Charlie Crist: A Man Of The Peoplel applaud Gov. Charlie Crist on his first 52 ays in office. Indeed, he has made great strides in attacking the problems confronti.D.g him. Along with making certain the public has greater access to a more user-friendly state government, Crist has placed priority on addressing property insurance issues and taxes . Thus far, the governor has been able to work very cooperatively with both Republicans and Democrats. Appointing members from both parties to his cabinet, Crist has made diverse appointments of Blacks, whites, women, Hispanics and other groups to key positions in state government. He has waded into tornado-ravaged sections of Central Florida and provided assistance to and victims of recent storms. Gov. Crist .le'nded support to changing the lyrics of the Florida State' song, ,viewed by many Floridians as racist. Though little noticed; Crist made certain the song ''Way Down Upon The Suwannee River'' was not played at his inauguration> In fact,. Crist stated the j word and. plantation life him concern, the reason he excluded the song from the inaugural program. We thank Gov.

I School Bo8rd Gets It Rlghtl c .. ;::1: c'ongratulatiQns to the Hillsborough County School :aoard for finally realizing that the right thing to do is to have a seey.lar school calendar. Allowing a calendar to have only Christian holidays is discriminatory toward other faiths that are practiced by' both students and teachers. However, changing the times for school board meetings is not a good idea. Allowing students and teachers to take time' off for the religious holidays of their variou' s faiths is an appropriate action. Parents and taxpayers of other deserve to have opportunities to have their holidays. recognized on equal basis with holidays. Schools shotlld not be promoting or recognizing any one particular religious faith over another. We think you would agree with that. Furthermore, the idea to eliminate Fair Day in exchange for President's Day also sense. This change, along with leaving the day off for the Black Leadership Mu.st Win Quality Education (Series) :: .. :..federal getting the ultimate decision such as 'Brown us. _Board of Education," 1954. Quality for Black children, wherever, but especially in the South must be won through the efforts of leader. ship, did not acce .pt the challenge afforded by Thurgood Marshall two generations ago. I say to you today, that had individual Black lawyers during the 1970s through the end of court-ordered desegregation, prosecuted for that which Marshall and his teammates won in the "Brown us. Board" decision, Black children would be in education's promised lands. Hear me, please! Every school district in Florida, as an example, had an NAACP Legal Defense Counselor (lawyerL-'fl?-at lawyer had at his or her disposal a sitting federal judge to deal with any obstruction of justice as such related to the Supreme' Court order, "Brown us. Bqard." Any complaint filed in the interest of children, especially those in dur.ess would. have to make sense. But where quaJity education is concerned, few if any such briefs were filed by .court verified legal defense fund .counselors. Now that such federal court orders no longer exist, it is up to the leadership in Black communities chal lenge or prosecute in of their children before these local schoo.! boards, who have .. reall.Y. .been spared over those with "Brown us . Board." Are we in the Black community not of municating to the Hillsborough County School Board the educational objec tives and goals desirable for our children? Can we elect at least one representative on the school board who can communicate such needs to the majority? There Is No Greater Love a special bond. It is .the kll_l.d of love that is unraveled by any other. It is often the kind of love where one would be willing to die' for the other. : ;. .:. . : Art'oy found himself.-in harm's way trying to de(end his mother from a knife attack. say. his heroic actions probably saved his mothel-'s life. It have seemed l*e a nightmare for lO-year-old Damar Warburton last Saturday night. He ni.ust have been frightened beyond belief to see his stepfather allegedly stabbing his moth er. Police reports said the, ? youngster sustained 18 stab wounds as a result of the attack. They say he tried to get help at least twice; but the aggressor snatched him back inside, punched him in the face, and stabbed him. But Damar knew that his mother was in trouble and only "he could her. He knew. t'P.at he had,..fb get help.' This child suddenly found himself iri a ; growri 'up situation facing grown up .decisions: He m,aae an.extraordinarily brave He left his mother,. escaped and .'got help. And as a result, his mother's life was probably saved. , This young child should be praised for his actions. He didn't know that he could have died from his wounds. All he knew what that some one was trying to hurt his' moth.er and he went into action. There is no greater love than what he displayed. He is truly a hero. However, someone should also make sure that he processes this unfortunate situation \:orrectly. )f -not handled corre.ctly ,' It could very w:ell haunt him for the rest of his life: hi the days : following the incident; he has probably had more attention than he cim handl'tJ-J''B'ttt''\vhen the dust 'tiiid. ='life ''returns -to make sure he' fulli 'tinderstands that there nation for evil and that bad 'things sometimes happen to good people --even cQ.ildren. Strawberry Festival on the calendar, is a win-win situation for bo.th the Fair Authority and the Strawberry Festival Committee. Few parents, politicians and citizens would contest such a calendar change. .. .. On the other hand, we vigo'rously oppose any attempt by School Board officials to change their meetings from evening to daYtime. Most parents work during 'the day, and. would be burdened financially to appear before the Board during daytime hours. Instead, simply changing how the agency is structured could prevent teachers and parents from having to wait long hours .to speak. City Co'lJ.ncil the County Commission allow public commentary early in their agendas. We suggest the School Board go back, re-discuss it and coni:e back

Basketball Coach Reflects On Loss Of Team Manager BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer King High School girl's basketball coach Nia Campbell said as a first year coach, she's had to deal with a lot to get her team ready for competition. Not even Ms. Campbell was prepared when she and her team were told about the death of their i4-year-old team man ager, Stephanie Saffold. Stephanie passed away last Monday after complaining about a problem with her throat. Her mother; Stevonia Allen, sald everything happened so quickly and without warning. She said she doesn't know why her daughter died. Ms. Campbell said it was pretty rough on the team when they got the news. "The girls tried to honor her by playing hard their next game, but you could see it was on their minds. "She was an amazing girl. She'd sit there doing her stats and cheering for the team. Everyone thought she was very smart with. a quirky sense of humor. She was very dedicated and traveled with the team." Ms. Campbell said no one knew Stephanie had been sick earlier "Her death is tough for me, and I knqw it's tough for the .. STEPHANIE SAFFOLD .. King High team manager died suddenly girls. This is the first time they've had to deal with some thing like this. "One of our players was very close to Stephanie and will speak at the services. Stephanie was very smart, bright, and it's great to see a student with so much to give. Her mother is also amazing and very supportive. She actually thought enough to come a -nd console the girls. That's very special. It's amazing the strength she displayed, and when you see her mom, you quickly understand why Stephanie was so special."

HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer For many years, organizations and individuals have placed a special emphasis on voter education and participation. But despite those efforts, results on Election Day in the African American community have been less than desired. However, Mrs. Marion Cole, President of the Tampa Chapter of the National Coalition of_ 100 Black_ Wopien, launc.hed a c-ampaign duri-ng the last_1election io tion to the to registeFand to vote. Acting on an idea by Mrs. Dee Merritt-BeU, the organization partnered with the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office for the first time last year. The project is being referred to as "Driving Ms. Hamer." As part of the "Get Out The Vote" campaign, members of the organization have commit-ted to driving one woman under the age of 30 and one woman over the age of 65 to the polls during the Early Voting for the City of Tampa Municipal Elections. The organization and the Supervisor of Elections Office is asking churches, civic organizations, and concerned citizens to join them in this dri ving to the polls event. "The plan is to bring awareness, especially to women of coJor, of the need to have every vote count," Mrs. Merritt-Bell said. Buddy Johnson, Supervisor of Elections for Hillsborough County said, "It is an honor to partner with an organization such as the Tampa Chapter of 100 Black Women and I am confident this joint effort will be a success. Mrs. Cole said, "Everything is politically based I don't know what it is going to take to get people to realize that every vote counts.

They have plenty of time to develop because they are 9th graders Two of them I,>lay for Blake High School, one for Hillsborough the other plays for Phint. Blake has starter Jade Givens and backup Leria Jenerette. Hillsborough has Khal Grubbs and Plant has Michelle Taylor. The players are. listed alphabeti cally according to school and not in terms of ability. They all about 5'8" tall. Givens and Grubbs are thin-ly. built while Taylor and Jenerette have a little more weight. All four of them are great ball handlers who. can see the court exceptionally well. They all can shoot .outside and they can penetrate and take the ball to the basket. They demonstrate excel. Hmt leadership on the floor.

RECIPES From TONIA TURNER African American cuisine in the United States was derived from a rich mix of culinary heritages, and from the situations in which Africans found themselves when they arrived in this country. African-Americans have always been and will always be versatile. Here are a few examples ... The roots of African-American cooking began in Africa where yams, okra, black eyed peas, rice and peanuts were cooked by steaming, frying, stewing or boiling. Some Africans lived on Caribbean Islands before arriving in America. There, they picked up the flavors of the islands, incorporating hot peppers and nut spices, such as nutmeg, into their cuisine. Traditional Southern dishes reflect the economic history of the United States. Southern cooking was influenced by the cooking of the slaves for their owners in the plantation houses. Cooking techniques and the use of spices brought from Africa were used to create wonderfully flavorful dishes. . Seafood and rice are the basis of much of the cuisin e of the Carolinas, readily available crab and catfish. African Americans adapted m?tny of the area into their own cuisine. . . . Creole Cuisine is the cooking of the aristocrats in Louisiana. The African Americans cooked in the kitchens of these wealthy homes, influencing what was served as well as adapting some of the Frerich cooking techniques of the aristocrats. The use of tom atoes and seafood are prominent in this cuisine. Soul Food is a popular term for the contemporary cooking of African Americans. While soul food began as slave cooking, the ongoing migration of African Americans during the 20th century has brought about distinctive changes. Many soul food dishes require the use of only 1 pot, as tools for cooking were hard to come by in the early days of soul cooking. Favorite dishes often rely on the flavors of hot and mild chilies, hot pepper sauce and the melding of all of these flavors with the juices produced after a lengthy cooking time. So continue to celebrate your heritage throughout the year, not only this month ...

Jamie Foxx was sued ... Wednesday by a fashion stylist who claims she was hired to dress the Oscar winner for several high-profile events and that he failed to come through with the agreedupon per diem. Freelance celebrity stylist Stacy Young filed suit against Foxx his Fox.xhole Records label Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, accusing him of failing to pay his full tab after she dressed him for the 2006 BET Awards in June and then again in July for a series of Miami Vice press junkets. According to Young's complaint, Foxx agreed to pay her $2,850 a day for her ser vices preceding the awards show and then $3,000 a day for what court documents refer to as "the Miami Vice agreement." She hasn't been paid in full for any of it, she . say. Young is payment' for services rendered as well as an unspecified amount to reimburse her for the "thouJAMIEFOXX parties" to work for Foxx. She also doesn't say how much'the Dreamgirls star has already paid her. The complete list of allegations includes breaches of oral and implied-in-fact agreements, promissory estoppel (trying to force him to pay up on his so-called promise, even without the existence of an official con tract), unjust enrichment (he looked that good on her dime) and leaving her with an open-book account for ser vices rendered. Foxx, who's set to wrap up a 19-city music-and-comedy tour Friday in Las Vegas and who recently announced the launch of his own Foxxhole channel on Sirius -Satellite Radio, was snubbed by Golden Globe and Oscar this sands of dollars in costs in season for his turn as a connection" with the gig; say'greedy gil-l-group manager in ing she "turned down Dreamgirls, but his awards-. employment offers from third show is hardly blank. -MILLI V ANILLI A movie about Milli Vanilli is in the pipeline, according to reports emerging from Holly-Wood . The film will detail the rise and fall of the late-'80s duo, who became international stars only to be exposed as pop frauds. Jeff Nathanson, writer of Catch Me If You Can, is understood to be behind the biopic, which has the backing of the group, claims the Daily Variety. Both Fabrice Morvan and the estate of ll.ob Pilatus, who died in 1998 of a drugs overdose, have apparently approved the. project. Nathanson admitted to being "fascinated by the notion of fakes and frauds, and in this case, you have guys who pulledoff the. ultimate con." He describes Milli V anilli, "You'd be surprised how many Americans don't know about Brazil's carnival. It's one of the most spectacular spiritual events on the planet," Jones said Thursday while doing prep work for the movie, tentatively entitled "Brazilian Soul." Carnival begins in Rio Friday when the mayor hands the key to the city over to the Rei Momo, or car-"' nival king. Jones said the movie would be shot on high definition video and directed by Brett Ratner, who is currently filming Rush Hour 3. The filtn would be shot both in Rio de Janeiro and in Salvador da Bahia. QUINCY JONES 1 The carnival in Salvador, a seaside city some 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) to the northeast, has become a growing attraction for for eign tourists in recent years because most of the action takes place on the streets, than in a stadium as in Rio. Jones who has been visiting Brazil since 1956, visited Salvador's last year. "This is life force music, that's why it's so powerful," he said. Busta Rhymes Considers -Judge's Pie.-NEW.

"We were fortunate to have personal testimonies by several ex-offenders giving proof that through Jesus Christ, a person could live free while in prison:' said Rev. Willie Dixon, one of the members of Ambassadors For "Being a law-abiding citizen is enough to keep a person out of a physical prison, but it takes. Christ to make one mentally and spiritually free." .. From The Heart Church Ministry and the Coleman Band helped the Ambassadors For Christ deliver a service at the Coleman Federal Prison. The Ambassadors also took part in a Black History Program at the Coleman Federal Prison Women's Unit. The group consisted of 14 people, including seven local ministers.

"Many mEpl admitted they were prisoners to drugs, sex, poverty, criminal activities and ignorance before being 'impri.soned," said Rev. Dixon. "We want to empower these men so that when they are released they can live complete and productive lives."

Before you lose any value in your home ask the investor to provide the following : 1) References: Ask to talk with people who have recently sold them their home. 2) Proof of Funds: Ask them to prove they have the cash to close quickly Many investors use a "Quick Cash -Fast Closing" tactic to get you to sign on the line then they run around town try ing to find someone to buy thei t contract. 3) Occupational License: Are they legitimate? Ask for a copy of their occupational license At the Rehabber's Superstore we have the cash to buy. and we can close all deals in 3 days More importantly, we can provide you with our credentials See our full page ?td in the Florida Sentinel to l earn more, or visit our website at www. rehabberssuperstore com (813) 728-8107 Kenny Rushing Publication Deadlines Tuesday Edition Friday@ 3:00p.m. Friday Edition Tuesday @ p.m. DON'T LET THOSE OTHER GUYS STEAL YOUR HOUSE!
