The 1964 and 1965 Bills must remain solvent. (TO BE CONTINUED). 1 I I I --------------------------------1 OughtTo Be A Lavv Against ltl : increasing acts of intolerance and hate crimes :in Florida, we are convinced there ought to be a Haw to protect Florida residents against acts hate based on gender identity. Indeed, once h_ate and intolerance get a toehold into society, they grow and fes-ter, infecting everything they touch. The City of Largo has recently fired a 14-year employee with a history of satisfactory to excellent performance evaluations. The employee was fired because he revealed his lifelong struggle .with his gender identity and his intent to end his agony by changing his gender to female. No doubt, Steve Stanton's dismissal was based on gender intolerance. Since 1997, hate crimes against the homeless, gays, lesbians, and transgender individuals have been o n the rise, with murders of transgender people accounting for nearly 20 percent of the total murders of the. combined groups. Silence on the issue has given consent to the perpetrators without question. Currently, there is no Florida statute or federal law that protects transgender citizens against discrimination in housing, employment or public accommodation. Hate crime laws protect against acts basea on disability, gender, race or nationality. But, gender identity is not included. That needs to change! There are .documented cases wherein numerous courts have ruled that there is no basis in Human Rights or Title VII of the Civil Rights acts for protecting transgender citizens. Nevertheless, every American .deserves protection from being evaluated based on any' criteria other than his or her ability and performance. Since courts have failed to protect their transgender citizens, it is time our states, cities and counties grant such protection. To do less would be.a form_oftaxation without representation. The results of such could lead to citizen rebellion. But" all is not insensitive. The State of Minnesota has a statute broad enough to protect all individuals from discrimi!lation based on gender identity or expression. Furthermore, the cities of Santa Cruz and San Francisco, California; Seattle, Washington; Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, Iowa; as well as St. Paul, Missouri, have ordinances that protect their transgender residents as welL Florida and its cities should nO-doubt join the list. Will She Ever Rest In Peace? : :nna 'Nicole Smith :died at the age of 39 in motel room in Broward County. For weeks, the cause of her death was shrouded in mystery.' Now; it seems that the waiting is nver because the Broward. County Medical Examiner has ruled that the death was an accidental over dose of prescription medicine. That is ironic because her son died just five months before she did. The cause of his death was an accidental over dose of prescription and over the counter medicine. However, there seems to be no connection between the two deaths. Smith's son died in the Bahamas. Yet, it still seems. strange that both shared the same c'ause of death. Now that the controversy surrounding her death is over, one might think that the former Playboy Playmate would be allowed to rest in peace. But that is not the case. The battle still rages on among the contenders as to who is the biologica1 father of Smith's young daughter Sev.eral meri are claiming the right of fatherhood. However, this sudden desire to raise an infant causes eye. brows to be raised. It-makes you wonder if these men are truly concerned about the welfare of the child or about inheritance. When the dust settles, this little girl will probably be worth millions of dollars. And, while it will be placed in a trust fund, the courts will release a: sizeable amount of the money for her upbringing. At some point, a-DNA test will determine the biological rather of the child. And, the courts will decide what is in the best interest of the child But this saga that has all the makings of a 'movie of the week' has revealed something else. And that is the need for parents with underage chilto have a plan in writ-Continued On Next Page pleased to see Gov. _Chat:lie Crist a_qd the Florida Legislature moving head o n a $28 million plan to replace Florida's touch-screen voting J{i!'\'i! r:i:!''u .a..-.u.nes. They will be replaced with voter hand marked and optically scanned paper ballots. While voters can look forward to the paper ballots in the 2 008 fall elections, once again Florida voters will be forced to use the current touch-screen voting machines during the early 2008 Presidential Primar.ies. However, every Florida county having a standardized voting mechanism by September 2008 should bring a greater degree of confidence in our state's election process._ Recent news reports that the makers of the touch-screen voting machines used in Sarasota County during last election were aware of potential problems with the machines. This further eroded voters' trust in the outcome of the Vern Buchanan, and Christine Jennings Congressional Race election results. As you may recall, more than 18,000 votes cast in that race were not recorded by the voting machines. Crist's plan for a change to paper ballots also includes a requirement that early voting sites be outfitted with "print on demand" ballots that are customized for the voter's precincts. Crist projects that 99 percent of all ballots cast by Floridians will be physically marked by voters themselves, instead of by a machine. Yes, it's time for the State of Florida to protect its transgender citizens. With impunity, they should be able to work and secure housing without being discriminated against, harassed or punished. Indeed, there ought to be a law on the Florida books to protect all of its citizens. The W fact that it is lacking is another mark against our.claim to be a democracy, "indivisible, with justice for all." Piease pass it on. However, until that time, we encourage our readers and voters to make certain the touch-screen voting machine records your vote as you have marked it, by checking the final ballot closely before exiting the voting booth. Missed and uncounted votes in the 2000 Presidential elections, and the 2006 fall elections have made Florida the brunt of many jokes regarding our voting process, and have caused many voters to grow distrustful of the process. Therefore, we congratulate Gov. Crist and the Florida Legislature for working together to return trust and credibility to Florida's elections. Charlie, thus far, so good! Pass it on!

'1-l'hi :t' Mal WARNING!!!!! Since running my "3 Days Cash For Your Home" ad there have been reports of other copy-cat real estate investors trying to manipulate people with empty offers of quick cash and fast closings. There are few legitimate Tampa companies that can honor such offers. Rehabbers Superstore is the real deal. 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 trying to find someone to buy their contract. 3) Occupational License: Are they legitimate? 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 ad in the Florida Sentinel to learn more, or visit our website at: www.rehabberssuperstore.com (813) 728-8107 Kenny Rushing DON'T LET THOSE OTHER GUYS STEAL YOUR HOUSEl Cash In 3 Days For Your Vacant Lands, Lots Or Acreage.
