--FEATURES "T1 ::c 0 )> Dumpsite Proposal Scrapped For Novv DAVID McCARY' Director of Solid Waste for the City of Tampa BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer Last week, David McCary, Director of Solid Waste for the City of Tampa appeared before City Council to present a proposal about illegal dumping: The drop off center would have been located on a city-owned parcel of land near N 22nd Street and E. Sligh Avenue. McCary said of the 52 identified illegal dumpsites in the city limits, 36 are located in East Tampa. However, after listening to the concerns of East Tampa residents, McCary has dis carded the p1an and is seeking alternatives to combat the problem of illegal dump ing. "I want the community to know that we heard their concerns and that we are passionate about finding a solution. Our intent was to respond to and adqress illegal dumping. We were seek ing ways to make disposing of unwanted items convenient. We'll continue to look for a different site, maybe in a more industrial area that doesn't affect residential communities. We do need multiple solutions to this problem and everyone needs to get involved to help alleviate this problem," McCary said. During a meeting with McCary, Ms. Kay Andrews, publisher of the Florida Sentinel Bulletin said, "We have a person over solid waste that has made a good decision on what the community wants and who is receptive to the community's needs and desires. "He is open to sugges tions, but most importantly, he needs the community' s help to find a solution. That' s imperative." Some of the solutions McCary is considering include: a possible solution hotline; publicizing the dates of the yearly neighborhood pickups conducted by the city; meeting with various areas; and other solutions. There will be a communi ty meeting on June 18th, at 7 p .m., at the Seminole Heights Garden Center, on Central Avenue to discuss illegal dumping and other challenges of the communi ty McCary is also planning a public meeting in the East Tampa area in the near future. $10 Gets your Honor Roll student's photo in the paper on Friday, .June 29, 2007 Deadline: weanesaay, June 20 3 P.M. r---------------------Child's Name Schuul _______________ Parents (;ranparenlc; ________ Honur Roll, Hil(h Honor Roll, Principal's Honor Roll, Citizenship Hohhies ----------------Church----------Phone# ___ ______________ (Not For Puhlicatlon) Residents Are Happy Dumpsite Is Dumped When the issue of locating a drop off center (dump) along 22nd Street, north of Sligh Avenue was proposed, the surrounding communities of South Seminole Heights, Woodland Terrace and River Grove took a stand.

Ben-Yahweh barely made the national news scene when he died a few weeks ago. This has to be most disturbing because he challenged the Black Christian community, and the nation as a whole with his "Best Kept Secret" projections. Over the years, and more pointedly having served a prison term, the movement,s followers just seemed to have disappeared. But Yahweh-Ben-Yahweh deserves more. Here, this man took the Holy Bible, yes, the King James Version, and broke down the Scriptures identifyjng God (Yahweh) as Black, as Black, King David as Black, Solomon as Black, Jeremiah and all the prophets as Black people, and the Bible as containing the true history of Black peo ple. Do we just walk away from this as if this man never walked this Earth? Where are the followers of Ben Yahweh? Is this the big void we have suffered in Black leadership since the end of the Civil War? The end of slavery? My Point Of View Ill MS. IRIS HOLTON Not Without A Fight Recently, the Tampa community learned that the Upward Bound Program, housed at the University of South Florida is to be no more. The federal government announced on May 31st, that the program wouldn't be funded. Upward Bound has served as a guiding light for under privileged and underserved youth in this community for nearly 40 years. As a direct result of this program, many who may never have attend ed college were able to do so. So the question remains, How can we let this program die without a fight?" Historically, this program has probably helped more youngsters in this communi ty than anyone will ever realize--until it's gone! great, even though some snay be selfish. There is still another seg-ment of parents who think their children arc supposed to take care of them. They don't care what their children become, as long as they can provide a source of income for them so they don't have to work. I want to see all parents encourage their children to reach loftier goals than they have. As an adult, you've made your choices, and now it Is time for your children to Without e\'er knowing it, chances are you walk among the alumni of that program everyday. They are many among the workplace -they are attorneys, commu nity activists, teachers, busi ness owners, entrepreneurs, etc. If ever there was a time for the community to come together to save this program, now is that time. We can't sit idly by because it doesn't concern us, because we don't have any children enrolled in the program, because ... We currently live in an aca demic world, strongly routed in technology. And whether we like it or not, this is the world that our children and grandchildren will have to live in This program promotes make their choices as far as their future is concerned. It is our job to guide them. Most children want to become professionals or emulate what they've seen around them. Some like the job police officers do and want to do that. Others may be excited when they see firefighters on the back of a truck. Whatever our children aspire to be, we need to encourage them, and then get out of the way. We don't need to depend on them to academic excellence, hands on computer interaction, and it exposes youngsters to various events of cultural and historical significance. Students who attended sev eral years ago have gone on to become parents. Many of their children have been or are currently enrolled in the program. The students are also exposed to students from high schools in surrounding counties. That's right! Children from other counties come to Hillsborough County just to participate in this program. That speaks volumes. A favorite adage of our elders is that we should pick the battl.es we choose to fight. I think saving Upward Bound is a battle worth fighting. provide for us when we can provide for ourselves . Always expect more for your children than you have. Dream of seeing them being able to take care of them-selves and live comfortable lives. Always want them to have a family of their own and provide them with the things you "COuldn't. Allow your children to be exposed to the positive things in life that will encourage them to grow and develop into successful peo-pie and make a difference.

The Sole-Man Speaks Once Upon A Tampa: A Horror Storyl h e rest is history. In fo llowing decades, experts came from around the world to inspect the streets of Tampa. One by one, they wagged their heads, in both shock and resolve ... convinced by what their eyes had seen, that what took place in this once beautiful community would never happen in the cities and towns where they came from! But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me begin by saying, "Once upon a time, there was a city in the South known world wide as the proud metropolis of Tan1pa. Historians said Tampa was an Indian name that meant "Smelly Waters," "Here it is," or something like that. But most people who live in Tampa simply and lovingly called it "HOME!" But that was before the nightmare began! No one is quite sure when H began. Some say it started when Black homeowners began moving in, and buying up what once were Jewish and Italian ancestral homes ... cottages with pictureperfect lawns that once were the sites of former cigar workers, stor e owners and other small business owners, one or two generations away from the so-called "Old Country. Certain people say that's when the neighborhoods in Tampa began to change. Then there are others who say differently. They say the beginning of the end of neighborhoods in Tampa was the silent onslaught of small business es moving into what used to be the fringes of residential areas. Gas stations and Quick-Pic's sprang up like toadstools. Fast food franchises planed themselves on almost every corner. Small businesses of every kind rolled in. like pioneers and sod-busters during the Pioneer West! And that's what caused the catastrophe! But others say no! That didn't do it. They 'who say they have proof, point to an epidemic that began as a cold ... a sneeze that went unheard until the snuffles had turned into pneumonia! It began whenchiJdren and &randchDdren of people who once owned homes here in Tampa decided they did not want to maintain their parents' lega cy So, they sold their people's property . cheap and quick! At first, it was simply business as usual. For surely, legitimate heirs of property had every right in the world to relinquish unwanted property .. especially for sorely needed cash. So, fami ly heirlooms were sold. But along with the sale of property went the sale of tradi tional wholesale! In communities of singleunit homes, condominiums were constructed. At first, two or three sprouted harmlessly. Each may have been no more than two-stories high. Even though they looked like fancy boxes, yet most of these so-called "con dos" posed no major threat to the quality of life for residents who had lived in communities all o f th ei r l ives But things were about to change! Once family-owned properties continued to change hands. But slowly and steadily one and two s tory condominiums were replaced with three and four stor y condominiums. Traditionally small streets became clogged as condoowners began parking on either side of the streets. And slowly what had once been leisurely and tree-shaded became congested and forbidding The best lawyers money could buy guaranteed condobuilders they would be harassed by single-unit homeowners. Property taxes rose like crab-grass and property insurance became impossible for all but the most affluent to pay. And one-by-one, what had once been beautiful and spacious neighborhoods became "Bronx-Tampa! All the things fbat made Tampa what it had always been began to disappear until Traditional Tampa was no more. And then, when all was lost, the realtors and builders moved to another town to begin the process of destruction all over again! And that is the end of this bedtime story. Sleep well, Tampa! COLUMNS Another evv. By RANDOLPH KINSEY I How Serious Of A Threat Is Terrorism? 1 word today is ter : ro rism. Not too long ago, the word was seldom mentioned Today it has become an every day word Terrorism didn't mean any thing to most American citizens. Wars and bombings were things that took place in other countries, not in the United States. September nth in New York woke a lot of people up, and introduced the fear of terror ism to many Americans We were introduced to the pat downs, the scans, the security checks and a number of other security precautions. The question emerging from this thinking is: How serious is the threat of terrorism? Most Americans don't know Most Americans don't care. Most Americans believe that our government will defuse any terrorist actions and we don't have anything to wo. rry about. As serious as the 'government tries to make citizens concerned about terrorism, most of us aren't. You can count on two hands the Americans citizens in the Untied States who go to bed at night worrying about being terrorized by terrorists during the night. in Iraq, terrorism and terrorists would not occupy the headlines like those words do today. I would like to say to Americans that terrorisms and terrorist are for real. Take it seriously. In all truth, I can't honestly do that. The reason is because I am not sure how real the threat of terrorism is. I guess this country bas been safe for so long, until I can't see any real damage being done to America. I, along with others, feel that 9-11 was just one of those unfortunate horrors that will never happen again. I hope that I am right. How serious is As time passed and we got further and further away from 9 -11, our fears eased and we began to feel safe and we lost our fear of terrorism. The Iraq war and the uncovering of more and more terrorist plots against this country has start ed us to thinking. I would venture to say that the Iraq War is important to most Americans because so many soldiers are being maimed and killed, and because it is so expensive to continue. the threat of a terrorist act in If the war was not going on this country? It is much more serious than most Americans think it is. Should there be another 9-11, most Americans will be as shocked as they were the first time. LETTER TO THE EDITOR ======== Columnist's Fonner Student Responds 0 ::a c ,. 0 m z z m r;-m c r r-m -4 z ., c On Friday May 25, 2007, the Florida Sentinel Bulletin published a n article by Mr. m Rudolph Harris based on inaccurate information and faulty logic. The article ii implied that African American Attorneys have failed to step forward and represent % victims of pollee brutality since 1967 and somehow the reappointment of aaAfrican m American to the position of assistant to the mayor would solve this problem. Since C Mr. Harris was my history teacher at Jefferson Hl&h School and taUJht me to think for myself, he will appreciate the different perspective I have on this issue. m Hillsborough County is blessed with an extremely strong and diverse body of African American attorneys, as evidenced by the advertisements in the Florida -t Sentinel and those listed on the Georse Edgecomb Bar Association ("GEBA ") mem-bership website at CWWW.GEBAONUNE.COMl. 0 GEBA, which Ia a predominantly African American voluntary bar association pro-C vides support to the NAACP, numerous community boards and oraanizatlons, maintains the Sligh Middle School Mentor Program, has awarded in excess of ,. $too,ooo dollars in scholarship money to under privileged Hillsborough County students, mentors and support African-American law students at Stetson College of "n Law, all while providlna exceptional legal services to the public pro bono and c Additionally, attorneys in general donate and contributed more money, time, and professional resources to the public than most other professions combined. This does not include all the free legal advice dolled out to friends and family at church and famUy gatherings. Lawyers do not clients, clients choose lawyers. For African American lawyers to effectively cha11enge the institutions that hinder opportunity or impinge on individual Ubertia and freedoms, such as police brutality, the community must patronize these businessea when they have payina work -not just show up when all else has failed and now they are looking for a free miracle. As in the Jennifer Porter fall out, after the plaintiff was represented by none African American attorneys in the civil causes of action and the money split, it was implied there were no African American attorneys wlDlna to assist her in the sentencing portion of the case. While African American attorneys are thrlvlna, ultimately their success and viability hinges on support from the community. A aood article for Mr. Harris to write would be, "How Can the Community Increase Its Support of African American Lawyers." ATI'ORNEY CUNTON PARIS

LOCAL Water Bills May Double Over 5-Year Period Residents receiving water from the City of Tampa currently pay $11.55 a month for about 7,500 gallons of water. In fact, there hasn't been an increase in over a decade, making those rates the lowest in the bay area. However, Mayor Pam Iorio will appear before mem bers of City Council to request a rate increase. If granted, the cost of water for residents of the City of Tampa will double over the next five years. Mayor Iorio said three issues have made it necessary to request the rate increase. "The water department is an independent unit of the city. But there are issues that have been put off for a long time that we cannot continue to sweep under the rug. There was no increase during the past administration." She further stated that even with the proposed increase over the next five years, Tampa's rate would still be the lowest in the region. "There are so many things that are going on, we need to have a 5-year plan so that our customers will know what to expect. The increases will be incremental." Among the critical issues Mayor Iorio outlined was the need to replace out-dated and leaking pipes. She also stated that the city is reaching the end of negotiations with Swift Mud and the cost of MAYOR PAM IORIO putting more water over the dam has increased. She also she wants to address the issue of using Referral Services/Get Treated /.; { :Auto Mqtor:,(ycles ;.(",;. r ., Toll FREE 1-866-352-4200 Mix Marketin reclaimed water to replace using potable water by both businesses and residents. "Since the program started only 2,500 customers have signed up, but there are many more who could use that water. There are currently 50 million gallons of reclaimed water a day that could be used." Mayor Iorio stated the rates are so low because most of the city's water comes from the Hillsborough River. If the request is approved by City Council, it will go into effect on October 1st.

USF HIV Coalition Seeks Community Involvement Members of the University of South Florida, Connect to Protect Tampa Bay Coalition are seeking community involvement to help strengthen and support the work that organizations and groups are already doing to reduce the rate of HIV infection in our communities. Connect to Protect(r) (C2P) is an innovative and exciting approach to battling the growing rates of HIV among our nation's youth. The program is located at the University of South in the Department of Pediatrics. It links researchers with community agencies and other community groups. According to the Florida Departnient of Health, Pinellas and Hillsborough County are among the seven Florida counties that have reported the most cases of HIV and AIDS diagnosis among their adolescent populations. 75% of all 13-19 year old Floridians diagnosed as HIV positive between 1998 and 2000 were women. 58% of all 20-24 year old Floridians diagnosed as HIV positive between, 1998 and 2000 were women. While only 13% of Florida's population is Black, 79% of all 13-24 year old adolescent women and 54% of all 13-24 year old adolescent men in Florida whom were diagnosed with HIV / AIDS between 1998 and 2000 were Black. Connect to Protect(r) Tampa Bay is currently implementing the CDC's (Center for Disease & Control) Community PROMISE program. The project has been named L.I.P.S.S.

Sometimes I t.hink no matter how much money we offer in a they still won't speak up." Ms. Mills said the reward is now $10,000 for anyone with information that will lead to the arrest of those responsible for her grandson's death. "Until that time, I plan to stay active through rallies and other events to keep attention alive. I also plan to meet mothers in St. Petersburg who have children that were murdered and the person who did it was never caught." Ms. Mills said she can now feel their pain and understands better what they go through on a day-to-day basis. "You just hope the phone rings and it's a call telling you someone has stepped for ward." Detective Sonja Wise, lead detective o the case, said they've gotten more leads, but can't discuss any particulars about the case Ms. Mills said she stays in constant contact with tives daily to see if anything new is going on. "I also want to make another appeal to the idea of not snitching. No one needs to have a murderer walking with them, or living with them.

The initial phase of renovations at the Abe Brown Ministries' Counseling and Service Center building, located at 2921 N. 29th Street, were recently com pleted. The building was constructed in 1926, and had suffered from frequent power surges and eroded phone wires the past few years. The entire building has been repainted, rewired, refurnished and bas newly-installed wjndows. On Saturday, June 2nd, the building was dedicated to God, and the ministry's founder Rev. Abe Brown was presented the keys to his new office. "I remember asking Rev. Brown seven years ago when I began volunteering at the ministry, 'Where do you want me to sit?' He instructed me to make his office my office," said Robert Blount, now president of Abe Brown Ministries, Inc. "I was never comfortable with that. Since that time we've essentially shared an office that seemed to increasingly become more mine than his." The local non-profit's mis sion is to train offenders and ex-offenders to live productive lives. Both Rev. Brown and Blount believe the rehabilitation of their headquarters will have a positive impact on public safety and quality of life for the commu nity. "Rev. Brown has invested so much into this ministry. It was great to complete this renovation," said Blount. "The renovation will allow us to serve our clients more effectively in a warm, profes -Pictured left To Rlgt-t: Jalrus Redd (Tampa Bay Tech), Jaqulsha Contave (East Bay), Roneshla Sykes (King -With Honors), Jonathan Sanders (Middleton), luis Mosquera (Blake), Darryn Johnson (Wharton) J Frldy June 8th 7:30 p. m.

LOCAL -Victims Of Hurricane Katrina Move Into New Home BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, George and Charlotte Elpheage and their children were evacuating along with everyone else. "The interstate was so backed up, we had to leave through Mississippi," r ecalls George. "'I remember the wind and rain being so bad, I could barely see the road." The Elpheage family wound up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where they drove around for days sleeping at truck stops before spending 10 days in a shelter. George Elpheage managed to contact his brother, Lynaise, who was playing for the Tampa Bay Storm at the time. "We came to Tampa and the secretary of the Tampa Bay Storm found a family here, Nick and Hazel Hall, who gave us a place to stay in Temple Terrace. The had been on the market, but they took it off to give us a place to stay." The Elpheage family lived in the Temple Terrace home until they were able to get on their feet. They had also become members of College Hill Church of God In Christ, Charles Davis, pastor. "'Putor Davis knew about our situation and came across a house on Chelsea," said George. .. We went by and looked inside the house through the windows, and I was happy we were able to get it. A lot of people are thanks for helping us become homeown ers. I really want to express my thanks to College Hill COGIC who embraced us and I give them my loyalty and gratitude. We are now a part of their vision As far as where they were living in New Orleans, George said they were renting a place and when they returned a year after the storm, nothing had changed "The place where we were living lost one C:omplete side. The hole was so big you could drive a truck through it. "We came back because a family member had passed, and when I went back to our community, I saw houses still uprooted, mud inside other homes, homes still with no electricity, and com plete devastation." The couple and their 3 children have no plans of returning to New Orleans to live. "There's nothing there for us," said George. '"There are no jobs, and a Mr. and Mrs. George (Charlotte) Elpheqe and Pastor Charles Davis. lot of people are still dis-from time-to-time.

Sheffield Tries To Clarify Comments On Latinos In GQ ARLINGTON. Texas Detroit Tigers star Gary Sheffield ms1sts he meant "nothing derogatory" toward Latin players when he said Major League Baseball found it easier to "control them" than blacks: Sheffield said he was surprised his comments in the current issue of GQ magazine created such a stir. The slugger said he merely answered a question about why there were so many Latin players, as opposed to blacks. "I said this a long time ago, this is a baseball issue. If they want to change it, they can change it," Sheffield said before Tuesday night's game at Texas. "When you see a black face on TV and they start talking, English comes out. That's what I said. I ain't taking a shot at them or nothing. I'm just telling it like it is." Last season, only 8.4 percent of major league baseball players were Black, the lowest level in at least two decades, according to an annual report by the University of Central Florida's Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports. The report sh0wed that 29.4 percent of players last season were Latino. Sheffield's comments Tuesday were simi.lar to those GARY SHEFFIELD iii the magazine, when he expressed -his long-held belief. "What I called is that you're going to see more Black faces, but there ain't no English going to be coming out. ... (It's about) being able to tell (Latin players) what to do --being able to control them," he told the magazine. "Where I'm from. you can't control us. In expanding on his comment about control, Sheffield said Tuesday, "They have more to lose than we do. You can send them back across the island You can't send us back. We're already here." "So there are a lot of factors involved you look .at. I'm not saying you can tell them what to do and it'll be 'yes sir' and 'no sir.' I'm. just saying from a grand., scheme ofthings." .Jordan Praises Le_Bron .James CHICAGO ---His Aimess is paying tribute to the kid called King James Michael Jordan 'praised 22year-old LeBron James for leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to. victory over the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference finals. The Cavaliers advanced-to the finals for the first tfme in their 37-year history "What just transpired was something I felt was needed for the league, was needed for Cleveland, was. needed for LeBron," Jordan said in: : Monday editions Chicago -Tribune. Jordan: who won six NBA championships his I 3 seasons with the Chicago Bulls, said the next challenge for James is to achieve consistency. "Making 'The Leap' is where LEBRON JAMES you do it every single night," Jordan said. "It's expected of you, and you do it. ... Not one game, not two games. It's consistent. Every defense comes in and they focus on you and you still impact the game . I think he's shown signs of that." James was thrilled to learn of Jordan's approval.

Harris on behalf of African-American Gloria Tucker, of Coral Springs, rep. resenting the estates of her grandmother and mother. Annie Mae Swain, 80, died in 1994, and Dorothy Oliver, 72, died in 2000 of acute cardiopulmonary failure and other cardiovascular prob lems. Both lived in Broward County. The suit asks for more than $1-billion in damages from tobacco companies Philip Morris USA, Lorillard Tobacco, R.J. Reynolds and Liggett Group. The suit says the companies' targeted marketing included billboards in African-American neighborho'ods, sponsorships of sporting events, endorsement deals with African-Parole Board ReJects Request Of Convicted Killer On Wednesday, the Florida Parole Commission rejected the parole request of a man serving a life sentence for a 1983 robbery and murder. Gary Leonard Tillman, 44, admitted to attacking Marjorie Shannon, 22, in August 1983. She had stopped to use a pay phone outside a Thonotosassa convenience store when Tillman grabbed her, dragged her behind .the stored, stabbed her 59 times, then robbed the store. Tillman pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to death, but the Florida Supreme Court overturned the sentence in 1991, ruling the plea agreement left out too many details of the crime to uphold the death penalty. His sentence was commutea to life iri prison. Under 1983 rules, Tillman GARY TILLMAN ... denied parole served 25 years before he was eligible for parole. At the Wednesday Commission Hearing, they determined he would not be released for 92 years. Under Florida law, prisoners sentenced to life in prison no longer are eligible for parole. Congressman Charged With Taking Brlbs WASHINGTON--Nearly two years after federal agents reported finding $90,000 in a freezer in his Washington home, U.S Rep. William Jefferson has been charged with a global campaign to solicit bribes, obstruct justice and engage in racketeering, Justice Department officials said Monday. The veteran Louisiana Democrat faces 16 criminal counts, said Alice Fisher, assistant U.S. attorney general in the criminal division. "This case is about greed, power and arrogance," said Joe Persichini, director of the FBI's Washington field office, led the investiga tion. In addition to the racketeerAmerican celebrities and satu ration ad campaigns in publica tions such as Ebony, Jet and Essence. Cigarette brands were even created specifically for the African-American market, including the "X" cigarette from Philip Morris and the "Uptown" from R.J. Reynolds. Both brands were later with drawn . The Uptown was sold in packs of 10 and had higher tar and nicotine levels. Many Florida lawyers are gearing up to file cases, said Edward Sweda, senior attor ney for the Tobacco Products Liability Project, part of the Public Health Advocacy Institute at Northeastern University in Boston. Sweda safd 6o to 70 lawyers attended a seminar the project sponsored in Miami in February on "'how to try and win tobacco cases." Harris was one of the speakers. REP. WILLIAM JEFFERSON ing and solicitation charges, Jefferson been charged with money laundering, wire fraud, conspiracy and violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. "Congressman Jefferson is innocent. He plans to fight this indictment and clear his name," said Jefferson's attorney, Robert Trout. He said the "creative" indictment does not say Jefferson promised anyone legislative favors. l Jefferson isthe first U.S. official ever charged under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1c)77, which prohibits cor porate bribery. The charges are based on 11 schemes in which Jefferson allegedly solicited bribes for himself and his family from government and business officials in the United States, Nigeria, Botswana, Equatorial Guinea and Sao Tome e Principe, U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg said at an afternoon news conference. Jefferson has denied wrongdoing, and won a ninth congressional term in a December runoff despite the allegations.

""' 0 0 N a$ w z .., >= C:( GOSPEL NOW Soul-Jazz Artist Jonathan Butler Releases Gospel CD C Jonathan Butler has led a life few could a: LL. imagine. Born under the shadow of South African apartheid and raised in poverty, Butler, while still in his teens, became the first non white artist to be played on white mainstream radio and appear on national television. Nelson Mandela credits Butler's music as having inspired him during his long days of imprisonment. With three decades of international acclaim under his belt, Butler is a testament to believing in one's self and refusing to let circumstances de.cide fate. Now with the release of Brand New Day, Butler focuses his talent and voice on the world of gospel music. Jonathan's musical gifts, encouraged by his parents, grew by leaps and bounds. In his early teens, B utler won a local talent contest, afford ing him the opportunity to perform with a tour ing musical company throughout South Africa, playing in ramshackle roadhouses to Black audi ences as well as concert halls reserved solely for whites. JONATHAN BlTfLER Butler's entrance into Gospel music began with a worship tune, his mega-hit with Kirk Whalum, Falling In Love With Jesus." His first all-Gospel project and Maranatha! Music C debut, "The Worship Project," continued where Falling In Love"left off and allowed the artist to c spread his wings on a series of beautifullyZ penned and highly reflective tunes. He was also c:( featured in the critically-acclaimed Gospel Goes Classical project, recorded live with Juanita 5} Bynum, backed by a 75-piece orchestra and a W too-voice choir. The Billboard-charting CD with renowned arranger/conductor, Dr. Henry i: Panion, Ill, at the helm, allowed Butler to revisit "Falling In Love" and to duet with B y num on the worshipful don't Mind Waiting. Now, Butle r will release his second Maranatha! Music project Brand New Day, a collection of uplifting and empowering Gospel songs. Co-produced with Luther "Mano" Hanes (CeCe Winans, Andrae Crouch, Israel Houghton), the CD brings a new sound to Jonathan Butler, yet never veers too far away from the classic styling he's best known for. The title tune, Brand New Day" is an invigorat ing. exciting jewel. w c w ::1: en ::::i m Q. z i= w ...J ...J m ..:.. w z i= z w en c:( c a: 0 ...J LL.

Joyner said she plans to lead by example and hoped to have on hand at least three days supply of water, batter ies, flashlights, coolers, and ;:;: food, should a hurricane hit C this summer. The state fE Legislature passed a bill this c past session, which allows Z exemption from sales tax on < hurricane-related purchases ;:;: for the period of June 1, 2007 C through June 12, 2007.

Hurricane season officially starts June 1, 2007 and goes through November 30, 2007. The state of Florida enjoyed a respite during the 2oo6 hurri cane season, which was very quiet in comparison to the eight hurricanes that hit our state in 2005. "No one should be 'complacent and think we are not going to get hitagain just because our state was spared last year," said Joyner. "I would encourage all dtizens to take advantage of the tax-free holiday, so that they are not only prepared for a natural disaster, but so that they also can save money in the process," said Joyner. Some of the items that are exempt from sales tax are: batteries, (excluding automo bile and boat batteries), cool ers, reusable apd artificial ice, cell phone chargers, tarps, bungee cords, radios, carbon monoxide detectors, portable self-powered lights, batterypowered flashlights and lanterns, gas-powered lanterns, tiki torches, candles, gas and diesel fuel containers, as well as LP gas and kerosene containers, storm shutter devices, and portable genera tors.

Landlords/Property Owners Private Investor Has Immediate Cash For Your Home Or Commercial Building Call Irvin (813) 965-5413 Don't Be Fooled By Others Cash In 3 Days For Your House Phone (813) 727-6728 The Moment You Don't Want It We Dol Any House Any Situation Any Condition Call (813) 965-5413 Irvin WARNING IIIII Since running my "3 Days Cash For Your Home" ad there have been reports of other copy-cat real estate investors trying to manipulate people with empty offers of quick cash and fast closings. There are few legitimate Tampa companies that can honor such offers. Rehabbers Superstore is the real deal. Before you lose any value in your home ask the investor to provide the following: 1) References: Ask to talk with people who have recently sold them their home 2) Proof of Funds: Ask them to prove they have the cash to close quickly. Many investors use a "Quick Cash Fast Closing" tactic to get you to sign on the line, then they run around town trying to find someone to buy their contract. 3) Occupational License: Are they legitimate? Ask for a copy of their occupational license. At the Rehabber's Superstore we have the cash to buy, and we can close all deals in 3 days. More importantly we can provide you with our credentials.
