Features Activist Disputes Storv About lnvolvement With Former Election Supervisor Community activist, business owner, and clergy, Michelle B. Patty, has gone on record in an exclusive interview saying an article printed in the March 11th edition of the St. Petersburg Times is very inaccurate. The article implied that Mrs. Patty was paid $16,000 by Buddy Johnson for work she did during his campaign to remain as Supervisor of Elections. Mrs. Patty said that's not what happened. "First, I never worked for Buddy Johnson, the candidate. I worked for the Superviso; Of Elections Office. I was paid through my company. "The No Match, No Vote issue had the Black community enraged during elections last year, and that's why I got involved. People all over the country were. upset. People were also upset about not being able to wear Barack Obama tee-shirts to the polls. If they did, they were turned away." Mrs. Patty said she has never appeared on anyone's talk show talking about Buddy Johnson. "I was at Middleton in August 2008 talking to some people with my Obama tee-shirt on. I had driven to the College Hill Library to offer people rides to the polls who couldn't get to Middleton. I was approached by a reporter who asked me some questions about the confusion with the precincts. "In October 2008, Buddy Johnson's office was contacted so we could discuss concerns of African American vote-rs involving their ) .votes sup-pressed .:it L .. ; "For m ore thaxr years, I've 'sp'oken" l bb.t on the records of prospective candidates. There had also been proble;ms with previous electiohs," and we wanted to make 'sure that didn't happen again. Buddy Johnson didn't contact me We contacted him and h e put us in. touch with Katherine Harris to address our concerns about the 'No Match, No Vote' issue. We passed out flyers and held voter education registration rallies. I. would never allow any information on candidates to be posted at a registration rally. Buddy Johnson's job was to get the correct informa-ELDER MICHELLE B. PATrY tion out to the people." Mrs. Patty said she. thinks it's sour grapes from the people who didn't vote for Barack Obama to attack her on this issue without first researching the facts. "This was a hatchet job. They (the St. Petersburg Times) are trying to attack my character, and I will challenge anyone who tries to do that. "Why was I singled out when others made hundreds of thousands of dollars, but their faces didn't appear. in the paper? Why are we, as Black people, always held under .suspicion?" Mrs. Patty said she's never any controversy or negative issues concern ing her work. "I'm proud of my work to help put B.arack Obama in office "I also must address the issue of the shrimp dinner I allegedly gavea woman. That was also inaccurate A woman working at the polls : 'said she was hungry and been fed 'with tlie other worker s I reached into my 'pocket and gave her money' to get so.metJ;ling to eat. I never purchased food :and gave.'l.t, to her. 1 didn't 'knoyv ,this arid.,I made no exception 'in case as everyone else was .eating Cuban sandwiches : '. I nevergave anyone money the day before the election, and I think-they (the St. P ete r sburg Times) have twisted the facts in search of a story that's not there. They are out to seek and destroy anyone that speaks out against the sys tem. There are some real issues out there that ne e d to be addressed." Reporter Leon B.

Parents are standing up and fighting for their children's education. Next week (March 18th), Parent Teacher and Student members (PTSA), as well as, interested observers will converge on Tallahassee, in a show of strength a na advocacy before Gov. Charlie Crist a:nd -the Florida Legislature. Protesting state budget cuts to education, PTSA will be urging the Governor and legislators to place the education of Florida's children as a priority in the state's 2009-2010 budget. We support their efforts and urge as many of our readers who are parents, guardians of children in public schools or interested citizens to support PTSA's efforts. Thus far, neither Gov. Crist nor the Legislature is willing to touch the myriad of sales tax exemptions and corporate tax loopholes, which could easily add an additional $8 billion to Florida's budget. And, our Legislature continues to drag its feet regarding the Seminole Indian Tribes gambling agreement, which has already been negotiated with Gov. Crist, and could readily hand at least $300 million to the state's cashstrapped annual budgef. Meanwhile our continue to be asked to ''domore with less." However, parents are finally standing up to say, "Enough! We're ;not going. t,o it, more!" And "It's abouftime!" --. Now, this is 'rhat you can do.

President Obama Keeps His Word No doubt, History will applaud Pres. B arack Obama for taking a leadership role in stimulating international climate efforts. Also, as he promised during his campaign, Obama has taken a hard line on America's environmental policies (previously not by the Bush administration) and has designated $27.5 billion of the latest stimulus cle_ani)lg up, our country and energy,sources. He has also-charged Todd Stern; Obaina's chief climate negotiator, with hammering out a new international climate treaty designed to reduce carbon dioxide .emissiopsgl;)ba .lly: .. : \, .,--. -1 if .. pie previous treaty, known as the Kyqto signed in 1997 by 37 countries. America wasn't one of them simply because the treaty 'allowed china' to be exempt from mandatory reduced emission levels. ADd because America ignored the_ treaty, many other countries ignored the treaty, as well. ' Here at home, Obama's stimulus package includes $5 billion for low-income home weatherization funds; '$6 billion in energy efficiency grants for state and: local governments, $11 billion for upgrading the electricity grid to transmit' electricity more efficiently. The package includes $2 billion for electric car research and development, as well as .$500 million for retraining American workers for new jobs In the energy and environ-. c( ment fields ..:t That the production tax credit for businesses engaged W in the Wind energy industry received a three-year extenCJ sion in the package is heartening news, especially for California, a state that gets at least two percent of its Nothing Is Sate From ThlfChopping Block It appears that the econ omy is sparing nothing as it continues to spiral downward. In the latest turn of events, the television show, "Sesame StreetJ" is reducing its staff. On Thursday the company that produces the show said 67 of their 355 member s taff positions are slated for the chopping block. This translates into 20% of their staff being laid off. The company known as the Sesame Workshop produces the show. It also produces the show, Electric Company," which was pop ular during the 1970s. The fact that thi$ show is experienCing financial problems speaks volumes. Its inception came about as part of a study grant and the show was never intended for broadcast. The late Jim Henson created several Muppets that included Elmo; Big Bi .. d, Soloman Grundy, Kerll\It the Frog; Grover, Bhfl, Bert, Ernie; Monster, and Alice Braithwaite Goodyshoes. The show i:nade its debut on November 10, 1969. For 40 years, these characters, who ha' ve outlived their creator, hav e entertained and educated yom-lgsters from the crib to kindergarten:. They were used as a method of combin ing education and entertain. ment to teach shapes, colors, problem solving, acceptance, life skills, social skills, arid other characteristics essential to development of young minds Even if some youngsters were too old to watch the show, chances are there were younger siblings in the house. So, it is hard to imag ine that today's children may lose the experience of watch ing "Sesame Street" during their formative years. ; It's still too early to determine if any of the actual Muppets will be pulled from the show, but it's a possibility. But, this is just a sign of the times. If there is not enough money to operate the show, then it's better to reduce the staff than to can cel the show, itself. This just goes to show that nothing is safe from the chopping block. Avuba Suleiman Diallo!

The Rumbling 01 A Coming Storml rpbis isn't new. As a mat-1 of fact, it happened, back in 2005. It was a horror-story told by a fifth grade teacher who like countless other teachers was preparing her students to take what had become a synonym for dread and possible failure, better known as FCAT. You know the story. Filled with agony, assumptions, false starts and dubious endings, it winds around a crooked stick of measure begun during the George W. and Jeb Bush nineties, that was supposed to secure and strengthen America's sagging public education scene. Part of a forlner president's Leave "No Child Left Behind" program, FCAT -Florida-'s Comprehensive Assessment Test entered into the public education arena like a big foot in a mud-pudd)e, splattering accusation and confusion on everyone, but mostiy on teachers and their students However, thanks to sympathetic media coverage and blindness from a public hungry for any kind of good newl? it could get from public schools, FCAT despite its horrendous shortcomings was welcomed as a breath of fresh air! Said the fifth grade teacher, who would -remain anonymous for good reason "Our district did not supply any test preparation materials for FCAT. So, we were told what materials we could use. Each teacher donated reams of paper for the FCAT tion activities. A joke was even made that we were teaching the test, which in fa,ct the very definition of tE:a ching the test is a riculum aligned to the test." The teacher added, While preparing for FCAT, we didn't have time for such things as independent reading. Everyone, including myself, stopped what they were doing 1;;tpd did what we were told. Frankly, I cannot imagine a ,, -school that as a policy does not have time for independent reading. How am I now going to build the interest and sta:mina of students for a love of boo.ks if WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR INDEPENDENT READING?" The teacher concluded, she neither thought FCAT was good or bad. But her fear and opposition to the practice was borne out in what it made school systems sink to and caused school principals and teachers to become ... drill instructors and enforcers rather than motivators and mentors Don t take my word for it. any public school cu_rrently gearing up for FCAT. Ask the principal what grade ( A "-F.'') the school possesses. After brief discus sion, you'll probably get the feeling that the outcome of each FCAT test is as much an issue of a school's mainte-. nance of a good grade as it is the measure of a student's comp -; ehension If you're like me, you'll leave the school with a personal sense that FCAT isn't about learning. It's about competing. It's about LOOKING GOOD in its strictest political sense! How much longer can Florida_schools stand FCAT? Students have already begun to rebel. They call it "dropping out!" When w_ill teachers and administrators begin to rebel? Or will the thing merel y continue until, like all putrid meat ; it simply rots and turns to dust?

JJ 0 :: )> -JJ ("') ::I: A Black caucus In Name Onlv I don't know about the City Of Tampa and Hillsborough County, but I celebrated when the Black elected officials met and organized a local Black Caucus. All the Black elected folks in the city and county were and are a part of the organization. I expected some good things from this organization Apparently, the formation of this organization was no more than a photo opportu nity. To this writer's knowledge, there has been no other meeting besides the first one designed to orga nize. They elected officers, shook hands and went sepa rate ways. I can't help but wonder what is their agenda? How do they plan to relate to the Black community? I am well aware that the 2009 Legislative Session has start ed and two ofthe members are temporarily stationed in Tallahassee. But that is no excuse. From the day they orga nized to the time of the legislative session, they had time to put something on the table There are those of us who will not forget that the Black Caucus exists in theo ry. Likewise, there are those of us who expect some lead ership from this group. I certainly hope that as soon as the legislative ses sion is over, the caucus will meet with citizens and together come up with a common agenda that will uplift and make-the Black community better. If the Black local caucus isn't going to work together on some issues that affect Black people, there is no need for the organization. I know that the Black elected offici!lls know that there is strength iri unity. Black elected officials can be more effective working together. In_ the State Legislature there are more caucuses. You have the Cuban Caucus, the Women Caucus, and the Black Caucus, among others The weakest and the least effective caucus is the Black Caucus. The reason being it is difficult to get the caucus members to work together. It is even difficult to get all of them to attend a caucus meeting. The local caucus needs to learn a lesson from the State Black Caucus. The lesson to be learned is to be a better organization. Put aside indi vidual egos and work collec tively. People represented by the members of the Black Caucus need to give caucus members Arthenj' a Joyner, Betty Reed, Kevin White, Thomas Scott, Gwen Miller and Doretha Edgecomb, more time to outline some plans and directions for caucus leadership. Give them more time for action, but dou't for get about them.

I s ee no reason w h y th e agreement should be amended. I've received no correspondenc e from TSA on this issue I have received a letter from the YMCA on this issue, and they have assured me they want to help area youth. Because it was the only place African Americans could go for and the golf course was shaped and built by African American caddies who' worked at Palma Ceia when they could not play there with whites. Rogers Park is a place of special. interest to the' African American ty The CWSKRPP wants the history of Rogers Park preserved. Rogers Park is publicly owned and the CWSKRPP believes it should remain accessible to all citi zens. The CWSKRPP been meeting with the Tampa Sports Authority and YMCA, and both have concurred the agreement is defective The YMCA has written letters stating new terms that better clarify their intent The City of Tampa Attorne y con firmed the YMCA' s letters are not binding. The agreement would need to be amended to make the YMCA s intent binding.

The Nil's Most Valuable Plaver Who is the Most Valuable Player in the National Basketball Association? The answer dep .ends upon who you ask. The player put forward as the MVP vary, but. the same three players do not change. Ask most any one and you will get the names in alphabetical order, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The MVP in the NBA surely rests among one of those three. The top scorer in the league is Dwyane Wade, followed by LeBron James and then Kobe Bryant. Less than one percentage point separates the three in the scoring race. All three are almost unstoppable in scoring. They play excellent defense, they are excellent passers and very good rebounders. C In this writer's opinion, ii LeBron James separates "-himself from the other two because he is the better c( defender, the better passer, the better rebounder and the best at getting to the bucket Q en and scoring. . So, the MVP is still up for 1-grabs between LeBron, (1: Dwyane and: Kobe. USF Needs Two w C The University of South Florida basketball team's en record for last season is a :::::i long way from being one to !;g brag about. All that 'can D.. z ..J ..J ::) ID ...:. w z i= z w en g a: g I.L change next season. The Bulls have a solid nucleus returning for next season. But they need two players to become a winning team. From somewhere, the Bulls need to come up with a dominating center who can score inside, rebound on both ends of the floor and be able to intimidate shooters inside. Then they must have a smart and talented point guard. The guard needs to be able to shoot outside, penetrate with the ball and find the open man. Okay Coach Heath, go out and find those two guys and turn the team into con sistent winners and a power house basketball team. All-Star Event Is Tonight Tonight (Friday) at 6 p. m., the annual United Negro College Fund (UNCF) fundraiser will take place at Jefferson High School. This will be the 23rd such event. County schools will be divid ed into girls and boys east and west squads. A number of senior boys and girls basketball players will partici pate. In addition to the boys and girls game, both the girls and the boys will have a three-point shootout. The boys will have a slam dunk contest. The game is a tribute to the ailing Dr. Sam Horton, the founder of the All-Star event.

But, within weeks, he was in negotiations and has signed a 4-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be coming to Tampa. I fell in love with the city when I visited it. I'm happy to be here and I'm looking forward to making big things happen on the team and in the community," Ward said. The 28-year-old former New York Giants player said he has been assigned the #28, formerly worn by two-time Buccaneer Warrick Dunn. Ward will start with the Bucs on March 16th. He is coming to the hometown of his friend, the Giants' Kay Jay Harris. A native of Los Angeles, Ward attended Fresno State and transferred to Ottawa College during his senior year.

The el d e rs who direct th e affairs of th e church w e ll are worth of' doubl e honor, es p eci ally tho se whose work is preaching and teaching. I Timothy 5 : 17 Many great things happened in 1952. The cure for tuberculosis was celebrated, newly elected President Eisenhower promised to end. the war, and Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable" hit the top of the popular music charts. Also unforgettable to Mr. Albert and Mrs. Eddye Gallmon was the birth of their oldest son, Albert Gallmon, Jr., on March 1, 1952. On that date 2009, that son celebrated his 57th birthday, as well as his first official day of work as the new Pastor of Peace Progressive M. B. Church, Tampa: 'A Double Honor.' Rev. Gallmon and his wife, Mrs. Wilma Gallmon were greeted with a standing ovation from over 120 guests in the banquet room at a local restaurant, as they were escorted in by one of the organizers, Jamie Wilburn. "It is wonderful to see the church family I just left, meet my new church family. It seemed like a providential encounter and I pray that it is only the beginning of a great fellowship between churches," said Pastor Gallmon. Formerly, Director of Ministries and Assistant to the Pastor of Bible-Based Fellowship Church, where he served for about one year just after relocating from Minnesota, Rev. Gallmon. was elated to see such a great crowd of old and new friends. "Peace Progressive would not miss the opportunity to celebrate our new Pastor," said Ms. Sheila Sanders, an officer of Peace Rev. Gallmon expressed his gratitude for the love that has been extended to him and his family the second they walked into the doors oftheir new church home. In an open mic format, the Gallmons enjoyed testimony after testimony of how Rev. and Mrs. Gallmon blessed the lives of others through their friendship and leadership. Through songs rendered by friend, Richard Newton and "niece," Natalie Jones, Rev. Gallmon was reminded to "roll back the curtains of his life" and remember to "keep giving God the best that he's got." The hostess encouraged the audience to participate in a competition for the best 'Rev. AI Gallmon imitation.'. It is a well-known fact that this passionate, inspirational preacher often accentuates his messages with distinctive movements of his tall, slender. frame when the Spirit is high Best imitation award went to 10-year-old Breanna Vieux, who obviously has paid attention in service Rev. Gallmon ministers to both old and young, as evidenced by the span of age groups in attendance. "Peace Progressive will be kllown by our Christian LL behavior, love for all people, and our praise and worship," Rev. Gallmon stated in his first sermon. "Through praise and worship, not condemnation and C criticism, we will win the hearts of the community.''

So far, not such an interesting story. But when Harry broke free, he didn't visit his mother, see his sweetheart or make a run for it. No, he went down the street to a Snappy Foods, stole 14 packs of cigarettes and then sneaked back into the lock up, police said. Jackson, who was being N incarcerated on forgery, identity fraud, possession jf of cocaine with intent to HARRY JACKSON sell, obstruction of an offi cer and traffic charges, now has an escape charge, too.

Religious Many people mess up new opportunities because they go into new places with the same attitude, mentality, and spirit. As God gives you a new chance you must allow God to wash you of your unclean past and put a new spirit in you ANew Chance Because 01 Him God will give you a new chance in spite of you. He gives you a new chance to demonstrate the power of His name. Instead of chastising them, He blessed them. It is sometimes easy to hurt and get even. But it shows power and -forgive and do tl1aiwl1ich 'is' good. name is an Important part of a person's life. It is extremely important to have a good name. Not only must the name be good, but the reputation must be good as well. God has a good name and the reputation to accom pany it. Because His name and reputation are good, He does whatever He needs to do to maintain its goodness. This week's lesson teaches what happens in the lives of the people of God when God acts to protect His name. In the book of Ezekiel the story is told of how God restores and protects His name among a peo ple who have sinned and gone astray. God gives the people a new opportunity. He gives them a new chance at a better life. The reason for this newness is not because the people neces sarily deserve it. God says, "I . do this not for your sakes, but for my own," (vs. God said they have brought shame to His name in the land in which they live among the heathens. They have disgraced Him. Think ab out the days of old when you acted up or "showed out" and embar rassed your parents. Back in the day families the family name. You were riot going to bri1,1g embarrassment upon the.family. It is important for tlie people of God to know and understand that many of the blessings they have were not b.ow they what of -.... ,.:-..-;' His name s sake : : .Jle makes known the awesomeness of His name "l))r His people. To His love and desire for His people to live better lives and to bring honor to His name, God relocates His people. God has decided to bring the people out from among those who walk contrary to His will (vs. 24). God will take them to their own land. He further shows how great He is by washing them when they get there and by giving them a new heart and n_ewspirit. God does not just .. w,ant to put His people in a new place;. but He wants to be able to walk upright in the new place. He does however say to them that they shall remember their own evil ways (vs. 31). They shall look down upon themselves for all the things they have done. God allows them to remember how they 'treated betrayed, and embarrassed Him in a new place. This serves notice to the people of God today that as you live a blessed life, remember the evil deeds of your past; knowing that in spite of them all God still blessed you. You are blessed because God chose to bless you. It was not about you or because of you, but it is about Him. God bestows a newness, upon His people for His own name sake ........... Mt. Zion A. E.

Health News Which vaccines DO You Need;t Chances are, when you hit adulthood, yo u figured that you were pretty much done with vaccines, except for the occasional flu shot. But it's time to r oll up your sleeve. Experts say th e right vacci nes can prevent pain and mis ery -and could even save your life. Tdap Booster: Prevents whooping cough, diphtheria, and tetanus MMR: Prevents mumps, measles, and rubella in adults, mumps can be serious: 1 in 20 women develop swelling of the ovaries; 1 in 5 men, inflamma tion of the testes. Rarely, adult mumps can cause potentially de adly encephalitis (an infec tion of the brain). If you were born between 1957 and 1967. you're particu larly susceptible to catching mumps, because the version of the vaccine your pediatri cian gave you wasn't effective enough to provide reliable life long protection. Flu Vaccine: Prevents flu-and potentially deadly pneumonia. G e t it When You Turn 6o Zostavax: Pr events s hin gles and po s th e rpeti c n e ural gia On e in four peop l e who ha ve had chickenpox eventually d e ve l ops the blistering r as h of shingles--caused when the chickenpox virus, Varicella zos t e r, i s r eac tivated Around 40% will go on to suffer what's been described as the wors t kind of pain imaginable. Called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), it is so agonizing that it's be e n known to lead some people to suicide. You've never had chicken pox? Then definitely get the chickenpox vaccine, Varivax, as well. Adult chickenpox has a substantially higher risk of complications, such as pneumonia and potentially deadly encephalitis. Medical Symptoms To Beware 01 Her e a re 6 medical symptoms you should keep in mind: 1. If you have unexplained weight loss and/or lo ss of ap petite, you may have a serious underlying medical illness. 2 Slurred speech, paralysis, tingling, burning pains numbness, and confu sion are signs of a stroke, and you should get to an appropri ate emergency center immedi ately. Early treatment, may prev ent permanent damage to the brain or even save your life. 3-Black, tarry stools may in dicate a hemorrhage from an ulcer of the stomach or the small intestine. It is important to s top the bleeding and to rule out cancer as a cause. 4-A headache accompanied by a stiff neck and fever is an indicator of a serious infection called meningitis. 5-A sudden, agonizing headache, more severe than any you have felt before, could mean you are bleeding in the brain . Go to an emergency room A brain a n e urysm is rare, but it can happ e n -even in peop l e under 40. It can be very disas trous if it's not treated If you have a severe, crushing head ac he you may hav e an a n eurysm, which is a blood filled pouch bulging out from a weak spot in th e wall of a brain artery If treated before it bursts it could save your life . 6a. For women: Vagina l bleeding after menopaus e is a warning s ign of possible can cer 6b. For men: A lump in your testicle with or without a small lump in the groin could be seri ous Testicular cancer is more commonl y found in t esticles that did not naturally descend from th e abdomen to th e scrotum .. brick by brick, block by block, callous hand by callous hand together ordinary people can do extraordinary things ...

I don't care what his plea is". Next week, Oprah will dedicate a show to spousal abuse.

The rapper says he won't release his "Before I S elf Destruct" CD until Eminem's album -tentatively titled -sees the light of day. "Right now I'm on a train, and the Em-choo-choo-car go,es first.

While Eminem's CD' is expected this year, :no release date has been set! But it's not the first time 50 has pushed back his album. The CD was expected to come out last December, but was dela.}led. Back then, 50 said because elements of it weren't complete, so he set a March release date. Right now, Eminem's got the most buzz musically. His first single, "Crach a Bottle," which features 50 Cent and Dr. Dre, hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart earlier this month. I Rihanna's Father Wailing For Her To Call RIHANNA BRIDGETOWN, BARBA DOS --Rihanna's father is reporte dl y waiting for her to tell him about the alleged attack by R&B singer Chris Brown. Ronald Fenty is the father of the Barbados native. The Barbados Nation News says Fenty is disturbed by reports of last month's altercation. The Sunday newspaper quotes Fenty as saying, "all I have been seeing is the Internet reports. I am waiting on her to call me." Fenty also complained that tabloids have been misquoting him. A Los Angeles police affi davit alleges that on Feb. 8, Brown punched, bit and choked Rihanna until she nearly lost consciousness. Brown's arrest prompted a retreat into secrecy for the singers. He has been charged with two felonies. Rihanna, 21, is known for "Umbrella" and other hits. Just days after Chris Brown was charged with assaulting and threatening a woman widely reported to be his girlfriend Rihanna, she is back to work with her producer, Adonis Shropshire . "She's doing OK," her pro ducer, Shropshire, told HipHollywood.com. "I mean, of course (with) the situation, she's all right." Shropshire went on to explain that Rihanna is using her music as a means to try to move forward "You have to remember, she's still a kid," Shropshire said of the 21year-old. "With anybody in the world that goes through something, you have to bring yourself out of it. So I guess her refuge is her music, of course, as it should be. "Of course, there's still remnants of whatever from time to time," he continued "But she's definitely trying to move forward." Brown is back to business as usual, too. His MySpace page has a message to his fans asking them to vote for him in the Kids Choice Awards. Brown i s nominated in the ca t ego ri es for Favorite Male .Singer and Favorite Male Song. Th e only pos s ibl e nod to hi s l ega l situation is the closing of the post, which says simply "thank you for your support." "TT :::c 0 Will Chris Brown's CareerRecoverv Plan Workil }< )> :::C (") :X: Just when you thought things were cooling off in the Chris Brown and Rihanna saga, there has been yet another development. The Chicago-Sun Times reports that Brown and his fellow pop superstar girlfriend, Rihanna, may have worked out an agreement, supposedly entitled "Project Mea Culpa." The Latin phrase translates to "my fault," often used when someone wants to take responsibility for something they've done wrong. The agreement includes a promise by Brown to pay Rihanna $10 million dollars if another assault occurs, as well as a book deal and a joint TV appearance tour, obviously geared to repair Brown's badly damaged public image.
