FEATURES Historic Lily Temple Demolished Great Grandmother Is 'Having A Good Time' BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer If one were to ask Mrs. Bernice Pouncey how she's doing, they may be surprised her response. She is quick to say, "I'm enjoying these 80s better than any other time in my life. I'm having a good time." In this photo is a 1948 photo of the Lily White In this photo, the wrecking crane demolishes Born and raised in Tampa, Mrs. Pouncey married the late Willie Pouncey and they became the parents of one son and two daughters. Mr. Pouncey died in 1965. Twelve years later, her youngest daughter died, leav, ing behind a son and daughter. Building. the So-year-old structure BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer For as long as anyone can remember, the huge building at 3712 29th Street has been there. Yesterday (Thursday), the 80-year-old Lily White Temple was razed because it had fallen on tough times and had been condemned by the city According to local historians, the building was erected in 1927 and first served as an Italian Ethnic Center and Theater. In 1935, The Lily White Association moved into the building and remained there for nearly 40 years. The Lily White Hospital, a 50-bed that once stood adjacent to the south side of the Temple at 3710 29th Stree t was constructed in 1948 and operated until 1971. The building was used for social events and lodge meet ings were held there. The Tampa History Center said according to their records, activities at the building ceased in 1978. Since that time, the building remained closed and unoccupied until the mid-1990s when retired police detective Tommie Ellis used it as an amateur boxing gym and training facility for youth in the area. C. Blythe Andrews, Jr., Grand President of the Lily Security Benefit Association, tried to get the building designated as a historic landmark, but that effort was unsuccess ful. Mrs. Pouncey said when that granddaughter came to live with her and gave birth to a little girl named Luvenia Nicole "Nikki" Davis, in 1989. When the baby was just a toddler, her granddaughter moved out. However, less than a year later, Mrs. Pouncey became Nikki's legal guardian. The little girl was 2-years-old at the time.

Raised in Thonotosassa, Thomas attended Armwood High School where he did not bloom until he graduated and joined the Army. He became a military policeman in South Korea. But according to his parents and family members, it was in the Army that Michael D. Thomas became a man. Some years later, Thomas found himself in the mountains of Afghanistan.

Black political leaders would surely be letting the masses of Black people down by failing to challenge the candidates on certain issues left unsolved. For example, school desegre gation has passed on, but the inequality of education between Black and white students is highly potent in today's classrooms. How should the Democratic Party platform address the issue? What will both Hillary R. Clinton and Barack Obama say in addressing the same?

It is the day set aside for chil dren to simply say "thank you" in whatever manner they choose. When we think of mother hood, we think of the biologi cal act. But there are. other ways to become mothers. There are those who legally adopt children, while others assume the role because they have so much love to give. . The act of being a mother is far different from being any thing else. It is urtique because motherhood is an equalizer.

There will be those who will cry out against a serious and explicit airing of debates between the two leading can didates the Democrats will put forth. Such will not help the Republicans because their minds are already made up about Black people. The think ing here is that the Black vote should be earned, and our voters must be treated with respect. Respect is never earned without intelligence and integrity. What about the Iraq war, as it invokes domestic policy against the economic interests of the masses of the people, Black and white alike. How does Obama see that issue? What about Clinton? Of course, we have long known the Clinton position regard ing healthcare as a major issue in this country. Both candidates need to address ways and means in creating better-paying jobs, and making the nation's investment: balance our expenditures abroad. It has all been about the war in Iraq and that does not pay the bills in the nation's homes. We would hope that some measure of a Black political braintrust would come togeth er and put forth some measure of a Civil Rights platform candidates would be asked to respond to.

Come here recently, a bid to bring the S.S.

What do we have to show for it? Bits of tokenism is all we have. That is not reason enough for the race to desert the party. That is not reason enough for us to go flocking to the Republican Party. Nor is it reason enough for us to become Independents, or to form our own political party. Blacks have not benefited much from the Republican Party being in control. The Democratic Party has taken Black voters for granted, and we continue to reward the party with our votes. The Republicans have almost totally ignored Black voters, and have made no great effort to change that. Colin Powell, a Black Republican, has said that the Republican Party is not the party for Black people. Does that mean that we are doomed? No it does not. What it means is that Blacks need to become political free agents. Now what does that mean? It means that the alle giance of Black voters should be to candidates, and not to political parties. We need to and must regis ter to vote as a member of a political party But our sup port, our vote and our alle giance should be to the candidates who support our agenda, who are sensitive to our problems and who openly respond to our needs We must cease even caring what party a candidate belongs to. We need to not even see a party. We should see only a candidate.

So, do males take women for grant ed? Absolutely! Although this weekend will be set aside in recognition of Mother's Day, we tend to go through the usual fanfare of taking them out to dinner, buying them gifts and flowers, and treating them like royalty. As soon as Monday arrives, it's back to old schedu l e as if the weekend never happened. Being raised by a single parent made me appreciate the role of the woman more It gave me a perspective of exactly what their role is and how much we expect of and from them. Women don't get enough credit for their achievements. They still have to exist in a society that doesn't consider them equals, espe cially when it comes to earn ing power and positions of power. A woman u s ually has to take it up a notch jus t to survive in corporate America. Women in positions of leadership aren't expected to have the same thread of respert as men. However, thost> same women event u ally gain that thread of respect through their deeds Once the two dominant parties realize that Blacks will onl y support those candidates who are willing to address their needs and concerns, they will no longer take our vote for granted or just ignore us. I was a blind Democrat, but no longer am. Today, I declare myself a political free agent and encourage other Blacks to join me. We don't need a college degree to know that being confined to one party has not worked for us. It should be obvious that a change is needed. A big election is on the horizon. In 2008, this nation will select a president. As we prepare for that election let us think free agent and the best candidate. For the time being, politi cal parties need to be a thing of the past.

CREWS Sentine l Staff Writer Hope For Life Worth Living Ministries will be cosponsoring an event called "A Gift Of Hope The event is scheduled f o r May 22nd at Gaslight Park in Downtown Tampa and will r u n from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. The purpose of the event is to sho w love and compassion for the hundreds of homeless people in the area. Donna Potts, founder of the ministry said it is their wish to help home less p eo p le become self-sufficient. "We believe instead of catching fish and giving it to them, to teach them how to fish for themselves. That way they w ill b e able to take care of themselves and improve t h e i r lives." Ms. Potts said it was her own personal experience that gave her t h e insight to start the ministry a year ago. A rriving in Tampa from her native Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Ms. Potts was arrested at Tampa International Airport on a drug possession charge and spent a year in the Hillsborough County Jail. She also had her 3 children taken away. "If it weren't for Deeper Life Ministries, I don't know what would have happened to me. They helped me com-plete classes to become a medical assistant and I grad uated at t h e top of my class." In 2004, Ms. Potts got her children back, and through her ministry, she's been able to give away 60 turkey baskets for Thanksgiving, and toys for needy children during Christmas. "And I'm proud to announce we'll be taking the 'Gift Of Hope' to St. Petersburg later this year. "The event on the 22nd is a true event for the homeless who cry out for help all the time. I think they mostly go ignored and aren't respected by those more fortunate. FROM 3-A Great Grandmother nurtured Nikki, who is now 17-years-old. Recently, Nikki who is a junior at Middleton High School, had the opportunity to take a trip aboard. She was invited to take part in the People To People Student Ambassador Program. The program allows teen-ers the opportunity to visit five countries as representatives of their schools and their coun try. It also exposes them to life in different parts of the world and helps to build confidence and leadership,_ cultural understanding, world awareness, new friendships, and experiences that will last throughout their lives. However, the participants needed $6,000 to participate in the program as well as spending money. Mrs. Pouncey wanted Nikki to take part in this o nce in a lifetime experience, but didn't have the money. I didn't know helped to make this possible and I didn't have to mortgage my home. "Nikki is a good girl and I've never had any problems with her. She goes to church and I know where she is every night," the 83-year-old soon -to-be great, great grandmother said. By trade, Mrs. Pouncey worked as a presser and retired "3 or 4 times." The last time she retired, she was 81-years-ol9-. Now that she is living on a fixed income, she keeps herself busy and earns extra money by doing alterations. "I enjoyed every minute of my work. I just love beautiful clothes." When Mother's Day arrives Mrs. Pounce y will spend the day with her daughter and more than two-dozen grandchildren and great grandchil dren. She appealed to the com m u -nity and as a result, Nikki "I'm just s o grateful to the people that helped me out.

Owning a house wasn't on my mind at that time." Ms. Welch said she got in touch with C.O.A.C.H. Foundation founder Rev. Willie G. Dixon and he told her to go to the city and check out their First Time Homebuyers Program. "That got me in touch with Sharon West and she told me to look for a house or pick out a lot where I wanted to have a house constructed. I settled on a corner lot on Ola." Ms. Welch said she lived in the area a while back, and knew it was a nice place to raise her children. "I got into the Affordable Home Ownership Program and that got me to Venetia Brown, who was very helpful and instrumental in making sure I was patient and made sure I got exactly what i wanted." Ms. Welch said she got the opportunity to select everything that went into her new house. The other new home recipient was Marie Louis, who is the mother of six. Ms. Louis also was handed the keys to her new home from Dwin on Tuesday in the 3400 block of Comanche. Ms. Louis, who speaks a little English, arrived in this country 15 years ago with her 6 children from Haiti. At that time, the single mother and her family lived in an apartment. "I know it's hard to find a house. God helped me. He knew we needed a house." As the process began for Ms. Louis, she discovered the house she had set her sights on had been contracted out to another potential buyer. Ainsley Daux, her realtor and interpreter, 'said that deal fell through and after 2 years, Ms. Louis was told she could get the house. She credits the diligence of Daux for making it happen. "This is truly a dream come true. We screamed when the doors opened and we saw the inside. This is the perfect Mother's Day gift. God made sure I got this house." Both homes were fully furnished by the Warrick Dunn Foundation and its partners, Prudential Tropical Realty and Aaron's Sales and Lease: From cleaning supplies to microwaves, the home is furnished top to bottom in an effort to relieve the debt that often comes with the purchase of furniture and equipment that converts a house into a home. Dunn also assisted in covering the closing costs for both homes. The Law omc.s of BRYANT A SCRIVIN, ESQ.

Why would they select a quarterback with the first pick when Donovan McNabb is their man? Donovan was wondering that too. The veteran quarterback said he was shocked when he heard the news. Over the last three seasons, McNabb ranked #1 in passing yards per game, 2nd in touchdowns, and 3rd in quarterback ratings. That's a pretty good record. Still, Donovan is 30-years-old and has ended the last three seasons on the sidelines injured. Maybe it is time for the Eagles to get ready for their future. For now, McNabb is not worried and head coach Reid has said that McNabb is the man, and has nothing to worry about.

De La Hoya-Mayweather Is Richest Fight In History LAS VEGAS --Turns out the obituaries written for boxing were a bit premature. Oscar De La Hoya's fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. set a record for most tele vised buys for a fight, according to figures released Wednesday, surpassing Mike Tyson's second fight with Evander Holyfield and making it boxing's richest event. A total of 2 .15 million households paid $54.95 for the fight, generating revenue of $120 million. The previous record set by TysonHolyfield was 1.99 million buys. A person close to the promotion said De La Hoya would end up making about $45 million for the fight and Mayweather just over $20 million. That person requested anonymity because the promoters did not want offi cial figures released. The $45 million would be the biggest purse paid to a OSCAR DE LA HOYA VS. FLOYD MAYWEATHER, JR. fighter, higher than the $35 million purses Tyson and Holyfield reportedly were paid for the infamous "Bite Fight." Mayweather beat De La Hoya on a split decision Saturday night in ari entertaining fight that drew a record live gate of $19 million at the MGM Grand Garden arena. Mayweather won on two of the three ringside scorecards to win the WBC 154-pound title. The fight will be replayed Saturday at 10 p.m. EDT. sPORTS Panthers Sign Smith To Extension STEVE SMITH CHARLOTTE, NC He's only 5-foot-9, went to junior college, was a third-round draft pick and had trouble controlling his temper. Steve Smith has overcome it all. And on Tuesday he cashed in. Smith agreed to a threeyear contract extension with the Carolina Panthers that will keep him with the team through the 2012 season. His agent, Derrick Fox, said he wasn't authorized to release exact figures, but said the Los Angeles native will be among the five highest-paid receivers in the NFL. The 28-year-old Smith had three years left on a six-year, $27 million contract. He was scheduled to make $3.1, $3.6 and $4.2 million over the next three seasons, but now will make significantly Corrales Remembered Following Fatal Motorcycle Crash LAS VEGAS --To his closest friends and boxing associates, Diego "Chico" Corrales' death in a highspeed motorcycle crash came as no surprise. Corrales' promoter, Gary Shaw, said Corrales, whose career faltered the past two years, recently bought the racing motorcycle he was riding when he was killed. "He fought recklessly and he lived recklessly," Shaw said. "That was his style." Police said Corrales' 2007 Suzuki hit the back of a car Monday evening while trying to pass at high speed on a busy residential street about 7 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip and not far from his home. Corrales, who was wear-DIEGO 'CHICO' CORRALES ing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 7:22 p.m. crash. He was 29. 0.-J. Tossed From Steakhouse On Derby Eve LOUISVILLE, Ky.--The owner of an upscale steakhouse in Louisville said he asked O.J. Simpson to leave his restaurant the night before the Kentucky Derby because he is sickened by the attention Simpson still attracts . "I didn't want to serve him because of my convictions of what he's done to those families," Jeff Ruby said in a telephone interview Tuesday. Ruby who owns restaurants in Cincinnati, Louisville and Belterra, Ind. -said Simpson, who was in town for the Derby on Saturday, came in with a group of about 12 Friqay night and was seated at a table in the back. A customer came up to Ruby O.J. SIMPSON and was "giddy" about seeing Simpson, Ruby said. "I didn't want that experi ence in my restaurant," Ruby said, later adding that seeing Simpson get so much attention "makes me sick to my stomach." Glavine, Bonds Move Closer To Milestones SAN FRANCISCO -Tom Glavine moved a victory closer to 300 and allowed Barry Bonds to hone in on Hank Aaron, too -then the pitcher got his head buzzed like everybody else. After an afternoon of haircuts and team bonding, Glavine won his 294th game despite allowing Bonds' 745th home run, and the New York Mets beat the San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Tuesday night. "But give him credit, when he gets his pitch, he hits it." Bonds moved within 10 homers of Aaron's record 755, connecting on first BARRY BONDS pitch from Glavinc for a solo shot over the center-field wall with one out in the fourth. Bonds' 11th homer of the season pulled the Giants within 4-1.

ormer u 1c ous1ng eside'n'l/ o Join Prestigious New York Law Firm BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Adedayo Banwo never had a p 'roblem staying focused. His mother, Patricia made sure of that. From 1991 through 1994, Adedayo lived in a public housing complex in Tallahassee where he would often listen to students from nearby Florida State University and Florida A&M University encourage him and others to strive on. "We moved to Tampa in 1994 and in to the Robles Park Public Housing Complex. Again, My mother stressed the i:n:tportance r. of staying focused and doing a lot of reading to open my mind." Adedayo graduated from Hillsborough High School in 1998, and thanks to his mother, guidance counselor, All Sports founder Tyrone Keys and a few others, he maintained his goal of one day becoming an attorney.

. RELIGIOUS A New Dwelling For A New Time In this 21st chapter of the Revelations, John gives more details of the vision he is seeing and the words being spoken. The more we are in the spirit of God the more things we can see and hear. John opens in verse one stating that he saw a new heaven and a new earth. This newness is not a new place or new location. It is however a new quality. The .state of existence is going to move from what we live in to eternity. _John also sees a New -Jerusalem, the Holy City (vs. 2). This New Jerusalem came down from Heaven and was already prepared. This new place for dwelling has been hand crafted by God. This brings to mind the saying of Jesus, "I .go to prepare a place for you" (John 14:3). Jerusalem is considered to be a dwelling place for God. Now that this New Jerusalem has come, God will be able to dwell with His people. The words John hears are V':ords that give hope for the future. God himself will dwell with his people.

Some features of metabolic syndrome have been linked to an increased risk of cancer in African-American men, according to a new report in the journal Cancer. What they found was that belly fat, where the waistline is greater than 40 inches, was 80% more common in n1en with prostate cancer than those who were cancer free; and African-American men with high blood pressure or taking blood pressure medications were 2.4-times as likely to have prostate cancer. They also discovered that Black men with any two features of the metabolic syndrome had a higher risk of having prostate cancer, and those with both belly fat and high blood pressure had the highest risk.

AGNES UBANI (813) 3 41-7900 African-American children account for more than one out of four children killed by accidental poisoning in the United States, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most accidental poisonings occur in the home, and m ore than 40% of the time they involve medications, the CDC reports. Cleaners, cosmetics, art s u 1es, care products, plants, pesticides, art supplies, alcoh o l and toys are also responsible for accidental poisoning. Cabinet locks and safety devices can reduce a child's access to poisonous items, says Robin Wilcox, program director of Safe Kids Worldwide.

Up to 70% of women experience migraine around the time of menstruation. When migraine occurs d uring the days preceding menstruation but end when menses starts, it is referred to as a premenstrual syn.: drome (PMS)-related headache. In some cases, oral contraceptives can improve migraines by reducing the number and severity. But that's not always the case because some oral contraceptives can act as a trigger, and are not recommended for women who experience migraines with aura because they can increase the risk of stroke. As women reach menopause and hormone levels fluctuate, the effect on migraines varies. Sometimes menopause makes migraines and the symptoms of nausea and vomiting less severe. However, women who take hormone replacement therapy for symptoms of menopause may find their migraines become more uncomfortable. Reducing the dose of estrogen or changing the type of estro gen preparation can make a difference. Despite the bad news, good news persists. Learning to manage migraines with the right treatment can ensure that women lead normal, productive lives. Problems arise when migraine suffer. ers don't t>:et the help they need. Despite the availability of effective prescription treatments that can reduce migraine severity and pro vide relief from the associated symptoms, nearly 60% of sufferers say they use over the coun!er m.edicines instead.

HEALTH EVENT 300 Men Attend Wellness Plan Forum Former Florida State Senator Les Miller has much to be proud of in his life. His career as a highly regarded elected official from Hillsborough County was an exemplary example of public service. Nonetheless, if you ask him what he is most proud of, he will tell you he is a cancer survivor. For all of the 300 people in attendance who heard him speak at the First Annual Wellness Plan for the Total Man Community Health Forum, it was clear that this is a challenge he is prepared to win again. Les Miller's message was poignant, simple and clear: "African Americans must be screened annually to effectively prevent prostate and colon cancer. Anything less could result in loss of life."

In an article titled "Notes on a Andrea Kelly opens up about her relationship with the superstar, the raising of their three children -two girls, ages 9 and 7, and a 5-year old boy -and her husband's alleged sex tape with a girl said to be 14. Although Andrea Kelly has never seen the footage and never actively sought to do so, she firmly believes that the man in the tape is not her husband. "C'mon, she said. "Who would believe all that? That's why they call them allegations," she said of his numerous criminal counts of child pornography. Despite her avid support for the R&B crooner, Andrea. Kelly says she will not accompany him to court during his trial because she prefers to be home with their children. "I will take care of the home front," she said. "There is a war going on, "and they don't send every soldier to Iraq. I've got to be homeland defense." "I know the allegations against my husband don't reflect on me as an individual,': she "They don't reflect on me as a mom or as a wife, and they don't Andrea Lee Kelly talks about the sex tape; the child porn charges and lots more in new issue. reflect on me in my everyday life .... [But) I don't want to sit here and act as if I have some halo over my head. A person has to ask, 'How much did I allow?' In fact, it was the children who encouraged Andrea Kelly to remain silent for so long as allegations and rumors about the artist swirled around her. "They may say, 'Moni and Dad went through a storm,' she said. "But it's not the storm I want them to remember, it's how their mom came out of it." The Kellys first met when Andrea was 20 and auditioned to be a dancer for his "12 Play" tour. She got the gig and was soon promoted to choreographer. It was during this time that Kelly, then 27, married Aaliyah, then 15. The union was later annulled, clearing the way for Andrea and Kelly to become "a love story," she says. They married in 1996, when she was 22.

ENTERTAINMENT Bone Thugs Continue To Bury Hatchet With Twista Bone Thugs-N-Harmony members are living up to the group name with their new track "C-Town," which features a guest turn from their former rival, Twista. "We're unifying the Midwest. We had problems in the beginning, but that's too long ago to bring up," said group member Layzie Bone says of their former feud. "We're making music, man." "C-Town" will on the Cleveland group's new album "Strength & Loyalty," due May 8 via Full Surface/Interscope. It's the third collaboration between Twista (Carl Terrell Mitchell) and members of Bone. since their beef over who best represents the Midwest began in the early 90s. Twista guested on the Layzie Bone track "Midwest Invasion," which first appeared on the 2005 X.Ray compilation "This is Hip-. Hop." And Krayzie Bone joined Twista for "Spit Your Game" on last year's Notorious B.I.G. project "Duets: the Final Chapter. BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY And1WISTA "It definitely was a rivalry at one time, -but it was all senseless, nonsense," says Krayzie. "We were just young and not even realizing what was going on. Now we're like, 'Man, what were we even beefing about?' We don't even know like, who rapped the fastest or whatever. It really didn't make sense. Now we're like, instead of beefing we can make money together." "" Sharpton March Targets Record Labels Spike Lee Saluted By Film Society ALSHARPTON Civi l Rights activist AI Sharpton followed through with plans to march against record labels Thursday to protest racist and sexist lan guage in the music industry. Some 400 people gathered for the midtown Manhattan trek past Universal Music Group and other record company buildings, shouting chants such as "Decency Now" and "Enough ts Enough." "We're saying there must be one standard. You can't have different standards for different people," said Sharpton. "Onc e we finish with the record companies, we must deal with the HBOs and others." Spike Lee was the man of honor at the San Francisco International Film Festival, where he was giveri the events Film Society Directing Award -originally dubbed the Kurosawa Award. The filmmaker, who premiered his career-launching film "She's Gatta Have It" at the festival in 1986, was feted with a clip reel and onstage chat with critic Wesley Morris before a full house at the Castro Theatre, reports Variety Two parts were shown from his four-hour documentary "When the Levee Breaks," which chronicled the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. "Please do not leave this theatre thinking that everything in New Orleans is OK now," he told the crowd. "People are still in a bad-way there. They feel they were abandoned by the government."

The two Language Arts teachers gave up their conference periods, remained after school, and offered tutoring in the community at the annual Bles'd Productions tutoring camp on weekends.

"We also provided incentives to encourage them as much as possible." "We sometimes collaborat ed with Dr .Alyndria Miller, guidance counselor at Eisenhower Middle School on how we could help children in the community who are unable to remain in after school programs. As a result, Dr. Miller opened her own tutoring service, Pretty Smart Kids," said Dr. Tucker-Wicks.

Vincent Taylor, the author of the highly anticipated children's chapter book, presents a publication that is a humor ous yet poignant story of a kid (Cornbread) who has a deep love for music. His passion leads to an obsession where he's constantly reprimanded for beating on objects to pro duce his favorite sound. Well, one day Cornbread's habit will lead to an accident that involves his little sister named Tiffany and a pot of boiling hot water. There is always a necessity for rich, multicultural literature in our schools and libraries. This is why Cornbread is such a huge magnet cators the country. "With there being an enormous disparity in academic achievement between males and females, I wanted to have a book that catered to our young guys, especially those who are reluctant readers," says Mr. Taylor. In addition to the publica tion, Mr. Taylor offers a free this feature because the questions correlate with the vari ous skills students are tested on during their state standardized test," explains Nicole Barker, a 3rd grade teacher in Hillsborough County Public Schools. Mr. Taylor, along with Cornbread the mascot, conducts energetic workshops at schools across the country entitled 'How a Booll is Published'. Books in the Cornbread series are only $5.

RODERICK FORD I Workplace Survival Tip #61 I Congress enacted the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) of 1978 in order to clarify that gender discrimination under Title VII included discrimination on the basis of pregnancy. The Act expressly states that discrimination on the basis of gender includes, but is not limited to, discrimination due to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. The PDA's provisions also expressly provide for the equal treatment of pregnant women. The PDA mandates that if an employer permits time off of non-pregnant employees who are ill, then it must also do the same for a pregnant employee, who is, e.g., experiencing morning sickness or other pregnancy-related problem. The PDA also mandates that employers treat pregnant employees the same as other similarly-situated workers for employment purposes, with respect to the receipt of benefits. ., For additional information, please contact 5 Roderick 0.

LAURA MAE CHAMBERS 1910-1981 Dedicated in memory of my mother, LauraMae Chambers, and thanking God for a wonderful experience in sharing my 'mom.' Oh look and see how blessed we be to have had a mother to share with each other; who taught us the way and how to pray, to give of ourselves each and every day; who made us eat veggies and all the foods on our plate building strong minds, bodies and souls without a stomach ache. Who listened with her heart, hearing our deepest worries then sharing her own experiences of God's grace and glories; who was a part of the village, embracing each and every child, chastising, encouraging and keeping us from going wild; who dressed us up, took us to church and made us par ticipate; teaching morals, respect, integrity and how to walk by faith; who taught us to proudly lift our voices and sing "Songs of Praise," knowing the peace and comfort, the words would g"ive in coming days. Who taught us reading writing, and arithmetic for dividing fact from fiction and creating positive . . 1 at our hearts content, providing an outlet for hardships1 : stress; oppre5sion and who taught'us of God's amazing grace io carry us through this awesom e, sometimes lonely race. Who taught us, 'we're never alone if we let God lead us' for surely goodness and m ercy shall follow and protect us; who taught us of Alpha and Omega, the begin ning and the ending and throu gh Him, we have everlaSting life and will see her again. While Mother" is gone, her legacy lives on. Now, can't you just look and see how blessed we be to have had a mother to share with eachother. Mikki Chambers
