Gov. Scott Signs Welfare
Drug Testing Bill
During his campaign, Florida Governor Rick Scott
said that he would require welfare recipients to under-
go drug testing. Well, Gov. Scott signed the bill
Tuesday while in Panama City along with a measure
that bans the designer drug MDPV or 'bath salts.'
The new bill will require anyone applying for tempo-
rary government assistance to pass the test before
Each applicant wishing assistance will have to pay for
the tests but will be reimbursed if they pass.
In the State of Florida, there are about 100,000 peo-
ple in the welfare program 80,000 children and
20,000 adults. Duval County has about 6,000 who
will be subject to testing, according to reports.
Two Found Guilty in
Yousuf Bey IV, former Your
Black Muslim Bakery leader,
was convicted Thursday of
three counts of murder for
ordering journalist Chauncey
Bailey and two other men,
killed in 2007, according to
Thomas Peele, who reported the
story for the Chauncey Bailey
Antoine Mackey, Bey IV's co-defendant was convict-
ed of helping Devaughadre Broussard, who confessed
to helping hunt down Bailey and killing another man,
Michael Wills. According to the report, the jury dead-
locked on whether Mackey helped Broussard kill Odell
Roberson, the third victim.
The two convicted Thursday are both 25 years of age,
and face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The judge has scheduled sentencing for July 8. The
Defense attorneys have expressed their goal of filing
There were seven woman and five men on the jury
who began deliberations on May 23 after hearing from
over 75 witnesses during nine weeks.
According to the report, Bailey was killed while head-
ed to work in downtown Oakland, California because
Bey IV did not want him to publish an article telling
that the bakery was having financial troubles.
Chauncey was the first journalist killed over a domes-
tic story in the United States since 1976. He was 57
years of age and editor of the Oakland Post.
Broussard accepted a plea deal in exchange for his
testimony and is expected to be sentenced to 25 years

District Attorney ASK Tor
Help with Returning Felons
Sheriff John Rutherford, DA Angela Corey and Mayor-Elect Alvin Brown

At a meeting Wednesday morning with those who served with the
Jacksonville Journey, District Attorney Angela Corey made a plea to those
in attendance, to help keep returning felons from going back to prison.
She asked that those returning be told immediately by family, friends and
others around, that it is imperative that they get their drivers license
renewed. Many go back to prison shortly after their release because they
unknowingly drive without license. This is just one small step we can take
to help them stay free. MORE ON JAX JOURNEY PAGE B-1
Efforts by Leading Manufacturers
will help prepare 500,000 workers
for Manufacturing Jobs
Last year the White House launched Skills for America's Future to bring
together companies and community colleges around a simple idea: mak-
ing it easier for workers to gain new skills which would make America
more competitive in the global economy. Now, they have a number of
partnerships, as announced through a White House news release, to help
make this a reality, by opening doors to new jobs for workers, and helping
employers find the trained people they need to compete against companies
around the world.
One of the key partners of Skills for America's Future, an initiative of the
Aspen Institute that was launched by the Administration last year, The
Manufacturing Institute, the affiliated non-profit of the National
Association of Manufacturers, will announce an effort to help provide
500,000 community college students with industry-recognized credentials
that will help them get secure jobs in the manufacturing sector. The
Manufacturing Institute will also help enhance these efforts through their
own initiatives to bolster our nation's manufacturing workforce. This
builds on the Administration's strong leadership on manufacturing. The
manufacturing sector has led the economic recovery over the past two
years, with over 230,000 jobs added since the beginning of 2010.
While the manufacturing sector has faced real challenges in recent years,
it continues to be the lifeblood of the America economy. Now they are
forming a vibrant manufacturing workforce system that works.
The program intends to give students the opportunity to earn manufac-
turing credentials that will travel across state lines.
This will be a key partnership -an all-hands deck effort by government,
business, philanthropy and others.
The planned programs will help build the programs also in high schools
and provide opportunities for At-Risk Youth.
There are a number of sources that are already committed with collabo-
rators including The Manufacturing Institute, National Association of
Manufacturers (NAM) and Skills for America's Future.
There is over $2 billion committed to help train students and workers.

Official Notification of African American Farmers
About $1.25 Billion Class Action Settlement Begins
(Washington, DC) The Court-ordered process of officially notifying African American farmers and their heirs
,about the $1.25 billion "Pi'rJii II" class action settlement, In re Black Farmers Discrimination Litigation, is
Class members should visit www.BlackFarmerCase.com or call 1-877-810-8110 for complete information,
including the detailed notice, key dates, and claims-filing information. Media are requested to include the toll-free
number and website in articles about the Settlement.
African American farmers around the country who tried to file a claim in the 1999 Pigford Settlement but were
unable to receive a decision on the merits because their claims were late are now receiving information about their
legal rights and options under the Settlement by postal mail. A comprehensive paid published notice program will
complement this direct notice. The program will include a nationwide radio advertising campaign, including heavy
focus on areas where large numbers of class members are believed to live. A Summary Notice will also be published
in a variety of print publications including African American newspapers, general market daily and community
newspapers, and farming and ranching trade publications. Finally, online ads will appear on a variety of websites.
The plaintiffs and USDA announced the proposed settlement in late 2010 and President Obama signed the bill
authorizing payment of the Settlement on December 9, 2010. If approved by the Court, the settlement will resolve
discrimination claims related to USDA farm loans and other benefits. The proposed settlement includes $1.25 bil-
lion for cash payments and loan forgiveness for class members who file valid claims. Class members eligible for the
Settlement are African Americans who farmed (or attempted to farm) between January 1, 1981 and December 31,
1996; were prevented from applying for or were denied a USDA farm loan during that period or were given a loan
with unfair terms; and who filed or attempted to file a late claim between October 13, 1999 and June 18, 2008 in
the original Pigford case that was never considered because they tried to submit it after the late claim deadline. Heirs
or kin of people who fit this description but have since passed away may also be class members.
Class members' rights may be affected by the Settlement even if they do not act. Those who wish to object to
the Settlement must do so by August 12, 2011. The deadline for filing claims under this Settlement may be as early
as February 28, 2012. The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia will consider whether to grant final
approval of the Settlement at a hearing in Washington D.C. on September 1, 2011 at 9:30 a.m.

"The Jacksonville Journey has demonstrably low-
ered the crime rate in our city significantly since 2008,
which shows a strong return on investment for these
programs. The kids we save through the Journey's pro-
grams are our future, and so I will continue to be a
strong proponent of prevention and intervention and
build upon Mayor Peyton's legacy through the
Jacksonville Journey. --Mayor-elect Alvin Brown
The Jacksonville Journey: Take a step, a compre-
hensive communitywide initiative aimed at stemming
and reversing the flow of crime in Jacksonville began
December 2007 under the chairmanship of Curtis Hart
and former State Senator Betty Holzendorf. The last
meeting before Mayor Elect Brown take office was
held with the theme "Delivering on the Promise of a
Safer Jacksonville." During a 2 year period of violent
crime and murder, shooting deaths of young people and
children, Jacksonville became known as "The Murder
Capital of Florida ". Mayor Peyton pulled together a
group of community leaders, concern citizens, law
enforcement officers, and experts in helping communi-
ties solve problems to come up with solutions. A plan
of action was put in place that not only addressed the
presence of police on the streets, but the root cause of
crime through prevention, rehabilitation and targeted
intervention. Funding for The Journey was given in 4
areas divided into 4 time periods. The first area:
Increasing Police Presence and Eliminating Crime,
included The JSO office with Operation Safe Streets
and a "door -to -door approach; Municipal Code
Compliance Division that provided a way to eliminate
blight and unsafe places that provided a place to deal
drugs and other criminal activity; Local Initiatives
Support Corporation, a community revitalization strat-
egy for real estate development groups; Family
Foundations/1000 in 1000 to give assistance for finan-
cial education and management services for Duval
County Residents. The second area focused on Felon
Re-entry. This was an Ex-offender Employment
Program providing job placement service. The
Jacksonville Re-entry center is now a required first
stop upon returning to Duval County; Ex-offender
Training and Re-entry Services, programs that pro-
vide job readiness training and educational support.
The third area "Keeping Kids Safe and Productive"
include Alternative to Out-of-School Suspension
(ATOSS); Team Up, Early Literacy, Youth Gang
Intervention, Summer Camp, Summer Jobs Program,
Juvenile Assessment Center and Jacksonville
Commitment Scholarship Program. The fourth area is
Capital Funding -Year One Only that included
Neighborhood Job Opportunities Town Centers,
Repair Neglected City Assets and Community Centers
Management Services. The four time periods showing
allotted dollars were 2008-2009 the first nine months
$30, 997,895 million dollars. The second period 2009 -
2010 $19,681,499 million, the third period
$12,113,969 million and the fourth period a
$10,670,918 million proposed budget.
These programs and budget gives you the commu-
nity the chance to answer the question about deliver-
ance on the promise of a safer Jacksonville. Let your
voice be heard and your thoughts be known. Let us

tions you want the

Republican Party members on the national, state and
local levels are launching all out attacks on voters, vot-
ers rights and voting laws.
The devilish plots to disenfranchise voters is an
attempt to change the election process to insure future
victories by puppets of the military industrial and com-
By the time of the 2012 elections, voting dates will
be changed, voter registration procedures will be
changed, absentee voting processes will be changed
and, if they have their way, voting numbers will be changed.
Passing laws that will benefit incumbent elected officials and assist one politi-
cal party or another is nothing new. Democrats have done it too. However, this cur-
rent effort to change voting laws and voting outcomes is nothing less than massive.
Let's see. If you change residency requirements for voting registration, who
does that impact? Students. And guess which party most students voted for.
If you change times and requirements for early voting, who does that impact?
These law changes affect every voter by making voting less convenient.
If you change voter identification requirements and residency requirements it
would also result in less voting, lower turnouts and mute the voices of millions o
But God works in mysterious ways!
The GOP attack on the current voting system is a rush to judgment that may
resemble a double-edged sword and cut both ways.
Instead of helping to elect more Republicans by changing voting laws,
Republicans may end up hurting themselves!
Can I prove that? Yes!
The Republican Party was already more politically technological than
Democrats, more scientific than Democrats, more creative than Democrats and
more politically vigorous than Democrats.
Republicans are currently better than Democrats at fund raising, better with
direct mail, better with robo-calls, better at generating absentee votes, better at
grinding home their political messages and better at hiring and utilizing profession-
al consultants and advisors.
So when the Republicans decided to change every political law that they could,
they may have hurt the Republican candidates that were good at generating votes
the way the laws were.
Time will tell but regardless of the laws, new or old, the candidates that win elec-
tions are the candidates that get the most votes.
The Republican Party couldn't win a rat race if the Democratic Party could turn
out voters that are registered as Democrats because there are more registered
Democrats in the United States than there are registered Republicans.
But oh, American political parties are tricky. Sometimes if you take away the
party affiliation, you can't tell a member of one major political party from a mem-
ber of the other party.
Both parties seek to have candidates that are conservative, both parties seek to
have candidates that are wealthy and both parties seek to have candidates that
desire to support big business more than they support the American masses.
Yes, I say we've been twisted, turned and misled. The people we thought were
working for us are actually working for themselves and against the people. They do
what they do to raise money, do what they do to get reelected and do what they do
to trick you.
No matter how many laws are changed, if African American voters go to the
polls, Black voters will decide who stays in The White House and who lives in the
whore house or the out house!
America's white voters are divided and if enough brothers and sisters cast bal-
lots, Blacks will decide the winning candidates in most election contests. (Buy

* Exposure to others in public places.
HOW TO PREVENT: Avoid exposure if possible.
WHAT TO EXPECT
* Your own observation of symptoms.

Real People, Real Advice
I met a guy a few years ago and we really felt a spark. I
was dating someone else but dumped him for the new
guy.He had also met another female at the same time. As
luck would have it, I said or did something that spooked
him and he started dating the other lady. I went on with my
life. After two years of staying in touch, his relationship
ended and he's back. He's still friendly with this ex-girl-
friend and I'm scared to go back for fear he'll do the same thing again. What do
Confused Sacramento, CA
This isn't the only man you can have a relationship with and I suggest you look
elsewhere. If he dumped you the first time for someone else, he'll do it again.
However, if you're still feeling the spark, observe him much closer and take your
time before getting too serious. A woman's sixth sense is real. If your gut feeling
is telling you to run or something's not right, spare yourself some pain and follow
I feel there's a difference between honesty and not telling the whole truth in a rela-
tionship. My husband has the tendency to leave out important facts. I've learned
that he'll tell me what he wants me to know and when I find out other things, he
claims he forgot. How do you forget that you have a child, how do you forget that
you got fired and how do you forget you have a wife. In other words, he's living
a double life and I don't know what to do?
Carol Charleston, SC
Your marriage is missing trust and communication which are the strongest staples
for a solid relationship. There are also some issues with you that may cause your
husband to be intimidated so he's forced to lie about everything. However, there
are no excuses for his double life in which he has committed adultery. The both
of you need to invest in a therapist to sort out your issues, organize your mess and
clear the air of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personalities.

THE 2011 NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
THE 2011 NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks are hoping to be able to derail the hopes
of the new look Miami Heat's championship aspirations. But if they don't come up
with a few must haves; their chances don't seem very good.
First of all there is the obvious must have... The Mavericks must have someone other
than Dirk Nowitzki step up late in games to close out strong. Dirk will be expected
to carry the offensive load as the centerpiece of the Mav's offensive philosophy. The
Mav's offense is system oriented and designed to put Dirk in prime position to score.
As teams seek to elimi-
nate Dirk as an option by
double and sometimes L- A L
triple teaming him; Dirk
is also counted on to dis-
tribute the ball to the
open player. Dirk's 7ft
frame enables him to
easily do both.
The problem for the
Mavericks against the
Heat is the fact that the
Heat has the athletes to
play one on one with
Nowitzki and still cover
the other players. So in
order for the Mavericks
to have a legitimate shot
at winning in a best of
seven series against the
Heat; others will have to step up in a major way. It is true that the Mavericks won
the regular season against the Heat by a margin of 2-0. It is also true that the Mav's
are a legitimate championship caliber team who easily won the western conference.
The problem is that the regular season wins came early in the season while the Heat
were still learning to play together; an issue that they have since resolved. And the
western conference this year was not exactly the power conference. The Mavs must
also find an answer to the Heat defense which has suffocated teams throughout the
playoffs in route to a 13-3 record and are undefeated in the extremely loud and hos-
tile confines of the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
The Big 3 of the Miami Heat are poised to realize their goal of winning a NBA
championship. The trio sacrificed millions of dollars, individual egos, and even pos-
itive popularity to the end of getting to this point. Now all that stands in their way is
Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks are the best team out of
the western conference and easily proved it during the playoffs.
The Mavericks also play good defense. As a matter of fact, the zone defense
employed by the Mavericks gives them their best chance against the Heat. The zone
defense forces teams to
live by the jump-shot
because it effectively
takes away the paint
when played well; no
other team in the league
plays the zone as close
to perfection as the
The reality of this
championship series is
that the Heat simply
have the edge in talent.
They have Wade, James,
and Bosh. And if that
wasn't enough; they
now have a healthy
Udonis Haslem and
Chris Miller who missed
much of the regular sea-
son with injuries. Dirk Nowitzki said early in the season that the Heat had the best
team in the league on paper, but then backed off of his comments after beating the
Heat in the 2 regular season meetings. The difference in Miami now is that the team
has had time to gel. They rolled to a 58 win regular season and amassed a 13-3 play-
off record, securing home court advantage in the finals. And last but not least, the
closer for Miami have finally developed the killer instinct they seemed to be miss-
ing early in the regular season. This team has an identity. They know who they are
and how to play together and to each others strengths. On paper and thus far on the
court; the Miami Heat is the best team in the NBA.
Bethune-Cookman football Assistant Head Coach Terry Sims is one of 20 coaches invited by the NCAA to its 2011 Expert Forum, which
operates in tandem with the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Convention at the World Marriott in
Orlando, Florida, June 16-18.The forum's focus is addressing the critical shortage of ethnic minorities in head football coaching positions
and help with career advancement, exposure and networking opportunities within the NCAA membership.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity to be part of the Expert Coaches Forum," said Sims. "I'm looking
forward to adding on to the information I have learned at previous coaching academies. The opportunity to be
around athletic directors, hear from them what they expect from their coaches, what they look for in coaches,
and gaining knowledge on the day-to-day duties of a head coach beyond the field; this experience will be
invaluable in my career." The NCAA hosts the 2011 program with a notable rise in the number of minority
head football coaches following the 2010 season, but from a total of 582 football programs in Division I, II
and III, only 5.7 percent employ head football minority coaches, excluding the historically black colleges and
The coaches who participate in the Expert Forum have expressed an interest in being a head coach at an
NCAA college or university within their current division or in another NCAA division. Diversity and Inclusion provides the coaches with
program sessions and networking opportunities with current head coaches and athletic administrators who have hiring responsibilities or
influence. The focus of the program centers on ethnic minority football coaches, however, football coaches of other ethnicities have also been
invited to participate.
Those elite coaches invited will work through a very extensive program covering crucial coaching topics such as communications, fiscal
Terry Sims, BCU Asst. Coach responsibilities, successful program building, compliance considerations, and academic issues.

NCAA college football Hall of Fame. Sanders, who was an All American Defensive back for Florida
State from 1985-1988, glamorized the cornerback position. While at FSU, Neon Deion earned his nick-
name by shutting down the best wide receivers on opposing teams. Quarterbacks would stop throwing
to his side of the field for fear of seeing Deion Dancing down the sideline into the enzone after making
an interception. To bait quarterbacks into throwing to his side of the field; deion would play off of
Receivers and cause the illusion that they were open,

The Florida and Georgia Salutes The Class of "2011"
By Angela Favors-Morrell
The commencement speakers at the 2011 ceremonies this year weren't advising graduates to take, they were advising them to give. More specif-
ically, to give back to the Community, the University, the School that has given them an education. This year's commencement addresses chal-
lenged the graduates of the Class of "2011" to make the world a better place.

Duval County Public Schools Improve Spring 2011
FCAT 2.0 Grades
Jacksonville, FL --- The Florida Department of Education has released the results of
the Spring 2011 FCAT 2.0 Grades 4-10 Reading and Grades 4-8 Mathematics assessments,
as well as the results of the Spring 2011 Grade 10 FCAT Mathematics and Grades 5, 8, and
11 FCAT Science assessments. Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) has shown improve-
ment in 11 different areas while scores stayed the same in 3 others.
"We are encouraged to see that our students are continuing to make progress", said
Superintendent Pratt-Dannals. "These scores are proof of the hard work and dedication of our
students and teachers."
The results for the 2011 FCAT 2.0 show improvements throughout the district. Grades
six, and eight through ten all show one-point gains in reading scores, while mathematics
scores either rose or stayed the same for grades four, five, seven and ten. Science scores also
showed improvement for students in the fifth grade.
The shining stars in this year's results are Pinedale elementary who improved their
scores overall by 139 points over last year. Ortega improved by 97 points, St. Clair Evans by
74 points, Long Branch by 70 points, S.P. Livingston by 58 points, and Biltmore by improved
54 points overall
With the release of the 2011 FCAT 2.0 scores, the district has 20 days to review any
inconsistencies in scoring. School grades will then be determined and should be released
sometime in late June for elementary and middle schools, with high school grades expected
sometime in October or November.

Jacksonville, FL One of Duval County Public Schools'
middle schools, Southside Middle, has been accepted as an In-

Thus far, Southside Middle has fulfilled the first two steps by
completing both the school information form as part of the con-
sideration phase, and the Application form part A required for
the request for candidacy.
Following authorization, Southside Middle will go
through an evaluation process that takes place on a regular
basis to ensure that the standards and practices of the pro-

Ongoing Case of 12-Year-Old Murderer
12-year-old, Cristian Fernandez,
recently was charged with first-degree
murder after beating his two-year old
brother, David Galarriagio, to death,
leaving him bruised with a fractured
skull and a bleeding brain.
Fernandez confessed to the beat-

mother Biannela Susana, 25, left the

Man Doesn't Pay 50 Cent Transit Fare Leads to Big Arrest
An officer was at the JTA Bus
Terminal located at 201 West Union
Street working off duty. He had just
gotten off JTA Skyway train at 301 N.
Hogan Street also known as Hemming
As soon as he got off, he noticed a
man by the name of Amanuel
Zeratzion, avoiding paying the transit
box of 50 cents by just passing
Amanuel Zeratzion through the turn style. The officer con-
fronted the man asking why he didn't
pay and Zeratzion said that he did. The suspect did not give up
on his word, which resulted in a pat down from the officer. The
suspect had several concealed weapons (three eight inch non
folding knives). One was inside his box underwear and the other
two were strapped to each of his calves on his legs with elastic
The suspect was mirandized, placed under arrest, and
transported to jail. He was charged with Carrying Concealed

Protect People and Pet from the Heat
With temperatures rising and the start of summer just around the corer, it is
important that drivers are knowledgeable about the potential dangers of leav-
ing children, the elderly, or animals in a hot car. Vehicles heat up quickly -
even with a window rolled down two inches. If the outside temperature is in
the low 80sF, the temperature inside a vehicle can reach deadly levels in as
little as 10 minutes.A core body temperature of 107F is considered lethal, as
cells are damaged and internal organs shut down. Children's thermoregulato-
ry systems are not as efficient as an adult's and their body temperatures warm
at a rate three to five times fast than adults. The normal body temperature
range of a dog is 101 to 102 degrees. If that temperature rises to 106 degrees,
there is real danger of brain damage and vital organ failure. Anyone who sees
a child or an animal that is left in an unattended or unsupervised vehicle
should immediately call 9-1-1. Per Florida State Statutes 316.6135 and 828.12
both incidents are punishable by law.

Woman Arrested for Leaving 76-Year-Old Mother in Hot Car
Alicia Gray Scott, 48, was arrested after
leaving her 76-year-old mother in the car to go
eat at a Chinese restaurant with her daughter.
Calls were made to the Jacksonville Sher-
iff's Office reporting an elderly woman
slumped over in the front passenger seat of a
car. People around were very concerned about
this and one said that she even asked for water
and wanted to leave. Police showed up at the
Scene and checked up on the 76-year-old and
verified that she was in good condition, but she
Alicia Gray Scott was still taken to the hospital. Leaving some-
one in a car for long periods of time can be dangerous as heat builds up,
especially in the Florida heat. The car wasn't even running, so the the AC
was not turned on.
Scott was charged with culpable negligence. She was also
charged with aggravated assault for pushing the officers. She was also
tased for not cooperating. This is probably not anything new to Scott's
mother as her daughter said, "This is what we normally do with Nana be-
cause she gets tired."
SCouple Completes Journey of Visiting all 50 States and
,. Gets Killed in Ohio
SLiberty Township, Ohio- An elderly couple from Manches-
S iter, Connecticut, had just finished visiting all 50 states of
the country and ended with a tragic accident. Ohio was the
last state of their lifelong goal quest. The couple were walk-
ing over to the Denny's right across the street from the hotel
they were staying at until they were struck by a minivan. Keith Rodgers, 73, died im-
mediately and his wife Doreen, 71, died shortly after at St. Elizabeth's Health Center.
Police are still determining whether the driver of the minivan, a 64-year-old woman
from Vienna, Ohio, is at fault. The couple were walking through an area not marked for
pedestrians and the driver has not been charged yet. Other factors will be looked at such
as speed of the vehicle, inattention of the driver, or tuning the radio.
* Woman Shows up to Sixth DUI Court Hearing Drunk
Elgin, IL- Sandra Uher, 54, has been arrested for DUI for the sixth time.
She was charged after running a stop sign and crashing into another ve-
hicle. Police said her blood-alcohol level came out to be .30, which is
nearly four times the legal limit. It is illegal to drive with a blood-alcohol
level of .08 or higher in the U.S. On top of that, she was driving with a revoked license.
Uher has a list of DUI charges, including the one in 1999, where she was arrested twice
on the same day. For her last hearing, Uher has also appeared drunk for this occasion.
After conviction, she may face up to 30 years in prison.
Utah Man Pays $25 Medical Bill in Pennies
Vernal, Utah- Jason West, 38, was charged with a bill of $25 he
did not feel he had to pay. West approached this matter by re-
turning the hospital and dumping 2,500 pennies on the counter
demanding it to be counted. Paying in any amount of coins is
not against the law. Money is still money, but cops were called
and said that West's behavior served no legitimate purpose. West was charged with
disorderly conduct and a fine of $140, or 140,000 pennies.
Cheerleading Victim Forced to Pay $35,000 for not Cheering for Rapist Athlete
Silsbee, TX- The victim of this story was a cheerleader and she
S went to the same high school as her rapist, Rakheem Bolton, who
was an athlete. He was later pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and
was allowed to still play for the varsity basketball team. The victim
was later cheering for the team, with her cheering squad, that her
rapist was playing for. She cheered on the players, but refused to
cheer for Rakheem. She was told that if she didn't shout "Rakheem" like the rest of
the cheerleaders, she would be kicked off the squad. She still refused, resulting in her
getting kicked off the cheerleading squad. Her family fought and sued against the
district, which they lost. Then the high school forced their parents to pay their legal
fees which ended up to be over $35,000. The victim and her family are currently re-
ceiving nationwide attention and support.
3 Arrested for Feeding the Homeless!
The three individuals in this story have gone out of their way to do such
terrible things such as feeding the hungry. They were arrested after setting up in a
local park feeding a large group of homeless people. Unfortunately, they were ar-
rested by the police for violation of an
ordinance that was passed earlier this
year, requiring them to have permits.
The three that were arrested were
Jessica Cross, 24, Benjamin Markeson,
49, and Jonathan "Keith" McHenry, 54.
S, McHenry was the co-founder of the in-
Sternational movement called Food Not
Bombs that started in the early 1980s. Regardless of whether or not this was vio-
lating any law or ordinance, Food Not Bombs said they will continue to feed the
homeless in the parks and in nearby areas, whether they had any permits or not.
Food Not Bombs said that the city started enforcing this because having large
groups of homeless people were considered "unsightedly, annoying and bad for
business and an impediment to the local social/political/economic elite's goals of
downtown redevelopment and gentrification."
This generous act of humanity of providing to the needy is sadly not al-
lowed, simply over a permit. The Food Not Bombs members could each face a fine
of $500 and up to 60 days in jail. Two of them were released on a $250 bail, but
McHenry chose to stay in jail and wait for other legal actions to be taken.
