Stopping the Violence


Through A Carwash


The workers were there,
on time and ready as citi-
zens around Jacksonville
lined up for the grand
opening Saturday of
Transformations Car Wash.
Yes, it was surprising to
see so many present, but
not totally.
Transformations Car Wash
has been started by Pastor
Rev. Mark Griffin of
Wayman Ministries.
Pastor Griffin and hi's
membership recognized
the problems many in their
community were experi-
encing because of the mis-


takes they had made earlier in life.
The establishment of Transformation Car Wash stemmed from Pastor Griffin hear-
ing so many men explaining why they were unemployed. As a certified public
account, Griffin started the carwash with ten uniformed workers, and the hope of
expanding as business grows. Each car washer is to work for at least six months,
while learning customer service and team-working skills that will be beneficial for
them as they prove themselves and remain in the community as an honor citizen. Dr.
Griffin plans to help more as he grows, opening a lawn care service and maybe a
restaurant. One thing for sure, such an operation will decrease criminal recidivism,
and that is Pastor Griffin and Wayman Ministries' goal.

Many are asking, What is "Juneteenth?"
From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the
African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and
beyond.
Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education
and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with cele-
brations, guest speakers, picnics and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and
rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement and for planning the future.

Supreme Court Rules Against Myrtle Beach
Helmet Law
The South Carolina Supreme
Court ruled Tuesday that Myrtle
Beach's motorcycle helmet law is
invalid because it is superseded by
state law, The court further ruled
that all the ordinances -- 2008-61-
87 were affected by the repeal of
.the administrative court hearing,
but since 61 and 65, the rules
about parking trailers on city
Streets and partying in parking
lots, were made into misdemeanors, those are not invalid.
When the National Black Riders visited Myrtle Beach last month, many of the rid-
ers received violations. The city's objectivewas to keep the bikers outside of their
city limits because residents had complained that the bikers were too noisy.
This year, there were fewer riders participating in the conference.

A March on Washington August 28, 2010
It was on August 28, 1963 when
Dr. Martin Luther King spoke at the

and the Tea Party members have
decided to have a march on
Washington, DC on August 28, 2010.
Their march is: The American People

The group expect three million min-

calling, "The Second American
Revolution and have already reserved Lincoln Memorial. They claim their march is
as important or possibly more important than the march held in 1963 where blacks
were fighting for equal rights. They say they are marching to 'take back the
American government. What puzzles most is that in the early 2000, the people had
little to say, they accepted what was given, including the war in Iraq.

Juneteenth and Society

In the early years, little interest existed outside the African American community in partici-
pation in the celebrations. In some cases, there was outwardly exhibited resistance by barring
the use of public property for the festivities. Most of the festivities found themselves out in
rural areas around rivers and creeks that could provide for additional activities such as fish-
ing, horseback riding and barbecues. Often the church grounds was the site for such activities.
Eventually, as African Americans became land owners, land was donated and dedicated for
these festivities. One of the earliest documented land purchases in the name of Juneteenth was
organized by Rev. Jack Yates. This fund-raising effort yielded $1000 and the purchase of
Emancipation Park in Houston, Texas. In Mexia, the local Juneteenth organization purchased
Booker T. Washington Park, which had become the Juneteenth celebration site in 1898. There
are accounts of Juneteenth activities being interrupted and halted by white landowners
demanding that their laborers return to work. However, it seems most allowed their work-
ers the day off and some even made donations of food and money. For decades
*these annual celebrations flourished, growing continuously with each passing year. In
Booker T. Washington Park, as many as 20,000 African Americans once flowed
through during the course of a week, making the celebration one of the state's largest.

Through the efforts of Al Edwards, an African AmericanTexas state legislator. The successful
passage of this bill marked Juneteenth as the first emancipation celebration granted official
state recognition. Edwards has since actively sought to spread the observance of Juneteenth
all across America.

Juneteenth In Modern Times

Today, Juneteenth is enjoying a phenomenal growth rate within communities and organiza-
tions throughout the country and celebrates African American freedom and achievement.
encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures. Today, a national
day of pride is growing. Juneteenth.com

JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION THE HISTORY

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to
1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with
news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President
Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had lit-
tle impact on the Texans due td the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with
the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger's regiment, the forces were finally strong
enough to influence and overcome the resistance.
Later attempts to explain this two and a half year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions
that have been handed down through the years. Often told is the story of a messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas
with the news of freedom. Another, is that the news was deliberately withheld by the enslavers to maintain the labor force
on the plantations. And still another, is that federal troops actually waited for the slave owners to reap the benefits of one
last cotton harvest before going to Texas to enforce the'Emancipation Proclamation. All of which, or neither of these ver-
sion could be true. Certainly, for some, President Lincoln's authority over the rebellious states was in question For what-
ever the reasons, conditions in Texas remained status quo well beyond what was statutory.

General Order Number 3

One of General Granger's first orders of business was to read to the people of Texas, General Order Number 3 which began
most significantly with:
"The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all
slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights arid rights of property between former masters and slaves, and
the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and free laborer."
The reactions to this profound news ranged from pure shock to immediate jubilation. While many lingered to learn of this
new employer to employee relationship, many left before these offers were completely off the lips of their former 'master-
s' attesting to the varying conditions on the plantations and the realization of freedom. Even with nowhere to go, many felt
that leaving the plantation would be their first grasp of freedom. North was a logical destination and for many it represent-
ed true freedom, while the desire to reach family members in neighboring states drove the some into Louisiana, Arkansas
and Oklahoma. Settling into these new areas as free men and women brought on new realities and the challenges of estab-
lishing a heretofore non-existent status for black people in America. Recounting the memories of that great day in June of
1865 and its festivities would serve as motivation as well as a release from the growing pressures encountered in their new
territory. The celebration of June 19th was coined "Juneteenth" and grew with more participation from descendants. The
Juneteenth celebration was a time for reassuring each other, for praying and for gathering remaining family members.
Juneteenth continued to be highly revered in Texas decades later, with many former slaves and descendants making an annu-
al pilgrimage back to Galveston on this date.

Juneteenth Festivities and Food

A range of activities were provided to entertain the masses, many of which continue in tradition today. Rodeos, fishing, bar-
becuing and baseball are just a few of the typical Juneteenth activities you may witness today. Juneteenth almost always
focused on education and self improvement. Thus, often guest speakers are brought in and the elders are called upon to
recount the events of the past. Prayer services were also a major part of these celebrations.
Certain foods became popular and subsequently synonymous with Juneteenth celebrations such as strawberry soda-pop.
More traditional and just as popular was the barbecuing, through which Juneteenth participants could share in the spirit and
aromas that their ancestors the newly emancipated African Americans, would have experienced during their ceremonies.
Hence, the barbecue pit is often established as the center of attention at Juneteenth celebrations.
Food was abundant because everyone prepared a special dish. Meats such as lamb, pork and beef which not available
everyday were brought on this special occasion. A true Juneteenth celebrations left visitors
well satisfied and with enough conversation to last until the next.
Dress was also an important element in early Juneteenth customs and is often still taken seri-
ously, particularly by the direct descendants who can make the connection to this tradition's
a k I roots. During slavery there were laws on the books in many areas that prohibited or limited
the dressing of the enslaved. During the initial days of the emancipation celebrations, there are
accounts of former slaves tossing their ragged garments into the creeks and rivers to adorn
; io clothing taken from the plantations belonging to their former 'masters'.

* A Tribute to Father's Day *


My Daddy
My Daddy is a mountain
My Daddy is a sea
My Daddy smiles again and again
I love my Daddy
And I know he loves me
'cause my Daddy is a ray of lite
that warms a winters' eve
My daddy is very special to me
I could not live without my daddy
as he could not live without me.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
WITH SPECIAL LOVE
OUR FATHER/HUSBAND















WARREN TYRONE ALSTON
Fel. 12, 1950 Feb. 25, 2010

Dear Father/Husband,
Our hugs and kisses come from a distance, but our
Love is always near. We are so grateful that memories
are priceless possessions that time can never destroy, for
it is in happy remembrance the heart finds its greatest
joy. You are as precious to us as we are to you and
knowing that your memories will be forever is even
more comforting. There is not a day that goes by that
you are included in our daily thoughts and words. We
Love you Dad/Husband so intensively and praying that
you are carefully being watched over.

When we feel still and very empty
We try to turn our thoughts to prayer,
A little light turns on inside
And suddenly Our God is there.
Ourdoubts come from their stony places,
He turns each one into a flower,
Our hearts get into heaven's gate,
We're linked again with Him in Prayer.

Your loving family, Freida, Shondalyn & Warren
(Airryon) Alston


He's been there for me through all the conflicts
helping me over the rough, ragged stones of
growing up.
My respect for him is unending,
faith is unbound, and love is unquestioning.
Even in the midst of all my imperfections,
he is lenient, ignoring the pitfalls, the downfalls,
the shortcomings,
he just accepted me as I was, as I am.
The sheer purity of it leaves me awe-struck
and it lifts me up, it holds my head a little higher,
it keeps me in balance,
harmonizing with the world around me
beautifully, like an inspired masterpiece from the
soul of an honest man.
I am honored to know him, to love him,
to be of him.
He's my hero, and I am his daughter, his little girl.



A Father Is:
There in every memory
See his love and care
Strength and hands to count on
Freely he does share
Provider, toil so faithfully
To make our dreams come true
Give strong and tender discipline
Though it is hard to do
A Father is God's chosen one
To lead the family
And point it to His will for life
Of love and harmony...
Sue Skeen



Happy Fathers Day
Happy Fathers Day
Happy Fathers day means more
than have a happy day
It means i love you first of all
Then thanks for all you do
It means you mean a lot to me
and that I honor you.

Daddy's Girl
When you were young, pony-tailed,
face full of playful smiles,
were you a daddy's girl?
I was. I still am.
Did you look to him for your security,
for love and attention,
for the understanding, and the patience you
lacked as a child?
My daddy was the center of my small world,
the focus of my affections,
the star that lit my life, shining bright.
Shining still in my heart.
The years have led me here,
weathered with maturity and responsibilities,
and I see more clearly now.
The hardships, burdens of love,
and all the small sacrifices he made for me,
for our family.
He created stability, a place to call home.
All the photographs I browse through
of a child long forgotten, scarcely remembered
smiling, so happy and so loved.
The mere thought of becoming that role model
is enough to send me cowering, afraid...
looking for guidance.
Turning to my father and my more for support,
advice, wise counsel, and for approval.
Grown up, I see differently now...:
A new perspective of a man I have always known.
My heart is full, my emotions overpowering
just in the certainty of that bond.

TARAJI P. HENSON

SAVORS HER CHINESE EXPERIENCE!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/FEEDBACKRYCHO@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTO BY JOHN RISSO


She had just landed at LAX (Los Angeles) and
was still reeling from jet lag but called me despite her
fatigue just like she said she would for this interview.
When I asked what part of the world she was calling
from, she answered in the sweetest voice "LA.!" This
is one successful actress who hasn't gone "Hollywood"
in her head, is regular folks and will keep her word
when she makes a commitment. In her latest film; gor-
geous, sexy, Oscar nominated actress Taraji P.
Henson plays the mother of new comer young actor
Jaden Smith in The Karate Kid. Yes the movie is a re-
make of the 1984 original Karate Kid and yes Jaden is
the son of Will and Jada Smith. Henson plays Sherry
Parker who leaves Detroit and relocates to Beijing,
China with her son Dre. He quickly falls victim to a
local bully and his thug crew who know karate. Things
turn out for the better when Mr. Han, the maintenance
man for Dre's apartment building, played by Jackie
Chan, takes him under his wing and teaches him Kung-
Fu.
In congratulating Henson on her new film
which had a #1 opening weekend with a whopping 56
million dollar box office gross, she humbly thanked me
and said, "Everybody loves a feel good movie." The
film was shot on location in Beijing, China. The cine-
matography in the film was absolutely breathtakingly
stunning in terms of showcasing the Chinese country
side, mountains and beautiful lakes. What was
Henson's impression of the country? She exclaims, "It


was a beautiful place. The historical buildings were
gorgeous; the great wall was nothing like you've ever
seen before. And the people it's crowded! It's like
seventeen million people there (in Beijing) so it's real-
ly crowed but the. people are great. They are good bar-
gainers, I'll tell you that much. They are good people."


Was Henson adventurous in terms of eating and
drinking at the local offerings? She smiles, "I went to a
local Beijing restatirant because I wanted to eat the
local Beijing' food and I got sick. I did it twice and
knew I was going to get sick, that's how good it was.
What about souvenirs? Henson replied, "I brought a tea
table back and I'm in love with tea now. I have a new
found love for tea." Since the film was based around
the martial arts, did Henson find a new love for that as
well? She is quick to snap, "No I did not!"
A largely Chinese crew was used to shoot the
film and translators were on hand to see that communi-
cation went smooth. Is there psychological pressure on
the director and cast to top a re-make film? Henson
says, "Absolutely! Especially if the original was a hit!
You don't want to defame a hit. You don't want to be
the clunker and have everybody ask why did they even
do that? They just should have left it alone." Since
Jaden's mom Jada was on the set as one of the film's
producers, did she coach Henson on her son or did she
let them jell together on their own? Henson turns on the
charm, "She let us do it on our own. We just had gen-
eral mother to mother conversations and we have the
same ideals. So Jaden felt comfortable and would say
'that sounds like something my mother would say.'"
The on screen mother and son relationship comes off
flawless and as real as it gets!

Davis both won Tony Awards last Sunday
night for their roles in the revival produc-

Zhao Yi. Directed by Harald Zwart.
Screenplay by Chris Murphy. Story by


Robert Mark Kamen. Produced by Jerry
Weintraub, James Lassiter, Will Smith,
Jada Pinkett Smith and Ken Stovitz.
Creaming the competition on its opening
weekend as the 1# box office hit at 56 mil-
lion, not only tells you something about
the mass appeal of this movie but also that
the Will Smith box office magic has been
handed down to the next generation in the
Smith family!
This is a re-make of the 1984 clas-
sic by the same title. Dre Parker (Smith)
becomes the object of the neighborhood
and school bully and his crew. After being
on the receiving end of a couple of "A"
kicking, Parker is taught kung-fu by Mr.
Han (Chan) the maintenance man who
sees after his building. Young Smith is
very likable, convincingly believable and
the girls will adore him in this film. Chan
is the perfect mentor personality for his
role and never overshadows Smith. Of
course, what can go to wrong when your
momma is sexy fine, Oscar nominated
Taraji P. Henson. The movie keeps your
attention throughout and is 2 '/2 hours
long. The beautiful Chinese scenery is
breath taking!
The A-Team; 20th Century Fox
Pictures; Starring Liam Neeson, Bradley
Cooper, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson,
Sharlto Copley, Jessica Biel, Patrick

Show re-make into a feature film. If you
were a fan of the show (1983 1987)
you'll love this movie. The action, sus-
pense and story line are very entertaining.

Talking To An Attorney


By Burney Bivens, Esq. LFD
FINANCIAL CONSEQUENCES OF LOSING A BREAD WINNER
From time to time, many of you may have considered the cost of burying a loved, one.
Depending on the type of service and merchandise that one selects, the cost can vary.
However, experience has shown that the funerals and burials are not cheap and therefore
some form of preplanning and perhaps some form of insurance protection may be helpful
to lessen the burden when that time comes. However, the real financial consequence of los-
ing a loved one comes after the burial, especially when the loved one was a financial con-
tributor to the household.
This article will discuss some actual cases to demonstrate why some form of proper plan-
ning is important. In many households, there are two people working and the family's
lifestyle and expenses depend on the income of both of them. If no proper plans are in
place, a financial consequence of death can be severe. If you are married, in the absence of
major tragedy, one of you will end up single.
Case one: A 74 year old man recently died leaving a spouse. They enjoyed a good
lifestyle. He was retired from the military with 20 years of service. At the time of his retire-
ment he still had 8 children at home and therefore did not select survivor's benefits which
would have reduced the amount of his military retirement. After he retired from the mili-
tary at the age of 38 he then worked 27 years for a private company and retired from that
job drawing a pension beginning at the age of 65. There were no survivor's benefits asso-
ciated with that pension. He also began collecting Social Security benefits at age 65. The
decedent's spouse was also retired collecting a pension and was also collecting her Social
Security benefits. With an elderly couple and 5 sources of income they enjoyed a good
lifestyle until he died. The household lost the military retirement check, lost his pension
from his private employer and his Social Security check. As you can see the household
went from 5 sources of income to only 2. The household expenses were essentially the
same. Result: 2 adult children had to move back home with their mother so that she could
make ends meet.
Case two: A married couple had a nice home out in the country on 2 acres of land. The
home had no mortgage and the only thing they owed every year was taxes, insurance, main-
tenance and upkeep. Because the husband enjoyed good employment, his wife was not
required to work. When he retired he took a lump sum retirement and bought an annuity
which established a stream of income for him and his wife. At age 65 he also began col-
lecting his Social Security benefits. At age 66 he died. The Wife then collected his Social
Security benefits and continued to receive the stream of income from the annuity. But there
was a problem. Either she lived too long or they did not have enough money in the annu-
ity. Eventually the annuity was completely depleted and the only thing she had left was the
deceased's husband's Social Security benefits. Clearly their lifestyle and their budget after
retirement were based on both sources of income, the annuity and Social Security. With the
annuity having been depleted, the husband's Social Security benefit was not enough to pay
the taxes, insurance, maintenance and upkeep on the house, let alone the wife's personal
expenses of groceries, utilities, automobile insurance as well as maintenance and upkeep.
In this case there were no adult children to move back home and she had to sell her lovely
home out in the country.
There are different types of plans that one can make to avoid these types of consequences.
However, it is important to plan early. Another common mistake that people make is fail-
ure to plan for a burial, when we all know that death is certain. Even in those cases where
people have life insurance, they often utilize it to pay for burial. They could have had an
opportunity to utilize the life insurance toward income replacement for the support of the
survivors if they had purchased some form of burial insurance. It is never too early. In
order to avoid these difficult consequences of losing your loved one, it may be important to
sit down with a financial planner, determine what, your long term goals are, and develop a
plan to achieve those goals.

Stork's Nest Promotes Healthy Babies


Recently, the Stork's Nest Committee and the members of Eta Gamma Zeta
Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. hosted the first "Blue and White Baby
Shower" event in the Brunswick Second Presbyterian Church annex building locat-
ed at the comer of Albany and I Streets. Over twenty-five sorority members donated
more than one hundred baby care items to two local daycare facilities in response to
a wish list survey conducted by Stork's Nest Committee members. The recipients for
this first community shower event were Mrs. Mary Baker, owner and director, of
Early Learners Daycare and Mrs. Juanita Campbell, owner and director, of Bridge To
Learning Daycare. Also, present was Ms. Tonalisa Lavant, Director of the Child Care
Division from the Department of Family and Children Services. The daycare facili-
ty directors were presented with "requested" items such as baby diapers, baby wipes,
wash cloths, onesies, bibs, blankets, hats, bottles, and a bottle warmer as well as an
assortment of other needed child care items for use in their respective centers.
At present, the Eta Gamma Zeta Chapter is revitalizing a Stork's Nest Program
in the Brunswick community for September 2010. The chapter operated a local pro-
gram intermittently from 1983 through 2000. This service-oriented organization has
sensed a need in this community and hopes that the Blue and White Baby Shower
will not only help these two daycare facilities, but also select others as needed. The
goal for this event is to develop and maintain cooperative communicative relation-
. ships with a variety of resources, providers agencies and clients so that component
parts of the Stork's Nest Program will work in Brunswick.
The Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is a national service-oriented organization that
operates the Stork's Nest Program as a national service project in cooperation with
the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation. The incentive-based program is non-
profit and designed to first trimester of pregnancy so that more babies will get a
healthy start in life. The education component consists of seven sessions which
address topics such as nutrition, genetics, smoking, stress and illness, preparation for
birth and parenting skills. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the
incidence of low-birth weights, birth defects, and infant mortality is Storks Nest

Some people have said The Gantt Report is to -
editorial writing what N.W. A was to Hip Hop
music. If you know what N.W.A. stands for, you
would know the group members had a little
gangster in them.
Well, gangsters are in the "hood" and The
Gantt Report does write about activities in
Black communities. Perhaps The Gantt Report
is "gangster" compared to the milk sugar,
watered down, boot-licking, hat-in-hand
columns penned by many other Black opinion
writers.
And don't forget, both N.W.A. and The Gantt
Report have both made comments about pimps
and whores! We did, however, mention those
persons in different context and for different reasons.
One obvious difference between us is at least two of the gangster rappers are
rich and very famous. The Gantt Report is merely infamous but widely read
anyway.
Dr. Dre and Ice Cube are two former N.W. A members that are now multi-
millionaires. Dre was named "Best Hip Hop Producer of All Time" recently and
Cube has many successful movies and his own TV show on a big cable network.
Dre and Cube deal with millionaires everyday but The Gantt Report deals
with billionaires. I don't have a million or a billion but I do have a brain and I
know that being on the right scene can sometimes result in something special.
One percent of a billion dollars can have you set for life.
Even a wretch like me can be a big dog one day. Biblically speaking,, some-
times the dogs eat what the master eats.
In Mark, Seventh Chapter, the Bible says a Greek woman comes up to Jesus
and asks him to get the devil out of her daughter.
Jesus, a Jew, was meeting with Jews and didn't want to deal with the non-
Jewish woman. Jesus told the woman:
"Let the children first be filled for it is not meet to take the children's bread,
and cast it unto the dogs.'
The woman replied:
"Yes, Lord: Yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs."
If you sit at the economic dinner table every day with billionaires, one day
a crumb from the table will fall your way!
You can be a "dog", a gangster, you can be jobless, you can be homeless, you
can be disabled or anything else and still be able to survive and progress if you
do things right and treat people right.
Millionaires and billionaires don't care what kind of raps you rap or what
kind of Black newspaper columns you write, millionaires and billionaires want
to know if you can make them more millions and billions!
That is the reason why talents like Dr. Dre and Ice Cube can be "gangsters"
and still be recognized and successful in the business world.
You can't be scared and get rich! If you're scared of money, stay away from
people that make a lot of it! The Gantt Report "ain't never scared"!
If you want to be a gangster, be a gangster for the people. Love God, love
your neighbors and love yourself! (Become a fan of Tlhe Gantt Report on

Stages of a Break-up
Everyone searches for a quick and easy
book of guidelines to aid in a break-up.
The truth is: there is not such a book. If
the relationship was full of complexities
and heartache during good times, it only
makes sense that a break-up would be
equally complicated. When one finally
decides a breakup is on the horizon, he or
she must realize that the partner will go
through stages before the break up is com-
plete.
Shock: Even if a break-up has been in a discussion topic for a while, no
one in the relationship has a true desire to leave the other person. Each part-
ner still has hope that the battling issue will either heal itself or disappear for
the greater good. There is always an assumption that love will prevail. That
being said, no one in the relationship is expecting a definite break up. When
the person actually follows his or her intuition and begins acting out the
break-up process, the other person will be in a state of SHOCK.
Denial: Once the person is out of shock and he or she is able to realize
what has just happened, he or she will not want to accept it. At this point,
the partner will act like things are still the same between the two of you. He
or she will continue with the texts, calls, and routine behavior.The expecta-
tions they had before will remain. You have been contemplating a break-up
for a while so this type of behavior may appear immature to you at the time,
however the partner can not help him or herself because he or she is not
choosing to accept what has happened, and is temporarily in DENIAL.
Acceptance: After the partner realizes that you are serious about the
break-up and are not dealing with them with 'usual' behavior; they accept
the fact that this has just happened. "You really just broke up with me... and
you are for real this time." At this point, he or she will attempt to figure out
how they are going to fix this problem.
"F keYou": They will question Do they even want to fix the problem?
Maybe they are over you too? Maybe we should take a break?
You'Somewhere in the acceptance stage, the partner will have some internal
dialogue with themselves, which will get them very heated. He or she will
start to realize that they been doing ALL this stuff to prevent this break up
but that you have decided to break-up for real this time. You will probably
receive storybook text, hate. voicemail, and in-person curse out sessions.
Most likely the person is sincerely hurt during this time and he or she is
releasing their anger with the person who should be most able to closely
identify with their feelings (which is you because you were the other person
in the relationship). During this stage the person is possibly feeling guilt,
pain, and strong discontent about being on the receiving end of being
dropped and broken up with... which will equate to thoughts of 'F. -
YOU'... "I don't need you in my life anymore."
Last Plea/Cry: Break-ups sometimes ignite ambiguous feelings that con-
fuse both parties involved. This stage could come before or after the 'F
You' stage. Even though the partner is truly upset with you, he or she still
wants to be with you because this break-up was not their idea and they have
not had time to weigh their options outside of being in a relationship. This
'cry' is for the partner to remember the good times and all the work the two
of you have put into creating such a meaningful relationship. It is a plea
with intent to bring empathetic feelings to pick up the pieces and try again.
Moving On: There comes a point when somebody is done trying to con-
vince somebody to be with them. This stage may come sooner if there is
already somebody in-waiting or if he or she just happens to meet someone,
who like a new breath of fresh air enjoys their company. The person will
now MOVE ON.

Remember: These stages have no distinct time duration. Consideration
of emotions should exist.

"Health Notes"

OVERWEIGHT

GENERAL INFORMATION

DEFINITION: No more than 5 percent of the per-
sous overweight have a glandular malfunction.
Approximately 95 percent of overweight persons
are overweight because of overeating and inactivity. Of the two, overeating is the
more common cause. Overweight is strictly an individual problem. Some of the
reasons for overeating include loneliness, discontentment, boredom, compensa-
tion for failures in social and occupational contacts, family customs, eating the
same amount of food when activities are restricted as when they are strenuous,
and eating between meals.
OVERWEIGHT DISADVANTAGES: Some of the many disadvantages of being
overweight are difficulty in getting about, embarrassment, lessened muscular
activity, lack of ambition, sensitivity to ridicule, possibility of degenerative con-
ditions, and shorter life expectancy. However, an overweight person should not
consider a weight reduction plan before he has a consultation with and is exam-
ined by his family physician. After a thorough medical examination, the family
physician probably will want to give a basal metabolism test and complete cer-
tain laboratory tests. The physician probably will prescribe a reducing diet. In
addition, the physician probably will prescribe daily vigorous exercise.
LOW CALORIE FOODS: Some of the low-calorie foods usually recommended
by physicians are clear soups, skimmed milk, fresh fruits, leafy green and yellow
vegetables, lean meats, eggs, and soft cheeses. Foods that make one feel satis-
fied at the end of a meal must also be included in an effective weight-reducing
daily diet. Green vegetables, fluids, foods requiring chewing, and fruits will pro-
vide this satisfaction.

From Actual Police Reports

Did You Hear About?...











On May 21, 2010 at 4:00am
m- y police were dispatched to 7905
e' iDevoe Street in reference to a
robbery to an individual. Upon
arrival, the victim stated he was
working at the intersection of
Chaffee Road, and Crystal
Springs Road when an unknown
Suspect approached his vehicle
n. from behind, and put the hood
up. He stated the su...spect asked
to use his phone because he was
having car trouble. He stated he
told the suspect that he could not
use his phone because it was a
two-way radio. He stated when
he looked up; the suspect had a
chrome/silver gun, possibly a .25 caliber, pointed at his face and stated, "Yo dog,
gimme your money". The victim gave the suspect $11, and the victim drove off.
The victim described the suspect as a younger white male, wearing all cam-
ouflage clothing.
This picture is from surveillance video from a store near by.
Anyone with any information as to the identity of this individual or knows
his whereabouts is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-
0500 or email us at JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and
receive a possible reward, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS or e-mail
them at rewards@fccrimestoppers.com.

Patrol was dispatched to 8899 W. Beaver Street in reference to an audible
burglar alarm to a Vystar ATM, in the shopping center at 8299 W. Beaver Street and
is situated south of the Food Lion Store. Patrol... arrived at the scene and saw that
the exterior lighting and the digital screen were dark as if the power was out to the
unit. Patrol went to the rear of the ATM where the entry/exit service door is locat-
ed. Above the door, they saw that an air conditioning unit had been removed. The
air conditioner unit was not outside the ATM. They noticed a black Chevrolet pick-
up truck park behind the Autozone and found it was unlocked and the hood was
warm. They used their patrol car as a ladder, pulled the car to the door so they could
look inside the unit. Theywere not able to look inside it however, they noticed a
distinct smell, that of body odor coming from inside the ATM. JFRD responded
with a ladder to get a better look inside. The officers went up the ladder, the door
to the ATM started to open and inside the ATM were two suspects, Charles Abbey
(18 years old, 8154 Oregon Street) and Michael Craft (20 years old, 851 Center
Street). The suspects were handcuffed and detained and a pair of wire cutters were
found on suspect Craft. Suspect Abbey was in possession of a green JEA locking
tab used on electric meters and two drill bits in his right front pocket. Both suspects
admitted to the incident. Their Chevrolet pick-up was seized for forfeiture. Both
suspects were transported to the Duval County Jail without incident. GREAT JOB
OFFICERS!
Two Weekend Shootings In Seperate Incidents
On June 13, 2010, at 2:35pm police responded to 1214 Labelle Street
(Eureka Gardens Apartments), in reference to a victim being shot and deceased at
the scene. Subsequent investigation revealed a possible suspect may be located in
a nearby apartment. SWAT was called out and after entry was made. It was deter-
mined nobody was inside the apartment. SWAT callout ended peacefully. This is an
active ongoing investigation and no arrests have been made.
Also on Sunday, June 14, 2010, at 2:10pm police, responded to 5681
Edenfield Road (Sundance Point Apartments) in reference to a person being shot.
The victim was transported to a local hospital in life threatening condition. This
is an active ongoing investigation and no arrests
have been made.


One Of The Two Men
Arrested
Terry Lee Smith, 19, was arrested
Wednesday evening. An arrest report was not
available, but the Putnam County jail website
said Smith was processed in the evening and
remained in jail on an out-of-county warrant.
The other man with a warrant for his arrest in
the attack, 18-year-old Michael Francis Daniel,
remains at large.

hate to in order to avoid feel-
ing unsettled. Get busy doing
all those things at home that
you have been putting off for

i a p During
Thursday's June
17 match against
S. ., Greece, a Nigeria
player dealt a big
e blow to his team
.as they played for
e the FIFA World
.. .Cup.
In the first half
V etof Nigeria's
T Group B match,
-Sani Kaita ran
iceinto Greece play-
Sr er and forward,
Nigerian player Sani Kaita is given a red card during Vassilis Torosidis
the Nigeria Vs. Greece soccer game. as the ball rolled
out of bounds.
When the ball rolled off the sideline, things became heated between the two soccer
players. Kaita faced Torosidis and kicked him in the thigh for out of nowhere. Some
onlookers believed that Kaita was provoked by Torosidis when they collided
against each other while others felt that Kaita kicked the forward for no apparent
reason. Either way, Columbian referee, Oscar Ruiz, watched the scene unfold and
immediately issued a red card.
The red card gave the then trailing Greek team a chance to catch up. Before the
incident happened, the game was set 1 to 0 in Nigeria's favor.
"The red card gave us heart to take the game," Greece forward Georgios Samaras
said.
Many of Kaita's team members were shocked that he retaliated the way that he
did.
I didn't expect Kaita...to go like that," forward Chinedu Obasi said. It wasn't
really necessary. I wouldn't criticize him as well because he's my teammate so all I
can do is support him. But after that situation, it was really difficult for us to get
back."
At the end of the game, Nigeria lost to Greece 2 to 1. This is not the first loss for
the Nigerian team during the FIFA World Cup. Saturday, June 12, Nigeria lost to
Argentina 1-0.
In order to stay alive in the tournament, Nigeria must defeat South Korea. The
game will take place Tuesday, June 22 in Moses Mabhida Stadium at 2:30 EDT.
Nigeria also needs Argentina to defeat Greece if they want a shot at the knockout
round.
Nigeria's coach, Lars Lagerback is still optimistic of the team's chances of advanc-
ing in the tournament.
The positive thing is that we still have a chance to of qualifying, although we
need a helping hand from Argentina, "said Lagerback. "We need a fresh start, and
we will do that by beating (South Korea)."




The Suns shine for a win

By Jordan Hill
The Jacksonville Suns take home a win against the Mobile BayBears 8 to 7. The
Suns pulled off the win in the 11th inning and moved the second place team up in the
baseball rankings.
J The win over the Mobile BayBears puts the Suns within one game of being first
place and knocking off Montgomery. This ranking all depends on the results of the
Montgomery-Birmingham game scheduled June 21.
Chris Hatcher picked up the relief win as the normal starting pitched a perfect
11th inning with a strikeout while Roque Mercedes dealt a scoreless 10th inning
before allowing the game-winning run in the 11 th.
Jacksonville lead during most of the game until Mobile tied during the 6th and 7th
innings. Later, BayBears cut the Suns lead 4 to 3 and by the 7th inning, the game
was tied at 4 to 4.
Jacksonville rallied for the win in the eleventh inning, scoring an unearned run on
Mercedes. Brandon Tripp reached on a Mercedes fielding error. After stealing second
base, Tripp moved to third on catcher Ed Easley's throwing error. Lee Mitchell next
singled to right field to score Tripp for an 8-7 final.

COLLEGE AND CAREER CORNER
By Rose Rennekamp
Father Knows Best?
I live in the country, surrounded by woods and acres of
farmland. The other evening, at sundown, I witnessed some-
thing I've never seen before four bucks grazing in the pas-
ture along with four young fawns.
I lost track of time watching the deer. As I sat there, I
thought that perhaps the bucks were taking a cue from
humans with fathers becoming more involved in their chil-
dren's lives.
When I was younger, most of the fathers worked and
mothers ran the household. Although heavy-duty discipline
was left for dad I remember hearing 'Just wait until your
father comes home!' more than once mom took care of
everything else. Dads were, for the most part, left out of many
day-to-day parenting duties. They were great for a game of
catch or a story before bedtime, but they rarely attended par-
ent and teacher conferences or participated in parent and
school organizations. My mother, a former school teacher,
was the parent my brother, sister and I went to when we need-
ed help with homework. She was the one who made sure our
assignments were completed and that we turned them in on
time.
Things were different when I became a parent. My hus-
band and I tried our best to be equal partners. We both served
as homework helpers. We attended parent and teacher con-
ferences together. We shared responsibilities for school
fundraisers.
The efforts were worth it.
Family involvement is a win-win-win situation for stu-
dents, schools, and families. Studies show that parents hlp
students achieve higher grades, better attendance and home-
work completion, more positive attitudes toward school, high-
er graduation rates and greater enrollment in college.
Several indicators suggest that today's fathers are tak-
ing a more active role in their offspring's education than ever
before. While some teens will complain that dad's presence is
cramping their style, studies show that students thrive when
dad takes an interest in their education.
The U.S. Department of Education's "A Call to
Commitment: Fathers' Involvement in Children's Learning"
states that children of involved fathers show an increase in
curiosity and in problem-solving capacity. A father's commit-
ment encourages his children to explore the world around
them, thereby increasing confidence in their ability to solve
problems.
Additional studies credit dad's influence for positive
outcomes such as better peer relationships, fewer behavior
problems, and higher self-esteem. Students who function well
at home and school are better equipped to function well in life
and work, too.
If you're a father involved in your student's education,
bravo! There are many ways your presence will increase their
chances at success. Every school event you attend' may
increase your student's chances for success because the act
acknowledges the importance of education. If you are a father
(or a mother, for that matter) who thinks you should do more,
start today. Talk with your child about their school day. Ask
questions. Look over homework assignments. Offer your
assistance. You.may be surprised the smallest change may
have a great impact.

STUDENTS EARN COMPUTERS FOR READING

Four students at Andrew Robinson Elementary School proved reading is important and
fundamental to academic success. The students were awarded multimedia computers
for their reading accomplishment by their PE teacher William Jackson.
SFor the past three years
S. Coach Jackson awards multime-
5,. dia computers to top readers and
academic performers. Partnering
r with the Media Specialist Nancy
Rentz and Instructional Coach
Michelle Walsh-Lopez; the. stu-
dents ranging in grades second
thru fifth each read above the
number of books required (25)
p and passed their computer based
es reading assessment to be award-
*.p ed multimedia computers at the
end of the school year.
These were the top readers
in their grade level:
SSecond grade Nehemia Wilford
Third grade Ja'Ali V. Thanars
Fourth grade Maxwell Linning
Fifth grade Keana D. Bryant

In addition to winning a computer Ja'Ali also is an A/B honor student, scored level
5 on Reading and Math on FCAT testing and has read over 25 books on the
Superintendent's Book Club. These students and others excelled above and beyond the
requirements to be successful readers. They are role models to their peers at Andrew
Robinson and in Duval County Public Schools. In the 2010-2011 school year Coach
Jackson hopes to award multimedia laptops to top readers in Kindergarten thrU 5th grade
and establish a partnership with other elementary schools to motivate reading success
throughout DCPS elementary schools. The fundamentals of reading success begin in the
primary grades of our elementary schools. Students should be rewarded with tools that
promote and encourage learning. Technology is a great motivator for students and empow-
ers them for continued success in their academic journeys.

Just Sayin"
Live mindful of how brief life is. Think about friends, loved
ones, and family who have passed. Cherish your moments.

Many people take no care of money until they're at the end of
it. Other's act the same with their time. Some are here for a
good time, not a long time. Live in the present. Enjoy your
life! One day you're here, then you're gone... I'm just sayin...
