HOLTON Sentinel Ci! Editor On Tuesday night, a retired Hillsborough County educator and Civil Rights activist died following a lengthy illness. Dr. Sam Horton was 79 years old. Dr. Horton was a native of the historic Bealsville, Florida, an East Hillsborough County community settled by 12 for mer slaves. Dr. Horton attended the local schools of Hillsborough Cou fter raduatin m Marshall High School in 1945, he enrolled at Florida A & M, where he graduated at the age of 19 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. He later earned his Master's Degree from Florida State University and his Ph.D., from Nova University in Fort Lauderdale. said, "I was the Area Director when it was suggested that the stadium at the newly built Jefferson High School be named in his honor. Art Smith was the principal at the time The stadium was named in his honor She continued, "Dr. tiorton, along with Harold Clark and the late E. L. Bing, formulat ed responses to the desegregation order in Hillsborough County. He also served as a consultant for education issues in other states. -"Hebegan the United Negro College Fund All-Star Basketball Game in Hillsborough County to bene fit the United Negro College Fund. He arranged for coaches and scouts to attend the game and showcased all seniors dur ing the games." Seventeen years ago, Dr. president of the Hillsborough NAACP he opposed education plans that would lead to more segregated schools in Hillsborough County. His commitment to education was tremendous. It is a sad day, but Sam led a wonderful life of leadership. He will be remembered as one ofTampa's -and one of Florida's -most remarkable citizens." Curtis Stokes, current President of the NAACP said, "Dr. Horton will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He will forever be remembered for the good he did and he will live on, for he truly left a lega cy." Dr. Horton embarked on a career with the Hillsborough County School District as an English teacher. During his 42112 years, he served as a coach and was the principal for the new Jefferson High School when it re-opened. As a trailblazer, Dr. Horton became the first Black General Director for Secondary Education in 1978. Horton established a local chapter of the National Alliance of Black School Educators to bring more African American teachers into the district. Known as HABSE, the organization is dedicated to recruiting and retaining African American teachers. Dr. Horton was its first and only president. DR. SAM HORTON Sept. 21, 1929--April 7, 2009 Mrs. Doretha Edgecomb, Hillsborough County School Board member said, "This is a real loss for the community. He was a problem solver and had the ability to look at the big picture and come up with a solution that everyone could agree on. His analytical ability made him a force both as an educator and as a Civil Rights Although he retired in 1991, Dr. Horton never abandoned his desire to improve the quality of life and education for students of Hillsborough County. Mrs. Mary Bryant, a former co-worker :Of Dr. Horton's After retiring, Dr. Horton unsuccessfully ran for a seat on the Hillsborough County School Board. "It was after he ran for the school board that we approached him about taking over the r eins of the NAACP. We had just merged the Plant City and Tampa Branches of the NAACP under th{l leader ship of the national office and we were looking for someone. to continue the goals we had set for the organization," Mrs. Ann Porter said.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer During last Thurs day's City Council meeting, elections were h e ld to sel ec t a Council Chair and vicechair, as well as a CRA Chair and co-chair. The process began with Councilman Joseph Caetano nominating current chairman Thomas Scott for another term. He won 4-3. Councilwoman Gwen Miller will serve as vice chair. Councilwoman Mary Mulhern was selected as the CRA Chair with Councilman Joseph Caetano being nominated as vice-chair. Council Chairman Scott said he's very honored his colleagues saw fit to elect him to another term. "I look forward to serving for another year and I'm extremely blessed. I'm also very humbled by the experi ence. "The biggest challenges that lie ahead will be the city budget that's already suffering. a $52 million deficit. Also, economic devel opr11ent and putting people back to work is a top priori-THOMAS SCOTT City Council Chairman t y." Chairman Scott said they have already began developing strategy to attract new businesses to the area. He also said affordable housing is a must, as well as developing a mass transit rail system. "Too many people are becoming homeless. People are hurting everywhere, and they are looking to their elected officials to get them through this.

When fir e fight e r s arrived, they reported that 8 apartment units were on fire with flames coming from the roof area. The fire was extinguished, but 8 families have been displaced by fde, smoke and water damage. The American Red Cross has assisted them with shelter and clothing. Investigators determined that the cause of the fire was accidental and the origin appears to be a clothes dryer. Hillsborough County Code Enforcement Investigator, David DeFaria, said once the fire got into the attic area of the buildings, it spread quickly. "'vVe came out to secure the units v vith boards and other security devices. The main problem we have is some of the residents will return and try to salvage some of their property. The builds are too dangerous to enter, so we dis-Aggressive Tumor Claims life Of Young Athlete An aggressive tumor has claimed the life of a high school athlete, who was look ing to graduate this spring. Six months ago, Kevin Bernard Harris, was a happy-go-lucky teen, just beginning his senior year at Howard W. Blake High School and had been on his first job for about 5 months. Then it happened: sudden, severe pain in the side. He was taken to a local hospital last October, examined, given some pain pills and sent home. Within weeks, he was back at the hospital. He was given several exams and it was determined that he had heptoblastorila, a tumor on the liver. According to his mother, Mrs. ,Manning, a biopsy of the' tumor determined that it was cancerous. Manning said her only child would always let her know when something bothered him and she immed .iately sought help for his ailment. Since November, Kevin had spent most of the time in the hospital. He died March 28th. Funeral services will be con ducted on Saturday, April 11, 2009 at Grace Mary M. B. Church at 2 p m. Wilson Funeral Home is in charge of se1vices. In addition to his mother, Kevin is survived by his father, Bernard J. Harris and stepfather, Patrick Manning. Flames tore through roof of this building at the Granada Apartments, displacing 8 families. courage anyone from doing that." Management personnel at the complex have also been extremely vigilant looking for residents returning to the destroyed units. Latina Bush, a 27-year-old mother of a 9 -year-old son, said she just moved into the complex 6 months ago. In a depressed and teary voice, she recalled her experience. "I was inside when the fire started. I looked out my window and saw a teenager yelling for me to get out. I didn't see any smoke because the fire was above me. So, I thought the kid was just playing around. "I looked out again and he was still yelling for me to get out. When I opened my front door, all I saw was black smoke. I immediately went to another door, dropped to the ground and crawled out. By that time, firefighters had arrived and pulled me the rest of the way." Ms. Bush said she knows everyone was devastated by the fire, but also said she lost everything she owned. "All my son and I have are the clothes on our backs. Thank God he was at my mother's house when this happened. "I appreciate the help the Red Cross is giving me. They gave me a place to stay for three days, but after that I don't know. The management at the complex said they will try to help me, but it will be on a priority basis because some of the families displaced are bigger than mine. Right now, I'll accept anything peo ple are willing to donate."

And it didn't, either. Time and time again, Dr. Horton's salt and pepper hair and infectious "Say Hey" smile and unmistakable wisdom, which was a combination of academics, knowledge and mother-wit, brought Tampa-Hillsborough County through the landmines of racial misunderstandings to the horizons of a unified community. His handshake was a bond that was never broken. No more, Dr. Samuel Horton has left us, and the space where he stood is larger than anyone could ever fill. And who will miss Dr. Sam Horton? Ask former at schools where he once taught and would ultimately become principal. Ask the minds he turned and the attitudes he touched with his personable, down-home and patient personality. Never afraid to speak his mind, he stood tall beside such other giants as the late Bob Gilder, Bob Saunders, Sylvia Rodriguez Kimble, E. L. Bi'ng and others whose names now glisten in the pantheon of movers and shakers in the history of Tampa. How much will Sam. 1-Jorton be missed?

What Shall we Tell Our Children A little girl lies sleeping in an ill-fitting bed. Her parents weep because she will never wake up again. Does it matter: that she is Black? We think not. But the fact that the little girl is Black and 8 years young troubles us and fills us with rage . W is respc;msiblt< shattered life of Paris \Vllitehead-Hamilton who was gunncrcjl down while she slept in her St. Petersburg living room .. A young Black man who was accused, denied he had anything to do with her death. Said his sister, "My brother is not a killer." Said her brother, who was in the back seat of a car that drove by Paris' home spraying 50 rounds of bullets, "I didn't pull the trigger!" So, who indeed, did-pull the trigger.ofthe assault rifle that riddled a house and murdered a baby? Who was for selling teenagers AK 47s and bulletproof vests? Who is the villain who pumped .into. .the brains of boys and girls "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth?" Have you noticed? Four things our children seem not to learn in school: are forgiveness, patience, respect and non-violence: < America, what is wrong with us? Our attitudes and the o:t way we walk warn the world that we are on the verge of w perpetual anger. And many of our children's heroes are 0 murderers. Go to the malls. Look at what our children are buying. Remembering Easter 0 n Sunday, April 12th, the world will celebrate the holiest of Christian holidays --Easter Sunday. According to the Bible, it is the anniversary of the time when Jesus Christ gave His life so that man could have everlasting life. We all have heard the story of how Jesus died. But, recently, I received an e-mail that literally changed the image in my mind. Complete with soft music and breath-taking photographs, it talked about how Jesus was forced to carry the cross that He would be nailed to as part of his harsh punishment. It should be noted that crucifixion was the worse of the worst punishments handed down for a crime. The crucifier used large nails, 15 to 20 centimeters long with a 6 centimeters point that were reportedly placed into the pulses of his hand. (It should be noted that 1" is equal to 2.54 cen timeters). The nails are said to have caused the tendons that extend to the shoulder to break, making it difficult to breathe. Jesus had to use the muscles in his back to force air out of his lungs. He had to support the total weight of his body on his feet that were also nailed to the cross. A crown of thorns was placed on his head, mocking His status as royalty. The Bible also talks about the holes in His sides made by spears. It is said that He remained that way for hours, most likely with all of the blood in His body draining from the wounds, before He died. Instead of water, He was given vinegar. And finally, when He could take it no more, His final words were, "It is finished." So, as we prepare for Easter this year, we don't have to worry about bunny rabbits or Easter eggs. Instead, perhaps, we should think about what the Son of God endured for the sake of mankind. As children, Christians always told the story of how Jesus died for the sins of man. They just never really explained how horribly He died. Once you realize the atrocities that Jesus suffered, it changes the way you look at the image of the man on the cross. Don't forget the true mean ing of Easter. Be safe. Apologies For Slaverv, Jim Crow And Racism: Epilogue Over the past few months, recent reports have called to mind the adage "what goes around, comes around," espe cially coverage of the econom ic meltdown of companies like AIG, CSX and Lehman Brothers Holding, Inc. Why? The answer is they are among major corporations that today possess wealth that was created by slaves or at the expense of slaves. Indeed, these companies are not alone in their ties to slavery. Some of the companies apologized Others have not Since 2002, a series of events revealed the complicity of modern day companies and their in the slave trade. At that time, the state of California and the cities of Chicago, Richmond and Philadelphia passed legisla tion or ordinances requiring companies doing business with their institutions or within their jurisdiction to disclose their ties to or profits from slavery. In 2002, nine lawsuits were filed around the country seeking reparations from 20 companies. These companies range from banking and finance to the tobacco indus tries and continue to be tar gets of litigation today. According to USA. Today and other news sources, Aetna, Wachovia, Bank of America, New York Life, AIG, Manhattan Bank, FleetBoston Financial Group, Brown Brothers, Lehman Bros., Norfolk Southern, CSX, Union Pacific, Canadian National, Lloyd's of London, Ridder, Tribune, Stevens, Media General, Advance Publications, E. W. Scripps, Gannett along with R J. Reynolds and Brown and Williamson tobacco compa nies all have ties to slavery. "Lloyd's of London insured ships that brought slaves from Africa to America and cotton to the mills in New England and Britain. In 2006, Aetna admitted it issued insurance policies on slaves in the 185o's. Wachovia revealed it acquired the Georgia Railroad and Banking Company and the Bank of Charleston, institutions that owned and used slaves as collateral on mort gaged properties or loans. Having also released a dis closure in 2005, J.P. Morgan Chase revealed that predecessor institutions (Citizens Bank and Canal Bank) in Louisiana used slaves as col lateral on loans and accepted slaves as payments when owners defaulted on loans A seri. es of apologi es fol lowed revelatiOIJS of corporate ties to slavery : 'in early 2000, Aetna an apology and now 'funds college scholarships for Blacks and underwrites studies on racial health disparities.

A Centurv Of Miracles! A n ardent love r of oper:.t, his mos t favorite opera was I Trovatore by Guiseppe Verdi. Yet, in later years, h e took th e role of Rhadames, the Ethiopian general in a Chicago Grand Opera Company production of Verde's Aida. A lover of Shakespeare, race cars and bullfights (he actually had tails of several of the horned denizens to his credit), he authored several memoirs (one of them in French, which he spoke fluently), and he was overheard to admit, ''I am astonished when I realize that there are few men in any peri od of the world's history who have led a more varied or intense existence than I." This man who stepped into the ring, long before Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson, who knocked down white giants until he KO' d the wor)d, then married white women until marrying white women went out of style; was accused of breaking every moral law in the white man's universe, was jailed for ten months; on the third day he arose from the dead; was banished to Europe for a spell, then came back to America ; whupped two boxP.rs who were young enough to be his grandsons; sped off in a high-precision automobile; turned it over and died at the tender age of 68. This man whose name was fmther immortalized by actor James Earl Jones, in the Great White Hope has become the recent focus of none other than Senator and former Republican Presiden tial candidate John McCain, who along with Rep. Peter King (R-NY) -has taken it upon himself to get America's Black President, Barack Obama, to pardon America's first Black hcav:-r weight cham pi on boxer, .Jack A1t h u r .Johnson. One looks at .John McCain and wonders, h as h e falle n and bumped his h ead? Is this the same John McCain who almos t loos e d the rabid dogs of racis m against his Democratic presidential opponent Barack Obama ... the same man who grimaced whenever the two met in polite political debate? It is. And it is not. McCain has changed, or so it seems. Observers say McCain is up for reelection soon. And he realizes, thanks to many of his past political indiscretions (like failing to vote for the national acceptance of the Dr. Martin 0 Luther King, Jr. birthday holiday), that his days as representative of the people of Arizona may well be numbered. Not so, says McCain. A former boxer himself, McCain says he realizes the redemption of the reputation of Black boxer Jack Johnson is the right thing to do. So, John McCain has become a champion for a Black champion. Up to now, the White House has remained mum, waiting to see if this is a McCain ''Me-Trap." The Senator swears he's legit. So, should we support him as he becomes yet, ;mother example of an America attempting to get its past angst in order'? I say we should. For, apology is not only good for the soul, but it is good for a society Forget the fact that God and the Black Experience ha\'e already pardoned the great Jack Johnson. Understand that !itrangc d "0 JJ r-..... 0 1\) 0 0 1.0 lives Have Become So Meaningless f ;{" JI.lat h as happ ened. to J' J' beings? Don' t tlwy realiz e anymore how preci o u s lif e is? Apparently not. l'vlore p eople are bein g killed in th e stree ts of the United States than in any war. Peopl e a r e killing people with so much ease and no conscious, whatsoever. Parents are killing their chil dren children are killing their parents, relati ves are killing relatives and it doesn't stop there. Neighbors are killing neighbors and complete strangers are killing strangers. The news is full of the gory details of people killing people every day. The shame of it all is that it gets worse every day and almost nobody seems to care. People are breaking into homes and killing everybody in sight. People are kidnapping people and killing them. Parties and bars have become key sources for senseless killings. Then there are the dreaded drive-by killings. We all are familiar with them. These are s ituati o n s where people jus t driv e by and s h oo t \vildl y into occupied buildings or into crowds just s t anding on the streets. Wha t m a k es this situation eve n wo r se i s that the people doing the shooting don't have to know anybody in the building or the crow9 that they are shooting into When are Americans going to get fed up with this killing situation and rise up and do something about them? When are they going to demand that our policymakers and our law enforcement declares war on these killings and either puts a stop to them or greatly reduces the number of them, one way or another. One thing that has to be stopped, controlled or reduced is the number of guns out on the streets of our communities across America. Guns are in the hands of criminals, mentally ill people and in the hands of irrespon sible children. Not only is there a need to control the number of guns in our streets, there is a dire n ee d t o co ntrol w h o i s in possessi o n o f these guns I r es p ec t p eople's right to 0\\'11 and maintain guns in their homes for their protection. rBut carrying the m around through th e streets i s another matter. While I am concerned 0 about killing b y or among any race of people, I am especially concerned about killing of Black people by Black people. It is shameful to admit, but Black people live in fear of each other. Isn't that something? And to think we call each other sister and brother one minute and the next minute we take out a gun and shoot that same brother or sister dead. How do we stop this? Where do we start? I don't know, but there ought to be some one smart enough who cares enough to figure out the answer to these two questions. We need to do something and we need some answers quickly. That is just the way I see it.

But, West Tampa is far more than that. The Old West Tampa community is a collection of homes that have seen several generations pass through. It bears the history of segregation and memories of the Florida State Fair at North Boule\'ard and Cass Streets. West Tampa isn't a den of iniquity as some would have you believe. It s quite a safe place. West Tampa is a wonderful place with a lot of wonderful things. A lot of the old businesses aren' t around anymore, but the core of what makes West Tampa such a great place ha\'e gone nowhere. Whenever violent crimes are reported in West Tampa, the media and others draw the perception that all of WestoTampa is a war zone .. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are groups in West Tai11pa trying to attract new businesses and revitalization efforts have screeched to a halt. However, the area still has a lot of potential, and it has a group of caring and willing people who want \Vest Tampa to be a great community When one speaks of \Vest Tampa, it's importarit 't6'tilfr! ify which area. To be more specific, Old West Tampa is the area east of Armenia. It has historil' landmarks and walking historians who are more than happy to tell about the area's storied past.

State State Senator Reports On Mid-Session Progress :0 0 l> _-< l> "U :0 PART I OF II TALLAHASSEE It s a little p ast the mid-point in the 2009 annual Legislative Session and no.w, as during the earlier Special Session, the budget and Florida's failing economy continue to dominate the action in the Capital City. This week, both Senate and House committees tasked with carrying out its mandate to balance the state budget signed off on their respective spending packages And a little more than half a billion dollar difference stands between their proposals. But there are some big differences in how the Senate' s $65. 6 billion spending plan and the House's $65. 1 billion budget outline arrive at their bottom lines. The Senate's plan is to rely on $3 billion in federal economic stimulus dollars, along with an expansion of the gaming contract signed with the Seminole Indians that not only expands gambling on tribal lands, but in the state s pari-mutuel facili ties. The gambling proposal ; ould raise about $400 mil lion annually. The Senate is also looking to raise $68(> million through new f.ces and surcharges. Some of these new fees will be tacked onto license plates (from $12 to $25), and vehicle titles (from S 24 to $40). Filing a civil suit could go from $ 295 to as high as $2,000, and probate filings could rise from $280 to as much as $2,ooo. Finally, the Senate is also proposing imposing a hefty "surcharge on not just ciga rettes, but all tobacco products On the House side there is limited enthusiasm for expanded gambling and little support for taxing tobacco products. But their proposals hike fees even further than the Senate's ..... .. $8oo million in ne\{:fees and surcharges.

Local Activist Named Directress Of Cancer Research Department For Group BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor The Improved Benevolent Protective Order Elks of the World (l.B.P.O.of W.), Florida State Association of Temples, recently selected Daughter Ann Jenkins as Directress of the Cancer Research Department. The position is a voluntary role. One of the responsibilities of the department is to search for information on different kinds of c ancers, with it primary focus being on breast and prostate cancer. Once the information is compil e d it is taken to various communities through organizations, churches, social clubs sororities, fra ternities, etc. throughout the state. The information is then shared with members of the community through forums and workshops. Jenkins said her goal is to continue to reach out to the community and strive to make a different in someone's life. She further stated that she accepted the position because it will allow her to hold on to her loved ones who have fallen to this disease. Some of those include Renee Jenkins, ANN JENKINS ... Directress Of Florida State Association Of Temples Cancer Research Department Gretchen Hunter, and Sister Mary Smith. "It is an extremely serious problem and we can't wait for October of each year to talk about Breast Cancer Awareness or Prostate Cancer Awareness. Her goal is to be able to purchase a Mammogram Unit with the X-Ray equipment and have it placed in our community so that our sisters who can't afford health care and are unable to pay $1,500.00 for a Mammogram, can come and receiv e a fr ee Mammogram. Jenkins said when her friend and soror, Gretchen Hunter learned she had breast cancer she went to Moffitt Cancer Center to seek help. "Moffitt Cancer Center trained our support group, "The Pink Ribbon Awareness Inc," which died with Gretchen, because it was born because of her. However, through this program her memories will live on." She further stated that the Cancer Research Department campaign will kick off on June 27th with a Banquet/Fashion show at 4 p. m. at Beulah Baptis t Church, Rev A. L e on Lo\Vry Center, 1006 W. Cypress St. Jenkins said the colors for the event are pink and white. Additionally, pictures of loved ones who have succumbed to cancer will be displayed. She is also asking for support from the various Breast Cancer support groups in the area. For additional information about the fashion show, call Daughter Ann Jenkins (813) 770-3411 or Brother Elgin Franklin (629-3617). "TT :x:J 0 Businessman Makes Appeal To Local Black Attornevs }< )> ""C :x:J r Businessman Marvin Knight is appealing to African American attorneys to reach out and help the people who really need it. "Far too many Black people are going through the justice system with no representati on or a public defender.

Delano Stewart and other members of his firm. Atty. Stewart said he's been reaching out to the Black community for 45 years. "I'd like to see more African Americans using Black attorneys than I see now. But, nothing has changed, because we are still an underserved community. "When times get hard, people get desperate. I'm in the same boat economically as everyone else. I think Marvin is truly a good brother and very sincere." Atty.

Has earned the award twice Named 2009 MetLife Foundation Ambassador In Education Denver, CO -Tampa teacher Julia Cobb Barnes has been selected by the National Civic League as a winner of the 2009 MetLife Foundation Ambassadors In Education awardOr. Cobb Barnes was one of only 25 winners selected for leadership in building bridges between local schools and communities and will receive a $5,000 grant for her school at a local award ceremony. Dr. Julia Cobb Barnes of Young Middle Magnet School of Math, Science, and Technology has excelled both as an educator and a promoter of community service programs. Through her school-based community service club, she organized an after school "Feed the Children" campaign which, with the help of 212 students and parents, gathered 56 thousand pounds of food for hungry children in the U.S. She also developed an after-school community service program for Joshua House for Teenage Mothers and St. Francis House for AIDS Children.

Local Park Patrols Beefed Up To Protect Patrons City of Tampa Police p atrols at area p arks has been beefed up over the past month, mostly due to a cou ple of shooting incidents. According to officials, after school and evening patrols have bee n beefed up at 10 city parks. Among them are Giddens, Cyrus Greene, Fair Oaks, Grant Park, DeSoto, Palmetto Beach and Ragan. Di strict III Commander, Maj. Gerald Honeywell, said they now have two uniformed officers at each park during the day. "We beef up the patrols every year. After hours when the parks are closed makes it easy for us to identify people who aren't supposed to be there. Summer always starts early in East Tampa." Maj. Honeywell said more recently, Fair Oaks Park on 34th Street and Ellicott has been the scene of problems. "What happens at Fair Oaks is it has become the converging zone for several groups and gangs. They all meet at Fair Oaks and try to intimidate each other." Maj. Honeywell said his second in command, Captain Rocky Ratcliff, has developed a plan of action to deal with the problems in the area parks. City of Tampa Parks and Recreation spokesperson, Linda Carlo, said they MAJOR GERALD HONEYWELL instruct staff at the parks how to handle incidents. "We tell them if issues escalate, call the police We don't want our staff or security personnel to put themselves in harms way.

Sports Bucs' Winslow Highest Paid TE In NFl Historv KELLEN WINSLOW TAMPA --Kellen Winslow and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed Monday to a six-year, $36.1 million contract extension that will make the one-time Pro Bowl selection the highest-paid tight end in NFL history. Agent Drew Rosenhaus said the deal includes $20.1 million guaranteed, a record for a tight end. With incentives, it could be worth up to $42.1 million. Contract talks began soon after the Feb. 27 trade that sent Winslow, who participated in the Bucs' voluntary minicamp last week, to Tampa Bay from Cleveland in exchange for a secondround pick in this year's draft and a fifth-rounder in 2010. "The Bucs were open to something long-term," Rosenhaus said. "It's nice to get it done." Winslow was the sixth overall pick in the 2004 draft, and his career has been marked by plenty of highs, lows and controversy. The 25-year-old had 219 receptions for 2,459 yards and 11 touchdowns in five seasons with the Browns, and the Bucs are counting on him to play a major role in an overhauled offense next season. Subscribe 'lbday! -'M fY Sentinel Bulletin lB June Siuns With Houston CATO.JUNE HOUSTON --Free-agent linebacker Cato June has signed with the Houston T exa ns. June, who spent the past two seasons in Tampa Bay, started 14 games last year and finished with 67 tackles and one interception. The 29-year-old spent four seasons with Indianapolis before signing with the Buccaneers. He made the Pro Bowl for the 2006 season when he helped the Colts to a Super Bowl win with a career-high 142 tackles. A sixth-round draft pick in 2003, June has 498 tackles and 12 interceptions in his six-year career.

Judge Rejects Bid To Keep Michael Vick In Vi.ruinia Prison RICHMOND, Va. --Michael Vick will head back to a Kansas prison after a judge rejected an effort MICHAEL Tuesday to keep VICK the suspended NFL star in Virginia to work on a new bankruptcy plan. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank J. Santoro denied a motion Tuesday to require Vick to attend an April 28 status hearing on his case in N ewport News. Vick's lawyers had hop e d such an order would prompt U S. marshals to leave him at the Western Tidewater Regional Jail in southeastern Virginia until then. Santoro had ordered Vick to testify in person at a hearing last week; but the judge ruled Tuesday that he did not need Vick at the next hearing because no evidence will be presented. Vick and his lawyers are developing a new plan for the 28-year-old former Atlanta Falcons quarterback to pay back his creditors after Santoro rejected Vick's Chapter 11 r e organization plan on Friday .... 0 1\.) 0 0 <.0 "TT r 0 :c 0 CJ) m z :::j z m r;OJ c: r r m ::j z "'C c: OJ c CJ) ::I: m c m < m ::c -< -f c: m CJ) 0 z 0 "TT :c 0

Burress Wins $1 Million Grievance PLAXICO BURRESS Despite getting into trouble, Plaxico Burress can keep a $1 million signing bonus from the New York Giants, but Larry Johnson's salary in Kansas City i sn't guaranteed, according to a ruling issued Monday following a grievance hearing. University of Pennsylvania Special Master Stephen Burbank agreed with the NFL Players Association that money already earned, such as a signing bonus, cannot be forfeited even if a player subsequently gets into trouble. "Anything that's earned prior to conduct is the player's to keep," Berthelsen said.

Religious Remembering His Work (')The story of Jesus' U resurrection is one that will be acted out in plays and theatrical productions all over the world. Many people will remember the work of Christ to make it possible for us to live. The Gospel of Luke in 24:1-12 records the action and activities that took place at the tomb of Jesus. All to be learned was not only on the cross, but much to be gained from discovery at the tomb and the message that came from it. It occurred on the first day of the week that several women came to the tomb with spices to make final preparations for Jesus' body (vs. 1). But to their surprise, the stone that was in front of the tomb had been rolled away (vs. 2). It was against laws for a person to remain on the cross at the start of the Sabbath on Friday. Therefore, they had to hurriedly bury Jesus and later finish the burial process. Notice. those in attendance arid the time of their arrival. Those who went to the tomb were women who had an encounter with Christ or who had some connection to His ministry. The men who were closest to Him were not there. Why? Who knows? But, these women were so deter mined to fulfill their ministry and purposely arose early on the first day available for them to go. We must realize the work and ministry that has been placed in our hands and be willing to arise early and wait with eager anticipation for the first available day to per form our duty. In spite of the conditions of the tomb when they arrived they continued to move for ward. Seeing that the stone was already rolled away could have made them afraid to go 011. Because of the tension behind His ministry and death, danger could have been lurking. On the other hand, the stone being rolled away could also suggest that God will make arrangements prior to your arrival to help you do what you are called to do. To do the work and ministry of God, you must be willing to go even when it seems dangerous, but also believe that God will make provision for you before you arrive. The angels waiting for them at the tomb encouraged them to remember how He spoke to them when they were in Galilee (vs. 6). It is important for every believer to always remember the words that God and Christ has spo ken through the ages. Remember, what the Lord has already spoken will help alleviate some of the stress and trials that you will encounter on this journey. In times of tribulations, remem ber His words. When things are not going well, remember His words If you remember His words you might recall that He 75 5 W. Lumsden Road (Oak Park Center-Rear Right Corner) Brandon, Florida 813-657-7043 By Z:aith ... We Subdue, Conquer & Buil already told you what was going to happen, when it was going to happen, and what the end would be When they returned to tell the disciples what they had experienced, the disciples did not believe them and thought their testimony was an idle tale (vs. 11). These are men who have walked, talked, fellowshipped, and lived with Jesus. These are men who learned directly from Jesus and heard first hand all that He said. But yet, when they heard the report of these women they thought they were telling tales One would think that those who were the closet to "T1 ::0 0 Christ and had direct contact with Him would be the ones who readily identified the recalling of the word. l> "C ::0 ..... That is a lesson by itself. 9 Nevertheless, no matter who N 0 the individual is and his/her o (0 relationship with Christ, there are struggles at hearing the word if it is not a firsthand encounter We are all encouraged to remember the words that H e spoke. We must all be reminded that we have a call ing and ministry to fulfill. As you reme!Jlber the work of Jesus before the cross and on the sure to remember the ties at the tomb.

On Monday she was taken to the hospital and placed in the Intensive Care Unit. She died on Wednesday. The autopsy concluded she died of Leptospirosis. This was traced to the can of coke she drank from, not using a glass. Tests showed that the can was infected by dried rat urine and hence the disease Leptospirosis. Rat urine contains toxic and deathly substances. It is highly recommended to thoroughly wash the upper part of all soda cans before drinking out of them. The cans are typically stocked in warehouses and transported straight to the shops without being cleaned. A study at NYCU showed that the tops of all soda cans are more contaminated than public toilets (i.e. ) .. full of germs and bacteria. So wash them with water before putting them to the mouth to avoid any kind of fatal acci dent. Brushing Up On Children's Dental Health Acid erosion can be caused by many healthy foods that children consume daily as part of the modern diet, such as fruits and juices. Instead of eliminating healthy foods and beverages that may be acidic, like juices, apples and oranges, p arents should be aware of what else they can do to help protect their children's teeth from acid erosion. Simple steps parents can take include : Know what contributes to acid erosion. Foods and beverages with high acidic content include soda, fruit juice, ketchup, raisins and citrus fruit. Encourage children to drink acidic beverages with a straw and to avoid holding them in the mouth, minimiz ing contact with teeth. Give children a high-calcium snack or beverage, like a piece of cheese or milk, after consuming something acidic Talk to their child's den tist.

My name is Marsha, I'm 47 years old been living in Tampa Park for about 15 years now I am HIV positive, I found out I had it when I had my 3rd child becasue he was positive." To be honest when the doctors told me I was positive, I was like these people don't know what they are falking about. I don't know how I caught it, yeah I'm in the streets drinking and having unsafe sex. I felt like those people didn't know what they were talking about. I kept doing what I do best, hanging out at the .Dirty Bar and continued to have unsafe sex. I was iub denial for about 4 years until a Social Worker came to my door and told me they were taking my child away from me. So that's when it hit me to come to grips with this disease they call HIV. I wasn't going to let those people take my child away So I made my first step to accept this disease and admitted nyself to a DAACO program. I just know II have to get myself together for my kids.

Health COPD PART I What is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)? Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. It is caused by damage to the lungs over many years, usually from smoking COPD is often a mix of two diseases: Chronic bronchitis (say "bron-KY-tus"). In chronic bronchitis; the airways that carry air to the lungs (bronchial tubes) get inflamed and make a lot of mucus. This can narrow or block the airways, making it hard for you to breathe. Emphysema (say "em-fuhZEE-muh"). In a healthy person, the tiny air sacs in the lungs are like balloons. As you breathe in and out, they get bigger and smaller to move air through your lungs. But with emphysema, these air sacs are damaged and lose their stretch. Less air gets in and out of the lungs, which makes you feel short of breath. COPD gets worse over time. You can't undo the damage to your lungs. But you can take steps to prevent more damage and to feel bet ter. What causes COPD? COPD is almost always caused by smoking. Over time, breathing tobacco smoke irritates the airways and destroys the stretchy fibers in the lungs. Other things that may put you at risk include breathing chemiCal fumes, dust, or air pollution over a long period of time. Secondhand smoke is also bad It usually takes many years for the lung damage to start causing s y mptoms, so COPD is most common in people who are older th a n 6oYou m a y be more likely to get COPD if you had a lot of serious lung infections when you were a child People who get emphysema in their 30s or 40s may have a disorder that runs in families, called alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. But this is rare. What are the symptoms? The main symptoms are: A long-lasting (chronic) cough. Mucus that comes up when you cough Shortness of breath that gets worse when you exer cise. As COPD gets worse, you may be short of breath even when you do simple things like get dressed or fix a meal. It gets harder to eat or exercise, and breathing takes much more energy. People often lose weight and get weaker At times, your symptoms may suddenly flare up and get much worse. This is called a COPD exacerbatiom (say "egg-ZASS-er-BAYshun"). An exacerbation can range from mild to lifethreatening. The longer you have COPD, the more severe these flare-ups will be. Take Care Of Your Feet... .

Entertainment South African Reggae Star's Killers Get life Convicted killers, (L-R): Sifiso Mhlanga, Julius Gxowa and Mbuti Mabe, awaited sentencing in the Johannesburg high Court Thursday, April, 2, 2009. A judge sentenced three men convicted of murdering an internationally known South African reggae star in a botched carjacking to life in prison Thursday. Lucky Dube's 2007 killing drew worldwide attention to crime in South Africa, which has one of the world's highest murder rates. The 43-year-old singer was gunned down in his car in front of his children in subur:ban Johannesburg. Sifiso Mhlanga, Mbuti Mabe and Julius Gxowa were convicted Tuesday in Dube's death. Hours before the verdict was announced, Mabe and Mhlanga assaulted police officers in a foiled bid to escape from the court. Thokozani Dube, who was in the car when his father was shot, broke into tears as the sentences were announced and was comforted by his mother. "I'm satisfied .... I have closure," he later said outside the courtroom. Carlos Santana Wishes Obama Would Legalize Pot CARLOS SANTANA WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA -President Barack Obama brushed off a ques tion about legalizing marijuana in his online town hall last month, but Carlos Santana says he wishes he would seriously consider it. During his online town hall on March 26, Obama fielded a question about whether legalization of the illicit drug would help pull the nation out of recession. Obama said he didn't think it was good economic policy, and also joked: "I don't know what this says about the online audience." But Santana said making pot legal is "really way overdue, like the prohibition with the alcohol and stuff like that.

CLEVELAND -Pioneering rap group Run-DMC and soulicon Bobby Womack were among the acts induct-ed into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Saturday night, capping a star-studded ceremony that felt much more like a concert than an awards show. For the first time, the noholds-barred show, back in Cleveland following a 12-year holdover in New York's Waldorf-Astoria ballroom, was open to the public. And nearly 5,000 fans partied in the balconies inside renovated Public Auditorium as 1,200 VIPs dined below at tables costing as much $50,000 each. Many of the came to pay homage to an eclectic 2009 class that included metal llJ gods Metallica, virtuoso 6 guitarist Jeff Beck and rhythm ancl blues vocal group, Little Anthony and Cf the Imperials. With two turntables and a mi crophone, Run-DMC broke down the barriers betw ee n ruck a nd r ap. With sparse, stripped-down lyrics above pounding beats, the trio of Joseph "DJ Run" Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C."

"They were the baddest of the bad and the coolest of the cool. RunDMC changed my life "There's three of them, and if you grew up with hip hop like I did, they .were the Beatles." Their remake and collaboration with Aerosmith on the rock band's "Walh This Way" changed modern mUSIC.

Chris Brown Enters Not Guiltv Plea In Beating Case LOS ANGELES --Chris Brown pleaded not guilty Monday to threatening and assaulting his girlfriend, fel low music star Rihanna. The 19-year-old R&B singer entered his plea, speaking in a soft voice, while standing alongside his lawyer, Mark Geragos. His mother sat in the first row, red-eyed. Within moments of the hearing, a lawyer for Rihanna said the singer was hoping a plea deal could be reached before the case goes to trial. Brown was charged in March by Los Angeles County prosecutors with felony assault likely to cause great bodily injury and making criminal threats. He was arrested nearly a month earlier after police said he was involved in an early morning altercation with a woman who identified the singer as her attacker. Court records list Brown's victim as "Robyn F." Rihanna's real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Etra represented the 21CHRIS BROWN year-old "Umbrella" singer at Monday's arraignment, but did not speak during the five-minute hearing. He said afterward that the singer is in "fine spirits" and spending time with her fam ily in Barbados. Etra said Brown's plea was "totally expected If convicted, Brown could be sentenced to probation or nearly five years in prison. Neither side has publicly addressed Brown and Rihanna's relationship since the incident. But there has been discernible fallout and backlash since Brown's arrest.

Aries (March 21-April 19) -You can become efficient, but you will need to set limits. This, you certainly can do. Stick to the basics and leave the abstract theories to everybody else. You'll achieve control. Taurus (April 20-May 20) It's a beautiful day in the neigh borhood, and interesting, too. Listen carefully to the debate where your money is concerned. Don't fall for a trick that would cost you a lot. Gemini (May 21-June 21) You're a good juggler, but this is ridiculous! And you may be get ting nervous. That won't help anything Remember, you're the master communicator Ask for help. Cancer (June 22-July 22) Sometimes you get through with comfort food when nothing else seems to work. It isn t really cheating, but it sure can be effective They won' t even know what happened. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) It's a good day for sorting out details The trouble is, you may not be able to complete this task today. Toss ideas back and forth, but don't be dismayed if you don't reach a conclusion yet. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Travel looks good, especially if you take along a congenial companion. Choose a person who already agrees with you This trip will be a lot more fun without an argument. Libra (Sept. 23-0ct. 22) Don't get into an argument with someone who's emotional. He or she isn't able to fully listen to you now. Calm this person down as much as you can and di?cuss it later Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Competition spurs creativity, and you're seeing that among your own circle of friends. Support the ones who have a strong basic structure The trees with deep roots will survive Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -You can't do everything for everybody. Sometimes you have prior commitments that must take precedence Do the job but don't feel like you have to put in overtime. You have other obliga tions Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jali. 19) You're actually very lucky, but there is a disclaimer If yolj' trav el, for example, you're apt to leave something behind. A new idea you suggest will likely meet with opposition Proceed with caution. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) The rules of economics haven t changed. You still have to add up the numbers both down and across. And even if you have enough, don' t spend it all on one thing It's got to last you a while Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Competition keeps you on your toes, so don't be angry with a person who always seems to spot whatever it is that you missed If you can work together, you'll be an awesome team.

But there are also wonderful sites for African-Americans so we may learn more about our rich her i tage and many success stories. I recently came across www.b i ography.com which offers a won derful view of African-American History The site previews 101 facts about African-Americans, which includes rare facts such as Otis Boykin's invention of electronic controlled device for guided missiles and the pacemaker. Did you know that George T. Sampson invented a clothes dryer that used heat from a stove in 1892 or that Thomas J. Martin patented the first fire extinguisher? Another must see web site is www.black-inventor com which details the achievements of Mark Dean who helped to pioneer ihe early beginnings of IBM and the personal computer. There are many other inventors to read about in this online museum. www.Biack inventor.com is well designed and is loaded with information and bylines of historical creations by amazing but unheard of black inven tors. The sites also give tips, advice for future inventors on the horizon. After you are finished viewing black-inventor.com, head on over to www,ljttleAfrica,com which also offers a glimpse of all the extraor-0 dinary accomplishments by African-Americans.
