Polytechnic High School, has been ordered to repay $2.6 million in damages related to the $1.5 million she received from the Long Beach School District in a 2007 lawsuit, claiming an unsafe environment.Gibson was sued for the money she received, as well as court costs and a possible $1 million inpunitive damages. Gibson was not present at the ruling and her whereabouts are unknown, per the Long Beach Press-Telegram, but the court gained authorization to recoup the money through her future wages and property. It's important to note that Banks receives none of this money. He served five years in prison and another five years on probation as a result of the original verdict, and was released only in 2012 when Banks taped her admitting that the accusation was false. home a Tony for best featured actor as a newspaper editor in "Lucky Guy."

He had just joined with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form the most star-powered triumvirate in the league, and now he was promising the Miami Heat fistfuls of titles. Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not sevenƒ James crowed, and he was mocked fast and hard for the boast, for the spectacle of a welcome party the Heat had thrown for him, for his narcissistic I'm-taking-my-talents-to-South-Beach cable TV special. He hadn't won anything yet, of course. He just acted like he had, arriving there full of pompousness and entitlement, well on his way to becoming one of the sporting world's great villains.

Upon arrival officers located the listed victim inside the house unresponsive. We later learned that the residents of the house were watching a movie when several males forced entry into the residence through the front door, in an attempted home invasion robbery. The residents of that home fired at the suspects striking the listed victim. That victim was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. (Aaron Harris) Early this morning, Thursday 06-20-2013, police were again called to the Arlington area, when a deceased body was found near a dumpster at the Monument Road Animal Hospital at 1238 Monument Rd. Upon further investigation by JSO Homicide detectives, it was determined that the deceased was also a suspect in the earlier home invasion/attempted robbery on Oak Water Drive. At this time we cannot confirm the identity of the second deceased, as family notifications are underway. This is a very active investigation and further details will be provided in future updates. Any citizens with information about these homicides are asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office at (904) 630-0500 or to remain completely anonymous. Basquiat, who grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., was the son of a Haitian father and a Puerto Rican mother. He died Aug. 12,1988. He was only 27. Basquiat began as an obscure graffiti artist in the late 1970s before evolving into one the world's most-acclaimed artists. He initially signed his graffiti art as SAMO. Homeless and living in Central Park, abandoned buildings and with friends, Basquiat sold hand-painted postcards and T-shirts to make money when he first started out. He died at 27 and 25 years later, his painting, pictured above, DustheadŽ sold at a New York auction for more than $48 million.

Even though the drop in the white population is small now, many demographers said that they have never before seen a similar drop off. No other racial group shrank during this period. Whats behind the population decline among whites? For one thing, theyre older with a median age of 42. The median age for Asians is 34. For African-Americans, the median age is 32, and 28 for Hispanics.

JUNE 22, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 5 Three Ways to Give Back to Your Community(StatePoint) These days, many of us lead busy lives that are short on two things: time and money. And while this may pose a challenge when it comes to supporting local nonprofit organizations, there are ways you can give back to the community, no matter what your schedule or financial situation looks like. Here are three simple ideas for making a positive contribution, whether youre strapped for time, resources or both: Use Your Work Day Youre probably pretty busy juggling family and work obligations. Chances are you really want to volunteer in your community but may not always have the time to do as much as youd like. This doesnt mean that lending a helping hand is out of reach for you. Consider starting a Volunteer Day initiative at your workplace, where the whole team offers their time to local nonprofit community service projects one afternoon every few months. Your boss may love the idea if you remind him or her that such an effort will be great for team building. Or check with your human resources department about the possibility of paid time off to volunteer in the community. There may be opportunities at your company of which you are not aware. Nominate a Nonprofit You dont need to be a big donor to help secure substantial support for organizations doing great work. For example, a program called 50 States for GoodŽ enables people to nominate their favorite community organizations to help gain funding for grassroots community programming. It is designed to make it easier for regular folks to give back, and is funded by Toms of Maine, a leading natural products company focused on oral and personal care. Anyone who is heartened by the work of local nonprofit organizations can nominate their favorite for a chance to share in $150,000 in funding. A panel of independent judges then determines 51 finalists, one from each state and the District of Columbia. Fifteen organizations will be awarded $10,000 each, as determined by a public vote in September. In past years, Toms of Maine has funded 50 States for GoodŽ projects that have built community playgrounds, maintained sustainable nature trails, provided shelter and food for the homeless and cared for animals, among many other initiatives. Now in its fifth year, 50 States for GoodŽ celebrates and rewards nonprofit organizations committed to meaningful change and work that addresses local needs. To nominate an organization via a short essay, visit www.50statesforgood.com through July 8, 2013. Multitask Walking the dog? Taking the kids to the park? Consider combining your stroll with a mini cleanup. Bring a plastic bag, wear gloves and pick up litter as you go. Not only will you be beautifying the neighborhood, youll be helping to prevent harmful garbage from entering local waterways. Get the kids involved to teach them an important lesson about how their behaviors can make a larger impact. You dont need to be Bill and Melinda Gates to make a meaningful impact. There are creative ways that make it possible for anyone to give back to their community.

Two Men Use Juveniles for Fundraiser Scheme Police were dispatched in reference to juveniles that were soliciting door to door, attempting to sell food goods and other items. While soliciting at one home, one of the juveniles asked for a drink of water. The juveniles told residents that they were working with a non-profit, youth organization called Aware and Active Youth Corp. The organization was supposed to be designed to offer extracurricular activities to its members. When police arrived on scene they located two juveniles in the area. The juveniles appeared to be very thirsty. They had been left in the area with no food, water, or means of communication and they did not even know where they were. The police took custody of the juveniles to further investigate. Detectives were called in to continue the investigation. Investigation revealed that nine juveniles, ranging ages from 12 through 15, were transported far from home to sell items door to door. The juveniles had been dropped off at 1 p.m. and were walking unsupervised until 6 p.m. when the resident called police. Detectives learned that two young adults, Kendy Senat, 22, and Terrence Holiday, 21, were responsible for the juveniles. They were the ones behind operating the solicitation scheme. The juveniles were given cue cards to read to customersregarding the non-profit organizationand funding the youth group. In reality, the group was pocketing all of the money, with the juveniles turning over most of the earnings to Senat and Holiday. Each item that was sold $8.00, the juveniles were given $2.25, and the rest went to Senat and Holiday. The juveniles told detectives they would normally work 8-12 hours per day and would earn between 5 and 50 dollars per day. They all advised that they did not know where the were or any of the street names where they had been left to work. Detectives contacted the parents of each juvenile as well as the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Each parent was advised that his or her child was at a youth convention with Senat and Holiday. They were also that their children were lied to as well. Detectives determined that the group collected nearly $500 from numerous residents in. They were purchasing items from the dollar store and then selling the items for $8 each. As a result of the investigation and multiple interviews, probable cause was developed for Kendy Senat and Terrence Holiday for organized fraud. With the assistance of DCF, a second charge was developed on both individuals for nine counts of child neglect. Please be cautious when purchasing items from someone that you do not know or from anyone claiming that they are representing a charity.

They spend much of their time fighting rival gangs to keep them out of this territory. Most gang members are males ranging in age from 8 to 22 years old. Females, especially Asian and Hispanic, are moving away from the traditional role of being merely girlfriends of gang members and are forming their own gangs. Gangs wear particular items, styles, brands, or colors of clothing. Some gangs wear bandannas of a certain color or baseball caps of a specific team.Some gangs mark their bodies with tattoos with their gang symbol or name. Gangs often use special hands signs or handshakes to tell others the gang to which they belong. Gangsta rap paints a realistic picture of daily gang activity. The lyrics glorify violence, abuse of women, and disrespect for authority, especially the police. Contrary to what you may think, gangs are not around to help you. These groups of young people break the law, beat up people, and murder. What causes some teens to join gangs? Among the most common reasons are to: belong to a group receive protection earn money end boredom and seek more excitement be with friends and be more popular. For some it is even a family tradition. What Does the Future Hold : Gang members may be killed or injured. Many put themselves in danger of disease, prison, and death. Many become dependent on alcohol and drugs. Gang members usually drop out of school, limiting their chances for higher education or good employment. They are likely to be involved in crime throughout the rest of their lives. They may commit serious and violent crimes that lead to lengthy jail time. Your Children : If threatened by gangs, tell them to let you know and possibly contact the police or school officials. Tell them dont be a wannabe by dressing or acting like they want to be in a gang. Make sure they hang out with other kids who are not involved and dont want to be in a gang. Encourage them to get involved in activities that are not gang-related, such as organized sports, summer jobs, community organizations, volunteer groups, faith groups, or arts and drama groups. Safety Elderly Woman Unknowingly Hires Repeat Criminal to do Housework man hired by a 92-year-old woman to do yard work and odd jobs around her home. The victim said she hired Joseph Schum, 45, but after a few months, she realized she was missing numerous items of International sterling silver dinnerware, Minton china, a gold necklace with a rare silver Spanish coin, and possibly cash. Detectives say that Schum stole several thousand dollars worth of household items and jewelry and learned that he had pawned some of these items in January and February of this year. He was arrested and charged with exploitation of the elderly, and three counts each of dealing in stolen property and providing false ownership information to a pawn broker. This is Schums 20th arrest for similar crimes as well as burglary, aggravated assault and possession of crack cocaine. He is being held without bond on two charges and $150,000 bond on the remaining counts.

To acknowledge National Garbage Man Day, Mayor Brown praised all city employees for their enthusiastic work to keep Jacksonville clean, day in and day out. Its important to celebrate the hard work these men and women do for our quality of life in Jacksonville,Ž said the Mayor. We need to recognize the efforts of these public servants that keep our streets and neighborhoods clean and help to foster a greater sense of pride in our community.Ž The mayor said that respecting valued city employees is about more than simple rhetoric or symbolic ceremony. True recognition is about genuine involvement; rolling up your sleeves, taking off your tie and breaking a sweat with some of Jacksonvilles hardest working men and women. It means a lot for him to come out in the hot sun and see our work life,Ž said garbage collector Kenneth Buchanan, a city employee. It really shows he cares about our community and the City of Jacksonville,Ž said Cory Smith.

Included in the group was Wil Ellis Williams, the middle son of Inez Williams from whom the park was named after. Mrs. Williams was called, The Mayor of Dix-villeŽ because of her giving spirit, helping the residents. To those in attendance, Dix-Ville will always be home. I could have not put this reunion together without a good friend, Mrs. Andrea Austin West who was the only one to show up to every meeting with lots of ideas.

JUNE 22, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9By Matt Leland / Jacksonville Suns Kyle Jensen and Danny Pertusati each hit home runs for the Jacksonville Suns (10, 35-33), who began the second half of the 2013 season with a 9-4 victory over the Huntsville Stars (0-1, 29-40) at Bragan Field in game one of a five-game series. Jensen's two-run shot was his Southern League best 16th home run of the season, while Pertusati's third long ball of the campaign was a three-run blast gave the Suns a five-run cushion in the seventh inning. "We came out swinging the bats tonight," said Suns manager Andy Barkett following the game. "Just had some energy in the dugout. There's always optimism in the second half. It's a new beginning." A sour note for Jacksonville came in the eighth, however, when outfielder and Marlins number four prospect Jake Marisnick was hit on the hand by a pitch and had to be removed from the game. The pitch struck the same hand that Marisnick injured during spring training. On the mound, Adam Conley earned the win for Jacksonville despite allowing a two-run home run to Brock Kjeldgaard and a two-run single to Hector Gomez. Conley picked up his team-leading seventh victory with five and two thirds innings on four-run ball, striking out five and walking four. The Suns, who struggled offensively over the final several weeks of the first half of the season, pounded out 11 hits, including three for catcher J.T. Realmuto. Shortstop Danny Black also finished with two hits, two runs scored and an RBI.At the unveiling of the newly renovated Jaguars Reading DenŽ at Andrew Jackson High School, Jaguars owner Shad Khan announced the awarding of 11 scholarships by the Jaguars Foundation totaling over $25,000. These students will be attending various colleges including the University of Florida, University of North Florida, Florida State College at Jacksonville and Bethune-Cookman University. The college scholarship program was established as a part of the Jaguars corporate partnership with Andrew Jackson High School to assist students at the school who successfully completed the Jaguars Foundations Honor Rows program. The Jaguars Reading Den at Andrew Jackson High School is a multi-purpose meeting room for students, teachers and staff. The Jaguars Reading Den features two lounge areas, interchangeable study centers, hundreds of books and magazines and signed team paraphernalia including a game day ball signed by Shad Khan and a new Jaguars helmet signed by Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley. The team invested nearly $25,000 to renovate the room. Shad Khan is a champion of education, and scholarships from the Jaguars Foundation will help these students take the next steps needed for their successful futures,Ž said Jaguars Foundation President Peter Racine. He added, We are so pleased to provide this refurbished room to the school. One of the unique aspects of the Jaguars Reading Den is that through our partnership with FIRSTBOOK, the students are free to take any book they like home with them to incorporate into their home libraries.Ž The Jaguars Foundation and team have a strong commitment to education and provide grants exceeding $1 million annually to support youth and families and other NFL and team initiatives in the community.Foundation awards 11 college scholarships to Andrew Jackson HS grads & unveils Jaguars Reading DenSuns Begin Second Half With 9-4 Win NEXTWEEKS ISSUE: Recap of NBAFinals

Polytechnic High School, has been ordered to repay $2.6 million in damages related to the $1.5 million she received from the Long Beach School District in a 2007 lawsuit, claiming an unsafe environment.Gibson was sued for the money she received, as well as court costs and a possible $1 million inpunitive damages. Gibson was not present at the ruling and her whereabouts are unknown, per the Long Beach Press-Telegram, but the court gained authorization to recoup the money through her future wages and property. It's important to note that Banks receives none of this money. He served five years in prison and another five years on probation as a result of the original verdict, and was released only in 2012 when Banks taped her admitting that the accusation was false. home a Tony for best featured actor as a newspaper editor in "Lucky Guy."

He had just joined with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form the most star-powered triumvirate in the league, and now he was promising the Miami Heat fistfuls of titles. Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven James crowed, and he was mocked fast and hard for the boast, for the spectacle of a welcome party the Heat had thrown for him, for his narcissistic I'm-taking-my-talents-to-South-Beach cable TV special. He hadn't won anything yet, of course. He just acted like he had, arriving there full of pompousness and entitlement, well on his way to becoming one of the sporting world's great villains.

Upon arrival officers located the listed victim inside the house unresponsive. We later learned that the residents of the house were watching a movie when several males forced entry into the residence through the front door, in an attempted home invasion robbery. The residents of that home fired at the suspects striking the listed victim. That victim was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. (Aaron Harris) Early this morning, Thursday 06-20-2013, police were again called to the Arlington area, when a deceased body was found near a dumpster at the Monument Road Animal Hospital at 1238 Monument Rd. Upon further investigation by JSO Homicide detectives, it was determined that the deceased was also a suspect in the earlier home invasion/attempted robbery on Oak Water Drive. At this time we cannot confirm the identity of the second deceased, as family notifications are underway. This is a very active investigation and further details will be provided in future updates. Any citizens with information about these homicides are asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office at (904) 630-0500 or to remain completely anonymous. Basquiat, who grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., was the son of a Haitian father and a Puerto Rican mother. He died Aug. 12,1988. He was only 27. Basquiat began as an obscure graffiti artist in the late 1970s before evolving into one the world's most-acclaimed artists. He initially signed his graffiti art as SAMO. Homeless and living in Central Park, abandoned buildings and with friends, Basquiat sold hand-painted postcards and T-shirts to make money when he first started out. He died at 27 and 25 years later, his painting, pictured above, Dusthead sold at a New York auction for more than $48 million.

Even though the drop in the white population is small now, many demographers said that they have never before seen a similar drop off. No other racial group shrank during this period. Whats behind the population decline among whites? For one thing, theyre older with a median age of 42. The median age for Asians is 34. For African-Americans, the median age is 32, and 28 for Hispanics.

They were delighted and decided it was best to not ask questions about his future plans just wait and continue to encouraage him. About two weeks later, his report card came. He not only went down in his tory, his score went down in math also. After he handed the report to them and observed the look on their faces, he said: I told you so.

Instead, AARP is fighting for common-sense solutions that will strengthen Medicare while also reducing the nations budget deficit. Wooden and Holmes will be joined by AARP FL Communications Manager Dave Bruns, wholl update listeners on the latest information on Medicare. Also on June 26, Wooden and Holmes will be joined by AARP Florida Executive Council Member Dr. Brenda Jarmon, a professor at Florida A&M University, to discuss Juneteenth, the holiday in the United States that commemorates the abolition of slavery at the close of the Civil War.

JUNE 22, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 5 Three Ways to Give Back to Your Community(StatePoint) These days, many of us lead busy lives that are short on two things: time and money. And while this may pose a challenge when it comes to supporting local nonprofit organizations, there are ways you can give back to the community, no matter what your schedule or financial situation looks like. Here are three simple ideas for making a positive contribution, whether youre strapped for time, resources or both: Use Your Work Day Youre probably pretty busy juggling family and work obligations. Chances are you really want to volunteer in your community but may not always have the time to do as much as youd like. This doesnt mean that lending a helping hand is out of reach for you. Consider starting a Volunteer Day initiative at your workplace, where the whole team offers their time to local nonprofit community service projects one afternoon every few months. Your boss may love the idea if you remind him or her that such an effort will be great for team building. Or check with your human resources department about the possibility of paid time off to volunteer in the community. There may be opportunities at your company of which you are not aware. Nominate a Nonprofit You dont need to be a big donor to help secure substantial support for organizations doing great work. For example, a program called States for Good enables people to nominate their favorite community organizations to help gain funding for grassroots community programming. It is designed to make it easier for regular folks to give back, and is funded by Toms of Maine, a leading natural products company focused on oral and personal care. Anyone who is heartened by the work of local nonprofit organizations can nominate their favorite for a chance to share in $150,000 in funding.

Two Men Use Juveniles for Fundraiser Scheme Police were dispatched in reference to juveniles that were soliciting door to door, attempting to sell food goods and other items. While soliciting at one home, one of the juveniles asked for a drink of water. The juveniles told residents that they were working with a non-profit, youth organization called Aware and Active Youth Corp. The organization was supposed to be designed to offer extracurricular activities to its members. When police arrived on scene they located two juveniles in the area. The juveniles appeared to be very thirsty. They had been left in the area with no food, water, or means of communication and they did not even know where they were. The police took custody of the juveniles to further investigate. Detectives were called in to continue the investigation. Investigation revealed that nine juveniles, ranging ages from 12 through 15, were transported far from home to sell items door to door. The juveniles had been dropped off at 1 p.m. and were walking unsupervised until 6 p.m. when the resident called police. Detectives learned that two young adults, Kendy Senat, 22, and Terrence Holiday, 21, were responsible for the juveniles. They were the ones behind operating the solicitation scheme. The juveniles were given cue cards to read to customersregarding the non-profit organizationand funding the youth group. In reality, the group was pocketing all of th e money, with the juveniles turning over most of the earnings to Senat and Holiday. Each item that was sold $8.00, the juveniles were given $2.25, and the rest went to Senat and Holiday. The juveniles told detectives they would nor mally work 8-12 hours per day and would earn between 5 and 50 dollars per day. They all advised that they did not know where the were or any of the street names where they had been left to work. Detectives contacted the parents of each juvenile as well as the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Each parent was advised that his or her child was at a youth convention with Senat and Holiday. They were also that their children were lied to as well. Detectives determined that the group collected nearly $500 from numerous residents in. They were purchasing items from the dollar store and then selling the items for $8 each. As a result of the investigation and multiple interviews, probable cause was developed for Kendy Senat and Terrence Holiday for organized fraud. With the assistance of DCF, a second charge was developed on both individuals for nine counts of child neglect. Please be cautious when purchasing items from someone that you do not know or from anyone claiming that they are representing a charity.

Gangs usually claim a particular area of town which they call their turf. They spend much of their time fighting rival gangs to keep them out of this territory. Most gang members are males ranging in age from 8 to 22 years old. Females, especially Asian and Hispanic, are moving away from the traditional role of being merely girlfriends of gang members and are forming their own gangs. Gangs wear particular items, styles, brands, or colors of clothing. Some gangs wear bandannas of a certain color or baseball caps of a specific team.Some gangs mark their bodies with tattoos with their gang symbol or name. Gangs often use special hands signs or handshakes to tell others the gang to which they belong. Gangsta rap paints a realistic picture of daily gang activity. The lyrics glorify violence, abuse of women, and disrespect for authority, especially the police. Contrary to what you may think, gangs are not around to help you. These groups of young people break the law, beat up people, and murder. What causes some teens to join gangs? Among the most common reasons are to: belong to a group receive protection earn money end boredom and seek more excitement be with friends and be more popular. For some it is even a family tradition. What Does the Future Hold : Gang members may be killed or injured. Many put themselves in danger of disease, prison, and death. Many become dependent on alcohol and drugs. Gang members usually drop out of school, limiting their chances for higher education or good employment. They are likely to be involved in crime throughout the rest of their lives. They may commit serious and violent crimes that lead to lengthy jail time. Your Children : If threatened by gangs, tell them to let you know and possibly contact the police or school officials. Tell them dont be a wannabe by dressing or acting like they want to be in a gang. Make sure they hang out with other kids who are not involved and dont want to be in a gang. Encourage them to get involved in activities that are not gang-related, such as organized sports, summer jobs, community organizations, volunteer groups, faith groups, or arts and drama groups.

To acknowledge National Garbage Man Day, Mayor Brown praised all city employees for their enthusiastic work to keep Jacksonville clean, day in and day out. Its important to celebrate the hard work these men and women do for our quality of life in Jacksonville, said the Mayor. We need to recognize the efforts of these public servants that keep our streets and neighborhoods clean and help to foster a greater sense of pride in our community. The mayor said that respecting valued city employees is about more than simple rhetoric or symbolic ceremony. True recognition is about genuine involvement; rolling up your sleeves, taking off your tie and breaking a sweat with some of Jacksonvilles hardest working men and women. It means a lot for him to come out in the hot sun and see our work life, said garbage collector Kenneth Buchanan, a city employee. It really shows he cares about our community and the City of Jacksonville, said Cory Smith. Photos courtesy of COJ.net

JUNE 22, 2013 THESTAR PAGEBy Matt Leland / Jacksonville Suns Kyle Jensen and Danny Pertusati each hit home runs for the Jacksonville Suns (10, 35-33), who began the second half of the 2013 season with a 9-4 victory over the Huntsville Stars (0-1, 29-40) at Bragan Field in game one of a five-game series. Jensen's two-run shot was his Southern League best 16th home run of the season, while Pertusati's third long ball of the campaign was a three-run blast gave the Suns a five-run cushion in the seventh inning. "We came out swinging the bats tonight," said Suns manager Andy Barkett following the game. "Just had some energy in the dugout. There's always optimism in the second half. It's a new beginning." A sour note for Jacksonville came in the eighth, however, when outfielder and Marlins number four prospect Jake Marisnick was hit on the hand by a pitch and had to be removed from the game. The pitch struck the same hand that Marisnick injured during spring training. On the mound, Adam Conley earned the win for Jacksonville despite allowing a two-run home run to Brock Kjeldgaard and a two-run single to Hector Gomez. Conley picked up his team-leading seventh victory with five and two thirds innings on four-run ball, striking out five and walking four. The Suns, who struggled offensively over the final several weeks of the first half of the season, pounded out 11 hits, including three for catcher J.T. Realmuto. Shortstop Danny Black also finished with two hits, two runs scored and an RBI.At the unveiling of the newly renovated Jaguars Reading Den at Andrew Jackson High School, Jaguars owner Shad Khan announced the awarding of 11 scholarships by the Jaguars Foundation totaling over $25,000.

The college scholarship program was established as a part of the Jaguars corporate partnership with Andrew Jackson High School to assist students at the school who successfully completed the Jaguars Foundations Honor Rows program. The Jaguars Reading Den at Andrew Jackson High School is a multi-purpose meeting room for students, teachers and staff. The Jaguars Reading Den features two lounge areas, interchangeable study centers, hundreds of books and magazines and signed team paraphernalia including a game day ball signed by Shad Khan and a new Jaguars helmet signed by Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley. The team invested nearly $25,000 to renovate the room. Shad Khan is a champion of education, and scholarships from the Jaguars Foundation will help these students take the next steps needed for their successful futures, said Jaguars Foundation President Peter Racine. He added, We are so pleased to provide this refurbished room to the school. One of the unique aspects of the Jaguars Reading Den is that through our partnership with FIRSTBOOK, the students are free to take any book they like home with them to incorporate into their home libraries. The Jaguars Foundation and team have a strong commitment to education and provide grants exceeding $1 million annually to support youth and families and other NFL and team initiatives in the community.Foundation awards 11 college scholarships to Andrew Jackson HS grads & unveils Jaguars Reading DenSuns Begin Second Half With 9-4 Win NEXTWEEKS ISSUE: Recap of NBAFinals
