Features Two Victims. Of House Fire Die BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor An early morning house fire has claimed the lives of two family members who were injured. The third victim remains in serious condition. The fire occurred around 6 :30a.m., Monday at 2905 E. Chipco Street. According to Tampa Fire Department Captain Bill Wade, the fire was caused by a space heater too cJqse to a sofa in the hotne. Efforts to rescue the vic-. . tims were hampered because burglar bars on the residence were not equipped with emergency escape latches. The victims of the fire have been identified as Mrs. Mary Jones Bynes, 73, Mr. Willie Bynes, 68, and their 26-year-old granddaughter, Ms. LaToya Williams. Ms. Williams, who was unconscious when located, was in a back room. She was transported to Tampa General Hospital, where she died Monday night. Both Mr. and Mrs. Bynes were in separate rooms in -MS. LA TOY A WILLIAMS-the front of the house. Mr. Bynes was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he died Wednesday morning. Mrs. Bynes was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where she is listed in serious condition. It appeared that all three of the victims were up and trying to get out, but were unsuccessful, Captain Wade said. :Neighbors Tried To Help Julius Henderson attempted to help rescue his neighbors. "I was asleep when I heard my father and sister screaming to call the fire department,Ms. Mary's house was on fire Mary, Mr. Willie and LaToya were in the house and .couldn't get out because of the burglar bars. I took a brick and broke the window Tampa Police Officer Susan Bowers, Officer Lee McGruder, and Officer Mike CotHilc s were also on the scene try-in g 'to help escape, but were unable to gain entry. Damage. to the one-story concrete block home is estimated in excess of $100,000. A smoke alarm was found in the home, but it was not equipped with a battery. The deaths of Ms. Williams and Mr. Bynes are the 5th and 6th deaths attributed to fires this year, Captain Wade said. Funeral arrangements for Mr. Bynes are pend ing. Funeral services for Ms. Williams are sched uled for Tuesday. Aikens Funeral Home is in charge of handling arrangements. (See funeral page). Michelle B.

After an investigation, Tampa Police have charged a man's roommate with murder. On Tuesday morning, Tampa Police Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call from Billy Locke, 30, who thought his roommate was dead. When officers arrived, they found Rick Ming, 43, stran gled to death, and immediate ly started questioning Locke. Two hours before the fatal 9-1-1 call, police responded to Locke and Ming's apartment on West Cass Street to settle a verbal dispute. Police said one roommate wanted the other to leave. But because both names were on the lease, no one could be forced out. No one was arrested because there was no evidence of any physical injuries. Both men denied any physical altercation had taken place and police left only to return 3 hours later. At press time police had not determined which roommate called in the first disturbance When the second call was made, Locke reportedly told police he and Ming were arguing over cigarettes. He allegedly told police he put Ming in a choke hold and thought he was dead. Police have charged Locke with sec ond-degree murder.

S. . Justice Department intervention into a rash of hate ... crimes that have occurred throughout America since Barack Obama's election. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, hundreds of hate crimes, vandalism and incidents of intimidation have take place since Election Day; including the murder of Marcel Lucero, a man of Ecuadorian descent in New York. Representatives of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the Asian American J:ustice Center (AAJC), the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR), the AntiDefamation League (ADL), the National Urban League (NUL) and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) have agreed to work together to monitor incidents. And to urge Congress to pass the local Law Enforcement Hate Crime Prevention Act. Targeting media outlets has become a priority of the groups in an attempt to encourage the media to stop promoting bias and bigotry and to begin promoting news and programs that .promote tolerance and understanding among communities. In spite of President-Elect Obama's election, Americans must remain aware and vigilant of hateful acts by the small number of racists and prejudiced citizens who would seek to sow hatred, discord, death and destruction within our society. During 2007, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) received reports of 7,624 hate crimes involving 9,006 offenses. Indeed, Florida reported t66 incidents with nearly ten per. cent of the incidents occurring in the Hillsborough County area. But this is a new day. Be aware. Stimulus Packages And Bailouts Meet Trickle-Down rhaps, you've heard the statement, "When =Awn'"""'a catches a cold, Black folks get pneumo" Others may have heard the comment, "If America goes into a recession, that means Black America is already in a depression." Well, both statements are true. In fact, when considering unemployment figures, the. -National .Urban League has historically cited a "hidden index" among Black Americans, which places unemployment for Black people at twice the national rate. concerned not only about the American bUt about the economy among Black Americans, a8 'well. Moreover, given the fact that mol!ft layoffs are based on seniority, that means large numbers of minorities and women will be impacted. Then consider, according to Operation PUSH, "unemployment among workers without a hiP llchool diploma hu already IICNU"eCC to more than to percent." This means the unemployment rate for Blacks without high school diplomas probably stands above 20 percent. Further, many of the support programs for families in need no longer exist, or have undei'BOne debUitating reductions. Thus, many unemployed workers and impoverished fam.ilies are not receiving cash assistance, food stamps or unemployment benefits. To put it bluntly, America's bailout plan has yet to trickle-down to the cash-strapped < and homeless. .. Th.erefore, we urge our Congressional and Legislative w representatives to work together to provide a bailout measure for poor-folks. After all they pay taxes and they need investment, too. No Lighting Up In Th" White House most are con :cerned about the economy. Many of those individuals who planned to retire in the near future have come to realize that they must change their plans. Additionally, many of those who have already retired find themselves combing through the want ads looking for part-time jobs to make ends meet. So, someone please tell me why journalists interviewing President-Elect Barack Obama want to know if he is going to smoke in the White House? It seems that there are just so many other pressing problems that we, as individuals, and as Americans collectively are facing. Ralph Bunche: J I was simply blown away when the NBC journa'list asked the question. I was really impressed with the manner in President-Elect Obama answered. "There are times fallen off the wagon .. I've done a terrific job, under' the -circumstances, of making myself much healtlUer. ... And I think that you \vill not see any violations of these rules in the White House," he said. Which brings to mind; the real question, "Are you going to violate the law and srrloke in a smoke-free environment?" As a nation, we have banks folding right and left, unemployment is higher than it has been in more than a decade, companies that have been part of our fabric for decades, such as Circuit City, are filing for bankruptcy, people are .losing their homes, and until just recent ly, gasoline and milk were in a race to see which one would reach the $5 a gallon mark. Yet, the question of the week that apparently was on the mind of nearly every American was whether or not the President would light a cigarette in the White House Based on the things that have taken place since the building was constructed, smoking should be way down on the list of priorities. Fasten your seatbelts, the madness and knit picking have already begun First Black Nobel Peace Prize Raclplentl Dr: Ralph ohnson Bunche spoke at my college graduation, I remember the awe and pride we all felt to be listening to a Black man who not only was the first Black man to be honored with a Nobel Peace Prize, but was also well-known throughout the world for mediating the Arab-Israeli conflict with a 1949 Armistice Agreement. This past Tuesday (December 9th) was the 37th Anniversary of the death of Ralph Bwiche. This political scien tist and diplomat was instrumental in the preliminary planning for the establishment of the United Nations at the conclusion of World War Both the. United Nations, Palestine and Israel need him, today, not to men tion Iraq. Bunche, a Detroit native, was a gradu'ate of the Univenity of California and Harvard University. Serving as Chairman of Howard University's Department of Political Science (1928-1950), Bunche spent most of his adult life involved in education on many levels. He taught at Harvard University (1950-1952), served as a member of the New York City Board of Education (1958-1964), and was a trustee of Oberlin College, Lincoln University and New Lincoln School. During World War II, Bunche worked fot the U. S. Office of Strategic Services (now the Central Intelligence Agency), as well as the State Department where he became the Associate Chief of the Division of Dependent Area Affairs. After the war, Bunche in the planning fbr the United Nations, served as an advisor to the U. S delegation for the "Charter Conference" of, the. United Natiol$ (1945); assisted in drafting the charter of the United Nations, ,and helped draft and orchestrate the adoption of the United Nation's Declaration of Human Rights, in tion with former First t.dy Eleanor Roosevelt. Indeed, Bunche was, described in United Nations documents as "championing the principle of equal rights for everyone, regardless of race or creed ... believing in the essential goodness ofall people and that no problem in human relations is insoluble; readying the stage for an unprecedented period of transformation in dismantling the old colonial systems in Africa an Asia; and guiding scores of emerging nations through the transition to independence in the post-war era." However, Bunche is probably most noted for his involvement in mediating the Arab-Israeli conflict in the late 1940s. Initially serving as the assistant to the U. N. Special Committee on Palestine .inl947i Banche' traveled to the Middle East to assist Count Folke Bernadotte,. who .had. been appointed by the U.N., to mediate the conflict. Because of Be'rnadotte's tion in 1948, Bu.nche assumed the role as the U. N.'s chief mediator and sue. cessfully negotiated the signing of the 1949 Armistice Agreements: Bunehe was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950, for his work in achieving the agreement.

Mixed-Use, Mixed Emotional The touted rebirth of Tampa's : Central Park Village is once again in the news. Called "Encore," as opposed to being named "Central Park Village Two," "Central Park Estates," or something like that, this once vibrant neigh borhood (or virulent eye-sore, "depending upon your socio political outlook), which for the past year has been looking like the surface of the Moon (Charlie Moon?), finally, perhaps, is about to be given the kiss of life. All it needs is a Prince Charming with $27 million! "TWENTY-SEVEN MIL LION DAHHHHLERS??" That's what I said. Well, I didn't say it. Tampa Housing CEO Jerome Ryans and company said it; so-to-speak, explaining Encore needs possibly $27 million to cover costs for "improvements to streets, sewer systems and other (so-called) infrastruc tures." "IF WE RE-BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME!" Nevertheless, the Housing Authority is excited. Like sugarplums dancing around in its head, it envisions an Encore redevelopment "that would boost Tampa's sagging economy by creating thousands of jobs, both shortterm construction jobs and hundreds of permanent positions." A look inside CEO Ryans' mind no .doubt would yield a scenario that would put Toe Garden of Eden to shame. Children scampering across rolling manicured lawns ... townhouses and apartment buildings rising to meet the Downtown Tampa sky-scrape ... restaurants bursting with the aroma of good. food-and hungry cl :ients ... no Scum-Bucket here I &ly the And then of course, there would be the world-class theme park .that-.ahaildpicked group of. community leaders labored to make real; only to be told, thanks to a court-ordered economic snafu, that it could not be completed because there was no money. "BUT NOW, THINGS WILL BE DIFFERENT. After more than a year's wait for Central Park Village (I-'mean ENCORE) to spring back from the dead, how much different will things be? "We're not hopeful for an earmark," said THA genius Leroy Moore, in words that reminded me of an old Ink Spots song, "I don't want to set the world on Faaaahyerrr!" Said Mr. Moore, "We just want to document and illustrate that there are projects in our state and in our area specifically, that are ready to go." Meanwhile, Bill Nelson's office has gotten wind of the revived momentum. Kathy Castor's office has gotten wind of it, too. Neither repre sentative has made any spe cific statement as to what they intend to do. But perhaps, that, too, will come, in the end. All for the glory of the estimated $425 million, 28-acre Encore pro ject to be able to live, in these economically unstable times! And what does the Bank of America which once upon a time, was bankrolling the Encore project have to say about this new horizon? Well, the Bank did a study ... and paid. for it, too! An d that study told the Bank that at least 955 permanent jobs, which would be in addition to 4,103 construction jobs, would be created, due to Encore, if and when the pro ject began. And once again, Leroy Moore saves the day. Says Mr. Moore, "It gives us an Moore; "If we can get all the infrastructure built, that's o9:! us up, but get qs Jeronae. Ryans, gi\Pe Leroy Moore a raise! I like the way he talks! .. Black continued from pa e 4-A . . agreements in the Congo, Yemen, Kashmir and Cyprus. In 1968, Bunche became Undersecretary-General of the United Nations. Bunche's memory will live on because of a bust located in Bunche Hall at UCLA, a United States stamp issued in 1982, Ralph J. Bunche Library of the U. S. Department of State located in the Harry S. Truman Building, in Washington, D. C. Given the present-day of Palestine-Israel relations, we need a 21st -century Ralph J. Bunche. Let us pray for peace throughout the world. Harambee. ...... Our Work Has Just Begunl ,!') 1\) 0 Q C Obama, an ican American, as just been elected to the most powerful position in the United States. He is now the most powerful man in the free world, if not the entire world. This history making fact may have led many Black people to believe that as a race of people, we have finally gotten there. Dr. Martin -Luther King, Jr. said that we, as a people, will get there. Barack Obama repeated those exact words. We, as a race of people can get there. We, as a race of people might get there. The election of Obama to the presidency is living proof that we, as a people, can get there. But my people, let me rudely awaken you with the truthful declaration that we have not gotten there yet. In fact, our work to get there has really just started and will require us to work harder and longer than we ever have before. Unfortunately, many people regardless of their race, zens, and that we have a seat see the election of Barack at the. table where decisions Obama to the presidency as are being made that affect an indication that we have our lives. already gotten there and that We are happy and even everything in America is now elated that Barack Obama hooky-dory.

Local Young Man Creates Unique Car Detailing Service PATRICK DAVIS For more than a decade, Patrick Davis has worked hard to become a big name in the entertainment industry. He's worked as a writer, producer and artist over the years, and although he did enjoy some success, he grew tired of the ugly side of the industry and decided to look elsewhere for opportunities. Five years ago, Davis got an idea, stuck with it, and now he owns a unique automobile detailing service as well as a residential and commercial pressure washing business. "When I started, I joined with a pressure washing company, Real Pressure Washers, Incorporated, and that turned out to be a great partnership. I have a live commercial with Nissan/Altima on YouTube, and things are starting to happen for me." Davis's company is called Zanquizit Automotive Car And Truck Care, and what makes it unique is there's no water invoived in his car or truck detailing service. "If you want soap and water, we can do that, but I use the Magic Washing Wax that does a much better job." Through it all, Davis said he continues to write music, and still would like to see that become reality. "Music has always been my true p _assion, and I've started working with some local artists and I still spend a lot of time in the studio.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer lt's be e n nine years since the murder of Leroy "Whoppo" Chestnut. The young man was found murder in a burning car after he left the Manilla Lounge. Since then, Chestnut's case has wound up among the other unsolved murders in the area, and although detectives have gotten leads in the case, no arrests have been made. Chestnut's mother, Annie Etti, has been quiet since her son's murder, although she has maintained contact with homicide detec tives over the years. However, over the past two yeas, Ms. Etti's health has declined and she's now on dialysis. ''I'd like to see my son's killer in jail before I leave this world. I get so depressed sometimes and feel there's nothing here for me. I think about my son all the tir:ne, and the pain just won't go away. The only thing that's kept me going is prayer and my faith in God." Ms. Etti said someone out there with a conscious knows who killed her son imd it's not too late for them to come forward for 'her sake and for Christ's sake. Ms. Etti said even more LEROY "WHHPPO" CHESTNUT painful are the stories circulat ing about what happened, but the people telling the stories won't talk to police. "Just from what I've heard, I know someone out there knows something. They can protect their identity, but they need to speak up. No one should have to suffer the pain this family has suffered the past nine years." Ms. Etti said because of her health, she hasn't been as active as before and hasn't been able to get out and attend a lot of the for other unsolved murders. "I will get my children involved JVith those groups, and whatever it takes, I want to keep Whoppo's face out there. I want whoever did this to know we haven't forgotten, and neither have the police."

Soth Street Tampa, FL Speaker: Evangelist Beatrice H. Moreland "Help For Hurting Women's Outreach Ministry" Ozark, Alabama Host Pastor. Evangelist William J. Parker 813 914-7857 Religious --. 'TI :::0 0 > reason to rejoice praise. Mary conceived through the 0 Holy Ghost. Elisabeth was m barren and old. Elisabeth's ifi baby would prepare the way. m Mary's baby was the way. :::0 ...... Elisabeth's son would baptize I Got Reason To Praise, Tool with water. Mary' s baby N would baptize with fire g Instead of comparing the CXI blessing of God and trying to see if yours is better than the next person's, just rejoice together. The blessing inside Elisabeth connected with the blessing inside of Mary. In the previous week's lesson the focus was on Mary, the mother of Christ. It was observed how she gave honor and praise to God for what He had done in her life She realized that in spite of herself God chose her to carry and deliver the Savior of the world. In this week's lesson we notice that th e re was a nother wom a n named Elisabeth who h a d re a son to praise God too Luke's Gospel 1:39-45 highlight s the e vent of Mary and Elisabeth's coming together This portion of his writing teaches us that while the miraculous events may differ, there is still reason for all to rejoice An interesting thi!Jg to notice in this text is Mary's departure. Mary was in a place of semi-confusion and surprise when told of the mir acle she would experience. She had to deal with public accusation and ridicule and the po ssibilitY of being left at the altar After dealing with the shock and honor of the revelation she relocated. With haste she went to the land of Judah (vs. 39). Judah is a name that is syn-onymous with praise. Her leaving suggests that she departed one level and went to another. Upon hearing the "good news" of God she quickly to a place of praise ... Oftentimes when you hear of the good news of God and He has spoken words of promise in your life you need to quickly, without d elay, move to a place of praise. You have to leave quickly beca use there are some peo ple in your current residence who do not know or understand what God is getting ready to do in your life. When she arrives in Judah she meets Elisabeth. God sent her to someone who could understand what she is going through because she is being blessed, too. God con nects these two women so that they can encourage and support one another Although they have different situations, they share the commonality of being recipi ents of miracles from God. The people of God understand that although their miracles are different the giver is the -same. Although they do not come the same way, everyone has When Elisabeth sensed the presence of whom Mary was -carrying, the Holy Ghost filled her (vs. 41b). It is under the power of the Holy Ghost that Elisabeth can speak the words of blessing upo.n Mary. It is easier to rejoice and bless others in the midst of your own blessing when the Holy Ghost is work ing in your life Notice the humility of Elisabeth s speech She does not focus on her own blessing but celebrates Mary's. She f' concludes by saying to Mary 0 "blessed is she that believed" :::0 (vs.45). 0 Elisabeth' s words should send a clear message to all m persons that they can be Z blessed if they believe Here are two different women from m two different experiences eel-r;" -ebrating miracles because they believed. r-You, too, can praise.

A child's first visit to the dental office should occur no later than his or her first birth day Parents should wipe an infant's gums and teeth after each feeding, using a clean, moist cloth or baby toothbrush. Baby Bottle Tootl:t Decay, also known as "early childhood caries," is caused by prolonged contact with almost any liquid other than plain water. Sucking on a bottle filled with liquids that have sugar in them can cause tooth decay. The use of fluoride-contain ing dental products by children under age six should be carefully monitored as ingestion of higher than recommended lev els of fluoride by children has been associated with an increased risk of dental fluoro sis, which is associated with abnormal enamel development Sealants are substances used in the prevention of. tooth decay. It bas been shown to be a very effective method to pre vent on the biting sur face of teeth. Sealants are par ticularly hnportant for children who have a hlgh risk for decay. Healthy Mouths Lead To Healthy-Body H ere are a few steps to help you maintain good oral health: Brush your teeth twice a day, replacing your toothbrush every 3-4 months. Floss daily to prevent tooth decay caused by bacteria between the teeth and in the gums See a dentist regularly for cleanings and oral exams, espe cially if you're experiencing tooth sensitivity, tooth pain or facial pain. For a brighter smile, try these: Try The Baking Soda Booster -Mix baking soda with hydrogen peroxide to pump up your teeth whitening power. A few drops of hydrogen peroxide mixed with a heaping teaspoon of baking soda will make a paste that can help put a stop to yellowing and bring back the luster in a few months. Eat more fruits, especially apples, to clean teeth naturally. Cut Back On Sweets -Seriously curtail or cut out sweets and sugary foods to keep away tooth decay. Drink Tap Water for a good dose of teeth-protecting fluo ride. Eat Calcium-Rich Foods Make sure your diet is full of calcium-rich foods like canned fish, milk, broccoli and nuts to keep your teeth strong.

Sports Lions Release CB Brian Kelly BRIAN KELLY DETROIT --The Detroit Lions released Brian Kelly on Tuesday, after the veteran cornerback had complained recently about his lack of playing time. The 32-year-old Kelly suited up Sunday against Minnesota but did not play. He also did not play in Week 5 against Chicago. The Lions signed cornerback arid kick returner Dexter Wynn to take his place Kelly spent 10 seasQns with Tampa Bay before becoming a free agent and signing a three-year deal with the Lions in March. Detroit coach ,Rod Marinelli was a defensive line coach for the Buccaneers from 1996 to 2005. Kelly started 11 games this season, making 26 tackles and no interceptions. Wynn spent his first two NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and played the following two seasons for the Houston Texans. In 51 career games with 41 starts, he has aver aged 21.4 yards on kickoff returns and 8.6 yards per punt return. Bucs Regroup For Stretch Run In NFC South TAMPA-Defenseless, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers literally were run out of first place. That was the cold reality lingering Tuesday from a 38-23 loss to. Carolina in which one of the :_NFL's top defenses yielded 299 yards rushing and permitted the Panthers to convert eight of 10 third-down' situations. The Bucs (9-4) allowed one rushing touchdown, as well as a lone 100-yard rusher, all season before Monday night, when DeAngelo Williams and J .onathan Stewart both topped the century mark and each scored twice against them. "We've played very well defensively and last night, hopefully we can use that as moti:vf:ltion as we finisn.the -.seaaon," coach Jon Gruden srud in a subtone--reflecting disap pointment as well as a of rest following a middle of"th:e night flight home from Charlotte.

Poor tackling was a prob lem as Williams averaged 9.8 yards per carry on his way to a career-best 186 yards on 19 attempts. Stewart had eye-popping numbers, too, gaining 7. 7 per carry and finishing with 1_15 yards on 15 attempts. "They didn't take their foot off the accelerator. They just kept doing what they were doing and really gave it to us," cornerback Ronde Barber said. '11 j I lo.-1 .' ( "' j :.,.. '' f Tarvarls Time: .Jackson's Back In Action TAVARIS JA:CKSON EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn -During their first in-depth talk about his demotion, just last week, Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress told quarterback Tarvaris Jackson his time to play would come soon enough. The opportunity eerily arose three days later, when Gus Frerotte's twisted lower back forced him out of the game and returned the reins to Jackson. He shined in the suddenness, completing eight of 10 passes for 105 yards, the goahead touchdown and a career-best 143.8 rating while rallying the Vikings to a 20-16 victory on Sunday over the winless Detroit Lions. "He did a great job stepping in," running back Adrian Peterson said. "I wasn't surprised. I see him time after time in practice making big plays and mak ing good throws and things like that." Childress issued rare -praise for the project he helped pick in the second round of the 2006 draft and has developed at a so-far unsatisfying rate. ''Tarvaris did a great job.

"We all know how tough Marion B@rber is, but when he had his injury I felt, look, you'd have to shoot him to keep him off the football field," Jones said. "So I wa s surprised that we didn't have him. That's not meant to be critical of his toughness. It did come out that way, but fundamentally it was because he is so tough that you would have thought that he could play." AUBURN HILLS, Michigan --Antonio McDyess has re-signed with the Detroit Pistons a month after being dealt to Denver as part of the Allen Iverson trade. The Pistons announced Tuesday that McDyess was back for the rest of the season, but did not disclose financial terms of the deal.

Entertainment At 50, What's Left For Michael Jackson? MICHAEL JACKSON Michael Jackson turns 50 on Friday. What do you get for the man who has everything, including a killer discography, a couple of sexual assault accusations, at least one white glove, a sprawling ranch teetering on foreclosure, a family that can only be described as indescribable, and a button nose that often looks unbuttoned? Reaching The Big FiveOh is a profound event in every life. But for Michael, it represents a fork in his moonwalking path. One direction will take him to his own personal neverland, as in never be seen or heard from again. The other. will lead him back to stardom and his rightful place atop the pop throne. Which way will he go? Now that he's 50, will he make it to 60? And what will he be like if he does? Connect With Fans First step: End the seclu sion. Michael wants to get away from all the prying eyes -especially in the aftermath of his acquittal in his 2005 sexual assault case that threatened to put him in the slammer. What Michael has now is a different kind of prison, one of his own making. Whether he's in a residence 50 miles outside of Las Vegas or at his pad in Bahrain or someplace else, he's not connecting with his public. And in show business, either you're embracing your fans or pushing them away; there is no middle ground. l\Ia k< Sonw N <'W :\I usic Michael could also use a new CD, something that embraces his R&B/soul roots but also incorporates the latest in hiphop/pop/rock. He has the money to hire the best songwriters and the finest producers. Photographer Sues Chris Brown, Rlhanna CHRIS BROWN And Girlfriend, RIHANNA ST PETERSBURG, FLA photographer with tbt, a St. Petersburg alternative publication, is suing R&B singers Chris Brown and Rihanna, saying their bodyguards beat him and broke his camera. Luis Santana on Wednesday filed the $1 million lawsuit, which also names the bodyguards and a St. Petersburg club where the attack allegedly occurred May 6. Santana says the bodyguards tore off his shirt, knocked him down and repeatedly kicked him. He's seeking compensation for his $3,000 camera, pho tos that were lost, injuries and emotional distress. Brown's attorney, Kenneth Meiselas, denies the singer or his security were involved in the alleged incident. 50 Cent: Emlnem Is 1Like My Grandmother' I -50 CENT vs. EMINEM What is Eminem up to? Some photos from Santa Monica, California, surfaced online over the weekend in which Em is wearing all white and appears to be on some type of video set. Could it be for a clip from his forthcoming LP, Relapse?. His label has no comment as to where the pictures are from, but Em's good friend 50 Cent had plenty to say about his friend/collaborator. While 50 was shooting his latest film, "Dead Man Running," in Eu.rope, he took some time out to tell MTV UK that Eminem reminds him of his grandmother. "It's always a pleasure working with Em for me," 50 said. "When I leave here, I'm actually going back to the States, to Detroit, to work with him again. You know, me and Em, we work really close together. He's like a relative to me .... He's done something for me He's like my grandmother. He's someone that provided an opportunity for me to take care of myself when I could not take care of myself. My grandma did it when I was a child, and then Em provided the opportunity for me as an adult." Will S .mith Rolling Out Low-Profile Oscar Bid LOS ANGELES --Will Smith's new drama "Seven Pounds" is rolling out 'to tastemakers ahead of its December 19 release, having largely flown below blog ger radars until now Smith's role in the Sony film, as an Internal Revenue Service functionary who mysteriously drops into the lives of strangers in an apparent bid to help them, comes in a movie steeped in melancholy. That makes the drama an anomaly: It features the world's biggest movie star in a film that also is one of the season's most serious. There are grace notes about penance and sacrifice, but this isn't Tom Cruise in "Jerry Maguire." Since this movie is so much weightier than anything he's done before, the .WILL. SMITH role will be a litmus test of Smith's pre-viously unbreakable box office mettle; "The Pursuit of Happyness"' almost looks like "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" by comparison. (Both "Seven Pounds and. "The Pursuit of Happyness" were directed by Gabriele Muccino.) DREW-Z'S MOVIE REVIEW Four Christmases -Pretty good comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn.

National ., ::D 6 Simpson's 4 Accomplices Get Pro bation Democrats, White House Get Auto Deal White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joel Kaplan briefs reporters, Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008, at the White ... WASHINGTON Majority Democr ,ats and the Bush White House have finalized a deal to spend $14 billion on emergency loans for struggling U .S. automakers, congressional officials said Wednesday. Strong opposition lingered among some Republicans was final, although it .did report "very good progress." c m 0 m 3: LAS VEGAS The luckiest guys in Las Vegas this week we.re four-O.J. Simpson accomplices who walked out of court with pro bation while the former foot ball star sits in prison for his role in an armed confronta tion over memorabilia from his past exploits. Sentencing of the man who wielded a gun during the robbery sparked a courtroom outburst Tuesday from one victim of the hotel room heist who said Michael McClinton should have been sent to prison. "I'm just very disappoint .ed," said Bruce Fromong,. one of the two sports memorabilia dealers robbed by Simpson and the other men. "I agreed completely with probation for the two guys who were just there backing up O.J. But McClinton stood a couple of feet from me with a gun in my face and said, Til shoot your (exple tive).'" "Use a gun, go to jail. That's my theory," Fromong said. The collectibles dealer was ejected from the courthouse during sentencing of four of the men who joined Simpson on Sept. 13, 2007, at a casino hotel room where he con-Top (L-R):McClinton, Ehrlichand Bottom(L-R): Alexander and Cashmore. fronted Fromong and Alfred Beardsley, who were peddling mementoes of Simpson's career. "You've got to be kidding me!" Fromong exclaimed after Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass sentenced McClinton to eight years' probation. She suspended a prison term of two to seven years. The judge told McClinton: "You were the one that had. a gun. You were the one that brandished a weapon." But Glass said she considered McClinton's cooperation in testifying and the fact that he had no criminal record in granting him probation. She handed probation terms of six years to Charles Ehrlich, four years to Walter Alexander and three years to Charles Cashmore. All three spoke of being lured into the plan by Simpson, who asked for help in retrieving his al items. "On that day, everybody was a snake. O.J. Simpson was the snake charmer," said Robert Dennis Rentzer, Alexander's attorney. "The man has charisma. There is -something about him that captures individuals and draws them into his circle." The sentencing was not the end of the seamy saga, The judge scheduled a Dec. 19 hearing to discuss restitution for articles taken from the hotel room. Fromong has claimed he lost about $150,000 worth of memorabilia, while others have called that figure inflated. Simpson has said the items in the room were stolen from him: Glass acknowledged the issue is complicated and will require testimony. The White House did not go as far as to say the deal CD m ::D The measure could see a House vote later Wednesday ..... and be enacted. by week's erid It would create a govern-ment "car czar" to dole out the loans, with the power to force the carmakers in to bankruptcy next spring if they didn't cut quick deals with labor unions, creditors and others to restructure their businesses and become viable.

'.:1\ -Feature l:J c now Bas [hristmas.[hanQed? c m () m s:: llJ m ::0 If you a re in your late 40s or older, celebrating Christmas when you were a child was a lot different than it is today. I-Pods and other electronic gaagets that kids want today hadn t been created Just getting a pair of skates was enough. Today children s expecta tions have grown a nd reflect how commercial Chri stma s has become. A few people were asked how Christmas has changed since they were children. These are their responses: Tampa Housing Authority Director, Jerome Ryans: "I think we were more appreciative when I was a child, because we didn't expect that much and appreciated what ever we got. Our parents just didn't have the money. The chur. ch was the place to be when I was growing up "Christmas dinner was a big deal, and it was like a family reunion. We were all so thankful for what we had. Today, kids take Christmas for granted If you got a bicycle, you were fortunate. I think technology has spoiled today's children. Queen Miller: "I was glad to get a piece of fruit when I was a child. Today, they expect too much. Parents shower their children with too many gifts year around, and they don t know how to earn anything. They think you are supposed to give them whatever they want "Today's parent tries to make sure their children get everything. The have changed, and when I was a child, how you p.er formed in school had a lot to do with how you celebrated Chr i stmas . Diana Webb: "When I was a kid, we had snow. You won t see that in Florida. "Sometimes, you' d get something and sometimes you wouldn't. It was just important for families to get together The true meaning of Christmas is gone. Today, people only want to open gifts and eat. When I was a kid, you gave thanks to God first, then our doors would open to everyone. This is my time of year and although I have so little, I will share it with everyone I can. We need to reach out to each other today like we did when I was a kid." Gwen And Les Miller: "It's not as down-home as it used to be It' s all commer cial. Families used to enjoy just getting together. Christmas music and decora tions go up before Halloween today, and it's just all com mercial. "The reason for the season is gone. Keep in your mind and heart the reason for the season, and you'll always cel ebrate the real reason. Now, From Your Law Firm At;e : c ... .... : .\'(\/# New Year Am <(') Our45 Yea To The: 50t E.

Some people dec orate their homes while others decorate the hearts of others by extending a help ing hand . Last year, Reverend Karen Jackson Sims decided to adopt the Amen Outreach Center and the Hillsborough House of Hope shelters. The two places provide housing for families who suddenly fall upon misfortune. With the help of others, Reverend Sims collected wish lists and appealed to the community for gifts. "Last year was very successful. We were able to help people living in both of those shelters," she said. Once again, Reverend Sims, along with her husband, Roy Sims, and mother, Joanne Mumford, along with members of her church, have joined forces and are adopting the shelters again. The drop off location this year is Mount Zion A. M. E. Church, 5920 Robert Toole Drive, Riverview. Reverend Vincent Lane is the senior pastor . Reverend Sims said, "Rather than having a Christmas Party, we're using those resources to try and help more families. We have not had even one request for toys this year.

BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Everyone has felt the bite of a sagging economy and nothing has reflected that more than the number of foreclosed homes in Hillsborough County. Still, with the Christmas holidays approaching, peo ple still try to not cut back on how they celebrate that day. A few people were contact ed, and this is how they said the economy will impact how they celebrate Christmas this year Aja Green: "The economy has had a huge affect, but I'm going to make the most of it. I'm the single mother 'of 3 children and a business owner. I'm J:IOt getting the volume I used to, and that rriakes it tough. "Jobs are down, and the men out there either can't find jobs or they are incarcerated. This Year, my money won't stretch as far as it used to, and the bills keep coming regardless of what time of year it is." Bershawn Howard: "It's going to make it for me, but I'll get through it. I'm the single mother of two, and when Christmas comes, the children will "understand. We're a praying family and we keep our faith alive. "We won't have a tree, but we'll put up some lights. My children already have a lot of things, and they aren't very demanding. God never puts more on us than we can bear. This Christmas will not be like it has been in the past, but thanks to peo_ple like Tonya Lewis and David Winston, they will make it better for my family and lots of others." Michelle Willjams: "I don't reall'y celebrate Christmas, but as an activist, I will make sure I can help as many children as I can. I want to be Robin Hood this year, and I'm putting together a toy drive, "Toys For Inner-City Children," to help those in need. "It's horrible how the economy has affected every one. Our dollars just don't go as far as they used to. This is the time when we really need to reach out to each other." Lillian Stringer: "Being the fruggle person I am, H take advantage of all the sales. I'm finished shopping, because I shop all year long for Christmas. You get great bargains that way and it makes me feel better to take advantage of those opportu nities. "This formula has worked for me over the past 5 years, because before I was like everyone else and waited to the last minute. When I did that, I always spent too much money. Because of my formula, prices don't impact me like they may other peo ple." Darla and Elliott Saunders: "We're going to try to maintain as we have in the past. With gas prices going down, that has helped a lt:>t, but the economy has had some affect on all of us. It hasn't been overwhelming for us, and as long as we're together, we have what we need." .

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter The saga of Eddie Durant has been told before. Those close to him know the road he's traveled, and how he saved himself from death and a life in prison by turning to God and the church. Durant grew up gaining popularity as a top vocalist in the area during the days of the Gay Pappa Miles Teen Dances and area talent shows. Although he was sidetrackeq for several years, he continued to sing, and now has released his first Christmas single, "Let's Get Closer To God This Christmas." "I owe so much to so many people, but I have to put God first. When I decided to listen to what He was trying to tell me, that's when positive thin-gs started happening in my life." Durant said his manager, Carlton Burgess, inspired him to work on this project, and once they got started, he really got into it. "This is truly a blessing," said Durant. Burgess said of Durant, "this Christmas offering from Eddie will surely bless you as we celebrate the real meaning of the holiday. The song is well written and will inspire you to not only get closer to the Lord, but get closer to your family, friends, and church family." Burgess said he's proud of Durant and considers him a liv ing test imony that God can turn lives around. "The man you see before you transitioned from drug addic tion, prison and other difficulties transforming into a successful businessman, loving husband, and minister of the Gospel through song. "When you support ministries like Eddie's you sow good seeds into fertile ground, creating new and abundant opportu nities for his testimony to be heard around the world.

Bicycle Drive Bus-inessman [ontinues Givinl! BiYes To-Needy [hildren Oftentimes, our childhood memories have a profound affect our lives in ways we could never imagine. Alex Cooks knows all too well about childhood memories that lingers. Cooks was one of the younger children in a family of ten. Although his parents p1;0vided for their needs, he said he never had a new bicycle while growing up. "There were ten of us, 6 guys and 4 girls and I always wanted a new bicycle," the Mobile, Alabama native said. Those memories stayed in the back of his mind into adulthood. So, decid ed to do something about it: After moving to Tampa, Cooks opened Alex's Southern Style Barbecue at 5362 W. Village Drive in 1994. And the idea of collect ing donations from his customers to fund the project took hold. He placed a blue donation box on the counter and his customers started donating. In 1999, he held his first new bicycle give-away. We gave away 182 new bicycles 17 days before Christmas. The guidance counselors and .principals of the school sys..tem selected the recipients. "Each year, we increased 'bur giveaway by 100 bfcy cles. This is our 9th year of away the bicycles. --.. -'.'I feel that 100 bicycles 100 happy kids. Last year, gave away 1,416 bicycles, but because of the economy, our goal this year is 1.450 new bicycles," he said Alex Cooks will give away new bicficles to needy kids for 9t consecutive year (nhoto courtesy of the St. Pete Times). Cooks said the economy has had an affect on his col lection and donations have been down. He has collected about half of the donations he needs to reach his goal. But, that is not going to stop him. The driving force behind Cooks giving is that no mat-ter how many bicycles he gives away the need is always greater than the supply. "I'm going to continue col lecting donations right up to Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas, the blue box goes back on the counter and we start all over again," Cooks said. Cooks is married to Mrs. Aimee Cooks and they are the parents of four sons ranging in ages from 12 to 20 years. City Editor Iris B.
