I need some understanding... I was under the impression that you could only have one public class declaration in any one class. However I now know that you can have a public class and a public static class declaration....This is rather confusing to me.. anyone want to shed some light as to why this is.?

The public static class would be a class inside the public top-level one, so it doesn't count. It's not like you can rip a nested class out into its own file.
The rule only applies to Top-Level not nested classes.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
