Georgia Twins Kill Mother
According to reports,
Tasmiyah and Jasmiyah
Whitehead, 15 years of
age at the time, of
Conyers, Georgia had
moved back home with
their mother, Jarmecca
Whitehead, 34, a hair styl-
i n h ist, eight days before they
reported that when they
arrived home, they found
Tasmiyah and Jasmiyah Whitehead, 15, stabbed mother to death. arr otheyfn d
their mother lying in a
pool of blood, beaten and stabbed several times. The girls flagged down a police officer and
reported their find.
Investigators were always suspicious of the murder. The girls had lived with their grandmoth-
er for one and a half year because they had previously assaulted their mother. Their grandmoth-
er and great-grandmother had reported difficulty handling the once upon a time, honor students.
According to their mother's boss, the twins had stolen money from their grandmother and their
great-grandmother, causing the great grandmother to put dead-bolt locks on her bedroom door to
keep the girls out. It was reported that the girls were difficult to handle and extremely defiant.
Tasmiyah and Jasmiyah have pleaded not guilty to the murder charges and have been placed in
different detention centers, in an effort to keep them separated to avoid them conspiring. They
are both in the centers without bail and will be tried as adults.
The mother had previously raised the girls alone until they went to stay with their grandmoth-
er. Their mother had asked them to return and they agreed to forgive and forget. Their case
is scheduled to begin on June 7. They are now 16 years of age.
Four Jacksonville Officers
Arrested in 2010
During the first half of 2010, four police officers who
are a part of Jacksonville's staff, have been arrested.
David Cervone pleaded guilty to filing a false police
report. David Garza participated in the filing in an
effort to get inside of a drug house.
James Toner was in a fight at a bar in Neptune Beach
wherein he beat a man and was therefore arrested.
Arnold Sharkey was charged with assault after being
accused of trying to run his estranged wife off the road.
He resigned after the incident.
Jacksonville has experienced several incidents involv-
ing police officers that citizens feel were not justifiable
and therefore have sought the establishment of a citi-
zens police review board.

AccuCare of North Florida Grand Opening Celebration
Family, friends, community leaders, and residents came together last
Saturday to celebrate the Grand Opening of AccuCare of North Florida
at 5685 Norwood Ave.
The brainchild of Dr. Ira Harmon, his vision is that AccuCare provide
a healthcare bridge between the family practitioner and the emergency
"Medical problems that demand immediate attention often develop
unexpectedly," said Dr. Harmon. "In the past, patients went to the hospi-
tal emergency room for treatment. Last year, 227,862 individuals sought
care at the Shands Jacksonville ER. This is a costly alternative for non-
emergency healthcare with long wait times and we risk tying up
resources for true emergencies."
"AccuCare is open every day of the week with extended hours. Patients
can come early morning or late evening with sore throats, sudden fevers,
minor cuts and burns, sprained ankles and broken fingers," Dr. Harmon
The urgent care clinic is committed to keeping fees as low as possible
so that it is accessible to the greatest number of people. The experienced

JACKSONVILLE IS CHOSEN TO HOST WORLD'S
2011 GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER
The International Board of the Global Day of Prayer
has chosen Jacksonville, FL as its 2011 host city for the
world. Most recently, host cities include Hong Kong and
Cape Town. Next year's event will be held on Pentecost
Sunday, June 12, 2011 in the Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium, 1 Stadium Place, Jacksonville, FL 32202 OR
in the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, 300 A.
Philip Randolph Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32202.
The world will focus on Jacksonville as The God
Channel streams the event live from either the
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium or the Jacksonville
Veterans Memorial Arena. The Global Day of Prayer's
international team hopes to attract approximately 2000-
3000 staff and visitors to our city the week prior to the
June 12th event. Plenary sessions will be in various hotels

The Global Day of Prayer is a worldwide movement
which started in Cape Town, South Africa in 2000.
Approximately 400 million Christians in 220 countries
participated in the Global Day of Prayer this year. The
purpose of the event is to unite Christians for worship
through praise and prayer while mobilizing the church to
become involved in social issues such as redeveloping
urban areas, feeding the poor, clothing the unclothed and
supporting the oppressed. As a result of Jacksonville's
2010 Global Day of Prayer held at the Metropolitan Park,
two further initiatives are a neighborhood prayer walk

Beatrice Matthews I
At The University Club
An Elegant Surprise Luncheon Celebration
Mrs. Beatrice Matthews, a member of St. Paul AME Church began celebrating
her 75th birthday at the beginning of the month with family and friends in different
venues. Beatrice kicked off her celebration activities by attending the Stanton
Annual Gala held at the Prime Osbom Convention Center. At the Regency Movie
Theater she received a surprise audience introduction, was presented with a gift
from family and was serenaded by movie goers with the birthday song. Beatrice
took a fun group trip to Tampa. She also attended the Bold City Chapter of Links,
Inc. Annual Old School Gala held at the Stadium. Beatrice daughters, Mrs. La Vonne
Mitchell and Ms. La Vettaa Matthews along with grandson, Mr. Rashad Medlock,
Tallahassee, planned an elegant surprise luncheon for her at the University Club on
May 24, 2010. Family, friends and acquaintances including sister-in-law, Mrs.
Fannie Calhoun, New York City and longtime friends, Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo
Alexander, Tallahassee gathered for food, fun and fellowship on this festive occa-
sion. A great time was had by all. Beatrice was showered with expressions of love
and many gifts. She finalized her birthday activities on May 26th, which is her actu-
al birthday at the Crab Cake Factory with family.
Let's face it.
Right now, we're all
looking to save. And you probably
don't expect to save in the same
place where you find great quality
and get treated nicely. But actually,
at Publix you'll find thousands of
items on sale every day-clearly
marked, easy to find, with savings
highlighted on the shelf and again
on your receipt. You'll notice
Publix brand products, priced
lower than national brands without
compromising quality. And along
the way, you'll get helpful service
you can't quite put a price on.
So, even when you're shopping on
a budget, you don't have to give up
the experience you deserve.
Love to shop here.
Love to save here.

favorite moments were with the past ten

asked me if I would like to be in an animat-
C ed movie and I said yeah! He said the title

When asked why He thought the Shrek
franchise has been so successful Murphy
FE says, "I think that it's well written and well
made. It's as simple as that. When you have
those things in place, you increase your
A chances of a film becoming a hit." When
quizzed about his donkey
character and where he had to
go mentally to do him,
Murphy smiles, "I just do it.
There is on science to what I
do. I sometimes wish that
there was. But I've always
been the type of person that
can turn it on when the direc-
tor says action. That's with
any of my roles. When I hear
action, I become that
Character, and when I hear

as simple as that."
Diaz compliments the writers by saying,
"These characters are so important. When I arrived to
the studio for a recording session, I just had full confi-
dence in the story that they were telling." The entire
Shrek cast agreed that the movie and the efforts were
well worth the experience. Obviously, the public agrees

Some Justice Is Better Than No Justice, But Is It Enough?
Recently in the news of Jacksonville, Florida over the past 6 months Officers of the Jacksonville
Sheriff's Office have been arrested for various acts of misconduct and violation of the law. They have
even been dismissed from the Sheriff Department. Way to go Sheriff Rutherford, but is it enough?
Some justice is better than no justice, but is it enough? The Sheriff Department is also encouraged to
remember the shootings that were declared justified and were questionable, are still problems of con-
cern in the community that has increased our mistrust and confidence in the JSO in our community.
Let us not forget the elderly man who was shot in his own yard, or the young man that was shot and
the witness stated that he did not have a gun. By the way, what happen to the l6 year old black female/
Is she still in Jacksonville, is she even still alive? No wait, what happen to the witness of the 40 plus
shots on Baymeadows Road is he safe? One Officer was charged with hitting a person in custody
with a radio, what about the tasers, clubs, pistols in people mouths etc... The climate in the JSO office
has been one of intimidation, violence and in some cases death without explanation within a climate
of justifiable mistrust by some citizens of the community. Thank God for someone taking a stance in
the Sheriff Department and saying, enough is enough. Yes, Police Officers are expected to have high
ethical and moral standards, enforce the law, protect themselves, but never to abuse power. Based on
the recent arrest of Police Officers, is it also true that some Police Officers intimidate, harass, search
females and others illegally, profile citizens and citizens lose their lives in and with the hands of some
Police Officers? If one Officer lied on a Police report, could it be that others do and have lied also to
cover up their actions? If you have as many Police Officers as Duval County have, it seems likely
that some have lied on a Police Report to cover their actions. So, yes, the recent arrest of Police
Officers over the past 6 months for violations is a step in the right direction. We need and the com-
munity should want an excellent Sheriff Department and this is a beginning. Some justice is better
than no justice, but are these recent arrests enough or only just started? If they check closely, dig deep-
er and demand excellence, truth and equal justice for all, maybe we can have an excellent Sheriff
Department. But the climate, attitudes, habits and personnel must change to build confidence in the
community. As Ma-dear said in the movie "I don't trust the po..po." We want to trust the JSO and
when we do, crime in Jacksonville will go down, a great start; some justice is better than no justice.

The 30 member (on stage) Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
virtually swept the audience off their feet while performing at the
Times-Union Center for the Artist Series Broadway in Jacksonville.
The performance brought thousands downtown to see the world
renowned dancers we have come to know and love. The buzz is that
famed Artistic Director Judith Jamison, has selected Florida native
Robert Battle to replace her upon retirement in July 2011.
Robert Battle has been presented numerous awards in his field,
in 2005 he was honored in the Masters of African-American
Choreography program at the Kennedy Cernter and in 2007 he
received the prestigious Statue Award from The Princess Grace
Foundation. There are many more accolades for the 37-year old
founder of Battleworks, Inc. Dance Company. Battle choreo-
graphed one of the show's solo performance that featured Abdur-
Rahim Jackson who danced to Nina Simone's soulful and timbre
recording of Wild Is The Wind.
The capacity filled auditorium assembled for the Alvin Ailey
American Dance Theater was one of the most impressive and star
studded audiences representing all ages and cultures. The arts are
thriving in the River City. Eight students from Kezia Rolle's Center
for the Performing Arts have been selected through auditions to
spend this summer in an intensive Alvin Ailey dance camp in New
York City. Look for more on Mrs. Rolle and associates treasure

Ask Deanna! Is an advice column known for its
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!
Dear Deanna! V
I made the mistake and married a man that was a virgin.
Everything in the relationship has always been wonderful -
until our wedding night. I was disappointed because I've been
with others and had experiences that were ten times better. I'm
not sure I want to stay in the marriage because I can't deal with this. What do I do?
Misha Tyler Fort Hood, TX
Be glad you married a man that avoided sexual immorality. Your virgin eliminated
your exposure to AIDS, diseases and baby momma drama. Apparently there were
things other than sex that made you love him and accept his hand in marriage. If you
were smart, you'd realize you're the teacher with a permanent student whose skills
are going to get better and improve with each lesson...if you know what I mean.
Two of my friends have been making me suspicious about my husband because he
comes home late from work. They have been filling up my head with stuff and have
successfully led me to think he's having an affair. I followed him in a different car,
pushed re-dial on the telephone and checked his pockets for phone numbers. His
behavior hasn't changed but my friends keep trying to convince me he's messing
around. I can't find anything. Am I losing it?
Paranoid Bronx, NY
Grow up and stop doing childish things like playing Inspector Gadget. If your
spouse doesn't display signs of infidelity don't look for any. If your man comes
home late, and he says he was working---trust him. You are borrowing trouble and
setting your marriage up for a downfall by listening to your friends. When your girl-
friends start trying to cause drama, stop them dead in their tracks. If they keep at it,
tell them to get lost so you can keep your marriage happy and healthy.
I have problems with my sister constantly giving sweets, candy and junk food to my
nieces and nephews. It wouldn't be so bad if she had dental insurance. I guess I
worry because teeth are important and if they're ruined it could hurt their self-
esteem. How do I approach this subject with her?
Nikki Omaha, NE
Your sister is rudely making bad decisions regarding her children's teeth: That's
something she'll definitely have to deal with later. Unfortunately, the mother is
guilty of harming the vessel God assigned to these kids. The only thing you can do
is suggest healthy snacks, teeth friendly treats and be there for the kids when they
have to put their teeth in a jar at night.

ELECTIONS: THE GANTT REPORT
After the election of
President Barack Obama, many African Americans said to them-
selves, "If Barack Obama can win an election, I can too!" That
comment was ambitious, but unrealistic.
Most of the African American seeking victories in 2010 elections in the cities
where Black-owned newspapers are published will lose. Not all Black candidates are
running in predominately Black Districts but those Blacks running for larger
statewide or federal positions possibly have a better chance than Blacks running in
districts with ample numbers of Black voters.
Why? Let me explain. First of all, most Blacks running for office will be running
against other Blacks so most losers will come as a result of that.
Other Blacks candidates that will look defeat right in the eye are Black candidates
that take Black voters for granted. If you think that every Black voter will vote for
you because you're Black, you must be brain damaged. Those days are over. Black
voters want politicians and candidates that can deliver. They want candidates that will
stand up and speak out on issues that mean something to Blacks. And, if a candidate
will do that, it doesn't matter what color the candidate is.
Some Black candidates will lose because they will refuse professional help and/or
advice. Campaigns are so scientific and technological these days. If your campaign
has a misunderstanding of "political timing", media production, media placement,
direct mail, robo calls, geo-demographic targeting, polling and other areas, your cam-
paign will be at a disadvantage.
I could go on and on but one critical factor that impacts losses in elections by
Black candidates is the fact that many African American candidates simply cannot
generate votes and turnout voters that support them.
A thirty-percent turnout of registered voters is bad news for Black candidates
unless they are running in a predominately Black district. If Black voters make up
ten, twenty or thirty percent of all registered voters in a district, it is easy to see how
any very low turnout would be disastrous for a Black candidate.
The winning Black candidates have winning teams. Winners will chose proven
political performers to help them and not just depend on the classmate, friend,
coworker or family member to guide them to election victory.
History is the best teacher. If you want to find out what someone can do on a cam-
paign, find out if he has worked in any meaningful capacity on other campaigns. In
every city and state, they are Negroes running around saying they are politically tal-
ented and influential. The moment you announce your candidacy someone will run
up to you and say, "I can get you the Black vote!" A smart politician will ask the per-
son, "Tell me how you will do that."
Finally, the most disgusting way for Black candidates to lose is for the Democratic
or Republican Party to use a Black candidate as a sacrificial lamb. The Party usually
will encourage a Black to run for office merely to try to get Blacks to the polls to vote
for some white candidate.
The party won't fund the Black candidate, won't share party technology and
resources with the Black candidate and basically leave the Black candidate out to dry
in a desert of defeat.
You can't use 1950 campaign tactics and expect to win in 2010. Flyers on cars in
Black church parking lots the Sunday before an election will get you nowhere!
It's not too late for Black candidates to create and develop a winning campaign
effort but they must have a plan unique to their campaigns that will result in victory.
They must have a campaign team of the best minds available for African American
candidates. And, they must out work their political opponents.
The Gantt Report prays for the success of all Black candidates even though Stevie
Wonder can see that most Black candidates don't have a clue about how to make
political victory happen. (Become a fan of The Gantt Report on Facebook. Buy

Vonceillia Tyee Solomon (39
years old) has been arrested for the
MURDER of Carlton Antoine King
(34 years old).
On May 23, 2010 around
9:05am patrol officers were dis-
patched to 2922 W. 11th Street in
reference to a stabbing They found
S, the victim just inside the doorway
suffering from an apparent stab
arn. wound to his chest.... The victim was
transported to a local hospital where
he was pronounced deceased.
The victim's girlfriend, the
suspect, Vonceillia Tyee Solomon
and several children were also inside
the residence. Post Miranda, the sus-
pect admitted to police that she had
stabbed the victim. Investigation
revealed the two were arguing over
financial issues. During the argu-
ment, the victim pushed the suspect
"2: ..:1" down. The suspect went to the
kitchen, retrieved a knife and
stabbed the victim in the chest. The suspect was subsequently booked into jail for
On May 20, 2010 officers
responded to a day care in
Jacksonville in reference to
,injuries to a 5 year old and 3 year
old child. The parents stated the
children had numerous small cuts
and nicks on the tops of both
hands and one child had a swollen
/ hand. The other child had a small
wound on the bridge of his nose,
and another small wound at the
base of his nostril.
The parents told police that
since November they have been
taking their children to this day
care. They said that the day care is
run by Andrea Warren (suspect, 48 years old). The parents told police that they
received a telephone call from the suspect that afternoon, informing them that the
suspect had to discipline their children today. The victim's mother said the defen-
dant told her that she didn't "beat their ... or anything like that", but did hit their
hands with a ruler for misbehaving and asked to have the children stay at the day
care "overnight" with her.
After receiving the telephone call from the suspect, the parents immediate-
ly drove to the day care and found their children with the above described wounds.
They said that the defendant was visibly nervous, and told them that the wounds
on the child's nose were from him scratching it. The parents said they took the chil-
dren home and called the police. They said that, while in the car, the children told
them that the suspect had hit them with a ruler.
When asked by police the suspect stated she did not know how the children
got the wounds on their hands, and that the male child's wounds on his nose were
from him scratching his nose. She said that she did not know how the children got
the wounds on their hands, but thinks they probably got them while "playing
around" in the "garden section" of the Home Depot on Lane Avenue.
When police asked the defendant if she disciplined the children today for
misbehaving, the defendant stated, "Yes". When I asked how, she told us that she
made them "clean up the mess" in the day care. When I asked if she struck the chil-
dren with any object, she said, "No". When I asked if she grabbed the children, or
put her hands on them, in any fashion, to discipline them, she said, "No". When I
again asked the defendant if she struck the children with a ruler, or any object, she
said, "No". She told us she has "never" hit a child.
When we told the defendant that the wounds on the children were not con-
sistent with "playing in the Home Depot garden section", the defendant told us that
she did not want to answer any more questions, and that she would like to talk to
Inside the day care, police located a ruler that had blood on it. The suspect
was arrested and transported to jail.

Local Football Legand, Jarvis Williams Dies at 45
Former Miami Dolphins safety Jarvis Williams died Wednesday. He was 45 years old.
The Dolphins said Williams died of an apparent heart attack.
Williams, selected in the second round of the 1988 draft out of the University of Florida, spent six seasons with the Dolphins.
"I am saddened by the loss of Jarvis Williams," said Dolphins vice president Nat Moore. "He was not only a personal friend
but a terrific football player for both the Miami Dolphins and Florida Gators. He dedicated his life to helping young people and
it is a real tragedy to pass away at a young age."
Williams registered 14 interceptions with the Dolphins and added two picks in his lone year with the New York Giants in 1994.
Jarvis Williams, who played six NFL seasons after a spectacular collegiate career at the University of Florida.
A spokeswoman with the Putnam Community Medical Center said Williams died shortly before midnight in his hometown of
Palatka, Fla. The medical examiner confirmed the cause of death was an acute asthma attack.
The Sun Sentinel first reported the cause of death as an apparent heart attack.
Williams, a safety, had 16 interceptions during his NFL career, which spanned from 1988-94. He spent his first five seasons
with the Dolphins, who selected Williams in the second round of the 1988 draft. Williams played his final year with the New
York Giants before retiring.
"It's really a shocker," Norm Carlson, longtime Florida assistant athletic director, told GatorBait.net. "It's so sad. He's got a
family. He's been a good citizen. Forty-five is way too young."
Williams' NFL career pales in comparison to his efforts at Florida. GatorBait's Keith Niebuhr called Williams "one of the most
heralded defensive players" in the program's history, and Williams' statistics back up that claim. In his four years with the
Gators, Williams racked uip 239 tackles and 10 interceptions, the latter number placing him third on Florida's all-time list.

College and Career Corner
By Rose Rennekamp
Colleges are looking for a few good men
I'm part of the generation of mothers who grew up in the era of
women's liberation. Along with many parents, I wanted to be sure my
daughter had every opportunity when it came to education. Now it
appears that we may not be paying as much attention to the options for
Today, more women than men enroll in college and universities
in the U.S., and the percentage of men continues to drop every year. In
2004, 42.9% of all undergraduate students were men, according to the
U.S. Department of Education. In some racial and ethnic groups, the
divide between women and men was even greater. More than a third of
African-American students were men. Just more than four out of ten
Hispanic students were men.
What can we, as parents, do to encourage our sons to go to col-
Start by letting them know at a young age that we expect them to
go to college. If you have a college or university nearby, get your fami-
ly involved in activities there. Visit the campus library, exhibits or muse-
ums. Send your son to summer camps at the college. Take him to a base-
ball game or a gymnastics meet. Getting your son on campus early and
often will help him feel that he "belongs" there. He may begin to think
that's what he'll do after high school.
After grade school, boys who do well at school can be targeted
as "not cool" or "nerds." Input from their friends and classmates seems
more important than our advice as parents. One way to decrease that
pressure is to find a mentor for your son. Find someone who he thinks is
"cool," and who you know worked hard in school and went to college.
There are formal mentoring programs that you can find through
schools or community groups. Another way to find a "cool" mentor is to
look at the young men your son may look up to. This could include an
older cousin or family member, a family friend, a former babysitter, even
the college student who used to live down the street. Talk to these young
men and ask them to take your son under their wings. Maybe they can
take some time to explain what "really matters" to him. With recent
experience at dealing with peer pressure, they could put a good spin on
taking those advanced classes, and working hard on homework. A young
mentor is a good role model for your son to think of if someone at school
badgers him about being a "nerd."
We also need to make sure that our sons understand what it takes
to get into college. A woman I know was surprised when she got the
results from an EXPLORE test- her son took in eighth grade. The test,
which some schools give their students to see if they are on track for col-
lege, showed that her son was not preparing himself in the classroom.
When she asked her son what he thought of the results, he told her he
wasn't worried about it since he'd planned on getting a baseball scholar-
ship for college or going pro.
To show her son what he really needed for college, my friend
took her son to the state university a few hours away, where he met with
an admissions counselor. The university helped him get a better idea of
what he really needs to do in school in order to get ready for his future.
They're also working with the counselors at both the middle and high
schools to make sure that her son takes the right classes and stays on
track for college. The young man still wants to play pro ball, but if that
doesn't work out, he is looking at becoming a banker.
Giving our sons the opportunities to become bankers, engineers,
doctors, or whatever they want to be is the new challenge for today's par-
ents. We've done a fantastic job at giving our daughters more opportuni-
ties to excel. We need to be sure to focus on our sons as well.

The Nassau County Sheriffs Office day,"
showed some students at Yulee High School Seagra

The School Resource Officer organized a
Mock D.U.I on May 14, 2010. He and other
deputies with the sheriff's office worked with
administrators and teachers at YHS to educate
VS *students about the dangers of
drinking and driving.
The demonstration start-
ed with four students
involved in a crash on prom

home from a party, where
there was under age drinking.
Some of their friends saw
them and called for help.
:. Deputies and paramedics with
S'Nassau County Fire and
Rescue responded. One stu-
dent was transported to the
hospital by ambulance. Crews
with Trauma One flew anoth-

third took the final trip of her

the scene in a, hearse.

dent, the driver, a field sobri-

class learned a valuable les-
son about the risks of getting
behind the wheel while intox-
icated. They also saw how
deputies and emergency
i crews respond to a fatal crash.
