. _ FEATURES Woman Afflicted With Lupus Needs Walkers For Walk-A Thon In January 1995, Colette McDonald suddenly felt fatigued all the time and was suffering a tremendous loss of weight. She was hospitalized, and the doctors told her something she was not prepared for. Doctors told Ms. McDonald she had con. tracted Lupus, and there was no cure for the disease. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the body's own defense attacks otherwise healthy tissue. 'clinically, it can affect multiple organs including the heart, skin, joints, kidneys and nervous system. Although Ms. McDonald has endured tremendous pain and suffering since being diagnosed with the disease, she has only had two flare-ups, the latest March 26th and she said she thought she wasn't going to survive. "It was only through God I'm still here today." On May 12th at AI Lopez Park on the corner of Martin . :., CO LEITE MCDONALD Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Himes Avenue, the Alliance for Lupus Research will sponsor a "Walk With Us" walkathon to help raise funds for the research and cure of Lupus. It will start at 10 a.m. The 3.1-mile walkathon hopes to bring together peo ple from the community who suffer from the disease, their family members and friends. The medication Ms. McDonald takes is very 7. . expensive and only treats the symptoms. There is no cure. "I'm completely disabled, and if it weren't for a friend and an aunt, I'd be on my own. The changes in the weather have an adverse affect on me and I've had to twice close my restaurant. I'm the only one in my family from .either my father or mother's side to ever have the disease." Ms. McDonald invites everyone to come out and support her. . Anyone wanting to join her team, called "Hope," or become a sponsor can contact her at (813) 242-6162, or(813) 495-7144 ''You'll never know if the disease will strike you or a member of your family. Make sure when you go to your doctor for an examination, you ask them to check to see if you have Lupus. Early detection could help." Reporter Leon B.

So, it should come as no surprise that radio commentator Don Imus, who has a history of making insulting remarks, has once again offended some group. This time it is women in general, and Black women in particular. Calling the Rutgers University predominantly Black women's basketball team, "nappy-headed hos" in his latest slur. With a history of saying things in the past that demean Blacks, Jews, gays, ethnic groups and women with little to no opposition, Ainericans have allowed lmus to feel comfortable getting away with mean spirremarks. However, he stepped over the line again this time and both women and Black activists are fighting back. lmus is a classic example of how racism and bigotry will march boldly down Main Street when people are silent. We are convinced that all Americans should take a collective selective buying stand against this latest episode of media bad behavior, and should let our music, television and radio networks know we are tired of hearing-the "N" word, and women being referred to as female dogs and garden tools. Furthermore, it is time to stop referring to men as dawgs. And finally, it is time to buy productS-and shop in stores which clearly demonstrate by their choices of media outlets and advertising that they respect all ethnic and gender groups. We MUST respond firmly and decisively to both Don Imus and the music industry. Let our wallets and pocketbooks do the talking. NAACP Report Card Gives A's To .

This is why we should finally embrace the doctrine of slave reparations. Such a doctrine would serve as the new and continuous packaging of Civil Rights gain into the fundamental struggle. When we say, "We want slave reparations" we are addressing the damaging affronts rendered to Black people and their ancestors at least since 1619. These affronts can be identified in all forms of racism and racial discrimination including racial slurs, economic discrimination, political, psychological, social, and all such forms of human endeavors. found in and under the pillars of life. As these racial evils such as the Imus racial remarks are exposed, the remedy must be packaged in some form of reparations measured in terms of economic and political identity. The broadcasting institution, which has employed the author of such heinous comments, should be investigated and made to stand the scrutiny of racism. If the company is segregated or seen to have a history of promoting such negative attitudes and conduct, let it be made to bear a most meaningful reparation measured in dollars. This is the best way to apologize to those women at Rutgers and African-Americans past and present. This is what we mean by meaningful slave reparations. CBS must clean up its mess. If Imus called these educated and successful young Black ladies hos, to what extent would he try to demean the average Black woman who is doing the very best she can to make a life for herself in this competitive society. -Let us think reparations, seek reparations, effectively define reparations and get back to the business sadly left undone.

Officials wanted to set the meeting up in the major studio of one of the local television stations. But because of a need for privacy and honesty, away from the prying eyes of the media, that idea was turned down. Instead, both Don lmus, his staff and members of the Rutger's women's basketball team decided to meet in the backroom of an outof-the-way restaurant. They decided to meet over dinner, a la carte so to make sure there were no almost inaudible. The young women looked quizzically at him, then at each other. What happened to Don lmus' voice? Had the proverbial cat got his tongue? What he said was, "Look, I want you's to know I'm unbelievably sorry that anything I said may have insulted, hurt or harmed any of you guys ... because you gotta understand, that was never my intent. .. believe me.

Mr. lmus, and your staff iut agrt>"ing to meet with us. \\ e know you're a busy man.

"First of all sir, we're not girls. We're young women. Secondly, we're not hypocrites. But what about you? Don't you feel any responsibility? Do you have a daughter? Would you call your daughter a 'ho?' Don Imus looked into Essence's unsmiling eyes, he looked into the eyes of the young women seated around him who were waiting for an answer, and for the first time in his life, a cat stole his tongue! I know. It's just my imagination.

His comments were racial, disrespectful, meanspirited, dehumanizing and completely out of place. On his nationally televised show, he called the Rutgers players, "nappy-headed hos." Many Blacks and Black organizations took the man to task. It was what they should have done, and it is what he so rightly deserved. If anything, I am disappointed that even more Blacks did not take him, his television network and his sponsors to task. Maybe a lot of Blacks weren't upset at all not enough to get involved. A two-week suspension for this loose-lipped individual isn't enough. It amounts to no more than a slap on the wrist. He really .should be fired. While there is no excuse for lmus, it has etched a question in my mind that I must ask. Is it the message or is it the messenger? In other words, is it what is said that is important or is it who said it that matters? Anybody who disrespects our race of women should be taken to task. It should not matter the color, the race, the occu pation or the occasion. This includes the gangster rappers, comedians, Black people, white people or anybody else who engages in racist and disrespectful comments about Black people. Not even Bla.ck people should be allowed to engage in this kind ofconduct. Black people or African Americans must immediately stop supporting anybody, and any group that degrades our women and our race. When I say anybody, I mean anybody. In short, in these situations, we must condemn both the message and the messenger. What message do we send to others when we accept this degrading from Blacks. We should not buy music, their clothes or attend their shows. We should not accept this kind of conduct from other races of people, and we cannot and should not accept it from our own. Think about it. Are we saying to others that it is all right for Blacks to degrade other Blacks, but no other race can? The time has long passed when we feel that it is all right for the.kettle to 'call the pot dirty names. born, you start dying.

She was about 5 3" with a dark brown complexion, a pretty smile and a body that I just couldn't believe. We talked for a while, PAGE SIX exchanging the usual pleasantries that are involved when men and women meet. She told me some lies. I told her some lies, and we did our best to impress each other At about the point in the conversation where we started discussing the notion of taking our encounter to a more intimate level, she dropped a bombshell and confessed that she was married. Before I could say, "Oh yeah, thanks for wasting my time," she continued by say ing, "it wasn't a big deal" and that "we could still do our thing." She told me that she couldn' t or wouldn't go out with me alone, but that if I could bring another female for her husb'and, she would show me the time of my life. At that moment I realized that I was no longer macking, but being macked. She.went on to tell me that she and her husband had an open relationship and that inviting other people into their bedrooms made their lives exciting. It was as she called it, an adventurous choice of lifestyle While the arrangements she proposed never took place, I have to admit the curiosity of it all stayed with me for years. That experience would be my first brush with the hedonistic world of swinging. I' d heard of the term before and even ran across a few swinger publications, but I never seriously entertained the idea of participating in such an activity. Even though I'd been involved in a few outrageous sexual episodes, I couldn't imagine crossing the line into an arena where group sex with strangers was the norm. This brings me to an article I read recently in the April edition of Details Magazine called, "Meeting The Mandingos." The piece talked about Black men who attend what they call, "Mandingo Parties," to have sex with the wives of white men. The story, which coincidentally took place in the Tampa area, is one of perverted fantasies and sad realities. Though some of the husbands joyfully watched as their wives are fondled, groped and engaged in hardcore sex with Black studs, others reluctancy concede to their wife's wishes. For them, it's all about allowing someone else to do what they can't. After reading the entire piece, I discovered two things. One, I wasn't as much of a freak as thought I was; and two, everything isn't for everybody. I couldn't picture myself on either side of the equation. As a Mandingo; you're either acting n the capacity of a battery operated sex toy or you're fulfilling the role of an African captive in some twisted white boy's slave master fantasy. Neither of which seemed appealing to me. To be o n the other side would seem that I encouraged strange men to have thier way with my wife. For me to be actively involved in such a setting, I would have to be willing to play the role of "towel boy" while my wife is happily assisted in getting her groove back. In either case, I would feel like a loser. What some men get out of swapping their wives out, or acting as a prop in another couples role-playing session, I don't know.

T. Smith New Testament Examples of Conversion After His death, burial and resurrection Jesus instructed His apostles, "And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth no t shall be damned" (Mark 16: 15-16). Also in Luke 24:46-4 7 "And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day : 47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem When you conbine the two passages, one finds that Jesus told His apostles to preach to people. He then gave them the instructions for salvation believe, repent, and be baptized to be saved (Acts 2 : 36-38). In fact, this is what we find people doing in every case of conversion in the book of Acts. None was told he was saved, had received the remission of sins, or went on his way rejoicing until AFfER baptism .

"We just hope to come to some type of understanding of what the remarks really entailed, his reasons why they were said, and we would just like to express our great hurt and the sadness it has brought to us," team captain Essence Carson said at a news conference yesterday on Rutgers campus m Piscataway, New Jersey. Coach C . Vivian Stringer said that Irnus' remarks ruined what should have been a celebration for the students, who came from a series of devastating losses early in the season -including a 40-point drubbing in one game -:-to compete in the championship game of the NCAA fj.nals.

SPORTS Hank Aaron Won't Salute Bonds For Milestone Pierc;e To Miss Rest Of Season San Francisco Giants' Barry Bonds stands at the left field wall by images of Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth, right, after chasing a solo home run hit by Philadelphia Phillies' David Bell in the seventh inning of their baseball game in San Francisco, in this July 16, 2006 file photo. BOSTON --Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierc e will miss the rest of the season with a sore left elbow. ATLANTA --Hank Aaron doesn't plan to be at the ballpark if an,d when Barry Bonds breaks his home run record. "Uh-uh. No, no. I'm not going to be around," Aaron was quoted as saying in Tuesday's editions of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Bonds has 735 homers, 20 short of Aaron's career record. While Aaron has declined most interview requests in recent months, he spoke with Journal-Constitution columnist Terence Moore. Aaron said he wouldn't attend if Bonds were within reach of the record when the San Francisco Giants play at Atlanta from Aug. 14-16. I'd probably fly to West Palm Beach to play golf," Aaron was quoted as saying in Moore's column. "Again, it has nothing to do with anybody, other than I had enough of it. I don't want to be around that sort of thing anymore. I just want to be at peace with myself Aaron, said baseball com missioner Bud Selig has told him that Bonds has asked several times why Aaron hasn't contacted him as he approaches the record. "I don't talk to anybody, really, and I've never talked to Barry, outside of that com mercial we did together a few years ago, and a few other short times," Aaron was quot.ed as saying. "I'm 72 years old, and I'm not hopping on a plane and flying all the way to San Francisco for any body." Pierce, who had surgery on that elbow la'st offseason and had an infection in it earlier this season, hasn't played since re-aggravating the injury in a 105-96 double-overtime victoiy over Orlando on March 28. With only five games remammg, including Wednesday's game against Philadelphia, and the Celtics long out of playoff contention, coach Doc Rivers said rushing Pierce back wouldn't be worth the risk. "I don't think it makes any sense," Rivers said. "I just think it's dangerous and not smart to do." Hall Of Famer Irvin Sued By Contractor Pierce, who missed 24 games earlier in the season with a stress reaction in his left foot, 25 points and 5.9 rebounds in a career low 4 7 games. MICHAEL IRVIN DALLAS --Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin is being sued by a contractor who claims the former Dallas Cowboys star grabbed his arm and injured him during a dispute over a $2,800 payment. Shawn Vandergrift was hired to install a fountain at Irvin's P lano home. He is seeking damages stemming from the December argument, according to court records: .. Irvin told The Dallas Morning' News -the allegations were "blackmail." "I have not-touched any-. one," he. told the newspaper. "The lawsuit is the first I heard about aggravating an old injury." The suit claims that Irvin grabbed Vandergrift, who attorneys say from hip pain, and jerked his body as he tried leaving. Irvin had begun "screaming and shout ing" after Vandergrift said he was owed payment for the work, according to the law suit.

Browne Pass Away Calvin Lockhart, the Bahamian-born actor who appeared in a number of 1970s black movie mega hits died March 29 in Nassau from complications of a stroke. He was 72. Lockhart, is best remembered as inner-city hustler Biggie Smalls in the 1975 comedy "Let's Do It Aga in," Lockhart played in more than a dozen movies, includ ing the Ossie Davis-directed "Cotton Comes to Harlem," in which he played the immoral preacher, Rev. Deke O Malley. In the 1980s, he had a recurring role on the primetime soap opera "Dynasty" playing a love interest of Diahann Car r oll's character, Dominiqu e Deveraux. One of his last big-studio movies was 1988's "Coming to America," where he had a supporting role of Colonel Izz i. But it is Lockhart's "Let's Do It Again" character that may have played a role in a younger generation of fans giving him his props: The Duke Lacrosse Players Cleared In Rape Case RALEIGH, N.C.-(AP) The Duke lacrosse rape case final ly collapsed Wednesday with North C a rolina's top prosecutor saying the three athletes were railroaded by a district attorney who ignored increasingly flimsy evidence in a tragic rush to accuse. In a blistering assessment of the case, Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped all charges against the players all but ensuring that only one. person in the whole scandal will be held to account: Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong. "This case shows the enormous consequences of overreaching by a prosecutor," Cooper said': Cooper, who took over the case in January after Nifong was cha_ rged with ethics vio lations that could get him disbarred, said his own investi gation into a stripper's claim that she was assaulted at a team party found nothing to corroborate her story, and "led us to the conclusion that no attack occurred "There were many points in the case where caution would have served justice better than bravado," Cooper said. "In the rush to condemn, a community and a state lost the ability to see clearly." CALVIN LOCKHART gangster nemesis of S idney Poitier and Bill Cos b y's do good characters; Lockhart's B iggie Smalls was the new school mobster moving in on John Amos' old school Kansas City M ack. The ultra-cool Biggie Smalls character became a model that many followed, from everyday inner-city hustlers to an internationally-known hip-hop artist. While Amos' Kansas Cit y Mack was just as conniving as Lockhart's Biggie S malls, it was the Smalls character -and Lockhart's portrayal -that articulated the new, more refined gang-ster, and was a significant reason why Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G. took on the name Biggie Smalls. ROSCOE LEE BROWNE Roscoe Lee Browne, an Emmy Award-winning actor with a mellifluous baritone that he used to give voice to in everything from Shakespeare's plays to the popular animal film Babe, died Wednesday at CedarsSinai Medical Center. He was 81.

On March 28th, police said Hobbs and Edwards walked into the Hello Cellular Store at 6804 North Armenia and demanded money at gunpoint. The victim complied and Hobos and Edwards fled. 'Later that same day, police said Hobbs and Sheggog walked into the Metro PCS Store at 4305 North Armenia VERNON HOBBS and demanded money form employees at gunpoint. The victim!> complied and both teenagers fled. On April 6th, police said Hobbs and Godfrey walked into the Wendy's Restaurant at 1615 West Kennedy Boulevard wearing skeleton masks and armed with guns. Hobbs allegedly took an employee at gunpoint to the back of the store to open a safe while Godfrey held cus tomers at gunpoint. Both fled with an undetermined amount of cash. Police said they were able to identify the suspects when someone reported the license plate of the car used in the robberies. On Tuesday, detec tives located the vehicle and determined the owner was not involved in the robberies. Ms. Keel said she found out about her nephew's arrest when an assistant principal at Howard W. Blake called and asked to speak to his mother. "I told her I was his guardian. She told me he was being arrested, but wouldn't tell me for what". "When he got to the office and saw Hobbs, he realized he had been lied to when they took him out of his class." Ms. Keel said school offi-CRIME NEWS ARAMIS EDWARDS cials wouldn't tell her where police were taking her nephew at first, but later said he was being taken to the Orient Road Jail. "When I heard what he had been charged with, I crumbled inside. I've been taking care of him since he was little and he has never given me any problems. He's not perfect, but when he's with me he's always respectful." Ms. Keel said when she did reach Edwards, he was very scared. "That's why he started talk ing. He told me he overheard them saying he was going to prison for 30 years. He never had an attorney or anyone else present during the questioning. "Legally, we don't know what we're going to do. I'm on disability and his mother just started a new joh and can't take any time off." Tampa Police spokesperson Lisa Parashis said Edwards was 18 when he was arrested, and all interviews by detectives are recorded. She also said Edwards signed a statement informing him of his rights. Hobbs Had Promising Football Career Those close to Vernon Man ,In Popcorn shop Owner's Murder-Gets Life Sentence The 2-day trial of Nathaniel Jackson, accused of first-. degree murder in.the shooting death of popcorn shop owner Jeffrey endecl Thursday with a diet. The jury took just over 3-112 hours to return a verdict of guilty 'on aU counts. Jackson was immediately sentenced to life in prison on charges of armed kidnapping, aggravated assault with a firearm, first-degree and carjacking. Prosecutors said Jackson didn't shClot Dampier, but could still ;. 'o pr;,;un for life on a felony m;Jrdc: l:harge if jurors felt gave the order for his girlfriend, Victoria Jacbon, to pull the trigger. Victoria Jackson has already been sentenced to life in prison. Prosecutors said the couple planned tot kidnap and rob Dampier, then later. killed him to keep him quiet. Dampier, 39, 'was the brother-in-law of Victoria NATHANIEL JACKSON ... was sentenced to life on Thursday. He openedKassie's Gourmet Popcorn in the city's Channelside district after winning a $20 million lottery in Illinois. Prosecutors saiq Dampier was also Victoria Jackson's lover, and jealousy and money drove Nathaniel_ Jackson, her other boyfriend, to harm him. The plan climaxed July 26, JEFFREY DAMPIER ... was. kidnapped and fatally shot in 2005. I 2005 when Victoria Jackson called Dampier to her Brandon apartment, where he was tied up with shoestrings and forced into his van. Prosecutors said there, Victoria Jackson shot him in the head as Nathaniel Jackson drove around. Nathaniel Jackson's attorney said his client did not provoke or expect the shooting. EDUARDO GODFREY Hobbs are still in shock. They can't believe he would ever get involved in something like this. A close family friend said Hobbs, known to those close around him as "Duck," had a promising football career, comes from a good family, attended church, and was well-liked by everyone. Clarence Jones, editor for the school's paper, The Blaze, and a columnist for the Florida Sentinel Bulletin, said he knew Duck very well. "We were close friends and I was his mentor. He was planning on getting his grades up and really wanted to attend college to play football. "I think he just got caught up in a bad situation. I'm still shocked about all of this." Jones said Duck had a promising football career and just wasn't the kind of person to get involved in something like this . "I !lever thought he had the courage to do something like this. I think things on the outside just got to him. He was really a great student and friend." Blake Head Football Coach Sean Washington said he's in a lot of pain and hopes he will be able to recover. "What hurts as well is they KEEVAUGHNSHEGGOG (the media) are trying to make the things these kids did reflective of the school. These are just things all of our kids get caught up in. "Vernon's senior year was full of promise,, and the big schools were already looking at him. "We need to keep the kids focused and involved in positive activities and not on an Xbox or in front of the televi sion. It has to start at home. I loved this kid. I really cared a lot about him. We talked a lot and he's a great kid, in spite of what the papers are saying." Coach Washington said Hobbs was more of a lady's man, always smiling, joking and trying to impress the ladies. ... "I haven't had a chance to sit down with his family, but I will go by their home to drop off the letters of interest he got from the big schools who wanted to r .ecruit him. "We as a society must support all of the kids and help them recover from this mistake. I hope Vernon doesn't get too stiff a sentence and is allowed to recover. He made one bad decision that probably cost him a future in foot ball, but notfor life."

I This week in the book of Revelation 4, John shares the vision he saw in Heaven. God will show an individual what he needs to see. God showed this vision to John so that he could share the vision with others. Many times God will give visions that are to be shared with others. The purpose of sharing the vision is not to make the individual seem superior or more spiritual, itis meant to provide others with information on how to live better and richer lives. The vision which God is showing John is not what is taking place right now. Perhaps it is not taking place on earth because the people are not doing it. The issue is worship. After John sees the vision, he then has something to teach and share. Many people do not worship because they do not know or understand the concept of worship. saw. There was an invitation and a transformation. First, there was the invita tion. In v erse 1 he said that he looked and saw a door standing open in heaven. As he stood in a position in his flesh he was able to see the door. The door is recognizable in the flesh. To access heavenly things one must come through the door. Jesus said that He is the.door (John 10:9). The door that is standing can only be opened from the inside of heaven. The door to see the visions of the way your life should be is standing open for you. Jesus is the door and He has the door opened for you. This is the invitation for you to come ip. You can see it with your flesh and you can approach it in your flesh. The second part that John discloses is what I want to call the transformation. In verse 2 John says that immein the spirit. Part of the church's problem is that it is trying too hard to see spiritual things and comprehend spiritual vision through the eyes of the flesh. That is why there are so many fights and disagreements in church meetings. One person may be seeing in the spirit and the others are there and looking in the flesh. Before John could walk into Heaven and see the things that God was revealing he had to be in the spirit. When God gets ready to show you something, you must be transformed from the mindset of the flesh and be put in a spiritual place. You cannot understand the Book of Revelatioq from your flesh. You must be in the spirit. To comprehend and understand what God is calling you to do and be, you must get in the spirit. God is trying to show .you your future and how you should live. To see it you must be in the spirit. Get ip the spirit so you can see the visions of God. The belief is that by sharing this vision with the churches, the people will have a better understanding of what is expected in worship and when. The vision will also give the persons involved and the role of each person. In the church everybody has a role to play in worship Everyone has a role to play in creating the atmosphere in worship.

Free radicals are free-floating molecules that can cause harm to the skin by damaging important skin-layer elements-a process known as "oxidation." Scientific research has identified oxidation as a major source of premature skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin E in the skin cap. tures and gets rid of damaging free radicals before being discarded by the body. Meanwhile, a substance called coenzyme QlO (CoQlO)-naturally present in the outer lipid layer of the skin-helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and provide energy to cells A Powerful Pair New skin care products now entering the market combine CoQlO and vitaniin E more efficiently to reduce the signs of aging. CoQlO is also highly effective in pro-tecting certain skin cells from DNA damage induced by ultraviolet light. What To Look For When purchasing a product for antioxidant benefits, it's important to know the "real" names of the ingredients you seek, so you can find them on the label. And remember, the. Closer to the beginning of the ingredients list that com pound is, the more likely the product will provide its intended benefit. Get Your Toes Ready . If you want terrific toenails to make the most of your favorite sandals, it's time to treat yourself to a pedicure. Some women prefer to give themselves a pedicure.

As a student of broadcasting, I know Don Imus was one of the original "shock jocks." I listened to him growing up in New York City in the late '60s and early '70s. He is a radio icon. That said, it is time for him to go. I, for one, am really tired of the diatribes, the ''humor" at others' expense, the cruelty that passes for "funny". Don Imus isn't the only one doing this, but today he's the one in the hot seat. What he said was vile and disgusting. It denigrated an entire team and by extension, a community and its pride in a group that had excelled. This controversy started and grew during the week. At first under the radar, we even had Don's wife, Deidre, on the program, talking about "green" cleaning. I thought she was so good I wanted to talk to her about a telev1sion program. for my prO<;luction company. Don and his wife have done a lot of good thingsraising money for charity, including a ranch for children suffering from cancer and blood disorders. Yet, Don Imus needs to be fired for what he said. And while we're at it; his producer, Bernard needs' to be canned-as well. McGuirk 'just as guilty, often egging Imus on. The "I'm a good person whO-said a bad thing" apology doesn't cut it. At least he didn't try. to weasel out of this by hiding behind alcohol ALROKER or drug abuse. Still, he said it and a two-week suspension doesn't cut it. It is, at best, a slap on the wrist. A vacation. Nothing. The general manager of Cartoon Network resigned after a publicity stunt went wrong and caused a panic in Boston. He did the right thing. Don Imus should do the right thing and resign. Not talk about taking a twoweek suspension with dignity. I don't think Don Imus gets it. Mter watching and listening to him this morning during an interview with Matt Lauer, Don Imus doesn't get it. Maybe it's being stuck in a studio for 35 years or being stuck in the 1980s. Either way, it's obvious that he needs. to move on. Citing "context within a comedy show" is not an excuse. He has to take his punish-. ment and start over. Guess what? He'll get re-hired and we'll go on like nothing happened. CBS Radio and NBC News needs to remove Don Imus from the airwaves. That is what needs to hap-. pen. Otherwise, it just looks lilte profits and ratings rule over decency and justice. ,. '. ; 50 Cent's Manager Remains Top Dealmaker BEVERLY HILLS, CA -Yes, 50 Cent is one of rap's most lucrative entertainers. Yes, he's sold more than 11 million albums, and yes, he has built a rap empire. But no, 50 ca 'n't count on selling his usual million albums the first week in these troubled musical times which is why he needs manager Chris Lighty more than ever. Lighty didn't get to be hiphop's go-to dealmaker by accepting the status quo. So while sales may be down, Lighty is still working magic to make sure 50 -and other high-profile clientele like Diddy and Busta Rhymes keep getting very paid. During an interview in the swank cafe of the opulent Beverly Hills Hotel, Lighty rattles off various opportunities for 50, including a vitamin supplement deal, a role in a Brett Ratner movie, and his own condom line. Coming soon for another Client, LL Cool J? A Chapstick deal for CHRIS LIGHTY ... inset 50 CENf the rapper known for licking his lips. "Now you have to as many strategic alliances as possible to market your music and market your brand, to grow the brand and then in turn hopefully grow and help another brand," says Lighty. "As music sales go down because kids are stealing it off the Internet and trading it and iPod sales continue to rise, you can't rely on just the income that you would make off of being an artist." It's an aggressive and diverse strategy as the recording industry grapples with sharply declining sales -but not a new one for the 38-year-old Lighty, who has been a player in the hip-hop game since he was a kid DJ some two decades ago. He rose through the ranks at Rush Management (Russell Simmons' first company) before eventually founding Violator Management 10 years ago (Mona Scott and James Cruz are "A lot of people look up to Chris Lighty because of the blueprint that he's laid over the years," says Grouchy Greg, founder of the leading rap Web site allhiphop.com. "He started with KRS-One and Scott La Rock, and if you listen to early h.ip-hop records, you'll hear early mentioning of him. He's been instrumental in a number of influential artists' careers." -Jackson May s ue To Stop Memorabilia Sale More than 1,100 Jackson family items are set for auc tion in Las Vegas next month, but a representative for Michael Jackson says the pop star is considering legal action to stop the sale. "Mr. Jackson was not aware and he is extremely upset that his memorabilia was included amongst the memorabilia that is being auctioned off," said spokes-. woman Raymone K. Bain. The Jacksons Auction is scheduled May 30-31 at the Hard Rock hotel resort. Guernsey's auction house said items include Michael Jackson's gold record for his "Thriller" album, handwritten lyrics for the Jackson Five hit "ABC" and a "Victory Tour" program signed by Jackson family members. Arlan Ettinger, founder and president of Guernsey's, compared the sale to an tion of Elvis Presley I Graceland memo'rabilia he conducted in Las Vegas in 1999. "It certainly is in that sphere of landmark, high-profile, extraordinary auctions," Ettinger said. Michael Jackson, 48, has been living in Las Vegas while he evaluates proposals for a comeback after his 2005 acquittal in California on child molestation charges. _His father, former Jackson Five manager Joe Jackson, also lives in Las Vegas. He didn't respond to a phone message seeking comment. Ettinger said the collection was owned by luggage transportatilln company Universal MICHAEL JACKSON Express of Boca Raton, Fla., which bought it last year from a New Jersey construc tion company owner. The former owner, Henry Vaccaro; claimed a warehouse full of Jackson memo rabilia after a failed business venture wound up in bankruptcy court. Michael Jackson and his s'ister Janet sued to sti>p Vaccaro from taking ownership, but a Los Angeles judge threw out Michael's claim in 2006. .. ct:O).t:.N : :: : :. :.:: .. :: .. .; .-: .. ::::::: ;::-FREE f90D AND OPEN BAR AVAILABLE WITH PURCHASE OF VIP FROM 11 Pt.1 TO 12AM IN THE UPPER LEVEL OF THE CLUB ..

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer During the Tuesday night meeting of the East Tampa Revitalization Partnership, City of Tampa East Tampa Development Manager, Ed Johnson, gave the group an update on TIF (Tax Increment Finance) expenditures. According to Johnson, the East Tampa Partnership's first TIF award in 2005 was $1.1 million. At the beginning of the new 2006 TIF period, $2,000 was left over 'from 2005 and it was used to purchase computer equipment to account for the remainder of the 2005 TIF budget. The 2006 TIF budget was $2.7 million, and at the end of that period, $537,000 was left. Those funds have been earmarked for the 34th Street Retention Pond project. The 2007 TIF figure was $5.2 million, and currently $4.5 million of that amount remains. Johnson reminded every one that property taxes furid the TIF, and also affect the ED JOHNSON amount the Partnership receives. "Make sure you let your legislators know you don't want to see property taxes disappear. If that happens, that will be the end of the TIF dollars and the projects we have planned for East Tampa." Partnership Chairman Sam Kinsey and Johnson both expressed frustration over the city's progress in initiating projects TIF dollars have already been set aside for. "The money is in place, but bureaucracy is dragging its feet in implementing the pro jects," said Mr. Kinsey. EVANGELINE BEST Aesthetics and Beautification Chairperson Betty Wiggins said she's received a letter of thanks for the project at Potter Elementary, but no progress has been made on the other projects. Health, Education and Social Services Chairperson Evangeline Best reminded everyone of the upcoming Wellness Plan For MeQ to be held at Middleton High School April 28th. "We've also visited 13 schools in East Tampa to assess their needs. They have requested more visits and open lines of communication BETIY WIGGINS so we can see what's going on and assess the needs of the schools. "We are also developing a strong disaster preparedness plan for East Tampa. The first 72-hous are very critical." Ms. Best also reminded every that Middleton High School's Agricultural Department has a nursery and are selling plants to the public. Housing Committee Chairperson Diane Hart said the $600;000 allocated to assist residents with home repairs has been exhausted, and they aren't accepting any more applications. She asked the committee to see if more funds could be set aside to continue the project. Land Use Chairperson Carol Josephs-Marshall said she's working on a reporting system to make sure the committee knows what's going on, especially how zoning issues impact the community. "There are currently 3 projects underway we are keep. ing an eye on. One is at 2901 North 21st Avenue, another is by the Joshua Group at 2106 East Osborne, and a wet zoning request for a business at 3402 East Lake Avenue." Ms. Marshall said no pub lic hearings have been held yet on the 3 projects, a May 24th date has been set for City Council to hear the requests. Mr. Kinsey credited his cochair, Toni Watts, with creating the Overlay Plan for East Tampa and insuring that any requests for zoning changes in East Tampa be presented to the Partnership. East. Tampa Partnership Discusses Future Of Gene's Bar Site BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer The topic of discussion during Tuesday night meeting of the East Tampa Revitalization Partnership was the future of the Gene's Bar site. The committee reviewed sug gestions such as relocating the NAACP Empowerment Center, creating a Life Skills Center, allowing the barbecue business to remain, keeping the city owned property to the north of the building, acquiring the lot south of the building, removing the building, creating a park, creating a super bus station, allowing it to remain as a commercial property to bring in more developers, and creating an apartment and/or restaurant with an empowerment center.

"We decided moving the Empowerment Center to that location would not be a good idea, because the"' NAACP KINSEY occupying the site would not be in the best interest of the community. "We also decided,creating a life skills center wouldn't be a good idea because that yvould be duplicating something that exists throughout East Tampa." Mr. Kinsey said the suggestion to allow Caldonia's Barbeque to remain on the property was also eliminated, because the business occupies such a small portion of the lot and would intrude on whatever is suggested at the site. Housing Chairperson Diane Hart suggested ...--........ that the business either be relocated o r perhaps allowed to reopen within whatever facility occupies the .__ __ __;;._,..I.J site in. the future. DIANE HART The idea of creating a library was eliminated because the committee felt the existing library on MLK, Jr. Boulevard and 26th Street already serves the area, and it wouldn't be a good idea for commercial prop erty. : "We also felt creating a minipark wasn't a good idea, because there are plenty of recrea tiona! areas all over: East Tampa," said o Mr. Kinsey. "The community said they didn't want a super bus stop at that location because they felt it would create emission issues." What the committee felt were good suggestions was to remove the building, allow the property to remain commercial, and create a multi-use facility that wouldn't include a restaurant. The main focus of the committee was to create something that would attract enter prise into that area and create jobs. Mr. Kinsey said no discus sions have been initiated with the owners of the cleaning business on the northwest corner of the property, and the cost factor may not make that possible. Business owner Marvin Knight agreed that bringing in a commercial business 0 was a good idea. "We need something that would enhance the area and generate a tax MARVIN base for the area KNIGHT as well as create jobs. Since the place has so -inuch 0 negative history attached to it, tearing it down and starting over .would be the best thing."

Gospel Hip Hop Gets The Message Across TRUE A gospel hip-hop group called True has perf9rmed throughout the south, and if there's one thing they've learned it's that everyone isn't receptive to gospel music. "We found out if you aren't saved, you can't really beat people over the head with your lyrics," said T-Bone. "They won't listen to you and you'll never get them to hear what you're really trying to say." T-Bone is one of seven artists that form the Gospel hip hop group, True. The other members are Avari, Blakk Gold, Eclypse, Gammage, B. Lo, C. l)'ot, and their musician and composer, K. City. The group says their band of Gospel hip hop is different, because they represent their lifestyles through their music. "This is how we speak and interact," said the group. "Our music is a direct reflection of how we live our lives." The mission of True is to create Christian hip hop the way it should be presented. They feel there has been a lot of false representation.t> about what Christianity really is. "One thing we know for sure is music has been the one constant that brings people together," said Blakk Gold. The group has attended the Holy Hip Hop Awards Show and has been,well received everywhere they've performed. They bring entertainment and introduce how to have a good time with a new lifestyle. . "We think Gospel music always carries the same message, no matter how it's delivered," said T-Bone. "Being exposed to this is very important, and ;,.e think some people are afraid of that. We want to spark the mind of the young ministers, get exposure and generate a buzz. Our great-est gift is our versatility." True is associated with Revealing Truth Ministries, imd invite anyone to come by and listen to their new brand of Gospel music. Reporter Leon B.

Anthony Licensed Mortgage Broker (813) 223-6151 Mistakes Smart People Make When It Comes To A Mortgage Not knowing how much they can afford before they make an o ffer is one of the first mistakes that smart Knowledge Is Key To Buying And Real Estate The New Florida Land Trust Act Effective October 1, 2006, the Land Trust Statute, Sec. 6 89 .071, went through an extreme makeover at the initiative of the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section or' the Florida Bar. Originally, land trusts were used in England to hide ownership of land. In Florida, as well as the other five states that have codified the land trust, the legal and equitable title is LEGAL EASE By ATTY. RODERICK FORD [Workplace Survival Tip #55 I The Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification Act (WARN) was enacted by Congress in 1993. This act requires employers to pro vide sixty (60) days notice to employers who will be laid off or whose hours will be substantially reduced due to a plant closing. There are two exceptions: The "faltering company" exception allows the employ: er to avoid this 60-day requirement if it made a good faith effort to try to keep the company going but ultimately could not. The "unforeseen business circumstances" exception allows the employer to avoid this 60-day requirement if the closings or layoffs were not reasonably foreseeable. If a company fails to pro vide notice to employees who are laid off or receive reduced hours, due to plant shut-downs, may be liable for damages. Tip #56 What are. the employers obligations to employees when selecting group health insurance? In Dawes Mining co. v Callahan (272 S.E. 2d 267, GA 1980) the court held that employers act as the agent for employees when they change group insurance plans and have a duty to notify employees of the dif ferences in the policies. In a gr.oup policy, the employer acts as the agent of he insurer for determining who is eligible to participate in th.e program. However ; in selecting the group policy, the employer js not the agent of the insurer but instead acts as the agent of the employee. The employer has a duty to act primarily for the benefit of the employ ee Failing to so act may sub ject the employer to liability and damages. Tip #57 agreements, also known as "covenants not to compete, .are governed by the 1996 version of Florida's non-compete statute,. which provides that enforcement of Arc You Expecting A R efund Thi s Tax Season?

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 theirhome. 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, ttien 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. More importantly we can provide you with our cre dentials.
