Service Continue After Pastor Removes Noose From Church Grounds Pastor Antonio Hawkins says he did not want to alarm his congregation, so when he saw the noose on the church grounds, while worship service was ongoing, he immediately removed it. Last Sunday morning, culprits erected what appeared to be a lynch ing noose on the grounds of the Exciting Faith Alive at Tampa Bay Church in Valrico. door knobs and vandals pulled light fixtures out of the ground in the parking area. "I did not call the police because I thought that it was random. But this is alarming. "I thought that we, as a nation, would have moved beyond these boundaries. Even with the election of our new president, we are still struggling to cross racial borders," the young minister said. Pastor Hawkins says he noticed the structure when he went to retrieve his Bible from his car while service was ongoing (about 11:30 a. m.) Not to alarm the members, he called out one of the members to help him disassemble the structure. The noose "It is my hope that in light of this event, we will be drawn to understand that God is a just God who brings divine understanding to all mankind. Whoever did The noose hanging from a tree limb. this, in due season, the was tied to a tree branch inside a stack of tires on the church grounds. Pastor Hawkins explained that the tires were removed from a portable on the grounds and the limb came from a stack piled on the grounds where they've been doing some cleaning. The culprit attached the noose to one of the limbs and placed it inside the tires. "We went ahead and dismantled it because we didn't want the members alarmed, nor did we want law enforcement officers disrupting the service. We decided to come back on Monday, put it back together and then file a report, which is what we did," the pastor further He learned that that was not the correct thing to do because that stalls the investigation. The crime has been ruled as trespassing. Before this incident, Pastor Hawkins said thieves stole Lord will reveal them. Pastor Hawkins and the 330-member Faith Alive congregation moved into the Valrico edifice in October, 2008. The prior occupants were a mostly white congregation. Since this incident, Pastor Hawkins says he has received calls from news agen cies from around the country. Several pastors have stopped by to offer support and encouragement and he even received a call from a soldier from Afghanistan. Secure your retirement savings with a CD IRA from Fifth Third Bank.

(Photo courtesy of Brian LaPeter, Citrus County Chronicle). BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On December 28, 2004, 17-year-old William Thornton, IV, was driving without a license in down an unfamiliar road in Lecanto, Florida late at night. Traveling about 42 mph in a 30 mph zone, Thornton didn't know that a stop sign was at the top of the hill. He attempted to stop, but skidded into the path of a vehicle driven by Brandon Mushlit and his girlfriend, Ms. Sara Jo Williams. Mushlit's vehicle struck the car Thornton was driving. Both Mushlit, 25, and Ms. Williams, 23 who were not wearing seatbelts, were ejected from the vehicle Both died as a result of the accident. Police le arned that Mushlit had a blood alcohol level of 1.1 at the time of his death. Thornton was arrested and charged with vehicular homi cide. Acting on the advice of his then Public Defender, Attorney Eric Evilsizer, who told him he would receive probation, Thornton entered a plea of no contest. However, when Thornton stood before Marion County judge, Richard Howard, in August 2005, with his newly acquired attorney, Dale Merrill, he was given the maximum sentence of .30 years in prison. Thornton attempted to withdraw his plea, but Judge Howard denied his request. His appeal to the Fifth District Court of Appeal in August 2007, sided with the judge. As the case unfolded in the newspapers, Tampa attorneys Barry Cohen and Stephen Romine were monitoring the case. Time for taking action was running out and Attorney Romine decided to volunteer his services to correct an injustice. Attorney Romine said, "We sent an attorney to talk to him to make sure he hadn't hired an attorney and then I contacted his mother. I told her, you don't know me, but I want to help your son. "She said, I can't pay you and I said to her I don't want your money, just your blessing because this is the right thing to do." Attorney Romine uncovered a series of errors in the case ranging from the public defender's office to the investigating officers. After filing a series of motions, including having Judge Howard recuse himself because the judge would be called as a wit ness. Attorney Romine said after he won a motion to set aside the verdict due to inef fective counsel, he conferred with Thornton. Foi' the last 4 years, h e has had this hang ing over his head and he real ly wanted to think about his future again." As a result, Thornton and Attorney Romine stood before Judge William Swigert and once again entered a plea of no contest. Only this time, Thornton was sentenced as a youthful offender, adjudication was withheld, and he was given credit for the 3 years and 7 months he has already served in prison. He will complete the remaining 28 months of his sentence on probation and if he is successful, will not have a felony record, Attorney Romine said. "This young man could have been bitter, but while he was in prison, he completed his credits and earned his GED. Eight days after earning his GED, he enrolled in a computer repair class and scored the. highest possible on the test. He completed the course and earned his certification in 1-112 years. "He has a natural artistic gift and he would like to pursue his education and a career in art. He will be successful," Attorney Romine said.

Columns Whv Chuck Berrv Rebelled! The name of the song was "School Days," better known as Ring, Ring Goes the Bell!" It was written and recorded by Chuck Berry.According to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, "Schoo1 Days' lyrics describe the stress and drudgery of an American high school student's daily routine." The song was recorded in 1957. The follow ing was what it said. Said Chuck Berry, "Up in the mornin' and out to school! The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule. American history and practi cal math .. You study'em hard and hope to pass! Workin' your fingers right down to the bone! And the guy behind you won't leave you alone!" (Does it sound familiar, somebody?) Then he says, "Ring, ring goes the bell! The cook in the lunch room's ready to sell! You're lucky if you can find a seat You're fortunate .if you have time to eat! Back in the class room ; open your books! The teacher don't know how mean she looks!" The song continues, but you get the general gist. This is a protest song but why and about what? Perhaps, historians Alvin and Heidi Toffler can explain. Say the Toffler's, 'As work shifted out of the fields and the home, children had to be prepared for factory life. As Andrew Ure wrote in 1835, 'it was nearly impos sible to convert persons past the age of puberty into useful factory labor.' However, if young people could be pre fitted to the industrial system it would vastly ease the prob lems of industrial discipline later on. The result was another central structure of all industrial societies : mass education The Tofflers continue, "Built on the factory model, mass education taught basic reading, writing and arithmetic, a bit of history and other subjects. This was the 'overt curriculum.' But beneath it lay an invisible or 'covert curriculum' that was far more basic. It consisted and still does in most indus trial nations of three courses: one in punctmility, one in obedience and one in rote, repetitive work. Factory labor demanded workers who showed up on time, especially assemblyline employees. It deJpanded workers who would take orders from a management hierarchy without question ing. And it demanded men and women prepared to slave away at machines or in offices, performing brutally repetitious operations. Thus," conclude the Tofflers, "from the midnineteenth century to the present-day, one found a relentless educational pro-, gression: children started school at a younger and younger age; the school year became longer and longer, and the number of years of compulsory schooling irresistibly increased." Later on, in their text entitled The Third Wave, the Tofflers agree that mass public education has indeed, been a great humanizing concept. "Nevertheless," they warn, "industrial society schools have machined generation after generation of young people into a pliable, regimented work force of the type required by electromechanical technology and the assembly line." If you follow the Toffler's mindset, it's easy to understand why Chuck Berry wrote "School Days." It is more than simply a rock n'roll hit. It is an attack on an infiltration of what had first been created to give each child and each American citi zen the gift of clear thinking and free thought "School Days" is a protest song against the poisoning of the American school system by plantation industrialists. But by the looks of our present school situation, it seems we need Chuck Berry to sing "School Days, again! For, a revolution is brew ing And it may already have begun in our schools Black American Insight continued from page 4-A who survived the destruction of their community, and established a memorial to residents who died in the riot. Surely, America will not heal its race problem until every institution has researched, admitted and apologized for its role in slav ery, Jim Crow and racism. Harambee. 1\) c 0 c.o A Message To Parents And Children here is an old saying that the A boy is father to the man and that the girl is mother to the woman When I first heard this, I gave this adage some careful thought. It is true that every child should adopt as their philosophy of life and try to live by this philosophy. First of all, let us examine what is meant by that phrase. It is a fact that men come from boys and women come from girls. In other words, all human beings are chil dren first and they grow into men and women. Not only do children grow into men and women, but what they do and how they prepare themselves as children, gen erally determines what kind of man or woman they will become. Yes, there are some exceptions to almost every rule. But, the majority of human beings aren't exceptions. They are mostly ordinary humans who follow the norm. Generally, children who grow up in loving homes usually become loving an. g caring adult. Those that grow up in law-abiding homes usually become law-abiding adults. Children with good study habits, good work ethics and young achievers, usually develop into success ful adults. These examples explain why it is said that the boy is the father to the man and the girl is mother to the woman. It doesn't stop there though. I could go on and on citing things that are needed to become a part of a child's DNA in order for them to become solid achieving adults. This is why President Barack Obama constantly reminds parents to cut off the television, silence the Ipod and shut down the computer games and have their children open a book. If a child can t read, then he or she won't be able to read as an adult If they can't c;:ount as a youngster, they won't be able to count as an adult. If they aren't taught any moral, social and family values as a child, usually they won't have any as an adult. This message is addressed to children because they need to hear this and hook their star to this very worthwhile ., philosophy. It is_ a message to r parents because they need to 0 grasp this concept and instill it into their children. )> Parents need to encourage and help their children prepare as youngsters to he good, solid and successful adults The boy is father to the man he is most likely to become. Likewise, the girl is mother to the woman that she is most likely to become. UJ m z ::! z m r I Ill c: r r m -1 z "tt c: m l en :t m c m < m :c -< .. -I c: m UJ c ) :: :: :' )> What DiHerence Will It Make; z c ., The phrase, "What dif ference will it make," is the greatest escape clause ever made It s the ultimate excuse for not taking action against events that you know are wrong, and against the people who are responsible Advocates For Safe Commu-nities, Incorporated was created after the murder of Isaiah Brooks on February 6, 2005. His moth er, Darla Saunders, and her husband, Elliott, creat ed thif organization to not just help find her son's kiiler, but to also help find the killers of several young people whose cases are still unsolved. I've actually heard some people saying they don't think it will make a differ ence bringing the killers of these young people to justice, because there will be more. What's equally amazing is people aren't concerned about the deaths of these young people until it happens to them. I often wonder what it's like having a son, daughter, associate husband, wife, or even sibling who knows who these murderers are, but remain silent. For some stu pid reason, they feel there is a need to protect these peo ple. To take it a step furthe1', the so-called "No Snitch" rule has been added to the "Bible Of The Streets," and young people worship that concept. It's amazing how others feel drawn to these peopld who look at themselves as someone who should be feared and respected. As long as we walk around in fear of these people, they will feel free to do it again, and you could be their next target. ::c We all have a responsibility to our community and ,its < safety. None of us should have to live among murderers and the people who harbor them No parent is supposed to bury their children. In some cases, the person who took their life has attended the funeral and put on a show of concern for the grieving fam ily, knowing all the time they are responsible. What kind of person can wake up every morning knowing they've murdered someone? It's obvious their freedom means more to them than the lives of inno cent people. So, the next time you ask what difference will it make, the answer is .... a whole lot. Once you start locking these murderers up and let the tem punish them, will G') m take away their power to kill U1 I )> again.

Public librarv Conducts survev About Computers And Internet From April 6 to April 19, the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative is participating in a nationwide Internet survey to find out how people use the free computers and Internet connections in public libraries. The U. S. IMPACT web survey is being conducted by the University of Washington Information School with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Until now, there has been no nationwide research about how library-computing services fit into peoples' lives. Some believe that library computers are used mostly for entertainment, but librarians rep.:>rt that people use them to find jobs, stay connected with family and friends, or to get health information. The goal of the U. S. IMPACT studies is to collect evidence about the ways computers in public libraries help people and their communities across the United States.

Moorer, a long time Tampa resident and collector, has acquired several items of interest during his travels. An artist by trade, Moorer came across a col lection of magazines pub-lished hy the NAACP while the agency was in its infancy.

In the background, he has several copies of "The Crisis" Magazine, published by the NAACP ers such as James Brown and Louie Armstrong, as well as figurines, coins, and pendants. "I displayed and told the history about the historical items I had. People showed a lot of interest and discovered some things they never knew. It brings me joy to see the expressions on people's faces, both young and old, when they learn a little history about their past and -what their ancestors had to go through so that we can enjoy what we have today." Moorer has shown his collection at several locations throughout Tampa, including the College Hill Library. He hopes to take part in the NAACP's lOOth Anniversary Celebration Gala next month.

Sports Dunuv Invited Bv Obama To Join White House Faith-Based Council TONY DUNGY And PRES. BARACK OBAMA TAMPA --Former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy has been invited to join a White House faith-based advisory council. Dungy publicist Todd Starowitz confirmed Tuesday that President Barack Obama had invited the former coach tp join the Advisory Council on FaithBased and Neighbor-hood Partnerships. He said Dungy had not decided whether to accept. _Dungy, who retired from the Colts in January, is a devoted. Christian and was the first Black coach to win the Super Bowl. H e has been invo lved with many charities, including Big Brothers/Bi g Sisters, the prison ministries and loca l food banks. H e previously served on President George W. Bush's Council on Service and Civic Par ticipation. Dungy and his wife, Lauren, attended Obama's inauguration in January, setting off speculation that Dungy would be invite d to work with the administration in some capacity. He said his preference would be working with trou bled youngsters in America. His son, James, committed suicide in late 2005 while attending college in Florida. Michael Vick To Pav Falcons S&.5M MICHAEL VICK FLOWERY BRANCH, GA --Michael Vick has agreed to pay the Atlanta Falcons $6.5 million as part of his bankruptcy case, clearing the way for the team to release him before training camp, a person familiar with the settlement said Tuesday. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the settlement was not being announced publicly, said the payment would go toward settling a bankruptcy claim by the team for salary paid to Vick while he was missing the last two seasons. The settlement was reached ahead of Vick's bankruptcy hearing in Virginia on Thursday. It does not affect the Falcons' claim involving bonuses already paid to the quarterback An arbitrator ruled the team was owed $20 million, a federal judge reduced the award to $3.75 million and the team has appealed to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. A ruling is expected in June.

Tiger's Bac I BY VAUGHN WILSON Courtesy Capital Outlook Tiger Woods started the final round of the 2009 Arnold Palmer Invitational five strokes behind the leader Sean O'Hair, but put tog ether one of his best closing rounds to win at the final hole. Woods hit a 16foot birdie on the 72nd hol e to finish one ahead of O'Hair. In the words of the great Yogi Berra, "It's like d eja vu all over again." Last year Woods hit a 25-foot putt to make birdie to beat Bart Bryant at the final hol e for a come-from-behind victory there as well. With a fierce storm that passed through Orlando at 6 a.m., play was suspended until nearly 1 p.m. Tourna-. ment organizers sent pairings off both the first and lOth tees and grouped them in threesomes in order to get the round in. ahead of the darkness. Even with the adjustments, it was nearly dark when Woods' final rotation found the bottom of the cup at the 18th hole The delay didn't hurt attendance as the. day was clearly the largest in attendance of the four day tournament. The cheers at the final hole replicated that of a football game with tens of thousands of spectators within 50-100 feet ofthe-.green. Woods looks like the Tiger of old. That's good and bad news for the PGA Tour. The good news is the television ratings when Tiger is in the hunt like Sunday are usually off the charts, no matter what other event is taking place. The "Elite 8" of the NCAA tournament was going on at the time of the golf tournament on Sunday. Tiger's appeal has caused programming TIGER WOODS adjustments by other sports such as the NBA as not to conflict with a Sunday run by Woods. Woods never misses a must-make putt Sure he misses putts, but he never misses one with the tournament on the line. Everyone had a feeling he was going to make the 16-foot putt. As he started the putt rolling, you could feel and hear the groundswell of energy. With every roll of his signature One golf ball, they crowd got louder. While the putt was on the way, Woods backed-off gathering energy for a monumental celebration. When the putt creeped in the left side, Woods let out a roar worthy of the king of the jungle. In this game, he truly is. Arnold Palmer, the tournaments namesake and host greeted Tiger with an awesome comment. "Your dad would be proud," Palmer uttered. He was referreing to Woods late father, Earl who groomed him for the game mentally and physically. This victory comes just two weeks ahead of the first major tournament of 2009, The Masters. Woods. has won four times there and will certainly be the favorite with this performance. For those nay,sayers who said he wouldn't be the same, he delivered a resounding "I'm back," with his play at Bay Hill. Tiger Woods'-Win Gets Highest TV Rating Since Open NEW YORK--Tiger Woods' victory at Bay Hill has produced the highest overnight television : golf rating since the U.S. Open; Woods made up a fiveshot deficit Sunda:yand won the Arnold. Palmer Invitational with a birdie on the last hole. NBC Sports says the final round drew a 4.9 overnight rating with a 10 share. According -to Nielsen Media Research, that's the highest rating of any golf tqurnament since the U.S.' Open in June. Woods won thattournament in a playoff. The Bay Hill rating was tip 23 percent from last year and attracted more viewers than the British Open and PGA Championship last when Woods did not play because of knee surgL'ry. ., :::0 c )> "0 :::0 r-(.) 1\) 0 0 z c ., :::0 c .... 01 :i>

Officer Robert Powell had been placed on paid leave pending an investigation of the March 18 incident. "I made this decision in the hope that my resignation will allow the Dallas Police Department, my fellow officers and the citizens of Dallas to better reflect on this experience, learn from the mistakes made, and move forward," Powell said in a statement Support The Florida Sentinel Advertisers issue d thro u g h his a t torneys. He had stopped Houston Te xans running back Ryan Moats' SUV outside Baylor Regional Medical Center in suburban Plano after the vehicle rolled through a red light. The officer pulled out his gun and threatened Moats with jail as the player and his family pleaded to be allowed to go inside the hospital. Powell continued writing Moats a ticket and lecturing him even after a fellow officer confirmed that Moats' mother-in-law was dying. Jonetta Collinsworth, 45, died of breast cancer before Powell allowed Moats to go inside the hospital. Powell's resignation was first reported by A DallasFort Worth television station. He later issued an apology, and Moats said he would accept it. "I still hope to speak with the Moats family to personally express my deep regret, sympathy, and to apologize for my poor judgment and unprofessional conduct;" he said in the Wednesday statement. He also said he wanted to apologize to his fellow officers. Winfield Joins ESPN As Analvst DAVE WINFIELD BRISTOL, Conn -of Farner Dave Winfield has joined ESPN as a ::Baseba:Il Tonight analyst. Winfield will mainly work Sundays and select Mondays with host Karl Ravech and analysts Peter Gammons and John Kruk throughout the season. Winfield will make his first appearance Sunday before the opening game between Atlanta and Philadelphia. -He played 22 seasons for six teams and was a 12-time AllStar and seven-time Gold Glove winner. He had 3,110 hits and 465 home runs and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001. Burress' Gun Case Postponed PlAXICO BURRESS NEW YORK --A gun possession case against New York Giants star Plaxico Burress was adjourned Tuesday until June unless he -r.eaches a plea agreement with pros_ecutors to resolve the matter sooner. Burress accidentally spot himself in the thigh with unlicensed gun he'q stuffed into his waistband at a Manhattan nightclub last year. Both side. s .agreed to adjourn the case to June 15 following a brief hearing before Judge Michael Yazinsky. Burress' bail was continued Prosecutor John Wolfstaetter told the judge that the prosecution was con tinuing its investigation. Brafman told reporters after the hearing that he had reached no plea agreement with prose<;utors and said discussions were continuing. If the two sides agree, they will not necessarily wait for the scheduled court date, he said.

Sports CanTheBucs Land Cutler Rumors have it that quarterback Jay Cutler of the Denver Broncos will be traded. Those same rumors say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the inside track in getting Cutler if he is traded. The Bucs have the money and the draft picks needed to put Cutler in a uniform. Those facts, plus the fact that the Bucs do not have a returning starting quarterback makes a trade to the Bucs interesting for Cutler. It is also a good deal for the Bucs because right now there is a lot of uncertainty at the quarterback position. We will see. Sickles' Henson In All-Star Game JOHN HENSON Sickles High School player, John Henson was on national television last Wednesday night playing basketball. The occasion was the annual McDonald's All-American All-Star game. Henson played with the East squad and scored 10-points, had 2 rebounds and two blocked shots. The North Carolina State signee looked good. At one point Henson grabbed a defensive rebound, dribbled length of the court and dunked the ball. Players like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Alonzo Mourning, Shaq O'Neal, among other NBA greats have all played in the prestigious basketball event. Tigers Release Gary Sheffield Former Belmont Heights Little League star Gary Sheffield has been released by the Detroit Tigers. But don't worry about Gary. He will have a team any day now. The Philadelphia Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds have both shown an interest in signing Gary. Even if no team signs Sheffield, there is still no reason to worry. The Tigers are on the hook for $14 million to Gary for this year. Gary wants to play. He has 499 career homeruns. He wants to hit one more to reach the 500 career homerun milestone. Is Tiger Masters Ready? Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Golf Tournament last week for the 6th time. The win was a big confidence booster for Woods. But, the question remains: is Tiger ready for the Masters Tournament that begins next Thursday. Tiger putted exceptionally well at Bay Hill, but he spent three days spraying his driver all over the place. He can't do that at the Masters and win. Tiger is back from knee surgery that kept him sidelined for about nine months. Of course, Tiger has spent the week working-on his driver and fine-tuning his short game. For sure Tiger is one of the tournament favorites.

District III Commander, Major Gerald Honeywell said according to his officers, they went to th e bus iness to a rr est Marterrence Holloway, 29. Maj. Honeywell said Holloway was being sought on outstanding warrants. H e a lso said probable cause had been established for hi s officers to inspect vehicles at the busine ss based on previous complaints "When my officers went into the business to arrest Holloway, they were confronted b y Ernest Gilliard, 30 "Gilliard got into a verbal dispute with one of the officers, the officer attempted to move him out of the way so they could check the vehicle identification numbers on vehicles parked inside and outside the shop, and the verbal dispute continued Maj. Honeywell said the officer attempted to move Gilliard out of the way when he allegedly slapped the officer's hand away. "That's when he was tased and arrested on charges of resisting arrest without violence and battery on a law enforcement officer "Gilliard had been told several times by the officers to allow them to check the YIN numbers on the vehicles at the business and he was not allow ing them to do that." National MARTERRENCE HOLLOWAY ..... said he thinks he's being harassed by police Community act1 v1st, Michelle Williams, who had just arrived when the officer tased Gilliard, said in her opin ion it wasn't necessary "What I saw was the young man waling away from an officer and being tased. Anything that h appened before that, I know nothing about. However, I did. capture the incident with Gilliard on my phone." On Thursday Ms. Williams went before the Tampa City Council to demand action be taken against the officer and that all police officers working in urban areas be retrained. Hplloway said he opened his business November 2008, and allows kids in the area to earn money by cleaning up washing cars, and other small jobs. "I even take them on outings like barbecues and to the beach I just want to keep them off the streets I've been there and done that, so I know the dangers they're up against.

Well it' s better than giving h er a bunch of DVD s that don't work. President Obama went t o the Buckingha m P a lace in London where he and First Lady Michelle had a lovely t ea with the Queen of England The pr ess corps from both s ides of the Pond was paying close attention to this meeting After all, it was another gift exchange. Something the president didn't do too well the l as t time out. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown gave Obama an ornam ental pen holde r carved from th e timbe rs of th e HMS Gannet -an anti-slave ship from the 1800s. President Obama, on the other hand, treated the gift exchange like a Secret Santa party forking over a bunch of American movies on DYDs. If that wasn't bad enough, it turns out they didn't work So what do you give a Queen? Turns out she's pretty hip In fact she owns a Wii. ERNEST GILLIARD ... feels he was physically and verbally abused by the officers week, saying they've gotten a complaint about something going on here. It's just an excuse for them to harass me and try to shut me down ." Gilliard sa id of him being / tased, he never saw it coming. "One of the officers wanted to check the YIN number on a car I had just painted and I was trying to tell him that when he got verbally abusive with me I told him I didn t like the way he was talking to me. He pushed me out of the door to the shop, and that's when I just put my hands behind my back. "He tased me and then told me he was taking me to jail for obstruction. When he removed the prongs, he told me I was. being charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest without violence Ms. Williams accompanied Gillliard to the Tampa Police Department's Internal Affairs Division so he could tile a complaint against the officers Episcopal Minister Defrocked After Becoming A Muslim SEATTLE, WA Ann H o 1 m e s Redding has what could b e called a crisis of __ faiihs.

Damages were estimated to be about $1,000 There was the danger the brush fire could have spread from the park to nearby houses causing more property damage, but fortunately fire crews kept the flames from spreading too far. Roberts was arrested Tuesday, charged with intentionally setting a trash can on fire on the deck. The fire spread causing the property damage.

The main topic of the will be t4e recent sentencing o f Eddie Darien. DR.W.JAMES FAVORITE point out the injustice he felt was served in his case. EDDIE DARIEN Attorney) Mark Ober. There seems to be a plan to put Black men in jail no matter what. On December 1 6 2007, Darien, 6 4, was involved i n an accident with Melvin Ortiz. According to reports, Ortiz ran a red light at Cypress and Lois, striking the vehicle occu pied by Darien and a pas senger. After the accident, Ortiz fled, and later caused u. another accident when he C collided with another vehiz <( Last Tuesday, Darien was sentenced to 34 months in Florida Sate Pri son o n his charges. Darien has contacted "Pastors On Patrol" to assist him as he sought to clarify what he first deemed a misunderstand ing "Eddie Darien had five witnes s es in c ourt to dis pute the testimony of Ortiz.

The driver of that vehi-de was injured Ortiz was not charged in either accident. However, because Darien pursued Ortiz after the first accident and allegedly struck him with his vehicle, he was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. "This sounds like the Jennifer Porter case all over again. She hit four children, killed two of them, and never spent one day in jail. I didn't kill anyone and look at what they're doing to me." Dr. Favorite said Pastors On Patrol, the NAACP and COACH Foundation are outraged over what's happening to Black men in the judicial system. :::i Since that time, Darien Dr. W. James Favorite said they all feel Darien got a bum deal. "I've already got calls into Julianne Holt's office ) Mark Ober's office, and anyone else involved in this case.

working From The cross ft is during this season that believers all over the world will remember the actions of Jesus on Calvary. It is because He gave His life that we have life. He took the place of sinful man so that man could have an opportunity to live a life of righteous ness. In this week s lesson recorded in Luke 23:32-47, we read the dialogue and comments made by others during this time in Jesus' life These words and records reveal to us today life lessons that will help us as we continue to press on towards that higher mark. During His time on earth Jesus tried to help as many as those who wanted to be helped. He responded to the needs of humanity whenever He was Jed to do so by His Father. He healed the sick, fed the hungry, and encouraged those who had given up. Yet, they still crucified Him. They falsely accused Him; they lied on Him, and made a mockery of His ministry. The only thing Jesus was guilty of was doing the work of Him who sent Him. This lesson the people of God can learn is that even in your effort to do good and right, people will still mistreat you Even when you are trying to give the best of your service people will still lie on you, falsely accuse you, and seek to kill you They crucified Him with other criminals who were guilty of their crimes (vv. 32, 33).

Saturday Morning Prayer Warri<>rs Service Every Second SaL Of Each Month "Fulfilling The Vision Through Faith to being in this situation? How should you respond? From the cross, the place where He would lay down His life and give up the ghost (vs. 46), Jesus prayed for them. He prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do" (vs. 34a). Instead of praying down thunder from heaven and hoping that their hair fall out, or some other calamity befall them, He prayed that God would forgive them. Jesus understood that forgiveness was more valuable than vengeance. He unde;:stood that forgiveness would serve for eternity, but revenge only for a moment. He said forgive them. From the height on cross Jesus saw a lot. He was able to see people for who they were and where they were When He said THEM, no one really knew whom he was referring to It could have been that He looked around and saw the leaders gathered. He could have looked towards Pilate's house Cert a inly He saw the crowd who once praised Him and then cried crucify Him Maybe, just maybe, from that view on the cross, He saw those who were close to Him; those who walked with Him, talked with Him, and ate with Him, maybe He saw them standing and observing from a distance what was happen ing. Perhaps, He prayed for them. All we know is that in the midst of our tria ls and setbacks that we suffer at the hands of others, sometimes the best thing to do is pray for ELDER ROBERT J DOUGLAS And MRS.

The least likely witn e ss to be c a lled was the one who gave the loudest and most convincing testimo ny, the thief on the cross. In his darkest hour, he saw Jesus for who He was. It is oftentimes in your darkest moment that you see God for who He is. It is in the midst of pain, agony, and suffering that you see that God is real-Jesus did not deliver the man from the consequences of his actions; but He did assure him of a paradise in eternity (vs. 43). Oftentimes you may not get the relief that you want at the time you want it Be assured that when that crisis and that moment is over there is a place of paradise awaiting you.

Home Remedies For Sinus Problems B efore you start tr_ring to treat your smus problems it's pertinent that you figure out why you have sinus problems. Allergies are a fairly common reason for sinus problems Whatever the trigger, these five tips can help you alleviate your sinus problems. Tip 1: Keep Your Cool When the heat is on, the membranes get dry. Mucus isn't cleared as effectively, boosting the risk of infection and other sinus problems, such as sinus headache. In the winter months, you're better off wearing a sweater and keeping it cooler than cranking up the heat so you are comfortable wearing only aT-shirt. Let your nose guide your indoor temperature range. If you are not waking up with nosebleeds or congestion, that is probably a good tem perature range. Tip 2: Humidify Your Air Strive for an indoor environment that's not too dry and not too humid. Dust mites love greater than so% humidity. And if you're aller gic to dust mites, that's bad news for your sinusitis risk. A too-humid indoor environment can also encourage the growth of mold, which can also set off sinus problems. Vaporizers can keep you more comfortable if you are in the midst of a sinus prob lem, but you need to have it close by. It doesn't do any good to have a vaporizer on the other side of the room. Make sure you clean the device daily to keep bacteria from growing in them and making you sicker. Breathe the mist coming from vaporizers, but not the steam. Steam can easily burn you. Ten minutes at a time is often recommended. Tip a: Ventilate our House An energy-efficient house is not necessarily a sinusfriendly one. Yo. u seal up a house to make it more ener gy efficient, and y ou end up with stale air that aggravates sinus problems The solution: Opening up the house on a warmer day to clear the air is a good thing, providing it's not a high-pollen day that will set off your allergies. Tip 4: Hydrate And Irrigate Yourself Drinking a lot of fluids can help keep your sinuses func tioning well -at least a quart a day, but the more the better. Most doctors recommend that you drink enough water every day so your urine is generally clear. Salt water nasal rinses for your nose can help, too. You can buy a kit or mix up your own at home. The recipe: Put 3/4 teaspoon salt in a glass of water. Using a bulb syringe, flush your nasal cav ities to clean out mucus and debris. Neti pots are another way to irrigate your nasal cavi ties. This centuries-old remedy has gained popularity recently, thanks in part to coverage on The Oprah Winfrey Show and in other media. The pot looks like a tea pot with an elongated spout. The devices are sold widely, for about $10 to $20, online and in drug s.tores and health food stores. To use the pot, typically you mix about a pint of luke warm water with a teaspoon of salt. Next, tilt your head over a sink at an angle of about 45 degrees. Place the pot's spout into your top nostr:il and gently pour the solution in. The salt water will flow through your nasal cavity, into the other nostril, and perhaps into your throat. Blow your nose to eliminate a n y water, and then repeat the steps on the other nostril. Cleaning the pots ly is crucial. Tip 5: Avoid Household Irritants Indoor allergies can wreak havoc with your sinuses. Cigarette smoke, cleaning products, hairspray, and other materials that give off fumes can all make your sinus problems worse Anything that has a s trong odor of fumes can be a problem, especially if you are sus ceptible. Cigarette smoke is p robably the No. 1 offender for sinuses. Try ask ing family members to smoke outside or, better yet, to g i ve up the habit. If you're sensitive to pet dander, wash or clean your pets weekly As difficult as it is for pet owners, limiting exposure to your animals at night can help. Catc h More Middle aged adults typical ly sleep only six hours on average. A study conducted by the University of Chica go s hows that by added a n addi tional hour or two of snooze time, will reduce th e risk of coronary artery calcifica tion, which is an early predictor of heart disease, by 33%.

Following the Motown-themed show, the season-three, seventhplace finisher-who famously went on to win a Grammy and an Oscartaped a performance of her single "If This Isn't Love" to air on the show at a later date. Following the perfor-' mance, Hudson, whose tour alongside R obin Thicke kicked off. on March 31, spilled a few beans to Ryan Seacrest. When asked about her engagement and upcoming nuptials to David Otunga, she admitted a date had been set. "Yeah, but it's a secret," the 25-year-old singer said. "I can't tell anybody." Hudson gushed a little further when s h e taped h e r Thursday-afternoon appearance on The Elle n D eGe n e r'es Show. Aft e r the two san g "And I'm T elling You I'm Not Going" from DreamGirls as p art of the s h o\'v''s Bathroom Conce r t Series, the host asked about the happy couple.

Arr'LANTA -The sentencing judge called it "experimental." The U.S. attorney who helped broker the arrangement called it "unique.;' And T.I. himself acknowledged that his plea deal -which reduced a potential 10-year prison term into community service and, more tha' n likely, less than a year's worth of jail time -was "an opportunity." T.I. wasn't the recipient of the deal because he snitched, he's often said. Nor did he get the benefit of the doubt frorfi the legal system because he's rich. Tip landed his plea deal due to a combination of his fame, his familiar troubled past and his ability to recount his transformation from trap star to rap star as a means of influencing at-risk youth. "Ifthey would have gave Joe Blow, who got arrested with the next day or the next week -if [the court] would have gave him my deal, could he have turned around and given as much back to the community as I have? No he couldn't," T .I. told MTV News' Sway during their conversation for "Road to Redemption: The Reckoning." "I showed I was worthy of this and this was something possible," Tip continued. "So they decided the opportunity was worth the chance." Rihanna's Tanoo Anist Explains HerNewlnk RJHANNA Rihanna isn't shy about getting tattoos.

Hendrix Home Tape For Sale, Shows 'Sober' Side JIMI HENDRIX LONDON --A home recording by Jimi Hendrix, which its owners said showed the 1960s rock icon's softer side, will be auctioned next month and is expected to fetch between $70,000 and $140,000. According to co-owner -Mark Sutherland, the tape was recorded by Hendrix in New York in 1968 and then taken to Britain. Carl Niekirk worked in a photography studio below Hendrix's central London residence where, because there was only one entrance to the building, he often doubled as doorman for his famous neighbor, letting in guests including George Harrison. "I don't know how the tapes got from New York to London, but they must have been important if he. took them with him," Sutherland said. "Hendrix ended up in London above where Carl worked. Carl kept getting disturbed by people, and said 'a favor for a favor' ... and Jimi gave him two tapes." Sutherland said a friend met Niekirk .in a pub several years ago and bought the tape from him "for a nominal fee." He is not sure what happened to the second recording. Since tl!' n the tape: s new owners: have been legal dispti'te with the Hendrix estate, and Sutherland said he was now finally able to auction it. Hendrix's estate was not immediately available for comment Sutherland and Ted Owen, managing director of pop memorabilia auctioneer the Fame Bureau which is handling the April 28 online auction, are confident the tape is genuine.

In March 1968, as teenagers, they were officially introduced by her cousin, Emory Chandler, after she expressed an interest in the young Army man who was driving a 1966 GTO in the neighborhood. During her 12th year of school, he came and asked her father for her company. This was a custom, in earlier years, when a young man wanted to date a young woman. After his return to Germany and while serving in Vietnam, they dated by way of the U.S. mail. The love letters became sweeter and sweeter. Upon his return from Viet nam, they were married on December 26, 1968 at the courthouse in Gainesville, Florida. Two of the wedding ushers were Everett Williams, Jr., left, and Solomon Williams. On Saturday, February 14, 2009, as the rain fell gently outside the Church of God by Faith in High Springs, the sun was shining bright in the eyes (some shedding tears of joy) and hearts of those who anx iously awaited the entrance of the Bride and Groom! After 40 years of marriage, Elder James Williams, III entered the sanctuary accom panied by his father, Elder James E.

The couple shares that they have stood strong and that their love has grown even stronger since the reded ication of their vows. In a time when longevity in marriages is somewhat un common, the Williams share that three important factors that have kept their marriage together are: (1) being saved, (2}having the Lord direct their lives, and (3) much prayer, loye and (spiritual) devotion. ''We both believe that in a relationship, there must be first be a commitment to God, ac .19lowledging Him, so that your lives can be directed; self-de nial, humbleness, and truthful and open-lines of communica-., tion are included in the ingre dients that make up the glue to make our 'oneness'. And, sometimes the two of you have get away and rekin dle, when you feel like the sparks are getting low in your relationship," shared Mother Williams.

To combat Conficker your first step should be visiting the Microsoft web site where you can perform all the latest updates and download their patch for the Conficker worm. After you have installed the Microsoft Patch, you now have to update your virus software. Finally, disable the auto run feature on your CD-DVD drive as the Conficker Worm can attack from your internal and external drives :AI 0 l> ""0 ;o r w N 0 0 U) automatically.
