HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Tuesday, March 31st will be the last opportunity that patrons of an East Tampa business will have the oppmtunity to visit for sev eral weeks. Big John's Alabama Barbecue is closing its doors for the expansion of the N 40th Street Widening Project. Forty years ago, the late Rev. John Stephens had a vision that he could offer his own ver sion of barbecue to the commu nity He opened the doors of Big John' s Alabama Barbecue in 1968 at 5705 N 40th Street The business grew and threw the yea rs, the business grew and de v eloped a following from throughout the county However at the end of this month, the business will close its doors until a new building is con structed next door to its current location "The road widening is taking the entire building. We are going to be closed about three months, but we are coming back bigger and better, Ms. Jabessa Stephens Major said. She stated that her mother Stephens' widow), Mrs. Sallie B. Stephens, who is now 82 years old, is the primary owner of the business and th e children are all shareholders. Rev. Stephens, w ho was the father of 10 chiltiren, operate d !; u the busines s until his death in 1994. However, having the fore sight to ensure that his legacy re mained after his life came to an end, he a lso prepared and trained his children to follow in his foot steps. The business continues to be operated by his children and his grandchildren. Mrs. Stephens also owns the land adjacent to the bu s iness and that is where th e new building will be constructed. "We just want to thank our cus tomers for 40 years of support and we realize that we are blessed to hav e such good and faithful customers," Ms. Stephens Major said. In addition to operating the business, Rev. Stephens a lso founded First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gard e ns. H e served as pastor of both that church and Mount Olive Baptist Church of Bradley Junction for 21 years Throughout the years, Rev. Stephens' offspring have opened and closed barbecue businesses such as barbecue es t ab lishm e nt s as First Choice, Georgia Boys, and Campbell's Barbecue in various loc a tion s throughout the city.

Columns Cleaning Up Somebodv-Eise's Mess When comedian D. L. Hughley made his comment about then Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama, most people thought D. L. was either crazy or suicidal. In essence, the comedian said, "I hope Obama doesn't win the presidential election." His audience gasped. Then he explained, "because if Obama wins. then that means he's gonna be blamed for all the things that white boys messed up, in the first place (Hughley's words, not mine). And as far as I'm con cerned, white boys messed it up, and they aught to be the ones to clean it up!" Nervously, D. L's audience rose to the punch line and laughed. No doubt, here late ly they realize what D. L. meant. Everywhere we look, we see a pile of manure. AIG is stinking to the high heavens! Indeed, things have gotten so bad a crusty old senator from Iowa approached his colleagues and soundingever-so-rnuch like movie star Jimmy Stewart when he star,red in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," suggested that the CEO ofAIG should commit hara-kiri .(that's Japanese suicide, y'all)! Former vice _president Dick Cheney has arisen from the dead and proclaimed undying love for radio's Nosferatu himself, better known as Rush "I Hope He Fails" Limbaugh. And the ragged beat goes on! Meanwhile, newly invested Pres. Barack Obama has done, in a matter of 30 days, what his predecessor was or unwilling to do in more than 30 months. Such spring cleaning in the White House has no doubt not been seen i10r done since "Give'em Hell" Harry Truman took over as Chief Executive and the effete elite bit their nails to the quick. Yet, with all the new President has accomplished and is preparing to accomplish, there seems to be a knot in the fthroat of Capitol Hill. I spoke about it, last week. I sliall speak about it now, arid eve r y week until either news print goes out of style or papers go out of print. There seems to be an unde niable reluctance on the part of a pronounced American leadership -many of them Republicans, but not all of them to see a Black-led Presidential cabinet do what a previous cabinet was unable or unwilling to do ... to save America from itself and to rescue the world from fiscal, political and philosophical insanity. Call Barack Obama "Black Super Man" if you want to! Say all manner of unsavory things against what this man has said, tirelessly and forthrightly. But the one thing that cannot be said about the Obama adminis tration is that it speaks from both sides of its mouth Like JFK, FDR and even Harry Truman before him, it is evident that what Barack Obama says, HE MEANS! And Washington, D C. is scared stiff! We are not surprised that Dick Cheney has come out of the closet with his love jones for Rush Limbaugh, just as we are not overlyshocked to realize how horri fied certain elements of American leadership would be/ will be when Obama suc ceeds (and he WILL succeed) But what tickles us is how close a so-called TV-comedi an came to nailing the truth about the mess on Capitol Hill and who was responsible for putting it there. But there is one thing D. L. Hughley obviously has forgotten This isn't the first time a Black man has had to clean up afterAmerica. As someone said, long ago In order to lead, you must first know how to serve!" Black American Insight continued from page 4-A into the interior of the conti nent. This means our ances tors could have come from a variety of ethnic groups, which I will share with you next time. Meanwhile, don't. let anyone tell you that Barack Obama's election means we should stop teaching our children or talking about slavery. Though it is not our complete heritage, slavery is part of our history, no mat ter how painful it may be to Blacks or shameful to whites. Harambee! we Fall Down, But we Get Up Gospel singer, Rev. Donnie McClurkin recorded a popularsong, 'We Fall Down, But We Get Up.' That song very appropriately defines the sit uation the United States finds itself in today The country as a whole has fallen down. Today our coun try has literally fallen down and the economy is so bad it has knocked millions of Americans to their knees. But this is nothing new to America We have been down before and we h ave endured hard times. On every occa sion, we have gotten up and prospered. Check the record books for the Great Depression of 1929. The stock market crashed, and the economy went into the tank. It was certainly a blow that caused Americans to fall down But Americans got up and moved ahead to a boom ing economy. We can all remember the terrorist attack of 9-11 It was a sneak attack that caught Americans b y surprise and left them stunned, confused and knocked to their knees. We mourned the dead tried to figure out what had happened to us when we got up, brushed ourselves off and once again moved ahead. Yes, we, in America, fall down, but we get up I could go on and name some other events where we fell down, but got up, but you get the point. Today, we face another one of these situations. It is one where naysayers are saying we will never get up again. We are now living in a time when Americans are saying that all our efforts to get up seem to be heading in the wrong direction and all the things that we are doing are doomed to fail. Never in our history have so many of us been so negative in our belief that it is only a matter 6f time before we stand to our feet and roar down the road of success. Arllericans must remember the saying that you have to spend money in order to make money. The current administration is doing two things. It is spending money to make money and to put money into circulation. Any economy with a lot of money circulating is one that will be successful. These are times when Americans must believe that we can get up and recover. We need to be optimistic and spread optimism all across ;!! this land. This is not the time 0 for politics Too many people are really experiencing hard times. So my fellow Americans, do not despair in spite of the difficulties of the moment. I can't say when, but this country will rise again from the deep dark hole we have fallen into. Again, we fall down, but we get up. :!! c )> CJ) m z ::! z m r I tD c r r m ::! z "D c tD r u; X m 0 m < m :::c -< c m CJ) c )> Who's Calling The Shotsil The las t time I checked the President of the United states was Barack Obama. So, why are people like Rush Limbaugh, and his Republican media service, directing the country and what needs to be done for blue-collw pe ople? . Every time you turn on the television and listen to politi cal analysts, you hear people what needs and should be done to help unem ployed people and blue-col lar workers. Yet, none of these people have a vote in Congress or identify with either of those groups. What we do have are elect ed officials and community groups. They are the people we d e p e nd on to let our voic es be heard, and get things done that can improve all of our l i ves That effort is impeded by th e hypocracy that exists in the media and in society. Rush Limbaugh, armed z with his First Amendment first African American presi-c right, is allowed to spew dent, and that in itself needs "T1 rhetoric that's offensive, bigto be recognized as in(iication :::C oted, and racist. However, of just how far we've come in when African American race -< activists like Rev.

Her daughter, Deborah Denise Clark, was strangled to death in her apartment. This Sunday, March 22nd, Ms. Helms will host a Lov e Fest" in honor of her d aughter. "Since I started having these every year since 2006, it has h e lped us cope with Deborah's death. Deborah was full off life and had a smile that could light up even t h e darkest room. Her heart was full of gold and she would help anyone in need." The "Love Fest" will consist of family and friends reminiscing and sharing laughter of how Deborah loved to eat and loved people, danced when she ate food. "The family will start out by gathering at Deborah's grave site to put fresh flow ers on her grave. Later, we will gather, look at photos of Deborah and laugh as we try to do the dance steps she enjoyed so much. "We had a special treat last year when Deborah's grandmother from Georgia came. On February 4, 2009, Jesus called her home, and she'll be missed this year." Ms. Helms said if you let Jesus lead you through your trials and tribulations; you can make it. "You also need to have the power of forgiveness. I'm glad Jesus gave me the strength to face the young man that took her life. I just wanted to tell him face-to-face, I forgive him." Ms. Helms said she lost touch with a lot of Deborah's friends, and prays they will read this article and attend the event. Contact Ms. Helms at (813) 231-2513 for more information about the event.

H e talked with his f ather, Lee, Sr., about attending hi s sc hool 's prom, and wondered what it would be like. He loved to dance, and was r eally looking forward to the event. What Lee, Jr. didn't plan on was an accident during hi s junior year. While riding his bicycle, Lee, Jr. was struck by a car. The accident left him a quadriplegic, and forced him to use a mouthpiece to con trol his wheelchair. For months, Lee, Jr. was involved in rehabilitative e fforts in Tampa and Miami before he was released to return to his family. Subsequent health problems forced Lee, Jr. into a center in Dunedin where he eventually returned to school at Tarpon Springs High School. They had a full-time nurse there, and it was a good fit for him. Family members said Lee, Jr., despite his injuries, still wanted to attend his school prom, and thanks to his LEE COWARD, JR. family and some classmates, did attend and was the first person to hit the dance floor. Lee, Jr. told family members his dreams and goals were still alive, and he wanted to attend college and study psychiatry. Last Tuesday, Lee, Jr.'s journey came to an end when his health problems became fatal. He passed away while in the care of the Fletcher Rehabilitation Center. Lee, Sr. said watching his son go from good to bad was painful. "He was pretty blessed to overcome the obstacles he had to go through. He was a strong young man and accepted his condition, kept his head up, and his mother, Tyna, was at his side from day one despite having to endure her own struggles. This is very tragic for all of u s." Lee, Sr. said h e wants the world to know his son was a good kid and although he didn't have much, he gave love to everyone he met. "Before the accident, he told me he wanted to be a good running back, and he loved to do flips. He was very athletic. Through it all, he did attend college, and received a certification in computer technology. "His main dream was to be a psychiatrist. At least, that was part of his dream.

No More Violence Rallv Against Homicide Announced In 2004, Mrs. Darla Saunders was brought the worst news any parent could receive. She was told that her son, Isaiah "Iceman" Brooks, had been murdered not far. from his home. Even more painful for her were the circumstances surrounding her son's death and the way he was found After the death of her son, Mrs. Saunders and her husband, Elliott, decided to put together a support group for other parents who had lost their children to violence. ELLIOIT AND DARLA SAUNDERS That group, Advocates For Safer Communities, had brought together several fami li es in the area w ho are still waiting for the killer of their children to be brought to justice. It was alsoinstru- mental in getting the Tampa. Police Department to establish a Cold Case Squad. I must say that Detective Eric Houston has been helpful to all of u s, and constantly maintains contact with us when h e gets n ew information. " We need the support of law enforcement to get justic e for our children. There's no other way. Mrs. Brooks has planned a "No More Violence Rally Against Homicide .

'' I know som p'arents may feel the person who kitled their child will never be caught. We don't feel that way, and we do whatever we can to make sure the person or persons responsible know 'we haven't forgotten and will never forget "It's important that the media works with us to keep hope alive and to rattle the guilty ones into confessing their sins."

King High School's Basketball Team Completes Historic Season The King High School Basketball Team (front row, L-R): Adrian Federick, Rethell Oliver, Anthony Ratcliffe, and Chauncey Day.

Coach Marvin Somerset, Asst. coach Steven Torkelson, Head Coach Sam Lanier, Asst. Coach Rashard Thurston and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick. As college teams prepare for the 65-team tournament toward naming a national champion, locall y we have a high school team that made history. The King High School basketball team finished their season 23-7, the most wins in the history of the school. They also won 21 games in a row and allowed less than 50 points a game this season. That was also a record . Head basketball coach, Sam Lanier, said he is very proud of his guys, and although they fell short of a state championship, the team did bring the school its first regional title. "These guys really played well and I'm very proud of them. I've been at King for six years, and it's gratifying t o see these guys become so successful." "With their AAU, Spring League and Fall League programs, and all the work they put in during the off season, I saw something special." Coach Lanier had 5 seniors on this year's team, 3 of them starters. Tables, Cbln & Tents lvaiiMIII Clowns Avallallll "I feel good about our chances next year. We'll continue to work hard. We need them to contin u e to b e unselfish in their play." I think we were a better defensive team this year, and that's why we had such a successful year." Coach Lanier said next year, he will have two guards and a forward returning from this year's team, and they will be looked upon as leaders. "My son, Stephen, will be a senior next year, and I'll expect him to step up. We have others we1l expect to step up as well as we expect to repeat this year's success and takej t a step further by winning a state title." Looking back, Coach Lanier said two years ago, they won 12 games, and last year, they finished the season 15-8 "Each year we improved and the kids played well together and got along great off the court."

God Said It And He Did It Sometimes in life it se .erris as though we are wasting away. Situations come up and that causes us to grow weary and lose heart.

Not only do we as people experience these things, but_ there are some things around us that suffer as well. There are some relationships that are dead or dying.

Golf Tournament Helps Fulfill Educational Dreams Golf experts and novices alike can help college bound students turn educational dreams into reality with a single stroke. On Saturday, April 4, 2009, New Salem M. B Church will be hosting its Third Annual Golf Tournament at Rocky Point Golf Course. Registration and a continental breakfast will start at 7 a. m., followed by a shot gun start at 8 a. m Family fun and community spirit will last all day. Tournament Chairperson, Bobby R. Hamilton says that the New Salem Schol arship Fund is part of the church's commitment to helping young people succeed. The scholarship fund provides financial solutions and educational opportunities for college bound students. Last year scholarships were awarded to seven students. Tracy Melendez's daughter, Contessa Cleveland was one such r ec ipient. It's no secret th .at the cost of a four year degree is escalating. Contessa is currently majoring in nursing at Florida A&M University Mrs. Melendez says that the financial scholarship that Contessa received was a blessing that made a big dif fere nce, e spe cially with help ing to pay for text books and other incidentals. Mr. Hamilton says that major sponsorship has been difficult to find and donations are sparse because o the economy. Despite these challenges, h e stands by New Salem's belief that the future of our communities and country lies wifh our youth and the continuous promotion of higher education. Ham}lton also quote's Winston Chur,,chill, We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." That is why we are reaching out to our local community friends, business es, golfers, and patrons for help and support A silent auction will also l.Je held throughout the day.

Recipes From TONIA TURN E R Shrimp are a source of omega-3 fatty acids that can improve cardiovascular health and lower the incidence of heart disease and stroke. They even deliver impressive amounts of vitamin D. Avocados provide nearly 20 essential vitamins and minerals: potassium, 'folic acid and other B-vitamins, vitamins E and K. They also contain phytonutrients, believed to help prevent many chronic diseases. They act as a 'nutrient booster' by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha-and beta-carotene as well as lutein and vitamins A, D, K and E. 2 fully ripened avocados from Mexico, halved and pitted & 1 cup peeled, cooked small shrimp, halved 3/4 cup diced mango or pineapple & 2 tablespoons diced red onion 1/2 to 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning & 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice DIRECTIONS: Scoop avocado pulp from shells with a spoon; dice avocado; reserve shells.

STARKES AFTER White House: Obama To Appear On Leno's Show PRESIDENT OBAMA AndJAYLENO WASHINGTON President Barack Obama has landed a spot on Jay Leno's late-night talk show, a chance for the president to add a light touch to his effort to get the economy back on track. NBC says it will be the first time a sitting presid ent has appeare d on such a program. The White House said Monday that Obama will visit "The Tonight Show With Jay Lena" during his trip to Los Angeles on Thursday. NBC will tape the program and then air it that night, after Obama has returned to Washington.

Robin Thicke On J.Hud: Touring Will Be Cathanic JENNIFER HUDSON And ROBIN TIDCKE LOS ANGELES -T eaming up for a nationwide tour with Jennifer Hudson was a no-braine r for Robin Thicke. They first collaborated on "Giving Myself, a beautiful track from h e r selftitled debut album. "Luckily, h e r voice i s ready to go at all time s," Thicke told me earlier today. "She showed up, I had this great littl e song in the spirit of Whitney Houston, and she sat down next to me and I starte d singing it for h er, and she lov e d it right off the bat. W e got her behind the microphone and she Jennifer Hudson-edit." The two kick off their coheadlining six week tour on March 31 in Albany, N.Y. Chris Brown And Rihanna Did Not Record A Duet last Month People magazine published a report denying that Rihanna and Chris Brown recorded a duet together last month. CNN reported that producer Polow Da Don had overseen the pair's recording sessions after Brown was charged with two felonies in the alleged altercation. "The reports are inaccurate," Polow's publicist, Laura Wright, told U sMagazine. com calling the CNN report misinformed. "The duet was recorded long before the incident." "Contrary to published reports, Chris Brown and Rihanna did not record a duet after the incident," echoed the People report, quoting a "label source" with knowledge of the recording. The confusion seems to be the result of a demo RIHANNA And CHRIS recorded by Brown and Rihanna in 2008, which Polow Da Don spoke with MTV News about after it leaked onto the Internet in January. According to People, their "reference vocals" were meant to instruct the eventual singers on how to do the song. The track, titled "Bad Girl," was intended to be on the soundtrack for the recent film "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and was eventually recorded by the Pussycat Dolls. Gucci Mane savs He Went -Straight"TrfThe Studio aner,Leaving-Jail The Gucc is home. Gucci Mane was released from an Atlanta detention cente r Friday and went right back to entertaining.

Gucci said he was in the studio with producers Drumma Boy and Frank Nitti, as well as up-andcomers Fat Boy and Zaytoven. "I got this one song called 'Wee k end' -it's tight," he described. "It was produced by Fat Boy. I did songs for the 'hood, for the trap. I did a couple of songs for the clubs and one for the girls The rapper promises a new LP soon "I'm working on .it now h e said. "I don't know when it' s coming out. I'm only 30 percent done. GUCCIMANE No title yet. I'm trying to see where the music takes me and base the title on t:p.e music. I'm just going through a lot of new material. In September, when Gucci went away, he was at the height of his career. He parlayed a strong_ string of street records into major love around his city. He was one of the most popular artists in Atlanta when he went in and only got bigger while in jail. In the ATL, you can't escape songs like "Bricks" and "Make the Trap Say Aye," an OJ Da Juiceman song featuring Gucc.

Entertainment Kanve West And 88-Kevs Are The New Dinv Old Men on The Block KANYEWEST Arid 88-KEYS Mortimer and Randolph Duke from "Trading Places." The Muppets' Statler and Waldorf. Arsenio Hall and Eddie Murphy's barbershopdwelling characters from "Coming to America." And now, welcome Rufus West and his friend of over 70 years, Clifford, to the grumpy senior-citizen com edy fold. "Some people like to refer to me as '88-Keys,' dirty old goat Clifford said, sitting next to his elderly friend. "They call him ... ," Clifford trailed off point-ing to his gray-haired buddy. "What's that African boy's name?" "They don't call you '88' nothing," Mr. West countered. "They call you '88-years-old.' Under the makeup, "Clifford" is actually 88-Keys and Mr. West is, well, Mr. West -the 1 2 -ti me-Gram my-winning Kanye West, that is. Both artists were goofing around in character on the Hollywood set of Keys' "Stay Up (Viagra)" v ideo. "You been stupid since the '50s," Rufus said to Clifford, who told MTV. News they were filming a commercial. "This ain't no commercial, this is a motion-picture singing video with a song to it. I been correcting your dumb self since the '50s." "Why you always gotta embarrass me?" Clifford asked. "Actually, I brought some self-esteem back to you," Rufus answered. Canadian Music Stanup Gives Death Row Second life TORONTO --The music startup WIDEawake Entertainment Group is moving from obscurity to Death Row, having unveiled its ambitious plans for the U.S. gangsta rap label, whose catalog includes recording s by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur. De spite a low profile even in its home country, WIDEawake snapped up Death Row Records from bankruptcy for $18 million in January. It now plans what it says will be a "hugely profitable" bus iness strategy for the company, built upon digital an<;l mobile formats, synchronization licensing deals for television and film, and the issuing of pre viously ).mreleased material -including songs by Shakur, who was killed in 1996. Some industry observers have questioned the acquisition price, but WIDEawake founder/CEO Lara Lavi says there are plenty of revenue opportu nities. "Th e labe l hasn't been exploited signific antly for the digital market," she says. "There's no mobile exploitation and absolutely no synch (synchronization license) income When you put those things together, you have a pretty good sense of what this company is worth." She quickly set her sights on Death Row, saying the labe l's financial details made it attractive. Lavi says that even with all the turmoil surro undin g Death Row includin g the incarceration of its founder Suge Knight and the bankruptcy -it was still pulling in $3 million-$5 million in what she call s "passive" annual income, without promotion or significant marketing s upport. 'EXQUISITE MATERIAL' Lavi has hired former Death Row producer/engineer John Payne as senior vice president at Death Row/WIDEawake Entertainment LLC. Payne says the real oppor tunities in the 10,000 -s ong catalog reside in unreleased tracks by the likes of Petey Pablo, Kurupt, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and even Beyonce. He's now working with t h artists con cerned, ensuring that appropriate contracts are in plac e. Rick Ross Finallv Admits Prison-Guard Past RICK ROSS Mter months of denials and flat-out r efusing to address the subject, Rick Ross has admitted to being employed as a correctional officer. In the May issu e of XXL magazine, the Miami rap star finally owns up. "Me not answering or addressing that situation has nothing to do with my career," he's quoted as saying. "I've accomplished enough, and I've made enough money for me to be good ... Yes, it was me in those pictures. But I'mma tell you this. Me taking that job, I was doing my job You understand what I mean?'' After a picture of Ross wearing a guard uniform leaked onto the Internet, The Gun Web site was the first to crack the case concerning Ross' controversial background. They released purported official papers detailing his job and old pay stubs. While the evidence of Ross' past seemed 'irrefutable, the MC had brushed it off until now, despite blog talk and continual mocking from 50 Cent (the G-Unit have constantly called him "Officer Ricky" in songs and interviews). Ross told XXL that his credibility cannot be fazed and the drug-dealing stories in his songs are authentic. "T h e stuff I talk about is real. The dop e is real," he insisted. "The gun talk is official. Look up [notorious Miami gang member) Kenneth 'Boobie' Williams. Look where he's from. That's not nothing to be proud of. I wish that on no man. But, just to let you know, that's what I witnessed. It's a reality. I cannot discuss certain p eo ple that's still in the streets, and I will not. I took a street oath and I'mma liv e by that, and I'mma die by that. And it's not about a music career, 'cause that s h I'm good. It's about m e and being in the streets." Dwavne Johnson Admits To College Steroid Use Steroids have become a fact of life in the sports world, but rarely do those in the movie business have an intimate, first-person perspectiv e on the dangers and allures of performanceenhancing drugs But then, how many movie stars went from coll ege football to professio n a l wrestling to box office hits like "The Game Plan" and Get Smart"? When Dwayne Johnson talked with MTV N ews -in a cab -about latest Disney movie, "Race to Witch Mountain", he ended up sharing not only his thoughts on 'raids, but also his personal experience using them. DWAYNE JOHNSON biggest stars. The WWE has experienced numerous steroid scandals, from the suspension of 10 wrestlers for drug-policy violations in 2007 to the suspected steroid-related deaths of stars Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit. "TT :II c l< )> :a 0 :X: 1\) 1\) 0 0 CD I tried it," Johnson admitted. "Me and my bud dies tried it back in the day when I was 18 or 19. Didn't know what we were doing." ., r "It's not as prevalent 0 That was around the time that Johnson was a defensive lineman for the University of Miami Hurricanes, where he was part of the 1991 National Championship team. After a short stint in the Canadian Football League, Johnson gave pro wrestling a go, and eventually became one of World Wrestling Entertainment's today in our sports as it :!:! was 10 years ago," Johnson said. "But we en have to recognize that a culture was created where it was OK to do that, and a lot of team managers, owners, players who didn't do it would turn the other cheek. We recognize that, and now we have to institute stronger penalties, which we are dqing." "The of Our Community Speaking for Itself" . ulletin \L _..)

Tip has evidently made a pledge not to divulge information about his reported collaborations with Dr. Dre for the Doc's forthcoming Detox LP -even though an inside source confirmed the information to MTV News, and tracks have leaked (one of which was labeled "I Am Hip-Hop (Detox)," with Tip referencing verses.for Dre. Still, T.I. will not open up about his work on the album. "I heard about that," Tip said nonchalantiy about the Detox tracks leaking on Monday in the New York City borough of the Bronx, where he spoke to kids at a Boys & Girls Club. As questioni!fg about Detox continued, T.I. replied, "Did I really reference vocals. for Dr. Dre? Did Dr. Dre confirm I referenced vocals for Dr. Dre? I cannot confirm or deny my involv.ement with the Detox project, but if I had the chance to.work with the great Dr. Dre, it would be an honor and a privilege, and definitely be a pivotal moment and highlight of my CB.Jeer." T.I. had previously told T.I.

"I can't make it to everybody; Qut I'm gonna do as much as I can." T.I. has als o been at work on a new album, but doesn't have a release date as of yet.

However, file sharing while a great technology fete opens the gateway to your computer allowing Trojans, Worms, Malware, and nasty viruses to infect your com puter. In short Kazaa, lmesh Lime wire are breeding grounds for viruses. Think of a cave filled : with bats, goo, and feces. Well, your computer becomes that cave when you use file sharing pro grams for a prolonged period of time Last, month a new customer approached me for advice about his family's computer, he wanted to know why his computer was suddenly running so slow My first question to him was, do your children use Lime wire. The answer was a resounding "Yes I quickly explained how harmful Lime wire is to his computer and he ran off towards his housa. yelling his son's name in vain. The best protection for your computer against viruses is just not to use free file sharing programs .
