We think we've seen it all! Talking about sour grapes, what a bunch of U.S. governors have recently done, certainly takes the cake. They said they were considering turning down their state' s share of one of the largest stimulus packages in the history of America. Have they indeed, lost their minds? Note that as of this publication, the so-called "Governor's Gang of Six" (consisting of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alaska, South Carolina and Idaho) had not completely cut off their Republican noses to spite America's first Black President's face. Not yet! They were still mulling whether or not to spit back Obama's aid package. "My concern," said Texas Gov. Rick Perry, "is there's going to be commitments attached to it that are a mile long." What?, Is he kidding? Certainly, there's been a commitment, such as if any state government is caught playing hanky-panky with federal funds, there will be hell-to-pay! To that, the Texas governor answers, "We need the freedom to pick and choose. And we need the freedom to say, 'No thanks." Well, Governor Perry, here's hoping that come future election time, you will give your state voters the same freedom, to pick and choose, and certainly, to tell you, "No, thank you!" Meanwhile, we must once again, applaud our own Republican Governor whose response to Obama's Stimulus Bill is positive, constructive and conciliatory. Indeed, Gov. Crist joins California Gov. Arriold Schwarzenegger and others in welcoming an opportunfty to put their state and their constituents back on fiscal feet. Like them, we too believe, we'll make it! Global warming: Faster Than We Thought New evidence indicates our planet is warming much faster than previously predicted. Take, for instance, the increase in the severe winter storms that swept across Arkansas, Kentucky and Ohio, several months ago. Add to that the fact that more than 1.3 million homes and businesses were buried under ice and went without electricity for weeks in what has been described as the worst winter in more than' a century. Scientists have determined greenhouse gases (methane and-carbon dioxide) concentrations are increasing in the atmosphere more rapidly than in the 1990's. It all adds up to a possible catastrophe that may well be ahead of schedule. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has recently foo.nd, "the Arctic sea is melting faster (even in winter) than before, threatening the ocean's delicate ecosystem." NASA researchers believe such melting is occurring at rates 10 to 15 times faster than the past two years. Also alarming are satellite images, which show ocean levels rising faster than ever before. Just recently, French officials expressed worry over a black mold attack on French prehistoric cave paintings, triggered by atmospheric change. In essence, our world is melting beneath our feet. What can we do it? Water Seeks Its Own level I admire President Barack Obama because he willingly accepted a job that would propel every decision he makes into the limelight. He voluntarily and energetically ventured into the lion s den to make America better for all Americans. An intellectual, President Obama has studied history and knows that the--only way to turn this country around is to implement programs that would provide employment, thus improving the life of the people In the eyes of the many Americans who are drowning in a sea of debt, President Obama is the lifeline, the one last chance to keep from going under! Then enters Rush Limbaugh, an infamous conservative Republican Entertainer .' Limbaugh has spewed his poisonous rhetoric for the past two years against President Obama. In March 2007, Limbaugh referred to then Senator Obama as a "Magic Negro_" Days before his swearing in ceremony, Limbaugh said, I don't need 400 words, I need four : I hope he fails." One might expect feathers to be ruffled by such a comment -:--and they were. Recently, Michael Steele, National Committee Chairman for the Republican Party said that Limbaugh's comments were "incendiary" and that Limbaugh was just an entertainer." But, two days later Steele stands before God and every body with his tail between his legs and APOLOGIZES! And, if that were not enough, Steele went so far as to call Limbaugh a national con servative leader." I'm confused! Why is Steele apologizing for telling the truth? And, as f,fl.L'-it. s Limbaugh being a "national leader," would Steele call the grand dragon of the KKK a na_ tional leader? After all, his views are conservative as well! Steele should never have apologized for telling the truth. But, then you have to have a backbone in order to stand up . Whether Limbaugh's followers realize it or not, IF OBAMA FAILS, THE COUNTRY FAILS! Limbaugh has carved out a very good living for himself making outlandish comments He has a loyal fol lowing of like-believers : But then, water seeks its own leveL Haiti: 1919 To Present oav A ctiv_e resistanc e to the Umted States' occu p ation of H a iti took place from 1919 through 1920, with a reported 3,250 to 15,000 Haitian casualties.

At at time, commercial agriculture failed to flourish because of the travel of a large number of.Haitians to Cuba as seasonal workers in the sugar industries of Cuba and the Dominican Republic, each year until1931.

The Anornev General And The C-Word! Eric Holder called somebody a coward. r d : i ,,Md the mead o,wlands of America exploded!

And we are sadly informed that hate groups in America have risen more than 50 percent. Meanwhile, a young intel lectual who claims she quite accidentally happens to be Black, advises Am. ericans to move past the idea of cele brating Black History Month, saying an understanding of the Black Experience is no longer of any consequence.

Originals' Leave Historic Building For more than 25 years, the Bossa Nova Beauty Shop building on the corner of Nebraska Avenue and Henderson was the home of Coop's Barber Shop. However, owner Edward Cooper, the last of the orig-inal tenants in the building relocated his shop. "There were some good times at Bossa Nova and plenty of money made, to God I give all the glory and praise. We must never forget the opportunity afforded to us by our time at Bossa Nova and the gift of two very inspiring women who gave so much to so many. The doors of Bossa Nova Beauty Shop were opened more than 25 years ago by Mrs. Betty Austin and Mrs. Catherine Farragut who relocated after the historic Central Avenue business district closed. Cooper said Mrs. Farragut created a barbershop in the building known as the Bossa Shop Connection and invited him to work out of the business. Barber Edward Cooper is shown inside Coop's Barber Shop, formerly located in the Bossa Nova Beauty Shop building on Nebraska Ave. "Those ladies gave a start to so many young stylists who -needed to advance in their careers. At one point, there were 22 stylists and one barber operating out of the shop. Many of Tampa's most successful hairstylists came from the salon," he said. Cooper said that after Mrs. Farragut died, her daughter gave him the opportunity of acquiring the shop four years ago.

The last eight years and the eight Reagan y ears should prove that large tax cuts for the wealthy do not stimulate the economy and that deregulation is awful for everybody, but the powerful and greedy. "The original GI bill created the largest middle class ever. It avoided high unemployment at the end of World War II, provided tons of money for Gls to go to school and guaranteed home and business loans. President Obama's Stimulus Package attempts to reduce unemployment by duplicating Roosevelt and Truman's feats by money a vailable to fix our crumbling infrastructure, for education in general, and college specifically through Pell Grants, Ru:fus Lewis said, "We prayed for and w e thank God for the Affirmative Action Programs.

"However, it is comforting to know that we have leadership in place with this Administration that truly recognizes both Rush Limbaugh's postering as well as those inclined to share his viewpoint for what its worth -ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!" Billy Wheeler said, "My first impression was that Limbaugh sounded manic -nearly on the verge of hysteria. I'm not convinced that his motives are pure. How can anyone who Claims to have the good of the nation at heart, wish for its leadership to fail? Even after the Palin VP nomination arid the Steele election as Chairman, the GOP's efforts to "change the face" of the party all seem contrived and scheming." "Republicans continue to circulate e-Vlails that disparage Blacks; they attack policies to address past social injustice, and they put forward financial strategies designed to benefit the rich. Older white males still dominate their conventions; last September in St. Paul, only 36 of the 2,380 delegates were Black. Rush Limbaugh and his type just seem extremely out of touch with reality and out of step with the times." Attorney Clinton Paris said, "Rush Limbaugh is nothing but a radio entertainer, not a serious political commentator trying to engage in constructive public discourse for the benefit of the country. Since his beginning in the 1980s, he has provided political comedy relief over the airways, "His comments and opinions have little merit and do not warrant serious consideration; however, there are people willing to embrace Rush Limbaugh because they, too, want the President to fail." "This is not a surprise, but just a reminder that the biggest threat to the country's future and security remains the mindset of the American people. We cannot allow negative rhetoric and hate-mongering such as that froin Rush Limbaugh or any other naysayer to distract us from the serious work needed to move America towards future prosperity." Les Miller, Jr., said, "The mr,:il!J should be, 'Who's run-ning the I Republican Party?' The elected Chair ridiculed R u s h Limbaugh, but then he had to apologize?" "The President of the United States is trying.-to turn the country around. When you look at history during the Great Depression, putting money into the economy is what happened. President Obama believes that if the government puts money into the economy it will turn things around and it's already starting to work. "Regardless of what conservatives like Limbaugh say, the majority of the people appreciate what President Obama is doing for this country and believe he is doing the right thing."

Religious Hvmn-0-Rama Revised At MI. Olive AME Church ROBERT WRIGHT BY GWENDOLYN HAYES Sentinel Editor Robert Wright, a longtime member of Mt. Olive AME Church in West Tampa, recalls the Hymn-0-Ramas that were spearheaded by Frank and Ernestine C. Odom. For more than 20 years, the events were held the third Sunday in August with Mr. and Mrs. Odom, both of whom are now deceased, as coordinators. As a matter of fact, just before her death the first Sund in August, 1g94. Mrs. Odom had just put the finishing touches on the program for that year. The 20th, and what Mr. Odom said was the final year of the event was August; 2003. He died in late August, 2004. Having missed the spirituality that event brought, Wright wanted to revise the service. "I talked with the family, who were sort of reluctant at first, but then went ahead and agreed," he explained. He went ahead and planned a program for 2008 and afterwards, "the family was glad that I did. Our pas tor was excited about it and he says we won't let it die. Now, I want the community to know about it. FRANKODOM The Frank and Ernestine C. Odom Memorial Hymn-0-Rama will be held Sunday, March 8th, 4 p. m in the new Mt Olive AME Church, 1902 W LaSalle St. Reverend James C. Givins is the pas tor. "I called on many of those same people that Mr. Odom used and they were elated to be a part of the program. Many of them are now gone, however," Wright said. Some of those who will be a part of Sunday s program are : Geraldine McLean, Bernard King, Dr. Shirley Harvey and her husband, ERNESTINE C. ODOM Edwin Harvey, Ralph Williams, Elder Qarland Phillips, Letia Colbert, Cheryl Diane Brown, Camilla Daughrity, Ramona Shuler, Carey Jones (who is coming out of retirement for this), Beverly Brown, Terry Bradley of St. Petersburg; and Barbara Hicks. Some of the participants are history readers and others sing the hymns. According to Wright, "the program will conclude as it always did with the Odom family singing "It Is Well With My Soul ." MT.

But, Mr. Rodriguez may have a bigger problem than his steroid use. Alex has a cyst on his left hip. Is the cyst related to his admitted steroid use? Even worse is the question, is the cyst cancerous? How will this cyst affect the future career of Alex and his chase to break Barry Bonds' career homerun record? Speaking Of Steroids Major League Baseball has become bombarded with rumors of admission t.o and accusations of steroid use by players . It is a problem that baseball should solve. Baseball can do this with a off of steroids and get them out of their system. Then teams should have their team members tested periodically Any player testing positive for use of steroids should be punished with both an unpaid suspen sion and a fine.

Coast Guard Suspends Search For Three Missing Boaters CLEARWATER -The U.S. Coast Guard's threeday search for two NFL players and a third man sent adrift in chilly seas has ended in futility, dashing hopes they might be found after rescuers plucked one survivor from the Gulf of Mexico. Crews combed more than 24,000 miles of ocean before calling off their search Tuesday for Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, freeagent defensive lineman Corey Smith and former South Florida player William Bleakley. They had been missing since Saturday when their boat capsized during a fishing trip. On Monday, crews did rescue Bleakley's former South Florida teammate, 24-year-old Nick Schuyler, who managed to stay with the 21-foot boat. But Coast Guard Capt. Timothy Close said if there were any other survivors, they would have been found "The families understood that we put in a tremendous effort," Close said. "Any search and rescue case we have to stop is dis appointing." Searchers spotted no signs of the men except for a cooler and a life jacket 16 miles southeast of the boat. Still, family members of Cooper maintained hope at a Tuesday night prayer vigil that he might turn up. "Even if he goes on, he's with the Lord," said Cooper's grandmother, Zelma Davis. "But we have hope we're going to keep him." Bleakley's father said he thought Coast Guard rescuers did everything they could, adding he had lower expectations after only one survivor was found Monday. "They were not to be found," Robert Bleakley said. Scott Miller, a friend of the college teammates, said Schuyler told him that a chopper shone a light directly above them the first night. Schuyler also told him he even saw lights beaming from ashore. It was Bleakley who : swam u:r;1derneath to retrieve three life jackets he could find, along with a cushion, a groggy Schuyler told Miller from a Tampa hospital. Bleakley used the cushion and the other Corey Smith, an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State, spent the past three seasons with the Detroit Lions. Mr. Cooper said his son Marquis was an avid fisherman. men wore the jackets, Miller said. But the waves were powerful, and after Cooper and Smith were separated from the boat, the college teammates tried to hang on. "He said basically that Will helped him keep going," Schuyler told Miller; who said he had known Bleakley since the sixth grade. "The waves Tampa Bay drafted Marquis Cooper in the third round in 2004. He spent his first two seasons there, then changed teams six times in three seasons. WILL BLEAKLEY were just so much. They never got a break." Family and friends embraced and sobbed outside the Coast Guard station shortly before the announcement. They left without talking with reporters.

Sports Ex-Giant Ward Signs With Bucs DERRICK WARD TAMPA--The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, retooling offensively after missing the playoffs, signed free agent running back Derrick Ward to a four-year, $17 million contract Tuesday. The former New York Giants backup for 1,025 yards and two touchdowns in 2008 while sharing playing time with Brandon Jacobs, who also gained over 1,000 yards. The Bucs cleared room in the backfield for the 28-. year-old when they released Warrick Dunn last week. In fiv e pro seasons, Ward has rushed for 1 750 yards and five TDs. He also has 69 receptions for 576 yards and one TD . Tampa Bay entered the free agent signl.ng period about $61 million beneath the salary cap after cutting Dunn, linebackers Derrick Brooks. and Cato June and receivers Ike Hilliard and Joey Galloway. Under new coach Raheem Morris, the club has made improving the offense a priority. The Bucs placed the franchise tag on receiver Antonio Bryant, assu.ring him a $9.88 million salary next season, and last weekend re-signed free agent receiver Michael Clayton to a five-year deal worth up to $26 million lions Sign Free-Agent DT Jackson, CB Buchanon GRADY JACKSON And PHILLIP BUCHANON ALLEN PARK, Mich.-The Detroit Lions signed unrestricted free-agent defensive tackle Grady Jackson to a three-year contract and free-agent corner back Phillip Buchanon to a two-year deal Wednesday The 345-pound Jackson played most of the past three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. He was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the sixth round ( 193rd overaJ.l) in 1997 and also has played for New Orleans, Green Bay and Jacksonville. 2008, Jackson started 15 games and had 23 tackles (21 solo) and two sacks for the Falcons. Jackson was on a list of players accused of using a diuretic, which can serve as a masking agent for steroids, but was not suspended. Some players said the banned substance Bumetanide was not listed as an ingredient in StarCaps, an over-thecounter weight-loss pill. Jackson filed suit against StarCaps in Alameda County Superior Court in California in November, seeking restitution for any lost salary and damages for "false advertising and unfair business practices." Jackson also was involved in an uncomfortabl e scenario with the Falcons in 2007, when then-coach Bobby Petrino cut him in midsea son, alienating many of the other players. Jackson wound up with Jacksonville, and when Petrino resigned to take the h ead coaching job at Arkansas after 13 games, Jackson said: "It just shows his true color, like a coward with a yellow stripe down his back." When Mike Smith was hired as coach of the Falcons, Jackson was re. signed. Buchanon, 28, started all 16 games for Tampa Bay last season, intercepting two passes and returning one for a touchdown The Lions had only one interception by a defensive back in 2008. A first-round draft pick by the Raiders in 2002, when Oakland lost in the Super Bowl to Tampa Bay, Buchanon started 36 g!HRQ& for the Raiders He struggled in coverage, though he had 11 interceptions, and was traded to Houston in April 2005 for two draft picks After two seasons with the Texans, Buchanon signed with the Bucs as a free agent in 2007. Giants GM: Plaxico Can ComeBack PLAXICO BURRESS EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -Plaxico Burress could be welcomed back by the New York Giants -if the Super Bowl star can straighten out his legal problems stemming from a weapons charge and get his life back in order. "Right now he is still a Giant and if things work out and he's on board with what we want coming back, we'd love to have him back," gener al manager Jerry Reese said Tuesday. Burress' future is cloudy because he faces an illegal weapons possession charge relating to a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a New York City nightclub in late November. He faces amandatory 3 -1/2 years in prison if convicted. Barring a plea deal, the case is scheduled to return to court at the end of the month. Coon Documents: McAllister Owes S&.&M DUECE MCALLISTER JACKSON, Miss. -Forme r New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAUister has filed for bankruptcy protection for a car dealership .he owns in Mississippi The free agent running back is in a dispute with Nissan's financing arm. Nissan says McAllister owes more than $6.6 million and nearly $300,000 in interest. The company says McAllister defaulted on a deal, then exceeded his credit line. McAllister said Tuesday he filed for bankruptcy to protect his inventory and is searching for an investor.. The 2001 first-round draft pick was ieleased by the Saints in a salary cap move last month and is now looking for a new team. He was due $7 million next season. Cowhovs Reportedlv Release owens IRVING, TX --Terrell Owens' days in Dallas are done, according to ESPN ESPN cited anonymous sources Wednesday night in saying that the Cowboys have decided to cut the receiver, ridding them of a big locker-room distraction but also absorbing a big hit on their salary cap. The team did not immediately have a comment. Just a few weeks ago, Cowboys owner Jerry' Jones indicateq that T.O. was staying when he said, "You and I both know that the one that you're asking about all the time, ifl gave you the answer that you want to hear, then you would've already had it. So the fact you don't have it ought to tell you something. It really should." Jones seemed to enjoy the publicity Owens stirred up as much as the TERRELL OWENS touchdowns he scored. However, there were several in-house issues involving Owens that may have ultimately prompted Jones to decide the receiver wasn't worth the trouble he caused. Owens will count about $9 million against the cap. His absence means one less high-profile player to open the Cowboys; new, $1.1 bil lion stadium, and fewer No. 81 jerseys to sell.

Sports Ravens Agree To Deals With Lewis, Former Vikings Center Birk RAYLWEIS And MATI BIRK OWINGS MILLS, Md. -The Baltimore Ravens brought back a famous J?i-o Bowl player and added another one, too. Linebacker Ray Lewis will finish his career with the Ravens after reaching agreement on a three-year deal with Baltimore, which also agreed with center Matt Birk on Wednesday. "From beginning to end as a Raven .... Wow!" To be with the same team with the same fans for an entire career, that doesn't happen in the NFL," Lewis said after concluding negotiations on a deal worth nearly $22 million. "I don't think an athlete can have a greater legacy than to be able to stay in one place for an entire career." By keeping Lewis, the Ravens fill the void created at inside linebacker when Bart Scott signed with the New York J e ts. "We got better today. Our football team got better. I am very happy," general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "This will allow Ray to fin ish his career as a Raven Birk, 32, replaces last year's starting center, Jason Brown, who signed a fiveyear, $37.5 million contract with the St. Louis Rams "To add a player like Matt, who will also give us outstanding leaders hip, makes us a bette r team," coach John Harbaugh said. "We're not standing pat. We 're moving forward and getting better." Lewis earned his lOth Pro Bowl this season after lead ing the NFL's second-rariked defense with 160 tackles He also had 3-1/2 sacks, three interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Lewis has been the dominant linebacker of his gener ation, an emotional leader in the locker room and a tackling machine on the field. Lewis, a first-round draft pick in 1996, was voted NF L Defensive Player of the Year in 2000, the season the Ravens won the Super Bowl, and in 2003. Judue_oenies Eller Release while Appeal Pursued CARL ELLER MINNEAPOLIS Former' Minnesota Vikings great Carl Eller will not be released from a county. wprkhouse whAe lle appeals his misdemeanor convic-tions for driving under the influence and assault. Hennepin County District Judge Dan Mabley ruled Tuesday that the 67-year-. old Eller must continue serving his 60-day sentence even as his lawyers pursue the appeal. Mabley says Eller has not shown remorse or taken responsibility for his crimes. Eller was convicted last .week. Mabley's sentence exceeded the sentence requested by prosecutors. The judge said he was trying to send a message after claiming that Eller had called police and the court corrupt and : biased. Titans Sign washington, Have To Multivear Deals NATE WASHINTON AndJOVANHAYE NASHVILLE, Tenn. -After losing All-Pro Albert Haynesworth to a recordsetting contract last week, the Tennessee Titans dipp ed into the free agent market for two players. The Titans signed Pittsburgh Steelers freeagent receiver Nate Washington to a six-year deal on Monday, and added furmer Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Jovan Haye with a four-year deal. The 25-year-old Washington, who caught 40 passes for 631 yards for the Steelers last year, will be counted to replace Brandon Jones, who left for San Francisco as a free agent, and start along side holdover Justin Gage. Haye is returning home in a sense, having played college football in Nashville at Vanderbilt University. He spent the past three years with Tampa Bay where his best season came in 2007 with six sacks and 68 tackles Imprisoned Wile Of Slain NFL Plaver Released FRED LANE And DIEDRE LANE RALEIGH, NC --The North Carolina woman con victed of fatally shooting former Carolina Panthers running back Fred Lane has been released from prison. The 33-year-old Lane served about six years in prison for voluntary manslaughter in the 2000 death o( her estranged husband. Fred Lane played with the Panthers for three years and had been traded to the Indianapolis Colts before his death. During her trial in 2003, prosecutors described Lane as_ an abusive woman who killed her husband for insurance money. Defense attorneys described a battered wife who killed in self defense. Benuals Reach Agreement With Ex-Jets WR Coles CINCINNATI --All the Cincinnati Bengals needed was one day to replace their top receiver. The Bengals agreed to a four-year deal with former Jets receiver Laveranues Coles on Wednesday, a day after_ T.J. Houshmandzadeh left for Seattle as a free agent and suggested that Cindnnati wasn't sincere about trying to keep him around. Coles got the opposite impression. "The Bengals were very aggressive right from the start in talking to us," Coles said, in a statement released by the team. "And when a team makes you feel really wanted, that's a factor you're not going to ignore They said, 'Let's get this worked out,' and we did." The Jets let the 31-year old receiver leave as a free agent last week, restructuring his contract to make it LA VERANEUS COLES easier. Coles had another year left on his deal, but wanted a multiyear extension. As part of a compromise, he became an unrestricted free agent and the team didn't have to pay $6 million that was guaranteed him this season. ESPN reported that the deal with Cincinnati was worth $28 million, another indication of how badly the Bengals wanted him. Coles also visited Buffalo last week. Shaq Blasts Magic coach Van Gundv MIAMI --Shaquille O'Neal flopped against Orlando center Dwight Howard. Now he's standing up to Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. Responding to Van Gundy's reaction about O'Neal's tactics against Howard on Tuesday night, the Phoenix center lashed out at his former coach with the Miami Heat, calling him "a master of panic," a "nobody" and "a frontrun-ner." "One thing I really despise is a frontrunner,'' O'Neal said before the Suns played the Heat, Shaq's first time back in Miami since last season's trade. "I know for a fact he's a master of panic and when it gets time for his team to go into the postseason and do certain things, he will let them down because of his panic. I've been there before. I've played for him." O'Neal was guarding Howard with about 4 minutes left in the third quarter Tuesday night. Howard made a spin move, O'Neal ', ... ,, fell to the court in an effort to get an offensive foul called, and the Magic center easily dunked with two hands. Afterward, Van Gundy said he was "shocked, seriously. I was shocked and Shaquille O'Neal didn't hold back when asked about Stan Van Gundy on Wednesday. very disappointed because he knows what it's like. You know, let's stand up and play like men, and I think our-guy did that." O'Neal, who typically does not talk before Suns games, didn't hold back when asked for his reaction. He played for Van Gundy in Miami for parts of two seasons and openly com.: plained about coaching decisions in the 2005 Eastern Conference finals; when the Heat lost. Game 7 at home to the Detroit Pistons. "Flopping is plajing like that your whole career," O'Neal said: "I was trying to take a charge, trying to get a call. Yeah, it probably was a flop, but flopping is wrong. Flopping would describe his coaching."

PETERSBURG -Two young men were arrested and are facing several charges after a drug deal turned into an attempted robbery. Four St. Petersburg police officers are currently under investigation in connection with the incident that included a high-speed chase, two accidents, and shots being fired. According to police, on Tuesday, shortly after 1 p. m., two undercover detectives met two men in the Wal-Mart parking lot at 3501 34th Street, South. The detectives are said to have met Antwart Marquis Britt, 21, and Christopher Jerome Toliver, 20, to make a drug transaction. Police said undercover officers had allegedly purchased drugs from Toliver during a previous transaction. At some point during the transaction, Britt is alleged to have brandished a semi-automatic 9mm handgun and robbed one of the undercover officers. The officer -turned-victim and another undercover officer are said to have intentionally fired shots at the suspects, but no one was hit. Britt allegedly drove the dark blue Suzuki Forenza out of the parking lot as they fled the scene. Toliver and an unidentified witness 'were passengers in the vehi cle, police said. Two undercover vehicles pursued the suspects as they traveled through Lakewood Estates. At some point, Officer Stephen Mathews, 24, who was off duty, but driving a marked take-home vehicle heard the police radio transmissions about the robbery and drove toward Dr. M. L. King Street, South to provide assistance to the other units. Officer Mathews reportedly observed the dark-col-CHRISTOPHER JEROME TOLIVER ored SUV with two undercover officers were exiting the subdivision on to Country Club Way, South and believed that they were the suspects. He is said to have deliberately drove the front of his vehicle into the driver's side door of the SUV in an effort to stop it. The SUV flipped and rolled over once. Officer Mathews and the two undercover officers in the SUV were treated for minor injuries and released. Meanwhile the vehicle in which the suspect were traveling in was observed turning northbound on Dr. M. L. King Street, South and then east on Bayou Blvd. South. Patrol Officer Barry Books, 39, pulled behind the vehicle and intentionally drove the front of his cruiser into the rear of the Suzuki as it 'TI r-0 ::0 en m z -1 z m r:al c: r rm :::! z c: CD r-c;; ::J: m c m < m -1 c: m en c )> z c slowed to turn in the road.

Religious Who's Your Shepherd; live life today are a lot of temptations We live a life of freedom and limitless opportunities. The drawback of this lifestyle is that there is a great possibility that we will sin and stray away from the path of right eousness. Therefore we all find ourselves in need of a shepherd. This week's lesson in Ezekiel 34:23-31 teaches us about the importance of a shepherd and gives us the best choice for a shepherd. In this lesson, God informs the children of Israel that He their own glory and fame. The shepherds appointed by God have a responsibility toward the care of the Master's sheep. Likewise the sheep of the fold of God are not to mistreat one another. The strong sheep must not chase away or. take advantage of the weak sheep. This message is also fit ting to those who are in the world and of the world who have chosen worldly leaders. Worldly leaders do what is best for them. They do not really consider what is best for the sheep. will give them a new shep-. T).1e behavior of the shep, herds and the sheep cause's G9d to establish new shepherds. Regardless of the situ ation God offers to give them a new shepherd and be their herd (vs. 23). For too long the people have been shepherdless and had to fend for themselves -The who were supposed to take care of the sheep were looking out for themselves. In addition to being neglected by the shepherds the sheep were mistreating each other. This is what happens to sheep when shepherds are self-centered and seek after God (vs. 24). God desires to make that His sheep are well taken care of and prop erly nurtured. -There are blessings of having God as your God and having a shepherd called by God. As sheep of God, He promises a life of peace pro tection, and provision (vs. New St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church 1006 South 50th Street *Tampa, Florida 33619 813-242-6268 Sunday Morning Church School @ 9:30 M ,-,sunday Morning 11:00 A.'_ M ; Thursday -Night Youth Bible 6:30 P.M. Night Prayer Meeting & @ 7:00P.M. 25). When you decide to make your choic e and come into His sheepfold, He assures you that you will have pe a ce There will b e peace in your lif e because He has made an agreement with you. Wh e n you make Him your choice, He promises to fight for you. As you live with Him He will make sure that the evil beast that lives among you will flee. God will drive out whatever it is in your life that is causing you sleepless nights Whatever it is that is causing you to be stressed and without rest, God will drive it away fi:.om you-. : The further benefit of God being your shepherd is He will let there be showers of blessings in your life (vs. 26). He lets it be known that everything will happen in its season. The sheep does not have to stress about what things may look like because God is going to send showers to bless the field in its sea son You will have showers of blessings. Blessings will fall and water the ground around you Regardless of where you go the fruit of blessings will be in the l i md. God provides for His sheep far and wide His sheep are continuously blessed. Everything that is supposed to yield will yield its "TI :c c harvest. Blessed and fruitful -are the trees. Blessed and productive is the field There :c shall be no shortage of bless-ing in the life of His sheep. Whenever they are in need it N will be there. o 0 The people of God must u:> know that God loves and cares for them The people of God must know that God is not going to sit by and watch them be taken advantage of by self-centered shepherds and abusive sheep God be .your she'pberd. Do you have a shepherd? Let God be your Shepherd. He will give you peace; He witl provfde for you; and He will protect you The Lord is my Shepherd! Who s yours?

If you think adding massage to your lifestyle sounds too good to be true let's look at how and why it works: High Anxiety = Heavy Anxiety Tension and stress lead di rectly to weight Stress produces the cortisol hor mone. Cortisol, besides caus ing major damage to tissue and nerves when stored up, a l so signals the production of insulin TLC For Your Muscles The touch and pressure of massage s timul a t es blood flow and m ay help b oos t your m e tabolism. You c a n actually feel your body temper a ture rise during a massage And we all know what a higher metabo lism can do for keeping weight off Not only that, but the con tact loosens your muscles, which helps with muscle tone and appearance. WhY Happy People Are Happy We all know people whose life can only be described sim ply as happy Fittingly, nature rewards these happy-go-lucky types : Being optimistic in the middle age years increases life span by at least 7.5 years even after accounting for age, gender, socioeconomic status and physical health. What's behind their P,ardiness: They minimize the destructive ef fects of stress. Here are four habits that longevity experts say are at the heart of a sunny disposition and that you can adopt, too 1. THEY WORK THEIR CELL PHONEs. People who socialize at least once aweek are more likely to live longer, keep their brains sharp, and prevent heart attacks. One reason: Just talking on the phone to a friend has the im mediate effect of lowering your blood pressure and corti sol levels Research shows that having good long-term rela tionships provides as many physical benefits as being ac tive or a nonsmoker 2. THEY EXPRESS GRATITUDE (WITHIN REASON). People who write about all the things they are thankful for are optimistic about the upcoming week and more satisfied overall with their lives. They also feel phys"ically stronger It's hard 1o be bitter and mad when you're feeling grateful. But don't overdo it. Find the frequency that works for you giving thanks shouldn't feel like a chore. 3 THEY'RE RANDOMLY KIND. Do you perform five acts of kindness in any given day? That's the number of good deeds that boosts your sense of well-being and happi ness. Your karmic acts can be minor and unplanned--giving up your seat on the bus; buy ing an extra latte to give to a coworker You'll find that the payback greatly exceeds the effort You see how much you're appreciated and liked by others 4 THEY REAPPRAISE THEIR LIVES. Set aside a little time each week to write about or record or even just mentally revisit an important event in your past Reflecting on the experience can reshape your perception of it, as well as your expectations for the future. When creating this "life review," you g_et to list all your accomplishments an instant self-esteem booster Organize your historical review by epochs: your post:..college years, early marriage, career, motherhood Subdivide each section into triumphs, mis steps, and lessons for the fu ture It's helpful to look at the b a d times as well as the good. brick. by brick, block by block, callous hand by callous hand .. together ordinary people can do extraordinary things PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA Do You Want To Share Your Story?

Chris Brown: Still Kino Of The Promil CHRIS BROWN LOS ANGELES -Chris BroWn has been banned by radio stations, suspended by Wrigley gum and not exact ly asked back for a second frosty glass by the "Got Milk?" campaign. But even as the R&B star's career crumbles under the weight of an ongoing police investigation into his alleged attack on girlfriend Rihanna, Brown can take a measure of comfort in the calendar: Prom season is coming DJs and a prom-planning expert say Brown's music is still spinning at school dances this winter, and like ly will be in rotation come the spring's tuxedo-andgown affairs.

'Hammer Time' To Focus on Familv, Business MCHAMMER WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. --Viewers of MC Hammer's new reality TV show shouldn't expect to see him lounging around the house in baggy pants. The 1990s rap music sensation says "Hammer Time" will give viewers a glimpse of his 16-hour days a s a businessman, computer geek, proud father and husband. The show will air on cable's A&E, starting as early as May. The show will follow Hammer, his wife of 23 years, five children and two nephews -aged three to 21 -who live in their Oakland, Calif., area home He said the show would have many funny moments but wouldn' t be scripted, "which actually makes it a better show." Hammer, 46, said viewers might -be surprised to learn his business and technological savvy, including his attempts to build what he calls a social media empire. He helped found the media Web site dancejam.com, has unveiled a new iPhone application and frequently tweets on Twitter. Hammer, who was born Stanley Burrell, said his children have their own talents that will b e showcased.

'The of Our Comnwnitv -. foi.ltse/f' Tvra Banks savs Scqrs, Anitude Are Part Of 'Top Model' Beautv LOS ANGELES -Tyra Banks, with a lively rush of words, describ e s a photo session featured in the season debut of "America's Next Top Model." In the shoot dubbed "Return to Innocence," the CW reality series' aspiring models are depicted playing "games that young girls played back in the day dodge-ball, jacks, doubledutch jump-rope," Banks said. But the 13 women are posed to look anything but pure. "There's a girl smoking. A girl from the wrong side of good," Banks said. It's part of the TV producer and talk-show host's campaign against what she considers pop culture's harmful mes sages for girls. Banks said she created "America's Next Top Model," back with a twohour episode at 8 p;m EST Wednesday, to counter stereotypes of who and what is considered beautiful. The show has included minorities and women dubbed "plus-size" by the fashion industry. Banks, who also leads the show's judging panel, TYRABANKS challenged convention herself as one of the few African-American supermodels. This time around on "Top Model," one contestant bears scars on her body from an accidental scalding she suffered as a child and refuses to hide the marks. Another has startlingly large, mesmerizing eyes. A third is a street preacher. Banks is ready to push industry boundaries on the show's next season, due in September. Women on the comparatively short side will be the focus: Nobody over 5-foot-7 need apply for the $hot at a modeling contract. Open tryouts are ahead this month in cities including New York, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles. 50 Cent's 'Before I Sell Destruct' Gets Pushed Back Again Apparently Interscope Records three-headed monster has changed the order of its lineup again.
