W Moreover, the greatest testament we can relegate to > w Sgt. Harrison is, for us all to work to stamp out hatred, 0 bigotry and discrimination. We should address racism and all other acts of intolerance whenever and wherevfn er we encounter them.

Jesse Jackson, Sr., founder and president of Rainbow PUSH Coalition, wants to do something about it by calling for a national day of protest against illegal guns across America on August 28th. At least 20 major cities have planned events which include rallies, candlelight vigils, marches, memorial bell ringing ceremonies, press conferences and "lie-ins" wherein people will lie down in the streets representing the number of people killed in each city by gun violence. We hope Tampajoins the list of participating cities. Judging by what's been going in Ybor City, we'd say there indeed, is a need. Furthermore, this publication and major daily newspapers print far too many news reports of handgun violence for the situation to be ignored.

We must hear Dr. Woo'dson here again for this significant point: "The Negro church, however although not a shadow of what it ought to be, is the great asset of the race. It is a part of the capital that the race must invest in to make its future." Finally says Woodson, "The Negro church has taken the lead in education in the schools of race, it has supplied a forum for the thought of the highly educated Negro, it has originated a large portion of the business conttolled by Negroes, an'd in many cases it has made it possible fo1 Negro professional men to exist." (To be continued.) My Point Of View Ill adults feel they ave a duty and an igation to educate our children. They feel that they children must have the best education p<;>ssible to pre pare them for the world. Some may feel tP,at some children don't want to go to school or don't want to excel. But that's not true. Children throughout the country are very much con cerned about their education. This week, the air has been filled with the anticipation of returning to school. The excitement is infectious! Children all over the country have been impatiently waiting the first day of school since the beginning of the month. Those youngsters who are leaving home for the first time might be a little apprehensive about going to a strange place. Yet, many of them have been By Iris Holton walking around with their little book bags for the past week. The first graders can't wait to get to school to find out who their teachers are and if they will be seated next to their friends. And of course, the six graders are excited because they, are now ventur ing into the wonderful world of middle school. First time high school stu dents can hardly wait for the class bells to ring because they have truly arrived. They are now in HIGH SCHOOL (no longer a baby and finally out of those uniforms, right). Those entering the senior year of high school are now the ones other students' look up to and they are happy about that. Of course, they have an image to portray so everything must be perfect. But, the excitement and anticipation doesn't stop there. Those first time college students probably couldn't sleep because of the anticipa tion of being treated like an adUlt! They are finally on their own and loving every minute of it. And even returning college students me excited about retuming to school in. a famil iar atmosphere, getting their own apartments, or having a car on campus. But for whatever the reason, children are happy to be returning to school. They probably woke before the alarm clock sounded and they are off and running! Now, if we can find a way to harness that excitement and anticipation, then half the bat tle of educating them will be won. Children have a good year in school! a gun-toting society that has earned gun manufacturers billions of dollars annually. Moreover, currently, it is estimated American civilians have more than 200 million firearms in their personal possessions. Each year, more Americans are killed by guns than the total number of soldiers killed in Iraq, nine times over. As a matter of fact, more than uo,ooo people are treated for bullet wounds each year and at least one third of them die from their wounds. No doubt, there should be stiff penalties and fines for possession ofillegal weapons. No one other than the military and law enforcement personnel should have possession of AK47s, Mt6s, machine guns or other assault weapons. Consequently, we urge our readers either to destroy or tum in unregistered handguns or secure legal per-mits. MoreK'a", if you own a lepl weapon, make certain you take a clan Ia gun-safety.

Breast Cancer Avvareness Purple Tea Planned On Saturday afternoon, the Annual Purple Tea, A Breast Cancer Awareness and Education Program will be held. The event will be held at the New First Union Missionary Baptist Church, 3707 E Chelsea, from 2 p.m. until4 p.m. Members of the American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery Plus and the African American Women's Summit are hosting it. Mrs. E vora P imento is the Chairperson of Reach To Recovery Plus. Mrs. Geraldi n e T w ine -and Mrs. Mona Newsome are represen tatives of the African American Women's Summit. The theme for the event this year is '"Saoing Liue Through Knowledge and E arly Detection." Ms. Estrella Clements is the keynote speaker for the event. Those planning to attend the tea are asked to w ear a hint of purple. During the afternoon, those in attendance will receive educational information as well as enjoy entertainment, door prizes, and complimentary food. The purpose of the tea is to pro mote awareness of breast cancer, the importance of early detection, and methods of treatment. Mrs. Kathy Brookins. spokesperson for Reach To Recovery Plus said, "This year about 20,000 African American w o m e n will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Research has also shown that a high fat diet is a risk factor for breast can cer, so diet is very important. Afso, about 400 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year." Mrs. B rookins said many people are unaware that men are capable of contracting breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, the prognosis for men with breast cancer was once thought to be worse than that for women. However, research has shown that the survival rates are equal. In an effort to lower the risk of breast cancer, men are advised to maintain an ideal body weight, restrict alcohol consumption, and maintain a healthy diet. However, as with women, there is no known way to prevent breast cancer in men. Mrs. Brookins said the tea is free and open to the public and that men are encouraged to attend and obtain educational information Anyone interested in attend ing or obtaining more informa tion is asked to call (813) 6850670, extension 114.

SPORTS c! I m U) Garcia Gives Sputtering Bucs Offense Hope For Improvement JACKSONVILLE, --Jeff Garcia spun out of the grasp of the big defensive lineman and scrambled for a 6-yard gain. Five plays later, rolled out of the pocket buy .ing time until he could rmcS lan open receiver in the en_ d zone. At 37, the Tampa Bay quarterback is still capable of beating opponents with his legs, too. And it's that mobility and ability to sometimes !bake something out of nothing that gives the Buccaneers hop.: for improvement on offense-this season. "I think I've always been one to find ways to keep plays alive," Garcia said after com pleting all six of his passes for 43 yards and a touchdown during Saturday night's 31-19 preseason loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. "I don't think I f'Ver neces sarily give up on a play, and I'm not just going to go down when I feel the pressure. It's just one of those things where you don't necessarily make a .JEFF GARCIA living out of it, but you to make plays like that during a game." The Bucs ran 55 plays against the Jaguars, but the two Garcia made during a limited appearance illustrated why coach Jon Gruden is confident the offense will be better after ranking 29th in yards 31st in scoring last season. Luke McCown's ability to make plays on the run also is one of the reason he's risen to No. 2 on the depth chart behind Garcia. l:xPLJCIT 4058 N Aryneni3 Have Teamed Up To OOerYou Hottest LateSt In Tampa c Campbell Listed As Day-To-Day Culpepper Has Good Outing )> c: C> c: CJ) -4 N .JASON CAMPBELL ASHBURN, Va.--Marcus Washington is out at least a week.

Washington has a dislocated right elbow, and Campbell's MRI exam confirmed the initial diagnosis of a bruised left knee. "It's sore," said Campbell, emerging with a slight limp and white bandage around his knee. "The good news is all the ligaments are in place. I'm thankful to God that it's noth. ing more serious than it is SAN FRANCISCO --The Battle nf the Bay had plenty of empty preseason drama, keeping the bipartisan crowd enthralled until a sure touch down pass bounced off Alvis Whitted's hands with 5 sec onds left. The most important devel opments in the 49ers' friendly rivalry game with Oakland were less theatrical. Daunte Culpepper looked ready to run the Raiders, but San Francisco put a good start and a better finish on its win. Culpepper passed for 75 yards and threw touchdown passes tO John Madsen and Zack Crockett before 49ers rookie Thomas Clayton scored on a 1-yard plunge with 4 7 seconds left in San Francisco's 26-21 preseason victory Saturday night. "The struggles that go with preseason, I welcome them all, because it gives us some thing to work on," 49ers coach Mike Nolan said after his two backups quarterbacks each led second-half scoring drives.

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 Funes: Ask them to prove they have the cash to close quickly. Many investors use ct "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.

Ray Lewis had to learn that lesson. "Prison time may not mean the end of his career, however I think he has a great future. The big question is what has he learned from this.

"Keep better company, I've followed the process, and I think his friends convinced him to put up the money. Even his cousin turned on him. They all turned on him because they may be his friends, but they're not going to do time for him." Former Chicago Bear and founder of All Sports, Tyrone Keys: "This will be a great teaching tool for a lot of young people. To what is given, much is required. This is what happens when you get TYRONE involved with nega-KEYS tive people and negative things. "Much has been given to him and he didn't know what to do with it all. The final analysis is his friends betrayed him when it came time to preserve their freedom. Coming from a ship position as a quarterback, he allowed himself to be led. I think he will recover from this and this will be something to use as an example for other young athletes in the NFL." Key said also ; throughout the entire ordeal, no one ever came to his defense and that's very unusual. "He wa s in a position to do s o much for so many, and this is what makes it so tragic."
