This editorial is about what many a Black Floridian has seen through the years, not only as a good friend, but as a welcomed addition on the dinner table. At last, State ers have come to their senses, where this lowly individual is concerned. And we want to take time to talk about it. "Perhaps you missed it, but just recently, the board _of the State of Florida's Wildlife Agency, decided unanimously to stop a practice, which animal rights advocates had long labeled inhumane and immoral. For .the past 16 years, the same wildlife agency had routinely granted permits that allowed local developers to pave over and build over gopher tortoises' burrows, thereby "burying them alive as well as all the other animals that used their burrows as a home." To date, 94,000 gopher tortoises had been killed this way. Without tongue-in-cheek, we at the Sentinel congratulate members of the State's wildlife agency for a change ot'heart.that's been long overdue. As for those of you who wonder why this paper or any other paper that caters to a predominantly Black readership should care about gophers at all, we respectfully reply, "Ask your mama."

I it is true that progress of a society must be t t &Jimeasured not simply by the best of us, but.also t''''';':"''''by the worst of us, then what can be said about certain people and about some of the horrible things they do? Take for instance the following story. Her name shall remain anonymous. But what she has done, though none but she and God were witnesses to her deed -will remain as fresh and as ugly as the first day it was discovered. In an alley, she recounts how her water broke how she staggered over to. the side of the street, among the garbage _cans and trash bags how there, in the midst of rats and filth, she brought forth a blameless litt.e baby, then cut the umbilical cord, perhaps With her teeth, and left her little one in the gu,tter to die. Was she Black ... the woman who did this reprehensible thing against God and humanity? Does it matter? Perhaps it does not matter to say that the woman who had her child, just inches away from a dumpsterwas Black. But she was Black. Not only was she Black, but being so, she was all at once, the sum-total of all that was fought for and died for

A Universal Secret Of Human Naturel minds and in our lives like a mountain higher than Mt. Everest! It is a truth in every facet of our existence. And it has become even more so now, than it has been in the two hundred years. I 1Think about it. America has forgotten how to say, ''I'm sorry," and mean it. Instead what most of us say is, "If I have done anything to make you angry (which I know I have), then I apologize." Either that or, "Mistakes were made ... but not by me!" I wish I had come up with that one. "Mistakes were made, but not by me!" But I can't claim credit. Instead, credit goes to authors Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson, who co-wrote. the book Mistakes Were Made (but riot by me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions and Hurtful Acts! According to Tavris and Aronson, "A!'; f a llibl e human b eings, all of us share the impulse to justify ourselves and to avoid taking responsi bility for any actions that turn out to be harmful, immoral or stupid." I wonder. Would that justify the actions of an Adolf Hitler, a Sadaam Hussein or a George W. Bush? Would such a statement on the universality of self-justifi cation successfully explain the actions of millions of Americans who've ended up in jails and prisons because they had refused to take responsi. bility for their villainous actions or inactions? Indeed, shall the human race become extinct because it will have doggedly refused to accept its own wretched responsibility? And what about us Black folks? What's to be said about our collective unwillingness to let slavery go ... to forgive and forget, yet retain the fact that the destiny of our people is written in the destiny of our nation? For we too need to say, ''I'm sorry," if to no one else but ourselves! As I said at the beginning of our conversation, I have dis covered one of the greatest secrets of human nature! It is calle d The Abilit y To Tak e R e spon s ibility. And unl e ss I miss my guess, it contains enough truth and power to set us all free! Come closer. Let's open it up! What Will Happen When The Projects Are Gone? i ... he Tampa Housing Authority and virtual . ; ly every other agency has made it plain and clear. They won't be creating any more public housing. These agencies are entering what they refer to as the affordable housing market, and that means no more free rent, or renters who loiter around their properties while someone else pays the bills. North Boulevard Homes and Robles Park are the only public housing complexes remaining. Neither will be around much longer. That means the inhabitants of those two complexes will need somewhere to go. With the disappearance of low-income housing, where will they go? Has anyone created low-income housing other than a few slum lords in the county? Something has to be done. Everyone deserves to have a place to live, no matter how they are perceived. Public housing complexes are not bad places, it's some of the people living there that make them that way. That means, attitudes have to change, and reality must set in. It's time everyone. understands they will no longer be given a hand or free ride at the expense of taxpayers or the federal government. No matter what your situation, you must understand that low-income housing has become a historical reference point. Not only will it no longer exist, but its absence will usher in an entirely new housing market that will exclude anyone on a fixed income or who is unemployed. Some communities are afraid to see the public hous-COLUMNS Persuaded By Public Opinion recent poll indicated a whopping 70% f Americans want our troops out of Iraq by April. There are those federal elected officials who want to keep our troops fighting and getting killed in that mixed up country. These elected officials are urging other legislators and I quote, "Not to be persuaded by public opinion" and set a timetable for the withdrawal of our troops. I would repeat that, but you read it right the first time. Can you imagine elected officials telling other elected officials to ignore what citizens are saying or asking them to do? These are the same people who promise to do the will of the people if elected. The same people who claim to be public servants and the voice of the people. These are the people who said, "I will be your voice and represent your interests and concerns." Now we are telling them something and they are ask ing each other not to be persuaded by our opinions. We need to remember every last one of those rascals that said that the next time they run for office. America is a country wherein the majority is supposed to rule. The majority of Americans are tired of so much of their tax dollars being spent on the Iraq war. The majority is tired of American soldiers getting maimed and killed in what many believe is a senseless war. Don't these things matter to our elected officials? I am sure they know by now what the majority opiniOn is. Americans should be outraged and even angry over this blatant disrespect for our opinions and v:ishes. If elected officials won't respect our opinions and do our will, then they don't deserve our vote. I don't care who they are or what color they are. If our elected offi cials won't represent us, then who will? Legislators are showing their true colors on the Iraq war. They are saying we got your vote, and the heck with what you want and think.

In the political game ::I: Don't Get Mad At 'Scooter' of chess, Libby's inside m knowledge made him a valuable piece they couldn't afford < to have sacked. President Bush Fir'\\ commuted Lewis Libby's sentence last week, a large part of the nation was outraged To them, it was another example of the "good ole' boys" network in action. On the surface, that's what it appeared to be. A highranking u. s. official, convicted of lying to a grand jury, essentially being relieved of serving time by his former boss, the President of the United States. Of course, they knew that the average citizen would think the move was motivated by cronyism and they're per fectly comfortable with you believing that. For the administration, that's a highly acceptable alternative to what may have transpired had they not allowed Libby an escape route from prison. You see, the individuals who run this country are masters of gauging fallouts, assessing damages and estimating casualties. They are well aware of any potential outcome long before any determination is made. The decision to exonerate _Libby was done more out of a need for the White House to save face rather than Libby's F.O.P., (Friend Of the President) status. This is a man who worked as Chief of Staff for Vice President Dick Cheney. That position alone allowed 'him access to presidential secrets that would make the mishandling of Iraq appear as a minor faux pas in What Bush did was nothing -< new.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer On July 7, 2003, 5 famil y m embers, mostly teenagers, were involved in an accident that left orie dead and two with permanent injuries. Killed in accident was 11-year-old Angela Saffold, the only daughter of Angela Saffold-McNair. I pretty much died when my daughter died," said Ms. McNair. "It took a year for me to. surrender everything to God and start over." Part of starting over was her marriage to Tony McNair and their birth of their daughter, Predestined Angel McNair, now 2; "I met my husband a year after the accident. We were both attending Christlike Ministries. "It was tough getting over the death of my daughter, but I've always had faith. God had brought me through obstacles before, and I knew He'd bring me through this. I became. a creature of Christ, and I feel blessed to still be here today. Ms. McNair said a couple of days after the a:ccident, LITILE ANGELA SAFFOLD her daughter revealed herself in a dream and she had a baby on her hip. "A week before I gave birth to Predestined, she visited me again in my sleep and had her arm around me as we stood in front of a school. I think it was her way of saying God had sent me another angel." The driver of the car in the accident was Ms. McNair's nephew, LaBrawn. The accident left him paralyzed from the waist down. Ms. McNair said her nephew has always been her baby a Q d has been a special person in her life "He felt more like a son CAQQ/0 THE LAW FIRM OF CAMPBELL, STEWART, TWINE PREDESTINED ANGELA MCNAIR than a nephew, and he was always there for me. He's always been someone you could count on. "Before the accident, he was playing football, but stopped because he wanted to be a computer engineer. Then the accident occurred, and it appears his decision was one sent by God." Ms. McNair said she's been blessed to have family members who have supported her since the accident, and gives all the credit to God for giving her the strength to survive that ordeal, and putting her on the path of a new life.

Woman Fears Something May Have To Close Friend For the past two months, LaRhonda James, 21 has been living with her best friend, Wondra Grooms. The two shared an apartment at Park View Apartments on Florida and 109th Street, and were closer than sisters Grooms fears something may have happened to her friend as she hasn't heard from her in 3 days. "The last time I saw her was at 12:31 a m Saturday morning. She t-old me she was going to visit a friend across Fletcher Avenue. "We were walking to the front of the complex, when she got into a vehicle with a man I'd never seen before. She was trying to get me to come with her, but I didn't feel comfortable with it. She kept asking me to go with. her, and I kept asking where LARHONDA JAMES .... missing since Saturday morning. they were. goi'ng. She was never clear about that." Grooms said she watched her friend get into the vehi cle with the man, and that was the last time she saw her. Grooms said LaRhonda told her she knew the man, and had ask e d him to give her a ride "LaRhonda has a son and I know s h e wouldn't j ust leav e him a lone. I began to realize some thing was wrong when I didn t get any calls from her and we h ave a very close bond No one has heard from her, includin g her family and other close friends. This i s very strange." Grooms described the man her friend got into the car with as a white male, and she described the vehicle as a 4-door blue Nissan Sentra with a spoiler on the trunk. Anyone knowing the whereabouts of LaRhonda James is asked to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office at 24 7-8200 or Ms. Grooms at (813) 446-1111.

RELIGIOUS ... Ct1. urcl1 tttm&Amr School J / i BY REV. RICKY WIGGS .. I See What God Is Saying J Habakkuk was a prophet of f ew words; however his few words were powerful and provide modern day revelation and encouragement to the people of God. The church today needs more people like Habakkuk. Habakkuk was in a place in his ministry where there were some things that he did not understand. If he were in charge and in control he would have done some things different. Since he was not in charge and in control he began to have a dialogue with God about what was going on. The church may be able to grow more and come to a better unde rstanding of God if the people would have more honest talks \"'ith God. God can handle our questions, and lack of tlarity" about what He is doing. Habakkuk makes a power ful statement in his talk with God and waiting for God's response. Observe th e conversation recorded in HalJakkuk 2:1-14. While Habakkuk did not understand why God was doing things the way He doing them, Habakkuk did maintain his faith, hope, and con fidence in God. Habaklmk demonstrated his confidence that God would repl y and answer Him by canying on with his work. He was a prophet and a watchman over the people. While he was waiting on God he kept on working. While you are waiting to hear from God remain focused and committed to the task that you have been assigned. You must remain watchful and vigilant in your ministry while you are wait ing to hear from God. Habakkuk's next statement brings greater revelation. He says he will WATCH to SEE what God is going to SAY (vs. 1.). It would appear that Habakkuk had his senses twisted. If he was waiting to hear God speak, why would he be watching? Habakkuk knew and understood that Gcid was not just an audible God. God does not just speak into your ears. God speaks through His actions. While he was waiting to hear from God, he was well aware that God might speak through His actions. Many people in the church today arc:: praying and listening for an answer with their ears. Th ey think because they never hear any thing they believe God is not listening. Well, God is lis tening and He is answering. 'His answer just is not something that you hear it is something that you see. You have to see what God is sayin g.

He shows you that He loves you. HE shows you that you are blessed. God's reply to Habakkuk required him to write a journal. God said to him, "Write the (vs. 2). What God was going to reveal to Habakkuk required him to write it so that he and others could read it. Oftentimes in your life you might need to write down the things that God is revealing to you. By writing it you can always go back and read it and be constantly reminded of what God said He would do. God assures Habakkuk that it was going to happen. The important statement by God is, For the vision is for an appointed time" (vs. 3). What God reveals and speaks is for an appointed or set time. He might speak it today, but the appointed time may be in the future. The day for your promise to come to pass is for an appointed time according to God's calendar. Until it comes to pass you have to wait. You have the assurance of knov"'ing that it will happen because it cannot lie (vs. 3.). As you live, know that sometimes it is good to have a question and answer session with God. He will re vea l more to you when you talk to Him No matter what happens in life, keep your trust in God. Know that His word not lie! LIFE CHANGING BAPTIST CHURCH Worshipping At THE WESTSIDE S.D.A. CHURCH 1803 E.

HEALTH Actress Victoria Rovvell Encourages African Americans To Be 'Healthy To The Milk is a key component of a person' s daily diet, delivering important vitamins and nutrients, like calcium and vitamin D, needed for bone health. However, there are few varieties of milk available for the estimated 80 percent of African Americans who are lactose intolerant and experience stomach discomfort after con suming dairy-based products. Actress, writer and philanthropist Victoria Rowell has joined Lactaid Milk, the nation's No. 1 lactose-free milk brand, to educate lactose-intolerant African Americans about the importance of calcium and vitamin D and the products available to help manage symptoms eas ily and effectively. "I am lactose intoler-VICTORIA ant and used ROWELL to avoid dairy because I did not want the stomach discomfort that fol lowed," said Rowell. According to the National Institutes of Health, AfricanAmerican women consume only half of the recommended daily .amount of calcium-1,000 mg/day for women between 19 and so years, 1,2oomgjday for women over age so. As a result, these women run a higher risk of nutrient deficiencies that may affect bone health and lead to related conditions later in life. Rowell continued, "Over the years, I have realized that avoiding dairy puts me at greater risk for osteoporosis. Lactaid products help me manage my lactose intolerance without eliminating dairy from my diet, putting my mind at ease about my bone health now and in the future. I also love that I can still enjoy my favorite foods with family and friends." Common Headache Triggers If you experience frequent headaches, it could be the results of one of the following: Caffeinated beverages. Dark chocolate (milk chocolate impacts you lc:ss since it contains less cocoa and hence, less caffeine; white chocolate has no caffeine}. MSG (which can appear on ingredient labels under other names such as hydrolyzed protein, glutamate, glutamic acid, sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate, yeast extract, autolyzed yeast, or seasonings). Processed meats and fish. Cheese and other dairy products. Nuts and nut butters. Alcohol (especially red \vine). Most vinegars. Testing positire for Hepatitis doesn't mean your future has to be negat1ve. Citrus fruits, though even bananas act as triggers for some people. Dried fruits with sulfites. Aspartame, the artificial sweetener in NutraSweet and Equal; children can be especially sensitive to it. Sauerkraut. Pea pods, lentils and other beans. Onions.

ENTERTAINMENT Sean 'Diddy' Combs, Girlfriend Split Up NEW YORK --Just months after his longtime girlfriend gave birth to twin girls, Sean "Diddy" Combs announced Tuesday that the pair have split up. A publicist for the 37-yearold rap mogul confirmed that he and model Kim Porter were no longer together. On Dec. 21, Porter gave birth to daughters D'Lila Star and Jessie James; the couple also have a son together. The move comes a few months after the two publicly proclaimed their love for one another in a cover story for Essence magazine, which detailed their turbulent history: They already had a son, Christian, when Combs began his high-pro file romance with Jennifer Lopez. That romance ended in 2001. In the December article, Porter said Combs simply fell for a "big booty and a smile" and she knew he woulg be back. Though she took .him to court to increase her child support payments in 2002, Combs eventually reunited with.her. But while c -ombs told KIM PORTER And DIDDY Essence he was an "ex-player," he admitted that he wasn't ready to marry Porter and even wondered, "Do you really think that God meant for a man to have just one wife?" Though Combs said "this is the most monogamous I've ever been in my life," rumors persisted about other women -so much so that actress and friend Sienna Miller recently took pains to deny that they were a couple. He has another son, Justin,. with ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton-Brim.

According to the Urban Music Awards web site, Brown was set to be a co-host alongside Spragga Benz.

Witnesses on the flight also complained that she and her entourage were the cause of a nearly hourlong delay in take off. .Judge Orders 4 Trials For Busta Rhymes NEW YORK --Busta Rhymes, accused of attacking two men, driving drunk and driving with a suspended license, has rejected a plea deal and is facing four separate trials. Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Larry Stephen denied a motion by the prosecution Tuesday to consolidate two assault charges against Rhymes. The 35-year-old rapper is accused of beating a fan and also of beating and kicking a former employee last year. "The two assault cases cannot be consolidated," said Rhymes' lawyer, Scott Leemon. "The decision today validated Busta's defenses to the assault cases. We detailed to the court that, we have defense to these cases and the court agreed. Assistant District Attorney Harrison Schweiloch hadn't moved to have the drunken driving and suspended license cases consolidated, so the judge allowed them to remain separate. Rhymes again turned down Schweiloch's offer of a year in jail to cover all the BUSTA RHYMES cases. "It's the same offer" the prosecutor made at Rhymes' last court appearance, Leemon said, "and it's one which Busta adamantly rejects." Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Smith, was arrested in May -the fourth time in less than a year on a drunken driving charge. At that time, he had been scheduled to go to trial on the two assault charges. LA TAM At The CENTRO ASTURIANO RESTAURANT 1913 N.

The record was on a local label, getting some airplay for several years, said Sean Ross, vice president of music and programming at Edison Media Research, which surveys the radio industry. It found its way to mainstream radio after Afroman was signed to Universal Records "The right song finds its way and B ecause I Got High' was proof of that," Ross said. The song was featured in Kevin Smith's movie "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Bach" and on the soundtrack of "Disturbia," starring Shia LaBeouf. It has become "'a popular AFRO MAN cell phone ring tone in recent years.

ENTERTAINMENT Sony Wants To Renegotiate With Michael S o n y is look i n g to update t h e t erms of its m u s ic -pub l ishing joint ve n t ure with Michael Jackson so tha t so ngwriter s m ay be signe d t o sister compan y Sony BMG for the first tim e reports the London Times. A clause in the existing agreement between the two parties prevents Sony from backing a music publisher to rival their Sony/ATV venture, which has the copyrights to all 252 Beatles songs in its catalog. Jackson's approval of either relaxing or voiding the clause would allow Sony BMG (which covers recorded music) to become a part-com petitor. Sony BMG is anxious to enter the music publishing market as a way to offset the dwindling sales of recorded music. It would also allow the record label to sign up songwriters in tandem with acts. In other Jackson news, the King of Pop may have already worn out his welcome at one hotel in St. MICHAEL JACKSON Michaels, MD, where he stayed last week while in town scouting for vacation property.

The show was held in Los Angeles on June 26th. "I went to all of the preparties and after-parties. I met a lot of people and everyone was so very nice. This was the first time I attended the BET Awards Show. "I'm just trying to enjoy my life an be a positive role model for my daughter, niece and nephew. I like to hang around positive people I know many of the entertain-MIKE TYSON ... Former Heavyweight Champion_ BEYONCE RICK FOX ers by attending various other events.

He also plans to be in attendance upcoming events such as the Old School Fest, the American Music Festival in November and the Stellar Awards Show in December.

I talked with a milit ar}' veteran and visited militar}' stores and did a lot of research," said Immanuel. When I finished, I was happy with the fin ished product." The finished project is a single called "Lock It Up," and he is also close to completing the first hip hop national anthetn. "Lock It Up" is a slang-term used by soldiers when they locked their arms in a salute. "I think this is a first for the hip hop industry, and a way to tell the soldiers thank you for fighting for our freedom and sacrificing their lives," said Immanuel. ;;: Immanuel said he now has an entirely new C perspective and level of respect for military veta: erans. He also recalled his grandfathers were LL World War II veterans. "They never talked much about their experi< ences. They always sajd that was something ;;: they preferred to put behind them. c "In creating this song, a new door has opened 00 for me and with all the other things I've done, w :J this will launch me into an entirely new direc-t-tion." ; Immanuel said he wants to clean up the hip w > w c w :I: (J) ::; m :J a. z t= w ..J ..J :J m I ..J w z Leak Repairs No Job Too Small Or Too Large 20 Years Experience 5 Years EstaJ?lished In Seminole H!!ight s Community DARRYL STARKES Roofing Contractor Lic e n se# RC0067277 Licensed-Bond ed -Insured (813) 477-0108 Fax: (813) 236-7325 IMMANUEL YULEE (Silv_a Spoon) hop industry and continue the tradition of ing a meaning behind his music.

Immanuel has been in the entertainment business for 10 years and has worked with the popular actor/artist Tango, who he considers a friend from way back. "In the future, I'd like to create a way for others trying to gain success in this industry. It's tough and you have to want it and have what it takes to not give up_.

Florida Avenue Or Call (813) 447-5793 WARNING!!!!! 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" tacti c 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 buy, and we can close all deals in 3\lays. More importantly, we can provide you with our credentials See our full page ad in the Florida Sentinel to learn more, or visit our website at: www.rehabberssuperstore.com (813) 227-9240 Kenny Rushing Don't Be Fooled By Others Cash In 3 Days For Your House SELL YOUR LO DON'T LET THOSE OTHER GUYS STEAL YOUR HOUSE!
