FEATURES Dr. Lyons 'Not Disappointed' By Loss At Convention ., :II c > > "'tt :II BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel StaffWriter However, Dr. Lyons said considering the cir-cumstances, there was only a difference of less than 300 votes between him and his opponent. On Wednesday member' s of the Florida General Baptist Convention casts ballots to elect a state president. One of the contenders for the office was Rev. Dr. Henry Lyons, former President of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. The convention was held in Fort Lauderdale. Voters elected Rev. James B. Sampson, of First New Zion Missionary Baptist Church of Jacksonville. Rev. Sampson received 539 of the 1,012 v otes and Dr. Lyons 307 votes. DR. HENRY LYONS By the time he had anno':lnced plans to seek the office, many of his constituents had already committed their vote. He also attributed his loss to the fact that most of his support is on the East Coast and that less than 10 churches in the Tampa Bay area are members of the convention. "While it is very much a part of my life, it is not my whole I am very thankful to be the servant teacheT at New Salem Missionary Baptist Church, where we are in a rebuilding phase. I am also very busy with Christ Alive, a national organization that I founded 21 years ago. So, I have a lot of things to keep me busy." When contacted by the .Sentinel, Dr. Lyons said, "I. was drafted into running in this election and I had a late start. I didn't start campaigning until July 2006 and my opponent had been out there for more than 3 years. "Although I didn't win, I'm not disappointed. I am very happy with the showing made. I still have a lot of support in the state. And I realize that I have a lot of baggage with my personal life and being incarcerated, as well as, with my late entry." When asked if he would seek another office in the future, Dr. Lyons said, "I really don't know at this point. I will weigh all of the options, see what's available, and then make a decision."

Opinions e,.pressed on editor ial pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writ ers. do not necessarily reflect the ed1torial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletin or the Publisher Ex-Felon Voting Rights Will Be Restored the time you read this article, the fate of the ight to vote for ex-felons has already been ecided. Governor Charlie Crist and his cabinet members voted yesterday (Thursday, April 5th) on the automatic restoration of civil rights to most felons who have completed their sentences. Gov. Crist, Agriculture Comm. Charles Bronson, Attorney Gen. B ill McCollum and Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink make u p the Florida Cabinet and the State's Executive Clemency Board. However, news reports projected that Agriculture Comm. Charles Bronson's vote would be the deciding factor on the issue. Bronson originally opposed the measure because he believed violent criminals (murderers and sexual predators) should be required to use the current procedure of applying for the restoration of their voting rights. That procedure includes a written application, and appearance before the Executive Board, and after a five-year waiting period upon completing one's sentence. That's still required. Nevertheless, the Governor's cabinet reached a compromise on the issue. There was no reason that an exfelon who has committed a crime without violence, should not be allowed to vote or should be made to. remain disenfranchised. For your information,.according to the sentencing project, a group that supports the rights of ex-felons, an estimated 5.9 million Americans have currently and permanently lost their rights to vote. Interestingly enough, many states already allow ex-felons automatic voting rights once they have completed their debts to society. Some states (such as Maine and Vermont) even allow prison inmates to vote. Nevertheless, a handful of states permanently prohibit ex-felons from voting all together. But that list contfnues to shorten. Florida has.joined the list of states who have"restored voting rights to at least the majority of ex-felons. In the meantime, we once more take off our hats to Gov. Crist. You're earning your keep. The people thank you. Pass it on. Senate Bill 529 Is A Loserl doubt; our readers have viewed television and radio commercials asking voters to call Arthenia Joyner, and ask her to oppose a Senate Bill (SB 529). Such bill would allow cable companies to select neighborhoods they wanted to provide services for, and would allow them to bypass other .neighborhoods that didn't suit their fancy. In other words, the. bill sponsored by State Representative Trey Traviesa would allow cable providers to select well-to-do communities and ignore poorer ones. As if that weren't.enough, Bill 529 has other less than savory conditions which we all should be concerned about. For instance, it deregulates the cable industry by removing the requirement that cable com.panies negotiate with local city and county jurisdictions for conditions that set standards for public access programming, community ec;lucation programming, customer service, location of cable lines and service areas. l The bill as introduced, would tran.sfer the granting of franchises to provide cable services to the State of Florida, which in turn. would be unable to require the cable compa;'lies to provide services to all' neighbor-Building Local Agendas For Local Offi .ces (Series) ed Black officials on the Tampa City Council, Hillsborough County Commission and the Hillsborough County School Board is setting agendas on issues effecting Black fami lies, and Black people in gen eral. Issues such as these should be on the weekly meeting calendar. What role do our elected officials play in that process? What opportunities are they given to help shape a given agenda .on a weekly or monthly basis? Of course, this. should not be too difficult to comprehend because we have done some observing, watching the weekly meetings on television of the Tampa City Council and other such local bodies. We have observed councilperson Gwen Miller serving as chairperson, putting motions in action and guiding them to conclu siOns. Actually, to facilitate this effort, it will take groups and organiz.ations in the Black community going before City Council, County Commission and the School Boar_ d presenting such issues effecting Black people. This is what real democracy is all about. When is the last time there has been serious sessions involving Black issues before M s. IRIS H OLTON the School Board? When has such Black issues been solicited from the floor by any elected representatives, Black or v.ihite? Nobody knows issues effecting the development of Black children in public schools better than Black educators, especially the retired ones. Has anyone thought of setting agendas for a fact-find ing study on drugs, and how they are distributed in the Black community? How do our young people get involved? How can the police get involved? And, how does this thing get and just keep going on and going on? Politically, we need to get involved.

Shaquanda Cotton, 14, .an The problem is Shaquanda African American girl was maintains that her actions were in self.defense, so it is highly unlikely that she is "going to be sorry" for what she did And, who can blame her if she's telling the.truth? I wouldn't admit to something I didn't do either. But, then this is Texas, a state where racial issues are a dime a dozen and as blatant as the rising sun. Remember James Byrd, Jr.,whose body was discovered after it was dragged behind a pickup truck on .June 7, 1998'? Well, that was in Ja:sper, Texas." And of course, to add fuel to the fire, three months earlier, a 14-year-old white girl was convicted of arson and sentenced to probation. In additli:ln to cr:; of racism, the teenager's mother feels the actions are retaliatory because of the mother's actions. Ms. Creola Cotton said sh" filed complaints against the school anJ thfl police department. And since Texas already has such a checkered past in terms of race n lations, it seems highly likely. This case twarrants following. hoods. Handling of complaints at'.the state level also reasons for concern. That's because of the additional cost $SSociated. with staffing a. state agency to handle such complaints. Negotiating public access returns to citizens of local jurisdictions for inconveniencing residents due to installing cable lines along public right-of-way is another issue of concern. . Indeed, we suspect this is a case of, "If it's not broke, don't fix it." Local citizens and governments have everything to lose with this legislation. A reduction in phone rates (that could rise again over time) to sweeten the deal would not make this deal smell any sweeter. Therefore, we urge Senator Joyner and our legislative delegation to turn off Senate Bill 529. Either that or make it accessible for all residents.

I Tampa Is Still The South! I ;;es, I know, last Sunday, the City of a celebrated the reelection of its second female mayor. Pam Iorio looked MAAAHVELOUS in her crisp suit and reassuring smile. Indeed, she said all the right things that garnered all the right responses. But at the end; when all the cameras were turned off and the crowd went home, we were left with the truth. TAMPA IS STILL THE SOUTH! Now, many of you will say, "That's not fair. How could you say that'?" Well, I'll tell you how I could say that. Chief Stephen Hogue just made two promotions in his police staff. One was Black The other was white. The Black officer was promoted to major, and I congratulate him on that, just as I congratulate his white fellow officer who was promoted to assistant chief. But due to the retirement of Gilbertina Wright, Tampa's first Black female assistant police chief, that left no African American presen;,:e in the. upper police echelon, for the moment. Now that moment is scaled. There will be no Black assistant police chief rn the . . Tainpa Police department, for a long time! Yeah, I know what you're saying. "That was not com pletely Chief Hogue's fault. Hogu e inherited a police depai:"tment ft:om a Black police chief who failed on almost every occasion; to place Black officers into posi. tions where they could --if qualified accede to executhe levelst" If you're sayiqg, you would he right-. But there are other things, too, .that bother me, and should no doubt, bother you. . We used to complain about our Black assistants-to-the-' mayor . Well, we stopped complaining when our current mayor: abolished that trad'ition, 'at 'least, in'her Instead, she installed a mayoral assistant whom' many f liK:en to'' Machiavelli, more so than to a mayor's assistant. Some say he has no honor. Maybe not! _:But Pam Iorio's reelection gives us pause to ques tion. "Tampa, how far have we come?'' Yes, we have ice hockey. Few other cities in the South can say that. W e even have a Black poet lau reate. Certainly, few Florida cities can claim that, let alone spell it or know what it means. Black faces beam out at us, over the televisi.on channels, and speak continu ously over the radio w9-ves. Black hands shake white hands and make fabulously successful business deals; a Black woman now chairs City Council. And Black dri vers can be seen any day of the week wheeling Hummers, Mercedes Benzes, Jaguars, and even a Rolls Royce or two. Indeed, a handful of Black folks even have residence up in New Tampa (or so I'm told)! But then the sun goes down and the costumes come off! You, yes, you! You know who you are. And you know only too well, what you have done! You have been utterly successful in bringing the experiment called Integration And Brotherhood In The City of Tampa to an absolute halt! You did it, day-by -day; step-by-step, on'e at a time. You did it by stepping into the school s and making certain our children were at each other's throats without their knowing the reasons why. You did it by keeping us adults within speaking-_ distance and working distance of each other, but no closer . You did it by cheapening words like "progress," "honesty," "integrity,". "truth,'! and ''positive com munication!" And then after you had sewn your seeds of discord among the so-called races and gender groups, you went home and had yourself a mintjulep. Hahaaah! You're slick, Tampa. You would have the world believe you actually want what's good for all your. people And you do, too: Unfortunately, what you think and what they think are two different 'things. I love you, Tampa. And I want you to love me. COLUMNS Are You A Registered Voter? l ;i;i'iiB!:i!j re you a registered ; voter? That is a ques .. 'tion that is more important today than ever before If you are not a voter, then you need to be Next year will be a very important election year. It will be important first of all because it is a presidential election year. It is a presidential election and the Blar.k vote will be important in determining who our next president will be. Usually Black voters turn out in large numbers for presidential elections. A large turn out is more impor-tant than ever before. For the first time, Black people have a serious African American candidate who has a real chance of becoming America's first Black president. Tha t person is Illinois Congressional Senator Barac k Obama. Wouldn't it be a shame if Obama lost the election because you did not vote? This presidential election is gearing up pretty fast. The year 2008 and the election will be upon us before you know it. To put off registering to become a voter is a dangerous thing. The way time moves so fast, the dead line will have come and gone before you realize it. Don't misunderstand me. You should not register to vote only becaus e Obama is running for the presidency. You should register and vote because African Americans need to have a v oice in who gets to be our next president. Blacks need to be eli gible to vote so that our issues and concerns will be brought to the table. We need to register to vote, and to vote to dis pel any ideas that we won't and don't vote. we need to be registered, and we need to vote in order not to get another George W. Bush. We need to vote in such large numbers that we will be able to send the message that the Bl ac k vote is a force to be dealt with. Black lead ers and Black people need to make it known that we will vote for the-candidate that will work to solve Black problems, and to deal with Black concerns. The march to the Supervisor Of Elections offices all over the country should start today, and continue until every eligible African American is registered to vote. We should get the attention of every candidate because will as to the huge number of Blacks that are registering to vote. Don't wait!

Our own government has been using fear as a silent weapon against us for years. It's no coincidence that we're constantly under some perceived attack.

HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer Several years ago, she was a wife, the mother of four with a fifth child on the way when she learned that .her husband was having an affair. When confronted, he did not deny it. Now, having lived through the experience, Mrs. Venoria McKenzie Mills has committed her story to paper in the form of her first book. Entitled, "Whatever It Takes, I Must Have This Man," Mrs. Mills will host a book signing on Saturday, April 7th, at Tampa Christian Supply, 2908 W. Hillsborough Avenue, frorri 1 p.m. until2 p m In the preface of the book she writes, "This is a part of my true life story, which was very painful. It was like a major surgery and a longterm recovery. When the wound is healed, it leaves a scar for life." Mrs. Mills said she had wanted to become an author as a child, but never pursued the idea. She became a wife and mother and went about MRS. VENORIA MCKENZIE MILI,S her life. After learning her husband was having an affair, she found herself having to analyze the sudden change that had taken place in her life. She recalls that the idea of writing about what happened to her came during theearly morning hours "When the Holy Spirit wakes me up and ministers to me. It was then that the title came to me. "At first I didn't write anything down, I didn't know anything about writing," she said. After a while, she began writing rough drafts and after a year, her first book came into existence. When asked why she wrote the book she said, "I wanted to show how good God is to me for allowing me to be here. I want folks to understand that when things happen in your life, if you put your trust in God you will get over it." A native of Jamaica, Mrs. Mills has lived in Tampa for the past 8 years. She was employed as a Medical Surgical Technician until an on-the-job injury left her disabled. Now, she considers her former profession as a hobbY because she likes to care for the elderly and the sick Today, Mrs. Mills is remarried, the mother of 6 adult children and mother to 12. She is the pastor and founder of The Glo1;y Team Reach Out and Touch Ministry International, Inc. She hopes that by telling her story, it will lead others to believe that with trust in God, you can survive the trials and tribulations oflife.

_ SPORTS Wizard's Hit Again Arenas Sprains Knee WASHINGTON--Gilbert Arenas knee bent the wrong way. He was just standing there, settling into rebounding position as Gerald Wallace drove baseline. When Wallace threw up one of those incredible, off-balance reverse layups, he crashed inadvertently into the left leg of the Washington Wizards point gi.lard. Down went Agent Zero. And with him, perhaps, the Wizards' hopes of achieving much of anything in the playoffs this season. Arenas' sprained left knee rendered nearly everything else irrelevant in the Charlotte Bobcats 108-100 victory over the Wizards on Wednesday night. The threetime All-Star will have an GILBERT ARE N AS MRI on Thursday to determine the full extent of the damage, but the recovery time from such injuries is usually measured in weeks, not days, and the Wizards have only eight games left in the regular season.

Bonds moved a step closer to Hank Aaron's home run record :Wednesday night, hitting his 735th homer in the first inning of the San Francisco Giants' 5 3 loss to the San Diego Padres, who got a tiebreaking two-run homer from Adrian Gonzalez in the eighth. Bonds sent a pitch from right-hander Chris Young into the 'first row of seats in left-center for a solo shot and a 1-0 Giants lead, pulling the slugger within 21 of passing Aaron's 755 Moments after the liomer, BARRY BONDS "735" flashed across the new high-definition scoreboard in center field and Bonds pointed to. his daughter, Aisba, and Sue Burns, the wife of late Giants ownership partner Harmon Burns who was honored on op ening day with a moment of silence.

It also creates a bit of a logjam. for the vikings at safety, where Doss joins veterans Darren Sharper, Dwight Smith and Tank Williams. It is expected that Doss, who is most effective playing close to the line of scrimmage, will challenge for the starting strong safety spot.

Jesus' work before the cross, on the cross, and after the cross is not something we should forget. In this week's lesson select-ed from the books of Revelation 1:12a, 17, 18 and John 20:11-16, 30, 31, we learn many different lessons that took place after the res urrection of Jesus. God does not do things just to do them. God does what He does for a reason and we must learn the lessons from COLLEdE HILL CHURCH OF {iOD I N CHRIST 6-tl.J NORTH 30TH STREET TAMPA FLORIDA :nolO ELDER CHARLES DAVIS PASTOR -COME AND CELEBRATE THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST BREAKFAST WILL BE SERVED IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THIS SERVICE God.'s Side _.rogressive Missionary _Bapt_ist Inc. Temporarily Worshipping At DoubleTree Guest Suites 11310 N. 30th Street Palm Ballrooms 1 & 2 Worship Service Sunday 9 A.M. Come Be A Part Remember the words of Jesus in John 14:1 "Let not your hearts be troubled". There is no intention on the part of the Father to cause your heart to' be troubled. God will show you things that will !!ause your fearful anxieties to subside. Most of humanity's problem is that we do not always see what God is saying or see what He is doing. John writes in Revelation 1:12a that he had an encounter with Jesus. The beginning of this encounter and revelation occurred as a result of being "In the Spirit". If we are going to see Jesus in His resurrection, we are going to have to be in the spirit or have a connection with it. Why is this important? Before he could turn to see, he had to first hear. John heard the voice of the Lord. We must be open to hear the voice of the Lord. The voice was in such a way that while he was in the spirit he heard it. Once he heard the voice he gave more attention by look ing to see the voice that was speaking to him. The church and the people of God must get back to the place of being more in the spirit to both hear the voice of Jesus and turn to see His glory. When we are in posi tion and setting, we are able to see the resurrection glory of Christ. Christ was in all .of His glory. After His resurrection, He was more glorious than what He was before his crucifixion. The Bible declares that just as we are crucified with Christ, we also live (Galatians 2:20). As Christ was resurrected so shall you. As Christ was more glorious after His resur rection so shall you. If Christ has the keys of Hell, so shall you. If Christ has the power over death, so do you. All of this took place after His res urrection. Now back at the tomb John records the experience of Mary. Mary is at the tomb looking for Jesus to complete the burial process. When she gets there she sees that Jesus is not there. She begins to cry and upon her observation she sees the angels (vs. 11). In her defense she has a reason to cry and weep She is justified by therapists and counselors to have this breakdown. The problem-of having a breakdown in the middle of your circumstance is that you don't see the signs that everything is all right. She saw angels sitting in the tomb If it was such a drastic thing and something was really wrong, I believe they would have been doing something. Because of her anxiety that is occurring in her flesh, she cannot see what is taking place in her spirit. Her grief goes even further. Jesus Himself shows up and she still did not recognize Him (vs. 14). The dangers we face by loosing hope in the midst of a storm. The anguish we live in, when we forget the words and voice of Jesus while going through our moments of pain and sorrow. She is talking to the man she is crying about and cannot see Him. God comes to answer your prayers and attend to your cries and you cannot see Him nor have an encounter with Him because you are still grieving about what happened days ago If you remember His words, No man can take my life, I lay it down (John 10:18), and He said if they destroy this Temple, in three days I will raise it up again (John 2:19). If we get in the Spirit and remember His words, we will celebrate this season in our lives. It is not a time for the church to moan; groan and complain; it is time for us to get up! Let there be an Easter season every-day in your life. Get Up! Let Resurrection S .unday be everyday, Get Up, When you get up, you willbe more glorious than what you_ were before.

And Spices Are The Health Of Life Yes, the basil in your grandmother's best recipes, the cayenne in your crabs and the cinnamon on your French toast are all good for you. Nutrition experts say that regular use of common spices. can help you stay healthy. How do seasonings work their magic? Like fruits and vegetables, spices are rich in antioxidant, anti-flammatory, antiviral and antibacterial compounds. Of course, you would not eat a whole cayenne pepper like you would a carrot, but spices are more concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Used regularly, herbs and spices can help reduce inflammation, aid in digestion and circulation, lower blood sugar .and boost immunity. A dash here, a sprinkle there, herbs don't just spice up your food, they help prevent disease. Here's how to start using more today. GARLIC: Like onions, garlic helps protect against gastrointestinal and colorec-tal cancer. THYME: Studies show that this herb increases the amount of omega-3 fatty acids present in kidney and brain cells. GINGER: A well-known anti-inflammatory and circulation booster, ginger is a year.-round power spice It is also high in potassium and aids to settle upset stomachs. CAYENNE PEPPER: An excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin A, betacarotene and lutein. The ingredient in peppers that gives its heat, boosts circulation, fights infection and aid s dig estion. Chilli peppers have also been found to help people boost metabolism and lose weight. It also has painrelieving properties. CINNAMON: Is a good source of manganese, iron and calcium. Recent studies have found that as little as a t easpoon of cinnamon daily can help low e r blood sugar, exciting some diabetes experts. It also helps reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. ROSEMARY: Has shown to increase blooq flow to the brain, giving credence to the herb's reputation as a memory tonic. It is also a good source of iron, calcium and potassium. PEPPERMINT: With its cool, fresh flavor and lively aroma, peppermint is best known as a stomach soother. Its also rich in nutrients like beta-carotene, vitamin A and vitamin. The only drawbac k is, like ginger, if you use too much, it could worsen heart. burn, if you are prone. TUMERIC: Want to build your body's defenses?

April 3, 2007 Dear Florida Sentinel readers, Advertisements running in local newspapers, on radio and on TV recently suggest that Verizon is only interested in serving wealthy households with its new FiOS TV service and is skipping over lower income parts of town. These claims are false indeed, it is desperation in action. They are being fabricated by the cable television industry to try to slow down competition for their products and services. It's hard to miss Verizon crews at work as they deploy fiber in neighborhoods all over our community, highlighted by the bright orange conduit that is fed into the ground for the fiber cable to be pulled through. We began installing the fiber network in 2004 with the idea that we could provide a competitive alternative to Bright House cable TV as long as we had the proper franchise allowing us to do so. Over three years later, we continue to deploy the fiber and can now offer fiber-based TV, Internet and telephone service to nearly 450,000 households in four counties-and we're not finished. We will add over 250,000 households to that number by the end of this year and add even more in 2008 and beyond. We want consumers who desire a choice and are interested in the leading technology for TV and the Internet to subscribe to our FiOS service. No matter where they live period. Thus far, we have deployed fiber in areas like New Tampa1 south Tampa, Hyde Park, Brandon, Wesley Chapel, Bradenton ... and also deployed in Sulphur Springs, University Square ; Temple Crest, Seminole Heights, Old Seminole Heights, Lowry Park Central, and in areas covering public housing sites, including J. L. Young, C. Blythe Andrews, Azzarelli, Scruggs Manor, Gardens at Southbay, Arbors at Padgett, Parkview and Bethune High Rise, among others. Soon, we will begin deploying to Robles Park Village Central Park Village, Belmont Heights, Meridian apartments and River Place apartments with more to follow. These are not the move s of a company trying to exclusively serve the wealthy. The point is, we will sell to anyone who wants our service and the market for our services has been created through the years by the cable companies. We are going where they are and possibly to even more communities. Verizon is investing literally billions of dollars to bring this product to consumers. That is way too much money for it to be only a selective service. Today, we are trying to change the franchise rules in Tallahassee so we can provide you with a choice for TV, Internet and voice services sooner, rather later and big cable does not like that, so they've decided to try to mislead you. But they cannot get away with it. If they it will hurt you and your neighbors most of a ll, becaus e you will still only have one choice-cable. : And that will cost you more than it should, because there is no choice. ' Please contact your elected representatives in Tallahassee today and let know you haven't been fooled let them know you want competition and want to see Florida enact a state franchise law, much like ten other states have already done. . -. -. .. Sincerely, I ./' r. r . ..., Alan Ciamporcero V President, Southeast region Verizon ::0 c l> lJ F !I 1\) 0 .... 0 lJ a l> CJ) m z ::! z m r;lll c: I .... m ::! z "C c: Ill c CJ) :I: m c m < m ::0 -< -t c: m CJ) c l> z c ::0 c G) m en I (')

FINANCIAL FOCUS == LEGAL EASE By ATTY. RODERICK FORD I Workplace Survival Tip #54 I Person who have been injured by employees hired by another may be able to sue the employer under the common law tort of "negligent hiring." Under Florida law, an employer can be sued for "Negligent Hiring. For example, if an employee, who has been convicted of armed robbery, later physi cally assaults a customer or co-worker then the employ-er who hired the employee may be sued under a "negli gent" hiring theory. The legal elements of negligent hiring consist of the f ollowing: (1) the employer w a s required to make an appropriate investigation of an employee and failed to do so; (2) an appropriate investigation would have revealed the unsuitability of the employee for the particular duty to be 10-MONTH CD performed or "for e mployment in general; (3) it was unreasonable f o r the employer to hire the employee in light of the information he or she knew or should have known; ( 4) the plaintiff (injured person) was within the zone of foreseeable risks created by the employment; and (5), the employer's breach of duty was the proximate cause of the plain tiff's injury.

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? 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.
