team.
Each player also received a special shirt that will be worn to school on game days. In addition, each
member of the coaching staff received a Reebok jacket.
Pashos treats children to school supplies
Pashos distributed 50 backpacks full of school supplies to children from the 4th Judicial Court
Guardian Ad Litem Program.
Each backpack contains a $50 gift card to a local clothing store, pencils, pens, binder and notebooks
among other items.
Pashos founded the Pashos' Pals program in November of 2007 with children from Guardian Ad
Litem in Jacksonville, an organization that speaks for the best interests of abused, abandoned and neglect-
ed children in the court. The organization promotes and supports quality volunteer representation for chil-
dren to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.
"This is just another aspect of what we are doing with the Pashos Pals program," Pashos said. "I iave
really enjoyed getting to meet these children over the past two years and showing them opportunities that
exist for them when they get older. It's been very rewarding for me personally to see them grow as peo-
ple. It's about spending time with each child one-on-one, showing them you care and we have been able
to accomplish that with this program."
Lewis honored as Morgan Stanley Community Leader
Tight end Marcedes Lewis has been named the Jacksonville Jaguars/Morgan Stanley Smith-Barney
Community Leader of the Year for 2008.
As a result, the Jacksonville Humane Society received a $6,000 check on Lewis' behalf from team
sponsor Morgan Stanley.
Lewis was one of four players receiving consideration for their commitment to community involve-
The other players were offensive tackle Tony Pashos, defensive end Quentin Groves and a group of
the Jaguars' linebackers (Daryl Smith, Clint Ingram, Justin Durant, Tim Shaw, Brian Iwuh). The four play-
ers were named monthly winners last season, previously directing $1,000 donations to local non-profits.
Lewis established a relationship with the Humane Society by making frequent visits. Lewis spoke to
a group of children participating in Camp Kindness, a camp aimed to teach children the importance of
respecting animals and also the proper way to care of their pets. He plans to make visits throughout the
2009 season to continue his support.

Former Broadway Performer Gives New Meaning to "Hip Hop"
Jacksonville Youth Explore School and Career Goals
S,' "'- for the upcoming school year and
S beyond the classroom.
400-%..Throughout 12 two-hour ses-
4.,sions, participants focus on five
units that revolve around of self
awareness, goal setting, character
development, integrity, and persist-
i A ,\ --ence.
"The real mission of the pro-
gram is to stress the importance of
having a positive attitude about
yourself, then you can be able to
extend that kindness to those around
you. The spirit becomes contagious," says Burrough,
Director. "Our goal is to create an atmosphere of self-
lessness and have that act trickle down from the teach-
ers to the students, then have the students take the atti-
tude back to their communities."
Although the program is held in a theatre set-
ting, participants range from future singers and actors,
to journalists and police officers.
"Honestly, when I first heard the name, I fig-
ured it was some kind of hip hop dance class, but sur-
prisingly, it was nothing of the sort," says Hip Hopper
Nuri H. Sami, 16, who has a passion for music.*

And to make the 10 year plan more tangible,
Auntie Roz pairs each participant with a "hip consult-
ant" or a professional who is in the area in which the
Hip Hopper aspires.
by Jamilla L. Howard
What do you think of when you hear "hip
hop?" Do rappers with huge chains, quick lyrics,
intense beats, expressive dances, and maybe even
saggy pants invade your thoughts? We know that hip
hop music listeners are the most sought out demo-
graphic today. Armed with that information and her
passion for music,. former Broadway performer
Roslyn Burrough, affectionately known as "Auntie
Roz," brought together over a dozen Jacksonville stu-
dents from different walks of life to infuse a different
connotation to the musical technique. Collectively,
they make up the H.I.P H.O.P. Shop or Hip Inner
People Help Other People.
As America continues to live in this "Age of
Obama," Burrough is taking advantage of the "yes we
can" attitude and uses the Hip Hop Shop to position
middle and high school students on a path of self-dis-
covery. The summer program allows them to set goals
"...the Auntie Roz 'Up Close and Personal
Show' was a major contribution for me because I had
the opportunity to meet two men in my field of inter-
est. ,They both were [from. the] Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office, and I learned a lot from them," says Hip
Hopper Brain Perry, 15. "They supplied the informa-
tion that I had always wanted to ask police offi-
cer... and I would love to thank Officers Knudsen,
McCall and Auntie Roz for their help."
The sessions are held at the Museum of
Contemporary Art (MOCA) in downtown
Jacksonville. In a theatre setting, Auntie Roz uses per-
formance art techniques to help Hip Hoppers develop
self esteem and enhance the sense of responsibility,
demonstrate the need for perseverance and the bene-
fits of good character.
"One of my favorite lessons was the one when
Mr. Rod Brown from the Florida State Health
Department came and talked to us. I really liked the
lesson because the grades ahead of me are going to be
really tough with all the kids pressuring me to have
sex," says Hip Hopper Nakia Jefferson, 11, who wish-
es to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine.
Auntie Roz is no stranger to the stage. She has appeared
in 17 Broadway musicals, receiving special recognition for her
performances in The Wiz, Showboat, The Sound of Music, and
Porgy and Bess. She has also performed concerts around the
world and recorded jazz, and spiritual albums. Off the stage,
Roslyn Burrough received her Bachelor of Science Degree in
Elementary Education at Morris Brown College in Atlanta,
Georgia. Burrough is also an author and featured singer with
Silver Burdett Ginn music textbook series.

culmination of 10-weeks of immersion in fine-art education. This experience is
possible through the support of community partners like Comcast Cable.
This year the Comcast Cable Community Investment Grant program
awarded the City Kids Art Factory (CKAF) $3,000 to support the Durkeeville-
based non-profit. "Businesses helping programs like ours is a wonderful thing,"
says budding artist Jerome. "This helps kids like us learn to open our imaginations
so we can express ourselves to other people."
Jerome, now in high school, says he is confident that the six years he's
spent in the CKAF program developing his contemporary style will give him a
valuable leg uip when he applies to colleges. That's because CKAF is more than an
arts and crafts program. Created in 1997, CKAF is dedicated to providing excep-
tional art education and fostering experiences that support the artistic development
of youth ages 8-17 years. The goal is to encourage interest in the arts while provid-
ing professional visual arts instruction in a location central to the community.
"Arts in the Summer" provides 10 weeks "of fine art instruction including
drawing, painting, sculpture, art history, museum and gallery tours and even lec-
tures by professionals in the industry. Using the arts to broaden their horizons par-
ticipants like Jerome also develop practical skills such as discipline, goal setting
and creative problem solving.
Students have spent this summer developing individual portfolios including
works like the acrylic on canvas created by Jerome. The "Arts in the Summer" pro-
gram culminates in a gallery show of student works during which Comcast Cable
will receive formal recognition for the company's contributions to City Kids Art
The CKAF "Arts in the Summer" exhibition is scheduled for August 15,
2009. The exhibition is free and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00
City Kids Art Factory also receives funding .from the Cultural Council of
Greater Jacksonville, the City of Jacksonville, EMMW Legacy Fund, the
Community Foundation, the Winn Dixie Foundation and the Rotary Club of South

-. -.--, -16 Year Old Golfer- .---
By: Jamarcus Jackson teen reporter
0 S for the Florida and Georgia star
,. To become great in a sport you
S ih, have to practice, work hard and
practice some more, which is what
16 year old golfer Kelly Allen does.
Born in Erlanger, Kentucky, Kelly has
been playing golf for seven years.
) He practices at First Tee of
Jacksonville and is currently a junior
at Robert E. Lee high school.
Growing up Kelly loved to watch his
father and grandfather play, when he
was three Kelly got his own plastic
S_ clubs and has been swinging ever
,.- since. Kelly Allen is the captain and
S- leader of his high school golf team
and a two-year letterman junior
golfer with a 4.4 handicap. While being very active in improving his golf
swing, Kelly maintains a 3.6 GPA making him a great role model for other
young players. With goals of becoming a professional golfer in the future,
Kelly intends to study engineering. He continues to advance his gametby
staying fit and healthy with the help of his personal trainer Melinda Henry
from ABz-Solute Fitness, also located in Jacksonville, FL.
Kelly's skill has him playing in many places including the Wal-Mart
first tee open selection process in Pebble Beach, Arkansas. It is a multi-
cultural event where teens 18 and under play and have a good time. Kelly
loves to play golf and hopes to pursue it as a career and play in the PGA
tour. His favorite golfer is Tiger Woods. When I spoke to Terry Allen,.
Kelly's dad, he stated "Kelly loves the game and has a true passion for
playing. Kelly has been playing for some time and I'm glad to be there
and cheer him on". This reporter is a schoolmate, with Kelly, and believes
he is a talented young man and has a great future ahead of him. In addi-
tion I talked to Ms. Pepper Peete, executive director for first tee of
Jacksonville, who explained how, "he is a great player and has great work
ethics, Kelly is a great representive for first tee of Jacksonville and has
been with the program since 7 years of age".
