Years from now, when historians have tried heroically to tie up all the loose ends, someone will bring up the name Yolanda King. He or she will say, "This woman called King, what was her claim to fame?" The answer will come, "She was the daughter of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his wife, Mrs. Coretta Scott King." Then will come the question, "How shall c we place her in history?" And the answer will return, a: "She was a King's daughter. She was royalu.. ty." If you had not heard, Yolanda King-Dr. and Mrs. < Martin Luther King Jr.'s youngest daughter-died last week. With her passing, she joins a growing li s t of chile dren who did live to the fullest extent possible wherein en to fulfill their parents' legacy. John Kennedy, Jr. was one. He died in a still-suspicious plane crash, having not been given the chance that many believed he iZ: craved to pick up the pieces of his late father's shatW tered' legacy, and run for presidency of the United Gj States. Yolanda still wore her mother's hairstyle. c But there was no foul play with the death of Yolanda W King. We are told, she collapsed at her brother Dexter's.doorstep. Her time had simply come. Her mother and father were waiting. CD Yes, it would have been reassuring, had Yolanda left an heir some say. But none of the MLK children thus z far have had children. And it seems, they are content to let the seed of the original dreamer be stillborn, or _, be deferred for another distant member of the King 5 family. Nevertheless, Yolanda is survived by her older m sister, Rev. Bernice King and her brothers, Martin and _j Dexter. And so, it shall be said, Rev. and Mrs. Martin Luther King, Jr. had four children. Last week, one of t=Z them joined their parents. And now there are three who seem to bear the sadness and resilience of their mother and father. We mourn the passing of a < princess. And it will forever be difficult to blot her C youth and beauty from our collective memory. May a: she and her family find peace. Pass it on. 0 _, u.. A Belated Birthday Graatlngl our shame, we forgot it. Nobody is perfect. r.vii'!MriHltoV makes mistakes. Therefore, we apoland hope this belated birthday is received by you and by his memory, with forgiveness and sincerity. Last Saturday, May 19th was Malcolm X's birthday, a.k.a., Malcolm Uttle, a.k.a., El Malik El Shabazz. He would have been 82 last Saturday had he lived. Indeed, the term 'had he lived' seems to sum up the stories of too many of our brightes t Black young men through the years. Martin Luther King, Jr., 'had he lived.' Harry T. Moore, 'had he lived.' Medgar Evers, 'had he lived,' etc., etc., etc.! Truthfully, we at the Sentinel have grown steadily tired of having to refe r to the men, wome n and martyrs who gave their lives for < inches of racial, economic and politica l progress, 'had they live d! w Nevertheless, had he escaped the slings and arrows 0 of America's blood thirsty and racis m traditions, Malcolm X might have become another prominent Black . ::: .;:/ ...

Atty. Cochran went on to say he got to be a millionaire long before th e 0. J. Simpson case, by taking poli ce brutality cases against Black people in uth Central, Los Angeles With such as a backdrop we mu s t raise the question: Why? Out of over 60 practicing Black lawyers in TampaHillsborough County, and the institutional George Edgecomb Bar Association at hand, why does history show only one such police-brutality case taken by a Black lawyer during this dreadfu l historical time. I b elieve it was in 1967 when such occurred in the police killing of the Black youth Martin Chambers. Th e lat e Atty. Francisco Rodriquez was the la\vyer of recor d Dur ing that litigation, sa n ctions were imposed by the court to c hill further litigation Thi s fear keeps Black lawyers from participating to this very day, and it seems that white lawyers only have the freedom to take civil rights cases involving Black clients here in Tampa! The problem could be the lack of a strong civil rights curriculum in these law schools that turn out our Black lawyers. Tampa now has a law school, Stetson University, recently built downtown How many Blacks are e nrolled and are the pro fessor s teaching an adequate Civ11 Right s curriculum? W e need fighting Civ il Rights B lack lawyers to change thi s dreadful circum stance. And until an Assistant to the Mayor of Tampa i s r estored, we will co ntinue to suffer in this critical arena. I My Point Of View I MS. IRIS HOLTON A Little Memorial Day History n ee again we are on the verge of celebrating Memorial Day. It's a n atio nal holiday that pays trib ute t o the men and women who served honorably and died while in the U S Military The fir s t Memorial Day was known as D eco r atio n Da and was crea t d t o honor nion soldie r s who sac rifi ced their lives during th e Civil War The holiday came abo ut as a result of diff ere nt com muniti es pa ing tribute to th e dead fr om their res p ective areas. But each city or town h ad it s own holi day. Professor David Blight, of Yale Unive r si t y History D partment cred it s fr eed s laves with th e fir s t M e m orial Day in 1865 It t ook place at a r acetrack in C harl es t o n outh Caro lina. Blight s aid that during the war, the rac e tra c k was pri so n camp. It also was a massive grave that held the remains of Union so ldiers who died at th e pri so n The f reed s lav es, joined bv th e soldiers, are said to have patriotic so ngs and held a picnic. Thousand reportedly participated. But the official holiday didn't come abo ut un til Ma_ 5, 1866 in Waterloo, New York G neral John Murray and Gen eral John A Logan are said to have l ed the charge for a national holida Two yea r later. General Logan i ued a proclamation declaring that Decoration Day be obser ed nationwide. He was Commander-In-Chief of the Grand Arm y of th e R epublic a t th e tim e The first official, nati o nwide, Decoration Day celebration took place o n Ma 30, 1868. TI1is date wa c h ose n because it was n o t th e anniversary of any battle. Thi s sig naled the s t art of decorating the graves of falle n soldiers Howev e r th e holiday met with opposition Many of the southern s tates refused to rec ognize or ce lebrat e Decoration Day. One exception was the city o f Columbus, Mississippi In 1866, its citizens participated in th e celebratio n and h o nored both the Union and Confederate sold i ers After World War I the celebratio n expanded a nd became a n a ti o n al holiday honorin g a n y soldie r that died in a mili tary action. After World War II the name Memorial Da y became accepted and eventual l y r eplace d the name of Decoratio n Day It was not until 100 yea rs a fter General Logan proclaimed Decoration Day in 1868, that m e mbers of th e U. Congre passed the Uniform ed Holidays Bill that m o ed four traditional holi days Memorial Day h as si n ce bee n ce lebrated on the last Monday of May instead of th e actual date of May 30th. Now, as another war rages on, we should remember th e falle n soldi rs elder of the Black Experience. He might have been similar to what Rev. Joseph Lowry has become, or to what an elderly Andrew Young is becoming and an aging Rev. A1 Sharpton will no doubt, never become. Had he lived, no doubt Malcolm X would have become a living icon. Yet, fate was not so willing and according to rumor, n eithe r was the FBI. Last Saturday, 82 year s ago, somewhere on the Black side of"6maha Nebraska (far from the place where Mutual of Omaha Insurance comes from), a swaddlir\g bahy was born to Rev. Earl Little (a Baptist Minister) and Ms. Louise Norton (a seamstress). The remainder of Malcolm's life is a story told and r told. T h e mos t recent r e t elling of it will be published in early 2009 b y ooll g professor/colunmist Manning Marable, who says h e has gotten the insid scoop on who the real Malcolm X really was. We shall see. In the meantime, belated Happy birthday Brother. You haven' t aged a day in our hearts! Pass it on.

. COLUMNS Sole-Man Speaks Everybody Diesl erhaps, St. Paul said it best. I di e d aily." It would've been interesting to read what St. Paul might have h a d t o say about the passing o f R eve r end Evange]jst Jerry Falwell. St. Paul would proba bl y h a v e said, I hope h e didn' t tak e it p e r so nal! ' Was it Gen. Douglas MacArthur who said, ''Old soldiers n eve r di e; they jus t fade away?" Well, p erha p s the same might b e said about so-called old preachers." Take Billy Graham for example ... n o t dead but fading away. The r e were m a n y b efore Graham. Indee d in these p a rt s, th e r e was a man called Billy Sunday, a fiery clergyman. H e died, though unce r emo ni o u s l y. And who can forget the notoriously famo u s Elmer Gantry? Played by Hollywood actor, Burt Lancaster, during one of his ugliest moments. The real-life evangelist wa s said to first have succumbed to the bottle, before then succumbing to obscurity and finally the cemetery. And then we have a list of clergy -famous on air, like Jerry Falwell -whose wings got too close to the abiding sunshine of media notoriety and who plummeted earthward, consumed by flames of promiscuity, homosexuality and general house wrecking. To all these maladies and mishaps, Falwell proved immune if not oblivious. Indeed, his only sin was his predilection for political conservatism. JERRY LOVED THE STUFF! He couldn't get enough of it! On the air, in print, on the internet, the divine evangeli s t never failed to let it be known that he believed God was a Republican ... or close to it anyway. And that is when he became dangerous ... not only to himself, but to the 813 Constitution of the Unite d States, and the principl es on which it s tood! (Am I still alive'?) Y 'see, it's simpl e. B elieve it or not, th e r e i s a reason why great minds more than four centuries ago agreed that lif e would b e b e tt e r if th e re was a n uncrossable channel b etwee n Church and State! P erhaps, they owned a C l y s tal ball! We'r e not sure. The onl y thing we know i s that in words plain and urgent, creators of what would b eco m e part of our modern D emocracy in s i s ted we t a k e g reat ca r e to m a k e cert ai n "In God We Trus t and "Under God, Indi visib l e" did not become the absolute measures of a ll American governmental deci s i o n s and procedures. Mo s t certainly, Rev. Falwell di sagreed. With hi s fatherl y gaze and lowland Vi rginia drawl Falwell m ethodicall y set about weaving a fabric where Am erica n," Republi ca n ," "Conservati s m ," and "Baptis m were a ll o n e word! And from tha t one comprehe nsive and fretfully whisperable word (The "Religious Right," shhhhhhh!), all things in America and around the world were measured. And what did Falwell think about Black people? H e had many Bla ck friends who were preach e r s of great and high di stinction. Rev. AI Sharpton was not one of the m Docs that answer your ques tion. For you who may not know, Rev. Jerry Falwell died recently. He will be missed, as he has always been missed. However, I am quite certain he, Billy Sunday and Elmer Gantry will be having a great time taking one of the many Bible Remedial Classes made mandatory in the Hereafter!

But get off the main drags. Travel the back stree t s, the s id e streets and the forgotten streets. In many a reas of East Tampa, it resembles a third world country.

Po verty, a lack o f educa tion, despair and hope less n ess a r e a lso common traits of these back street communitie s.

The children are b e tween the ages of 13 and 16, and accord ing to poli ce, at l eas t 3 of them were armed with handguns.

What's eq uall y scary i s this act is indi cative of what we can expect this summer. Every summer, a child is murdered senselessly, and the person on the other end of the gun is usu all y another child. I usually try to be lenient toward parents when their children pull off these kind of stunts. But, there has to be some accountability, and if the children can't be accountable, th e n it has to fall on their par ents \\'h ere were they? I hop e this act isn t an indica tor of pare nt s l os ing control of th e ir childre n or b e ing more co n cerne d about their own been ignored for ye ars. This has created third world conditions.

In 2000, Minister Michelle B. Patty decided that s h e would take her service to the community a step further. She had been deeply involved in the community, first with an organization called Concerned African American Citizens, then on her own as an advocate for poor and suffering people. Now, the "Miche lle B Patty Accident Referral Service" has added more services to help people who never realized they could get the help. "I'm very proud to announce I've added social security attorneys to my service Everyday, I hear of people being denied legitimate claims for services.

Dowridge, Jr. know what he's talking about? Because, he's been there and done that. So, who else could be better qualified to point out to today's young men what lies ahead of them on their path to self-destruction. As a teenager growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, Dowridge was the most unwanted student at his elementary school, and later when he moved to Tampa, and his high schooL "I was attracte d to ever y negative aspect of a young man's life I was attracte d to the gangs, drugs, and the abuse of drugs and a l co h o L B eing incarcerate d was a badge of honor for m e because that's the way the other guys portrayed it." However, Dowridge was to have an awakening, and after finally getting his diploma and a degree in business marketing, he found the one place he could serve the best. "As a motivational speaker, I felt that was the best way to reach these young minds DONALD L. DOWRIDGE, JR. and reveal to them my own experience. That way,. they'd see what I've gone through is no diffe r ent than what they' r e expe ri e ncing now If I could ove rcom e it, they can too In 1992, Dowridge founded DLD Enterprises, a nationally recognized innovative motivational consulting firm specializing in strategic research, planning, and building self-esteem. "That's where it has to start. You have to start feeling better about who you are before the healing can begin "The more I read and hear about what young adults are involved in these days, the more I know what I have to offer can be taken advantage of. I think I can save the lives of a lot of these young adults and prevent them from winding up in prison or worse Dowridge, who has l ectured at churches schools, colleges and universities, stresses the important of knowledge and realizing ones potentiaL With his humorous, entertaining, knowledgeable, compassionate, and dramatic presentations, Dowridge i s set apart from other motivational speake r s "'I think my message is powerful and easy to understand. If you want to change, you can. Just remember, God will fill you with energy, drive and desire. Accept the challenge and step up.

But, she does offer a better understanding of ':VhY her son has anger issues, and the true causes of his emotional outbursts. When Elijah's father when to prison he was only 10 years old. They were very close, and Elijah was his first born. They did everything together. But he got angry when his father wasn't around anymore, and blamed everyone." Ms. Dukes said she couldn't work at that time, because she spent so much time at her so n 's school. "Elijah has always been big for his age, and they intimidated him. He was never a bully, bu.t he was picked on so much, and that only made him angrier. "It was my idea in 1995 to get him involved in base ball. I hoped it would help hiin deal with his anger issues. He started out at Belmont Heights Little League then went to North Seminole, the Yellow Jackets, then back to Belmont Heights. Although he'd get angry over some calls, the problems weren't as bad then." Ms. Dukes said at that time, someone suggested Elijah was on steroids because of his size. That made his anger issues resurface again "When his anger problems resurfaced over the past couple of years, he sought counseling, and his atti tude did change. "People know the right buttons to push to set him off, and that's what she's done. Ms. Dukes said she and NiSbea have spent good times together, but they've also had their problems "Those things are untrue and unfair I have nothing EUJAHDUKES to do with the problems she and Elijah are having. Ms. Dukes said no one has bothered to talk to Elijah and bear his side. "No one has bothered to talk to him and find out what's really bothering him. No one seems concerned about what makes him angry. All they want to do is make him out to be some kind of monster. Dukes is still a member of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and played in a game Thursday. He had been leading the American League in rookie home runs, Phyllis Dukes and Elijah's brother, Tyrone Evans. and is still a top hitter and fielder for the team. Reporter Leon B.

She knows she doesn't possess the tools necessary to write a book, but her life experiences are putting in print. Ms. Lang decided that the best way to express herself was through the one constant in her life: music. Known professionally as Lad y J, Ms. L a n g started singing at age 7 in her native Ft. Pierce, but didn't r:ealize she could sing until age 9 "My mother was a pastor, and I was a member of the youth choir. That's when I r ealized I could actually sing." What Lady J wasn't pre pared for what came two years later. Her mother passed away, and at the age of 9, s he was basically left to ca re for herself. "I started living on my own at the age of 12. That experience taught me a lot and made me a strong woman It also gave me the inspiration for my music and my life." Now a 24-year-old single parent, Lad y J recalls going to high school during the day, and working at night as a waitress to take care of herself and her children. "That's why I named my first born, Precious She is truly a precious bundle of joy." LADYJ Throughout her experiences, Lady J continued to sing and write songs. She also never left the comfort of the church In 2006, things started turning around for Lad y J Her life became more stable, and she started feeling the music even more "I've written between 50 and 100 songs, but I have about 22 that will be looked at to go onto my first album, 'Lady J, The Rebirth. 'B Lad y J said she's been cate gorized a an R&B but s h e says h e r styl e is totally different. Y ou may want to call it R&B, but I have a littl wag ger to it I do know I'm what the industry has been mi ing." Lad y J said she doesn't play any instrument but does want to learn how to play the piano "That's my dream." Lad y J's first show was in Bartow a couple of weeks ago, and she performed Tuesday in Lake Wales. On June 2nd, she'll be appearing in Vero Beach.

The press keeps asking Hank Aaron the sam e old questions about Barry Bonds chase to break his career homerun record. Hammering Hank seems to be getting more and more irritated over the questions and the chase.

Aaron Won't Watch Bonds, Even In Atlanta \ NEW YORK --Even if Barry Bonds. is poised to break the home run record right there in Atlanta, Hank Aaron is not going. Period. "I will never reconsider my decision," Aaron said. Bonds is 10 homers from matching the 755 mark that Aaron set during a 23-year career with the Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves, and the Milwaukee Brewers. Aaron doesn't plan to see the milestone homer in person, wherever it might happen. And that includes Atlanta, if it takes that longBonds and his San Francisco Giants don't play there until mid-August. "No, I won't b e there," h e said. Asked why, Aaron said: I traveled for 23 year s and I just get tired of traveling. I'm not going to fl y to go see somebody hit a home run, no matter whether it is Barry or Babe Ruth or Lou Gehrig or whoever it may be. I'm not going any place. I wish him all the luck in the world. Aaron said he had no wisdom for Bonds as the Giants slugger pursued the mark. I don't have any advice whatsoe'ver, n o a 'dvice to anybody," Aaron said. Bonds Says Media Creating Reasons Fot Hi s HU Funk SAN FRANCISCO Barry Bonds' legs arc tired from drawing so many walks, and the strike zone sure seems big these days. BARRY BONDS And HANK AARON Still, the San Francisco slugger seems unfazed by his recent home run drought. He's had his .share of dry spells before. He insists his right knee is just fine, despite all the chatter about what might be wrong with him now -stuff h e says i s b eing "created" by the media to explain hi s funk. "My legs are fine. I'm healthy," Bonds said b e for e Tuesday night's game against the Hou ston Astr os I'm just exhausted. I'm not playing for my statistics. I'm past that stage of my career. I want to win a championship. That's why I don't talk about m e anymore." Bonds has played in 12 games since his last home run -his longest homerless stretch since the first 13 games of 2006. When h e hit No 745 of his career and the 11th this year on May 8 against the Mets Tom Glavine, Bonds seemed a sure b e t for the All-Star game in San Francisco's waterfront ballpark on July 10. "I think h e still i ," owner Peter Magowan said. Look at his statistics and h e deserve s to be there." Bengals Waive Nicholson COVINGTON ; Ky.--The Cincinnati Bengals waived linebacker A.J. Nicholson on Monday, h .e-.-leaded not gu to ge accusi'n:g him., 6 f hitting his girlfriend. Nicholson was a fifthround draft pick from Florida State in 2006 but played in only two games because of a hamstring injury. Nicholson was charged with misdemeanor assault on Friday afterltis girlfriend, Victoria Johnson, told police that Nicholson hit her. On Monday, s h e asked a judge in Kenton County District Court to allow her to make a statement recanting the claim, but a judge did not allow it. Outside of court, Johnson said Nicholson never hit h er, and that she got a mark under her eye when she grabbed a cell phone ftom A.J. NICHOLSON Nicholson so hard that s h e struck h e rself with the phone "I was very e motion a l and I. was mad at A.J.," Johnson sai d. "Like a lot of other cou ples, we had been arguing.

Johnson, who played a great game and talked one as. well during an 11-year career, retired Wednesday despite several offers to continue playing. He'll soon be expressing his strong opinions on ESPN. "I wouldn't trade my career for anyone's," Johnson said at a news conference on the University of Southern California campus, where he starred before the New York J ets made him the first over all selection in the 1996 draft. "I've done everything I wanted to do in my career," he said. I jus t couldn't find one thing that could drive me back to playing football. As I learned from Bill Parcells -the circus doe sn't stay in town very long Johnson has agreed to a multiyear contract, and will appear on several ESPN tele cas ts, including pre-game shows on Sunday and Monday nights, and do some r adio work as well.

You have finally become a woman and now you have the re spon sibility of a woman Good luck with all of your endeavors and remember that you have a lov ing family that wants to sec you succeed. Love, Chris Frierson. RELIGIOUS Worship The Sender, Not The Messenger Most of today's church goers are concerned about th e return of C hri st. Often times their concern for His return is so great that they become so heavenly conscious, until they are no earthly good John writes few but powerful words in this week 's les son as recorded in Revelation 22:6-21. The angel who is charged with showing John all that he i s seeing and telling him all that he i s hearing reminds and reassures John of the truthfulne ss and reliability of God's word The angel says to John, "These words are trustworthy and (vs. 6). All th at God p eaks is true. AJI that ha s b ee n s pok e n i true. If th e re is nothing e.lse to be aid about God word, one thing i s for certain, it is reliable In the words of today's cliches, "You can take that to the bank." When God speaks you can be assured that what H e says will come to pas s. John's action now becomes questionable and we today make the mistake that he made thousands of years ago John recognized the blessings from all that he has seen and heard. He knows that he has been blessed. John knows that after all that h e has seen and heard, worship is the honorable thing to do. He knows that he has found favor in the sight of God He knows that everything is a part of God's will and plan. We must learn from John and others that as we realize that we are blessed b God and ha ve found favor in his ::IJ 0 eyes, there is a n eed to praise }( and to worship. We must all s:; worship and praise God for all that h e has done and spo -1\) ken to us. 01 John's fault was he began :;5 to worship the messenger and not the sender. John was paying more homage to the angel than to God (vs. 8). This was an honest mistake. I do not think that John was doing it to worship other gods. He was doing it out of response to wha t God had done. The immediate person or figure there was the angel of God. We must learn from John that regardless of what bless ings we receive in our lives, not to get so caught up that we begin to worship the messenger and not the sender. People will come into your life to be an agent of God to bring revelation. God sends preachers, pastors bishops, evangelists g missionaries, and angels to o bless you and speak words into your hearing Although they are sent from God do not lose focus and begin to z worship them. You can esteem them highly (1 to Thessalonians 5:13), but do not worship them. z ... ,., .. ,,,,, .. ....... ,, .... ........ .............................. ... .

Speak Their Minds On Lyric Censorship Top rappers 50 Cent and T.I. spoke their minds the recent controversy over inappropriate language in hip-hop May 16 during a press conference to announce the 2007 BET Awards nominees As previously reported, a group of urban leaders has urged the music industry to censor the, words "b*tch," "ho" and the "N-word" from future hiphop albums. "'t's not really a tragedy to me that that's happening," 50 Cent said. "' think for a moment a lot of people forgot our country's at war. They'll point to usage of content in music like hiphop and say it maybe influences violence on some levels and not point to actual films that are released and have similar content. I personally believe on every level that it's easier to attack an individual than it is to go after a corporation. They'll go after a specific hip-hop artist as opposed to a Paramount or a Columbia Pictures." A journalist pressed that 50, who repeatedly promoted his upcoming album, "Curtis, during the Q&A, hadn't truly answered the question, adding, "Do you feel compelled at all to get 50 Cent And T. I. with the program and not use certain words?" "Music is a mirror and hiphop is a reflection of the environment we grew up in, the harsh realities," 60 Cent said. "If I ask you to paint a picture of the American flag and not use the color red, you'd have a difficult time. So to capture what we're trying to in this art form, I'm sure some conservative Americans can't actually ID with it because of their lifestyle and the way they've been brought up. They haven't been exposed to these realities. I understand it. I'm actually angry at some points when I'm confused or I don't have information. Again, I understand why I'm constantly being attacke d on some l eve l s. It's difficult to find hip-hop that has had any s uccess that hasn't had content on some l eve l that was a littl e racy."

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's SF Gate Web site, Diddy's lawyer is laughing off the official complaint Gibson reportedly filed with the New York Police Department after the mogul allegedly threatened her with a chair on April 25,during filming for his MTV reality how "Making the Band." "This is just another example of a false accusation b y someone trying to take advantage of Sean's success and celebrity status," Diddy's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman told the New York Daily ews. A poke man for the NYPD confirmed a com plaint had been made on May 11, but no criminal activity had been follnd fol l owin an investigation. A previou l y reported Gibson told polic e that he had gotten into a heated a rgumen t with Diddy and guest judge Michael Bivins DIDDY AND lAURIE ANN GIBSON regarding the lackluster performance of this season's contestants, who are competing to become part of an allmale band. Gibson said she was first restrained by Bivins before Diddy picked up a chair and made a menacing move towaTd her. She said she managed to escape from Bivins' grasp beTore finally exiting the Greenwich Village venue. Sources close to Diddy denied he grabbed the chair, and he insists the argument was part of the theatrics of the TV show and that Gibson overreacted, reported the New York Daily News. S ources also told the paper that Diddy fired her dllring the angry exchange-and at one point yelled for the MT\ camera to be shut off.

LOCAL -_------Foraner Tampa Resident Has Experience Of Lifetime At Kentucky Derby BY TIFF ANY GREENE Everyone is dressed in their "Sunday's Best." Colorful, big-brimmed hats accented with a flower, classy spring dresses and sear-sucker suits with a bowtie to tip it off. Now imagine seeing a sea of more than 150,000 people who fit that mold filling Churchill Downs. May I introduce to you the 2007 version of the Kentucky Derby. I would like to rewind and share a very condensed version of my weekend experience that changed my life It is my first time ever going and probably will be my most memorable. I learned about how "hip" the Derby was through my good friend, Lt. Karl Davis. He told m e of his aunt who put on a big, star-studded weekend. Always up for a new experience, I made it a point to be there this year. Turns out, it's a great decision! Friday, May 4th, I arrive in Louisvill e and the activity slated for the evening is the VIP Reception held at the Muhammad Ali Museum The guest list includes athletes like Michael Jordan and Vince Young, to busi ness moguls/billionaires Bob Johnson and Donald J 'Miracle Sledge On the way to the Derby are from left: Tiffany Greene, Haley HiD (used to live in Tampa) and .Juanita .Jubity (Tiffany's cl.a.asmate from FAMU). Watkins, to actresses Regina King and Lynn Whitfield -just to name a few. I must admit I feel like a fish out of water with all of these celebrities. They all prove to be very cool people, everybody is willing to chitchat and take pictures I quickly realize they are just like you and me. The VIP Reception is a great networkin g opportunity, to be in the room with such influential people, and even more encouraging, they looked like me, quite awesome to be around. Believe me, the inspiration didn't stop there! My friends and I prepare for D erby Day at Churchill Down s. On the way, we are pulled over, not because we violated any traffic laws, rather the Queen of England was to be arriving any minute. Therefore, the streets are closed for Her HighnPss. We finally get to the D owns, and oh remember those hats, dre sses and suits I r efere nced earlier, they are in full force when I arrive at the track. Now, there are a f ew things I had to learn about Derby eti quette, the attire portion rve already covered. The next thing i s you must have the Allan Houston, fonnerly of the York Knicks, .Juanita .Jubity, Tiffany Greene, Michael Jordan and Haley HilL -popular D e rby drink (in your hands at all times if possible), the Mint Julep. Most importantly, you have to bet on the horses. There are 12 races to test your luck, but the one everyone cares about is the main event that is televised and starts at five o'clock. It's advertised as the "G reatest Two Minutes in Sports After the Derby, I get all dolled up for the Grand Gala event It is indescribable. The decorations are elabo rate. The food is delicious and the entertainment is timeless. Peabo Bryson sings smooth melod ies and Charlie Wilson brings everyone to their feet with an electrifying performance It is commonplace to see former NFL star Eddie George or Star Jones getting down on the dance floor. This weeken d changed my life fprever. The positive, prosperous and professional people are inspiring and encouraging. I t showed me a d ifferent type of lifestyle, one that I aspire to live in Thank you Rohena Miller for allow ing me to experience life the way it should be lived.

"The first program was started in 1998. I had attended several ceremonies, but when I came through the cemetery, there were only 2 flags on graves I got with the owner and we began placing flags on the graves. "My concern is that we are remembered We all can't be at Bay or Arlington Cemetery. There are veterans in private cemeteries all over the country and .I just want us to be accounted for.

Since running my "3 Days Cash For Your Home" ad there have been reports of other copy-cat real estate investors try ing to manipulate people with empty offers of quick cash and fast closings There are few legitimate Tampa companies that can honor such offers. Rehabbers Superstore is the real deal. Before you lose any value in your home ask the investor to provide the following : 1) References : Ask to talk with people who have recently sold them their home. 2) Proof of Funds : Ask them to prove they have the cash to close quickly. Many investors use a "Quick Cash Fast Closing tactic to get you to sign on the line then they run around town trying to find someone to buy their contract 3) Occupational License: Are they legitimate? Ask for a copy of the i r occupational license At the Rehabber' s Superstore we have the cash to buy and we can close all deals in 3 days. More i mportantly we can provide you with our credentials.
