Clearwater Police detectives continue to sort out the details of a stabbing this weekend that left a Tampa man dead Johnny Johnson, 36, was stabbed after he entered the home of his girlfriend, Khija Williams, early Saturday morning. A 9-1-1 call was from the residence after the incident, and Johnson was transported to a local hospi tal where he was later pro nounced dead. Family members of Ms. Williams said it's und-erstandable that members of Johnson's family knew nothing about another man, 0 because Ms. Williams never spoke of him. LL. According to the family C member who didn't want to be identified, there really wasn't a love triangle, but c the third party, Nathaniel en Jones, 27, and Ms. Williams met long before .,_ she knew Johnson.

She and Nate had been dating long before she knew Johnson. That's why his family knew nothing about him." The family member said Johnson had only recently found out about Nate and the day of the incident, Nate had just arrived in Tampa. "He didn't know the extent of the relationship between Johnny and Khija. She was with Nate Friday and Johnson was trying to con tact. her. She wouldn't answer his calls "That's when he used his mother's car to come to Clearwater to see what was going on. Khija talked to Ms. Dorothy Jordan (Johnson's mother) and asked her not to give Johnny her car because she didn't want him to come to the house." The family member said at the time of the incident, there was a lot of confusion JOHNNY JOHNSON ..... his death is still being investigated as a homicide. going on. The family member said both Khija Williams and Nate Jones were interviewed by detectives then released. Jones has since returned to New York and has been told to stay in contact with authorities here until the has bee n resolved. I personally liked Johnson, and this isn't easy for our family," said the familymember "Khija wishes she hadn't invited Nate to her house and knows now she used bad judgment. I witnessed one of the arguments between Johnson and Khija and most of our family functions ended that way I believe she cared for him because of his arthritis. Khija's flaw is she is arrogant and can be bel ligerent."

Publisher. The True Color Of Iraq ... :ooks can be deceiving. Historian J.A. Rogers tells :'. ;:us, "According to the Bible, the.eldest son ofShem :Noah's son and the supposed ancestor of all Jewswas Elam, and the Elamites -who would go on to conquer and rule that part of the Middle East, which would include modern day Iraq, were a Black people". So, you might ask, why is it that the media seldom shows any of the faces of Black Iraqis? Perhaps, it might be because of a little lmown effort in Iraq, that might seem similar to the ethnic cleansing which took place, in Bosnia. His name is Jalai Diyaab. In America, he would be accepted as a handsome, dark-skinned Black man. In Iraq, he and Free Iraqi Movement, the organization he leads, are part of more than two million Black Iraqis who are struggling to be recognized as a minority whose rights should be protected. Needless to say, it is an uphill battle. By and large, America is not amused, if it understands, at all. Having its own Black experience to contend with, sources say the American 'military and political arm in Iraq do not particularly understand when Jalai Diyaab explains, "People here in Iraq see us as slaves," adding, "They even c;all us "abd," which would mean "N-ger," in America. Diyaab continues, "Black people worked on plantations around Basra, doing the hard labor until there was a slave uprising, in the mid-8oo's." Yet, says Diyaab, Arabs here still look at us as being incapable of making decisic ,nis' or governirig our own lives." Many Black IraqiS continue to live in poverty and are 95 percent illiterate Does it sound familiar? So,. at least, -one of Iraqis may well have benefited from so-called "Iraqi' Freedom;" And guess who they look like? America's Auto Industry: The Last Dinosaur looming threat of losing the Big Three to or foreclosure deeply conc::erns us. The reasons we are concerned are elementary. America has become a total consumer-nation, compared to our history as a leader of the world's indust;rial revolution. Indeed, we are now hard-pressed to find in our homes 'or'garages that might have a label "MADE IN AMERICA" on it. No wonder our-economy is in slump it's in. As stated earlier this week by Rev. Jesse ,Jackson, Sr: President of The Rainbow PUSH Coalition, "In the last 50 years, America has outsourced the textile and shoe industry to China; sent a large portion of the automotive industry to Mexico and Canada, and our family farm industry has been lost to large multinational corporations." So, yes, indeed, we Americans have a right to sing the blues! Think about: it! Practically everything we use during the course of a day made in country'; beginning with our. alarm clocks and coffee pots. It lias not alwa}'s been that way. Now, consider Christmas, where these days, everything j.s IN CHINA!" Do not miSunderstand. We have no quarrel with global capitalism. What we are simply saying is, our nation must get a If the Big Three faU, if Detroit and America lose l 3 to 4 million jobs; if America continues to lose its indusW trial vitalit;y ac;ross the border and overseas, America will (!J no longer be America. And we may run the risk of finally :; knowing how it to be a Third World country. Remembering . i !though people look :! at the holidays as a time of f a mily gathe ring others have a different view of them. Some just gn through the motions for the sake of others For others, the holidays bring memories of loved ones who have passed away. I am in that number. It was 35 years ago today that my mother the hite Mrs. Lillian Thornton Holton died. Her death was a surprise because she wasn't ill and the cause of death was listed as natural causes. This mother of 12 children was only 53 years old at the time of her death. This column is not about lingering on sadness, I have learned that time passes no matter what and this time of year will come for the remainder of m y lif e : You can' t help but think about things like this during the holida ys However, you don't h a ve to linger on them. and be mournful. In my case, I'm sure that my mother is satisfied that her children remember her on this day One of her favorite sayings was, "Give me my flo -wers while I can see them." So, I know that she wouldn't want us to be depressed on this day. She would want us to move on with our lives. The thing that is mindblowing is the amount of time that has passed. it seemec like only yesterday and my memories of the day she passed are still so vivid. I was 17 and a sel).ior in high school at the time Back then having children of my own w a s a very dist a nt thought Tod ay, I'm a mother and grandmother mys elf. So far, the black hairs still out number the gray, but the b a t tl e rages on! But, for unknown reasons it just doesn't seem like 35 years have passed! Where has the time gone? When I think about the .leaps and bounds technology has made in the last 35 years, it is amazing But, she was a smart lady and I can see her with a cell phone, using the Internet with ease, knowing and having a computer. She.would know how to send and receive and wouldn't be afraid of technology. She would just go with the flow She's gone but not forgot ten The Harlem Globetrotters! I played high and college one of my greatest wishes was to see the Harlem Globetrotters play basketball Finally, I was blessed to see them play one of the most exciting baskethalf games I had ever seen. They against the Baltimore Rockets I remember nearly getting a whiplash as I tried to follow the ball as Globetrotters spun, dribbled, faked, shot and dunked the balls at lightning speed. What a great time we had, in seeing one of my dreams come true! For you who have neveq heard of the Harlem Globetrotters, let me intro duce them Most of our readers from my generation are familiar with the exhibition basketball that tours the world, showcasing its athletic skills with hilarious antics. Initially organized as a seriously competitive all-Black basketball team, the Globetrotters consisted of basketball players from the South Side of Chicago, who attended high school togeth er.

Spend your life g e tting a good education and that can never be taken from you as long as you live. Education is the battering ram that can beat down the doors of opportunity. We are excited about President Barack Obama. We are proud of Gen. Colin Powell, we love Bill Cosby and we respect Reverend Abraham Brown and we will always remember Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and many others. The important thing about these people is that they had something in common.

They also provide food and clothing.

Sadly, Franklin Middle and Sulphur Springs Elementary Schools also are on this state "hit list." How did Middleton get in such dire straits? There's plenty of blame to go around: students, parents, teachers, school administrators, district personnel and even loyal alumni (through our silence) all could have done more years ago to address the clear warning signs. Also, having three principals during t h o s e five years, each with. their own leadership style -may have undermined a consistent plan to raise scores on the state-mandated FCAT and raise graduation rates. But it's too late to cry over spilled milk now: currently, only 19% of Middleton's students are reading at grade level proficiency. Most come from elementary and middle schools illprepared in reading, writing and math. A dozen concerned alumni, .Parents, grandparents, East Tampa residents and others began .to .speak out in June. The group offered to assist students on campus during the school day, but was turned down. So community partners at the HOPE (Helping Our People Excel) Center, across N. 22nd Street from Middleton, ope n e d t heir door s in A u gust after s c h ool -free o f charg e -to all Middleton students who h a d not yet passe d the FCAT (which all lOth graders must take and re-take until they pass) to get a diploma. Younger children also come to HOPE after school. And while community support has been consistent, attendance by Middleton students dropped from 40 a day in September to 3 to 4 a day by December. School personnel say they can't "make" students attend afterschool tutoring -not even the after school tutoring on Middleton's campus with 26 paid Middleton teachers in the Extended Learning Program (ELP). Only about 75 students of some 1,000 students in the school's traditional program attend ELP tutoring consistently. How can the school make student attenat football, basket b all, baseball, track, volleyball and band practice mandatory (to stay on the team) -but make FCAT tutoring optional. ARE THE STUDENTS RUNNING THE SCHOOL? The late Dr. Frankye A. Berry (of Middleton English Department fame) is probably rolling over in her grave! Now, administrators say that in January 2009 they will make a stronger push to get more students, especially seniors, to afterschool FCAT tutorin' g both at the on-campus; ELP Program and at the off-campus HOPE Center. We hope it's not too late: FCAT exams are coming n March, and Middleton High School's future hangs in the balance.

In addition to health care, the Committee focuses on the economy consumer protection, energy, the environ-U.S. CONGRESSWOMAN KATHY CASTOR ... Appointed to Energy and Commerce Committee ment, travel, and tourism, which is vital to the state. The appointment to the House Energy and Commerce Committee will also allow Congress-woman Castor the opportunity to bring jobs to the Tampa Bay area. "I've wanted to be directly involved with crafting health care policy. That's one of the reasons I ran for Congress, and we're at a real turning point with the new Obama Administration I think every one is recognizing now that with our economic crisis, one of the answers has to be that we solve the health care problem for families," Congresswoman Castor said. Prior to launching her political career, Congresswoman Castor practiced Environmental Law for ten years. As a Hillsborough County Commissioner, served as Chairperson of the Environmental Protection Commission and was an advocate for affordable health care. Since being elected to Congress in 2006, Congresswoman Castor has served on the Rules Committee and the House Armed Services Committee. She was re-elected in 2008. Congresswoman Castor is also credited with taking the lead on energy issues throughout her tenure as a Congresswoman, and organized new congressional members to promote better gas mileage automobiles, a provision that was included in the landmark 2007 energy bill.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter With city employees still reeling from the aftershock of massive layoffs and employ ment freezes, last week it was announced that next year, the city will be facing a $35 mil lion budget deficit. Mayor Pam Iorio bas been meeting with the City Council to come up with a solution to the deficit that may result in reserve funds being used to cover the short fall. City Council Chairman Thomas Scott said the majority of the deficit is the result of rising payroll costs and a decline in property and sales tax revenue "Trying to keep everyone at the same salary and maybe only giVing out 2% or slightly higher merit increases may be an alternative. "All three unions (police, firefighters, and the ATU that 1 represents 2,000 blue-collar, technical and Clerical work ers) will be affected, as well as han-union employees." Council Chair Scott said the one thing that is definite is the cuts will have to be made in the area of salaries or cuts will have to be made on services across the board-CI1Y COUNCIL CHAIRMAN' THOMAS SCOTT "The Mayor wanted to pri vatize some ser\rices but we weren't in favor of that "We have a lot of research to do and number crunching to reach a solution .It's not just the city, but county govern ment and the School District as well Councilman Scott said by state law, the budget must be balanced. City Councilwoman Gwen Miller said she s pret ty sure that this time, no one will be laid off. "The cuts won' t have a direct impact on commt-. nities and the services they receive. But, the Mayor wants us to come up with suggestions to help with the deficit We will meet once a month to see what progress has been made." Sall'OJ Baplisl Church \'.

Local Belmont Clothiers Closes After 15 Years BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Bob Robbins grew up in Central Park Village. He embraces that part of his history and how important it was to have had that experience in his life. Robbins later attended Howard W. Blake High School, and it was there he said fashion became so important to him. "Being well dressed was very important to us when I was in high school. It was the one thing we did, and it didn't matter if you were rich or poor." After graduating from Bethune-Cookman College, Robbins worked for Montgomery Wards in Daytona where he increased his knowledge of fashion. He later learned more about the business of being a clothier at Kirby's Men's Wear. "Kirby's was a high-end BOB R()BBINS business, mostly for people with high incomes. So when I opened my first shop, I wanted to offer the same quality to my customers Fifteen years ago, Robbins opened Belmont Clothiers at the WinoDixie Plaza. A few years later, he moved to 2903 East Hillsborough Avenue. It was his focus on quality that led to him shutting down his business "People today aren't as concerned about quality as they used to be. They are more concerned about what's affordable, and I can understand that. "As far as my 15 years in the business is concerned, it's been a rough road, but it's been a glorious ride. My clientele supported me through the tough times and through thick-andthin." As far as what lies ahead for Robbins, he said life has taught him that Belmont Clothiers was nothing but a resource. "God is the source. Just as He's given me this, the next time, He'll give me something else. My glass is half-full, not half-empty Robbins said he has a sale going on now to liquidate his inventory and he said he will continue to send clothes to Haiti as he's done the past five years.

State The Florida Classic Is More Than dust A Game BY JULIA E. JACKSON B-CU 1987 Grad Although the economy is aff ecting eve ryone's life, the economy didn' t affect those who had the ir sights set on atte nding the 29th Florida Classic. More than 70,000 filled the Citrus Bowl to watch the annual game between Florida A&M University and BethuneCookman University. The Rattlers defeated the Wildcats 58-35 The Florida Classic Consortium received a check in the amount of $285,768.00 from its sponsor, State Farm Insurance. The bands and the half time show, as we all know, is one of the drawing cards of the Classic. FAMU being the home team, opened the Classic by outlining the number 44th in honor of President-Elect Barack Obama, before playing the National Anthem. Bethune broke out with a total surprise this year, featuring nationally-known rap artist, Plies, singing one of his top hits with the B-CU band FAMU concluded its halftime presentation with a gospel song, "Never Could Have Made It," The pther highlights which make the Flor i da Classic a classic, is that the presidents of _both schools changed outfits 3 consecu tive times during their pre sentations. Oh, and we can't 'forget B-CU's Head Coach, Alvin Wyatt, who mad e his fashion statement by entering with an all-white, stud ded leather suit, and afte r halftime broke out in another outfit. So, don t miss next year's event and the largest fash ion show in the nation! The Florida Classic is more than just a football game and more than just an in-state rivalry. It is now classified as the largest football game between two historically Black colleges in surpassing the Bayou Classic between Grambling and Southern in New Orleans, making the game the top contest in NCAA Division !.Football Championship.

Moore Ho.me Replica Held MIMS, FL-On Sunday, December 14th, the Florida State Conference NAACP held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore home replica construction. The replica construction was part of the Annual Harry T and Harriette V. Moore Memorial Service held each year. The Harry T and Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park, the location of the original Moore home family site, was purchased by Brevard County in 1994, and the Cultural Center was dedicated in April 2004. The park honors the legacy of the Moores, who were the parents of two daughters, educators, local and national civil rights activists. In 1934, Harry T. Moore organized the first Brevard County Branch of the NAACP He later organized an additional 50 branches' throughout the state. On Christmas Night, 1951, a bomb exploded under their home and fatally injured both Mr. and Mrs. Moore. Mr. Moore died en route to the hospital. Mrs. Moore died on January 3, 1952, the day following the funeral of her husband. The couple had returned home after celebrating their wedding anniversary. They had been married on Christmas Day 25 years earlier. The park is dedicated to commemorate their lives, to promoting awareness of their contributions to the early civil rights movement, and to preserving African American history. The Cultural Center is a repository of Moore family artifacts and historical documents featuring strategic events beginning with the Emancipation Proclamation ending slavery in America. The park. is operated by the Brevard County Parks and Recreation Department's North Park Operations.

Sports Bucs In Must-Win Situation When they tell you the game is much faster on the professional level, just look at what's h _appened to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and you will see evidence of that. In a matter of six days, the Bucs went from 9-3 and tied for the NFC South lead, to 9-5 and holding on to the final wild-card playoff spot after two division loses to the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons. As it stands now, the Bucs need to win their last two games at home against the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders. This Sunday when the Bucs face the Chargers, they will be limping into the game with quarterback ,Jeff Garcia suffering from an injured leg. Also, defensive tackle Chris Hovan has an injured knee and defensive end Gaines Adams is fighting an ankle sprain. Derrick Brooks, who has been named to his 11th Pro Bowl, has a rib injury and is being held out of practice until late in the week. Head Coach Jon Gruden has given Brian Griese some snaps in practice and Luke McCown is still not expected to see any action. The Chargers (6-8) have won their last two games and have an outside chance of winning the lackluster AFC West. The Bucs haven't lost a home game this season and will have to make it 8-0 if they hope to get a wild card slot. The Bucs hold a tiebreaker .over the Falcons, but the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles are also vying for a wild card slot. Subscribe Todav!

Sports NAACP Investigating Football Player's Death JACKSON, Miss.--The NAACP is conducting an independent investigation into the shooting death of a George County High School football star. Gulf Coast NAACP President Curley Clark says the civil rights organi zation has ruled out suicide as the cause of death for Billey Joe Johnson. The 17 -year-old died December 8 after his vehicle was stopped by a sheriffs deputy. The NAACP is conducting interviews, and has sched uled an independent pathol ogist to conduct an autopsy. Sheriff Garry Welford had said it appeared the gunshot was self-inflicted, but he asked District Attorney Tony Lawrence and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation to review the incident. In a statement issued Monday, Lawrence cautioned that it was too early to determine how Johnson, a highly-touted running back, had died. "It is too early in the process and therefore, impossible, to conclude anything as to the manner of BILLEY JOE JOHNSON, JR. death," Lawrence said. "We cannot conclude anything until forensic testing is com plete. At this time we have not received a final autopsy report or any other report from the many forensic tests that were performed. Further, the investigation will include information and witnesses relevant to the shooting, some of which still need to be interviewed." "This is an ongoing inves tigation, and I caution members of the community to avoid rumors and speculation and let the independent investigation proceed to a conclusion," Lawrence said, according to the Hattiesburg American. Mattress Revolution U.S.A "A Revolution In Price, Quality, And Service. Police said the junior tail back apparently shot himself during a traffic stop in the early morning hours of Dec. 8, after a deputy walked back to the patrol car to run a license check. "I [asked] for his drivers license and advised him to have a seat in his vehicle while I check his license out," the deputy who made the traffic stop wrote in a report, which Lawrence released Monday "When I went back to my vehicle I picked up the radio to call it in and heard a gun shot and glass breaking," the deputy, Joey Sullivan, wrote in the report "I looked up and the black male fell on the ground and the gun he had in his hand-fell on top of him. I called dispatch and advised them that the subject had shot himself to send me some help. Johnson rushed for more than 4,000 yards in his high school career. He reportedly had scholarship offers from universities including Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State and Oregon. Bucs' Brooks, Smith Voted To Pro Bowl After missing the pro bowl for the first time in 10 years in 2007, Derrick Brooks is back among the elite. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' rock on defense was select ed as a reserve outside line backer, the 11th time in his career he's been chosen for the February party in Hawaii and he's not going alone. A new face is headed to the Pacific islands, a face which wasn't even on an NFL 53-man roster for the first month of the season Clifton Smith was selected as the NFC return man thanks to his NFL best 15 yards per punt return, and 27.3 yards per kick return. The two touchdowns haven't hurt either considering he's the only player to DERRICK BROOKS And CLIFTON SMITH take both a punt and kick return back for six this sea son. Together, Smith and Brooks will be the sole representatives of the Bucs at this year's Pro Bowl, but the career commonalities stop there.

Thought to be out for the season because of a neck injury, Jones returned to practice Wednesday and is expected to play Saturday night, both at cornerback and returning kicks, after missing only one game. "It surprised everybody," coach Wade Phillips said. "He's got nine lives. Maybe he's got 18 lives." Jones was injured two Sundays ago against Pittsburgh in his first game after a six-week suspension for violating the league's 'PACMAN' JONES personal conduct policy. Tests showed a herniated disk and there was bilk of shutting him down for the season. Haynesworth can Become ...

The Family. Local -Judge Orders New Trial For Murder Defendant After two days of watching the d efense lawyer for a man accused of murder struggle, Circuit Judge William Fuente grew tired of waiting for customary defense motions to overturn the December 4th conviction or requ e st a new trial. -David Rolon, 41, is accused of fatally shooting Mario Robinson, 28, during a dispute in March of this year over a parking space He was facing a 25-year-to-life prison term. This past Monday, Judge Fuente initiated his own order of a new trial for Rolon, saying his attorney, Byron Christopher, did not render effective assistance and didn't adequately prepare for the trial. The law allows a judge to act on his own without receiving a motion from either-of the opposing sides in granting a new trial if he decides a defenda% wasn't tried fairly. The 6t Amendment guar-DAVID ROLON antees defendants competent legal assistance. Christopher was privately retained as Rolon's attorney. An alternate juror reported ly said the entire courtroom saw Rolon was getting poor representation. Judge Fuente's order noted that Christopher did not adequately prepare Rolon to testify. He also noted that Christopher had MARIO ROBINSON discussed Rolon's testimony with him for less than 5 min utes. State Attorney's Office spokesperson, Pam Bondi, said their office will not appeal the ruling by Judge Fuentes "The trial cost taxpayers a lot of money and to put the victim's family members through the process again will be painful."

National ffi Obama's Inaugural Choice Sparks Outrage 0 w c c a: LL a: LL c z < c en w ::J t-> a: w > w c w :X: en ::J President-elect Barack Obama has chosen pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration. Prominent liberal groups and gay rights proponents criticized President-Elect Barack Obama Wednesday for choosing evangelical pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at the presidential inauguration next month. President-Elect Barack Obama has chosen pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration. Warren, one of the most influential religious leaders in the nation, has championed issues such as a reduction of global poverty, human rights abuses and the AIDS epidemic. But the of the Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, has also adhered to socially conserv ative stances -including his opposition to gay marriage and abortion rights that puts him at odds with many in the Democratic Party, especially the party's most liberal wing. "[It's] shrewd politics, but if anyone is under any illusion that Obama is interested in advancing gay equality, they should prob ably sober up now," Andrew Sullivan wrote on the Atlantic Web site Wednesday. People for the American Way President Kathryn Kolbert told CNN she is "deeply disappointed" with the choice of Warren and said the powerful platform at the inauguration should instead have been given to someone who has "consistent mainstream American values." "There is no substantive difference between Rick Warren and James Dobson," Kolbe-rt said. "The only difference is tone. His tone is moderate, but his ideas are radical."

Infant And 2 Men Shot In Miami, Suspects Escape MIAMI --An infant is in critical condition after being shot in Miami, along with two adults Saturday evening. According to the MiamiDade Police Department, the victims were playing dominoes iri front of their home in the 5000 block of Northwest 22nd Avenue. Two men pulled up in a white truck. The passenger, a man wearing a ski mask, got out of the vehicle and began firing shots. Milliage Chester and his buddies ran for cover when shots rang out in the Liberty City neighborhood. "I had to keep from getting hit, that's what I was thinking." Investigators say the gunman :sprayed a crowd of people with bullets. An infant in a stroller was hit, along with two neftrhy men. Investigators do not know if the victims are related, or what .the motive was. The-victims were all taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital. One man and the infant are in critical condition.

The infant's family was too distraught to discuss how the child ended up clinging to life. For neighbors, the infant's condition has hammered ho'me a fear. "The baby, that's what's shook me up. To hit that baby like that: I hope that baby mak-e it," Chester said. The suspe'cts escaped and are still large. They believe wen are drivmg a white Dodge Ram pick-up truck.

All About You Happy Birthday SAUNDRA REEDGUED Wow, 45, lif e i s good a nd I'm g r a t eful. Paper Trail DAINNOVATOR In this 7 day cycle, 365 days I'm back by popular demand on December 15th in the "Red Zone," still turning smiles into frowns with no voids in my life, thanks to God, despite my purpose, yet God's plan. In 'o8, God showed me He was worthy of a paper trail test. Even if I couldn't trace Him, I had to learn to trust Him. To show men who want ed to see me on the bottom that I am the top. To my "Commercial Imitators," i only fear God and my shadow. I see you can know so much, but yet know nothing. Failure will never overtake me I'm in position and refuse to be. moved. My destiny to succeed is far and beyond man's expectations. Many may stumble and fan; but only the great will get back up, "here I am." Now that the game has shifted and Obama is in, I need all my imitators to take heed and make th.at change . Remember the failure is not in God, it's in us. Do you do, evaluate and that motivates. God said He'd fight my bat tles and I'd get the victory! For He is worthy of a paper trail test. Don t live off false hop e No m a tter what I wl1l s t a nd to see God' s promise 'Da Innovator. Happy Birthday SERITA 'REE REE' HILLMAN Much love to you Boo Boo. KEENA II Birthday wishes go out to our baby as we celebrate the gift of life.

Love, mommy and daddy, Keena and Robert. Religious lnforaning The Least About The Greatest Throughout the Christian church this is a joyful time of year. Mimy people celebrate this season through the act of giving and receiv ing gifts. From the Biblical perspective the cer emony of exchanging gifts limits what the season is rea ll y all about. Anyone who looks forward to this seaso n only to r ece ive a gift miss es out o n eve n m ore. Luk e's account (recorded in Luke 2:8-20) of the nativ ity of Christ is full of gifts to be received. Throughout this text there are many things that a reader can celebrate and be excited about during this season. Consider verse eight. These men were in a field, tending sheep. In other words they were employed. They were working. People have gotten so comfortable with life that they think employment is guaranteed. For these men they were working doing something that either people did in the familyor for a family that hired them. This was not an exciting job to have. This was not a profession highly sought after. But regardless of what it was or their status in the community they were working. They may not have been in the tax collector's office, but they were working. They may not have been the owner, but they were working. Sometimes instead of murmuring or complaining in the mid s t of people being l aid off, y ou should r ejoice a nd b e grate ful th a t you are work ing. Here i s the other gift. Verse nine s t ates that the angel of the Lord came upon them. On a job that was lonely, not favored upon, tedious, and a .bunch of other stuff, God showed up. The blessed gift is knowing that no matter where you work, God can show up. No matter how isolated you are in your employment, God can reach you; God does not just show up to the nice plush office buildings, He shows up in the fields, the auto garages and in the ditches. The gift this season is to know that no matter where you are God can get a message to you. While these men were working, God gave them a word. God revealed something to them that no one else knew. These men were working on a job no one really wanted. BIBLE-BASED FELLOWSHIP CHURCH MUSIC & WORSHIP ARTS MINISTRY PRESENTS 'T1 :D 0 l> Your occupation do es not determine your calling. There are some people who (') clean the toilets and get more revelation from God m than the CEO. Whatever you do, do not allow people ..... to devalue your service to God based upon your daily occupation. The church might be better off in some cases if they stopped looking for the educated, the 'social elite, and the corporate board to carry out all the high task of the church God showed up to these men in the field. That is a blessing to know. To know that God can use those out in the fields is good to know. When they saw the baby J es us, they pra i se d and g lo rified God Why? Becau se seeing Him was th e greatest gift they had ever re ce ived. Th e gift to rec e ive this season is the fulfillment of God s word in your life. The 'TI gift to receive this season is 5 knowing that if God said it ::C will come to pass, it will come to pass. (f) You have a reason to celem brate. You have a reason to praise. Glorify God because z God spoke to you in whatev-. er place you were in and m told you about a man, who C rcould save, deliver and set r-free.

It's the thought that counts The practice of giving gifts at Christmas came from the original giving of gifts from the three Wise Men to acknowledge Christ's birth. December 25 was chosen to represent the birthday of Christ because there were over a dozen religious figures that were said to have been born on that day, WAY TO GO DIAMONDS! Mt. Pleasant celebrated its 1st Annual Holiday Parent Social on W ednesday, December 10, 2008. A seafood buffet was served. Raffles prizes, and more were given out. On D ecember 16, 2008, at 2 p m ., we had the crowning of the Mr. & Miss Diamond. The students chose their candidates from their homeroom classes based on academics, sonality, and of course popularity. The homeroom teachers were very compet itiv e against eac h other as well as the students. The candidates were 6th graders: Jermeka. before Jesus was born. The actual birth of Jesus is unknown. It is customary for the eldest capable member of a large family to have first choice of hosting Christmas dinner. Sometimes families do not get along and disputes erupt at the family gathering. Try to put all grievances behind you. Invite everyone and try to mend old wounds with estranged family members. Remember the Reason for the Season! The Birth of Jesus Christ!

Health News Diabetes Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases characterized by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Seventeen million Americans have dia betes, and over 200,000 individuals die each year of relat ed complications. Millions of people have diabetes and do not know it. However, with. early detection and treatment the more likely the serious health consequences of dia-. betes can be prevented or con trolled. There are several different types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes was previously called insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile-onset diabetes. Gestational diabetes is a form of glucose intolerance that is diagnosed in some women during pregnancy. Type 2 dia be tes was previously called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or adult-onset diabetes. Type 2 diabetes may account for about 90% to 95% of all diagnosed cases of dia betes based on research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) It usually begins as insulin resistance, a disordeq in which the cells do not use insulin properly. As the need for insulin rise, the pancreas gradually loses its ability to produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is associated with older age, obesity, and family history of diabetes, history of gestational diabetes, impaired glucose metabolism, .physical inactivity, and race/ethnicity. African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, American Indians are at a particularly high risk for type 2 diabetes. Type @ diabetes is increasingly being diagnosed in children and adolescents. Treatment: Many people _With type 2 diabetes can con trol their blood glucose by fol lowing a careful diet and exeq-. cise losing excess weight, and taking oral medication. Many people with dia betes also need to take med ications to control their cho]estero! and blood pressure. Diabetes self-management education is an integral component of medical care. Diabetes can affect many parts of the b ody and can lead to serious complications such a blindness, kidney damage, and lower-limb amputations. Working together, people with diabetes and their health care p-roviders can reduce the occurrences of these and otheq diabetes complications by controlling the levels of blood glucose, blood pressure, and blood lipids and by receiving other preventive care practices in a timely manner. Physical activity and eating right are key factors in leading a healthy lifestyle and reduc ing chronic illnesses.

MOO li_080806AH08 Prevent Heartburn By ., lJ c c m (') m OJ m lJ Heartburn may feel like your heart is on fire, ..... but what's "burning" is actually your esopha-JD gus. Acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux 1\l 0 disease (GERD), occurs when the stomach o (X) acids enter the esophagus, causing pain and burning sensations. Left untreated, GERD can lead to serious medical consequences, including narrowing of the esophagus, bleeding, or even a condition called Barrett's esophagus, which increases your risk of developing esophageal cancer. But experts have found a simple way to prevent GERD in the first place: Eat more slowly. Most people need to work on slowing down many areas of their lives, and mealtime is a perfect place to start. Besides aiding your digestion, eating your meals slowly can help your waistline too, by giving your stomach a chanc.e to communicate. to your brain that it's full. Time yourself, just to how long it takes you to eat an average meal Try to .take a full 20-30 minutes (you might have to build up to this slowly) to finish your food. If you are experiencing heartburn or a:fter meals on a regular basis, see your doctor, before GERD causes irreversible damage.

Or if you have the following symptoms: a fever (over 101) difficulty breathing swallowing or opening the mouth rash ear ache joint pain nausea or vomiting blood in saliva tender or swollen glands in the neck Protect Your Kids' Hearing K ids' ears contend with a lot. Loud music from personal stereos, power mowers, workshop tools, motorcycles, ambulance sirens, concerts, sporting events --and have you been to a school cafeteria recently? Let's face it it's a noisy planet we live on. Sounds that are too loud and that last for too long can cause noise-induced hearing loss. People with noiseinduced hearing loss have trouble detecting high pitched sounds -such as certain speech sounds or the voices of women and children. Many also have tinnitus, a disorder that causes a continuous ringing, roaring or clicking in the ears. Once hearing is damaged, it doesn t recover. Studies show that people who live in rural areas are especially at risk for hearing loss. That's probably because of their exposure to farm machinery and other loud noises Even a small loss of hearing can diminish a child's quality of life forever. It can affect school, sports and other activities as well as relationships As adults, hearing loss may affect their job opportunities That's why it's so important to protect hearing at a young age . Children need to learn about the causes and preven tion of noise-induced hearing loss early on. That way, healthy. hearing habits become a natural choice. These habits are simple. They include turning down the volume on a portable media player or wearing earplugs at a concert. So teach them to turn down the volume, to walk away from loud sounds and to wear hearing protection such as earplugs when they're near loud sounds for a long time. Interstitial Cystitis I nte r s titi a l cys titi s, a ls o known as IC, is a p ainful, and ofte n d ebilita ting, chronic conditi o n in w hich the bl a dd e r lin i n g becomes irrita t e d and infl a m e d Th e symptoms of IC includ e p a in in the p e lvic a r ea a n u r gent a nd fr e quent n eed to use the bathroom, and pain during or after sex Despite these painful symptoms IC can be difficult to diagnose, c ausing many p eo ple to su f f e r in sile nce for year s Researc h indicates th a t mo s t IC pati ents consult a t least five physicians, including psychiatrists, sometimes over a period of more than four years befor e interstitial cystitis is diagnosed. One of the reasons for this is that IC symptoms can be easily confused with the s ymptoms of other health conditions like recurrent uri n a ry tract infection s, overac ti ve bl adde r or endometrio sis. There is no cure for IC, but onc e diagnose d p atients do have treatment options to help manage the condition. When treating IC, a multimodal approach, including dietary restrictions and other pain management options, is often recommended.

Entertainment Rock's Daughters Want Presidential Playmates SASHA And MALIA OBAMA First daughters are popu lar by definition, but Barack Obama's girls Sasha and Malia's friend r equests, to borrow from the parlance of Facebook, are becomin g more impres s i ve by the day. Chris Rock told reporters in New York City, "(Obama's) g irls are a little o ld e r than mine." (Malia i s 10, Sash a 7. Rock's girls a r e 6 and 4). "My girls want a playdate. They look at the youngest and they're like, 'We can p[ay with her, Daddy.' We'll see." The Rock girls could take a play from the "Nahed Brothers playbook and write a song about Obama. The star of that Nickelodeon series, 13-year-old Nat Wolff, was inspired by Obama to write the song -"Yes We Can," which was played on the show's Dec. 13 Christmas special. Wolff said, "He (Obama) got to hear the song and his daughters called me up and I talked to them and if was so cool." All of this of course raises the question of how long the Obama girls can li ve as normal a life as possibl e While we await confirmation as to w h ether the future first daughters will appear o n Hannah Montana, the roster of ce l e b s who w ill be turning up in Washington for Obama's inauguratio n continues to take shape. :lJ c Paula Abdul Is As Good As Gone From 'Idol' }< c m 0 m 3: m m :lJ Paula Abdul has spent the better part of the week telling anyone who would listen that she's dissatisfied with. the producers of "American Idol" and the she's upset_ with Simon Cowell ("he's like a family member you can't get rid of') Seems a little strange to air so much dirty laundry just weeks before the new season of "Idol" premieres, but as it turns out, Abdul might not have much reason to care about awkwardness. That's b eca use she's seriousl y co n s idering not going back to Idol" at all. "Paula has a reality show on MTV ('Rah! Paula Abdul's Cheerleading Bowl') and h e r jewelry line, says a source close to Abdul. "S h e's got no reason to put herself through the stress of the show if she does n't want to. She's all but done; and given h e r other successes, she has no reason to be afraid about speaking out now." An "Idol" so urce says that the scenario -one that includes Abdul leaving as early as the pretape d audi tions is one they're prepar-PAULA ABDUL ing for. "Obviously we have th'ree other judges w ho can carry the show, and if s h e l eaves befor e the liv e shows, the auditions can be edite d so that she's hardly noticed." While some rumors claimed that Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz were shopping baby photos of their son, Bronx Mowgli, another story said that Bronx's photos weren't up for grabs at all. In response to the idea that the couple weren't getting any magazines to bite at a h e fty price tag during a tough economy, a rep for Simpson-Wentz said, "We are not offering photos to the m edia, so there is nothing to 'bite at. "' She might want to pass u; the message along to her 1\) father, Joe Simpson, o 0 though. According to an e-co mail he sent tci editors prior to the birth, ph-otos were very much for sale.

About a half-hour into their talk, he realized that he was speaking to the saddest person he'd ever met. Q a: u.

It turned out the man had moved to the West Coast to get away from his mysterious past. "I thought, one way to deal with it is to move away, change your life and find a new occupation," Nieporte says. "What is another way? What are the lengths that a character would go to make amends for a loss of life? How mariy years have to go by before you can forgive yourself, and when is it OK to live again?" Those questions eventually would become "Seven WILL SMITH Pounds, n the tale of a m!ln despondent about a past mistake who decides to redeem himself by committing seven acts of kindness for strangers before taking his own life. (The film, whose title is derived from William Shakespeare's play "The Merchant of Venice," opens on December 19 via Sony.) Once there was a solid draft, the producers approached Will Smith and his production partner, James Lassiter. The group had worked together on 2006's "The Pursuit of Happyness," which earned Smith an Oscar nomination for best actor. "Will told me, 'Look, I planned on reading two or three pages and putting this thing down, but you had me by the first page,"' Nieporte recalls. "He told me he had to know what happened to the guy. He read it straight through and called up in the morning and said, 'I've got to do this."' Smith too had a few notes, including revising the original fantastical ending to make it more relatable. "That turned out to be a great note because it allowed me to bring the love story (involving a cardiac patient) full circle in a way that I never had in my earlier drafts," Nieporte says. Finding financing was not a problem. "Happyness" had cost Sony a mere $55 mil lion and grossed $300 mil lion worldwide, so the studio was more than eager to be in business again with the world's biggest movie star and the same creative team. The "Seven Pounds" budget was similarly modest -slightly less than $55 mil lion. "Will said, 'In "Pursuit of Happyness," we got the man cry'," Nieporte says. "In this movie, I kriow we've got the man cry!" Fishbume Enjoys Memorable First Day On 'CSI' -Job LOS ANGELES -Laurence Fishburne's debut on "CSI" boosted the show to its best numbers since its ninth-season premiere in October. Fishburne's first appearance as Raymond Langston spurred viewer interest in CBS' Thursday night tentpole show, and the network won every hour of the night. "CSI" was seen by 20.9 million viewers, a tally bested only by the 23.5 mil lion who turned out for the season premiere, according to Nielsen Media Research. Lead-in "Survivor" (13.2 million) was up slightly from last week. At 10 p.m., "Eleventh Hour" (13.4 mil lion) enjoyed its best performance ever. The potential ratings. impact of William Petersen exiting "CSI" and Fishburne joining the cast is the most uncertain factor in CBS' otherwise stable midseason plans. LAURENCE FISHBURNE The crime procedural was conceived as an ensemble drama, with a format that's stronger than any one character. But Petersen's departure is nonetheless expected to have an effect, with the network hoping the show will at least maintain its status as its top-rated drama. CBS was aided Thursday by top competitor ABC's decision to air repeats of both "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice." Who Should Sing At Obama's Inauguration? LOS ANGELES --Just a couple of weeks ago, we surveyed some of your fave celebs to give you their ideas on who they think should be performing during Barack Obama's inaugural festivities next month. Well, the suggestions keep rolling in for everyone from Beyonce and Norah Jones to... Michael Jackson?! Is it time for Obama to polish up on his moon walking? Beyonce has made no secret about wanting to sing for Obama at the inauguration. And David Archuleta thinks the singer-actress is a perfect choice. "Shegave a lot of support to Obama, and she's an ainazing): s{i:J.ger and performer,' the American Idol, star said. "She has it all. That definitely would be something I would be excited to see." Singer-actor Tyrese Gibson agrees, but joked that Knowles would have to take down the sexiness a notch or two. "She would have to put the three-piece on that night, not have so much skin out," he said. Gibson also named Norah Jones as one of his choices. "You just need to feel like you're hearing something heartfelt while you're there," he s .aid. "It's going to be so emotional to see this take place. You need the .right music to go along with it." What about Beyonce's Dreamgirls costar, Jennifer Hudson? The inaugural could be the first time the Oscar winner performs since her' 'fa-mily tragedy. Akon has mos: t surprising suggestion. "I'd like to see Michael Jackson _most," Akon said. "This inauguration will be making history, and we need the biggest artist in history to go up and do something."

Black Today's Birthday -You'll have to keep a balance this year between your savings and your spending. Don't indulge one at the expense of the other. Pay attention! Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You'd like to get out of town for' a while, but that's not a good idea. Well, let's put it this way: It won't be very easy. There's too much for you to do here. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Robbing Peter to pay Paul is not your favorite way to make ends meet as you well know You hate it. The solution is : Don't buy too much Aquarius (Jan. 207Feb. 18) -Use your natural charm and wit to win over your adversary This person is just as stubborn as you are, so this won't be a walk in the park But that's a good way to start. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Nothing seems to work out on the first attempt. If that's happening, don't blame yourself. It isn't your fault. It's just the way things are now. Try and try again. Aries (March 21-April 19) Folks are so stuck in their own positions, they're not lis tening to each other. Throw your considerable influence on the side of truth and justice. Holler if necessary Taurus (April 20-May 20) It's hard to get anything done when people refuse to compro mise. You can get some good ideas, though. Give them all a chance to talk, and take copi ous notes Gemini (May 21-June 21) -It will be hard to get away, or even make a connection with somebody who's out of reach. Don't even try to mail anything. Odds are high it'll get lost. Cancer (June 22-July 22) -Use something you already have to stretch your budget farther. It's also OK to get a less expensive item and dress it up. Some of the company brands are just as good as the originals. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -You have a clear idea of what you want. There will be opposi tion, though; you can bet on that. Win over a noisy critic with charm and your beatJtiful smile. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) At work, there will be one change in your instructions after another. Take notes and hold your temper. Later, you;ll be totally justified in charging a little bit more Libra (Sept. 23-0ct. 22) -Encourage everyone to put their imaginations to work. There'll be plenty of ideas, but the people won't all agree The competition spurs them to try even harder. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Communications are slower than usual now.
