a scorpion biologist, and Hendrixson admired his ability to share his passion for scorpions with his students. He decided to share his knowledge as well. At 24 and volunteering at the Natural History Museum in Denver, Hendrixson moved on to East Carolina University in North Carolina, where he got his doctorate in evolutionary biology in 2006. Millsaps has been a wonderful fit for Hendrixson. He wanted to teach at a smaller school where he would be able to share his enthusiasm for his field in close contact with the students. The small class sizes at Millsaps help him know the students personally, and Hendrixson loves the friendly atmosphere. “The knowledge we gain is useless unless you’re sharing it with other people,” he says. An avid runner, Hendrixson lives in Ridgeland with his wife, Krissy Rehm. The two enjoy their proximity to the multi-use trails and the Natchez Trace. Hendrixson had a millipede named after him, Hendrixson’s mimic millipede, a species he discovered in eastern Tennessee. He says his favorite spider is an unnamed species of tarantula from southern New Mexico. As part of his research, the National Science Foundation has tasked him with naming it. “Tarantulas just have so much charisma,” he says. “Nobody has a neutral reaction to a tarantula.” —Sadaaf Mamoon

He may not be able to shoot webs out of his wrists, but Brent Hendrixson is a real-life “spider man.” When he was a child, his mother would be hard-pressed to find him inside the house. Hendrixson spent almost his entire childhood neck-deep in the abundant ponds and marshes of his native Thornton, Colo. He loved being outdoors, looking for critters. Spiders are undoubtedly Hendrixson’s favorite animals. “I’ve always been extremely interested in the creepy crawlies that most people turn their heads from,” he says. At 34, he still has a passion for terrestrial arthropods. Hendrixson has been an assistant professor at Millsaps College since August 2008, teaching biology and zoology courses and running a field research program to identify genetic species-level diversity in tarantulas. Hendrixson never thought he’d end up teaching. His ambition was to work in Colorado as a naturalist or a park ranger, so he majored in field biology at the University of Northern Colorado, earning his bachelor’s degree in 1999. In his junior year in college, Hendrixson heard research calling his name. “It was kind of a life-changing moment,” he says. “Suddenly, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my fondness of spiders.” Hendrixson went on to West Texas A&M University, where he received his master’s in biology in 2002. One of his professors there was

Stop Being a Regular

verywhere I go, I see people who are not satisfied with where they are. My friends in New Orleans can’t wait until they can move to New York or Japan, but people in Jackson are anxious to go to the Big Easy. Even folks in Chicago think it’s a boring place to live. Various people whom I meet or know always ask me where I want to live when I’m older or where I would like to travel. The truth is, I don’t really want to go anywhere. I would be fine living the rest of my life somewhere between Jackson and New Orleans (because I grew up there). Others are usually pretty stunned when they learn that I am not bored and disgusted with a life in Jackson. What’s wrong with these people? Why don’t they see all the opportunities awaiting them in this city? Sure, it’s smaller than most big cities, and we don’t actually have a movie theater within Jackson’s city limits, but there are lots of terrific things to do. Besides, the suburbs are a hop away, and they have other fun things to do (including movie theaters). I had a choice of going to college six hours away at Hendrix College in Conway, Ark., or three hours away at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn. Rhodes gave me the most scholarship money, but Hendrix seemed so much cooler. I decided against both. I chose Millsaps College here in Jackson. I couldn’t leave, yet. Not yet. I felt as if my life here was just getting started. Before graduation, I was stuck on moving back to New Orleans. I love the city, and I missed it. I had blinded myself to what was right in front of me. I couldn’t bring myself to leave Jackson, even though the other schools seemed to be perfect. Millsaps wasn’t even on my list of options at first. I visited Hendrix with my mom and grandma and stayed two nights during my senior year of high school. I thought the campus was beautiful. The classes were fun. I came back to Jackson and visited Millsaps with a friend

mainly because she wanted me to go with her. Nothing about the school really made me fall in love with it. I was just comfortable there. I could look out of the gate and see familiar houses and street names. Jackson may seem dull at first glance, but it is filled with opportunities. If it weren’t for them, I certainly would not have wanted to stay in Jackson for another four years. Going to school between the Belhaven community and Fondren allows for plenty of exploration. I can walk to

I had blinded myself to what was right in front of me. more places to eat than I can count on my fingers, and the Mississippi Museum of Art is a bike ride away. This summer I was able to discover parts of Jackson that I had never seen before through my Jackson Free Press editorial internship. We implemented a neighborhood project early in the summer. Each of us paired up with another intern to explore and write about one of the city’s wards excluding Ward 1 and Ward 7. My partner, Meryl Dakin, and I got lost in west Jackson exploring Ward 4. While we were there, we happened upon a newly opened produce shop that seemed to have a good story behind it. The owner, Frank, let us both have a free taste of a “Mississippi plum,” a small, green fruit that might have just been a baby plum. On Clinton Boulevard, we encountered a dog agility course. All in all, the trip was exciting and well worth the gas. Our journey is just one example of how easy it is to find new and interesting places in Jackson. I’m sure that the rest of this summer’s JFP interns can share similar stories of traveling through their assigned wards looking for newsworthy topics. I heard no complaints in the office, even though most of us got lost a time or two. People may not realize it, but people my

age (late teens, early 20s) really like exploring new things. That’s part of the reason that my neighborhood partner, Meryl, has gone to Turkey for a month. I know from overhearing several conversations on trains and in my family that older people like exploring just as much. Why then, do you still have areas of Jackson left unexplored? With such a multitude of people looking for things to do, boredom shouldn’t even enter a person’s mind. I love Frosted Flakes. I used to eat them every day for breakfast and dinner. After a few weeks of this daily routine, I couldn’t take it anymore. My stomach began to hurt, and now I rarely eat Frosted Flakes. I’m imagining that mall hopping each weekend must have similar effects. You just have no reason to only go to Northpark Mall and the adjacent movie theater each weekend. Sure, there are a lot of stores, some of which are locally owned, but I would imagine the experience gets stale. This is true about all of our routines. There is one routine, however, that I will continue to advocate: that of straying away from your routine. Instead of going to Cups every single day (sorry guys, I love you), why not try out Koinonia? It has its crowd of regulars as well, and those people need to visit another place, too. Before this year, and especially this summer, I was also a regular at Cups. I guess I still haven’t changed too much, because I only get one type of pizza from Pizza Shack. Being an intern at the JFP this summer was as enriching as ever, especially with the Neighborhood Project in place to get me out of the office. Just like last year when I interned here, I met new people whom I worked with to create Jackpedia. This time around, we also got to travel around the city and come back together and share our findings. After seeing that Jackson has even more to offer than I had resolved two years ago, I have been excited to find more hidden gems. I want to follow every path and make new ones while photographing it all. I also want to stop being a “regular” and let myself explore.

This generator on Edmar Place is a nuisance for neighbors. The generator has pumped sewage through above-ground lines since the city’s sewage lines collapsed in January 2010.

F

or the past year and a half, residents on Edmar Place in east Fondren have heard the continuous rumblings from a generator as it pumps sewage out of the ground and sends it to the city’s sewage treatment facility. In January 2010, the city’s sewage line that runs through the neighborhood collapsed. The city is replacing 3,400 feet of sewer lines.

The generator is blocked off by numerous orange cones and attached to temporary lines that run through homeowners’ yards. Residents, however, will soon have relief. On Tuesday, Jackson City Council members approved construction of a new sewage line at a cost of $269,359. Construction should be complete within 60 days. Dan Gaillet, City Public Works director,

could not say how much it cost the city per day to run and maintain the generator. “It’s a 24-7 operation so folks are constantly going out there and making sure it is running and has fuel. If it doesn’t pump, the manhole fills up and we will have sewage all over the ground,” he said. Gaillet, who started his position in May 2010, said finding the funds to repair the lines was only one part of the equation. He said acquiring the right of way from landowners held up the process. The city needed to acquire the rights to new property to reroute the line. “It took us much longer than anticipated,” Gaillet said. Troy Pearson resides at 3516 Edmar Place and said the noise and smell have been a constant disruption to the neighborhood. “The noise is terrible,” he said. “The sewer line the pipes run into is by my bedroom window, and I constantly hear it running. The smell is very bad. I don’t see how people have been able to stand it.” The city had asked property owners, including Pearson, to donate land for the new sewer line. Pearson bought an empty adjoining lot when he purchased his home two years ago and had hoped to either expand his yard or sell the lot in the future. The city will run a segment of the new sewer lines under Pearson’s property. PUBLIC WORKS see page 7

t 7:05 a.m. Aug. 2, Republican Executive Committee Chairman Pete Perry received an urgent call from a poll worker at the Wynndale Precinct in Terry. The poll worker told him that candidates’ names for certain races were not appearing on some of the electronic voting machines, and he needed more paper ballots quickly. This was the first sign that something was awry in the Hinds County election process. Gay Polk, candidate for Democratic state representative of District 73, also received phone calls from supporters saying they could not find her name on the paper ballots or on voting machines. Perry says that a technician must determine the cause of the computer glitches. But handing voters the wrong ballots isn’t uncommon at split precincts like Wynndale. A split precinct is where two different legislators represent its residents. Poll workers must verify the voter’s precinct, and make sure the machine displays the correct ballot or give the voter a correct paper ballot. Polk narrowly lost the race with 1,754 votes, or 49 percent. Her opponent, Brad Oberhousen, won with 1,867 votes, or 51 percent. “Any precinct that is a split is confusing,” Perry said. “That’s what happens in redistricting.” Polk said she plans to challenge the election results. The race that received the most attention, however, was the Hinds County Sheriff’s race. Incumbent Malcolm McMillin, who has served in his position for 20 years, beat former Jackson Police Department Chief Tyrone Lewis in 2007 with more than 60 percent of the vote. Lewis, who retired from the Jackson Police Department last year, ran an aggressive, grass-roots campaign and used social media. He also held several press conferences announcing his endorsements from city and community leaders. On the morning of Wednesday, Aug. 3, Lewis and his campaign staff, election officials, media, citizens and McMillin’s campaign staff filled the basement of the Hinds County Courthouse. The crowd, which fluctuated between 20 and 50 people throughout the week, gathered around a long table where the Hinds County Democratic Executive Committee sorted paper, absentee and affidavit ballots. The atmosphere was mob-like with people debating whether some absentee ballots should have been counted, and campaign supporters such as Andrew McMillin, the incumbent’s son, said he discovered affidavit ballots in the circuit clerk’s office that had not been taken into account. Whenever committee members moved ballots, an entourage of people would file

selves in the process. The Republican committee chairman says those who are losing campaigns can sometimes create confusion to cast doubt on an election’s validity. Perry, however, didn’t defend the Democrat’s handling of the election. “I don’t know if it’s intentional or crooked or fraud, but I will say that it’s sloppy,” he said. “But it’s going on in 81 other counties, too.” Once the election is certified, a candidate can file a notice to inspect the votes within 12 days. If the candidate finds more problems, he can file a notice of a challenge within 21 days of the election. Andrew McMillin said he did not know if his father’s campaign would file a challenge. Comment at www.jfppolitics.com.

Campaign supporters inserted themselves in the Hinds County election process.

behind them, many using cell phones to record the chaos. The committee permitted each camp in the sheriff’s race to appoint a neutral person to sit on a resolution board that would determine questionable votes and verify ballots. When the committee finished its determinations, it brought the ballots into Hinds County Election Commissioner Connie Cochran’s office to enter the ballots into the database. At that point, Cochran said she could not enter them because the committee had separated the ballots from their envelopes without organizing them by precinct. Hinds County Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Claude McInnis told Cochran she had given him instructions to place the ballots in one pile. “I did not say that. Do not lie to me, Claude,” Cochran replied. McInnis appeared to lose his patience and suggested that Cochran could find a way to enter the votes without having the correct precinct. “She can do a lot of different things. It’s a damn computer. She is a computer expert,” McInnis said. Cochran enters the data into the county’s database and then compiles an election report for the secretary of state’s office and certifies the votes for the Democratic Executive Committee to sign off on. “I really can’t describe what has happened,” Cochran said. “This (computer system) is set up to report voter returns by precinct. As long as we have been counting ballots, we have been counting by precinct.“ McInnis shelved the absentee-ballot situation for the meantime. He had other problems to tend to. McMillin’s camp

had pointed out that some precincts had a much higher number of voters signed in to vote compared to the actual votes cast. A crowd gathered around McInnis and Election Commissioner Marilyn Avery as they began to re-tally the electronic voting machines and found 222 additional votes from voting machines at Pearl Street A.M.E. Church. Cochran later confirmed that she entered absentee ballots into the database without having a precinct number for them. She entered votes for supervisors and legislators in the first precinct listed in their appropriate districts. On Sunday, Aug. 8, the Election Commission’s final numbers showed that Tyrone Lewis won the sheriff’s race with 18,788 votes, or 50.79 percent. Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin received 16,702 votes, or 45.15 percent. (He needed 50 percent of the votes plus one for a runoff.) At press time, the Democratic Executive Committee planned to certify the votes Tuesday night. On Saturday, Perry said that last week’s election process isn’t uncommon. He searched for any misplaced Republican absentee ballots and ensured that the number of voters signed up at the polls matched the number of votes cast. “We have to do everything they have to do, but because what we do isn’t going to change the outcome of any election, I don’t have to answer to 50 people every time I do something,” Perry said. “If it’s a close election, you are going to have this. “ Perry, who works challenging campaigns for candidates throughout the state, said that while counting ballots is an open process, party officials don’t have to permit candidates or supporters to insert them-

USGBC, Zahner said the fees are minimal compared to the overall cost of the building, and she was able to work with the school to stay within their budget. Registering a proposed project intended to be LEED certified costs $450 to 600, according to the USGBC. After the building’s completion, certification costs an average of $2,000. Jeff Seabold, chair of the board of the Mississippi chapter of USGBC and the owner of Seabold Architectural Studio, said LEED schools can save almost $100,000 per year in direct and indirect costs. He added that better air quality and safer building materials in schools can reduce instances of asthma and headaches, while more daylight helps students perform better. The Rankin County School District completed its administration building in 2009, which was then LEED certified silver. Gary LaRose, project manager for RCSD, said building a LEED school added less than 2 percent to the total construction cost of about $6 million. In about seven years, however, LaRose expects the school to make up for the added costs in energy savings. He said the building saves about $18,000-20,000 per year on energy. “We’ve got an environmentally friend-

ly building that is much safer and more comfortable for the children, and also saves on energy,” he said. Several universities in the state are constructing green buildings. The new Oxford High School, currently in the design phase, is also aiming for LEED certification. Jackson Public Schools registered its intention to make Bates ElementaryCardozo Middle School a LEED building in 2007, but did not follow through on certification. Fred Davis, executive director of facilities and operations for JPS, said getting the building LEED certified at the highest level was cost prohibitive, but they incorporated many green initiatives into the design. Davis said JPS is still looking into getting schools certified in the future, but for now they are incorporating many of the LEED standards and principles into new buildings and renovations. The green initiatives JPS is using include automatic hand dryers, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, paints with mold inhibitors and low-maintenance flooring that requires fewer chemicals to clean. Some states, such as Montana and Rhode Island, still do not have any LEED schools, although some, such as Pennsylvania, Florida and California, have dozens.

ities and counties around Mississippi are “going green” with earth-friendly schools. The buildings may not have futuristic solar panels or space-age architecture, but they do have technology that can save money and the environment. The new Hancock County North Central Elementary School in Kiln is set to be the first LEED-certified K-12 school in the state. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a certification system that rates buildings based on location, use of building resources, energy efficiency and other criteria. Sally Zahner is the Green Schools Committee leader for the Mississippi chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, which manages LEED. She is also an architect with Eley Guild Hardy Architects, which designed the school. Zahner said the LEED for Schools program focuses largely on energy efficiency and air quality to provide a healthy learning environment. LEED schools have filtered air, plenty of daylight and paint without harmful fumes. “There’s nothing harmful in the air when kids start school,” she said. Much of what makes a school LEED certified goes on behind the scenes. LEED schools have good acoustic quality with fewer distracting noises so children can hear their teachers better, Zahner said, and they are energy efficient to cut maintenance costs. “Most of it won’t really be evident when you walk on campus,” she said. USGBC offers four levels of certification—certified, silver, gold and platinum— which are awarded based on how sustainable, efficient and innovative the building is. Jon McCraw, business officer for the Hancock County School District, said demolition started last week to make way for the new elementary school. He expects the building to take a little bit more than a year to complete, and current plans call for it to be LEED certified silver. Although there are some additional costs to register and certify a building with

he Hinds County Democratic Executive Committee did an aboutface Tuesday evening when they decided not to let the media into the election certification meeting. Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Claude McInnis and his committee held a private vote to certify the Hinds County Elections at the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance Building on State Street. McInnis said that because committee members were meeting at a private building, the meeting could be closed to the public. We understand why McInnis wanted more control over the election process. At times the media amplified the six-day spectacle of finger pointing and confusion. But it was an undemocratic way to handle the process. We aren’t sure if he violated the state’s open-meetings laws. When campaign supporters and attorneys flooded the Hinds County Courthouse on Aug. 3, McInnis and his committee allowed them to have input into the process. Making the process an open one caused public scrutiny. Ballots seemed to appear from corners of the Circuit Clerk’s office. Sheriff Malcolm McMillin’s campaign noticed discrepancies in poll numbers, and gaggles of citizens and media followed committee members with their cell-phone video cameras. Hinds County wasn’t the only Mississippi county with election mishaps, but if you watched any of the local media outlets this past week, you wouldn’t know that. The media have a responsibility to accurately report on the election process and not get sucked into hype and confusion. And while we applaud McInnis for attempting to do the right thing and open up the process, he seemed to lose control of it. Members of the Democratic Executive Committee are volunteers and have the responsibility of overseeing the elections and settling ballot discrepancies. While we understand that this, in itself, is a big responsibility, the committee must have better organization and communication going forward. Election officials frustrated the media and the public by setting press conferences and announcement times and then never holding or making them. McInnis often barked at reporters who tried to get the facts. Fights about election results in tight races aren’t unusual, but the committee’s public-relations errors cast a negative image on Hinds County. We hope the Democratic Executive Committee has learned from their mistakes and will use this election as an opportunity to reorganize and demonstrate better leadership.

ncle “Money” Hustle: “When I heard the news about the United States credit rating being downgraded from AAA to AA+, I concluded that the weak economy had hit the fan. Folks already complain about the rising price of groceries, while corporations hoard their profits and lay off workers. I can’t believe this is happening. Those moneyloving, corporate-co-opted politicians will experience the consequences of messing around with the people’s money. It won’t be nice at all. “The O’Jays issued this warning years ago: For the love of money, People will steal from their mother. For the love of money, People will rob their own brother. For the love of money, People can’t even walk the street, Because they never know who in the world they’re gonna beat For that lean, mean, mean green. “To alleviate the current frustration and future violent outbreaks from people who feel they have been short changed by indecisive and stubborn politicians, I have organized the ‘Hustle for Survival and Sanity in a Bad Economy Future Entrepreneur Expo.’ “If you’re mad as hell and not going to take it any more, come to the east wing of the Clubb Chicken Wing Multi-Purpose Complex and join the Hustle family, the Ghetto Science Franchise Association and the ‘Lord, I Don’t Have a Job Center for Unemployment’ staff at the ‘Hustle for Survival and Sanity in a Bad Economy Future Entrepreneur Expo.’ “Get into hustle mode and learn how become an entrepreneur during very lean times.”

n his classic work on creativity, “The Gift,” Lewis Hyde likens artistic output to the gift giving of indigenous people. Creativity is a sacred thing to be shared and passed on, like a fine pipe of tobacco among some Native Americans, not something to be squirreled away or used up for personal gain. “Whatever we have been given is supposed to be given away again, not kept,” he writes. “Or, if it is kept, something of similar value should move on in its stead, the way a billiard ball may stop when it sends another scurrying across the felt, its momentum transferred.” Teachers will recognize the concept: To teach well is to pass on the knowledge we have been given to our students. In our deepest hearts, every teacher wants her students to do better than she has, to stretch beyond what she knows. The challenge is keeping the gift fresh, alive and in motion, otherwise we just teach dead, boring concepts, selections on a multiple-choice quiz. Every three months or so, the JFP sees a new crop of young (and not-so-young) interns eager to learn what it takes to be “real” writers, journalists and editors, photographers and graphic designers, event planners and marketing pros. Our not-so-hidden secret is that we give everyone a chance who has the gumption to walk through our doors for an internship interview. Here, as the folks working in those fields, one of our jobs is to pass on our gifts. Trust me: It’s not as selfless and grand as it sounds. Anyone who has tried to teach anything—whether to a classroom, a child or an employee—knows that to do even a half-assed job of teaching is sometimes frustrating and always time-consuming. It’s hard work. Some students aren’t ready to get what you’ve got, while others

think they already know better. Thank God that teaching is often gratifying; otherwise, I don’t think any of us would do it for long. I’m always surprised and humbled when an intern—we have had about 20 this summer—mentions my name in his or her writing. I’m often more than twice their age, and I’m sure some find me intimidating at first. Most of them know that I started here as an intern. What they may not know, until now, is that each of them is already an artist. Regardless of technical knowledge, someone gave them a gift. It is my honor to nurture those gifts (as others have nurtured mine), finding the delicate balance between being too tough and too easy, treating them all with compassion, yet always asking for their best work. I doubt that my intentions feel noble to them when I hand back stories covered in red ink. It’s a little like asking one of my yoga students to hold a pose for “just” another breath or two despite trembling muscles and sweat trickling into her eyes. For my yoga students, the advanced version of any posture includes turning the corners of their mouths up in a smile. For JFP interns, advanced learning happens when they take their red-inked story back and rework it, polishing off the rough edges, re arranging the pieces, finding the perfect word instead of one that’s merely good enough. It’s not easy for them, I know. It’s hard work. For those who embrace the challenge, it is my joy to watch them grow and learn and see their work published in the JFP or BOOM or online. To every intern I’ve had the pleasure to work with, thank you. And shine on. I expect great things from your gifts. Just be sure to give them away.

We Are Jackson

I

remember thinking, “If I had a lighter, I’d wave it through the air.� Taking in the majestic scene before me, however, I couldn’t have done much of anything. I stood captivated by the sheer power of a song, a ridiculous grin on my face. My world had just exploded, giving way to something better and infinitely more beautiful. The all-girl band on stage, Calico Panache, was rocking through the timehonored classic, “Killing Me Softly with His Song,� and everyone was singing along. I watched as people threw their arms in the air, swaying to the music with their eyes closed. The pink and red lights emanating from the stage reflected in their smiles. I opened my eyes wide to the glittering atmosphere of Hal & Mal’s where I was a Chick Ball volunteer. I was maybe the only person standing still. I watched as so many people of different backgrounds and ages and levels of income came together at the JFP Chick Ball July 9 to support the Center for Violence Prevention. I stared at their faces as they sang, laughed and danced in unison, the low rumble of voices flowing together into the music. I hadn’t known that this awe-inspiring level of fellowship existed in this city. Tears welling in my eyes, I knew I wanted to be a part of this scene that I wasn’t familiar with. For me, that packed room represented the best of a city I had never been particularly fond of. Born and raised in Jackson, I had always been biding my time, waiting for the day when I’d be free to leave and never come back. Growing up, I always found Jackson exceptionally boring. There never seemed to be anything to do, and nothing was ever going on. It was just this small city where the roads were bad, public school was supposedly scary, and you went to the movies if you wanted any sort of fun. I couldn’t wait to get out. I was anticipating the day when I’d graduate and go off to some hotshot college in a faraway city where things were happening. I never defined those “things� in

my mind. And, of course, I hadn’t yet realized that those undefined things were happening right here in Jackson. I’ve heard many call Jackson boring, and in the past, I would have agreed. I definitely wasn’t the only one who shared those sentiments. I can understand how it might seem that way for young people, but many adults feel the same. Granted, Jackson is not New York City, but I now believe that it has the great quality of being what you make of it. It is so easy to shape your experience here. Jackson is malleable, open to interpretation. If you want something to happen, you can easily make it happen. If you don’t like something, make a change. Fun is here, you just have to find it or make it. You can always catch music downtown, and the city offers dozens of ways to get involved in charity and community. Living in Jackson, we have the power to touch lives and change things, and I don’t think there is anything more interesting than that. A city like this one needs its residents to shape it, people: We are Jackson. The sense of detachment I’ve always felt for my hometown has completely melted away. Because of my race and religion (Asian American from Bangladesh and Muslim), I’ve always felt wildly out of place in the South. These days, I don’t feel any sort of conflict toward the city anymore. The scene at the Chick Ball changed me. I’m proud of my city for its potential, and I’m proud of the culture I’ve been shown. I’m no longer the person observing or standing still. From now on, I’m one of the people swaying to the music. Editorial intern Sadaaf Mamoon is a rising senior at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School. She loves film scores, Greek mythology and naming inanimate objects. Her spirit animal is a pink fairy armadillo. She contributed many stories and listings to this issue in addition to this column.

Break Out Your Biking Gear

id you bring your bike with you to Jackson but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do with it? The city and surrounding area have plenty places with beautiful designated biking trails. Only a few roads have bike trails, so be careful when riding in the street. Jackson motorists can be scary. Jackson has a growing cycling community with opportunities and safe places to ride. Each month, the Jackson Bike Advocates host a free community bike ride. During these rides, people young and old come out. You can visit jacksonbikeadvocates.org for dates and times. Most parks in the area, however, prohibit bicycles, skates and most other things that roll. Several parks in Clinton have shared paths. Robinson Park (205 W. Northside Drive, Clinton) has a quartermile shared path for runners and cyclists as well as a multipurpose field and an outdoor basketball court. Brighton Park (530 Brighton) has a half mile shared path. Traceway Park (200 Soccer Row, Clinton) has more than two dozen sports fields as well as a shared path that is three-quarters of a mile long. Learn more about these parks at clintonms.org/city/parks-recreation/parks. The Natchez Trace bike trail starts in Ridgeland near Pear Orchard Road. The scenery goes from nature to the community. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a beginning cyclist, the trail might seem slightly hard because of its hilly nature. Cyclists sometimes travel the Natchez Trace

hen I was younger, my parents would take me to the beach every school break. Dragging towelladen plastic bags, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make the five-hour trip to Pensacola, Fla. The sea and the sand were great, but by about the 10th trip, I was so bored with the beach. Long, drawn-out trips can be exhausting, especially when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re traveling in a tiny car with your entire family. Recently, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become an avid supporter of the day trip, a shorter, simpler alternative to overnight vacations. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to hassle with overnight accommodations, as the attractions are close by and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all over rather quickly. I wish Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d known about all the fabulous things there are to do in and around Mississippi. Maybe I could have proposed a change in my familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vacation plans. Check out what is within a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive from Jackson.

Recognize These Words?

S

by Alexis Goodman

outherners, especially Mississippians, have our own language. When I went away to the University of Southern Mississippi, non-residents of Mississippi were always looking at me sideways when I said certain things. For example, I say â&#x20AC;&#x153;yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;allâ&#x20AC;? a lot. In my defense, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;you allâ&#x20AC;? takes too much time. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just lazy, but who cares? I love the word! Here are a few more examples of words that we often like to run together, and some we cut short. A word of advice: Do not use these words heavily when you go on a job interview or to meet your boyfriend or girlfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents. 0ROLLYÂąSUREDEO\,ÂśOOSUROO\JRWRWKHVWRUH LQWKHPRUQLQJ 'ONNAÂąJRLQJWR:KDWDUH\RXJRQQD GR" 7ANNAÂąZDQWWR<RXZDQQDJRWRWKH PDOO" &ENTOÂąIL[LQJWR,ÂśPIHQWRJR$OVR &INNAÂąJHWWLQJUHDG\WR+HILQQDZDVK WKHGLVKHV ,EMMEÂąOHWPH/HPPHVHHLW 'IMMEÂąJLYHPH*LPPHVRPHRIWKH FKLSV )ONOÂą,GRQÂśWNQRZ,RQRZKDWDERXW \RX" 4HANGÂąWKLQJ3XWWKDWWKDQJEDFN 4OMAÂąWRPRUURZ,ÂśOOEHLQFODVVWRPD ,ILÂąOLWWOH,MXVWZDQQDOLOELW 9OÂą\RXU'LG\RXZDVK\RFDU" !IN´TGOTNOÂąGRQÂśWKDYHDQ\,DLQÂśWJRW QRPRQH\ #ROSSROADS&ILM3OCIETY 32%R[-DFNVRQ FURVVURDGVILOPVRFLHW\FRP The Crossroads Film Society sponsors year-round films, filmmaker workshops and the annual Crossroads Film Festival each April.

A Serious and Growing Problem.

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the nation. Over 11 million Americans fell victim to the crime in 2009, at a cost of over $54 billion. (Source: Javelin Strategy & Research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;2010 Identity Fraud Survey Report.â&#x20AC;? February 2010.) As thieves employ more sophisticated and high-tech methods, the number of identities exposed in a single theft increases dramatically, as does a consumerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level of risk. Every week, retail companies, financial institutions, and national organizations are breached, and the personal and financial information of hard working Americans is stolen. LifeLock, the leader in proactive identity theft protection, helps protect your identity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even if your personal information falls into the wrong hands. As a LifeLock member, if you become a victim of identity theft because of a failure in our service, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll help you fix it at our expense, up to $1,000,000. (Restrictions apply. Due to New York State law restrictions, the LifeLock $1 Million Total Service Guarantee cannot be offered to the residents of New York.)

s college students, we frequently experience periods of extreme sleep deprivation and high stress levels. Times like these render us a bit harried, when it comes to day-today activities such as careful driving and vehicle maintenance. Having car trouble of any kind can turn into an expensive problem. Most car dealerships offer auto repair services, but they often charge more than local shops do. Luckily, a couple of auto-repair shops in the Jackson area are willing to work with college students on the cost of repairs to fit within the budget of those striving for a higher education. Just contact these businesses and tell them about your situation, and perhaps you can strike a deal. -URRIEL´S!UTO"ODY0AINT

pounds. At the end of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program, legislators had lost over 3,000 pounds. Both Watts and Scott say that student diets arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as healthy as they could be although their schools offer healthy options. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The children are not going to choose the healthy choices all the time,â&#x20AC;? Watts says, adding that students who choose salads and other healthy food over less nutritious options are â&#x20AC;&#x153;few and far between.â&#x20AC;? Watts also says her students are not physically active. Their after-school activities mostly consist of homework, television and video games. Scott agreed. She says more parents have to provide â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for (their children).â&#x20AC;? She saw the unhealthy food some parents packed for their kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;big bags of chips and packaged cakes for snacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids would rather bring a bag of Cheetos than a bag of carrots,â&#x20AC;? Scott says. Watts and Scott say they will continue their healthy habits after the program ends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be joining the (Baptist) Healthplex to go with my coworkers,â&#x20AC;? Watts says. Scott has been researching gym memberships, and she and her fiancĂŠ are now running and walking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of become a part of me,â&#x20AC;? she says. For information on Paul Lacoste Sports, visit paullacoste.com. The Fit 4 Teaching program ended Aug. 4. A 5K race, final weigh-in and awards ceremony is Aug. 20. The free race begins at 9 a.m. at the state capitol building.

Clinton, Hinds County, Jackson, Madison, Pearl and Rankin County schools, in addition to the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools and Mississippi Head Start. At the end of the eighth week of the program, participants lost more than 2,500 combined pounds thanks to Lacoste and his trainers who want to do away with obesity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can conquer it, and we do it through teamwork,â&#x20AC;? Lacoste says. To help the participants make better eating choices, St. Dominic Hospital hosted a nutrition seminar and supermarket tour with Donna Speed, nutrition service director of the Mississippi Department of Health. Michelle Scott, who teaches second grade at Gary Road Elementary School, says working out leaves her energized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being on your feet all day is tiring, and now I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to bother me as bad,â&#x20AC;? she says. The program will help the participants be good examples for students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has a teacher that they love, and teachers have such an influence on our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives,â&#x20AC;? says Ashley Strange of the Cirlot Agency who does public relations for the Fit 4 Teaching program. She participated in the 2010 Paul Lacoste Fit 4 Change program for state legislators that received national attention after lawmakers lost 1,401

fter waking up before sunrise, nearly 200 teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and others who work in schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;arrive at Jackson State University at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 2011 Paul Lacoste Fit 4 Teaching Challenge that began May 30, sponsored by the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation. During the 10-week challenge, the teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daily hour-long workout began with a warm-up and stretches. Participants then went on to cardiovascular workouts, training for speed, agility and strength, and workouts on the track. Everyone then came back together for motivation and more stretches, and the hour ended with the team breakdown count: â&#x20AC;&#x153;1, 2, 3, NEXT LEVEL!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to some little camp that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tough or anything, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not true,â&#x20AC;? says Deedra Watts, a firstgrade teacher from Clinton.

aybe it’s all those lit classes in college, but theme is important to me—whether it’s in writing, in one’s wardrobe for the season or for a party. The past few weeks offered plenty of opportunity for Jacksonians to submerse themselves in a theme-based activity for a night (or day), and I happily joined in. Downtown residents and friends of downtown are well aware that one of our neighbors, Michael Rejebian (sometimes known as Tequila Guy) has a beverage of choice, and it is Patron. His commitment to the beverage runs so deep that for the past three years, he has invited friends to join in a celebration of National Tequila Day (yes, it’s an actual day) on July 24. This year’s celebration was bigger and better than ever. Thanks to social media, emails and word-of-mouth, the brew pub and patio at Hal & Mal’s (200 Commerce St., 601-948-0888) were filled with friends and neighbors enjoying each other’s company, food and the musical stylings of DJ Tony from Crazy Eddie’s, along with the liquor of the night. Of course, this being the South, there had to be a Tequila Queen. Jane Halbert Jones took the title this year and was rewarded with a tiara, scepter and sash made of Patron tags. It was an awesome downtown night enjoyed by all. The lesson herein is: If you love something, turn it into a party! Jacksonians will be on board to turn out and celebrate with you. Having sufficiently celebrated liquor, it

was time for some wine, and Bravo! Italian Restaurant and Bar (Highland Village, 4500 Interstate 55 N., Suite 244, 601-982-8111) was there to help, offering half off all bottles for the last half of July. Wine at a discount is a theme I fully support, so my friends and I took advantage a couple of times—first, with some girls, where we enjoyed some sparkling rosé, and then with some lawyer and politico friends, where we enjoyed some full-bodied reds. This was a great way to try some bottles that we otherwise wouldn’t. Cheers to turning out the wine cellar! Next up: beer. Though I do not profess to be a beer drinker, I’m not one to avoid trying, and the Top of the Hops Beer Festival at the Jackson Convention Complex provided ample opportunity. My friend Amie Whittington was my accomplice, and being more well-versed in the beverage than I, she led the charge with gusto. Most of the attendees were serious about making the rounds—as evidenced by their comfortable footwear and pretzels strung on necklaces (for sustenance or palate-cleansing, I assume). I was more along for the ride, noting various fashions and lack thereof (two words: fishing shirts) among the crowd and socializing. With demonstrations of food pairings and live music along with the beer tastings, there

was plenty to enjoy besides the booze. But I did end up finding some that I liked; turns out I’m a fan of stout. It’s been fun going all-out and breaking away from my usual cocktails, thanks to these events. While I have a feeling I’ll slip back into my normal habits, themes are always a good way to try something different. Here’s to finding your own, even if it’s just for a night.
