Fourth grade teacher, Jarretta Hamilton admitted to
the Southland Christian School in St. Cloud, Florida
that she had conceived before her marriage. She
requested maternity leave and one week later, she
was dismissed. The teacher was advised that she
was teaching at a Christian school and was there-
fore fired because she committed fornication .which
is against the church's teaching. The school said
that the teacher had made an agreement in her job
application to uphold standards related to the
school's values. Sex before marriage, according to
S the officials, is not upholding their standards.

Airport in London
Adebayo Ogunlesi, who is called, Bayo, is the
new owner of one of the world's most recognized
airports Gatwick.
Ogunlesi is 56, and is the chairman and managing
partner of Global Infrastructure Partners which is
an independent investment fund based in New York
City. He is from Nigeria and is the son of an 86-
.year-old professor medicine.
i The acquisition of Gatwick is a magnificent step
in expanding his company's assets.
In his television interview, Ogunlesi said that he is
Adebayo Ogunlesi, 56, new owner going "to make Gatwick a truly first class experi-
of Gatwick Airport, London ence." He feels the improvements he desire will
take from 12 to. 18 months. ,By that time, he said,
the passengers will notice the change.
Even though Ogunlesi has made the purchase, the sale must be approved by the
European Union which should be done by the end of 2010. The company was forced
to sell.
Minorities Now 35 Percent of U.S.,
More Than 50 Percent of Four States
Have you been wondering why there is so much racial drama in America today?
The Census Bureau' estimate is the most likely reason. Their latest report states that
minorities now make up 35 percent of the U. S. population and more than 50 percent
of Texas, Hawaii, New Mexico, California and Washington, D. C.
This update show that minorities increased by 107.2 million or 2.5 percent last year,
with growth coming from Hispanic births arid biracial individuals. The white .popu-
lation remained flat at under 200 million, 65 percent of the country. In 2009, whites
made up 79 percent of the population, according to an AP report.
In Florida, more than half of children born during the past five years, are racial or
ethnic minorities.
In this area, the Hispanic population is still small but nearly tripled since 2000.

Attorney Elizabeth Webb, Paralegal Nicola Pare, Division Chief Jenna Love, Paralegal Butch
Tanner, Director Rob Mason, Public Defender Matt Shirk, Legal Assistant Nicole Butler,
Juvenile Mentor Sylvester Black, APD Diana Johnson, APD Rob Bowers.
Even though there are many juveniles serving time, according to the Office of the
Defender, Attorneys from the Juvenile Unit in the Office of Public Defender Matt
Shirk say they work tirelessly defending clients and during a ten-day period within
the month of May earned two difficult 'not guilty' verdicts in trials and various other
legal victories.
For example, APD Diana Johnson led the defense where her client was charged
with marijuana possession. She said, together she and her second chair in that trial,
Rob Mason, convinced the judge to rule "not guilty" because the State used a flawed
process of identifying the 'substance' which the client was accused of possessing
giving reasonable doubt that it was indeed marijuana.
Because of the number of juveniles in the State of Florida that have been given
extremely long sentences as well as life sentences for crimes less than murder, many
citizens are asking how to be assigned a 'winning' defender.
This week's Letter to the Editor is from a Florida prison inmate who is concerned
about the case of the 15 year old who received 70 years in prison. In fact, the write
pointed out some things that he feels will be helpful in the case, and wondered why
the juvenile's attorney-did not present or order such.


Report Say Gulf Seafood is Safe
According to the most recent reports regarding the
Gulf oil spill, seafood is still available and still plenti-
ful, with no medical threats.
A Louisiana restaurant owner said people believing
that the seafood is damaged, is causing restaurants like
his a hardship. He said, "We need consumers to under-
stand and believe that we're delivering a safe, quality
product, because we are."
Right now, according to the report, crab and shrimp
cost more and oyster prices have soared. "Oysters
can't move out of the way of the oil."
The Drug Administration and experts at Louisiana
State University are constantly pulling samples to make
sure the seafood served is safe.

With the new Arizona
new law which is against
ethnic studies and Texas
now changing their text
books to "white wash' its
public education by
focusing on conservative
ideology, it is imperative
that parents get with their
children and teach them
their heritage. Such is not
'ethnic chauvinism' as
portrayed.


Chris Brown

Not Allowed


Chris Brown was due to begin a
mega promotional European tour
in June. However, Brown was
denied a work visa by government
officials. According to sources, the
British government does not take
folks who have been accused and
convicted, of a felonious crime and
therefore, reserve their right to be
selective as to whom they let in.
Chris Brown has not been allowed.


It was reported on the
Jacksonville news that a
102 year old lady, Emma
Watson, power was
turned off by JTA, putting
her in the hospital.
Ms. Watson has lived in
the house for 80 years.
JTA said they have
adjusted her $2,000 bill
down to $300. The
Jacksonville Assoc. of
Firefighters will help her.

SLetter to the Editor


RE: JACKSONVILLE CHILD, 15, GET 70 YEARS SENTENCE

Dear Editor:
Greetings to you as I pray this letter shall be received by you well in health and spirit. Please excuse my intru-
sion, however, I write this letter to you after reading The Florida and Georgia Star.
Let me say with only knowing the details of this case as reported in your paper and given the recent decision of
the United States Supreme Court on a child receiving a life sentence without parole, Shimeek Daquiel Gridine sen-
tence too is a manifest injustice. I can remember not long ago when such an injustice in this child's sentence would
have been considered outrageous, and the ministers within the community would have marched on the Duval
County Courthouse demanding justice for a fourteen years old child. I'm with the understanding there were two
children involved in this offense, one was treated as a juvenile and received a juvenile punishment and the other
child treated as an adult, facing the prospect of death in a prison sell. I truly thank the Lord in this case, that Mr.
Battle wasn't seriously injured. With reading the article, I have a number of concerns I'll like to bring to your
attention in concern of the 70 years sentence this child received.
First it was reported the children found the gun, and they may not have even known if t was operatable until it
went off. Shimeek offense of attempted murder was a first degree felony, however, when a firearm is used the
degree of the felony is enhanced to a life felony, and the sentence when Judge Soud opts to a number of years can-
not exceed forty (40) years. Now render the 70 years sentence as a matter of law illegal. In sentencing there are
a number of factors Judge Soud must take into consideration, (1) the victim Mr. Battle, what was his.sentenceing
recommendation to the court? (2) With this still being a child, what was the Department of Juvenile Justice sen-
tencing recommendation for Shimeek to Judge Soud? (3) The Florida Department of Correction did what is
known as a presentence investigation report, what was the Department of Corrections sentencing recommendation
for this first time child felony offender to Judge Soud? There are a large number of children offenders with the
Juvenile Justice System, that have committed far greater crimes than Shimeek committed. In Florida there is no
uniformity in the method a judge uses to treat a child that commit a felony as in Shimeek's case, yet the other child
was, thank God, treated as the law intended a juvenile.
May I address my next issue of concern, that addresses the mental state of a fourteen year old child to form the
specific intent to commit this crime?
The attorney should have ordered a psychological evaluation to determine this child's mental state and for any
mental illness. This information should have been made known to Shimeek's parent prior to him accepting the
State's plea offer.
Editor, with being a Florida prison inmate for almost forty (40) years, I would like to tell you do not be deceived,
as I would like to inform you there is no chance of parole for Shimeek. October 1, 1983 parole was abolished in
this state unless you were sentenced prior to October 1, 1983 or up until October 1, 1994 and you receive a 25
years minimal life sentence. Shimeek will have to serve 85% of his 70 years sentence and then be it the will of
God, he'll be released on conditional release to serve 100% of the 70 years sentence. This fifteen (15) years old
child given a 70 years prison term without the possibility of parole for a crime short of homicide, gives no chance
for fulfillment outside prison walls, no chance for reconciliation with society, and no hope.
Such a severe punishment should be available for more heinous offenses. This child given a 70 years prison term
shall surely die in prison absent a Governor pardon. The United States Supreme Court Justice Kennedy has
recently wrote, "the juvenile should not be deprived of the opportunity to achieve
maturity of judgement and self-recognition of human worth and potential." State's
Attorney Angela Corey in her statement concerning intent crimes, yet the state's attor-
ney office every day are making plea offers to habitual felony offenders with murder
and other serious crimes that are sentenced for far less than a fifteen (15) years old
child.
Do I think Shimeek Daquiel Gridine should be punished for his crime? Sure, and
that's the job of the Department of Juvenile Justice. A motion to Disqualify Judge A.
C. Soud should be filed to keep him off Shimeek's case.
I pray you please investigate the. facts of this letter in hope of saving this child's life
from the hell he now face within the prison factory of the State of Florida.
"A child is worth saving if we all pitch in and give a hand."

Field Hearing on
Recreational Therapy
and Healing our
Wounded Warriors June
8 2010 New Port Richey
City Hall New Port
Richey Florida
New Port Richey, FL
Recreational therapy
and healing our wounded
warriors was the topic of
discussion at a recent
Department of Veterans
Affairs field hearing
chaired by
Congresswoman Corrine
Brown.
During the three panel
discussions and testi-
monies from veterans, vet-
eran advocates and med-
ical professionals,
Congresswoman Brown,
along with fellow VA
committee members Gus
Bilirakis, and Jeff Miller,
learned of the need for
quality rehabilitative care
for all veterans, both of
older generations and
those now returning from
Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation
Iraqi Freedom.
"Recreational therapy
is an ideal component of
the rehabilitative regimen
because it allows veterans
to be active by engaging
in their favorite sports and
recreational activities,
while simultaneously
healing the mental and
physical wounds of war,"
Brown said.
Veterans spoke how
recreational therapy pro-
grams helped them over-
come the need for pre-
scription drugs, assisted
them in forgetting about
depression and suicide,
and allowed them partici-
pate in everyday activities.
Some of the advocates
described how their pro-
grams of horseback riding,
sailing and golfing were
therapeutic tools and cata-
lysts for positive change.
Dr. Steven G. Scott
and Cathy Chiovitti
Williams, both from the
James A. Haley Veterans'
Hospital in Tampa,.spoke
of the newest veterans
coming to them with brain
injuries, ranging from
minimal to profound,
post-traumatic stress dis-
order (PTSD) and other
mental health programs,
and multiple injuries that
often need prolonged
rehabilitation. The hospi-
tal's program provides
patient-centered recre-
ation therapy services that
helps veterans develop
new skills needed for
daily living, community
functioning and quality of
life.
Congresswoman
Brown stated one of the
key challenges facing the
VA today is the ability to
meet the rehabilitative
needs of our veterans by
providing a broad and var-
ied menu of therapies and
treatments. She said
would like to see the suc-
cessful programs at the

ROSE BYME

WILD'S IT OUT ROCK STYLE!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/FEEDBACKRYCH&@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTOS COURTESY UNIVERSAL PICTURES


In her latest role as way out
rock singer Jackie Q who is the girl-
friend of burned out superstar rock
god Aldous Snow played by British
comedian/actor Russell Brand in the
new movie "Get Him To The Greek;"
actress Rose Byme really gets to
stretch and push the creative enve-
lope. The movie is about record exec-
utive Aaron Green, played by Jonah
Hill, being given 72 hours to get
Snow from London to LA's Greek
Theatre for a comeback concert.
Between the two cities, all hell breaks loose with
Byme's character Jackie Q in the middle. Byme is
beginning to become more and more familiar with
American film audiences and this movie which debuted
#2 at the box office with a 17 million opening weekend
gate should help bolster her screen recognition even
further.
The Sydney, Australia native began acting as a
child landing her first movie role for the film "Dallas
Doll" at age 12. Byme studied dramatic acting at
Sydney's Australian Theatre For Young People and
later at the David Mamet Acting School in New York
City. Byme's Australian TV career included the hits
shows "Heartbreak High" and "Echo Point." Several
films followed including "Two Hands" with the late
Heath Ledger and "Clara's Law The Goddess of 1967."
For that role Byme was awarded The Female Volpi Cup
at The Venice Festival in 2000. Byme's first big budg-
et role in the U.S. was that of the house maiden, Dorme


in "Star Wars: Episode II Attack Of The Clones"
(2002). She also stared in several other films including
the psychological thriller "Wicker Park" and "Troy" as
Briseis with Brad Pit. That role had the critics praising
her as one of the most promising actresses in
Hollywood.
When asked how she prepared for this role as a

Black Boycott of Comcast Called:
The NCAAOM (The National Coalition of
African-American Owned Media) has called for
Blacks nationwide to cancel and pull their sub-,
scription to Comcast Cable. According to an April
27, 2010 LA Times article, Stanley E.
Washington, NCAAOM CEO/President said;
"For decades Comcast has shut the door to wide-
ly distribute wholly-owned African-American
channels" According to Washington's statements
in the article, Blacks Comcast subscribers con-
tribute an estimated 40% or $15 billion to
Comcast's annual $36 billion yearly intake and
finds it unacceptable that NONE of the 250 plus
channels offered and distributed by Comcast over
the last four decades are 100% African-American
owned.
Movies:
Sex In The City 2; Warner Bros. Pictures,
HBO Films, New Line Cinema; Starring Sarah
Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and
Cynthia Nixon. Written and Directed by Michael
Patrick King. Produced by Michael Patrick King,
John Melfi, Sarah Jessica Parker and Darren Star.
This flick is doing so-so at the box office and
that's about right. Samantha (Cattrall) is very dis-
respectful to the sexually restrictive behavior not
allowed by women in the Arab Musilum country
of United Arab Emirates and its city of Abu
Dhabi. The movie is slow and mainly uneventful.
Save it for cable or a rental.
Prince of Persia (The Sands of Time); Walt
Disney Pictures; Starring Jake Gyllenhaal,
Gemma Arterton, Sir Ben Kingsley, Alfred
Molina, Steve Toussaint, Toby Kebbell and
Richard Coyle. Directed by Mike Newell.
Screenplay by Boaz Yakin, Doug Miro and Carlo
Bernard. Screen Story by Jordan Mechner based
on his video game series Prince of Persia.
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The special
effects in this film are good and the story is pretty
basic to follow. Of course the mighty warrior
always ends up with the fine, sexy queen. This
film has no factual or actual history base but is
OK for fantasizing!

wilded out rocker Byme laughs, "I
looked at a lot of "YouTube" of every-
one from Rhianna, Lady GaGa to early
Madonna to Kylie Minogue and lots of
footage like that and then footages of
producers, pop stars and things like
that. I did a lot of that stuff and that was
really helpful; that was great because
I'm not savvy with my popular culture.
So I had to educate myself." Byme real-
ly enjoyed, doing her own actual music
video for the film which was part of the
overall film shoot.
How comfortable or not was Byme with her
character's on screen sense of rocker fashion? Again
she laughs, "It is clearly different from my personal
fashion but it really informed me as to whom she was
and it was such an opportunity to go crazy and wear
some wild stuff. Some of the things I would never
wear. We had a great costume designer Lisa Evans so
that was really fun." There was a scene in the movie
where Jackie Q gets dead serious when she tells Aldous
the truth about his son. What was it like for her to
switch gears in that direction after being wild through-
out the movie? Byme takes a breath, "That was Jackie's
big confession and Nick (the director) said to me before
we started the scene 'this is absolutely for real. You
cannot play for laughs. This is the hardest thing you'll
ever have to do in your life. This is a huge confession;
something that you've harbored for years. You have to
play the gravity of the situation.' So it was like OK.
That scene was really hard -- yes!"

RECENT STUDIES HOTELS
AND DUMBNESS
Two reports were released regarding the
City of Jacksonville this week.
HotelsComined.com named the top ten
places to celebrate Independence day and
therefore included Jacksonville as one of
the top ten. The report said from rockets
with red glares bursting over crystal blue
waters to outdoor concerts and sand cas-
tles contests galore, American traditions
on the Independence Day holiday create
memories that will last long after the fire-
works fade. The organization is the
world's largest hotel search engine and
price aggregator and Jacksonville made
their list.
Then, the city was part of another survey
that named Jacksonville as the second
most uneducated city out of 52 major
cities in the U.S. per square mile. The per-
son doing the survey is an Internet blogger
and economist who labels the cities based
on the number of college degree holders
per square mile to create his list.
Did he consider that Jacksonville is one
of the largest cities in the world, land
wise?


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-shar-
ing 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 par-
ties 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 living 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 with-
holding 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-custodial 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 to be 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 par-
ents 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 par-
ent 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 grandparents 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 supposed 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, encourage-
ment and guidance if they are to grow up and be what you want them to be.

eral months a series of articles will appear regarding legal issues and fineral service related issues. Mr Bivens has practiced law in North Florida for 27 years and has

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column Knownf jr its
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!

Dear Deanna!


I want to share with the readers my secret to a good rela-
tionship. My husband and I get along just fine because I
stay in my place, respect him as a man, and provide my
womanly duties of cooking and cleaning. I don't have to
worry about him cheating and we settle our problems by talking. Hopefully
some of your readers can benefit from this tidbit.
Terri Thomas Dover, DE

Dear Terri:

Congratulations Miss Cleaver on your relationship that's perfectly in order.
Indeed, two people in a relationship have roles that must be fulfilled. However,
what works for you may not work for others because people and their expecta-
tions are different. Thanks for sharing and continued success to the both of
you.


Dear Deanna!

My boyfriend and I have dated for 3-years and I gave him a key to my apart-
ment. Now that he can come in, eat, sleep and go as he pleases, things have
changed. He doesn't come over as often and when he does, it's late at night.
I've asked him for a key to his place but he said no without an explanation. I
told him I wanted my key back and he\ said if I take it from him or change the
locks,therelationship is over. Was it a mistake to give him a key in the first
place?


Tanya On-Line Reader

Dear Tanya:


If his name isn't on the lease then he shouldn't have a key. You made yourself
vulnerable because he knows you won't entertain anyone else since he can show
up at any time. He's not going to give you a key because he's not as committed
as you are. You should take your key and if that's the only thing that can end
the relationship, then you' don't need him. If he refuses, then change your
locks, make him knock on the door for a visit and keep it moving.


Dear Deanna!

I'm in the middle of a bad divorce and I'm still intimate with my ex-husband.
Although we didn't get along, couldn't build a life or raise our family together,
we were able to bond physically. The reason we're divorcing is due to outside
affairs with other people, financial problems and marrying too soon. I want to
move on with my life but for some reason, manage to keep this part of the rela-
tionship going. Am I wrong for doing this?


Worried Divorcee


Atlanta, GA


Dear Worried:

Sex is the fuel for a relationship and not the glue. If you're divorcing your hus-
band, you need to immediately cut all physical ties. You're short changing
yourself by giving him your body because it's obvious he didn't respect you as
a wife and won't respect you as a homey lover friend. Learn from your mis-
takes and if you must have a man, be a better judge of character and find one
that will respect you more than your husband and keep it moving.

S The Art of Dating
by Justin L. Mabrie, MBA
The Lost Key

People often leave relationships with a
sense of void as if missing a part of them-
selves, That missing part is something that
they gained while with that person but lost
once the relationship ended. When you are
in a relationship there are often unspoken
attachments that are gained and created
through emotions exchanged and experi-
ences shared. Even though the relationship
may have ended, it takes time to replace or
regain the missing link to your life satisfac-
tion. We will refer to this as the lost key: because a key, in theory, is used for
the security of items we hold dear and find to be of much meaning to us. In
the same sense, a lost key can represent the absence of the feeling you gained
when you knew you were going have a great conversation at dinner with
your date, the gratification you felt from a routine good-morning / good-
night call, or simply the embrace of your arms interlocking with that special
someone. The lost key can also be a part of you that became dependent of
your significant partner at that time. For instance, you may have become
dependent on him or her to be strong in your moments of weakness and now
feel alone and helpless in the same situations without him or her. The most
important part of dealing with a lost key is the recognition and acceptance
of that void. Do not cover up or hide from the feelings that are attached to
your lost key. Once you have identified this lost key, you must consider if it
can be regained or was that one of the luxuries that only came in the pack-
age of your last relationship. Sometimes there are substitutes for your lost
key that provide you with the same emotions gained to complete your feel-
ings of contentment and satisfaction. You do not want to carry over resent-
ment to your next dating partner because he or she does not fill that void the
same exact way. People are not here to fill your void, rather they are in your
life to complement and provide unique sensations and experiences personal-
ized from him or her to you. Accepting lost keys in your life is a reality of
dating in today's world. Do not put up generic walls that closeout and shield
your partner from connecting with your inner emotions and thoughts.
Instead, allow the development of a new lock that will require a different set
of keys. Each key opens a different part of you in a different way each time
a new person enters your life. If time spent decreases and the dating adven-
ture with that person is exhausted, allow those keys to stay in that relation-
ship.

Remember: Starting anew requires a refreshed outlook. Lost keys rep-
resent an old way of access that are not for storage.

Health Notes
Weight-Reducing Quackery

m a DEFINITION: Advertised dietless reducing meth-
ods are on the increase since many persons think that
these reducing methods are extremely attractive. The
overweight person is assured that by taking a few
pills he will be able to lose weight and still eat all that
he wants. Dietless reducing methods may be
extremely harmful to persons with diabetes or condi-
tions affecting the heart, liver, and thyroid, particular-
ly since the customer is not encouraged to have a complete medical examination
before starting the diet. Often advertised are the physical culturists who have
weight-reducing cures. Many of these reducing methods have been proved
worthless and misleading by the American Medical Association.
QUACKERY ITEMS: Modem weight-reducing quackery may include special
massage, beauty ointments, and various mechanical devices. Large sums of
money are wasted each year by Americans on ineffective diet preparations and
devices.
DIET PILLS: Each year Americans spend from a quarter to a half billion dol-
lars on diet pills. When diet pills are dispensed excessively, they can become
toxic, even fatal. Diet pills may be amphetamines which decrease the appetite,
barbiturates which reduce the nervousness caused by the amphetamines, thyroid
which increases the rate the human body bums food, diuretics which drain fluids
from the human body, and laxatives.

For the first time in FIFA World Cup history, the game will be hosted by an African
as South Africa beat out many nations to host the big tournament.
The FIFA World Cup, also called Football World Cup or Soccer World Cup, is con-
sidered soccer's biggest tournament. The FIFA World Cup is an international asso-
ciation football competition for all men's national soccer teams. The championship
has a very rich history. The first FIFA game took place in 1930 and with an excep-
tion in 1942 and 1946, the tournament has been going on strong.
The current format of the FIFA World Cup has 32 teams competing for the title
of soccer's best team. Some of that qualified include the United States of America,
Nigeria, Brazil and Italy. Since South Africa is hosting the tournament, South
Africa's soccer team is automatically in the FIFA World Cup. The teams will be
competing over a month in South Africa. There are two stages: The group stage and
the. knockout stage. In the group stage teams compete within eight groups of four
teams each. Depending on how well the teams did in current Wolrd Cups and FIFA
World Rankings, 8 teams are selected and put into a separate group.Other teams are
selected into different sections based on geographical criteria and are drawn by ran-
dom to the 8 groups. During thegroup stage, the teams will play at least 3 games and
the top two teams will advance to the knock out round. The knockout round consists
of a single-elimination tournament. From there the quarterfinals, semi-finals, third
place game, and the finals follow.
The FIFA World Cup Will is one of the largest watch sporting event with an esti-
mated 715.1 million people watching the last FIFA World Cup in 2006. Italy's men's
soccer team currently hold the 2006 title and holds four FIFA World Cup titles.
Brazil's men's soccer team holds the most FIFA titles with five FIFA trophies.
Uruguay, England, France Germany and Argentina also have claims to at least one
FIFA title.
The first game starts June 11 with South Africa vs on Mexico and Uruguay vs
France on ESPN. The Final Game is July 11 on ABC.


Greg Jones is back

By Jordan Hill

Greg Jones, full back for the Jacksonville Jaguars returned to the field to par-
ticipate in team workouts and activities June 7.
This is the first time Jones has been able to attend workouts and sched-
uled events with the team since his injury he sustained during a game last
December.
Jones, no stranger to injuries, said he was just happy to be back on the
field. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament in 2004 at Florida State University
before he was drafted into the NFL.. In 2006, he tore his ACL.
His latest injury was during a game agonist the Dolphins in December
when a Miami defender ran into Jones' leg and injured his ankle.
Jones is not going to focus on another injury.
"I know I'm tough. I've battled through injuries in the past. If something is bro-
ken, it's got to get fixed. That's how I look at it," he said.

By Marsha Dean Phelts


The Jacksonville Center for the Arts held a grand opening
recently in their new location at, 3674 Beach Boulevard, 904-355-
5551. That an arts program of this magnitude offered at the
Jacksonville Center for the Arts is due to the fulfillment of a lifelong
dream realized by its founder and Executive Director, Kezia Rolle.
She is the wife of Wade Rolle, and mother of three, but to students
who mentor and adore her, she is lovingly called Miss Kezia.
The entire Rolle family is involved in the Center. Husband
Wade, a local attorney takes time out after office hours and is a seri-
ous student in the acting program. Their daughters, Kaila and Nadia
are dancers and models, the baby of the family, Dylan maintains a
modeling position smile. A Jacksonville native, Kezia has been
dancing since she was six-years old. On a family Caribbean cruise,
Kezia's parents Thomas and Kate Hendrix discovered that their
daughter could sing when she won the $25.00 prize in the ship's
"Gong Show" at 10 years-old. She graduated from St. Pius Catholic
School, Douglass Anderson and Jacksonville University and double
majored in high school and college in voice and dance. Next she
found herself working as Barbie at Disney and numerous other char-
acters singing and dancing. This includes Super Bowl and National
Basked Ball performances. Kezia has been on countless runways as
a model for major names in fashion and design. After a glamorous
career as a model and entertainer traveling to dream locations Miss
Kezia came home and opened a dance school in 1997.
This venture has grown into a talent bank for students of all ages.
The spacious Center houses three dance studios with specially built
"sprung dance floors" that help give protection to dancer's knees
and ankles. A sprung floor absorbs shocks, these floors are consid-
ered the best available for dance. These floors enhance performance
and greatly reduce injuries. The Ballet Barres (dance bars) that line
the studio walls are very special to Miss Kezia, they have been in
her studios at FAMCO on Lem Turner and at space they rented from
Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church on Pearl Street, now they are
at home in the Jacksonville Center for the Arts very own building on
Beach Boulevard. Thirteen years ago Miss Kezia was excited about
buying Ballet Barres her first dance teacher, Donna Freburg's upon
Mrs. Freburg's retirement. These barres are even older than Miss
Kezia.
Miss Kezia teaches dance to the 3-6-years old and to the Pre-
Professional Dancers. The young dancers are picking up French
terms and expressions along the way for French is the language spo-
ken in ballet. When the young dancers are instructed to do an
Arabesque, they extend their leg and point the toe behind. As a
Tendu is called out they lift up on pointed toes. When a Bourre is
asked for the dancers know to make a fluttering of tiny steps on their
toes. In the Premiere Position, both heels are together while the toes
are pointed out sideways. All the while classes are taking place in
the three dance studios, the dancers gracefully move with pleasing
attitudes as they focus on their steps.
This summer there is a lot more to the Jacksonville Center
for the Arts than dance lessons. Students come from all over the first
coast from Georgia to St. Augustine for instructions in acting, dance,
modeling, photo art, Piano, and Violin. The experienced profession-
al staff includes the most talented instructors in their craft. They
teach from the styles of the Alvin Ailey School and Martha Graham
Ballet. As plans were being made for the renovation of the new stu-
dio, Mr. Tracy Inman, most renown as Co-Director of the Junior
Division at the Alvin Ailey School visited Jacksonville. Mr. Inman
taught several classes in Modern Dance while in the city and made
recommendations that were utilized in getting the new dance studios
set up. As the results of the talent found at the Center eight of the
Center's students have been accepted in the Alvin Ailey American
Dance Theatre Summer Intensive Program.
There is an equally full schedule of the arts beginning at ages
5-and up. Miss Kezia and choreographer, Savery Morgan a gradu-
ate of Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and member of the
Dance Theatre of Harlem, will instruct summer participants locally
in the Morgan-Cooper Dance Camp. Other full day summer class-
es offered are Pint-Click-Magic, instructed by Donnell Bennett,
Taste of the Arts, Kidz Art Camp, Super Model Camp and Broadway
Bound, instructed by Lisa Carlson. The Summer Camps operate
from June 14 through August 13. Register for Summer Camp by
calling 904-322-7672 or 904-355-5551.
