The contract, between the City of Tampa (COT), the Tampa Sports Authority and the YMCA, was signed by Mayor Pam Iorio, Henry Saavedra of TSA, and Bob Gilbertson, former YMCA Director in 2006. James Ransom, spokesperson for the group, was supported by TOBA Board Member, Jetie B. Wilds, Jr. and CWSKRPP members: Janice Williams, Carolyn Wilson, Willie James, Dwight Bolden, Janice Williams, Mary Alice Dorsett, Dwight Bolden, Fred Hearns, Bennie Johnson, Rufus Lewis, Gwendolyn Tucker, Barr Howard, Eddie Adams, Jr., Arlanders Alford, Attorney Clinton Paris, Dr. Glenn Cherry and Freddie Moore, among others. TSA Board Members JAMES RANSOM Spokesperson in attendance included, Kalyn Brandewie, Frank Dubose, Tony Muniz, Johnny Page and Tampa City Council Chairman, Rev. Thomas Scott. The YMCA was represented by Tom Looby and Henry Saavedra represented the Sports Authority. Mr. Ransom stated the CWSKRPP's intended goals were to: support and encourage the preservation of the history of Rogers Park; establish a framework that encourages the City of Tampa, Tampa Sports Authority, and YMCA to include under privileged children most in need of pos itive experiences that build character through learning how to play golf and; create an open view of the relationship between the City of Tampa, Tampa Sports Authority and the YMCA that affords the Rogers Park group and the general public an opportunity to1 have meaningful input on the YMCA's performance under the amended agreement. The concern is rooted in having been in a struggle to protect Rogers Park 9-years earlier. Ransom said, "The African American communi. ty must not sit by on issues like this that threaten to remove our history. We must not tolerate overt dis respect. We must honor our ancestors." The Tampa Sports Authority, YMCA and CWSKRPP will continue to meet with hopes of agreeing on an amendment. Mayor Pam Iorio is the only one who can authorize language and term changes to the existing contract. The group invites anyone who supports protecting and persevering the history and legacy, public access and use of Rogers Park and Golf Course to its next meeting on Monday, December 8 at 6:30PM at the 34th Street Church of God located at the corner of 34th Street and 21st Avenue. Beloved Folk Artist Passes After Long Illness Taft Richardson, Jr. was a visionary. He saw things a lot of people never saw, and transferred his visions into craft. This past Sunday, Mr. Richardson passed away after a battle with prostate cancer. He was -65. A native of Zephyrhills, Mr. Richardson became a folk artist at a very young age. His sister, Sheila Nixon; said when they were growing up, her brother told her how his craft began. "He was sitting under an orange tree, messing around with some bones, and said he got a vision. Everyone in our family is good with their hands, and so he decided to become an artist." Ms. Nixon said they were amazed when they saw her brother's work. "We were very impressed. We knew he'd be big one day with that craft." "He was vei:y unique, because his work had a spiritual message with it. His spirituality was very important to him, and he always carried his Bible." Ms. Nixon said her brother's main goal was to have a museum. "He wanted to share his art with everyone, especial ly the young people. That was his dream. A lot of times, his vision would look like it was going to become reality, then everything would just stop. It's hard being a folk artist, because most of their work gains fame after their gone "As a family, we want to get a building for his art so everyone can get his message. He was very passionate about his work. Even in Taft Richardson, Jr. displays one of his creations. his illness, he continued to work. He never stopped A longtime vegetarian, Mr. Richardson devoted his life to teaching children to paint, sculpt and grow plants. Ms. Nixon said her brother was also a natural born preacher, and testified every chance he got. "No matter where he was or what he was doing, you'd always see that worn-out Bible." "He felt by using the bones of dead animals for his work, he was resurrecting them." Mr. Richardson leaves behind his wife, Estella Richardson, 10 children, and 35 grandchildren as well as a host of siblings, including his brother, Harold Richardson, who worked closely with him. Morning Glory Funeral Chapel will be assisting the family with arrangements. Reporter Leon B. Crews ccin be reached at (813) 248-0724, or by e-mail at lcrews@tlsentinel. com.

Feature "TT 0 Tasering Victim Hires Prominent Attomey c m 0 m s: txl m :::0 A prominent Tampa attor ney said his office is looking into the facts pertaining to a tasering incident last week. The incident took place during a Code Enforcement meeting Carl Hayes, who is also a practicing Tampa attorney, was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, obstructing or opposing an officer with violence, and trespassing on property other than structure Attorney Barry Cohen said, "We are looking into the facts of this case, but an injustice did occur. In those kinds of meetings, people are on edge because they are discussing some personal things. He (Attorney Hayes) was a gentleman during the entire meeting. He has recently had brain surgery and was not being a threat to anyone. Police must give respect if they want to get respect. The badge is supposed to be a badge of courage not a badge of bul lying, Attorney Cohen said Hayes' Appearance Attorney Hayes had g one to th e me e ting in r e f e rence to more than $1,000 in fines for installing aluminum windows in a portion of his home. The home is located in a historic preservation area and the code requires that the windows be made of wood. Attorney. Hayes said he asked for considerations because his finances had been restricted due to brain surgery. The Code Enforcement Boa rd denied his request. Police Account Of Incident According to Ms. Laura McElroy, spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department, the incident took shortly after 12:30 p.m., on last Wednesday. "Hayes was at the meeting and was allowed to speak. After he spoke, he was told that they would like to hear from his neighbors. At that point he became upset and starting yelling. He was very combat ive. He accused the neighbors of spy ing on him and accused them of being racist." Ms. McElroy said at that point, a supervisor from Code Enforcement asked Officer Don Miller to ATIORNEY CARL HAYES ... Tasered and charged come into the meeting because Hayes was "out of control." She furthered stat ed that the officers wrote in their reports that Hayes was "pacing back and forth and using obscenities At some point after Hayes was told to leave, he alleged ly struck the officer in the face and "put his hands into fis ts in a fighting stance. Officer Miller attempted to use the taser on him but it didn t work and a physical struck the officer." Officer Robert Deperte, a 22-year veteran of the department heard the commo t io n and placed (813) 495-3702 1 than 300 meetings during Hayes under arrest. Attorney Hayes was charged. He was released from the Hillsborough County jail after posting $4,500 bond the last 3 years There have been no complaints generat-ed as a result of his attend-1\) 0 ing those meetings.

Company y time you read this editorial, the dye may have already been cast. However, we would not be doing our job, if we didn't bring to your attention a concern whose impact was certainly as important yesterday, as it will be tomorrow. Thursday, members 'of Tampa City Council were asked to ratify a so-called TECO Franchise Agreement. In so many words, the franchise is an agreement between the City and TECO, which among things grants the local electric company the right to continue to use Tampa's right-of-way to transport TECO energy from one placeto another. The agreement would also give TECO the right, at least fo r another 25 years, to function as Tampa' s major if not sole energy-provider. Though we at the Sentinel a r e grateful fo r TECO's years of service, in light of a new presidential administration whose attitudes toward energy ,and conservation are anything but traditional, we have questions. First of all, would a renewed CityTECO franchise allow for clean and renewable energy to be generated equally and locally by other energy companies? For instance, what if a local energy generation company call it Belmont Heights Electric Company -decided to create and sell cheap solarenergy, might this City-TECO franchise/agreement prevent the success of such a development? Secondly, if Tampa could produce its own local energy sources, wouldn't such an event help more jobs, at a time when local employment is in a tailspin? In other words, should the City enter into another 25-year agreement with TECO, or might 5 years be more advisable? No disrespect, but time is on our side! Odatta And The Bona Man says you can't live forever? Who says you just grab a big piece of immortality, wolf it down sausage, and go on into that dark, goodnight? Perhaps, we could do just that, if Death would leave our running-buddies alone. Both here in Tampa and around the world, tears fell, this week at the passing of two great and awe-inspiring human beings. "Artists" is what they were called. But they were much, much more than that. While Tampa mourns the death of Taft Richardson, Jr., sculptor, volunteer, teacher, guru, community-father, better known as the "Bone Man," who left Uli last Sunday, the world also mourns Odetta Holmes. Better known as "Odetta", singer, guitarist, songwriter, human rights activist, mother figure and muse for none-other than Bob Dylan. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., called her the "Queen of American folk music," who crossed over into history last Tuesday. We are saddened .. because they no longer answer when we call. Taft "Bone-Man" Richardson used animal bones to craft wondrous works of art, which chronicled the Bible itself. For more than 40 years, he shared his homegrown artistic knack of rescuing outcast pieces of cow-bone, cat-bone, bird-bQns;..tQ.inspire children who were themselves outcasts of human bone. He taught ar.t, fashion design, physical fitness, painting, sculpture and getting close to God, before God took him for His own personal sculptor. And what could be said about Odetta Holmes?

The Day The Earth Stood Stllll starred Michael Kenn11e. He played the part of a silver-suited space alien, who with a one eyed, bald-headed robot who had no sense of humor came to earth to give a welcome and a warning, "Klaatu barada nikto! The movie was called "THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL!" Here recent ly, news was out that the pro ducers in Hollywood had done a remake of Rennie's 1951 feature film. This one starred Keannu Reaves, famous for the lead part he played in the film-series Matrix. However, I've got some sad news for Keannu and his Hollywood crew. "When it came to a remake of the 'The Day the Earth Stood Still,' the train had already left. AND HOLLYWOOD WASN'T ON IT! DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN, JANU ARY 20, 2009? WHAT? NOBODY YET, HAS TOLD YOU? Of the six billion people on the planet earth, whoever has a ratlio, Internet computer hook-up or television or who knows somebody who owns either of these electronic won ders will be seated front of the set and lingering on every translated word, sight or sound of what many historians are already calling the largest public turn-out in the history of humanity. More than four million Americans and people from around the world are expected to attend the up$!oming inauguration of both President-elect Barack Obama and VicePresident-elect Joseph Biden. This massive, mindboggling celebration will be staged at the same location of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s historical speech, which by the way, was also part of the backdrop for "The Day the Earth Stood Still." More than 1,300 groups are expected to march in a presi dential inaugural parade that is projected to put the famous Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade and the Rose Bowl Parade to shame. And all of this will be witnessed by peo ple who have paid between $8oo to $2,500 a night for hotel rooms, beds and break fasts or for the rent a l right of someone' s private home whose owner didn' t mind leaving the D C.-Virginia or Eastern Shore Maryland area for a couple of days (for a five figure fee, no doubt) Then will come the inauguration itself, followed by the inaugural balls! In the words of poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, "Who'll be there? How you expect I'm gwine to know? You must think I stood and counted everybody at the do'!" Oprah Winfrey will be there. Spike Lee will be there, too. As a matter of fact, th e atte nd a nc e will no doubt include anybody on the plan et, who-is-who! (And if you are "SOMEBODY," that could mean you!) Rumor has it the world will not stop partying until the last CNN story hits worldwide television, until the last DVD is burned and the last CD and phony t-shirt have been auc tioned off over the Internet. In other words, The Day the Earth Stood Still will begin, on the mon1ing of January 20, 2009, when America's first Black president is successfully sworn into office And where will you be, on that great getting-up morning, when the world from Beijing to Berlin stands in awe and disbelief, and when the President-Elect raises his right hand and says to the world, "Barack Obama nikto?" Perhaps, like me, you'll be in Washington, D.C.! Black American Insight continued from page 4-A tban before. As to his congressional col league, Sen. Salmon Chase, Chase was known to have assisted so many slaves in Ohio courts, until he was called "the attorney general of the fugitive slaves." Chase later became governor of Ohio, and continued his anti slavery activities. Thus, Ohio, as a part of the western frontier territories, played a pivotal role in the abolitionist movement. Harambee. ]J 0 0 m (") m 3: Ill m :::0 Work A Deal With The Seminoles N 0 0 co certainly hope Florida Legislators are happy. For the time being, they have killed the goose that was laying the golden egg. As a result, education and in the State of Florida are suffering. Governor Charlie Crist had worked out a deal with the Seminole Indians of casino fame. The State of Florida had reaped $70 million dollars from Seminole gambling with more to come Then some leg islators for some strange rea son went to court and got the deal overturned. The state has not received another dime from the Seminoles and can't spend the $70 million they have. In fact, the state may have to return the entire amount of money. The Seminoles? They are still running casino gambling and making piles of money. In fact, the Sem inoles are making more money tham ever before. They have added two other types of gambling that have the big bucks rolling in. The Seminoles have the money rolling in and there is nothing the State of Florida can do. On top of that, the state is getting none of the money. Hopefully, getting another deal with the Seminoles will be one of the first things the ture does in next year's session. In the meantime, education in Florida is catching the devil. Less money is being made available. for education. Educational cuts are being made in all aspects of public education. Salaries are ata near frozen situation and the education picture threatens to get worse. It sure seems to me the State of Florida can use obligation free money form the Seminoles. I recently read where it was projected th at the State of Florida's share of the gambling profits from the Seminole Indians could go as high as $500 million dollars a year Gosh, can you imagine what we can do for the State of Florida with. that kind of money coming in every year? Can you im:agine what the state can do for education with this kind of money? What our .legislature needs to do and must do is to quit the politick ing and work out a deal with the Seminole Indian tribe wherein the money will start to roll in again and the state will be able to spend it. If the State of Florida is wait., ing around for somebody to r stop Seminole casino gambling in Florida, then the people who 0 run this state aren't as smart as > they think they are. The gam-CJJ bling is going to continue, and Florida may as well take. ::! advantage of it.

It has long been the desire of African American parents to want more for their children than they have. They want their children to be self-sufficient and successful. They want them to be educated and leave a mark on the world. Regardless of your living conditions, financial status, or social climate, it is your responsibility to make sure your children are prepared to succeed far beyond your expectations. As a parent, if you have trou ble preparing your children for success, get help .There are agencies, organizations, and church groups more than will ing to assist you in preparing your children for a life that will make them succeed. Parents, don't be so consumed with yourself and your life that you neglect your children. They are more important than anything you p1 " to do or want to do. They a t. more important than you. Because they need you and so eagerly want to have knowledge, you absoh,ttely can't deny them that. You have to understand that there is no reason we should continue to breed generations of dependents. Public housing complexes should not be the future of our children. I'm not telling parents to make athletes out of their chil dren and hope they sign a big professional contract. That's }f <:813::> 248-1921 not being realistic, and it s not 0 guaranteed that will happen. You must grant them the > opportunity to learn more and Z do more. You must insist that they not follow our example, :::0 but exceed it. 0 It is our responsibility to make sure our children are ready for the challenges that are Rhe?d. If we don't do our job our c hi l dren will become victims of the c imina} justice system or be influenced by a part of society that draws on violence and intimidation. Whatever it takes, we have to step up and make sure our children are armed and loaded with everything they need to progress. There is no ceiling on how far they can go. They can become whatever they want to, but they need your help. C) m <.n I )>

It's All About Us I am completely selfish. And it is that selfishness that inevitably placed me into 'the position I find myselfin today. When I was on the street robbing banks, all I thought about was myself. From the materialistic items I could purchase, the women I could attract, the bills I could pay and the trips I could take, every-Pra d idJig Law In ; thing centered around my self-gratification. I knew that there was a chance I could get caught. I knew that there were consequences to the life I chose. I never imagined receiving the time I was given. But the time I thought I'd get, in my warped sense of thinking, I believed I could handle.

As far as I was concerned, my own sorrow was all that mattered. It wasn't until I went to visitation in a county jail and actually recognized the pain in my mother's eyes and witnessed the hysteria of my son, did the magnitude of the situation dawn on me. Up until that point, I believed my punishment was mine to bear alone ... I was wrong. The people I loved the most and the ones I never intended to hurt, were suffering along with me. Innocent victims of my self inflicted injury. I understood right then the meaning behind the metaphor, no man is an island." Whether we accept it or not, the choices we make not only determine our own fate, but they, also play a significant role in the future of those directly connected to us. And it's not just the families of criminals who are affected by this selfish deci sion-making. It is the :husband of a gambling addicted wife who loses life savings they spent years building. It is the children of a mother who turns tricks for extra cash as they lay awake in the next room. And it's the grief of a y9ung woman who finds out she has full-blown AIDS because the boyfriend she trusted lived two separate lives. The selfishness of his desire to have his cake and eat it too, cost her the ultimate price In each scenario, the anguish caused could have been avoided had the offending individuals done one thing, placed another person's need before their own. Individually, a "selfless' gesture may be only worthy of praise. But collectively, if incorporated by everyone in a consci<_>us effort, imagine the difference it would make in world in which we live. :send comments to: Clarence Barr, D, 43110-0lS;: F.C.I.

LL Foreclosure Information Congresswoman Castor To Host Foreclosure Assistance Workshop BY ffiiS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Saturday, December 6th, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., U. S. Congresswoman Kathy Castor will host the third Foreclos\lre Assistance Workshop. It will take place at Hillsborough Community College Ybor City Campus Performing Arts Center, building, corner of 14th Street and Palm Avenue. Congresswoman Castor is sponsoring the workshop and will be joined by City Councilman Charlie Miranda, area housing experts, loan counselors and banking representatives. The purpose of the Foreclosure Assistance Workshop is to allow homeowners facing foreclosure to receive help from housing and finance profession als. Congresswoman Castor said Florida has the 3rd highest foreclosure rate in the country, and people are struggling to stay in their homes. More than 4,000 foreclosure cases were filed in Hillsborough County in September and October alone. But help is available. "The foreclosures az:e just not letting. up. We are hearing from families caught in a vicious squeeze CONGRESSWOMAN KATHY CASTOR by someone losing his or her job, falling behind in their payments and just can't get caught up. "In the beginning the people with adjustable mortgages were being affected, but that's not true anymore. And, economists predict that even more foreclosures will take place next year. We will have people to sit down with homeowners one-on-one. It's better to take action now and refinance rather than wait until later." The workshop is open to the general public. Congresswoman Castor urges homeowners having difficulty. to attend the workshop. Some of the organizations participating in the workshop include: Bank of America, Catholic Charities Diocese, of St. THE GOSPEL SILVERLETTES SINGERS \\llll\1 crtti\Ri\IIM lllliR2611ANNIVERSARY AT: FRIENDLY MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH 1901 CENTRAL AVENUE TAMPA, FL 33602 (813) 223-4049 PASTOR JHONNIE MILLER, PASTOR SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7. 2008 4 P.M.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Miracles Outreach Community Development, Inc., established in July 2000, has grown to now include a residential home for girls. Executive Director Michelle Walker said they first opened the facility in August 2000, and that they fulfill a role that few facilities can provide in the area "The home provides safe shelter and a healthy and nurturing family-type environment for 8 girls, ranging in age from 12 to 17 years old All of the girls are in the foster care system. "We provide personal and academic guidance and arrange mentoring and tutoring by trained staff and volunteers." The girls are provided home cooked meals, clothing and personal hygiene and groominf essentials Training is also given in the areas of building self-esteem, realistic goal setting, and c basic, yet essential, life skills ii Transportation to and from doctor and/or u.. court appointments is also provided for the girls. <( Miracles Outreach began 7 years ago sponsoring two major annual community programs C that highlight "Giving Back To The ffi Community." Currently, they are focusing on ;::) the Annual Christmas Angel Tree Project. 1-"This project provides toys, gifts, clothing fi: and gift certificates to children whose families w > w c w % 0 :::; m ;::) D. z tu ..J ..J ;::) m ..J w z i= z w 0 <( c a: 0 ..J u.. MICHELLE WALKER are financially unable to provide things for them during the holiday season," said Ms. Walker. Individual angel-shaped name t;.ags are placed on Christmas trees in various business es where customers can choose an angel to bless at Christmas time, purchase gifts and turn them in on or before the deadline of December 15, 2008. "We request your prayers and support for these youth during the upcoming holiday sea son," said Ms. Walker. The residents at Fresh Start Residential Home will be added to a 2008 Christmas Angel Tree along with the many others that are expecting Christmas miracles. sth Year Organization Making Itself Known In Community BY GWENDOLYN HAYES Sentinel Editor Loving Hearts Outreach Center is into its 5th year. And, according to Ms. Twila Lindsey, Executive Director, the non-profit organization is making a name for itself in the community. The organization is mainly an outreach service for home less veterans, but serves other individuals as well. The organization helps veterans live independently, by providing housing, training in life skills, faith-based counseling, transportation and supportive referrals for drug abuse, social security benefits, alcohol, mental illness, food stamps and legal circumstances. Our goal is to make sure they don't get lost in the system. They already feel as though they've been cast aside They are homeless for a variety of reasons, and the world tends to forget what they've done," Ms. Lindsey explained. In order to accomplish their mission, Loving Hearts has formed a working rela-DAVID JOHNSON President, Loving Hearts Outreach Center tionship with the U. S. Veterans Administration and the Homeless Coalition of Hillsborough County. With a current housing shelter in Carrollwood, Ms. Lindsey would like to obtain a huge facility to house veterans. David Johnson, President of Lovirig Hearts, says, "the facility could support as many as 2,200 residents .. .in need of a second chance." Ms. Lindsey spent 26 years in the nursing field, but left after becoming disappointed in the treatment by various facilities on their clients. "I felt that the people were not get ting their money's worth." Founding Loving Hearts Outreach Center was personal for Lindsey. She has two sons > in the p1ilitary David Johnson is serving in the Air Force. Donnie Johnson works with the Jack Center through his po.sition with the Army. Two other children -Charmaine and Darryl Johnson -are in law enforcement The name Loving Hearts" means those involved love what they are doing; it comes from their hearts, and they enjoy going out to reach oth ers. In the first community out reach on Friday; November 21, 2008 as a non-profit, the organization fed 250 homeless people in a set-up outside Sacred Heart Catholic Church downtown, and at the Salvation Army a few blocks away Ms. Lindsey has participated in the food servings Apostle Cynthia Forde conducted and has seen the joy on the faces of those receiving the meals. Among the other needs of homeless veterans and other individuals is a need for cloth ing. The organization has a 'Dress For Success' mobile unit that goes to the people so they can be fitted for jobs or just have a need for clothing. The group is now preparinf for its toy drive for the Christmas season to assist the homeless veterans and other individuals. For additional information on other services, call (813) 531-3286.

Religious I Have Reason To Praise Him There are many people who consider themselves to be blessed and prosper ous in today's world. Many would look at their accomplishments in edu cation, economics, and employment and believe that that is reason to praise. To some those are great accomplishments and certainly are worthy of reason to praise God. In this week's lesson recorded in Luke 1:46-55 M a ry gives reasons why she praises God. Mary considered her situ ation and concluded that God is worthy to be praised. Mary speaks great 811 E 131 st Ave. Tampa, Florida words of praise and recognition to the God of her salvation for what He has done. This is a mar velous thing because while the pregnancy is wonderful she has to deal with the public scrutiny as a result of it. Remember, Mary is en gaged to be married and it was not a good thing to be pregnant and not mar ried. Because she was pregnant while engaged, the people often whis pered about her, her hus band doubted her and her name is p e rh a ps b e ing drug throu g h the mud Regardless of e v erything else she focused on the blessing that had been be-Website: www.houseofgodtampa.org www.bjlwministries.org 9n-3222 Church (813) 431-6317 Church Administrator Friday, December 5, 2008 7:30 P.M. @ Pilgrims Rest M. B. Church 4022 W. Nassau St. Tampa 33607 Dr. Linda C. Reese, Host Pastor Guest Speaker: Rev. Paul Buster, Pastor Of New Macedonia M. B. Church stowed upon her by God. She glorifies God for the blessing instead of murmuring. She recognizes that she is being used by God and nothing else re ally matters As people live life today it is important that they recognize t he will of God at work in their lives and glorify Him instead of complaining about the public inconveniences. Mary confessed her cur rent state of being and re alizes th a t s h e i s cert a inl y bl esse d S h e con s id e r e d h er humility ob sc u r ity and poverty a nd s aw that in spite of it all that God has selected her with this great honor. Theme: God is worthy to be praised because He looks beyond all of the short comings of those He uses and calls them to do great things. God has called people who are less quali fied, less educated, and vote most likely to fail to do wonderful and magnificent things. Mary says, "He who is mighty has done great things with me" (vs. 49a). What an awesome God we serve, who is so mighty and is able to take people who are so weak to do mighty things. God who is so perfect is able to take imperfect people and use them to do wonderful things. The reason to praise is because we serve a God today who is able to take people from the lowest state of life and cause them to do mighty things. Everyone who teaches on Sunda ys is not the best, but God is just able to make them the best Be cause a person is a pastor does not mean they were the best to choose from; it just means that God IS able to use whomever He desires. 'T1 ::c 0 0 m 0 m 3:;. IJJ m ::c As Mary continues to testify about the goodness of God, she gives in-91 stances how God turned C) situations around. God CD pulled down the mighty and exalted the low (vs. 52). He filled the hungry and made the rich go away empty (vs. 53). He helped his people in re membrance of His mercy (vs. 54). When she thought about all the things that God had done she knew that He was worthy to be praised. She knew that since God was able to turn ., a situation around He was worthy to be praised As you live these days know that God is able to make the first last and the last first. God is mighty enough to turn a situation around. As you notice the things that God is doing m your life, give Him praise.

Respond to the invitation within a few days of receiving it. You should attend the event. Your failure to show up may indicate all kinds of negative messages you didn't intend to send. Get there on time or within the first hour. Be present dur ing any presentations or announcements. Don t bring uninvited guests with you. Ask in advance if it is okay. Dress conservatively with style. Do not wear anything revealing, see-through or too short You want to look festive and professional. Consume alcoholic beverages in moderation; you don't want to create a scene. You want people to see you relaxed, not drunk. Party or not, you are still at work. Don't confront people you 've been itch ing to have it out with The office partY is not the pl ace for a of any kind Circulate among the crowd a nd b e pleasa nt and chee rful.

Early contact with the written word and building a love for reading is a prime factor in academic success. Conversely, the lack of early reading materials can suppress the young mind forcing young students to try to catch up with the rest of their class. In many Tampa Bay -area minority households the selection of children's books is lacking; a result of a falter ing economy and placing area children into an educational system where they are unprepared; having limited resources and little background materials at home.

Health News Embarrassing Female Health Issues PART II What' s causing to e nail fungus? Toe nail fungus is actually a thlet e' s foot (often pick e d up f r om shared showers or borr o w ed shoes) tha t h as s pre a d into y our toen a ils The Fix; The most effec tiv e treatment is a prescrip tion antifungal pill like Lamisil or Sporanox but be warned: These treatments are only 70-80% effective at best, and even when they work it takes nearly a year and a half for the toenail to fully grow out. What causes teeth to look so dingy? Smoking and excessive consumption of dark bever ages (like coffee, tea soda and red wine) are the main causes of stained teeth. The Fix; As with cloth ing stains, the longer dis colorations remain on your teeth, the harder they are to remove so keep up those twice-a-year dental visits. You can lighten your teeth several shades with whiten ing toothpaste that cont a in s carbamide peroxide, but use it only once a day to avoid drying out gum tissue Floss treated with the whitening agent silica has also been proven to polish away stains, which often form between teeth. For more dramatic results, your dentist can bleach your teeth but it is quite costly. Drugstore bleaching kits are much less expensive, but the' y aren't quite as effective -the gel isn't as strong, and since the mouthpieces aren t created specifically for you, the gel can drip out of them and inflame your gums Why causes stretch marks?

BucsWork Rabbit Foot Again The Tampa Bay Buccaneers worked their magic rabbit foot again to run their record to 9-3. The Bucs are 9-3, but they could easily be 6-6 had it not been for their magic rabbit foot. The Bucs offense and their ability in the red zone to score is questionable. Last Sunday, the Bucs beat the New Orleans Saints 23-20 on a last second field goal. The Saints had the ball with time running out. Then the Saints threw the ball away. The Bucs were in position to kick field goal number three for the win. To get to the Super Bowl or to j:ust go deep into the playoffs, the Bucs need more than a magic rabbit foot and a good field goal kicker. Coach Gruden needs a more productive and a more consistent offense if they are to advance in the playoffs. Yes, the Bucs will be a playoff team. It's Plant And Armwood Again For the third year in a Plant and Armwood High Schools will meet in the quarterfinals. Plant has won one of these games and Armwood has won twice. Going into the game, Plant's record is 11-1 and Armwood is 12-0. Plant's lone lost was 9-2 to Armwood in the season opener for both teams. Armwood has a very destructive defense and Plant has a very explosive offense. Last week, Bradenton Southeast shut that offense down. In the first meeting, Armwood shut that offense down. Nobody has shut the Armwood defense down. From all indications, it will be Armwood again. Marbury Versus TheKnicks Stephon Marbury is one of the best point in professional basketball. Last season he was the starter for the New York Knicks. This year, Marbury isn't playing. He has a big problem with the new coach. Marbury has the edge on the Knicks He has a guaranteed $22 million dollar contract. If the Knicks don't play him they got to pay him. If he is let go by the Knicks they have to pay him. The Knicks plan to try and buy him out. If they buy him out, they have to meet his terms. It seems like the Knicks are at a disadvantage in dealing with Marbury. Let us see what happens. Sickles: A National Power Sickles High School traveled to Chicago over the holidays and played in the Trusted Choice of Champions Tournament. The team lost 67-47 in the championship game, but played without 6-10 superstar center John Henson. Imagine what Sickles could do had Henson played. Henson was resting a sprained ankle. Sickles played with the champions and showed that they can play with them. Sickles without a doubt has proven that they are a national power.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer In this time of historic events, Alton Walker, Corey "King Cobra" Felton, and David Green have become the first Afr ican Americans men to own a professional football team. The trio are owners of the Florida Scorpions, a professional team from the American Professional Football League. The men organized the team two years ago when they were in the National Indoor Football League. That league folded in 2006 The Florida Scorpions had been previously owned by former University of Miami football star, Cleveland Gary. Walker said it all began for him when a friend asked him for a favor. "A friend asked me to help him coach and possibly be the general manager for the team. When Gary gave up his interest in the team, I put together a group and purchased the team." Last year, the Florida Scorpions traveled across the country to compete, and currently they are the only team in Florida that's a member of the American Professional Football League. "Right now, we have 30 rostered players, but we only take 25 on the road," said Walker. ''To play on our team, you must be at least 18 have college and/or professional football experience, and be in good shape This is a sec ond chance to a lot of guys looking to play in the NFL. We have some former col lege and professional play ers on our team." Walker said with more than 33,000 college players Armwood And Plant Meet Again Armwood and Plant High Schools, both nationally ranked, will face off for the second time this season next week in the Class 4 A regional football finals. On Friday night, Amiwood ended Tampa Bay V oTech's remarkable season with a 50-20 win, while Plant found the going a lit tle tougher with a close 13-7 win against Bradenton Southeast. When the two teams met during the first week of the season in a nationally televised game, the Armwood Hawks were victorious, 9-2.

The Florida Scorpions play their games at the Manatee Civic Center and practice at the Ellenton Sports Complex.

Sports Durant Senior Excels As Cross Country Runner When it comes to track and field events, African American athletes are usually stereotyped as sprinters. Rarely does an African American athlete compete in the distance events. John Mitchell, Jr. is unique. The Durant High School senior not only is a distance runner, but is among the elite in the state as a cross-country runner. Even more startling is the fact that Mitchell only started competing in 2007 and in his first year, won the state 1,600 meter event. His father, John, Sr., said his son was always fast. "His physical education coach in middle school suggested he try out for track. He participated in the Children's Gasparilla Run as an elementary school student and won. That showed me he had endurance as well as speed." John, Jr. said it was a friend that talked him into joining his high school's track and field team. "That's when I realized I was doing pretty good in JOHN MITCHELL, JR. this sport." At 5'8" tall, John, Sr. said his son had been playing basketball and he actually coached him on his AAU team, and he had been on Durant's basketball team until he decided to concentrate solely on track. John, Jr. said getting over cramping has been the most difficult thing for him to overcome. "Right now, I'm working on my SAT's and looking at what school I'll be attending or which ones are looking at me." "When I ran that first year, I was just hanging out with my friend. I was the number three runner on our team." John, Jr. said he was working with a trainer, but his high school track coach, Coach Gursky, deserves all the credit for instilling in him a good work ethic and making.him work hard at his sport. "Being a distance runner, I have to be careful what I eat all the time. At first it was a big adjustment for me, but now I'm regimented. I've also done some weightlifting. Now, I train more and I'm getting the outcome I've sought." John, Jr. said his ultimate goal is to record good times and get the attention of some big schools. "Two of the schools that have contacted me have Kenyans on their squad, and that will be beneficial to me as far as competing is concerned." During track and field season, John, Jr. will compete in the 800 and 1,600 meter events. The cross country season just concluded. Reporter Leon B.

"'T1 :l] c Giants Put End To Burress' Season, Pollee Impound Pierce's SUV c m 0 m 3:: tD m :l] EAST RUTHERFORD, N J --The fallout from Plaxico Burress' selfinflicted gunshot wound may still cause problems for New York Giants middle linebacker Antonio Pierce and affect the team's bid for a second straight Super Bowl title. Just days after Burress accidentally shot himself in the right thigh at a Manhattan nightclub, the Giants fined and suspended the star receiver on Tuesday for four games -the rest of the regular sea son. The team also placed him on the reserve non-football injury list, which means he won't be back for the playoffs, either. "When you lose a player of Plaxico's ability, it is incumbent that everybody step up and fill the void," coach Tom Coughlin said. "In the last two seasons, this team has done an outstanding job of that. We made it clear to Plax today that we are here to support him in any way possible." The Giants handed down the decision after Dr. Scott Rodeo, a team physician, examined Burress and told them the gunshot wound would sideline the 31-year old player for 4-to-6 weeks. The Giants (11-1) are deep at wide receiver, how ever, with players such as Domenik Hixon and Sinorice Moss who can replace the man who caught the game-winning pass in the 17-14 Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots . It would be much. harder to replace Pierce, the mid dl e linebacker who quarterback s the defense. He still faces a possible suspension.

NFL Suspends Six Players For Violating NFL's Anti-Doping Policy (Top, L-R) D. McAllister, Charles Grant. Will Smith, (Bottom L-R) Keven Williams, Pat Williams and Bryan Pittman. NEW YORK Six players, including the heart of the Minnesota Vikings' stout defensive line, were suspended for four games without pay by the NFL on Tuesday for violating the league's anti-doping policy All six were punished for using a diuretic, which can serve as a masking agent for steroids. The suspended players were running back Deuce McAllister and defensive. linemen Charles Grant and Will Smith of New Orleans; defensive linemen Kevin and Pat Williams of Minnesota; and long snapper Bryan Pittman of Houston.

One of Forte's lawyers, Aarti Tandon, told MTV N ews that contrary to earlier r e ports, her client had not been pardoned but had his s entence commuted, which means he does not have to serve the rest of it.

The seventh-graders at Ron Clark Academy -a private school in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods -are working on a new song detailing what .s..ee:.t-P..appen under Obama's adminis; tration. "I hope he it and he listens we're saying," said 1'2:year old Osei Attil. "Our greatest hope is to be invited to the inauguration. I hope he hears it and appreciates it." The You Tube video of the students'. previous rap, "Vote However U Like, was 'passed around by e-mail, blogs and social networking sites in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 4 election and led to performances on several nat.onal TV shows. "Obama on the left, McCain on the right,"'the students sang as they danced side-to-side in unison. "We can talk politics all night, and you can vote however you like The song, based on rapper T.I.'s "Whatever U Like, even drew the attention of the Atlanta artist, who paid a surprise visit to the school in October. On a recent afternoon, students in a global politics class practiced the hook of their new rap, calling for "a better tomorrow" with free health care for children and an end to the war in Iraq. "We got hope, hope there will be no sorrow," the students rap to a beat they vvrote themselves. "VVe got hope, hope for a change today. Hold your head up high, 'cause Obama's gonna lead the way." To get ideas for the song, students debated about Obama's economic and health care proposals, talking confidently about deregulation of corporations and 90-day moratoriums on foreclosures.
