:u c Features !< Readers Discuss Their Proudest Moment In 2008 c.. l> z c: l> BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor As we stand on the verge of a new year filled with hope and promise, we can't help but look back over the past year. It proved to be a historic year for the country as we elected a new president and the face of politics was changed forev er. Politics dominated the year as well as most conversations, but other important issues also took center stage in the personal lives of our readers . Some of them shared their proudest moment in 2008 with other Sentinel readers. Rufus Lewis said, "2008 was a proven year for African Americans in poli tics There is no limit as to what a person can do if he or she tries. We thank God for this." Ms. Karen Jackson Sims said, "Election Day was the proudest moment for me in 2008. There is just no question about it. Ms. Vivian Heyward said, "The proudest moment for me personally was making the Dean's List at Springfield College. Arrested and Concerned About Your Legal Rights?

Ms. Regina Lock DePass said, "My proudest moment in 2008 was when Senator Barack Obama was named the 44th President of the United States. That was the proudest moment of the year for me. Ms. Dianne Langston Hart said, "The election was absolutely phenomenal and my proudest moment was being a part of the election and knowing that all of the hard work the community put into it made it happen." Ms. Dee Merritt Bell said, "When I think of my proudest moment, the first thing that comes to mind is that I witnessed a Black 'man being elected as the President of the United States." Ms. Tawanda Bradley said, "We are so proud that he (Barack Obama) is the first Black president and although that is great, God had already ordained that. So, with that, it wasn' t the proudest moment for me in 2008, but the introduction to the proudest moment. "I held an election watch at St. James AME Church ....., of Progress Village for the l'l community and my proud-est moment was when I saw the excitement on the children's faces, their participation, and to see them getting involved in the election process, writing their speeches, doing cheers and all of that for this event. To see the children embrace the future was my proudest moment. Bobby Bowden said, "My greatest moment was 0 the historic election of :::0 Barack Obama, the first African American en President of the United m States.

Of all the words to be !: found in the dictionary, it is one of the newest t words in the English language. It is defined as "the giving of official authority or legal power." But what it means essentially is the sharing of power ... the building of oneness that invites all in and leaves none out. That' is what we, at the Sentinel wish for you, on this exciting and long awaited New Year. Indeed, historians have already begun sharpening their pencils. People are already saying this coming year will either make America and our world, or break America -and shatter our world. And all Americans are looking down into this depthless well, having already faced what may well have been the beginnings of a Depression, much like what we faced before most of us were born. We suppose, that is another way of saying, America and the world has a lot riding on the outcome of this New Year. So, what does it mean, what should we do? It means simply this. Rather than making resolutions, we should, for this New Year, make adoptions. Grab a broom and dustpan! Adopt a school! Adopt a sidewalk or a street! Adopt some governmental or community system. Instead of declaring war, declare peace and love, in your home, on your .street, in city, your .. te, your jour words, commit to helping take contrOl of your community and your collective -destiny. For, if the power is not ours to share; then with-. in whose hands does the power of our destiny reside? t= Z w en <( Emancipation Dav: 9 a: 0 ...I LL Now As Then churches throughout America held services commtenloJra1tin g Emancipation Day, January 1, 863. Emancipation Day celebrates the 'Emancipation Proclamation: two executive orders issued by Pres. Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War, which "declarecl' the freedom of all siaves' iii' any state of the Confederate States of America that did not return to Union control by January 1, 1863." Just as in the history of the passage of all Civil Rights -laws and Barack Obama's election, there was resistance to the Proclamation by slave-owners and supporters of slave_ry 145 years ago. While January 1, 1863 represented the of shackles of physical slavery, we are that January tst shoUld represent unshackling our minds and tho8e of our children. Certainly, Barack 'Obama's win aspresideni:-elect has proven that we. ha\Te within us the will to become chief executive of the United a,nything else to ..e. : So, when we-paiase to celebrate the significance of the Proclamation, our thought{i must include visions of the future. Let us see a tomorrow Where ali of our children complete . high school Letus Witness a tomorrow where more of our Black men l are college-bouncJ : or technically trained than are behind bars. . Finally,"let us envision a tomorrow where alt' Black families and communities are. peaceful and prosperous . Start The Year Oft Right ll too often, we hear about a tragedy where a child has been accidentally killed. The most recent incident involved a little girl named Miracle. She was only 10 years old. She was accidentally shot by her cousin, who is only a year older than she was two days before Christmas. Christmas will never be the same for that family. Children will be children and as such, they are a curious lot. Furthermore, the thing you tell them not to do, is what they are most likely to do. Telling them that a gun is dangerous and that they should not touch it just doesn't work. Florida law allows the owner of the gun to be charged in cases like this. However, there is nothing the law can do to this family that can be worst than dealing with their loss. Officials can prosecute them within the law, but that will only last for a season. But, the sadness, pain, heart break, and guilt will remain with them for the remainder of their lives. We all should take special care to ensure that guns are secured in a proper manner If a gun is easily assessable, it is trouble waiting to happen. Yes, a child could easily reach it and tragedy could strike. But children are not the only ones who are vulnerable. What about angry adults who may reach for a gun during an argument simply because it's there? We must understand. that possessing a gun comes with responsibility. The fact of the matter is, a gun is a danger ous weapon and should be treated as such. Once a bullet leaves the chamber, the shooter has no control over where it goes. .. Some things if broken can be replaced. If you break a favorite dish, you can most likely find its replacement. It may take some looking, but eventually, you may find it. But, death is permanent. It's not like in the movies where the person gets up and walks away. Once a life is lost, it is forever. That person Will never come back. And, you can't turn back the hands of time This is the time for reSolutions. So resolve to be a responsible gun owner. If you must have a gun, then you must make sure that it is properly secured. The responsibility is totally on the owner. Start the year off right to prevent tragedy. Be responsi ble. Happy New Year Emancipation s the great day drew nearer, there was more singing in the slave quar ters than usual. It was bolder, had more ring, and lasted later into the night. Most of the verses of the plan tation songs had some refer ence to freedom Some man who seemed to be a stranger (a United States officer, I presume) made a little speech and then read a rathei' long -paper -the Emancipation Proclamation, I think. After the reading, we were told that we. were aU free to go when and .where we pleased. My mother, who was stand ing by my side, leaned over and kissed her children, while tears of joy ran down her cheeks. She explained to us what it all meant, that this was the day for which she had been so long praying, but fear ing that she would never live to see." So did Booker T. Washington, as a boy of 9, remember the first day of his freedom, in early 1865. Irrtagine the joy and jubila tion of freed slaves on that bright day . Yes, this took place nearly two, years afteq President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, as confirmation that. many slave-owners and supporters refused to honor the procla-mation and continued to enslave Blacks long after the order was issued. January 1st,. Emancipation Proclamation Day was celebrated throughout the United States with church.services, banquets, parties and community festivals. Marking the 145th anniver sary of the "declaration that all slaves would be nently freed in all areas of the Confederacy that had not already returned to federal control by January 1863," the second part of the proclimia tion specifically na med ten: states that had not been named in the first part. Issued in two executive offers, the first one, issued September 22, 1862, freed all slaves in Confederate states that did not return to Union control by January 1, 1863. The second order, issued on January 1, 1863, named the states to which the orders applied. Many of you will be interested to know that the Proclamation did not free slaves in states considered as "border states" (Kentucky, Missouri, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia), or "any Southern state or part of a state already under Union control. In fact, the Proclamation initially only applied to slaves who had already escaped to the Union side. Of course," once slaves heard news of the Proclamation, more of them escaped to Union held lines. As the Union Army advancec southward, thousands of slaves were freed daily with a count of nearly 4 million freed slaves by July 1865, who were .included in the 1860 census. Moreover ; the Emancipa tion Proclamation granted the right for free slaves to enroll in the United States military and during the war, nearly 2oo,ooo Blacks (most ofthem ex-slaves) had joined the Union Army. No doubt, these additional fighting forces helped the Union forces defeat the Confederacy. I Continued On Next Page I

Mv Six New Year's Resolutions For The World I again, I find If at a crossds, on the eve of one of the most important' days of the year ... or should I say, of the coming year New Year's Eve is, by all traditional credits, far more important than New Year's Day One of the major reasons why is on this day, we human beings do what to otir knowledge -no other. being does, on land or sea. We make resolutions. By that I mean we allow our better nature to peer into our hopes and dreams and to' paint a portrait of what we want our world to become. Usually, I script my resolutions for myself But today, I thought .I'd turn over a new leaf, and write some resolutions for the world. First of all, I resolve to speak up even more, when I believe an issue is being mis represented or unfairly perse _cuted. I resolve to stan d beside individuals whose life style might be differentfrom my own life-style, not simply bequse I'm a rebel ( wpjch I really< a .m), but because I believe that every American has an inalienable right to live as he or she sees fit, as long as his or h'er life does not bring harm to self or to others. To heck with : wh _at .othe. r people: may think. What a person does in his or her bedroom is his or her business. However, when issues of the bedroom are transferred to debates in the boardroom or on the House of Representatives or Senate floor, then I must stand and let my feelings be heard Secondly, I resolve to Ieirn more about what is happening to my brothers and sisters in the Sudan and in Chad. Most certainly, I was outraged at the so-called ethnic cleansing that -occurred in BosniaHerzegovina. But I was even more chagrined and duly embarrassed that I said nothing about the mass murder -that was going on, in the vii lages of Sudan and Chad, where men, women and children were mowed down because of their religion. Third I resolve to donate money, food, clothing and time to our sisters and brothers in Haiti. Did you know that, at one time, Haiti was the richest island in the Caribbean, eclipsing even Cuba? Then, for reasons yet unknown, this land, which was also the New World's first Black nation, fell out of eco nomic favor and into cultural turmoil, political darkness and now hunger. This New Year will see much of my time and my mind on the problems of Haitians where many chil dren eat fla:vored mud-'cakes, simply because they have nothing else edible. Fourth, I resolve to better know my neighbors, not to get into their business, but to build better bridges -as opposed to fences between us, on our street. After all, we are more than neighbors. Whether we like to admit it or not, we are especially in times of storm. Fifth, i resolve to be more kirid and loving to my family -even to family members who give me a headache sometimes, by the way they I resolve to look. at myse}f : ijl 'the"mifror. ; before I shake mY fists :at otners -::. it could very well be me who is the Grinch, instead of someone else. And finally, I resolve to help President-elect Barack Obama clean up our environment by conserving energy, planting trees and by walking a little straighter and pulling up my baggy pants. After all, every little bit helps, now doesn't it? Well, I would write more but I've run out of space. Besides, if I do everything I've already resolved to do, not only will I be busy, but Lord knows, I will certainly be tired. So, here!s to resolu-tions! And here's to our friendship, yours and mine! Black American Insight continued from page 4-A So, we should all pause for a moment to honor the merno-. ry of our ancestors who were freed 145 years ago and pay tribute to Abraham Lincoh1's executive order. Regardless of moti vation for issuing the docu_ ment, our freedom was the en_ d result. And in this instance, the end more than justified the means! Now, after our moments of remem brance, let us pledge to fight all slavery in any form on this planet in the future. Harambee and Happy New Year! :II c c... )> z c )> :II -< 1\) 'Excuse Mel The President's Name Is Bush' 1\) 0 0 <0 -.. s the Israelis call it, :. they are engaged in an all out war with Gaza. It is an unfortunate bat tle that has been brewing for quite a while. Yes, we wish this war had not taken place. Yes, we wish it would end immediately. The war and the safety of the millions of innocent people are of utmost concern But in this writer's opinion there is a situation that is also very important. That is the dumb questions and comments that are being asked by so man y media types. Turn on your television or read your newspaper and then be shocked. The news media is looking at the conflict between Israel and Gaza and asking what is Barack Obama going to do? What should he be doing? Or what will he do after January 20,2009? Excuse me, but the war is going on now. The President of the United States is George W. Bush and not Ba'rack Obama. Sure, he is the president-elect, but the United States Constitution does not assign any powers to the president-elect All pow ers of the presidency belong to George Bush. Obama does not have the power to declare war on anybody. He has no ability to assign troops, engage in peace talks or play any role in the ongoing conflict. So, the question shouldn't be what is Barack going to do or not what is he doing? The question should be, -what is President Bush doing or going to do. I am amazed at these so-called political experts who have as'signed the conflict to Obama even before he becomes president I find it fascinating that Obama is associated with this war moreso than the man who currently occupies the presidential office. Some news people are already criti cizing Obama for being on vacation in Hawaii at a time when all hell is breaking loose in the Middle East. The problem is in the Middle East. Heck, Obama would have no constitutional role if it was happening right here in the United States. Right now Barack Obama is an unemployed American citizen with the title of president-elect. In this writer's opinion, George W. Bush and not Barack Obama ought to act and speak on behalf of the United States. After all, George is the president until January 20, 2009 r-0 :II c )> en m z :::! z m r:m c r-r m ::! z "'C c m r-(j) ::J: m c In oavs,, -Obama Will Become OHicial m < m :::D -< -f c all of you Georg' e :: intori and 'Parliament fans out there, it's not time to officially call Washington, D.C.

African Americans have had their chests stu ck out since Barack Obama defeated Hillary Clinton. As a matter of fact, his train gained steam when he first entered the race. Never before in the history of politics has one man been so dynamic and captured the spirit and hopes of the American people. It's a shame that bigots, racists, and some Republicans continue to try to shake this man's character. m and pain of the country on his en lap as soon as he enters office.

Health News Gout PART II How Is Gout Diagnosed? Gout cannot be diagnosed simply from a blood test, because many people have elevated blood uric acid lev els but do not have gout. Rather, gout is diagnosed from the fluid of an inflamed joint. The fluid is observed under a microscope for uric acid crystals Fluid is removed through a needle during a procedure called arthrocentesis. Extracting the fluid not only aids in diagnosing the condi tion, but it may also reduce pressure within the joint, thereby reducing pain. If crystals are not found in the fluid, the diagnosis of gout cannot be made with certainty Occasionally, crys tals may not be seen the first time, but may be seen if additional fluid is removed during a subsequent attack. Since gout can cause chronic joint pain and involve other joints, it is extremely important that an accurate diagnosis be made so your doctor can prescribe the appropriate treatment. How Is Gout Treated? There is no cure for gout, but it can be treated and controlled. Symptoms ofte n are relieved within 24 hours after treatment has begun. The type of treatment pre scribed will depend on several factors, including the person's age, type of medications he or she is taking, ::rJ 6 )> overall health, medical history and severity of gout attacks. Gout is mainly treat ed with anti-inflammatory drugs uric acid level may cau s e an C'attack of gout. To prevent )> Medicine that lowers uric acid levels, such as allopurinol (Zyloprim) or probenecid (Benemid), also may be prescribed to help prevent a gout attack. Low doses of colchitine are also used to prevent attacks. These drugs are recommended for people who have had multiple attacks of gout, kidney stones due to uric acid, or tophi. The goal of lowering the blood uric acid is to slowly dissolve deposits of uric acid in the joint. attacks in people who are taking uric acid-lowering )> drugs, prednisone, colchicine or an NSAID is temporarily prescribed. N In addition, uric acid-low-g ering therapy (with allopuri-CD no! or probenecid) is not started during a gout attack, since sudden lowering of the uric acid can cause a new attack or prolong an existing one Sudden lowering of the Take Care Of Your Feet. ..

Johns Hopkins provide s nine pra ctic a l strategies Snor i n g occurs when the muscle that keep s open the a irways carrying a i r from the nose and throa t to the lungs r e laxes during slee p This c a u s e s the a irways t o colla p s e requiring mor e forc eful i nh a l a tion to b r e athe H ence, the nocturnal foghorn bla s ts 1 F low Z Soft P a l ate 4 B as e o f Tongue Adults generally start to snore in their late thirties and forties, and the incidence increases whe n the y p a ss the age of fifty. Snoring predominantly plagues adults but children between the ages of three and thir teen will snore when ,they have large tonsils and adenoids, or when they have a heavy cold. If snoring annoys your bedmate, try these techniques to stop it: Snoring Tip 1 -Avoid heavy meals and alcohol within three hours of bedtime Eating heavily and drinking a lcohol before turning in cause greater than normal relaxation of the throat muscles, and this may cause even a non-snorer to snore. Snoring Tip 2 -Avoid tranquilizers and antihistamines before bedtime Like alcohol most of these medications suppress neck muscle tone a nd can cause snoring Snoring Tip 3 Lose weight, if y ou are overweight. No one is certain why weight gain causes snoring It may be linked to increased fat in the structures around the throat, which diminishes the size of the air passages through which you breathe Snoring Tip 4 Avoid sleeping on your back. This position may lead to snoring because the tongue falls back and presses against the top of the airways It's preferable to sleep lying on your stomach or on your side However for heavy snorers, sleep position has no effect -they will snore in all positions Snoring Tip 5 Try the tennis ball treatment. At bedtime, strap on a fanny pack with a tennis ball in it and position it in the hollow of your back. tape a tennis ball to the back of your pajamas (A rolled up pair of socks will also do the trick.) Every time you roll over on your back, you 'll become uncom, f ortable a nd roll back on your side. Snoring Tip 6 -.Tilt the head of y our bed upward. Place telephone books or bricks under the legs at the head of th e bed This ma y help relieve chronic snoring . Snoring Tip 7 Seek treatment for allergies and upper respiratory problems that cause nasal obstruc tion Congestion due to allergies and colds cause the air passages to narrow. When air flows through a nar row airway it's more turbulent and causes the throat tissues to vibrate. Contact an allergy for testing and treatment If you have nasal cengestion due to a cold use a decongestant. Snoring Tip 8 Make sure there is a good flow of fresh air in the bedroom When tl}e room is hot and dry nasal passages become clogged during sleep, and this often leads to snoring. Keep your windows open and, if necessary, use a humidifier to keep your nasal passages moist -You really can get _extra benefits. .-MAP I MedicareCompletell CromSecureHorizons Some of our plans offer you more benefits than Original Medicare with monthly health plan premiums starting at $0.

Clark All Hit Milestones Pippen As Bulls' Coach Heading Into 200_ 9 Manning, Harrison, Clark INDIANAPOLIS -----Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison and Dallas Clark wasted no time _in hitting milestones sunday against Tennessee. -Manning extended his own NFL record for 4,000-yard seasons to nine, while Harrison moved into second on the NFL's career receptions list and Clark broke the franchise's long-standing single-season record-for yards receiving by a tight end. And they needed ,only about 23 minutes to complete trifecta. _ Manning entered the game needing 93 yards to_ hit_ 4,000, it' on a 55-yard touchdown play to Joseph Addai. The twotime league MVP left the game after the opening possession, finishing 7 -of-7 for 95 yards with one TD and a perfect 158.3 rating. He has failed to hit, 4,000 yards passing in only two of his 11 'NFL seasons 1998, his rookie year, and 2005, when he threw only 14 passes in the final two games and finished with 3,747 yards. Dan Marino ranks second all-tiine with six 4,000-yard seasons. Harrison, the recordsetting receiver, achieved another milestone midway through the second quarter. A short pass from Jim Sorgi gave Harrison his seventh of the game and 1,102 in his career. It moved him past Cris Carter for second all-time, leaving him behind only Jerry Rice, who holds the league record with 1,549 Crennel Fired After Browns' 4-Win Season ROMEO CRENNEL BEREA, Ohio --The Cleveland Browns fired coach Romeo Crennel following a 4"12 season.

Mangini Fired After 3 Seasons With Jets ERIC MANGINI PARK, NJ --Eric Mangini is out as head coach of the New York Jets a day after the team lost for the fourth time in five games and failed to make the playoffs. The. clincher was the Jets' 24-17 loss to Miami on Sunday that gave the Dolphins the AFC East title. "We don't take thisdecision lightly," Jets owner. Woody Johnson said at a Monday morning news conference. "We respect Eric for what he's done but we want to build on the successful foundation he has laid." Mangini, 37, was 23-26 in three seasons with the Jets, including 0-1 in the playoffs. Mike Singletary tackled the head coaching job of the San Francisco 49ers the way he wrapped up opposing running backs as a Hall of Fame linebacker. That effort will be reward ed. The team announced on Sunday that Singletary has been hired as the new coach, removing the interim he has had since Oct. 21. He gets a fouryear deal. MIKE SINGLETARY "Mike Singletary's leadership ability has galvanized the players and coaching staff to deliver improved results on the field," general manager Scot McCloughan said. "By turning the second half of the season around, he has accomplished what few interim head coaches have been able to do. 49ers to a 5-4 finish, including wins in four of their last five games. The Niners fired Mike Nolan after he went 18-37 in parts of four season!' and never made the playoffs. "After discussions with ownership, we agree that Mike has earned the head coach position. I look forward to working with Mike to continue to build on the momentum he has created as we prepare for -the 2009 season." "I find myself in the middle of something, feeling very fortunate to be surrounded by all of the good people around me," said Singletary, who somehow found time to change into a suit in the few minutes between Joe Nedney's game-ending field goal and president Jed York's announcement. "Now it's With Sunday's 27-24 win over the Washington Red skins on Sunday, Singletary guided the _just a matter of continuing to hype it up, continuing to move forward and keep our eyes on the vision that we have."

Pacing the sideline in a bright red jacket and cap, Edwards watched the Chiefs' season -perhaps, his days in charge of them .:...._ end with another dismal sho.wing. The Cincinnati Bengals completed their late-season surge with a 16-6 victory Suriday _that sent both struggling teams into an offseason of big decisions. The Chiefs (2-14) have more to make. The worst season in their 49-year history ended with another disjointed performance under Edwards, who urged the franchise to plunge headlong into a rebuilding mode. His rook ie-filled team has lost 23 of its past 25 games and has at least one major change ahead. General manager Carl Peterson is leaving after 20 years with Kansas City. His successor will have a say in whether the team replaces Edwards, who insists that the Chiefs' future isn't as glum as it looks and that he's planning to continue as though he'll be part of it. "It's absolutely business as usual," Edwards said. "I'll be in the office all week, and I'll be around. We'll evaluate our team and go from there."

Bucs' Williams Gets Good Diagnosis On Knee For a running back who couldn't seem to catch a break, the Tampa Bay Bucs' Carnell "Cadillac" Williams got some good news Monday on the left knee he injured in Sunday's season finale. From TampaBay.com: Williams suffered a torn patellar tendon Sunday, but this -time, the tendon tore away from the bone rather than rupturing. That, Williams said, requires a shorter recovery time and apparently is more easily repaired. The hope is he'll be back on the field in time to participate in training camp next year. Former Bucs receiver Mark Jones suffered a similar injury last season and returned to become the Panthers' leading kick and punt returner this fall. "If it's the way it's been explained, it's more like the CARNELL 'CADILlAC' WILLIAMS Mark Jones tear," Williams said; "After six to eight weeks, he was rolling. Right now, I'm just hoping for the best. I'll go ahead and have surgery and look forward to rehab." It was feared that Williams may have suffered a ruptured patellar tendon like he did last sea son in his right knee. That injury kept him off the field for nearly 14 months until his return in November. T.O. Backs Romo, Offers Cowboys Owner Advice DALLAS --Magnanimous guy that he is, Terrell Owens sent Tony Romo a text message yesterday telling him that no matter what happened against the Eagles, no matter how awful the quarterback played, he would shed tears for him again, the way he did last season after Romo stumbled against the New York Giants in the playeffs. Romo was indeed awful, unable to lead the talented Cowboys into the playoffs, or even into the end zone, as the Eagles humiliated them, 44-6, before a delighted crowd at Lincoln Fina ncial Field. "I just told him, no matter what, I'm still the same guy who shed tears for him at last year's press con ference, and I'd do it again, because that's the type of person I am, regardless of what anybody thinks or says about me," Owens said. T.O. 13aid he would be on board with whatever TERRELL OWNES changes the Cowboy:; make during the off-season. He even offer.ed to help owner Jerry Jones get things straightened out, if Jones asked him. Asked if the players supported the coaching staff, Owens said, "I'm not sure. All I know is, I want to win. I want to be put in a position to win. I think we have the pieces here to. get the job done. Whatever unfolds during the off-season has my full support.

Entertainment Woman SuSs Michael -Jackson For $1 Billion LOS ANGELES -Michael Jackson sang, "Billie Jean is not my lov e r ," in his massive 1983 hit, but a woman who she's Billie Jean Jackson claims otherwise. According to court documents obtained by Access Hollywood, Billie Jean Jackson, who is believed to be Lavon Powlis, claims she's married to Michael and is seeking joint custody of his youngest child, 6-year-old Blanket, whose birth name is Prince Michael II. The wom;m claims she is Blanket's birth mother. Billie Jean is suing the singer for 1 billion dollars "in support of Blanket." This is not Michael's first encounter with Billie Jean Jacks'on. In 1987, she filed a $150 million paternity lawsuit against the singer. She claimed Michael had fathered three,qfher children and would not pay child support. A rep for the pop singer at the time MICHAEL JACKSON called the claims "ridiculous and preposterous. The suit was dismissed (apparently, the kids were not his sons). In March of 2008, the 60-year-old was arrested by Santa Barbara County sheriffs deputies for trespassing on Michael's N everland R,anch in the Santa Ynez Valley. In the current lawsuit, the papers state that the complaint is filed "because she always is arrested at DiddyWants His. Own Biopic To Star 'Notorious' DIDDY Most rappers like to say their life is like a but Diddy -with a little help from video director Hype Williams, New York's finest and the media really did live out pis life for everyone to see in the '90s. But would the Bad Boy be interested 'in his own biopic coming to the big sc reen? Well, not exactly. : However, Diddy did say he would want Derek the actor who plays him in "Notorious," to tinue his r .ole as. Sean Combs should .. a Diddy biopic ever be made "Everybody always asked me wh o I wanted to play me if anyone ever played me, and I said Luke," Diddy told MTV News while on the set of "CSI: Miami," on which he'll be making an appearance in Feb '09. "So that's why I called [Derek) to -play me in 'Notorious:'" Diddy said he's a longtime fan of Luke's work, citing his roles in "Friday Night Lights" and "Antwone Fisher," "His ferociousness," he cited as Luke's prime attribute. "I felt like he could really represent me well." While Diddy hasn't quite put it out there that he's interested in a movie being made on his life, he hasn't put the idea to bed either. Luke, on the other hand, has been lobbying in interviews for the film to be green-lit. "I would love to play Puff from scratch," he told MTV News recently. "I would love to play him from start to finish. "It would. be a different portrayal," Luke added of the hypothetical project. "It would be a totally different energy if I played a fulllength Sean Combs pic-ture. the home of her husband, Michael J. Jackson.'' The lawsuit comes in a wave of bizarre and unset tling news for Michael. According to a report, a Jackson biographer claims Michael needs a lung transplant stemming from a rare genetic disorder, which has led to emphysema and gastrointestinal bleeding. He reportedly can barely speak and is nearly blind in his left eye. Jackson's camp has denied these reports. In addition to his legal and .health troubles, the singer continues to relocate. Michael has lived around the world, including the Middle East nation of Bahrain, but now he has reportedly settled .again in Southern California, this time in a wealthy Bel-Air neighborhood. It has been reported that he's renting a massive seven-bedroom, 13-bathroom mansion for $100,000 dollars a month.

BET, TV One Plan Extensive Inauguration Coverage NEW YORK-BET and TV One, the television net works aimed primarily at a black audience, haven't paid much attention to presidential inaugurations before. This time will be different. Both are planning extensive coverage for Jan. 20, when Barack Obama is sworn in as the nation's 44th president. While it will be followed as a news event, network executives said the-installation of the first black president will be as much a celebration as a story. "This is an opportunity to .. be the best we can be," said Stephen Hill, BET's gramming chief. "We see this as an opportunity to inform and inspire audience, which is wnat We always try to do." BET marked President George 'Y Bush's last inauguration with a news brief,. to say "Oh, it happened. What a shame," he said.

OL Prominent .African-American Artist To Speak At Polk Museum Of Art LAKELAND, FL. Rad,cliffe Bailey, one o f the most .prominent African-American artists working in the South, will be at Polk Museum of Art to talk about his artwork. A Conversation with Radcliffe Bailey will be held on Friday, January 9 at 6 p.m. ''This is going to be a very informal discussion," said Todd Behrens, Curator of Art.

"I spoke with Radcliffe about his work several times as we were preparing for this exhibition," said Behrens, "and he is inter-esting and brilliant, while being nice and approachable.
