Graduate Overcomes Obstacles To Walk With Class BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer Two years ago, Kierra Cherry came home from school and complained of not feeling well. She lost her appetite and just didn't feel well, her mother, Mrs. Marjorie Cherry said. She was a lOth grader in the Commercial Arts Program at Tampa Bay Technical High School. Kierra planned to become a Fashion Designer Mrs. Cherry made an appointment with the doctor and took her daughter. After obtaining the results of the blood test, the teenager was admitted to St. Joseph's Hospital. Mrs. Cherry said Kierra lost between 10 and 15 pounds in a two week period After two weeks, she was released and the scene repeated itself over and over again with no improvement in her condition. Kierra was diagnosed as having Lupus. There is no cure for the disease and Mrs. Cherry said doctors have been unable to determine how Kierra became stricken with the disease. There is no fami ly history of it. "She seemed to get progressively worse. She couldn't walk and got really sick. In November 2005, she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital. She stayed in a coma for nearly a week," Mrs. Cherry said. Mrs. Cherry said Kierra had blood transfusions and her chances of survival didn't look promising. But she came out of the coma. Kierra then had to relearn how to walk and talk. "At the end of this traumatic ordeal, she was released from the hospital weighing a mere 87 pounds. She was ready to give up on school, friends, and even life as we know it. But through prayer and the support of family and some very good friends, she persevered and was able to catch up and keep us with her class through the hospital homebound program," Mrs. Cherry said. Although Kierra had bouts of depression, she never gave up. She continued with the homebound program and has earned her credits to graduate. Her mother said she even made the Principal's Honor Roll the last grading period. Kierra is the oldest of three children born to William and Marjorie Cherry and a member of Revealing Truth Ministries. Kierra still has limitations, but her dream was to march with the Commercial Arts group during graduation. Her caseworker talked with the school and her wish ill be ful filled. "She was so excited to learn that she would be allowed to walk with her class. FEATURES Teacher's Aide Is Recipient Of $10,000 School Award Several weeks ago, Hillsborough County School District employees nominated individuals they felt deserved the "We Deliver" Award. The nominations were submitted on-line and more than 700 names were submitted. A committee had the awesome task of narrowing the field from 358 nominees down to 42, and then selecting 4 finalists. Superintendent Elia made the final decision. Among those was Mrs. Sadie Douglas, a Teacher's Aide at Seminole Heights Elementary School. Mrs. Douglas' name was nominated by 62 co-workers, parents, and former students. One parent told of having lost her husband to a heart attack and then having to have heart surgery in December. "Mrs. Douglas not only brought prepared meals, she also took my daughter witQ her for some play time. I think God put certain people in your life for a reason." A former student wrote, "She shares her home, gives you things like clothes without even asking her. If you don't have a car, she'll pick you up and take you wherever you need to go. n Mrs. Douglas said, "I love the gift but, to know what the kids think about me makes me cry. I love people; I love kids; but most of all I Mrs. Sadie Douglas, a Teacher's Aide at Seminole Heights Elementary School, was surprised when School Superintendent MaryEllen Elia presented her with a $10,000 check and a dozen roses. She was chosen as the "We Deliver" Award recipient. She is shown with Superintendent Elia and her principal, Ms. Jackie Masters. like to see happiness on their faces. I never knew how many adults were vowing for this award, but I was glad to know there are others out there that care as well. "What a great thing to happen so close to Mother's Day. I am still celebrating in my community, at my church, in my home. Everywhere I go people are hugging me, thanking me for what I do, it seems like everybody knows me. I feel so very special, so happy, nothing can stop me now," Mrs. Douglas said. Mrs. Douglas is a speech, language, and hearing aide at the school. She has worked with students in the district for the past 25 years. -She has been assigned to Seminole Heights Elementary School since 2003. This is the second prestigious honor for Mrs. Douglas in as many months. In March, she was chosen as the Foster Parent of the Year. Mrs. Douglas and her husband, Elder Robert Douglas, have opened the doors of their home and raised several foster children through the years. The other finalists, Dora Haiat, helps exceptional education students who have aged out of regular school live independent lives; Tammy Crawford-Morse, who works with the east region adult and community education program; and Barbara Baker, a kindergarten teacher at Alafia Elementary School. finalists received flowers, a personal n "ote from Superintendent Elia, and a $1,000 check.

Disability Didn't Stop Young Man From Graduating On October 31, 1984, Carolyn Gilbert gave birth to a healthy boy. She named him Denario and as a singleparent, devoted all of her time to him. While living in public hous ing, Denario developed leadpaint poisoning at the age of 3. "I remember we were at the barbershop when he went into a seizure. From that point, he started having in excess of 30 seizures a day. He was recently diagnosed with a form of epilepsy." Ms. Gilbert said doctors had told her not to expect her son to live pas the age of 8. She never accepted that diag nosis, and was referred to a doctor in Miami who performed surgery on Denario, removing part of his brain. "He had to learn to walk and talk all over again, but throughout it all, I never gave up on him. The seizures don't come as often and he DENARIO GILBERT trembles a lot, but other than that he's a sharp young man." Ms. Gilbert enrolled her son at Manhattan Exception School, then later at LaVoy Exceptional School when he was almost 6 years old. Now at the age of 22, Denario Gilbert will be graduating from Lavoy under the tutorage of Ms. Peggy Van\Tiellit as an "A" student, "He is still developmentally challenged, but everyday he surprises me with more and more things he can do I thought were out of his capacity," said Ms. Gilbert. Ms. Gilbert said she's very proud of her son, and proud of herself for never taking no for an answer when she tried to get him help. "It hasn't been easy. As a single parent with no government help, working, and having to raise my dead sister's 3 children, it's been tough. But I prayed a lot and got through it all. "My advice to anyone is to always put God first look for that light at the end of the tunn.el. You'd be surprised what you can do with a little faith." .' Ms. Gilbert said was to one day become a baseball star. Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at 248-0724, or e-mailed at leonflsentineLcom. !'"'

FEATURES Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed In Police Shooting BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel StaffWriter Shortly before 8:30 p m., on May 19, 2005, Musa Akil Masomakali Yazid (also known as Gregory Tyrone Sanderson), was stopped by Tampa police in front of 4205 Riverhills Drive. Yazid was stopped for reportedly running a stop sign. In less than 30 minutes, he was dead. On Wednesday, Tampa Attorney Barry Cohen filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of his estate. During a press conference, Attorney Cohen said, "We're filing this civil lawsuit because of conduct unbecoming an officer. We see too much ofthis, especially in the African American community. The only thing they respond to are getting the news before the public and it needs to be brought to the attention of the public. If you don t go pub lic things won't change and they 'll just keep on doing it. Attorney Cohen said the officers stated that Yazid was shot because one of the officers was in danger. However, he said, ther e is no factual basis to support that claim. "He gave therr. a false name He told them he worked some place that he didn't. But that is no reason to summarily execute him . Both officers were stand-MUSAYAZID AND FAMILY ing beside his vehicle Even if he did rev the motor, the offi cers were never in danger, all they had to do was step back. Attorney Cohen further stated that prior to the shoot ing, each officer (identified as David Joyner, 32, and Jason Brocato,. 24), had each shot Yazid three times with their tasers. He also pointed out that there wa s no evidence that Yazid exhibited any violent tendencies. "His brother was there, but they wouldn't .even let his brother be with him as he lay Top Tampa FBI Agent Announces Retirement BY ANTI ONE DAVIS Sentinel Staff Writer The top FBI agent in the region, and the first African American to l ea d the agency's Tampa division, has announced his retirement.

It's a hrase that's been embraced and popularized in and out side of the hip-hop circle. It's mblazoned on t-shirts, shouted out in rap lyrics and as even inspired a moveent. The campaign, esigned to influence youth o refrain from assisting authorities, has become so opular that both the ABC and CNN television networks have devoted entire specials to the subject. The issue is fascinating to mainstream America. To them, it's unfathomable that a person would refuse to help solve a crime, simply because it's the cool thing to do. For the average suburbanite, part of being good and decent human beings involves removing the criminal element from their community. As shocking as i t may sound, I can't say that I disagree with them. The snitching code doesn't apply .to civilians. It is a mantra adopted by organized criminals who know that a majority of all crimes solved, involve inside sources who notify the police. In prison and in outlaw circles, being a "rat" or snitch" could have your head removed from your shoulders, literally. To a person living a life of crime, being labeled an. informer is equivalent to running thro.ugh the streets of Iraq siniing God Bless America. It's just that detrimental.

However, in the holy vated to live a righteous life city there is no need for a tern-ecause .everyone WI e in the presence of God _and there will be constant worship and communion. That is moti vation; to get there so you can live a life in the eternal presence of God As if that was not enough motivation, there was more. He speaks in several verses that there is no need for lights, lamps, moon, or sun. In the new city Jesus is all the illumination that is needed. This gives real meaning to words, "We'll walk in the Light". In the New Jerusalem you never have to worry about the darkness of life or dark nights. Jesus will indeed be the Light of the world. God gives His people more than enough to be motivated about. Have you ever had a taste for some fruit? You tried to go to the produce market and they did not have any because it was out of season. Perhaps it was its season but the crop was no good because of a drought. Fruit is a healthy nutrient for life We are also commanded to bare fruit. Here in the city there never has to be any con -cern about being able to bare fruit or eat fruit. In the new city there is a river of life that runs through the city that pro vides a constant refreshing flow to all trees. This water is so healthy and pure it allows the trees to bare fruit every month (vs 22: 2) Because of the river and the constant bearing of fruit there will be no famine in the city and all will be healthy. ensure are healthy the green leaves on the trees are for healing (vs. 2). In many places vegetation has more than a use for food. Many nations believe that there are healing properties in vegetation The leaves on the trees in the new city will have healing properties. Regardless of the sickness (mentally, physicallk' _; PASTOR FRANK & MINISTER DARLA WATSON or emotionally) there is a constant source ofhealirig With all these things considered John gives good benefits for us to be motivated to live right. When you consider that you have an opportunity to spend eternity with God in a city where there is no darkness and a fresh supply of nutrition, you should be motivated. What is your motivation?

LOCAL Solid Waste Plans To Build Drop Off Center In Black Community BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Of the 52 illegal dumping sites identified in the City of Tampa, 36 of them are in East Tampa. David McCary, Director of the city's Solid Waste. Department, said the reason the East Tampa sites are so dominate is because of their locations. "The illegal dumping sites in East Tampa are on dead end roads, side streets, or in areas that have signs that say no illegal dumping. Most. are in areas that are not well lit. McCary said the city, along with Environmental Officers are working to not make those sites attractive to illegal dumpers, and there have been arrests made. During a meeting last Tuesday with the East T a m p a Community Revitalization Partnership, McCary presented a proposal to con-struct a DAVID MCCARY Neighborhood Drop Off Center on a 22-acre wooded city lot on a dead end stretch of 22nd Street, just north of Sligh Avenue and behind a TECO Operations Center. In 2005, the ,City Council approved about $275,000 to build the drop off center with plans of building more in the future. "If you're a citizen, please report illegal dumpers through community involvement," said McCary. True Faith Inspirational Baptist Church 2526 W. Sligh Avenue, Tampa, FL 336H (one bloc k west of Armenia) "The problem is some areas are isolated and are perfect illegal dumping sites." McCary said he's pleased with the help of the Environmental Officers who have been patrolling the illegal dumping sites, and the East Tampa Partnership was very receptive of his proposal. McCary said the site will be staffed 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the summer, 7:30 a.m. to 5 :30 p m during the winter, and half-a-day on Sundays. East Tampa Partnership Chairman Sam Kinsey said illegal dumping has been a big concern for his group. 'To help keep East Tampa clean, we created a division with the Clean City Division exclusively for East Tampa. We've also hired 2 Environmental Detectives for East Tampa. Kinsey pointed out that people arrested for illegal dumping could face felony charges and their vehicies seized N o TIF

Not only did he have the privilege of coaching his son, K.J. Pierce, but also the late Cedric "CJ" Mills. Clark said he had coached Mills since 9th grade, and his loss was very painful. "That kid sowed strength as a 9th grader when he knocked an All-American player on his back. I think he would have been the best we've seen in this area in a long time." But Clark's son, K.J., is also quite an athlete. Before his son transferred to Tampa Catholic, recruiters from at least 10 schools had been checking him out. "But when he transferred, they kind of lost contact with him." As Pierce completed his senior season this year at Tampa Catholic, he hadn't received any scholarship offers. That's when Tyrone Keys of All Sports Community Service and his father stepped in. As a result, Pierce was able to get a 4-year scholarship to attend Howard University in Washington, D.C. Although he played outside linebacker and strong safety in high school, Pierce will be a strong safety at Howard. "I just wanted to leave Florida to play college ball," said Pierce. "I wanted to experience another area other than Tampa.

Woo.ds Has Second Laser Eye Surgery Tiger Woods was once so nearsighted he said he would be considered legally blind without glasses or contacts. He had Lasik surgery in October 1999 after the Ryder Cup, won the Disney Classic in his first tournament back and has done fairly well since. He realized this spring it was time to do it again. "My vision started slipping," Woods said after The Players Championship. "I was getting headaches from squinting all the time." He said he had laser surgery for the second time the Monday after the Masters. "Mine stayed the way it should for ... what is it, eight years now?" Woods said. "That's pretty good." Just as in 1999, Woods won his first tournament after eye surgery when hE:! captured the TIGER WOODS Wachovia Championship by two shots. But that's where the similarity ends. His victo ry at Disney in 1999 was the second of consecutive PGA Tour victories. Woods tied for 37th last week; his WIJrst finish since missing the cut at the U.S. Open last summer.

The Minnesota Vikings first-round draft pick will not need surgery to repair a collarbone that was broken twice last season, an injury that may have caused him to slip to the seventh pick in April's NFL draft. The Vikings said Wednesday that the injury was healing fine on its own and they will not have to insert a protective plate to prevent further injury, a pro cedure that would have kept the former Oklahoma running back out of action for three to six months. The team said Peterson will be ready for contact drills when training camp opens. "We felt the fracture was well on its way," team physi cian Dr. Joel Boyd said. 'We thought it would be best to let it heal in a natural way." .Johnson Will Meet With Goodell CHICAGO --Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson is scheduled to discuss his off-field problems with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a meeting Wednesday.

Former Mayor Andrew Young, a li eutenant of her father's who has remained close to the f a mil y, said King was going to her brother Dexter's home when she collapsed in his doorway Her death came less than a year and a half after her mother, Coretta Scott King, in January 2006 after battling ovarian cancer and the effects of a stroke.

B Organization Has. History Of Helping Youths Realize Dreams BY ANTI ONE DAVIS Sentinel Staff Writer James Evans started the Tampa Bay Academy of Hope in 1996 eager t o help underprivileged Hillsborough County students excel in their academi c achievement. Since then, the local non-profit organization has expanded to 17 schools in the county, and has a college-entry rate of 95 percent. "This organization was started on a shoestring budget, and it has now become one of the most respected and increasingly needM ed services in the community today," said Evans, the Academy's President I Founder. I truly believe that b y working together we can make a difference in the lives of the young people in this community. The students here are proving that you can overcome obstacles, as well become productive people in the community Roughly 90 students annually participate in the Tampa Bay Academy of Hope's Leadership Through Education Program. Evans is hoping that the upcoming Harvest of Hope Charity Awards Banquet will help the organization continue serving the community. "Funding for the Tampa Bay Academy of Hope has come up short over past few years as the government grants and contributions have been cut back JAMES EVANS Founder I President Tampa Bay Academy of Hope, Inc. and stretched very thin," Evans said. "However, the need for keeping kids in school, raising their self-esteem, keeping them from gangs, drugs and alcohol and helping them with their aca demic achievement could not be greater. The Tampa Bay Academy of Hope is looking to raise $300,000 at their annual event. The Harvest for Hope Charity Awards Banquet and Fundraiser will be held on June 16th at the A La Carte Pavilion located at 4050 Dana Shores Drive For more information, please call the Tampa Bay Academy of Hope at (813) 277-0464, or go to www.tampabayharvestofhope.com.

Well Titans, four years have gone by so fast, and boy was it a long journey. High school for me was full of good times and times when I just didn't want to get out of bed. I've had my share of drama, pain, and stress, and I _learned a lot. High school is a right of pas sage. But I know everything happens for a reason and I am blessed to have made it this far. I will be graduating along with other Class of 2007 graduates from Tampa Bay Tech on May 24, 2007 at the Florida State Fairgrounds at 7 p. m. My advice to the senior class of 2007, is to never give up on your dreams, don't let nothing stand in your way of success. My future plans include attending North Carolina Central University to major in mass communications with a concentration in print journalism. Hopefully one day you will be reading more of my work. Until then, stay blessed and it has been my pleasure bringing you Titan Territory! Shoutouts: my big bro Doug, and to all the people who helped me survive high school: Miche D. Trigg, Britney, Jerrany, Jarvis, Greg, Jarett, Ayanna, Jerlisa, Paulethia, Marissa, Keyosha, Viva, Michele, Mike, my family, Rollend, Nae and my high school teachers. My advice to the Class of 2008: "Be the best person that you can be, succeed for you, don't ever let anyone tell you your dreams aren't possible."

Because most allergic reactions to food occur as a result of eating something that was believed to be safe, it is especially important to learn how to "Be a PAL (Protect A Life from food allergies)." All it takes is five easy steps: Never take food allergies lightly Eight foods account for 90% of all allergic reactions in the U.S : Milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans, etc.), wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish. Don't share food with friends who have food allergies. Wash hands after eating. Ask what your friends are allergic to, and helpthem avoid those foods. "Over the last 10 years, we've seen a dou bling of the incidence of food allergies in chil dren," says Anne MuOoz-Furlong, FAAN CEO and founder. If a friend who has food allergies becomes ill, get help immediately. For info visit, www.foodallergy.org. Health Tips Best Healing Turmeric: Ease Arthritis A heaping helping of curry could relieve your pain. That's because turmeric, a spice used in curry, contains curcumin, a powerful antiinflammatory that works similarly to Cox-2 inhibitors, drugs that reduce the Cox-2 enzyme that causes the pain and swelling of arthritis. It Might Also: Prevent colon cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Curcumin can ltelp shrink precancerous lesions known as colon polyps, when taken with a small amount of quercetin, a powerful antioxidant found in onions, apples, and cabbage. In a 2006 study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, researchers at UCLA also found that curcumin helps clear the brain of the plaques that are char acteristic of the disease. Maximize The Benefits: Add the spice to your cooking whenever possible. For a therapeutic dose, James A. Duke, PhD, author of The Green Pharmacy, suggests 400 mg of curcumin extract three times daily. In a recent study of type 2 diabetics, taking cinnamon extract daily sue cessfully reduced blood sugar by about 10%. . It Mirht Also: Lower cho-. Wake Up Tired Eyes Two simple techniques to refresh your eyes. Eye irritation is a very modern annoyance: More than 14% of people who go to an optometrist complain of eye problems related to working at a computer, according to a survey done at the University of California, Berkeley. You can prevent some dry ness by remembering to blink regularly. Also, these two simple massages will help stimulate the tear ducts that moisten and refresh your eyes. I often do both, one after another. If you wear contact lenses, 'be sure to remove them first. 1. Rub hands together to warm them up. Rest elbows on a table and cup hands over both eyes, with heels of palms on cheeks. Take a few deep breaths, then move hands higher and gently apply light pressure to each eye with heel of palm. Hold for a moment, then release. 2. Use thumbs, to gently massage your brow, starting between eyebrows and moving toward temples. Repeat, using fingertips to ;;;. apply light pressure to the same spots (see photo). When finished, open your eyes wide and take several deep, relaxing breaths.

HEALTH -Oral Sex Unkecl To Throat Researchers have found that the human papilloma virus increases the risk of throat cancer for those who contract the virus through unprotected oral sex, according to The Washington Post. Medical experts say the relationship between orally contracted HPV and oral cancer may explain rising rates of oral cancer among younger patients who do have the usual risk factors of heavy drinki'ng or smoking. Herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, HIV and other STDs can all be spread through unprotected oral sex. Skin Cancer Myths Can Delay Treatment For instance, while Whites are 10 times more likely to be diagnosed with melanoma than other races, studies show that AfricanAmericans are more likely to develop the condition on non-sun-exposed areas of the body such as the nails, soles of the feet, palms of the hands, mouth, nasal Dermatologists are con-passages and genitals. cerned that myths about One study showed that melanoma-the most seri-while. 90 percent of ous form of skin cancer that Caucasian patients develop accounts for more than 75 melanoma on skin that is percent of skin cancer regularly sun-exposed, only deaths arc causing too 33 percent of African. many _P.eopl_ e tp ....

Aromntherapy relies on essential oils from flowers, leaves, fruit, bark, resin, and roots to case stress, increase alertness, and soothe muscles. The fragrances may trigger memories that relax the body; they might even alter the brain chemistry that plays a role in how you feel pain. Aromas do boost energy and' improve mood. A small study led by Wheeling Jesuit University researchers showed that sniffing peppermint oil-infused air cut car-trip fatigue by 17%.

No, it's "de plane, de plane!" Eddie Murphy is set to star in a big-screen adaptation of Fantasy Island, the Aaron Spelling-produced primetime soap that ran from 1978-1984 on ABC and made a white-suited star of Ricardo Montalban, who played the island's mysteri ous owner, Mr. Roarke. As he's wont to do, Murphy will play multiple characters in the film, which is being written by Norbit co-scribes Jay Scherick and David Rom, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Of course, aside from Roarke, the most memorable actor from the TV series was Herve Villechaize as Tattoo, whose French-accented cry of "De plane! De plane!" ended up being the show's trademark line. While Villechaize's little person stature would be a stretch for Murphy, one can't put anything past the recent Academy Award nom inee, who's been fat, white, a woman and otherwise mired in in multiple films. Murphy most recently went under the prosthetics EDDIE MURPHY for Norbit which, although critically panned, made more than $157 million worldwide (half that of The Nutty Professor, but not bad for being nowhere near as good). Before the Dreamgirls star has a chance to make anyone's dreams come true-fora price-on Fantasy Island, however, he's set to star in the sci-fi comedy Starship Dave, about a troop of aliens who travel in a spaceship that looks like a human being. Trouble arises when the personable-looking UFO falls for an Earth-bound woman. This one bombs, er, blasts into theaters in May 2008.

ENTERTAINMENT 'TI ::0 c )> More Rejection For Michael's Would-Be Baby Mama LOS ANGELES --The self-proclaimed mother of Michael Jackson's children is down, but not entirely out. A Los Angeles judge Wednesday rejected Nona Paris Lola Jackson's latest bid to insert herself into the custody arrangement between Jackson and ex wife Debbie Rowe. But the judge did not dis miss the woman, giving her until Aug 1 to get her legal act together, and letting her try again, per a local wire report. Attorneys for Michael Jackson and Rowe did not return calls for comment. Michael Jackson's rep previously branded Nona Jackson's case "ludicrous." The Jackson known as Nona is seeking ... Well, she's seeking quite a bit, including Neverland Ranch, child support and shared custody of Michael Jackson's th.ree children, Prince, 10, Paris, 9, and Prince II, better known as the balcony-dangled Blanket, 5. Rowe, who was married to Michael Jackson from 1996 +;o 1999, is regarded by the world, save Nona Jackson's corner of it, to be the birth mother of the two oldest dren; the parentage of Blanket has never been pre -crst!ly-'tletermined, or at. least. announced. Nona Jackson, a "black MICHAEL JACKSON Jew born in Britain," per her own court papers, launched her challenge last October. She claimed that she and Michael Jackson were a "sexually active couple," and that as a result of all that activity she had given birth to the singer's brood. The woman's first bid to alter the Michael JacksonRowe custody deal was rejected last November, and for the same reason it was rejected Wednesday: because she didn't follow the rules. Per the judge, Nona Jackson hasn't shown the court that she's properly noti fied Michael Jackson and Rowe of her filing. Also, there's the matter of her motherhood claim: She hasn't proved that, either. Then as now, the London based Nona Jackson attended the court hearing via speakerphone. More Drama With DisneY's 'Frog Princess' As previously reported, Disney has received a num-. her of complaints regarding alleged racial and ethnic insensitivities that popped up in its original announcement of the film, "The Princess and the Frog," which is due to be released in 2009.

'(The \lt'Jice Our Commwzitv Speaking for Itself' 813) 248-1921 Nephu Says R Kelly/Usher Did Not Steal 'Same Girl' Responding to an Internet rumor, the R&B group Nephu says that R Kelly and Usher's current single, "Same Girl," is actually the same song they recorded over a year ago, but it was not stolen by the superstars as has been reported. "That is factually incorrect," says R&B group Nephu's attorney, Leron Rogers in a letter addressed to MediaTakeOut.com, the gossip Website that recently published the article, "Busted: R Kelly and Usher stole their new song 'Same Girl."' The article alleges that Atlanta-based Nephu was the original owner of the song and that it was used without permission by Ursh and Kells. However, a lawyer for Nephu says the group recorded the song over a year ago, but their record label decided not to keep the song for their album. Later, the song's owners (the producer and writer) sold it to R Kelly. "Nephu has never alleged USHER, R. KELLY AndNEPHU that neither R Kelly nor Usher stole the song 'Same Girl.' This site has once again, printed grossly factually incorrect information," said Nephu's attorney, Leron Rogers, in the letter. Rogers demanded an immediate correction and requested that the article be removed from the Web site. Meanwhile, Nephu's new single, "Weather Man" feat. DJ Junk, is due for release this week.

. LOCAL Fitness Center Ovvner Teaches Importance Of Control BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Cregory Boatwright became a fitness instructor after suffering a back injury. "I was playing college foot ball, and after the injury, I had to stay in shape. I always enjoyed working out, and when I walked into a gym in 1985, I got hooked and knew that's what I wanted to do. Boatwright said when it comes to fitness, the part that's taken for granted is prevention. "We complain about aches, pains and diseases without realizing being fit will prevent most of that. Jus t taking better care of your hody will prevent a lot of the suf fering "In today' s society there's more of a need for fitness. This country has the most overweight people in the w orld Boatwright teaches h ealth and fitness at Springfield College as well as owning his own cente r O p t i mal Health And Fitness on Busch Bou l evard. think you: have t o spend hours getting fit. That's not true. It' s all about time management and allowing a professional to guid e you. "You have to sto p m aking promises you don't intend on k eeping, We t end to take fitness for granted until we're forced to get in shape. As you g e t older, you lo s e m us cl e mass and bone density. T h e b enefits of being fit are unlim ited." Boatwright gives p e opl e an overall wellness assessment. He said he believes in a b a l anced approached to eating instead of dieting. "I think the wor d die t s cares a lot o f people. Just balance what you eat and exercise.

Boatwright said even more i mportan t is the n eed to teach our children physi cal fitness. "Par ents don' t teach t heir kids how to eat healthy and the schools also need to prepare healthier m eals for them. The school s are starting to realize that and have nutrition specialist in their kitchens. We just need to get the parents to come aboard."

They weren't the faceless voices you hear when you go to clubs these days They were right out front, and were as popular as the music they played. Perhaps the most popular and innovative disc jockeys to ever sit behind a turntable was Robert "Boneshaker" Waters. Waters passed away two weeks ago from medical complications due to his diabetes He was 50 years old Boneshaker was perhaps the father of all DJs, and every successful DJ today owes his place behind the turntables to this man. C "Boneshaker gained his Z name from. the music he < ROBERT "BONESHAKER" WATERS > played," said Leon Jones. ( "He would make your U) bones shake and you had to get up and dance when he t-was spinning the records." One of Boneshaker's four W children, Chris Brown, said Gi he gained know ledge of his c father's popularity from all the people he helped U) throughout the years. and I know he played at virtually every club in Tampa. What a lot of people didn't know about him was what he did away from the club. He was a Mason, drove trucks, and started his own DJ pro duction company. "He was a very busy man. back to Florida, and everyone always wanted him to work." Brown said other disc jockeys his father helped through the years told him about all the special events Waters did for the children and for close friends ::i "I knew he was a disc jock ey for more than 27 years, Q. He traveled a lot from Tallahassee to Georgia and A lot of the clubs that Waters made famous aren't around anymore Places like Big Joe's, the Blue Diamond, z D AY! the Original Lounge, ...J ...J ::l m ...:.. w z i= z w (/) a: 0 ...J LL. ...

Get it Right. Fame and Fortune is in Your House and Prop erty Sell It Today Right Away! Psychedelic Shack, the Hideaway Lounge, and a few others gained their fame due to this Central Park raised man. Services for Boneshaker will begin at 2 p. m. Saturday at Morning Glory Funeral Chapel on Nebraska Avenue. Because Waters had no insurance at the time of his death, family members would appreciate any assistance in helping them cover funeral expenses. Donations may be left at the funeral home in his name. Support T h e F l orida Sentinel Advertisers Promoter Wants To Reverse Music Trends In Tampa ANTHONY "BIG AMP" PARKER Anthony "Big Amp" Parker has traveled to virtually e very music mecca in the country. He's spent a lot of time in Atlanta and Tampa, but feels drawn to. Tampa because of the amount of talent here. Big Amp is CEO of Earthwake Entertainment and Promotions, and along with C. Wakely, Big Cee Jay, and J-Holla, is trying to get a message out to any one involved in music. "We want to assist other companies by first seeing what their needs are and then by developing a game plan structured directly for those needs. Once the game plan ,has been drawn, then we move on to help the company with the follow through." Among Big Amp's clients are artist Blood Raw, Tight Work Records, Kim Ellis, and Drak Boy Records. "I have others, but they are still in the development stages. Just keep yo _ur eyes open for them. "With Blood Raw, we do everything for him. All he has to do is be the artist. W e run his label, C. Wakely is in charge of his management, and Big Cee Jay is in charge of his promotions All he has to do is rap." Big Amp and Earthwake recently sat down with L.A Reid, and said the meeting was a milestone in his career "We need to reverse the trend in Tampa of not following through on records. The industry is laughing at us and others are capitalizing on things Tampa is known for. "The people that are in position to make moves have to spread the knowledge and accept responsibility as a whole and that includes myself as well.

On Sunday, May 20th, the aisles of the Cathedral of Faith Church will be filled with a broad array of graduation regalia that will be worn by 15 graduates of the Hillsborough County School System. The pomp and cir cumstance of "Lift High The Lord Our Banner" will be played as these graduates from Blake, Chamberlain, Hillsborough, King, East Bay and Riverview high schools enter the sanctuary for their Baccalaureate Services. For several years riow, Baccalaureate Services at the Cathedral of Faith Church bas been a significant and historic occasion for Bishop J. H. Bowell and Co-Pastor Marzetta Bowell-and their congregation The Bishop recalls the days when a religious service, or baccalaureate, was a mandatory part of the high school graduation activities, but realizes that these services are not. so popular because of a need to "avoid any notion that religion is being promoted in public schools." Baccalaureate Services for the Cathedral is a time when they celebrate academics and scholarships as well as the spiritual maturity and aptitude of these "graduate ambassadors." Services last year were for 13 of their youth. This year they will honor 15 young men and women who have struggled and often endured times of tribulations and peer pressure, but have kept their eyes on worthy ambitions. The 2007 senior class of Cathedral of Faith consists of Chelse Andrews, Sabrina Bexley, Brittany Bexley, Briana Campbell, Kajeannae Frazier, Derricka Hicks, Edward McBride, Jaclyn Robinson, Herbert Stubbins, Jr., Raymond Thompson, Ashley Tookes and Demetria Wright. There are 3 seniors from the community that will also be honored: Ronald D. Williams, Jr., Hosea L. Daniels, m, and Jermain Martin. This year's Baccalaureate Services will occur on Sunday, May 20th at 6:30 PM at the Cathedral of Faith Church, which is located at 6304 North 30th Street, Tampa. Dr. Maxine J. Waddell of Atlanta, Georgia will deliver the Baccalaureate sermon.

Zion M. B. Church. Mother Bolden's love for children encouraged her to organize the New Mt. Zion Youth Choir in 1954. She had organized the Willing Workers (Youth Organization), whose sole purpose was to meet monthly and raised monies for the church. Many missions she served on were local, congressional, dis trict and state. The Minister's Wives Ministry was among her legacy. She was the Directress of Congress Number 4, the Mount Pilgrim District Association, and the Assistant Directress on the State Level. She will surely be missed. Dr. J. S. Hardie, Pastor at New !\ft . Zion M. B. Church ushered Mrs. Bolden into the Kingdom of Heaven. Her love for youths was shown on the obituary, as those who were directed by Mrs. Bolden in the early years.

Christine Oner Simmons' passion and purpose was that of service to humanity. She honored and cherished the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and established the first Dr. King parade and activities with her Boy Scout Troop which grew in size and community involvement for 26 years. Later, this school crossing guard would successfully have a street named in Dr. King's honor, as well as make a bid for City Commission, although unsuccessfully. What courage and motivation! Organizing the Dr. King parade and activities with her troop became her oxygen, which was later cut off. Homegoing celebration will be Saturday, May 19, 2007, 11:00 a. m., New Jerusalem MB Church.

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 qu i ck 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 tliem 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 lhen 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 SISTER ROSS Spiritual Reader Overcome Evi l And Bad Luck, Cast Love Spe l l s Good Luck, Health And Happiness Is A Phone Call Away (813) 850-3517 Hello!
