Florida Leads U.S. in Youth Sentences


Walter A. McNeil, Secretary, Dept. of Corrections; Franchatta Barber, Assistant Secretary, Office of Re-Entry; Terrance Graham, juvenile
sentenced to life for non-murder crime; Shamar McCullum, serving life, and most recently, Shimeek D. Gridine, 15, 70 years sentence.
Florida is called "The Sunshine State". We have a governor who made one of his first changes, the ability for former prison inmates to
vote. We have Walter A. McNeil, Secretary and person in charge of the Department of Corrections, and Franchatta Barber, Assistant
Secretary, in charge of the Florida Re-Entry program. Yet, Florida has the largest number of youth in the United States, serving life or
many years of prison terms, all without parole, for crimes committed that did not include murder. The three above are from Jacksonville.
Shimeek Gridine, 15 was sentenced on the last day of April, 2010 to 70 years in prison, with no chance of parole, even though the Supreme
Court determined this week that juveniles can no longer receive a life sentence if they are not accused of murder, without the chance for
parole. But Gridine's case is different. The Jacksonville judge did not give him a life sentence, he gave him 70 years, which is the longest
term to date, in the state, for a crime in which no one was killed. At 15 years of age, he will be 85 years old when he is released. He is not
eligible for parole as the state does not allow parole. He can apply for parole after serving 85% of his sentence, which means he will serve
59 and a half years before he can seek parole, which will make him 74 years of age.
These youth are placed in a juvenile facility until they reach the age of 18. At that age, they will be placed with other adults.
So, what is the reason for a re-entry program for these youth? Even though they may regret what they did as children, only those who
come under the new Supreme Court's decision will have the opportunity to prove they Florida Continued on A-7

Senate Passes Wall


Street Regulation Bill

Now that the Senatq has finally passed the Wall Street Regulation Bill
to be tough on those investment and financial services that caused a
large deficit and problem for the country, we may see a difference that
will cause those who are blind regarding the power of the government,
only since President Obama got into the White House, to understand
what caused the problems.we are still feeling.
According to Senator Cris Dodd of Connecticut and Representative
Barney Frank of Massachusetts, work will begin immediately to marry
two versions of the legislation, one passed earlier by the House, and the
other that was approved last night by the Senate. They feel the bill can
be completed within a month and the president will be able to celebrate
July 4th with the signing.
The legislation is a response to the financial meltdown that took place
in 2008 and is continuing to affect the country.
Many business organizations are attacking the passing of the bill as a
item that will kill jobs. However, it is also argued that the de-regula-
tions that we have experienced, is what caused the large number of jobs
and homes to be lost.
What many are feeling is the past decade of de-regulations is what real-
ly crippled the economy and the citizens of the United States.
July 4, 2010 is a day, if the bill is able to be signed at that time, will

A Georgia

Legend


Dr. Thomas Edward
McCloud was born in
Brunswick in 1930 and has
been a service to the commu-
nity all of his life.
A graduate of Risley High, he
received degrees from Ft.
Valley, University of Illinois
and Wayne State University.
Dr. McCloud served in the
49th Army band, was
employed as band director at
Carver High and at Risley
High before serving as a psy-
chologist at Wayne County
Child Development Center in
Detroit.
He was a member of St.
James Lutheran Church, and
active in Boy Scouts of
America as well as Omega Psi
Phi.
Dr. McCloud received many
honors prior to his death last
Saturday while at his office in
Brunswick.
He was a very active man,
and never ceased to give serv-
ice to others.


These identical twins, 19, of Brunswick, attacked a cancer patient and his wife and tried to rob
them. The couple were in a Brunswick park, during the day, when the twins approached them.
Robert Johns, the 68 year old patient, was being pushed by his wife in the wheel chair around
11 a.m. Marquita punched the wife, Keri Johns in the face. The women were larger than the
couple, and no one helped them in the struggle. The couple through the women were men.

Black and White Wealth Difference
According to the Institute on Assets and Social Policy at Brandeis University, there is a surpris-
ingly large gap between black and white families when it come to accumulated wealth. The gap
since 1974, according to the study, rose from $20,000 to$95,000. The study defined wealth as
the collar value of assets minus debt.
It found that middle-income white households saw a greater increase in wealth than high-income
African Americans.
In 2007, according to the study, one in 10 African Americans owed $3,600, which was twice as
much of their debt in 1984.
In addition, at least 15 percent of all African American families had no assets to turn to during
tough economic times.

Woman Loses Home Because of Water Bill
Vicki Valetine of Baltimore, Maryland lost her home that had her
Father had paid off in 1984, because she had a $362 water bill that
increased to $3,600 after being turned over to a collection agency.
The agency filed documents and foreclosed on her home based on
the debt, the had of $3,600.
There are many states that allow liens to be placed on property
based on debt of other matters, such as homeowners association fees.

BlackAmericaWeb COMMENTARY

Stupidity, Arrogance Abound


Date: Wednesday, May 19, 2010, 3:19 am
By: Tonyaa Weathersbee, BlackAmericaWeb.com

Looks like Texas is just the beginning.
In that state, the Board of Education is tweaking the social studies textbooks to force history to fit their fan-
tasies. Besides toning down Thomas Jefferson's role as a founding father because he coined the phrase "separa-
tion of church and state," according to the El Paso Times, those loonies now want to cast Ida B. Wells and W.E.B.
Dubois as people who spewed negative views about America.
I guess they figure that, by Wells and Dubois being black and thereby expected to uphold their ideas of sub-
servience, it was their patriotic duty to be silent about the lynchings and black suffering that was occurring during
that time; that they should have been satisfied with America's promise of equality rather than actually force
America to keep it.
At the same time, the board has all but ignored Latinos.
One board member who voted against the changes in March told PBS that the books include few specifics about
the Jim Crow style of discrimination that Mexican-Americans experienced in Texas.
Now, it seems Texas' urge to spare schoolchildren of any lessons that threaten notions of white privilege and
American moral perfection has crept further west.
To Arizona.
Right after signing a law that will invariably lead the police to pay closer attention to Latinos by forcing them to
prove that they aren't in the country illegally, its governor, Jan Brewer, recently signed another law that can lead
to making them and other minorities invisible.
In classroom lessons, that is.
The new law bans most ethnic studies from being taught in Arizona. Schools risk losing funding if they offer
courses that "promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, promote resentment of a particular race or class of
people, are designed for a particular ethnic group, or advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils
.as individuals."
In other words, any courses in which the facts are too inconvenient for white folks to deal with.
The arrogance here is staggering.
First of all, it's no secret that black people and Latinos have, throughout their history, struggled against the sub-
jugation of a U.S. government that was run by whites. For us, it was slavery and Jim Crow, and years of being
legally barred from opportunities .that would have enabled us to build wealth and to create new opportunities.
Latinos have also struggled with displacement, segregation and other forms of discrimination.
Yet the Texas education board and Arizona lawmakers care more about protecting the feelings of white conser-
vatives who never experienced the pain of legal segregation than telling the stories of the black and Latino
people who are, in many ways, still struggling with the aftereffects.
That logic only makes sense in White Privilege Land.
Then again, something like this was bound to happen. The crush of Latino immigrants, plus a black man in the
White House, was bound to cause some white folks to want to rewrite the rules with a pen dripping with
hypocrisy.
For example, one member of the Texas education board lauded the fact that truthfulness and values would be
taught in the social studies curriculum. But how can they emphasize honesty if the
curriculum doesn't include the truth about Mexican-Americans and segregation?
Or any context about Wells and DuBois patriots who used their voice not to mind-
lessly criticize America, but to point out that it wasn't living up to the ideals that peo-
ple now want it to be lauded for?
And in Arizona, how can history and lessons in contemporary America be compe-
tently taught without featuring ethnic studies? and how irresponsible is it for such
courses to be banned at a time when it's probably more important than ever for all
students to know about the history and the lives of minorities who will soon make up
a majority of the U.S. population?
And how hypocritical is it for any of the Texas education board members, or Arizona
lawmakers, to claim that they're changing the curriculum to emphasize American val-
ues and ideals and to tamp down racial resentment when they don't want to include
textbook lessons or offer courses that show what went wrong when America didn't
live up to those ideals?
I guess they don't see it.
For them, it's easier to use the power of white privilege to ignore uncomfortable
chapters in American history.
nG o gaOr, for that matter, to simply write them out.

During Reconstruction (1875-1890), we had a black president, we had
black senators, congressmen, and a whole lot more. But then, we did
not have full voting rights, and lost them all. Remember
Reconstruction It has been 145 years since the last slaves were
freed Juneteenth. Voting is not only a privilege, it is a MUST!

GEORGE A. ROMERO

GODFATHER 'OF THE ZOMBIE MOVIES!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/ FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTO COURTESY OF MAGNET FILMS


When you initially meet him, he is a fairly
polite and soft spoken man. His in person demeanor is
certainly one that you wouldn't expect that could bring
such horror, violence and mayhem to the big screen. He


even has a disarming sense of humor about all of the
hoopla associated with his film. The man is none
other then George A. Romero, the father, godfather,
creator and master of the zombie film genre. It all
began for the New York City native after he graduat-
ed from Pittsburgh's Carnegie Melton University and
went into filming shorts, industrials and commercials.
A segment he shot for Mister Roger's children show
where Roger's underwent a tonsillectomy inspired
Romero to go into the horror film business. He and a
couple of friends started a company called Image Ten
Productions. They each chipped in ten thousand dol-
lars and produced the now'classic "Night Of The
Living Dead" in 1968.
A vampire themed film follow then came
"Dawn of the Dead" which became on of the most
profitable independent films in history and at the
same time solidifying Romero's stamp and authority
on the genre. 1982's Creepshow teamed him with hor-
ror master Stephen King who wrote the script for a
cast of well know actors and "Day of the Dead" fol-
lowed in 1985. Romero kept cranking out the zombie
dead films with "Land of the Dead" (2005), "Diary of
the Dead" (2006) which brought him back to his inde-
pendent film roots and his current "Survival of the
Dead." Now that he is independent again and an estab-


lished veteran, how is he positioned in the business
these days? Romero grins knowing the answer is obvi-
ous, "I have thoughts in my head about interweaving
themes, having things happen at the same time and
having the ability now because we have ownership
position in these films to do whatever I want."
Because of his independent status, Romero
views his future films as a new cycle of film making for
himself beginning with his latest offering "Survival of
the Dead" due in theaters May 28, 2010. Romero
reflects on the new film, "This is sort of a parallel time
line with the first four (zombie films). The first four
seem to progress along a certain line, now these would
be like the first night and then a few months later.
What's the world like a few months later? So I do see
these two (the film out now and the one coming behind
it), as the beginning of sort of a new little chapter."
With so many "dead" films out, do they last?
Romero's eyes sparkle, "I've been incredibly lucky
man; my stuff has this shelf life. I mean it's all still
around. I go to these horror conventions and I have sev-
enteen year old fans and seventy year old fans. It's ter-
rific! And there's always new editions coming out. I
don't know where they get the supposedly new
footage. I sure didn't shoot it!


Condolences:
Our prayers, well
wishes and thoughts go out to
the family, friends and fans of
the late, great, master jazz
pianist, composer and arranger
Hank Jones who made his
transition to our ancestors this
past Sunday at a New York
City hospital at the age of 91
following a brief illness. Joins

cian brothers in death i.e.,

TV:
This week is full of sea-
son ending finals for the
CW-TV Network. Gossip
Girl, One ,Tree Hill and
90210 all wrap up this
week. VH1 TV reality show
Basketball Wives, produced
and hosted by Shaquille
O'Neal's soon-to-be ex-wife
Shaunie, has a lot of people
uncomfortable and heated
up. This may even include
the NBA itself! According to
an unconfirmed report,
Shaq has a signed confi-
dentiality agreement with


Shaunie and threatened to
shut the show down if his
name is even mentioned in
print or over the air, via a
letter from his team of attor-
neys to the network. One
blogger said the show was
named Basketball Wives
because "Gold Diggin
Chicken Heads" would be
too accurate ouch!
Political Move:
The two ridiculous,
idiot, stereotyped, racist hip
hop autobots that embarrassed
and angered Black Afrikan
folks everywhere from the
second Transformers movie
have been rightfully axed from
the script of the third
Transformers movie now in
pre-production according to

going on between the O'Flynn.

things weren't bad enough, the
zombie plague strikes the
island and the two at war fam-
ilies go about the problem
with conflicting philosophies
that don't help the situation.
The O'Flynn's say shoot to

did the robbing of the rich but

MAY2.200 HE-TAPGEA-


Talking To An Attorney
By Burney Bivens, Esq., LFD
FAMILY LAW Visitation

One of the most vexing aspects of a divorce involves visitation. Frequently people who
normally make sound decisions fall into the trap of using the kids to strike back at the other
parent in a divorce. Florida has taken steps to try and limit such disagreements by requiring
that every divorce with children has to have a time-sharing agreement filed and approved by
the court. The courts also require that both parents attend and complete a state approved course
that is designed to emphasis to BOTH parents the fact that the children are innocent parties and
they need BOTH parents involved in their upbringing.
The time-sharing agreement is a detailed document that spells out each parent's rights
AND obligations when it comes to visitation. It tells us who the children are going to be liv-
ing with primarily and what kind of visitation rights the other parent has with the children.
What is unique about a time-sharing agreement is the enforcement rights each party has with
regards to visitation. A parent that does not exercise his/her rights as well as his/her obligations
can be held in contempt of court. This means that a non-custodial parent who fails to take the
kids for a visitation can be held in contempt the same way a custodial parent can be held in
contempt for withholding visitation. This way a custodial parent can confidently make plans
for those times when the other parent is to have visitation without worrying that the non-cus-
todial parent will back out at the last minute. A word of caution though. Denial of visitation is
NOT an excuse to delay or not pay any court ordered child support. Conversely non-payment
of child support is NOT an excuse to deny visitation.
Time-sharing agreements also recognize that both parents have the right tobe kept
informed about their children. A common provision allows both parents full access to school
and medical records. Both parents can, and are encouraged, to attend school functions such as
school plays and any school sponsored events. Both parents are free to talk with the children's
doctors. Both parents can make emergency decisions concerning the kids and both are required
to inform the other parent as soon as possible of any such decisions.
A time-sharing agreement also puts down in black and white one of the major points
discussed in the court ordered parenting class. Neither party is to use the kids as messengers or
go between. The parents are to talk to each other and leave the children out of any disputes
that may arise. Neither parent is to bad mouth the other parent in front of the children NOR are
they to allow someone else to do so. This means if the other parent is not paying child support
or is denying visitation.you leave the kids out of it. You don't tell your son that you can't buy
him that new bike because his dad hasn't paid child support. You don't tell your daughter that
you didn't attend her school play because mommy raised a fuss. You don't let the grandpar-
ents complain about what a poor mommy/daddy the other parent is when the kids are
in the room.
The bottom line is, and will remain, best interests of the children. The parents are sup-
posed to be grown ups and are expected to act that way. Being a parent means investing your
time and love in your child as well as your money. Kids need more than just food on the table
and a roof over their heads. They need love, encouragement and guidance if they are to grow
up and be what you want them to be.

and funeral service related issues. Mr. Bivens has practiced law in North Florida for 27 years and has provided

fearless approach to reality-based subjects!


MEMMMU


Dear Deanna! II
The last time I had a relationship was almost 2 years ago. I -
had a bad experience with a man that crushed my heart and '
I've had a hard time trusting again. I look at every guy as if
they'll do the same thing. I was lied to, cheated on, used and
everything else in between. I have myself together and I'm ready to get back into
the dating -scene but feel no man will want me.
Paulette Winston Salem, NC

Dear Paulette:
Prepare yourself to be a wife looking for a husband instead of just another woman
looking for a date. Elevate your morals, your faith and your confidence by looking
in the mirror and seeing a woman that's special and deserves the best in life. You
need to be patient and pray for what you want. You don't have to settle for less and
you can do bad by yourself. It's best to be alone and happy than involved and mis-
erable.

Dear Deanna!
When is it time to talk to a teenager about sex? I have a teen son and I want to talk
with him about the birds and bees before he learns the wrong way from his friends
and in the street. I don't know if I should try to tell him a story, show him pictures
or what. How can I do this without embarrassing him but make sure he gets the
point?
Stephanie Chicago, IL

Dear Stephanie:
If you have cable or a radio in your house, you son knows more,than you think.
Don't beat around the bush. Verbally break it down and let him know the function
of the genitalia, how it works and how to stay safe from diseases and unplanned
pregnancy. Teach him that true love waits until marriage to avoid fornication and if
he has to go there, have plenty of condoms.. So what if he's embarrassed. It's better
to be embarrassed and educated than dumb with a bunch of babies or a sexually
transmitted disease.

Dear Deanna!
I have a cousin that cheats on her husband but that's her business. However, she
claims she's out with me and our friends. On one occasion, she had the nerve to tell
me not to call her house. The last lie was when she told her husband that I needed
a jacket and she was bringing it to my house. I live 60 miles away. Now her hus-
band acts funny towards me.
Anonymous Indianapolis, IN

Dear Anonymous:
Let your scandalous cousin know that you want no part of her infidelity. Advise her
that the next time she involves you that you're going to call her husband and clear
your name on the spot. If that means she'll be mad, then oh well. She'll get over it.
Your main concern is eliminating your assumed involvement and name smearing.

Some airlines have developed behavior-modification techniques for those
who are afraid
to fly or have motion sickness. Contact the airline or travel agent for
information.
* Psychological factors contribute to motion sickness. Try to resolve con-
cerns about travel before leaving home. Maintain a positive attitude.
* Consider preventive therapy. One technique involves desensitization
(special training for using your eyes that may help avoid the symptoms of
motion sickness).

WHAT TO EXPECT
DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES
* Your own observation of symptoms.
* Medical history and physical exam by a doctor, if motion sickness is
recurrent and interferes with your life.
APPROPRIATE HEALTHCARE
* Self-care.
* Doctor's treatment, if you have a chronic illness that may be worsened by
vomiting.
.* Psychotherapy or counseling, if your occupation or lifestyle requires trav-
el and you usually develop motion sickness.
POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS
* Dehydration from vomiting.
* Falls and injuries from unsteadiness.
PROBABLE OUTCOME: Spontaneous recover when the trip is over or soon
thereafter.

HOW TO TREAT
GENERAL MEASURES'
* Once you have the symptoms, try to rest in a dark room with a cool cloth
over the eyes and forehead.
* Allowing yourself to vomit can help the nausea. Don't make yourself
vomit.

MEDICATION
* For minor discomfort, you may use non-prescription drugs, such as
dimenydrinate (Dramamine), before and during travel.
* Your doctor may prescribe scopolamine patches to control symptoms.
Remove promptly after travel is completed; long-term use is not recommend-
ed.

ACTIVITY: To minimize symptoms during travel, rest in a reclining position
and fix your gaze on a distant object.

DIET: Eat lightly or not at all before and during brief trips. For longer trips, sip
frequently on beverages don't take large drinks to maintain your fluid intake.
Avoid alcohol, carbonated drinks and extra-cold beverages


CALL YOUR DOCTOR IF

You plan to travel and have had disabling motion sickness in the past.

On Saturday May 15, 2010 at 9:50pm the victim told Officer B.B.
Norton and Officer M.L.
Hice that while she was at
6107 Youngerman Circle
when she was sitting in
her passenger seat of her
vehicle running when the
suspect James Ivory
Moore (2153 Dunsford
4Terrace, 21 years old)
l jumped into the driver's
seat and pointed a...
black handgun at the vic-
tim.
The suspect took off driv-
-- .- ing. The victim took a
cigar and burned the sus-
pect on the his right
cheek which caused him
to slow down while driv-
ing the vehicle. When the
vehicle slowed the victim
was able to jump out of
the vehicle.
When the original call
went out Sgt. C.J. Collier
advised dispatch to let Clay County know because of the close proximity.
Two Clay County deputies observed the suspect vehicle driving and
pulled into the Kangaroo gas station at 7911 Blanding Boulevard. Both
Clay County and Jacksonville Sheriffs Office conducted traffic stop and
took the suspect in custody. The suspect confessed to the carjacking and
was taken to jail.

On May 18, 2010
Homicide Team 5 was dis-
patched to 8090 Atlantic
Boulevard (Mathews
Crossing Apartments) in
reference to a 10 month
old victim being shot.
The suspect (brother of
the victim, Angel Luis
Lopez, 22 years old, 8090
Atlantic Boulevard #H48)
h called her prior to the inci-
dent and threatened to
injure her friend.
The victim grabbed her
baby and left in her friends
vehicle. As they were leav-
ing the apartment complex
the suspect stopped in
front of them, got out of
the vehicle and began
shooting at them.
According to the victim,
the first shot struck the
baby and then her. The
victim stated that her friend came around the vehicle, grabbed them and
they began to run back to the apartment.
The victim stated that she yelled at the suspect that he shot the
baby, but the suspect just kept shooting the weapon as they were running
away. The victim stated said the suspect shot at them with an old Wooden
Rifle.
As they ran back to the apartment they were continued to be shot
at.
The victim was grazed by a bullet on her right side and the 10
month old baby was shot one time in the left leg.
The suspect turned himself into the police station this morning.
The suspect invoked his Constitutional Rights, was arrested and trans-
ported to the PTDF.

A message from the Sheriffs Office:
We have all experienced irritation when a careless driver has cut
in front of us, or when someone has taken a parking space for which we
have been waiting. It's natural to feel annoyed when these things happen.
However, circumstances such as this can lead to unsafe driving if we let
our emotions get out of hand.
If som...ething in traffic bothers you, be sure to keep in mind the
"One Year Rule": before reacting, stop to think whether that event (a driv-
er honking or yelling at you; someone cutting you off in traffic, etc.) will
matter one year, one month or even one day from now. The answer will
likely be "no", and you probably won't even remember the event in a few
months. Therefore, it's much better to let it go, rather than allow the fool-
ish actions of another person to push you into making a bad choice. If we
don't keep a level head, situations like this can escalate to incidents of
road rage and result in injury or even death.

You will be popular with

you out of your hard-earned
cash. People trying to entice
you to join in will be less than
trustworthy.


Helping children may be
rewarding and challenging.
You need a break from your

"I'm Just Sayin"
If you can think about your past problems, then you can
think about future victories! Stop replaying your past
hurts and pain. Thinking about past injusticies can some-
times do more damage than the experience itself. Use
your imagination to see your wonderful future, but
NEVER dwell on past failures.....I'm just sayin
