Still the people's
choice, striving to
make a difference.


By CJ McLaughlin
Shimeek Daquiel Gridine is
grandparents to give himself up
injury and was released from tht
Shimeek, who was 14 at the tir_


Get 70 Years Sentence


of age, On Friday, May 15, 2009, he walked into the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office with his
ting Dana Battles behind a restaurant on Main Street. Battles received a non-life threatening
1 on the same day.
- 12-year-old friend said they had found a small shot gun. They saw Mr. Battles, according to


Battles' brother, taking out the garbage at the restaurant owned by him and said, "Give it up." Both boys are of small statue. Mr.
!Battles is not. So, according to Battles, Shimeek, standing between 6 and 10 feet away from the victim, shot him and quickly ran away.
However, we were told last year that the boys attempted to struggle with Battles and the gun went off. When Shimeed turned himself
.: - in, he was charged with first degree attempted murder, armed robbery and aggravated battery. Because of the State Attorney's new
:H policy, based on intent, at his first hearing before Juvenile Judge Linda McCallum, he was ordered held without bond until his arraign-
ment. At the arraignment, he was charged as an adult, again, because of his intent. The 12-year-old was charged as a juvenile.
Shimeek's family said he was basically a good boy, who had suffered much during the past year and had lost two family members
about two weeks before his situation with Battles, in addition to his mother losing her job and the move to Jacksonville with his grand-
Shimeek Daquiel Gridine, 15 parents. According to the family, he had only had one previous incident with the law which was a petty theft charge. His family said
he had 'good' grades in school and they were willing to work with him to get him through his trying times. From May 28, 2009 to the hearing on April 30, 2010, Shimeek's
family have given their all in trying to get him charged as a juvenile rather than as an adult, providing him the opportunity to get counseling, continue his education and
receive job training after serving a reasonable amount of time for his mistake. In fact, his attorney said that even other officers of the system felt that he would get a much
lesser sentence with a maximum of 25 years since he pleaded guilty to armed robbery. It was clear that he regretted his mistake, Jacksonville Continued on A-7

Too Much or Too Little Sleep
Could Cause Early Death
New studies done in Italy, shows that people who get
less than six hours of sleep per night have an increased
risk of dying early. The study showed a 12 percent
increase for early deaths for those who sleep the regu-
lar hours a day. The study shows that those with little
sleep develop diabetes, obesity, hypertension and high
cholesterol. The researchers felt that there is a relation-
ship between less sleep and illness due to hormonal and
metabolical mechanisms.
The study also found a link between those who sleep
more than nine hours per night and premature death.
However, the researchers felt that oversleeping is more
likely to be because of illness.
The researchers said that doctors never ask a patient
how much sleep do they get, however.
There'was no adverse effects for those sleeping
between six and eight hours per day.
Brunswick Has Them,

Sheriff Rutherford, while a

Legislatures. The bill will
allow cities and counties in
Florida to install red-light
cameras at intersections.
He said that the plan is to
S install such equipment at
the ten most busy and

intersections in the city.
The surrounding areas, such as Orange Park and Green
Cove Springs also plan to install the system. The City
Council approved their use in 2007.

They Use Money, You

Must Use Your Vote
Every week we plan to remind our readers of
the importance of getting counted in the census,
registering to vote and actually voting. Since the
president has been in the White House, we have
seen how the opponents have made it very stressful.
They have deep pockets and the Supreme Court has
made their pockets even deeper when it comes to
helping politicians. But you have something big-
ger than their deep pockets. You have the ability
to vote. Make use of that ability or we will lose all
that we have gained.

The Blessings of the Lord Is Always Upon Mothers

by Cheryl Williams and William Jackson

The passing of Mothers Day does not stop the recognition and praise
we give to our mothers. It is an honor bestowed upon those who give
S4r life, who provides nurturing, who cares for and teaches. Mothers are
r. J our first teachers, without their instruction and guidance there is a lack
of morals and values that ultimately dictates our cultural and societal
*. conduct and expression of family and unity.
Man cannot conceive, carry, nor bare a child; he can only provide the
seed. This mere fact alone should cause women to pause and ponder
these words; good seed produces good fruit. A good nurturer will help
in allowing seed to grow into good fruit, a mother
and father are judged by the fruit they bare.
A mother is so powerful in her anointing that she only has to provide
one egg that is fertilized and grows inside her womb. She has the power
of life in this physical realm and is recognized and revered in spiritual
realms, blessed be the mothers that have provided life on this earth.
Who sacrifice their bodies, their very essence to bring life a new into this world.
The trials and tribulations of motherhood are so complex that books, DVD's, movies cannot fully grasp the com-
plexity of conception, pregnancy and birth. The glory of the Lord can be seen through each birth and each birth is
miraculous. Birth is part of a miraculous spiritual process that allows the soul to come into biological embodiment.
Muslims, Christians, Jews and those of other faiths all regardless of their religious ideologies celebrate the birth
of their children, this process binds a human race equally and provides a commonality of cultural connectivity.
Our journey does not stop at birth, but only begins, because a woman bares the burden of raising a life, sometimes
unwillingly, sometimes without the help of a husband or companion, but has a biblical responsibility to raise her
children. It can be seen in The Holy Qur'an of our Muslim brothers and sisters, The Holy Bible of Judaism and
Christianity, the Hebrew Bible (Torah) the importance of mothers and their teachings and guidance. No one knows
the potential of children only God as the child grows and develops. A mother maybe raising a Moses who will lead
his people from slavery; she might be preparing a El-Hajj Malik Shabazz, Colin Luther Powell, Barack Hussein
Obama, Jr., a Robert Francis Kennedy or even a Abraham Lincoln. A mother may be raising an Isaiah a great
prophet. Mother's maybe giving birth to champions in athletics, or training a scholar, encouraging a scientist, and
inspiring another Steven P. Jobs or William Henry Gates III in technology and computers. A mother maybe prepar-
ing a future Queen, a Zora Hurston, Nefertiti, Shirley Chisolm or even a Barbara Walters or Hillary Clinton.
There are millions if not billions of mothers of all cultures from the past to the present and those mothers that are
reading/hearing this that may have in their wombs or in their borne children generations of peace makers (Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi), teachers, doctors, psychologists, and men and women of
God; preachers, priests, bishops, apostles, prophets and popes. Mothers see the potential that God has placed in
their children even when society has cursed, denied and written these children off, a mothers love will carry their
children through. A mothers love is a true force of nature, it has been said that a mothers love is respected and hon-
ored by God, it is a force that can move mountains, calm turbulent seas, clear-up a child's tearful eyes and heal a
hurt spirit with anointing prayers, healing hands, kisses that angels would be jealous of and hugs that would soothe
emotions ravaged by pain, sorrow and degradation caused by this world. This Mothers Day all mothers even those
that take in children that are not even their own, but raise them as their flesh and blood
should be honored, respected and praised. This Sunday pastors, bishops, apostles,
priests, prophets, and those that serve in their respected capacities should preach ser-
mons to the glory of mothers. Recognition should be bestowed upon mothers that have
lost children because during their short time among us they were a blessing in the time
that they were here in this world and as they passed a part of their mothers passed
away with them.
As has been sang so passionately, Every Day Is Mothers Day by Shirley Caesar a
mother is the truest and most trusted friend we have, when our trials get heavy and
suddenly fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who
rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us in our rainy days; when trouble comes around
us and our friend and family flee from us, still will our mothers cling to us. There is
simply no way we can ever really thank mothers for all they have done for us. She is
our focal point of our lives, the greatest human being in .the world or should we say
the closes to divinity on earth, because mothers have the blessings of the Lord on
them. No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you, the gift of Life.
All that we are or hope to be in life we owe to our angle mothers.

"There's Always Something Happening On -
Mr. Kernaa D. McFarlin
Honored at Stanton's 4th Annual Gala

It is always an exciting time to see old friends and
classmates at the Annual Stanton Gala and I am always .
disappointed when I am unable to make it. This year we
were attending our youngest granddaughter's First ;. -. ,
Communion in Milton, Massachusetts. However, good \
friends and colleagues have provided me with marvelous '" .
highlights from the 2010 Gala. And to each of them I am
truly grateful.
The Class of 1960 was the honored 50 Year Reunion Mr. Kernaa D McFarlin
Class and the New Stanton Marching and Concert Bands
of the late Mr. Kernaa D. McFarlin. "While there is
much rivalry today over college bands, "back in the
day", there was no question about the Blue Devils'
Marching or Concert Band. The band was a crowd pleas- 19
er and a show stopper. Precision and quality were our aw
trademarks. Eight for five was no jive, St. Louis Blues
and a dance step too. The "100" was to Stanton what the
"100" was and is to FAMU," states the Gala planners. -
Former band member, drum-major, majorette or lover o
excellent musical performances came from far and near
for the 2010 Gala.
Mr. McFarlin's family was so appreciative for the
recognition given to their beloved father and grandfa-
ther. "My Dad was terrific! He was our father and the
father to all of the members of his band. He loved them
all," stated Mrs. Adrienne McFarlin King, daughter of
Mr. McFarlin.
Gala planners included: Chairman Kenneth W.
Reddick '63; Vice-Chairman Mrs. Helen Davis Bailey
'64; Recording Secretary Mrs. Sandra Thompson '60;
Corresponding Secretary Mrs. Shirley Tucker Ealy '62;
Financial Secretary Mrs. Norma Lang Brown '54;
Treasurer Mrs. Julie Newman Boulware '67; Business
Manager James Tippins '53; Chaplain Rev. Bernard ,
Wright '64; Sergeant at Arms Henry Newman '53; and
Parliamentarian Claude Hunter '53.
This year was the 142nd year of 'Stanton'. May that
old Stanton Spirit forever live!

Ball Kids and Volunteers
are Stars at MPS Tennis Tournament
You may not have seen diversity among the players
at the recent MPS Tennis Championship Tournament in
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL recently. However, among the
Ball Kids and volunteers along with the tournament
attendees there was great diversity. And everyone was
having a marvelous time. When I spoke to the Ball Kids
Coordinator he wanted our community to know that they
are very eager to have more participation from the
minority community. For more information visit
www.mpsgroupchamps.net.
The tournament returns to Ponte Vedra BeAch again
in 2011. It's not too early to plan for your respective ten-.
nis star to be on the court with this spirited group of -
young people.

SAM BAYER

HAUNTINGLY BRINGS FREDDIE KRUGER BACK!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/ FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTO COURTESY OF WARNER BROS. PICTURES


Some movie going fans criticize studios when they regenerate a fran-
chise for a second run especially when it had a full ride the first time around.
Freddy Krueger became a household name in 1984 beginning with the first
"Nightmare On Elm Street" horror movie. Since then the franchise has
spawned seven sequels and a 1988 TV series. Now fast forward to 2010
and yet another "Nightmare On Elm
Street" flick? Even though the origi-
nal characters and script was writ-
ten and directed by Wes Craven,
this latest installment was written by
Wesley Strick and Eric Hessler and
directed by Sam Bayer based on
Carven's original characters and
concept.
Director Sam Bayer was gra-
cious enough to call this columnist
to give his insights on this project
while in route to LAX (LA
International Airport). Even though
this film marks Bayer's debut as a
feature film director, he is hardly a
stranger directing behind a camera.
The graduate of New York City's
School of Visual Arts started out as a painter but switched over to film.and
video because it provided a vehicle to deliver his work to a larger audience.
He taught himself cinematography and lighting and still shoots and lights his
videos and commercials to date. Bayer broke into the video production
game big time when he shot Nirvana's video "Smells Like Teen Spirit," which
is consistently rated as one of the most influential music videos of all time.
The success of the Nirvana project immediately produced a rush of super-
star music talent scurrying for their spot in a long lunch line for Bayer to
shoot their videos. This included The Rolling Stones, Sheryl Crow, John Lee


Hooker, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, David Bowie,
Aerosmith, Lenny Kravitz, Green Day and Justin Timberlake to name a few.
Bayer has racked up some pretty impressive awards along the way as well
including the Kodak Lifetime Achievement Award, The producer's
Association Lifetime Achievement Award and multiple MTV Moon Men
Awards for his music videos.
So how did Bayer get his
shot at directing his first fea-
ture, especially one being a
proven franchise? Bayer
calmly says, "I go back quite
a ways with the producers of
the film. Platinum Dunes
Productions who has done a
slew of horror movies
(Friday The 13th, The Texas
Chainsaw Massacre, The
Amityville Horror), and I go
back with these guys years
and years. This movie came
around and there was a bit
of hesitation because it was
a famous franchise and
there's the expectations about what the movie would be if we were going to
remake it. I felt like this was the movie to make." What was the pressure
like? Bayer laughs, "The pressure was pretty intense. But the way we treat-
ed it was to just please the fans. We also did it for a new generation of fans.
My feeling was that the franchise kind of went out of steam a bit. Freddy had
become a bit of a comedic character and didn't scare anybody anymore and
I wanted to go back to what Wes Craven, the master of horror created twen-
ty-five years ago. So this movie is going back to its roots. I wanted to make
a really scary movie."

said his grandfather.
With an understanding and feeling that the judge would give him an opportunity to get his life on the right
track, Shimeek went before Judge A.C. Soud, formerly of Family Court, without a jury.
We were told by the family that the judge listened to the information provided as he witnessed that Shimeek
had family members from as far away as New York and South Carolina there to support him.
After hearing the information and seeing the support, Judge Soud said, according to family, "Because you
were known to be a good kid, you have good grades and a good family that loves you, you should have known
better. Therefore, for the first charge of Premeditated Attempted Murder, I sentence you to 70 years. On the
second charge of Armed Robbery, I sentence you to 25 years. You will serve the sentences together. The third
charge of Aggravated Battery is being dropped. The judge then deducted the 300 plus days he had already
served, leaving him around 69 years to finish his sentence. The court was appalled.
State Attorney Angela Corey said their policy is to focus on the perpetrator, not the outcome. When you pull
a trigger pointing at someone's head, you intend to kill. It was fortunate for Mr. Battle that he did not die. This
crime affected two families. She said she wish the shooters would think of their love ones before shooting.
Isiah Rumlin, president of the NAACP said that they do not condone wrong doing but this is a very harsh sen-
tence for a 15 year old and they will seek to have changes made. He said if the judges are trying to send a mes-
sage to our youth, using this young man as an example, is not the way. .
THE OTHER SIDE OF JACKSONVILLE
The Florida Star has been asked by some Jacksonville citizens to allow some views to be presented weekly We have agreed to
do so with the understanding that the articles written would not promote violence or hate. Let be known that the views and
opinions expressed are not those of The Florida Star owner qr staff It is being accepted because some writers and readers
feel their feelings and fears are not being heard. 0

A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IS NEEDED
In spite of all the difficult decisions that are made economically, politically, socially
and spiritually, the city of Jacksonville, Florida could use a spiritual awakening.
Jacksonville's problem is not racism, sexism, economic depravations or social ills;
Jacksonville's problem is a sin problem. When those who are in charge politically, ..
economically, socially, educationally and spiritually in any community and they fail ..
to do right by God's people, they are spiritually corrupt and under the judgment of. ,
God. When they deny the hungry, the homeless, sick, prisoners, and the oppressed
they sin. The only way to change this is through a spiritual awakening of the entire
community. There is an opportunity to begin on May 23, 2010 at Metropolitan Park
with the Global Day of Prayer. Everyone who believes in prayer should attend at
2:00 pm and join in with 100's of millions as they pray for repentance, revival,
restoration, forgiveness, peace and love in this world. It is the beginning of a spiri-
tual awakening that is needed when people of all cultures can come together as
Christians and pray for this world. As we pray, we should pray for a spiritual awak-
ening in Jacksonville; to break the racial barriers, stop the murdering, elimination of
the drugs, strengthening of our families and unity. Yes, the King and his court can be
corrupt, and yes, injustices do occur, but the heart of the king is in the hand of God.
It is time for our community to forgive, reconcile and to love each other as required
to have a spiritual awakening. Pray for those who despitefully use you, pray for those
who say all manner of things against you, and curse you. Forgive, and you shall be
forgiven.

These suggestions are to assist in making the gradu-
ation process easier and less stressful for families of gradu-
ating seniors in 2010.

ice hours, etc.

Trip, etc.
4. Talk to the school guidance counselor about applications for
higher education (college, trade school, etc), financial aid and
scholarship availability.
5. Cooperate and negotiate travel arrangements for Prom and
graduation trips/events. Check with other parents about sharing
transportation to events. Will there be a need for a designated
driver? Parents should talk about expectation on no drugs,
weapons and potential sexual activity.
6. Prepare for FCAT retakes if necessary. Find out when FCAT
retesting will be given and the location. Find out about tutors if
you suspect there maybe problems. Bethel Baptist Institutional
Church institutes a summer program contact the church office for
more details.
7. Make sure all fees are paid in full before graduation. Check to
see if a clearance sheet is required from guidance.
8. Know the GPA. Is it weighted or un-weighted and what the sig-
nificance of each is.
9. Make sure the SAT and the ACT are taken. Have your child
take the writing portion of the ACT many schools require this por-
tion be completed. Take each test at least twice to obtain as high

way with references and referrals for future jobs and careers.
15. Join local business organizations if possible like the Chamber
of Commerce, E3 Business Group (www.e3businessgroup.org)
to gain marketable skills and get a jump on career goals.
16. Participate in church events and activities, check to see if
your church provides scholarships, grants and fellowships.

THE EYE OF A TIGER

Stephon Pamilton is a Sr. at Andrew Jackson High School. He
has a GPA of 3.0 Stephon has attended Jackson since 2007, he has
excelled on and off the field. He has volunteered 50 hours of commu-
nity services working with young men that are in foster care. He states
that, "Not everyone has the type of parents and support that I've had.
I try to encourage them and let them know that regardless of what
you've been through, you still must do your part in life and that's being
a productive citizen." Stephon's track career has blossomed through
the years, he was the Middle School State Champion in the 400 meters
in 2006, when he ran a time of 51.64, the second fastest time in school
history, missing the record by .25sec. Since entering high school he has
continued to run remarkable times. At the District Meet he placed 1st
with a time of .49.7, Regional's he also placed 1st with a time of .48.4
and 2nd place in the State Meet where he ran his fastest time ever, at a
.47.6, which led to a photo finish, a finish that couldn't be determined
by the naked eye. Through determination and hard work, he has
improved his time by 2 seconds in three weeks. He is currently ranked
#3 in the state of Florida and #10 in the Nation. He also runs the 800m
at 1.59, my goal is to drop that to a 1.55 or better this summer. When
asked, 'What drives you to excel?" He replied, "I'm just trying to give
my parents and coaches what they gave me for all these years. I am
truly blessed for having such supportive parents, family, friends and
coaches." Special thanks to Coach Holmes. Coach Bellamy and Coach
Harold for that extra push. See you at the 2012 Olympics!!!

daughter, Shantrell, entertained the group at
her Alexandria, Virginia condominium. They
dined on fresh caught seafood at The Wharf

we use it,
it flies by,
Color Key: once we spend it, we can

Housing Assistance Program
Section 8 Rental Assistance for Veterans, Elderly 62 Years
and Above and Families With a Disabled Household Member

On May 8, 2010, applications for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher
Program will be accepted only from families who meet the selected crite-
ria of: Veterans, Elderly and Disabled. This is the only date in which you
may drop off a preliminary application at 1300 Broad Street, between
8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Applications will only be accepted. No applica-
tions will be given out (no exceptions) on May 8, 2019. Applications will
be made available online at www.jaxha.org using any computer starting
April 26, 2010 through May 8, 2010. If you do not have access to a com-
puter to print an application, you may stop by our office at 1300 Broad
Street on Saturday, May 1, 2010 only to pick up an application between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. only.

You must obtain a Criminal history verification from the Sheriff's office
or Police Sub-station located within the same county that you currently
live in. The application is not considered valid without a criminal history
attached. If you are completing this application, you must submit docu-
mentation which verifies your status of elderly (62 & above-proof of
your age required). For proof of Veteran's status, military papers are
required. For proof of disability, you must provide us with your award
letter, or proof from your doctor, on office letterhead. Copies of birth cer-
tificates and social security cards (for all household members) must
accompany the application for it to be valid. We cannot make any copies
on May 8th while receiving applications. If you mail the application to us,
it must be postmarked on May 8, 2010.

Any false or missing information will result in denial or termination of
assistance. Any eviction within the past five (5) years or felony convic-
tions of family members within 12 months of the application may make
the applicant ineligible. If you or any family member in your household
has ever been convicted of manufacturing or producing methampheta-
mines (speed) on the premises of an assisted unit and/or are subject to a
lifetime registration requirement under a state sex offender registration
program, you are permanently disqualified from receiving assistance.

Our automated information line is 630-7122

Notice: Individuals with disabilities requiring a reasonable accom-
modation to participate should contact our office at (904) 630-3820
during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday Friday.

"I'm Just Sayin"
Many people check the scale weekly hoping for weight loss,
but do very little to change their diet. Many people go to
follow the directions of the Pastor. YOU GOTTA DO SOME-
THING, do something you've never done to get something
you've never had, cause sitting in a church won't make a per-
son a Christian any more than sitting in a garage will make
them a car! I'm just sayin...
