CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter In a letter dated April 4th, Brother Jarvis El-Amin addressed Curtis Stokes, President of the NAACPHillsborough County Chapter. El-Amin wrote the letter to address his concerns over issues where Black leadership has been attacked and its credibility "diminished to further disenfranchise the African-American communi ty. "In my opinion, an April 5th article published in the St. Petersburg Times demonstrates an obvious witch hunt on independent Black leadership has been in pursuit of justice and equality for all."

It' s obvious very little funding was spent in the African American community for voter education. Therefore, responsible leadership should investigate how much funding was spent in other communi-ties. " EL-Amin said his atvice in the community hatbeen -proven to Improve people's hardships and to restore hope. I am positive proof that rehabilitation does work and my past discretions are just that. The past. The ongoing articles being published are an attempt to create a distraction and minimize the effectiveness of what I've done in the African American community. I feel I've been uncompromising, and I am committed to service and bringing about equality in situations I believe otherwise would not be resolved in a fair and equitable manner. Among the issues ElAmin has fought for and accomplished are Muslim Civil Rights in the wake of September 11, 2001; convincing the Hillsborough County School Board to increase minority vendor participation in the bidding process; participated in the campaign to name a street in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ; partici p a t e d in the campaign to k ee p Rogers Park public le d the effort to bring justice to Martin Lee Anderson's family in the. boot camp killing; continued to advocate and deve1op strategic plans for Black business (813) 495-3702 1-352-4200 Foreclosure Assistance Workshop Planned CONGRESSWOMAN KATHY CASTOR BY IRIS B.

By 1870, the name Jim Crow was used to describ e state and local laws enacted mostly by southern and border states of America. Between 1870 and 1965, Blacks were denied the right to vote and other civil liber ties and were legally segregated from whites. In essence, these laws took away m a ny of the rights the United State's Constitution granted to freed slaves through the enactment of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments B e cause I was r a i sed during p art of the Jim Crow e ra, I a l ways wo nd e r e d "wh o Jim Crow \ vas.

He darkened his skin at the time with burnt cork and proceeded to portray exaggerated and stereotypical (lazy dumb, stupid and subhuman) Black characters. Called an "astounding success," Rice performed all over the United States .and Europe. In fact, Rice became the main attraction in minstrel shows, which were-deemed to be "one of the first native forms of American entertainment." Indeed, the characters "Jim Crow," "Jim Dandy," "Zip-Coon," "Sambos, "Coons," a n d "Dandies" thrille d white audie nces w h o readily "accepte d the portraya l s of B l ac k s as s in g ing, grinning d a n c in g foo l s".

"11 Columns ::c Black People And Change The middle name for Black people ha s got to be "Change!" Whether we're b e ing asked to change or made to change, most likely if there' s any change being done, Black folks are the one's who are in the middle of it. So, it came as no surprise when Black folks were informed that a change was about to be made with Central Park Village. For years, Black folks had expected it. But what we didn't expect was what didn't happen. What has happened with what used to be Central Park Village? Nothing. Where seemingly, has the progress gone? 'Beats me! So, what's the deal? Better still, what went down that obviously we didn't see? One thing's for sure. We can't blame the budget for everything. But since it became Black, in the 1940's, Central Park Village has always been in trouble. Yet, it wasn't alone. Robles Park was in trouble, too, as was Rembrandt, Belmont Heights and numerous other. predominantly Black public housing projects. We wonder. What was it that each of them and all of them had in common? Hmmm! What could it be? Or rather, what could it have been, since most of the housing projects I have named are no longer in existence. But that's a good thing! Isn't it? Pray with me for a moment. Not only throughout Tampa, Hillsborough County, but throughout urban America, housing pro jects have traditionally car ried a bad "rep." They have been seen Cj.S breeding grounds for crime, drug sales and drug addiction, juvenile delinquency, truancy and numerous other negative sit uations, so mucli r ; o tliat had the British author Charles Dickens been alive and liv.ing in 2o th centur y America, I'm quite s ur e he would hav e hung out in the projects. So, it is safe to say mo s t of America's public housing facilities have forever had hull's eyes on their backs. And we say, with good rea son. Therefore, it was right and we -whomever we might happen to be -did right to bring about change, where many housing projects were concerned. But what was the change that was brought to bear? After the wrecking crane and the bulldozer, what happened, actually and visually? Come on! Think fast! You've got ten seconds to tell me what good or substantial thing has taken place to fill the vacancies left by most mowed-down public housing facilities! TIME'S UP! I've got an answer. The population changed! Even if some of the original population remained, most often the majority of the people who once lived in the so -called projects were dispersed t o the four corners of the earth. And that's a good thing! Isn t it? Isn t that what change is all about? Isn t change about so-called measurable upward mobility? Of course it is! So, when we look at what used to be Central Park Village, what do we currently see? CHANGE! That's what we see. Dus t blowing in the breeze is what we see! But what don't we see? We don't see Black peopl e And therein lies the rub, Mr. Dickens! As I said earlier, Black people have always been the center of change. What is it I once heard an old settler say? He said, Some people make you happy when they come in. And other people make you happy when they go out! So, I guess change brings happiness. But when you think about what used to be Central Park Village, who do you think is laughing? B lack American Insight continued from page 4-A dent participating in a skit portrayed current President Barack Obama in blackface, receiving a lap dance. I don't have to tell you about the furor the incident created That a litany of such incidents has taken place and continues to take place on American college campuses is the reason we should teach our children never to accept anyone who uses blackface to portray Blacks. Let Jim Crow die! No one will mourn hi. s death. Harambee! ):> "'C :c r-Raising Children Is The Kev We constantly hear a bout the ever increasing numbe r of Black m e n locke d away in pri so n. We r egularly moan about the number of young Blacks that a re dropping out of high school. Blacks own few businesses, provide few residents' facilities, provide few jobs and loan very little money. What is the reason for all of these facts of life? We can always blame it on discrimination and segregation. We can always blame it on govern ment. We can always blame these shortcomings on a lack of Black leadership. To place blame is easy to do. Assuming all these sources of blame is true, these rea sons are not new. So, how long are we going to hide behind these reasons and sit on our thumbs wait ing for all of these reasons to resolve themselves? There are maqy reasons why Blacks are in the situation that we are in. One major reason is our failur e to raise our children today. Even worse is so m a ny parents don't know how to properly raise their children. The reason for that can b e traced to the fact that today, so many of our children are born to mothers who are not more than babies themselves. Generally, the father is missing and the very young mother struggles try ing to be a child and a moth er at the same time. Usually, discipline consists of a spanking, a punch, a cursing that would make a sailor proud or some other form of child abuse. No emphasis is placed on educa. tion, moral values, exposure to educational ventures, no curfews; no emphasis on time and no positive role model influence in the home. It is not unusual to find young girls between the ages of IS and 21 with three or four young children who have thre e or four different daddiei. It is also not uncommon to hear these young rhbthers say of their four or five-year olds that I can't do anything with th a t child. If you can't do any thing at four or five years of age, what can you do at 14 or IS-years of age? Seldom does a child do positive things when they are not exposed to positive things. There is a wise old saying that you can tell a tree by its fruit. The same can be said of a child Usually, the child is a product of his or her environment and the people that influence their development. Raising a child does not 'TI mean buying the child a car, r buying expensive clothes, a variety of toys or giving the c child a lot of money to l> spend.

It is hard to remember who first left the indelible image of what psychotic evil l ooks like. Was it the real life Ted Bundy or the iconic Michael Myers from the popular Hallowee n movie franchises? Over the years the lines have been blurred to the point of being indistinguish able. But there is one thing that remains crystal clear. Things are getting worse. And reality, it seems, is b ecom ing increasingly stronger and more brutal than fiction. The five shooting sprees that have recently o urred across the country, in uding one where several derly people were gunned!down inside of a North Carolina nursing home, shows the heartless nature of the indi viduals committing such vile acts There was a time when we had to turn to the big screens to see unbelievably cruel displays of violence. Not anymore From f athers throwing their children off bridges, to brothers beheading their younger siblings, real-world monsters are b ecoming far mor e vicious than a nything a film producer could ever cre a t e And it do esn t m atter if you believe that this n ew surge in m ayhem is indicative of Biblic a l prophecy being ful filled or part of some secret government ex periment involving mind co ntrol.

Higginbotham, who represents District 4, said his concern is that there is not enough input from the community. This year's budget will probably be a shortfall of about $60 million. However, it in unclear as to where those cuts will appear. County Administrator Pat Bean has already announced that approximately 1,000 jobs may be lost because of the shortfall. Commissioner Higginbotham quickly cleared that since 2006, the County has lost only 47 full time positions. Comm. Higginbotham said the commissioners are currently meeting with various county departments in the gathering stages to see where the shortfalls will qccur. Work on the budget will probably be complete by June, there will be workshops and then commissioners have until Sept. to approve and pass it. Comm.

As the people have witnessed the resurrection of Jesus Christ they are poised for more direct instruction. Jesus spends His last days on earth giving His disciples final instructions and clarity to prepare them for the ministry that is before t}lem. Throughout His time and ministry the disciples had not completely comprehended all that Jesus was doing and saying. They struggled within themselves to grasp why a man who was so powerful and wise would allow Himself to be subjected to all that He had gone through. The y are not at a place and point that Jesus could give them com plete understanding and open their e yes t o everything. J esus told them to remember the words that He said to them while they were together (vs. 44). Jesus reminded them of the things they had been previously taught The remembering of the information they had been taught Church Directory Worship Service Location Blaise Alfano Conference Center 11606 N.

BISHOP MATTHEW WILLIAMS Past o r "A Church Where The Love Of God Flows And The Holy Gl_lost Is In Full Control." will be critical for their effectiveness in ministry. It is vitally important for people in today's church to understand the importance of being taught. They must be taught directly by God through His spirit and revelation from His word and they must be willing to be involved in the educational ministries of the church under the leadership of the pastor. The y must be well rounded. They must r ecall the information that was spoke n of and about Jesus f rom the various sources written and used. Jesus made specific mention of the law, t h e prophets and the psalms. T o u s today, this represents the entire Old Testament. If we are going to be witnesses and testify about Him we must know as much as we can about Him. Although they learned a lot in that short span of time, they did not comprehend or understand it all a t the time. He had to now give them understandin g of all the things that they had seen and heard of Him. There are many who know the scriptures, but they do not have an understanding of the scriptures. There are many who read the scriptures, but do not understand the application and life manifestation of what they have read. What makes it difficult to be a witness or testify about the word and work of Christ is not having an understanding. It is to use your tion as an example of witness if not understand what has happened yourself. Although they have been taught and given understanding, they must wait until they are endued with power (vs. 49). It will require power and authority to be a witness for Christ. Many people want to run out and tell what they know. But Jesus instructed them to wait until the Holy Ghost comes. There must be a tarrying period in every believer's life. There must be time that you spend in waiting for the Lord to complete the preparation for you to be ready to go out into the world to be a witness. This power is necessary because you never know who you will encounter when you go out there into the world to tell someone about the Lord. Before He left them, He blessed them (vs. 50). He gave them a parting blessing. He passed on the blessing of the Father to them for doing the work of the Father. God rewards you for your work and dedication to His work. The saying of old is true, "Serving the Lord will pay off after while". You are called to be His witness. You are called to tell someone about the Lord. It may not all make sense to you at first, but if you continue to talk to the Lord and spend time with Him, He will give you complete understanding. You have to tell someone; you cannot keep it to yourself. ST. MATTHEW M. B.

Health News Three Tvoes Of Headaches To Watch Out For Although a bad migraine might m ake you wish for the end of everything, headaches are not usuall y life threatening However, a severe headache can signal something much more serious, requiring emergency attention such as stroke, ane!.trysm, and meningitis. These are not terribly common, but it's worth watching for a headache that feels markedly different from normal-even if normal is agonizing. Signs to watch for: A stiff neck and fever. This could be a sign of meningitis, an inflammation of the mem-bra nes sunoundin g the cen tral nervous s y s tem, which ca n quickly become c riti cal. Severe nausea or vomiting and any neuro-defic it (such as difficulty speaking or walking), which could be signs of a hemorrhagic stroke. A headache that's far worse than anything you've ever had. If you go to the emergency room, expect the doctors to perform a CT scan, which can reveal a bigger problem. CalmingChickenpox Chickenpox, and its trade..: mark itchy, red spots, is a com. mon disease in children. Here are a few suggestions for relieving the itch and keeping your child more comfortable: Have your child soak in a warm oatmeal bath every few hours. Apply cool, damp rags across your child's body. Gently pat your child's body dty. Don't mb or scratch the itchy spots Dab the pox with calamine lotion, everywhere but on the face.

What You Need To Know About Sugar Alcohols;J What are Sugar Alcohols? The term "sugar alcohol" is very misleading. Su ga r alcohols get their n a m e from their unique chemical structure, which resembles )Joth sugar and alcohol. But they're neither sugars nor alcohols. In fact, sugar alcohols are a type of carbohydrate that sweetens foods, but \vith half the calories of sugar. There are several specific types of sugar alcohols (usually ending with the letters "-ol") When reading a food lab e l the follm,ving ingredients a r e actually sugar alco hols: Erythritol, Hydrogenated starch, hydrolysates, Isomalt, Lactitol, Maltitol Mannitol, Sorbitol and Xylitol. Look familiar? You'll find sugar alcohols in a wide variety of foods (gums, candies, ice creams, baked goods, and fruit spreads), health and beauty products (toothpastes, mouthwashes and breath mints), and even medicines (cough syrups, cough drops and throat lozenges). In the near future they may be found in pic fillings, cake frostings, canned fruit, beverages, yogurt and tabletop sweeteners. Why Use Sugar Alcohols? You may wonder why manufacturers would put sugar alcohols in foods and other products, or why people might seek them out. Here are a few reasons why co n sumers choose these products: Fewer calories. Sugar alcohols contain fewer calories (0.2 to 3 calories per gram) than sugar (4 calories per gram) does, m aking them a dietfriendly choice for people who want to limit their calori c intake, but still enjoy swee t foods. Safe for diabetics. Sugar alcohols are absorbed more slowly (and incompletel y) by the body. Unlike regular sugar, they require little or no insulin for m e tabolism. People with diabetes should consult their physician, di e titian or other health professional about incorporating sugar alcohols into their daily meal plans. Better dental health. Sugar alcohols do not promote tooth decay since they are not metabolized. by the b ac teria that produce dental cavities. Fewer drug interactions. Sugar alcohols do not react with the pharmacologic ingredients in medicines as much as sugar sometimes can. Individual tastes. The differ ent types of s ugar alcohols vary in sweetness, from being about half as sweet to equ ally sweet as sugar. In addition to consumer desires, s ugar alc o hols a ppeal to manufacturers too. H e re s why: Sugar alcohol s do not Jose their swe e tn ess wh e n h e ated. S ugar alcohols do not absorb water like suga r does. Therefore the surface of foods made with sugar aleohols won't become sticky as quickly as products made with sugar. Molds and bacteria do not grow aud multiply on sugar al cohol s as well as they do on s u gar. They ca n use a combination of s ugar a l co h ols, s ugar and/or artificia l sweeteners to giv e th e most pl easant taste, appearance, and t exture to a food product. Are Sugar Alcohols Safe? Sugar alcohols have b een used for years. After careful r e view, scientists have concluded that the y are safe for human consumption. In the United States, the ,Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies some s ugar alcohol s as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) and others are approved as "food additives For some people, consuming certain sugar aleo hol s in ex cessive amounts may cause gastrointestinal upsets s uch as gas, bloating and diarrhea. Wheth e r or not you will experience problems will depend on your individual sen sitiv it y l eve l and the other foods yo u consume at the same time. lt i s best to find your indi vid u a l tolerance l eve l when u sing these food ingredients, and to avoid them i f th ey cause dis comfort.

David "Pop" Winans Sr., of the Grammy-nominated group the Winans, passe d away Wednesday at the age of76. The patriarch of one of the most-respected gospel fami lies died at a Nashville hos pice following complications from a stroke and a heart attack he suffered last October. According to reports, his wife Delores "Mom" Winans was at his bedside at the time of his passing. "Pop" Winans made a name for himself following his first Grammy nomination for his 1999 solo CD, Unc.ens ored. Winans and his wife Delores recorded a joint disc together, Morn & Pop Winans, which was also nominated for a Grammy. A native of Detroit, Winans began singing with a gospel quartet at the age of 18 He was the father of popular gospel singers BeBe and CeCe Winans." Four other children -Michael, Marvin, Carvin and Ronald -performed as the Winans, with other family members joining in from time to time. c a: LL. c z c::r ludacris Welcomes lil Scrappv To label On Sunday night at (/) Atlanta's Philips Arena, Ludacris announced that Lil t-Scrappy has joined his Disturbing Tha P eace label.

That's why the Vibe Verses Presents No.1 Stan competition will feature a group of aspiring MCs hand-picked by none other than Slim Shady. In celebrati o n of the upcom ing "Real Rap" issue of the magazine, and Erninern's upcoming R elapse album, Vibe is launching a contest in which participants are asked to upload a 60-second video clip of themse l ves freestyling over the instrumental track from Em's iconic tune "Stan." Entries are due by April 21. The magazine wi ll send the. top 10 finalists (determined by Vibe.com user votes). Method Man, Redman Return With Blackout2 ME'FHOD MAN And REDMAN Redman and Method Man are finally putting out a sequel to their 1999 classic, Blackout! "I had obligations. Doc had obligations," Method Man said, explaining why it's taken 10 years for the two of them to put out a new album. "There were things going on [with] the label. Staff changes. That's what happened." Since that joint LP, Red and Meth have dropped solo' LPs, toured together nonstop and starred in various film and TV projects, not to mention Meth's various Wu-Tang Clan albums. "We was out venturing, starting other careers," Red said. "We can't just depend on this rap game. We did a movie, TV show -venturing out: Now we back. We ain't left. We're coming at the right time. The duo started formulating the Blaclwut 2 last year when they had a stint on the Rock the Bells tour. Red and Meth leaked a viral video called "Ayo" on Thursday, and a clip f o r "Miss Inte rnational" will air soon.

Entertainment Chris Brown Hanging Out With Friends LOS ANGELES --Chris Brown isn't going to let something like his arraignment get in the way of having a good time. Brown was photographed at a Sunse' t Boulevar d tattoo parlor with singer, Natalie Mejia. Mejia confirmed that she's the woman in the pies, but d eclined to comment on the nature of her and Brown's r elationship. (Brown is also said to be seeing an ex, college student, Erica Jackson). Mejia was not seen, howev er, when Brown was spotted later on at about midnight entering Lucky Strike through a back entrance. He made a beeline for the private Luxe Lounge, where he was joined by Transformers star Tyrese Gibson, Omarion and Dreamgirls actor Keith Robinson. The posse munched on chicken bites and fries, and Brown "appeared happy and was dancing around." Chris Brown Not Dating Natalie Mejia Or Erica Jackson A day after conflicting reports emerged about Chris CHRIS BROWN And NATALIE MEJIA Brown dating a former home town girlfriend and spending time with Natalie Mejia, Brown's people have report ed ly said that neither story is true. A spokesperson for Brown, 19, claimed that photos taken over the weekend of the singer leaving the West Hollywood Tattoo Mania parlor in the company of Mejia, 20, and another man don't mean anything. "Chris was in a Hollywood tattoo parlor with a woman from the recording studio named Dean, who was getting a tattoo. "Natalie Mejia was there with Dean," the source added. The rep also said that reports claiming Brown is back together with a former hometown Virginia girlfriend, University of Mary Washington student Erica Jackson, are a l so false. Brown was recently photographed shooting hoops at Mary Washington and posing with the women's basketball team on a visit that coincided with the school's "White Ribbon Campaign" devoted to raising awareness about vio lence toward women. T.l. To He-Release paper_ Trail' Before Going To Prison T.I. aka Clifford Harris, Jr. said he wants to spend the time before his upcoming prison stint with his family, but the Grand Hustle rapper ilurprised many when he popped up onstage with Young Jeezy and Ludacris last weekend in Atlanta. His plans may include a family vacation and seeing one more birthday, as Tip told MTV News' Sway. But T.I. also intends to re-release his album Paper Trail with new tracks before the year's end, so an appearance here and there to tease some new records might be in order. T.I. said the project will include five additional songs. He acknowledged he has a number of tracks he's already recorded to choose from: an early, leaked version of Paper Trail featured collaborations with The-Dream ("Like I Do" ) and Ciara ("My Dear") that didn't make the initial commercial release of the album. The radper also has his T.I. hands on a Kanye West verse that was scrapped from the album to make way for the Roc-A-Fella star's guest turn on "Swagga Like Us." "I'm still in the process of picking the songs," T.I. said. "But I'm also still recording. I'm able to record any time -through the best of times and through the worst of times, I'm still able to record. It may change the sort of song you do, but you never can tell. You never know until that moment gets there." "T1 JJ c }< l> "0 JJ j" ...... -...J 1\) 0 0 <0 ., r 0 JJ en m z ::! z m r;aJ c:r r m -t z ., c: aJ r u; :I: m c m < m -t c: m en 0 l> z c "T1 JJ c

A Virtual World is a computer based simulated environment, which allow users to interact based on avatars The avatars are graphical representations of us the computer users. In short much like a online game where users are able to interact which each other by sending messages and communicating in real time, a cyber world meeting place. Recently, I came across virtual.mtv .com which after a brief registration allows you to design your own avatar and enter a exciting 30 virtual world. However the virtual site did take some time to and interact. I suggest you use a fairly fast computer to successf.ully enter the site and enjoy separate worlds of doing your own laundrY., touring a Hollywood studio, hanging out with friends and even designing your own colorful crib. The benefits of Virtual Worlds however are beyond entertainment. Businesses can cut cost by deploying world s to train staff, present projects and save money on transporting employees. The military has already invested millions in Virtual Worlds to train troops in defense of the armed forces. Eyeing its advantages Microsoft and Intel have been investing millions in Virtual Worlds expansion as well. In 2008 a Judge in the Netherlands ruled that stealing goods and violence in Virtual Worlds is a crime and therefore sentenced a teenager to 90 days jail or 160 hours of unpaid work for attacking and stealing from another teenager in a virtual room.
